Sadness At A Death

Too Soon
BY SUE CRONKITE
Tyler Eddy, who died tragically while scalloping in St. Joe Bay ne
Black's Island July 8, left a big hole where the rest of his brief li
should have been.

Scalloping, swimming, snorkeling, and especially baseball were some
of the sports Tyler, his brother Alan, and parents Bob and Toni, often
did together. They wore snorkels and flippers as they dug around on the
bottom of the water, searching for scallops.
Tyler's mother said she and Tyler were together in the water and they
split up. "He went on one side of the boat and I went on the other. The
next thing I remember, I stood up waving a scallop and heard a loud
scream from Bob who was holding Tyler. The rest is a blur."
Paul Beasley, with the Gulf County sheriff's office, reported that Bob

Groundbreaking held
Wednesday, June 20
BY SKIP FRINK
From the Chronicle story of the
City Commission meeting
February this year: "John
Mclnnis spoke for the City, offer-
ing a 21-acre parcel for $10 per
year rent...Mclnnis explained
that the city could apply for a
CDBG grant in the amount of
$650,000 which would fund all
the infrastructure (roads,
drainage, water, sewer, power and
building materials) for the proper-
ty. Hexaport would furnish the
installation labor on the first
building (60,000 square feet) and
the City would own it. If at some
time in the future the manufactur-
er were to leave town, the build-
ings would stay property of
Carrabelle."
On Wednesday, June 20, a sizable
crowd gathered in the mid-day

sun off Airport Road in what is
now destined to become
Carrabelle's industrial park.
Participants attended from the
office of US Senator Bill Nelson,
State Representative Will
Kendrick, the Franklin County
Commission and Carrabelle City
Commission. Good eats and bev-
erages followed at the newly-
opened Pirate's Tiki Hut
Restaurant at the end of Timber
Island Road.
The mass showing of politicians
was probably due to the employ-
ment boost this venture is set to
bring. The prospect of good
employment has struck a note far
and wide: at the July commission
meeting, Mr. McInnis indicated
with his hands spread 7 or 8 inch-
es apart that "this many" applica-
tions for employment have been
dropped off at City Hall already.
Rumors abound, but reliable
sources agree that the average
hourly rate of pay for employees
will hover around the $15 mark,
plus benefits. And possibly the
best news of all is that the compa-
ny is in hopes of completing the
main building in October.

Weems Memorial Hospital
Use it or lose it! Countywide sales tax or shut it down?
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
SIn observing our national situation
one can not help but to notice how
fleeting and fickle are the fortunes
of the celebrated and prosperous
S in our democratic society. --
Yesterday's patriotic hero or -
admired personality almost with
the flip of a coin turns into today's

months there seemed to be a pre-
ponderance of praise, cheers and positive spirit. Though the task would
be difficult, the road to reasonable success was just around the bend.
S And what other choice was there? Suddenly the talk is of "crisis" and
catastrophe" and abandonment and a total rehashing of past deci-
sions. What happened?
f Chuck Colvert, last month's hospital's savior, appears before the Board
at this meeting on the 3rd of July very much subdued. Mr. Colvert was
before the Board to update the Commission when sparks began to fly
and rockets with red glare began exploding; but first the calm before the
storm.
"There are a couple of things that I must ask you and get you to
approve," Mr. Colvert suggested pacifically. "The first is a settlement
that your Attorney Michael Shuler has worked out with AHCA-
Agency for Health Care Administration. After much deliberation and
much discussion between Mr. Shuler and Mr. Dearborn, the Attorney
for AHCA, we were very concerned about the amount that the hospi-
tal could possibly owe AHCA for past sins. Mr. Shuler has done an out-
standing job in negotiating in the amount of $194,000 to be paid back
in equal quarterly payments over the next four years. That is the only
liability that the hospital has from January 1, 2006-back. We were

Mr. Shuler then asked the Board to authorize an agreement to settle on
this issue along with an additional $125,000 for Hospital improvements
Kicks that would be necessary in the next couple of years anyway. The
$125,000 will go into hospital improvements rather than into payment
M s i for debt. This was a part of the settlement and a concession on the part
usic of AHCA to Franklin County. A motion was offered to approve the
Attorney's request. The motion was approved.
"The hospital is requesting additional funding for the remainder of the
fiscal year in the amount of $150,000," Mr. Colvert continued. "There

Briefs


July 3, 2007
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE

Bill Mahan-Franklin
County Extension Director
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) Update: During their
June 13-14, 2007 meeting in
Melbourne, the FWC approved
the following proposed rule
changes;
Traps and trap debris: The draft
rules would help spiny lobster,
stone crab and blue crab fishers
recover their traps following
major storms by letting licensed
trappers designate people to
recover and possess their traps
when the governor and the FWC
declare an emergency. The new
rules would also exempt local,
state or federal officials from hav-
ing to get FWC approval before
removing traps, derelict traps and
trap debris from areas where trap-
ping is prohibited. A final public
hearing will be held during
FWC's Sept. 12-14, 2007 meeting
in St. Petersburg.
Alligator management: The
FWC decided not to allow home-
owners to dispose of small nui-
sance alligators on their own,
they must still contact FWC.
They also turned down proposals
on statewide permits for recre-
ational alligator hunters and
allowing daytime recreational
alligator' hunting or the use of
small-caliber handguns to dis-
patch alligators. They did
approve the concept of using arti-
ficial lures to reel in alligators
during statewide harvests and
removing the 6-9-foot closed slot
limit on gators taken in the
Private Lands Alligator
Management Program. FWC
staff will prepare appropriate rule
proposals for future Commission
consideration.
Blue crab emergency rule:
Effective July 1, 2007 and until
July 1, 2008, no blue crab
endorsements, except for those
endorsements that were active
during the 2006-2007 fiscal year;
shall be renewed or replaced.
Persons or corporations holding
an active 06-07 endorsement or
an immediate family member of
that person must request renewal
of the endorsement before
September 30, 2007.
Gulf of Mexico Fishery
Management Council (GMFMC)
Update: The GMFMC
announced that it will convene its
Ad Hoc Review Panel for Red
Drum in New Orleans on July
23, 2007 beginning at 1:00 p.m.
The panel will assess the avail-
ability of information needed to
conduct a SEDAR stock assess-
ment for red drum and propose
data collection activities that
should be carried out in 2008.
The next GMFMC meeting is
July 30 Aug 2, 2007 in San
Antonio, TX.
Derelict Vessel Update:
Attached for your information is
a flow-diagram, 'Local Govern-
ment Approaches to Derelict

Conservation Clinic Center for
Governmental Responsibility at
the University of Florida's
College of Law. There is also a
21-page report titled 'Local
Government Authority to
Remove Abandoned and Derelict
Vessels' that is available. The flow
diagram and report are the result
of a request several Sea Grant
Agents made (including me) to
the FL Sea Grant Program for
help on dealing with aban-
doned/derelict vessels. If you
would like a copy of the full
report please let me know and I'll
get it to you.
County 4-H Camp at Camp
Timpo9chee: This year's annual
4-H Camp (June 18 21) at Camp

from Franklin County and a total
of 112 youth. In addition we had
two local youth attend 4-H Camp
Cherry Lake last week.

Appreciation for Elder Care
Services for their work in
Franklin County. This was
approved by the Board.
2 Provide Board copy of form
signed by Chairman that was sub-
mitted to Dept. of Revenue in
compliance with the actions of
the Legislature. The Clerk and I
have been notifying the county
departments and Constitutional
offices of the need to reduce their
budgets, and those are being
worked on. Therefore, the Budget
books that are being passed out
today contain the budgets origi-
nally submitted. By the time the
Board holds its first budget work-
shop we will have revised budg-
ets, and we will be making rec-
ommendations on the funding of
the non-governmental organiza-
tions. Any further budget direc-
tion by the Board would be
appreciated.
3 Inform Board the Parking area
for the Bald Point end of the
Beach Renourishment has been
staked out, and we are waiting for
DEP Park personnel to inspect
the site to make sure there are no
threatened or endangered species
in the area. We are still working
with Steve Fling to create a 100

on the west end.
4 Inform the Board that Ms.
Sharon Jenkins, 27 year employ-
ee as courthouse janitor, has
developed significant health
problems and has applied for dis,
ability.
5 Inform the Board that

Ms. C.J. Pipkins, Asst. Exec.
Director, who Commissioner
Lockley meet at the FAC confer-
ence. She said the Authority
already serves 20 counties in the
state, with Wakulla, Leon,
Jefferson, and Jackson being the
closest. If the Board has the
Authority work in Franklin
County, the Authority would
issue mortgage revenue bonds.
According the documents
Jackson County signed, "The
County shall never be required to
levy ad valorem taxes on any
property to pay the principal and
interest on the Bonds, or to make
any other payments ... The
County is not obligated for any.
expenditure to pay the costs of
the issuance of such bonds. The
Bonds are limited, special obliga-
tions and iwill-notrconistitute a
debt to the state of Florida or the
Authority, but will be payable
solely from payments made from
the revenues generated from the
Program."
Some time in the last year, the
Authority sold $31 Million dol-
lars worth of bonds. They have
used most of those funds, and
will 'have to seek another bond
issue before they would have
money available for Franklin
County. If the Board is interest-
ed, it needs to direct staff to coor-
dinate with the Authority and
schedule a public hearing to con-
sider the issue. The earliest the
hearing could be held is
September. This Board approved
this request.
6 Inform the Board that the
Small County Technical
Assistance Service has provided
the county with an additional
$4,000 to help pay for consultants
on the Alligator Point project.
The SCTAS is a part of the
Florida Counties Foundation.
7 Does the Board want to con-
tinue in the Small County
Coalition? Membership dues are
based upon population. Next
years dues are $3,041.60.
A request was made by commis-
sion Sanders to have a repiesenta-
tive from The Small county
Coalition appear before the
Board and explain its recently ele-
vated dues before any approval.
8 The City of Carrabelle has a
grant to run sewer into the
McKissack Beach area at no cost
to the homeowners. Since this is

the county to make it mandatory
that every existing residence in
McKissack Beach area hook up
to sewer if the City makes it avail-

County to collect the necessary

those are private streets. The
Board approved this action.

The Asian Warehouse, Eastpoint

New Store On The Block
BY DIANE DYAL
If you live in Franklin County you might have noticed there is a new
store open on Highway 98 in Eastpoint next to Badcock's and across
from the vacant nursing home which is brightly painted yellow with
green trim. It is The Asian Warehouse, also known as Teak Imports
USA, owned by Jerry Poland. He's been in business since 1996 and
started with a store in Hawaii, then Naples, Florida and now in
Eastpoint.
It is a unique furniture store that sells furniture and some accessories.
It is a different type of store-different from your average furniture
store. It has a lot of one-of-a-kind unique pieces. Most of the furniture
comes from Indonesia and it is all solid teak, which is a stable, tropical
hard wood and all the furniture is hand-made. He sells approximately
half patio and garden furniture and half interior furniture. There are
also some exotic.stone carvings and some antiques.
Teak is an oily wood, used on boats, won't rot and the bugs won't eat
it. At his factory in Indonesia he can do custom orders at regular prices.
Jerry goes to Indonesia once every three to four months. You can check
out the store in Eastpoint or access the website at: www.teakimport-
susa.com.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor:
It was with great pride and satisfaction that I attended Gov. Charlie
Crist's recent Climate Change Summit in Miami.
As stewards of Florida's natural resources, we at the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission not only applaud the governor's
efforts, we pledge to join him in his fight to protect our state's natural
wonders.
The governor has brought hundreds of leaders to the table to begin
addressing the complex issue of climate change. This is no small feat.
Climate change may affect our peninsular state, with,its magnificent
coral reefs, regal Florida panthers and gentle manatees, more than any
other state.
The future of our state's fish and wildlife depends on a wise leadership
and a motivated public. This is a time for all proud Floridians to come
together, work hard and set an example for the rest of the world.
I believe the impact of this summit will reverberate throughout the
state, the country and the world. We must resolve that we will rally
behind leaders such as Gov. Crist to preserve a rich natural heritage for
future generations of Floridians. Let's do it.
Sincerely,
Rodney Barreto
Chairman, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission


Letter To The Editor
To Whom It May Concern:
While visiting the island last week our boat was robbed twice in the
same week at two different docks.
The first night we lost some rods and reels and the second time they
stole the electronics.
I posted the warning on Florida Sportsman Forum and the responses
were amazing. Others had had the same problems and didn't under-
stand as I don't, why there aren't any patrols on the water like there is
on the island. The security guard told us that they had even had out-
board motors stole from boats visiting the island.
I would ask you to at least put a warning in the paper so that others will
lock up before they leave their boat for the night and at least make oth-
ers aware of the problem.
Thank you for your time,
William Brookins

Carrabelle City Council Meeting July 10, 2007

Wharf Plan Sunk-Back

To Redesign

Commission Sends Plans Back to Drawing Board
BY SKIP FRINK
With one or two more notches of firmness than she normally shows,
Mayor Kelly told ECT that they could take their plans and redo them.
The company did the original design for the Carrabelle Wharf on
Marine Street about a year ago. That roughly coincided with the start
of ECT's Tillie Miller Park project across from the Senior Center,
which is complete and in use.
Unfortunately, no physical progress has happened at the Wharf. Ken
Busen, representing ECT, was present to bear the brunt of the commis-
sion censure and to accept the order to have a total redesign ready by
the August 2 meeting. He and the mayor and city attorney discussed
the Submerged Land Lease issue at great length, its expense and the
fact that it may be unnecessary. It, maritime permitting, and grant-
supervising agency questions over parts of the plan, has caused the long
delay.
The project was presented as a 3-phase effort. Phase 1 was to be 2 boat
ramps where the old ferry dock is located, a traffic circle, off site park-
ing, remodeling of the Coast Guard building for a dockmaster office,
and a boardwalk running 710 feet from there to the other end of the
concrete seawall. Phase 2 would add wet slips out from the pavilion.
Phase 3 would add a separate, much stronger and longer T-pier for
commercial fishing boat use. The charge to redesign is limited.to Phase
1 only: boat ramps, vehicle movement and parking planning. It seems
at this point that an incomplete Phase 1 may be the end of the project.
Opening the meeting with her traditional Mayor's Special Awards,
Mayor Mel presented her awards to 3, followed by a police department
promotion.

Steve Allen was cited for outstanding volunteer work for the city, specif-
ically for Planning and Zoning management and Waterfronts Florida
organization. David Butler, of Gulf State Community Bank, had his
volunteer tent-raising effort on the occasion of the Patton Park dedica-
tion noted, thus possibly avoiding cases of heatstroke on a very hot day.
John McInnis, City Administrator, earned his award for his history of
service to the city.
Craig Kincaid, of our police department, had another stripe pinned on
by Joe Ham, Assistant Chief of Police, and Mclnnis. He now holds the
rank of Corporal. Craig came to Carrabelle from 29 years of service in
Blue Island, Illinois (and he looks like a kid!). He has completed his
first year here. Mr. McInnis, in his remarks, noted that Craig holds a
law degree. An interesting fact from the internet: "The population den-
sity (of Blue Island) was 5,822.4/mi2". That means that Corporal
Kincaid's Chicago southside suburb town had about 6 times the people
density of Carrabelle. For 29 years.
The mayor listed occasions and events, recent or upcoming: The John
David Patton Park dedication, which "was Deputy Chief Joe Ham's
idea" (see in this issue), the Carrabelle Waterfronts Florida kickoff (in
this issue), and the police promotion. Commissioner Parmenas noted
that budget talks start soon. Richard Sands asked for and got a vote for
the city to donate funds to the family of a recent drowning victim. He
also commended the Big Bend Saltwater Classic fishing tournament
recently field at the Carrabelle Boat Club for its attention to security
measures, and for their outreach to 30 active-duty service personnel
who were able to compete at no charge and were hooked up with cap-
tains who hosted them aboard for the weekend. Commissioner Tyre
did not attend.
Planning and Zoning reported that on July 19 a joint P&Z and City
Commission group will review the Land Development Code document
produced by a University of South Florida consultant. The LDC man-
dates restrictions on development, and when put in place will become
law.
Attorney Cox assured the assemblage that if the Hexaport/GreenSteel
factory project does not succeed, the City is legally covered and will not
suffer. He noted that ATV vehicles are not allowed on paved roads in
Carrabelle, but are OK on unpaved. In reference to the question of golf
cart use on our roads, he said that our busiest roadways, 98 and 67, are
not under our control. Commissioner Sands took the opportunity to
make two statements: "We are going to enforce (that drivers have) dri-
ver's licenses on all vehicles", and with a serious tone, "Evading arrest
is a felony".
The second reading and approval received a positive vote from the com-
mission to rezone 3 parcels.(14.99 acres) of land on Highway 67 from
Agricultural to Single-Family Residential.
First reading of an ordinance establishing the Seaside Village
Community Development District. This is the 265-unit subdivision in
northeast Carrabelle by Pinki Jackel and Judy Miller. Their intent with
the CDD is to be able to pass on the costs of their property association
amenities (2. community centers, 2 pools, playgrounds, etc.) to the
homeowners. Typically the developer on a project funds those ameni-
ties.


Jarrett Woolever's request to move his liquor store from Lanark to
Carrabelle was approved. The location will be the recently-closed
Express Lane gas station across from the Moorings.
He agreed to follow any applicable state and county "hours of opera-
tion" legislation.
Dan Hartman secured approval of Alan Hart's preliminary plat for
Arrow Point subdivision.
Our Water/Sewer Rate study for $19,550 was approved.
Gary Magee's request for conceptual plan approval for renovating the
old building at 209 Hwy 98 east was postponed to August.' DOT must
approve highway access points.
David Butler secured an extension for one year (to 6/08) on the devel-
opment order for Timber Island Plantation.

Full house at "Turtle Talk" on St. George Island.

"Turtle Talk" on St. George Island

Attention Beach Users:

Lights Out!
BY DIANE DYAL
Thousands of sea turtles call Florida their home. Threatened
Loggerhead sea turtles nest from May 1st through October 31st.
Starting in July and for the-next three months, the nests will hatch at
night and the baby turtles will scramble to the sea, guided by the light
reflected from Gulf waters. Lights on land may confuse baby turtles
causing them to turn away from the sea. So, watch for disoriented
hatchlings and keep outside lights off.
Starting this month, there will be "Turtle Talk" at the St. George Island
Firehouse on the second floor every Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. On July 10,
2007 there was a full house. There were people from as far away as
Georgia and Alabama. These curious animal lovers attended the meet-
ing to listen to STAR (Sea Turtles At Risk) volunteer Neva Watford
give a slide show about the Loggerhead and Leatherback turtles that
nest on St. George Island. A couple of lucky attendees said they had
seen a nest a few days before the meeting.

How You Can Help:
* Keep exterior lights out and shades drawn from dusk to dawn.
* Avoid disturbing a turtle that is crawling to or from the Gulf.
" Avoid snapping flash photos.
" Avoid nighttime activities.
* Take in beach chairs, tents, toys at night so a sea turtle won't get tan-
gled in them.
* Fill in any holes you dig on the beach.
* If yoiu are lucky enough to see a turtle, sit quietly in the dark at a dis-
tance, to watch her nest.
All the members of STAR are volunteers, including Neva Watford,
Bruce Hall, Bruce Drye and others. For more information call: STAR
at 850-653-3820, Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve at
850-670-4783 or Bruce Drye at 850-927-2103 and 1-888-404-3922 and
please visit the website at: www.seaturtlesatrisk.org. Sea turtles and
people can both exist on the beach!

Unveiling.

New Carrabelle Park is Dedicated July 7, 2007

John David Patton Park

Carrabelle to open commemorative nature park on the
north side
BY SKIP FRINK
Perhaps the best way to explain the significance of the new park is to
quote from Mayor Mel Kelly's address on the occasion of the dedica-
tion:
"I have asked Pastor Julie Stephens to offer a blessing today in honor of
this important dedication, and these special guests who join us. Pastor
Julie leads the Methodist Church, which is located on Highway 67, less
than three blocks from the scene of Officer Patton's murder.
"My name is Mel.Kelly, and I have the real privilege of being the cur-
rent Mayor of Carrabelle.
I would like to welcome you fo this commemoration of the thirtieth
anniversary of the death of Officer John David Patton, the only
Carrabelle police officer ever killed in the line of duty.
"Patton was shot and killed answering, a domestic abuse call on
Highway 67 near Avenue G in Carrabelle. It was Saturday, July 9, 1977.
He had served for one year with the Carrabelle Police Department.
Officer Patton, 28, was married with two children.
"This long-overdue tribute was proposed to the current city commis-
sion by then-Lieutenant Joe Ham. The suggestion to dedicate this edu-
cational family park in memory of Officer Patton came from Carrabelle
City Administrator John McInnis, who is himself a former police offi-
cer.
"The land, granted by Florida Communities Trust in 2005, has finally
been developed into a long-awaited nature park. Phase One features
wildlife trails, an accessible pavilion with picnic tables, restroom and
parking. The pavilion and picnic tables will be completed next week.
"A bird and butterfly garden, complete with irrigation system and edu-
cational signage on these early trails will help visitors enjoy and better
understand the scenery around them. The park is also home to the
endangered gopher tortoise, and the first one seen emerging from his
burrow some months ago was, of course, christened "General Patton"
in honor of his tank-like shell.
"Further, I call your attention to the quote from Charles Lindbergh at
the park entrance sfgn. I believe its message is especially appropriate. It
reads, "In wilderness, I sense the miracle of life."
"It is hoped that further natural enhancement of this park will be
planned and implemented on behalf of the community."


Chandlers Celebrate Half

Century

Occasion enjoyed by all at Lanark Village Boat Club &
Marina
BY SKIP FRINK
Saturday, July 7 marked the 50th wedding anniversary for a well-known
Lanark Village couple. John and JoEllen ("Two capitals, one word")
Chandler hosted relatives from as far away as Arizona and Indiana, and
were able to secure them places to stay all over the Village.
John is known for a couple of things: first, he may be seen at a
Carrabelle Junction sidewalk table with a friend or two most any morn-
ing. Second, he wears 3 radios and a cell phone.
The communication devices are necessary for the veteran volunteer: he
is past Lanark Fire Chief and currently volunteers as a fireman, First
Responder (ambulance) and drives Patrol Car 802 for Lanark Security.
Although the Chandlers moved 22 times in the course of John's
mechanical engineering career, Lanark has been home for 10 years.
The couple has 3 daughters: Laurie in Indiana, Teresa in Phoenix, and
Kathy in Lanark. 5 grandkids and 2 great-grandkids round out the fam-
ily.

Impact Fees?
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE
Impact fees are a way to charge
developers and "new comers" for
all the hassles and inconviences
that their arrival brings to the
"old neighborhood"?
Not exactly.
A Power Point program was pre-
sented on July 3rd tothe Board
by Marguerite McCauley from
Government Services Group,
Inc. and Crystie Carey, Nabors,
Giblin, Nickerson, a legal firm
from Tallahassee. You may
remember this firm from Lanark
Village Water and Sewer.
Description:
Impact Fees are charges imposed


against new development to fund
capital facilities made necessary
by that growth.
The purpose-of the charge is to
impose upon newcomers, rather
than the general public, the cost
of new facilities made necessary
by their arrival.
Purpose/Application:
The fee must fund capital facili-
ties, not operation and mainte-
nance.
The fee must have a rational con-
nection between the need for the
facilities and the growth.
The fee must have a rational con-
nection between the expenditure
of the impact fee proceed and the
benefits received.
The fee cannot exceed the cost of


the facilities.
The fee proceeds must be held in
trust for growth's use.
The fee proceeds must be expend-
ed or refunded within a reason-
able time.
And fees can be enacted to offset
the costs of transportation, fire
facilities, law enforcement, gener-
al government, libraries, EMS,
corrections, parks and recreation.
Impact Fee Basic
Calculation:
Determine gross cost per unit of
development
* Determine credit
* Calculate net cost per unit of
development
Total Gross Capital Costper Unit


of Development.


Credit for Other Revenue:
Net Impact Fee per Unit of
Development
Impact Fee Credits:
New development should receive
a credit for future payments of
other revenues that are used to
pay for the same facilities that are
required to serve the new devel-
opment.
Credits are not given for revenues
used for repair, maintenance,
replacement. or operating costs
because impact fees are not used
for such expenses,
Collection Methods:
Building permit.
Certificate of occupancy.
Example: Parks & Recreation
Construction or Expansion
Data Needs for Study:
* Inventory of existing Parks;
* Map(s); showing each existing
parks or planned expansion

* Capital Improvements History

Implement impact fees-90 days.. ,-mum 6.f si.\ month to dothe nec-
essan preparatory ground work
Qiiestions to Ms. MaCaulfey by 'arid then there is a 90 day grace


the Board:
Mr. Putnal: Can we just charge
big developers and not individu-
als.
Answer: No, not really. But some
types of exemptions (affordable
housing etc.) are possible. Any
provisions of this type must have
staff provided to oversee the
proper implementation of these
provisions. Impact fees are on
principle applied "across the
board"--everybody pays. "New
Commercial (developments) does
not pay Parks and Recreation
Impact Fees because Parks and
Recreation are for your popula-
tion but Fire would be on any
new buildings ... But you can also
be working with these developers
separately."
Reporter's interpretation: First
there must be a "study" or studies
done to prove an "impact" has
actually occurred in the areas
seeking funding: transportation,
fire facilities, law enforcement,
general government (buildings),
libraries, medical services, parks
and recreation. And if the
County makes a mistake in its
calculations with regards to the
cost of the impacts or if it spends
the money "inappropriately" the
County could be required to
refund all the money that it had
collected.
The above formula breaks every-
thing down to a cost per unit of
development. But all new units of
development-are going to pay a
similar impact fee not just the
big developer. Your daughter who
has recently married and is going
to put a trailer home on the little
lot you bought twenty years ago
will be charged proportionately
according to the above formula in
the same fashion as Porthaven or
the.St. Joe Company
County acquired grants or aids
will have to be deducted from any
Impact Fees and charges.
Listed above are the procedures.
the County must follow in order
to determine the applicability,
justification and amount of the
Impact fee that will be charged.
There was no mention of who
must pay for the implementation
of the above information gather-
ing, verification or calculations or
how these cost and expenses
would be recouped by the
County.

period before any fee can be
charged. An impact fee will
require a properly drafted ordi-
nance. It will require studies and
research. It will require staffing,
lawyers, negotiators, cooperation
and interaction with government
agencies, possibly accounting
assistance and record keeping,
and most likely the hiring of a
consultant firm. Laws and guide-
lines will have to be followed
accurately or penalties can be
imposed.
There are other alternatives
which include special assess-
ments and direct negations with
individual developers. This can
also be a perilous route depend-
ing on the popularity of the spe-
cial assessments or the choice of
negotiators and the openness of
the negotiations. And this course
may also involve all of the above
peoples and agencies to one
degree or another. A simple solu-
tion does not seem to be a possi-
bility.


Plug In

America
Plug In America celebrates its
second anniversary this month,i
and has sent each member of the
U.S. Congress and every U.S.
state governor a DVD of the doc-
umentary Who Killed the
Electric Car? and a copy of the
book Plug-in Hybrids: The Cars
That Will Recharge America.
Electric cars and plug-in hybrids
have taken center stage among
political strategies to wean the
U.S. transportation sector off
entrenched petroleum depend-
ence, thanks in no small part to
the efforts of Plug In America.
Initially called DontCrush.com:
The Campaign To Save Electric
Cars, Plug, In America was
founded on June 2, 2005 by elec-
tric car drivers who were out-
raged that car-companies were
canceling leases on electric vehi-
cles and literally crushing them
instead of selling them to eager
buyers. The drivers organized
campaigns that saved over 1,000
cars from destruction, cars that
are still on the road proving the
readiness of electric drive tech-
nology. The group evolved into a
dynamic educational organiza-
tion that is influencing the auto
industry, politicians, and clean-
air regulators.

Weems Memorial Hospital from Page 1

situation at the hospital has become very tentative. We are trying to
patch a schedule together for the month of July. We would like to enter
into a contract with Southland Emergency Physicians Services. Mostof
you know that is doctor Heart and his group. The earliest that they
could begin is the month of August. Their request is greater than the
amount that we are currently paying for Physicians. So for the remain-
der of this year we will have a short fall in the ER Physicians.
"Also as we discussed in our workshop there has been a lack of fund-
ing coming in for the ambulance service from the provider number
(problem). Congressman Boyd and Senator Nelson are attempting to
work on this problem. This is-apparently a nationwide problem accord-
ing to Mr. Pickles, the liaison for Congressman Boyd. In the meantime
we are running a short-fall for the ambulance service. And the AHCA
payment that you just agreed to is due in September and it is $11,000.
Also Mr. Abbott from the Island requested,$10,000 for the next ten
weekends to run.an ambulance over there. So the hospital is requesting
$150,000 for the two shortfalls that I have mentioned and $10,000 for
the ambulance service for the ten weekend staffing for a third ambu-
lance on St. George Island."
The emergency room Physician staffing was then discussed. "Without
Dr. Miniot, or if anything was to happen to Dr. Miniot we would have
no contingency plan." A contingencyplan for physicians at emergency
rooms is required by law. "We need a group that we can call upon that
can fill in when the clinic physician can't make it."
Mr. Colvert's requests were then approved-the moneys to be taken
from the contingency fund.
At this point the discussion turned to the establishment of a local sales
tax to supplement the hospital and health care in Franklin County. Ms.
Sanders equivocated on the issue giving both positives and negatives
with regards to the issue and suggested that there should be a referen-
dum. She pointed out on the one hand the necessity of adequate com-
munity health care and on the other hand that a sales tax would be a
burden to an already struggling local business community.
Mr. Lockley gave an impassioned plea in favor of a sales tax. He point-
ed out that this was not a problem peculiar to Franklin County but that
it was a problem confronting the entire nation. He acknowledged the
fact that most jobs and employers in Franklin County are not capable
of providing health care insurance for their workers. "The sales tax
would be a good thing because it would take the burden off the
Franklin County taxpayers ... Just about all the counties around

Weems Memorial Hospital from Page 6

(Franklin) have sales taxes ... People don't like taxes. This is a penny
but I think this is one of the best pennies in the world because you will
be paying for health care. People want health care. People need health
care."
"But," interrupted Ms. Sanders, "you've got to have a facility that all
the community will support. At this time you have a hospital that a
large portion of this County does not support. If you had a better facil-
ity I think that you could get more support from the community. But no
place in this nation, if you haven't got the support from the whole com-
munity is going to make it. That is just the whole truth." She went on
to point out the difficulties that a hospital faces paying indigent care
costs and self-pay individuals who usually can't pay the full costs.
Mr. Putnal then pointed out that with a one cent sales tax it would take
decades to pay for a 30 or 40 million dollar hospital.
"Mr. Putnal, if we can obtain an inter-local agreement for the two cities
... where the County gets one hundred percent of the tax money. That
one hundred percent is approximately two million dollars per year from
sales tax revenues," interjected Mr. Shuler.
"But if you had a sales tax," offered Mr. Crofton, "and it went toward
a new hospital, they could float a bond issue with the sales tax (as col-
lateral). Now, I'm not against the sales tax. I'm probably in favor of it-
a one percent sales tax. What I think ought to be done with the one per-
cent sales tax is that people ought.to vote on it-a vote by the citizens
... a binding referendum where the people will support a one percent
sales tax for the hospital. Half a percent would be to run the facility that
we have now and the other half percent would be for a new hospital (or
new facilities). We still have the critical care designation on this hospi-
tal which pays, instead of 60% of the Medicare-we get 101% ... I want
to turi this over to a private company because I don't want the County
operating a hospital. I don't think that we can do it we just can't do it.
We're just kind of stumbling along here trying to re-invent the wheel
and I don't think that is the proper thing to do. The one percent sales
tax is probably the way to go but the People have to be involved with
the vote ... It is a way to get the County out of the hospital business. It
allows the private companies to come in ... in my estimation the long
range plan is to have a newer hospital run by a private company who
doesn't require the County to come back once a month and put more
money in ... this will pull the whole County down (supporting a com-
munity hospital)."

Marcia Johnson-Clerk of Courts
"On March 6, 2007, Ms. Gayle Dodds, representing the hospital board,
advised you (that) the hospital board was interested in purchasing prop-
erty owned by Mr. Roy Solomon. She also requested you approve the
hospital board's recommendation to allow Mr. Chuck Colvert to serve
as CFO in addition to serving as CEO with an additional salary nego-
tiated by the hospital board. There was no disclosure provided as to the
amount of the salary. She also reported health insurance was being
authorized for the hospital employees with the hospital paying 75%.
Please keep in mind Ms. Dodds made all her announcements during
the month of March. I came before this board on April 17, 2007 to
make you aware the hospital had more expenditure for the month of
March than revenues. At your next meeting on May 1, 2007, a hospital
board representative and Chuck Colvert were present, and they report-
ed on the status of the hospital, assuring you my concerns were
unfounded.
I find it ironic that a month later, we are in a financial crisis. Either your
hospital board didn't know and weren't provided reliable information
from hospital staff, or they didn't make you aware of the financial situ-
ation. The hospital board and the CEQ/CFO were put in place for
oversight for the county, not to keep information from us. My office-
consistently asked for financial reports, even going so far as to email the
report in the format I wanted to the staff at the hospital. We received
only two reports as requested.
I want to inform you also that the county's audit is going to be complet-
ed late this year in part due to the hospital not providing information
requested by our auditors. I've received communication between the
hospital and the auditors that confirms this statement.
I thought the workshop on June 28, 2007 was for everyone to put their
thoughts out there. I made statements at the workshop for the purpose
of making the hospital board and employees aware.of some.of our, ctt-
izens' concerns in order for those concerns to be resolved prior toa vote
being t~ken regarding ad valorem taxiiig or'sales tax imposition. t
believe my remarks may have been negatively received when my inten-


tion was to offer beneficial information'
:'IJ. 1L-
The hospital has been funded in part by:the County. We've put 2.7 mil-
lion dollars into the hospital since the County assumed the operation.
There are minutes that show you were tl6d the County would be repaid
monies once Medicare payments were received, and that has never
occurred. The hospital is, in essence, being operated as a department of
this County with oversight by the hospitall board. I do have concerns
when there's not enough money to :3ay the bills and delinquent notices
are being sent in and we owe the State'of Florida $600,000 and we pur-
chased property for the hospital at $3,00,000. It's a bad reflection on our
county.)
I want everything that's said and done to be out in the open, and I stand
by what I've said. My statements are- made to provide you 5 elected
commissioners with information you need to make wise decisions for
the good of the entire county. They're,iot made for any other purpose.
I speak as your financial officer. I didn't want to see us-get to a crisis sit-
uation where you felt forced to act without timely consideration of all
factors, and that is exactly what has.happened.
There has to be a line of communication between my office and every
department of this county, and I ask for nothing less. If my office is
notified in advance, perhaps problems can be dealt with.and crises
avoided.
I request that any action you take today include direction that requires
the hospital to file financial reports as directed by you in the format pro-
vided'by my office on a monthly basis, and direction that my office be
timely provided any other information requested.
I believe it's much less troubling to prevent problems rather than to have
to solve problems, especially when the taxpayer's money and our repu-
tations are at stake."
This statement by Ms. Johnson was greeted by a round of applause
from members of the audience.
"Well, I appreciate the Hospital Boar; helping with this and whatthey
are doing. They are all volunteers and they are doing the best that they
can, I am sure," Mr. Crofton offered. "And this isn't a reflection on the
Hospital Board. We are not condemning the Hospital Board. However
we do need the financial report so that we can determine what kind of
problems might be in the future." :
"We thought that we were going to get a lot of this money back, but it
is really not happening," added Mr. Putnal.
Ms. Sanders then asked about possible penalties due to the audit not
being provided on time. Marcia Johnson suggested that the, hospital
may be fined up' to a thousand dollars per day for each .day of delin-
quency.
"The audit actually started before-(in fact) we were already late on the
report when the.audit started," offered Mr. Colvert. "In any case they
(now) have the information. And the audit should be completed short-
ly. There wasn't anything intentionally withheld. There was informa-
tion that couldn't be found from January of '06 and I wasn't here at that
time but I'm sure it was quite hectic' at that time. That was the month
that you took this (hospital) back over... As far as financial information
was concerned, the month that Marcia is talking about, this Board got
not only financial statements for that month but also got a budget for
the rest of the fiscal year. And it showed you just what we told you this
hospital was going to run a financial deficit for the rest of this fiscal
year. It may not have been in the format that was requested but it was
financial information given directly to you at your April Board meet-
ing."
"Would it be a problem for you to give us a statement every month?"
asked Mr. Lockley.
I don't have any problem at all giving a statement every month," said
Mr. Colvert.
The possibility of a sales tax was then further discussed. It was estab-
lished by the County Attorney that a referendum would be necessary if
the County had any plans to float a bond issue. A 4 to 1 vote by the
Commission could authorize the sales tax without a referendum but
then no bond issue could be established. The bottom line seems to be
that a referendum is necessary. The referendum would require a simple
majority 50% plus one more vote. The ballot.would include the ques-
tion properly worded i'h a space provided .to: approve and another
space provided:tbo dlapproe Te The \'ae wth more"than 0 %o of the

be October 17. But even if the sales tax were approved money for the
hospital would still be necessary from ad valorem taxes when and until
the sales tax revenues began to be submitted to the County.
"And the thing is," added Mr. Crofton, "if the sales tax is not voted in,
then the hospital will ultimately close because, I swear to you the
County just can not keep putting money into the hospital. And we
would have to have a back up plan if the referendum failed but the back
up plan would have to be funded (nevertheless) from ad valorem taxes.
[back up plan being more ambulances, possible satellite clinics, emer-.
gency rooms, evacuation to Tallahassee or Panama and other cost that
would still have to come from ad valorem taxes.] But there would be"
light at the end of the tunnel if the sales tax is approved ... No one that
I have talked to wants this hospital closed. I don't think that anybody in-
the County wants the hospital to close but they need to make the deci-
sion for themselves and vote accordingly. And they need to have the
ability to vote."
It was suggested that if the sales tax were inaugurated as soon as possi--
ble the first moneys would not arrive until May of next year which also
implies that the hospital would have to be supported until that time by
ad valorem taxes nevertheless.
"This is not going to work without a sales tax," offered Mr. Lockley.
Mr. Putnal then made a motion that a special election be set up for_
October or the earliest possible date. The motion was interrupted by-
further discussion.
"We need to have a vision for what we need for health care in Franklin,
* County," suggested Mr. Parrish. "Putting this to the voter on such a,
short notice, we as a Board don't have a clear vision of where we are,,
going in this County with health care. I think that it is premature to try
to put this on the ballot and shove it through without being able to tell-
the people exactly where we are going and what we are going to do.'
about health care in Franklin County. We got to get some people-
together, form a committee, hire some consultants and see where we
are going with health care in Franklin County."
"We already had a study," said Mr. Lockley.
"I agree with you Smokey (Mr. Parrish) but I don't think that we can-
survive if we keep putting it off," offered Mr. Putnal.
"Well the thing that I see is that if you don't put it on the ballot we are
going to have to fund the hospital through ad valorem taxes," suggest-
Sed Mr. Crofton. "If you put it on the ballot and it fails we are still going,
to have the fund the hospital through ad valorem taxes. So I don't think
it changes anything."
Mr. Parrish then returned to his notion of gathering information being,
necessary to make a proper decision. "This committee or whatever we
set up to keep us going with health care (will gather information), take,.
that information to the public hearing, let it be publicly debated before-;
a vote and then put it on the ballot ... (without this information) you are ,
going to just kill this whole deal because people don't know where we,.
are going ... actually we don't know where we are going."
"We know ... you weren't on the Board ... I have been going through
this thing ever since we had the health care committee," said Mr.L
Lockley. "Arid they have had the study and everything else. They have'
a vision of where they are going and they turned it over to the hospital
board but they have done all the studies. They have all the information.
It is there and we talked about a sales tax back then. That was one of
the reasons for the study to come up. We went through all that. The
information is already there."
Marcia Johnson then pointed out that even if the hospital closed down
the County is still responsible for an ambulance service. "But you will '
be creating another problem and you need to be aware of that prob-'
lem."
"This is not an easy issue," offered Mr. Crofton.
"I think that the citizens will understand the need for a hospital here J
and if they don't then they don't want to pay for it and we need to know
if they want to pay for it or not."
Mr. Putnal agreed with Mr. Crofton and Mr. Lockley seemed to suggest
that no matter what course the County decides upon they are going to
need money beyond ad valorem taxes to pay for it.
The audidncetheb offered comments. '" : .' ,
The first participant Mr. Ken Osborne speaking as a private citizen sug-
gested that the inter-local agreement throughout the County was cru-.
cial to the success of this tax. He also suggested, as Marcia Johnson had
stated, that adequate and detailed financial reports mist be submitted.
In addition he felt that whether the money was going to be used for
maintenance and expansion of the old facility or for a new building, it,
should be-defined before hand and the public should be so advised. He
asked for gross hospital financial figures at the least to substantiate the
hospital viability and necessity. "All we ever hear is that we need it ...
There are a lot of things that we "need" in this world ... but in this (hos-
pital business) you need money and I need, as a citizen, numbers-I -
need numbers. I want to know what you are doing. I want to know how '
many employees you got. I want to know how many ambulances are
staffed."
"Now ... would you know if we gave you the number of how many',

runs the ambulance makes-would you know what that number
meant?" asked Mr. Crofton.
"If you give me a reference to it, yes sir."
"What do you have to compare it to? What other hospital; what other
business model do you have to compare it to?"
"Well, it just so happens that I was on the Board of one of the largest
hospital consulting firms in the United States. So I could get that. But
I'm just asking for some simple things. You're coming back and saying
that we don't need to give you any numbers. Well we're not that igno-
rant."
"Well I'm not saying that you are, but the majority, the vast majority, of -
the people in Franklin County wouldn't know what those numbers
meant. You might have the experience and the background but I don't.
I could look at all those numbers and it wouldn't mean a thing to me.
And putting out all those numbers in the time that we have to put it out
is a waste of time, in my estimation. I am not saying that it shouldn't
be done or that we are not going to do it. But what we are doing now
is ...I'm trying to have an overall picture, a general view, of what we
need to do. And what I think we need to do is have a new hospital and
get the County out of the hospital business. We have got to keep this
hospital going until we can get a new hospital built. When you get too
specific it just crowds the issue ... You can not have a bond issue with
a sunset attached to it. But there is no sunset on a tax. It is like a stop-
light. The stoplight goes up; the stoplight never comes back down.
Once you institute a tax, you are not going to sunset that tax."
"But what I heard at the workshop is that we don't keep paying the tax
for the hospital if the hospital isn't there."


Mr. Crofton then explained that there were only three options as he saw
it. The hospital could be closed. "This is not a viable option to me or to
any of the Board members up here as far as I know." The second option
was a half cent sales tax which he explained would be just maintaining
the status quo and offering no option for future growth and improve-
ment: The third choice was for a one percent sales tax which would
maintain what we currently have and provide the needed funding for
future growth and development. Mr. Crofton expressed his option
favoring a one percent sales tax.
The next speaker was Richard Harper who admitted the need for a crit-
ical care facility but was concerned more with how such a facility
would be operated, and maintained and supported. He reiterated the
demand foraiore accurate and reliable information. He brought up the
fact that health insurance was provided to hospital workers even though
the hospital was not financially capable of providing such a benefit.
"And the hospital is offsetting 75% of that (employees health insurance
cost). I thought that it was the County Commission that made those
sorts of decisions." His complaint being that it appeared that the hospi-
tal in consultation with the Hospital Advisory Board had made the
decision and notified the Board of their decision rather than bringing it
to the Board for a vote. "The taxpayers need more information before
we move this forward. We have to do something. We know that we
need some kind of emergency health care but a lot of us have questions
about how this thing would more forward with no more control than
we have and some of the decisions that have been made. And some of
the disjointed systems that are in place."
"Do you use this hospital?" asked Mr. Lockley.
"I do sir."
"The only problem I have, Richard, with all the gathering information
for a year or two is how are we possibly going to keep that thing (hos-
pital).going (in the mean time). I want to know what the public wants
and the only way we can do that is to get it (special election) on the
agenda. If we keep waiting, how are we going to keep running the hos-
pital until that happens?"
"Well you'd have to do it with ad valorem money," suggested Mr.
Harper.
"But you scream when we spend ad valorem taxes," countered Ms.
Sanders.
"I do and I am a loud voice. If you asked me to vote today to create 4
million dollars in new revenue and have that revenue dispersed under
the current system ... I would have to vote against it. And that would
be a vote against critical health care. We need to get the system in place
.in order to give the people of Franklin County the confidence that we
have a successful model in place to make it work.
"It is always a good idea to have an educated electorate. This is such a
complicated issue that I'm concerned that we are not giving it an oppor-
tunity for success. A lot of people are going to vote against it if you try
to put it on the ballot quick. As much as it is needed, I think that the
people are going to be against it." Mr. Harper closed off his speaking
opportunity once again bringing up the health care insurance that was
provided to the hospital employees and staff and questioning not only
its advisability but the method of its authorization.
Mr. Pierce explained that the action was taken via indirect authoriza-
tion of the Board but nevertheless with its approval.
Curt Blair then spoke on behalf of the hospital Board. "We think that
this discussion that you are having relative to the sales tax is one of the
most important discussions that you need to have for this County. We
know that you have to take time with this but we would suggest to you
that shooting the messenger is probably not the best approach. I know
that I speak for some of us (Hospital Board Members) when we get a
little defensive about how the hospital has been operating. When you
set up a Hospital Board you adopted a set of operating procedures. Our
operating procedures told us what we had to do, what we had to come
back to you for, and what kind of reporting we had to provide you. We
have been doing that. You have gotten our financial statements every
month. You get our runs from the ambulance every month and or cen-
sus data for the hospital. Our meetings were open and we conduct them
in accordance with the Sunshine Law and do the best we can to try and
anticipate the needs for the County. We brought to you the message last
week that you needed to seriously consider the possibility of some sort
of half penny or full penny sales tax if you wanted to keep the hospital
open. The $150,000 dollars that Chuck (Colvert) just came to you for
were items that were not totally anticipated.
"We did come to you in February and we discussed with you the issue
about health insurance and we found a way to fund the health insur-
ance by cutting back on the administrative costs of the hospital with the
management contract. And we thought that was an important decision
both because the employees didn't have health insurance and we
thought they needed it and we need to be competitive with health care
facilities around the area when we were trying to recruit people. We
also did it because a good number of the employees within the hospital
were coming to the hospital without insurance and that was part of our
indigent care sum of money that the hospital necessarily had to under-
write. So while it was an expense we thought it was an important one
because first of all we saved some money to get it; and secondly we
shored up the staff so that we could continue having staff.
"With respect to the land (Solomon property) we didn't come and ask
you to buy the land. You came and asked us if we thought we could use

it if you bought it. We looked at it and we looked at the appraisal and
we said sure. It made sense ... So in fairness to the hospital we are doing
our best to keep the public informed. We don't have many visitors at
our public meetings. In fact, we very seldom have a member of the pub-
lic or for that matter a member of the press that reports on the activi-
ties of the Hospital Board and perhaps that is part of the reason that the
message doesn't get out to the public.
"(But) getting back to the real issue and the real issue is that if you want
health care in this County, it is going to be expensive and it is going to
require participation by the County. We had hoped that within the next
six months to a year we would have that "road map" that you were talk-
ing about. I think we know the rough edges of it ... I think we know
that if we are going to have in-patient's beds, we need to maintain the
critical access status; if we want to maintain the critical access status,
the hospital itself has to remain pretty much where it is. But we also
recognize that the Eastern end of the county is the portion that needs
some facilities. Do we know exactly what that facility is yet?.... No. Do
we know exactly what services need to be provided there? Well, we
have a pretty good idea but since we haven't hired an architect to design
the plans. We can't cost-out every penny, we can't come to you and say
that it is going to be a ten thousand square foot building and it is going
to have this piece of equipment. But we generally understand what
would probably make the most sense in terms of having the services
that are typically available in a county of this size and where they ought
to be and how they ought to be paid for. All of which has a lot of dis-
cussion. The public needs to be involved and we hoped that we would
have the time to work through that process with both you (the Board)
and 'members of the public.
."The issue that we.brought to you last week about the urgency is most-
ly issues that we didn't have any control over. We didn't have any con-
Strol over a $600,000 loan that we are trying to get back to you. The
physician issue is an issue that has come up recently. We have lost a
couple of physicians ... I think that if there is a message that the
Hospital Board could come together on today it is that nobody is trying
to hide anything. We are doing our best to communicate to you and the
public ... if you (or the public) need more information we are happy to
do that. We ought to be discussing what types of facilities are necessary
and how we are going to get there. And probably the best request of the
public is do we (they) really want a hospital? We have some options. If
the public doesn't want a hospital we could do out-patient clinics or
some combination thereof ... We are all in this together. You are all
doing a good job and we hope that we are doing a good job of oversight
for you and we would like to see the public become more involved in
Hospital Board Meetings and in our discussions. If you are going to call
for an early referendum you might want to look at a more generic ques-
tion like "do you want a hospital" rather than do we necessarily have to
pay for it out of a penny sales tax."
"I think that the people of Franklin County feel the same way about
this as you and I do. We need health care and the only way to get it is
a sales tax," said Mr. Putnal.
"Another thing, you've got to realize where we are at. We are in the
middle of nowhere; sixty miles to Panama City; eighty miles to
Tallahassee. That is a long way even with a broken hand. We need a
hospital and we need it here."
Mr. Crofton obviously hearing Mr. Blair's comment with regards to the
critical care assessment and the location of the hospital then asked Mr.
Shuler if that half penny that he had been advocating for a new hospi-
tal could be used to upgrade or improve existing facilities or new facil-
ities in other parts of the County.
Mr. Shuler explained that it would have to be worded properly in the
sales tax referendum and put to the public with as much specificity as
possible.
Mayor Kelly asked; "Did I understand something you said to mean that
if, for example, the Carrabelle City Commission chose not to sign and
inter-local agreement if the sales tax were passed that it would be pos-
sible then for the City of Carrabelle to keep the sales tax revenue to be
directed toward health care for Carrabelle?"
"Depending on which surtax the County approves ...yes ma'am."
Mr. Shuler then explained to the Board that in understanding Mayor
Kelly's question the Board should be advised to make special note of
the type of surtax they propose basically to avoid the unfPrtunate cir-
cumstance that Mayor Kelly's question presents. Mr. Shuleavent on to
warn that to divide the money into three piles would basic ll fake the
whole idea ineffective. But in response to the nature of the Mayor's


question the conversation then turned to the improvement of services
and facilities in the eastern part of the county. Improvements in that
part of the county would have-to be included and the citizens in that
area assured.
"We need good health care for the whole County," added Mr. Lockley.
A motion was then made to direct the supervisor of elections to prepare
for a special election to present a surtax to the citizens. The motion was
approved.
Mr. Parrish suggested that the Board conduct two workshops, one in
Apalachicola and one in Carrabelle and that these workshops be fol-
lowed by a Public Hearing before the date of the proposed referendum.
The special election ballot will be a mail out ballot.

Carrabelle Fixes To Go "Green"from Page 1
Hexaport is the home manufacturing facility in New Hampshire.
Tallahassee developer Bud Chiles and business partner Tony Attalla,
who owns a steel fabrication and frame manufacturing facility in New
Hampshire, have formed Green, Steel Homes, and will build their $6-
million manufacturing assembly plant for the panhandle area on the
Airport Road site. From the company's website www.Greensteel
homes.com: "GreenSteel Homes takes the Katrina Cottage concept a
step higher in quality and savings to builders and homeowners. Our
homes, unlike most other Katrina-style cottages, come finished with all
the electrical, plumbing and custom interior finishes. What usually
takes months to design and build, will take only days. GreenSteel
Homes yields a stronger, more environmentally friendly home in less
time and for less money to homeowners and developers". The homes,
dubbed GreenSteel, feature "Katrina cottage" floor plans and designs
created by Tolar Denmark Architects of Ocean Springs, Miss., part of
a post-Katrina architects group organized to provide permanent hous-
ing for storm victims.
Features of GreenSteel Homes:
* Steel-framed
* Metal and cement-board roof (no wood or wood products)
* Foam-cement insulation (no drywall)
* Cement-board exterior walls (no wood or wood products, or vinyl)
* Fire, mold and mildew resistant
* Can withstand 150-mph winds
* Made from almost all recyclable material
* Sells for about $100 a square foot. Chiles says that a similar site-built '
home would cost $175, to $200 a square foot.
From the Hexaport website:
* Patented Strong StudTM increases loadbearing capabilities, eliminat-
ing the need for Heavier, more expensive gauges of steel.
* Members are pre-cut, reducing in-field cutting.
* Pre-cut members reduce construction waste up to 75% and costly dis-
posal fees.
* Each system includes everything needed to do the job, including fas-
teners. There is no time wasted using several vendors.
Chiles and Attala are marketing the homes to municipalities and devel-
opers, who will assemble parcels, pour slabs and run utilities to the
home sites. The homes will be constructed-including wiring and
plumbing-at the new plant in Carrabelle, trucked to home sites in two
pieces, assembled in about a day and "plugged in" to the water, sewer
and electrical lines. Chiles hopes to produce 400 homes a year to sell to
buyers for about $100 a square foot. A 1,100-sq.-ft., three-bedroom
model, together with site and foundation, could cost as little as
$125,000.
Background, by Ron Scherer of The Christian Science Monitor : "A
model home here that gives Katrina's displaced an alternative to trailer
living is starting to take the country by storm.
"The Katrina cottage-with living quarters about the size of a
McMansion bathroom-is now appealing to people well beyond the
flood plain., Californians want to build one in their backyards to use for
rental income to help with the mortgage payment. Modestly paid
kayakers in Colorado see it as a way to finally afford a house.
Elsewhere, people envision building one so a parent can live nearby.
"Flying in the face of a "big house" trend, designers of these tiny
.abodes seem to have found a new housing niche. Some experts cite an
interest by some Americans in downsizing their habitats, a reaction to
the supersized home, and note the challenge of heating and cooling a


big hbuse at a time when family budgets are flat. Others note that
changing demographics-more empty-nesters and single adults-may
mean a timely debut of the Lilliputian homes."
'For residents of Franklin County, the "Lilliputian" homes may be com-
pact, but they surely will generate the impetus that can push all the
parts of our repressed economy back into the middle lane (we don't do
Fast Lane on this coast!).

Sadness At A Death Too Soon from Page I
and Toni attempted CPR as Alan took the boat's helm and aimed back
to Eagle Harbor boat landing at St. Joe State Park. People on a pontoon
boat saw them and rushed to a home on Cape San Bias where para-
medics were called.
The first reports were that Tyler apparently drowned. It was suggested
that a wave flipped water into the snorkel and that it got in his lungs.
He was in about three feet of water and it was guessed that his flippers
hampered him standing up.
A later report was that an aneurism was found. Whatever the reason,
Tyler's life didn't follow nature's pattern in the normal progression of
birth, youth, maturity, procreation, then death. He was only 11 years
old when the breath of life left him.
It is impossible not to ask why-why someone so young died. Tyler did
not have time to think on the mystery of human existence, no time to
map out his destiny or to laugh, to cry as an adult in the process.
His passion was sports, any kind where people play. His family went to
Colorado to ski and Tyler graduated from the beginners slope right
away to the Black Diamond, the steepest slope in America. He flew
down the slope on his skis, no poles, just little Tyler in his bright yellow
jacket, flying down the mountain.
Stacy Kirvin, who coached Tyler both in baseball and soccer for three
years, was quoted in a local newspaper as saying "Tyler was a really
good ballplayer, but he was an even better team player. He never talked
back, always said 'Yes Sir,' A really good kid, a good teammate."
The backyard at the Eddy home was filled with youngsters his and
Alan's age. Happy voices echoed over the neighborhood as boys of dif-
ferent ages gathered to play with baseballs, footballs, soccer balls, ten-
nis balls, bows and arrows-whatever had to do with sports.
The youngsters played from early in the morning until late at night
when they weren't in school. Tyler was reckless. All great athletes have
to be. He knew no fear.
With a batting cage in the backyard, the sounds of pitching fever rose
several decibels, with the baseball making a steady thunk, thunk, thunk.
And most of the time Tyler's dad Bob was right in there among them,
showing them how to improve their batting.
On weekends the boys frequently went to Perry where they romped on
their grandparent's land, learning to fish, camp and hunt. The love of
sports and rambunctious play was a given with Tyler and his buddies,
including his dad, with mom and Alan cheering on the sidelines at
baseball games.
How a person lives and how they die are the ways they leave their foot-
prints on the sands of time. The memory of how they were is what is
left behind. It's hard, but somehow comforting, to know that those left
behind can try to take Tyler's death as a reminder of how limited a per-
son's time on the earth can be.
Everybody has their own way of dealing with pain and loss. One friend
asked if he could wear Tyler's jersey in a State Dixie Youth Baseball
tournament. Mark Rodgers asked Van Johnson if a ball field could be
dedicated to Tyler and Johnson said he didn't see a problem and would
start working on that. Mary Lynn Rodgers is setting up an account at
Apalachicola State Bank where those who wish may donate to put up
a plaque or memorial marker for the little boy with the big heart and
unlimited potential.
Those who knew and loved Tyler won't forget him. The sound of a ball
hitting a bat, and the sight of a sturdy little boy with legs pumping like
pistons, will bring to mind Tyler Eddy as he played with energy and
enthusiasm. Those who knew and loved Tyler can take a deep breath
and explain the tears as Bob Dylan does in a song ... "must be the sun
in my eyes." In addition.to Tyler's parents and brother Alan, he is sur-
vived by brother Ricky Eddy of St. Petersburg; grandparents, Billy and
Mary Jane Cannon and great-grandfather Pharo Cannon, all of Perry;
and many, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
