Clean water


BY .AUREl. NEWMAN
Chnwicle (,,irr1',inlrPi
It looks as if local beach-
goers can look Ilorward to a clean
report on the purity of Carra-
belle Beach water reports iOr the
oI'mning season.
Paul Olctcrtvc the owner otI
the C'.rmtIhell Palms RV park,
has teamed up with Franklin
0C'ouI1y, the City of Carrabelle,
and a group of citizen volunteers
to ensure a clean new sewer
treatment hookup, as well as
remodeled new restroom facili-


ties for the county's beach lh.a ,i
ties
"It was all Jim Brown's
idea," t()~O bve said. "It was
back when he was the mayor of
Carrabelle. Ile told me he had
heard that the state was going to
gii\ the beach park to the coun-
ty, and he started the idea ol get-
ting the city's water treatment to
the sewer s0'.r3m out here, and
asked me if I would help remod.
el the public bathrooms and get
them hooked up when the sewer
%vs.cnm was ready, but that we


on tap
would have to wait until the lity
sewer got out here, so 1 said I
would help."
For minnv consecutive
weeks, Health Department read-
iiin had warned of bad water
quality at the beach. "Then a few
weeks ago." he said, we took the
public bathrooms ofline, and
installed porta-potties. And pro-
posed irnmos ing the old drain
field."
'm- rc hn, O(stcTbv said,
the Health Department re.rdinng
have impri\rd, and the beach


for beach


has been opened for swimming,
,although the controversy rem-
ains regarding the source of the
water contamination.
Osterbye said that a Franklin
County health official is con-
vinced that the source is animal
contamination, but that the
county departments do not have
the available funds to run the
expensive I)NA tests required to
distinguish animal matter in the
tests.
"I think it is from animals,"
OsCtrbve said. "It makes sense.


This beach is used most heavily
on weekends, and the test sam-
ples are taken on Mondays. Here
you have crowds of people on
the beach eating, feeding their
dogs and seagulls, and all those
animals are running and flying
around, and nobody cleans up
after them. I have spoken to
Nicki Millender, the Supervisor
of Parks and Recreation, about
getting some extra trash contain-
ers, and about an effort to
enforce the county's regulations

What's happening in Eastpoint

and on St. George Island


I don't know it' Dwight
Eisenhower (18)0-y100) knew
Eliot Spitzer personally but he
certainly understood the type.
President Eisenhower wrote,
"Thelre seems to be no final
answer to the question, 'low
stupid can you get?'"
Eisenhower would have had
at least a partial answer to his
question if he had watched, as I
did, several young visitors to tihe
Island trying to get themselves
extricated from thile results of
their intellectually challenged
behavior Saturday evening. They
tried to drive their pickup on the
dunes between Gulf Beach and
Pine and guess what? Yup ...
right up to the axle! Then they
tried to pull it out with another
pickup.... President Eisenhower,
we have found the answer to
your question! You know, some-
how. 1 don't think having three
guys jump up and down on the
tailgate while spinning the tires
helped a whole lot. Oh well,
spring break will soon be over
and we will have to find some-
thing else to beef about.
Other than spring break and
Faster week events the Island
and Eastpoint have been kind of
quiet this week Of course, the
Eastpolnt Volunteer Fire D)e-
partment Charity Rib Cook-off
was a success, as usual, and the
Cape St George Lighthouse
body is just about three feet from
completion. The next step is
placing the six-ton soapstone
lantern room deck in place on
top. This should be ready to do
sometime this week if the weath-
er holds. For more information.
see their website at www.stge-
orgelight.org.
The St. George Island Bap-
tist and United Methodist
Churches are holding a com-
bined Easter Sunday Sunrise
Service at the Public Beach on
St. George Island this Sunday.
Mar. 22, at 7 a.m. The weather
should be nice according to the
7-day forecast but it will be chilly
that early in the morning so
bring a jacket or sweater.
If you're thinking Easter is
pretty early this year, you're
right. The last time it was this
early was in 1913 and Easter
won't be as early as March 23
again until 2228 (220 years from
now). The earliest Easter can be
is March 22 and that won't hap-
pen until 2285! (The latest Easter
can be is April 25th) If this all
confuses you, you aren't alone
The date of Easter is based on

the Paschal full moon, which
can be as many as two days dif-
ferent from the actual full moon
In 325 AD astronomers estimat-
ed the dates of the future full
moons. These dates are called
"eccclsiastical full moons". The
Paschal full moon is the first
Ecclesiastical full moon after
March 20. (March 20, 325 AD
was the vernal equinox) If that
confuses you. the Western and
Eastern Orthodox Churches
don't even use the same calen-
dars to calculate the date. If It's
all the same to you. I'll let the
churches figure it out; my brain
hurts
I have been hearing about a
bear on the Island HeI was last
seen on the western half of the
Island several days ago in the
vicinity of Qth St Of course, bv


now he couldI .t anywhere I was
told hills morning he numight have
wcrn seen .i\ l.i we.st a.s the
Plantation liCe might even have
swum back to Fastpount but it's
still a tgoti idea. to watch your
pits and don't leave food or
garbage .round where Bruin can
gel at it
lThere wsems to be a great
deal of discussion lately about
science standards and how to
teach scientific principles The
discussion has centered on evo-
lution but it can just as easily and
indeed, it must. involve all of ih-
ence. I hope the communication
and discussion will continue. So,
I leave you this week with a quo-
ration from my own work, writ-
ten in 1992: "Science is a way of
thinking. It can probably be best
represented by a question mark.
What f? I wonder? How? Why?
Even when we think we have the
answer, we must continue to
look for an answer."
God Bless, and keep those
calls and e-mails coming. If you
have information from Eastpoint
or St. George Island that you
think we should be aware of or if

about cleaning up after your
dogs on public property. Now if
we can only figure out how to get
the people from feeding the scag-
ulls."
A lot of people have joined
in the effort to complete the proj-
ect under Osterbye's supervision:
Paul's Plumbing and the RV
park have supplied materials and
labor, the county has contributed
other necessary labor (the work
camp laborers have performed
heavy concrete work), Mecks
Electric has supplied some light
fixtures, Brooks Concrete has
supplied concrete to replace
floors, Regional Concrete of
Tallahassee has provided pour-
ing of floors and bases for con-
crete block walls, Ace Hardware
has supplied cinder blocks and


light fixtures, and Skip li:lnk has
volunteered to lay the tiles.
"We still need someone to
donate the paint and tiles,"
Osterbyc said, "and volunteers
to paint." One thing the volun-
tecrs have not yet bccn able to
reconstruct, Osterbye said, is the
original tile pattern. "I found this
in the sand when they were dig-
ging up around the building," he
said, displaying a section of rest-
room tile comprised of one-by-
one pale blue ceramic tile. "It
would be nice if we could restore
it to its original condition."
So the work will go on, and
local folks can look forward to a
fresh new restroom and clean
facilities in the near fixture.
"One thing I can tell you,"
Osterbyc said earlier this week.
"Even though Mr. Brown isn't
out here working alongside us, if'


it wasn't for the state of his
health, he would be out here
with the rest of us in his tool belt,
because he really wanted to see
this project happen, and he's
done all he can to realize it for
Carrabcllc."

The annual wearing of the green


"The Irish gave the bagpipes to the
Scotts as a joke, but the Scotts
haven't seen the joke yet." -Oliver
Herford
We passed another St.
Patrick's Day this week on
March 17, quietly, without bene-
fit of a parade, and tihe water in
and around Carrabelle didn't
turn green, but "tihe wearing of
the green" was certainly observ-
ed by those of Celtic (and othel)
origins, after all it is said that
"'everyone is Irish on St Patrick's
day."
In the interests of expanding
everyone's historical knowledge
of this patron saint of Ireland,
and arguably a patron of tipplels
as tile Irish have somewhat of a
reputation for being.
Patrick was not born in
Ireland, but in Britain, and most
of what is "known" about his litf
is the result of exaggerated story-
telling, more of tile Irish pen-
chant for turning a phrase clever-
ly. It is believed that Patrick was
taken captured at the age of 16
by Irish raiders and transported
to Ireland where he remained inI
captivity for six years, most like-
ly living in County Mayo near
Killalla. Iie worked outside, as a

shepherd during this period,
becoming a devout Chliistian,
anld began to di eai of con)vet-
ing the lrsh people, molst of
whom placticcd a nature-based
pagan religion
After six years a prisoner,
Patrick recorded late, he heard
God's voice speak to him in a
dream, telling him to leave
Ireland. To do so, he walked 200
miles to the Irish coast. After
escaping to Britain. Patrick
reported a second revelation, an
angel appeared to him in a
dream and told him to return to
Ireland as a missionary. and attci
15 years of training, he was
returned to Ireland with a dual


mission: to minister to Christians
already in Ireland, and to con-
vert the native Irish.
Patrick's success with tile
conivesion mission wais probably
dile to his understanding of tlhe
Ii sh and their culture, and
adapted ('liistian symbols and
motifs to familiar models they
could uindlestand.
Considering that traditional
Irish culture centered on a rich
tladitionl of oral legend and
myth, It is no wonder that
Palit'ik's stoly has become exag-
getalted over tlhe ceLtries spin'
ning exciting tales to remember
history has always been an Irish
way of life
The Irish always have the
last word, or at least the best
word in any situation. Here are a
fitw well-known proverbs:
May you live as long as you
want, and never want as long as
you live.
Continual cheerfulness is a
sign of wisdom
A change of work is as
good as a rest
Trouble hates nothing as
much as a smile
A good retreat is better
than a bad stand


Time is a great story teller.
The work praises the man.
There is light at the end of
the tunnel.
You will never plough a
field if you only turn it over in
your mind.
A good laugh and a long
sleep are the best cures in the
doctor's book.
Reputations last longer
than lives.
Don't postpone a good
deed.
Making the beginning is
one third of the work.
If God shuts one door, he
opens another.
But why wear green?
Ireland's nickname is "The
Emerald Isle" because the grass
on the hills is so green. Everyone
wears the color green on St.
Patrick's Day to honor The
Emerald Isle. If someone forgets
to wear green on St. Patrick's
Day, those who are wearing
green are allowed to give the
offender a pinch as a reminder.
llowever, if you pinch someone
who is wearing green, that per-
son gets to pinch you back 10
times! Mind who you pinch!

Don't buy

mallards

for Easter,

FWC says
With Easter approaching,
many parents contemplate pur-
chasing mallard ducklings as
gifts for their children. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) suggests buying your
child the stuffed-animal version
instead.
"Although these ducklings
might make nice pets while
they're young, they can live 10
years and quickly outgrow the
cute-and-fuzzv stage, leaving
full-size droppings on your patio
and outdoor furniture," FWC
waterfowl management coordi-
nator Diane Eggeman said.
"When this happens, parents
and children often grow tired of
caring for them and decide to
turn them loose into the wild."
They may not realize this is
illegal and puts Florida's native
wildlife in jeopardy. By law, no
one may possess, buy or sell mal-
lards in Florida without a special
permit from the FWC, and
releasing them is prohibited.
These activitiies are against
the law because domesticated
ducks, once released, are capable
of transmitting diseases. Most
importantly, releasing mallards
threatens the existence of the
Florida mottled duck, a unique
subspecies found only in penin-
sular Florida.

7TH ANNUAL EASTPOINT RIB COOKOFF

A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


The Franklin Chronicle


What do you think?
We want to know what you think of The lrhnklin Chnmic'le.
To encourage that, we're ofltring you an opportunity to express
yourself, and get a fiee two-month subscription in the protcss.
On Page 14 is a survey asking readers to rate various regular tea-
tures in 77he Chniale. Anyone who tills it out and returns it will
receive a tree two-month subscription. If you already subscribe, your
subscription will be extended by two months; if don't yet subscribe,
you will receive a mail subscription for two months for free.
What I hope to learn from the survey is whether any features
we're now carrying are simply not worth the paper they're printed on.
Maybe we can put our space to better
use by deleting a feature and adding a
different one.
In truth, the formula for creating
the perfect newspaper is simple As the
Noet York Times says, you just cover: All
the news that's fit to print.
Sadly, we don't have the budget of
the Nov York Times, but we do the best
we can with our small staff. Thinking of
7/. C.J.._ new features to add, new beats to
4 cover...that's the simple part. The hard
By Russl R erts part is doing it accurately and fairly
By Russell Roberts when you have a limited staff.
That's why this survey is designed
to assess the popularity of features we're now publishing, before try-
ing to stretch into new areas. Still, if you have thoughts about topics
you'd like to see covered better, please let me know.
Meanwhile, we've got a few new features to bring to your atten-
tion.
The first is a tide chart showing highs and lows at a few fishing
spots around the county. It runs with our new fishing column called
Shorelines. This week, it's on Page 8. Keep checking that page for
more tweaking.
The second change is a weekly Church Services column It's a
listing of area religious institutions and their major services Tioday.
that's on page 13. As more churches respond to our offrr of this free
service, we'll add to it. We hope this will be especially useful fir visl
tors to use as a guide to local churches they may be unfamlnlar with
Random thoughts
What has happened to indents' Surely you remember them Your
English teacher must have mentioned them when you were learning
basic grammar back in elementary school. Indents are those spaces
that mark the beginning of paragraphs.
At some point, business letters began to adopt an indentlcss style
of letter writing, replacing indents with a space between paragraphs
But the trend is spreading now. As more people send letters using e-
mail, they often don't indent paragraphs. More and more, I see all
types of writing sans indents. In fact, until late 2007, this newspaper
didn't use indents. Bringing them back was one of the first changes I
decided to make after I amved.
Long live indents!

No four vanilla'
It seems that when this old buddy of mine was
a child his dad took him and his siblings for a ride
to the ice cream parlor that was on the outskirts of
his hometown. This event, of course, got the kids
all excited The father, in order to keep the kids
occupied, would ask the children to perform the
same task every week "Now kids, I want you to be
thinking of what flavor ice cream cone you are
each going to order We don't want to keep the lady
waiting when we get there She is always very
busy "
The kids immediately went into their flavor
discussions
"I'm going to get
a strawberry .. no, no
I think I'll get a black
cherry "
"I'm going to get
a frozen pudding"
"Ouu. ouu. I'm
going to get orange
pineapple or maybe and t tt
fudge npple &4"4 ,44
"I think I'll get
banana or maybe By Richard E. Noble
cherry vanilla."
All the way out to the ice cream stand the kids
jabbered and discussed their possible choices
enthusiastically When the car finally stopped at the
much anticipated destination, all the kids rushed
out of the car and followed daddy up to the win-

Commissioners didn't even know what carmarkling

Earmarking is what goes on in Washington
1).C.. and 'Tallhassec and it is the term used for the
technique by which congressmen and senate's
secretly encode their home pet pork-barrel projects
into the various legislation. It is really a very com-
plicated process on the federal level and it takes a
budget large enough to hide things. Recently a


thinking in D.C.
group of young journalists have been studying the
process and it has been no easy effort to unmask all
the inveiglement and deceptive practices.
Most pork-barrel spending is money that is
spent here at home-minus whatever was not out-
right stolen along the way. If it is cut from the budg-
et what will happen to the money?
The pork-barrel critics think that by cutting
pork and even domestic spending somehow the
government will end up with a surplus and all the
faithful taxpayers will then get their money back.
Well, surpluses don't happen very often. Bill
Clinton claimed a surplus in 1998 of $69.2 billion.
This was the first supposed surplus in over 40 years.
But if the $99.2 billion Social Security surplus
gained from the 1983 increase in the Social
Security tax is subtracted, Clinton actually had a 30
billion dollar deficit. In 1983 an increase in the
Social Security tax was mandated to compensate
for the future flood of baby boomers. In 1999 when
Clinton claimed a $124.6 billion surplus, it seems
that the actual surplus was 1.9 billion after the baby
boomer Social Security surplus of $123.7 billion
was subtracted. The most significant surplus in the
Clinton years was in 2000 when an on budget sur-
plus of $86.6 billion was actually achieved. Of
course Clinton added in the old folk's pension once
again and came up with a surplus of over $230 bil-
lion.
All this surplus money then led George the
Lesser to decide that the federal government had
too much money, so he sent the old timer's Social
Security money to all of his rich buddies sort of a
CEO bonus plan. Now, once again they can scream
and yell about cutting benefits to the old folks.
We have two political philosophies today. We
have the tax and spend Democrats and the borrow
and spend Republicans. Actually the borrow and
spend Republicans are much worse economically
than the tax and spend Democrats ever dreamed of
becoming. Ronald Reagan borrowed and spent
enough to increase our national debt to double
what all of the previous presidents from George
Washington forward had accomplished. Bush the
Major doubled the debt that Ronny had amassed
and now Bush the I esscr is trying his best to out
borrow and spend his dad.
So it looks to me that whether we have a
IlPemocat or a Republicaln spending will continue.
There will be no "liuir vanilla" type thinking or
simple solutions. It will be eve\r flavor under the
rainbow and the squabbles will squabble endlessly.
It is inevitable: our history assures it. And if the
spending is going to continue I would rather have it
spent on pork here at home than fat and pure lard
abroad.

Boyd supports responsible

federal budget resolution


WASHINGTON, D.C
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida). the leader of the
Blue Dog Coalition and a mem-
ber of the House Budget
Committee, has voted for the fis-
cally responsible House Budget
Resolution for Fiscal Year 2009
(H.Con.Res. 312). touting its
strict adherence to pay-as-you-go
(PAYGO) rules and other key
provisions to reduce unnecessary
spending and address long term
fiscal challenges.
"My fellow Blue Dogs and I
have been sounding the alarm
and calling for fiscal responsibil-
ity for the past seven years." said
Congressman Boyd. "For those
first six years under the current
Administration, our calls fell on
deaf cars, but no more. The
House Budget Resolution, for
the second year in a1 row,
includes commonnsensc PAY(GO
spending rules and makes fiscal
responsibility a guiding princi-
ple."
Congressman Boyd worked
with his colleagues on the I louse
Budget Committee to include the
following priorities in the budget
resolution:
Adherence to PAYGO

County Administrator Alan

and Zoning Report from their
meeting on March 11. The P&Z
Board had unanimously approv-
ed the following items and rec-
ommended that the Commis-

Critical Shoreline Applica-
tion for consideration of a
request to construct a Single
Family Private Dock on west
Bayshore Drive, St. George


Island, by Martin Newman and
Sandra Mackler. Board unani-
inously approved the applica-
tion.

Board unanimously approved
the application.

Approval for a 2,400 sq. ft. gen-
eral store and a 1,200 sq. ft.
office space on 2.25 acres at 127
Harbor Circle, Alligator Point,
by Paul Parker. There was much
discussion between the Commis-
sioners, the lot owner and a resi-
dent of Harbor Circle about the
location of the two driveways for
the project. The concern was
about the amount of traffic that
the project would create on
Harbor Circle, a narrow dirt
road. Parker assured the Board
that he wanted all of the traffic
generated by the general store to
be diverted to the paved road
fronting on his lot and not
Harbor Circle. The resident had
no objecton to the general store
being located on Alligator Point,
she was just concerned that the
traffic would find its way onto
Harbor Circle. which is not built
to handle that kind of traffic
The Board unanimously approv-
ed the Site Plan
Pierce also presented the
report from the Advisory Board
of Adjustment that met
Wednesday. March 5. They rec-
ommended approval for the fol-
lowing:

Weekly economic update for
the week of March 17, 2008


Quote of the week
"Life is a great big canvas; throw all the paint on it you can."
-Danny Kaye
Fed's surprise move lifts stocks
Last week, the Federal Reserve announced it would ramp up its
lending to aid the financial system, proposing to loan up to $200 bil-
lion in Treasuries to banks and broker-
ages in exchange for top-rated mortgage-
backed securities. The loans will have
28-day terms. As Global Insight econo-
mist Brian Bethune put it, "the Fed is
trying to say, 'This isn't as bad as you
think and we're going to put our money
where our mouth is.' In response, the
Dow Jones Industrial Average had its
best day in more than five years: a gain
EUf L of 416.66, or 3.6%,
Sponsored by Hint of hope for housing sector?
Peter F Crowell, CFP The good news: according to
RealtyTrac, America's foreclosure rate
dropped 4% in February. The bad news: foreclosures were still up
60% versus February 2007. Also, the latest data showed the number
of REO properties up 110% from a year ago.
CPI flat, but retail sales down
Did it just become easier for the Fed to cut interest rates? Maybe.
New Labor Department data showed the Consumer Pnce Index
unchanged for February; core CPI also stayed flat. Analysts had
expected both benchmarks to rise 0.2% for the month. The
Commerce Department reported a 0.6% decline in retail sales for
February; the numbers were not as bad as those in December (-0.7%)'
but they were down from January (+0.4%).
$1,000 gold, $110 oil
As expected, gold prices cracked the S1,000 ceiling last week and
wound up at $999.50 Friday afternoon on the New York Mercantile
Exchange.6 Oil hit $111 a barrel on Thursday; pnces settled at
$110.21 on the NYMEX on Friday.
A winning week
Thanks to last Monday's liftoff, stocks had their best week an
months, even with a 195-point drop on a wild Fnday after the Fed
moved to bail out Bear Stearns Cos. from its liqudity crisis. On
Friday afternoon, Moody's Investors Servce downgraded the long-
term rating of the investment banking giant to Baal from A2.

Answer to question #277 is: empty space.
Everything you can touch is made of millions of
atoms. Each atom contains a nucleus (center) and elec-
trons around it. In between the nucleus and the electrons is
empty space. Electrical charges help atoms hold their
shapes, and cause atoms to cling to each other to form
objects such as a table or a floor. No matter how solid any-
thing feels, it is truly made of mostly empty space.

A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


The Franklin Chronicle


Every Monday I volunteer at
the Apalachicola Riverkeeper on
Avenue 1) in Apalachicola
across trom the post office. Folks
come in and ask a lot ot ques-
tions, some about fishing. They
are told about the rivers, the
bays, and the Gulf, fresh and salt
water fishing.
It strikes me during these
conversations just what a
remarkable treasure we have
here. Guests visited this past
weekend from Gainesville and
got a fresh fish dinner caught the
day before. Grouper fishing in
State waters has just about
played out so it was up the East
River for some delicious hybnd
stripes.
The good news is that the
grouper season in Federal waters
opened on March 16. Now you
can fish some of those wrecks
and hard bottoms that hav had
no pressure for the past month.
I had a question from a read-
er about drifting for grouper.
Once you find your spot, it can
be a good practice to drift it for a
while to see if anything is hun.
gry You can power drift (stay on
the spot by kicking the motor in
and out of gear) Putting out a
marker buoy to guide you will
help. If the fish are biting. you
can anchor up. Often a bag of'
bunker chum hung over the side
will help get the fish going As

Florida's top bream spots make for lively fishing


Most anglers start fishing in
fresh water, often from a bank or
pier, and their first catch is usual-
ly a bream. The image of a boy
and his dog, with a cane pole
and a can of worms, brings to
life a symbol of the American
tradition of fishing and stresses
the ideal of youth connecting
with nature and learning index
pendence. Just think it all began
with that first breanm.
Florida's 7,700 named lakes
and ponds and 10,500 miles of
streams and rivers, brimn with
bream, "Bream" is a local term
used throughout the Southeast
and includes various deep-bod-
ied panfish from the sunfish falnt-
ily.
The most common are blue-
gill, redear sunfish (shellcracker),
redbreast sunfish, spotted sunfish
stumpknockerr) and warmouth.
Although black bass are "sun-
fish," they are not considered to
be bream. Almost any water
body in the Sunshine State,
regardless of size or locale, con-
tains hungry bream.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion anticipates that good year
classes of sunfish produced in
200- and 2005 will maintain the
fisheries in 2008 in southern and
central peninsular Florida. In
Central Florida, shellcracker
often spawn during the third
week of March or first week of
April.
They begin to concentrate in
the Panhandle in mid- to late.

missing for 2008, however, is

iled by environmental conse-
quences following record-setting

Grouper season
The recreational and com-
mercial harvest of red, gag and
black grouper in Gulf of Mexico
federal waters and the commer-
cial harvest of these species in
Gulf state waters reopened on
March 15.
During the open-harvest sea-
son in all Gulf waters, recre-
ational anglers may keep no
more than five red, gag and black
grouper in any combination
daily, except that only one of
these fish may be a red grouper.
The captain and crew of for-hire
vessels fishing in the Gulf may
not retain the recreational
grouper bag limit.
Minimum size limits of 20
inches total length for red
grouper and 22 inches total
length for gag and black grouper
apply to sport anglers in the
Gulf.
The minimum size for the
commercial harvest of red
grouper in the Gulf is 20 inches
total length and the commercial
minimum size for Gulf gag and
black grouper is 24 inches total
length.
Red, gag and black grouper
in the Gulf are also managed by
an established annual commer-
cial harvest quota.
Enforcement actions
S FRANKLIN: On Marh 5
and 6, a commercial oyster har-
vesting detail was conducted in
Apalachicola Bay. The detail was
organized by Officer Don
Walker. It consisted of 17 offi-
cers from Franklin, Gulf, Bay
and Liberty Counties working
the areas of Cat Point, East Hole
and Dry Bar. A total of 88 ves-
sels were boarded with 152 com-
mercial harvesters being inspect-
ed. The officers issued 92 writ-
ten warnings and 13 citations
during the detail.
SGULF: An undercover
investigator observed a local
man selling oysters out of the
back of his pickup truck.
Officer Tony Lee arrived to assist
in the investigation. It was dis-
covered the man was selling
uncertified oysters and failed to
possess a saltwater retail license.
The appropriate citations were
issued. Eight bags of oysters
were returned to Apalachicola
Bay.
Free Fishing Weekend
FWC has designated the
weekend of April 5 and 6 as Free
Fishing Weekend. Both residents
and nonresidents can fish in pub-
lic fish waters across the state
without a license. The FWC also
is offering a special five-year
firshwatcr fishing license bonus
program, which kicks off on
April 1. This promotion provides
an extra incentive to anglers in
the form of free tackle, publica-
tions and fishing accessories that
add to the convenience and cost
savings already associated with a
five-year license. The first 3,000
customers to upgrade to a five-
year freshwater fishing license
after April 1 will save from $6 to
more than $20 in fees.

If you spend ten minutes a day

Many people live in a per-

if you stay organized and

amountt of time and effort, you
can have an office that works for

EARTH



TALK
Questions & Answers
About Our Environment

Dear EarthTalk:
My pediatrician swears by
those gel hand sanitizers for low-
ering the risk of my family get-
ting sick during cold and flu sea-
son. But I've also heard that
these products can be dangerous
to kids if ingested. Are there any
safer alternatives that work just
as well?
- Jason Blalock, Oakland, CA
A 2005 study by the
Children's Hospital in Boston
compared illness rates across a
study group of 292 families-
half of them got hand sanitizers
while the other half were given
literature advising them of the
benefits of frequent hand wash-
ing. The findings revealed that
those families who used hand
sanitizers experienced a 59 per-
cent reduction in gastrointestinal
illnesses and that the increased
use of sanitizers correlated to a
decreased spread of contagions
in general.
Another study conducted at
Colorado State University yield-
ed similar conclusions, that alco-
hol-based hand sanitizers were
as much as twice as effective as
either regular soap or antibacter-
ial soap at reducing germs on
human hands. A Purdue Univer-
sity study, however, concluded
that while alcohol-based hand
sanitizers may kill more germs
than plain or triclosan-based
soaps. they do not prevent more
infections that make people sick.
Instead they may kill the human
body's own beneficial bacteria by
stopping the skin of its outer
layer of oil.
The down side of the
gel/alcohol products is their dan-
ger as poison, especially for
young children who may ingest
the gel by licking it off their
hands or eating it directly out of
dispensers. Purell and Germ-X,
two of the leading brands, each
contain 62 percent ethyl alcohol.
While this alcohol is what gives
the products their germ-busting
power. it also puts kids at risk of
alcohol poisoning. A few squirts
of the hand sanitizer-which is
equivalent to124 proof booze-
is enough to make a kid's blood
alcohol level .10. which is the
equivalent of being legally drunk
in most states.
So what's a concerned par-
ent to do? Unfortunately, the so-
called greener alternatives out
there aren't safe to swallow
either. EO Hand Sanitizer, for
example, though it uses organic
lavender oil also contains alco-
hol to sanitize the skin surface,
and would also be considered
poison if a large enough amount
was ingested. Similarly greener
(but still not safe to eat) products
are available from Avant and All
Terrain.
For now, soap and warm
water and constant nagging of
your kids to wash their hands-
may be the safest way to sanitize.
Also, make sure that any hand
sanitizer dispensers you may still
use are kept out of the reach of
little hands.

the air of the historic Dixie
Theatre, however, transforms the
room into the sexiest and classi-
est place this side of Chicago or
New York Even Brenda Bayne,
who helped with that transfor-

enchanted nature of the Dixie.
She said to the listeners enjoying
her music, "This is quite a treas-

live music with such good sound
in a small town. I'd like to take
this theatre home with me."
About Apalachicola. she said,
"Apalachicola is a rare, special

we need to enjoy it before it's dis-

Two couples from Ontario,
Canada called her singing, "sul-
try, sensuous." The four, who say
they "Love the Dixie" call them-
selves "Bob Milne groupies" for
following Milne around the
country, which is how they dis-
covered the Dixie Theatre. They
also expressed their pleasure
with the solo work of the piano
player. Robert D'Amico. He and
bassist, Mark Neuenschwandcr,
received much applause for their
solo improvisations.
The smooth, steady, focused
jazz found a very appreciative
audience at Apalachicola Friday
night and the appreciation was
well deserved. The old red brick


walls rang with applause and
once again the Dixie lived up to
its reputation as a source of qual-
ity entertainment.
The next show at the Dixie
will be on Friday, Saturday and
Sunday when Bob Patterson will
present his program of folklore,
humor, and folksong. His songs
and 12-string guitar technique
will take you on a trip through
the backroads of Florida to visit
a way of life that is fast fading.
The show is free to the pub-
lic and is sponsored by the,
Florida Humanities Council and
the Dixie Theatre. Shows are at 8,
p.m. on Friday and Saturday ardd
3 p.m. on Sunday. For more

was having a shorter season and
a higher bag-liuim preferred. She

come down between those two
options. Ms. Walker also encour-

by Pierce in his position as
Director of Administrative Ser-
vices for the following:
Approval of a change order
lbr the St. George Island Boat
Ramp for $9,562.50 to coat the
sheet pile at the boat ramp with
coal tai epoxy to extend the life
)of the piles. As there tie giant
lunds available, the Board unani-
ltmously .ippioved tile request.
Board to authorize a
School Board request for the
Supervisor of Elections to hold a
special election on June 10 to
consider an increase in ad val-
orem village of .5 mill per year
for three years for operating
expenses necessary to enhance
the quality of Franklin County's
Public School system. The
School Board will pay the Elec-
trons Supervisor for the cost of

only way the County has to pro-
vide adequate salaries to the fac-
ulty and support staff at the
schools. Board unanimously
approved the request.
Request for board action to
write a letter of support for St.
George, Carrabelle and St.
Marks Lighthouses to apply for a

Board unanimously approved
the request.
Request for Board Chair-
man to sign a contract with
Jason White reducing bid
amount to $39.587.92 for the
CR30A shoulder enhancement
project. The reduction reflects
dhe cost of hauling dirt for the

request.
Pierce informed the Board
that:
A letter was received from
DCA stating it is reviewing the
affordable housing submission
made by Franklin County. They
Intend to issue a Notice of Intent


by April 10.
The County has received
information regarding grants for
First Responder and Fire
Departments for protective gear.
The information has been
relayed to the Fire Departments.
DEP is allowing the coun-
ty to complete the Alligator
Beach Renourishment Permit
using the funds from the
I.egjslative appropriation. The
reason for obtaining the permit is
that it will allow the county to do
some debris removal on the point
utilizing the remaining Legisla-
tive appropriation. This will not
cost the county or residents of
Alligator Point any money since
the clean up will be done with
state funds.
Other Items
Marcia Johnson, Clerk of
Court, discussed the budget cuts
with the Commissioners and
asked for their suggestions in
shaping the budget.
Attorney Schuler reported
that he has worked on the fol-
lowing projects: Affordable
Housing, Hospital, Turtle Ordin-
ance, Water Flow in Apalachi-
cola River Litigation, Alligator
Point, and Eastpoint Water &
Sewer.
Andrew Gurganus and
Terry Ramirez, Boy Scouts, were
introduced to the Commission-
ers. They appeared before the
Commissioners as part of a Boy
Scout Merit Badge project on
government. They asked the
Commissioners where they got
the money for the budget, and
how Commissioners decided
how to spend the money and
how people appearing before the
Commissioners got on the agen-
da. The Commissioners gave the
boys a brief lesson on how the
Board of Commissioners works.
The meeting adjourned at
11:30 a.m., but Commissioners
returned for an afternoon session
to discuss planning and zoning
issues. The summary of that
meeting will be published next
week in The Frnklin Chronicle.

Dog Island from Page I

historical archealogical team
from Florida State University.
The fate of El Tigre was chroni-
cled by one of three survivors,
whose first publication became a
best-seller throughout Europe,
and became the basis for many
18th century Europeans' notions
about Florida and the New
World. That first publication, in
the typical flamboyant style of
the times, was published in 1768
in Bordeaux by a French mer-
chant marine captain, and titled
"The Shipwreck and Adwnnturs of
Monsieur Pierre Viaud,"and creat-
ed an immediate international
bestseller. His adventure-laden
story of his ordeal of shipwreck
on Dog Island, and his wander-
ings in the wilderness, this
remarkable and lurid tale rivals
any modern adventure tale,
boasting betrayals, deaths and
near-misses, ingenuity worthy of
MacGuyver, encounters with
"savage" Indians, desperate
hand to jaw combat with an alli-
gator, cannibalism, murder, and
sex. Viaud's tendency towards
embellishment put the factual
claim of his tale to the test in
early editions when he claimed
sighting lions, tigers and bears
(oh, my!) in the Florida onshore
wilderness, but the obviously fac-
tual nature of much of the man-
uscript caused critics to overlook
these exaggerations and forgive
the author's errors as results of
faulty witness quoting in error.
Viaud, who was as afflicted
as many of his time were with
the late eighteenth century
assumption of racial and moral
superiority, was not so morally
superior that he resisted the ves-
sel's captain's young wife's
seduction and subsequent sug-
gestion that they murder and
consume Viaud's faithful black
slave to avoid starvation, seemed
to take this suggestion in stride.
and fully within his right as a
European, thus bringing the
question to modern minds as to
who were the barbarians in the
picture, the Frenchmen or the
Florida Indians, who also suf-
fered from their encounters with
the Europeans.
Dog Island then enjoyed
quite a few years of "peaceful
enjoyment" by coastal settlers,

who brought the settler's econo-
my of organized fishing, selfish
gathering, and transportation of
cotton, lumber, and salted
seafood. Eventually, homes were
built there, most of them on the
Gulf side, a few further-thinking
builders erecting beach-friendly
homes on the bay side.
At present there are about
100 homes on the island,
although most of them are vaca-
tion homes. There are 30-33 full-
time residents, most of whom
practice xeriscaping (use of
native vegetation for landscap-
ing) for their sand-swept resi-
dences.
Visitors can enjoy the barrier
island beauty by boat or air-
plane, and though there are no
typical tourist amenities: no
fixd, public restrooms, and lim-
ited rooming (which must be
arranged in advance through a
local agency) there is plenty for
the outdoors and beach-lover.
Birdwatching (especially
shore species) opportunities are
endless, beach and coastal hik-
ing, and wildlife and natural
habitats give endless hours of
photography and sketch artists
opportunities. Some of the best
sunsets anywhere visit there
year-round, and at least one
famous artist resides there and
takes full advantage of the natu-
ral beauty for his subject matter.
Perfect Florida dune habitat
strews the sandy "hills' with all
manner of native vegetation, the
golden waves of sea oats topping
the ist. (No pcking the sea oats;
no walking over the dunes, no
dogs allowed )
For picnicking or camping.
locals favor the far points of
either end, the west end (at the
pass) best for day rips, shore
fishing, and crabbing (in season).
The east end (with shifting sand
banks under the blue waters.
approach by boat at your penl!)
camping, shelling, and beach-
bumming. This is the area most
used during the annual Whlte
Trash Bash (ask a local sailor for
details), which is pretty much
just what it sounds like; a party
with shameless T-shirts.
The whole island is one big
shifting sand bank, as a Flonda
State student proved several
years ago while studying the


beach's rate of erosion and
build-up over a period of about
three years. As a master's degree
project study, she found that the
island was actually moving
shoreward at the rate of about 2-
3 feet per year, thus partially
explaining the many homes on
stilts now standing in the Gulf,
where once they were located on
shore.
One more notable historical
event concerning Dog Island:
On July 11,1947, eight C-47
troop carriers left Fort Benning
GA, carrying 116 paratroopers
advanced specialist trainees
bound for a routine training
jump over Dog Island, a jump
that had been accomplished by
over 1,000 previous trainees with
no mishaps. But something went
wrong that day. In 2004, on a D-
Day anniversary visit to the old
amphibious training camp,
Andrew Smith came to the
island on a pilgrimage to the
place where he almost lost his
life, and where 16 of his com-
rades did lose theirs.
Recalling that day, he said,
"The instructors told us what to
do if we found ourselves coming
down over water. We had the
quick-release parachutes; we
were supposed to pull the
release, hold the parachute lines,
then inflate our Mac Wests when
we were about 10 feet above the
water." Smith followed instruc-
tion, then recalled that once in
the water, the island looked
miles away "I thought I'd never
make it there, the gear (full com-
bat) was so heavy Once reaching
the shore, he looked around and
there was no sign of his com-
rades. It was later speculated that
they pulled the life vest lines first,
then became entangled in the
parachute lines, were dragged
down by the heavy gear, and
drowned
On his 2004 pilgrimage,
Smith traveled to the island,
where he stood on the dune bank
where he came ashore, and wept
for his lost comrades 60 years
after the incident.
Just another face of the
intriguing. beautiful aspect of the
barber sand banks to contem-
plate for the modern visitor.

warns of


travel


scams

With Spring Break here and
families planning for summer
vacations, Attorney General Bill
McCollum has issued a con-
sumer advisory cautioning
Florida residents and guests to
be wary of the various scams and
fraud which could be associated
with vacation packages and
other travel-related services.
The Attorney General en-
couraged consumers to report
travel-related fraud to his office,
particularly issues related to
improperly disclosed surcharges,
misleading advertisements or
problems associated with time-
shares. Complaints about travel-
related issues ranked third last
year among the categories of
complaints reported to the
Attorney General's Office.
"Florida is well-known for
its allure to travelers, from both
within the state and other loca-
tions, and we must protect not
only our citizens and our guests
but also our reputation as an
attractive destination," said
Attorney General McCollum.
The Attorney General's
Office announced settlements
with two cruise lines over the
imposition of a fuel supplement
on cruise passengers. Royal
Caribbean Cruise Lines and
Celebrity Cruises agreed to
refund $21 million to consumers
nationwide who were charged
the fuel surcharge after they had
booked their cruise. The
Attorney General commended
the two cruise lines for their will-
ingness to take actions to resolve
this matter in their customers'
best interest. The settlements will
serve as a model for the rest of
the cruise line industry and the
Attorney General expressed his
expectation that the other com-
panies would follow suit.
Other common travel-relat-
ed problems are associated with
vacation timeshares, which give
consumers the right to use a
vacation home for a limited, pre-
planned period. Timeshare
scams occur both at the time of
the original purchase and at the
point of resale. Victims of
unscrupulous timeshare sales
companies are often contacted
either over the phone or are
mailed a postcard asking the vic-
tim to call a toll-free phone num-
ber. Before consumers decide to
either purchase or resell a time-
share, the Attorney General
advised them to consider the fol-
lowing tips:
Be wary of the hard sales
pitch.
When it comes to purchas-
ing a new timeshare, the sales-
person may give the impression
that the papers have to be signed
that same day.
Consumers should remem-
ber that they always have the
right to leave the sales office and
come back later.
Consumers should always
read their contracts to determine
what cancellation rights they
have after the papers are signed.
Before buying a timeshare, con-
sumers should consider whether
they will want to return to the
same vacation spot each year.
Be wary of too-good-to-be-
true claims when it comes to
resales.
