County Takes Another Stab at County-Wide


~j


By Blair Shiver
Star Staff Writer
The Gulf County Board of County
Commission voted again, for the third time
in a few months, on Tuesday night to return
to county-wide voting.
Prompting yet another vote on the issue
was Commissioner Bill Williams' proposal
for a hybrid voting district in which District
4, Chairman Nathan Peter's district, would
remain a single-member district and the
remainder of the county would return to at-
large voting.
When the floor was opened for public
comment, the packed room heard first from
Danny Clayton of Wewahitchka, who told
commissioners that if the proposal passed,
the result would be a division of the county.
I Citing a recent two-part story in The Star
on the relocation of the county courthouse
some 40 years ago, Commissioner Billy
Traylor said, "We're getting into a north-
south issue like you've never seen," assuring
"more hell than you've ever seen" if the
hybrid structure passed.
Williams, who ran opposed to the 4-1
hybrid district proposal in the 2004 election,
said this was a last resort to push county-
wide voting and hold each commissioner
responsible to the county as a whole.
"You've given me no option," Williams
said. "The division we have, either black/

Uninsured persons receiving primary
care at the Gulf County Health Department
are now eligible for substantial savings on
out-patient medications purchased at Buy
Rite Pharmacy.
At a press conference last Thursday, Gulf
County Health Department finance officer
Joy Johnson announced that the Health
Department has partnered with Rx Strategies
and Buy Rite Pharmacy to initiate a 340B
Drug Pricing Program.
The 340B program, established by the
1992 Veterans Health Care Act, requires
drug manufacturers to provide outpatient
drugs to certain covered entities such as
Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs)
at a reduced price.
The Health Department received the
FQHC designation in 2002.
The program allows every health
department patient a discount if purchasing
medication out-of-pocket at Buy Rite. Savings
are roughly 50 percent below the drugs'
average wholesale price.
The discount will vary according to
poverty level designations.
"It will be a tremendous savings, even
for those who can afford to pay," said Health
Department administrator Doug Kent, noting
that the discount extends to not only the


white or north/south, is killing us."
Commissioner Carmen McLemore, also
in opposition to the hybrid district, strongly
disagreed with Williams' suggestion.
"This is no way to bring the county closer
together," McLemore said. "If you pass this
tonight, you are dividing them."
"Y'all want a war down here, well bring it
to you," McLemore threatened.
Tom Graney of St. Joe Beach spoke
on behalf of county-wide voting, calling it
"the only way to fix Gulf County" and begin
prioritization for the future.
"We're dealing with five fiefdoms and five
earls," Graney said.
Nearly a year ago, voters favored by
67 percent a return to county-wide voting.
McLemore suggested the item should again
go to the voters, this time in the form of a
binding referendum.
With a room full of citizens exclaiming
that they had already spoken on the ballot
last year, Williams told McLemore that the
issue could not be put on a referendum for
another year.
After the call for the vote, it was Jerry
Barnes, Williams and Peters in favor of the
hybrid structure with McLemore and Traylor
opposing.
County attorney Tim McFarland told
commissioners that since they voted in favor
of the new structure, the next step would be


Rx Strategies national sales representative
William McCormick discusses the Gulf County
Health Department's implementation of the
340B Drug Pricing Program at last Thursday's
press conference.
The program allows uninsured Health
Department patients to save an average of 50
percent on prescription drugs purchased at Buy
Rite Pharmacy.


to amend the consent decree in federal court
to adopt one overall single-member district
for at-large voting This vote again passed 3-2
with the same opposition.

indigent but the uninsured working class as
well.
Some insured patients may receive a
discount if the cost of the medicine is less
than their insurance copay.
The discount does not apply to Medicaid
patients, who already receive federal
assistance in purchasing medications.
At Thursday's press conference William
McCormick, national sales representative for
Rx Strategies, provided a price comparison
for a 30-day supply of the heartburn drug,
Nexium. A 40 mg dosage sells locally for
$157.84; under 340B pricing, it sells for
$91.80.
Rx Strategies will serve as an intermediary
between the health department and Buy Rite,
helping to coordinate inventory and manage
paperwork.
Buy Rite's entire drug selection is eligible
for the discount, including over-the-counter
medications prescribed by a doctor.
Buy Rite was awarded the bid based on
its location relative to the Health Department
and its lack of any real competition. CVS
Pharmacy opted not to participate in the
340B program.-
Rx Strategies and Buy Rite negotiated
a $6 dispensing fee on all prescriptions
filled. The health department will reimburse

Regional Football Playoffs



to Have Gulf County Feel


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
More than 100 miles apart last Friday
night, the Sharks of Port St. Joe and the
Gators of Wewahitchka took a Gulf County-
sized bite out of the looming Region 1-1A
football playoffs.
While the visiting Sharks were icing the
District 1-1A crown with a 48-0 drubbing
of Jay well to the west, the Gators were cel-
ebrating Homecoming with a 38-26 victory
over Freeport, securing the second place in
the district and a trip a familiar mantra this
year for Wewahitchka onto the road for at
least the first two rounds of the playoffs.


Those wins mean that Gulf County will
provide one-quarter of the teams compris-
ing the Region 1 bracket, applying decidedly
purple, red, white and yellow hues to the
postseason for North Florida small schools.
"It's what you work for all year," said Port
St. Joe coach John Palmer.
Greg Jordan, first-year coach at
Wewahitchka, said, "We are in the playoffs
and that is one of the goals we talked about
at the beginning of the season. We didn't talk
about winning nine games or going undefeat-
ed we talked about getting to the playoffs."
That either county school, let alone both,
would reach the postseason, and this point of
the season, with a combined one loss against
a school from outside the county, would have
carried long odds just three months ago.
Port St..Joe entered from fall practice
attempting to replace several key players,
including a three-year starter at quarter-
back, the most athletically gifted offensive
player and several stout defensive linemen
and their top tackler.
The Sharks were not only missing impor-
tant contributors on the field, but leaders in
the locker room.

Storyteller Entertains and Educates


By Blair Shiver
Star Staff Writer
Professional storyteller
Pat Nease does not need a
costume to entertain her
crowds.
She relies on her
whimsical weaving of words
to engage her audiences.
"I'm not a Mother Goose
type," Nease said. "If I'm in
a costume, it inhibits what I
want to do."
Nease will return for a
third year in a row to the Ghost
on the Coast celebration in
downtown Port St. Joe on
Monday, Oct. 31.
It was with trepidation
that she accepted an invitation
from Arts Alliance member
Jodie Perez two years ago.
Nease contended that she
did not usually perform at
festivals and actually offered
to tell her tales for half price.
"Kids don't want to sit
and listen at a festival," Nease
said, adding that they would
rather run around and trick-


or-treat than sit and listen to
a story.
She should know.
For 35 years, Nease
taught fourth through eighth
grade, worked as a library-
media specialist and before
retiring, served as the, writing
coordinator for the Bay
County School District.
This self-proclaimed
lover of words utilized the
Florida Literacy and Reading
Excellence (FLaRE) project,
part of the Just Read, Florida!
Initiative, to develop writing
programs for the school
district.
While serving as the
writing coordinator, Nease
said she was able to examine
how storytelling and writing
were connected.
"Storytelling really
supports all elements of
literacy and writing," she
explained.
Though Nease said 'she
has been a professional
storyteller for about 15 years,


she guessed that she has been
a telling tales all her life.
She is now telling stories
full time, but manages to
maintain an educational
emphasis. Nease has been
flexing her literary muscle
with third and fourth grade
students in Franklin County
in recent weeks. She even took
some time out to captivate the
kindergarteners with a tale.
Her audiences, however,
are not always composed of
children and students.
"I've told stories for the
Red Hat Society, Rotary Club,
women's groups," among
others, Nease said.
Duringher first experience
at Ghost on the Coast, much
to her surprise, ghouls and
goblins of all ages were drawn
into her narratives.
"We couldn't drive
them away with sticks,"
she laughed, recalling the
overwhelming response she
received.
Perez and other members
of the Gulf Alliance for Local
Arts can not say enough about
Nease's ability to enchant her
audiences.
"She's wonderful," Perez
said.
Nease added that though


anyone can call themselves a
professional storyteller some
colleges even offer Master's
programs in storytelling it
is only by studying the craft
'and practicing the art of
storytelling that one truly
becomes successful.
"You prove yourself by

Since her retirement
nearly two years ago, Nease
has committed to storytelling
full time. She laughs when
people ask her, "Didn't you
retire?"
"I just quit my day job,"
Nease said.
As one of very few
storytellers in the Panhandle,
Nease said she is working to
encourage more people to take
up the art. She's even trying
to re-energize Storytellers at
Bay, a local guild of interested
storytellers. She is also trying
to organize a storytelling
festival, but these are long-
term goals, she said.
Though this year's
audiences may remember
some of Nease's past tales, she
promises some new stories up
her sleeve.

Flu Shots Slow to Arrive in Gulf County


By Blair Shiver
Star Staff Writer
Patients seeking flu
shots at the Gulf County
Health Department early
this week were greeted with
quite a surprise there
were no flu shots available.
Both private and public
healthcare providers all
agreed at the beginning of
the month that last year's
critical vaccine shortage
would not be a repeat
occurrence this flu season.
Thometta Cozart with
the Florida Department
of Health (DOH) said this
belief still holds true.
"We still don't
(anticipate a shortage this
year)," Cozart said Tuesday
morning..
With so few private
healthcare providers in
Gulf County, most of whom


only provide vaccines for
their patients, many rely on
the health department as a
primary care facility.
The health department,
however, was turning away
walk-in patients on Monday
morning because it only had
, enough shots to vaccinate
patients who already had
appointments.
Health records manager
Tammy Wood was notified
late Friday afternoon by
Evelyn Youngs, head of
nursing, about the limited
supply.
Wood said the first
two shipments of vaccines,
totaling only 400 of the
1,100 total ordered earlier
in the summer, were
for high-risk patients.
After reviewing the list of
appointments for this week
and counting the number


of vaccines left on hand,
Youngs instructed Wood
not to schedule any more
appointments.
On Monday, some
private physicians were
advising people to go to
the health department for
vaccinations even though it
had a limited supply.
Dr. Barbara Oksanen
said her office 'had ordered
from two different suppliers
and anticipated shipment
at the end of this month or
beginning of November.
For now, she said, her
office does not have any flu
vaccines to administer.
Abby Cozine 'in Dr.
Vincent Ivers office said
they have not received any
shipments of vaccines, but
they anticipate a shipment
in approximately two
weeks.


On Tuesday morning,
Cozart said the DOH had
received a request from for
400 additional vaccinations,
and that the Gulf County
Health Department should
receive the shipment on
Wednesday.
She said the DOH is
not rationing shipments to
public health facilities like
the one in Gulf County.
As soon as the
vaccine arrives from the
manufacturer, Cozart said
DOH does its best to fulfill
statewide orders.
"It .may not be when
everyone wants to get their
shot, but it will be in a
timely manner," Cozart
said.
According to the Centers
for Disease Control, the
flu season in the U.S. is
typically from November to


April. Cozart said flu season
in Florida typically peaks in
January or February.
Though anyone seeking
wishing to reduce their
chances of getting the flu
is recommended to receive
a flu shot, Cozart said that
healthy people may receive
,their vaccination as late as
December and still be safe
during this flu season.
Health Department
Administrator Doug
Kent said he anticipated
conducting a clinic on
Wednesday during the
facility's normal hours of
operation, from 7:30 a.m.
to 8:00 p.m. ET.
Kent added .that with
Wednesday's shipment,
the health department will
begin administering shots to


the general public. The first
shipments were designated
for high-risk patients.
High-risk patients
include those with chronic
heart and respiratory
conditions, especially
asthma, infants, seniors
and those working in a
healthcare or daycare
facility, where flu is more
easily spread.
As long as flu shots
are available, the health
departmentwill acceptwalk-
in patients for vaccination.
Admini.strat i v e
assistant Gwen Allen
recommended for patients'
own convenience that they
call before coming to the
health department at 227-
1276 to assure enough
vaccinations are on hand.

Seeing Red in the Green


The year has, at the least, provided an
S11-month perfect storm for county officials.
The blustery aftermath of Hurricane
Dennis, the drowning effects on citizens
of property tax bills, the political rip tides
inherent in county-wide voting have con-
verged to all but overwhelm county officials
flailing against the rising current.
How these forces gathered and grew into
a maelstrom for county officials accustomed
to a leadership-means-never-having-to-say-
you're-sorry modus operandi presents some-
thing of a chicken-and-the-egg dilemma.
Toss away Hurricane Dennis one
thing that can't be laid at commissioners'
feet is Mother Nature and the question
becomes:
Which reached the front-burner for
voters first, county-wide voting or their
Heimlich tax bills?
We would argue the answer can be found
in another function of this Commission
- profligate spending.
For we would argue that the way the
Board of County Commissioners handles
thepublic's coffers Who is being served by
those ad valorem tax dollars, commission-
ers or the public? could be Exhibit One
in the case explaining how commissioners
have strayed so far from the path most vot-
ers in the county deem appropriate.
A stroll down memory lane offers the
evidence.
Consider the quaint 1995-96 fiscal year,
when the county's budget was just $4.71
million. Over the next five years, the budget
grew to $5.48 million, a rise of 14.9 percent,
roughly. 2 percent per year compounded
over those five years.
By almost any ineasuring stick that-was
reasonable and normal growth, certainly
not gag-worthy.
However, starting with the 2001-02
budget and continuing through the budget
which just took effect, commissioners spent
money like Donald Trump on a bender.
The budget grew from $5.48 million to
nearly $14 million, representing an increase
over five years of about 155 percent, 10
times the growth from the preceding five
years.
That is a compounded annual increase
of some 21 percent, with the past two years
seeing spending increase by more than 60
percent.
,Extrapolate that general trend over the
next five years.
If spending is "capped" at 15 percent a
year over that period, the county's budget
will grow to some $28 million by 2011. By
comparison, should spending since 1995-
96 been limited to a solid but unspectacular
7.5 percent a year, that 2011 budget would
instead come in at just over $11 million, or
$3 million less than the current year's total
budget.
In turn, we'd argue, the distance between
that $11 million projection and the $28 mil-
lion that could be reality in 2011 represents
what can only be labeled excess spending
- from the taxpayers'.point of view consider
it deficit spending.
Now, commissioners would prefer that
the flock consider those budgets and spend-
ing from the vantage point of millage rates,
which the Commission has been able to
keep relatively flat or reduced behind the
beauty of rising property values.-
The millage rate is an easily tracked
digit and as long as it doesn't bulge, hey,
commissioners feel free to argue they have
been good shepherds of the public's dough.

Media Relations and


Public Aspirations


We at The Star are invit-
ing all those who want to dis-
seminate their activities and
goals through the newspaper
to attend a Media Relations
seminar we are holding from
4-5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov.
3.
Aimed at any company,
non-profit, organization,
club or board in the com-
munity, the seminar will pro-
vide insight into the process
for considering and placing
information into the news-
paper.
Want to learn how to
write a clear, concise press
release? Want to know how to
pitch a story idea to us? How
about who to reach and how
to reach them? What is the
difference between publicity
and news? What comprises
good journalism, photo and
advertising basics? How do
you solicit sponsorship for


your club or event from The
Star or the Times publica-
tions in Franklin County?
The answers to those
and other questions will be
answered by folks from The
Star and the News Herald
out of Panama City during
the seminar.
A representative from
your club, company, organi-
zation or non-profit, prefer-
ably the person charged with
media relations, is encour-
aged to attend this free semi-
nar. It will help us serve the
community better, and. you
to assist your constituents
better.
Seating, however, is
limited and registration is
required hey, we need to
know what bulk of refresh-
ments to buy for that 60
minutes of informative dis-
course.


A better comparison, though, can be
found in the actual tax bills property owners
are saddled with each year. and %well make
the comparison between the upcoming lical
year's budget of almost $14 million agrunst
what the budget would look like if spending
had grown at 7.5 percent the past five ,,ea.rs
instead of an average of 2 1 percent
A property owner with a tax bill of $500
for next year is spending nearly $219 extra
dollars that can be tracked to increases in
spending above 7.5 percent a year. A tax
bill of $1.000 represents the $562.14 that
would be expected with normal growth and
an additional $437.86 tacked on b\ the
spending habits of commissioners.
The trend is found across the board up
to a tax bill of $3,000, that number includ-
ing $1,313 folded onto the expected $1,686
should spending had been reined at 7.5
percent 'annually.
All those numbers add up to tax bills
which are roughly 77 percent higher than
they should have been with normal spend-
ing growth or one third of what was reality
- the past five years.
And it is worth noting that those folks
toward the north end of the county who
have yet to see the spike in property values
which have spread across the south end like
sunshine on a summer morning should be
paying drastically lower tax bills if not for
the spending spree county commissioners
have been on.
That spending spree spread joy to all
departments, with the budget pocked with
departmental budgets which grew by 20,
30, 40, 50, 60, even 100 percent the past
five years.
Even departments which lay vacant for
months such as GIS mapping which has
gone up 464 percent got cushioned with
dollars.
Combined with those nifty special proj-
ect funds which aren't far removed from
simple graft and commissioners, we could
argue, have perceived the county budget
more as a way to ensure re-election than
provide services.
The other side of this enormous coin, of
course, is that folks haven't come remotely
close to understanding, or at least being
able to identify, the ways in which their ser-
vices have improved by 10 percent, let alone
the 155 percent spurt in spending the past
five years.
The aftermath of Dennis demonstrated
that even in times of crisis, commissioners
can be achingly slow to respond, parsimoni-
ous with assistance and downright hostile
to any suggestion that more could be done.
The non-action on county-wide voting
this year provides even further evidence of
a Commission so completely out of touch
with its citizenry as to resemble aliens in
their midst.
If commissioners really require further
explanation for the outrage to be found out
in the community, they need look no further
than the spending orgy they embarked upon
five years ago and which has yet to sate
their ravenous appetite for public dollars.
They need only examine what the bud-
get should have looked like this year with
any injection of fiscal responsibility and
compare that to reality and the simple truth
that they have taxpayers across the county
saddled with deficit spending..
If they took such time for deliberation
and examination, commissioners would not
be so surprised that they have many in the
public seeing red.


Registration forms are
available at the Star and
Times offices and should be
mailed, to P.O. Box 308, Port
St. Joe 32457, faxed to 227-
7212 or call 227-1278 for

Hope to see you there ...
Sometime in the next few
days county residents will
begin finding in their mail-
boxes a survey seeking their
input on what they aspire
out of their community.
The county's Strategic
Planning Committee is
beginning to focus its work
you're your help, compiling
data from the citizens of the
county about what they view
as the important elements of
a sustainable community.
Through a short series
of questions the commit-
tee hopes to gather insight
from county residents on a
host of subjects pertaining to
how best to foster a vibrant
community while managing
growth in a positive way that
benefits all.
It is an initial step, try-
ing to craft a vision of the
future by understanding
the present, of how to move
ahead without leaving any-
one behind.

Mary E, Didn't




Need A Mask!


,I never have believed in
all that ghost, ghouls, gob-
lins and witches nonsense!
Back in grade school
the Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment would build a haunt-
ed house for the Halloween
Carnival which scared no-
body but Mary E. Pendleton.
Mother would embarrass us
by walking close behind and
"hanging around" out by the
streetlight as we knocked on
the neighboring doors. Those
homemade costumes didn't
fool a soul---you could take
one look at anybody's knees,
ankles or muddy brogans and
tell exactly who they were.
Mostly, as I look back, we
dressed up and played along
with those silly adults just. to
get the Baby Ruths and the
Milk Duds.
By junior high we leaned
more toward the "tricking"
than the "treating". Bobby
Brewer would make up a
batch of gunpowder and we'd
knock on Mrs. Boaz's front
door, light the short fuse and
run like the dickens.....We
didn't give her time to offer
up the bubble gum or Sugar
Babies. The gunpowder nev-
er exploded, it just burned in
a quick flash. We'd hide out
behind Terry Kennon's house
and laugh about the shock on
Mrs. Boaz's face or the way
she threw up both hands.....
It didn't dawn on me until a
few years later that it would
have taken a miracle for us to
have "scoped out" Mrs. Boaz
face as we hurdled the hedge,
driveway and t. v. antenna
guide wires in Joe Gooch's
front yard!
The next year Bobby
came up with a box of cherry
bombs. We didn't even both-
er to knock on the door. We'd
throw one in a mailbox, slam
the door shut and run like
the dickens. You talk about a
racket! We tried sneaking one
into the apple bobbing wash-
tub at the carnival but the
fuse kept going out. Bobby
did cram one into a Hostess
Cupcake and tried to give it
to Mary E. but even ole Mary,
bless, her heart, was smart
enough not to take anything
from Bobby Brewer on Hal-
loween night!


small, in what folks believe
is the kind of community
which will nurture dreams
and roots.
The Strategic Planning
Committee can't do it alone,
five voices are not nearly as
loud as -15,000.
So take the time, partici-
pate in the initial step in the
formulation of a community
vision. It costs nothing, but
the potential gains could be
substantive ...
The Florida Department
of Law Enforcement recent-
ly released its crime report
for the first half of the year
and while there might be
some skepticism warranted
regarding the overall accu-
racy of the numbers, the sta-
tistics for Gulf County show
an encouraging increase in
arrests and clearance rates.
Overall crime in the
county was down 4.6 per-
cent compared to the same
time period last year, always
a positive, unless, of course,
you happen to reside on the
wrong side of the law.
Arrests were up and it
was interesting to note the
variety of law-breaking com-
mitted in what remains a
relatively small county.
Among a total of 522
arrests, the most common,
no surprise, were drug relat-
ed. Combine aggravated


That \'.o .-Il.., I ,,.- .r
Bobby d c .l:. to pI)Mrin. I.he
to\' rn'; onl, p .:c.h : *-:i r i..:l,
Hale and I went along be-
cause we'd run out of cherry
bombs and we didn't have
any gunpowder. Next to the
water tower fiasco that lik-
ened to have gotten two of us
killed, this might have been
the dumbest thing we ever
came up with.
Bobby's daddy worked
for the city. We knew the
combination to the back
lock. The problem was our
choice of colors came down
to street crossing white, loud
no passing yellow or ball-
park green. We did the only
thing we could think of.....we
mixed'em together.
We "got" the car when
Mr. Aaron Pinson went in
to the City Cafe for his eight
o'clock coffee. He pulled up to
the Halloween Carnival thirty
minutes later madder than a
wet hen! And with an official,
vehicle that had a couple of.
streaks of what looked like
a cross between Gerber's
strained bananas and some-
thing our cat used to throw
up after getting into the rat
poison running across both
front fenders!
'Course, to be perfectly
honest, I didn't get a real good
look.....I was running like the
dickens for the house!
But I digress. We were
talking about not believing in
ghost, witches, spooks and
the like.
Our sophomore year we
decided it was time to "test"
Mary E., big time! We got
LaRenda Bradfield, Pam Col-
lins and Jane Hill to drive
their "friend" out the Shi-
loh Road to the little church
that set on the corner where
you turned to go down to
the clay pits. There was an
old cemetery that sprawled
across three hills behind the
church. I think LaRenda told
Mary E. that Rollin Trull was
going to meet her out there.
Rollin was the coolest guy in
school. Listen, we all know
that "hope springs eternal".
Mary E. didn't need much
encouraging even on Hallow-
een night!
,Me and Ricky were
hunched down behind the
big headstone of Arliss Wan-
namaker. Bobby was just


assaults with simple assaults
and nearly 50 people were
arrested in the first half of
the year for causing bodily
harm to their fellow citizens.
We also have way too
many people who have yet to
absorb that don't-drink-and-
drive lesson, with an average
of more than three DUls per
month during the reporting
period.
There were one too many
sexual offenses one and
plenty of representation for
more exotic crimes such as
embezzlement (1), forgery
(12), fraud (4) and liquor law
violations (2).
The clearance rate for
all arrests rose from 58.6
percent during the same
period last year to 64.5 per-
cent, which Sheriff Dalton
Upchurch attributed in part
to increased public aware-
ness.
Maybe, there are num-
bers which fall through the
cracks but those that remain
paint an encouraging por-
trait of local law enforcement
and crime trends ...
Finally, the'invites have
gone out for the second of
three visioning workshops
sponsored by the county
Economic Development
Council.
Here's a hope that those
who missed the first con-


c:i, ). lim_0n us in the Lew-
i-tn' hnil plot. We had
" -:ut ,ot feed -acks and bed
sheets thrown over us and
we all had on those rubber
masks with the warts and big
nose. And our hands were
filled with water balloons,
mustard balls, crabapples
and the mushy insides of half
a dozen pumpkins.
Mary E. was out in front
of the other girls looking for
Rollin when we sprang. Bob-
by let out a -blood curdling
yell that scared me just a
little.... and then the night air
was filled with flying objects
and mass mayhem!
Mary E. didn't run! She
tackled Bobby! Right as we
jumped in to finish Mary E.
off Ricky dropped his weap-
ons, threw off his mask and
ran like the dickens from the
cemetery like he had just
seen a ghost! I started to yell
after him when somebody
blindsided me from behind.
Before I hit the ground I real-
ized that LaRenda, Pam and
Jane were still up by the
church. Mary E., who was
rather large for her age, was
wrestling with Bobby right in
front of me. And Ricky was
now half way back to town.
There wasn't supposed to be
NOBODY else out here!
I rolled over and saw' a
nine foot creature with a big,
bloody ax, wearing a pair of
Chuck Taylor All Stars bas-
ketball shoes, about to do
me in. I.hurled a crabapple
right through him. And I
mean right through, him! I
couldn't have missed from
two feet! This thing's breathe
smelled like burnt cabbage.
The eyes were orange. And
they were lit up! IT raised the,
ax. I passed Ricky like he was
standing still!
Monday at school Bobby
and Mary E. spoke in very
low tones and only to each
other. LaRenda, Pam and
Jane, to this day, deny they
were ever even at the cem-
etery that night.
I .can't rightly explain
what happened---and I was
there! I still don't believe in
witches, ghouls and gob-
lins .... but I'm kinda with-
holding my judgment about
ghosts until Ricky shows up.
Happy Halloween,
Kes


clave, particularly our elected
officials and major landown-
ers, will take the time to par-
ticipate in what could poten-
tially be the most significant
peering-into-the-future exer-
cise going on right now in the
county.
The EDC is trying to fig-
ure out how best to spur the
growth of businesses, and in
turn jobs, in the county. As
we've stated before on this
page, it is the visioning pro-
cess with the greatest chance
of producing something tan-
gible as an end result, such
as better wages and bol-
stered job opportunities in
the county.
But the EDC needs
partners, partners who can
bring substance to the table,
action to the talk. In other
words many of the folks who
for varying reasons did not
attend or participate in the
first meeting.
There is a line from a
song which is appropriate
to those endeavors which
require the movers and shak-
ers of a community to meld
agendas on common footing.
It provides the screen saver
for this computer and is a
mantra by which the com-
munity as a whole can gain
through growth.
"In the end, nobody wins
unless everybody wins."

Little Habitats and Big Steps

ab H. f y F. '


By Blair Shiver
Star Staff Writer
Though they cannot
house an entire family,
they can provide hours of
entertainment for a child.
Habitat for Humanity of
Gulf County has embarked on
their first official community
fund raising project for the
organization's first Habitat


house, slated for completion
by July 4, 2006.
The symbolic completion
deadline, or. Independence
Day, characterizes the
mission of Habitat for
Humanity. The non-profit
ecumenical organization
is committed to eliminate
poverty housing by providing
decent housing for those who


could not otherwise afford to
own a home.
"With this project,
we hope to raise money
and awareness locally for
Habitat International," said
Tracy Melvin, president of
Habitat for Humanity of Gulf
County.
Just as a new playhouse
may fulfill the wildest dreams


of a child, Habitat of
County will help one
family begin realizing
dreams of home owner
this week.
Several public work
and a stringent inte
process have helped
Habitat for Humanity
of directors narrow
selection to a few qu


families, and they will make
their final selection this
week.
To coincide with the
selection of the first family,
Sy the board will also finalize
the site of the first Habitat
f Gulf of Gulf County home this
local week.
their "We are thrilled to
ership have reached the point
to put actions with our
shops words," Melvin said of the
erview organization's progress.
d 'the Gail Alsobrook,
board development committee
the chair, said the proceeds from
alified this playhouse fundraiser
will go directly toward the-
first home, on which Habitat
of Gulf County plans to break
ground in February 2006.
Two playhouses, one
at Frank Pate Park on the
corner of U.S. 71 and U.S. 98
.' in Port St. Joe, and the other
I in front of The Star office
in the Port City Shopping
Center, will be raffled off
during this year's Christmas
on the Coast celebration.
Raffle tickets for the
playhouses are $5 each, or
five for $20 and are available
. J at all area'banks, according
to Alsobrook.
'5 Tickets for the raffle
may also be purchased by
calling Linda Huie at 227-


1120 or by email request to
gailalsobrookr(,vahoo.com.
The drawing for the
houses will be held' at the
finale of the Christmas on
the Coast event in Frank
Pate Park on December 3.
'VWiners do not have to be
present that evening to win.
Melvin said Habitat
will als, have a presence
at Christmas on the Coast,
still promoting their home-
building focus.
She hopes to have pre-
baked gingerbread houses
available for children and
'families to decorate, another
small but significant event
to raise money for the local
affiliate.
Alsobrook said the
playhouse fundraiser would
' rot have been possible
without the generosity of the
City of Port St. Joe and George
Duren for allowing Habitat to
display the houses in these
prominent locations.
Jana Traylor, on the
development committee with
Alsobrook, and her father,
Commissioner Billy Traylor,
enlisted the help of inmates in
the Gulf County Correctional
System to build and deliver
the playhouses.

the position, and Butler said
the program's future could
be in danger.
"We're in a bad situation,"
Butler said. "We don't have
a director and our program
could be in jeopardy."
Butler advised
commissioners that their
decision to move the Mosquito
Control department under the
jurisdiction of the Sheriff's
Department during the river
flooding in Wewahitchka
earlier this year may have
jeopardized the department's
furiding eligibility.
Commissioners
approved the Building
Department's request to hire
another employee for code
enforcement.
Brad Bailey proposed
that the new hire would be
part time in the Building
Department and part time
in the Human Resource
department. Bailey cited a
"dire need" for an employee to
do code enforcement because
of constant complaints called
into his office..
Human resource and
risk management director
Denise Manuel raised the
issue of renewal of employee
health insurance to the
board's attention.


She reported that the
Blue Cross Blue Choice
308 PPO, currently costing
the county approximately
$119,000 a month, will likely
be phased out of existence
next year by the provider. She
recommended acceptance of
the Blue Options 1356 plan
at a $99,000 a month cost to
the county, amounting to a
savings of $240,000 a year.
The primary difference
in the policy is a $100
deductible employees would
have to pay to go to the
emergency room. This is
designed, she explained, to'
discourage people against
using the emergency room
as a primary care service like
a regular physician.
"I for one am not for
cutting any employee
benefits," McLemore stated
for the record.
Manuel explained that
after consulting with Butler
and a contracted negotiator
for the county, she felt it
would be better to transfer
policies at these rates
because the county doesn't
know what rates will be next
year after the old plans are
phased out.
Williams requested
tabling the issue for further


investigation to see if a better
plan may be available, but
Manuel explained that open
enrollment for Blue Cross
Blue Shield began Nov. 1.
Stanley Robertson of
Indian Pass questioned the
commissioners' decision
to stick with the current
policy, in essence passing
up the opportunity to save
a significant amount of
money.
"You're not running
this county like you run a
business," Robertson told
commissioners.
The board approved
acceptance of a bid for the
Public Works department to
purchase another 4-wheel
drive vehicle from Cook-
Whitehead Ford in Panama
City.
Dannie Bolden of the
Community Development
Council appeared before the
board to request approval
of amendments to the SHIP
program policies, specifically
policies concerning mortgage
payment assistance,
foreclosure prevention and
utility-based assistance.
McFarland told the board
that in 90 days, Bolden had
completely re-written the
plan for the county's housing


assistance program and gave
strong recommendation for
acceptance of the changes.
The board voted to
approve the modifications.
Rick Marcum of
Opportunity Florida reported
his organization had received
$136,000 to conduct a
broadband feasibility study
across the rural counties his
organization serves, which
include Gulf County.
Commissioners heard
from, several citizens.,from,
Cape San Blas who voiced
their opposition to a proposed
ordinance i to impose. a,
municipal services taxing
unit to fund a proposed beach
renourishm'ent project.

DENTAL NEWS FROM THE OFFICE OF


FRANK D. MAY, DMD, PA

DENTAL SPLINTS
By far, the most common cause for teeth to become loose and mobile is advanced periodontal
disease which erodes the supporting bone. If the mobility,is not too sever and the teeth are other-
wise spund, they may be stabilized with a splint which binds them to healthy adjacent teeth and to
each other. This distributes the chewing pressures among them. A very simple splint may connect
a single mobile tooth to a single firm tooth, or it may connect a group of mobile teeth to teeth on
either side. One type of splint is created by cutting continuous channels into the involved teeth.
Wire, or nylon filament are laid in these grooves. The dentist then fills the channels with a tooth
colored material which holds the wire and binds the teeth together. These splints are inconspicuous
and can be inserted easily.
Another more elaborate splinting device is the fixed bridge. It is beautiful and strong and
usually lasts a lifetime.

Wewahitchka Examines Projects Costs


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
A volatile economic
summer has produced a
ripple through the City of
Wewahitchka.
During their regular bi-
monthly meeting on Monday
night, Wewahitchka city
commissioners discussed
at length projects to extend
water lines and expand
wastewater service with-
in the city limits, projects
being impacted by a sum-
mer of spiking gasoline costs
and the associated rise in
construction materials and
freight.
Specifically, commission-
ers are seeing the cost of PVC
pipe which is, obviously,
a critical element to both
the water and sewer projects
- skyrocketing along with the
cost of petroleum products.
In the past few months,


PVC pipe has risen in cost
between 30 and 100 percent,
which just ticks the price of
both infrastructure projects
upward.
With both projects depen-
dent on federal grants and
loans, leaving little budget
flexibility, city officials are
examining their options for
completing the projects with-
in budgetary constraints.
This could mean delay-
ing putting the projects out
for bid in hopes that gas
prices which impact both
the manufacture of PVC and
the shipping of the pipe to
Gulf County will fall off
enough to make the projects
more feasible.
"The price of the projects
has really gone up," said city
manager Don Minchew. "We
are looking at both projects."
Extending water lines
throughout the city lim-


its is being funded with a
Community Development
Block Grant of $1.1 mil-
lion, with a county match of
$350,000.
The installation of sewer
lines into Red Bull and Red
Bull Island was made possible
through a $2.3 million grant/
loan package from the U.S.
Department of Agriculture's
Rural Development program.
Since the loan and CDBG
grant amounts ,are both
capped, the city must bring
both projects in within cur-
rent budgets. If both projects
were bid right now, Minchew
said, a portion of each would
have to be eliminated from
the scope of work.
"We are really trying to
make an intelligent deci-
sion," Minchew said. "We are
still early in the process."
Which could allow the'
city to secure an extension


of time, for instance six
months, from both the Rural
Development and CDBG pro-
grams before the city would
have to bid out the projects,
with the aim being able to
move forward when the costs
of pipe and shipping might
be lower and more manage-
able.
Minchew said the city
had begun talks with Rural
Development if for no other
reason "than opening the
lines of communication" to
determine if an extension if
feasible.
With hurricanes, the cost
of trucking and the spike in
petroleum costs, Minchew
said, the city has a good
case for allowing an exten-
sion, noting that if the city
has to dip into its own' pocket
for any more of the expense
of.the projects, either one or
both could be in jeopardy.

Work Continues on Lamar Faison Fields


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
A small group of vol-
unteers joined Preble-Rish
employees and city work-
ers last Thursday at Lamar
Faison Fields. Their efforts
were concentrated on one
goal: to not disappoint the
girls' soccer coach.
"Betty Curry gave us the
deadline of Nov. 7. That's
why we're, out here today,"
laughed Preble-Rish vice
president and project super-
visor, Bill Kennedy.
The immediate goal was
to. get the fields in working
order in time for this year's
soccer season. Lighting was
the first order of business.


Former Progress Energy
employee Teedy Nobles
steered the "Ditch Witch"
around the fields' 'perime-
ter as Preble-Rish employ-
ees climbed into the pit and
secured the lighting cables.
On the fields, volunteers
scooped dirt from wheel-
barrows, filling in channels
carved by freewheeling teen-
agers who used the area for
donut practice.
Coastal Design and GAC
Contractors earlier donated
their services, top dressing
the fields and offering several
hours of heavy equipment
time.
The fields, named for
the late Port St. Joe High


School football coach Lamar
Faison, are being construct-
ed with $400,000 in grants
from the Florida Recreation
Development Assistance
Program.
When finished, the two


regulation sized fields will
boast expanded bleachers,
restrooms and concession
stands.
Kennedy said the fields
should be fully completed.

Port St. Joe Wraps up District 1-1A Title


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
Another dominant per-
formance on defense, anoth-
er offensive explosion and
the district title now resides
in Port St. Joe.
The Sharks completely
overwhelmed out-manned
host Jay en route to a sev-
enth-straight victory and the
clinching of the District 1-1A
title last Friday.
Port St. Joe held Jay
- dealing with player injuries
and defections to just 60
yards of total offense while
the Sharks were rolling up
440 offensive yards and bury-
ing Jay under an avalanche
of points to win 48-0.
Port St.. Joe is now 7-1
overall and 5-0 in district
play as the Sharks enter the
district finale against -West


Gadsden at 7:30 p.m. this
Friday at Shark Field. Port
St. Joe will be celebrating
Senior Night.
"This was a big one,"
said Port St. Joe coach John
Palmer. "(The district title)
was what we were working
for all year. It was a huge
motivator for us."
The Sharks were so dom-
inant on offense that they
were able to get playing time
to three quarterbacks, seven
running backs and a number
of other junior-varsity and
freshmen players on the ros-
ter and still never punted the
entire game.
Junior quarterback Mike
Quinn continued his prog-
ress along the learning curve,
producing his most efficient
game of the season while
spearheading the offense to
a quick lead.


Barracudas Go to Camp
The Emerald Coast August 2000 by sports and
Barracudas full-tackle wom- entertainment entrepreneur
en's football team hosted a Catherine Masters.
football mini camp last week- Another football mini-
end at the Mowat Middle camp is slated for Nov. 5 at the
School football .field in Mowat Middle School, from
Panama City. 9-11 a.m. (CT). Interested
The Barracudas are women will begin their physi-
one of 38 teams within the cal conditioning and have
National Women's Football the opportunity to meet the
Association, founded in coaches and staff.


Quinn ran for a touch-
down and hit touchdown
passes of 26 yards to Josh
Jenkins and 30 yards to Ash
Parker, all in the second
quarter to stake Port St. Joe
to an insurmountable half-
time lead.
Quinn ended the night
6 of 7 passing for 167 yards
and two touchdowns.
"He's really done a good
job of minimizing mistakes
the past three weeks," Palmer
said. "He's taken care of the
football and he's made some
big plays, not just led the
team, but made big plays."
Parker got the offense
going in the first quarter with'
a 19-yard touchdown run.
Ashley Davis blasted over
from the 1 on a touchdown
run, Mike Byrd scored from
the 2 and Greg Farmer went
over from the 7 in the final


The team is led by head
coach David Freeland, a
former Appalachian State
University football player,
and owned by Jesse Hixson.
The 2006 football season
will begin in mid-April, and
end in July, with the NWA
championship taking place
in August.
The Barracudas play
eight games a season, four at
home at the Buddy McLemore
stadium in Panama City and


quarter to complete the scor-
ing for the Sharks.
Parker carried eight
times for 69 yards to lead
Port St. Joe on the ground,
with Davis rushing eight
times for 57 yards.
Quentin Jenkins had two
catches for 79 yards.
Once again, that offense
was teamed with a suffocating
defense, which never allowed
Jay to get untracked.
"We were able to con-

Palmer said, noting that with
injuries and players leaving
the program, Jay is down
this year compared to last,
"but they'll bounce back I'm
sure."

the brackets are aligned, it
appears that as long as the
Sharks keep winning they
will remain at home through
at least the first three weeks
of the playoffs.
The key, Palmer said,
is to remain focus through
the final two games West
Gadsden and Apalachicola,


both at home and main-
tain the confidence built up
through the first eight weeks
of the season.
"We have to keep our
focus and keep grinding them

Making Old Boats New Again


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
Richard Hance and Tony
Fields spent the last month
undoing the damage to a
once stately 1968 Chris-Craft
boat.
Using state-of-the art
products, the pair staged
a total refurbishing. They
repaired holes and applied
fiberglass, eliminating all
signs of the boat's recent
tussle with Hurricane
Dennis.
Hance and Fields quickly
restored the 36-footer to its
pre-hurricane condition,
returning the boat to the Port
St. Joe Marina last week.
Transformations of this
kind are nothing new for the
pair.
Fields, who has 25 years
experience restoring and
refurbishing boats, owned
Marlin Marine in Miami
before moving to the area
seven years ago.
In Port St. Joe, Fields
teamed with Hance, the
owner of Craft Cleaning
Service, a business which
specializes in quality paint,
varnish, fiberglass and gel
coat repairs.
They cater to a niche
market of yacht and pleasure
boat owners, and have
seen their workload grow
as a result- of their solid
reputation among clients
from Apalachicola, Indian
Pass, Cape San, Blas and.
Mexico Beach.
Fields' said he can


accomplish virtually any
aesthetic repairs, but
is content to leave the
mechanical work to the
mechanics.
"If I started doing that,
they wouldn't send me their
boats," Fields laughed.
Hance and Fields are
happy to have found each
other. Both say it is difficult
to find good, experienced
help locally.
Fields recruits his 17-
year old son, Chris, for many
jobs and wishes he could
train some other young
people in the craft.


have a mobile business,
carrying tarps and equipment
to shops andbackyards and
conducting restorations
there.
Their latest project is
a 38-foot, 1939 Hubert S.
Johnson Trunk Cabin Cruiser
owned by Dick Henderson.
The lapstrake, all-
mahogany boat boasts
an impressive pedigree.
Only three of its kind were
manufactured in the world,
one of which sank.
The two that remained
were in serious disrepair

parts from both to create
Henderson's boat.
The Cabin Cruiser
was restored to its original
condition three years ago,
but the restoration did not
take.
Henderson's son, Alex,
affectionately calls it "the
money pit."
Hance and Fierds plan
to strip the boat completely,
apply epoxy, barrier coating
and paint. The wooden
portions will be sanded and
given a clear coating.


Henderson's family will
help with the two to three
month restoration.
Fields called the wooden
boat building tradition "an
old art, a craft that has gone
by the wayside."
Few people work on
wooden boats anymore, and
some, like Fields, can feel
somewhat daunted by the
task.
"Five years ago, I said
I'd never work on a wood
boat again," laughed Fields,
who deals frequently in
fiberglass.
Hance recalled the boat
builders who once plied their
trade in Port St. Joe. He
believes that he and Fields,
who labor to return old
boats to their former glory,
are part of that time-honored
tradition.
"We kind of think and
hope maybe we can carry it
on," he said.

A Sign Fit for Twine

County commissioner Nathan Peters, Jr. points at the image of Washington High School's beloved
former principal, Emile Twine. The sign now adorns the Emile Twine Gym, located in Nathan Peters,
Jr. Park in Port St. Joe.


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
A change of mind, a
change of sign.
Nathan Peters, Jr. was
not completely happy with
the sign he commissioned for
the Emile Twine Gym.
The red, white and
blue hand-painted sign,
unveiled just in time for the
Washington High School
Class of 1958 reunion, did
not befit the man for whom
the gym is named.
Peters dedicated the gym,
located in Nathan Peters,
Jr. Park, to Emile Twine,
who served for 19 years as
Washington High School's
principal.
Peters described Twine as

State Scientists Meet at Buffer Preserve

the field.
"They" were the scientists
and staff of the Florida Natural
Area's Inventory (FNAI) who
arrived in Port St. Joe last
Thursday for their semi-
annual retreat and strategic
planning conference;
After a quick bag lunch,
Jean Huffman, manager of
the St. Joseph Bay State
Buffer Preserve, briefed the
group on the topography,
treasures and history of the
property.
Founded in 1981 as part
of The Nature Conservancy's
international network of
natural heritage programs,
FNAI's main purpose is
to build a comprehensive
database of the biological
resources in Florida, which
now includes more than
28,000 element occurrences
(EOs) of rare plants, animal's
and high-quality natural
communities.
After a nearly three-
hour trip through the Buffer
Preserve, FNAI director Gary
Knight said everyone was
excited to see the high quality
of the natural communities
contained within the state-
preserved property. For many
of the two dozen scientists
and researchers at the
retreat, this was their first
trip to this area.

"These are really

Knight said. "(We thought)
this would be a good place to
review our methodology and
stimulate discussion."
In the conference
portion of the retreat on
Friday, Knight said the staff
coordinated their strategic
planning efforts, looking into
the future to improve the
mission of the program.

interpreting and dispensing
critical information for the
conservation of Florida's
diverse biological landscape.
Aside from the clear
scientific value of the preserve
lands, Huffman explained to
the group the monetary value
of the land prior to the field
trip.
"In the three years I've
been here, land value has
quadrupled," Huffman said.
FNAI not only serves the
scientific and environmental
communities through its
commitment to preservation,
it also serve local planners
and government agencies.
By maintaining records
of the state's rare plant and
animal species habitats in
a Geographic Information
Systems (GIS) database, they
are able to advise developers
on feasible, or unfeasible,
land acquisitions. Because
of these efforts, FNAI is also
able to advise legislative
lobbyists on state land which.
should be preserved.
Part of Huffman's
management responsibility
at the Buffer Preserve is to
conduct regular, controlled
burns of the landscape.
She refers to the build
out on the boundaries of the
Buffer Preserve as "urban
interface" with which she

must constantly contend.
Knight refuted what he
called the "Smokey Bear"
affect, saying that these
prescribed burns are critical
to the land's conservation.
Knight said it was
actually his organization
that recommended the
Department of Environmental
Protection's acquisition of the
Buffer Preserve land 10 years
ago.
When the state purchased
the property, Knight said
it 'was very shrubby, which
ultimately increased the


potential for natural fires
caused by lightening or other
elements to burn out of
control.
These natural threats
would pose a dangerous
threat to the houses and
private property surrounding,
so Knight explained that these
prescribed burns are good for
all of the environments.
"This really is a biological
treasure," Knight said. "This
was a wonderful opportunity
for us to get out and see
this."


Port St. Joe Commissioners



Examine Sewer Options


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
Transforming the old
into the new to accommo-
date future growth was on
the minds' of Port St. Joe city
commissioners on Tuesday
as they conducted a work--
shop to examine options for
improving the sewer system
in the older areas of the city
proper.
Commissioners were
weighing alternatives provid-
ed by Preble Rish Engineers,
which examined the city's
wastewater system to- iden-
tify areas of need.
It should be no sur-
prise to anybody who lives
along Palm Blvd. that the
area most critically in need
of redress was the area along
that central thoroughfare
and adjacent and connecting
streets.-
"That was the worst
area, the oldest area," said
Elizabeth Syfrett of Preble:
Rish, noting' that lines in
that part of the city were
generally more than 50 years
old. "That was what every-
body wanted to get done and
was most in need of help."
With age, the joints in
the system begin to separate
causing what is known as I-
and-I inflow and infiltration
- which increases the ineffi-
ciency and costs of the oper-
ating the sewer system and
can impact water quality.
The most pressing need
identified was to replace
sewer lines along Palm Blvd.
as well as rehabbing the lift
station at Sixteenth Street
and constructing a new pump
station at the site of the city's


water storage tower.
The cost of that work
would be just over $1 mil-
lion.
But after considering
several alternatives, and
understanding that work
done today will save money
over time as growth and the
system's age require further
rehabilitation or replacement
of sewer lines in other areas
of the city, commission-
ers appeared to be leaning
toward undertaking a project
larger in scope and cost.
In addition to the work
centered on Palm Blvd. and
including the rehab of lift
station No. 16 and building
a new pump station, com-
missioners voiced tentative
agreement in expanding the
project to include replace-
ment or re-lining of sewer
lines in an area roughly
bounded by Eighth Street
and Madison Avenue and the
bay and Forest Park.
"I asked (Preble, Rish)
to look at the future and
what we could do now to
address the current situation
and plan for future improve-
ments," said city manager
Lee Vincent. "This is a great
step."
The total cost of the
expanded project was esti-
mated at $5.3 million and
change, Syfrett -indicated.
Preble Rish will bring a scope
of work for the project and
estimated costs to Tuesday's
regular Commission meeting
for formal approval to move
ahead on the project.
There are two variables
at play with the any time-
line.


One is the cost of PVC
pipe which has been impact-
ed by the recent spike in
petroleum products, from
which the pipe is made.
The high costs of PVC pipe,
Vincent said, compelled the
city to wait until at least after
the first of the year to bid the
project.
"The price of pipe is so
unstable right now," Vincent
said.
Indications he had
received from suppliers is
that with gas prices now
beginning to recede, the end
of hurricane season and the
onset of winter in the north,
the price and availability of
PVC should improve in early
2006.
The second variable is
steadily climbing interest
rates, which city attorney
Russell Scholz noted should
spur the city to secure financ-
ing for the sewer project and
send the project out to bid as
soon as is feasible.
Given the initial survey
and design work required to
move forward on the broader
sewer project, Syfrett indi-
cated that Preble Rish would
in any case likely need until
after the first of the year
to complete the preliminary
work.
This fit within the over-
all time frame commission-
ers seemed to desire as they
move to kick-start the proj-
ect.
"We are going to spend
money now to save money
later," said commissioner
John Reeves.

Lighthouse of Cape St. George; Eroded by Time


By Trip Jones
Contributing Writer
The year is 1852 and
dozens of me are work-
ing amidst the sand dunes
of Cape St. George, fight-
ing off the dog flies and the
humidity, in their attempts
to complete a grand 74-foot
brick lighthouse. This tower
is to replace the previous
one which was toppled the
year before, after just four
years of service, by a cata-
strophic hurricane which
also destroyed the Cape San
Blas and Dog Island light-
houses.
It is the third such light-
house on the island and it is
being built 250 yards inland
from its predecessor's ruins,
on both brick and wooden
pilings which will support
is four-foot thick walls at
the base. The builders are
making their best attempt
to defend the valuable lens
against the ravenous hur-
ricanes which are notorious
for consuming Florida light-
houses at about the same
rate that they can be built.
The tower is being built
with as many bricks as pos-
sible that could be salvaged
from the second lighthouse,
which was lying broken and
scattered along the beach.
That second lighthouse had
itself been built only four
years prior from the brick
which had been salvaged
from the original 1833 tower,
which stood at the western
tip of the island near the old
pass. The new tower is to be
painted a majestic white and
-will be responsible for hous-
ing a third order lens which
will warn ships of the treach-
erous and deceptive sand-
bars which extend several
miles into the murky waters
that wash the cape.
Since its construction
the lighthouse has saved
the lives of many by offer-
ing refuge during the count-
less storms which it has wit-
nessed. It has also played a
significant role in, and wit-
nessed both the Civil War
and World War II. During the
Civil War, Union troops used
the lighthouse- as an_ out-
post, although they did not
have possession of the lens
which had been removed
and hidden by Confederate
soldiers, prior to the cap-
ture of Apalachicola in April
of 1862. During World War
II, it served as a training
area for soldiers and as a
Coastal Lookout Station in
the fight against German U-
boats which prowled the Gulf
Coast for tankers leaving
the Louisiana fuel ports on
their destination to Europe.
The Empire Mica was one
such casualty, being torpe-
doed within only 20 miles
of the cape. Surely, the men
-stationed at the lighthouse
stared in both amazement
and horror atop the tower
as they watched the 420-ton
ship burn on the full moon
night of June 29, 1942.
I know that the old light-
house has seen many good
times, as well. Many light-
keepers and families have
dedicated their lives to not
only maintaining the light-
house, but to also making
it their home in which they
have raised their families
and entertained those who
would not come to see the
lighthouse.
Spanning the 153 years
which it has been stand-
ing, I am sure thousands
of people have experienced
cherished, lifelong memo-
ries while visiting the light.
I am one such visitor who is
drawn to the lighthouse by
its charm and who admires it
for its historical significance.
Unfortunately, I was born too
late to view the lighthouse
and its keeper's quarters in
their splendor, although I do
have many cherished memo-
ries of lazy afternoons on
Cape St. George.
I began visiting the site
around 1980, as a teenager
with my family. We would
venture out each year, dur-
ing the spring or fall in hopes
of avoiding the humidity and
dog flies, to picnic at the base
of the tower in the 1887 light-
keeper's house. Our adven-
ture first involved a boat ride


across Apalachicola Bay to
the leeward side of St. George
Island, where we could moor
the boat safely and avoid the
breakers which are inherent
to the cape. After gathering
together the necessary items
for survival during the day,
we would strap on the back-
packs and take off across the
island, along the sandy roads
which were likely cleared by
the lighthouse builders and
turpentiners.
The terrain is like that


of any other barrier island
in Florida; cat-faced pines
laced with palmettos, the
scrub, and white beaches
lined with dunes, the classic
unspoiled Florida that has
been destroyed far too often
by developers who insist on
replacing the sea oats with
manicured lawns. Our walk
would typically take about
an hour, and I remember
thinking every time about
the many men who labored
in such a remote location
building the lighthouse that I
was on my way to visit.
Near the end of our hike,
after about two miles of
walking across the island, I
would always stare through
the trees waiting to catch a
glimpse of the tower, until I
could finally see the famil-
iar black dome gleaming
through the tall pines. At
that point, everyone would
gasp a sigh of relief knowing
there would soon be shel-
ter inside of the abandoned
lightkeeper's house and that
there might be a chance to
climb the tower.
From that point we would
scramble to what was left
of the keeper's house which
had been mostly stripped of
its walls many years before.
Although thieves and the
elements had already taken
their toll on the old house, it
still maintained a great sense
of character and charm which
made it easy to imagine the
serene side of living in such a
grand home, amidst the sand
dunes. Even then, however, I

had experienced hurricanes
and knew what the Gulf was
capable of when driven by
one. Little did I know during
those times that I would one
day be walking around the
scattered ruins of this once
beautiful home while star-


ing at the leaning lighthouse,
wondering when it too might
be taken by the Gulf.
After refueling on lunch
in the old home, we would
check the door of the tower
to see if it had been left
unlocked, which was mostly
the case during those early
years. I always experienced
a sense of amazement as
I crawled through the four
foot brick walls which com-
prised the base of the tower
and wondered how many
thousands of bricks had to
be hauled to the island to
build it. I would have never
believed that one day I would
crawl underneath the mas-
,uive walls in-teid of entering
thrrodiih a'dioorwav.
Once inside, my family
and I would begin the ascent
to the top using the nar-
row iron staircase that had
only recently replaced the
original wooden stairs. Once
at the top we would circle
the modernized lens and exit
the lantern through a hinged
panel of glass onto the nar-
row catwalk outside. There I
would survey the island and
Gulf, just as many lightkeep-
ers had done innumerable


times before, as they would
watch the ships sail across
Apalachicola Bay, and past
the breakers of the cape.
Those years and experi-
ences were very memorable
for me as a child growing up
in the Florida Panhandle, as

to come, and ultimately
destroy the remainder of the
home.
Fearing that someone
would get hurt on the house's
ruins, the Apalachicola
Estuarine Research Reserve
unfortunately burned the
intact kitchen along with
debris of the house. Many
lumber salvagers, like myself,
would have gladly torn down
the old structure for free
just to have its longleaf pine
boards. There was also some
ornamentation that should
have been saved for future
generations to see. My father
and I had often been tempted
to "salvage" some of the lum-
ber, but fearing prison life,
let it be.
However, concern for
the lighthouse was shared
by many and due to the
efforts of John Lee and the
Cape St. George Lighthouse
Society, funds were raised to
straighten and stabilize the
tower.
Contractor Bill Grimes
began the dauntless task in
1999 and today the tower
stands erect with a concrete
parapet to anchor it against
impending storms.
As the years of my life
pass along, I'm sure the
relentless Gulf will swirl
around th tower and eventu-
ally leave it far offshore. How
many years it will stand, we
cannot say, but eventually
some "great storm" will come
again and it will join its pre-
decessor under the muddy
waters of Cape St. George,
leaving only the memories
made there by those who
admired it.
EPILOGUE
After submitting this
article, I learned that the
lighthouse toppled on Oct.
21. Another of my childhood
memories has now passed
away. How fortunate I was
to have known her and to
have grown up in a time
when there were still plenty
of "wild" places to explore.
At least I knew her for
awhile, grand "old lady" of the
Gulf; who lived through the
Civil War, saw ships wreck
upon her shore, weathered
"great" hurricanes, raised
numerous lightkeepers' chil-
dren, witnessed German U-
boats prowl her waters and
watched in horror as the
Empire Mica burned and


sank.
I will continue to visit
her as one who visits a loved-
one's grave. Her brick tower
will slowly sink into the Gulf
and join her sister already


buried offshore.
As she once saved humari
lives she will now reincar;
nate into a reef and become
the home of an ecosystem of
sea life.

Halloween Safety Tips


Halloween is a time of
great fun for children, but
it can be a little scary for
parents and drivers. Children
are, often out after dark,
crossing busy streets and
perhaps going to, unfamiliar
homes.
*"With the season's
shortened daylight and
excited kids frantically going
from neighbor to neighbor,
drivers need to be particularly
cautious," said Ray Palermo,
director of public information
for Teacher's Insurance
Plan. "However, by following
some simple advice, parents
children, drivers and
homeowners can all have a
safe, enjoyable time."

Kapakai Nalo Canoe Ribbon Cutting


for his incredible talent in
taking on the task of building
the ttrailer from only pictures
sent from a sister canoe
club in Hawaii. Without his
expertise, the canoe would
never see the water.
Boyer's Signs did a
beautiful job of designing
and applying the lettering to
the 45-foot canoe.
Hambrick Realty
provided the financing that
allowed us to purchase all the
extras to get the club going.
Mrs. Ann Ballard, mother of

* .7';


John Ballard, sewed Malia
Faipea's Tahitian costume
which she wore to perform
for our event. She also made
the beautiful hibiscus cake.
Mr. Frank Johnson
was our photographer for
the Chamber of Commerce
newsletter and the article.
Hopefully, the canoe will
be able tb see water soon.
Hurricanes and the red tide
have caused a delay. We will
announce this at a future
date.


On Sept. 10," the
Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce held a ribbon
cutting ceremony for the
new outrigger canoe club.
This has been an event that,
the officers and all other
contributors had at one point
thought would never come
true.
There were many delays
during the 45-foot canoe's
construction. Then, during
the canoe's delivery to Port
St. Joe, a hurricane forced it
to be held in Charleston, S.C.
until the storm passed. The
only part that ran smoothly
was the building of the
trailer.
At the ceremony, the
guests enjoyed tropical fruit,
Hawaiian. style chicken,
Hawaiian punch and a
beautiful cake decorated with
hibiscus flowers. Then, they
were entertained by four of
Malia's Hula School students.
Lisa Faipea danced to Elvis
Presley's "Blue Hawaii" and
Malia Faipea did her famous
Tahitian dance.
Thanks to the generosity
of Coastal Community Bank
because it permitted this
event to be held outside
on its 'lawnr with the canoe
on display in front of the
'bank. The officers of this
club, president, Lisa Faipea,
and vice president, Lisa
Walls would like to thank
the following: Pat and Lee
Sherwood for providing the
financing of the canoe and
trailer, and Mr. John Ballard

Gulf Coast Electric

Rupert Brown,
representing District III,
Group 1, and Robert Byrd,

recognized at the National

new demands on electric
cooperative directors,
' particularly increased
knowledge of changes in
the electric utility business,
new governance skills and
a working knowledge of
the cooperative principles.
Electric co-ops in Florida

work through NRECA
to sharpen this body of
knowledge for the benefit
of their electric cooperative
consumer-owners.
.The NRECA
Credentialed Cooperative
Director program
requires attendance
and demonstrated
understanding of the basic
competencies contained in
five core courses. Brown
and Byrd completed the
following classes: Director
Utilities and Liabilities;
Understanding the
Electric 'Business; Board
Roles and Relationships;
Business Planning; and
Understanding Financial
Planning.
"We are proud to have
Mr. Brown and Mr. Byrd
serving on our Board of
Trustees," GCEC Assistant
Manager Michael White
said. "Completing this
certification certainly
makes each of them even
more of an asset to the
Cooperative."
I Gulf Coast Electric
Cooperative is part of
the Touchstone Energy
national alliance of


local, consumer-owned
electric cooperatives
providing high standards
of service to customers
large and small. GCEC
serves approximately
19,300 consumers in

The 100 Club extends Deadline


The newly formed 100
Club of Gulf County, a 501 (c)
(3) organization, has extended
its open enrollment period to
enable the maximum number
of new members to join before
membership requirements
become restrictive. The 100
Club of Gulf County is a
publicly-supported non-


profit organization formed to
provide financial assistance
to families of public safety
personnel who may die
iri the line of service to
the community. Members
commit to support with $100
dues each year. A bumper
sticker and .membership card
is issued to each member


annually.
In making the change,
100 Club of Gulf County
Chairman, Peter H. Burgher
of Indian Pass, stated: "We
have over two hundred
applications for membership
out in the community and
had to print one hundred
mere to satisfy the demand so
I have unilaterally extended
the open enrollment period
to January 1, 2006 so people
who want to become charter
members can have time
to get their applications in
to Ralph Roberson, CPA,
our Treasurer. This action
extends the open enrollment
period beyond the time
limit traditionally used by
100 clubs elsewhere in the
country." Burgher further
summed up the wishes of
the Club's trustees, that
prospective members try to
get their applications into Mr.
Roberson's office as soon as
possible so the club' will have
resources available to meet
any emergency. Roberson is
located at 214 7th Street in
Port St. Joe. Funds will be
deposited in The Bank where
Trustee Michael Leonard
will act as Chief Investment
Officer.
After January 1, 2006,
prospective members must
be sponsored by two existing
members of the organization.
Application forms are
available at the Gulf County
Sheriffs Office, the Port St.
Joe Police station, the St Joe
Country Club and the office'
of Roberson & Friedman,
CPA's. Questions can be
directed to Major Joe Nugent
at 227-1115 or any of the
trustees. Trustees are Jerry
Barnes, Peter H. Burgher,
Charles Costin, Esq.,. Kesley
Colbert, Michael Leonard,
Ralph Roberson, CPA and
Willie Ramsey.

RELATIONSHIP
ADVICE!

Why are realty professionals
called "agents?" What is the
meaning of the term "agent" in
the context of real estate?

Real estate is practiced under
the "I,aw of Agency," in which
one party the agent repre-
sents the interests of another
- the principal. The associa-
tion is termed an "agency rela-
tionship."
As the sellers' agent, the rep-
resentative acts on the sellers'
behalf, With their best inter-
ests in mind, to locate a buyer.
The buyers must be treated
honestly and fairly, but they
are not "represented" by that
agent. The sellers' agent is
always faithful to the sellers'
best interests (but not neces-
sarily those of the buyer).

In the past, most buyers were


not represented by an agent
- they made theur buying deci-
sions using factual informa-
tion presented to them by the
sellers or their agent. Because
of the increasingly complicated
nature of real estate transac-
tions, however, "buyer agency"
has become more common.
To gain representation in their
purchase, buyers may employ
an agent to represent, their
interests and fulfill the obliga-
tion to faithfully serve them.

What's the real message about
agency? Both buyers and sell-
ers should know whether they
are represented and by whom.
To find out, ask the agentss,
"Who are you representing
in this transaction?" Inform
yourself and make confident
decisions by learning the facts
about agency relationships
before you buy or sell.


Thinking of selling? Call for
a free consultation. \Vayne

She frowned at me stub-
bornly and said nothing.
The next morning, we
sat down and watched
"Peppa Pig" on Tickle U
and it was nice, sharing a
chair, talking about what
the characters were doing
and what might happen
next.
Is TV going to provide

Probably not. That's a

Is it going make them

Judging from the piles

MUSIC MAKERS: In their backyard clubhouse, puppets Jack,
his best friend Mary and his dog Mel make music, and guest stars
stop by to jam. Plays daily on Noggin.


'Yoko! Jakamoko! Toto!'


Also debuting this fall

Tickle U isn't the only new wrinkle in TV programming for
preschoolers this fall. New twists include:
More Diversity: With "Go, Diego, Gol" Nickelodeon gives an
8-year-old bilingual Latino boy his own show. Diego debuted
in 2003 as a periodic guest star on his cousin's show, "Dora
the Explorer." "Go, Diego, Go!" premiered on Nickelodeon
and has joined the Saturday morning lineup on CBS.
More Music: Laurie Berkner, a rising star in children's music,
will appear on each episode of "Jack's Big Music Show" on
Noggin, the commercial-free cable spinoff of Nickelodeon.
In their backyard clubhouse, puppets Jack, his best friend
Mary and his dog Mel make music the dog's on the drum
kit and guest stars stop by to jam, from blues guitarist
Buddy Guy to gospel group Sweet Honey in the Rock. Plays
daily on Noggin.
More Storyline: "Bob the Builder Project: Build It" is said
to be the first-ever serialized program for preschoolers.
Instead of seeing entirely self-contained episodes, as previ-
ous preschool programs have been, this time tiny viewers
can follow Bob and his crew as they build a new town from
the ground up. Each show stands on its own, but kids can
follow along from show to show as the road is built, then a
barn and so forth. Debuted on PBS in September.

order to sell a product," she
said.
The idea that watching
the Tickle U programs will
teach kids to have a sense
of humor and therefore
is good for kids is "essen-
tially deceptive," Linn said.
While a sense of humor
is a wonderful thing and
research on its benefits is
abundant, linking those
benefits to TV is disingenu-
ous, she said.
"They're calling it a
humor curriculum ... and
in fact, watching television
actually deprives kids of
doing what they need to
do to develop a sense of
humor," Linn said. "They
should be engaging in the
world, getting a sense of
mastery of the world, and
interacting with other kids
and adults."
The advertising messag-
es prevalent in all children's
TV programs whether
commercials on TV or the
merchandise that features
show characters makes
kids into and the targets
of massive marketing cam-
paigns, she said.
By the time I was fin-
ished talking to Linn, I
was feeling guilty for the
amount of TV and the
barrage of commercials I
let my own kids watch.
"Daddy, I need a 'Hello


Kitty' TV for my room," my
4-year-old jokester told me
quite earnestly the other
day.
I asked her if she'd seen
an ad for it on television,
and she said that was so.
"Well, you can't have
a TV in your room," I told
her. "And you know those

God's Power...The Bible says, "The Lord is slow to anger & great in power." His
power is often on display for our good. Moses said, "The eternal God is your refuge, &
underneath are the everlasting arms."
God is always faithful to His Word. Whatever situation or circumstance you find
yourself in right now, let God's power transform you in the midst of it. Power is one
of His primary attributes let Him work in your life as never before.

Beacon by the Sea & AARP


"Beacon, by the Sea"
and AARP are sponsoring
a Driver Safety Program
for Seniors. The program is
a driver refresher and an
educational course for all
drivers 50 years of age and
older. Every driver age 50
and over, really should take
this course. There is nothing
to lose but a little time, with
an awful lot to gain. There
are no examinations, no
driving tests and no chance
of losing your license. At the
completion of the course you
will receive a certificate that
can get you a discount on
your auto insurance. This
certificate is good for three
years, then the course must
be taken again.
This highly effective
driver's refresher course is
a two-day course that will
be presented in two four-
hour sessions over a two
day period at "Beacon By
The Sea", St. Joe Beach on
Wednesday and Thursday,
Nov. 2-3., from 8 a.m. until
noon ET. To cover some of
the expenses a fee of $10
per person, preferably in the
form of a check made out to
AARP, will be collected.
The purpose of the AARP
55 Alive Driver Program is
to reduce traffic accidents,
violations and fatalities for


senior citizens and their
loved ones. We want to show
senior drivers how to cope
with the age-related physical
changes we are faced with.
We will cover the new laws,
highway signs and road
markings, and safety aspect
of driving, such as facing
hazardous road and heavy
traffic conditions. The course
will cover ways to handle
the dangers of alcohol,
medications, and the two in
combination. Also covered
will be ways to avoid the
criminal while getting into,
out of, and while driving a
car. These are just a few
of the topics covered, plus
much, much more.
"Who needs this course?"
According to all government
and insurance company
reports, EVERY DRIVER AGE
50 AND OVER NEEDS TO RE-
EVALUATE THEIR ABILITIES
ON THE ROAD. Please don't
be one of those people who
believe there is nothing more
to learn because you have
been driving for 40, 50 or 60
years. Millions of people that
have taken this course would
prove you wrong. Please call
the McLaughlins at 648-
3067 for reservations. Walk-
ins welcome only if the class
is not filled.


Recordkeeping for


Retirement Accounts


By Keith L. Jones, CPA
We will turn now to
recordkeeping for retirement
accounts. Some people may
be covered by at least one
retirement plan and maybe
several. If so, you should
be sure to keep a file on
each. Do not forget about
your IRAs, 401(k) plans, as
well as any other employer
sponsored plan for which
you qualify. .Each file
should contain enrollment
papers, statements, a list of
beneficiary designations and
contact information.
Record keeping for IRAs
can confuse even the savviest
organizer. That's because
contributions to your IRA may
have been made with before-
tax or after-tax income, or a
combination of the two. Now
keep; in mind, when you start
withdrawing from your IRA.
income tax will be due on
those pre-tax contributions.
So how do you figure out
how much tax to pay?


That is where your
organized records come in.
Your account statements
will, note whether your
contributions were tax
deferred or not. Be sure to
keep them until you empty
out the account. You should
also keep a copy of Form
8606 in your IRA file. The
IRS requires you to include
this form with your return
in any year you make a non-
deductible contribution.
Before filing your tax return,
make a copy of Form 8606
and put a copy in your IRA
file. It is a lot of paperwork
to keep, I know, but the last
thing you want to do is pay
tax on income that's already
been taxed. Organized
records will keep that from
happening.

Boyd Decrys $8


Trillion National Debt


Florida Seniors Urged to Beware of Scams when


Choosing New Medicare Prescription Coverage


Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-North Florida) today
joined his fellow Blue Dogs
in calling for an emergency
budget summit and
immediate budget reforms as
the national debt broke $8
trillion for the first time in
U.S. history.
"With the ever-increasing
national debt hitting the
breathtaking figure of $8
trillion, it is painfully obvious
that our government needs
to learn to live within its
means," said Congressman
Boyd. "This financial burden
is not only a problem for
government leaders and
economists, but a problem
that hits us in our own
backyards with cuts in
domestic priorities like
education, law enforcement,
jobs, transportation and
Medicaid."
Several months ago,
in an attempt to educate
members, staff, and
constituents about the
national debt. Congressman
Boyd and other members of
the Blue Dog Coalition placed
national debt clock posters
throughout the House of
Representatives' office
buildings that are updated
daily. As of 9 a.m. the debt
clocks read as follows:
The Blue Dog Coalition
The National Debt Today
Is $8,000,000,000,000
Your Share of the Debt
Is $27,000
On Sept.28, the Blue
Dogs wrote President

Bush urging him to call
an emergency* bipartisan
budget summit to address
the ballooning national
debt. The Blue Dogs have
long expressed tremendous
concern over mounting U.S.
debt and are particularly,
troubled by our growing
dependence on foreign
governments to finance our
debt. Earlier this year, the
Coalition offered a 12 step
Plan that would cure our
nation's addiction to deficit
spending that required,
among other things, that all
federal agencies pass clean
audits, a balanced budget,
and the setting aside of a
rainy day fund to be used
in the event of a natural
disaster.
"With little to no
budgetary guidelines and
little to no accountability
for how our tax dollars are
being spent, our government
is spending like teenagers
with a no-limit credit card,"
Boyd said. "The Blue Dogs
believe that we owe it to the
American people to develop a
reasonable and responsible
plan to keep America from
going even deeper into debt.
So far, our calls for budget
reforms have fallen on deaf
ears, but will continue to work
with my fellow Blue Dogs so
that this Administration will
begin to take the national
debt seriously."

With the start date
for enrolling in the new
Medicare Part D prescription
drug program less than a
month away, Tom Gallagher,
Florida's chief financial
officer, reported that his
department's consumer
helpline is getting calls
from Floridians looking for
help signing up for the new
coverage. Also, incidents
of possible scams to take
advantage of seniors have
been reported by Medicare
officials.
"I am deeply concerned
that scam artists will exploit
seniors interested in new
options under Medicare,"
said Gallagher. "We will
aggressively pursue those
who attempt to rip off
the elderly. I urge Florida
seniors to log onto our Senior
Resource Center at www.
flseniors.net and to avoid
fraudulent offerings."
Gallagher said there are
approximately three million
Medicare beneficiaries in
Florida eligible for the new
Part D coverage. But he urged
eligible seniors to seriously
consider signing up for a
Medicare plan unless they
have existing coverage that is
equal to the Medicare plan. If
an individual lacks coverage
and doesn't sign up during
open enrollment, a penalty of
as much as one-percent per
month could be added to the
monthly premium.

gotten


By Kay Kelley
It is no big wonder that
landscapers often develop
a predictable pattern with
the plants they use on jobs.
They go with what they
know, and plants that have
performed well for them in
the past will be used in the
future. To try a new plant
species or cultivar is a scary
proposition in a competitive
market where savvy clients
make sure their investment
is covered by warranty.
The standard guarantee on
plant material is one year,
so if a previously untried
plant fails to live through
an unusually cold winter,
or can't hold up to the heat
or humidity of summer,
the landscaper must reach
into his own pocket to pay
for both replacement plant
material and labor. Most
landscapers are not willing
to risk their profit margin on
new plant introductions.
When developers contract
with landscape companies to
do entire neighborhoods, the
landscapers use the same
plants in each yard. There


might be slight variations
of specimen plants, color
plants, and layout, but to
the casual observer each
yard looks pretty much the
same. Using some of the
same plants throughout
creates a unified look which
is pleasing, but using too
many of the same creates
monotony. Even here on
the Forgotten Coast we have
our standards: pittosporum,
Indian hawthorn, sagos,
sabal palms, and Aztec
grass. 4 Agapanthus and
lantana. For any home on
the coastline, add oleanders
and muhly grass. These are
all good, tough plants that
adapt to an endless variety of
microclimates and need little
extra care.
It is always refreshing
when landscapers step out
in a new direction. Six years
ago red fountain grass was
nowhere to be found, but
now it appears in almost
every new job. (It took a
couple of years to convince
me that red fountain grass
would grow back from a
freeze, so I was a little slow


Gardening


to jump on that bandwagon.)
The same is true of muhly
grass, though I embraced
and promoted that one right
away. In the nineties we had
to explain what it was, now
we see muhly grass used
in almost every new coastal
landscape. Another example
is loropetalum, which was
almost unheard, of until
growers began promoting the
red-leaved cultivars about
ten years ago. We still tend
to space these shrubs too
closely because we often
don't have a good feel for
just how large these shrubs
will choose to grow.
Lately, I've been happy
to see new landscapes with
a little more variety than
usual. Grasses, promoted by
popular magazines over the
last several years, are being
requested, and therefore
used, more often. Grasses
are tough, and that makes
them a pretty safe bet. The
old standards of pampas
-grass, liriope, and Aztec
grass broadened over the last
decade to include muhly,
spartina, and fountain


Garden of the Month


Selected as Garden of the
Month for the Sea Oats and
Dunes Garden Club is the
beautiful home of Jody and
Peggy Adams, who live at
312 Georgia Avenue, Mexico
Beach.
Upon driving in from
Highway 98 the view is
stunning. An old sea captain
named Captain John Ethan
stands at the entrance to
greet visitors. He stands
adjacent to a cluster of pilings
wrapped with nautical rope.
An anchor hangs from the
gate with a pelican sitting
peacefully atop. The rope
extends along the front of the
dwelling and is anchored at
intervals with large pilings.
In the front yard stands
a lovely bed of palms, ferns,
purple plumbago, sea gulls
and a small windmill which
completes the picture. White
brick has been used to
enclose the bed.
A bed on the left side of the
walkway features periwinkle,
ferns and an assortment of
colorful Fall flowers. A large


fountain occupies the center
of this bed. Also a Welcome
Flag hangs from a crossbar
which also features the
address of the owners. Atop
the crossbar sits a quaint
red birdhouse, with two huge
pelicans resting at the foot.
Large hedges on the left side
provide, privacy. At the rear
along the fence line is a bed
of bright red canna lilies.
Also at the rear, adding to
the comfort of the home is a
large screen porch extending
out into a deck. The house
and deck have an assortment
of low shrubs and plantings
adjacent to the buildings. The
backyard if filled with fruit
trees, loquats, satsumas,
grapefruit, and lemons. Also
of special interest is a gnome
garden with whimsical
gnome figures, planted with
aloe, spider plants and
other interesting plants. A
beautiful gardenia continues
to thrive in spite of being out
of season.
The drive to the garage is
flanked with multiple grasses,


chrysanthemums and
blooming shrubs. Whimsical
turtles of various sizes are
interspersed among the
shrubbery. A pair of antique
shoes, obviously worn by an
old sailor, rest among the
plantings. An old-fashioned
pitcher pump gurgles
water from the side of the
garage. Here are plantings
of Spanish Bayonet and the
huge grapefruit hanging with
large fruit. To further add to
the nautical scene an anchor
hangs from the center of the
garage roof.
The Adams have
done a remarkable job on
landscaping their home and
in spite of the hot and dry
summer have maintained it
well.

Month for the Sea Oats and
Dunes Garden Club, please

grasses. Recently I've spied
crown grass, Fakahatchee,
and tall miscanthus species.
Blue-eyed gtass and love
grass is finally catching on,
with nice results. Boggy areas
are sporting new plantings of
soft rush and horsetail.
I have to give a lot of
credit to St. Joe Company
for their foresight in insisting
on the use of native plants in
their coastal developments.
Maybe they are promoting
the same concept further
inland, I don't know. I
hope so. I do know that
visitors who wander through
these developments are
commenting favorably on
the way the native plants
are used to restore disturbed
eco-systems and blend the
homes seamlessly into the
surrounding environment. It
would be nice if the staff
of their visitor centers could
identify the plants used,, or
if a copy of the landscape
design of public areas could
be displayed so visitors
could identify what they
were looking at. Such was
not the case when I visited.


Still, some of the plants
specified by their landscape
architect are now being used
elsewhere, as landscapers
get more comfortable with
the successful results.
For those of us who like
to try new things, it might be
worthwhile to negotiate the
terms of a contract with new
clients. Gardeners try new
plants all the time; sometimes


they work out, sometimes
they don't. It's the successes
that set us apart and lend a
little more diversity to our
surroundings. If a client
would give the landscaper
a small budget for daring,
the results just might be
spectacular.

you know her husband Mitch
