and some from as far away as Canada gathered to raise funds for the
Franklin County Humane Society. Art and "other stuff" sold for from
a few dollars to nearly a thousand dollars per item.
The evening started with a silent auction followed by a traditional auc-
tion. Harry Arnold sounded just like the farm auctioneers I remember
from my youth. He even managed to wangle a winning bid of $45.00
for a plastic lawn flamingo. By the time the auction was over, the
Franklin County Humane Society had about $28,000 more to use for
the benefit of homeless and abused animals.

Phoenix Harbor PUD


BY RICHARD E. NOBLE

Dan Garlick
"My name is Dan Garlick. I am
the agent for the developer; I am
not the developer. This is a
planned use change ... I have
been working on this for about
eight months now. The project
consists of 28 acres more or less
on St. George Island located in
the Northwest corner of the
causeway of Franklin Boulevard
and North Bay Shore Drive.
What we propose to do on that
28.acres is to create 58 units ...
We plan to place these units on
lands that are currently zoned
commercial and residential and
out of that land we are going to
"gift" 2.5 acres that are going to
be given to the County for a boat
ramp and whatever uses the
County would like ... a restroom
and a parking area. Why are we
doing this? Basically what we
have right now is a tract of land
that has several items on it that
are sensitive to say the least. You
have wet lands; you have an
eagle's nest that is active; and you
have very important shellfish
waters that are adjacent to the
site. The land right now has den-
sity around it that is higher than
we propose [some are 3 units per
acre; some are 8 units per acre;
some are 12.9 units per acre; and
some are commercial and 1 unit
per acre-the commercial zones
at present zoning could be restau-
rants, hotels, motel, or a marina].
The reason that we have chosen
to go this route is that we realize
that this is a sensitive area." Mr.
Garlick then went on to outline
his developer's plans to protect
the environmental sensitivities
mentioned above-the eagle's
nest, the runoff problems and


type roads, the sensitive shellfish
areas etc. "We are not doing this
just because we want to do it; we
have to do it to a certain degree. If
we didn't want to do it, we would
just go back to the commercial
aspects and go that route. We
think that we can meet what the
State requires for Advanced
Waste Water Treatment-which
is the sewage part ..." Mr.
Garlick then stated environmen-
tal safety procedures that the
developer has incorporated into
his plan. "The issues that have
come up in regards to the units is
still-is what I am going to say
is-the fear and mistrust of what
this project could do to shellfish
waters. I can assure you that if
you go with the principal uses
your impacts are going to be sub-
stantially higher than what we are
proposing ... How are you going
to contend with people who
make their living on the Bay (if
something negative happens)?"
Mr. Garlick then informed the
Board that his developer would
be willing to impose a 20 thou-
sand dollar fee on each and every
new home to be constructed
within the development. This
money would be given to the
County and placed at its discre-
tion.
At this point the public was asked
to offer comments. There were
more than twenty individuals
who spoke in favor of the project
and a half a dozen or so who
spoke against the project. The
arguments were traditional with
regards to this matter. If you have
lived here for any length of time
you know most of them by heart
yourself. I will deal with a few
from each side who are represen-
tative of the opposing ideas.


Dave McLain-Riverkeeper
"The recommendations as the
Taskforce reached them in con-
sensus-The Task Force consen-
sus was that the County
Commission consider a density
of one dwelling per acre due to
the sensitivity of the
Apalachicola resources at risk in
this CHHA (Coastal High
Hazard Area); further that if
instead the Commission favor-
ably considers approval the
Planned Unit Development of 58
units proposed by the developer,
that a one time up-front mitiga-
tion fee be assessed of twenty
thousand dollars per dwelling
unit and paid by the developer as
a part of the public benefit to be
accrued by a PUD prior to the
issuance of any land clearing per-
mit to be dedicated to activities to
be approved by your Task Force
to support sustainable commer-
cial seafood in Franklin County.
And that the two (2.5) acre plot
offered to the County should be a
constructed and dredged boat
ramp with adjacent toilet facili-
ties which will be a part of that
public benefit bound with a per-
petual covenant to be available to
commercial seafood launch and
recovery as a matter of priority.
Dap Garlick then stated that he
and his developer could deal with
and accept all of the above-
dredging, boat ramp-with facili-
ties, twenty thousand per unit up
front or a (previously mentioned)
performance bond of one million
dollars.

Jeannie McMillian-
Islander and Business
Owner
"I'm Jeannie McMillian and I


live on the Island. One of my
concerns is the traffic. You have
58 units assuming two cars per
unit; you've got a Budweiser
truck, a Miller Light truck and a
Gas truck; blocking\almost every
morning to get out on Island
drive." She went on to describe
boats and trailers and no access
for cars on the main roads. "My
other concern is that I really don't
know what advanced waste water
is. I just know what I saw after
Dennis. I saw sewage being
pumped by the County into the
Gulf; I saw aerobic systems
popped up; I saw sewage every-
where. And the closer a sewage
treatment plant is to the Bay-
whether it is advanced or not;
which is about three foot lower
than the beach-is going to be a
catastrophe. If the electricity is
off it will not be doing 'what it is
supposed to do. Fifty-eight units
means about 180 toilets ... we
really need to look at that ... you
are only two blocks away from
the bay."

Ruth Schoelles
"I'm the realtor on this project ...
Sand let me tell you first that what
I would lose on this project
would not outweigh what I
would gain. The Schoelles have
been in the oyster business for a
long, long time. My husband
operated an oyster house here for
years. This is a good project. I
worked with this property for
three or four years. I had several
developers talk to me 'about it. I
met Mr. Strickland. He is the first
person in forty years that I have
worked with that first wanted to
talk to me about environmental.

Harry Arnold auctioning off pink flamingos.

Of particular interest was the sale of a landscape painted during the
course of the evening by Canadian artist, David Lacey (www.david-
laceygallery.com). Mr. Lacey donated the painting to help pay for the
shipment of dogs to Denver, Colorado as the first installment in an out-
reach program sponsored by the Colorado Humane Society. The
Colorado group has agreed to take as many as 110 animals from
Franklin County to be adopted by Denver area residents. This will free
up much needed room at the Franklin County shelter so that shelter
manager Kam Marxsen won't have to turn otherwise acceptable ani-
mals away. Artist Lacey, recognizing that, "Dogs and cats here have the
worst struggle of anywhere I've seen", offered to paint the landscape,
the income from which was to go toward freeing up more shelter space.
He could not have foreseen how successful his project would be. The
bidding for the landscape stalled and auctioneer Harry Arnold offered
a $1000.00 donation to get the bidders excited again. He evidently got
enough excitement kindled because further donations from John

The Chestnut Street

Cemetery

A Forgotten Heritage
BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE
Between Sixth and Eighth Streets and facing Avenue E in the historic
town of Apalachicola is a shady green island of peace and tranquility
in the midst of the often loud and vital activity of the town. Graveyards
have usually been shown in movies, artwork, books and even cartoons
as dark, sinister, scary places full of ghosts and malevolent spirits but in
the real world, cemeteries are places where we recall good memories of
loved ones and friends.
The old Apalachicola Cemetery has had many names in its history but
is probably best known as The Chestnut Street Cemetery (Avenue "E"
was formerly known as Chestnut Street). The earliest marker still visi-
ble in the cemetery is that of Arietta Jenkins who died in November of
1832 and the most recent is the monument of May Isabelle Howze who,
was laid next to her husband in November of 2003. The Chestnut Street
Cemetery is the oldest now existing in Apalachicola although there was
an earlier one near what is now Battery Park. That Cemetery was
moved to Magnolia Cemetery in the 1930's as a WPA project. Chestnut
Street Cemetery lists 533 gravesites although there may be more or
fewer people actually buried there. Many records have been lost and
some of the remaining records are inconsistent at best.
Chestnut Street Cemetery has many stories to tell to those who stop to
listen as many tourists do when they pass through our picturesque little
town. There are names on the stones that we recognize because we have
read them on the businesses and old buildings around Apalachicola.
There is a monument simply dedicated to "Rose, a faithful servant",
age 29. Confederate States of America veterans lie side by side with
Union Army veterans. Many lodges are represented on the stones, such
as the Masons, The Oddfellows, Shriners and Woodmen of the World.
Town fathers, slaves, soldiers of both sides and lodge members are
memorialized with a variety of markers made of wood, marble, lime-
stone, granite, brickwork and even iron.
Recently Dolores Roux, whose stories about Chestnut Street Cemetery
are being telecast on Forgotten Coast TV, mentioned that a visitor with
an interest in history had questioned why there were two gravestones
with confederate headstones and union footstones. The name on the
stones was "Hull". Intrigued, I visited the site and found not just two,
but five headstones with the name "Hull" on them. The visitor had mis-


".' "3.'.y -a .- ., -^ ..w . ; J *;g A.- ,-\ *- ."

Hull family plot.
taken the headstones of two other graves for footstones. The mystery
deepened; however, as I researched the family resting there. The largest
stone, in the middle, marked the resting place of Francis Hull, a
woman, as determined by the inscription, although "Francis" is the
spelling for a man's name. The stones of J. H. Hull and R. R. Hull show
them to be union soldiers, serving with Co. I, 4th Missouri Cavalry,
although searches of the union rosters and the rosters for the 4th
Missouri Cavalry failed to locate them. I had better luck with L. N.
Hull and R. H. Hull. They were listed in the Hartman Biographical
Rosters of the American Civil War but were listed in the miscellaneous
section with the notation, "does not appear on any rolls but claimed to
be members of Co. B, 4th Florida Infantry". Is the story one of "broth-
er against brother" as happened so often during that tragic war (aren't


all wars tragic?) or is there another story waiting here to be ferreted out?
So far I have hot yet found any descendents of the Hulls in the area but
there may be someone here that has further information about these
graves. If so, please contact me.
Many stories like this are waiting to be told but the stories are fast being
lost to the breezes of indifference. The signs of neglect are everywhere.

displaced cover slabs and the graves of once respected and loved per-
sons slowly filling with trash blown in by the uncaring winds. The sto-
ries must be told soon before they are lost forever. A series of articles is
planned to tell the tales of The Chestnut Street Cemetery. In that task,
you may be able to help. If you know tales of drama, comedy, tragedy,
romance or history connected to the cemetery, contact me, Tom
Loughridge, through the Franklin Chronicle0or directly. My address is:
P.O. Box 337, Apalachicola, FL 32329, telephone (850) 927-2899 or e-
mail me at tjloughridge@mchsi.com. I will be happy to include many
of your stories in future installments. Maybe together we can save the
life of a fine old part of our cultural heritage.
I want to thank some of the people who helped me in the preparation
of this introductory installment. Without their help and courtesy this
would have been a much more difficult task. Thank you: Laura Moody,

Administrator; Dolores Roux; Mrs. Patsy Philyaw; Rosa Tolliver; Doris

Weems Hospital--

EMT Revolt
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
Chuck Colvert, Weems Hospital CEO, first stepped forward. He intro-
duced members of the Hospital Advisory Committee and other con-
cerned and involved physicians. He then turned the podium over toDr.
David Pierce who represented the hospital's professional staff. Dr.
Pierce complemented the Board on their achievements thus far and
commiserated with them as regards to all the well known difficulties.
"The leadership, I must say right now is awesome. We have leadership
who listens to everybody. I can not speak highly enough about Mr.
Colvert. I just want to let you all know that we have two new Doctors
in Carrabelle; Dr. Chris Ritman and his wife Dr. Kim Ritman. I think
that you will find them to be a wonderful addition to the community.
They have (both) been friends of mine since medical school; they are
like family." Ms. Sanders then complimented Dr. Pierce for his service
above and beyond the call in these stressful times. She also spoke to all
the criticism that has been a part of this action. "I think that you are
going to find," offered Dr. Pierce, "that every penny that you have put
into this in the long run you are going to be very happy that you did. It
was rough. I know and what you put into it was amazing. But you will
be happy with the results."

Spohrer, Harry Pierce, Bud Hayes, Jerry Thompson, Bob and Carol
Landis,' The-Artemis Gallery and George Mahr brought the transporta-
tion fund up to $7,400.00. That is more than enough to ship all the dogs
in the shelter to Denver, freeing up room for afresh start and probably
saving, the lives of many fine animals. There should also be some
money left over for future shipments as they are needed. The pets are to
be shipped via a commercial animal transportation carrier and will
leave Monday, January 29 for their new homes in the "Mile High City".
I will have photos and a report on the event in the next issue of the
Chronicle.
The Humane Society is very pleased with the turnout at the auction
and dinner. President John Spohrer wants to thank all who came and
all who bid on the art and "other stuff" as well as those who donated
to the auction. He says the money will be used to help meet payrolls,
provide more fenced area and help seek a solution to the animal waste
problem which has been a source of concern to many. There are also
many bills left from the previous administration as well as back taxes
that were left over and need to be settled. The income from the sales
and the donations will make a big dent in those needs.
Mr. Spohrer also wants to stress that, although in the past animals were
routinely euthanized to make room for more animals, the only reason
for euthanasia now is the health of the animal. Sometimes animals are
just too ill or too badly injured to get well. Animals are never put down
just to make room for more animals.
Humane treatment seems to have returned to the Franklin County
Humane Society. If they continue to receive the kind of support from
the community that has been shown recently, they can become a
Humane Society that Franklin County will be proud to call its own.
"If you have men who will exclude God's creatures from the shelter of
compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with
their fellow men." -St. Francis of Assisi (A.D. 1181?-1226).




Fate Of 'An American

Treasure' Debated
BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE
On the evening of Saturday,' January 13, a large group of interested
people met at the Apalachicola Museum of Art to discuss the preserva-
tion of the Apalachicola River and Bay system. The meeting was held
in the restored 1845 Fry Conter House that now houses the Museum.
The occasion was the display of the "Apalachicola River, An American
Treasure" exhibit. The exhibit is a collection of photographs by well-
known photographers, Richard Bickel and Clyde Butcher and a show-
ing of the film produced by Elam Stoltzfus of Blountstown. Sammy
Tedder was also there to play music from the scores of the Apalachicola
River film and from the documentary, "Living Waters". Mr. Tedder
composed the music for both documentaries.
After refreshments and an opportunity to relax to Mr. Tedder's music,
Marie Marshall introduced the guests and the topic for the evening. The
purpose of the discussion was to "brainstorm the short term and long
term challenges to the river and bay". Richard Bickel made an impas-
sioned plea for some sense to be used in development of the area. He'
mentioned Scipio Creek specifically, asking, "How can we continue
rampant development and continue to expect a viable crab industry?"
He also said, "Continued commercial development right up to the
water's edge is inexcusable and unforgivable. (Development) is ruining
our last great bay and no one seems to care and there is absolutely no
regard for what we have here."
Another member of the audience said that we are fighting back by voic-
ing our opinions and informing people about what's going on. He said
this meeting is one way we are doing that. When questions arose about
how the Planning and Zoning board was handling development,
Planning and Zoning chairman Frank Cook explained that the board is
exploring ways to improve the laws and rules that govern development
to head off future problems. Presently they must operate under the laws
that exist; if the law doesn't expressly forbid something, they allow it.
He also said that they are trying to save all the old buildings downtown
that they can. They want to preserve the character for which
Apalachicola has become famous.
The meeting ended after about an hour and a half of thorough discus-
sion of the problems and some possible solutions. The meeting will
serve as a springboard to other discussions and will help to keep the
problems surrounding our fast growing area in front of people's eyes.
Maybe with close attention from the public, the local authorities will be
motivated to continue their search for solutions.

IFAS Extension Director
Extension Update Report
Gulf of Mexico Fishery
Management Council Update:
The GMFM will meet January
22-26, 2007 in Point Clear,
Alabama. During the meeting,
the Joint Reef Fish/Shrimp
Management Co pmittees plan to
resume deliberations on Joint
Reef Fish Amendment 27/
Shrimp Amendment 14. The
GMFMC at its August meeting
delayed discussions on that
amendment until after the first of
the year in order to collect more
data. The amendment proposes
to reduce directed and incidental
fishing mortality on the red snap-
per stock and manage effort in
the shrimp fishery 'to prevent
excessive bycatch of juvenile red
snapper. Under consideration are
alternatives to reduce total allow-
able catch (TAC) for red snapper,
along with other regulatory
changes designed to keep the red
snapper stock on track with its
rebuilding plan. The committees
will also discuss an options paper
for Shrimp Amendment 15. The
options paper examines alterna-
tives to further reduce bycatch
and effort in the penaeid shrimp
fishery, and to improve enforce-
ment through the requirement of
vessel monitoring systems.
FL Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission Update: The FWC
has scheduled a series of public
workshops and a statewide video
conference to hear what people
think about the future of saltwa-
ter fishing in Florida. FWC is
working, with a group of stake-
holders who represent commer-
cial and recreational fishing,
research and environmental inter-
ests to develop a draft vision doc-
ument regarding the future man-
agement and protection of
Florida's marine fisheries
resources. The Commission is
now asking for public comment
on the draft document which
includes a vision statement and
five focus areas relating to marine
habitat enhancement/protection,
ecosystem management, re-
search, interagency coordination,
fundingand staffing .needs..The
document is available at

Student Union East 2nd floor
conference room. The statewide
video conference is February
27th 3-5 p.m. (EST) at the FWC

Report to the Board of County
Commissioners
1 Board action to approve
Resolution from Red Cross desig-
nating February 11-17, 2007 as
Hazardous Weather Awareness
Week. Approved by Board.
2 Provide Board with copy of
Final Draft of Northwest Florida
Water Management District
Regional Water Supply Plan for
Franklin and Gulf Counties. The
Plan concludes that Gulf and
Franklin County have adequate
water supplies. Gulf County
obtains the majority of its water
from the Gulf County Canal that
used to serve the paper mill.
Franklin County obtains the
majority of its water from wells
into the Floridan aquifer. Gulf
County is currently upgrading the
canal and water treatment plants
for the future. For Franklin
County, the WMD has done test
wells and determined that ade-
quate water, exists in the aquifer
in the northern part of the coun-
ty. However, the District is not in
the business of drilling produc-
tion wells and distribution sys-
tems, so before the county water
districts need more water a great
deal more work needs to be done
in order to develop a productive
well field.
To that end, the county is still
waiting for the contract from the
Governor's office for the feasibili-
ty study.

6 Mr. Tim Edwards is here to
discuss his tipping fee charge for
the disposal of his mother's

demned. While the Board did
vote to waive the tipping fee, the
action does not address what
really happened. Mr. Edwards
had paid the tipping fee in
September, several months before
the Board voted to waive it. If
Mr. Edward's is to receive his
money, the Board will have to
make a motion to reimburse him,
and that money would come out
of the tipping fees fromthis year.
The Board decided that because
of, the confusing circumstances
surtbunding this incident that in
this particular case the best
course of action was to reimburse
Mr./Edwards.

Rendell as the Library Director
effective today, and at an annual
salary of $35,000. This is less
than what Ms. Eileen Annie Ball
was making so it is within the
Library budget. Board approved.
9 Update on Alligator Point. On
Saturday, January 13, the
Alligator Point Taxpayers
Association met with Ms.
Camille Tharpe, GSG, and me.to
discuss the funding options avail-
able for beach renourishment.
While there was discussion about
which option was preferred, and
MSTU or MSBU, there was over-
whelming support for the Board
to continue to develop the
options. Mr. Ken. Osborne,
APTA president, may want to say
a few words, but I recommend
the Board direct Mr. Shuler and I
to negotiate a contract with GSG
to complete Phase II and Phase
III of the Beach Renourishment
project. The proposed cost is
-$25,000 and I recommend the fee
be paid out of the Bald. Point
Trust Fund. Board approved
without comment from Mr.
Osborne.
10 Mr. Dai Townsmiere would
like to provide the Board with an
update on the progress of the
CAC. This address by postponed
due to the length of the meeting.
Dear Mr. Shores:
Franklin, County was awarded a
DOT grant in 2003 for the con-
struction of a bike path along


Bluff Road, a road leading out of
the City of Apalachicola. The
bike path is intended to lead from
the city limits to an existing coun-
ty little league baseball complex.
The bike path will provide a safe
route for children on bicycles rid-
ing to and from the little league
complex. Currently, the children
have to ride in a lane of traffic as
there is no paved shoulder, nor
sidewalk connecting the park to
,.the city.
The DOT grant was for approxi-
mately $144,000. The project
went to bid using the DOT
approved design and the low bid
was approximately $425,000. The
county negotiated with the low
.bidder, C.W Roberts, but because
of construction costs could not
Spring the project into budget.
::Thus, for three years Franklin
County has had a grant it can not
'utilize, and DOT has its funds
dedicated to a project that is not
moving forward.
The Bluff Road bike path project
was selected by the Franklin
County Commission, because of
the need to provide a safe path for
children on bicycles to get to the
main little league baseball park
for the Apalachicola area. The
park now has a soccer field so
-more children are utilizing the
park. The Board requests the
.Department review the grant in
light of the safety issues and
determine if additional funds
'could be made available.
As an option, the Board requests
the Department consider allow-
ing the project to be built in phas-
es, but this is only functional if in
fact the Department has money
for the future phases.
The City of Apalachicola sup-
ports this project and a letter of
support will be forthcoming. If
.you have any questions, please
contact me at 850-653-9783, ext.
161.

Matters for Board Action 1/16/07
1 Need board action on accept-
ance of a Local Law
Enforcement Block Grant in the
amount of $1000 in fed funds
awarded to the Sheriff's
Department for Traffic -Control
Safety Vests. Since the Board acts
as the sub grantee, we must
approve the certification of
acceptance and request for the
payment. The grant period runs
from February 1, 2007 to July 31,
2007.
2 In order for the Sheriff's Dept.
to remain eligible for shared
funds from the .U.S. Iepaltneit
of Justice, they must submit an
Annual Certification Report for
the fiscal year 2006. The Sheriff
has submitted that report which
requires the signature of the
Chairman even though it reports
receipt of no funds for that year.
Need board action to approve the
Chairman's signature on the
Sheriff's Federal Annual
Certification Report to the U.S.


Department of Justice.
Hospital information
As of today, there were transac-
tions noted where Medicare pay-
ments were received in the
amounts of $57,112 and
$99,656.31 for a total of
$156,768.31.
Ambulance information
There is a balance in the
Emergystat budgeted fund of
$144,020. My finance director
included an additional $100,000
in the Reserve for Contingencies'
fund planning for a financial situ-
ation with the ambulance. To get
the ambulance service up and
running for the next three
months, the Board would need to
make a motion to approve a line
item budget amendment as fol-
lows:
Increase 001.51.581.9100
Hospitals-Transfer to Hospital
Fund $244,020.00
Decrease 001.51.526.3400
Ambulance-Other Contract
Services $144,020.00.
Decrease 001.99.584.9600
Reserve for Contingencies
$100,000.00
Increase 201.381.100 Interfund
Transfer Budget Trf Gen Fund
$244,020.00
Increase 201.5 1.526.3400
Ambulance-Other Contract
Services $244,020.00
The Board will probably have a
shortfall before revenues are
received through the ambulance
service, so be aware you may
have to address this issue again
within the next few months.

"I would like to attend the area
contingency planning meeting in
Mobile, Alabama-the last week
in March ... They are looking at
setting up defined response capa-

and the Florida Panhandle. We
are looking at doing specific, site
by site, response capabilities."
This request by Mr. Baker was
approved.
"The other item is in May-the
14th to the18th-I would like to
take Mike Watand Pam Register
both down to Ft. Lauderdale for
the Governor's hurricane confer-

one particular week-but I think
that this is important."

few, done so much, against so
many, for so long in the name of
confusion and disorder.
Unfortunately, this has not been
the Lanark Village Water and
Sewer District's "Finest Hour" or
month or year, for that matter.
But we here at the Chronicle shall
persevere because as Winston
also said: In War: Resolution; In
Defeat: Defiance; In Victory:
Magnanimity; In Peace: Good
Will ... and in Journalism:
patience, perseverance, and seem-
ingly infinite repetition must be
preserved in the name of
Freedom and Democracy.

Brian Armstrong-Lawyer
My name is Brian Armstrong. I
intend to be very brief and give
you and update. The Lanark
District has sent a letter to the
City of Carrabelle and said-
Let's sit down and talk about a
merger or other consolidation of
the systems. We did receive a
response from the city of
Carrabelle on Dec. 28; and Our
Board was invited to go to this
week's meeting on Thursday. Ms.
Thoman is going to be there ...
You know we have to think this
out well. I mean we have been
doing this a long time-and by
the way my name is Brian
Armstrong and I am counsel for
Lanark Water and Sewer District


Brian Armstrohg
(from a law firm in Tallahassee).
There are a number of issues ...
that have to be considered by
both parties. We have identified
those issues ... and we intend to
provide that to the City
(Carrabelle) and Ms. Thoman
expects and would like to ask the
Citylto then say okay, we have, a
bunch of issues that we need to
discuss--can, we sit down and
start discussing? That hopefully is
going to happen on Thursday. We
are hopeful that we will have a
positive response. I do want to'be
very clear on the record ... both
(Lanark Water Board members)
have indicated to me that we are
not there to sabotage-to not
make this happen-but rather to
make,it happen; if there is a way
to make it happen to the best
interests of Lanark. I have been
involved in many; many of these
deals and never have I faced a
deal where we haven't been able
to make it happen when both par-
ties want it to. So that would be
our intention. Hopefully the next
time that we speak to you it will
be to say that we are in discus-
sions."


"Mr. Shuler," asked Ms. Sanders.
"We have been looking into some
things at the last meeting; were
you able to look into those?"
"Yes Ma'am," responded Attor-
ney Shuler while further explain-
ing that he had reduced his opin-
ions and recommendations to
writing and supplied a copy to all
those concerned. "Essentially we
cannot increase the Board
(Lanark Sewer) membership
from 3 to 5; the County Com-
mission can not act as an ex offi-
cio governing Board of Lanark;
and the Lanark District can be
dissolved by referendum ..."
"It can be dissolved by referen-
dum?" interrupted Ms. Sanders.
"Yes, that is my opinion," offered
the County Attorney.
The Attorney was questioned
about a possible future referen-
dum and he reminded the Board
that an election to replace Mr.
Courage had already been sched-
uled for March.
"What I was thinking was-can
we put that question (to dissolve
the Lanark Water and Sewer
District) on the ballot. We should
have put that question on that
ballot to start with. Now (also) if
we do disband (the District) what
is going to be the responsibility of
the County?"
"You no longer have the authori-
ty to create independent dis-
tricts," Attorney Shuler advised.
You can not, in my opinion, dis-
solve the District and re-create an
independent Lanark District.
You would have to have Legisla-
tive action from Tallahassee. You
could create a dependent district
but .you are going to run it.
Which also means that it is going
to become a budgetary item for
the County Commission?"
"Well ... we've been doing a lot
of budgetary items here lately--
whether it be the hospital or the
ambulance-it-doesn't matter. I
mean every time that you turn
around there is something with
(this) water district out there at
Lanark and the citizens-who
undoubtedly represent a large
percent of the people out there ...
Have you got an opinion back
from the Attorney General
(yet)?"
"No ma'am .and I would not
expect a response back from them
any sooner than the middle of
February."

Nick Yonclas
"My name is Nick Yonclas and I
am an Attorney over here in
Eastpoint and I represent a group
in Lanark called the Concerned
Citizens of Lanark Village. This
has been going on for a long, long
time, but I understand they had a
referendum in November urging
that the District merge with
Carrabelle. It has taken more
time than it should have to get to
a point where at least it is repre-
sented now that they are going to
meet with the City of Carrabelle.
I am not sure that they are on the
agenda to actually meet with the
City ... It has been almost two
months now.-and we have one
side now saying.that we have a
meeting coming up and then the
other side say ... well, no we
don't really (have any meeting).

There is a healthy skepticism on
'this part about the sincerity of
moving forward when on Nov. 7
an overwhelming number of the
people 'said please do it (merge
with Carrabelle) and there has
been a lot of foot-dragging since.
When you have an organization
that is losing on the average of
205 dollars a day for the last five
years-you would think that they
would be hustling for a solution
faster than what they are doing.
Michael has asked for an
Attorney General's opinion but I
don't know why we need to ask
another lawyer. If we .think
(Yonclas and Shuler) that you can
dissolve it; you can dissolve it.
Michael is a good one (lawyer)
and I am not have bad myself-
so I don't know that you need to
wait for the Attorney General.
We want to see some fast action."
"Mr. Yonclas," said Ms. Sanders.
"I would vote tonight to ban that
District if I knew that I had two
more votes-but I don't. But if
we do disband it we don't know
none of the details-who is going
to be in charge of all of this
money that they are spending
over there. We don't know (any-
thing) about running a Water dis-
trict. Will the State come in and
run it; can we give it to the mayor
or what? These people have got a
problem out there you know
that. They went through the sys-
tem; they have done what they
have supposed to do and they are
still not getting no answers."
"Well," offered Mr. Yonclas.
"They said that they were going
to met. If they don't then I think
that maybe it is time to ratchet it
up a notch."
"This has dragged on too long,"
offered Ms. Sanders. "It is not
right ... it is just not right. If we
did like that (as the Lanark Water
Board has done) we would be
gone in a heartbeat. That's just
the way that it is. This is serious
stuff. I would be comfortable
tonight to make a motion to dis-
band this District. But I know
with all these questions still out
there, I would not have the sup-
port."
Mr. Lockley then asked Mayor
Kelley of Carrabelle if a meeting
was in fact coming up on the
City's agenda.
"I regret to announce that it is not
on our agenda. We do not put
people on the agenda unless we
are asked. Since we were not
asked; we did not put them on the
agenda for this meeting. I would
not allow my commissioners to
discuss an issue of this intensity
and importance without it having
been noted on my public agenda
first. The people of Carrabelle
have a right to know that this is
on the agenda for discussion. We
have a public comment session
which starts out our meeting and,
of course, Mr. Armstrong and
any one else is welcome." Mayor
Kelley went on to explain that the
commission is not authorized to
act on public comments-only
on agenda's items.
Attorney Armstrong spoke again
and repeated the cooperative spir-
it of those he represents and him-
self and readdressed "the ready
to serve" issue that is of major
concern to many of the Lanark
residents. Mr. Armstrong basi-
cally presented the ready to serve
charge as usual and ordinary.
Mr. Yonclas then questioned Mr.
Armstrong's opinion on the
ready to serve issue. "Just one last
thing; the "ready to serve" charge
that was talked about-there is a
lawsuit filed last week on that,
challenging the validity of that
charge and it will be making its
way through the courts. It was
filled by another group of Lanark
Village citizens. It is not as cut
and dry as Mr. Armstrong says.
The statute has been challenged."
Mr. Yonclas summed up his case
by reiterating the doubts of his
clients in the sincerity of the
Lanark Sewer Water Board and
their Attorney Mr. Armstrong.
The discussion continued and
continued and it was the conclu-
sion of the discussion that further
discussion was necessary. So we
will most likely be discussing this
issue further ... and further in the
future.

Wash Your Hands

Humor
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
I had been in the restaurant business or been working in some type of
food service for most of my life. I have been involved in food from the
field to the dinning room table; I picked it, I packed it, I processed it, I
delivered it, I prepared it, I cooked it, I served it, I sold it you name it,
I did it. But here I was at the Florida Food Service Health and
Sanitation Training Program. The State of Florida and several other
like-minded States had come to the conclusion that a restaurant was not
a healthy place to eat primarily because of people.like me and many
others who worked in these unhealthy establishments. Not necessarily
because we were dirty, unwholesome, slovenly, derelict, illegal, dis-
eased, unhealthy or had been living under a bridge or sleeping in some-
one's hedges, but because we were lacking in food handling knowledge.
I for one considered this to be a definite step in the proper direction.
There was a very nice man conducting the lecture.,He looked normal.
He spoke ... normal. He seemed like the kind of a person that you
might have living right next door. He was dressed nicely. He was wear-
ing a tie and a suit jacket. He spoke well and had lots of funny little sto-
ries about the restaurant business and preparing and eating food. But it
soon became obvious that he considered a restaurant equivalent to a
toxic dumpsite. By the time that this man had finished his lecture I real-
ized that operating "; healthy" restaurant was an impossibility.
Raw Chicken, for example, should really not be touched. If you must
touch it, it should be boiled, first. If for some insane reason, you
touched a piece of raw chicken before you boiled it, unfortunately, you
must now be boiled. If you. do not boil yourself within a reasonable
time after touching a piece of raw chicken, you will probably die. Even
worse than that, you may be the cause of some innocent person's
death-possibly even a small-child or a dog or a cat.
Hamburger? Hamburger is a very scary material. How and why people
ever started using hamburger as a food product is a study for historians
and anthropologists. Hamburger needs its own building. If you make a
hamburger patty and then touch a piece of raw chicken, you could
spontaneous combust. The man slowed a slide program of people who
instantly exploded while standing in front of a twenty thousand dollar
stainless steel sink.
Any utensils that are used in processing any raw meat product must be
destroyed after using or sent to Nevada to be buried miles under the
ground. And the people living in Nevada must never be told that these
utensils are buried in their state otherwise it could cause a panic.
Any and all raw meat products are extremely dangerous but cooked
meat products aren't much better. Chicken salad, tuna salad, shrimp
salad etc. should be eaten simultaneously with their preparation-or
sooner. If you must let a shrimp salad or chicken salad sit in a refriger-
ator before serving it should be blast frozen first.
Mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and other condiments are perfectly safe
as long as they are kept in hermetically sealed unopened containers or
air tight packaging. If for any reason you must open any of these type
containers or packages they should be immediately discarded-or
buried in Nevada. Once again, please don't tell any of the people in
Nevada about any of this stuff.
Heating things in a restaurant is extremely problematic. Anything heat-
ed by an open fame or by convection or convention should reach an
internal temperature of 642 degrees Fahrenheit or higher and then
should be thrown away before serving.
If you must "hold" something that has been heated for any length of
time you should wear heavy Teflon gloves or have an assistant do it-
preferably an illegal immigrant.
You should have no unhealthy people working in your restaurant-that
includes hunchbacks, midgets, and the cross-eyed.
If you serve only white people in your restaurant, you should only have
white people working in your kitchen-the same goes for Blacks,
Asians or whatever.
If you serve all types and kinds of people in your restaurant without
concern for race, religion, heritage, sex, ethnic background, nationality
or political affiliation-you are just looking for trouble.
If you would like to know more about the do's and don't of the restau-
rant business, you can get a free 9,253 page booklet from the
Department of Agriculture and Consumer services. If you live in
Florida ask for Jerry. If you live anywhere else in the United States ask
for Bob-if Bob isn't there ask for Evon.
After the instruction course ended, I had to go to the men's room-the
instructor had the same problem and was at the bathroom door just
ahead of me.
He took a clean handkerchief out of his breast pocket and wrapped it
around the bathroom doorknob. Upon entering the facility he went over
to the sink turned on the hot water and washed his hands. He closed the
lever that operated the water at the sink with his elbow. After stepping
up to a urinal and doing his business he returned to the sink once again
and repeated the original procedure. He pressed the button on the hand
dryer with his elbow, then once again opened the door with his hand-
kerchief and exited the bathroom.
After listening to this man for over three hours and watching his men's
room procedure, I had one thought that wouldn't go away; how did this
man have sex?
Wow, being privy to a visual of that would be a real study in modern
day sanitation and human ingenuity. I can only imagine-but I will try
not to.

Weems Hospitalfrom Page 1
"The next item on the agenda has to do with the ambulance service,"
Mr. Colvert continued. "If you will recall, you asked me to look into
the possibility of the hospital taking over the ambulance service ... And
I have been working towards that ... The County is so long and so wide
that it needs two ambulances to cover it ... You have to have by law an
EMT and a paramedic riding in that ambulance ... We have tried to
meet with all the EMS personnel that have been working. We know that
the staffing is probably going to be the biggest problem. There is a
national shortage of paramedics, and EMTs. There is a shortage in this
area. We have a lack of benefits for these personnel. What I have
included here is salary with some salary increase for the paramedics
and the EMTs but there are no benefits. This continues the same level
of benefits as Emergystat has been providing their personnel with a
slight increase in wages.
"When you take over, will you have enough staff to go on?" asked com-
missioner Lockley.
"Right now there is a shortage of staff at Emergystat. They are not able
to run two trucks everyday. We got caught, particularly around the hol-
idays-there was only one truck running. One day last week, we only
had one truck running because of a lack of personnel. Several people
have already left Emergstat. What we are willing and ready to do is go
on a concentrated effort-trying to recruit enough personnel. It is our
goal to have continual staffing. But that is a major problem at this point
and time."
Mr. Colvert went on to explain that what he was offering to pay the
EMTs and the paramedics was in line with the wages paid in the area
but that his plan did not include any benefits.
"The County is not obligated to run a hospital," interjected Mr. Pierce,
"but we are obligated to run an ambulance service by law. We have to
have an ambulance service. Ambulances lose money and we have to
accept the fact that we have to subsidize them. It is the hospital's mnteri
tion to have the staffing of the ALS all the time in the Carrabelle area
(because of distance from hospital)."
Mr. Putnal pointed out that in the future St. Joe was going to have to be
coming forward on this ambulance and hospital issue due to the
increased population that their developments will be bringing to the
area. Ms. Sanders agreed that the salaries of 11 to 13 dollars per hour
were consistent with her research on this matter.
"It shouldn't go without notice that there are a lot of people in the
County that are being air-lifted out. That is quite expensive-about
$10,000 vs. $1000 for an ambulance run. That may be one reason that
the ambulance service has been decreasing. One of the things that we
would be working towards is to try to decrease that area by providing
good ground ambulance service."
The clerk then pointed out that $200,000 in start up money for the
ambulance will be required.
"We are starting fresh here," explained Mr. Colvert. "We will have the
cost associated with the personnel and the trucks and the fuel and
everything until money starts flowing."
"It costs about a million dollars a year to run an ambulance service,"'
stated Mr. Pierce. "It is about $80,000 dollars a month. We need capi-
tal to run for the first 90 days because it will take that long for the billing
and reimbursement to start coming back to the County. We are going
to need ... money for the start up costs for the first three months. And
there may very well be a need to come back after those first three
months if say the billing is not running properly but we just don't know
yet. We need start up for the first three months-about 80 thousand a
month-about 240 thousand dollars."
It was explained that Emergystat was losing employees because they
could not compete with the escalating salaries, wages and benefits. It
was further stated that the County also could not compete with benefits
and insurance at the moment because they had to keep'a consistent pol-
icy with all hospital employees. Mr. Pierce explained that it was the pro-
jected goal to find a means to eventually provide everyone with benefits
but at the moment it was impossible.
iMss. Gail-Dodds then informed the Board that the Hospital Advisory
Committee had been reviewing applications for the permanent position
of Hospital administrator and had received 21 applications-among
the applications was Mr. Mike Lake of DaSee notoriety.


tunity to speak," was the response from a woman in the back of the
room.
"My name is Mike ... and I work for the ambulance service but only
until the end of the month. Actually I don't know that you are going to
have a fulltime paramedic by the end of the month and I wish you the
best of luck on your recruitment because I don't know how you are
going to do something that others who are paying 15, 16 and 18 dollars
an hour plus benefits, plus high risk retirement, plus insurance are
unable to do. I just don't know how you are going to get people that
they can't. So I wish you the best df luck because obviously it looks like
we are talking to brick walls up here. We have tried to talk to you long
before this ever happened-nobody would return our phone calls. Mr.
Putnal-we tried to speak to him and he absolutely wouldn't hear at all.
Two months ago he had already decided that this hospital was going to
take us over. We talked to Mr. Colvert we told him that we were not
going to work in the hospital--e were EMS workers. We are. not
working in the hospital. We work on our truck and we work 24 hours.
The hospital crews are there for twelve and then they go home. I'm
sorry; I am not going to work even if you pay me the $13.25. I am not


Chuck Colvert


working for less than an LPN makes who can't do things that I can do.
LPNs are not trained to ... do the things that I can do. And my skills
are not going to be utilized by me for less money. I have been a para-
medic for 13 years and I am not going backwards. I'm sorry but I am
not going to be up for twenty-four hours for 11 dollars an hour. We
resigned from Emergystat because Wve are not working for these wages
anymore. And like I say I wish you the best of luck finding somebody
because nobody else can."
Mr. Colvert then spoke: "I met with everybody involved to try and get
their input. I understand their concerns. They have very valid concerns.
There is a paramedic shortage that I told you about earlier-through-
out this country and it is severe in this area. When they are working in
the hospital, I have to pay them the same wages. I can not pay two peo-
ple who are doing the very same thing two different wages. I explained
that to them at our meeting."
"I make fifteen (dollars per hour) in Wakulla," said Mike. "Marvin just
took a position in Wakulla for $17.50 an hour: You're talking about
paying a million dollars a year to run an ambulance service-a two
truck ambulance service. Wakulla County has a 1.2 million dollar
budget for three ambulances, staffed twenty-four hours a day, seven
days a week with EMTs and paramedics paying high risk retirement,
and full benefits. They even pay the insurance; I'm sorry. I don't know
about anybody else in this room but I have a son who has asthma and
his cull pay per month is $150 per month. Without insurance that
means that I have to make an extra $600 a month. And I don't know
where anyone thinks that 11 dollars per hour is decent wages for
2007-this ain't 1980 no more."

Ms. Dodds went on to state that it was the committee's recommenda-
tion to start negotiations with Mr. Chuck Colvert for the permanent
position.
A motion was then made by Commissioner Lockley that the County
takeover the ambulance service. The motion was seconded but before
the vote could be completed a group of EMT workers rose in the rear
of the room. "We have been waiting here to speak on this issue, but I
guess that it doesn't really matter because we have never had a say since
the beginning."
"We are legally required to run an ambulance service," interrupted Mr.
Pierce. "This is a way that We can meet the legal requirement. You all
will be able to speak. But we have got to get an ambulance service that
we can run and right now this is the only one that we have available. If.
you all do not want to be a part of it or have some complaints about
that-now would be a time for you to speak. But we have to run an
ambulance service whether the employees in this room are for it or not.
Sorry, we have to run an ambulance service."
"That is exactly what he was saying but no one has given us an oppor-

Mike also pointed out that two of his local EMT friends have worked
in the past in Franklin County and were never paid. "Between the two
of them somebody owes them twelve thousand dollars." '
It was then established that though what Mr. Colvert was offering was
more than what Emergystat had been paying, the workers were feed up
from many years of unsatisfactory treatment by Emergystat. "People
were leaving this company before (for years) and they are leaving now,"
Mike continued. This has been a progressive ongoing thing. And I'm
sorry; if you want to keep an ambulance service on the road 24 hours
a day, seven days a week you are going to have to join the ranks of the
other 55 counties in the State that run a county run ambulance service.
If you think that you can get people in to take our places, more power
to you. I wish you the best."
Mr. Pierce tried to explain to Mike and the other EMT workers that the
County just needed more time. "Sir, this is not a new thing to us ambu-
lance workers."
"Yes, but it is a new thing to this poor Board right here though," coun-
tered Mr. Pierce.
"Every time that we have asked any questions we have gotten a run
around," offered another EMT worker. "We have always been told that
I can't answer that or I can't speak for the County. As such we had to
take matters into our own hands. We started looking for outside
employment. You only have six fulltime employees at this moment.
Yesterday you had one truck running. Tomorrow you might not have a
truck at all. I'm going to someplace where the money is. I'm going
someplace where I can have some retirement; I'm sorry."
"Let me just interject," said another EMT worker. "I have been here
since 1983 and I make the exact same money as somebody who is green
out of the school. That is not fair. You can have your starting salary.at
$13.25, but people who have experience you need to give them more.
That is if you want to have a decent service. If you just want to have a
truck because the State requires it-then do what you got to do."
"What are the citizens here going to do?" Mike said. "Are they going
to do like they have done in the past-drive across the County line to
Wakulla and then call an ambulance? This may be the Board's first time
in having to deal with this but this is our last time in having to deal with
it. This is not something new."
"This has been a continuous thing (no matter who owns the service)
and every time we (ambulance workers) are back to square one every
time."
"Why don't you just do this?" said Mike. "I mean if you just don't want
to deal with this why don't you just openly say; We don't want to deal
with it-and that way we just move on and there will be no regrets on
our part."
"We want to deal with it and that is why we have asked our hospital
Board who are most knowledgeable about the medical situation to look
into this thing."
At this point the volume escalated and the reasonableness subsided.
Commissioner Crofton lost all patience and the debate or petition
turned into a short shouting match after which all or most of the EMT
workers turned from the podium or got up from their seats and walked
out of the auditorium.
During the debate Mr. Lockley had stated that he thought that every-
one in the ambulance service was receiving "top" pay. Shortly there-
after Mr. Dubose (Emergystat CEO) rose from his seat at the back of
the room and stated categorically that he had never said that the ambu-
lance workers for Emergystat were being paid top wages-a fact that
was more than obvious to everyone by this point in the discussion.
It does seem that the position of the EMT workers was a last hurrah, a
goodbye and a farewell to their jobs here in Franklin County and that
the position of the County, the Advisory Council and the
Administration wqs. one of resignation to the fact that the New
Franklin County Aimbulance Service when taken over by the Countn
may very well be two or three empty ambulances.

The Franklin Chronicle


A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


2 February 2007 Page 7


Phoenix Harbor from Page 1

He talked to County people to see
what the best use of that piece of
land could be and he could still
make a profit from. My first ques-
tion is in lieu of what has current-
ly been built there why does any-
body think that this little piece of
land is going to shut down that
bay?" Ms. Schoelles then turned
to the audience and requested a
response. The audience began to
rumble and then one man said
that every little bit hurt; another
person said that 58 units was too
many; another grumbled about
sewerage and the grumbling rip-
pled about the room. "Now if
this shuts down this bay two of
my boys will lose their livelihood.
We (now) have a marina that just
oystermen put in-no sports
boats or anything. They have
been putting in at that little mari-
na for years. I have a one hundred
and fifty acre (oyster) lease that
will shut down. If I didn't think
that this was a good project do
you all think that I would risk los-
ing that? We have other people in
this County who need jobs-I
have five boys. One boy had to
leave because he could find no
job here. After everything else has
been developed over there, why
all of a sudden does everybody
think that this is going to close
the bay?"

Helen Sphorer
"I'm Helen Sphorer and for the
record, I am not the developer of
this project. I am one of the cur-
rent owners of the property. My
partners and I completely support
the plan that Mr. Stripling has put
forward with Dan Garlick. We
believe that the plan that he has
put forward has many, many ben-
efits for Franklin County. To me
one of the great benefits of this is


Helen Sphorer
That the developer is giving the
County waterfront property. I
think that having a public boat
ramp with (facilities) and a park-
ing area is an incredible amenity


for the tourist, for the residents
and for the commercial fisher-
men. I think that another benefit'
of this land is that it is changing
the use of the land from commer-
cial to a lower density residential.
I think this will give an economic
boost to Franklin County right
now ... I think this will also
increase the tax base ... I am in
the real estate industry and our
industry has been very slow for
the last eighteen months and
there are many people who have
had to leave this industry and
take other jobs. I have had to lay
people off and close offices.
Approving a project like this
would send such a strong mes-
sage that there are still investors
willing to invest in this area. But I
believe that the biggest benefit to
Franklin County and all the peo-
ple is the fact that we would have
an advanced waste water treat-
ment plant-not on the bay but
back off the bay. Advanced waste
water treatment is the best protec-
tion. I know that any develop-
ment decision is very difficult for
any of you to make. I don't envy
any of your positions sitting up
there tonight but I would like to
ask for your consideration and
ask that you vote to approve this
project."

Willard Vinson-Ex-County
Commissioner
"Hey, I'm so excited! This sounds
like Christmas and the Fourth of
July all at the same time, don't it?
But it reminds me of the story
about the apple and the garden.
You know what Satan told Eve;
Go ahead, you surely won't die
... right now.
"I might not be around fifteen or
twenty years from now to say I
told you so; but some of these
young people will be. This is the
only place in the world where you
can buy and Apalachicola oyster.
People come down here because
the environment is decent, the
water is clean-they can go
swimming, fishing and they are
not afraid. Prevailing winds go
from.east to west so any pollution
that you have at this end of the
bay will wind up in that other end
of the bay-the west end of the
bay. You have got to understand
that. Some of you have been
around thirty or forty years and
you still don't understand that.
It's not just what happens now; it
is what happens later. You don't
have a current in that area that
can keep that flushed out. It will
get stagnated in there. You can
only put on a sponge so much
and pretty soon it won't absorb
any more. And that is what we
are faced with on that Island.
And this is a serious situation. I
know everybody is in favor of
this-it sounds good to me.
Sounds like pie in the sky to me.
But I can't understand you com-


missioners being willing to gam-
ble if you are the future of our
bay because a few years ago the
building was great and we had
oystermen started building. But
now building's got bad; and guess
where they are today? They are
making good money out on
Apalachicola bay because the
water is clean. I want to remind
you that what you do tonight and
what you do with this project will
have an effect on what you do on
the north side of the bay in a few


Willard Vinson


months. Because they (also).are
going to give you a great thing
and then you are between
Porter's Bar and Cat Point. Over
oh the Island you are between
East Hole and Hotel Bar. Why in
the world do you want to forfeit
something that produces and is
beneficial to the whole state to
the whole United States as well as'
Franklin County for something
that might be if so-and-so don't
happen? What is their guarantee
going to be fifteen or thirty years
from now? I'm going to ask you
to turn this project down. What
you got to do is look down deep
inside and say; I don't care what
everybody says, I'm going to have
the courage to do what's right.
I'm asking you to turn this down
- and I love every one of you be
good to your neighbors and you
will have better neighbors dog-
gone you!"

Doctor David Hiel-Florida
Dept. of Agricultural and
Consumer Services
"Thank-you for letting me speak.
I do provide information-not a'
direct recommendation to your
planning and zoning Board; to
the Oyster and Seafood Task.
Force and I will be glad to pro-
vide information to you.
"Come on; bring it to us," said
Ms. Sanders.
"You bet yah. We don't get direct-
ly involved in planning and zon-
ing issues," explained Dr. Heil


but it makes sense for us to be
advisors to you. We don't want to
make decisions. You have a tough
decision to make here. We care
about Apalachicola Bay water
quality for the sustainability and
oyster harvesting. You have the
most productive bay in the north-
ern hemisphere and you would
not want to do things that jeop-
ardize that resource. There are
certain things that directly impact
shellfish harvesting waters.
Sewage treatment is extremely
important. If there was to be a
surface water discharge proposed
by this project-which there is
not-we would be closing a lot of
shellfish waters. Marinas and
docking facilities?-any time we
have more than ten boats-we
have to close a lot of shellfish
waters. What I can tell you is that
this project-as proposed-will
not automatically close shellfish
harvesting waters. Based on
everything about this project ... it
would be okay in my opinion to
approve this project. No guaran-
tee that storm water won't impact
the bay; no guarantee that pet
waste won't impact the bay; no
guarantee that 'the sponge is full
and these (new) units will cause
the bay to close-some day we
will be faced with that (full
sponge). I can't tell you when that
is going to be. Through all;the
issues that I've heard, I ,have
made the recommendation to the
Task Force to approve this'"proj-
ect-even though I don't 'really
recommend approval or dniial.
But they did ask for my opinion
as an advisor to the Task Force
and I was glad to give it." "
"You are the one's that opera and
close it (the bay)?" askedi'Mr.
Lockley.
"I'm the one that opens and clos-
es it. If for example sh-t shows;
we close. And that is our job."
Ms. Sanders then asked Dr. Heil
for an estimation of the cost of
reclaiming the area if it were to
be devastated. He estimated the
oyster beds at approximately 80
thousand dollars per acre and he
had no estimate for the cost of
any possible damage to the grass
beds.
The discussion went on and on
and then finally it was time for
the Board to make a decision.
There was a long, very noticeable
silence. Mr. Crofton asked for a
motion several times but no
motion came forward. Islanders
in the audience began to call for
Commissioner Crofton to pass
the gavel-the unspoken under-
standing being that Mr. Crofton
being from the Island, a resident
of the plantation, certainly he
would make a motion in favor of
this PUD. Mr. Crofton refused to
pass the gavel on the grounds that
he didn't think that passing the
gavel would be fair to his fellow
commissioners.


As the silence grew and grew the
audience began to rumble and
grumble among themselves.
Finally Mr. Putnal spoke up. "I'll
tell you what, I'll make a motion.
I make the motion that because
this is a high hazard zone;
because it is right on the water
and because it has potential to
hurt that bay; and I'm an oyster-
man and I make my livelihood
out there. I make a motion that
we deny it." Then Mr. Putnal
sputtered into his shirt collar-
"and the motion will die because
of lack of a second."
"Are you denying this PUD that
we have before us?" asked Mr.
Parrish.
"I'm denying the PUD--the
whole thing-the proposal we
have before us."
"I second it," Mr. Parrish said
without hesitation.
"Okay we have a second. Is there
any discussion?"
"Yeah, I going to go along with
that motion," said Mr. Lockley.
"When I took my office I told
everybody that I wouldn't do any-
thing to hurt this bay and I just
ain't comfortable with this."
The decision was then passed
unanimously. Initially there was
shock then a slow and sporadic
applause sputtered over and
equal volume of groans and
* moans to the contrary.

Carrabelle City Council Meeting January 18,

2007



Affordable Housing


Is Nearer

Chiles group presents "neighborhood" plan

Cheryl Young, representing the developers of the Pirates Landing proj-
ect, described the latest idea to provide the start of an affordable hous-
ing initiative in Carrabelle. !

The condo project on Carrabelle harbor, due to a building density qver-
age, is working with the city to come to a compromise. Ten affordable
housing units are required to be donated, land and houses, to thegity.
At the meeting Ms. Young detailed the units:

"The Architect, Katrina Cottages LLC from Mississippi, has designed
these coastal cottage designs (shows drawing) to be modularly manu-
factured". The construction, particularly good for storm-prone aJeas,
will meet all Dade County (Miami) wind standards, and will bring a
reduction in the owners' insurance rates. It is said to be built to last
twice as long as typical wood-frame housing. The plans showed 3BR,
2BA homes with metal roofs and perimeter roofed porches to be 1000
square feet in size, to sell in the $130 $150,000 range. She emphasized
that rather than end up with a "project" look, the goal is very much to
produce a "neighborhood" look by the use of siting and landscaping.
The developer can provide financing.

In early public comment, Sharon Thoman, chair of the Lanark Water
and Sewer District, read a prepared statement on the subject of a pos-
sible merger of their system with Carrabelle's. There will be discussion
of- the merger at the February meeting, and. public meetings were
requested.

SCommissioner Parmenas mentioned that the city has a bulletin board
for notices, but Mayor Mel was not dissuaded from a list of items:

DCA reports from Tallahassee that our Comp Plan is "in compliance",
i.e. it is acceptable. Now there is a 21-day period for any objections, and
if none, the new Plan will be in effect.

John McInnis' safety program was cited, and as a result of it the City
will be rebated $3500 in insurance payments.

BoatUS magazine January edition (national) featured a cover photo and
2 pages of story on Carrabelle. This is thanks to the efforts of the
Carrabelle Chamber of Commerce, and particularly to President Sheila
Hauser-who has a background in publicity. Chamber members report,
"hundreds" of inquiries from that article.

The Big Bend Scenic Byway will be dedicated March 22, Thursday, at
5:30 p.m. at the Wakulla Springs Lodge.

Weems Hospital will take over the ambulance concession.

The' Camp Gordon Johnston fundraising spaghetti dinner to be held
Saturday, Jan. 20.

Our 3 state legislators will appear on Tuesday, Feb. 1 at the county
courthouse.

The February City Commission will be on the 6th as a result.

Administrator John McInnis noted that a representative of
Opportunity Florida would be appearing at the Chamber general meet-
.ing. The group to present a plan for affordable housing in an 8-county
region, and economic improvement ideas. Also, Waterfronts Florida is
in contact with the city to work toward a vision for what we want the
city to be when it grows up.

The deck at the airport is complete. The commission chose, from 3 bid-
ders, Kenneth Smith Architects to head the lighthouse restoration proj-
ect. They have the experience of having done a sister lighthouse land-
mark here in Florida.

FDLE is reviewing our choices to solve the trihalomethane water prob-
lem. Assistant Police Chief Joe Ham secured the city $1,000 for video
equipment through a Block Grant.

The Carrabelle Beach extension of the city sewer experienced a bid
error, so the bid will now be opened January 30 (Tuesday) at 2 p.m.

At the February meeting, Carrabelle may approve a bakery across from
the Senior Citizens Center, with an exception to R-2 Residential zon-
ing. *

The city voted to approve a controlled burn of land to prepare the John
David Patton Memorial Park. Its namesake was a Carrabelle police-
man slain in the line of duty. The property, just south of the prison, will
be a 202-acre wildlife park, to open the end of February.

Meeting ended at the early hour of 9:30 p.m.

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 =

national mourning. Watson has writ-
ten an engaging and insightful look at
American television in the Kennedy

Americans, and how the medium
emerged. Here is also a documented
yet memorable telling of the story
fading rapidly from the American
mind. Originally sold nationally for

looked part of the state and will invite public scrutiny of its

Book # Brief Title


(21) Outposts on the Gulf by William Warren Rogers.
University 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 pris-
tine barrier island, Saint George. From the earliest times, both
the island and Apalachicola have become intertwined. The
account of machinations of controversial developer William
Lee Popham is the first phase of area development, later leading
to the controversial struggles of the 1970s when environmental-
ists and seafood industries fought to determine the ecological
and economic fate of the Bay area. The Chronicle has obtained
