Young Scientist Wins Big at State


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
Eighth-grader Rebecca Furr was still giddy from her first-place
overall finish at the Port St. Joe Middle School science fair when a
dark shadow fell over her victory.
When she inquired about the location of the regional science
fair, she was told that
the Chipola Science
and Engineering
Fair disbanded two '
years ago, leaving
Gulf County students
without a regional SCIENCE
competition.
Furr was crushed.
She believed her
solar energy project,
"Solar vs. Solar, Which
Form?" had real
potential; she hoped it
would carry her all the
way to state.
Not content to let
his daughter's hopes

Plein Air Painters to Capture Forgotten Coast on Canvas


By Marie Logan
Star Staff Writer
It is not often we see an area immortalized
Sin painting anymore, but the Forgotten Coast
will soon be captured on canvas, as the
nationally renowned plein air painters arrive
this month and we all can watch.
From May 12-21. more than 20
professionally acclaimed artists, wielding
brushes and palettes of color, will be painting
the rapidly disappearing landscapes and
lifestyles of Gulf and Franklin Counties.
The event is presented by the Gulf Alliance
for Local Arts (GALA) and supported by the St.
Joe Company.
"Plein air painters have been the activists
,of our country since the early 1800's," said
.Richard Carroll, one of the event's organizers.
"'They were the equivalent of 'tree huggers' in
the earlier years.
"With this gathering, people in our area
.--will be getting the 'creme de la creme' of
artists painting along the Forgotten Coast.
and our local residents will get first chance to
purchase these paintings at the final events."
Plein air comes from the French meaning
"open air," and. originated in. 19th century
Europe at a time when the countryside
was more accessible, paint tubes had been
invented, and artists were "'trusting their own
vision in finding truth in nature," according
S to Carroll.
S-These artists, many of whom became
known as Impressionists, began experi men ting
with the changing quality of light throughout
the day. True plein air painting is done on
location, capturing the feel of the moment,
no matter the conditions. Most artists agree
this is the true test of skill, as it requires
complete confidence in placement of color
and brushwork in a short amount of time. If
the sun has set, in most cases the painting is
done.
Carroll said the aim of each painter is
to produce at -least two paintings per day,.
painting from daybreak to sunset, and in
some cases, into the night.
"We have actually had some paintings
turned in with 'no-see-ums' on them,"
he laughed. Some plein air painters, he
said, actually paint at night from available
moonlight, and their paintings literally have a
blue cast to them.
s. "The total focus of this style of painting
is the effect of air and environment and

things change everything about painting."
According to Carroll, the influx of plein
air painters will be a yearly event for at least
the next five years, in an effort to capture the
uniqueness of the area before it completely.
falls to encroaching development.
Coming to the area from across the
nation, the artists will paint on location in
Apalachicola, Cape San Blas, Indian. Pass,
Mexico Beach, Port St. Joe, WindMark Beach
and Wewahitchka, every day from May 12 to
20.
The public, especially local residents,
is encouraged to watch them paint and ask
questions during the process, between 8:00
a.m. and 4:00 p.m. E.T. daily.
Maps of all painters' locations for the
week will be available in local restaurants,

Early FCAT



Scores Solid

By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
The early returns indicate an upward
trend for Gulf County Schools.
The first two rounds of scores from the
annual Florida Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT) showed some challenges for district
public school officials but also bolstered any
argument that local schools are advancing
students up the learning curve.
Scales tipped one direction by less-than-
spectacular fourth-grade writing scores were
balanced by gains in writing in grades eight
and 10 and by third-grade reading and math
scores which were among the best in the
region and state.
The FCAT is given to students grades three
through 10 each year. Consisting of reading,
writing, math and science, the test provides
the foundation for the formula by which state
education officials grade individual schools.
The writing scores the writing portion,
also known as Florida Writes!, is administered
only in grades four, eight and 10 -were released
by the Florida Department of Education last
week.
Scores for the third-grade math .and
reading portions of the test third-grade
being a bright line for academic retention
and summer school requirements as well as
results of high school students retaking the
test were released this week.
"We have a lot to be proud of," said
Superintendent of Schools Tim Wilder. "We
have a good start toward our formula for
school grades."
The remainder of the FCAT results is
expected later this month, with school grades
likely to be issued shortly thereafter. School
grades impact individual school funding as
well as state mandates on reading programs
and other remediation efforts.
The bitter pill in the early results is found
in the fourth-grade writing scores, though as
Wilder noted, it is not an issue for the fourth-
grade teachers alone, but the district and
schools to address writing curriculum and
teaching methods in early grades.
On the scoring scale I through 5 -
district fourth-graders scored an average of
3.2, with Wewahitchka Elementary slightly
ahead of that mark at 3.5 and Port St. Joe
Elementary slightly behind at 3.0.
Those marks, individually 'or in total,
however, are well back of the state average of
3.9 and put .Gulf County schools well down
in the lower third of the state's 67 school
districts.
"When you are that far behind the state,
there are things we have to change in the way
we address writing," Wilder said.
Supervisor for Testing Sue Gannon noted
that new writing .curriculum was already
scheduled for introduction at both county
elementary schools next year, making writing
curriculum uniform countywide.
Whatever heartburn was caused by the
fourth-grade scores, though, was somewhat
alleviated by the gains shown by students
in the two higher grades taking the FCAT
writing.
District eighth-graders averaged a 3.9
score in writing, which was essentially right at
the state average of 4.0. Port St. Joe middle-
schoolers hit the state average of 4.0, while in
Wewahitchka the average score was 3.9.
The trend was similar in 1Oth grade, where
Port St. Joe High students averaged a 4.0 while
Wewahitchka High students averaged 3.8; the
state and district average an identical 3.9.
But tracked across grades and years,

students at both ends of
the county showed gains in
writing.
For example,
Wewahitchka fourth-graders
averaged 3.2 in 2000, a 3.8
as eighth-graders four years
later and 3.8 as high school
sophomores this year.
A similar arc is found in
Port St. Joe, where students
advanced from a 3.0 average
as fourth-graders' in 2000 to
a 3.6 as eighth-graders to a
4.0 this year as 10"h-graders.


Nearly identical tracks
are found when comparing
fourth-graders of four years
ago and their scores this year
as eighth-graders.
"We've made gains
between fourth grade and
eighth grade, there is a trend
there," Gannon said. "By the
time they are in 10th grade,
our students are doing well
in writing and are at the state
average. There is growth there
over time."
Wilder added, "Are we as

School Board member
Billy Quinn, Jr. noted the
tutorial options now available
in programs spearheaded by
the Norris D. Langston Youth
Scholarship Foundation and
Minnie Likely as well as the
district's opportunity centers.
"I think that is one
thing that is helping our test
scores," Quinn said. "We
are doing some things. We
need to get our parents more
involved."
Third-grade scores in
math and reading may have
been more impressive than
the writing gains.

For example, with just

Gulf County was tied for third

"We were very impressed
with that," Wilder said.
Gulf County is tied
for sixth in the state for

lowest quartile in reading, tied


for seventh in the percentage

levels 3-5 in reading.
The district's average
math and reading scores
among third-graders were
fourth and tied for sixth,
respectively.
And under a state formula

are quantified, and which

the district's schools were tied

Risk Assessment


The next 30-45 days loom as crucial for a
proposed re-nourishment of the beaches of St.
Joseph Peninsula.
With county commissioners establishing a
date next month for a ballot referendum on
the local taxing structure to fund more than
half the overall bill, which will land somewhere
between $15-$20 million, and a town hall
meeting set for next week at St. Joseph Bay
Country Club, the project has arrived at a
critical juncture.
The town hall meeting next week seems
particularly key because the entire case has yet
to be laid out for those who will foot at least
part of the cost through additional property
taxes and who remain skeptics, at best, of the
project.
For several months the educational piece
of the project which late last year many critics
urged has been undertaken.
There has been significant progress.
An engineer's study has focused on the
scope of the roughly 6 mile project, selected
a method for re-nourishment and identified
potential underwater sources for replacement
sand.
An economic study quantified what many
already understood anecdotally, that the
peninsula and its beaches provide a broad
foundation to the county tax base, luring
significant dollars, in a variety of forms, into
the county.
The peninsula is eroding, and quickly,
no study was really required to understand
that, one walk along White Sands Drive is
sufficient evidence, but, as the study indicated,
the peninsula is not just rapidly eroding, it
is disappearing at a pace remarkable even
for a state ravaged the past few years by
hurricanes.
A Beach Advisory Committee has launched
an informational/advocacy campaign and has
set about addressing the magnet for state
beach re-nourishment dollars local public
access.
Re-nourishment projects have been, or
are soon to be, underway in dozens of Florida
counties, with a state. pool of money earmarked
several years ago for beach re-nourishment
around the SunshineState. I
For many, though, particularly critics, the
bottom line is not yet clear, pieces of the puzzle
missing, information disseminated confusing.

While county commissioners, at the
request of the BAC, last week capped millage
rates for the three taxing zones on the peninsula
- beachfront, beachfront interior and bayside
- those numbers were long red lines in the
sand anyway.
And as commissioners approved the caps,
the actual percentages of costs to be borne by
property owners in the three taxing districts
- 70 percent for beachfront, 20 percent for
beachfront interior, 5 percent for bayside was
communicated to the Commission erroneously
and not corrected.
What remains most
elusive are the actual dollars, T he

local, required for the project, next

Without a bottom line

project, who to their credit are
willing to shoulder that burden and not rely on
government to ride to the rescue probably a
sound course in this and so many other area
counties ensuring that all the information is
out is basic to the cause.
For this election is a tricky proposition.
The nuances start with the reality that
among hundreds and hundreds of property
owners on the peninsula, and in the project
area, there are but 150-155 registered voters
eligible to cast a referendum ballot.
In an age of voter apathy and anemic poll
percentages, that such a minority of voters
will determine such a high-profile question is
noteworthy.
Also fair to note is that at least a percentage
of those registered to vote, or who own property
on the peninsula, see rising taxes as more of
a threat than the sea to sweep them out of the
area.
While a number of letters to this newspaper,
from around the world, were written in avid
support of preserving the beaches, there were
more than a few who noted that taxes and a
spendthrift County Commission posed a more
imminent threat than vanishing sand.

The landscape, we would argue, is also
shaped by recent hurricanes, especially
Hurricane Katrina, and how those storms
provide backdrop to a fundamental question
posed over re-nourishment projects around
the country about man's ability to push back
Mother Nature.
Given that a nationally-renowned scientist
is doing research on the impacts of global
warming on coastal communities just up the
road at the St. Joseph Bay Buffer Preserve
highlights this point.
In sum, there is a strong case to be made by
local tourism and economic
development interests,
as well as homeowners
fe trying to maintain the floor
fe W beneath their feet, favoring
a large project to re-nourish
s^ the beaches of St. Joseph
IS- Peninsula.
Those property owners
o e are also willing to foot the
majority of the bill out of
a | their own pockets. Those
a l. who will benefit most, the
-gulf-front property owners,
will pay far and away the largest percentage of
the dollars.
One can't help but think of the folks on
White Sands Drive, who have already put
roughly half a million dollars into saving their
homes and have deep empathy and respect for
what they are attempting.
At the same time those homeowners
seeing the sea lap at their homes each day
must understand that there remain those leery
of the project.
The expanded Beach Advisory Committee
and its meetings the past couple of months
underscored that 'while there is consensus
on much, there are fissures running through
several fundamental elements of the beach re-
nourishment project.
And' it is those elements which provide
voters with the opportunity for thorough risk
assessment on which to gauge their support
for reaching into their pockets to fund the
beach. It is those elements which will offer the
comfort level many seek.
The next few weeks will be crucial.

The warm air and balmy humidity serves
as a tonic this time of year, compared to the
end of the summer when temperatures in the
70's and humidity under 90 percent are seen as
cooling relief.
Maybe it's because we are too far removed
from last summer to remember how the days
begin to sap until we all turn into dogs, panting
and sweating and willing to roll around in a
puddle if it spells relief.
After several months of cool temperatures
- though many would argue about the local
definition of cool and dreary skies, a high
azure ceiling and glowing sun mean longer days
for the out of doors.
And race outdoors while they remain
relatively pleasant.
Spring also means the onset of festival
season.
We hit that first burst of sun and heat for
the year and, just coincidentally, folks are out
there offering a rainbow literally of respites
for the mind and soul.
"Taste of the Coast" came and went over the
weekend to sellout crowds and is to be quickly
followed by the Plein air painters and their show
of in-the-moment creations on canvas.
Relay for Life celebrates those who survive,
those who lost and those who continue to
wage the battle against cancer and this year
the honors are taking place at both ends of the
county simultaneously.
A sign, I want to believe, that the event,
which was held on just one end of the county
or the other for years, is growing, the cause
bringing more and more feet, hearts and dollars
to the fray.
In an aside, let me note that Relay for Life
will henceforth remind me of Oscar Redd, who
lost the fight, his second, to cancer last year and
is sorely missed by those who knew, counted on
and loved Oscar.
Here was a small man of giant heart when it
came to his on-again, off-agani tussle with lung
cancer. Oscar defined grace and doggedness. He
simply would not let it get him down, even as
his condition grew grave, the odds of recovery
long, the. smile was quick, a handshake right
behind.
I considered him a friend and an example
of spirit in the face of adversity. He was a human
in the best meaning of the word.
But I digress.
As May unfolds so do more festivals and
events, such as the St. Joseph Bay clean-up
and, of course, the Tupelo Festival, moved in the
past few years into late May to take advantage of
the tupelo bloom which generally occurs during
the early part of the month.
Memorial Day is just around the corner,
fishing tournaments on the river a cast away
and then it's time to ramp up for Independence
on the Coast and a host of other July Fourth
festivities.
As if the crystalline water and the tropical
breezes of this time of year weren't enough to
lure folks off the couch and out the door, there
are a host of people in this county determined to
ensure plenty of endless recreational options.
Dysfunction Junction
There is no secret that this corner is
downright hostile to the Florida High School
Athletics Association and just to show there is
no bias on season, the state's high school sports
sanctioning body has provided more evidence
this spring of its tin ear.
We'll start with the Wewahitchka Lady
Gators and their Tuesday trip to Sneads for the
Region 1-2A softball championship game.
With a Final Four berth on the line, the Lady
Gators, who have lost only one game, to the
defending Class 3A state champs, are required
to travel to play a team they have beaten not
once, not twice, but three times.
Sure, the FHSAA has their gimmicky top-
line-of-the-bracket approach to the playoffs, a
long-standing guideline, but some sanity could
surely be injected when the calendar dips this
late into the playoffs.
Somehow, it just seems reasonable that
three wins over Sneads should have been
enough to earn Wewahitchka home field on
Tuesday, regardless of whether they fell onto the
wrong line in some bizarre quadratic equation.
It's simple math.
This, it has been argued from this corner,
is also the case with the private schools which
quite bluntly have to get the heck out of the
lower classifications in sports.
This was underscored once again in the
Class 1A state track and field meet in which
Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka competed.
When Wewahitchka's boys' 4 x 400 relay
team is the second-fastest at the meet among
public schools, but officially finishes 10t, some
of the gleam those kids should take away from
qualifying for the state meet is dimmed.
It also trains a particular spotlight on the

"Access to affordable,

Boyd. "Since many rural pro-

And the state has thus

A Letter to the Graveyard Kleptomaniac:
You know who you are and hopefully, for your betterment, we will never find out. We,
the purchasers of items placed on our loved one's graves, want you to know that you may get
away with this here and there, but one day you will answer for your transgressions. I hope you
enjoy and get great use out of the items you have so selfishly taken. Your contemptible actions
will be prevailed one day. Although times have changed drastically, I do believe you should be
placed in the middle of town and stoned. For such a despicable act I hope that when you are
exposed, that you will be treated like the wretched derelict you are.
This isn't about the nice flower pots you stole from my recently deceased 10-year-old
daughter's grave, this is about the fact you are an audacious maggot whom has no more
morality or dignity than to steal from the. deceased. Obviously, you have no conscience to take
something that is not yours to begin with, but to take from the dead how pathetic are you?

By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
Neil Smith-Willow has
grown weary of the Amish.
Inside his St. George
Island studio, a 40x60-inch
oil painting features a group
of bonneted women and
suspender-clad men standing
beside crystal blue water,
their feet planted firmly in the
sand.
The painting is Smith-
Willow's fourth and final
attempt to capture a
memorable afternoon on Lido
Beach, when he encountered a
group of roaming Mennonites
enjoying some fun in the sun.
"This is the last one I'll
ever do," he pledged as he
scanned the piece. "I got it out
of my system."
Smith-Willow worked
from photographs he snapped
that day, mixing and matching
figures until he arrived at a
suitable composition.
He willfully misnamed
the final version, identifying
the Mennonite beachgoers
as old order Amish, who can
scarcely be found baring their
ankles.
The painting provides
a playful counterpoint to
the images of native scenes
and landscapes that line the
studio's walls.
Smith-Willow has
assembled an impressive
'collection of oils for a Friday
exhibit at the Port Inn, the
first in the Gulf Alliance for
the Local Arts' (GALA) First
Friday series'.
The paintings depict
Eastpoint oyster boats, a
view of Apalachicola from the
bridge, and other familiar
scenery.
Smith-Willow moved to
St. George Island in 1988,
after a 15-year stint as an
art professor at Brenau
University, a women's college
north of Atlanta, where he
taught a variety of subjects


including figure drawing,
photography and silk
screening.
The first professional
artist in his family, Smith-
Willow discovered a passion
for drawing early in life.
"It was the only thing that
I did that I liked to do, so I
thought I'd be selfish and try
to do it," he recalled.
He received his formal
training at the Art Student
League in New York, the
Ringling School of Arts in
Sarasota, and the University
of Guanajuato in San Miguel
de Allende Mexico.
Inspired by John Singer
Sargent, Edgar Degas and
Richard Schmid, Smith-
Willow developed his unique
representational style through
years of artistic exploration.
'That's where I ended
up. You do a thing and land
somewhere and there you go,"
he said.
Throughout his career,
he has painted numerous
portraits, accepting
commissions only when
the work is inspiring and
collaborative.
"If they want something
creative, I'll do it," said
Smith-Willow, who often

declines to paint what he calls
"sitting down, looking at you
portraits."
Commissioned by. an
Atlanta woman to paint her
memory of a day swimming
with dolphins, an inspired
Smith-Willow undertook a
series of five paintings.'
Serial work affords him
the opportunity to explore a
concept more thoroughly than
he could in a single painting.
"Through the studies, you
work out more things that
might be interesting, and you
just kind of do them all," he


Apalachicola Waterfront by Neal Smith-Willow


explained.
A selection of paintings
from a recent series on pre-
Hurricane Dennis Eastpoint
will be featured at Friday's
show, and Smith-Willow plans
another series of portraits of
longtime area residents.
Smith-Willow is
captivated by idiosyncrasies.
He has photographed a large
collection of faces, which
he hopes to' translate into
character sketches.
"I'm taking some digital
photographs, and sometimes
it's clandestine. They
don't know they're being
photographed," laughed
Smith-Willow. "Slowly, but
surely, I'm creeping up on all
of them."
He knows many of the
subjects personally, such
as his friend "Red," whose
photograph rests tucked away
in a small studio drawer.
A forthcoming trip to Italy
will set the project back a few
months, but when he returns,
Red and his friends will be
waiting.
"There's a lot of character
floating around," noted Smith-
Willow.
He hopes to pin some of it
down on canvas.

Harnessing the Healing Power of Music


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
Together, they formed an
unforgettable quintet the
songbird, the visionary, the
dancing man, the quiet one.
Each heard the music in
his own way, responded with
a whoop, a clap, a snatch of
an old hymn.
"Praise the Lord, I saw the
light," the songbird sang above
the discordant rhythms.
The chorus became a
chant, the heralding of a
miracle worth repeating.
Those who observed the
Gulf County Association
for Retarded Citizens (ARC)
music hour last Wednesday
found their faith in miracles
restored.
The ARC clients, many
of whom possess limited
powers of speech, expressed
themselves through music.
Some played the keyboards,
while others sang a medley of
inspirational songs.
Jerry, an autistic man
who once did not speak or
respond to human interaction,
danced.
Four weeks ago, the ARC
embarked on a music program
designed to enlarge the worlds
of its developmentally disabled
clients.
Through the Visiting
Artist Program, sponsored
by VSA Arts of Florida, a
non-profit organization that
promotes the creative power in
people with disabilities, ARC
directors teamed with Mexico
Beach music teacher Connie
Risinger for seven weeks of
personalized instruction.
Risinger had never taught
developmentally disabled
students before, and ARC
director Dianna Harrison
harbored secret doubts. She
did not know how her clients
would accept a stranger.
Harrison's concerns
disappeared with Risinger's
first visit to the ARC.
"She- got so personal with
them," remembered Harrison.
"The first day, she wanted to
know their, names, and she
learned something about
them."
Risinger arrived with
keyboards borrowed from her
music students, and decided
that the ARC clients would
play, sing and dance.
She programmed the
keyboards to play background
rhythms, and asked for
volunteers.
Most of the ARC clients
did not need any prodding.
They loved pressing the keys,
and were initially unwilling
to give up their seats at the
keyboards.
Four weeks in, they
now graciously allow their
friends a turn, an exchange
facilitated by Risinger, who
tries to include everyone in
the lessons.
Risinger has a natural
rapport with her students. She
plays the keyboard with them,
sings to them, urges them on
with a persistent clap.
She lets them express
themselves in whatever
manner they choose, and has
acquired a taste for the off-
kilter music.
"Everyone seems to, hear
their own song that they're
playing. They don't seem
to hear the others," she
laughed.
Like any good teacher,
Risinger extols the merits of
each of her pupils.
She nods at her songbird,
who has switched from "I
Saw the Light" to an inspired'
rendition of "Rudolph the Red
Nosed Reindeer."
"He's got quite a repertoire
of songs. They're his versions,
but he sings away," said
Risinger.
The group's visionary
takes another turn at the
keyboard, and his sound
experiments have garnered
Risinger's attention.
"He's my experimenter,"
noted Risinger. "He's the first
one who started playing with
the buttons. He's learning
about the different sounds."
While her students pound
out songs on the keyboards,
Risinger takes a spin on the


dance floor.
One of the clients is a
natural dancer and glides with
Risinger on the carpet.


Above: Connie Risinger
dances with a Gulf County
Association for Retarded Citizens
client during last Wednesday's
music lesson.
Left: Risinger's student
claps in time to the music.
When their song is over,
Risinger coaxes, a smiling
Jerry from his seat.
"Come on Jerry, want
to dance?" she asks, and he
reaches for her outstretched
arms.
When ARC executive
assistant Catherine Minger
enters the room, her eyes light
up as she watches Jerry cut
a rug.
Minger responded to VSA
Arts of Florida's initial inquiry


with hopes that something
remarkable might happen.
"Jerry was one we hadn't
gotten through to, and I was
hoping maybe through this he
would open up, and he seems
to be having a good time," said
Minger. "I'm amazed."
Risinger has won the
admiration of most of the
ARC clients, but there are
relationships yet to forge.
A solemn man in the
corner has declined to play on
Wednesday, but Risinger has
not given up hope that he will.
join in.
"He wouldn't talk to me
at first, but now he does. I'm
hoping that I can talk him into
playing," she noted.
As the music program
entered its final weeks,
Risinger grew thoughtful
about her experience at the
ARC.
"This was a new
experience, but I've learned
as much as they have," said
Risinger. "I've really enjoyed
it.
She will miss her weekly
visits to the ARC and the eager
pupils that jockey to help her
unload the keyboards.
They do not know that
the music lessons will soon be
over.
ARC employees are
hoping to find a way to extend
the grant. Minger would like
to expand the program to
include other art forms, and
Harrison hopes to further the
gains made by her clients.
"I never expected them to
get as. much out of it as they
have," she said. "I hate to see
the program run out. They
look so forward to it and enjoy
if so much."


Risinger leads her students in a song.

Wewahitchka Outs Port St. Joe in Di


The sports cliche holds
that when the postseason
arrives, the slate is wiped
clean.
There was no better
example than last week's
District 4-2A district tourna-
ment in Port St. Joe, where
the host Sharks had their
season halted by the inspired
play of Wewahitchka in the
semifinals.
Posting six runs in
the sixth inning and out-
hitting the Sharks 10-4,
Wewahitchka, behind pitcher
Johnny Jones, cruised past
Port St. Joe 8-2, ending the
,Sharks season and ensur-
ing the Gators a spot in the
region tournament.
Port St. Joe finished 15-


10, including wins in the only
two regular-season contests
between the county rivals.
Wewahitchka, which lost
in the district final to Liberty
County, played at Altha (6-
13) on Tuesday night. A win
at Altha would advance the
Gators to a Friday matchup
against either Jay or Ponce
de Leon, both 16-7.
The Gators jumped on
Port St. Joe early last Tuesday
night after Liberty County
had waxed West Gadsden in
the first semifinal 16-1.
Wewahitcha scored sin-
gle runs in the first and third
innings off Port St. Joe start-
er Austin Peltier to grab a 2-0
lead.
Port St. Joe tied the game


with two runs in the fifth
inning, Jordan Todd end-
ing his high school career
with an RBI single in four
trips to the plate, but the
Gators answered in the next
half inning, putting six runs
across at they benefited from
wildness on the part of reliev-
ers Matt Gannon and T.J.
Ward.
In addition to giving
up 10 hits, Shark pitchers
walked six.
After. Peltier allowed three
hits and walked one while
striking out four and allow-
ing two runs, one earned, in
2 1/3, Gannon took over and
pitched three innings, Ward
taking over with one out in
the sixth.


district Play
Gannon (4-3) took the
loss, walking one and allow-
ing three hits and striking
out four while allowing two
earned runs. Ward, while fail-
ing to induce an out, walked
three and allowed three hits
and four earned runs as the
Gators broke the game open.
Andrew Furr pitched the
final 1 2/3 innings, giving up
a hit and walking one while
striking out one.
Mica Ashcraft and Corbin
Vickery were each 1 for 2 'at
the plate and Warren Floyd
was 1 for 3. All four Shark
hits were singles.
"It wasn't the way we
wanted to end the season but
you have to give the Gators a
lot of credit for being ready to

play," said Port St. Joe coach
Chuck Gannon.
The Sharks lose just four


seniors from thisyear's team,
providing optimism for next
year.


Port St. Joe Falls in Region Quarters PSJHS


Heartbreaking.
That would be the only
way to describe the end of
the season for Port St. Joe's
softball team last Tueday.
Nursing a 6-5 lead with
two out in the home half of
the seventh in a Region 1-
2A quarterfinal at Sneads,
the Lady Sharks allowed two
unearned runs and fell 7-6 to
tack an abrupt period onto a
promising season.
Sneads subsequent-
ly won a regional semifinal
and wound up where many
thought Port St. Joe would.
playing Wewahitchka for the
regional title and ja trip to the
state Final Four on Tuesday
night at Sneads.
"That one keeps replay-
ing in my mind," said Port St.
Joe coach Jim Belin of the
tough last-inning loss to the
Lady Pirates.
The Lady Sharks, a
team with a roster domi-
nated by underclassmen,
ended the season 18-6, with
three of those losses coming
to Wewahitchka and two to
Panama City Beach Arnold.
Of those two losses to
Arnold. one came with the
team missing several key
players who attended the
football banquet and the sec-
ond loss came in 11 innings.
Freshman Kayla Minrger


pitched a complete game for
Port St. Joe against Sneads,
allowing six hits and four
earned runs while walking
two and striking out three.
Minger also had one of
the Lady Sharks nine hits
- they out-hit Sneads and
scored more earned runs
but were undone in the final
frame.
Torie Greer, another
freshman, produced the big-
gest day of her young career


at the plate to pace the
offense, going 3 for 4 with
an inside-the-park home run.
Greer scored two runs and
drove in two.
Samantha Denton was 2
for 2 with a stolen base and
a run-scored and Heather
Strange added two-run sin-
gle.
Victoria McCall also sin-
gled and Brittany Miller had
an RBI single.

The Final Four looms

"We are playing pret-

Wewahitchka coach Charles

good defense.
"All we've got to do is play

Hannah Price singled twice
and drove in a run.
Megan Peak had an RBI

Chelsea Pettis and Misty
Robbins both singled.
Friday, April 28
Wewahitchka 4, Baker 2
Wewahitchka was not
as sharp as usual in this
battle of the Lady' Gators but
it ultimately mattered little
as Rich tossed another com-
plete-game gem and Mandy
Robbins and Rich both had
two-run doubles.


Wewahitchka put the
visitors on their heels imme-
diately in the bottom of the
first.
Green walked and Price
followed with a sacrifice bunt.
However, the throw to first
was high and wide and by
the time the ball ended up
back with the pitcher, Green
was on third and Price on
second.
Rich promptly laced a
double into left-center plat-
ing both runs.
Baker benefited from a
uncharacteristic fielding mis-
take to close to 2-1 in the third
inning. A bloop double down
the left-field line put a runner
in scoring position before an
infield grounder resulted in a


{-* w* :* '- -':

force-out at first.
The runner at second
took' off with the throw to
first and Megan Peak's throw
to third slipped past several
gloves and careened off a foot
down the line into the out-
field and the runner scored
an unearned run.
Wewahitchka put the
game away in the sixth
when Rich and Lenina Wiles
reached base on singles and
scored on a double off the bat
of Mandy Robbins.
Misty Robbins also had a
,single for Wewahitchka.
Rich (15-1) struck out '
14 in seven innings while
walking five and allowing two
hits.


Norris Wins at State Track and Field Meet; Naylor Seventh


After finishing third in
the discus during last year's
Class 1A track and field
meet, Zac Norris of Port St.
Joe High School traveled to
Jacksonville Wolfson High
School last Friday for -this
year's state track meet on a
mission.

easily at the Region 1-1A
meet.

said Norris. a senior \\ho was
also part of the Sharks' state
title run in football during
the 2005-06 school year. "I
wa going out there to win. I
wasn't playing."
That became apparent
roughly midway through the
discus competition when
Norris uncorked a toss of 157
feet, six inches, which was
eight feet beyond his previous
best, more than 12 feet farther
than his longest throw in the
preliminaries.
It also wound up
being eight inches farther
than anybody else, in -the
competition managed.
And secured for Norris
the gold medal.
"You know when you let a'
good one go, you just feel it,"
Norris said.
Wewahitchka's Billy
Naylor -also -earned a medal,
finishing seventh in the
1,600 meter run in a time of
4:44.44.


The next-best finish by
a county athlete came in the
4 x 400 meter relay, with
Wewahitchka's combination
of JiJ. Roberts, Trey Goodwin,
Josh Lollie and Naylor
finishing 10t in a time of
3:37.24.
Though 10th overall, the
Gator relay team finished
second among all public

What Have We REALLY Learned From Hurricanes?


By Marie Logan
Star Staff Writer
Hurricane season is
just 27 days away, and the
images of the New Orleans
Superdome are still seared
into our memories. Everything
horrifying about public storm
shelters is now our standard
of what not to do, and with
storm season almost here
again, everyone is beginning


to think about, or at least
should start thinking about,
the possibility of needing a
shelter from the storms of
this upcoming season.

Shelter From the Storm
If the orders are given
for Mexico Beach and Gulf
County residents to evacuate,
what will you do? Do you
have a plan in mind? Are


you going to try to ride out
the storm in your home, or
are you going to leave? If
you leave, where will you go?
If you do not have family or










r..

.Ii

i


friends willing to take you in,
and all the hotels, motels and
campgrounds fill up before
you get there, do you have
a plan B? Your refuge of
last resort is a public storm
shelter. Are you prepared?
Hurricane Katrina was an
eye-opener in so many ways. It
taught us what could happen
if no one makes preparations.
Since Katrina... and Rita... and
Wilma, the federal government
has basically told states
that they are on their own
during and after a disaster of
monumental proportions.
This was reiterated
at the National Hurricane
Conference in mid-April, and
Florida state officials have
told their state emergency
management officials, law
enforcement, public safety
officials, and emergency
services crews to be prepared
to take care of themselves for
at least two weeks before help
can arrive.
Those local-level officials
are passing the word along to
all individual Floridians: each
person must be prepared to
survive without outside help
for at least two weeks, maybe
longer. That means making
plans now for extensive in-
home stay, extended stay
long distances from home,
or extended stay in public
shelters.

People Prep
If you are heading to a
shelter:
> Find out well before
evacuation exactly
where the nearest
shelter is.
> Listen to radio
and television for
the latest updated
information. Storm
direction, intensity
and other factors
will determine which
shelters will open.


Also, some shelters
will fill more quickly
than others. '
SGulf County does not
have any public shelters.
Neither does Mexico Beach.
The nearest shelters are in
Liberty County, but only if
Liberty County officials decide
to open them.
> Let a friend or relative
know where you are
headed.
> If you or a family
member is disabled
or have a serious
medical condition,
pre-register with your
county's Division
of Emergency
Management in order
to receive special help
or transportation
during a hurricane
evacuation.
> C o n s i d e r
volunteering at the
shelter once you get
there. You will be
occupied instead of
sitting and worl-ying,
and you can really
help.
Call the American Red
Cross in .your county, or
the Volunteer Center of the
United Way in your area if
you want to volunteer while
at a shelter.
> Eat a good, hot meal
before you go. Who
knows when your
next hot meal will
be? *

Shelter Supply List:
> Identification and
insurance papers,
sealed in a waterproof
bag, if possible. A
clear plastic, self-seal
food storage bag is
ideal and cheap.
> Water for .every
person you bring
to the shelter -, one
gallon per person per


day.
Remember, be prepared
to stay a minimum of three
days, or, if the disaster is
as extensive as hurricane
Katrina, up to two weeks.
This means planning on food,
water and toiletry supplies for
that time.
> Make sure all your
food is ready-to-eat,
since shelters do
not allow food to be
cooked, or water to
be heated.
> Medicines you will
need, all prescriptions
and Medic Alert tags.
> Blankets, pillows
and/or sleeping bags
or cots.
Inflatable air mattresses
are questionable because
there might not be electricity
to use the inflating device.
> Beach chair, chaise
lounge or cots.
> Flashlights (one per
person), radio and
batteries. Consider
the hand-cranked
emergency radio
combinations, even
tiny battery powered
televisions.
> Batteries for all
equipment.
> Changes of clothing,
enough for at least
three days. Pajamas
are not really
appropriate, but
heavy duty shoes are
a necessity.
> Toiletries, like soap,
deodorant, tooth
brush and toothpaste,
shampoo and even
hand cream.
One of the most useful
items is baby wipes, which
can be used for a multitude
of personal hygiene tasks. Of
utmost importance is toilet
paper. Travel sized items
are ideal for these situations,

because so many can be
packed into tiny spaces
and luggage is limited in a
shelter.
> Cellular phone and
extra battery pack.
> Baby items: food,
formula, diapers,
lotion, teething rings,
toys, et.
> Something to occupy
time.
Consider purchasing
before hand all kinds of travel
items, including travel games,
cards, paperback books,
magazines, etc.

Shelter No-No's
Do not bring:
> Any pets, unless they
are service animals
like seeing-eye dogs.
> Alcoholic beverages,
drugs, or smoking
materials. Smoking
is not permitted
in shelters, nor is
alcohol and certainly
not drug use.
> Big luggage or several
pieces of luggage.
Most people are
restricted to one,
maybe two, pieces
of gym bag sized
luggage.
> Valuables.
It is really chancy to bring
valuables into a public shelter.
If you,must, make sure they
stay wrapped up and out of
sight at all times and never
leave them unattended. Do
not wear flashy, expensive-
looking jewelry inside the
shelter, since it may
provoke an attack on your
person, as someone tries to
.steal it from you.
> Weapons are, of
course, prohibited in
a shelter, including
knives, box cutters,
etc.

Home Prep
If you evacuate, no matter
,where you go, you need to
prepare your home and yp d
'fo help them weather the
storm
> Bring inside or
;store" very securely'
all articles outside:
lawn furniture,
yard art, plants and
'%1 containers, especially
large ones.

'down ,on their sides in the

loose rocks, bricks,
etc. that can become
airborne missiles.
> Lock all doors and
windows, and secure
all windows with
plywood or hurricane
shutters. Reinforce
garage doors and
French doors.
> Turn off electricity
and water.
You should learn to do
this before a disaster strikes,
and have the necessary tools
at your house, typically an
adjustable pipe wrench and a
crescent wrench.
> If you have food in
a home freezer, see
if you can store it
elsewhere or take it
with you.
> Leave your natural
gas on unless
instructed by officials
to turn it off.
You may need gas for
heating or cooking, and only
a professional can turn it on
once it has been turned off.
In times of emergency, it may
take days or weeks to get a
professional to your home to
turn on your gas once it has
been turned off.
> Have roof repair
materials handy,
such as roof tarps and
nails, or self-sealing
waterproof covers
to make emergency
repairs.
> Many of the home
supplies are the same
as what you would
take to a shelter, in
terms of clothing,
food, toiletries, baby
supplies, etc.

Sheltering At Home
One of the major lessons
learned from last year's
hurricanes was that if people
do not need to evacuate,
they should stay at home
and ride out the storm if at
all possible. If emergency
officials tell people to "shelter
in place," this means remain


inside your home or office and
protect yourself there.
> Close and lock all
windows and exterior
doors.
> Turn off all fans,
heating and air
conditioning
systems.
> Close the fireplace
damper.
> Go to an interior room
without windows
that is above ground
level.
> Bring your disaster
kit to a central
location and make
sure the radio is
operating.
Keep the radio and/or the
television on until you hear
an "all safe" message from
proper authorities.
During your home
shelteringyoushouldmaintain
a 24-hour communications
and safety watch. Take turns
with anyone else inside the
house listening for radio
broadcasts.
> Assemble an
emergency toilet,
if necessary, as
part of your early
preparations.

Hurricanes


Pet Prep
Maybe the biggest shock
to officials during Katrina
was the number of pet owners
who refused to evacuate
because they had nowhere to
take their pets. As a result,
hundreds of people needlessly
died. No one expected the
problem of pet ownership
that manifested itself, so as
a result, officials and shelters
are trying to take the pet issue
into consideration. That said,
most shelters still will not
allow pets, although many
more "pet-friendly" shelters
have become available.


The most important pet
preparation is to prepare
ahead of time...way ahead.
Animals should not be
left behind in an evacuation.
At the first warnings of an
impending hurricane, bring
all animals into the house so
you will not have to search for
them later.
Bear in mind that animals
all react differently under
stress. Keep animals securely
leashed or in carriers, securely
fastened, at all times. Do not
leave animals unattended
anywhere. Remember that

cannot accept pets because
of state health and safety
regulations.
Pet shelters and hotel/
motels that accommodate
pets fill up in the blink of
an eye when a hurricane
forms. In advance, contact
hotels and motels outside
your immediate area to check
policies on accepting pets and
restrictions on number, size
and species. Ask whether "no
pet" policies can be waived in
an emergency.
Keep an updated list of
"pet friendly" places, including
phone numbers, with your
other disaster preparation
information. An excellent
source of information is www.
PetsWelcome.com, which
maintains a list of hotels that
accept pets.
Make arrangements with
a trusted friend or neighbor
to help evacuate your pets
Sin the event you cannot get
home.
Vaccinate your pet
before a storm approaches.
Pet shelters may require
proof of vaccinations. Keep
vaccination records with your
important papers. Infectious
diseases can become a major
threat after a disaster.
Put ID tags on all your
pets. Consider having your


pet tattooed or having a
microchip implanted.
Have a proper sized pet
carrier for each of your pets.
Make sure it is large enough
for each pet to stand up and
turn around comfortably
inside.
Take clear, color photos of
each pet (front, left and right
sides) and store these with
your pet's license, medical
records and ownership papers
in a waterproof carrier, added
to your own records.

periodically. Do not put
water inside the carrier
during transport; instead,
place several slices of fresh
fruit and vegetables with high
water content in the carrier.
Snakes can be
transported in a pillowcase,
but they must be transferred
to more secure housing when
at the evacuation site.
Final Thoughts
When an evacuation is
ordered, it is not the time to
try to think about what you
want to save and to start
trying to gather precious
mementos and supplies. Do
it beforehand.
Once good way to
prepare is to actually pack
certain things at the start of
hurricane season and leave
them boxed up and ready to
grab at a moment's notice.
If you go to a shelter,
you can only take the basic,
bare necessities. Keep a
couple of duffle bags packed
with clothes, toiletries, even
food. Gather all important
documents and keep them
in one giant envelope in one
place, so you can pick them
,up on the run.
If you have time to
prep your house and yard,
:and to pack the car before
-evacuating, you can take
"more with you.
Again, pack as much
,as possible beforehand and
"leave it all in boxes during
the storm season.
Go through every room,
making a list of the things you
cannot bear to lose. Gather
;all photographs, framed or
unframed into a large box
and have it ready to put in
.the car. Photographs were
:among the most mourned
'lost possessions in every
Hurricane of the past -two
.-ears.
N If you have lists for
'each room, you only need
,to walk through the house,
Grabbing the few items you
'listed. You will not be as
overwhelmed as when you
'have no plan at all. The same
'goes for children's rooms and
,possessions, and for pets and
Their necessities.
If you have the means
,to do so, consider buying a
itimy piece of land well inland,
.either with an existing house
"on it, or placing a mobile
aorne on it, to give yourself a
place to go to when you must
4,evacuate. If your primary
'house along the coast is
damaged, at least you will
Have some place to. stay for
an extended time.
S Or consider buying a
small camper or recreational
vehicle, nothing fancy. This,
i too, will give you a guaranteed'

Help Is on the Line for Pet Accommodations
An excellent source of information for pet owners who need
places to stay during hurricanes, but have pets to consider, is the
website PetsWelcome.com.
The site offers information from basic motels to bed and
breakfasts that welcome animals. They keep their lists as updated
as possible, and remove names of lodgings that get bad reports
from customers and their animals.
The site offers a reservation system for immediate use. If an
icon of a paw print appears beside a listing, the customer can.make
instant, on-line reservations for that lodging. Because of the large
number of lodging reservations the website processes, they are
able to negotiate special internet rates directly with the properties.
These rates are lower, in most cases, than the normal rates a person
could receive by contacting the property directly.
However. once a person makes a reservation on-line, the site
strongly recommends that the customer call ahead to double check
that the property is still pet friendly.
The site has also added two new databases specifically for
accommodations that accept larger dogs and cats.

DENTAL NEWS FROM THE OFFICE OF

FRANK D. MAY, DMD, PA
.en i .r tl'.t i .o g,,ilf C' .L jr .ir,;e.l

DISCOLORED TEETH
The darkened color of a front tooth means there is some degree of nerve degeneration. This color change,
however, is not conclusive since the pulp (composed of the nerve, blood vessels, and certain other elementul is
capable of fully recovering from injury. When this happens we can be left with a tooth that is darker but quite
healthy.
Discolored back teeth, are usually cause by color changes produced by an amalgam filling whose me al
components have invaded the adjacent tooth structure. There is no reason to replace a discolored filling or one
next to darkened tooth structure, unless it is visually objectionable. In fact there is evidence that the discoloring
invasion actually seals the junction between filling and tooth, making it more secure from decay bacteria. The
problem is that decay can also cause discoloration as can a variety of bacteria. The color may be just stain, but
to prevent potential difficulties, any pronounced color changes, anterior or posterior, should be checked by
your dentist..

When she took her seat
*in front of her project, Furr's
'first judge arrived, speaking
a language that only vaguely
resembled English.
"Would you, like, point
*to something on the board,
-because I can't understand
.you?" Furr offered, but the
*judge was unmoved.
He walked away and took
Furr's confidence with him.
As Furr's spirit sank, a
friendly senior zoology student
leaned over with some advice
and encouragement.
"You probably won't
-have another judge like
that," he told Furr. Her solar
:energy project proved that
.she would grow to become
'very successful, he added,
.and Furr's confidence was
restored.
The judges in the next
Three rounds posed thoughtful
*questions phrased in perfect
'English, and Furr handled
:herself like a pro.
She listened to herself,
and made mental notes for
'her next interview.
"You learn from yourself,
:you learn from what you say,"
said Furr, who soon began


asking the judges her own
questions.
When they asked her
how she could improve her
project, she asked for their
suggestions. When she didn't
know how to respond to a
query, she said, "I'll have to
look into that in the future."
Sitting nearby, Ashley
Vazquez, the scientist behind
the project "Energy No More?
The Conversions of Energy"
weighed in by saying Furr's
project was way better than
hers.
Unsure of her chances
at an award, Furr put on
another brightly colored outfit
and headed to the evening's
award ceremony, held in the
Orlando Convention Center.
The sprawling convention
center seemed to swallow
time itself, as Furr and her
father waited impatiently for
the junior physics category.
With each name called,
Furr grew less sure of
herself.
Did she have what it took
to place at state?

announced a second prize

- From 1A
Furr felt her confidence
surge.
With a while to go before
the announcement of the first-
place winners, Furr made a
beeline to the bathroom.
When she returned, her
excited father greeted her at
the door with the news that
she'd won first place.
Thinking that there had
been a mistake, Furr caught
the attention of a severe
looking woman holding a
clipboard and asked for
verification.
"She said, Yes,' and I was
so happy," remembered Furr.
With her award came
other surprises a $50 check
from the Florida Foundation
for Future Scientists and a
chance to possibly compete
in the Discovery Channel
Young Scientist Challenge in
Washington, D.C.
Only 10 percent of the
nearly 500 students competing
at the state competition
were asked to submit their
application for the Young
Scientist Challenge.
The kid who crashed the
party received an engraved
invitation.


Furr's project tested the
efficiency of two forms of solar
energy the solar thermal heat-
er (top left) and the solar elec-
tric-to heat conversion using a
photovoltaic panel (right).

...... Moaning the Rocket Launch Blues
'. 1-, itss ^ &* _-_ __4 .s i+ BE' Tc'Jf^ S f. i^


McKayla Woodham and pal Kellie Varona pose for a pre-
launch photograph.


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
As her fellow Port St. Joe
Elementary third-graders
clamored for their turn at
Monday afternoon's Ignite the
Imagination rocket launch,
McKayla Woodham stood in
the back of the line, nerves
aflutter.
In her hand, she grasped
McKayla's Meteorite, the
self-named cause of all her
troubles.
She had decorated the
rocket in Jo Clements' class,
aided by the Port St. Joe High
School physics students,
who promised that Monday's
launch would be a blast.
But McKayla was not so
sure.


As she waited in line,
her fearless classmate Kellie
Varona offered some sage
advice: "Just don't look at the
people in front of you."
But that wasn't it, thought
McKayla as she held her
parachute-stuffed meteorite.
It was the push of the button
and the smoke-filled blast, the
rocket rising swiftly overhead.
"It's not the people,"
McKayla told Kellie. "I'm just
afraid to do it."
The classroom rocket
lectures had not eased her
mind, nor had her recent
field trip to the National Naval
Museum in Pensacola.
No amount of airplanes,
flight simulators, or Imax
movies could make her feel at
ease holding that rocket.
She was grateful only for
one thing her last name,
"Woodham," which always
secured her a place at the end
of the line.


McKayla's Meteorite read-
ies for lift-off.


"I've always had bad luck
with my last name," noted
McKayla. "It's usually a bad
thing, but this time, it's a good
thing."
But with that long wait
came insidious doubts. Would
the strong winds carry the
rocket beyond the baseball
field fence or would a worse fate
befall McKayla's Meteorite?
"I hope mine doesn't get
stuck in a tree," said McKayla
as she cast a glance at the
towering pines.
If it wasn't for bad luck,
McKayla would have no luck
at all, and she wanted people
to know it.
"I went to a birthday party
and we got to have makeovers,
and I was even after a dog,"
she offered, citing yet another
indignity.
To make matters worse,
her head hurt from tracking the
rockets' progression through
the sky. She vowed not to look
up again, and inched closer to
the starting line.
While she waited her
turn, McKayla tried heroically
to rally herself.
"If I get it off my mind, I'm
not too nervous," she said to
no one in particular. "But now
that I put it back on my mind,
I'm nervous."
Up ahead her classmate's
rocket soared in the air, and
McKayla walked slowly to the
launch pad.
Down the line, two
rockets fired the Screaming
Meme and the American Wolf.
McKayla's Meteorite stood at
ready.
Physics student Jeremy
Couch, the rocket launch
emcee, pushed the microphone
in McKayla's face.
"What's your name?
What's your rocket's name?"
he asked.
A small voice answered.
"McKaylaWoodham, McKayla's
Meteorite."


With the launch controller
in hand, McKayla summoned
her courage and pushed the
button.
As she watched her rocket
shoot into space, a brief smile
spread across her face.
Her eyes followed the
rocket's path, and her feet
followed close behind.
McKayla made a run
for the baseball fence, then
stopped.
She knew it would be
useless to go any farther.
Twenty feet in the air,
McKayla's Meteorite dangled
from a pine tree limb, a bitter
climax to the dreaded day.
The world-weary McKayla
gazed at it in disgust. "I can't
believe my rocket. It's just my
luck," she insisted. "It is. I
have bad luck."
The diagnosis made,
McKayla shrugged and
rejoined her classmates.


McKayla's Meteorite makes
a crash landing in a pine tree.

Taste of the Coast Committee Stages Another Successful Fundraiser


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
Those who attended the "A Taste of the Coast" celebration at
the Centennial Building on Saturday enjoyed fine art and good
food, and contributed needed dollars to several outstanding
organizations.
When all the checks were counted, the event grossed around
$15,500, with funds benefiting the Chamber of Commerce, the
Gulf County Scholarship Committee and two art scholarships
for area residents pursuing an arts education.
The auction, which featured donated artwork in numerous
mediums, netted $7,000, with proceeds benefiting the two art
scholarships and art endowment general fund.
Taking home prizes in the contribution drive were Bob
Windolf, who drove away a new golf cart; John Webb, who won
a laptop computer; and Sonny Chafin, who took home a sleek,
flat screen television. Profits for the drive netted over $4,000
for the scholarship committee's general fund.


Attendees at Saturday night's main event enjoyed food from
Amanda's Bistro, Dockside Cafe, Loggerhead Grill and other area
restaurants. Photo by Debbie Hooper.


Sam Kates, who donated an original painting of the old
Butler's restaurant bridge, also displayed his work at the park.
Photos by Despina Williams.


A limited edition photography book with images of John
Lennon and autographed by Yoko Ono drew great interest among
auction goers.


Alex Henderson, an auction contributor, showcased his nietal
sculptures at Saturday afternoon's Art in the Park event.

News Column
Faith Christian School


Today is the National
Day of Prayer. The National
Day of Prayer was estab-
lished in 1952 by a joint
resolution of the United
States Congress and signed
into law by President Harry
S. Truman. Faith Christian
School believes and teaches
that the United States was
born in prayer and founded
on a relationship with God
while instituting His biblical
principals and moral values.
Students will spend time
today praying for what is
known as the Freedom Five:
government, media, educa-
tion, church and families.
This year's theme verse is
"Those who honor Me I will
honor" (1 Samuel 2:30). For
more information about The
National Day of Prayer you
can go to the website, www.
ndptf.org
This weekend the faculty
and staff will enjoy a Teacher
Appreciation Dinner. This is
not a dinner to be enjoyed
after a frazzling day. No sir.
This is in appreciation for a
tremendous school year! It
is just a small way that FCS


can say "thanks" to a season
of accomplishment. Great
job men and women of Faith
Christian School!!
"The Crayon Box Song"
will be the featured skit for
our Kindergarten Graduation
program next week. Little
ones in K-4 and K-5 will all
be dressed in the various
colors of this special "box"
with a wonderful message.
Parents will also be delighted
to hear their children sing
and read. Join us at Long
Avenue Baptist Church,
Friday, May 12m at 6:30 P.M.
for this colorful and memo-
rial program.
Please pray for the stu-
dents going to Belle Glade,
Florida (near the Everglades)
on a relief mission trip May
18th through 23rd. Money
is being collected for those
traveling south. Remember
to bring in your extra change
and pour it into the mis-
sion's jars on your teacher's
desks. Students also have
the privilege to pay a dollar if
they want to dress down on
Friday.

ONE LAST THING
TO PACK!
Whether you buy or sell a
home, you will face moving
day. It should be a happy
occasion, and you can in-
vite Uncle Sam to the party!
That's because if you're relo-
cating and working in a new
place, you could qualify for a
generous deduction on your
income tax return.
Regardless of whether you
own or rent, or whether you
itemize your deductions or
take the standard tax deduc-
tion, you can deduct qualified
moving expenses. There are
two "litmus tests," the first
of which is that your new job
location must be at least 50
miles further away than your
old job. Second, you must
remain and work full-time for
39 out of the first 52 weeks


Even Lf youi haven't yel worked
all .39 o'f Lhoe weeks when
you file your next return, you
can still claim the deduction.
If for any reason you do not
fulfill that requirement af-
ter filing, then you'll have to
amend your next year's re-
turn to delete those moving
costs.
What sorts of expenses quali-
fy? Hiring movers (or just the
moving truck), storage costs
(up to thirty days), even the
gasoline if you drive from your
old home to your new one. So
before your move, designate a
folder for all of your receipts,
because the more you can
substantiate, the more you
can claim! Happy Motoring!

a free consultation. Wayne

Are You Shackled?

Are you still shackled with the chains of sin?
If you're still living for Satan there's no way to win.
The things of the world will drag you down,
Happiness won't last, you'll soon wear a frown.
Satan makes things look good, but there are just for a
while,
Nothing Satan offers, compares with being God's child.
If you'd like to break the chains of sin, open the door and
let Jesus in,
He knocks and is patiently waiting for you.
There is just one handle on this door, what are you going
to do?
I pray you'll open the door and let Jesus in.
Without Him, eternity in hell will be a long time, friend.
Billy Johnson




DoMAO Dance Team

DoMAO, an interdenominational worship dance team
from Port St. Joe will be performing live at Living Word
Fellowship Church in Panama City at 6:30 p.m., Saturday,
May 13.
The live performance will be recorded and the group's
first DVD will be produced by Fellowship Media, a ministry
of Living Word Fellowship. The performance taping will be
open to the public.
The team performs a variety of dance styles, mixing
hip-hop, ballet, modern dance and others into a blend that
subtly draws their audience into the worship experience.
DoMAO is an acronym for "Dance of Many for an Audience
of One," which also explains the group's focus and mis-
sion.
"Members of this team have discovered something that
was missing in their lives prior to joining the group. They are
now able to express themselves to their God in a way that
.is fresh, exciting and liberating, and that's why their per-
formances are so contagious," explains Connie Lamberson,
DoMAO's leader.
For more information about the group or about the
live taping contact Lamberson at 899-7791 or visit www.

l of


The Port St. Joe Middle
School and High School
Odyssey of the Mind Teams
competed in the State
Competition, Saturday,
April 8h in Orlando, Florida.
Odyssey of the Mind, an
education-based creativity
and problem solving program,
encourages students to apply
their imaginations and their
ingenuity to solve problems.
OM teams then match
their skills against those
of their peers in a regional
competition. At each regional
competition, the teams must
solve a long-term problem
and a spontaneous problem.
The top teams in each region
advance to the state finals.
This year both the Port St.
Joe Middle and Port St. Joe


High School teams advanced
to compete in the state
tournament.
Port St. Joe Middle School
competed against nineteen
other teams in their division.
The Middle School team
choose to solve a difficult long-
term Classics problem. To
solve this problem, the team
had to create and present
an original performance that
included a scene that took
place in ancient Egypt. The
presentation had to include a
pharaoh, or king, or a queen
and five ancient Egyptian
works of art/artifacts created
by the team. The performance
also had to explain about the
construction, of an ancient
Egyptian architectural
structure with a plot twist.


The team had to set up and
perform their solution within
the eight-minute time limit.

FORGOTTEC GARDCHIHG


By: Kay Kelley
Ah, red mulch. The Color
That Ate the North has finally
made its way south, after
the years, and is taking over
landscape beds like dollar
weed. The color ranges from
a nice subtle brownish red to
a garish, screaming orange-
red, that, like the barfly who
has latched on to that bottle
of Clairol, doesn't care how
artificial it looks.
You'd think I would be
whooping and hollering and
praising Jesus for the arrival
of red mulch. It has, after all,
proven to be a great equalizer
for the mulch industry.
Consumers are not requesting
cypress mulch specifically so
much now; they ask for red
mulch. You already know how
I feel about the slaughter of
innocent cypress trees which
are ground up to prettify our


yards. I equate it to killing a
beautiful animal to wear its fur,
when so many other materials
will keep us warm. For the
most part the red mulch we
are buying in bags now is
made from 'hardwood sources',
which means it comes from
whatever goes through the
chipper that day. Some comes
from scraps from the lumber
industry, some comes from
old pallets, some comes from
the piles at municipal landfills
where all sorts of scrap lumber
and yard debris are chipped
and shredded. Mix in a little
red dye, and it all looks pretty
much the same. That's called
recycling, folks, and that is a
good thing.
Or is it? There has been an
email circulating the internet
for the past few months warning
about the spread of Formosan
termites in mulch coming out


We wi trg,ni.s you at


aUt yom culitotne.


of Louisiana from trees blown
down during last summer's
hurricanes. The origin of the
warning seems to come from the
Cooperative Extension Service
of the State of Louisiana, and
they would know about those
Formosan termites. The claim
has been largely disputed by
other experts who reassure
us that wood products coming
out of that area are rigorously
inspected, and that termites
'probably' wouldn't survive the
chipping process in any shape
to be able to breed, and that if
the chipping doesn't kill them
the heat produced by a large
pile of mulch probably would.
Maybe. In any case, a good
gardener knows that mulch
of any type should never be
placed right up against the
foundation of a house. Termites
seek cover to get to your house,
and several inches of bare dirt
will discourage them.
On the way to researching
the Formosan termite issue, I
learned a lot of things I didn't
know about wood mulches
in general. For instance, if
a diseased tree is cut down,
chipped, and sold as mulch,
the pathogens which weakened
the tree in the first place can be
translocated to healthy trees of
the same variety around which
the mulch might be used. And
I knew, but had forgotten,
that hardwood mulches in the
landscape will rob nitrogen
from the soil to assist in the
process of breaking the wood
back down into soil. Without

extra nitrogen to feed the
plants as well as the mulch,
this 'nitrogen immobilization'
can slow down the growth of
established plants, and even
starve new plants to death.
According to Dr.- Hoitink,
Professor Emeritus at Ohio
State University, dyed mulch
in particular is deadly when
used around young plants or in
brand new landscapes. Hmm.
And then there is artillery
fungus, also known as 'shotgun'
fungus. This little miracle of
nature thrives in wood mulches
in most parts of the eastern
United States, though I didn't
see any mention of it being a
problem in Florida. It seems
this fungus will 'shoot' its
spores towards alight reflecting
surface and can hit targets
up to thirty feet away. If not
cleaned off immediately, these
spores will exude a natural
glue which permanently sticks
them to your house, or your
car. The result is little black
sneckles which don't come off.

.Chairman McLemore called
the workshop to order at 5:02

SMALL-SCALE MAP
AMENDMENTS

Attorney McFarland dis-
cussed a packet that he submit-
ted to the Board regarding S.B.
360, which allows counties in
the Rural Area of Critical Con-
cern (R.A.C.C.) to increase the
acreage allowed for small-scale
map amendments to 20 acres
(the cap is currently 10 acres).
the meeting at 5:05 p.m., E,.T.>
He stated that there is an 80-
acre annual cap on small-scale
map amendments. After discus-
sion by Planner Richardson that
the County approved 13 amend-
ments last year for approxi-
mately 76 acres, members of the
Board and staff discussed that
this change could rapidly use up
the annual acreage amount al-
lowed. After further discussion
regarding the economic impact
involved, the Board agreed to
request that E.D.C. .and Gulf


County C.D.C. present draft
criteria which could be required
for the small-scale map amend-
ments within 1 week.

HOSPITAL UPL/LIP

Commissioner Williams
discussed the possibility of the
County participating in the L.I.P.
(Low Income Pool) Program in
reference to the indigent funding
for the new hospital. He stated
that by participating in this pro-
gram, Gulf County could receive
an additional 17% in funds gen-
erated by the one-half cent sales
tax. County Attorney McFarland
discussed that they would need
to ensure that the funds are re-
ceived from A.H.C.A. before the
annual bond payment is due.
After further discussion, the
Board agreed for Commissioner
Williams, Attorney McFarland,
and Chief Administrator Butler
to meet with A.C.H.A. represen-
tatives to initiate Gulf County's
participation in this program.

ABANDONMENT BUTLER
BAY ROAD

Chairman McLemore pre-
sented drawings and discussed
the proposed property to be ex-
changed for the abandonment
of Butler Bay Road, stating that
he is opposed to this proposal.
Commissioner Williams dis-
cussed the negotiations, town
hall meetings, etc. regarding
this project, stating that the
key issue is public access to the
beach. Commissioner Barnes
stated that he is also opposed to
the proposed exchange. Com-
missioner Williams discussed
the amount of property that
the County owns, stating that
the only access they have to the
beach is at the bridge. missioner Traylor entered the
meeting at 5:35 p.m.> Commis-
sioner Peters discussed the need
for further negotiation with the

company, stating that a giving
away 2 acres in exchange for
1/4 of an acre is not fair. Com-
missioner Traylor stated that
he was late tonight because he
went to the site and he does not
believe that what has been pre-
sented is acceptable to the tax-
payers of Gulf County.
Steve Bradley, Brad Daven,
and John Giles, of the New Or-


chard Group, appeared before
the Board to discuss their pur-
chase of the property on each
side of Butler Bay Road. Mr.
Bradley discussed that this
was the first proposal, and they
are willing to negotiate further
because it must be a win/win
situation for them and for the
County. Chairman McLemore
thanked them for coming before
the Board to discuss this mat-
ter.
Upon call for public com-
ment, the following members of
the public appeared before the
Board to discuss this issue:
Jim Garth, of Decorative
Flooring, appeared before the
Board to state that he believes
this company and its develop-
ment will be a great asset to Gulf
County.
Benny Roberts appeared
before the Board to discuss his
concern regarding the exchange
of 2 acres for 1/4 of an acre. He
stated that he is also concerned
about the construction of public
restrooms. Upon his inquiry,
Commissioner Williams stated
that the ongoing maintenance of
the facility would be the respon-
sibility of the City of Port St. Joe
(due to their recent annexation
of this area).
Doug Kelly appeared before
the Board to inquire about ac-
cess for emergency vehicles if
Butler Bay Road is removed.
Commissioner Williams stated
that the plans for project de-
velopment include a different
access point into the area, and
it will not be a gated commu-
nity. Mr. Kelly stated that the
County should keep the road
and have public access points at
the bridge.
Edward Wood appeared be-
fore the Board to request that
the County not abandon this
road. He stated that this area
should be kept for use by the
public because people have been
enjoying it for many years.
There being no further busi-
ness, the workshop did then ad-
journ at 6:08 p.m., E.T.

CSTCI-, isnP FQl trvittC I 7 ui nfv aurroud o r6yeaP Jy 4


Century I
By Kristanna Gilbert
I rolled over and the red
lights of the alarm clock
were glaring in my face,
reading 6 a.m. "It is WAY
too. early for school," is the
first thought that very slowly
entered my head. I dragged
myself into the shower and
as I was washing my hair
and becoming more aware of
my-surroundings, images of
college life bounced around
in my head as I anticipate
the' activities of the day. At
6:45 a.m. I was out the door
and -on the road bound for
the high school where plen-
ty of people awaited our 7
a.rm. departure. Among the
multitude were The Century
Program Scholars, funded by
the -Foundation for Excellent
Schools, who provide men-
toring, educational trips and
stresses goal-setting. Also, a
handful of mentoring lead-
ersihip students, a few of
Mr.' Belin's students and a
select few mentors. We were
headed to the capitol city
to explore the larger than
life world of college. After a
horrendously long, drowsy
bus: ride, with no breaks, we
arrived in Tallahassee.
'.Our. first stop was
Tallahassee Community
College, commonly referred
to as: TCC. We split into two
groups, with each group being
assigned a TCC Ambassador
as a tour guide. We explored
every inch of TCC, exclud-
ing the Dean's offices. We
started at One Stop Hall,
which contains offices to reg-
ister ifor many things, such
as school registration, park-
ing,.permits, school ID's and
financial aide offices. After
thai,. we made out way to
the' gym, the library, which
is only open until 10 p.m.,
and around the general cam-
pus to see the layout of the
school. We passed science
buildings, English depart-
meftis and computer labs,
while getting information on
ho-y the school operates. As
our' tour wound down, ques-
tiorls, were answered and the
bus'e'f boarded by children
content to mull over what we
had just learned.
-After a T-rong turn and
a missed road. we' made it
to Florida Agricultural and
Mechanical University,
FAMU. Pulling into the park-
ing. lot right beside the foot-
ball field, we were greeted
by our guide who immedi-
ately informed us that the
marching band, the "FAMU
Marching 100," has ,per-
formied at Emmys and with
popular hip-hop artist Kanye
West. We started our on-
foot .tour of FAMU -at the
football stadium and walked
all :about the campus which
is located on the highest of
sevpn hills in Tallahassee.
We' Walked past on-campus
beauty salons, classrooms,.
bookstores, restaurants and
dorms. By the way, FAMU's
dorms are not co-ed. They
dori't allow men into the
wornen's dorms and women
are< not allowed in the men's
dorms, which is their own
little way of promoting celi-
ba(y. We made our way from
one 'side of the campus to
the other to see their College
of the Year Award from the
Princeton Review. They were
+the first college to receive this
prestigious award followed
by Harvard, Yale, Princeton,
Duke and Oxford. That was
pretty cool to learn. On our


Program I
walk back to the buses, we
passed many sidewalks and
trees adorned with Greek let-
ters. Upon questioning, we
found that FAMU is a HUGE
Greek community with many
historical fraternities and
sororities. Many questions
were asked and answered
until we made it back to the
bus. Boarding that bus was
absolutely glorious. It had
been a long, hot, tiresome,
yet very informative tour.
And we were ready to sit in
some air-conditioning again.
Sitting on the bus, driv-
ing through the streets of
Tallahassee, all you could
hear' were the two phras-
es, "I'm hungry" and "When
are we gonna get there?"
Everybody was ready to eat.
We parked the buses and
made our way to the Florida
State University Student
Union. Restaurants, book-
stores, smoothie shops,
computer depots and stu-
dent booths surrounded us.
We headed for the first place
with food. Some of us ate at
a Hardee's, others at a sushi
bar, while some went to the
pizzeria. After we all finished
eating, we had over an hour
to explore "The Union." Just
about everybody went to
the FSU Bookstore and the
smoothie shop. Some tuck-
ered out kids just sat on the
benches, some of us talked
to students about campus
life and some people just
walked around soaking up
the Seminole sun. Once
our time was up, we met in
the center of the union and
made our way back to the
buses where we drove to the
entrance to Doak Campbell


field Trip
Stadium and met our tour
guides. Bus number one,
my bus, had Patrick, and
bus number two had Jason.
They got onto the buses and
through the intercoms told
us all about Florida State
University.
I found the FSU tour was
most informative, entertain-
ing and interactive. Our guide
not only told us about what
programs and majors FSU
has to cfffr, but he gave us
basic history of the college,
surprising me with the fact
that FSU was originally an
all-girls school. He present-
ed other helpful tips about
dorms and classes and all
kinds of interesting things.
He even shared a little tradi-
tion with us. According to
his and his friend's beliefs,
you are not officially an FSU
student until you get thrown
into the fountain on your
birthday. I found that quite
amusing. After we saw a lot
of the main buildings class-
rooms, dorms, the union and
their gorgeous library, which
is open until 2 a.m. we got
back to Doak Campbell a
little ahead of schedule. As a
special treat, we got to walk
through the doors where
the band runs onto the field
during football season. We
took pictures of the field and
in front of the huge doors
adorned with a Seminole
head. No touching the actu-
al field, though. It was the
opportunity of a lifetime. As
pictures wound down, we
slowly walked back indoors
and to yet another book-
store. Some people shopped
but a friend and I talked to
our tour guide about FSU,

asking him questions about
Greek life, why he chose
FSU, the honors program
and scholarships, among
other things. After ushering
everybody out of the store so
we could get back on sched-
ule, we all piled onto our
buses, waved to FSU and
headed home.
All-in-all, it was an
extremely fun-filled trip and
I believe we all learned a lot
about college life, as well as
about what to expect once
we get into the "big leagues"
ourselves. To sum it up,
Olivia Lamberson said, "I
had a really awesome time.
Being able to walk around
the campuses and experi-
ence just a little bit of what
is to come for us soon was
absolutely amazing."

Thatch, which causes

As I said, thatch is a plant
residue problem. A healthy
lawn produces vegetation
very rapidly. As long as
production of plant tissue
exceeds the rate of decay,
thatch will accumulate. Over
watering and over fertilizing
contributes to thatch buildup
by stimulating excessive
growth. Leaving excess
clippings on the lawn after
mowing will add to a thatch
problem. Failure to maintain
a favorable soil environment
for bacterial growth
decreases the rate of thatch
decomposition.

and, when necessary,
