Lanark

Water

District to

dissolve

March 4
BY CHRONICLE WRITERS
The Lanark Village Water &
Sewer District Board voted
Monday night to dissolve itself
when the merger with Carrabelle
is complete.
The vote came after District
Commissioner Ray Courage
asked Carrabelle City Manager
John McInnis, "When will the
Lanark Board go out of exis-
tence?"
The answer was that the
Lanark Board would no longer
exist upon signing the closing
documents on March 4. To make
it official, Courage made the
motion that "at the signing on
March 4th, 2008 the Lanark.
Board will no longer exist." The
motion passed.
Unlike past meetings, this
final meeting was harmonious. It
was called to order at 6:30 p.m.
by new Chairman Pauline
Sullivan at Chillas Hall.
Commissioners Barbara Rohrs
and Ray Courage were in atten-
dance along with Mclnnis and
Courtney Dempsey from
Carrabelle, 20 Lanark residents
and two sheriff's deputies.
McInnis reported on the
status of the merger proceedings.
At this point all administrative
duties are being preformed by
the Carrabelle staff. Carrabelle is
in the process of paying all of the
outstanding debts incurred by
Lanark. Any in question are
being reviewed by attorney Dan
Cox to make sure the debt was
for Lanark District business. All
bills will be taken care of by the

Congress

schedules

water

hearing
Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-North Florida) has succeeded
in his efforts to push for
Congress to examine the
Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-
Flint (ACF) water sharing issue.
After many conversations
with his colleagues in the House
of Representative and persistent
calls for a congressional hearing,
Congressman Boyd announced
that the Subcommittee on Water
Resources and Environment of
the House Transportation and
Infrastructure Committee will
hold a hearing on March 11 to
discuss the drought in the south-
east and its effects on the ACF
system.
"I am hopeful that a con-
gressional hearing will allow us
to thoroughly examine this com-
plex issue, so that our findings
can complement and advance
the negotiations between the
three states," said Congressman
Boyd. "For almost 20 years, the
ACF water sharing disagree-
ments have presented numerous
challenges on the local, state,
and federal levels. In order for
us to successfully and responsi-
bly address this issue, we must
look at the big picture and tackle
both our short term and long
term problems."
Congressman Boyd has been
asked to select an ACF expert to
testify at the congressional hear-
ing. To make sure that the con-
cerns of Florida's stakeholders
are considered, Congressman
Boyd will reach out to the
Riparian County Stakeholder
Coalition to designate a repre-
sentative to testify before
Congress.
The Riparian County Stake-
holder Coalition was formed late
last year so that Florida's stake-
holders could be a strong and
unified voice on the ACF issue.
The coalition is comprised of
representatives from Franklin,
Gulf, Jackson, Gadsden, Liberty,
and Calhoun Counties and
includes Florida's chief stake-
holders along the Apalachicola
River. The coalition meets regu-
larly and hopes to gain recogni-
tion from the state of Florida so
that its members-as. Florida's
stakeholders-can offer their
input in the state's negotiations
with Georgia and Alabama.
"There is no one better to
describe the plight of the com-
munities that depend on the

Federal project underway to armor Carrabelle Beach


BY LAUREL NEWMAN
Chronicle Correspondent
Traffic delays along the west
end of Carrabelle Beach are the
result of a federally funded
Department of Transportation
project to mitigate damage done
by Hurricane Dennis two years
ago when the surf caused ero-
sion damage along the beach-
front.
The work is being done by
contractors Phoenix Construc-
tion.
The current phase is the
installation of sheet piling at the
edge of the DOT right-of-way,
according to project inspector


Joe Clark. This will furnish a
temporary barrier.
"Next," he said, "we will
sink five-foot pre-cast concrete
walls behind the sheet piling
wall, with a concrete cap, and fill
in behind that with bank and
shore material. All the construc-
tion activity will remain within
the DOT right of way, and will
not affect the actual beach."
Beach lovers will be glad to
hear that the activity will not
obscure or destroy the current
look of, or access to, the water-
front. The picturesque and
unusual beachscape of pine root

A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


The Franklin Chronicle


Local men cited as heroes


I think I finally understand
the difference between a liberal
and a conservative politician.
Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)
defined conservatism thus:
"Conservative, (n) A statesman
who is enamored of existing
evils, as distinguished from a lib-
eral, who wishes to replace them
with others." Mort Sahl carried
the distinction further when he
stated, "Liberals feel unworthy
of their possessions. Conserva-
tives feel they deserve everything
they have stolen."
Heroes often see themselves
as ordinary people who just
responded in an ordinary way to
extraordinary events. On Satur-
day, the 23rd, four local men
were cited by the U.S. Coast
Guard for their outstanding team
work in the face of a life-threat-
ening emergency near Sike's
Cut: Mike Doyle, Boyd Ellison,
Carleton Ethridge, and Frank
Stephens were given the Coast.
Guard "Award of Operational
Merit". Doyle, Ellison, and
Ethridge are St. George Island
residents and Stephens, former
principal of Apalachicola High
School, is now Assistant
Principal at Haney Technical
School in Panama City.
On April 25, 2007, the four
Coast Guard Auxiliary members
were on routine safety patrol
when they heard the report of a
"Mayday" distress signal five
miles away from them. When
they arrived at the scene, they
found The Sea Ray, a 24-foot
vessel, capsized and sinking in
rough seas with three of its pas-
sengers atop the foundering boat
and two others in the water des-
perately trying to hold on to the
sinking vessel. High winds and
rough waters made it very diffi-
cult for the rescuers to bring the
cold, exhausted people onto
their boat but with what the
Coast Guard called "an excep-
tionally -high level of skill
maneuvering (the Coast Guard
vessel)," they were able to get the
passengers aboard. The five pas-
sengers were too weak, cold and
exhausted to assist in their own
rescue but the crew was finally


Frwao the Is4la

able to pull each one from the
wreck and pull them aboard.
Two of the passengers were suf-
fering from hypothermia and the
other three had to be treated for
shock but all survived to fish
another day thanks to the four
local men who find it hard to
think of themselves as heroes.
When asked about the rescue,
Mike Doyle said, "This was one
of those times when we were on
the water at the right time and
could help when help was need-
ed." There are five fishermen's
families who must be pretty
thankful that you were "on the
water at the right time" and that
you knew what to do and didn't
hesitate to do it.
Last week I reported that the
St. George Lighthouse Associa-
tion was selling steps to pay for
the spiral stairway inside the
lighthouse. Your response was
fantastic! As of 2 p.m. Monday,
all the steps had been sold, gen-
erating over $20,000 for the con-
struction of the stairs. Good job!
I got an e-mail from the
Apalachicola Riverkeeper that
here will be a "Clean the Hell
Out of Tate's Hell" event on
Saturday, March 8, from 8a.m.
to noon. If you are interested in
helping, call Marti Miller at 850-
487-3766 or e-mail millerm2@
doacs.state.fl.us. Clean-up events
are valuable to all of us. They
keep the area nice looking for
our visitors but even more
important, they help to preserve
the environment and protect
wildlife.
Speaking of clean-up, isn't it
about time we started to do
something about the unaccept-


State warns of tax rebate scam


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson is
warning consumers about scam
artists who are seeking personal
information and in some
instances money while claiming
to help consumers in obtaining a
tax rebate from the federal gov-
ernment.
"If you receive a phone call
or e-mail with a promise of assis-
tance in getting a check, hang up
on the caller or delete the e-
mail," Bronson said.
The scam began sweeping
the country in recent days, and
some Florida residents have
acknowledged in phone calls to
the department's Consumer


Services Division this week that
they have been contacted by the
scam artists.
In one variation of the rip-
off, a company calling itself the
Federal Commission Refund
Department is promising con-
'sumers help in obtaining a tax
rebate check for a $29 fee that it
offers to withdraw from the con-
sumer's bank account. In a sec-
ond variation, scammers por-
traying themselves as IRS agents
are calling and asking for Social
Security numbers and other per-
sonal information to verify the
person's eligibility for a-refund.
That information can make con-
sumers extremely vulnerable to
identity theft.


"What these scam artists are
trying to do is to obtain personal
information, including bank
account and Social Security
numbers, so they can clean out
your checking or savings account
and open a line of credit in your
name," Bronson said. "Don't fall
for it."
Congress is. considering a
tax rebate plan in an effort to
stimulate the economy. The
IRS, which is the agency that
would issue checks if legislation
is passed for approving a rebate,
does not ask for personal infor-
mation on the phone or in an e-
mail.

able amount of trash on our
beautiful Island bridge. Every
time the bridge is cleaned up, the
next day or day after that, it is
full of trash again. I noticed that
the same broken laundry basket
has been there for the last week
or more. The other trash is gone
so I guess it must have blown to
the ends of the bridge or into the
water where it poses a life-threat-
ening hazard to birds, fish and
wildlife. The type of trash points
to its source. It isn't just pop
cans, beer bottles and fast-food
containers. There are many large
boxes, plastic gallon bottles and
trash bags that are not the stuff
that is carelessly thrown from car
windows: This junk flies out: of
the trash trucks and trailers that
service the Island. I followed a
truck from the middle of the
bridge to Apalachicola several
weeks ago with chunks of fiber-
board flying from it all the way,
some pieces quite large and dan-
gerous to following cars. It's time
to get mad! I'm not sure just
what the best way to go about
complaining is but it was sug-
gested that if enough people
write and phone the trash com-
panies it might help. Another
suggestion was made that, since
littering is illegal, the Sheriff's
Office might be able to bring
pressure to bear. I would wel-
come your ideas.
Don't forget, The Rivertown
Girls will perform this Saturday,
February 23, at the St. George
Island United Methodist
Church. The performance is at
6:30 p.m. Come, bring an appe-
tizer to share and a friend or two.
Paraphrasing Mary Kay
Ash, (yes, that Mary Kay) "If
you think you can or if you think
you can't, you're right."
Until next week, then, God
Bless, and keep those e-mails
and letters coming. If you have
information from Eastpoint or
St. George Island that you think
we should be aware of or if you
wish to comment on the content
of the column, contact me by
phone at (850) 927-2899 or e-

Lanark Ladies hold fund-raiser
The Red Hat Ladies of Lanark gathered for a fund-raising
luncheon to benefit Habitat for Humanity hosted by Pam
Ashley on February 13. The group of 28 women clad in their
purple clothing and red hats enjoyed a lunch of barbecue
with all the fixings at Breakaway Lodge the historic home of
Pam and Don Ashley on the Ochlocknee River. Breakaway
Lodge with its beautiful view of the river is the spot where
the military commanding officers of Camp Gordon Johnston
gathered at the end of the day to relax and possibly to discuss
the training of their troops for the planned invasion of
Normandy during WWII. The Ashleys have carefully pre-
served the historical buildings and have surrounded them
with beautiful Camellia gardens full of birds and a resident
white squirrel. In the photo above are, Gene Sewell (right)

shorter the article, the more readers will
read. We will limit our editing of the
article to just basic style issues, and we'll

There is no inflation


I don't want to upset all you retired folks out
there but I have found out that the government has
been lying to us about inflation.
I know ... I know, you are all shocked. You
can't believe I could actually come right out and
say the U.S. Government is lying. I am sure some
of you think I should
be charged with trea-
son arid sent to a for-
eign country to be tor-
tured. I know to actu-
ally believe our gov-
ernment would lie is
really hard to swal-
low. There must be
some other explana-
tion? Maybe it only T~
appears that they are i 4
lying? Maybe I have
misinterpreted the By Richard E. Noble
facts? Well, I'll let you
be the judge.
Inflation is interpreted by the government as
CPI. The CPI is the Consumer Price Index. This
index was once calculated by comparing the prices
of a certain group of goods and services from time
to time and then estimating the increase or
decrease in their costs. This task was performed by
the BLS, the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As the cost
of everything in this so called basket of goods and
services kept rising, the government decided that
something had to be done. Something had to be
done because this method was costing the govern-
ment too much money in cost of living adjustments
to retirees, retired veteran's pensions, Medicare
payments, government employees, bond holders
and whatever. So they appointed somebody named
Boskin and instructed him to form a commission
and study this problem.
If you are retired, receiving a pension, have
your life's savings invested in government bonds,
working under a government contract, or anything
that is adjusted for inflation by somebody and you
now find that you can only afford to buy half a
tank of LP gas, or you can no longer afford to drive
your car more than one block in any direction, or
you are wondering if cat food can be consumed by
humans, you can thank Michael Boskin and his
Commission. He and his commission rearranged
the methods for estimating the Consumer Price
Index.
Mr. Boskin had some "overlooked" economic
concepts that he brought into the CPI evaluation
like; substitution, hedonics-quality estimations,
geometric weighing, seasonal adjustments, along
with the elimination of certain incalculable volatile
variables like energy, food and local, state and fed-
eral taxes. So, for example, when the CPI was cal-
culated without consideration for food, energy and
taxes it was often found that there had been no
inflation at all. Wow! Isn't that great?
So you ask; why is it that I don't have enough


money to live. on any more? Well, obviously you
are still heating and cooling your home, eating food
and paying your taxes. If you will just stop doing
those things you will find that you have just as
much money as you always had.
But just in case that wasn't enough to bail out
the government, Mr. Boskin thought up a few other
safety measures to guarantee that inflation didn't
go up.
One of his measures he called "substitution."
In other words if the price of beefsteak in our typi-
cal basket of goods went up from the last time that
Mr. Boskin went shopping, he substituted ham-
burger; and if hamburger was too high he substitut-
ed chicken; and if all the meat was too high; he
substituted vegetables; and if vegetables were too
high one can imagine that Mr. Boskin would have
us consumers check out the ingredients on a bag of
Friskies. Then, of course, we don't have to buy the
name brand Friskies, we could buy Gritskies and
we don't have to buy Ritz Crackers we can buy
Fritz or Blitz Crackers.
Next on Mr. Boskin's list of improvements was
"hedonics" or quality compensations. Let's say
that Mr. Boskin bought a TV for $329 on his previ-
ous expedition and then on his following survey
the same model TV cost the exact same price. But
the new TV had a better picture, was estimated to
last two years longer, and due to improvements in
technology it had a much better sound. Mr. Boskin
figured that even though RCA chose not to charge
us for these improvements the government had no
obligation to be so generous. Mr. Boskin estimated,
for example, that these improvements were worth
in terms of quality enhancement, $135. He there-
fore calculated that a new TV didn't really cost the
consumer $329 but only $194. As you can plainly
see our CPI actually went down instead of remain-
ing exactly the same.
But hedonics only seems to travel in one direc-
tion. If you personally don't benefit from these new
technological wonders because you have grown old
and your vision and hearing have diminished or
even if you didn't need and don't want the new and
improved model, you still get billed by Boskin
nonetheless.
I could explain to you Mr. Boskin's "geometric
weighing" as opposed to the old antiquated arith-
metic method and his seasonal adjustments but I
don't really think it is necessary. I think that most
of you out there will agree with me when I say that
Mr. Boskin and the U.S. government who hired
him are not simply spinning the truth but are real-
ly telling lies.

Economic stimulus will help businesses


Besides consumer tax
rebates, the Economic Stimulus
Plan approved by the Senate and
just signed into law includes pro-
visions that benefit small and
independent businesses.
Under the plan, businesses
will be able to expense as much
as $250,000 in equipment or
property purchased this year, up
from $125,000.
Also included is a provision
known as "bonus depreciation,"
which gives companies a 50 per-
cent deduction on new equip-
ment that would normally be
depreciated over many years.
In total, the package cuts
taxes on business investments by
about $50 billion, giving compa-
nies an incentive to invest and
help jumpstart the economy.
To determine how these pro-
visions will affect your business,
please consult a tax professional.
And for restaurants
Also, I wanted to let you
know that I have just signed on
to legislation that would benefit
the restaurant industry, which
plays a critical role in Florida's
multi-billion dollar tourism
industry.
Traditionally, restaurants
have been treated like other com-
mercial property by the federal
tax code and subject to a 39 V2-
year depreciation schedule.
Recognizing that restaurants go
through constant upgrades to
accommodate the wear and tear


9rWe N41ti
U.S. Senator

of heavy customer traffic and
longer operating hours, Congress
authorized a temporary, 15-year
depreciation schedule for restau-
rants in 2004. I am cosponsor-
ing S. 2170 to make the change
in the depreciation schedule per-
manent for restaurant improve-
ments and new construction. A
companion bill, H.R. 3622, is
pending in the House.
I will continue to seek
opportunities to help businesses
cope with today's economic
uncertainty.
Kids and cars
On another topic, the Senate
just passed important, bipartisan
legislation I have been working
on with Senators Clinton and
Sununu that will save children
from dying in freak back-over car
accidents.
The Cameron Gulbransen
Kids and Cars Safety Act of
2007 requires that new cars pro-
vide drivers with a means of


detecting a child behind a car,
ensure power windows reverse
direction to prevent a child from
being trapped, and provide for a
trigger brake to prevent roll-
aways. Because the legislation
was already passed by the
House, it now goes straight to
the president, who is expected to
sign it into law.
The legislation was named
after a two-year-old New York
boy, Cameron Gulbransen, who
was killed when his father acci-
dentally backed over him in the
driveway. I began pushing for
the car improvements partly
because of the tragic story of
Arden Rosenfeld, a south
Florida woman whose baby girl
Veronica was killed in 2005 in a
back-over accident while on a
walk with her mother in a Boca
Raton neighborhood.
The bill drew increasing sup-
port in the Senate this spring
after 16 children died in back-
over accidents in just one month.
We've had the technology to
prevent these deaths, it just need-
ed to be put to use. As
Veronica's father said, "...the
only thing you think is, maybe
something good can come out of
this." I am honored to have
played a role in passing this legis-
lation, which is a fitting memori-
al to Veronica and the estimated
200 children who died in similar
accidents last year.


New book about Apalach planned


Port St. Joe author and
genealogist Beverly Mount-
Douds has begun work on a sec-
ond pictorial, local history book
published by Arcadia Publishing
Company.
Based on Apalachicola his-
tory, these photographs will tell
the story of the Apalachicola
community from its birth to the
present.
Ms. Mount-Douds will be
needing your help in the form of
photos from families and busi-


nesses of Apalachicola. If you
have any photos and would like
to see your family in this book,
now is the time for you to start
digging out the photos. She will
visit Apalachicola on the 28th of
February to attend the
Apalachicola Bay Historical
Society meeting.
This book will be a volume
of Arcadia Publishing's "Images
of America" series, which fea-
tures archival photographs of
communities throughout the


country, including historical cap-
tions about the towns and their
residents.
These books feature indus-
tries that have vanished from the
landscape, such as saw mills and
turpentine operations, and those,
like the oyster industry, which
still thrive today.

tact Beverly Mount-Douds at

A scene from "A Nice Family Gathering."

Family Gathering plays to

an appreciative audience
A REVIEW
BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE VITAL INFO
Chronicle Correspondent In coming weeks at The


When I arrived at the Dixie
Theatre to review their latest
addition to community enter-
tainment, Don Schmidt, the
administrative assistant to the
Dixie Theatre, thanked me for
my good reviews of the recent
Dixie presentations. While not
wanting to disagree with Don, I
think his thanks are misplaced.
We owe him and Dixie Parting-
ton and all the other principals at
the Dixie a big round of appla-
use for an 11th year of excellent
program choices and well-pre-
sented shows. Also we mustn't
forget to remember Rex Parting-
ton, whose vision started this
whole thing back in 1997. Thank
you all for bringing to Apalachi-
cola shows that uplift our spirits
and present a positive image to
our visitors.
The play last night did not
disappoint. "A Nice Family
Gathering" was well presented
by an experienced and capable
cast including veterans of the
Dixie stage, Cleo Holladay,
whose performance in "Driving
Miss Daisy" in 1998 helped
launch the Dixie; Gary Lee
Smith, fresh from his perform-
ance in "Senator Sam;" David
Caldwell in his fourth appear-
ance at the Dixie; Judy Chesnutt,
remembered from "Steel Magno-
'lias" and "Vanities;" David
Poirier, last seen in "Bully;" and
Dixie Partington, whose credits
list ten past performances on the
stage named after her.
The lead male role was
played by a newcomer to the
Dixie, Zach Kleinsmith, who
graduated from Otterbein
College in Westerville, Ohio
with a Bachelor of Fine Arts
degree in Acting, after which he
performed in several New York
productions. Kleinsmith is a
highly talented young actor
whose presence on the Dixie
stage provided the audience with
a memorable performance. His
strong acting ability, relaxed
stage presence, and natural deliv-
ery combined with good projec-
tion to present a realistic but
funny character given to one-lin-
ers and comic surprise. In watch-


Dixie Theatre:
The Dixie Does Nashville
will be presented on March 7
& 8.
The 6th Annual Apalachicola
Music Fest plays March 14 &
15.

ing his portrayal of "Carl," I was
reminded somewhat of Jerry
Seinfeld. In an interview after
the show, Kleinsmith said he
"really had a great time with
everybody. I was welcomed with
open arms and just felt like I was
part of the troupe and had been
here before." About Apalachi-
cola, hie said. "It's really nice. It's
sure a lot different from New
York."
In describing her feelings
about the play, director Dorothy
Marie Robinson said the play
presents many themes. It has the
misunderstood artist child, the
relationships with the child who
is "different," and the story cau-
tions the audience to speak your
feelings to your family while you
are still alive to do so. Robinson
also spoke of the difficulties
interpreting some of the parts
that the actors overcame well.
The enthusiastic audience
certainly had no problems with
the actors' abilities to interpret
the problem parts. One couple,
marriage counselors, drove here
from Moultrie, Georgia to see
the play, a three-hour drive, and
planned to drive home after-
wards. They said it was "better
than going to the movies" and
called it, "a great night." They
also commented on the family
communication theme set forth
in the story. Rafael and Elvira,
from Ontario, Canada, said the
play, "Touched everybody's
heart" and was, "Really good,
professional, funny! The mes-
sage is that you have to tell peo-
ple you love them." The
Tallahassee couple at my table
said it was, "worth the hour and
three quarters drive."
You still have a chance to see
"A Nice Family Gathering" at
the Dixie Theatre on Friday and
Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at
3 p.m. You won't regret it.

A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


The Franklin Chronicle


Circuit Clerk explains the

county's property purchase


Q. Can you give us some
information about the county's
purchase of property formerly
known as "Lombardi's"?
A. Yes, the County Com-
missioners have agreed to pur-
chase the property located on
Highway 98 just outside the
Apalachicola city limits as rec-
ommended by their Seafood
Task Force to provide public
access to the Two Mile Channel.
Both commercial and recreation-
al fishermen will have access to
the western portion of Apalachi-
cola Bay and the Gulf of
Mexico. The land consists of
approximately 2.5 acres of
uplands, with 400 feet of
frontage on Highway 98 and two
structures and a dock. The pri-
mary function of the landing
park will be the. public access to
the Bay as a boat launch espe-
cially for the seafood workers but
to be utilized by recreational
fishermen with plans for a
canoe/kayak launch area in the
near future. The existing boat
launch will be upgraded to a
heavy duty, two-lane, 30 x 60
boat ramp, the launch area will
be designed to include a large
turning circle to back boats to the
ramp to facilitate the launch, and
the existing dock will be renovat-
ed. An unloading platform next
to the boat ramp will provide
oystermen, crabbers, and fisher-
men a place to unload their
catch.
There are three phases to the
project. Phase one involves gen-
eral site clearing and public safe-
ty issues being addressed as well
as the opening of the boat launch
area, parking, and picnic areas.
The buildings would remain


By Marcia Johnson,
Clerk of Circuit Court
closed to the public during this
phase. Phase two is renovation of
the main building and opening
of a meeting room, seafood her-
itage display, nature trail, and
canoe/kayak launch. A heavy-
duty boat ramp would be
installed in phase two. Phase
three calls for the relocation of
the oyster lab to the site, installa-
tion of public restrooms, and
continued expansion of the her-
itage display. Of course, these
plans are all contingent upon
funding.
I was in favor of the pur-
chase since I believe in and sup-
port our seafood workers.
Seafood is my family's heritage,
and I recognize there is a need
for seafood landing areas. As
your Clerk and Finance Officer, I
did present some items for the
County Commission to consider
prior to making a decision on the
purchase. I was concerned that
the asking price was higher than
two appraisal values the county
obtained, and a determination
had to be made as to what fund-
ing sources were available in the
county's budget. It's been sug-
gested that next year's budget
could experience a $2 million


Pioneer makes its

presentation to Weems


On January 10, Pioneer
Health Services made a presenta-
tion about partnering with
George E. Weems Memorial
Hospital to the Weems Memor-
ial Hospital Board.
Joseph McNulty, president
of Pioneer Health Services, said
he thought a partnership bet-
ween Pioneer and Weems would
be a good fit because Pioneer has
specialized in bringing health-
care advancements to rural com-
munities.
"We understand what life is
like outside the metropolitan
area because we live it everyday,"
he said.
Pioneer Health Services has
been successful in developing
rural hospitals with Critical
Access designations like Weems.
Headquartered in Magee, Mis-
sissippi, Pioneer currently owns
and operates two rural Critical
Access Hospitals. in Mississippi
and provides management serv-
ices to another CAH in that
state. Both hospitals they own
and operate have seen a signifi-
cant expansion of the medical
services they offer and of the
advanced technology they pro-
vide to patients. The additions
include CT scanners, teleradiolo-
gy, behavioral health programs,
sleep medicine, and additional
specialty medical services like
mammography, physical thera-
py, gastroenterology, and respira-


tory care.
While Pioneer wants to
recruit new primary care physi-
cians, mid-level providers, and
specialty medical staff for the
new clinic in Carrabelle and the
hospital in Apalachicola if it
were to lease and/or manage
Weems, according to McNulty, it
also wants to build a hospital
business that is a long-term
financial success.
"We're looking at what
Pioneer brings to the table," said
vice chairman of the board Curt
Blair. "They have had a lot of
experience working with Critical
Access Hospitals," he said. A
Critical Access Hospital is eligi-
ble for larger federal reimburse-
ment.
The proposal from Pioneer
Health Services is to lease and
operate Weems for the county
with oversight from the Weems
Memorial hospital board, said
Weems CEO
Chuck Colvert. Under any
partnership scenario, the board
also will be accountable to the
county commission for funds
raised from the newly passed
ordinance for health care, he
added. The Weems Memorial
Hospital Board also has had dis-
cussions about working together
with Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital and Sacred Heart
Health Systems.


reduction in ad valorem taxes. I
asked the Board to consider how
the purchase will impact future
budgets with financed payments,
additional Parks & Recreation
Department responsibilities, and
general liability issues. I believe
my considerations were neces-
sary to perform my fiscal respon-
sibility.
I informed the County
Commission that I wasn't in
favor of charging fees for the use
of the boat ramp and launch
area. We don't have fees for any
other county-owned boat ramp
or park, and I don't think it
would be fair to charge our
seafood workers who pay taxes
and deserve services.
The county agreed to pur-
chase the property for a price of
$1,550,000. The county will put
up $400,000 budgeted for land
acquisition and $100,000 budget-
ed in the Tourist Development
Council, and the balance will be
financed with the yearly pay-
ment also coming from the
Tourist Development Tax. The
county agreed that no fees would
be charged for the use of the
ramp. Closing costs for the sale
will be shared with the property
owner up to an amount of
$10,000.

Peter F. Crowell Presents

Weekly economic update for
the week of February 18, 2008

Quote of the week
"Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all
others." -Cicero
Consumer confidence: 16-year low
The Reuters/University of-Michigan index of consumer senti-
ment fell to 69.6 this month, the weakest reading since February
S1992. Economists surveyed by
Bloomberg News had forecast a drop of
2.4 points for the index; instead, it fell
8.8 points this month.
Recession, or no recession?
At a Senate hearing, Treasury
Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal
Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke both
expressed their belief that the U.S. will
Uww L^cu avoid a recession. Bernanke saw "a peri-
od of sluggish growth," then "a some-
Sponsored by what stronger pace of growth starting
Peter F Crowell, CFP later this year." Paulson cited a "funda-
mentally strong" economy. In rebuttal,
Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) suggested that Bernanke and Paulson
had simply "hit the snooze button" in the face of economic alarm.
Thursday, former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan said that the U.S. is
"clearly on the edge" of a recession.
A retail sales recovery
Who expected a boost in consumer spending? According to the
Commerce Department, retail sales rose 0.3% in January, after a
December downturn. Yet a UBS-International Council of Shopping
Centers survey of 43 retail chains noted year-over-year retail sales up
only 0.5% from January 2007, far underneath the 1.5% forecast.
Buffett's big offer
On Tuesday, Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway offered to
reinsure $800 billion in policies written on municipal bonds by
Ambac, MBIA and Financial Guaranty Insurance. But Ambac reject-
ed Buffett's offer on Friday.
6 lenders agree to a freeze
JPMorgan Chase & Co., Citigroup Inc. and four more banks
agreed to a 30-day moratorium on foreclosures last Tuesday. Treasury
Secretary Henry Paulson asked all mortgage lenders to join the
accord. Delinquent borrowers would be notified by letter that they
may qualify for a "pause," and have 10 days to consider new payment
options.
Markets rebound
The February flip-flop continued on Wall Street, as the markets
went north again. The big indexes posted weekly gains.

This Week's Answer

Cogno's Corner

Answer to question #145 is: False.
The mass of a star determines its lifetime. The more
massive a star, the shorter its lifespan because large stars
use their fuel faster than small stars. Therefore, small stars
usually exist longer than large stars.

A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


The Franklin Chronicle


11(-


Following are highlights of
the report from Extension
Director Bill Mahan, to the
Franklin County Commis-sion
on Tuesday, February 19.
New Red Snapper Rules
Approved: During the February
6-7 FWC meeting, the Commis-
sion adopted new red snapper
regulations similar to the new
federal guidelines. The new rules
will reduce the daily recreational
and commercial bag limit for red
snapper in state waters from four
fish to two fish per person and
establish a zero daily bag limit
for captains and crew of for-hire
vessels in all Gulf waters off
Florida's coast. The minimum
size for commercially harvested
red snapper and imported red
snapper will be reduced from 15
to 13-inches total length.
The new rules will also
require fishermen on all vessels
in the Gulf reef fish fishery to
possess and use certain gear,
including non-stainless steel cir-
cle hooks that must be possessed
aboard a vessel and used to har-
vest any Gulf reef fish when nat-
ural baits are used. At least one
dehooking device is required that
must be used to remove hooks
embedded in Gulf reef fish with
minimum damage. The dehook-
ing device must be constructed
to allow the hook to be secured
and the barb shielded without re-
engaging during the removal
process. It must be blunt and all
edges rounded, and it must be of
a size appropriate to secure the
range of hook sizes and styles
used in the Gulf reef fish fishery.
At least one venting tool is also
required and must be used to
deflate the swim bladders of
Gulf reef fish to help release the
fish with minimum damage.
This tool must be a sharpened,
hollow instrument, such as a
hypodermic syringe with the
plunger removed or a 16-gauge
needle fixed to a hollow wooden
dowel. A knife or an ice-pick
may not be used. The venting
tool must be inserted into the fish
at a 45-degree angle approxi-
mately 1 to 2 inches from the
base of the pectoral fin and be
inserted just deep enough to
release the gases so that the fish
may be released with minimum
damage.
However, a major difference
between the state and federal red
snapper rules will be the length
of the season. No change will be
made to the April 15 through
Oct. 31 Gulf recreational red
snapper harvest season in state
waters. However, new federal
rules establish a June 1 through
Sept. 30 recreational harvest sea-
son in Gulf federal waters adja-
cent to Florida waters. Because
the FWC didn't approve the
shorter season that NOAA
Fisheries proposed and Texas
rejected all of the federal guide-
lines, NOAA Fisheries will in all
likelihood be required to adopt
some more restrictive snapper
rules in federal waters.
FWC's new red snapper
rules take effect on April 1. The
rules requiring circle hooks,
dehooking devices and venting
tools for all reef fish species take
effect on June 1.
Internet Hunting Illegal:
Commissioners passed a rule
prohibiting Internet hunting that
makes it illegal to hunt via
remote-control methods when a


person is not physically present
at the location of the gun.
The next FWC meeting:
The next FWC meeting is set for
April 9-10 in Tallahassee.
Commercial Mullet Meet-
ings: The FWC has scheduled a
series of workshops to consider
ways to allow more fishing
opportunities for commercial
fishermen and possibly modify-
ing the July January weekend
closures for commercial mullet
fishermen. The meetings nearest
to us were February 19th, in
Panama City at Gulf Coast
Community. College and on
February 20th in Crawfordville
at the Tallahassee Community
College Branch Campus.
Grouper Forum 2008: The
FWC's Fish & Wildlife Research
Institute will be holding a
Grouper Forum on February
26th, from 6 10 p.m. in St. Pet-
ersburg. The goals of the meet-
ing include-explaining the role
of science in the fishery manage-
ment process; provide and
overview of federal management
actions related to grouper; dis-
cuss how to maximize the public
input in fishery management
decisions; and enhance commu-
nication between fishery man-
agement agencies and the public
on regulatory issues.

Johnson files for re-election as clerk I


SUBMITTED
BY MARCIA JOHNSON
I have filed my intent to
qualify as a candidate for the
position of Clerk of the Circuit
Court. I have been blessed to
hold this office for the past four
years, and to work in this office
for over 30 years. I truly hope
I've gained the trust and confi-
dence of the citizens to remain in
office. I have a wonderful staff.
They are knowledgeable, hard-
working, and loyal to me and
Franklin County. The Clerk
plays an essential role in our free
and democratic society by serv-
ing as an elected trustee and pre-
server of history and protector of
public funds. The Clerk helps
residents with local court and
government activities which


Marcia Johnson
include jury duty coordination,
traffic ticket payment options,
marriage license applications,
passport applications, property
deed documentation, child sup-


port, small claims, and divorce
filings. Your Clerk assists citi-
zens with many day-to-day
needs, and provides oversight of
and safeguards the tax dollars to
ensure that county funds are
spent according to law. I have
met these expectations.
I know I have shown respon-
sibility in making sure citizens
have convenient access to the
public records and that each
individual's privacy is protected.
Our official records are available
over the Internet for ease of
access, and my office uses the lat-
est technology to keep private
information out of the wrong
hands. I am in the process now
of updating my website at
www.franklinclerk.com in order
to provide even more access.


During my first term, I have
strived to make the Clerk's Office
better than ever, and my staff
and I do believe we operate one
of the best clerk's offices in the
state. We recognize that we work
for the public and are paid by
public tax dollars. Laws passed
by our Legislature continually
change the operations within our
county offices, and it takes
knowledge of the office to ensure
the proper enactment of those
changes.
When I ran for this position,
I emphasized that what mattered
most was that people received
the help they needed when they
came to the office. I'd like to' con-
tinue as Clerk, and if it's the will
of the citizens, I will always

Loughridge running for School Board, District I


SUBMITTED
BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE


Tom Loughridge, resident of
St. George Island and former
Apalachicola -High School
teacher, has declared his candi-
dacy for the position of Franklin
County School Board member
from District One.
Loughridge, who filed his
intent to run with the Supervisor
of Elections in December, will
compete in the primary election
on August 26. One other candi-
date, George W. Thompson of
Eastpoint, has declared his intent
to run in District one. Thompson
declared his intent to run in
January.
The candidate makes the fol-
lowing statement regarding his
announcement:
I have decided to run for the
Franklin County School Board


Tom Loughridge
for several reasons. First, I
believe that education is the best
answer to many of the problems
that beset our country and the
world today. The flame of
knowledge will light our paths to
a more open and understanding


society if we do a good job
imparting that knowledge to our
young people. I have taught the
children of Franklin County
both as a regular classroom
teacher and as a substitute in
Apalachicola and .Carrabelle.
The children in Franklin County
are as capable as any I have
taught anywhere and they want
to learn. It is our duty as teach-
ers, parents and community
leaders to see that they have
every opportunity to do just that
in a safe, comfortable environ-
ment with staff that is well pre-
pared to meet their needs. I also
believe that there is always need
on any governing board for per-
sons with abundant expertise in
the field. I have abundant experi-
ence in classroom teaching and
professional negotiations and I
have the legal background to


understand the complexities of
the Florida education code.
Finally, as a career educator, I
want to be part of this important
evolution in the Franklin County
education system that is the
beginning of a new future for our
children. I believe that each
group has a role to play in teach-
ing our young people; the admin-
istrators, the teachers, the non-
teaching staff, the parents, and
the school board. I want to work

Newsf4rom FWC

If you weren't lucky enough
to get drawn for a special-oppor-
tunity or spring turkey quota per-
mit, don't fret; there are numer-
ous wildlife management areas
(WMAs) that don't require
them.
FWC offers 35 public hunt-
ing areas statewide where
hunters need only to "walk on"
to hunt spring turkeys.
These hunts are made possi-
ble through the FWC's partner-
ships with the state's Division of
Forestry, Florida's water man-
agement districts, the U.S. Forest
Service, Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, the
National Park Service and
Department of Defense, who
participate in the state's public-
hunting system.
Hunters need only a hunting
license ($17 for residents, $46.50
for nonresident 10-day license),
management area permit
($26.50) and turkey permit ($5
for residents, $100 for nonresi-
dents) to spring turkey hunt on
the following areas. These
licenses and permits can be pur-
chased in Florida at county tax
collectors' offices and at most
retail outlets that sell hunting
and fishing supplies. They also
can be bought with a credit card
by calling 1-888-486-8356 or
going online at www.wildlifeli-
cense.com.
The spring turkey season
runs March 15 April 20 in the
Central and Northwest zones,
unless otherwise noted below.
Shooting hours during spring
turkey season on WMAs are
one-half hour before sunrise to 1
p.m.
.Here's where you can take
advantage of this near Franklin
County.
Apalachicola National For-
est: 581,837 acres in Franklin,
Leon, Liberty and Wakulla
counties. Camping allowed.
Apalachicola River Wildlife
and Environmental Area: 81,754
acres in Franklin and Gulf coun-
ties. Camping allowed. Man-
agement area permit not
required.
Enforcement actions
Gulf County: Lt. Arnie
McMillion and Officer Shon
Brower were working on the
Apalachicola River Wildlife and
Environmental Area near the
Chipola River Cutoff Island.
They were checking hunters
and conducting vessel stops on
the river for wildlife inspections.
One inspection revealed the
operator of a vessel being under
the influence of alcohol.
He was almost three times
the legal limit with a breath alco-
hol content of .224 and was
arrested for boating under the
influence.
His firearms were also
seized due to him being a con-
victed felon.
The investigation is continu-
ing and charges are pending for
possession of a firearm by a con-
victed felon.

Folklorist to present free maritime

lecture in Crawfordville Thursday


Dr. Tina Bucuvalas, the
State Folklorist of Florida, will
focus "on a wide variety of mar-
itime traditions of commercial
fishermen," when she headlines
the Big Bend Maritime Center's
free public lecture series Thurs-
day, Feb. 28, at Tallahassee
Community College's Wakulla
Center in Crawfordville.
Dr. Bucuvalas said that
Florida waters have created long-
standing, vigorous commercial
and recreational fishing tradi-
tions. "Both are important," she
said, "but the traditions of mar-
itime occupations are often over-
looked.
"I will focus on a wide vari-
ety of such traditions including
sponge fishing in Key West and
Tarpon Springs, fish net making
in St. Augustine, oyster harvest-
ing here in the Panhandle, as
well as oral traditions, fishing
gear, boat building, music, and
food ways from throughout
Florida," she noted.
"The Maritime Trail," a five-
part series, opened in January
when some 50 people enjoyed a


documentary film and Q & A
focusing on the impact of the net
ban on contemporary life of his-
toric fishing families in Cortez
and Cedar Key.
The second lecture, "Folklife
and Maritime Heritage," will
begin at 7:30 p.m. following a 7
o'clock pre-lecture social at the
college facility on Highway 319
about one mile south of the
Wakulla County Courthouse.
Dr. Bucuvalas, the series'
second guest speaker, is Director
and Folklorist of the Florida
Folklife Program, Bureau of
Historic Preservation. Often
published, Dr. Bucuvalas holds a
Masters Degree in Folklore and
Mythology from the University
of California and a Ph.D. in
Folklore from Indiana University.
'The public presentations are
made possible by a grant to the
Big Bend Maritime Center from
the Florida Humanities Council.
The guest speaker series will con-
tinue the fourth Thursday of
each month through May.
Remaining presentations will
cover "Shipwrecks of the Big

The series is also being
cosponsored by a Florida Coas-
tal Management Grant from the
National Oceanic and Atmos-
pheric Administration and by
Tallahassee Community College,
which is providing the facility.
"Based on attendance and
comments from the opening lec-
ture, we believe this entire mar-
itime heritage series will be very
popular," said Bill Lowrie, mar-
itime center director. A "mini-
museum" is currently located in
Panacea and longer-term plans
are to locate a permanent muse-
um along the Wakulla County
Gulf Coast.
The series is being coordi-
nated by Maritime Center board
member KC Smith. Mrs. Smith
is also the Florida Heritage
Education Coordinator for the
Museum of Florida History in
Tallahassee.

Can you agree on paint colors?


Dear Jane,
Help! My husband is color
blind but Won't Admit It! How
can we agree on a paint color?
Jane (really) F.
Dear Jane,
First off, love the name! As
for paint, here's what you can do
when you can't agree. He wants
blue. You want yellow. He wants
green. You want chartreuse. He
says, "What the heck is char-
treuse?" One of the unfortunate
facts of living together is that
there will be a number of times
when you simply can't agree.
Color is an important factor
to the decor of any room and it
ultimately defines the look of the
room. Nothing changes the look
of a room faster or more inex-
pensively than paint. Since the
human eye can differentiate
between hundreds of different
shades, choosing a color is never
easy. It's even more difficult
when two opinionated people
must agree on one color.
Take heart though, this isn't
as hard as it seems. You can
come to a decision you both can
live with, especially when you
take into account all of the
choices available to you.
Here are a.few tips to consid-
er when weighing your decision:
Whose Room is This?-Try
to honestly assess who uses the
room more. If it's an office or a
den one of you uses more than
the other, then that person
should have precedence. Keep in
mind though, that a 51%-49%
split on usage doesn't really work
here! Assuming each of you has
your own space, if you compro-
mise on the color of 'his' room,
you can.freely choose the color
of 'your' room.

color doesn't have to be a solid
color. You may hate burgundy,
but you may not mind it so much
when it's applied with a. faux
painting technique such as aged
leather or chamois. There are lit-
erally dozens of techniques for
faux painting using a single color
of paint, so even if the color may
not be your favorite, the way it's
applied may appeal to your sens-
es.
Don't Wall Yourself In-A
paint color doesn't have to be on
every wall of a given room. You
may want to consider using the
most striking color on just one
wall and then a contrasting color
on the other three. The 'striking'
wall is often referred to as an
"accent" wall. Use a palate of
complimentary, but softer colors
in the remainder of the room to
help balance what might be a
more eccentric or unusual color
scheme.
Crown Your Room-By
adding a bit of molding to a
room you can give any color a bit
more flair and panache. Crown
molding, baseboard molding,
chair rails and even wainscoting
are beautiful additions to any
.room of the house and are easier
to install than you think! Add
easy-to-install prefinished mold-

ing for a new look.
Color Combinations-
There are a few basic color rules
that many designers swear by. By
applying these rules to your paint
choices, you have a better chance
of enjoying the outcome. Before
we outline these "rules" remem-
ber that rules are meant to be
broken. So, if there are color
combinations that are appealing
to you but aren't outlined below;
it doesn't mean they're wrong!
However, if you need to show
your mate why orange and green
look best on a pumpkin and not
in the living room, then here we
go:
Blues & Greens-Just like
the ocean and the sky, blues and
greens go together in almost
every combination. Blue is a
complimentary color which
when used in the right combina-
tion, can have a dramatic effect
on any room.
Yellows-Yellows go best
with oranges and greens.
Violets-Violets are beauti-
ful, but too much violet can be,
well, too much. When combined
with greens, violet can create a
wonderfully warm room. When
combining violets with blues or
reds you'll want to make sure the
shade of violet is complimenta-
ry; such as a blue violet with blue
and a red tinged violet with reds.
Browns-Orange warms up
any shade of brown. Blues and
reds tend to be too overpowering
while dark greens can often add
a touch of class.
Reds-Pretty much all pinks
and reds go together and can
bring a sense of passion and
romance to a room. Just be
aware that painting a wall the
color red does require special
techniques.

Cape Canaveral once was called Cape Kennedy. The original name-Cape Canaveral-was changed in honor of President
John F. Kennedy in 1963. The name was changed back in 1973.


Oranges-Orange can come
in a wide variety of shades and
while soft oranges can warm up
a room, dark oranges should be
used sparingly.
Neutrals-Grays and neu-
trals provide a colorless back-
drop that creates an excellent
canvas for any other color.
Whatever colors you decide
on should be ones you both
enjoy. Take both of your likes
and dislikes into consideration
when making your choice. After
all, the end result of any decor
choice for shared rooms should
be to create a place where you
both like to spend time.

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 otherparts 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


TALK(
Questions & Answers
About Our Environment

Dear EarthTalk:
As I understand it, coal that
is used to fuel power plants and
other industrial activity is a key
culprit in pollution and climate
change. So what is "clean coal"
and is it really?
-Matthew Oliver, Minneapolis,
MN

The term "clean coal"
describes various processes that
remove pollutants from coal, our
cheapest, most abundant-and
dirtiest-energy source. By red-
ucing coal's environmental foot-
print through technological wiz-
ardry, the coal mining industry
and the Bush administration
hope to keep coal, which cur-
rently produces more than half
of all U.S. electricity, a big part
of our energy picture for many
years to come.
Clean coal proponents also
want to liquefy coal to turn it
into a form of automotive fuel
that, according to the industry-
sponsored Coal-to-Liquids Coal-
ition, costs less and burns clean-
er in some ways than the tradi-
tional diesel fuel it could replace.
Several members of Congress
from coal states are keen on hav-
ing the government subsidize the
production of so-called liquid
coal-which can be used any-
where diesel fuel currently
goes-as a "homegrown" alter-
native to foreign oil- Industry
analysts say there is enough coal
in America to last hundreds of
years, saving us untold expense
and trouble obtaining regular
petroleum from unfriendly for-
eign governments.
But major environmental
groups, from the Sierra Club to
the Natural Resources Defense
Council, say that "clean coal" is
anything but. The process
involves heating coal to 1,000
degrees Fahrenheit and mixing it
with water to produce a gas, then
converting the gas into diesel
fuel. Although the Coal-to-
Liquids :Coalition says that car-
bon dioxide emissions from the
entire production cycle of liquid
coal are "equal to, or slightly
below, those of conventional
petroleum-derived fuels," its
claims are based on a single fed-
eral study, now six years old, that
environmental leaders disagree
with profoundly.
Jim Presswood, federal ener-
gy advocate of the Natural
Resources Defense Council says,
"Liquid C02 emissions are
twice as much as emissions from
conventional petroleum-derived
fuels." He says that even if CO2
emissions were captured as part
of the process, at best liquid coal
would be 12 percent worse than
the gasoline equivalent. As some
environmentalists have put it,
liquid coal can turn any hybrid
Prius into a Hummer.
The Washington Post edito-
rialized, "To wean the U.S. off of
just one million barrels of the 21
million barrels of crude oil con-
sumed daily, an estimated 120
million tons of coal would need
to be mined each year. The
process requires vast amounts of
water, particularly a concern in
the parched West. And the price
of a plant is estimated at $4 bil-
lion." Also, in recent years, par-
ticularly in Appalachia, mining
companies have gone from sim-
ple excavation to blasting off the

Dear EarthTalk:
Everybody says stop using
plastic bags, but what about all
the plastic, cellophane, card-
board and other materials used
for packaging the food itself?
What can we do to reduce how
much of this unnecessary stuff
comes wrapped around our
food?
-Sunil Sreedharan, Mumbai,
India
Yes, food packaging is a big
problem in North America as
well as elsewhere around the
world, with landfills filling up
and recyclers facing a glut of
materials to process. It's hard to
say just how much of the 130
million tons of paper, plastic and
metals that get tossed or sorted
for recycling in major U.S. cities
is from food packaging, but the
percentage is no doubt sizable.
The main problem is in the psy-
chology of marketing: Manufac-
turers know that products in big
flashy-looking packages attract
more buyers.
A 1994 European Union


directive requires companies
operating in its 27 member
nations to take back and recycle
(or otherwise deal with, taking
the burden off of local commu-
nities) at least 60 percent of their
packaging waste, including that
used for food items. But no such
"producer pays" laws, which
provide incentive for manufac-
turers to cut back on waste to
begin with, exist in the United
States or Canada. As such, it
falls to consumers to patronize
stores and manufacturers that
minimize packaging.
One way to take a bite out of
packaging is to buy as much in
bulk as your family can keep up
with. It may take longer to get
through that gigantic box of
cereal you got at Costco, but
think of all the cardboard and
plastic your bulk purchase saved
over buying several small boxes.
Similarly, instead of sending the
kids off to school every day with
a new juice box in the lunch bag,
how about a safe metal or plastic
reusable, washable container
that you can refill each morning
from the gallon jug you keep in
the fridge?
Another way to forego pack-
aging is to reduce time spent in
large supermarkets, where waste-
ful product packaging rules.
Most natural foods stores have
large bulk-buying sections so you
can haul away in large paper or
plastic bags the equivalent of
many containers of beans, pas-
tas, rice or other staples.
Frequenting local farmers' mar-
kets-armed with your reusable
shopping tote, of course-is
another way to keep food pack-
aging out of your home. The
website Local Harvest offers a
free searchable database of farms
across the U.S. that run
Community Supported Agricul-


ture (CSA) programs and partic-
ipate in farmers' markets.
It's worth noting that we
tend to toss way too much food
packaging where a quick rinse
would make the same cans, jars
and jugs useful storage contain-
ers or quality recycling fodder.
Soup cans, for example, can eas-
ily be recycled into new steel and
are collected universally by
municipal recycling programs.
And while you're buying soup,
opt for the family size cans and
save leftovers instead of buying
single-serving containers. Even
when packaging material is recy-
clable, there's no reason to waste
it, as even recycling uses re-
sources and costs money.
Beyond shopping and sort-
ing more responsibly, individuals
also have the power of their voic-
es to pressure food makers to cut
back on packaging. You can also
try to persuade your elected offi-
cials to look into the feasibility of
enacting "producer pays" laws in
your community, city or state.
And you can talk to co-workers,
friends, relatives and others
about the importance of buying
in bulk and reducing.waste.

end of this week. Three people
from the Lanark workforce were
let go and Carrabelle should
have a good handle on the
Lanark field work within two to
three months.
With the merger, the cus-
tomer base has doubled, which
will benefit both Lanark and
Carrabelle. Carrabelle has paid
off both the Lanark debt and the
Carrabelle debt and refinanced
both into one bridge loan. After
three years and the completion
of the treatment plant upgrade,
the debt will be rolled over into a
State Revolving Fund loan for 20
years at 2.5 percent interest.
Members of the audience
asked what will happen to the
Ready To Serve litigation.
McInnis told them that all liens
will be removed and Carrabelle
will not continue with the same
fees as those imposed by Lanark.
The fees that have been paid to
Lanark in the past cannot be
refunded. Those fees were in
place as a source of funds for the
financially needy Lanark District
and were expended at that time.
Carrabelle cannot undo what the
past Lanark Board of Commis-
sioners have done.
McInnis was very positive
and requested that all the past
rancor be left behind, that
Carrabelle and Lanark can be
partners and friends from now
on, and that Lanark and
Carrabelle should go forward
with a merged district that will
benefit everyone.

The project is about 20 per-
cent complete at this point,
inspector Lewis said, so drivers
can probably expect a couple of
more weeks of one-lane traffic to
slow down the flow through the
area.


McInnis discussed rates and
told the Lanark Board that they
needed to approve the proposed
rate change as advertised. This is
to be an interim measure so
Carrabelle can do business until
a Carrabelle hearing on rates
takes place. After the Carrabelle
hearing, then the Lanark rates
will be the same as those
Carrabelle customers living out-
side the Carrabelle city limits.
The motion was made and
passed.
As Sullivan brought the
meeting to a close, she suggested
that a social event be scheduled
in April as a time for Lanark and
Carrabelle to get together to
meet their neighbors.
Earlier, at an emergency
meeting of the Lanark Board on
Wednesday, Feb. 13, commis-

to act administratively of behalf
of the Board; and immediately
to put a manager (s) in place at

Apalachicola Farmers


Market offers fresh fare


BY PAUL PUCKETT
Chronicle Correspondent
Don't you just love small
town Farmer's Markets?
Jack Simmons of Crescent
Moon Farms in Sopchoppy goes
out of his way to see that
Apalach has a bit of organic veg-
gies each week.
On Friday afternoons from 3
to 6, he sets up his table at the
Natural Medicine Store at 56
Market Street, in downtown
Apalachicola.
If you are punctual and get


there right at 3 p.m., you may
find other interested shoppers
waiting around with you; Jack
might be on farmer's time, but he
will be there.
Recently, he offered a bite of
some small fresh carrots that he
had thinned from his organic
garden. He brought an assort-
ment of the usual green veggies,
including some very pungent
and fragrant green garlic. He
says you can use most of this
garlic including the root tendrils,
and part of the green stalk


leaves. There was a very limited
supply of fresh spinach, which
was grabbed almost immediate-
ly.
A couple of other vendors
were also present. One offered
seafood fare, and the other had
some freshly shelled pecans, as
well as a small assortment of
green vegetables.
With the season warming
and moving rapidly toward
spring, activity at the
Apalachicola Farmers Market
should be on the increase.

At virtually every seaport
mankind has ever built, you're
sure to see a pelican at some time
or another. The birds roost on
every continent except Antarc-
tica. Their scythe-like beaks and
snaking necks have adorned
human art dating back thou-
sands of years.
So, what's the harm in a fish-
erman tossing a bit of fish to the
nearby pelican kind enough to
keep him company? What's a
scrap of flounder between
friends?
"You may think you're being
nice, but you could be setting
them up for a really painful
death," said Bryan Fluech, a
Collier County Sea Grant exten-
sion agent with the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences.
Hundreds of pelicans along
Florida's coastline meet a grisly
end. because of human activity.
As part of a statewide IFAS edu-
cational program, including a
new video titled "Pelican's Point
of View," Fluech explains the

do's and don't of interacting
with pelicans.
The video was produced in
conjunction with the nonprofit
organization Fish Florida.
"Maybe the scariest run-in
you can have with a pelican is if
it grabs your lure," Fluech said.
"On one end of the line, there'll
be a pelican that's confused
because this weird fish came
with a hook that's now stuck in
its beak. On the other end of the
line there'll be a fisherman who's
probably even more panicked."

Fluech said if an angler does
catch a pelican, he should never
cut the line.
"Your first instinct might be
to cut the line if you get a pelican
hooked," he said. "But leaving
that hook in there could be really
harmful to the bird."
The line can tangle around
the bird or get caught up in man-
groves where the bird roosts.
If possible, the fisherman
should try to gently wrangle the
bird into his grasp. He should
then grab the pelican loosely by
the beak before attempting to
hold the bird like a football, with
its wings pressed against its body.
A towel over the bird's head
will calm it and make it easier to
handle. The fisherman should
try to remove the hook by push-
ing it through the skin until the
barb is visible. Snip the barb with
wire cutters and then back the
hook out before releasing it.
Birds that have swallowed a
hook or are seriously hurt should
be taken to a rehab facility.
The greater evil of feeding
pelicans is that they lose their
fear of humans. A pelican with a
natural fear probably won't steal
lures or engage in other danger-
ous behaviors, he said.
But "people-friendly" peli-
cans will often approach humans
in an aggressive way that often
ends with the bird being hurt. Or
they crowd into small areas
where their droppings can pose a
health risk.
Besides helping the birds
lose their fear, feeding the peli-
cans can hurt them. Scraps from
fish large enough for fishermen
to legally keep are almost always
too big for pelicans to eat.
If a fisherman tosses a peli-
can scraps after cleaning a legal
fish-or .even just tosses' them
into the water where they can be
easily scooped up-the big bones
can tear the pelican's pouch as it
tries to swallow. Instead, fisher-
men should see if their dock or
fishing site has disposal tubes,
vertical PVC pipes that extend
below the water's surface too
deep for pelicans to reach. If
none exist, scraps should go into
a trash can.

CPR for Everyone


FAMILY FEATURES
Approximately 310,000 Americans die every year due to coronary heart disease, most often
attributed to a sudden cardiac arrest suffered outside the hospital setting or in the emergency
department. Nearly 80 percent of these arrests occur at home, so after you call 911, you can
provide life-saving care to a family member or friend
while waiting for help. This critical, life-saving skill -
cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is one that the
American Heart Association
wants many more Americans Specia
to be ready to perfonn when
necessary. (jrrndparenii

Help Yourself
Help Loved Ones
Recognizing that far too many Americans are not prepared to do CPR when
it's needed, the American Heart Association created a simple, accessible
way for people to learn CPR at home in less than 25 minutes:
* The Family & Friends CPR Anytime kit includes everything needed for
self-directed CPR training: a manikin, DVD and resource booklet.
* The CPR home training can be used in the convenience of the living room
or family room. -
* A single kit allows the whole family parents, grandparents, siblings
and other relatives or friends to learn life-saving CPR.
"There are many excuses for not taking a life-saving CPR course. People
don't have enough time, they're afraid of embarrassing themselves in the
classroom, or they don't think they'll ever have to provide CPR," said Robert
E. O'Connor, MD. chairman, Emergency Cardiovascular Care committee for
the American Heart Association. "Family & Friends CPR Anytime removes
traditional training obstacles by providing a brief and convenient way to
learn CPR. With CPR Anytime, millions more people trained can result in
thousands more lives saved."
Being prepared to act quickly when a family member adult, child or
infant suffers from sudden cardiac arrest can make the difference between
life and death.


Infant CPR Anytime:
Precious Life-Saving at Home
New parents, expectant parents, grandparents and siblings now have a simple,
convenient way to learn to perform infant CPR and to relieve choking in-less
than 25 minutes the Infant CPR Anytime Personal Learning Program.
* The American Heart Association developed guidelines that were used as
the basis of the infant kit.
* This new training program can be used to lear skills that could help save
the life of an infant (newborn to 12 months).
* The kit includes a one-of-a-kind infant CPR manikin, a training DVD and
two quick-reference skills reminders.
* The Mini Baby manikin is an inflatable version of a traditional infant
CPR manikin. An instructional DVD walks users through each step of the
training, from inflating the manikin, doing chest compressions and rescue
breathing, to how to relieve choking in an infant.
Because the training materials are contained in an in-home kit, Infant CPR
Anytime allows all family members to lear and brush up on skills periodically.
"Although it's a skill no one wants to use, the more family members that
know infant CPR the better." said Monica Kleinman, MD. Children's Hospital
Boston. "This enables people to learn infant CPR who otherwise would not
have that opportunity."


CPR:
All in the Family
Making CPR training a whole family affair
just makes good sense. With so many grand-
parents actively involved in the care of their
infant grandchildren, it's important for them
to be current on infant CPR training. Main-
taining adult CPR skills are just as critical -
to help each other or other family members or
friends who experience sudden cardiac arrest.
"Infant CPR Anytime is an important and
convenient way for all caretakers like grand-
parents to gain the peace of mind of knowing
they're prepared to help the infants who are
part of their lives," said Kleinman.
CPR training should be at the top of every
family's "must do" list. Performing effective
CPR immediately after someone suffers
cardiac arrest or choking saves lives.
Infant CPR Anytime and the Family &
Friends CPR Anytime kits can be purchased
by visiting wwvw.shopcpranytime.org or
calling 1-877-AHA-4CPR.
