Mayor Van Johnson speaks to the crowd after accepting award.

Town is named a Distinctive Destination

Chronicle Staff
Apalachicola has been nam-
ed one of the nation's Dozen
Distinctive Destinations for 2008
by the National Trust for
Historic Preservation.
The award is a major accom-
plishment for the city, and
should help attract attention of
tourists across the country who
are looking for a unique vacation
The announcement was

made Thursday, Feb. 7, on the :
front porch of the Gibson Inn.
Karen Nicholas, represent-.
ing the National Trust,. said.
Apalachi-cola has "worked very'
hard to preserve your traditional'
economy" and has done a good
job of "keeping your town look-
ing the way it used to."
In accepting the award,
Apalachicola Mayor Van
Johnson praised past efforts to
maintain traditional architectur-

Lombardi Property at Two
The item was on the
agenda for the previous Coun-
ty Commission meeting, but
was postponed in hopes that
the county could negotiate a
lower price. However, the sell-
ers would not come down
anymore on the price of about
$1.5 million. They did, how-
ever, agree to pay up to
$10,000 of the dosing costs.
The county envisions

using the land as a working
waterfront park that could be
used by workers in the local
seafood industry, as well as a
tourist attraction for visitors
interested in seeing the work-
force in action.
Commissioner Russell
Crofton said he supports the
proposal, but initially had
concerns about financing the

What's happening in Eastpoint

and on St. George Island

Question of the week: Next
time you are at the mall in
Tallahassee or Panama City,
notice how many babies there
are. There are babies all over the
place; babies in strollers, babies
in their mother's arms, babies in
their father's arms, babies every-
where. Then look around for
pregnant women. There are usu-
ally very few, if any, in sight.
Now where in the name of good-
ness did all those babies come
from? And why haven't the con-
spiracy theorists caught up with
this one yet?
It has been a long time since
I have done much fishing. Not
that I don't want to go fishing....
I do. It's just that the fishing laws
here are so confusing and there
are so many of them that my fear
of running afoul of the FWC has
overcome my desire for a fine fat
filet sizzling in the pan. I finally
got my chance, however, on
Tuesday. I went fishing with an
expert who promised to keep me
out of the clutches of the local
game and fish enforcers. Jeff
Ilardi of Eastpoint broadcasts
fishing news on Forgotten Coast
TV and understands the maze of
rules better than most. Jeff took
me -up the Little St. Marks, the
St. Marks and the East Rivers to
a spot he said would be good for
sheepshead and a hybrid bass
that looks a lot like striped bass.
Now, I'm used to taking big-
mouth, small-mouth and bream
from northern streams but I was
unprepared for these battling
beasts that kept trying to pull me
right in with them. I am a con-
vert! Especially after tasting
those firm, delicately flavored
filets the next day. I even forgot
the sunburned nose!,
Jeff for another great way to
spend all that free time I almost
The Cape St. George light-
house continues to rise. As it
goes up, people have started to
question whether it will be taller
than the water tower. The light-
house will be 77 feet tall when it
is finished, and the water tower,

FI F40 0, 14 f4&4-

By Tom Loughridge
according to Water Manage-
ment, is 90 feet tall. The light-
house will be 13 feet shorter, but
when you think of its height that
way, matched to the water tower,
it is going to be a truly imposing
structure and a real attraction on
the Island. A few other statistics
on the lighthouse: there will be
about 160,000 bricks in the fin-
ished building, 20,000 of which
are from the original building
and will be placed inside the.
structure where they can be seen.
The wall is 12 bricks thick at the
base and will taper to six bricks
thick at the top.
Memberships are available
in The St. George Lighthouse
Association at different levels
from individual memberships to
Lifetime Patron memberships.
Your dues will go toward helping
to rescue the light and rebuild
the lighthouse keeper's house. If
interested, contact The St.
George Lighthouse Association,
201 Bradford Street, St. George
Island, FL 32328 or e-mail at .
According to an e-mail from
Terry Kemp, the Lighthouse
Association is still short of funds
by about $60,000. The bulk of
this expense is the heart pine spi-
ral staircase. To help meet the
cost of the staircase, the
Lighthouse Association Board of
Directors voted to offer "spon-
sorships" for the individual
stairs. Sponsorships of the stairs
are being offered for $250 per
stair, with the exception of the
first and last stair, which will cost
$500. Each sponsor will be hon-

ored with a commemorative
plaque on the stair. There are 91
stairs, and you may request a
stair by number. Reserve your
stair now, and you'll be forever
recognized as a part of this his-
toric effort. The announcement
of the "Steps to the Light
Campaign" has already generat-
ed great excitement, and the
stairs are going fast. Send an e-
mail to fullmoon.sgi@fair- for more information.
I had a question from a read-
er last week about the use of golf
carts on Gulf Beach Drive
expressing some confusion about
the right way to get to an exempt
road. The roads on St. George
Island have been made exempt
from the law that forbids their
use on public roadways except
on Gulf Beach Drive. They still .
can't be used legally on that road
because of the safety issues with
the heavy traffic there. However,
according to law enforcement
authorities, it is legal to cross
Gulf Beach Drive with a golf
cart. Therefore, if your driveway
is not right on an exempt road,
you can travel to the nearest
exempt road on Gulf Beach.
Drive without getting in trouble.
Remember, there are age mini-
mums that will be enforced and
no motored vehicles of any kind
are allowed on the bike and
walking path.
And an anonymous thought
to add to this ridiculous contro-
versy about evolution:
"We ain't what we should
We ain't what we gonna be,
But at least we ain't what we
Keep those e-mails and let-
ters coming, folks. If you have

The Franklin Chronicle

Our newest addition
You may have noticed in recent weeks a new column about
what's going on in Eastpoint and on St. George Island.
The column, called From the Island, is written weekly by Tom
Loughridge, a longtime correspondent for The Chronicle.
Tom is a retired science teacher who lives on St. George Island
with wife Janyce and two dogs, or as he calls them, "two marvelous
mutts." Loughridge taught physics,
Earth science and oceanography at
Apalachicola High School from 1990 to
1995. He has been a contributor to The
Franklin Chronicle since 1992.
He says he keeps himself out of
serious trouble with his duties as a
Chronicle correspondent, actor and
board member of the Panhandle
Players, member of the Bay Area
T* E Choral Society and various activities at
the St. George Island First United
Methodist Church. He is also a member
By Russell Roberts of the Iron Men of St. George Island..
Tom says he loves the process of
researching stories and meeting and talking with the people involved
in the stories he reports. He adds that he is pleased to have the oppor-
tunity to write a weekly column.
To contact him, send an e-mail to, or
call him at (850) 927-2899.
Tom joins correspondent Laurel Newman-who writes Around
Carrabelle-in writing weekly columns about our communities. Now
we hope to find someone to write a similar weekly rundown of what's
happening in Apalachicola. If you're interested, give me a call at 670-
4377 or send an e-mail to Just promise
not to laugh out loud when I tell you what it pays.
Another longtime Chronicle correspondent, Harriett Beach,
resumed covering County Commission meetings last week. Part of
The Chronicle's mission is to bring thorough and timely coverage of
local government. Readers expect that from us and we're trying hard
to meet that expectation.
One more hew feature this week is called In The Spotlight. You'll
find it on page 6. We hope to use this format to highlight local non-
profit organizations that are working hard to make Franklin County
an even better place to live. If you're affiliated with a local nonprofit,
send me an e-mail and I'll send you a form so you can participate. It's
We'll be unveiling a few other additions in the next few weeks, so
keep reading. I've said before in this space that improving The
Chronicle is a 52-week project. But the fact is that after those 52 weeks
are behind us, we'll keep looking for things to do better.

At random: Last September, I bought an Alltel cell phone for
about $20. When I got my bill, I discovered they put a $5 per month
charge on my bill for "insurance," which I had not asked for. I can-
celed the insurance. Then in December, I bought a second Alltel
phone for hde Chronicle phone fine. This time, when I got my bill I dis-
covered a $10 per month charge for "free" text messaging, which I
never asked for and wouldn't have the need or know-how to do any-
way. I canceled. Do you see a trend here? The lesson is if you have a
cell phone, check your bill for those little uninvited add-ons.

I bumped into The Wefing's Man the other day
at Burger King. I never knew his name, but every
oysterman, shrimper, or -seafood worker who
worked this bay for any length of time in the last 40
years in Franklin County will recognize this fellow
as I speak about him here in this story. This gentle-
man worked at Wefing's Marine Hardware in
Apalachicola for 37
years. Today he is in
his seventies and still

The Wefing's Man
worked at this store for 37 years. He knew every
part number of every bearing, seal, prop or carbu-
retor on every outboardmotor manufactured in the
last hundred years. I may be exaggerating slightly
but his memory for all these numbers did amaze
My wife and I would walk into that store with
a greasy outboard motor part in our hand and The
Wefing's Man would take one look at it and say;
"Why that's the bottom bearing on a 1965 Johnson
25 horse. The part number on that is 123-345-654-
971-674327A. I'll go look in the back and see if we
have one in stock."
He would return in a few minutes and if you
were really lucky he would say; "Well, today is
your day. Not only do we have that part but it was
ordered in 1967 so you get the 1967 sale price."
"Well we mark up the parts for sale in the store
when they come in. This part came into this store
in 1967 and that's the price that we sell it for

"Why not? We marked it up when it came in
and we paid for it when it came in. So why should-

stand our boat up on edge and scrape and paint the
bottom. We bought this giant block and tackle that
the store stocked in 1946 for $29.35. There were
other block and tackles laying around next to the

On another occasion we trucked our 1965
Johnsoo over there 1 pieces. He took one look at
the motor arid $aid: "You got your bottori crank-
shaft seal on the top."
"How can you tell?" I asked.
"It's easy can read the number on that seal
right there on the top and-it's the number :of the
bottom seal." H e then explained to us how to
switch everything around. We had bought the
motor secondhand. It had the seals on upside
down. We followed his instructions and we were
back to work the following day.
When I left the Burger King, The Wefing's
Man remarked that I had made his day-by remem-
bering him. All the way home to Eastpoint I keep
thinking how many times he made my day through
the years. I was very happy to finally return the
Yes sir, he made my day many, many times. He
was always a smiley face, always had time to deal
with our problem, he had tons of advice and
instructions-and all at no extra charge. I never left
that marine hardware store and my friend The
Wefing's Man feeling that I had been overcharged.
Money was always dear but I always got my
money's worth at Wefing's. And that Wefing's Man
was a big part of that feeling. That's a feeling I
don't often get anymore.
If you have a Wefing's Man type fellow in your
employ, I hope that you recognize him or her and
that you realize just how lucky you are. His kind is
special. Whatever you're paying him, it's a bar-
gain-believe me.

Weems, I
Discussions between Talla-
hassee Memorial Hospital and
Weems Memorial Hospital con-
tinue, according to the chair of
the Weems hospital board,
Gayle Dodds.
"In December, the board
met with TMH's vice president
and chief operating officer Evan
Dillard and talked about what
the structure of a formal rela-
tionship between the two sys-
tems might look like," Dodds
Prior to the talks in
Apalachicola, officials of both
systems met in Tallahassee to
explore possibilities. The latest
exchange came in a letter from
TMH dated February 4, sent to
Chuck Colvert, CEO of Weems
Memorial, and Russell Crofton,
Franklin County Commissioner.
' Theqetter is a "non-binding
letter of intent," outlining ways
in which TMH proposes to assist
Weems if a formal agreement
were signed. The discussions
between the two have centered
on management services and

'MH continue talks

additional support for physician
-and medical staff personnel at
the new clinic and urgent care
center to be created in Carrabelle
and .at the hospital in
Apalachicola, Colvert said.
"TMH is home to a family
practice residency program
which trains physicians for prac-
tice in rural areas. Some of these
physicians would rotate to
Franklin County and increase
the range of medical services
available here," said Colvert.
He added that a closer con-
nection between TMH's ER
physicians and Franklin County
ambulance personnel would
result in immediate benefits to
patients being transported and
admitted to TMH if Weems
entered into an agreement with
Tallahassee Memorial.
In the letter recently sent by
TMH, the financial structure
proposed is for "Weems to pay
TMH a monthly payment suffi-
cient to cover the salaries of the
CEO and CFO employed by
TMH (who are acceptable to the

Weems hospital board) and an
additional payment for manage-
ment services rendered." The
Weems hospital board would
continue its oversight function
for the county. It also would be
responsible for the expenditure
of dollars from enactment of the
ordinance recently passed in
Franklin County levying a one-
cent sales tax for health care.
"Benefits to Weems from a
collaboration with TMH would
mean reduced costs of supplies
and pharmaceuticals through
joint purchasing and increased
levels of financial management
not usually available to small
hospitals," added COO Dillard.
"The letter of intent will
expire upon execution of a bind-
ing agreement, if any, or on
February 29, 2008, whichever
occurs first," according to CEO
Colvert went on to say that
he didn't think the deadline
would be an obstacle if discus-
sions went beyond the February
29 date.

Wedding Announcement
On Sunday, Feb. 3, Jada Chason and Christopher Petsch exchanged wedding
vows at the pavilion in Lafayette Park on the Apalachicola Bay, under clear bright
skies reflected in the still waters of the bayou and the bay.
The ceremony was performed by the bride's aunt, Laurie Richards, who also
helped plan the event. Chason was escorted and given away by her stepfather, Chris
Chason. Her maid-of-honor was sister Kristin Chason. Also in attendance were
mother and stepfather Julie and Jerry A. Alford, sister Kandle Chason, brothers
George and Chris Etheredge, uncle George and grandmother Juanita Prett, cousin
Andrew, and many small cousins, all of Eastpoint.
Present for the groom were parents Lester Petsch, of Atlanta and Lisa Munson
of Carrabelle, Aunt Pam Daniell of Atlanta, and best man Joey Banks of Eastpoint.
The official wedding reception and welcome home celebration will be held on
Chris's return fr0m Iraq later this year.

Riders to

be in CGJ

The Patriot Guard Riders
will be joining in this year's
Camp Gorden Johnston Days
Parade on March 8th in down-
town Carrabelle. This will be
their first appearance at one of
the CJG parades.
The Patriot Guard Riders
are a diverse group of individu-
als from across the nation. Other
than motorcycles, these people
have one thing in common: "An
unwavering respect for those
who risk their very lives for
America's freedom and securi-
These patriotic motorcycle
enthusiasts attend the funerals of
fallen American heroes-at the
invitation of the family. Their
mission is to show respect for the
soldier, his family, and the com-
munity in which he or she lived.
They also shield the families
from protesters who came to the
funeral to present a political
agenda. They always do this in a
nonviolent manner and with no
disruption to the service or the
family. This past year the Patriot
Guard Riders have assisted in
placing wreathes on the graves at
Arlington, as well as sending
American flags to any soldier
presently serving in Iraq, or any
war torn country, who requests
one. 359 flags had been sent as of
the 14th of December, 2007.
These riders will be lining
the parade route on March 8, at
intervals, to show respect for
America's veterans.
There is still time to have
your organization in the parade.

Weekly economic update for
the week of February 11, 2008

Quote of the week
"Ignorance is never better than knowledge." -Enrico Fermi
Senate OKs stimulus plan
Thursday, the eagerly awaited economic stimulus package made
its way out of the Senate and toward the Oval Office. The final ver-
sion promises tax rebates of $600-1,200
to the majority of taxpayers, plus an
extra $300 per child. Disabled veterans
and those living on Social Security will
get $300 checks. Phase-outs kick in at
$75,000 AGI for individuals and
$150,000 AGI for couples.
Service sector shrinks
The Institute- for Supply
l~A, Management's January service sector
St index registered 44.6, the first reading
Sponsored by below 50 in nearly five years. Anything
Peter F Orowell, CFP under 50 is a sign of contraction. While
three service industries grew during the
month, 14 industries contracted. After the news, the Dow Jones
Industrial Average fell 370 points on Tuesday.
62 economists say: recession 50/50
A look at the median estimates of 62 economists polled by
Bloomberg News last week: 50% odds of recession in 2008, the fed-
eral funds rate at 2.5% by June, 0.5% 1Q GDP, 1.0% 2Q GDP and
1.7% total growth for the year. A recession "could have started
already. or is likely to start very soon," commented Swiss Re chief
U.S. economist Kurt Karl. "We're slipping."
Bond prices up, stocks down
On Wall Street, 2-year notes gained for the eighth straight week.
Treasuries have returned 2.3% in 2008, according to a Merrill Lynch
& Co. index; the government-backed securities haven't started a year
so strongly since 1993. It was another tough week for stocks; last
week's gains were erased. Friday, Bank of America Corp. and
JPMorgan Chase & Co. led banks and brokerages to their biggest
weekly descent since 2002. At Friday's close, the Dow was down
16.27% from a peak of 14,164.53 on October 9, and the S&P 500 was
down.17.57% from its October 9 high of 1,565.15.

The Franklin Chronicle

Biker peddles backward to

bring message forward
Chronicle Correspondenttj I

Curan Wright has found a
new and unique way to draw
attention to his message for
youth across the United States.
Unlike many who travel across
the length and breadth of the
nation to draw attention to a
cause, Wright, 36, has chosen to
use a modified bicycle that trav-
els in a forward motion, but only
when the bicycle faces back-
wards, so the rider must ride the
vehicle facing backward over the
It certainly makes a note-
worthy entrance, as the young
man appears to be approaching
until he passes by and it becomes
apparent that he is pedaling the
bike backwards to achieve for-
ward motion. "I get a lot of dou-
ble-takes on the road," Curan
said, "but it opens discussions
pretty fast."
Curan entered Carrabelle
late Tuesday, February 5, in the
evening, in time to get to a com-
plimentary room being held for
him at the Carrabelle Bed and
Breakfast, courtesy owners Skip
and Kathy Frink.
"I like small towns the best,"
Curan said during his interview
the following morning. "The
people are friendlier, over-all
more tolerant and open minded
than big-city residents, and not
offended to say they believe in
Jesus and acknowledge His pres-
ence and place in our lives."
Wright said he had the
opportunity Tuesday evening to
met some Carrabelle residents.
"I went out walking on the
streets," he said, "and I met a lot
of young people in town. They
are my target audience, and I got
an encouraging reception from
Wright's basic message for
young people is to avoid the use
.of hard drugs and needles,
always practice safe sex, and to
maintain a relationship with
Jesus as Lord. "I tell them to
always consult with the Lord
when faced with sins that come
as temptations or dangerous
choices," he said. "My own per-
sonal goal in this is to make a dif-
ference in the world, one person
at a time."
Wright's itinerary "squares"
the nation. He began in Venice,
FL, westward through Mobile,
New Orleans a side trip to his
former home in Wichita, KS to
rest, north through Nebraska,
South Dakota, North Dakota,
Montana, Washington State, and
Oregon to Venice, CA, and back
to Florida.
"Out of all the places I have
been," he said, the deputy sher-
iffs in the State of Florida have to
be the best I have encountered.
In fact, they have been a real
blessing. They don't bother me;
have in fact helped me a lot.
They don't bother me for my use
of my 'medicine'; they know I
don't abuse it, but need it to con-
trol pain and help me eat."
(Wright refers to medically
prescribed marijuana as "his
Wright is candid regarding
his own HIV status, which is
advanced enough to cause him
serious pain, weakness, and
appetite difficulties, but he is
firm in his declaration that
"since the Lord pulled me out of
the depths and gave me the abili-

ty to do this, this is what he put
me here to do, to spread this
message. I want to do this before
I die."
He is also firm in his belief
that the medicinal. benefits of
marijuana are also a gift of God.
"It's bad enough waking up
every day knowing that because
of my bad choices in youth I am
facing an early, painful death,
but I know that Jesus gave us this
remedy as a medicine to enable
us to eat, to sleep, and ease our
He is a strong proponent of
legalization, and as had many
encounters with fatal cancer in
his lifetime; his best friend died
of leukemia at a young age, and
his mother is currently suffering
a lingering death from breast
The plight of the many
thousands of homeless people
across the country is also includ-
ed in his message, and the gov-

ernment attitude of non-caring
will generate another call upon
the duty of the government to do
their duty in caring for this seg-
ment of the population.
S Message delivered, he
mounts his ride, and after a one-
night extension of his stay in
Carrabelle, staying in another
complimentary room at the
Georgian to avoid predicted
heavy weather, he headed off on
the next leg of his journey, part-
ing with the declaration, "Last
night, I prayed to the Lord,
'Lord, grant me clear-the-path
weather.' He rode off on a
bright, cloudless, beautiful day to
continue to "make a difference,

Bob Milne draws capacity crowds

Chronicle Correspondent
Did I somehow just get a
serious education while imm-
ensely enjoying myself?
A capacity audience was
delighted with the music of Bob
Milne at the Dixie Theatre on
Saturday and Sunday. Milne,
who was designated a "National
Treasure" by the Librarian of
Congress in 2004, presented over
two hours of ragtime, barrel-
house, blues and backroom bal-
lads interspersed with comments
on everything from the origins of
the musical styles to the perform-
ers that made them known.
He began with the "Stack
O'Lee Blues" and rambled
through a variety of musical
styles peculiar to early 20th cen-
tury barrooms. His playing was
sometimes the soft sweet sound
of the blues, lulling the senses
into a gentle cocoon of relax-
ation before building up to the
loud, sensuous, driving rhythms
of barrelhouse piano. There is no
way you could lose interest or
become apathetic to the show
when you didn't know from one
moment to the next which part
of your musical, memory was
going to be stirred or what feel-
ings were going to be kindled. A

performer with a great under-
standing of the varieties of
music, Milne was able to segue
directly from "Malaguena" into
"Tiger Rag" without missing a
beat. He demonstrated a piano
roll recording of "When You
and I Were Young, Maggie" that
was played in five different styles
and when asked about his own
compositions, he played "The
Ragged Time Music Box,"
demonstrating how Mozart
might have composed ragtime.

"the rarest
and most arcane of all ragtime
compositions, found in a locked
Viennese vault." The composi-

Viennese style with majestic
chords and complex rhythms

phed into... "M-I-C, K-E-Y, M-
O-U-S-E" If you have never

called it an "excellent perform-
ance" and said they, "Enjoyed it
just as much the second time
around. We saw it last year also."
Dixie Partington said this
was the ninth year Milne had
returned to the Dixie Theatre
and he was always a welcome
and popular performer.
Milne's musical background
started as a child playing the vio-
lin but he grew into other forms
of music and as a young man
played French horn in highly
rated symphony orchestras. He
says he found himself after per-
formances in saloons where the
patrons loved to sing so he start-
ed playing the piano for them
and had so much fun he never

it the Dixie
quit. For more than 25 years he
played six or seven nights a
week, five to eight hours a night.
He has played on concert stages
on many continents, in many
countries, and before dignitaries
and heads of state around the
globe. Last year He played in
Zurich and Okinawa, among
other places. He has written sev-
eral books, including "The
Journeyman Piano Player" and
"The Dissection of Anton
Probst," as well as a collection of
poems. Milne is also a composer,
having written more than 40
piano rags, a violin suite, and
others. His humor shows
through even in his "serious"
music. His "Concerto No. 1 for
Ragtime Piano and Orchestra" is
full of syncopation, hunting
melodies, lively dances, bizarre
twists (a bagpipe reel in the sec-
ond movement) and thundering
rhythmic passages.
Truly the program was
enjoyed by all as evidenced by
the standing applause. We just
did not want to come down and
go home. Thankfully, his music
and books are available to the
public. For an online store, log
on to for a
list of his recordings and books.

Workshop for women
FWC will offer three work-
shops in 2008 for women who
want to spend a weekend learn-
ing a variety of outdoor skills.
The first Becoming an
Outdoors-Woman workshop will
be March 28-30 at the Ocala
Conservation Center, 7325 N.E.
170 Ave., in Silver Springs on
Lake Eaton, in the Ocala
National Forest, about 20 miles
east of Ocala. The second
workshop will be in October at
the Wallwood Boy Scout, Camp
23 Wallwood, BSA Drive in
Quincy. The third workshop
will be in November at Pine
Jog's Everglades Youth Conser-
vation Camp in the J.W Corbett
Wildlife Management Area,
west of West Palm Beach.
These are rustic summer camp
facilities with basic, modern
amenities, and the lodging is dor-
mitory style, with meals served
in the cafeteria. Sessions will
begin Friday afternoon and end
Sunday with lunch.
The FWC invites women, 18
and older, to attend the work-
shops to learn or improve their
outdoors skills and enjoy a few
recreational activities. In four,
3-hour sessions, workshops
teach skills associated with hunt-
ing/shooting, fishing and non-
consumptive activities, such as
canoeing and camping, at all lev-
els of physical activity.
The Becoming an Outdoors-
Woman program offers a fun
and supportive atmosphere to
experiment and enjoy the cama-
raderie of others who want to
learn about Florida's great out-
doors. Although it is designed
with women in mind, the camp
is open to anyone who wants to
learn in a comfortable, non-
threatening, non-competitive,
hands-on atmosphere. The
camp's instructors strive to make
participants feel at ease.
The cost is $150. However,
partial scholarships are available
for low-income, first-time partic-
ipants. Workshops are limited to
100 participants on a first-come,
first-served basis.
Session topics include intro-
ductory courses in bass-, pan-
and fly-fishing; handgun shoot-
ing and hunting; shooting sports;
and shotgun shooting and hunt-
ing. For information call 561-

The two men decided to
document The Boston Red Sox
season by sitting next to each
other at Fenway Park, e-mailing
each other their post-game

games. They never could have
predicted, or perhaps even dared
dream, that they would write

How to paint over wallpaper

Dear Jane,
I have this hideous wallpa-
per throughout the bottom part
of my house that I've been living
with for ten years and I really
don't want to go through the has-
sle of taking it dowfi. Is there a
way that I can just paint over it?
Suzanne R.
Dear Suzanne,
We feel your pane! You've
been living with wallpaper
you've hated for ten years. But,
you're finally going to DO some-
thing about it! Good for you!
Then you look around the
room and see just how much
wallpaper there is to remove.
You've heard the rumors, the
myths, the stories about how
labor intensive removing wallpa-
per can be. Don't let that stop
you, because we've got GREAT
news: You may not need to
remove it at all!
Painting over wallpaper is
possible. In some cases, even the
professionals will opt that over
removing it. Good examples
would be wallpaper that has
been applied to plaster walls or
over unprimed drywall.
Estimate Time: 3 to 5
hours, depending on wall size
Shopping list & Materials:
Clean sponge
Plastic bucket
Lightweight surfacing
compound (otherwise known as
"Spackle")-you'll probably only
need a small container unless
there are a great deal of problem
areas to cover.
One piece of 220 grit sand
paper (also referred as "fine")

Things you should already have
in your home:
Clock radio or portable
Screwdriver, flat head
Utility knife or razor blade
Before getting started:
Make sure the surface is in
good condition and is smooth.
To get the best results, check to
make sure the wallpaper is
securely attached to the wall and
that all the seams are close
together and firmly attached. If
it's not, you can use a bit of wall-
paper paste (also known as adhe-
sive, glue or our favorite-"stuff
that sticks wallpaper to the
wall") to stick it in place.
Next, paint a test patch area
to see if the wallpaper will hold -
don't skip this step! If it dries and
the wallpaper stays smooth, then
you're ready to get started. If the
wallpaper break away,
that could be an indication that
the wallpaper is just too old and
brittle. In this case, unless you're
going for a really unique textured
U U- -

look, you're probably going to
have to remove it.
OK, are you ready? Great!
Let's get started.
Start by wiping down your
walls thoroughly with a damp
sponge-wallpaper paste dries
clear and, like most glues, can
cause problems for paint to stick
to it. Besides removing old glue,
you want to make sure thd wall-
paper is free of other dust and
grime. BUT: Make sure the wall-
paper is dry before taking the
next steps!
Go to the circuit breaker
panel and turn off the poier to
the room you pla.b Qi'a king
in. Hopefully, your circuit break-
ers are already labeled (so you
know which breaker belongs to
each room) to make this easy. If
not, we suggest plugging in a
clock radio or boom box and put
the volume up high enough so
that you can hear- it from the
breaker box and can tell when it
shuts off. (It's a whole heck-of a
lot easier than going back and
forth to check each time). Check
all of the switches and plugs to
be certain before proceeding, as
some rooms are covered by more
than one circuit breaker.
Using your flathead screw-
driver, now remove all of the
swith/outlet covers from all of
the walls that you want to work.
Once you've done this, cover or
"mask" the outlets and the
switches with blue painter's tape.
Jane Tip: Fom this point on,
we suggest wearing latex or vinyl
gloves and safety glasses. Getting
wall dust in your contact lenses
is no picnic!
Go over the walls with your
bare hands to feel for any surface
imperfections that will become
apparent once the wall is paint-
ed. Repair afiy dents or scratches
with a surfacing compound such
as Spacdke. Let the spackle dry

local government.
Another way land trusts
work is through "conservation
easements," whereby individuals
can protect their land but still
retain ownership and the option
of selling or passing it along to
heirs. Future owners of the land
are also bound by the easement's
terms, which restrict develop-
ment and use and are often mon-
itored by a land trust.
Conservation easements us-
ually lower the financial value of
their land (by limiting develop-
ment potential), but landowners
benefit because their property
taxes go down accordingly.
Likewise, if and when heirs
inherit the land, the conservation
easement lessens their estate tax
burden. CONTACTS: Land

Red Snapper from Page 1
Other new FWC rules
reduce the minimum size for
commercially harvested red
snapper in the Gulf and for
imported red snapper from 15 to
13 inches total length, and
reduce the daily commercial bag
and trip limit for red snapper
harvested in Gulf state waters off
Florida from four fish to two fish
daily per person.
The new rules also require
fishers on all vessels in the Gulf
reef fish fishery to possess and
use certain gear, including non-
stainless steel circle hooks that
must be possessed aboard a ves-
sel and used to harvest any Gulf
reef fish when natural baits are
used. A circle hook is a fishing
hook designed and manufac-
tured so that the point is turned
perpendicularly back to the
shank to form a generally circu-
lar or oval shape.
At least one dehooking de-
vice is required and must be used
to remove hooks embedded in
Gulf reef fish with minimum
damage. The dehooking device
must be constructed to allow the
hook to be secured and barb
shielded without re-engaging
during removal process. It must
be blunt and edges rounded, and
it must be of a size appropriate
to secure the range of hook sizes
used in the Gulf reef fish fishery.
At least one venting tool is
also required and is used to
deflate the swimbladders of reef
fish to help release the fish with
minimum damage. The next
FWC meeting is set for April 9-
10 in Tallahassee.

Stone Age and Primitive Art Fest

showcases ancient skills and tools

Chronicle Correspondent
Visitors to the first annual
Stone Age and Primitive Art
Festival held at Ochlockonee
River State Park this past week-
end found themselves transport-
ed to other times, where other
skills were dedicated to survival,
cultural expression, and personal
Upon approaching the festi-
val grounds, the attendees found
themselves passing a few primi-
tive campgrounds where tent vil-
lages sprouted like mushroom
fields;rpast vehicles disgorging
bikers and hikers gearing up for a
day of exploration under the per-
fect skies, and past packs of chil-
dren scampering to and fro with
bows and arrows, atlatls and
spears along the trail to the
archery range.
Upon reaching the edge of
the festival grounds, one found
no right or wrong place to enter,,
so the rule was to just go in.
Entering at the site of the
Mission San Luis presentation,
one was greeted by the display
under the management of two
docents from the museum, locat-
ed in Tallahassee, which trans-
ports one back to the 17th
Century, when Spanish pioneers
lived in close proximity to the
Apalachee Indians, drawn
together by religion, as well as
military and economic purpose.
The two docents presided over a
display of household utensils,
crafts, weapons, toys, games, and
decorative items that were in
common use by 17th-Century
pioneers and native Americans.
Craft demonstrations provided a
look at domestic life and demon-
strated the creative skills neces-
sary for adaptation to unfamiliar
tools, foods, and methods of
food preparation and preserva-
The next tent featured the
knappers, busy at work shaping
assorted chips and flakes of

stone over leather aprons with
tools of stone, bone, and antler,
the rapid knick-knack, knap and
clap echoing beneath the cool
pines as the knappers kept up a
steady stream of chatter regaling
the qualities and adversities
inherent in each type of material
under their tools. Multicolored
and shaped artifacts covered the
ground at their feet, of various
hues ranging from rainbow to
earth tones, in piercing shapes of
arrow, spear and knife blades.
A couple of tents away, the
atlatl specialists held sway, dis-
playing the primitive spear-
throwing devices in an apparent-
ly endless variety of colors,
shapes and decorative embellish-
The owner and manufactur-
er of Thunderbird Atlatls, Bob
Berg, was on. hand to demon-
strate and explain the function of
the atlatl, essentially a piece of
primitive technology. Its purpose
was to extend the reach of the
, spear-thrower, increasing the
power, extension, and accuracy
of the hurled weapon.
Instead of the high, arching
curve of he conventional, unas-
sisted throw, the proper employ-
ment of the atlatl transformed
the throw into a low, flat arc,
simultaneously applying a tight
spin which .increased accuracy
and maximized the force behind
the throw.
Berg and his family manu-
facture all their atlatls at their
shop in Candor, N.Y. primarily
for Internet and catalog sales.
At.the next tent, a more
domestic skill is in practice, an
Alligator Point resident, Barbara
Rosen, practices the ancient skill
of pineneedle weaving, which
she taught herself from the pages
of an old crafts book. Her dis-
play shows the creative possibili-
ties of her craft, with baskets,
bowls and trays dazzling in their

dies for color contrast in her
designs, high lighted by various
colors of yarn, or twine, and cen-
tered by bases made variously of
smooth-sawn cedar discs, resin-
engulfed agate slices, even a con-
veniently pierced china saucer.
Her bowls and baskets are woven
and varnished to be watertight,
with lids that fit securely enough
for food storage. Barbara's nim-
ble fingers remain busy as she
chats, and another bowl magical-
ly appears under her deft digits,
to be added to the display.
Suddenly, the rhythmic
boom, boom, BOOM of a native
Cherokee chant echoes across
the grounds, generated by four
apparent Cherokee native play-
ers, centered behind a circle of
stone dealers and their piles of
raw native stone for sale by the
pound-chunks of quartz-and
agate-bearing mineral rock
recently pried from their earthen
beds and piled on display, all
quivering to the vibration of the
native drums. Backing these, the
woodcarvers and found-art drift-
wood gatherers show their
wares, with the native jewelry
and clothing sellers scattered
Suddenly, the visitor finds
that he or she has entered a

kinds on. sale or just on show,

and upcoming archery, athletic
and atlatl displays about to take
place, and before you know it,

the day has fled, leaving images
of the distant past come to life
for a few hours.
