Chronicle Moves On


The Franklin Chronicle
Will Continue!
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
Tom Hoffer-founder, owner,
reporter, "decider-in-chief" and
publisher-has provided for the
continuance of the Franklin
Chronicle for many years into the
future. Actually Tom stated in his
Trust Documentation that he
hoped that the paper would con-
tinue for another 360 years. Three
hundred and sixty years does
seem somewhat optimistic but
anyone who knew Tom was well
aware of his personal determina-
tion.
Mr. Hoffer selected a Board of
Trustees to handle the affairs of
his estate and to vote on the con-
cerns which will inevitably arise.
The group consists of some of
Tom's old friends and associ-
ates-all Wise Men indeed. All
of Tom's dreams are still on the
table and the Trustees are opti-
mistic and positive with regards
to their eventual fulfillment. But a
period of adjustment and stabili-
ty will be necessary; so all of us
here at the Chronicle ask for your
patience and indulgence. We
have all met with the Trustees
and been reassured; confidence is
very high. We intend to do the
best that we can to complete the
"mission" here at the "com-
pound"-as Tom might have
directed.
The day to day operations of the
paper will continue to be man-
aged by Diane and Andy Dyal
and the old staff.

Hopeful Look To The
Future
BY SUE CRONKITE
Very much under the influence of
the spirit of intent if not the phys-
ical presence of Tom Hoffer, the
Chronicle newspaper takes care-
-ful and thoughtful aim toward the
'future.
A lot has happened in Franklin
County since the quietly driven
:and intent college professor of
-film at Florida State University
-decided to establish a bi-weekly
newspaper to cover the happen-
ings along the coast.
He was intensely interested in all
of Franklin County, from St.
George Island to Apalachicola,
to Eastpoint, Carrabelle, Lanark
Village, and Alligator Point. In
his step-by-step planning on a
move of his home, his publishing


business, his vast collection of
films made along the coast, and
just as vast collection of books,
many about the history of film
and the history of Florida, to the
coast, Tom Hoffer was methodi-
cal.
He bought one of the first houses
in the development of the
Plantation gated community on
the western end of St. George
Island. Whatever happened in
the development, from meetings
of the governing board to dis-
course over construction of hous-
es, roads, community tennis
courts, and beach access, he cov-
ered everything that went on.
He was very proud of the First
Responders and the St. George
Island Volunteer Fire
Department and fervently pro-
moted the Chili Cookoff, the Fire
Department's main fund-raising
event. Even while traveling back
and forth between Tallahassee
and the island, he was at every
civic club meeting possible. If he
couldn't be there, he assigned a
reporter to keep up with what
was happening.
He loved the annual Florida
Seafood Festival held in
Apalachicola and the observance '
of the Camp Gordon Johnston
anniversary in Lanark Village
and Carrabelle. The photogra-
pher with vest pockets filled with
film was a familiar sight along the
parade routes and celebration
areas.
Starting his own newspaper gave
his visions an outlet in the written
word. His writings reflected
alarm at how quickly the seafood
industry, from fishing and the
net ban to taking care of oyster
beds and prudent harvesting -
was threatened as tourism devel-
opment grew.
The one constant is change and
there is no way to stop it, but
planning for orderly development
instead of bulldozing over local
fishermen, shrimpers and oyster-
men was, and is, something the
Chronicle newspaper expects to
keep in the forefront of reporting
and to continue to comment
upon.
Mulling over the past may not
sound like a goal for a newspaper
or for those who govern a com-
munity, county, or state, but only
in careful consideration of previ-
ous mistakes can an informed
population and vigilant public
officials hope to ensure a better.
future for those who live in this
area.
So recently it still smarts to think
about, property began a fruit-bas-
ket-turn-over, with choice coastal
land being flipped from small dol-
lars up into the millions. Many
speculators made lots of money,


Johnson Certified By

Florida Supreme Court

Franklin County Clerk completes extensive training
program on duties and functions.
On December 14, 2006 Honorable Marcia M. Johnson was recently
named as one of Florida's certified elected Clerks of the Circuit Court
by the Florida Supreme Court. Johnson, Clerk of Franklin, achieved
certification along with six other Clerks of the Circuit Court who took
office in 2005.
In one of the most rigorous programs for elected officials, Florida's
Clerks of the Circuit Court are required to undergo a minimum 240
hours of training during their first two years in office in order to receive
certification.
"I am honored to receive this Supreme Court certification and proud to
be, among Florida's certified Clerks of Court. Holding this office is
about serving the public and I am committed to serving the people of
Franklin County and enjoy doing so," said Johnson.
Established by the Supreme Court, the certification curriculum focuses
primarily on the constitutional and statutory responsibilities of the
Clerk in eight areas: general orientation/office transition; administra-
tion and office management; court services and operations; records
maintenance and management; financial administration and manage-
ment; office technology and resources; state and county government
organization, structure, and relationships; and personal skills develop-
ment.
"We are always proud to see a class of newly elected Clerks accomplish
this demanding training regimen," stated Ricky Lyons, Lafayette
County Clerk of the Court and President of the Florida Association of
Court Clerks.
To maintain certification, 36 hours per year are required. Of those con-
tinuing hours, at least 22 must be earned in the area of constitutional
and statutory duties and responsibilities of the office. The remaining 14
can be earned in management level programs offered by the state or
national management training institutes.
About the Clerk's Office
The Clerk of the Circuit Court was established as a public trustee by the
Florida Constitution in 1838. The Clerk of the Circuit Court serves as
the Clerk of Courts, the Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners,
Auditor, Recorder and Custodian of all County Funds. Located at 33
Market St., Suite 203, in Apalachicola, the courthouse is open
Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The courthouse annex
in Carrabelle is located at 1647 Highway 98 East and is also open
Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. until noon and from 1 p.m. until 4:30
p.m.


quickly. Maybe it wasn't as bad as
what happened around the turn
of the century when shysters sold
land to unwitting buyers who dis-
covered their lots were not only
not fit to build a home on, but
under water. But it hasn't been
nice.
What we are left with, now that
the boom has fizzled, is property
valued so high that people are
finding it difficult to pay their
taxes. There is no way most of
the houses could be sold at the
amount of tax evaluation, even if
buyers were available. The county
delinquent tax sale in May had
more listings at a higher price
than ever remembered in this
area.
Now many insurance companies,
in a reaction to frightening activi-
ty by hurricanes, is not only pric-
ing insurance so high many peo-
ple can't afford to pay it, but
many of them are leaving Florida
altogether.
Mother Nature hasn't been too
kind to Franklin County in the,
past couple of years. The longest
period of Red Tide recorded
threw a big wallop into fishing as
a livelihood and fishing for sport.
Seeing fish floating in the bay and
piled along the beaches was one
of the saddest experiences of the
long, hot summer. Even after the-
Red Tide left, the record numbers
of fishermen stayed away. They
had either found other fishing
spots or the price of gasoline for
their trucks and boats kept them
closer to their own homes.
Last year, even when hurricanes
with friendly-sounding names
didn't actually hit Franklin
County, some snuck in like
Dennis and took out restaurants
and other seafood houses, and
left a thick coating of mud over
downtown Apalachicola. Katrina
roared in on the Louisiana,
Mississippi, Alabama Gulf coast
and wreaked unimaginable havoc
over a wide area. The area is still
suffering from the devastation.
We didn't get Katrina's wind and
water here, but county businesses
are still feeling the effects of a
slowed economy. The tourists
who had been stopping here to
sleep and eat on their way to
Biloxi and New Orleans have
found someplace else to go, or
choose to stay home because of
the high price of gasoline. Letting
the tourists know, through adver-
tising and publicity, that we were
not devastated might help to.
bring some of them back.
The past hurricane season was
predicted to be the "worst ever."
Weather experts over the country
predicted as many as 12 major
hurricanes. Thankfully, the
experts were wrong. But just as


we breathed a collective sigh of
relief, a tornado rolled in as a
water spout, then swiped across
Apalachicola, destroying homes,
damaging businesses and taking
out large numbers of beautiful,
aged, oak trees.
Many don't like it that the
seafood industry appears to be
changing to a tourist industry.
And the former flood of visitors
to the area has slowed somewhat.
Whether the end result will be
good or bad can be discovered
only over a period of time.
Meanwhile developers who have
built new homes and condomini-
ums have put a great deal of
money into the area. Those who
have bought older, historic homes
and refurbished them have also
spent a lot of money in Franklin
County.
There is a great deal to be thank-
.ful for in the new year 2007. The
Franklin County Commission is
in charge of Weems Hospital
now. Many improvements have
been made and those who use the
hospital make frequent reports of
satisfaction with their treatment,
with the people working there,
and with the overall facility.
A new, consolidated school is
being built east of Eastpoint. For
many years the rivalry between
the Apalachicola and Carrabelle
football teams and schools was so
strong that large numbers of par-
ents showed up at School Board
meetings when consolidation was
discussed. Ten years ago more
were against it than were for join-
ing the communities together for
a more comprehensive school
system; Now there is more sup-
port for a consolidated school.
The future looks bright along the
,:,or--.:nen Coast. A new Franklin
SCounty Library is in the planning
for Eastpoint. Work has been
completed on a new water system
and a new sewer system for
Apalachicola. St. George Island
has a new television station: A
new museum of art opened in
Apalachicola. There are many
improvements of which to be
proud.
The list could go on and on. But
the major component for the
Franklin Chronicle as well as for
all of Franklin County and our
area on the beautiful coast of the
Gulf of Mexico is hope and
expectation. We expect to do
well. We expect our area to do
well. Just as Thomas W Hoffer,
PhD, would if he were still alive.
The staff, advisory group, and
those in charge, fully intend to
preserve and carry forward
Hoffer's spirit of intent in the bi-
weekly publication of the
Chronicle newspaper.
Happy New Year!


Santa joins the Christmas Rockettes for "Santa Baby."

Pam Nobles Studio Presents

The Spirit of Christmas
BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE
Saturday, December 16 was the big evening for The Pam Nobles Dance
Studio. The Apalachicola High School auditorium was full of parents,
grandparents, family and friends as the talented dancers showed off
what they had learned this past year. The program provided a very
enjoyable hour or so of music and dance by artists of all ages. proud rel-
atives took pictures and movies as nervous hoofers showed their talents
and a good time was had by all.
Santa showed up for the show also. He seemed to find that, for this
evening at least, naughty was out and nice was in. The dancers crowd-
ed around Santa at the end of the program so he would be sure to know
their Christmas wishes. Even a baby less than a month old lay in
Santa's arms to tell its Christmas dreams.
There were sixteen dance numbers in the show with special perform-
ances by Alice Gibbs and Jane Gray. Even Santa got in one number
when he appeared on stage with the Rockettes dancing "Santa Baby".
It's good to see all the interest in a program for young people in
Franklin County. More programs of this nature that involve young peo-
ple and bring out parents and others are just what are needed to help
keep our children out of trouble. A big cheer from The Chronicle for Pam
Nobles Dance Studio for its efforts in our community.


December 19,, 2006 was dedicated as "Eileen Annie Ball Day"
because of her excellent service to the Franklin County
Library and to our youth. See story in Franklin Briefs starting
on Page 2.



Public Hearing For

Comp Plan

December 19, 2006
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
The Comprehensive Plan from Franklin County was sent to the powers
that be in Tallahassee and approved. It had been a very contentious
issue and the public hearings were reported in the Chronicle in detail.
Nevertheless, the Plan was challenged in court and then returned to the
County for amending. At this meeting an ordinance was brought for-
ward by the County. In brief the ordinance states:
"An ordinance amending the Franklin County Comprehensive Plan to
adopt goals, objectives and policies, for a capital improvements ele-
ment, to adopt a five year schedule of capital improvements, to amend
policy 1.2 of the recreation and open space element, to amend objec-
tives 2 and 3 and policy 3.1 of the housing element, to amend policy
12.5 of the coastal high-hazard element and to adopt a revised coastal
high hazard area map.

Goal
The County shall undertake actions necessary to adequately provide
needed public facilities to all residents within its jurisdiction in a man-
ner which protects investments, maximizes the use of existing facilities,
and promotes orderly urban growth."
The following are the revised amendments complying with the legal
order:
POLICY 1.2 Proposed capital improvement projects shall be evaluated
and ranked in order of priority according to the following guidelines:
1) Whether the project is needed to protect public health and safety, to
fulfill the county's legal commitment to provide facilities and services,
or to preserve or achieve full use of existing facilities.
2) Whether the project increases efficiency of use of existing facilities,
prevents or reduces future improvement cost, provides service to devel-
oped areas lacking full service, or promotes in-fill development.
3) Whether the project is financially feasible for the local government
in that it can be budgeted without exceeding the county's debt limit.
4) Whether the project is part of a state agency or water management
district.
5) Whether the project is needed to eliminate a public hazard or elimi-
nate an existing capacity deficit, or accommodate new development
and redevelopment facility demands.
OBJECTIVE 2
Public expenditures that subsidize development will be limited to those
improvements contained in the five year implementation schedule
which support the goals, objectives, and policies of all elements and
which maintain adopted level of service standards and meets the exist-
ing and future facility needs.
OBJECTIVE 3
During the initial planning period, 2004-2009 the county will manage
its fiscal resources through the implementation of the following policies
to ensure the provision of needed capital improvements for previously
issued development orders and for future development and redevelop-
ment,.concurrent with the impacts of development.
POLICY 3.1 In providing capital improvements, the county shall limit
the maximum ratio of outstanding indebtedness to no greater than ten
percent of the property tax base.
Policy 12.5 of the Coastal Conservation Element is amended as fol-
lows:
POLICY 12.5 The Coastal High-Hazard Area is defined as the area
below the elevation of the category 1 storm surge line as established by
a Sea, Lake, and Overland Surges from Hurricanes (SLOSH computer-
ized storm surge model. For the purpose of clarity of the adopted map
the exact location'of such surge line can be field verified with a survey
The area known as the Eastpoint Urban Service Area (USA), where it
is in the Coastal High Hazard Area (CHHA), shall-be exempt from the
provisions of the CHHA, as the USA is an existing urbanized area
where various state and county programs have encouraged the infill
and development of the area to take advantage of the existing infra-
structure.
The Coastal High Hazard Area map is adopted as part of the Future
Land Use Map Series. (See map on Page 4)
Any other ordinance in conflict with the provisions of this ordinance is
herewith repealed.
If any section, subsection, paragraph, sentence, clause, or phrase of this
ordinance is held, for any reason, to be unconstitutional, void, or
invalid, the validity of the remaining portion of the ordinance shall not
be affected thereby.
This ordinance adopted this 19th day of December, 2006, in a regular
meeting of the Franklin County Board of County Commissioners
This ordinance shall take effect as provided by law.
With the adoption of this ordinance with the listed revisions the Comp
Plan will then be in compliance.
Public Discussion of the proposed revised amendments:
Marie Marshall *ias the first to step forward. Her main concern was
with highway 98 and the possibility of an "alternative" roadway. She
was assured that there were no plans to abandon or re-route the scenic
drive along the coast of highway 98.

Dan Townsmeire
"I'm Dan Townsmiere with the Apalachicola River Keeper. It has been
three years since the Plan update was initiated. I believe that we have
all learned a tremendous amount about the Comprehensive Plan ...
since the adoption of this Plan in 2005 ... (In the past) I had tried to
push for too much change too fast, and that was a mistake. I appreciate
the Commissioners' willingness to listen to citizen's comments and rec-
ommendations. Over the past two years the Comp Plan and the associ-
ated Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) have reached decision
points and have been pushed ahead above the requests of many citizens
for change. The Comp Plan is now back here a year and a half later.
The EAR is still considered insufficient by the DEA. We are again here
at a decision point. Tonight, once again, I ask you to consider deferring
the adoption of the Plan ... Because of the efforts of two citizens, Don
and Pam Ashley, we now have one more opportunity to make a sub-
stantial difference in the Comp Plan that will require developments to
address needs in our County. Those needs include ... public water
access, water supply planning, affordable housing, and wetland protec-
tion. We need to make these changes to the Comp Plan before further
land use changes are made ..." Mr. Townsmeire then went on to
describe what he considered an example for his recommendation ...
The Phoenix Harbor Development on St. George Island. The project
had land uses changed which are now commercial ... "at this stage of
the game it is obvious that the County's ability to influence that devel-

Public Hearings
Barbara Rohrs-Lanark Water
and Sewer Update
Barbara Rohrs' statement is as
follows:
It has been reported that the
District is operating in a dysfunc-
tional manner, yet in the past 10
months we have completed a vast
amount of costly projects, mak-
ing it appear the District is in the
red on an ongoing basis. This is
reported every month on the
Treasurer's report. This Board
has inherited the past years bills
from the previous Board, which
we are paying, and yet continue


Barbara Rohrs


paying current bills, while paying
in full all the repairs and improve-
ments on the list. These payments
have been made without any
additional financial assistance,
funding, loans, or sale of proper-
ty. For the upcoming year, the
District will open communica-
tions with Carrabelle and possi-
bly Alligator Point, if needed. We
ask that the County Commis-
sioners allow us to focus on
DEP's Consent Order items that
the District is legally bound to
complete. Now that the engineer
has been selected, we are ready to
launch into the Preliminary
Engineering Report and
Environmental Assessment. As
the County Attorney is aware, the
District is represented by a highly
capable attorney, Brian Arm-
strong, whose experience in
regional mergers is respected
statewide. We wish to continue
communicating with the County
Commissioners and appreciate
the offer for any assistance, if
needed.
"Ms Rohrs, have you all done
anything to proceed on the non-
binding referendum-the possi-
bility of merging with
Carrabelle?" asked Ms. Sanders.
"Yes ... we have. We have
addressed a letter to Mayor
Kelley and our attorney has spo-
ken with the attorney from the
City."
"You are into negotiations with
Carrabelle?"
"We have opened communica-
tions with Carrabelle. I believe at
this time everybody is just trying

after the first of the year."
Ms. Sanders and other Board"'
members advised Ms. Rohrs to
pursue negotiations with
Carrabelle as quickly as possible'
since that was the overwhelming'
vote on the referendum with
regards to this issue.
Mr. Snyder a resident of Lanark,,-
and a critic of Ms. Rohrs and the
Lanark Sewer then voiced his.
opposition to what Ms. Rohrs.
had stated. Ms. Pauline Sullivan,
also had a statement placed.on
the record in opposition to Ms.
Rohrs.
Ms. Sanders then asked Mayor
Kelley of Carrabelle ,if the refer-
endum was being acted upon.
Mayor Kelley indicated that the
lawyers from the two groups have
met informally and that she had
heard that a letter from Lanark
and been sent to the City of
Carrabelle but noting has been
acted on as of yet.
"That is a hard predicament out
there in Lanark," stated Ms..
San4ers. "I would like you (the
Co inty Attorney) to look into
what could be the repercussions
of disbanding the Board (Lanark
Water and Sewer) ... I would like
you to look into the disbanding of
the Lanark Water and Sewer
Commission and what would be
the part (played) by the County
Commission (in such an action)
and report back to us at the next
meeting in January." Ms. Sanders
then put her request in the form
of a motion before the Board.
Her motion was approved.unani-
mously.

Don Lively
Don Lively a resident of Lanark
then stepped forward to comment
on the resignation of Mr. Ray
Courage, past treasurer of the
Lanark Village Sewer and Water.
"Mr. Ray Courage-he has been
one of our commissioners at
Lanark-last night at our meet-
ing the other two commissioners
decided that they want to jump
down his throat, plain and simple
English. Over a year's period, Mr.
Courage has done a mighty fine
job and last night was going to be
his last meeting. None of the
commissioners on the Board had
anything good to say about the
man and I would like to correct
them a little bit. I just want him
(Mr. Courage) to know that I
appreciate everything that he
done over his years out there at
Lanark Village; thank-you Mr.
Courage."
A motion was then offered and
approved to send Mr. Courage a
letter of commendation for his
public service.

Alligator Point-
Renourishment Resolution
"This is an issue related to alliga-
tor Point," Alan Pierce informed
the crowd in attendance. "There
are three items that we are going
to be dealing with-here tonight.
And we are on a statutory dead-
line to deal with these three
items. If we are to move forward
with creating funding opportuni-
ties for renourishing the beach at
Alligator Point tonight is the
night that we must act. The three
issues that are before you one is
a resolution, our notice of intent;
the other two are ordinances -
one of the ordinances deals with
the creation of a district that is
only part of the Point; the other
ordinance deals with the creation
of a district that is the entire
Point ... the staff recommends
that you adopt both ordinances
tonight and through the Spring.
we will determine which one is
the most effective and which one
serves the need of the people; but;
we have to adopt them tonight.
Before any actual dollar amount
is imposed on people you will'
come back and you will decide
which is the most effective ordi-
nance to deal with the problems
on Alligator Point."
The Resolution: A Resolution of


Franklin County, Florida electing
to use the uniform method of col-
lecting non-ad Valorem special
assessments levied within the
Alligator Point area located with-
in the unincorporated area of the
County; stating a need for such
levy; providing for the mailing of
this Resolution; and providing for
an effective date.
SThe two ordinances dealt with
what groups of residents at
Alligator Point will contribute
what share to the future beach
renourishment project. This idea
has been ongoing and tonight's
proposal was more or less a mat-
ter of routine. Many residents
from Alligator Point were present
to clarify issues and potential
fears.
Both the Resolution and the two
ordinances were approved by the
Board and with the apparent con-
sent of the representatives of the
Alligator Point area.

Rivercrest Phase I and I
Attorney Pat Floyd was present
to request approval of the final
replats of Rivercrest Phase I and
II. The Board was refreshed on
the subject and the changes were
discussed. The discussion was
routine and ordinary and Mr.
Floyd's requests were approved.

SBid Openings-
Airport Equipment Sale
SSeveral bids were opened dealing
with airport equipment and read
before the Board. The bids were
then given to the airport director,
Ted Mosteller, for study and con-
sideration.

Emergystat-Ambulance
Service
After Mr. Dubose came before
the Commission at the last ses-
sion and promised not the. let
Franklin County down it seems
that is exactly what happened.
The County was left without
emergency ambulance service
due to unforeseen maintenance/
repair and under-staffing. Ms.
Sanders and Mr. Putnal both
made statement of chastisement
and disapproval.

Temolynn White-Wintons-
Coastal Youth Marching
Band
Ms. Temolynn White-Wintons
presented a statement to the
Board. "I personally want to
thank those of you who voted to
allow for our community's youth
to have this gift of a lifetime. The
gift of music is something that no
one will ever be able to take away
from these children and who
knows what doorsthis may open
Sfor them. With ... the above stat-
ed I, wuld like to request some,.
clarity on the following."
Ms. White was concerned with
some confusion with regards to
wages and salaries requisitioned
for herself and some staff mem-
bers. She wanted to assure the
Board that her services to the
Band were and are voluntary and
that whatever the problem, she
had no intention of creating it.
She asked the Board to look into
the misunderstanding and to give
her proper directions on how
these confused happenstances
could be corrected in the future.
The Board thanked her for her
devotion to the children of the
community and directed her and
the others concerned in the mis-
adventure to take the proper steps
in the future.

Mayor Kelley-Carrabelle
Mayor Kelley of Carrabelle made
the proud announcement thatcher
community-after seventeen
months of debate and discus-
sion-had finally completed their
Comprehensive Plan for which
they were commended by all
supervisory and necessary
authorities. Mayor Kelly also
proudly proclaimed that the plan
should be approved shortly.

Report to the Board of
County Commissioners
from Alan Pierce:
1. Resolution of Appreciation for
Eileen Annie Ball
2. Board action on public com-
ments to be sent to the USACOE
regarding freshwater flows. Letter
follows. Board approved.
3. Hospital Board update on
Hospital issues and ambulance.
Black Hawk.
4. Board action to sign FWC
grant for the St. George Island
Boat Ramp. Approved.
5. Provide Board with copy of
letter from Senator Martinez
regarding future Eastpoint Post
Office. The US Post Office is no
longer interested in building a
new post office in Eastpoint.
6. Provide Board with copy of
USACOE letter regarding future
maintenance dredging of Sikes
Cut. The COE is being required
to monitor sea turtle nesting habi-
tat when it does the next dredging
of the Cut.
7. Provide Board with copy of
semi-annual monitoring report of
St. James Bay DRI.
8. Provide.Board with copy of
grant St. George Island
Lighthouse submitted to state to
help pay for rebuilding light-
house. The grant is asking for
$50,000, and the county is not
required to put up any matching
cash. If the grant is awarded the
county will need to work out a
permanent lease with the light-
house/DEP for re-construction
of the lighthouse on county prop-
erty.
9. Provide Board with copy of
letter from Gulf County
Economic Development Council
and my response. Gulf County is
attempting to develop a
Historically Underutilized
Business (HUB) Zone in Gulf
County and Franklin County and
I volunteered to be the point of
contact for the project.
10. Board action on change
orders on Lake Morality Road
and C-30A. Both change orders
result in a reduction in costs. The
cost savings came as a result of
the county road department
doing additional work instead of
paying C.W. Roberts and of a
reduction in the cost of asphalt
from what had been the bid price.
Board action to approve the
change orders will result in a sav-
ings of approximately $750,000.
This money was budgeted
because the Board had to have
money for the entire project in
the event it cost the.bid price.
With the approval of the change
orders, the Board no\i has
approximately $750,000 to apply
toward a new paving program.
That is not enough money by
itself for a road paving program,
but it is a start. There may be
additional funds generated by
savings on CR 67 and Alligator
Point if those projects also come
in under bid. Board action to
approve change orders. Board
approved.
11. Board action to approve
Affordable Housing proposal
submitted in conjunction with the
St. Joe Company. The proposal,
if approved, will be the first step
in actually getting land and funds
to build some affordable housing


in the county. It is a competitive
proposal, which means we are
competing with all the other
applicants across the state. This
proposal is an important first step
in moving from words on paper
to houses on the ground .
Deadline for award is Jan. 26,
and if Franklin County is award-- ''
ed we then enter into a contract
with the state. Board approved.
12. Inform Board that the
Northwest Florida Water
Management District is holding a ,
workshop on Jan.4 at the Gulf.
County Commission meeting,.-
room regarding the Regional,,
Water Supply that they are cur-'.
rently developing. We are trying.
to get the workshop moved to.,
Franklin County as it has greater
impact here. Also, the Board still.
does not have a contract with.,
OTTED for the feasibility study-,:
so the committee ranking the._-
qualifications has not met. We--;
have sent letters out to the appli-
cants stating the Board would not -
receive a recommendation from
the committee until February.
13. Board discussion on funding
requests:
A) Congressional Rep. Allen
Boyd's office responded to the
questions raised at the last meet-
ing. The requests are due by Jan.
S1. Any requests for hospital fund-
ing should go through Boyd's-
regional health care committee.
Any requests for land acquisition
for the seafood industry can be
submitted, but it needs to be tied
to creating or maintaining jobs.
Because they recommend the
Board submit no more, than 5
items I recommend the following ,,:,
revised list: I
1) Renewed appropriation for .
the Eastpoint Breakwater
2) Funding for an improved road \,
to the consolidated school from ':,
SR 65.
3) Funding for land acquisition-
for maintaining a working water,
front.
4) Funding to extend sewer and '-
water lines in areas currently' '
served by septic tanks.
5) Funding for a community'-^'
center at Kendrick Park.
B) State Funding requests- These ,
funding requests are due by Jan 5, -'
and can be finalized at the Jan '.,
2nd Board meeting. The requests'
are submitted on forms called
CBIRS- Community Budget'-
Issue Request System. I have spo- .
ken to Rep. Kendrick and he sup- i
ports the following as a start, but
additional ones could be added:
1)- Request that DOT move the''
funding of the St. George Island-'-
Bike Pathup to his ,ear
. -.)y L f3 .': ", '_a r-, '"
2) Support the funding of all:''-
FRDAP applications the county-''
has pending. Each county can -.
have up to 3 FRDAP grants open. %:
Franklin County submitted its '-'
3rd one back in August for a :'`-
handicap playground at Kendrick ";
Park. If one of the other FRDAP -,
grants can be closed out this ';''
spring the county can submit'!"
another one in August.
3) Funding for a Buck O'Neal':
commemorative statue and sig-';-
nage at Kendrick Park.
4) Funding to install security

14. Inform Board that VMS

15. Board discussion of policy on
waiving tipping fees. At the last
Board meeting, the Board deter-
mined that Mr. Tim Edwards had
a hardship regarding the payment
of tipping fees for a house the
City of Carrabelle condemned.
The Clerk's Office has informed
me that Mr..Edwards paid the tip-
ping fees in the prior fiscal year,
three months before he came
before the Board and asked that
the fees be waived.
The Board is empowered to cre-
ate any policy it thinks is fair, but
the motion by the Board was to
waive the fee as. if it had not been
paid. There was no discussion
about reimbursement for fees
paid in a prior fiscal year.
If the Board chooses to reimburse
Mr. Edwards there needs to be a
fair and logical policy created
because when the Board waives
tipping fees it is reducing the
income to the landfill, and the
landfill budget anticipates receiv-
ing tipping fees. Board direction.
Board tabled.
16. Board action to sign $70,000
CDBG grant for planning and
engineering for sewer extensions
in Eastpoint. This will set us up
for construction money for the

approved.

District Commander

P.O. Box 2288
Mobile, AL 36628-0001
(ATTN: Joanne Brandt, NEPA
Compliance Manager)
As the elected representatives of
the people of this riparian county
we submit these comments on
behalf of all Franklin County rel-
ative to the Environmental
Impact scoping now underway.
First The implementation of a
mediated settlement agreement
reached without Florida partici-
pation is invalid and remains the
subject of active appeal in the
Federal Courts.
Second Unlike the require-
ments in Federal Law that an
Environmental Impact Statement
be completed PRIOR to final set-
tlement, this EIS has been direct-
ed to attempt to remedy the mis-
interpretation of Federal Law by
Judge Jackson.
Given that by way of back-
ground, we applaud your efforts
thus far to make the scope of this
Environmental Impact Statement
substantive and to actively solicit
public involvement and com-
ment. Accordingly, the following
brief comments are made:
Any meaningful assessment of
the diversion of freshwater for
upstream users must be ACF
basin-wide in scope and not con-
fined to benefits of upstream out-


takes without complete and thor-
ough assessment of all reason-
able alternatives and the cumula-
tive adverse downstream impacts;
You are quite right to include the
socio-economic impacts, such as
the attached Ecosystem Services,
since the continued productivity
of the Apalachicola River and
Bayare historically the economic
and cultural backbone of these
rural riparian counties and com-
munities of the Apalachicola
River and Bay.
Limits on the amount of water
use within the basin which result
in loss of downstream flow must
be evaluated to establish an
amount of water available for
current and future uses; and
Finally, when natural drought
and low flows occur, and these
are compounded by unlimited
upstream out-takes without any
consideration of water conserva-
tion, the impact on this diverse,
productive, world-class river and
bay is catastrophic.
Please consider these comments
seriously, and continue to involve
stakeholder participation
throughout. We stand ready to
host any delegation of people
involved in the EIS process at any
stage of its-progress. Let us put a
human face on our Apalachicola
River and Bay. If you have any
questions, please feel free to con-
tact Alan Pierce, Director of
Administrative Services, at 850-
653-9783, ext. 161.
Sincerely,
Russell Crofton, Chairman
Franklin County Commission

Ecosystem Services
Because ecosystem services are
not generally traded in the mar-
ketplace, their full value is not
captured in the conventional eco-
nomic statistics. The market
value of goods and services
derived from ecosystems typically
reflects only the human labor,.
technological and managerial
inputs used for their extraction,
processing, transportation and
distribution. A consequence of
this is that the underlying natural
resources may be unsustainably
exploited or improperly man-
aged.
What are ecosystem services?
The natural environment pro-
vides an array of ecosystem
goods and services that are criti-
cal to the welfare of the human
population and to the support of
life generally. Following are sOme
of the important ecosystem serv-''
ices that have been widely recog-
nized (Daily, 1997), please see
also, http://www.centu-
rycommission.orgicurrent_proj-
ects.asp:
* Production of agricultural food
and fiber products
* Forestry and fisheries produc-
tion
* Setting for outdoor recreational
activity
* Purification of air and water
* Mitigation of droughts and
floods
* Generation and preservation of
soils and renewal of their fertility

Y,


Public Hearing For Comp Plan from Page 1


I- opment are significantly curtailed ... By deferring the Plan and allow-
ing it to go through a set of hearings we will have time to discuss and
put in place several criteria that will accrue meaningful gains for the
,County to provide for necessary and appropriate needs of the County.
So I ask you to consider deferring that Plan and give us a chance to
) think it through, make some changes in the Plan now that will be in
ir place when these future land use amendments come before us."
6)
e "My recommendation," said Alan Pierce, "is that you get this out of
4 the way because this is a court order and a governor and cabinet's rul-
8, ing that you address the issues as we have in this ordinance."
, "But that is not required, is it?" asked Mr. Townsmeire.

y "I'll defer to the County's lawyer on the legal issues, but it is my inter-
tt pretation that we deal with the issues that we were ordered to deal
d with."
Mr. Pierce and Attorney Shuler recommended the adoption of the res-
olution dealing with the specific court ordered requests as soon as pos-
sible. Mr. Townsmiere suggested a four month delay for public input
a which would then leave the whole Plan subject to rejection once again,
'f according to Mr. Pierce.
d
6 "Are you proposing that we totally rewrite the Comp Plan let's just
, start over and re-do it?" asked Mr. Parrish.
S "No Sir ... not at all. In no way am I saying that we need to go back
y and address everything ... but there are some things that we could
ft address now."
d "But can't they be addressed at a later date?" asked Mr. Parrish..
Mr. Townsmiere then explained that his concern was with land use
changes etc. that would be made between now and a later date that then
could not be reversed even if they are deemed ineligible by the eventu-
ally approved Plan.

,f Tom Adams-Island Resident
er "I am surprised at Alan's strong language-"we must do this". One of
g the most egregious things in the first transmittal ... if you pass this what
you do, in my opinion, is create vested rights (to developers) ... I would
:e certainly second the idea that we ought not act in haste but rather act
y with understanding and compassion and with human concern; thank-
it you.
th
es Pat Floyd
y "My name is Pat Floyd and I am a lawyer and I have had some deal-
0 ings with the Administration Commission. (When) they issue an order
, and say to you that this is something that needs to be done, it is not
, something that you should take lightly and pass on and not take any
y action on. Either you need to go forward with it or tell them that you
d are not going to go forward with it. They expect some type of action
y when they deal with this and they expect the attention of the County in
rd dealing with it. This is not going to prevent any other action as you go
down the road ... We may never get to the point where we can address
all of the needs ... so why let that hold up things ..."
al
as Gathana Parmenas-Carrabelle City Commissioner
al
p- Ms. Parmenas was concerned with previous land use changes in the
n CHHA that in her opinion were not properly addressed (St. Joe
6 Company, primarily). "I realize that it is possible to build in the CHHA
\0 but again we have a commitment of directing development outside that
n (area) not into it as those (previously agreed to) are."
At-
)r Billy Buzzett-St. Joe Company
d "I want to respond specifically on the CHHA." Mr. Buzzett first point-
ed out via an evacuation study that Franklin County more than meets
:e the requirements for evacuation from a CHHA. "You go one step fur-
:o their and you limit your density in a CHHA to one unit per acre. Each
n of these issues (referred to by Ms. Parmenas) were raised by the chal-
8, lengers, considered by the court, and in every instance, rejected. The
ch only issues that came back ... were the issues mentioned when this
.y hearing began (outlined at beginning of this article) fixing the High
n Hazard map, adopting a capital improvements element, and putting in
t- a housing number-those were the three things there. Some think that
nt you don't have a willing and able partner in the St. Joe Company ...
u, when you have asked for water access we've provided it; when you've
asked for help on recreational facilities we've provided it; we've talked
about two mile-we tried to work at the eight mile but the DEP would-
:e n't let us put a boat ramp there; when the citizens of this community
ig said that they wanted more public land-the Crooked River tract-we
:k did it; Bald Point, we did it (Mr. Buzzett named others) ... when you
al talk about affordable housing we didn't create the housing problems
y in this County, but we are willing to stand up and help out and be your
:k partner there ... we're listening. The focus today is on these remedial
d, amendments. There will be more amendments I'm sure ... the (judge's
a. court) opinion was that your Plan was pretty dog-gone good except for
ts these issues, these four issues. I probably have 25 to 30 people here with
d me today ... we want to work for a better Franklin County. We're not
trying to turn this into Orlando or anywhere else. We want to be given
a chance. Over the last five years we have continually stepped up to the
:e plate to help-and for the (future) we are going to do the same thing.
se The focus is on these remedial amendments ..."
Le
r- Roger Bybee
C,
t, "The reason for all this stuff is that there was no final consensus that
d was sought or approved by the Franklin County Commission ... The
st final Plan was not found in compliance. The main issue is-and I take
ty exception to what Mr. Pierce said earlier-the CHHA as defined by the
d SLOSH map for Franklin County was finally completed in Aug. 2004.
In that report it stated that the prior standard of the Franklin County
CHHA was in error and incorrect. These standards that we are talking
about-these are not new. The other issue is ... that throughout
Franklin County if you have a seafood related industry then you don't
have to comply with the CHHA requirements and the one unit per acre
which is just residential. So you do need to consider all of these things
when you do it and if it is deferring it so that we get it right after the cit-
izens and the eighteen months of visioningg" that went into it. That is
what we were supposed to have with our Comp Plan update. I think
that a lot of us here are concerned that the time that we spent for the
good of Franklin County was simply dismissed and not considered."
Several others then spoke to the issue including Ann Marzack, Dennett
Rainey, Gene Langston, Bob Allen, Dan Maclain, two spokesmen for
affordable housing, and Billy Dalton a commercial fisherman. Some
were for and some were against the approval of the amendments. The
last speaker I will cover was Don Ashley.

EAWf4wt4 ,;


Public Hearing For Comp Plan from Page 3
glad to see all five commissioners at the meeting of the governor and
cabinet ... I want to make sure that we clarify some things. I challenged
this Comp Plan not to obstruct the development in Franklin County or
to do anything that would hurt this County. Our intent was to give cit-
izens a second chance for a better Comp Plan. When Summer Camp
was approved we believe the citizens of this county were promised bet-
ter planning. Part of that planning was memorialized in your land use
policy of 11.12 and 11.13. That was the substance of the motion ... it
specifically suggested that 11.12 and 11.13 should remain in tact until
the Comp Plan was found in compliance. That in effect is a remedial
action. My question to you Michael (Shuler) is 11.12 and 11.13 in effect
in your current Comp Plan?"
"Until the amended Comp Plan is effective nothing in it is effective.
And it will not be effective until the Board adopts the remedial amend-
ments tonight. The 11.12 and 11.13 will stand repealed once the April
2005 Plan is effective. So they are out; they're gone. But there is noth-
ing to prevent the Board in 2007 for considering other amendments to
consider the cultural heritage aspect or any other aspect. All options are
open."
"Commissioner, I just ask you-why did your chief financial officer
and your governor of the state of Florida make a motion that would
just simply be repealed?" asked Ashley. "Why did they do that? What I
want is a process in Franklin County that gives the citizens a very clear
and transparent opportunity to come before this Board and as a com-
munity suggest amendments that will make your Comp Plan stronger.
If you adopt this Plan tonight essentially you are going to repeal 11.12
and 11.13. And that was precisely the subject of the motion which was
to find the Plan in compliance first then re-address 11.12 and 11.13 to
see if the citizens' protections and opportunities under chapter 1639J5
and those policies are reasonably protected. I have to say this to you
tonight because it is just part of the process and I am required I'm in
the process and we intend to stay in this process until we can find a way
to work constructively with the County Commission. What I would
like to do is hand you this signed version so that it is at least on the
record."
Mr. Shuler then expressed the notion that he and Mr. Ashley had inter-
preted the actions of the governor and cabinet differently. Mr. Shuler
insisted that the action being requested this evening was in agreement
with what the governor and cabinet and the court directed. Mr. Ashley
then responded:
"I just want to read to you the final sentence of conclusion of law 103
which was the subject of the governor and cabinet amendment. It says:
"...finally to be in compliance with future land use element policy
11.12 and 11.13 should await a finding that the rest of the 2020 Plan is
in compliance." And that is essentially what needs to happen. If you
adopt it tonight you are sending a Plan before it is in compliance. You
are simply transmitting remedial amendments and simultaneously
striking through 11.12 and 11.13. If we are going to have large scale
developments, our natural resources need to be protected affordable
housings needs to be guaranteed up front; not gotten at a later time ...
we are suggesting not to be confrontational; not to continue this fight,
we don't want to continue to have disagreements on how we implement
the policies ... You have five priorities in your current capital improve-
ment element none of them talk about emergency medical care, none
of them talk about affordable housing, none of them talk about water
access. Most of out boat ramps need parking facilities. Why wouldn't
we as we transmit the Plan, just take a little bit more time ... to sit

SU N Dear Friends of the Franklin County
HUMANE Humane Society,
$ OCI ETY Merry Christmas from the dogs and
cats that your support has helped
save.
Since we began reorganizing afid re-staffing the Pet Adoption Center
near the middle of September there have been many wonderful
changes.
Besides the deep cleaning and general brightening up that is testimony
to the hard work of Adoption Center Director Kam Marxsen and her
dedicated crew there has been dramatic improvement in the health sta-
tus of animals under our care.
All of the cats and dogs have now been tested for infectious disease.
Unfortunately 12 dogs were found to be heartworm positive and
housed in the general population. The treatment for this insidious dis-
ease averages $400-$700 depending on the severity of the infection and
the Society lacked the funds for this cure.
Through the generous donations of our sponsors these animals have
been successfully treated and the entire population is now on heart-
worm prevention. Special thanks to:
Urscia Mahring from Virginia-"Dixie Rose"
Wray Family Trust-"Buddy"
Terry Brewer from SGI-"Sissy" and "Prissy"
Judy and Billy Blackburn/B.J.'s Pizza from SGI-"Bruno"
Laura Jones-"Baby Girl"
Dale Julian/ Downtown Books from Apalachicola-"Beauty"
Shirley Smit and Enn Nelke-"Red Girl"
Mr. & Mrs. Paul Marxsen from Carrabelle-"JoJo"
Betty Rickards from Apalachicola-"BoBo"
From September through November we logged in over 1,000 hours in
volunteer time. These generous volunteers helped clean the pens; take
animals to major events like Oyster Spat Festival, Seafood Festival and
River Expo; ferry animals to the clinic for treatment and gave freely of
their time for the critical tasks of walking and socializing the animals.
The results of their efforts have been dramatic. During this time we
have adopted out 51 dogs and 7 cats. All were in first-class health with
documentation and fees paid. Words cannot thank them enough.
Through the efforts of Board Member Tress Anderson we applied for
and were accepted into the Hill's Science Diet program for free food.
We now only pay for shipping of the food and the tremendous saving
has been applied to all the other critical areas of animal health.

down, look at those issues and see what we can do to enhance it. That
vote was intended (governor and cabinet vote) to give the citizens of
Franklin County a second chance for better planning. Itis the only rea-
son that I am standing here tonight ... We appeal to you to please give
the citizens a chance to come forward with their constructive ideas that
will put Franklin County in the best position. I appreciate the opportu-
nity and we want to continue to work with you, thank-you." Mr. Ashley
then received a round of applause from the audience.
Mr. Ashey's main point was that more time and consideration should
be given to. the Comp Plan before it was returned to Tallahassee. His
contention was that this was the intent of it being returned to. the.
County in the first place. To send it back immediately without citizen
input would be missing the whole point. He was clearly challenging the
County and placing into the record his legal challenge to the staff's rec-
ommendation and the County's approval of that recommendation.
The County staff's recommendation was that all considerations could


be dealt with at a later date in accordance with Comp Plan standard
procedure. The job at the moment was to return the plan with minimal
additions and recommendations so that a basic Plan could be approved,
and would not be put subject to new violations. The County's staff and
lawyer were of the opinion that Mr. Ashley interpretation was miscon-
strued and that what they.were recommending to the Board was legiti-
mate and proper.
"Is there a statue specifically addressing this point?" explained
Attorney Shuler. "Is there a case law or a court order that I can report
to you today that this is a judicially approved procedure? I can't; it is not
there. But it is the consensus of all the parties involved with the excep-
tion of Mr. Ashley that this is the correct procedure to follow. It is in
fact the policy that DCA has followed in at least two other instances."
After discussion among the Board members and the staff, the Board
made the motion.that the staff ordinance and recommendations be
approved. The Board then voted and approved unanimously.

Humane Society from Page 4
Thanks to contributions by Dr. Hobson Fulmer and Helen Spohrer we
have begun subscriptions to all the elementary classes in Franklin'
County of "KIND NEWS". This is a program associated with the;_
national humane society (www.NAHEE.org) that provides a monthly'
newspaper and teachers' aids to classrooms which help teach young-'.
sters the importance of spay/neuter programs and the value of treating
animals with kindness and respect.
Our "Howl-O-Ween" fundraiser held at Harry A's Porch Club was a
huge success and raised over $6,700; our thanks to Jim Kourkoulis and'
the Harry A's staff. Fundraisers by "Sometimes It's Hotter" and
"Avenue Sea Restaurant" helped bring in much needed funds as did
contributions by The St. George Island Merchant's Association and Joe -
Taylor of "Avenue E Furnishings".
Thanks are also due to-the Franklin County Board of County,
Commissioners who voted to provide $62,000 in funding this year to.
the Humane Society; this is approximately one-fourth of our annual ,
budget. Be sure to thank your Commissioner and let them know that as.
a tax-paying voter you approve of their support.
Upcoming events:
"Art for Arf' our annual gourmet dinner and auction will be held at-
Chef Eddie's Magnolia Grill, 99 11th St. in Apalachicola on Saturday,'
January 20, 2007 from 6:30 to 10:30. Tickets are $75/person. Please?
contact Melody Townsend at 899-5131 or mbtownsend@stgeorgeis-
land.com for reservations. Please help support this important event.
Finally, let me tell you about a wonderful program that I will be reports.
ing on more fully in future reports. Later in January we will participate
in an outreach program sponsored by the Colorado Humane Society.:
These kind people are located in an area of rapidly expanding popula- _
tion and are able to accept at-risk animals from other areas. Volunteers -
from the Franklin County Humane Society will be forming a caravan'
and driving the 1,700 miles (each way!) to deliver 100 dogs and cats to
be adopted in the Rockies. It is an unbelievable act of kindness by the -
Colorado Humane Society and a selfless effort by our dedicated volun-"
teers. Any contribution you can make to help defray the numerous
expenses will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again for your support and Merry Christmas from the fur balls
Sincerely yours,
John B. Spohrer, Jr.

Tyndall Sets Dates For

Gulf Coast Salute 2007
Tyndall Air Force Base officials have set March 24 as the date for the
Gulf.Coast Salute 2007 Air Show and Open House.
This year's theme, "Salute to America's Heroes," will honor local vet-
erans and our servicemen and women currently conducting military
operations at home and abroad.
The Navy Blue Angels will be headlining the one-day, joint-service
show. Performers and demonstration teams from the Air Force, Army,
Navy and Marine Corps will be thundering overhead. The Black
Daggers, an elite Army Special Operations Command parachute
demonstration team, will perform tactical jumps like those used to infil-
trate behind enemy lines during special operations combat missions.
Military aviation heritage will be showcased as "warbird" aircraft dat-
ing back to World War II fly in formation alongside today's most
advanced fighter jets. Civilian aerobatic performers including the inter-
national aerobatic champion, Patty Wagstaff, will fill the air with loops,
rolls and dives as they perform break-taking maneuvers.
Not all Gulf Coast Salute 2007 events will be in the air. As the family
event of the spring, the Air Show will also host numerous aircraft stat-
ic displays, vendors and attractions on Tyndall's flight line. The jet
truck will captivate and entertain children and adults alike. This year's
"Kiddie Hangar," which is an aircraft hangar full of activities, games
and flight simulators for children, will be filled with entertainment.
Admission and parking are free. For additional information, visit
www.tyndall.af.mil.

Old Man And Oysters

Commentary

BY RICHARD E. NOBLE

An old man came walking into the restaurant. I had to look twice. This
old man had grown old right before my eyes. A lot of this type thing
has been going around in my world lately. Little girls who I just last saw
scrambling around on a floor were now mothers themselves; teenagers
I once knew somehow became school teachers and policemen; my one
time paperboy is now a marine colonel and this old man was once a
middle aged man I knew. He had a bulldozer and a dump truck when
last I saw him. He cleared my lot as a matter of fact. But there he was
sitting over in a corner of this restaurant with his ball cap on, reading
the menu.' .

I gave hima look and a.big smile when he came in but he didn't recog-
nize me it had been a long time. I kept looking over at the old timer
because I was still somewhat shocked. I could look at his face and
remember just how he looked thirty years ago. He was basically the
same today his cheeks a little hollowed, his step more tentative, his
gaze slightly glassy but basically the same guy. He had that same big
smile and that constantly bemused look. I had absolutely no doubt as
to who he was. He took off his ball cap and placed it on the table and
I suddenly realized why he always wore a baseball cap.

When the waitress came, over he joked and laughed and put in his
order. The special for the day in this little seafood community that has
been my home for so many years was raw oysters on the half shell.
Oysters have been caught right out in the bay in this area for decades -
maybe even a century or so.

My wife and I were there for the oysters. We had already downed four
dozen and we were now sitting back and sloshing down the last of our
draft beer.

As I glanced over every, now and then to check on my old neighbor, I
noticed that he had gotten the raw oysters also'- and he was having the
same trouble that we were having. For some reason the oyster shucker
had not cut the oysters away from the bottom shell. That's not a major
catastrophe but it is a little annoying to have to be scrapping the oysters
out of the shell. And, although one might expect something like this in
New York, one didn't expect it in this little oystering community -
where everybody knew better.

The old man struggled with the raw oysters attempting to scrape them
away from the shell with his tiny fork. I could see that he was getting a
little annoyed. That seems to happen more and more often to "older
folks". He began looking around for the waitress as he played around
with his oysters. But she was busy. The place was packed and she was
running all over the place. Finally, seeing that the oysters were being
shucked no more than five steps away from his table at the little raw
bar he rose from his seat picked uip his straw basket lined with deli
paper and headed for the raw bar.

I could see that he had developed a little case of the "shakes". Hi traw
basket was giggling in his hand like a Spanish maraca. He w ked
straight ahead concentrating on his goal and trying to catch the oyster
shucker's eye not noticing that juice and water from in his basket was
sloshing out of his straw tray all over the place most heavily down the
front of his nicely pressed tan trousers. He was spilling so muchjwater
over himself that I almost jumped up from my seat to run and help. My
wife saw my agitation and she turned to take a look. She watched as he
continued drenching himself all the way over to the raw bar. We.both
looked at each other and smiled.

As teenagers we probably would have witnessed this event and giggled
and snickered but now, being just a few years behind my good neighbor,
a sadness comes along with the slight amusement. It is really sad but,
like a couple of insensitive kids, one'has to laugh.

After he got his oysters cut away ifom the bottom shell, laughing and
chatting all the while, he turned and headed back to his seat. I forced
my wife to turn around and watch. stwas the same on the way back to
his table as it was 6n the way over -' i not worse. The poor old boy was
soaked.

When he sat down at his table he gathered up a fresh napkin and pro-
ceeded to spread it out onto his lap. 0f course when he looked down at
his lap he was completely shocked. 'How had his lap become soaked
with water? He stared down at his pants and my wife and I could just
hear the gears moving. "My God, what did I do ... wet my pants? I did-
n't feel anything. There must be something wrong here." Suddenly he
looked up to the ceiling. That must be it. The damn ceiling leaks.

The ceiling was one of those warehouse type deals. All the rafters and
pipes were left visible for the effect'. When my old buddy saw the big
round pipes running across the rfiters, he had a revelation. One of
them pipes up there must be leaking. When the waitress came to his
table we watched the silent movie.

The old man says something. They both look down at his lap. The poor
waitress is horror struck. She grabs up some napkins and starts scrub-
bing at the poor old man's crotch. The old man's face turns red then
the waitress' face follows. The old man wards her off. He says some-


thing and then they both gaze up ~the ceiling and stare at the giant
cream colored pipes running across he rafters. The man continues to
talk as the waitress shakes her hea d shrugs her shoulders. My wife
and I now had our napkins up o. ,our faces trying to disguise our
laughter. ''

But I must say we weren't laugh ,t the poor old cougar; we were
laughing with him or at ourselves J.ause without doubt in a very few
years even with the grace of Godw~& e we are. And one day Sonny, if
you're lucky enough, even you.

A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


The Franklin Chronicle


(22) 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,
University of Alabama Press, 1993, 202pp. Doing business in
the antebellum South.required a very delicate balancing act -
with the central role in the process played by the coastal mer-
chant. From this vantage point the merchant manipulated the
resources from the upriver suppliers and through an intricate
economic and banking network provided cotton to the interna-
tional brokers. It was, in effect, a closed system on each river
under the careful control of the coastal merchants. This study
focuses on the port of Apalachicola, Florida, and the business-
men who created a chain of international finance and trade in
the promotion and distribution 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 reinforces the argument that
the South was self-sufficient and not dependent on other regions
for its food supply. Willoughby explains in fascinating detail.
how the businessmen associated with the area's cotton trade
coped with the poor conditions of transportation, communica-
tion, money, and banking.
Early regional economies revolved around the rivers that repre-
sented the primary transportation arteries for trade in the Old
South. Cotton businessmen 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 con-
ditions retarded the economic growth of this frontier area, and
only the innovations of these coastal businessmen enabled the
continuance 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 fundamentally 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. Bookshop price =
