Residents on Cape San Blas
might feel just a little bit safer fol-
lowing the addition of another sher-
iffs deputy for the south end of
Gulf County.
Sheriff Dalton Upchurch, first
on the agenda at Tuesday's regular
Gulf Cotmty Commission meeting,
had several reports and updates.
from his department.
Charged in the midst of the
2005 flooding in Gulf County with
overseeing relief efforts and placed
as head of the Emergency
Operations Center (EOC),
Upchurch presented the final coun-
ty tab for the flooding..cost of
$91.049.74.
He noted that debris cleanup
was still in progress.
Upchurch said one of the
biggest problems his department
had during the local state of emer-
gency was a breakdown in commu-
nication.
The radio system currently
being used by the sheriffs depart-


ment only covers about 50 percent
of the county.
In an effort to solve the prob-
lem, Upchurch said his department
has been testing radio equipment.
"It's a great system; but I'm not
going to tell you it's cheap because
lit's not," Upchurch said.
One advantage of working with
the proposed company, in addition
to its offer to lease/purchase the
equipment to lessen burden of cost,
is that the sheriffs office would no
longer be responsible for maintain-
ing the transmitter towers.
In anticipation of the 2005 hur-
ricane season beginning in less
than a month, Upchurch said his
department is beginning opera-
tional procedures, for emergency
response and discussing activation
of the EOC.
Following their operating pro-
cedures during the flooding,
Upchurch said in the event of a
hurricane, the Sheriffs Department
would be working directly with
commissioners in their districts in

A shift in structure and in
focus.
Following changes in the make-
up of the board and intensive nego-
tiations, the Port Authority appears
one step closer to reactivating a
local port.
Chairman Gary Ross
announced his intentions to step'
down at a recent Gulf County
Republican party meeting and fol-
lowed with an official letter of resig-
nation, effective May 8, to Governor
Jeb Bush.
'There was a feeling that I was
a lightning rod in our dealings with
The St. Joe Company," Ross said.
adding that the opinion came from
the Tallahassee lawyer represent-
ing the Port Authority in its deal-
ings with St. Joe.
Ross said he supported a num-
ber of initiatives taken by St. Joe in
recent years "they've done a lot of
things right" but he, was con-
cerned about Port St. Joe returning


to a "one-factory" existence if a port
never takes hold.
In his letter of resignation to
Gov. Jeb Bush, Ross wrote, "The
potential for the development of a
deep water port is at a critical
point. I feel that other leadership is
in the best interests of the commu-
nity if this is to be accomplished."
On April 8, Allen Cox joined the
board by governor appointment,
filling the seat vacated 'by Scott
Godwin in January. Cox's term on
the Port Authority board is through
Sept. 7, 2007.
Once appointed to the Port
Authority, Cox was elected chair-
man.
I.Ken Karpinski, a contract con-
sultant hired for marketing and
experience in port operation, is also
no longer with the Port,Authority.
Executive Director Tommy Pitts
said since the Port Authority has
changed their focus, now concen-
trating on negotiations with St. Joe
Company about a land purchase,
"we just had more staff than need-


ed."
Cox cited a reduction of admin-
istrative overhead as the reason for
Karpinski's resignation from the
Port Authority.
The change in voices represent-
ing the Port Authority comes at a
crucial juncture.
Representatives, from the City
of Port St. Joe, The St. Joe
Company and the Port Authority
met for nearly two years in a \ision-
ing process on the future of a port.
Those meetings essentially
become the domain of lawyers rep-
resenting the Port Authority and
The St. Joe Co. late last year,
Ross, who said he was echoing
the sentiments of the board of
directors, and Karpinski. had been
the chief public spokesmen for the
Port Authority until last month.
The land purchase at issue is
the 80 acres originally proposed by
the St. Joe Company's master plan
north of the mill site, plus an addi-
tional 60 acres north of the Tapper

Trimming Hair and Cutting Loose at Eddie's Beauty Salon


by Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
When Eddie Belle White com-
pleted her hair and cosmetology
training at Jack's School of Beauty
Culture in Wichita Falls, Tex., the
youngest daughter of a
Wewahitchka turpentine man
returned home on a mission to
beautify the town, one lock at a
time.
Now 60 years later, White is
still cutting,. curling and teasing,
and at age 82, proudly counts her-
self the oldest licensed hair stylist


in Florida.
"I think I'm the oldest one in
the whole United States," noted
White, adding that there may be
older, inactive stylists who do not
keep a current license.
"I suspect I'm active, don't
you," said White with a sweet smile
flashing a hint of mischief.
A Southern belle with a sense
of humor, White styles hair wearing
diamond rings on well-manicured
fingers and frequently addresses
her customers as "old lady," one of
her greatest terms of endearment.


Many of White's clients are old
friends whose hair she's styled
upwards of 40 years.
Janice Birmingham, who
arrived on Friday morning to have
her hair done, is two months older
than White and a longtime friend
and customer.
After giving'White a kiss on the
cheek, Birmingham reclined in a
chair opposite the sink.
"I give 'em a bath see," said
White as she fired up the faucet.
"And I don't charge them anything
else for the ears and the neck. It's a


courtesy from Eddie's Beauty
Salon." I
Birmingham opted for a simple
curl and comb out, a choice easily
accommodated by White, who is
well-versed in the popular hairdos
of the past 60 years.
'Years ago, we did a finger
wave," said White, describing the
evolving nature of the beauty
industry. 'The hair was short and
we finger waved it from the front of
the hair to the very back. Then we
started doing, pin curls."
After pin' curls came the
medieval torture device known as


no fan of the most recent 'trend,
which she described as "long and
straight and stringy."
With Birmingham safely
installed under the hair dryer,
White opened her chair to 'Viola
Kemp, another longtime friend.
'This is the gossip chair," said
Kemp, taking a seat in front of the
mirror.
"No it ain't," retorted White,
reading the words emblazoned on a
decorative plaque hanging nearby.
"I never repeat gossip, so listen
carefully."

During one of their busier
agendas of the year to date,-
Wewahitchka city commissioners
during their regular bi-monthly
meeting on Monday set new hours
for City Hall, established a fee
schedule for site plan reviews and
approved submittal of budget
requests to the Board of County
Commission.
The new hours at City Hall will
be 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. CT effective
June 1. City Hall currently opens at
7 a.m., but commissioners decided
to move the opening back an hour
to allow city staff additional time to
complete paperwork and ready for
the day.
The new hours are in effect
each working day.
With the growth that is steadily
overtaking the area. commissioners


were also faced with a dilemma on
site plan reviews, which include
examining the plans for compatibil-
ity with the comprehensive plan
and final approval for the site plan.
;Such reviews were not a major
issue when the city was handling
one or two a month, but with more
and more development have come
more and more site plans for
review, taxing staff.
Effective immediately all site
plan reviews will cost $25.
Commissioners also approved
a list of budget requests to the
county, which included the coun-
ty's half of the annual payment on
the new fire. truck purchased last
year, somewhere in the neighbor-
hood of $20,000, roughly $2,000 to
help defray fire call costs and
$10,000-$12;000 for parks and
recreation.

Dolphin

As they scour the hori-
zon from the helm of their
skiff, they all agree they
could not imagine working a
9-to-5 office job.
How It All Works
As they set out each-
morning, each researcher
grabs a set of headphones
and listens intently for a
transmission from any of the
dolphins outfitted with radio
tags.
When the dolphins' dor-
sal fins break the surface of
the water, three steady beeps
signal to the researchers


SFrom Page 1A

another opportunity to col-
lect data.
If the dolphin is playing
or feeding, photo opportuni-
ties can take several min-
utes. Sometimes, with
Barbieri or Schilling at the
helm, the researchers will
idle around one location for
half an hour.
"It takes a lot of
patience," Schilling said.
Once the dolphin is
located, Balmer grabs his
Nikon digital with a telepho-
to lens and waits patiently at
the bow of the boat to cap-


ture several images.
While Balmer pho-
tographs the various dorsal
fins, one researcher steers
the boat while the other
records environmental vari-
ables water temperature,
salinity, depth, and latitudi-
nal/longitudinal position at
each location.
The researchers not only
collect data and track the
dolphins behavior at each
observation, but also check
to ensure the tags are not
adversely affecting the dol-
phins' fins.
In addition to the nine
radio tags, satellite tags have
been placed on two of the
dolphins.
"We want to make sure
the tags are not invasive for
the animals," Balmer said.
Another key observation
the team has made is that
several of the dolphins have
the dangerous tendency to
approach the boat and
exhibit begging behaviors.
The simple fact that the
dolphins approach the boat
is an indicator that recre-
ational boaters are feeding
the dolphins.

A mother and calf, two of the animals being studied, swim together off the coast in St.
Andrews Sound


Trevor Spradlin, a NOAA
associate, said anytime wild
animals are being fed in their
natural habit, it not only
poses a threat to the animals
but to humans as well.
Almost to St. Andrews
Sound, one of the tagged pdol-
phins and known beggars
approached the boat.
"He should know my
now we're not going to feed
him," Balmer said.
In one of their most
exciting and cooperative
spottings of the day, Balmer
got a great photo opportunity
of a tagged mother and calf
traveling around St. Andrews
Sound.
As Barbieri positioned
the boat, Balmer clicked off
several photos of the pair.
"It doesn't get much bet-
ter than that," he smiled.
Why Their Research Is
Important For The Future
According to Teri Rowles
of NOAA Fisheries Service
and the Marine Mammal
Health and Stranding
Response Program, Balmer's
photo identification study
will establish the foundation
for long term research of the
bottlenose dolphin popula-
tion that suffered an unusu-
al mortality event (UME), in
which 107 bottlenose dol-


phins perished just over a
year ago.
Kim Wrenn of the
Apalachicola National
Estuarine Research Reserve
(ANERR) in Eastpoint said it
is critical to first address
basic understandings about
distribution and residency
patterns of the dolphins fol-
lowing the UME.
Balmer's data collection
will not only establish an
archival database in coordi-
nation with the Department
of Oceanography at Florida


State University to study
long-term trends, but it will
also help ANERR determine
modifications for manage-
ment plans along the coast
challenged by increased
development.
'The important informa-
tion provided by this study
will be instrumental in the
formulation of effective con-
servation policies and man-
agement proposals to protect
these dolphin populations
and the marine environment
in this area," Wren said.

by Dave Maddox
In 1893, my grandfather
Maddox and his brother
Dave moved their cattle from
the Apalachicola area to the
head of the St. Joe Bay
because this site offered a
better grazing range due to
an abundance of salt water
Bermuda grass. They built a
small house adjacent to the
old Peter Gautier home in


Gautier Hammock and lived
there until 1896.
Since three or four light-
houses had washed away at
Cape San Bias, the
Lighthouse Board decided to
relocate the lighthouse on
Black's Island. After the
foundation for the tower was
constructed and one
dwelling completed, a ques-
tion arose concerning the


visibility of the Black's Island
light off shore on the cape
shoals. Without the aid of
slide rules and computers,
the solution was to erect a
tall pole with a light on top
and go out to the Gulf far
enough to determine if this
lighthouse would serve effec-
tively from this location. The
light could not be seen so the
idea of a lighthouse on


Black's Island was aban-
doned. The board decided to
continue using the existing
lighthouse at Cape San Bias
although the tower was in
the edge of the Gulf waters.
The Lighthouse Board
hired my grandfather to be
caretaker of this house and'
the materials that had been
assembled on the island to
build the lighthouse so he
moved his family to Black's
Island.
One Sunday in 1898 the
family boarded their sailboat
and sailed up to the head of
Lighthouse Bayou. They tied
up across from what is now


Stacking and Pruning Tomatoes


by Roy Lee Carter-
County Extension Director
The one vegetable that
almost all backyard garden-
ers include is the tomato. If
you've followed our advice so
far, you should have healthy.
vigorous tomato plants well
on they're way to producing
high quality fruit. In this
article, I will take about stak-
ing and pruning.
Staking and pruning are
"fine tuning" techniques.
They are not absolutely
necessary. They certain-
ly won't make up for
deficiencies in fertiliz-
er, water, and
mulches, or an inad-
equate spry program.
They can, however,
enhance the quality of
the tomatoes your plants
produce. I'll cover these pro-
cedures in some detail,


explaining how and why
they're done. My information
was provided by Extension


Stephens.
Staking tomato plants,
as they grow will keep the


fruit off the ground and con-
serve space in the garden.
Staking also makes it easier
to cultivate and harvest
tomatoes and it helps pre-
vent some fruit rots.
First, a lew words
i of caution about
staking. Staked
plants are

subject to a
condition called blossom-end
rot than tomatoes which are
allowed to grow naturally.
You must be careful to avoid
plants root injury, when you
drive stakes into the ground.
Some popular tomato
varieties which benefit from
staking are: Floradel. Tropic
Indian River. and Manapal.
Those. which do well
unstaked. include Walter,
Tropi-Red. Homestead. and
Floramenca.
One method of staking,
\which seems to work well, is
to use one-by-tw\o wooden
stakes, about siL to eight feet
long. Drive these about two
feet into the soil. keeping
them three to four inches
from each plant. As the
plants grow. tie them to the
stakes with string, soft twine
Sor strioof rag.:You-ll prob-,
abl\ need to make between
lour end..ix .tieo'dunng the
Sgrowiing"'saason. AlIyas be:
sure you make the ties below


the fruit clusters.
Pruning is the process of
removing the small shoots
that develop between the leaf
stems and the main plant
stems. Removing these
shoots. or suckers, reduces
the total number of fruit that
your tomato plants will pro-
duce. But, it causes the fruit
'that are produced to be
larger.
Tomatoes
should be pruned
about once a
week. And, it's
best to prune by
hand holding a
shoot firmly between
your thumb and fore-
finger, 'bend it to one
side until it snaps. Then.
pull the shoot off in the
opposite direction. Reversing
the direction is necessary to
prevent injury to the leaf axil
or the main stem.
When you prune. leave
two or three main stems for
plant development. And. be
careful not to disturb the
fruit buds, which appear just
above, or just below, the
point where the leaves are
attached to the leaf stems.
Staking and pruning are
beneficial steps in tomato
culture. As I said, staking
certain varieties keeps fruit
off the ground, reducing
some disease problems.
And, it helps conserve space
in the garden. Pruning
removes the small side
branches, called suckers.

might get hit by bullets. This
scene so excited my grandfa-
ther that he decided to join
the navy and get in the
action. He immediately
moved his family back to
Apalachicola and hitched a
ride on a sailboat to Tampa
to join the navy, requesting
duty on a fighting ship.
Naturally, he was assigned to
a freighter hauling cattle
from Tampa to Cuba for
meat for the troops. He


requested a transfer to
another ship but this request
was denied. While anchored
in Tampa Bay, one night he
slid down a line, swam
ashore and deserted his
ship. The next morning he
joined the navy under an
assumed name, again
requesting duty on a fighting
ship. This time he was
assigned to a gunboat going
to Cuba. Sometime after
arriving in Cuba, the ship
ran aground and while
aground was attacked by a
Spanish vessel so he finally
got the action he had been
looking for. Many years later,'
he applied for a Spanish-
American War Pension but
was denied because he was a
deserter under his correct
name. This all got started
because of a Sunday after-
noon visit to the Cape San
Bias lighthouse.
This episode was passed
on to me by my father, Fred
Maddox.

Graduating Track .


The Star

PAGE FOUR THURSDAY, May 12, 2005


. Huk Down4 W4 Ke4

I by Kesley Colbert
;sA


The graduation of another high
school class typically fuels a cacoph-
ony of cheers, the tossing of mortar
boards and speeches from upstand-
ing folks and class leaders to the
graduates concerning the gravity.
and the levity, of the life on which
they are about to embark.
It seems entirely reasonable that
many of the graduates from Gulf and
Franklin county high schools might
be pondering a different type of dis-
course concerning the future of their
corner of the globe.
A recent labor market assess-
ment prepared for the Gulf Coast
Workforce Board by the Wadley-
Donovan Group and Younger Associ-
ates out of New Jersey underscores
some of the questions they might be
asking, the answers that must be
sought.
Worker skills does not seem to be
much of an issue, with the labor
force along the Gulf Coast Region -
Gulf, Franklin and Bay-counties -
providing a solid availability of a
variety of skills.
There is a "significant" hidden
workforce, with a variety of skills, a
desire to be trained and plenty of
retirees.
Work ethic is okay in general,
though computer skills could be bet-
ter.
Yet there is work to do in part-
nering education and workforce
development, and addressing wages
which are generally below national,
state and industry averages and
benchmarks.
In other terms, a dearth of high-
paying quality jobs, save for in
health care, which, as with educa-
tion and teachers, is facing a nation-
al crunch of truly scary proportions.
The most pressing concern, the
highest potential drag on the region-
al economy, however, was the lack of
affordable housing, particular for
those of low and moderate incomes.
And as it was so succinctly put
this week during a recent meeting of
the board which is acting at the
behest of the housing coalition, a lot
of folks are watching to see how we,
as a county and as a region, handle
this naggingly intractable problem of
putting roofs over the heads of the
worker bees.
And, according to the study,
those worker bees are both present
and among the 'counted, but are
also, in general, accountable, well
worthy of having that roof.
The mark of true growth, though,
as it has been through the ages, is
the ability to maintain and nurture
the species, to move forward by tap-
ping into the potential of the suc-
ceeding generations.


Will these graduates of 2005 be
able to realize their potential here,
with jobs that pay a living wage and
put food on the table. homes that
don't come equipped with mortgage
and tax bills which resemble the
budget of small countries and the
opportunity to find the water without
passing through as many gates as at
La Guardia Airport?
The mill is gone; the fishing
around these parts more wallet-
draining than wallet-filling.
It is simply, to a significant
degree, not the world of their moth-
ers and fathers.
Heck, it's not even the world of
their freshmen years.
There are efforts afoot to scale
the hurdles which will be found
down the road.
The housing coalition, with its
private sector partnerships, provides
an optimistic example, maybe even
running ahead of its own legs at
times, but racing to meet a critical
need.
The county and cities need to join
the ballgame in some form or fash-
ion, though the ultimate answer is to
be found less with government if for
no other reason than government is
too often reactive rather than proac-
tive.
Agendas, axes and, maybe most
of all given the fundamental nature
of development, access, all conspire
against any foresight that might be
brought to bear from government.
Even voter mandates are there to
ignore or overturn.
The housing coalition works
because folks in the private sector -
the side of the dragon people call The
St. Joe Co. which seems rarely paint-
ed had the foresight to try to put
this region ahead of the arc.
That they have kept whacking
away at the elusive ball is testament
both to the importance of the issue
as the doggedness, and more impor-
tantly sense of social responsibility,
to be found in this group.
Similar efforts must be midwived,
as the workforce survey illustrated
so plainly in black and white, across
the board. As much as there is con-
cern about the present, the future
looms larger each day.
So at a time when those buzz-
words of development and growth
threaten to scalp the landscape and
transform these areas it is not far-
fetched that some of the Class of
2005 might harbor a few concerns
about what forgotten just might truly
mean in a decade, in two decades.
And some might fear that what is
forgotten is them.


I&LI
I felt. trapped!
I thought of Robinson
Crusoe. And the Birdman of
Alcatraz. And that lady in
the phone booth in the old
Alfred Hitchcock movie
where the birds kept flying
into the glass; And didn't
Tom Hanks do a picture
show about a guy who
couldn't get out of an air-
port terminal......
I stood in Concourse D,
by the ATM machine, near
Gate 22 and pondered my
plight. I had been in this
airport for what seemed like
weeks! We had missed our
scheduled flight by ten min-
utes. We had waited
through one cancellation,
six flight delays, two thun-
derstorms, fifteen .gate
changes, an Israeli-Pales-
tinian War and an extra
mad "executive" yelling that
he was going to sue every-
one from the ticket handler
to Charles Lindberg if they
didn't get him on a plane
Truth be told, I would
have been yelling too, but I
had already ascertained
that yelling didn't seem to
have much effect on air line
employees at the Atlanta
International Airport. Calm
reasoning didn't have much
effect. Threatening didn't
have much effect. Crying
didn't have much effect....
So I waited.
"Flight 4240 to Panama
City scheduled to leave at
Gate 24," it was the voice
from out of nowhere again,
"has been re-assigned to
Gate 22 and it has been
delayed. Sorry for the
inconvenience."
The hundred and fifty
people on stand-by didn't
even groan this time, they
had heard this announce-
ment so many times....as a
matter of fact, they
laughed. Only in America!
I turned to Danny Raf-
field, who was stuck with
me. "I'm hungry." Cathy
and I had flown out of
Phoenix at 9:30 that morn-
ing. I'd had an in-flight Diet
Coke and a cracker with
some kind of cream cheese
spread on it. Not exactly
what Mama would. have
fixed! It was now after
10:00pm.
JoAnne or Emily men-
tioned that the airline was
giving out seven dollar meal
vouchers for all the passen-


Marooned!


gers that had missed flights
or had their lights canceled
or delayed. I was in all three
categories! I was thinking I
could be eligible for multi-
plevouchers when the gate
attendant placed a meal
ticket to Starbucks in my
hand.
Starbucks!
"Ma'am, Starbucks ain't
got nothing that I want! Do
I look like a latte and
scones man to you?" Cathy,
who knows I have never set
foot in a Starbucks, is
laughing uncontrollably. "I
want the all you can eat
voucher to Billy Bob's Down
Home Real Southern Pit
Smokehouse Barleque!"
As the lady is trying to
explain the limitations on
the voucher plan, the "voice
from nowhere" calls out our
names. We sprint down to
Gate 22 with our stand-by
papers in our hand. It was a
miracle We passed through
and were actually headed to
a plane. Cathy grabbed my
arm, "I hate to leave Danny
and JoAnn, maybe we
should wait-"
"Nonsense!" I had been
here about as long as I
could stand. "In the airport
game, it's every family for
themselves!"
We got the last two
seats. We were not together.
But we were on the plane I
looked down at my watch---
11:251 That's terrible, but
it's better than sleeping in
the airport. I was seat belt-
ed in and.ready! The plane
wasn't. We wait. And wait.
And wait..... I'm getting a
little anxious when a differ-
ent "voice" comes on,
"Would Mr. and Mrs. Col-
bert raise their hands?"
Nuts!
I don't move except to
glance back two seats to
where Cathy is.sitting. She
had her hand high above
her head, waving obedient-
ly. It's the school teacher in
herl
I hear the not so covert
stewardess announce to
her that the plane is over-
weight and someone has
got to get off. Cathy imme-
diately starts explaining
that "she and her husband,
sitting right up there in the
seat by the window, are a
team and we must get off
together."
When the lady comes to
"get" me, I jump up.. point to
Cathy and declare, "I've
never seen that woman in


my life!" They persuaded
me to de-plane. But it took
two of those big baggage
handlers....and I went kick-
ing and screaming.
I rushed down to Gate
24. Flight 4242 was board-
ing. It was the absolute last
flight out for the evening. I
reasoned that I should still
be first in line for a stand-
by seat. "No, Mr. Colbert,
you're not even on the
stand-by list, our records
show that you are on Flight
4240 on your way to Pana-
ma City."
I pondered on that for a
few seconds, "Ma'am, in
that case, do you happen to
know if Starbucks serves a
barbeque scone?"
They turn the heat off
in the airport a little bit
after midnight. I was freez-
ing on that hard floor. I was
hoping to drift off to sleep
so I could dream about the
sheep skin coat Randolph
Scott wore in "Ride the High
Country". No matter how
high they rode, or how
much snow, he looked so
warm.... it's near 'bout
impossible to drift any-
where with your teeth chat-
tering to beat the band And
to make sure you don't
sleep, every ten minutes
they make that announce-
ment about not leaving
your luggage unattended or
holding a package for a
stranger .....
Danny scrounged up a
blanket for me sometime
around 3am. He may have
saved my life I vowed not to
leave -the airport without
him or the girls. Of course,
the prospect of leaving did-
n't look overwhelmingly
good. Every plane going my
way had left. All the ticket
people were gone...one, of
which had my stand-by
ticket in her grubby little
hand. I was too cold to walk
anywhere even if they called
my name. It had started
raining again. Randolph
Scott was dead. And,
according to the records, I
was already home
I watched the sun come
up with an aching back,
hollow stomach, pounding
headache and blood shot
eyes.....but with hope for
this new day that springs
eternal Starbucks would
be open in a few minutes....

Good Morning Sunshine

Sunshine, out my window, makes me happy.
Sorry, had a little John Denver moment.
But the fact is that despite some.phone, e-mail and com-
puter network problems, some of us are feeling a little Rocky
Mountain high about moving into a new location.
This one comes equipped with enormous floor-to-ceiling
windows providing a scenic backdrop the outdoors to
producing this newspaper each and every week.
This is not to say anything about our former home
upstairs of the office store which once bore the name of The
Star and which is now Ramseys' Printing and Office Supply.
But anyone who has traversed that long set of stairs
leading to our offices,-or spent time in what we called, affec-
tionately and, at times, not so affectionately, the attic,
understands that our new space next to the Piggly Wiggly is
akin to raising the blinds to a picture window on a gorgeous
spring day.
Which has literally been the case the past few days as
the postcard weather which is as alluring as the Red Sox vic-
tory in the World Series in 2004 sorry Kes beams outside.
Writing these words while gazing at the sun-dappled
world a few feet away, well, John Denver could never have
been as giddy.
I'd even take the rain, which while up in the "attic" was

only known by the pounding on the roof which sounded like
league night at the bowling alley.
My main hope is that I'll learn the same lessons in this
sunny environment as I did up in that attic the past two-
.plus years.
For starters, the respect gained for Mr. Wesley Ramsey,
who occupied this space for so many years.
Every time I felt overwhelmed by trying to fill a 26- or 28-
or 30-page paper by myself, I was reminded consistently by
Kesley as it turns out, so I take back the apology about the
Red Sox about how Mr. Wesley filled the paper, granted a
smaller one, each week, bouncing from the garden club to
the County Commission with equal aplomb.
It provided a yardstick to reach for.
And I will miss the opportunities to interact on a daily
basis with Willie Rainsey.
We disagreed on much as we hardly occupied the same
space on the political spectrum, but Willie, and the commu-
nity he and his newspaper served, provided an insight for
which I will be forever indebted.
That every person has a story, that behind every story is
a real live person, or persons, who will be impacted, posi-
tively or negatively, by the words that are printed in these
pages each week.
That those people are the fabric of a community, the
threads that bind.
It's a lesson that those in Tallahassee could put to valu-
able use.
It was easy in the insulated world of the state capital
and the legislature to forget that on the receiving end of
every piece of legislation were real people.
In some ways, the Capitol Press Corps of which I was a
part for a few years has become just another branch of gov-
ernment. It's clear that this almost incestuous relationship
exists inside the Washington Beltway as well.
The press, as reflected in polls which show the media
residing, somewhere in the neighborhood of used car sales-
man as far as. public trust, has morphed from the Fourth

Estate into another rail of the political system.
And if they could spend just a few months, maybe a
year, in a small town community such as Port St. Joe,
reporters would quickly learn about the people who lay
between the lines of the stories they write, the legislation
they report about.
They would come to understand that the audience the
readers desire to be provided the news, without the filters
of politics and agendas, but with the personal touch that
reflect that the stories are about human beings, about the
human condition.
That was Willie, intent on providing community news
while remaining mindful of who made up that community,
what that community's aspirations and bedrock beliefs
were.
It was a lesson that came along at an important time in
my career, after several years in Tallahassee, and it was one
that provided new energy, a new cause.
It was a stoking of a flame that, in looking back on it
with the gift of hindsight, had been flickering a bit, having
been misdirected from what it was supposed to be illumi-
nating.
Such lessons are not lost with the move to the shopping
center which includes the Piggly Wiggly. They must not be.
The geography may have changed, but the goal remains
the same to provide a voice to a community and all that it
represents. To provide a beacon marking the community as
a spot of importance on the map, a place where people of
genuine substance reside.
To provide sunshine and a healthy dose of trans-
parency to the workings of the county, its schools, its health
care services and so much more. To tell the stories of the
people who march in and out of the Piggly Wiggly each day.
In that way, our new location could hardly provide a bet-
ter symbol to our mission.

Dear Editor,
As I prepare to leave Port
St. Joe and return to
Alabama I am experiencing a
real sense of sadness and
loss, but not regret. It is with
much sorrow that I find
myself writing this letter to
the citizens and residents of
Gulf County and Port St.
Joe. I clearly remember the
first day I arrived in this
wonderful community. I was
full of optimism, conviction
and eagerness to be a partic-
ipant in the revitalization of
Gulf Pines Hospital. One of
the first individuals I met
was Dr. Michael White and
he quickly echoed and reaf-
firmed my heartfelt excite-
ment for the future of this lit-
tle hospital. In a short span
of time the hospital went
from an empty, silent, almost
lifeless environment to an
energized, busy and produc-
tive one. Many hours were
spent in attempting to
accomplish a positive out-
come for all parties, but
unfortunately to no avail.
The depth of financial and
other obligations was, I
believe, as unknown to
Rainmaker and Medical
Capital, as I know they were
to me. A tremendous amount
of money was expended in an
effort to keep the doors of the
hospital open, but it was
akin to mindlessly dropping
it into a bottomless pit. I can
assure you, if it had not been
for the dedication and com-
mitment of Dr. White, the
E.R. would have closed long
before it did. He had, devoid
of -complaint, provided lov-
ing; compassionate and com-
petent care to all patients
presenting to the hospital
and did so because he'is a
first-class person. I have
been in the medical field for
over 30 years and trust you
just don't find physicians
like him every day.:'We both'


had felt if we cared enough
and worked hard enough we
could make things right, but
in the end we couldn't. In
one of the many news arti-
cles, recently printed, a very
disparaging comment was
written that "it only took
Mrs. Register six months to
close the hospital." What a
ridiculous statement. I only
hope you know better. I liken
that to the Captain of the
Titanic blaming the last per-
son who got on board for the
ship sinking.
Anyway, I hoped to see
this mission through to
fruition but unfortunately it
just wasn't meant to be.
Hope is once again high that
the hospital will soon be
open and I will continue to
pray that before long the cit-
izens of this community and
county will have access to
timely and appropriate emer-
gency medicine and acute
care. During my time in Port
St. Joe I have met some of
the most wonderful people in
the world; they have truly
blessed my life. There are a
few people I must expressly
direct gratitude and appreci-
ation to:
First, to the Mayor and
City Council, thank you for
stepping up to the plate and
supporting our efforts to get
the hospital reopened. The
letter to AHCA was greatly
appreciated. Next to Mr. Rish
and Mr. Scholz, thanks for
all your countless hours of
work, what great gentlemen
and excellent attorneys. Of
course, last but certainly not
least, my deepest admiration
and appreciation for Michael
White, M.D.
At this point I wish a list
of credits could roll, both
good and bad, listing the
names of those people who
should be acknowledged for
their contributions. But in
either case, you know who


you are.
To ex-employees of Gulf
Pines Hospital, as an update,
please know that informa-
tion regarding your payrolls
from December 2003 and the
last weeks of February 2005
have been provided the prop-
er governmental authorities.
In parting, I must say
what an adventure this has
been. It hasn't all been great
and certainly not all wonder-
ful, but definitely real. Until
we meet again, many heart-
felt thanks and I will miss
you.

Dear Editor,
In a time when so many
of our environmental protec-
tions are being weakened,
your readers should know
that some of their leaders in
Washington are standing up
for clean water in Florida.
The Bush administration in
Washington has a plan to
allow publicly-owned sewage
treatment plants to dump
untreated sewage in our
waters anytime it rains,
which would be disastrous
for tourism, fishing, and
public health.
Congressman Allen Boyd
took a stand against this
backward-thinking idea, and
The Clean Water Network
would like to thank him and
ask others to do the same.
Congressman Allen Boyd
joined 134 other members of
Congress, along with Florida
Senators Bill Nelson and Mel
Martinez, in signing a letter
,to the Environmental
Protection Agency opposing
this policy. We applaud his
leadership in protecting pub-
lic health, our economy and
our waters. Now congres-
sional leader Rep. Clay Shaw
from Ft. Lauderdale has
introduced the "Save Our
Waters from Sewage Act," to
try to stop EPA from moving

forward with its sewage
dumping policy. Please take
time to thank Congressman
Allen Boyd and encourage
him to co-sponsor this
important legislation.
Linda L. Young
Southeast Regional
Director
Clean Water Network
Tallahassee, FL

Dear Editor,
It's no secret that
Northwest Florida is explod-
ing with new development.
But at a time when the state
ought to be making smart
decisions, the Legislature
took us backward and
delayed some really impor-
tant protections for wetlands
smack in the path of the
development boom. Citizens
should urge Gov. Jeb Bush
to veto this bad bill, HB 759.
Haven't we learned from
South' Florida's mistakes?
Developers drained and filled
the southern part of the state
willy-nilly for years. Today,
citizens in the region are
paying the price. A place that
was once blessed with lots of
clean water now has drink-
ing water shortages, flood-
ing, and polluted rivers,
lakes, and bays.
Compare that to North'
Florida, which has some of
the cleanest water left in the
state. North Florida's water
is a treasure, and worth pro-
tecting! Too bad some
Florida lawmakers care more
about making developers
happy than they do about
protecting the Panhandle's
wetlands. Everyone in
Florida ought to care,
because Panhandle wetlands
clean water, buffer from
storms, and fuel the seafood
industry in the Gulf of
Mexico.
For years, the people of
Northwest Florida have been
treated like second-class cit-
izens. In 16 Northwest
Florida counties, the protec-
tions for wetlands and
stormwater management are
weaker than in the rest of the
state. In the rest of the state,
a developer who wants to
impact a wetland has to get
reviewed under the environ-
mental resource permitting
program, nicknamed ERP.
This program was supposed
to go into effect in Northwest
Florida in 1999, but the
Legislature keeps postponing
it to appease developers.
Because there is no envi-
ronmental resource permit-
ting in Northwest Florida,


developers who are cashing
in on the current boom don't
have to get a permit to fill in
so-called "isolated wetlands,"
which cover hundreds of
thousands of acres in
Northwest Florida. Without
environmental resource per-
mitting, developers also have
weaker rules on the
stormwater that comes off
their developments, which
means taxpayers have to
pick up the tab to deal with
more polluted water coming
off more paved surfaces.
Think about that the next
time a hurricane hits.
Gov. Bush wisely sup-
ports environmental
resource permitting, and
included $1.9 million in his
budget this year to fund it.
But a Republican .House
member from Fort Myers,
Trudi Williams, sponsored
HB 759, which will delay
Northwest Florida's resource
permitting program until
2010! That's time enough for
developers to fill in an awful
lot of wetlands.
Interestingly, Williams
used to sit on the board of
the South Florida Water
Management District, a
board that's spending bil-
lions to re-plumb the diked
and drained Florida


- oc C

E 1]Lt- Of


Everglades. Attention, Ms.
Williams: Northwest Florida
residents want to prevent
environmental disaster not
spend billions to fix it later.
All the other co-sponsors on
Williams' bill except one -
hail from South and Central
Florida.
Doesn't it seem odd that
people with ruined water
supplies at one end of the
state are trying to keep weak
protections in the Northwest,
one place where there's plen-
Sty of good water left? Does
that make any sense? The
Legislature should never
have gone along with this
naked attempt to appease
developers at the public's
expense.
Call Gov. Bush at 850-
488-2272, and tell him to
veto HB 759. Let's protect
our waters we're going to
need them.

Beauty at Any Age
By Virginia Bathhurst Beck
In most people's minds,
beauty is associated with
young beauty queens, movie
starlets, models and T. V.
Stars, but three people that I
have known have proved that
beauty knows no age. I would
like to tell you about those*
people now.
First there was Margaret.
Those who have known her
realize that her beauty
reached much deeper than
her beautiful face. It showed
through in her faith, loyalty,
love of her family and her
neighbors. She volunteered
her precious time to her
church, the Chamber of
Commerce, AARP and many
other community endeavors.
She and her husband, Frank
raised 10 children.


I believe that she willed
all her beautiful traits to
them. They are all educated
and have done well for them-
selves. I don't know what
career they all have, but
among them are a General, a
Major, a rancher and a
restaurant owner. Margaret,
you did good!
Then there was Agnes.
She was my husband's aunt
and lived next door to us. We
traveled in the same social
sphere, if you can call our
neighborhood group that. She
was a retired teacher, who
had guided and left her mark
on hundreds of children.
She was quite a bit older
than the rest of us, but she
had such a zest for life that
she didn't want to be left out
of anything. We didn't want to
leave her out either. If you


VQul ..V mboierV.abi
&M FM i poti / J 6 ',,~y


invited her to go with the
group anywhere, you needed
to give her plenty of notice.
Although she was a very pret-
ty lady, she vowed she needed
plenty of time to make herself
beautiful.
When she was ready to
go, BEAUTIFUL SHE WAS!
She had her make up on to
perfection, although she did-
n't need it over her smooth,
smooth skin. She often stated
that soap never touched her
face, only the most expensive
creams. And I believed her.
There was nary a wrinkle that
had dared to blemish her
youthful skin. She dressed in
the latest fashions, wore silk
hose and had never given in
to old ladies shoes although
she was well over 80 years
old. Her favorite saying was
"It's alright to be old, but you


don't have to act old."
Last but not least, there
is Thelma, my best friend.
She is 94 years old now and
lives in Colorado Springs. We
don't get together very often,
but when we do, the age dif-
ference disappears. My hus-
band, Danny, is her second
best friend. We were out to
visit her two years ago and
she just about wore us out
keeping up with her as she
showed us the sights. We
went with her to a ranch cook
out in the Colorado
Mountains and really enjoyed
it. The last place she took us
was gambling at Cripple
Creek. We offered to drive,
but she said no, she knew the
road better. It's a good thing
we didn't drive It was all
mountains and curves. I'll
swear she drove 70 miles an


hour on two wheels some of
the time. I guess she knew
the road. We made itl
She is a good driver. Her
husband has been dead for
some time, and she has dri-
ven by herself all over the
country. She is another one
who has not taken a negative
view of old age. She always
mowed her own lawn and
even touched up her paved
driveway when it needed it. A
few years ago she roofed her
shed. She has taken line
dancing for years. The other
night she called me and excit-
edly told me she was now in
an advanced class.
She has wrinkles or
grooves, as I prefer to call
them, but they don't detract
from her beauty,-they are
just Thelma. I've seen recent
pictures where the camera


was very good to her. She still
looked like a movie star. She
is tall and slender. I don't
think she has ever had a
weight problem. A weekly hair
appointment is still on her
agenda. Her hair is a pretty
shade of red, but I think she
gets help from the beauty
parlor on that.
Well you've met my three
friends who carried their
beauty into their old age.
They were beautiful people
both inside and out. I hope
that I am a better person for
having known them.

FORGOTTEN GARDENING


by Kay Kelley
Now is a good time to
start really looking at your
plants, examining their leaves
top and bottom, and analyz-
ing their color. This is a plea-
sure when they are growing
well and in good health. It is
an exercise in frustration
when they are not. Most of

us know when a plant is
unhappy, but most of us
don't know why, or what to do
about it, other that to spray it
with 'something'.
Diagnosing plant prob-
lems is an art and takes years
of practice, but we all start
somewhere. I personally
can't always tell which insect
is a cottony scale and which
one is a mealy bug, but I
know they both will suck the
life right out of my plants if I
don't control them. I don't
always remember whether
the lack of iron in a plant
gives it inter-veinal or intra-
veinal chlorosis, but I know
that most plants appreciate
an iron supplement occasion-
ally. I do know that when a
plant wilts it could be
because it is either too dry or
too wet. Both conditions pro-
duce the same symptom.
And I know that if a leaf has a
dead spot on it, it could be
because an insect has pierced
it and eaten the inside of the
leaf, but if the spot is circular
and made up of concentric
rings, it is likely a fungal dis-
ease.
Most conditions .of plant
health come right back
around to the soil a plant
grows in. If that soil has a
deep rich color and smells a
good earthy smell, if every
shovel turns up a bounty of
earthworms, then either A)
you don't live in Florida, or B)
someone has done a lot of
improving to that particular
piece of ground. Healthy
plants grow out of healthy
soil, and like children, when
they are given good nutrition
and plentiful water, they don't
pick up- every disease that
comes by. Nutritional imbal-
ance isn't a problem in
healthy soil. Even drought is
less of a problem, because the
plant isn't under stress to
begin with. Insects? Well,
you would think those little


buggers would prefer big,
juicy, healthy leaves, but they
will more likely attack a plant
already under stress from
some other problem.
The real trick is in know-
ing when a symptom is really
a problem, and knowing
when it's not. For instance,
every year someone will call
me in a near panic because
the leaves are turning yellow
on some shrub in their yard.
Within a few questions I usu-
ally hear that the oldest
leaves on the plant are the
ones turning yellow, and I
explain that part of the cycle
of a plant's life is shedding
old leaves as new leaves grow.
But if someone tells me that
the new leaves are turning
yellow, then I know they
might have a problem. It
bears asking a few more


questions, though. Every
now and then it turns out
that the plant in question is a
variegated variety, and the
new growth is supposed to be
yellow.
Even more often I am
asked what to do about leaves
that are being chewed on.
Believe me, I understand the
deep concern of someone who
has paid seventy five dollars
for a citrus tree, and has just
discovered a hole in a leaf.
But if you have to look hard
to find two or three chewed
leaves, you do not have a
problem. My most famous
advice? Which is, incidental-
ly, in direct conflict with my
earlier advice? Don't look so
closely!

In other business con-
ducted during Monday's
meeting:
Commissioners estab-
lished a payment plan and an
amortization schedule
through the city for families
and individuals wishing to
purchase plots at Buckhorn
Cemetery.
Commissioners
approved a single-source pur-
chase for an upgrade to the
computer and software which
operates the city wastewater
treatment plant. Given the
immediate need to repair the
computer, commissioners
went with Rockwell, which
installed the computer and
performs periodic maifite-
nance.
The cost of the contract
was just over $4,700.
An interlocal agreement
with the county was approved
by commissioners as part of
the Community Development
Block Grant the city has


received for expansion of
water lines throughout the
city limits.
The agreement stems
from the extension of water
lines to Old Transfer Road
and the belief that once lines
have reached that point some
residents on the other side of
the road, in unincorporated
county areas, would want
water service from the city.
Commissioners
approved a resolution which
confirms the city's position
that N. Fifth Street, between
Osceola and Sawmill roads,
had been vacated. The actual
vacating of the road dates
back several decades, but the
resolution puts punctuation
to the action.
The road has never been
open to the public and, in
essence, the owners -on each
side of the road now possess
half the roadway as part of
the property, as dictated by
Florida law.

Port St. Joe High School Honors Top Scholars


by Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
Dr. Lenora Peters Gant is
not.in the business of telling
secrets, but she was willing
to toss a few pearls of wis-
dom in the direction of Port
St. Joe's brightest.
The 1965 graduate of
Port St. Joe's Washington
High School and current
director of Intelligence
Community Centers of
Academic Excellence has
spent an illustrious career in
the intelligence field.
Gant's previous assign-
ments include several years
as a human capital issues
adviser to the Director of
Central Intelligence (DCI)
and the Deputy DCI for
Community Management
(CM).
The daughter of the late
Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Peters,
Sr., Gant returned to her
hometown on Monday night
to address the Port St. Joe

Gant promised to share
with the gathered crowd of

bers and community digni-
taries the seven secrets of
her success.
Then she added: "Most of
you know that I work for the
CIA, and if I tell you any
secrets, I'll have to shoot
you.
Continuing her address,
Gant allowed for a special
category of secrets, one she
was happy to share with the
students.
Gant began with some
advice on personal integrity.
"Be the best at what you do,
put your, best 'efforts, into
each and every endeavor,"
Gant said.


their base of knowledge.
Arguing that there are
three types of people: "those
who make things happen,
those who watch things hap-
pen, and those who wonder
what happened," Gant asked
the students to expand their
conception of what is possi-
ble and take an active role in
shaping the future.
"In this new world order,
there are no entitlements,"
said Gant. "When you see
something that's not right,
do what you can to improve
it."


Gant encouraged the '
students to leave a positive F iB = a
legacy behind and concluded ''. ..

Underscoring the impor-
tance of interpersonal rela-
tionships, Gant warned the
students to choose their
associates carefully -
"Friends are like buttons on
an elevators, some will take
you up and some will take
you down" and encouraged
the formation of lasting rela-
tionships based on mutual
respect.
"Build relationships with
people who are honest with
you who'll tell you your
weaknesses," Gant advised.
Holding a B.S. degree
from Florida A & M
University, a Masters from
George Peabody College of
Vanderbilt University, a
Ph.D. from Virginia
Polytechnic Institute and
State University, and certifi-
cations from several execu-
tive programs, Gant urged
the students to focus on con-
tinuos learning to broaden
their horizons and expand


"And thank you for inviting
me to come back home."
Principal Duane
McFarland and vice principal
Melissa Ramsey conferred
Gold Card certificates and
plaques on 'the 101 Gold
Card Club members from
grades 9-12 in recognition of
the students' academic
achievements.
Students receiving cer-
tificates made the A/B honor
roll two of three times during
the first three nine-week
grading periods.
Students taking home
plaques earned either a 4.0
cumulative semester grade
point average and all A's dur-
ing the last grading period or
all A's for each of the three
individual nine-week grading
periods.
After the awards presen-
tation, Ramsey encouraged
the honor students to take
advantage of the scholarship
opportunities available to
Gulf County youth.
Ramsey urged the stu-
dents to check out
www.facts.org, a website that
analyzes students' tran-
Sscripts, for eligibility for spe-
cific colleges, financial aid,
and the Bright Futures
Scholarship.
A $30,000 Gulf County
Scholarship Program fund
will be distributed to stu-
dents based on a point sys-
tem in the areas of school
attendance, grades, perfor-
mance on standardized tests
and parent participation.
Ramsey reminded the
students to-turn in their
point sheets attached to their
June 15 final report card.
"It's that simple to get
the money," said Ramsey.
Noting that students
took home $750,000 worth


of scholarships at last year's
graduation, Ramsey con-
cluded by saying, "Seek and
you will find scholarship
opportunities in Gulf
County."
In a surprise return to
the podium, Gant presented
school board member
Charlotte Pierce with a check
reimbursing the board for
her return plane fare, and
gave Gold Card Club chair-
person Donna Parker a
check for $30,000 to contin-
ue the club's good work.
In his closing remarks,
McFarland thanked Gant for
accepting the school board's
invitation to. speak, adding,
"This place is such an amaz-
ing community, it's hard not
to come back."

the beauty shop.
White faithfully reports
her findings to her cus-
tomers, also taking time to
give the latest update on
family happenings.

'A A I


White keeps a family pic-
ture near her on her work
counter, and often makes
reference to her late hus-
band, Larry White, whom
she calls the "best man who
ever lived," late son, Clay


Lister Cox, grandchildren,
Donnie Cox, Garry Cox and
Tonya Cox, and her two
great-grandchildren.
White's grandson Garry
owns the Bayou Restaurant
and has an employee deliver
a plate to the shop every day
at lunch time. On Friday
morning, White put in a
request for a taco salad and
anxiously awaited the plate's
arrival.
"They bring it to me,
honey," said White. "This is
the madam over here,
whether you know it or not."
White invites her grand-
children over for dinner every
Sunday at the "White
House," her late husband's
nickname for their home.
"On Sunday, they eat it
all back," White laughed.
This week, White's din-
ner guests will be treated to
potato salad, deviled eggs
and White's famous butter-
nut cake, her grandkids'
favorite.
When Kemp heard the
announcement of the cake,
she swung around in her
seat. "Do you know how to
cook any other kind?"
"Butternut is their

favorite, Viola," instructed
White. ."They don't like any
other kind."
When Rossie, a fellow
cake maker, arrived for her
hair cut and joined in the
teasing, White issued a
warning.
"Your time's coming, old
girl," White promised Rossie.
"I'm going to get you in a
minute. You better watch
what you say."
With White out of
earshot and attending to a
customer, Kemp compli-
mented her friend.

Port Authority FroPa IA


Bridge.
In a special workshop on
April 6, the Port Authority
offered several recommenda-
tions to city and county offi-
cials to acquire the land for
port reactivation.
Among the recommenda-
tions was the use of eminent
domain to seize the disputed.
property.
Even with alternatives
such as an ad valorem tax,
an additional sales tax or
declaration of the existing
bulkhead as a- Community
Redevelopment Area. (CRA),
the Port Authority failed to
gain support of city or coun-
ty officials.
'The community has got-
ten to the point they want a
port, but I don't think there
is a political desire for a port.
'The community needs
to make a statement."
The wait is now on that
lawyers continue hammering
out the details as they've
done since December.
The encouraging aspect
for the Port Authority is the
possibility of entering into a
real estate transaction with
the St. Joe Company.
Chairman Cox said in a
regularly scheduled Port
Authority meeting Monday at
the Gulf County library that
after receiving a term sheet
on June 10 from the St. Joe
Company, he hoped to con-
summate a real estate trans-
action in the next 90 days.
The regular meeting
came after a follow-up meet-
ing between St. Joe, Cox and
both party's legal representa-
tives that was described as a
positive step toward negoti-
ating the purchase of rough-
ly 140 acres.


Funding sources for the
Port Authority, which lacks a
customer base, is unclear.
Cox firmly said he
believed the St. Joe
Company would return the
term sheet with a fair market
value price.
Three other financial
resources currently exist
that could potentially aid the.
Port Authority in obtaining
land to establish a port.
Cox said, without offer-
ing specifics, a couple of
commercial financing oppor-
tunities had been made
available.
Pitts, scheduled to
attend a Florida Seaport
Transportation and
Economic Development
(FSTED) meeting in
Fernandina around the same
time the term sheet is
expected to be delivered back
to the Port Authority, briefed
the group on availability of
FSTED funds for the current
fiscal year.
The Port Authority
received an FSTED grant in-
2001 to improve existing
bulkhead in preparation for
an automobile import indus-
try, but a recession and
9/11, "changed things," Pitts
said, and no further
improvements were made at
the site.
Pitts recommended to
the group a formulation of a
plan to spend the existing
FSTED funds.
A unanimous vote gave
Pitts the authority to request
$1 million in FSTED funding
tq.be matched by $1 million
of Port Authority money to
begin the land purchase
process.

White points to a cartoon

It's a motto White has

Last Wednesday, Project
ChildSafe coordinator Chris
Sessions traveled to Gulf
County in one of the project's
15 mobile safety vehicles to
deliver 1,000 gun locks for
distribution at the Gulf
County Sheriffs Department
and the Wewa substation.
In Port St. Joe, Captain
Bobby Plair was on hand to
receive the locks. Plair noted
that the gun locks received a
good response from the com-
munity during last year's
Project ChildSafe campaign,
with many residents request-
ing the firearm safety kits.
"They didn't last long
last time," Plair said.
Though the Project aims


to prevent fire-arm related
accidents, with a special
emphasis on ensuring that
unlocked guns don't reach
the hands of children,
Sessions noted that the pro-
ject is "still too young" to
measure its rate of success.
"You just put these locks
out there and they'll do their
job," said Sessions before
setting out for another coun-
ty to deliver another box of
gun locks.
To receive a free gun lock

DUI Sobriety Checkpoints
The Port St. Joe Police
Department is committed to
promoting safety for all citi-
zens. The Port St. Joe Police
Departments goal is to
ensure everyone using the
highway and roadway sys-
tem may do so safely and to
provide a deterrent for those
who violate laws.
Enforcement is a tool to facil-
itate the achievement of this
safety. Recognizing that alco-
hol is consistently involved
in many crashes resulting in
a fatality mandates unwaver-
ing attention. Reducing
death and injury associated
with impaired drivers is one
of the most important objec-
tives. The State of Florida,
Gulf County and the City of


Port St. Joe provide the road-
way as a benefit to the public
at large. Accordingly, these
agencies seek to safeguard
all drivers through the use of
a non-intrysive checkpoint
to detect and remove
impaired drivers from the
road.
The use of the Roadside
Safety Checkpoint, public
education and enforcement
are combined to achieve and
enhance the reduction in
deaths and injuries caused
by impaired vehicle opera-
tors. These law enforcement
agencies are dedicated to
aggressive DUI law enforce-
ment. Zero tolerance of DUI
continues to be top priority
in traffic law enforcement.
'The Port St. Joe Police
Department will be conduct-
ing DUI Sobriety
Checkpoints on Highway 98,
Highway 22 and Highway 71
throughout this year in effort
to maintain a safe driving
environment for all drivers.
Lost and Found
On May 6, a 12-volt elec-
tric "Coleman" ice chest was
found in the road near the
intersection of Highway 98
and First Street. Anyone

this item please contact the
Port St. Joe Police
Department at (850) 229-

"Buckle Up in Your Truck"
Pickup truck drivers and
their passengers are among
those Americans least likely
to regularly wear their safety
belts according to the
National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration
(NHTSA).
That is why the Port St.
Joe Police Department is
pleased to join with NHTSA,
the Florida Department of
Transportation, and law
enforcement leaders across
an eight-state region in the
Southeastern U.S. to launch
an aggressive new public
awareness initiative called
"Buckle Up In Your Truck."
Our goal is simple: to
save more lives on our road-
ways by convincing pickup
truck drivers and their pas-
sengers to always buckle up.
Reminding pickup truck
occupants to always wear
their safety belts is impor-,
tant because that is their
single best defense against
ejection in a crash. In fact,
that simple step of always
buckling up will increase
your odds of survival by 70
percent,to 80 percent if you
have a rollover crash.
According to NHTSA,
there were 1,677 fatalities


from pickup truck crashes in
the Southeastern U.S. in
2003. Seventy-one percent of
the pickup truck occupants
involved in those crashes
were not buckled up at the
time of the crash. Roughly 37
percent of these fatalities
were involved in a rollover
crash.
While rollovers can hap-
pen in any kind of passenger
vehicle, pickup trucks are
twice as likely to roll over as
cars, because they have a
higher center of gravity. And
even more alarming, the
ejection rate for occupants of
light trucks in a crash is
nearly double the rate for
those in cars. Much of that
comes from folks not wearing
their safety belts.
Ourn "Buckle Up In Your
Truck" campaign includes a
variety of public outreach
activities including television
and radio promotion in tar-
geted markets where pickup
truck fatalities have been
most prevalent in Alabama,
Florida, Georgia, Kentucky,
Mississippi, North Carolina,
South Carolina and
Tennessee. It immediately
precedes the intensive Click
It or Ticket national safety
belt enforcement mobiliza-
tion set this year for May 23
- June 5'
The eight Southeastern
states participating in the
"Buckle Up In .Your Truck"
campaign contain approxi-
mately 20 percent of the
nation's population but rep-
resent approximately 26 per-
cent of the nation's traffic
fatalities.
Nationally, drivers and
passengers in pickup trucks
consistently have lower safe-
ty belt usage rates than the
occupants of automobiles,
vans and sport utility vehi-
cles (SUVs). According to
NHTSA's 2004 National
Occupant Protection Use
Survey (NOPUS), the
observed safety belt use rate
was only 70 percent in pick-
up trucks compared to 81
percent in passenger cars
and 83 percent in SUVs and
vans. A 2004 statewide
observational survey showed
safety belt usage among
pickup truck occupants in
Florida was even lower at
only 65.6 percent..
Young men (ages 16-34)
driving or riding in pickup
trucks, particularly those
observed in rural areas, are
among those least likely to
regularly wear their safety
belts. In 2003, 70 percent of
the pickup truck drivers
killed in traffic crashes were
not buckled up.
Only 21 percent of


Americans live in rural
areas, yet in 2002, rural traf-
fic crashes accounted for 60
percent of the total traffic
fatalities on the nation's
highways.
Please join us to regular-
ly remind all pickup truck
drivers and their passengers
to always "Buckle Up In Your
Truck." That single simple
step could help save your life
- or the life of someone you
know or love.

Mayor Kathy Kingsland
said she would not miss

covered in sunscreen,
immersed in a book and
looking up to see a police car
driving down the beach,
looking for her to sign
checks.
The final meeting of the
current Mexico Beach city
council' on Tuesday night
was an emotional one.
Among Kingsland
Accomplishments in her four
and a half years as mayor,
she cited improved commu-
nications with citizens, com-
pletion of the pier extension
project, development of a
visioning plan and renova-
tions of city facilities, among
other things.
"It would be impossible
for me to name all the
accomplishments or recog-
nize all people involved," she
began.
Kingsland gave an emo-
tional tribute to councilman
David Thompson, noting
development of deep respect,
admiration and kinship with
him.
Council members
.Christine Brinkmeier, Sandie
Yarbrough and Thompson
will all be stepping down

"This council will be a

As she introduced the
new council, Kingsland men-
tioned to on-going canal and
beach renourishment pro-
jects that will be taken up by
the next administration.
She encouraged citizens
to have patience with the
new council as they prioritize
and move forward with these
projects.
The swearing in ceremo-
ny for the new council,
including Al Cathey, Curtis
Dale, Bob Ginsberg, Gary
Woodham with Chuck
Risinger assuming the may-
oral seat, will take place on
June 6 at 11:45 a.m. CDT.
Chris Forehand of Preble

current council to give
updates on various projects,
including the contentious
closure of the boat trailer
parking off Highway 98.
Forehand said he met
with the Department of

ago, and they told him
access to this parking lot
would not be permitted.

Choice of Business Entity


by Keith L. Jones, CPA
Starting a new business
i venture can be an over-
whelming experience with
many, many important busi-
ness issues to consider.
Arguably, the most critical
decision a small business
owner makes is the choice of
entity. The use of LLCs and
LLPs is becoming more and
more popular. However,
these entities come with sig-
nificant tax, accountingand
business issues that one
should be aware of.
Thoughtful consideration of
entity choice is essential in
order to accomplish one's
goals.
Get advice before you
leap
Often, entrepreneurs do
not fully understand their
choices when it comes to
choice of entity. Also, small
privately owned businesses
do not always give their CPA
Sa chance to be involved from
inception. It is not uncom-
Smon to find a situation
Where someone creates an


artificial entity such as a LLC
or LLP and does not involve
their tax advisor.
Unfortunately, the type of
entity chosen is based on
current trends, not on one's
knowledge and comprehen-
sion of the tax and account-
ing issues. More often than
not, the practitioner is con-
sulted after year-end, just to
prepare tax returns.
Cover all your bases
When you seek advice,
make sure your tax advisor
addresses every form of busi-
ness entity available: sole
proprietorship, general or
limited partnership, limited
liability company (LLC), lim-
ited liability partnership
(LLP), S corporation, profes-
sional corporation and C cor-
poration. Your discussion


should include recordkeep-
ing, tax, non tax, and
accounting issues. Federal,
state, and local regulations
for each type of entity should
also be covered.
The ballgame is relative-
ly new
Some of the entities
available for use are relative-
ly new. Therefore, many in
small business are still
learning how to make them
work, and how to handle
specific items. Tax and
accounting problems stem-
ming from their choice of
entity might have been
avoided had they consulted
with their most trusted busi-
ness advisor, their CPA.
Next week: What is an
LLC?


The Board voted to
make a recommendation for
tax abatement to the value
adjustment board for a
Beacon Hill resident. A por-
tion of county-owned Beacon
Hill Park is encroaching on
his private property.
Commissioner Bill
Williams discussed citizen
use of the spoil beach in
Highland View that resulted
following the dredging of the
canal. He also discussed
reparation of the bulkhead at
the Highland View boat
ramp, and said he would be
holding a town hall meeting
on May 26 in White City.
Betty Ray Weston
appeared before the commis-
sion to request maintenance
work to correct the potholes
in the driveway and fencing
at Cape Palms Park.
Supervisor of Elections
Linda Griffin told the board
in a letter that Gulf County is
not scheduled for a General
Election until November
2006. In an earlier meeting,
commissioners discussed
taking the 1/2 cent sales tax
option to citizens in a special
election.
Griffin told commission-
ers of several conditions to
conduct a special election,,
including appropriate adver-
tising, a cost of $12,000 to
$15,000 and one piece of
ADA compliant equipment in
each voting precinct.

Sharks Sweep Through District Tournament


by Tim Croft
Star News Editor
The Port St. Joe High
School Sharks sailed
unblemished through dis-
trict play during the regular
season.
So it was -of little sur-
prise that they were barely
touched as they hosted the
district tournament last
week.
Cottondale and Sneads
mustered just three hits
combined against Port St.
Joe and the Sharks made
short work, by virtue of the
mercy rule, of both teams in
securing the District 3-2A
title.
The Sharks (22-4) hosted
Tallahassee Maclay (14-11),
the runner-up to North
Florida Christian in District
4-2A, on Tuesday.


By virtue of their 8-0 dis-
trict mark during the regular
season, the Sharks earned a
bye into the district tourna-
ment semifinals, where they
faced Cottondale, a winner
over Blountstown in the
opening round.
The Hornets were never
in the game, which ended
12-0.
Bart Lowry (7-1) shut
down Cottondale on one hit
over five innings the game
was ended after five on the
mercy rule while striking
out seven and walking just
one.
The Sharks put three
runs up in the first two
innings and then sealed the
win with a nine-run fourth
inning.
Travis Burge was 2 for 3
with a triple and two RBI.


Kenny McFarland was 2 for 4
with an RBI -and Andrew
Furr was 2 for 2 with a single
and double and one RBI.
In the championship
game, the Sharks were up
against Sneads, a 3-1 winner
over Wewahitchka in the
semifinals.
Burge (8-0) was domi-
nating over six innings on
the mound in the 10-0 victo-
ry again ended on the mercy
rule, striking out 12 and
walking none while allowing
just two hits.
Meanwhile the Sharks
scored in every inning but
the fifth, putting two runs on
the board in each of the first
two innings, as well as the
sixth frame, and three in the
third, one in the fourth.
McFarland paced the
attack, going 3 for 3 with a

St. Joe, Burge Shuts Down Maclay for QuarterFinal Win


by Tim Croft
Star News Editor
The book on Port St.
Joe High School southpaw
Travis Burge is if you are
going to get to him, a big
enough if, best to do so
early.
So it was Tuesday
night, as Burge scuffled a
bit the first two innings
before all but slamming the
door shut on Tallahassee
Maclay with the final pitch
of the second inning.
The Marauders could
not capitalize on two early
opportunities and Burge
(9-0 with an ERA well
south of 1.00) settled down
when it mattered to strike
out 12 and limit Maclay
(14-12) to four hits as the
host Sharks (23-4) secured
a 4-0 Region 1-2A quarter-
final victory.
It was a prototypical
win for a team which has
hit but three home runs all
season but possesses a
roster dominated by 11
seniors solid pitching,
sometimes spectacular


Senior lefty Travis Burge
struck out 12 and gave up just
four hits, allowing just one
baserunner after the third
inning.


defense and opportunistic
offense.
"There's nothing fancy
about us," said Port St. Joe
coach Chuck Gannon. "We
just try to throw the ball
over the plate and play
good defense.
"It was a good game for
the kids. They know what
this is about lose and you
go home."
The victory sends the
sixth-ranked Sharks into
the region semifinals,
where they will host the
winner of Tuesday's
Vernon-Baker tilt at 6 p.m.
CDT on Friday.
The first two innings
were telling at Shark Field
as Port St. Joe plated the
only runs Burge would
need and Maclay twice
squandered scoring
chances.
Andy Bajoczky dribbled
a single through the middle
and Michael Burchfield fol-
lowed with a seeing-eye
grounder through the hole
at shortstop to put two
runners on with one out for
Maclay in the top of the
first frame.
But Port St. Joe catch-
er Zach Williams fired a
howitzer to nail Bajoczky
off second base for the sec-
ond out and Burge fanned
Steven Castor to, end the
threat.
With two down in the
bottom of the inning, the
Sharks' Randall Johnson
hit a Texas-leaguer to right
field and Bart Lowry fol-
lowed with a single into
centerfield.
Justin McCroan plated
Johnson with a single to
right field, sending Lowry
to third, from where he
scored when Maclay pitch-
er Corbett Proctor
uncorked a wild pitch.
Proctor redeemed him-
self when he led off the top
of the second inning with a
double to right-centerfield.
He was sacrificed to third
but stranded there when
Burge struck out the final

two batters, the final strike
bringing a rare show of
emotion from the rangy
lefty as he left the mound.
That pitch also set a
tone which would charac-
terize the rest of the game
as Burge would strike out
the final batter in each
inning but the fifth. The
final two outs came cour-
tesy of Burge's left arm in
the second, fourth, sixth
and seventh innings.
"Early on I didn't have
my best stuff," Burge said,
noting that other than last
Thursday's District 3-2A
championship game he has
been largely unfamiliar
with the home mound this
season, pitching primarily
on the road. "But in the
later innings I got the ball
down in the zone and got in
a groove.
"Everybody knows to
jump on me early. If they
don't, I can get in a
groove."
He got help from
behind and a defense
which did not make an
error and executed several
outstanding plays.
In addition to Williams'
superb pick-off throw at
second base, shortstop
Kenny McFarland drifted
deep into foul territory
against the fence in short
left-field to make a diving
grab of a pop foul-to start
the fourth inning.
The Sharks scored
runs in each of the last two
innings to produce the final
margin.
With two outs in the
fifth inning, Johnson
ripped a single which
forcibly removed the glove
from the hand of the
Maclay first-baseman -that
allowed pinch runner Mica
Ashcraft to score from sec-
ond and Jordan Todd
brought home Lowry, who
led off the inning with a
single and was sacrificed to
second, with a two-out sin-
gle in the sixth.
The celebration was

The Lady Gators (22-6)

Sasser struck out a
career-best nine batters
while scattering 10 hits
and allowing single runs in
the fourth and fifth innings
en route to the victory.
Sasser, a senior typi-

has assumed the major

Sasser helped her own

SANDWICH TIPS FROM
LAURA WERLIN
' Grate firm cheese, don't
slice. It melts more quickly,
so you don't have to over-
toast the bread to get the
cheese to melt.
* Remove the rind first (rind
won't melt). If cheese is soft,
such as Camembert or Brie,
remove rind while cheese is
cold. To ensure proper melt-
ing, bring cheese to room
temperature before heating.
* Oozing is good. Don't
worry if some cheese comes
out during cooking process.
Werlin says to enjoy those
tasty bits in the bottom of the
pan. Pile on tle cheese,
then press it with the palm of
your hand to compress it.
* Use room temperature but-
ter for spreading on bread
(in most instances). Werlin .
says it spreads more evenly,
which makes it brown more
evenly. She generally uses
salted butter.
* Use 1/4-inch-thick bread
slices. If using rolls, cut in
half lengthwise, then pull out
some of the inside to make a
small well or trough.

Hawaiian/ Indian Culture Day at Port St. Joe Elementary


L : "_,t :- .. II
Malia Faipea dances frhe hula in the Port St. Joe Elementary
School auditorium. Faipea has been dancing the hula since she
was two years old. Along with her mother, Lisa, Faipea will
serve as a hula instructor in classes that begin this Thursday at
the Community Center in Port St. Joe.


by Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
It all started with combat
boots and a desperate desire
to hula.
While stationed in
Hawaii, Lisa Faipea snuck
out of the Army barracks
every chance she got to learn
the ancient art from
Hawaiian natives.
Years later, she passed
the tradition on to her
Polynesian daughter, Malia
Faipea, while also encourag-
ing her son, Justin
Armstead, to embrace his
Native American heritage by
becoming a grass dancer.
On Wednesday, the
threesome visited Port St.
Joe Elementary School to
share their unique talents
with the fourth grade classes
in the school's first-ever
Hawaiian/Indian Culture
Day.
In the morning,
Armstead took the stage to
perform the Indian grass
dance. The dance originated
with the Plains Indians, who
would stomp the grass down
to the ground before setting
up their camp.
Armstead learned the
dance while in fifth grade in
Hawaii, where he often per-
formed in Indian pow-wows.
Lisa Faipea sewed her
son's colorful outfit, a task
that took her four months to
complete. The beaded head-
dress worn by Armstead was
hand crafted by Miccosukee
Indians.
Later in the afternoon,


Malia Faipea dropped by to
demonstrate the hula to the
anxious crowd.
After completing a grace-
ful routine once performed in
honor of Hawaiian gods,
Faipea pulled several volun-
teers on stage to test their
hip shaking abilities.
The Faipeas also taught
the students a seated hula
dance called "Pearly Shells,"
which Malia recalled learn-
ing in third grade at a
Hawaiian elementary school.
"Pearly shells, pearly
shells, on the ocean, rising in
the sun, covering the shore,
when I see, my heart tells me
that I love you," repeated the
fourth graders, while execut-
ing a series of expressive
hand movements.
The Faipeas have formed
the Kapakai Nalo Outrigger
Canoe Club and Lisa Faipea
shared with the classes her
knowledge of outrigger pad-
dling.
Faipea said the sport has
existed for thousands of
years, originating as a means
of transportation from island
to island by the native
Polynesians.
Holding a replica of a
traditional 6-man outrigger,
Faipea noted that the canoe
club's 45-foot long, 400
pound canoe is currently
being constructed and is set
to arrive in July.
Faipea encouraged the
students to join the canoe
club as it paddled the waters
of Mexico Beach.
"Canoeing makes you

learned the dance while a fifth grader in Hawaii and has
danced several times at community events.


work together as a team,"
said Faipea, describing the
Hawaiian philosophy of
cooperation, or "laulima."
Giving the students
some parting gifts, Faipea
held a raffle for signed
posters featuring Malia and
Justin performing their
respective dances.
"I want Justin," said one


girl, rubbing her hands
together in anticipation.
Others were vying for the
hula-skirted Malia.
When the posters were
all distributed, some
swapped Justin for Malia,
others Malia for Justin.
Laulima was working its
magic in Port St. Joe
Elementary School.

woman ("wahine") and cowboy ("paiviolo").


Assisted by Malia Faipea, three fourth graders give their
rendition of the hula. The students also joined Justin Armstead
onstage to perform the Indian grass dance.

Port St. Joe Elementary Third Graders Stage Rocket Launch

4 .. ,l by Despina Williams Scrambling to the first


Olar bJLl WrCILt
The index fingers of five
Port St. Joe Elementary stu-
dents stood poised above
hand-held electron beam
launch controllers, their eyes
trained on the launch pad
ahead.
Standing behind their
five comrades, the anxious
throng of third graders held
their rockets close to their
chests, readying themselves
for the mission.
On the field where Shark
football players once scram-
bled for yardage, five evenly-
spaced rockets enjoyed a
brief moment of solitude
before being propelled 400
feet into the tension-filled air.
Then the countdown
began. "5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Blastoffl"
screamed the crowd.
And then silence.
St. Joe, we have a prob-
lem.


Urockx, a roll. L. S cjl JHig1
School student volunteer
inspected the wires leading
to the'launch controller.
Within moments, the
rocket was sent spiraling
overhead in a blast of smoke,
its fall back to Earth cush-
ioned by a brightly colored
parachute.
Then elation, cheering
and a desperate plea.
"When do I get to blast
off, Mrs. Phillips?" asked
Brian Cunningham, gestur-
ing impatiently with his
rocket, "Thunderbird 3000."
The third grade students
of teachers Cindy Phillips, Jo
Clements, Joni White,
Charlotte Willis, Donna
Thompson and Sissy Godwin
celebrated the Ignite the
Imagination II Launch Day
on Friday, with a crowd of
interested spectators scan-
ning the skies above the Port

related.
As the students took
turns launching their rock-
ets, Tyler Crum's "Get Her
Done," Travis Lucas' "Rocket
Zilla" and Sawyer Raffield's
"Who's Your Daddy" each
had their moment in the sun,
aided in their flight by eight
Port St. Joe High School
seniors from Miss Bush's
physics class.
The students ran the
length of the football field to
retrieve their launched rock-
ets and then assumed' the
tracker position, where they
measured and recorded the
altitude of the next rocket
fired using an altitrak alti-
tude finder.
The show stopper of
Friday's event was the
launching of the Big Bertha
rocket by the senior physics
students.


As the high-schoolers
installed Bertha on the
launch pad, the third-
graders rushed toward the
ropes, vying for a better view
of the awe-inspiring specta-
cle.
With the signal* given,
the pint-sized rocket scien-
tists began their countdown.
"5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Blastoff!"
And then silence.
S Old Bertha was a mighty
gal, but slow to move, so the
elementary students gave
her some encouragement.
With the physics stu-
dents tinkering with the
rocket's wiring, a third grad-
er threw his voice in the
rocket's direction.
"Come on Big Bertha,
you can do it."
.Then it was 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Blastoff, as Big Bertha made
her journey skyward.


Careful and meticuous preparation is the key to any rock-
et launch, as this Port St. Joe Elementary school student demon-
strates.


DENTAL NEWS FROM THE OFFICE OF


The electric pulp tester is an instrument used to determine the vitality of a tooth. If there
is a question of a tooth's vitality -- when it does not respond, to simple stimuli such as tem-
perature or touch then the pulp tester becomes an important diagnostic tool. It absolutely
doesn't hurt.
A device that looks like a pencil is placed on the tooth and an electric current is started.
No one can feel the beginning current at all, but as it is increased, the gentle beginnings of a
slight tingle can be felt. That's where your dentist stops because he already has the informa-
tion needed. If you feel no tingle it may indicate that the tooth is non-vital. Even then, if the
pulp chamber is extremely small, as a protective response to a blow, or a traumatic bite, you
may feel nothing at all even with a vital pulp. On the other hand if you do feel the tingle,
it could be in a tooth that is dying, but still retains enough vital nerve fibers to give a response.

meet Saturday, May 14, at
10:00 a.m. EST in the meet-
ing room of the Port St. Joe
library.
S Billy E. Nale, Sr. will be
the guest speaker. Mr. Nale
was born in Chattanooga,
Tenn. but grew up a "Good
Ole Boy" in Gadsden, Ala. He
then married a "GRITS" (Girl

they reared a family of four
children. After a career in the
U.S. Army and as an
Electronics Program
Manager at Naval Coastal


Systems Center in Panama

will be:
MIGRATION OF BRITISH
ISLE IMMIGRANTS TO
AMERICA PRIOR TO THE
REVOLUTIONARY WAR,
1607-1775.
This presentation is
intended as a guide to assist
the family researcher in trac-


ing their early British Isle
ancestors. The material will
identify and describe four
main groups of immigrants
from the British Isles to the
American Colonies prior to
the Revolutionary War. We
will map out the particular
areas in which they lived and
departed from England,
Scotland and Ireland. We will
explore their family origins
and naming patterns, reli-
gious beliefs, culture, living
environments and reasons
they left. We will also locate
and trace the areas) to
which they settled in the new'


world.
Please plan to attend
and hear Mr. Nale's presen-
tation. Learn more about
British. Isle Immigrants and
about the Gulf County
Genealogical Society. Visitors

ing room of the Port St. Joe

Migratory Bird Day Open House Tours


St. Vincent National
Wildlife Refuge will conduct
staff-guided refuge tours
May 11, 12 and 13 to cele-
brate Migratory Bird Day.
Many neotropical migratory
birds are declining due to
fragmentation of breeding
habitat in North America and
loss of winter habitat in the
Caribbean, Central America
and South America.
Participants will have the
opportunity to become better
acquainted with their refuge
and its varied wildlife and
wildlife habitats.
One tour will be con-


ducted daily May 11, 12, and
13 (Wednesday through
Friday). The tours are sched-
uled to leave the Refuge's
Indian Pass'boat dock at
8:09 a.m., E.D.T. and will
return at approximately 1:00
.p.m., E.D.T. Transportation

the staff-guided tours;
Those wishing to partici-
pate must make reservations

hours except during hunt
periods and prescribed

Gulf Coast Electric
Cooperative employees
recently completed a Pole
Top and Bucket Truck
Rescue course, required
annually by OSHA 'and
taught by Jim Wright of
Georgia EMC.
The course consisted of
each employee "rescuing" a
150-pound dummy from
both the top of a pole and a
bucket. The employees
learned the proper way to
climb a pole, which tools
were needed to rescue a co-
worker and what type knots
to tie in the straps.

Reward for States That Track Sex Predators by Satellite


Encouraged by Florida
lawmakers' quick passage of
a state bill that aims to
improve tracking of sex
offenders, U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson has unveiled legisla-
tion to provide federal fund-
ing for Florida and other
states that adopt similar pro-
grams.
Nelson's bill would give
up to $30 million in grants to
support states with pro-
grams that get tougher on
those convicted of preying on
children by tracking them
with satellites, if they get out
of prison. A measure that
just passed in Florida
requires 25-year minimum
prison terms for those con-
victed of sex crimes against
children under 12, and life-
time tracking by global posi-
tioning satellites (GPS) once
outside prison.
The Florida law was
prompted by the abduction
and killing of 9-year-old
Jessica Lunsford, whose
body was found March 19
near her Homosassa home.
The slaying of a second girl,
Sarah Lunde, 13, of Ruskin,
whose body was found April
16, hastened passage of the
bill, called the Jessica
Lunsford Act.
In both cases, convicted
sex offenders have been


accused.
'To be effective, however,
tough laws must be properly
funded," Nelson said, speak-
ing about his bill that would
require the US. Attorney
General to oversee $10 mil-
lion in grants this year and
$20 million next year, for
states that use GPS monitor-
ing for sex offenders.
In the U.S., there are an
estimated 380,000 registered
sex offenders. But thousands
have disappeared, authori-
ties say.
Nelson presented the bill
- The Sexual Predator
Monitoring Act to the
American Civil Liberties
Union Foundation last
Saturday.
The ACLU promotes
itself as a nonpartisan orga-
nization, and the group often
opposes government
restraints on individual lib-
erties, but it supports GPS
monitoring of sexual preda-
tors.
The technology consists
of satellite systems and a
tracking device worn around
the ankle. When the wearer
of the device is in the wrong
place, parole officers and
police can be alerted.

With God's Help

by Billy Johnson
When troubles arise as they sometimes
do.
When friends and kin get the best of
you.
When bills mount up and there seems
no way, that there'll be enough money with
which to pay.
When sickness comes it can get you
down. Where a smile should be, you have a
frown.
Divorce can be a problem too. I've been
there and done that, as well as some of you.
Each of these problems I've had and
many others too.
I finally gave them all to God.'
He's the one that pulled me through.
Remember yesterday is history, tomor-
row is a mystery.
Today is a present, that's why it's called
such.
"Thank you for your help God and loving
us so much."

Wewahitchka

High School


By Geoffrey Helms and
Jerremy Yoder
The 2004- 2005 school
year is, quickly coming to a
close. When one says that,
you begin to think that there
is little more going on around
the campus, but in fact there
is much happening around
the campus of Wewahitchka
High School in these final
days of this school year.
Before we start talking about
the future events at
Wewahitchka High School
let's look at the past events
that the school has been
involved in recently. ,
Band students, grades
7-12, ventured to the Great
Smoky Mountains on
Wednesday, April 27. On the
five day trip they enjoyed
some of the local attractions
such as Dollywood, Dixie
Stampede and the downtown
area of Gatlinburg and
Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. On
the way to Gatlinburg we, (as
the band) stopped at
Klingmahs's Dome and for
some experienced their' first
snowball fight! Yes, there,
really is snow at the end of
April. The Gator Sound
band greatly enjoyed this trip,
and hopes to return in the
following years.
The Odyssey of the Mind
teams both did very well at
the state competition. The
teams took fourth and third
place with their outstanding
schemes. The two teams
consisted of Arielle Bragg,
Sarah House,/and Jerreiny
Yoder. as the "Get the
Message" team which took
fourth place, and Matthew
Miller, Brad Udell, Meleah
Lister, Mary Taunton, Kayla
Chumney, and Kelly Weeks
as the "Stunt Mobiles" team,
which took third. "We had a
real good team this year and


Icl /M\ LEJ


came close to going to
world," says Brad Udell, "I
have confidence that we'll
make it next year." As
Matthew Miller said, "Brad's
right, we got as close as you
can get without going to
world. We are just anxiously
waiting for next year to come
up with bigger and better
ideas."
The second annual
Gator Bass Classic turned
out well even with the nasty
weather. First place winners
Danny Grey and James
Grant received a lump sum
of $700 with a five fish limit
weighing in at 12.49 pounds.
second place winners Mike
Botiford and Hal Blackwell
received $300 for their five
fish .of 11.47 pounds. Last
but not least Johnnie
Kirkland and Bobby Smith
received $250 for 10.26
pounds of fish taking third
place.
The days of the 2004-
2005 school year are coming
to a close and this triggers
many upcoming events, so
don't forget to mark the
important dates. May 11 and
12 are the days for seniors to
take final exams as May 13 is
the last day for them. Also
on May 13, seniors will be
dining at the Sunset Grill for
breakfast. Relay for Life
starts on May 13 and ends
on the 14th. On May 15 bac-
calaureate begins at 7 p.m.
in the gym. Class night for
seniors will be held on May
17. The Lady Gators go to
the State playoffs on May 19-
20. Seniors graduate on May
21, a date that will live in
infamy. Exams for grades 9
through 11 will be held on
May 24-25. Good luck!
Students' last day will be
May 251 'Have a safe, but fun
summer.

As part of the ceremony,
Sarah was inducted into Pi
Alpha Alpha Public
Administration National
Honor Society. PAA member-
ship is a significant honor
afforded to MPA candidates
that have completed more
than half of the degree
requirements with at least a
3.75 grade point average (4.0
scale). Only about 10 percent
of MPA students at accredit-
ed institutions nationwide
are even' considered for PAA
membership.
A dramatic highlight of
the evening occurred when
Sarah was presented the
Malcolm Parsons Master of
Public Administration Best
Paper Award for her treatise,
"Integration of Policies,
Performance Measurement
and Planning in the Budget
Process." The research and
analysis involved the study
of the budget processes of six
governmental agencies locat-
ed in five different states.
The paper identified best
practices, performance mea-
surement activities, decision
making processes, etc. that
allowed Sarah, as the author,
to present options and rec-
ommendations to govern-
mental ,budget formulators
nationwide.
Sarah earned her B.S. in
Economics and Certified
Public Manager Designator
from FSU in Tallahassee.
She presently resides in
Tallahassee and enjoys the
professional position, Senior
Management Analyst II, with
the State of Florida
Department of Financial
Services.

All seniors may be glad
at home, but funny enough
our senior bus is still in
Apalach. The memories we
made at Grad Nite will never
be forgotten. Nevertheless,
this year is winding down
and friends are getting ready
to say goodbye. Freshman,
sophomores and juniors are
getting ready for a relaxing
summer while seniors are
getting ready to go to college.
Congratulations to all of
the new National Honor
Society inductees: James
Alford, Mica Ashcraft,
Jennifer Bland, Amy
Brockman, Jimmy Curry,
Angelica Driesbach; Warren
Floyd, Kurtis Krum, Leah
Minat, Samantha Plessinger
and Kate Shoaf. We would
like to wish all of the new
members good luck in the
great future that lies ahead.
Although the year is
almost over, there is still
work to be done. Final exams
for the seniors are May. 12-
13. On May 12, exams'in
4th, 5th and 6th period will
be taken, and on May 13,
1st, 2nd and 3rd period
exams will be taken. Good

Are seniors hungry? On
May 20, seniors will meet at
Sunset Coastal Grill at 10
a.m. for some free food!
Having worked there in the
past, we can vouch that the

Port St. Joe Elementary
School is making plans for
the 2005-2006 kindergarten
classes. If you have a child
entering kindergarten in
August 2005 and have not
yet registered them, it is very
important that you take this
opportunity to do so.
Kindergarten registration
will be held one more time on
Wednesday, May 18, from 1-
3 p.m. You will need to bring


the following: birth certifi-
cate, Social Security card,
blue immunization card,
your child and proof of phys-
ical examination within the
last year. Upon arrival, you
should sign In at the front
office of Port St. Joe
Elementary. We appreciate
your help and cooperation in
getting all eligible students
registered.


nation practice will take
place at 1 p.m. on May 20 as
well.
As the years pass by
each graduating class has to
go through the traditions of
Baccalaureate. Our
Baccalaureate begins May 22
at 6 p.m. Seniors don't forget
to wear your cap and gowns
and church-like clothing
underneath. Graduation is
on Monday, May 23 at 7 p.m.
Parents who want good seats
at graduation need to be
early. Seats can not be
reserved. The only way seats
can be reserved is if bodies
are in the chair! Following
graduation is Project
Graduation, which lasts from
10 p.m. until 6 a.m. Whew,
that's a lot to remember; bet-
ter mark your calendars.
As if this year hasn't
brought enough fun and
trips, the band has done it
again. On Friday, May 6;
they performed at Music
USA Festivals in Orlando.
The band, representing Port
St. Joe, consists of both mid-
dle school and high school
students. The fundraisers we
have been selling throughout
the year have helped fund
our trip. So remember next
year when the band is selling
stuff again that it is used for
a good cause. We want only
to have the community
proud of our accomplish-
ments.
Well, that's all folks. We
are honored to be graduating
with the class of 2005. It has
been a blast and the memo-
ries that were made will not
be forgotten. We never
thought that we would make
it this far. We hope that we
all keep in touch with one
another. A little note to all of
the seniors is to keep God
first and to never give up on
the dreams for the future. Be
proud of who you are and
make your life a great jour-
ney. We love you guys! See
you later.

filed by any persons other than
those entitled to written notice
under section 120.60(3) of the
Florida Statutes must be filed
within 14 days of publication of
this notice or receipt of the writ-
ten notice, whichever occurs
first. The petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the appli-
cant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a
petition, within the appropriate
time period shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to
request an administrative
determination (hearing) under
sections 120.569 and 120.57 of
the Florida Statutes. or to inter-
vene in this proceeding and
participate as a party to it. Any
subsequent intervention (in a
proceeding initiated by another
party) will be only at the discre-
tion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-
106.205 of the Florida
Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes
the material facts on which the
Department's action is based
must contain the following
information:
(a) The name. address.
and telephone number'of each
petitioner, the applicant's name
and address, the Department
File Number and the county in
which the project is proposed;
(b) A statement of how
and when each petitioner
received notice of the
Department's action or pro-
posed action;
(c) A statement of how
each petitioner's substantial
interests are affected by the
Department's action or pro-
posed action;
(d) A statement of all
material facts disputed by peti-
tioner or a statement that there
are no disputed facts;
(e) A statement of facts,
which the petitioner contends
warrant reversal or modifica-
tion of the Department's action
or proposed action:
(f) A statement of which
rules or statutes the petitioner
contends require reversal or
modification of the
Department's action or pro-
posed action; and
(g) A statement of the
relief sought by the petitioner,
stating precisely the action the
petitioner wants the
Department to take with
respect to the Department's
action or proposed action.
A petition that does not
dispute the material facts on
which the Department's action
is based shall state that no
such facts are in dispute and
otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth
above, as required by Rule 28-
106.301 of the Florida
Administrative Code.
Because the .administra-
tive hearing process is designed
to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition
means that the Department's
final action may be different
from the position taken by It in
this notice. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affect-
ed by any such final decision of
the Department have the right
to petition to become a party to
