Colorful characters highlight festival


BY LAUREL NIL:WMAN
Chronicle Gwrt',,"...11, '
This year's version of the
Carrabelle Riverfront Festival
was a huge success despite rain
in Tallahassec that :i.n have
lowered attendance somewhat
"It was a lhugr success."
Carrabelle Chamber of Com-
merce Director Suzanne /',',
merman said Mnrili'. "The
crowd was not as huge as we had
hoped for, but there were a lot of
other events going on in the area,
and it did rain in Tallahassee. It
seems that when it rains in
Tallahassee, everyone assumes
it's raining here, too."
Of course, evcronre who
lives in Franklin County knows
that the weather g,,inl are usually
kind to us when the spring rains
come to North lhorida, sprin-
kling us lightly and then traveling
north, often bypassing us alto-
gether, which was the story for
this past weekend, sunny and
warm, with light breezes off the
river.

intersection of Marine Street and

Facility will create
70 new jobs
The new state budget
approved TuC-%day, April 29, for
litual year 2008-2009 includes
$9.56 million for construction of
a 288 bed work camp at the
Franklin Correctional Institu-
tion.
When opened, the facility
will hire 70 employees.
Rep. Will S. Kendrick (R-
Carrabelle), who is in his final
term in the Florida House of
Representatives, said that until
the last weeks of the 2008 legisla-
tive session, there was no indica-
tion or intention to have addi-
tional beds constructed at
Franklin Correctional Institute.
Due to the efforts of Rep.
Kendrick, the 288-bed work
camp will now be constructed in
Franklin County. In a year when
budget cuts have taken center
stage in all negotiations for proj-
ects and legislation, this will be a
boost to the local economy.
This appropriation will
result in approximately 70 jobs at

The employee of Peter R.

for the improper billing has been
fired, according to a statement
released by Superintendent of
School Jo Ann Gander.
About two weeks ago," the
statement said, "PRBD deter-

County School Board on the

documents proved to PRBC that
records had been lalsified and
the School Board had been over-
charged in one instance. PRBC's
internal audit confirmed an over-
charge to the school board in the
amount of $130.583 52 PRBC
reported this incident to the
Franklin County School District
and immediately repaid the uill

"People say I'm extravagant
because I want to be surrounded
by beauty. But tell me, who
wants to be surrounded by
garbage?" -Inelda Marcos
(1929-)
I don't know; maybe it's us!
In my Feb. 22 column, 1
bewailed the tact that trash and
litter spoils our enjoyment tof the
trip over the Island bridge and
poses a serious danger to birds
and aquatic life. The trash keeps
piling up; nothing changes. We
see the trash on the road and it is
unsightly but what we don't usu-
ally see is the devastation caused
by the trash in the ecosystems of
the world. It keeps adding up!
The litter blows off the bridge
and ends up in the water to do its
deadly thing on birds, turtles and
fish. In the Pacific Ocean, there's
a 10-million-square-mile oval
known as the North Pacific Sub-
tropical Gyre. It's an area that
used to be beautiful, clean ocean
covering an area 37 times the
size of Texas. As reported in Best
Lik Algaazine, a sea traveler
found the following there, "It
began with a line of plastic bags
ghosting the surface, followed by
an ugly tangle of junk..." Best
Life reported that, "It was as
though someone had taken the
pristine landscape of his youth
and swapped it for a landfill."

"I am extremely pleased at
having been successful in luring
this work camp to Franklin

Kendrick.
This means additional jobs
and an opportunity to utilize
additional work crews to assist
local government and schools

Advertising for Architectur-

afterward. The work camp
should be fully operational by
the end of 2010.
Other items that Kendrick
was able to see funded in this
year's budget were $150,000 for

junk in the water?
When will we hold the trans-
porters of trash accountable for
the trail of unsightliness and
destruction they allow to blow
from their trucks and trailers?
There are laws in Florida making
littering unlawful and punishable
by penalties ranging from a non-
criminal infraction, punishable
by a $50 tine to as high as a first-
degree misdemeanor, punishable
by up to a year in jail and a tine
of $1,(H)0. It may be time tbr us
to hold someone responsible for
his misbehavior so we can pres-
ent a more pleasant introduction
to an otherwise exceptional
place to visit.
A question was asked this
week about why the bike path
wasn't further along in its final
run to the St. George island
State Park. The St. George
Island Bike Path currently runs
all the way from the Plantation
on the West to 12th Street on the
East. The completion of Phase
Three will take it all the way to
the State Park and create a safer
path for hikers and bicyclists to
take from one end of the Island
to the other without having to
ride on heavily traveled Gulf

Weems ready to move

forward with sales tax
This week's guest column was submitted Iby rhe Geo're h'. WIeI ems iMemotrial
Boan of )Directors.
The governing body of George l.. Weems Memorial hospital
paid close attention and flashed smiles all around when County
Planner Alan Pierce announced at their Mar. 27 meeting that
Franklin County had received Januatv 2008 sales tax monies from
Florida's Department of Revenue. Pierce told the board that the one
cent sales tax collected throughout the county in January '08 was
$70,000. He also said that January traditionally is a slow month for
tax receipts and that revenue would he greater in subsequent months
Voters in November 2007 decided that an additional penny of tax
would be collected in Franklin County in 2008 for health care.
Weems has estimated that could mean 14 million dollars raised
through the tax annually. The estimate is based on the prior yeat's col-
lection of one cent of sales tax in Fianklin County according to the
Florida Department of Revenue.
The money will be used for operations and for infrastructure
improvements. According to the referendum passed, the first infra-
structure project will be the construction of an urgent care clinic in
Carrabelle. Once that is completed, monies will go towards refurbish-
ing or building a new hospital for the county in Apalachicola
With the dollars now flowing to the county, board members at
their April 24 meeting turned their attention to carrying out these
commitments. Weems CEO Chuck Colvert told members 5000
square feet of space will be needed for the new Carrabelle clinic it
will house two physician offices,examining rooms, and also will con-
tain areas for radiology and a laboratory. Colvert said the plan is to
begin with one physician, but the building must be big enough to
accommodate more rotating physicians later. He also reminded the
board that the clinic must open debt-free.
The board directed Colvert to begin talks with the county com-
mission to determine how best to proceed with construction plans.
They expressed their desire to move quickly to select a site and begin
the process of engaging an architect. Even though there is a lag time
of approximately three months between when the tax money is gen-
erated in the county and when the county actually receves it. board
members want to see if the board and county commission can find a
way to go forward as soon as possible based on the tliur rreinvuc
stream.
Board member Tammi Hardy from Carrabelle said she hoped the
board could soon "get the wheels in motion" for construction of the
clinic now that the money is coming in. "Carrabelle is anxious to see
us moving forward on the new building." she said Colv'err said the
hospital is ready to do so. "The sooner we begin the process. the sxn-
er we can open the new building." he said Pierce told the board dis
cussions are set to begin with the Franklin County School Board
about land the school board may wish to donate to the county. which
could be used for a clinic site.

Wash your hands-constantly


1 had been in the restaurant business or been
working in some type of food service for most of
my life. I have been involved in food from the field
to the dining room table; I picked it. I packed it, I
processed it. I delivered it. I prepared it, I cooked it.
I served it. I sold it you name it, I did it
But here I was at the Florida Foxd Service
Health and Sanitation Training Program The
State of Flonda and several other like-minded
states had come to the conclusion that a restaurant
was not a healthy
place to c.at prinman-
ly because of' people
like me and many
others who worked in
these unhealthy estab-
lishments Not neces-
sanly because we
were dirt.v unwhole-
some. slovenly.
derelict. illegal. dis. Te. C o1
cased. unhcal-thy or
had been living under
a bndge or sleeping in By Richard E. Noble
someone's hedges.
but because we were lacking in food handling
knowledge I for one considered this to be a definite
step in the proper direction.
There was a very nice man conducting the lec-
ture. He looked normal. He spoke ... normal. He
seemed like the kind of a person that you might
have living right next door. He was dressed nicely.
He was weanng a tie and a suit jacket. He spoke
well and had lots of funny little stones about the
restaurant business and prepanng and eating food.
But it soon became obvious that he considered a
restaurant equivalent to a toxic dumpsite. By the
time that this man had finished his lecture I real-
ized that operating "a healthy" restaurant was an
impossibility.
Raw chicken, for example, should really not be
touched. If you must touch it, it should be boiled
first. If for some insane reason, you touched a
piece of raw chicken before you boiled it, unfortu-
nately, you must now be boiled. If you do not boil
yourself within a reasonable time after touching a
piece of raw chicken, you will probably die. Even
worse than that, you may be the cause of some
innocent person's death possibly even a small
child or a dog or a cat.
Hamburger? I lamburger is a very scary materi-
al. How and why people ever started using ham-
burger as a food product is a study for historians
and anthropologists. Hamburger needs its own
building. If you make a hamburger patty and then
touch a piece of raw chicken, you could sponta-
neous combust. The man showed a slide program
of people who instantly exploded while standing in
front of a twenty thousand dollar stainless steel
sink.
Any utensils that are used in processing any
raw meat product must be destroyed after using or
sent to Nevada to be buried miles under the
ground. And the people living in Nevada must
never be told that these utensils are buried in their


state otherwise it could cause a panic.
Any and all raw meat products are extremely
dangerous but cooked meat products aren't much
better. Chicken salad, tuna salad, shrimp salad etc.
should be eaten simultaneously with their prepara-
tion--or sooner. If you must let a shrimp salad or
chicken salad sit in a refrigerator before serving-it
should be blast frozen first.
Mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and other
condiments are perfectly safe as long as they are
kept in hermetically sealed unopened containers or
air tight packaging. If for any reason you must
open any of these type containers or packages they
should be immediately discarded-or buried in
Nevada. Once again, please don't tell any of the
people in Nevada about any of this stuff.
Heating things in a restaurant is extremely
problematic. Anything heated by an open flame or
by convection or convention should reach an inter-
nal temperature of 642 degrees Fahrenheit or high-
er and then should be thrown away before serving.
If you must "hold" something that has been
heated for any length of time you should wear
heavy Teflon gloves or have an assistant do it-
preferably an illegal immigrant.
You should have no unhealthy people working
in your restaurant-that includes hunchbacks,
midgets, and the cross-eyed.
If you would like to know more about the do's
and don't of the restaurant business, you can get a
free 9,253 page booklet from the Department of
Agriculture and Consumer services. If you live in
Florida ask for Jerry. If you live anywhere else in
the United States ask for Bob-if Bob isn't there
ask for Evon.
After the instruction course ended, I had to go
to the men's room-the instructor had the same
problem and was at the bathroom door just ahead
of me.
He took a clean handkerchief out of his breast
pocket and wrapped it around the bathroom door-
knob. Upon entering the facility he went over to the
sink turned on the hot water and washed his hands.
He closed the lever that'operated the water at the
sink with his elbow. After stepping up to a urinal
and doing his business he returned to the sink once
again and repeated the original procedure. He
pressed the button on the hand dryer with his
elbow, then once again opened the door with his
handkerchief and exited the bathroom.
After listening to this man for three hours and
watching his men's room procedure, I had one
thought that wouldn't go away; how did this man
have sex?
Wow, being privy to a visual of that would be
a real study in modern day sanitation and human
ingenuity. I can only imagine--but I will try not to.

ident of Eastpointr for around 30 years. He has authored

looking around I couldn't
help but reflect back on the boats
and autollobiles of times past,
beautiful well built cratled to per-
tectionl and of course those were
the ones that seemed to take the
prize at the end of the day. tlow
ironic that all the fuss seems
focused on old technology, and
very simply well maintained and
aged boats and vehicles.
Nostalgia seems to take you
back to an era that was not just a
cookie cutter anything, no
punched out unibody mass pro-
ductions. This era caught the
eyes with simple lines, custom
trim and eye-popping detail.
The timeless classics are the ones
that stick out in our minds. It
was more about the quality than
the quantity and more about
style than simple economics of
mass production. Made in the
USA meant something, and
there was pride that shown
through like new money in wlat
was produced.
With the current trends lead-
ing to preservation, think green
and custom design. Isn't it funny
that even new technology does
not hold a candle to what we
once had? What has been lost?
Now many are trying to preserve
costs more now than it did when

Quote of the week
"Love all, trust a few. Do wrong to none." -William Shakespeare
Not at $120 yet
What to do about oil and gas prices? Last week, Rep. Nancy
Pelosi (D-Calif.) called for the Bush administration to stop tilling the
Strategic Petroleum Reserve, a move she felt would cut 5-24C oil
retail gas prices. The White louse dis-
missed the idea, with spokeswoman
DI an, t Perio noting thaIt such action
"has been inetlective." Oil prices closed
Friday at $118.52 a barrel on the New
York Mercantile Exchange. An Oil Price
Information Service survey had gas
prices at a record of $3.577 per gallon

New home sales dip 8.5%
So says the March data provided by the Commerce Department.
One effect of the slow sales: the largest inventory of unsold new
homes since 1981. That would seem to imply lower prices in coming
months. Still, the annual pace of new home sales was calculated by
the Commerce Department at 5260,t00, the slowest pace since 1991

The final number for the Reuters/University of Michigan Apnl
index of consumer confidence: 62.6. This is the lowest reading since
March 1982 and the era of "stagflation."

Answer to question #154 is: True.
In the fall of 2004, beneath surface of the Barent's Sea,
a Russian nuclear submarine launched a single missile on
a mission of peace. It launched the first solar sailing ship,
called "Cosmo 1." A solar sail is a spacecraft without an
engine-it is pushed along directly by light particles from
the Sun, reflecting off its giant mirror-like sails.

Searching

for pompano

Can anyone help me
catch a pompano?
Call me, mail me, write me
or just flag me down on the
street. I'm beginning to feel like
Captain Ahab, obsessively seek-
ing the Great Silver Fish. Heard
many reports of where, when,
and how to catch them, and I
have dutifully tracked down
every lead with a singular lack of
success. Tried NyLures with live
sand fleas, with bits of shrimp,
pompano bottom rigs and high
explosives (just kidding). I wished
the SGI beach and both the East
Pass and in and around Sikes
Cut. Alas, no pompano.
A happier result for red
snapper and gag grouper. Two
trips this past week produced
nice catches of both. I was lucky
enough to get a 14.1 red snapper,
my biggest ever. All the fish were
caught in the Franklin County
Reef area in about 60 feet of
water. This area is less than 9
miles from the nearest land and
is thus in state waters where the
2 red snapper limit applies.
Hanging over a bag of bunker
chum is definitely recommend-
ed. We were anchored over a
good piece of bottom and the
bite took off after chum was put
out. We used squid, Spanish sar-
dines, and cigar minnows
On the second trip we also
chummed up some red snapper,
grey snapper, and even caught a

also caught several good-sized
spadefish. Then out of the blue a
more than keeper-sized cobia
swam into the chum Well, we
tried several lures and baits and a
fish finally struck a rubber eel,
but it broke off. Then a school of
amber jacks arrived and we
caught and released about 10 fish

hooked on soft baits. Storm

powerful lighters, making several

and there is no closed season.
AJs will also take a live bait.
They are getting more popular as

fishing for pompano. There are
some reports of speckled trout

Home sweet home improvement


Are you an A type
personality? Is he a B
type personality?
The two of you might get
along fine, but when it comes to
redoing your home there are def-
initely some things to watch out
for. Home improvement can be
scary, stressful and even a spark
can blow a tiny disagreement
into a full-blown fight. Some-
how, the smallest discussions
over things as mundane as where
to place furniture or what color
to paint a wall can explode.
unleashing frustration, anger
and fear. It's enough to make a
gal swear off even raising the
topic in the first place.
To help save a relationship
or two, here are some ways to
prevent the two of you from
launching into full scale war
with each other when disagree-
ments start to boil up to the sur-
face:
PATIENCE: lHome impro-
vement is stressful enough as it
is. You must exercise an exces-
sive amount of patience through
each and every step of the
process. Forcing things along the
way can be extremely dangerous.
Patience and respect call for
making sure each person's ideas
get a fair hearing. You wouldn't
summarily bash someone's ideas
in a business meeting-and you
shouldn't do it in a meeting with
your mate. Set some rules of
engagement if you must; the


By Heidi Baker
and Eden Jarin

golden rule applies as much ever,
SAFETY: If the two of you
do end up having it out, take a
brief moment to look around.
Are there any safety hazards you
need to be immediately aware of
before arguing your point with
your spouse7 You may want to
win your point, but not at the
expense of losing a limb. Safety
comes first.
. HUMOR: You've heard it
before daughter is the best mcdi-
cine. Take a few moments out of
the work day to share some fun
together. Study up on a few good
jokes you can tell while working.
Find the humor in the situation
and share it with your partner
And, most importantly, learn to
laugh at yourself during the
process.
BREAKS: Tension builds
when you're tired. So, be sure
you take breaks throughout the
day. Give yourself a bit of time
to recharge to insure that your
emotions don't start calling the


shots. Dnnking water especially
during the hotter days will keep
your electrolytes balanced which
will help the emotions stay in
check.
TEAMWORK: The stress
you're going through might very
well not have to do with each
other, but simply the project at
hand. Realize that your spouse is
there to help you, not hinder the
process If your partner is doing
all he can to help, but actually IS
a hindrance, then explain nicely
that it might be better for you to
complete the project by yourself,
Don't patronize or yell at them,
simply thank them nicely and
send them on their way.
KNOW WHEN TO WALK
AWAY: There's no point in esca-
lating the argument to a level
that there's no turning back
from. Know when you're about
to say or do something you
might regret later arnd simply
walk away. Ixplain quickly to
your partIner thai it's best they
lefi you alone for a few
moments. By the way, if they
keep nagging you when you feel
this wayrun instead!
FEAR: Learn to recognize
when your spouse is acting out
of fear. Home improvement can
be scary sometimes. You're liter-
ally tearing into the walls the two
of you call home and neither of
you might feel 100% secure in
your abilities to piece it back
together. Know that if your part-
ner is expressing his or her fears,


this is normal. Reassure them
that if you work together as a
cohesive unit, you'll be able to
successfully accomplish the task
at hand.
WITNESSES: Take into
account the people that are
around you. Whether it's your
children, your neighbors'or that
friend you coaxed with beer and
pizza to come and help on her
day off. Be aware of their com-
fort level. If you find that you
and your spouse are not jelling
and just yelling, you might con-
sider going to work by yourself
in another room for awhile to let
your emotions calm down.
KNOW WHEN YOU'RE
DONE FOR THE DAY: When
we're working on home improve-
ment projects, we often lose our
sense of time. \Ve'll look down
and be surprised that six maybe
seven or even tell hours have
passed. But take stock of your-
self during the course of the day.
You want to be sure that you and
your spouse call it quits when
you feel you've given it your all
and there's nothing more you
can give both physically and
mentally. On that note, be very
careful not to bully or be bullied
by your spouse if you're feeling
tired but they wish to continue.
You might very well be at a point
in the project where it could be
potentially dangerous for you to
keep working. If they wish to
carry on, then simply let them
be.


COMMUNICATION: As
any counselor will tell you, the
key to a successful relationship is
communication. You need to
communicate with your spouse
to let them know how you're
feeling. As we mentioned above,
if you're tired, hungry, thirsty,
scared, or whatever, let your
partner know. Unless they tell
you otherwise, they are not mind
readers and you should never
treat them as such. You need to
learn to communicate your
needs, or else expect to never
have your needs met.
Home improvement should
be something the two of you will
take pride in doing. You want to
be able to show off the results of
your labor and not of your argu-
ments. So, take stock of yourself
throughout the process, know
when to walk away, and be sure
to communicate with your part-
ner as needed and you and your
home will be better for it.

Florida's freshwater fisheries vision


The future looks bright for
freshwater fisheries in Florida,
according to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
Darrell Scovell, director of
FWC's Division of Freshwater
Fisheries Management, present-
ed an optimistic vision for
Florida's freshwater fisheries to
Commissioners at the FWC's
April 2008 meeting.
"This report is the result of
an ongoing effort to reach out to
Florida's citizenry to obtain their
input on problems and solutions
and to give them a voice in man-
aging their fishery resources,"
Scovell said.
The effort began with an
online survey completed in
March 2005, to which 1,500 peo-
ple, mostly anglers, responded.
It was followed by a series of six
zone summits scattered around
the state where fisheries biolo-
gists spoke directly with con-
cerned residents about local and
statewide issues. The effort then
culminated in a roundtable meet-
ing with proactive individuals
representing various groups,
such as outdoor writers, universi-
ty professors, fishing tackle man-
ufacturers and retailers, fishing
tournament sponsors, profes-
sional fishing guides and others
who hold a stake in the future of
Florida's freshwater fisheries.
Scovell pointed out the


B Bob Wattendorf

remarkable consistency between
the biologists' findings, the sur-
veys, zone summits and round-
table group on the major prob.
lems confronting freshwater fish.
cries.
Five top issues emerged, and
strategies were developed to
address them.
1. Habitat issues-aquatic
plants, water quality and water
quantity.
Enhance interagency coordi-
nation, especially with the
Department of Environmental
Protection (the lead agency on
most of these issues) and the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
Mobilize local stakeholders
and anglers to identify issues and
participate in proactive activities.
Continue to work with
FWC's Aquatic Resource
Enhancement Section.
2. Human dimensions-
conservation stewardship, educa-


tion, outreach, recruit/retain
anglers and volunteers.
Educate youth and adults,
using best management practices
to emphasize their stewardship
role.
Reach out to the public with
c-mails, popular articles and at
major events,
Seek grants and partner
opportunities and engage the
roundtable group in these efforts.
Proactively seek and coordi-
nate volunteers.
3. Fishing accea--develop-
ing ramps and shoreline access
for powerboats, paddlers, waders
and shore or pier fishing.
Identify priority areas.
Coordinate with FWC's
Law Enforcement Boating
Access Section.
Develop and implement a
long-term maintenance pian.
4. Regulation management
-developing scientifically-sup-
ported regulations, evaluating
them, enforcing them and ensur-
ing appropriate penalties.
Work through the public-
input process.
Community focus with up-
to-date data.
5. Nonnative species-fish,
aquatic plants and wildlife intro-
duced from other parts of the
world that represent biological
pollutants.
Assist the Aquatic Species
Coordination group with screen-


ing for nonnative fishes found in
the wild or those used for aqua-
culture or sportfishing.
Participate in research and
management discussions to
focus prevention and control
efforts via risk analyses.
Assist with rapid response to
new discoveries.
Increase public awareness.
Florida remains the
"Fishing Capital of the World."
The FWC's vision is to keep it
that way by steadily working
with its constituents and other
management agencies to ensure
quality, safe and sustainable fish-
ing opportunities. Florida's
recreational fisheries provided
more days of fishing enjoyment
in 2006 than any other state in
the country (46.3 million versus
No. 2 Texas with 41.1 million
days).
So if you are ready to con-
tribute, feel free to contact the
FWC and give some input. One
way is to complete a survey (see
MyFWC.com/Fishing and
scroll down in the right column
to "Take the Survey"). Another
way to help conservation efforts
and save you money is to pur-
chase a five-year freshwater fish-
ing license. There is a special
offer going on right now where
you get free stuff in the mail
when you buy one (see
MyFWC.com/Fishing/Syr-
2008.html).


News4 0 4 FWC


On Saturday, May 17, the
Carrabelle Waterfront Partner-
ship, the FWC and several busi-
nesses will host Bear Day at
Tillie Miller Park in Carrabelle,
from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.. Bear Day
is being held in conjunction with
the dedication of Tillie Miller
Park at 1 p.m. and the Blues in
the Park music celebration at 2
p.m.
The event is planned so peo-
ple who have bear problems or
who just want to learn more
about bears and how to avoid
problems can speak to a wildlife
biologist, said Jessica Tice, an
environmental scientist with
FWC Bear Management Pro-
gram. "Biologists will discuss
methods used to reduce prob-
lems and ways to increase enjoy-
ment of local wildlife."
Tice said residents who are
having problems with bears get-
ting into their garbage may bring
their garbage cans to both events
so staff and volunteers can help
retrofit the cans to be more bear-
resistant. If a garbage container
can not be retrofitted, a limited
number of cans will be given
away to the public.
Volunteers will conduct a
bear-resistant caddy build-off
competition. Participants will be
given instructions, along with an
example, for making their own
bear-resistant container. Tice
said the caddies built in the com-
petitions will be donated to the
parks to increase recycling and
reduce trash problems from
bears in the area of Tillie Miller
Park.
Activities and crafts are
planned for kids. Kids will have
opportunities to learn how to
make a plaster cast of bear
tracks, touch a real bear hide,
play games and color pictures of
bears. Drinks and snacks will be
provided at both locations.
For more information, e-
mail Jessica Tice at jessica.

mercial crabbing detail in
Apalachicola Bay. The detail
focused on commercial blue
crabbers and their gear. Three
crabbers were checked while
actively engaged in commercial-
ly harvesting blue crabs. A total
of eight commercial crabbers'
gear was inspected as well. The
inspections yielded violations of
buoy marking requirements, trap
permit tags, biodegradable pan-
els, vessel V-number/color dis-
play and derelict traps. The crab-
bers were cited for 16 violations
and were advised to make cor-
rections to their gear.
On April 9, Officers Steven
Cook and Travis Huckeba inter-
cepted five commercial oyster
vessels that were harvesting oys-
ters from restricted waters near
Cat Point. The officers issued 11
citations to the 11 harvesters for
the violations.

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.

be beautifying our new. "Franklin County School Campus" all the
trees purchased will be planted on the school grounds for all to see
for future years to come. As an appreciation to your donations, we

cast of extras, and filmed on a
humongous set that covered
nearly 60 acres (including a

tale of opulent decadence and

Construction on Gulf County Hospital begins late April I A Tru


The architects and engineers
working on plans for the new
Sacred Heart Hospital in Port St.
Joe have addressed structural
design and site development
issues that held up the start of
construction for about 30 days.
After resolving issues that
related to the structural design
elements of the building and its
foundation, the engineers are
now finalizing revised plans to
support the building permitting
process and the initiation of con-
struction activities.
Despite the delay, Sacred
Heart health System and
G.reenhut Construction Conm-
pany have moved a construction
trailer to the site along Highway
98 and plan to begin site work by
the end of April. Substantial
completion of the $35 million
hospital is still projected for late

An initial soils engineering
report for the project indicated
the potential need for a more

over $1 million in cost overruns.
"These challenges have been
resolved with the efforts oft otl

labor and supplies exceeded the
project's construction budget.
"Because the bids were higher
than we expected, we have made
prudent modifications to the
building plans to ensure the most
efficient use of the budgeted
funds," explained Matson.
For example, one suggested
change of pliiians is to house diag-
Instic services such as m4uiimog-
raphy in an adjacent medical
ollice building lather than pay
for building space for these serv-
ices in the hospital building
itself'.

tive option lot building the hos-
pital, and it will be a convenient
option tor out future patients,"
said Pete ileckathorn, executive
vice president for Sacred Heart.

ing is still over budget even with

Dear EarthTalk:
My old computer finally bit
the dust and I am in the market
for a replacement. Are there any
particularly "green" computers
for sale these days?
- Brian Smith, Nashua, NH
Thanks in part to pressure
from non-profits like Green-
peace International-which has
published quarterly versions of
its landmark "Guide to Greener
Electronics" since 2006-com-
puter makers now understand
that consumers care about the
environmental footprints of the
products they use.
The latest version of Green-
peace's guide gives high marks to
Toshiba, Lenovo, Sony and Dell
for increasing the recyclability of
their computers and reducing
toxic components and so-called
"e-waste" (refuse from discarded
electronic devices and compo-
nents). The group also credits
Apple, HP and Fujitsu for mak-
ing strides toward greener prod-
ucts and manufacturing process-
es, but emphasizes that even
such top ranked companies have
lots of room for improvement
when it comes to the environ-
ment.
PC Magazine, the leading
computer publication for con-
sumer and business users, recent-
ly assessed dozens of personal
computers according to environ-
mental standards it developed in-
house based on energy efficien-
cy, recyclability and the toxicity
of components. The publication
also factored in various "green"
certification schemes such as the
U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency's EnergyStar program,
the European Union's Restric-
tion of Hazardous Substances
(RoHS) directive, Taiwan's
Greenmark and the computer
industry's own Electronic
Products Environmental Assess-
ment Tool (EPEAT).
The top choices for green
desktop computers, according to
PC, are Apple's Mac Mini,
Zonbu's Desktop Mini, HP
Compaq's 2710p and dc7800,
Lenovo's ThinkCentre a61e, and
Dell's OptiPlex 755. As for lap-
tops. the greenest current models
include Dell's Latitude D630,
the Everex Zonbu, Fujitsu's
LifeBook S6510, and Toshiba's
Tecra A9-S9013.
Perhaps more important
than the green-ness of your new
computer is what you do with
the old one. Stuffing it into the
trash or setting it out for curbside
pick-up may be the worst thing
you can do with an outdated
computer, as heavy metals and
other toxins inevitably get free
and get into surrounding soils
and water. If the machine still
works, donate it to a local school
that can put it to use, or to
Goodwill or the Salvation Army,
either of which can re-sell it to
help fund their programs.
Another option is to donate it to
the National Cristina Founda-
tion, which places outdated tech-
nology with needy non-profits.

Selling lemonade on a street
coIrnc is a part of Americana
that one l Cal person has taken to
a news level
According to proprietor
Janalvn Dowden. J & J's Place
near the main int section in
Carratbele is name after her and
her sister Janice "Janice has a
lemonade stand that is also at parl
of J & J's." she said
So while J.nalvn sells her
wares located at 108 S F Ave A
in C.'.tabelle. (the old Butrd.a
I Iutgstore). her sislte JJance
l'edrtck pedals lemonade in lier
bright lemnonade stand on


Highway 98. This unusual com-
bination is as unique as the two
sisters themselves.
"I work in real estate and
my broker opened a real estate
office that had all this extra
space, so I decided to turn the
extra space into a five and
dime...make Carrabelle look
alive." Janalyn said. "In just our
short time of opening it has
expanded to include furniture,
appliances, artwork, clothes, sun-
glasses and numerous other
items that people can use...more
like a small department store
rather than a five and dime." she
continued. "I am tired of
Carrabelle looking like a ghost


town."
Although they haven't put
up a sign yet, the store is easily
located where the road splits off
four ways: looking east,
Tallahassee Street is to the left;
Marine Street is to the right;
Hwy. 98 is straight ahead; and
Avenue A forks off just to the
left.
The store is open Monday
through Friday 9-5 and Saturday
10-5.
"Stop by and see Carolyn
Smith, our assistant who will
help you sift through our treas-
ures," Janalyn said.

a.m. to 4 p.m. Additionally,
there will be several Inns and
Bed and Breakfasts' open to the
public.
In the early to mid 1800's,
Apalachicola was the third
largest cotton shipping port on
the Gulf, after New Orleans and
Mobile Settled in the early days
bv northern cotton commission


merchants, this lovely, thriving
port town is now supported by
its seafood industry and tourism.
Many historic houses, inns,
churches and commercial build-
ings remain. More than 225 res-
idences were built in the 1800s
and over 100 were built between
1900 and 1910. All of these
homes are lovingly maintained
by Apalach families. "Star of
the Tour" is always Trinity
Episcopal Church. It is always
open on the day of the tour, with
hosts to guide visitors. On dis-
play, will be the 1842 silver com-
munion set, which is normally
kept in a safe, along with the
Hodges' Bible. At the outbreak
of the Civil War, members
rushed the communion silver to
Marianna, where it was sewn in
a mattress for safekeeping. The
Erben tracker organ is still in use.
The organ has been updated and
now uses electricity for the blow-
er. The "Ascension" stained
glass window, centrally located
above the altar was created in
1922 by Jacoby Art Glass Co.
Jacoby was located in St. Louis
and was one of the century's
major American stained glass
studios. A 1995 survey stated
that the window is the most artis-
tically significant window
between Pensacola and
Jacksonville. Admission on the
day of the tour is $18.

coral and other suitable materi-
als, and hand-crafted leather car-
rying cases.
Quite a few folks had their
hearts stolen on Saturday, caught
by the Franklin County Animal
Shelter's booth staffed with vol-
unteers and shamelessly tempt-
ing all lookers with a collection
of furry, soft orphans who plead-
ed with eloquent liquid eyes for
new homes. Shelter Director
Kam Marxsen said early
Saturday afternoon, "So far we
have found homes for five pup-
pies and at least four kittens, and
1 think we'll find homes for more
before we're done here today."
She was right in that assessment;
at least one of the puppies, a
boxer-lab mix who was adopted
by Michele Doner and Randy
Golightly of Tallahassee, must


have convinced her new "par-
ents" to go back and bring one of
her kennel-mates home with her.
As always there was plenty
of satisfying food available, from
the usual "fair food" of funnel
cakes, kettle corn and corn dogs,
to hearty Greek, Italian and
Polish meat kabobs, sandwiches
and sausages, to searing
Caribbean sauces and mari-
nades.
There was lots of entertain-
ment as well. Beginning with the
pet parade Saturday morning,
with pets in costume or just
showing off au natural, followed
a bit later by the "fishy fashion
show," hosted by Tamara Allen,
suitably arrayed ,as a queenly
mermaid while she introduced
the participants, ladies modeling
various "styles" in the very latest
in piscine glamour, utilizing


everything salty, from shrimping
net and oyster sacks to seashells
and beach flotsam. Tim Allen
even revived his swashbuckling
pirate image to represent the
other hall' of the human race.
Other entertainment came
from the popular "Coo-Coo the
Clown," who kept kids and
adults alike laughing with his
clever sleight of hand and broad
comedy with the assistance of
young audience members and
other bystanders.
Musical entertainment and
more comic antics was on the
venue with the "Alabama Blues
Brothers" who gave two per-
formances Saturday afternoon.
Sunday's entertainment featured
local blues/rock band
Locomotive, as well as a spirited
kayak race on the river.
