Gulf Will Have Republican Primary For First Time In History


The largest number of Gulf
County voters, ever, are eligible to
go the polls next Tuesday to cast
their ballots in the first primary .
elections.
The word "elections" is
used in the plural because for
the first time in history Gulf
County is holding a Republican
Primary this year. Two of the
political persuasion are seeking
the position' of Superintendent
of Schools, along with three


Democrats.
The office of the Supervisor of
Elections Cora Sue Robinson re-
ports there are 9,537 registered
to vote in the county. This is
nearly 1,000 more than were
qualified in the last election held
two years ago. 1,230 of this num-
ber are Republicans, the fastest
growing political party in the
county at the present time.
Voting will be allowed at all
14 precincts in the county from


7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., local time.
[In case you are wondering about
the number .of precincts-14- -
when the county has a "Precinct
15", it's because there is no 13th
precinct.]
The last change in voting
places was made a few years ago,
when voting In Precinct 10 was
shifted to the Mosquito Control In
Port St. Joe, located at the east
end of 10th Street. All 14 polling
places are handicapped accessi-
ble.


Next Tuesday will be only
the first round of voting of
three steps necessary for elec-
tion. The candidates have al-
ready been involved in about
three months of intensive cam-
paigning and, for some, Tues-
day will be election, since there
are only two candidates seek-
ing the particular office.
For the most part. however, a
multitude of candidates have
qualified for every office to be de-


cided this election season.
The Supervisor of Elections
and the candidates urge you to go
to the polls and cast your vote.
Gulf County, historically, has one
of the highest percentages turn
out in the state of Florida at
state-wide polling.
WEWA VOTING
FOR MAYOR
Wewahltchka will be taking
advantage of the attraction of a'
large number of voters in a state-


wide election to elect a new may-
or.
Grady L. Booth and Gene
Hanlon will vie for the post being
vacated by Ray Dickens, who has
resigned to seek the' office of
County Commissioner.
A separate polling place will
be set up adjacent to the general
election polling booth for the pur-
pose of conducting the election.
The city polls will be open the
same hours as the state polls.

Sign Over Deed
For 10-Acre Site
Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege's education center planned
for eastern Gulf County moved
one step closer to reality this
week. The deed for the 10-acre
site, valued at $160,000, was for-
mally presented to the college by
David and Trish Tapper Warriner
of Port St. Joe, who owned the
property.
The property on U.. S.
Highway 98 and Garrison Avenue
will house the Gulf Coast
Community College Gulf/Frank-
lin Center to serve the residents of
both Gulf and Franklin counties.
Trish Warriner said, "My par-
ents loved our community .and
they loved Gulf Coast Community
College. They believed that educa-
tion, and particularly community
college education, was essential
to success. By helping make this
center possible, my husband
David and I are continuing the
legacy my parents began."
GCCC Board Chair Jeannette

dants, and (5) Motion to Add
Additional Civil Rights Violation-
were filed by Maxwell as a result
of a joint narcotic investigation
with the Gulf County Sheriffs
Office and the Gulf 'Correction-
Institution.
Maxwell was arrested on
June 7th' after officers served a
search warrant on her residence
near Gulf Correctional Institution
in northern Gulf County. Maxwell
had allegedly been smuggling
marijuana into the prison. Offi-
cers found several ounces of mar-
ijuana in her residence.
According to information


received from the prison system,
Maxwell has a boyfriend, who is
an ex-Death Row inmate, in G.C.I.
serving time for murder, Maxwell
is well-known inside the prison
system for her "filing of lawsuits".
Along with Sheriff McKeithen,
being named in the suit were sev-
eral other agencies, including Ron
McAndrew of G.C.I. and Herman
Larimore with the Public Defen-
der's Office.
According to Sheriff McKeith-
en it's not unusual for the heads
of agencies to be named in suits
simply because they are in
charge. "You could be in New York


City when something happens
and still be named," said
McKeithen.
Sheriff McKeithen said people
like Maxwell are simply taking-
advantage of the system by clut-
tering the courts with invalid and
inaccurate suits and motions. The
suit has no validity and most like-
ly will be squashed, according to
the sheriff.
He said it basically is a hand
.written letter signed by a defen-
dant who was arrested on drug
charges. A judge has not issued a
ruling as to continue or dismiss at
press time.

the board has given complaints to
the contractor about the time

VETERANS NURSING HOME
Veterans Service Officer Bo
Williams reported back to the
board concerning Gulf County's
application to the Florida
Department of Veteran Affairs, to
-be-considered .n the-site-selection..
process for a new veterans nurs-
ing home to built within the state.
Williams told the board that
Gulf was one of 13 counties that
submitted site proposals, accord-
ing to correspondence from FDVA.
The letter stated the DVA Site
Selection Committee would be vis-
iting selected proposed locations
during September and the
Governor and Cabinet would
make a final decision on the site
October 8th, based on recommen-
dations by the Florida Depart-
ment of Veteran Affairs.
The board should know with-
in the next few days whether or
not they are in the running for, the
facility. If Gulf should be chosen
as the nursing home site, it would
mean a total of 132 Jobs for the
county, many of which would be
for professional services.
Williams noted that 64,700
veterans are located within a 75-
mile radius of the proposed site.
He and Gulf County Chamber
of Commerce Executive Director
Tamara Laine submitted the pro-


re been of this project,"'she added.
funding In addition to the Warriners,
she thanked college trustees Greg
Johnson, Ralph Roberson and
George Duren and former trustee
J. V. Gander. "We are also grateful
to Gulf County Commissioner
Michael Hammond, School
Superintendent Walter Wilder and
Chamber Director Tamara Laine
.. in Gulf County. Their support has
been so important to this project,"
she said.
Construction of the center
should begin in March of 1997,
according to GCCC President Bob
McSpadden. "We expect the cen-
ter to be completed by the spring
of 1998," he said.
The center, which will be
approximately 15,000 square feet
will have six traditional class-
rooms that can be converted Into
a small auditorium for communi-
ty use, two computer laboratories,
a distance learning classroom, a
science lab, a reading/study
resource center, and a small
administrative area.
"We're very excited about this
project and will continue to work
with local citizens to determine
needed programs and services for
David this center," McSpadden pointed
out.

Warriners Make Education Center Reality



















Please Vote!

IT'S FINALLY COME DOWN to the nitty gritty of the matter.
After two months of intensive "politicking" by the various and
numerous candidates seeking public office, it's time for us to let
them know who did the better job of wooing our vote. We have
the duty-and the privilege-of going to the polls on Tuesday. of
next week and performing the herculean task of marking an "X"
by the appropriate name we wish to "hire" for an appropriate
time to serve us in government.
We use the words "hire" and "serve" advisedly since this is
exactly what our part in this little game called politics boils
down to and it is what the ones we hire are expected to do;
"serve" us all in a fair and competent manner in our govern-
ment.
WE CHARGE YOU NOT to vote for your own brother-
should he happen to be running-If in your opinion he wouldn't
be competent at performing the job he is seeking. We in Gulf
County pay too much salary, even for the part-time jobs of com-
missioner, and there are too many to choose from, for us to, as
Individuals, settle for anything less than' the cream of the crop..
.for any job.
For this reason, we urge upon you the seriousness of this job
of selecting our public servants next week. First, it should be
mandantory that we vote. Second, it should be just as mandan-
tory that we use judgment, not necessarily preference, in our se-
lections.
EACH OF THE candidates have spent a fair amount of mon-
ey and a great amount of time, trying to persuade you to support
his or her candidacy. That's as it should be, but let's not vote
solely based on who had the "slickest" campaign or who said ex-
actly the right things we wanted to hear. Anyone can run a slick
campaign. Anyone can say the things we have been waiting to
hear. The trick Is to select the candidate WE BELIEVE will do the
things he or she says they will do.
When you get right down to the nitty-gritty of selection next
Tuesday, our selection will [or should] be based on who is telling
us the truth when he/she makes promises.


Expecting A Deluge
A SUBJECT ON THE NBC evening news Wednesday evening
served to give us, reason to pause and consider, seriously, the
matter of voting on the half mill sales tax for the Gulf County
School Board.
A good bit of the Wednesday evening telecast had to do with
the problems of school districts all across our nation. The prob-
lem of keeping up with the deluge of students which is being ex-
perienced by the schools ... especially across the southern tier
of states. The baby boomers of a few years ago are now begin-
ning to send their children to school in droves. If our school
hasn't experienced the influx of students, it's only a matter of
time before we, too, have -our present facilities tested for their
ability to handle the student load.
ACCORDING TO THE NEWS PROGRAM the baby boomers'
children threaten a student population the likes of which we
have never seen before. It will take 180,000 more teachers just
t" keep up; not to mention the books, desks..,blackboards, bus-,
es, and other "hardware" needed by the nation's schools [of
which Gulf County is a part].
We may have more reasons to consider the approval of the
sales tax other than just wanting quality schools, for our children
to attend. If that were to be the only reason, we could be very
selfish and adopt the attitude that we are against it [the tax] be-
cause all our children have finished school and we feel no obliga-
tion to furnishing facilities and all the things that go with them,
to educate the children of others. But, alas, we can't make that
claim. We have had children go through the system. We have
had our grandchildren go through the system. Now we are faced
with the responsibility of furnishing a quality education for our
great grandchildren to accumulate.
THERE ARE THOSE WHO will probably not support the
sales tax because too many on the staff of the schools are paid.
more than we have ever received from the management of The
Star Publishing Company, for doing a fraction of the work or
having a fraction of the responsibility on their shoulders and
they would be correct in that assumption.
We believe, however, that any business as large as our
school system is bound to have some inequities. We -realize, too,
that If every one of these inequities were corrected, the amount
saved would be a far cry from being enough to pay for the neces-
sities our schools are faced with having to provide.

Hunker Down with Kes by le



If Ole Duke Could Only Talk


I think perhaps I have made
a major faux pas in my stum-.
bling journalistic career. In try- ,t
ing to keep up with the Olym-"
pics, the ever growing number of
prime time award shows, Leorin'
and the current points leader on
the NASCAR circuit, I complete-
ly forgot to 'do my annual "dog :
days" story. I think it's too late
I'm not exactly sure when dog
, days "go out" but they've either
passed or we're right on top of;
the end of the '96 howling.
I sometimes wisi it was like
the 4th of July. Hey, no specula-


tion there! Or. I'd even settle for
a deal like Christmas. I remem-
ber when that season started
about a week before the 25th
and ran through the big Christ-
mas afternoon meal or when
Aunt Thelma left, which ever
came first. Now, I' know we've
backed up the beginning of
Christmas a tad each year. But
we've always had that little No-
relco guy sliding over the fake
snow on an electric shaving
head to kinda' kick in the sea-
son. In recent years' we've been
"noticed" as to the beginning of
the Christmas period 'by the re-
peated showings of It'S A Won-
derful Life and the're-re-makes
of Miracle On 34th Street,

mer season and ydti get ten dif-
ferent answers. Shticks, ask ten
: '* ,? s *


folks why we call It dog days .

It was a lot easier back in
my early years. Old Duke would
come out from under the front
porch and start, without provo-
cation of any visible kind, howl-
ing at tall trees, the moon, the'
back side of the barn, the fence
post by the hog pen ..... Dad
would stand on the porch, stare
up at the night sky like he was,
fixing the stars in his mind and
then announce with authority
and a great amount of certainty
that, "Dog days are upon us."
It would get hotter than sev-
en blazes, the air would. quit
moving, mosquitos as big as
747's would start landing in the'
front yard and the rain came
every day ... .
The conversation 'on the.
front porch of Woodrow Ken-
non's Mercantile. Dry Goods and


Grocery Store would become
more animated. Tempers were
short. Fights would break out
over nothing. Mrs. Macle Bell
Finsterwahl came to town with-
out a hat! I tell you, all kinds of
strange things would be going
on.
Saturday mornings -would
find me on the front steps of
Woodrow's carefully pouring
peanuts into my NuGrape and
listening just as carefully to the
wherefores and whywithals of
dog days.
"Sure is hot."
"Yep. Got to be a record."
"Hotter than last year."
"I heard that."
Well, first I listened to the
obligatory weather report-then
and only then would the conver-
sation get down to brass tacks--
"I reckon dog days are going
to linger a little longer this year.
This heat is not going to 'move
out any time soon." "
I'don't think the heat drives
dog days. I believe it has to do
with that Sirius star lining up
between the moon and the sun."
Mr. Abernathy had lived in
Memphis and sometimes talked
a little over the rest of us.
There was, a silence now be-
cause no one had a clue what he
was talking about. I thought of
my Dad staring up into the sky
when Duke went to howling.
Maybe Mr. Abernathy was
smarter than he looked.
"I don't see how a star could
have anything to do with dog
days." Mr. Finsterwahl probably
had never even seen Memphis
and it was a known fact that.he
didn't like Clyde Abernathy.
"Maybe," Mr.. Abernathy
paused to choose his words
carefully, "dog days came about
because a lady showed up in
town with her head uncovered
and scared the local dogs half
out of their--"
Mr. Finsterwahl leaped off
his Royal Crown Cola case and
grabbed Clyde by the throat,
both, men- tumbled down ,the
stgps barely missingg me a#i my
NuGrapel .,
I tell you, dog days can
bring on some amazing things. .
Along about the end of Au-
gust or early September, the
mosquitos would thin out, the
heat would lessen. Duke would
go back to chasing rabbits,
mockingbirds would start sing-
ing again... And Dad would
look around, sniff the air and
declare dog days, "to finally be
over".
I've studied on it for years.
I've asked questions. I've called
the psychic hotline. Folks today
don't seem to know any more
,about it than those guys back
on the porch.
Duke died in 1964 and I've
been confused on the beginning
and ending of dog .days ever
since .

I Coaxed Gil Into Eating His First Oyster, Five Years Ago


I RECEIVED A letter the oth-
er day, written by hand, from one
Gilbert Williams. You remember
Gil Williams, don't you; he was
the recent president of the First
Union Bank?
The bank higher-ups moved
him off to Perry just when we
were beginning to get accustomed
to his ways and his "never-met-a-
stranger"-attitude. Gil was crazy,
but we hardly ever allowed that
fact to bother us or prevent us
from recognizing him in polite
company.
I never did get accustomed to
recognizing him as a bank presi-
dent however. It was hard, if not
impossible, to imagine that Gil
could ever tell a potential borrow-
er "No". Somehow, that activity
just didn't seem natural with Gil.
Old Gil didn't have on a suit
and tie every time you saw him in
public, either. He was sort of laid
back. Why, he would even show
up in church wearing his Univer-
sity of Kentucky T-shirt. How


ETAOIN SHRDLU


*IL


many bank presidents do 'you
know that would come to church
dressed like that? How many of
any kind of people do you know
that would come to church
dressed like that? I admit, this
only happened at the evening ser-
vice, but I give you my word that
it did happen.
Of course, the University of
Kentucky wasn't what you would
call a winner in anything except
basketball, but Gil supported
them down here in Florida in
spite of their one sport excellence.

GIL's LETTER contained a
check to pay for a subscription to
this wonderful newspaper. It was


By Wesley Ramsey


made out to the correct amount
and he even signed it.
Even his checks bore the Uni-
versity of Kentucky 'Wildcats"
logo. I sort of thought Gil had a
propensity fQr carrying things a
bit too far. His checks, with their
logo, proved it!
The University of. Kentucky
might have paid Gil for his adver-
tising down here among the unin-
itiated. Stranger things have hap-
pened. But Gil Is just the shy,
unpretentious sort of guy to carry
something like this off and make
it somewhat believable. You
know, a guy everyone knows is
crazy anyhow, touting a school
like the University of Kentucky.


S I never told. Gil."'his while he .:
was here for fear it would give
him an inferiority qpmplex to mix
with his shy-ness. &r c

WHEN GIL MOVED here,
some five years ago, he and I had
a "lunch arrangement". This ar-
rangement didn't cover every day,
nor every week ... not even every
month. Every once i9 a while we
would get together. do lunch and
talk over matters which were the
"burning problems" of the day.
As a matter of fact, it was me
who introduced Gil to oysters.
The poor refugee from Kentucky
had never eaten one. not even
a cooked oyster,, much less a raw
one. I never did get him to eat a
raw one, but before he left here,
he could hide some roasted ones!
That proves Gil was adven-
turesome. He would try almost
anything [except a raw oyster]. He
would even try cooked collardsl
No jokel The next time you see
him, just try him out.
Anyhow, Gil and I had this


"lunch arrangement". He would
pay for one meal and he was good
at reminding me when it was my
turn to pay. He had a great mem-
ory when it came to remembering
who paid last. It seemed to get
better as the time between meals
lengthened, /because he could re-
member time after time that it
was my turn to pay when I didn't
seem to recollect that I hadn't
paid on the last time we "did
lunch".
I would usually gain a little
insight as to whether it was my
turn to pay, however, based on
the cost of the lunch he felt like
eating at a particular time. When
it was my turn to pay, he would
order his lunch according to price
. .. the higher the price, the more
delicious the food to him.

I DIDN'T MIND, though. I
was a glutton for being taken ad-
vantage of and Gil knew it.
I have now gotten even with
him and I didn't even set out to
get even. As a matter of fact, I


didn't realize me or anyone else
had gotten even with him until I
received his letter, written by
hand, of a few days ago. I must
admit it was a little hard to read
because of the penmanship. But,
then, I suppose the University of
Kentucky doesn't teach any mun-
dane subjects such as penman-
ship. Practicing "ovals" and
"push-pulls" such as I had to do
in Oklahoma elementary schools,
were probably foreign to Gil and
his Kentucky schools.
You see, Gil had to buy his
kids a horse in order to mollify
them for being forced to leave this
heaven on earth called Port St.
Joe. But I understand his leaving,
even if his kids didn't. It was sort
of like his job, and his pay were
moving to Perry and if he wanted
to continue with either, he had
best move, too.

cal equipment had received major

Third Consecutive Sportsmanship Award


Port St. Joe High School has
made sports history against For
the third consecutive year, the
school has been named recipient
of the Fred E. Rozelle Sportsman-
ship award among 3A schools In
the state. It Is the first time in his-"
tory' th( the-same school has
received the award three times.
It is a reflection on the calibre
of athletes, coaches, and commu-


nity involved, because without the
superb sportsmanship displayed
by all three entities, the award
could not have been attained.
Principal Wes Taylor travelled
to Lake Buena Vista to attend the
Florida.-High School Activities
Association's annual banquet
recently to accept the award on
behalf of Port St. Joe High School.

The board decided to adver-
tise for bids to construct phase

St. Joseph Peninsula, to be paid
for by a $100,000 park project
grant from the state.
Bill Kennedy, Preble-Rish
engineer, told the board every-
thing was in order on the grant,
except for the board's final signa-
ture.
Phase one of the park project

final details of the contract).
Issued concerns that the
county's emergency, management
generator was still not Working
and parts to fix it were on order,
but still not in. Commissioner
Hammond suggested the board
try putting pressure on the state
to see if they give some relief to
the problem.
Commission Chairman
Billy Traylor told the board that
the county anticipates getting
$216,000 from state race track

County School Board would also
continue to receive $230,000 of

not be discontinued.

Rotary Club president presents a gift to
District Governor Bobby Yates on his visit


here, Club treasurer John Miller, left and
secretary Doug Kent, right, look on.


Rotary Dist. Gov. Visits Local Club


Rotary District 6940 District
Governor Charles;Robert [Bobby]
Yates paid an unofficial visit to
the Port St. Joe club last Thurs-
day. Yates is; a retired- architect,
and a member:of the Capital City
club in Tallahassee and an uncle
of, Port St..Joe's president. Ralph
Roberson.
The district governor embel-
lished on the Rotary theme for
the year in a light and humorous
manner while stressing the seri-
ous. aspects of his address.
He told.how Rotary is unique
in its operations. "They don't just
ask you to support something
with your money, they use every
penny of that money to finance
the project-after they invest it
for three years to earn enough in-
terest off it to pay the overhead of
the particular project ,they are
supporting," he said.
In speaking of Rotary's most
visible project, Polio Plus, the
Governor said the project has
eliminated polio in 144 countries
over the world. "As an example,
the project vaccinated 89 million
children in India in just two
days," he said. "The project is still
continuing, financed by the
unique- way Rotary has in paying
for its projects."
The theme of Rotary this year
is, "Build the future with action
and vision". Governor "Bobby"
charged the local club to do its


part through having an impact on
our community, building 'the fu-
ture by honoring our past and
strengthening our membership.


'We can make a difference in our
programs to Immunize, illuminate
and educate," the district govern-
or said, in closing.

Being in good hands

Dear Mr. Ramsey,
I want to take this opportuni-
ty to thank all of those in Gulf
County who helped with the
J.T.P.A. Summer Youth program.
Job training programs across the
state were restructured this year,
causing us to get off to a late start
locally. The program was still very
successful due to the cooperation
of the wonderful people in Gulf

Heartbroken
To the Guilty Party:
I hope you feel real satisfied,
and contented with the crime you
committed Wednesday AM 8-21f-
96. You broke my heart and also
my two son's hearts. We did have:
a small puppy that was like a
member of our family, however,
you chose to put an end to our,
puppy's life. True, our puppy was
over on your street visiting, how-
ever, you chose- to put an end to
"Shorty's" life by taking your gun
and shooting him. If only you had.
taken a few extra minutes to call
the police, the animal control unit
or even us, we would still have.
our little "Shorty." It would have
been much easier for all parties
involved.
We had our little "Shorty" for
fifteen years but you chose to end,
his life in a cruel heartless man-
ner. We can only hope that your
desire to destroy our precious
puppy's life will not extend to,
some, poor innocent child or some
other pet that just happens to be
in your neighborhood. We will for-
give you of this unjust crime, but
we want you to know that you
broke our hearts in a way that is
hard to forget. "Shorty" was a,
friend to everyone.

tion of the coaches and athletes
involved, along with tremendous
community support.
Part of that'support for the
athletic programs at Port St. Joe
High School comes from the

the entire athletic programs
offered by the Sharks.

tribution to the Shark Booster

It's that ,time of year again
Break out the banners and hats,
the cushions and seats, because
the Sharks and Gators are almost
ready to start the '96-'97 gridiron
season.
Both teams will get an idea
where they stand this season by
competing in kick-off classics
Thursday and Friday nights.
Wewa will play Thursday night
hosting R. F. Munroe at 6:00
p.m., CT, and the Sharks will
travel to Tommy Oliver Stadium
in Panama City to face 6A Mosley
at 8:30 p.m., ET, Friday night.
Port St. Joe Sharks
Under new Head Coach
Chuck Gannon, the Sharks are
working toward improving last
season's record (4-5; 2-2, dis-
trict).
The Sharks will field 21 play-
ers, and according to Gannon,
because of the slim number of
varsity players the team will expe-
rience an obvious depth problem.
"One of the keys to us having a
successful season will be to
remain healthy through the last
half of the season when we play
our district schedule," he said.
Nine seniors, eight juniors,
and four sophomores will round
out a Shark squad that returns
six starters on defense and five on
offense.
Several players will also be
called on to play both offense and
defense. Jarred Patterson and
James Daniels will start the sea-
son splitting duties at quarter-
back. Neither have varsity experi-
ence at the position with Daniels
being the more mobile of the two
and Patterson having the better,
passing arm.
Gannon also noted the team's
young offensive line will need to
mature quickly in order for the
team to be effective running out of
the "I" formation.
Wewahitchka Gators
Wewa's Kick-Off Classic will
be formatted a little different than
most. According to Head Coach,
Wayne Flowers, they will split
halfs with Robert F. Munroe. with
Wewa's junior varsity playing the'


Munroe junior varsity during the
first half and both team's varsity
teeing it up in the second half of
play.
They finished the '95-'96 sea-
son with an 8-2 record (6-1, dis-
trict) and advanced to the first
round of the state play-offs follow-


"We're just looking for some-
one else to hit besides ourself," he
said.
Much like the Sharks,
Flowers points to inexperience
and line depth as potential prob-
lems for the Gators. "With four
offensive and four defensive


starters returning, we have a lot
of positions to fill, especially on
the offensive line where we lost
three starters," he said.
Seven seniors, eight juniors,
eight sophomores and one fresh-,
man will fill the 24 man roster for:
the Gators.

In 1930, the lifetime risk of develop-

leaped to 1 in 250. And. if the current
rate of increase continues, by the year

made a commitment they should
make every effort to keep," the
speaker said.
Gannon said the varsity
squad only has 21 men dressing.
out, but said they are committed
to "bringing back the past glory,of
the city's football legacy." He em-,
phasized that they all realize they"
have their work cut out for them
but "they are willing to pay the
price," he declared.
The head coach told the Ki-
wanians that a lot of the men will"
be going both ways this season..


'We've always had that situation
at St. Joe High, but expect it
again this year even more so than'
in the past," Gannon said.
Reading off the schedule for
this season, the coach said, "It
ain't gonna be easy! We feel like
we'll have a good chance at being
competitive in our league and
have just as good a chance as,
any team in the league for being
in the play-offs."
The team starts off the sea-,
son this Friday night with a prac-
tice game against 5A Mosley.
Then next Friday night it will be
arch rival Wewahitchka. "'We'll
.close out our season against the -
four teams in our conference: Ha-
vana. Blountstown, Monticello
and Florida High," he said. "I
hope we will have enough experi-
ence under our belt by the time
we get there to do the job."

MIND THESE ABCD s
They may be signs of:
malignant melanoma.

S. Rigel, Robert J. Friediman and
Alfred W. Kopf, members of the New
York University Melanoma Coopera-
t rive group. Their findings were
published in a dermatologic clinical
journal. .
They also reported that the rate of
developing melanoma is increasing
faster than any other cancer: Mela-
noma is now the most frequent cancer
.'. women ages 25 to 29 and the
.' second most frequent cancer, after
breast cancer, in women between 30
and 34.
*The melanoma epidemic is world-
wide. Despite vigorous public educa-
:tion efforts, Australia, Austria,
Canada, Germany, Italy and Scotland
have experienced increases. .No
country has been' identified with a
decreasing rate.
With so many countries affected,
global factors are being considered.
Depleti6n of the stratospheric ozone
layer that allows more intense ultravio-
let light to reach the earth's surface
may, in part, be responsible for the
increases. Lifestyle changes that lead
to more "fun in the sun" also may
play a role.
Even the numbers reported by the
dermatologists may not tell the whole
story. Dr. Rigel says the disease may
be underreported because "Melanoma
is the only .major cancer that patients
may not at some point in their treat-
ment be seen at a hospital." There-
fore, many cases may not find their
way into tumor registries.
More melanoma also is costly..
According to the three dermatologists,
in 1990, an estimated $1.1 billion was
spent for melanoma treatment in the
U.S. Medicare program alone. With
melanoma rates doubling every 12
years, the paper calculates the annual
cost of treating melanioma could
exceed $5 billion by 2010.
The picture could be brightened by
several steps suggested in the paper:
Improve melanoma. diagnosing
skills by non-dermatologists who most
frequently first see suspected melano-
mas.
Emphasize sun protection and
avoidance to the general public. The
belief that tan is "chic" or beautiful
must be replaced.
Develop and better integrate diag-
nostic techniques.
Expand and evaluate melanoma
screening programs.
Establish a National Melanoma
Registry.
These steps could have a cumulative
effect. "As the effects of all these pro-
grams are felt," Dr. Rigel says, "we
look forward to the day when the
current near epidemic increase in the
numbers of melanomas are merely a
historical footnote."

RE-ELECT


Kesley Colbert, CFA


PROPERTY APPRAISER


THE MAN


The main reason I decided to seek the office of Sheriff was because of my
four children, the other children in this community, and my strong sense
of commitment to children, in general. I am the only candidate in this race
who is not a Deputy Sheriff. I am the only candidate in this race who is
qualified to work for the highest law enforcement agency in this country,
the FBI. I am the only candidate in this race who has a college degree,
majoring in accounting, with a minor in management. I am the only candi-
date in this race with a proven record of sern ice after being elected as your
Clerk of the Circuit Court.
When you can't attack a man's qualifications, the only thing left is his,
character. Those four children above, the people of Wewa who I live
among, who have seen me raise this children, coach Little League, and
attend church with these and other children, know my character, in addi-
tion to my qualifications. I am not mistake-free, but if I am the only man in
this race that has ever made a mistake, then the other five candidates are
in the wrong race. They should be running for Pope. I'm running for
Sheriff.
THE VISION
There is a proven correlation between the level of education in a state and
its,prison population. Florida ranks 50th (almost last) among states in the
percentage of students who graduate from high school. We rank first in
prison population per capital. Minnesota ranks first in high school gradua-
tion and 49th in per capital prison population. Eighty-two percent of our
prison population are high school dropouts. Sadly, most of .them had to
buy groceries, before being arrested, by the sight of the labels oi the items
they purchased because they could not read. It costs more to send a person
to prison for a year in Florida that it costs to send them to a major univer-
sity in Florida for a year. It is costing more to lock up our youth than to.
lift them up. If we truly care about the young people in our community, it
is time to seriously question a justice system that treats prisoners too well,
is a revolving door, and does nothing to discourage crime.
It is my contention that early intervention for first-time juvenile offenders
has extraordinary potential. Students, in Jacksonville, with serious discipli-
nary problems, are required to tour a jail, see a film about life in Florida's
prisons, and talk with locked-up juveniles about, their life behind bars. In
Crestview, gang resistance education and training (great) has helped curb
the rise in gang activity. In Miami, community leaders, parents, and busi-
ness people are volunteering for a year old program where adults read to
children for 30 minutes each summer day.
In Port St. Joe, Mold-A-Male, coordinated by Cthester Gant, Jr. and Maxine
Gant, has initiated a program, with the help of the Zion Fair Missionary
Baptist Church, to curb crime by focusing on prevention rather than retri-
bution. In Port St. Joe, the Washington Recreation Board of Directors, the
New Covenant Church, and, in Wewahitchka, the Methodist Church, and
other churches have brought in speakers such as FSU quarterback Charlie
Ward, UF quarterback Kerwin Bell, and former Valdosta High Sschool
Coach Nick Hyder to talk to our youth about family life, values, and
ethics. Nationally, 86% of those helped by Teen Challenge were still drug
free seven years later. The programs are out there, the commitments are
being made locally, and together we can-be a force for our youth. As your
Sheriff, I will make a commitment to work with the educational system,
the churches in our community, the taxpayers, and .the political entities to
form a new partnership that will bring new results, new hopes, and new
visions to Gulf County.

When the temperature climbs, a frosty treat offers welcome relief. And an ice
cream and cookie sandwich is a summertime favorite.
Soft and chewy oatmeal cookies chock-full of raisins or semisweet chocolate
pieces make Polar Ice Cream Sandwiches doubly delicious. Pick a cool morning
to bake the cookies and pop them in the freezer. (Be sure to cool cookies
completely and pack in an airtight container.) Then when it's time to cool off,
spread one cookie with a spoonful of your favorite ice cream and top with
another cookie. It's that easy!
SPolar Ice Creani Sandwiches


1 cup (2 sticks) margarine or
butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda,


1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
3 cups Quaker oats (quick or'
old fashioned, uncooked)
1 cup raisins or semisweet
chocolate pieces
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Ice cream, any flavor


Heat oven to 3500F. Beat together margarine and sugars until creamy. Add eggs
and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix
well. Stir in oats and raisins; mix well. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto
ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool
1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly

need improved management of tihefinancial records and per-
sonnel in the Sheriff's office.

But You Had Better Hurry If You Expect To Enjoy Them
Fresh; The Seasons Closes For The Year On Saturday


The scallop, like the oyster, is
a bivalve mollusk. Oysters live
their life attached to the bottom,
while scallops move about by
swimming. Scallops swim by
snapping their shells together and
expelling a jet of water. This
action leads to the development of
an oversized adductor muscle
called the "eye." This sweet-fla-
vored muscle is the only part of
the scallop eaten by Americans,
but Europeans eat the entire
shucked scallop.
The name, "scallop," aptly
describes the fluted edges of its
fan-shaped shell. TheI shells of
young scallops are beautiful. The
outside shell is delicately colored
pink and white and the inside is
pearly-white, with a satiny luster.
Calico scallop meats vary from
creamy white to light tan or pink.
They measure about 1/2 inch to
3/4 inch in diameter. Calicos are
generally lower in price than other
scallop meats, which makes them
a good buy.
Calico scallops are harvested
with trawls and dredges in deep
offshore waters of Florida's,
Atlantic and northern Gulf
coasts. Heaviest catches occur
during the months of September
through December. Scallops do
not close their shells tightly like
oysters and clams. They must be
shucked soon after harvest or
they lose body moisture.-'
Fresh-shucked scallop, meats
should .be refrigerated on ice (35-
40 degrees F.) and will maintain
quality for two days. Frozen scal-
lop meats, held at 0 degree F. or
less, will maintain quality for
three to four months. In choosing
scallop meats, examine the prod-
uct for a creamy color, firm tek-
ture, and a mild, sweet odor.
Packages of scallop meats should
be practically free of liquid.
Scallops may be poached,
sauteed, broiled, baked, or fried.
They should be cooked quickly to
maintain moisture and delicate
texture.
Scallops On The Grill.

Cooking seafood on the grill is
a favorite means of preparation in
Florida. All types of seafood are
grilled and kabobs are an easy
and delicious way of cooking.
Scallops, shrimp and fish cubes
are often used when making'
kabobs, and combined in one
recipe, they make a seafood feast.
Scallop Kabobs are tasty and
nutritious when served over rice.
Add a tossed green salad to make
a delicious meal. This kabob
recipe combines the color and fla-
vor of mushrooms, pineapple,
tomatoes and green pepper with
the delicate sweet taste of fresh
scallops. The kabobs are marinat-
ed in a light soy sauce marinade
before being placed on the grill.
Keep a close watch on the grilling
kabobs to guard against over
cooking this tender shellfish.
Fresh scallops should have a
creamy white, light tan or pinkish
color and a mild sweet odor. They
are best when used on the'day of
purchase, but they can be stored
in a refrigerator for two to three
days or frozen up to six months.

Commissioner,
Dist. 3
I would like to. cordially introduce my family to the fine people of
Gulf County. Above is my wife Joni and son, Shane. We reside at
St. Joe Beach. My wife and I are both graduates from the public
school system at Port St. Joe High.
I am the son of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Knox of Port St. Joe, and have 5
brothers and sisters, who all graduated from Port St. Joe High. I
have an 86-year-old grandmother who also lives at St. Joe Beach.
Plus I teach welding at Port St. Joe High and have over 55 stu-
dents who are also my family. These are the main reasons I say I
am a family man.
I have attended all county commission meetings for the last 3
months, the budget meetings and talked at length with the property
appraiser and also the tax collector. I have gotten an education on
how the county is being handled. The County Commission needs
to be accountable for its actions and keep the public informed.
Closed door conferences, hand shake agreements, and interfering
with the Gulf County School Board are just a few adjustments that
need to be corrected.
Our relationship with the city needs to improve, so that all the peo-
pie of Gulf County work as a family, not as an individual group. All
the people of Gulf County deserve the best, so let's spread our for-
tunes to everybody, not just a certain community or group.
In summary let's all try to become better neighbors and friends
and learn to work together. The welding class of 94-95 won an
award because they tried to make a difference. Whether you were
for the fishing ban or not, this applies to everyone: it reads as fol-
lows:
(Warrior Award know all ye men by these presents, once upon a
time there was a knock on a neighbor's door. Greed and misguided
wealth were standing there. Bullies with hearts so cold and egos
so large strained to enter. Honor, manhood and spiritual being
were under attack. Some people decided to help the neighbor. Be
it forever known, that when the great Florida fishing war was rag-
ing, Port St. Joe VICA Club, Port St. Joe, Florida, was in the
trenches fighting to help that neighbor).

A WORD OF THANKS


THE LESTER FAMILY
(Jamie, Robin & Trey)


(Master's Degree in Business Administration/
State Certified Residential Appraiser
License #0001087


Dear Friends,
As the first primary election draws near, would like to openly thank my family, friends, and supporters. I h've been
working hard, along with others, to win your trust and vote as your next Gulf County Property Appraiser. While eam-
paigning, I have been trying to work and support a family. This task has been difficult, but my determination to work for
you has been my primary goal. I have been running a positive campaign because I don't believe in any negative politics. 1
am very proud to say that Gulf County is my home and I would be very honored to be a representative of the people as
your property appraiser. I am honored to have the support and the contributions my friends and supporters have given
me. The contributions given to run this campaign include good old grass root efforts, not just by me, but of a lot of hard
working individuals. I would like to thank all those that have given to this campaign through their donations, hard work,
or a vote of confidence on September 3,,1996.
I have many friends throughout the state and I am thankful they think enough about me and my abilities to con-
tribute to our campaign. I say our campaign because this campaign has been a group effort for all the people, not just for
me. My former employers and associates, even though they have no interest in Gulf County or own any property, have
honored me by giving to our campaign. They see the hard work I contributed to them and the help I have given to others
in thepast aid they wish to express their thanks by helping me and our campaign efforts:. f
On all my literature and signs, it says "Paid For By The Friends of James E. "Jamie" Lester". I am thankful tfo their
help because all are my friends. This campaign has been based on my willingness to work hard and stand up for the peo-
ple and on September 3, 1996 you will decide if you wish to accept my willingness to work for you and allow me to use
what Ihave learned and the experience I have gained.
There will not be any incentive for an individual once they receive their education or experience if we in Gulf County
do riot give them the chance. I am asking for that chance on September 3, 1996 and I hope you allow me to serve. I would
appreciate your vote and I wish to thank you ahead of time. Remember, to vote on September 3, 1996 and vote for me ,
which is a vote for the people.
Sincerely,

Jamie Lester


A PEOPLE ORIENTED PERSON
Those that have ever meet Jamie, know he is really a people oriented
person. He is always willing to help others and always uplifting Gulf
County. Jamie says, "It is not the beautiful rivers, beaches, or lakes that
make Gulf County so great, it's the people."
Since Jamie has always been a part of Gulf County, he gives a great
deal of credit for his morals, values, and beliefs, to the people of Gulf
County, not just his parents and grandparents. He gives credit to his
Sunday school teachers, elementary and high school teachers, along
with those individuals that have played a part in his life.
He and his wife take great pride in being past youth leaders for
Hardaway Assembly of God Church. The youth play an important
role in the future make up of our country, and protecting, nurturing
and guiding them today in the right direction is very much needed.
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.


"Protecting senior citizens rights today ensures
protection in the future"
James E. "Jamie" Lester


WHY IS JAMIE LESTER SEEKING THE
OFFICE OF PROPERTY APPRAISER
Like so many individuals, once they receive their education and experi-
ence, they have to leave and find a job somewhere else that they are quali-
fied for and can not stay in their home county. Jamie is trying to use what
he learned and use the knowledge gained from growing up in Gulf
County to work hard for the people.
Property Values (Real Estate Taxes)
Since Jamie fought against higher property values, taxes, and the bureau-
cracy behind being treated fairly, he is confident being on the same side as
the property owner gives him that understanding and fairness individu-
als deserve. He wants to be a fighter against the state, and put under-
standing, fairness, knowledge, and friendliness, back in the hands of the
people. By electing him as Property Appraiser, he will be the voice that
stands behind the people of the county, because they are the taxpayers.
Gulf County needs one of its own, someone like him that grew up in Gulf
County and now has experience and knowledge to help the people. Jamie
is not running against anyone, only asking for the chance to serve the
people.
Home Owners and Business Owners
Once he is 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 effect our busi-
nesses that support our local economy. The people deserve someone that
will stand up for them and work hard to protect their interest, along with
being fair in valuing property.
Jamie believes in a "Property Owners Bill of Rights". This means if the
government places restrictions or mandates against your property, such as
not being able to have a septic tank; or being able to build, then they must
pay you fair market value for your land. It does not make sense to pay
taxes on a property that is not usable due to government restrictions. We
need less government and more poWver back in the hands of the people.
Office Policy and Procedures
Not only will Jamie stand up for the people of Gulf County, he will strive to
uphold his conservative beliefs as it relates to budgeting and spending His
father BoJohn Lester had it rough growing up in Gulf County and the value
of a dollar has been instilled in Jamie all his life. Jamie wants to ensure the
office and personnel will strive to recognize that people are the most impor-
tant. He wants to make sure the people get served with a friendly smile and
most of all get results. Jamie will manage the office and will not be influ-
enced by anyone.

SUMMARY
Jamie grew up in the property appraisers office. His mother worked
there 17 years and started when Jamie was two years old. His feet and
knees have been all over that courthouse. He grew up under Sammie
Patrick, who was property appraiser for 48 years, and he worked 2.5
years at the Bay County property appraiser's office. Now he is asking
for the chance to serve and work hard for the people. Remember, a
property appraiser is hot just an individual that appraises your proper-
ty, he or she is an individual that is a representative of the people when
it comes to property rights and being a voice that stands up for those
rights. By electing Jamie as your Property Appraiser, he won't be just
an appraiser, or someone that fights hard for your rights, he will be....a
friend.


Jamie's saying in his high school yearbook was, "If you
see someone without a smile, give him yours."












Fertilizer Label Gives The Whole


Story About What It's Designed To Do


You can't judge fertilizer by
appearance. Fortunately, state
law requires each fertilizer label to
include specific content facts.
However, these can be confusing
so, I'll try to explain them.
To obtain the proper types of
fertilizers for various application,


you must understand the label.
At the top, you'll find the identifi-

the fertilizer will help your lawn,
or ornamentals, or vegetables. So,
read on.
Next, if the term "organic" is


used there will be a statement
identifying the type of materials,
as well as how much is natural,
and how much is synthetic. This

Dear Counselor,
I am a Christian and quite con-
fused about some of the advice I am
receiving from the people In my
church. I have been extremely
depressed off and on all .nmy'llfe. 1was
physically and sexually abused as a
child. I also have a problem with anx-
lety attacks that happen for no real
reason.
Some of my friends have been
pressuring me to see a counselor..
Others tell me that the Bible. says that
seeing counselors and psychiatrists is
wrong. I have talked to my pastor a
couple of times, and he just gives me
scriptures to read and tells me to pray.
I am not getting any better. In
fact, it seems to be getting worse. I
need help. Can counselors or psychia-
trists help me without turning me
away from God? Are there any coun-
selors who are Christians? How do
you deal with spiritual matters In
counseling?
Signed,
Desperate and Confused
Dear Desperate and Confused:
S I am very glad you wrote. Iam a
Christian also.. I have served in the
mental health field for some time now
and have struggled with this issue
;myself. There is certainly some
Biblical basis for caution when seek-
ing counseling for emotional prob-
lems.
The Bible tells us not to seek
ungodly counsel. Psychologists, psy-
chiatrists, psychotherapy and theories
of psychology are notoriously human-
;' istic in nature and have been placed in
the same category of "ungodly" as
mystics, psychics, and magicians by
many Christian leaders. So, the repu-
tation that psychology has made for
itself among Christians has some war-
rant.
However, as we have learned
more about mental health, we have
found that many of the theories and
techniques of psychotherapy and the
effects of psychiatric medicine have
had 'great benefits to, those who are
11 suffering fromn..emotional disorders.
We have discovered ways to treat these
problems within the context of the val-
ues and beliefs of the client. As thera-
pists, we are ethically obligated to
respect religious beliefs and values
and can actually help strengthen
those beliefs should this become a
goal in treatment.
As Christians. we believe that
,every problem is spiritual in nature
because we are spiritual. beings.
Cancer and the common cold are as
? much spiritual problems as emotional
problems. We should never stop pray-
ing for healing and depending upon
God as "The Great Physician" or
"Wonderful Counselor".
But, I believe that God works
through physicians, nurses, and even
psychotherapists in healing. The prob-
lem arises when our faith is placed in
our practitioner instead of God. We.
must be careful that we keep our per-
spective in all our endeavors. Your
counselor Is an instrument to help you
achieve whatever outcome God wishes
for you. '
Mental health professionals have'
training and expertise that can be,
highly effective in relieving depression.
anxiety. stress, and a multitude of
other problems. Although many of the
Techniques and theories come from
secular psychology, they can be used
to treat Christians with Christian val-
ues and Christian goals.


Another care to. take is to assure
that the techniques. themselves, and
the goals established by you and your
counselor are Biblical and within
God's will. For example, I am a
Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, which
means I focus on thought processes,
and behaviors that affect emotions in
my approach to treatment.
In Romans 12:2. Paul states. "Do
not conform any longer to the pattern
of this world, but be transformed by
the renewing of your mind. Then you
will be able to test and approve what
God's will is-His good, pleasing and
perfect will." Cognitive techniques can
help accomplish this by idendlFyng
unwanted thoughts and replacing
them with more desirable ones.
Psychotherapy should not take
the place of pastoral counseling. In
defense of your pastor, he is on the
right track. I would give you the same
advice as the primary part of healing.
However, many times, emotional prob-
lems require professional assistance
and even medication to aid in this
process. If you have diabetes, you
would pray for healing and go to a
doctor for insulin. The same principle
applies to emotional illnesses as well.
Many times God, Himself, will heal
you. Your pastor can help you, and in
other circumstances, it takes profes-
sional help. We are all here for the
same purpose.
It sounds as if you are in one of
those situations in which therapy can
help you resolve some horrible child-
hood experiences while medication,
should you decide to use it, can relieve
the debilitating anxiety and depres-
sion. Other e many Christian coun-
selors in this area that can help you
decide what to do. I would recommend
that you seek counseling for evalua-
uon. Some things you can do to insure
that your decision is godly are:
*Continue to seek God's will
through prayer and his word.
*Seek a Christian counselor if
there is one available.
*if you use a.non-Christian coun-
selor or psychiatrist. make sure they
understand your values and the
Importance of maintaining them.
*Allow and encourage your coun-
selor and your pastor to talk to each
other for accountability and continu-
ity.
*Continually measure advice and
techniques used in counseling against
the Bible.
*Be. honest and direct with your
counselor if you question the spiritual
appropriateness of treatment.
In 1 Corinthians 12:5-6, Paul
said. "There are different kinds of ser-
vice, but the same Lord. There are dif-
ferent kinds of working, but the same
God works all of them in all men." I
believe that mental health profession-
als have gifts that can be used for
God's purposes. I pray that this
answers your questions. Let us know
if we can help. You may contact us at

nitrogen is released slowly. So, a
fertilizer containing a high per-
centage of this material would be
good for lawns helping them stay
green, without causing spots of
extra fast growth.
The key Information is found
in the guaranteed analysis section
of the label. A series of numbers.
such as 6-6-6, 8-8-8, 10-10-10,
or 6-8-6, tell you which, and how
much, of the primary plant nutri-
ents the fertilizer contains. That
is, the numbers show the guaran-
teed amounts of nitrogen, phos-
phorus, and potassium.
For example, a fertilizer
labeled 6-8-6 contains six percent
nitrogen, eight percent phospho-
rus, and six percent potassium.
Thus, a hundred pound bag of
this analysis contains 20 pounds
of plant food. The other 80
pounds is accounted for by condl-
tioners and fillers, required for
even spreading. These may
include some incidental trace ele-
ments. If the fertilizer contains
significant amounts of secondary
plant food, such as calcium, mag-
nesium, copper, and others, they
will be listed near the bottom of
J. the tag. .,,; ... .
c nThe mqst difficult part of the
label to understand is the infor-
mation listed right after the total
nitrogen figure, in the guaranteed -
analysis section. In addition to
the total amount, the label gives
percentages of each of several
types of nitrogen In the mix. This
tells you a lot about how the fer-
tilizer works.


You'll see the term nitrate
nitrogen, ammoniacal (AM-on-
NY-ah-cal) NITROGEN, water sol-
uble organic nitrogen. Plants use
nitrate, water soluble organic,
and urea nitrogen fairly quickly.
They might work well in a veg-
etable garden. But, they won't last
very long, because they're rapidly
leached out of the soil by rain and
irrigation water. On the other
hand, ammonlacal and water
insoluble nitrogen will last longer

To All Gulf County Residents

Dear Friends,
This will be my last chance to
address many of you before election 4
day, September 3rd.
When I came here and took this job
I told everyone exactly what I was
going to do. I have kept my word. I have
provided honest and professional law
enforcement to everyone. I have
worked with all my heart and know-
ledge to make Gulf County Sheriff's
Office the number one Department in
the State of Florida. When you talk to
other law enforcement agencies they '
will be quick to tell you we are certainly
headed in that direction. I have spent
day in and day out, sometimes 24 hours a day trying to make Gulf
County a safe and drug free community.
As I said from the beginning, I'm not going to base my platform
on what someone else has done or not done, or on what someone
else is going to do. What my platform is and has been based on, is
what I have done and will continue to do-that is to provide honest
and professional law enforcement to Gulf County.
As I have said before, if anyone has any questions on any
issues that have arisen during this election, please do not hesitate
to contact me and I will be more than happy to address it. You will
be surprised that 99.99% of the issues I have heard are totally inac-
curate. In fact the MAJORITY OF THEM ARE FALSE. Please don't
be misled. If you're not sure, just ask.
Thank you for your continued support. Together we can make
Gulf County number one.
Thanks again,








Frank McKehlhen



Sheriff, Gulf County

P.S. Since I've been here I have been a working sheriff. Election has not changed things.
Instead of being out waving and shaking hands on September 3rd, I will be in a murder trial
testifying, Please take this as my friendly smile and wave, and thanks for your support.
Your Sheriff, Frank McKeithen

DATE AND TIME OF MEETINGS SECOND AND FOURTH TUESDAYS AT 6:00 P.M.. E.T.

August 23, 1996



Sheriff Frank McKeithen
Gulf County Courthouse
1000 5th Street
Port St. Joe, Florida 32456



Dear Sheriff McKeithen:

In response to your question regarding the deficit of the Sheriffs office when you took office,
February 8, 1996, I offer the following:

Interim Sheriff Coats had a fund deficit of $127,054.98 (This is from October 1, 1994 thru
January 31, 1995)

S This deficit came from renovations to the Sheriffs office and Gulf County Jail. The
purchases of (4) patrol cars; hiring of additional personnel, etc..

Also, as a comparison, Franklin County, population 10,236, has an annual Sheriffs budget
of $2,594,071.00 for FY 95-96; Gulf County, population 13,271, has an annual Sheriffs
budget of $1,393,406.00 for FY 95-96.


The advertisement that appeared in The STAR, August 22, 1996, reflected poorly on the Board
of County Commissioners and I hope that this letter will clarify that you inherited an existing
"deficit" when you assumed office February 8, 1995.

Sincerely yours,

GULF COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

The
Lion"s Tale
We want to say "Goodbye and
God Bless You" to some very spe-
cial people, the Goebert family.
They have been a part of Faith
Christian School for the past 15:
years. Rev. Fred Goebert came
here in 1981 as assistant princi-
pal and soon became the princi-
pal, as well as pastor of Faith
Bible Church. Mrs. Brenda
Goebert has been a teacher in
kindergarten and grades four and
five. Amy, Brian and Chad have
been a part of the school and
church all their lives..
They are leaving us totrgb to.
Mrs. Goebert's home state "of'
Michigan in about two weeks, and,;
we are saddened to see them go.
Rev. Goebert will become the
assistant pastor of Factoryville
Baptist Church in charge of the
Christian school there. The
church and school are located in
the small town of Athens,
Michigan which is about 15 miles
south of Battle Creek.
The Goebert's last Sunday at
Faith Bible Church will be
September 15. After which, they
will be on their way north with
one exception: their daughter,
Amy will leave this Saturday to
begin her freshman year at
Pensacola Christian College. It is
with much regret that we say
goodbye, but we look for God's
blessing on their future ministry.
As Paul said to the
Thessalonians, "We give thanks to
God always for you all, making
mention of you in our prayers;
remembering without ceasing,
your 'Work of Faith' and 'Labor of
Love' and 'Patience of Hope' In our
Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of
God our Father."

The Whereabouts of Two
Former Students
Once, a long while ago, we

students in our school. Tien
Nguyen and his sister, Loan

several years. They were' initially
sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. Al
Jensen and then later the chil-
'dren lived with Mr. and Mrs.
Lamar Davis.
They dropped by recently to,
say "hello" and to tell what they
were doing. Tien is an engineer In

is teaching there. They were, as
they say, bright as a new penny,
and still are.'

to teach me 'blue' words, then

There was the middle uncle,
Bobbie Allen Vernon, (a.k.a.

scream out loud, thereby causing
the most stalwart of them to lose
their continence. Now, there was-
n't nothing wrong with him, he
was just mean. We learned real
early on to avoid him at all costs.
He had a wife, amazingly
enough, named Eleanor Grace,
who liked to sit under the mimosa
tree with other women and assas-
sinate people's character (i.e. gos-
sip.) She had small, mean, bird-
like eyes, and a screwed-up
mouth (probably from spewing
venom all those years) and a lim-
ited vocabulary. It consisted of
"Well, I'll tell you one thing ..
after which she would tell listen-
ers some fabricated story that got
better each time told. This was
usually followed by, "So, I told her
. ." Now, Aunt Eleanor Grace, if
you believed her talk, was always
'telling' some unlucky female
something she needed to know,
down at the Hoggly Woggly.
"Well, what did she say?," was
the required response of her lis-
teners, and they never disap-
pointed her. Aunt Eleanor Grace
would square her shoulders,
smile proudly and say: "She
couldn't say anything. She just

Roaches Are Not
Your Friends!!


The Florida Pest Control Assn.
pans "Joe 's Apartment" for its
positive portrayal of pests
The movie "Joe's Apartment"
in which cockroaches play the
starring role as they take over a
guy's apartment, has received a
"two thumbs down" rating from
the Florida Pest Control
Association (FPCA).
"Roaches carry disease and
can cause asthma, diarrhea,
dysentery and even bubonic
plague. They eat and destroy just
about anything from book-bind-
ings to film to starched linen to
leather, not to mention any kind
of food," explains FPCA's current
president Doug Brock, owner of
Douglas Brock Pest Control in
Lynn Haven. "They are simply
disgusting and our industry
.makes every attempt to control
and kill them."
That's no easy task. Here are
some quick roach facts:
*German cockroaches, 'the
most prevalent species In and
around homes and businesses
can survive a whole month with-
out food; two weeks without
water.
*Under optimum conditions,
one female cockroach can pro-,
duce two million offspring in one
year-an' average breeding ses-,
sion produces 35,000 offspring.
*Roaches can survive higher
doses of radiation than humans,
can, and are .much more likely to
survive a nuclear attack.
*Roaches have been around
for over 350 million years, predat-
ing dinosaurs.
*If roaches were human-
sized, they'd easily win the
Olympics-they run at speeds
equivalent to 90 mph. .
FPCA and its member compa-
nies offer the following advice in
controlling cockroaches.
-1. Take kitchen trash out daily
and carefully seal or close the
trash sack.
-2. Clean sinks and run the
garbage disposal completely after
handling foods.
-3. Never leaiv.e dirty dishes
overnight.
-4. Store food in airtight contain-
ers.
-5. Don't leave pet food out
overnight.
-6. Follow the instructions on
roach baits and sprays very care-
fully.
-7. When in doubt or facing an
infestation contact your licensed
professional pest control compa-

Now, I wasn't much for my

Five months ago I began a campaign asking that you elect me to be the

goals in mind-to provide you with information about my qualifications and what I
feel the job of this system is and to understand what your concerns and goals for
.this system are. We have talked -in your gardens, on your porches, in your homes,
Cat.he store, and oh the streets, and always your concern was that those children
which this system serves learn what they must know to prosper in this world.

There is no greater responsibility or pleasure than that of working with your
children, and the job which this system performs must be effective if your children
are to move into life ready for what they will encounter. On Tuesday, September
3rd, you have the opportunity to mix my experience and knowledge with your
desires for our school system and your children as you vote for Catherine

DoD & VA Identify Ways to Reduce


Costs AndImprove Health Care


The Departments of Defense
and Veterans Affairs have recent-
ly submitted to Vice President
Gore a joint report on ways the
'two departments can enhance
'cooperation, reduce costs and'
Improve health care for veterans,
active duty military personnel,
retirees and dependents.
The report, Strategies for
Jointly Improving VA and DoD
Health Systems, is the result of a
,review conducted at the Vice
President's request as part of the
National Performance Review to
make government work better
and cost less. Based on the prin-
ciples of mutual benefit, the
report identifies a number of Joint
efforts that will result in the more
efficient use of resources while
Improving customer satisfaction
and enhancing the quality of care
in VA and DoD health-care facili-
ties.
"This study focuses on new
and innovative ways to reduce the
-cost of providing customer orient-
ed government services," said
Vice President Gore. "It can serve
as a blueprint for other federal
agencies as they reinvent and re-
engineer processes and opera-
tions to find better ways of accom-
plishing their missions and
increasing customer satisfaction."
Among the initiatives Includ-
ed in the report are:
Using VA and DoD com-
*bined purchasing to reduce costs
on such items as pharmaceuti-
cals and medical equipment.

concerns as post-traumatic stress
disorder. AIDS, spinal cord injury
and, most recently, Persian Gulf

HOMEMADE LUNCHBOX TREATS


(DM)-Kids are easy to please when
it comes to desserts, but what goes
into the lunchbox day after day can
become routine. For a simple way to
add variety, tuck some. Chocolate
Pretzels or White Chocolate-Raisin
S'mores into tomorrow's lunch.
For the Pretzels, a block of sweet
cooking chocolate is easy to melt
using the microwave oven. The pret-
zels are dipped and placed on waxed
paper to harden. If you're in a hurry,
Whirlpool Corporation home econo-
mists suggest refrigerating them and
they will harden more quickly. The
S'mores are graham cracker "sand-
wiches" with raisins and vanilla milk
chips as the filling. They are heated
in the microwave oven to slightly
melt the chips and hold the layers
together.
Both recipes areas easy to make and
sure to please but be ready with
some extras when the kids arrive
home after school!

their cookout will be safe.

compressed into a liquid state.

^ ED CREAMER

FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER, DISTRICT 3


RESPONSIBILITY, MATURITY & EXPERIENCE


My name is Ed Creamer, and I am your candidate for
County Commissioner, District Three. I am a life long resident
of Gulf County. I attended school here and raised my family
here. We care about Gulf County and its future.

After serving six years in the U. S. Navy, I returned to Gulf
Co. and I have worked here all my life. I began working in the
seafood industry with Jimmy McNeilI, and after that I went to'
work at Glidden Co. as a laborer and worked up to shift super-
visor. As a result of a buy out by another company, I was
forced into early retirement. I had to begin another career in
insurance, and I continue that career today. Most importantly,' I:
served as your County Commissioner from' 1988-1992.1 ,
understand what makes county government work and what
causes it not to work. I want to help make county government
work for you again.

Our County Commission must take an active role in pre-
serving our quality of life while improving the services the
county delivers. We must protect our bays, beaches and
rivers, and at the same time defend our rights as citizens to
use these natural resources. Development of our county
should be carefully planned to benefit all county residents and
with Gulf County's future in mind. We must also spend tax
dollars wisely as we undertake these projects.

Let's bring responsibility, maturity, and experience back to
the county commission.

To all of the people of Gulf County, I ask for your support.
To the people of District 3, I ask for your vote and support.

23 years. Frank and Lynn have three children, Christopher, age 16, Meredith, age 15,
and Jonathon, age 12, who attend county public schools. Frank and Lynn have lived
in Northwest Florida for over 23 years and know what it takes to raise a family with
solid, Northwest Florida, Christian values.

2) JOBS: Frank began work at age 13 as a carpenter's helper (digging ditches and
manual labor) and knows the meaning of hard work. Frank believes that the greatest
material blessing that God. can give a man, a woman, or a family is a good job at a
fair wage. Frank is committed to protecting your jobs (in government and in private

enterprise) and to making Northwest Florida open to new industry, business growth
and more jobs. FRANK IS COMMITTED TO IMMEDIATE LEGISLATION TO PLACE
A REFERENDUM TO REPEAL THE NET BAN ON THE STATEWIDE BALLOT.

3) REDUCE GOVERNMENT REGULATION AND STATE MANDATES: Frank

private property rights. Frank will also oppose state laws which impose greater
financial burdens on local government (state mandates) without providing funding.

S4) EDUCATION: Frank believes that the core of a healthy and productive soci-
ety is a good education and adequate job training for all citizens. Frank will push for
a state budget which will require all lottery money to go to education and job train-
ing, without any reduction in other education funds.

grows faster than the private economy places too much burden on the taxpayer.
