Middle School Plan Adopted
School Board Gives Unanimous Approval of Plan for Both Schools
... Football Coach and Athletic Director
Reports to Work
Principal Wesley Taylor thinks Port St. Joe High School.
has replaced an excellent coach and citizen with an equally
good citizen and excellent coach in the short space of just
over a month. With the surprise resignation of John Hicks
at the close of the school year, in May, the search was on
for a quality replacement, which Taylor says was the main
attribute In the activity.
"We have our man in Fred Priest," Taylor said this
week, as Priest reported to Port St. Joe High School Tues-
.day. ready for his new position.
Priest comes to Port St. Joe after considerable experi-'
ence as a head coach for 10 years in Colorado, a short
. stint as-a college assistant at a Kansas. college, four and.,,a
half years at Green Cove Springs as both an assistant and
head coach. He has spent the past two years as an offen-
sive coordinator under Bay High School head coach Jimmy
GLAD TO BE IN PORT ST. JOE
Priest, who brings a family with him, says he is glad to,
, be a part of the "Port St. Joe winning tradition." The new
head coach has a ;wife. Donna; two daughters, Harmony
and Amber and a son Jeremiah.'
Priest said, "I had heard of the Port St. Joe program
while I was at Green Cove Springs. I went to see the Jack-
sonville Bolles-Port St. Joe championship game in 1990,
and was impressed with the team, I look forward to becom-
ing a part of the program and the community."
The coach was also impressed with the fact that of the
last four men to coach football at Port St. Joe, three chose
to 'That speaks well for the community as a great place to
raise a family and become a part of the activities going on
here," he said.
GOOD CHARACTER AND ROLE MODEL
Taylor said he checked Priest's character before he act-
ed on his appointment. "I was more interested in what kind
of example he would set for our young men than with his
coaching ability, which also seems to be considerable,"
Taylor said. The principal said he feels as if the school and
the community has a man for the position which will show
enthusiasm for the game and concern for the community.
Port St. Joe High School will divide into
two sections when the 1994-9 school
term begins, into a middle schco l and a
At a meeting held Tuesday afternoon,
School Superintendent Walter V Ider was
given approval from the School Board to
proceed with making plans and ,securing
designs of a new [to' Gulf Count r middle
school concept for both Port St.i Joe and
Wewahitchka high schools. Thb Wewa-
hitchka renovation will not be rput into
place until the 1995-96 school ye ,r.
Superintendent Wilder had earlier pre-
sented suggestions from both hi4 and the
State Department of Education lo solve a
desire from a committee of citizerns named
to critique Gulf County schools. The com-
mittee suggested a middle s hool be
adopted, some six months ago, and the
concept is now being put into mo ion.
Wilder had suggested that. oie pod of
Port St. Joe High School be mad' autono-
mous, with its own entrance, sanitary fa-
cilities, principal and staff. "Only such fa-
cilities as the coliseum, music suite and
library would be shared," Wilder said.
"Every other operation, including guid-
ance, would be self contained."
STATE MONEY AVAILABLE
Wilder estimated, from his studies and
advice received, that the renovation of the
pod to accommodate students froni grades
seven and eight, would cost approximately
$125,000. He identified the source of the
funds as Capital Optlay, a source of funds
provided by the State Department of Edu-
cation, which can be used only for school
construction and renovation.
Wilder said the particular "Pod" of the
High School scheduled for renovation
hasn't been decided on, yet. "I would sus-
pect we would choose "Pod C", lie said,
"because that. particular pod contains
bathroom facilities and the other pod un-
der consideration does not."
The Sulperintendent's plan, adopted
unanimously by the School Board, also
would have its own trained staff, which
Wilder said could be secured from 'the
present staff in the school. "We already
have a corps of teachers trained as middle
school instructors, and would have a year
to train additional, staff we would need,"
Wilder said in his report.
WEWAHITCHKA IN '95
The Wewahitchka High School would
have its school renovated to accommodate
a middle school, beginning classes. in
1995, Wilder said. 'The smaller Wewa-
hitchka plant can't afford to take the room
from its present plant for a middle school.
We would have to build at least one class-

hitchka school but said more input would

Old Shacks Are Unsightly and Dangerous
A while back the City of Port St. Joe em-
barked on a program of getting rid of old
burned out shells of houses and those which
had simply become eyesores through neglect
and lack of use. There are several which fall
into -these categories throughout the City and
the Commission is concerned about them.
The burned out shells and the dilapidated
condition of the few homes which have deterio-
rated over the years through neglect are also a
concern of the citizens which live in the neigh-
The buildings are also of a concern to the
Commissioners because they found by remov-
ing a few, that considerable money and valua-
ble time was involved in removing what was
once a home and is now simply debris. This
same debris attracts rodents, roaches, snakes,
and other unwelcome pests to bother us.
Too, kids are naturally attracted to such
places to plunder among the debris to find
"treasure" and sometimes find only a rusty nail
through their feet. The places are a hazard to
kids and their sense of adventure.
The Commissioners are concerned over the
expense of removing the buildings as well as
the danger of leaving them where they are.
What can be done to recover some of the ex-
pense and make the property properly respon-
sible for the state of his own property and pos-
sible danger it poses to everyone?
Just.the other day we read of cholera out-
breaks in other countries caused by some of
the very same conditions these buildings
threaten. We're not saying we are about to have
a cholera outbreak in Port St. Joe. We probably
won't have. But the things which make cholera
outbreaks are there. It could happen, given the
right set of circumstances.
The City government has toyed with ways to
make the property owner responsible for clear-
ing away the debris in some .manner or other.
We think they are on solid ground to make the
owners responsible but the trick is, how do you
do it, if the owner doesn't live here? How do
you remove a building from a piece of private
property when the owner says leave it alone
and he'll take care of it... and then doesn't?
The City can handle cases where there is, a
resident property owner involved. He can at
least be badgered until he performs to the ben-
efit of the public. In the case of absentee ownr-
ership and resident ownership as well, there is
the old weapon of taking a lien against the
There is very little property inside the City
limits of Port St. Joe which isn't worth the esti-
mated $2-3,000 expenses for removing build-
ings. Of course, there is a ritual which must be
adhered to in order to have the law on your
side when the buildings are torn down, but
that is all in place.
Now, it is a matter of exercising all these
available methods of requiring a property own-
er to pay for cleaning up his own personal
Doesn't Nation Have Enough AIDS?
The government finally found a" court which
would agree with diseased Haitians coming
into the United States as preferred emigrants.
Not only are the Haitians without a country
and diseased, but they have the incurable, ex-
pensive-to-treat, deadly killer, AIDS.
There were about 138 of the aliens brought
into, Palm Beach, about two weeks' ago, who
were formerly under quarantine in-Guantana-
mo Bay, Cuba. They were-there for over a year,
trying to gain entrance to our country. .
along with their deadly disease.
What was wrong with sending them back to
Haiti? Why must we bring them here? We real-
ize they have problems, but we also realize that
bringing them to the United States won't solve
their immediate problem of health. Nobody, or,
nothing can solve that problem.
In the meantime, we are giving our people'
another 138 chances at contracting the dis-
ease. Think what 138 carriers of AIDS can do
to our nation? If we didn't already have more
than enough AIDS, this "seed" of 138 carriers
would number in the thousands in less than
10 years. Since we already have more people
with the disease than we can properly care for,
it only compounds our problem.
The other day, we read where:the center for
contagious disease control in Atlanta, Georgia,
is in possession of the last smallpox virus. It
was once the "AIDS" of the world, causing mil-
lions of people to die. The Atlanta group was
agonizing over whether or not it should destroy
the last smallpox virus known to be on earth.
Annihilate it. Erase smallppx from the earth
once and forever.
Scientists and doctors have waited for this
:moment for the past 2,000 years. Smallpox has
been with us for at least that long; maybe long-
er. The vaccine was first discovered for this dis-
ease way back about 1748 and the disease has
just now been eradicated. That's a long time.
There is no vaccine, yet, for AIDS. Given the
length of time it took to do away with smallpox,
how long can we expect to fight AIDS before it
is a disease no more even after the vaccine
The future isn't very bright for the world in
its dealing with AIDS. We can see nothing but
centuries of combat with the disease, consid-
ering the way in which it is spread.
So, what do we do? We just compound the
number of carriers with a few more to cause it
to spread even faster. With the United States
turning over every stone to find a cure,for this
dreaded disease,.we are encouraging its growth
by allowing at least 138 more carriers into the
country which we could very easily keep out.
And to think, just a few weeks ago, the
school ,system advised parents with children
who had contracted chicken pox to keep their
children at home. And chicken pox isn't even a

m Nou OrdinaryGuitaLo Country music
I SELDOM, IF ever, listen to
country music. Neither am I a
particular fan of country music.
It's not that I don't like country
music, but my musical tastes
lean more to light classical: Irving
Berlin, Debussy, mid '40's type
such as "Stardust", music from
the show, "Oklahoma", "Claire de
Lune" and fare such as that.
I have a fine time listening to
the music broadcast over WKGC,
the Gulf Coast College station.
The, music it broadcasts during
the morning and late afternoon
hours are my kind of music. They
are nothing near country music.
Some people' won't listen to
anything else. It's not music to
them unless Conway Twitty, Ear-
nest Tubb, George Jones, Willie'
Nelson or some other such artist
sings it to them. I can do without
Conway, Earnest, George or Willie
and never miss them. Or, I can
listen to them for a short while.
As a steady diet, however, my
music tastes lean more toward
ences, .earlier. Now, I'm going to
tell you We had aisle seats in the
fifth row at the Opry. We were
right in front' of -the stage and
spent the shortest three hours I
have ever spent. It was a fine

nized were -Porter :Wagoner and'

that I tell you about a trip Fren-

was given to us by our children,
as a Christmas present and we
have just gotten around to taking
it. But, I'm not shy about telling
you, I had some second thoughts
about going, since I'm not all that
fond of country music. Nashville
is aptly known as the "Country
Music Capital of the United
States!' You can't escape it. Mu-
sic is everywhere.
We went and we thor-
oughly enjoyed it. Frenchie told
one of the kids that it "was the
nicest gift you could have given
us." We had the trip, tickets to
the "Grand Ole Opry", to "Opry-
land, USA" and a sightseeing tour
of Nashville, all in one package.
But we enlarged on that and
took side trips to visit the Conser-
vatory in. the Opryland Hotel,

home, The Hermitage, and would
have taken a dinner cruise Satur-
day night, if'there had not been a

The Walking Machine
About three weeks ago; my wife asked me-to buy her a walking
machine. At the time I thought it was a good idea. It is one of those
fancy kinds that shows you. how fast you are walking, how many
S calories you're, burning, and-if you clip a little gadget on your ear
lobe-it will tell you your pulse rate. It also has a timer on it so you
can tell how long it takes you to walk a certain distance, and you
can vary the rate you walk by turning a little knob.
Like I said, I thought it was a good idea at the time, so I bought
Deep down, though, I knew I was making a mistake; just like I
knew when I bought that boat. Just like I almost did when I almost
bought that pool table. And just like I almost did when I almost had
that swimming pool installed In our back yard.
My first Inkling of having made a mistake was about halfway
home from where I bought it. I began to wonder why the person I
bought it from was so glad to "give" it to us, "just to get it out of the
way." Oh, yes, she told us she had a bad hip. That was it. That s
why she wanted to get rid of it She does, too. I know because she is
my sister, but I haven't :noticed her limping one time since my
:check cleared. As a matter of fact, thinking back, I think I saw her
Jumping up and down when we backed out of her driveway with the
machine in the back of my truck.
Well, I thought it was a bargain at the time and certainly some-
thing we just couldn't do without You know, what is one' who loves
exercise to do on these rainy Florida days when one can't get out
and get the proper exercise one needs? You buy 'a walking machine
like I didl "
Needless to say, the whole family was tickled pink. Everyone,
wanted.to walk on the walking machine and everyone wanted to be
first. I decided to wait until I could take my time to walk a couple of
miles In the comfort of our air-conditioned den. When I was alone, I
reasoned, I could walk as far and as fast as I wanted to and no one
would bother me.
It's been, three weeks and I've walked on it one time for 1 1/2
Smiles and I will never set foot on it again... '
Have you ever walked on one of those things? If you haven't,
please feel free to come by the house and try ours. No, I don'twant
to sell it I want it to sit in our den so I can look at It each day and
realize what a fool I was to buy such a contraption. And I'm not
blaming my sister; if it hadn't been her, I would have bought it from
someone else. At least I kept the money in the family.
But back to the walking on the walking machine. I have never
been so bored in my life as I was the day I walked on the machine.

OF TOOTH LOSS
Lack of cavities do not nec-_
essarily indicate a healthy
mouth. In fact, you can lose all
your teeth while never having a
cavity. How? From "periodontal
disease" the greatest single
cause of tooth loss in adults!
Periodontal disease is- a
condition involving gums, the tis-
sues around the teeth, and even
the supporting bone in ad-
vanced cases. Some of the
symptoms are loosening. 'of
teeth, or bleeding, red, flabby or
In most cases, there is little
or no pain at first, making it easy
to convince yourself that there is
nothing really wrong. Be aware
of a passive attitude.'It is esti-
mated that 95% of the popula-
tion has some kind of gum dis-
ease at some time in life, mostly
after age 35.
There are home care regi-
mens to prevent periodontal dis-
ease and dental treatments to
stop it. But there is only one way
to catch the problem. Get treat-
ment in time before serious
damage is done.
Prepared as a public ser-
vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of:

Watch for Poison Ivy, Oak & Sulnac While Walking
Summer is a great time to en-
joy things like hiking arid camp-
ing. But, before you go tromping
off into the beckoning woods, you
should familiarize yourself with
some of the more common poi-
sonous plants. A little prepara-
tion could save you days of un-
comfortable after-effects resulting
from contact with such noxious
Usually, we think of poison-
ous plants as species found only
.in the woods. Actually, they're
everywhere. In this article, I will
describe three common poison-
ous plants-poison ivy, poison
oak, and sumac--and tell you
where you might find them. My
information on poisonous plants
was provided by Extension Urban
Horticulturist Dr. Robert Black,
of the University of Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
NoW is a good time to be dis-
cussing poisonous plants, be-
cause the sap of these leafy ene-
mies is most abundant during
the summer. It's usually the sap
which causes the problems. Poi-
sonous plants can be divided Into
two groups; those which cause
skin irritation and those which
cause internal distress and, in
rare cases, even death. -
Many factors influence the
poisonous nature of a particular
kind of plant. The poison may be-
,dispersed throughout a plant, or
4it may be localized in a specific
*plant part, such as the roots, ber-
-ries, or seeds. The amount of pol-
soning in a plant may vary even
:among plants of the same species
,depending on the time of year,
weather conditions, and the soil.
Reactions vary among people, de-
pending on their age, health, and
sensitivity to the poison.
Poison ivy may have a variety
of leaf shapes. But one identifying
feature remains constant-the
leaves always come in ,three's,
with two of them directly opposite
each other. White waxy flowers

The big toe is the site of
one of the more common frac-
tures that are treated by the
podiatrist, caused when a
heavy object falls on the toe.
The big toe is vulnerable to
fractures in such cases be-,
cause there is a lack of pro-
tective tissue. The bone sec-
tion that extends to the front
of the toe is covered only by a
thin layer of skin .at the bot-
tom edge of the toenail. -
Someone whose job or, pro-
Jects at home pose risks that
heavy objects might fall on
the feet obviously should
wear protective shoes. Yet,
only one in four people who

Gems from My Garden
[Cloud Is a former resident of
'Port St. Joe, educated in local
schools and is a son of Mr. and
Mrs. Charles Cloud. He is a minis-
ter and an author.]
Last spring, I planted my first
vegetable garden. Started small-
row of beans, row of squash, row
-of'peas, row of cucumbers and to-
matoes. But soil. does something
to' me. When I seethings start to'
sprout and grow, I get energized.
So, in my exuberance, five rows
became 10, and then 15. Besides,
it was spring; weather cool, grass
slow, and weeds minimal. But as
the weather warmed. my energy
waned, and the grass and weeds
grew faster than the garden. But
what had started as a pleasure
soon turned into a pain.

Violent crime in Florida in-
creased during' 1992, rising 1.9%
as compared with 1991 figures.
!11 According to the 1992 Crime In
Florida annual report released by
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, a .violent crime oc-
Og urred every 3' minutes and 16.,1,
Seconds last year.as compared to
one every 3 minutes and 19 sec-
ond in 1991. Violent crime has
grown 72.5% In the last 10 years,
93,406 in 1982 compared to
i,61,137 in 1992. At the same
time the crime rate (number of in-
Sdex crimes per 100.000 popula-
tion) fell 3.2% last year. FDLE
Commissioner Tim Moore said.
'The drop in last year's crime rate
is a turn in the right direction,
however, Florida likely will again
lead the nation In this category.
The level of crime continues to be
intolerable especially the violence
that is terrorizing our cities and
communities. Now is certainly not
the time to relent on funding
criminal justice and public safety
Of the 1,454.682 victims of
crime during 1992. 1,081,64;
were persons. This Is a 4.0% in-.
crease over 1991 total of persons
reported as victims. "Of these,
188,483 persons were injured or
killed as a result of crimes last,.
year. There were 89,025 Juvenile
victims in 1992. This compares to
80,739 in 1991. Nonresidents

(DM)-Dine away the summer food doldrums with "Bayside Pasta Salad."
This colorful and delicious entree features small shell macaroni combined
with tiny bay shrimp and tender peas and carrots. The secret to this salad's
lively flavor is the dressing of snappy pineapple: and lemon juices, grated gin-
ger and Kikkoman Lite Soy Sauce. While low in sodium, lite soy sauce
retains all of its flavor enhancing qualities because the salt is extracted fol-
lowing the natural brewing process. In this recipe, it unites the zesty juices to
perfectly accent the salad ingredients: Low in calories, fat and sodium, this
healthful salad can't be beat for its great taste or ease of preparation.
BAYSIDE PASTA SALAD

drain well. Combine macaroni with peas and carrots and shrimp in large
bowl; set aside. Blend pineapple juice, lite soy sauce, lemon juice, oil, sugar,-

sionally. .. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
