TRIMNotices Ready to Mail
Appearances Are That Taxes Will Show No Increase
Gulf County's TRIM notices are going into
the mail Friday morning, according to Kesley
Colbert. Gulf County Property Appraiser.
Colbert says this year's notices appear to
have every taxing authority in.-Gulf County
holding the line on taxes this fiscal year.
"I see no appreciable tax increases by
anybody. Everyone should receive the same
tax bill as they did last year unless they have
made. Improvements-4o- their--propertyr- Gol-
bert said. Colbert stressed he was merely the
one selected to prepare the notices. "I had
nothing to do with the amounts on them."
The Property Appraiser prepares the notices
for the taxing authorities in the County: the
Gulf County Commission, the Gulf County
School Board, the City of Port St. Joe. the
City of Wewahitchka and the Northwest Flor-
ida Water Management District.
The notices contain the taxing amount of
each of the five taxing authorities based on
figures received on their budgets for the com-
ing year. It represents the maximum each
authority can levy without first being re-
quired to hold public hearings and advertise
their intent to increase taxes. The proposed
taxes may be reduced without further notifi-
cation to the public. The TRIM notices con-
. tain the Information as to what taxes will be.,
-if there are-no changes'before Octeober.: --
The TRIM notice exercise was adopted a
few years ago to make sure each property /
owner knew what his taxes were proposed to
be before he received the notice and outlines
the method for filing his objections, if he has.
Colbert says his office staff has prepared
13,000 of the notices which will be mailed to
; Residents of Woodward Ave-
Snue were disturbed last night, as
they brought their problems to
I the City Commission for a solu-
tion. Led by Cawthon Williams
and John Fadio, the group of
about 25 residents from the
neighborhood didn't like the idea
that a multi-family structure was
being planned for their neighbor-
Williams said that it had,
been his impression that the
street was zoned for single family
dwellings. "I have lived there for
30 years and I thought it was
strictly for one dwelling to the
lot." Williams said.
The Commission first thought
Williams was correct in his as-
sumption, but a perusal of the
building and zoning code, by at-
torney William J. Rish at the
meeting revealed that the east
side of Woodward was, indeed.,
zoned for single family dwellings.
The west side of the street al-
.lowed multi-family dwellings, but
regulated their height to no more
than 35 feet.
Mayor Frank Pate told Wil-
liams and the group there was
nothing they could do but at-
tempt to change the ordinance.
which was difficult because the
state's new Comprehensive :Plan
included the City's zoning code.
'We have to go through the state
agencies to make a change like
this," Pate said. "Our hands are
tied," he remarked.
Fadio said, "We're probably
stuck with this building, but will
you attempt to change It to stop
any future multi-family build-
Pate said, "If the Commission
goes along with your request, we
can attempt a change. Personally,
I think it ought to be changed.
We can't change the zoning in
time to stop this building.
though. The developer probably
already has his building permit."
The residents of the street
formally requested the Commis-
sion to change their zoning to sin-
gle family dwellings on both sides
of Woodward Avenue between
10th and 16th Streets. The Com-
mission unanimously agreed to
start the process. of change in mo-
CHANGE NAME OF CENTER
Mayor Pate advised the Com-
mission they needed to change
the official name of the proposed
Senior Center, scheduled for con-
struction between 6th and 7th
Street, in Forest Park. Pate said
the center needs to be designated
the "Senior Citizens Recreation
Area," in keeping .with the re-
quirements of -the deed for the
property, which was made availa-
ble for the center.

oard WKs Medical Examiner
In a special meeting Tuesday
afternoon, the Gulf County Com-
mission agreed to cooperate with
a consortium of counties from the
14th Judicial Circuit in financing
a Medical Examiner's operation.
The Circuit has been without
the services of a regular Medical
Examiner's office for a little more
lthian a year..after the resignation
of former M.E.. Dr. William Sy-
bers. Counties of the Circuit have
been using examiners from Pen-
sacola. Fort Walton Beach and
Tallahassee -for required autop-
sies on an interim basis.
Administrative assistant Lar-
ry Wells, who with Commission
Chairman Nathan Peters, has
been negotiating along with repre-
sentatives from the other
counties In the Circuit, told the
Board Tuesday they had reached
tentative agreement, and recom-
mended the Commission accept
Wells said the tentative agree-
ment would cost Gulf County a
guaranteed $13,129 per year,
with Bay County furnishing the
location for the M.E. offices.
"This is .a bargain,' Wells ..
said."'We have been paying an av-
erage of over $11,000 a year,
which is bound to increase with
any new arrangement. The charge
will be a set amount, no matter
how many autopsies, we have.
The charge is based on a popula-
tion basis for Gulf County and
the other counties in the Circuit
Peters, who had to be absent
from the final bargaining session
for the matter, endorsed Wells'
proposal as being "a good deal for
Gulf County." The Commission
agreed unanimously to accept the
Wells said other representa-
tives were also making their of-
fers to the other county boards in
the Circuit and if they accept-as
they're expected to do-the 14th
Circuit will once again have the"'
services of a Medical Examiner.
Wells also advised the ..Com-
mission that the State of Florida
S"is getting serious about emergen-
cy preparedness following Hurri-
cane Andrew." Wells said the

Chamber Making Second Try at'Main Streef' Designation
The Port St. Joe/Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce will make a second attempt at se-
curing the "Main Street" designation from the
Florida Department of State for the City of Port
St. Joe in Winter Garden next Thursday. The
Chamber attempted to secure designation to
the Main Street program a year ago but failed
to capture the appointment. Appointments are
made only once each year.
As was the case last year, there will be three
slots open and five applications have been
made for the self improvement assistance thus
far. Applications were to be presented by the
middle of August, with Port St. Joe's applica-
tion already filed. The application contains a
proposed budget for the program, the name of
a director and several goals of the Main Street
program, should your city be selected. Port St.
Joe was beaten out by the City of Marianna last
Poit St. Joe has an excellent opportunity to
receive the appointment this year. The three
slots are usually divided up with one slot going

Port St. Joe has an excellent opportunity to receive the appointment

NOT A GRANT PROGRAM
"Main Street" is not a grant program, but
rather is a technical assistance vehicle. Main
Street cities receive up to three years of techni-
cal assistance from its agency. It Is a self-help
program in which small but positive improve-
ments are made.
Main Street is a community-wide revitaliza-
tion designed to emphasize local ownership,
personal service and a sense of community
among the entire population. Accomplishments
of Main Street are accompanied by a sense of
'We did it ourselves!"
Florida's version of Main Street differs
slightly from the national program, but it fol-
lows the national pattern in that it is locally op-
erated, utilizing trained experienced advisors
provided by the organization. A local communi-
ty must be organized, have a Main Street bud-
get and have someone designated to direct its

merce has been designated to head up the pro-

with that job description. Ms. Mahlkov will be
attending the Main Street designation meeting
Thursday, along with Chamber administrative
secretary, Tamara Laine, and Chamber presi-
dent, Ralph Roberson. They will be making
Port St. Joe's presentation next Thursday
morning before the state Main Street appoint-
ment committee. They will be presenting a slide
presentation, narration on reasons the commu-
nity desires membership and listing the histori-
cal background of the City as the qualification
for membership in Main Street. The Committee
will make its decision before the day is over.
FLORIDA MAIN STREET
Florida Main Street, was initiated in 1985
and is administered by the Bureau of Historic
Preservation, Florida Department of State. Its
purpose is to build a positive image among the,
community and its citizens, create job opportu-
nities through revitalization of local businesses,
save tax dollars by stopping erosion of valua-
tions and preserve the integrity of the commu-
To illustrate how important the Main Street
membership is, it provides tremendous influ-
ence for the approval of grants or government
assistance when requested, because it shows
the community is interested enough in its im-
provement to do something for themselves.

Don't Be So
WHITE CITY FOLKS will have to wait a bit longer before
they have their central water supply installed. There has been a
slight delay. As TV puts it, Excuse us for a moment, we seem to
have developed technical difficulties.
White City must now take a step backward, wait two weeks,
and then try again to come up with a construction firm who can
meet the criteria required by FmHA. Some are groaning over that
situation. Even County Commissioners have had a few choice
words for the cold and calculated way in which FmHA turned
down the two bids they could afford, merely on a technicality.
It's ironic, too,,that the Commissioner doing the most groan-
ing over the delay is the one who did the most filibustering over
wording in a guarantee which he felt failed to protect the County
in a manner which he thought it should merely a month ago.
The guarantee spelled out what it would do, but the Commis-
sioner wanted to stop payment of an invoice because he thought
the guarantee would not completely cover expenses of any fail-
ure of the product in the future. The Board, by the way, had
agreed to the guarantee in a previous meeting. His eagerness to
get the service installed is commendable, but let's not get so im-
WE'RE NOT ARGUING the propriety of the Commission's
past moves or motives. All we're getting at is; there should be.no
rushing up of a process merely because one in a leadership posi-
tion wishes to see action.
The rules requiring adequate: bonding [performance insu-
rance] on a public job were designed to protect the people, who
must ultimately bear the brunt of any costs or inconveniences
:incurred, if the project goes sour.
True, the Commission and the construction firm had come to
,a meeting of the minds on the White City project, but it's good
-they were forced to delay while the regulations governing .the'
construction firm-any construction firm-were met. Both the
Commission and the firm knew what the requirements were. If
they had'met them-in the first place, we could be building a wa-
ter system today, the construction firm would be receiving pay-
ment for work performed and White City would not be faced with
another delay in receiving treated water.
One should build in or require adequate safeguards to pro-
Atect the public and then one should not get impatient when they
'are not met.
A NEWS RELEASE FROM Tallahassee the other day, con-
trained perhaps the most stupid sentence ever written. It said,
"Hoping to protect dwindling mullet harvests without "crippling"
the commercial fishing industry, Gov. Lawton Chiles and the
Florida Cabinet sent the Marine Fisheries Ccmmission back to
the drawing board Thursday to write another new mullet rule."
Our question is simply this; how, is the state going to curtail
the taking of mullet without crippling the fishing industry? To
merely curtail the product is to affect the industry., When the
S Cabinetiitled, no mullet fishing on weekends, they crippled the
industry. If they prohibit fishing every Qohg wee.cthey will crip-
ple the industry. If they adopt the fishermen's own solution, pro-
posed to the Cabinet last week, they will cripple the industry.
Any reduction in fishing will cripple the industry.
Notice we didn't place quotations around the word cripple.
The Cabinet did, intimating that the advent of crippling was only
a mirage in the mind of fishermen. We left the quotes from
around the word cripple, because we understand that reducing
the number of days fishermen would be allowed to fish would
certainly cripple the fishing industry. No mirage about it!,
IF THE OPEN DAYS allowed for taking mullet were not a
threat to the fisherman's livelihood, we wonder why they are
scratching and clawing in an effort to protect their product? Is it
that they like to slosh around in the coldwater so. much, drag-
ging a heavy net, knee. deep in slimy, smelly fish? If they can
make a living, working every other week, why push to work every
W Week for the same income? If the mullet were being depleted,
why hasn't the price gone out of sight? Why do the fishermen
have to work every week, every available day, just to make a liv-
ing? You must have volume to make a living in mullet; not just a
We wonder if maybe the Seafood Producers don't need to in-
vite Gov. Chiles and the Cabinet to spend a couple of days in the
Bay with a net strung out to be hauled in, with icy water slosh-
ing over into their waders and receive the pay at the end of the
day for their mullet catch. It could be they might find some new,
fast friends in the Governor and Cabinet for their cause.

Tid-Bits ofUnimportant Things
S I take back some of the things I said about women in last week's
article, although I have yet to see a hog fly. I'm sticking by what I
said about men, I don't care if some of them are not true.
Wal-Mart is building a "Super-Store" In Chipley, at the intersec-
tion of Hwy. #77 and 1-10. Some of the folks up there are happy
as can be, but most of the merchants are hopping mad. It's a
double-edgedsword, and Wal-Mart owns the sword. This is pret-
ty important to the people of Chipleyl
SAn article I read somewhere said that Ted Danson Is about to
marry Whoopie Goldberg. I think Ted spent too much time in the
"Cheers" on the TV show by the same name. Whoopie is a good
actress, but if there were an "Ugly Woman" contest, she would be
a strong contender. I don't know what Ted's problem is, but it
probably has something to do with his vision.
as Well, President Clinton (Bill, not Hillary) finally got his tax bill
through the House and Senate and it has been signed into law.
One Senator stated that a lot of people were going to lose their
Jobs because of the bill and President,Clinton would be one of
them. I agree.
My list ofthings I need to do around the house is still here on my

missed a wonderful program. Many of our leading:citizens were
in it, and: they all did a great job of promoting Gulf County and

Lee Smith. Why, those two youngsters could be TV actors; and
good ones .

Card of Thanks
The children of Mrs. Mary Pe-
ters and the late Mr. Nathan Pe-
ters, Sr., of Port St. Joe, Florida
would like to thank the residents
of the community and the many
family and friends, near and far,
for their kindness and expres-
sions of sympathy during the re-
cent death of our loved one.
Words can never express our
true feelings and thoughts of
gratitude for your sharing, time,
and efforts-stopping by to say
kind words, sharing old times
with the family; cooking the won-
derful dishes of food, and sending
flowers and plants. We do sin-
cerely thank you. ..
We do not want to overlook
any act of kindness shown to us
during our bereavement. This is
one small way of trying to reach
out and say thanks :to so many
friends, who for a number of rea-
sons, we 'might have missed in
the rush of trying to deal with so
many things during our sorrow.
For all of your kindnesses,
please keep in mind that we are
truly grateful'. Port St. Joe is
home to us. No matter where
we've been and where we'll go,.
there is no place 'like the people of
Port St Joe who show such car-
ing. Again, thanks to each of you
who shared, in your .own special
way, an expression of sympathy.
The Children of Mrs. Mary Peters
and the Late Nathan Peters, Sr.
Card of Thanks
Perhaps you sent a lovely
card or sat quietly with us in a
chair. Perhaps you sent a floral
piece. If so, we saw it there. Per-
haps you spoke the 'kindest
words as any friend could say.
Perhaps you were not there at
all-Just prayed for us that day.
Whatever you did to console our
hearts, thank you so much, what-
ever the part.

Governor, Cabinet, Tell FMC to'Try Again" on Mullet
The Florida Cabinet deferred
any action on the Marine Fisher-
ies Commission proposal to place
curbs on the mullet fishing rule.
The Cabinet sent the MFC back
to the drawing board to come up
with another rule which would
not have such a "crippling" effect
on the fishing industry.
The MFC had proposed to
Governor Chiles and the Cabinet
last Tuesday, that mullet fishing
be banned every other week from
October 12 through January 21.
a move aimed at preserving 35
percent of the mullet population
long enough for the fish to
spawn. The ban targets the fish's
spawning season, when the fish
carry roe that makes them more
valuable than usual because roe
is an expensive delicacy overseas.
A previous rule, promulgated
The MFC had proposed to Governor Chiles
'and the Cabinet last Tuesday that mullet fish-
ing be banned every other week from October
12 through January 21, a move aimed at pre-
serving 35 percent of the mullet population
long enough for the fish to spawn.
by the MFC and approved by the
Cabinet, bans mullet fishing on
week ends from October through
January. Fishermen claimed, in
testimony before the' Cabinet,
that the proposed week on and
week off arrangement would place
a definite hardship on them. They
proposed, instead, a three day
closure each week from July
through January and a 10-day
closure from Christmas Eve to
January 2, the peak of the roe
season. Their claim was that their
proposal would achieve the same
results as the MFC proposal and
still allow the fishermen to work.
Elmo Sander, a Gulf County
commercial fisherman, told the
Cabinet, "Our proposal is. the
lesser of the two evils," but would
achieve the same results and be
more acceptable to commercial
Chiles and the Cabinet mem-
bers were sympathetic to the
commercial fishermen but insist-
ed on a 35-percent reduction in
the taking of roe mullet in order
to conserve the reproduction
stock. Chiles and the Cabinet
made it clear they intended to
adopt a set of rules which they
felt would achieve this goal. The
Governor also threatened to put
the proposed rule into affect if
commercial fishermen attempted
to block implementation of the
new rule through legal appeals.
S Leroy Hall, president of a
Franklin County seafood workers
group, said they preferred a 25%
conservation goal for mullet stock
, but' could live with the 35% goal.
Sander' claimed the producers
alternative to FMC's proposal,
would accomplish the 35% goal.
Marine Fisheries Commis-
Ssoner Tom Frazier was under-
standably upset over the failure
by the Cabinet to immediately
adopt his committee's proposal.
Governor Chiles nevertheless
charged the MFC to come up with
a ruling along the lines recom-
mended by Organized Fishermen
of Florida in time to implement
before this fall's roe season.
The MFC will consider an al-
ternative mullet rule and a speck-
led trout draft rule at an August
21 workshop in Orlando.

Bus Driver Courses
By LarryA. Mathes
School used to be a simple thing. A student was assigned to a
prescribed course of study covering all the basics, and then was al-,
lowed to "branch out" in his/her 11th and 12th grades, follow an
academic college prep track or a more commercial or, business
oriented track. But some where down the line, liberal-thinking peo-
ple decided high schools should offer a wide choice of classes so
that students could broaden their scope of life.
That's nice if you. have unlimited funds and teachers-which we
don't! So, we offer the best selections we can, which means some
will not get everything they might like to take. We have a hard time
sometimes making them take the courses required by the state for
graduation. It's amazing how a meaningful schedule done In the
spring for a college-bound student suddenly needs "some changes"
when in the Fall some courses turn out to be more difficult than
was first thought. Some request changes to get Into an easier
course so they can make an "A" rather than tough out a "B" or "C"
in a hard course.
S As I've said many times, the quality education is there--soine
reach for it; some go to great lengths to avoid It!
b Please note-the back gate (leading ) to the walking track will
be locked at approximately 9 p.m. nightly (& remain locked ohn
weekends). Cars must be removed prior to 9 p.m., and please don't
bless out the custodial ladies for doing theirjobs. Part of their job is
to call a deputy if threatened. We cannot leave it unlocked-its pur-
pose Is to deter vandalism and it has worked well.'
We encourage parents to schedule visits to school, and we
make every effort to accommodate requests-but there is a limit to
our time and what we can do, and parents must be ready to accept
that. Every solution. Including disciplinary solutions, will not al-
ways be exactly what you want, but it will be as fair and factual as
time and policy permits. Remember. it is a "Public" school-we do
not select-students. Parents who want that option have the right tdo"
choose a private school that might more closely reflect their particu-
Many of you (I hope) have received a request to contribute to
the Gold Card fund In our county. I hope you will respond with a
donation of $5. $10, or more If you can. All of the money is spent

Pastor W.L. Tremain
that plagues my yard each spring is underway. But I have,
learned some things about yard work. They also apply to life.
Weeds in our yard are like sin in our lives. When we think
we've won, something new sprouts up, takes root, and takes
over. Too often, just like we neglect the lawn for a while, we tend
to underrate the power of sin. Sin is powerful and we tend to un-
derestimate its drastic consequences, while we overestimate our
power oydr our sin. "I'll pull those weeds next week end."
Only we find that what we put off once is easy to put off
again. And even when we get to the flower bed, we find the
weeds have just about taken over. Weeds, like sin, need to be
dealt with early. Weeds are easiest to uproot and most suscepti-
ble to spray when they are young and tender. After they take
ro6t, they are hard to pull up. They germinate seeds, so other
wepds. come up also., Sin is like that. If we deal with it early, it
does less damage to the lawn or our lives. And it is easier to re-
move; uproot and overcome.
have learned another important lesson about yards and
life. Weeds have a difficult time growing where there is good
Grass. There is a type of fertilizer called "weed and feed." It works
pretty well. It kills weeds but feeds the grass. Sometimes we.are
so busy pulling weeds from our lives, we forget to cultivate the
" gopd grass of our existence. We need not only to weed our lives,

At the School Board meeting
on Tuesday, August 3, the follow-

for Kindergarten, First, and Sec-

will remain what they are now.
We believe this is for the best in-

but nourish it also. Overcoming sin means breaking some bad
habits and establishing some good practices.
When our lives are properly watered, fertilized and we are
growing, the weeds of sin become less of a problem. We need to
remember that God's grace is His gift, which both pardons us
from the penalty of sin and grants us the power over our sin. Sin
in our lives, like weeds in our yards, never completely go away.
But wecan gain the upper hand.

The only way to get a
proper feel for the perfor-

comfort of a new car or

should test drive all the
models you're considering
and you should drive, them
on different types of roads.
How much should you
spend? There's no magic
formula, but the car pay-
ments should fit comfort-
ably within your'budget
