telro said it was evident Luttrell
was dead. so he rushed to sum-
mon aid to remove his body from
the water." Hersey said he and
Officer William Sanders answered
the call for help.
When Hersey and Sanders ar-
rived on the scene, the South
Gulf County Ambulance was al-
ready there, with EMTs John
Ford and Scott Baker already at-
tempting to retrieve Luttrell's


dence of foul play Luttrell is sus-
pected to have died from natural
causes, while fishing, and toppled
over into the water. His fishing
tackle was on the dock near
where he was found.
The police lieutenant said
Monteiro gave information that he
had passed by the spot about
7:30 a.m., and Luttrell wasn't
there. As he was leaving the dock
area, about two hours later, he
was found in the water.


On Monday, July 29th, Gulf
bounty Judge Bob Moore granted
. motion to dismiss charges
against t Clinton Lamar Moore (no
elation) for fishing with an illegal
pet.
The case began on May 22 of
is year when Florida Marine
patroll officer Mike Nobles issued
oore a citation for mullet fishing
vith a net containing more than
00OO square feet, in violation of the
,constitutional net ban amend-


ment.
According to Clint Moore and
his attorney, Pat Floyd, he
attached (to his otherwise legal
seine net) approximately 260' of
plastic shade material-130 foot
to each side of the net. Moore said
he and several other local fisher-
men had come up with the idea of
using the shade material while
discussing how they might con-
tinue to make a living in the fish-
ing industry.


This photo is a close-up view of the shade material [left]
sewn to the legal net material [right] being used when the
Florida Marine Patrol arrested Clinton Moore for fishing
with an illegal net.


Judge Moore pointed out in
his order that Clint Moore was
aware the Department of
Environmental Protection had
approved the use of solid plastic
sheets or tarpaulin. to be used in
conjunction with legal nets. But,
what separates the shade materi-
al from tarpaulin is small slots
cut into it to allow light to pene-
trate.
During court proceedings on
July Ist, the state agreed that the
slots in the shade material
allowed Water to pass through
when pulled in the water, which
made it a net.
Floyd countered the state's
claim, demonstrating that by
their definition almost anything
could be construed to be a net-
even women's pantyhose will
allow water to pass through them.
Furthermore he stressed that
DEP guidelines didn't reflect the
wording nor intent of the net ban
amendment which Florida voters
approved.
After oral arguments, testi-
mony and exhibits were presented
by both parties, Judge Moore
instructed them to submit written
arguments on the motion, after
which he would make his ruling /.
on the motion to dismiss.
Shade Material No Net.
Judge Moore ruled that nei-
ther tarpaulin nor shade material
was net, as defined by the consti-
tutional provision. "These materi-
als do not ensnare, entangle, nor
c;tch saltwater finflsh, shellfish
or other marine animals. Further.
these materials do not contain a
*mesh area', as defined in the con-
stitutional provision."
During discussion with The
Star Judge Moore credited fisher-
men with "Just using good imagi-
nation and Ingenuity to develop
Innovative methods to continue
fishing within the limits of the net
ban amendment."
Historically, shade material
has been used in the agricultural
'industry to cover light sensitive
vegetation. Commonly called

Work Started On Reid Avenue Project


Robert E. Williams

Bob Williams
Announces For
Sheriff's Race
Today Robert E. "Bob"
S Williams of Port St. Joe
announced his candidacy for the
office of Sheriff of Gulf County on
the. Republican ticket. Bob has
been a resident of Gulf County for
the past twelve years. He just
retired after a 27-year career in
law enforcement which included
service as a deputy sheriff in
Florida, state law enforcement
officer in Florida, an Alaskan
state trooper, and the past 20
years as a federal agent.
Bob's career as a federal
agent has taken him all over the
country. From 1981 to 1985 Bob
was the special agent in charge of
a federal law enforcement pro-
gram based in Denver, Colorado.
Within his agency, he had the
responsibility for management
and directing all law enforcement
activities in the states of Colorado
and Kansas.
Bob and Shawnee, his wife of
25 years, are third generation
Floridians and they wanted their
boys to grow up in a small town in
Florida, like they did. The
Williams really believe the old
adage that "It takes the whole
community to raise a child," so
when the opportunity arose, they
moved to Northwest Florida.
After carefully looking the

Actual hands on work got un-
derway on the downtown renova-
tion and beautification project for
Reid Avenue on Thursday morn-
ing .of last week. Crews from
Southern Earth Sciences of Pana-,


ma City were in town taking core
samples of the street for the de-
sign engineers, Preble-Rish Con-
sulting Engineers of Port St. Joe,
who are working on the specifica-'
tions and designs for the project.


Absentee Ballots

Now Available

At Courthouse
Absentee ballots are now available in the Supervisor
of Elections office, according to Lynn Burge, Deputy Su-
pervisor. Ballots are available for all voters who will be
out of town or otherwise unable to get to their respective
polling place on election day, September 3, due to ill-
ness, hospitalization, or are physically incapacitated. .
Ms. Burge said there are certain requirements which
must be met in order to be able to secure an absentee
ballot. If you are planning on being out of town on elec-
tion day, you may come to the Supervisor's office in per-
son at any time prior to election day and cast a ballot. If
you desire to secure a ballot for an incapacitated mem-
ber of the family, you may do so, but if you desire to se-
cure a ballot for an incapacitated friend, you must
present, in writing, an affidavit form, which is available
at the Supervisor's office, from the person who wishes to
vote, giving you authority to secure their ballot for
them. A maximum of two ballots may be secured in this
manner by any one person.
Registered voters may request an absentee ballot by
mail if they had rather cast their vote in that manner.
The deadline for securing an absentee ballot is the
last day of business in the week prior to election day,
Friday, August 30, at 5:00 p.m. eastern time. Absentees
may be returned up to 7:00 p.m., eastern time, on Tues-
day, September 3.
MONDAY IS REGISTRATION DEADLINE
Monday, August 5, 5:00 p.m. is the deadline for regis-
tration to vote in the first primary election, to be held
Tuesday, September 3, according to Burge.


Bill Kennedy, lead engineer
on the project told The Star that
the firm is now in the process of
preparing the construction design
and specifications, with bids to go
out on the actual construction
work in November. Construction
work is expected to begin in early
January and be completed by
spring.
The project will include total
, renovation from storefront to
storefront on Reid .Avenue from
First to Fifth Street including new
' sidewalks and a new design for
proper drainage, which has dealt
-a few merchants fits over the.
years.
Also, a part of the project is
the construction of new sidewalks
on Fourth, Third and Second
Streets from Reid back to the al-
leyway in both directions.
Decorative' islands will be
placed at each intersection. The
street will have underground util-
ities.
The theme of the street will
be on the order of a pedestrian
mall with built in street crossings
to facilitate easier traffic and saf-
er pedestrian flow.
The entire length of the street
will be interspersed with decora-
tive street lamps, sidewalks, dec-
orative plant islands and gener-
ous placements of benches,
making the street pedestrian
friendly. Off-street parking is in
the plans also, but the amount fi-
nally provided depends on just
how far the construction money
goes, after bids are -received.
The project has been in
progress ever since it was initiat-
ed by the Port St. Joe Merchants
Association nearly eight years
ago. Preliminary plans, design
and surveys were made, on re-
quest of the Association, by the
architecture and design depart-
ment of the University of Florida.

from Southern Earth Sciences as he takes core samples from

A Raw Deal

Commission Deserved Notification Of

Intent By State, Don't You Think?

IT'S OUR HOPE THAT the Gulf County Commission will fol-
low up closely and look at every aspect of the Health Depart-
ment's sudden release of Dr. Jorge San Pedro by the state HRS
chief doctor who has jurisdiction over such matters. Certainly it
was an uncalled for action in that the county was given no ad-
vance notice or warning that the action was coming.
No official in Gulf County knows why the action was taken.
What was the reason? Who is behind the action? Maybe if we
knew the answer to this last question, we would know why the
action was taken.
WE HAVE PERSONALLY known Dr. San Pedro for many
years ever since he came to Port St. Joe and more than ade-
quately filled a medical void left in our community by the depar-
ture of other doctors to more lucrative positions elsewhere. Dur-
ing those years he has built a home here, established, operated
and retired from a popular medical practice, again filling a void
left by the accidental death of.another doctor.
Dr. San Pedro has served the vital needs of our community-
and did it well, we might add-when there was nowhere we
could turn. Granted he had his shortcomings. He was trained as
a surgeon, not as a diagnostic doctor and he told you that. going
in. However, the good doctor proved time after time that he was,
indeed, more, than adequate as a diagnostic doctor, to go along
with his abilities as a surgeon.,
DR. SAN PEDRO put his patients at ease when he treated
them. This is a very vital part of practicing medicine. He is a
good citizen in the community which he has adopted and has, in
turn, adopted him. Knowing Port St. Joe, we feel the community
will stand nearly 1000%o behind him in this unwarranted misfor-
tune which has been foisted on him.
We won't say Dr. San Pedro hasn't made any mistakes. We
wouldn't say that about the best specialist one can think of. We
suspect even the renowned Dr. Michael DeBakey of Houston,
Texas, has made mistakes, ,mistaken diagnosis, mistaken judge-
ment in his extensive surgical practice. It goes with the territory.
Doctors PRACTICE medicine. They certainly don't need some lay-
, man, with an axe to grind, leaning over their shoulders while
they sew up a cut or check our vitals.
USE YOUR POWER to right this wrong, Gulf County Com-
missioners. Use it to correct this wrong done against the people
of Port St. Joe and Dr. Jorge San Pedro. Show him he didn't
make a mistake in leaving his native Cuba for the United States
and freedom from tyranny those many, many years ago.



Go- Getters
FOR THE FIRST TIME since Billy Joe Rish served as Repre-
sentative to the State Legislature, we have a real opportunity to
have that representative come from Port St. Joe and Gulf
County. It seems like it has been a long time since we had such
a personal touch with the legislature, but it hasn't been all that
long-either. Rish made the decision then, that Robert Trammell
made last month. He decided he was tired of a meeting every
night and every day and decided it was time to hang it up.
The constant meetings and trying to remember where you
are to go next or where you are now begins to get to you. It's just
as bad, until you get accustomed to the slackened pace, after
you make the choice to slow down, or have It made for you.
THERE WAS A TIME when every county in Florida had their
own personal representative in the Legislature. Gulf was assured
of a voice in Tallahassee in those days. The last one of that spe-
cial breed was Ben C. Williams, the father of the present candi-
date for sheriff [along with four other candidates] Jimmy Wil-
liams.
Only the state senators'were elected in districts., Wehad an
agreement with the other three counties in our district, which
gave us an occasional senator, as well as a representative, in
Tallahassee every so often. We were in a district with Bay, Wash-
ington and Calhoun counties and alternated the senate seat be-
tween: the four counties. We were riding high, then.
WHICHEVER OF OUR YOUNG men happens to. get elected
to state government, and we are confident one of them will, we
are expecting big things out of them, not only for Gulf county,
but for the gaggle of other counties in the district.
They are both go-getters, of the type we need in government,
national, state or local.


Hunker Down with Kes ibyKesleyCobert,



Dean Of The Olympics


The Olympics can stir some
wonderful memories. You take
the hammer throw for instance-
Uncle Womack taught us the
inns and outs of that one years
ago. We were framing in the raft-
ers on Anse Treadaway's new
barn when Womack struck a
glancing blow that slid off the nail
and near 'bout smashed flat the
end of the first finger on his left
hand. Uncle Womack threw the
hammer even before he yelled. It
cleared the two story Treadaway
house, flew across Highway 22
and barely missed a prized Domi-
nicker in Prisilla Hancock's front
yard.
Naturally, we got home that
evening, hustled out to 'the back
of our own barn and went to.
practicing our hammer throwing.
We couldn't get it over the back
pig pent "That's terrible." :David-
moaned as his hammer found ter-
ra firma even before his yell end-
ed .. *k s
"Uncle Womack held his


hammer way down on the end."
Leon explained. "He didn't choke
up on It like we're doing."
I tried holding it "way down
on the end"-- couldn't lift the
blooming things
By 1960 my Aunt Adell
Owned a T.V. Me and Leon and
David Mark decided she was "our
favorite" and took. to spending
lots of time over at her house. It
snowed a lot in Rome that year
but nobody at the Olympics
seemed to notice. We were glued
to that set when this big guy
named Al came out to throw the
hammer for America. You talk
about being surprised-we had
no idea "throwing a hammer" was
a sport. "Course, Al didn't do it
quite like Uncle Womack. He had
a rope tied to the end of his ham-
mer so he was way past "down on
the end." And he got a running
start, twirled around about eight
times and catapulted-more than
threw-that hammer. across that
Roman cow pasture.
Leon scoffed when they an-.
nounced it was a new world
record. "Let's see big Al make that
throw with no warm up, strad-
dling two rafters and wearing
overalls"
"It still went a long way, I
can't tell exactly how far because


of the snow. he might 'a beat Un-
cle Wo-1-
"No way." Leon didn't let me
finish, "If they could 'step It off in
one afternoon-It wasn't as long
as Uncle Womack'sl"
We were also pretty interest-
ed in the discus competition that
year,, You see, we'd been practUc-
ing on that one for years. Of.
course, we'd never seen a real
discus, but we'd been experi-
menting with different hubcaps
'-for a while'. A '56 Chevy had
those small, moon shaped hub-
caps that were heavy and easy to
throw, but they wouldn't sail
,worth a hoot And, if you didn't
let it go just right-with a little
upward lift-they'd just nose dive
right over into the ground. The
'55, '56, and '57 Fords were even,
worse, they had too big a lip.
Finally, in 1959, Ford came
out with that big. round, flat hub-
cap that would sail forever. It's
still the best discus ever! It did'
have one minor drawback-It was
fastened to the wheel with a ser-
rated edge You would go home
the winner . but you'd be
bleeding from every finger on
your throwing hand. : ,
We also discovered a -new
event that year-pole vaulting.
We climbed up twvo fairly straight


pines Daddy probably wasn't go-
ing to use, "topped" about twelve
feet out of them, trimmed off a
few branches and went looking
for something to vault I don't
know how or why we settled on
that old Farmall tractor. I busted
my kneecap wide open and de-
smoke stacked that thing'on my
first jump. Leon caught a foot in
the steering wheel, nose-dived
onto the back axle, did a com-
plete somersault, bounced: off
that big back wheel and landed
on both feet, right rnext to the
PTO. Dave Mark gave him a "9.6".
I couldn't go quite that'high-his
legs separated just a little when
he hit that axle.
I don't think pole vaulting will
ever catch on with country folks.
'You put a stick in our hands and
pretty soon we're going to be hit-
ting somebody with it. We quickly
tired of vaulting, but we fought
each other all afternoon ,with
those two poles.
" Dean Knox came by, saw
, what we were doing 'and com-
menced telling us about this
Ivanhoe character who lived a
Long time ago-"He'd grab a pole
like that, jump on his horse and
ride right into another fellow with

Dreams


Ability Doesn't Exempt One From


THE OLYMPIC GAMES are
the things to see and talk about
at the present' time. They are pro-
viding plenty of things to see and
plenty to talk about from what I
have been able to observe on TV.
read about, and hear discussed
at places where this type of idle
conversation is carried on.
Everything is being discussed
fiom the qualifications of Ire-
land's Michelle Smith, how she
became such a fast swimmer in
such a short time; to the ridicu-
lous match-up between America's
'dream team" and the world's so-
called amateurs; to Kerri Strug,
her injury and the manner in
which she accepted her gold med-
.a l. .
One newspaper article had
her coach and NBC taking advan-
tage of the injury to aggrandize
themselves, but I fail to' see how
they could know she would be-
come injured and so were able, to
react in such a short- period of
time.


BUT, ENOUGH OF, that. Did
you, like me, let your lower jaw go
slack in amazement at the penal-
ty Michael Irvin of the Dallas
Cowboys had assessed against
him?
I thought that was ludicrous,
considering the many who are
currently spending time in the
penitentiaries of the land for vio-
lation of just one facet of what Ir-
vin was charged with.
Talk about your unfair treat-
ment!
The claimed different stan-
dard of sentencing for Blacks and
Whites is small stuff considering
the difference in degree of sen-


tencing between Irvin and just,
plain old John Doe who is picked
up with a couple of marijuana
cigarettes in his or her possession'
.. or maybe a "rock" or two of
crack cocaine. Irvin was reported
to have a "rock" in his possession
as big as a golf ball! He, received&
probation.

UNTIL THE owner of the
Cowboys slapped his penalty
against Irvin.
Five games of being suspend-
ed! That amounts to over a half'
million dollars Irvin won't make.
That's pretty stiff, but in our.
opinion, still not stiff enough.


I feel he should be kicked out
of professional football.
But, then, I have felt the
same about other professional
athletes who have been a dis-
grace and embarrassment to their
particular sport. There are the'
likes of Daryl Strawberry, Steve
Howe, and of course, let's not
overlook Dennis Rodman, Mickey
Mantle or Babe Ruth. They are
all, or were, top notch athletes as
well as personal bums. There are
others too numerous to mention
them all. Their conduct should
not be condoned.
,Being paid the big bucks
should carry with the paycheck
the understanding that the ath-
lete is to be an example of clean
living, gentlemanly deportment
and the epitome of good sports-
manship. It should go with the
territory. If an athlete isn't willing
to give up his questionable pleas-
ures, then pass the salary to
someone else who is willing.
SOMEHOW, WE FEEL as if,


properBR
Irvin would still be living his life
of debauchery for everyone to see,
if he hadn't had his.hand called
on it. He more or less thumbed
his nose at convention and a civ-
ilized style of life when he made
his appearance in court, He
wasn't sorry for the action, from
all appearances. He was just sor-
ry that he got caught!
It wasn't 'the act which
prompted Jerry Jones, the Cow-
boys owner, to suspend Irvin; it
was the public reaction to Irvin's
penalty and the statements
against his 'Cowboys which
prompted his move' at suspen-
sion. When people began to'talk
about no longer attending Cow-
boy games due to general disgust
with the actions by the members,
Jones could mentally, see the im-
plication, there. It was to be
many dollars out of his pocket

BOTH THE contriteness of Ir-
vin and the sudden sense of what
is acceptable behavior by Jones
have been motivated by'the shriv-


behavior
selling up of that income they have
become so accustomed to.
If either had been truly re-
pentant, we would have heard a
resignation from the team coming
from Irvin and a deluge of pink
slips coming from Jones, aimed.
at the others on his team who
were doing the same things as Ir-
vin and just failed to get charged
by authorities.
If It is common knowledge
t enough to make the nation's
newspapers and IV gawk shows,
it should be apparent to Jones
that everything isn't football in
the Cowboy camp.
The professional sports are
all on shaky ground,, from the
spectator's viewpoint, and should
clean up their individual acts or
face a real boycott from the pub-
lic. A father and. mother aren't
real anxious for their children to
see someone treated as a hero
who the entire nation knows acts
like a scumbag! Somehow one
lifestyle doesn't match the other.
Even kids know that.

I read with interest your story

Your report was very clear
Ld precise, including your last
ntence: "No injuries were re-

Tarps which are not porous

and equipment to handle in the

Pleased with Ruling
When contacted by The Star,
attorney Pat Floyd said he was
pleased with the court's decision.
"It recognizes the net ban amend-
ment is limited by the words
included in it, and the Marine
Fisheries and Florida Marine
Patrol are restricted to interpret
those words and their intent as
they are, without expanding the
effects of the constitutional
amendment." he said.
When questioned concerning
the possibility of the state appeal-
ing Judge Moore's decision, Floyd
said he hoped they would look at
It, and recognize the decision as a
common sense ruling and not use
taxpayers' money. _,nor ._Clint

the home of Larry Hagen, 105
Lucia Drive at Beacon Hill,
Saturday morning.
The Hagens were not at home
when the fire occurred. A neigh-
bor reported the blaze when they
observed the fire burning within
the structure.
Units of the Mexico Beach,
Highland View and St. JoedBeach
fire departments responded to the
call and extinguished the blaze.
Undertow Grabs Two Visitors.
Also Saturday morning, the
sheriffs office received a distress
call from the Cape reporting that
two people were caught up in the
undertow.
An unidentified visitor had
gotten into the undertow currents
and was pulled out into the deep-
er waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
One of the individual's relatives, a
lifeguard, swam out to the assist
him and was also pulled out by
the currents. Both people were
able to safely swim back to shore
after being released from the
undertow.
SThe Gulf County Sheriffs-


office cautions swimmers to be
aware of the undertow and the
danger of getting caught up in it,
especially during times of rough
seas.

area over, they chose Port St. Joe
as the place to settle and raise
their children. Both of their sons,
Bobby and Chris, graduated from
high school in Port St. Joe. Bobby
recently graduated from the
Un iversi ty of Wyoming and is cur-
rently pursuing a master's degree
in International Relations. Chris
attended Georgia Southern
-University and is planning to join
the U.S. military.
Bob feels very strongly that
the office of sheriff is one of the
most critical, if not the most criU-
cal, office in local government.
The sheriff, besides being respon-
sible for a multitude of public
safety and legal issues, has a
direct effect on the daily quality of.
life of all citizens of the county.
Most importantly, the beliefs
and philosophies of the sheriff
and his entire department must
* reflect the values, morality and
traditions of the community as a
whole. It must be service oriented
with a special focus on programs
for our senior citizens and our
" youth.
Bob` stated, "We' must lead by
example. As a community we
must provide leadership and
guidance to help make productive
citizens out of our young people.
They are. the future of Gulf
County and our country. We must
respect and care for our elderly
citizens. They have given us our
start in life, developed our charac-
ter and taught us our morals and
principles. They deserves our
best."
Bob plans to implement a
"Community Oriented Policing
Program" with deputies.responsi-
ble for a particular community.
Under this type of program, the


deputy will become familiar with
the particular needs of the citi-
zens on his or her beat and as .l*
such will be better able to
respond when- needed. Other
communities that have initiated
this system have experienced a
reduction in crime, coupled with
:an increase In service to the com-7
munity as a whole.
Increased citizen Involvement
in .the sheriffs department will
also be part of Bob's programs. He
is planning to develop and imple-
ment a Citizen Community Watch
network, enhance the existent
Reserve and Auxiliary Deputy
programs with special emphasis
on Search and Rescue. Most
Importantly. Bob is planning to
create a Citizen Advisory Panel to
review the Department's pro-
grams semi-annually, and advise
the sheriff on their effectiveness.
Bob stated. "Simply put, this
campaign is about honesty.
integrity, credibility and good old
Gulf County principles. Your
sheriff must possess courage,
sound judgement. proven man-
agement.,, and, leadership skills,
and a genuine passion to serve
the citizens of Gulf County.
Whomever you elect Is going to
have a major impact on the daily
lives of the citizens of Gulf County
into the 21st century. I feel that I
possess these skills and I know
that I have the passion to serve
you." *
Bob says he is looking for-
ward to visiting with each citizen
of Gulf County and is available to
answer your questions. Please feel

that you may have. His home tele-

Bloqk Scheduling New At High Schools


Following almost two years of
study and planning, Gulf
County's high schools are prepar-
ing to open the 1996-97 school
year on Monday, August 12, oper-
ating on a 4 x 4 block scheduling.
In essence, this means that a
student takes four courses each
term with classes meeting for
ninety (90) minutes each day.
Four full-year courses will be
completed before Christmas ,
break, and four more courses are
completed prior to the end of the.
school year in late May.
Over a four-year period, stu-
dents may earn up to 32 credits,


rather than the 24 credits earned
under the prior six-period school
day. This will provide students an
opportunity to take more academ-
ic courses and experience a
greater variety of vocational and
elective classes. It is also a part of
an ongoing effort to raise- educa-
tional standards for all students.
In terms of individual student
schedules, the goal is for each
student to have two academic and
two elective courses each term.
Much work has gone into building
a master schedule that will serve
the needs of Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka High School's stu-

The Weekly
Fishing Report
Bottom fishing for the first
part of the week, July 21-28, was
slow due to bad weather.
However, the last three days were
great! Grouper and snapper have
been biting good on hunk bait
.(Spanish mackerel, northern
mackerel) and live bait.
We are having good success
,on flat lines while were are hold-
ing up bottom fishing using bare
cigar minnows.
. A good safety tip to remember
if you happen to get caught in a
squall is to let your antennas
down and turn off all electronics.

Protecting


Enamel


Enamel is the hard, trans-
lucent substance that covers
the crown of the tooth (the part
that extends above the, jaw-
bone), It is the part of the teeth
that you show when you smile,,
or snarl. It can be white,,
healthy, and attractive: or it-
can'be stained, pitted with cav-
ities and ugly.
There is, good news' and'
bad news when it comes to en-
amel. The good news is that it
is incredibly hard. Only seven.
natural substances, including
diamonds, and carborundum,
are harder than tooth enamel,
and you are not likely to chew
them. It is the hardest tissue
that the body develops. It is,


made up almost entirely of cal-
cium, phosphorus, and a few
other minerals.
The bad news is that once
the enamel has been formed; it
loses all capability of' self-
repair. Since-unlike dentin
and pulp-it is on the outside ;
of the' tooth, it has no, repair
cells and is no longer in con-
tact with the supply of nutrition
from the blood. It resists de-
cay, but., once decayed it can-
not fix itself.

Prepared as a public ser-
vice to promote 'better dental
health. From the office of

Turpentine Stills Backbone of Gulf County

During Early Part of Century McNeill Tells Rotary Club Last Thursday


Life in the Port St. Joe area
was simple in the 1920's to
1930's; according to a description
made by Jim McNeill to the Ro-
tary Club last Thursday.
"I was born in the Indian
Pass area when it was still in Cal-
houn County, in 1924, and re-
member scores making a living
out of the naval stores business
in the late 20's and early 30's,"
McNeill said. "When the paper
mill came to Gulf County, the na-
val stores [turpentine stills] dis-
appeared."
McNeil said his father came
to the county at the early part of
the century and had about
13,000 acres involved in the na-
val stores operation.
"We had over 100 families at
Indian Pass in those days," he
said. "Most of them were black
and worked in the turpentine op-
eration. A man and his son would
be given charge of 10,000 trees.


They would gash the face of the
tree trunks, catching the gum in
small metal cups which they
would attach just below the
gash."
McNeill told his audience that
the worker would empty the cups
every week, bringing the gum to
large woden barrels placed strate-
gically throughout the woods. The
barrels of collected gum would be
picked up periodically and
brought to the still, which was lo-
cated about a quarter mile be-
hind the store at Indian Pass,
near the main road between Port
St. Joe and Apalachicola.
Turpentine would be drawn
off the bottom of the cooking pine
'gum, much like syrup from a
boiling kettle of cane juice, and
rosin would be dipped off the top
in large cups with handles of up
to 10' long. The rosin would be
placed in wooden barrels, which
were made on site. The barrels


were made by the "Cooper" which
was employed by every still solely
to make barrels.
The barrels of rosin were
placed on a boat and taken to Ap-
alachicola to be placed on the
Tarpon, a freight boat which
made regular trips between Car-
rabelle and Pensacola in those.
days, taking the rosin to market.
"Nobody made much money,
then, but the Tarpon would bring
supplies from Pensacola on its re-
turn trip, which were placed in,
the commissary where the eim-,
ployees could buy groceries, or
whatever they needed on credit.
Workers at the still and in the
woods made $5.00 to $6.00 a
week, which was considered a
good wage in the turpentine In-
dustry." the speaker said.
When there just wasn't mon-
ey available, the workers would
be given ,promissory notes or

Twelve aircraft were parked at
the Cape Plantation Costin
Airport, south of Port St. Joe, last,
Saturday morning. The flying
group came from the Experimen-
tal Aircraft Association Chapter
202 of Sandy Creek. Included in
the group were four ultralights.
The rest were standard two and
four place aircraft. Hal Hadaller
gave a mini airshow routine in his
E.A.A. biplane.
Leonard Costin, owner of
Cape Plantation, and John
Cullen, who operates the fixed -
base-operation on the: airport,
hosted the. event. Coffee, soft
drinks and pastries were served
under a cool 20-foot long tempo-
rary patio cover before the month-
ly chapter meeting got under way.
After the meeting, Mr. Cullen
filled the gas tanks for all who
needed fuel at a much reduced
price. Anyone giving rides got
their gas free!
Jerry Fletcher was doing a
Plantation Airpark advertising
layout for Mr. Costin that day and
took his aerial photos from the .
wide open seat of a two place
ultralight flown by Michael.
Hysmith of Panama City Beach. It
was Fletcher's first ride in an
ultralight. "It was better than a
helicopter for taking pictures," he j
said, grinning.
The chapter members took off
for lunch at The Oaks in Panacea,
flying a leisurely picturesque
course up the sandy white beach-
es of Northwest Florida.

"scrip" which they could use at
the commissary.
"Things weren't much better
for the still owner," McNeill said.
"There wasn't much money
changing hands. We operated on
a barter system more so than on
a cash basis. Everyone ate pretty
well and had clothing and a
house to live in, which was about
all you could hope for at that
time."
McNeill told of the one-room
school building which was locat-
ed about a quarter mile east of
their old home place which sat
behind the store, which is still
there today. The old school was
located on.. the old Shell Road,
which was the main thoroughfare
before Highway 98 was paved.
Some 'of the teachers which
taught in the old school are still

Laura at Larg


Aunt Ginny only banished one
child in her Whole time as "Mama"
to our small town. That was a boy
known for telling "whoppers". Now,
don't get me wrong. This kid came
from quality stock. His mama and
daddy were good folks. His mama,
Addle Belle Sorenson, had been a
grade school teacher who retired
when Johnnie Earl (known as J.E.)
was born. He'd been her only child,
and she'd devoted herself to him.
His daddy, Mack Sorenson, was
the owner of the town's surprising-
ly prosperous music supply store,
and a coach for just about every
sport in town.
J.E's daddy, Mack, was as big
as the side of a mountain, and for
years had tortured the town by
playing a saxophone off tune in the
yearly parade. No one but Aunt
Ginny dared to tell him that he
couldn't play, and even she was
hesitant But finally she stepped
up and told him. Mack looked gen-
uinely grateful and no one ever
heard the saxophone again. Folks
talked about giving Aunt Gihny
some token of their esteem for hav-
ing ended their suffering, but no
one could' ever agree on what. As it
always happens, the reward for a
good deed is often a harder chore.
And so it fell to Aunt Ginny, the.

summer Mack and Addie Belle's
son, J.E. turned six, to have him
with the rest of us over at her
house every day.
Aunt Ginny didn't have much
patience with Addle Belle
Sorenson. She considered her a
hand-wringer, and a social pest.
She thought that Addle Belle was
too soft on J.E. and said that trou-
ble was bound to come of it. There
had been rumblings of trouble
since before J.E. had begun cut-
ting teeth, and the rumblings only
grew louder as he aged. And Aunt
Ginny was right about Addle Belle,
in a way. She worried over that
"youngun" until she worried every-
one else. She cried, whined, wrung
her hands, and blamed J.E's grow-
ing personality defects on the
world's influence, other children,
the "growing population" of the
town (10 new families had moved
in in last century), and that great
repository of all convenient blame,
the devil himself.
Now Aunt Ginny didn't like to
hear about demon possession
without direct evidence. And, as
time went on, her lack of patience
with Addle Belle grew evident.
Finally, at one church function
when Addle was squalling about
J.E's latest tantrum, Aunt Ginny

Now, Aunt Ginny, must have
suspicloned something, because
she made a special point of telling
him to leave those grapes alone.
She even gave him the look to make
sure he "got it". Then she went off
to regale our long-suffering pastor
with unsolicited advice about how
to make his sermons more enlight-
ening. She had run off six or seven
pastors this way, but this one had
lasted six months, and was consid-
ered a veteran around our parts.
Soon as her black Buick'
cleared her front driveway, J. E
was in there eating those grapes.
He ate them.so fast. I was sure he
would choke. He was such a
scrawny kid, you thought sure he'd
eventually show a bulge, you
know, like a snake swallowing an
egg, but he didn'L The only tell-tale
sign was a smudge of juice on his
white shirt collar, probably gotten
during his feeding frenzy.
Now, I don't need to tell you,
there wasn't a single wild grape in
that kitchen when Aunt Ginny got'
back. We other children hung
back, wondering what would hap-
pen. We heard a "whoop" sound
and an "Ahhhh, Glory! 1 and we
knew the ,theft had been discov-
ered. Now, it was only a matter of
time.
Aunt Ginny was ingenious
S about the matter however. One by
one, she asked all twenty of us
about the grapes, all the while
holding J.E. on her lap, stroking
his hair, or lightly fingering the -
grape juice spot on his collar.
When the questioning came to me,
she gave -me a wink of her azure
blue aged 'eyes, and suddenly I
knew.
A lesser child would have been
on his knees begging for mercy.
But not J.E. Aunt Ginny tried
every tactic in her extensive book,
but he didn't break. Either he did-
n't have enough sense to know the
peril he was ,it, or like some politi-
clans and their wives, had that
peculiar kind of arrogance which
assumes that people will believe
whatever you tell them, no matter
how many times you change it.
J.E told at least 60 fibs to Aunt
Ginny that day while giving his all-
bi. Finally, she called a halt to IL
The amused twinkle was gone from
her eyes. Sadness had replaced it
Her voice was never any less than
gentle, but it had a weight to it,
that made it hard for the rest of us
to breathe. All of us wanted to cry.

Just "lost it". She threw up her
hands, marched over and handed
Addle Bell her favorite peach tree
switch.
The room was silent except for
J.E's wailing and his mother's
snuffling as she tried to explain the
latest child psychology book she'd
been reading.'
"Aw, stuff it, Addle Bell, and
take my peach tree switch. I'll let
you have it on loan."
Things eventually got cordial
between them again, and Addle
Bell agreed to allow J.E. to start
going to Aunt Ginny's that sum-
mer. All of us knew it was coming
eventually, but still we dreaded the
eventual day of it happening. No
one liked him. He was a pest, just
like his mama. 'He told the worst
lies. Whatever you knew, so did he,
but more. He'd done everything
you'd done, plus more. Gone where
you'd gone, but further. And had
the most frightful way of monopo-
lizing the conversation.
No matter what you called
him, no matter how many times
you hit or kicked him, you couldn't
make him go away. We were stuck
with' him. That is, till he lied to
Aunt Ginny.
The Unforgivable Sin
Aunt Ginny had one hard rule.
You could eat all you could hold,
all day long If you wanted, but if
she put it up on the counter for
canning or baking, you were to
leave it alone. There was no excep-
tions.
That week, she'd had all of us
up early picking all the wild grapes
we could find and putting them up
on her counter so she could make
jelly. J.E. got'out of that because
his mother thought he "deserved"
the right to sleep till noon on sum-
mer days and he usually strolled In
after lunch. The grapes had all
been picked and washed and were
all ready when he came in that
day.

We wondered what she would
lo to him. What she did was give
him a motherly hug, ease him off
her lap, and turn him toward her
so he had to face her. He wasn't
resistant to any of this.
S"Son, you're lying to me."
"Ain't."
"I won't argue. Your shirt collar
does it for you."
He strained to see the guilty
spot, and his eyes went wide. His
nouth opened, perhaps to offer a
plausible explanation. She took a
hand off his shoulder and gently
pushed his lower jaw up, to shut
his mouth. This time it stayed
shut.

A collective gasp came fr6m
the group of children. "Now son,
I'm going to teach, you one of my
special lessons. I, just hope it,
takes,"
"You gonna whup him?" A boy
asked.
Aunt Ginny looked sad. "No. I
only wish a whupping would work.
This ain't a stubborn problem.
This is a character problem. And I
can't put-what's never been there.".
All of us 'were still, in a
shocked silence, hanging on her
every word.
"Son, if you'd told me what
you'd done, I probably would have
whupped you, and let it go at that.
] let you know, in fact, made a spe-
cial point of telling you not to do
something, and you done it any-
way, as soon as you thought my
back was turned. A whipping
might have cured that, but you lied
to me, not once, but many times,
one right after another. And that
Just about breaks my heart.
"Cause there's only one thing I
know to do."
We all stepped closer, anxious
to know his fate. "I can't trust you
son. You need to go out and find
you some character. And when you
got it you won't have to tell me, I'll
know. Till, then, I can't have a
child I can't trust in my home.
please go home now." .
He went, his arrogance gone,.
and perhaps a seed of repentance
traveling along with him. It would
be a while before Aunt 'Ginny

Dear Counselor;
Hi, I'm a 6th grade student,
and I am worried about a friend.
Recently, she stayed over for a
slumber party and told me a big
secret. She told 'me'her dad was
'messing 'with her.' She was very
upset and made me promise not
to tell. I am very worried because
this is my best friend. I want to
talk to mry mom about this, but I
made a promise to my friend.
Also, I am over at her house a
lot, and now I don't feel good
about going there, especially
when her dad is around. I want to
help my friend but don't know
how without making her hate me.
SAlso, does this happen a lot?
Please let me know what I can do
so I can help her.
No Name but I care
Dear I Care:
First, I'd really like to thank,
you for writing. Sexual abuse is
one of the last 'taboo' topics in our
society that Is receiving attention.
It is still very difficult for people to
talk about this. To answer your
question, however, according to
current figures, one in three
females have been abused by the
age of 18 in our society, and one
in five males. It is often even hard-
er for males to tell because they
view what happened as marking
them as a 'sissy.' Your friend took
a big step by telling you.'
There are several things that
you may do to help her. First of
all, she needs you to listen to her,
and to be there for her as a friend,
which it sounds like you are
doing. Secondly, it may help to let
' her know what resources 'are
available for her. There is a 1-800
hotline in the state ;of Florida
which takesreports of child abuse
and neglect. She rmay call her own
report in, or someone else, includ-
ing you, can do it. The number is
1-800-96-ABUSE. Trained 'oun-
selors are staffed to take the
report and assist her in getting
the help she needs.


If she, does take this step, she
will' probably have her case
Referred to the child protective
service unit of HRS (Health and.
Rehabilitative Services). If the.
report 'is 'founded' (proven) she'
may, then experience some
changes in her present home situ-
ation to protect her from further
abuse. The HRS will probably
refer her to counseling services at
the local' mental health clinic so
that she may begin dealing with
the painful consequences of hav-
ing been abused. The clinic in our
county is the. Gulf. County
Guidance Clinic, and their hum-,
ber Is 227-1145. They haye some-
one pn call 24 hours a day, 7 days
a week to handle emergencies.
Let me urge you to tell your
friend to 'break the silence' by
j telling a compassionate adult,
such as a teacher, a guidance
counselor, or a minister. Although
she may be scared to do this, the
results of not talking may mean
that the abuse may get worse, or
the problems stemming from it
may follow her into her adult
years. She may be very surprised
to find out how many caring and
Concerned people there are within
her community once she tells her
story. However, she must take the
first step.
Thank you for caring about
your friend! If I or any of the other
guidance clinic staff can help you
further, please let us know.
Sincerely,
Laura Kathryn Rogers, MS
Counselor

JAMES E. "JAMIE"






LESTER

FOR



PROPERTY APPRAISER


"Gulf County's Own"

His announcement says it all.
(Dated May 9, 1996)


James E. "Jamie" Lester

James E. "Jamie" Lester has announced his candidacy for the office
of Gulf County Property Appraiser. Jamie and his family, Robin and 10-
month old son, Trey, have been a part of five generations from Gulf
County. This includes his father, James E. "Bo-John" Lester of
Wewahitchka, his mother, Joyce D. Wynn, and his grandparents, Ed and
Marie Wynn of PortSt. Joe.
"Since graduating from Wewahitchka High School, he has earned a,
Masters Degree in Business Administration from Liberty University, a
Bachelors Degree in Public Administration, and is also a State Certified
Residential Appraiser and licensed Florida Real Estate Broker."
"Along with his education he has gained extensive experience in'
real property matters, budgeting, and personnelsmanagenment..His expe-
I rience includes working two and a half years in the'Bay County'Property
SAppraiser's'Office, plus being part owner in a real estate tax consulting
firm, where he fought on the side of the property owner for lower prop-
erty valuations. Currently, Jamie is working with PBS&J Inc. as a Real
Estate Specialist and also a real estate appraiser appraising property in
Gulf County for individuals and several financial institutions.
"Because Jamie fought against higher property values, taxes, and
the bureaucracy behind being being treated fairly, he is confident being
on the same side as the property owner gives him that understanding and
fairness that people deserve. He wants to be a fighter against the bureau-
cracy of the State, and put understanding, fairness, knowledge, friendli-
ness, back in the hands of the people. By electing Jamie as property
appraiser he will be the voice that stands behind the people of the coun-
ty, because they are the tax payers. Those individuals that are familiar
with Jamie, know he will stand firm for the people because this is evident
in his character and personality. Gulf County needs one of its own, some-'
one like him that grew up in Gulf County and now has experience and
knowledge to help the people."
"Jamie realizes that senior citizens have played, and continue to
play, an important role in our society, and protecting their rights today
ensures protection in the future. When he is elected property appraiser,
he will strive to keep the public informed of laws that effect them and will
stand firm in fighting those that try to take away home owners property
rights and those that affect our businesses which support our local econ-
omy. .
"The people deserve someone that will stand up for them and work
hard to protect their interest along with being fair in valuing their prop-
erty. Gulf County means a great deal to Jamie because it's his home coun-
ty. According to Jamie, "It's not the beautiful rivers, beaches, or lakes that
make Gulf County so great. It's the people." 'He wants to be a working
property appraiser for all in Gulf County.

/s/ Pauline Pendarvis
City Clerk
2tc, July 25 and August 1. 1996.


To the Voters of District Three:
I have enjoyed serving as your District 3 County Commissioner for the past
four years, and I am very proud of the Board's accomplishments during this
time. We have strived to boost county facilities and services, while reducing
ad-valorem taxes every year. When I Was elected, I was committed to reduc-
ing the ad-valorem tax burden, and shifting it to Grants, State-Shared
Revenues or "user pays". Presently, with an 11 million dollar budget, ad
valorem taxes (property tax) represents only 40%'of that total. We no longer
subsidize our water systems, the Building Department or the Landfills, etc.,
these departments stand completely on their'own. I also believe strongly in
aggressively pursuing grants. We have just received notice of award of a
$600,000.00 grant for. the Highland View Water System. This will totally refur-
bish the Highland View Water System, at no cost to the water customer. I am
certainly glad that Gulf County received this grant, and not New York City. We
have actively pursued Ambulance Grants, 911 Grants, Fire Department Grants,
Water System Grants, Park Grants, Recycling Grants, Solid Waste Grants,
Waste Tire Grants, Hazardous Material Grants, etc. By actively seeking grants,
Gulf County can keep our property taxes low., and still provide up to date ser-
vices that our residents expect and deserve.


Keep the


man for less taxes and responsive County government.

Re-elect Michael L.

Navy Airman Preston L.
Farmer, son of Larry L. and Linda
S. Farmer of White City, recently
completed the Aviation Electri-
cian's Mate Course located at the
Naval Air Technical Training
Center in Millington, Tennessee.
During the five month course,
Farmer received training In elec-
trical theory and circuitry which
will prepare him to work on the
electrical components of jet air-
craft. Farmer also studied a vari-
ety of aircraft electrical systems
including electro-hydraulic, auto-
matic flight control, and electrical
power generation and distribu-
tion.
Farmer is one of the approxi-
mately 950 men and women who
graduate ,from the. Navy's
Technical Training Center each
year. Even as the Navy- gets
smaller over the next few years,
motivated sailors and marines
like Farmer are finding an oppor-
tunity to improve their knowledge.
and be a part of the most highly'
technical naval force in history.
The 1995 graduate of Port St.
