Lanark Sewer And Water


"The Plot Sickens"
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
Watching this situation out at
Lanark could easily turn a person
into a bomb throwing anarchist. I
have my eye constantly on the
back entrance. If I see some sus-
picious elderly person wearing a
trench coat and a felt hat pulled
down over one eye-I'm outta
dare! I'm also watching for a cer-
tainly lady's sister-in-law.
But let us all remain calm and
keep the faith while we slowly
watch the nerves and patients of
all those involved slowly unravel
right before our eyes.
As to weather progress is being
made or not you will have to read
the following and decide for
yourself.

Barbara Rohrs
"I am Barbara Rohrs field com-
missioner for Lanark Water and
Sewer District. As asked ,.. we
went into negotiations with the
City of Carrabelle concerning a
possible merger ...." Ms. Rohrs
explained that she had met with
Mr. McInnis and conducted a
tour of the Lanark facilities. Ms.
Rohrs, at some length, expressed
consternation on the part of her-
self and Ms. Thoman with
regards to the dissolution of the
Lanark Water Board. She seemed
pleased with the progress of their
negotiations and exhibited hope
that positive discussions would be
continued.

Mr. McInnis
"My name is John McInnis and I
am the City Administrator for the
City of Carrabelle. The City of
Carrabelle staffers met with com-
missioners Rohrs and a portion of


Barbara Rohrs-LVWS Board Member.


her staff informally to discuss
Lanark's current problems with
the idea in mind of both
Carrabelle and Lanark under
water Consent Orders-a joint
effort to solve both of our prob-
lems simultaneously warrants
discussion. In addition Commis-
sioner Rohrs was briefed on
Carrabelle's ability to include.
Lanark in the last phase of our
sewer project and interconnect
our respective systems and elimi-
nate Lanark's aging plant. The
financing of water system
upgrades to the Lanark system
was discussed; in particular
Carrabelle's ability to borrow the
money for upgrades and pay-off
Lanark's existing debt at approxi-
mately one half the interest rate
that Lanark currently pays.
Carrabelle has met with our con-
sulting engineers this week and
its purpose was to begin the selec-
tion process" of a water filtration
system that would cure our ,tri-
halomethane problem. Water
samples were taken and sent to a
vender to analyze and test to see


if the product will meet EPA and
state requirements. Mrs. Rohrs
agreed to have samples pulled
and tested for the same purpose
to see if possibly our final choice
could be used at Lanark to also
relieve them of their Consent
Order on their water system.
Myself and my water superinten-
dent, Mr. Mock, traveled to
Cedar Key to visit an operational
.plant built included to use the
same problems encountered by
Carrabelle and Lanark. There
exists a very strong possibility
that a system installed at Lanark
and co-shared with St. James
would eliminate two consent
orders. That means that St. James
and Lanark's water problems
could be solved by one devise. It
would also enhance cost sharing
to reduce customer costs.
Carrabelle currently owns and
operates a separate water system
known as St. James Bay. It is a
stand-alone system under our
management and maintenance
responsibilities. Lanark would
become a second stand-alone sys- *


tem with the same criteria.
Management and maintenance
responsibilities would fall under
the guise of the City Commission
of' Carrabelle. It would be an
enterprise fund where the rev-
enues are used to pay operational
and maintenance costs. A sepa-
rate budget and accounting prac-
tice procedure would be initiated
and upgrade project would be pri-
oritized hopefully with a list of
priorities agreed upon by all con-
cerned. I have contacted Air-Vac
and I'm working out what both
we and Air-Vac believe to be the
first areas to require upgrades at
Lanark. Lanark has one of the
initial Air-Vac sewer systems
installed by that company. As
you know Carrabelle uses the
Air-Vac system as well as Lanark
... A site visit will occur shortly
with a staffer to perform a hands-
on look at equipment and prob-
lems the current operator, Mr.
Wayne Conrad, is experiencing.
Only then can we begin to piece
the puzzle together ... This merg-
er could benefit our communities
and allow for planned develop-
ment without endangering the
fragile ecosystem that surrounds
us. Two statements to remember
definitely are applicable in this
process. 1) The only thing to fear
is fear itself. And that is what is
running this machine right now.
People are afraid of the negotia-
tions and the talks. 2) United we
will stand-arguing and doubt
will cause us as individual com-
munities to surely fail. That goes
from the County to the City of
Carrabelle to Lanark. If we oper-
ate individually I guarantee you
that we are not going to make it
... My recommendation-and
this is to the Commission and to
Carrabelle and to this Board is to
ask Lanark Water and Sewer

Ribs, Ribs, Chicken,

And More Ribs
At the Eastpoint VFD 6th Annual Rib Cookoff
BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE
Saturday, March 17 was the date and the Eastpoint Firehouse was the
place where all those mouth-watering odors and happy sounds were
coming from as the Eastpoint Volunteer Fire Department held its 6th
Annual Rib Cookoff. The day started a bit slow as nature chilled off the
party with low temperatures and brisk winds. People soon began show-
ing up, however, as the smell of apple dumplings and smoking ribs
spread over the countryside. The band (Jive-eye) played hot and the
wind blew cool but the food won the day. Nothing can keep a barbeque
lover away from his pulled-pork fix in the morning.
The fun started at 9:00 and lasted most of the day, which allowed bar-
beque lovers plenty of time to browse the various offerings. Besides ribs,
the cooks served up generous portions of succulent grilled .chicken,
tasty hand-pulled pork and sweet and cinnamoriy apple dumplings. For
the children there were games and rides to thrill young hearts, and there
was a car show for the older children to look at the more expensive toys.
I was particularly impressed with the Franklin County Sheriffs Dept.
entry, the Ford "Bustang". Sgt. Ryan Sandoval who teaches the
D.A.R.E. anti-drug program in Franklin County Schools drives the
beautifully appointed car. The Bright yellow vehicle is emblazoned with
the Sheriff Department and D.A.R.E. names. While it looks more like
a hot rod than a patrol car, Sgt. Sandoval says that he has used it to stop
and ticket violators. It is, however, primarily used to help support the
anti-drug education program. The car was partly designed by the
D.A.R.E. kids and it was funded by seized drug money. Franklin
County has good reason to be proud of Sgt. Sandoval's D.A.R.E. pro-
gram and its accomplishments. Franklin County can use all the pro-

The Chestnut Street

Cemetery Badman
Story Places Famous Gunslinger In Local Plot
BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE-tjloughridge@mchsi.com
I first heard the tale from Dolores Roux, local businesswoman and his-
torian. She said that a cemetery guide had told tourists that a member
of the infamous Jesse James gang was buried in the Chestnut Street
Cemetery Knowing that would be quite an interesting piece of history
if it were true, Ms. 'Roux and I decided to check the facts.
Independently, we came to the same startling conclusion ... sorry, not
a bit of truth in it! It was just another instance where having a famous
(or infamous) name can lead to false history. So far, we have been
unable to find any famous badmen in the Chestnut Street Cemetery. If
you know of any, please tell us.
The confusion stems from the name of John Younger who, with his
wife Isabella, is buried there. John Younger was born in Kentucky and
moved to Apalachicola in about 1830 where he lived until his death in
1854, but there also. lived in the 19th century a man named John
Harrison Younger who was the brother of the outlaw Thomas Coleman
(Cole) Younger (surely you remember him from all those wonderfully
corny western movies you grew up with). The Youngers were members
of the notorious Jesse James gang who terrorized the Missouri area
during the mid 19th century. The differences between John Harrison
Younger and the husband of Isabella start with the fact that the outlaw
never married. Furthermore, the outlaw John Harrison Younger was
shot by Pinkerton detectives in Osceola, Missouri on March 17, 1874,
20 years after the death of Apalachicola's resident John Younger. The
outlaw was about 23 years old at the time. His brother, Cole buried him


Joyce Estes, right, is congratulated for being named Volunteer
of the Year by Celeste Wa1, left, president of the Philaco
Woman's Club of Apalachicola.

In the local club, Joyce serves as first vice president, presiding in the
absence of the president, as well as overseeing program activities of the
club.
In 2006, as in years before, Joyce made and donated banana bread (68
loaves in 2006) for Philaco's Thanksgiving Basket contributions to the
local Meals on Wheels program. Joyce often volunteers to provide food
for Philaco Club meetings, with all profits going to the club.
She chaired the seafood, game, and beverages sections of the new
Philaco Club Cookbook, and donated many recipes from-her family's
own cookbook, which she is writing. She did the artwork for the color-
tab pages, and did many'photographs and prepared much of the art-
work by other club members for the cookbook.
Estes worked many hours as president of the Friends of the Franklin
County Library to plan, raise funds, and prepare for building a new
library. She has worked to contact and bring writers and other artists to
Friends fundraising events, then organized, coordinated, and often pro-
vided food for the events.
She has worked tirelessly as procurer and facilitator with county com-
missioners, attorneys and state agencies in acquiring land for the new
library and arts center. At no cost to the county, she obtained a 13.5 par-
cel of land valued at more.than $1 million.
A water guardian and environmentalist, Estes has worked with
Riverkeepers to help protect the Apalachicola River and promote pub-
lic understanding and appreciation of Florida's water resources. She
joined with other club members for Coastal Cleanup Day sponsored by
Riverkeepers to pick up' trash along the endangered waterways.
As a member and vice chair of the Northwest Florida Water
Management district governing board, Estes helped protect surface and
potable water and lands for future generations. She was involved with
legislation of the tri-state Florida/Alabama/Georgia Compact to pro-
tect the southern area from being desecrated by over-taking of water
from the northern areas. She served on the state water management's
historical committee to write the history of the water-management dis-
tricts.
Estes was elected Franklin County's State Committee Woman to the
Republican Party of Florida. She helped with the process of elections,
"Get out the Vote" campaigns and informed the public on issues relat-
ed to the legislative process. She served as well on the credentials com-
mittee for the state party, verifying credentials of candidates.
She served as certified lay speaker in her local church, as well as finance
chair, hospitality chair, and member of the pastor-parish committee.
She is Northwest Florida District Director for the First United
Methodist Church conference. She organized training for and helped
teach leadership courses for the certification of lay speakers, including
the organization of two retreats for adult and youth lay speakers from
across the state. She served as co-chair and chair of the prayer garden
for the Florida annual conference in Lakeland for which she designed
and converted the 1,000-square-foot facility into a quiet prayer garden
for conference attendees.
At costs to herself of over $1,000, Estes created, donated, and hung
huge banners to decorate and beautify the 2006 Southeastern Flower
Show in Atlanta. As an accomplished artist and member of arts and
conservation organizations as far away as Gadsden County and
Panama City, Estes donated art work and time in support of benevolent
projects. She chaired her area home-owners' association, was a mem-
ber of the Franklin County Citizens Advisory Task Force, a member of
the Franklin County Humane Society, and has opened her home to
numerous organizations for meetings and socials in order to bring lead-
ers and projects together.

along the road where he died so the Pinkertons couldn't collect any
reward money on his body. Later Cole Younger went back, got the body
and buried it in an unmarked grave in a local graveyard in St. Claire
County, Missouri.
I hope this takes any cloud off the name of Apalachicola's John
Younger. I don't know much about him but I'm sure he was a nice per-
son and a family man who went to church and was a friend to his neigh-
bors. If you know any more about him, I would like to hear it. It would
add to the growing true history of the cemetery.
John Harrison Younger, on the other hand, was not a nice man! The
Jesse James gang was not a band of romantic, "Robin Hood" types
who deserve any elevation above the level of the brutes they were. They
were brutal, sadistic, immoral and lawless criminals. They robbed from
the rich and the poor alike, who were lucky to escape with their lives in
the process. They did rob from the rich more often but only because it
was more profitable.
The Chestnut Street Cemetery doesn't need exciting outlaw stories to be
an important source of local history and color. Cemeteries are mirrors
of the cultures heritage, and history of a region. The world's scientific
and cultural studies community has spent many millions of dollars
studying ancient (and not so ancient) burials to learn more about our
origins and background. Hundreds of books and millions of words
have been written about the burial customs of civilizations both ancient
and modern. As a nation and as a people, we care about and respect our
dead. This is reflected in our.laws and culture.
If institutions, cultures and nations place so much importance on their
burial customs, why do we allow the neglect of an historic and once
beautiful cemetery in one of the oldest and historically most important
areas in the United States? Is it because people don't realize they have
such a treasure in their own back yard?
Since my last article on the Chestnut Street Cemetery, I have been back
many times and each time I return, I see more evidence of the depre-
dations of time, vandalism, and neglect. I hope that soon the people
who are interested in preserving history, local culture and a peaceful
place to contemplate our mortality will act to help in this important
preservation effort. Cindi Giametta, Apalachicola Planning and Grants
Manager, has applied for a grant for a preservation effort. Ms. Giametta
can be contacted at: (850) 653-8222 for more information.

Briefs
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE

Alan Pierce
Report to the Board of County
Commissioners
1 Board action to approve a
Resolution of support for apply-
ing for a Florida Boating
Improvement Program grant for
a new boat ramp and parking
area on the Ochockonee Bay, and
to construct a second boat ramp
and expand the parking area at
the Abercrombie Boat Ramp on
the Apalachicola River. This
request was approved by the
Board.
2 The Boat Ramp applications
are due at the end of April;
Letters of public support are ben-
eficial, so any commissioner who
can get any letters from business-
es or local groups who support
either ramp would be appreciat-
ed.
3 The Alligator Point Water
Resources District has asked for
permission to open-cut Alligator
Point Road in one location. The
area they want to cut is an area
that will be resurfaced when the
whole road is resurfaced with the
DOT matching grant. The
District has provided a detail for
how the cut will be patched. I rec-
ommend the District be granted
the right to open-cut contingent
upon the County Engineer
approving the method. This
request was approved.
A discussion then ensued con-
cerning utilities and others cut-
ting paved County roads without
gaining prior permission. Mr.
Crofton expressed his desire that
any unauthorized County road
damage of this type should be
accompanied by' a fine. The
Board agreed but no motion was
made.
4 The Board had agreed to hold
a public workshop on March 27
to discuss a road paving program
and to hear a presentation from
the consultants on the Seafood
Feasibility Study. Commissioner
Lockley, who wanted the work-
shop on paving has agreed to wait
on that workshop until after the
Legislature decides .'On "tax
reform. The Chairm i informed.
me.that he would be out of town
on March 27 so the Board needs
to reschedule the workshop on
the .Feasibility Study. It appears
that Thursday, April 5 at 5:00 pm
is a good time. This suggestion
was approved by the Board.
5 The Early Learning Coalition
in association with the state
Dept. of Health is asking every
county to pass a Proclamation
identifying March 28 as Child-
ren's Day in Franklin County,
and April 1 as Parents and
Children's Day in Franklin
County. This Proclamation was
approved by the Board.
6 -.Inform Board that the North-
west Florida Water Management
District has approved the
Regional Water Supply Plan for
Gulf and Franklin Counties. The
Board received copies of this plan
several months ago.
7 Inform Board that DEP cited
Franklin County for illegal fill on
Sawyer St. on St. George Island.
Part of the fill was not placed
there by the county, but was the
rubble of some house but the
county has removed it.
8 Ms. Joan Hayes, 636
Wilderness Road, has requested
the Board consider a hardship for
her. She would like a temporary
power pole on her property to
service her father who is termi-
nally ill. Normally the Planning
and Building Dept. does not
authorize a second meter on a
single residential lot. Evidently
her father is living a separate trav-
el trailer on the property. Ms.
Hayes request presented the
Board with many confusing ques-
tions. It was decided that Ms.
Hayes be contacted on the matter
by the County and that the ques-
tions and details of her situation
be satisfied without leaving the
County with 'any embarrassing
future precedents.
9 Board action to appoint Daki
Ward to serve on the Planning
and Zoning Commission. He will
take Commissioner Parrish's
seat, who was serving as a


seafood worker.
Toni Toronto, local citizen,
requested to address the Board on
this appointment. "I know Mr.
Ward and I think that he is a fine
young man but I think the board
(P&Z) is already top heavy with
land developers or real estate peo-
ple and I just wondered if the
County would not be better
served with someone who is not
so heavily involved. He (Daki
Ward) is out at the airport; his
wife works for the planning and
zoning office; is there not perhaps
a better choice?"
"He is also a life long resident of
Franklin County," defended
Commissioner Parrish. "He is
also involved in the Seafood
industry his whole life. I think
that he has the heart and the
backbone to make decisions that
are right.for Franklin County ... I
think this man has impeccable
qualities."
"Thank-you, I appreciate your
answer and that is all the com-
ment-that I wanted to know."
'"This man has been in the
Seafood industry for four or five
generations," Mr. Parrish went
on," and he truly has the heart of
what is represented by these peo-
ple ... he also communicates
daily with 'seafood workers
throughout this County-oyster-
men, shrimpers, crabbers-he is
very well...
"I am aware of all of that. You
know that I'm aware of all of
that," Ms. Toronto tried to inter-
ject but Mr.' Parrish who clearly
felt passionate on his recommen-
dation insisted. "To continue, I
have approached four or five
other boys who were born and
raised in Franklin County ... that
I thought who could fill this
potential slot on the P&Z Board
and I could get none of them to
commit. It was empty ten years
before I filled that seat; people
don't have time to take off from
work; they don't have the time to
get involved in what is going on
in your local, government and
your local planning and develop-
ment regulations ..."
Ms. Toronto tried once again to
interrupt Mr. Parrish by admit-
ting that she did understand that
it was a difficult voluntary slot to
fill but she hoped that her com-
ment was appreciated.
"I have heard that from a lot of
different people," Mr. Parrish
explained. "They think that I put
him on there because I actually
work for the guy-we work
together. We have worked togeth-
er for thirty years. That has noth-
ing to do ith this .appointment
to -hi. pjrriciilr Boird "
The Board then a.ppio'cd the
appointment.
10 The Board needs to make
decision on whether it wants to
pay out of reserves for contin-
gency $4,474.18 for a replace-
ment antenna and transmission
line that is utilized by fire depart-
ments and first responders. The
Sheriff's Office does not use the
antenna. I initially thought the
replacement antenna should be
paid for by the fire departments
out of their fire tax, but several
fire- departments 'are opposed
because they have budgeted all
their share of fire tax funds for
other items. This was deemed
necessary to the County and was
approved.
11 Inform the Board that Mr.
Dave McLain's role as Seafood
Task Force Coordinator will end
at the end of March.' According
to an email Mr. McLain sent me,
he said that he met with the
Chairman and Vice-Chairman
and that "they feel the Task Force
would be better with a new
Coordinator, so effective the end
of this month I will hand off
those responsibilities to whomev-
er they choose."
Mr. McLain stood and thanked
the Board for their cooperation in
the past and expressed his hope
that the Board would continue to
support the Seafood Task Force
in the future.
12 While the Planning and
Zoning Commission has recom-
mended changes to the
Comprehensive Plan, the.
Citizen's Advisory Committee
has also been working proposed
changes. At this point, the CAC
is proposing 3 objectives with
supporting policies aimed at cre-
ating affordable housing. The
proposed' language would be
added to the existing comp plan.
The language has been reviewed
by Mark Curenton, and me, and
briefly by Mr. Shuler, and we
have some questions but by and
large it looks, pretty good. It has
not been reviewed by either the
Planning and Zoning Commis-
sion or the newly created


Franklin County Housing
Authority. The county commis-
sion had made a commitment to'
allow for CAC changes to be pre-
sented for consideration and the
time to do that would be when
the other proposed changes are
heard by the county commission.:
I have attached the draft language'
to my report. I recommend the
Board include this proposed lan-'
guage on housing with the other
comp plan changes, and have
either the Housing Authority or
the Planning and Zoning
Commission or both make com-
ments on it. This recommenda-
tion was approved. This will also
be discussed on April 17th. You
can see these recommendations
in this issue of the Franklin
Chronicle.
13 Because of the need to pack-
age the comp plan changes and
the large scale map changes
together, the earliest the Planning
Dept. can be ready, with proper
advertising is the April 17 meet-
ing. Board action on setting a
date. This was approved.
14 Board authorization for the
Chairman'to sign the Notice to''
Proceed for construction of the
airport road. The contract has
been awarded to Ben Withers,
and the airport consulting engi-
neers recommend the Notice be
granted. This was approved.
15 Preble-Rish has negotiated a
price with C.W Roberts for the
widening and resurfacing of CR
67;. The original bid price was
$1,639,821.40. The state grant is
for $1,143,901. C.W. Roberts has
agreed to a revised price of
$1,370,145.40. The county had
budgeted $1 million for CR 67 in
the event the cost was substantial-
ly above the state grant, so with
the revised bid the county will
only need $226,224.40 of its
funds. Board action to accept the
revised bid of $1,370,145.40 for
resurfacing and widening of CR
67. This was approved.

Van W. Johnson-Solid
Waste Director
Recovered Materials Annual
Certification
FOR BOARD ACTION: I have
for the Boards approval and the
Chairman's signature, the annual
Application for Recovered
Materials Certification and
Reporting Form. We are required
by Florida Statutes to report our
recycling activities to the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection annually. During the
year 2006, the recycling program,
recycled 971 tons of solid waste,
and collected $27,510. The annu-
al cost for this certification is
$50.00.
ACTION REQUESTED: MotiQni-
authorizing the Chairman's sig-
nature on the FDEP Application
for Recovered Materials Certifi-
cation and Reporting Form and
authorizing the payment of
$50.00 for the annual fee. This
request was approved.
Public Works Maintenance Shop
FOR BOARD ACTION: During
August 2006, we solicited bids for
a new Public Works Fleet
Maintenance Facility. We provid-
ed standard,information and
asked all bidders to undertake the
task of designing and construct-
ing the building. The only bidder
to respond was Sperry &
Associates, out of Tallahassee
and they responded with a budg-
et bid of $250,000. However, the
company recently submitted a
contract price of $316,894,; to
construct the facility. The differ-
ence. in the budgeted bid price
and the actual cost to construct
the building is due to items that
we added during our preconstruc-
tion meeting. Items added were 9
inches of reinforced concrete to
support the heavy tractors,
instead.6 inches. Storage space
above the bathrooms and
upgrades to the electrical and
mechanics to operate the special-
ized lifts needed to service the
heavy equipment.
To summarize, we budgeted
$300,000, for the project and I
have funds in my Solid Waste
capital outlay budget ($18,471)
and monies from the 2006, sale of
recyclable materials ($27,510) to
make up the difference. ACTION
REQUESTED: 'Motion to
approve the contract price of
$316,894.00 from Sperry &
Associates to construct the new
maintenance shop. This request
was approved.
Aramark Correctional Services
FOR BOARD DIRECTIONS:
Aramark Correctional Services
has requested Board approval to
waive the tipping fees on food
waste brought into the landfill.
The State of Florida has contract-
ed with Aramark to provide food


* service at prisons throughout the
.;State. The company has asked
that the Board waive the $17.00
per ton disposal cost to incorpo-
rate their food waste, into our
composting program. The waste
will be coming from the Work
Camp in Apalachicola and from
the Prison in Carrabelle.
However, the Company has also
asked that the Board consider
allowing them to bring in food
waste for. other Prisons, at the
$17.00 disposal cost. The Board
by resolution prohibits out of
county waste from. being dis-
posed of at the Landfill.
ACTION REQUESTED: Board
Directions. The Board approved
the original proposition but did
not approve the importation of
waste.
Landfill Summer Hours
FOR THE BOARD'S INFOR-
MATION: Starting April 1, the

Request submitted by Walter
Armistead, applicant. This was
approved.
7 Approve (unanimous)
Consideration of a request for
Sketch Plat approval of a 10 lot
subdivision named "New River
Run Phase 4" a 10+ acre parcel
lying in Section 13, Township 7
South, Range 5 West, Carrabelle,
Franklin County, Florida.
Request submitted by GEA, mc,
agent for Jimmy Meeks, appli-
cant. This was approved.

Large Scale Land Use
Change
The following items 8, 9, 10, 11,
12 are large scale changes and
they were all scheduled for a
Public Hearing to be held on
April 17, at 3 o'clock ahead of
the regular 5 p.m. County
Commission meeting.
Item number 12 brought a large
contingent of interested citizens -
pro and con. There is no doubt
that this will be a heated debate
coming up on the 17th of April.
Bruce Millander, resident and
long time Seafood and Oyster
Dealer, spoke emotionally in
favor of the project. I feel no need
to go into the discussion at this
point since I am sure that we will
hear all sides of this issue on the
17th of April.
This is a very large and important
proposal for the community in
Eastpoint. A special designa-
tion-Urban Service Area
(USA)-was assigned to
Eastpoint in the past as a means
to stimulate development. This is
a high density designation. This
project if approved will undoubt-
edly change not only the face of
Eastpoint but more than likely
the structure of the community.
This will be big and I am sure the
discussion will be heated, pas-
sionate and very interesting.
8 Approve-Consideration of a
request to re-zone an 86 acre par-
cel lying in Section 6, Township 7
South, Range 3 West, St. James,

UF/IFAS Extension
Franklin County MOU: UF/IFAS
is currently in the process of
updating and "standardizing" all
of their Extension Program
Memorandums of Understand-

state. The major reasons for the
changes are changes to the
Florida Statutes; 'the "new"
PeopleSoft accounting software
that UF now uses; county funds
are now being handled as
"grants" and go through the UF's
Office of Sponsored Research.
Thus,'UF/IFAS and the Office of
Sponsored Research want to
update and standardize as to for-
mat all of the MOUs. I hope to
have the final draft MOU to Mr.
Schuler in the next week for his
review and to bring the MOU to
the Board at its next meeting.

RE: Budget Funding Request for
FY 2007-2008
We are currently making prepara-
tions for the Franklin County
budget for the Fiscal Year 2007-
2008. At their March 6, 2007,
meeting, the Board discussed the
changes to the budget process
being proposed by the legislature.
As a result, the Board is request-
ing that your request be submit-
ted as a zero-based budget. This
will require that you provide writ-
ten justification for each category
of your request.
One proposal before the legisla-
ture could require the county to
roll its budget back to the 2001
level. If'this proposal is adopted
by the legislature, you need to be
prepared to resubmit your budget
request at the 2001 level of fund-
ing.
Certain legislative proposals, if
adopted, may affect the county's
ability to fund the activities of
outside entities. As a result, the
Board has recommended that
you also seek funding from other
sources.
All requests for funding must be
submitted by June 1, 2007. Please
address your request to Franklin
County Clerk of Courts,
Attention Ruth Williams,
Finance Office, 33 Market Street,
Suite 203, Apalachicola 32320.

SUBJECT: Tentative Budgets for
Fiscal Year 2007-2008
Section 129.03(2), Florida
Statutes, requires certain officials
to submit to the Board 6f County
Commissioners a tentative budg-
et for their respective offices for
the ensuing fiscal year on or

- September 30, 2008) to the
Finance Office of the Clerk of
Circuit Court as early as possible,
but no later than JUNE 1, 2007.
The legislature is considering a
number of proposals which could
seriously affect budget prepara-
tion as well as the total amount of
the county budget. The Board
discussed the changes being con-
sidered by the legislature regard-
ing the county budget process at
their March 6, 2007, meeting.
Several recommendations regard-
ing budget submission for Fiscal
Year 07/08 were made. Please
prepare your budget using the fol-
lowing recommendations:
1. Submit a zero based budget
request.
2. Do not include raises in your
budget request.
3. Do not include new positions
in your budget request.
4. Do not include large capital
.outlay items in your budget
request.
Additionally, one proposal before
the legislature could require the
county to roll its budget back to
the 2001 level.
If this proposal is adopted by the
legislature, you need to be pre-
pared to resubmit your budget at
the 2001 amount.
We have included the amount of
Your 2000/2001 budget in the
space at the bottom of this
memo.
The zero-based budget request
will require that you provide writ-
ten justification for every catego-
ry of your budget request for
Fiscal Year 2007-2008. Please list
specific items to be purchased or
expenses to be paid for each line
item along with an explanation of
the necessity for those items.

Commissioners' Comments
Commissioner Sanders spoke to
the issue of the Northwest
Florida Transportation Corridor
Authority (NWFTCA) that has
been referred to in the last two
issues of the Franklin Chronicle.
The NWFTCA has a website if
you would like more information
on this subject.
Commissioner Putnal spoke to
the danger of roadside trees along
highway 98 west of Carrabelle.
He wanted trees near the high-
way to be trimmed back so that
they would not be a danger to
passing motorists. He gave the
example of a falling tree that
almost struck his wife's car.
Mr. Crofton spoke once again to
code enforcement. The commis-
sioner has had the County
Attorney write a draft ordinance.
He further requested a Public
Workshop to discuss this issue.
"Now I have to tell you, this is
not a witch hunt type of thing,"
suggested Mr. Crofton. "You can
have code enforcement start at a-
date positive-like today. From
today on we will enforce the code
through the enforcement board
or whatever. So you can't look
back and get people that did
(wrong) things in the past."
Mr. Putnal suggested that the
Carrabelle code enforcement
ordinance be consulted.
Right at this moment in Southern
Florida there have been serious
allegations dealing with this
issue. County Code enforcers
have been accused of harassment
against property owners in
"stressed" areas. Property owners
have been cited for such "infrac-
tions" ,as unsightly mailboxes,
improper yard maintenance, and
unkempt property in general.
This has given the Counties in
question the opportunity to fine
individuals and seize, condemn
and otherwise claim certain indi-
vidual's homes. These homes are,
of course, in minority areas and
poorer neighborhoods.
Land values in the south Florida
area, as has been the case here in
Franklin County, have skyrocket-
ed in recent years. And this is all.
being done in the name of "good
government" and law and order.
Of course, the lesser-off have no
money for lawyers and 'more
often than not, they are not even
able to get publicity in their
defense because most local news-
papers in the United States have
been conglomerated and are
owned and operated by the very
people behind the unsavory activ-
ities. Franklin County is unique,
for this brief moment the
Franklin Chronicle stands as an
independent purveyor of the
news that it can afford to cover-
which, of course is limited.
This practice is nothing new in
the annals of American History.
You can read about the history of
such practices by reviewing the
life and times of John Jacob
Astor, Vanderbuilt, Gould,
Carnegie and a host of others all
of whom used codes, zoning, and
local, state and federal govern-
ment influence to build their for-
tunes at the expense of the poor
and struggling. This is nothing
new. I should only add that
invariably "the road to hell is
paved by good intentions" and I
might add, well intentioned indi-
viduals.
I am sure that there will be those
who will tell us that common
sense will prevail and not to
worry. But as Mark Twain once
said; Common sense is that one
quality that everyone feels they
have enough of.
SAllen Fieffer-Concerned
Citizens of Franklin County
Mr. Fieffer was concerned with
the current property tax situation
and the Clerk of Courts recom-
mendations for "tightening -the
purse strings" in Franklin
County.
"I want to commend the County
Commissioners for taking this
step and Marcia for bringing it to
the attention (of the Board). I just
want to read into the record some
bullet points: If, in fact, we wind
up being a fiscally constrained
county that is excluded from the
cap and does not get its taxes
rolled back, the Concerned
Citizens of Franklin County
would sort of like you to take the
pledge if you would--) to cap
future spending growth to the
lesser of inflation or 3% plus pop-
ulation growth 2) cap future rev-
enue increases from all levels of
government and all sources of
revenue to the lesser of inflation


Allen Fieffer-Concerned
Citizens of Franklin County
President
or 3% of population growth. 3)
roll back local government rev-
enues and spending to fair levels
prior to the inflated budget due to
increased property evaluations 4)
establish fair appraisals of prop-
erty values and roll back to their
fair evaluation levels 5) insure
that only voters can overcome
these limitations and roll backs at
the polls 6) insure that Franklin
County is providing services
based on zero based budgeting
going forward and lastly, any
excess revenue shall be returned
to the taxpayer to be used to
reduce future tax burdens."
"Mr. Fieffer?" Mr. Lockley
called.
"Yes Sir?"
"We will handle that during the
budget time." J
"The budget time has begun,
Commissioner," advised Mr.
Fieffer.
"Let me just add something
here," said Ms. Sanders. "We
don't know how this bill is going
to be presented to the County. We
don't know what we are going to
be required to do ... We have got
a head start on it, but lets not
mess it up. Let's just see what
happens."
"I appreciate that Ms. Sander, but
I would just like to comment to
Mr. Lockley," added Mr. Fieffer
that we started the budget too late
in the past and I am hoping that
we will begin the budget process
much earlier with citizen involve-
ment this year. I'll leave it at that.
I want to invite all the commis-
sioners. to cqgle to The
Conricened Citizen-'of Franklin
County who is laying a work-
shop this Thursday at seven at the
Eastpoint fire department (March
22). Thank-you very much."

Dave McLain
Mr. McLain then came forward
with a question. "My question is
for the County Attorney." Mr.
McLain wanted to know when
the actions of the Board in rela-
tion to the recommendations
made by Don Ashley in his suit
settlement were going to be made
known to the public.
Mr. Shuler's answer was: "The
County is not going to accept that
offer."
In that case Mr. McLain
inquired, "May we know what
you are rejecting on our behalf?"
"You can get a copy from Mr.
Ashley, or I can give you a copy
after the meeting," replied Mr.
Shuler.
"So the only way that the public
will get it is if we purchase the,
space in the (local newspapers)
and publish it that way."
"If that is what you would like to
do, I will be happy to give you a
copy."
Mr. McLain expressed thenotion
that he thought that the results of
the Board's decision would be
aired publicly.
Mr. Crofton explained that such
public disclosure is only required
if the submitted settlement was
accepted by the Board. Since it
was not accepted such disclosure
is then unnecessary. The reason is
that because it was rejected it is
still in litigation, therefore there is
no reason to make any revela-
tions or disseminations of infor-
mation. "Had we taken the offer,
it would have been reported to
the citizens because there would
not have been a law suit still
pending."
"It is too important for the future
of Franklin County that we not
know clearly and not have an
opportunity to discuss what was
offered and rejected in camera -
in closet. And that is my com-
ment."
"Well, that is the reason for exec-
utive sessions-so you don't have

to tell what was done in the exec-
utive sessions," offered Mr.
Crofton.

Don Ashley
"I'm Don Ashley. I live on St.
James Island and I just want to
make three points. 1) We entered
the first challenge that the court
requires-to submit a settlement
offer. It needs to be in good faith.
It needs to be a balanced propos-
al that would abide by the law
and benefit the community. That
is what Pamela and I tried to do
with that early settlement offer. I
certainly hope that the Commis-
sion didn't misunderstand that as
some lack of commitment on our
part to the principles we believe
for a better Comp Plan and better
protection of Natural Resources
and guarantees community bene-
fits at the time large scale devel-
opment is approved. I'm just curi-
ous how the Public would have
understood the deliberations of
the Commission in these deci-
sions that affect this community's
protection of natural resources
and community benefits. I'll just
list three points that are in the set-
tlement offer. It is a matter of
public record because this was
submitted to DCA as a part of
the Public Record. Affordable
housing is clearly one of the most
important issues in this commu-
nity ... I think it is a reasonable
question of why so much devel-
opment was accrued through the
St. Joe Company without. an
assurance of ... community bene-


fits. The wetlands protection that
you had prior to 2005 was, in
effect, stronger protection than
what you adopted. And finally,
we recognize that some develop-
ment east of Franklin County
was going to be beneficial to this
community. Certainly East
Carrabelle as a beginning was a
help to the community in terms
'of economic development, pro-
vided there had been an afford-
able housing component to East
Carrabelle. We also thought that
perhaps Marina Village would
have had some benefit and that
St. Joe could use their expertise
in developing these types of pro-
posals-these types of develop-
ments. This could have benefited
jobs and the citizens of our com-
munity ... And when you look at
how much public access and tra-
ditional use is closed off by these
developments ... we believe that
there should have been more of a
public discussion .:.. These issues
were important enough for the
public to understand by and how
the commission was making its
decisions ... We want. to stand
before you not because we want
to be obstructionists to the Comp
Plan or development but because
we want to be constructive in
assuring Natural Resources are
protected and community bene-
fits are guaranteed at the time
large scale development is
approved through your FLUM
amendment process. Thank-you
for allowing me to make these
comments."


Letter To The Editor
This spring many gardeners in Florida will buy cypress mulch, not real-
izing that this mulch is cut from vital wetlands that stabilize our coasts
against storm surges and erosion.
During storms, cypress wetlands absorb floodwater like a sponge, pro-
tecting coastal communities and saving lives. They also serve as critical
habitat for migratory birds and wildlife.
State and federal government officials turn a blind eye to the fact that
many Louisiana and Florida cypress forests will never regenerate once
cut. Although legal to harvest in Florida, the logging of immature
cypress swaps is devastating wildlife habitat that will take generations
to recover, if ever.
Meanwhile, retailers use creative language to convince gardeners that
their cypress mulch is "sustainable." But don't believe what's written on
the bag. Mulch producers admit to mislabeling their product and retail-
ers don't really know the source of the mulch they sell.
The most tragic fact is that cypress mulch is, not as effective as other
mulches. The heartwood from mature, centuries-old trees is rot and ter-
mite resistant. But the cypress mulch you buy in garden retail stores
comes from young trees that don't yet have these qualities. A University
of Florida study confirmed that cypress mulch isn't any better for your
garden than pine bark or eucalyptus mulch-or even leaf litter.
Why cut a tree to grow a flower? Please don't buy cypress mulch.
Choose an alternative and save our cypress forests.

John Stosel, Give Me A

Break

"Slight of Mind"


Editorial & Commentary
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
John Stosel has developed a very interesting technique; I call it "slight
of mind". Magicians perform what they call "slight of hand" where
right before our very eyes.they are able to make things change or even
disappear. It's magic.
John Stosel does a similar trick. He takes conventional wisdom-
accepted truism-and right before our common sense or rational think-
ing process, he is able to make it all disappear or change from a matter
of importance to something that isinconsequential and more often silly
and nonsensical. He turns "up" into "down" and wrong into right. And
he does it right before our mind.
It is wonderful to watch him perform his act each week but, unfortu-
nately, I have lost interest. Whenever I see John Stosel on the tube I take
my magic wand and flip the channel. I do this in self-defense. Just like

I push myself away for the table in order to avoid getting fat; I push
myself away from John Stosel in order to avoid becoming stupid.
I have read and studied all my life in the attempt to learn to think cor-
rectly; to form proper decisions; to come to reasonable conclusions; to
leave no stone unturned. John Stosel's "slight of mind" technique is an
attempt to undermine my lifetime objective. I feel that his program is an
attempt to make me lose my mind; my rational thinking; my quest for
truth and justice; my common sense. And he does this by using the very
weapons that I have developed to establish my guidelines and proper
techniques.
I compare him to the Moonies who used the democratic principles of
Protestant Christendom to steal the churches right from under their
congregation's very principles. These poor Protestants, being good
Christians, welcomed the Moonies into their fold and then watched
their fold and its possessions all disappear.
I don't know exactly when I began to lose faith in John Stosel, but I
think it was when he tried to convince me that Mother Teresa was a
manipulative, scumbag and Michael Millikan, the junk bond criminal,
was the proper moral idol for my do-gooder aspirations.
He used a kind of P.J. O'Rouke-Adam Smith self-interest principle to
somehow prove that an old lady who spent her life living in garbage
dumps in India trying to help the poor find food and salvation was truly
an evil manipulative witch. While, on the other hand, a super-wealthy
stockbroker, who escalated the value of worthless bonds and peddled
them to lesser educated individuals-thus defrauding them, in millions
of cases, of.their entire life's savings, was somehow a paragon of moral
virtue. He ended this comparative analysis with the conclusion that
what the courts had decided was an evil man who consciously and pre-
meditatedly had swindled millions of people of millions, or maybe bil-
lions, and had been sent to prison, had actually performed an act of
social kindness. And that Mother Teresa who had spent her life in
garbage dumps and leper colonies trying to give people hope and lessen
their pain and suffering was actually contributing to the moral squalor
of the planet.
I thought John had really done a good one there.-I mean, that was
great. I knew, like when watching the magician, something tricky had
just taken place, but for the life of me, I had to admit that I didn't see
it. He had performed this feat right before my mind. I knew it was a
trick but I couldn't figure out how it was done.
I have since defeated most of Mr. Stosel's deceptive demonstrations by
simply investigating more thoroughly than he chooses to do and gath-
ering more facts, and applying them more logically and consistently in
other words doing more "home work" and thinking it through "intelli-
gently".
I really don't know what Mr. Stosel is doing; it certainly isn't journal-
ism; it definitely isn't reporting; it is the opposite of educating. It is truly
magical though; I guess you would call it "stupid-fying".



Library Happenings
BY E. ANNIE BALL
Students from the Franklin County Public Library's TIGERS Program
attended a special field trip to Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum in
Panama City and were intrigued by the numerous strange and mysteri-
ous displays. TIGERS and BEST Program participants were addition-
ally treated to an educational journey up the Apalachicola River. The
TIGERS and BEST are funded by a grant from the Gulf Coast
Workforce Board. Emphasis is on providing basic skills assistance,
heightening life skills, and developing work readiness skills for regis-
tered students 14 years and over. In addition to field trips, students
receive specialized training, career guidance counseling, and take part
in internship projects.
The Library's WITH-IT! Program students have completed a film-mak-
ing project. The creative DVD of their original Chin Babies Film, Baby
Ward, is available for showing at the Franklin County Schools and will
be viewed at Library Board meetings and other community' activities.
The first draft of the film was shown to an audience during the
Library's 2006 September Project event in Carrabelle. As with all
library-based youth programs, WITH-IT! focuses on building confi-
dence, self-esteem, and social and academic skills through a variety of
well constructed projects. Arts are explored through research, interac-
tive projects, guest speaker presentations, and group discussion.
WITH-IT! is a Florida Department of Juvenile Justice grant program
targeting students from 10-17. Additional matching funds are provid-
ed by the J. Ben Watkins Foundation.
WITH-IT!, TIGERS and BEST after school programs are held at
Library locations in Eastpoint and Carrabelle and the Apalachicola
Program Center in the New Life Center on 8th Street. TIGERS is in
its seventh year of funding, BEST is in its second, and WITH-IT! is in'
its third. The Friends of the Franklin County Public Library, Inc. con-
tinues to serve as fiscal agent for these valuable youth development
projects. For registration and other information, please call 670-5250,

Lanark Sewer And Water from Page 1

Board to 1) agree to dissolve-not merger-dissolve itself and bring its
system in with Carrabelle's. 2) Request that the Lanark Water and
Sewer Board assist the City of Carrabelle in all matters throughout
what will be a lengthy transition period. 3) That all parties concerned
in this process work for the common good of the citizens and not indi-
viduals. By Project conclusion all involved will have accomplished
something that shows government's ability to work for the people for
the common good. As of this presentation during the March City
Commission meeting there was a unanimous 5 to 0 vote by the City
Commission of Carrabelle to accept the Lanark water and sewer sys-
tem and to our management ability ... and Carrabelle does not intend
to hook its water system up with Lanark. They will remain separate
operating systems ... (when merged) it will become a part of one sys-
tem. The system that it becomes a part of will assume all the responsi-
bilities of the existing system. So I can not sit and answer question by
question, day by day in this matter. Someone has got to make a deci-
sion on whether we are going to do it or not going to do it... I have gone
as far as I can go ... We also have a closing door effect dn our ability to
get part of the work that has to be done at Lanark done on a grant ...
which means that ... work in Lanark ... 85% is paid for by the state and
15% is our responsibility and that is pretty good. When. our phase 4 is
done which is in about five months, I can never get that money back
again. This project began years 'and years ago ... there was a block of
money put in there for Lanark at that time."
Mr. Shuler then explained to the Board that a referendum must be
authorized by the Board and then it would have to be put to the voters
in Lanark to make a final decision. The non-binding referendum that
was conducted this past November does not count-a new binding ref-
erendum must be established.
The Board must first receive authorized signatures from at least 10% of
the Lanark Village property owners.
Ms. Sanders then expressed the opinion that she was ready to move for-
ward on this and Mr. Crofton offered the reservation that he did not
want to "get stuck with another.hospital".

Bill Snyder-Concerned Citizens of Lanark
"I am Bill Snyder and I am speaking on behalf of myself and the
Concerned Citizens of Lanark Village. I am here to let Ms. Rohrs know
that we are currently circulating a. petition to dissolve the Lanark
Village Water and Sewer District. We are confident that we will have
ample signatures within two weeks. As soon as Carrabelle spells out
what the merger entails we will be coming before this Board to ask for
the dissolution of the Lanark Village Water and Sewer District. We are
taking this course of action at this time because Commissioners
Thoman and Rohrs have made it known that they will not participate
in any meaningful talks with Carrabelle ... Commissioner Rohrs said
that she would never be a part of a merger if the District (LSW) had to,
be disbanded. At the March 19th meeting in Lanark Commissioner
Sullivan made a motion to disband the District and the motion died for
a lack of a second. Commissioner Rohrs then made a statement that
she was going to get grant money to extend the water system. This has
never been discussed and it has never been voted on by the Board. We
ask this Board to exercise its oversight. We desperately need someone
to step in-to see'that'the-bestiniterestsof:the citizens of Lanark:are pro-i,

tected. We would ask this ioard to block any actions that
Commissioners Rohrs and Thomrnamight take to sabotage the merger.
We ask that they not be allowed to. enter into any contract or apply for
any loans. We also ask that this Boprdprevent Thoman and Rhors from
selling any of the Districts assets."
Mr. Shuler then explained that the County Commission does not have
the statutory authority to conform to Mr. Snyder's requests. "One of
the powers that this statute grants is to enter into contracts to buy and
sell assets. We do not have the authority to override that decision."
Mr. Parrish then synopsized the situation with a question to Mr.
McInnis: "Is that what you were stating Mr. McInnis, that you are will-
ing to take over all assets and all liabilities having to do with Lanark
Water and Sewer?"
"Yes Sir." ,:
"And in order to do this you need to do it within five months before
your phase 4 runs out and you will no longer be able to get the available
funds you need to upgrade the systems over there? Is that what you are
stating?"
"Yes. Sir. And during that five months we would be getting the financ-
ing together to tell the citizens of Ianark what there actual bill is going
to be. I can't go past this point. It will take us that long to get everything
done-but (yes) it is (all) the assets and liabilities."
"What we would do," offered Mr.,Shuler, "is enter into an inner-local
agreement with the City of Carrabelle-essentially, if we do 'x' your
obligations are 'y'. If for some reason they are unable to fulfill the obli-
gation that they have made here tonight then we can go back to the City
of Carrabelle ... that would be protecting the interests of the County.
And I think that they are fully prepared to take that step."
"Can we do that within the next two weeks?" asked Mr. Parrish.
"I will be happy to work with Mr. Cox to draft an inner-local agreement
if you so authorize?"
It seemed all was settled until Mr. McInnis then stood up and directed
that the County Attorney would be required to work with the
Carrabelle City Administrator, John.McInnis, who will then work with
attorney Dan Cox. The County Attorney was not happy with that sug-
gestion but agreed to the notion that all three would work together
(Cox, McInnis and Shuler). Mr. Mclnnis acquiesced-I think?
Things seemed settled until Ms. Rohrs stepped back to the podium. She
questioned the 10% referendum vote. It was her opinion that a fifty per-
cent vote was necessary to dissolve the district. She expressed a rather
innocent curiosity about the whole thing.
Mr. Shuler then cleared her confusion between the referendum and the
actual vote to dissolve. Buftthen shelhad an additional question. "And
Commissioner Sanders ... that you said an ... 'inner-local agreement'?
Am I correct?"
"Yes," said Mr. Shuler who then went on to explain his good intentions
more elaborately and in a very kindly and paternal manner.
"That is what I wanted to know," the petite Ms. Rohrs replied in a very
sweet and unthreatening tone.
Ought oh! I have the morbid feeling that we will all be learning more.
about the ins and outs of an ''inner-local" agreement in the next
episode of the Un-Guided Light.
I know that I am not supposed to offer opinions as an "unbiased"
reporter but I hope the old folks out at Lanark village like bottled water
and are familiar with the techniques of taking a sponge bath. As Yogi
once said "It ain't over 'til it's over." And I have the very unhealthy feel-
ing that "this ain't over".

Magnificent Memorial For

Rex Partington

Donated By Rose McCoy

& gold memorial graces the Dixie Theatre. Rose McCoy made the gen-
erous contribution in memory of the Co-Founder of the Dixie Theatre.
A strong community leader and owner of M & M Monuments in
Apalachicola, Ms. McCoy was a City Commissioner when the
Partington Family came to Franklin County and purchased the Theatre
remnants in 1993. A talented craftswoman, Rose made and donated
this beautiful piece to the Partington family. It can be seen at the Dixie
Theatre and is scheduled to be installed in the coming weeks, Many
thanks to Rose McCoy for her very kind contribution in memory of the
Last Great Gentleman of the Theatre.

STATE OF FLORIDA

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
This intent to issue a permit (File No. 19-260262-001-DF) to S & P.N.B., LLC, 700 Medallion Way, Tallahassee, FL 32317,
to construct a new 4-slip multi-family docking facility that will provide docking and water access for lots 8-S, 8-N, 14, and 15
of the City of St. George Subdivision, is hereby granted unless a sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is timely filed
under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes as provided below. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are
set forth below. Upon construction, the dock will consist of a 335-foot by 4-foot access pier and a 10-foot by 20-foot terminal
platform with six additional mooring pilings to form two 8-foot by 12-foot slips and two 10-foot by 12-foot slips. The total area
of structures located over wetlands and sovereign submerged lands will be 1500 square feet. The project is located on St.
George Sound, Class II waters of the state, Prohibited Shellfish Harvesting Area, at 2528 US Highway 98, Lot 8S of the City of
St. George subdivision, Section 3, Township 8-South, Range 5-West, Longitude 84' 44' 12" West, Latitude 290 48' 26" North, in
Franklin County.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's action may petition for an administrative proceeding
(hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below
and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to redetermine final agency action on the application, the filing of a
petition for an administrative hearing may result in a modification of the permit and lease, or even a denial of the application.
Accordingly, the applicant is advised not to commence construction or other activities under this permit/lease until the deadlines
below for filing a petition for an administrative hearing, or request for an extension of time have expired.
Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the Florida Administrative Code, a person whose substantial interests are affected by the
Department's action may also request an extension of time to file a petition for an administrative hearing. The Department may,
for good cause shown, grant the request for an extension of time. Requests for extension of time must be filed with the Office
of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000,
before the applicable deadline. A timely request for extension of time shall toll the running time period for filing a petition until
the request is acted upon. If a request is filed late, the Department may still grant it upon a motion by the requesting party
showing that the failure to file a request for an extension of time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect.
In the event that a timely and sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is filed, other persons whose substantial inter-
ests will be affected by the outcome of the administrative process have the right to petition to intervene in the proceeding.
Intervention will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with rule 28-106.205
of the Florida Administrative Code.
In accordance with rules 28-106.111(2) and 62-110.106(3)(a)(4), petitions for an administrative hearing by the applicant
must be filed within 14 days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions filed by any persons other than the applicant, and other
than those entitled to written notice under section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes, must be filed within 14 days of publication
of the notice or within 14 days of such notice, regardless of the date of publication.
Under section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes, however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency
action may file a petition within 14 days of such notice, regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The fail-
