Smelly Subject

SBrought Before

County Board
St, Joe Beach resident Crawford Jackson approached-
the Gulf County Commission at their meeting Monday
evening, with the statement,-1l want to bring you a smel-.
ly subject for your consideration."
Jackson said the visitation of the Red Tide was de-,
positing dead, fish on his stretch of St. Joe Beach which':
were just "piling up" and creating a a: problem. "There .'.
are thousands of dead fish which are causing residents in
the area a stinking problem," he said. '.
Commissioner Michael Hammond answered him, say-
ing. "We have been on the beach every day for the last
several days removing the fish. They are just coming in
faster than we can cart them off. We were even there
Saturday and Sunday. The fish were right back again the
next day."
Administrator Don Butler told Jackson, "We picked
up 400 pounds of fish the first day, and 600 pounds a
day for the next two days."
Solid Waste Director Joe Danford said, "Monday was
the first day of incorporating the beach cleaning ma-
chine in the dead fish removal program. We don't know
how well it's going to work," he said. "Mexico Beach is
also using their beach cleaning machine for dead fish re-
Jackson said, "Mexico Beach beaches appear to be
cleaner than ours. I don't know if we are getting more
fish deposited on our beaches or if Mexico Beach is doing
a better job. The beach even smells after the fish have
been removed."
"All we can do about that is hope for a good stiff east
wind for a few days," Butler remarked.

County's SurfRake Cleaning Up Mess

Gulf County's beach cleaning machine is pressed into
duty Monday to help rid beach areas of the stench caused
by dead fish, killed by the visitation of the 'Red Tide'". The
problem struck the county's beaches in the St. Joe Beach/
Beacon Hill area and caused a clean-up problem all week.

Keep A Wary Eye i

WITH THE APPREHENSION of two separate dealers in con-
trolled substances during the past week, the alarm goes out that
Port St. Joe might be gaining the attention of dealers who think
maybe Gulf County is a safe place to do business. We don't need
this type of business.
Maybe the two instances are merely happenstance or an oth-
erwise isolated pair of transgressions we had to deal with. And,
maybe, again, it is the tip of the iceberg which is protruding
above the water, or a portender or what is trying to become a
real problem with which we will have to deal. It has happened to
other communities of less importance throughout the nation.
When it comes, it is tough to deal with. It's harder to get rid of
than it is to keep from gaining a foothold in the first place.
OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT community is to be congratulat-
ed for being alert on these two occasions and nipping them in
the bud. For whatever it's worth, the two interceptions of the un-
lawful substances and its suppliers, is a significant accomplish-
ment. Nearly $100,000 worth of the substance apprehended is
significant enough in itself. The apprehension of the material be-
fore it hit the street is another, more significant accomplish-
We should be alerted to the fact that a new "player" has en-
tered on the narcotics scene here in Gulf County. Law enforce-
ment officers apprehended a sizable amount of powdered co-
caine in the arrest Wednesday evening. We are accustomed to
them picking up various amounts of crack cocaine but not the
powdered variety and certainly not in such large quantities.
OUR PEOPLE HAVE have been alert and effective in trying
to keep drugs and their use at a minimum here in Gulf County.
In spite of that vigilance, we sometimes feel it is getting the best
of us. With the emergence of powdered cocaine in our county, we
should all pledge ourselves to be doubly alert to the problem
which has infected our entire nation to some degree.
We can't put up with the problem here in our county. It
causes and magnifies too many problems with our young, mid-
dle aged and elderly citizens alike.
Our congratulations go out to the law enforcement commu-
nity for their vigilance and alert action.

Many Parks
PORT ST. JOE and Gulf County are all becoming populous
with parks. It's good for the people to have so many places to
use and enjoy. It gives a certain look of stability and security to
the various communities which no other facility could offer in
quite the same manner. They also show a certain amount of per-
manence and interest in the people. especially children.
For a county this size to boast of over a dozen ball fields-
most of them lit for night playing-first class tennis courts,
parks for picnicing and other activities, playgrounds and several
parks equipped for cooking outside; is almost an unheard of feat
for a small county. There are more recreational facilities which
the cities, county and schools have control over than those enu-
merated in the paragraph above. These are all for the use of our

I: f Cathy and I can just hang

things can blur a little when
* they get to whizzing past. I know
for sure it was back in the early
seventies. We got married about
two years after sitar strumming
went out pf vogue. For our first
anniversary I bought her a pair
of plaid, double knit, bell bottom
pants. It was a little more than
I'd planned to spend, but I was
attempting to show the afore-
mentioned doubter that her new
grandson-in-law could be the
epitome of elegance and style.

There are more parks and expansions on current parks com-

THE LARGE NUMBER of parks and game facilities, also
bring a king-size burden to our cities and county. They occupy a
large portion of the various budgets. Still, there is complaining q
from some because they are not kept squeaky clean, the grass
clipped to regulation at all times and maintenance not quite
what they would like to see.
The public finances and manpower are not unlimited. In this
case, and because the parks, as desirous as they are, pose a tre-
mendous expenditure of manpower and money each and every
year to our taxpayers. We should expect to do some of the neces-
sary upkeep work ourselves. Pick up your trash and place it in
the container offered, or take It home with you. Better yet, don't
be a litter-bug in the first place.
BOTH CITIES AND county governments have gone to a great
deal of effort to provide beautiful and useful park facilities in
practically every community, incorporated or unincorporated, "
which has a knot of residences, in the county.
It looks good and makes us proud to see a fine, convenient
boat landing at places like White City, Wewahitchka, Indian
Pass and Overstreet. They need attention. The ball fields and ..
recreatiuiial parks at Port St. Joe, Wewahitchka. Beacon Hill, St.
Joseph Peninsula, Dead Lakes, Howard Creek, etc.. are an as-
set, as well as a liability.
Let's all pledge to do what we can to keep them looking good ,
and remain useful to the many people who use them.1

Of Mad I
WHO WAS IT wrote "Only
mad dogs and Englishmen come
out in the noon-day sun"? Wasn't
it Rudyard Kipling? Wasn't he
writing about the stifling heat "in
It's officially .been summer
now for a week and people from
all over are showing "mad dog"
We all shouldn't be surprised,
however, since it happens every
year about this time. The weather
gets hot and folks from all over
begin to show the foolish tenden-
cies. By golly, I just happened to
think. Maybe that's why election-
eering was -changed from spring
to summer! That way the politi-
cians will have a built-in excuse
for acting foolish.,
But politicians aren't the only
folks who show foolish tendencies ,
when the weather begins to push
the mercury up into the 100's,
the afternoon showers begin to
come with some regularity and
the grass begins to grow faster.

By Wesley Ramsey

immune from this, malady which
affects human beings in the hot
temperatures, either.
Just take a look at what hap-
pened at the Baptist's convention
earlier this month. The folks at
the convention drew up a piece of
paper which calls on independent
churches-and all Baptist
churches are "independent" when
it comes to worship style, boy-
cotts and the like-to boycott Dis-
ney entertainment productions
for their managers offering medi-
cal protection to both members of
a homosexual partnership, just
like they do a married couple.

Just as expected, that piece
of paper made a lot of Baptists
mad; and just like Baptists, they
are making their voices be heard.,
The biggest objections are coming
from Baptists who abhor homo-
sexual "arrangements", as being
opposed in the Bible.

ONE LEADER IN the Baptist
church asked, "What am I going
to d6 with the tickets to Disney
World I have purchased for my
family to use during our vacation
this summer?"
Good questions
If they were my tickets, I
would bundle the kids up in the

car and take off for Disney World
just like I had planned.
The, reason all Baptist
churches are Independent in
their operations is because they
don't always agree completely
with Baptist leaders.
Another Baptist [not me, al-
though I, too am Baptist] made
the very real point of asking the
leaders what they thought Jesus"
would have said to such a recom-

of baseball. They come in for
more than their share of uncom-
fortable activity.
The other day I asked my
grandson, Bill, if he didn't miss
-being a part of the diamond boys
this year; especially since some of
his buddies, such as Adam Fau-
rot of Blountstown, are making a
name for themselves on the base-
ball field.
"Just what can I miss in not
being dirty, sweaty, burning up
and wearing those hot, uncom-
fortable uniforms day in and day
out?" he answered. "Not only
that, but it's really no fun having

to beat out a bunt and run,at top
speed in temperatures of 100 and

more." .
Not being paid the millions,:
which the professionals receive,
sort of takes the fun out of it. I
would suppose.

THESE ARE NOT the only
ones who find themselves acting
strange during the hot summer
months. We can think of hun-
dreds of others whb wait until the
summer months come along- to
step up their activities and swear
and declare they are having fun
or acting rationally.

Commissioner Jessie Armstrong presented them with a check for
$2,000.00 and Sheriff Frank McKelthen added another $500.00 to
the pot.
A park similar to "Under the Oaks" recreation area in Parker is
being planned for construction on the shores of Lake Alice. The con-.
struction will be done by local volunteers and contractors to defray
much of the expense. Several thousand dollars have already been
donated to the recreational project, Fund raisers are currently
i#nderway and in the planning stages to raise the needed money.
The county donation is from recreational funds for District 1,
and the sheriff's department funds were received from film makers

Safety: A

This Fou
By Bill Nelson
State Treasurer, Insurance
Commissioner and Fire Marshal
Fireworks injuries are an un-
fortunate part of each Fourth of
July. On average, firecrackers,
sparklers and other fireworks
cause 12,000 Injuries nationwide
each year.
As State Fire Marshall, I'm
worried that random fireworks
displays and other antics this
Fourth of July will bring with
them another series of accidents,
.injuries and even deaths.
High-powered fireworks as-
sortments are illegal in Florida.
But, Illegal or not. all fireworks
are unpredictable, and can cause
serious injury-even sparklers In'
the hands of children.
In fact. more than one-third
of the fireworks-related injuries'in
1994 were suffered by children,
according to the Consumer Prod-
uct Safety Commission. Two In
Florida resulted In death. About
35 percent of all of the Injuries
were to hands and fingers; 29
percent were to the head and
face; and, 16 percent were eye in-
In 1993, a young man in Bro-
ward County was killed while
working with fireworks at his
kitchen table. In 1994, two men
died in fireworks accidents, one
in Polk County when a backyard
'rocket exploded, the other in Bro-
ward County when a mortar at a
public display blew up.
Florida law prohibits the sale
or use of fireworks, except certain
non-explosive products like
sparklers and such. The law al-
lows for the sale and use of novel-
ty products and trick noisemak-
ers, including smoke bombs,
snake pellets, party poppers and
similar products.
Under the law, the sale and
use of illegal fireworks could re-
sult in a one-year jail' term and a
fine of up to $1,000.
For a safer Fourth of July,
follow these do's and don't:
SKeep fireworks out of the,
hands of children:
Light sparklers in a clear
area away from automobiles and
homes, dry leaves and fJammable
materials such as charcoal lighter,
fluid or gasoline;

The Southern Chinch Bug

Methods to Eliminate This "True Bug"

The chinch bug belongs to a
group of insects we call "true
bugs", along with plant bugs and
stink bugs they have that charac-
teristic "buggy" odor if crushed.
Chinch' bugs start the size of a
pinhead when first hatched (red-
dish in color with a white strip)
and grow to 1/5 inch adult (black
with white or silvery wings). They
feed on the grass by sucking juic-
es which leads to a yellow, and
then brown color as grass dies.
Most rapid loss occurs when tem-
peratures are high and grass is
dry. Areas near the edges of
walks and drives' are often the
first to be affected.
How to detect them: Chinch
bugs can be seen with the unaid-
ed eye. To spot them part the
grass at the edge of a yellowing
spot and watch a few minutes.
Repeat this several times. If
there, they will be seen scunrying
about. Another technique is to
cut the two-ends from a coffee
can, push it into the soil, and
then slowly fill it with water. If
present, chinch bugs will swim to
the surface.
An easier method is to mix
two tablespoons of any dishwash-
ing soap to two gallons of water
(without making suds) and pour-
ing this over 4 two foot square
area that is yelowirig. Wait a few
minutes and if chinch bugs are
present they'll come up. Always
check at the edge of where yellow

turns to green. Checking in dead
areas will give poor results.
Non-chemical controls:
studies have revealed that the fre-
quent application of liquid or
quick release fertilizers encourage
chinch bugs. Going to two fertiliz-
er applications .per year (March
and August) and using a 16-4-8,
15-0-15 or 10-10-10 (minimum
30% slow release nitrogen) has
shown to reduce the incidence of
chinch bugs. Many homeowners,
using low fertilizer levels, report
going years without having
chinch bugs.
It has also been shown that
prolonged periods of moisture
stress encourages chinch bugs.
'Keeping the lawn watered (but
not over-watered) ,makes a differ-
ence in their activity. Remember
that mowing high with a sharp
blade conserves water and helps
to prevent drought stress as well
Thickly thatched lawns-ones
where old dead runners were nev-
er- removed before grass was al-
lowed to grow back-tend to har-
bor chinch bugs.. Such lawns may
need de-thatching. There are spe-
cial machines that can be rented
to do this.
Finally, there are varieties of
St. Augustine grass,,that are re-
sistant to chinch bugs. The newt-,
est one on the market is a variety
.that wants full sun and most
yards cannot provide this so oth-
er varieties would perform better, ,

even if they are less tolerant of'
chinch bugs.
Chemical options: When it
i is determined chinch bugs are
present and causing damage, a
pesticide should be applied. Prod-
ucts containing Diazinon, Durs-
ban, or Orthene are suggested for
homeowner use.
To apply a product, read the
pesticide label. If liquids are
used, they can be applied with a
hose-end attachment. To make
sure that the proper amount is
used, do a test run with only wa-
ter in the jar and see how far that

Commends Feltrop's Efforts

Dear Editor:
This letter is to say thank you
to Wewahitchka and one special
community member Vanessa Fel-
trop who made the experience of
a lifetime, possible for a handful of
foreign exchange students.
Residents of Wewahltchka
opened their hearts and homes to,
three curious and special teenag-
ers from Germany, France, and
Brazil. These families set an extra
place at the table and shared
their day-to-day lives with kids
Whose dream was to experience
real life in in America. After high
school year, these same students
are now returning to their homes
around the world taking with
them a little bit of Florida's gener-
ous spirit. They will in turn share
that experience with their own
families and communities.
All this would have not been
possible without the hard work
and dedication of Vanessa Fel-
trop. It was Vanessa Feltrop who
talked to local families last sum-
mer and first got them Interested
in the Idea of hosting a foreign
teenager. It was Vanessa Feltrop
who contacted the high schools,
enrolled the students and ,super-

vised both students and families
throughout the year. Without our
local representative's, commit-
ment, the PAX program would not
have flourished in Wewahitchka
enriching the lives of all involved.
This message of appreciation
'comes from our main office in
Greenwich, Connecticut with
heartfelt thanks, We couldn't
have done it without all of youl
Sincerely, :
/s/ Laura Baldwin

The tournament's initial
game Saturday began at 7:00
p.m. when Port St. Joe left Apa-

defense combined with 15 base
hits in five innings at the plate.
Only four of St. Joe's batters were
victims of strike outs.,
Leading hitters for Port St.
Joe were: Timothy King wj A
three triples and a double; Bart

singles; Chad Lucas, a double;
Austin Hbrton, two singles.
St. Joe's Travis Burge took
the mound in the first two In-
nings striking out four, walking
two and allowing no Apalachicola

pitched two-thirds of the third in-
ning, striking out two, walking six
batters and allowing four runs.
Bart Lowry was brought to
the mound in relief to close out,
the third. Lowry walked the first
two batters in the fourth, but
both were cleaned off the bases
with the next slap of the ball. The
following batter hit an Infield fly

If you're looking for a villain

problems start with "plaque".
Plaque is the primary cause of
tooth 'decay and periodontal
(gum) disease.
Plaque, is a soft, sticky,
colorless film of bacteria that is
constantly forming on your teeth.
The bacteria are most harmful
when they become organized into
colonies about every 24 hours.
When you eat sugar, it combines
with the plaque and produces
acids which attack, the tooth
enamel. The sticky plaque holds
these acids on the teeth,
'prolonging the attack and,

If not treated, healthy teeth may
become loose and may be lost. '
You can prevent dental
disease by controlling plaque.

Ulee's Gold

Beekeepers Hope For Sweet Rewards Each Year From River Swamp

By Apalachicola Times
Staff Reporter Ward Gros
Despite, the setbacks of a
meager tupelo honey harvest lo-
cal beekeepers are optimistic
about the golden crop's future.
Ulee's Gold, a movie featuring
a beekeeper in the Apalachicola
River Valley, could bring sweet re-m
wards from a crop already in de-
mand. Tupelo honey is produced
from the tupelo gum tree that
grows along the Chipola and Apa-
lachicola rivers of northwest, Flor-
ida. Here in the river swamps.
this honey is produced in a
unique fashion. During April and
May,' bees are placed on elevated
platforms along the river's edge;
and they fan out through the sur-
rounding tupelo blossoms, then
return with top grade honey. This
river valley is the only place In
the world where tupelo honey is
commercially produced.Gly

toll on honey harvests. Bee
"We've had better harvests the
than we've had this year," said
Ben Lanier. whvllose family has toui
been in dte honey business over ers
100 years.,

the season more than anything. onl
else, said Lanier. Honey is like.
most other crops in that respect.
This year we had a long win-
ter," said beekeeper George Wat-
kins, who lives in Apalachicola.
-The cold weather held the sea-
son off."
The tupelo honey season
started around April 28 and got
over quicker than usual, Watkins
said. It lasted 12 to 15 days when
It could have lasted 20 to 21
"I1 believe that hot weather
came and ended it quick," he
said. "It was a dry season, that
makes a better quality honey.
There was no rain. It just didn't
last as long as it could."
Not only do beekeepers cope
with the elements, they also con-
tend with nature's number one
honey lover-bears. Some folks in
Franklin County say you can tell
how good a honey season you'll
have by the.number of da o
for bear hunting.
S The bears 'cause more dam-
age than anything else," Watklns
said. "The only thing you can do
to tight off'bears is to put up a
portable electric fence around the
hives. If a bear comes, you call
DEP (Department of Enviroimen-
tal "Protecuon). an agent comes
out and tags him, and the bear
comes back."
Recent environmental legisla-
tion protecting Florida's black
bear includes the state's pur-
chase of Tate's Hell, more than
40,000 acres of swamp land
north of Apalachicola Bay.
"The bears caused me $300
to $400 worth of damage." Wat-
kins said. "When they come out
of hibernation, everybody gets hit.
They short out the fence, push It
over, and rip up the sides of the
beehivel box and eat it. They

Although this year's season
was less productive than previous
seasons, local beekeepers say de-

'The bulk honey price has
nearly doubled in the last two
years," Watkins said. "It has gone
from 42 cents [per pound] to 78
cents Iper pound] and now it's al-
most 80 cents. The prices have
gone up ever since."

FMP Answers Common Questions About "Red Tide" Effects On

The Florida Marine Patrol
sent the following advisory on
questions concerning the red tide:
*What s a Florida red tide?
A higher' than normal concentra-
tion of a microscopic algae called
Gymnodinrum brave. This organ-
ism produces a toxin that affects
the central nervous system of fish;
such that they're paralyzed and
can't breathe. At high concentra-
tions, the organism may produce
a discoloration of the water. "Red
'tides" are often referred to as

*Is it okay to eat fish,
crabs, and shrimp? Yes, because
, the toxin is not absorbed in the
fleshy tissue of these animals.
However, regardless of whether a
red tide is -in the area, eating dis-
tressed or dead fish is discou-
raged because the cause of death
is unknown-it could be some-
thing unrelated to red tide..
*Is is okay to eat shellfish?
If referring to bivalve mollusks,
then "no" if a shellfish harvesting
bah is in effect. However, other
animals commonly called shell-
fish (eg., crabs, shrimp, lobsters)

how concentrated the organism is

Getting A Head Start On A Career
In a world that is extremely competitive, it is more important
than ever for young people to develop solid academic skills so
that they are prepared for their future. All students should
have a challenging curriculum, infused with applications from
real workplaces, that keeps open the options of going on to a
four-year college, a technical or community college, a training
program, or a job.
It is important that each high school student have a "gameplan"
which includes the academic and technical skills that are need-
ed for success after high school, be that in college or in the
workplace. This program of study should be developed at the
beginning of the ninth grade and adjusted as needed.
Gulf County, in conjunction with Bay and Franklin counties,
has received a planning grant of $150,000 from the Department
of Education. This grant is to assist in the development of a sys-
tem that will help our students to have the tools, such as' a pro-
gram of study, needed to make a smooth transition from school
to an eventual career. Our support of this effort is essential to
insuring a bright and promising future for all of our students.

"But Not Smartest
Bears In The Woods"
Now that it's hurricane sea-
son I must ask one thing. No, I
insist. Save your confessions for
the priest. Don't tell your wife.
God is more likely to let you off
with your "hide" intact.
Family folklore had it that my
uncle was terrified of storms. So
much -, s' that he would start
wringing his hands and pacing at
the mention of the word, So great
was his terror that as the winds
picked up, so did his whining. Till
finally he began to divulge the se-
crets of his soul to that one most
unforgiving of sources--his wife.
Now don't get me wrong. It's
important to be honest in mar-
riage. I think they mention it
somewhere in the vows. If they
S'don't, then the boy scout motto
should cover it. But the Boy:
Scouts never met my Aunt Jillian.
Their motto "Be Prepared" didn't
cover her. Put her up next to Hur-
ricane Opal and,the Feds would
have given my uncle-not the fine
people of Florida-disaster relief..
It was his 'own fault, you see.
He married her. No one said he
had to. But 'like fine wine, my
Aunt Jillian was real sweet back
then. She hadn't had time to fer-
ment. Living with -my uncle took
care of that. She was a lovin'
woman if you had "busted" your
knee for the sixth time'that week.
But, if you were a husband who
liked to "honky-tonk", she was
the meanest 98 pounds of unre-
lenting wrath that youever want-,
ed to meet.
My uncle kept forgetting that.
So here would come a storm.
not just your standard Alabama,
late afternoon, cut-off-the-cable-
and-make-people-cuss storm. He
could handle those kind. He'd
crawl out from under the bed
when it was over, just fine, you
understand. I'm talking hurri-
cane. Like Eloise, back in the
I'll never. forget it. As Eloise
headed straight for us, my uncle"
got to pacing and a' praying. And
if he'd stopped right there, I think
he would have been just fine. You'
see, I think God is merciful and
very forgiving. But not my Aunt
Jullian. She misinterpreted that
Bible verse, "Vengeance is mine,
saith the Lord." Vengeance may
have well belonged ,to the good
Lord, but Jillian didn't mind bor-
rowing it from Him occasionally.
So, as the flood waters from
the nearby river rose, so did my
uncle's anxiety. He was well past
hiding under the 'bed at this
point. He was into ripe hysteria.'
:Now, it seems fitting that I
should, at this point, give you
some insight on my mother's side
of the family. Ours was the lowest
elevation house of the whole fami-
ly. It was surrounded on at least
two sides by a river and a creek
that frequently flooded. Another
uncle had a house that was'high
and dry where no river would
reach. Yet, when the word "hurri-
cane" was said, the whole darn
bunch congregated at our house.
I didn't get it. Did they think the
family that drowns together,
stays together?
But you can imagine. 'Bout
20 relatives, three or four of them

ing the babies), one having vi-

sons, and another. speaking in
tongues (all well in its place, but
not in the middle of a category
four hurricane), and my uncle
and aunt.
'Bout the time the water
came up in our backyard, here
came his confession. And man,
he was thorough. He gave names,
dates, places, addresses, and so-
cial security numbers. He gave
details we never wanted to hear.
And he stored up wrath for him-
self even till the seventh genera-
tion, if you know what I mean.
I told this story to a buddy of
mine. He grinned and said, "He


wasn't the smartest bear in the
woods." Well, in this age of ultra
political correctness, perhaps we
need to rephrase that. I'm afraid
that the "Smart Bears in the -

league might get riled if we don't.
Let's try, "Not the smartest crea-

ture in the whole cosmos." That

But to be kind. He was a

mistake was that next to the fury

James E. "Jamie" Lester
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 trying to use what
I have learned, as well as, my work experience to help and
work for the people.
SSince 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. I also James E. "Jamie" Lester, BoJohn
worked 2.5 years at the Bay County Property Appraiser's Lester and Trey 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 gave 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 thebeautiful 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
Sincerely Your Friend,

Jamie Lester

S"My son will work hard for the people in Gulf County, if given the chance.
BoJohn Lester

"His drive and determination to work hard and help people is evident in his
character and personality"
Mitch Burke

"It's not the beautiful rivers, lakes, or beaches that make Gulf County so great,
it's the people."

Sincere Thanks
Pauline Mouchette moved to
Port St. Joe in March of 1959. As
most of you know she was a
beautiful, happy, generous and
hard-working ,Christian. She
cared very much for this commu-
nity and its citizens. Unfortunate-
ly, she was ill for the last five
years of her life before her death
on June 1.
We want to sincerely thank
the staff of Bay St. Joseph Care
Center for their concern and love.
Her last days were spent in
Gulf Pines Hospital in a hospice
setting which is coordinated with
the Bay Medical Center Hospice.
The love, compassion, and care
we all received was above and be-
y6nd the call of duty. The nursing
staff, every one of them to a per-
son, is so very special to us. The
whole staff at Gulf Pines could
not have been more caring and

Time and

As mortals we have a
time on this earth. In
Psalms 90:10 it suggests
we have an average of 70
years of life, some more
and some less. As a Chris-
h tian, God through Jesus
Christ promises us eternity

with Him.
Life has both quantity and quality. When we
are young time seems to pass slowly. As we get
older time seems to pass more quickly. In 2 Pe-
ter 3:98 we find, "But do not ignore this one
fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a
thousand years, and a thousand years as one
As mortals on this earth we have only one
way of judging time. God, as our creator, sets
limits for our mortal life. Jesus is our "door to

eternity." Enjoy life and
of God.

Baxter, Rev. Oliver Taylor, and
Rev. Johnny McCurdy.
There are so many wonderful
people, we can't possibly name
every one.,
Thanks so much for the flow-,
ers, contributions, food and beau-
tiful cards and notes. These ex-
pressions of love just prove what

Dear Friends
Words can never express the
love and gratitude my heart feels ,
toward you. The support .and4
monetary gifts you bestowed
upon me were greatly appreciat-
ed. I know that it was 'only
through the love of Christ in your
hearts that you gave so freely.
God will truly bless you in many

believe in the promises

So many times in our lives we
often wonder why we are tried
ahd tested, but our faith in God
above assures us that he will
surely take care of us. I can stand
on his promise: Philippians 4:19,
"But my God shall supply all your
need according to his riches in
glory by Christ Jesus."
In Christian Love, God Bless You,

Dear Counselor:
For years I have gotten angry
about circumstances involving
situations and people. I recently
talked to several people in; my
church and they tell me to
"Forgive and Forget" or "Be angry
and sin not". I've tried this but it,
doesn't seem to resolve the con-
flicts that seem to go on inside.
Tired and Perplexed in the.
Dear Perplexed,
Your friends at church have
the right idea but it sounds as if,
you need some help with how to'.
accomplish what they are advis-'
Anger can be broken down
into four parts; the situation, your
thoughts about the situation, the
emotional. response, and your
behavioral reaction. Your behavior
is the easiest of these to control i
and. the component that can
either get you into trouble or I
resolve the situation that was
involved in your anger. "Sinning
Not" is an appeal to keep control !
of your behavior. Forgiving and
forgetting is the' final goal, in
resolving conflicts that cause
anger., However; resolving emo-"
tionally charged conflicts is not
easy. It Involves first getting in
touch with the second compo-
nent, your thoughts. .
Talking to someone you trust

can help you' to identify your
thoughts, perceptions, and expec-
tations. It can help you determine
if they are realistic and give you
an outlet for expressing why you
ate angry. Talking to someone can
then .help you brainstorm ways to
resolve the conflicts that make.
you angry.,
In the meantime, "Sin Not"
when you get angry, and avoid
hurting someone else or yourself.
In the heat of the conflict, delay
your reaction until you can cool
off, take a walk to expel excess
energy, and return to the problem
with the intent to resolve it.
There are many other tech-
niques that can be useful in con-
trolling your anger. Counseling
can help attack all four compo-
nents of anger and give you some
skills in managing it. You may
contact Gulf County Guidance
Clinic at 227-1145 if you feel you
can benefit from counseling.

3600 Communications

So that's what 360 Communications does.

That's right. 360 Communications is indeed a cellular service company.
While the name is new, we're not, of course. Thanks to growth and experience, we're
no longer a part of Sprint. We're an independent, publicly-traded company with a national
presence and 1.7 million customers. We have all the resources we had before, and then
some. More importantly, our focus has not changed. We still want to make your life easier
and simpler through better, more convenient communications.
Why the name "3606 Communications," you ask? To us, it's very descriptive of the fact
that our company is built around you from technology to customer service. It reflects
our network's ability to surround you and support you wherever you go. And that we'll
continue to serve you with the most innovative telecommunications services anywhere.
Unsurpassed cellular communications. That's what we do. With an exclamation.
