City Accepts



Guide To Be



Used for Growth

Plan for Future Features Some

Ambitious Goals For A New Image


During Tuesday evening's
public hearing on Port St. Joe's
city-wide Vision Plan, city com-
missioners unanimously voted to
approve the document to be used
as a guide for future directions for
development of the area.
Before approving the plan,
Mayor Frank Pate told those in
attendance that while he, nor
anyone else he had talked with
concerning the plan. agreed with
100% of the plan. it was a good
plan giving a base to start from,
and several goals to work toward.
Most of the discussion of the
Vision Plan revolved around the
recommendation to seek the
annexaUon into the City of Port
St. Joe land south of the city all
the way to the cape. Several cape
residents were in attendance,
posing questions to the board as
to how such plans would affect
them.
John Jones told the board he
had heard about the annexation
suggestion and wished to know
how far toward the cape the city
was looking, and what type zon-
ing and building regulations
might be put into place.
Russell Moore, Design Studio
West Consultant, explained dur-
ing public meetings held to gather
input for the plan, one of the "key
pieces" to an acceptable plan was
to tie in the character of the area,
especially y its. pristine beauty and
uindisurbed 'eco-igy..Moore said
the easiest way to accomplish
that would be to annex the area
Into the city to allow greater con-
trol (such as zoning and building
codes) to insure the integrity of
the area is not compromised.
He further stated that annex-
ation only works if the residents
of the area want to be annexed.
How far annexation might reach,
and what impact It would have,
would be decided upon by proper-
ty owners (who must petition the
city for annexation) and the city.
Mayor Pate asked the cape
owners how other property own-
ers in the cape area felt concern-
ing the annexation issue.
Sherrie Dodsworth respond-
ed, "Cautious", with a certain
aniount of fear of the unknown.
Commissioner Johnny Linton
suggested the city offer to hold a,


workshop meeting with cape
property owners to discuss the
annexation issue.
The one piece of common
ground that.all present definitely
held was they wanted to prevent a
Panama City Beach" type develop-
ment from destroying south Gulf
County's major asset.'
Some of the recommenda-
tions mentioned in the Vision
Study are already beginning to
take shape. With the gift from
Amerada Hess to the city of 28
acres of bayfront property and a
$700,000 grant for marina con-
struction, plans are moving ahead
to build a marina on the property.
Also $600,000 of 'community
development t block grant money is
in place to fund a downtown revi-
talization project.
New streets, sidewalks, land-
scaping, lighting, and stormwater
drainage will be the first steps
toward reviving Port St. Joe's
downtown area. This project has
been supported by the city and
the Downtown Redevelopment
Committee for a number of years.
The Vision Study was totally
financed by local industry, busi-
nesses, and concerned citizens
under a project sponsored by the
Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce. Copies of the plan can
be viewed at the Gulf County
Chamber office, or for further
informationroontaot.Gulf.County
Chamber of Commerce Executive
Director Tamara Laine.
Artificial Reef Funds
Bill Kennedy, artificial reef
project coordinator, told the board
during their regular meeting that
he had received verbal confinnrma-
tion the $25,000 ,grant for reef
construction had been approved.
The board agreed to advertise for
bids to transfer accumulated reef
construction material to the reef
site, approximately 20. miles off-
shore from the Cape San Blas
lighthouse.
Kennedy said enough materi-
al to build the brtificlal reef had
already been acquired and the
bulk of the grant fund would be
used to transfer it to the site.
"Sandy Reef' will be located at
(loran, coordinates) 13900.0,
(See GUIDE on Page 3)


Funding, to construct the artificial fishing reef [shown on
the map below] was approved this week, it was reported
Tuesday night, at the City Commission meeting. The reef
will be built in the Gulf of Mexico, 20 miles offshore from
Cape San Blas lighthouse. It will be located at loran coordi-
nates 13990.0, 46750.0 in water about 100 feet deep.


Red Tide Comes Goes

Pounds Beach With Dead Fish All
Last Week; Beaches Here Clean
The malady caused by a combination of hot weather,, in-
creasing algae accompanied by a fish kill, known as Red Tide fi-
nally visited Gulf County beaches this past week. Its visit coun- .
teracted The Star's claim that county beaches had escaped the
growing problem which had desecrated Florida beaches all along
the western coast of Florida for the past several weeks.
An influx of dead fish were deposited on area beaches from,
St. 'Joe Beach, adjacent to Highland View, all the way to Mexico
Beach and beyond all last week. When the Red Tide hit, it hit
with a vengeance all alongthe beach area, leaving deposits of
dead and rotting fish to be cleaned up. The fish were a smelly ,
menace all last week, but really began to pile up last Tuesday
and Wednesday.
Gulf County and City of Mexico Beach clean up crews went
to work and now have the beaches clean and beautiful once.
again.
John Mclnnis,, Mexico Beach city manager, said the influx of
dead fish "wasn't very pleasing to the tourists," but stressed the
fact, yesterday, that the beaches were clear once more, after the
smelly invasion by the dead fish.
A work crew from Gulf Forestry .Camp was furnished to the
county and Mexico Beach to rake up and bury the dead fish,
which was accomplished in a short time.
The Red Tide fish kill is usually an annual visit to the waters
of the Gulf of Mexico and causes the inconvenience of the odorif-
erous visit at points along the western shore, of Florida in 'differ- \
ent spots. It has been several years since the local beaches were
victims of the Red Tide and its results.

Good Use

FOR MANY YEARS the huge tank farm which is owned by
Hess Oil Company has stood unused, occupying some very valu-
able real estate in Port St. Joe. It has stood as mute evidence of
several things which could be done with the property which
might enhance the economy of the area.
Finally, a useful purpose for the waterfront acreage has been
suggested which would give Port St. Joe a boost in the business
world, as well as enhance the infrastructure of our city so as to
improve our attractiveness to others, whether it be additional
Jobs or a nice place to come spend a while. Either one would be
a help to our people.
THE PROPOSED MARINA is slightly more than a "proposal",
but it is not yet a certainty. The money is in the bank for its con-
struction, but the permits are not "in hand". To that extent, the
marina is not a certainty, but it is a little more than a proposal.
Something of a marina nature will be built in the area, but until
the permits are obtained, it is not a certainty that it will be built
on the Hess Oil tank farm location.
Wherever it is built, a marina will fill a void which has need-
ed filling for a long while. It's difficult to imagine a city plunked
down as close as Port St. Joe is to the edge of a beautiful bay
and the people not be able to take full advantage of the recrea-
tion possibilities it offers.
When a city has its western-most street running parallel to
within one block from where the water is lapping up against the
shore, and -it has no marina, something is wrong and has been
for many years. Of course, we have had the city boat landing.
which has as its entrance, the western end of one of the city's
major streets-Fifth Street-we can't say we are without en-
trance to the bay. But when that entrance is only 50 feet wide,
our access to the bay is sort of restricted, to say the least.
A FINE, ROOMY MARINA is Just what Port St. Joe needs to
become a part of the boating world. The bay Is Just what we need
to give us a safe, enclosed body of water on which to operate
those boats. It is also proposed to be located near enough to the
business district to attract people who are travelling in their
boats and yachts.
The plans, printed at the bottom of last week's front page of
The Star will provide a facility we can all be proud of and a facili-
ty which Is utilitarian in its purpose. It's purpose is to meet the
needs of the boating public and its design lends to that purpose.
The proposed marina is not just welcomed here in Port St.
Joe; it is welcomed-and will be used-by people within 100
miles of Port St. Joe. And. who knows, after the proposed restau-
rant is built at the facilities, it may get even more use!



More Regulations

THE FLORIDA MARINE FISHERIES Commission is now
making a big thing about regulating the jelly fish harvesting ac-
tivity. What next? The MFC seems determined to extend its pow-
er to be all inclusive of everything that swims, or with' any at-
tempt at harvesting the marine creatures.
Raffield Fisheries has pioneered the harvest of cannonballl
jelly fishfiand suddenly the MFC becomes interested. We suppose
that should the firm become interested ih marketing the annual
invasion of seaweed, the MFC would want to somehow get into
the business of having the final say-so over how the seaweed
was to be collected, how many pounds one could legally take in
a year, and what size boat could be used in the harvest.
COME ON, MFC, GET real! Admit you have it in for Raf-
field's and commercial fishermen in general and get some REAL
credibility! As it is, you are hiding behind a facade of "protecting
and preserving marine animals" to get at those you don't partic-
ularly like. When we do it, it's called, prejudice. When you do it,
you call it making laws and regulations to abide by.
We don't think we are going beyond the bounds of editorial
responsibility when we say you have entirely too much power to
be an appointed board. It's you who should be abolished; not
nets.
FISHERIES FROM OTHER Third World nations applaud
you, however. Your rules make their unregulated marine prod-
uct in more demand. It can be sold easier, at a higher price. You
have done them a favor. The fisheries of South American na-
tions, the orient and all over the world continue to ply their
trade for the lucrative American market using any method they
can come up with to catch fish more efficiently while responsible
American fishermen are anchored by the MFC, its rules and reg-
ulations.

It was the 20th reunion for

I'd left off 20 years ago. I remem-

so I was thankful to get another

And so it is with the

There was some change. You
know, a little gray here, a pound
or two there. O.K., O.K., maybe a
pound or twenty there. A wrinkle
had sprouted around the eyes
that I didn't remember before.

they said it very quietly. Dee sat
in the far corner and if he spoke
at all, 1 missed it. Lest anyone

They came to have a good time.
Oh. they would listen, they

the Braves would have lost.
They've been in a terrible funk for
the last two weeks.
We got to the stadium around
6:00 so Austin and Brian Jones
could get some autographs of
some of the ball players and they
were already calling the players
from their autograph signing,
back into the dugout. I suppose
you have to arrive at the stadium
right after dinner in order for a
kid to get an autograph.
They were still selling souve-
nirs from the shops inside the
stadium, though. They managed
to buy a souvenir or two.
Time hadn't run out on hav-
ing the opportunity to buy things;
it had just run out on the free
stuff


DAVID AND Carol, our
daughter and son-in-law had de-
cided to take their son, Austin,
and his buddy, Brian Jones, to
the ball game, the zoo and to Six
Flags. They invited us to go along
and we took them up on their of-
fer.
Carol realized Saturday, that
Sunday was Father's Day, and
she hadn't bought me a present
to mark the- special day. In order
to kill two birds with one stone,
she informed me that the trip was
my Father's Day present.
"Just throw in a free meal or
two and I'll let you off the hook," I


told her.


ATLANTA IS BUSY getting
the last licks on things they are
trying to finish for the Olympics.
Even the Olympic stadium isn't
quite finished yet. There is still a
lot of landscaping around it to be
put in place. .
Even down in Columbus;
where the ladies softball competi-
tion Is to be held, there is still
plenty of work on thel'new softball
field complex to be done. And the
Olympics are just a month away.

We all got inside the gate and
I was waved over out of the line of
pedestrians to await a golf ,,cart

told to wait until the crowd
thinned out a little and a golf cart
would be dispatched to bring me
back down and take me right to

A COUPLE OF guys sat
about two rows in front of us who
tried to drink all the "ice cold"'

Mexico Beach

Water System
Dedication
The City of Mexico Beach
will be dedicating its new water
works facility on Thursday,
June 20, at 1:30 p.m. CDT with
official ceremonies. On hand
will be representatives from the
U. S. Department of Agricul-
ture-John O. Romano, Deputy'
Administrator of Waterworks'
Division, Rural Utility; Ronald,
Whitfield, Acting State Director
of Rural Development; and
Glenn E. Walden, Program
Director of the Rural Utility
Service, along with other
national, state and county dig-
nitaries.
The new waterworks will
provide additional pumping
capabilities and will reduce the
high level of naturally occurring
fluoride in Mexico Beach's
water supply. The greater vol-
ume of water will bring the lev-
els of fluoride to within accept-
able ranges.
Mexico Beach furnishes
treated water to the Bay County
community, as well as east to
Beacon Hill and GulfAire.

Quick Work

Dear Editor: '
I am writing to commend our
fine Police Department for the
great work that they do. I was al-
ways impressed that they take
the'time to walk the streets and
check each door on every busi-
ness after it has closed to make
sure that it is locked, and that
they offer excellent gun safety
classes. .
However on Sunday, I was
< particularly impressed with the
speed that my sailboat was recov-
-ered and how it was recovered af-
ter being stolen. Within five min-
utes of my call, officer Michael
Belmarez arrived and began tak-
ing the information', Five minutes
later Sergeant Butch Ahrent ar-
rived with a record that someone'
had Inquired about the boat a few
days earlier. The caller had left a
phony name, but had left the cor-
rect phone number. It is amazing
to me that these records are kept
and the officers were able to lo-
cate them so quickly. Through a
series of phone calls, my boat
was recovered within a half hour,',
tied up under. the Oak Grove
Bridge. Officer Belmarez even
helped me pull it to safety.. Many
thanks to Officer Michael Belma-
rez. Butch Ahrent, the dispatcher
involved, Chief Richter, -and Lt.
Hersey for doing such a fine job.

Compassion
Dear Editor,
On the morning of June 7, at
8:30 as I was coming to work
from Mexico Beach-at Highland
View-two dogs were on the
..beach side. The larger dog started
to go across but at that time a car
was approachfng.'The young lady-
hit the dog. She stopped after I
stopped. At that time a gentleman'
stopped and he had a car phone.
He said he would take care of
everything. He had a deputy there
before I knew it. The neighbor
gave a blanket they could use to
put the dog on. They took the dog
to the vet but the dog died.
When I came to town I went:
by a friend who has a business in
St. Joe. They had passed the ac-
cident. I was telling them about
this gentleman. I said I didn't
know who he was, they said that
is our Sheriff here in Gulf
County.
That kind of deed meant so
very much to me-he will never
know-it also meant a lot to any-
one passing by.
Just to know he has compas-
sion for an animal. Animals like
dogs and cats are put here for us
to love and care for and when e

"Disturbed
Star Publishing Co. "
To The Editor,
I am very disturbed about the
recent firing of Fred Priest, as
Athletic Director of Port St. Joe
High School. For:the life of me, I
can't understand how our school
board could allow a man with
such a great record get away from
us. After reading the June 6th
edition of the Star, I just had to
speak out. You reported that the
Florida Athletic Coaches Associa-
tion had : named our school
among the top five high school 3A
sports programs in the state. It
was the top program of public
high school. What an honor! you
also reported that we were the
only school in the state to ever
win three consecutive sportsman-
ship ;'awards. Fantastic Fred
Priest was the Athletic Director
all three years, so our school
board allowed him to be fired.
This is crazy I don't see how we
could hope to fill the position
with a better man.
I have heard Fred speak in
church and have found him to be
an excellent speaker with high
moral standards. A great role
model for our kids to look up to.
His wife,. Donna is intelligent,
friendly and filled with compas-
sion. His three children are bright
and well mannered. His oldest
daughter, Harmony was elected
to be President of the Student
Government Association at the
high school during the next
school year. It is good Christian
families like this that makes our
community such a great place to
live. I hope and pray that our
school board will reconsider their
decision before it's too late.
Sincerely,
/s/ James T. Craig

Summer Time Is A Great Reading Time For Kids


by
Richard W. Riley
U.S. Secretary of Education
It's June, and kids all over
America have poured out of school
doors, racing into summer fun.
They've left their desks and
classrooms behind. But will they
also leave their learning behind?
Unfortunately, many will.
Studies 'show that over the
summer, students can lose up to
three to four months of the read-
ing and writing skills they ac-
quired during the school year.
The fact of the matter is, when it
comes to reading and writing
skills, you either use them or lose
them.
That's why it's so Important
to keep students reading over the
summer months, even for only 30
minutes a day. Kids can still read
and have plenty of time for play-
ing ball, swimming, and other
summer activities.
Good reading habits, like all
other educational activities, begin
in the home. So my message to
parents, grandparents, aunts,
uncles, and all other adults who
are responsible for raising a child
is this: Get irivolved this summer
Here are some tips:
*Read to your young children
* and share books with your older
children.
*Make a place for newspa-


Mr. and Mrs. Ike P. Mincy,
Sr. have announced the engage-
ment and forthcoming marriage
of their daughter, Janice Faith

pers, magazines, and books in
your home. Read the important
news stories of the day with your
children, or the sports pages or
the family section. Let your chil-
dren lead the way-ask them to
pick out something that interests
them. But just read! And make
sure your children see you read.
*Take your children to the li-
brary and make sure they get a
card. Show them that there are
other places in the world to visit
besides the video arcade at the
mall.
*Limit TV viewing. Yes, I
know that's a tall order. But
when kids watch six, seven hours
a day, we've got to say as parents,
'Enough's enough-close the set
and open a book!"
*Ask your children to write to
relatives arind friends. If you have
access to a computer, have them
send regular e-mail messages, be-
cause In this day and age, litera-
cy means computer literacy, too.

Dear Counselor,
I've recently lost my family
dog. It got hit by a car driven by a
young man in front of my house.
Now when I come home and there
is no one to greet me. I break
down and cry. Also, I have a lot of
anger towards the young man
who was driving because he prob-
ably was not paying attention and'
being careless like most
teenagers. I think about my dog
constantly and friends have sug-
gested that I go get a new puppy.
Is this a good idea?
Sincerely.
Sad in St. Joe
Dear Sad in SL.4Joe, .
It sounds like you are experi-
encing normal reactions to loss,
grieving by breaking down and
crying-and by experiencing anger
toward the driver who hit your'
dog.'Furthermore, animals do
become a significant part of your
life and after losing one, you
grieve the same way yo- would if
it was a human. Experts say that,
there are five stages to the grief
process-and you experience these
feelings in all losses over a time
period approximately one year. To
begin, stage one Is when you are
disoriented and trying to figure
out what happen. Stage two is
denial, "no this didn't happen" or
"1 don't believe it". Stage three is
anger-which can be directed -
toward yourself or someone else.
For example, in your situation
you are angry at the drive and
think he acted carelessly.


Although that could be the case,
try to remember that all teenagers
are not careless and accident do
happen. Stage four is guilty this Is
where you question yourself,
"Why did I let the dog out? or If
only..."
Remember, it happened and
you can not change the past.
What you can do is work on stage
five, which is resolution by realiz-
ing it is alright to miss and mourn
for your companion by crying.
Time will assist in the healing. so
will acceptance. Although a new
puppy can not replace your old
one, eventually you will know
when you, are ready; for a new
companion.. Please.call the. Gulf
County Guidance Clinic at 227-
1145 if we can be of any further
assistance or if you notice that.
. you are grieving to the point that
it is unhealthy. For example. If
you are unable to function in your
normal, daily life you possibly
could be suffering from mild
depression and we can help you.
Sincerely,
Melissa Ramsey, B.S..

Avoid Conflicts With Alligators


Every year in Florida the
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission receives 10.000 or more,,
complaints about alligators ven- ,
touring too close to humans.
Many of the complaints are
-valid and the problem gators
need to be removed but in some
instances people contribute to the
problem by their actions, said Lt.
Stan Kirkland, the GFC's public
information coordinator in Pana-
ma City.
"Any alligator over four feet in
length that poses a threat to hu-
mans or their property. including
pets or livestock, will be removed
once a complaint is filed with our
agency," KirklAnd said. "Alligator
trappers are assigned the task of
locating the offending gator and
removing it.
"These gators are humanely
killed and the hides, meat and
other sellable parts used as pre-
scribed by GFC regulation."
Sometimes though, alligators
are lured near .people by such
practices as dumping fish scraps
in the water near docks or fish
camps, or from individuals feed-
ing alligators, Kirkland said.
"Alligators that are fed,
whether intentional or not; al-
most always have to be destroyed
because they tend to associate
humans with food. Not only that,
it's illegal to feed them under
Florida law and wildlife officers
will cite individuals who do so,"
he said.
S Other tips he suggested to
avoid conflicts with alligators in-

cal in 1995 as plant manager of
the Gulfport, Miss., plant, which
is now closed. Prior to joining Ari-
zona Chemical, his most recent

fice. ; ,
Originally from Rome. Ga..

express their gratitude to the
family that consented to the do-
nation of the transplanted organ.
Organ donation is truly the "gift
of life", according to the Alabama
Organ Center, the state's official,
agency for facilitating organ dona-
Lion.


Heart transplantation is per-'
formed when a person's heart has
failed and no other treatment is
possible. "Transplantation allows
a person to return to a nearly
normal lifestyle," said Dr. James
K. Kirklin, cardiac surgeon and
director of the UAB Heart Trans-
plantation Program.
Dr. Kirklin and Dr. Robert,
Bourge, cardiologist and medical
director of the program, stressed
that improved awareness of the
critical need for organ donation is
vital to the success of the trans-
plant program. The family that
consents to organ donation is al-
lowing something truly good to
result from an otherwise tragic
event.


UAB's transplant program,
which also includes kidney, liver,
lung and pancreas transplants, is
among the top programs nation-
ally.
At present in Alabama, more
than 850 people are waiting for
organ and tissue transplants of
various types. For some patients,
in Alabama and across the na-
tion, the wait is too long; they will
die before an organ becomes
available.
It was reported to The Star


Tuesday of this week that Jimmy
is still at UAB in Birmingham.
His in-hospital recovery period is
estimated at six weeks. His family
hopes that he can return home
by July 1st as he is presently do-
ing fine and his daily exercise in-
cludes a three-mile trek. During
the recovery period at UAB a bi-
weekly biopsy is being performed
to gauge the performance of his
new heart as well as .check for
any signs of a possible rejection
of the transplanted organ. by his
body.

Response

After reading the Panama City News Herald's state-
ment it came to no surprise, you don't need written
proof to print news-all you need is rumor.
It ismy opinion this is a timely move'of dirty politics to
benefit some individual.

After being relieved of my position with the Gulf
County Sheriffs Office, I filed with Tallahassee for
unemployment. Sheriff Coats' response to Tallahassee
was "no reason", "no misconduct": This is a state doc-
ument.

If, at the time I had committed any type of misconduct
while in office, the property authorities wottld have
charged me as anyone else.

I have done, no wrong except being a victim of politics.
I would not seek the position of sheriff if I had.

Can Teeth Last,


A Lifetime?


Can your teeth last a life
time? Yes, The deep-rooted
belief that you must Inevitably
lose your teeth as you grow
older ranks among the Most
serious of the old wive's tales.
There is no reason to resign
yourself to replacing teeth with
false ones. With good care,
your teeth have an excellent
'chance of lasting a lifetime.,
The greatest single cause
of tooth loss in adults is
pyrorrhea (gum disease) and
not, as most people believe,
cavities. But deposits that
cause this gum disease can be
regularly removed through good
home hygiene, and by the
dentist.
It's seldom .too late to


begin taking really good care of
your teeth and it's obviously
well worth the effort. Dentures,
efficient as they are, simply,
don't function as well as your..
natural teeth. For convenience
and performance there are no
teeth like your own.
If you want to be a little
gross teeth can last more
than a lifetime.. Full sets of
teeth, have been 'found in the
skulls of skeletons over a
thousand years old. If they can
do it you can too.

Wewahitchka
High School









Recently Wewahitchka High
School and the Gulf County
School System suffered a great
loss when Les Gortman died in a
tragic automobile accident. Les
was more than one of our mainte7-
nance men-he was a friend who
for years has been an integral
part of our schools on this end of
the county. Les was never "too
busy" to listen to a problem or a
request for help, always had a-
grin and maybe a story to share,
and seemed to know and be liked
by everyone. What a great quality
to remember-it will make his ab-
sence easier to bear.
Life, of course, goes on. The
second summer school session is
underway and will last until July
2nd. The new nine day sessions
seem to be working well for most
students, trading out longer days
for fewer number of days. We are
all hoping that the new "Block
Scheduling" will help reduce the
* need for summer school in the fu-
ture. Wouldn't that be great?
Students, age 15-18. Interest-

" I know it's early to talk about
dress codes but some parents
start buying things early to avoid
the last minute rush. Parents,
please look at a handbook that
describes clothing that is in viola-
tion of the code-don't just rely
on what your student says. The
code is fairly specific., Be careful
about shirts with cartoons that
Contain questionable material,
such as nudity or slang words or
statements that might have dou-
ble meaning! Also, any picture or
, reference to tobacco, alcohol, or
illegal drugs is unacceptable.
Other references to shirts, pants
or shorts, etc.. need to be ob-
served.
.:Part of our responsibility
these days Is to try to teach stu-
dents how to conform to society.
If they are expected to leave
school and gain employment.
someone must encourage them to
act and dress in a manner that is
most likely to help them "fit In".
Promoting colorful, eccentric, or
"rebellious" outfits won't help
them in the business world, un-
less they plan to play rock music
or make and sell colorful, eccen-
tric, or rebellolpus outfits. Take
note of systems that have gone
back to requiring uniforms to
combat the "do your own thing"
mayhem.

I guess that's not a problem. One

three Calicos of his own. And we

hope It will happen.
Last month, a dear friend,
one of the five or so ladies who
have adopted me as a long lost

day and feed and spend quality
time with the cats. She then said
brightly, "Bring them along."
Bless her. My face shone like the

The Cat Carrier Experience
If you've never had the cat
carrier experience, I urge you to
try it. I'd hate for. anyone to pass
from this life, without trying this
one experience which will test
your wits, and also your humani-

unwilling animal into a cat carri-

Now, the first time a tropical


storm hit Apalachicola, where I
was then working, Catey had just
had kittens. I drove across Apa-
lachicola braving 60 mph winds
to "rescue" my cat, her five kit-

you can catch them by surprise.
you bring out the carrier, and you
can forget it. You have to inch
.them towards it as if you're just
casually going over to Inspect it.
Then grab them and stick them-
in, avoiding teeth, claws and
whatever else they can injure you
with.
During Opal, the cats knew
something was up. Perhaps it
was the fact that the police were

ly chewing my fingernails and
glued to Channel 13. But they
ran for it when I approached. It
took an hour to get two cats in
one carrier, and then they carried
on all the way to Bristol. They
fought like they hadn't known
each other most of their three
years of life. They howled, they'
foamed at the mouth, they
scratched the cage door. Will I do
it again? If there's another hurri-
cane, absolutely.
Getting them in the carrier
for the vacation was surprisingly
easy. I think the fact that I had
packed the car didn't register.
They were too busy hissing at our
"new" kitty (only with us for six
months, still a newcomer.) I got a
cardboard crate for her, and put
them In the plastic one. Soon, we
were en route, them loudly pro-

James E. "Jamie" Lester
FOR
Property Appraiser
"Gulf County's Own"
Dear Friends,
As you may know, I have decided to run for your county
property appraiser. Like so many individuals when they
receive their education and gain experience, they have to leave
their home county and some have to leave their state in order
to get a job they're educated in. I am simply tryingto use what
I have learned, as well as, my work experience to help and t
work for the people.
Since graduating high school in .Gulf County, I have
earned my masters degree in business administration and I
hold a state certified residential appraiser's license. I once was
a real property tax consultant, where I fought on the side of the
property owner for fair and lower property assessments. Also James E. "Jamie" Lester, BoJohn
worked 2.5 years at the Bay County Property Appraiser's Lester and T'rey Lester, three of the
Office. Those individuals who know me, know I am a positive five generations of Lesters from
person and negative politics is something I do not believe in. I Gulf County.
am running on my merits alone and my willingness to work
hard for the people. I am not running against anyone on a personal basis, only for the chance to serve
my home county.
I am applying for this position in order to help the people of the county, and stand up for them
against the bureaucracy of the state, and try to give back to the county that gavie so much to me when
I was growing up. I want my child to be raised in the same county that I was raised in and enjoy his
grandaddy, BoJohn, and his great grandparents, Ed and Marie Wynn of Port St. Joe. This county has
so much to offer when it comes to the beautiful natural resources and most of all, the kind and caring
people that live here.
I am asking for your vote and the chance to serve you. I intend to work hard for you, and give
to this county all I can in order to make sure everyone is treated fairly. All elected officials should
remember, and never forget, how they got in office. The people elect public officials and the primary
responsibility of that elected official is the people. I hope to see all of you in the near future and hope
you will consider, and most of all, vote for me, James E. "Jamie" Lester, your friendly hometown
appraiser.
Sincerely Your Friend,





Jamie Lester

when' many people were
called by double names.
Oliver F. Taylor One small boy said he had
Visitation Miister, First il am h cu
United Methodist Church a middle name so he could
tell if he was in trouble.
When his. mother called '"James ,Michael," he
knew she wanted him right now. With this kind
of emphasis he knew "trouble was brewing for
him.".
However, names are used to describe who
we are. In our area some; call themselves Gators
or Seminoles to describe their allegiance to a
football team. We identify with many places and,
things to give our preference. In Acts 11:26 we
find, "and in Antioch the disciples were for the
first time called Christians." This is the name,
that is my first priority. I'm proud to be called. a
Christian. How about you?

Don't Let Red

Tide Spoil Your

Vacation Plans
"Don't let red tide cancel your
weekend pl ns"-that's the mes-
sage the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
is sending out to Big Bend resi-
dents who are considering a. trip
to the Gulf. While red tide is
present in Wakulla, Franklin, and
Gulf counties, residents can still
fish, swim and stroll on Florida's
Gulf Coast beaches as long as
they practice caution. Those pre-
cautionary measures include:
For everyone: Enjoy your 'day
at the coast. However., if you have
asthma, emphysema or are sus-
ceptible to upper respiratory
problems, be especially cautious.
Sea spray carrying the red tide
toxin can cause upper respiratory
iritations. If you experience skin
irritations while swimming or
boating, get out of the saltwater;
rinse off with fresh water and
avoid the Gulf until red' tide is
gone. If onshore winds are brisk
and the surf ijs choppy, chances
:iof experiencing problems are
greater.'
For anglers: "If the fish are
biting and fighting it's okay to eat "
,them," said Ed Cohklin, IDEP Di-
rector of Marine Resources. How-
ever, if the fish are lethargic, cir-
cling at the top of the water,
floating or are dead-don't eat
Stem.

B Ocklocknee Bay, Apalachicola
Bay and St. Joe Bay remain
closed to shellfish harvesting be-
cause of high red tide counts.
Only oysters, clams, and coqul-
nas can not be harvested from
these areas. Other shellfish and
fish can .be harvested and con-
sumed.
:DEP marine scientists report
an overall decrease in the num-
bers of dead fish washing ashore
in Northwest Florida, arid Florida
anglers report .successful fishing
excursions in the St. Marks, Car-
'rabelle and Carrabelle River
areas. "We've confirmed that an-
glers out of St. Marks and Carra-
belle have made excellent catches
of grouper, Spanish and king
Mackerell" said Frank Stephen-
son, spokesman for the Big Bend
Saltwater Classic. "We're confi-
dent that red tide shouldn't pose
a serious problem for anglers if
they follow the precautionary
,measures and practice common
sense."



PRIVATE INDUSTRY COUNCIL
.'CLOSES-NEW WORKFORCE
DEVELOPMENT BOARDS NOT
OFFERING JTPA SERVICES TO
PUBLIC
On July 1, the Florida Pan-
handle Private Industry Council,

pola Regional Workforce Develop-
ment Board (Region Four, serving

workforce development plans in
,the state that call for dividing the
:current service delivery area. Un-.
der this new configuration, feder-
al JTPA programs will continue to
assist Northwest Florida and its
i residents as they have for the last
12 years, but under different
grant entities.

ciates of Panama City. It will be
held at the Gulf County Library

way in our area, and the new
treatments on the horizon.
