FDOH to BOCC: ‘full confidence in Lindeman’

He cited a number of initiatives Lindeman had undertaken, including a community-wide rabies clinic when rabies was detected in the county; flu shot clinics in the public schools; collaboration with Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf to broaden access to health care and strategic planning for the community and department, among others.

“Marsha Lindeman is committed to protecting and promoting the health of those residing and visiting Gulf County,” Armstrong wrote. “I support the decisions she made and look forward to working with her as she continues to provide public health leadership in Gulf County.”

Williams, who had the county attorney read the letter for the board during Tuesday’s regular bi-monthly meeting – McLemore was absent due to a doctor’s appointment – hoped Armstrong’s letter would close the issue.

“We sent the letter, they sent a letter, I think it is closed,” Yeager said.

Cape San Blas Lighthouse

The BOCC approved moving forward with plans to make a claim for the Cape San Blas Lighthouse and keepers’ quarters as the process of federal government disposal of the land moves ahead. McDaniel, who offered the motion, said his idea was to move the lighthouse and quarters to Salinas Park.

Yeager said he had talked with city officials and also with representatives with the St. Joseph Historical Society, and said the common theme is to save the historical lighthouse, though there is are multiple opinions on a suitable location.
