Eastpoint Water And Sewer


Rate Increase: Proposal
Presented to Board of
County Commissioners
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
Mr. George Allen petitioned the
County Commission with a pro-
posal to inform the public of var-
ious necessary options mandato-
ry to the successful future opera-
tion of the Eastpoint Water and
Sewer.
George Allen-Director
Eastpoint Water and Sewer
"My appearance here today is
two fold-to ask you questions
but first to answer questions. In
the letter I wrote to you dated


Eastpoint
Sewer-Mr.
Director


Water and
George Allen,


March 27 we were talking about
an inequity in rights across our
district. We were also talking
about a payment plan with a
rural development loan for refur-
bishing part of the system. Our


system is approximately 30 years
old and we are overdue ... Your
ordinance 99-E expanded. our
service area. We go as far east as,
approximately, Yent Bayou and
as far north as-I'm not sure-
but it would take in all the devel-
oped area of Eastpoint. The rural
development loan that is coming
along we've estimated in this let-
ter-I have stated $200,000-it is
actually more than that because
in addition to the debts and the
amortization we have to deposit,
I think it is 5% of our monthly
revenue in our renewal and
replacement fund-and we also
have the build a sinking fund. We
are going to have a shortfall to
cover this loan and we are trying
to figure out how to make our
rates equitable and pay this loan
off. In this letter, I put some
options down here and I talked
about a legislative appropriation.
We always want to try to get
grants anywhere we can ... It was
suggested to us by both our attor-
ney and the Florida Rural Water
association ... that in an effort to
establish this equitable rate across
our system that we pursue
expanding our taxing boundaries
to include all of our district. I
realize that taxing is a difficult sit-
uation and it is a difficult topic to
deal with but really my question
before you is; Would the County
Commission support an initiative
to lobby the legislature to extend
the taxing authority of' the
Eastpoint Water and Sewer
District to include the service
area-outside the existing taxing
authority boundaries? That
would be putting everybody in
our service area on a level plain."
The County attorney then went
on to explain that the Eastpoint
Water District unlike the Lanark
Water and Sewer District was
created by an act of the legisla-


Keyboards And Chorus

The 19th Season of the Ise Newell Fund for the
Performing Arts
BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE
On Sunday afternoon, March 25, R. Bedford Watkins displayed his vir-
tuosity with moving performances on the clavichord, harpsichord,
piano and both organs at Trinity Episcopal Church. The keyboard per-
formances were interspersed with performances by the Bay Area
Choral Society singing music by Bach, Brahms, Hayden, and a compo-
sition written by Bedford Watkins. Eugenia Watkins directed the
Choral numbers in her farewell performance as director of the Bay
Area Choral Society. Mr. and Mrs. Watkins have been in the thick of
musical life in Apalachicola for almost the last 20 years. They arrived
here in the summer of 1988 after Mr. Watkins' retirement from Illinois
Wesleyan School of Music where he was Professor of Piano and chair-
man of the keyboard department.
Mrs. Watkins says she has decided to retire'now and get a chance to
hear the Chorus from the audience's point of view. She and Mr.
Watkins have been the choral director and organist, respectively, at
Trinity Episcopal Church since 1988. Mr. Watkins says he plans to con-
tinue as'organist at Trinity, "until I fall off the bench."
The performances showcased music from the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th
centuries as well as a range of vocal and keyboard styles.
The evening began with a piece from the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book,
(1619 ed.) titled "Watkins Ale". A virginal is a tiny version of a harpsi-
chord but Watkins played the number on a clavichord instead. The
clavichord he used is a very soft-spoken instrument and required care-
ful listening in the spacious confines of Trinity sanctuary. Watkins
acquired the clavichord, an instrument made by Sabatio in the 1930's,'
in Paris so he would have an instrument he could play in his hotel room
without disturbing other guests. Watkins played a harpsichord next,

performing an 18th century Bach fantasy. The harpsichord he used is a
copy of a 1763 instrument made by Pascal Taskin. The copy was made
in 1981 from a harpsichord kit. Mr. Watkins also played three piano
solos and accompanied the Bay Area Choral Society on piano as well
as the 1840 Erben organ and the1968 Ruhland organ.
The Bay Area Choral Society presented numbers by Bach (Jesu Joy of
Man's Desiring), Hayden (The Heavens are Telling, from The
Creation), Mendelssohn (He Watching Over Israel), and Brahms (How
Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place). The evening of music climaxed with the
Chorus, directed by Eugenia Watkins and accompanied by R. Bedford
Watkins, singing a composition written for a 1996 Seafood Festival by
Mr. Watkins, entitled, "They That Go Down to the Sea in Ships".
The Ilse Newell Fund For the Performing Arts is sponsored by the
Apalachicola Historical Society, Laiira Moody, President, and is a non-
profit organization dedicated to the furtherance of music in the
Apalachicola area.
The next music presentation will be a return appearance of the Panama
City Pipes and Drums in a Concert in the Park on Sunday, April 15, at
4:00 p.m. in beautiful Lafayette Park at 14th St. and Ave. B in
Apalachicola. Be sure to come and feel the music that for centuries has
stirred the hearts of Scottish soldiers to the point that, during the
Second World War, the kilted fighters were known to the German
troops as, "Those ladies from Hell!"


ture. Therefore their taxing
authority is limited by those
boundaries originally set by the
Legislature. As Eastpoint ex-
panded there was no taxing
authority to cover the new
expandedcareas. Mr. Allen is ask-
ing that the County go to the
State Legislature and expand that
taxing authority to include those
expanded areas of Eastpoint that
have been included by the
County but are not included in
the original state legislation.
A motion was then made to grant
Mr. Allen's request. A discussion
followed before the vote on the
motion.
Ms. Sanders then pointed out
that when Alligator Point was
faced with the same situation, the
State Legislature required a vote
of -the Alligator Point property
owners who then voted against
the taxing expansion proposal.
"This is the way the process runs
and that is the way it needs to go.
If we have local jurisdiction that
is one thing; if it is (done) by leg-
islative action then it needs to be
done by legislative action. The
same thing happened in Alligator
Point and we (the County) didn't
get involved in that."
Mr. Lockley asked if. the
Eastpoint Water and Sewer
would be servicing the new (con-
solidated) school.
"We think.that we are," Mr. Allen
explained adding that there were
ongoing negotiations. "They are
planning for it and we have made
a commitment to that (project)."
"Is there any way that by servic-
ing the school that they (the
Eastpoint Water District) could
get some kind of a state grant or
federal grant or whatever?"

"I would feel certain that it
would," offered Mr. Shuler.
"I don't know that it would make
any difference or not," stated Mr.
Pierce. "I can't see how it would
hurt."
Mr. Allen then explained another
possible solution which involved
lowering the mileage and increas-
ing the surcharge in the outside or
expanded areas. The surcharge
would have to be increased from
25% to 40% and there would
have to be, an overall rate
increase. In this manner the State
Legislature could be avoided and
no request would be made of an
expansion of the taxing authority.
'But it was advised by our attor-
ney and, the Rural Water
Association that it would be
appropriate to go there first. But
.they both said to speak to your
County Commissioners and ask
them what their preference is. If
they support it, then-go forward.
If they don't feel comfortable
supporting it, don't spend the
time because we need to do this
work now. Our vacuum stations
are falling apart ... and we can't
afford not to, rebuild these ... I
just wanted you to know that
there was another option."
"What is the best option for the
citizens?" asked Mr. Putnal.
Mr. Allen explained the difficul-
ties in providing water and sewer
to a "struggling" community
such as Eastpoint. He said that
most people inside and in the out-
side expanded areas of the dis-
trict have water but none in the
expanded territory have sewer
along with many inside the dis-
trict also without sewer. The serv-
ice is expensive and a good many
in the Eastpoint community can

Fire Threatens


Apalachicola


The sun looked like a round, red ball struggling to shine
through a thick cloud over the western area of Franklin
County. The fire threatened Apalachicola homes.

BY SUE CRONKITE
A tense two days held Apalachicola in its grasp as smoldering hot spots
from a controlled burn west of town in the Box R Ranch section a week
ago flared up, got out of hand and headed toward town around 5 p.m.
on Good Friday.
Friday evening people along the western edge of town around the air-
port were warned they had nine minutes to gather important papers
and leave their homes. They were later told they could return to their
homes.
Apalachicola Mayor Sandy Howze said once it was known that the
threat was there, Butch Baker, director of Franklin County Emergency
Management, and his crew had activated the Emergency Operations
Center and set up the command post at the airport.
"About 1,000 acres were involved," said Mayor Howze. "They'd get the
fire out, then hot spots would flare back up. The wind kept fanning the
blazes.
"The fire was spread out a long distance, there's lots of timber down,"
said Howze. "It went as far as a couple miles past the Y on 98."
Highway 98. was closed to traffic. A sign near Ace Hardware in
Apalachicola warned people the highway was closed and directed them
to go back to Highway 65, to 20, through Hosford, Wewahitchka, and
loop back to Highway 98. The sign in St. Joe directed traffic back up
Highway 73 to Highway 20 and west. Estimates of the detour distance
and time ranged from 100 miles to three hours.
Howze said those involved in attempting to extinguish and contain the
fire included volunteer fire departments from Apalachicola, Eastpoint,
and St. George Island; the Florida Forestry Department; EOC person-
nel and volunteers, FDLE Highway Patrol, the Fish and Wildlife
Commission, Apalachicola Police and Franklin County Sheriff's office
personnel.
"Also, the Red Cross has been feeding responders since Friday, three
meals a day," Baker said at press time. "The EOC office has been acti-
vated since Friday afternoon and has been operating 24-hrs a day.
"The fire is still smoldering," Baker said Sunday afternoon. "A sprinkle
of rain isn't enough to do anything, but cooling it down will help some.
Also the rain might pick up. There are lots of trees along the highway
to be cut down so they don't fall on motorists. It will take about a day
for the Highway Department to get the trees cleared.
"In my estimation the Division of Forestry and Progress Energy have
done fantastic work," said Baker. He said while the MediaCom cable
channel was off, Channel 3 broadcasting from St. George Island was
on.
"The main cable lost its feed for awhile, but Channel 3 was on and
posted infrorimaior the whole time," said Baker. "Also power was off
briefly \%%hde Progress Energy rerouted powerin order to replace
burned poles."
Baker said the evacuation order was not official through the EOC
office. He said the fire started where underground palmetto roots were
still smoldering. "It was dry and when the wind picked up, flares start-
ed."


He said he expected the fire to
became heavier.

Welcome Back The

Manatees
BY JACKI YOUNGSTRAND
HuManatee, Inc. will be celebrating with their 16th Annual "Welcome
Back the Manatees Celebration" on April 28, 2007 at the Ft. San
Marcos in St. Marks. HuManatee began in 1986 and became incorpo-
rated on July 14, 1990. Volunteers inform the public about Wakulla
County's migrating herd of Florida manatees. The volunteers work
with government agencies and communicate with civic groups, schools
and business to accomplish their goals. HuManatee volunteers encour-
age people to become aware of the manatee's plight and its right to exist
freely, without human interference. Become a member of HuManatee,
a non-profit organization, and help the volunteers protect the manatees
of Wakulla County and surrounding areas. Your support will provide
funds to operate the Wakulla County based manatee protection and
awareness efforts.
We must learn to enjoy their freedom and uniqueness as passive
observers. Interaction with the manatees poses another threat to their
survival. To feed, touch or swim with them creates trust and depend-
ence; it will change their natural behavior. It is illegal to harass mana-
tees. When boating, observe.the Caution Manatee Zone signs, go slow-
ly and look out for the dark snouts that surface about every five min-
utes. Wearing polarized sunglasses help you see the camouflaged man-
atee under water. Turn your motor off or pass the manatees slowly
when you see them. This will give them time to move to a safer place.
Keep your powerboat in the channel. The manatees usually stay along
the shoreline in shallow water while feeding and resting. Manatees will
dive to deeper water if given enough time. If you are near the water,
please do not discard trash or fishing line into the water. Manatees are
often injured, sometimes mortally, by ingesting trash trapped in the
plants they eat.
Call the Fish and Wildlife Commission (850) 922-4330 or the Marine
Patrol on your VHF to report activities endangering manatees or other
boaters. Call the FWC or HuManatee (850) 925-6412 if you see a man-
atee that is injured, suffering or dead. If injured, specify the location of
the manatee, type of injury, your name and a call back number.
Attempt to stay near the manatee until help can arrive. Do not try to
rescue the injured manatee yourself. To report any sightings call
HuManatee (850) 925-6412, include location and how many you spot.
For more information you can check out www.myfwc.com.

tion please contact us at the address below. To join and help us support
our efforts annual memberships are $15 per individual, $20 per family,

Alan Pierce
Report to the Board of County
Commissioners

April 3, 2007
1 Boardaction on a Resolution
of Support for another Florida
Boating Improvement Grant for
improvements to the Lombardi
Property in the Two Mile area.
The Lombardi Property will be
recommended as a landing site in
the Seafood Feasibility Study.
The Board has previously voted
support for two grant applica-
tions for recreational boat ramp
improvements at the Ochlocknee
Bridge and at the Abercrombie
Boat Ramp. The Lombardi pro-
posal would be for a commercial
boat ramp. The application must
move forward because of the
grant deadline even though the
county does not have the
Lombardi property under con-
trol. If the county and Lombardi
do not reach an agreement before
the grant application, deadline of
April 25 then the grant will not be
submitted. This resolution was
approved.
2 Board action to have the
County Attorney review a draft; a
Development Agreement bet-
ween the owners of the Lombardi
Property and the county. This
was approved.
3 The developers of Heron
Walk, a 9 lot subdivision on
Alligator Point, are constructing
two new roads intersecting with
Alligator Point Road. A neighbor
across the street from the pro-
posed road continues to park a
semi-trailer and a catamaran in
the way of the new road. It is my
opinion that the Board creates a
No Parking area so that traffic
from the new road will clear line
of sight turning onto Alligator
Point Road. I recommend that
the Board turn the issue over to
the County Engineer for his rec-
ommendation. This was app-
roved.


Work Summary

acknowledged the problem and


was seeking a suitable location or

nesses to accomplish this goal.
5 Several years ago a previous
Sheriff placed a substation on St.
George Island with the approval
of the Board. The agreement
then was that the Board would
own the land but lease it.to the
Sheriff, and the Sheriff would
own the building. Sheriff Mock
has written the Board a letter
offering to turn the substation
over to the Board, if the Board
will in turn lease the building and
land back to the, St. George
Island Lighthouse Association
for use as a museum and visitor
center. Read letter from Sheriff.
This was approved.
6 Board action on Evaluation

DCA has reviewed the draft EAR
and believes it to be sufficient.
This was approved:
7 Inform Board that the
Committee for Ranking Propos-
als for the $200,000 OTTED
funded Countywide Utilities

Board action to enter negotia-
tions with Meridian. This was
approved.
8 Mr. Dave McClain and
Lampi/Herbert Consultants have
briefed Ms. Diane Scholtz,
Governor's Office, on the draft
results of the Seafood Feasibility
Study. Ms. Scholtz was impressed
and advised the consultants that
if the county wanted to seek addi-
tional funding to please let her
know and she would attempt to
make REDI money available.
REDI stands for Rural Economic
Development Initiative. Board
action to request REDI money.
This was approved.
9 The Bruno Klob site was also
discussed and the Board was
reminded of the importance of
this site in addition to any consid-
erations with regards to the
Lombardi site for future water
access. The Board was reminded
that the Kolb site is being used
presently'and this fact should be
remembered and appreciated.

Hubert Chipman-Franklin
County Road Department
Report to Board of County
Commissioners
We would like to inform the
board that as requested at the last
board meeting held on March 20,
2007 we were able to complete
the following; remove sand from
shoulders of road on Alligator
Point and Bald Point, Removed
rock from Gulf Shores Blvd in
Alligator Point for turtle control
and tore down and removed the
old airport shop in Apalachicola.


* reduce total allowable catch
(TAC) to 6.5 million pounds
(mp)-3.315 mp commercial and
3.185 mp recreational (effective
May 2, 2007);
* establish in the shrimp fishery a
red snapper bycatch mortality
reduction goal of 50% of the
2001-2003 average (effective May
2, 2007).
Since the interim rule does 'not
become effective until May 2,
2007, during the first 11 days of
the 2007 recreational season, cap-
tain and crew may retain a bag
limit, and the four-fish bag limit
will apply. NOAA Fisheries
Service will adjust the 2007 com-
mercial red snapper quota after
the 2007 TAC becomes effective
May 2, 2007, but no later than
July 1, 2007.
A discussion then ensued with
regards to the 13 inch new
requirement for the commercial
fishermen. It was suggested that
this change may have occurred to
counteract needless waste. Mr.
Mahan mentions that at these
talks a consideration of the via-


ability of size limits has been on
the agenda. The chief suggestion
being that a certain number of
fish be allowed without any size
limit being imposed; the point
being that most fish that are
returned, if coming from any
depth, simply die anyway.
Department of Commerce/
NOAA Update: Commerce
Secretary Gutierrez announced
on March 1 proposed federal leg-
islation to promote safe and sus-
tainable marine aquaculture in
federal offshore waters. The Bill
is called the National Offshore
Aquaculture Act of 2007.
Reasons given for the proposed
legislation include: Aquaculture
is currently a $1 billion industry;
Because. we don't currently
encourage aquaculture in federal
waters, we're letting technology,
investments and jobs go overseas;
With an $8 billion seafood trade
deficit, the US is largely depen-
dant on farmed seafood imported
from other nations; Last year the
UN reported that half of the
global seafood production came
from aquaculture; and the US
only accounts for one percent of
the global $70 billion per year
aquaculture industry.
This aquaculture information
and proposal stimulated com-
ment from the Board. Mr. Putnal
wanted more information about
the caging procedures of this
technology.
"How does this affect the shrimp
trawlers out there? Is there a cer-
tain area; is it wide open? I see a
lot of conflicts going on out
there," said Mr. Parrish.
"That a good question?" respond-
ed Mr. Mahan. "That is why I,
have been putting this on every-
one radar screen. Everyone
seems to be pushing it (off-shore
aquaculture) but there are a lot of
questions like you just asked. But
they don't seem to be interestedat
this point."
"I'm not saying that it is a bad
idea; I'm just saying that there
needs to be some guidelines or a'
certain area set aside that would
not interrupt other fisheries or
something like that. You don't
want to put this in the middle of
shrimping grounds off-shore of
Apalachicola. You will just be
putting new people into business
and putting other people out of
business ... What are our options
here?"
"At this point I guess we just have
to keep an eye on it and see
where it is going," said Mr.
Mahan.
"We don't need to be re-active;
we need to be pro-active on this.
We need to let them know what
our concerns are. Please keep on
top of this and keep us informed
on what their ideas are." 'M''

Dan Rothwell--County
Engineer
"The first thing that I would like
to have Board action on is that I
would like to request permission
to make application to the Small
County Outreach Program to
research two roads-one is Gulf
Beach Drive and the other one is
Thomason Airport Dr. In
Carrabelle. These two roads fit
their criteria very closely. Later
on ... I will be asking to do the
same thing with Bluff Rd. up to
U.S. 98 but that is a different pro-
gram. I would like to have per-
mission to do these applications
for these grants." This request
was approved.
"We are still working on the con-
struction plans for the mainte-
nance shop. We are real close on
time to get this thing permitted
with the State. The site is prepped
and ready ... The St. George
dune-walkovers-the last walk-
overs are being constructed now.
All the others have been done ... I
met last week with the Northwest
Florida Water Management
District and our consultant on
Sawyer St. and our storm water
plan."
Mayor Kelly of Carrabelle then
spoke to the Board.
"In April 2006, I sent a letter to
the (County) Commission asking
that the parking facility area at
the Timber. Island Boat Ramp be
reviewed ... There will be a new
restaurant opening this month ...
at the former Tiki Hut ... so that
will add to the stress on the park-
ing there. I am hoping that the
Commission can encourage the
completion of this parking proj-
ect. That parking facility is so
'poor there ... So if there is any,
thing that can.be done before the
1st of May I suspect that would
be very helpful. Also I had a
question about something ... I
was interested to see that the
Timber Island Boat Ramp was
not listed (in EAR-Coinp
Plan)."
Mr. Pierce informed Mayor Kelly
that she was correct -and the
absence of that listing had been
an oversight on the part of-the
County and that it would be cor-
rected in the future.
,Mr. Rothwell said that he was
looking into and working on the
Timber Island Boat Project that
Mayor Kelly had mentioned.
A discussion then followed
regarding the problems with the
congested parking at the County
Boat *-Ramp.. Mayor, Kelly'
expressed regret that things had
been done before Whertime .as,
Mayor of Carrabelle but regard-
less a future solution had to be
found.
Mr.-Lockleythen inquired about
the new school road and its prob-
lems. "I am trying to do a layout
that would minimize wetland
impact and there by minimize the
cost. We have a couple of
options." One included talks with
Gramacy and working out some-
thing that might be beneficial to
both parties.

Butch Baker-Emergency
Management
"I have two items that need a sig-
nature; one is the acceptance of
the Federal moneys that helps
fund my office. It has already
been voted into the budget. And
another is a subcontract agree-
ment." The contract deals with
ICS training and an individual
who supplies that training. The
money to pay this individual
comes from a grant. Mr. Baker's
requests were approved. Mr.
Baker also informed the Board
that the emergency incidence
training program was progressing
positively.


Public Hearing-Evaluation .
Appraisal Report
County Resolution: "Where as
on August 28, 2006 the Franklin
County Board of County
Commissioners adopted and
EAR report; whereas Franklin
County Board of County
Commissioners transmitted this
EAR Report to the Florida
department of Community
Affairs; and whereas on October
30, 2006 the Florida Department
of Community Affairs after
reviewing the local EAR report
issued a letter stating that two
issues needed to be further
addressed in order to further
assure status of the report to be
sufficient, and whereas Franklin
County should have a complete
revision of the EAR to further
address those two issues now it
'therefore be resolved that the
Board of the Franklin County
Commissioners adopt the revised
EAR report by resolution."
This resolution drew no com-
ments from the public and was
approved by the Board.

Representative Loranne
Ausley-Whole Child
Initiative
"It is always good to be here in
the real part of the world-not
that Tallahassee isn't the real
world-but this time of the year
it gets kind of crazy over there. I
am here really outside of the leg-
islative context in my job as a
community .volunteer for chil-
dren's issues ... I have been chair


Whole Child-Rep. Loranne
Ausley

in Tallahassee of Whole Child-
Leon for the past three years
which has been a joint initiative
of the Big Bend and the Lawton
Childs Foundation. It is an initia-
tive that has gotten our communi-
ty to really focus our entire com-
munity around the needs of our
youngest children and their fami-
lies WVe re hoping to take this
initiaL\e outside ot Leon' county
to'the surrounding counties and
looking to partner with Franklin
County. Let me tell you a little
about it.,The mission of Whole
Child is to imagine a community
where we all work together to
make children thrive. The con-
cept is that when you focus on
children you can't just focus on
education ... you also have to
make sure that they have med-
ical, a home and a place to live,
economic stability, a spiritual
foundation ... all of those com-
ponents are critical to making
sure that the children have what
they need to succeed. Ninety per-
cent of brain development takes
place before the age of six. So we
are really working in the
Legislature as well as in the com-
munity to make sure that we are
focusing on those earliest years.
In Leon County we have created
what we call the Whole Child
Connection ... which is a com-
puter based tool that links the
child directly to community
based services."
Ms. Ausley went on to explain
the goals and aspirations of this
new initiative and to ask for the

support in this effort by Franklin
r County. Their goal is to create a
community network of organiza-
tions, volunteers, businesses,
community leaders, etc. who will
work together to form local chap-
ters in their communities to pro-
mote children's 'welfare. They
focus on at-risk families but the
program is designed to help all
children in the communities .and
to coordinate community servic-
es with individuals. There would
be a minimal cost of approxi-
mately.$1000 to get the technolo-
gy and tap into the advisory net-
work and get the training and
assistance. The group has a web-
site where more information on
this organization can be gained
www.wholechildproject.org. You
can also contact Loranne@aus-
ley.net. Or Ed Feaver 850/413-
0714.
The Board approved a motion to
support this Whole Child Project
locally.

Commissioners' and Public
Comments
The Board discussed public com-
ments. They agreed that general
comments were acceptable but
should be limited to 3 minutes.
"These meeting keep going on,
and on, and on and on. We could
stay here for another hour and a
half ... We need to address this.
We have a lot of things here that
we address that we should not
have to address and it is just
going on and on and on and on
and it is repetitive," offered Mr.
Parrish.
Mr. Pierce recommended that
people who wish to make com-:
ments be limited to 3 minutes.
Items on the Public Agenda will,
of course, be subject to extended
discussion but personal individ-
ual comments would be limited
to 3 minutes.
A motion was passed to put Mr.
Pierce in charge of judging what
will be acceptable to be brought
before the commission and how
it should be categorized.
Because this motion was retroac-
tive Mr. Sherman Thomas was
allowed to speak on this occasion
without a time limit advised Mr.
Crofton.

Sherman Thomas-
Apalachicola
Sherman Thomas of Apalach-
icola then addressed the Board
ddicernig new jobs 'and jail
overcrowding. "I was here last
month when we were talking
about the overcrowding at the jail
and the jobs here locally. The
sheriff needed some money for.
the overcrowding at the jail and.
the Commission didn't have any
money for him. So I have some
ideas and suggestions ... if you
look closely and seriously at over-
hauling your jurisprudence
process in the County ... you will
find much needed dollars ,.. We
need to institute an early release
(program) for people who have
committed misdemeanors and
small crimes-especially our
local people ... I think that would
help instead of just continually.
running them through the
process of bringing them to the
Court House and running them


back to the jail. I think that would
help with some of the jail over-
crowding." Mr. Thomas went on
to suggest that because of the
lack of jobs in the local commu-
nity many young people conse-
quently end up in jail. He suggest-
ed that the community didn't
have sufficient activities for
young people to participate in
and again the eventual conse-
quence was jail or prison. "You
can forget about the DARE
Program ... we don't have in this
community a swimming pool or
a place where these kids can go
and enjoy themselves where they
can be together and perhaps keep
their minds offof drugs.and keep
their minds on school and
become productive'citizens. I sug-
gested getting rid of the DARE
Program ... That program is an
oxymoron as far as staying away
from drugs because the majority
of people in our prison system
are locked up because of drugs.
There is a problem'here that I
think that we can solve but we
have got to be serious about going
about it.-If we take care of our
children then the problems will
take care of themselves ... but
many, many years.ago the city
government and the county gov-
ernment and the state got
involved in a nefarious project
which killed local jobs here in our
city and our county. And that is
the use of slave labor through the
Industrial, Prison Complex ... If
we got away from that...' I think
we would .have. a better county
and a better comnfiunity and less
people in our prison system." Mr.
Thomas-then suggested that the
local police,be limited in the use
of the county vehicles to on-duty
activities. Mr. 'Thomas went on to
suggest that too much money was.
being spent locally on "things"
(parks, new schools, buildings
etc.) as opposed to being invested
in the children themselves. In
general he suggested that spend-
ing along with charity should
begin at home and that the local
people and their children should
be a first priority.

Historic

Lighthouse

St. George Island :

Sheriff Mike Mock
Dear Chairman Crofton:
The Franklin County Sheriff's
Office placed a small portable
building on St. George Island
several years ago to use as a sub-
station. In an agreement with the
County Commission, the struc-
ture was placed on county prop-
erty and the Sheriff's Office took
care of the operation and mainte-
nance of the building.
Recently, I have been approached
by representatives of the St.
George Lighthouse Associations,
Inc. about whether I would con-
sider allowing them to use most
of the building while I retained
the use of one room. I believe

their goal of a museum and visi-
tor center is worthwhile, and I
support their efforts. However,
since the land is still owned by
the county, there needs to be a
joint agreement between the
Sheriff's Office and the County
Commission on who may use the
building and land.
To this end, I am willing to
donate the substation to the
county if the County Comm-
ission will then lease the land and
the substation to the Association
also. I am donating the substation
for use as a museum and visitor
center only. My donation is not
intended to dllow the Association
to sublease the building to other
groups for other purposes. I
would expect the County


Commission would impose the
same restrictions.
It have no objections to the coun-
ty making improvements or
expansions to the building to take
care of the space needed for the
St. George Island Lighthouse
Museum and Visitors Center. It is
my understanding that the county
will seek funds from the TDC for
improvements that the
Association will need in order to
operate the museum and visitor
Center.
I hope you will look favorably
upon this request, and will act on
it promptly.
The Board approved the Sheriff's
above suggestion.


Letter To The Editor
Friends,
In the event you did not know it, Will Kendrick is against the Heritage
Tag purposed to be added to the 100 or so specialty tags already on the
state list of tags. Below you will see a, synopsis of what I have tried to
do in the past several days.
After many days of attempting to talk with Will Kendrick, he finally
returned my call today. He stated'that he was against the Heritage Tag,
along with all other specialty tags. I suggested that since he feels this
way he should introduce a bill to eliminate all specialty tags rather than
single out one tag to be against.
He also said that he wished he had been at-the meeting when/the
Republican Committee approved the Resolution supporting the adop-
tion of the Heritage Tag, as there were better things that'they could
have looked into. I suggested, he might be right, perhaps informing the
Franklin County voters, who work so, diligently for their money, that
the county not only gave themselves a raise, but cut the number 6f
hours per week that they must work for that raise.
I suggested that Mr. Kendrick opposition to the Heritage Tag, (when he
did not oppose all other specialty tags), would hurt his chances of win-
ning the Franklin County School Superintendent position in 2008.
When seafood workers, hunters, and voters of Franklin County learn.
where he stands on this issue, they will not be happy.
This letter is for all of us Floridians who have pride in our heritage.
Please pass this along to your list of Franklin County voters.
Thanks,
Jim Cobb
St. George Island, FL



Letter To The Editor
Between now and the end of this year's Florida Legislature,
Representative Will Kendrick, Chair of The House State Lands and
Conservation Committee, has the power to force the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to adopt Full
Constitutional Due Process. Despite U.S. and Florida, Constitutional
mandates that Due Process and Equal Protection of the Law apply to
all American Citizens, the FWC have refused to adopt these American
principles.
In 1999, the Florida Legislature made a horrendous Constitutional
blunder by assuming that the FWC would create and codify Due
Process Procedures on its own. In recent years, the FWC have not only
refused to create Constitutional Due Process, they have acquired even
more unchecked power, essentially approaching complete autonomy in
Violation of the Separation of Powers Doctrine of the United States of
America. In other words, the FWC have almost no checks and bal-
ances.
According to a recent decision by the 1st DCA, the.FWC's rules can
not be reviewed by the Legislature or questioned by the Courts. (No
matter how irrational). Furthermore, the Executive Branch can only
hire or-remove the FWC's seven appointed Commissioners.
On February 2nd, the Chief Judge of the 1st DCA, Edward Browning,
called the FWC an "Imperious" form of government and warned that
the "mischief" coming from the FWC threatens all of us in the future.
Way back in 1998, when the FWC was being formed, the Legislature
discussed the only way to check the power of the FWC was through
their budget.
There is one last Legislative hope for the future though, and that'hope
is in the Hands of Representative Will Kendrick. Representative
Kendrick has control of the FWC's purse strings. Nothing will cause
an out of control FWC to snap to attention and salute our flag quicker
than taking away their funding. With the FWC mismanaging our
resources, hurting our economy, and lording over our citizens, they are
desperately in need of a "spanking." .NOW is the, time for
Representative Kendrick to follow his sworn duty to uphold the consti-
tutions of the United States and of Florida. Citizens lives and the
direction our Country is headed is now solely in the hands of our elect-
ed lawmaker. The electorate placed their faith in Representative
Kendrick by electing him to uphold our constitutionally guaranteed
freedoms, and now it's time he earned that faith by forcing the FWC to


?Iesidential


submit to our Constitution through the budget process.
We apologize for the.stressful position that our Constitution has placed
our Representative in, and we want him to know that we fully appreci-
ate his previous stances supporting the Environment, People and
Economy. It certainly is not the fault of Representative Kendrick that
he inherited purse string control over accumulative form of bad govern-
ment, but with power, comes a heavy responsibility. Representative
Kendrick has ALWAYS been a "champion" of the Environment,
People and Economy, but, this being his last term; we need him to be a
"champion" one last time. If Representative Kendrick forces the FWC
to create full constitutional due process,.his "Champion" legacy will be
set in stone... Not only in the Panhandle region of Florida, but
throughout the entire state.

Giant White Rabbit Seen

Near Dixie Theatre

"Harvey" to be presented by Panhandle Players
BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE.
Forget about Jimmie Stewart. In Apalachicola, Hank Koslowsky plays
Elwood P. Dowd, a 47-year-old gentleman from a well-placed family
who seems bent on embarrassing his sister, Veta Louise Simmons,
(played by Margy Oehlert) by introducing an imaginary, six foot tall,
white rabbit to her guests at a society party. Veta decides, right then, to
Srid herself of her embarrassing brother by having him committed to a
sanitarium. Veta, however, is mistakenly committed when she tries to
explain the giant white.rabbit to young Dr. Sanderson (Joe Shields).
When the director of the sanitarium, Dr. William R. Chumley (Tom
Loughridge) discovers, to his horror, that the wrong patient has gone to
-hydrotherapy, he sets out to find the real psychopath and bring him
back to the hospital.
When the mild mannered Elwood shows up at the sanitarium looking
for his friend, Harvey (played by himself), we learn that his delusion
has. had a strange influence on others as well, even helping romance
blossom in unexpected places.
The play is ably directed by Panhandle Players veteran, Pam Vest who
is assisted by Forgotten Coast TV's own, Royce Rolstad, III.
Stephaney Provenzano, in her first role with the Panhandle Players,
plays Myrtle Mae Simmons. The maid is played by Jan Sheddan;
Society matron, Mrs. Ethel Chauvenet by Janyce Loughridge; Miss
Kelly, the nurse, by Megan Lamb; Wilson by Jeff Ilardi, Betty Chumley
by Elaine Kozlowsky, Judge Omar Gaffney by Patrick Leach, and the
cabbie, E. J. Lofgren by Royce Rolstad, III.
The Pulitzer Prize winning comedy, Harvey, written by Mary Chase,
was first produced in New York at the Forty-Eighth Street Theatre on
November 1, 1944. Since that time it has been a favorite with amateur
and professional theatre groups. It was made into an academy award
nominated movie starring Jimmie Stewart in 1950 and is still often seen
on TV movie stations. It is the kind of feel-good story that appeals to
all ages and people from all walks of life. Comedy, philosophy,
romance, and wonderment blend into an imaginative fantasy that will
keep you glued to your seats for the three acts of Harvey. To quote
Elwood P. Dowd, "Well, I've wrestled.with reality for 35 years, doctor,
and I'm happy to say I finally won out over it."
Harvey will be presented at the Dixie Theatre on April 19th, 20th, and
21st at 8 p.m. and on Sunday, April 22nd at 3 p.m.
Tickets are available from any cast member, at the box office, at the
Blue Store on Ave "E" or at the Avenue E store.
Ticket prices are: Adults-$12, Students-$-10, Children 12 and
under-$5. If you have further questions or wish to reserve tickets you
may call (850) 670-8261.

Concerned Citizens Claim

Lack Of Representation

Concerned Citizens of Franklin County hold first meeting
to discuss property taxes and other issues
BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE
On Thursday, March 22, The Concerned Citizens of Franklin County
(CCFC) held their first public workshop at 7:00 p.m. in the Eastpoint
Firehouse. The meeting was facilitated by Gail Riegelmayer and
presided over by the CCFC president, Allan Feifer, who also represents
the Alligator Point region. Other areas of Franklin County were repre-
sented by: Paul Riegelmayer, treasurer, of St. George Island, Richard
Harper of St. George Island, Charlie Nichols of Eastpoint, and
Dolores Roux of Apalachicola. Carrabelle and Lanark Village are, for
now, unrepresented.
Ms: Riegelmayer stated, in opening comments that "The CCFC is an
organization that stands for more open, more portable, more efficient,
and more.responsible county government. We want to be a grass-roots,
countywide organization."
Following the opening statements, Mr. Feifer addressed the seventy or
so attendees with the basic reasons for the CCFC's existence and an
overview of what they intend to accomplish. What follows is an edit-
ed-for-space version of his speech. (The full text of his talk is available
from either Concerned Citizens at (850) 653-5571 or from your reporter
at tjloughridge@mchsi.com or telephone (850) 927-2899.)
"Good evening. I am Allan Feifer, President of Concerned Citizens of
Franklin County, Inc. I want to welcome everyone here tonight to this
historic first workshop of the CCFC. It is the first time in a long, time
that Franklin County taxpayers have gotten together and collectively
said "I'm not going to take it anymore." The policies of free spending
counties like Franklin are a slap in the face to a representative democ-
racy. CCFC believes there have been decades of waste, inefficiency and
a "public be dammed" attitude that must end. During one of the budg-
et workshop's last year an employee of the Tax Collector's office and
also the daughter of one of our Commissioners, screamed at citizens
who were complaining about their taxes and said 'Just pay your taxes
or get out, we.don't need you!' Not one commissioner chastised her or
asked her to be quiet. Fundamentally, that's why we're here tonight.
Back in 1977, what attracted me were the quiet open spaces and friend-
ly people I met. Franklin County citizens enjoyed good fishing, afford-
able housing, clean air and water, plenty of places to put a boat in, an
abundance of natural beauty and, a slow pace of lifeperfect for raising
children.
Fast forward to today and look around you. Things have changed and
definitely not for the better. Housing is unaffordable. A working water-
front is getting harder to find. Your right to-hunt where you always have
is threatened. Our schools don't graduate enough young people ready
to take their place in life. There are too few good jobs.
Now, I want you to visualize what things will be like in 10 to 20 years.
Few'of you will have a place in the "New" Franklin County which will
cater to high rollers, jet skiers and retirees. That's wrong and we must
hold our political leaders responsible.
For those of you who have, deep roots here I want to make the state-
- ment that no matter what the County leadership says about it being
nobody's fault, we can't let them off the hook because it is their fault.
Decisions made over the years concerning land use, zoning, and eco-
nomic development have guaranteed the problems we have today to
include: escalating land values, lack of affordable housing, few good
job opportunities and reduced access to our bays and rivers. Over time,
quietly, but deliberately, Franklin County has changed into what it is
today. And if you think we. can't wind up looking like Destin or
Panama City think again. Through the use of PUD's (which amount to
spot zoning), high-rise condos, increasing; densities; andimore.tract
development, (these changes) are not-impossible. They're: trying to
revise the Comp Plan right now to allow for higher densities.
How did this happen? Simple. There was and is a great deal of money
to be made. A few well-connected insiders from within and without the
county have become multi-millionaires at the expense of the average
citizen. There is a real cost to 'normal people.' Many properties, owned
for generations by moderate income families are up for sale due to an
Inability to pay property taxes. This isn't right no matter how down'
home' your commissioner sounds or how much they try to confuse the
issues.
Concerned Citizens of Franklin County, Inc., is here before you tonight
because hundreds of your neighbors believe that the county is out of
control and won't stop unless made to stop. Tonight we are going to
give you a picture of who we are and where we're going.
Today, Franklin County spends about $5,000 a year' for every man
woman and child who lives here. What have you gotten for your
money?
Safe, well maintained roads?
Excellent medical care? "
More and better and better paying jobs?
A vibrant seafood industry?
Opportunities for you and your family?
Not for you and not for me. The policies of Franklin County are rob-
bing all of us; rich and poor, founding citizen or weekend sun worship-
per. The rampant spending of Franklin County has finally cone to a
head. People are out of work. Investors have voted with their feet and
left. This is not the fault of developers, real estate agents, employees of
the county or even greedy people in general. It is a fundamental failure
of leadership and contempt for you the individual citizen that allowed
this to happen. Somewhere along .the way the Commissioners of
Franklin County forgot that it's not their money ... it's yours. What is
especially frightening to me is that our county has become so depend-
ent on an ever increasing river of money coming in that they'll do darn
near anything to continue business as usual. Since 'real estate transac-
tions have tanked, providing less ad valorem taxes going forward, com-
missioners are now talking about raising our millage rate. This effects
not only investors and out of county owners but all of us who are
homesteaded and live here full-time. Taxes will be going up on every-
one!
CCFC is taking a stand on the issues at hand. Powerful forces are gath-
ering all across the State to try and put an end to this kind of thievery
because what's happened here is happening elsewhere as well. The
increase in taxation may not be as dramatic everywhere else but the
attitudes are basically the same. People are hurting and it is the
Commission'6 fault. If they care they'll start right now by pledging to
cut county jobs through" attrition, shelve unneeded expenses, cut the
budget back from this year's over-the-top number and going forward,
justify every single expense. An independent citizen oversight commit-
tee on the budget would be a good first step. Another positive move
would be to respect the citizenry and to stop engaging in the politics of
division. We have been divided among the 'us and them' for far too
long."
Abbey Shiver expressed the sentiments of many there when she said,
"Taxes are a necessary evil. I do not mind paying my fair share. But'this
is the first time in a decade I have not been able to give my workers a
raise." Without raises, and with rising property values, "Where are my
employees going to live?" Shiver blames rising taxes and insurance rates
for the financial troubles of many businesses and individuals in
Franklin County. She went on to say, "This county needs to be run like
a business...if it's not justified, we don't need it."
Paul Riegelmayer, treasurer, informed the crowd that to date, the CCFC
has a membership of 200 people and hopes to double that number in
the coming year. He went on to explain what started the group think-


ing about a need for grass roots activism. He said that although the
county budget has increased over 203% since 2001, the population has
decreased. He said, "Service for the county has not increased signifi-
cantly. All that money from those increases, if it hasn't gone into a
reserve somewhere, it's all been spent. But where is it? That's what we
need to find out."
Richard Harper, board member from St. George Island, continued the
explanations by saying, "Our goal this year is to insure that Franklin
County's budget is less than its record breaking 2006-2007 level of
$49,657,794.00. We also want to inform the public of our findings for
more open, more affordable, and more responsive government." He
went on to say that Franklin County has been controlled for genera-
tions by a few families and "It is our responsibility to be involved in our
government."


He further informed his audience'that for years the county government
has played the "us" vs. "them" game. He said, "County government
gets us pointing fingers at each other, blaming each other, when the real
culprit is the government itself. Tonight let's change the definitions of
'us', and 'them'. From this day foihard, 'us' is everybody that gets a tax
bill and 'them' is going to be everybody that contributes to our tax bills
going up. All of a sudden there's more of 'us' than 'them'."
Dolores Roux, board member from Apalachicola, asked as many peo-
ple as possible to sign up for working committees that had been estab-
lished. She said, "Let's 'We the People' associate ourselves together for
a better Franklin County." She referred to six CCFC committees that
people could work on.

* Meeting Attendees Committee
The CCFC needs eyes and ears! Attend public meetings for us. Make
notes and email significant information to CCFC Central.

Board members are also needed from Apalachicola, Carrabelle, Lanark
Village, and Eastpoint.
The remainder of the meeting was given over to questions and com-
ments from the floor.
Question: What funds are needed by CCFC this year and for what?
Answer: So far we've spent $7 or 8 thousand. Were trying to put
together a war chest. We need to have attorneys and forensic account-
ants because nobody can understand the county budget. There's no
accountability. We're probably going to need in excess of $100,000 over
the next year.
Question: We're a county in the state of Florida. I can't understand
why, if people in Tallahassee have been contacted, why isn't anything
being done there?
Answer: The person from state government said, "We encourage you
to deal through your state representative." Our problem is that our rep-
.resentative is the brother of one.af: the county commissipnrs,,iwyhp for
the last two years has broken the tie vote on the budget process to
increase our taxes.
Comment: the county governments are lobbying the state government
against property tax relief. "The taxpayers are paying for lobbying
efforts against lowering taxes."
One of the persons in the audience was Franklin County
Commissioner G. Russell Crofton. He summed up a lot of the feeling
in the room with the words, "You all are doing the right thing here.
Tw6 years ago at the budget hearing there wasn't one citizen in the
room. The statement was made there that department heads know
what they need so we need to let them do it. Unless you continue with
CCFC nothing is going to get done."
The meeting ended with the general feeling that a great deal had been
accomplished for a first public meeting of a new force in Franklin
County.

Lanark Village Water And

Sewer

Petition to Dissolve
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
Mr. Snyder of the Lanark Village Concerned Citizens returned to
inform the Board that things are not running as smoothly as had been
hoped. The citizens of Lanark want more information and guarantees.
The following is Mr. Snyder's statement and the discussion that fol-
lowed.

Bill Snyder-Lanark Village
"I am here representing myself and the Concerned Citizens of Lanark
Village. We have circulated a petition to dissolve the Lanark Village
Water and Sewer District and 314 land owners have signed. This is
more than enough: signatures to cause a referendum that will allow the
people to vote and decide whether they should dissolve the District or
not. However, it is our feeling that it would be premature to present
these petitions to the county today. We believe that it would be a waste
of the County's time and money. And we think that it would be a waste
of the Concerned Citizens of Lanark's time and resources to put this to
a vote without having some details worked out. I say this because the

LVWS District which was established with a favorable vote in person or
by proxy of the owners of 50% or more of the property owners within
the district. Thus to undue what was done we will need a favorable vote
of the owners of 50% or more of the property within the district to vote
to be 'law. Back when the district was established we had one person
that owned over half of the property in Lanark. Her vote alone would
have been all that was needed. Now we have 1435 pieces of property in
the district that is owned by roughly 1000 people. These people are scat-
tered all over the country. We worked extremely hard and only got 372
people to.vote back in November's non-binding referendum. Of those
299 voted to merge with Carrabelle. If I see it right,, the votes will be
counted using the number of parcels of property owned by each voter
and we will need 718.votes. We are afraid that if Carrabelle can not
answer a lot of questions about what it will mean to Lanark such as
what the rates will be; what happens to the "ready to serve" deal on the
associated leans; and what pieces of property will remain with the
Village, it will be impossible to get the needed votes. Even with every-
thing answered favorably it will be a monumental task. The Concerned
Citizens of Lanark have worked very hard to make a merger happen
and it would be foolish for us to rush in and cause it to fail. The citizens
of Lanark deserve to know what they are voting for and are willing to
give Carrabelle the proper time to do ample studies. We have listened
to our fellow citizens and have identified the property that seems most
important for Lanark's' present and future needs. We would like to
retain ownership of three lots where the office and warehouse are situ-
ated on. This property is in the center of Lanark and would be perfect
for a park. We would like to keep the property that the Lanark Village
Association has fenced off and used for boat storage. This property is
our main source of income. We need three acres adjoining the fire
department property. They will need room for.expansion and training.
We would also like to have five acres across the road at the end of
Spring Dr. located on Road St. This property would be ideal for a future
park and possibly the home of the future Camp Gordon Johnston
Museum. We are arnot asking for much ... Carrabelle would only need
the lands that are necessary for the operation of the water and sewer
system. He said that we would retain the rest of our land to use as parks
or as we saw fit. We realize that our system is old and outdated and will
be expensive to upgrade and operate. With that in mind, we think the
people would be open to allowing Carrabelle to sell some land to help
pay for these expenses. All, we would ask is that it is done with the
utmost respect for our community. We request that each land lot would
be released one at a time for single family dwelling only. We have been
asked to trust Carrabelle. and for the most part we do. However our peo-
ple need an answer before they can make an informed vote. We would
now ask Carrabelle to trust us enough to spend the time and money to
do the proper studies and spell everything out in as much detail as they
can. Thank-you."
There was a brief show, of support with some applause for Mr. Snyder's
presentation.
Commissioner Rohrs then came to the podium. "Some of the things
that Mr. Sullivan ... ah, Mr. Snyder has said I do agree with. There are
a lot of things that need to be addressed with the communications with
the merger with Carrabelle. Commissioner Thoman had attended a
City Commission meeting several months 'ago and had given them a list
of concerns from the District. The letter that we had received in return
from the commissioners (City) and from the City administrator was
stating that we did not need to concern ourselves with these issue; that
we needed only to dissolve the district and that they would take care of
the rest of the situation. do not feel that it is necessary for Mr. Snyder
to be involved with what we as commissioners do in these negotiations.
It is nice that they be involved-this is true. But I feel that it is impor-
tant as commissioners as to what takes place with our assets and with
our debts and in situations dealing with the District-I feel that it is our
responsibility to provide that."
Jerry Judge then spoke: "I have been asked about the condition of the
District Treatment plant. This is important to understand because of
the up-coming merger. Commissioner Sullivan looked into this for me.
She shared the report with me and I will briefly share some of this
information with you ... This is directly from an engineers report on a
field trip to Lanark Village Sewer and Pump station-April 19, 2000. It
includes recommendarions for -tork necesisar\ to ri\ the lie. I quote,-
'There are senous defects in the under designed sis tem which need',;
corrections in the immediate and the near lifrure." The problems'were.
many but most are discussing things on the list: hazardous mainte-
.nance practices-when the pumping intake line is clogged up inside the
pump chamber one of the staff must physically enter the sewage pond
and place a bucket over a six inch intake operating to cap the flow
before the pumping tank can be de-waterized. This is a very hazardous
practice. It could expose the staff individual to e-coli and other commu-
nicable diseases The final recommendation on this long list was-Until
these sewage plant improvements are completed and in place Lanark
management should discourage any government official-federal,
state, or county-from inspecting the pumping plant least they seek to
place restrictions on the use of Lanark Sewage Plant operation. This
report by the engineer was written April 28,'2006. Commissioner
Sullivan has yet to find any documentation indicating that these prob-
lems have been solved.
Doris Gibbs and Doris Pendleton then brought questions to the Board
concerning the voting procedures that would come into play if a vote is
ever to be taken with regards to this issue--for example; is it property
owners, or voters; or if someone owns, two properties are they entitled
to two votes; what about joint property owners etc.? "We are asking for
some guidance from Mr. Shuler and this Board as to who can vote and
how we are going to come up with that list of voters and of owners of
property who are eligible to sign the petition."
General election procedures and even the procedure for electing the
water board commissioners is not the same when it comes to a vote
concerning property owners who are residents of Florida or of other
states but who nevertheless have a legitimate concern in this sewer
District. Doris Gibbs suggested.the possibility of having a mail-in vote
as an alternative.
Another question was who is going to pay for this election? It was
admitted that the County Commission would have to pay for the elec-
tion. The tentative cost was estimated at 1500 to 2000 dollars for a spe-
cial election of this type.
A motion was then made that the County Attorney meets with Doris
Gibbs and Doris Pendleton and inform them as to the legal require-
ments and all that is necessary to make this election a reality. The
motion was approved.

Interim Measures for Gulf
of Mexico Red Snapper
Finalized
April 2, 2007-A final rule by
NOAA Fisheries Service imple-
menting interim measures in the
Gulf of Mexico red snapper fish-
ery published today, April 2,
2007. The measures are intended
to temporarily address over fish-
ing of red snapper in 2007, while
the Gulf of Mexico Fisfery
Management Council develops
additional, long-term measures to
end over fishing and rebuild the
red snapper stock.
The interim measures will:
* reduce the commercial red
snapper minimum size limit to
13" total length (effective April 2,
2007);
* reduce the daily recreational
bag limit to two fish (effective
May 2, 2007);
* prohibit captain and crew of
for-hire vessels from retaining a
recreational bag limit (effective
May 2, 2007);
* reduce total allowable catch
(TAC) to 6.5 million pounds
(mp) 3.315 mp commercial
and 3.185 mp recreational (effec-
tive May 2, 2007);
* establish in the shrimp fishery a
red snapper bycatch mortality
reduction goal of 50% of the
2001-2003 average (effective May
2, 2007).
Since the interim rule does not
become effective until May 2,
2007, during the first 11 days of
the 2007 recreational season, cap-
tain and crew may retain a bag
limit, and the four-fish bag limit
will apply.

Music Makers
Luciano and Martha Gherardi are familiar to music lovers along the
Forgotten Coast area. The audience was enthralled at a luncheon held
by the Friends of the Franklin County Library at the Eastpoint
Volunteer Fire Department, with proceeds going to the new library
building planned for Eastpoint. The Gherardis performed as the Duo
Internazionale. Well known to those who appreciate great music, the
two sometimes perform with Bedford Watkins as the Trio
Internazionale, with' Watkins on the piano. For the Friends of the
Library program the Gherardis took the audience on a musical tour of
the world as Martha played the violin and Luciano the accordion.
Presenting the Sounds of Travel, the duo began with O Sole Mia,
played Zorba the Greek, tunes from the Follies Bergere, a Hungarian
dance, tripping from country to country. The sound of canaries filled
the room in the tune from the Canary Islands. The Gherardis have a
website at www.homtown.com/duotri, and can be reached at
lumar@iname.com. Martha teaches music and recitals by her students
are very popular.


Cattle Theory

Humor
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
The cattle are all grazing in a pasture not far off from the farmer's
house and barn. One of the, cattle wanders away from the herd. He ends
up grazing in a patch of tall grass just behind the barn.. Suddenly he
hears the farmer's voice. The farmer is talking to the butcher. They are
negotiating a price for the cattle. The bargaining is tight and in the
debate the butcher bemoans the depressed price of meat and the excess
of hides for sale at the market. By the end of the negotiation a price for
the cattle is agreed upon. The butcher hauls off a load of squealing pigs,
and the farmer returns.to the farm house with a freshly killed chicken
for supper as a celebration.
The steer, which was silently grazing behind the barn, is in total shock.
He can not believe what he has just overheard. He runs back to the pas-
ture where all of his.compatriots are grazing peacefully.
"You are not going to.believe this!" he screams. "I have justoverheard
farmer Jones. He is about to sell us all to a butcher. The butcher is going
to slit our throats, drain our blood, cut and grind our flesh, and sell it
to other humans for food. They are going to pickle our brains and
tongues, boil our hooves for glue, make chip dip out of our livers, kill
and fry our babies. They are even going to tan our hides and make
clothing out of our skins. These humans are insane beasts. It is all a
trick! The farmer only cares for us and shows concern for our health to
fatten us up for the kill. He feeds us cheep free grass, and then sells our
flesh, blood, and bones by the pound to other of his horrid merciless
human neighbors. Our-friends, the pigs, have already gone off to their'
deaths, and I saw with my own eyes the slaughter of a defenseless
chicken. The farmer grabbed the poor thing up by the feet and then
with one blow, lopped off its head on a stump. It was the most horrid
thing that I have ever seen in my life. We must do something! We must
unite. We muiti.organize against the himan beasts before it fs'too late "
and iwe te all hopele ly murdered 'hd'flaightered."
The cattle in the pasture all simultaneously lifted their heads and moo-
oaned...
"Oh no, not another conspiracy theory!"

"I'm a Country Songwriter-Fact and Fantasy"
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
A young man came walking into my ice cream parlor over in Carrabelle
one afternoon. This young man was a Country Songwriter.
After reading a number of my poems that I had framed and hung here
and there, he came up to me and confessed his passion.
"I'm a Country Songwriter," he said.
"No kidding?" I responded in awe and admiration.
"Well, I mean, I am a musician and I can write songs. I play and teach
guitar."
"That's great," I said. "Who have you written songs for?"
"Well, I was thinking that I would write some songs for Tom T. Hall. I
heard that he lives around here somewhere."
"I've heard that too."
"Do you think that he would buy some songs off me?"
"Sure," I said. "Sing me one of the songs that you have written for Tom
T. Hall. I would love to hear it."
"Well ... ahh ... I haven't actually written any songs for Tom T. Hall
yet."
"Oh? Why not?"
"Well, it is a lot of work to write a song. You know first you have to

Three Hazards, One

Solution

BY DAVID HILL, SUNDANCE GROUP

You've worked hard during your lifetime to accumulate assets to pay
for your retirement. You'll soon be'knocking on the door to retirement,
or maybe you've already entered, and it's time to check out the new
environment. Here are some hazards you'll need to address.

Inflation

According to the Department of Labor, during the last 25 years, over-
all prices have risen, 115%. The average annual increase has been
3.1%-meaning an item costing $1 on 12/31/1981 would have cost
$2.15 on 12/31/2006. An individual living on a fixed income in retire-
ment over the 25-year period would have only 47% of the purchasing
power today that he/she had in 1982. Given the recent run-up in oil
prices, the looming federal deficit and global political situation, there is
little optimism future inflation will be lower. Inflation for retirees can
be expected to worsen as the demand for health care escalates in
response to four million baby boomers a year turning age 60-that's
one every eight seconds. This will continue through 2024. Medical
advances have made giant strides in increasing life spans which means
even more pressure from an aging population. Over the same 25 years,
the medical care component of the Consumer Price Index ("CPI")
shows that what'cost $1 in 1982-84 now cost $3.36. Since health
decreases with age, you'll probably be spending a lot more on medicine,
doctors and hospitals during retirement than, during your working
years. This will complicate things as you'll probably be living on most-
ly a fixed income. With 61% of Americans believing they'll need at
least $500,000 in accumulated assets in order ,to retire (Source:
Retirement Corporation of America, USA Today), there exist a huge
gap for many retirees. Make sure your retirement plans include infla-
tion of not less than 3u5% annually. 'P,;

Taxes "'

There are so many taxes we seldom stop to add them all up. Consider
the following partial list: federal, state and local income taxes; sales
taxes; property taxes; gasoline; alcoholic beverages; tobacco; telephone;
and if you work, add Social Security and Medicare. Make no mistake
about it, taxes levied on businesses-FICA, unemployment, franchise,
income, etc.-are passed to consumers as higher prices. All the various
taxes were recently added up and amazingly the marginal tax rate
exceeded'40% regardless of income level (Source: NBER, Kotlikoff &
Rapson). In retirement you'll even pay taxes on your Social Security
unless you have a very low annual income or your money is in tax-
deferred annuities. You can do something about the tax bite in retire-
ment, and plans should be tax efficient. For example, investigate the
use of tax-deferred fixed annuities so that earnings are not taxed until
withdrawn for use; use qualified money first in retirement and postpone
Social Security benefits as long as possible; consider the feasibility of
putting money into a Roth IRA that grows tax free.

Unsuitable Risks

Safety of principal should be your primary objective in retirement with
growth a distant second. Over long periods you may earn more by put-
ting your money at risk in the stock market, but you'll need the disci-
pline to ride the market cycles and.postpone the use of your money
until the long term. Of course, if you have more than needed for your
retirement-don't forget inflation and taxes-then you can afford to
take risks with what you'll not need. The fact is most retirement-mind-
ed Americans consider growth their number one objective-that's why
the first question is always "how much will I make". The first question
should be "how safe is my money". Will Rogers said it best: "I'm more
interested in the return of my money than the return on my money". If
you have your retirement money in an investment whose value is deter-
mined by the market (stocks, bonds, diversified portfolio, commodities,
hedge funds, etc.) you are taking risks and could lose all or some of

A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


The Franklin Chronicle


Eastpoint Water and Sewer
from Page 1

not afford the cost. Grants are
getting fewer and harder to come
by; loans are getting more expen-
sive-money all over is tight. Mr.
Putnal then asked if there were
any, further options. Mr. Allen
suggested the possibility of incor-
poration (Eastpoint becoming a
City). This was discouraged. Mr.
Allen added that whatever course
is decided there will be increases
in charges to the residents of
Eastpoint. The Rural Develop-
ment loans are necessary and
they will have to be paid one way.
or another.
"What kind of increases are you
talking about?" asked Mr.
Lockley.
"You want a scenario; I've got
one."
"Is this going to be a best case
scenario or a worst case?" asked
Mr. Crofton.
"This is a very difficult thing to
predict. Our original application
went to Rural Development
(loan) in 2004. Everybody knows'
what oil prices have done since
then. Pipe is directly related to oil
prices. It has gone up significant-
ly. Construction cost, labor costs;
everything has gone up signifi-
cantly ... We are going to shave;
we are going to leave some stuff
out; we are going to change some
things to the mechanical opera-
tion and to the economic good. If
we were to increase our sur-
charge, we could reduce our mill-
age from 4 mils to 3 mils. That
would give us equability on the
rates right there. We could then
raise our water and sewer rates to
such that we could pay off the
Rural Development Loan. I'll
give you an average residential
rate... Our base rate for water
with no consumption is $11.40
and $1.50 a thousand (gallons).
An average person in Eastpoint
uses 7,000 gallons a month. Our
sewer base rate is $12.40 we're
Currently charging $1.50 a thou-
sand. The total of those two bills
equals $44.80. If you put that on
an annual basis ... the cost is
$537.60." He went on to explain
that the average taxable value of
a property in Eastpoint is
$90,000. "That would yield at
our current 4 mil rate $360 a year.
So that runs your average residen-
tial cost to a home owner in the
Eastpoint community to $897 a
year." The average charge in the
expanded area is $632 a year. An
increase in the surcharge from
25% to 40% will bring the outside
area to the approximate $897 esti-'
mate-establishing equity. "And
then the water and sewer rate
would have to come up to com-
pensate for the debt service on the
line. Does that answer your ques-


tion? Now ... what would the
average bill become with the rate
increase ... Water for the average
residential customer would basi-
cally remain the sarhe. Sewer is
our really big problem. It is very
expensive. If we were to raise that
rate on the sewer from the current
base rate of $12.40 to $14.00 and
about $3.00 a thousand. That
would raise our average sewer
residential customer from $44.80
to $56.50."
Mr. Allen then pointed out that
Eastpoint Water and Sewer rates
are lower than the surrounding
areas. He mentioned that there
have been no increases for almost
7 years. He told the 3oard that he
would provide them with a work
sheet of comparable area rates.
He also mentioned that Carra-
belle had received 27 million dol-
lars to help them with their water
and sewer. "Which is 27 million
more than we got," he empha-
sized over minor rumblings.
Mr. Parrish clarified the fact that
these increases were not to extend
services but to upgrade and
improve the present state of
affairs.
A motion was made to have the
County Attorney consult with
Mr. Allen and retuned to the
Board with his recommenda-
tions. This motion was approved.
A second motion was offered by
Mr. Putnal that we write a letter
to our legislative delegation
explaining the problem and ask-
ing for assistance. Mr. Parrish
suggested that the entire Board
get together in a "Workshop" for-
mat and discuss this issue further
before any action was decided.
Mr. Parrish was also concerned
that an increase in the rates might
cause a hardship for many
Eastpoint residents. Mr. Allen
agreed.
This began to get confusing and
Mr. Crofton humorously com-
plained of getting motion sick-
ness. The motion made by Mr.
Putnal to send a letter to the leg-
islative delegation was approved.
The suggestion for a public work-
shop was tabled until after the
County attorney consulted with
Mr. Allen and returned to advise
the Board.

Comp Plan Suit from Page I
to require the adoption of an overlay plan for St. James Island and an
assessment of the eight key issues,(set forth in 11.12) prior to any future
FLUM amendments on St. James Island.
4. Strategic Wildlife/Conservation Corridors
In addition to the change to the St. James Island FLUM for the
Conservation Residential lands to exclude all lands depicted in grey
cross-hatch on the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Habitat Conservation Linkage Map on Eastern St.
James Island (attached as Exhibit), The FLUM shall be amended or
revised to designate all other lands depicted in grey cross-hatch as either
"conservation" or "recreation" under the existing FLUE Policies 2.2
(a) and (b). No revision of the density and intensity permitted by exist-
ing Policies 2.2 (a) and (b) shall be applicable to the Habitat
Conservation Linkage lands.
5. Additional Public Water Access on St. James Island
St. Joe Company shall donate 50 acres of land to Franklin County
abutting the west right-of-way of the U.S, Highway 98 bridge (site of an
existing unimproved boat ramp) with at least 100 yards of shoreline
frontage on Ochlockonee Bay, for purposes of a County park and pub-
lic boat ramp for shallow draft vessels.
6. Ashleys to Dismiss Appeal and Challenge to Compliance Determination
on Remedial Amendments.
Upoi St. Joe Company's transfer of lands, Franklin County's adoption
of the remedial amendments, and the determination that the amend-
ments are "in compliance, the Pamela and Don Ashley shall dismiss
the pending appeal and any proceedings on the remedial compliance
determination. The parties shall agree to stay any proceeding or extend
any applicable brief filing deadline to allow consideration of this settle-
ment.


Three Hazards, One Solution from Page 9
your retirement nest egg. There are no exceptions: "higher potential
earnings mean higher risks". When you invest money in risky places,
there are no guarantees you'll get it back. When you put money in safe
places, you are guaranteed that you'll get it back with interest if held for
the stated term. If preservation of principal is your prime objective,
then a safe money place is your only option.

Going It Alone
Not working with an advisor is probably the biggest risk you'll take
with your retirement money. Retirement is the largest purchase you'll
ever make, and you can't borrow money to pay for it., The money
you've saved is all that is between a worry-free retirement and panic-
so don't attempt to navigate the hazardous world of investments with-
out an advisor. Professional help doesn't cost, it pays,

think up a melody that people will like and then you have to write all
the notes down; and then you have to figure out what words go with the
notes and all that sort of thing."
"Yeah, I realize that. But don't you think that you should write one of
your Ton T. Hall songs down and show it to him. How else would he
know if he wanted to buy it?"
"Well, what if he doesn't like it? Then I will have gone to all that trou-
ble for nothing?"
"That's true. I never really thought of it like that. But then tell me; how
were you intending to sell a song to Tom T. Hall if you haven't written
any yet?"
S"Well, I don't really know. I heard a story once about how Kris
Kristofferson landed a helicopter in Johnny Cash's back yard and then
sold him 'Sunday Morning Coming Down' or something like that. You
know that was a really stupid song: 'I got up in the morning' and drank
me a beer. Then I made a fried egg sandwich and ate some baloney...;


what the hell kind of a song is that? That ain't no song; it's a paragraph
and not even a good paragraph at that. I could write a better song than
that."
"Well maybe you better get started. I have heard that Kris Kristofferson
has really made a lot of money writing those paragraphs."
"Yeah, but I don't even know where to rent a helicopter. It takes money
to make money, you know what I mean? The rich get richer while the
poor get to give damn guitar lessons."
"Forget the darn helicopter'.I mean-write a song."
"Well, what if I just went out to Tom T. Hall's house and asked him if
he would like me to write some songs for him? Do you think that he
would hire me?"
"I certainly don't see why he wouldn't. Why I'll bet that old Tom T. is
just sitting out at his mansion behind all those armed guards wishing
that somebody would bust into the Plantation and his ten million dol-
lar home, knock down his door and offer to write songs for him. I
mean, he probably don't know how to write a darn song himself any-
more. I heard that he made his wife write his last hit song-Redneck
Riviera. Watermelon Wine, ya sure? It was that black guy who was
sweeping the floor that night that deserved all the money. Tom T. just
had to write down what the guy told him for god's sake!"
"Do you really think so?"
"Yeah! Do you know where the Plantation'is? I'll give you directions to
it, if you don't?"
Well, I don't know if my young friend ever made it to Tom T. Hall's
house or got himself a helicopter, but I do know that he didrnt make it,
to the Dixie Theatre where on March 9 and 10 all these great Country
Songwriters were right there on the Dixie Theatre stage.
I went and saw Karen Staley, T.W. Hale and Don Poythress. Tony
Mullins of Mullintone Music (his own company), Danny Orton, and
Jason Matthews performed the following night. Among them they have
written songs for Faith Hill, Michael Martin Murphy, Reba McEntire,
George Jones, Billy Ray Cyrus, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, Tim
McGraw, Billy Currington and many more.
I am sure, being a fantasy songwriter and poet-musician myself, that
none of these big singing stars mentioned above would be anything if it
weren't for these talented but not yet so famous songwriters.
I personally had a song that I carried around in my wallet for about
eight years that would have made Tom T. Hall into a "real somebody".
I wrote a song for Erroll Garner's Dreamy-but he died before I could
get it to him. And that darn Alan Jackson. He actually came into my
ice cream parlor one cold winter night with his beautiful wife and stole
the title for his most famous album right off one of the poems on my
wall "Under the Influence". I'm the one who wrote that those three
words, I mean. But what can I do? You can't sue a guy for stealing three
words. I mean all these words that I have used in this story right here
were probably once used by Mark Twain and Charles Dickens and they
probably used words that were used by some previous famous writer.
So what can you do? You just have to sit here and suck it up!
I am goingto tell you what, even the life of a Fantasy Country
Songwriter can be tragic. Ask me sometime; I'll tell you about it.
No wait a minute, maybe I'll write a screenplay about it. Then I'll find
out where Clint Eastwood lives. I'll rent a helicopter-but should I
,write the screenplay first or rent the helicopter? It is a lot of workwrit-
ing a darn screenplay-especially when I don't even know if Clint
Eastwood will like it or not? What if he don't like it? Then who pays for
the dar helicopter? Maybe I could write to Clint Eastwood and ask
him if he would pay for the helicopter that I'm going to rent if he does-
n't like ny screen play?
Do you think that he would do that?
