"Friends of the Wakulla
Band" Played at Harry A's
to Raise Money for
Humane Society
On Saturday, June 23, 2007 from
4:00 to 7:00 p.m. "Friends of the
Wakulla Band" consisting of leg-
endary Wakulla musicians
Walter and Susan Solburg who
were joined by Grant Peeples of
Tallahassee, John Paul Daniel of
Nashville and other friends for
this fundraiser for the Franklin
County Humane Society. The
admission charge was $15.00
which included bar-be-que sand-
wiches, baked beans, cole slaw
and chips which were donated
from Harry A's and served by vol-
unteer Attorney Barbara Sanders
and all the proceeds went to the
Humane Society. The total raised
from this event was $1,500 which
was much needed and went to the
animals at the Franklin County
Humane Society. In addition to
the admission charge, there was a
raffle that was 6 tickets for $5.00
and the prizes were a book and
some prints donated by John
Spohrer, a Grant Peeples CD,
and some T-shirts donated by
Helen Spohrer. The funds were
collected by volunteer Ronnie
Wallace who manned the front
table and also collected treats for
the dogs and cats that were
brought by the public.
Humane Society President, John
Spohrer, was on hand for the fes-
tivities and said, "I appreciate all
the supporters and I want the
County Commission to see the


Humane Society as a vital part of
the community and we want
them to continue to support us."
Bud Hayes, the Treasurer of the
Humane Society, was also there
at Harry A's but was waiting for
the 5K Race, the Island Sizzler,
where he was going to act as First
Responder, ready to help runners
in distress with ice and Gatorade.
The race followed the band and
started at 7:00 p.m.
"Island Sizzler" 5KRace

Money for Humane Society
The 9th Annual St. George
"Island Sizzler" 5K Race and
One Mile Fun Run was another
successful fundraiser also held on
St. George Island on Saturday,
June 23, 2007. The registration
was held at 6:00 p.m. on West 1st
Street at The Cut Hair Salon
which cost $20.00 with shirt and
$12.00 without shirt. The total
raised was $5,000. The "Island
Sizzler" is one of the three most
successful fundraisers for the
Humane Society which are, in
order, "Art for Arf" in January,
"Bow Wow Ball" on Halloween,
and then the "Island Sizzler". Dr.
Hobson Fulmer was the organiz-
er for the event and mentioned
there were also corporate spon-
sors that donated $1,000 each
and were: Sentinel, Frontline, K9
Advantix, Apalachicola Bay
Animal Clinic,' and Hill's Pet
Nutrition.
The One Mile Fun Run was held
first, at 7:00 p.m., where entrants
ran on the bike path and went up
to a cone then turned around and


ran back. Number 1432, Zack
Reinert, 10 years old, from
Tallahassee, won first place,
Brianna Hodges from
Tallahassee won second place
and Michael McGuire from
Tallahassee came in third. Then,
at approximately 7:15 p.m., the
5K race was held. The winner
was Jasen Fulghum of
Tallahassee, second place was
Brian Goddin from Chipley and
third place was Tim Unger from
Tallahassee. Some results of both
races are listed separately. After
the 5K race, the participants were
invited to a meal at the famous
post-race party held at the St.
George Island Firehouse; which
fed about 200 people. The food
there included Apalachicola Bay
seafood, desserts, soft drinks and
adult beverages.
Dr. Fulmer and the animals at the
Franklin County Humane
Society located at Highway 65 in
Eastpoint are all appreciative of
the donations, supporters and
participants. The website for the
Humane Society is www.forgot-

Briefs


June 19, 2007
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
At this week's meeting one com-
missioner was absent due to a
previous engagement. Commis-
sioner Parrish is the coach of the

approved.

Franklin County
Department of Solid Waste
& Recycling, Animal
Control, Parks & Recreation
Assistant Director's Report
FOR THE BOARD'S INFOR-
MATION & UPDATES
1. Application for Franklin
County Animal Shelter: We have
been talking with Apalachicola
National Forest for the use of the
Wilma Work Center that is locat-
ed on Highway 12 in Wilma,
Florida. This center will allow us
to house animals during any
emergency evacuation for storms
in Franklin County. We need this
plan to be eligible for FEMA
Funds.
Action Requested: Needs Board's
Approval Contingent upon
Attorney's Review.
This request was approved by the
Board.

Dan Rothwell-County
Engineer
The airport access road is ...
about a third done. The mainte-
nance shop is still waiting on var-
ious procedures and information.
Estimated quantities and project-
ed costs for the Timber Island
parking facilities at the boat ramp
have been submitted to the road
department. They should provide
for 31 parking spots. The road
department must now coordinate
these estimates with its budget to
see if the project is feasible.

Motel/Hotel Ordinance
The public hearing on Motel/
Hotel ordinance was tabled and
rescheduled for the second mieet-
ing in July.

DOT Revetment Project on
US 98-Tommy Speights
Construction is about to start on
the revetment project on US 98
by Phoenix Construction Ser-
vices, Inc. from Lynn Haven Fl.
The construction is anticipated to
begin in late July to mid-August
2007. Construction completion is
anticipated in November 2009.
The contract amount is
$34,746,677.70. This project has
been designed by FDOT in
Chipley, FL. The project over-.
sight for FDOT is PBS&J in
Tallahassee, FL. The Project
Administrator is Harry L. Wood.
The work in this contract consists
of the permanent repair of dam-
age caused by Hurricane Dennis


along SR 30 (US 98) from School
Road to Wayside Park in
Franklin County. These repairs
include the installation of bulk-
head panels, sheet piling, soldier
piles and articulating block,


guardrail, miscellaneous asphalt
and performance turf.
For more information on this
project you can contact Harry L.
Wood PBS&J-Email: HLWood
@pbsj.com or Tommie Speights
FDOT Public Information
Director, district three-
Tommie.speights@dot.state.fl.us.
When the project begins there
will be one lane traffic in the
work area. When the work stops
at the end of each working day
the two lane traffic should be
reopened.

TDC-Update
With the new, unexpected short-'
ages in County Budgeting loom-
ing in the not too distant future
the TDC (Tourist Development
Council) seems to have taken on
an invigorated interest to all those
seeking funds for whatever rea-
son. Therefore it seems that
greater scrutiny is being placed
on the TDC's original mandate
and its basic reason for being. Mr.
Paul Parker was on hand once
again to inform the board.
"The Apalachicola Chamber of
Commerce has decided not to
provide administrative services to
the TDC any longer. So we put
out an RFP and we only had one
response ... That was from Curt
Blair who resigned from the TDC
in order to submit that RFP and
we decided that would be the best
way to provide an administrative
staff and administrative services.
He is'going to provide the same
service that the Chamber did at
the same terms and the same
responsibility, same amount of
money...
It seems that no one else had
responded to the RFP and there-
fore Mr. Blair decided to adapt
his circumstance'to suit the chal-
lenge. Because of Mr. Blair resig-
nation the TDC board will be
looking for a new volunteer.

Hurricane Debris
A motion was then made to
,advertise for additional hurricane
disaster pick up providers. The
motion to advertise was approved
by the Board.

parcel lying in section 27, town-
ship 8 south, Range 8 West,
Apalachicola, Franklin County,
Florida. Request submitted by
Thurman Roddenberry, agent.
This request was tabled due to
Mr. Parrish's absence in consider-
ation that a decision in his district

ence.

Alan Pierce Report
1 Inform the Board and public
that Commissioners Sanders and
Lockley were recognized at the
Florida Association of Counties
conference in Orlando for becom-
ing certified as Advanced County
Commissioners. Only 24 county
commissioners in the state
received this distinction.
2 Board action to set up a budg-
et committee of Ms. Marcia
Johnson, Ms. Ruth Williams, and
myself to present a suggested
budget to the Board. This is pro-
posed because none of the budg-
ets submitted contemplated a 9%
reduction of revenues that has
been dictated by the Legislature.
One of the tasks of the budget
committee will be to make sure
the county properly responds to
the deadlines created by the
Legislature last week. On June
25, the Dept. of Revenue submit-
ed to the Property Appraiser and
the Chairman a statement on the
amount of tax levies that will be
used to calculate the annual
growth rate in tax revenues from
2001 to 2006. The county must
verify the information by July 2.
It is very important that the coun-
ty report the revenues accurately
because they form the basis for
the rollback and the cap. This was
approved by the Board.
3 Board action to direct County
Attorney to review lease for St.
George Lighthouse. And, Board
action to allow St. George Island
Lighthouse Assoc. to start subsoil
investigation to determine what
needs to be done to hold up the
lighthouse once erected. This was
approved by the Board.


4 Board action to direct Clerk's
Office to go out for bid for prop-
erty insurance. Based upon some
submitted estimates it is believed
the county can save substantially,
perhaps $100,000, by receiving
public bids on county property
insurance. This was approved by
the Board.
5 Board action for Chairman to
sign DEP storm water permit for
the St. George Island bike path.
DOT will be sending the con-
struction contracts in July. This
Was approved by the Board.
6 Board direction on whether to
adopt a Resolution opposing the
Comprehensive Immigration
Reform Act of 2007. Gulf
County has adopted a Resolution
and has asked Franklin County to
adopt one.


This was tabled due to a lack of
knowledge on the part of the
Board members as to the content
and implications of the
Immigration Reform Act and the
Board's requested opposition.
7 Board action to approve
Change Order No. 1 to increase
contract for widening CR 67 by
$108,265. This change order is
for replacement of culverts and
headwalls that were originally
thought to be in good shape but'
are not. There is money in the
project to cover the change order.
This was approved by the Board.

its options. The DCA report on
all the other changes will be

the Board.
9 Board action to approve a con-
tract with Preble-Rish for the
design and engineering and con-
struction supervision of the St.
George Island Boat Ramp. Their
fees are included in the Florida
Boating Improvement award.
The design is mostly completed
and will be going to DEP by end
of June for permitting. This was
approved by the Board.
10 Inform Board on status pf
various land acquisition efforts.
A) Sportsman Lodge Acquisi-
tion-The TPL is in the final
stages of negotiating with Mr.
Allen. The county, with the
Seafood Task Force assistance, is
writing the proposed manage-
ment plan for the site. Once TPL
finishes their acquisition, then the
county, using FCT funds, will
negotiate to buy the Sportsman
Lodge from TPL.
B) 11 Mile-TPL is interested in
assisting in the acquisition of the
Schoelles property at 11 Mile,
and they will begin negotiating
with the property owners.
C) Lombardi site-The TPL 'is
not interested in working on the
acquisition of the Lombardi site.
While the site has environmental
value, TPL is more interested' in
working on the Schoelles site at
11 Mile. So, we have informed
the Seafood Task Force that it
needs to find another funding
source for Lombardi.
11 Clarification on who is going
to the ISSC meeting. The Board
travel funds are not adequate.to
send 4 people to the ISSC meet-
ing. I have spoken to Mr. Bill
Mahan and told him that if, he..
can pay for his travel out of his
budget then he can go, but other-
wise the Board does not have
enough travel funds to send him.
Commissioner Lockley has vol-
unteered not to go, so that leaves,
Commissioner Parrish and Kevin
Begos, Seafood Taskforce Coor-
dinator, as the two going on
county funds. The Finance Office
does think there is enough money
to send those two. Board action
to clarify Commissioner Parish
and Kevin Begos will be traveling
to the ISSC meeting on behalf of,
the county. This was approved by
the Board.
12 Inform Board that FEMA
has notified the county that the
CRS rating of the county is being
retained, which means that every,
flood insurance premium will be
receiving a 10% discount.
13 Inform Board that DCA has
written the Board that the trans-
mittal package fo all the land
uses changes submitted in April,
except the DSW change, is under
review. DCA has sent the DSW
(799 acres with affordable hous-
ing acreage involved) proposal


16 Regarding the Board's direc-
tion to set up a Lanark Village
Oversight Committee- The DEP
has expressed a willingness tp
-provide funds to hire a profes-
sional water systems analyst to
provide the county with a finance
,and system audit. I am waiting
for confirmation of the funds
being available. The recommend-
ed professional will be Mr. Hal
Falloy, a retired auditor from the
Auditor General's Office who
will be under contract to the
Florida Rural Water Association
for the work. I have spoken to Mr.
Brian Armstrong, attorney for the
District, and he indicated that the
District would assist.
I have also spoken extensively to
,the Governor's Office. They con-.
tend that the issue of oversight is
in the hands of the county com-.
mission by virtue of Lanark
Village being a special district
with county commission over-,
sight specifically cited in Chapter
189.428, Florida Statutes. The
Governor's Office is not going to
get involved at this time.
17 Remind Board that it will be
holding a workshop with' the
Hospital Board regarding the
Hospital on June 28, at 5:00 p.m.
here in the Annex.
18 The Seafood Task Force rec-
ommends the. Board enter into a
contract with Kevin Begos,
Seafood Task Force Coordinator,
for Mr. Begos to perform. the
work associated with the $25,000
DCA grant. Mr. Begos will per-
form the work under the supervi-
sion of the Task Force. Part of
the work involves obtaining
appraisals of the Lombardi
Property in Two Mile and anoth-
er site in Eastpoint. The grant.-
will reimburse the county for the
appraisal. Mr. Begos will receive
the remainder of the funds for the:
work the grant-requires. Board

beyond his' normal compensa-
tion. Mr. Pierce informed him
that it was,

ICourt
Your Public Trustee
BY MARCIA JOHNSON
Q. Someone close to me has begun to act
erratically and strangely different to the point
MARCIA JOHNSON of worrying me. Is there any help you can
offer in*this area?
A. Without knowing all the facts, there are two proceedings you may
wish to seek information on. One is the Baker Act proceeding which is
a means of providing an individual with emergency services and tem-
porary detention for mental health evaluation and treatment. The
other is the Marchman Act proceeding which provides assessment and
stabilization of a person allegedly abusing substances like drugs or alco-
hol and provides for treatment of substance abuse. Both Acts can occur
through voluntary admission. An involuntary Baker Act admission
occurs upon a finding by a Court that (1) a person is mentally ill and,
because of the mental illness, has refused voluntary placement for treat-
ment or is unable to determine whether placement is necessary; (2) a
person is incapable of living alone or with help, and without treatment
is likely to suffer from neglect or refuse to care for him/herself or there
is a substantial likelihood of inflicting harm by recent behavior; and (3)
all less restrictive treatment alternatives are not appropriate. An invol-
untary Marchman Act admission occurs when there is good faith rea-
son to believe the person is substance abuse impaired, and because of
such impairment, the person has (1) lost the power of self control with
respect to substance use, and either (2) has inflicted or
attempted/threatened to inflict, or, unless admitted for treatment, is
likely to inflict physical harm to him/herself or another, or (3) the per-
son's judgment has been so impaired because of substance abuse that
he/she is incapable of appreciating the need for substance abuse serv-
ices and to make a rational decision regarding same. A law enforce-
ment officer may take a person who appears to meet the criteria for a
Baker Act into custody and deliver the person to the nearest receiving
facility for an examination. A petition may be filed and paperwork
processed with the Clerk's Office, so please contact the Clerk's office to
get further information on either procedure.
If you have any questions or comments about this column, please for-
ward them to: Marcia Johnson, Clerk of the Court, 33 Market St.,
Ste. 203, Apalachicola, FL 32320, or email to: mmjohnson@

Record Increase In
Military Construction And

Veterans Affairs Bill
Bill includes largest single increasefor the VA
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida), a member of the Military
Construction-Veterans Affairs Subcommittee of the House
Appropriations Committee, today applauded House passage of the
Military Construction and Veterans Affairs. Appropriations Act for
Fiscal Year 2008 (HR 2648). In working to fulfill our commitment to
our veterans, the bill includes a $6.7 billion increase for the Department
of Veterans Affairs (VA) budget, the largest increase in our nation's his-
tory, and an $8.2 billion increase in military construction above 2007
levels.
"Providing quality medical care is a promise that we have made to our
brave men and women in uniform, and it is not only our duty, but our
moral obligation to do so," said Congressman Boyd. "This bill will
allow us to improve care for our nation's 5.5 million veterans, including
the 75,500 veterans in North-Florida." I. ; .;. '
The legislation provides the VA with a total of $43.2 billion for medical
care, additional claims processing personnel, and facility improvements
so that veterans will receive better healthcare, more metal health and
post-traumatic stress disorder services, and shorter waiting times for
doctors' appointments.
"We must remember that the costs of war include the costs of provid-
ing quality healthcare to our returning troops," Boyd stated. "I hope
this bill sends a clear message to our servicemen and women, their fam-
ilies, and our veterans that we, as a nation, respect their service and sac-
rifice and we will honor the commitment we have made to them."
Additionally, the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs
Appropriations Act enhances accountability to stop wasteful spending
by increasing funding for the Inspector General for the VA to improve
services for veterans and their families and to prevent and deter poten-
tial waste, fraud, and inefficiencies.
All of the major veterans groups have strongly endorsed this legislation,
including Veterans of Foreign Wars, The American Legion, Disabled
Veterans of America, Paralyzed Veterans of America, Military Officers
Association of America, Association of the United States Army,
National Association for Uniformed Services, and AMVets.,

Artist's rendering of proposed Sacred Heart Hospital in Port
St. Joe.


Sacred Heart Starts

Journey Toward New

Hospital
Sacred Heart Health System broke ground on a 25-bed community hos-
pital and medical office building in Port St. Joe that will serve Gulf and
Franklin Counties.
Sacred Heart staff was joined by area political leaders and local resi-
dents at a brief groundbreaking ceremony on the 27-acre site off
Highway 98. The groundbreaking was followed by a community recep-
tion at which Sacred Heart displayed renderings of the planned hospi-
tal building and campus design.
The site development and subsequent construction will take more than
a year, with the hospital tentatively scheduled to open in January 2009.
Sacred Heart estimates its cost for designing, building and equipping
the hospital will be approximately $30 million. The project includes:
* A community hospital with 25 private rooms, an emergency depart-
ment, and two operating rooms.
* An urgent care clinic to treat minor injuries and illnesses
* Laboratory services
* Diagnostic imaging services such as CT scans, x-ray, ultrasound and
mammography
* A Medical Office Building to provide offices for 10 physicians
* A helipad to be used by Sacred Heart's AirHeart helicopter, providing
rapid transport for trauma patients and other critically ill patients to a
Trauma Center.
In addition to new health care services, the hospital and medical office
building will mean an economic boost for the area by providing jobs for
an estimated 150 people.
For more information about making donations to the hospital and
donor recognition opportunities, please contact Dr. Henry Roberts at
the Sacred Heart Foundation, 850-416-4105.

Boyd Honored With

Special River Advocate

Award
At the Florida Wildlife Federation's 70th Annual Conservation Awards
Banquet, held June 23, 2007, at the Holiday Inn Harbourside, Indian
Rocks Beach, Florida, outstanding Florida conservationists were recog-
nized for their work in 2007. The Federation's annual selection of note-
worthy conservationists is one of the oldest in the state. Award winners
are selected from nominations made to the Federation's board of direc-
tors and are chosen for their dedicated efforts on behalf of Florida's fish
and wildlife and native habitats. For his laudable efforts to save the
Apalachicola River, the Florida Wildlife Federation is proud to award
Congressman Allen Boyd with the Special River Advocate of the Year
Award for 2007.
"I am so honored to receive the Special River Advocate of the Year
Award from the Florida Wildlife Federation," said Congressman Boyd.
"Since I've been in Congress, I have been working to end dredging
along the Apalachicola River, and the Florida Wildlife Federation has
been a tireless ally and advocate in this effort. I appreciate all that the

Elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1996, Allen Boyd rep-
resents the largest geographical congressional district in Florida. He has
championed fiscal responsibility and the reduction of the federal debt.
He has also been a staunch advocate of the Veterans of the Armed
Forces, the American farmer, as well as a supporter of hunting and fish-
ing. Congressman Boyd has also supported the acquisition of Pinhook
Swamp for many years.
Congressman Boyd has been a leading proponent for the proper man-
agement of the Apalachicola River which bisects the Florida
Panhandle. The headwaters of the Apalachicola originate in north
Georgia as the Chattahoochee River which runs through Atlanta and
as the Flint River just south of Atlanta. Water use by this city and by
other interests downstream has led to years of litigation and conflict
over water allocation. Adequate clean water is especially critical to sus-
tain the biodiversity of the Apalachicola river floodplain and the sur-
vival of the seafood industry and Apalachicola Bay. Boyd's interest in
the river is a strong reminder that good economic policies are often
times a component of good long-term environmental policies.
In addition to water allocation problems, the Apalachicola River has
been dredged in an effort to maintain a federally authorized channel to
facilitate the movement of barge traffic. Since 1957, dredging has creat-
ed huge sand piles and caused the degradation of floodplains to the
detriment of fish and wildlife-all for a small number of commercial
barges. To stop the economically infeasible and environmentally
destructive dredging, Representative Boyd used his position to restrict
funding for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE), which per-
formed the dredging. Not only was the cessation of dredging beneficial
to the environment, but to the taxpayers as well. Boyd's action has pre-
vented dredging for the past six years and aided the State of Florida in
its denial of the COE permit.
Congressman Boyd continues to help protect the Apalachicola by sup-
porting the Restore the Apalachicola River Ecosystem (RARE) Act and
by ensuring that the Corps of Engineers takes into consideration the
environmental ramifications of its actions on the river. Additionally,
his advocacy has resulted in a certified laboratory in the City of
Apalachicola which tests oysters and thereby facilitates the health of
the consumer and the industry.

A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


The Franklin Chronicle


Jim Taunton represents the General Contractor. "We are using local
framing crews, who are doing a great job." Local, in the context of
Forgotten Coast counties. The crew on the job in June is from Gulf
County.
Mr. Brown revealed details of'the new business at the City Commission
meeting in May. "We are aiming. at a room rate of $65.00 per night".
The newest motel will also be the lowest-priced. Typical amenities of
today's motels include cable TV,'internet access and WiFi capability
which all presumably will be offered by motel management.
Other overnight places to stay in Carrabelle are either condos inland,
marina condos.or B&B-style accommodations. Repeat and spur-of-the-
moment visitors all have had a real challenge finding lodging. Visitors
to the Franklin Correctional Institute stay as far away as Apalachicola,
Panacea and Tallahassee. The addition of these 30 rooms will be a
major improvement to Carrabelle's visitor services.

Carrabelle To Add 30 Places To Stay

Watkins Motel To Open In
October
Fast-Tracking Will "Git 'Er Done"
BY SKIP FRINK
There is no doubt that Carrabelle needs more places to stay. Owner Ben,
Watkins, with General Contractor Taunton Truss Company, has target-
ed October for completion of a new motel on Highway 98.
Located next to, and behind, Hog Wild BBQ, the new business will .
have 30 rooms and parking for boats and trailers of guests. Jim Brown, I
former Carrabelle mayor and Project Superintendent, gave details of..
the construction: "We will pave the drive with concrete, 'so there will
not be the problem of trailer tires digging into hot asphalt. All the aux-
iliary parking on the 'back' lot will be graveled and packed.
"The project is 'fast track' to an extent, and we hope the weather con-,_
tinues to cooperate with the October deadline." What Is Fast Track
Construction? From Arthur O'Leary, FAIA, MRIAI:
"The normal process of construction scheduling involves the perform-
ance of a series of discrete functions, one after the other, in a predeter-
mined sequential order. The customary logical order of these functions
is programming, design, governmental approvals, bidding and negotia-
tion, contract award, construction, and finally, completion. The usual
way of shortening the time scale is by increasing productivity, that is,
by completing each function as efficiently as possible and starting each
new phase immediately upon completion of the preceding phase.
Everything is done in proper order and no time is wasted.'" e *' 1 -
"Another way of saving total elapsed tIme would be by coriypFssion of
the time schedule. That is, by overlapping some of the functions, doing
two things at the same time." The extreme of fast tracking is 3-shift
around-the-clock work, not doable in Carrabelle for a number of rea-
sons. The motel will be constructed during normal working hours, with
the least "down" time between phases possible.

Old Is Where It's At
But It Takes Getting Used TQ, '
Humor
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
Everywhere I go today the world seems to be filled with people, who,
like myself, are very old or almost dead.
The grocery store, even, is being staffed by people who are almost dead.
I think that all the young people today are probably so wacked-out on
drugs that they can't pass a pee test. The over 55 age group is the fastest
growing age group in America's new emerging labor force.
The guy checking out my groceries at the store the other day along with


the bagboy, were both older than me. Now that's scary.
I put my groceries on the automatic sliding shelf and the old man starts
running them across the magic price reading thing-a-ma-gig.
Everything is going fine until this chicken won't beep. He swishes it
across the magic window three of four more times at varying rates of
speed-but not a beep out of the chicken. He shakes the chicken two
or three times, as if there must be something wrong with whatever is
inside of the chicken that makes the beeper beep-but, no response
from the chicken. He then presses the chicken into the magic window
and puts his body weight on top of it to try and get it closer to the magic
window reading whose that is inside somewhere. Nothing. The gray
haired, partially bald clerk holds the chicken up in front of him and
shakes his head negatively. "What is wrong with this chicken?" he
mumbles. "I gtiess that I will have to ringit up by the code numbers."
He stretches his arms out in front of him as far as they will extend; he
tilts his head up, squints a little and makes an attempt to read the code
numbers on the price tag of the chicken through one of the sections on
his trifocals. "My god" he says. "Ted Williams, who could see the
threads on a curve ball coming at him at one hundred and ten miles an
hour, couldn't read this damn thing."
He lowers the chicken down towards his waist, turns his head slightly
to one side and tries to read the numbers from out the corner of his
glasses. No luck. He holds the chicken in one hand and then tries to
adjust his glasses on his face, up and down, with his other hand. No go.
He takes his glasses off, momentarily and tries to scan the chicken bare-
eyed, but it's still no go. He raises and lowers the chicken-still at arms
length-while he nods his head up and down in an opposite sequence
from the movement of the chicken. It could be a focusing problem.
Doesn't work.
He takes his glasses off his head and runs them back and forth between
his eyes and the chicken-nothing' Finally he lays the chicken down on
the counter and attempts to read the code numbers by placing his glass-
es down on top of the price tag on the chicken, as if his trifocals are a
magnifying glass. This doesn't work.
"Let me see that chicken; maybe I can read it," I offer. "I think that it
is three dollars and twenty-five cents," I say.
"I know that," he says. "It is not the price I need. I need all of them lit-
tle numbers there on the bottom of the price tag, next to all those squig-
gly lines."
"Oh, here you mean ... okay, let's see four, six, nine, seven, seven,
three, one, two, eight, eight, eight, four, one, two, three, eight, nine, one,
two, one. That's it. Wouldn't it be easier to just ring up the price?"
"Oh God! Don't even talk about that. That's a book in itself. So, is that
it?"
"No. I don't think that you got my tomato there."
"Okay, that will be $149.52." '
"Did you get my tomato?"
The man doesn't look at me and repeats the total bill once again. I
notice that he has a buzzer in his ear. My wife has a buzzer for each ear.
When you see a person with a buzzer in their ear that means that they
only read lips. The buzzer in a person's ear doesn't really do anything;
it is, more or less, a symbol or a sign of deafness. It is only there to let
other people know that this person can't hear a damn thing. It is like a
pair of sunglasses on a blind person. But because.I have experience liv-
ing with a person with buzzers in her ears, I know how to handle this
situation. I tap the clerk on the shoulder when he turns and looks at
me, I say very slowly and in a loud voice; "Did ... you ... get ... my ...
tomato?"
"You got a potato?"
"No, did you get my tomato?"
"You don't have to yell at me, I ain't deaf for God's sake."
"I'm sorry." I reach down and pick up the tomato that is lying on the
conveyor belt. I hold it up and roll it around in front of the man's face.
"That is not a potato," he criticizes.
"I know. It's a tomato. Did you ring it up?"
"Is it yours?"
"Not yet, but I would like it to be-one day."
"You want me to ring that up?"
"Would you please?"

Monticello Mayor Julie
Conley Announces Bid For
District 10 House Seat
Promises campaign in tradition of 'Sen. Graham and sees urgent need
to help Legislature better understand needs of local residents
Mayor Julie Conley of Monticello, perceiving "an urgent need for local
officials to move into leadership roles in state government," announced
her candidacy Tuesday for the District 10 Florida House o'f
Representatives seat being vacated by Will Kendrick, R-Carr4belle..
"There are too few legislators coming from the ranks of elected.city and
county officials, especially smaller cities and, rural counties," 'the'
Democratic candidate said. "I believe people want to see more of us
move into the ranks of the Legislature and really look after their inter-
ests. We're closer to the people. : '
"It's particularly disappointing that there aren't more- of us in the
Legislature right now to work to assure that changes to our property
taxes are fair and that there are no unintended consequences for small-
er Panhandle cities and counties." '.
Mayor Conley, a 30-year-resident of Monticello, said she's taking inspi- -
ration for part of her campaign from U.S. Sen. Bob Graham. She plans'
to spend at least one day each month working a new job somewhereini-
the sprawling district, which includes all, or part, of 10 separate coun-
ties.
"I anticipate it will work as well for me as it did for the Senator'and pro-'-
vide me with greater understanding and insight into the lives and con-s
cerns of working people from Franklin County to Marion C ou nr\." s he
said. "I'm looking forward to participating in my first work day s.on." -
"I'm here today because I want to see the election of more state law-
makers with a strong background of experience and service to people
living in our small communities," said Carrabelle Mayor Mel Kelly. "I-
support the election of Mayor Conley."
Another local official hailed the candidate for her effective advocacy for
her city and county, especially while she has served as chair of the
Jefferson County Legislative Committee.
"I've worked with Mayor Conley bringing new business to the county
and other projects. I watched her. work hard with the Legislature.to get;.
state support for our projects." said Jefferson County. Commission


Chairman J.N. Tuten, who also serves on the legislative committee. "I
can tell you that she was not only effective, she was so effective that
when the governor got out his veto pen a few days ago and started,.
killing turkeys, not a one of the mayor's projects earmarked in the state.:,
budget got cut. Not a one."
In addition to providing a stronger voice for the rural counties and ,
small towns that make up the sprawling district, Mayor Conley said she
intends to stress "economic development that is compatible with the .
values of the people in this part of Florida."
Bringing jobs to District 10 will be a top priority, said the mayor, who -
also serves as the director of economic development for Jefferson
County. But as she worked to develop economic opportunities, she
said, she would remain mindful of the need to balance economic prof-
its with environmental conservation.
"We have to promote the economy but we also have to have the courage
to say 'No' when the long-term well-being of one our communities is
,at stake," she said.
Mayor Conley's achievements include successfully lobbying the state "
for millions of dollars in county projects, negotiating a water re-use
agreement between a private business and state and local government,
securing a $250,000 grant for a business bringing new jobs to the coun-'.
ty industrial park, and helping to create a new tourism promotion fund.

Old Is Where It's At from Page 4
"No problem."
The man puts the tomato on a special scale. The computer identifies the-
tomato as a tomato and suggests a starting price or bid. The optimum-'\
possible price appears on the price screen after a series of bids from e-',
bay have been calculated into the final quote.
"How much is that tomato?"
"Twelve dollars and nineteen cents."
"You're kidding?" ,
"No, that's what the machine says. I think that they had a blizzard in;'
Paraguay this month or something. All the tomatoes got killed." '
"All except that one."
"I guess. You want it or not?"
"Yeah, I've been planning on having a tomato all this year. I already A
bought some bacon, white bread, mayonnaise and lettuce. It wouldn't
really be a BLT without the tomato."
"Okay-got the tomato; now where are those potatoes that you said'.'
you had?"
"I don't have any potatoes. I can only afford so many vegetables in one
year. This year it's that tomato."
"I get ya."
"Would you like me to take this out to your car?" asks the bagboy who
looks like Mark Twain's grandfather. I watch the old man bagboy as he '
struggles to lift the bag off the counter and place it into my shopping
cart. As he lowers the bag into the cart the upper half of his body fol- ,,
lows the bag into the cart and his feet come off the ground behind him. n
"Nuewww. I think I can handle that myself, but thank-you anyway,
sonny," I,say. .. ,
As we exit the store, I say to my wife: "Did'you see the .price of that'
tomato?" ,
"We forgot to get a potato?"


"No, I saiddid you see the price of that tomato?" '


She rushes her thumb up to her ear and begins spinning things around r.
on her buzzer. "Holy Cow! What are you trying to do-blow my brains '"
out! Just speak to me in a normal voice. Don't yell!"
"Honey, I simply said,-Did you see the price of that tomato? That's -
all Isaid."
"Okay!-,- ycgoodnessi you are such a baby. If you want potatoes, let's,;
just go back inside and get: some."- -' -... ..

Strengthening Our

Budget Process

BY CONGRESSMAN ALLEN BOYD (D-FL)

Since I came to Washington over 10 years ago, I have been very vocal
about the need for honesty and accountability in our government, and
a key component of an honest and accountable government is a
Congress that is clear and upfront about its fiscal priorities. If we can't.
shoot straight with the American people about our federal budget-
how much our government programs tost and how we are going to pay
for them-then we shouldn't be here.

Not only have the Administration and its supporters in Congress failed
in this respect, they also have failed to act as responsible stewards of our
hard-earned tax dollars. Over the last six years, they increased spending.
levels by over $260 billion and added $3 trillion to the national debt.
Spending more than we take in is an unsustainable path that will dam-
age our economy, our standard of living, and ultimately, our national
security, and this irresponsible fiscal policy is exactly what the Blue
Dog Coalition is working to put an end to in the 110th Congress.

Recently, the Blue Dogs introduced the "Blue Dog Fiscal.
Accountability Package," three pieces of legislation that would further
restore fiscal discipline to the federal government after years of budget-
ary mismanagement and irresponsible deficit spending. -These bills
reflect the core principles-fiscal responsibility, government accounta-
bility, and honesty in the budget process-that are the very foundation
of the Blue Dog Coalition.

The primary component of the Blue Dog Fiscal Accountability
Package is a balanced budget amendment. This constitutional amend-
ment would hold the federal government to the same, common sense
standard as the 49 states that already require an annual balanced budg-
et, including our state of Florida. Further, this amendment would pro-
hibit cuts in Social Security benefits from ever being used to balance the
budget. Also, the balanced budget requirement can be waived with a
three-fifths vote in the House and the Senate to ensure the necessary
flexibility in cases of war, natural disaster, or severe economic down-
turn. The.implementation of a balanced budget amendment is critical
if we are ever going to restore honesty and accountability to the fiscal
process.

The Blue Dogs also are working to build on the efforts we have already
made this year to require the federal government to live within its
means with the return to pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) spending rules. The
second piece of legislation would reinstate PAYGO rules into law and
put into place additional caps on spending by the federal government.
Used together, these proven effective policies were instrumental in pro-
ducing budget surpluses in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

The last piece of legislation presents reasonable solutions to longstand-
ing, and rarely mentioned, problems in Congress. All too often, mem-
bers of Congress are forced to vote on legislation without knowing
Exactly how much the legislation will cost the American people. This
contradicts my beliefs and those of my fellow Blue Dogs. This meas-
ure takes steps to allow sufficient time to examine legislation and deter-
mine its actual cost. This bill also would ensure that members of
Congress have at least three days to review the final text of any bill
before voting. It is unacceptable for members of Congress to vote on
legislation, often hundreds of pages long, with little or no time to
understand how it will affect the people we represent, and the Blue Dog
bill will put an end to this practice.

As the leader of the Blue Dog Coalition, I am firmly committed to
restoring the fiscal integrity of our great country, and all of these meas-
ures are real steps toward accomplishing this goal. If enacted into law,
these reforms will help to strengthen our economy and reduce the
deficit, thereby increasing national saving and promoting economic
growth. I am eager to continue working in Congress to tackle our
financial problems now so that we can all enjoy economic health in the
future.

Alexander The Great

356-323

BY RICHARD E. NOBLE

Alexander is known as "the Great", according to the prominent histo- ":
rian Will Cuppy, because he killed more people of more different kinds ',
than any other man of his times.

One thing that one should keep in mind when reading about ancient 2
peoples is that the great majority of them and their rulers were out of -
their ever-loving minds. Alexander was no exception. His father, Philip ,c
of Macedonia, was a raving, alcoholic lunatic. He and young :'
Alexander had numerous fist fights, and on several occasions tried to '-
stab one another to death. Dad always felt cheated because "he never ;,
done- got no education", so he hired the unemployed, fleeing refugee -:
from Athens, Aristotle, to learn his little boy.

One of the high points in the life of Alexander the Great was that he Z
was taught for a couple of years by this famed philosopher, Aristotle.
This seems to have had as much of an effect on little Alexander as early .
Christian training had on Adolf Hitler. Aristotle, you will remember, is
the great teacher who taught that the brain is an organ that exist mere- '\
ly for the purpose of cooling the blood and is not involved in the think-
ing process. This is only true of certain persons, says Willy Cuppy.

Alexander's Mom, Olympias, was a cutesy, herself. She liked snakes,
and had them roaming all over the castle. And as Willy Cuppy says;
"Having real snakes at home does an alcoholic no good, it just compli-
cates matters." She had her husband assassinated, and then boiled one
of his several other wives, alive.

To complicate Alexander's rise to "Greatness" coming from this back- :
ground of dysfunctional family life, he also seems to have been bur-
dened with a "sexual identity" problem. But being a Greek in those
.good-old-days, no one noticed.

He got drunk one evening and killed one of his best friends. This made
him cry-not the best friend, Alex-the next day of course; he was too
drunk the day he actually performed the dirty deed to cry, or laugh for
that matter. He also crucified the physician of Hephaestion, his room-
mate.

Alexander the Great was a real sweetheart. One can only marvel at
anyone calling this man "Great". How about Alexander the Terrible, or
Alexander the Lunatic, or Alexander the Sick and Deranged. Both he
and his roommate died of fever and drunkenness. Lucky for all of us,
he died at thirty three. I should think that Alexander was the kind of kid
who could have changed the Pope's mind on the value of abortion.

But let's not leave Alexander the Moron on a negative note. For some
mystical reason he didn't persecute the Jews and was responsible for
introducing the eggplant to Europe..What a guy!

Officer's Anniversary

Commemoration
A commemoration of the thirtieth anniversary of the death of Officer
John David Patton, the only Carrabelle police officer killed in the line
of duty, will be held Saturday, July 7 at 4 p.m. at the new wildlife park
on north Highway 67 named in his honor.
Patton was shot and killed answering a domestic abuse call on Highway
67 near Avenue G in Carrabelle on Saturday, July 9, 1977. He had
served for one year with the Carrabelle Police Department. Officer
Patton, 28, was married with two children.
The public is invited to attend the anniversary commemoration and
tour the park beginning at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 7. Some friends
and family members plan to be in attendance for the flag raising, honor
guard ceremony, sign dedication and words of remembrance sched-
uled for 4 p.m.
The land, granted by Florida Communities Trust, has been developed
as a nature park. Phase One features wildlife trails, pavilion, picnic
tables, restroom and parking and a garden. Further development is
planned, and a grand opening with a community-wide celebration for
the completed park will be scheduled to honor the surviving Patton
Family later this year.

Thanks For The Birds
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
I just returned from a visit to "my hometown." It was a tough .and
rugged place to be raised and it hasn't changed any. It was an emotion-
al ride over the hilly countryside of laughter and tears. Laughing with
all of my remaining friends about the good old days and tearing-up over
the living conditions and circumstances that some Americans are
forced to live under.
Actually, in many ways, conditions are pretty much the same as those
that I was reared under. My old friends see the town through their sixty
year old eyes as better then and horrid now. But Christmas trees were a
lot bigger then and girls a lot prettier than they are today, at least as I
remember it.
But certain things definitely are different. The tenements and the
streets-the patchwork of potholes and tar, aren't that much different.
But crime has been escalated to the unimaginable. One of my old bud-
dies owns a business down in the "combat" zone. He has, oll-up steel
doors, no windows, and surveillance cameras that provide a picture of


the streets outside so that the patrons inside can keep a watch on their
cars while they are eating their pizza or having a beer. My hometown
has been voted twice as the stolen car capital of America.
I stayed at my friend's apartment which was one block up from the
street where I spent my first twenty-seven years. All night long 'the
police cruisers race about town' screaming their warnings. The emer-
gency vehicles, ambulances, rescue vehicles and fire trucks blast their
sirens; beeps, screams, battle cries and horns blast all through the night.
My buddy's police scanners, at the shop and at home, keep a constant
report of where the action is. Not because he is a crime buff but to keep
tabs on how close the bad guys are to his home or business, so that he
can get out his own personal fire power and/or take protective steps.
This is not Beirut, Lebanon, Jerusalem or Baghdad. This is "my old
hometown" ... once a part of the industrial capital of not only the good
old U.S.A., but the world.
As you might have guessed, I woke. up early every morning. I got
dressed and went walking down the narrow, dark second floor tene-
ment steps and out onto the street. It was shocking. The sun was shin-
ning, birds were singing, and hundreds of little kids with backpacks
were banging about, playing tag and rough-housing on every corner
waiting on the school buses. I laughed as I thought about it. The sun up
in the sky has no choice-it must shine wherever God commands. The
kids are stuck. They can't choose where they will be born. But the birds
could fly someplace else; but they don't. They were singing their merry
songs, just as if they were in an apple orchard or blueberry patch in
Paradise. I said to myself as my eyes, moistened and glassed over,
"Thank God for the birds." They have guts. The whole morning was
ablaze with their music. Even the clattering of the crows sounded
sweet. If I had a camera I would have taken a picture of them propped
up like clothes pins on the drooping telephone wires, or lining up in the
crevices and window sills of the tenements or perching on the rims of
the open garbage cans that lined the sidewalks.
The sweetest sound I ever heard.
I thought of them as whispering their little songs of hope into every
school child's ear. And I knew, though I don't remember it now, that
they must have been whispering to me many, many years ago, way back
when :.. in "my hometown."

When "Grouper' Is Not
Grouper
The issue of illegal species substitution has never been more relevant.
Many Florida restaurants have come under fire in recent months,
accused of switching high-priced species like grouper with inexpensive
alternatives, including imported basa and tilapia.
While fish fraud is repeatedly making headlines in the Sunshine State,
Will Gergits said the problem extends to the entire industry, and he's
got the DNA evidence to prove it.
Gergits, managing member of business development and marketing for
Therion International, an animal-identity laboratory in Saratoga, N.Y.,
shared his techniques with 60 attendees of the Fish Species Substitution
conference at the International Boston Seafood Show yesterday. He
says DNA profile testing can prove, with 99.9 percent accuracy, a fish
species' true identity, whether it's fresh, frozen or cooked.
"Any high-priced fish has the potential of being substituted with some-
thing else," Gergits said. "It can happen at any point along the supply
chain."
Proving so requires cutting-edge science. A species' DNA, or deoxyri-
bonucleic acid, has specific "markers" or "primers" that are unique to
that species or group of animals.
During his presentation, Gergits focused on what the industry can do
to prevent this illegal practice.
"As importers and suppliers, one way you can help is to bring us whole
fish so we can establish 'standard' species for a database," Gergits said.
"This way we can ensure that the science is not lying.
"We don't want to be whistle-blowers," Gergits added. "We want to
work with the industry to do better quality control."


Safeguarding Records
Before Disaster Strikes, Inventory And Record Your
Personal Property
Since hurricane season is here, be sure to inventory and digitally record
your home's contents to avoid confusion and unnecessary loss should
disaster strike.
The hurricane season is promising to be devastating and most people
are ready with their disaster supply kit and have planned their evacua-
tion route. But many people forget to inventory their home's contents.
Don't let your home's contents become a fading memory-develop a
hurricane readiness checklist that includes creating a digital record of
all your data. Helpful resource sites such as Save Your Data (www.save
yourdata.org) outline resources you need to consider to be fully pre-
pared should any disaster strike.
Today's home computers store everything from invaluable addresses, to
precious baby photos, to back taxes, to home movies, to your favorite
tunes. But you should also create a digital inventory of your home's
contents and valuables using a simple spreadsheet program.
First, use your digital camera to inventory your home's contents, and
then download the photos to your computer. Next, create a room-by-
room spreadsheet. You should also scan your important documents,
including insurance policies, banking and investment records, tax
forms, and create digital files of them as well.
Taking some time now will save you headaches and heartaches in the
future. By creating a digital record, you won't have to recall your
home's contents from memory should you have to fill out complicated
insurance documents. Your photos and spreadsheets will make the job
much easier and less stressful, leaving you to focus on more immediate
needs like your family's safety and security.
But you're not finished yet. Once you create a digital record, consider
an off-site file backup service for your computer files. Memory sticks,
floppies and CDs can easily be lost, damaged or stolen and could fall
into the wrong hands. But an off-site backup service is secure, reliable
and accessible no matter where you are. Even if you are evacuated, dis-
placed or relocated, you know your data will remain safe and that secu-
rity is priceless.
