Passing the Gavel
Newly-elected Gulf County Commission chairman Warren
Yeager, pictured above right, presented a past chairman's
honorary gavel to Nathan Peters, Jr., Tuesday of last week,
as Peters stepped down from the post. In his parting state-
ment Peters remarked, "I wish Yeager well in his new post.
During the coming year, I hope the Commission adopts ordi-
nances requiring people to subscribe to garbage pick-up ser-
vice. We need that desperately in the County."
The City of Port St. Joe re-
ceived an offer of the old Port
Theatre building Tuesday night,
from an anonymous donor if the
City would accept it..
Tamara Laine, Chamber of
Commerce executive secretary,
told the Commission a third party
had approached her to act as in-'
termediary in the matter, saying,
the interested party was wanting
to purchase the building and give
it to the City if the City would ac-&
Mayor Frank Pate said the
City had had such offers before
and had tentative plans for re-
storing the building if the gift ever
came to fruition. He told Laine

Laine said the deal wasn't
complete yet but said she would
report the Commission's decision
to the interested party.
The Commissioi has tenta-
tive plans of securing an enter-
tainment grant, developing the
old theatre building in much the
same 1mainer in which the Mar-
tin Theatre building was refur-
bished in Panama City.

Arson Ruled In Fire
State Fire Marshals were called in Monday morning to in-
vestigate a Sunday night fire in the Howard Creek communi-
ty, suspected of being caused by arson.
The fire, which, damaged the rga~.wall..of.I storage rgpm
at Ho*ard Cree1Et -fe, had occurred at 11:20 p.m., Sunday,
October 17 after a neighbor had heard a soft explosion in
the vicinity of the building.
The fire was quickly put out, after damaging the rear
storage room and burning through the outside wall. Sheriff's
Deputy Paul Beasley called on Fire Marshals to investigate
after he surmised the "soft explosion" to be gasoline ignit-
John Hatcher of the fire marshal's office, out of Fort Wal-
ton Beach, was on hand making his investigation Monday
-morning. Hatcher verified suspicions that gasoline had been
involved in the fire and ruled that the blaze was caused by
an act of arson. The Gulf County Sheriffs Department is
continuing the investigation, seeking out the person who
set or caused the fire to be set.
CITY COMMISSION DELAYS HEARING
A proposed public hearing to consider a Franchise Tax on natu-
ral gas and telephone service was delayed by the Commission Tues-
day. The hearing was scheduled for November 2 at 8:00 p.m. The
franchise tax being considered would apply to St. Joe Natural Gas
Company and St. Joseph Telephone and Telegraph Company who
currently operate in the city without a franchise fee. Other utility
companies in the City, Florida Power Corporation and Gulf Cable
TV, operate under franchise agreements.
The hearing was delayed so the Commission could study the

small but could have developed into large de-

The first of the two alarms was at 11:00 a.m.
in the Laundry Room on Reid Avenue. It was
found to be caused by an electric motor overheat-

was quickly located and extinguished by firemen
when they arrived on the scene.

by Johnny Bryant.
FIFTY-SIXTH YEAR, NUMBER 8
'- .TH STAR
PAGE TWO THURSDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1993
AT LONG LAST, Congressman Pete Peterson is beginning to
look and sound like a Congressman from the Second District of
Florida; not from the second district of New Jersey. Ever since
the Congressman has been in office, he has been the bane of his
own district because of his votes and because of his rhetoric in
The title, "a liberal's liberal" would have better fit the Con-
gressman in the past and the Second District is definitely peo-
pled by conservative thinking Individuals.
We were hearing the Congressman taking a cussing more of-
ten than we were hearing credits uttered in the same breath
with his name, and that's not the way things should be. A repre-
sentative of a district should reflect the mind-set of that district.
We can appreciate Congressman Peterson voting the way he is
convinced he should, after looking at the facts, but the people of
this District, had rather he salve that vote of conscience with a
IT'S MUCH EASIER to agree with the Congressman's recent
-two important decisions than it has been to agree with his posi-
tion in the past. Northwest Florida is not convinced President
'Clihton's medical program is good for the nation, even if it Is
promulgated and endorsed by Hillary. Hillary isn't president. Nor
is she a Congresswoman. She should have no more impact on
the plan which is approved than you or this writer. But, it ap-
pears as If she has had everything to do with the plan which

And, those two items may be the least objectionable in the
entire bill. Who knows? We have read everything which has been
published in the newspapers and magazines we could get our
hands on and we still find ourselves not very conversant with
the fine points of the measure.
CONGRESSMAN PETERSON'S OBJECTIONS to the medical
plan and the new tax plan reflect the feelings of the majority of
the folks in his district. We're pleased to see that we're all on the
same wave-length here. We believe Congressman Peterson can
do us some good in Congress because of his elocution and his
sincerity. It's much more pleasant to be able to support the Con-
gressman's position than it is to oppose it. He is much more ef-
fective in Congress when he has the backing of his constituents
and with his abilities, just may be able to get some Florida
Cracker wisdom into these two proposals.
We're For 1
THIS MATTER OF driving on the beach in Gulf County has
been an emotional subject for several years in the past and it
will continue to be an emotional subject in the future. There is a
vocal following on both sides of the question. We haven't heard
from those who want to continue driving on the beach, as yet,
but believe me, we will!
As a matter of record, Gulf County's beaches in the Cape San
Bias area were eroding and building back long before there were
any cars to drive on them. That is a force of nature at work and
4 t:will-continue-to.-alternately build"and-gnatwat theds t d '
even after driving on them has been settled. Anybody who has
been involved in arguing the pros or cons of driving on the beach
knows it may be a millennium or two before the question is set-
AS A MATTER of position let this writer say, now, we have
never driven on south Gulf County beaches. We've ridden on the
beach in another's vehicle twice in our life, so you could say
i'Stop driving," and it wouldn't affect us one way or another. But,
we're not going to say that. We're going to say let the driving con-
tinue; for a very good reason; the reason given by County Com-
mission Chairman Warren Yeager.
There is some 20 miles of Indian Pass/Money Bayou/Cape
San Blas Beach. There are only THREE approved access points
to the beach for the public. At St. Joe Beach, we have approxi-
mately 10 miles of beach with at least a dozen places where the
public has access. That is the plain and simple reason for allow-
Ipg driving on one and not allowing it on the other.
S: THE ACCESS POINTS are the County-owned Tucker proper-
ty (yet to be made useable]; an access adjacent to Ski Breeze
Campground, and another at Money Bayou Beach. If you use
any other point to gain entrance you are either violating the law.
or crossing private property, which can be shut down to access
at any time.
We have other reasons, too, but that's the best and only one
we're offering at this time.

Oft Told Tales
October 19-I'd planned after
supper tonight to do an intriguing
story on the federal deficit... or
possibly, a treatise on America's
political, sociological, and eco-
nomical involvement with various
Third World nations. I'd even

titled Why Rush Limbaugh Is
Holding Back, but I really don'tC.-
have my mind on it. Today ,s my
older brother's birthday.
I've thought about Leon most

around David Mark and: me so
we'd pull the lawnmower for him;:,
how he and Jackie "borrowed" the

lice car; the firing of the World -

dormant on the city square for so
many years; the big whipping he
received when David and I didn't

the abandoned "haunted" house
and making those noises after

self that we couldn't spend the

Big brothers are special peo-
ple. I've thought of all those sto-
ries today-and probably a hun-
dred more. What memories!
Ole Leon was about half cra-
zy, but he took that big brother
thing pretty seriously.
When I got my first, new, real
baseball glove from down at the
Western Auto-guess who broke
it in for me? Guess who showed
me how to rub in the saddle soap
and the Neet's Foot oil? And when
we played pitch, he'd throw it
easy, so I could "succeed" in
catching it. "Kes, if the ball is
above your waist, the elbows are
down and the fingers point sky-
ward, like this. If it's coming 'at
you below the waist, turn your
hands over, fingers toward the
ground, that's right; use both
Simple, sure. But it was the
first time I'd ever heard it! I've re-
peated those basic instructions a
thousand times to a hundred
kids, including two of my own.
God was pretty smart to give
us big brothers.
Leon is near about five years
older than me. World War II got
in there between us. Five years is
a pretty big gap when he was
twelve and I was seven. Mother
* would make him take me with
him to the pick-up games. He
didn't like me tagging along, and
sometimes he'd punch me around
a little just for being there (I said
he was an O.K. big brother; I'm
not proclaiming him to be the
greatest of all time). And I can
understand his side of it, NOW.
But then, I just wanted to play
ball. It was mostly right field and
batting last, but I was in the
game! Listen, at that age, you
play with guys that are four and
five years older than you, you ei-
ther get good quick or you hit the
road. I had moved up to Ishort
stop and second or third in the
line up by the time that bunch
graduated from high school.
They'll never know what kind'a
boost they gave my athletic ca-
reer. And I'll tell you something
else; some of my best friends to-
day were in Leon's class in high
school. There is a special bond
between kids that "choose up
sides" and do battle that the
years. can not diminish. ,
I thought of Leon this after-
noon as I stopped by football

Another Birthday Has Come And Gone
It sure was an uneventful birthday for this year, thanks to eve-
ryone I know. I was very pleased that I was alive and in reasonably
Good health, but things didn't go as I had planned.
My birthday was October 12 and has been as far back as I can
remember. For the past several years, I have expected my birthdays
to be celebrated in a more festive, grandiose manner. I was thinking
this year that there might be a party at the .courthouse 'with the
h mayof there atnd maybe the governor would ,stop by for a piece ofi
cake and there would be a telegram from President Hillary Clinton;
Well, co-president Clinton.
Alas, my plans fell through .again!
Besides my family, only two people who remembered my birth-
day took time to acknowledge it. They were Bill Wood and Billy
Carr. Both have a vested interest in my well-being and longevity.
Bill Wood has all my insurance, and I buy all my vehicles from Bill
Carr. They both hope I live to be 150, or. at least until after they re-
Presents were a little short this year, too. I received nothing!
Zero presents. Zilch. Scratch., And I'm a man who has a wide range
of gifts that could be given to me. If a person wished to buy me a
gift, all they would have to do is walk into any store (clothing, gro-
cery, show, Salvation Army), close their eyes and point in any direc-
tion, and say, "I want one of those for Wendell's birthday." Whatever
Sif was'would be perfectly acceptable and chances are I would need
it or couldiuse' it, My possessions have a long way to go before I be-
come a "man who has everything."
I did receive a birthday gift but the lady who sent it didn't know
it was my birthday. Although I can't count it a birthday gift. It sure-,
ly made my day and I thank her for it.
The gift was a letter from a lady who is affectionately known as
"Panhandle Pearl". Pearl lives in Jacksonville but from time to time
spends some time in Carrabelle. Pearl's letter was very warm and
nice. She had read some of my articles and was kind enough to
compliment me on them. She also Included some material which
she thought might be suitable for some future articles. I thank her
for that, too, because good material is hard to come by.
Pearl told me the story of a lady who suspected her husband of
Infidelity. The woman. Pearl said, confided to a friend that she was
thinking of divorcing her husband because she wasn't sure he was
being faithful to her. She wasn't sure, she told the friend, that the
last child she had belonged to her husband, so she was going to di-
Watch out, Pearl!
But, birthdays come and go and some are marked with only the
passing of another day. Most people. I find, dread getting old. 1, on
the other hand, cherish each birthday: Really, each day. Since I
have realized that I am not immortal, each day has been a bonus.
And, the alternative to getting old is not too appealing to me.

Efforts Expected to Fall on Deaf Eai
Dear Mr. Editor:
I want: to compliment the'
Cape San Bias residents who ap-
peared. at, a recent Commission-'
er's meeting on beach" driving.:
Their' efforts as expected fell on
deaf ears; Commissioner Yeager
only sees this attempt ,to stop
beach driving as a way of hurting
his re-election bid if,he does not.
support beach driving. ,-'
S,:A Astatement that he could get ,
2,000 votes to drive on the beach
compared, to 13 for the Cape 'at-
tendance in opposition, to driving'
on the, beach is proof Commis-
sioner Yeager ('and-Commissioner
Taylor, obviously,are blind ,to the
fact that beach driving is ruining
the beach,' not only for Cape resi-
dents,.,but also. for themselves, as.
well as future generations of
County residents. Erosion is the.
Commissioner Yeager,' why
do you think beaches such as St.
George. and others do .not allow
beach driving'? (Erosioni) With in-
cieased visitors (beach drivers) to
the Cape Beaches, it is only a
mratter;'of time when rock rein-,
forcement (such, as Brunswick .
beaches) will be the;only alterna-
tlve to stop the problem.
I will agree wholeheartedly
everyone should have access to
the beach; however, no at the ex-
pense of ruining the entire beach
for eVeryone! 'The alternative is' to
establish access to the beach' and
other areas such as the park and
right-of-way. access agreements
with 'subdivisions. Or what is
wrong with simply parking 'and
walking to the beach? '
Commissioner Yeager stated
there was 20 miles of beach
(good, more beach to walkki, not
drive! Of course,.j wouldn't expect
Gulf County Commission6rs to
risk the majority of' votes they"
would lose if they did stop beach
driving. However, tell that to your

you purchased your property? My
answer to you Is no, I did not
know there was driving allowed ,

my property 14 years ago. If I

Merchants Offering A Safe Alternative
to Annual Trick or Treat Forays for Kids
SCredit Unions Serve 88
Million People Worldwide
Today is International Credit
union Day. Since Port St. Joe has
two credit union outlets operating
here, people of the area have a
vested interest in this fact.
Credit unions started many
years ago as a place of savings for
their members. Now, they have
evolved into offering almost the
same services as a bank to their

Hallowe'en is approaching fast and the Port St. Joe mer-
chants are making plans to sponsor another night of fun and
treating as they have done for the past two years. "The activity
has proven to be such a success for both the merchants and the
children we are glad to do it again," said Merchants Association
president, Wayne Taylor. Taylor said the merchants are all ap-
preciative of the response to the Hallowe'en trick or treat activity
held on Reid Avenue and the way in which the parents have re-
sponded to this activity for the kids.
About two and a half to three hours of continuous activity
has been planned for the children, which will begin at 6:15 p.m.
with a costumed parade on Reid Avenue. The little ghosts and
goblins are asked to be at the Fifth Street intersection of Fifth
Street, to start the parade to the other end. After reaching the
end of the "march of the ghouls" at,,Second Street, the kids will
then trick or treat the merchants all the way back to Fifth
Every merchant in the City will be represented on Reid Ave-
nue, handing out treats to the little tricksters. Last year, in spite
of cold weather, a large number of trickers called on the mer-
chants until after 8:00 p.m. This year, the response is expected
to be even better.
PLENTY TO DO
there will be plenty for kids to do in the controlled activity af-
ter dark. The street will be closed to traffic and kids can wander
at will on their nocturnal search for treats.
In addition to the treats and the parade, which will all be of-
fered free to all comers, there will be a haunted house and
haunted maze set up by the Highland View Elementary School
for a nominal charge. Tamara Laine, executive director of the
Chamber of Commerce, said "several games and food booths will
also be on hand, prepared by various classes and groups. We
also have a definite commitment on offering pony rides during
the evening of fun as well as several games which can be played

will present a free program at WHS from 12:45 p.m.-2:15 p.m. This
group tours the country entertaining schools and other gatherings,
promoting the U.S. Navy through good, clean music and fun. They
play popular country, bluegrass, and traditional country. The pub-
lic is invited, free of charge, 'so join the students for an afternoon of
good country music.
You might have noticed the full page ad in the Herald last week.
You can also see Country Current at the Marina Civic Center Friday
night. Thanks goes to former WHS graduate Connie Whitfleld for
her help in bringing this group to WHS.
October 29, the WHS middle school "Halloween Dance" will be
held 6th period. Middle schoolers enjoy this event annually at WHS.
Parents are welcome guests.
November 2nd, the Student Government has. challenged the fa-
culty to a volleyball match to raise $$ to help pay for Homecoming
expenses. November 5 is Homecoming Day, complete with a 2:00
p.m. parade and a 7:30 p.m. game with Cottondale. King and,
Queen will be crowned at the game, so plan on being there. The last
couple of homecomings have seen a huge increase in the nu;nber of
"old grads" returning to the scenes of their youth.
November 8, donkey basketball returns to WHS. Coach Fran-
zese needs volunteer riders (no students) for this event. Contact,
him soon and get your name in-the list fills up quickly. (November
8 is also the end of the second 6 weeks of school!)
Both high schools are working hard to improve the discipline-
attitude among students, but it is not an easy task. Many students,
because of what they see on TV and movies and hear on tapes,
think it is okay to disobey or talk back to a member of the staff. I
sometimes ask parents if they would let their student bow up or
smart back to them. The answer is usually "certainly not!", to which
I reply, 'Well, we can't let them do it here, either." With several hun-
dred students to be concerned with, the adjustment must be made
by the students, not by the staff.

helpers. Last week on Thursday,
they were thrilled to see and hear
the fire truck. Firefighters Jack

Chief Larkie McDaniel arranging
this. Then on Friday, the wee
ones trooped down to the Medical

Monday, Deputy Greg Cole of the

enlightened all of them, and on

DR. STEPHEN GROSS
What causes severe pain
in the heel? There are sev-
eral possible explanations.
Often the cause originates
not in the heel, but in an-
other element of the foot-
the plantar fascia. One end
of this fibrous tissue on the
bottom of the feet is con-
nected to the heel bone, the
other to the forefoot. It con-
trols. the movement. of
bones in the arch.
When the plantar fascia
is injured or becomes irri-
tated and inflamed, it can
put unusual stress on other
foot elements. One result is
severe, pain at one end of
the fascia-where it is an-
chored to the heel bone.
The pain sometimes flares
'when one stands up after a
period of rest. Singling out
the plantar fascia as the
cause of heel pain takes
some medical "detective
work" for which the podia-
trist is trained and experi-
ences. Treatment varies ac-
cording to the type of fascia
problem, but the objectives
are the same: Restore the
fascia to normal functional
and eliminate heel pain.

Crawford said the Depart-

More than 5 billion trees have
been planted -since the Depart-

ation effort in 1928.
