South Gulf County homeown-
ers will likely breathe a sigh of relief
on July 5 as the county begins
work on the emergency berm con-
struction project.
They will not, however, be able
to exhale completely.
These berms are designed to
protect beachfront property from a
five-year storm event, which accord-
ing to Gulf Emergency Management
Coordinator Marshal Nelson, may
be as insignificant as a minimal
tropical storm.
With the mere wisps of Tropical
Storm Arlene having swept away
what little sand remained after last
hurricane season, Nelson agreed
that the berm construction was lit-
tle more than a temporary patch as
opposed to a permanent solution.
"This is one and half million
dollars of taxpayers' money about
to get washed away," Nelson said.
The berms will be construct-
ed with a combination of fund-
ing from the Federal Emergency
Management Agency and the state
legislature.
In their first estimate, the
FEMA projected a $460,000 cost
to construct emergency berms, the
first step, many homeowners had
hoped, in a total beach renourish-
ment effort on Cape San Blas.

Emergency berm construction on Cape San Bias beaches, slated to begin next month, will take place between the Stump Hole and St. Joseph Peninsula State Park.


After three bids were returned
to the county, with the lowest bid
almost twice that of the FEMA's ini-
tial estimate, the county requested
an extension for use of the federal
funding.
Under normal circumstances,
Nelson said FEMA would be respon-
sible for only 75 percent of funding


with the state and county matching
12.5 percent each.
However, since the presi-
dent declared a Federal State of
Emergency after last year's record
setting hurricane season, FEMA is
now responsible for 90 percent of
the project's $841,260 cost with the
state and county responsible for


only a five percent match.
Therefore, Gulf County is
responsible for $42,500 of the berm
construction project. Nelson said
the match would not be a hin-
drance to beginning construction
because he was instructed by the
county commission to proceed.
"They told me to go ahead, that


they would find the money," Nelson
said.
An additional $870,000 was
handed down from the state legisla-
ture to enhance FEMA's emergency
berm construction.
With the additional funding
from the state, Nelson said the

Port St. Joe to Celebrate



Independence on the Coast


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
The Drifters, an Elvis imper-
sonator and a hula dancer walk
into Frank Pate Park.
And then the fun begins.
Beginning on Friday, July 1,
Port St. Joe plays host to the won-
derfully eccentric four-day festival
known as Independence on the
Coast.
"It's a wonderful family event,"
said Independence on the Coast
board member, Sandra Chafin, who
expects more than 5,000 people to
come out for the festivities.
A celebration of art, music and
patriotism, the festival kicks off at
5 p.m. Friday with a Gulf Alliance
for Local Arts (GALA)-sponsored re-
ception at The Thirsty Goat, featur-
ing the photography of local artist
Dana Palmer.
On Saturday morning, a motley
crew of pirates will sail into Frank
Pate Park and invade the shore, an-
nouncing their arrival with cannon


But theirs is a friendly invasion.
The pirates will share their treasure
with the children in attendance,
conduct a treasure hunt and pose
for photographs.
The kids can trade styling tips
with the pirates in the Children's
Pirate Costume Contest, held Sat-
urday afternoon.
The first 40 children to visit the
Chamber of Commerce booth will
be invited to the pirate's feast at the
tennis courts, where they will break
bread with the well-mannered ma-
rauders.
For those interested in pur-
chasing, not plundering, arts and
crafts booths will feature the handi-
work of local artisans.
Bennie Anderson and the Drift-
ers will headline the festival's musi-
cal entertainment, taking the stage
at 8 p.m. on July 4.
Formed in 1953, The Drifters
had several Top 40 hits, including
"There Goes My Baby," "Under the


Boardwalk," and "On Broadway."
Anderson is the quintet's lon-
gest standing member, joining the
group in 1962.
The versatile Elvis imperson-
ator Todd Herendeen, back by
popular demand, will open for The
Drifters, and the Steel Drum Band,
Swing Shift Band and gospel group
Forgiven 5 will also perform.
Festival goers are encouraged
to bring their own chairs for the
concerts.
Many of the events are family-
oriented. Kids can participate in the
watermelon seed spitting contest
and sack races, or learn the hula
and Native American grass dance.
Monday's entertainment boasts
a patriotic theme, with a ceremony
honoring veterans and a military
fly-over courtesy of Tyndall Air
Force Base.
An impressive fireworks display
will close the festival, with sparks
flvine after The Drifters' set.

I'm sitting on my porch watch-
ing Arlene's winds blow. With lit-
tle else to do, I decide it's time to
write about local hurricane history
and personal observations from 48
years of living on the Gulf Coast.
In my stories of shipwrecks and
lighthouses, many of their stories
have a direct relationship with hur-
ricanes. The S.S. Florida and W.J.
Keyser were sunk by hurricanes
and Cape San Blas has lost three
brick lighthouses to storms. And
don't forget the "Great Tide" that
little known intense hurricane (not
tidal wave) that blasted St. Joseph
off the map in September, 1841.
For years afterward, Florida
preachers used St. Joseph as an
example of God's wrath for its wick-
ed and sinful lifestyle.
I began teaching at Highland
View School in 1970 and stayed
until 1999 when it closed. During
these years we were flooded out
by three not-so-nice ladies: Eloise,
Kate and Opal. While none were di-
rect hits, all three came in from the
west and caused considerable dam-
age to Gulf County.
Eloise, a Cat. 3, with gusts to
135 mph, went ashore near Sea-
grove Beach on September 23,

1975. She was the strongest hur-
ricane to hit the Panhandle in the
20th Century.
In 1985, we had a "near
miss" with Elena on September 1.
Apalachicola had 125 mph gusts.
The governor, Bob Graham, told
us to evacuate or die. As in all
storms before or since, I stayed and
watched with awe and fascination
as the storm raged. I have a simi-
lar philosophy as my Islamic guide

in Egypt, although his is religious
and mine is not. "When your time
comes, it is already written," he
said.
Later that year, on November
21, Kate arrived and crossed over
Crooked Island on Tyndall. Flooded
again, we moved to the First Baptist
Church until the new year.
When 1995 came around I was
confident enough to tell the ladies I

It was not a good day. The August 1, 1899 hurricane swept these schooners
and barks ashore on Dog Island. This small intense storm, much like the St.
Joseph storm, was hardly felt more than 20 miles from its center. Carrabelle, a
direct hit, was totally wrecked. (Florida Photographic Collection, State Archives

Lions Unleashed in Butler's Restaurant


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
You can take a group
of Lions to Butler's but you
can't make them behave.
A poem by Lions Club
historian and poet laureate
Bill McGee set the tone for
the club's 50th anniversary
bash on Thursday night.
After making his way up
the list of club officers, Mc-
Gee set his sights on outgo-
ing president, Jim Norton.


"Our president it seems,
was a bit over controlling /
with motions presented, he
just kept on rolling," recited
McGee, as the large crowd
laughed wildly.
Norton, playing straight
man to a crowd teeming with
comedic foils, thanked Mc-
Gee for his "report."
"Once a month, we get a
report and it's always quite
informative," said Norton.
Though the Lions cel-


ebrated under the watchful
eyes of their female compan-
ions, they frequently required
some reigning in.
Norton, clanging the Li-
ons Club bell, did his best to
restore order.
On Thursday night, the
Lions added three new mem-
bers to their fold, John Sch-
weizer, Brian Marshall and
Tim Kerigan.
Glenn Elders was on
hand to administer the oath,

asking the inductees to
pledge that they would ac-

as Lions Club members and
work for the betterment of
the community.
After the induction, new
members received a member-
ship packet, Lions Club hat
and the traditional yellow
vest.

the-scenes work in the club.
"Bob Willis has done one
heck of a job this year," said

presented several service
awards, beginning with the
50th Anniversary Recogni-
tion, given to Lions Club
charter member Leonard Be-
lin, who joined the group in
February 1955.
Elders and Jim Conway
received the Leonard Be-
lin Attendance Award and
shrugged off the criticism of
a fellow Lion "That's just be-
cause they had nowhere else
to go."
Taking home Service
Awards for their long-stand-
ing membership were Roy
Smith (30 years), Tom Gibson
(20), and Kenny Wood (15).
"These are in no way re-
lated to attendance awards,",
clarified presenter Kyle Ad-
kinson.
Boyd Pickett was hon-
ored with the Service Proj-
ect of the Year award for his
work at the Scallop Festival
and Mike Davis and Charlie
Weston, who spearheaded
this year's golf tournament,
were given Fundraiser Proj-
ect of the Year awards.
The final two awards rec-
ognized individual member
achievement.
"Years ago, we had a
member of the Lions Club
who enjoyed Lionism like no
one else did," said Bob Wil-
lis before presenting the Spe-
cial Member Tribute award


Norton. "I sometimes feel like
an anchor man I can't do
anything without his notes."
Of the officers taking
their oaths Thursday night,
Adkinson was the only re-
peat, reprising his role as
treasurer.
Rounding out the list
were Elders as tail twister,
Jim Conway, Lion tamer,
Robb Sarno, secretary, Mark
Costin, third vice presi-


dent, Andy Smith, second
vice president, Jim Ander-
son, first vice president and
Weston, president.
Weston addressed the
crowd, saying it was "a real
honor and a privilege" to be
selected president.
"The Lions Club has been
one of best things that's hap-
pened to me since I moved
here," added Weston.
As tail twister, Elders
pledged to "raise the whole
moral turpitude of this club."
He began with an attack on
Lion Smith.
Smith, said Elders, had
purloined an apron from his
wife, Fran, for a Lions steak
cook out. Elders was there to
see to it that the apron was
returned.
"Darling, I apologize for
your husband," said Elders
to Fran, as he handed her the
bundled apron. "I hope you
will rest a little easier know-
ing your family heirloom is
back."
After handing out a series
of door prizes some good,
some gag, Norton thanked
the staff of Butler's for host-
ing the event for the past 10
years.
"We're going to miss you
guys," said Norton.
. After presenting the la-
dy's room door the "grand
door prize" to Pickett, But-
ler's Elaine Kennedy left the
crowd to ponder her cryptic
remark.
"Don't be surprised if an-
other Butler's pops up some-
where," she said.


Charter member Leonard Belin (with son, Jim] receives the
50th Anniversary Recognition. Belin is the club's only charter mem-
ber, joining in February 1955.

City Approves Zoning Changes Tied to Marina Deal


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
Port St. Joe city commis-
sioners on Tuesday approved
zoning changes to parcels
in and around the marina
complex as part of an overall
land swap with The St. Joe
Co.


Under the conditions of
the land swap, the company
and city are swapping par-
cels along and around the
waterfront, with The St. Joe
Co. also exercising its lease
option with the city to pur-
chase the marina for more
than $4 million in cash.


Tuesday's action, coming
during the City Commission's
regular bi-monthly meeting,
set in place for advertise-
ment an ordinance which
changes zoning for a portion
of those lands included in
the swap from industrial to
mixed use.


"This was part of the
terms and conditions in the
deal we've discussed," said
Clay Smallwood, president
of St. Joe Timberlands. "This
just clears up all the uses."
The ordinance creates
the St. Joe Marina Planned
Unit Development (PUD)
Zoning District and sets forth
the requirements for uses,
future platting and certifica-
tion of any future changes to
the document.
The PUD permits sin-
gle-family and multi-family
residential units with density
not to exceed seven units
per gross acre. The ordi-
nance limits wet and dry
boat slips at the marina to
199, with marina operations
as mapped out in the ordi-
nance roughly equivalent to
what exists now: boat stor-
age, pumping facilities and
ancillary facilities.
Total commercial space,
which could include a res-
taurant and ship store and
other commercial outlets,
would not exceed 10,000
square feet.
There are also provisions
in the PUD ordinance for
active recreation tied to the
marina; as well as passive
recreation areas, including,
potentially, hiking, nature
and bike trails, docks and
piers, viewing platforms and
picnic areas.
Provisions for possible
open spaces for common use
of residents and guests of the
marina are also part of the
ordinance.
The district established
by the PUD includes some of
the lands the city will receive
as part of the swap, includ-
ing a parcel along the south
end of the marina and along
Baltzell Avenue, but it will be
up to the city to decide, once
the deal is completed, how it
would want to use the lands
under the zoning established
by the ordinance.
The city will also review
and approve plats for devel-
opments within the PUD dis-
trict.

Tuesday's meeting:

to pull together public and
private funds in an effort
to purchase and restore the


Port Theatre.
The DRA was seeking the
city's approval of the concept
before moving forward, said
Carol Davis, representing the
DRA.
In broad strokes, the
DRA has established a feasi-
bility committee to examine
the potential for pooling pri-
vate investment funds with
available public historical
preservation dollars to pur-
chase the theater from Wade
and Paula Clark.
The DRA hopes to soon
put up "earnest" money to
carve out a 60-90 day win-
dow to allow the agency to
proceed with putting togeth-
er a partnership to execute
the deal. That earnest money
would come from existing
DRA funds, Davis said.
Should the deal move
ahead, the plan would be
to restore the theater to its
"glory days" and operate it
in a fashion similar to the
Martin Theater in Panama
City, which hosts a range
of events each year, Davis
said.

Don't Shoot the Messenger


Last week county commission
chairman Nathan Peters, Jr., broke
a long silence on the issue of county-
wide voting.
And while it was refreshing to have
Peters lay out his reasoning to Star
reporter Despina Williams, we would
respectfully take issue with Peters' at
times tangled logic for continuing to
fight against the voters of the coun-
ty who overwhelmingly supported a
return to county-wide voting last fall.
Well start with statements regard-
ing the work done by the committee
charged by commissioners to exam-
ine how the county could best move
forward to meeting the desires of the
voters they represent.
Peters' statement that the commit-
tee should have considered an option
offered by a local resident last year to
return four districts to county-wide
while leaving Peters' district a single-
member entity is a non-starter.
Not only has this suggestion been
voted down by commissioners in the
past, but it was not even part of the
equation of the committee's delibera-
tions. The committee was to examine a
return to full county-wide voting not
a variant strain of such a system.
To establish that system, we would
also argue, would create what essen-
tially would be a district of more con-
centrated power for its commissioner;
not precisely what the voters had in
mind from our viewpoint.
His argument that the commit-
tee did not offer him the forum for
proper input on the issues surround-
ing county-wide voting or redistricting
also have a false ring as the records of
the committee indicate.
The committee, member appoint-
ed by Peters was, according to the
records of the committee, the only one
besides chairwoman Julia Cunning-
ham to attend every meeting and the
committee's recommendations were
ultimately voted on unanimously by
all five members,.
The' committee was given the task,
Peters' appointee showed up for every
meeting there was plenty of oppor-
tunity to have Peters' concerns and
views voiced in the committee.
It would also be argued here that
Peters is correct in asserting that her
15 years in the office helped Shirley
Jenkins win her initial run for county
Tax Collector, making her the most
qualified person for the job.
By almost any measure, the Tax
Collector, taking in taxes no one wants
to pay, would likely not qualify as the
most popular person in the county.
However, one would be hard-pressed
- as the lack of opposition to Jenkins'
re-election last year would attest to
find anyone who did not think that
Jenkins does a wonderful job.
She is indeed proof that a qualified
candidate, regardless of ethnicity, can
be elected, and re-elected, in a county
which is more than 80 percent white.


And the logic Peters used here,
which links to his assertion that he
wants to maintain single-member dis-
tricts in part to ensure minority rep-
resentation in the future, turns on its
ear the concept of elections based on
qualifications and abilities, as opposed
to factors such as skin-tone.
We would submit that line of rea-


soning does not hunt.
As Peters queried of Williams in
her story, there is no doubt there is
much work to be done in this county
to improve race relations. The rail-
road tracks in Port St. Joe, the con-
trast between Reid Avenue and Martin
Luther King Blvd. attest to a need for
more outreach, the continued search
for more common ground.
But we would submit, as this
paper long has, that this is no lon-
ger the 1960's, the 1970's or the
1980's. County-wide voting is needed
as we undergo what one commission-
er described this week as an evolution
that could not have been envisioned
10 years ago.
Much of Peters' arguments about
continuing to fight county-wide voting
are grounded in the past and all of us,
black, white, Hispanic, must exam-
ine how we get to the future while
shedding the prejudices and mindsets
which dominated this county 20, 30
and 40 years ago.
Which brings us to a central argu-
ment -'county-wide voting would pro-
vide not less representation but more
for every voter in the county. Instead of
losing one commissioner, they would
gain four.
Florida statutes define county-wide
voting as just such an arrangement
- five county commissioners with dis-
tricts of nearly equal proportion who
shall be elected by all qualified voters
in the county.
If we are going to talk equality,
it's worth noting that Peters' district
has more than 600 fewer people than
any of the other four; there are no
fire departments he oversees, no dirt
roads he must keep passable and the
least ability to absorb more popula-
tion growth.
In that sense, the arguments of
other commissioners to redraw district
boundaries while considering county-
wide voting have resonance.
But what it really all boils down to,
we would suggest, is that 67 percent
of county voters supported county-
wide voting last year, a majority in
every commissioner's district.
If commissioners are truly mind-
ful of the will of the people, if they are
truly in office to serve the wishes of
the voters, this is a no-brainer.
It's time for commissioners, at this
point Peters in particular given the
logistics outlined by the committee, to
jump on the bandwagon lest they be
run right over.


Do you ever sit and pon-
der on what is going on in
the world?
It makes no sense to me.
I don't reckon I'm going to
straighten it out in my head
by talking to you about it.
And, please believe me, the
very last thing I want to do
here is confuse you. Nor do
I want to "make a point" Or
"sound off'. I don't have any
hidden agendas or axes to
grind....
I'm just on the editorial
page out of the kindness of
the newspaper. As you well
know I don't editorialize on
nothing!
I do think out loud every
once in a while. But as I do
so I remember very well Will
Rogers timeless admonition
that "Everybody is ignorant,
only on different subjects."
The United States has
some international prison-
ers detained in Guantanamo
Bay, Cuba. I have no idea
why they are there. My limit-
ed understanding of the situ-
ation is they pose a threat
and/or have given aid and
comfort or have information
about those that are working
to kill every man, woman and
child in America. If this is the
case they ought to be there
I do know that Amnesty
International and the Inter-
national Red Cross and other
groups, governments and
individuals are clamoring for
the release of these "detain-
ees". These highly regarded
international organizations
are monitoring closely how
we feed, clothe, house and
provide medical treatment
to these prisoners. If one of
them gets a hang nail under
our watch care, it becomes a
world wide tragedy immedi-
ately simulcast on the news
screens of a hundred and
ninety-seven countries from
Peru to Western Slabolia.
Just recently word got
out that some of the guards
at Guantanamo may, or may
not, have improperly handled
a book considered to be holy
by some of the detainees.
That news flash caused riots
in several countries. And
sent "impartial" newscasters
on CNN into a frenzy!
Listen, there's not a big-
ger respecter of the written
word on earth than yours
truly. I love everything from
John Milton to Zane Grey.

It's Foreign To Me!

Providing A Citizen's

Soundtrack to the Dollars
It almost seems quaint to remember that is was just
three years ago that the value of appraised taxable property
in Gulf County passed the $1 billion mark.
Particularly in light of the growing realization that tax-
able property values in the county are likely to grow by nearly
a billion dollars alone this year.
The tax rolls have yet to be certified and sent to the state,
but with the July 1 deadline approaching it appears quite
likely that taxable property values in the county will grow
from some $1.7 billion last year toward the pricey neighbor-
hood of $2.7 billion.
The state Department of Education, in preparing the
budget for the Gulf County School District projected taxable
property values at $2.2 billion and almost everyone with any
knowledge of the process and formulas is describing that
number as conservative as Property Appraiser Kesley Colbert
prepares the certified roll for submission to the state late
next week.
Now, it would be easy to digress into an assortment of
issues about these numbers that are popping skyward like
Jack's magic beanstalk.
For instance, the fact that the stunning rise in property
values is a reminder that we live in a county where specula-
tion and "flipping" are racing far ahead of real growth, that
the sticker shock many are experiencing in their search for
homes and property in the county is a desultory side effect of
living in a paradise of which folks from around the country


want a piece.
Consider just this arithmetic when they were placed
on the market by The St. Joe Co., waterfront lots at the first
phase of WindMark Beach sold for under $400,000. The most
recent resale of a waterfront lot netted $1.4 million for some
fortunate speculator.
We could also meander into Colbert's realm, where it is
worth remembering that the folks in his office are simply his-
torians the market is driving prices, not Colbert. He doesn't
set the taxes, collect the taxes, just appraises property based
on what the market says it should bear.
Or these words could try to parse the significant differ-
ence between the School Board which pretty much has its
millage rate and dollars dictated in Tallahassee and other
county taxing entities.
Those, however, are all issues for other columns, other
stories and other weeks.
What is important this week is that folks who are bearing
the brunt of this escalator to Fort Knox, who must shoulder
the heftier tax bills, provide some voice as a soundtrack
to the dollars they are sending into government coffers.
Because the coming weeks and months of summer are domi-
nated by the crafting of budgets by the county and the taxing
municipalities of Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka, and the time
to speak, to offer input, is now, before the budgets are set in
black and white, before they are coming to commissioners
for final votes.
By then it is too late and any moaning from the sidelines
is akin to whistling in the wind.
The School Board, to its credit, is already set to lower
millage rates, though not to the rollback number that level
at which the millage rate would bring in the same amount
of dollars as the previous year even School Board members
desired and were able.
A mill equals $1 per $1,000 of appraised property value.
The value of that mill will rise by all estimates by at least
$500,000, if not more, this year.
So while, as a property rich county, local taxpayers are
footing more of the burden of public schools, now roughly
90 percent of the tab under the state's funding formula, the


millage rate will be coming down, likely by more than one
mill, this year as school officials try to toe the line on capital
improvement dollars despite aging facilities.
In fact, the slant of School Board members, who have
already held one budget workshop in which the dominant
tone was how much relief can possibly be provided taxpayers
provides stark relief to a recent special meeting of the Board
of County Commissioners in which one commissioner stated
- I'm paraphrasing here that the county would have $1 bil-
lion more dollars this year and must be savvy in how those
dollars are allocated.
Not a whisper that maybe the influx of new dollars might
warrant even a slight shaving of millage rates, some tax
relief.
This is where the public must inject themselves into the
discussion.
There is no argument from here that a growing county
requires hefty dollars to provide the services needed by the
folks who live and work here. Both cities and the county
are facing tremendous challenges as growth takes down the
door.
There are real quantifiable needs.
There are equally compelling arguments, though, that
the folks who are trying to maintain or establish roots in the
county as opposed to turning a quick buck and moving on
- could use some help from their government, some salve to
the wounds speculation has wrought.
But unless voice is provided to those arguments, in
workshops and public hearings on budgets, well, the math is
easy. Silence is golden, in this case, only to those overseeing
the budgets.
So we at the newspaper urge folks to track the meetings
- budget workshops and hearings must be advertised as they
are scheduled and attend. Let your elected officials know
your views. Hold them accountable, as they should have
desired to be when they put their names on the ballot.
Come fall, when the budgets are either finalized or about
to be, it is far too late in the game to play.

I wouldn't fold down the
corner of a page to "mark
my place" in Lassie Comes
Home. But the book is only
the carrier of the idea. Do
you think Hitler's burning of
all the Bibles he could get his
hands on in the early 1940's'
stopped God?
Here's where I'm trying
to get to. Folks, there are
nations and places in the
world where the people of
those countries have taken
Americans and cut their
heads off, dismembered them
and drug body parts through
the streets for all the world to
seel My question is, where is
the International Red Cross
when Americans are being
spindled and mutilated?
Where is Amnesty Inter-
national when we need
them?
Why does the world riot
over a book and not the loss
of an American life?
How did we reach such a
place in global affairs
The obvious point is
Americans shouldn't be over
there. And I am reminded
here of another quote from
Will Rogers, "When you get
in a war five thousand miles
from the house, you went
looking for it." Of course, one
could also argue that half
the Muslim world shouldn't
be over here Or, at the
very least, foreign groups
shouldn't be allowed to fly
planes into our buildings!
Maybe it would help if the
world passed a law that you
had to live in the country you
were born in.
I just don't like the
hatred, resentment, anger
and contempt I see on the
faces of so many people
across the world for the Unit-
ed States. Hatred like that
has to be taught, and care-
fully nurtured. I know the
most disliked kid in elemen-
tary school was the biggest
boy in the sixth grade. He
was tagged the bully whether
he merited the name or notl
The United States has been
the biggest boy in the sixth
grade for as long as I can
remember.
I would love someday for
CNN to do a special on who
has contributed the most
dollars to Amnesty Interna-
tional or to the hungry in
Somalia or to tsunami vic-
tims in the Philippines or to
rebuilding France and Ger-
many after World War II or to
the United Nations or to the
exploration and drilling of oil
wells in Saudi Arabia in the
1930's....
The rest of the world


obviously doesn't keep score
like I do.
The wife of the President
of the United States goes
abroad and she is jeered at,
booed and hassled. And it
doesn't matter that it was
Laura Bush. It could have
been Hillary Clinton or Dolly
Madison. We're talking about
the President of the United
States wife Ordinary, every-
day citizens from foreign
nations come to America
and we give them junior food
stores to run or get them
jobs at automobile plants in
Detroit making twenty-seven
dollars an hour!
You tell mel
My Daddy had a third
grade education. He grew up
rough as a cob out on a dirt
clod farm way back up on
Shannon Creek. He would
cuss a mite. And he was
pretty easy to rile. We'd be
sitting in Dr. Holmes office
while Leon was getting sewed
up again and Mrs. Leroy
Cunningham would waddle
through the front door for her
annual birthing. Dad would
leap to his feet, hat in hand,
as he nodded to her or spoke
a simple greeting. It didn't
matter that Mr. Cunningham
and Dad had a running feud
about a fence boundary. Or
that Leroy, Jr. and his broth-
ers would steal a chicken
from us around Thanksgiv-
ing. A lady had entered the
room
In all the years that I
knew him I never saw Dad
display anything but the
utmost respect for EVERY
woman that came into his
presence. Rich, poor, famous
or notorious, Baptist or Pres-
byterian, it didn't matter. He
acknowledged their special
place on earth. It wasn't a
ritual or a habit. In his sense
of order it was the correct
way to lively
How come the semi-liter-
ate farm boy from the very
back of the back woods gets
it----and the rest of the world
doesn't! How could a group
of civilized men of any nation
be so instilled with hatred
that they would stoop to yell
insults at any woman?
It's foreign to mel
Well, like I said, we didn't
start out here to solve any-
thing. And I certainly don't
know enough to be expand-
ing on world affairs. I'm just
pondering out loud. But if
you don't mind, I think I'm
going to go back and read
Daniel, Ezekiel and maybe
Revelation one more time.....

Raffield Fisheries Plans Relocation and Expansion


By Blair Shiver and
Tim Croft
Star Staff Writers
Eugene Raffield hopes a
move up the Gulf County Ca-
nal will help continue a near-
ly five-year partnership with
Arizona Chemical.
He's also hoping the move
will boost the local economy
by adding a few more job op-
portunities back to his op-
eration.
That's the primary rea-
son Raffield went before the
.Board of County Commis-
sioners to seek support for
several initiatives tied to the
expansion.
Raffield's family's long-



The 'I

By Mildred Melvin
As parents and children
look forward to summer fun,
U.S. Surgeon General Rich-
ard Carmona, M.D., M.P.H.
has outlined a dozen tips to
.help keep toddlers safe and
healthy. "For toddlers every-
thing is new and wonderful.
.Curiosity and discovery are
natural parts of childhood,
and children of all ages can
benefit from a few simple
reminders to parents and
caregivers that can keep tod-
dlers healthy and safe," Dr.
Carmona said. "As a child
begins to walk, a whole host
of new dangers are available
to them. So be sure to safety-
proof your home and begin
to teach your toddler good
health and safety habits that
will last a lifetime. By appre-
ciating what parents do every
day and getting the best in-
formation out to parents and
children, I hope every child
will grow up healthy, happy
and able to reach their po-
tential."
1. Teach healthy eat-
ing. Provide three nutritious
meals supplemented with two
to three healthy snacks daily.
Feed toddlers -at the same
time as other family members
rand' allow them to ow into
feeding themselves. Offer
children nutritious foods and
let them decide how much to
eat. Avoid foods and drinks
that are high in sugar. Be a
good role model and follow the
Dietary Guidelines for Ameri-
cans. www.healthierus.gov/
dietaryguidelines
2. Begin a habit of good
oral health. Brush your
child's teeth twice a day with
a soft toothbrush. Begin
brushing for your child when
his or her teeth first appear
and continue until age three
or four when you can start
teaching your child how to
brush. Introduce fluoridated
toothpaste at age 2.
3. Don't smoke. And
don't allow anyone else to
smoke around your child.
Second-hand smoke can
have a harmful effect on your
child's breathing and can


time landmark establish-
ment will be relocating to a
site farther north on the Ca-
nal for two reasons according
to Raffield.
The primary reason is to
increase warehousing capa-
bilities for Arizona Chemical.
The current 28,000
square foot facility houses
the fisheries operation as
well as 3.5 million pounds
of Product 185, a chemical
compound manufactured at
Arizona Chemical.
"The building's full and
we need to take on more of
Panama's production," Raf-
field said.
Though he has not pur-


chased the building since
he's still in the planning stag-
es and waiting on decisions
from the county, Raffield said
he planned to increase his fa-
cility's operating capacity to
75,000 square feet, ultimate-
ly allowing storage space for
an additional eight million
pounds of resin.
The warehousing expan-
sion phase of the project,
Raffield estimates, will be
completed by the end of this
year or the first of next year.
Once the building is
completed, and at least 10
employees making an aver-
age of $21,000 a year are in
place, county commissioners


have agreed to support sev-
eral proposals.
One is a 10-year abate-
ment on ad valorem property
taxes.
The second is county
support for bringing the re-
quired water supply needed
primarily for fire suppression
- and a paved road off Indus-
trial Road to the site.
A road currently exists,
but is comprised of shells
and will require paving.
Finally, Raffield asked
commissioners to support
the efforts of the county Eco-
nomic Development Council
to pursue an industrial rev-
enue bond which would be


healthy Dozen' List


have long-term respiratory
consequences like impaired
lung growth, chronic cough-
ing and wheezing. Diseases
of the respiratory system
(aggravated by second-hand
smoke) are the leading causes
of child hospitalization and
one of the leading causes of
toddler doctor visits. Also,
smoking kills half of all life-
time smokers, costing them
more than twelve years of
their life.
4. Give positive feed-
back. Praise good behavior
and accomplishments. Hug,
talk, read, explore, and play
together. This also begins
to ensure a healthy bond
between parent and child.
Also, when choosing a care-
giver, discuss their attitudes
about discipline and be sure
that they agree with your
point of view.
5. Always use a car safe-
ty seat. Be sure your child
rides in an age- and weight-
appropriate child safety seat,
correctly installed in the back
seat, on every trip. If you
have any questions about
how to install your child safe-
ty seat, many local fire and
police departments will help
you. www.cdc.gov/ncipc/
factsheets/childpas.htm
6. Safety-proof your
house. To prevent accidental
poisoning, move all medica-
tions and cleaning products
to high shelves. To prevent
burns, set the temperature
of your hot water heater to
120 degrees Fahrenheit,
never leave cups of hot liquid
on tables or counter edges,
and never carry hot liquids
or food while holding your
child. To prevent choking,
be sure that any toys your
child plays with do not have
parts that are small enough
to choke on. You can test
any toy by simply dropping it
through a paper towel roll. If
it goes through, the piece is
too small and could become
a choking hazard. Do not
give toddlers under age two
foods that may cause chok-
ing, like hard candy, large
pieces of raw vegetables or


fruit, or tough meat. To pre-
vent drowning, install a toilet
lid lock on every toilet in the
home. Drowning can happen
in less than a couple of inch-
es of water, www.hhs.gov/
safety/index. shtml#injury
7. Never leave your tod-
dler unattended. As a child
grows, so does his or her nat-
ural curiosity to explore. It
just takes a few seconds for
an inquisitive toddler to get
into a dangerous situation.
8. Make sure your child
has a primary health pro-
vider. Prevention is the key
to a healthy childhood. So
make sure that your child
has a primary health pro-
vider, such as a pediatrician
or family practitioner, who
knows your child before your
child has an illness, injury,
or developmental delay that
requires medical attention.
9. Fully immunize your
child. Make sure your child
gets all immunizations on
time. Immunizations have
prevented death and dis-
ease for millions of children
throughout the United States
and the rest of the world.
Talk with your child's pri-
mary health provider" about
keeping up to date on all
vaccinations. www.cdc.gov/
nip/recs/child-schedule.htm
10. Learn child first aid
and CPR. Be prepared. Know
hot to call for help, including
poison control. The national
toll-free line for poison con-
trol is 1-800-222-1222. Also,
learn first aid and CPR. We
hope you will never have to
use these skills. But if you
do, the life you save could be
your child's. www.nlm.nih.
gov/medlineplus/firstaid.
html
11. Practice prevention
and safety. Teach your child
safety tips, including always
swimming with a buddy, and
wearing a bicycle helmet.
Teach your child about sun
safety, including wearing a
hat outdoors and frequently
applying SPF 30 sunscreen.
Also, a growing child will
come into potentially danger-
ous situations or may become


separated from a parent or
caregiver. Be sure your old-
er toddler knows his or her
name, parents' names, and
phone number. Help him or
her to recognize police and
fire officials as trusted indi-
viduals, while raising caution
to other strangers. Get your
child's fingerprints taken and
keep a recent photograph in
your wallet.
12. Have fun. Hug, talk,
read, explore and play to-
gether. Parenting is the most
difficult job in the world. As
much as you love your child,
it can be stressful to be a
parent. Be patient, manage
your stress and ask for help.
All parents sometimes feel
overwhelmed and frustrated
as they tackle the challenges
involved with parenting. If
you feel so stressed that you
feel unable to cope with the
demands of parenting, get
help.

During a special meeting
on Monday, commissioners
unanimously agreed to sup-
port each request, none of
which carries an obligation
or cost to the county.
"This will be a good op-
portunity for Raffield Fisher-
ies and Gulf County," Raf-
field said.
The second reason for
relocating the fisheries busi-
ness, Raffield said, was to
increase efficiency in produc-
tion levels.
"We want to get the fish
house in one building instead
of five," he said. "But that will


be some time in the future."
Raffield said he also
wanted to protect his busi-
ness against increased prop-
erty taxes.
Unlike homestead ex-
emption for Florida residents
which caps property taxes
at three percent, there is
no protection against rising
property taxes for commer-
cial industries.

Question:
If swimmers get eye burn and the pool has a "Chlorine" odor,
have I added too much chlorine?
Answer:
No, these signs indicate a need for more chlorine (a shock
treatment)... not less. Free Chlorine is odorless!
Shock Treatment:
At times, perspiration, body oils and other contaminants will
eventually accumulate in your pool. These contamination reduce
the effectiveness of the chlorine. Other signs of this contamina-
tion are strong odors, eye burn, skin irritation and dull or cloudy
water. This condition may arise after a week of normal use, or
Immediately after an unusually large number of swimmers, heavy
rains, or heat waves. To eliminate the contaminants and revitalize
the chlorine, a process known as "Shock Treatment" Is required.


Super Shock-Itt:

The Good Doctor


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
When Albert L. Ward
first arrived in Port St. Joe in
1938, he opened a doctor's
office in the community sur-
rounding Kenny's Mill, a lum-
ber company once located on
Industrial Road.
In a city that would wel-
come its first municipal hos-
pital five years later, Ward's
reach would soon extend
beyond Industrial Road and
into the homes of grateful
Port St. Joe residents.
"He was a very, very good
doctor, very conscientious,"
remembered his widow,
Monica Stone, who recently
made a donation to the Gulf
County Health Department
in her late husband's name.
"People today still talk about
the things he did for them."
The Tulane Medical
School graduate arrived in
Port St. Joe fresh from his
residency at Pensacola's Sa-
cred Heart Hospital, where
he met Stone, a registered
nurse.


After spending some time
at the mill site, Ward relocat-
ed his office to a room in the
back of Buzzett's Drug Store
on Reid Avenue.
From his first day in
town, Ward was busily en-
gaged in all manner of health-
related duties. He performed
tonsillectomies and hysterec-
tomies, set bones and deliv-
ered babies.
"I guess he did everything
that came along, except ma-
jor surgeries," remembered
Stone.
Stone helped out in the
office and frequently accom-
panied her husband on home
deliveries up until the time
Ward hired his own nurse,
a decision prompted by the
birth of the couple's three
daughters, Brenda, Bobbie
and Betty.
When the Municipal
Hospital opened its doors to
the public on Nov. 12, 1943,
Ward served on the board,
and made use of the hospi-
tal's then state-of-the-art fa-
cilities during medical proce-


dures.
Appointed to the Florida
State Board of Health, Ward
was instrumental in bring-
ing a health clinic to Port St.
Joe.
He devoted a good deal of
time to treating the commu-
nity's indigent residents at
the clinic's office, located in
a brick building on the cor-
ner of Long Avenue and 3rd
Street.
"Daddy did a lot of that in
his office, too," remembered
his daughter, Brenda Ward.
In lieu of payment, some of
Ward's patients paid him in
fish, vegetables or game.
Needing some help in
his growing practice, Ward
recruited Emory University
graduates Wayne and Joe
Hendrix, and opened the
Ward Clinic on the corner of
4th Street and Williams Av-
enue.
Ward continued to serve
the community's needs, nev-
er refusing a call and keeping
long hours at his practice.
Stone frequently carried

i; Ward. Back row: brother, George Ward; wife, Monica Ward (Stone); brother, Conley Ward; sister, Mar-
jorie Ward Gaines and brother, Massey Ward.


Dr. Albert L. Ward served the Port St. Joe community for 17 ye


a plate to the clinic to ensure
that her husband ate lunch.
"I would say, 'Can't you
come home for lunch?"' Re-
membered Stone. "And he
would say, 'Not if I have an
office full of people waiting to
see me."'
When he was not toil-
ing at the clinic, Ward was
outdoors. He usually took
Thursday off to hunt and
fish.
After a Dead Lakes fish-
ing trip on Thursday, March
27, 1955, Ward returned
home and told his wife that
he wasn't feeling well.
That night, he suffered
a massive heart attack and
died at the age of 44.
Brenda Ward, who'd
turned 11 years old only days
before, called her father's
death "a tremendous loss for
all of us."
The community joined
Ward's family in their grief.


"I think it was the first fu-
neral that most of my friends
remember, because every-
body went," said Ward, add-
ing that her father delivered
most of her childhood pals.
Wayne Hendrix's daugh-
ter, Holly Jimison, said her
father idolized Ward, and the
man who rarely cried shed a
tear when he learned of his
partner's death.
"He said, 'He lived more
in 44 years than anyone else
I've ever seen," Jimison re-
called.
In 1956, the health clinic
was rededicated The Albert L.
Ward Health Center. Several


ars before his death in 1955.
of Ward's family members,
including his mother, Ella
Ward, attended the ceremo-
ny.
Stone remembered her
late husband as a wonderful
doctor possessed of a great
spirit.
"Medicine was his life,
but he enjoyed living," said
Stone.
Brenda Ward described
her father as "very civic
minded and people minded."
"He just helped anyone
at any time, in any way that
he could not just medically,
but in any other way."

anniversary of the oldest
known celebration commem-
orating the ending of slavery
in the United States.
Dannie Bolden, chair-
man of the Gulf County
Emancipation (Juneteenth)
Day Celebration Committee,
said before returning home
to Port St. Joe recently, he
celebrated Juneteenth every
year he lived in Anchorage,
Alaska.
"This event focuses on
educating about the past so
we can move forward toward
a positive future," Bolden
said.
Bolden agreed with one of
his fellow organizers, Pastor
David Woods, Jr., that heal-
ing will also be a primary
focus of the weekend's activi-


ties.
Woods, pastor at the
Port St. Joe Church of God in
Christ, said one of the major
reasons he became involved
in helping organize the event
in Gulf County was to help
try to heal the wounds of
the past for the people in his
community.
"Healing the wounds of
the past will help us move
toward a positive direction of
where we want to go in the
future," Woods said.
Bolden agreed that
wounds of the recent past,
like the closure of the St.
Joe Company Paper Mill, are
injuries the community is
still working to overcome.
With the impending pos-
sibility of people, homes and
neighborhoods in North Port
St. Joe facing displacement,
Bolden said the focus on heal-
ing during the "Juneteenth"
celebration is vital.
"I'm excited about the
ministry being involved in
this event so we can reach
out to all citizens of this com-
munity," he added.
Damon McNair, for-
mer Port St. Joe city com-
missioner, emphasized the
importance of educating the
African-American commu-
nity in Port St. Joe as well
as surrounding areas about
their past.
"Americans celebrate
July 4 and Juneteenth is our
Independence Day," McNair
said.
Organizers for the pre-


mier Juneteenth Celebration
include Bolden, Woods,
McNair, Dr. David Langston,
Mr. Andrew Gainer, Pastor
Charles Gathers, Ms. Jamie
Bolden, Ms. Iris Gathers, Mr.
Cory Ash and Pastor Jimmie
Williams.
A History of the Event
Juneteenth or June
19, 1865, is considered the
date when the last slaves in
America were freed. Although
the rumors of freedom were
widespread prior to this,
actual emancipation did not
come until Major General
Gordon Granger rode into
Galveston, Texas and issued
General Order Number
3, on June 19. The order
was issued almost two and
a half years after President
Abraham Lincoln signed the
Emancipation Proclamation
on January 1, 1863.
The Order, read by
General Granger on that
monumental day, said:
"The people of Texas are
informed that in accordance
with a Proclamation from
the Executive of the United
States, all slaves are free.
This involves an absolute
equality of rights and rights
of property between former
masters and slaves, and the
connection heretofore existing
between them becomes that
between employer and free
laborer."
Recounting the memories
of that historic day in June
of 1865 and the celebrations
following the announcement


4 X~A~ Awl

-A


would serve as motivation
and release from the growing
pressures encountered by
freed slaves as they settled
into their new territories.
The celebration of June
19 was coined "Juneteenth"
and grew continuously each
year. It was a time for reas-
suring each other, for praying
and for gathering together.
Juneteenth, through
its 140 years of existence,
has, almost always focused
on education and improve-
ment. Guest speakers were
often invited to participate
and offer words of inspira-
tion and consolation.
Prayer services have
always been a major part of
the celebrations as well.
Food was always syn-
onymous with and plentiful
and during these celebra-
tions throughout the years.
This year's Gulf
County Emancipation Day
Celebration Committee is
building on the traditions of
their ancestors.
On Friday, June 24
beginning at 6 p.m., there
will be an opening reception
with food provided by Paul
Gant's Barbeque'.
Deon Long will be the
guest speaker following the
opening reception. With
degrees from the University
of Florida, University of
Michigan School of Law,


Long runs his own law
firm, Ometrius D. Long and
Associates, P.A. in Winter
Park. He specializes in
municipal finance, corpo-
rate litigation and business
transactions. Long currently
serves as Special Counsel for
the City of Port St. Joe Port
Authority.
Following Long's presen-
tation will be a talent show
and a teen dance with music
provided by a disc jockey.
On Saturday, June 25,
fare will be provided by Dr.

throughout the day. Also, as
a part of Saturday's event,
there will be prize drawings,
gospel concerts and poetry

Two Sharks Top Field at Gators' Team Camp


by David Adlerstein
and Tim Croft
Florida Freedom Newspapers
The Port St. Joe and
Apalachicola varsity boys
basketball squads made a
couple things clear last week-
end in Gainesville.
One is that two public
high schools from the Pan-
handle can travel down to
University of Florida head
coach Billy Donovan's high-
profile team basketball camp
- in separate caravans of
course and dominate the
field of small school varsity
programs, many of which are
private.
The other is that you can
expect this pair of sharks to
gnash teeth seriously when
hoop season rolls around
this winter.
After winning all six of
their games during the first
two days of camp, June 17
and 18 at the University of
Florida, Port St. Joe earned
the top seed in Sunday's
tournament.
"We are 11-2 this sum-
mer and we were the only un-
defeated team going into the
playoffs," said Port St. Joe
coach Derek Kurnitsky.
"Little old Port St. Joe.
We played great."
Apalachicola, with a full
squad of 14' players, won
three games Friday but lost
once on Saturday, to St. Au-
gustine's St. Joseph Acad-
emy, to post a record of 5-
1 and earn a second seed in


Sunday's tourney.
After both teams won
all three of their early round
games Sunday morning, the
championship came down
to a 2:30 p.m. match-up be-
tween cross-county rivals.
"Port St. Joe came out
leading 18-6 to start the
game," said Apalachicola
coach Joe Hayes. "We were
very flat and Port St. Joe
came out with intensity and
enthusiasm."
Kurnitsky noted that the
championship game came
just 45 minutes after Port
St. Joe had overcome a five-
point deficit to beat Ocala
Shores Christian by 11 in the
semifinals and that his team
simply ran out of gas in the
second half.
"They (Apalachicola) just
got the momentum and they
rolled with it," Kurnitsky
said. "We just hit a wall."
Cutting the deficit to
seven points at the half,
Apalachicola outscored Port
St. Joe by 10 in the third
quarter to lead by three going
into the fourth.
"We pretty much domi-
nated in the second half,"
said Hayes, whose squad
earned the camp's trophy by
virtue of a 63-53 win over
Port. St. Joe.
"To win it is huge," said
Hayes. "To beat Port St. Joe
is a big win for these kids but
it's also a huge win for me to
be able to watch the younger
kids and evaluate who can do

what and what they can't do.
"The most important
part of the camp is getting to
evaluate your team in game
situations," he said.
Kurnitsky agreed, saying
the atmosphere of the camp
was a key reason he chose to
take his team to the Univer-
sity of Florida camp.
"At the camp the compe-
tition is great and they play
real games; with a real game
clock and real referees," Kur-
nitsky said.
"We were a little bummed
out to lose. But I think some-
thing like that (reaching the
final) helps the kids' confi-
dence. It fired them up so
much they wanted to play
in another tournament this
weekend. So we are playing
in a tournament at Chipola
this weekend."
In part, what also fired
them up were some words


of solace from Donovan, who
consoled the team after the
game, noting he'd lost several
big games himself, including
a national title game.
"He said a really neat
thing to them," Kurnitsky
said. 'You must have done
something right to get here.'
That was neat.
"And when was the last
time Billy Donovan watched
Apalachicola and Port St. Joe
play. I'd say probably never.
That was pretty cool."
Port St. Joe loses just
two seniors from last year's
squad and Kurnitsky brought
up a couple of players from
last year's jayvee team to play
this summer. The team has
been playing in the Marianna
summer league. The Sharks
lost their first game to Bay
and reeled off 11 straight
before falling on Sunday to
Apalachicola.

with intensity and purpose.

more for needy children and
senior citizens. Food baskets
and Christmas dinners are

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
cash prizes."

held in St. Joseph Bay and
the surrounding waters.

though. I know these guys,
and I know that Carrabelle
fishermen are the best."

By Blair Shiver
Star Staff Writer
Larry White said he's
never had a day that he
awoke and dreaded going to
work.
When he retires from his
position as Superintendent of
Commerce City (Ga.) Schools
at the end of this month, he
will continue doing what he
loves as the new principal at
Wewahitchka High School.
"He's only 53, but he's
go the energy of a first-year
principal," said Gulf County
School Superintendent Tim
Wilder.
After Terry Linton retired
from the principal's position
at Wewahitchka High School
in April, the school board
began a six-week intensive
search across the southeast
for his replacement.
Wilder said when he
first saw White's name in
the eight to 10 highly quali-
fied applicants, he "thought
it was too good to be true."
"He was former super-
intendent, a principal at
the largest school system in
Georgia," Wilder said. "He's
going to be a great fit."
White said he was look-
ing forward "to getting back
to the building level."
For the past eight
years, he has served as the
Superintendent of Commerce
City Schools in Commerce,
Georgia.
His experience with sep-
arate city and county school
systems provides White an
authoritative voice on the
discussion of school con-
solidation, an issue that's


been tossed around in Gulf
County.
As the principal at the
largest comprehensive high
school in Griffin, Ga., White
said there were both advan-
tages and disadvantages to a
consolidated school system.
At Griffin High School,
one of the largest in the
state, White said there were
an array of course offerings
not available at neighboring
smaller schools. During his
tenure, the school offered 11
sections of Latin alone.
The list of disadvantages
according to White was much
longer.
White said the drop-out
rate is increased in a larger
school setting, and national
trends are beginning to shy
away from larger schools in
favor of more neighborhood-
oriented operations.

"There's a great sense of
pride and the high school is
the center of this community,"
White said. "Consolidation
would take that identity away
from the community."
He added that though
there are usually fewer
course offerings in a small-
er school setting, a strong
core of faculty usually meant
more individual attention for
students.
White's 30-year career
in education began after
he obtained a Bachelor of
Science degree in Physical
Education from the University
of Georgia.
He took a teaching and
coaching position at Cedar
Shoals High School in Clarke
County.
His teaching experience
spans the spectrum from
driver's education to biology.

After relocating to Griffin
in the Spalding County School

aged by the superintendent
to go back to school. White
took his advice and went back
to Athens for his Master's

Supervision from UGA.
)White then moved to
Spalding County to take an
assistant principal position.
He rose through the ranks

Hurricane History


worked with, "Hurricane's
a'comin this year." Erin came
flirting by and went ashore
at Pensacola on August 3.
A father and his 9-year-old
daughter staying on the Pen-
insula disappeared on a raft;
sucked offshore by Erin's
northerly winds that preced-
ed the storm. I told the ladies,
"Erin was not the one."


Finally, in October, the
mother of hurricanes ap-
peared. She formed in the
Bay of Campeche and by
early morning of October 4
her winds were 150 mph and
her barometric pressure was
lower that Andrew's had ever
been. She was headed toward
the Panhandle and many
people's blood was running


a little cold. Opal was upon
us. Pam decided to leave, but;
after realizing that she may'
get only as far as Overstreet,
due to the traffic, she stayed.
Luckily, due to a shot of cool
air and cooler Gulf water,
Opal came ashore at Navarre
as a Cat. 3. Because she was
so large, it was the storm
tides and surge that did so
much local damage. After
three close storms at 10 year
intervals, I began to wonder
if there could be a pattern for
Panhandle hurricanes.
There is an excellent
book in the Gulf County Li-
brary; Florida's Hurricane
History by Jay Barnes. It is
my source for the information
used in this article and for
the storm tracks. The earlier
storm tracks will always be a
mystery because hardly any-
one lived in the Panhandle
until we became a territory in
1821. Once people began to

settle here, then storms be-
came recorded.
If there is a 10 year "cy-
cle" it begins in 1886. For the
next 60 years there is a hur-
ricane close enough or strong
enough to affect where we
live occurring on a year that
ends with a 6. It almost be-
gins in 1877 when one hits
Cape San Blas head-on, but
it is a year off.
The "6" storms end with
Flossy at Fort Walton in
1956. Nature gave the cycle a
break in 1946. After another
break, the "5" cycle begins in
1975.
Although hurricanes can
come ashore on any year
(minimal storm Agnes came
ashore on the Cape in 1972
and went on to become a
great killer hurricane as it
flooded the East Coast. 129


people died; most by drown-
ing.) There does seem to be
some credence to the 10 year
cycle. While the best meteo-
rologists in the world cannot
predict when or where the
big one will hit, my bookie
informs me the numbers
point to a good bet for a 2005
Panhandle Hurricane. I hope
he's wrong as we live just a
few hundred yards from the
Gulf on St. Joe Beach.
Some personal observa-
tions from over 40 years of
beach driving and exploring
barrier islands from Shell Is-
land to Dog Island by boat:
Certain agencies or per-
sons will preach the line of
defense that dunes provide.
Dunes against a major hur-
ricane is like shooting arrows
at a tank; it's a defense, but
a poor one. I think Ivan will
back me up on this one.
Sand fences. Don't waste
your money. They may build

county will be able to length-
en the berms, thus provid-
ing additional protection this
hurricane season.
However, with waves
already lapping at the board-
walk steps of several Cape
San Blas homes, Charlie
Weston, president of the
South Gulf County Taxpayers
Association, said he was dis-
appointed it has, taken this
long'ft'b8giri e iegficyT berifi'
construction on 'th beach.
Weston said he would,
"like to see a higher sense
of urgency on the county's
part," since state and federal
monies had been provided
for the project.
"The economic engine for
the county is closely tied to
what goes on the beaches,"
Weston said. "If the beaches
go away, so does the eco-
-.. nomic engine of the county."
Nelson also expressed
safety concerns for vacation-
ers on the beach during the
construction.
"These people paid a
couple thousand dollars to
come here for a week and
there will be big dump trucks
driving where they want their
kids to play," he said.
Denise Tarpley, property
manager at Cape San Blas
Vacation Rentals, said with
berm construction slated to
begin in the height of tourist
season, "people are going to
have a fit."
"It needs to be done,
but people won't like it," she
added. "If a washing machine
is broken (in their rental),
they'll do without it. People
want to be left alone (when


\ .~


on vacation)."
Nelson added that some
popular areas of Cape San
Blas look more like Panama
City Beach, "not because
of the number of people,
but because of the limited
amount of beach."
That "limited amount of
beach" has already greatly
affected turtle populations
on the Cape, crippling their
ability to nest.
Martha Maglothin of
the Gulf Coast Conservation
Association and local turtle
patrol said with only 13 nests
thus far this year, the popu-
lation was 60 percent below
their normal production for
this time of the year.
The turtle patrol has
been working closely with
county officials to relocate
as many nests as possible
before construction begins.
Maglothin said half of the
nests she and the patrol have
moved have been in the path
of the berms.
. "They keep saying their
going to build these berms
so many feet in front of the
dune line and there's really
not one," Maglothin said.
"Time will tell," she con-
cluded.
Several sections of the
beach on Cape. San Blas,
already difficult to pass
have been rendered impass-
able after Arlene's minimal
impact.

"There are just some places

Rehabbing A Beauty


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
The princess has awoken
from her extended snooze.
The keepers' quar-
ters at the Cape San Bias
Lighthouse which have affec-
tionately become known as
"Sleeping Beauty" has, as one
recent visitor noted, found
her prince.
He arrived in the form of
contractors, New Millenium
Construction Inc. out of
Crestview, who are putting
the finishing touches on
the renovation of the home,
which, just a few months
ago, could be charitably
described as ramshackle.
Resembling an even
snazzier version of her sis-
ter keepers' quarters just to
the north, "Sleeping Beauty"
is now, well, beautiful, and
nearly ready for the estab-
lishment of a museum com-
memorating maritime life
and the folks who made the
Cape San Bias Lighthouse
grounds home.
"We think we are so
much further along" toward
the goal of creating a muse-
um/park out of the light-
house grounds, said Betty
McNeill of the St. Joseph


Historical Society, which has
been the driving force behind
the project.
The renovation of
"Sleeping Beauty", made
possible through a state his-
torical preservation grant,
completes a major step in
process.
"They did a great job,"
McNeill added.
There remain two rooms,
once bedrooms, on the sec-
ond floor which should be
completed in the next three
months, but the bulk of the
work has been done, as evi-
denced by a recent walk-
through.
The renovation combined
history and modern touches,
as contractors attempted to
retain as much of the origi-
nal as possible, compliment-
ed by new materials shaped
to match the old.
"They salvaged every-
thing they could," said Larry
Wells, the county's emergen-
cy manager who has aided
the Historical Society with
grant writing, working with
the contractor and the like.
For instance, the rail-
ing along the stairs heading
to the second floor is the
original wood, as is much of


the flooring. A contribution
of some 1,200 board feet of
pine bead board from local
resident Earl Miller allowed
the contractor to essentially
recreate the original walls
- an inch and a quarter thick


upon initial construction in
the main rooms downstairs.
The lighthouse project
- which had been ranked
in the top 10 by a state his-
torical preservation advisory
panel two years ago was


ranked No. 49 this past year,
with the state legislature
deciding to fund only the top
47, leaving the lighthouse
out of the money.

"We've already filed for
next year," said Charlotte
Pierce from the Historical
Society.
The society is seeking a
grant of $380,000 to begin
work on the rehabilitation of
the lighthouse itself. Ranking
for that grant application will
come in the fall, with the
dollars dependent on the
actions of state lawmakers.
next spring.
That will be matched by
$208,000 from the U.S. Air
Force, which is leasing the
grounds to the county, which
will be in the form of lead
abatement of the soil sur-
rounding the lighthouse.
The lighthouse itself will
also have to undergo work
to remove any remaining
lead, a primary ingredient in
the paint and weather-coat-

ing put on the lighthouse
through the years.
"We are still in need of
funds," McNeill said, noting
the lighthouse project contin-
ues as a fund-raising priority
for the Historical Society.
While awaiting more
funding, the goal, once the
rehabilitation of "Sleeping
Beauty" is completed, is to
open it and the other keep-
ers' quarters, renovated
years before by the Air Force,
to the public.
"We plan to have it acces-
sible to the public for tours,"
Pierce said. "We're talking
about creating a museum"
which would document the
lives of the lighthouse keep-
ers.
The lighthouse dates to
1885; the existing keepers'
quarters to 1917.


Charlotte Pierce, Larry Wells and Betty McNeill (right) from the St. Joseph Historic Society and members of Pierce's family enjoyed
the sea breezes on the front porch of the newly-refurbished keepers' quarters on the grounds of the Cape San Bias Lighthouse. The
renovation of "Sleeping Beauty" should be completed in the next few months.


Left: The original stairway
railing was salvaged as part
of the restoration of "Sleeping
Beauty" the past few months.
Right: The view from the
side porch was spectacular on
a recent sunny morning. The St.
Joseph Historic Society, which
is still seeking funding for
the lighthouse museum/park
project has applied for anoth-
er state historic preservation
grant, which will be ranked by
an advisory panel in the fall.


DENTAL NEWS FROM THE OFFICE OF

FRANK D. MAY, DMD, PA

TEETHING
The process of teeth emerging through the gums is called teething. It usually begins at six
months and continues until the last wisdom tooth erupts. It is a time associated with discomfort
for a baby, but despite crying, pain is not sever and the whole process is normal.
To relieve the discomfort, it is helpful to give the child things to chew on such as teething
rings and biscuits. This actually aids the normal eruption of the teeth. The pain, redness and
occasionally fever is not caused by infection, but just by local irritation and inflammation. There
is also an accompanying histamine response which causes the child to exhibit symptoms which
are similar to a cold. It is usually unwise to cut the gum pad to permit eruption of these teeth.
If the teeth are not absolutely ready to "pop" them the incised area heals with a denser, more
Sfibrous tissue extending the teething period and making it even more difficult for the tooth to
erupt.
Come visit our new state of the art facility.

to Perform


at July 4 Celebration
On May 12, Lisa and Ma-
lia Faipea began their hula
classes. Although they were
enthusiastic, they didn't ex-
pect a real big turnout. By
June 1, they were making
plans to have the students
perform at the July 4th Cel-
ebration.
"We neyer expected the
interest to be as great as it
is," Lisa said. "The students
seem to really love learning
to hula dance."
Hula is riot as easy as it
looks. It takes learning the
foot work and then the hands.
Then you have to put it to-
gether. The students have an
incredible determination and
made the decision on their
own to perform July 4.
"They haven't, had a lot
of time to perfect the dances


but I am proud of what they The Kapakai Nalo Canoe Club's 45-toot canoe, scheduled to
have accomplished," Malia arrive in Port St. Joe on June 30, will resemble the canoe Lisa

said. off Makaha Beach, Hawaii.


Lisa and Malia said after
the July 4th performance,
they will be continuing class-
es. There is still much to learn
and if the students want to
continue dancing, they will
be there to teach them even
into the fall.
The hula classes are be-
ing held at the Driftwood Inn
thanks to the generosity ,of
Peggy and Shawna Wood.
Lisa and Malia encour-.
age everyone to join them as
they continue to get new stu-
dents each week. They will
continue to work together to
teach the routines.
For more information,
please call Lisa or Malia at
227-7014.

Should Prepare Financial Survival Kits


With tropical storm Ar-
lene's recent visit came the
realization for most folks that
hurricane season has truly
arrived. Therefore, folks
in our area need to be sure
they're prepared financially
in case a storm approaches
and they are forced to leave
their homes on short notice.
Many people prepare
.for .the hurricane season by
gathering', up needed sup-
plies, planning an evacuation
route, even tentatively decid-
,ing on where they will stay.
However, few families have
plans to ensure' that impor-
tant papers are secure and
that access to cash to live on
is available. Being prepared
will help you have everything
in hand.while others are run-
ning around in a panic.
If possible, one should
consider sticking back suf-
ficient cash to cover several
days of basic expenses. .If
there is no electricity due to
storm damage you will not
be able to access automated
teller machines for day-to-
day cash needs and may not


be able to use a charge card.
You want make sure that you
have small denominations of
cash available, like $20s, due
to the fact that it can be hard
to change larger bills.
Just as important is for
people to devote some time
getting together copies of key
financial documents. A new
publication "Disasters and
Financial Planning -- A Guide
for Preparedness" can assist
you with this endeavor. This
guide, which was prepared
by the American Institute of
Certified Public Accountants
and the American Red Cross,
includes a list of documents
that are best stored in a safe
deposit box and a list of oth-
ers that should be included
in a disaster kit. The booklet
can be obtained from local
Red Cross chapters and is
also available online at www.
redcross.org/financialplan-
ning.
According to the guide,
documents to leave in safe
deposit boxes include birth,
marriage and death certifi-
cates; divorce and child cus-


tody papers; military records;
passports; mortgages and
property deeds; car titles;
stock and bond certificates;
and copies of wills and pow-
ers of attorney.
Among the documents a
family should keep handy if
it needs to evacuate include:
copies of recent tax returns;
copies of important medical
information, including health
insurance card and prescrip-
tions; an inventory of the
family's possessions; home
improvement records; recent
checking, savings and invest-
ment account statements; re-
tirement account statements;
credit card records; a list of
emergency contacts, includ-
ing doctors and family mem-
bers; safe deposit box infor-
mation, including location,
list of contents and key.

The day He died
for you and me.
I look at my past,
and just can't see,
Why he'd die for
a sinner like me.
I first met Jesus
as a teenage kid,
I asked Him to
save me and this He
did.
Later, I got off
track as many people
do,
I lived a lot for

Gardening at this time of

mosquitoes and the blister-

hire someone to do what we
are perfectly capable of do-

are going to grow, and only

more than 20 minutes in the
midday sun is a private joke.
There's an upside to the
heat. Big, thick thunder-
clouds form when the air is
so saturated, and erupt with
thunder and lightning and
rain. Afterwards everything
outside looks cleaner and
brighter. The leaves on the
trees get bigger and the pe-
rennials grow and bloom a
little more.

Sam Amerson Jr., played
in the National All-Star
i.'' ;^ + Football Game on Saturday
June 4th in Jacksonville,
Florida.
', This game is for the top
S'football players to be scout-
ed for colleges around the
United States.
There were several play-
ers from all over Florida,
Georgia, Alabama and Loui-
siana.
SThe guys went through
intensive training or two
Says then were split into
two teams, where Sam
played on the Blue Team.
He assisted in several.tackles; one leading into a
defensive touch down and won the game 16-10.
Sam has been accepted with a football scholarship
to Culver Stockton in Missouri.

time, summer, made entirely
worthwhile by the rustling
of palm branches, the 'clar-

heavy sweet scent of garde-
nias, and especially by, the
big, thick thunderclouds that
* burst and cool us off, if only
for a little while.


I spent a memorable part of,
my childhood would say "Yep,
that was a real bad storm we
had last night. Sure is go-
ing to make the corn grow."
I would pay attention, and
sure enough the corn would
grow about a foot that week.
I knew that rain made
plants grow, but the stormy
weather made them grow like
wild. I figured it had to do
with the thunder. As I got
a little older and thought
I knew a little more about
the universe, I decided that
plant growth was somehow
inspired by vibration.
SCome to find out it, io'
lightning that stimulates the
growth.. Lightning heats the
nitrogen in the air 'and' turns
it into nitrogen oxide com-
pounds. The nitrogen oxide is
usable by the plants whereas
the nitrogen in the air is not.
Rain Washes the nitrogen ox-
ide into the soil, and plants
are fertilized by the rainwa-
ter. That information, came
by way of "Miss Grow It All,"
a weekly columnist, for the.
Tallahassee Democrat, so,
thank you, m'am, for finally
explaining it to me.
That helps explain why
Florida, the lightning capi-
tal of the world, is such a
lush tropical paradise. It.

UNLEASH YOUR
POTENTIAL!
Everyone dreams of buy-
ing the perfect home. And
why not? You'll never find
what you want if you don't
first know what you want
You'll also never find your
dream home if you insist on
living in a dream world. In
other words, don't be unreal-
istic or unwilling to compro-
mise.
All homes even newly
built ones require some
work to make them perfect for
you. There are several ways to
update that make a dramatic
difference when you've found
a home in the right location at
the right price. An open mind
helps you make your decision
by allowing more possibilities.
You may not find all the
right criteria price, condition
and location in one single
home. Compromising on any

Creating Dreams in Paradise


By Dwan G. Hightower
I felt as though I had
walked into that one slice
of paradise that everyone
searches for when I entered
the enclave of Kristin Ander-
son. What a place to be in-
spired to create, dream and
work along with Mother Na-
ture. Kristin Anderson is a
world-known jeweler with in-
credible style and grace. Not
only is each piece magnifi-
cent but it makes the wearer
aware of the world around
them. Kristin states, "Jewel-
ry has many functions in our
lives: adornment, display, re-
minder, and signal. Beautiful
jewelry, finely made, connects
you to history, the maker,
the giver, to ideas and beliefs
that you want to have grow
in your life. I mean for my
works to be of use to people
in their life journeys. Every
piece I make is an ambassa-
dor for my belief in quality of
materials, design and crafts-
manship. The greatest com-
pliment that a piece of mine
has ever received was from a
professional archeologist. He
picked up one of my works
and said, "Wowl Someday,
when someone digs this -p,
it will become a national
treasure."
I felt the same way as I
looked at each piece of jew-
elry in her showcase and
discussed the process where
she is commissioned for wed-


ding rings, other rings or
necklaces and bracelets. The
explanation of the beauti-
ful necklace she wears con-
stantly, her own Talisman
from the 70's, where the im-
agery came from a dream. A
dream of a troubled state of
mind when a rose bush was
giving in to the cold dry wind
blowing off all the petals and
looked dead, but the roots
were quietly sending down to
the endless source of water,
God, and the bush blooms
regardless of the cold dry
wind. The necklaceis a dia-
mond surrounded by enamel
with the vines rushing down
to the blue water to give it
life. Kristin works in vitreous
transparent enamel which is
really about light. Fired over
silver or gold, it is luminous
and magical. It is paradoxi-
cally durable and fragile. It
is ideal for developing in-
tricate symbolic designs of
great personal significance in
a wearable scale.
The tools, materials, and
techniques of traditional sil-
ver and gold smithing rais-
ing, planishing, chasing, re-
pouss6, and sinking build
three-dimensional forms
in beautiful metals. Light
shimmering from chased,
hammered, and carved metal
surfaces through transpar-
ent enamel color gives mar-
velous illusionistic depth.

Tutankhamun Exhibit at Mary Brogan Museum


Tutankhamun: "Wonder-
ful Things" from the Phar-
oah's Tomb will be on view

The museum is open
Monday through Saturday

$6. Admission for students,
senior citizens and military
with ID is $3.50. Children age

um of Art and Science is lo-

building in Downtown Talla-


surfaces makes form appear,
disappear, and can even mir-
ror the viewer's face.
Her work draws on West-
ern and Eastern spiritual
traditions, Nature, Geometry,
European Medieval art, Mo-
gul paintings, and a personal
iconography developed over
many years of study.
Beautiful jewelry, finely
made, connects us with his-
tory, the maker, the giver,
and with ideas and beliefs
that we want to have grow in
our lives.
Her wedding rings and
other rings are designed with
input from the client on their
favorite loves and things in
life. From the sea, ships, dol-
phins, the stars and all cre-
ation. One set of rings were
designed for a couple with
crabs on the rings as they
had met while out crabbing.
A girl wanted to see and feel
her Christian beliefs daily so
a ring with fish, crosses and
circles of crosses were cre-
ated for her.
I was impressed with the
ring that had the captain's
tiny boat and the image of
him with a cap on and dol-
phins and the North Star to
guide him.
Kristin is inspired by the
natural world and her spiri-
tual studies. I have to agree
that her home environment
is the most lush, peaceful
setting I have ever entered.
It makes one want to sit and
rest and reflect on your life.
This local talented lady
has an impressive back-
ground with a BA in painting
from *Portland State College
in Oregon and a MFA in Art
Metal from the University of
Wisconsin. She has taught
Silversmithing at various
schools and has worked at
renowned enamellist David-
Andersen in Oslo, Norway.
She has had exhibitions of
her work held around the
country and conducted many
workshops.
In 1985 she established
Long Dream Gallery in down-
town Apalachicola, Florida
selling the works of living
American artists. In 1999
she established www.Long-
DreamGallery.com and www.
kristinworks.com where you
can admire her great work
and find out how to set up
an appointment with her to
commission her work.
I know this community
is very lucky to have such a
gifted artist and such a gra-
cious lady in our midst. She
is a source of great knowledge
and comfort and a creator of
incredible designs.


of these factors can result In a
very satisfying purchase.
Negotiation Is a normal part of
any real estate transacUon.
especially If you've found a
great home a little further out
than you planned, or a home
in need of improvements that
happens to be located in your
perfect neighborhood.
Real estate agents well
understand that communities
rely on revitalization. Buyers
willing to improve their prop-
erty keep towns and cities
thriving. Pride of ownership
helps homes in these commu-
nities gain in value, and helps
the owners gain in equity.
That is the true potential
behind creativity and compro-
mise, so don't be afraid to
explore it!

Nelson's Threats Help Maintain


Moratorium on


By Larry Lipman
With Florida's sena-
tors threatening to delay the
Senate's consideration of a
comprehensive energy bill,
key leaders in the chamber
agreed last week to resist any
effort to weaken the morato-
rium on oil and gas drilling in
waters off Florida's coast.
But Sens. Pete Domenici,
R-N.M., and Jeff Bingaman,
D-N.M., the chairman and
ranking member of the Sen-
ate Energy and Natural Re-
sources Committee, said
they would oppose efforts to
strip the bill of a proposed
inventory of all petroleum re-
sources in the nation's Outer
Continental Shelf.
Florida Sens. Bill Nelson,
a Democrat, and Mel Marti-
nez, a Republican, have said
they oppose the inventory be-
cause it could put more pres-
sure on lawmakers to allow
drilling in the eastern Gulf.
The concessions from
Domenici and Bingaman
came as the Senate began
what is expected to be two
weeks of debate on the en-
ergy bill. President Bush has
called for action on the bill to
spur domestic production of
energy resources, but Demo-
crats have argued it would do
little to reduce dependence
on foreign oil.
Meanwhile, the Senate
Finance Committee began
considering $16 billion in en-
ergy tax breaks to promote
conservation and develop al-
ternative fuels. Those propos-
als would be included in the

Child Abduction Response 0.0 REsA


Team Organizing


State Attorney Steve
Meadows hosted an organi-
zational meeting for a 14th
Circuit Child Abduction Re-
sponse Team (CART) last
week. The meeting was at-
tended by representatives of
local law enforcement agen-
cies throughout the six coun-
ties of the circuit as well as
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, Federal
Bureau of Investigation and
Department of Revenue.
A highlight of the meeting
was a presentation by Mari-
anna Police Chief Lou Rob-
erts who spoke on lessons
learned from dealing with the
recent quadruple homicide in
his city. Roberts emphasized
the necessity for coopera-
tion and pooling of resources


among several agencies.
The aim of the CART is
to provide a fast response to
a report of child abduction.
"The first hours after a child
is abducted are crucial if a
safe recovery is to be made,"
said Meadows. "Studies show
- that after just three to 24
hours, the chance that the
abduction leads to death is
74 percent."
Information was provid-
ed to the group that.there are
115,000 attempted non-fam-
ily abductions in the United
States every year. 4,600 of
those attempts are successful
and 160 end in the death of
the child. There are 354,000
family abductions yearly;
140 of those end in death of
the child.


"Those numbers are stag-
gering," said Meadows. "All
agencies must work together
to see that a child abducted
in the 14th Circuit does not
end up as a fatal statistic. We
hope to be in constant readi-
ness without having to use
the many resources of these
agencies."
Agency resources and
manpower will be made
available to the agency and
community where an abduc-
tion takes place. Members of
the CART will be given state-
wide jurisdiction to work on
abduction cases and thus
make it easier for officers to
step across county and cir-
cuit borders to any place the
investigation leads.

Port St. Joe Police

Department Report
*On June 18, Ronnie K.
Wood, age 53, of Port St.'
Joe was arrested for driving
under the influence of alco-
hol and/or drugs; Larche V.
Ware, age 22, of Port St. Joe
was arrested for trespass af-
ter warning and battery.
Many otherwise law-
abiding citizens in our com-
munity continue to view im-
paired driving as a victimless
crime. This is a misconcep-
tion. Impaired driving in not
a victimless crime! Every 32
minutes an impaired driver
randomly kills someone in
the U.S. That means you or
someone you know is equally
likely to be an innocent vic-
tim of a driver impaired by
alcohol or other drugs.
This year the chances
are even greater that you or
someone you know will be af-
fected. Alcohol-related traffic
fatalities and injuries have
been rising in Florida since
1998. Preliminary crash data
indicates that at least 1,050
people were killed in alcohol-
related crashes during 2004.
As part of the You Drink
& Drive. You Lose. Labor Day
National Crackdown, the
Port St. Joe Police Depart-
ment will be working with
other law enforcement agen-
cies in Gulf County to protect
everyone from impaired driv-
ers. From August 19 through
September 5, the Port St.
Joe Police Department will
be conducting high visibility
enforcement operations to
identify and arrest impaired
drivers.
Why have we adopted
this tough stance? We want
to save lives during the holi-
day period. There were 17
people killed in alcohol-relat-
ed crashes during the 2003
Labor Day holiday period.
This loss of life is not accept-
ablel
There will be no warn-
ings. The message is simple
- You Drink and Drive. You
Lose. Violators will lose their
licenses. In addition, the cost
of a DUI arrest can be stag-
gering- towing charges, fines,
court costs, lawyer fees, and
increased insurance rates


can add up to more than
$6,000.
Please drive responsibly
this holiday weekend. The life
you save could be your own.
Port 9t. Joe Police Depart-
ment DUI Sobriety Checks
The Port St. Joe Police
Department is committed to'
promoting safety for all citi-
zens. Port St. Joe Police De-
partment's goal is to ensure
everyone using the highway
and roadway system may do
so safely and to provide a de-
terrent for those who violate
laws. Enforcement is a tool
to facilitate the achievement
of this safety. Recognizing
that alcohol is consistently
involved in many crashes
resulting in a fatality man-
dates unwavering attention.
Reducing death and injury
associated with impaired
drivers is one of the most im-
portant objectives. The State
of Florida, Gulf County and
the City of Port St. Joe pro-
vide the roadway as a benefit
to the public at large. Accord-
ingly, these agencies seek to
safeguard all drivers through
the use of a non-intrusive
checkpoint to detect and re-
move 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 De-
partment will be conducting
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
A battery powered, chest
type- cooler has been found
and turned into the Port St.
Joe Police Department. The
cooler may be claimed by
calling 229-8265 or stopping
by the Port St. Joe Police De-

freshwater springs in the
world, Edward Ball Wakulla
Springs State Park is a natu-

to an .abundance of wildlife,
including alligators,, deer,

from 9 o'clock in the morning
till '5 o'clock in the afternoon
..had the opportunity to speak
to almost 50 local residents
who were very open about
how the area could be-better

t Among 51 surveys col-
lected we found that:
There are two licensed

In the last twelve
"months at least 34 appoint-
ments / errands were can- '
called due 'to lack of trans-
portation.
The most important
trips PSJ residents make
each week are to work /
school /'training, church /
worship, and tied for third
were medical / dental ap- "
pointments 'and shopping.'
Most PSJ residents
who, limit, their driving do so"t
because of poor weather or.
nighttime hours.
An overwhelming num-
ber of respondents indicated
that they would be willing to
pay a small fee ($1-$5 per
ride) to have more transpor-
tation options available.

CAPS, housed in Talla-
hassee's Innovation .Park,
was established at FSU in
2000 as a hub of research
and educational activities
promoting the development
of advanced electrical power
systeins for the U.S. Navy.
The center's mission is to
work with, the Navy and with
industry to develop and dem-
onstrate technologies that
will enable construction of
the next-generation, all-elec-
tric ship. The Navy also is in-
terested in research that will
lead to significant reductions
in size, weight and noise for
its ships, as well as increased
reliability and survivability.
The Office of Naval Research
has recognized CAPS' efforts
with a multi-year grant to
support the Navy's program
to fully electrify its fleet.
In addition to its work
with the Navy, CAPS was
chartered with identifying
and- pursuing "dual use"
technologies that could pro-
vide significant benefits to
commercial customers as
well. Edward Ball Wakulla
Springs State Park is one of
the first beneficiaries of such
technology.
"Because of our ongoing
research with the Navy, it was
only natural to have CAPS
and Wakulla Springs team
up on this project," said Rob
Hovsapian, CAPS spokesman
'and 'engineer oi the project.
"The park was in search of
similar modifications to its

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves
naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production,
mining, or forming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations,
urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a
health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

In our continuing efforts to maintain a safe and dependable water supply it may be necessary to make improvements In your water system. The costs of these improvements may be reflected in the rate structure.
Rate adjustments may be necessary in order to address these improvements.

Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit
all of our customers. These improvements are sometimes reflected as rate structure adjustments. Thank you for understanding.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have
undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water
from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water
Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at Lighthouse Utilities Co., Inc. would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality
of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

2004 Quality Water Report

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide
you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are commit-
ted to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from two wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is
chlorine for disinfection purposes.

The Department of Environmental Protection is in the process of conducting Source Water Assessments (SWA) for all public water systems in Florida. These assessments will identify and assess any potential sources
of contamination in the vicinity of your water supply. A SWA report for this system is available or will be by July 1, 2005 at the DEP SWAPP web site: www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact James R. Simmons @ 850.227.7427. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility.

Lighthouse Utilities Co., Inc. routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the
results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2004.

As authorized and approved by EPA, the State has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less often than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected
to vary significantly from year to year. Some of our data, though representative, is more than one year old. .

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

.Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.

Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial con-
taminants.

Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the ose of disin-
fectants to control microbial contaminants.

Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.

"ND' means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.

Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.

Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.

Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

Gulf Area
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 insurance, 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

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 and 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
another before they actually
meet for the first time.
