Forgotten Coast TV To Air
Expanded Programming
BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE
Forgotten Coast TV, which has previously aired on channel 9 of St
George Island TV, has recently expanded to Mediacom Cable channel
3 and will now air countywide. The local TV station, which is owned
and produced by Helen Townsend Spohrer, is nqw showing previews of
future programs which will be presented in their entirety starting
December 15, 2006.
In a recent interview, manager and editor Royce Rolstad III said that
the station plans to expand its community service by recording and air-
ing Franklin County Commission meetings, School Board meetings
and Planning and Zoning meetings. Rolstad says the station will con-
tinue to add programming and adds, "Now we have expanded to all of
Franklin County where more people can see us, the possibilities are
endless. The Station is planning a sponsorship plan whereby local busi-
nesses and individuals can sponsor shows in a way similar to how the
PBS channel works." Potential sponsors and donors can contact
Rolstad at his office. Phone: (850)653-3288 or by e-mail at:

Christmastime In Apalachicola


John Spohrer talks to Captain George Ward about crab fish-
ing in Apalachicola Bay.

Franklin County's Own Channel
Forgotten Coast TV, Inc. originally aired on St. George Cable on June
24, 2005. The channel features locally produced programs about the
area with an emphasis on environmental and educational program-
ming.
FCTV is the brainchild of Helen and John Spohrer who have lived in
the area since the early 1980s. Helen Spohrer is the owner of
Prudential Resort Realty and John Spohrer is a local nature photogra-
pher and author of "Florida's Forgotten Coast."
Helen Spohrer says she was looking for something that would create a
creative outlet and allow her to learn about a new field. "I wanted to
do something that would be good for Franklin County; something I
would feel good about doing and working on."
A major part of FCTV's programming deals with local environmental
issues. Spohrer's husband is host of "Forgotten Coast Outdoors," a
program dedicated to educating people about Franklin County's envi-
ronment. "There is no place like this in the world," says Spohrer. "It
is special and should be protected."
FCTV also features historical programs about the area. Apalachicola
native, Dolores Roux, hosted a two-part series on the Chesnut Street
Cemetery in which she discusses the people who are buried there and
the part they played in Apalachicola's daily life.,
In addition to original programming, FCTV also airs programs
acquired from other sources such as the Apalachicola National
Estuarine Research Reserve and WFSU-TV.
Apalachicola native, Royce Rolstad, III who graduated from Florida
State University in April 2005 was hired to manage the channel. With
a Bachelor of Arts in Communication,
Rolstad came to FCTV with experience as a host, producer, writer, and
videographer. While at FSU he interned at WFSU-TV and WCTV
News Channel 6.


Dolores Roux shown narrating the Historical Cemetery Tour of
the Chesnut Street Cemetery in Apalachicola.

In July of 2005 Barry Townsend.was hired as a videographer and pro-
duction assistant for the channel.
In the spring of 2006 FCTV asked the Franklin County Commission to
activate their community information channel on Mediacom (Channel
3), and on November 15, 2006 FCTV went on the air. New programs
will come to FCTV with the expansion of the channel to the entire
Franklin County community. FCTV will begin covering the Franklin
County Board of County Commissioners meetings and other govern-
ment information.
They will also be implementing a sponsorship program in which indi-
viduals and local businesses can sponsor programs on the channel.
In spring of 2d06 FCTV produced a behind the scenes look at the mak-
ing of the award winning documentary, "Apalachicola River: An
American Treasure." This candid look at the people behind the project
was featured on the "Apalachicola River: An American Treasure"
DVD and can also been seen on FCTV along with the documentary.
It's the goal of FCTV to bring people, places, and events to the citizens
of Franklin County and make people more aware of what is happening
in their community.

BY TOM LOUGHRIDGE
At Apalachicola's Annual
Christmas celebration in down-
town Apalachicola on the Friday
after Thanksgiving, Santa arrived
from his North Pole Workshops
on his magical shrimp boat to
preside over the lighting of the
Christmas tree and talk to all the
boys and girls about their
Christmas wishes. After seeing
the long lines of happy children
and their patient parents and
grandparents 'waiting to see
Santa, I was left to wonder if
Mrs. Santa has a pretty good sup-
ply of "lap liniment" for the day
after. I know, though, that Santa
(Alec Moody) has been doing this
for many years and he genuinely
enjoys talking to the children and
hearing their laughter as they
wait to tell him their special
Christmas desires.
Many forms of entertainment
were available throughout the
town. After the lighting of the
Christmas tree, Pam Nobles'
dance studio presented the
"Dancing Snowflakes", followed
by tiny tots dancing with teddy


bears and marching toy soldiers.
A group of local singers per-
formed Christmas carols from the
balcony over the corner of Ave.
"C" and Market St. The carolers
were led by Bay Area Chorale
director Merle Young. At the
other end of town, on Ave. "E",
Carol Harris and her daughter,
Lynette Holmstock, performed
with guitar and violin for the late
shoppers. When asked if there
was a special reason for their per-
formance, Harris said, "Just to
have a good time and bring in the
holiday." That was the general
mood downtown; having a good
time and getting the Christmas
spirit revved up.
Michael and Nadine Zemon
from Alachua, Florida were visit-
ing with their wonder dog, Skye.
Nadine said, "The town is very
charming and comfortable."
Michael added, "and the food is
very good."
Clinton and Linda Tanner from
Cedartown Georgia were here
with their children, Clint and
Carla. The Tanners remarked
that, "(Apalachicola) is a won-


Ashley Moore and Sydney and MacKenize Shuman visit with
Santa.


derful place. We try to make it an
annual thing. We've enjoyed
everything."
Katina Williams' son Travarious,
said he had seen Santa and asked
him for a dirt bike and a play sta-
tion for Christmas
On Friday night Apalachicola


"Does Santa put real bones in
our stockings?"


Crowds of shoppers on Market Street.


Franklin County Tourist
Development Council
This report is the completion of the Tourist Development Council's
fourth small grant award program. During this cycle we had a total of
$395,215 in requests for available funds of $100,000. There were a
number of excellent requests and a number of first time requests which
demonstrated a new interest in the off-peak event program. We were
sorry we could not fund everyone all they requested.
In reviewing the excess collections over anticipated revenues we were
able propose a total of $107,550 for this cycle. During the grant review
discussion we were able to identify some requests that were not appro-
priate for the small grant program which allowed us to redline the
requests down to $215,100. In the end we were able to recommend 19
awards in amounts ranging from $2,200 to $7,500 each with the stipu-
lation that at least half of the award go to out of the area advertising.
In addition to the small grant awards, the TDC has been able to pro-
pose funding in the amount of $68,720 to four county wide promotion-
al campaigns. These campaigns will highlight all of our tourist areas
and stay within the 40% guideline for promotion that was approved by
the public at referendum.
In the next few months we will be back to the Commission with the rec-
ommendations for infrastructure projects that you and the city have
identified.
We have also provided you with an accounting of funds allocated over
the life of the program so far. We are pleased to have been able to raise
and allocate $934,179 in total funds to community infrastructure proj-
ects, promotion and non-profit organizations.

Franklin

Briefs

November 21, 2006
BY RICHARD E. NOBLE

David Morse-Tate's Hell
Ranger David Morse spoke to the
Board about the management of
Tate's Hell State Forest and the
Department's ten year plan. "The
ten year plan addresses the multi-
ple benefits that the public is to
derive off the land which
includes timber, wildlife, recre-
ation and ... clean water. That
plan has an advisory group and
the plan is presented to the pub-
lic. That public hearing is set for
December 12th-it's a Tuesday
evening-at 6 to 8 p.m. at the
Apalachicola Community
Center. I am here to formally
invite the Board members and
your constituencies that you rep-
resent and any public present to
attend that (meeting). 'We will
have refreshments. There will be
a presentation of the ten year
management plan ... and then we
will be open.to public comment.
We actively solicit that com-
ment."

David McClain-River
Keeper's Update
"This was to have been an update
for the County Commission and
the public on where we stand on
the ACF water allocation issue
and negotiations. We are still in
litigation; we are still in the
Federal Court System right now.
It is still a water war between
Georgia, Florida and Alabama-
actually between Atlanta,
Georgia, Florida and Alabama.
We are entering another legal
realm called NEPA-The
National Environmental Protec-
tion Act. NEPA requires that an
environmental impact statement
be developed by the Corps of
Engineers for water contract such
as they are contemplating for
awarding out of lake Lanier-
taking more water for Atlanta
and less water to come down the
stream-they have to do an. envi-
ronmental - impact statement.
They are at the front end of that-
it may take two years. Right now
what we are trying to do is devel-
op the scope of that so that it is
not just a superficial environmen-
tal impact statement and that it
does in fact go against the things
that will impact on us here. We
are not just interested in what
happens in Atlanta; we're inter-
ested in what happens down
here."
There is a meeting on the 6th of
December in Tallahassee relating
to these issues. Mr. McClain tried
to impress the Board and the pub-
lic that a substantial representa-
tion from this area would be
extremely important in getting
"our" voice heard on these issues.
"Without being heard (on this
issue) Atlanta gets it all and we
get a muddy ditch-and I know
that is not what you all want. I
appreciate all your support and
anybody else from the general
public who wants to attend that
meeting in Tallahassee-it is
appreciated and encouraged."
Mr. McClain further informed
the Board that he and his group
have also'been actively involved
with Congressmen Boyd and Bill
Nelson in trying to get Federal
support and attention on this
issue.
The meeting is from 5 to 8 p.m.
on Dec. 6th at the Center for
Economic and Workforce
Development at the Tallahassee
Community College.
A resolution was also approved
opposing a coal fired power plant
in Georgia that would be taking
water from the river system.

Curt Blair-TDC Grant
Awards
Mr. Blair presented to the Board
a list of the proposed Awards
(money) granted to the various
organizations here in Franklin
County in support of the commu-
nity and its attempt to attract
business and tourism. (The com-
plete list is printed in this issue of
the Franklin Chronicle).
There was a discussion and some
opposition as to the appropriate-
ness of some of the awards. Ms.
Sanders and Mr. Putnal both felt
that the World War 11 Museum
in Carrabelle should have been
granted the full amount that they
had requested. Other Commis-
sioners pointed out that all the


recommendations had been
halved in what seemed to be a fair
and even manner. The Dixie
Theatre was the main bone of
contention since they had spon-
sored several community events
and received partial awards for
each event. The matter was
brought to a vote. It was three in
favor of passing the TDC's rec-
ommendations as suggested and
two against-Putnal and Sanders
voting against.

Public Hearing-Alligator
Point Beach Renourishment
"This project is of special interest
to the residents of Alligator Point
because it involves the beach
renourishment at Alligator Point.
Ultimately the residents of
Alligator Point may have to
decide how much they want to
pay for this project." Alan Pierce
informed the Board and the lis-
tening public. "I will tell you that
this is the first step in a long
road."
Mr. Pierce then informed the lis-
teners-particularly those attend-
ing from Alligator Point - that
tonight's public meeting was
specifically related to the purpose
of establishing a non-binding res-
olution in order to place the
County in a position to pursue
future proposals, grants and pos-
sibilities. "We need to take some
steps if we are going to move for-
ward on this project. And second-
ly ... we need an ordinance
which will establish more specifi-
cally the guidelines that will
determine the funding in this
project."
Camille Tharp for GSG in
Tallahassee then presented a
Power Point Program related to
the various taxing and funding
methods involved in this beach
renourishment program. Her
presentation was very informa-
tive, very involved and financially
very technical-and preliminary.
She did give specifics or potential
dollar amounts that could be
involved if a suggested course
was taken. All of her suggested
tax proposals were quite expen-
sive and burdensome to specific
Alligator Point Beach residents.
Her presentation involved various
taxing methods and fund raising
techniques or options available to
the County and the citizens of
Alligator Point. But none of what
she presented was binding or
being enacted at this public hear-
ing. It was all FYI and for the
purpose of moving the ball along
with a non-binding resolution
and ordinance-both of which
were approved. This will be a dis-
cussion that we will be hearing
more of in the future; and an
issue that should be of particular
concern to the residents of
Alligator Point Beach.

Gail Dodds-Hospital
"Primarily we would just like to
tell you that we are very happy
that we had this major break-
through with the Medicare pay-
ments-that's good news-and it
was asked by the community that
we have a feasibility health care
study and we are moving forward
with that." Ms Dodds informed
the Board that the hospital has
received nearly $500,000 in
Medicare payments in the last ten
days. (See current hospital finan-
cial status in this issue of the
Chronicle). The ambulance issue
.also was brought forward. The
question of whether or not
Emergystat should be continued
or if the hospital should take over
the ambulance service was dis-
cussed. It was decided to bring
this issue back to the Hospital
Advisory Committee and have all
parties concerned in this issue
look into it further before making
any decision. Any decision on
this matter was deferred for at
least 30 days.

Michael Shuler Report
Mr. Shuler updated the Board on
the DaSee legacy. DaSee left the
County, via the Weems Hospital,
approximately one million dol-
lars worth of debt. The County
may be able to recoup maybe
$200,000 worth of this debt by
settling matters and coming to a
compromise with GE. In return
for an agreement, GE will release
any claims it has against the
County-one being against the
Hospital license. GE will also
absorb some minor fees and serv-
ice charges. GE the forth largest
arms producer in the nation and
one of the largest and wealthiest
corporations in the world-just
doesn't seem to have enough
money to absorb any more of the
loss from DaSee.
A motion was offered to take Mr.
Shuler's advice and settle with
GE. The motion was approved.


Bill Snyder-Pauline
Sullivan
Mr. Snyder and Ms. Sullivan
were once again before the Board
protesting the actions of the
Lanark Water and Sewer Board.
The Lanark Board had agreed to
conform to the will of the people
as expressed on the resent ballot
proposal. Consequently Lanark
Sewer and Water should be ask-
ing to merge with the Carrabelle
Sewer and Water. But Ms.
Sullivan was on hand to warn the
Commissioners that some under-
handed shenanigans may be in
the workings. "There are some
problems in the way the Board
(Lanark Water and Sewer) is run-
ning at this point in time. There
are some unusual things going on
as far as the procedures in trying
to enter into agreement before the
merger goes forward. We ask that
you entertain putting us' on the
agenda."
Bill Snyder then stepped forward
and asked to be put on the agen-
da atthe next up coming County
Commission meeting.

Helen Spohrer
Helen Spohrer was on hand to
inform the Board that her new
Apalachicola TV station will
soo -be in the process of airing
the .County Commission meet-
ings, along with School Board
meetings and the P&Z hearings.
In Ejstpoint I have been watch-
.ing ah channel 3. I have enjoyed
the programming. It covers our
area; .the river, the bay, the histo-
ry, the sites and scenes, fishing,
wildlife-the community in gen-
eral.

Joseph Parrish
Mr. Parrish sat in on his first
County Commission meeting. He
is the new commissioner from
Apalachicola replacing Jimmy
Mosconis. Mr. Parrish was active
and concerned. He made a num-
ber of comments and inquiries.
Ms. Sanders was returned to the
Board defeating her opponent
Mr. Don Ashley.

Alan Pierce's Report to the
Board of County
Commissioners
Board action to approve a letter
of support for a grant being writ-
ten. by the St. George Island
Lighthouse Association. The
Board approved.
Board action to amend the SHIP
Plan to allow for up to $60,000 to
be made available to SHIP eligi-
ble home owners for emergency
repairs to owner occupied homes
damaged by natural disasters.
The requirements would be, if
approved, up to $5000 per appli-
cant to be used for emergency
pairs on the home. Thispro-
gram will be available to tornado
victims now, but if there is a hur-
ricane next summer, or another
tornado, this money will be avail-
able to future victims. If all the
money is not used it will revert
into other existing SHIP pro-
grams. The requirement is that
the home must be owner occu-
pied, and the owner be SHIP eli-
gible, and not have house insur-
ance. Board action: The Board
approved.
Remind the Board of the Gov.
and Cabinet meeting Dec. 5th
concerning comp plan. Board
meeting has been changed to
Dec. 6th at 9 a.m.
Inform Board that the Planning
Office will be accepting proposals
for comp plan amendments now
through end of January. The pro-
posals will be presented at the
February Planning and Zoning
Commission meeting for possible
consideration, but until we see
how many submissions there are
we will not know what sort of
schedule we will need.
Inform Board that after the public
input at the November Planning
and Zoning Commission the

'.county is going to move ahead
With the grant funded boat ramp
on the east side of the St. George
Island Bridge.
Direction on Phoenix Harbor. At
the November Planning and
Zoning Commission meeting the
Commission and the public
heard a presentation regarding a
revised site plan for Phoenix
Harbor and then heard com-
ments by Mr. David Heil, Mr.
Tom Franklin, a representative
from the Apalachicola National
Estuarine Reserve, and other
speakers. The revised develop-
ment included a total of 62
homes which was then reduced
to 58 homes served by an
advanced wastewater treatment
plant, no boat storage, and no
mooring facility in the boat basin,
and the donation of 2.5 acres of
land and the building of a boat
ramp to the county. The develop-
er also volunteered to do the first
dredging of the channel that used
to serve the boat basin, but there
was concern over whether the
dredging of the channel was a
good idea or not.
There was a great deal of discus-
sion about this development.
The Commission, on a 5-2 vote,
does recommend the project. The
normal course of events is for the
Board to agree to hold a public
hearing. I recommend the project
also receive a review by the Board
at a public hearing. The earliest a
public hearing could be held
would be Dec. 19th, but I recom-
mend the hearing be held Jan.
16th, which is the Board's second
meeting in January. The Board
approved.
'Board action to allow Mr. Paul
Lowe to replace an existing letter
of credit on improvements of a 4
lot subdivision known as Island
Breeze with a bond that for the
same improvements. The Bond
would expire on Dec. 10, 2008.
Staff has no objections. The
Board approved. .
Board action to allow the installa-
tion of two additional groundwa-
ter monitoring wells surrounding
the Express Lane on St. George
Island. The locations are the
north and south side of Pine
Street, which is the street on the
side of the Express Lane, DEP is
requiring the installation of the
temporary wells. The Board
approved.
Late Monday afternoon Franklin
County received a letter from
Emergystat requesting an
increase in the ambulance sub-
sidy. Currently the monthly sub-
sidy is $23,995, and Emergystat is
now requesting the subsidy go
back to what they had originally
proposed, which is $35,000.
I recommend the Board, request
EqergyJtat come to the next
meeting to discuss this, and also
ask the Hospital Board and Mr.
Colvert, Hospital CEO, if they
are ready to begin running the
ambulance service. If the county
ran the ambulance service part of
the cost of running the service
would be reimbursed through
Medicare, but the county must
have a competent billing agent
otherwise the county will lose
even more money than
Emergystat claims they are los-
ing. Emergystat letter ,is printed
below. Board action: The Board
approved.
Also late Monday afternoon,
Mark Curenton finished negotiat-
ing the changes in the architect's
fees that are based upon the work
the Chief Judge wants in the
courtroom. These fees as well as
the improvements are being paid
for out of $500,000 awarded to
Franklin County by the
Legislature over the last two ses-
sions. The county budget does
include some additional. money
for this project because the
Clerk's Office will be getting new
office space on the third floor. At
this time, the architect's construc-
tion estimates will require the
county to use some $20,000 of its


funds, and the Clerk and the
Finance Office is aware of this.
The Board approved.
Board action to amend the archi-
tect's contract to include addi-
tional fees for the scppe of work
requested by the judges, and
reducing architect's fees because
we are not re-roofing the court-
house since Mr. Frankie Crosby
successfully got the roofing con-
tractor to come back and fix the
roof. The total architect's fees
plus estimated expenses will be
$64,445.50. Board action to
approve this amount as an
amendment to the contract.
Inform Board that Preble-Rish,
C.W Roberts, myself, and DEP
staff are going to meet next week
at Alligator Point to review the
current road rebuilding project
that C.W Roberts is doing. The
county is trying to satisfy a
FEMA requirement that the cur-
rent road have a stabilized shoul-
der at the same time satisfy DEP
that we are not damaging turtle
habitat. FEMA has told myself,
Preble-Rish Engineers, and South
Shoal representatives that if the
county wants to assure FEMA
funding for Alligator Point Road
in the fuure that the county
needs to repair the road consis-
tent with the FEMA Project
Worksheet which calls for a revet-
ment along the shoulder of the
Road. It is my firm representation
to the county that we continue to
follow FEMA advice. The county
can not afford to have Alligator
Point Road become ineligible for
FEMA funding. The county is
attempting to repair 'the revet-
ment without bringing new mate-
rial onto to the Point.

Emergystat Ambulance,
Service
November 15, 2006
Franklin County Board of
Commissioners
33 Market St.
County Courthouse
Apalachicola, FL 32320-2317
Recently Emergystat came. before
the board to discuss the fact that
financially we could not continue
to operate for the subsidy, we
were receiving which was
$23,995.00. The county re-bid the
contract which Emergystat bid
on at a higher rate and was
awarded the contract.
Due to an error in the reporting
of some financial figures
received, we now'findwearea con-
tinuing to operate in the red and
will continue to do so.even
though we have made all possible
cost reductions.
This letter is to inform you that
we want to exercise the option to
terminate this contract per item
one (1) of the contract This sec
tion states that a sixty (60) day
written notice is required to ter-
minate the current contract
which would make the effective
date of this termination January
15, 2006; In the meantime, we
will continue to serve the citizens
of Franklin County and would be
happy to bid on a new contract if
the couqfy chooses to submit one.
However, if Emergystat chooses
nottt to submit a bid, we would still
be more than happy to help who-
ever does receive the bid, in order
that the citizens of Franklin
County are not without, ambu-
lance service.
Not withstanding the above
notice, the only way we can con-
tinue operations is if the subsidy
is increased to $35,000.00 per
month which our financial
department originally presented.
We 'apologize for any inconven-
ience or hardship this may cause
and hope you can understand our
position. It has been a pleasure to
serve Franklin County and look
forward to the opportunity to
provide service to its citizens
again.
Sincerely,

I need board approval of three
resolutions on unanticipated rev-
enues received in the prior budget
year. These resolutions must be
approved by you in order to com-
ply with FS. 129.06 (2)(d) which
says receipts not anticipated in
the budget and received for a par-
ticular purpose, may, by resolu-
tion of the board, be appropriated
and expended for that purpose
and the budget may be amended.
The first resolution deals with
$133,515 received from the State

money was put into the General
Revenue Fund for the Boat ramp
in the following areas: $1,275 to
engineering services and
$132,240.00 to infrastructure.
The second resolution deals with
$33,184.77 from the State of
Florida for the Seafood Industrial
Park Feasibility Study Grant.
This money was put into the
General Revenue Fund into
Contract Services/OTTED
Seafood Task Force. The third
resolution deals with $39,040.95
received from the State of Florida
for Homeland Security Grants.
The money was put into the
General Revenue Fund also in
the following areas: Homeland
Security Grant/DSI LLC
Contract $30,823.00, operating
supplies $2,022.95, and machin-
ery & equipment $6,195.00. This

defensive against growing foreign
competition of basa and tra,
cheaper breeds that threaten U.S.
catfish superiority.
Meeting recently in Atlanta to
promote American-bred catfish,
industry leaders voiced their frus-
tration with how Chinese and
Vietnamese farmers have been
nibbling away at their customers
with prices that are between 50
cents and a dollar per pound
cheaper.
While the federal government
predicts that 560 million pounds
of American farm-raised catfish
will be processed this year, a drop
of 15 percent from three years
ago, foreign rivals are making up
ground.
More than 24 million pounds of
Vietnamese basa and tra have
been shipped to the U.S. this year,
doubling last year's total. And
catfish imports from China have
almost tripled, rising to 4.1 mil-
lion pounds of frozen fillets,
according to the National Marine
Fisheries Service.
"It's been increasing," said
Jimmy Avery, a Mississippi State
University professor who leads
the National Warmwater
Aquaculture Center in Stoneville,
Miss. "And that trend is trou-
bling."
Another spike looms if the U.S.
agrees to a pact that would per-
manently normalize trade rela-
tions with Vietnam, which
President Bush discussed this
week with Vietnamese executives
during an eight-day trip to Asia.
Although the two countries have
a bilateral trade agreement,
American companies cannot take
full advantage of Vietnam's entry
into the World Trade
Organization unless the trade bill
passes.
The agreement along with
Vietnam's entry into the WTO
would require the country to

slash tariffs and trade barriers,
making it easier for foreign com-
panies to enter its market while
opening up export opportunities
for Vietnamese companies.
The plan is expected to pass
Congress, although The Catfish
Institute, a Jackson, Miss.-based
group, has tried to stave off a deal
by questioning the presence of
banned chemicals in the foreign
fish.
"While Asian seafood imports
are growing rapidly, federal
inspections and testing of this
food remains inadequate, at
best," said Roger Barlow, the
institute's president, who is trying
to build a "catfish caucus" in
Congress to support his cause.
Catfish farmers have fought back
before to protect their share of
the nation's top aquaculture prod-
uct, a resilient fish that spawns
easily and can survive fairly dras-
tic temperature swings.
Unfair trade complaints in 2003
led to antidumping restrictions
that cut in half the number of
basa and tra imports. The same
year, Congress passed a law pre-
venting the Vietnamese basa from
being labeled "catfish."
More recently, Louisiana,
Mississippi and Alabama-
where most catfish are farmed-
have issued alerts that call for
strict inspection of some catfish
imports after antibiotics showed
up in some samples. And a,feder-
al law passed that requires sellers
to slap "made in" stickers that
show where fish are caught.

of seafoods, the foreign surge is a
cause for concern.
"Where we go as a globe in terms
of dealing with these issues will
be driven by what's happening in
China," said George Leonard, a
scientist with the Seafood Watch
program at Monterey Bay
Aquarium in California.
While Vietnamese breeds are
often trapped in net-pen systems
that can tax natural resources, the
U.S. fish are raised in closed
ponds that reduce the risk of
spreading disease and have a
minimal environmental impact,
Leonard said.
"We need to work at what we do
here so U.S. practices can be
models," he said during a catfish
conference held in September
at-where else-the Georgia
Aquarium.
The Vietnam Association of
Seafood Exporters and Producers
would not return messages for
comment on this story, but its


president, Ho Quoc Luc, has said
his country has been working to
meet seafood safety standards.
Many seafood eaters can't tell the
difference between the types of
fish. Both are white meats with a
relatively mild flavor and look
enough alike, at least splayed out
on a plate. To experts, though,
there's no comparison.
Steve Martin, a catfish devotee
from Indianapolis, set up a Web
site devoted to American-bred
catfish after a run-in with the
Vietnamese kind at a disappoint-
ing catfish festival in Indiana.
"I just knew it didn't look right.
The fried fillets didn't look right
and they were really thin," he
said, a tinge of disgust in his
voice.
"When you hear catfish, you
think it's U.S. But they were being
served catfish from some dirty
river in Vietnam. That was a real
eye-opener.

Rocks On Alligator Point
Dear Alan,
I am surprised that you are willing to accept repeating the same mis-
takes of the past by endangering the Alligator Point community again
with erosion-inducing rocks that knowingly have contributed to damag-
Sing the only evacuation route for hundreds of residents. To.do this just
for the sake of the money is not only wrong it is counterproductive and
cross-purpose with protecting the road. You know as well as I that rocks'
contribute to erosion more than they provide protection. This is known
r. by experts .everywhere. The tiny rocks,; dirty sand, rebar, rubble and
other unnatural substances currently being placed on the beach are not
permissible by DEP standards and are blocking and endangering access
i and use of both private and public properties and will induce danger-
ous erosion that will destroy,the road as well as turtle nesting grounds.
Furthermore, much of the rocks and rubble, that are now being placed
on the beach are in places where these.rocks did not exist before. :
The risks that you are taking that are further endangering our commu-
nity are unacceptable and will be challenged if continued. I highly sug-
gest that you come over here to see what is taking place and to end and
remove these wrongful actions. Our.community deserves your immedi-
ate attention to this matter before serious damage and potential injuries
happen. Also, please tell me where I can see the construction plans,
FEMA requirements, and DEP permits that you say are allowing these
- actions. Thank you.
,Bill Wargo, MTP #151 and Resident
SAlligator Point, FL 32346
From Alan Pierce ,, . . ,


Dear Bill:


4-' r 4 'lt V


I am aware that you continue to be upset and angry over the reconstruc-
tion activities of the Alligator Point Road. The project that is occurring
on Alligator Point is a FEMA funded road reconstruction. All the work
that is occurring is within the county right-of-way. The contractor is
moving the rocks around so that debris, rubble, rebar can be retrieved
and removed. There might be a temporary placement of construction
material on your property but it is accidental and not permanent. The
finished product will be a reconstructed road within the existing right
of way.


In order for the road to be eligible for future FEMA funding, FEMA is
Requiring the county take steps to protect the road FEMA is requiring
-' that theserprotective steps be taken in association with the road recon-
Sstruction. FEMA, not the county or DEP, but FEMA is requiring that
the existing road be protected with a rock revetment and a concrete cap.,
FEMA is allowing the county engineers to determine a suitable design .
,- for the revetment. That design will not bring more rocks to Alligator,
'' Point, but it does require the county bring i fill, put down a filter fab-
Sric, and relocate the existing rocks. As much of the debris, rebar, and
rubble is being removed as possible. FEMA is requiring that the shoul-
der of the road be stabilized with a concrete cap. This new cap will be
Ssloped and will tie into the existing rocks. All this will be done within
the county right of way. Essentially we are repairing what was there. It
Sis our expectation that all of the rocks will be covered up by the beach'
Srenourishment project. DEP is aware that we intend to leave the rocks
v' there as a final protection for the road, and they.are aware we are.going
to cover them up with sand.-The beach renourishment project is being
'designed that way.
The county had no choice on this. Without ijerforming the work
FEMA said was necessary to protect the road, FEMA said the road
could become ineligible for future FEMA funds if it got damaged
' again..The county can not afford to risk losing FEMA funds. FEMA is
contributing over $1 Million dollars to rebuild the road. If FEMA funds
r were not available, the money would be coming out of the taxpayer's
pocket.
Everyone hopes that the road will never be damaged again, that the
beach renourishment project will provide adequate protection. FEMA
does not agree for two reasons. One, the beach renourishment will not
be done before the 2007 hurricane season so we have one more hurri-
cane season with an exposed road and FEMA is unwilling to let the
road that they paid for be left unprotected for a hurricane season. Two,;
while we all expect the beach renourishment to move forward, as you
know, the local funding.has not been identified, and so the project is not
guaranteed at this time. When I told FEMA that they were adamant
that if the county wanted to keep Alligator Point Road as a FEMA eli-
gible road we had to take steps to protect the road.
I do not like having to continue to disappoint you, but the level of risk
you are willing to assume for the road is greater than the risk the coun-
ty is willing to assume. It is the only road for several hundred houses
Sand I feel compelled to take reasonable precautions to keep the road
from being damaged again.

Gulf Council to Convene its Regularly Scheduled Meeting
in Galveston, Texas
The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (Council) met
November 13-16, 2006 at the San Louis Resort, 5222 Seawall
Boulevard, Galveston, Texas.
After the Council postponed 'deliberations on Joint Reef Fish
Amendment 27/Shrimp Amendment 14 in order to gather more data,
the National Marine Fisheries 'Seirices submitted to the Department of
Commerce a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) to evalu-
ate alternatives to set Gulf of Mexico red snapper total allowable catch
(TAC) and reduce bycatch in the Gulf of Mexico directed and shrimp
trawl fisheries.
Additionally, NMFS intends to transmit an interim rule, which propos-
es the following:
' Sd red snapper TAC at 6.5 million pounds, proportionately reducing
thed"ommercial and recreational quotas


* Reduce the red snapper recreational bag limit to two fish
* Set the:for-hire captain and crew red snapper bag limit to zero,
* S.4qa 13-inch minimum size limit for the commercial fishery to reduce
byitch
SEstablish a target reduction of shrimp trawl bycatch mortality,on red
snapper 50 percent less than the benchmark years of 2001-2003.
The.proposed action would not change the 16-inch minimum recre-
Satin al size limit or alter the April 21 - October 31 recreational.fishing
Sseasn. Dr. Roy Crabtree, Regional Administrator, NMFS, kvill provide
Sthe council'ss Joint Reef Fish/Shrimp Management Committee with
an update on the DEIS and Interim Rule during its Monday afternoon

Ponce de Leon resident Doyle
Ammons has caught plenty of
fish over his 76 years. None of his
fish compare, however, to the
near-record 63-poundbblue catfish
he caught Nov. 6 :from the
S Choctawhatchee River;
Ammons' fish was 48 inches long
and would have almost certainly
been certified as thelnew Florida
record, except for one thing - he
caught his fish on a bush hook,
sometimes called a "limb line." It
is legal to fish with bush hooks or
trotlines, but fish caught by such
methods are not eligible for certi-
fication as new records. Only
record freshwater fish caught by
conventional hook-and-line or
rod-and-reel can be accepted.
His fish weighed 1.5 pounds
more than the recognized state
record blue cat. That fish was
caught by rod-and-reel from
Little Escambia Creek in
Escambia County in 1996.
Despite the fact,his catfish won't
show up in the record books,
Ammons said it was satisfaction
enough to catch the biggest blue
cat ever landed in Florida.
Ammons said his bush hook was
tied to a limber green vine hang-
ing over the edge of the river, a
factor he credits in "wearing
down" the catfish. For bait he
used chunks of bowfin. This was
his second large blue catfish in
the past two months, the other a
55-pounder.

College Football News, Analysis and Prognostications


TiR GRIDIRON GAZETTE
NATIONAL PLAYER OF TiH Wiut
Troy Smith, Quarterback, Ohio State - Smith led the
Buckeyes to the Big Ten Championship, BCS Title game,
and a 12 - 0 regular season record, and ranks 4" nationally
in passing efficiency. He completed 69 percent of his
passes and threw 6 TDs against both Texas and Michigan.
OTHERS RECEIVING CONSIDERATION
Brady Quinn, Quarterback, Notre Dame - Quinn
completed 63 percent of his passes for 3,300 yards and 35
TDs and only 5 INTs, but he couldn't lead the Irish to wins
in their two biggest games against Michigan and USC.
Steve Slaton, Running Back, West Virginia - The West
Virginia sophomore gained 1,733 yards and scored 16 TDs
on his way to leading the Mountaineers to a 10 - 2 record.
Slaton averaged over 7 yards per carry, and, along with
Arkansas' Darren McFadden, will be the leading Heisman
candidate heading into the 2007 season.
Darren McFadden, Running Back, Arkansas -
McFadden, a sophomore, finished the regular season ranked
101~ nationally in total rushing yards and rushing yards per
game, and 4"' among running backs in touchdowns.
Ray Rice, Running Back, Rutgers - Rice, also a
sophomore, averaged 135 yards per game on his way
to gaining 1,624 yards and scoring 19 TDs. He was the
number one reason for Rutgers' Phoenix-like rise from the
ashes.
THe E iRjlI I GAZETTE
NifAL COACH f THE t^1~
Greg Schiano, Rutgers - When Schiano took over in
2001, Rutgers had a .495 all-time.winning percentage and
was the laughingstock of college football. After going 18
- 39 in his first five years at the helm, he led the Scarlet
Knights to a 10 - 2 record,,including a 28-- 25 victory
over then No. 3 Louisville, and a second place finish in
the Big East. There's nothing harder than overcoming a,
losing culture, and that's why Schiano is The, Gridiron
Gazette Coach of the Year.
OTHERS RECEIVING CONSIDERATION
Art Briles, Houston - Led Houston to a 10 - 3 record
and the C-USA Championship after going 6 - 6 in 2005.
The Cougars'beat Oklahoma State 34 - 25, and came
within one point of upsetting Miami (FI.).
Lloyd Carr, Michigan - Carr led the Wolverines to the
No. 2 spot in the rankings and second place in the Big
Ten. Their most impressive win was a 47 - 21 drubbing
of Notre Dame in South Bend, and their most impressive
loss was when they fell 42 - 39 in Columbus.
Jim Grobe, Wake Forest - Despite being projected to
finish last in the ACC Atlantic Division, Grobe led his
squad to a program best 11 - 2 record, the ACC Atlantic
Division title, and the ACC Championship.
June Jones, Hawaii - The Warriors finished second in
the WAC to Boise State, and led the nation in scoring
offense with an eye-popping 49 points per game, ten
points per game better than the second-ranked scoring
offense.
Bronco Mendenhall, BYU - The Cougars finished 8 - 0
in the Mountain West and 10 - 2 overall with wins in
their last nine straight contests. Not bad considering they
went 6 - 6 in 2005.
Houston Nutt, Arkansas -After going 9 - 13 over the
previous two seasons, Nutt entered the 2006 campaign
on the hot seat, and it looked like he was in trouble when
the Razorbacks opened the season with a 50 - 14 loss to
USC. But he ended up leading the Hogs to ten straight
wins and the SEC West title before falling to Florida in
the SEC Championship.
Chris Peterson, Boise State - In his first year at the helm
of the Boise State program, Peterson finished the regular
season 12 - 0, including a 42 - 14 win over the same
Oregon State team that beat USC.
Bob Stoops, Oklahoma - After losing All-American
running back Adrian Peterson for the season to a
broken collarbone, Stoops rallied the Sooners to seven
straight wins, an 11 - 2 overall record, and the Big 12
Championship.

College Football News and Notes
In division I-AA playoff action, Appalachian
State beat Montana State 38 - 17 and will face
Youngstown State at home next. The Penguins took
care of Illinois State 28 -21... Montana dominated
Southern Illinois 20 - 3 last weekend, and will now
square off against Massachusetts. The Minutemen
defeated regional rival New Hampshire 24 - 17...
The eight coaches who have been fired as of the
date of this publication will receive a total of $13
million in severance, according to an analysis by
USA Today....Washington quarterback Johnny
DuRocher had a brain tumor removed last week.
The tumor was found to be benign, and DuRocher
is expected to make a full recovery...Mark West
was convicted of theft and fraud for bilking 250
customers who bought tickets to the 2005 Ohio
State-Michigan game, and was sentenced to two
years and 10 months in prison.


f you smell smoke, it's probably because the BCS computers burst into flames
with all the cogitating they had to do last Saturday. After all, their nightmare
scenario came true when UCLA upset then No. 2 USC 13 - 9. The Trojan loss
meant that the powers that be in college football were up deep into the night and
all day Sunday trying to figure out who to send up against No. 1 Ohio State for the
national championship of college football.
The question that had to be answered: Should it be 11 - 1 Michigan, who, despite
losing to the Buckeyes 42 - 39 a few weeks back, might still be the second best team
in college football and give their archest rival the best game? Or should it be 12 - 1
Florida, who played the meanest schedule in the country, and is the champion of the
toughest conference in college football?
The Gators got the nod. And why not? They handled the No. 8 Razorbacks 38 - 28
in the SEC Championship, holding the most vaunted rushing attack in the SEC to 132
yards, 100 yards less than it averaged all year long, and they marched through a snake
pit of a schedule, their only loss coming on the Plains of Alabama to No. 11 Auburn.
There will be plenty of grousing from folks in the upper middle, yest who think that
Michigan deserves a rematch, and there will be moaning from colf.ge football fans
everywhere about the flawed system of determining a champion. But when all is said
and done, we'll know whether or not the BCS made the right choice. It will be this
simple: If Florida beats Ohio State, or loses by three points or less, we'll know for
certain that they were the right choice to face the Buckeyes. If Florida loses by three
points or more, we'll know that they were the wrong choice.
With all the focus on the top of the BCS, lets not forget that there were some other
championship games last weekend. On the Banks of the St. John's-River, Wake Forest
knocked down Georgia Tech 9 - 6 in a game that was about as easy on the eyes
as Eleanor Roosevelt. Demon Deacon freshman quarterback Riley Skinner was as
cool as cucumbersoup, completing 14 of 25 passes for 201 yards, while his senior
counterpart Reggie Ball contributed to the contest's ugliness by going 9 of 29 for 129
yards and two interceptions.
Oklahoma won the Big 12 Championship Game, beating Nebraska 21 - 7, and will
face undefeated Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl. Rutgers' dream of playing in a big-
money bowl came to an end when it lost at.West Virginia 41 - 39 iniovertime. And
Houston took care of Southern Miss 34 - 20 to win the C-USA Championship.
We'll begin prognosticating on the bowl games next week, be sure to check back
with us then.

Bonehead Prognostication of The Year
#18 WAKE FOREST AT FLORIDA STATE
Florida State is looking up at Wake Forest in the ACC
Atlantic standings. Now Jim Grobe, the certainACC Coach-
of-the-Year, takes his Demon Deacons to Tallahassee to see
how they measure up. A few weeks ago, Wake Forest would
have been the trendy pick, but the Seminole offense has
new life with Xavier Lee under center, and Bobby Bowden
and his squad will find a way to get it done on Saturday.
Florida State 28 - Wake Forest 23
ACTUAL SCORE: Wake Forest 30- Florida State 0
'Genius Prognostication of The Year
FLORIDA STATE AT MARYLAND
Bobby Bowden seems to be living in a past where his
Seminoles were so much more talented than the rest of
the ACC that they didn't really need to be coached. These
days most of the other teams in the league are similarly
endowed with good players, and that's why Florida State
is struggling. The question is whether Maryland is one of
them. They're probably not, but Ralph Friedgen is a heck
of a coach, and that's why the Terrapins will keep it close.
Maryland 27 - Florida State 25
ACTUAL SCORE: Maryland 27- Florida State 24

Tales From The Gridiron
The 1929 Rose Bowl was the site of one of the
most famous screw ups in the history of college
football, or sports, for that matter. Georgia Tech
and California were playing in front of 70,000,
when Golden Bears' captain Roy Reigels picked
up a Yellow Jacket fumble, and, in a moment
of directional dyslexia never before witnessed,
raced toward his own goal line. The crowd
roared so loudly that Reigels couldn't hear his
coaches and teammates yelling, "Stop, Roy!
Turn around! Wrong way, Roy!" Reigels' own
teammate chased him down and tackled him six
inches from the California goal line. Cal tried to
punt the ball out of the hole that Reigels had put
them in, but Tech blocked the punt for a safety.
The Yellow Jackets won the game 8 - 7. The
Chicago Tribune wrote that Reigels had entered
the "goat hall of fame."

THE CONCERNED CITIZENS

OF FRANKLIN COUNTY

NEED YOU!

WHO WE ARE:
We are people from across Franklin County who have joined together in a citizen-
led, citizen-financed group to create positive change.

WHAT WE STAND FOR:
More open, more affordable, more efficient, more responsive county government.

WHY WE CAME TOGETHER:
Franklin County faces a crisis. Property values are dropping. Construction has
stalled. The seafood industry is shrinking. Affordable housing is disappearing.
Jobs are at risk. Yet the county continues to tax and spend excessively.

WHAT WE WILL DO:
CCFC will study county government, with particular emphasis on taxing, budget-
ing and spending. We also will look at county services and how they are deliv-
ered. We will get active in county government in order to stay up-to-date on
issues and decisions. We will report our findings and conclusions to the people
of Franklin County, and act on those findings if appropriate.

WHY WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE:
We will arm ourselves with facts and analysis that will be accurate, timely and
powerful. We will present this information for the consideration of our fellow citi-
zens.
We will speak as a cohesive and powerful collective voice that will be heard.

WHAT'S NEXT:
CCFC's work is underway. We will report to you in the coming weeks and
months through advertisements, letters, news releases and a soon-to-be-estab-
lished website.

WHAT WE NEED:
WE NEED YOU! Please help. Your donations of time and money will help sup-
port this needed work. As part of this group, you will be an important member of
an organization committed to better government.

HOW TO JOIN:
Send your name, address, telephone number and contributions to:

CONCERNED CITIZENS OF FRANKLIN COUNTY, INC.
P.O. BOX 990


EASTPOINT, FL 32328
