Considering Engineer Firms


Joel Strait Tests His

Luck A Little More

Says He'll Fly Again After A Crash
In Calhoun County In Light Plane
A cat reportedly has nine lives. A baseball game
lasts for nine innings, with three outs per inning before
a team either wins or loses. Joel Strait of Port St. Joe
has walked away from three airplane crashes and says
he's not through flying, yet.
"That's the reason I fly the small, light aircraft. You
can slow them down so much before they hit the
ground that chances of any serious injury to yourself
are very small," Strait said Monday, while getting a pre-
scription filled to doctor some cuts on his forehead and
smaller cuts about the face from his latest crash.
"The other guy didn't get a scratch," he said. "if the
windshield had popped out as it's supposed to and
hadn't broken, I wouldn't have received a scratch, ei-
ther," Strait said.
Saturday morning started out good for Joel and Don
Manley of Lynn Haven. They piled into Strait's 150
Cessna for some recreational flying. Stopping at River-
side Restaurant in Blountstown to have lunch with Ter-
ry Linton of Wewahitchka, also out for an early spring
flight, the trip continued on to near Abe Springs in Cal-
houn County, to visit with flying buddy, Ken Settle-
mire, who has a crop-dusting business there. ,
As he took off, the problem struck. Just as the
plane lifted off, suddenly it started slowing, even
though the engine was putting out full power. Abruptly,
the plane stopped and slammed to the ground. It
struck a nearby mobile home alongside the runway.
The right wing of Strait's plane struck the kitchen win-
dow of the mobile home and the plane settled to the
ground. Other than the cuts received by Strait, nobody
was hurt.
After the crash, Strait found he had struck the top
wire on a power transmission line which ran along the
end of the runway. "It didn't have markers on it and I
didn't see it. My passenger said he didn't see it either.
The wheel on my main landing gear just caught the
wire and tore down power line for a quarter mile," he
said.
When asked if he was going to fly again, Strait re-
plied, "Oh yeah, I'll be right back there after I get an-
other plane. It'll cost too much to fix the old one, so I'll
be in the market for a good used, light, airplane."
He stressed the "light".


The, City Commission has
narrowed down to three the list of
available candidates to perform
environmental engineering servic-
es for the City for the coming
year.
Alvarez, Lehman '& Asso-
ciates, the City's present engi-
neering firm, tops the list in the;
competition for the post. The oth-
er two finalists to make the cut
out of a field of nine firms apply-
ing, are: Betz-Converse-Murdoch
and Smith & Glloespie Engineers,
another firm with a long associa-
tion with the City.
Interviews will "begin in two
weeks with representatives of
each firm, to determine which
one is contracted with for their
special services.
I The City maintains an envi-
ronmental engineering service to
keep it out of trouble with the En-
vironmental Protection Agency
and the Department of Environ-
mental Regulation.
TO SCRAP INCINERATOR
The City of Port St. Joe has
its own "Super Collider" or "Space
Station" or SDI.
The City has decided to take
proposals to scrap the incinerator
at the Wastewater Treatment
Plant. The incinerator has been at
the plant ever since it was built,
but has never worked.
Recommended" by the deign-
ing engineer, 20 years ago, as the
piece of equipment needed to
burn a fiber residue of the plant,
the City purchased the Incinera-
tor for approximately $250,000.
With renovations made, in an at-
tempt to make it work, the cost
has sky-rocketed to approximate-
ly $400,000..
The incinerator woula never
work since the residue at the
Wastewater Treatment Plant con-
tained too much lime to make it
burn.
Now, it will become scrap
OTHER BUSINESS
In other items of business,
the Commission:
-Granted a variance to Tra-
vis Burge for a home he wanted
to build at 2003 Marvin Avenue.
No objections were voiced.
-Agreed to secure emergency
telephone bids to repair a col-
lapsed 10-inch water well at the
Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Program's A Lot of Benefit for a Little Effort


Gulf County's Scholarship Program is oper-
ated like a program of its kind should be oper-
ated. It isn't free. A student has miniscule re-
quirement of himself if he is to receive the
"goodies" being held out to him.
The main stipulation to obtain the "goodies"
is that one must want to better himself enough
- that he be willing to put forth some effort. None
of the rules for obtaining scholarship money is
tied to any expenditure of money, whether or
not you selected the proper set of parents or if
you must qualify in some way or other either
by grades or accomplishments.
If you can meet the requirements of college
and follow the procedure offered to every stu-
dent of Gulf County Schools from the seventh
grade through your senior year, you will receive
the necessary help to attend college. Period.
Boy or girl. White, Negro, Latin, Oriental,
Indian, or whatever. You can go. So don't
cop out of the program and try to justify
-yourself by saying, '"They wouldn't help me."
The Scholarship Committee will see that
you attend college-IF-you want to go.
That Is the reason for the point system: to
weed out the ones who want to get an educa-
tion to better themselves as opposed to the
ones. who just want the opportunity to play
-around. The committee is not interested in fi-
. nancing a trip to college for students who just
want the experience of having made the scene.
A lot of thought has gone into Gulf County's
program. Many hours have gone into deciding


just what to require of a student to weed out
the ones who are not interested in a better life.
This plan is the result. People are flocking to it
in droves, both to study it for application else-
where and for contributing money to the en-
dowment, so the money for your education will
be there when you need it.
Any Gulf County teen-ager, young per-
son, whether advantaged or disadvantaged,
has the guarantee of college, or any institu-
tion of higher learning from trade school to
university, at his disposal. But he/she must


make the choice. Nobody is going to force
you, or beg you.-
People are subscribing to the endowment
money because its rules are such that a youth
must make an effort to show he is at least in-
terested in breaking the tradition of his family
if none of them has ever been educated. They're
joining because they know their contribution-
which usually comes from people who don't
have that much money to waste-won't be
wasted on those who don't care enough about
their own future to at least express a desire


that it be better than the past.
, It's a pity the government can't adopt some
such policy, rather than quotas, set-asides, or
the like, so we can have guarantees our tax
money is going to those who will take good ad-
vantage of it.

Mrs. duPont is dead, but we can still thank
her memory and the administrators of her for-
tune, for limiting these funds only to those who
want it bad enough to put forth some positive
effort-from both students and parents.


Shark Basketball Teams Make Us Proud


The Sharks have once again made us proud
as a city, of their accomplishments. Time after
time our athletic teams measure up to our ex-
pectations and let people from other communi-
ties know that Port St. Joe has a team which
does not quit and which must be reckoned
with right down to the wire.
The basketball season is over. The ball has
been put away and the nets stored away in a
corner until another day, but the spirit the
sport has engendered remains.
The Sharks made all of our collective chests
swell a bit with pride when they ran off that
undefeated skein of victories after the holiday.
Their record was the envy of most teams. The
Sharks defeated teams larger than they, with
sheer guts and tenacity. They defeated strong-


er, larger, better teams through their desire
and "getting with it".
But, when tournament time came along, it
brought with it a good Shanks team, whose
shortest young man was taller than our tallest
young man. In basketball, a good, tall team
usually defeats a good, shorter team. It hap-
pened Saturday night.
Again, the Sharks didn't back down from
the Shanks team, even though their reputation
was about as good as the Sharks and they
were considerably taller. They took the game to
Shanks and came within a whisker of defeating
the Gadsden County team. It took an overtime
period for Shanks to pull it out.
The Sharks had defeated Shanks only 'once
during the regular season. They invited Shanks


down here to the Coliseum and proceeded to
whip up on them. But, when the Sharks went
to Quincy for the return game, the Shanks
team had figured out how to beat them-the
sign of a good team.
The football team and now the basketball
team have all served notice that when you meet
Port St. Joe you had best be ready to play your
very finest!
We want to congratulate the team and the
coaches for a fine season of exciting basketball.
You played the game hard, but fair, all the way.
You didn't really embarrass anyone intentional-
ly or flagrantly. If a call went against them,
they took it like men and played a little hard-
er. There was no quitting.

Windy March Is the Perfect Month to Fit Between Feb. & April


WINDY, WINDY MARCH got
here a few days early this year.
Actually, the month of March ar-
rived last Thursday, February 25,
with a blustery, windy day and is
still blowing.
Could this be the "Ides"
which are commonly linked with
the month of March? I don't par-
ticularly know what the "Ides"
are, but they are on the 15th day
of March. So, you watch out for
them, you hear? Whatever they
are.
Maybe some of 'you know
what the "Ides" are and will share
that piece of valuable Information
with me. I have aroused my curi-
osity.
I turned over my calendar
leaf Friday, since I wouldn't be
here Sunday to turn it over on
the last day of February. My cal-
endar hangs on the wall, right in-
front of my left eye, to the left of
the. computer, so I can check
dates without having to move
from a typing position. Too, the


Etaoin Shrdlu

I-


calendar is handy to check spe-
cial days, holidays, historic days
and such.
I CHECKED the calendar im-
mediately on turning the page, to
find out if I could legitimately lay
claim to a day off without feeling
guilty. No dicel There isn't a day-
off holiday to be had in March.
That isn't to say March is a
complete bust as a month. March
is a very important month. It's
more than just a month to separ-
ate February from April.
There are real reasons to
have the month of March. It is


necessary. It is important. It is
needed. March isn't one of your
expendable months.
All kinds of important events
-such as Earth Day, Newspaper
Education Week, St Patrick's
day, Black Press Day, the first
day of spring-you name it and
March has itL
March is even the month of
my birth ... an important event
in history; especially mint
AS I SAID, March started
this year in traditional style. The
wind blew, the rains came, the
temperature danced up and


down. Snow threatened the last
few days of February, but the
northern jet stream went back up
north where it belongs.
It did snow up in north Geor-
gia, which is as close as it came
to us.
But, just you watch out!
March will be with us for another
27 days. Anything can happen in
27 days; even pretty weather.
MARCH IS ONE OF those 31
day months, which leads one to
think it was kind of tacked on af-.
ter the, other 10 months were
named and situated. February
was the last month to be created
and took the 28 most undesirable
days left after dividing the year
up into 12 slices.
February couldn't accommo-
date more than 28 days. It seems
long enough without stretching it
out!
One of those February days
happens to be groundhog day. I
have it on good authority [the


weatherman on TV] that the
groundhog saw his shadow in
February, so six more weeks of
winter were .predicted. That was
four weeks ago, now, so we
shouldn't have but two more
weeks left.
So, you see, March has an
important role to play in the
scheme of seasons and months. It
isn't a complete dud. March. is
the month when winter ends.
That's officials On March 21, the
first day of spring officially rolls
around, giving.some sort of credi-
bility to the month.
One day before spring, I
sprang forth into this world and
people have wondered about
God's plan for March ever since.'
BUT, YOU KNOW, if I had to
pick a favorite month of the year,
It would be March. Not because it
is my birth month, but for other
reasons.
First, the month of March is
never excessively hot nor exces-


sively cold. It's not even luke-
warm or chilly. It's something of
both. It's still too cold to go swim-
ming but it's not warm enough to
have to cut the grass. It's still too
cold to wash the car early in the
morning, but it's not yet too
warm to begin thinking about it.
The temperature is just right
to start digging and planting, or
to go somewhere or to take a
walk. These are things everyone
likes to do and look forward to
the opportunity to indulge.
.So, you see, March is handy
after all. It is a good month, it
isn't just a time of gusty winds, or
rain, or a time of uncertainty
where the weather is concerned.
It's a time to begin thinking about
baseball.;It's a time 'to put away
the footballs and basketballs.
If anyone' ever tells you the
month of March will never
amount to anything, you just
counter that March is the month
in which everything good has a
start.

reads in the paper, hears on the radio or sees on TV, he might be
awfully confused.
There has been a drastic change in the roles both men and
women play in our society in the past few years. More and more
women are joining the work-force each day, taking on jobs that be-
fore were uniquely "men's" jobs.
And I, for one, think it's a good thing. Women need to know
what it's like to suffer through the pains of responsibility that's
prevalent in the market-place today. Some women, however, have
been going a little too far, like the woman journalist who visited
football locker rooms after pro football games a year or so ago.
Nevertheless, roles for men and women are being reversed at an
alarming rate these days. If you don't believe it, stop by a construc-,
tion site that is funded through a government agency one day. If
you look closely at some. of the workers you will notice a slight
bulge in some of their shirt pockets.. Some of the bulges are not cig-
arettes or papers in their pockets, as a closer inspection might re-
veal.
And it's good that women now have the right to get Jobs that
pay the same as men, for the.same work done. President Clinton
thinks it's good, too, but he's a little more adamant about it than
most people. (A-question: Did he grow up without a daddy?)
Several years ago roles of men and women were much different
than those of today. In all my first 17 years of living, I can't ever re-
member my father cooking anything in the kitchen, washing a dish
,or a load of clothes. If he ever used a broom it was to beat a stub-
born horse or cow.
"He not only expected all housekeeping chores to be done by the
women, he demanded it. Arid it wasn't just my father; it was just
the way things were in those days. His and all men's Job was
to provide the money and 'supplies for the household and mother
and girls were expected to do the housework.
Today, however, the worm has turned. Almost every day I see
men doing the family shopping, taking the kids to school, doing the
washing and preparing family meals. All some of these men need is
a dress, some stuffing in their shirt pockets and an operation to be-
come a bona fide housewife. Well, most would need some plastic
surgery, too.
But, this, too, is good, in my opinion. Keeping house is a full-
time job in itself. Add a couple of children to it and it's a daylight-
to-dark job. It's not nearly as easy as it may seem to those who
have never tried it, even with all the modem conveniences available
today.
All of this is quite confusing to me, but I'm not going to worry
about it. I've got more important things to occupy,my mind. Right
now, for instance, I have a load of clothes that need to be put in the
dryer, some last-minute shopping to do and dinner to -cook before
the wife and children get home. And there's the ironing that has to
be done before tomorrow morning.
But I don't care what anyone says or thinks, I wouldn't join the
army today if they gave me the Empire State Building!

To the Editor:
I must admit that the article
and editorial concerning Middle
Schools in last week's paper took
me by surprise. This is especially
true because of the considerable
effort put forth on this subject by
the Chamber of Commerce Edu-
cation Committee which was ap-
pointed while you were President
.of The Chamber of Commerce.
It is unfortunate that this is-
sue has generated so much con-
troversy. Nearly every educator
with whom we have, discussed
this matter believes that the best
way to educate our children is
through a Middle School ap-
proach. The people that have at-
tended the three School Board
public meetings have been nearly
unanimous in their support for a
Middle School Program.
The District Advisory Council
was appointed pursuant to State
Law to advise the School Board
on a variety of issues and to as-
sist in formulating school plans
required by the Blue Print 2000
Legislation. In trying to accom-
plish this objective, the Advisory
Council has met with teachers,
administrators, school board
members and. has discussed this
matter with parents all over the
county. Our aim in all of these
discussions has been to deter-
mine the areas in our school sys-
tem that need improvement and
what might be appropriate means
to achieve that improvement. We
have looked at discipline, curricu-
lum, tommunity.involvement and
many other topics which we felt
were .important 'to school irm-
provement. Literally thousands of
hours of volunteer time has gone
into this effort. The reason that
the proposal for a Middle School
was presented to the School
Board prior to other recommen-.
dations and reports from the Ad-
visory Council is because all of
the groups with which we dis-
cussed the issues felt that it was
extremely important. The people
that were concerned with disci-
pline, felt that discipline would be
'improved at the High Schools and
Elementary Schools by the re-
moval of 6th, 7th and 8th grad-
ers. The people involved with cur-
riculum development felt that it
would be appropriate to teach
students in this age group in a
different manner than younger
and' older students. Those con-
cerned with budgeting felt that
the separation of this age group
would help to prevent them being
overlooked when it comes to
.spending school dollars. Many
other reasons for the implementa-
tion of the Middle School Program
have been presented to the Coun-
cil and the Council felt that it was
extremely important to proceed
on this issue.
Obviously, there are some
concerns. The High Schools at
both ends of the County have sig-
nificant amounts, of unused
space. Location and funding of
self-contained Middle Schools are
also serious issues that warrant
careful consideration before any
action Is taken. However, this
generation of Middle School Stu-
dents should not be held hostage
to 20-year-old errors in growth
projections. It is not the intent of
the District Advisory Council to
push one solution to this problem
over another to the benefit or det-
riment of any small group in our
Community. It Is the intent of the
District Advisory Council to urge
the School Board to move as
quickly as is reasonably possible
to determine the best alternative
for creating Middle School Pro-
grams at both ends of the County
and then implementing those pro--
grams as quickly as they can rea-
sonably be implemented.
There is no individual whom
we have been able to identify on
the School Board, in the School
System or on the District Adviso-
ry Council who will benefit per-
sonally from the. implementation
of this .program. The beneficiaries
of this program will be the 6th,
7th and 8th graders who are no

this effort.
Sincerely,
Thomas S. Gibson

To the Editor:
In the process of finding a so-
lution to establishing a middle
school, let us as citizens of Gulf
County come together and work
this problem out in harmony. It is;
important, that we all, both
school board members and citi-.
kens of Gulf County, work for the'
betterment of our children. There'
is no problem that we as a people
'cannot solve. Together we stand,
'divided we fall.
Sincerely,
Nathan Peters, Jr.

To the Editor:
I hate to be POSITIVE. but...I
am forced to take issue with our,
editor's view of the middle school
concept. Wherever you obtained
the false information that middle'
schools were started and contin-'
uge to be built because of over-
crowding, I don't know. But, ac-
tually attending one of the three
forums would have educated our
Editor so you would' not have"
made such a grave error. ,
The middle school _.oncept
endorses removing sixth, seventh,
and eighth grade kids from the
Senior High environment 'and
teaching them with a curriculum ,'
that supports and educates these,
kids during this most difficult of.'
times called puberty. It endorses'"
a separate environment for these
kids because of the tremendous
'vulnerability these children have
to peer pressure at this time. A.
Senior High school, with Its adult
social agenda, is not a place for a
twelve or thirteen-year-old to.ob-
tain peer .review. I will not at-.
tempt to address all of the points
'of merit of a middle school, but, if
anyone Is interested, please call
,Mrs. Betty Bidwell and she will
see that you receive this informa-


tion.
Our Editor seems to think
that if parents would just buckle
down on their children, our edu-
cational problems would be large-
ly solved... While I can't argue
with that logic, I can expound on
it. If the Iraqis and Libyans would
just relax and calm down the
United States taxpayers would
not have to shell out several bil-
lion dollars a ,year for defense
spending. If people on welfare
would just find a job, we would
not have this huge annual entitle-
ment bill to pay. While logic like
this is impossible to argue with,
reality dictates otherwise.
The district advisory council
has solicited the input of teach-
ers, administration, parents and
business people for information
on ways to improve our school
system. They have put in many
hours assimilating this informa-
tion and putting it into the form
of recommendations to the school
board; I'm sure the council would
welcome our Editor's input at the
meetings, and would'be happy to
have you approved as a council,
member.'
While our Editor is certainly
entitled to his negative opinion,.
the council would much rather
have his constructive criticism at-
the meetings. Along with our Edi-
tor's contributions to the council
would come accurate information
about concepts that 'are being
recommended to the School
Board. The combination of these
two would Insure that future edi-
torials would not be entitled NEG-
ATIVE!.
Sincerely,
SFrank D. May, D.M.D.

To the Editor:
Reference your article about
Hturlbut's Store being run by oth-
ers, and mentioning my dad's
name CORRECTLY SPELLED. I
do appreciate this and your ad-
dressing not only his memory but
other fine establishments there in
St. Joe who have closed over the

Wes, back in the 50's either
you or Bill Smith used to print
my dad's stationery for him. It
was accomplished on (I think) a

cotton content in it and it looked
almost like it was parchment.
I have tried to locate the
same paper up in Memphis at
Hammermill papers, but they say
they are not the author. Does
your memory by chance stretch
back that far as to what kind it
was. AND, if you still have some

The Internal Revenue Service
is getting the word out that many
low-income older people may not
need to file a tax return. The IRS
will mail more than one million
letters early this year to provide
eligible taxpayers with the change
to save time and money.
According to IRS records,
during last year's filing season
approximately 1.5 million returns
were filed needlessly and many
paid for assistance with their re-
turns. The IRS says these taxpay-
ers had incomes below the
amount that requires filing.
For example, if you are sin-
gle, age 65 or older and your total
gross income is less than $6,800,
you do not have to file a federal
tax return. For a married couple,
both age 65 or older, a return is
not necessary if the total gross in-
come is less than $12,000. IRS
form 9452A provides a worksheet
to determine if taxpayers need to
file a return.
Many retirees file a tax return
only to receive a refund of money
withheld from their pensions. Ac-.

Ban on Gag


A three-year study conducted
by marine biologists at Florida
State University has led 'the Flori-
da Marine Fisheries Commission
to recommend a January-to-April
ban on fishing for gag grouper.
Findings from the FSU re-
search project show the gag
grouper fishery one of Florida's
most important sport and com-
mercial fisheries is being rapid-
ly -depleted in the coastal waters
of the southeastern United
States.
Until now no one knew why,
said FSU marine, biologist Chris
Koenig, who heads the nation's
largest grouper research project,
based at FSU's Marine Laboratory
at Turkey Point in Franklin
County.
Koenig said that without a
ban on grouper fishing during the
spawning season January to
April there will be too few male
gags to replenish- the fishery
through reproduction.
"During spawning," Koenig
said, "the males, especially the
bigger ones, become very aggres-
sive and are usually the first to
take a hook. Quite simply, the
male fish -are being caught before
they have had a chance to do
their part in the reproduction cy-
The researchers say 'the
Spawning habits of the gag make
them an easy target for overfish-
ing.
'These spawning fish are very
vulnerable because they aggre-
gate in traditional spawning
areas,'.' Koenig said. "Every year
the fish come back and aggregate
in the same spot and, of course,
fishermen know where these
spots are."
Koenig said that fishing for
the gag grouper has intensified
over the past 10 to 15 years.
'The result has been a dra-
matic change in the number of
males in the population and a
dramatic change in the size dis-
tribution of males," he said. 'The
largest 'fish, 'especially large
males, have been depleted from
the population and have become
rare in the population." .
Both sport and commercial
fishermen have reported during
the past several years dramatic
reductions in the number of gag
grouper caught. Many commer-
cial fishermen who rely on the
gag are having trouble staying in
business.
'They're hurting out there,"-
Koenig said. "Some aren't catch-
ing enough grouper to pay for fuel
and to make their boat payments.
Even sport fishermen are com-
plaining."
Little was known about the
life cycles of grouper and practi-
cally nothing about the gag,
found on reefs from North Caroli-

ts Fishing


' Grouper
na to Texas, before the project be-
gan.
'The information that was-
available on any of these species
was either nonexistent or was so
dated that we couldn't rely on it
as a fishery management tool or
basis for fishery management,"
Koenig said.
The. FSU research team re-
viewed annual reports of gag
catches for the past decade, and
studied the fish in the laboratory
and in its natural habitat.
Last December Koenig pre-
sented a report to the Florida Ma-
rine Fisheries Commission, which
had been considering reef fish
regulations. After reviewing Koe-
nig's research, commissioners
proposed the ban on grouper fish-
ing.
"We knew there was a prob-
lem with the gag grouper in both
the Atlantic and the Gulf, and
were already considering a ban,"
said Russell Nelson, executive di-
rector of the commission. "Koe-
nig's. report gave us the scientific
evidence, we needed to take ac-
tion."
The commission finalized Its
bah proposal at its February 2
meeting. Public hearings will be
conducted this summer, then the
recimmiidat!i&" will go b1bfore'
the governor and Cabinet next'
fall.; If approved, the ban could go
into effect by January 1, 1994.

Career Day at WHS was a big success, with 14 careers repre-
sented. Students, grades 9-12, enjoyed hearing about opportuni-
ties, and got to ask many questions which were answered to their
satisfaction. I'm sure Career Day, which was a first for WHS, will
become an annual event. Many thanks to Mr. Bill Monks, our guid-

Shanks Downs Sharks, 81-77


QUINCY SHANKS 81
SHARKS 77
It took them an overtime peri-
od to do it, but the Quincy
Shanks basketball team will be
advancing in District 2-A basket-
ball, toward the state title, rather
than the Sharks.
The scrappy sharks had the
much taller Quincy team down by
10 at half time but couldn't hold
them off the rest of the way.
The Tigers were still seven
points behind heading into the fi-
nal quarter, when they began to
catch fire and wear down the
smaller Sharks. In the closing
seconds of the game, Shanks
took a 73-70 lead, but Reggie
Jones forced the game into over-
time when he sank a 3-pointer
from the comer, tying the score.
In the overtime period,
Sharks scored eight points, While '
the Sharks could come up with
only four.
With the Tigers closely guard-
ing Port St. Joe's leading point
makers, Toby Thomas took up,
the chore and sank 26 points for
his team. Arion Nickson still
managed 19 points and Reggie
Jones had 14 for the Sharks.
Monte Cummings led the Ti-
gers with 31 points, followed by
Pelvic Reid with 27. The Tigers
met Marianna Tuesday night in
the Regional tournament and the"
right to advance to the Sectional.

first outing in the District 2-A
tournament would be a replay of
the February 20 game with the
Tigers, when the Sharks trounced
the Calhoun County team.
But, the Tigers came roaring
back after a little rest and out-
scored the Sharks 14-6 in the
third quarter and come within 11

up their scoring pace in the final
stanza, but the awakened Sharks
scored enough to put the game

HEAD COACH Vern Eppin-
ette said, "I was so proud of both
the mental and physical part of
both games. We shot 54% against
Shanks from the field and had
only nine turnovers. We really


couldn't have asked for a better
performance. Shanks shot 58%
for the game which was better
than they normally shot. They
simply jumped over us and made
some nice plays.
S"I want to thank the many
people of Port St. Joe who had so
many nice things to say about the
effort given by our young men."
SHANKS WENT ON to ad-
vance in the Class 2A play-offs
Tuesday night, by defeating Marl-
anna 78-67. They will face Jack-
sonville Jackson in the Sectional
play-offs. Jackson features Pa-
rade All-American James Collins,
in their squad.

Sharks' Game Tonight at 7:00


The Sharks' first game sched-
uled for Wednesday at Sneads,
has been rescheduled to Thurs-
day at 7:00 because of inclement
weather. According to Coach
Duane Mc-Farland, the Sharks
should be a much improved team
from last year, after losing only
one senior. Fielding a young team
during '92, the team took some
"lumps" according to McFarland,
but should show a marked
improvement with another year of
maturity.
Returning seniors are Jon
Elliott, third base and David Lif-
fick. Six juniors will return: Josh
Colbert at first and outfield;


Adam Taylor, shortstop; Bryan
Butts, outfield and infield; Eric
Ramsey; catcher; Eric Monteiro
outfield and Skip Schweikert,
outfield. Elliott, Liffilck, Ramsey,
Colbert, Taylor and Butts will
share pitching duties. Des Bax-
ter, a ninth grader, will return in
the outfield and infield.
Other players are sophomore
Damon Walker, outfield and
infield, first year .senior Tappan
Gandy at first base and eighth
grader Ryan Yeager, infield.
The Sharks will travel to Flor-
ida High Saturday for a district
game with varsity game time at
12:00. The junior varsity, with


over 20 team members, will face
Florida High's j.v.

fewer hedge type plants such as
ligustrum and barberry while
dwarf yaupon, azaleas, and hol-:
lies are gaining favor, because
they need a minimum of pruning.
On a square foot basis, flow-
ers require more maintenance
than any other plants in the land-
scape. However, flowers usually
rank high among desired plants,
because of the color they provide.
When selecting flowering plants,
choose those with minimum care

CCDF Awards Check
Gerald Lewter, right, principal of Port St. Joe Elementary School,
accepts a check in the amount of $1,000 from'Father Jerry Huft. This
check represents the first grant awarded by the Christian Community
Development Fund.
The elementary school applied the grant to benefit students in
need of clothes, shoes and school supplies.,


daylilies, for example. Grass
growing in a flower bed can be a
real nuisance especially the
running varieties, such as bermu-
da and centipede. A mulch will
help keep down grass and weed
growth, conserve moisture, and
save work.
And, speaking of grass, re-
member that your variety of lawn
grass and its rate of growth will
influence mowing, fertilization, ir-
rigation, weed and pest control,
and thatch build up. Unfortu-
nately, some of the grasses that
make the best lawns require the
most care. These should be avoid-
ed, unless you're prepared to de-
vote the necessary time, energy,
and money for proper mainte-
nance. Another mistake espe-
cially for residents of rural areas
- is the establishment of too
large a lawn. A small, well-kept
lawn is much better than acres of
sand and weeds.
Of course, structural materi-
als in the landscape also require
periodic maintenance. So, select
these with care. For example, a
concrete patio or walk should not
need repair for 12 to 15 years. On
the' other hand, asphalt drives-
and walks must be sealed every
two years. Painted wood struc-
tures and fences need repainting
every three to four years, while
properly treated wood may last
20 years.
These are just a few of the
points to keep in mind as you
plan to remodel your landscape.
Through careful design and wise
selection of plants and construc-
tion materials, you can create a
yard that can be enjoyed without
excessive pruning, mowing, weed-
ing, painting, and paving. Sim-
plicity and durability are the
keys. The choice is yours... choose
wisely.

SStrep Throat

Sometimes Hard
0 to Clear Up
; By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

When a child has an infection of the throat or tonsils caused by
a special germ call Streptococcus, it is often referred to as "strep
throat"
Common findings associated-with streptococcal pharyngitis in-
clude sore throat, fevers, swollen neck glands, and frequently a red
flush of the skin called a scarlatinal rash. A child may be ill, seem
to recover, and then have the illness flare again. It is also possible
to have the infection with little or no symptoms.
Complications of an untreated streptococcal illness include
rheumatic fever and nephritis. Rheumatic fever causes heart dis-
ease and nephritis causes kidney damage. Since the discovery of
penicillin and its use to treat streptococcal illness, there has been a
marked decrease in the complications of streptococcal disease., No
longer are there rheumatic fever patients filling entire wards in hos-
pitals.
Sometimes it is hard to clear a streptococcal infection in a pa-
tient. The patient may have two or three courses of antibiotics and
still have the organism present in the body. When this happens, we
speak of the patient as a carrier. For some reason these patients
who have been treated with several, courses of antibiotic do not
seem to develop rheumatic fever or nephritis even though the germ
is still present.
School children or children in day care who are diagnosed as
having streptococcal pharyngitis should stay at home until they
have been on medication for 24 hours.

For Rentals of Your House or Townhome:


5 Good Reasons to Choose


REALTOR


1. LOWEST MANAGEMENT FEE: 15%

The lower a realtor's management fee, the higher the net return to the

owner. With Anchor's low 15% of the Gross Income, an owner saves

$3,000 over a 30% management fee, under the assumption that the

rental home produces $20,000 per year.




2. HIGHEST ADVERTISEMENT BUDGET:



$250,000.00


With, th e proper advertising and follow-up, .a 3-hbdrhoombeachtr.h

rental home should gross'$30,000'per year: In any case, combining low

management fee and high advertisement dollars means more money in
your pocket.






3. TOLL-FREE: 800-624-3964

Owners and renters can call us toll-free, 7 days a week, from 9:00 a.m.

to 5:30 p.m.




4. SAFETY OF AUDITED BOOKS

Head & Cole, PA, CPA have been auditing our firm, so we can account

for ever penny of your money.




5. RENEE SMITH, SALES MANAGER

Most everybody knows Renee on the Cape ... and anyone who knows

Renee, knows that she means business. If you have not yet met her,

don't delay any longer and dial (800) 624-3964.

- .-AK, rIJDlr Q. .JLIP Tn. E YL, MARCH 1


Profile on New Teacher,
Mark Taunton ,
Although not new to the
teaching profession nor Gulf
County, Mark Taunton is new to
our school. Mark is married to
the former Kathy Harris and the
father of two children, Justin and
Jesse. He received his degree
from the University of West Flori-
da. He enjoys art, music, playing
sports, and jogging. Mark is cur-
rently teaching in the ESE de-
partment at WES. He has also
been a mental health counselor
at Mowat Middle School, two
years at St. Andrew Elementary
SED Center, and part of a year at
Port St. Joe Elementary School.
Mark had this to say about
teaching, "I believe each student
should have the chance to excel.
To do this, we must first under-
stand that, we have choices. .My
reason for teaching is to help stu-
dents to understand that these
choices determine who we are.
My mother and father were the
biggest influences in my life. They
taught me that 'class' is who we-
are, not where we come from. I
have been very impressed by the
attitude here at WES. The teach-
ers are friendly and helpful and
the students seem to care about
the school." Welcome aboard,
Mark.
Rodeo King and Queen Pageant
Saturday Night
The fourth annual Rodeo
King and Queen Pageant will be
held at Wewahitchka Elementary


School on Saturday, March 6, at
6:30 p.m. Admission is $3.00 for
adults and $2.00 for students.
Second Grades Visit Zoo World
By all accounts, Zoo World is
a fantastic place .to visit. Second
graders report that the animals
seemed in good health, well fed,
and the place was squeaky clean.
They also found out that a 'Zoo
Mobile' will visit a place of your
choice for $50.00 per hour, bring-
ing animals of various habitats.
Teachers Doris Jean Whitten and
Judi Lister along with their stu-
dents enjoyed their day very
much.
Excerpts from Guatemala
Mrs. Tremain's third graders
are corresponding with third
graders from our'southern neigh-
bor, Guatemala. In regard to the
pictures Mrs. Tremaii sent, the
teacher said their school sure
didn't compare to American stan-
dards. Most of the schools have
between 40-60 kids in a class.
The children sent their pictures
and it is amazing to notice that
children are the same every-
where.
My Turn
Mrs. Ada Dozier, head custo-
dian at WES, asked me one day,
"Miss Linda, when you get
through writing about all the
staff, who will write something
about you?" I think I'll choose to
share a little about myself in a
bio-poem.

Jerry Moore

At M.B. First

Bapt. Church
God' restored his sight.
nevere asked the-Lord-to let"
me see, but to let me serve."
Evangelist Jerry Moore of
Lynn Haven lost his sight when
he was eight years old, leaving
him with only occasional.periods
of light perception. His widowed
mother took him to a variety of
doctors who: tried to help but
were unable to. They tried all the
treatments they knew, some of
which were often intensely pain-
ful, but all to no avail. Jerry was
bedridden from the age of eight to
13 and hospitalized much of that
time.
Jerry became a Christian at
the age of 13, but was rebellious
and independent.
In addition to the eye disease
that took his sight, Jerry suffered
from the age of three months to
the age of 22 from "qne of the'
plagues of Job,' a glandular prob-
lem which 'caused' painful car-
buncle-like areas which had to be
cut open to drain the Infection
from them. "I was never without'
pain all those years, and I'd often
wake up at night," he stated.
Shortly after he turned 18,
Jerry contracted staphylococcus
infection in his eyes which could
only be cleared up by burning it
out This left scar tissue in his
eyes, eliminating even the occa-
sional periods of light perception
and the doctors told him there
was no hope left of restoring any
of his sight. All this he said'
"helped me realize how dependent
we are on God's help."
One morning later that same
year he said, "I came to a place of
what we Christians call dedica-
tion 'or commitment to lay my
all on the altar for the Lord." At

Pastors Jim and Susan List of The Rock of Port St. Joe, 103 Garri-
son Avenue, invite you to join them each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.
as they gather to worship in the Lord.
Pastor Jim List was born in New Zealand to parents who came to
know the Lord through the Smith Wigglesworth revivals. His family was
raised in Central Africa, where is parents were called as missionaries.
Pastor List received 'ministry training in the United States and returned
to Africa where he helped establish some 60 ministries while building 16
churches in several African countries. He has traveled to many nations
of the world teaching, ministering and helping to train pastors. They
currently assist with providing medical supplies and support to missionaries operating in the country of Mozambique.
Jim and his wife, Susan most recently lived and ministered in Jamaica where they helped to establish two churches.
Jim helped to pastor one of these while being on staff with Caribbean Christ for the Nations Bible School in Montego Bay.
After their two years at Caribbean Christ for the Nations and returning to the states, they attended The Rock of Panama
City and submitted to the leadership of Apostle F. Nolan Ball. In January, 1993, Apostle Ball released Jim and Susan to
begin a church in Port St. Joe.
You are welcome and they look forward to the opportunity of ministering to you and your family.
