Interpretations of the work vary
widely. Some say the troops have
the "thousand yard stare" of
combat soldiers. Others say the
troops are on patrol and begin
looking for their own names as
they come upon the Memorial.

On Saturday, May 10, the
Cariabelle United Methodist
Church held a ;tanding-ioon
onl\ service to honor the memo-
ry of former Mayor Charles A.
Millender, Sr., who passed away

Talk to My Father for You".
Cheryl Glass said, "Daddy had

aigo; she has such a lovely voice,
and he loved to hear her sing in
church."

The Franklin Chronicle


The American poet and
humorist Strickland Gillilan
(1869-1954), wrote of mothers,
"You may have tangible wealth
untold; Caskets of jewels and
coffers of gold. Richer that 1 you
can never be I had a mother
who read to me."
I realize Mother's Day was
last Sunday but as the week
unfolded and the day grew clos-
er, I began to notice something
that we seem to pretty much take
for granted these days; newspa-
per, radio, and TV ads were beat-
ing on my door trying to sell me
things to prove to my mother
that I love her and I felt terribly
insulted! Surely if Mom were
still living, I could find a lot bet-
ter way of letting her know my
appreciation than with a $40 box
of candy or a $450 flat screen TV
(whose day?) or a $3 Hallmark
card from the drugstore, couldn't
I? Anna Jarvis (1864-1948), who
conceived the idea of a day to
honor mothers 100 years ago,
later was horrified at the com-
mercialization of the day she
envisioned as a holy day honor-
ing mothers, to be celebrated on
Sunday so churches could partic-
ipate. By the way, the reason for
the carnations is that they were
her mother's favorite flower.
Among other things. Jarvis said.
"A printed card means nothing
except that you are too lazy to
write to the woman who has
done more for you than anyone
in the world "
So how should we honor
and show our love for this amayi
Ing woman who has done so
much for us' Holw about a hug


and an "1 love you, Mom," not
just on Mother's day, but often
all year long. Or, how about writ-
ing a letter once ai week or so. A
year's weekly postage is only a
bit more than half the cost of
that box of candy and lasts about
51 weeks longer. If you're still at
home, how about after those
inevitable battles, going up to
Mom and saying, "Mom, I'n
sorry I lost my temper. I really do
love you; you're my Mom."
That's enough; you get the idea.
You're smart enough to figure it
out tromn there. There is more
love in one hug from a loving
child than in all the hallmark
cards or boxes of candy ever
sold.
Cinco de Mayo
Last week we reported on
the Cinco de Mayo celebration

Do you fish? Get these 3 tools


Some saltwater anglers are
punsts --they would fish with the
simplest rod and reel. Others
won't leave dock without gear
sophisticated enough for military
operations.
No matter what their incli-
nation, as of June 1 many
anglers will have to add three
tools to their tackle boxes. New
state and federal regulations will
require fishermen angling for
reef species in the Gulf of
Mexico to carry circle hooks
when fishing with natural bait, a
dehooking device and a venting
tool.
With the rule change fast
approaching. Florida Sea Grant,
in affiliation with the University
of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agrcultural Sciences. aims
to quickly help bring fishermen
up to speed
Along with developing Web
sites and brochures. Sea Griant
will host workshops across the
state along with the Floid.i Fish
and Wildlife Conset valton
Commission
"Florida is the number one
fishing destination in America,,"
said Chuck Adams, IFAS miiine
economics specialist for Sea
Grant. "But history has shown
us that we have to work to keep
it that way."
Saltwater angling is an $8
billion industry for the Sunshine
State, but the millions who cast
lines can contribute to ovcrfish-
ing. As a result, the types, sizes
and numbers of fish that can be
caught have become tightly regu-
lated, leading to a rise in popu-
larity of catch-,and-relnase prac-


tices.
"It's worked to a degree."
Adams said. "It's not a stopping
point, though There are more
anglers every year, and the fish
don't get any better at not bit-
ing.
The three new tools are
designed to improve a fish's
chance of surviving once
released The most tried and true
are circle hooks, used with live or
cut bait.
Shaped like a capital "G"
instead of the conventional j
shape, the rounded hook with its
inwardly angled point is
designed to slip out of a fish's
throat or stomach, but easily
catch on the fish's lip.
The benefits to the fish are
obvious, but the circle hooks
have their own pluses for anglers
.J-hooks nmusl be "set" 'v ,a

contil.st. cidce hooks I(l\y on .1
smooth motion that allows ithe
hook to set on its own.
Once the fish is reeled in, the
next tool comes iio play.
A dehooker is a1 straight
piece of wice with a1 curve or
loop at the end. It's used to dis-
lodge the hook from the fish's
mouth without removing the fish
from the w.iter.
"The less you handle the fish
out of the water, the better its
chances are going to be," siy's
Bryan Fluech. Collier County
Sea Girant m marine agent.
Keeping the fish out of water
deprives it of oxygen, and han-


dling its skin or scales removes a
protective layer of mucous.
But taking the fish out of
water can sometimes be the best
way to save it. Often, when fish
are caught in deep water, the
pressure change while being rap-
idly drawn to the surface can
cause an intenor organ called a
swim bladder to expand or rup-
ture.
When that happens, the
escaped gas gets trapped in the
fish's body cavity and exerts
pressure on its internal organs.
Releasing a fish in this condition
renders it unable to return to its
home depth and exposes it to
predators.
However, a properly trained
angler can help the fish survive
using a venting tool.
A preferred variety of the
tool. developed bv IFAS and the
Mote Miaine Laboratory, is

peclotal fin at a1 45-degicee ingle.
and waits foi the delating-bal-
loon sound to stop.
Aflte venting, the fish can
hide f' om predators and make a
speedy recovery.
"Individually, fish are a lot
more resilient than we give them
credit fir," Adams said. "This is
.1 good thing because, collec-
tively, people can be a lot more
damaging than we like to think."
State wildlife officials say
they will give anglers time to
adjust to the new rules belbre
aggressively enforcing them.

As fuel prices risc on an

In Carrabelle, more and
more people are choosing to
walk a few blocks to the grocery

to use even a small amount of
gasoline for such routines.

New subscription rates
The Franklin Chrnicle is instituting new subscription rates this
week to better reflect the cost of mailing.
And guess what? Unlike the price of gas, milk and just about
everything else, the cost of an annual subscription to The Fkanklin
Chmnicle is going to DECREASE for most of our readers.
That's because last week, the U.S. Postal Service let us know that
our application to mail at periodical rates has been approved. Under
a formula that's way too complicated for me to explain (much less
understand), this means that the cost of mailing The Chronicle will be
determined by where you live. It will
cost more to mail a newspaper to a sub-
scriber in California than it will to mail
a copy to Georgia. And it will cost more
to mail a copy to a reader in Georgia
than it will to a reader in Tallahassee.
And it will cost.more to mail a copy to a
reader in Tallahassee than to a reader in
Carrabelle. You get the idea-the closer
the reader, the less it costs.
That's why, beginning this week, we
T1 4 &449 have three tiers of mail subscription
rates: $20 to mail within Franklin
By Russell Roberts County, $25 to mail to other counties in
Florida, and $30 to mail anywhere out-
side of Florida. That should better

An FYI
The Franklin Chronicle's old e-mail address. hoffer53 lta.gcom.net,
has been dosed. Since late last year, I've been letting people get used

Also, our correct telephone number is 670-4377. The old number,
670-1687, has been disconnected. If you call the old number, a
recording will give you the correct number. Also, we print the correct
number in the newspaper every week.
Random thoughts
This week in Tallahassee, a bobcat was killed by Game
Commission officers so it could be tested for rabies after it attacked a
woman and a dog in a park. The newspaper quoted a witness as say-
ing it was a shame the bobcat was killed. After all, she said, "we're
the ones that invaded their habitat."
OK, I get the point, but isn't that a bit silly? We invaded their
habitat? It's not uncommon to hear such rubbish after animal/human
encounters. It kind of makes sense when the attack happens in the
sea. After all, humans don't have fins. The water isn't our natural
habitat. But there's no logic to that reaction when a bobcat comes out
of the woods and attacks someone in a park. "Their habitat?" Just
exactly where is humans' habitat? Should we all stay indoors?

Oh, how she
The other morning on the TV they had a spe-
cial program dealing with the tragedy and heart-
break and personal loss of losing a dearly loved
spouse after many years of faithful marriage. It
seems that many a spouse actually devolves into a
state of depression.
They often lose their
personal commitment
to life. Some become
so tragically morose,
that they make them-
selves sick and often
die not too long after
their long tune com-
panion has passed.
This made me Tie*
think about my per .
sonal situation. My By Richrd E. Noble
wife andhave beenByE.
together now for over
thirty years. We are exactly like the type of people
being discussed in that study. We have been
through the bad and the even worse; we have done
with little and totally without; we have never been
richer but we have often been poorer and we're still
here-together, till death do us part.
The more I thought about that study the worse
I felt. I could not stop thinking how terrible it is
obviously going to be for my poor wife when I am
no longer here. Oh my, how she is going to miss me
when I'm gone. It makes me sick at heart to even
think about it. I don't really know how she will be
able to cope.
I can imagine her waking up at three o'clock in
the morning because the automatic yard light went
on-and it will actually be the yard light and not
me looking for a book to read in the bedroom
because I can't sleep.
Then the morning sun will finally be on the
horizon. She will step into the living room to turn
on the TV and she will not have tripped over a pair
of my sneakers and dirty socks that would be in
front of my big easy chair. She will sigh and mum-
ble to herself, "I guess he is really gone."
She will go to the sink to get coffee water and
there will be no cereal bowl with dried-on milk
from my late night snack sitting there staring up at
her. A small tear will drop from the corner of her
eye.
When she goes to do the laundry there will be
no wet, smelly towel sitting in the bottom of the
bucket. Never again when she's cleaning up the
yard or mowing the lawn will she be able to look
over at the porch and see me there drinking a beer
and reading my book. Who will she find to hold


Nill miss me!
the other end of that 2x4 she needs to cut? I'm sure
her heart will sink-if not break.
When she is talking with one of her sisters or a
friend on the phone she will no longer be able to
say, "Well, of course Richard doesn't agree with
this but ..." When a battery dock or smoke detec-
tor stops or anything breaks or there is a new ding
on the car door, there will be no Richard to accuse,
it will have to be all her fault. This alone could
make life very difficult for my poor beloved. She
may not want to go on. (Excuse me while I blow
my nose-this is really beginning to get to me.)
How horrible this is all going to be for her.
When she wants to buy something at a depart-
ment store she will just buy it and there will be no
one there frowning and making her feel guilty for
doing so. The checkbook will always be balanced
and there will be no un-entered or misdated checks.
There will be no one to tell her that her moth-
er didn't really know what the heck she was talking
about, or that her father had a legitimate right to
get drunk every now and then-as does her hus-
band.
When I'm gone, life is truly going to be a sad
experience for my poor darting. This is very sad. I
have always told my wife that I was put here for her
by God, so that she could stop thinking about her-
self. The burden of her happiness has been my bur-
den and my goal in life.
Now what will she find that could ever replace
me? Is there anything that could really replace me?
I think that all of you out there know the answer to
that question as well as I do.
She will be a ship without a sail or a rudder.
She will be a soul lost in the darkness. Just thinking
about how she will miss me when I'm gone is
almost enough to make me weep. Her life will be
like a Greek tragedy. When I am gone she will be
so alone. She will be in such misery. She will have
only her own thoughts to frustrate her. It will be so
sad.
And there I'll be-up in heaven-counting my
blessings and reaping my reward. Don't worry
sweetheart, I'll put in a good word for you with
"the Man" upstairs.

Tips for hurricane

season and claims


BY DENISE BUTTER
(c'o'k lfst th'' ,C lt A'n't'v
HI hurricane season begins
soon and otur anxiety heightens
as storms crop up in the waters
around us. Much will be written
about getting prepared with ade-
quate emergency supplies as well
as evacuation routes. There will
be a line or two written about
"gathering up your important
papers.
In the event of a catastro-
phe, there will be many claims,
some more severe than others,
but all prioritized by the persons
inconvenienced or truly devastat-
ed. Patience will be a virtue in
short supply. Until you need to
make a claim, you may not real-
ize how important your assis-
tance will be to your agent and to
the adjustor and to the eventual
resolution of your claim.
I offer these tips.
Review your policies,
including deductibles. If you
have policies that come due dur-
ing the season, it is critical that
they be paid on time. Ask your
agent to review your coverages
with you. Loss of Use and Fair
Rental Value have very specific
guidelines. Make no assump-
tions. Whether a wind loss has a
hurricane deductible or "other
wind" deductible is in statute
and not a point to argue.
Review the mortgagee infor-
mation. Checks are paid to you
and the bank that owns your
mortgage. Let your agent know
if any change has been made or
loan number revised.
Keep your policy informa-
tion accessible although your
agent will be able to access infor-
mation as well.
Ask your agent what the dis-
aster contingency plans are for
the agency. Are records stored
off site though an agency man-
agement system? Are they part
of the agency Buddy Program
promoted by the Florida
Association of Insurance
Agents? This is a partnership
with Florida agencies to help fel-
low agents when possible.
Take photos of valuables
and your property. Dated/time
photos are valuable as are
receipts.
Do everything you can to
protect your home, autos and
valuables. If you evacuate, take
what you can with you. Nothing
replaces personal responsibility.
Take photos after the loss. If


vo il don hiavea ,t digital t'.i m tine
yIV sonum disposables lust for the
purpose of taking photos "aicti
the fact."
Make sure your home
address is visible before and after
a storm.
When a claim occurs you
can contact your agent or go
directly to the company. They
will give you a claim number and
tell you when an adjustor will be
out to review your loss.
Depending on the severity and
how widespread the loss is, this
could be several days.
Do everything you can to
mitigate any further loss: tarps,
boards, etc. Take photos of
everything even piles of
destroyed items to show the
adjustor.
Save all of your expense
receipts associated with protect-
ing your property after a storm.
You will be asked to get esti-
mates for repair. You might want
to have some phone numbers
lined up from local contractors
and repairmen. There are many
licensed, insured and reputable
ones in our area.
Your agents' responsibility as
to file your claim and to assist
you with the adjustor, if neces-
sary. He/She will not make the
decision as to value of property
loss or as to whether the claim is
"wind or wave." The adjustor
typically does not hav. contact
with the agent unless they can-
not locate the property or need
contact information. They will
deal with the insured directly.
While your loss may be of
great inconvenience or hardship
it is well to be mindful that there
may be others more in distress
than you ar Representatives
from the companies often come
to the assistance of the local
agents who are dealing with anx-
ious customers while they them-
selves may have had devastating
loss to the agency property as
well as personal concerns. This
on site assistance is a tremen-
dous help to all concerned,
Again, nothing replaces per-
sonal responsibility for our own
lives and those of others, espe-
cially those unable to do so, our
pets and our belongings. I
believe that we show the better
sides of our humanity when
faced with a common peril. God
Bless us all during the months
and years ahead.


What the 'shell' is going on?

the bay. T''h I:'SWA is aware of
it, and also objected to it being
put itI the bay,
However the Florida t)e-
parltment of Atluacultute part
of the state Depaltment of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services -has approved this par-
ticular product as cultch materi-
al. While there has been quite a
stir created by the FCSWA once
again, objections were raised at
the Task Force and the
FDOACS but the FCSWA objec-
tions fell on deaf ears.
A meeting with FDOACS
officials proved less than assur-
ing to President John Richards
as he stated his opinion that the
product could in fact harm the
bay. While experts tried to
assure the "limestone" or "fossil
shell" was not harmful to the bay
and not the same kind of lime
that has been prohibited for use
in country clubs and golf courses
as well as all major develop-
ments along the coastline, the
fact remains that the quantity of
this product has never been used
in a productive bay of this nature
before What part of lime in
limestone is not understood?
Nine-hundred tons of this prod-
uct will be distrbuted on Grady
Lcavens leases.
Assurances by the FDOACS
that this material will not harm
the bay does little for the men
and women who work the bay
on a daily basis, and the lack of
consideration to those objections
does even less. There are also
some very strong feelings about
the grant monies appropriated


T4 cdl I4r4'

this product and paying the
FDOACS to distribute the prod-
uct.
Much attention has been
focused around the policies and
the interaction. While FDOACS
is for the most part, supposed to
be fair and unbiased in all mat-
ters, there seems to be little that
is unapproachable from the
broader spectrum of some of the
dealers and processors of the
area. On the other hand the
FCSWA has had little success
asking for the departments help
on the issues of monopolizing
markets, price reductions and
equal compensation to workers
as afforded to dealers/proces-
sors.
In the past week it should
have become apparent that the
"poor old seafood workers" have
had enough. We are tired of
being used for others to make a
profit at our expense. While oth-
ers have reaped the benefits on
behalf of the "industry," the
actuality is that the workers
themselves are the ones who
have the most to lose and have
lost the most and yet still struggle
just to make a living the way they


have foir generations.
The ICSWA and the ones
we represent are not asking for a
hand out, but a hand up and to
be recognized for whom they
represent, and what they repre-
sent. Our mission is: "To pro-
tect, preserve and promote the
bay, the worker, and the industry
with the culture, heritage and tra-
ditions this community was
based around." Even the con-
cept itself, which is in the mis-
sion statement of the FCSWA,
has been mimicked by others
and yet the FCSWA is still the
only one holding true to its mis-
sion.
Especially now with so
much focus on "think green, pre-
serve history, preserve nature,"
what could be more in line than
the one sustaining industry
Apalachicola Bay has always
provided? What part of the gov-
ernors memo did the depart-
ments not get "think green"? It
does not take a scientist to real-
ize the natural shell which comes
from the bay (which is called
green shell) is still the best cultch
material there is; no one does it
better than mother nature her-
self.
However the natural shell is
being sold by the tons, and at a
hefty profit, so apparently greed
is more important than making
certain without a shadow of
doubt or room for error that
Apalachicola Bay and the
seafood industry has the best,
opportunity to sustain itself
That's what the "shell" is
going on!

It's time for Iraqis


When the war in Iraq was
first proposed by the Bush
Administration nearly six years
ago, those affiliated with the
Administration and the Defense
Department, including President
Bush, former Defense Secretary
Donald Rumsfeld, and former
Deputy Secretary of Defense
Paul Wolfowitz, emphasized
that the Iraqis had the means to
finance the reconstruction of
their own country. More recent-
ly, at a speech in June of 2005,
President Bush said, "As the
Iraqis stand up, we will stand
down."
After five years and over half

clear to me that doing so should
be a source of pride for the
Iraqis, and it should be a point of

Recently, I renewed efforts
that would require the Iraqi gov-
ernment to take more responsi-
bility for its security and recon-
struction costs by introducing
the Iraq Shared Investment Act.
This legislation calls on the Iraqi
government to utilize its expect-
ed $12 billion budget surplus and

Student leaders visit the Capitol


Recently a group of Frank-
lin County Student Government
officers from the East Campus in
Carrabelle, along with Barbara
Lee, sponsor, visited the Capitol
to get a glimpse of the govern-
mental process.
The students met with Rep.
Will Kendrick (R-Carrabelle)
and presented him and discussed
issues and concerns with educa-
tion and the impacts of this
Legislative Session on the
upcoming year.
Rep. Kendrick was pleased
to see the excitement when they
learned they were to be recog-
nized in the Gallery from the
floor of the House Chamber.
Later he met with the students in

Weekly economic update for
the week of May 12, 2008


Quote of the week
"In many cases, the more you try to compete, the less competi-
tive you actually are." -Kathy Sierra
How high can oil go?
Crude prices climbed above $126 per barrel on Friday, marking
an advance of nearly $10 on the week. Retail gasoline prices averaged
S$367 a gallon on Friday. Tuesday,
Goldman Sachs analyst Arjun N. Murti
spurred price gains with his view that oil
prices may reach $150-200 per barrel by
2010. Signals that the European Central
Bank will hold interest rates steady also
kept prices high last week, boosting the
euro versus the dollar.
Deal on housing rescue plan?
r. Ut Ti The White House may seek a com-
promise on the housing relief bill con-
Sponsored by ceived by Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.),
Peter F Crowell, CFP approved in the House but not yet in the
Senate. The Bush administration had
stated it would veto the bill; it favors its proposed regulatory overhaul
of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and higher limits for FHA-insured
mortgages, but it does not think taxpayers should bear costs of up to
$2.7 billion to support the program.
Trade deficit shrinks
Americans bought fewer imports in March than they had in six
years, the Commerce Department reported Friday, The trade gap
shrank to $58.2 billion, below the $61 billion median forecast of 71
economists polled by Bloomberg News.
Fed sees less emergency borrowing
On Thursday, the Federal Reserve released a report noting that
Wall Street investment firms had averaged $16.5 billion in daily bor-
rowing from the Fed's new emergency lending program during the
past week, as opposed to $18.6 billion the week before.
Winning streak ends
Thoughts that the commodities rally might cool acted to cool
down the markets. The S&P 500 declined 1.8% for the week.

Ths Week's Answer

Cogno's Corner
Answer to question #165 is: False.
All life requires some form of energy. The most available source of
energy is often light energy. However, when little or no light energy is
available, some forms of life are able to live on energy they create by
breaking apart molecules. This is called "chemical energy."

Planning

a fishing

adventure

I've been thinking about
how to plan for a fishing trip.
Some friends are coming this
week from Kentucky and Perry,
Florida, with a boat and the
game plan for the expedition is
being formulated as this is being
written.
Major bite time is 7:43 a.m.
so a very early start is in order.
We have to get our red snapper
in state waters which basically
means Franklin County reef. We
have to finish up there if we want
to keep any red snapper. We will
probably start around the C-
Tower (about 15 miles out from
Sikes Cut). There some good
spots for getting live bait around
the tower.
If you go, keep well off the
tower-200 to 300 yards-other-
wise you will get into bigger fish
which will tear up your Sabiki
rigs. While at the tower, we'll
anchor up so we can fish toward
it and hang over a chum bag.
With the water temperatures
well into the 70s there should be
a good shot at a cobia. Also king
mackerel are just showing up so
a flat line with wire leader batted
with a cigar minnow or live bait
will be put out. We may also do
some trolling.
Then we'll head toward the
Franklin County reef or try for
grouper on some live bottom
areas. Grey, or mangrove, snap-

per will be a target if we can get
them up in the chum.
I like to be ready for all pos-
sibilities so squid and cigar min-
nows as well as live bait, jigs, and
trolling lures will be on hand.
Lately live bait on the bottom
has been working for grouper.
Flat lining on the chum slick
should be the ticket for larger red
snapper and greys up to ten
pounds. With any luck and our
planning and if the fish gods
smile on us, we'll wind up with a
decent catch.
If you're planning to fish
inshore, redfish are in the
Apalach on up to the Jackson
River. The other day Charles
Pennycuff, of Fishermen's
Choice Bait and Tackle Shop in


Eastpoint. fished with me It was
too windy for the Bay so we went
to a place on the Jackson River
where I've been catching some
fish. The first 6 fish were caught
by this reporter and Charles,
who is the Dean of Eastpoint
Anglers, was a mile off his usual
excellent game. We moved to a
new spot and Charles came bat-
tling back He got some nice 14
to 18 inch hybnd stripers and the
biggest fish of the day, a 7 pound
shepshead' Just before we quit
for the day he hooked a hybnd to
tie the score with two out in the
bottom of the ninth to stretch a
baseball.analogy somewhat. It's
always great fun to fish with
Charles because he obviously
loves to catch fish, has a good

Still no pompano for me and
precious few for other fishermen,
I've been informed. Will keep
trying for a week or so more but
then I'll shift over to speckled

White Trash Bash: Bring a designated driver to


the annual Dog Island event to operate the boat!


BY LAUREL NEWMAN
Chronicle Correspondent
The annual Memorial Day
weekend gathering of boats.
both power and sail, is set for
Sunday, May 25, and area boat-
ing fans are already making
plans. The big party event, in
recent years, has been held in the
anchorage in Shipping Cove on
the bay side of Dog Island, and
has been attracting more boats
every year.
In past years, some Carra-
belle residents recall. It was a
rather sedate get-together for
boating friends and families to
meet and raft up for a day (o vis-
iting, picnics, water sports and a
little fishing at one or the other
end of the island. (Memories dif-
fer between West end and East.)
Gaye Lass said, "A group of
us from the ABYC (Apalachi-
cola Bay Yacht Club) used to get
together and sail, or power
down, and spend the day just
having fun. At one time, there
was a guy who brought a barge
out and anchored it, and we
would use it for a dance floor."
Not all memories are so
rose-hued, however. One Carra-
belle fisherman, when he heard
that version, snorted with laugh-
ter. "It's always been a big
drinking' party," he said, "Long as
I remember, whole boatloads of

people would go out there with
cases of beer, coolers full of ice,
bottles and mixers, raft up
together, and party on the boats,
crossing the decks to visit, play-
ing music 'til the sun went down.
Had to go to at least one every
year, for one reason or another."
In recent years, with new


regulations limiting the use of
alcohol on boats, the marine offi-
cers of the FWC(Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission) have been empha-
sizing all aspects of safe boating,
and enforcing those regulations,
whose penalties are similar to
operating a motor vehicle while


intoxicated.
FWC Officer Michael Slotin
said Monday, "There will be a
lot of people out there that week-
end, so we will probably have an-
increased presence there, and be
performing safety checks. We
really want everyone who goes
out on a boat to enjoy them-

selves, and come home with
nothing worse than a sunburn or
an empty catchwell to spoil their
day."
Safety rules to keep in mind
are life vests for everyone
aboard, a working radio, lights,
fire extinguishers and flare kit on
board. Have a designated opera-
tor if consuming alcohol is on
the day's agenda. Many boating
accidents are the result of an
impaired operator, and many
tragic injuries and/or deaths
may have been avoided without
the influence of alcohol.
So go have fun, stay safe,
and leave the booze at home if
you are going to be responsible
for getting your boat and passen-
gers out and back safely!

tions, visit myFWC.com.

Panacea free Kids' Fishing Clinic set for May 31


Teaching children a lifelong
hobby, instilling an appreciation
for our marine environment, and
providing a fun, family outing
are the objectives for the Panacea
Kids' Fishing Clinic.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC), the St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge,
Wakulla County, St. Marks
Refuge Association and the
Sport Fish Restoration Program
present a FREEI Kids' Fishing
Clinic for children between the
ages of 4 and 16 on Saturday,


May 31. Registration will begin
at 11 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. The
clinic will be held at Wooley
Park in Panacea.
This free event enables
young people to learn the basics
of environmental stewardship,
fishing ethics, angling skills and
safety. In addition, environmen-
tal displays will provide partici-
pants with a unique chance to
experience Florida's marine life
firsthand.
Kids' Fishing Clinics pro-
mote several goals, but the main
objective is to create responsible


marine resource stewards by
teaching children about the vul-
nerability of Florida's marine
ecosystems. In addition, the clin-
ics aspire to teach fundamental
saltwater fishing skills and pro-
vide participants with a positive
fishing experience.
Fishing equipment and bait
will be supplied for children to
use during the clinic, but those
who own fishing tackle tare
encouraged to bring it. A limit-
ed number of rods andl reels will
be given away to participants
upon completion of the clinic.


If conditions allow, partici-
pants will have the opportunity
to practice their new skills and
fish from the dock. This event is
a photo catch-and-release activi-
ty, and all participants must be
accompanied by an adult.
Individuals or companies
interested in helping sponsor this
event or volunteer at the clinic
should contact Gus Cancro with
the FWC at 850-488-6058 or
l.ori Nicholson with the United
States Fish and Wildlife Service
at 850-925-6121.


FWC asks boaters to wear life jackets, pay attention


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) reported 77 boating
fatalities for 2007. Though this
number may be disconcerting,
following a few simple rules and
paying attention while boating
can make the difference between
a safe and enjoyable day on the
water and one that ends tragical-
ly.
Gov. Charlie Crist and
Florida's cabinet members
passed a resolution today pro-
claiming May 17-23 as National
Safe Boating Week in Florida.
The FWC is using this event to
announce the kickoff of the
"Wear it Florida" campaign,


which is ained at encouraging
boaters of all ages to wear a life
jacket while boating.
browningg is the leading
cause of death in boating acci-
dents, and there's an easy fix
wear a lite jacket," said Lt. Ed
Cates of the FWC's Division of
Law Enforcement. "There are
several styles of life jackets avail-
able that won't interfere with
your boating experience and
may save your life."
Today's boaters can choose
from several models of light and
comfortable inflatable belt pack
and over-the-shoulder style life
jackets that can be worn while
fishing or enjoying the sun and


do not interfere with boating
activities
Accidents occur without
warning, and, it for some reason
you end up in the water, quite
often it's too late to put on a life
jacket.
"The second leading cause
of death in boatulg accidents is
boaters colliding with other
boats or objects," Cates said.
"With the growing number of
boaters in our beautiful state, it's
important to pay close attention
to everything that's going on
around your boat."
Statistics repeatedly show
that boaters who have taken a
basic boating safety class are less


likely to be involved in a boating
accident.
"The frequency of boating
accidents in Florida and their
causes would probably be a
shock to most people," Cates
said. "We spend a lot of time
reviewing and analyzing boating
accident data and compiling that
data into an annual statistical
report. Our ultimate goal is to
change accident trends in our
state and reduce the number of
accidents, injuries and deaths on
Florida waters."
The 2007 Boating Accident
Statistical Report is now avail-
able online at MyFWC.com/
law/boating/.

Fishing agreements
Florida and Georgia recent-
ly cancelled a longstanding
agreement that allowed both
states' resident senior citizens to
go freshwater fishing or hunting
in either state without purchas-
ing licenses. However, special
regulations adopted by the two
states for Lake Seminole in
Jackson County and the St.
Mary's River in Nassau and
Baker counties remain in effect.
The regulations spell out
that fishermen under age 16,
those legally licensed in either
state, exempt anglers or those
who have obtained a free perma-
nent license can fish in either
water body.
The waters of Lake Semin-
ole where Florida anglers may
fish are generally defined as all
waters south to the Jim
Woodruff Dam and east to the
area known as the Booster Club,
and extending northwest across
the lake to the tip of land at the
junction of the Flint and Chatta-
hoochee rivers. Georgia resi-
dents, without a non-resident
Flonda fishing license, can fish
the waters of Lake Seminole to
Florida State Road 271.
The agreement covers the St.
Mary's River, with the exception
of its tributaries on the Georgia
side.
Bag limits for freshwater fish
on both water bodies are as fol-
lows: black bass-10 (must be 12
inches or greater); bream-50;
crappie 30; pickerel-15; and
stripers/white bass-Lake
Seminole-15 (only two 22 inch-
es or larger); stripers/white
bass-St. Mary's River-2 (both
fish must be 22 inches or larger).
Quota hunts
FWC will be accepting
applications June 2-12 for quota
permits to hunt on wildlife man-
agement areas (WMAs) next
season.
On many WMAs, quota per-
mits are required for hunters
wishing to hunt during the first
nine days of the general gun sea-
son as well as for other hunts,
including the archery and muz-
zleloading gun seasons.
Worksheets are available at
MyFWC.com/hunting. They
also will be available from coun-
ty tax collectors' offices, license
agents and FWC regional offices
beginning May 23.
To apply, take a worksheet
to any license agent or tax collec-
tor's office or apply online at
www.wildlifelicense.com begin-
ning 10 a.m. (EDT) June 2
through midnight June 12.
Worksheets for recreational
use permits are now available at
MyFWC. com/hunting.
Recreational use permits are
issued on a first-come, first-
served basis beginning 10 a.m.
(EDT) June 4. Also, worksheets
will be available June 5 for hunts
involving airboats, track vehicles,
quail, youths, families and
mobility-impaired persons.

Off-road vehicle law aimed at


keeping young
Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced that a new state
law that takes effect July I requires any-
one under 16 who operates an off-high-
way vehicle (OHV) on public lands to
complete an approved OHV safety course
in Florida or another jurisdiction, and
have the certificate in their possession.
"This is a very important piece of leg-
islation and is geared for the protection of
our young people," Bronson said. "The
popularity of riding ATVs and off-high-
way motorcycles has steadily grown
among our youth in Florida, and hopeful-
ly this law will reduce the number of acci-
dents and fatalities that occur each year."
A study conducted by the U.S.
Consumer Product Safety Commission
(CPSC) reported that in 2006, there were
555 fatalities in the United States from


ters safe
ATV riding alone. ihe number of fatal-
ties of children under the age of 16 was
111 (20 %).
The law was passed by the Florida
Legislature in 2007, but it gave young rid-
ers a year to get into compliance with the
training requirement.
The state has adopted two nation-
wide programs, the ATV Safety Institute
and The Dirt Bike School, as the premier
training curriculum for youth under the
age of 16 to take in order to legally ride
on public lands, Bronson said.
To find out more about OHV riding
in Florida, the Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services has implemented
a new webpage at www.floridaohv.org. At
this site citizens can find updated infor-
mation on where to legally ride in Florida
and how youths can register to take the
required OHV training.

Marianna vets clinic to open mid-June


This week, Congressman
Allen Boyd (D-North Florida), a
veteran of Vietnam, celebrated
the impending opening of the
new veterans' clinic in
Marianna, at a dedication and
ribbon cutting ceremony. The
new community-based outpa-
tient clinic (CBOC) in Jackson
County will begin taking appli-
cations and scheduling patients
for future appointments begin-
ning June 5 and will open for full
services mid-June.
In January, the VA announc-
ed that the location for the
CBOC in Jackson County would
be at a former medical practice
office building located at 4970
Highway 90, just east of the
State Road 71 intersection.
"I am proud of this new vet-
erans' clinic, but more than that,
I am proud of the veterans it will
serve," said Congressman Boyd.


"Our veterans deserve the best
care we can provide, as close to
them as we can provide it. With
over 75,000 veterans in Noith
Florida, this new veterans' clinic
really is an extraordinaii victory
for our veterans."
Veterans who have not pre-
viously enrolled for care in VA
will be seen first. Patients cur-
rently being seen by a VA
provider who wish to transfer
their care to the Marianna
CBOC are asked to continue to
see their current provider.
These veterans will be added to a
waiting list and will be worked in
for appointments after the newly
enrolled veterans are seen.
The clinic will be a primary
care facility that also can provide
mental health services, treat
chronic diseases, and perform
wellness screenings. -The VA
anticipates that about 4,000 vct


crans. both new and existing.
will be served at the Mananna
CBOC.
Since 2004. Congressman
Bovd has been wo king with the
VA to move forward with the
plans for a (lC(OC in Jackson
County. In 2006, Congressman
Boyd brought former VA Under
Secretary for Health, I)r.
Jonathan B. Perlin, to Marianna
so that he could meet with local
officials and talk about plans for
the CBOC in Jackson County.
"We have an obligation to
the men and women who have
served and defended our coun-
try." Boyd stated. "This new
veterans' clinic in Marianna will
ensure that North Florida's
deserving veterans have conven-
ient access to proper medical
care, and the opening of the clin-

Quick fixes before showing your home for sale


Dea r .lane,
I'm a 'Jane' in Chicago and
I'm considering selling my 2 bed-
room condo in the city. Any tips
on how I can get what I want
price-wise?
-Maria C, Chicago, Illinois
Dear Maria,
There are a ton of things you
can do to make your home more
appealing to potential buyers and
the good news is you don't need
a ton of money to do so! With a
few DlY tips and attention to
detail, you can help improve the
chances of a quick sale.
Because the real estate mar-
ket has cooled recently, you'll
need to do a bit more work to
make sure you get as close to
your asking price as possible.
Here's where to start:
Control Clutter
Working on the assumption


.r .G (l





By Heidi Baker
and Eden Jarrin


that your condo is in good work-
ing order, make sure your home
is absolutely immaculate. If you
have a ton of stuff that you sim-
ply can't find a place for, tem-
porarily put it in storage or ask if
you can borrow a friend's garage
Stuffing your closets with your
junk will only turn oti a poten-
tial buyer You are planning on
moving anyway, so consider this
a pre-packing session. Besides


removing clutter, have your car-
pets professionally cleaned, dust
thoroughly (and this includes
above doors, along baseboards,
behind the fridge, etc), wash the
windows, and otherwise make
sure the place is spotless. Hire a
cleaning crew if this isn't some-
thing you want to do yourself -
it'll be money well spent!
Space Out
Everyone is looking for
ample room in their new home,
so try to create the illusion of
space (Cleaning out the clutter
will help a lot.) Open the blinds,
rearrange the furniture, and
wherever possible to create the
illusion of more light place mir-
rots on the walls! What you are
gaining for are areas with great
light and flow.
Get Warm
While you want to make
your home look bigger, you don't

want it to feel sparse or sterile.
Make sure you have some ele-
ment of coziness. There are a
number of ways to create that
warm feeling with items like
rugs, cozy throw blankets, or
paint. You can also add conser-
vative artwork in rooms with
bare walls, and if you have a fire-
place be sure to have it lit when
buyers are looking at your home.
It's also a great idea to light can-
dles in a bedroom or bathroom
too.
Flaunt It
What are your home's major
selling points? Perhaps it has a
great fireplace or a balcony with
an incredible view. Whatever it
is, play it up! If it's that fantastic
fireplace, accent it in new tile or
paint it to make it stand out.

EARTH


TALK
Questions & Answers
About Our Environment

Dear EarthTalk:
What is the "clean tech"
business sector and why have I
been hearing that term so much
lately?
- Andrea Newell, Denver, CO
Cleantech is a loosely
defined category of businesses
dedicated to creating cutting
edge technologies that address
the world's environmental prob-
lems. These high flying compa-
nies-most of which began
small with the hope of ascending
to publicly traded status-are the
new darlings of Wall Street,
attracting billions in venture cap-
ital and public funding in what
many financial analysts are call-
ing the next big thing since the
burst of the dot-cor bubble.
Venture capitalists poured
more than $3 billion into the
cleantech sector in 2007 alone.
Whether this cleantech boom
will lead the rest of the economy
down the green path for the long
term-or go bust in a couple of
years like its dot-corn predeces-
sor-remains to be seen.
In the thick of the move-
ment is Cleantech Network
LLC, a research firm and dear-
inghouse for cleantech compa-
nies and investors that also pub-
lishes the online information
clearinghouse, Cleantech.com.
The firm defines its budding
industry as "new technology and
related business models offering
competitive returns for investors
and customers while providing
solutions to global challenges."
The firm interacts with a
network of 8,000 investors, 6,000
companies and 3,500 profession-
al organizations involved in
alternative energy, and energy
efficient transportation, waste-
water management technologies,
air pollution control innovations,
sustainable materials production
and sourcing, environmentally
responsible industrial and agri-
cultural applications, and waste
recycling and management.
Some examples of the thou-
sands of companies that consid-
er themselves part of the clean-
tech movement include: Fina-
vcia Renewablcs. a firm that is
developing underwater turbines
and buoys to .generate power
fiom the ocean's tides and waves:
3TIFR Group. w which uses
advanced computer modeling to
help energy companies and utili-
ties figure out where best to site
wind. solar and hydro-clectric
projects: Avalence I.L.C. which is
developing high-pressure hydro-
gen generation and storage
equipment that will dispense
hydrogen lor use in transporta-
tion. home powet and industrial
applications; and, Infinia
Corporation, which is develop-
ing a utility-scale system to har-
vest sol.u energy.
Over and above the clean-
tech sector's potential for
addressing crucial environlen-
tal problems, analysts see it as a
bright spot in the darkening pic-
ture of the recession-bound
economy over the next few years.
Marketing research and consult-
ing firm Fuji Keizai USA expects

Quick Fixes

There are many inexpensive
and easy upgrades that you can
tackle in under a day with fabu-
lous results. Old light fixtures
and faucets can be replaced rela-
tively easily and bring your home
up to date in dramatic fashion.
For added ambiance, install dim-
mer switches throughout your
condo and set the mood when
you are expecting people to walk
through. While you want to

smells can make a big impact on0
the perception and imemoly of a
space, so make SUte you have tha-
grant flowers (tit an equivalent)

(We've heard of people rubbing
their light bulbs with vanilla to
conjure up images of baking, but
we don't know if this actually
sold anything!) Don't make your
home too fragrant, however.
What smells good to one person
tends to overpower another.
Display the bare minimum

make your place look bigger and
give your home that envied (and
sought after) model home look
Invest in matching towels, bed-

Be careful, it's now

wildfire season


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Cominis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson is
reminding Floridians to be cau-
tious as the wildfire danger con-
tinues to increase and is also ask-
ing for the public's help to com-
bat arson.
"Wildfires over the weekend
led to the closing of 1-95 in two
places on Sunday and serve as a
reminder that this year's wildfire
season is not over," Bronson
said.
The LPGA fire in Volusia
County burned 1,000 acres and
shut down portions of 1-95 on
Sunday as tire fighters battled
gusty winds in attempts to con-


trol the tire The 3,000 acre
Osage Fire in Brevard County
also shut down portions of 1-95
yesterday and destroyed a home
and multiple outbuildings.
Bronson's Division of Fores-
try is coordinating the suppres-
sion efforts on both fires and will
bring in additional personnel
and equipment today to help
with suppression efforts.
"Gusty winds and low rela-
tive humidities will hamper sup-
pression efforts again today"
Bronson said. "Smoke from
wildfires can greatly reduce visi-
bility so use extreme caution
when driving through smoke


Civil rights restoration

procedure explained


Mayor from Page 1
Following, former mayor
Mel Kelly gave a heartfelt talk,
sharing her personal and profes-
sional recollections of Charles.
Some of her words were, "The
candy man is gone, and with him
fade memories of Carrabelle
gone by.It wasn't easy being
mayor here, but he did it for you
three times."
lie was remembered as fair
and conscientious, accessible
and friendly. In other words, lhe
was a good public servant. His
health was iII the ightl place fois
the City, and tfl the people who
called it home.
"lie told ie of his trips to
Tallahassee to make sure things
got done right up there for
Cart.ablle lie told me of times
and people who l\ thenn mark
on our town. lie told me of the
busy days hece, and of thie chal-
lenges he faced as other strong
leaders tried to direct their own
personally motivated paths for
Carrabelle. He told me his heart
doctor finally told him he had to
quit because the job was killing
him. But he also told me that
every day of his term, he could
look himself in the mirror with a
clear conscience
"He was a; good man who
has grown children still living
here in his town He, and his
wife Virginia. their mother, tried
to make sure that their children
understood the values of family
and the importance of cultivat-
ing strong roots in their commu-
nity. as others in the large
Nillender family have done.
Indeed. it was his daughter and
her own family who cared for
him in his long, last struggles
wth his final illness lie sh.ied
their dinner table and their coin
lortlal'lc h.ur. thei i ni coI ,.ation
.mnd their love lice waIched
gi.indchildren glow" and have


their own babies, and he helped
them all better understand what
it means to be a member of the
Carrabelle family.
"He taught in Sunday
school, he taught as the city
leader, and he taught all who
knew him how to be strong of
opinions, to be firm and forth-
right. He and his family of 11
brothers and sisters have had a
vital influence on the Franklin
County area. They lived and
worked here and married and
raised their own children here.
The Millender roots grow deeply
in the heritage of this area, and
each influenced their communi-
ties in then own way.
"1 didn't know all of them;
but I am grateful I had the privi-
lege to know Charles. (I think
lie liked me because after I was
elected to be Carrabelle's Mayor,
he proudly presented me with his
own personal wooden carved
"Mayor" sign, which had been
specially made for him.)
"Our first hug was shared at
the funeral service of his wife
Virginia in 2005, when I offered
my truly heartfelt sympathy at
her death. My own mother had
preceded my father in death, as
did my husband's mother. I
could see the sadness and the
loss each day in the faces of
those men they had loved but
had to leave behind.
"So my heart ached for
Charles, knowing he had cared
devotedly for his wife as she
struggled not to leave him. After
her death, it was his turn to
struggle, first with his anger and
unbearable loneliness, then final-
ly with the ill health that ulti-
mately overwhelmed him.
"My friend, his daughter,
told me he died peacefully at her
home on Tuesday morning, sur-
rounded by his loving family. But
the memory I will treasure is the
moment of his passing that she


shared with me. She told me he
how he opened his eyes, looking
up toward the ceiling, reached
out as if to grasp a welcoming
hand, and died."
At this point, the former
mayor was holding back tears,
but kept on to say, "How blessed.
are those who will also see that
waiting hand reaching out
toward them to ease their own
transition into the life that lies
beyond this earth. So goodbye
to you, Candy Man. You
brought your family heritage to
life in Carrabelle and you tried to
make it a sweeter place for us to
live."
With that, Katherine Mock
and Rita Millender rose with
baskets of gold-wrapped candies,
("the first ones we can remember
him passing out," said Cheryl
Millender Glass.) A sweet final
memento for a sweet man.
Pastor Stevens called for
memories of Charles that those
assembled would care to share.
Charles and Virginia's neighbors
recalled how they were blessed
to have them; they were always
ready with helping hands in
times of need. An old Navy
buddy, Basil McKnight, shared
the tale of how he and Charles
and three other Carrabelle boys
enlisted in the Navy together,
took a train to San Diego, and
ended up in the same unit, with
Charles as the leader. After the
service, the assembly shared a
luncheon, and more memories
of Charles.
Later, Cheryl Glass said,
"We have a memorial bench in
the garden in our backyard. We
are going to have a private fami-
ly gathering, and put Momma's
ashes in one of the bench sup-
ports, and Daddy's in the other."
Even in death, Charles and
Virginia will be with their
beloved family, and together in
peace.


Q: How can a person go
about having their civil rights
restored'
A. Undrr Florida Statute
944.292, upon conviction of a
felony as defined in s 10. Art X
of the State Constitution. the
civil rghts of the person convict-
ed shall be suspended in Florda
until such nghts are restored.
The right most often referred to
our office is the right to vote. Per
Florida Statute 940.05, any per.
son who has been convicted of a
felony crime may be entitled to
the restoration of all the rights of
citizenship enjoyed prior to con-
viction if they have:
(1) Received a full pardon
from the board of pardons.
(2) Served the m.axsmun
term of the sentence imposed .
or
(3) lccrn granted linal
release hv thie Parole
Commission
When a person intends to
apply fot restoration of civil
rights, an appliation form must
be completed that will require
the submission of a certified
copy of the applicant's indclt
ment or information, the ludg-
mcnt ,idludicating the ipplica.nt
guilty, and the sentence It will
also require the applicant to send
a copy of the application to the
judge and prosecuting attorney
of the court of the conviction
giving them notice of same. The
certified copies shall be fur-
nished by the clerk of court's
office.
For those persons wishing to
have their civil rights restored
who are under supervision (pro-
bation), it is required of the
agent of the Department of
Corrections to obtain the forms,

A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER


May 16, 2008 Page 19


Crofton running for re-election


SUBMITTED BY
RUSSELL CROFTON
Franklin County Commissioner

In 1976, I purchased a lot on
St. George Island and, because
of the hunting and fishing in the
area, immediately built my
house there. Upon retirement in
2001, Franklin County became
my permanent residence. My
house on St. George is the only
property I own. I want to contin-
ue to serve the citizens of
Franklin County as their County
Commissioner, District 1.
From 1964 to 1968, 1 served
on active duty in a South Florida
Coast Guard Search and Rescue
Unit and was a member of the
Coast Guard Reserve for two
more years. In 2001, 1 retired
from flying as a captain for Delta
Airlines after flying more than
20,000 accident-free hours;
which equates to nearly 10 mil-
lion accident-free miles. During
those 32 years, I represented my
fellow pilots in the Air Line
Pilots Association, serving as
both chairman and member of
various boards and committees. I
negotiated a vast array of issues
ranging from addressing griev-
ances to contractual matters
within Delta, directly represent-
ing 10,000 pilots, and on a
national level with other member
airlines. For six years, I was a
member of the Air Line Pilots
Association Board of Directors,
representing over 50.000 pilots.


Crofton

My negotiation and mediation
skills have assisted our commu-
nities with the complexities
involved in trying to accommo-
date the needs and concerns of
all of our citizens.
I was a volunteer firefighter
and a trained Scout Master in
Fulton County, Ga., and the
proud father of an Eagle Scout. I
have worked for the Seafood
Festival, the Chili Cook Off, the
Island playground benefit, and
supported the Eastpoint and St.
George Island Fire Departments.
I have a Florida teaching certifi-
cate, a Bachelor of Science
degree in geology, both hunting
and fishing licenses, a current
pilot's license, and an open-water
diver certification. I have been
chairman and vice chairman of
the Franklin County Commis-
sion. I have also been chairman
of the Canvassing Board,
Chairman of the Value Adjust-

The Franklin County Commission approved the expenditure of
$1,257,968.04 at their May 6, 2008 meeting. The bills are listed as
follows, published for the Board by the County Finance Office.


ment Board, Chairman of the
Transportation of the l)isadvan-
taged Board, served on the
Board of the Wilderness Coast
library, and the Tourist
Development Council. I have
been instrumental in attracting
jobs and grant money to
Franklin County and will contin-
tie to do so. Because we were
unable to grant pay raisesto tohe
county employees, I declined to
take my pay raise also.
Just some of the issues that
still need to be addressed are:
road paving, property taxes,
attracting more jobs and, as an
avid fisherman, keeping the Bay
clean. I will not be accepting
campaign donations during the
upcoming election season.
Given the diversity of indi-
viduals and interests within our
community, we must make sure
that our rules are fair, reasonable
and equally enforced. There
should always be a continued
questioning and rethinking of
both our long and short term
goals; and I will continue to
bring imagination, new and cre-
ative ideas, and new perspectives
to our County Commission.

A Taste of Paradise


Bob and Edda Allen have recently gone to great extent to bring the finest
culinary delights to Franklin County. White Eagle Restaurant and the
Allen's are proud to introduce Chef Randy. Chef Randy brings with him
30 plus years of experience with New Orleans flair. Among several of the
places Chef Randy has had an opportunity to work at Antoines in New
Orleans, Maxim's in Europe as well as Palm Springs, Nardo's in New
Orleans, and the Golf Course in Crawfordville. Hurricane Katrina ravaged
his job as well as his home in New Orleans but the one thing it could not
take away was his love for culinary creation. From his special recipe breads,
cakes and pastries to his one of kind main dishes, he prefers all fresh
ingredients and adds that little extra Umph... of personal TLC. He is also
well versed in French cuisine and simple down home southern delights.
While admittedly he cannot improve the perfection of the world famous
"Apalachicola Oyster" he looks forward to the challenge of delightful sauces
and additions to enhance the flavor and using only local fresh caught seafood
for many of his main courses.
"Come See", "Le Bon Ton Rou Le", Let the Good Times Roll. Chef Randy says.
"Customers are what matters", and extends and invitation to come and let
your taste buds come alive. Enjoy the magnificent sunsets and lure of all the
senses on the back deck of White Eagle Restaurant.
