Community Mourns the Loss of a Beloved Resident


By Paul L. Mikolajczyk
and Despina Williams
Florida Freedom Newspape


College boxing champion, high
school algebra teacher, former
mayor, insurance man.


Frank Hannon, a former Port St. Joe mayor and founder of Hannon Insur-
ance Co. died Friday in North Carolina. He was 87 years old.


Many epithets can be used to
describe Frank Hannon, but for
those who knew him, one word best
sums up his life.
"If you look up the word 'gentle-
man' in the dictionary, you should
see a picture of him there," said
Hannon's grandson, Andy Smith.
Port St. Joe mourned the loss of
its longtime resident on Tuesday, as
the 87-year-old Hannon was laid to
rest in Holly Hill Cemetery following
services at First Baptist Church.
Hannon passed away last Fri-
day, succumbing to injuries he
sustained in a wreck in Asheville,
North Carolina.
Hannon had been living for six
months a year in Cashiers, North
Carolina, with his wife, Dorothy,
since his retirement from Hannon
Insurance Co. in 1975..
Born in Alabama, Hannon came
to Port St. Joe with dual degrees in
social studies and math from the
University of Florida and taught
algebra, world history, U.S. history


and eighth grade math at Port St.
Joe High School.
Lettering in baseball, basketball
and football at Leon High School
and ranked first in his weight class
in boxing at UF, Hannon coached
all the high school's athletic teams.
"From the day he moved to Port
St. Joe he was loved as much as
anyone I knew," remembered his
friend, George Core.
In 1943, Hannon and his wife
opened their insurance office, nam-
ing the business Frank and Dot's
Insurance, which they changed to
Hannon Insurance Co. a few years
later.
Hannon conducted his insur-
ance business on the side in the
early morning hours before school
and later gave up coaching to be-
come a full time insurance man.
He was elected to the Port St.
Joe city commission in 1964 and
served for three years as the city's
mayor. He also was the co-founder
of Citizens Federal Savings Bank in


Port St. Joe.
When Hannon retired, he left
the business in the capable hands of
his son-in-law Roy Smith, the hus-
band of his first daughter, Fran.
Hannon still kept an office in
the back of the insurance agency,
next to his grandson, Andy's.
Through the years, Hannon was
actively involved in community ser-
vice. In March, he was honored as
the Kiwanis Club's longest standing
member.
Hannon is survived by his wife
of 62 years, Dorothy, two daugh-
ters, four grandchildren, a great-
grandson and several nieces and
nephews.
Mayor Frank Pate described
Hannon as "a good man" who loved
his community, family and church.
"His passing is going to be a
loss for the whole community," he
said.


Butler's Restaurant Property Annexed by City


By Blair Shiver
Star Staff Writer
The rumors are, without a
doubt, confirmed.
Butler's Restaurant will be clos-
ing its doors for good on July 5.
Wandell Butler rested in the
corner, much like he could often
be found keeping watch over the
lounge in the restaurant, during
the Port St. Joe City Commission
meeting Tuesday night.
He waited patiently, through
the hashing of the city business
and the swearing in of Mayor Frank
Pate and Commissioners Rachel
Crews and John Reeves.
With little discussion or fan-
fare, commissioners voted unani-
mously to annex the property on
which Butler's Restaurant current-
ly stands.
Mayor Pate congratulated
Butler on his success, adding,
"You'd have to cook a lot of fish to
make that kind of money."
Commissioners Benny Roberts
and Reeves reiterated for the audi-
ence that this was a voluntary
annexation.
"People hear us say annex-
ation and they think we're just
taking away property in Highland
View," Reeves said. "These people
are coming to us and asking to be
annexed."
Local historian George Core,
on hand to perform the ceremonial
swearing-in, offered several words
of thanks and, encouragement prior
to the annexation vote.


Of his wife, Core told the mayor
he had hoped Evelyn would have
been in the meeting so he could
thank her for "giving in" again,
allowing her husband to serve
another term with the City of Port
St. Joe.
"We all know what's coming
and you all have to plan for it,"
Core told the commission.
"It's not an easy job. If we don't
have the right plans, the ship will
sink," he cautioned.
After his presentation to. the
returning mayor and commission-
ers of the traditional gold dollar
coin, which he confessed was "only
gold in color," the commission con-
tinued grappling with their organi-
zational strategy to handle "what's
coming."
Marina Pennington was
approved by commissioners to pro-
vide land use planning services to
the city.
For $115 an hour on a part
time basis, Pennington will be
working with City Manager Lee
Vincent to update the city's current
Comprehensive Plan.
The plan currently in place was
developed in 1990 based on data
collected as long ago as 1980.
Vincent said at first he felt
Pennington's fee was a bit steep,
but with many years of experience
in municipal planning and devel-
opment, she came highly recom-
mended by several agencies.
He added that Pennington
would not only be hired to update


the current plan, she would also In other business: Inc. to put down a spray texture in


be able to assist the City in future
planning efforts.

Mexico Beach


By Blair Shiver
,Star Staff Writer
Mexico Beach residents packed
the Civic Center Monday morning
to witness the swearing-in of their
new mayor and council members.
In their final act of official duty,
Mayor Kathy-Kingsland and council
members David Thompson, Sandie
Yarbrough and Chuck Risinger ap-


proved the consent agenda before
the .new council took over.
Risinger, however, simply
moved from his Group 5 seat to the
mayor's seat.
With his wife Connie' at his
side with a Bible in her hand, Ris-,
inger was sworn in as the Mexico
Beach mayor by Bay County Clerk
of Courts Harold Bazzell.


Witn nis wiie .Connie at nis siae with a Bible in her hana, Risinger was sworn
in as the Mexico Beach mayor by Bay County Clerk of Courts Harold Bazzell.


Welcomes New Council


He was followed by each of the
new council members, Curtis Dale,
Al Cathey, Gary Woodham and Bob
Ginsberg, also sworn in with their
wives at their sides.
The exchange of positions was
officially marked with handshakes
and words of congratulations from
the outgoing council.
"In my opinion, you could not
have brought a better group of peo-
ple together to serve you," Risinger
told the audience.
One of their first acts of busi-
ness was electing a Mayor Pro-tem.
Ginsberg nominated Cathey
and the motion was seconded by
Woodham. Cathey was unanimous-
ly approved to serve as Mayor Pro-
tem effective June 6.
The new council also unani-
mously agree to enter into a profes-
sional services contract with former
Public Works Director John Grant-
land.
The contract is for a term of
90 days with a financial limit of
$5,000.
After official business of the first
meeting was completed, each new
council member expressed their ap-
preciation to the citizens that had
elected them to their position.
"Our city has got a lot ahead
to accomplish and it can't be done


without citizen input," Woodham be busy, and he encouraged them
said.
Risinger told the audience that to have patience with the new coun-

Gulf County Legislative Appropriations


By Blair Shiver
Star Staff Writer
Much to the benefit of both Gulf
County residents and visitors, sev-
eral grants survived the governor's
veto at the recent conclusion of the
legislative session.
More than $4.2 million was
passed down in appropriations for
new facilities as well improvement
projects all across the county.
The largest sum of $2 million
was in the legislative budget for the
extension of county sewer service to
the Beaches.
When contacted Tuesday after-
noon, however, Assistant Planner
David Richardson said his office
had not been officially notified of
the approval.
Richardson was unable to com-
ment on a timeline for construction
to officially begin.
"We won't begin construction
until we have the money," he said.
In the May 24 meeting of the


Gulf County BCC, Chief Admin-
istrator Don Butler discussed a
25 percent match for the Beaches
sewer project. The motion to ap-
prove the match was unanimously
approved by the Board.
Also on the list of appropria-
tions was $300,000 for repairs on
the Gulf County Courthouse.
Richardson said he believed the
monies would be used to repair the
damaged roof and/or the elevator.
Public health services in the
northern end of the county will
be brought into the 21st century
thanks to an additional $600,000
grant from the Florida Department
of Health.
According to Doug Kent, direc-
tor of the Gulf County Health De-
partment, the county received $1.5
million last year to purchase the
property on which the new health
facility in Wewahitchka will be
erected.

Coffee


Table Book with an Edge


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
Florida's Northwest is a
photography book that reads
like a cautionary tale.
The pet project of two
Northwest Florida environ-
mental activists, the book
celebrates the beauty of the
region's white sandy beach-
es, old-growth forests and
pristine waterways while ex-
ploring the challenges posed
by the area's unprecedented
growth.
Photographer Michael
O'Donovan has witnessed
first-hand the detrimental ef-
fects of environmentally irre-
sponsible development in his
native Pensacola.
Currently, only one to
two percent of the Pensacola
Bay is open to oystering as a
result of poor growth plan-
ning, and bad air quality
has threatened the respira-


tory health of Pensacola resi-
dents.
"Pensacola has the
dirtiest air in Florida and
one of the dirtiest power
plants in the country," said
O'Donovan, who is current-
ly a board member of the
Southern Alliance for Clean
Energy, a group that focuses
on preserving air quality in
the Southeast.
O'Donovan said he was
compelled to do the project
out of concern for the area
that his family has called
home for four generations.
In telling the area's sto-
ry, the photographer found a
likeminded partner in North-
west Florida newcomer, Rob-
in Rowan, a travel writer and
fellow environmental activ-
ist.
The book's images are
not digitally enhanced, and
its environmental message is

not diluted. O'Donovan calls
the work "a coffee table book
with an edge."
In words and pictures,
Rowan and O'Donovan tell
the story of a still pristine
area that will require the vigi-
lance of its residents to keep
it that way.
Himself a former builder
of custom homes, O'Donovan
sees growth as inevitable.
Among his photographs
of the area's natural wonders
are the pastel-hued Seaside
community and the St. Joe
Company community, Wa-
terColor.
The book describes St.
Joe Company as "the flag-
ship leading the development
flotilla" and ponders the fu-
ture of the 1.1 million acres
of land held by Florida's larg-
est landowner.
O'Donovan calls St. Joe
Company "the 800 pound
gorilla here in Northwest
Florida," but has hopes that
the gorilla can be tamed by a
responsive citizenry.
"The biggest thing is
staying on top of St. Joe,"
said O'Donovan, who believes
residents should make their
voices heard in the visioning
phase of new developments.
O'Donovan noted that
St. Joe Company has, in the
past, been responsive to com-
munity input.
"For the most part,
they've listened as much as
big companies can and have
made considerations and
compromises," he said.
When O'Donovan is not
acting as a watchdog for re-


sponsible development, he is
basking in the beauty of his
home state.
He first became enam-
ored with the Northwest Flor-
ida landscape over 30 years
ago as an amateur photogra-
pher, and with time, his love
for the area deepened.
While living on Santa
Rosa Island, O'Donovan de-
cided to quit his job as a
builder and pursue photog-
raphy full time. Nine years
ago, he completed a pho-
tography book featuring im-
ages of Santa Rosa, which he
named The Island.
The photographs in
O'Donovan's new book
capture his recent travels
through Northwest Florida,
with a few sentimental shots
of his wife, Kate, strolling
outside an Apalachicola shop
and stepson, Matt, whose sil-
houetted image leaps from
a dune at the close of the
book.
O'Donovan's photo-
graphs celebrate the area's
contrasts. The book gives
equal space to fishermen ply-
ing their solitary trade as it
does to a sea filled with rec-
reational boats..,
Florida's Northwest does
not include photographs of
run-down buildings and com-
mon eye sores. O'Donovan


is the first to admit that his
work is not documentary re-
alism.
"Every photograph
is a subjective portrayal
- it's through my eyes," said
O'Donovan, who hopes that
he has provided a glimpse at


an area whose natural beau-
ty is worth preserving.
"As you would a por-
trait of someone, you try to
look for the best sides," said
O'Donovan. "I was taking a
portrait of our area."

Florida Senators Avert Drilling Showdown


A key Senate panel last

Still, the measure in
question is expected to come
before the full Senate for a
vote in the second or third
week of June when sena-

a much broader energy bill.
The measure, an amend-

Landrieu, would get rid of a
moratorium on new drilling
in the eastern Gulf of Mexico
and open up vast areas for
exploration much closer to
Florida.

to Florida. "Any weakening
of the protections currently
in place off Florida's coasts
is unacceptable," Martinez
said.
Last month, Nelson met
with Interior Secretary Gale
Norton, who oversees leases
for new drilling sites. At that
meeting, Nelson became con-
vinced the Bush administra-
tion intends to push for new
drilling, at least for natural


gas, much closer to Florida.
In response, Nelson has
written Norton, noting that
such plans threaten the
state's tourism-based econo-
my as well as military train-
ing in the eastern Gulf of
Mexico; and, that new drilling
runs contrary to the feelings
of most Floridians, including
Gov. Jeb Bush.
Meantime, Nelson is con-
tinuing to block the naming
of a new deputy for Norton
because the nominee also re-
fuses to support an existing
ban on drilling in 3.9 million
acres of the eastern Gulf.

Grouper Limits May be Imposed


C-u builFishery


by Dusty Ricketts
Florida Freedom Writer
Local fishermen are facing a crisis
with the probable closure of the
depleted grouper fishery, a step
that would prevent them from catch-
ing the popular fish at the end of the
year.
In an effort to rebuild the red grou-
per population, the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration is
planning .a threemonth closure of the
entire grouper fishery.
NOAA, which oversees the nation's
marine resources, first determined
the red grouper was being overfished
in 1999, Dr. Roy Crabtree, region-
al administrator for the organization,
said this week in an interview with
The Log.
A second assessment was done on
the red grouper population in 2002.
And while Crabtree said the red grou-
per population had improved, it was
not at the levels NOAA wanted.
"We've been working on the red
grouper for six or seven years now,"
Crabtree said.
Anglers now can keep five grouper
on each fishing trip, and two of them-
can be red grouper, Crabtree said.
Later this year, NOAA plans to
lower the bag limit to three grouper
per person with one of those being red
grouper, Crabtree said. NOAA is also
planning to close the grouper fishery
to all recreational anglers from Octo-
ber through December, Crabtree said.
Those are temporary changes that
would last 180 days, Crabtree said.
Several public hearings in Alabama
and Florida are scheduled this month
for NOAA to collect feedback from
Fishermen on the. potential closure.
NOAA officials will approve or deny the
temporary regulations soon after the
final public hearing June 29, Crabtree
said.
But the Gulf of Mexico Fishery
4 Management Council is meeting in
July and will discuss making perma-
nent changes to the recreational grou-
per quotas.
Although it might be helpful for'
the grouper fishery, a grouper closure
could be. devastating to anglers and
to the charter fishing industry, said
Bob Zales, a Panama City charter boat
captain and president of the National
Association of Charterboat Operators.
A public meeting has been sched-
uled for 6 p.m. June 16 at the Destin
Community Center. The .meeting will
be a chance for local anglers to weigh
in on the probable grouper closure.
Zales, who is in the running for a seat
on the Gulf Coast council, said it is
important for everyone who attends
the meeting to fill out the speaker
cards to show NOAA the number of
people, who attend.
"This is right now the most critical
issue facing recreational fishing," Zales


said. "A closure is bad for business.
This creates a whole host of problems.
If anybody has anything to. say, either
for or against' the closure, now is the
time to speak."
The potential closure is worrying
local anglers.
"Closing the grouper fishery is
going to be an enormous loss,"said
Scott Robson, captain of the charter
boat Phoenix. "That's..been proven to
all of us by the closing of the snapper
season (from Nov. 1 to mid-April each
year). We don't have a March and it's
not because we don't have good fish to
catch."
Robson said the recreational fish-
ermen are being unfairly targeted in
the grouper closure.
Regulations on the number of each
species that can be caught is divided
between the recreational and com-
mercial fishermen. Robson said when
the regulations were written in the
early 1990s, fewer recreational anglers
fished for grouper. Commercial fisher-
men were allowed to catch 81 percent
of the grouper caught each year com-'
pared to the recreational anglers' 19
percent.
Robson said those numbers need
to be evened out now because there
are more recreational fishermen.
NOAA isn't targeting just the char-
ter boat and recreational anglers in
trying to repair the red grouper fish-
ery, Crabtree said.
NOAA reduced the number of red
grouper commercial anglers could
catch last year, Crabtree said. After
their quota was met, the grouper fish-
ery was closed last year to commercial
anglers for about two months.
NOAA put a 10,000-pound trip
limit on grouper for the commercial
fishermen.
Next week, the limit will be lowered
to 7,500 pounds a trip because Crab-
tree said the commercial fishermen are
ahead of their pace from last year.
Crabtree anticipated the NOAA low-
ering the trip limit again this summer
on the commercial fishermen and clos-
ing the grouper stockto commercial
fishing again at the end of the year.

My bride didn't run
away.
But I do think it crossed
her mind a time or two
before the wedding. I know
she stared 'at Leon in total
disbelief through lunch
and most of an. afternoon
as he soliloquized on mar-
riage and its oft irreversible
harmful effects on newly-
weds. 'Course, the fight that
broke out between me and
David Mark over a chicken
wing at supper had both
of'her eyebrows backed up
into her hairline!
I think she had mostly
sisters. Who didn't bite or
sucker punch.
Probably the worst pre-
marriage mistake was intro-
ducing .her to Uncle F. D.
He immediately launched
full force into the time me
and him strung 'the elec-
tric wire around the Civil
War statue up on the town
square and hooked it to
the Farmall tractor battery.
He'd hit that ignition switch
and Nathan Bedford Forrest
would light uplike he was
chasing Grant's men back
to the Rappahannock! Folks
came for miles around....
they thought Nathan had
been "taken over" by aliens.
Then, before she could
digest exactly why we would
care to electrocute a statue,
he felt led to jump into
the JerroldSwitchmillpond
.debacle. ,He- naturally laid
all the blame on me. Like it
was my idea! All I did was
help him haul the detour
sign up on the road. By
the time the second car
plunged off into the pond
I realized we .might have
gone too far.... F. D. always
left out who ran back to
the road and waved off the
other cars.
He started in on the
midnight horse race
through the Fairview Com-
munity Center right in the'
middle of the all night sing
and I had the good sense to
hustle Cathy out of there!
She was certainly aware of
all the hullabaloo over that
night... I couldn't see how
a list of riders would serve
any purpose this long after
the fact!
The best pre-marriage


by Kesley Colb .. ert





by Kesley Colbert


On Second

decision I iiiade was ni..t
letting Cathy even I-no'.'. I
had an Aunt Ruby Nell until
after the wedding! Ruby \\acs
a lot like F. D., only w\or-r:e
And no one needed Rub',
rehashing the Ilyi-g leap_
off the Duck River Bridge,
snakes on the loose or late
night strip poker games.
I warned them all to be
on their best behavior those
last couple of weeks. I felt
like if a bride was going
to bolt---that would be the
time.
I introduced Cathy to
Coach Givens who grinned
and said of her perspec-
tive groom, "He's never hurt
anyone in my family that I
know of." Brother Hatcher
read to her from the book
of Job. Granny gave her
a cooking lesson on laying
out and skillet frying 'pos-
sums, gophers and other
"handy" creatures.
At least a dozen con-
cerned friends and family
members asked her if she
liked baseball.
Buddy Wiggleton had
to tell- her about the fight
out at the Skyway Grill.
He made it sound a little
worse than it was. .I tried
to straighten that out later
by explaining to Cathy that
I was only bleeding from
one cut on my head and my
shirt was not. torn all the
way offi
Daddy brought up
money. I assured Cathy
that I would find a job as
soon as the honeymoon was
over. And I didn't expect her
to work.....but it would be a
,shame for, herz, to: w.sts., that
fine education. ...
Leon. came to the
rehearsal dinner with a pic-
ture history book of every
girl I had ever dated. That
really went over well. He
was carrying on how Milli-
cent Blackburn was the best
motorcycle rider who ever
came out to the house....
and how Jane Hill could
open Coca-Cola bottles with
her teeth....and Emily Scar-
brough could out run, out
hit and out shoot any boy
in school....and Billie Jean
Barham was way ahead of
the rest---
Mother, to my everlast-
ing delight, took the book
out of his hands. I
Cathy was polite and
enjoying the roast beef and
green beans and laughing
as family member after fam-
ily member got up to basi-


I Thought

cAil, -sa\ the same thing,
"Hoi\\ could an attractive.
intelligent, college graduate
arid refined lady like herself
even consider marrying a
r,:, iccouUnt scoundrel like
'thdt gio setting next to
you'."
"Yeah, how did he -trick
you into it."
"Don't believe every-
thing he tells you."
And folks, it was MY
family members delivering
these diatribes!
Cathy's relatives, except
for Daddy Brown, were
mostly withholding judg-
ment until they figured out
if I could- possibly be as
bad as I first appeared! Of
course, I readily observed
that "withholding" judgment
and "withholding" appetite
were definitely two sepa-
rate entities altogether for
these folks. Their anxieties,
questions, fears or doubts
didn't keep them from eat-
ing everything in sight!
I knew Cathy would
show up the next day.....
but a little flood of relief
drifted over me as I saw her
pause at the back of the
church and then start down
the aisle. I didn't even mind
the crazy forty foot banner
Leon and the -boys unfurled
across the entire back wall
as the beautiful bride made
her way to the front.
Much to my chagrin
Cathy spotted, it out of
the corner of her eyes as
we turned to join hands.
I couldn't tell if she was
amused or flabbergasted!
She also showed no reac-
Stiou when, I, leaned in and
whispered that we couldn't
stay for the entire reception
because I had a baseball
game that afternoon. Before
I could explain that it was
for first place in the league
the 'preacher started talk-
ing:....
Great memories!
And brought back today
because of some cold-footed
runaway bride up in Geor-
gia who got "kidnapped" to
keep from saying "I do."
I turned to Cathy,
"Honey, don't you think all
,that runaway bride stuff
is so silly? What woman
in her right mind would
take off the day before their
own wedding? Isn't that so
crazy?"
"Cathy.......Cathy......
CATHY?......"

Base Realignment and


Closers (BRAC) Continue
By Faith Ford
Florida Freedom Writer
Local defense advocates are .building their case
to dispute recommended cuts to Tyndall Air Force
Base and Naval Support Activity-Panama City.
Representatives' from around the- nation have the
opportunity to argue Department of Defense recom-
mendations for restructuring the nation's military
bases during a series of 16 regional hearings begin-
ning today. The first meetings are in Salt Lake City,
Utah and St. Louis, Mo. Advocates for Florida's 21
installations will speak July 12 in New Orleans,
La.
"It's not over till the fat lady sings," said Larry
Dantzler, chairman of Bay Defense Alliance, an orga-
nization formed in the 1993 to protect local bases
during the Base Realignment and Closure or BRAC
process. Dantzler said he and other Bay- Defense
Alliance members are gathering and assessing facts

and are yet to determine whether they have a solid
argument against cuts to Bay County's two bases.
"We need to make sure we have a case to .carry
forward, and we believe we will in at least one or two
of the instances," he said.
Several of the nine BRAC commissioners are
expected to attend each of the regional. hearings.
Dantzler said stakeholders are looking for errors
in the information gathered by the Department of
Defense to present in their defense.-
"You've got to get the data the DoD
used to make their argument and review
it and see if it makes sense,". Dantzler said.
The BRAC Commission has until Sept.
8 to present its own realignment' plan
to the president. Few changes are expected from the
initial list. Recommendations released May 13 were
considered largely favorable for Bay County with no
major cuts to Tyndall Air Force Base or Naval Sup-
port Activity-Panama City. Community members
and politicians close to the process have said that
things could have been much worse. Still, the rec-
ommendations include a total of 80 slashed jobs,
and Dantzler said that could be a low estimate.
The Bay Defense Alliance is trying to determine
what criteria were used to count civilian job cuts.
Dantzler said it appears that some defense contrac-
tor jobs that would be affected by the military cuts
were not included, in the tally.
"The count is not correct," Dantzler said. "We
think that there appears to be more people involved
in the jobs than that number on the list that first
day indicated."

Native Shifts His Focus Back Towards Home


By Blair Shiver
Star Staff Writer
Port St. Joe native Troy
Taylor has been in the busi-
ness of franchising all of his
adult life.
Now, he's combined his
love of sports and his busi-
ness know-how into a suc-
cessful restaurant franchise
- Indigo Joe's Sports Pub and
Restaurant.
An establishment nearly
10 years in the making, with
their flagship restaurant in
Encinitas, Ca., Taylor and
his partners have developed
18 restaurants in nine states.
At the end of this year, Taylor
says his company, Neighbor-
hood Sports Pub Concepts,
Inc., will have a total of 22
restaurants across the coun-


try.
As the company contin-
ues on the road of success,
Taylor has turned his sights
back to his home state of
Florida.
Indigo Joe's, with its
warm oak interior, signature
blue accents, and comfort-
able seating, could easily be
mistaken for any number of
national chains.
With a view of at least
10 to 15 televisions from
any seat in the restaurant,
an enclosed game room and
an assortment of college
sports memorabilia plastered
on nearly every inch of wall
space, this family-friendly
sports pub is as they say,
"not your average joe."
Attention has been given


to every detail of Indigo Joe's.
A state-of-the-art entertain-
ment wall with a large screen
television, multiple high defi-
nition televisions and sev-
eral smaller screens not only
separates the bar from the
dining area, it satisfies the
sports bar concept viewing
capabilities from every angle.
After serving in the mili-
tary for four years, Taylor
was a franchisee for two na-
tional companies.
The Internet boom of
1990s took Taylor to Califor-
nia where he owned, a fran-
chise development business
that took him all across the
world.
During his world trav-
els, Taylor often frequented
sports bars. '


Legislative Appropriations


The rising cost of con-
struction and materials,
however, forced a reduction
of the 12,000-square feet of
new space.
This year's grant will al-
low the Health Department
to proceed with their original
plans.
In addition, Kent said
the current dental facility is
actually operating with 20-
year old equipment owned by
North Florida Medical.
Instead of continuing to
spend money repairing old
equipment, Kent said the ad-
ditional monies will allow for
the purchase of new, state-
of-the-art equipment.
"We look forward to ex-
panding our services and
doing a better job of public
health in that community,"
Kent said.
Three $200,000 Florida
Recreation Developmen't As-
sistance Program (FRDAP)
grants were issued to local
and state parks.
Dead Lakes State Park in
Wewahitchka will offer more
ways to enjoy nature thanks
to a $200,000 improvement
grant from the state,
C-u-a.1%.' Commissioner
Billy Tr'.* said the grant,
sought last year, will be put


towards installation of walk-
ing and bike paths, among
other things.
New features of the Dead
Lakes Park primary recre-,
ation area and facilities will
include a playground, bike
trail, picnic facilities, a fish-
ing pier and a nature trail.
A large -portion of the
grant will also be put towards
renovating an existing nature
trail, picnic facilities, boating
facilities and camping area.
Upon receipt of the
grant money in what Traylor
thought would be in the next
60 or so days following the
end of the legislative session,
additions and renovations
will commence.
The Honeyville Commu-
nity Center, still in prelimi-
nary stages of development
and spearheaded by Commis.-
sioner Carmen McLemore,
also received $200,000 for
installation of new recreation
facilities. '
Among the planned
athletic facilities are play-
grounds, soccer fields, bas-
ketball courts, bike trails,
picnic facilities and exercise
trails.
New restrooms, parking
lots, sign '.: an entrance
road and general liplit ',: will


also be added with a portion
of the grant money.
According to John Hen-
dry, chairman of the FRDAP
committee, $200,000 grant-
ed for Lamar Faison Fields II
between Port St. Joe Elemen-
tary and Port St. Joe High
School will be put towards
completing what has already
been started there.
Completion of Phase II
work will include two addi-
tional soccer fields, a picnic
gazebo with tables a walking
trail and bike path, comple-
tion of a basketball court and
the addition of parking and
restroom facilities.
Repairs of the current
soccer field, vandalized by
what Hendry suspected were
ATVs sometime during the
winter, will be one of the first
steps. In addition, lights for
the current field, not origi-
nally in the proposal, will
also be added.
Implementation has been
delayed according to Hendry
because of an expressed con-
cern from the Corps of En-
gineers over the wetlands in
the vicinity of the park.
Facility improvements in
this particular location are
another item on the long list
of priorities for the City of


Typically dingy and dank
places dominated by mostly
male sports fans, Taylor suc-
cessfully pinpointed facets
of the sports bar concept on
which he could improve and
relayed them back to his
partner in California.
He tells a story of being
in Germany and calling one
of his partners, Chuck Dar-
row, owner/operator of Play-
er's Sports Bar and Grill.
"I studied the strengths
and weaknesses of each place
I went," Taylor said.
He spent eight years per-
fecting his model for Indigo
Joe's Sports Pub and Res-,
taurant.
Even the name of the es-
tablishment was strategically
planned.

Port St. Joe, Hendry added.
"It has to be managed by
the city and fit in with their
priorities," he said.
Of the project's imple-
mentation, Hendry said he
was hopeful things would
begin to come together in the
next few months.
Billy Quinn, park man-
ager at Billy Joe Rish Park
was reminded that state rep-
resentatives had not forgot-
ten about the Cape San Blas
facility for handicapped and,
developmentally disabled cit-
izens.
A $500,000 grant for
the park will be used to re-
pair damaged roofs as well as
bring the facilities up to cur-
rent ADA accessibility stan-
dards.
Tracy Clemmons, super-
intendent of Rish Park, said
ADA standards are constant-
ly changing.
This FRDAP grant will
help the facility to meet cur-
rent standards.
"Over 3,000 individuals
use the park from May 1 to
October," Clemmons said.
He expects renovations
and repairs to begin in the
first of July.


By calling it a sports pub
and restaurant instead of
a bar and grill, Taylor feels
the family traveling in search
of a place to eat dinner will
be more attracted to Indigo
Joe's.
"We're a strong family
restaurant that specializes in
sports," he said.
Taylor considers himself
fortunate to have stumbled
upon a niche that he says 90
percent of sports bars fail to
do focus on the family.
His carefully planned
marketing concept combined
with the owner/operator
model, Taylor said he had
"dummy-proofed" his plan.
"Americans will never
stop eating burgers, wings

and steaks," Taylor said,
comparing his current suc-,
cess to his venture in Inter-
net franchise development.
As his plan to grow 15
units per year in the future
proceeds, Taylor said he will
be focusing his franchising
efforts on the Jacksonville,
Pensacola and Panama City
markets.

Gulf Pines Makes Plans to Reopen


By Blair Shiver
Star Staff Writer
With only a few cars in
the parking lot, passersby
might easily assume Gulf
Pines Hospital has forever
closed its doors.
The few inhabitants in-
side, however, among them
current administrator Ken
Dykes, feel the hospital will


soon be reopening.
So confident, in fact, that
they have begun advertising
for vacancies in several posi-
tions.
Dykes said under the di-
rection of the hospital's new
owner, Medical Capital Corp.,
the corrections necessary to
reopen the facility are in the
process of being made.


Among the list of deficien-
cy corrections are physical
plant problems, operational
issues essentially, policy
and procedure necessary to
resurrect the hospital.
Dykes also pointed to
patient privacy issues related
to the American Health In-
surance Portability and Ac-
countability Act (HIPAA) that


must be remedied to have
the hospital's license reacti-
vated.
"Our license is not re-
voked but suspended," Dykes
said.
Though on Tuesday af-
ternoon, the hospital had not
advertised for to fill the va-
cant positions, Dykes said he
had approximately 60 appli-


cations in hand.
Vacancies for which the
hospital is advertising in-
clude: RNs, LPNs, CNAs, Lab,
X-Ray and US Technicians,
RTs and ,PTs, Food Service,
Housekeeping and Main-
tenance Staff, Accounting,
Admitting and Office Staff,
Administrative and Medical
Records Staff including De-


apartment Manager and Su-
pervisor Positions.
Application forms must
be picked up in person at the
hospital located at' 102 20th
St. in Port St. Joe.
Dykes said the hospital's
target date to reopen is the
end of July.


Franklin County Students Not Permitted to Transfer to Gulf County


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
The Gulf County school
system will not be getting
any requests for transfers
from those attending Frank-
lin County schools.
In a recent conversation
with Franklin County super-
intendent JoAnn Gander,
Gulf County superintendent
Tim Wilder received this de-
finitive message, which he


reported to the school board
at Tuesday night's meeting.
Traditionally, Franklin
County students of private,
public, charter, and home
schools who wished to trans-
fer made the request before
the Franklin County School
Board.
If the board voted to ac-
cept the transfer, the student
would receive a letter of ap-
proval.


The letter would then be
presented to the Gulf County
School Board, who would ac-
cept or deny the request.
"Gander said we would
not see those letters," noted
Wilder, who added that only
those students who have al-
ready been grandfathered in
would be allowed to attend
Gulf County schools.
Tuesday night's meeting
was presided over by Chair-


man Oscar Redd, returning
from a long absence due to
health problems.
Redd thanked the board
and the community for their
support during his sickness,
and noted that he expected to
return to his duties as chair-
man full time in a month or
two.
Redd congratulated the
board on a successful school'
year, and said he believed


the board was "headed in the
right direction" in resolving
some lingering personnel va-
cancies.


"I trust that everything
will work out right and well
be ready to start school in
August," he said.

With the 2005 hurri-
cane season starting June
1 and running through the
end of November, employers
are encouraged to take steps
before a hurricane strikes to
protect their business and
employees. Some tips for
businesses include:
Prevent saltwater dam-
age by storing electronic de-
vices in a high dry place.
Backup computers and


take one computer off-site to
ensure files will not be dam-
aged.
Protect the side of the
building that will be hit by
the strong side winds.
Cover all valuables and
store all documents.
Check to see what your
flood insurance covers.
Purchase materials
such as sandbags, plywood,
plastic sheeting, garbage


bags and lumber.
Move furnishings to safe
ground, fill propane tanks to
keep them from
floating .away, and tie
down tanks and grease im-
movable machinery.
Do not handle live elec-
trical equipment in wet areas
and all electrical equipment
should be dried and checked
before returning to service.

Deadlines for Disaster Loans Approaching


The U.S. Small Busi-
ness Administration (SBA)
reminds business owners
throughout Florida that Eco-
nomic Injury Disaster Loans
(EIDLs) are still available to
small businesses that were
economically impacted for
Hurricane Frances, Ivan and
Jeanne.
"Small businesses that
suffered economic injury
losses from one or more of last
year's hurricanes and want to
apply for a low-interest loan
from the SBA are urged to do
so before the deadline," said
SBA Disaster Area Director
Michael C. Allen. "The dead-
lines vary by declaration and
small businesses do not need
to have physical damage to
be eligible for these loans,"

Allen added.
The deadline for Hurri-
cane Frances is June 6. Hur-
ricane Ivan victims have until
June 16 and the Hurricane
Jeanne deadline is June 27.
Victims with economic losses
from more than one storm
are only required to complete
one loan application.
Small businesses may
apply for a loan of up to $1.5
million if they have suffered
substantial economic injury
in the aftermath of last year's
hurricane season. These
working capital loans may be
used to pay fixed debts, pay-
roll, accounts payable and
other bills that could have
been paid had the disaster
not occurred. These loans
are not intended to replace
lost sales or profits. The in-
terest rate on these' loans
is 2.9 percent, with a maxi-
mum term of 30 years. The
SBA determines the amount
of economic injury, the term
of each loan and the payment
amount, based on the finan-
cial circumstances of each
borrower.
Small businesses in-
terested in applying for as-
sistance can visit SBA rep,
resentatives at any of the

Fishing


You wouldn't think that
fishing and Christmas have
a. single thing in common,
but read on and you'll be


hooked.
Donna Spears Realty is
proud to announce the Third
Annual. Bayou Bash Fishing


Christm;


Tournament to be held July
30.
For the first time, anglers
are invited to cast a line for
a great cause and fish for
Christmas for the kids and
elderly. At the same time, lo-
cal fishing enthusiasts can
see a big payoff for their ef-
forts with large cash prizes.
The Bayou Bash Tour-
nament proceeds will ben-
efit the annual Gulf County
Christmas for the Kids and
Elderly program, which is
sponsored annually by the
Gulf County Senior Citizen's
Association. Each year, the
Senior Citizen's staff and vol-
unteers join with members
'of the community in raising


funds for- Christmas toys,
clothing, shoes, bikes and
more for needy -children and
senior citizens. Food baskets
and Christmas dinners are
also provided to families.
Community volunteers,
lead by Jerry Stokoe, provide,
hundreds of hours of help to
bring a few days of happi-
ness to people who otherwise
would have nothing on a day
when the world is rejoicing.
"This is a great opportu-
nity for us to give something
back to the community and
help a very worthy cause,"
said Ms. Spears. "At the same
time it will give fisherman a
chance to have some fun and
compete for some impressive


ss in
cash prizes."
The tournament will be
held in St. Joseph Bay and
the surrounding waters.
Check-in is at the St. Joe
Shrimp Company. Entry fees
are $25 for adults and $10
for children under 13. The
proceeds will be split 50/50
between the charity and prize
winnings.
Tournament registration
will be conducted at the St.
Joe Shrimp Company on July
30 at 7 a.m. EDT. Rules and
entry forms will be available
at the Gulf County Senior
Citizens Center, 120 Library
Drive, the St. Joe Shrimp
Company or at fishing tackle
supply stores and marinas in


July
the area.
"I think it will be a great
day," said Sandy Lieberman,
director of the seniors' orga-
nization. "This tournament
will give us a jump start on
the fund raising efforts that
usually do not get started
until October. The commu-
nity support for this program
really shows what a wonder-
ful place Gulf County is to
live and play. We are grateful
to Donna Spears and her or-
ganization for what they are
doing."

tion, contact Donna Spears

Twins That I

Have Known
By Virginia Bathurst Beck
Diane and Deloris were
the first twins that I knew. If
ypu saw them together, you
would recognize them as sis-
ters but that was all. It was
because they were fraternal
twins. They were born at the
same time but had different
genetic makeups. Fraternal
twins may be the same sex
or may be a boy and a girl.
Identical twins are always
the same sex and have the
same genetic make up.
The girls were quite alike,
however, and were very close.
They were my classmates
through Junior High and
High School. The first thing
you noticed was that one was
smarter than the other was.
They were both smart but
if Diane got an 'A' in a test,
Deloris got a 'B'. Deloris com-
pensated by being the pret-
tier of the two. Diane had a
bubbly personality and was
more outgoing while Deloris
seemed on the serious side.
After graduation they
chose different careers. Di-
ane became a stewardess
with an airline and moved to
Chicago. That went well with
her outgoing personality. De-
loris became a bookkeeper
and stayed in our hometown
Sioux City, Iowa. After that,
the only times I saw them
together were at school re-
unions. I know however, they
did get together as often as
possible.
They seemed quite com-
fortable 'living apart, al-
though when Diane and her
husband retired they moved
back home about a mile from
Deloris and her husband.
They were hice gals and good
friends of mine.
Dagmar and Daphne


were the other set of twins I
knew personally in my life-
time. They were identical
twins, and I do mean identi-
cal. Only their family could
tell them apart and they re-
ally 'worked it."
If Daphne didn't want to
go out with a boy, she con-
vinced Dagmar to go in her
place. The boy never realized
the difference. In college, a
professor accused them of
cheating on a test. They took
it at different times and their
answers were so similar that
the professor felt one person
must have takers it for both
of them. It wasn't true that
time, but often they did cheat.
Daphne took Dagmar's math
tests and Dagmar took Daph-
ne's swimming test. Daphne
never did learn to swim.
The joke of the family
was that it took 10 months
in heaven for Dagmar to per-
suade God to bring up her
twin sister, Daphne. We're
surprised it took that long
because Dagmar was pretty
forceful.
Dagmar always led the
way beginning with their
births. About an hour after
Dagmar was born, the doc-
tor was leaving when their
mother went into labor again.
Along came Daphne. From
then on, if you saw Dagmar,
Daphne was inevitably right
behind her. Or if you thought
you saw Dagmar, you were
really seeing Daphne.
The first time they were
separated, Dagmar typically
led the way. She married and
moved to Seattle. Daphne
married soon after but stayed
near their hometown. It was
hard back then. You didn't
just jump in a plane and fly
to Seattle. You didn't even
phone Seattle very often, so
their separation didn't last
very long. Dagmar and her
husband moved back to Wa-
terloo and the girls bought


houses next door to each
other. Daphne's sori, Steven
said it was like growing up
with two moms---both with
spanking authority.
In 1964, Daphne and
her husband opened Farmer
Brown's Steak House in Wa-
terloo. When Dagmar's hus-
band died 11 years later, she
joined the staff at Farmer
Brown's. She and Daphne
worked together as host-
esses six nights a week. They
were more identical than
ever. Some nights they even
dressed alike. They reveled in
the attention they got.
This is when we met
them. We went to the steak
at least twice a month when
we were 'up North.' There
was always a waiting line to
get in, so we had plenty of
time to get acquainted with
them. My husband, Danny
said that they had the best-
barbecued ribs he had ever
eaten. Everything was good,
but I think that was only 50
percent of why we went. The
other half of the reason was
to visit with the twins.
They are gone now. They
died quite close together and
Daphne's son Steve runs the
Steak House. We still go to
Farmer Brown's but it isn't
the same. There aren't two
smiling pixies there to greet
us at the door and make us
feel welcome. Dan said'that
the ribs don't even taste as
good.
The twins weren't famous
but they left quite a legacy in
their home area.
I'm going on and extend-
ed vacation. If anyone needs
to contact me, it would be at

Sharks Soccer Teams Receive Top-notch Training


By Blair Shiver
Star Staff Writer
Carson Howse admitted
she was tired, but she sim-
ply dropped her head, took
a deep breath and headed to
the back of the line.


While her classmates en-
joyed the lazy days of sum-
mer vacation, Howse awoke
each morning to join her
fellow Lady Sharks soccer
teammates for some w6rld
class instruction from Andy
Warner and Danny Blain of
Warner Soccer in Tallahas-
see.
Between the insufferable
humidity and sporadic rain
showers, both the boys and
girls soccer teams practiced
drills and learned fundamen-
tals to enhance their team
play.
Drs. Tom and Betty
Curry, the impetus behind
the two-year-old soccer pro-
grams in Port St. Joe, invited


Warner to conduct the four-
day camp.
For more than 20 years,
Warner has worked with
youth soccer programs not
only to improve their play


but also to educate about the
sport.
Warner found his start in
soccer with the Morecambe
Futbol Club in England over
30 years ago. After coming to
the States with the Blackpool
Futbol Club in 1977, Warner
studied sports administra-
tion at Western Illinois Uni-
versity. ,
I In 1980, Warner found
his way to Tampa and be-
came the national coordi-
nator for Camp Kick in the
Grass and eventually made
his way to Tallahassee where
he developed a full time soc-
.cer education program for
children ages 3-18.
The goal of his coach-


ing style, Warner said, is to
promote and motivate young
soccer players.
"They can't be afraid to
fail that's why we're out
here practicing," he said.
His approach could not
be more appropriate for the
young programs..
Blain, currently the head
coach of the Walton High
School girls' soccer team,
said he took a year off from
teaching to work under War-
ner.
Of the boys' team, com-
ing off a District win last
year, Warner said they have
clearly made the extra com-
mitment to their team just by
being out on the field each
morning.
"For the first 10 minutes,
they complain like crazy," he
laughed.
As the boys' team took


a brief water break, Warner
said he not only worked with
the young men on the funda-
mentals of their soccer game,
he strived to transform their
approach on the playing
field.
"The mentality that op-
ponents are 'bad people' is
ludicrous," Warner said.
Parents Nancy Brock-
man and Natalie Shoaf said
the improvements of the
eclectic girls' team have been
noticeable over the course of
the week.
With six rising freshman
currently working with the
Lady Sharks team, Blain,


charged with coaching the
girls for the week, said it has
been refreshing to work with


the girls and watch them' and enthusiastic," Blain said.

FSU Graduate Student Studies St. Joe Bay's Pin Shell Population


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
Pin shells that once
sprang from the bay's sea
grass beds found themselves
relocated on Friday to a pair
of picnic tables at the Buffer
Preserve, where they rested
face-down, criss-crossed
with cable ties and tagged
with pieces of bright orange
plastic.
Florida State Univer-
sity graduate student Pablo
Munguia, with his under-
graduate assistant Christine
Stokes, busily nipped away
at the shells with a pair of
pliers, and placed a thumb-
sized sample inside a num-
bered plastic baggy.
"Hopefully it will work,"
said Munguia of the experi-
ment that has occupied his
time for the last several
weeks. "No one's actually
done it before."
Munguia has returned to
the Port St. Joe Bay for the
fifth summer in a row for an
in-depth study of pin shells,
the subject of his doctoral


A slide from Munguia's dissertation shows live pin shells thriv-
ing in Port St. Joe Bay sea grass beds and the dimensions of a shell
plucked from the water.


prised of a combination of
proteins.
The experiments allow
Munguia to determine how
much the shell has degrad-
ed, and to estimate the time
the shell has been in the wa-
ter.
The age study is the
most recent in a series of


Florida State University graduate student Pablo Munguia, with
his undergraduate assistant Christine Stokes, cuts a sample from
a pin shell at the Buffer Preserve Center. Munguia has studied pin
shells for the last five years as part of his doctoral research


dissertation.
Bivalves that thrive in
shallow water sea grass beds,
pin shells are the prime hab-
itat for as many as 70 dif-
ferent species that reside on
or inside the shell upon the
death of its scallop-like in--
habitant.
The dead pin shells re-
main in the bay for around
a year, when they lose their
anchoring threads and are
tossed around by waves.
This summer, Munguia
is attempting to determine
the age of dead pin shells
in Port St. Joe Bay using a
tagged sample that he re-
trieves from the water every
20 days.
Munguia places the shell
clippings in a device which
measures the force required
to break the shell, and takes
photographs of the inside
nacer, a pearly layer com-


experiments that Munguia
has conducted on pin shell
populations.
Munguia calls the exper-
iments "chapters" in the sto-
ry he is attempting to create,
one whose bivalve protago-
nist never fails to fascinate
the young researcher.
Three summers ago,
Munguia immersed himself
in the study of the sea that
that calls pin shells home,
dividing the creatures into
two sub groups, motile and
sessile.
Motile species, such as
fish, crabs and shrimp, can
move as adults, and often
lay their eggs inside the pin
shell.
Sesille species, such
as barnacles and spong-
es, which cannot move as
adults, cling to the surface
outside the shell and can
create structural complex-


ity and additional habitat
space.
Munguia noted that the
pin shells' shape and rela-
tive stability in the water
make them unique among
bivalves.
Oyster shells, which are
usually covered in a layer of
algae, and clam shells, which
ride the water's currents, are
unsuitable hosts for the vari-
ety of marine creatures that
inhabit pin shells.
In addition to his pin
shell age experiments, Mun-
guia is also spending the
summer making detailed
surveys of sea grass beds,
carefully observing the sea
life found there while tak-
ing into account what spe-
cies are usually found in pin
shells.
He is trying to determine
whether the species that
occupy pin shells can just
as easily thrive in the sea
grass.
"I'm trying to see if you
will find the same species or
not," said Munguia, adding,
"or am I just chasing a wild
goose here?"
Though he does not yet
know the answer to this
question, Munguia is willing
to wager a guess.
"I think that 50 percent
of the animals that live on
pin shells would not be in St.
Joe Bay if pin shells were not
there."
One of Munguia's most
challenging studies to date
has been his research into
the effects of habitat de-
struction on pin shell popu-
lations.
In a study conducted two
years ago, Munguia reduced
a pin shell population from
16 to 4, while keeping an eye
on the rate of accumulation
of pin shell inhabitants.
When the study was
completed, he found that
habitat destruction had a
particularly detrimental ef-
fect on motile species.


Munguia believes his
experiments with pin shells
may one day have broader
applications in addressing
the effects of habitat destruc-
tion in large ecosystems.
Munguia calls pin shells
"naturally occurring test
tubes" whose small size and
ease of manipulation make
them ideal research models.
"You can address ques-

tions with pin shells that you
can't tackle with larger sys-
tems," said Munguia, who
believes it possible to "scale
up" his research findings to
explain how changes in re-
sources and habitat destruc-
tion affect larger marine
communities and ecosys-
tems such as coral reefs and
rain forests.
For the FSU student, it


is an ambitious theoretical
leap into unfamiliar terrain.
"Science works at a
very slow pace. You develop
theory and try to apply it to
nature, but that application
is very hard," Munguia ex-
plained.
"This is one of the first
experiments that tries to
bridge that gap between the-
ories and natural systems."

The Beginning of the End: A History of Port St. Joe's Cemeteries


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
Pete Comforter arrived
in Port St. Joe on September
30, 1946 with a military dis-
charge in one hand and an
undertaker's license in the
other.
With a thriving paper mill
opening eight years earlier,
Port St. Joe was a funeral di-
rector's land of opportunity.
It was the only town of
any size on the Gulf Coast
that lacked a community fu-
neral home.
So on that mild Septem-
ber day, Comforter proceeded
down Reid Avenue, stopping
between 2nd and 3rd streets
at the city police depart-
ment, his new venture close
in mind.
He had come to pay a
visit to Captain Buck Griffin,
the chief of police, to inquire
where the cemeteries were in
Port St. Joe.
The question posed, Grif-


The entranceway into the
gated portion of the historic St.
Joseph's Cemetery. Established
in 1835, the cemetery also con-
tains the largely unmarked
graves of some of Port St. Joe's
early residents.


fin unceremoniously laughed
in Comforter's face, and the
young funeral director felt
his blood run hot.
"I don't see anything fun-
ny about that," he said.
Realizing that his new
acquaintance was not in a
kidding mood, Griffin clued
Comforter in on one of Port
St. Joe's peculiarities.
"You really don't know?"
asked Griffin. "There are no
cemeteries in Port St. Joe."
When Comforter's son,
Rocky, tells the story of his
father's first day in Port St.
Joe, it ends with the image
of a young man standing at a
crossroads.
Though Pete Comforter
briefly entertained the notion
of fleeing from St. Joe, be-
longings in hand, his resolve
to be a pioneering funeral
home director proved stron-
ger.
The day after his encoun-
ter with the sheriff, on Oct. 1,
1946, he founded Comforter
Funeral Home.
Port St. Joe Shares Lost
City's Cemetery
As it turned out, Griffin
was only half right when he
said Port St. Joe had no cem-
eteries.
The old city of Saint Jo-
seph once boasted three
cemeteries, one of which,
the Saint Joseph Cemetery
on Garrison Avenue, had
become a burial ground for
some of the earlier residents
of the present city of Port St.
Joe.
The citizens of the new
town rested beside the vic-


tim's of the lost city's yellow
fever epidemic, which deci-
mated Saint Joseph's popu-
lation between July and Au-
gust of 1841.
Many of the older fami-
lies chose to bury their loved
ones in cemeteries in nearby
Wewahitchka or Apalachic-
ola, while others arranged
burials in South Alabama
and Georgia.
Rocky Comforter, who
assumed control of Com-
forter Funeral Home after his
father's death in April 1977,
noted that his family's fu-
neral home conducted many
out-of-state burials.
Comforter believes Port
St. Joe's failure to immedi-
ately establish a city ceme-
tery stemmed from the influx
of workers to the new paper
mill who had not yet accept-
ed the city as home.
"The only thing I can fig-
ure is they didn't feel the ties
to Port St. Joe because they'd
only been here a few years,"
he said.
When residents began to
feel at home in Port St. Joe,
they longed to have their

OeiAlC.', tr i- l ., ientl, i .i h ,ll I


WISDOM TEETH
The third permanent molar has been called the "wisdom tooth" because it usually comes into
the mouth during the period when our society has decreed that we have matured (usually 15-21)
Of course does not confer wisdom or maturity in any sense of the word. Because it is in the last
position in the back of the mouth, and is the last to come in, there often is not enough room for
its proper placement.
If the wisdom tooth lies in a position where it is blocked by either another tooth or dense bone,
it is called "impacted." Even impacted teeth are sometimes only covered with gum, and are easily
removed. Occasionally they are covered by bone which must be removed, or roots which must
be sectioned before the tooth can be extracted. If an upper wisdom tooth is in good position it is
perhaps the easiest extraction in the whole mouth. The opposing tooth frequently must be removed
also since if it has nothing to "bite" on and could eventually "dig" into the gum of the other jaw

deceased families, then dis-
persed in cemeteries out of
the city, county and state,
close to them.
All they needed was a
hometown boy to set the
course for a new cemetery.
Paper Company Donates
Cemetery Land
As Jake Belin climbed
the ranks of St. Joe Paper
Company, he convinced his
employers to donate a large
parcel of land for Port St.
Joe's first cemetery.
According to Mary Belin,
his sister-in-law, Belin was
motivated by his desire for
his father, William Jacob Be-
lin, who had been interred in
an Apalachicola cemetery, to
make his final resting place
in Port St. Joe.
Established in 1954, the
new cemetery was christened
Holly Hill. George Tapper
paved the cemetery's roads
in exchange for his family's
burial plot.
There is some dispute
over the first person to be
buried in Holly Hill Cem-
etery.
Many residents believe.,
that Albert Ward, a beloved
Port St. Joe physician who'
died tragically of a heart at-
tack at age 42, holds the
distinction, but according
to Comforter Funeral .Home
burial records, Daisy Lee
Rutch, a 33-year-old Oak
Grove housewife was buried
first on July 29, 1954.
With the new cemetery
established, many Port St.
Joe families took Belin's lead
and relocated their burial
plots to Holly Hill.
All Roads Lead to Heaven
Established in the years
following the creation of
Holly Hill Cemetery, Forest
Hill was the city's first black
cemetery, the land on which
it sits another donation from
the St. Joe Paper Company.
At its founding, the cem-
etery's street signs kept with
the forest theme, bearing the
names Tupelo Lane, Maple
Street and Oak Avenue.
IT The street-signs' tarried
the frames or trees'until 1985,
when then city commissioner
Nathan Peters, Jr., acting
on behalf of members of the
black community, sought the
city's approval to reassign


the streets biblical names.
The city agreed to the
change, and Tupelo Lane
became Messiah Lane, Ma-
ple Street, Mary Magdalene
Street and Oak Avenue, St.
Peter Street, with the other
nine streets likewise under-
going a spiritual transforma-
tion. /
"We didn't like those
names, so we came up with
those 'biblical names and
they sound a lot better," said
Peters. "The street names
are real pleasant to the ear
now."
A year later, while serv-
ing as a county commission-
er, Peters succeeded in con-
vincing the county to rename
the road leading to Forest
Hill Cemetery "Twine Road,"
after Emile Twine, the first
principal of Washington High
School.
A Graveyard Historian
When Beverly Mount-
Douds first conceived the idea
of a Gulf County Genealogi-
cal Society in 1997, she un-
dertook the mammoth task
of recording all the graves in
Gulf County's 11 cemeteries.
"Douds meticulously
combed the cemeteries, using
maps provided by City Hall,
almost every day for three
years, sometimes beginning
her work at 6 a.m.
During the course of her
graveyard pursuiiUsDo"ils
placed ads in local newspa-
pers asking people who knew
of grave markers in back-
yards or forests to contact
her. veral GulfCounty re
Several Gulf County resi-


dents responded to Douds'
advertisements, and she
soon found herself traipsing
through the woods and other
out-of-the way locations.
Douds recorded her find-
ings in two volumes that can
be viewed in Gulf County's
public libraries.
In 2002, she won the
Florida State Genealogical
Society's Genealogy Achieve-
ment Award for her efforts in
mapping the cemeteries, and
is proud to have preserved a
piece of the area's history.
"They call me the bone
digger. I dig up bones," said
Douds. "I'm trying to dig up
all this history and record
it."
Though she may some-
day add an alphabetical in-
dex to her cemetery volumes,
Douds said she'd leave the
field work to someone else. -
"I done it in early 2000,
the next generation can do it
20 years from now," Douds
laughed. "I'll save them some-
thing to do."


--A street sign marks the
intersection of Messiah Lane
and St. James St. in Forest Hill
Cemetery. The streets were once
named after trees, but were
changed-to biblical references
in 1985.

Hula Classes Relocate


Starting in June, Lisa
and Malia's hula classes will
be held in a new location.
The Faipeas have de-
cided to conduct their hula
classes, at Mexico Beach.
The main reason was the
generous offer by Peggy and
Shawna Wood, owners of the
Driftwood Inn, to use an area
behind the hotel.
"This will put the stu-
dents in 'a natural environ-
ment while getting them
used to performing in front of
people," Lisa said.
The other reason for the


move is that the majority of
our students either come
from Mexico Beach or drive
all the way 'from Tyndall Air
Force Base.,
Our classes will still be
held on Thursdays from 5 to
6 p.m. for children and 6 to 7
p.m. for adults.
Anyone interested in
joining us. please call Lisa at

By Kay Kelley
When I get all high and
mighty thinking that Some-
body should do Something to
make sure the water in our
creeks and bays stay clean,
I have to first think about all
the factors in my life that add
to the problem.
I have driven cars that
passed excessive gas and oil
when started up, in the form
of smoke out of the tailpipe.
That adds to the air pollution
that rain must fall through.
I have driven trucks that
dripped, dripped, dripped oil
wherever they were parked.
I have cranked lawnmower
after lawnmower, unaware
that the exhaust was leaving
an ever so slight oily residue
on the ground. I have (gasp!)
fertilized grass without first
calibrating my spreader. I
have rinsed paint brushes
out onto th6 grass. I have
emptied the last few drops
of a gasoline and oil mixture
into the street, so as not to
introduce the crud in the


bottom of the container into
my small engine carburetors.
I hate to admit these things.
It was always with a twinge of
guilt that I knew better and
did them anyway.
The point of this con-
fession is that even as con-
scious as I try to be about not
polluting our environment, I
still do my part. I am only
one of billions of us who each
do just a little bit of harm.
The cumulative effect on the
water system that fuels our
planet makes me wonder
how we ever get water clean
enough to drink.
Thirty years ago a pro-
vision was written into the
Clean Water Act (remember
that?) that ordered state and
local governments to clean
up their rainwater runoff be-
fore it polluted bigger water-
ways. For the most part, this-
decree was largely ignored.
The Environmental Protec-
tion Agency, in charge of en-
forcing this provision, didn't
exactly pursue it with enthu-


siasm. Now, though, as ur-
ban sprawl is reaching over
'ever larger areas, environ-
mental groups such as our
local chapter of Riverkeepers
are forcing the EPA to take
more action. As a result the
world as we know it changes,
becoming pockmarked with
ditches and varying sized re-
tention ponds.
Containing water, in-
stead of draining it away,
helps control flooding along
creeks and rivers. It also
helps clean polluted water
by filtering it through plants
and soil. When it falls to
its job of washing the earth
clean, rainwater ends up a
lot like the water in your mop
bucket: dirty.
It was the news that an
estimated half, half, of the
pollution in our waterways
comes from our yards and
gardens that really got to me.
I, whose lifetime career deci-
sion was based around the
philosophy of 'first, do no
harm', was half the problem.


Established 193/ Serving Gulf county and surrounding areas for 67 years


I do try to balance things out,
in my own way. I plant trees
and shrubs and promote the
use of native plants. I spend
endless hours explaining
why it is not wise to water
our yards, even with free wa-
ter, every day. I am obsessive
about picking up litter. I fer-
tilize with organic or slow-
release nutrients, favor soap
and water for pest control,
and only resort to heavy pes-
ticides when a problem is .re-
ally, really bad. And now I'm
introducing as many people
as possible to the idea of rain
gardens.
Rain garden has a pretty
sound to it, much prettier
that 'bioswale' or soakagee
trenches' or 'pervious surfac-
es'. A rain garden sounds like


something everyone would
want in their yards, a focal
point even. Your own oasis.
A rain garden is a low
spot in the ground for crap,
crud, and corruption to settle
into.
When it rains, the first
few minutes of heavy rain
give the earth a good rinsing.
This rinses off the oils in the
driveway, and the pesticides
and pollen in the grass, and
deposits them in the rain gar-
den. From that shallow pool,
where the yuck is cleaned out
of the water by mulches and
plants, and the natural slow
filtering effect of our sandy
soils, comes cleaner water for
aquifers and estuaries.
It is no small thing that
we can wade into the wa-


ters of St. Joseph Bay with
our grandparents and our
grandchildren, fishing and
scalloping, and enjoy the fish
and scallops without worry-
ing whether they are safe to
eat. We could be casting an
anxious eye to the north, to
the little towns and cities
that drain into the creeks
that drain into the rivers that
drain into our bays, fervently
hoping that Somebody there
is doing Something.
Creating a rain garden in
your yard is not a big deal to
accomplish, but the ramifi-
cations can be tremendous.
Think about it.

David vs. Goliath...While others thought the giant was too big to kill David thought he
was too big to miss! No doubt it was a crisis situation. There was no way around the fact that
Goliath was over 9ft. tall, heavily trained, & ready to kill. But, God does His best work in seem-
ingly impossible situations.
Today, you can turn your desperation into dependence on God. Don't be afraid. Surren-
der to God (not defeat) & His salvation. Move forward with confidence, courage, & conviction.
Don't let the giants in your life defeat you. Remember, you "car do all things through Him who
strengthens" you.

So you're pregnant and
the overwhelming good news
comes with a lot of mixed
emotions---excitement/joy,
anxiety, fear etc. This news
brings the realization that
you've created another hu-
man being and you'll be re-
sponsible for that other being
until adulthood. Gosh, how
is it, a planned event (possi-

in such an emotional whirl-

throughout the pregnancy?
Have you already chosen an
OB/GYN and started prena-
tal care? You realize what
you drink, eat and smoke will
have a direct effect on your
baby. You'll need to start
eating healthy, taking prena-

THE BOOMERANG
EFFECT!

There is an interesting
trend developing in single-
family homes: the kids aren't
leaving! U.S. Census Bureau
statistics show a whopping
14% increase in the number of
families with grown children
living at home.
Rising tuition, a sluggish
job market, and the high cost
of rent are the major reasons
that adult children are moving
back or staying at home.
Consider that in cities like Los
Angeles, Atlanta and Boston,
it is common for rent for a
one-bedroom apartment to
exceed $1,000 a monthly
Instead of sharing a place
with ten roommates, kids are
opting to stay with their folks
and save money for down pay-
ment on their own home. This
presents a wonderful opportu-


Bartfool Properties
nill for parents to foster their
children's financial security
and respons-ibilitv.
Parents might consider
buying a property where their
child attends college or uni-
versity, building equity until
graduation. Then you have
some choices. Keep it and
gain, income from renting it
(although you'll probably have
to hire a maintenance person).
Or sell it, likely at a profit. Or
maybe your son or daughter
will want to stay.
If you're looking at new
houses and anticipating an
adult .child living at home,
look for amenities like ample
parking, guest suites (remem-
ber when they were "mother-
in-law suites"?), or a guest-
house. Today's real estate
market offers many options to
accommodate this recent
trend toward "boomerang"
kids.

Facts About Smokeless
Tobacco Florida
Smokeless tobacco use
is widespread, especially
among young men.
More than 5% of Ameri-
can males use snuff or chew
products daily. .
In Florida, more than
145, 0000 people are regular
smokeless users.


Smokeless tobacco use
leads to oral cancer, other
cancers, and heart dis-
ease.
The.U.S. Surgeon Gen-
eral has concluded that
smokeless tobacco can cause
oral cancer and can lead to
nicotine addiction.
More than three-quar-
ters of daily users have non-
cancerous and pre-cancerous
lesions in their mouths.
Smokeless use has
been linked to cancers of the
esophagus, larynx, and stom-
ach, and is a risk factor for
cardiovascular disease.
Smokeless tobacco' is
addictive and as difficult
to quit as smoking.

I oROTENCARDNIC


Nationally Syndicated Columinst to Address Caregiver


By Kay Kelley
As a -kid, did you ever
play in puddles after a heavy
rain? I did, despite my moth-
er's dire warnings about ring-
worm. As soon as I figured
out that a little ringworm
wouldn't kill me, there were a
few years when you couldn't
keep me out of rain puddles.
The other kids and I would
spray through them on our
bicycles and see who could
throw the biggest wake. We
could squish soft mud up be-
tween our toes and gross out
other kids who wouldn't take
off their shoes. The absolute
best was finding a big puddle
of rainwater in a nice grassy
yard. That water looked
cleaner, and we would jump
and splash and make a gen-
eral mess of ourselves.
This whole idea of rain
gardens takes me back to
that youthful pleasure. Life
in the sixties was all about
perfecting the art of grad-
ing and drainage, and find-
ing these big rain puddles in
my little farming town meant
that someone hadn't gotten it
right yet.
These days, it could
mean that someone is ahead
of the curve. Installing a rain
garden in a yard controls
storm water runoff and helps


clean water before it reaches
the aquifers and creeks.
Building a rain garden is
as simple as taking advan-
tage of natural low spots in
the yard, or as complicated
as routing roof and driveway
runoff to a shallow depres-
sion in a specific place. Ex-
tensive work involving large
equipment and underground
drains may be better left to
the professionals, so con-
sider this the easy way,,tak-
ing advantage of natural low
spots.
To know how big a rain
garden should be, calculate
the, square footage of your
roof and paved surfaces, and
locate the rain garden where
it will make use of gutters
and driveway runoff. In these
sandy soils, the garden will
ideally be 20 to 30 percent of
that square footage. Making
it wide and shallow ensures
that even heavy rains will
drain away within a few days.
Therefore mosquitoes don't
get a chance to proliferate in
the standing water.
There are really good
websites available on rain,
gardens if you have access
to an online computer. If
not, call the county exten-
sion office and they will send
literature to you. Whether we

are in Florida or Michigan
or Oklahoma, the basics for
constructing a rain garden
are the same: large, shal-
low depressions, plantings of
shrubs and perennials, and
mulch. Almost all the pub-
lications I've seen push for
the use of native plants, but
I would design a garden that
compliments the existing
yard, too. The natives may
be best able to go from dry to
saturated conditions, but wa-
ter-loving plants like banan-
as and cannas and elephant
ears would help tie those na-
tives in with a more tropical
theme. Do a little research.
If a plant has to have good
drainage and does not toler-
ate wet feet, it will not be a
good choice for a rain garden.
But the list of plants that re-
spond beautifully to both wet
and dry conditions is too long
to go into here. Some of my
personal favorites, though,
would include cypress trees,
most varieties of iris, ferns,
rain lilies, buttonbush, sand
cord grass... well, I have too
many favorites to list!
Using nice thick mulch
in your gardeh is critical to
prevent erosion and filter the
water. I always prefer us-
ing pine straw over cypress
mulch, because as the say-
ing goes, why kill a tree to
plant a flower? Leaves and
grass clippings will work, but
wood chips are liable to float.
Actually this fits right in to
my philosophy of lazy gar-
dening...using that which is
a byproduct of yard work. It
is easier to rake pine straw or
leaves into a bed than it is to
haul it out to the street to be
thrown away.
That's it for now on the
rain garden subject. And I've
been nice. I haven't harped
one time on the beautiful
sod yards that don't belong
on the beach or how we pay
our friends from Ever-Tru'-
Green-Chem-Lawn to add to
the pollution of our bays.
It is raining now, so I
believe I'll go splash around
in some puddles, just for old
time's sake.

Award winning author,
syndicated columnist, and
renowned expert on Aging,
Bard Lindeman will be the
featured speaker at Gulf
County's Inaugural Caregiv-
ers Conference, to be held
June 16th at the Senior Citi-
zen's Center in Port St. Joe.
The conference, the first
of its kind in Gulf .County,
was planned by the dedicated
professionals of Gulf Coun-
ty's eldercare community.
Working together, the
group has planned the event
over several months, to honor
and assist those who care for
loved ones in their homes.
Whether it be a spouse,
an aged parent, another rela-
tive, or a close friend, care-
givers are the unsung heroes
of the community. According
to the Family Caregivers Al-
liance:
52 million informal and
family caregivers provide care
to one who is ill or disabled.
25.8 million family
caregivers provide personal
assistance to adults with a
disability or chronic illness.

ery four households (23% or
22.4 million households). is

involved in caregiving to per-
sons aged 50 or over.
The value of the servic-
es family caregivers provide
for "free" is estimated to $257
billion a year. That is twice as
much as is actually spent on
homecare and nursing home
services.
Family caregivers often
work 24 hours a day, 7 days
a week, 365 days a year -
many with little or no respite
or assistance.
The program will feature
vendors from the area, pro-
fessional speakers, a round-
table forum, a spa with
massage and manicures, a
catered lunch and a distin-
guished keynote speaker.

Outreach Programs Contribute to Unprecedented Diversity at Florida- State University College of Medicine


Outreach programs at the
Florida State University Col-
lege of Medicine have played a
key role in the admission of a
remarkably diverse first-year
medical school class-one in
which minorities and women
are both in the majority.
Of the 80 students in
the medical school's class of
2009, which began classes
this week, 51.3 percent are
from minority populations,
62.5 percent are female, 28.6
percent are nontraditional
(older) and 15 percent are
from rural or disadvantaged
backgrounds.
A full 20 percent of the
students in the new first-year
class are from ethnic groups
identified by the Association
of American, Medical Col-
leges as underrepresented
minorities, which include
African-American, Mexican-


American, mainland Puerto
Rican and Native American
students. By comparison,
about 11 percent of medical
students in the United States
are underrepresented mi-
norities, according to a 2002
report by AAMC.
Out of the 224 students
now enrolled in the medical
school's four classes, 41 per-
cent are non-white, and, 17
percent are under-represent-
ed minorities.
"We can attribute much
of .our success in attracting
such a diverse student pop-.
ulation to our institutional
culture and to our outreach
programs," said Dr. J. Ocie
Harris, dean of the College
of Medicine. "More than just
recruiting traditionally un-
derrepresented students, we
have put in place a pipeline
program to increase the pool


of applicants from under-
served communities, such as
rural and inner-city areas."
The medical school's
outreach programs began in
1994 under FSU's Program
in Medical Sciences, a first-
year medical school program
operated in conjunction with
the University of Florida that
preceded the creation of the
FSU College of Medicine. The
.programs begin in middle
school and continue through
the post-baccalaureate level.
They include science classes
for middle and high school
students, and after-school
programs such as tutoring,
mentoring, test preparation,
and hands-on experience in
physician offices.
Uchenna Ikediobi is
among the nine members of
the new class who partici-
pated in the medical school's


outreach programs.
Ikediobi began in the
SSTRIDE outreach program
during her freshman year at
Rickards High School in Tal-
lahassee and enrolled this
week at the medical school
after eight years in the pro-
gram, first as a student and
later as a mentor.- The pre-
college component of the
medical school's outreach


programs, SSTRIDE stands
for Science Students Togeth-
er Reaching Instructional Di-
versity and Excellence.
"After all the FSU Col-
lege of Medicine has invested
in my success, I couldn't be
happier to be a student here,"
Ikediobi said.
Five of the new students
came directly from the medi-
cal school's Bridge Program,

and inner-city populations
and offers them the chance

"I'm grateful for Bridge
Program here at the FSU Col-
lege of Medicine," said first-
year medical student Erica
Lindsay, who went through
the program last year. "It
has given me the opportunity
to explore and reach a level
of potential and confidence
within myself that I didn't
even know I possessed, and I
believe I will be a better phy-
sician because of it."

Congressman Allen

ed in favor of the Agriculture
Appropriations Act for fiscal
year 2006 (HR 2744), secur-
ing $446,000 for research of
post harvest oyster treatment
(PHT). These funds will allow
the University of Florida to
continue research of various,
PHTs.
"Already under tremen-.
dous financial constraints,
the oyster industry stands
to suffer further economic
loss if a national standard is
not recognized for PHT," said
Congressman Boyd. "This
funding will allow the Uni-
versity of Florida to continue
this crucial research and
keep the oyster industry vi-
able in Florida."
Currently, there is no na-

Gulf Area Host Families Needed Now


'Foreign high school stu-
dents are scheduled to arrive
soon for academic semes-
ter and year program home
stays, and the sponsoring or-
ganization needs a few more
local host families.
According to Pacific In-
tercultural Exchange (P.I.E)
Executive Director, John
Doty, the students are all be-
tween the ages of 15 and 18
years, are English-speaking,
having their own spending
money, carry accident and
health insurancee' and are,
anxious to share their cul-
tural experiences with their
new American families. P.I.E.
currently has programs to
match, almost every family's
needs, ranging in length from
a semester to a full academic
year, where the students at-
tend local high schools.
P.I.E. area representa-
tives match students with
host families by finding com-
mon interests and lifestyles
through an informal in-home
meeting. Prospective host
families are able to review
student applications and
select the perfect match. As
there are no "typical" host
families, P.I.E. can fit a stu-
dent into just about any situ-
ation, whether it is a single
parent, a childless couple, a
retired couple or a large fam-
:ly.
,Families' who host for
P.ILE. are also eligible to
claim a $50 per month chari-


table contribution deduction
on their itemized tax returns
for each month they host a
sponsored student.
For the upcoming pro-
grams, P.I.E. has students
from Germany, the Former
Soviet Union, Venezuela,
Argentina, Brazil, Macedo-
nia, Hungary, Korea, Mexico,
Australia, Yugoslavia, China,
and many other countries.
P.I.E. is also participating
in two special government-
funded programs to bring
scholarship students from
the Newly Independent States
of the former Soviet Union
as well as predominantly Is-
lamic countries such as Ye-
men, Syria, Jordan, Moroc-
co, Kuwait, Iraq and Qatar to
the United States. P.I.E. is a
non-profit educational orga-
nization that has sponsored
more than 25,000 students
from 45 countries since its
founding in 1975. The orga-
nization is designated by the
United. States Department
of State afd is listed by the
Council on Standards for
International Educational
Travel (CSIET), certifying
that the organization com-
plies with the standards set
forth in CSIET's Standards
for International Educational
Travel Programs.
Doty encourages families
to contact the program im-
mediately, as it will allow the
proper time for the students
and hosts to get to know one

on Tuesday, May 31, and will

advantage of this opportunity
and apply for grants through
the SAFER program," said
Congressman Boyd. "This
is a major effort by the fed-
eral government to ensure
that our firefighters continue
to have the equipment and
training they need to respond
to all hazards. I strongly sup-
port the critical mission of
our nation's firefighters in
assuring that our communi-
ties have adequate protection
from fites."

DON'T "DISCOUNT'
YOUR SALE PRICE!
Many people have asked,
"Why is your commission,
based on the selling price of
the home?" They are usually
concerned about why the sell-
er of a $400,000 home has to
pay more than the seller of a
$100,000 home. The simple
answer to this question is that
this is the way it has always
been done
, As the sale prices of
homes have climbed in recent
years, so the earnings of suc-
cessful agents have likewise
risen. While commissions
commonly range from 6% to
7%, in areas where home
prices are particularly high
you might find an agent who is
willing to negotiate their fee.
However, this is quite a
different scenario from "dis-
count brokers" you might find
advertising flat fees or lower-


Barefoot Properties
Lhan-customary percentages.
You are well advised to do
your research before seeking
such representation.
An agent operating
through a discount' broker
might charge less, but might
offer less too. Reduced fees
could mean reduced services -
perhaps less advertising, or
requiring the .seller to host
open houses. Also be aware
that your listing might hot be
included on the Multiple
Listing Service (MLS), where
every agent with qualified buy-
ers can locate it.
Everyone wants to save
money, but don't skimp on
professional fees. Your best
bet to save money is to make
more money on your sale by.
using the best representation
you can find.

Bus Driver Training to Start in July


Bus drivers have a very
important role as a part of the
Gulf County School System.
Bus drivers are the first
representative of the school
system that the students
come in contact with in the
mornings and the last they
see in the afternoon. .
Bus drivers provide
transportation for students
.in areas that are too inacces-
sible for students to walk to
school.
The safety and well being
of every student that rides a
bus to school is in the hands
of a bus driver.
Bus drivers often serve
as unofficial counselors, ad-
visors and friends for many
students.
It takes a very special
person to be a bus driver. It
demands someone who deep-
ly cares for the people they
come in contact with, espe-
cially children. It requires
someone who is extremely
:safety conscious, someone
who makes good decisions
and someone who desires to
help others.
If you think that you have
these qualifications, the Gulf


County School Board has im-
mediate openings for substi-
tute bus drivers.
A bus driver training class
will be offered beginning Mon-
day, July 11, at 6 p.m. EDT,
at the Adult School in Port
St. Joe. Training will consist
of 40 total hours including 20
hours in the classroom and
20 hours on a bus. Training
is free if an applicant drives.
a bus for the Gulf County
School Board. All other appli-
cants for bus driver training
must pay a $52 fee. All appli-


cants must be fingerprinted,
take a bus driver physical
and be drug tested before be-
ing approved by the School
Board as a driver.
Once certified to be a bus
driver for the Gulf County
School Board, a licensed driv-
er will be eligible for any full
time bus driver positions that
'come open.
