Potentialairport upgrade unveiled
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
Marianna city' commissioners
recently got their first look at the
conceptual drawing for d roughly
$600,000 upgrade to the Marianna
Several of the improvements
planned by Melvin Engineering and
the subcontracted architect, Dono-
fro and Associates, are for visual ef-
fect; said Paul Donofro Jr.
The idea is to give the' airport a
more professional look and feel and
make it more pilot-friendly. That, he
said,, could make the facility' more
appealing to more pilots and give
Marianna a more valuable asset.
Since the building is structurally
sound .with "good horizontal lines
and a strong vertical element in the
tower," Donofro said, the main idea
is to preserve and enhance What's
there, The control tower will get
a new roof, he said., Even though
the tower is not operational for
years, control functions have been
achieved in. a more technologically
advanced system inside the build-
ing below- the tower is never-
theless an important symbol that
speaks to the presence of an airport.,
Currently, it is in a more dilapidated
state than the city wants.
The building itself, called the fixed
base operation, will get see a few

internal improvements, like a part -

mediately adjacent pilot lounge.
Donofro said the lounge will also
be upgraded for the comfort of pi-
lots who, 'when they bring in cor-
porate CEOs like those from Family
Dollar and'other businesses, often
have to wait at the airport for hours
while their passengers .conduct
business in the community.
Some outside elements of the air-
port will be improved as well. The
building will be re-painted and, in
some areas, will get a coat of stucco
to help with, insulation. Eventually,
the entire airport will be fenced in
and signage will be.added to help
visitors find their way into the fa-
cility more easily. Donofro said the
three entrances will be reduced to

The most wonderful time of the year
It's that time of the year
when our biggest holi-
days are upon us. This
time of the year brings*
out some of the strongest
emotions we Americans
Spending time with our
families and enjoying a
scrumptious meal is al-
ways great to look forward
to. For some there is the
excitement and eagerness
of purchasing gifts for
those they care for, and
the looking forward to the
gifts they might possibly
be receiving from those
that have special feelings
If a person has been
blessed to be in the posi-
tion to give gifts because
of their financial status, or
because they did the wise
thing and put, money aside
during the time leading
up to the holidays, more

barely able to make it, so'
they can't put money aside

the year from
Thma of viewpoint.
Vincent With the
nomic situation and the
shortage of employment,
many of our citizens are
in the survival mode; and
the thought of facing the
holidays can be stressful
The businesses and en-
trepreneurs look forward
to this time of the year,
because it can fatten their.
accounts "big time." Their
goal is to advertise prod-
ucts that are hard to resist,
and it usually works. In
fact, it works so well that
many folks spend money
that is needed for their
family's expenses to make
unwise purchases, and
It would be great if some
of the strong emotions we
exhibit during this time of
the year could be geared
toward the real meaning of
the holidays, and less on
the financial aspects. By
doing so it could dimin-
ish many of the feelings
wrapped around money
and things and help us
focus more on the reason
for the season.
Shouldn't the holidays
be an exciting time of
the year f6r everyone, no
matter what their status?
Don't allow the times
that should be meant
for celebration and joy
turn into times of frustra-
tion and stressfulness.

many things we should
be thankful to God for,
including life itself, how
could the Thanksgiving

A Veterans Day
with fewer vets
At many fancy banquets in Washington, D.C., it's
ff customary for the band to play the official songs
f the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and
Coast Guard. And it is the custom of audience mem-
bers who've served with those branches of our military
to stand at attention.
Each year, fewer and fewer do and they're older and
grayer but visibly proud of their service. On Monday, we
honor veterans with a holiday meant to mark the end
of that human meat grinder known as World War I. First
celebrated in 1919 as Armistice Day, it now pays tribute
to all who have served their country in uniform.
Last year, there were 21.2 million veterans in the Unit-
ed States, but their numbers, thanks to the fine grinding
of the actuarial tables, are fast dwindling: 9.6 million of
them are older than 65 and 1.8 million of them younger
It is a clear imbalance but not necessarily a bad one.
We are fighting no great wars, and this administration is
making only token efforts to get involved in small ones.
We are, as much as we've ever been, a nation at peace,
and we are willing to spend as much as the rest of the
world combined to keep it that way.
But even as Veterans Day approached, Defense I
Secretary Chuck Hagel was wheeling and dealing with
Congress to ward off further budget cuts. He has com-
plained that projected cutbacks of'$1 trillion during
the next decade will weaken the muscle and bbne of
The cutbacks have changed America's longstanding
strategy of being able to fight two large wars and one
smaller one simultaneously. Army Chief of Staff Gen.
Ray Odierno warns that if the Army continues to shrink,
the military might not be able to deal with even one
Our country has often been taken by surprise and un-
prepared to find itself at war. But we have always risen
toohe occasion, and in eye-opening ways.
The universal draft threw together Ivy Leaguers, farm
boys, intellectuals and illiterates that the armed forces
trained for battle in World War IT. In four years, they
helped to defeat two great military powers. Later troops,
first as draftees andthen volunteers, served on battle-
fields in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan and
elsewhere -or strove to keep peace.
On Veterans Day, we must thank our veterans and
we must nurture the generations that will take their
place. One day, they too will stand tall when the band
strikes up the service songs.

'president was deliberately mislead-

on the Constitution, which had
avoided any mention of equality.

Letters home from the front during World War I
BY JAMES F.BURNS
C arroll Hosbrook, a farm boy
from Ohio, found himself
in a small French village on
Nov. 11, 1918. Bells in a bombed-
out church were still intact, ringing
out the good news of the Armistice
having just been signed. Carroll
was writing home on ihis historic I
day, part of a series of letters that
chronicled his service. My Uncle
Carroll had a wry sense of humor,
an eye for girls, and a strong sense
of duty to family and country.'.
A Camp Sherman, Chillicothe,
Ohio May 6,1918. Dear Grand-.
ma, Well, I fired the machine gun for
the first time this morning. It made
my ears ring as if someone had hit
me. Then I got my second inopula-'
#on shot; it was bigger shot but
has not made me sick (yet)'. You said
sister Harriet had the headache. Let
her come up here arid take some of
the stuff I got to take, and it could
cure her headaches. I haven't got a
girl up here, so get a real pretty one
down there to write me. That shot
in my back is starting to work on my
knees. They feel like they are going
to fall off. But don't worry about me.
I will take care of myself.

3 England, June 27, 1918. Dear
Grandma, I arrived over here safe
and sure had a wonderful trip.
Don't worry a bit about me because,
Uncle Sam will take care of me. The
weather is very cool, and I'd like to'
have a sleeveless sweater as soon as
possible. I will fight a lot harder for
you if I am warm. Ha, ha.
) Somewhere in France, July'17,
1918. Dear Aunt, We are billeted'
in old house on the outskirts of a
nice French village. We saw some
churches and other buildings 300
years old. No doubt, they have a
great history, but I am not over here
to study history. As I was writing
this letter, two aeroplanes went
over where we are stationed. They
were allies but I couldn't make out
the nationality. Gee, I like to hear
their engines hum it's music to
me. Tell Grandma not to worry. I am
coming back to, all.
) France, Sept. 19, 191;8. Dear
Grandma, I am in a British field
hospital. My sickness is the diar-
rhea. The sicker boys have beds,'
and the ones that ain't so sick sleep
on stretchers. There are nine Tom-
mies [British soldiers] in this tent
with me, and they are trying to' sell
me some of Jerry's stuff, so I have
a hard time writing. The Jerries are
what you would call the Huns. The-
boys bring in stuff from the front
they get off the dead and from pris-
oners. I just looked at a nice leather
belt'with "Gon Mitt Uns" on the
buckle: This means "God is with us."

Grandma/,Our roof got damaged in
the fighting. I just learned Austria

When will senators
take a stand?.
I am not surprised that
our U.S. senators passed
by a vote of 64 for and 32
opposed to stop compa-
nies from discrimination
against gay people who
apply for a job. Ninety
percent of Fortune 500
companies also support
the same law. TWenty-
two of our 50 states have
passed similar laws.
I wonder how many of
these senators, company
leaders and state officials
have sat down and read
carefully what the medical
field says about the sexual
activity of these homosex-
uals? I also would like to
know how many of these
individuals know what the'
Bible, God's word, says,
about this type of rela-
tionship, male with male,
female with female.
I ask all these questions
because I believe that we
have a nation that is anti-
God and anti-Bible. Even a
high percentage of church
leaders support this sin.
I will not be surprised
that the next thing that is
promoted by our political
leaders is polygamy, the
right to have two or more
wives at the same time. .-
We have those living in
our country now who sup-
port this and practice itin
their native country. The
House of Representatives
-say it will not pass.
I ask them if they are go-
ing to stand on their moral
principle oroif they are go-
ing to take a position that
will assure them they will
return to office the next
time they have to run for
it. I close by saying, wake

Referendum on a fictional Florida education tax
Would you vote
for a 1 percent
'Florida state in-
come tax with all revenues
dedicated exclusively to
education? By the time
you read this, Coloradans
will have decided on a
somewhat similar legisla-
"The (Colorado) refer-
endum will'... replace the
current flat state income
tax rate of 4.6 percent with
a two-tier system," writes
Jack Healy in the New York
Times. 'Residents with
taxable incomes below
$75,000 would pay 5
percent; taxable incomes
above $75,000 would be
taxeat 5.9 percent."'
Floridians pay no state -
income tax. Not true in
most states, including
Colorado. The Colorado
earners at a
Margaret our fiction-
'McDowel al Florida
would tax everyone 1 per-
cent across the board. The
ca%-eai is that the adjusted
gross income of many Flo-
ridians is already too low
for such an educational
tax to be imposed on
them. Thus, the burden
of payihg for increasing
educational costs across
the state would again fall
on those who are better
able to afford it.
There are a lot of good
reasons to oppose this
type .of increase. One,
.you might argue that
higher earners already pay
more in property taxes
to support local educa-
tion, so why should they
be socked again? Two,
Florida is the unofficial
U.S. Retiree Capital, and
many Floridians have no
children in school. Florid-
ians without school-aged4
children often resent the
portion of their taxes
earmarked annually for-
local education. Many:
Floridians would object tb
our Fictional proposal be-
cause the Florida Lottery
was originally designed to
serve as a supplementary
funding vehicle. Soire
Coloradans opposed their
increase because they
feared the new revenues
would be reallocated
toward increasing teacher
pay or funding pension
programs, instead of
being utilized directly to
'benefit students. Florid-
* ians might harbor similar

vice. Besides, the obvious
benefits of betterjob
opportunities and higher
lifetime salary levels, ac-
cording to The Institute
for Higher Education
Policy, advanced educa-
tion can lead to improved
health and increased life
is often commensurate
with lower crime rates.
Good schools can lead to
increased property values,
as new residents seek out
neighborhoods in high-
ranking school districts.
Lastly, schools offer adult
meeting space, and a vari-
ety of related services that
are vital, but sometimes
difficult to quantify:.
A former educator
I know contends that
instead of a tax, we should
charge every Florida
family $100 per student
annually. Because we
"give" our public educa-
tion away, he says, Florida
families don't value it, and
thus, we demand less of
our children in the areas
of study and behavior.
That idea might have a
better chance of 'passing.

JACKSON COUNTY FLORIDAN www.jcfloridan.com
Dear Annie A year ago, I had an argu-
ment; mostly via text, with my 37-year-
old son. He was threatening to leave, his
bride of two Weeks. I tried to 'get him to
understand that he had made a seri-
ous commitment and shouldn't throw
it away so easily. Unfortunately, things
escalated to include more personal feel-
ings on both sides.
Despite a rocky first year, he recently
celebrated his first anniversary. However,
since the disagreement, he has refused
to speak to me. I emailed, texted and
called, apologizing and begging him to
talk this out. I acknowledged his birthday
and Christmas with gifts, but received
no response. I then ceased attempts to
contact him for several months, hoping
to give him some space. Still nothing.
My daughter-in-law, and I have main-
tained a fairly close relationship, and she
frequently encourages my son to contact
me, as have some of his friends and even
my ex-husband. It hasn't helped.
My heart is broken, which, he knows. I
realize I hurt him with some of the things
I said, but my pain is deep, as well; I
am open to whatever he needs to make
this better, but he will not take even the
smallest step to reconcile. No one un-'
derstands why he is acting.like this. What.,
else can I do to fix it? I miss my son.
SHATTERED MOM IN MICHIGAN
Dear Mom: Your son's willingness to
trash his marriage after two weeks and
.his inability to work through your argu-
ment indicate that he is emotionally iti-
mature and prone to rash decisions. We
suggest you send a letter or enmail simply
saying you are deeply remorseful for
the things you said and for hurting him,
and that your door will always be open
in the hope that he can someday-forgive
you. Don't argue that he hurt you, too.
Don't claim you spoke in the heal of the,
moment. Don't beg to talk to him. You've
done what you can. The next move is his.
He may come around when everyone
stops pressuring him. Meanwhile, be
grateful his wife stays in touch.
Dear Annie: I am a 70-year-old widow.
IWo years ago, a friend told me that
a classmate, "Tom," wanted to get in
touch with me. The friend gave me Tom's
phone number, and a few months later, I
called. We had a lovely conversation and
still talk at least once a week.
Here's the problem: Tom said he was
coming to visit, but he hasn't. He drives
a truck and is semi-retired, so he can
pretty much drive.when he wants. From
his place to mine would take 12 hours,
but he has family here, so it seems odd
that he still calls but there has been no
I hope you can clear up this mystery.
Tom is a widower, but if he had a girl-
friend, I know he wouldn't be calling me
PENELOPE IN PORTLAND
Dear Penelope: Well, Tom could have a
girlfriend and still, call you. More likely,
he wants to visit, but the 12-hour drive
is toodaunting. The onlywayto know is
to ask. Next time you speak to Tom, say
that you are looking forward to seeing
him and ask whether he is serious about
visiting. Try to pin down a date.;
Dear Annie: "Finally at Peace" said she
decided to focus on those grandchil-
dren she is close to instead of mourn-
ing the ones she is not. Please let her.
know she has touched me and given me
Two of my children want nothing to do
with me (for different reasons). I do not
get to see those grandchildren. Her letter
made me realize that I should celebrate
with and be grateful for the ones I have.

Bass fishing is good.
With the fish becoming
acclimated to the con-
sistently cooler weather,
they are becoming more
active. On shallow grass
flats, Rat-L-Traps and
other lipless crankbaits
are producing. Grass lines
in the main lake are good
spots to target for some
pretty consistent flipping
action. Slow presentations'
and stout equipment are
Crappie fishing may
be fair at. times along the
moderately deep channel
ledges. Look for the fish
in stump fields at 10 to 15
feet and-use live minnows.
Breamn are Very slow. ,

Bass fishing is fair. The:
southerni end of the lake
is the best bet at present.
The cool-weather fish are..
prinia'rflv holding along
deeper points near and
in the creeks. Slow-rolled
spinnerbaits can produce
in these areas. Texas-
rigged lizards have also
produced fair action in the,
afternoons on points and
aro und dock structures.
Crappies may bite fairly
well in deeper sections of
the creeks, especially later
in the day.- Bridge struc-
ture mnay also hold some
fish. Mfinnows are best
Breamh are slow, and cat-~
fish may bite worms n the
flats in the afternoon.,
Catfish have been pretty
good, but may slow down
as temperatures, water
level and clarity fluctu-
ate. If conditions warrant,
use live earthworms to
catch them alone~ bluff
Walls where currents are
not too strong. Late in the
day, catfish may also bite
on sandbars and points.
Tailwater cats will be slow
to bite, but the fish caught
in the-tailwaters will be
larger as a rule than those
in other locations.
Breamn will slow down
considerably, but if clear
water can be found up the
creeks, a few may be taken
on worms fished on the
bottom. Breamn fishing in
this fashion in the creeks
may also produce some
pretty good c 'atfish from'
time to time.

A nice sort of strange Florida county

is strange. Really
Wait, now. Don't jump to
conclusions. Not eerie/
scary strange. Not overrun
with weirdos, either. Nice
folks here. Nice enough to
be forgiven their Yankee
No, Pinellas County is
only strange in that it is a
happy anomanly, particu-
larly from an off-the-beat-
To be honest, I won-
dered just what I was
getting myself into as I
crossed Old Tampa Bay
on the Howard Frankland
Bridge. I'm a notorious
non-lover of big towns
and big traffic and, frankly,
traffic is nobody's idea
of a good time. However,
highways do have exmts,
and tmercifullv) 1-275 is
Ah, yes. There it is, Ebit
17, Pinellas Bayway. Get
off, drive west a piece.
Turn left at the gaudy,
pink Don Cesar Hotel, a
landmark at which one
simply cannot help staring
(and smiling). Lots of his-
tory there, I'm told, going
back to 1928.
Slowly, now, drive along
the sea wall at the south-
ern end of Boca Ciega Bay.
into the winter-sleepy
village of Pass-A-Grille.
Stop, alight, check in at
Island's End Cortages. (Oh,
boy! A fishing dock and
winter seabirds to watch!)
How fortunate. 1-275 is a
distant memory. Still not
sure what I'm into, but
now I'm thinking I'll Prob-
ably like it.
Lest I be accused of
"blowing smoke" and
auditioning for some
Living" promotion, let me
point out that a sojop urn in
this southwestern stretch

of Pinellas County is not
devoid of automobiles
and the occasional run-in
with hustle and bustle,
This is, after all, a densely
populated area in close
proximity to a major met-
ropolitan center. There
are, as one travels about,
busy thoroughfares, honk-
ing horns, and, in places,
the incessant sounds
engines. Therein, however,
lies the story; the weird,
wonderful anomaly. For,
strangely. there is always
somehowv to be had peace,
serenity, natural beauty,
even solitude, often just a
stone's throw away.
"Think about it," my
guide said. "We're at the
edge of one of the most
densely populated areas
in the state, and look
where we've just been.
Sort of amazing, don't you
Where we'd just been
was fishing, from kayaks,
in a network of Pinellas
County tidal creeks and
bayous. Not a far-flung
(just a couple hours be-
tween put-in and take-out
near a bustling, four-lane
highway), but there was a
genuine backcountry feel
about it. Deep in the man -
groves, it was difficult to
believe "civilization" was
so near. At the whim of
the morning tide, we cast
lures for snook, tarpon,
and redfish, often errantly,
as we found ourselves
caught up in the abound-
ing flora and fauna in and
around the mangrove-
lined waterways. Fact is, I
probably missed casting
into the choicest snook
hideaways in my quest to
add some new rare bird to
my life list.

ORIGINS OF VETERANS DAY
Raymond Weeks of Birmingham, Ala., orga-
nize' a Veterans Day parade for that city on
Nov. 11.1947, to honor all of America'sVeter- >1
ans for their loyal service. Later, U.S. Repre- r
sentative Edward H. Rees of Kansas proposed
legislation changing the name of Armistice
Day to Veterans Day to honor all who have
served in Amenca's Armed Forces.
In 1954, President Dwight D Eisenhower
signed a bill proclaiming Nov. 11 as Veterans
Day and-called upon Americans everywhere to
rededicate themselves to the cause of peace. A
He issued a presidential order directing the
head of the Veterans Administratlcin. now the F
Department of Veterans Affairs, to form a
Veterans Day National Committee to orga-
nize and oversee the national observance of

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
MEMORIAL DAY AND VETERANS DAY
Many people confuse Memo-
rial Day and Veterans Day. Both
holidays were established to rec-
ognize and honor the men and
women who have worn the uni-
form of the United States Armed
Forces. But Memorial Day. which
is observed on the last Monday
in. May, was originally set aside
as a day for remembering and
honoring military personnel who
died in the service of their coun-
try, particularly those who died
in battle or as a result of wcrunds
sustained in battle.
While those who died are also
remembered on Veterans Day. it
is intended to thank and honor
all those who served honorably
in the military in wartime or
peacetime. In fact, Veterans
Day is largely intended to thank
living Veterans for their service,
to acknowledge that their
contributions to our national
security are appreciated, and.
to underscore the fact that all
those who served not only
those who died have sacri-
ficed and done their duty

Nov. 11, giving universal recognition to the :
celebrated ending of World War I hostilities at
