mission began the budget process
yesterday, by declaring its tenta-

budget, recognizing the fact they

Expecting a reduction of

ceived a designated "roll back
rate" of 4.9908 mills. The Com-
mission tentatively established

"Our solid waste costs have increased from $200,000 five years ago
to. a half million dollars today. We're going to have to do something
about this within the coming year," Mayor Pate said. Solid waste is
something the City has to deal with, it won't go away according to
an- increase of 0.0205 mills to
generate the same amount of rev-
enue from ad valorem taxes..
The budget for the new fiscal
year reflects some increased ex-
penses which the Commission ex-
pects to fund without an increase
in taxes. New expenditures in-
-$25,000 for the new Senior
-$20,000 reserve for compli-
ance with the Americans with
-$40,000 for a new Reserve
'for Contingencies account.
-$63,207 for a new Cash
Carry Forward account.
-$26,705 to fund a pay in-
crease for City employees.
There is also $100,000 bud-
geted in the General Fund for in-
stalling central air conditioning
and heat in the Centennial Build-
ing. This expense will be funded
by a state grant.
The proposed budget "was
.prepared to fund reasonable ser-
vices at a reasonable level while
establishing adequate reserves to
fund the several items in the bud-
get without additional ad valorem
taxes," according to City Auditor
and clerk, Jim Maloy.
The biggest single expense for
the City this past year and ex-
pected to be next year as well, is
the solid waste program. Mayor
Frank Pate observed, "The solid
waste expense has grown from
$200,000 five years ago, to a half
million dollars today."
Other than the renovation ot
buildings for other purposes, the
largest increase in expenditures
is in the Instruction.budget item.
This item reflects a $166,172 in-
crease over the previous year. The
Instruction budget itemn has in-
creased from $5,636,285 to

At the end of the budget year,,
the district will not have much
money left to begin the 94-95
school year.. Fund balances have
been set at $150,000, running
$100,000 closer to "empty" when
the fiscal year officially runs out.
S.. Port St. Joe High School Bandmaster
Bouington Is New
Mitch Bouington, 25, was employed this week by the
Gulf County School Board to fill the position of Bandmas-
ter at Port St. Joe High School.
The son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Bouington, the Band-
master is a native of Port St. Joe, having spent seven years
in the band program before his graduation in 1985. After
graduation, Bouington received a music degree from Gulf
Coast Community College and then enrolled at Troy State
University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Music
Education degree. He received his Master of Music Educa-
tion this summer at Troy State. While a student at TSU, he
gained something besides music degrees. He also gained a
Bouington has reported to work and says he hopes to
restore the band to its past status of size and respect of the
community. "I remember when the community was proud
of the band. I was a part of it. I hope to get back to that
point," Bouington said.
The Bandmaster is pointing toward that goal by presid-
ing over a band camp beginning August 2, for members
and potential members of the Band of Gold.
Pate said the Commission is
considering some.changes in this
operation, designed to produce
more revenue to reduce the ne-
cessity for supplementing the op-
eration rith more tax money.
'We don't know yet what that
increase will be, but we're pon-
dering several avenues of relief,"
Pate said. Pate gave credit for
some of the increase in expenses
to the fact that many residents
throughout the County bring
their solid waste to Port St. Joe to
dump in public and commercial
The solid waste department is
running a tab of $539,815, with
approximately $200,000 being
borne by ad valorem taxes. Pate
said the Commission is looking at
every avenue of relief, Including
privatization of the garbage col-
lection service. 'To be perfectly
candid about the situation, we
are also looking at increased fees,
once a week pick-up and several
other avenues we may follow to
reduce tax expense," Pate said.

'THE NOW DEFUNCT Port St. Joe Jaycees would be proud of
their organization if they were still operating. It was that small
but vocal group which made the most noise, in public, about the
need for a new bridge serving land traffic across the Gulf County
Canal at Highland View.
*They called to the attention of the general public the deplora-
ble condition of the old bridge. every time it would become stuck,
blocking traffic for hours on end. They'made sure The Star knew
about the matter of inconveniences to the general public, every
time it happened. They wrote letters, made phone calls, paid
visits to politicians and used the influence of their organization
to get a replacement for the cranky old draw bridge which served
the waterway crossing until June of this year. '
IT WAS THE LOCAL politicians and people of influence who
quietly-dropped a gentle nudge or threat here and there which fi-
nally got the feat accomplished of securing a new bridge.
But, the Jaycees, without a doubt, no arguments here, were
the "cheerleaders" for Gulf-.County which whipped up public
concern enough to give the pressure being applied sufficient,
public opinion approval to get the project accomplished.
It saddens us that we no longer have a Jaycee chapter here
in Port St. Joe. Their demise has left us with a dearth of young
leaders coming along to do the legwork which always needs done
and to fill leadership slibes on down the road. We never really
appreciated just how much the Jaycees prepared our young
leaders, getting them ready to serve.
WE GIVE OUR men of influence-past and present-in Port
St. Joe, credit. They were successful in securing the fine bridge
we enjoy so-much now. They used up their "points" with state of-
ficials. They went places and carried reams of facts with them.
They talked to officials and -they called on friendships. It's also
interesting to see that some of these present-day men of such in-
fluence, so much pull where it is needed, all these important
contacts and acquaintances; most of these men were a part of
the Jaycees when they were so active here in Port St. Joe.
We're glad the bridge is finally here. We appreciate the con-
venience of heading west and not dreading the crossing at High-
land View, where we have all been delayed so often. We would be
just as proud to see some of our young men band together and
get another Jaycee chapter started. We're going to need motivat-
ed young men in the future. Heck, we need them right nowl

THE GULF COUNTY Commission is voluntarily considering
the question of whether or not to re-apportion the commission
districts in the county. It's Florida law that every county in the
state is required to consider the internal change every 10 years.
Actually, it is required every first year after the decade has,
changed. The change must be considered or become a reality in
only odd numbered years to avoid clashing with the term of an
Gulf County has gone through the throes of re-apportioning
twice and both times had to be drug kicking and screaming
through the process by the courts. To say that Gulf County has
resisted re-apportionment in the past is the understatement of
We don't know whether the realigning Is needed at this time
or not. We do know there is no burning movement inside the
county to do so. Actually the subject is sort of ho-hum at this
time. People are pretty satisfied with the alignment of the several
districts as they now stand. Some people ask why fix it if it isn't
IT IS REFRESHING to see the county government take upon
themselves, voluntarily, the task of examining the matter to de-
termine whether or not we really need an act of re-
apportionment. It isn't an easy task nor is it Just something one
does and nobody notices. Almost everybody is inconvenienced
for a period of time after re-apportionment. For instance, as one
Commissioner noted last week at their regular meeting, 'There
are still citizens who are unsure of which district they should

in 1985. That re-apportionment, too, was dictated by the courts.
Then just recently a mini re-apportionment was accomplished
with the voting precincts. causing turmoil again.
If we do, indeed, need to be re-apportioned, let's do it and get
it over with. If we don't find it absolutely necessary, let it alone!

when I was a small boy of about
six or seven years of age.
We lived across the street
from 'a hastily erected frame
church building which had long
since ceased to be the host for
worship services. A couple had
been traveling through our town,
headed for California in a con-
verted hearse. They set up house-
keeping in that abandoned
church while they awaited the
floods along their way to subside.
I remember them so well be-
cause, to me, they seemed to be
so old. The mah was suffering
from tuberculosis which was why
they were going to California.
Every morning, right' after
breakfast, the woman would
cross the street to our house, to
-borrow our Tulsa Ddily World to
read the latest news about the
floods along their rout.e.

iMY NEXT EXPERIENCE
with a flood was here in Port st
Joe during a hurricane.
The hurricane struck at night
and was subsiding near 8:00 a.m.
the next morning. I had stuck it
out while my family had gone in-
land to safety. I was coming to
town to sort of check out the
damage and start doing a few
things to get. a paper out, when I
neared the Motel. I looked into
the Bay and saw the pier was
about gone in the high seas.,
which were continuing to rise.
The water was up on the land
close to the normal shoreline.
I headed for the office to get a
camera to niake some pictures of
the rough water and came direct-
ly back to 'photograph the break-

time to wait for this ceremony. but we're here today to mark the
successful efforts or a man who has left his footprints through-
out Gulf County." Senator Thomas said.
RIBBON CUT, PLAQUE UNVEILED
After the words of dedication for the structure, an entourage.
headed by Amelia Tapper and Trish Warriner made their way to
the crown of the bridge to officially cut the ribbon, declaring the
George Tapper Bridge open to traffic.
Trish Tapper Warriner and her husband, David, unveiled a
plaque at the end of the bridge, carrying its name. One of the
plaques stands at either end of the bridge.
After the ribbon cutting, John Miller. secretary of the Port
Authority, presented Mrs. Tapper and Mrs. Warriner with
"om Page 1
plaques commemorating the dedication ceremonies. Trish War-
riner responded for the Tapper family, recalling the dreams her
father had for Gulf County and Port St. Joe and the fond memo-:
ries she had of Gulf County. 'Thank you. for the fine tribute you
have paid my father here today." she said.
The entire ceremony lasted less than 45 minutes, but no-
body seemed to mind the heat and dust the breeze was swirling
about the crowd assembled under the large tent. The traffic
didn't even become edgy for being held up 10 minutes for the
ribbon-cutting part of the ceremony. Once the ribbon was cut'
and traffic was allowed to cross the bridge, vehicles crossed in a
bumper-to-bumper stream for a full 15 minutes: attesting the:
very real need for such a facility on Highway 98. where the Gulf'
County Canal empties into St. Joseph Bay.

Dream of Becoming Nurse
Is a Reality Through JTPA
The mission of the JTPA staff
at Gulf Coast Community College
and Haney Technical Center is to
lead its students toward higher
aspirations, higher expectations,
and higher performance in order,
to provide a competitive edge for.
the Florida Panhandle. As one
looks toward the year 2000, the
need for higher levels of analytical
and computational skills ,will be
made more profound with the
changing nature of Jobs.
In keeping with this mission,
JTPA served over 500 partici-
.pants in the classroom training
program. Many of these students
have completed training and are
successfully employed with comrn-
panies in Northwest Florida.
One example of a JTPA suc-
cess story is Drema Hess. Hess
was raised in Detroit's harsh in-
ner city. Determined to make life
better for herself and her four
children, she worked shoveling
asphalt in order to raise enough
money to move her family to Flor-
ida. During this move, her car
broke down in Mexico Beach, so
she decided to make it her home.
Hess' dream for the past 12
years was to become a nurse. Fi-
nally, last June, that wish came
True. She completed a satellite
course at Eastpoint on the Li-
censed Practical *Nursing Pro-
gram, sponsored by Haney Tech-
nical Center, which JIPA funded.
'When I found out that I met
JTPA's criteria and would be en--
rolled in the L.P.N. program, I.
cried. I knew that I would suc-
ceed because I wanted this so
bad,', revealed Hess.
Hess received the highest
clinical grade point average in her
class. She was also rated highest
Sin clinical performance, which in-
cludes actual hands-on-work
with patients, machines, chart-
ing, and documentation.
Now, she is employed as an
L.P.N. at Bay St. Joseph Care
Center. In thisposition, she cares
for 30 residents. She enjoys help-
ing the residents with their

Hess added, "I heard about
JTPA through an article I read in

counselor, Sandle Scott, told me
all I needed to do to start my ca-
reer as an L.P.N. She also gave

In last week's The Star, Mr. Mathes from Wewahitchka wrote
about the problems in disciplining high school children and how
they plan to handle the situation for the next school year. The prob-
lem he outlines has been related to me over and over by my teacher
friends. Dedicated teachers can no longer teach because all their
time has to be taken up with maintaining order. Everyone suffers
when this happens. The children who are anxious to learn become
frustrated and some of them become behavior problems.
No problem is ever solved overnight This article, is directed to
the parents of small children. I would like to enter a plea for you to
work hard to instruct your children in appropriate behavior and
manners. Never expect too much for the age of your. child, but even
1 1/2-2 year old children can learn to say "please" and "thank
Small children learn more by example and consistency than by
being forced to do things. If a parent hits a child to make him be-
1 have, the child learns to solve problems by fighting and misbehav-
lor. When the authority figure at home Is reasonable and under-.
standing, the child learns to be respectful, reasonable, and
Small children should learn the difference between inside be-
havior and outside behavior. It is all right to run, play, and yell
when outside, but, they have to learn to walk, speak softly, and lis-
ten when inside.
Children should be allowed to be expressive, and they should
be listened to with respect. This develops self-esteem and makes
them feel good about themselves.
When parents have laid the groundwork carefully arid children
come to school ready to listen and learn, much can be accom-
plished. When there is more and more to learn everyday, it is a
shame for even one day of school to be disrupted or lost because
someone in the class is misbehaving. Teachers can only be expected
to teach if parents send them children ready to learn.

A tighter stand towards discipline took a step closer to reality
when the School Board reviewed the written plans submitted by the
principals and gave a green light to begin implementation this fall'.
There were- comments to the effect that some favorable remarks
were heard from the public after last week's column, which was
heartening. Only a few will rise against improvement in the disci-
pline in our schools, and those will be parents whose students start
showing up at home sooner than they have in the past.

or at least those who will allow,us to teach them, evenif they're not
too thrilled about being at school. We can't teach someone who re-
fuses to be taught and instead views school as a playground. One of
the most precious things we offer in this country is a free basic edu-
cation for anyone who will take it, but it's time we face the fact that
there are some young people who choose not to be educated in the
system we can afford to offer. .

If you have any encourage-
ment from being united with
Christ,, if any comfort from his
love. if any fellowship with the
Spirit, if any tenderness and
compassion, then make my joy
complete by being like-minded,
having the same love, being
one in spirit and purpose.
"Being like-minded" was un-
doubtedly an important idea to
the apostle Paul. He uses. the
phrase ten times in Philippians
alone. And 23 of the,26 times the
phrase is used'in the New Testa-
ment are in Paul's writings. Liter-
ally, the phrase means "to think,
the same thing." But what exactly,
doesPaul mean by this .concept?
Many commentators suggest
that it means tb think not so
much in an intellectual. sense,
but it involves emotions, atti-
tudes, and will. Paul is not plead-
ing for drab uniformity of
thought. He is also not insisting
on everyone holding in common a
particular opinion. Such a de-
mand by its very nature would
contribute to dissension. We all
have experienced the, lesson of
the magnet--opposltes do seem
to attract-but how powerfully
like poles of personality repel.'
Being like-minded is the
beautiful phenomenon of a total
inward attitude of mind or dispo-
sitioh of will that strives after that
one thing which is greater than
any human t.uth. Such an atti-
tude cannot be characterized by

are not limited to coastal areas.
Of the world's approximately
four-thousand palm. varieties.
about 500 native and imported
types are found in the "sunshine

the Cabbage Palm. My informa-
tion on palms was provided by
Extension Urban Horticulture
Specialist Dr. Robert Black.
The Cabbage Palm is found in
all parts of our state, except the
extreme western portion. It's an
upright, single-trunked palm with
fan-shaped leaves. You can easily
recognize this tree ,by the criss-
crossed design along its trunk.
These crisscrosses are called
"boots.", They are what's left after
decayed leaf stalks .fall off the
palm a process, that continues
until very old age.
Other common single-
trunked varieties Include the
Washiington Palm, Royal, Queen,
Canary Island, and Pygmy Palms.
The Washington Palm i very tall.
'with a slender trunk and fah
shaped leaves. It's often seen
along residential streets. The Roy-
al Palm is a spectacular species.
Its massive trunk resembles a
concrete pillar, and it has a green
collar that extends down from the
top. Royal Palms may exceed 80
feet in height. The Queen Palm is
a tall-growing variety with a
smooth trunk and feathery
leaves. The Canary Island Date
Palm, which also has feathery
leaves, some-what resembles a
Pineapple. It's another variety
used for lining streets. The Pygmy
Palm. also a Date variety, is' a
dwarf species with beautiful dark
Besides these popular single-
trunked palms, there are quite a
few that grow ih clusters, with
several stems or trunks. Probably
the.most common of these cluster
types is the Areca (ah-REEK-ah)
Palm. It's a low-giowing' variety
with smooth, slim, yellow-rtnged
stems and .feathery foliage. The
Areca is well. adapted for either
indoor or outdoor. use..
The Paurotis (paw-ROW-Us),
which Is more commonly called
the Saw Cabbage Palm, is found
in swamps'and undrained soils of
extreme South Florida. Like the
Barrier Dunes -
Sea Cliffs -
San Bias Plantati(
Gulf Front Lots -
Areca, the slender trunks of this
species usually grow in large
clumps. The Saw Cabbage Palm
has fan shaped leaves, and may
reach a height of 40 'feet.
Yet another cluster type is
the Rhapis (RAPE-Is) Palm. It's a
low growing, fan leaved variety.
having many reed-like stems.
These palms, which prefer semi-
shaded locations, make very good
tub specimens. Rhapis Palms
also may be used for group plant-
In addition to upright and
cluster type palms, there are va-
rieties-such as the Saw Palmet-
to-which grow quite close to the
ground. The Saw Palmetto is
found throughout Florida. The
. runk of this native species usu-
ally almost parallels the soil sur-
face. However, occasional speci-
mens have Inclined, or even
We've mentioned only a few
palms that can be used as orna-
mentals in Florida. There are
many more-both native and Im-
ported. From this wide selection,
you're sure to find some that are
well-suited to your environment
and landscape needs. Try some
palms. They add an enjoyable.
