Beach Bell 2nd Quarter
MLS Analysis For The
Forgotten Coast

Richard Bell has released his 2nd quarter multiple listing ser-
vice analysis for the "forgotten coast" which includes detached
residential properties, attached single family homes (town
homes) condominiums and residential lots for Carrabelle, St.
George Island, Apalachicola, Eastpoint, Cape San Bias and
Mexico Beach.
Tables 1 and 2 reflect sales of residential lots and detached
homes and have diminished some; there still appears to be a
robust market for those categories. In the 2nd quarter, St.
George Island is no longer the leader in average prices, now
taken over by the sales of four lots in Apalachicola, averaging
$1,708,750. Prices have increased some in the Carrabelle area
to an average of $485,800 with the sale of five properties. Prices
still remain the lowest in the Port St. Joe area apparently.
Sixty-nine detached residential homes were sold in the 2nd
qliarter, averaging $325,000; 997 such properties were still
on the market.
There is not room to publish Mr. Bell's analysis of other mar-
kets, but his report included the following commentary on other
properties.
Detached Single Family
* The Pensacola and Tallahassee markets remain healthy with
less than 8 months worth of supply and median sales prices
of $165.000 ($102 pf) and $199,000 ($128 pf), respectively
* The Forgotten Coast has the most excess supply at 43.3
months with a median sales price of $325,000 ($221 pf).
* The Emerald Coast is split with four of the most affordable
markets having 9.1 months of supply or less. Conversely, seven
other submarkets have 31 months worth of supply or greater.
Sub area 18 South Walton East (Seaside area) has the great-
est imbalance (111 months of supply) and the highest sales
prices (averaging $1,434,482 and $611 pf).
* Comparing to 2Q2005 absorption rates, all markets have
declined: Pensacola -18%, Emerald Coast -24%, Bay -28%,
Forgotten Coast -54%, and Tallahassee 29%.
Condominiums
* Besides Tallahassee, most markets have excess supply of 15
months or greater. Due to presales, the long term nature of
condominium construction, and contract assignments, it is
unclear as to the extent of the imbalance.
* Bay County (mostly from the Beach submarket) had the high-
est absorption at 476 units averaging $337,329 ($304 pf).
* Due to the commercial nature of condominium property in-
surance, rate hikes are projected to be especially acute for
this asset type. This cost will be directly passed to the indi-
vidual owners via association dues.
Residential Lots
* Tallahassee has 16.4 months of supply with others having 3
years or greater.
* Although the most extremely imbalanced with 341 months
of supply, the Forgotten Coast has highest median price at
$245,000. Other markets are selling at $80,000 or less.
* With vacant lots being the ideal asset to "flip" during the

Diminished Sales Brings
St. Joe Layoffs

Florida's largest private landowner, the St. Joe Company, an-
nounced Friday, August 12th, that an undisclosed number of
employees had been laid off in three divisions of the company.
A spokesperson in Jacksonville announced that the company
is merging Commercial, Land, and Towns and Resorts divi-
sions into one company.
A "slowdown" in real estate markets is the reason for the lay-
offs, according to the St. Joe Company.


Evaluation And Appraisal
Report (EAR) For
Franklin County

Publisher's Note: What follows are excerpts from a lengthy
EAR Report written on behalf of the county by Wilson Miller,
Tallahassee. The report has been reviewed by Franklin
County Planning and Zoning and forwarded to the Franklin
County Commission. The report is due to the Dept: of Com-
munity Affairs by 1 September 2006. DCA and Franklin
County agreed to focus this report on three major topics:
affordable housing, local mitigation strategy and water ac-
cess. These issues are discussed in the following excerpts
from draft report.
Introduction
Pursuant to Florida law, comprehensive land use planning is
a "continuous and ongoing" process constantly evohling to
react to changing conditions. As a planning tool, a compre-
hensive plan must remain current if it is to be effective in
guiding future growth for the benefit of individual property
owners as well as the general public. It is with this in mind
that the Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) process \\as
created through the adoption of section 163.3191, Florida Stat-
utes, to ensure that all local comprehensive growth manage-
mentplans are periodically subject to a review process so tha t
they remain relevant to the communities that they serve.


S 315,1U ',7,, Franklin County has maintained a comprehensive plan since
1991. In 1996 it undertook an Evaluation and Appraisal Re-
S330,000 S330,000 port Process and in 2004-2005 completed a comprehensive
S>330,000 330, visioning process that culminated in the adoption of EAR based
$769,333 $582,000 amendments. In spite of the recent revisions to its plan.
Franklin County is required by Florida law to participate in
the EAR review process and to submit a report to the Flonda
$1,708,750 S850,000 Department of Community Affairs no later than September 1.
S288,191 S170,000 2006. Because of the County's recent EAR based amendments.
the Florida Department of Community Affairs and the county
agreed to focus this EAR on three major topics: (1) Affordable
Housing, (2) Local Mitigation Strategy, and (3) Water Access.

Major Issue 1:
Affordable Housing
Historical comparisons of Franklin County to the state as whole
reveal that the County has had a high percentage of low and
very-low income residents. Census data shows that the value
of housing within Franklin County is increasing. This is due
in part to the County's transition from an agriculture and fish-
ing-based economy to one that is more tourism-based. As
larger, more expensive vacation homes are built, the types of
jobs that are being created are generally in the lower-paying
service sector. This, coupled with the County's historic need
for lower-income housing, creates a need for the County to
examine closely the ways in whichit can encourage the devel-
opment of affordable housing.

Low Profile of the Eastpoint Theatre Continues

Eastpoint Theatre
Operators Review
Offerings Of
Concessionaire Trade
Show In San Antonio

Progress on the new Eastpoint Theatre has been slow but a
number of important decisions regarding the facility have been
made and put into motion. First, H-B Engineering (Tallahas-
see) is drafting the remodeling of the theatre interior including
stage area, projection rooms, the concession area, and the
lobby. Vulcan Steel (Adel, Georgia) has ordered'the exterior
building into production with delivery tentatively set for No-
vember 2006, the end of hurricane season. The first of three
35mm projection machines have been ordered for a tentative
setup to learn how to operate them, and to adapt the machin-
ery for 6-channel sound, along with a myriad of accessories. A
professional 16mm Elmo projector has also been ordered from
Cinevision (Atlanta) and editing rewinds for 16mm and 35mm
films. Continued on Page 6


Pictured here are the sur-
veyors from Brown and
Associations, Crawford-

Eastpoint Theatre. An
overview of the revised
structure is depicted be-

auditoriums, one with
about 280 seats and a
second sitting about 60
persons. The second au-
ditorium will be available
for other types of venues
such as private meetings.
The main auditorium will
feature stadium seating,

To preserve sightlines in
a stadium seating con-
figuration, the projection
area will be located at the
third floor, about 6 feet
above the projection
sightline so a person as
tall as 6-1/2 feet will not
block out the projected
image. 35mm and 16mm
projection will be avail-
able in the small audito-
rium in addition to digi-
tal video. The large audi-
torium will have 35mm
capability.

Dixie Youth all-star Baseball


Team is here this morning to
receive Board recognition for
their recent accomplish-
ments. While the team was

tition, they however were the
first boy's all-star baseball
team from Franklin County, to
make it to that level.
Administrative Director
Mr. Alan Pierce made the fol-
lowing report:
Board action to allow City of
Carrabelle to use right-of-way
on River Road and Airport
Road in Carrabelle for a 12
inch water main. Construc-
tion will consist of trenching
with the exception of a pro-


posed directional bore within
the right-of-way of Airport
Road to traverse a storm drain
and a directional bore under-
neath River Road. Contractor
will be required to restore con-
struction area to precon-
struction conditions.
"I submitted a budget request
to the County Finance Office
on behalf of the Seafood Task
Force. The Task Force desires
keeping Mr. McLain as a paid
Coordinator. The Task Force
asked for $20,000 from the
county, and the Univ. of
Florida is matching that with
$10,000. There is no action
needed now as it will come up
during the budget workshop."
Inform Board that Mr. Rick
Holden, field inspector for the
USACOE, visited the Roux
property on Bay City Road
with a DEP inspector on Wed.,
July 26. Mr. Holden has not
yet announced their findings.
Since the inspection has been
made, the county will not is-
sue any more building per-
mits until Mr. Holden's re-
leases his assessment.
Inform Board that I received
a letter from Garlick Environ-
mental in response to Mr.
Keith Hardy's concerns about
the Shell Bay project. I have
turned over the Hardy letter
and the Garlick response to
the Board of Adjustment who
will be hearing this matter on
Wed. Aug 2.
Inform Board that DOT has
contacted the St. Joe Com-
pany regarding the creation of
a hurricane debris staging
area on the eastern end of the
county for Franklin County
debris. St. Joe has-contacted
me and I have said the county
would like for St. Joe to pro-
vide a debris area on the east-
ern end of the county.
Inform Board that it has re-
ceived a letter from Sec.
Bronson, Dept. of Agriculture,
thanking the Board for its
support of alternative red tide
toxicity testing.
Board action for Chairman to
sign Amended Ordinance cor-
recting a Scrivener's Error on
property that rezoned last
May. The property was adver-
tised to be changed from A-2
to R-3, on unit per five acres.
The advertisement ran that
way, the public and the prop-
erty owner understood it to be
one unit per five acres, but
when the Ordinance was
typed up, it was typed as R-5,
instead of R-3. Board action
for Chairman to sign
Amended Ordinance correct-
ing Scrivener's Error. The
Board approved.
The South Shoal development
has nuv..r.ecei\ed .their DEP
permit for construction sea-
ward of the CCCL. I have spo-
ken to South Shoal and they
want to move forward with
their project. There is not yet
a signed South Shoal.PUD
Ordinance beyond the original
PUD. Because of the time de-
lay, the lot reconfiguration,
and issues associated with
who will pay for road reloca-
tion, I recommend the Board
hold an advertised public
hearing to consider amending
the South Shoal PUD to in-
clude the reconfigured lots,
and to include language that
is accurate of how the road re-
location project is going to
proceed. Because of advertis-
ing requirements, and budget
hearings, the earliest the
Board could consider this
project will be on Sept. 5. The
Board approved.
Ms. Gayle Dodds, Health
Council Vice-Chair, and Hos-
pital Board Chairman, wants
to inform the Board that the
Health Council is going to take
a few months off and then
perhaps come back in the fall
as an advocate for health' re-
lated issues. The Health
Council recognizes that with
the appointment of a Hospi-
tal Board that a great deal of
the urgency to deal with
health care in the county now
is the responsibility of the
Hospital Board. To that end,
at the Budget workshop I will
be recommending that the
funding for the Health Coun-
cil be directed to the Hospital
Board for its use.
Board direction on search for
new Hospital CEO. Black-
Hawk Management is willing


to bring a replacement fro'ti
Iowa for the Board to consider,
when Mr. Wolff leaves at the'"
end of September. Commis-'
sioner Lockley would like to'
have more than one candidate'
to interview. The Board de-,
cided to request the Hospital
Board seek a wider range of
candidates than just the.
BlackHawk choice.
Provide Board with approach
I am taking regarding the'
Evaluation and Appraisal Re-:
port (EAR). The DCA notified
the county in writing that ilt
could not grant an extensions.
from the Sept. 1, EAR dead-
line. DCA states in the letter
that the county can not
amend its comp plan until the
EAR is submitted. In order to.
keep some structure to the
process, and attempt to com-
ply with state law, the August
Planning and Zoning Commis-
sion meeting will be used as a
public workshop to receive
public comments on the EAR.
I have advertised the August
meeting to be such. I have in-
formed the RiverKeepers and
other interested parties of'
this. I will then report back to
the County Commission on
Aug. 15t1 the results. At this
time, the first public hearing
regarding the EAR is still'
scheduled for August 15th.

PUBL& HEARING

Freida White Moore
Vows to Sue County
Ms. Moore, a realtor and de-
veloper from Carrabelle, has
voiced a serious objection to
the County's approval of a
proposed development in the
New River and Mill Rd. area.
Ms. Moore who was the pre-
vious owner of the land in
question claims that she was
denied the opportunity to de-
velop this portion of a larger
section which she has since
sold and developed, She was
denied the opportunity to de-
velop this approximate 29+.
acre property via demands of
the DCA and the County sev-
eral years ago, she claims. The
new owner, a Mr. Cressup,
disputes her interpretation of
the sale events and denies Ms.
Moore's allegations with re-
gards to any permanent re-
strictions being placed on the
property.
Reluctantly. Ms. Moore made
it clear that if the County pro-
ceeded to approve Mr.
Cressup's rezoning request
and future development
plans, she would be forced to
sue Franklin County based on
the ancient adage that what
is good for the goose should
also be good for the gander.
The Coiunty uiifoitfifnately was
placed in a Wisdom of
Solomon type situation. If
they decide in favor of Ms.
Moore. Mr. Cressup will be
forced to Sue for what he con-
siders his personal property
rights; so one way or the other
the County is going to be
sued.
Naturally when this conflict
was brought to the attention
of the Board at a previous
meeting the Board requested
legal investigation and advise.
Mr. Shuler who has property
interests in the development
area in question had to recuse
himself and local Attorney
Nicolas Yonclas was called in
to perform these duties on
behalf of the County.
"As I understand the situa-
tion," explained Attorney
Yonclas. "The first New River
Development was proposed in
1995. There was a sketch plat
submitted to P&Z which was
approved and then (it was
brought) to this commission
(County) and approved ... Ms.
White (Moore) explained (be-
fore the P&Z advisory board)
that the surrounding property
would remain agricultural ...
there was some talk about the
property remaining agricul-
tural but the actual vote was
to approve the sketch plat
(with nothing included) about
the property remaining agri-
cultural; and nothing about it
remaining that way perma-
nently. Then it came to (this)
Board; and the Board ap-
proved the sketch plat. Sub-
sequently the property was
sold by Ms. White (Moore) -
the 29 acres involved here to-

'day. There is nothing in that
deed that contained any type
.of restrictive covenants or pro-
?hibitions against the use of
'that property. What we are left
with on the public record is a
plat that shows the property
(29 acres) just as unplatted
property. We have a deed from
Ms. White (Moore) relative to
this property that doesn't con-
tain any restrictions. We have
County Commission minutes
that only show approval of the
sketch plat for the ten acres -
not dealing with anything else
- and we have P&Z minutes
that say that during the
course of the presentation
there was an explanation that
the 29 acres ... would remain
agriculture but nothing about
whether that would be perma-
nent and nothing about
whether the approval was
conditioned on that 29 acres
remaining permanent (agri-
cultural), or staying agricul-
tural. So as a result of my re-
search into this I don't think
that there is anything on the
public record that this item
should be used ... as a basis
to deny what is being pro-
posed by the present owner of
the property. If there is some
other basis to do it which I
don't know about maybe
Alan (Pierce) can speak to
that; the County ought to be
consistent in how it handles
the zoning of that property in
that area. To use this issue
when the public record does
not support it, I think the
County would be on very, very
thin ground; very, very, very
thin ground."
Freida Moore then came for-
ward. "Well let me just say
that I don't think that Mr.
Yonclas has done his home-
work properly. I think that he
is a good attorney but I think
that this time he has not thor-
oughly done his homework.
"Franklin County Board of
County Commissioners regu-
lar meeting on November the
7, 1995 ... Do you have that
Mr. Yonclas?"
"I got them all," Mr. Yonclas
replied.
"Okay, let's address page
number 8. 'Mr. Pierce stated
that this property was submit-
ted to the DCA for approval ...
He explained DCA suggested
rezoning the acreage the
Whites are going to develop to
R-1 unit per acre and leaving
the remaining acreage under
the agricultural zoning.'
That's a pretty strong state-
ment. You miss that one?" Ms.
White (Moore) said directing
her question to Mr. Yonclas.
"Would you like me to respond
now?" Mr. Yonclas asked, di-.
rec ling his request, ,t h, tte,
Board.
"Let me go to ..." interrupted
Ms. Moore. "DCA wrote Tom
Beck who most of you know
was at the DCA for many
years worked with Mr. Pierce
and myself for months and
months and months concern-
ing this property. They told us
that this property was an en-
vironmentally sensitive piece
of property and that this was
the way they recommended
that it be developed. That we
only do ten one acre lots and
that the rest of it remains in
Agricultural zoning. That is
how Mr. Pierce presented it to
the Board; I agreed to that -
to give up development on the
rest of it (29 acres) because
DCA said that it didn't need
to be developed. It was envi-
ronmentally sensitive, That
was ten years ago. Are we say-
ing that that piece of property
is now any less environmen-
tally sensitive than it was ten
years ago? Heck no! We are
more intelligent about the en-
vironment now than we were
ten years ago. If it was envi-
ronmentally sensitive and
DCA said not to develop it ten


years ago they darn sure
wouldn't tell you to go back
in there and develop it today.
Mr. Cressup bought that piece
of property; it was zoned agri-
cultural when he bought it; it
was zoned agricultural when
I bought it; it has been zoned
agricultural ever since there
was any zoning in this
County. It is still zoned agri-
cultural. You do not have to
approve changing that zoning
just because somebody comes
up here and asks for it. If you
do ... (I have several proper-
ties) that I would like to have
re-zoned. This was not a suit-
able piece then DCA said so;
Mr. Pierce agreed with them;
Mr. Pierce recommended that
we go along and do it the way
that DCA said; and that is
what we did. So I know Mr.
Putnal's question is going to
be ... what is going to happen
as far as law suits? Well, I'm
going to tell you, the last thing
I ever want to do is sue this
County ... ever. It has been
good to me and I have tried to
be good to it. But I was de-
nied those development rights
ten years ago on that piece of
property. And I can tell you
right now I met with my at-
torney and he is a pretty
smart guy and he tells me ...
absolutely. If you let this man
develop it today as much as I
hate to, I will have to sue this
County ... We're not talking
about peanuts folks. This is
not a threat ... but right is
right and wrong is wrong. If I
couldn't do it ten years ago -
then it shouldn't be done to-
day."
"Freida?" asked Mr. Mosconis.
"Are you saying that ten years
ago you wanted to develop the
whole forty acres all along?"
"Actually what we tried to do
to begin with was to do it in
ten acre lots. There is eighty
acres of it up there that I
owned. We wanted to do it in
ten acre lots or in five acre lots
- DCA said no. that is not the
best way to do it ... And I said
O.K. I did what I was asked to
do. You guys do whatever you
feel that you have to do. You
don't have to re-zone some
property just because some-
body has asked if you do I'll
be back next month (with a
list). If it is not right; it is not
right. You are not taking any
right away from Mr. Cressup
by leaving it agricultural. It
was agricultural when he
bought it; it is agricultural
now and he has used it for the
purpose which he bought it
for and that was agricultural."
"Frieda. let me ask you one
question," asked Mr. Crofton.
"Why didn't you put- a deed
re-tlrilctn ion c h n v u L sold t '"'
"Because Idi,dn't think. that I
had to," Ms Moore responded
heatedly.
"The County can't put a deed
restriction that is the obli-
gation of the seller," affirmed
Mr. Crofton.
"I know that. I have a law de-
gree and I understand it.
When they recorded that
"they" should have put ..."
"They? ... They who?" inter-
jected Mr. Crofton.
"Whoever the hell. handles
that for the County the

takes care of getting things
recorded properly. It should
have been recorded that it
should for evermore have
been left in Agriculture. But
it was not recorded that way.
I was told that this property
had to be left as agricultural

"Well, maybe that was a re-
striction on you ... person-
ally," offered Mr. Crofton.
'That I couldn't do it because
it was environmentally sensi-
tive but somebody else can?
My God! Man that is discrimi-
nation ... good grief: He can
do it because he is a man and
I can't because I'm a woman
or because my name is White
and his name is Cressup.
Come on? That doesn't make
any sense."
"Freida," offered Mr.
Mosconis. "We do not go out
around the County ... resell-
ing people's property. The only
time we re-zone property is
when somebody who owns the
property comes through the
proper channels and says I
want to re-zone my property."
A ruckus ensued and Mr.
Yonclas was asked to give le-
gal clarification.
"The issue that I have been
called upon to look at," offered
Mr. Yonclas, "was whether the
documentation surrounding
this is enough to restrict the
re-zoning of this property. In
my opinion it is not. What
should have happened was
that when this property was
platted and that doesn't fall
onto the County the normal
procedure is that the devel-
oper goes to the surveyor and
he/she prepares it or the en-
gineer he plats the entirety
of the property which would
have been the whole forty
acres shows the ten platted
lots; shows the other property
as conservation or agriculture
or whatever it is that you are
going to show it ... and I don't
believe that is the County's
responsibility. The County
doesn't get into that (histori-
cally). Commission (minutes)
records do not rise to the level
of public records that put ev-
eryone on notice. The lan-
guage (in the minutes) was
ambiguous."
The possibility of asking the
DCA once again on this par-
ticular issue was brought for-
ward. It was explained to the
Board that the DCA was
brought in back then because
this decision involved a large
block of land. The DCA does
not get involved in decisions
on smaller blocks and there
have been personnel changes
since that-time.
Mr,; Mosoonis then -pointed
out that this was more or less
regular and usual business
for the Board and that the
Board had been elected to.
make these type decisions and
not the DCA. Then Mr.
Cressup stepped forward to
speak on behalf of his request.
Mr. Cressup brought up the
history of the land develop-
ment in that area and pointed
out that the original block that
the DCA was concerned with
involved 350 acres.

"Ms. White was originally con-
cerned with an 80 acre devel-
opment (part of the original
350)." Mr. Cressup explained
that other neighboring prop-
erties in that area have all
been rezoned to the same
standards that he is request-
ing. "I am just asking for the
same thing that the other
property owners from Mill Rd.
.. from River Rd. up to the
burnt bridge have done for the
last ten years."
The discussion and debate
continued for some time with
other concerned property
owners coming forward to
voice attitudes about road ac-
cess, right-of-way, taxes and
what not. The DCA was
brought to .the foreground
once again and Mr. Yonclas
was asked to repeat his rec-
ommendations. Finally the
Board decided to bring the
question to a vote.
Mr. Lockley made the motion
that Mr. Cressup's request be
approved. Mr. Mosconis sec-
onded the motion. Mr. Putnal
asked Mr. Yonclas to state his
recommendation one last
time. Mr. Yonclas basically
told the Board that there was
nothing in any of the public
paper work or legal documen-
tation to bind the Board to
anything that had gone on in
the past. He recommended.
that this property should be
judged by the Board, consis-
tent with all past zoning deci-
sions in that area. He advised
the Board that if they were to
deny Mr. Cressup's request it
should be done on grounds
other than those suggested by
the protesters otherwise Mr.
Cressup would have legal
grounds for a complaint. Mr.
Putnal then agreed to go along
with the decision of the ma-
jority of the Board primarily
because of the attorney's rec-
ommendation. Ms. Sanders
was the only vote opposed.

EDITORIAL & COMMENTARY


George Island and various
other citizens who feel that
this is a problem between the
turtles and God, but the
"people" have declared other-
wise and rules and laws have
been established to assist the
turtles on the grounds that
the turtles were here first and
if it weren't for the encroach-
ment of mankind would be
doingjust fine. This argument
though it didn't work for the
American Indian and multiple
others of God's creations has
been accepted on behalf of the
turtles but nevertheless can
become very philosophical
and political at times. Thank-
fully, many humans have
taken it upon themselves to
speak on behalf of the tiny,
politically powerless turtles.
Hence we have this turtle
watcher's report before the
County Commission.
'To date we have marked 71
sea turtle nests for protec-
tion," explained Mr. Drye. "Six
of those were washed away by
tropical storm Alberto and five
have hatched already. But out
of the five that have hatched
three have disoriented. So we
have 60 sea turtle nests left
on the beach. Now I would like
to talk about the disorienta-
tions.
'The night of the thirteenth I
was called by a visitor who
noticed what he thought was
disoriented sea turtles -
hatchlings on the beach. So
I called one of my volunteers
and she and I went down and
by the time that we got there
which was about five or six
minutes after the phone call -
the disorientation was pretty
much over. (We) searched
around for hatchlings to res-
cue; most of the hatchlings
had already crawled to the
water after being directed to-
wards two house lights and a
Progress Energy streetlight
located on West Gorrie Drive.
This is an area where we com-
monly have disorientations at.
We have had disorientations
since 1998 listed to or caused
by the Progress Energy
streetlight which is mounted
on a light pole on the County
right-of-way to the house
called BeachWalker and the
house called Windsong. We
noticed that the tracts came
to these two different houses
and a number of turtles also
went towards the Progress
Energy streetlight. One live
hatchling was found in front
of BeachWalker;, another live
hatchling was found under-
neath the Progress Energy
streetlight: the other
hatchlings had eventually
crawled towards the water.
Out of the 144 hatchlings re-
leased from that nest probably
forty of them were not found
to have crawled to the water.
We arrive at that total by fol-
lowing as many sea turtle
hatchling tracks as we can.
But many of them crawl to-
wards the street and towards
that streetlight and under-
neath the houses and were
lost in the grasses to either
crabs or ants or simply lost
in the vegetation. I have docu-
mented and I have given Alan
a copy of the disorientation to
report for that event.

'The next disorientation hap-
pened on the 23rd of last
month to a house called the
Plantation 1 & 2 as well as a
house called Seaside and
across the street by A Place
in the Sun. There were tracks
that went directly towards
Plantation 1 & 2 where they
were attracted to a series of
step-lights between the two
homes. Some of the
hatchlings were picked up by
the visitors who were staying
at that home and they carried
them to the water. But a num-
ber of hatchings continued to
the west (attracted to other
homes with various types' of
lights). One hatchling was
found dead in the road after
being run over and another.
was found alive ...
'The third nest was a partial
disorientation and it may be
the result of a misorientation
which are when hatchlings
are unable to orient them-
selves for one reason or an-
other possibly biological. But
(this may not have been due
to improper lighting). That
occurred in the Plantation to
a home that is unoccupied but
has step-lights on. The step-
lights go out at sunrise so the
hatchlings may have turned
around and gone towards the
water after being directed to-
wards that home.
"If you have any questions I
will,try and answer them right
now? (There were no ques-
tions) I will continue to come
before you as often as I need
to discuss disorientations
with you and make it apart
of public knowledge that we
still have some very serious
light problems on St. George
Island that are decimating the
endangered species. Every
year we have at least twenty
percent of our hatchlings
nests disoriented because of
house lights ... This is the way
the numbers have been look-
ing for the past few years. But
the home owners even after
they are notified ignore the
letters- and hatchlings are
continuing to die as a result
of the problem lighting that we
have on St. George Island."
Attorney Shuler's
Report
The vessel Lollypop-It was
requested by Mr. Crofton that
this abandoned vessel be re-
moved-nothing as of yet has
happened towards that end.
Safety and other related is-
sues concerning the' apart-.
ment above the St. George is-
land water treatment plant


have not been resolved.
Meth labs-Mr. Shuler re-
ported no favorable responses
yet with methods of other
communities in dealing with
this potential drug problem.
The concern was brought for-
ward by commissioner Mos-
conis with regards to products
sold over the counter at regu-
lar local businesses which
could be used and adapted to
produce illegal drug materials.
A noise ordinance will be pre-
sented for the Board to review
and comment on for the next
scheduled meeting.
A request from GE with re-
gards to a billing procedure
(the use of the County's Pro-
vider Number) was brought
before the Board by Attorney
Shuler and approved.
Mr. Shuler informed the
Board and Mr. Putnal in par-
ticular that the road transfer
from Lighthouse Point to the
County was proceeding as re-
quested and approved by the
Board at the last meeting.
There was nothing reported
on the hunting issue on St.
George Island but there
should be some information
,by the next County Commis-
sion meeting.

Takes Trip

To North

Carolina

By Richard Williams
Larry and Patricia Hale took
the Scouts to North Carolina.
The trip consisted of a little
work and a lot of fun to start
with. We built a barbed wire
fence and then the fun be-
gan-we took a short hike for
6 miles. We went to Chimney
Rock and 6 miles back to the
cabin. We also went to climb
Max which is an indoor climb-
ing gym. We learned climbing
techniques and how to belay
which is a way to keep the
slack out orthe ropes to keep
the climber safe. Next we went
to Looking Glass which is a
commonly climbed rock. We
had a choice of three climbs;
they were rated from easiest
to hardest.


From the Southeastern Fisheries Association

Due Process Hearings To

Be Held Throughout The

State By FWC

The Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission has set 8 workshops
in order to hear from the public regarding their rules and pro-
cedures regarding Due Process. Many people in the fishing
industry have concerns about the fairness and legality of the
due process system used by the Commission. When the FWC
was created by amending the Florida Constitution, the actual
language in the Constitution reads: 'The Commission shall
establish procedures to ensure adequate due process in the
exercise of its regulatory and executive functions. The legisla-
ture may enact laws in aid of the Commission, not inconsis-
tent with this section, except that there shall be no special law
or general law of local application pertaining to hunting and
fishing."
Does the Commission in keeping with federal law and prece-
dents use a completely valid Due Process system? That is the
basic question. Due Process doesn't prevent a government
entity from depriving a citizen of life, liberty and pursuit of
happiness but Due Process does give the citizen who is to be
deprived certain inalienable rights under federal and state
constitutions. Proper notification of proposed actions and a
hearing at a meaningful time and meaningful location are re-
quired. SFA has always felt that 3 minutes before the Com-
mission to express your concerns before a rule impacting on
the way you live is not adequate due process.
At the same time SFA knows a hearing can't go on for months
in order to let everyone talk as long as they can. Somewhere in
between these two poles lies the answer and we lean toward
stakeholder workshops from the beginning of the idea of a
rule to the final action. Maybe the public hearings will bring
out some suggestions so your attendance is encouraged. The
hearings are in Tallahassee on August 8th, Panama City on
August 22nd, Jacksonville on August 23rd, Orlando on August
24 Tampa on August 28th, Ft. Myers on August 29t', Dania
Beach on August 30th and Key Largo on August 3181. Go to the
FWC website for times and locations http://myfwc.com/
publicnotices/.


We also went to a place called
"Bust Your Butt Falls" which
is place to swim slide down


the falls and jump off of a cliff
into the water. On August 4,
we cleaned up camp packed
up and headed home.

EDITORIAL & COMMENTARY


Butler Honored by Fellow

Rotarians

By Sue Cronkite
"Concern for others is our touchstone," Gene Sherron told
Apalachicola Rotary Club members recently. Sherron is gov-
ernor for District 6940, which includes Apalachicola and 48
other clubs in the North Florida Panhandle area from Pensacola
to Tallahassee, to Perry.
SWhile visiting the Apalachicola club Sherron bestowed Paul
SHarris Fellowship honors upon Cliff Butler, club secretary.
Butler received the three emblems of the prestigious fellow-
ship, a certificate, a lapel pin and medallion. "The certificate
states that you have named a Paul Harris Fellow in apprecia-
tion of tangible and significant assistance given for the fur-
therance of better understanding and friendly relations be-
tween peoples of the world." Sharron told Butler.
The fellowship is named for Paul Harris, who founded Rotary.
with three business associates in Chicago in 1905. The fellow-
ship was established in 1957 to express appreciation for do-
nations of at least $100 each year for ten years to the humani-
tarian and educational programs of The R6tary Foundation.
"Rotary Foundation projects help to save and invigorate the
lives of people around the world and enhance international
'friendship and understanding," Sharron told Apalachicola
Rotarians. Ongoing projects include education, food, potable
water, health care, immunizations and shelter for millions of
persons, funded, implemented and managed by Rotarians and
Rotary clubs around the globe.
"Rotarians also designate a Paul Harris Fellow to recognize a
person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the
objectives and mission of The Rotary Foundation to build world
understanding and peace," said Sharron.
A major project is to eradicate polio from the world. "A holdout
in our Polio eradication efforts is an area in Africa," said
Sharron, "And we are working with Rotarians to convince lead-
ers there that our aim is to wipe out polio, not harm their
children. Fighting ignorance can sometimes be a difficult task.",
The PolioPlus program strives to ensure that children are im-
munized against the crippling disease and that surveillance is
strong, despite the poor infrastructure, extreme poverty, and
civil strife of many countries. Since the program's inception in
1985, more than 2 billion children have received oral polio
vaccine.
Other significant programs include grants for university teach-
ers to teach in developing nations, grants for World Peace schol-
ars who study peace and conflict resolution, Ambassadorial
scholarships in which scholars study in a county other than
their own where they serve as unofficial ambassadors of good-
will, and group study exchanges.
"We thank you for demonstrating in your life and vocation a
commitment to helping persons in need here and around the
world," said Sharron. Butler, CEO of Gulf State Bank, has
been a member of the Apalachicola club 26 years. He cur-
rently serves as secretary.
Other officers of the Apalachicola Club include Sue Cronkite,
president, Rev. John Sink, vice president, and Monica Lemieux,
treasurer. Jim Miller is assistant district governor for district
6940. The Apalachicola club meets at noon on Tuesday of each
week at the Red Top Cafe on Highway 98.
Projects of Apalachicola Rotary include scholarships for high
school graduates to use for college and other programs, in-
cluding plans for a public bathroom for tourists in downtown
Apalachicola, and sponsorship of 10th graders to Rotary Youth
Leadership training camp. ,
Sharron was born in Dania and served before his retirement
as the first Chief Information Officer for Florida State Univer-
sity and was a professor at the School of Information Studies.
He joined Tallahassee Northside Rotary in 1995 and has served
as president, secretary, and treasurer of the club. He recently
(returned from the Rotary World Conference in Helsinki. His
first career was in the Army where he had tours in Korea,
Vietnam, in the Pentagon'and the National Defense Univer-
,sity, and retired as a colonel after 23 years, during which he
earned 33 U.S. and foreign decorations and awards, with travel
to 30 countries and all 50 states.
iThe chief object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal
of service as a basis of worthy enterprise, to foster high ethical
standards in business and professions, the recognition ofwor-
-thiness of all useful occupations, and the application of the
ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and
community life.
Rotary also fosters the advancement of international under-
standing, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of
business and professional persons united in the ideal of ser-
vice. The 4-way test of the things Rotarians think, say, or do is
contained in the questions: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all con-
cerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? And will
it be beneficial to all concerned?


Sue Cronkite Rotary
President with Gene
Sharron.



Boyd. Holds

District

Healthcare

Council

Meeting
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) hosted a meet-
ing .with the District
Healthcare Council to discuss
local healthcare issues and
concerns, including federal
appropriations requests and
rural hospitals in North
Florida. The District
Healthcare Council is com-
rised of 24 representatives
from 16 counties across North
Florida.
"Access to quality, affordable
healthcare is a critical part of
American life," said Congress-
man Boyd. "Although much
more needs to be done in
Washington, there is more
that we can do at home as
well. It is my hope that the
District Healthcare Council
will start thinking regionally,
so the counties can come to-
gether and pool their re-
sources to improve the over-
all quality of healthcare in
North Florida."
At this week's meeting, Con-
gressman Boyd had two main
objectives for the District
Healthcare Council. The first
objective was for the council
to focus on regionalized prob-
lem solving. Up to this point,
the Congressman had asked
the counties to focus on their
individual concerns. However,
at this meeting, Congressman
Boyd encouraged members of
the District Healthcare Coun-
cil to consider the healthcare
concerns of surrounding
counties as well. The second
objective was to push the
counties to work more closely
with the business community
and state and local agencies
and make them active partici-

Florida.


Congressman Boyd formed
the District Healthcare Coun-
cil in 2005 to tackle
healthcare issues locally.
Each county was given the
task of choosing a represen-
tative to serve on the District
Healthcare Council. Repre-
senting Franklin County is
County Commissioner Noah
Lockley.
"The District Healthcare
Council assembles people
from all different professions
and points of view so that the
discussions and solutions will
be comprehensive and repre-
sentative of our unique dis-
trict," Boyd stated. "By bring-
ing the district together, we
can better serve the
healthcare needs of North Flo-
ridians."

Camp

Gordon

Johnston

News
First of all, let us remember
that Monday the 14th is the
sixty-first anniversary of the
surrender of Imperial Japan
to General MacArthur and
Admiral Nimitz's forces in To-
kyo Bay, effectively ending the
Second World War. However,
there are still Japanese sol-
diers, although very, very old,
holding out in back water ar-
eas of the Pacific.
Recently the Camp Gordon
Johnston Museum received a
series of letters written by a
Mr. Harold Prejean to his wife,
Peggy, recounting his time at
Camp Gordon Johnston. In
these letters, submitted by his
daughter, Mrs. Lesylee
Gautreanx a retired school
teacher from Orange, Texas,
a graphic description of
Carrabelle, Apalachicola and
the camp is given by her fa-
ther who trained here as a
soldier in one of the many
Harborcraft units. These let-
ters have been transcribed by
the Museum curator, Mrs.
Minichiello for the research
library. Some of these letters
will be published in the forth-
coming issue of the Amphib-
ian due out in December. Also
received by the Museum is a
large and extensively detailed
map of camp Gordon
Johnston which details many
heretofore unknown locations
of the various training sites
and warehouse locations
which were positioned
through Franklin County. The
map was donated by Mr. C.C.
Smith, Marietta, Georgia.
Of local interest, Mr. Willie
Norred of St; George Island
donated a WWII munitions
box with the 28th division in-
signia on its side. A member
of the 28th lived with the fam-
ily during the war and the box
was left behind.
This summer has seen a
marked increase in visitors to
the Museum located on Ma-
rine Street in Carrabelle. In-
creased advertising from the
"Forgotten Coast" visitor's
map as well as placing bro-
chures in the Visit Florida
Welcome stations and'radio
spots on both 15..5 and Oys-
ter Radib have helped.

A LOCALLY 0 WNED NEWSPAPER


18 August 2006 Page 5


EAR from Page 1

Changes in Conditions since the previous
Evaluation and Appraisal Report
The last Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR)-based amend-
ments were adopted on April 5, 2005. In the fourteen months
since that plan's adoption, there have been no significant
changes in the provision of affordable units. Many of the same
trends that were examined in the previous EAR-based amend-
ments are still ongoing today. However, some efforts have been
made toward providing more affordable housing units.
The previous plan examined the population's demographic and
housing characteristics with data from the 2000 Census. Since
no new census has been performed since the plan's adoption
in 2005, the estimate for the number of affordable housing
units presented in the data and analysis of the last plan up-
date was used. According to the last Census, the median in-
come for Franklin County was $26,756. Of the 4,096 occupied
households in Franklin County in 2000, 2,253 (55%) were low
income, and 1,474 (36%) were very-low income. In the unin-
corporated part Of the County, there were 2,548 households,
of which 1312..(51%) were low income, and 868 (34%) were
very-low income households. These numbers represent a de-
crease in the overall percentages from the 1980 Census, al-
though the total number of affordable units needed increased.
This indicates that the numbers of moderate, middle and high-
income households are increasing at a faster rate than the low
and very-low income households. With the type of develop-
ment that is occurring. In the number of higher income house-
holds should increase.
In order to provide an accurate estimation of the number and
type of affordable units needed, the number of cost-burdened
units must be examined. Cost-burdened households are de-
fined as those who spend greater than 30 percent of their in-
come on rent or mortgage payments. According to the previ-
ous EAR-based amendments, 27% of the households within
the County were cost-burdened. Of those, 88% earned less
than $20,000 per year.
According to data and analysis, 2,245 households in Franklin
County needed housing assistance. These are households
whose income is at or below 80% of the area's median income.
In Franklin County, the median income levels for the state,
rather than the County, are used to determine the income
limits for housing assistance: Using the higher state median
income to establish income limits for affordable housing has
the effect of raising the minimum income, thus making hous-
ing assistance programs available to a larger number of people.
Recommendations
OBJECTIVE AND POLICIES
* Adopt an objective and policies that establish criteria for
land that is acceptable for affordable housing.
* Establish a Community Land Trust to accept donations and.
to provide land for affordable housing.
* Investigate additional funding sources to increase the num-
ber of substandard and dilapidated housing units refurbished
each year.
* Include within the housing Element objectives and polices
which allow the County to review its surplus properties and
possibly donate land for affordable housing projects.
* Implement those polices within the Housing Element which
proactively address affordable housing outlining density bo-
nuses, reduced fees, and streamlined permitting, to provide
incentives for the development of affordable housing.
* Explore options for providing affordable housing suggested
by the Workforce Housing Coalition, such as:
* Inclusionary Zoning
Streamlined permitting process
Financial assisitairce for infill development
Pre-designed and pre-permitted plans available foi infill de-
velopment


* Increase/improve water andsewer infrastructure to encour-
age infill development

Major Issue 2:
Integration of the Local Mitigation Strategy into
the Comprehensive PlanJ'
The Local Mitigation Strategy is a product of the Robert T.
Stafford Disaster Relief and emergency Assistance Act. Sec-
tion 322 of this act provides for new and revitalized approaches
to mitigation planning, including funding for the development
of state and local mitigation plans. As part of the update to
meet the new requirements of Section 322, the Department of
Community Planning at Florida's Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) suggests using the Evaluation and Appraisal
Report (EAR) process to coordinate the integration of the Lo-
cal Mitigation Strategy into the Comprehensive Plan. The in-
tent is to use the comprehensive planning process and strat-
egy to reduce future damage within the Commuhity and to
avoid future development in.hazardous areas. Integration of
the Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) into the Comprehensive
Plan will-bring consideration, of hazards into everyday deci-
sions regarding land development and regulation;',
Having an adequate plan in place to deal with the effects of a
natural disaster is important considering the increasing in-
tensity of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. In Franklin County,
almost all of the development occurs along the coast. The ge-
ography of the County's development makes preparing for di-
saster and preventing large scale impacts a crucial task.
Franklin County Local Mitigation Strategy, 2004
Since 1985 Franklin County has experienced the effects of ten
hurricanes, four tropical storms three floods, several fires (one
wildfire and several arson-related urban fires), and one drought.
The Local Mitigation Strategy ranks the hazards that threaten
the County and are shown in Table 2.1, below. These hazards
were identified and ranked by the Franklin County Mitigation
Task Force using the Mitigation 20/20 software and relying
on the informed judgment of experienced local officials. The
jurisdi tions participating in the task force included local gov-
ernments (the County and the cities of Apalachicola and
Carrabelle), local business associations, environmental groups,
housing groups, and the Red Cross. The task force considered
the likelihood that a hazard will impact an area as well as the
consequences of that impact to public health and safety, prop-
erty, the economy, and the environment.
Recommendations
MAPS

OBJECTIVES
Adopt an objective or policy that directs the County to in-
clude potential hazards in suitability assessments for land
development decisions, including impacts to evacuation routes
and times.
Include an Objective in the Capital Improvements Element
that directs the County to consider LMS projects when the
schedule of Capital Improvements is adopted each year.
Formulate and adopt a PDRP, as per Objective 15 of the
Coastal and Conservation Element, and include within the
PDRP a strategy for rebuilding historical structures (if any),
purchasing repetitively damaged structures, and explore ad-
ditional funding sources for rehabilitating more substandard
and dilapidated housing units per year.
Adopt a concurrency management system that includes
evacuation times and shelter spaces.
Formulate and adopt an intergovernmental coordination sys-
tem that concerns coastal development and impacts to evacu-
ation routes.

Major Issue 3:
Water Access
The beaches, bays, and estuaries of Florida's Panhandle at-
tract visitors and new residents alike to Franklin County. In
fact, a recent development boom has occurred within Franklin
County that can be attributed in part to the numerous com-'
mercial and recreational fishing and boating opportunities the '
County offers, as well as its abundance of waterfront prop-
erty.
Similar to other counties located on the Gulf Coast (such as,
Bay County and Walton County), the rapid development and'
redevelopment of Franklin County's waterfront property has .
raised concern over the ability of future residents and visitors\
to access Franklin Couhty's waterfront areas. Franklin,
County's economy is largely supported by commercial and rec-,
reational water-dependent and water-related activities (i.e.,,
shrimping, oystering, fishing, and boating). Therefore, as more
County land uses are converted to uses that do not provide,
public access to the water, and as more, residents and visitors;
utilize the County's existing public waterfront access facili-1
ties, it is important to make certain that the Comprehensive.
Plan includes adequate provisions to ensure adequate and.:
appropriately-sited public access to one of its most valuable,
resources: the waterfront.
Past and Current Status
When the EAR-based amendments to the Franklin County,
Comprehensive: Plan was adopted'in 2005, the supporting
technical data and analysis report provided a general analysis'
of the County's recreational facilities, including public water.
access: The report stated that the County, in concert with
Carrabelle, Apalachicola, and private businesses, manage sev-
eral park, beach, and boating facilities. According to the re-i
port, there were a total of 31 sites for boat launching and 23,
beach access points. However, this information included pri-
vate facilities, as well as facilities located within the incorpo-'
rated areas of the County. The 2005 Franklin County Com-'
prehensive Plan also provided a more specific analysis of the
County's existing water-related public facilities. According to
Exhibit 7-1, "Adopted Recreation Levels of Service and Exist-
ing Facilities", the County and its municipalities offered a to-
tal, of 18 freshwater boat ramps, 25 saltwater .boat ramps,;
and 2,048 linear feet of saltwater piers. Exhibit 7-2, "Updated
Levels of Service for Recreation and Projected Needs", indi-
cated that the County and its municipalities have a surplus.
of 64 miles of fresh and saltwater beaches and a deficit of 35
feet for fresh and saltwater fishing. However, these analyses.
were based on information gathered from the 1991 Franklin
County Comprehensive Plan. Therefore, the accuracy of these
numbers in relation to the present is questionable.
To supplement the data and analysis supporting the adopted
2005 Franklin County Comprehensive Plan, the Florida Divi-
sion of Recreation and Parks' Outdoor Recreation Planning
(ORP) Inventory was used. This is a database that inventories
all of the State's recreation resources and facilities. The ORP
Inventory provides a central repository for data on all outdoor
recreation resource lands thi-oughout the state managed by a
wide range of public and private recreation providers. It cov-
ers federal, state, county and municipal parks and commer-

cial properties as well as units managed or owned by nonprofits,
clubs and special districts. By using the ORP Inventory, more
up-to-date data (years 2002 through 2006) regarding some of
the water-dependent recreational resources available in
Franklin County.

Recommendations
The County should establish incentives to encourage private
property owners to develop or retain their properties in a use
that provides public or commercial access to water.
The County should include a policy to provide adequate park.
ing for waterfront recreation areas and designated public wa-
terfront access sites through improvement or construction of
parking areas, as feasible.
The County should include a policy to actively pursue state
or federal grant funds to improve selected street-ends for use
as dedicated public waterfront access points and will clearly
mark, such points as waterfront access. .
The County should ensure that existing.dedicated access for
the public to the County's rivers, bays, beaches, and estuaries
is maintained by new development.
The County should require new waterfront development to
show on their site plans existing waterfront access ways and
the proposed development shall continue that access way, re-
locate it on the site with approval of the County, or donate an
alternative site to the County.
The County should include a policy that ensures all public
access facilities are accessible to a state, county, or city road
and include parking facilities, as feasible.
The County should accept donations of shoreline lands suit-
able for use as public access facilities.

Andy Dyal (Director of Operations), Diane Dyal (Advertising
Designer and Computer Specialist) and Tom Hoffer (Chronicle
Publisher); flew to San Antonio last weekend (5-7 August) to
attend a trade show featuring concession equipment spon-
sored by the National Association of Concessionaires. The show
was held in the massively large Henry Gonzalez Convention
Center in downtown San Antonio. Hoffer recalled, "This build-
ing is so large, it is extremely tiring to merely walk into the
convention center to talk with agents seen at the show." The
trade show occupied the space taken up by at least three foot-
ball fields.
There were hundreds of exhibitors represented at the trade
show. These included dozens of distributors of theatre seats,
portable stages, draperies, food and beverage suppliers, light-
ing equipment, booking agencies, food preparation and warm-
ing equipment, and of course, suppliers of popcorn and as-
sorted candies.

Thursday, August 10th, Ed Brown and Associates laid out the
9,500 square foot concrete slab that will be poured by the end
of summer 2006. A number of additional decisions concern-
ing location of certain plumbing configurations for the con-
cession area have to be made. Vulcan Steel (Adel, Georgia) is
scheduled to deliver and erect the four module structure in
November 2006.

57 $334,973 $295,000 S245.28 between excess supply and limited demand plague the higher
priced coastal markets. While this is now a "buyer's market",
0 most buyers seem to have a "wait and see" attitude. At some

Besides rising interest rates, significant property insurance
hikes compounded the slowing in Florida markets. In direct
correlation to waterfront proximity, some insurance rates have
more than doubled (i.e. $8,000 to $16,000). It is speculated
that a rash of June auctions was spurned by insurance policy
renewals.


Finally, the natural allure of the water continues to bring visi-
tors to our region and the summer tourist season is stronger
than ever. Combined with the retiring baby boomers, the un-
derlying fundamentals will continue growth pressures.
Call Mr. Bell at 850-899-0282 for additional information.

* The County should coordinate with the State of Florida on
ensuring public access to public lands.
* Before, the State of Florida acquires private property in
Franklin County, the County should coordinate with the prop-
erty, owner to ensure future public access before transfer of
said property has taken place.
* The County should consider dedicating a portion of Tourist
Development Funds towards the acquisition of boat ramps in
Franklin County. This revenue could be bonded, allowing the
County could then acquire boat ramps now, rather than later.
* The County should evaluate boating activity within the un-
incorporated areas to characterize the preferences, activities,-
and use-patterns of area boater populations. The resulting
information shall then be developed into a boating facilities
siting plan and incorporated by reference into the Compre-
hensive Plan.

(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. O'I-i'i!rlly piiblished 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.
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.

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

(124) The Expanding Vista
by Mary Ann Watson. Hard-

Press, 273 pp. This is the
story of American television
in the Kennedy years begin-
ning with the ground-
breaking first "TV debates,"
and ending with the
muffled drums and a united
population still trying to
comprehend the unthink-
able death of its President,
united electronically in na-
tional mourning. Watson
has written an engaging
and insightful look at
American television in the
Kennedy years and the lives
of many Americans, and
how the medium emerged.
Here is also a documented
yet memorable telling of the
story fading rapidly from
the American mind. Origi-
nally sold nationally for

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


(317) Green Empire, The St. Joe Company and the
Remaking of Florida's Panhandle. By Kathryn Ziewitz
and June Wiaz.
Based on hundreds of sources-including company ex-
ecutives, board members, and investors as well as those
outside the company-this factual and objective history
describes the St. Joe Company from the days of its
founders to the workings and dealings of its present-day
heirs. For all readers concerned with land use and growth
management, particularly those with an interest in
Florida's fragile wildlife and natural resources, Green
Empire will generate important debate about an often-
overlooked part of the state and will invite public scru-
tiny of its largest landowner.
