Charlotte Januse, Maria Acebo and Wayne Gable were waiting to be sworn in at the Sept. 13 meeting mayors veto power in the revised charter. Upset when told by attorney Matt Fuqua that the mayor could veto anything, the three refused to stay and lost their seats on the council. Gable said they could not have known what, if any, changes were made in the charter because it wasnt available in time. In fact, he said those voting on whether to change the charter didnt have access to see But City Clerk Carol Finuff disputes that claim. She said the revised charter was here at town hall for any one who wanted it. She said, It was here a week Monday before the election. She said three public meetings were held to discuss revisions to the charter. Gable said he didnt attend any of the meetings because he was not aware of them. He did point out though that there is a large sign out in front of Town Hall where the dates for the special meetings could have been announced. Fuqua described the charter changes as basically taking out antiquated language and outdated informa tion. He said there is an override provision in the char agree, they can overrule the mayor. Gable said that wouldnt have helped him and the other two who had planned to be on the council. He said a previous charter limited the mayors pow er, explaining, The Charter dated July 1, 1951 gave veto power to the Mayor on ordinances only. The new charter allows veto over any action taken by the board. going council member Janice Graham agreed to serve another term. The two remaining seats are still open. The council meets the third Thursday of each month. The next meeting is scheduled for Oct. 18. EDITORS NOTE: Information received for the Sept. 19 story about the meeting indicated that it was Gable, not Acebo, who asked the question about the mayors veto. After they walked out, the police chief did catch up with the three and asked them to return to the meeting but all declined. The Journal received information for our original story indicating the chief had not made contact with them, which was incorrect.

DAVI D JACKSON SUMMERS P. A (850) 643-2030 COMMENTARY Dear Mary, I got your letter in the mail this after noon. I read it aloud to my dogs while sip ping an iced tea on my porch. It was a nice surprise, receiving a hand written letter. I dont get many. Even though we are strangers, I was glad to hear about your life. Your new job, your newborn son, and about how much you like Willie Nelson. Youre in good company, Willie Nelson is very special to me, too. I am sorry your father died. I dont know exactly what youre feeling, but I know what its like to lose a father. I know you will never be the same. Not that it matters, but when I was four teen, I found an ad in the back of a maga zine, it advertised a pen pal agency. I re sponded to the ad, requesting a pen pal. My assigned correspondent was from Atlantakeep in mind, this was before the age of the internet. The most advanced form of communication in our day was homing pigeons. My pen pals name was Bee Bee. She was her lowercase Is with little hearts, and I accidentally fell in love with her. We only wrote each other a handful of times, but we talked about our lives in our letters. She told me about her parents di vorce. I told her about my fathers suicide. We talked about how sad we felt. And about things that made us happy. She liked the Four Tops. I liked Willie. She wanted to be a hip-hop dancer. I wanted to write for a newspaper. She closed each of her letters with: Your forever-friend, Bee Bee. And well, Id had never had a foreverfriend. Especially not since my fathers death. In fact, I didnt have many friends at all. I wished I could end my letters in a sentimen tal way like she did, but I couldnt bring myself to use mushy words to a girl. After all, I didnt want Bee Bee to think I was a complete toadstool who sat around eating Fri tos and watching girly movies like Steel Magno lias, quoting movie dialogue with Shirley Ma cLaine, Olympia Dukakis, Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Sam Shepard, Daryl Hannah, Tom Sker ritt, and the infallible Dolly Parton. Thats dumb. So I ended my letters with: All the best, Sean. We wrote back and forth a couple times. Fi nally, she suggested we send pictures to each other. My heart sank. I knew she would be repulsed by me. I was as friends, and much chubbier. And freckled. And redheaded. My friend Andrew took photos of me with a drugstore camera. The pictures were awful. In these photos, I was trying to disguise my chubbiness by stand ing against a basketball goal. This, I hoped, would make it appear to untrained eyes that I was a point guard, relaxing on the axis of the Wheel of Life. I held a basketball for effect. son for Pillsbury. Along with the pictures, I wrote Bee Bee, say ing I knew I wasnt attractive, and I hoped the photos didnt cause her any nausea or blurred vi sion. A few weeks went by, I got a thick envelope in the mail from Atlanta. Bee Bee had sent photos of herself. The photos were not what Id expected. Bee Bee had long dreadlocks, and midnight skin. She was tall, broad shouldered, and larger than her all her friends. She told me she felt ugly when she looked in the mirror, and overweight, just like me. She handsome. And she said, You have a beautiful soul. Her words did something. They made me feel like I matteredthough she was a stranger. I wrote her back to tell her how lovely she was. We only wrote two or three more times after that. Because kids get older and busier. But, somewhere in my garage I still have a shoebox. Among its contents are pharmacy-de veloped photos of a young man holding a basket ball. You should see him. Underneath his smile, you can see how lonely he is. He misses his fa ther. He just needs someone to love him. I wonder if that isnt what everyone needs. Also in this shoebox are lettersfrom special people. Some are from my wife. One is from my lanta, who wrote in purple ink. Your letter will go in this same shoebox, Mary. Along with the Willie Nelson CD you sent. It will get better, darling. Youll see. You have a beautiful soul. Your forever-friend, Sean S EAN S OUTH PEN PALS BY SEAN DIETRICH OF THE Sean Dietrich writes about life in the American South.
