Confessions of a Retired Beekeeper


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
At the end of a winding path that cuts through the river swamp,
past a narrow bridge fashioned from an old boxcar, retired beekeeper
L. L. Lanier reclines on the front porch of his Wewahitchka cabin.
He props his feet up in a chair to ease the.blood flow to his limbs
and makes a joke about his recent visit to the doctor, which ends
with a 200-pound woman lying on his legs.
: Lanier grins and lights another Camel. .
For years, Lanier has treated visitors to stories of his family's
three generations in the tupelo business, the 108-year-old legacy
that continues with his son, Ben. who on Friday was still collecting
honey from bee boxes along the Apalachicola River.
The industriousness of bees, the mysteries of weather, the gam-
ble at the heart of tupelo production they are topics Lanier loves to
discuss, but they are by no means the only stories in the 83-year-old
raconteur's repertoire.
'Another story I'd like to tell you," Lanier begins, and what fol-
lows are tales of his refusal to meet the pope "1 don't worship any
man," and the time he served drinks to Hank Williams "Bless his
old heart, he was a sad sack."
The honey draws people to Lanier. but they stay for the stories.
'You don't have to be crazy to be a beekeeper, but it helps." he


says with a roguish grin.
Then he takes a drag and tells another story.
Born in a Beehive
Lanier has crafted a mythic personal history.
"I was born in a beehive, raised in a bee yard and cut my teeth
on a shotgun barrel and an outboard motor handle," he said of his
Wevwa-hitchka boyhood.
Lanier's father, Lavernor Laveon Lanier, Sr., was a pharmacist
who tended bees wearing a white shirL aid bow tie.
He came down the river as a boy with his father, Ben, a doctor.
who traded his Alab.ama farm for a houseboat.
After a rewarding apprenticeship with an area beekeeper, he
convinced local philanthropist Sidney Aldermian to loan him $500,
money he used to purchase his first hives- round, homemade skeps
that arrived in Wewahitchka by steamboat.
Lavernor Sr. was a widower with a teenage son, Edgar, when he
met Kate May Jones, a school teacher from Rock Hill, South Caro-
lina. who could figure numbers. at age nine.
Educated in Blountstown. Jones taught mathematics at schools
in Altha and Grand Ridge, before relocating to Dalkeith.
"That's where she slipped." said Lanier. "That's where she met

Mexico Beach Mayor Chuck Risinger Dies


By Marie Logan
Star Staff Writer
Mexico Beach lost a long-time member
of its small community oh Sunday, as Mayor
Charles (Chuckl Risinger passed away in the
early morning hours at his home.
He suffered a sudden, fatal heart attack,
leaving family, friends, and city employees in
shock.
Risinger was halfway through his term as
mayor, having taken office in June, 2005.
He is survived by his wife, Connie,
two children, two stepchildren, and seven
grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held Thursday,.
May 18, at 10 a.n. CT, with full military'
honors, at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic
Church on 15th Street in Mexico Beach.
A visitation will be from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Central Time on Wednesday, May 17, at the
church.
In lieu of flowers, the family asked that
donations be made to the Mexico Beach
Volunteer Fire Department.
A native of Illinois, Risinger served as a
career firefighter in the Air Force for 26 years,
reaching the rank of fire chief and retiring as
a Chief Master Sergeant in 1987. He moved to
Mexico Beach in 1992, entering city politics
first on the Planning and Zoning Board, then
as a City Council member from 2001 to 2005.
He worked in fire research for Tyndall Air
Force Base from 1987 until his election as
mayor of Mexico Beach in 2005.
As the city staff worked to keep the
municipality running, one employee described
the mood:
"It's so hard to believe, he was so


Chuck Risinger
(11/17/42 5/14/06)


energetic."
Henry Flack, the
city administrator.
echoed the sentiment.
"It's a very sad. day
for the city, but the
entire city staff and all
the city employees are
pulling together. We're.
going to get through it
and make sure nothing


falls by the wayside:"
According to Mexico Beach Chief of Public
Safety Guy Hall, who is also the city's police
chief and fire chief, Risinger was dedicated to
the fireFighters.
"His support for the fire service was
unmatched," said Hall, "and his support of
the firefighters and fire department will be
sorely missed."
Because of Risinger's career as a
professional fire fighter in the U.S. Air Force,


he will be buried with both full military and
firefighter honors, including an Air Force and
fire service honor guard.
According to Hall. there will be no funeral
procession after the service, but there will be
a fire senrice escort for the family, beginning
at the mayor's residence, up U.S. 98 to 15th
Street to the church.

County to Graduate


Nearly 120
By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
Spring means mortar-board tossing time.
Graduates from the county's public high
schools will pile into gymnasiums this week
as nearly 120 seniors make that passage from
high school to adulthood and college, voca-
tional training and jobs.
Following a respite, naturally, called
Project Graduation.
Seniors finished up with finals last week,
with this week one of preparation and tying
up loose ends.
Final grades were still being factored into
grade point averages on Tuesday afternoon,
the drafting of a kind of Santa Claus list of
those who topped their classes, achieved high
honors and honors,, still to come.
Next week The Star will publish the list of
those high honors and honors graduates but
for this week we have produced a keepsake
graduation tab inside that we hope the Class
of 2006 will hold onto and peruse from time
to time, remembering and, maybe, chuckling
or shedding a tear.
The lineup for the coming week, as more
than a hundred sheepskins are handed out.
along witLh hundreds of thousands of dollars
in scholarship money, is as follows:
Wewahitchka High School
The Gators get things started in the coun-
ty when the high school holds Baccalaureate
services at 7:30 p.m. CT on Wednesday, May
17, in the high school gym.
Graduation takes place at 7 p.m. on,
Saturday, May 20, in the gym.
Jessica Jones is the class valedictorian
with Hall Price, who will provide the gradua-
tion address, the salutatorian.
William Chason will lead graduates
and audience members in the "Pledge of
Allegiance" and Shane McDonald will offer the
invocation.
Jennifer Wigglesworth will welcome grad-
uates and attendees and Courtney McMillion
will provide the senior sponsor recognition.
The ceremonies will close with a fare-
well address from Heather Simmons and the
Benediction by Justin Barnes.
Graduates are encouraged to take part in
Project Graduation, with a caravan meeting
at the high school following the graduation
ceremonies to travel over to Rocket Lanes
in Panama City Beach, where the lanes and
facilities have been cleared for them.

By Marie Logan
Star Staff Writer

Painting in Mexico Beach, Port St. Joe,
Gape San Blas, Wewahitchka, Indian Pass
and Apalachicola, the painters have produced
one to two paintings each, per day.
On Friday, May 19, the culmination of
all the work will be displayed for purchase
during a "Great Gatsby Summer Beach Party"
at WindMark Beach in Port St. Joe.

under the stars, backed by music from blues
great Charles Atkins, the noted Florida State
University instructor, songwriter, pianist and
singer.
.: Tickets to the event are $100 per person.
Por ticket information, call 850/648-4041.

Gail Novak: One ot the forces behind me
plein air painters coming to the area, Novak
has been teaching painting classes annually for
the past six years at the Driftwood Inn in Mexico
Beach.


Linda Blondheim: One of the co-founders of plein air Florida, Mary Jane Volkmann: "That's what's fun
five years ago. "We wanted a clearinghouse for painters, to give about being in these paint-outs so many art-
them information. I think that's been instrumental in firing the ists who see the same thing in so many different

Charles Dickinson: "To observe first hand, in the outdoors, that immediacy is
better transferred to canvas than in the studio. It's like a banquet, being outdoors.
Being a professional painter and being outside, capturing nature, is a real joy for
me."

Established 1937 Serving Gulf county and surrounding areas for 68 years


CDC Seeks to Create Perpetually Affordable Housing


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
For the last eight months,
the Gulf County Community
Development Corporation
(CDC) has pursued a project
it believes will provide a
permanent fix for the county's
affordable housing shortage.
The goal is to create a
Gulf County Community
Land Trust, a not-for-profit
corporation that ensures
the permanent affordability
of housing by removing the
traditional stumbling blocks
to homeownership.
To ensure the project
meets expectations, the
CDC has enlisted the aid of
consultant Michael Brown of
theVermont-based Burlington
Associates, who has lent his
Community Land Trust (CLT)
expertise to corporations
and communities across the
country.
According to Brown,
current affordable housing
initiatives provide subsidies,
in the. form of grants or loans,
which enable limited-income
buyers to purchase non-
affordable homes.
The CLT employs a
different strategy by removing
the price of land from the
homeownership equation.
The procedure works this
way:
The CLT acquires,
through purchase or out-
right donation, parcels of land
within a geographic area, and
retains ownership of these
parcels in perpetuity.
While retaining ownership
of the land, the CLT leases
the land to homebuyers
through 99-year, renewable,
inheritable ground leases.
,Homeowners are
required to perform upkeep
and maintenance on, their


property, but are not saddled
with the costs of purchasing
the land on which their
homes sit.
While CLTs create initial
affordability by removing
the land costs from the
homeownership equation,
they maintain affordability
through an appraisal-based
resale formula defined in the
ground lease.
The CLT orders a
market appraisal at the
time of purchase. When the
homeowner wants to sell his
home, the CLT conducts a
second market appraisal,
and calculates the home's
appreciation from the time of
the initial purchase.
A homeowner can then
list the home at the purchase
price plus 25 percent of the
appreciation.
According to Brown, the
resale formula enables seller
to recoup their cash equity
and earned equity while
reaping a "fair" percentage of
the home's appreciation.
Future homebuyers, in
turn, will have the opportunity
to purchase a home well
below the st.inid.ird market'
price.
"The fundamental
proposal is, if we're going to go
to the substantial investment
and hard work of making a
house affordable. We need
to make sure that benefit
is there for the long-term,"
Brown said
The caveat in the
CLT -'equation is property
taxes, which are the sole
responsibility of CLT
homeowners.
With dramatic property
tax increases in Gulf County
in recent years, those who
buy homes from the CLT may
feel the pinch,.


"If taxes are based on
market value, monthly
payments have the ability to
escalate beyond homeowners'
ability to pay," said Brown,
who noted that CLTs have
successfully lobbied local
taxing authorities and state
officials for property tax
relief.
Brown and CDC executive
director Dannie Bolden
would like CLT homeowners
to be taxed according to
their homes' resale, and not
market value.
"There should be
consideration given to
permanently affordable,
price-restricted homes," said
Brown.
Bolden noted that he
has discussed the issue with
Property Appraiser Kesley
Colbert, and is exploring all
alternative solutions.
The CDC is currently
applying for non-profit
status for the Gulf County
Community Land Trust,
and will play a guiding role
in structuring the CLT's
tripartite board.
One third of the board
will be comprised of CLT lease
holders, one third of non-
lessees from the surrounding
community and one third
of public officials, nonprofit
providers and other public
representatives.
The need for affordable
housing in the county is
evidenced by the current
median salary ($43,300)
and home price ($208,000)
figures.
According to Brown, a
homebuyer would need to
earn an annual salary of
$80,000 to afford a home in
that price range.
"The gap between housing
costs and what people can


A Real World Example


A Community Land Trust property has a market

value of $200,000 ($120,000 for the home and $80,000

for the land).

A homebuyer who enters into a lease agreement

with the CLT pays $120,000 for the home and

exclusive use of the land.

When the buyer wishes to sell his home, .

the CLT orders an appraisal, and finds that

the home and land now have a market value /

of $300,000. an appreciation /

of $100,000. -.

The homeowner captures $25,000

(or 25 percent) of the appreciation, ..

and lists the home for $145,000 "4* M"

(the purchase price of $120,000

+ $25,000), and the home remains

affordable. j


afford to pay is.getting bigger,"
said Brown, noting that the
affordability gap poses an
acute problem for" school
teachers, law enforcement
officers and other moderate
income professionals.
Addressing the aesthetics
of CLT homes, Bolden
noted that they "look just
like any other houses in
the community," and bear
no resemblance to housing
projects.
Brown believes CLT
homes can serve as stepping-


stones on the path to market-
driven housing.
He cites a recent study
conducted in Burlington,
Vermont, which found that
75 out of 100 former CLT
homeowners went on to buy
a market-priced home.
The CDC is working
closely with local developers
and St. Joe Company
leadership to, create housing
proposals, and Bolden has
received commitments for
CLT lots on both ends of the
county.


"There's' nothing magic
about the land trust creating
initial affordability," noted
Brown. "Somebody has to do.
the hard work of making the
home affordable in the first"
place."
To gauge the public's:
interest in the Community
Land Trust, the CDC:
is currently conducting-
.a community housing.
assessment.
"We need to get a feel
for what the community's
interests are," Bolden said.

Five Good


A tantalizing glimpse perhaps, but a brief
explanation on a possible new county budget
document last week could be labeled by many
taxpayers as just about the most encouraging
five minutes in the Board of County
Commissioners' meeting room in months.
We'll start with plaudits for Clerk of
the Circuit Court Becky Norris, charged as
the county's record and budget keeper. She
said last summer that she'd peruse budget
documents in other counties for potential
improvements to the template in use in Gulf
County for years.
And Norris, with a significant assist from
her team, clearly has done so, as last week's
five minutes of examination of one new look
was provided to the public and commissioners
by Commissioner Bill Williams.
We will also tip the cap to the Commission
for, at least at the moment, by all evidence
seriously considering a move away from the
tried and tired to new territory zero-based
budgeting, transparency in spending, just for
starters. i_
The budget page presented last week as
an example of how such concepts might look
in full-color on paper could be construed as a
light at the top of a deep hole for beleaguered
taxpayers.
Boiled to basics, the budget document
Presented spending line by line.. Each
expenditure was parsed from every pool of
departmental money so that department
heads, and more importantly commissioners,
could justify each dollar spent.
It would provide the public, the taxpayers,
a more user-friendly model while shining the
light on every dollar commissioners spend.
For taxpayers, this is an opportunity to hold
.feet to fire, for commissioners. an opportunity
to demonstrate stewardship; those represent
the two balanced sides of the equation.
The caution in the optimism, of course, is
that last week's five good minutes were little
more than a tantalizing fantasy.


M


Commissioners as a group must still
' adopt such a procedure and document for the
upcoming budgeting process.
Just as they must actually absorb and
act upon recommendations to come out of an
independent audit of procedures and budgeting
in the next couple of months for the audit to be
more than a needless and costly exercise.
This is why it's really up to the taxpayer
at this point.
It is their responsibility to attend budget
workshops and meetings in the coming
weeks and months, their
responsibility to impact
change among commissioners "The

already conducted workshops
and hearings -typically a daylong workshop
followed by the mandatory public hearings
and it was too late in the process to make
substantive changes.
Sort of like students .when the regular
teacher leaves the classroom.
Don't blame us commissioners seem to
be saying if spending seems out of control, if
we assess double-digit tax increases with little
obvious evidence of an increase in services, if
our behavior in budgeting isn't ideal.
As an aside, in fact, it would be hard to
make the argument for too much of an increase
in services in the past year, as an example,
given the number of employees the cotuty has
lost and the openings that remain wufilled, in
some cases for months.
But the central message is that il taxpayers

want a responsible, efficient, transparent, lean,
budget, they must be present in body to make
their demands heard.
And hope that commissioners will listen
and act accordingly, which can sometimes
seem like betting a 50-to-1 shot at the Kentucky
Derby.
Though we'd make the argument that the
concept is distressing in that it upends the
equation for elected offices, the truth is to
paraphrase a Port St. Joe city commissioner
if enough people show up and shout loudly

enough, commissioners might
be willing to pass a resolution
that the sky is green.
If no one is in the room,
they might not agree on blue.
Another reality, aptly
demonstrated last summer,
is that when commissioners
say it's too late in the process
once they arrive at the final
two public budget hearings,
they do so, symbolically, with
fingers crossed behind their
back.


After saying in the first
hearing last year that the budget was as low
as commissioners could limbo, they somehow
reached deep enough to shave off another
million and half dollars or so days later,
indicating that with a little push and sharper
knives more fat could have been trimmed.
We liked what little we saw two weeks ago
from the commissioners.
We hope they maintain momentum in that
direction, toward a more user-friendly budget
document and a budget approach that ensures
an end to waste, a honing of efficient delivery
of services and transparency in spending.
But recent history tells us that ifthe public
has stepped out of the room when the budget
is put together in the coming months, all bets
are off.

Around the World
SSomehow it always amazes just how
far beyond the county lines our community
spreads.
In the past couple of years, for example, we
at this newspaper have received several pictures
of soldiers fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan
holding their latest delivery of The Star.
More than 150,000 page views a month
on our website and the letters to the editor on
issues such as beach re-nourishment provide
evidence of readers in Georgia, Indiana,
Michigan, Texas, Ohio, Alabama and, in one
instance, New Zealand.
It is heartwarming on two levels, one as
a reporter attempting to provide a newspaper
that is "community" in every way possible, and
secondly in that folks who have traveled from
our county to far-flung locales still get enjoyment
out of reading the hometown news.
Below, find a picture of Maud Martin,
scanning The Star that arrived that week in the
mail.
Maud, you see, continues to keep up on
the happenings,in Gulf County though she now
resides in Port St. Lucie and is, trumpets and
drum roll please, 102 years old.
Ms. Martin's roots in Port St. Joe stretch
way back, to 1936. when the young woman,
recently married to one Chris Martin, moved to
Port St. Joe.
They would open the first furniture store in
town and Maud also demonstrated a relatively
new-fangled device known as the Singer sewing
machine.


Still Hunkering Down!


I bet you a hundred folks have asked me
why I stopped putting "Hunkering Down With
Kes" as the head of this little weakly blurb. You
`guvs never cease to amaze mel I thought me.
Mom and Leonard Kindig were the only three
people actually looking at this thing.
Mrs. Smith wanted to know if I had stopped
Hunkering!
A friend waved me .down coming out of the
court house and asked if LaRenda Bradfield
had died.
ChLff Sanborn called to see if Mary E. Pend-
,leton had finally caught up with me!
The simple truth is I didn't do nothing.....
THEY did it for me! I reckon THEY are the folks
'that look after the best interest of this newspa-
'per and they made an executive call that "Hun-
kering" is no longer fashionable.
I think The Star is now owned by the same
folks up in New York City that makes that tortilla
sauce for Texas cowboys...;. And let me quickly
say what we have all realized for years-the pa-
per is right! Hunkering went out with aluminum
legged kitchen tables and moon hubcaps. I ap-

our time are dying out. And the ones that are
still with us have a hard time dropping down
on their heels.
But you all know me. I'm a hard old boy to
change! So if you don't mind I'm going to keep
right on Hunkering...'.you just are going to have
to look a little lower to find me!
And for the youngsters that might be tuning
in this morning let's review a couple of things.
"Hunkering down" is where the men of my gen-
eration used to gather up in front.of the gen-
eral store or at a church picnic or in front of
city hall waiting for election results or, out in
the front yard when they were taking a break
from work and they'd simply bend their knees
and ease their body down till their posterior
rested near 'bout on their heels. They'd wrap
their arms around their knees-the good ones
would rock gently back and forth-and carry
on'a lively discussion about hog prices, the ris-
ing cost of gasoline, what the government was
doing wTrong and how Clem Haskins's corn was
lagging behind the rest of the valley.
-It was a slow pace for a "hot in a hurry"
generation.
There were (and are) some tremendous
advantages to Hunkering. You can just naturally
think better low to the ground. Why. some of the
best ideas we ever had came when we "were just
Hunkering"! We were Hunkering the afternoon'
Ricky Gene came up with the plot to kidnap
Cynthia Wheat. And we were Hunkering when
we thought about the vine ripe tomatoes and

there was'no pecking order, pedigree or finan-

They knew whose kids would work, and whose

Maud and Chris would have two daughters.
Ouida IBunni) and Kathy. They would also help
raise the children of Maud's sister.
She was also an excellent seamstress who
made many a bridesmaid or prom dress for
young ladies in Port St. Joe. Her. daughter,
Bunni, walked down the aisle to her nuptials in
one of Maud's dresses.
When their daughters had grown and left
the nest, Ms. Martin became the curator of the
Florida Constitution Museum and Mr. Martin
became judge in the Small Claims Court.
In 1969, after 40 years of marriage, Mr.,
Martin died at age 72 and Ms. Martin departed
the museum and Port St. Joe for Chesapeake,
Va., to be closer to her daughters.
Ms. Martin is now the grandmother of four
and great-grandmother to three.
All this was detailed in a newsletter from the'
Breezy Point community in Port St. Lucie where
Maud, daughter Bunni and granddaughter
Chris have lived for nearly two decades.
'; he fank Bunni for submitting the
newsletter and picture and. for allowing us to
talk a bit about Maud, a woman who conquered
tough early setbacks born in Panama City,
Maud lived in Chipley and Millville before her
mother died. when Maud was 15, leaving her,
the oldest daughter, responsible for taking care,
of the family and ending a promising singing
career.
She didn't sing professionally, but her voice
.filled many a church in the south as Maud stood
out as a choir soloist.
Ms. Martin attributes her long life to
"constantly staying active, not dwelling on
problems and doing for others."
She also has a small glass of wine from
time to time.
Gaze at pictures of Ms. Martin and one will
see a woman who certainly doesn't appear to
be 102.
Her skin secret is simple "Stay out of the
sun."
Even though she lived along the gulf for
years, Ms. Martin insisted that her children
stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 2
p.m. Regular use of Ponds skin cleanser also
helped.
My thanks to Bunni Ziegler for sharing
the story of her remarkable mother, arid for
underscoring for all of us in this office that
the responsibility to our readers extends well
beyond the geographic and demographic
boundaries of Gulf County.

Commentary by TIBOR R.
MACHAN
Freedom News Service


Sometimes political dis-
cussions assume that what
America needs is a return
to something in its past, the
"good old days," where the
principles of the American
Founders reigned supreme.
Alas, there were no "good old
days" like that. In fact, on and
off during the past two centu-
ries, Americans of all stripes
showed quite varied degrees of
respect for those principles.


Were No


From the start, even apart
from the travesty of slavery,
there had been much dis-
pute about whether the quite
explicit embrace of classical
liberal principles funda-
mental, natural rights, lim-
ited government, separation of
powers and so forth in the
Declaration was what Ameri-
cans should incorporate into
their national and state con-
stitutions. Benjamin Franklin,
for example, had little patience
with the idea that the right to
private property is a natural
right. As he put the point:
'"All the property that is
necessary to a man for the
conservation of the individual
and the propagation of the
species is his natural right,
which none can justly deprive
him of: But all property super-
fluous to such purposes is the
property of the public, who by
their laws have created it, and
who may therefore by other
laws dispose of it, whenever
the welfare of the public shall
demand such disposition. He

commission seat m the City of
Port St. Joe.
Mr. Davis ran a clean
campaign nm fact,' both
:candidates 'should be
commended for the tenor of
their efforts to hold that seat
the next two years which
'came up a bit short last week.
In the story. I mentioned
in the final sentence that I was
unable to reach Mr. Davis on
Tuesday night for a comment.
That sentence was injected
to alert readers that an
attempt was made to reach the
candidate, entirely in the spirit
of fairness for both victor ancd
'defeated, and simply couldn't
be reached that night.
However, that sentence
was misinterpreted by sqme
to indicate that somehow Mr.
Davis had tucked tail and run.
Nothing could be further
from the truth.
By the time all ballots
had been counted on' Tuesday
night there was about a 30-45


minute window in which to
complete and file a story on
a deadline that requires this
newspaper to be on the press
on Tuesday night. "
This narrow window was
further constrained by the fact
that I had the wrong phone
number for Mr. Davis entirely
my bad and was therefore not
calling him but some innocent
party who was apparently in
the middle of a long phone
conversation because I got
nothing but a busy signal.
None of this is any way an
excuse, but an explanation of
how the newspaper and Mr.
Davis could not be connected
the night of the election.
We would :-be remiss,
therefore, in not stressing that
Mr. Davis was gracious and
congratulatory to Mr. Roberts
- according to those at the
Elections Office when the
results were clear and was
professional and gracious

So, basically, apart from
your toothbrush and gar-
ments, you do not really have
a right to property, only the
highly contingent privilege ac-
corded to you by politicians.
Like it used to be with those
monarchs who claimed to be
in charge of everything!
Alexander Hamilton was
also an explicit supporter of a
powerful federal government
and opposed the Bill of Rights
(although, he claimed, because
listing some such rights could
lead to the rampant violation
of others). And among influ-
ential intellectuals, there were
many who had little respect for
the founding ideas. For exam-
ple, Frank J. Goodman who
was the founding president of
the American Political Science
Association, a professor at Co-
lumbia and for 15 years presi-
dent of Johns Hopkins Univer-
sity, penned an influential book
of "progressive" ideas, "Politics


use of technology in perspec-
tive. It is basically govern-
ment surveillance without just
cause.
Many Americans say, "Why
should I care? I have nothing
to hide."
In a perfect world run
by angels, such government
snooping would not be prob-
lematic. However, we are a
world run by men and women
who have their faults. The U.S.
government has proved itself
wholly untrustworthy -with
such information.
For example, here in the
United States, we conduct a de-
cennial census as required by
our Constitution. The mandate
is simply to count the number
of people living in the United
States m order to divide rep-
resentation in the legislative
branch. However, the U.S. gov-
ernment has greatly expanded
the uses of the census and col-
lects tons of information from


and Administration" (1900,
and just reissued by Transac-
tion Publishers) considered
the principles (most of) the
Founders embrace an impedi-
ment to what he took to be a
highly desirable big govern-
ment.
A Hegelian, who held that
principles do not last but
change with each historical
period, and who also champi-
oned energetic government in-
tervention for all kinds of wor-
thy purposes, Goodman, along
with a host of other academics,
mounted a sustained attack
on America's main Lockean
founding principles. As he put
the point:r
"The rights which [an in-
dividual] possesses are ... con-
ferred upon him, not by his
Creator, but rather by the soci-
ety to which he belongs. What
they are is to be determined by
the legislative authority in view
of the needs of that society.
Social expediency, rather than
natural right, is thus to deter-
mine the sphere of individual


us, including salary informa-
tion, ethnic background, reli-
gious preferences, etc.
When Japan attacked the
United States in 1941, the
government used information
it had gathered in the census
to round up all Americans of
Japanese .descent and put
them in prison camps for the
duration of the war.
That is the danger of gov-
ernment collection of data. Re-
gardless of how benevolent the
initial collection of the infor-
mation nught appear. there is
no telling how the government
will abuse that data in the fu-
ture.
In 1928. the German gov-
erunent enacted a law that re-
quired gun registration. With
the law.the government sought
to curb gang violence between
Nazi Party thugs and Commu-

nist Party thugs. a benevolent
goal. However, when the Nazis
came to power in 1933. they


freedom of action."
This is indeed the main-
stream academic intellectual's
view of things today and has
been a prominent view all
along. It is, of course, quite
bizarre, when you analyze it.
How did the legislative author-
ity get to be that authority, for
example, if those who elected
them got their rights from the
legislative authority? No start-
ing point for such a process
could be located, so, as we say
in such matters, the idea is a
nonstarter. Democracy rests on
natural rights the members
of the public have a right to
liberty, which includes the lib-
erty to take part in public and
political affairs. This right, of
course, also limits the author-
ity that can be conferred on the
legislature, which is what folks
such as Goodman and many of
his contemporary compatriots
would just as soon forget.
The lesson here is that the
struggle for a regime of indi-


had an instant list of all gun
owners and they began to sys-
tematically disarm those who
were Jewish and other "unde-
sirables."
Even if the government
says it will only use the tech-
nology to hunt criminals, there
is nothing we can do if it de-
cides it wants to abuse the
data it collects.
If one needs proof of that,
just look at the debate cen-
tered on President Bush's ille-
gal domestic spying program.
Our laws require a warrant
before government can spy on
someone. However, the presi-
dent has ignored that law and
there is no recourse ifor us
against government abuses if
the government refuses to po-
lice itself.

hide and only my privacy to
protect. I certainly do not want

Men. Hormones and Hip
Fractures: Low levels of;es-
trogen put older men at risk
for hip fractures. That's the
finding of a study published
in the Journal of the Ameri-
can Medical Association. In
the study, researchers col-
lected data on 793 men. The
men's estrogen and testos-
terone levels were measured
between 1981 and 1983,
and they were followed un-
til 1999. Men with low es-
trogen levels -- lower than
18 picograms per milliliter
-- had 3.1 times the risk
of hip fracture compared
to men with higher levels
of the hormone, The New,
York Times News Service re-
ports. Men with low levels of
both estrogen and testdster-
one had a 6.5 times greater
hip fracture risk than men
with midrange or high lev-
els of both hormones. Low
testosterone by itself did
not appear to affect fracture
risk, the researchers said.
The study does not provide
enough information to rec-
ommend checking estro-
gen levels routinely in men,
since estrogen supplemen-
tation for men is not an op-
tion. Men at risk for osteo-
porosis should be sure they
get adequate daily vitamin
D, calcium and exercise.

A nasal spray vaccine
may do a better job than
shots at protecting young'
children from the flu. In a
study whose results were
presented this week. re-
searchers found that FluMist
spray vaccine was 55% more
effective at preventing flu in
children under 5. Currently.
FluMist -- which contains
a live weakened version of
the flu virus, rather than the
killed virus found in shots
-- is only approved for chil-
dren 5 and older, The As-
sociated Press reports. The
study looked at nearly 8,000
children age 6 months to 5
years in 16 countries dur-
ing the 2004 flu season. All
of the children were given a
nasal spray and a shot but
only one of these treatments
was real, while the other was
salt water. By the end of that
winter, 3.990 of the children
who got the spray vaccine
caught the flu, compared
to 8.6% of the children who
got injected vaccine. The re-
searchers also found that
the nasal spray worked bet-
ter against a new flu strain
that emerged during the flu
season. However, the spray
carried a slightly higher risk
of asthma-like wheezing in
children age 6 months to 2
years. The study was funded
by FluMist's manufacturer;
the company plans to seek
Food and Drug Administra-.
tion approval for use of the
vaccine in children under 5,
the AP says.

of how a human community
must be organized. But that
suggestions is highly mislead-
ing sadly most of those cel-
ebrating the Fourth haven't a
clue what it is all about. Few in
their schools would ever have
told them, that's for sure.
It is important to keep in
mind that what are the most
distinctive and insightful as-
pects of the American political
tradition have never been fully
embraced, especially by intel-
lectuals who gained enormous
influence in the country. So that
famous quip about the price of
liberty being eternal vigilance
is vital to keep focusing upon
and to follow tenaciously.

Liberty is not something
that you can give up a little
at a time. It is something the
government takes a little at a
time. And most people have
the attitude, "I have nothing to
hide, so why should I worry?"
And, when it does comee time
to worry, it is too late to do
anything about it.
If we value, liberty, we
must draw.,a line in the sand
' and hold our ground against
any and all encroachments,
regardless of how small they
might seem to us today-

PSJ City Commission


- No Summer Water Rates


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
Water those laWns and
gardens and fill those pools,
but residents of Port St. Joe
will see no breaks on their
water bills this summer.
City commissioners dur-
ing their regular bi-monthly
meeting on Tuesday declined
to overturn an earlier recom-
mendation from their city
manager to not implement
summer water rates this
year.
City Manager Lee Vincent
made that recommenda-
tion last month in order to
spur conservation as the
city's aging water plant nears
capacity.
"We are going to, like-
ly before August, reach the
maximum of two million gal-
lons per day (at the water
plant)," Vincent reiterated on
Tuesday. "There is no more.
You can't force more water
through that plant.
"The Northwest Florida
Water Management District
is really on us to conserve
water."
The city has routinely
implemented summer water
rates whereby residents pay
for any water used during
summer months, but the
sewer -portion of their bills
are kept at what is roughly
an average for usage during
winter months.
Sewer rates are directly


tied to the amount of water
used, but summer rates
remove that link and charge
residents only for the addi-
tional water used.
Commissioner Benny
Roberts, re-elected last week
to his Group III seat, said
that the summer water rates
were one of the most talked
about issues during the cam-
paign. And the issue_ was
raised again Tuesday by a
resident.
"Most of the people I talk-
ed to, it's not going to make
any difference" on any con-
servation of water, Roberts
said, who made a motion to
implement summer rates for
at least 2006.
Commissioner John
Reeves countered that the
city and area did not want
to turn into Central or South
Florida where development
and increasingly scarce
water supplies have spurred
"water wars" among coun-
ties and had eyes trained
north to secure water from
Northwest Florida.
"At some point we are
going to have to go to con-
serving before the new plant
is done," Reeves said.
The city's new water
plant, which would tap the
freshwater canal fed by the
Chipola River and which the
city owns, is likely at least
18 months from completion,
given timelines previously


provided by Preble-Rish
Engineers.
Roberts' motion to
implement summer rates
this summer died for a lack
of a second.
In other business taken
up on Tuesday night:
Vincent asked for a
two-week extension to bring
forward an ordinance allow-
ing golf carts on certain city
streets during certain times
of the day.
That ordinance was to
be brought before commis-
sioners for a first reading
and approval for advertise-
ment this week.
Police Chief James
Hersey, though, recently con-
ducted a fact-finding discus-
sion with Apalachicola offi-
cials to determine how they
went about implementing an
ordinance allowing golf carts
in specific areas of that city.
Vincent said a citizens
committee appointed. to
examine the issue and aid in
drafting an ordinance needed
time to consider the informa-
tion Hersey gathered.
With the city's trash
loader not in operation the
past three weeks due to a
blown transmission, com-
missioners discussed their
options, with the price of
overhauling the transmis-
sion pegged at $11,000.
"We are basically shut
down on picking up trash


right now," Vincent said.
The problem with the
existing trash loader is that
fixing the transmission comes
with little guarantee for long-
life and there is, Public Works
Supervisor John Grantland
noted, fatigue issues for the
hydraulics and bucket of the
current trash loader.
In the end, commission-
ers decided to proceed with
spending the money to fix
the transmission of the cur-
rent trash loader while pur-
suing the purchase of a new
Bobcat machine for roughly
$30,000.
"You need a back up any-
way," Roberts said. "We fix
that one and get back in
the business (of picking up
trash) and go out for bid on
the other."
Commissioners read
for a first time and approved
for advertisement an ordi-
nance which tweaks the
western boundary lines for
the annexation of the sec-
ond phase of the WindMark
Beach development.
Commissioners
approved spending $6,000
a year for a lease agreement
with Raymond Driesbach for
the North Port St. Joe sub-
station used by the Port St.
Joe Police Department and
the Gulf County Sheriff's
Office.'
Reiterating a stance
they had taken previously,


commissioners approved
moving forward with exam-
ining the scope of work and
costs of transforming a por-
tion of the old Washington
Improvement Group center
into a museum honoring
the former Washington High
School.
County commissioner
Nathan Peters, Jr., has urged
the project, which will come
to fruition only with city
approval since the city owns
the land on which the WIG
buildings sit.
Vincent advised that
Recreation Director Mike
Lacour was working with
Peters to determine what
work must be done to ren-
der the buildings inhabitable
again and the potential costs
to the city.
On a motion from
John Reeves, commissioners


charged Vincent and depart-
ment heads with coming up
with a list of long- and short-
term priorities, objectives,
capital expenditures and
how those priorities would
be funded.
With development rising
in various portions of the
city promising a broader tax
base, Reeves said the city
needed to hone its priori-
ties as another budget cycle
approaches.
Roberts noted that with
some of the requirements
of the city contained in its
agreement with the county
over annexation of WindMark
Beach Phase II including
extending sewer to White
City and water to Highland
View and Overstreet the
city already faced daunting
capital expenditures with
unclear funding sources.

attached to the registered
voting address.
If a person owns more
than one property in the
project area, he or she will still
cast only one ballot, based on
the registered voting address.
The bond is set at $12
million on the ballot, although
the bond amount can be
reduced if actual bids for the
project are lower.
A higher-than-anticipated
dollar amount was placed
on the ballot because legally


the figure on the ballot is
the maximum which can be
bonded for the project, and
a "buffer" has been included
inrcost projections to provide
room for some variance
between projections and the
actual cost.
Actual bids cannot be
sought until the project
funding has been approved
and the project permitted by
both the state and federal
governments.
The current MSTU
ordinances automatically
terminate with the repayment
of the original beach
restoration bond, which
the St. Joseph Peninsula
Beach Advisory Committee
anticipates to be in 2013.
Half a dozen speakers,
including Gulf County
administrator Don Butler,
coastal engineer Michael
Dombrowski, and Phil Flood
from the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
(FDEP), were each given
15 minutes to address the
audience, mostly to recap
information that had been
presented at multiple earlier
meetings.
Dombrowski reviewed the
erosion rate on the peninsula
and the need for beach
restoration, citing research
that shows between 1997 and
2005 erosion rates almost
doubled for the peninsula
from the 10-30 feet annually
between 1973 and 1983.
He reminded people that


in the mid- to late-1800's, the
Cape San Blas lighthouse was
situated 2,700 feet inshore.
One audience member
asked why groins were not
being used to help prevent
erosion.
Dombrowski answered
that if Florida Department
of Transportation and Eglin
Air Force Base "come to the
table, then groins are still on
the table."
"The peninsula is sand-
starved," said Dombrowski.


"We still need to bring in sand
from an outside source no
matter what."
He told the audience
that he believed groins were
critical for stabilizing the
Stump Hole and south of the
area, and as far as he thinks,
"it's only a matter of Eglin
deciding that groins are in
their best interest over the
next 30 years."
He was referring to the
30-year projection of erosion
at the Stump Hole on the
south end of the peninsula.
At current erosion rates, Elgin
Air Force Base is projected
to lose $300-$400 million
worth of land over the next
three decades, according to
Dombrowski.
Flood, of FDEP, told the
audience that FDEP must get
construction easements from
all property owners in the


Since 1982


project area for access to the
beach.
If easements were denied
by property owners, the state
could either build around
them or take them to court.
Paula Pickett, Director
of the Gulf County Tourism
Development Council (TDC),
told the audience that the
TDC, with the county's
approval, had initiated a four-
cent transient tourist bed
tax, with one cent of the tax
assigned to help pay off the


MSTU bond.
The tax will be charged
to anyone living in rental
units in Gulf County less
than six months at a time.
Pickett anticipated $110,000-
$115,000 annually from
the one-cent portion of the
tax earmarked for bond
repayment.
Other topics reviewed
were the erosion control line
and the legal issue of private
ownership of beachfront;
primary access points and
their value in terms of federal
funds for the project; the
economic and fiscal impact
study of Cape San Blas
compiled in 2005 by Dr.
William Stronge of Florida
Atlantic University; and costs
incurred by Gulf County in
future monitoring of the beach
and future maintenance.

Veterans' Healthcare: A Promise


By Congressman Allen Boyd
Since I took office in 1997,
I have traveled throughout the
2nd Congressional District
talking to many of North
Florida's 71,000 veterans.
These heroic men and
women, who served our coun-
try with honor and distinction,
continually raise valid con-
cerns on crucial issues such as
the need for quality healthcare
and immediate access to this
care. Unquestionably, caring
for our veterans should be one
of our nation's most important
priorities, but with increasing
budget constraints and a new
generation of wounded sol-
diers returning from Iraq and
Afghanistan, it is clear that we
have a huge challenge when
addressing the needs of our
veterans today and tomorrow.
With a soaring national
debt, out of control deficit
spending, and funding prob-
lems within the Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA), difficult
choices are before the public
and Congress with respect to
our nation's budget priorities.
However, we cannot promote
fiscal restraint on the backs
of our veterans who have
already sacrificed enough for
our country. In order to ade-
quately fund programs that
are vital to veterans, Congress
must have a realistic and hon-
est portrayal of the funds that
are needed and the number
of new veterans entering the
VA medical system and then
make spending cuts in other
areas to fund these programs.
Unfortunately, the
Administration has not been
forthcoming about the fund-
ing needs of our veterans.
Last year, the Administration
acknowledged a $1 bil-
lion shortfall in veterans'
healthcare funding for 2005.
However, when all was said
and done, this funding gap
was closer to $3 billion, affect-
ing both 2005 and 2006. I
worked in Congress to fix this
shortfall with the passage of
an emergency supplemental
appropriations bill totaling
$1.5 billion.
The funding problems


don't end there. More than
260,000 veterans nationwide
who applied to receive health-
care at the VA in 2005 were
turned away because of the
Administration's decision to
limit veterans' access to VA
hospitals, clinics and medica-
tions. In Florida alone, over
27,000 veterans were denied
access to VA-provided health-
care.
Refusing to recognize this
injustice and considerable
strain on our veterans, the
Administration this year pro-
posed a new $250 enrollment
fee and an increase in co-pay-
ments on prescriptions from
$8 to $15 for certain veterans.
This was the fourth year in a
row that the Administration
has recommended higher fees
and co-payments in its budget
request, and Congress consis-
tently rejects these proposals.
While the Administration's

and a Priority
request boosts the VA budget.
by 10 percent, this is depen-'
dent on the new healthcare
user fee and the doubling
of drug co-payments, mak-
ing this increase superficial
at best. We should increase'
funding for veterans programs
by making cuts in other areas,'
not by taking it out of our vet--
erans' own pockets.
As in years past, I rejected
the Administration's proposed
increase in enrollment fees
and prescription co-payments
in the Military Quality of Life,
Appropriations Act for 2007,
along with other members
of the House Appropriations
Committee. The House will
vote on this legislation this,-
week, which provides a total':
of $136 billion in mandatory.
and discretionary funds for
veterans programs.

DENTAL NEWS FROM THE OFFICE OF


FRANK D. MAY, DMD, PA


LISTEN TO YOUR DENTIST

Occasionally a patient will insist that a painful tooth be "pulled." Although it may be that your
dentist will recommend exactly that, please listen to his/her advice before you insist on a particular
treatment. The advice could very well save you time, unnecessary expense, and give you a result that is
far superior to that which could be achieved if your suggested procedure was followed.
Your dentist is a skilled professional who has probably seen the results of whatever condition you
are presenting many times. He/she has had vast experience in achieving the kind of results you would
want. New techniques and materials make professional advice essential.
What once doomed a tooth to extraction may now be treated in a simple and comfortable way. The
loss of one tooth may initiate a series of problems which could require extensive treatment, unnecessary
time, reduced function and expense.

Ash Larry Signs with Edward Waters College


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
Just one year of varsity football paid off
in a college scholarship this week for Ashton
Larry.
The dual-sport standout at Port St. Joe
High School inked a letter-of-intent to attend
and play football for Edward Waters College, a
NCAA Division II school in Jacksonville.
"It feels good," Larry said. "I'm going
somewhere. I'm going off from home. I'm
looking forward to it, and playing football."
Larry had other suitors, Bluffton College
in Ohio for one, but while Larry wanted to
move away from home, the Buckeye State
seemed a tad too far, not to mention that
winter and snow arrives like clockwork every
year.
"It's cold up there," Larry said with a
chuckle.
Larry's path to a college football scholar-
ship was indeed a winding one.
He tried out as a freshman but that was
a year that due to numbers the junior varsity
season was cancelled and for the next couple
of years Larry, a 6-foot, 175-pounder, concen-
trated on basketball, where he was a shooting
guard for the Sharks.
As his senior arrived, though, Larry went
back onto the gridiron and quickly estab-
lished a foothold a starting wide receiver and
defensive back.
"He's very physical as a defensive back,
he will get right up there and hit people," said
Port St. Joe football coach John Palmer.
That is reflected in a season in which
Larry recorded 26 solo tackles, 28 assists,
had four interceptions and broke up 11
passes.


Maybe more importantly to the Sharks'
13-1 season which ended in a state Class 1A
football championship, Larry rapidly became
a go-to receiver for quarterback Mike Quinn.
The two repeatedly connected on big
plays, particularly fade patterns into either
corner of the end zone where Larry's size and
athleticism allowed him to out-work defensive
backs for the ball.


He scored a touchdown at Blountstown in
the season-opener, the only game the Sharks
would lose all year. Larry had big plays in
each of the next two games against Chipley
and Marlanna.
"He really grew after that first game,"
Palmer said. "You could see his confidence
grow. And having that big-play ability at wide
receiver really helped our offense, took pres-


sure off our running game."
Larry finished the season with 28 catches
for 508 yards 17.8 yards per catch and
seven touchdowns.
Again and again all season long, when the
Sharks needed a key play on offense, it was
often that Larry or Ash Parker stepped up.
In the postseason alone, Larry made two
critical receptions in the 3-0 win over Mayo
Lafayette which ultimately proved to be the
ticket to the state championship game. A huge
fourth-quarter catch along the sideline in the
championship game against Fort Meade led to
a crucial touchdown.
"They are getting a good kid who is really
untapped," Palmer said. "He's still a little raw.
If he gets on their weight program, add 20 or
25 pounds of muscle, he could be special."
Larry, who averaged 12 points, five
rebounds and three steals as a senior on the
hardwood will also consider walking on to the
basketball team at Edward Waters.
High school Coach Derek Kurnitsky put
in a word on Larry's behalf with the Edward
Waters hoop coach.
"I think Ash could be a good two-sport
athlete," Kurnitsky'said. "I've talked to their
coach and everybody needs someone like Ash
- he can defend and he knows the game. "He's
the best defensive player I've ever coached."
As for the payoff on a single year of high
school football, Larry said it was never a fac-
tor prior to the season. But once the season
was underway, the light bulb went on.
",It helped me get more confidence," Larry
said. "I started thinking I should be doing this
in college."
The coaches at Edward Waters clearly
agree.

Eight-run inning sends



Gators to state tourney


By Pat McCann
Florida Freedom Newspapers
Move over Cinderella.
You ain't got nuthin' on the
Wewahitchka baseball team.
The Gators may be an
unlikely entrant in the Class
2A Final Four tournament
starting Wednesday in Plant
City. But there are a lot of
teams sitting home right now
wondering why the slipper
didn't fit.
Wewahitchka isn't one of
them, because an eight-run
fifth inning propelled it to a
9-8 upset over Liberty County
on Tuesday. The Bulldogs, 28-
3, were the No. 1-ranked team
in 2A at the time.
They also had defeated
the Gators, 18-10, three times
this season. But that is getting
ahead of a story that begins
with first-year varsity head
coach Justin Smith.
A former Gulf Coast
Community College pitcher
who rose through the minor
leagues in the Cincinnati
Reds chain, Smith works in
the maintenance department
at Wewahitchka. Before this
spring he coached the middle
school and junior varsity pro-
grams for six years.
Smith, 34, wasn't even the
head coach at the start of the
school year, but applied when
the job became open prior to
the onset of practice.
"As a new coach I'm learn-
ing the ropes, but decided I'd
do the best job I could do,"
Smith said.
Results were slow in com-


ing. The Gators struggled on
the field, losing at one point to
Class 1A Quincy Munroe. They
lost three times to Port St.
Joe and three times to Liberty
County, the third by the run
rule in the District 4-2A cham-
pionship game.
The fact they defeated Port
St. Joe in the semifinals was
surprising, as Smith said two
players missed that tourna-
ment due to disciplinary sus-
pensions.
Then, Smith said, Wewa's
best hitter, Sean Bierman, was
ejected in a game and sus-
pended by the FHSAA from
further participation in the
postseason.
"When I was playing
sometimes we'd go on a long
road series, and I told them
it was very hard to sweep
a team four games," Smith
outlined the challenge to the
Gators. "That's why I took the
approach I did with the boys.
It's very very tough, no matter
who they are.
"With our top three play-
ers sitting out we just coached
our younger players to make
them do it."
So Wewahitchka took a
modest 15-10 record into the
region tournament, along with
a pair of freshmen, Patrick
Gates and Ryan Leaman, who
were among JV callups at the
end of the season and wound
up playing as regulars.
Two of the suspended play-
ers returned, outfielder Ryan
Ranie got hot at the plate, Dee
Baker and Tyler Bush helped


supply some power offensively,
and the Gators started win-
ning. Barely.
First they edged Altha 5-
4. Then they eliminated Jay
9-7. That set up the fourth
game against Liberty County
in Bristol.
"Right now our strength is
hitting," Smith said. "Our past
two games we've scored nine
runs. But it's been a total team
effort. It's really hard to pick
one out of the group."
The Gators entered the
fifth inning trailing Liberty
County 7-1. Starting pitcher
Stetson Rich lasted only one
out as the Bulldogs poured
across four runs. Johnny
Jones come on in relief and
pitched well, but Wewa still
trailed by six.
Smith was at a loss on
Wednesday to summarize the
Gators' rally. Rich, who went
3 for 3, had a big hit, he said,
"and after that the ball just
started rolling our way."
"Once we got the lead
(Jones) shut them down. He
got stronger and stronger."
Jones struck out the side
in the seventh inning and the
Gators were headed to only
their second Final Four in
baseball since 1988...
"I've had some of our kids
come up and ask was it a
dream or did we really do it,"
Smith said.
They should have known
better. Seldom do dreams
come out this good.


Lady Gators Fall in State Semifinals

By Jason Shoot
Florida Freedom Newspapers
Another trip to the state semifinals, another disappointing return home.
Wewahitchka surrendered four runs in the top of the seventh inning, and the team's six errors
doomed the Gators min a 4-1 loss against'Bishop Snyder of Jacksonville in the Class 2A softball
semifinals Wednesday afternoon.
Bishop Snyder 125-71 beat Hollywood Christian (27-5J the following day 3-1 in the state cham-
pionship game. Hollywood Christian defeated Mount Dora Bible 9-0 in the other semifinal. ,
Wewahitchka's season came to an end as the Gators suffered only their second loss in 30
games.
Wewahitchka mustered only three hits at.the plate against Cardinal starter Taylor Wright, and
the Gators couldn't score a,run until the bottom of the seventh. .
Wright improved to 24-7 with the victory. Wewa starter Samantha Rich fell to 16-2.

This Egg Shaped Oval
called "The Track Too Tough

first win in 11 races this year.
Biffle led 170 of the 367 laps of
the Darlington Dodge Charger
500. The win moved Biffle up
six spots in the points stand-
ings bringing him up to 14th
place.
"I was praying for help, I
was begging, 'Let them give me
a lane,'" Biffle said. '"A lot of
guys just showed respect out
there."
Jeff Gordon finished sec-
ond with lapped cars getting in
the way on the last lap killing
his forward momentum and
keeping him in second place.
Gordon has won at Darlington
six times.
"It was just a great run
for us, so close and momen-
tum that we can carry into
next week and the next couple
weeks at Charlotte," Gordon
said. "I'm very happy."
Dale Earnhardt Jr., fin-
ished in fifth place in spite of
feeling ill. he visited the infield
care center earlier in the day
and got a dose of Zithromax.
"I was sick when I got here
and I went to the infield care

Mexico Beach City Council Balancing Multiple Projects


By Marie Logan
Star Staff Writer
The May 9 Mexico Beach
City Council meeting was
a hodge-podge of issues,
beginning with a presentation
of Certificates of Election
to council members Robert
Ginsberg and Gary Woodham
by Mayor Chuck Risinger.
Both Ginsberg and
Woodham were re-elected to
the council without opposition
when their terms ended.
A presentation by
Mary Anne Koos, of the
Florida Department of
Transportation, on the
,benefits of the newly-installed
pedestrian crosswalks on U.S.
98, raised some questions
from the audience.
Koos, Bicycle and
Pedestrian Coordinator,
District Three, of Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT), said her office had
been assessing the pedestrian
environment in coastal areas
for the past six or seven
years, "trying to watch trends
and stay ahead of them."
She said she had "collected
data on pedestrian- related
crashed in Mexico Beach, and
from 1985 to 2004, 60 people
in Bay County had been killed
on state highways."
Those figures are for the
entire county, not exclusively
Mexico Beach.
Koos also cited that she
had received numerous calls
from individuals concerned
about pedestrians crossing


U.S. 98 in Mexico Beach and
put them in touch with each
other. The result was the
small group of Mexico Beach
residents who pushed the
crosswalk issue with FDOT.
Koos took comments
from the council about the
crosswalk sign at the city
boat ramp, which council
members considered in the
way of boat trailers and that
the sign must be moved.
Council member Al Cathey
told Koos that, "At the boat
ramp, anything you do to
impede boaters causes a'
traffic hazard. With this sign,
they have no place to pull off
of 98."
Koos said she would get
a crew to town to study how
and where the sign could be
moved.
Then Ginsberg spoke,
reviewing the city logo .
issue, the public review of
city finances, and a recent
television news bite on the
city's finances.
He encouraged people to
"let it go," that the "previous
city council had been held
hostage by an audit that cost
the city $75,000."
He then talked about
someone vandalizing
Woodham's car during the
last city council meeting,
stating "this kind of meanness
and hatred can destroy our
town."
"Do not let a few angry,
angry people destroy the
dreams of a lifetime,"


,


The crosswalk sign at the city boat ramp is being considered
for relocation.


continued Ginsberg. "Call us
- we want to help."
When the meeting was
opened to public comments,
former mayor Kathy
Kingsland spoke, addressing
several of the topics Ginsberg
had just covered and refuting
his comments.
Then she asked why .the
city's building fund had been
closed, and what happened
to the money in the account.
"I know Henry [Flack, city
manager] would not have done
this without authorization,
so did the council authorize
them to remove the funds
from the building fund, and
why?" asked Kingsland.
Flack answered, stating
that they had done an analysis
of the building fund because
the auditors "brought it to
-our attention," stating that
"through March there was
$93,000 in the account."
"It was my call to move the


funds when the city entered
into a new contract with
EPCI [Building & Planning
Department Services],"
said Flack. "I made a false
assumption that those funds
would not be restricted
anymore, and that was not
the case."
In other business before
the council last Tuesday:
Chris Forehand, vice
president of Preble-Rish
Engineers, reported that funds
for beach re-nourishment had
been obligated and contracts
ready to start the project.
He said the city's Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection permit for the re-
nourishment expired in early
August, so the city needed to
"get it done," or the permit
could be denied if it expired
and the city had to re-apply.
The permit contained
provisions for turtle season
and the requirements to
work around the turtles, said
Forehand.
Flack reported then that
the city, in a prior workshop,
had investigated taking out
a $500,000 loan from a local
bank at 7.75 percent, with


/6g


4DRO'


I
.1


a 25 percent set-up fee, to
hold as a backup if Federal
Emergency Management
Agency allocations were late.
Flack reported that if the
project was a "pay upfront
case," then the city would get
reimbursement from FEMA.
Woodham questioned the
loan, stating that he thought
the city was planning to use
$300,000 in city funds first;
then use the $500,000 if
necessary.
A motion was made
and, seconded to approve
the beach re-nourishment
project, to use city funds to
pay as much as possible,
and to set up the $500,000
line of credit as a stop-gap
measure.

Audience members
then raised questions about
the berm and its location.
Forehand said this berm was
not the current emergency
berm on the beach,- that this
project would start at the
mean high water line, be
three to four feet tall and
20 feet wide, and that the
existing berm would remain
in place.
Cathey asked how many
financial institutes did the
city go to for loan quotes, and
was told only one.
He said the beach was the
city's only natural asset, but
this was a tough call, that was
probably "the least amount of
gamble with FEMA," but the
city must stay on target with
the invoices.
Risinger replied, "We're
on a very favorable footing
with FEMA. We're different
from other waterfront
communities and I think they
understand that now."
The motion then passed
unanimously. 11
Forehand next presented
a cost estimate for the Mexico
Beach bike path master
plan, which Preble-Rish had
designed, of $1.5 million for

the entire project. Risinger
commented that this would
be a capital improvement
project, related to impact
fees, and said the city would
get back to Forehand with
the additional information he
needed to continue working
on the project.
Connie Risinger, wife
of the mayor and president
of the Mexico Beach Civic
Association, showed the
council two examples of
banners the association
wanted to purchase and
install along U.S. 98, with the
council's permission.
Describing the banners
as seasonal, for the different
city events, she said sponsors
could purchase small ads at
the bottom of each banner
to help pay for them. All of
this, said 'Connie Risinger,
goes through the Community
Development Council (CDC),
and that they wanted 18
right away, in time for July
4. CDC and Mexico Beach
Special Events were to fund
the initial 18.
There was a discussion
among city officials about
laws pertaining to banners
and their locations on power
poles. The banner idea was
scheduled to come before
the council again when all
questions concerning right
of ways and permission
from Progress Energy were
answered.
The "sexual predator"
ordinance, which was read
at last month's meeting,
was read again and adopted
unanimously. Similar to other
ordinances passed in several
surrounding municipalities,
the ordinance limits where
convicted sexual offenders
can live within the Mexico
Beach city limits.
The next item 'evoked
a rather lengthy discussion
about the accounting firm
currently conducting the
city's annual audit.'
Two motions to approve
payment of varying amounts
to Carr, Riggs & Ingram, LLC
for auditing services were on
the agenda.
According to. Flack, the
amounts were in addition
,to what was budgeted by
-the city, because the city
underestimated the cost of
the audit.
Both motions required
budget amendments, one
from the General Fund for
'$4,489 and one for $6.773
from the Water Fund.
Cathey repeatedly
'-.questioned why the
accounting firm was billing
so much more. when, he said,
"as of one month ago no one
in Mexico Beach knew they
owed this money."
When other council
members agreed that a better
explanation for the additional
" billing was needed, the
motion was made and passed
* unanimously to table the.
-approval of payment until the
-,end of the month, in order to
explore the billing further.
The final major item
.of the evening concerned
the prison work force under
negotiation between the mayor
and Gulf Coast Correctional
SInstitute.
According to Risinger,
".under the terms of a contract
currently under review with
the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement in
Tallahassee, the warden of
Sthe correctional institute had
identified 12 prisoners who
would work exclusively for
Sthe city of Mexico Beach.
with the maximum number
of prisoners working in town
at any one time set at eight.
Under the contract, the
city would provide a working
supervisor and transportation
for the prisoners each day.
The project cost was based
on using prison labor four
days per week. but Risinger
said he wanted them five
days a week. Cost for the
project was $14,500, with
implementation four to six
weeks away. When Cathey
asked if the city had the
money, Flack assured him
that "the money is there."
Cathey also asked if the
city was organized enough to
"get our money's worth" out
of a prison work force, and
Public Works Director Troy


Williams said yes.
Since Cathey wanted to
see the contract between the
city and the state for the
labor force before voting, the
motion to approve the project
-was tabled until May 28th.

Research Director
On April 25 2006, the
Mexico Beach Artificial Reef
Association deployed five new
reefs in the Gulf waters west
of St. Joe Point. These reefs,
located approximately 27 nau-
tical miles southwest of the
Mexico Beach canal entrance,
were deployed by Walter
Marine of Orange Beach,
Alabama. The reefs are com-
posed of a total of 53 "Florida
Special" concrete pyramid reef
modules. 45 of these mod-
ules were funded by a $40,000
grant to the City of Mexico
Beach issued by the FWC and
the Federal Aid in Sport Fish
Restoration Program. 8 mod-
ules were purchased by the
MBARA using privately raised
funds.
Keith Neel, MBARA
Research Director, JayPrentice,
MBARA Vice-President, and
Bill Horn, FWC grant program
director monitored the deploy-
ments. Mike Guthrie of Reel
Time Video Productions pro-
vided additional video cover-
age.
"These deployments take
a lot of time and effort," Bill
Horn said. "We think that the
MBARA does a really good job.
We support them. Their volun-
teer work, allows the FWC to
more effectively use the grant


dollars that we are allocated."
"The FWC grants provide
a huge boost," Keith Neel said.
"They allow us to build addi-
tional large reefs that comple-
ment our reef building pro-
gram. These .are critical as
more people come to our area
to enjoy the local boating and
fishing."

Times City Editor
A shooting in downtown
Apalachicola early Saturday
morning has led to the arrest
of a Port St. Joe man on
a charge of attempted first
degree murder,
Johnny Arnez Williams,
26, from Port St. Joe, was
arrested without incident
Sunday following an inves-
tigation by Lt. Steve James
of the Apalachicola Police
Department.
James was called to inves-
tigate the shooting, which took
place near the intersection
of Avenue D and Commerce
Street a short while before
1:10 a.m. on May 13.
Officer James Thomas
had been called to the scene in
reference to shots fired on the
sidewalk in front of the Owl
Cafe. Deputy Brett Johnson
and Deputy Ronald Jones,
from the Sheriff's Office, also
were on hand to interview wit-
nesses.
According to James'
report, witnesses said Mark
Devin Creamer earlier in the
evening had gotten into a ver-
,bal argument with Keith Ray
on the dance floor of the Owl
Cafe's bar, the Night Owl, at 75
Commerce Street.
As Creamer was leaving in
his car, witnesses said Williams


fired a small caliber handgun
several times at the vehicle, a
four-door Ford Grenada, as it
drove away.
James searched the
area and found three 25-
caliber shell casings on the
south side of the Owl Cafe.
The casings where sent to the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement crime lab for fur-
ther analysis.
James later interviewed
Creamer who confirmed that
he had earlier gotten into a
verbal argument with Ray.
Creamer told the officer that
when left the establishment,
several males rushed him as
he tried to enter his car, and
that Ray had struck him with
his fist through an open car
window. 0
Creamer identified
Williams as the man who had
fired the shots at his car as it
drove towards Water Street.
James found four bullet holes
in the driver side of Creamer's
vehicle.
The following day James
and Officer Chet Turner spoke
to another patron who said
they had seen Williams fire the
handgun at Creamer's vehicle.
Williams was charged with
attempted first degree mur-
der and taken to the Franklin
County Jail.

Cathey Assumes Mayor's

Chair in Mexico Beach

The Mexico Beach city council met in emergency
session on Tuesday evening to appoint a mayor for the
remaining year of the term of the late Chuck Risinger.
> Council member Al Cathey, as mayor pro tem, was in
line to ascend to the position, as stated in the city charter.
Cathey opened the meeting by telling the other three
council members, the city administrative staff, and the
seven people in the audience, that he was "personally in a
dilemma" about whether he could devote enough time to
the office to do an adequate job.
After expressing his feelings about his restrictions in the
job, Cathey asked for comments from the group.
Council member Gary Woodham gave his full support
to Cathey, telling Cathey to start delegating some of the'
mayoral responsibilities.
"While Chuck retired so he could devote all his time to
being mayor, I don't think most mayors of small towns give
their whole lives to being mayor, so I think you can do it,"
Woodham told Cathey.
Council member Robert Ginsberg told the mayor-
elect he was a "good counter to Chuck," calling Risinger
"a visionary who was looking three to four years down the
road.
"You're the one who looks at daily things and that's what
we need right now and in the next two years," Ginsberg said
to Cathey. "We've got a lot of local things we need to take
care of, so I think you're the right one for the job."
Remembering that Risinger, "took all different routes
and multi-tasked because he had the time," council member
Curtis Dale told Cathey that "each of us needs to pick up
things in our own areas of expertise," and promised Cathey
his full support.
After only half-jokingly telling everyone that "we won't
forget the promises made here at this table." Cathey
accepted the position of mayor for the remaining 13 months
of Risinger's term.
Then he made the motion to name Ginsberg as mayor pro
tem. The motion was seconded and passed unanimously.
The new mayor and council then set a three-week
period, until June 7. for people to send in nominations to fill
Cathey's now vacant council seat.
On June 7, in an already scheduled workshop/
meeting, the mayor and council will select Cathey's council
replacement from the nominations received.
This person will serve on the council for the remaining
year of Cathey's term.
The council, along with input from the city staff, decided
to close Mexico Beach City Hall on Thursday until 1 p.m. CT
so city employees could attend the service for the former
mayor.

FWC Addresses Concerns with Battle Bend Restoration


By David Adlerstein
Florida Freedom Newspapers
The removal of about 64,000
cubic yards of sand and sediment
blocking the lower end of Battle Bend
slough on the Apalachicola River
was met with concerns last week
at an information meeting held in
Apalachicola.
Marilyn Blackwell, a longtime
activist on behalf of saving the
Apalachicola River, said she dis-
agreed with the plan to dredge the
portion of the Battle Bend that is
downriver from where the bend first
veers off to the east from the main
navigational channel.
The juncture Blackwell was
addressing seems the logical place to
start, and representatives from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission took a great deal of time
at the May 10 meeting to explain how
they, too, had first thought that the
best way to do the project would be
to remove the impediment that the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers put in
1987 when they plugged the upper
end of Battle Bend Slough.
The Corps' plugging caused the
river to flow faster and scour the
channel for barge travel, and in the
process washed silt into the down-
stream entrance, cutting off the lake
from the river. Battle Bend is 30
miles upriver from Apalachicola.
Charlie Mesing, a biological


administrator with FWC, said Corps'
engineers advised FWC that remov-
ing that dike at the top of the Big
Blend slough would not have the
desired effect unless the state agency
was willing to spend millions more
dollars removing the shortcut that
keeps the river from meandering
through the slough..
As it stands now, FWC is spend-
ing $1.94 million to complete the
project, after the Corps backed off
and told them that the restoration
work fell outside the federal body's
jurisdiction.
Mesing said the engineers said
there would remain the uncomfort-
able likelihood that that strategy
would not work, and that the rapidly
flowing river would silt up quickly.
Instead, they opted for the less con-
troversial and more reliable option
of unplugging the lower end of the
slough, with a promise to clear it out
in future years as needed, if at all.
Helen Light, from the U.S.
Geological Service, provided
Blackwell with a series of aerial pho-
tos that showed the progress of the
slough's filling in.
"The lower part of the bend had
silted in so that at low flow times,
often corresponding to spawning sea-
son, the fish can't get in there," said
Michael Hill, an FWC fishery biolo-
gist. "We're doing it for the fish pri-
marily and secondarily the anglers


can reap some of those ben-
efits. There'll be a lot of fish t '
in there that are going in E-
there to forage and spawn."
The excavation project ater
will create a 200-foot by |
1000-foot channel, recon-
necting the river with the
lake, with the contractor
expected to begin the proj-
ect in June. Hill estimated
that it would take between
3,000 and 4,000 truckloads
to transport the sand from
Bloody Bluff landing, about s
15 miles upriver, and take ".,
it to the site of Franklin ;
County's new consolidated
school.
"We're giving them the
material and they're glad to
get it and it will be filling in
the borrow pit there," said
Hill.
Mesing, fisheries biolo-
gist with the FWC, said ,
reopening Battle Bend
Slough is the first of what he
hopes are many projects to
restore degraded fish habitat The
on the Apalachicola. levels ii
Mesing said construc-
tion of the Jim Woodruff Dam at
Chattahoochee in 1957, and subse-
quent Corps practices to accelerate
the flow of the river, such as dike
fields and eliminating bends in the

n terms of cubic feet per second.


river, have led to the river entrench-
ing itself, and in the process, isolat-
ing dozens of once-productive creeks
and backwater lakes.
Officials are asking people to


move their houseboats from the con-
struction zones at Battle Bend and
Bloody Bluff. No one was at hand at
the meeting to object to that request.


Juniper Jam Land Management Upsets Hunters


By Dale Kingon
Times Staff Writer
A parcel of land acquired
through a state land swap
almost two years ago now has
local hunters upset over its
management.
The state's Forestry Service
gave Tate's Hell National Forest
a parcel of land known to
locals as Juniper Jam. The
land was part of a larger state
organized land swap aimed at
evening up property lines.
David Morse, manger
of Tate's Hell, who was not
involved in the land swap
arrangement, said he has
recently had some local hunt-
ers call to complain about how
the new tract is being man-


aged.
Juniper Jam is located
near the boundary of the
Apalachicola National Forest
Service and is almost central
to the interior of Tate's Hell
State Forest. The tract is
approximately 2,250 acres or
almost 1 percent of the total
acreage of Tate's Hell.
A one-lane bridge over the
river and a. rough eight-mile
road that encircles the tract
are at the center of hunters'
complaints.
"The road is not well-
maintained and is very near
impassable," said Morse. "In
rainy conditions it is impass-
able with big mud holes every-
where."


It is the condition of
the road and the fact that it
restricts access to the Juniper
Tract that has many hunters in
the area upset. "Hunters have
a long association with Tate's
Hell," said Morse. "We are not
trying to stop them from hunt-
ing on the property."
Morse went on to say there
ate two reasons the roads are
not maintained. "We have a
limited budget and can't afford
to maintain all of the roads in
the forest," he said. "It is also
in the best interest of the for-
est to have certain areas that
are considered remote."
The road through Juniper
Jam now has a gate and any-
one who wants to access it


must do so by walking or
riding a bicycle. This makes
it difficult for a hunter who
might kill a deer a few miles.
back in the woods as they'
would have to carry it out on
foot.
Morse says hunters and
fishermen who have called
have been very polite but con-.
cerned the road is now blocked
to keep them out after being
open for the past two years.
"There is plenty of access,
better access, to the river in
other places," said Morse.
"Our fiscal year ends in June
and after that we will be able
to assess our ability to main-
tain the road next year."


Marilyn Blackwell addresses the informational meeting on the
restoration project of Battle Bend slough.

Conference in April,
Floridians (and everybody
else) should be prepared
to fend for themselves for
up to two weeks after a
major disaster (category 3
or higher), without state or
federal assistance.
This means major
preparation and stockpiling
of supplies for individuals,
complete with ample food,
water, medicines, first-
aid supplies, pet supplies,
camping equipment,
propane, gasoline and baby
supplies.
And the call for
preparation is not just for
individuals, as government
agencies are trying to get
businesses and facilities
to recognize. Hurricane
Katrina taught everyone
a very hard-earned, but

other health care facilities
having workable evacuation
plans and supplies in

Alan Levine, Secretary
of the Agency for- Health
Care Administration
(AHCA), is encouraging
medical providers in every
county to ensure that
hospitals, nursing homes,
and assisted living facilities
are organized and ready for
evacuation or sheltering in
place, and that plans are in
place to maintain the safety
of their patients.
Levine is encouraging
all health care providers
to review their emergency
management plans,; made
contact with vendors,
identify additional
evacuation locations, test
emergency generators,
and that fuel levels are
-at capacity. He also


encourages all health,;
care facilities to use the',
Hurricane Preparedness-,
Sales Tax Holiday to make, I
certain they have sufficient
emergency supplies..
including generators, -
drinking water, and non-.
perishable food.
"I cannot stress-
enough the importance of-
getting plans in place and .,
preparing for every possible ".
scenario," added Levine .-
"AHCA stands ready to'.-
assist our facilities in this
endeavor and throughout*
the hurricane season."
The state Agency for i

Think about it: if

use if, when you return,
they are under water or
blown to the four winds.
So, what do you do? How
do you keep emergency
supplies readily available,
yet in a safe location?
There are several
options:
Carry most or all of
your supplies with
you in your car,
recreational vehicle
or camper when you
evacuate.
This is the best method,
since you have everything
you need right with you.
You may have to leave some
of your possessions behind
in order to carry all the
supplies, but which would
you rather have in the face
of a disaster?
Keep supplies stored
at a relative or friend's
home far away from
the probable flood
zone and hurricane
wind zone.
Rent a storage unit in
an area far away from
the probable flood
zone and hurricane
wind zone.
In both these cases,
you need to pick a high,
dry location away from any
rivers and streams, at least
100 miles away from the
coast. Remember, Katrina,
Rita and Wilma cause wind

It's too Late To Turn
Back Now
When an evacuation
is ordered is not the time
to start trying to gather
precious mementos
and supplies. Do it
beforehand.
One good way to
stockpile needed supplies in
advance 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
years.
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.
Remember, as Gulf coast
residents and Floridians
have learned over the last


two years, preparation is the
key. It means the difference
between salvaging a home
and losing everything,
between untold suffering


and life and death. Laying
in supplies seems little
enough work in place of
utter disaster.

New Survey:


Coastal Residents Still Unprepared


as New Hurricane Season Approaches


Emergency Officials
Launch Educational Initiative
to Arm Hurricane- Vulnerable
Residents with Life-Saving
Information
Despite the past two his-
toric and devastating hurri-
cane seasons, a new regional
survey reveals a dangerously
high percentage of residents
in hurricane-vulnerable states
still aren't prepared, don't take
the threat of hurricanes seri-
ously, and have big gaps in
what they know about hur-
ricanes even those who live
within 30 miles of the coast.
Among the key findings
that concerned emergency
managers:
Of those surveyed:
56% don't feel vulner-
able to a hurricane or related
tornado or flooding,
60% have no family
disaster plan,
68% have no hurricane
survival kit,
83% have taken no steps
to make their homes stronger,
nid 13% said they
might not or would not evacu-
ate even if ordered to leave
-- leaving tens of thousands of
residents at grave risk.
"Katrina was quite a
national wake-up call, yet it
seems too many residents
are still asleep," said Max
Mayfield, National Hurricane
Center Director. "We're facing
another active and potentially
deadly season in just a few
weeks. .Jft's vital that residents
of hurricane-vulnerable states
take the threat seriously and
get prepared."
That's why Mayfield
and partners, the National
Emergency Management
Association, the Salvation
Army and the State Emergency
Response Team (SERT) of
Florida., today announced
the launch of the National
Hurricane Survival Initiative.
The uu native, funded by title
sponsor, Plylox, with addi-
tional support from Progress


Energy,
Travelers insurance and
BellSouth, aims to educate
residents in hurricane-vulner-
able states about the risks and
steps they can take to protect
themselves.
In addition to an informa-
tive Web site, www.hurricane-
safety.org, residents can tune
into two educational television
programs -
"Hurricane 20061" and
"The National Hurricane
Survival Test" which will be
broadcast in more than 40
markets on network affiliate
and cable stations.
Overall, Florida residents,
who have weathered the most
storms by far, and residents
of Southern states were more
prepared and knew more
about hurricanes than those
in more northern states. But
coastal residents, who live
within 30 miles of the coast,
were no more prepared nor
did they fare better on a quiz
of hurricane facts than those
who live further inland.
"We are -beginning to
make progress in creating
a culture of preparedness
among Florida residents,"
said Florida Lt. Gov. Toni
Jennings. "But, as the last
hurricane season taught us,
hurricanes are unpredictable,
and no one is immune. The
next target could be Texas,
Alabama, North Carolina or
even New York. All these resi-
dents need to be informed
and ready."
One alarming regional sur-
vey finding was how long many
residents would wait before
evacuating and how far they
would go, factors that increase
the chances of evacuees getting
stuck in gridlock and caught
on the road a most danger-
ous place to ride out a storm.
One in five said they would
leave only 12 to 24 hours
before a storm makes landfall,
and one in three said they
would drive as far as possible,


trying to outrun the storm. In
fact, emergency managers say
residents should only go as
far as necessary to find a safe
shelter outside the evacuation
zone.
"We need residents to know
they can't outsmart, outguess
or outrun a hurricane," said
Craig Fugate, Director of the
Florida Division of Emergency
Management. "Hurricane fore-
casts give us a warning, but
these storms' direction and
intensity are subject to change
dramatically. People can't wait
until a storm is bearing down
to prepare and have a plan."
One reason for the late
departure may be residents'
desire to protect their homes:
One in four residents said they
would not begin to prepare
their home until a hurricane
strike was within 24 hours,
leaving little time to evacu-
ate. Of those who said they
might or would not evacuate
even if ordered, one in three
cited "protecting their prop-
erty" as the reason for staying.
Ironically though, 83% said
they had taken no steps to
strengthen their homes since
the last hurricane season.
"All it takes is for one
window to break. Then the
storm is in your house, your
roof goes off and the water
and wind roll in," said Rob
Fee, president of Plylox. "It's
paramount to protect your
home and to board up 'those
windows, secure your garage
doors, make sure you pick
up all your lawn furniture,
put your barbecue grill in the
garage -- just take care of your
property."
Of the 13% of residents
who said they are responsi-
ble for an elderly or disabled
person, one in three had no
disaster plan for them if a hur-
ricane threatened.
The deadly threat of storm
surge was one of the most seri-
ous knowledge gaps revealed
by the survey: 68% did not


know storm surge represents
the greatest potential for loss
of life from a hurricane even
after witnessing the destructive
force of storm surge during *
Hurricane Katrina.
Experts say storm surge can
account for deaths well inland
yet 13% of coastal residents
said they would not or might
not evacuate even if ordered
to do so.
The survey also revealed
as many as a third of residents
may not be adequately insured.
One in three of those surveyed
said it's been three years or
longer since they reviewed
their insurance coverage and
an equal number said they
didn't have or weren't sure if
they had replacement cover-
age. Given the huge growth in
property values in many areas,
these residents may not have
adequate coverage to rebuild
if they suffered catastrophic
losses.
In addition, more than
half of those surveyed thought
their insurance policies cov-
ered flood damage or weren't
sure. In fact, homeowners
only have flood protection if
they have purchased federal
flood insurance.
"As important as it is for
homeowners to minimize loss-
es where possible, it's inevi-
table that these storms will
inflict damage, sometimes
in a catastrophic way," said
Ray Stone, vice president of
catastrophe operations for
Travelers. "The critical ques-
tion to ask is, 'Could I afford
to rebuild if I suffered a cata-
strophic loss?'
Now is the time to find out
if you have the right insurance
coverage, not when a storm is
blowing in."
Emergency officials say
preparation is the key, not
only to avoiding damage and
loss of life, but to recovery
after a storm. Yet, the survey
highlighted several significant
barriers to a smooth pdst-


hurricane recovery:
*More than one in four
surveyed said it's government's
responsibility to provide water,
food, medicine and shelter
in the first few days after a
hurricane or weren't sure
who should be responsible.
Actually, officials say every
resident should have a three-
day supply of food, water and
medicines.
*Nearly half said they
would not wait for officials to
declare it safe to return, but
would return to a hurricane-
struck area as soon as the
storm passed.
*Nearly half said their
employers likely would not
know where they were going
or how to reach them after
a storm. Yet officials say
recovery depends on busi-
nesses having a plan to get
back into operation quickly
after a storm, which requires
knowing how to reach their
workforce.
"Hurricane preparedness
and recovery is a true partner-
ship of individuals and fami-
lies, government, businesses
and relief organizations," said
Major Steve Hedgren, a divi-
sional commander for the
Salvation Army. "If individuals
think government can do it all
- right down to providing their
basic food, water and medi-
cine in the first few days after
a storm they're dead wrong,
and we need to change that
thinking."
On a quiz of vital hurri-
cane facts, most of those sur-
veyed failed the basics:
*94% didn't know that
garage doors are the struc-
tural component most likely
to fail during a hurricane. Yet,
garage doors can be easily
strengthened at modest cost
with a reinforcement kit.
*70% wrongly -thought
most tornadoes occur within
three miles of the eye- of
the storm. In fact, torna-
does associated with land- fall-


ing hurricanes are spawned
in rain bands that can occur
hundreds of miles from the
eye of the storm. That's a
dangerous knowledge gap
because it means residents
may not recognize the signifi-
cant inland risk associated
with hurricanes.
*81% did not know that
storm intensity is the least
reliable forecasting projection.
That's significant because it
means residents may not real-
ize that a Category 1 or 2
storm could be a Category 4
or 5 at landfall.
*50% still thought mask-
ing tape would help keep win-
dows from shattering. In fact,
masking tape offers no protec-
tive value at all.
*67% thought candles or
kerosene lamps are suggested
items to use in the event of a
power failure. In fact, emer-
gency experts warn that they
are significant safety hazards.
"Investor-owned utilities
throughout Florida and the
nation know that restoring
electrical service to custom-
ers is essential to getting life
back to normal after a natural
disaster. Our storm-response
plans are constantly updated
and tested to ensure that we
are ready for whatever Mother
Nature brings our way," said
C.J. Drake, spokesperson for
Progress Energy. "We also
work cooperatively with state
and local officials and first
responders to ensure a coor-
dinated approach to address-
ing restoration efforts. We will
mobilize whatever resources
are needed to assist our cus-
tomers and each other to get
the lights back on as soon and
as safely as possible." ,
The survey was conduct-
ed by Mason-Dixon Polling &
Research of 1,100 adults in
Atlantic and Gulf Coast states
between April 26 and May 2. It
has a margin for error of plus
or minus 3S. *

Beekeepe
daddy."
Lanier was born in 1923
in the 100-year old house on
Lake Grove Road where Ben
and his wife, Glynnis, operate
the family honey business.
He was conceived, he
suspects, on the Apalachicola
River, where his parents tend-
ed bees from an old shack
along the riverbank.
"They were supposed to
be working bees, but they
were listening to the birds,
and that's where I happened,"
said Lanier.
When he was two weeks
old, his parents carried him
down the river in an empty
beehive, which his mother
padded with pillows, to sur-
vey the wreckage of a sunken
steamboat.
At age five, Lanier as-
sumed command of the fam-
ily boat, steering it from the
river camp to Douglas Land-
ing, where he was retrieved by
a bus and taken to school.
Occasionally he'd surprise
his "city slicker" Wewahitchka
friends with squirrels he killed
at daylight.
When he was not hunting
or exploring the river, Lanier
kept his eyes on the bees.
Boyhood Memories
Lanier's mother, Kate,.
was a well-mannered woman
who extolled the virtues of
righteous living.
So imagine her surprise
when she heard a steady
stream of cuss words issue
from the mouth of her four-
year-old son.
Young Lanier had been
standing on the back porch
near an old water pump
which served as a summer
time gathering place for bees
that refreshed themselves by
sipping the cool .drops of wa-
ter.
A bee stung Lanier and
he retaliated, with coarse
words and a weapon of mass
destruction.


r
"I had a hammer and I
killed every bee I could find,"
recalled Lanier.
Bees and honey are pres-
ent in most of Lanier's child-
hood memories.
He remembers his mother
walking along the riverbank
for exercise and the trail of
bees that followed her black
panty hose "They'd eat her
up; she'd have to go to the
house."
He remembers his mother
feeding him a biscuit smeared
with tupelo honey when his
blood sugar dropped, and his
father giving jars of tupelo
honey as Christmas pres-
ents.
Lanier was embarrassed
by his father's simple gifts,
but now feels differently.
"I didn't realize that was
one of ,the best things he
could give. Honey was cheap
back then, but it wasn't to
other people who didn't have
it," said Lanier, who now gives
jars of honey as condolence
offerings.
From his father, Lanier
learned about the diseases
that infect bees and when to
set fire to the hives.
He learned the timing of
the two-week tupelo bloom,
and when to empty the combs
to ensure the purity of the tu-
pelo crop.
Lanier's ,beloved brother
Edgar, who drowned while
fishing near Bloody Bluff,
taught him about the ways
of the world, and how to haul
bees and extract honey.
His fellow Wewahitchka
beekeepers taught other valu-
able lessons.
"I don't know all there is
to know about bees, but I had
a lot of good teachers," said
Lanier.
Leaving Home
Lanier helped his father
with the family business until
he left home at age 17.
"Daddy had the bee busi-


re- elA-, A

ness and it wasn't enough for
both of us; one of us had to
leave, and I knew he wasn't
going to," said Lanier.
His first job was selling
Coca-Cola at a Dothan plant,
where he earned $12 a week.
The meager salary was
not enough to keep Lanier fed
and his uniform clean, so he
returned to his father's apiary
two weeks later.
An assortment of odd
jobs followed managing a.
Wewahitchka pool hall, sur-
veying the river for Standard
Oil and running a Georgia
clothing store, where he ped-
dled one-of-a- kind dresses to
the discerning upper crust.
After a failed first mar-
riage to a "blue-blooded Yan-
kee," Lanier ended up in Or-
lando, where he managed to
stave off the advances of a
nefarious Mafioso.
The Mafioso asked him
to be the drop-off man for a
suitcase with mysterious con-
tents.
Knowing better than to
get tangled up with organized
crime, Lanier declined, then

devised a quick plan to get
out of Dodge.
What happened next is
a favorite story in the Lanier
catalogue.
"That guy that walked up
to me and wanted me to tote
that bag, three days later,
they found him right in front
of Disney World. He had six
bullet holes in him," reported
Lanier.
After the near-miss in
Orlando, Lanier returned' to
Wewahitchka and was struck
by a vision riding in a '51
Chevrolet.
"You fellows know who
that is?" 'Lanier asked his
companions. "I've gotta meet
that gal."
One of Lanier's two
sweethearts facilitated an in-

'The Nearest Thing to Perfect'


The more L.L. Lanier observes his bees, the more he admires them.
He finds inspiration in their industry, ingenuity and diligent service to the hive. He believes
bees are a great society, more advanced than the human race can ever aspire to become.
"Bees are the nearest thing to perfect I've ever known," says Lanier "They're not perfect,
but they're near it."
Lanier can talk for hours on the complexities of the beehive. He sprinkles his lessons with
colorful analogies likening the queen bee to Queen Victoria and the German bee to the "aggres-
sive" race from which they're named.
Some of his stories are known facts, others are theories Lanier has formulated over decades
in the tupelo business.
All provide insight into the magic of honey making.

Germans vs. Italians
All bees in the U.S. came from Europe. I don't know who brought the first bees over, but
they've been here for eons.
You've got the German bees and the Italian bees, and they're true to their nature, more or
less like the race from which they're named.
The Germans are more aggressive than the Italians: they bring in more honey in the same
length of time.
The Italians are kind of easy, more laid back.

Busy Bees
Bees have two stomachs. He loads up both tanks, one for his own survival, one to take
home.
He comes back straight; he doesn't go around.
He says, 'Boys, I've found it.' He gives them a dance, and they know exactly where to go.
They don't have to waste all that time.
The nectar they gather today, they'll spend their night fanning their wings, drying it out,
condensing it down.
They never cease, they work all the time.

Cooling Down the Hive
The bees have the first air condition. Certain bees station themselves in the beehive-where
they're pulling hot air out, and others are pulling fresh air in, making a cycle like an air condi-
tion.
In between, they've dropped the temperature down to 65 degrees.

The Queen Bee
The queen is kind of like Queen Victoria, just a slave for breeding purposes. She can lay,her
own weight in eggs in one day.
A bee's sex is determined by the shape of the cell in the honeycomb. If the queen lays an
egg in this bigger cell, it will be a drone, if she lays it in this smaller one, it will be a neuter the
worker bee the one that stings you.
When the queen gets killed, the bees start dancing all around. They say, 'Mama's dead, boys,
we've got to do something.'
They take one of those eggs that would've been a drone and they turn it into a female with
royal jelly, which is a combination of honey and pollen, and what else, we don't know. That
makes it turn into a female.
When the queen dies, the other bees (from other hives) do what we call robbing, they come
and steal their honey and carry it back to their hives.
The home bee will fight the invaders to a certain point.
When he sees he's whipped, he starts toting his wares out to the other fella's house.
A bee's welcome in any house as long as he's loaded with honey.

The Healing Power of Honey

For Lanier, tupelo honey is nothing less than magic in a
bottle.
He credits tupelo with being nature's most powerful cure
for all manner of ailments, from burns to rattlesnake
bites.


"Honey kills all germs. No germs can
live in it: it suffocates them," said Lanier, ,'
who believes that doctors are reluctant /
.o acknowledge honey's medicinal ben-
efits.


"It Would upset the modus ope-
-ardi of the hospitals. They've got
so much invested to throw out what
they'vee got." said Lanmer.
He advises burn victims to
eschew the hospital in favor of a Fc
ong soak in tupelo.
"If you're burned on half your .
oodv, if you lay in honey it will soften A
"t, and the skin will peel off and it ,....
won t leave scars," he said. ,.
For years, Lanier has rubbed "" ,
honey in his eye before bedtime as a
moisturizer.
When night falls, his Spitz, Dolly, waits \
at his feet to lick the honey off his finger.
"That dog likes that honey. She expects it .
every night," said Lanier.
Lanier has never had vision problems, with the exception
of astigmatism, which he terms the inevitable consequence
of old age.
He once told his eye doctor about his nightly honey swab,
and the doctor did not discourage him from continuing the
ritual.
"I can't say it's done any harm," the doctor said.

his second wife, Martha, on
a Saturday afternoon in Bea-

He questioned his bee-
keeping legacy.
"I was bemoaning the
fact one time that I hadn't
amounted to nothing, that I
hadn't done anything great,"
said Lanier.
"And one of my buddies
said, 'L.L. you've fed a lot of
people, made that good tupe-
lo honey,' and that made me
feel good."
"The Biggest Gamble
in the World"



To Bee or Not to Bee?

The Philosophy of
L.L. Lanier

"Beekeeping is the
oldest profession, before
prostitution or 'money
lending. The survival of the
race was on that honey."






"Communism sounds
good when you get down to
the nitty gritty. Everybody'd
carry their load and it'd
work perfect. And the bees
do, they carry the whole
load with each other. But
with man, it breaks down."






"Did I tell you Solomon
was a beekeeper? Solomon
was reputedly a smart man,
but to me, he wasn't very
smart. A man that has a
thousand women, he ain't
very smart."


quiet better nalf, and
the model of southern hos-
pitality.
Lanier c:aJls her the "best
in the world."
Martha played a pivotal
role in L.L. Lanier and Son's
success in the 1950s.
Tired of watching whole-
salers reap the profits of
his backbreaking labor, La-
nier emerged from the river
swamp with a money making
scheme.
"Honey, I've got an idea,"
he told Martha. "We're going
into the bottling business."
Using Martha's school
teacher salary as capital,
Lanier began bottling his
honey, and placed the com-
pany's first advertisement in
Prevention magazine.
"$3 for two pounds of
world famous" tupelo honey.
Post paid, Wewahitchka," the
advertisement read.
The demand for Lanier's
tupelo honey grew as more
people sampled its distinc-
tive, delicate flavor.
"Our biggest asset is
word-of mouth, it's helped
us out all through the ages,"
noted Lanier.
Lanier took great joy in
being a beekeeper, but at
times he found himself dis-
couraged.
An avid reader, he knew
the historic contributions
of the great empires, Egypt,
Greece and Rome.

For decades, Lanier kept
a journal detailing his fami-
ly's day-to-day tupelo opera-
tions, and his journal writing
continued after heart trouble
forced him to retire in 1991.
Entries'from the last de-
cade, scrawled in an Alabama
Electric Co-Op Day planner,
detail the minutiae of retired
life, as well as his son's bee-
keeping milestones.
An entry from May 9,
2003 reads: "Washed the
car. Got my hair cut. Ben
still getting honey."
Lanier is pleased to re-
port a banner year for tupelo
production, the result of nat-
ural forces falling into perfect
alignment. ....
Timing is an essenual
factor in tupelo production.
The bees produce mixed,
or bakery-grade honey from
trees that bloom prior to the
tupelo. The mixed honey is
darker in color, and granu-
lates, unlike the golden tu-
pelo.
This year, the dry cli-
mate caused the maple, the
titi and the black, gum to
bloom early, leaving a two-
week window where the tu-
pelo blossom predominated.
Every season has its
challenges, but Lanier cites
only one "complete failure"
in his family's long beekeep-
ing history.
The year was 1933, and
Lanier was 10 years old..
"It was the year of the
Great Depression and it

seemed like nature was back-
wards," remembered Lanier.
Honey fermented in the
.blossom; turkeys, squirrels
and rabbits got sick and
died; the river dropped and
fish cut off at the mouth of
the slough perished by the
tons.
To keep the Wewahitchka
beekeepers from going out of
business, the government
bought the worthless honey
crop.
"All the men werein the
same situation the Whit-
fields, the Rishs, the Laniers
all of us were in the same
,predicament," noted Lanier.
"It was a sad time, but
everything in the world went
w.VTong."
Tupelo production, notes
Lanier, has never been. for
the faint of heart.,
"It's the biggest gamble
in the world. You're gam-
bling all your year's proceeds
on two weeks on one little
old blossom and one insect,"
.he said.
"Nothing in this World
but People"
"Don't ever get on these
cigarettes," Lanier warns be-
fore taking a long, satisfying
drag.
"My wife gets mean, my
dog gets mean, I smoke one
damn cigarette and they all
sweeten up," he says and
laughs.
His faithful Spitz, Dolly,
rests at his feet, while her
twin, Buddy, ushered inside
by Martha, yelps his desire
to be free.
"He's a con artist," quips
Lanier. "He learned it from
me."
Lanier has spent the af-
ternoon doing what he does
best holding court, and he
is in a playful mood.
Countless visitors have
made the pilgrimage to La-
nier's home to hear him re-
count his adventures both
in beekeeping and life. "
He is happiest when he's
engaged in conversation,
and he has never once met a
stranger.
"I like to share. That's
what life is all about, shar-
ing your life with somebody,
your experiences. Every-
body's got a different history,
and it's just as important to
them as yours is to you," La-
nier says.
"There is nothing more
important in this world than
people. Nothing else matters.
But people don't have time
for each other no more."
A memory flickers before
his eyes and ends his medi-
tation.
"Another story I'd like to
tell you..."

Red Hat Chit Chat

The lampshade hat fashion show held by the "You've Got
Mail Bags" Chapter of the Red Hat Society at VFW Post 10069
in April was not expected by the noon crowd. However, the
ladies' paraded their unique cranial creations through the bar
*to the bafflement & amusement of unsuspecting patrons.
Even though no outright applause was received, the
Jhoots, laughter & whistles almost drowned out the kazoo
Rendition of "In Your Easter Bonnet" & let the ladies know
.their creative efforts were not in vain.
Joyce Branson of Overstreet chose a "shady lady" (pun
'intended) theme, Kathy Wolfe of Mexico Beach, tried to hide
.her charms under a basket of shells, Connie Sedam used
lots of bling, Ursula Reynolds of Saint Joe Beach went the
pretty route with a bower of flowers, Barbara Brown created
-a traditional bonnet and Doris Tempest did an Easter basket
:complete with pink marshmallow bunnies. Elouise Branson
'brought a little froggy to the party and Queen Michele, The
Queen Bag, sported a spot of tea.
Everyone enjoyed a take out lunch from Provisions
catering in downtown Port Saint Joe. Yummy!
On May 24 at noon ET, this goofy group will gather at the
Queen Bag's house to celebrate their first anniversary and
go back to kindergarten. Fingerpainting will be the activity
of the day and the ladies will each bring a covered dish to
share.
If you're a woman over 50 who wants to join in the fun,
email Queen Michele at thequeenbag(5anetscape.net.

VFW Donates to Florida Exhibit at Mexico Beach Gallery


Sheriff's Youth Ranches


', -4.,


r -'. t- :' .. "'


Veterans of Foreign Wars John C. Gainous Post 10069 of Port St
Joe presents a check for $500 to the Florida Sheriff's Youth Ranches.
Mr. Frank Kenny of the program accepts the donation from Post
Commander Wayne Taylor.


The Welcome Center
Gallery in Mexico Beach
is currently featuring an
exhibition of photographs
by Barbara Ginsberg, the
winner of the "Best of Show"
award in the 2005 Mexico
Beach Photography Contest.
"Reflective Moments" is
primarily a photographic
essay on the natural beauty
and life style of the Forgotten
Coast. Ginsberg's creative
imagination and keen eye for
the unusual gives her the
ability to produce an image
that expresses a timeless
moment. "Any ordinary
object or moment can become
a thing of beauty. I can see
beauty in a tree stump," she
says.
Barbara Ginsberg moved
to Mexico Beach six years ago
after a thirty-one year career
as a medical secretary at


Emory University in Atlanta.
Having enjoyed photography
for many years as a hobby,
she recently began a more
serious approach after
winning the top award in
last year's photo contest.
She also won "Best Photo"
for a Waterfront Living
Magazine contest and
has shot wedding pictures
and family portrait photos on
the beach. She serves on the
Executive Board of the Mexico
Beach Civic Association and
volunteers for Hospice and
the Martin Theatre.
The exhibit will be on
display through July 7 at
the Welcome Center which
is open on week days from
9 a.m. to 4 p.m. CT. For
additional information, call
the Mexico Beach Community
Development Council at 648-

U.S. Forest Service Buys Large Tract


for St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge


U.S. Forest Service Buys
Large Tract for St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge from
The Nature Conservancy
Sale ensures future pub-
lic access along the Florida
Trail, which meanders
from Gulf Island National
Seashore near Pensacola
to Big Cypress National
Preserve in south Florida.
The Nature Conservancy
sold a 278-acre addition
to the St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge today to the
U.S. Forest Service. The
Forest Service funded this
transaction because the acre-
age includes a section of the


Florida Trail.
The acreage is part
of a 2,636-acre parcel the
Conservancy purchased
in 2003 to save it from
potential development. The
Conservancy has been trans-
ferring ownership in stages
to federal partners as funds
become available.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service (USFWS) has bought
back 1,506 acres from the
Conservancy since 2003. The
USFWS has applied for fed-
eral funding from the Land
and Water Conservation
Fund and is awaiting further
allocations to
buy the remaining 852
acres the Conservancy still
owns.
"Our partnerships with
the Fish and Wildlife Service
and the Forest Service have
resulted in an essential addi-
tion to the St. Marks Wildlife
Refuge and have allowed
the Florida Trail to become
much more aesthetically
pleasing for all those using
this wonderful public recre-
ational amenity," said
Victoria Tschinkel,


Florida director of The
Nature Conservancy.
With the land in per-
manent federal ownership,
the Forest Service will be
able to protect the scenic
and cultural quality of the
route. "The purchase of
this property brings us one
step closer to realizing our
goal of establishing a per-
manently protected footpath
though Florida's most trea-
sured natural areas," said
Michelle Mitchell, Florida
trail manager for the U.S.
Forest Service.
Designated as a Florida
National Scenic Trail in
1983 by Congress, the
Florida Trail is developed
through the joint efforts of
the Florida Trail Association
and the U.S. Forest Service.
The entire trail is officially
designated as a component
of Florida's Statewide System
of Greenways and
Trails, and is considered
a major statewide connector
of protected lands and spe-
cial places.

Boyd Speaks Out Against Offshore Drilling

Amendment to If Cong : .- offshore drilling included in bill


Congressman Allen
boyd (D-North Florida)
today spoke out against an
amendment to the Interior
Appropriations bill for fis-
cal year 2007 that would
lift a 25-year Congressional
ban on natural gas produc-
tion along Florida's Outer
Continental Shelf (OCS).
Rep. John Peterson (R-PA)
offered the amendment in
the House Appropriations'
Committee mark-up, which
passed in Committee by a
vote of 37 to 25.
< "The Peterson amend-
ment directly contradicts the
widespread belief that drill-
ing off our coastlines would
|e devastating for the people
6f Florida and our nation,"
Boyd stated. "Offshore drill-
ing in the Gulf of Mexico,
huch as what this amend-
inent would allow, poses a'
risk to our nation's military
readiness by placing severe
restrictions on the ability of
ihe Air
1 Force and the Navy to
train in airspace and naval'
bones in the gulf."
When speaking out,
against the Peterson amend-
ment. Congressman Boyd
cited a letter from Secretary
of Defense Donald Rumsfeld,
which stated that "drill-

ated development would

Military Quality of Life hear-
ing in Washington, General
T. Michael Moseley, the Air
Force's chief of staff, backed
up Secretary Rumsfeld's
view, indicating that the test-
ing ranges in the Gulf of
Mexico are very important to

forces, and oil rigs in the gulf
could damage these ranges

mission.
Congressman Boyd is a
co-sponsor of the Permanent
Protection for Florida Act (HR
4783), legislation to perma-
nently shield Florida's coasts
from the hazards of offshore
and gas drilling. This legisla-
tion, sponsored by Senators
Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez
in the Senate, includes a list
of coastal protections that
Floridians have long fought
for, such as making the cur-
rent moratorium against off-
shore drilling leases perma-
nent and canceling
all existing drilling leases


in Florida.
"Our beaches and coast-
lines are special and irre-
placeable, and it is our
responsibility to protect
them," Boyd stated. "Drilling
off our coasts would have
damaging consequences for
our beaches, our marine
life and its habitat, and our
national security efforts.
The people of Florida are
steadfast in their desire to
maintain the offshore drill-
ing moratorium, and I will
continue to work in Congress,
to keep this ban in place."

Sin: A Losing Game
Sin is rampant, it's running wild,
Even some who are called God's child.
Christians, don't worry about what people say,
Trying to entice you to live their way.
Misery loves company, I've heard it said,
Now, they have to sleep in that sinful bed.
The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah should warn
homosexuals today,
The life they live, is contrary to God, no matter what they
say.
I've heard Christians make cracks, because I don't drink,
But I found out long ago, it makes your witness stink.
Satan dresses up sin, to make it look real fine,
Like the foam on a beer or the color of wine.
I've been there before, I'll not return again,
Because Jesus is my Savior, my Lord and my friend.
Homosexuals live it up, drinkers guzzle your booze,
The wages of sin is death my friend, without Jesus you're
going to lose.
Billy Johnson

Carter Graduates from FAMU


: Lindsey Leigh Carter,
,the daughter of Roy Lee and
Veronica Carter, graduat-
ed on April 30, 2006 from
Florida A&M University with a
'8fiacelors of Science degree in
chliemistry/molecular biology.
.While matriculating through
Scoliege, Lindsey maintained
-an extremely active schedule
with extra-curricular activi-
ties-, research opportunities,
'and earned her certification in
'phlebotomy. She ends her col-
Slege career with sum cum laude
honors, holding a 3.78/4.00
grade point average. In addi-
tion, she has held several lead-
ership positions on campus,
Such as the publicity chair-
man, for the 2004 Relay For
Life, musician for the FAMU
Gospel Choir, and secretary
of the Rattler Association of
Chemists, to name a few.
Lindsey has been afford-
:ed the opportunity to travel
Ato various scientific research
conferences and admitted into
^prestigious summer programs.
During the summer of 2004,
she attended the New York
University School of Medicine
iSummer Undergraduate
Research Program and stud-
,ied heart development in


zebrafish. With that research,
Lindsey won a national award
for her poster presentation
at the Annual Biomedical
Research Conference for
Minority Students (ABRCMS)
in Dallas, Texas. She also was
accepted into other summer
research programs at Stanford
University and Baylor College
of Medicine.
In the spring of 2004,
she pledged to the Beta Alpha
Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha
Sorority, Incorporated (AKA)
and immediately began ful-
filling her duties to lifelong
service. She has dedicated
her time to many communi-
ty service projects, such as
raising money for Hurricane
Katrina victims, tutoring, and
collecting books for the sol-
diers stationed overseas. She
also became the treasurer
of the National Pan-Hellenic
Council, the governing body
of the "Divine Nine" Greek-
lettered organizations, during
her junior year. She now cur-
rently serves as the vice-presi-
dent.
After graduation, Lindsey
plans to pursue a Ph.D.
degree in either biochemistry
or organic chemistry. "The


-w
opportunities with a Ph.D. are
limitless," states Carter. "It's a
degree that allows you to use
your creativity and knowledge
base to solve problems that
affect our communities. For
example, a friend of mine is
conducting her graduate work


on creating glucose sensors
for diabetics without having
to puncture the skin. I've also
met graduate students at con-
ferences that are working on
engineering blood vessels to
use in cardiac bypass surger-
ies. 'And with a Ph.D., I'm not
concerned about malpractice
lawsuits!"
When asked if she made
the right decision about which
college she attended, Lindsey
replied, "If I had to go back to
my senior year in high school
and choose all over again,
FAMU would have been the
only school that I applied to.
First of all, I would have saved
a lot of application money. But
seriously, I have met so many
extraordinary young people
that are driven to do awesome
things in life. Students that
have written books, invested


in real estate, and been elect-
ed to public office. And my
professors are dedicated to
making sure you succeed if
you show true interest in your
area of study. And they all
want to mentor you! These
past four years of my life have
contributed so much to my


personal growth and develop-
ment as not only a scientist,
but also a well-rounded indi-
vidual. Who knew I could find
that so close to home! I truly
love my school, and I would
recommend it time and time
again."


Happy

PUBLIC NOTICE

To: Anyone interested in affordable housing
From: David Richardson, Planner
Date: May 11,2006
Re: Affordable housing regulations

On April 19, 2006 at 1:00 pm, a workshop moder-
ated by Dannie Bolden was attended by bankers,
developers, builders, engineers, real estate and
etc. During the meeting the development com-
munitywas challenged to develop an affordable
housing plan that would be acceptable to both
the County and the development community. The
emphasis was the development community would
be better served if they drafted a plan instead of
the County.
Gulf County can not expect economic growth
when potential investors and existing employers
are not assured affordable housing will be avail-
able for their employees. Therefore, because this
is such a critical issue and the response from the
meeting being so positive, the BOCC at their May
9 meeting appointed an affordable housing steer-
ing committee consisting of Mr. David Taunton, Mr.
Alan Cox, Ms. Lawren Massey, Mr. John Hendry
and Mr. Greg Johnson pending acceptance. The
goal of the steering committee is to coordinate.
suggestions from the development community or
public and draft affordable housing recommenda-
tions for the BOCC to consider adopting into the
development regulations.
The BOCC also recognizes the difficulty of sched-
uling the necessary meetings and has directed the
Planning Department to facilitate the affordable
housing plan. Therefore, all proposals are to be
delivered to the Planning Department no later
than June 2, 2006 at 5:00 PM Eastern. The Plan-
ning Department will, then coordinate meeting
dates and time with the committee and give public
notice when the steering committee will meet to
review the proposals and begin drafting recom-
mendations.

Comments and questions can be directed to the
Planning Department at 1000 Cecil G. Costin Sr.
Blvd., Room 301.

high school students will be on
the road south to Belle Glade,
Florida (near the Everglades)
on a mission trip to help the
needy. This is a six day mis-
sion trip, one which includes

dren in an after-school pro-
gram and provide food for
300-400 people who live in
substandard conditions. They
will tour Arab, Hispanic,
Jamaican, Haitian, American
black and white communities
all within a few blocks of each
other. There are also plans to
visit the Big Cypress Seminole
Indian Reservation deep in
the Everglades, and ride on a
swamp buggy or airboat over
the sawgrasses of the "big
river" the Everglades.
The Students will also

BE READY FOR
ANYTHING!

Whether you are buying or
selling a home, you will prob-
ably encounter "the inspec-
tion." This needn't strike fear
into the hearts of sellers, and
it needn't encourage buyers to
look for fault "

Disclosure and awareness are
the most important issues, and
a recent survey of the National
Association of Home Inspec-
tors sheds some light on the
most prevalent problems that
they encounter. Sellers will
want to address any problems
before listing their home, and
buyers will want to be sure to
pay special attention to the fol-
lowing survey results.

One of the four most common
major problems is improper
drainage around the house.
Unsuitable grading can lead

May 25, 2006


City Hall


to %water penetration and even
problems %\th the foundation.
Another of the four biggest
problems minolves big sur-
pnse roofing. Look for dam-
age in the form of worn materi-
als or improper flashing.

The survey results also point to
a couple of interior problems.
In older homes, particular at-
tention should be paid to the
electrical system, which might
have inadequate overload pro-
tection or "suspicious" wiring,
if not insufficient power. Also
inspect the heating and air
conditioning systems, espe-
cially if managed with an older
thermostat or other controls.

Keep in mind that most homes
will not have major problems,
but that'these are the most
common. Trust your agent
Sto prepare you for anything,
whether selling or buying.

How To Be A Smarter Health Care Consumer A-
d"- i ... .. ,_ .... ... First Conference On Women's Health-


Get the rnostpqromyour health care U(JtLUI


From Blue Cross/Blue Shield
of Florida
When shopping for a new
car or making investment
decisions, most people spend
significant amounts of time
planning and researching their
choices. However, many con-
sumers aren't nearly as savvy
when it comes to making
health care decisions.
Double-digit percent-
age increases in health care
spending are causing some
consumers to rethink their
involvement in making health
care decisions. Many who once
took a passive approach to
their health care benefits are
now taking an active role and
are becoming more knowl-
edgeable about their health
care choices.
"Becoming a smarter
health care consumer bene-
fits everyone," said Dr. Melvyn
Fletcher, vice-president, pro-
fessional programs, Blue Cross
and Blue Shield of Florida.
"When consumers know what
is available to them, and can
make more informed decisions
of the services and capabilities
offered, it not only assists in
keeping their individual costs
down, but also helps keep
overall health care costs from
rising."
There are many ways you
can become a better-informed
health care consumer, from
simply asking questions of
your physician to patronizing
facilities that are in your plan's
network. "Many consumers
are reluctant to ask their phy-
sicians questions about tests
and treatments," said Fletcher.
"But it's important to under-


stand your options and the
financial implications associ-
ated with each one so you can
make an informed decision."
Some plans offer a choice
of hospitals as well, and it may
also pay to research what dif-
ferent providers charge for var-
ious services and treatments.
Requesting generic alterna-
tives to name brand drugs can
also save consumers on their
out-of-pocket expenses.
In addition, consumers
should make an effort to stay
healthy by taking advantage
of preventive care treatments,
such as flu shots, mammo-
grams and wellness programs.
Many health care plans offer
discounted wellness programs
which provides reduced prices
on gym memberships, mas-
sage therapy, workout videos
bicycle helmets and other
products and services.
Some consumers may
want to explore the benefits
of flexible spending accounts,
which allow them to set aside
pre-tax funds to cover routine
health care costs. Many flex-
ible spending accounts now
cover over-the-counter medica-
tions, such as cold and cough
medication.
"Education is the key,"
said Fletcher. "By increasing
their awareness of the options
available to them, consumers
have the opportunity to make
decisions that best suit their
individual needs. In doing
so, they not only benefit them-
selves, they help to control
overall health care costs."
For more tips on being a
smart health care consumer,

The Florida Department
of Health (DOH) joins county
health departments, health care
practitioners, Healthy Start
Coalitions and citizens across
the state in celebrating National
Women's Health Week, May
14-20. DOH also recognizes
National Women's Check-Up Day
on Monday, May 15 to promote
preventive health care as part of
a healthy lifestyle.
"National Women's Health
Week is the perfect time to
establish life-long healthy hab-
its," said DOH Deputy Secretary
for Health and Florida Women's
Health Officer Nancy Humbert,

A.R.N.P, M.S.N. "I advise
Florida's women to reconnect
to their health during Women's
Health Week. The Department
encourages all women to proac-
tively maintain their health by
consistently scheduling check-
ups with their primary health
care provider, in addition to
adding a physical activity, such
as walking, to their daily rou-
tines."
National Women's Health
Week promotes awareness about
key health issues women share
and highlights convenient steps
to maintain health and well-
being. This week also reminds
women of the importance of
incorporating simple preventa-
tive health behaviors into every
day routines. This campaign
is nationally coordinated by
the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services' Office on
Women's Health. DOH's Office
of Women's Health promotes the
week throughout Florida.
Since prevention is the
number one way to avoid com-
mon health problems, National
Women's Check-Up Day encour-
ages women to visit health care
professionals to receive pre-
ventive exams and screenings,
including check-ups for heart
disease, diabetes, cancer and
sexually transmitted diseases
(STDs). Maintaining a regular
check-up schedule is one of the
five healthy habits that can con-
tribute to enhancing a women's


health. Other measures include
routine exercise, a healthy diet,
not smoking and following gen-
eral safety rules.
To celebrate Women's
Health, DOH will host the first
Governor's Conference on
Women's Health in Orlando on
May 18-19, 2006. This two-day
conference has been designed
to provide relative information
on the health issues affecting
Florida's women and to ascer-
tain information from women's
health stakeholders both of
which are vital to the develop-
ment of a statewide plan on
women's health. Learn more
at the Conference Web site at
http://www.cme.hsc.usf.edu/
womenshealth/.
In addition, DOH will offer
exercise and learn classes for
employees of the Capital Circle
Office Complex. Participants
will learn more about physi-
cal activity and stress manage-
ment during the exercise and
yoga classes offered from 11:30
a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Monday
through Thursday of Women's
Health Week.
The U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services is
also sponsoring an eight-week
physical activity initiative -
WOMAN (Women and girls On
the Move Across the Nation)
Challenge to begin on Mother's
Day, May 14 and ends July 8,
2006. DOH has offered this
challenge to female employees
as a worksite wellness initiative.
To learn more about WOMAN
Challenge and National Women's
Health Week view http://www.
womenshealth.gov/whw/.
To participate in National
Women's Check-Up Day women
should contact their health care
providers or one of the partici-
pating health care providers, to
schedule check-ups and screen-
ing services. For more informa-
tion on women's health visit the
Department of Health Web site
at www.doh.state.fl.us or contact
your county health department
to learn of local efforts.

The Florida Department
of Health (DOH) reminds all
Floridians that although skin
cancer is the most common of
all cancers, it is also one of the
most preventable cancers. For
the 12th year, the American
Academy of Dermatology
(AAD) designated Monday,
May 1, 2006 as "National Skin
Self-Examination Day" and
Melanoma Monday to raise
awareness about melanoma
and encourage Americans to
begin a lifelong habit of regu-
lar skin self-examinations and
protection of their skin.
"The number of those
who suffer from skin cancer
is rising in Florida as well as
in the nation everyday," said
DOH Deputy Health Officer
Bonita Sorensen, M.D., M.B.A.
'According to the 2004 DOH
Annual Report, there were a
total of 626 'melanoma and
179 other skin cancer-relat-
ed deaths in Florida. The
Department recommends less
direct contact with the sun's
UV Rays."
According to the American
Cancer Society (ACS), most
of the more than one mil-
lion cases of non-melanoma
skin cancer diagnosed yearly
in the United States are con-
sidered to be sun-related. The
ACS estimates there will be
4,870 new melanoma cases
in Florida and 62,190 in the
United States; melanoma is the
most serious type of skin can-
cer. The American Melanoma
Foundation's Web site, www.
melanomafoundation.org,
states that one person dies of
melanoma every 68 minutes in
America.
Florida's statewide central
cancer registry, the Florida
Cancer Data System (FCDS),
reported that there were a
total of 15,769 new melanoma
cases for the .five-year period
of 2000 to 2004. According
to FCDS' most recent data,
in 2004 there were a total of
2,773 new melanoma cases.
Individuals should care-
fully examine all of their moles
and birthmarks, looking for
the ABCs of possible mela-


noma: Asymmetry, Border
irregularity, Color variation,
Diameter greater than a pencil
eraser and Enlargement.
Exposure to the sun's
ultraviolet (UV) rays appears
to be the most important envi-
ronmental factor in the pro-
gressiqn of skin cancer. This
makes skin cancer a largely
preventable disease when sun
protection measures against
UV rays are used consistently.
People can take many sim-
/ ple steps to plan ahead and
protect themselves from the
sun's UV rays. These options
are important to use all year-
round and during all outdoor
activities. The main objective
is to prevent sunburn.
DOH recommends all
Floridians protect themselves
by following the safety tips
below:
Seek shade under a
tree, umbrella or shelter
Cover up with light-
weight 'clothing
Wear a hat to pro-
tect your face, scalp, ears and
neck
Apply (and reapply)
sunscreen liberally with at
least a sun protection factor
(SPF) of 15
Wear sunglasses that
deter UV rays
Avoid the sun between
10 a.m. and 4 p.m., even on
cloudy days
The Florida Department
of Health encourages every-
one to not only protect their
skin, but also get screened
for skin cancer. For more
information, call the National
Cancer Institute at (800) 4-
CANCER (422-6237) or visit
the CDC's Web site at: www.
cdc.gov/ChooseYourCover
ChooseYourCover > DOH
promotes and protects the
health and safety of all people
in Florida through the deliv-
-ery of quality public health
services and the promotion
of health care standards. For

cancer, please visit DOH's Web
site at www.doh.state.fl.us.

Sometimes you lose your friends to

marriage and the baby carriage

Story by CINDY ARORA
Illustration by LISA MERTINS
Freedom News Service
No one bothered to tell
me that shortly after
buying the $300 brides-
maid dress and giving a tipsy
but heartwarming champagne
toast in front of hundreds that
I was going lose my friend to
marriage.
Had I known I definite--
ly would have taken better
advantage of the open bar.
The loss began subtly.


Phone calls tapered off. Weeks
would pass before I saw her.
She skipped lunches, brunch-
es and any other food-related
get-togethers.
But the biggest clue? The
awkward conversations.
These included a lot
of forced giggling while she
regaled me at length -
about her crazy weekend at
The Home Depot because, you

to find a way to maintain our
friendship without giving up
and heading to our respective
corners of single-with-cat this
way and married-with-kids
thatta' way.
Asking around, it turns
out that this is not uncommon
for friends who now stand on
opposite sides of'the marital
fence.
Nadine Fluty. 28, saw Six
of her friends get married last
year. Nearly all of them have
changed in some way, she
said.
"I used to pick up the
phone and call them all the
time. But now I'll call someone
else mainly because I just can't
relate." said -Fluty. of Costa
Mesa. Calif. "Everything totally
revolves around the new mar-
riage, complaining about the
mother-in-law, house decorat-
ing and things I don't really
want to talk about.
"But I understand. People
evolve and enter new chapters
of their life." she said. "I'm very
independent and very single.
So I have a hard time relating
to married people. So, I found
a new group of friends."


Murray Kaufman, a
licensed marriage and fam-,
Ily therapist based in Santa
Ana, Calif., said that like most
relationships there are peaks
and valleys that people must
weather. But he does encour-
age married people to keep
their circle of friends active.
and this includes their single
friends.
"There is a feehng in soci-
ety that when you get married.
your life becomes focused only
on your marriage." he said.
"Sometimes there is a sense
that now their needs are going
to be met by that one person.
And that is a myth."
It is expected that mar-
ried folks are going to want to
focus on their spouse and their
new life path. Kaufman said.
but having outside friendships
and interests from the primary
relationship is key to a full and
balanced life.
"There are only so much
of your needs that can be met
in a single relationship," he
said. "It's important for all of
us to have different support
groups. so we can make our-
selves happy in life."

to each other and commiserate
together," she said. "We have
the same learning curve."
But friendships don't
have to end. They just have to
evolve.
Compromise and com-
munication the hallmarks
of any good relationship -
appear to be what it takes to
move with the tides in these
vacillating friendships. And if
it turns out your friendship
is worth it, so are the adjust-
ments.
Christy Cornelison, 32,
of Rancho Santa Margarita,
Calif., said she and her group
of friends have stayed close
throughout the years even as
some got married and others
stayed single.
She was one of the first in
her group to get married, but
said she made it a priority to
stay in touch with everyone.
"You have to find a mid-
dle ground. You please your
single friends by going out
and maybe you can bring your
husband. And then the single
friend comes over and watches
a movie with you."
SNow all of her friends are
married and have kids, and
they have formed a group they
fondly call "Hot Mamas."
As for my friend and I, we
did find a solution to make
our friendship work. These
days I go to her house, where
we gossip and giggle merci-
lessly in front of her husband,
who takes care of the baby and
makes us dinner and drinks
while we take time to catch
-lp.
It's different but definitely
a compromise I can live with.

PainFr

Rehabilitation succeeded
where other therapies, such as
ultrasound, didn't.
"I noticed it right away, it
was less sore. And I have pro-
gressively gotten better," she
says.
Some athletic trainers
have embraced the technology.
Cycling great Lance Armstrong
and members of the New
England Patriots are among
athletes reported to have used
cold lasers. The Olympic
Training Centers have used
low-level laser therapy for a
couple of years.
The therapy has been
found to reduce pain and
inflammation and increase
range of motion with some ath-
letes' injuries, says Margaret
Hunt, head athletic trainer at
the Colorado Springs Olympic
Training Center.
It seems to work best
on tissues that are relatively
superficial, such as injured
thumbs, wrists and ankles,
she said.
Although some companies
tout their lasers as the be-all
and end-all, the training center
uses laser therapy in conjunc-
tion with many other treat-
ments, Hunt says.
"We haven't conducted any
studies to say that this works
alone best in these situations,"
she says.
Carl Malone, a mas-
sage therapist and co-owner
of Alternative Rehabilitation
Therapies Inc. in Colorado
Springs, has used a cold laser
since 2002. He often uses it
in conjunction with massage
on patients referred to him by
doctors, podiatrists and chiro-
practors.


rom Page 11B

"It works really well with
calming muscle tension and
spasm," he says.
Clients don't feel the laser,
he says; it doesn't produce
heat. Sessions generally last
a few minutes. The number of
sessions depends on the per-
son and the ailment.
"The pain may be cut in
half with one visit," he says.
He also has found it reli-
able in treating his own ail-
ments, including quickly
reducing pain and swelling
from a smashed finger.
"I'm my own best client,"
he says. "I'm always hurt-
ing myself from running and
whatnot."

cussion on several different oc-
casions, mostly from people on

quested that Tim Croft from

Commissioner Traylor inquired
to Mr. Croft as to who writes
the editorial in The Star, and
Mr. Croft declined to com-
ment. Commissioner Traylor
discussed the negative Editori-
als in the newspaper that have
been directed toward the Board,
stating 'that if things are being
handled wrong, if money is be-
ing spent improperly, then the

issues. Commissioner Traylor
stated that there is a "bashing of
the Commissioners" every week,
and the person writing the edi-
torial does not know what he is
thinking.
Chairman McLemore dis-
cussed the article printed in

ing that it was not true, and he
asked that the truth be printed.

to include cost estimates. After
further discussion, Commis-
sioner Williams motioned that
Small developmental resources be
prioritized and a cost estimate
be brought before the Board.
Commissioner Traylor seconded
the motion for discussion. Com-
missioner Williams stated that
there is no project planning,
and that each project needs
to have a cost estimate put in
writing. Commissioner Traylor
inquired to Public Works Direc-
tor Shearer and Road Depart-
ment Superintendent Knee as to
how the\Departments are work-
ing together as a whole. Public

20B The Star. Port St. Joe, FL Thursday, May 18, 2006


Another Port St. Joe landmark
disappeared last week with the
demolition of Butler's Restaurant.
The Butler family operated the
popular dining establishment,
with its spectacular bay view, for
well over 30 years. The property
was purchased by developers
and the restaurant served its
final meals and drinks at a huge
party July 4, 2005.

B6 City accepts BP settlement Commission sets lighthouse relocation timeline By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@star .com The budget season began for Port St. Joe city commissioners on Tuesday, and there was a bonus on the ledger. Commissioners opened the process for crafting next scal year’s budget during a workshop, and among the items on the revenue side was more than half a million dollars from BP. Several meetings ago, commissioners approved attorneys to reach a nal number, and the oil giant’s nal compensation to the city for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill totaled $675,000 to settle all outstanding city claims. After attorney’s fees and other costs, the city netted $539,000, which city manager Jim Anderson said sits in a segregated account. And commissioners and staff came armed with a wish list of projects that are beyond the general fund budget but will serve as suggestions for spending the money. That wish list includes improvements to the Centennial Building, the 10th Street ball elds, the demolition and development of the old Gulf Pines Hospital site and, maybe most importantly, funding re nance charges on a loan with Regions Bank. Commissioners are examining ways to re nance that loan, which has a balloon payment in 2015, in order to maintain the lowest interest rate possible on long-term debt city manager Jim Anderson noted is approaching $20 million. Looming on the horizon, commissioners are waiting on the bidding for relocation of the Cape San Blas Lighthouse into the city. Clay Smallwood with Preble Rish Engineers mapped out the timeline for commissioners, as soil borings and testing of the new site have been completed.

During a special meeting, commissioners — Commissioner Warren Yeager was absent — approved a referendum on a one cent sales tax to fund mandatory garbage collection in county. The referendum, commissioners decided, would be held at the next general election in the fall of 2014. The county, administrator Don Butler said, should enter into discussions immediately with each municipality to determine their course of action. The cities of Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka would collect a share of the one cent sales tax. However, whether they followed the county’s lead in devoting those funds to rid the county of garbage bills remains to be seen “It would be nice for the city of Port St. Port foreclosure hearing this week By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.co m A circuit court hearing on foreclosure proceedings against the Port of Port St. Joe by Capital City Bank was scheduled to be held Wednesday. The hearing was scheduled after this newspaper went to print (go to www.star co m for any updates) but Port Authority attorney Tom Gibson has indicated he would be surprised if Circuit Court Judge Shonna Gay Young makes an immediate decision on the competing motions for summary judgment. With both sides seeking summary judgment, there are no legal facts in dispute, Gibson said. The bank is seeking foreclosure on a mortgage of more than $4 million on land that the Port Authority transformed into a barge terminal bulkhead with uplands site. The so-called Parcel B sits below the Tapper Bridge across the Intracoastal Waterway from the old Arizona Chemical site. The Port Authority has not made payments on the principal for several years. See GARBAGE A5 See PORT A5 By WES LOCHER 229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@starfl.co m Next weekend marks the start of the annual Scallop Festival in Port St. Joe and this year’s festivities will see two weekends worth of activities where an expected 8,000 attendees will celebrate Port St. Joe’s favorite mollusk. Though the Scallop Festival is in its 17th year, the faces behind the event are new. Chamber Director Paula Pickett was instrumental in gathering the music and volunteers for the 2013 celebration, but it was chamber newcomer Chellsey O’Neil who coordinated the layout of the event. O’Neil recently graduated from Florida State University with a degree in event management and worked to create an organized festival that she hopes will be consistent from year to year. For someone who up until now had focused on coordinating weddings, O’Neil welcomed the challenge of tackling Port St. Joe’s largest event. “It really opened up a door for me to learn on a big scale,” she said. “It’s been a good experience.” This year’s layout will condense vendors, music and seating to create an atmosphere that will allow attendees to celebrate together rather than be widely spread out. In addition, Pickett and O’Neil have also worked to qualify vendors, ensuring booths aren’t repetitive and they are selling products suitable to the festival. Other updates for this year’s fest will include a streamline of the registration process for vendors, a green room for participating musicians, an on-site information and rst-aid tent, a VIP tent for event sponsors, and the amount of scallop cooks will be increased to shorten lines for Scallop festival receives makeover See SCALLOP A8 A kinship renewed through DAWGS program By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.co m Julia Cunningham thought she was nished with dogs after losing her beloved white lab Sandman over the winter. Vince Bishop had never experienced ownership of a dog he could call his own. That the couple would come to adopt a dog from the 27th graduating class of the DAWGS in Prison program serves as an example of what makes the program a success. After losing Sandman, Cunningham said she was nished with dogs, at least for the time being. “I had just lost the love my life, my Sandman,” Cunningham said. “I wasn’t ready.” But neighbor Sandi Christy, the co-director of DAWGS (Developing Adoptable dogs with Good Sociability) in Prison, asked if Cunningham and Bishop could serve as foster parents for 10 days for a dog about to enter the program. “Maybe she sensed something, I don’t know,” Cunningham laughed.

Local A2 | The Star Thursday, July 18, 2013 “Maybe she was playing with me.” Bishop is a longtime supporter of DAWGS, donating the program’s website and website updates through his company Server Solutions. Cunningham is a longtime supporter of the St. Joseph Bay Humane Society. The dog, whose name is now Barley in recognition of Bishop’s favorite beverage, came to live with the couple as foster parents pending training and it didn’t take long before Cunningham was smitten. The dog, a lab/ spaniel mix, reminded Cunningham of Sandman and Maggie, a beagle breed owned by Cunningham that had also passed in recent years. “He’s perfect,” Cunningham said. “He is such a blend of Sandman and Maggie. The dog nds you; that’s what happens. You don’t nd the dog, the dog nds you.” As for Bishop, “He fell in love with it,” Cunningham said. There were, of course, some issues with Barley, another dog in the long line of canine that have navigated the DAWGS program after being raised in less than ideal circumstances. While dogs are screened by the St. Joseph Bay Humane Society for temperament, health and ability to be trained, they share one thing: they are alone and facing an uncertain future before entering the eight weeks of training in the DAWGS program. Barley was showing signs of experiencing separation anxiety while alone at the couple’s home and would nip the hands that fed and pet him. But 10 days after dropping Barley off at the Gulf Forestry Camp where the training with inmate teams takes place, Cunningham said the changes were dramatic. She and Bishop brought Barley home for a weekend, still serving as foster parents to Barley. “He was a totally different dog,” Cunningham said. “He is very smart and he was just so much better.” During the eight weeks of training, Christy’s primary task, one she works tirelessly at, is to match dogs with potential “forever” homes and families. The fit must be right and Christy and her co-director Judy Miick, along with Humane Society director Melody Townsend, expend considerable time and energy to making the perfect match. To date, 293 dogs have been trained and adopted into new homes. The program has experienced just one instance in which the match did not find traction. As Christy reviewed the applications for Barley, none seemed to fit all the proper parameters. Meanwhile Cunningham and Bishop were becoming more attached, less foster and more forever parents. “I finally told Vince we really should make up our mind,” Cunningham said with a laugh. “Now he is graduated and he is just the perfect part of the family.” Barley, Cunningham said, is about two years old and “has so much energy.” And he carries daily reminders for Cunningham of best friends lost and new friends found. She sees Sandman in the way Barley lays at her feet, for instance. As he picks at his food, she sees Maggie. “The things he does are so much like a blend of those two dogs it is amazing,” Cunningham said. The DAWGS in Prison program has not only graduated nearly 300 dogs in just over four years, it has seen nearly the same number of inmates – who must apply, interview and maintain rigorous standards to be part of the program – “graduate.” The inmates move up the chain from caretaker to handler to trainer to lead trainer, honing skills that a number have used once out behind bars to become productive in life. One inmate, behind bars for half his 40 years before being accepted into the DAWGS program, works with animals in the Pacific Northwest. Another found work with an animal shelter in Central Florida. They learn during those eight weeks almost as much as the dogs. “They learn the little steps,” Cunningham said. “They are learning patience, compassion, discipline. We did work with the inmates and they seemed to really care about the dogs and worked great with the dogs. They become as much success stories as the DAWGS graduate trained to be diabetic alert dog that saved his owner’s life. Or the dog trained to be a companion for an autistic child, helping that child better cope with his challenges. “There are so many things good things about that program,” Cunningham said. “Everything is right with that program.” In addition to Cunningham and Bishop, one couple at the June 26 graduation was adopting their second graduate from DAWGS. Parker, named the Top Dog in the class, is in New Jersey with a family of two young boys. Because of strict spay/ neuter laws in swaths of the Northeast, the demand for adoptable dogs is high. Since its inception the DAWGS program has sent dozens of dogs to the Northeast corridor, Christy said. The most recent graduates were sent to six states: Alabama, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Florida, Christy said. With graduation of one class comes the arrival of another, an eight-dog class that will graduate Aug. 21.

The turtle, affectionately named “Mayday,” was taken to Gulf World in Panama City, where it was diagnosed with pneumonia and had abscesses on its shell due to growth and debris in the water. Mayday underwent rehabilitation for two months and on Wednesday, was nally returned to sea. Stephanie Nagle, an Education Coordinator with Gulf World Marine Institute oversaw the process of getting Mayday back in the water. A crowd of more than 50 spectators also lined the beach in Beacon Hill. Nagle stressed the importance of returning the turtles close to where they nd them. “We don’t want to release them too far off the beaten path,” she said. Mayday is believed to be between 10-12 years in age, which makes her a juvenile. Most sea turtles don’t reach maturity until they are over 20 and most live somewhere between 60-80 years. Nagle said, “He’s just a baby.” In addition to beachvisiting families and the media, members of the St. Andrews Turtle Watch out of Bay County were onhand to encourage Mayday in his return to the Gulf. After a quick rest in the sand, Mayday felt the water and quickly shufed his way head-rst into the surf. Those on shore cheered and waved goodbye. Kids kept their eyes on the turtle for as long as they could and sent words of encouragement with him. For Nagle, seeing an event like this reminded of her of why she’d dedicated more than two years to rescuing marine mammals across the Gulf. “Working with sea animals has been a long dream of mine,” she said. “I’m very excited to be a part of this.” Gulf World Marine Institute is a non-prot organization and part of the Southeast Marine Mammal Stranding Network and the Sea Turtle Stranding and Salvage Network. The group works with turtles and dolphins that need rescue rehabilitation or release and is the only long-term marine mammal rehabilitation facility in Northern Florida. Over the years, its team has come to the aid of thousands of sick or debilitated stranded marine animals.

Local The Star| A3 Thursday, July 18, 2013 the lighthouse once moved. The city will advertise for bids for the project — moving the lighthouse, keepers’ quar ters and oil house from their current location on Air Force land on Cape San Blas to a site next to George Core Park — from Aug. 1-8. A pre-bid conference will be Aug. 15 with the awarding of the final day for accepting bids Aug. 29. The hope, Smallwood said, is to have a recommendation for award at the Sept. 1 commission meeting. “We want to get it done as soon as we can,” Mayor Mel Magidson said. The city continues to wait on an actual deed for the structures from the federal government. The bids, Smallwood said, will provide the template for how the structures will be moved — various scenarios have been offered informally, from mov ing overland to using a barge or even helicopter. The bids also will offer a win dow into a definitive price for the project, which has been the subject of much public debate. The city has a $325,000 his toric preservation grant from the city and some $40,000 raised by the St. Joseph Historical Society. The PSJRA also has placed in its budget some funding for the lighthouse project, though the PSJRA board has yet to for mally convey any of the funds to the city. The city submitted a re quest for more than $900,000 for the relocation to the county RESTORE Act committee, but the mayor has said during past meetings that he has received informal estimates between $200,000 and $250,000. Tentative millage rate For the sixth consecutive year, commissioners adopted a “planning” tentative millage with full intent of coming down as close to the current millage as possible. By law, taxing authorities have 30 days, or until Aug. 1, to provide the property appraiser and Florida Department of Rev enue a proposed millage rate. That is the rate showing up on Truth in Millage (TRIM) notices going out to property owners. However, while crafting the budget, the taxing authority may still move down on its mill age; but it is locked in from go ing any higher. The city adopted an increase of one mill — a mill equals $1 for every $1,000 in assessed taxable property value — but commis sioners emphasized they had little intention of levying that mill. “We know we are going to come down,” Magidson said. “We’ve consciously left taxes and millage the same in recent years because water rates were going up. We didn’t want to hit people twice.” Water and sewer rates are set to rise again in the fall for the third-straight year. The city’s current millage of 3.5914 is the lowest in the coun ty. The city also realized the only increase in value to its mill this year, with an increase of $10,021 to the general fund. Water, water Commissioners, again ex pressing frustration with the slow pace of information on a water study from water plant de signer CDM Smith, entertained several recommendations for addressing water issues short and long term. Plant manager Larry McLamma said the city is com ing up on some of its most im portant annual water testing for the state and the lack of unidirectional maintenance flush ing since early in the year is an issue. The flushing was ceased for the CDM water study, but with the study well behind schedule — an initial report expected months ago remains at least a week away, Smallwood said — McLamma emphasized the need to resume flushing, partic ularly as water complaints have increased recently. Smallwood said he would talk to David Kozan of CDM Smith about the flushing and indicated he did not see a major problem with resuming the flushing. Commissioner Rex Buzzett said he had been in conversa tions with staff at the Northwest Florida Water Management Dis trict about the viability of secur ing a grant to run new pipe the 17-mile length of the freshwater canal to bring water directly from the Chipola River Pump Station to the water plant. The clarity of the water in the canal has been an issue since the plant opened. Mowing along the canal is a constant need, and tree sap and other contami nants fall into the water on the way to the plant. By piping the water and mak ing improvements to the pump station, the city could be in po sition to be the regional water supplier the NWFWMD hopes the city to be, once it solves the discoloration issue, Buzzett suggested Buzzett noted the water management district has funds in reserve it has been instruct ed by state legislators to expend on water projects throughout the region. Finally, Smallwood said the USDA had moved paperwork ahead on the sidewalk project for MLK Boulevard, approval of which has held up the water and sewer line replacement for streets in the neighborhood of North Port St. Joe.

Circulation:1-800-345-8688 O PINION www.starfl.com A Section By Ed McAteer Special to The Star I love America, and I am still convinced it is the best place on this planet to live. I love its abundance of blessings, and the freedoms it offers to worship my God and be part of an effort to publicize His original message to mankind in a manner unmatched and unwanted in most countries. YOUTUBE recently posted a clip titled “Americans Don’t Know WHY We Celebrate the 4th of July or WHAT COUNTRY We Declared Independence From!” Really? Fifth-grade geography use to teach this. What happened? America has forgotten the God that gave the nation its blessed location, its freedom, and the natural bene ts, which the people receive. The very founding document that is the touchstone of America’s nationhood acknowledges the Eternal God in its opening and closing paragraphs, and twice in the body of that document. The actual words and phrases used in these instances are “Nature’s God,” “Creator,” “Supreme Judge of the world” and “Divine Providence”. Patrick Henry’s liberty speech of March 23, 1775, which spurred those assembled to support the Revolutionary War, sought to stir up the members of the governing House to seek the truth “and ful ll the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country,” declaring his loyalty toward “the Majesty of heaven.” George Washington declared in his inaugural speech “it would be peculiarly improper to omit in this rst of cial act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules the universe… that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States. No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand, which conducts the affairs of men, more than those of the United States.” This nation of America was founded on a vision that it was Gods will, and that the nation should act to please Him. Indeed, with its judiciary and too many in its legislative bodies now not only outing—via the decisions they are imposing on the nation—but deliberately ying in the face of God’s irreversible laws governing humankind, it would seem that the agenda of the Obama radicals to trash the nation’s Constitution is well advanced. To declare, as God’s very Word does, that He will curse a nation which He once so richly endowed with blessings when they throw those blessings back in His face and deny Him as their benefactor, tends today to make one a laughing stock. It will get you quickly labeled as eccentric, and the establishment you represent a crazy sect. So what? That’s exactly how the world viewed Jesus Christ and His Church long ago. Check the records of the insurance industry today, check the weather records, and check the number, size, and extent of catastrophe that is increasingly affecting the United States, and you are left with an undeniable fact. The incidence of such phenomena is not only increasing, but also the level of catastrophe and the cost to the nation is breaking all records. It’s a simple matter of cause and effect. Submit to the law of God and He will bless you. Break the law consistently without repentance and it will break you (Deuteronomy 30:19-20). I weep for the nation. I weep for its people, for I know the end result of the radicals’ agenda. It is written large and clear for all to see in the very Word of God for which America’s Founding Fathers had so much respect, unlike so many in the nation’s current administration who seem to be so intent on trashing that very Word with their every act. Even so, the signs are that the window of time left to those who courageously continue Reality is— we are so lost Page 4 Thursday, July 18, 2013 It is almost certain that you have seen the phrase, “Veni, Vidi, Vici.” The phrase means, “I came, I saw, I conquered.” Julius Caesar meant it when he sent this message back to the patrician Senate in 47 BC. He was basically saying exactly what it sounds like and saying it with more than a wee bit of arrogance. Caesar was brief and to the point and still managed to emphasize his rudeness/ arrogance to the Senate. It was also meant to say, “Not only did I do it, but I did it quick.” Whether it is in battle or on a eld in front of thousands of screaming fans, we often are inspired by the words of military leaders, coaches and athletes. Folks collect these quotes and spit them out at opportune times before, during and after battles, personal trials, sporting events and fraternity parties that have gotten out of hand. I’m not that coach. After coaching youth baseball teams for over 30 years, I have come to the realization that as much as I love the game of baseball, I’m not going to be the kind of coach to quote Knute Rockne, Vince Lombardi or even Bear Bryant. I might quote Larry Bird, the famous Boston Celtic. He once noted that to be great, “First master the fundamentals.” However, I would write it out so my baseball team could see it this way, “First master the FUNdamentals.” Admittedly, over the years I have changed. I make more strategic errors, poor decisions and outright stupid coaching mistakes than I did when I coached my rst team at 17 years-old. I’ve become more of a spectator with a better seat inside the fence. One of the teams I coach is a more competitive team traveling on weekends within and sometimes outside the state to play other similar teams. The chemistry of this particular team seems to lend well to my underlying goal of fun and camaraderie. On a recent Sunday, we were playing our third game in the blistering heat. One umpire passed out, a couple of players were suffering from minor wounds and all of the guys were worn out. We generally carry ten players and bat the entire lineup, taking turns with one fellow sitting on the bench. With my back to the bench, I heard the little brother of one of players talking. He is around 11 years-old and quite a baseball player himself. He enjoys sitting in the dugout with us; I enjoy having him there. Eavesdropping, not wanting to get caught, I couldn’t tell exactly who the boy was addressing. The little boy noted to one of the guys on the bench or to his parents, “We are losing, they act like they are winning, they sure are having a good time to be losing.” Sure enough, the team was laughing, poking fun at each other and having a good time. They had played well for the most part and seemed to have “mastered the FUNdamentals.” I’m sure I had a grin on my face, because it hurt; my lips had burnt from being in the sun all day. There are many schools of thought on kids playing travel baseball, soccer, lacrosse and every other sport folks can make a dollar off of parents’ dreams of college scholarships and posh summer homes to retire to after their kids make the big leagues. Loving sports and mathematics, I have looked at the numbers and probabilities for years, in terms of a boy getting to play big league baseball. After looking at the numbers, I realize there will always be a lot of folks who will still spend thousands on the dream of their son or daughter being a professional athlete. Dreaming is a good thing, but let’s take a look at it from a numbers perspective. I’m relatively con dent in my calculations. We rst have to start with 1000 high school seniors playing baseball. So this is not the general public, you have to have played at least at the high school level. Of those 1000 high school seniors, roughly 5.6% will go on to play college baseball. Fair enough, that means we have 56 boys playing college baseball. Before you get your hopes up for a “full ride” baseball scholarship, understand that a typical college baseball team has about 11 scholarships to divide among 35 or more baseball players. A typical baseball scholarship is around 30%. Back to the 56 fellows who make it to a college roster; roughly 10.5% of those will be drafted to play in the minor league system of a professional baseball team. To make it easy, let’s round it up to 6 guys who get paid to play baseball out of the original 1000. A 10% chance of making it from the minor leagues to a big league ball club is very generous. 10% of 6 fellows is of course sixtenths of one player. Not meaning he is short, just that his chances are quite small. You could add in those high school players who get drafted to play minor league baseball right of high school and maybe get up to almost a “full person” out of the original 1000 boys playing high school baseball. Fewer than half of the rookies in professional baseball make it to ve years. The big money (free agency) starts at 6 years. Note here that this is the same way the warranty on your car or washing machine works. However, if you do play 43 games of professional baseball, you are eligible for a pension of around $35,000 per year. This is not enough to help your parents buy their posh summer home, or live comfortably on for that matter. I’m not saying that you should invest your money in preparing for college entrance tests, but you should kind of see my point. (I’m not saying you shouldn’t invest in preparing your child for college entrance exams either.) Just my luck! I’ve been trying to get to Los Angeles ever since I was knee high to a grasshopper. I wanted to see the rocks the Lone Ranger rode through at the start of every television show. I wanted to ride by the Republic Studios where all those great westerns were made. I wanted to pet the MGM lion. I wanted to drive down Wilshire Boulevard and pretend I was Sergeant Joe Friday working “homicide out of day watch” searching for “just the facts, ma’am”. I nally make it ... on the exact same day that every person in America that owns an automobile decided to drive into the famed City of Angles! People, I’m on an eight lane freeway that is completely stopped. I didn’t see any smoke up ahead. Tom Cruise wasn’t lming a chase scene as far as I could tell. There was no turned over tanker truck spewing forth toxic waste. I could believe two or three lanes on a busy day; or four lanes if there was major construction; or maybe six lanes on a Friday afternoon. But eight lanes? And none of them moving! What kind of place is this? I’d purposely chosen mid-morning on Monday to avoid any rush. I wondered how quiet it must be in Denver, Chicago and Los Vegas with no cars on their streets. I went to studying the drivers around me. Maybe I could spot Bruce Willis or Yvonne DeCarlo. We did inch by the John Wayne Airport. That didn’t seem right to me. You ought to name a horse ranch after the Duke; or a high mesa overlooking the town; or even an army base would be acceptable ... but I don’t remember many John Wayne airport movies. On Tuesday afternoon we made it to Sunset Boulevard and started towards downtown. I just thought I’d been in some traf c! Whew, you talk about a sh out of water. And I can’t believe how those drivers blow their horns at you. We passed Rodeo Drive without even glancing over. The last thing on earth I needed was a three hundred dollar pair of sequined jeans. We drove right through the middle of Beverly Hills. I couldn’t see one house for all the tall hedges and high stone fences. And when I found out the “tour of the stars’ homes” didn’t include where Randolph Scott used to live, I wasn’t interested. I did ask the girl selling the tickets if she could kindly point out the Jed Clampett mansion but that didn’t even get a icker out of her. She had a script in her hand and she was sticking to it. She allowed that she wasn’t going to be working on this tour much longer. Her acting career was just about to take off. She had a boyfriend who had a cousin who knew a guy that once worked for Steven Spielberg. That Sunset Boulevard goes on “for a while”! I had Cathy looking out for a Cracker Barrel. There is nothing that will make you hungrier than sitting in stalled traf c all day. Sweet tea is more elusive out here than Cracker Barrels. You can get it hot. You can get it cold without sugar. You can get it with ginger and raspberry. You probably could get it with fruits and nuts ... but Cathy told me not to write that down. You just can’t get it like your mother used to make it! We did drive by a place named “The Smokehouse Restaurant, Video Store and Laundry Mat” but we didn’t see it until it was too late. And turning around wasn’t an option! Those folks must have moved here from Tennessee, or Alabama. They would have at least heard of sweet tea! Cathy spotted a Chickl-A and I crossed over two lanes and made what probably was an unlawful turn into an all night discotheque parking lot. We ran back a block and a half to get a chicken salad sandwich and some waf e fries. The nice cashier told us how to get to the Hollywood sign and also let us know right quick that she wouldn’t be “taking chicken orders” much longer. She gave us her name twice and told us to remember it. Her ex mother-in-law was dating a guy whose sister was formerly married to an executive at Orion Pictures. I thought about asking for a job at the discotheque. That’s how much I did not want to get back into that car! Apparently Sgt. Friday and Of cer Gannon lmed there street scenes in a back lot somewhere. I did some serious soul searching and hard “life” pondering looking up at that big “Hollywood” sign spread ostentatiously across the hill side. I considered “cool” and “suave” versus “hick” and “naive”. I grew up in a small West Tennessee town. We were not chic by any stretch of the imagination. We couldn’t even spell “hip”. We were about as plain and country as we could get. No airs. No pretense. No highfalutin ideas. But we didn’t have to put a giant, lighted sign up on the hill to remind us where we lived.

CRANKS from page A4 The Port Authority is countering with a motion for summary judgment based the contention that the Port Authority was prohibited by law from mortgaging public property in the rst place without a public referendum. The outcome could also impact the Board of County Commissioners pur suit of additional collateralization for a $199,000 loan made last year to the Port Authority. There have been recent discussions with the bank about deeding the prop erty to the bank while the bank would allow the port to proceed with its op erations and providing a right of rst refusal to the Port Authority should another prospective buyer emerge. Gibson indicated those discus sions have zzled as the hearing approaches. The Port Authority board has been disinclined to act on any proposal in volving Parcel B or its collateralization until after the hearing. While Parcel B is an important component to the port master plan ning area, port director Tommy Pitts noted that the focus for the port in de veloping for the future is the shipping channel and lands in port and St. Joe Company hands open for deepwater shipping. The Port Authority and St. Joe Company entered into a collaborative agreement last year on development of the port. With two Letters of Intent entered into by St. Joe with energy compa nies, the port stands to see more than 1 million metric tons of wood pellets shipped through the Port of Port St. Joe within two to ve years. But those LOIs are contingent on dredging the shipping channel to au thorized depth. Pitts said he, port ofcials and of cials with St. Joe recently met with the staff of Congressman Steve Souther land (R-Panama City) and a legislative liaison from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to get a better understand ing of the process of accomplishing the dredging. The Corps will ultimately perform the dredging. The Port Authority and St. Joe are exploring the quickest and most ef cient path to the Corps and dredg ing, specically securing funding and permitting. “It was a lot of information we had already heard and there are still more questions,” Pitts said. Pitts said it remained unclear if on the permitting side the Port Authority would need to undertake an Environ mental Impact Statement or the less time-consuming and less expensive Environmental Assessment. There was also a question about reauthorization given the last time the shipping channel was dredged – 1980 – and Pitts said the dredging would be more expensive because of the time lapse and volume of spoil material. St. Joe has indicated a willingness to consider providing company-owned lands for spoil sites – an important hurdle – and it remains a potential that some dredged material be suitable for beach nourishment. Pitts also noted that the two LOIs would meet the tonnage threshold requirements for the Corps to step in and dredge. Another arrow in the port’s quiver is also that maintenance dredging, once done, would only need to be re peated every eight to 10 years as op posed to many ports that require such dredging on an annual or biannual ba sis, Pitts said. “I am optimistic about getting cer tication,” said Port Authority board chairman Leonard Costin. “It is the same problem we have had. We have an ambitious objective of getting the dredging done in two years.” The Port Authority board last week approved Hatch Mott McDon ald as the engineering rm that will undertake the work required for permitting. “We can not proceed with task specics (in order to assess the costs) until we receive clarication on the di rection we will go,” Pitts said. Operational funds Another Port Authority meeting was spent discussing the dire revenue situation for the port as the new scal year dawns at the end of September. Come the new scal year, the Port of Port St. Joe will operate on a “barebones” budget with no funding for the port director position beyond the $1 per month Pitts is currently paid. Further ofce presence would be from one contract employee working part-time. Costin said the Port Authority would make it through the current scal year and he has looked at a variety of sourc es for funding to no avail. “We need a break,” said board member Eugene Rafeld. “We need a big bone sent to this county. It has not been for lack of effort.” Costin proposed a public fund raising campaign – he was willing to pledge $500 from his business last week which he would encourage oth ers to match – to provide operational dollars for the port in the short-term. “We have to keep this going,” Cos tin said. “We can not stop it. This is the salvation for the community and the region. “I am taking this as a serious challenge.” Costin said he wanted to see com munity support, which might also serve as further ammunition as the Port Authority and St. Joe lobby for funding for dredging and improve ments to the AN Railway. Rafeld suggested the board table the concept until after this week’s hearing and board member Johanna White said they should have a market ing plan in place for the effort. “We need to be able to lay our cards on the table for the community,” Raf eld said. Board member Patrick Jones said the idea should be up for detailed discussion at the next Port Authority meeting. “We need to do everything we can,” Jones said. Joe and the city of Wewahi tchka to be under the same umbrella as the county,” said Commissioner Ward McDaniel. The hope, Butler said after the meeting, would be for the cities to join the county as waste pickup service contracts expire over the next year which would provide a larger bid ding base to aid in bringing overall prices down. “We denitely should put the contract out for bid whether voters approve (the referendum) or not,” said Commissioner Car men McLemore. The motion on the refer endum came after Butler had laid out the county’s options for addressing gar bage collection. Two of those options included moving to manda tory garbage pickup in un incorporated areas. Butler said three area counties have such ordi nances, Calhoun, Liberty and Wakulla. He noted that Calhoun had a “soft” ordinance in which residents “volun teer” to be on garbage pickup. But by having the ordinance, code enforce ment has the ability to step in should garbage become an issue on a property. In Liberty, some cus tomers are billed monthly and others quarterly while in Wakulla the annual gar bage bill was added onto property tax notices. To add the bill to the property tax Truth in Mill age (TRIM) statements would require the county to complete a “Solid Waste Assessment Study” to determine who would or would not be excluded and what rates would be paid. That study must be completed, at a cost of over $43,000, by the Dec. 31 for the county to levy the bill on TRIM notices next year. Another con in that sce nario, Butler noted, is that the garbage bill in some cases might be higher than the property tax bill. There are 2,512 cus tomers with garbage ser vice in unincorporated Gulf County. There are some 2,500-4,000 county residents who do not have garbage service. The primary challenge for the county budget com mittee, which has been wrestling with the issue of a landll that loses money and the lack of manda tory garbage pickup, was to make the collection of garbage more “efcient,” Butler said. In addition, the goal in bargaining for a new con tract supported with a onecent sales tax would be to eliminate or greatly reduce the county’s costs for yard debris and roadside gar bage pickup. Excess rev enue from the sales tax could be devoted to the landll, Butler said. “The only real savings to the county is to get out of the roadside pickup,” said deputy administrator Mi chael Hammond. “We’ve got to get out of the road side pickup business.” Hammond noted that in mate crews and the county limb truck bring that debris to the landll, which does not receive tipping fees for the material. Further, the county expense in fuel and wearand-tear on the limb vehi cle would be reduced. McDaniel agreed that the county needs to get out of the roadside pickup business, saying limb re moval had become almost “an entitlement” to county residents. McLemore expressed dissent on any move to mandatory garbage pick up, saying it would create a hardship for many resi dents in his district scrap ing by nancially. “(Mandatory garbage pickup) is something I will not support,” McLemore said. “I do like the idea of a one cent sales tax. That might work for the county and the people I represent. “Let the people decide. I think that’s the only way to go.” McDaniel said while he disagreed with additional taxes, he was not in favor of strict mandatory gar bage pickup as a windfall for whatever vendor the county had and said the one-cent sales tax would spread the cost around to visitor and resident alike. “Mandatory garbage pickup makes sense for everybody,” said South Gulf County resident Pat Hardman, president of the Coastal Community Asso ciation. “Whoever makes the problem should bear a cost for pickup. If we go to mandatory it is fair.” Commissioner Joanna Bryan dissented on the referendum because it put any decision on address ing the costs to the county off another 16 months at minimum. “It pushes the issue down the road,” Bryan said. She also said the impact of another penny to the sales tax could be difcult for small businesses strug gling with sales to absorb and also emphasized the need to bid out garbage service when the current contract expires early next year to bring prices down. “I would like to see bet ter prices,” Bryan said. “I’d like to see if this went out for bid what the cost will be. That would be informa tion we would need.” GARBAGE from page A1 PORT from page A1 THE PORT ST. JOE STAR FIND US ON FACEBOOK @ PSJ_StarFOll LL OW US ON TWI WI TTE E R

By TOM BAIRD Special to The Star Scallop season is in full swing and St. Joseph Bay is lled with boats, divers and snorkelers, all intent on collecting that delectable mollusk. Even individuals who don’t eat seafood often make scallops their sole exception. The white muscle meat is slightly sweet, tender, and lends itself to easy preparation in a variety of ways. The scallop that fuels our local scallop collecting economy is the Atlantic Bay Scallop, Argopecten irradians. Found from the Gulf of Mexico to Cape Cod, this scallop is conveniently collected by swimmers since it occurs from the low tide line down to about 50 feet and rarely gets larger than about 3 inches. The scallop of course is a bivalve mollusk, that is, it has two hinged shells that cover the soft body, like oysters, clams and mussels. Unlike oysters, once they mature, scallops can move. They swim by swift contractions of the adductor muscle, the muscle that closes the two shells, which produces jets of water from the mantle cavity. Much like clapping, this produces a jerky, almost comical escape from a predator. To make this escape the scallop uses eighteen pairs of eyes that fringe the edge of the mantle cavity. As any collector knows, all those eyes are intense blue. Like our eyes, each eye has a lens, retina, cornea, and optic nerve. These enable the scallop to see movements or shadows in order to detect predators. The scallop also has specialized cells on tentacles along the edge of the mantle that are sensitive to chemicals in the water. These also help the bay scallop react to its environment. Young scallops are sessile, that is they attach to something like the blades of turtle grass. After fertilization, young scallops develop into a stage called a veliger that is planktonic, that is it drifts with the currents. They remain in this stage for 10-14 days. As the organism matures, they develop into juvenile scallops called spat. They then settle out of the water column and attach themselves to seagrass blades. Eventually they detach and remain on the bottom. The young scallop shells may be red, orange, or yellow and look like miniature adults. As they mature, the shell becomes the brown, tan or gray shell usually seen. Having a healthy scallop population requires clean, unpolluted waters, and healthy meadows of seagrasses for the young scallops to attach while they mature. To maintain our scallop collecting economy requires protecting the lush turtle grass beds from destruction by boat propellers or silting. Bay scallops are not long lived, rarely reaching two years. In Florida, scallops rarely live more than a year. After settling out as spat, they reach reproductive maturity quickly, and in Florida, most spawning occurs as water temperatures drop. Destruction of seagrass beds in previous years all around Florida and water pollution has greatly reduced the range of the bay scallop. In Florida, bay scallop populations are now typically sparse and scattered, and primarily along the upper Gulf coast. We are fortunate to be in the current legal harvest zone for bay scallops, which extends from the Pasco-Hernando County line northward to the Mexico Beach Canal, encompassing the Big Bend area of the Florida coast. Besides St. Joseph Bay, other sites nearby for collecting include the seagrass ats off St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge in Wakulla County and Keaton Beach in Taylor County. Collecting must be by hand or dip net. The scallops you purchase in stores or seafood markets likely come from China, or possibly Japan. These are generally aquaculture raised scallops. By most recent gures, China accounts for about 80 percent of the global scallop catch. There is a U.S. shery for the larger Atlantic Sea Scallop, which are harvested by dredges or trawls. The commercial harvest of bay scallops has been closed in Florida state waters since 1994; however, Commissioners for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have directed staff to explore the possibility of future commercial harvest of bay scallops. Because the scallop shell is so symmetrical, the scallop shell has become a frequent motif in art and architecture. Every automobile driver knows one place you see the scallop shellthe logo of Shell Oil or more correctly, Royal Dutch Shell. Yet few know why. The company traces its beginnings to 1833, when Marcus Samuel established an import business selling seashells to collectors in England. Years later, while collecting shells in the Caspian Sea, his son realized there was money in exporting oil from the Black Sea region. He commissioned an oil tanker to be built and by the early 20th century, he had a eet of tankers. Although the scallop shell logo has changed over the years, nevertheless, the logo pays homage to the company’s earliest beginning as a seashell importing enterprise. Whether you collect the live scallop or just enjoy eating it, many enjoy collecting the scallop shells that wash up on our beaches. Besides bay scallop shells, there are usually shells of the more colorful calico scallop, Argopecten gibbus. Closely related to bay scallops, the calico scallop lives in deeper offshore waters on sandy bottoms. This shell is noted for the colors of maroon, lavender or red against a creamy white background. This scallop ourishes as far south as Brazil and throughout the Caribbean. We have abundant calico scallops, but their greatest concentration is on the Florida east coast, especially around Cape Canaveral.

Club president Willie Ramsey presented high school athletic director Chuck Gannon with a check for $7,000 last week, representing in part the proceeds of the highly-successful annual chicken dinner fundraiser and closing the books on another successful year for the Shark 100 Club. As it prepares for its 27th year, the club has donated to date — including underwriting the annual chicken dinner fundraiser — almost $200,000 since 1986 to Tiger Shark athletics. “They have had a tremendous impact,” Gannon said. “It’s very helpful. It is a good collaboration, people working together for the bene t of the kids. “We appreciate everything the Shark 100 Club does for us.” The annual chicken dinner fundraiser, which alone raised more than $3,000 in selling more than 660 dinners, is a testament to that collaboration. The Shark 100 Club picks up the tab for the components of the meal, chicken, coleslaw, baked beans and beverages and a cooking team of club members, led by School Board member John Wright, do most of the cooking. “So many people put so much into cooking those chicken dinners,” Ramsey said. On top of that, the coaching staffs do of the serving. Tickets to the fundraiser are sold in advance throughout the community. Each athletic team at the high school receives an allotment of tickets to sell. The proceeds, represented by the check last week, is disbursed in turn among all sports teams. “We are not just donating to football or basketball or baseball,” Ramsey said. “The Shark 100 Club is an universal account for all the high school athletics. “There is sweat-equity in there for the athletes. They get out what they put into it.” Gannon said funds raised are divided among the sports programs based on several factors: involvement in the fundraiser and ability to bring in fans being two of the most prominent. “The ones that are in need and pull in the people, those are the sports we are trying to help,” Gannon said. Beyond raising funds, Gannon added, there is a sense of common purpose, of joint effort to buttress the athletic programs at a time when austerity is the buzz word and funding is a precious commodity for all extracurricular activities.

Local A8 | The Star Thursday, July 18, 2013 hungry attendees. “Everything is well-organized,” said O’Neil. “It’s like our baby.” On Saturday, July 27 the Race for the Scallops begins with 5K and 10K runs down the Port City Trail. “Runs have been successful in the past and it’s a different way to engage visitors,” said Pickett. “We can show the sights and sounds through a different avenue. In this case, our beautiful trails.” The following day offers a 20and 42-mile bike “fun ride” from St. Joseph Peninsula State Park to Salinas Park for the rst leg, and those interested in completing the journey can continue on to the Franklin County line before returning to the Cape. “We’d like to get people to the Cape and State Park,” said Pickett. “We want to get people into different parts of the community.” Registration for the footrace and fun ride is $15 in advance and contestants will receive a T-shirt to commemorate the Scallop Festival. The fun ride is sponsored by Velo bicycle on Reid Avenue and the Friends of the St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. The following week, the party moves to George Core Park where on Friday, Aug. 2, gates will open at 5 p.m. ET. Vendors and live music will be on hand for hours of preweekend entertainment. This year’s festival will include music acts from all over the region, from Tallahassee to Fort Walton to South Florida, to right here in Port St. Joe. The Curry Brothers, Flabbergasted and Jim Morris will provide the lineup for the rst day and music will go until 11 p.m. in the evening. “There will be music the entire time that the gates are open,” said Pickett. “At any point you can come out and hear live music.” There are 57 vendors booked with two weeks to go. Arts and crafts will be the central focus and artists will be on-hand to showcase and sell their work. On Saturday, Aug. 3, festival gates open at 11 a.m. ET for the classic car show and a day-long concert. The car show, to be held inside the gates, along Miss Zola’s Drive, will award prizes in eight categories. Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf will host a Ducky Derby where kids can purchase a rubber duck to be dropped into the park’s lagoon. The owners of the rst ducks to make it across the water will receive prizes and have a chance at nabbing an iPad mini. The event will raise funds for the Sacred Heart Guild. The Kidz zone will give the young ones a place to work off some excess energy and enjoy games and crafts. Food vendors will be selling scallops which can also be purchased frozen at $35 for ve pound bags. Raf eld Fisheries provided the mollusks for the event since it is illegal to commercially harvest local scallops. The day’s music will be provided by Bowen and Bowman, Reed Waddle, King Cotton, The Sauce Boss, Cadillac Willy and the Kevin Jacobs Band. The festival will close on Sunday, Aug. 4 with events that include a Worship by the Bay, sponsored by the First United Methodist Church at 9 a.m. ET; a Brunch by the Bay at Sunset Coastal Grill at 10:30 a.m. ET; a performance by the band ThirtyThree at George Core Park at 1 p.m. ET; and nally a the nal leg of the Race to the Scallops with a kayak and paddleboard event starting at George Core Park. An event this big can’t hope to survive without the aid of volunteers and Pickett reported that there are still positions available for those who wish to help. She estimates that 100 volunteers are needed and responsibilities range from handing out wristbands at the gate, selling T-shirts, serving scallops, or operating the ever-popular beer tent. Though the summer weather wasn’t cooperative when it came to a planned music festival and some of the recent centennial celebration events, Pickett said that the Scallop Fest will go on as planned, rain or shine. She and O’Neil feel con dent about their plans for this year’s event and hope it will be one to remember. “Planning the festival was a daunting task, but I’ve enjoyed it immensely,” said Pickett. “I think we’ve created a great prototype for the future.” Those who wish to volunteer can call Chellsey O’Neil at 850-227-1223. Volunteers will receive a free Scallop Festival T-shirt.

The Sauce Boss is known for his creative and high-energy blues concerts where he simultaneously cooks a pot of gumbo on stage. At the end of the concert, it’s chow time for the audience. Four years ago, Wharton brought his brand of “swampy Florida blues” to the Port St. Joe Marina and he’ll soon make a valiant return. Despite the absence, Wharton made it clear that he’s no stranger to the Gulf. In his years as a solo artist he spent time playing up and down the venues of St. George Island and said that Cape San Blas is one of his favorite areas to visit. From the age of 14, Wharton had been playing music, but as legend goes, in early 1970, he wandered outside and found a 1930’s steel guitar in his yard and the instrument showed him the way of the blues. He bared his soul and started penning songs about harmony and brotherhood. “Blues is universal,” said Wharton. “The music lifts you up and that’s why I play it.” For a cook, who has a degree in English education, he likes that the music allows him to speak in simple terms and yet show complicated ideas. He calls blues music “real and authentic.” Hot sauce was merely a side interest for Wharton in the early 80s. Unhappy with what was available on the market, he’d attempted to make his own, always on the hunt for the perfect blend of heat and taste. It was after a friend gave him some Datil peppers from St. Augustine that he nally achieved hot sauce nirvana. He began growing the peppers and selling his concoction, which he dubbed, “Liquid Summer Hot Sauce.” As someone who was on stage night after night, he had the perfect place to sell it. It was on New Year’s Eve of 1990 that his two passions came together on stage. He wanted to prove to his concert audience how delicious his hot sauce was, so he cooked a pot of gumbo on stage and doused it with Liquid Summer. After seeing the reactions of his well-fed crowd, he realized what his show would become moving forward. “That’s the genius of serendipity,” said Wharton about the experience. Cooking gumbo while playing music isn’t a simple task, though Wharton admitted that over the years, By TIM CROFT 227-7827 | @PSJ_Star tcroft@star .com The Currys have chosen to take a summer vacation pastime and make it better. If, as Jimmy Curry said, the group can have some fun and not end up being “too poor,” well, all the better. The Currys hope to enter a recording studio in Charlottesville, VA sometime in the fall to lay down the tracks for their rst full-length album. They are hoping their fans and friends will join them in the studio by way of www.kickstarter.com, a website devoted to providing fundraising opportunities for independent artistic projects, whether lm, painting or, as with The Currys, music. The Currys hope to raise $12,000 by Aug. 13 to fund the recording of the album. Donations can be made via a variety of packages that offer in return a copy of the released album, the band’s eternal gratitude, t-shirts and other perks. “It has become a good way for a variety of independent artists to fund their projects,” Jimmy Curry said. “The basic idea is they are pre-ordering the album. “They are helping us record and ordering a copy of the album.” The Currys have been primarily a family affair. Jimmy and his older brother Tommy, both born and raised in Port St. Joe, began performing together around local clubs during summers off from college and careers. Separated by three years, Tommy was playing guitar and writing songs while in high school with Jimmy eventually picking up the bass. Jimmy began playing the guitar his freshman year at William and Mary and one summer ve years ago Tommy “reeled me in” to perform locally. The talked to the owners of Veranda’s in Apalachicola and got a gig and it went from there, performing at such area venues as Lookout Lounge, the Thirsty Goat, Haughty Heron and during the PoJo Music Fest. “We loved it,” Jimmy Curry said. “We had a great time, so much fun, and we come back each summer.” They will also perform at the upcoming Scallop Festival. A change came when their cousin Galen Curry joined the band. Their music became known for fabulous harmonies and an energetic and charismatic stage show, as Galen wrote on the group’s kickstarter page. The band has since added a rhythm section of mates they know in Charlottesville, which Jimmy said has a great music By Melanie Taylor Extension Agent II 4-H/Family & Consumer Sciences Campers often describe camp as a “happy and fun place”. The campers and the counselors who work with them are obviously happy at camp. They smile a lot. They look relaxed. There’s a lot of laughter. So many fun things happen at camp every day that it’s no surprise it’s such a happy place for kids. 4-H summer fun was had by all! From June 24-28, youth from Gulf County attended a veday residential camp at 4-H Camp Timpoochee in Niceville. The campers had a funlled week of kayaking, archery, air ri e, snorkeling, swimming, marine science, rocketry, crafts, singing, dancing, campres, and much more. While at camp the youth participated in many opportunities to expand their leadership skills, make new friends, and learn community living skills and other basic life skills, while away from the comforts of home. The Florida 4-H camping program strives to build youth’s life skills through outdoor adventure. Instilling a sense of wonder of the natural world, respecting wildlife and its habitat, and encouraging kids’ curiosity about the outdoors are major components of 4-H camping. However, camps aren’t just about nature. Science and technology, sports and leisure, teambuilding and healthy lifestyles are all part of today’s camping phenomenon.

Amateur radio license exams By Rachel Long Special to The Star Do you want to reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabe tes and even cancer? If so, the answer may be simpler than you think: get moving. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that adults get 150 minutes of exercise each week which translates to about 30 min utes, 5 days per week. The good news is that you don’t have to be train ing for a marathon to im prove your health. Just 30 minutes per day of a mod erate-intensity activity like walking can dramatically improve your health. Feel like you don’t have 30 min utes to dedicate to exercise? Try breaking-up your exer cise into shorter sessions. Try walking for 10 minutes, three times each day or for 15 minutes, twice daily. Just remember, making time to exercise is critical for your health. In the words of the Earl of Derby, “Those who do not nd time for exercise, sooner or later will have to nd time for illness.” If you would like to learn more about physical activ ity and exercise, including help getting started with an activity program, the MyGULFCare program can help.

For great health, get moving Special to The Star Mole crickets damage turf grass in several ways. They tunnel through the soil near the surface. This tunneling action loosens the soil so that the grass is often uprooted and dies due to desiccation of the root system. Both species of mole crickets damage grass roots causing thinning out of the turf and, eventually, completely bare soil. Mole crickets live in the soil and feed on plant roots. Their front legs are short and stout well adapted for tunneling. Their velvety skin is light brown, and the adults, which reach a length of about oneand-a-half inches, have prominent wings folded over their backs. Each spring, mole crickets lay eggs in the soil. The nymphs, which hatch in about two weeks, look like the adults, except they’re smaller and lack fully developed wings. These nymphs mature very gradually, reaching adulthood the following spring. Thus, there is only one generation per year. Although mole crickets live mostly below ground, the adults are readily attracted to lights especially in the spring, and throughout the summer. At these times, they’re commonly found under street lamps, electric signs, and similar illumination. Mole crickets are most active at night, especially after a rain or irrigation, and when the temperature is about 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Under these conditions, they make burrows in the upper inch or two of the soil. Occasionally, they’ll partially emerge to gather bits of food. These surface burrows, which range from about one/eight to three/quarters of an inch in diameter, look like miniature mole runs. This burrowing loosens the soil, causing plants to dry out. However, the most serious damage is caused by the cricket feeding on the roots of lawn grass. Inspect for mole crickets soap flush is an effective method for surveying mole cricket populations, especially in the late spring and early summer when the crickets are small and tunneling activity is not readily evident. Mix 1.5 fluid ounces of liquid dishwashing soap in two gallons of water and apply with a sprinkling can to four square feet of turf in several areas. If an average of two to four mole crickets appears on the surface within three minutes, then a treatment is probably needed. To insure even pesticide coverage, it’s best to treat no more than 500 square feet at a time. Mark off the area to be covered, and apply half the recommended amount evenly, back and forth in one direction. Then, turn at right angles and apply the rest. After spraying, irrigate for about 60 minutes. Do not water after applying baits. Baits are most effective when the fastgrowing nymphs need a lot of food from late June through September. The sooner baits are applied after damage is noticed, the more effective they’ll be. Baits may be applied by hand, but be sure to wear rubber gloves. For sprays, a garden hose attachment applicator will do the job, one that requires 15 to 2gallons of water passing, through the hose to empty a quart jar, or you can use a pressurized pump-up sprayer, make sure water/chemical ration are correct and the sprayer has been calibrated. Regardless of whether you use a spray or bait, a second application in two weeks will provide better control. For specific pesticide recommendation, check with your garden center, or Gulf County Extension Service @ 639-3200 or visit our website: http://gulf.ifas. ufl.edu or www.http:// edis.ifas.ufl.edu and see Publication EENY 235.

Local The Star| B3 Thursday, July 18, 2013 SAUCE from page B1 things have gotten easier. His rst shows with the gumbo pot at his side also included the prep of the meal, though he quickly learned that dicing onions while trying to play blues licks wasnt a natural t. He now does all his prep in advance. The rst time I made gumbo on stage, I basically had a bag of groceries with me, he laughed. It was a total mess. Wharton now has a regimen that he practices prior to each show to en sure that all ingredients are ready and everything is in its place. While he feels his system is more efcient now, it wasnt without grow ing pains. He said, A few times, I had to take breaks during the show so that I could go to the store! Wharton chose gumbo as his stage dish for the same reason he enjoys blues mu sic: it brings people togeth er. The traditional Creole dish is a combination of African American, Native American, Spanish and even German culinary inuences. Gumbo is a melt ing potliterally! said Wharton. As people, were all different, but when we sit at the table together, we make some thing good. Wharton has served over 190,000 bowls of gum bo in the last 24 years and doesnt show any signs of slowing down. Recent gigs have taken him to North Carolina and Wash ington DC and in the past hes traveled extensively across the United States and Canada. His gumbo has taken him many places he nev er imagined, including Roman amphitheaters and Napoleonic opera houses in France. Ive played every wherefrom France, to Ireland, to a show in a Laundromat in Tallahas see, said Wharton. Where some musi cians might use their days off on tour to get a little bit of rest and relax ation, Wharton visits area homeless shelters and performs for free while still spoonin up his trade mark meal. Nine years ago, he started the non-prot or ganization Planet Gumbo to raise awareness about homelessness, feed the needy and give hope and sustenance through music and the message of gumbo. Its what I do to put en ergy back into the commu nity, said Wharton. Some people cant come to the shows, so I go to them. For Gulf County resi dents who attend the Sauce Bosss performance at the Scallop Fest, Wharton promises to deliver a rock ing show. Get ready for some high-energy blues, he warned. It will be up beatthis isnt cryin into your beer music! The Sauce Boss will take the stage at 5 p.m. ET on Saturday, Aug. 3 at George Core Park. Tickets are $5 for the event.

They have also played at venues in New York City they will play at a small club in the city next month Gainesville, Nashville and Virginia. But other than summer, the band members went their separate ways. Galen spent time in Aus tin, Texas trying to hone his craft while Jimmy was working as a ski instructor in Utah and Tommy taught middle school science and math in Connecticut. In time, Galen and Jim my moved to Charlottes ville and began lobbying Tommy. We decided that we were going to commit more to music full-time, Jimmy said. Hopefully, we will have a recording and go out sometime in the spring to support it. We all have enjoyed playing music and under stand and have no problem with holding down other jobs to pay the bills. It is fun and rewarding. Its the most fun job you can have, I think. The record will include all original songs. Jimmy, Tommy and Ga len, due to the distance in their lives, generally write individually and show the others the song once suitably crafted by the songwriter. Input, Jimmy said, can be taken or left on the table, and from there it is a ques tion of lling in the blanks, adding harmonies, full or chestration, etc. (Songwriting) is a lot of fun, Jimmy said. It is very rewarding and enjoy able to do. It kind of comes in ashes. Some take a long time to complete, oth ers might come in an hour. Singer/songwriters, that whole genre had a big inuence on us. We lis tened to a lot of Bob Dylan and Neil Young growing up because that is who our parents (Drs. Betty and Tom Curry) listened to. There are contemporary groups that play the same kind of music. Inuences that can be heard in The Currys music include current popular groups such as Mumford & Sons and the Dropkick Murphys. Jimmy and Galen even tually reeled in Tommy to make a go of music fulltime. They will be based out of Charlottesville af ter their New York City gig and hope they nd the monetary support to be in the studio in September. For now we are satis ed with making music a full-time thing, Jimmy Curry said. Its not really an end game for anybody who understands how things work. We just hope to have some fun, get our music out and maybe not be too poor while we are doing it.

Com missioner Smiley received the designation along with 13 other county commis sioners during an awards ceremony held at the FAC Annual Conference in Hill sborough County, FL. “All of these courses required to complete this certication were worth the time and effort to com plete. The knowledge re ceived on how effective government operates, can assist new commissioners in their career,” Smiley said. Launched by FAC in 2006, the Advanced Coun ty Commissioner (ACC) education program, “The Florida Forum for County Leaders,” is an advanced leadership program de signed for graduates of the Certied County Commis sioners (CCC) program. This year, the program has been held in Alachua Coun ty and saw 14 commission ers graduate in June with a total of 132 graduating since the inception of the program in 2006. “This certication al lows our citizen electorate to become experts in coun ty government improving their communities,” said FAC Executive Director Chris Holley. “Through FAC’s education programs we are able to teach com missioners how to advance their policies through the complexities of govern ment bureaucracies.” The ACC program is organized as a series of three seminars, with 27 hours of course work. The course content focuses on leading within Florida’s counties. Participating Commissioners must com mit to fully participate in all three seminars in order to graduate. Seminars in clude: Leadership in these Turbulent and Transforma tive Times; Leading Your Communities During Tur bulent Times; and, Under standing and Working with Stakeholders and County Makers. The University of Florida/IFAS Extension has sponsored this pro gram for the last ve years in Alachua County. For more information about the ACC program and courses, visit the FAC web site at www.-coun ties.com. For 80 years, the Flori da Association of Counties (FAC) has represented the diverse interests of Florida’s counties, em phasizing the importance of protecting home rule – the concept that govern ment closest to the people governs best. The Florida Association of Counties helps counties effectively serve and represent Flo ridians by strengthening and preserving county home rule through ad vocacy, education and collaboration.

B6City accepts BP settlementCommission sets lighthouse relocation timelineBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@star .com The budget season began for Port St. Joe city commissioners on Tuesday, and there was a bonus on the ledger. Commissioners opened the process for crafting next scal years budget during a workshop, and among the items on the revenue side was more than half a million dollars from BP. Several meetings ago, commissioners approved attorneys to reach a nal number, and the oil giants nal compensation to the city for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill totaled $675,000 to settle all outstanding city claims. After attorneys fees and other costs, the city netted $539,000, which city manager Jim Anderson said sits in a segregated account. And commissioners and staff came armed with a wish list of projects that are beyond the general fund budget but will serve as suggestions for spending the money. That wish list includes improvements to the Centennial Building, the 10th Street ball elds, the demolition and development of the old Gulf Pines Hospital site and, maybe most importantly, funding re nance charges on a loan with Regions Bank. Commissioners are examining ways to re nance that loan, which has a balloon payment in 2015, in order to maintain the lowest interest rate possible on long-term debt city manager Jim Anderson noted is approaching $20 million. Looming on the horizon, commissioners are waiting on the bidding for relocation of the Cape San Blas Lighthouse into the city. Clay Smallwood with Preble Rish Engineers mapped out the timeline for commissioners, as soil borings and testing of the new site have been completed. The city also discussed and will take over administration of a grant secured by the Port St. Joe Redevelopment Agency (PSJRA) that will underwrite the foundation construction for See PSJ CITY A3 BOCC sends garbage issue to votersBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com Having looked at options for addressing the costs of solid waste collection in the county for several months, the Board of County Commissioners decided Monday to let the voters decide on a direction. During a special meeting, commissioners Commissioner Warren Yeager was absent approved a referendum on a one cent sales tax to fund mandatory garbage collection in county. The referendum, commissioners decided, would be held at the next general election in the fall of 2014. The county, administrator Don Butler said, should enter into discussions immediately with each municipality to determine their course of action. The cities of Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka would collect a share of the one cent sales tax. However, whether they followed the countys lead in devoting those funds to rid the county of garbage bills remains to be seen It would be nice for the city of Port St. Port foreclosure hearing this weekBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com A circuit court hearing on foreclosure proceedings against the Port of Port St. Joe by Capital City Bank was scheduled to be held Wednesday. The hearing was scheduled after this newspaper went to print (go to www.star com for any updates) but Port Authority attorney Tom Gibson has indicated he would be surprised if Circuit Court Judge Shonna Gay Young makes an immediate decision on the competing motions for summary judgment. With both sides seeking summary judgment, there are no legal facts in dispute, Gibson said. The bank is seeking foreclosure on a mortgage of more than $4 million on land that the Port Authority transformed into a barge terminal bulkhead with uplands site. The so-called Parcel B sits below the Tapper Bridge across the Intracoastal Waterway from the old Arizona Chemical site. The Port Authority has not made payments on the principal for several years. See GARBAGE A5 See PORT A5By WES LOCHER229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@starfl.com Next weekend marks the start of the annual Scallop Festival in Port St. Joe and this years festivities will see two weekends worth of activities where an expected 8,000 attendees will celebrate Port St. Joes favorite mollusk. Though the Scallop Festival is in its 17th year, the faces behind the event are new. Chamber Director Paula Pickett was instrumental in gathering the music and volunteers for the 2013 celebration, but it was chamber newcomer Chellsey ONeil who coordinated the layout of the event. ONeil recently graduated from Florida State University with a degree in event management and worked to create an organized festival that she hopes will be consistent from year to year. For someone who up until now had focused on coordinating weddings, ONeil welcomed the challenge of tackling Port St. Joes largest event. It really opened up a door for me to learn on a big scale, she said. Its been a good experience. This years layout will condense vendors, music and seating to create an atmosphere that will allow attendees to celebrate together rather than be widely spread out. In addition, Pickett and ONeil have also worked to qualify vendors, ensuring booths arent repetitive and they are selling products suitable to the festival. Other updates for this years fest will include a streamline of the registration process for vendors, a green room for participating musicians, an on-site information and rst-aid tent, a VIP tent for event sponsors, and the amount of scallop cooks will be increased to shorten lines for Scallop festival receives makeover See SCALLOP A8A kinship renewed through DAWGS programBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com Julia Cunningham thought she was nished with dogs after losing her beloved white lab Sandman over the winter. Vince Bishop had never experienced ownership of a dog he could call his own. That the couple would come to adopt a dog from the 27th graduating class of the DAWGS in Prison program serves as an example of what makes the program a success. After losing Sandman, Cunningham said she was nished with dogs, at least for the time being. I had just lost the love my life, my Sandman, Cunningham said. I wasnt ready. But neighbor Sandi Christy, the co-director of DAWGS (Developing Adoptable dogs with Good Sociability) in Prison, asked if Cunningham and Bishop could serve as foster parents for 10 days for a dog about to enter the program. Maybe she sensed something, I dont know, Cunningham laughed.

LocalA2 | The Star Thursday, July 18, 2013 Maybe she was playing with me. Bishop is a longtime supporter of DAWGS, donating the programs website and website updates through his company Server Solutions. Cunningham is a longtime supporter of the St. Joseph Bay Humane Society. The dog, whose name is now Barley in recognition of Bishops favorite beverage, came to live with the couple as foster parents pending training and it didnt take long before Cunningham was smitten. The dog, a lab/ spaniel mix, reminded Cunningham of Sandman and Maggie, a beagle breed owned by Cunningham that had also passed in recent years. Hes perfect, Cunningham said. He is such a blend of Sandman and Maggie. The dog nds you; thats what happens. You dont nd the dog, the dog nds you. As for Bishop, He fell in love with it, Cunningham said. There were, of course, some issues with Barley, another dog in the long line of canine that have navigated the DAWGS program after being raised in less than ideal circumstances. While dogs are screened by the St. Joseph Bay Humane Society for temperament, health and ability to be trained, they share one thing: they are alone and facing an uncertain future before entering the eight weeks of training in the DAWGS program. Barley was showing signs of experiencing separation anxiety while alone at the couples home and would nip the hands that fed and pet him. But 10 days after dropping Barley off at the Gulf Forestry Camp where the training with inmate teams takes place, Cunningham said the changes were dramatic. She and Bishop brought Barley home for a weekend, still serving as foster parents to Barley. He was a totally different dog, Cunningham said. He is very smart and he was just so much better. During the eight weeks of training, Christys primary task, one she works tirelessly at, is to match dogs with potential forever homes and families. The fit must be right and Christy and her co-director Judy Miick, along with Humane Society director Melody Townsend, expend considerable time and energy to making the perfect match. To date, 293 dogs have been trained and adopted into new homes. The program has experienced just one instance in which the match did not find traction. As Christy reviewed the applications for Barley, none seemed to fit all the proper parameters. Meanwhile Cunningham and Bishop were becoming more attached, less foster and more forever parents. I finally told Vince we really should make up our mind, Cunningham said with a laugh. Now he is graduated and he is just the perfect part of the family. Barley, Cunningham said, is about two years old and has so much energy. And he carries daily reminders for Cunningham of best friends lost and new friends found. She sees Sandman in the way Barley lays at her feet, for instance. As he picks at his food, she sees Maggie. The things he does are so much like a blend of those two dogs it is amazing, Cunningham said. The DAWGS in Prison program has not only graduated nearly 300 dogs in just over four years, it has seen nearly the same number of inmates who must apply, interview and maintain rigorous standards to be part of the program graduate. The inmates move up the chain from caretaker to handler to trainer to lead trainer, honing skills that a number have used once out behind bars to become productive in life. One inmate, behind bars for half his 40 years before being accepted into the DAWGS program, works with animals in the Pacific Northwest. Another found work with an animal shelter in Central Florida. They learn during those eight weeks almost as much as the dogs. They learn the little steps, Cunningham said. They are learning patience, compassion, discipline. We did work with the inmates and they seemed to really care about the dogs and worked great with the dogs. They become as much success stories as the DAWGS graduate trained to be diabetic alert dog that saved his owners life. Or the dog trained to be a companion for an autistic child, helping that child better cope with his challenges. There are so many things good things about that program, Cunningham said. Everything is right with that program. In addition to Cunningham and Bishop, one couple at the June 26 graduation was adopting their second graduate from DAWGS. Parker, named the Top Dog in the class, is in New Jersey with a family of two young boys. Because of strict spay/ neuter laws in swaths of the Northeast, the demand for adoptable dogs is high. Since its inception the DAWGS program has sent dozens of dogs to the Northeast corridor, Christy said. The most recent graduates were sent to six states: Alabama, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Florida, Christy said. With graduation of one class comes the arrival of another, an eight-dog class that will graduate Aug. 21.

The turtle, affectionately named Mayday, was taken to Gulf World in Panama City, where it was diagnosed with pneumonia and had abscesses on its shell due to growth and debris in the water. Mayday underwent rehabilitation for two months and on Wednesday, was nally returned to sea. Stephanie Nagle, an Education Coordinator with Gulf World Marine Institute oversaw the process of getting Mayday back in the water. A crowd of more than 50 spectators also lined the beach in Beacon Hill. Nagle stressed the importance of returning the turtles close to where they nd them. We dont want to release them too far off the beaten path, she said. Mayday is believed to be between 10-12 years in age, which makes her a juvenile. Most sea turtles dont reach maturity until they are over 20 and most live somewhere between 60-80 years. Nagle said, Hes just a baby. In addition to beachvisiting families and the media, members of the St. Andrews Turtle Watch out of Bay County were onhand to encourage Mayday in his return to the Gulf. After a quick rest in the sand, Mayday felt the water and quickly shufed his way head-rst into the surf. Those on shore cheered and waved goodbye. Kids kept their eyes on the turtle for as long as they could and sent words of encouragement with him. For Nagle, seeing an event like this reminded of her of why shed dedicated more than two years to rescuing marine mammals across the Gulf. Working with sea animals has been a long dream of mine, she said. Im very excited to be a part of this. Gulf World Marine Institute is a non-prot organization and part of the Southeast Marine Mammal Stranding Network and the Sea Turtle Stranding and Salvage Network. The group works with turtles and dolphins that need rescue rehabilitation or release and is the only long-term marine mammal rehabilitation facility in Northern Florida. Over the years, its team has come to the aid of thousands of sick or debilitated stranded marine animals.

LocalThe Star| A3Thursday, July 18, 2013 the lighthouse once moved. The city will advertise for bids for the project moving the lighthouse, keepers quarters and oil house from their current location on Air Force land on Cape San Blas to a site next to George Core Park from Aug. 1-8. A pre-bid conference will be Aug. 15 with the awarding of the final day for accepting bids Aug. 29. The hope, Smallwood said, is to have a recommendation for award at the Sept. 1 commission meeting. We want to get it done as soon as we can, Mayor Mel Magidson said. The city continues to wait on an actual deed for the structures from the federal government. The bids, Smallwood said, will provide the template for how the structures will be moved various scenarios have been offered informally, from moving overland to using a barge or even helicopter. The bids also will offer a window into a definitive price for the project, which has been the subject of much public debate. The city has a $325,000 historic preservation grant from the city and some $40,000 raised by the St. Joseph Historical Society. The PSJRA also has placed in its budget some funding for the lighthouse project, though the PSJRA board has yet to formally convey any of the funds to the city. The city submitted a request for more than $900,000 for the relocation to the county RESTORE Act committee, but the mayor has said during past meetings that he has received informal estimates between $200,000 and $250,000.Tentative millage rateFor the sixth consecutive year, commissioners adopted a planning tentative millage with full intent of coming down as close to the current millage as possible. By law, taxing authorities have 30 days, or until Aug. 1, to provide the property appraiser and Florida Department of Revenue a proposed millage rate. That is the rate showing up on Truth in Millage (TRIM) notices going out to property owners. However, while crafting the budget, the taxing authority may still move down on its millage; but it is locked in from going any higher. The city adopted an increase of one mill a mill equals $1 for every $1,000 in assessed taxable property value but commissioners emphasized they had little intention of levying that mill. We know we are going to come down, Magidson said. Weve consciously left taxes and millage the same in recent years because water rates were going up. We didnt want to hit people twice. Water and sewer rates are set to rise again in the fall for the third-straight year. The citys current millage of 3.5914 is the lowest in the county. The city also realized the only increase in value to its mill this year, with an increase of $10,021 to the general fund.Water, waterCommissioners, again expressing frustration with the slow pace of information on a water study from water plant designer CDM Smith, entertained several recommendations for addressing water issues short and long term. Plant manager Larry McLamma said the city is coming up on some of its most important annual water testing for the state and the lack of unidirectional maintenance flushing since early in the year is an issue. The flushing was ceased for the CDM water study, but with the study well behind schedule an initial report expected months ago remains at least a week away, Smallwood said McLamma emphasized the need to resume flushing, particularly as water complaints have increased recently. Smallwood said he would talk to David Kozan of CDM Smith about the flushing and indicated he did not see a major problem with resuming the flushing. Commissioner Rex Buzzett said he had been in conversations with staff at the Northwest Florida Water Management District about the viability of securing a grant to run new pipe the 17-mile length of the freshwater canal to bring water directly from the Chipola River Pump Station to the water plant. The clarity of the water in the canal has been an issue since the plant opened. Mowing along the canal is a constant need, and tree sap and other contaminants fall into the water on the way to the plant. By piping the water and making improvements to the pump station, the city could be in position to be the regional water supplier the NWFWMD hopes the city to be, once it solves the discoloration issue, Buzzett suggested Buzzett noted the water management district has funds in reserve it has been instructed by state legislators to expend on water projects throughout the region. Finally, Smallwood said the USDA had moved paperwork ahead on the sidewalk project for MLK Boulevard, approval of which has held up the water and sewer line replacement for streets in the neighborhood of North Port St. Joe.

I love its abundance of blessings, and the freedoms it offers to worship my God and be part of an effort to publicize His original message to mankind in a manner unmatched and unwanted in most countries. YOUTUBE recently posted a clip titled Americans Dont Know WHY We Celebrate the 4th of July or WHAT COUNTRY We Declared Independence From! Really? Fifth-grade geography use to teach this. What happened? America has forgotten the God that gave the nation its blessed location, its freedom, and the natural bene ts, which the people receive. The very founding document that is the touchstone of Americas nationhood acknowledges the Eternal God in its opening and closing paragraphs, and twice in the body of that document. The actual words and phrases used in these instances are Natures God, Creator, Supreme Judge of the world and Divine Providence. Patrick Henrys liberty speech of March 23, 1775, which spurred those assembled to support the Revolutionary War, sought to stir up the members of the governing House to seek the truth and ful ll the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country, declaring his loyalty toward the Majesty of heaven. George Washington declared in his inaugural speech it would be peculiarly improper to omit in this rst of cial act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules the universe that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States. No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand, which conducts the affairs of men, more than those of the United States. This nation of America was founded on a vision that it was Gods will, and that the nation should act to please Him. Indeed, with its judiciary and too many in its legislative bodies now not only outingvia the decisions they are imposing on the nationbut deliberately ying in the face of Gods irreversible laws governing humankind, it would seem that the agenda of the Obama radicals to trash the nations Constitution is well advanced. To declare, as Gods very Word does, that He will curse a nation which He once so richly endowed with blessings when they throw those blessings back in His face and deny Him as their benefactor, tends today to make one a laughing stock. It will get you quickly labeled as eccentric, and the establishment you represent a crazy sect. So what? Thats exactly how the world viewed Jesus Christ and His Church long ago. Check the records of the insurance industry today, check the weather records, and check the number, size, and extent of catastrophe that is increasingly affecting the United States, and you are left with an undeniable fact. The incidence of such phenomena is not only increasing, but also the level of catastrophe and the cost to the nation is breaking all records. Its a simple matter of cause and effect. Submit to the law of God and He will bless you. Break the law consistently without repentance and it will break you (Deuteronomy 30:19-20). I weep for the nation. I weep for its people, for I know the end result of the radicals agenda. It is written large and clear for all to see in the very Word of God for which Americas Founding Fathers had so much respect, unlike so many in the nations current administration who seem to be so intent on trashing that very Word with their every act. Even so, the signs are that the window of time left to those who courageously continue Reality is we are so lostPage 4 Thursday, July 18, 2013It is almost certain that you have seen the phrase, Veni, Vidi, Vici. The phrase means, I came, I saw, I conquered. Julius Caesar meant it when he sent this message back to the patrician Senate in 47 BC. He was basically saying exactly what it sounds like and saying it with more than a wee bit of arrogance. Caesar was brief and to the point and still managed to emphasize his rudeness/ arrogance to the Senate. It was also meant to say, Not only did I do it, but I did it quick. Whether it is in battle or on a eld in front of thousands of screaming fans, we often are inspired by the words of military leaders, coaches and athletes. Folks collect these quotes and spit them out at opportune times before, during and after battles, personal trials, sporting events and fraternity parties that have gotten out of hand. Im not that coach. After coaching youth baseball teams for over 30 years, I have come to the realization that as much as I love the game of baseball, Im not going to be the kind of coach to quote Knute Rockne, Vince Lombardi or even Bear Bryant. I might quote Larry Bird, the famous Boston Celtic. He once noted that to be great, First master the fundamentals. However, I would write it out so my baseball team could see it this way, First master the FUNdamentals. Admittedly, over the years I have changed. I make more strategic errors, poor decisions and outright stupid coaching mistakes than I did when I coached my rst team at 17 years-old. Ive become more of a spectator with a better seat inside the fence. One of the teams I coach is a more competitive team traveling on weekends within and sometimes outside the state to play other similar teams. The chemistry of this particular team seems to lend well to my underlying goal of fun and camaraderie. On a recent Sunday, we were playing our third game in the blistering heat. One umpire passed out, a couple of players were suffering from minor wounds and all of the guys were worn out. We generally carry ten players and bat the entire lineup, taking turns with one fellow sitting on the bench. With my back to the bench, I heard the little brother of one of players talking. He is around 11 years-old and quite a baseball player himself. He enjoys sitting in the dugout with us; I enjoy having him there. Eavesdropping, not wanting to get caught, I couldnt tell exactly who the boy was addressing. The little boy noted to one of the guys on the bench or to his parents, We are losing, they act like they are winning, they sure are having a good time to be losing. Sure enough, the team was laughing, poking fun at each other and having a good time. They had played well for the most part and seemed to have mastered the FUNdamentals. Im sure I had a grin on my face, because it hurt; my lips had burnt from being in the sun all day. There are many schools of thought on kids playing travel baseball, soccer, lacrosse and every other sport folks can make a dollar off of parents dreams of college scholarships and posh summer homes to retire to after their kids make the big leagues. Loving sports and mathematics, I have looked at the numbers and probabilities for years, in terms of a boy getting to play big league baseball. After looking at the numbers, I realize there will always be a lot of folks who will still spend thousands on the dream of their son or daughter being a professional athlete. Dreaming is a good thing, but lets take a look at it from a numbers perspective. Im relatively con dent in my calculations. We rst have to start with 1000 high school seniors playing baseball. So this is not the general public, you have to have played at least at the high school level. Of those 1000 high school seniors, roughly 5.6% will go on to play college baseball. Fair enough, that means we have 56 boys playing college baseball. Before you get your hopes up for a full ride baseball scholarship, understand that a typical college baseball team has about 11 scholarships to divide among 35 or more baseball players. A typical baseball scholarship is around 30%. Back to the 56 fellows who make it to a college roster; roughly 10.5% of those will be drafted to play in the minor league system of a professional baseball team. To make it easy, lets round it up to 6 guys who get paid to play baseball out of the original 1000. A 10% chance of making it from the minor leagues to a big league ball club is very generous. 10% of 6 fellows is of course sixtenths of one player. Not meaning he is short, just that his chances are quite small. You could add in those high school players who get drafted to play minor league baseball right of high school and maybe get up to almost a full person out of the original 1000 boys playing high school baseball. Fewer than half of the rookies in professional baseball make it to ve years. The big money (free agency) starts at 6 years. Note here that this is the same way the warranty on your car or washing machine works. However, if you do play 43 games of professional baseball, you are eligible for a pension of around $35,000 per year. This is not enough to help your parents buy their posh summer home, or live comfortably on for that matter. Im not saying that you should invest your money in preparing for college entrance tests, but you should kind of see my point. (Im not saying you shouldnt invest in preparing your child for college entrance exams either.) Just my luck! Ive been trying to get to Los Angeles ever since I was knee high to a grasshopper. I wanted to see the rocks the Lone Ranger rode through at the start of every television show. I wanted to ride by the Republic Studios where all those great westerns were made. I wanted to pet the MGM lion. I wanted to drive down Wilshire Boulevard and pretend I was Sergeant Joe Friday working homicide out of day watch searching for just the facts, maam. I nally make it ... on the exact same day that every person in America that owns an automobile decided to drive into the famed City of Angles! People, Im on an eight lane freeway that is completely stopped. I didnt see any smoke up ahead. Tom Cruise wasnt lming a chase scene as far as I could tell. There was no turned over tanker truck spewing forth toxic waste. I could believe two or three lanes on a busy day; or four lanes if there was major construction; or maybe six lanes on a Friday afternoon. But eight lanes? And none of them moving! What kind of place is this? Id purposely chosen mid-morning on Monday to avoid any rush. I wondered how quiet it must be in Denver, Chicago and Los Vegas with no cars on their streets. I went to studying the drivers around me. Maybe I could spot Bruce Willis or Yvonne DeCarlo. We did inch by the John Wayne Airport. That didnt seem right to me. You ought to name a horse ranch after the Duke; or a high mesa overlooking the town; or even an army base would be acceptable ... but I dont remember many John Wayne airport movies. On Tuesday afternoon we made it to Sunset Boulevard and started towards downtown. I just thought Id been in some traf c! Whew, you talk about a sh out of water. And I cant believe how those drivers blow their horns at you. We passed Rodeo Drive without even glancing over. The last thing on earth I needed was a three hundred dollar pair of sequined jeans. We drove right through the middle of Beverly Hills. I couldnt see one house for all the tall hedges and high stone fences. And when I found out the tour of the stars homes didnt include where Randolph Scott used to live, I wasnt interested. I did ask the girl selling the tickets if she could kindly point out the Jed Clampett mansion but that didnt even get a icker out of her. She had a script in her hand and she was sticking to it. She allowed that she wasnt going to be working on this tour much longer. Her acting career was just about to take off. She had a boyfriend who had a cousin who knew a guy that once worked for Steven Spielberg. That Sunset Boulevard goes on for a while! I had Cathy looking out for a Cracker Barrel. There is nothing that will make you hungrier than sitting in stalled traf c all day. Sweet tea is more elusive out here than Cracker Barrels. You can get it hot. You can get it cold without sugar. You can get it with ginger and raspberry. You probably could get it with fruits and nuts ... but Cathy told me not to write that down. You just cant get it like your mother used to make it! We did drive by a place named The Smokehouse Restaurant, Video Store and Laundry Mat but we didnt see it until it was too late. And turning around wasnt an option! Those folks must have moved here from Tennessee, or Alabama. They would have at least heard of sweet tea! Cathy spotted a Chickl-A and I crossed over two lanes and made what probably was an unlawful turn into an all night discotheque parking lot. We ran back a block and a half to get a chicken salad sandwich and some waf e fries. The nice cashier told us how to get to the Hollywood sign and also let us know right quick that she wouldnt be taking chicken orders much longer. She gave us her name twice and told us to remember it. Her ex mother-in-law was dating a guy whose sister was formerly married to an executive at Orion Pictures. I thought about asking for a job at the discotheque. Thats how much I did not want to get back into that car! Apparently Sgt. Friday and Of cer Gannon lmed there street scenes in a back lot somewhere. I did some serious soul searching and hard life pondering looking up at that big Hollywood sign spread ostentatiously across the hill side. I considered cool and suave versus hick and naive. I grew up in a small West Tennessee town. We were not chic by any stretch of the imagination. We couldnt even spell hip. We were about as plain and country as we could get. No airs. No pretense. No highfalutin ideas. But we didnt have to put a giant, lighted sign up on the hill to remind us where we lived.

We see attempts to prohibit the preaching of biblical truths on gender roles and the sanctity of life in the womb; moves to restrict the right of the people to bear arms; the reversal of the principle that powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people. And as the document states, The Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776, was in reaction to the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these statesreaction to a power that was taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments. Is that not what America is witnessing being imposed on it by those radical elites resident in Washington today? Ed McAteer is a resident of Port St. Joe McATEER from page A4In my opinion, I have come to the conclusion that baseball is NOT a numbers game, it is a FUN game. Let it be that. You can be competitive and have a good time. Therefore Caesar, I say, Veni, Vidi, Amuzis, or I came, I saw, I had fun. More than likely, I butchered the Latin, but it is brief, from the heart and said with more than a wee bit of arrogance. Im sorry Coach Bryant and Coach Lombardi. Coach Rockne, I think Ill just listen to the little boy on the bench and smile, even though it hurts my mouth. Find more stories at www.CranksMyTractor. com. CRANKS from page A4 The Port Authority is countering with a motion for summary judgment based the contention that the Port Authority was prohibited by law from mortgaging public property in the rst place without a public referendum. The outcome could also impact the Board of County Commissioners pursuit of additional collateralization for a $199,000 loan made last year to the Port Authority. There have been recent discussions with the bank about deeding the property to the bank while the bank would allow the port to proceed with its operations and providing a right of rst refusal to the Port Authority should another prospective buyer emerge. Gibson indicated those discussions have zzled as the hearing approaches. The Port Authority board has been disinclined to act on any proposal involving Parcel B or its collateralization until after the hearing. While Parcel B is an important component to the port master planning area, port director Tommy Pitts noted that the focus for the port in developing for the future is the shipping channel and lands in port and St. Joe Company hands open for deepwater shipping. The Port Authority and St. Joe Company entered into a collaborative agreement last year on development of the port. With two Letters of Intent entered into by St. Joe with energy companies, the port stands to see more than 1 million metric tons of wood pellets shipped through the Port of Port St. Joe within two to ve years. But those LOIs are contingent on dredging the shipping channel to authorized depth. Pitts said he, port ofcials and ofcials with St. Joe recently met with the staff of Congressman Steve Southerland (R-Panama City) and a legislative liaison from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to get a better understanding of the process of accomplishing the dredging. The Corps will ultimately perform the dredging. The Port Authority and St. Joe are exploring the quickest and most efcient path to the Corps and dredging, specically securing funding and permitting. It was a lot of information we had already heard and there are still more questions, Pitts said. Pitts said it remained unclear if on the permitting side the Port Authority would need to undertake an Environmental Impact Statement or the less time-consuming and less expensive Environmental Assessment. There was also a question about reauthorization given the last time the shipping channel was dredged 1980 and Pitts said the dredging would be more expensive because of the time lapse and volume of spoil material. St. Joe has indicated a willingness to consider providing company-owned lands for spoil sites an important hurdle and it remains a potential that some dredged material be suitable for beach nourishment. Pitts also noted that the two LOIs would meet the tonnage threshold requirements for the Corps to step in and dredge. Another arrow in the ports quiver is also that maintenance dredging, once done, would only need to be repeated every eight to 10 years as opposed to many ports that require such dredging on an annual or biannual basis, Pitts said. I am optimistic about getting certication, said Port Authority board chairman Leonard Costin. It is the same problem we have had. We have an ambitious objective of getting the dredging done in two years. The Port Authority board last week approved Hatch Mott McDonald as the engineering rm that will undertake the work required for permitting. We can not proceed with task specics (in order to assess the costs) until we receive clarication on the direction we will go, Pitts said.Operational fundsAnother Port Authority meeting was spent discussing the dire revenue situation for the port as the new scal year dawns at the end of September. Come the new scal year, the Port of Port St. Joe will operate on a barebones budget with no funding for the port director position beyond the $1 per month Pitts is currently paid. Further ofce presence would be from one contract employee working part-time. Costin said the Port Authority would make it through the current scal year and he has looked at a variety of sources for funding to no avail. We need a break, said board member Eugene Rafeld. We need a big bone sent to this county. It has not been for lack of effort. Costin proposed a public fundraising campaign he was willing to pledge $500 from his business last week which he would encourage others to match to provide operational dollars for the port in the short-term. We have to keep this going, Costin said. We can not stop it. This is the salvation for the community and the region. I am taking this as a serious challenge. Costin said he wanted to see community support, which might also serve as further ammunition as the Port Authority and St. Joe lobby for funding for dredging and improvements to the AN Railway. Rafeld suggested the board table the concept until after this weeks hearing and board member Johanna White said they should have a marketing plan in place for the effort. We need to be able to lay our cards on the table for the community, Rafeld said. Board member Patrick Jones said the idea should be up for detailed discussion at the next Port Authority meeting. We need to do everything we can, Jones said. Joe and the city of Wewahitchka to be under the same umbrella as the county, said Commissioner Ward McDaniel. The hope, Butler said after the meeting, would be for the cities to join the county as waste pickup service contracts expire over the next year which would provide a larger bidding base to aid in bringing overall prices down. We denitely should put the contract out for bid whether voters approve (the referendum) or not, said Commissioner Carmen McLemore. The motion on the referendum came after Butler had laid out the countys options for addressing garbage collection. Two of those options included moving to mandatory garbage pickup in unincorporated areas. Butler said three area counties have such ordinances, Calhoun, Liberty and Wakulla. He noted that Calhoun had a soft ordinance in which residents volunteer to be on garbage pickup. But by having the ordinance, code enforcement has the ability to step in should garbage become an issue on a property. In Liberty, some customers are billed monthly and others quarterly while in Wakulla the annual garbage bill was added onto property tax notices. To add the bill to the property tax Truth in Millage (TRIM) statements would require the county to complete a Solid Waste Assessment Study to determine who would or would not be excluded and what rates would be paid. That study must be completed, at a cost of over $43,000, by the Dec. 31 for the county to levy the bill on TRIM notices next year. Another con in that scenario, Butler noted, is that the garbage bill in some cases might be higher than the property tax bill. There are 2,512 customers with garbage service in unincorporated Gulf County. There are some 2,500-4,000 county residents who do not have garbage service. The primary challenge for the county budget committee, which has been wrestling with the issue of a landll that loses money and the lack of mandatory garbage pickup, was to make the collection of garbage more efcient, Butler said. In addition, the goal in bargaining for a new contract supported with a onecent sales tax would be to eliminate or greatly reduce the countys costs for yard debris and roadside garbage pickup. Excess revenue from the sales tax could be devoted to the landll, Butler said. The only real savings to the county is to get out of the roadside pickup, said deputy administrator Michael Hammond. Weve got to get out of the roadside pickup business. Hammond noted that inmate crews and the county limb truck bring that debris to the landll, which does not receive tipping fees for the material. Further, the county expense in fuel and wearand-tear on the limb vehicle would be reduced. McDaniel agreed that the county needs to get out of the roadside pickup business, saying limb removal had become almost an entitlement to county residents. McLemore expressed dissent on any move to mandatory garbage pickup, saying it would create a hardship for many residents in his district scraping by nancially. (Mandatory garbage pickup) is something I will not support, McLemore said. I do like the idea of a one cent sales tax. That might work for the county and the people I represent. Let the people decide. I think thats the only way to go. McDaniel said while he disagreed with additional taxes, he was not in favor of strict mandatory garbage pickup as a windfall for whatever vendor the county had and said the one-cent sales tax would spread the cost around to visitor and resident alike. Mandatory garbage pickup makes sense for everybody, said South Gulf County resident Pat Hardman, president of the Coastal Community Association. Whoever makes the problem should bear a cost for pickup. If we go to mandatory it is fair. Commissioner Joanna Bryan dissented on the referendum because it put any decision on addressing the costs to the county off another 16 months at minimum. It pushes the issue down the road, Bryan said. She also said the impact of another penny to the sales tax could be difcult for small businesses struggling with sales to absorb and also emphasized the need to bid out garbage service when the current contract expires early next year to bring prices down. I would like to see better prices, Bryan said. Id like to see if this went out for bid what the cost will be. That would be information we would need.

By TOM BAIRDSpecial to The Star Scallop season is in full swing and St. Joseph Bay is lled with boats, divers and snorkelers, all intent on collecting that delectable mollusk. Even individuals who dont eat seafood often make scallops their sole exception. The white muscle meat is slightly sweet, tender, and lends itself to easy preparation in a variety of ways. The scallop that fuels our local scallop collecting economy is the Atlantic Bay Scallop, Argopecten irradians. Found from the Gulf of Mexico to Cape Cod, this scallop is conveniently collected by swimmers since it occurs from the low tide line down to about 50 feet and rarely gets larger than about 3 inches. The scallop of course is a bivalve mollusk, that is, it has two hinged shells that cover the soft body, like oysters, clams and mussels. Unlike oysters, once they mature, scallops can move. They swim by swift contractions of the adductor muscle, the muscle that closes the two shells, which produces jets of water from the mantle cavity. Much like clapping, this produces a jerky, almost comical escape from a predator. To make this escape the scallop uses eighteen pairs of eyes that fringe the edge of the mantle cavity. As any collector knows, all those eyes are intense blue. Like our eyes, each eye has a lens, retina, cornea, and optic nerve. These enable the scallop to see movements or shadows in order to detect predators. The scallop also has specialized cells on tentacles along the edge of the mantle that are sensitive to chemicals in the water. These also help the bay scallop react to its environment. Young scallops are sessile, that is they attach to something like the blades of turtle grass. After fertilization, young scallops develop into a stage called a veliger that is planktonic, that is it drifts with the currents. They remain in this stage for 10-14 days. As the organism matures, they develop into juvenile scallops called spat. They then settle out of the water column and attach themselves to seagrass blades. Eventually they detach and remain on the bottom. The young scallop shells may be red, orange, or yellow and look like miniature adults. As they mature, the shell becomes the brown, tan or gray shell usually seen. Having a healthy scallop population requires clean, unpolluted waters, and healthy meadows of seagrasses for the young scallops to attach while they mature. To maintain our scallop collecting economy requires protecting the lush turtle grass beds from destruction by boat propellers or silting. Bay scallops are not long lived, rarely reaching two years. In Florida, scallops rarely live more than a year. After settling out as spat, they reach reproductive maturity quickly, and in Florida, most spawning occurs as water temperatures drop. Destruction of seagrass beds in previous years all around Florida and water pollution has greatly reduced the range of the bay scallop. In Florida, bay scallop populations are now typically sparse and scattered, and primarily along the upper Gulf coast. We are fortunate to be in the current legal harvest zone for bay scallops, which extends from the Pasco-Hernando County line northward to the Mexico Beach Canal, encompassing the Big Bend area of the Florida coast. Besides St. Joseph Bay, other sites nearby for collecting include the seagrass ats off St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge in Wakulla County and Keaton Beach in Taylor County. Collecting must be by hand or dip net. The scallops you purchase in stores or seafood markets likely come from China, or possibly Japan. These are generally aquaculture raised scallops. By most recent gures, China accounts for about 80 percent of the global scallop catch. There is a U.S. shery for the larger Atlantic Sea Scallop, which are harvested by dredges or trawls. The commercial harvest of bay scallops has been closed in Florida state waters since 1994; however, Commissioners for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have directed staff to explore the possibility of future commercial harvest of bay scallops. Because the scallop shell is so symmetrical, the scallop shell has become a frequent motif in art and architecture. Every automobile driver knows one place you see the scallop shellthe logo of Shell Oil or more correctly, Royal Dutch Shell. Yet few know why. The company traces its beginnings to 1833, when Marcus Samuel established an import business selling seashells to collectors in England. Years later, while collecting shells in the Caspian Sea, his son realized there was money in exporting oil from the Black Sea region. He commissioned an oil tanker to be built and by the early 20th century, he had a eet of tankers. Although the scallop shell logo has changed over the years, nevertheless, the logo pays homage to the companys earliest beginning as a seashell importing enterprise. Whether you collect the live scallop or just enjoy eating it, many enjoy collecting the scallop shells that wash up on our beaches. Besides bay scallop shells, there are usually shells of the more colorful calico scallop, Argopecten gibbus. Closely related to bay scallops, the calico scallop lives in deeper offshore waters on sandy bottoms. This shell is noted for the colors of maroon, lavender or red against a creamy white background. This scallop ourishes as far south as Brazil and throughout the Caribbean. We have abundant calico scallops, but their greatest concentration is on the Florida east coast, especially around Cape Canaveral.

Club president Willie Ramsey presented high school athletic director Chuck Gannon with a check for $7,000 last week, representing in part the proceeds of the highly-successful annual chicken dinner fundraiser and closing the books on another successful year for the Shark 100 Club. As it prepares for its 27th year, the club has donated to date including underwriting the annual chicken dinner fundraiser almost $200,000 since 1986 to Tiger Shark athletics. They have had a tremendous impact, Gannon said. Its very helpful. It is a good collaboration, people working together for the bene t of the kids. We appreciate everything the Shark 100 Club does for us. The annual chicken dinner fundraiser, which alone raised more than $3,000 in selling more than 660 dinners, is a testament to that collaboration. The Shark 100 Club picks up the tab for the components of the meal, chicken, coleslaw, baked beans and beverages and a cooking team of club members, led by School Board member John Wright, do most of the cooking. So many people put so much into cooking those chicken dinners, Ramsey said. On top of that, the coaching staffs do of the serving. Tickets to the fundraiser are sold in advance throughout the community. Each athletic team at the high school receives an allotment of tickets to sell. The proceeds, represented by the check last week, is disbursed in turn among all sports teams. We are not just donating to football or basketball or baseball, Ramsey said. The Shark 100 Club is an universal account for all the high school athletics. There is sweat-equity in there for the athletes. They get out what they put into it. Gannon said funds raised are divided among the sports programs based on several factors: involvement in the fundraiser and ability to bring in fans being two of the most prominent. The ones that are in need and pull in the people, those are the sports we are trying to help, Gannon said. Beyond raising funds, Gannon added, there is a sense of common purpose, of joint effort to buttress the athletic programs at a time when austerity is the buzz word and funding is a precious commodity for all extracurricular activities. Anyone interested in joining the Shark 100 Club, may submit their contribution to the Shark 100 Club, P.O. Box 524, Port St. Joe, FL 32457.

On Saturday, July 27 the Race for the Scallops begins with 5K and 10K runs down the Port City Trail. Runs have been successful in the past and its a different way to engage visitors, said Pickett. We can show the sights and sounds through a different avenue. In this case, our beautiful trails. The following day offers a 20and 42-mile bike fun ride from St. Joseph Peninsula State Park to Salinas Park for the rst leg, and those interested in completing the journey can continue on to the Franklin County line before returning to the Cape. Wed like to get people to the Cape and State Park, said Pickett. We want to get people into different parts of the community. Registration for the footrace and fun ride is $15 in advance and contestants will receive a T-shirt to commemorate the Scallop Festival. The fun ride is sponsored by Velo bicycle on Reid Avenue and the Friends of the St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. The following week, the party moves to George Core Park where on Friday, Aug. 2, gates will open at 5 p.m. ET. Vendors and live music will be on hand for hours of preweekend entertainment. This years festival will include music acts from all over the region, from Tallahassee to Fort Walton to South Florida, to right here in Port St. Joe. The Curry Brothers, Flabbergasted and Jim Morris will provide the lineup for the rst day and music will go until 11 p.m. in the evening. There will be music the entire time that the gates are open, said Pickett. At any point you can come out and hear live music. There are 57 vendors booked with two weeks to go. Arts and crafts will be the central focus and artists will be on-hand to showcase and sell their work. On Saturday, Aug. 3, festival gates open at 11 a.m. ET for the classic car show and a day-long concert. The car show, to be held inside the gates, along Miss Zolas Drive, will award prizes in eight categories. Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf will host a Ducky Derby where kids can purchase a rubber duck to be dropped into the parks lagoon. The owners of the rst ducks to make it across the water will receive prizes and have a chance at nabbing an iPad mini. The event will raise funds for the Sacred Heart Guild. The Kidz zone will give the young ones a place to work off some excess energy and enjoy games and crafts. Food vendors will be selling scallops which can also be purchased frozen at $35 for ve pound bags. Raf eld Fisheries provided the mollusks for the event since it is illegal to commercially harvest local scallops. The days music will be provided by Bowen and Bowman, Reed Waddle, King Cotton, The Sauce Boss, Cadillac Willy and the Kevin Jacobs Band. The festival will close on Sunday, Aug. 4 with events that include a Worship by the Bay, sponsored by the First United Methodist Church at 9 a.m. ET; a Brunch by the Bay at Sunset Coastal Grill at 10:30 a.m. ET; a performance by the band ThirtyThree at George Core Park at 1 p.m. ET; and nally a the nal leg of the Race to the Scallops with a kayak and paddleboard event starting at George Core Park. An event this big cant hope to survive without the aid of volunteers and Pickett reported that there are still positions available for those who wish to help. She estimates that 100 volunteers are needed and responsibilities range from handing out wristbands at the gate, selling T-shirts, serving scallops, or operating the ever-popular beer tent. Though the summer weather wasnt cooperative when it came to a planned music festival and some of the recent centennial celebration events, Pickett said that the Scallop Fest will go on as planned, rain or shine. She and ONeil feel con dent about their plans for this years event and hope it will be one to remember. Planning the festival was a daunting task, but Ive enjoyed it immensely, said Pickett. I think weve created a great prototype for the future. Those who wish to volunteer can call Chellsey ONeil at 850-227-1223. Volunteers will receive a free Scallop Festival T-shirt.

COMMUNITY www.starfl.comThursday, July 18, 2013 BPage 1SectionTrivia FunWilson CaseyWC@Trivia Guy.com By WES LOCHER229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star .com Tallahassees Bill Wharton, better known as the Sauce Boss, will return to Port St. Joe as a music guest for the 17th annual Scallop Festival. The Sauce Boss is known for his creative and high-energy blues concerts where he simultaneously cooks a pot of gumbo on stage. At the end of the concert, its chow time for the audience. Four years ago, Wharton brought his brand of swampy Florida blues to the Port St. Joe Marina and hell soon make a valiant return. Despite the absence, Wharton made it clear that hes no stranger to the Gulf. In his years as a solo artist he spent time playing up and down the venues of St. George Island and said that Cape San Blas is one of his favorite areas to visit. From the age of 14, Wharton had been playing music, but as legend goes, in early 1970, he wandered outside and found a 1930s steel guitar in his yard and the instrument showed him the way of the blues. He bared his soul and started penning songs about harmony and brotherhood. Blues is universal, said Wharton. The music lifts you up and thats why I play it. For a cook, who has a degree in English education, he likes that the music allows him to speak in simple terms and yet show complicated ideas. He calls blues music real and authentic. Hot sauce was merely a side interest for Wharton in the early 80s. Unhappy with what was available on the market, hed attempted to make his own, always on the hunt for the perfect blend of heat and taste. It was after a friend gave him some Datil peppers from St. Augustine that he nally achieved hot sauce nirvana. He began growing the peppers and selling his concoction, which he dubbed, Liquid Summer Hot Sauce. As someone who was on stage night after night, he had the perfect place to sell it. It was on New Years Eve of 1990 that his two passions came together on stage. He wanted to prove to his concert audience how delicious his hot sauce was, so he cooked a pot of gumbo on stage and doused it with Liquid Summer. After seeing the reactions of his well-fed crowd, he realized what his show would become moving forward. Thats the genius of serendipity, said Wharton about the experience. Cooking gumbo while playing music isnt a simple task, though Wharton admitted that over the years, By TIM CROFT227-7827 | @PSJ_Star tcroft@star .com The Currys have chosen to take a summer vacation pastime and make it better. If, as Jimmy Curry said, the group can have some fun and not end up being too poor, well, all the better. The Currys hope to enter a recording studio in Charlottesville, VA sometime in the fall to lay down the tracks for their rst full-length album. They are hoping their fans and friends will join them in the studio by way of www.kickstarter.com, a website devoted to providing fundraising opportunities for independent artistic projects, whether lm, painting or, as with The Currys, music. The Currys hope to raise $12,000 by Aug. 13 to fund the recording of the album. Donations can be made via a variety of packages that offer in return a copy of the released album, the bands eternal gratitude, t-shirts and other perks. It has become a good way for a variety of independent artists to fund their projects, Jimmy Curry said. The basic idea is they are pre-ordering the album. They are helping us record and ordering a copy of the album. The Currys have been primarily a family affair. Jimmy and his older brother Tommy, both born and raised in Port St. Joe, began performing together around local clubs during summers off from college and careers. Separated by three years, Tommy was playing guitar and writing songs while in high school with Jimmy eventually picking up the bass. Jimmy began playing the guitar his freshman year at William and Mary and one summer ve years ago Tommy reeled me in to perform locally. The talked to the owners of Verandas in Apalachicola and got a gig and it went from there, performing at such area venues as Lookout Lounge, the Thirsty Goat, Haughty Heron and during the PoJo Music Fest. We loved it, Jimmy Curry said. We had a great time, so much fun, and we come back each summer. They will also perform at the upcoming Scallop Festival. A change came when their cousin Galen Curry joined the band. Their music became known for fabulous harmonies and an energetic and charismatic stage show, as Galen wrote on the groups kickstarter page. The band has since added a rhythm section of mates they know in Charlottesville, which Jimmy said has a great music By Melanie TaylorExtension Agent II 4-H/Family & Consumer Sciences Campers often describe camp as a happy and fun place. The campers and the counselors who work with them are obviously happy at camp. They smile a lot. They look relaxed. Theres a lot of laughter. So many fun things happen at camp every day that its no surprise its such a happy place for kids. 4-H summer fun was had by all! From June 24-28, youth from Gulf County attended a veday residential camp at 4-H Camp Timpoochee in Niceville. The campers had a funlled week of kayaking, archery, air ri e, snorkeling, swimming, marine science, rocketry, crafts, singing, dancing, campres, and much more. While at camp the youth participated in many opportunities to expand their leadership skills, make new friends, and learn community living skills and other basic life skills, while away from the comforts of home. The Florida 4-H camping program strives to build youths life skills through outdoor adventure. Instilling a sense of wonder of the natural world, respecting wildlife and its habitat, and encouraging kids curiosity about the outdoors are major components of 4-H camping. However, camps arent just about nature. Science and technology, sports and leisure, teambuilding and healthy lifestyles are all part of todays camping phenomenon.

If so, the answer may be simpler than you think: get moving. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that adults get 150 minutes of exercise each week which translates to about 30 minutes, 5 days per week. The good news is that you dont have to be training for a marathon to improve your health. Just 30 minutes per day of a moderate-intensity activity like walking can dramatically improve your health. Feel like you dont have 30 minutes to dedicate to exercise? Try breaking-up your exercise into shorter sessions. Try walking for 10 minutes, three times each day or for 15 minutes, twice daily. Just remember, making time to exercise is critical for your health. In the words of the Earl of Derby, Those who do not nd time for exercise, sooner or later will have to nd time for illness.

Please let us know if you plan to attend.For great health, get moving Special to The StarMole crickets damage turf grass in several ways. They tunnel through the soil near the surface. This tunneling action loosens the soil so that the grass is often uprooted and dies due to desiccation of the root system. Both species of mole crickets damage grass roots causing thinning out of the turf and, eventually, completely bare soil. Mole crickets live in the soil and feed on plant roots. Their front legs are short and stout well adapted for tunneling. Their velvety skin is light brown, and the adults, which reach a length of about oneand-a-half inches, have prominent wings folded over their backs. Each spring, mole crickets lay eggs in the soil. The nymphs, which hatch in about two weeks, look like the adults, except theyre smaller and lack fully developed wings. These nymphs mature very gradually, reaching adulthood the following spring. Thus, there is only one generation per year. Although mole crickets live mostly below ground, the adults are readily attracted to lights especially in the spring, and throughout the summer. At these times, theyre commonly found under street lamps, electric signs, and similar illumination. Mole crickets are most active at night, especially after a rain or irrigation, and when the temperature is about 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Under these conditions, they make burrows in the upper inch or two of the soil. Occasionally, theyll partially emerge to gather bits of food. These surface burrows, which range from about one/eight to three/quarters of an inch in diameter, look like miniature mole runs. This burrowing loosens the soil, causing plants to dry out. However, the most serious damage is caused by the cricket feeding on the roots of lawn grass. Inspect for mole crickets soap flush is an effective method for surveying mole cricket populations, especially in the late spring and early summer when the crickets are small and tunneling activity is not readily evident. Mix 1.5 fluid ounces of liquid dishwashing soap in two gallons of water and apply with a sprinkling can to four square feet of turf in several areas. If an average of two to four mole crickets appears on the surface within three minutes, then a treatment is probably needed. To insure even pesticide coverage, its best to treat no more than 500 square feet at a time. Mark off the area to be covered, and apply half the recommended amount evenly, back and forth in one direction. Then, turn at right angles and apply the rest. After spraying, irrigate for about 60 minutes. Do not water after applying baits. Baits are most effective when the fastgrowing nymphs need a lot of food from late June through September. The sooner baits are applied after damage is noticed, the more effective theyll be. Baits may be applied by hand, but be sure to wear rubber gloves. For sprays, a garden hose attachment applicator will do the job, one that requires 15 to 2gallons of water passing, through the hose to empty a quart jar, or you can use a pressurized pump-up sprayer, make sure water/chemical ration are correct and the sprayer has been calibrated. Regardless of whether you use a spray or bait, a second application in two weeks will provide better control. For specific pesticide recommendation, check with your garden center, or Gulf County Extension Service @ 639-3200 or visit our website: http://gulf.ifas. ufl.edu or www.http:// edis.ifas.ufl.edu and see Publication EENY 235.Monitor your lawn for mole crickets RROY LEE CARTERCounty extension director

LocalThe Star| B3Thursday, July 18, 2013 SAUCE from page B1things have gotten easier. His rst shows with the gumbo pot at his side also included the prep of the meal, though he quickly learned that dicing onions while trying to play blues licks wasnt a natural t. He now does all his prep in advance. The rst time I made gumbo on stage, I basically had a bag of groceries with me, he laughed. It was a total mess. Wharton now has a regimen that he practices prior to each show to ensure that all ingredients are ready and everything is in its place. While he feels his system is more efcient now, it wasnt without growing pains. He said, A few times, I had to take breaks during the show so that I could go to the store! Wharton chose gumbo as his stage dish for the same reason he enjoys blues music: it brings people together. The traditional Creole dish is a combination of African American, Native American, Spanish and even German culinary inuences. Gumbo is a melting potliterally! said Wharton. As people, were all different, but when we sit at the table together, we make something good. Wharton has served over 190,000 bowls of gumbo in the last 24 years and doesnt show any signs of slowing down. Recent gigs have taken him to North Carolina and Washington DC and in the past hes traveled extensively across the United States and Canada. His gumbo has taken him many places he never imagined, including Roman amphitheaters and Napoleonic opera houses in France. Ive played everywherefrom France, to Ireland, to a show in a Laundromat in Tallahassee, said Wharton. Where some musicians might use their days off on tour to get a little bit of rest and relaxation, Wharton visits area homeless shelters and performs for free while still spoonin up his trademark meal. Nine years ago, he started the non-prot organization Planet Gumbo to raise awareness about homelessness, feed the needy and give hope and sustenance through music and the message of gumbo. Its what I do to put energy back into the community, said Wharton. Some people cant come to the shows, so I go to them. For Gulf County residents who attend the Sauce Bosss performance at the Scallop Fest, Wharton promises to deliver a rocking show. Get ready for some high-energy blues, he warned. It will be upbeatthis isnt cryin into your beer music! The Sauce Boss will take the stage at 5 p.m. ET on Saturday, Aug. 3 at George Core Park. Tickets are $5 for the event. Children six and younger and military personnel with valid I.D. get in free. For more information on the Sauce Boss and to hear his own brand of swampy Florida blues, visit him online at www.sauceboss. com. To learn more about Whartons organization, Planet Gumbo, visit www. planetgumbo.org. scene, though Jimmy, Tommy and Galen remain the traveling band for now. In 2010, they cut an extended play, six-song collection in Sopchoppy under the direction of Rick Ott and also toured Ireland with Ott, playing 14 dates. They have also played at venues in New York City they will play at a small club in the city next month Gainesville, Nashville and Virginia. But other than summer, the band members went their separate ways. Galen spent time in Austin, Texas trying to hone his craft while Jimmy was working as a ski instructor in Utah and Tommy taught middle school science and math in Connecticut. In time, Galen and Jimmy moved to Charlottesville and began lobbying Tommy. We decided that we were going to commit more to music full-time, Jimmy said. Hopefully, we will have a recording and go out sometime in the spring to support it. We all have enjoyed playing music and understand and have no problem with holding down other jobs to pay the bills. It is fun and rewarding. Its the most fun job you can have, I think. The record will include all original songs. Jimmy, Tommy and Galen, due to the distance in their lives, generally write individually and show the others the song once suitably crafted by the songwriter. Input, Jimmy said, can be taken or left on the table, and from there it is a question of lling in the blanks, adding harmonies, full orchestration, etc. (Songwriting) is a lot of fun, Jimmy said. It is very rewarding and enjoyable to do. It kind of comes in ashes. Some take a long time to complete, others might come in an hour. Singer/songwriters, that whole genre had a big inuence on us. We listened to a lot of Bob Dylan and Neil Young growing up because that is who our parents (Drs. Betty and Tom Curry) listened to. There are contemporary groups that play the same kind of music. Inuences that can be heard in The Currys music include current popular groups such as Mumford & Sons and the Dropkick Murphys. Jimmy and Galen eventually reeled in Tommy to make a go of music fulltime. They will be based out of Charlottesville after their New York City gig and hope they nd the monetary support to be in the studio in September. For now we are satised with making music a full-time thing, Jimmy Curry said. Its not really an end game for anybody who understands how things work. We just hope to have some fun, get our music out and maybe not be too poor while we are doing it.

Commissioner Smiley received the designation along with 13 other county commissioners during an awards ceremony held at the FAC Annual Conference in Hillsborough County, FL. All of these courses required to complete this certication were worth the time and effort to complete. The knowledge received on how effective government operates, can assist new commissioners in their career, Smiley said. Launched by FAC in 2006, the Advanced County Commissioner (ACC) education program, The Florida Forum for County Leaders, is an advanced leadership program designed for graduates of the Certied County Commissioners (CCC) program. This year, the program has been held in Alachua County and saw 14 commissioners graduate in June with a total of 132 graduating since the inception of the program in 2006. This certication allows our citizen electorate to become experts in county government improving their communities, said FAC Executive Director Chris Holley. Through FACs education programs we are able to teach commissioners how to advance their policies through the complexities of government bureaucracies. The ACC program is organized as a series of three seminars, with 27 hours of course work. The course content focuses on leading within Floridas counties. Participating Commissioners must commit to fully participate in all three seminars in order to graduate. Seminars include: Leadership in these Turbulent and Transformative Times; Leading Your Communities During Turbulent Times; and, Understanding and Working with Stakeholders and County Makers. The University of Florida/IFAS Extension has sponsored this program for the last ve years in Alachua County. For more information about the ACC program and courses, visit the FAC web site at www.-counties.com. For 80 years, the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) has represented the diverse interests of Floridas counties, emphasizing the importance of protecting home rule the concept that government closest to the people governs best. The Florida Association of Counties helps counties effectively serve and represent Floridians by strengthening and preserving county home rule through advocacy, education and collaboration.Smiley earns FAC Advanced County Commissioner Designation sS PEci CI Al L toTO thTH E stST Ar RFlorida Association of Counties graduates Smiley from secondary certication program.
