Election Day Tuesday

Two Positions Have Opposition In City

Tuesday, May 9 is election day in
Port St. Joe, with an opportunity for
electors inside the city limits to select
two councilmen to serve on the Board of
Commissioners for the next two years.
With two Commission seats up for
election this year, in addition to the po-
sition of Mayor-Commissioner, both the
SCommission seats have the incumbents
seeking re-election and facing opposi-
Commissioner Charles Tharpe is ask-
ing, voters to return him for his third
two-year term on the Board. Wayne
White, his opposition, asks that you
place him in Group One on the Commis-
sion instead. .
Tharpe is a foreman with Arizona
Chemical, where he has worked for most
of his adult life. White has been involved
with law enforcement for the better part
of his adult life, working for many years
as Chief Deputy with the late Sheriff
Byrd Parker and as an investigator with

the State's Attorney's office for many
years, and is now chief of investigators
for the office.
In Group Two, veteran Commissioner
Edwin Williams is again asking to be re-
turned to the Commission for another
term. Williams faces opposition in the
election from Damon McNair, Jr., and Ar-
ion [Nick] Ward. Williams is a retired
school principal. McNair operates the
Campus Corner Cafe and is a volunteer
with several youth organizations in the
City. Ward is an employee with St. Joe
Paper Company. Both are life-long resi-
dents of Port St. Joe.
The third position will not be on the
ballot because of lack of any opposition.
Long-time Mayor Frank Pate is seeking
to return for his 30th year as Mayor of
the City: the longest any person has
served in that position.
Electors may cast ballots in both rac-
es with balloting at the Fire Station.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

City Sets Demolition

of 28 Crack Houses

Air War Declared on Drugs

Members of the Gulf County
Sheriffs Department and the Port
St Joe Police Department located
two marijuana plots and pulled
up over 300 plants with the aid of
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's helicopter pilot
With the sunshine and warm-
er weather of spring' the search
for cultivators of the illegal weed
and their farming spots Intensi-
fies as the start of another grow-
ing season brings the "farmers"
out. One of the primary ways to

locate the fields of marijuana is to
find them from the sky.
Using spotters to locate the
plants-two plots, one at Howard
Creek and another near Dalkeith,
were located from the air and lo-
,cal law enforcement personnel
were directed to their locations.
One person was arrested as a
result of the fly-over. Bill Maul-
den of Howard Creek was appre-
hended and charged with cultiva-
tion of marijuana.
Plants confiscated during the
search were very young, averag-

Dumps Its Load
A pulp wood truck dumped its load of
pine logs at the parking lot of the First Unit-
ed Methodist Church in Wewahitchka last
Friday, but there were no injuries as a result
of the accident. According to Police Chief
Cecil Donaidson, the fifth wheel locking

ing only eight to 15 inches in
height, but would have reached
six to sevdn feet in height at ma-
turity, yielding approximately one
pound of marijuana per plant.
Gulf County Sheriff Frank
McKeithen said, "It doesn't matter
if the plants are six inches tall or
six feet tall-if we spot them they
are going to make the ride."
He said the fly-overs would
continue throughout the growing
season.as efforts continue to rid
Gulf County of illegal drugs.

the tractor. As soon as the driver realized
something was wrong, he started stopping
the truck. As it rolled to the curb, the trailer
flipped over, dumping its load. The truck
was owned by Bobby Lee Johnson of Grand

Grant Money
To Help Defray
the Expenses
The Port St. Joe City Com-
mission set the wheels into mo-
tion to demolish several more
"crack houses" located in North
,Port St. Joe at their regularly
scheduled meeting Tuesday e've-
ning. :
Unoccupied buildings in the
area have served as a magnet
drawing people looking for a hid-
den' place to "hang out" and are
popular spots, for drug users,
picking up their nickname. "crack
Residents have asked the
Board in past meetings for their
help to tear down the structures.
The City has destroyed several of
the dilapidated buildings and ac-
cording to Port St. Joe Police
Chief Bucky Richter, 28 buildings
are currently on the demolition
Mayor Frank Pate told the
Commission $16,000 in grant
money had been received to help
finance dismantling of the struc-
tures, and asked Public Works
Superintendent Frank Healy to
get the project moving.
The demolition work will be
done by city crews on their off
time using city equipment to tear
down and haul off the structures.
Grant money will be used to pay
the laborers for the work they
perform in demolishing the build-
ings. Chief Richter told the Board
three of the structures have been
,approved for removal by the own-
ers and that he hoped that most
of the buildings on the list would
be approved in the same fashion.
Those buildings not receiving
owner approval for destruction
would have to be condemned be-
fore the city could remove them.
Need Sidewalks
Ann Ballard approached the
Board requesting they look into
_the. possibility of constructing
more sidewalks in the city. She
informed the commissioners a
dangerous situation existed on
Garrison Avenue and Niles Road
with children weaving in and out
of traffic. Mrs. Ballard said she
had a list, with over 100 names
on it, of people who shared her
concern over this situation.
Commissioner Charles Tharpe
responded that the city was try-
ing to get something done to rem-
edy the problem. He explained
that a walk-over was presently
under construction over the
drainage ditch between SL James
Episcopal Church and Cypress
Avenue. The crossover would give
children a route to travel with
less traffic congestion.
Mayor Pate said it was in the
budget to construct sidewalks on
Niles Road between Garrison Ave-
nue and the Port St. Joe High
School, and plans were being
made to get that project under-
way. He added that the city would
do whatever the taxpayers wished

Old Theatre Building Sold
After gathering rust and dust since the early 60's
the old Port Theatre building has been sold to owners
with plans to do something besides speculate with the
old building.
Wade and Paula Clark recently purchased the build-
ing and plan to begin work on fixing up the premises at
an early date. The Clarks have plans to begin repairs on
the front of the building and the roof, as the most ur-
gent repairs needed. They plan to originally hold week-
ly auctions in the building and further develop the in-'
side of the structure as time and finances allow, either
developing it into an antique mall type usage with pos-
sibly a portion being renovated into a moving picture
theatre or as an auditorium for live productions.
The Clarks have no definite ideas for the building
except they plan to use it for something!
Plans are to restore as much of the original appear-
ance of the old building as possible.

How, not IF!

COUNTY COMMISSIONERS are talking about placing a
charge for use of public, county-owned, boat loading facilities.
So far as the Commissioners are concerned the question to be
answered is not whether to place a charge for use of the facility,
but how to collect the fee. The County owns several landing
spots in strategic places, serving popular fishing spots. The
many "for hire" privately owned facilities would not be affected.
It seems as if the boat loading and unloading facilities are
creating an expense for the taxpayers to maintain and the Com-
mission wishes to make the landings self-sustaining and capable
of financing their own improvements.
THIS HAS BEEN CREATING more of a financial burden in
later years, because the bulk of their attraction is for .ut-of-
county boat owners and operators. To satisfy yourself that this
is true, just take a ride any week end, visiting the several public,
county-owned boat landings in the county and take a gander at
the Bay County and Calhoun county license tags on vehicles
parked at the landings. You may count the out-of-state tags
also. Their number is about as prevalent as Gulf County tags in
If the county was affluent enough to furnish a first class
landing, free of charge, to attract visitors to the county, it would
be well enough to leave the situation as it is now. But Gulf
County doesn't have that kind of money.
CHARGES ARE MADE FOR these kinds of services in other
places and the people using them are glad to pay them for the
maintenance of a good facility. We don't think the county could
go wrong in applying a charge. The charge is used to maintain
privately-owned landings and could be used for the same pur-
pose with the public landings also, rather than having to touch
the back pocket. of you, and you, and you, to provide facilities for
people who live in other counties and states.
Even resident users' of these same boat landings are con-
stantly calling for improvements and repairs. They are always
wanting things like more parking space, better launch facilities,
picnic facilities, etc. A nominal charge could provide the money
for making these improvements as well as routine maintenance.
The only question should be HOW not IF!

Circle the Wagons!

CIE :- -E THE WAGONS because the. terrorists have invaded
the United States. The settlers of the old west had the right idea
when they banded together to fight off the Indians and outlaws.
It was the only.way they could survive.
Now, as then, our safety is threatened by those who would
mount a sneak attack with no regard to who, or how many they
should kill in the process. Just "express" themselves and let the
people suffer! Killing Indiscriminately is bad enough, but killing
little children, who never harmed anyone is inexcusable!
THE POLICEMAN FROM Oklahoma City carrying the limp
body of a baby touched heartstrings all over the nation and ig-
nited a flame of animosity toward the ones who would harm that
No punishment is too harsh foriSuch a person ',
Already- we are-seeing urging to go slow with-new laws de-
signed to curtail such bombings, showing that the liberal faction
is already at work to protect any rights they feel the perpetrators
might have. The bombers considered nothing: not the day; not
the number of innocent people the would hurt; not the age of
these people. They just knew they had their bomb together and
it was convenient for THEM to set it off around 9:00 in the morn-
ing, regardless of who was in the way. A few hours of waiting
would still blow the building up and many of the people and all
the children would be safely at home .... but it wouldn't be con-
venient for the bombers to wait the few hours.
of an emotional situation, we know. He couldn't very well say
anything else, given the circumstances. We agree with his state-
ment of, 'The bombers will be caught; they will be given quick
penalties and their punishment will be severe".
In similar circumstances in the past, these threats have not -
'been carried out. Iraq still has those two Americans captive. The
nation is still stumbling around trying to bring the Trade Center
bombers to justice. We would just imagine 'the Oklahoma City
bombers are quaking in their boots for fear the threats will be,
carried out. ...
If President Clinton would leave the punishment of the
bombers up to the people of Oklahoma City, it would be certain;
it would be swift; it would be severe for sure!
And all Americans would stand up and cheer, when the pun-
ishment was meted out!

This story "came to me" a
couple of nights ago as I was
waiting to pay for a bottle of
shampoo and a Snickers bar.
With only two items, I naturally
bounced over to the express line-
thinking. "I'll be outta here in a
JilT." You're familiar with the ex-
press line, that's the one with the
big, huge, gigantic sign right
above it proudly declaring to the
whole wide world, "EXPRESS
UNE, Eight items or less." Actual-

ly. I think the proper wording
should be eight items or fewer.
But regardless of the grammar or
syntax or whatever, the meaning
is crystal clear!
On this particular evening I
fell in line behind a man and two
women. The man had about 12
items. I couldn't really tell about
the next lady but I ate my Snick-
ers one peanut at a time and was
thinking of doing my hair while
she "unloaded". The hefty lady
right in front of me had exactly
16 Items. I counted them. I fig-
ured.she. thought as long as she
had multiples of eight she was in
the right line. She was also puff-
ing away on a filter tip Camel.
'Course, the no smoking sign
wasn't no where near as large as

the EXPRESS LINE billboard.
Here is the perfect place for
me to point out that manners are
woefully lacking in our society to-
day. And manners are estab-
lished by rules and good deco-
rum. And rules are in a large part
based on laws. The guy who
doesn't mind breaking the rules
at the express line probably
wouldn't have any trouble break-
ing a law here and there "as long
as no. one got hurt". .,. .
Bu't I didn't have any weighty
thoughts or lofty ideas on my,
mind this night. All I could think

month." I didn't even give her the
old hurry up and get. the heck out
of my way look.
I just stood there.
I just stood there marvelling
at my owni patience and thinking
back almost 20 years ago to an
old man with an unfiltered Camel'
pressed to his lips. We were hun-
kering down out back of the hos-
pital. I had chewed a pack of Red-
man in about 20 minutes and
was opening another when. he
broke the silence. "Is this your
first child?" .
'Yes sir, but how. did you
know we were here--" .'
He just chuckled. 'You-don't
seem to be a man long on pa-
"No sir. I want everything
right now. I've got things to do. I
don't wait on nothing--"
He chuckled again. "Son your
waiting days are just beginning."
I started to repeat that I don't'
wait for nothing, but I let it pass.
Besides, I had more important
things on my mind. 'What was
taking.so long? She could have
delivered two babies by now!
I threw "inh another 'chew. -He
slowly and deliberately lit up his
Camel. "Son, IFused to be in just
as big a hurry as you-but that
was 3 daughters and 8'grandchil-
dren ago. God's got a way about
teaching patience."
He chuckled again.

'cause he 'felt better if I didn't go

everything just like Josh-only

April Had Many Important Historical Events in Last 50 Years

many important dates, both re-
membered and current. When we
think of the important historical
events which happened for our
generation during the month of
April, we're surprised at the num-:
ber of events which shaped con-
temporary history and came
about during April.
I'm not sure they happened
in April, but think of the impact
the every-day use of the airplane,
the automobile and television
have had on our life style.
All came about during and
immediately after the first World
War. That wasn't too long ago.
The first blinking television came
into being during the 1930's and
has since mush-roomed to the
point where almost every Ameri-
can household has at least one.
And computers! Need we
elaborate on that one? I read a

numerous and have almost as
important an effect on our way of

life. ,
Historically, not since the dis-
covery of America has such im-
portant events taken place as
have happened during April over
the past 50 or 60 years.
Just a few weeks ago we rec-
ognized the 50th anniversary of,
the death of perhaps the most
loved President this nation has
ever had-Franklin Delano Roose-
We also observed the death,
by suicide, of perhaps the most
hated man in history by this and
every other nation-Adolph Hit-
ler, Chancellor of Germany dur-

ing World War II. Hitler oversaw
the extermination of over a mil-
lion Jewish citizens.
Hitler was so universally hat-
ed he was often-times said to 'be
"The, Beast so often: mentioned
and described in The Bible.
Consider all the mean people
you have known, who have not
been considered for this title, and
you will see what a contemptuous
fellow Adolph Hitler was!
But a woman loved even him.
His "friends" removed his body
and the body of his mistress, Eva
Braun, from the bunker where
they had committed suicide and
placed them in an open ditch out-
side, where they were doused
with gasoline and burned.
A true expression of adula-
tion by his followers.

ago. We. have been licking the

wounds caused by that unfortu-

nate war ever since.
Politicians have been made or
broken by 'their opinion of that
war since that time, with only
careful mention made of it, even
today. It was also in April, only
weeks ago, that former Secretary
of Defense Robert S. McNamara
published a book which had as
its subject, the mistakes made
with Vietnam.
The War was an important
point in our history and the reve-'
lation was an important confes-
sion to our people. Only time will
tell whether he should have kept
quiet or if his revelation will be a
healing point for our people.

April was also the month of the
death of arguably the greatest
baseball player who ever played.

famous-George Herman Ruth,
better known as "Babe" Ruth.
Old "Babe" was a rounder in

his personal life, but nobody
could argue his .prowess with a
.baseball bat! His ability wasn't
limited to use of a bat, either. He
first made his entrance into pro-
fessional, baseball, from an or-
phanage, as a left-handed pitch-
er. "Babe," was ahi "ace" on the
mound, and it was with more
than a 'little trepidalion that his
manager on the old Boston Red
Sox moved him to the outfield so
he could have his mighty bat
available every day.

. Clarity and Speed-Keys to Fast Response

An integral part of the 911
emergency response system is the
ability of dispatchers and emer-
gency personnel to quickly identi-
fy and located those in need of
emergency hep.
Marshall Nelson, 911 Coordi-
nator, has spent months oversee-
ing the installation of the sophis-
ticated 911-Enhanced phone
system, which will receive emer-
gency calls and immediately flash
the name, address, and even
medical history of the residents of
the home or business of the call-

terminal that resembles the con-
trol panel of the spaceship "En-

on to emergency personnel,
whether it's police officers re-
sponding to render aid or ambu-
lance crews, needed for emergency
medical assistance,
The key to the effectiveness of
the 911 system is response time,
from the moment -emergency
crews are alerted to a call until
they are on the scene to render
emergency 'assistance. Nelson
and the 911 Committee have
named, roads, both paved and

matched with lots and acreage
within the county, allowing the
Property Appraiser's office to uti-
lize computers as opposed to a
manual system. Both the City of
Wewahitchka and Port St. Joe:
will be able to insert information:
on the location of sewer lines,
storm water drainage systems,
drinking water mains, alley right-
of-ways, and utility locations. The
location of such things as water'
shut-off valves would be perma-
nently recorded in the computer'
for future reference.
One can only imagine the
plexities of gathering and input-
ting all the information required
to complete a mapping project of
this magnitude. But barring any
unforeseen complications Gulf
County should be totally on-line
with their 911 mapping needs
sometime late this year.

cerning the ambulance service

of Gulf County, not as a represen-
tative of the City of Port St. Joe.
Thank you,

GCCC Benefits From

Private Contribution

Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege students have state-of-the-
art equipment in their computer
labs, thanks to private contribu-
tions received at the April meet-
ing of the District Board of Trus,
tees. These dollars will be used to
fully fund the cost of providing
two computer labs with 21st Cen-
tury hardware and software.
Trustees Chairman William
C. Cramer, Jr. pointed out that
five years ago the college was 'on
the. cutting edge in technology.
However, the software GCCC stu-
dents need to learn for the 21st
Century business environment
cannot be used on the college's
current computers. Adding that
budget constraints do not allow-
the college to purchase this
equipment from its operating
budget, he acknowledged the vital
importance of private dollars.
Participating in the. tradition
of generosity of members of the

college's board, Cramer then pre-
sented GCCC Foundation Presi-
dent Norm Guilkis a check for
$35,000. Cramer also recognized
the contributions of the' George
G. Tapper Foundation throughout
the tenures of former Trustees
Chair George Tapper 'and Vice
Chair Amy Tapper and, since her
death in .1994,; through their
daughter, Trish Tapper Warriner,
and her husband, David. Contri-
butions from the Tapper Founda-
tion over the last several months
have exceeded $26,000.
Also, on behalf of former
Trustees Chair Charles A. White-
head, Cramer presented a
$15,000 check to the Foundation.
These gifts, totalling over $76,000
along with other recent gifts, can
be used for more than $50,000 in
matching money from the Florida
Academic Improvement Trust
Fund, resulting in a total contri-
bution of over $126.000.

New Boating Rules May 1

A new boating regulation
which takes effect May 1 now
mandates that everyone on board
most vessels must have a Type I,

and other boating safety regula-

number of accidents and save
"In the past a U. S. Coast
Guard-approved Type IV PFD or
seat cushion served as a life jack-

Applewhite. 'The new regulation
simply says they must have a
wearable PFD for each person,
and for those vessels over 16 feet
in length, one throwable Type IV
device on board."
He said vessels exempt from

rowing sculls and sailboards.
Applewhite said Florida law
also mandates that all children
under age six must wear a PFD
while the vessel is underway. Un-

after an accident just doesn't

Space Between


Too much space between them forward, creating un-

teeth can detract from your
appearance, especially if the
.unwanted space is in the front
of your mouth where it is easi-
ly seen. This is sometimes
caused by a congenital condi-
tion, one that you have inherit-
ed. It can also result from
harmful habits in childhood,
such as thumb-sucking. When
the force of the thumb is ex-
erted against the front teeth it
can move them into a forward
position, making spaces ap-
pear between the teeth. An-
other cause is tongue-
thrusting or reverse swallow-
ing. This also puts- pressure
on the front teeth and pushes

wanted spaces.
If you have this problem,
you should discuss it with
your dentist to find out what
kind of treatment he recom-
mends to eliminate the spac-
es. Straightening misaligned
teeth by orthodontic means.
may be one solution. If it's not
a case of misaligned teeth, he
may be able to rebuild some
of the teeth cosmetically to im-
prove your appearance.

@Can someone be allergic to exer-
cise? Or, is that just an excuse con-
ceived by a small, yet powerful, group
of couch potatoes? ,
The anr',er is no, people are not
allergic tw exercise per se. However, if
someone has an allergic condition, par-
ticipating in exercise or sports can
aggravate or perpetuate the symptoms
of an allergy.

The Gulf County Scholarship
drive for 1995 is presently under-
way. Last year alone, $23,000 in
scholarships was awarded to 50
Gulf County students through
this project. Donations will help
assure that every student who
graduates from Gulf County pub-
lic high school, for years to come,

in 1987. The goal of this alliance
is to help Gulf County public
school graduates pursue further
education. Students earn points
throughout high school and con-
vert them to scholarship dollars'
upon graduation. Since the begin-

has increased from fifty (50%) to
eighty (80%) percent. This suc-

To the Citizens of Port St. Joe

I am seeking your vote and support
for re-election as City Commissioner in
Group II. I have served you faithfully
over the years and will continue to do
so if re-elected. A vote for me is a vote
for better city government, honesty,
and truthfulness.

A 7 r eflAp

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the.
S. people.of Port St. Joe for their support during my
Term in office as your City Commissioner.
I am again asking for your support and vote in the
upcoming election on May 9, 1995.
Much has been accomplished during the past four
years. Some of these items that are of particular
interest I have discussed below.
1) I supported retaining the garbage program to
.. preserve jobs in the City of Port.St. Joe as long as
the program is self supporting.
2) I attended county commission meetings, with
the support of Mayor Pate, and have developed a-
working relationship with county government. I
have requested and received funds from the
county for our garbage program, our recycling pro-
gram and recreational facilities. I have requested
and received funds from the county for our road
programs here in Port'St. Joe. I continually have a
goal of working towards the betterment of govern-
ment for all citizens of Gulf County.
3) I support expanded sewer and water service for
Ward Ridge through means that would cost the
current residents only their fair share with the balance being paid by owners of undeveloped -operties,
in this area. Due to environmental concerns, this service will soon be required for any further.olevelop-
4) I supported the Downtown Redevelopment Program from city limits to city limits. Grant funds are.up
for approval for the first phase of this program.
5) During the past four years three new parks have been built in Port St. Joe and work is underway on
a fourth one. Our main concern is to get our kids off the street and provide adequate recreational facil-
ities for their enjoyment. Our program is so successful that we have had kids coming in from other
counties to participate. A recreation director,,Benny Roberts, has been hired to coordinate recreation
programs.and oversee upkeep of recreational facilities.
6) I supported new lights in the ball park in North Port St. Joe and the Washington gym.
7) A new "walk park" for our older citizens is being built in North Port St. Joe on the East side of the
Washington gym. Consideration is also being given to building a "walk park" from 10th to 16th Street.
8) Have proposed sidewalks from the high school all the way down Garrison Avenue and on Avenue A
to the new housing development. This will allow our children to get off the street when walking to and
from school.
9) Supported Tripartite Committee working with Wastewater Treatment Plant in upgrading lab and en-
gineering programs to perform more duties in-house rather than going to outside contractors at addi-
tional cost to the City.
The above are some of the main concerns I have been asked about. Your City Commission is continu-
ally seeking ways to serve all citizens of Port St. Joe for their needs and concerns and will welcome
your comments and suggestions at any time.
If you have further questions or concerns, please call me at 229-8864.

Please go to the polls on May 9, 1995, and re-elect me as your City Commissioner.

An extraordinary apple, the CAPE
Granny Smith, is .the original Granny
Smith apple that Americans first tasted
and fell in love with over twenty years
ago. This South African import set the
standard of excellence for the variety and
now Granny Smiths are grown all over
the world. However, the CAPE Granny,
grown in the lush and verdant orchards
of South Africa's Cape of Good Hope is
still the one that remains the favorite on
produce shelves everywhere and this
summer, after an absence of several
years, we can' once more savor the
distinctive tart-sweet flavor and crunchy
texture that is the hallmark of the CAPE
Granny. In season from, May though
August the CAPE apple is truly ripe
from the tree, harvested at its peak and

pampered all the way on its journey to
North America.
"Go lightly" is today's dining motto.
Light lunch, light dinner, light snacks.
And salads, whether main or side dishes,
are the lightweight champions. But when
the salad is an important part of the
meal, it ought to be special.
New ingredients can create salad
excitement. For instance, a simple

main course with the addition of nuts,
curry seasoning, rice and diced Granny
Smith apples. A tangy, side dish
combination of bulgar wheat, apples,
fresh vegetables and seasonings in a
lemony marinade served with cold
chicken or luncheon meats is a great

Good Hands

?21 Reid Avenue Port St. Joe

By Laura Geddie
In the. past' few months The
Friends of the Gulf County Public
Library in Port St. Joe have add-
ed to the services and resources
of the library three items of some
note. Two of these have already
been reported in The Star. These
are the establishment of a library
outlet in Jeanies' Let's Knit Yam
Shop on Reid Avenue and the ad-
dition of two CD-ROMs. "
At Jeanie's Let's Knit you
may purchase second-hand hard-
back books, (50t) arid paperback
books, (25t.) You are urged to do-
nate"b6ol' surPTiUs'directiy to the
shop for resale rather than carry-
ing them to thed'llbrary. The pro-
prietor, Jeanie Mims, will credit
V the public library.
The CD-ROMS, phone discs
include "USA Residential, East
and West" and "USA Business".
This addition provides patrons arnI-
electronic national telephone di-
rectory which condenses and re-
places umpteen individual shelf
telephone directories. These com-
puter discs save patrons time and
releases shelf space for other
holdings, such as the newest ad-_
dition, which is a well known
business tool.
Just added -to the library is

These just-mentioned acqui-
sitions broaden the scope of the
library user-the avid reader as
well as the researcher, but the
new additions are\only a minutia
of the library's present needs, if
the gap between the library's col-
lections, resources and services
and a fast moving society is to be
At the request of The Friends,
the Librarian, Jean Fallski, iden-
tified the following Items as the-
current needs in the library col-
1. A wider range of journals
and other periodicals, published
as well as computer print-outs.
Patrons, including high school
and college students, find recent
research and the newest informra-
tion journals related to science,
medicine, health, law, etc.
2. Up-to-date encyclopedias:
The World Book. Encyclopedia
Britannica. Americana. The new-
est set on the library shelves is
five years old.
3. Add to the book collection
in the children's section; which is
a highly used section of the li-
brary. There needs to be more
easy, picture and read-aloud
books. Several copies are needed
of popular titles. Poetry collec-
tion, all levels, is scant. Upgrade
collections for older children, 4-6
grade levels..
Some of the purposes of the
Friends of the Library are to pro-
mote, encourage, aid and assist

the continued advancement of
the library. This effort includes
publicizing the library's activities,
facilities and resources and seek-
ing assistance in its promotion.

The SHIP program was created for the purpose of providing funds to local governments as an incentive for
-the creation of local housing partnerships, to expand production of and preserve affordable housing, and to
increase housing related employment. Gulf County will receive $250,000 for Fiscal Year 1994-1995.
The procedure for receiving funds under the program is through an application process as outlined.
Distribution and qualification for the funds is determined by the combined household gross (before taxes) income
as indicated in the chart below.
S t.. The program has been divided into three strategies:
S Strategy 1:
Purchase Assistance ($150,000 has been allocated for this strategy) applications will be accepted on a
continuing basis until all funds allocated have been encumbered.
The process for selection of recipients for this strategy will be based on the applicant having an approved
loan application from a qualified lender; meeting the affordability criteria (monthly mortgage payments, including
taxes and insurance, does not exceed 30% annual gross median income for the family size), meeting the income
guidelines established for low (LI) and moderate income (MOD)families. .
It is estimated that 13 households will benefit from this strategy ( 7 low income (LI) and 6 moderate income
(MOD) families).
The median purchase price for this strategy will be $50,000, for new and existing home with a maximum
loan of $10,000. fordownpayment and a maximum of $2,000 for closing cost with a total not to exceed $12,000 @
3% for 10 years.
Strategy 2:
Rehabilitation Grant ($30,000 has been allocated for this strategy).
Selection of applicants for this strategy will be by a lottery method. Each application will be numbered and
numbers will be randomly drawn. As numbers are drawn applicants will be placed in numerical order.
Eligibility for this strategy is based on income level for persons in the very low income (VLI) households (see
chart below)..
It is estimated that 10 households will benefit from this strategy. Persons receiving a grant in the Fiscal Year
1993 1994 program are not eligible.
The maximum grant award will be $3,000.
Strategy 3:
Rehabilitation Loan ($40,000 has been allocated for this strategy).

Selection of applicants for this strategy will be the same as above for Strategy 2, Rehabilitation Grants.
Eligibility for this strategy is based on income level for persons in the very low income (VLI) and low income
(LI) households. (see chart below).
It is estimated that 13 households will benefit from this strategy ( very low income (VLI) and 5 low income
(L)' households).
The maximum loan amount will be $5,000.
Point of contact for this program is Bo Williams, 229-6125 (Tues. Fri.), County Courthouse, and in

Weekend of Home Improvement

at LongAvenue Baptist Church

Home Improvement weekend,
May 5 7, at Long Avenue Baptist
Church can be for a family what
remodeling is for a house, accord-
ing to the church's pastor, Curtis
'The weekend activities are
designed to help families spruce
up and up-date family relation-
ships. It's like getting an annual
check-up to ensure you're in good
health," Clark said.
'There is a myth that once a
good marriage, always a good
marriage. Family relationships
are like houses. We think nothing
of building onto or remodeling
our home to meet our changing
family's needs, but we often don't
think about our relationships
needing to change as well."
Home Improvement weekend
includes something for all mem-
bers of the family. Glen Money.
associate pastor/minister to sin-
gle adults at First Baptist Church
in Albany, Georgia, will lead the
weekend events for couples %and
single adults. Special children's
and youth events will be held at 7
p.m. Saturday evening.
Money said he will draw from
his experiences as a pastoral
. counselor and minister with sin-
gle adults to help couples and
single adults improve family rela-
tionships. Money also has exten-
sive counseling experience and is
an associate member of the Amer-
ican Association of Marriage and
Family Therapists.
He noted that single adults of
all ages and at all stages of life
can benefit from all four of the
weekend sessions he.will lead. A
session designed especially for
single 'adults will be held at 10
a.m. Saturday.
"Being a single adult in to-
day's world carries its own
unique set of challenges. We'll
look at those challenges and how
to grow personally to have
healthy relationships with oth-
ers," Money said.
The pastoral counselor noted
that he deals with many couples
each year whose only problem
has been neglecting to keep their
relationship up-to-date. Money
warns the weekend focus is not a
cure all. Participants will have to
be willing to apply principles in
order to remodel their families for

the future.
t "I would live to give people
the keys to a mansion with a per-
fect family life. Instead, what I
will offer is a handful of tools and
a vacant lot," Money said.
Clark said Money is known
for his creativity in leading group
sessions and participants can ex-
pect to enjoy his humorous and
down-to-earth approach dealing
with family issues.
The weekend will begin with a
6 p.m. dinner Friday evening with
a 7 to 9 p.m. seminar on "Who
Am I and Who Am I Married To?"
The 10 a.m. Saturday seminar

will focus on "Building a Better
Me for Better Relationships." A 6
p.m. pot luck supper will precede
the Saturday 7 to 9 p.m. seminar,
"His Needs Her Needs." Money
will also speak during the Sunday
11 a.m. worship service with spe-
cial emphasis on the family.
The community is invited to
attend the Home Improvement
weekend. Child care for children
from birth through kindergarten
is available. Please call the
church office at 229-8691, for
more information, or to make res-
ervations for the Friday dinner or
child care.

T.E.A.M. Trips
Northward of us are two very
interesting places to visit as the
T.E.A.M. classes discovered' last
week. First, a trip to see Betsy
Knight and her favorite fowl. The
classes saw several species of
',jwl, bald eagles and even wolves.
Then on to the ostrich farm
where Mr. Jim told them that os-
trich meat tastes like red meat
and, that the hide Is used for
boots, etc. An ostrich hatches
about 60 eggs yearly and each
egg sells for $1,500. The ostrich
has only two toes with one having
a large claw. They can be ridden,

Progress Reports Go Out Friday
For the last time this year,
progress reports go out on Friday.
You may think, 'Well, it's too late

Well, it isn't. We believe in "keep-

Never give up.
Retiring Teachers
Even though our school does
not have anyone retiring this
year, there are two teachers retir-

wish them our best. Congrats to

Caroline Norton and Ruth Phil-

banquet next week.
"If I Were 48 Years Old"
By Two Third Graders
Lindsay Miller says that ....
"If I were 48, then I would 'be old..
But I could still have fun. I could
do lots of things. I would already
have me a car. I would have lots
of stuff, I mean lots of stuff. My
kids would have their kids and
their kids would have kids. I can
still have a birthday."
Laura Husband says. "If I
were 48, I'd be old. I'd lay around
my house watching little kids
play and maybe go and play with
them. I will be helpful and cheer-
ful even when I'm 48. I'd help lit-
tle kids learn stuff and help them,
cheer up when they're sad."

Sixth Grade Field Trip
Herman Jones' sixth graders
recently enjoyed a field trip to St.
Vincent's Island. The students
rode their big yellow bus to Indi-
an Pass where they donned their
life jackets and rode the ferry to
the Island.
Once on the Island, they em-
barked on a tractor-driven wagon
which took them over all the al-
lowable trails, making many,
stops along the way., Some were
along the bay side (nearest Apa-
lachicola) where the oyster beds
are and where they found shards
of Indian pottery and an alligator
scute. They also hiked over the
middens and walked on the gulf
Many forms of wildlife were
spotted, ranging from sanbar
deer, wild hogs, snakes and birds
,to a baby alligator.
The group ate lunch at,Dr.
Pierce's old home, built in 1910,
and viewed the grave of George
Hatch, the .first, white man to
have owned St. Vincent's Island.
The trip was one that every-
one enjoyed tremendously. So
much so that they told everyone
how' they wanted to go back
someday.. ,

Kids Pre-School Regis ration

Doug Kent of the Environ-
mental Health Unit spoke to the
sixth graders about his work as a
health department official.
During this particular pres-
entation he told of the young ele-
mentary student who found a
baby wild animal, took it home
with him because it looked cute.
The animal then bit someone in
the family. The baby animal was
found to, have been rabid.
Through a video supported
lecture, the student learned
about identifying and dealing
with wild animals that may be
carriers of rabies.
Kindergarten & Second Grade
Field Trip
Jo Herhandez's second grad-
ers and Kathy Arnold's kinder-
gartners embarked on a field trip
to the Apalachicola National Es-
tuarine and Research Center in
Apalachicola last Friday.
While there, the students
learned many things about an es-
tuarine with its many plants and
critters that live in it. They also
visited St. Vincent's Wildlife Ref-
uge Information Center nearby.

dedication service of Godfrey Hall.
It was such a blessing and we
want to share it with our readers.
Parents, friends and students
gathered together Sunday after-
noon, April 23 in a service led by.
Rev. Fred Goebert to dedicate the
new building. The service was one
of songs and words of praise to
God for His faithfulness.
The Ladies Ensemble of Faith'
Christian began the. service and
Rev. Goebert gave a short history
of the school and its reasons for
existence;:' to Introduce young
people to Jesus Christ as Savior
and to teach them God's word, as
well as give thbn an excellent ed-
ucation. The school began in the
fall of 1974 with 12 kindergarten
students and now has 180 stu-
dents from age three through
grade 12.
Several men who were instru-
mental in the construction of the,
building were honored by plaques
of appreciation and all who
helped in any way were thanked.
The library in the new building
was named the Jackie Quarles Li-
brary in honor ofMrs. Quarles,
who was one of the founders, the
first teacher, and is now coordi-
nator of the school. The building
was named Godfrey Hall In honor
of Mr. and Mrs. Elmore Godfrey
who are charter members of Faith.
Bible Church and who have, been
faithful supporters of the ,school.
Mr. Godfrey has been a board
member of Faith Christian since
its beginning..
The service closed with the
singing of 'To God Be The Glory",
a fitting end to the service of
thanksgiving and praise.

Blacks Becoming

Minority Within

A Minority Party

"Voting by race is politically unsound
& morally unjustified"--MLK, Jr.
Feisty Sen. Betty Holzendorf, D-Jacksonville, strolled back onto the
Florida Senate floor as last week's session for what is sometimes called
the upper body of the Legislature was closing and flippantly asked
President Jim Scott, R-Fort Lauderdale, to have the clerk record a
favorable vote for her on all the day's bills.
"I don't know about Monday (this week is showdown time on all. the
big issues), but mark me favoring the bills today," said Sen. Holzendorf.
"I don't think we should do that!" Scott purred back. "It will be
confusing and a lot of extra work to staff and...isn't quite right if you've
been away from your desk that much."
The polite exchange marked what is becoming apparent after the
November elections that gave Florida its first Republican Senate in
more than 100 years and the nation its first Republican Congress in 40
Black legislators have become a minority in a minority and it is
more than a little frustrating to them. They have been polarized on the
wrong end of issues such as prisons and charter schools have passed
by overwhelming votes in both houses this session. Sen. Holzendorf led
the protest on the old capitol steps by Florida's 20 black lawmakers (all
Democrats), then cornered Scott in his office and got a mild concession
to hold another confirmation hearing this week for Labor Secretary
Doug Jamerson and Health and Rehab Chief Jim Towey. Their
appointments were delayed, some say to gain political leverage.
Ms. Holzendorf is about to take the "bantam rooster" title away
from Senate dean W. D. Childers, R-Pensacola, but we'll have to change
the wording some, mainly because she is a lot better looking than the
old Democratic rooster who turned Republican this year.
, There is a certain ironic humor about all this, although it isn't
really funny to older, more sensitive reporters like this one who
sincerely believe-we're all in this together.
Florida blacks and others throughout the country are victims
(mostly of their own making) of "political apartheid," the ridiculous
meandering of voting district boundaries to produce a black majority
and assure the election of blacks.
They and the. Democratic liberal politicians who broker their causes
didn't realize that .by segregating blacks into voting districts they put'
them in a position to be ignored and paved the way to Republican
victories. .The Republicans who get less black votes won in the close
races against Democrats who lost one of their basic voting blocs when
blacks were meandered out of their districts.
The fact is that attempts to create racial districts to assure the
outcome of elections goes against the conventional wisdom of the
founders of this country. We're a nation of many races seeking freedom
- a "melting pot" if you want the old. fashion description and your.
complexion or religion doesn't matter. It really doesn't among
right-thinking Americans.

Do We Go From here that voting simply by race is "politically unsound
and morally unjustified." He had that one right. He could have added
that it would also be very frustrating to those who try it.
*** *** *** ***
The Florida House last week turned a poisonous rattle-snake loose
on the court system when it passed a bill to keep the names of jurors
secret in all criminal trials. Let's hope the bad idea dies in conference. It
was probably a reaction to a Charlotte County case last year when a
kidnapping victim wrote threatening letters to Jurors for finding the
defendant not guilty. It could have been the 0. J. Simpson Case or just
a slap at the news media. We don't really know, because there was no
debate on the bill that passed 116-1. If it becomes law, the bill will
make a mockery of the concept of openness in the criminal justice
system which is suffering a serious loss of public confidence' right now
anyway. The spectacle of Simpson case in which the average citizen is
being shown. everyday on TV that money talks 'loud and' clear in our
justice system has literally put the system on. trial itself. The big
question that the people need answered is whether our present jury
selection system is flawed to the extent that lawyers can stack juries in
favor of their wealthy clients? There is a lot of evidence suggesting that
is true and the average citizen has a right to know it.

News Round-Up
With education advocates kicking and screaming all the way, the
Florida legislature this week is heading toward adjournment with a $39
billion no-new-taxes budget that meets public demand formore prisons
and safety on its streets, but little else. In fact, conferees negotiating the
differences between the House and Senate budget versions said a
do-little session could be what the voters had in mind when in
November they elected enough Republicans to take the Senate and
narrow the House Democratic majority to six votes. "Dictatorship is a
good way of government if you want to pass a lot of stuff. We don't want
to," said House minority leader Dan Webster, D-Orlando. He was
echoing a sentiment expressed by others that strong Democratic
leaders with whopping majorities in both houses are not around to
ramrod bills into law as they were in the past.
SMOKING BILL: Tobacco companies won their first skirmish with
Gov. Lawton Chiles when the House Commerce Committee
unanimously passed a bill. repealing the sneak 1994 law that lifted any
blame from smokers for illnesses related to their habit. The bill passed
last year in the closing minutes without debate. Many Legislators said
they were duped into voting for the measure and feared it could be
extended to all manufacturers of widely used products, including
alcoholic beverages and hamburgers.
Speculation is widespread in the capitol that the bill will be tacked
onto a measure Chiles wants in order to avoid his certain veto.
Chiles chief lawyer Dexter Douglas said the pool of state lawyers
preparing the suits against tobacco companies to pay damages to the
state for treating smokers on Medicaid will continue their efforts even if
the law is' repealed.
DEATH PENALTY: Another bill pitting lawmakers against Gov.
Lawton Chiles passed the House by a 113-1 vote without debate which
allows judges to Ignore jury recommendations of life sentences instead
of the death penalty for convicted murderers.
It supersedes a Florida Supreme Court ruling requiring judges to
give great weight to jury recommendations in capital cases.
Gov. Chiles opposes the measure on grounds juries not judges
should decide who lives or dies. He hasn't announced whether he will
veto the bill which also expected to be passed in the Senate.
ELECTION REFORMS: The 'Florida Senate gutted Secretary of
State Sandra Mortham's election reform package of bills which would
have scrapped public 'campaign financing in statewide races and
eliminated second primary runoffs.
Some reforms retained in the package by the Senate would
eliminate fraud in the citizen initiative process, but her reform
proposals were watered down considerably by senators who
acknowledged the House and Gov. Chiles would have prevented their
"We managed to accomplish as much reform as would have
survived the House and governor!" said Sen. Charlie Crist, R-St.
PROGRAM BUDGETING:' Remember that reform last year that was
supposed to allow legislators to see how programs are performing before
they are automatically funded again. It is stalled in the conference
committee. House members included the 'language to push on with
program budgeting. The Senate to its shame did not.
Performance budgeting is especially critical this year as lawmakers
wrestle with decisions on just how much to fund prisons, education
and social programs such as welfare reform. You can bet for that if
lawmakers leave it to the bureaucrats to decide which is what the issue
is all about Floridians are going to be ill-served. It is too good of an
idea to be allowed to fall through the cracks.
WATER FIGHT: Fiery great-grandmother of the Florida House, Rep.
Helpn Spivey, D- Crystal River, withdrew a proposal to require studies
that would have helped rural counties north of HillsboroUgh and
Pinellas fight offraids on their water resources. It.helped set off a noisy
protest in Tallahassee this week against water raids. This fight is just
