District Graduates Making The Grades


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
The Gulf District Schools Class of 2004
tended to outpace their peers around the
state on several key indicators of achieve-
ment and progress toward continuing their
education after high school.
The annual High School Feedback Report
from the Florida Department of Education
highlighted that the most recent graduat-
ing classes from Wewahitchka and Port St.
Joe high schools scored above state aver-
ages on standardized assessment and col-
lege aptitude tests and generally placed and
performed above their Florida peers in their
first semester of college.
"I think it shows that our school system
is doing a great job of educating our students
and encouraging students to pursue post-
secondary education," said Sara Joe Wooten,
district supervisor for instruction.
Several numbers are worth special note.
The district's 123 graduates took and
scored at or above college-level cut scores in
each portion of both the SAT and ACT col-
lege-aptitude tests in greater numbers than
seen around the state.
"We are at or above the state averages on
all those," Wooten said, adding an interest-


ing wrinkle which has been revealed in the
data over the years suggesting that students
in the Panhandle in general perform better
on the ACT while students in South Florida
perform better overall on the SAT.
"It's almost a Mason-Dixon line," Wooten
said, adding that the trend is reflected with
Gulf County students.
Once in college, Tte number of 2004
graduates who carried a GPA above a 2.0 (C)
exceeded the statewide average, percentage-
wise. The number of students enrolled in a
college math class achieving a "C" grade or
better, from remedial to advanced, well out-
paced their peers statewide.
"We really shine there," Wooten said.
The statistics were similarly impres-
sive when the question turned to English
courses. For example, where 84 percent of
district graduates taking Comp I or II earned
at least a "C" while the state average was 65
percent.
The High School Feedback Report fol-
lows on the heels of a spring release which
showed that the district's Class of 2003 led
the state in graduation rate with nearly 95
percent of students entering high school four
years prior earning a diploma.
In other business taken up during


Tuesday's regular monthly meeting of the
Gulf County School Board:
Superintendent Tim Wilder encouraged
board members and the public to contact
the office of Speaker of the Florida House
Allan Bense who represents Gulf County
- and voice opposition to a bill for next year's
legislative session which would mandate
that Veterans Day be a holiday for all school
districts.
Currently, Veterans Day is an optional
holiday, meaning individual districts can
decide how to honor the day.
That position has been under siege in
recent years by lawmakers who want to make
it a holiday for all public schools. Wilder
noted that Gulf County has been the leader
in arguing to keep Veterans Day an optional
holiday for schools, due to the special role
schools play in celebrating Veterans Day in
the county, which will be on display again
on Friday when ceremonies take place in the
gym at Port St. Joe High School and on the
football field at Wewahitchka High School.
Another legislative bill of concern to
district officials is one that would mandate
all schools begin the year no earlier than
120 days prior to the administration of the

GCBC Rejects



Beach Restoration


Funding Proposal

By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
After four months spent devising a beach
restoration plan for Cape San Blas, the
county Beach Advisory Committee found
itself back at the drawing board Monday
night, as the County Commission voted 5-0
to reject the committee's proposed funding
mechanism.
The Beach Advisory Committee's proposal
called for the project to be funded by a
Municipal Services Taxing Unit (MSTU), a
special assessment tax levied on property
owners within the project area, defined as
between the Stump Hole and St. Joseph's
Peninsula State Park.
The board was slated to vote on the
MSTU next Tuesday, but called the matter to
a vote after hearing from a number of bayside
property owners who opposed the project.
In an earlier presentation, Beach Advisory
Committee chairman Paula Pickett outlined
the project's costs and potential benefits to
the county. (See related story on 7A.)
A bond that would finance the project's
initial phase would be paid out of the MSTU
over a five-year period.
The MSTU would need to be put in place
before the year's end so that property owners
could vote on the proposed tax in a March
2006 referendum.
The ultimate decision to move forward
with the project, Pickett stressed, would be
made by the property owners.
Several bayside property owners took the
podium to argue that they were being unfairly
taxed. They believed gulf side property owners
were the only ones to gain from the beach
restoration.
Though project engineer Mike
Dombrowski, with MRD and Associates,
stressed the potential benefits to the entire
county, he concurred with those who stated
that erosion would not reach the eastern side
of the proposed project area.
Two separate MSTUs were proposed for
bay and gulf side property owners with gulf

Station Fined for



Price Gouging

By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
A Port St. Joe convenience store has been
fined by state officials for price gouging after
Hurricane Dennis and motorists who can
prove they purchased gas at the store during
much of July could be in line for refunds.
The Express Lane at 206 Monument
Avenue was cited by the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Services last
week for illegally raising its price for a gal-
lon of gas by 8.7 cents between July 7 and
July 24.
The incident occurred in the aftermath
of Hurricane Dennis, when a state of emer-
gency had been issued by local officials.
Under the settlement with the state, the
station was fined $500.
A complaint was filed with the state by
Commissioner Nathan Peters, Jr., among
others, after gas prices shot up almost over-
night after Dennis buffeted the area.
The store was one of four in Florida and
South Georgia which were fined for raising
gas prices between 75 and eight cents dur-
ing a summer in which natural disasters and
market pressures contributed to volatile gas
prices.
The stations were cited for exacerbating
the situation for consumers by illegally rais-
ing prices.
They were among 10 stations offered set-
tlements in recent weeks for allegedly engag-
ing in price gouging. The agreements include
the payment of fines ranging from $10,000
to $500 and refunds and a pledge not to
engage in price gouging in the future.
Six other stations have yet to settle with
the state and face potential lawsuits. The
identities of those stations involved were not
released by the Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services.
Customers of the Express Lane could be
in line for refunds of overcharges provided
they have receipts showing gas purchases
from July 7-24.
The amount of the reimbursement is
nine cents per gallon. Customers must sub-
mit their proof purchase to the store no later
than Oct. 24.

Crawl Before The First Step


The County Commission's decision on
Tuesday to nip in the bud any effort to estab-
lish a special taxing district to provide local
match dollars for beach restoration on St.
Joseph Peninsula provided a textbook case for
studied steps in government.
What sank the proposition before it got
started was a groundswell of opposition which
was launched because there remained too
many questions surrounding the proposition
to provide any real traction.
And where lack of information provides a
void, it is often filled with disinformation.
Folks simply did not understand some of
the basics such as the cost of the restoration
project, how much would be coming in state
funds, how long the commitment carried by
the establishment of a special taxing district
would be.
The actual costs, in fact, would not be
evident until just before a voter referendum on
the special taxing district took place.
There .was simply too much..,intjegry
area on "a question that ultimately involved
taxpayer greenbacks. In the current climate.
with property values orbiting, tax burdens
heavier by the day, to dip into taxpayers' wal-
lets again requires that the horse be before
the cart.
The sense of urgency is understandable,
leaving aside the overarching question about
the long-term efficacy of beach restoration or
renourishment.
Walk on the beach, or what's left of it,
along White Sands Drive or near the Cape San
Blas lighthouse. That sandy ribbon is being
gobbled by the water, in huge gulps. Some 60
homes are likely to be ultimately condemned
due to damage from storms and associated
erosion
With storms intensifying in strength and
frequency, summer and winter, and state dol-
lars being earmarked for beach restoration
projects across the Sunshine State next year,
implementing some mechanism to bolster a


private match to pull down those state funds
is certainly attractive.
But the proposal on the table involved
taxpayer bucks and buyers want to know
how their money is being spent What's the
product? How good is it? before they will
allow being nicked again based on the value
of their home.
Additionally, for owners peninsula prop-
erty located bayside, while they could find
purchase in the argument that the beaches
are a county asset, worth incalculable sums
as environmental and recreational jewels,
they could not get their arms around what
made them so fortunate as to be singled out
for additional taxation when their vested
interest in the beach is on par with folks in
Port St. Joe, Simmons Bayou, Overstreet and
Wewahitchka.
As one bayside resident said this week
what was needed was an education program

-beach- advisory committee established by the
County Commission and which recommend-
ed the special taxing district whereby tax
levied in an area from the Stump Hole to St.
Joseph Peninsula State Park would support
a five-year bond issue proved insufficient to
having all the questions swirling around the
proposal answered.
A website devoted to the beach restoration
effort was an advocacy portal, not a forum for
pointed questions, one resident suggested.
So the committee has its task laid out. A
Plan B is needed. And that Plan B must be
laid out with an education effort in the com-
munity. Such a thing should be component of
any question put to voters, we would argue.
An informed voter casts a legitimate vote.
And when the discussion turns to tax-


payer dollars,

legitimacy is what it has to be


People over the years
have often asked me which
of all my little stories is
my favorite. I usually reply,
"I don't rate'em, I just
write'em." But if you pressed
me this one would definitely
come to the top because Red
Melton and Jack Cantrell are
real, the snow was cold, the
band was awful, we were so
young.....and the reverence
and respect gained from the
experience has reverberated
with me down though the
ages.....
I don't really remember
the first time I saw them.
I'm sure it was early in my
grade school career. I know
I was very small. And I also
know for certain it was the
11th day of November. Miss
Carolyn spent the morning
telling us about the treaty
that was signed in a rail-
road box car on the 11th
hour of the 11th day of the
11th month. As we got our
coats on to go outside I
remembered thinking, "Why
would the whole world want
to fight each other?"
I saw them even before
Miss Carolyn got us lined up
by the flag pole. Gosh, they
were old men! I don't see
how they could have done
any fighting. Of course, you
had to figure quite a few
years had passed between
1918 and 1954. We called it
Armistice Day back then.
The next year, guess
what? We all pile out of class
and take up our positions-:
by the flag pole. I'm .talking
the whole school here,
elementary through senior
high. The old men are back!
And they've got that little
cannon with them. I can
close my eyes and see it as
plain as yesterday. About
sixteen or eighteen old men,
wearing those green hats,
waiting till exactly 11:00 am
and firing that little cannon.
Then they step back
rather smartly I thought for
old guys, form a single line
and wait for Mr. Allen to
start up the band. Folks, I'm
nine years old. I don't know
nothing about nothing. But I
stood in amazement as that

Oh, Say Can




i You See..


drummer hit the first beat
on what was to be a rather
weak rendition of the Star
Spangled Banner. Those
old men weren't bent and
twisted over no more. No sir!
They were ram rod straight.
They threw up a salute with
a steady hand that didn't
waver. Like I say, I didn't
know much in 1955, but I
knew the high school band
had struck up those guys all
time favorite tune!
The next year- there
wasn't but about thirteen or
fourteen of'em. I tried to see
how many I could recognize.
Mr. McDade was one. Mr.
Harper was there. As was
Mr. Jack Cantrell and Red
Melton. I'd seen the others
around town all my life--- I
just couldn't put a name
with them. Miss -Dinwiddie
said after we got back to
class that every World War I
veteran in town always par-
ticipated in the ceremony.
By my eighth grade year
thy were down to seven
men. And Mr. Harper was in
a wheel chair. The cannon
blasted away, the smoke
rising on the wind as the
men stepped back to form
their line. It's funny 'how you
see certain things at certain
times that just stick in your
mind forever. In that split
second after the men were
in place but before the band
hit a note I saw Mr. Harper's
hands tighten on the arms
of that wheel chair. I was
looking right at him. He was
"66iiiing out of that wheel'
chair! Two of his friends
of forty years reached out
and got him erect. Everyone
stood for the presentation of
colors.
I was fourteen years old.
I still didn't understand. But
folks, that day I shed my
first tear for a veteran of a
foreign war.
There were three of
them my senior year. And I
remember it was very cold.
Too cold for any of us to be
out here! I was by the flag
pole thinking this was the
last time for me and this
ceremo--- the cannon didn't
fire!
Thefe was complete


silence. Bless those old
guy's hearts. The cannon
must be as worn out as---
You should have seen those
three men go to work! They
got down on their hands and
knees on the freezing ground
and started taking parts off
of that old gun. They were
working like mad men.,
We're all just standing
around, kind'a embarrassed
for them when it hit me.
Look how persistent these
old guys are! I got to watch-
ing closely. It didn't matter if
it was a toy cannon at a high
school ceremony in 1964 or
charging the Siegfried Line
in Northern France in 1918.
They were going to get the
job done! How persistent!
The world marveled at their
rapid deployment and their
fierce fighting ability in
1917. Will Rogers said, "It
only takes half as long when
you just train them to go
one way."
I 'was seeing some of
that now. I thought of my
Father and World War II.
Whew, a more stubborn,
persistent man never lived..
I didn't know it at the time
but standing on the other
side of the flag pole was
my stubborn, persistent,
younger brother. He was the
toughest one of the Colbert
boys by a whole heap. He
was also the Colbert that
would spend a year in the
jungles of Vietnam.
You know, we're a
mighty lucky country. We've
always sent our most stub-
born, persistent, never back
up people off to do our fight-
ing.
Those three old men
stood up and Mr. Jack jerked
on the rope and that cannon
roared like never before. The
entire student body broke
into a cheer.
I wish you could have
seen those three men,
America's finest, standing at
attention that cold November
morning! We can't thank
them enough! And bring on
the Star Spangled Banner.
It's been my favorite song
since 1964.
Most Respectfully,
Kesley


Go The Distance

Star News Editor


Constricted Circulation


Sometimes you're the
windshield, sometimes you're
the bug.
Right now we're the bug.
As many readers have
found we at The Star are
breaking in a new circulation
technology designed to make
our life, as well as yours,
.easier, though as with most
technology advances this one
offers its own growing pains.
Those pains, unfortu-
nately, are providing plenty
of headaches for our trusty
partners at the U.S. Postal
Service and our loyal cus-
tomers who count on finding
their newspapers in the mail-
box each Thursday or Friday.
We are converting to a
PBS system which does
not mean Pointless Bundled
System to label and mail
papers into our circulation
area. The conversion has
come with more bugs than
found in a CIA lab.
At times, to put it bluntly,
we've felt mired in a swamp
without waders and mosqui-
to spray. There have been


stumbles and times when
the ground seemed to sink
beneath our feet.
We readily acknowledge
that we are stretching the
graciousness of Postmaster
Dennis Geoghagan, who has
demonstrated the patience of
Job, and his workforce, not
to mention those of you out
there who count on a trip to
the mailbox at the end of the
week resulting in something
beyond more bills and junk
mail.
We're like you; when it
doesn't show we want answers
and we want them well,
now. The fact that sometimes
we've offered up limp rem-
edies demonstrates the oft
time futile attempts to under-
stand and corral a machine
and some software.
This is just another
instance in which there is
nothing soft about technol-
ogy. Sort of makes one appre-
ciate a Luddite's aversion to
all things machine.
In the long run, of course,


this new labeling and mailing
system is intended to provide
more efficient service, but
while we are working out the
kinks that sounds a lot like
asserting that the new King
Kong movie is going to be big-
ger and better than the three
or four previous versions of
the ape-meets-girl-falls-off-
skyscraper story.
Our Thanksgiving wish
- or Halloween, whichev-
er you prefer is for our
loyal customers to continue
to have patience with us as
the bumps and bruises are
healed. We hope that will be
as soon as the paper you are
now reading.
If you miss a paper, please
call us and well replace it as
soon as possible. Give us the
information on the subscrip-
tion so we can ensure that
entry into the new system
is correct and this problem
doesn't resurface again and
again like a Britney Spears
song in an elevator.
We understand the situa-
tion is bugging several of you
out there, but please try to be
mindful that right now we are
the bug which just splattered
into a windshield flying 100
mph in our direction. We call
that windshield PBS.
The results, right now,
aren't exactly pretty, but we
are doing our best to clean
up the mess. Give us a week
or two and the stain will have


all but disappeared.
And a hardy thanks for
reading, and caring, from
everybody at The Star
HONORING THE SPIRIT OF
FREEDOM
Time is running out to
send .in nominations for the
annual "Spirit of Freedom
Award." The award is open to
everyone from Navarre to Port
St. Joe. Nominate your friend,
neighbor or business associ-
ate who respects individual
freedom, demonstrates integ-
rity and self-responsibility,
values life-long learning and
supports their local commu-
nity. Nominations are being
accepted for this prestigious
award through the end of this
week.
Judges will choose sev-
eral local award winners to
receive a $500 donation to a
charity of the winners' choice
and recognition in the local
newspaper.
In addition, judges will
then choose one regional win-
ner from the local winners
who will receive a $1,000
donation for a charity of their
choice, plus print and online
media recognition. Winners of
this year's Spirit of Freedom
Awards will be announced on

Thursday, Nov. 24.
Every year, Florida
Freedom Newspapers &
Interactive recognize, individ-
uals, groups, businesses and
organizations in the region-


al coverage area that prac-
tice the ideals advocated by
Florida Freedom Newspapers
& Interactive.
Last year, the regional
award went to folks involved
with the Taunton Children's
Home in Wewahitchka.
For more information and
an online entry form, go to

coast.comrn/freedom award/ .
PLAYOFF FOOTBALL
The preliminaries are
over. Now the football season
gets down to the real punts,
passes and kicks.
Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka move into the
next stage of the 2005 football
season this Friday when each
participates in the Region 1-
1A playoffs.
The two have combined
for 17 wins and have lost only
one game apiece to a team
from outside Gulf County;
Blountstown, ranked No. 2
in the state Class 2B poll,
started the season by beat-
ing Port St. Joe and ended it
with a victory last Friday over
Wewahitchka.
Other than that, only the
Sharks win over the Gators
at midseason has blemished
either's record. So it would
not be too much of a stretch
to see Wewahitchka and Port
St. Joe face each other at
Shark Field three weeks from
now to decide the regional
title and a trip to the state


Final Four.
And here is a last plea for
fans; crowd those stands.
Port St. Joe will host
Hilliard at 7:30 p.m. this
Friday and here's hoping that
the stands bulge with pur-
ple-and-gold clad fans. This
could be the first of three-
straight home playoff games
for the Sharks, but in part
next week's date is set by the
momentum built this week.
That means fans.
Make the Homecoming
crowd seem like a tea party in
comparison and fill the night
air with a volume of voices
to more than match that of
the smoke billowing from the
concession stand.
Wewahitchka must travel
to Lafayette County to take
on Mayo High School, which
might not be such a bad thing
considering the Gators were
6-0 on the road this year.
And here's hoping a cara-
van of Gator fans make the
trip along with the team bus
to Mayo, hoopin' and hollerin'
and making sure the folks in
Mayo County remember their
brush with the pads and hel-
mets from Gulf County.
Finally, a tip of the hat to
both teams for their accom-
plishments thus far and the
wish that both emerge victori-
ous Friday night and provide
further writing, and reading,
material in the weeks ahead.

The Boyd Report


Saluting Service and
Sacrifice By Congressman
Allen Boyd (D-FL) Each
November 11th our country
comes together to remember
our veterans who have
served and sacrificed in the
name of freedom. These
men and women in uniform
selflessly stood in harm's
way as the guardians of
our most fundamental
freedoms-life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness.
With approximately 71,000
veterans in North Florida
alone, Veterans Day gives
us the opportunity to
express our collective
gratitude and appreciation
for their noble service to
our country. We must also
take this opportunity to
renew our commitment to
the men and women who
have worn the uniform in
defense of this great nation.
As a combat veteran myself,
I understand the sacrifices
veterans make to defend our


country. Leaving family and
friends behind is not easy,
but protecting and serving
America and all that it stand
for makes this a meaningful
and noble sacrifice. Now
is the time for the federal
government to recognize.
this sacrifice and fulfill our
moral obligation to those
who have fought for freedom
and democracy.
Unfortunately, many
government leaders have
failed to keep the promise
we made to our veterans
by inadequately funding
veterans programs. Earlier
this year, the Administration
laid out a budget proposal
that was about $338 million
belowwhatthe Congressional
Budget Office estimated was
needed for fiscal year 2006.
While -Congress rejected
the Administration' slight,
it is blaringly clear that
this Administration does
not have the best interests
of our veterans at heart.


Unquestionably, difficult
choices are before the public
and Congress with respect
to the nation's budget
priorities, and I have been
a staunch advocate for
budget reform and fiscal
responsibility. However,
we cannot promote fiscal
restraint on the backs of the
men and women who serve
our country. We must take
care of those who defend
our country today and fulfill
our debt to those who have
defended us in the past.
Sadly, the funding
problems for veterans
programs do not stop there.
In June, the Secretary of
Veterans Affairs, Jim
Nicholson, acknowledged
that the Department of
Veterans Affairs was short $ 1
billion for covering veterans'
healthcare needs this year.
Congress was able to close
the funding shortage by
providing $1.5 billion for
veterans' healthcare needs


this year. However, these
funds were appropriated
after much time and effort
was spent correcting the
VA's huge mistake, one that
could have been avoided
with appropriate candor and
accountability.
In addition to fighting
for adequate funding for
veterans programs, I am
also working to enact a
new GI Bill of Rights for
the 21st Century. In 1944,
we honored the Greatest
Generation through a Bill
of Rights, and in each major
military conflict since, we
have honored the service of
our soldiers through a new
GI Bill. The new GI Bill of
Rights focuses on improving
veterans' healthcare,
including mental healthcare,
to meet the needs of our
returning troops. This bill
would also end the Disabled
Veterans'Tax, which prevents
disabled veterans from
receiving military retiree and
veterans' disability benefits
concurrently. I have worked
with my colleagues in
Congress to score a partial
repeal of this tax, but the
remaining disabled military

A Veteran Died Today


He was getting old
and paunchy and his hair
was falling fast, and he
sat around the post telling
stories of the past.
Of a war that he fought
in and the deeds that he had
done. In his exploits with his
buddies, they were heroes
everyone.
-And though sometimes
to his neighbors, his tales
became a joke, all his
buddies listened, for they
knew whereof he spoke.
But well hear his tales
ri6 16onger, for "01' Bob has
passed away, and the world's
a little poorer, for a veteran
died today.
No he won't be mourned
by many, just his children
and his wife, for he lived an
ordinary, very quiet sort of
life.
He held a job and raised
a family, quietly going, on
his way, and the world won't
note his passing, though a
veteran died today.
When politicians leave
this earth, their bodies lie in
state, while thousands note
their passing and proclaim


that they were great.
Papers tell of their life
stories, from the time that
they were young, but the
passing of a veteran goes
unnoticed and unsung.
Is the greatest
contribution, to the welfare
of our land, someone who
makes a promise and fools
his fellow man?
Or an ordinary fellow,
who in times of war and
strife, goes off to serve his


country and offers up his
life?
The politician's stipend
and the style in which
he lives are sometimes
disproportionate, to the
service that he gives.
While the ordinary
veteran who offered up his
all, is paid off with a medal
and perhaps a pension
small.
It's so easy to forget
them, for it is so long ago,

What Is Beach Restoration And Why We Are Talking About It In Gulf County


By Paula Ramsey Pickett
Gulf County Tourist
Development Council
By now you've heard the
buzz around town or have
seen the posters: "Visit www.
savethecape.com." You may
be asking yourself, "save the
Cape from what?"
Hopefully, this short
story will bring Gulf County
residents and visitors up
to date on an issue that
should concern us all.
Like so many other areas
in Florida, a section of our
precious beach is eroding. In
the past year, the county and
state have begun exploring
ways to reverse this trend in
the proposed project area -


generally between the Stump
Hole and the St. Joseph's
Peninsula State Park a
stretch that we all know
has been labeled one of the
most beautiful beaches in
the world.
In 2005, the state
awarded Gulf County
$500,000 to conduct a beach
management study and
related offshore sand search
as it relates to the project
area. The county hired the
firm of MRD Associates of
Destin to do the study. MRD
intends to find out why we


are experiencing this serious
erosion and where the sand
is going. If they can find
where the sand is ending up,
the hope is to return it to our
beach while at the same time
addressing environmental
and other related issues.
In addition, the Gulf
County Tourist Development
Council hired well-known
beach economist, Dr. William
Stronge, to determine the
economic impact our beach
has on the local economy.
The results of this study
may be available later this
month.
Of course, we all
generally know what these
studies will show: this stretch


of our beach has suffered
a tremendous amount of
erosion and it is one of Gulf
County's top economic assets.
It has become clear that we
need a long-range solution to
this problem that solution
is beach restoration.
We have tried to save
our dwindling beach truck
by truck load of sand; or
by building walls' and other
structures to the protect the
Gulf-front and its homes.
These methods are temporary
at best.
Stabilizing the shoreline'


in the proposed project
will protect hundreds of
beachfront and upland
structures. In addition,
continued use of recreational
beaches will be ensured
to all Gulf County citizens
and visitors. A wider beach
in the area of Stump Hole
will significantly reduce the
threat of the road being
permanently washed out and
will also restore the numerous
sections of the beach that
are no longer passable for
vehicles, both county and
recreational. The project
will also produce added
benefits such as restoring
the habitat for coastal wildlife
and the nesting habitat for
marine turtles. Equally as
important to Gulf County,
but less recognized, are
the substantial economic
benefits that result from our
beaches. Beaches contribute
to expanding federal, state,
and local tax bases; increase
income and employment
opportunities for residents;
increase visitor spending;
and enhance property values.
Another benefit of a restored
beach is, once completed, it
becomes part of the county's
physical infrastructure. As
such, it is a publicly-owned
asset and FEMA funds are
then available for repairing
future erosion damage caused
by any federally-declared
emergency storm event.
If such funding had been
available after Hurricane
Opal, Ivan and Dennis, the
financial benefit would have
been substantial.
In recent years, the state
of Florida has embraced beach
restoration or renourishment
as the best way to restore
precious beaches. Simply
put, beach restoration is a
method of pumping sand
from the Gulf back onto the
beach. Indeed, in 2005 the
state has committed $73.2
million towards restoration
and follow-up renourishment


projects throughout the
state.
Those projects include
Pensacola Beach (8.2 miles)
and Panama City (17.8
miles). Both are currently
under construction with
maintenance nourishment,
according to Phil Flood of
the state Department of
Environmental Protection.
Navarre Beach (4.2 miles)
begins construction of its
initial restoration this month;
and Destin (2.2 miles) and
Walton County (4.5 miles)
are scheduled for initial
restoration in January.
Currently, Flood said,
there are 42 beaches
in the state with active
renourishment programs
in place. This represents a
total of nearly 175 miles of
restored beach, located in
60 communities throughout
the state.
In 2006, the state is
committed to providing at
least $30 million for beach
restoration.
It is no secret that these
projects are expensive but
studies have shown that it
is money well spent when
compared to the economic
and recreational impact of
Florida's beaches.
The cost for the project
area here the Stump Hole
to the state park has been
initially estimated at $10
million. However, the study
by MRD Associates should
provide a more concrete
number in coming months.
The good news is that
the state will pay for up to 50
percent of the cost if certain


requirements are met -
including provision for public
beach access. Currently, a
study is underway to explore
options for increasing public
access to maximize state
funding.
For our part in Gulf
County, the project will likely


be paid for via a Municipal
Services Taxing Unit
(MSTU).
The MSTU, or special
assessment tax, will be
imposed on only those
properties located in the
project area and can only
be used to fund this specific
project. The cost of the initial
phase of the project which
will be primarily funded by
the MSTU is more than can
be raised in one year's time;
therefore, a bond issue will
need to be in place to fund
the project. Typically the
bond repayment is calculated
to take place over five years.
As a result, the taxes can
be collected over that period
of time, but the initial bond
will still be repaid- before a


new bond is required to fund
ongoing costs associated with
maintenance nourishment.
As currently proposed,
there will be two separate
MSTUs, one for the gulf
side and one for the bayside
properties in the area. An
MSTU is created through an


ordinance passed by a simple
majority vote of the county
commissioners. Such an
ordinance must go in effect
prior to the tax year in which
the special tax is to become
effective.
However, if the county
commission votes to put the
MSTU in place this year, the
tax will not automatically be
assessed in 2006. By passing
the MSTU, the county
commissioners simply open
the door for the voters in the
project area to vote at a later
date on whether or not they
want to proceed with the
project.
In other words, those
residents in the project
area on the Cape will vote
(See RENOURISHMENT on Page 15A)

DENTAL NEWS FROM THE OFFICE OF


FRANK D. MAY, DMD, PA


REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURES
If several teeth are missing, or if the adjacent teeth are not strong enough to serve as abutments,
some form of removable restoration may be used. If some serviceable teeth are still present, the appli-
ance is likely to be a partial denture. Unlike fixed bridges, partial dentures are not entirely supported
by adjacent teeth; rather, some of their support is from the gums and jawbones upon which their
framework rests. The framework of a partial denture is made if a light, strong, noncorroding metal-
most often, a chrome-cobalt alloy. It is cast to confirm closely to the supporting tissues and is retained
by claps.
In the upper jaw, the denture framework may extend across the palate to the other side of the jaw,
or it may be shaped like a horseshoe, leaving much of the palate uncovered. A denture for the lower jaw
must leave room for the tongue, so its framework is usually horseshoe-shaped. Some partial dentures,
hov.e.er are imniplh faim:r.ed 1, claps ( adjiacn[ teeth.

Langston Tournament Provides Showcase, Exposure for Athletes


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
A stride at a time and
pretty soon you are travel-
ing.
The Norris D. Langston
Youth Foundation takes
another progressive step
in the coming weeks as its
Tip-Off Classic tournament
pitches its tent at a new
home with an expanded for-
mat.
This year the tourna-
ment, held each November,
will move to Chipola Junior


College in Marianna and
will, for the first time,
feature high school and
junior college action on
successive weekends.
"We are trying to take this
national," said Dr. David
Langston, the foundation's
president and executive
director. "We are on the
verge of getting teams out
of Indiana and Virginia for
next year. This is an excel-
lent opportunity for great
exposure for our kids.

ter every year. They are a
good school up there and it's
a good school for our kids.
You can't spin your wheels.
You have to move on regard-
less. I am real excited about
this and particularly about
holding it at Chipola" in con-
trast to the tournament's
previous' home at Port St.
Joe High School.
The reasons are two-
fold.
For starters, playing on
the floor at Chipola, ranked
near the top of most nation-
al JUCO basketball polls in
men's basketball, provides
the feel of major-college
basketball for freshmen and
sophomores in college and
the opportunity to play in
front of college coaches and
scouts.
Secondly, conducting
the tournament at Chipola
offers exposure to the college
experience for high school
students still trying to deter-
mine a direction in life.
"We won't be able to


help every kid, but we will
put them in an environ-
ment where if they produce
and work hard they will get
noticed," Langston said.
"You have to deal with prog-
ress and showcase our kids
where they can benefit from
it."
Hard work on the
hardwood and, in particular,
inside the classroom is a
benchmark of the Langston
Youth Foundation mission.
The foundation aims to pro-
vide the platform from which
young students can spring
into their lives through dili-
gence and dedication.
By offering programs,
such as after-school tutor-
ing and the holiday basket-
ball tournament, in which
youngsters can thrive and
expand horizons, the foun-
dation's goal is to help young
people overcome any hurdle
life tosses their way.
"Our foundation is about
providing these arenas for
kids to understand they

can be productive if they
work hard," Langston said.
"Information is the key. The
more information you have
the better you are as a sur-
vivor in our system."
In seven short years the
Langston Youth Foundation
has strived to offer up that
information. With consider-
able community support,
and hands extended from
the state and federal level,
the Foundation has expand-
ed its programs, its scholar-
ship offerings and its initia-
tives to reach young people
throughout the Panhandle.
"We are right on the
edge of having a foundation
that will really help kids,"
Langston said. "The key is
community support and it's
all about developing kids.
"Some people in the
community need to stop
criticizing programs for kids
and get involved. They need
to help these kids."
The Langston
Foundation tournament is
this year divided into a High
School Tip,-Off Classic, to
be held Nov. 18-19, and a
JUCO Tip-Off Classic, to be
held the following weekend,
Nov. 25-26.
The high school tourna-


ment will feature a stout
field which includes Port St.
Joe, Apalachicola, Chipley,
Rutherford, East Gadsden
and Graceville. The teams
will play two games each,
with the action starting at
4:30 p.m. CT each day.
The JUCO tournament
will include four men's and
women's teams. Both Chipola
squads will be in action as
will the men's team from Gulf
Coast Community College,
Florida Prep Academy and
Chattahoochee Valley.
The women's field
includes S. Georgia Tech,
Alabama Southern and
Clinton Junior College.
JUCO action will begin
at 1 p.m. CT on both Nov.
25 and 26.
Tickets for both the high
school and JUCO tourneys
are $10 each per day, allow-
ing each fan to see four bas-
ketball games each day.
Proceeds from the tour-
nament will go toward provid-
ing an endowed scholarship
at Chipola Junior College
which will be earmarked for
students benefiting from
Norris D. Langston Youth
Foundation programs.

f


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
Two entirely different
species of shark took the
field in Port St. Joe last
Friday night.
It showed.
The Port St. Joe Sharks
entered as the No. 2 team
in the state Class 1A poll,
riding an eight-game win-
ning streak since losing
27-10 at Class 2B power
Blountstown to open the
season and pointing toward
a first-round playoff match-
up with Hilliard, starting
7:30 p.m. Friday at Shark
Field.
Apalachicola's Sharks
traveled to Shark Field with
a 0-8 mark, the product of
academic and injury woes
which had taken wins off
the board and depleted a
once-promising roster to


just 15 players.
So it was little surprise
that Port St. Joe (9-1) ticked
off the first 35 point- in a
little less than 13 minutes,
triggered a running clock
before the midpoint of the
second period while sub-
stituting liberally and ran
away with a 49-6 victory.
"We got to play a lot of
our young kids and that
was good," said Port St. Joe
coach John Palmer. "We've
just got to keep executing.
We have to execute and play
hard. Hilliard (7-2 entering
Friday's play) has a good
ball club and they played a
tough schedule."
A review of the opening


12:43 at Shark Field sufficed
to understand Port St. Joe's
Homecoming night win.
Port St. Joe gained 146
yards and scored five touch-
downs on just 10 offensive
plays during that span.
Apalachicola man-
aged minus-one net offen-
sive yards, notched a single
first down, turned the ball
over twice and punted three
times for an average of 15
yards as the ball never left
the Apalachicola side of the
field.
Apalachicola managed
its first dowfi on the opening
series but that small victo-
ry was followed three plays
later when Apalachicola
quarterback Jordan McNair
fumbled as he was sacked,
Port St. Joe's Sydney Harris
pouncing on the ball at the
Apalach 27.


Daniel Welch went six
yards on a sweep arid Ashley
Davis followed with a burst
*over left, tackle, which' he
bounced outside and down
the sideline for a 21-yard
touchdown.
It was then three-and-
out for Apalachicola and fol-
lowing a 16-yard punt Port
St. Joe took 6ver at the
Apalach 34.
On first down Ash
Parker all but duplicated
Davis step-for-step, barrel-
ing over left tackle and then
zipping down the sideline
for a touchdown. Will Just's
extra-point he was a per-
fect 7 for 7 made it 14-0.
After again starting deep


in its end Apalachicola was
three-and-out and squeezed
out a punt of nine yards,
Port St. Joe taking over its
opponent's 34.
Greg Farmer picked
up four off right tackle and
Parker followed with a 30-
yard jaunt around right end
on a sweep and it was 21-0
with still 3:32 left in the
opening period.
On second down on
the ensuing drive McNair
fumbled again with Josh
Jenkins recovering for Port
St. Joe at the Apalach 14.
Port St. Joe quarterback
Mike Quinn attempted his
only pass on first down,
finding Chaz Byrd in the left
flat. Byrd broke two tackles
and barged the remaining
nine yards to the end zone
and a 28-0 lead.
Apalachicola, pinned


deep, went nowhere on its


next drive and following a
punt of 21 yards Port St.
Joe was on offense again at
- again the visitors' 34.
At this point Port St.
Joe had its second offensive
unit in the game though the
only evidence was that the
Sharks needed four plays,
twice that for any other pos-
session to that point, to find
the end zone.
Byrd did the honors,
sweeping left and then cut-
ting back against defensive
pressure to score from the
16 with 11:17 left in the
half.
A little more than a
minute later the referees,
after consulting with the
Apalachicola bench, signaled
for a running clock, and the
visitors responded with their
one sustained drive of the
night.

Apalachicola drove 63 yards
in 10 plays with Jeremy
Terrell completing the march
by taking a dump pass from
McNair and covering six
yards for the touchdown.
The key plays were a 13-
yard bootleg by McNair and
a 26-yard gain by Freddie
Moffett on a sweep.
Port St. Joe added
touchdowns in each of the
final two quarters, Mike
Byrd rushing 17 yards on a


pitch left in the third period
and Farmer busting a trap
play 14 yards with just over
three minutes left.
"We are real pleased to
be where we are," Palmer
said. "We are thrilled for
the kids. They really came
together (after the season-
opening loss to Blountstown)
and played hard all year."
Now the second season
starts, 7:30 p.m. next Friday

but tabled two others.
They accepted a bid
for two Dodge trucks for
the maintenance depart-
ment filling out its fleet
- from a Jacksonville-area
dealer who offered a price
of $13,657 apiece, or over
$27,000 total.
The bid for the two 4x2
trucks, with standard cab,
short wheel base, automatic
transmission and tow pack-
age was more than $6,000
cheaper than the next low-
est bid.
The board, however,
chose to table bids for lights
at the Port St. Joe High
School baseball field and
lockers at Wewahitchka High
School in order to seek clar-
ity on warranty and guaran-
tee issues.


The district is propos-
ing to pay $128,000 for new
lights and poles at the base-
ball field and $25,435 on
the installation of 350 new
lockers at WHS.
The district contin-
ues to wrestle with teaching
vacancies, with three resig-
nations expected this week.
The district is looking
for a first-grade teacher at
Port St. Joe Elementary, a
Social Studies teacher at
Wewahitchka Middle School,
a permanent math teacher
at Port St. Joe High School
with another teacher about
to take maternity leave.
Two more resignations are
expected this week.
"We have our challeng-
es with vacancies," Wilder
said.

County -
side owners making a
larger contribution to the
restoration project.
Highland View resident
Edward Wood, Sr., a Cape
property owner, believed the
bayside contribution was too
great.


F-
" From Pu IA
Property owners in this
area, Wood argued, should
not pay the price for those
who built their houses in the,
sand.
"It tell us in the Bible not
to build there," Wood said.
Most of the speakers


agreed that beach
restoration was a worthy
goal, but disagreed with the
beach advisory committee's
proposed funding method
and accelerated timeline.
Wood's wife, Linda,
stressed that many Cape
property owners are not
residents, and would thus
not be allowed to vote in the
referendum.
Currently, only 72
homes within the project
area are homesteaded.
"Two hundred people
are going to levy the millage
for 7,000 parcels," Wood


noted. "I find an inequality
in that."
Property owners within
the project area were to
receive notice of their
exact tax contribution in
February, a month before
the referendum.
Commissioner Bill
Williams expressed his
concern that the board was
being asked to put a taxing
mechanism in place without
first providing critical
information to the potential
taxpayers.
Several other factors
were also unknown. The


state could provide up to 50
percent of the project's total
costs estimated between
$10-$15 million but only
after the county provided
public access points along
the proposed site.
Commissioner Nathan
Peters, Jr., citing his
concerns over several key
funding issues, passed
the chair to commissioner
Carmen McLemore and
moved to reject the MSTU.
Commissioner Billy
Traylor asked the board to
provide Pickett with guidance
on how to proceed with what

Flying Cross, which he earned
for his heroic exploits in
Vietnam on May 23, 1966.
A member of the 25th
Infantry Division, Seefeldt
was the team leader of an
aircraft recovery crew that
rescued a downed helicopter
from a Ho Bo Woods rice
paddy.
Though his crewmates
had suggested abandoning
the partially submerged
aircraft, Seefeldt had vowed
to fly the helicopter back to
the base.
Using his years of
experience as an airplane
mechanic, he repaired the
damage to' the helicopter's
main rotor system.
While in the Army,
Seefeldt often supervised
the maintenance of his
helicopter. He had lost a
.friend and fellow pilot when
a mechanic failed to tighten
a screw, and learned to trust
the work of his own hands.
As Seefeldt concentrated
on his task, he stood on top
of the helicopter, amid the
crackle of artillery fire.
As he promised, Seefeldt
flew the helicopter back to
the base, arriving just as the


engine ran out of fuel.
His citation honored
Seefeldt's "daring courage
and determination under
fire."
There were, of course,
some lighter moments when
Seefeldt was able to enjoy the
thrill of flying.
A few years before his
arrival in Vietnam, he flew
with the US Army Helicopter
Square Dance Team,
dazzling the crowds at the
International Air Show in
Paris.
The team transformed
their H-13 Sioux helicopters'
bubble cockpits into the faces
of men and women. Seefeldt
placed a top hat on the top
of his cockpit, and coupled,
in flight, with a "female".
helicopter, its skids bearing
a frilly square dance skirt.
As music played in
their ear pieces, the pilots
recreated the do-se-do and
other dances, flying just
close enough to make things
interesting.
While Seefeldt square
danced in the sky, Virginia
stayed at home with the
kids.

A cluster of black and
white photographs tells
the story of Virginia and
Richard Seefeldt's courtship
- a knowing glance, a warm
embrace, a laugh on the
living room sofa.
Gin Fraser first laid eyes
on Dick Seefeldt when she
was in the tenth grade.
Seefeldt was a senior and
riding a motorcycle.
"Who is that?" Virginia
asked a friend.
Virginia caught Seefeldt's
eye later that year. When
her brother came home from
football practice one night,
he spoke the words Virginia
was waiting to hear.
"Dick Seefeldt was asking
about you at practice today,"
he said.
Their courtship began
in study hall, with Virginia
passing love notes behind
her to Seefeldt's friend, who
stowed the notes away in the,
classroom dictionary.
Every day, Seefeldt
asked permission to look up
a word.
After dating off and on
for two years, the couple
got engaged in 1953, just .

Seefeldt called his
foreign-born daughter
"schotzy," the German word
for "sweetheart."
Voyages to Antarctica
In the 29 years Seefeldt
served in the Army, he was
with his family only around
20.
His work often required


time away from home,
a hardship lessened by
Virginia's faithful acceptance
of the sacrifices of Army life.
In 1967, Seefeldtdeparted
with a 13-man Army Aviation
Detachment for Marie Byrd
Land, in western Antarctica.
His job was to escort 15
scientists who were exploring
the region's topography.
With temperatures in
Marie Byrd Land dropping to
38 below, Seefeldt waited for
clear days to fly and kept an
eye on the scientists.

Renourishment

:to approve or disapprove
'spending tax dollars on the
restoration project.
This project has a very
,aggressive timeline with
:the construction phase
'beginning as early as August
-2007. To see the complete
timeline, along with detailed
,information regarding the
:project, before and after
,pictures from other projects
:and funding information,
'pleasevisitwww.savethecape.
'com.
Overall, beach restoration
:projects in the state of
-Florida are performing well.
'Many people are under the
:common misconception that
:restoration project has failed
,if sand is added to the beach
,at a later date. However,
;with few exceptions, this is a
normal and planned stage of
;a managed beach project.
. In keeping with the
'norm, the project will include
i2 phases: restoration and
'maintenance (commonly
'called renourishment).
JThe first phase will involve
extending the beach to a
'width set in the engineering
'study. The second phase
will involve anticipated
-maintenance, or pumping
additional sand on the beach,
approximately every 6 to 8
years.
After construction,
the beach performance is
monitored to decide when
additional sand needs
to be pumped in. Some
beaches perform better
than expected and do not
require renourishment for
'a decade or more. Some
beaches,- particularly in
,the event of severe storm
-damage like that seen 'from
the 2004 hurricane season,
mnay require additional sand
sooner.
Again, the key to the
'process is not only initial
restoration but regular
:maintenance. Just like
:painting the house,
'changing the oil in the car
,or the continued care and
'maintenance of anything of
'value, beaches need periodic
attention. An essential part
jof the restoration plan is to
,anticipate that need and have
'the permitting and money in
,place. .
The recreational,
'environmental and economic
,future of one of the most
:beautiful beaches in the
,country now depends upon
:beach restoration. Our
opportunity to take control
:of that future is upon us. All
'we have to do is reach out
'together and take hold of it.
:Hopefully, we can join dozens
,of other Florida communities
'who have recognized the
.value of their beaches.

Good Soldier -


eye on the scientists.
He believed his
distinguished passengers
looked down on him, were
unimpressed with his skill
as a pilot.
Seefeldt gloried in the
day the tables turned, when
a scientist fell in a crevice
and he air lifted him out.
He had taught the
scientists a lesson in
humility.
During his two tours in
Antarctica, Seefeldt's only
means of communication
home was a ham radio. He
called a woman named Betty,
who patched his call through
to his wife.
Anticipating the phone
calls, which always came
in the middle of the night,
Virginia made a list of
questions. She checked her
questions off the list, saying
"over" after each one.





.'. ^' _


Betty stayed on the
line for the length of the
conversations. When the
talk turned racy, Seefeldt
reminded his wife of the
third-party presence.
"You know Betty's
listening," he said.
A Love of the Black Hawk
In 1972, rival aircraft
manufacturers Sikorsky and
Boeing vied for an exclusive
Army contract to build the
replacement for the UH-1
Series "Huey" helicopter.
As part of the Utility
Tactical Transport Aircraft
System (UTTAS) program,
the two companies presented
their finest offerings:
Sikorsky, the UH-60A;
Boeing, the Vertol YUH-61A.
Both surpassed the
Huey in troop and cargo lift
capacities, both needed to
be tested by the Army's best
pilots.


Enter Seefeldt. As his
counterparts boarded the
Boeing, Seefeldt and another
pilot tested the UH-60A in
climatic hangars at Eglin
Air Force Base. Inside the
hangar, the helicopters and
the resilient Seefeldt were
subjected to a multitude of
weather conditions.
The UH-60A emerged the
winner, and Sikorsky earned
the coveted contract. The
winning helicopter was soon
renamed the Black Hawk,
and production began at the
Sikorsky plant in Stratford,
Conn.
In June of 1977, Seefeldt
was assigned to the Black
Hawk Program Manager's
Office at the Stratford plant.
He conducted flight tests
and approved the helicopters
for shipment to the Army.
On board with the project
at the beginning, Seefeldt
was instrumental in the
development of the Black
Hawk operator's manual.
Seefeldt once described
his affinity for the Black
Hawk to a reporter this way:
"The Black Hawk can be
summed up in one phrase
she's built like a tank and
flies like an eagle."
To his family, he likened
the helicopter to a Cadillac.
With a crew of three, the
Black Hawk could lift an 11-
man, fully-outfitted infantry
squad in most weather


.-, ,


conditions. Its protective
armor could withstand hits
from 23 mm shells.
For his work with the
Black Hawk project, Seefeldt
was named "Army Aviator
of the Year" in 1980 and
accepted the award in
Washington, D.C.
When he retired from the
Army in 1982, Seefeldt did
not stray far from his Black
Hawks.
He stayed on at the
Sikorsky plant for two more
years as a test pilot.
While at home in
Stratford, Virginia received
an alarming phone call from
Sikorsky. A woman told her
that there had been a plane
crash at the plant, the details
of which she would soon hear
on the news.
"I just want to let you
know your husband was
not involved in it," she told
Virginia, and hung up the
telephone. Virginia never
knew who the caller was.
Seefeldt returned home
unscathed that evening.
A Wonderful Life
Virginia never worried
about her husband when
he was in the air. She had
absolute faith in his flying,
knew that if he were to crash,
he would die a happy man.
Her unwavering devotion
to her husband sustained
Virginia throughout their 51-
year marriage. It sustains her
now as she readies herself
for the next chapter.
"Are you listening to us
talk about your life?" she
asks Seefeldt from her seat'


in the living room. She has
closed the scrapbook and is
smiling.
Sunday had been a night
of surprises. Virginia's cousin,
Marlene Scherer, arrived in
town from Janesville. The


Seefeldt unloads a case of beer in Vietnam in 1966. Seefeldt
served two tours in Vietnam, earning the Distinguished Flying
Cross for his war-time bravery.

In high school, Marlene
dated Richard Seefeldt's best
friend, and the two couples
went on many double dates
over the years.
Marlene has recently felt
the pain of losing a husband,
and was there to comfort her
cousin.
Virginia's son Rick made
the trip from Santa Rosa

flew in from Wisconsin. Their
mother told them the end
was near.
The family gathered
at Seefeldt's bedside, one

arrival.

Seefeldt.
"I was born on July 16;
1958. You always called me
your 'schotzy.'" Susan said at
the 2003 surprise party.
Sunday night, she offered
a simpler greeting.
"I'm here dad," she said,;
staring into her father's still
adoring face.
Though ill, Seefeldt had
not forgotten his sweetheart.
"I've been waiting,", he
replied.

Forgotten Gardening


by Kay Kelley
Imagine yourself buried
up to your neck in the sand.
Not just covered up 'like the
kids do at the beach, but really
down there, unable 'to wiggle
more than a couple of fingers
and toes. It's November, so
tlfe sun is pleasantly warm,
but doesn't cook you, and
someone comes by at regular
intervals to give you water
and food.
- Days pass. The food and
water 'intake is regular and
fine, but the elimination, is
getting to be a problem. Plus,
your skin can't breathe, and
since it rains every day your.
skin is clammy and doesn't
feel so good anymore,
More days pass, and you.
are suffocating even though
you can breathe just fine.,
Your skin can't breath, and
gqses are building up inside.
How many more days 'can
yqu.live like this?
This ishowit is forashrub
or a tree when it is planted'
tdb deep, or when. existing
roots" are buried under loads
of fi'U. The roots can't breath,
arid' an important exchange
of gases -from the roots to
the air can't take' place. Soil.
piled around' the base of the
trunk," above the area where'
the .roots flare out, holds
moisture which decays the
tlark and allows pathogens'
tp enter the system of the
plant. It may live like this for
awhile. Eventually, though.
no matter how consistent the


food and water' is applied, the
plant will die.
It has been estimated
.that over eighty.percent, and
some sources say over ninety
percent, of all landscape tree
problems occur underground,
where we can't see whAt's
going 'on. I bring this up
because it is November, and
garden columnists love to
promote this time of- year as
the best time to plant trees
and shrubs. Too 'often they
leave, out the how-to part, and
we rely on planting the way
our grandparents taught our
parents, and their parents
taught them. There's nothing.
wrong with that, except when
scientific research evolves to
clue us in to things our great-
grandparent's generation
didn't know.. The need for
roots to be able to breath. is a
good example.
Location, too, plays a big
part in how we do things, but
there are universal rules of
thumb to follow. We on the
Forgotten Coast are blessed
with sand to dig in, instead of
rock and clay, but the rules
still apply.
When I was 'starting out
in the green industry the
rule of' thumb was to" dig
a ten dollar hole for a fifty
cent 'plant. That amounted
top digging a hole twice as
wide and twice as deep as
the root ball of the plant
you were planting, amending
about one-third of the soil
you dug out of the hole with


everything from compost to
peat moss to cow manure,
and planting so that the top'
of the root ball was exactly
flush with the ground.
Further north of here we
plant a lot of rhododendron
and azaleas, which are in the
rhododendron family.: That's
where I learned (quickly) that
some plants can't tolerate
being planted deeply, and
sometimes, even flush with
the ground was too deep.
There is a mysterious aliment
'called root rot which can
make a person regret being
in the landscape business,
especially- if you don't
understand what causes the
'ailment. We would 'do all
kinds of things to promote.
good drainage under these
plants, layering .the bottom
of the holes .with gravel,
pine bark, even pine cones.
Sometimes we would just put
a big rock in the bottom of
the ,hole and set the root ball
right on top of it; and plant
it that way. Eventually we
began planting with several,
inches of the root ball above
grade, taking care to mulch
well around the exposed
roots, and that worked much
better. '
Not all' plants are as
susceptible to root rot as the
rhododendron family;, thank
goodness, but research still
proves that' plants' need to
root close to the soil's surface.
,Roots grow laterally across
the ground, arid most roots,
even the roots of big tfees,,
are within the top eighteen
inches of soil.
Current planting 'advice


has changed to recommend
digging holes a couple of
inches shallower than the
depth of the root ball, and
two or three .times as wide.
The amended soil (IF the soil
is amended, and that's a
whole other issue) is placed
around, but not under, the
root ball. That way, a newly
planted shrub or tree will
appear to stick up out of
the ground a bit. Mulch, at
the recommended depth of
three to five inches, prevents
the above-ground roots from
drying out, and allows for a
thin layer over the root ball,
itself.
Wake up! You are not
buried in the sand, and your
skin. is not slowly rotting
away- You can breath deeply
and easily, (and gratefully,)
just like the tree you are
about to plant. Grow, and
thrive

Florida Department Of Health Recognizes November As Lung Cancer Awareness Month


-The Florida Department
of Health (DOH) officials
recognize November as Lung
Cancer Awareness Month.
"During this month, we
ask all Floridians to take an
active role in their health,
by encouraging all smokers
to consider breaking the
addiction for life," said DOH


ALERT! Jury Duty
Scam Could Lead to
Identity Theft
Has anyone called
recently letting you know
that you missed jury duty?
Warning, it could be a scam.
Clever thieves continue to
deceive innocent victims
with intentions of stealing
an individual's identity, and.
the jury duty scam is one of
the latest.
Other states are report-
ing that a person claim-
ing to be a Clerk's Office
employee is calling innocent
people telling them that: a
jury summons in their name
has gone unanswered, and


Secretary for Health M. Rony
Frangois, M.D., M.S.P.H.,
Ph.D.
According to the
American Cancer Society,
there will be approximately
172,570, new cases of lung
cancer in the United States
in 2005; about 163,510
people will die of this


that an arrest warrant has
been issued. The'caller then
suggests that he or she can
verify the arrest warrant if
the unsuspecting person will
provide some personal iden-
tifying information, such
as social security number,
birth : date, or credit card
number. Much of this infor-
mation can easily be used to
commit identity theft.
"While this scam has
not reached Gulf County,
if you ever experience this
type of call, hang up and call
my office immediately. The
. Clerk's Office .does not call
summoned jurors. Please
do not give out your per-


disease. About six out of 10
people with lung cancer die
within a year of finding, out
they have lung cancer and
between seven and eight
people will die within two
years of diagnosis.
Although lung cancer is
one of the most preventable
cancers, it still is of grave


sonal information to anyone
you don't know."
It is only natural that a
person may be inclined to
give out personal informa-
tion under the threat of .an
arrest, but in reality, court
officials will never request
personal information over
the telephone: This scam
has been reported in many
states, and many more inno-
cent victims could be at risk
if they are not aware of this
threat.
As always, if you have
any questions, you may con-
tact my office at (850) 229-
6113.

concern for the DOH and for
all Floridians. According to
Florida's statewide cancer
registry, the Florida Cancer
Data System, there were
a total-of 14,003 new lung
and bronchus cancers
diagnosed in 2003, the most
current data year available.
The total number of deaths
due to lung and bronchus
cancer in 2003 was 11,866
as reported by the Office
of Vital Statistics. Lung
and bronchus cancer still
remains the leading cancer
for newly diagnosed cases*
and deaths, excluding skin
cancers.
Smoking is by far the
leading risk factor for lung
cancer. The Campaign for
Tobacco Free Kids reports
that nearly every adult who
smokes (almost 90 percent),
* took his or her first puff at or
before 18-years-old. Other
risk. factors include cigar


and pipe use, secondhand
smoke, radon, asbestos,
pollution, lung disease and
a personal history. There is
no evidence that smoking
low tar cigarettes reduces
the risk of lung cancer.
Individuals need to be
aware of .associated health
complications with smoking
such as chronic lung disease,
coronary heart disease and
stroke as well as problems
with pregnancy and birth.
Symptoms associated
with lung cancer include: a
cough that does not go away;
chest pain; coughing up
blood;' shortness of breath
and recurring bronchitis or
pneumonia.
The Florida
Comprehensive Cancer
Control Program's mission is
to reduce the burden ofcancer
in Florida on individuals,
families and communities by
improving communication,


coordination and
collaboration .among public
and private organizations
at local, regional and state
levels. For more information,
please visit DOH's Web site
at www.doh.state.fl.us and
click on the subject line to
* highlight cancer., The best
way to prevent lung cancer
is to not start smoking,
quit smoking if you already
have and avoid people who
do smoke. For additional
information, contact the
National Cancer Institute at
1-800-4-CANCER or call the
Florida Quit-For-Life Line,
which helps smokers who
want to quit smoking and
live their lives; the call is
toll-free, 1-877-U-CAN-NOW

Gallagher Offers Comprehensive Solutions to Better Protect

Homeowners and Strengthen Property Insurance Market


Tom Gallagher, Florida's
chief financial officer, today
outlined several proposals
for strengthening Florida's
property insurance market
and better protecting
homeowners and
condominium unit owners
from financial devastation
after a hurricane strikes.
Gallagher also gave his
support for federal solutions
being advocated by gov. Jeb
Bush and key congressional
leaders.
"Eight castrophic
storms in 15 months have
caused more than $32
billion in insured damages,
and Florida homeowners
will bear the brunt of this
burden if we don't act now
to implement solutions to
prevent an insurance market
meltdown," said Gallagher,
whose office has received
nearly. 600,000. phone calls
from storm victims in the
last year. "It will take a
comprehensive approach to
tackle 'the challenges that we
face as a state."'
As part wof a multi-
faceted package to address
insurance issues, Gallagher
advocated both federal
and state solutions. At the
federal level, Gallagher is.,
urging Congress to establish
a national catastrophe
fund, for which. he lobbied.
following Hurricane Andrew
in 1992, and to create
individual Catastrophic
Savings' Accounts (CSAs) to
allow homeowners to save
tax-free for deductible and
storm recovery costs. He 'is
also recommending Congress
pass U.S. Representative
Mark Foley's legislation to
allow the :accumulation of
tax-deferred catastrophic
reserves by insurers.
"Catastrophic Savings
Accounts ; would give
Floridians the opportunity


to 'save money tax-free to
pay insurance deductibles
and 'uninsured losses, as
well as to strengthen their
homes against hurricanes,"
Gallagher said. "Money
would grow over time to
better protect Floridians
from the financial threat of
hurricanes."
On the state level,
Gallagher asked the
Legislature to earmark the
sales tax revenue collected
from hurricane recovery
to help offset assessments
against homeowners.
Gallagher also called for
standardizing Florida's
building code statewide and
capping coverage of homes
at $ 1 million or less in
Citizens Property Insurance
Corporation, the state's
insurer of last resort.
"Floridians pay millions,
in sales tax to recover from
catastrophes. They should
not be .taxed twice," said
Gallagher.
Gallagher is also
initiating expansion of
his mediation program to
co;ndominum communities.
The mediation program,
established following multiple
hurricanes in 2004, has been
utilized by more than 11,000
homeowners in disputes with
their insurance companies,
with a 92 percent settlement
rate.
Since last' year, the
Department of Financial
Services has assisted nearly


600,000 Floridians with
questions and requests for
help after the hurricanes. The
Department has advocated
on behalf of nearly 61,000
consumers struggling with
their insurance companies.
Eighty-eight percent, of those
complaints were resolved in
favor of consumers, a total of
54,000 families helped.
Additionally, the
Department, working with
Governor Bush and the
Legislature, reimbursed $43
million to hurricane victims
burdened with multiple
hurricane deductibles.
Gallagher also led the
successful fight to eliminate
multiple storm deductibles
during one hurricane
season.
This past spring, the
Department hosted seven
town hall meetings across
the state where. thousands'
of Floridians were provided"
direct on-site help with
resolving their insurance
claims.
"Small homeowners
throughout the state
should not, have to bear the
burden of billions of dollars
in hurricane damages,"
Gallagher said. "If we' act
now, we can make sure that.
property insurance remains
available and affordable.

Covenant Hospice Offering Free


Advance Care Planning Workshop


Covenant Hospice is
offering a free Advance
Care Planning Workshop on
Nov. 14 from 5:30 p.m. to
8:30 p.m. at Gulf Franklin
Center. Advance Care
Planning (ACP) is a process
to help extend your rights
- through documentation
that, a guides your, medical
care should you become
unable to communicate your
wishes.
This documentation
consists of two primary
concepts: devising a living
will and designating a health
care surrogate. Theworkshop
will be held in Room A101.
Jason White, Esquire of
McConnaughhay, Duffy,
Coonrod, Pope & Weaver
and Steve Southerland II, of
Southerland Family Funeral
Home will be keynote


speakers.
"Less than 25% of
Americans over the age
of 18 enact these rights
in writing," said Mike
McLaughlin, community
educator for Covenant
Hospice. "We believe advance
care planning is for everyone
- regardless of age or health
status. It's important to
make your wishes known
so loved ones will not have
to endure the pressure of
deciding your health care."
Participants will have
the opportunity to complete
a living will during the
workshop, which addresses
not only one's medical
wishes, but also personal,
emotional and spiritual
needs as well. Having this
documentation can reduce
conflicts and alleviate fears


about medical intervention
and loss of dignity.
Seating is limited and
registration is encouraged. A
light supper will be provided.
Call 913-3208.

Watch and Pray
Staying faithful to Jesus
Seems harder each day.
If you don't read the
Word and stay prayed up,
It's easy to fall by the
way.
Even the best fall now
and then,
Judas betrayed Him and
all the others ran.
The spirit is willing,
But the flesh is weak.
Stay in tune with God,
As His Will you seek.
Satan knows our weak-
ness,
But God does too.
When we stay close to
God,
The Spirit will lead us
through.
It's good to have fellow
believers
Help us to watch and
pray.
If Jesus needed it before
His death,
Surely we need it today.

The Federal Emergency
[Ianagement Agency's (FEMA)
Gflod hazard maps are one of
mile essential tools for flood
mitigation in the United
states. Unfortunately, many
Of these maps have become
outdated, especially in high
gowth and development areas
pcluding Florida. FEMA has
established a broad goal of


Florida's


Embarks of Efforts to Update Flood Hazard Mapping


medernizing flood hazard
maps nationwide. In lieu of the
destructive hurricanes that
have swwept over the state
since 2004, accurate flood

important for identification of
floodplain and flood hazard

Click It


or Ticket It


.:The Port St. Joe Police
Department Prepares for
IHoliday Traffic High Visibility
Sfety Belt Enforcement over
Thanksgiving Florida's Click
It or Ticket campaign brings
attention to the needless
deaths that occur on our
roadways each year during
the Thanksgiving holiday
because motorists fail to use
their safety belts. The Port
St. Joe Police Department
is joining law enforcement
across the state in an effort to
save lives this holiday season
by reminding everyone
to buckle up. This traffic
safety initiative will run from
november 18th to November
?0th to include the busy
Thanksgiving holiday travel
period. Traditionally, the
Thanksgiving holiday period
-s 6ne of the heaviest traveled
;lmes across the U.S. The
result is a significant increase
in traffic crashes. Last year
in Florida alone, during the
same time period as this
year's campaign, 77 people
died in motor vehicle related
trashes and over half of those
falities were not using their
safety belts. "Thanksgiving is
Sjoyous holiday, but it is also
ne of the deadliest on our
alwayss," said Chief James
jersey. "Too many people are
being killed in traffic crashes
because they just didn't take
i few seconds to put on their
safety belt. Children and
young adults learn best by
ample, and we all need to
ake sure they see the right
example."
; During the most Yecent
Plick It or Ticket Florida
mobilization, held earlier
this year over the Memorial
pay holiday period, state and
local law
enforcement agencies
Issued almost 37,000 safety
belt citations. Although law
enforcement agencies across
e state participate in the
P-lick It or Ticket Florida
mobilizations because the
Initiative heightens safety belt
Pse awareness surrounding
times of the year with high
traffic related death rates,
Ihese agencies enforce the
safety belt law every day
Because they
know it is a matter of life
br death. "The Click It or
WIicket Florida enforcement
knd education campaign
sends a clear message that
safety belts and child safety
teats when used properly


save lives," said Chief Hersey.
"We know this is true because
unfortunately we must
respond to fatal crashes. This
is why we enforce the law and
issue citations to unbuckled
motorists." The Port St. Joe
Police Department and law
enforcement agencies across
the state, with support from
the Florida Department of
Transportation, are joining
together to remind everyone
this holiday season to please
buckle up. Safety Belts -
Myths vs. Facts
MYTH: I might be saved
if I'm thrown clear of a car
collision. FACT: You are 25
times more likely to be killed
in a crash when thrown from
a vehicle. The force of an
impact can throw you 150
feet... 15 car lengths! Safety
belts also prevent you from
smashing your head into
the windshield, which could
cause spinal damage or even
death.
MYTH: A safety belt will
trap me inside my vehicle. I
won't be able to get out of the
vehicle if it catches fire or is
submerged in water. FACT:
Less than 1 out of 200 traffic
related incidents involve fire
or water submersion. Even
so, you are' much more
likely to be knocked out and
rendered unconscious if you
are not using a safety belt.
Your chances of escape are
better while using a safety
belt.
MYTH: I don't need a
safety belt when driving at
slow-speeds or
on short trips. FACT:
All driving is dangerous.
Fatalities have been recorded
as slow as 12 mph for
occupants not buckled up.
Most crashes occur at speeds
less than 40 mph. Of all
crashes, 75 percent occur
within 25 miles from home.
MYTH: Drivers in air bag
equipped vehicles don't need
to use safety belts. FACT: Air
bags provide supplemental
protection in frontal crashes,
but unbuckled motorists can
either slide under them, or
their head can come into
full contact with the airbag,
resulting in massive head
injuries or even decapitation.
In addition, air bags will not
help in a side or rear impact
or rollover crash. Motorists
should use a safety belt for
protection in all types of
crashes.


was designated by FEMA
in December 2002 as a
Cooperating Technical
Partner (CTP) for rhe State of
Florida in northwest Florida.
As a CTP, the NWFWMD has
begun to work collaboratively
with FEMA to create and
maintain accurate, up-to-
date flood hazard data for
the communities served in
Northwest Florida. This
includes the sixteen county
areas of Bay,Calhoun,
Escambia, Franklin, Gadsden
Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Leon,
Liberty, Okaloosa, Santa
Rosa, Wakulla, Walton and
Washington counties and
the westernmost portion of
Jefferson County. Floodplain
management and protection
is a primary area of
responsibility and a priority
as part of the District's
mission.
The FEMA Map
Modernization program,
"Map Mod", builds upon
recommendations of the
Technical Mapping Advisory
Council articulated in 2000.
Congress approved a $1
billion investment to bring
flood hazard maps up-to-date
nationwide over a five year
period. The NWFWMD vision
for the Map Modernization
initiative is to provide more
accurate and complete flood
hazard information for
counties and communities
within the District. As part
of this work, the NWFWMD
has embarked in an endeavor
to map and convert flood
insurance rate maps (FIRMs)
into digital format covering
all sixteen counties in the
NWFWMD. This includes the
collection of new, accurate
elevation data, new flood
studies, and will result
in updated digital flood
insurance rate map panels
(DFIRMs) meeting FEMA's
latest multi-hazard flood map
modernization standards.
Efforts through other water
resources and emergency
management programs by the
local government, District,
State and Federal programs
are also under way to obtain
mor accurate and detailed
elevation imagery in a digatal
format.

the new maps is a key because
they are easily accessed by
the public .and displayed on
the web. The web displays
are capable of showing actual
earth images and topography
with the flood zones and the
flood hazard information as
map overlays. Residents and
property owners wil be able
to view the areas mapped as
flood hazard zones with a very
clear aerial image of the earth
along with the structures they
live in. The web based digital
flood maps will also allow for
easy updates as development
changes occur. With the
updated DFIRMs and the
District's ongoing emphasis
on protection and acquisition
of flood prone areas, the
flood protection goals and
the nonstructural floodplain
management strategy of the
NWFWMD will be enhanced.
FEMA funding for flood
studies is limited. The
objective of the CTP program
is to leverage available
funding to obtain more and
better multi-hazard mapping
with the available resources.
Currently, the FEMA Regional
Office in Atlanta manages
Federal funding through a
Cooperative agreement with
NWFWMD. This funding will
be used to remap all of the
16-county area of the District
in a digital format that will
become accessible through the
Internet and other printable
media. The NWFWMD is
providing funding and staff
resources to leverage this
funding. The NWFWMD is
also relying on the services of
county and city governments
and the data and information
resources they have as "in-
kind" leverage to assist the
District in obtaining federal
funding.
Map Mod touches a broad
stakeholder community who
will see different benefits.
Community planners and
local officials will gain a
greater understanding of
the flood hazards and risks
that affect their community.
Builders and developers will
have detailed information
for making well-informed
decisions on where to build


and how they can affect flood
zones. Insurance agents and
lendinginstitutionswill clearly
understand map changes and
what they need to do. Home
and business owners will be
better informed about their
current flood risks.
Overall, the program will
provide: better and more
accurate floodplain mapping
service to northwest
Florida communities;
more protection of water
resources from adverse
impacts; more accurate and
better knowledge to prevent
development disasters;


the data necessary to allow
for long-term sustainable
growth; and better public
access to updated floodplain
mapping service to northwest
Florida communities;
more protection of water
resources from adverse
impacts; more accurate and
better knowledge to prevent
development disasters; the
data necessary to allow for
long-term sustainable growth;
and better public access to
updated floodplain ad hazard
information.

S# AR


By Jae Ashabranner
As most of Port St. Joe
already knows, last week
was PSJ 'Homecoming 2005-
2006. It was a week of mixed
emotions and craziness
throughout our high school.
According to the
students, the best part of
homecoming week is missing
classes for the pep rally, for
decorating doors and for the
homecoming assembly. The
other popular favorite of
homecoming week is dressing
a certain way for school each
day.
With the convenience of
it being Halloween, Monday
was dedicated to costumes.
Students came to school
wearing everything one could
think of to wear, ranging
from Cinderella to vampires.
Awards were given for the
scariest, cutest, and best all
around.
For Tuesday, the SGA
decided to have "color wars."
Each class was designated a
color to represent its class.
The ninth grade was found in
brown, tenth in red, eleventh
in green, and the seniors were
in orange. Winners were also
announced from each class
for the one with the most of
his or her class' color.
Wednesday was dedicated
to the hunters of PSJ. It
was titled "Camo Day." The
halls instantly turned into
woods. During "Camo Day"
the student body played a
game called "Mr. Irresistible".
The object of the game was
for the girls not to talk to
the boys. The boy that had
the most girls speak to him
during Wednesday won the
title of "Mr. Irresistible".
Congratulations to Jeremy
Couch and Henry Kirby for
their new names.
Cops and Robbers
Day was on Thursday, and
winners were also announced
for the best dressed. Tom
Boone and Jeremy Couch


received this award.
Homecoming Day was
"Spirit Day." Students
showed their school pride
by wearing purple, gold, and
white. Painted bodies of
purple and gold and sprayed
hair were among the favorite.
The seniors showed their
seniority by wearing togas
and crowns, led by Jenna
Chesser. Jenna received the
"Spirit Day" award.
After' a black-out pep
rally, school was dismissed at
12:00, and the parade began
at 3:30 p.m. on Reid Avenue.
Finally it was time for the
Homecoming game. Kickoff
was at 7:30 p.m. and the court
was presented at half time.
The 205-2006 Homecoming
Court consisted of Terilyn
Strain, Jenna Chesser,
Michelle Perrin, Nicole
Ford, Emily Raffield, Anna
McFarland, Carmen Hill, Kelly
Geoghagan, Savannah Garth,
Haley Watford and Jessica
Mock. Congratulations to
all of the girls and to the
football team for a big win
over Apalachicola, 49-6. An
extended congratulations goes
to the Homecoming Queen,
Miss Kelly Geoghagan.
Seniors remember
$50 due to Mrs. Alcorn by
November 20 for senior trip.
NHS will be sponsoring
a blood drive November 9
from 9a.m. to 2 p.m. Anyone
who is 110 pounds and over
17 may donate. Donations
from the community are
welcome.
Although it has been a
fun week, it is time to get
back to classes and get ready
.for some regular school days.
Seniors remember we don't
have many regular school
days left; let's make the best
of it!

FSU Gives The Gift of Less Stress


FSU Panama City
Professor Authors Book on
Stress-Relief
The problem arises every
Christmas. What should
you give the person who
has everything? You. might
try taking something away:
stress. FSU Panama City
professor Stan A. Lindsay,
Ph.D. has authored a new
book on stress-relief, The
Seven Cs of Stress, published
by Say Press.com. Dr. Lindsay
states: "Stress is like a
balloon." The more you inflate
it, the more likely it is to
explode. You need to relieve the
pressure prior to the
explosion. According to
Lindsay, the stress-relief
process has two steps:
1. Diagnose which
stressor is causing the
problem, and
2. Open the appropriate
relief valve.
First, you should diagnose
the cause of your stress. There
are, according to Dr. Lindsay,


only seven basic causes of
stress. Lindsay calls these
seven inflators or stressors
"the seven Cs of stress." Each
stressor begins with the letter
C. Community stress is
what you feel when you need
to get along with other
people. Competence stress
occurs whenever you
attempt something you
feel incompetent about
completing. Confusion stress
arises when you feel lost.
Conscientious stress happens
when you have violated your
moral code. Corporal stress
is any physical stress of the
body, as used in the
phrase "corporal
punishment." Chrono stress
(or time stress) comes as you
try to meet deadlines. Cash
stress is money stress; your
wants and needs are too great
for your bank balance.
Once you have diagnosed
the stressor, open the
appropriate relief valve.

Faith Christian School


Operation Christmas
Child is underway.
Information has been
sent home as to what
to purchase and how to
prepare a shoe box. The
filled shoe boxes, or extra
items (with a check for $5
to defray the international
shipping costs), are due
on Wednesday, Nov. 16.
Please bring the boxes to
the library. If you have any
questions, contact Heather
Smith through the school
office at 229-6707.
Since 1993, Samaritan's
Purse has distributed
millions of shoe box gifts.
These boxes are filled with
clothes, hygiene items,
school supplies, toys, and
snacks. They are also sent
with Christian literature
(in the language of the
recipient) and the prayers of
countless Christians. As a
matter of fact, the students
at FCS will have a special
prayer assembly before the
boxes are sent to our local
distribution center.


Operation Christmas
Child serves no less, than
95 nations. This year's
overall goal is to send 7.8
million shoe boxes around
the world. The goal for our
contribution is to collect at
least 250 filled shoe boxes.
These boxes will be sent
to hurting boys and girls
who live in war-torn areas,
in regions of poverty and
disease, and in lands which
have experienced natural,
disasters, including the
hurricane ravished Gulf
Coast states.
Please check out
the website at www.
samaritanspurse org
for more information.
There you can find what
can and cannot be sent,
other programs, in which
Samaritan's Purse is
involved, and different
ways you can help get the
message of God's love to
the world.


stress is time management. For
cash stress, you need financial
planning. For confusion
stress, try organizing or asking
questions. For corporal stress,
you might see your physician.
To relieve conscientious stress,
you should more closely follow
your moral code.
Practice goes a long way
toward alleviating competence
stress. There are several
ways of relieving community
stress.
The Seven Cs of Stress
is the sixth book Dr. Lindsay
has authored. He has written
books about Persuasion,
Sales, Business Proposals,
Public Speaking, and the
New Testament Book of


Revelation. His scholarly
books grace the shelves
of world-class university
libraries, such as Harvard,
Yale, Princeton, Duke, and
Stanford. This book, however,
is written for all audiences
since everyone experiences
stress. In an unsolicited e-
mail Julie King wrote: "I was
hooked I read the entire
book that evening.. I found
the book full of great
insight written in a way
that keeps the reader
interested."
The book is available
at the FSU-PC Bookstore
in Panama City or online at
http://www.saypress.com.

year, $2.3-million contract
by the U.S. Department of
Education to enable it to
participate in a newly formed
National Comprehensive
Center for Instruction in
Reading, Math, and Science.
The national center will work
to develop research-based
materials and training for use
by Regional Comprehensive
Centers that will directly serve
school districts and state
departments of education.
The goal is to help all U.S.
schools improve instruction
to meet the requirements
of the federal No Child Left
Behind Act of 2001.
Within the national center,
the FCRR will focus on the
development of materials and
trainingto support instruction
in reading from kindergarten
through 12th grade both
for normally developing
students and for students in
special education. In fact, a
significant part of the work
of the national center will be
to help schools develop more
effective methods for working
with students with disabilities.
One of the FCRR's partners,
the University of Texas, is
charged with coordinating
this part of the effort, and
the FCRR will work with that
university to provide guidance
to schools in teaching reading
to students with various
cognitive or social handicaps.
"We are excited about
this opportunity to extend
our work to improve literacy
instruction to the national
level, and we are grateful for
the very high quality of our
partnersinthenationalcenter,"
said, Joseph K. Torgesen,
a professor of psychology
and education at FSU who
serves as the FCRR's director.
Assisting Torgesen at the
FCRR is Marcia Kosanovich,
an associate professor with


FSU's Learning Systems
Institute who will 'serve as
the deputy director for the
instructional center's work
within the FCRR.
The FCRR worked with
the University of Texas,
the University of Oregon,
the University of Houston,
Stanford University and
RMC Corporation to submit
a successful application
to operate the National
Comprehensive Center for
Instruction in Reading,
Math, and Science for the
next five years: RMC will
provide overall coordination
of the activities among the
university-based partners.
"I'm delighted that
FSU has been given this
opportunity to increase the
national scope and breadth
of our work with schools to
improve reading instruction,"
said Laura Hassler, director
of the Leairnng ,,,Sjyem's
Institute. "In addition to its
many advances in scientific
research, FSU is at the
forefront in the growing field
of educational research. The
USDOE contract will allow us
to break new ground in terms
of developing methods for
improving children's reading
skills."
The Florida Center for
Reading Research (www.
fcrr.org) was established in
2002 as a cornerstone of
Gov. Jeb Bush's 'Just Read,
Floridal" initiative to have all
schoolchildren in .the state
reading at their grade level
by the year 2012. For the
next three years, the center
will focus its efforts primarily
on improving the reading
skills of K-3 students under
President Bush's "Reading
First Initiative," which is
aimed at helping the country's
youngest students 'improve
their reading skills.

DIRECTING MANY
ROLES!

You wouldn't choose a surgeon
to diagnose your car's engine.
Nor would you ask your accoun-
tant for a physical exam. Every
professional specializes in a dif-
ferent field of knowledge.
Buying or selling a home
requires the services of several
professionals. The first may
be your accountant, who can
explain the tax implications of a
real estate transaction.
Your attorney also plays an
important role, researching the
title to the property you are pur-
chasing, uncovering any pos-
sible flaws, and assuring you of
receiving a good and marketable
title.
You may also need a surveyor,
since mortgage lenders usually
require a physical survey of a
property's boundaries. Licensed
surveyors ensure that you


Barefoot Properties
receive tile to the exact property
for which you contracted.
So what role do real estate
prolessionals play mn a prop-
erty transaction? They act as
a marketing agent for sellers,
developing strategies to identify
and attract likely buyers for the
property.
For buyers, real estate agents
provide a variety of services:
suggesting lenders, research-
ing available homes, and set-
ting appointments to show
property. Once' a contract is
produced, they oversee the clos-
ing activities and coordinate the
roles of the other professionals
involved.
Real estate agents will not givq;
you legal or accounting advice;
nor attempt to survey your prop-
erty, but they will provide a wide
range of services to those plan-
ning to buy or sell real estate.


Thinking of selling? Call for
a free consultation. Wayne

Education Foundation Awards Mini Grants


The Education
Foundation of Gulf County,
Inc. is a broadly based
non-profit community
organization whose purpose
is exclusively educational and
charitable. The Foundation,
since its inception iM 1988,
has secured and distributed
contributions -from
individuals, corporations,
governmental entities,
arid other foundations to
benefit Gulf County's public
education system. This year
The Education Foundation
received generous
donations from the St. Joe
Community Foundation,
the Tapper Foundation and
Progress Energy. Without
their support and interest
we would not have the
opportunity to enhance
the Gulf County Education
System. Each year the
Foundation gives Gulf County
teachers and administrators
an opportunity to compete


for mini-grant funding to
enrich and improve student
achievement.
Over the last four years,
the Foundation has awarded
over $51,000 in mini-grants
for Gulf County school
enhancements. This year
Port St. Joe Elementary
received over $5,753.75 in
mini-grant funding. The
learning initiatives that
received funding and the
corresponding teachers
are as follows: The "Do-To-
Learn" grant, written by
Margaret Elmer, will provide
21 backpacks filled with
leisure learning activities.
These backpacks will go
home with children who need
to practice learning skills.
Tonya Plair and Lois Byrd
both wrote grants to improve
the accelerated reading and
leap pad programs in their
first grade classrooms. Cindy
Phillips once again wrote
a grant that enables every


student in the third grade to
build rockets, learn about the
history of flight, and visit the
naval museum in Pensacola.
This grant in particular was
funded by Progress Energy,
because of the math and
science learning initiatives
that will be enhanced due
to this project. The fourth
grade teachers received a
grant to enable the fourth
grade students to visit the
Apalachicola Estuarine
Research Reserve Center.
Wewahitchka
Elementary received
$2498.34 in educational
grant funding for a wonderful
grant written by Cameron
Totman. This grant, entitled
"Dramatically Different
Readers", will provide high-
interest plays, poems, and
other literature to build
reading fluency through
programs like Reader's
Theater.

Guardsmen and Reservists.


The general information
about PTSD may also be

ees.

nents of effective PTSD ther-

writing skills, and Cindy Belin
received funding to support
the middle school's Positive
Behavior Support Project.
The aim of this project is to
'build effective environments
in which positive behavior is
more effective than problem
behavior so that academic
success can be achieved.
Wewahitchka Middle
School received the majority of
the grant funding, $7,570.82,
due to the six dynamic grants
written by Anita Askew and
Debbie Gerber. These grants
will provide a wide range of
reading materials, including
accelerated reading books
and disks, Visual Mnemonics,
QUICKREADS, Scholastic
and Newberry Award Winner
Books, and many others.

books on the SSYRA list, as
well as select titles for two
book clubs.
All of the mini-grants

of Gulf County students:\

and of the teachers and
administrators thatrequested
them.
