Dividing Up Courthouse Space... Again!


Tax Collector,

Supervisor of

Elections Still

Need More

Office Room
.The age old question of court-
house space popped up again in
Tuesday evening's County Com-
mission meeting. It came up
innocently enough when Comm.
Billy Traylor mentioned that Tax
Collector Eda Ruth Taylor needed
more space in her office.
Traylor's comments spurred a
lengthy round table discussion by
the Board concerning space
' needs of constitutional officers
throughout 'the courthouse corn-
plex.
"The Board's general consen-
sus seemed to be that Tax
Collector Taylor and Supervisor of
Elections Cora Sue Robinson
were in need of more space in
their offices. Comm. Warren
Yeager suggested the Board look
at the feasibility of expanding the
courthouse by taking in part of
the foyer area of the facility for
use by the Tax Collector's office.
Other options discussed
included moving County
Administrator Harry Wells' office,
allowing the '- Supervisor of
Elections to expand into the space
which adjoins the office's current
location.
The Board asked Chief
Administrator Don Butler to draw
Uip some plans and cost estimate
to be looked over at their next
meeting .
Highland View and
Beaches Water System .
The Board, following the rec-
ommendation of Chief Admini-
strator Butler, contracted with
Preble-Rish Engineering to con-
duct a three-phase engineering
study and analysis of existing
problems that have plagued both
the Highland View and St. Joe
Beaches water system.
Highland View's" water tower
has been a bone of contention
with the board for quite some
time. Water level problems'
believed to be caused by the tower
water level switch system will be
addressed in phase one of the'
study
Board Chairman Michael
Hammond recalled one occasion
when the switch failed to turn off
water to the tank causing it to
overflow, flooding lots adjoining
the water department property,
and heavily damaged a shed.
Some type of overflow protec-
tion will be included in the study.
Phase Two of the project will
evaluate water pressure and vol-
ume problems with St. Joe
Beaches' water system and will
make recommendations for

to alleviate the problem.
Redistricting
The Board of County Com-
missioners has been kicking
around options concerning what
to do with Gulf County's five dis-
trict boundaries for several
months.
Gulf is currently under court
decree establishing single mem-
ber districts with one minority
district created in the mandate.
Nathan Peters, Jr. is the com-
missioner elected from the minor-
ity district and has resisted board
efforts to change the process in
any manner other than those
spelled out specifically in the con-
,sent decree handed down by the


Scouts.
A recent Supreme Court deci-
sion Invalidating race as the only
criteria'" for forming district
boundaries refueled the board's
Interest in pursuing other voting
alternatives, specifically estab-
lishing a (combination of at-
large/single member districts.
In past discussions the board
has suggested retaining a single
member minority district while
going to at-large voting in. the
other county districts.
Board Attorney Barbara
Sanders told the board 'the
SSupreme Court case didn't exact-
ly parallel Gulfs situation, noting
It dealt with Congressional dis-
tricts spread over a much larger
area in Georgia.
The board decided to proceed
with filing a petition in federal
court to revisit the consent decree
and to set up a meeting with the
class members in the suit and
.their representatives to discuss
voting alternatives. Commissioner
Peters opposed the action.

$2.5-$3 Million Road Issue Planned

By Board To Get Lower Interest Rate and More Paving

In a special meeting Wednesday, 1July 12, Gulf County's -commissioners
unanimously decided to rework the county's road paving bond issue to gener-
ate $2.5 to $3 million in new paving funds.
The county will employ Raymond James and Associates, inc. to handle the
hew bonding issue which calls fornot less than $250,000 and not more than
$300,000 of Gulfs Secondary Road and Bridge Gas Tax revenues to be com-
mitted annually to the bond issue.
The county recently paid off a, 1977 bond issue of $2.2 million, financing
through Secondary Road arid Bridge Gas Tax money, freeing up those funds.
Gulf County receives between $360,000 and $400,000 annually from this
source.
The Board's plan calls for "refinancing" Gulfs most recent road -bond issue
of $3.6 million, funded by a six cent local option gas tax, in order to take advan-_
tage of a lower interest rate. This would save approximately $145,000 in inter-
est payments over the next 15 years when the bond matures in 2009.
Ralph Cellon, representing Raymond James, Assoc., outlined several options
explaining the county could reduce their interest rates somewhere between one
and two percent, saving money on their current bond debt while getting more
mileage out' of new money that would cost less to repay.
The bond, funds have not been established by the Board, but several major
county road projects have been discussed.



Ambulance Service "On Its Own"

Monday at Noon; Director Hired.

Headquarters'Will Be In Courthouse Complex;
Medical Director, Billing Arrangements In Place

sor. He received his training while
serving as a firefighter/paramedic
in the U. S. Air Force, stationed at
Tyndall Air Force Base during
most of his four years of service.
McGuffin said two full-time
crews of paramedics and EMTs
had been hired to man the ser-
vice, along with several part-time
personnel to supplement the full-
time crews when needed.
He also received approval
from the County Commissioners
to apply for $300,000 in matching
grant assistance to purchase two
new ambulances, various emer-
gency equipment, communication
system, and supplement para-
medic and EMT salaries.
Thomas L. Curry, M.D. will
serve as the Medical Director for
the squad and North Florida
Medical Center, Inc. will handle
the billing and collection services.
u Finishing touches' will -be
completed on the ambulance
building this week according to


County Maintenance Supervisor
Joe Bearden. The building is

Back the Mayor I


In Finding Best Solution for Community
IT SEEMS AS IF a segment of the population of Mexico
Beach has placed us right in the middle of a controversy over
the installation of a sewer collection system whether or not we
intended to become involved. We can tell you now, flatly and un-
equivocally, we do not wish to be involved. That's their commu-
nity; not ours. The only thing we were trying to do is advise the
people of Mexico Beach what happened to us, personally, involv-
ing sewer treatment plants in the City of Port St. Joe; what we
were personally involved in and what we see down the road for
Mexico Beach, whether they want to believe it or not. We firmly
believe a goodly amount of what we experienced [both personal
and as a community] you will experience.
We firmly believe Mexico Beach will be told, sooner or later-
by the Environmental Protection Agency or some other agency
with like clout-to install an adequate sewage disposal system
and eliminate your septic tank method of sewage disposal as be-
ing inadequate. You can do and say what you want, but we firm-
ly believe that command is just down the road.
WE FIRMLY BELIEVE THE best person to deal with that
problem is the Mayor of the City, whomever he/she happens to
be. In this case, he happens to be Gary Gaddis. Some don't want
to leave it to Gary. Some'do. We can tell you now that our reac-
tion from the subject reveals that three times as many do trust
him to do the right thing by the people of Mexico Beach as feel
he is trying to "put something over on the people".
Investigating improvements for the City is Gary's job. Those
"violently against" should be helping him to find out what is best
for the City, instead of immediately believing the worse scenario
and heaping coals of fire upon his head,
We say we need bright young men in government but it's just
such actions as these which discourage "bright young men"
against making themselves available for public service.
WE AGREE WITH SUCH members of the opposition as Tollie
Mullis, who discussed the matter with us in our office and ex-
pressed the need to disagree [if necessary] without being disa-
greeable.,
We' believe, first off, that Mexico Beach definitely should find
the best method of getting sewage collection and treatment. [Tol-
lie thinks the community doesn't need it, in order to keep down
the burgeoning growth experience of a "Destin" or a "Panama
City Beach"].
It isn't cheap. There are no "let the government pay for it"
deals out there. Maybe part of the bill but certainly not all of it.
We believe the time to oppose, or work for, a sewage disposal
system is that time when we KNOW what's involved and do not
rely on 'I believe so', or 'I think so'; not even 'I was told' will do
adequately in this case.
Back your Mayor and Commission, even if it is distasteful to
you personally to do so. Give him your help instead of your road-
blocks. Get estimated costs to go the offered Tyndall route and
explore the possibilities of coming to Port St. Joe. This route may
give you the service and may cost less by virtue of the fact it will
offer a trunk line to the entire beach area and thus MAY dilute
the cost.
Help in exploring every avenue available to you, without the
mind-set of getting it for free.
You're not going to get such a deal; but your community
-needs adequate service!


Wastebasket Material
THIS HAS NOTHING to do with the above message, but is
strictly to get it off our chest and maybe save some prospective
letter writers a little time and energy.
This newspaper will not reprint in its pages, letters we
receive which are not signed by the writer.
There's no 'ifs', 'and's', or 'but's' about it. We will not do it.
So if you are actually writing to us to have your opinion made
public, sign your name or have your epistle tossed in the trash
can.
Another requirement is that you write nothing libelous. We
are as liable for printing your letter, as you are for writing it. We
do not intend to get sued, merely to allow you to. vent your
spleen about something which isn't a proven fact.
Keep your language "G" rated. Some newspapers will print
offensive or border-line dirty language but this, one definitely will
not!
So, lambaste us as you will, or agree with as vehemently as
you please; but abide by these guidelines to have your letter
published.


Hunker Down with Kes



Nothing To Spare


I signed up several years ago
to write little, harmless stories
about growing* up down on the
farm and for the most part I have
adhered to those confinements.,
Today is an exception. Today I'm
chapped! Some imbecile stole the
spare tire right out from under
my brand new truck!
Wait a minute. I know what
you're thinking-"He doesn't have
a brand new truck." Listen, I sub-
scribe to the Cliff Sanborn theory.
It's brand new the first five years
you own, it. The next five years it's
just new. As you get into the sec-
ond decade with it you may admit
that it's showing a little wear and
tear. The first truck I owned hung
in there for seventeen years and
one hundred, eighty thousand


miles . .
A man who will steal the
spare Lre right off your brand
new truck will come into your
house when you ain't looking.
I was at a ball game and I
pulled my chair up close to the
back of my pick-up in an attempt
to partially hide myself from a
non-relenting sun. I happened to
glance over my left rear tire up
under the tree-sun of a guni I
crawled underneath and looked
* everywhere. No spare tire! I
watched another inning and
crawled back under that truck-
maybe I'd just overlooked it.
"Cathy, somebody took my
spare tire!"
'You're kidding." She started
to laugh until she glanced over
and saw my face. "When did they
get'it?"
Now, how do I know when
they got it? Going out each morn-
ing and crawling up under my ve-
hicle to see if the spare is still at-
tached is not high on my priority
list. I don't usually even think


about it until one of the others
goes flat. I d been to Orlando a
couple of months back and to
Young Harris, Georgia and Talla-
hassee . and I couldn't re-
member the last time I'd actually
seen the spare tire. It couldn't
have jumped off that cable and
tie down system by itself.
I tell you, a man who will
steal the spare tire right off your
brand new truck will "happen
upon" your best coon dog up on
the road and slip your collar
off . .
My Dad had a spare tire on
our old '53 Ford pick-up. He had
used it once and never bothered
to tie it back to its little cut out
spot on the side of the bed. He
just threw it in the back. No one
ever stole it. EVER! He did loan it
out once to Mr. Will Hartung. Mr.
Hartung brought it back all
cleaned up and bulging with
plenty of air. Dad tossed it in the
'bed of that old pick-up and im-
mediately ran. two heifers and a
big cow in there with it. Dad


by Kesley Colbert


didn't pay much attention to his
spare either. It just didn t dawn
on us back in the filfties that any
one would stoop so low as to take
another man's tire.
Often times when Dad would
pick up a big load of feed from
Brush Brothers Milling Company,
he'd lean the spare against the
wall to create more "laying
space". When we were finished we
seldom remembered to toss that
tire up on top of our load. We'd go
back the next Saturday and get
it-it was always there, leaned up
against that,brick wall, just wait-
ing for us.
When I got old enough to
drive I'd cruise the parking lot
down at the Polar Bar. That place
ran rampant with ducktails,
black leather jackets, motorcycle
boots and Marion Brando swag-
ger. Mother feared for my life eve-
ry time I drove by for a chocolate
malt. But not even the "Black-
board' Jungle" crowd would take

It's a Complicated, but BetterAge In Which We Are Living


THIS IS BECOMING a com-
plicated age. It's an age which we
elderly folks don't understand
half of the things the younger set
seems to take in their stride.
You want to talk to someone
across town or across the state,
or across the country? No prob-
lem. If you know enough of the
correct numbers!
Do you want to record a par-
ticular television program? That,
too, is no problem, if you know
how to punch the proper informa-
tion into your VCR If you
,have a VCR. How many of you
out there don't even own a VCR
because you. are afraid you
couldn't remember from day to
day how to operate it?
There are even such simple
appliances as a portable, battery-
operated, radio which contains a
shortwave capability, a FM band,
an AM band, a tape recorder, a
cassette player, a compact disc, a
loud-speaker and lord only knows


ETAOIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


what else is on that simple little
radio.., if you know how to dial
it up!


THERE IS A simple digital
clock on my car. When the time
changed recently, from standard
to daylight savings time, the clock
had to be set. How to do it. A sim-
ple half-hour search through the
owner's manual showed me how,
provided I had the capability of
understanding the electronic lan-
guage and code printed in the di-
rections telling me how to change
time on the clock. It all has to be
done again in the fall, you know,


There's knobs and directions
all over my car and every other
model sold these days. Knobs
with symbols on them to tell you
about everything from changing
rear view mirrors to the positions
of the seats. I had a problem fas-
tening my seat belt while sitting
in the seat. It was simple to pull
over to the side of the road, park,
and move to where I had a full
view of the seat belt receptacle,
with the directions printed on the
top. There's no way I could read
them with the car moving.

And that was advertised as a
simple seat belt latch!


THE OTHER DAY a supplier
of materials here at the office sent
a request for my social security
number. We had been purchasing
from the finnrm for years and now
they had to have my social secur-
ity number
I can't buy simple things we
use every day here at the office
unless they have my social secur-
ity number. How about that?
\ The same 'is true with banks;
not just one, but all of them!
The other day I went in ohe of
them to cash a check I had been
given and the sweet young thing
behind the counter asked, "What
is your account number, Mr.
Ramsey?" Well, she had me there,
but I figured it didn't matter since
I just wanted to cash a check, not
make a withdrawal, and I said so.
"Oh, no!" she said. "We have
to know your account number
before we can cash a check."
That little lady had waited on


me a hundred or so times. She
knew who 4 was. Still she had to
have my account number. "It's
the rules," she said. "I'm not al-'
lowed to cash a check unless you,
can tell me your account num-
bei-," she said.
She was accommodating,
however. She went to the comput-
er and had it look up my number
so I could cash the check. It's a
good thing,, too. I don't know
what my account number is with-
out looking it up!

AND THE MATTER OF com-
puters has things complicated,
too.
I'm almost afraid to charge
anything, these days. If I have
problems with a mistake in an ac-
count, it may never be straight-
ened out. And, who hasn't had a
problem or two with accounts
these days?
I'll tell you one problem I
have never had. I have never had
a problem with having an ac-


count mistakenly marked paid
when I knew it wasn't; or too
much money being credited to my
account at any bank. I manage to
avoid that kind of mistake.
The nearest I ever came to
having a mistake made in my fa-
vor was in the days prior to every-
thing being run by computers. I
had purchased a range from W.
C. Roche and didn't pay. for it
when I got it. A couple of months
later, I went by his store to pay
for the range and he had no
record of it, nor did he remember
my buying it.
But I was able to convince
him I owed him $300, without
having to tell him my account
number or show my social Secur-
ity number. And it was all done
without computers!
But I wouldn't bring back the
simpler days, you understand,
even if people did deal on a more
personal basis then. It's more im-
pressive using a computer and
owning an account number.

Senior Citizens Having "Open House" On Their New Building

Erected with the Cooperation and Help of Citizens, Firms and Governments in Gulf County


The realization of the dream
of the late Stiles Brown of Port St.
Joe is. finally beginning to take
shape before Gulf County's eyes.
Before his death, Mr. Brown
wanted to build a center where
every possible necessary* service
could be easily obtained for any
elderly person in Gulf County.
And so began the work.
In 1994, after negotiations in-
volving, among others, the Port
St. Joe City Commission and Gulf
County Commission, a suitable
location for the center was agreed
upon by all parties. A 50-year
lease was signed for the property,
with the instrumental guidance of
Commissioners Warren Yeager
and Charles Tharpe. The property
chosen was at the Gulf County
Courthouse complex in Port St.
Joe, adjacent to the Gulf County
Public Library.
A tremendous boost to ini-
tiate funding efforts for the con-
struction of the building was giv-
en by the local governmental
agencies. The City of Port St. Joe
donated $25,000, while Gulf
County officials contributed
$30,000. These generous amounts
were complemented by a $10,000
gift from the Albert I. duPont
Foundation.
As a pledge of faith and coop-
eration, Citizens Federal Savings
Bank arranged for a financial line
of credit for the project. Following
initial substantial donations, the
Board of Directors of the Senior
Citizens Association began an in-
Stense fund-raising campaign
which continues today. During
the past year the association
members have held monthly din-
ners, bingo, yard sales and other
sales events, thus far earning
over $40,.000.
An Honorary Membership
Drive, held last year,, was suc-
cessful in recruiting over 200 per-
sons who pledged a donation of
$10 or morel annually, for the,
':next consecu tve five years.
* Many individuals, organiza-
tions and businesses of the com-
munity have responded to cam-
;paigns to sponsor the purchase of
specific supplies for the building.
' Two, five and ten dollars were the
"sale prices" received during the
brick campaign, while windows
and doors" were sponsored at
cost. Trusses were offered for
purchase as an honorary memori-
al of a friend or family member.
However, even after this con-
tinual, attempt. over $60,000 of
[ the construction cost remains to
be raised through additional
planned events.
All the while these funding
projects were being carried out,
the actual hands-on efforts were
begun as well. The first was ac-
complished when Robert Crozier,
area architect, agreed to accept
the project, putting to use the
plans he had earlier provided the
Franklin County Senior Citizens
Association for the building of
their center. These plans were
then cooperatively examined and
modified by the building inspec-
tor and committee, Board of Di-
rectors and County Commission-
ers to make the building

another man's spare tire.
I can tell you about my Dad.
If you needed a tire, you didn't
have, to slip under the cover of
darkness and snake it out when
no one was looking. You could
knock on the front door and
ask-he'd help you load it up.
A man who would steal the
spare tire right off your brand
new truck is the guy back in little
league that picked up your glove
"by mistake", got home and
quickly took some chimney soot
and blacked out your name.
I don't know if my insurance
covers missing spare tires or not.
With my luck I've got a pretty
good idea .., it's probably one
of those "no fault" situations.
I'm looking for the oldest,
most rusted out rim I can find.
And I aim to put on it a tire with
about ten miles left on it. Next
time a thief crawls under my
truck-I'll give him some aggra-
vation.

aesthetically complimentary to
existing and future structures in
the courthouse complex.
Following are some of the
highlights of the progression of
the project to its current status:
Sue Marley & Associates
performed and donated a survey
of the site.
Preble Rish Engineering
performed the site plan for the
project.
Harmon Heavy Equipment
donated the labor, supervision
and equipment necessary to re-
move over 15 large pine trees to
clear the construction site.
Ike Mincy graciously agreed
to act as general contractor.
The Gulf County Road De-
partmeAt employees hauled in
and leveled off literally tons of fill
dirt to the construction area.
The City of Port St. Joe do-
nated all the pipe and labor re-
quired to run water and sewer
lies to the facility.
S. The City of Port St. Joe also
donated the use of a huge crane
with a 60 foot boom from the
Wastewater Treatment Plant. This
aided tremendously in the place-
ment of the building's trusses.
Bill Quarania (Wild Billders)
donated the labor needed in the
completion of the metal roof.
Many individual contractors
and businesses mentioned have
given their expert assistance to
the project at an adjusted fee as
their means of support.
In celebration of the sup-
port received by the associa-
tion bringing the project to this
point, the Senior Citizens Asso-
ciation Board of Directors and
staff invite the public to attend
their Community Appreciation
Day, scheduled for July 29th
from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
at the new center's location.
Refreshments in the form of
free hot dogs and drinks will be
provided by the event's co-
sponsors, M & L Distributors
(Mike and Laurie McGowen, own-
ers) and Shell Gas (Teresa Anton,
local manager). Although the cen-
ter is hot yet completed, tours
will be conducted during this
time by the senior citizens show-
ing the progress achieved through
all of the cooperative efforts.
Jerry Stokoe, association di-
rector, also expressed his appre-.
cilation to the owners and staff of
The Star for their assistance and
cooperation for.the public service
announcements during the past
year.

Dallas Jones, Wewahitchka
City Commission,, approached the
board concerning its request for
the City of Wewahitchka to give
up its $34,000 yearly share of
secondary road and bridge funds
to -the county, to be included in
the county's proposed up-to-three

Jones was 'concerned about
how much paving the City of

give up.
S'The Board obligated them-

needed paving in Wewahitchka.
Commissioner Traylor added,
"Our commitment is to pave what
you need paving."
Comm. Hammond told Jones,
"You can have the $34,000 and do
your own paving with it, or let us
include it in our 'bond and you'll
get a lot more for your money."
The Board decided to set up a

Caterpillars Cause Considerable Damage


During late summer, caterpil-
lars cause problems for gardeners
all over our state. As you know,
caterpillars are the larval stage of
butterflies and moths. While
many of the winged adults are at-
tractive, the damage caused by
the larvae certainly is not. Be-
cause caterpillars are ravenous
feeders, they can cause a consid-
erable amount of damage in a
short time. So, early detection
and prompt counter measures
are very important.
There are many kinds of pest
caterpillars, far too many to cover


'IL.


in a single article, so, I'll talk
about a few of the common ones
you may encounter and comment
on some basic control measures.
My information was provided, in
part, by Extension Entomologist
Dr. Don Short, of the University
of Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Science.
Sod webworms and fall army-
woods seriously damage lawns,
and it's not unusual for both to
attack at the same time. Web-
worms are the smaller of the two
species, reaching a length of only
about three-quarters of an inch,


S_


compared to one-and-a-half inch-
es for armyworms. In general,
both are greenish in the young
stage and turn brown as they ma-
ture. Their feeding is similar, re-,.
sulting in notched or ragged leaf'
edges. However, webworms tend '
to feed in patches, while army-
worms cause more scattered,
damage.
The orange dog caterpillar is
a common pest on citrus trees.
It's black with white markings
and slimy looking. Its eggs, which
look like yellow, beeds, are laid on
the newest plant growth. At ma- .
turity, the orange dog becomes a
swallowtail butterfly.,
If you have ever suddenly felt
a sharp, stinging sensation while
pruning a plant, you may have'"
come in contact with an 10 moth
caterpillar. This caterpillar is pale
green, with two stripes one
white and one'maroon down:
both sides of its body. It has
many clumps of stiff, poisonous
hairs. Touching these are painful
to most people and in some cas-
es, the reaction is bad enough to
require hospitalizaUon. The IO,
moth caterpillar, which is only'
one of several stinging varieties,.
is found on such plants as hibis-: '
cus, poinsettias and palms..
Caterpillars can be controlled
mechanically.. or with chemical,
sprays. If the caterpillars are
large, and few in number, they
can be removed from plants by
hand, or if egg masses are recog- '
nized, these can be destroyed be-.
fore they hatch. Chemical control
materials include sevin, malathi-

Sevin is a stomach poison.
that's good to use on small cater-
pillars that are hard to find'. How-
ever. sevin isn't a very good con-
tact poison. Therefore, it can't be
used against caterpillars that are
already quite large.
Malathion is a good contact
poison. but a poor stomach poi-
son making it better for use on
large caterpillars. Malathion must
be applied thoroughly to insure
contact with all the ',caterpillars.
This can sometimes be hard to do

- especially on large shrubs and
Bacillus thuringienses isn't a
chemical. It's a bacterial concen-
trate that's deadly only to cater-
pillars. It won't harm any other
insects.
When applying pesticides,
you should always use caution
and common sense. Avoid contact
with the concentrate, and stay "ALWAYS ON THE MOVE"
out of the spray drift. Read the FINDING YOUR BUYER
product label carefully and follow
all directions exactly.

"In Memory of'Mike Williamson
How can I explain how much I miss you
Like breathing under water, It's impossible.
The day you left thisearth a part of my

A void remains, one trit mcr, re,er be filled
For you dear brother, were as much

thoughts of you, is an understatement.

He's In Heaven Now
He's in Heaven now One year ago the
gates opened wide.
He stepped upon the golden street to
walk at Jesus' side.
His eyes now behold the glorious beau-
ty beyond compare.
His voice joins the angels' as their
praises ring in the air.
He's in Heaven now God with His
hand wiped away the tears.
No more pain, sickness nor heartache,
gone are sorrows and fears.
He kept the faith, he fought the fight,
the race he has run
As he preached and sanig of the Blessed
One.,
He's in Heaven now reunion with his
Mom and Dad so sweet;
Another of their children joined them
in worship at Jesus' feet.
What joy, no more separations, they are
there forever more
Waiting for their loved ones to gather
on that shore.
He's in Heaven now Oh, how we cried
on the day he went away;
But God gave us a promise true we


can join him someday.
If we trust Him and never, never
doubt, have faith in God
Then on those beautiful, golden streets
we too will trod.

There's A Difference Between


Mortgage
The Finance Division of the
Office of Comptroller regularly re-
ceives complaints against mort-
gage brokers and lenders operat-
ing in Florida. However, many
complaints can be avoided if a
consumer understands the differ-
ence between a mortgage broker-
age business and a mortgage
lender.
The primary function of a
mortgage broker is to act as a
middle person between a borrow-
er and the lending source for a
loan. A mortgage broker receives
a fee for his or her services from
the borrower or in some instAnc-
es from the lender. These fees are
usually expressed by lenders as
"points" which are a percentage of
the loan amount. One point is
equal to one percent of the loan
amount.
Under Florida law, individual
mortgage brokers must be asso-
ciated with a licensed mortgage
brokerage business. A mortgage
broker first obtains a loan appli-
cation from a prospective borrow-
er and then submits the applica-
tion to various lenders until the
loan is accepted or rejected.
While a mortgage broker is an ex-
cellent source for locating a viable
lender,, the brokerage business
cannott fund a mortgage loan or
,guarantee your acceptance by the
lender.
Since many, consumers read
the listings in local newspapers to
find mortgage brokers or lenders,
it .is important that you urider-
stand the primary difference be-
tween the two.
When you go to a mortgage
lender, you .are dealing directly
with the source of funds for your
mortgage loan. That means the
lender sets the parameters for
qualifying for the loan and you
are limited in your choices of loan
products to those offered by the
lender. Some licensed mortgage
lenders too act as brokers and
will place your loan application
with a different lender. This may
occur if either the property or
your qualifications do not con-
form to their guidelines.
A mortgage broker may repre-

Broker and Lender


sent several lenders and therefore
be able to offer you a wide variety
of loan programs. Of course, you
pay for this service via the mort-
gage broker's fee.
Consumers should also re-
member that the company names
of mortgage lenders and, broker-
age companies may not clearly
identify the type of business it is.
For example, consider a hypothet-
ical company named "ABC Fund-
ing, Inc." Is this a mortgage.lend-
er or mortgage brokerage
business? Without further :in-
quiry, it is impossible to tell.
And, since most interest rate
and terms charts listed in news-
papers don't identify the type of
business placing the information,
it is up to you to investigate fur-
ther. It is suggested you start by
calling one,of the regional offices.
A member of the Division of Fi-
nance staff at the Office of Comp-
troller, Department of Banking
and Finance can tell you what
type of license the business.

Vehicle Checks:
The following is a list of dates
and locations that' the Florida'
Highway Patrol troopers in Gulf
and Calhoun counties may con-
duct driver license/vehicle in-
spection checkpoints during the
month of August..
8/1-3-SR 71, near John
Bailey Road and SR 71, near SR
381.
8/4-10-SR 71, near'CR 275
and SR 22, fear the Bay County
line.
8/11-17--SR 69, near. CR
274 and SR 386, near Cypress

holds, and whether there has
been any disciplinary action tak-
en against the license.
Also, under Florida law,
whenever you deal with a mort-
gage lender or a mortgage broker-
age business, they are required to.
provide you with a written agree-
ment setting forth the estimated
cost of the services 'to be provid-
ed. One such document is called
a "good faith estimate". A mort-
gage brokerage agreement is re-
quired when you are dealing with
a mortgage broker.
Since the mortgage brokerage
agreement is a legally binding
contract, you should read it care-
fully and understand all of it be-
fore, signing. Make sure you un-
derstand each. fee listed. You
should also read and understand
all charges listed on the good
faith estimate. You have the right
to question any fees you do not
understand or feel are excessive.
Finally, if you feel you have a
legitimate concern against' a
mortgage brokerage business or
mortgage lender, or if you have
questions, you may call the
Comptroller's toll-free hotline at
1-800-848-3792.

A.

T

If you haven't had any
dental work recently that re--
quires the use of local anes-
thesia to keep you comforta-
ble, you may recall the.
experience as one that
'brought numbness to a large
area of your mouth. However,
with new dental techniques a
much smaller area of your
mouth will be affected.
Formerly, when major
tooth repair was needed to re-
store a tooth to health, the an-
esthetic was injected into the
main nerve center at the rear
of the jaw. This tended to
numb the lower portion of the
mouth, sometimes extending
to the lips and tongue, until

the anesthetic wore off.
The development of ex-
tremely fine injection needles,
however, now makes it possi-
ble for your dentist to reach
the individual nerve in a tooth
and use smaller amounts of
anesthetic.
This technique is known
as intraligmental anesthesia.
It is a welcome improvement
in patient comfort during tooth
restoration procedures.

I guess I've got "oldtimer's"
disease:
My hands are arthritic, I have
swollen knees, .
I take frequent naps, I'm of-
ten forgetful.
Tough to get along with, ex-
cessively fretful.
My eyesight's weaker, my
hearing's diminished,
I'm kind of unsteady, athletic
life's finished;
My second set of teeth threat-
ens to give out,
Broken toes mend slowly -
then there is gout!
Though my mind's working
slow, and I'm no "wisenhamer;"
I'm not a candidate yet for
that dreaded Alzheimer;
And you'll have to admit that
this grizzled "oldtimer"
Is still pretty fair as an ama-

This column is provided as a service of the Gulf County Guidance Clinic, Inc., a professional counsel-
ing and mental health center. It is not intended to replace psychological counseling or treatment ser-
vices.


Dear Counselor,
My husband and ,I are experi-
encing a problem with our five
,year old daughter. For the past
two weeks, she seems to be preoc-
cupied with being in constant
contact with us. She strongly
objects to being dropped at day
care. Bedtime is a chaotic experi-
ence, with insistence on sleeping
with us, and she seems,to be
obsessed with clinging to us.
'Our home was flooded by last
year's tropical storni and immedi-.
ately afterward she began to dis-
play this behavior. However it
subsided in about two weeks. Her
overly possessive attitude resur-
faced almost the same day as the
anniversary of the flood. Please
tell us how we can restore her
self-confidence.
Sincerely,
Bewildered Parent
Dear Bewildered,
It sounds as though your-
daughter is experiencing a very
common reaction to a catastroph-
'ic event. Children in her age
group are very concerned with,
having the security afforded by
their parents. A traumatic event.
such as the flood, affects beliefs
concerning possible parent-child
separation, thus threatening their
security. An anniversary reaction
is also a very common reaction.
Listed below are some of the


things you might try to help her
overcome her separation -anxi-
eties:
. 1) Execute extra efforts to assure
your child that you will always be
available if she should need you.
2) Talk openly about the disaster
and stress the family's tri-
umphant survival. ',
3) Be more permissive to the
child's clinging behavior, remem-
bering this behavior is directed,,
not towards ,attention-seeking,
b.ut is an effort to secure a. guar-
antee of security. A gradual wean-
ing from this level of permissive-
ness is possible once the undesir-
able behaviors have subsided.
4) If these efforts are not success-
ful, you might consider contacting'
a local mental health facility.
: Tese facilities are staffed by pro-
fejsionals who are trained in
counseling survivors of disasters.

Senator Pat Thomas, D-
Quincy, was pleased to announce'
recently that the Department of
Corrections has chosen the fol-
lowing new'prison sites in North
Florida: one 1,200 bed prison in
Franklin County; a 260 bed work
camp in Graceville; a 260 bed

Crawford Criticizes


WaterMaiiagement


Budget Increase


Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Bob Crawford recently crit-
icized the South Florida Water
Management District for propos--
ing a nearly 19 percent Increase
'in its operating budget for the
coming year.
In an era ofbelt-tightening by
the federal, state and most local
governments. Crawford claimed
that the proposed $348.1 million
budget underscores the need for
reform among Florida's water
management districts.
"It's incomprehensible to me
how anyone can Justify this
amount- of increase,"! Crawford
said. ,"Most state agencies-
including ours-will be getting by
with less. resources in the future
than we're, receiving now." ,
Under the proposed budget
unveiled by the South Florida
Water Management, District last
week, property taxes imposed by
the district would increase by,
roughly 25 percent. Although it
will be subject to a July public
hearing, a final decision on the
budget' will be made by district
members arid not any elected
body.
"This is but another example
of why I believe these districts
need greater accountability"
Crawford said.
Last April, Crawford proposed
sweeping changes in state water

Florida Has Its


Own Brand of


Affirmative Action

,Officials Still Fear Possibilities
of California Action Spreading
COLOR BLIND FLORIDA EASIER
It will b.e a lot easier for Florida's university system to make Its affir-
mative action programs colorblind along lines suggested by U.S. Supreme
Court decisions this summer than it will be for California which last week
dropped race as a hiring criterion in its nine-college public system.
California, as usual, went further than most states in attracting
minority students and hiring minority faculty. It had quotas and caps and
was, frankly, more intrusive and discriminating against whites in open-
ing the doors of its higher education system than Florida.
Another key difference is that Florida and other southern states
retained their historical black colleges such as Florida A&M University at
Tallahassee.
These colleges greatly expanded minority access to a higher educa-
tion and Florida went even further, funding this year, for instance, two
predominantly black private colleges--Bethune Cookman at Daytona
Beach and David Waters at Jacksonville-to the tune of $2 million.
After the California Board of Regents vote last week, Florida univer-
sity leaders rushed to promise they would continue to aggressively recruit
black students and professors. It will be interesting to see what their
reaction will be when their rather lukewarm affirmative action programs
are challenged in court.
Florida State Chancellor Charles Reed said he saw the California
action as a "political platform" for Gov. Pete Wilson' in his campaign for
the GOP presidential nomination. FAMU President 'Frederick Humphries
said it was a "terrible mistake" and he didn't think Florida would follow
California's lead.
"Fortunately, we have a diverse, bipartisan Legislature," said Florida
State University President Sandy D'Alemberte, a liberal firebrand former
House member and Florida Bar Association president.
Florida IS different than California. It has a'large group of Hispanic
Republican lawmakers, some favoring affirmative action, and also many
rural Democrats who traditionally oppose it. California is more split along
party lines on the issue.
But higher education officials-already frightened by, California's
property tax rollback laws that spread to other states like wildfire-'
sounded like they were whistling by a' graveyard late last week.
Of course, the move to take race out of affirmative action is going to '
come to Florida. So what? It doesn't mean preferences can't be given to
veterans, the elderly, the social-economic or physically disadvantaged
and many other legitimate reasons.
referential treatment just can't be based solely. on race anymore.
WATCH OUT FOR THOSE POLLS
Look for some special advocacy poll to come out right soon now say-
ing a majority of the American people favor affirmative action based on
race. You can count on it but you'd better consider the source of the poll
and how it is conducted and interpreted.
A widely reported poll broadcast by ABC that more than 80 percentt
of the angry white men sampled opposed hiring preferences, for women
and minorities. What ABC didn't report was that the same poll showed
77-79 percent of white women opposed preferential hiring by gender and
race also. It is known as selective reporting.
Add the' number of minorities including blacks themselves who want
to succeed on their own merit, not on government handout, and you
have overwhelming opposition to affirmative action on purely racial
grounds, ..
You're not going to get information like that. however, in your average
big city liberal yahoo daily newspaper.
What you will see are many ,skewed untrustworthy polls taken by
advocates (including government agencies) looking for tax financing by
everybody else for their special interest programs.
PEOPLE ARE ENDANGERED SPECIES TOO
City folk in California are expected to vote the mountain lion off that
state's endangered species list because of a rash of fatal attacks by the
big cats on (would you believe) city folk.
Yep, the protected mountain lions-panthers to Floridians-one of
nature's fiercest predators, have been picking off joggers, children, pets
or any other good-tasting quarry right in town limits. So the latest polls
say the California legislature is going to let hunters go after the maraud-
ing lions again.
The phenomenon is called perspective. City, folk in. California, of
course, knew very little about panthers when. swayed by bleeding heart.
environmentalists, they voted a ban on hunting panthers. Few of them
knew or cared about the ranchers who opposed the "ban either. But
presto, all that seems to have changed, now that newspapers are fill of
stories of mountain lion attacks on not just people, but city folk people.
The situation is somewhat like Florida's ban on commercial fishing,
sponsored by environmentalists and sports fishermen. City folk really
didn't know or care much about the ancient fishing industry. Now they
are discovering that a whole class of people are being put out of work and
worst-maybe on the public dole-and the cost of seafood they eat them-
selves is going up.
It's interesting to note that another Florida nature brouhaha' Isn't
unfolding very well either. Neither environmentalists nor the Florida for-
est industry is satisfied with federal efforts to protect the red-cockaded
woodpeckers found predominantly in the Apalachicola National Forest in
North Florida.
Timbermen claim the plan which bans the cutting of trees near wood-
pecker nests is pushing housing costs up for Americans and putting lum-
bermen and loggers out of work. Environmentalists claim it isn't enough.
They contend too much commercial foresting is still allowed and want a
return to the old untouched early growth forest ecosystem when wood-
peckers were numerous and people were scarce.
This issue is going to get even more complicated, because of one of
the U. S. Supreme Court's usual befuddling rulings that the Endangered
"S' species Act covers not only the national forests and parks, but also pri-
vately owned land. More government intrusion into the lives of citizens, of
course.

ROUND-UP

by Jack Harper


In the 5-2 decision, the court said Pompano Beach house painter
Gary Bjorklund, who was convicted of a rape in 1977, could not take 3-
year-old Baby Emily from her Fort Lauderdale adopted parents, Steve
and Angel Welsh. Bjorklund had sued for them. claiming the mother
(Linda Benco of Boca Raton) put the baby up for adoption at its birth
without his consent.
The Florida decision came in the face of cases in Illinois and Iowa in
which state supreme,courts ruled in favor of biological fathers seeking to
obtain custody of their adopted children.
The U. S. Supreme Court refused to review either of those cases, but
'BJorklund's attorney Steven Pesso said the Florida ruling will be appealed
anyway. .
National children advocates praised the Florida decision and said it
would impact custody cases in other states.
"It's a real victory," said Annie Rose, executive director of a Michigan
organization named "Hear My Voice."
Paul, Upton, attorney for Steve and Angel Welsh, said it was "a won-
derful decision for adoptive parents around the country."
GRUESOME SEX BILL: State Senr, Pat Thomas, D-Quincy, has co-
authored a bill for the 1996 Legislative session to make committing sex
on a dead person a crime. It comes after a 17- and 22-year-old were
charged in Leon County with killing,; the mother of the teenager and
throwing her body down a well.
An autopsy revealed the mother was raped after she was beaten to
death. The 22-year-old confessed to it, but authorities found there was no
law in Florida statutes covering a rape. of a dead body.
"It is an unconscionable crime. I'm happy to sponsor the legislation
and I think it will pass overwhelmingly," Thomas said.
CHAIN GANG SLAVERY: That's the opinion of a Polk Correctional
Institution prisoner who has filed an emergency petition with the Florida
Supreme Court in an attempt to block the return of chain gangs which
were authorized by the 1995 Florida Legislature.
He is McArthur Helms-El. an inmate serving a life term for sex crimes
who says in his petition that chain gangs are unconstitutional for current
prisoners because it would exceed the punishment decided on by judges
at their tria.s.
Ntd SUNDAY BEEICRSALES: The Madison County Commission passed
an ordinance banning the sale of beer on Sunday in the county without
,a dissenting vote. The ordinance was passed at the request of Sheriff Joe
Peavy who said it was needed in order to enforce an earlier prohibition of
Sunday beer sales passed by the commission.

First Pentecostal


Welcomes Pastor


The First Pentecostal Holi-
ness Church of Port St. Joe wel-
comes Reverend Gus Carpenter
as its new pastor. He will reside
in the church parsonage along
with his wife, Mary, and daugh-
ters, Jessica, Collette and Milli-
cent. The Carpenter's also have a
married daughter, .Angela Lamm,
who lives in Nederland, Texas.
Reverend Carpenter began
his ministry in 1986 at Milligan
serving as associate to Reverend
Dorland Barnhill. Since that time,
he has served as pastor to two
other congregations. While at his
last pastorate, a Christian school
was founded and is still in opera-
tion. After leaving this pastorate
in 1992, they' travelled as evan-
gelists ministering in Florida, Ala-
bama, Ohio, Missouri, Arkansas,
and Texas. They also travelled to
Mexico and Sicilia working with
"Christ is the Answer" missions
teams.
Since the spring of 1994,
they have been members of the
Apalachicola Pentecostal Holiness
"Church where he served as asso-


late to Reverend -Ronald Jack-
son.
Reverend Carpenter is look-
ing forward to having a communi-
ty-minded ministry at the Port St.
Joe First Pentecostal Holiness
Church. He, believes that the
"Truth will set men free." His
message is simply that the un-
compromised Word of God,
preached with love to all men and
women, has the power to change
lives.
, The congregation of the First
Pentecostal Holiness Church is
happy to have the Carpenters in
Port St. Joe. A covered dish
luncheon will be served in the fel-
lowship hall immediately follow-
ing the morning worship service
on July 30 to welcome the Car-
penter family. Everyone is invited
to attend.


lanta. More changes were still to
come, however, and John
changed to the conservative As-
bury Seminary in Wilmore, Ken-
tucky. After four years there, he
was ordained as a minister of the
gospel. He also received a schol-
arship to Asbury and it's benefac-
tor was a man of the exact same
name, as his step-falther, the be-
loved R. B. Middleton!
John's hobbies are fishing
and .fast cars. My son came home
and asked me if I had seen the
preacher's new license tag. "It
said," explained Beau, "REV-
JFK". Since John also likes rac-
ing cars, I don't know if it means

The Rev. Joseph Eckstine, Pastor


by Linda Whitfield
Rev. John F. Kramer, his
wife, Nancy, children, Stephanie
and Matthew have 'just moved to
Wewahitchka to begin a ministry
in the United Methodist Church.
The Kramers come to Wewahitch-
ka from Marianna, having served
a church there and one at Com-
pass Lake.
Reverend Kramer is the son,
of Jack.and Ada Kramer. Sadly,
his father died before John was
born and he was reared by his
mother. After his mother's death,
just out of high school, John was
offered a home by R. B. and Jo
Middleton, his newly adoptive
parents. Both R. B. and Jo are
ministers of music in the Baptist

was meant to be In. While taking
Shis brother to college his first
day, Reverend Kramer kept talk-
ing about "what I am going to do,"
Setc. Finally, his younger brother
said, "It sounds like you're living'
for yourself instead of the Lord."
John then prayed for guidance
and the rest you might say is his-
tory.
John married his sweetheart,
Nancy, in 1981 In New Port Ri-
chey with Reverend -Dick Blan-
chard officiating. You might know
that he is, the, composer of the
beautiful hymn, -Fill My Cup,
Lord". Their marriage has been.
blessed by two beautiful children.
While working at New Port Rl-

yet the Lord kept tugging at his.
heart. "What do you want me to
do, Lord? "Stay or go?" If 1 ti'm to
go, how will I pay for seminaryy"
John thought. The way was made,

camps, street outreaches and
churches in the southern, north-

have been changed as a result of

everyone to come and experience
the ministry., A nursery will be

In ten years, John sees him-

fallen in love with our area and
have a real love for the people
here. He says they are friendly
and warm. He's already received
many blessings since his arrival.

THE STARPORT ST. JOE 1995


Medical Dispatchers Trained


while they wait for help to arrive.
Gulf County's 911 Coordina-
tor, Marshall Nelson told The Star


that certified emergency dispatch-
ers coupled \ith Gulf Countys
911 emergency response phone


system will dramatically enhance
emergency medical service to the
county.


On Monday and Tuesday of
this week emergency ihedical dis-
patchers and correctional officers
of the Gulf County Sheriffs Office
and Port St.' Joe Police Depart-
ment along with .EMS Director
Shane McGuffin and a few partic-
ipants from .area agencies re-
ceived specialized EMD/Crisis
Communications Training.
Jody White of Power Phone,
Inc. is conducting the :training
seminar which will provide valua-
ble training to dispatchers., who
are in actuality, the first on the
scene to save lives and provide
improved public safety service to
our citizens and responders when
Emergency 911 calls are received.
White told dispatchers that
the four to six minutes between
the time a call is received via 911
and EMT's and paramedics arrive
on the scene is "their time".
"What you do during this
time frame can be the difference
between life and death for victims
during an emergency," he said.
Dispatchers were .trained in
proven techniques in breaking
hysteria thresholds, handling
multiple calls, life-saving pre-


arrival medical instruction, re-
sponder safety enhancement, lia-
bility and legal issues, plus other
* methods to allow responders to
arrive at the scene better pre-
pared.
Power Phone, Inc. will provide
each attendee with the Dispatch-
er's Medical Desk Reference Man-


ual, a quick-tab flip chart manual
designed to provide specific
guidelines in ascertaining the na-
ture and .priority of a medical
emergency.
Using the manual Emergency
Medical Dispatchers can assist
callers with pre-arrival instruc-
tion and first aid techniques,

Some rip-off artists scan clas-

and look for other notices of lost
pets. They then call the pet own-
ers and claim they have found
their animal in an out-of-town lo-

sent about $150 to cover costs.
If you are asked for money to
recover a missing pet, arrange to
travel the location of the caller to
recover the animal. If that isn't
possible, ask the caller to deliver
the pet to the Sheriffs Depart-

you can recover the animal. If you
have doubts about the truthful-
