county Gives Pan handle Extension

Consider Whether or Not to Terminate Paving Contract For Non-Performance


SIn a special meeting held
Tuesday evening and Wednesday
at noon, the Gulf County
Commissioners offered Panhan-
dle Grading & Paving Company a
35-day extension (under the
Board's terms). on the three mil-
lion dollar county road paving
contract which expired September
4th.,
Panhandle was awarded the
contract after submitting the low
bid for the project, but at the time
the contract expired had only
completed approximately 24% of
the work they had agreed to do.
The board has issued several'
concerns throughout the contract
on the quality of paving work, as


well as the pace, the contractor
was moving toward completion of
the job.
Jerry Long, .vice president of
Panhandle, told the board
Tuesday evening that unsuitable
materials (furnished by the coun-
ty), sequencing, of work and
weather were all contributing fac-
tors to his delay on the, contract.
He also asked for a 70 day exten-
sion to the contract, saying he felt
this firm could finish the work
within that time frame.
Chairman Billy Traylor told
Long he was bothered by his letter,
to the board, since it seemed to
blame them for his delay in com-
pletion of the work.


Commissioner Warren Yeager
added that Panhandle had six
months and had only completed
24% of the work. -We need to get
the project finished," he said.
After discussion, the board
offered the 35'day extension at
which time wprk progress would
be evaluated before determining
any future extension considera-
tion or termination of the con-
tract. .
Long said .he would have to
have company. officials look over
the agreement before he could
accept the board's offer.
Commissioner Michael
Hammond opposed the board's
offer to the contract. He expressed


his dissatisfaction with roa
paving in his district, and that t
contract should be terminate
because Panhandle had amp
time to complete the contract.
IN OTHER BUSINESS
The board agreed to
motion by Commissioner Natha
Peters, Jr. to pay 506%or $125p
month whichever is less, towa
family insurance coverage f
county employees. They note
that the issue would have to
negotiated with the county
union employees.

City Approves Zoning Ordinance Chang

Agrees to "Sweeten" Contract Allowing for Hauling of More Scrap Material


It Was a Perfect Day


For an Election, But


Only Property Appraiser
-le "''C',i lb 'n :


Kesley Colbert Goes n


On The First Ballot

Gulf County Property Appraiser Kesley Colbert was the only
clear winner in local elections Tuesday as 59% of registered voters
cast their ballots. All other county races must wait until October 1
Sto be decided by runoff electtions, or November in the cases where
there is Republican or Independent opposition.
SHERIFF'S RACE CLOSE
Gulf County Sheriff Frank McKeithen came within a gnat's hair
of advancing to the November general election without a runoff,
lacking just two votes of having the required 50% plus one major-
ity of votes cast in the field of five Democratic candidates. He and
Jimmy Williams will face off October 1 to decide which one will face
Republican challenger Bob Williams in the general election in
November.
After the initial vote count McKelthen had exactly 50% of the
total number of votes cast (2.512) with Williams (1,154), Wayne
White (554). Jerry Gates (474) and Jack Davila (330) having a com-
bined total of 2512 also. This prompted Supervisor of Elections
Cora Sue Robinson and canvassing board members to initiate a
recount of the ballots cast, as required by state law.
According to Robinson when the votes were recounted the
computerized counter was programmed to kick out any over or
under voted ballots. It was discovered that 11 ballots had been
marked with ink pen. rather than the special marking pencils.
Under the watchful eyes of the canvassing board and candidates,
Sthey-were retia'ted wihth'th'e proper perittl and counted"Yesulting
in McKeithen being two votes shy of the 'cessary majority, with
2,519. Williams, the second place finisher, ended up with 1,164
votes.
Democrats Jerry Kelley (2,206) and David Bidwell (1,509) will
square off in the Superintendent of Schools' race in October to
determine who will challenge Republican winner Terry W. Linton
in November.
In the County Commission District One race. Mary Ellen
a Gortman and Johnny Stanley will run-off with the winner facing
Republican Roger Jones in November. Incumbent Jessie
Armstrong missed the runoff chance by just seven votes.
District Three County Commissioner Michael Hammond (417)
will runoff with Tommy Knox (327), the winner of which will then
face independents Steve Wood and Robert Redmon.
School Board member Caroline Norton (436),and Paul Sewell
(277) were the top two vote getters in the four candidate race, and
the October election will decide the District Three representative
for the next four years.
a HOUSE DISTRICT 7 RACE
he Gulf County voters may not have been totally in synchroniza-
ed tion with the rest of the area on congressional and state House
le District 7 seats, but one thing was certain-they wanted a Gulf
Countian to win the race.
a Retired Gulf County Judge David Taunton received 66% of the
anh Gulf County votes (3,262) in his bid for the U. S. Congressional
rd seat, but lost out on the state level to Allen Boyd and Anita Davis,
or who will face each other in the October election for the Democratic
ed nomination.
be
's Local Republican candidate for State House District Seven
Ralph Rish got 66% of the votes (312) in his race, but lost to
Dw Republican challenger Mark Anderson on the district level.
ris
or The only local candidate still "alive" in the State Houe District
Seven race is David Warriner, who carried 65% of the Democratic
vote in Gulf (3,124). Warriner is facing Jamey Westbrook in the
October 1 election to see which of them will face Republican win-
ner Mark Anderson in the November general election.
Gulf County voters also elected W. H. "Billy" Howell as the
Democratic choice for Harbormaster over challenger Herman Ard.
Howell will face Republican Bill Koran in November.


In an abbreviated meeting
which was shortened by a com-
pelling, burning desire to get in-
volved in listening for election re'-
turns, the City Commission
considered three items of busi-
ness which were on their agenda
for the evening.
A final reading of a proposed
ordinance tying down a glitch in
the zoning ordinance was held
with no objections to the inclu-
sion of a spelling out of set-back
lines for out buildings and their
relationship to property lines. In
the past ,there was no clear-cut
instructions to the positioning of
out buildings for fire protection,
asthetics or encroachment.
Under new zone rules such a
building must be at least five feet
from side and rear property lines;


10 feet where there is no dedicat-
ed alleyway.
STORMWATER DISCHARGE
Bill Kennedy of Preble Rish
Engineers made a request of the
board for an exemption of the
stormwater permit for a storage
building Bill and Ann White plan
to construct in the rear of their
business on Garrison Avenue and
First Street.
At present there is a run-
down shed in the location and the
Whites are proposing tearing
down the shed and erecting a
more substantial building in its
place.
He requested the exemption
because there was adequate
drainage on site to take care of
any water run-off. "The city can


give an exemption for this pur-
pose, saving the property owners
considerable money from what it
would cost to hire our firm to pre-
pare a request to the Department
of Environmental Regulation,
along with substantiating docu-
ments, for a permit," Kennedy
said.
The commission delayed a fi-
nal answer until the next meet-
ing, to give them time to research
their options, get a description of
the lot and the drainage already
in place.
'We want to to doit right and
not set a precedent which would
come back to haunt us in the fu-
ture," Mayor Frank Pate said.
'You can't be too careful when
the decision involves DEP regula-


tions," he continued.
ALTER CONTRACT
At their last meeting the com-
mission awarded a contract to
To*nsend Marine to haul some
300 tons of material to a location
in the Gulf of Mexico, forming a
fishing reef.
Jim Townsend, head of the
firm, was present Tuesday night,
saying there was considerably
more than 300 tons of the materi-
al to be hauled.
"Even taking into considera-
tion my 'wiggle' room, I couldn't
move it all in the two loads we
have contracted for," Townsend
said.
Mayor Pate bargained with
Townsend, asking if he would

APPLEMAN RETURNING TO OFFICE
14th Circuit State Attorney Jim Appleman was elected to
another term in office over challenger Chris Patterson. He will
serve a six county district that includes Calhoun, Gulf, Jackson,
Bay, Holmes, and Washington counties.
Bill Wright was also elected to the 14th Judicial Circuit- Judge
seat over Robert Pell.
Supervisor of Elections Cora Sue Robinson said voter reg-
istration books are open to register or change party affiliation
for the general election in November. They will remain open
until October 7. The books are closed for the October runoff
election.

Generous Gift 4L


SIGNING OVER THE DEED for property on which to build a
Gulf County branch of Gulf Coast Community College last week
was just the catalyst it is going to take to get construction start-
ed on the facility. We thank you, Trish and David, and Gulf and
Franklin County thanks you.
Oh, there are going to be a few cynical old grouches around
who will utter the unkind words, "Just look at how this gift will
enhance the value of the land surrounding the college site."
We say, "So what?" The Warriners should receive a few per-
quisites for this generous donation of the most valuable parcel of
land in their Ward Ridge tract, so what if it does enhance- the
value of the remaining land? While it is enhancing the value of
this land lt is increasing the value of all Gulf County; adding
"selling points" to the attractabllity of the county to secure more
industry and provide more needed jobs for our young people.
THERE IS ALSO THE asset of providing our young people
with place to get a good college education with the economic
plus of being able to stay at home, Housing and meals are a
huge slice of the expense of a college education: a big slice!
There are so many pluses-which even we don't know any-'
thing about-that it boggles the mind to thinkabout them. Just
think of what Gulf Coast Community College means to Panama
City and you will have some idea of what having a campus here
in Port St. Joe and Gulf County will mean to the entire area.
The gift of the property on which to build the school means
considerably more than just the value of any tract of land can
mean. .. .
THE WARRINERS HAVE solved a vexing problem for the
buiding of the college campus here in Port St. Joe in a very real
way. It will advertise the town, with its location, as well as be an
effective learning center, a point of reference, a valuable asset for
the community. The coming of the college will mean as much or
more than any other one thing which has been done to enhance
the area in our lifetime. We know that is quite a mouthful, but
we truly believe it; even though there has been a few important
innovations to the community during that period. -
The gift was indeed a generous gift, Trish and David, and we
of Gulf County thank you profusely!


Commission Spooked?
THE DILEMMA THE COUNTY Commission finds Itself in is
a case in point of why accepting the low bid very often comes
back to haunt you. The lowest price often gets you the cheapest
job, along in the bargain.
Gulf-County finds itself so hamstrung by accepting the low-
est bid-in actual cost of money-for its most recent paving job.
The paver isn't performing up to par.
Whether or hot that lack of performance is due to any lack of
equipment by the paver, which would prevent him from doing
the job adequately, or not, is beside the point. The point is, that
Gulf County doesn't have $3 million to shell out every year or so
for paving projects, so we need a firm which will perform satis-
factorily the few years we do have-the money to buy $3 million
Worth of pavig. .. .
We must, of necessity, get our money's worth.
THIS IS A CASE when the lowest bid might not have been
the best bid for the county. The bid law makes allowance for ac-
cepting other than the lowest bid in price only, and allows for
consideration of other aspects involved in giving the county a
price for any given purchase, whether it is paving or lawn mow-
ers.
It's true, the Commission didn't award this job without look-
.ing into the performance and the end product produced by the
paving firm which offered to do their job at the lowest price. A
committee was appointed to investigate and came back with a
grudging but satisfactory report.'
With the "construction clock" all but run down and only 24%
'of the paving completed, it looks like the "grudging" portion of
the report should have been paid more attention.
THE COUNTY HAD A good relationship with a competent
paving firm but his bid was a little higher than the successful
'bidder. Along about that same time the Panama City News-
Herald was writing questioning articles about this relationship,
causing the County Commission to be extra cautious. The Star,
by the way, was aware of the insinuations by the News-Herald,
sat in on every meeting, and could see no underhanded actions.
'Could it be that the Commission was spooked into being too
careful?


I Hunker Down with Kes by Kesley Colbert



Changing of the Guard


It's odd sometimes how life'
long rituals start out-"Dad,.
let's play, catch." Josh would
have a tennis ball in his hand
and literally be jumping up and
down with excitement. He
couldn't wait to get started. The'.
best I remember he was about
three at 'the time. I know his.
hand was way too small for any
of the gloves I had and, of,
course, he wasn't ready for a
real ball yet. .
But It started there ...... .
"Throw it harder. Dad. Throw it,
harder!" He would half bounce,
half roll it back. And I would try'
to hit him right in his out,
stretched hands. We'd do this'
for hours "Throw it harder-".
I'd grow a little weary and impa-
tient with my soft tosses and his
constant pleadings to speed it,
up. I'd put a little extra "mus-
tard" on one which would split
his hands and bounce off his lit-
tle chest. Whopl He'd look up


startled, but with message re-
ceived-l'm the ball player In
this family, he's the kid.
He grew and we graduated
to the back yard, real gloves and.
a hard ball.
"Throw it harder, Dad. Rip
one in here!" He'd hold his glove
chest high, right side and not
move it. I've got to throw one di-'
rectly into the glove. I'd put it
right there-and then hold my
glove chest high .. he
couldn't. come close. We called
this "throwing to the spot" and
I'd win every time.
I'M THE MANI!
Darkness and supper would
call a halt to ouSr: contest with
me ahead by 62 points. He
would cry going' up the back
steps and his mom would give
me the "if I were, a man" look
and say, "He's seven years old.
Are you proud of yourself? You
could let him win just one time."
"No, I can't. He'll beat me
when he is bigger, stronger,
faster and better-he'll have to
earn it! It's between us men, it's
/not a chick thing-you can't
possibly understand."
By junior high Josh could


throw pretty good. We began to
both "hit the spot" from forty
feet. We started backing up.
We'd ease back 'til he couldn't
get the ball to me in the, 'air.
"You've got me Dad, let's hit
some."
End of contest. "Hey son,
eat your Wheaties and come
back in ten years." See, the win-
ner gets to crow a little-that's
another part of the ritual my
wife has never understood.
High school came and I had
to get serious. He could thrpwI I
started practicing a little when
he wasn't looking. And I started
distance running because I've
always heard your legs are the
first things that go ......
"Harder Dad, throw it hard-
er!" Well, I'm pumping it in pret-
ty good and we've backed up to
where distance is- a bigger factor
than accuracy. I'm still hitting
him chest high. but he is layin'
'em in. with ease. "I got you,
Dad, I've got you!" He was liter-
ally, jumping up and down with
excitement.
I buzzed one like a shot out
of a cannon 'bout ten feet over
his head. He didn't "have me"
and he understood. I'm still


THE MAN here
We have played this game
almost day in and day out. year
in and year out for eighteen
years.
Josh left last week to begin
his junior year in college. Natu-
rally, we were out at the base-
ball field the day before "to get
one last workout in". Without a
word or a thought we were
"spotting" each other as we loos-
ened up. And he kept backing
up. and backing up ...... .
It was,hotter than usual and
I felt a little twinge in my forty-
nine year old throwing arm. And
he moved back even further! I'm
trying to be casual ,like, but I'm
working 'like a madman here.
Sweat is stinging my eyes and
affecting my grip. Gosh. he took
another step back! My next
throw came in belt high. I've got
to get it up a foot. He ripped the
return throw chest high, left
side. Is he a machine? I put
everything I had into my next
pitch-he caught it just below
his knees. His throw back like to
have knocked me down. I don't

Another Volume Of This Remarkable Newspaper


HERE IT IS, THE first issue
'of September, and it's time to'
change the volume number on
the front page flag of The Star.
This is the first issue of volume
number 59. That's one less than
60. This wonderful newspaper is
beginning to get long in the tooth.
When one considers that I
have been, the one on the hot seat
for'all but 15 of those 59 years, it
makes me long in the tooth, also!
It seems like it was Just day
before yesterday that I came to
Port St. Joe, with less than $100
in my pocket to take over this
newspaper, along with a pocket-
ful of mortgages and a bushel of
dreams to tide me over the tough
spots. There has been some
tough spots, let me tell you!
There's probably been more tough
spots than there has been
smooth sailing, but we made it,
with a lot of help and a lot of
work, burning the midnight oil.

I'VE OUT-LIVED ALL my
,original customers but three. Co-


ETAOIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey
a


stin's Department Stoie, St. Joe
Hardware and Pate's Service Sta-
tion are all that's left of my origi-
nal customers. Costin's Depart-
ment Store is no longer owned by
the Costiris and Pate's Service
Center is no longer owned by
Frank Pate, but the two business-
es are still operating.
Do you suppose publishing a
newspaper is the secret of 'my
longevity?
Even that long record must
come to an end sometime and I'm
afraid mine is fast drawing to a
close, whether I'm ready for it to
or not.
I was talking to Kesley Col-


bert the other day and he was
reminiscing on the first day he
came to Port St. Joe, 27 years
ago. "Gosh, it doesn't seem like
it's been that long," he said. I
know the feeling.

I HAVE EVERY September,
and the obligatory changing of
the volume number to remind me
of just how long it has been.
I remember when I was an
adolescent [yes, I can remember'
that long ago, but don't ask me
about something I was supposed
to remember, which happened
just last week] a man who
reached the ripe old age of 59 was


almost a prime subject for a pair
of slippers and a rocking chair.
There were more inen of that age
occupying that rocking chair than

there were who were still active.
Social Security seemed like it
was off in the 'distance, some-
where, with no hopes 'of ever col-
lecting it. That was Just money
taken out of my' paycheck every
week, in my early' years, that I
would never see! again. Now, I
have been eligible to draw it for
several years and I thank God.
every day for medicare! ,
But, I thought I would never
get old enough to have these so-
cial programs provide for me.
I thought I was indestructi-
ble. I. would stay strong and
healthy forever. But nature has a
way of taking care of those
thoughts and convincing us oth-
erwise.

BUT, ENOUGH OF those mo-.
rose thoughts. Let's think of


Begins With
something cheery for a while; like
the end of dog days, approaching
dove season, the pending World
Series. ... or ... football!
With the playing of the kick-
off classic last Friday, the season
is upon us this Friday; last Fri-
day, if your season didn't start
until the college teams started to
play.
It's hard to think morose
thoughts while thinking of the ex-
citement generated by football, or
dove season, or other fall activi-
ties.
Fall is definitely an exciting
time of the year, what with the
Thanksgiving and Christmas sea-
sons approaching, just a couple
of months away.
I think now about the chang-
ing of color of the fall leaves way
up in the mountains. The wit-'
nessing of the leaf color change is
just the activity to indulge in for
old hearts. It definitely doesn't
provide too much excitement
while providing a pleasant activi-
ty.


This Issue
FOR THE PAST few years,
Frenchie and I have treated our-
selves to the spectacle of witness-
ing the Christmas light show at
Callaway Gardens which provides
me with enough excitement to
satisfy me these days.
I don't need the "scream ma-
chine" or "thunder mountain" or
any of those famous roller-
coasters to get my blood pumping
quicker these days. A pretty light
show will do sufficiently.
So, I guess the changing of
the volume number on our "flag"
comes at about the right time,
when you think about it. It's tick-
ing off the years, reminding me
that time is not standing still, for
me or for anybody!
I guess I'll just change It to
"Fifty-Ninth Year, Number 1" and
chalk it up to another year of ex-
perience and adventure in pub-
lishing this fine newspaper for
you fine folks. It could be worse;
it could be 59 years of digging
ditches ... by handle

Auto Repair Shops Required To

Reimburse People For Repairs


Aggressive action by the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services led to the
reimbursement of more than
$78.00 from auto repair shops to
resolve corasumer complaints
about motor vehicle repaiirs in the
first half of 1996.
In 1995, the Department
obtained $112,299 In reimburse-
ments and in-kind repair services
from auto repair shops to resolve
consumers' motor vehicle repair
complaints.
Under Florida's Motor Vehicle
Repair Act, the Florida

"Hats Off To 911"
On August 27th we went to
Apalachicola to visit a friend and
have lunch. On the way home, we
took C-30. Just after Indian Pass
the car started making a loud.
noise. We pulled off at a place
called "Rosasco Realty". It was
closed, but they had a pay phone
outside. All we had to do was pick
up the phone and dial 911.
A very nice lady answered the
phone and she said she would get
us some help. A very nice Gulf
County Deputy Sheriff came to
help us. He called a towing ser-
vice, stayed with us until they
picked up the car, then took us to
Port SL Joe where we live. He was
very kind to us.
"Thank God for 911, Sheriffs
Department, Police Department,
and Gulf County.
Thanks again;

Milton Creagh Takes Gilf

County Audiences By Storm,


Milton Creagh, an interna-
tionally known drug prevention
speaker, wasn't too excited to see
that nearly every student in Gulf
County knows someone who has
a drug problem. Mr. Creagh
inspired local students and com-
munity members last week with
his straight, down-to-earth mes-
sages' regarding real information
about drugs and their effects on
the American family.
The Gulf County Commis-
sion, Gulf County School Board,
and Gulf County Juvenile Justice,
Council jointly sponsored and
diligently organized this opportu-
nity for our county.


Mr. Creagh gave crucial sta-
tistics, such as, "six percent of the
world population is American, yet
out of this six percent. they con-
sume 67% of the world's drugs."
Basically, this statistic is'mind-
boggling, due to the idea that the
United States is technologically.
advanced, yet plain stupid when
it comes to the concept of recre-
ation/entertainment.
He also addressed the prob-
lem that grandmas and great-
grandmas are raising youth.,
"Where are the parents?" he asks.,
We can tell children. "just say no",
but we need role models. Our
community challenge is to act
upon our problems now, as well


as prepare our future community
(students).
"The biggest problem is every-
body is waiting around for some-
body else to fix it. But nothing will
happen unless you do some-
thing," stated Creagh.
He also commented that the
answer isn't motivational speak-
ers, but parents, churches, and
others talking to each other.
Adults need to give kids a drug
free home because if a kid lives In
a home of usage, the odds of them
perpetuating the practice are
huge. Creagh remarked, "Give
your kids a reason to say no to
using or selling drugs, that rea-
son is you!"


<'4 6f^(^W


Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your
prayers and support during the election.
It is comforting to know that you feel the same
way I do about drug dealers and other criminals.
Politics have somewhat divided us in the past sever-
al months but noW is the time to put all of that
behind us.
Together and united, we can continue to push
the drug dealers and other criminals off our streets


and from our county. With
Gulf County will remain #1.


your continued support


A special thanks to all my employees. You have
stood faithful through it all. You have not only earned
my deepest friendship, but you have earned my
highest respect. You, as a group have stood up for
What you and I believe in. As I told you in the begin-
ning, together and united we can reach unlimited
goals..
Thanks again Gulf County from the bottom of my
heartSincerely

Arizona Workers Establish


Central Safety Committee


improvements being made to
Lake Alice Park by the City and

I credit you, Carolyn, Jan
Traylor, and Mr. Hub Norris as
being the motivators to this pro-

Sincerely,
/s/ Rosenia M. Kilbourn
P.S. Another memory-4th of
July picnics. I remember a former
State Governor's (Fuller Warren)
father was a "long winded" one.


Throughout Arizona Chemi-
cal there is a strong belief that
accidents are preventable and an
accident-free workplace is achiev-
able. Reaching this goal requires
the commitment and involvement
of all employees and with the es-
tablishment of a Central Safety
Committee, employees at the Port
St Joe plant have taken personal
ownership In the plant's safety
programs.
The nine member committee
will develop, review and update
safety procedures and policies, di-
rect- safety programs and special
tasks, rand establish a feedback
system to address employee con-
cerns. In addition, to achieve its
mission of creating an accident-

and Candi.


free workplace by involving all
employees, the team must meet
the challenge of promoting safety
awareness in all areas of the
plant. Ben Ranie, senior shipper,
chairs the committee.
With one son and another on
the way, for Ranie staying safe
also means avoiding an injury
that might prevent him from pro-
viding and enjoying time with his
family-and that includes his "ex-
tended family" as well.
Ranie describes himself as al-
ways wanting to be involved or
help with an issue, but over his
ten years of service on various
safety committees, his attitude of,
"Someone has to do it" has
evolved into, "Everyone has to do
it."
Similar to all Central Safety
Committee members, Greg Bur-
kett, rosin operator, and Ray
Ramsey, maintenance employee,
agree that staying safe in the
workplace will require 100. per-
cent commitment from all em-
ployees. "To ensure that everyone
goes home whole and healthy,
our attitude must be all for one
and one for all," they said. "Let's
work together as a team and
achieve our goal of an accident-
free workplace."

St. Vincent Hosts

Friday With Meeting


Of Gators and Sharks


Both the Port St. Joe.Sharks
and Wewahitchka Gators appear
to be ready to kick off their regu-
:lar season Friday night,
September 6, after each enjoyed a
*successful kickoff classic last
week.

The 3A Sharks and 2A
Gators, traditional county rivals,
will start the season in their regu-
lar fashion as Port St. Joe hosts
Wewahitchka at 8:00 EDT to
decide the county championship.
PORT ST.. JOE
Under new head coach Chuck
Gannon, the Sharks are fielding,
one of their smallest squads in
recent years with only 21 players
suited up for action. They will be
* ,seeking to improve upon last sea-
son's 4-5 record (2-2 in district
.play).
Nine seniors and eight juniors
'will anchor the squad which also
'has four sophomores rounding
out the team that returns six
starters on defense and five on
,offense.
Coach Gannon said several
players will be called on to play
'both ways (offense and defense)
for the Sharks because of the slim
riumbers.
Experience and depth will be
a major factor for the Sharks to
contend with as they head into
the season.
"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," Gannon
said.,
Junior quarterbacks Jarred
Patterson and James Daniels will
start the season splitting duties at.
quarterback. Neither have varsity
experience. The Sharks do return

several skill positions and a fair
amount of speed to complement

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 '
The Gators finished the 1995
season on a strong note, advanc-
ing to the first round of the state
play-offs, following a tiebreaker to
decide the top two teams in the
district, when Bristol, Greensboro
and the Gators finished tied in
district competition.
Much like the Sharks head
coach, Wayne Flowers points to
inexperience and depth as obsta-
cles the 96 Gators have to over-
come in order to have a successful
season.
"With only four offensive and
four defensive players returning
from last year's team, 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.
Once again the Gators will
feature the wing "T on their

Traylor taking over the helm at

Flowers said, "We're just look-
ing forward to hitting someone

SThe Shape of


SYour Gums


W7t


One of the things your dentist
will look for to find out if you have
gum disease is the shape of your
gums. If your gums are healthy,
the gum contour will rise up and
down between the teeth, forming a
"V" or cone shape. This pyramid of
gum is called the papilla. If your
gums have been damaged by dis-
ease, however, they will be round-
ed or blunt where the top of the
pyramid should be. This indicates
a recession of the gum and possi-
ble loss of bone structure.
There are other signs of gum
disease. For instance, diseased
gums usually look as though
somebody had removed some of
the tissue between the teeth as
well as at the gum tip. Other signs


are enlarged, swollen and reddish-
looking gums, rather than the nor-
mal pink color.
Inflamed and reddened gums
with occasional bleeding are early
signs of gum disease that should
be treated by your dentist if you
want to save your teeth. Don't de-
lay treatment, because this condi-
tion usually gets progressively
worse, causing teeth to loosen
and abscess. At the first signs of
gum disease have this condition
treated by your dentist.
Prepared as a public ser-
vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of

Preparing the Landscape for Cool Temperatures

Now Is The Time to Get Your Shrubs Ready for Winter Cold


By Roy Lee Carter
Now is the time to get shrubs
ready for winter and there's much
to do. Remove annuals that are
past their prime and replace them
with "transitional" short term
plants which last until that first
killing frost.
Among some well suited are
'the coleus and salvia. To keep
coleus looking nice, be sure to
pinch off their flower heads as-
soon as they begin to form. This
keeps them branching, well and
producing more of that attractive
foliage fhat we grow them for.
Wait until October to plant most
cold hardy flowers.
To keep marigolds looking
good, cut back their leggy stems
and deep, old flower heads picked
off so they don't go' to seed.
Properly .cared for,. marigolds can
go right into the late fall and still
be attractive. ....
Bulbs, tubers and .rhizomes
that can be planted nowv include
the Aztec lily. butterfly lily, gladi-
olus, iris, kaffir lily. leopard lily,
African' lily, spider, and walking
iris. : v :
S Now's" a good time ito divide
those summer flowering perenni-
als that 'have become too thick.
Day lilies 'produce better if lifted
and divided every three to four
years. To do this, cut .the tops
down to 3-4 Inches and then cut
through the entire clump with a
sharp knife and replant these new
clumps at the same level as they
were planted before. Planting
them too deeply will lead to their
slow decline. Don't be greedy, so
make sufficiently large clumps to
insure there is enough food
reserve for them to recover quick-
ly from the division. Do the same
with society garlic now.
A little fertilizer applied to
shrubs in September will help
them go into the winter stronger.
As a "general purpose" material.
use an azalea-camellia type fertil-
izer according to label directions.
These are non-burning and with
no exception we can think of,

young bud. Be on the lookout for ,

ba i ne Reing is u thue


bLaRs Long Live the Queen !


It was a dark day in Mulberry
history. There were those who
thought flags should be flown at
half mast. The opinion was pro-
moted by Eleanor Grace at the
Hoggly Woggly and it spread like
wildfire. The Western Auto ran
out of American flags that day
and had to order more.
Ours was a town in mourn-
ing.
You see, the King was gone.
It was January 1973, and I
had just turned 8. And Leroy
Wambles was as close to a local
legend as there was. He was the
splttin' image of the one true
king-Elvis Presley right down to
the last detail. He made his living
doing' his Elvis act- at weddings,
barbecues, daughter:'. of the con-
fededcay get-togethers, rodeos,
and the annual rattlesnake
roiifidhp in a neighbli-ing town.
Story was, that 't one rat-
tlesnake round-up Leroy was in
the porta potty taking care of
-business when the real king
showed up in a pink cadillac.
Someone shouted nito the porta
potty, and Leroy was out of there
so fast that he left his pants. So
here-came Leroy, Elvis shirt and
his frdit of the looms, and nothing
else, ..to beg autographs with
everyone else. When it came his


turn, he realized he had neither
pen nor paper for the king to sign.
In a fit of desperation, he literally
turned .the other cheek, and the
King autographed his fruit of the
looms.
For years you could go in the
den of his trailer-home and see,
tacked up on the wall. "the draw-
ers the King touched." It was
something of a tourist attraction.
But our town hero had some-
thing of a dark side. He was a
hard drinker, and between pay-
checks, he'd grab hold of anything
with alcohol in it. Some-times
that meant cough syrup or rub-
bing alcohol. And, one time it was
something that his system just
couldn't take. He was last seen
screaming, "Don't cry Daddy" at
the top of his lungs, heading out
of town in his birthday suit. He
was found dead on the railroad
tracks the next morning, his arms
out as if he planned to hail the
weekly run of the Seaboard
Coastline.
The town was in a stupor.
Despite this dark side, the whole
populace had felt he was a part,
albeit a strange. part, of their
extended family. It was as if a
beloved coon dog had died. Folks
didn't quite know what to do with
themselves for a time.


Daughter's of the Confederacy
would care to watch after tea and
cookies. Just going down the road
past the "Howling" club was
enough to give you a bad reputa-
tion in Mulberry. Folks just didn't
know whether it was all the years
of dancing that had jarred some-
thing loose or whether she'd had
one too many nips of the 'strong
stuff yet again.
We also wondered what she
had to offer us that wasn't already
public domain. But then, with
tears in her eyes, she let us know.
Her table dancing days were over.
She was going to don a blonde wig
and become, you guessed it, a
Dolly Parton impersonator.
Having all the rest of the natural
requirements in spades, the town


figured she had a pretty good
chance of making it, if she could
sing. Right there, in the town
square, she opened her mouth
and ripped into the first verse of
"Jolene". We were all stunned.
She not only could sing like Dolly,
some of us were of the opinion she
might be doing the song a little
better.
"Spanky" cried for a week
thinking about the loss of rev-,
enues. He could just see himself
sitting in bankruptcy court.
Sallie's enormous talents had
kept his little den of iniquity quite
full, you understand. But then,
- like a miracle from somewhere
other than above, his solution
came in and applied for a job. Her
stage name was "Anne Boylen" for


Our sorrow was short-lived,
however. Sallie Petrie, a table
dancer at the "Howling at the
Moon" club on Highway 18;
.announced publicly that she'd
had a ghostly visitation from the
late Leroy and that he'd told her
to 'carry on.' Since, as a table
dancer, and a pretty hard drinker,
'carrying on' seemed to be what
she did best anyways, no one
much paid that directive any,
mind. Till she announced the
final part of it. She was to carry
on Leroy's tradition arid become
an impersonator herself.
Now, Sallie was a fun lovin'
gal, from what men-folks who fre-
quented the "Howling at the
Moon" club said, and God had
seen fit to bless her with an over-
abundance of female charms. So
much so that when one ol' boy got
too close to her while she was
table dancing, she near 'bout
knocked him unconscious. After
he was revived, he told folks he
was sure he saw his or some-
body's life pass in front of him.
Her boss, Wilber "Spanky"
Turner (Eleanor Grace's half
brother) was not sure if his club,
would survive without the lovely
Sallie. Now, it's important to
understand that up till then,
Sallie's type of entertainment
skills was not something that the


some very good anatomically cor-
rect reasons. "Spanky" billed her
as the "intellectual beer-drinking
man's angel", and said if she was
"good enough for Henry VIII, she
was good enough for anybody."
Nuff said, I suppose.
In time, it was hard to
remember poor old Leroy. Sallie's
star shone' brightly, and the next
year she was the highlight enter-
tainment at the Rattlesnake
Roundup. It was generally accept-
ed at this point, that she had
arrived. Her past was generously
forgotten and forgiven, and yet
another chapter was written into
the Mulberry annals of the Weird.
The King was indeed gone,
but the Queen seemed to be in
splendid health.

Fla. Farm Fact
Early operators of Florida's,
wildlife attractions discovered
that the alligator would success-
fully breed and thrive in captivity.
Today more than 30 Florida farms
raise alligators from egg to adult.
The white meat has a fine, light-
grained texture that many people
compare to chicken and pork,
however, alligator has its own
unique flavor.
Farm-raised alligator is low in
fat and calories and high in pro-'
tein. Alligator should handled like'
fish. It is usually frozen and sold
in vacuum packed packaging. If
stored frozen, alligator will stay
fresh for one year or longer.

your cool house, a rest on the swing,. a rock on the porch, or a vote on

how great the people of Gulf County are, and this campaign has shown me

Dear Counselor:
SI am the daughter of an alco-
holic. AsIan adult, I have been
married three times, each time to
an alcoholic. A friend of mine told
me I am "Co-Dependent". What
does that mean? If I am co-depen-
dent, how might I get help?
Questions
Dear Questions:
.. Co-dependency is a relatively
new name to an age old problem.
A co-dependent person can also
be called an "enabler." This means
that by either passive or active
roles, the'"co-dependent" person
"allows" the person with problem
behavior to continue to act Irre-
sponsibly.
There can be many reasons
for a person to become co-depen-
dent, including growing up In an.
alcoholic family. The bottom line
is, a co-dependent feels "out of
control" so gaining or attempting
to gain control becomes an all'
Important issue for them.
The problem with attempting
to control others is that it is
ImDossible. We can only control
our own reactions andbehavioir. A
co-dependent person invests a
great deal of energy in making
excuses ,for others, using guilt
and manipulation to tiy to change
others, and doing things that
other people should reasonably be
doing for themselves. Co-depen-
dents also try to protect others
from the consequences of their
behavior. For example a co-depen-
dent wife might call her spouse's


boss to say he's "sick" when he's
hungover.
A co-dependent parent might
continually buy groceries and pay
the bills of an adult child. Or a co-
dependent adult child might allow,
an elderly parent to control their
lifestyle by threats of what might
happen if the elderly parent is left
alone or expected to dto duties
they are reasonably able to do.
The turning point for a co-,
dependent is when they "give up"
trying to change others and begin
actively caring for and taking
responsibility for themselves. This
can cause a major upheaval in.
families and marriages where oth-
ers have been used to being irre-
sponsible.- -
It is prudent to suggest that
counseling would help you firid
out where the roots of your "co-
dependency" and if that is indeed
where your difficulty lies. A skilled
therapist can help you do this.
Please call the Gulf County
Guidance Clinic, Inc. at 227-1145
if we can be of further assistance. .

Kindness
Someone in politics re-
cently said that we need a
kinder and gentler society.
There seems to be so
much criticism and harsh-
ness at times. In Proverbs
11:17 we find, A man who
is kind benefits himself,
but a cruel man hurts


himself."
Kindness is a Christian trait which needs to
be developed. We often think of kindness as
only a natural thing., However, I believe I have
to work upon my relationships with others be-
cause I am a Christian. '
Sometimes I find myself critical of others
'when I should not be. Jesus' loves me and I
should love others. We should be kind to those
we love.


(DM)-The aromatic, tangy-sweet flavor of.Fennel Spiced Glazed Chicken
was inspired by the cuisine of the sun drenched Mediterranean. Boneless
chicken breasts are. simply brushed as they grill with a delightful sauce of
Kikkoman Teriyaki Baste & Glaze, balsamic vinegar, fennel seed and orange
peel. Bottled teriyaki baste & glaze, a blend of naturally brewed soy sauce,
sugar, garlic, onion and select. spices, has a delicate sweetness that is nicely
accented by the other ingredients. A salad of sliced tomatoes and mozzarella
cheese accented by sprigs of fresh basil is the perfect accompaniment for this
taste of the Mediterranean.

Positive Action
Our Positive Action word .for,''
the week is -UNIQUE". Nurture,
your child's unique gifts. Each
child has something that makes
him or her special. Build on those
strengths. A child who believes he
is a good athlete, or a good musi-
clan. is less afraid to try learning
a new language, for example. Your
behavior can also show your child,
that you value his interests.

Parents Please Help
In order to assure a safe and
prompt arrival at home or after
i school care, it is very important
that each child knows by whom
and where they will be picked up
each afternoon or if they will be
riding the bus.
In order to avoid interruption
in the classroom during instruc-
tion time, please be sure your
.child is aware of these afternoon
arrangements before being deliv-
ered to school each day. Please
send a note on days when pick-up
procedures will be different form
their everyday routine. We under-
stand that emergencies arise and
the office staff will be ,happy to
handle emergencies.

Time To Call The Teacher
You suspect your child is hav-
ing a problem in school. Should
you call the teacher? Or should.
you say nothing and hope for the
best? Most teachers say they
want to know what's going on in
their students" lives. Chances are
if you've noticed a problem, your
child's teacher has observed it
too. By working together, you may
be able to come up with a solution

Hints For The Student ...
I recently read the following
14 ways tomake your child a bet-
ter student in a magazine article
and thought that I might share it
with you and one or all .may help
your child become a better stu-
dent. "
1. Feed them breakfast.
2. Ge. .them ,to bed at a decent
hour.
3. Clue the teacher in on prob-
lems at home.
4. Get acquainted with their
teachers .
5. Donf't ritcize- thefteacher or
the school in-front of the child. -
6. Don't try to block school disci-
pline.
7. Talk to them about their
schoolwork.
8. Talk to them about things' that'
may bother them.
9. Insist that they do their home-
work.
10. Limit the TV viewing.
1 1,;Let your child see you reading.,
12. Point them toward extra'
school activities.
13. If your teenager holds down a
job, keep the hours they work rea-
sonable. ,
14. Hug them when they are feel-
ing down..
These are some of the easiest
and best suggestions that I have
read and I hope that you can start


today to help your child';be the
best that they can be.
Sympathy Extended...
.We would like to send our
heartfelt sympathy and prayers
out to Kathy Thomas .and heir
family in the recent loss of her
father.

that particular grading period.

tions regarding your child's

Quips From Kindergarten
As students leave the play-
ground or enter their classrooms,
the teachers are standing at the
doors, usually with a smile on
their faces. As Allsa Walker was
standing at her door, one little
tyke, Kayla Minger, put her hands
on her hips and exclaimed in a
very enthusiastic manner, "I Just
have to tell you-your room is
gorgeous"

"Did you vote?'
Not how did, you vote, just did
you vote? It is certainly one of the
greatest privileges of being an
American citizen. Yes, many times
you feel like your vote doesn't
count, or your vote may be wast-
ed, and .you probably think,
"What's the use?"
But, being able 'to cast your
vote for someone (or maybe in
some cases against someone) is a
right that people in many coun-
tries do not enjoy. Adults voting
responsibly encourages young
people to vote. Hopefully, they will
vote for the right reasons-about
issues and performance, rather
than appearances and promises."

Friday night in St. Joe at 7:00
central time, the Gators open reg-
ular play against the Sharks. Be
there to support the team-we
may not win all the time, but
when we do win, don't you wish
you had been there?
It's always a good show, and
bragging rights for the year are on-

Joe High plans to. charge $4.00 at

As is usually the case, there
are some who always fuss about
the prices that must be charged
at the gate for football, volleyball,
etc. It's true that sometimes it is
necessary to go up a dollar here or
there, but we try to keep prices
down.
