High ground

Published 6/10/2008 (Opinion)
When it comes to the future of the Apalachicola River and Bay, most probably wouldn't characterize the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the state of Florida as being of one mind.

But despite the Corps' own shortsightedness in its efforts to resolve this 20-year dispute, a top Corps commander has a promising idea that's worth pursuing for the long term. Brig. Gen. Joseph Schroedel, who oversees the Corps' South Atlantic region, suggests that a Southeast regional water council would help resolve — and, it is hoped, avoid — problems like the one Florida, Georgia and Alabama have been wrestling with for so long.
