EDA Gives Mill Resuming


Verbal OK


For Marina


.Money-

For Port St. Joe
Bill Kennedy. Preble-Rish,
Inc. told The Star Tuesday
evening that he had received a
verbal commitment from EDA
(Economic Development Admini-
stration) stating $675,000 in
grant money has been approved
by them to construct a city marl-
na for Port St. Joe.
Chamber of Commerce Direc-
tor Tamara Laine said, "I'm excit-
ed about the news, but I'm not;
going to start celebrating until
final congressional approval
comes through, hopefully some-
times later this week."
The Marina Committee,
Chamber of Commerce, and city
commissioners have been seeking
funds to help build a marina for
Port St Joe for quite some time.
They originally were looking at a
site between the city pier and
Frank Pate Jr. Park at the end of
Fifth Street. But fears that envi-
ronmental concerns would create
a permitting nightmare caused
EDA to deny the city's first appli-
cation for $900.00 In grant funds.
This led the group to search for
an alternate site that would be
-easier to permit.
The search prompted Gene
Raffleld to propose an alternate
plan, utilizing 3.5 acres of proper- -
ty and buildings adjacent to
Raffield Fisheries on the
Intracoastal Waterway as a site
for the marina.
His proposal included a
280'x85" metal building that
could easily be converted to a dry
storage building housing as many
as 50 boats. Two other smaller
buildings are also located on the
property and could be utilized in
the marina concept as a ship's
store, or some other similar appli-
cation. A mechanical boat lift,
capable of dry docking larger
boats, is also Included on the

back of the buildings in the business district."
She added that something needs to be done to
slow these 'people down as they pass through
Port St. Joe. and give them something more
pleasing to look at.
The business district drew most of the
attention of the group. noting a need for an
overall paint-up, clean-up and fix-up to make
the city more appealing to shoppers and visi-
tors to the area.
Design Studio West plans to accumulate all
the suggestions and ideas they receive from a
cross section of the community. Moore empha-
sized the importance of a good response from
the public in the community workshops to be

Second FatalityDIn'CouInt


Fo
Full rodution o


St. Joe Forest Product's
paper mill here in Port St.
Joe will resume full opera-
tions Monday, October 2,
after being on a partial op-
eration status for more
than five weeks.
The mill shut down one
of its paper machines on
August 26 and furloughed
194 operational and main-
tenance personnel at the
time.
Two weeks ago the mill
re-started its idle "Number
Two" machine and shut
down its "Number One" ma-
chine. The mills' produc-
tion of 1,400 tons per day
has been cut in half for
much of the time of re-
duced production.
Mill executives said the
mill will resume full pro-
duction Monday and there
are no plans for a future
slow-down in operations
unless marketing condi-
tions worsen.

First Traffic Fatality

Killed Friday Morning When Truck Overturns
Gulf County experienced its second traffic death of the year
early Friday morning of last week, with the vehicular death of
Joe L. Gortman of Wewahitchka.
Gortman. 36, was killed when the 1977 Ford pick-up in
which he was riding, went out of control and left the south
shoulder of Lake Grove Road in the Wewahitchka city limits and
rolled over twice. The accident happened near the Red Bull Is-
land Intersection at about 5:00 a.m.
Wewahitchka Police Chief Cecil Donaldson said the accident
was reported at 5:05 a.m., from the Jr. Store in Wewahitchka.
Edward E. Nobles of Wewahltchka. also an occupant of the
truck, walked to the store, with a broken leg, and reported the
crash. .
Nobles Is still a patient in a Bay County hospital, suffering
from his severe injuries. Chief Donaldson said it was still uncer-
tain which young man was driving the vehicle, but the accident
is still under Investigation.
It was the first traffic fatality of the year for Wewahitchka, ,a
well as the second in the county.
Florida Highway Patrol Sergeant Gary L. Howze investigated
the fatal accident.


S. .


Members of the Gulf County
Board of Commissioners and their
bonding agent, Raymond James
and Associates, Inc.. travelled to
Tallahassee Wednesday morning
to put their final stamp of
approval on a $6.775 million road
bond Issue for Gulf County.
The bond Issue will generate
$3.360 million in new paving
funds, and will be used to resur-
face and pave roads throughout
the county, Wewahitchka and
Port St Joe.
Better than half of the $6.775
million will be used to "m-bond"'
the current $3.6 million bond
Issued funded by a six-cent local
option gas tax, at a lower interest
rate. The remainder of the money
will be financed through Gulfs
Secondary Road and Bridge gas
tax revenues and a commitment
from the cities of Port St Joe and
Wewahltchka to turn annually
$85,000 of Secondary Road and
Bridge money back over to the
county, in exchange for the coun-
ty obligating themselves to main-
tain roads within the two cities.
Bill Kennedy, Preble-Rish,
Inc.. told the Board that engineer-
ing work on the county's road
resurfacing and paving list was
nearing completion and should be
ready to bid out shortly after the
first of October.
HAZARD MITIGATION
_- -.GIL.County- -Administrator-
Larry Wells introduced Tony Mills.
Disaster Resource Management
Company, to the Board to answer
questions concerning the dis-
persement and regulation of
$1,072,702 of hazard mitigation
funds applied for by the county
through the Department of
Community Affairs.
The fund would be used to aid
In relocating victims of the recent
floods brought on by the torren-
Ual rains experienced during
Tropical Storm Alberto. ,
Mills told the board the key,,
was to establish a rbuy-back, plan
that would treat all treat all the victims as
equitably as possible, taking into
account such things as primary
residence, special needs (handi-
capped, elderly, etc.) and flood
'proneness.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
told Mills the criteria he spelled
out was very similar to the guide-.:
lines the Hazard Mitigation
Committee has set up.
Board Chairman Michael
Hamniond asked Mills about the
intent of the board to pass on
administrative expenses, not cov-
ered by the grant money, to prop-
erty owners seeking relocation
under the program. Mills said he
wasn't sure of the legal ramifica-
tions of passing the administra-
tive expenses in that manner.
Wells, In turn, asked and
received permission from the
board to write DCA's legal counsel

CULVERT POLICY
Commissioner Nathan Peters.
Jr. pointed out to the board at
their last meeting that he thought
several culverts In the county
were put down wrong or weren't
large enough to adequately do the
job. After discussion, the board
asked Chief Administrator Don
Butler and Road Superintendent
Bob Lester to come up with a con-
sistent board policy to be dis-
cussed at the next meeting.
Butler and Lester presented
the board with a proposed policy
Tuesday evening that simply
states. "Any and all culverts
placed on county rights-of-way
must first be approved for diame-
ter and elevation by the Gulf
County Road Department."
The Board unanimously
approved the recommended policy
clarification. Previous board poli-
cy had called for a minimum of
18" culvert pipe to be used when
residents put in culverts.

M.B. Decides

On Method

To Pay

For Sewer

If They LTake It
The Mexico Beach City Coun-
cil said, In effect. "Count us in on
your sewer project plans, but
we'll not give you a final approval
until we have all facts and figures
in front of us."
The decision for conditional
approval of the project came after
a second work shop and public
input session Monday night on
the $4.698 million projecL
Mexico Beach settled'on how
they preferred to pay for the pro-
Ject. Monday. If it is approved.
The repayment method had to be
presented to the financial people
in advance. to have the repay-
ment, plans studied to examine
the City's ability to meet Its
debts. The Commission agreed on
a plan which charges residents
for usage, setting a 4,000 gallon
minimum rate, or $36.92 per
month.
Mexico Beach City Manager
John Mclnnis said a study of the
town's water customers shows
the average customer uses 4-
5,000 gallons of water per month.
OTHER REQUIREMENTS
The only additional expense
to residents for installation of
sewer services to their home will
be effective, Department of Health
approved closure of their present
septic tanks, at a cost of approxi-
mately $150-$200, and a piping
cost of approximately $5.00 per
running foot to attach their home
to the proposed system.
At a' work shop hearing :a
week ago, engineer Jack Arthur
of Baskerville-Donovan alerted
the Commission of the fact that
when a septic begins malfunc-
tioning, at the present time, the
Department of Health requires
that the tank be removed and an
approved septic system installed.
'You won't be able to Just repair
It," he said.

Estimate


Li


Hunker Down with Kes


by Kesley Colbert


Made By Knowledgeable People
JUST AS WE SUSPECTED, the proposed sewer system for
Mexico Beach will not cost nearly as much as its detractors
feared it would and will not come quite so cheap as its most avid
supporters had hoped.
The figures are in. Granted, the figures are merely estimates
put on a piece of paper itemizing how much each little piece will
cost and how much it will take to have it installed. But a quo-
tation of actual pieces of the system and the price of installing
them is a sight more accurate than street comer talk.
WE DON'T THINK anyone has attempted to make the resi-
dents of Mexico Beach think the community was going to get
such a vital service for free! Those who did think the system
could be furnished at no cost or trouble to the city had just as
well dwell on some other fantasy, because that one is just not
going to happen.
Were a proponent of sewer service for selfish reasons, among
others. You see, we live just down the road from Mexico Beach, a
scant 10 or 12 miles. If hepatitis or scarlet fever, or some such
other sanitary-related disease breaks out in Mexico Beach, there
isn't much standing between them and us! Remember the ty-
phoid scare a few years back at White City? That was serious
enough to cause the state board of health to take definite steps
to remove the threat.
WHEN ENGINEER JACK Arthur told the City .Commission
last Monday night, 'The main reason Mexico Beach needs sewer
is for good health!" shouldn't be taken lightly or glibly. His state-
ment should be given top priority when the people of Mexico
Beach decide on whether or not to join the other communities in
Bay County in their joint sewer treatment operation. It is the
only and most economical way to go.
Should the people of Mexico Beach allow this golden oppor-
tunity to pass and be forced to go it on their own in the future-
and they will be forced to put in sewer in the future, whether
they want to or not-it will cost considerably more in dollars and
effort than the unified effort cost today.
We remember it cost the City of Port St. Joe $9 million nearly
25 years ago to put in just a treatment plant. Mexico Beach
wouldn't come out much less, putting in their own system and
treatment plant and the frustration over permits and re-,
quirements of operation would be astronomical for a small city
such as Mexico Beach.


Good Luck, Retirees
SO, WE HAVE SOME mainline politicians retiring at the end
of the current political term. Superintendent of Public Instruc-
tion Walter Wilder and Congressman Pete Peterson are both
stepping down for both similar and diverse reasons.
The "similar" reasons are frustrations over dealing with the
present-day trends and mind-set of people and political bodies.
We can see where one would get frustrated with tilting at wind-
mills, if that is what Congressman Peterson thinks is happening
to him. We can also empathize with Wider's feeling that things
aren't, all rosy in the school-pupil-parent relationships: these
days.iither. Things have.changed and, Wilder wonders if maybe
he has arrived' at the, stage in his life where he feels he doesn't
need all the hassle.
WILDER HAS SERVED the people of Gulf County well. He
was one of us. He grew up here, went to school here, played ath-
letics here and was very good at it. As a result, several local resi-
dents went to bat for Walter, when it came time for him to go to
college and used their influence to see that he had an opportuni-
ty to advance. .
You've more than paid us all back, Walter. Your stint here in
Gulf County as a coach, teacher, principal and superintendent,
has been yeoman service. We're the better for your being here
and we thank you.
AS FOR PETERSON, he came from an another area and ran
for his office when even the Democratic symbol could have won
the office against what was considered by many as a turn-coat
Republican. Peterson was perhaps one of the most honest of
Congressmen on the hill. He was just from another geographic
portion of the country with a different outlook on life and didn't
ever really fit in with his constituents after he was elected.
It's a pity. In a different time, serving a different people, he
could probably been a great Congressman for the nation.
We wish both Wilder and Peterson well. Both have earned it
by long and diligent service to the nation.
Now, get ready for the gaggle of candidates to come out of the
woods, to seek election to both vacancies!


I Missed The Ancient Dance Of The Nile


"Carroll County's pointed out

Fair ...

ter each May, Elvis once stopped


In for chill at the Dixie Coffee
Cup. and our 4th of July parade
was always something special-
but he pretty much hit the nail
on the head. The Carroll County
Fair was big enough to get us
plenty excited!
With two dollars burning a
hole in the front right pocket of
each of our Tuff Nut jeans, Moth-
er couldn't hold us. "You boys be
careful, have fun. Leon, you keep
up with Kesley and David. Boys .
. BOYS do be careful .
AND STAY AWAY FROM THAT
BIG PURPLE TENT.. ."
We were half-way down the
midway and I could still hear her,


" and don't talk to strangers
and don't throw your money away
on those sinful games of chance
which you can not win and stay
together and do be care- We
didn't turn around. We could see
everybody staring back toward

.Mothers don't never quit!
I bought some cotton candy,.

finish off his caramel popcorn,
wolfed down a corn dog with ex-
tra mustard, enjoyed a grape sno-
.cone with some boiled peanuts,
rode the scrambler, tilt-a whirl,
octopus and ferris wheel .....


and threw up all over one side of
the purple tenL
I think It was the tilt-a-whirl
that got me.
My head wouldn't stop spin-
ning-I could hear the voice out
front imploring the masses to,
"step right up and see the great-
est show on earth-see the Lapa-
relli sisters do the ancient dance
of the Nile, see Katrina walk the
exotic Congo trail, follow the mag- :
nificent and fearless Madame:
Rose as she takes the world re-
nown last lover's leap-thirty-five
cents gets you in for the entire
show, hur-ry,t hur-ry! hur-ry!"
But, I couldn't tell if the skinny
man wearing the pink feathers
and short dress or the big, beard-
ed girl in the red and white
striped shirt and straw hat was
doing the talking.
I couldn't get "things" to stop
going' 'round and 'round. David
and: Biddy Wiggleton-we hadn't
seen Leon since we got out of
Mother's sight-drug me into the
freak tent "Would you look at'
that! They weren't lying," Buddy
spun me around and pointed "it's
a two-headed calfl"
"You guys only see two
heads?"
The rooster with three legs
looked like a centipede to me. The
fat lady had twenty chins. I didn't
care about the giant python or
the twelve year old boy from the
Himalayas who stood only three'
feet tall-I had to sit down.
We found a bench over by the
pony rides. "Fellas, are we having
fun yet?"
Skip Trevathan and Jerome
Crawford drifted by, "Hey, guys,
let's go down to the exhibit barn
and catch the hog show."
City boys! I guarantee you,
we didn't come to the fair to see
who had grown off the largest
shoati We could stay home and
look at pigs all day long.
We caught up with Leon and
Nicky Joe Stafford over at the-
softball toss. The man with the
money apron would throw one
ball and knock all three milk jug
bottles off the table every time.
"Who's next?" He'd yell out as he
set 'em back up. It looked so
easy! I laid my quarter down. He
handed me three-balls. I hit the
same spot he did--the top bottle
flew off, the bottom two tilted
over. "You've got toiget the bottles
completely off the table!" he.
barked, I grazed one bottle, it
moved slightly and completely
.missed with my last throw. "
I didn't understand, I ,can .
throw with anybody! I reached for
another quarter. Leon caught my
arm. "K.C., the bottom bottles are
weighted and have a flat edge on
one side. When he throws, the
rounded side is at the back, the
bottles fall and roll off the table.
When you throw, the flat edge is
to the back, there is no roll and
it's good-bye 25 cents."
"You mean it's not on the up
and up?"
"Hey, you've been eating your
smart pills again!"
I knew better than to pick up
the yellow rubber ducks. I figured
that out last year. They had great

Temptation..


.You Are A Pan Of Fresh-Baked Cinnamon Rolls


I HAVE FOUND out who or
what the devil is and believe me, I
was surprised. I thought he was a
man in a pair of red leotards,
pointed ears, goatee and a .pitch
fork.
You know the devil's forte is
temptation. He's good at it! He'll
use that pawn to trick anybody
into doing things they ought not
do, or go places they ought not go
to, or say things they ought not
say.
I know you remember the co-
median Flip Wilson, who was on
TV several years ago. He got a lot
of mileage out of his character
"Geraldine" and a line which went
something like this: "The devil
made me do it" accompanied by a
mischievous belly laugh.
All of which meant that the
devil is himself devious with his
activities toward mankind and in
his methods used to dupe we
poor human beings into doing
what he wants us to do.
The devil is wily, to say the


least... yes he is!


WELL, I FOUND a Man of
God doing a part of the devil's
work the other day. He tempted
me! Isn't that what a devil is sup-
posed to do? Should one expect a
man of God to be involved in
such activities?
I love sweet goodies to eat!
It's a good thing I don't have dia-
betes, because I have a large
sweet tooth. That sweet tooth gets
me in trouble, even though I don't
have diabetes. It causes me to eat
too many of the wrong foods
[sweets].


It's hard for me to turn down
a. delicious sweet tidbit, a light
fluffy cake, a juicy, delicious pie
with a tender, flaky crust, or any
of the "specialties'" the ladies fix
for church covered-dish dinners.
It seems as if each and every one
of them is vying for a prize with
their dessert goodies at such
events.

NEEDLESS TO SAY, I am
susceptible to such temptations .
. too susceptible!
I have been the better part of
a calendar year losing 30 pounds.
I gloat every time someone says,


'You are looking good" because I
have lost weight. But, it was a
chore. I have not been able to in-
dulge in my weakness-delicious
desserts--for nearly a year, to get
my weight down to the point it is
now.
Then, comes what I sincerely
believe is the devils The devil of
temptation! He knew just what it
would take to tempt me. I fended
off one temptation a day or two
prior, when Cawthoi Williams
was trying to give awky jars of
some muscadine jelly he had
made. He offered but I was firm,
unyielding, strong and unbend-
ing. I took no free muscadine jel-
ly, even though it: was "in its
time".

THAT ENCOUNTER must
have left me in a vulnerable con-
dition. It apparently took too
much out of me to refuse that
muscadine jelly. I had "sampled"
some of Cawthon Williams' home-
made muscadine jelly on a previ-


ous occasion, so I knew just what
I was missing. I wasn't a 'pretty
sight after that encounter!
Then, just a couple of days
later, I came to work one morning
and someone had left me a full
pan of plump, sour-dough cinna-
mon rolls, loaded up with cinna-
mon and raisins, topped with de-
licious gooey white sauce and still
warm where the pan had just
been taken from the oven.
Those warm sour-dough cin-
namon rolls were about three
inches plump! They filled the air
with their distinctive aroma all
over the building. They couldn't
be ignored.
Who had brought them?
Who other, but the plump,
Jolly minister of music, Mark
Jones, from down at our church.
Mark is a great music man for
our church, but I firmly believe
he is a frustrated baker from Mis-
sissippi.
Every time we have one of


those afore-mentioned church
covered-dish dinners, he turns
up with a heaping tray of fresh
baked fluffy white rolls, browned
delicately on top, which he had
just a few moments before taken
out of the oven in the church
kitchen.
He's trying to addict us all, I
tell you!
Now, he has turned his full
attention on me with this morn-
ing parcel of delicate goodies he
has conjured up. With such a
tempting offering as this one of
several days ago, I couldn't help
but suspect his origins as being
of a devilish nature. Didn't he
know those cinnamon rolls would
make me fat again or go a
long way toward doing it?
I wish now, I had taken Caw-
thon's muscadine jelly; I bet it
would have been g-o-o-o-d spread
on one of those cinnamon rolls!
And, maybe a heaping por-
tion of genuine cow's butter

Letter to the Editor:
Needs Help With Roof
Dear Citizens of Gulf County:
The Port St. Joe Garden Club
needs your help
Our club presently has about
16 members. We own and occupy
the old Catholic Church building
on 8th Street. We are attempting
to put this building on the Histor-
ic Register, as it was built in
1925.
We still have our Garden
Club meetings, programs, etc. in
this building. These programs are
open to the public.
We are in need of your help
The Garden Club building needs
a new roof. This roof must be re-
stored to the original type in
which it was built. The building
already has three roofs on it and
these must be removed.
If you care to help us with
this project, it would certainly be
appreciated. Please feel free to
visit our building anytime or at-
tend any of our meetings.
Sincerely,
Betty Lewis (Mrs. John E.)

Wewa Shuts Out Sneads In District Win


Wewahitchka's offense scored
two touchdowns in the first half
'while the defense shut out district
rival Sneads, 14-0, in Friday's
SGator football action.
The win gives the Gators (3-1)
an early 2-0 advantage in district
-standings and boosts their hopes
to secure one of the two District
Two 2A playoff spots in post sea-
son play.
Matt Kearce connected with
Andrew Williams for a 22 yard
scoring pass with 5:36 remaining
in the first quarter to give the
Gators a 6-0 lead. David
Hysmith's kick boosted the score
to 7-0.
The 57-yard, five play scoring
drive was highlighted by David
Hysmith's 18 yard pass reception
imd Kearce's 19 yard run on the
quarterback keeper to set up the.
touchdown.
Wewahitchka scored the rest
of their 14 points late in the first


half. Tackle John Gibbs broke
through the Pirates' offensive line
to partially block a punt attempt
which gave the Gators good field
position on the Sneads 31 yard
line.
Tight end Amp Hill grabbed a
Kearce pass for 16 yards and Ike
Mincy ran for six yards to the 10
yard line. Kearce found his big
tight end, Amp Hill, in the end
zone on fourth and goal from the
10 yard line, with only 25 seconds
remaining in the half. Hysmith's
extra point kick was good.
The unsung heroes of the
game were the Gators' defensive
unit. They allowed only eight total
yards of offense to the Pirates in
the entire first half and didn't
yield a first down, except by a
penalty in the third quarter, till
midway through the fourth quar-
ter.
Sneads gained just 82 total
yards on the evening. Sixty three


of those came in the last half of
the fourth quarter when the
Pirates mounted their only seri-
ous scoring threats of the game.
But big defensive plays by Amp
Hill, John Gibbs, Justin Jackson,
and Adam Ake turned back
Sneads' offensive efforts, preserv-
ing the shutout.
Amp Hill was the consensus
defensive player of the night as he


had one reception each for 18 and
28 yards. Kearce had seven com-
pletions for 117 yards passing.

BEST FOOT FORWARD


By Dr. Stephen J. Gross, Poc
Polydactyly is the term that
describes the presence of more than
the normal number of toes or
fingers. The type of condition,
which is among those that may be
inherited, occurs about once in 3,000
births.
In about half of the cases of
extra toes, the condition exists in
both feet. Some extra toes are fully
developed, others are not. The most
common condition is a duplication
of the little toe. Each case of
polydactyly is unique and the need
for treatment can vary greatly.
Parents of an affected child
usually seek ,guidance when the


child is quite 4
young. Treatment
may be as simple
as modifying
,shoes for con-
fort. When that is
not feasible, surgery may be the
answer. In addition to allowing a
child to wear regular shoes, surgery
often is chosen because of a desire
to give the feet a more normal
appearance.

of better foot care by:

SOME DOCTORS & DENTISTS
ARE USING HYPNOSIS
nce hypnosis was only an entertainment medium. But today
V it is being used medically more' and more in the treatment of'
many conditions. There are actually physicians who are just
specializing in the use of hypnosis. It have .proven effective in
such situations as stopping thumbsucking, nail-biting, and
excessive drinking. And, recently it was proved to be a valuable
aid in treating musculo-skeletal disorders such as bursitis.
Hypnosis for medical conditions should always be in the
hands of trained experts. The amateur hypnotist could
potentially cause harm, for there is still a great deal to learn
about how it actually works and its possible side effects. Do not
expose yourself to hypnosis unless your physician advises it.

When the 95th Fighter
Squadron's last F-15B, Tail No
77-0156, lifted off the Tyndall
flight line for the final, time Sep-
tember 22, it left behind a trail of
memories, both recent and dis-
tant.
There's Airman Jerry Hous-
ton, Jr., a mere three-year-old
when the Jet rolled off the assem-
bly line In 1977, who helped prep
the Jet for its final flight enroute
to Sheppard Air Force Base, Tex-
as, where it will become a perma-
nent maintenance trainer for new
crew chiefs. There's the jet's dis-
tinction as the last active B-
model F-15 in the Air Force in-
ventory. And there's the Irony of
today's date, almost 17 years to
the day the Jet arrived at Its first
duty station September 21, 1978.

however, is the distinguished
record No. 77-0156 and other B-
models leave behind after nearly
two decades of service to the Air
Force and the country. The mean-
ing wasn't lost on Houston as he
tacked up an engine bay panel on
the F-15.
"It's a distinct honor helping
retire the last B-model in the Air
Force," he said. "They have meant
a lot to the Air Force since they
came on line, and it means a lot
to me to be a part of their histo-
ry. ,
Ironically, it was on Florida's
Gulf coast that No. 77-0156 saw
its first action as an operational
Air Force jet, arriving at Eglin Air
Force Base in the fall of 1978. Its
role at that time, said Master Sgt
Samuel Walker, quality superin-
tendent of the 95th Fighter
Squadron, was one of training.
"Its primary mission was to
provide upgrade training for new
combat plToTs,"-he said. "It re-
mained In that capacity for nearly
eight years."


The jet was transferred to
Holloman Air Force Base, New
Mexico in 1986 before moving on
to Luke Air Force Base, Arizona a
year later. During those years,
Walker said, the jet provided ini-
tial instruction for. new pilots
coming into the Air Force, in adT
edition to training for Foreign Ex-
change Program pilots from Israel
and Saudi Arabia. Since 1989,
the Jet has been a staple of the
95th Boneheads' fleet, providing
upgrade training for'the world's
top fighter pilots.
Chief _Master Sgt. Doug
Sampson, chief enlisted manager
for the 95th Fighter Squadron,
said the Air Force began its con-
version to the newer C and Di
models because of Improved avi-
onics capabilities.
"As technology Improved, new
capabilities improved also," the
chief said. "We began, the conver-
sion in 1991, and it is complete
with the departure of 77-0156.
This is a significant milestone for
the wing and for the Air Force."

Wax Myrtle Is Native

Plant to Florida and

A Hardy Grower


Wax myrtle is a native Florida
plant It matures into a small tree
or shrub depending on how you
raise-it. And, it can be grown any-
where in our state. Wax myrtle
produces attractive flowers and
fruit. Its foliage has a unique fra-
grance.
Being a native plant, wax
myrtle is well-suited to Florida's
soil and climate. You often see
this plant growing wild, along
highways and in uncultivated


Gulf County
Extension Service


areas. Wax myrtle does well in a
moist environment. It would be
an excellent choice if you have a
drainage problem in your land-
scape. However, it also grows very
well in drier soils.
Wax myrtle also is cold har-
dy, salt tolerant, and relatively
free of insect and disease prob-
lems. My information on wax
myrtle was provided by Extension
Horticulture Specialist Dr. Robert
Black, with IFAS of the University
of Florida.
Wax myrtle is unisexual,
which means that male and fe-
male flowers are produced on
separate plants. Female 'flowers
grow in close bunches and pro-
duce. fruit that are round, light
green and about an eighth of an
inch in diameter. The fruit are
coated with a thick, bluish wax
that may be used in making can-
dles. Crush a few leaves of the
wax myrtle, and you'll notice that
the plant gives off a very nice aro-
ma, known as bayberry. A north-
ern relative of the wax myrtle is
the bayberry tree, which produc-
es larger berries, used extensively
in making fragrant bayberry can-
dles.
Wax myrtles may reach a


height of 25 feet Their leaves are
evergreen-narrow at the base
and broader toward the upper
end. About midway up the leaf,
coarse teeth appear on the edges.
Wax myrtles produce suckers,
which are small plants that
sprout from the roots. These
suckers grow in clumps or clus-
ters, and if undisturbed, they will
eventually form very large dense
plants. However, if you remove
these suckers from the main
trunk, attractive, small trees can
be produced. The trunk of a wax
myrtle is grayish-white in color.
Wax myrtles can be grown
from seeds, cuttings, and by sim-
ple layering. You should sow
seeds as soon as they mature.
The seeds can be started in a
mixture of equal parts of sand
and .peat moss. Another method
of propagating wax myrtle is to
dig the established plants during
the winter months. Cut the
plants back to within a few Inch-
es of the ground, dig out the root
clumps, and set them in contain-
ers. Within several months, you'll
have good-sized plants. which
may develop into small trees in
just a few years.
Fortunately, there's only one
serious pest of wax myrtle. It's a
caterpillar,. which chews leaves
and tie terminal shoots together.
For details on control of this pest,

Struggle Continues


Over Way to Provide

Health Care Coverage

How to Provide Coverage for Low
Income Families and Reduce Costs
THE PRIVATE HEALTH-CARE REVOLUTION
'As the woeful. "Train-Wreck" refrain of state officials echoed in the
committee rooms of the capitol recently, good news was being heralded
down the street at a luncheon of the James Madison Institute where
members hummed a tune- called "The Private Sector Health Care
Revolution."
Gov. Lawton Chiles and his allies were scoring some points with leg-
islators in town for committee meetings. House Speaker Peter Wallace, D-
St. Petersburg, agreed that perhaps a special session should be called
before next March to consider Chile's trice-defeated health care plan. But
it wasn't all-out support.
History was riding, perhaps, with Melanie S. Tammen, a Winter Park
journalist and research associate :of the James Madison Institute in
Tallahassee as she spoke at the luncheon down the street.
"The private-sector revolution in health care is in cities, across
Florida,' she said. "Companies are developing 'a variety of methods to
make health care more affordable and working through their chambers
of commerce in places like Orlando, Jacksonville and Tampa-are reduc-
ing health-care cost and covering more law-income families.'!
The methods include private (not- government run) purchasing
alliances, medical savings accounts in tandem with low-cost catastroph-
ic health policies and the development of databases to help' employees
comparison-shop among competing medical providers.
'The bad news," she said, "is that the plans promoted by Gov. Chiles
and President Bill Clinton will needlessly channel more..taxpayer dollars
into flawed government schemes that perpetuate the third-party payer
problem.
And there she had it The: THIRD-PARTY PAYER PROBLEM.
Ninety-five percent of the money Ameiicans now spend in hospitals is
someone else's money at the time they spend it and 80 percent of all
physicians' payments are now made with other people's money. Since
someone else is paying the bill, the patients, doctors and hospitals don't
care about costs.
Chiles' proposed plan would be a costly new entitlement program that
does nothing to address the root causes of rising health care costs, she
said, and it contains no strategy to ever transition its over 1 million low-
wage earner enrollees off it


Here's the Capitol News Report
PUBLIC WOULD LIKE A TAX CLEAN-UP
Education and cooperation may replace fines and prosecution some-
what in a radical new approach to enforcement by the .'Florida
Department of Environmental Protection suggested by Dr. Malcolm
Sparrow, a Harvard professor, under a $31,000 contract to smooth rela-
tions between state bureaucrats and the public.
But the public would rather have a clean-up on taxes.
DEP Secretary Virginia Wetherell said the state was entering a new
era of cooperation and partnership between the regulators and the regu-
lated community. "We're reserving our enforcement powers for those who
knowingly and willingly violate environmental laws," she said.,
Sparrow told Wetherell and DEP workers that a national reform
movement is forcing government to think in .creative ways about the
methods and purposes of regulations.
He-coon Gov. Lawton Chiles is hitting at the same thing with his drive
to cut the astonishing number of state rules and regulations that he
claims are making the public "so damn mad with government"
Conservatives think it's outrageous that the state':has to get an up-
east professor to explain cooperation and education to our state officials.
What they'd much rather see Is a clean-up of taxes the environmen-
tal lobbyists have been ,quietly loading the public with throughout the
years while everybody wasn't paying attention.
For instance, the $1 tax on patching a tire when you've picked up a
nail called a toxic waste disposal fee or the $15 environmental tax on your
car radiator when you have it rodded. Then there's the toughest regula-
tion in the nation Florida has on air emissionsfrom auto air-conditioners
that is running up tremendous costs on motorists' in repair bills.
Last year the Florida Legislature let the disposal fee tax on grocery
bottles and containers expire, but even theiconservative legislators were
reluctant in cutting back on that money source. They did, however,
amidst the tears of the environmentalists.

ROUND-UP

by Jack Harper

MORE THAN ONE CHILD-ABUSE HOTLINE NEEDED
An inefficient telephone system or old-fashion bureaucratic ineptness
are causing a crisis in reporting child-abuse cases on Florida's statewide
hotline. Legislators coming back to Tallahassee for a special session and
committee meetings this year should take care of it before some real
tragedies occur.
The problem-according to the Hernando Today newspaper at
Brooksville-is the only toll free child-abuse hotline serving Florida from
the Panhandle to the Keys is swamped. Callers including family members,
law enforcement, hospital officials and even state case workers are put on
hold and often are unable to get through to report cases of abuse.
It took the newspaper's staff three days to get past the computerized
hotline phone-mail system to a Health and Rehabilitative Services work-
er. Imagine the difficulty a family member, a neighbor or an abused child
would have trying to get through in an emergency.
AUTO-FEE REFUNDS: Don't expect a check until the Florida
Supreme Court rules on how much in lawyer commissions can be taken
out of the unconstitutional S295 auto-impact fee Florida charged between
July 1991 and September 1994.
The deadline for motorists to file for a refund of the fee declared ille-
gal by the high court is Oct 2. About 650,000 people are eligible for the
refund and only about 500,000 had requested refunds by Sept. 23,
according to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
TEACHER TENURE: State Education Commissioner Frank Brogan is
expected to name three task forces this week to study how teachers are
trained, certified, disciplined and fired. He has made it clear he wants rec-
ommendations for changing the system-including teacher tenure-dra-
matically by the regular Legislative session in March.
HIKING FEES DROPPED: The Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission rescinded a statewide ruling charging hikers and bird watch-
ers a $25 fee in 10 wildlife management areas, but will ask the Legislature
for authority next year to revamp entry fees to all wildlife management
areas.
Hunters pay a $25 yearly fee to enter all 70 of the state's wildlife man-
agement areas. Last October, the game commission extended the fee to
, hiking and bird watching in 10 of its most popular wildlife areas. The
Legislature refused to allow the commission to revamp all of its entry fees
last year.
SHELLFISH: A tourist who ate raw oysters in Sarasota is the third
person to die in Florida this year from uncooked shellfish and a Duke
University health researcher said cooked oysters can make you sick too.
The state Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services said the
tourist suffered from a liver disease that made him susceptible to the
Vibrio vulnificus bacteria that occur naturally in most oysters. He was the
seventh person infected by the bacteria this year and the second to suc-
cumb after eating raw oysters.
The other deaths-including one from eating raw clams occurred in
May in Dade and Palm Beach counties.
The Duke researcher said health officials have learned that bacteria
is not the only problem with eating raw oysters. Oysters also shelter
viruses that does not kill them.
70 MPH SPEED LIMIT-Congress is about to give states the power
to set their own speed limits on interstate highways, a move that is
expected to bring a 70-mph limit on some less-traveled rural sections in
Florida.
Department of Transportation officials said state legislative approval
is not needed if Congress passes the law arid higher speed limits will
probably be set on Florida highways which were built for speeds of 70
mph. Present speed limits are 65 in rural areas and 55 on urban sections.

"The Best Fall"
By Third Grader, Holly Gray
"The best fall that I remember
was when I was in first grade. I
remember when I went to the
football game. I remember when I
watched the ball game. The Ga-
tors won! I was happy! When I got
home I went to bed. The next
morning I went outside and raked
leaves and jumped in them."

Last week several of our stu-

portunities to visit the work force
first hand. The kindergarten and
first grade classes have recently
-finished a unit on "Community
Helpers". To conclude their stud-
ies they set out on a day-long trip
around our town. They were able
to visit the police at the Gulf
County Sheriffs Department,
then the firemen at 'the Port St
Joe Fire Department Next, they
stopped off at The Star to see how
our news is printed and put to-
gether each week.
The children were very im-
pressed and are thankful to all
those who hosted them for the
day. We all are very impressed at
how all these individuals working

"Obsession" is an appropriate
name for a new fragrance. For, in
many ways, we are a people pre-
occupied with smell-especially
that of our own bodies. Deodor-
ant, perfume, and cologne are a
multi-million dollar business.
Some are not concerned enough
about these.matters. But, most of
us are aware that a hot room and
a hectic pace can turn the pleas-
ant smell of ourselves into a pun-
gent fume. Most of us are "glad
we used our Dial and wish
that everyone did." Uni-sex fra-
grances have also recently been
introduced; This makes it' possi-
ble for menr and women to wear
the same scent, Some mainly fe-
male. oriented companies now
market a line for men. Excuse me.
Call me old-fashioned, a Imale
chauvinist ,or whatever, but I res-
olutely refuse to wear the same
perfume as mny wife. I don't even
want mine to be made' by the
same company. Men need to wear
something with a name like, "old
Spice". I have my doubts about a
guy who would use a fragrance
made by Estee Lauder. I want to
smell nice, but I am willing only
to go so far.
Smell -is a powerful sense
that can; be nostalgic. Certain
scents bring strongly to mind cer-
tain memories. There is even a
pop-psychology called aromather-
apy which suggests that certain
emotions, and even certain be-
haviors, can be encouraged by
the introduction of particular
scents. .
This"grand obsession affects
our language. "I smell a rat," is
not usually a reference to the
rank odor of a rodent. "Your atti-
tude stinks," or "he raised a big
stink over it," are suggestive met-
aphors about a scent that is far
more important than the fra-
grance we wear. We can smell
like the poster child for Aqua Vel-
va'and still the fragrance of our
lives can be less than pleasant.
Growing up in a paper mill
town, when 'we would complain
about the smell, my Father often
commented that "it smells like
fried chicken to me." IF soon

learned what he meant. When the
mill was shut down, there was no
smell, but also no money to buy
groceries. Perspective often deter-
mines our peculiarities and pref-
erences of scent.
The apostle Paul picked up
on this notion and said, "for we
are t 6God the fragrance of Christ
among those who are being saved
and among those who are perish-
ing. To one we are. the aroma of
death leading to death, and to
others the aroma of life leading to
life" (2 Corinthians 2:15, 16,
NKJV).
The scent of sacrifice, service,
and love are most pleasant. There
are people whose attitudes and
actions are not only attractive to
mankind, but 'whse lives are a
sweet incense in the very nostrils
of God. What is the aroma of your
attitude, the scent of your heart,
the fragrance of your life?

Dear Counselor,
I have two sons, one four and
one six-year-old. My husband
and I have always tried to treat
the two boys as equally as possi-
ble. The problem is with our
youngest son, he is a "holy terror".
He seems determined to make life
miserable for himself and the rest
of the family. He persistently acts
out every time we are in a public
place and nearly every time I try to
get him to do something, we get
involved in a huge power struggle.
His behavior is so bad, his older
brother is reluctant to go to pub-
lic places with him. I don't know
how we failed him because we've
tried to raise him and treat him
Just like we have our oldest son,
who has always been a very good
and well-behaved child. Some-
times, I give up and just let the lit-
tle brat have his way. Please tell
me what to do, for he seems to get
worse every day.
Defeated.
Dear Defeated,
It appears you are in the
process of parenting a compliant
child and a strong-willed child.
Properly parenting a compliant
child requires minimal and nor-
mal effort, but properly parenting
a strong-willed child requires


extra skills and extra efforts.
Having a child who functions
in an "obedient mode" is one indi-
cator of a properly parented child.
Notice I said "one Indicator".
There are many other facets of a
person's overall behavior that are
rooted and shaped during early
childhood, but recognizing and
accepting authority, by being obe-
dient, is one of the most impor-
tant. By persistently, consistently
and strategically implementing
rewards, praises, and discipline,
even the most strong-willed
child's behavior can be improved
to acceptable levels. A good fami-
ly counselor can help you improve
your parenting skills and offer
guidance in applying these skills.
Your seeking this professional
help, should prove to be a well-
expended "extra effort".
Sincerely
John Ray, MS

The

Gospel


On Main


Street

By Rev. JeffScav
Pastor of St. Joe Assembly

Safe Place
(I write this editorial to the
Church of Jesus Christ His pre-
cious body.)
The Bible says: "Confess your
trespasses to one another, and
pray for one another, that you
may be healed,. ," (James 5:16
NKJV). That's a tall order! Con-
fess! You mean tell others my
trespasses! NO' WAY! ITLL BE
ALL OVER TOWN THE NEXT
DAY, IF NOT SOONER! Now,
there's a point well made. Where
is a person to go when he/she
knows that they have done wrong
(sinned)? Where is a safe place
for them to go to receive eternal
help? They should surely go the
the Lord first and most definitely.
But what is the Church's re-
sponsibility? James 5:16 says to
"confess your trespasses, (faults,
sins) to one another (other believ-
ers) and pray for one another that
you may be healed. But, why
doesn't this, for the most part,
happen? Why doesn't the one
who know they've done, wrong go
to other brothers and sisters in
the Lord and confess?


There may be several rea-
sons. 1) It may be pride. They
don't want to humble themselves
to admit they've done wrong.
They want to cover it up and be-
lieve that no one will ever find
out. Those who fall into this cate-
gory have miscalculated 'one
thing. GOD! Jesus said, "... For
there is nothing covered that will
not be revealed and hidden that
will not be known" (Mat. 10:26
NKJV). God also said, "be sure
your sin will find you out" (Num.
32:23b).
2) Some may feel they've gone
too far for God to help them. To
say this is to say that what Jesus
did on the' cross wasn't good
enough, nor powerful enough to
deal 'with their sins. 3) Some
don't confess their trespasses
(sins) because they don't feel con-
victed that what they have done
was a sin.
But, I present a fourth rea-
son, that I believe is the .reason
why most people who have done
wrong sinnedi do not come to
their brothers and sister in the
Lord to confess and seek help.
And that reason is they don't
feel safe. They feel that if they do,
confess they will become the new
point of conversation in their
church, and possibly in the com-
munity as well. Instead of the oil
of healing, they believe and have
possibly seen, the stones of criti-
cism and gossip hurled at those
who, in the past, came to the lo-
cal church to confess their sins
and to seek help. Thus, they be-
lieve that would be the same fate
for them Is they were to dare con-
fess their sins.
May I propose to the Body of


Christ that, for the most part,
this case scenario. The world
watches the church to see how
we treat one another. How are we
treating one another? Are we, the
Body of Christ, living up to what
'the Bible says we are to do?
James 5:16 says that we are to
"confess" to one another and
PRAY for one another that we
may be healed. Prayer is talking
to God-not to each other. It's
our God given responsibility to
pray, talk to God, for the one who
has confessed. It is a God pro-
claimed SIN to gossip about one
another. (Do I hear any amens out
there?)
In 1 Peter 4:15, a busy body
(one who gossips) is ranked, by
God, in the same category as
murderer and a thief. The Bible
says: "Death and life are in the
power of the tongue (Prov.
18:21a NKJV). "A perverse man
sows strife, and a whisperer sep-
arates the best of friends" (Prov.
16:28 NKJV). James 3 also tells
us that the tongue is an unruly
member full of deadly poison and
states: "With it (the tongue) we
bless our God and Father, and
with it we curse (slander, gossip
about) men, who have been made
in the similitude of God. Out of
the same mouth proceed blessing
and cursing. My brethren, these
things ought not to be so" (James
3:9-10 NKJV).
In John 8, we read the story
of a woman caught in the very act


of adultery. The Pharisees (the re-
ligious ones) brought her to Jesus
and proclaimed that, according to
the law, she should be stoned.
They wanted to trap Jesus in His
words. He responded by saying
"He who is without. sin among
you, let him cast the first stone at
her." Jesus saw right through
them and their attitudes. The
only one who could have rightly
thrown the first stone was Jesus
for He was without sin. He said,
"Woman, where are those accus-
ers of yours? Has no one con-
demned you?" And she said, "No
one, Lord." Jesus replied, "Nei-
ther do I condemn you; go and
sin no more." None of us are per-
fect. I know that burst some bub-
bles out there, but it's true. Jesus
didn't condemn her. He forgave
her and told her to "go and sin
no more." We have a God given
responsibility to reach out.
"Brethren, if a man is over-
taken in any trespass, you who
are spiritual restore such a one
in a spirit of gentleness, consider-
ing. yourself lest you also be
tempted. Bear one another's bur-
dens, and so fulfill the law of
Christ: (Gal. 6:1-2 NKJV). What is
the law of Christ? "A new com-
mandment (law) I give to you,
that you love one another; as I
have loved you, that you also
love one another. By this all will
know that you are My disciples, if
you have love for one another"


(John 13:34-35). Remember, love
never fails and that love means
"I'm committed to you".
Now the Bible does give us in-
struction on how to deal with
those who are naming the name
of Christ and living in open sin.
(See Mat 18:15-17 & I Cor. 5:1-8).
But I'm dealing with the one who
comes with a repented heart
seeking forgiveness and restora-
tion. What about your attitude?
Are you a Pharisee who Is ready
to stone those (even a brother or
sister. in Christ) who comes to re-
pent and confess their sins? Do
you get on the gossip line-
covered up, as a prayer line-to
slander the one who came to you
and/or the local body of Christ
for help?
So I ask-Where does one go
to find a safe place of help and
restoration if they can't come to
the Body of Christ? The answer is
nowhere of eternal value. They
can go to secular help, but with-
out eternal help they have not
eternal hope. Let's make the
Church a safe place. Hang up
the gossip line and get on your
knees and talk to God about the
one who has confessed their sins
with a repented heart so that we
may be healed.
