Finally, Lanark approves merger
BY RUSSELL ROBERTS
Chronicle Staff


A reconstituted Lanark Vill-
age Water and Sewer District
Board approved an agreement
Monday to merge into the City
of Carrabelle utilities, after a
standoff with Barbara -Rohrs
ended when she was removed as
chairwoman.
After being outvoted, Rohrs
abruptly left the meeting with
Office Manager Carol Reynolds.
Minutes later, the Board voted to
lock the District administrative
office to secure records.
The vote clears the way for
the Carrabelle City Commission
to take final action to approve
the agreement at its meeting
Thursday, Feb. 7.
Barring a last-minute legal
challenge, it's only a matter of
time before Lanark residents
become customers of Carrabelle
water and sewer.
The vote culminates a long,
rancorous dispute that has divid-
ed the community for months
between those who want the
Lanark Water District dissolved
and those who want to retain
control of water and sewer serv-
ices. Despite what appears to be
overwhelming support for merg-
ing with Carrabelle, Rohrs has
steadfastly refused to budge on

the issue and has done every-
thing in her power to stop it.
A key issue to be decided at
Monday's meeting was who
comprised the three members of
the Board. Last month,
Commissioner Sharon Thoman
resigned. The following day,
Rohrs refused to accept the resig-
nation and Thoman rescinded
her resignation. But the County-


Commission had already app-
ointed Raymond Courage to
replace Thoman. Rohrs clearly
viewed Thoman as her ally, and
did not want Courage on the
Board. Courage has voiced sup-
port of the merger, while
Thoman has gone back and
forth.
At the beginning of Monday
night's meeting, Rohrs announc-


ed that she would not recognize
Courage as a member, and that
Thoman was still a member of
the Board.
"Anyone who doesn't like it
can take it to litigation," she
said, knowing that litigation
could halt the merger, since
Carrabelle has a March 1 dead-
line.

Carrabelle soldier comes home to get married


BY LAUREL NEWMAN
Chronicle Correspondent
Chris Petsch didn't know
that joining the National Guard
six years ago would be a part of
so many profound changes and
experiences of his life.
While attending Apalachi-
cola High School he met a
recruiter who touched some
chord in the 11th-grader that


changed his plans for the next
few years. Eventually, boot camp
complete, he progressed through
the ranks until he found himself
stationed in Iraq last year, with
many of the young soldiers he
had trained with. Suddenly, the
realities of camp life were nor-
mal to him, and he began to see
more facets to his life in the serv-
ice.
"I'm stationed in Iraq near


the city of Tikrit," he said,
"working on communication
systems, radios, and computer
application systems. It's a base
system, so we all feel reasonably
safe there. One of the things we
have found here is that the train-
ing we get here qualifies us for
good, secure jobs in many fields,
while doing our service."
Petsch, who has attained the
rank of Sgt. E-5, says that not


only is the service he performs
an honor, but it is an investment
in his future, though there is a
price.
"The thing I miss the most,"
he said, "is my family and
friends at home, although I have
made a few good new friends
over there."
"More like brothers," .said

Florida


wins


water


ruling

BY RUSSELL ROBERTS
Chronicle Staff
In a ruling with implications
for Franklin County, Florida
won a major test in its fight over
water with Georgia on Tuesday
when a federal appeals court
threw out Georgia's 2003 agree-
ment to set aside a large portion
of Lake Lanier to supply drink-
ing water to metro Atlanta.
The United States Court of
Appeals in Washington ruled
that the secret settlement agree-
ment entered into between
Georgia, the Corps of Engineers,
and Atlanta-area water users is
illegal under federal law. The
agreement, which was signed in
2003, would have allocated near-
ly 25% of Lake Lanier, a federal
reservoir on the Chattahoochee
River, for Atlanta's water supply.
The court ruled that Georgia
and the Corps should have
obtained Congressional approval
for the pact, because the amount
of water to be stored for water
supply was large enough to con-
stitute a "major operational
change" in the administration of
Lake Lanier.
The agreement in question
would result in major reductions
in freshwater reaching Florida
and Alabama downstream, and
adversely impact Franklin
County's seafood industry.
Seafood in the Bay need freshwa-
ter to thrive.
Gov. Charlie Crist praised
the ruling and vowed to keep
working toward an agreement
with the state's neighbors to the
north.
"I applaud the court for rec-
ognizing the importance of
maintaining Florida's water flow.
Their decision today moves us
one step closer to providing
essential protection for a signifi-
cant amount of Florida's natural
resources, seafood industry and
economy. I look forward to con-
tinuing to work with Governor
Perdue and Governor Riley to
resolve the long-term water con-
servation issues our states face."
Michael Sole, secretary of
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection,
called it a major victory.

Camp Gordon Johnston Museum attendance soars


The year beginning in June
of 2007 has seen a steady
increase in the number of visi-
tors coming to the WWII
Museum located on Marine
Street in Carrabelle.
Every visitor is requested to
sign in on a "visitor register"
located on a sign in desk and,
according to this register; the
museum will surpass over 2,000
visitors this year.
"We are coming up to the
busiest part of our year with the
Camp Gordon Johnston Days in
March and that is always our
busiest time of the Year," accord-
ing to Linda Minichiello, the
Museum Curator. "Being open
six days weekly will also help,"


she said.
The museum now has vol-
unteers on site from Monday to
Saturday and more and more
visitors are coming in from out-
of-state and staying over-night.
"We see more and more RV
travelers coming in as a result of
our advertising campaign,
brochures, maps and word of
mouth. We see the results espe-
cially from the vacation rental
agencies and the local Forgotten
Coast TV Channel."
Treasurer David Butler stat-
ed that "museum-wise, we have
received a lot of new artifacts
and gifts from veterans and
friends of the museum. We are
in the process of formulating a


five-year growth plan that will
include a new, state-of-the art
educational, military history
museum located adjacent to the
beach used during WWII train-
ing at the camp. This new muse-
um is being located near the
recently renovated Carrabelle
Lighthouse creating a destina-
tion area for Franklin County
and North Florida tourists."
The 13th Annual Camp
Gordon Johnston Days will
begin with a memorial golf tour-
nament in Tallahassee on March
6th. Festivities will be held
March 7-9 in Carrabelle and
will, again, feature all veterans
being welcomed with participa-

Speaking of camellias, bluegrass

and The Panhandle Players


Thought for the week (From
a speech to the Gridiron Club by
John F Kennedy on March 15,
1958): "I have just received the
following wire from my generous
daddy. It says, 'Dear Jack, Don't
buy a single vote more than is
necessary. I'll be damned if I'm
going to pay for a landslide."'
Well, the results are in on.
Amendment 1. Now we have to
get down to the difficult process
of figuring out how to finance
the programs that could be
harmed if we stop here and say,
"Mission accomplished."
Actually, it shouldn't be as
difficult as the fear mongers
make it out to be. Did you ever
notice that when there is talk of
tax cuts, the people who have a
lot of pork they don't want to
give up always try to frighten us
with talk about the loss of police
and fire protection and cuts to
education. They never mention
cutting their pet boondoggles
such as moving roads at taxpay-
ers' expense so big developers
have more room and more valu-
able land to sell for private profit
or dredging rivers for private
commerce even though the work
might harm the fragile ecosys-
tem and cut valuable water stor-
age. There are plenty of places to
cut government expenses with-
out cutting necessary public safe-
ty and education programs. With
all the hue and cry, significant
cuts in those areas are actually
rare.
In the battle over Amend-
ment 1, I was strongly influenced
by the barrage of advertising that
was put out on the few days
before the election. Negatively
influenced, that is. If the adver-
tisers were spending that much
for several slick, expensive
brochures, postage and automat-
ed telephone messages, I could-
n't help but wonder how much
profit they were expecting if they
won and from whose pockets the
profits would come.
Camellia Show
Camellias are a flower with
a very long history of romance
and adventure. From Chinese
tea, to the bosom of "La Dame
aux Camelias," to the buttonhole
of Hercule Poirot, camellias
have fired imaginations for cen-

friend Sgt. Joey Banks from
Eastpoint, .who arrived a few
days ahead of Petsch.
What the soldiers like the
least about their stay abroad is
easy for them to list, after the
separation from family.
"The food leaves a lot to be
desired," Petsch said, "and so do
the living conditions, but it's not
that bad."
Petsch has.a lot to keep him
busy while he is here. Before he
came home on leave, he planned
his wedding to sweetheart Jada
Chason of Eastpoint.
"We' did all the planning
before I left over there," he said,
"so we wouldn't waste any time
once I got here."
Petsch has no regrets about
his choices so far. "I have been in
six years now," he said, "and I
plan to sign .up for six years
more. I am so proud to serve;
this has been the honor of my
life, and a priceless experience.
Not only does it make you grow

tries.
Now camellias are the sub-
jects of a show at the Eastpoint
firehouse on February 9th from
10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. At that time
Frank Venable, Eastpoint resi-
dent and passionate lover of
camellias, will showcase the
beauty of the historic blooms
and explain how people can
grow their own winter-flowering
plants here in Franklin County.
There are between 100 and 250
species of camellia, depending
on which authority you believe,
but all are related to the cup of
tea you enjoy after a walk in the,
brisk winter air. Camellia flowers
can be from % inch to as large as
six inches across and the various
types grow from two feet to over
20 feet tall. Venable will encour-
age people to join with him in
the love of this beautiful flower
and has offered to give a free
one-gallon plant to each person
who subscribes to a membership
in the American Camellia
Society.
Bluegrass
You won't want to miss the
Rivertown Girls if you like good
gospel and Bluegrass music. The
Rivertown Girls, from Blounts-
town, are members of the Gulf
Coast Bluegrass Music Associa-
tion and have played their upbeat
style of music at the Sopchoppy
Opry, the Bluegrass Winterfest,
and many other places. You can
hear them on Saturday, February
23, at 6:30 p.m. in the St. George
Island United Methodist Church
fellowship hall. Everyone is wel-
come. Please bring an appetizer
to share after the concert.

Chris Petsch and Jada
Chason were married on
Sunday, Feb 3, amid the compa-
ny of family and friends in

now before returning to the

Franklin Chronicle
Some of you have been won-
dering what has happened near
The Franklin Chronicle office on
Begonia Street in Eastpoint
where there used to be the begin-
nings of the foundation- for the
theatre building that was Tom
Hoffer's vision for the area. The
space is now a field with no sign
left of what was planned as the
site for the large metal building
that was to be the theatre. The
holes in the ground where foun-
dations were to be poured posed
a danger to unwary visitors and
curious kids, so for safety's sake
they were filled in and the area
.smoothed out. There are present-
ly no plans to build anything
there. In regard to the building
that was to go there, we will have
more news in the near future.
Keep your eye on this column for
plans as they develop.
Just a thought to ponder
when you think, "There oughta

society, the more laws there
will be. In. Hell there will be
nothing but laws, and due
process will be meticulously
observed."

Another hero from Carrabelle r


We seem to just grow heroes
here; maybe it's the water. They
take it with them wherever they
end up; it's part of them.
Not just the quiet heroism of
military service, law enforce-
ment, or firefighting, although
we are well-supplied with that,
too.
The mysterious force within
that hides in ordinary folks until
needed, then it bursts out to
make a difference in a split-sec-
ond that unexpectedly saves a
life, or lives, comes from unlikely
sources.
A Carrabelle family has just
found a hero in their ranks in the
person of their far-off son.
About a year ago, in San
Diego, Calif., Wayne Moeck, the
46-year-old son of Eunice Gay
Moeck, and grandparents Ernest
and Della Gay of Carrabelle,
was on his way to work with his
friend Charles Russell, when
they spotted a house fire with
many children around pointing
to the roof and shouting. All the
shouting was in Spanish, but it
was plain, Moeck said later, that
someone was up there. Without
a thought, Moeck and his friend
leaped into the flaming building
and brought out a couple and
their dog, before firefighters
arrived.
Moeck and Russell both
received a medal of honor, the
state's highest honor, from Gov.
Arnold Schwarzenwegger.
Uncle Mickey Gay and
Aunt Jackie of Carrabelle say
that the entire family is proud of
him "beyond words."
A lifetime love story
At this time of year, our
thoughts dwell on that thing
called "love." Thanks to retailers,
we have a multitude of expres-
sions of our expressions for our
families, spouses, sweethearts or
children'. We can give greeting
cards of hearts and flowers,
sweet treats, or express our love
with scent or flowers; it has all

"Today's decision is a major
victory for Florida in protecting
water flows to the Apalachicola
River and the ecosystem; and it
clearly supports Florida's posi-
tion that United States Army
Corps of Engineers and Georgia
cannot agree to reallocate stor-
age in the Lake Lanier reservoir,
to provide more water for
Atlanta for instance, without
Congressional approval.
"The court's opinion reaf-
firms that if the Corps reallo-
cates storage in the lake, it would
have significant adverse impacts
to the Florida's environment."
In January 2003, the Corps,
Georgia and other parties'
reached an agreement that pro-
vided Georgia at least 20 years of

contracts and reallocated Lake

and industrial uses.

become traditional; a tradition
descended from a third-century
Christian saint said to be the
patron of lovers. Sweet, but for
the last eight years, around this
time, I always remember a man
who made a different kind of dif-
ference, showed a different kind
of love where it was little-noticed
and much needed.'
He was the patron saint and
advisor of children everywhere,
of all ages: children of low self-
esteem; shy; without self-confi-
dence; kids within who are too
skinny, too fat, pushed around
by the dog, never got the atten-
tion of the little red-haired girl
with naturally curly hair, and
never managed to kick the foot-
ball. Charlie Brown gave voice to
that silent child within, and his


case and objected to the settle-
ment agreement. The court ulti-
mately approved the settlement
agreement despite those objec-
tions. Florida appealed that judg-
ment.
Tuesday's court decision
invalidates the 2003 agreement
between the United States Army
Corps of Engineers, the State of
Georgia, Southeastern Federal
Power Customers, Inc. and a
group of- Georgia water supply
providers.
The ruling shouldn't have an
immediate effect on Georgia's
water supply, nor on the state's
desire to reach a long-term
agreement with Alabama and
Florida, said Georgia Gov.
Sonny Perdue's spokesman Bert
Brantley.
"Our focus and goal in this
whole process has been to get an
agreement with Alabama and
Florida, and this ruling doesn't
change that," Brantley said.

Charlie Brown had brief

cherished, and appreciated, and
we lived his triumphs as we did
his disappointments alongside
him, and thanks to the wisdom
of his creator, we all took away
unforgettable pearls of wisdom

- On January 2, 2000, after
almost exactly 50 years of publi-
cation every Sunday, Charles
Schultz announced his retire-
ment due to ill health, and said
goodbye to his fans. The final

Monday, February 13, 2000,
Charles Schultz passed away
among family at his California
home.

"This ruling is one piece, of the
different things we're talking to
our neighbors about."
Teams representing Perdue
and the governors of Alabama
and Florida have been negotiat-
ing a comprehensive plan to
manage the water of the
Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-
Flint (ACF) River Basin. They
are trying to meet a Feb. 15 dead-
line, a date set by U.S.
Department of the Interior
Secretary Dirk Kempthorne.
S The state of Georgia is con-
sidering whether to ask for a
rehearing with the Court of
Appeals, or file an appeal with
the U.S. Supreme Court.
Alabama Gov. Bob Riley
said the legal ruling was "the
most consequential ... in the 18-
year history of the water war."
"[The ruling] establishes
that the decades-old practice of
Atlanta taking more and more
water from the federal reservoirs
in the Coosa and Chattahoochee
Rivers without any legal authori-
ty to do so will not stand," Riley
said in. a statement.
The court said that the
Georgia-Corps deal would
reduce the amount of water that
flows downstream, harming
those two states' interests.
Florida wants to maintain
enough water flow to protect the
seafood industry in the
Apalachicola Bay.

Chronicle Correspondent
Following are highlights of
the Franklin County Commis-
sion meeting held Tuesday, Feb.
5. Commissioners Cheryl Sand-
ers, Bevin Putnal, Noah Lockley
Jr., Russell Crofton, and Joseph
(Smokey) Parrish in attendance.
Dan Rothwell, -County
Engineer, reported on the repair
of faulty construction of 3,000
feet of County Road 67 from
Lake Morality Road south.
There was general discussion
about the deteriorating condition
of Franklin County roads in gen-
eral but in particular those that
get heavy overloaded truck traf-
fic. Rothwell explained that the
county has worked out an agree-
ment with Preble-Rish, Inc. -for
the road repair. Commissioner
Sanders felt all of the county
roads should be considered for
repair if the funds are available.
It was pointed out that funds that
should have gone for road repair
have been going into Weems
Hospital. Motion was made to
have CR 67 repaired and passed
with Sanders voting no.
Rothwell ask for commis-
sioners' approval of a boat ramp
design, specification, and plans
for Eastpoint. Four voted for
approval after County Attorney
Mike Shuler reviews the con-
tract.
The bid by VCL, a civil con-
tracting firm, for construction of
a boat ramp on St. George Island
was discussed. Commissioner
Putnal expressed concern about
the firm having the right equip-
ment to do the job. Rothwell
explained that he had checked
on the contracting firm and
Preble-Rish had assured him that
the firm had the necessary equip-
ment to get the job done right.
The motion to accept the bid
passed.
The request for a grant to
build a boat ramp on Bluff Road
was rejected by Northwest Water
Management with suggestions
on how to submit a request in the
future that might get granted.
Rothwell said he would follow
up on the suggestions.
Rothwell finished his report
with the following items: The
airport road was described as
being structurally sound but at
this time not pretty; Drainage
problems on Linden Road; Dune
walk-overs on Alligator Point.
Commissioners approved
permission for a permit to build
a plane hangar on Dan Garlick's
property and payment of the
invoice for construction of a
path on St. George Island.
Lombardi Property
At 10 a.m., commissioners
opened a hearing on considera-
tion of the purchase of the
Lombardi Property as a boat
landing and unloading facility
for seafood workers and the pub-
lic. After much discussion it was
decided that the negotiation on
the price of the property should
continue with commissioners
meeting again at 9 a.m. on
Thursday, February 7, at the
Armory in Apalachicola. The
current price of $1.55 million is
good only until Friday, February

Franklin is a "financially con-
strained" county, a request was

A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


The Franklin Chronicle


A humble hero
At the emotional meeting of the Lanark Village Water and Sewer
District Board on Monday, one man sat silently in the audience as the
debate came to a climatic ending.
Bill Snyder is his name.
If you didn't know the background, you'd never guess this unas-
suming man was the flashpoint for con-
troversy. But that's what he's been for
months now.
My impression of Snyder is that
he's a mild-manner guy not particularly
comfortable in the spotlight. My impres-
sion is that he saw things that made him
question the direction of the Water
District. He got involved. He asked
tough questions. He challenged authori-
ty.
T4 E&tU4 And he suffered for it.
He was beaten up by a younger man
By Russell Roberts nearly twice his size before one meeting.
And later-to the amazement of many
witnesses-he was arrested while the
man who accosted him is portrayed in court files as the victim.
Still, Snyder remained relentless and never gave up the cause. He,
no doubt, has become a humble hero to many of his neighbors.
He didn't do it alone, though. Many people made this happen.
Pardon me in advance for leaving anyone out.
Carrabelle city officials, especially City Manager John
Mclnnis and Mayor Curley Messer: A number of times, it would
have been easy for them to throw up their hands and walk away. But
they knew walking away would have left the people of Lanark with
no recourse, so they saw it through.
Water Commissioner Pauline Sullivan. She steadfastly pushed
for the merger, never wavering even when the Board was stacked
against her, and even when the Board attorney filed ridiculous and
unfounded charges against her with the Ethics Commission.
Water Commissioner Raymond Courage. A past Board mem-
ber, he agreed to sit in the hot seat once again and stand up for what
was right.
Franklin County commissioners: They lent support to Lanark
residents just by their presence at recent Lanark Board meetings.
Water District Board attorney Brian Armstrong: In previous
meetings, he often took verbal abuse from those who thought he was
trying to circumvent the merger. But his words must have been a wel-
come relief to most of those at the meeting when he explained to
Chairperson Barbara Rohrs that the law was not on her side.
The residents of Lanark. Not every resident has been involved
in this effort. Some residents, I'm sure, opposed the merger, and oth-
ers didn't really care. But there was a core of Lanark residents, some
of whom formed the Concerned Citizens of Lanark Village, who
took the time to attend every meeting and make their voices heard.
Time after time, this not-so-silent majority responded to disappoint-
ment with determination.
I've never liked the cliche "majority rules." It's a perversion of
the concept of democracy. In a democracy, no one "rules." In a
democracy, the minority matters too. At the same time, when a
majority speaks as clearly as did the majority in Lanark, it's not right
that they're ignored by their elected representatives. That's not
democracy.
'But finally, democracy worked this week in Lanark Village.

Alan Greensp;
My editor has advised me that my Eastpointer
column should be concerned with local people and
local problems or at least have some tie-in to the
local community. Soo...
I once knew an oysterman who looked exactly
like Alan Greenspan. And speaking of Alan
Greenspan, I have several Eastpointer type obser-
vations to offer.


Being a student
of economic thought
and theory, I have
been listening to Alan
Greenspan give his
lectures on TV for
years and I even pur-


chased two or three of
his past publications.
My analysis of Mr. T i
Greenspan has al-
ways been: What in By Richard E. Noble
the world is that man
talking about?
I would sit in front of the TV and make a call
for silence in the room each and every time Mr.
Greenspan would appear on the TV giving his eco-
nomic address to the Congress. I would listen to
every word assiduously, determined to get "The
Message" from the Prophet.
After he would finish, .my wife would ask,
Richard what did he say? My usual answer went
something like this: Well, he said that the economy
is good and bad and that it has a tendency to go up
and down; those who can afford to wait should and
those who can't shouldn't; he said that we should
all be concerned and worried butothat we should
retain our faith in the fundamentals of economic
thought and not panic; he said that some people
will probably benefit and that other people proba-
bly won't.
"And what has all of that got to do with the
price of tea in China?"
Well, actually he did mention the price of tea
in China and he said that it may go up but that
there were extraneous forces that indicated that the
possibility of a downward trend due to tea coming
from Nairobi could possibly be an influence giving
some concern to Chinese tea exporters but
Americans who drink primarily black tea which
comes from the lower regions of Botswana really
have no need to be overly concerned-but of
course Britain is an entirely other story.
"So basically he said nothing?"
Exactly.
Now recently Mr. Greenspan has appeared on


an had my job
TV to tell the nation that for his entire stay at the
Federal Reserve he has in effect said nothing. He
admitted that over the years he has purposely said
nothing because for him to say something would
have put the onus of responsibility for the future
world economy on his shoulders. He admitted that
he said nothing for all of these years intentionally.
Now, in response to questions about his job at
the Federal Reserve he explained that as head of
the Federal Reserve he tried his best to do as little
as possible since he is an avid believer in the
Laissez Faire philosophy.
So basically as head of the Federal Reserve he
did and said nothing and now he has just written a
book that is selling by the millions explaining why
he did nothing and how his doing and saying noth-
ing has benefited the nation and the world.
I have come to the conclusion that this man
had my job. I mean that is the job that I have always
dreamed of. Alan Greenspan made big bucks for
doing this job where he did and said nothing by his
own admission. But he actually earned nothing
when compared to what he would have made if he
had remained in private enterprise where I imagine
he would have had to do and possibly say some-
thing. But, of course, he can't tell us what he would
have said and done if he had remained in private
enterprise because his revelation of such informa-
tion would change the course of the economic
world.
Where do I apply for that position? I can do
that. And I could do it well. I am sure of it. Every
place and position that I have ever held in my life
others have accused me or said flat-out that I was
doing nothing and that what I had to say about
what I was doing amounted to nothing whatsoever.
I certainly have the resume to fulfill the posi-
tion as head of the Federal Reserve Bank of
America following the Alan Greenspan guidelines.
I have no doubt about it. I can do and say nothing
with the best of God's creatures-just give me the
chance and stand back and watch me not do any-
thing. Actually, just keep reading this column and
see if you can point out where anything that I have
ever said'has ever accomplished more than nothing
whatsoever. Clearly the proof is in the pudding.
RichardE. Noble is a freelance writer and has been a res-
ident of Eastpoint for around 30 years now. He has
authored two books: 'A Summer with Charlie," which is
currently listed on Amazon.com, .and "Hobo-ing
America," which should be listed on Amazon in the not
too distant future. Most recently he completed his first
novel "Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother which will
be published soon.

Citizens' comments and survey results promise progress


BY LAUREL NEWMAN
Chronicle Correspondent
At the first Waterfront
Opportunity Town Meeting, the
next steps toward gaining a con-
sensus to shape Carrabelle's
goals for their waterfront were
taken, and the results of a survey
taken to try to gain a focus were
examined.
After introducing the board
of the waterfront partnership
and giving them credit for the
quick accomplishment of meet-
ing the grant match requirements
for the first phase, Director
Tamara Allen turned the meet-
ing over to Barbara Butz, the sec-
retary of Carrabelle Cares, a liai-
son of citizens and advisory
board with experience and
expertise who have joined with
the waterfront opportunity initia-
tive.
City Commissioner Richard
Sand, representing the city at the
meeting, asked to speak early as
he had to leave the meeting
shortly.
"I am sure proud to see all
these people here tonight," he
said, "and it is encouraging, as
far as I am concerned, you have
my, and the city's full support.
I'm not sure I'm on the same
page with this funky commission
we (the city) have right now, but
this is something we all want."
Taking his leave, he left the
meeting to Butz.
"This is the first in a.series of
meetings," Butz said, "designat-
ed 'charting the course.'"
She continued, "At the end
of this first part, we will owe the
DCA (Department of Commun-
ity Affairs), a plan identifying
resources, funding, and the
results of the survey which will
help us narrow and define our
goals for the waterfront."
Aside, to the audience, "I
wanted to avoid using the "V"
word tonight." (Visioning-a
term often heard during other


John McInnis and Tamara Allen were among those at the meeting.


community input sessions on
other topics in recent years.)
Butz asked the inner ring of
the audience to pass the micro-
phone around, state names and
why each person was attending,
and at least one thing they hoped
to learn.
Roger Bybee said that his
wife made him come, and he
wanted to hear other opinions.
"Gene" and his wife said
that Leslie Cox made them
come, and because they enjoy
the water, wanted to see what
there was to do that they could
help with.
Lynn and Jim Durke moved
here to enjoy the waterfront, and
wanted to learn how to help pre-
serve it.
Arlene Oehler, who is
involved with the Carrabelle
Historical Society, said she was
concerned with preserving the
historic aspects of the water-


front.
Gregory Newman, a 10-year
resident and marine-based busi--

Partnership meeting.


area. "Carrabelle is a beautiful
place," he said. "We should
focus on making the town more
attractive to tourists to help our
own economy, and keep the
beauty we already have. The
tourists come to us, and they
leave nothing but footprints."
Butz resumed, "What we
need is a course of action, new
solutions, and focus on our core
issues, which are: to protect and
preserve public access to the
waterways; cultural, historical
and environmental resource
identification, the revitalization
of the traditional economy and
the working waterfront."
Finally, she stressed the need
to plan ahead for hazard mitiga-
tion on the waterfront, to mini-
mize damages and speed recov-
ery from disaster-borne dam-
ages.
The results of the communi-
ty survey were displayed on a pie
chart, showing the 89 returned
surveys and their answers.
Out of 89 returns, the
resounding majority came in on
the side of environmental protec-
tion, a viable seafood industry,
protection and preservation of
the sea grass beds, public access,
and seafood dockage; followed
by more boat ramps, fishing'
docks, and boardwalks, shops
and store along the river.
Finishing dead last with an
unenthusiastic score of 9, were
more condos along Highway 98.
Butz declared that there are
really no surprises in the survey
result, that it did its job in identi-
fying the citizens' goals. With
David Butler's comment that it
would be the difficult part to get
all the goals to intertwine to suc- .
ceed, the group. separated to
focus on four important aspects:
public access, cultural resources,
environment, and waterfront
economy. The results of those
discussion groups will be pre-
sented at the next town meeting
later in the month.

February is Florida Hiking Trails Month


Recognizing February as
Florida Hiking Trails Month, the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP) is join-
ing the Florida Trail Association
to encourage Floridians to take
advantage of Florida's extensive
trail system and celebrate the
40th anniversary of the National
Trails System Act.
"February is a great time for
Floridians to promote environ-
mental stewardship and adopt a
healthy lifestyle by exploring the


more than 4,000 miles of trails
Florida has to offer," said DEP's
Office of Greenways & Trails
Director Jena B. Brooks. "We are
proud to celebrate Florida's
Hiking Trails Month and the
40th anniversary of an important
milestone in the preservation of
natural lands and resources."
S The National Trails System
Act was first signed into law by
President Lyndon Johnson in
1968 to promote preservation of
the Nation's open-air, outdoor


and historic resources for public
enjoyment. The idea was to cre-
ate scenic, historic and recre-
ation trails that would share the
experiences of the Nation's
native people and pioneers and
prevent history from being paved
over. Today, the National Trail
System boasts more than 40,000
miles of trails, including the
Florida National Scenic Trail,
one of eight congressionallydes-
ignated scenic trails in the
United States.


"This legislation created the
pathway for the national trails
program which now consists of
eight National Scenic Trails, 13
National Historic Trails and
approximately one thousand
National Recreational Trails,"
explained Florida Trail Associa-
tion Executive Director Deborah
Stewart-Kent. "This year we also
celebrate the 25th anniversary of
the Florida Trail's designation as
a National Scenic Trail."
The Florida National Scenic


Trail is the largest in the state
and will ultimately extend 1,400
miles from the Gulf Islands
National Seashore in the
Panhandle to the Florida Keys.
This national treasure includes
loop and linear trails on public
lands throughout Florida. The
sections are built and maintained
by volunteers from the Florida
Trail Association, in cooperation
with the U.S. Forest Service, and
include state greenways and
trails.

Fish & Wildlife Commission
FWC Bear Meeting: FWC
biologists, wildlife officers and
staff met with members of the
Franklin County Bear Work-
group on January 30th at the
'Division of Forestry Office in
Carrabelle. The group decided
that the first step to take in an
effort to reduce-"bear" problems
is to begin an education program
for people in the county. Initial
educational ideas/efforts include
working with the local cable
channel; present bear programs
at local community organiza-
tion/agency meetings; work
with Franklin County School
administrators on bear issues;
and work with area builders,
contractors and rental agencies to
discuss actions they can take to
help minimize bear problems. In
addition FWC is currently work-
ing with Waste Pro to install
bear-resistant commercial dump-
sters in key locations.
FWC Meeting February 6-
7: The FWC will meet February
6-7 at the Bay Point Marriot,
Panama City Beach for their
next regular meeting. Marine
fisheries issues will be on
February 7th, including a final
.public meeting on the proposed
rule amendments for red snapper
in the Gulf of Mexico state
waters. The key changes would
reduce the daily recreational bag
limit from 4 to 2 fish/day, with
a zero daily bag limit for captains
and crews of Gulf for-hire ves-
sels, reduce the size limit and
change the season from April 15-
October 31 to June 1- September


Workshop will focus on bears


A workshop to discuss black
bears has been scheduled for Feb.
20, 8:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., fol-
lowed by an evening talk at 7
p.m. at the FSU Coastal and
Marine Laboratory.
The workshop is intended
for local decision makers such as
developers, land managers, elect-
ed officials, county/city plan-
ners, transportation planners,
concerned citizens and others
interested in issues related to
bears and bear habitat.
Subjects to be discussed will
include best management prac-
tices, bear sensitive development,
local bear populations, dealing
with/preventing bear problems,
eco-passes and more, and will
include a visit to a local develop-
ment to see bear friendly innova-


tions in practice.
At the evening bear talk
from 7-8:30 at the St. Joe
SummerCamp events room, the
public can come hear from the
"bear experts" about our very
active local bears.
Since 1980 the black bear
population has been steadily
expanding in Florida along with
the human population. As a
result, bears and humans are
encountering one another more
than ever. There are benefits in
living in harmony with bears.
Natural areas that support bears
are home to many other animals.

Peter F. Crowell, CFP, Presents

Weekly economic update for
the week of February 4, 2008


Quote of the week
"Money can't buy happiness, but neither can poverty." -Leo
Rosten
Another rate cut
The Federal Reserve cut its key interest rate to 3.0% on January
30, and the Dow gained 175 points in 45 minutes. 1 But Fitch Ratings
stifled the rally by lowering the credit
rating of Financial Guaranty, a major
bond insurer. A day later, Standard &
Poor's followed suit.2 Moody's
Investors Service said it may downgrade
bond insurers as well.
How about another?
The U.S. lost 17,000 jobs in Janu-
ary, according to the Labor Depart-
l I. i4 ment-the first decline in payrolls since
2003. (None of the 80 economists
Sponsored by polled by Bloomberg News had forecast
Peter F Crowell, CFP such a decrease.) April futures on the
Chicago Board of Trade put the odds of
a March rate cut at 70% late last week.
4Q GDP: 0.6%
This troubling statistic comes from the Commerce Department.
Overall 2007 GDP was 2.2%. Consumer spending grew 2% in the 4Q
and 2.9% for 2007, the weakest annual growth since 2003.
Stimulus plan in Senate
On Capitol Hill, Democrats and Republicans debated rival eco-
nomic stimulus plans. The bill approved in the House of
Representatives gives single and joint filers tax rebates of up to $600
and $1,200, plus $300 per child for families. Democratic Senate lead-
ers maintain the plan will receive President Bush's signature by
February 15.
New home sales sank 26% in 2007
So says the Commerce Department. Statistically, it was the
biggest drop on record (recordkeeping began in 1963). The December
median new home price was $219,200, a -10.9% drop from a year ear-
lier.
Stocks gain
Big indexes made big advances, and Microsoft made a $44.6 bil-
lion bid for Yahoo! Friday.

Riddle of the week
Draw a 3x3 grid so it has 9 boxes. Write a number from 0 to 8 in
each box so that going side to side, up and down, and diagonally the
sum is 12. Each number can be used only once. How do you do it?

This Week's Answer

Cogno's Corner

Answer to question #134 is: True.
From the surface of the Moon, the sky always appears
black, because it has no atmosphere to scatter sunlight the
way the Earth's sky does. Scattering of light is why our
sky looks bright and blue in the daytime.

Commission from Page 3
Hospital update
Hospital Update. Hospital
requests $325,000 for a Breast
Cancer Care Center that can be
expanded into other forms of
cancer care. Commissioners dis-
cussed the need for this plus a
need for a Kidney Dialysis.Care
Center. Informed commissioners
that the hospital will not ask to
establish a line of credit. The
hospital is trying to move for-
ward with developing plans for a
clinic in Carrabelle but will work
within the time frame of the
sales tax revenues. The hospital
will not be seeking any opera-
tional support from property
taxes in next year's budget but
will receive the third quarter sub-
sidy budgeted in this year. The
firm Pioneer, which runs clinics
in Mississippi, is flying Chair-
man Lockley to take a look at
how they run their clinics.
Hospital cash has gotten down
as low as $40,000 but is now
back up to around $350,000.
Request for commission-
ers' action to sign use agreement
with DEP to allow county con-
tractor on state property in the
event the county moves forward
with beach renourishment.
Getting state money for the
renourishment project is contin-
gent on putting sand on state
beaches according to their
agreed upon conditions.
Commissioners will sign the
DEP agreement.
Carrabelle Beach, LLC
requests an extension for the
third time for approval on a
hotel/condominium. The devel-
opment was to contain 30 units
on 0.76 acre. Commissioners
declined approval at this time.
Comp Plan update.
County staff and DCA have



Retired

educators

meet
The January Franklin/Gulf
Retired Educators Association
(F/GREA) meeting was held at
Caroline's Restaurant in Apal-
achicola. Topics included:
Annada Faircloth ann-
ounced that letters have been
sent to Franklin and Gulf
County fifth grade teachers
announcing the Florida Retired
Educators Association (FREA)
fifth grade essay contest. The
topic is "What My Grandparent
or Grandparent Figure Means to
Me." The unit award for the win-
ner will be a $25 U.S. Savings
Bond. The three top winners in
both counties will also receive a
$5 certificate for Burger King or
McDonald's. The state winner
will receive $25 and a $200 U.S.
Savings Bond.
A necrology service was
conducted for two deceased
members, Martha Kersey, who
retired from the Franklin County
School District, and Ela Sutton,
who retired from Gulf County.
Members in attendance shared
memories of their friendships
with the deceased women teach-
ers.
Beverly Kelley, FREA
District 2 Director, has arranged
for a bus to transport members to
the FREA.Assembly meeting to
be held in Miami from May 28-
30.


been negotiating several techni-
cal changes to the Comp Plan.
DCA land use changes recom-
mended:
An 86-acre land use change
from Public Facility to Mixed
Use Residential. This will sup-
port the Pepperbrush Develop-
ment, which is the mixed use res-
idential development associated
with the nursing home just north
of St. James Bay Golf Course.
DCA objected to a land use
change for: (A) A 15.32 acre res-
idential development on Mill
Road because of potential
impact to wetlands. (B) DCA
first objected to a 45.51 acre resi-
dential development north of
Carrabelle off of Kendrick
Road. DCA then dropped its
objection when the developer
made the following modifica-
tions to the plan; reduce the size
of the plan from 45.51 acres
down to 7 acres, which is the
number of lots to be created. The
remainder of the property will be
placed in a conservation ease-
ment. The development on the
property will be served by per-
formance based treatment sys-
tems that are more effective than'
aerobic systems in removing
nutrients, but is more expensive.
The developer will address con-
cerns about potential urban
sprawl from the development.
On land use policies, DCA
has agreed to the following:
(A) Increasing the intensity
of development allowed in the
commercial area of St. George
Island so that it conforms with
the intensity of commercial dis-
tricts around the state.
(B) DCA has removed its
,objection to the Board reducing
the amount of high density land
in the Eastpoint Urban Service
Area from 10% down to 3%.
(C) Reducing residential
densities in the Eastpoint Urban
Services Area from 15 units to 10
units and the inclusion of certain
other development standards for
mixed use and attempted to


change the open space require-
ments in PUDs to 20% from the
current 33% open space require-
ment. DCA will drop its objec-
tions to this change if the county
will make modifications to
Policy 8.7 Future Land use,
which specifically deals with
open space.
(D) Future Land Use.
Currently Policy 8.7 requires
PUDs to have 33% of the site in
open space. Policy 8.7 does not
say where on the site the open
space has to occur. Because pub-
lic comment on this project
(Porthaven) focused on the
waterfront area, Pierce proposed
to DCA that the county provide
incentives for developers to pro-
vide open space along the water,
because it is the land between the
highway and the water that
needs to be kept open for two
important reasons... environ-
mental and visual. So Policy 8.7
as discussed with DCA would
include a new storm water stan-
dard; a definition of "open
space" and a multiplier added to
encourage developers to dedicate
open space between the public
road and the water.
Pierce told commissioners
that there needs to be a public
hearing on the proposed changes
before being approved. He will
keep the Board informed of any
changes.
Mike Shuler, County Attor-
ney, said he had no report at this
time. Commissioners commend-
ed him on his help with resolving
the problem with LVW&SD
Board and facilitating a merger
between Carrabelle Utility. and
the Lanark Village District.
The meeting was open for
public comment. Bruce Drye
and Bruce Hall presented sugges-
tions for changes in the Turtle
Lighting Ordinance for Franklin
County. Commissioners said
they would review the proposal
and try to get the revisions
adopted before May.

Deer season isn't over yet


If you're like me and haven't
bagged that monster buck yet, or
maybe you live in the central or
southern part of the state and
haven't come to terms that deer
season's over for the year,
February might have just what
the doctor ordered.
You see, there's a second
phase of the muzzleloading gun
season Feb. 14-24, but only in the
Northwest Hunting Zone.
Immediately following the
close of general gun season in
the Northwest Zone, this muz-
zleloading season offers contin-
ued deer and hog hunting oppor-
tunities. The best part is it occurs
during the rut in some areas and
offers the best chance of taking a
trophy whitetail. For instance, in
most parts of the Apalachicola
National Forest and in Gadsden
County, the rut's still going
strong during this time. Also, on
Eglin Air Force Base, the rut's
just coming in.
The hunt is for wild hogs
and bucks with at least one antler
five inches or more in length
above the hairline. On private
land, the daily bag limit is two
deer. Bag limits and antler size
for deer on wildlife management
areas (WMAs) can differ, so
check the area's brochure before
you hunt.
It's important to note-no
turkeys may be taken during this
season. On private lands, cross-
bows can be used during this sea-
son, as well as muzzleloaders
and bows, but you must have the
$5 muzzleloading gun permit to
hunt, no matter which method of
take you choose to use. On
WMAs, this late season is still
referred to as the archery/muz-
zleloading gun season. Only
bows and muzzleloaders can be
used no crossbows are allowed,


O4uta e Wook


By Tony Young, FWC

unless you possess a Disabled
Person Crossbow Permit. To
hunt during this season on
WMAs, you must have an
Archery Permit if you use a bow
and a Muzzleloading Gun
Permit if you use a muzzle-
loader. Bows and crossbows
must have a minimum draw
weight of 35 pounds, and hand-
held releases on bows are permit-
ted. For taking deer, broadheads
must have at least two sharpened
edges with a minimum width of
7/8 inch. Muzzleloaders that fire
single bullets, when used for tak-
ing deer, must be at least .40-cal-
iber. Those firing two or more
balls must be 20-gauge or larger.
You're allowed to take deer
and hogs over feeding stations on
private land, as long as the feed-
ing station has been established
for at least six months prior to
the season and maintained year-
round. It's illegal to use bait on
WMAs.
Some things you can't do
during this late season include:
using dogs (except leashed dogs
can be used to track wounded
game); shooting swimming deer;
using explosive or drug-injecting
arrows; using muzzleloaders
with self-contained cartridge

Need your boat put away?
At Scipio Creek Marina in the backwaters of Apalachicola, they just grab their special fork-
lift for the job. Designed to lower the huge forks below ground level, as well as above, the
forklift at Scipio does the job. The forks extend below the waterline from the dock, and the
boat is then guided between and nestled in the forks. The boat is then transferred to its land-
based dock, either in Scipio's storage building, or surrounding area. Talk about efficiency. It
all seems too easy.


The challenge of nonnative fish


Nonnative freshwater fishes
and aquatic plants present chal-
lenges to Florida's native species:,
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
scientists work diligently with
the public to conserve the state's
native freshwater wildlife and
ecosystems.
Thirty-four nonnative fresh-
water fishes, introduced from
other countries, currently repro-
duce in Florida. Almost all of
these introductions resulted from.
individuals releasing unwanted
aquarium or food fishes, and/or
the flooding of aquaculture


-By Bob Wattendorf,
FWC

ponds. In addition, normative
plants, such as water hyacinth,.
and invertebrates, such as island


.apple snails, can create environ-
mental problems.
Consequently,. it is illegal to
release any nonnative fish or
other nonnative organism into
waters of the state.- Anyone
wantingto dispose of live nonna-
tive aquarium fish should give
them to a friend or an aquarium
store, or euthanize them by low-
ering the water temperature with
ice or freezing them in a plastic
bag.
During 2007, FWC part-
nered with public and private
entities to post 400 "Stop
Aquatic Hitchhiker" signs at
boat ramps, as part of a national
campaign. The signs remind
boaters to clean their boats, trail-
ers or recreational equipment of
mud, plants or animals, and to
drain and dry their equipment to
prevent-movement of nuisance
species between water bodies.
Partners included the Nature
Conservancy, U.S. Forest
Service, U.S. National Park,
Service, and Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer
Services, Division of Forestry.
Nonnative fishes thrive in
Florida, partly because of our
subtropical climate and because
aquatic habitats have been dra-
matically altered. In some cases,
such as southeast Florida canals,
nonnative fish's specialized
spawning and rearing tactics
(like mouth brooding), may pro-
vide them an advantage.
Elsewhere, efforts to minimize
water-level fluctuations in lakes
have caused changes in plant
communities and increased the
muck on the bottom of lakes,
which often favors normative
species.
In Florida, there are two
legally introduced normative
fish: friploid grass carp and but-
terfly peacock bass. They are
used as biological controls for
excessive growths of aquatic veg-
Setation and overabundant forage
fishes.
The triploid grass carp is a
functionally sterile fish produced
,and certified in hatcheries. Since
they do not reproduce, periodic
stockings are required to control
aquatic vegetation. During the
past 20 years, results have gener-
ally been favorable.

activities will also include educational information regarding col-
lege and how to manage their money and time well.. All who attend
will be awarded equal amounts of the Project Graduation 2008
Scholarship Fund that comes directly-from the Living Tree
Donation Fundraiser.
This program not only helps the graduating students, you will also
be beautifying our new "Franklin County School Campus" all the
trees purchased will be planted on the school grounds for all to see.
for future years to come. As an appreciation to your donations, we

BY STEVE MARTIN
Hardcover, 299 pages ($25)
Martin's
unflinchingly
personal
memoir of
his troubled
childhood,
early career
and eventual
trajectory to
stand-up-
comedy
superstar-
dom is a riveting, revealing read.
It'll make you see the "Wild and
Crazy Guy" in a totally new
light-one that gives fresh illu-
mination to his act and engag-
ingly unpacks the family ten-
sions, anxiety attacks, career


The Most Extreme:
Season 1

DVD ($24.95)
Think
you're fast?
You couldn't
begin to keep
up with the
s basil isk
lizard, a crea-
ture so fleet it
can run on
water. Think
you're smart?
Try to figure
out the dance of the honeybee,
which tells other hive members
where to find food. Hungry?
Don't get into an eating contest


with a Tasmanian Devil, which
can swallow up to 40 percent of
its weight in half an hour. These
thirteen episodes of the popular
Animal Planet series take a fasci-
nating, up-close look at some of
Mother Nature's most formida-
bly equipped and functionally
enabled creatures. And even
though you'll never beat 'em,
you'll certainly enjoy getting to
know why they're all at the top
of their games.

In The Heat of the
Night: 40th Anniversary
Collector's Edition

DVD ($19.98)
In this award-winning, land-
mark '60s crime drama, a black
"Yankee" cop (Sidney Poitier) is
wrongly accused of murder
while visiting his mother in a


s m al
Mississippi
town, where
the bigoted
police chief
(Rod Steiger)
eventually
comes to see
him as an
ally and not a
suspect. The
racial tensions are as raw, close
to the surface and tightly drawn
as ever in this outstanding, newly
enhanced commemorative DVD.
Bonus features that include a
closer look at "The Slap Heard
Round the World," the ground-
breaking scene in which Poitier
smashes Hollywood's "color bar-
rier" when his character smacks
a snooty white aristocrat.

At The Grammys


BY KEN
EHRLICH
Softcover,
334 pages ($29.95)
What you see on television
at music's biggest night (this
year's telecast is set for Feb. 10)
can be riveting. But what you
don't see is even better. Author
Ehrlich, the executive producer
for each year's Grammy Awards
since 1980, unwraps a bonanza
of behind-the-scene details and
first-person stories about the
groundbreaking performances
(Melissa Etheridge bravely fac-
ing the spotlight after her cancer,
her bald head shining), nerve-
wracking backstage decisions
(pull the plug on Frank Sinatra,
or let him babble?) and high-
powered star wrangling that go
into making the Grammys the
most talked-about awards show
on TV.

VA clinic will be in Jackson County


Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-North Florida) has announc-
ed that the Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA) has chosen
a facility in Marianna to house
the new community-based out-
patient clinic in Jackson County.
The veterans' clinic will be
located on U.S. Highway 90, just
east of the State Road 71 inter-
section, at the former medical
practice of Dr. Robert Hoff. The
VA has entered into a lease
agreement with the new owner,
and the renovations will begin
soon. The VA hopes to be
accepting patients by late spring.

Within the next several weeks,
the VA will begin the recruit-
ment process for the approxi-
mately 20 employment positions
at the clinic.
"With over 75,000 veterans
in North Florida, I have been
working for some time to
demonstrate to the VA the imme-
diate need for a veterans' clinic
in Jackson County," Boyd stated.
"Our veterans need healthcare
services closer to their homes,
and this new facility will do just
that."
Currently, veterans in Jack-
son County and surrounding


areas must travel to Panama
City, Tallahassee, Lake City,-
Pensacola, or Biloxi, Mississippi,
for their healthcare needs. The
VA anticipates that 3,574 exist-
-ing patients and 310 new
patients will be treated in
Jackson County.
Since 2004, Congressman
Boyd has been working with.the
VA to move forward with the
plans for a clinic in Jackson
County. In 2006, Boyd brought
former VA Under Secretary for
Health, Dr. Jonathan B. Perlin,
to Marianna so that he could
meet with local officials.

Simple tips to squelch a squeak


Dear Jane,
I know it shouldn't be too
hard, but how do I stop my door
from squeaking every time I
enter the room?!
Frankie K.
Dear Frankie,
Before that door drives you
stark, raving nuts, try the follow-
ing quick fixes in the order
below:
Squirt a little household pen-
etrating oil or WD-40 on the
hinges. Be careful not to spray
the door or walls. Work that
door back and forth a few times.
Lubricate again and wipe up the
mess.
Jane Tip: Hold a rag around
the outside of the hinges to pro-
tect from overshoot.
Squirt a little dry lubricant,
such as powdered graphite into
the hinges. (Yes, it's the same
sort of graphite found in pen-
cils.) It's very slick and it can be
messy. Work it back and forth
until the door is quiet.
Jane Tip: When you're
done with your hinges, squirt a


By Heidi Baker
and Eden Jarrin
little in your locks to keep them
operating smoothly. You can find
powdered graphite at most hard-
'ware stores wherever locks are
sold.
Pull the pins out of the
hinges to remove the door, and
then lubricate the hinges from
the inside out. The pin is the bolt
that runs through the center of
the hinge. Carefully pry it up
from under its cap using a screw-
driver blade. If the pins are stuck
(which often happens if they've
been painted over) you'll need to
knock them loose from the bot-


tom. Use a nail set and a ham-
mer and gently tap them upward.
SWiggle them out and pull the
door off.
Put the doors on some news-
paper to protect the floor. Spray
the hinge and pins with WD-40,
then clean and smooth them by
rubbing with some fine steel
wool. When you're done wipe
them down, and then coat with
penetrating oil (or, in a pinch use
petroleum jelly). Reassemble the
door and replace the pins (you'll
want some help). Work it back
and forth a few times.
The three tips above will
cure 99% of squeaks. Part of the
1% club? Lucky you, you get to
replace the hinges themselves (as
if you needed an excuse to head
for the hardware store.)
Buy a set of replacement
hinges that are the exact same
size and profile as the old ones
(you did bring them along didn't
you?) Replace the components
and reassemble your door
Ah, peace and quiet at last.
For more great tips and


tricks and project ideas, visit us
online at www.BeJane.com.
Heidi Baker and Eden Jarrin, oth-
erwise known as The Janes, lived in
homes they didn't love. They decided
to do something about it, but when
they looked for support and advice
there wasn't anything out there that
spoke directly to women. So with
sheer will and determination,
through trial and error, they began
transforming their homes into some-
thing that reflected their individual
personalities. And in the process,
they were surprised at how this
change affected others in their lives.
Suddenly their friends felt empow-
ered to take on their own home
improvement projects and Heidi and
Eden realized a change within them-
selves: they had developed more self-
confidence through doing home
improvement projects that transcend-
ed into other parts of their lives. The
Janes quickly realized that there was
a community of hundreds of thou-
sands of women that were just like
them. They took it upon themselves
to create the top resource for women
in home improvement, thus was
born, Be Jane.

EARTH


TALKS
Questions & Answers
About Our Environment

Dear EarthTalk:
What is the status of sharks
around the world? I see occa-
sional stories about sharks
attacking humans, but on bal-
ance aren't we a lot more brutal
to them then they are to us?
Pam Hitschler, Radnor, PA
It's true that humans do a lot
more damage to shark popula-
tions than vice versa. Marine
biologists report that sharks are
in rapid decline around the
world. In the North Atlantic
Ocean, shark populations have
declined more than 50 percent
over the past 20 years alone, with
some species now nearing
extinction.
Experts see the primary
cause as overfishing, which
depletes sharks as well as their
prey. Sharks are especially vul-
nerable to illegal "longlines"
(fishing nets strung across
dozens if not hundreds of miles
of ocean), where they get inad-
vertently snared along with the
tuna and swordfish fishermen
intend to catch.
Rising demand for shark fin
soup in is also contributing to the
demise of sharks. According to a
report by Wildaid, shark fins are
among the most expensive
seafood products in the world,
selling for some $700 per kilo-
gram on the Hong Kong market.
With prices like that, many long-
line fishermen, who are already
operating illegally, are happy to
augment their incomes by
finningg" a few sharks along the
way. (Finning is the practice of
removing a fin from a shark and
discarding the rest of the carcass
at sea.)
Often; threatened wildlife
species manage to maintain their
numbers in spite of excessive
human predation. But sharks
face an especially uphill battle,
says renowned shark expert
Ransom Myers, because they
"take a long time to mature and
have relatively few babies."
So what is being done to
save sharks? In the U.S., the
Magnuson-Stevens Fishery
Conservation Act is the primary
law that oversees the conserva-
tion of U.S. fisheries and has
established various management
regulations for 39 species of
sharks in the Atlantic Ocean,
Caribbean Sea and Gulf of
Mexico. It outlaws finning if the
carcass is discarded but not if the
.rest of carcass is kept, clearly an
unfortunate loophole.
The U.S. also helped develop
a United Nations Food and
Agriculture Organization treaty
(the International Plan of Action
for the Conservation and Man-
agement of Sharks) whereby 87
countries agreed to develop their
own plans for the conservation
of sharks. However, only two
countries-the U.S. and Austra-
lia-have lived up to the agree-
ment. The U.S. plan is adminis-
tered by the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administra-
tion, which has been working
with regional fisheries authori-
ties to make sure fishermen are
sticking to cautiously low quotas
regarding the number of sharks
they are allowed to catch.

About Soup

FAMILY FEATURES
Did you know that soup is considered to be one of the first fast foods? It's true! The history of soup is closely inter-
twined with the history of cooking, and among the earliest was a version that combined peas, lentils and beans for
a quick and easy meal. Since then, soup has evolved into a mealtime favorite that is everything from quick and
easy to sophisticated and elegant. During the cold nights of winter, a bowl of hot, nourishing soup will warm you up
and satisfy those comfort-seeking taste buds.
Wondering where to get started to make a soup from scratch? More than 83 percent of homemade soups feature broth as a
base to create a deliciously satisfying dish. The makers ofSwanson Broth know that soup is a wonderful treat 12 months of the
year, which is why they are offering some of their favorite homemade soup recipes.
Sensational Chicken Noodle Soup is a-classic and quick soup recipe that only takes 25 minutes from stovetop to table, but
tastes like it took all day. It starts with the secret ingredient, Swanson Chicken Broth, and combines fresh celery, carrots and
black pepper with, of course, chicken and noodles to create a timeless soup full of flavor.
If it's something a bit more substantial you're in the mood for, prepare Heart, BeefBarley Soup. A meal in itself, this soup
begins with Swanson Beef Broth and is seasoned with thyme, garlic and mushrooms. With the addition of sirloin steak, this
soup delivers a hearty and tasty meal in every spoonful.
For a soup chock-full of fresh vegetable flavors, start with Swanson Vegetable Broth and incorporate leeks, carrots, celery,
turnips and white kidney beans to create Winter Vegetable Bean Soup With Pesto. A simple, homemade pesto offers an
unexpected touch to this hot and hearty dish.
While the definition of "fast food" has changed over the centuries, soup is certainly a quick and versatile one-pot wonder.
So, when you're craving comfort, treat yourself to a bowl of this wholesome fast food. For more recipes, visit
