New water

plan goes

against

Florida
The Corps of Engineers has
proposed a new water-sharing
plan that would allow less water
to flow into Apalachicola Bay
during extreme droughts, despite
evidence that the plan is likely to
harm threatened animal life in
the Bay.
The new plan comes after
settlement negotiations between
the governors of Florida, Geor-
gia and Alabama broke down in
February. That led Interior
Secretary Dirk Kempthorne to
say that the federal government
would impose its own solution.
The plan, which lawmakers
saw Tuesday, would reduce
flo s, to a minimum of 4 500
cubic feet per second at Jim
Woodruff Dam during extreme

Last year, Anthony and
Renee Stone got the summons
they had awaited for two long
years, and they set out on a long
trip for the final phase that
would complete their journey to
a family.
Here is how Renee explains
what happened:
Anthony and Renee, devot-
ed Christians, were called to
adopt and found their confirma-

concert in \l'nr of .'0ils There,
they spoke with Amanda Clark.

hts hours a bit, although he \will

Mclnnis has been commut-

Mclnnis has % li:ii said, over
the years, that due to rapidly ris

The Franklin Chronicle


week I wrote
that people
should be allowed to learn from
their experiences without contin-
ually being cushioned fiom the
negative results of their filed
experiments.
I have noticed in two
columns recently, good illustra
tions of what I was writing about
as relates to children. Columnllst
Lori Bergman decries the mar-
keting of a new product called
"gLovies" which are designed to
be worn by children to keep
them from contact with dirty
things such as doorknobs, stait
rails, rest room faucets, and play-
ground equipment. The website
for "My Momn Knows Best
Products" calls them fun to wear.
Somehow the ftin in wearing
these things escapes me; so does
the value of insulating our chil-
dren from all kinds of possibly
harmful things. We sanitize, pro-
tect, cushion, and fence in our
children. By so doing, we fall to
prepare them for the real world
Howi will they develop immuni-
ties if they are never exposed to
germs" The Aztec cIvilization
was wiped out by smallpox and
typhus, diseases to which they
had no immunity. How will they

they are never allowed to use a

On the waterfront in

While the Waterfront Opp-
ortunity group is seeking sugges-
tions and participation from
Carrabelle citizens on the goal of
revitalizing the c~Ounriim of the
waterfront, a few businesses
.ilong the river have been holding
on to their traditional livelihood,
sandwiched in .1iuniii empty
building' and condominiums,
interspersed with recreational
boat docks.
The condominiums and
recreational docks have taken the
place of the traditional fish hous-
es and illed up shrimp anud fish-

This speaks volumes about
the allure and intrinui of the

some n11.ivini: questions. What

Vacation is from the I atin "
vac.all," meaning simply "to be
emriptv, void, or I'ct Most of,
the time, it means "leisure time

The Word I)etective says "it
means a literal release or respite
from doing omcilhin.tl that you
didn't want to be doing to begin

or official duties."
One comment I found
equated vacation with "spirit
time," which I believe implies


Daniel used a time-delay to

ri claiming or balancing one's
spini or spiritual nature. I think
this point is important, as it
seems our spiritual nature has
become destitute in today's hec-
tic-paced and crazy world. I
think Daniel and Brigitte have
the right idea about vacation. It
is not necessarily what many
people think of when you say
vacation; Disney world."
Daniel and I have e-mailed
back and forth since meeting last
week. Daniel's career has migrat-
ed into phollograph\ which I
have an interest in, so I wanted
to i.t in touch. Our meeting
.ppe.inced that it might develop
into a iiwndt,,1)' In one e-mail,
he told ile. "I got two seatrouts
yesterday at the little dock: but

In his next e-mail, titled tlhe
catch of the day," he spotted a
photo of a 2-' riedlh. and said,
"See what 1 .ot today." He
sounded like a kid in a candy
store.
I believe Daniel and Brigitte
will take home what they came
for. They will take yet another
memory of time spent along the
Forgotten Coast. They will take
the memory o time well spent in
b.il.lini.: their lives between
work and lal\. rat race and
leisure, and perhaps insanity and
sanity. They will take a piece of
the Forgotten Coast home with
them.
And yet, all of that wonder-
ful allure and ambience is still
here for the rest of us.

Apalach postmaster

says if it sounds too

good to be true...
This week's Guest Column was submitted by Apalhiht ohl a l'ostmaster
Cathy Watts.
"Your name's John, right? John, will you do me a ftvoi? I need
to cash this check, but I don't have an account with the bank II
you'll deposit it tor me, I'll give you 20 percent just for helping me
out!"
Remember the old adage: It' something sounds too good to be
true, it probably is. In this case, the person may be trying to hustle
you out of your hard-earned savings. The check or money order may
be counterfeit, and if it is, you'll be out the money.
Hustlers have been known to set up this scam in a variety of
ways:
They overpay you for an Item you sold on the Internet, then ask
you to wire-transfer them the ditlerence.
They tell you that you've won a foreign lottery or sweepstakes.
They tell you to deposit the check which represents just part of your
winnings. If you send back $1,000 or S2,000 to "cover the taxes," you
can get the rest of your jackpot
A "work-at-home" offer includes an advance payment for signing
up. All you have to do is deposit the check or money order and send
back two-thirds of the money via wire transfer

Medicare: 'Free' health insurance!


I will be turning 65 years old in a few months.
For the first time in my life I will be eligible for
some kind of health insurance I guess I have
always been eligible, I just couldn't afford it But
now because I am 65 I am a candidate for
Medicare "free" health care Wow, isn't that
great' I can't believe


But for all you
Baby Boomers behind
me. I will review what
I have found out so
far


U


First of all
Medicare comes in
several parts. It is
kind of like an alpha-
bet puzzle. There's T4 &4t*0.
Part A. Part B. Part C,
Part D and possibly By Richard E. Noble
some other parts that
I am not aware of yet.
It seems that part A of the Medicare is the "Free"
part I haven't really read what Part A actually cov-
ers but who cares it's free.
Part B is going to cost me $100 dollars a
month It is also going to cost my wife $100. That's
$100 per month each. Okay, so that's $200 per
month But what if I don't have $200 per month?
Don't worry they will deduct it from my Social
Security check So now our already meager Social
Security income will be reduced by $200 per
month
But the $200 per month doesn't cover all my
potential medical bills. It only covers 80%. So I
need to buy another policy to cover what the
Medicare isn't going to pay. This is called a
Medigap policy. Medigap policies are varied alpha-
bctlcallv also and they run from A through L.
"A" is the no-frills not much better than noth-
ing catcgo v. B is slightly better than A and C is the
slightly better than B. B costs more than A and C is
a little too much for anybody. After C it is Disney
World alnd Never Never Iand.
Any Mcdicap policy will cost me between
$100 and $300 per month. That is $100 to $300
each. My wife will need her own policy. And that
is in addition to the $100 each that we are already
paying for Part B. But even if you can afford F or J
you still won't be covered for everything. And no
matter what you pay this year it can all go up next
year. You must also watch out for the way your
Mcdigap policy is rated. It can be community
rated, issue rated, or attained age rated. It could
cost you big bucks if you don't find out what these
ratings mean. And once you start paying your
Medigap insurance company don't stop. If you
stop for more than 63 days you will have to be
"reborn".
But unfortunately a person is still not covered
for any drugs that he might need. And drugs
involve co-payments and "donut holes." The co-
payment means that I still have to pay some of the
costs even if I have the insurance. Let's just skip the
donut holes for now -it's too complicated. But


basically a donut hole means more money that I
have to pay even if I have all this insurance.
For me to be insured against drug co-payments
and expensive drugs will cost me another $40 to
$100 per month. You can't buy donut hole insur-
ance even if you work at Dunkin' Donuts.
So, that's another $40 to $100 each.
So where are we here? I need $200 for me and
my wife for Part B. I need $200 to $600 for what
part B doesn't cover. I need $100 to $200 for co-
pays and phenomenal drugs with no donut holes.
We need $500 to $1000 per month in order to be
covered by Medicare.
Unfortunately I can not afford this "free"
insurance anymore than I could afford the "free-
enterprise" insurance. In fact I don't see much dif-
ference between the free insurance and the pay
insurance. I can't afford either of them.
But we do have other options. We can pay the
$200 per month for Part B and get a special insur-
ance by some insurance company (probably with a
main office in China or India) that has teamed up
with the U.S. Government and Medicare. They will
take over the management of my Medicare
Insurance. This is some form of "privatization"
thought up by the Bushomanics, I presume. With
this special policy I will be covered for some things
and not covered for a bunch of other things that I
will have to pay "out-of-pocket". If I have any
problems I will have to fight this Hong Kong insur-
ance company rather than call my Congressman.
This ploy lets my Congressman off the hook. And
if I get hospitalized for any length of time I owe
somebody $3,500 minimum. If my wife and I both
get sick at the same time we will owe this person or
group $7,000 each year.
I have another option though. I could skip the
"free" Medicare insurance entirely and keep all of
my Social Security check. If I get sick I can die-
just like they used to do in the good old days; or I
can go to the hospital and tell them to send me a
bill. If I don't die from the MRSA infection or
Septicemia infection that I catch at the hospital
(195,000 people die every year from things they
picked up while in the hospital or from medical
mistakes), I can get a job-if anyone will hire or
pay me in my sick and advanced age-or send
them payments from my Social Security check.
In the meantime, we can take the $200 per
month that we didn't send to the Government for
Part B and go to Biloxi once a year and see if I can
win a jackpot. Maybe if I win a jackpot in Biloxi I
will have enough money to buy some "free"
Medicare insurance. Of course maybe with the
fines and penalties for joining late, I won't be able
to afford it then either-even with the jackpot
money.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Partnership can help


Lombardi Dropertv preserved Weems Memorial


Thejbllowing Guest Column was
written by Linda Raffield, secre-
tary of the Franklin County
Sea/fod Workers Association.
The Board of County Com-
missions approved the purchase
for the Lombardi Property and
the deal will be closed later this
week. The Lombardi Property is
one of the oldest seafood houses
in Apalachicola and of itself is a
huge part of Apalachicola histo-
ry.
The ink has not yet dried
and already there is debate over
what will become of the proper-
ty. The purchase of the property
was specifically requested be-
cause of the need for commer-
cial seafood landings for the
"seafood workers" of the indus-
try. Once again the poster child
for the needs of the industry, the
workers, find themselves taking a
back seat as the Oyster Seafood
Task Force has recommended
that the Allen Boyd Oyster Lab
be located on the property.
At the request of the
FCSWA, the property was to be
overseen by Parks and
Recreation so that it would be in
the best interests of the entire
county and not just the interests
of the a few. Well over two years
ago a presentation was given to
P&Z for the Lombardi Property
which included, a. Landing
Park, Observation Deck. Hiern-
tage Center, Picnic and Park
Area to name a few This was a
common sense approach to pre-
serving a piece of Apalachicola
history, Lombardi's and the his.
tory of the Seafood Workers of
Franklin County. The idea fell
into limbo for a while until the
County Commissioners approv-
ed a Feasibility Study, and again
Lombardi's was named as a
viable landing park for the
seafood workers.

being the boat d of original intent
it seems the OSTF)S has decided
that it wants to advise the county
and make recommendations but
does not want the county to be
able to have control over them
There seems to be some confu-
sion to the interpretation of what
both want The County Conm-
mission wanted an advisory
board, the perception that is
received from the OSTF is they
want to be considered an author-
ity over the industry and the peo
pie who work in the industry Of
course the FCSWA still has a say
in that.
An old saying comes to
mind. "Power tends t o corrupt.
and absolute power corrupts
absolutely" a famous quotation
from John )a.lbtrg as one pon-
ders the meaning of a self.pro-
claimed independent board
dominating and demanding thev
be put in charge without the
resiponsbilly of reporting to the
BCC for their actionsV
When you also take into
consideration that the FCSWA
has voiced its concerns many
times with the make up of the
OSTF and the obvious condem-
nation-s of a man working for a
living, speaking out against the
very men they work for. it makes
it hard to feel like they are on
equal footing especially with

Still time to enter Relay for Life


BY LAUREL NEWMAN
Chronicle Correspondent
The American Cancer Soc-
iety's Relay for Life for Carra-
belle will be held this weekend,
starting Friday, April 18, at 6
p.m. at Vrooman Park in East-
point, and concluding Saturday
April 19 at noon.
There are teams signed up
and prepared to participate
countywide, with the notable
exception of Carrabelle. Relay
participants last year reported a
good turnout, but this year's


response has not been nearly as
receptive, local organizers say.
There are no Carrabelle teams
entered this year, reported ACS
volunteerfranklin organizer .udy
Cook.
This is an event that all citi-
zens should support and attend;
cancer is the leading killer in
Franklin County, not heart dis-
ease, as is widely believed.
"Everyone has a vested
interest in the efforts made by
the ACS in research and educa-
tion," Cook said. "These goals
are really important, and their


success may be imipotrant too,
for every citizen and their loved
ones some day.
"Everyone is welcome to
join the effort, and donations are
always accepted. We are hoping
for another good turnout, and
there is something for everyone,
including games and bouncing
toys for the children..."

The passage of a penny
increase in the county sales tax
designated for health care in
Fl:anklin County is a chance to
help oui citizens obtain more
seI vices ,and battle health out-
comlles
Some people have asked
why we need to pursue a partnel-
ship with any other hospital in
the spending of these new dol-
lis. And this is a legitimate
question. They say, for example,
that old ways of doing things
may be the best course for
Franklin County. Use only a
local board that reports to the
county and oversees operations
and keep the money "at home."
The problem with that
approach is that times have
changed. Health care delivery in
2008 is a very different proposi-
tion from the 50s and 60s that
many of us remember. In those
days, your family doctor directed
much of the process. These days
Medicare and insurance compa-
nies are much more involved in
health care decisions, often not
OK-ing what your family doctor
deems is the best remedy. It is
now a very complicated struc-
ture involving standardization,
specialists and systems of care.
Health care is also a much
more expensive matter The per-
centage of our national dollars
spent for health care is rising at
an alarming rate Technology
advances, complex rules and reg-
ulations, and more uncompen-
sated care provided are only
some of the reasons for this nse.

Carrabelle ranked


number 1
The City of Carrabelle is
proud to announce that it was
ranked number one for funding
by a panel of judges in the State
of Florida's Division of Historic
Preservation to receive a $50,000
grant.
The Carrabelle Waterfront
Partnership and the Carrabelle
Historical Society prepared the
city's application. The purpose
of the giant is to hire a profes-
sional consultant to survey all
the historical structures, homes.
cemeteries and sites within the
city limits of Carrabelle, register
those historic sites with the State
and help the City develop a plan
for historic preservation.
"This is a win-win for the
City." according to John
Mclnnis, Carrabelle City Mana-
ger. "It meets one of the require-
ments for the comprehensive
plan and one of the important
priorities for the Carrabelle
Waterfront Partnership. Our
first step is to formally identify
our historic resources with this
survey, and then we can protect
them and popularize our history.
This grant did not cost us a
penny but it will help us bring in


for grant
more tourists. Other historical
small cities like Carrabelle who
publicize their historical
resources bring tourists to town.
They can come to see the
Lighthouse, stay in an historic
Bed and Breakfast, visit the
Camp Gordon Johnson
Museum and take an historical
walking tour, eat in local restau-
rants and shop in local stores."
Due to severe budget cuts in
the Legislature this year, only a
few projects are being recom-
mended for funding. Carra-
belle's high ranking will get first
consideration. The panel of
judges stated that it was high
time for Carrabelle to recognize
and protect its historical
resources from its rich maritime
and lumbering past. They espe-
cially noted the heartfelt letters
of support from local citizens,
organizations, Florida Rep. Will
Kendrick and Sen. AL Lawson,
US Rep. Allen Boyd and Senator
Bill Nelson included in the appli-
cation. This effort is scheduled
to begin in July.

made more efficient, it is worth
doing so. Partnering with a larg-
er system can make operating
less costly by sharing diagnostic
equipment, access to large-vol-
ume buying, reduction of per-
sonnel costs, and streamlining
systems into more seamless care.
In addition, and most
importantly, more services to our
citizens can be provided and bet-
ter health outcomes achieved by
joining with a larger tertiary hos-
pital. A union brings with it the
ability for Weems to better mon-
itor its clinical quality, get access
to specialists through telemedi-
cine, gain more physicians and
services through rotation from
that hospital, add the use of
interns and residents, and
increase the knowledge and skills
of all of its staff through
increased opportunities for
enhanced medical continuing
education.
The chance to spread the
dollars further and improve and
increase the services offered to
the residents of Franklin County
in a challenging time for health
care-unlike anything in the
past-is the reason your hospital
board is very thoughtfully con-
sidering partner options. And the
board is doing this all with an
eye to the continuity of our
employees, the maintenance of
our hospital license, and the
pledges made to the citizens of
Franklin County when they
voted for the penny increase for
improved health care in the
county.

This Week's Answer

Cogno's Corner
Answer to question #152 is: True.
Every object requires energy to make it change speeds
because of a natural resistance to motion called "inertia."
This is why a pitcher can throw a softball faster than a
shot-putter can throw a heavier shot put. In space, away
from most gravity, slowing down requires as much energy
as speeding up. A more massive spaceship will always
require more energy to slow down than a less massive one.

22 reasons

the fish

aren't biting

You should'a been here yes-
terday!
That's the cry all of us who
fish have heard at one time or
another. The other day was a
prime example. Fishing buddy
John Inzetta told me he got a
limit of keeper specks in the area
behind the church just east of the
SGI bridge on the SGI bay side.
He caught the fish on a Mirro-
Lure, mullet color, and said he
caught and released fish on every
cast!
So of course your intrepid
reporter went out the next day ,
at the same time. Even called
John on the phone to make sure
I was in the right place. I was. I
hooked a nice keeper on the first
cast. It's blitz time! I thought.
Well, two hours and about 200
casts later that fish was still alone
in the cooler. "Go figure," you
say to yourself. So here are some
reasons for not catching fish,
gathered over a lifetime of
angling:
1. Water is too cold
2. Water is too warm
3. Too windy
4. Too calm
5. Tide not running fast
enough
6. Tide running too hard
7. Water is way muddy
8. Water is overly clear and
fish can see your line and get
spooked
9.No bait fish in the water
10. Tons of bait in the water
so fish won't hit your lure/bait
because they're busy eating free
bait
11. Moon is in the wrong
phase ( too full, too high, too
new, etc.)
12. Fish quit biting in the
heat of the day
13. Other fishermen are on
your spot
14. Someone brought a
banana on your boat
15. Wrong lure or bait
16. Improper presentation of
bait or lure
17. Drop in barometric pres-
sure
18. Rise in barometer
19. More rain than usual
20. Drought
21. Other fishermen have
cleaned the spot out
22. Monthly A&N train
going across the trestle while you
are fishing there.
After looking at this list it
makes one wonder how you can
ever catch a fish! That's why we
all rely on a myriad of resources
to try for a successful catch. One,
to someone with a nice catch, is
the old "Where did you catch
those?" getting the always witty
reply "in the water". "How did
you catch 'em?" answered by the
successful angler putting a finger
in his lip in imitation of a hook
in the fish's mouth.
Seriously, there are other
real ways to find hungry fish,
such as tide charts, Solunar
tables, looking for birds working
over bait, and getting good, reli-
able, semi-honest reports from
local bait and tackle shops such
as Fishermen's Choice in East-

point. But there is no substitute
for putting time in on the water.
Over the years you get to know a
number of places where you
have caught fish when condi-
tions were right. Many dedicated -
piscatorial gladiators keep a writ-
ten log of where and when, tide. .'. ,
wind, temperature conditions,
and other details for each tnp.
This can help but there as no
guarantee that the quarry will -
follow the -snpl It's a real thnll
when they do, but when they
don't either try something new
or call it a day. After a few less
than stellar trps, my respect for
professional guides soars. These
folks have to produce every time
out or business will suffer
Often you can just enjoy a '. .
trip even though fishing as tough.
If you are surf fishing there is the
beauty of the beach and the
birds. A heron may come and .
join you. Passers-by usually like '
to chat and ask about the fishing .'. -
or simply pass the time of day. In
the rivers and the bays there are
exciting things to see and hear.
Ospreys nesting and fishing; a
bald eagle soanng or perched
majestically on a high tree
branch; an occasional alligator
to watch. And if you're lucky
you may spy a sturgeon or tar- .p ;
pon leaping out of the water.-
You will frequently encounter .;
bottle-nosed dolphin feeding on
mullet. In summer bull sharks
are often present near the
mouths of the East, St. Marks,
and Little St. Marks Rivers.
Whenever you're on or near the "
water savor what's around you, ,
observe and mentally note what
you see and you will have mem-
ories for life.
According to the Solunar
tables, major feed time for
Friday, April 18, is 10:45 a.m.,
April 19 is 11:24 a.m. It's worth
a try to use these as guides. They
have often been pretty accurate.
The bite may last for one half to
one and a half hours on either ..
side of the major time.

Art project unifies stu
BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE
Chronicle Correspondent


They got their Sky Sight on!
On Thursday, April 10,
1,200 students of the Franklin
County Schools came together
for the first time to do a project
as a unified whole. Children
from kindergarten to 12th grade
came together on the athletic
field of the new consolidated
school in Eastpoint to create a
giant sky art picture of the new
Franklin County School mascot,
the Skyhawk.
The project was sponsored
by Franklin County Schools,
The ABC School, and Apalachi-
cola Riverkeeper and directed by
Daniel Dancer, Oregon concep-
tual artist. Art in the Sky is
intended not only to inspire artis-
tic creativity but also to be an all-
around educational experience
for the students and teachers. Art
for the Sky teaches about cooper-
ation, closeness with nature, and
pride in community and work-
manship. Dancer says, "Each
fleeting image (is) a metaphor
about the power of collabora-
tion, the importance of awaken-

forth Six Teachings: 1. Intention:
The starting point; formulating
what we want to create. 2. Sky-

3. Collaboration: giving all par-

Impermanence: nothing lasts;
everything is changing, and we
must appreciate each moment as

Interconnection: the realization
that we are a very small part of
something immense and beauti-
ful, everyone is of equal impor-
tance, and we are all connected
as one.
In the assemblies at which
he explained Art in the Sky to all
the students in Franklin County
schools, Dancer stressed our
connection to nature, talking
about global warming, a celebra-
tion of water and the need for us
to see our world as a whole
rather than separate, exclusive
pars. He added a second pledge
to the pledge to the flag when he
taught: "I pledge allegiance to
the Farth; and the wild web of
life upon it, one planet, in our
c.re. irreplaceable: with peace

to hear the song, it's download-
able from I-tunes. Search for
Daniel Dancer and Skysight.
Was the project a success?
Let the participants themselves
tell you:
"We enjoyed making the
Seahawk." "It was good to repre-
sent our school." "This is a great
way to show school spirit," com-
mented several West Campus
students. A West campus teacher
said, "My kindergarten kids
enjoyed it." Andrea O'Neal,
Celia Granger, Deiara Prince,
Rose Creamer, and Naikycia
Fedd, seniors at East Campus,
had many positive things to say
about the experience. They
showed their pride in the project
when they said, "We are going to
be remembered. This is the first
time we have all come together."
Naikycia, however, did say that
while they were setting up and
posing, "I kept getting hungry."
At Friday's showing and
concert, Andy Smith, Director of
the Apalachicola Riverkeeper,
called the project "a pretty amaz-
ing event" and expressed the
thought of many participants
when he said, "If we don't take
care of what we have, how can
we expect others to take care of
the world?"
Last week the students of
two communities came together
and learned the great satisfaction
of teing .able to create something
fine together. The lessons
learned from this project will
stay with most of them for their
entire lives. The Panthers have
been placed on the shelf of histo-
ry and the Sharks have found a
place on the facing shelf. The
SEAHAWKS are here to stay!

Enforcement Action
FRANKLIN COUNTY:
On April 7, Officers Travis
Huckeba and Don Walker
boarded a vessel returning to
Apalachicola from a day of reef
fishing. Upon performing a ves-
sel safety and fisheries inspec-
tion, the two officers found the
occupants of the vessel to be in
possession of red snapper during
the closed season and undersized
red snapper. Four misdemeanor
citations were issued to the occu-
pants of the vessel for the snap-
per violations and one infraction
citation was issued for a safety
equipment violation.The eight
red snapper were seized.
FRANKLIN COUNTY:
In the early morning hours of
April 8, Officers Don Walker
and Travis Huckeba executed a
vessel inspection on a vessel
returning from a night of mullet
fishing. Several hours of
patience paid off for the officers
as they found the three fisher-
men in possession of a
gill/entangling net and over 600
pounds of mullet. The nets and
fish were seized and 12 misde-
meanor citations were issued to
the fishermen.
Snapper season to reopen
The recreational red snapper
fishing season in Florida waters
in the Gulf of Mexico reopens
on April 15 and will remain open
until Nov. 1. Florida waters
extend nine nautical miles from
shore in the Gulf. While
Florida's Gulf red snapper sea-
son is opening as usual this year,
there have been some recent, sig-
nificant changes to Gulf red
snapper regulations.
The red snapper bag limit
for sport anglers in the Gulf has
been lowered from four fish daily
per person to two fish per person,
and the captain and crew of for-
hire vessels in the Gulf may not
keep the recreational bag limit.
In addition, the recreational red
snapper fishing season in Gulf
federal waters has changed and
will now open on June 1 and
close on Aug. 5. Gulf federal.
waters extend well offshore
beyond state waters. The mini-
mum harvest size for recreation-
al red snapper in the Gulf
remains unchanged at 16 inches
total length.
Mullet changes
FWC has proposed a draft
rule that would allow commer-
cial fishers to harvest striped or
black mullet on weekends. A
final public hearing on this rule
proposal will take place during
the June 11-12 FWC meeting in
Dania Beach. The commercial
harvest of mullet has been pro-
hibited on weekends during cer-
tain months of the year since
1989 to help protect mullet when
they spawn. A recent FWC
stock assessment indicates that
mullet populations are now
healthy enough statewide to safe-
ly sustain commercial mullet
harvesting on weekends.

resources to further their education, but with your help they can
achieve avenues they thought would not be possible. The proceeds
from this program will be used as follows: Project Graduation 2008

County Immediately after graduation, all seniors return to the
school gym, where they will stay until the next morning. We call it

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

women have already spread
beyond the original location of
the cancer cells. Local mam-
mography services will make it
easier for Franklin County resi-
dents to sign up for the impor-
tant diagnostic test, and if cancer
is suspected or found, treatment
can be initiated sooner.
Elaine Koslowsky, a Philaco
member, told of the tForgotten
Coast Classics project organized
to benefit local breast cancer
services. "We are soliciting
financial sponsors for the
Calendar printing of more than a
dozen beautifully artistic pictures
of local women, taken by pho-
tographer/artist Sue Bull of
Cape San Bias and Atlanta "
The Calendar idea is based
on the British film "The
Calendar Girls," but funds
raised here will provide local
education about breast cancer,
future transportation for
Franklin County women to
mammography testing at Weems
and enhanced mammography
facilties and services there.

She explained that the original

Franklin County hunds raised

awareness.
A bnef report on the New

EARTH


TALKED
Questions & Answers
About Our Environment

Dear EarthTalk:
What makes those so-called
"new urbanism" housing devel-
opments popping up around the
U.S. more environmentally
friendly than regular old subur-
ban neighborhoods?
-Rusty Spinoza, Galveston,
TX
The husband-and-wife team
of town planners Andres Duany
and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk are
typically credited as the founders
of new urbanism, a style of com-
munity design that embraces
mixed use (commercial and resi-
dential) development in pedestri-
an-friendly and green space-rich
neighborhoods-much like the
old neighborhoods many baby-
boomers remember before subur-
ban sprawl made us all slaves to
our cars.
Duany and Plater-Zyberk
formulated their new urbanism
principles while living in one of
the Victorian neighborhoods of
New Haven, Connecticut while
they attended graduate school in
architecture at Yale. Their neigh-
borhood included corer shops,
front porches and a variety of
attractive and well-designed
housing and commercial struc-
tures-planting the seed of an
idea that has now swept the U.S.
and beyond.
The prototypical new urban-
ist community is Florida's
Seaside, which Duany and
Plater-Zyberk began designing in
1979 for the 80-acre coastal par-
cel's developer, Robert S. Davis.
Their plan took the best elements
of a handful of graceful southern
cities like Key West, Charleston
and Savannah to create a com-
munity based on the tried-and-
true concept of walkable, self-
contained neighborhoods. Be-
sides 300 homes, Seaside con-
tains a school, a town hall, an
open-air market, a tennis dub, a
tented amphitheater and a post
office-everything anyone could
ever need in a town, and all with-
in a five minute walk.
According to the non-profit
Smart Communities Network,
Seaside works as a community
because of its design:
"Mandatory porches are set
close enough to walkways to
enable porch sitters and passers-
by to communicate without rais-
ing their voices.... The streets are
all interconnected; creating a
network that eliminates 'collec-
tor' routes and reduces conges-
tion. Walkways crisscross the
development to encourage walk-
ing and biking, while narrow
streets serve to reduce traffic
speed." Building fronts are a uni-
form distance from the curb and
all streets are tree-lined to further
the community's "sense of
place."

The Franklin Chronicle


Adoption from Page 1
application in May of 2005 and
got the paperwork started, what
they call the "Paper Chase" and
also a "Paper Pregnancy." This
involved doing a home study, law
enforcement background checks,
references, gathering personal
information and medical exams.
It took from May of 2005 until
October of 2005 to gather and
complete all of the required
paperwork for the dossier. The
adoption agency assigned a fam-
ily coordinator to their family
and she worked with them all the
way through.
Renee said, "We had an
excellent adoption agency! Once
our dossier was completed it was
sent to China and we were given
a log-in date once it was booked
in to the adoption affairs in
China. Our log-in date was Nov-
ember 1t, 2005, which should
have meant we would be getting
our referral sometime in May
2006. A referral is the actual pic-
ture and information about your
child. (They match you with a
child in China, you don't choose
one yourself.) Shortly after we
were logged in to Chinai the wait
time turned in to a year, which
meant we would be waiting until
the next November or so. Then
a year became 2 years and we
ended up waiting 2 years and 3
months for our referral. We got
the referral in August of 2007."
Their daughter was IS
months old at that time. They
left for China on September 13.

trip and returned on September
28, 2007. They flew in to Beling
and spent the weekend sightsec-
ing, going to Tienenmcn Square
and the Forbidden City. Summer
Palace and the Great Wall
Renee remembers, "It was a very
unique experience but it definite-
ly made us appreciate our home'
We flew from Beijing to
Changsha on a Monday morn-
ing, September 17, 2007 and had
an appointment at the Adoption
Affairs office at 3 that afternoon
to get our baby girl! There is no
way to describe the feeling of
seeing her for the first time She
cried at first but once they gave
her to me she stopped, until we
got to our hotel room. Theln she
pretty much cried most of the
rest of the time we were there.


which was another 11 days."
She was officially adopted
on September 18, 2007 and the
couple had to promise that they
would love her and never aban-
don her. "That wasn't a problem
at all," Renee said with a fond
smile.
A friend of tile Stones men-
tioned that her sister had wanted
to name a girl Piper if she had
one. As soon as Renee heard that
name she knew that would be
their baby's name and Anthony
fell the same way. With the
friend's blessing, the adopted
child was named Pipet llHelie

Outside of Chillas Hall, Harold
Arnold displayed his very large
and beautifully done wooden
animal carvings.
Not only was the crowd
entertained but they were also
well fed. Bruce Barnes, famous
for his "Barnes Burgers," cooked
up big batches of delicious ham-
burgers and hot dogs with all the
fixing's of baked beans, chips
and drinks followed by lots of
chocolate cake and cookies. No
one went hungry!
This free Lanark/Carrabelle


party was planned as a celebra-
tion of the Lanark/Carrabelle
Water & Sewer Districts' merger
and was sponsored by the
Lanark Concerned Citizens. Dot
Bless and Barbara Lasher of the
Lanark Village Association
along several helpers kept the
dinner plates full inside of
Chillas Hall while Barnes and
his cooking crew manned the
burger grill outside under
umbrellas. The rain definitely
did not dampen this funi

FSU College of Infornationl
recently donated to the Wilder-
ness Coast Libraries hundreds of
young adult and children's books
that had been reviewed fin the
Florida Book Awaids. The
Wilderness Coast then donated
those books to .lellerson, Wakul-
la, and the Franklin County
Public Liblraies. Franklin
County Public libraryy Director
Judi Rundel, has since cataloged
the books, shelved them, and
they are now ready to be checked
out. The selections come from a
wide area of literary themes,
including fantasy, multicultural
issues, family life, and just fun
reading. The library staff and
volunteers at both branches can


help you locate any of theses
new editions.
The Carrabelle and East-
point branches continue to
acquire your favorite bestselling
authors and their books. If you
don't see the book on the shelf or
on display ask a staff member to
put the book on hold and you
will be contacted as soon as it
returns to the library. Another
way to acquire a book that is not
in the library collection is to ask
for an interlibrary loan.
For information about the
library or its programs contact
Carolyn Sparks, Branch Mana-
ger in Carrabelle at 697-2366 or
Judi Rundel, Director, FC Public
Library at 670-8151.
