Unique calendar will raise funds for cancer services


BY MIFL KELLY
Special to 77 '. ,... .'*..
More than 12 classically
beautiful Franklin County
women have joined ig: )lit as
models for a 2(X00 fiundI r..iin
calendar to help uIppIiii breast
cancer education and services at
Weems hospital.
Their photographs were.
taken by Sue Bull, noted artist of
Cape San II.h. and Atlanta, as
her personal .l11iil'lliii' lth t he
local fund-raising effort
"The '1rg' t ciie Coast
Classics" project was created in a
rit.iinlirminiu g effort to better
enhance mir.I nal iilgIii, ni tI'I ingI
for Franklin County women.
A;il ruling to Charlotte Will-
iams, new tinlil) g', director at
Weems hospital, a nm.inmriu. gin
diagnostic machine will be deliv-
ered to Weems sometime mid-
year as the result of a grant effort
prepared by hospital administra-
tor, Chuck Colvert and his wife


I)ebbie.
Statisttis have revealed tdat
more than 4t"o of local women
who are ,h.,l1n,,'.1, with breast
cancer have already experienced
a spread of that cancer from the
.nigini.al tumor site location. That
means the diagnostic testing is
1"l'ing ,lhl 1 dJ too lIo,: for
Franklin County women who
must travel elsewhere for their
annual inatninulogram.
Two rechniclans are current-
IV in II .Illihi g to adlintlister the
ll.,i II -',I .11 I i liii so that
when the machine ai r ives,
appointments can be scheduled
more quickly to benefit county
residents. It is hoped that the
fund-raising efforts can be used
for education and awareness pro-
grams s'till'pu tlii the important
early detection through nlam

goals as a result of the new cal-
endar sales include help inI pro-
viding transportation to the hos-
pital ctiling site for local women


who are otherwise unable to get
to an -i'i'i I miiii nt without assis
stance It is hoped that comfort-
able furniture. sinocks and an
attractive waiting toom can also
be created for in uniiii'r phy
cents with the help of these
new fund-raising monies.
The idea for the fund l aiint:
calendar, which will be available
for $20 !cg.inning in mid-suim

entitled "Tlhe Calendar Girls"

Sponsors for the pi iiting

Some monies have been con-
tributed by banks, individuals
and civic clubs, but more is need-

Each sponsor who contributes
more than $100 prior to M.i\ 15,

I, /By Tom


Relay for Life in Eastpoint,

and an inhospitable welcome


Zorba speaks, "They say
that age kills the fire in a man,
that he hears death coming. He
opens the door and says, 'Come
in. Give me rest.' That is a pack
of God damn lies! I've got
enough fire in me to devour the
world. So, I fight." From: Zorba
the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis.
(1883 1957)
Assistant professor of soci-
ology at the University of
Chicago, Yang Yang, has pub-
lished good news for persons
worrying about the approach of
geezerhood. This may be the
happiest time of their lives, also
the most social. In a study pub-
lished in the April issue of the
American Soiological Review,
Yang showed evidence from a
study of 28,000 people over ai
period covering 1972 to 2004
that shows people growing in
happiness as they age. From the
age of 18 to their early 20's,
about 1/4 of the population
claimed to be "very happy." On
the other hand 1/3 of 88 year
olds said they were "very
happy." Even minorities and
poor people who had less happy
lives, started to catch up to the
more contented and satisfied as
they aged with the black popula-
tion actually surpassing white
people in happiness starting
about age 73,
Now, I'm not at all sure
what all that means soCiological-
Iv I'll leave that to the professor.
but it's not hard to tremic tmber
what held the happy hurrahs in
when I was vyounger From Io to
23 it was school, hormnones and
rules lots of rules that kept me
less than ecstatic about life After
that for about the next 20 years it
was raising the kids, pleasing the
boss and earning a living. Even
after my own kids were gone.
there was the stress of planning
the education of all those other
people's young family treasures.
There just wasn't much time to
dwell on little things like happi-
ness or contentment. Not that I
was dissatisfied with my life.


nothing could have been more
satisfying than teaching; it was
just that happiness took a lower
priority at the time. Alter "retire-
ment," however, although I'm
working as hard as ever and the
responsibilities have not dwin-
dled, just changed, the pressure
is off and I have time for friends,
new efforts, and a time that
allows me to answer sociological
questionnaires with, "very
happy."
The sociologists say that the
happiest people are the ones that
are the busiest and most social.
Rheumatism, problems with the
plumbing, and a little less friski-
ness are part of "maturity" but
they can be greatly offset by vol-
unteering to help walk the ani-
mals at the Humane Society or
helping with Meals on Wheels or
singing in the choir. You tend to
forget about yourself when
you're helping other people.
Speaking of which, the
Relay for Life, sponsored by the
American Cancer Society, was
last Friday night at Vrooman
Park in Eastpoint. After the
opening ceremony the cancer
survivors and their caregivers
walked a "Survivor's Lap" and
then the teams started their laps
to raise money for cancer
research Thecr was plenty of
food and ire.its we"re a.iilabic .11t
booths set up bv the local
Realtors, Apalachicola State
Bank, Gulf State Bank, The
United Methodist Churh,.
Philaco Women's Club, the
Franklin County Sheriffs
Department, and a booth set up
by the Scahawks.
Survivors, their c.iregivers
and family were treated to an
excellent dinner at the Eastpoint
firehouse after which many
stayed to walk laps into the
evening As the night came on.
luminaries were lined up around
the track and lit to honor and
memorialize family members
who had cancer. The band.
Accrue, played for our entertain-
ment until midnight after which


people who weren't walking at
the time watched movies on a;
screen set up on the bandstand or
just silt around and talked. Some
took cat-naps in their cars or
went home and napped for a
while before returning to walk.
Participants enjoyed the
band that donated their time for
the Relay for it'fe. A band mem-
ber said they did many Walks
throughout the year. The mem-
bers of Accrue are: Frank
Sheridan, Travis Sheridan,
Chris Crozier, and Rick Beebe.

Bed tax collections increase in 2007


If 2007 vacation rental num-
bers are any indication, tounsm
in Franklin County is rebound-
ing at a healthy rate. In 2007.
Franklin County bed tax collect
tions increased 11.27 percent
over 2006 figures. And. accord-
ing to Tourist Development
Council (TDC) officials. 2008 is
looking to be a good year also.
"Given the overall condi-
tions of a number of economic
indicators, an increase in tourism
in Franklin County of 11.27% is
a great sign," says TI)C adminis-
trator Curt Blair. "Judging from
the initial signs for 2008, we
should have a very good season
this year as well."
The bump in accommoda-
tions numbers is good news for
tourism businesses throughout
the county and especially on St.
George Island, where tourism
and real estate sales form the pri-
mary economic base.
"Our business has increased
significantly-we're up about 11
percent," says Diana Prickett,
co-owner and property manager
for St. George Island's Resort


Vacation Properties Prickett.
whose company manages appro-
ximately 400 vacation homes on
St. George Island. attributes the
increase to better media expo.
sure. "I think the word is finally
getting out and people ire learn
ing what we're about." she says.
"We get comments from people
who say thev didn't know places
like this still existed in
Florinda. "
Throughout the rest of the
county, the story is similar.
"Our occupailnc rate was
way up in 2007 over 200,." says
Bill Spohrei, owner of
Apalachicola's Coombs louse
Inn. "And the first three months
of 2008 are showing a big
increase also." Spohrer, who
along with his wife Lynn, owns
the 23 room guest house com-
plex in the heart of Apalachi-
cola's historic district, attributes
the increase in rentals to more
effective marketing efforts to the
right audience. "People who stay
at the Coombs House Inn are
people who like the idea of a
small quiet American town with


historic buildings. good food and
beautiful scenery." he says. And,
he says. the Coombs House Inn
attracts them from every corner
of the US and abroad. "We
have guests from Tennessee,
Michigan on out to Germany
and Italy.
In Carrabclle, Sandy Beach
Properties owner Paula Caru-
thers attributes some of Carra-
belle's increase to a change in
travel patterns nationwide. "I
think people might be staying
closer to home these days," she
says, noting that 2008 rental
bookings are up "tremendously."
even though they did take a dip
last fall due, she says, to the
first wave of rising fuel costs.
At a time when Franklin
County officials are considering
cuts to county services due a pro-
jected shortfall in property tax
collections, the county's bed tax
revenues have proved crucial to
the continuation of area cultural
and public infrastructure projects
which otherwise might be elimi-
nated.

Bear Education and Park
Dedication
May 17 is shaping up as a
busy day in Carrabelle; the
D)lP's Bear Education Day and
the Tl'lie Miller Park
Dedication's organizers have
conferred and decided to com-
bine the two events for a memo-
table day of family fun that
brings locus to two aspects of'
Cartabelle that are important to
all the residents, and relevant to
life in this community.
Tamara Allen, of Carrabelle
Cares, is behind the Tillie Miller
Park Dedication and celebration
of the life of Tillie Miller, the
honored Carrabelle nurse/mid-
wife who delivered so many
babies born here in the 1940s
and 50s, and for whom 'the
bridge over the Carrabelle River
was named. On Saturday, May
17, activities will commence at
about 11 a.m. at Tillie Miller
Park. The event will include par-
ticipation of the last two children
she delivered sometime in the
mid 1950's. An older Carrabelle
resident tracked the two down,
and their identity is not yet

known, but they have promised
to attend. It is known that when
the bridge was dedicated at
about the same time, a photo
was taken of all the children she
had delivered to date, about 80,-
on the steps of the old school,
which then occupied the site of
the present Gulf State Bank.
Carrabelle Cares has acqui-
red some memorabilia, including
Miss Tillie's medical bag, which
will eventually become part of a
display in her honor in the
planned Carrabelle Historical
museum.
To add to the fun and educa-
tion for the day, Jessica Tice,
with the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection's
(FDEP) Bear Education office,
will be on hand from about 11
a.m., to accept residents' trash
containers for bear-proofing
retrofits or replacements, and
plenty of information on co-
existing with the large, black,
furred fellows. Representatives of
the three major trash-haulers in
the Carrabelle area will also be
present to answer questions.
Then, at about 2 p.m., the
band "Red Hot Java" will begin
to play, food will be available,
and the park will rock!
For more information on the
Tillie Miller Dedication or relat-
ed events, call Carrabelle Cares
at 697-2141. For more informa-
tion on Bear Education, call
Jessica Tice at 850-617-6065.
Final word about the festival
This year's Riverfront
Festival features some new par-
ticipatory events for those who
like to join events, compete, and
have fun at the nsk of getting
wet.
The Carrabelle Chamber of
Commerce has announced the
Riverfront Festival First Annual
Paddling Events, which will con-
sist of a kayak race, and a cre-
ate/float a boat parade. The first
event will test the entrants' kayak
paddling and maneuvering skills,
and is open to entrants of all
ages. It's a bring-your-own-vessel
race, but a few kayaks will be
available for rental to those who
want to enter, but neglected to
bring their own kayak along. The
create/float a boat parade will
put ingenuity and craftsmanship
up next to shipwright's skills to
challenge entrants to enter a ves-
sel in the boat parade and be
judged for its creativity, seawor-
thiness, ugliness, or beauty. Take
a look at your own potential boat
parade entry; it could be a hum-
ble canoe, an aluminum flats
boat, or even a small fiberglass
runabout. The rules do stipulate
"no power" but that kind of
restriction never stopped creative

A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


The Franklin Chronicle


The results are in
More than two dozen readers took the time to respond to the
recent questionnaire in The Chlnich'. That number alone makes the
survey a success.
I've tallied the results. Without making your eyes glaze over with
too many numbers, here are the general trends:
Among local features, the highest ranking items are the regular
editorial page columns (The Fastpointer and lThe 0 :diito), the County
Commission report, Flashback and Flrom the Island. Also ranking
high are Around Carrabelle, Shorelines
and Community Calendar.
As expected, local articles consis-
tently outscore the broader interest ea-
tures. Hut among the syndicated articles
we usually publish, the most popular are
Farth l'alk and Crossword.
Features scoring poorly v are TV list-
ings and Veggie Tales
That is iltbrmnation we'll consider
T/. 44JiLtM sas The Ch.'inwclc continues to tweak its
Sbformat. This week, I've dropped Veggie
By Russell Roberts Tales. As it turns out, Veggle Tales was
mostly a plug for the talking veggies' TV
show and movie. 1 had hoped it might
be more like a cartoon, and less like an ad. I'm not quite ready to drop
the TV listings, but it's clearly something I'll look at.
It was helpful that many readers wrote notes on their surveys I'm
condensing some here, and adding some of my responses
"Enjoy historical items like the one on Dog Island."
"My husband loves the tidal charts...l like community events.
what's happening stones."
"More commentary on today's issues." (Editor's note: I agree
that's an area where we need to improve.)
"Major improvement over previous years...Ms. Beach's articles
are always informative and interesting." (Editor's note: Way to go
Harriett!)
"I enjoy and look forward to the paper. We own two lots in
Carrabelle and eventually will build a home on one.. We love
Carrabelle. The paper's new format is excellent. Very easy to read."
"I enjoy your paper so much renoy the changes you've made.
too, and how you keep the flavor of the communities you cover true
to them... My only suggestion is not to citify it,"
"I subscribed originally because of the detailed coverage of
County Commission meetings. I miss it!" (Editor's note: We've
resumed detailed coverage of County Commission meetings. We
report virtually every vote taken and every discussion held, as well as
listing the payments of every county bill.)
"I'd like to see more about the students and schools." (Editor's
note: I'd like that also, and plan to make increasing coverage of local
schools a priority before the beginning of the next school year.)
"Nobles' (The Eastpointer) articles are read with appreciation for
his view of the world." (Editor's note: Way to go, Eastponter!)
And finally, these two comments about the court report.

Looking at upside-down people


There is a new concept floating around out
there m the world of economics. It's called the
"upside-down" people.
If you went down to the new car dealership to
trade in that old clunker that you bought four years
ago and you found out that you still owe more
money on that sec-
ondhand car than the
car's Current estimat-
ed value you are
one of the upside-
down people.
If you have a
home that you have
been making pay-
ments on for the last
10 or 15 years and T7i4
you are trymg to sell
it but you have found By Richard E. Noble
out that you still owe
more on the house
than you can sell it for you are one of the "upside-
down" people.
These were the only two upside-down situa-
tions that I read about but I find that there are
many others that I have noticed myself.
For example, you decide that you want to par-
ticipate in the American dream and you open up
your own little business. You wall learn very quick-
ly that you had better have some Workman's
Compensation insurance for Billy, Bob, Susan and
Arthur, your employees, in case they get injured or
hurt on the job; you will also find that you need
accident insurance for your customers just in case
one of your customers trips over one of your
employees, sprains her ankle and damages her
expensive Oprah designer high-heels. But if you or
your mate-the owners of this business-trip over
one of your customers who then falls on top of an
employee of yours, more than likely you (or your
spouse) will be the only ones who aren't covered
because you can't afford the personal owner's cov-
erage. I don't know but, I think that is slightly
"upside-down".
Now let's say that you are a patriotic young
boy or girl and you want to do your part for your
country in this time of stress so you join a branch
of the armed services. Now I realize that the pay
and salaries for servicemen are much better than
they have ever been in the history of this country
but if you get a job working for a civilian outfit that
has now become a part of the "privatization" of
the "new war" concept; you can make considerably
more money than any soldier-possibly more than
many of the officers and maybe even more than
some of the generals. And, I have been told, it is all
tax free. Now believe me I am not aspiring or
applying for either of the above mentioned posi-
tions and I hate to sound like Andy Rooney here
but doesn't that seem somewhat "upside-down"?


Now here's another one; you decide that you
want to become a doctor A doctor has always been
a respected profession in this country. But in the
last few decades I have noticed what appears to me
to be a new class of "blue-collar" doctors. These
people went to college; they studied hard; they put
in their internship and whatever but in order to
accomplish this dream they are now nine million
dollars in debt from college loans. And not only
that, they no longer hang out their shingle or open
their practice they work as an employee for some
business school manager or economics major who
doesn't even know how to take his own blood pres-
sure. This seems rather upside down to me.
Tb continue with this college loan business, I
know young people who finally graduated from
college at an age where the young-people of my
generation would have been married for about
eleven years and had three kids. They now have a
job where they make three times the highest pay
that I have ever had in my lif. But they still can't
meet their expenses and pay off their college loans.
Some of their loans have actually increased since
they graduated from college because of accumulat-
ed interest due to unpaid principal. I have been say-
ing for years that the only hope for a young girl in
this situation is to find a doctor to marry. But she
better find an old fashioned white collar, profes-
sional doctor and not one of these blue collar doc-
tors like the ones mentioned above.
And now we come to the biggest upside-down
in Amercan history. We have something like three
million active duty soldiers. I would guess that we
have close to that number in our "privatized" mili-
tary service. We have thirty million retired military.
We have tens of millions- of workers employed in
military procurement and military defense indus-
tries here and abroad. If we add up all of our citi-
zens involved in Military in one capacity or anoth-
er, the percentage would be shocking to most
Americans.
If the concept of war would somehow disap-
pear from the human horizon tomorrow, we here in
the United States would have to continue produc-
ing and manufacturing weapons for another
decade ortwo--even if we just throw them away as
opposed to "donating" them abroad--because not
to do so would result in a massive economic
depression. The economic ship of state, along with
the Military Industrial Complex, simply can't be
stopped or turned around that quickly. That really
sounds upside down to me.

State recognizes CyberCrime awareness Riverfront from Page


Last week, I had the oppor-
tunity to participate in several
events which touched on issues
very important to me, not only as
the Attorney General, but as a
husband, a father and a grandfa-
ther.
On Tuesday, the Cabinet
passed a resolution recognizing
the third week in April as
CyberCrime Awareness Week.
One of the most significant
aspects of our efforts to educate
Floridians about CyberCrime is
our CyberSatety program, pre-
sented to middle and high school
students throughout tile state.
More than 100 members of my
staft' have taken this project on
voluntarily, and I know, through
the feedback we are receiving
from our principals, that these
programs are saving lives. I can-
not express enough my apprecia-
tion to all of my CyberSatety
volunteers.


By Florida Attorney
General Bill McCollum

Wednesday, I was joined by
the Governor to recognize law
enforcement oticers and victim
advocates who have made seav-
ing victims of citllie their top pn-
oiity. This week is National
Crime Victims' Rights Week and
the emphasis of the week is on
providing justice to crime vic-
tims and their families. This jus-


tice comes not only in the form
of court rulings and convictions
for the perpetrators of crime, but
also in the form of providing
services, care and support to
these victims and their families. I
am proud of the role the
Attorney General's Office,
through my Victim Services
division plays in this great
etfort.
Yesterday, I had the privilege
to join the Florida Coalition
Against )Domestic Violence as
we unveiled the expansion of a
lpogral designed to save the
lives of domestic violence vic-
tims. Modeled after a highly suc-
cessfiul program in Jacksonville,
the Intimate Violence Enhanced
Services Team (INVEST) pro-
gram is a cooperative communi-
ty effort that identifies victims at
high risk of becoming homicide
victims and intervenes.


Blues Brothers
Feature act The Alabama
Blues Brothers, from Huntsville,
will make a first-time Carrabelle
appearance at the Riverfront
Pavilion for two shows on
Saturday. Sunday's entertain-
ment will be local band
Locomotive.
When the Crsler Brothers
(Jamey and Justin), a.k.a. The
Alabama Blues Brothers, claim
they're the only Blues Brothers
impersonators in Alabama and,
to their knowledge, the only
impersonators nationwide who
are actual brothers, it's hard to
dispute it-especially when it's
said with a stern expression
topped with night-black Ray-
Bans.
Unlike the characters that


musicians/actors John Belushi
and Dan Aykroyd made famous
by the 1980 movie that sets the
record for most cars wrecked in
one film, the Crislers never spent
time behind bars. Justin
"Elwood" Crisler, 30, has a
degree in criminal justice and
performs the blues full time.
Jamey "Jake" Crisler, 37, is a
nurse at a hospital in North
Alabama. Once in their Blues
Brothers outfits, all that changes.
They have performed for
fund-raisers, including cam-
paigns for the national World
War II memorial, American
Cancer Society, American Red
Cross and the Children's Miracle
Network, to name a few. "When
we perform, it's a clean act that
all ages can enjoy." Justin says.
Saying that, while wearing the
suits and dark sunglasses, you
have to believe them.


Foresters endorse Don Curtis


Agn-businessman and State
House District 10 candidate Don
Curtis of Taylor County recently
received strong commitments
from organizations critical to
North Florida's economy: The
Flonda Forestry Association and
the Southeastern Wood Produc-
er's Association.
Jeff Doran, Executive Vice
President of the Flonda Forestry
Association, said, "Many of the
counties in House District 10 are
more than 75% forested and sup-
ported by a vital forest products
industry. We need policy makers
that will make it possible for
landowners to afford their taxes
and make enough money from
the land to support their families.
Don Curtis will be a lifeline for
forest growers and users. All
Floridians will benefit from
Don's commitment to sustain
our natural resource landscape.
We encourage our landowner,
logger and manufacturing mem-
bers to show their support by
participating in the upcoming
fundraisers for Don."
Curtis is President of The
Forestry Company. His firm
provides forestry services to pub-
lic and private landowners in
North Florida, including all ten
counties (including Franklin) in
House District 10. Don Curtis
stated he is running for the
Florida Legislature because he
believes that the ten counties in


House District 10 need the
strongest possible representation
in view of the unique challenges
faced by people in North
Florida. "We cannot allow the
unique heritage of Florida, our
traditional industries like agricul-
ture and forestry, and our quality
of life to be lost because of the
rapid population growth of the
rest of the state," Curtis
explained.
Randy McKenzie, logging
business owner and equipment
business owner in Lake City and
the current President of
Southeastern Wood Producers
Association, Inc. remarked,
"Loggers in our district should
strongly consider supporting Mr.
Curtis for House District 10
because he has an understanding
of our business and the issues we
face."
Curtis is also supported by
Senator Charlie Dean, Repre-
sentative Ray Sansom, the
Speaker-designate of the Florida
House, Representative Will
Kendrick, City of Perry Mayor
Emily Ketring, Malcolm Page of
the Taylor County Board of
Commissioners, and Taylor
County School Board member
Pastor Danny Lundy. Due to
Rep. Kendrick vacating the seat
because of term limits, State
House District 10 has become an
open race this year.


The Editor from Page 4
One reader urged us to
expand the court report and list
"all court hearings, arraign-
ments, violations of probation."
Another reader thanked us
to cutting back on the court
report, saying that previously
"all I saw was a police blotter."
Editor's note: I believe we've
struck a pretty good balance in
the court report now. We publish
the name, charge and outcome
of every person who is sentenced
on a felony charge. This means
we don't publish the names of
people who are not guilty of a
felony offense. I'll devote a
future column to this topic.)
I truly appreciate all of the


responses. Everyone who sent in
a survey has had two months
added to their subscription (or
will receive a free new two-
month subscription) to show my
appreciation for your participa-
tion. This will not be the last sur-
vey. I'd like to repeat this at least
once a year.
I undertook this survey to
help me assess the changes we've
made so far and get a handle on
where we need to head next.
Overwhelmingly, readers appear
to appreciate what we've done.
And while that is personally and
professionally gratifying, the
changes we've made are just the
beginning of our long-term effort
to improve.

Weekly economic update for

Quote of the week
"When a thing is done, it's done. Don't look back. Look forward
to your next objective." -Gen. Geotge C Matrshall
Crude closes at $116.59
That was where oil prices ended Friday on the New York
Mercantile Exchange, after futures grazed the $117 mark. While the
American Pettoleum Institute says that
U.S. tuel consumption dropped 1.4% in
IQ 2008 from IQ 2007, Energy
Secretary Samuel Hodman says the gov-
ernment needs a 90-day supply of oil in
its Strategic Petroleum Reserve and cu-
rently has 55-56 days worth. Gasoline
for May delivery ended the week at
$2.98 a gallon.

Peter F Crowell, CFP lar came back from a low-water mark
against the euro and had a great week
against the yen its best weekly gain ver-
sus the Japanese currency since 2004. Late Friday, the dollar was val-
ued at $1.58 per euro and at 103.74 yen, while two-year Treasury
yields hit a 2 /-month high.
Mixed inflation, production news
New Labor Department statistics show that consumer pnces rose
0.3% in March with core inflation at 0.2% (what economists expect-
ed). Inflation is at 4% over the last 12 months. But other Labor
Department data showed industrial production increasing 0.3% in
March (analysts had predicted a 0.1% dip).
ARMs reset, foreclosures rise
Last week, a RealtyTrac report showed foreclosures up 57% in
March 2008 compared to March 2007. and bank repos up 12o% from
12 months ago. Moody's Economy.com recently noted that about 8 8
million borrowers had mortgages greater than the value of their prop-
erty.

This Week's Answer

Cogno's Corner
Answer to question #159 is: False.
"Gas giant" planets are made of gas and maybe some liquid. There
is no surface to ride on, so there would be no use for snow tires ... no
use for a shovel (no solid ground) ... and a brick house would sink (no
surface for it to rest on). A yo-yo is the only choice that could possibly
work for you, because it can be used in mid-air.

TIDE CHART FOR APALACHICOLA RIVER
DAY HIGH TIDE HIGH TIDE LOW TIDE LOW TIDE


Tarpon are in the Bay! We
were fishing for Spanish macker-
el near the SGI bridge and saw a
boat with a tarpon hooked up.
As is often the case the fish
jumped 2 or 3 times and then
broke oti Soon these fish will be
in the Apalachicola River and
the mouths of the East and St.
Marks Rivers. Early, break-otl
day early, is the time to try for
the Silver Kings, as they are
called. You can try live bait (big
pinfish will work) freelined or
under a float. Use about a t foot
leader of 60-80 test fluorocarbon
and a 7/0 hook, circle or J.
Mainline should be 20 to 30
pound test. Black Bomber joint-
ed swimming plugs will also
work. When you get a taker set
the hook hard several times
because tarpon have a jaw like
concrete. As to fly fishing, try
one of the many fine guides in
our area to learn how to do it.
Robinson Brothers has several
real experts in this type of fish-
ing. I plan to book a charter since
I have never caught a tarpon on a
fly and it is one of my dreams.
There are now Spanish
mackerel in the Bay around the
bridges. They can be caught on a
silver Gotcha! Lure or a variety
of shiny silver jigs. You can also
use a float and fish a shnmp or a
Gulp about 3 or 4 feet deep.
Spanish will run from about I to
5 pounds and put up a spirited
battle on light tackle. Use a ct
inch steel leader as they have
sharp teeth. As table fare, some
think they are too "oily" or
"fishy" tasting, but if you keep

Hurricane trackers blow into town


BY PAUL PUCKETT
Chronicle Correspondent
The aviation radio speaker
crackled. "Apalachicola Base,
this is NOAA 42." "Go ahead,"
the Apalachicola Base Operator
responded. "Apalachicola Base,
NOAA 42, we're 10 miles out on
a straight-in approach to runway
13. Request info on any other
area traffic." "No other traffic
reported," the base operator
replied. "You are cleared for
landing on runway 13."
NOAA 42 came to Apalach-
icola last Thursday as part of a
Hurricane Preparedness Tour
coordinated by the U.S. Depart-
ment of Commerce National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA). Other
governmental agencies on the
tour included the National
Weather Service, Florida Divi-
sion of Emergency Manage-
ment, the Florida State Emer-
gency Response Team, Franklin
County, as well as the American
Red Cross. The Florida State
Emergency Response Team
Command Center vehicle was
also on location and open for
tours. The vehicle is equipped
primarily with satellite and com-
munication equipment for man-
aging disaster efforts. Vendors of
supplies of hurricane essentials
were also onsite at the tour, mar-
keting anything you might need
during a disaster.
NOAA 42 is one of two
Lockheed turboprop WP-3D


PHOTO BY PAUL PUCKETT


NOAA 42 flew into Apalachicola for the event.


Orion aircraft used by the US
Department of Commerce for
tracking hurricanes and gather-
ing weather data. Part of their
hurricane missions involves fly-
ing straight into the eye of the
hurricane when necessary. This
version of the Lockheed Orion
aircraft is based on the U.S. Navy
version of the P-3 Orion used for
aerial reconnaissance. The air-
craft is loaded with an array of
scientific and analysis equip-
ment, geared specifically toward


atmospheric phenomena and
conditions. Their missions are
likely to include climate, pollu-
tion, and air-chemistry research,
as well as weather related proj-
ects such as hurricanes.
These aircraft are based at
the NOAA Aircraft Operations
Center (AOC) at MacDill AFB
in Tampa. A variety of similar
aircraft operate out of Macdill
on an "around the world, around
the clock" basis. A variety of air-
craft have been used over the


years for weather and hurricane
missions. Until 1975, the
squadrons that flew these mis-
sions were known as "Hurricane
Hunters" If you are interested in
some of the history of these air-
craft and their missions,
"google" "hurricane hunters
navy."
Before arriving in Apalachi-
cola, NOAA 42 toured across
the gulf coast, beginning at
Corpus Christi, then at
Galveston and New Orleans.


These stops along the way are all
part of the Hurricane
Preparedness operation. From
Apalach, they will make one
more stop in Fort Myers,
Florida, before returning to their
base in Tampa.
The Hurricane Preparedness
presentation was open to the
general public and included local
school kids, evidenced by the
flock of yellow school busses
winding their way into the air-
port.

Florida Fish & Wildlife
Commission Updates:
Tarpon Genetic Information
Needed: Biologists at the FWC's
Fish and Wildlife Research
Institute (FWRI) and Mote
Marine Laboratory need help
from Florida anglers to collect
tarpon genetic information
The tarpon genetic recapture
study gives anglers throughout
Florida the opportunity to make
a direct contribution to advanc-
ing scientific research for one of
the state's most popular sport
fish. FWRI provides a free and
easy-to-use sampling kit to
anglers who are interested in col-
lecting DNA samples. The kit
contains an abrasive pad that
anglers can use to remove skin
cells from the outer jaw of the
tarpon. Anglers should leave the
fish in the water unless they have


a harvest or possession tag to
attach to the fish.
Biologists welcome samples
from any tarpon regardless of
size or capture location. Each
DNA sample identifies a tar-
pon's unique genetic "finger-
print." Scientists compare new
tarpon DNA samples with cata-
loged sanmp!es to determine if the
tarpon has been caught and sam-
pled previously Scientists also
use tfis information to deter-
mine nmovemienlt of tarpton in
waters off the coast of' Fli ida

prizes.
FWC proposes allowing
commercial mullet harvest on
weekends:
FWC proposed a draft lule
last week that would allow com-
mercial fishers to harvest stnpedl
or black mullet on weekends A
final public hearing on thls rule
proposal will take place at the
June 11-12 FWC meeting in
Damna Beach
The commercial harvest of
mullet has been prohibited on
weekends during certain months
of the year sinceT losi to help
project imullet hen t he spawn
A recent FWL stock a-csme'silentl
indicates that mullet popul.titolns


are now healthy enough
statewide to safely sustain com-
mercial mullet harvesting on
weekends.
Georgia and Florida ending
reciprocal license exemption for
seniors:
An agreement between
Florida and Georgia that allows
senior citizens frotni either slate
to hunt land fish in flesh water
without licenses in both states is
abotlil to end The agreement,
wlich dates back to 1981, will
end on June 30.
Georgia ofAlicials annIounced
in May 2007 that economic real-
iHies have tendered the reciprocal
agieementi no l longer feasible for
hunting, and it will come off the
books The nature of the agree-
ment requires that Flornda follow
suit The FWC voted last week
to end the reciprocal agreement
concerning freshwater fishing, as
well The agreement never has
exempted nonresident seniors
from either state from saltwater
fishing license requirements.
Senior citizens who are Florida
residents may continue to hunt
and lish in Florida without pur-
chasing a Florida license,
although the FWC encourages
tleniors to purchase licenses to
support conservation.
New Bald Eagle Manage-
ment Plan Approved:
Last week the FWC
approved a final bald eagle man-
agemnent plain reImoving the bald
eag1l froillm the imperiIled species
lIst I'he FWC had classified the
baIld Cagle is ,a the.alened species
on the state list, but the change is
consistent with the I.S Fish .and


Wildlife Service's decision to
remove the species from the fed-
eral list last August.
Robin Boughton, FWC bald
eagle managemeri plan leader
said; "Surveys found only 88
active nests in Florida when
monitoring began in 1973. In
2007, more than 1,100 active
nests were counted. That's a
liemnendous increase."
The bald eagle management
plan will serve as a conservation
blueprint to ensure the eagle con-
tinues to thrive in Florida. The
Commission also approved a
bald eagle rule and a permitting
ifamework that will continue to
protect the bald eagle in Florida.
"The goal of the plan is to
maintain a stable or increasing
bald eagle population through-
out the state in perpetuity,"
Boughton said. "To achieve this
goal, the plan calls for conserva-
tion actions, such as land man-
agement, habitat acquisition, pri-
vate land incentives, public out-
reach and the continued moni-
toring of eagle nests and territo-
ries.
In addition, the bald eagle
will remain protected by the fed-
eral Bald and Golden Eagle
Protection Act, the Migratory
Bird Treaty Act and the state
bald eagle rule proposed in the
plan.

County

Schools

win award
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
recognized Franklin County
schools on Thursday, April 10th
for involvement in DEP's award-
winning Learning in Florida's
Environment (LIFE) program.
The presentation to the Franklin
District School Board acknowl-
edged the contributions of the
local partners that helped the
LIFE program secure the 2007
Coastal America Partnership
Award.
"Franklin County was
instrumental in establishing the
first LIFE site which has led to
an expansion in several other
school districts in the state," said
Erik Lovestrand, DEP's
Apalachicola National Estuarine
Research Reserve's Education'
Coordinator. "The LIFE pro-
gram involves hands-on, in the
field science instruction for
Franklin County's 7th graders
that teaches them science
research concepts and will help
them towards becoming better
stewards of the local environ-
ment."
In November 2007, DEP's
LIFE program received a 2007
Coastal America Partnership
Award from the federal govern-
ment recognizing the partnership
between DEP and local schools
to restore, protect and educate
the public on the coastal environ-
ment. As a partner to the LIFE
program, the Franklin County
School District is a co-recipient
of the 2007 Coastal America
Partnership Award. During
Thursday's presentation, Frank-
lin County School District
Supenntendent Jo Ann Gander
will be presented with a 2007
Coastal America Partnership
plaque acknowledging the con-
tribution from teachers, school
district administrators and stu-
dents.
DEP's Apalachicola Nation-
al Estuarine Research Reserve
will host the entire seventh grade
as part of the LIFE program this
school year. Each student will
participate in a series of outdoor
environmental science labs
throughout the school year.
The Coastal America Part-
nership was established in 1992
to protect. preserve and restore,
coastal watersheds by integrating
federal actions with state and
local government and non-gov-
ernmental efforts. Federal part-
ners include the Departments of
Agriculture. Air Force, Army,
Commerce, Defense. Energy,
Housing and Urban Develop-
ment, Interior, Navy, State and
Transportation, as well as the
Environmental Protection
Agency and the Executive Office
of the President. To recognize
outstanding partnership efforts,
Coastal America created a
national awards program in
1997.
Since 2004, nearly 3,500
future scientists and stewards
have participated in the LIFE
program. The LIFE initiative
seeks to establish a series of
field-based, environmental-sci-
ence education programs around
the state. Each of the programs
is a partnership between the
DEP and a local school district.
The goal of each program is
increased student achievement
and teacher professional devel-
opment in science.

This telephone booth may be Carrabelle's most famous landmark. Back when the picture was
taken, it didn't boast the well-known phrase "world's smallest police station" that it has
today. Local people take it for granted, but it's still not unusual to see visitors stop and take
a photo of the phone booth when they come to town. This photo from the Florida

upon ecclesiastical calendars as
Ascension Day, Carrabelle's
Episcopal Church of the
Ascension will celebrate 150

day when Jesus Christ ascended
up into Heaven. It was -10 days
after his resurrection tfronm til

Sunday (in A.1, 30). If you
begin with Easter Sunday tilns

count 40 days, you end up on
Thursday, May I. The Bliblical
account of thil Ascension
appears in the book ot Acts,
chapter one; wherein Jc.sus was
taken bodily into H1 even in tifont
of his astounded Apostles, after
having spent the 40 days since
His resurrection with them,
preparing them for their tasks of
ministry that He gave them.The !

TALKS
Questions & Answers
About Our Environment

Dear IarthTalk:
It is true that the carcasses of
whales that wash up on shore are
considered dangerous to humans
because of the amount of toxins
and chemicals in their blubber?
Michael O'Loughlin, Tigard,
OR
Whether wildlife officials in
a given region consider a dead
beached whale a biohazard or
not is local decision, but never-
theless experts agree that only
trained professionals should go
anywhere near a dead wild ani-
mal to prevent the spread of bac-
terial infection alone, no matter
whether any industrial pollutants
might be oozing out. But regard-
less, it is true that some types of
whales, given their spot at the
top of the marine food chain, do
harbor chemical pollution in
their fatty tissue and organs.
Researchers have found, for
instance, that PCBs, dangerous
toxins notorious for polluting
New York's Hudson River and
long banned in the U.S. are pres-
ent in the blubber of beluga and
orca whales, among others, in
amounts--some 80 parts per
million-that could kill a person.
DDT, a pesticide banned in 1972
in the U.S. for wreaking havoc on
bird and other wildlife popula-
tions, also still shows up in meas-
urable amounts in whale blubber
around the world.
Beyond such well-known
pollutants, newer ones are start-
ing to show up in large amounts
in the carcasses of beached
whales and other top marine
predators. Today biologists are
most worried about the marked
increase in flame retardants
(PBDEs) and stain repellents
(PFOS) in dead marine mam-
mals. Flame retardants are par-
ticularly troublesome because
.they "seem to travel over long
distances in the atmosphere, and
some studies have shown that
they can be toxic to the immune
system and can affect neurobe-
havioral development," accord-
ing to a recent report by th~
Arctic Council, a multilateral
international body in charge of
overseeing Arctic law and devel-
opment. The report also noted
that PFOS does "not seem to
break down under any circum-
stances," meaning it is passed up
the food chain to whales and
other top predators, and then in
some cases consumed by
humans, especially indigenous
Arctic people still hunting
marine animals as part of their
subsistent lifestyles.
According to the Humane
Society of the U.S. (HSUS),
whales aren't the only wild ani-
mals carrying around large
amounts of toxic chemicals.
Bottlenose dolphins, manatees,
polar bears, seals, sea lions and
other marine wildlife also have
PCBs, DDT, PBDEs, PFOS and
the other pollutants in their tis-
sues and bloodstreams.
