Studies Being Made



For New Marina

Results Look "Very Good" So Far
According to Eniironthentt- Consultants


Divers with Environmental
Consultants, Post, Buckley,
Schuh and Jerninan, and DEP
were In town Friday doing prelim-
Inary environmental studies prior
to Preble & Rish Engineers' for-
mal application for permits to
construct a 162 spp marina on
the old Hess Oil Company proper-
ty now owned by the City of Port
SL Joe.
E Preble & Rish Consulting
Engineers has been employed by
the City of Port St. Joe to design,
engineer and cross the prelimi-
nary hurdles in preparation for
construction of the marina on the
Hess property. As with any pro-
ject that includes 'dredging and
channeling along the waterfront,
(SL Joseph Bay) permitting Is the
number one concern.
Environmental Consultants,
Post, Buckley, Schuh and
Jerninan were hired by Preble &
Rish to help with the necessary
permitting phase. What's unique
about their approach though is
the fact that DEP representatives
were actively involved in sampling
and checking the site during
Friday's on-site inspection and
study of the marina location.
Henry Hernandez. DEP
Environmental Specialist, said
DEP's presence was part of their
new philosophy of parthnring with
private and public sectors to.help
them through such processes as
permitting from the ground level,
therefore speeding up the
process, having an on-site under-
standing and often saving the
applicant money in the process.


Absentee Ballots
Are NowAvailable
Absentee ballots for the sec-
ond primary .election are now
available in the Supervisor of
Elections' office in the Gulf
County Courthouse in Port St.
Joe.
According to Gulfs Supervi-
sor, Cora Sue Robinson, "Florida
statutes will nriot allow any per-
son to pick up more than two
ballots per -election, except for
immediate family members.
Also, a written request; has to
accompany any person picking
up ballots."
To request an absentee bal-
lot, you may call her office at
229-6117 or 639-5069, send a
written request, or appear in
person, added Robinson.


Kevin Songer, Environmental
Consultant with Post, Buckley,
along with Geoff Rabinonitz (DEP)
and Chris Merritt (OAR) were
busy Friday collecting sea grass
samples, bottom sand samples,
and flushing action of water along
the bulk head. On-site analysis by
Songer indicated that thus far all
indications were "very good" for
samples and tests to place the
marina location in a favorable
light during the permitting
process.
If all goes well, permits for the
project could clear DEP within
60-90 days .rather than the 6-12
months thought by many during
the planning stages of the marina
concept.
Preble & Rish engineer, Bill
Kennedy, told The Star. "If no
hitches crop up and the final
design and planning goes smooth,
It's possible that the largest por-
tion of the marina could be oper-
ational by the summer of 1997."
Current plans call for a 162
wet slip marina to be constructed
along with 69 dry storage slips.
The dry storage would utilize one
of the giant oil tanks, converting it
into a giant metal building rather
than oil storage. A ship's store.
restroom facilities, gas and diesel
service, boat ramp and channel
are all part of the planned project.


Kevin Songer places a bag of sample material extracted
from the bottom, on the dock for testing.


Gulf County Beaches Ranked

Number Five In The Nation


Our beautiful beaches located
in the T. H. Stone Memorial State
Park (St. Joseph State Park) were
recently ranked number five in I
the country In an annual ranking
done for the travel magazine,
Conde Cast. A park ranger com-
mented that he was surprised at
the nomination and high ranking
due to the publicized destruction


of Hurricane Opal.
Locals, as well as many vaca-
tioners, visit the state park and
enjoy many of the beautiful plea-
sures it has to offer. Whether you
stay in one of the camping sites or
just visit the beach for the day to
pick up shells, you can be blessed
with the spectacular beauty
around you.


City Holds



Line On Mill


Rate At 5.2408

Increased Taxable Property

Boosts Income By 3.40%


Prior to the regularly sched-
uled City Commission meeting
Tuesday evening the board held
the first of two public hearings for
the proposed 1996-1997 city bud-
get.
The budget calls for a 5.2408
village rate to be levied against
city property owners. This is the
same rate as was levied last year.
In reality though, a 3.40%
increase in revenue from property
taxes is expected, due to an.
increase in taxable property over
the past year, with new construc-:
tion and increased property valu-
ation through real estate safes.
Three big dollar items that
will be highly visible to the com-
munity as they develop over the
next year which are included in
this year's budget are 1)
Downtown Redevelopment plans
(financed by $600,000
Community Development Block
Grant with matching funds from
the city); 2) city marina project
(financed through $675,000 grant
funds with the remainder coming
from a lease/loan agreement or
additional grants; and 3) water
and sewer project extending
through Ward Ridge to the Gulf
Coast Community College exten-
sion site (loan/grant from FHA
and local developers).
The next public hearing is
scheduled for 5:30 on September
-.23 during special meeting alled_.
for that" purpose.
EMPLOYEES COMPLAIN
Several city employees
attended Tuesday's meeting,
seeking clarification of Jimmy
Rogers' position and authority as
a city employee.

. questioned whether Rogers was a
city supervisor, his pay, how he
was selected for the position and
when.
Mayor Pate responded the'
group stating that two years ago
the board decided to expand
Rogers' duties to include employ-
ee evaluation. Stating the move
was prompted by numerous com-
plaints from citizens that some
city workers were constantly
being seen around town not work-
ing. Pate said Rogers was not
hired, as a supervisor, but rather
to report work evaluations to
Public Work Supervisor, Frank
Healy.
Some of the employees also
questioned favoritism and com-
plained they didn't get along well
with Rogers as a supervisor.
Commissioner Tharpe told
the workers. "You know we have
to designate authority." He added
that the city looks worse than it
has ever looked. "We're not getting
the work out of you people that
we're paying for."
Mayor Pate encouraged the
employees to continue to try and
work out their problems with Mr.
Healy. "As a whole, we have good
employees working for us," he
said, noung that while some don't
do their jobs. most do.
SEWER RATE INCREASE
The commission held their
.first readii'g 6f 'iTbrdlriarice to'- -
amend rate schedules for sewer
fees. The ordinance calls for a
price increase from 80% of a cus-
tomer's water bill to 100%. based
on the current cost of $1.80 per
1,000 gallons of water. It also
Includes language to increase late

911 Success

A Well-Known "Success" Story In Gulf

THE COMPARATIVELY NEW 911 emergency telephone sys-
tem is apparently., one of the more quiet success stories to be
,told in little Gulf County, where little gets by everybody. If it hap-
pens in the county, usually someone knows about it and is ea-
ger to share the information with his/her friends [or enemies].
This is not to say we are a bunch of gossips here in Gulf
County; it is merely to say that not much remains a secret for
very long.'
It use to be, that such information was "shared" first in Coop-
er's Barber Shop, downtown, but since Cooper's is no longer
strictly a barber shop, like other barber shops in the county, it is
no longer a dispensary of such "factual" information.
WE HEAR OF HORROR stories involving 911 systems in
other larger cities throughout the nation; delays in answering
emergency calls, failure to answer calls altogether, the wrong,
emergency people sent to calls, etc. In someplaces the 911 sys-
tem is a nightmare instead of an answer to a prayer for citizens
who are suffering from some emergency in their lives.
It's refreshing to hear of a system like Gulf County's, where
effective aid is always forthcoming in a timely manner. Like the
Mennen Aftershave Lotion ad, we can truly say that we needed
that!
LETTER AFTER LETTER has been coming our way in the
form of "Letters to the Editor". They contain story after story
praising the effectiveness of the 911 system in our county. Ap-
parently, we did it right.
The letters don't come in a steady stream, but one arrives
every so often and they are never casting brickbats at the ser-
vice; always roses.
; The thing we are most pleased about is the going beyond
what is expected of the people implementing the 911 response to
emergencies. Almost invariably the person responding. whether
it!is EMT technicians, firemen, policemen, deputy sheriffs; they
always seem to give service beyond what Is expected. The ones
in trouble are often seen safely to shelter, help, auto repairs,
whatever the injured one needs. That's the kind of help we envi-
sion from a 911 operation, and the type aid our people and visi-
tors to our county seem to be receiving.


Time for Signs to Go

A PLETHORA OF SIGNS invaded Gulf County this political
season. They were all nicely done, colorful signs done up in a
professional manner. You could even say they had more than a
little bit of attraction built into their design. None of your home-
made, stenciled freehand efforts marred the intersections, front
lawns, empty lots, etc. They were all reporting a message to all of
us; someone important was seeking an important public office.
The signs were so plentiful they were beginning to be ineffec-
tive, because there were so many of them in favorite spots. One
could hardly drive by one of the favorite spots anid get all the
signs read before passing the location by .
None were nailed on trees or utility poles this year. Most of
them had a patented wire frame which was stuck in the ground.
THE SIGNS WERE A novelty of this year's election. Every
candidate seemed to have his allotment. Actually a candidate
must have been considered a nonr-candidate unless he/she had
an allotment of the accepted signs. They were everywhere, in un-
precedented numbers
The signs seemed to serve a purpose other than promoting a
certain person's candidacy for office. They also added an excite-
ment to the election not felt before. And we need excitement at
election time.to encourage people to get out and vote.
We expect an invasion of signs around election time. We
have come to even expect it. It shows .an energy on the part of,
the. candidate we expect in our public servant. They almost in-
variably reflect the ingenuity and original ideas the particular
candidate is bringing to the campaign.
BUT NOW THE ELECTION is over; at least the first round is
over. Many of the candidates are candidates no longer.
It's time for these non-candidates to pick up their signs be-
fore they become just so much litter to our road sides. They were
,erected by persons eager and full of hope that they would help
the candidate get elected. It's human nature to feel a 'certain
,amount of despair atbeing defeated.
A candidate has won a battle fought every day, however,
when he picks up his signs. He has won the battle against litter!

I'


I sent a son off to college
two years ago. It was a big step
for both of us. I was "letting go"
of my first born and he was "set-
ting out" on his own. He called
home every day. If he forgot to
tell us something in the six
o'clock call-he would check
back with us at nine. AT&T
stock went up ten points. Judy
at Time-Life didn't put In as
many on-line minutes as we did!
"Cathy, this has got to stop.
We're spending enough on
phone bills to pay next year's
tuition!"
"Yes, dear."
I hate it when they say "yes,
dear". It usually means I hear
you and I will ponder your re-
quest and will certainly try to
comply with your wishes-if
they don't hamper my style in
any shape, form or fashion.


L Hunker Down with Kes by Kesley Colbert


Silence Is Not Golden


"Cathy, I'm'not kidding! And
I love him, tool But we can't af-
ford for him to call every day-
sometimes twice a day! We've
got to be sensible here!
"Yes, dear."
By Thanksgiving that first
year, and three months of hun-
dred dollar phone bills, it began
to dawn on me that quite possi-
bly we hadn't '"let go" and Josh
hadn't "set out". During the
Christmas break I gathered eve-
rybody around the kitchen table
for a family forum. "Look, people
this has got to stop. We can ei-
ther send Josh back for a sec-
ond semester or we can let him
move to another area code and
call home every day-we can't
do both! Are we perfectly clear
on this?"
"O. K., Dad."
"Yes, dear."
You're not going to believe
this-if anything the phone min-
utes increased in January.
"Honey, before you get mad, try
to remember that Josh has nev-
er seen snow before. And It Is so
cold up there. And he is lonely.,


And he's got two new professors

Spring came and I began to
call him. I wanted to know how
the baseball games were going.
Well-wait now, it's 0. K. to call
about baseball! 1 never said we
couldn't talk at all. I just didn't
like wasting money on the unim-
portant, Inconsequential, nones-
sential little things . .
SAs Josh prepared to "set
out" the following August for his
sophomore year, I said little to
nothing about th6e phone situa-
tion. It was rolling 'over in my
mind, but I was just trying to.
save on the "0. K. Dads" and
the "Yes, Dears". .
A minor miracle broke out
on campus during his second
season. He did not call every
day! He did, however, call every
other day. But listen, in this col-
lege cost scene, I've learned to
cherish any small break I can
get. I was overjoyed that we all'
learned we could go a whole day
without talking to each other.
On rare occasions, 'three days
would pass without a call.


Progress! 'Course, he didn't have
to call during the baseball sea-
son-1 called him.
Josh left a month and a half
ago for his junior year. We
haven't heard a word from him.
We don't know if he is alive or
dead, Part of the college matur-
ing process is the "letting go"
factor, but this is ridiculous!
We've tried to call him-he was
moving into the new dormitory
and they're just getting their
numbers. Why, doesn't he call
us? I know.he had a busy sched-
ule, but he can't work and study
full-time seven days a week! Do
you reckon he has forgotten he
has a mother and dad? He
doesn't have to have a reason to
call. He could just check in-see
what we're having for supper,
ask about the dog, talk about
Wrestlemania VII . Cathy
has started watching "Rescue
911", "Emergency" and "Real
Cops" to see if he might be in
trouble. You don't suppose he's

"Smudgie" Is More Than Just Another Little Dog!


OUR LITTLE DOG has man-
aged to worm her way into our
'lives in a way which you wouldn't,
believe. 1 wouldn't believe it if I
hadn't seen it with my own eyes
and experienced it first hand.
I describe her as .a "dog"
when actually she is more akin to'
a member of the family. She has'
invaded our. space to this extent.
)Rather, I should say she has been
invited Into our space to this ex-
tent.
If I 'eat Ice cream, after sup-
per, she has to lick the bowl
clean. If Frenchie brings me a few
grapes, a pear, or' an apple to
munch on, she has to have a
piece; preferably the core. If Fren-
'hie brings me an infrequent
piece of candy-one of the small,
individually wrapped pieces-she
is right up jn the middle of .my
lap, with her nose virtually touch-
ing the candy, awaiting awaiting
the grand unveiling so she can
get her share. .
If I eat it, she has to have a


piece.

"SUDGIE" IS A TOY poo-
die. She is more of a tomboy toy
poodle. None of that sissy stuff
for her. She will chase the squir-
rels all over the backyard until
they tire of the game. She will ex-
plore every nook and cranny of
the yard, looking for lizards and
grass snakes to tease and play
'with. No pampered poodle syn-
drome, here.
She has -to "come to work"
everyday and has the unofficial
job of greeting everyone who
comes in the office, rolling over


on her back "allowing" the visitor
to rub her stomach.
No one has been shunned by
,Smudgie thus far. She doesn't
meet an enemy.

SMUDGIE IS A big,. little
baby, also. She needs her petting,
and her rubbing, and her playing.
Relax on a couch for a couple of
winks and she joins right in the
activity. She'll get up on the
couch, too, and curl up for a little
siesta of her own.
If Frenchie and I are planning
on going somewhere, Smudgie
seems to sense it and won't let us


out of her sight, for fear she will
.be left behind, She runs herself
ragged following us around the
house at such times, not letting
us get very far from her, or she'
stations herself by the door we
usually go in and,out of.
If she darts outside ahead of
us and gets distracted.by a bird
in one of the bushes around the
house, or a squirrel, running off
in mad pursuit, it only takes the
opening of the car door to bring
her back to the business at hand.
She's in that.car, quick as a
wink, ready to gol

OUR STREET IS particularly
attractive to people taking their
evening walk. The lack of traffic
and the state park across the
street, make it an especially at-
tractive place to get in one's eve-
ning "constitutional', so they do it
on our street or in the park on
the other side. It's an attractive
and quiet place to get ones exer-


clse.
A few people even walk their
.dogs on our street, or take their
dogs along for company.
This is the habit for three
young women who walk every
evening about sundown. They are
usually accompanied by a black
labrador, which evidently belongs
to one of them. Smudgie sits up
on the back of the couch beside
the window and lies in wait for
this female trio and, their black
lab to walk by. She then proceeds
to take out her belligerence on
this particular black lab.
Every evening, without fall
I don't know what would hap-
pen if I were to let her out, but
she is mighty brave from the. safe-
ty on the top of the back of the
couch in the window.

SHE HAS ANOTHER quirk
which I have observed, lately.
I usually watch "Jeopardy"
while I read the Tallahassee Dem-


ocrat in the evening, after work. I
sit in awe at the trivia knowledge
some of the contestants seem too
possess.
Smudgie, however,. seems
moved by the theme song' of the
program. When it comes on at the
end of the program during the in-
terlude while the contestants are
considering their answers to final
Jeopardy, Smudgie lets go. She
cocks her snout skyward and
comes forth with a couple of the
most mournful howls you ever
heard! I don't know if the sound
hurts her ears or pleases her.


IVE HEARb) THAT a little
dog, like Smudgie, provides a lot
of company and pleasure to elder-
ly people; seems to take the place
of all their former activity.
I can see how that would be.
I'm not ga-ga over Smudgie, but I
hope she is still around when I
get old. She's the kind of dog
which would be a lot of company.

Members of the Gulf County Ambulance collision Tuesday morning, at the intersec-

Two Escape Serious Injuries
Tuesday Morning


At the Intersection of

Hwy. 71 and Garrison
Two Gulf County residents
escaped potential serious injuries
In an early morning accident
Tuesday at the Intersection of
Highway 71 and Garrison Avenue
in Port St. Joe.
According to the investigating
officer, Glen Norris, of the Port St.
Joe Police Department. at approx-
:imately 8 am., John Dillard Ayers
Ill was traveling east on Highway
:71 at an estimated speed of 35
:m.p.h. In his 1980 Dodge pick-up.
As Ayers approached the
intersection, a 1995 Honda car
was traveling south on Garrison
Avenue, driven by Else G.
Whitfleld. According to witnesses,
the Honda did not stop as it

Article On Dr. San Pedro Upsets Our Writer


Dear Editor:
I was very upset when I read
the article on Dr. San Pedro in the
paper. Then found out he was let
go at the health department They
are losing a very valuable asset.
My husband and.son moved
Dr. San Pedro here in 1982. My
daughter worked in his office
until she married and moved out
of state. My husband and I also
worked at the hospital with him. I
feel we have a well' rounded
knowledge of Dr. San Pedro.
I personally know of patients
he has taken care of free because
'he, knew they couldn't afford to
pay. I have seen him get up from

I knew Nashville was too far

told Cathy two years ago it was

boots and is hanging out down
in Printers Alley.

the supper table and meet some-
one in his office because they
needed care. He is one of the few
doctors who have made house
calls because the patient was
unable to come to him.
When Dr. Simpson was killed
in an auto accident, he was on
call at the hospital 24 hours a day
plus his own practice. He alone
kept the hospital going until they
could find someone who was will-
ing to come to a small hospital.
After he retired from the hos-


pital when ever surgery was need-
ed for any member of my family
Dr. San Pedro was always con-
sulted. Not only would he check
with the doctor doing the surgery
but he would come by and make
sure all was going well.
He is always there for my
family no matter when we need
him. I am proud to say he is our
family doctor and our very good
friend.

Why Be A Girl Scout Volunteer?


If you've been thinking about
incorporating something new into
your routine that's both exciting
and meaningful, becoming a Girl
Scout volunteer may be Just the
thing.. If you think you don't have
the time, or just can't imagine
yourself entertaining a group of
girls every week, then you must
not,be, familiar with today's Girl
Scouting.
As, Girl Scouting grows to
include a wide variety of girls, so


does the need for a diverse group
of adult volunteers. While some of
today's Girl Scouts do indeed
meet weekly, go camping, and sell
Girl Scout cookies, many other
girls in Girl Scouting have differ-
ent interests and needs.
They may want to learn about
specific careers, may want to take
on leadership roles and initiate
community projects, or may wish
to become involved in a host of
other activities. Every Girl Scout


activity is, of course, planned to
be fun, as well as educational.
Why be a Girl Scout volun-
teer? Because girls need you. As
most of us are aware, an increas-
ing number of children are living
In one-parent households and
can often benefit from another
adult's concern, sense of humor,-
hobbies, or career knowledge.
But regardless of a child's
home life, all children are at some-
risk. There are many levels of
risk, and the Girl Scout program
continues to help many girls in
at-risk situations-from facing
peer pressure to struggling with
low self-esteem, to facing poverty
or homelessness, to being the tar-
get of prejudice against their gen-
der or race or religion or simply
their individual uniqueness.
Girls may face sickness in
their families or divorce, or even
issues that may not seem as grave
but are certainly important for
growth-things like not knowing
how to dance or never having an
opportunity to be the leader of a
team.
There are so many options for


Girl Scout volunteering-you can
train other adults, handle public-
ity, be a consultant, lead song
workshops, chaperone weekend
trips, work on fund-raising, teach
girls about your culture, have a
girl job-shadow you at work, be a
translator, and so much morel
Whatever your schedule per-
mits, and whatever your "special-
ty" is, the Girls Scout Council of
the Apalachee Bend needs your
experience and skills to benefit
girls in your area. Please call
themtoday and get involved.
They can accommodate the,
busiest schedule. The satisfaction
you'll gain from seeing young girls
grow into confident, successful
women will make you wonder why
you didn't volunteer with the Girl
Scouts before.
For more information, contact
the Girls Scout Council of the
Apalachee Bend, 250 Pinewood
Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32303 or
call (904) 386-2131 or (800) 876-
9704. Or you may call the
Marianna office at (904) 526-1912
or Panama City office at (904)
271-0902.

Fla. Home Builders Want Statewide Building Code

Study of Hurricane Damage Reveals Up-to-Code Homes Survived With Less Damage


Members of the Florida Home
Builders Association (FHBA) held
press conferences recently
announcing their support for. a
statewide, uniform building code
to protect housing affordability
and to discuss their role in
Governor Chiles' newly created
27-member Building Codes Study
Commission.
Local home builder associa-
tion members and local building -
officials; from Pensacola to' Ft.
Myers joined FHBA in support of
building codes consolidation
while conveying the importance, o
the Governors' Study Commis-
sion.
FHBA leaders agree that a
statewide, uniform building code
would provide continuity and con-
sistency among building codes in
Florida's 67 counties and 392
Incorporated municipalities.
Currently, anyof Florida's coun-


Alligator Hunts Ongoing Now


'This month 674 ,applicants
who applied to participate in the
Public Waters Alligator Harvest
have begun',' plying selected
Florida lakes arid rivers.
This year's hunt, which is
taking place at 35 sites. is divided
into two phases. The first phase
ends on the 15th, and the second
September 16th through 30th. In
northwest Florida, alligator


hunters will be on lakes Seminole,
lamonia and Miccosukee.
Lt. Stan Kirkland, the GFC's
regional public information coor-
dinator, said each hunter, will be
allowed to take ,up to five alliga-
tors. The license for a resident
alligator trapper costs $250 and
$1,000. for a non-resident.

tions that were submitted by the

Kirkland said. "They were entered
in a computer and the lucky,
applicants picked by random
selection."
Permitted alligator hunters
are allowed to have trapping
agents to assist them, but agents
are not allowed to hunt indepen-
dently of the selected applicant.
Each agent must purchase a $50
non-transferrable trapping agent
license. : 1
Alligators are also managed
through the GFC's nuisance pro-
gram for alligators over four feet
in length, the private wetlands

alligator egg and hatchling collec-
tion programs.

Spotted Trout
Season Over.
The harvest of spotted
seatrout for commercial purposes:
closed September 1, and will not,
reopen until June 1, 1997.,
During the closure, the purchase,,
sale or exchange of spotted
seatrout harvested from Florida,
or adjacent Federal Exclusive
Economic Zone (EE2) water is,
prohibited.


ties and municipalities are free to
adopt any model code and amend
codes at any time, provided the
revisions result in more stringent
regulations. Building codes
encompass issues .such as life-
safety, energy and accessibility,
however, the provisions are not
referenced in one source and are
often conflicting.
FHBA third vice president Len
Tylka, a registered professional
engineer from West Palm Beach
appointed to ,the Governor's
Building Codes Study
Commission, said Florida is one
of only a handful of states pursu-
ing a standardized building code.
"The Commission said Florida is
one of only a handful of states
pursuing a standardized building
code. "The Commission is charged
with studying various building
issues from the inspection
process, quality workmanship
and how to minimize regulations
which unnecessarily add to the
cost of construction," Tylka said.
"The Commission will exam-
ine the current system and assess
how to improve the building
process which is beneficial to
both industry professional and
consumers. Exploring a statewide
building code is only one compo-
nent of that equation, but it is a
major one."
Tylka and other builders
agree that with one code, building
inspectors and builders alike will
know the rules and. regulations
without having to check on
whether a new amendment has
been filed. Buyers benefit too
because new home costs won't be
driven up by unnecessary and
sometimes conflicting rules and
regulations.
I Florida's home builders began
advocating a statewide building
code 12 years ago but intensified
their efforts after Hurricane
Andrew devastated Homestead in
1992. After Andrew, Dade County
officials amended Dade County's
building code ordinance so fre-
quently it was beyond the ability
of regulators and builders to
know the current standards.
While the more stringent provi-
sions ensured homes were built
like bunkers and could withstand
storms of the century, new home
costs were driven up unnecessar-
ily--adding an average 12 percent


more to the cost of a new home.
Florida's home builders question
whether the benefits of the code
restrictions justified the added
cost to consumers.
Referring to a Hurricane Opal
study conducted by the Research
Center of the National Association
of Home Builders in Washington,
D.C., Florida's builders said
newer construction built to cur-
rent codes is working. The Opal
study showed that homes built to
recent revisions of the codes sus-
tained minimal damage from
Opal. Even homes built 10 years
ago fared well.

Builders acknowledge that
while engineers can design homes
to withstand any natural disaster,
new code changes drive up costs,
often making the dream of home
ownership unattainable for many.
The homes which sustained the
most Opal damage were those
built prior to any stringent build-
ing code standards. Builders said
that since 91lder homes withstood
Opal damage, they believe that
one statewide, uniform building
code recipe will ensure protection
while also controlling the costs of
varying county and municipality

Hunting, Fishing Da


September 28 in Florida
,eptemIbIer ,"


Gov. Lawt&i Chiles has pro-
claimed Saturday, September 28,
as "Hunting and Fishing Day" In
Florida to recognize the state's
sportsmen for their contributions
to conservation.
"Conserving our state's nat-
ural and wildlife resources is one
of the most important responsibil-
ities we have to this and future
generations of Floridians," Chiles
said. "The conservation programs
supported and financed by
hunters and anglers have benefit-
ed hundreds of wildlife species
such as deer, wild turkeys, otters,
bald eagles, and songbirds-
wildlife that all Floridians can
enjoy."
"Hunting and Fishing Day" In
Florida is part of the nationwide
observance of National Hunting
and Fishing (NHF) Day. NHF Day
was established by Congress in
1972.
""Tfii' day focuses on the
importance of conserving our nat-
ural and wildlife resources and
the vital role sportsmen play in
conservation efforts," said Dr.
Allan L. Egbert, executive director
of the Florida Game and. Fresh
Water Fish Commission.
"Sportsmen helped start the
conservation movement. They
supported laws to stop uncon-
trolled exploitation of wildlife and
helped establish state fish and
wildlife agencies that could imple-
ment the needed conservation
programs."
Egbert said sportsmen also
proposed and supported laws to
establish special hunting and
fishing fees and special taxes on
their equipment to help pay for
conservation programs.
According to NHF Day orga-
nizers, the Pittman-Robertson Act
and later the Wallop-Breaux Act,
passed by Congress and signed
into law, placed a tax on sporting
goods, and ammunition that now
generates $3 million each day for
use in wildlife programs. The
money Is allotted to states, based
mainly on the cost and number of
hunting and fishing licenses sold.


Governor Chiles urges all
Floridians to join with sportsmen
conservationists in their efforts to
ensure the wise use and proper
management of our natural
resources to benefit future gener-
ations.

Boating Safety
Class Offered-
The: Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission is offering a-
boating safety class to the public
on Saturday, September 21 in
Panama City.
The 8-hour course will run
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will be
held at the Woodmen of the World
area office located at 2618 East
22nd Court in Panama City. The
instructors will cover such topics
as legal requirements, navigation
rules, effects of alcohol, trailering
and other related subjects.
The course fully complies
with the boater education law
passed by the 1996 Florida legis-
lature and is designed to make
boaters more safety conscious. As
an added benefit of completing
the course, some insurance com-
panies offer a reduction in price
for boating policies.
The instructors for the course
are volunteers with the GFC's
Wildlife Reserve Program. Anyone
wanting to attend the class is
asked to contact the GFC's
Panama City office at (904) 265-
3678 to pre-register.

Romaine, or cos, is not a true
leaf lettuce, but rather a distinc-
tive variety and one of the most
ancient. Characterized by their
upright stance, romaine heads
are loaf-shaped with long. narrow
leaves. The leaves appear coarse
but actually are tender, sweet,
tasty and less bitter than other
varieties. Romaine is very low in
calories-1.5 cups provides only
18 calories-and is a good source
of vitamin A. Availability is April
through August.

do more damage to long-term
health than the actual physical
degree of discomfort, report
University of Florida researchers
in recent issues of the journals
Cranio and The Clinical Journal of
Pain.
In studies of nearly 200
patients with chronic facial pain
caused by temporomandibular
disorders, (TMD)-problems *that
encompass structures or systems
involved with jaw movement,
including the muscles or jaw
joints and the ligaments and ten-
dons attached to them-UF
researchers found that psycholog-
ical effects of being in pain were
more disruptive to patients' daily
lives than the pain itself.
"Pain is a complex phenome-
non that involves both emotional
and physical components," said
Robinson, who collaboi-ated with
researchers from UF's College of
Dentistry. "Pain has a direct rela-
tionship to tissue damage, but it
is subject -to influence by a
patient's emotional state, by pre-
vious experience with painful con-
ditions and by the meaning
ascribed to the sensation."
The patients, who sought
treatment through the College of
Dentistry's Parker E. Mahan
Facial Pain Center, reported rou-
tine tasks had become daily has-
sles-from speaking on the tele-
phone or eating to taking medica-
tions and carrying on a conversa-
tion.
"Communication with the
world around you becomes
stressful because it hurts,"
Robinson said. "These incidents,
may seem small in isolation, but
the constant needling can become
a major life problem.
"The patient who believes:
their pain signals some life-
threatening illness will feel that
same sensation as much more,
painful than a different person
with the same tissue damage who
feels that they've simply pulled a'
muscle," he added.
Nearly 80 percent of the U.S.
population reports some TMD
symptoms. according to the
Lafayette, California-based
American Academy of Orofacial
Pain. Chronic pain in general
accounts for up to $90 billion
annually in direct or indirect
health-care costs or loss of pro-
ductivity due to work absences.
said Dr. Henry Gremillion, direc-
tor of the Facial Pain Center.
"That's staggering." he said.
* "Chronic pain is certainly a costly
problem, physically, financially
and emotionally. Statistics Indi-
cate that the head, face and neck
region is the most common site of
chronic pain expression.
"It is important that the pub-'
lic understand that pain is a com-
plex disorder with many facets."
Gremillion said. "And the best,

To the Voters of District 3:
THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT DURING THE FIRST PRIMARY. I NEED YOUR

CONTINUED SUPPORT AGAIN ON OCTOBER 1ST.
Although his point is not clear on some things, let me address the misconceptions and inaccuracies of my oppo-
nent and state the FACTS1
My opponent has been critical of the tax rate during my term. bTo find something negative about the tax rate
declining is hard for me to understand
FACT: The Board of County Commissioners has lowered the ad-valorem tax rate.every year for the last four
years. Although you have been told differently by my opponent (see The STAR, August 29th), if someone tells
you differently, it is a LIEl
YEAR MILEAGE RATE
1992 8.188
S,,.. 1993 .. 8144 .
1994 8.001
1995 7.819
1996 7.600
These are the "real" figures. Our tax rate is lower today than it was 8 years ago! The County Auditor says that
Gulf County is in the best financial shape it has ~=g been in!
,. My opponent has been critical of my volunteer service. He does not think that a commissioner should volunteer
his time -
FACT: I am proud to be a volunteer and lam also prpud of my support for the many volunteers in the County. I
consider it a duty and a privilege to help our fellow man; without volunteers, the County would be in a sad
shape. I do not understand how a man can find the negative in something that is so positive and necessary for
our County!
My opponent states that I have not done as much for my district as I could have.
FACT: I challenge anyone to show me any district that has received more in the last four-years than District 3.
If anyone has any doubt, I would be happy to discuss this in detail.
My opponent has been critical of the road paving project. Once again, it is hard to see where he can find the neg-
ative in such a positive issue.
FACT: My actions helped the County obtain an additional 3 million dollars in road pavings funds at .
additional cost to the County taxpayers. All of the dirt roads in District 3 will be paved and most of the paved
roads will be resurfaced. I can only see good in such actions but it is very apparent that my opponent can only
find the negative.
My opponent has been critical of the County applying and receiving grants.
FACT: As long as the grant money is available, I will actively pursue it. How much would it cost the County if
we did not apply for every grant made available to Gulf County? If we did not apply for it then it would only
benefit another county. I do not agree with many grants that the Federal or State Government gives out but it
would be foolish for Gulf County not to get its fair share! By the way, Gulf County has received over
$1,000,000.00 in grants during the last 4 years for the District 3 water systems.
Lastly, I have been chastised for not hunting, fishing, or using the beach (See The STAR, July 18th). I hunt,
and have game on my wall; I fish, and have a boat in my yard; I go to the beach, and enjoy our County's natural
resource; but I was not elected to go hunting, fishing or lay out on beach with a beer. I was elected to give my
all to Gulf County, 24 hours a day, whenever there was a need. I am at the Courthouse every day and I am in
my district every day! If you want someone to hunt, fish and go to the beach, elect someone else. If you want
someone to work, volunteer, and keep Gulf County in the best financial shape ever, then RE-ELECT me!
SiSincerely yours,

x Fla. Farm Facts
Indian corn was cultivated in
the two Americas from Canada to
Patagonia long before Columbus
reached the shores of the New
World. The first written record of
corn in North America is found in
Icelandic sagas as early as 1006.
Corn (maize) was bound
closely to the Indian civilizations.
Sweet corn was primarily a minor
or local crop for fresh markets in
the United States until after World
War 11. Florida leads the nation in
the value of fresh sweet corn,
accounting for more than $106
million in cash receipts last year.

On October 1st, we the voters
of Gulf County have a major deci-
sion to make concerning our next
sheriff. I hope that everyone who
can vote, will.
It wasn't but a few months ago
that Mr. McKeithen made the
statement that he wasn't interest-
ed in being Sheriff of Gulf County.
I suppose the $68,000 a year and
a free automobile might have
. changed his mind. I truly believe
Mr. McKeithen's heart is in Bay,
County and it was recently shown
by his decision to have Gulf :/
County patrol cars painted in Bay
County.
SSince becoming Sheriff, Mr.
McKeithen has increased the man-
power of the Sheriff's Department
to the point that recently four
deputies responded to a call of
someone picking sea oats. There
are also patrol cars parked in aux-
iliary officer's driveways. It's no
wonder that in the last four years,
our county law enforcement bud-
get has increased from $776,000
to $1,058,000, and Mr. McKeithen
is asking for more money. .
Recently Mr. McKeithen went
before the Port St. Joe City
Commissioners with the idea of
the Sheriff Department taking over
the City Police Department's
duties. Maybe he feels the people
of Gulf County aren't quite as
smart as the people of Bay .
County, but I feel our City Police


do a good job.

How long do you think Mr.
McKeithen would live in Gulf
County if he wasn't sheriff? I say
we find out and send him' and his
fellow Bay County buddies pack-
ing.
I PD. ADV. James L.Myrick


throughout the weekend will
include a performance by the
Emerald Coast Cloggers and
karate demonstrations.
Plenty of tantalizing seafood
will be on hand from the start of
the festival on Friday. Visitors will
have their choice of fried shrimp,
seafood gumbo, fish chowder,
fried shark, grilled grouper, fried
snapper, and Apalachicola oys-
ters. to name a few. The Seafood
Festival Parade will -kick off
Saturday's festivities. A fireworks

Inspections Set
The Florida Highway Patrol
will be' conducting inspection
checkpoints during the week of
September 20 thru 26 at CR-274,
near the Chipola River, SR-71
near SR-22. and SR-71 near CR-
382.
Recognizing the danger pre-
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on vehi-
cles operated with;defects such as
bad brakes, worn tires and defec-
tive lighting equipment. In addi-
tion, attention will be directed to
drivers who would violate the dri-
ver license laws of Florida.:
The Patrol has found these
checkpoints to be an effective-
means of enforcing the equipment
and driver license laws of Florida
ensuring the protection of all
motorists.

Gators Blank Havaina, 26-0


Both Wewahitchka's offense
and defensive units took a big bite
out of Class 3A Havana Gladiators
Friday night, blanking them 26-0
in gridiron action.
As if the Gator defense wasn't
potent enough, reeling off 244
yards rushing and 39 yards
through the air, their defense
spent almost as much time in the
Havana backfield as the
Gladiators' running backs did.
They kept pressure on the quar-
terback, forced turnovers, and
disrupted almost every offensive


scheme attempted by the
Gladiators.
Quarterback Champ Traylor
scored three touchdowns on the
evening off the quarterback keep-
er. Running back Ike Mincy pun-
ished Gladiator defenders while
gaining 118 yards on 20 carries
and scoring one touchdown off a
two yard plunge.
Wewa didn't take long to put
points on the board. After shut-
ting down the Gladiator offense,
they marched 80 yards in 12


plays, capping off the drive with a
seven yard scoring run by quar-
terback Champ Traylor on the
option keeper.
Running back Ike Mincy pro-
vided the horsepower for the
Gators, carrying the ball five
times for 24 yards. Josh Baxley
booted the extra point to put
Wewa on top 7-0 with 3:43
remaining in the first quarter.
Their second possession had
very similar results to the first
except it only took eight plays for
the Gators to find pay dirt-
putting another six points on the
board with 10 minutes remaining
in the half. Traylor connected on
consecutive pass plays of eight
and 14 yards to Mincy and W. T.
Wills, and strong running by
Mincy and Rodney Small set up a
one yard dive for a touchdown,
again by Traylor.
Maybe the defensive play of
the evening occurred on the ensu-
ing kick-off return when Havana's
return man seemed to have an
apparent touchdown in the mak-


ing, but was caught and tackled
from behind by State Class AA
400M champion Danny Voyles on
the Gator four yard line. The
Gators forced a fumble two plays
later, recovered by Bunk Hysmith,
to stop the Gladiators only seri-
ous scoring threat of the evening.
The Gators went up 19-0
early in the fourth quarter follow-
ing an interception by Ed Sumner
at the Gator 10 yard line, which
he returned to the Havana 29
yard line.
Wewa put their final points of
the evening on the scoreboard
midway through the fourth period
after the defense forced a fumble
that was recovered by Randall
Holden on the Havana seven yard
line. Two plays later Ike Mincy
bulled his way into the end zone
from two yards out and Josh
Baxley tacked on the extra point
to finalize a 25-0 win.
Defensively
Justin Jackson led all tack-
lers with 13, followed by Bunk
Hysmith and Amp Hill with 10
each and Shawn Voyles and

Sharks ,Nipped By Tigers, 13-7


Chipley's Tigers broke a 7-7
tie midway through the fourth
quarter and held on to defeat the
Sharks 13-7 Friday night in a bat-
tle of Class 3A state ranked
teams.
Port St. Joe fell to eighth in
the state following the loss, while
Chipley took the Sharks' place at
number five.
Big plays by both teams made
the difference in what turned out
to be a defensive contest.
Chipley struck first early in
the opening quarter when T. J.
Simmons got most of his yards for
the evening off a 62 yard scoring
gallop. The third-down-and-one
yard to go play put them on top 7-
0 with 8:10 remaining in the
quarter.
The Sharks responded with a
15 play drive that fell short when
Chipley blocked a 27 yard field
goal try by place kicker Brian
Jenkins.
Again in the third quarter it
appeared the Sharks had tied the
score when quarterback Jarred
Patterson connected with tight
end Doyle Crosby for a touch-
down pass and reception, but a
holding penalty by the Sharks
nullified the play.
Tyson Pittman took matters
into his own hands on Chipley's
next possession, tipping a Tiger
pass into the air then whirling
around and making an acrobatic
interception and return for a 27
yard touchdown. Jenkins' point
after attempt was good, tying the
game 7-7 with :35 remaining in
the third quarter.,
Chipley responded with a 12
play 60 yard scoring drive of their
own with Simmons diving over

Crooked Teeth


Cause Problems


Years ago it was thought
that orthodontic treatment only
made for a prettier face and
smile. Although beauty may be
the main motivating force, in
reality, the straightening of
crooked or misaligned teeth re-
suits in lower general dental
bills.
Teeth that are crooked or
out of line not only make it dif-
ficult for the person to clean
his teeth, but also destroy the
natural cleansing process.
Teeth need to have the bit-
ing pressure equal with a force
directed straight down the ver-
tical line of the root. If the bit-
ing force deviates from this (as


with crooked teeth) your teeth
can rock themselves from side
to side or forward and back-
ward not unlike what the den-,
tist does when he wants to re-
move the tooth. Orthodonture
equalizes the biting forces by
aligning the teeth. If your teeth
are rocked continually by
chewing forces, the gums tend
to get soft and bleed, leading
to periodontal disease of the
gums and bone.

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

Annual Coastal Clean-Up

Planned For September 21


On Saturday, September 21st
the Center For Marine
Conservation will urge the Florida
public to take part in the Ninth
Annual Coastal Clean-Up. Last
year, 22,528 volunteers collected
212 tons of debris from our state's
coastline. Over 400 of those vol-
unteers were Gulf County resi-
dents who picked u'p 5,000
pounds of litter.
This year, beginning
September 16th and culminating
on September 21st. Gulf County
volunteers will once again hit the
coast with trash bags, pencils and
data cards in hand. All data col-

were joined by Executive Director
Sherry Magilll and Program
Officers Sally Douglas and
Edward King.
Ms. Walker Huntley' spoke
eloquently of the importance that
communities play in each of our
lives. We all are born, grow up, go
to school, work, fall In love, begin
families, and eventually die in our
neighborhoods. The community is
vital to enjoying a good quality of
life, yet so many do not become
involved in making our communi-
ties better. She urged everyone to
become involved in their commu-
nity, especially with organizations
such as the Washington
Improvement Group.
Mary K. Phillips. Chairwoman
of the Jessie Ball duPont
Trustees, awarded Chairman
Clarence Monette a giant check
for almost '$20,000 in matching
funds for tfie Community Capital
Challenge Fund. This fund was
established by the Jessie Ball
duPont Fund to create a perma-


nent endowment for the Washing-
ton Improvement Group., Interest
earned from this endowment will
be used to further the goals of
community improvement.,
Executive Director Mark
McGruder recounted the achieve-
ments of the past year, including
receipt of grants from the Center
for Community Change and from
the Florida HRS. The Center for
Community Change grant has
been used to hire two youth orga-
nizers, who are involved in creat-
ing a youth component for the
Washington Improvement Group.
.The HRS grant allowed the pur-
chase of materials and equipment
to create a parenting lending
library.
Young and not-so-young alike
enjoyed entertainment provided
before and after the meeting by
community residents. Refresh-
ments were provided, and door
prizes were awarded to several
lucky guests.

ROTC Scholarship
* Cheyenne Harrison 'was
,recently awarded an Air Force
ROTC: Scholarship from Florida
State University. The scholarship
Sis awarded based upon academic
achievement, plan of study and

. Cheyenne is a 1995 graduate
of Port St Joe High School. She
was an active member of the PSJ

shields against infection, not
cures. These chemicals cannot
save plants that are already
infected. They can only limit the
spread of a disease to healthy
plants. So its very important to
begin a fungicidal spray program
at the first signs of attack, or, bet-
ter yet, even before you notice any
symptoms at all.
My information on fungicide
applications was provided by
Extension Plant Pathologist, Dr.,
Tom Kucharek, of the University'
of Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences.
When you notice the first,
signs of fungus disease-usually
leaf spots or blight-you can be
fairly sure that the affected plantsi
have been infected for at least'
three days and perhaps as long as
two weeks. Symptoms of bacterial,
leaf spots and downy mildewsi,
usually appear three to ten days,
after infection. Other leaf diseases
have incubation periods of from;
seven to ten days, in some cases
as long as from ten to fourteen.
days.-
Generally, the longer the
incubation period, the slower a:
disease spreads and the more
easily it can be controlled.
Obviously, then, diseases that
have' short incubation periods,
,such as bacterial blights, and
downy mildews, are the most dif-
ficult to control.
Other variables, such as
weather conditions, cultural con-
trols, fungicide toxicity, and spray
application techniques also will
have some effect on your attempts
to control a disease. But, the one
factor that will have the the most
influence is the time at which you
begin your spray program. As.
we've said, the earlier you begin,
the more successful you will be.
So, you should always Inspect
your plants carefully and fre-
quently, and begin spraying at the
first sign of infection. It may seem
that extensive disease symptoms
develop overnight. However, a few
spots always appear on the leaves
before a 'sudden explosion of
symptoms. And, you should begin.
a spray program before you see
any symptoms at all. Then, con-
tinue spraying at the intervals
suggested on the product label.

have appeared seem to get worse
after you've sprayed, don't get dis-
couraged. Remember that fungi-
cides can only prevent-not
cure-an infection. So, a disease
may continue to produce symp-
toms for some time after spraying.
However, you should notice a
slowdown in symptom develop-
ment within about ten days fol-
lowing application of a fungicide.
As we've said, you should
begin control measures at the
first sign of infection. However, If
you don't begin spraying untfl' a
disease has spread quite a bit,
you should use the most effective
material you can find, and apply
it at the highest rate allowed on
the product label. Also, shorten
the interval between sprays as
much as the label recommends,
and water the plants only when
necessary.

Witness

In Colossians 4:5, 6, we
find, "Conduct yourselves
wisely toward outsiders,
making the most of time.
Let your speech always be
gracious, seasoned with
salt, so that you may know
how you ought to answer
every one."


As Christians we are to witness to those out-
side the church. This is not, always easy. Our
witness needs ,to be firm, but with kindness.
God's love needs to radiate from our lives as we
tell others about Jesus.
We also need to witness to fellow Christians
who are having difficulties. Every Christian
needs the witnessing of others. Let us share our
Lord each with the other. <

S''siged, Out of Gas "

Dear, Out of Gas',
This is a common problem with
single parents and in households with'
both parents working. Running a,
household is a 24-hour per day job
and can be exhausting. However,
there are some things you can do to
make it a little easier.
First, it seems that your children'
are old enough to take on many of the
everyday responsibilities around the
house. They can all help by cleaning
Sup after themselves and caring for,
their own personal maintenance. For
" example, picking up their own toys.
cleaning up after meals, bathing,..
dressing themselves arid doing their
homework are all within their capabil-
ities.
Additionally, your children can
become responsible for washing dish-
es, taking out the trash, cleaning the.
house, laundry and other chores that-'
are a burden to you.
Having the children become
responsible for the household chores
will not only lift much of the burden
from you, but will teach them skills
that they will need In adult lfe as well.
The greatest benefit is that you can
spend more time developing your rela-
'tionship with your children and your,

kids will develop a respect for their
home.
In order to get all things In place.
you will need patience and some work
up .-front- to build in some structure
Ipnd routine. Begin with dividing up
'the chores and making a list of
responsibilities for each child.
These responsibilities should be
as specific as possible. For example,
Take out the trash by 6:00 p.m. and
. put a new bag in the can." Include
deadlines, time frames and details of
what, when and how you want them to
*be accomplished.
Next, you should devise conse-
quences for the completion of tasks.
The kids should have a reward for
completing them and a punishment
for not completing them. These conse-
quences should be easily enforced and
logical. For example, not allowing
dessert until after dinner.
It will take some time and effort at
first. Your children are also likely to
'rebel and test your boundaries.
Getting them involved in choosing
their chores and even some of the con-
.sequences can help. If you stay con-
sistent and stick to these rules, you
will find that they will respond pretty
quickly.
SFamily counseling can help in
this process should you have difficul-
"ty getting stared. There are several
:private family counselors .in the pan-
handle. Gulf County Guidance Clinic
also has counselors and Information
that can be of assistance. You may
contact us at 227-1145.
Sincerely,
Ed Dennis, M.S., Counselor

The

Lion 'S Tale

We had a good response to
our Open House last Thursday.
Students, teachers, parents and
friends came by to wish the
Goeberts God's blessing in their
new ministry." By the time you
read this they should be settled in
their new home in Michigan. We
will miss them all.
Two of Mr. Goebert's favorite
Bible verses are, Delight thyself
also in the Lord; and He shall give
thee the desires of thine heart.
Commit thy ways unto the Lord;
trust also on Him; and He shall
bring it to pass," Psalm 37:4, 5.
"Miss Jackie" Quarles will be
acting principal until a replace-
ment is found, and she will be
assisted by Sherry Davidson.
Roger Louks will coordinate the
youth school and church activi-
ties.
Grade five will be apart of the
Coastal Clean-Up this week. Mrs.
Moates' class will conibine work
and fun as they pick up debris
and have an afternoon at the
beach.
The K-3. K-4. and K-5 classes
enjoyed a visit from the fire truck.
After the fireman showed them all
about the engine, each student
put out a make-believe fire with
the fire hose. Everyone enjoyed
the demonstrations and we thank
the St. Joe Fire Department for
coming. .
The promise of cool weather
that we felt last weekend remind-
ed us of our annual fall festival. It
will be held Saturday, October
2*K, in the city park on the: cor-
ner of Highway 98 and Fifth
Street. Paul Gant will be cooking
chicken for us, so mark your cal-
endar for. a fun time with good

classes making or exceeding their
goals.' Parents and students are to
be commended for their school
spirit, and we want to thank those
who supported us in this venture.

well as in areas of health, fitness,
discipline and enthusiasm.

Will Strange Is The Fourth
Grade Student Of The Week
Bill Carr chose 9-year-old,
Will Strange as his choice for the
"Student of the Week". He is the
son of Tony and Tanya Strange
and chooses football and baseball
as his favorite things to do. When
he grows up, he would like to be a
pro player.
At school, he likes to play
with Steven Peak and Jeffery
Semmes. His favorites are: TV
Show, "Scooby Doo"; his color is
red; and his song, "I'd Dive In
Your Arms Tonight!"
If he could visit anywhere, It
would be Las Vegas, Nevada. Will
says this-"Mr. Bill Carr is a great
teacher. All my classmates are
good to me." Will gets a free pizza
from Pizza Kitchen, compliments
of Howie Smith. Congratulations
to one fine fellow, Will.
Sympathy
Mr. Kelley and the staff of
WES would like to extend its sym-
pathy to kindergarten teacher,
Nadine Whitfield, in the death of
her sister, Carolyn Wood of Port
St. Joe, Mrs. Wood passed away
on the 11th after a very brief ill-
ness. She was a very special
woman.
Donations From Paul Brent
Panama City artist, Paul
Brent, always remembers schools


in our area. Every year he donates
beautiful book marks for the chil-
dren with the name of their school
on it. He is famous for his water-
color sea scapes. We appreciate
his thinking of us.
Arthur-
The Public Broadcasting
System will be having a new TV
show called "Arthur". Our media
center will be getting some more
"Arthur" books in soon and will be
sponsoring a coloring contest
entitled, "Read With Arthur".
This contest is for grades
kindergarten through second. The
students may color, use sequins,
buttons, glitter, etc. The posters
will be returned by September
19th One winner will be chosen
per classroom and the third grade
students will be the judges. This
sounds great
Congratulations To WHS On
Football Victory
We were proud of the Gators
last Friday night and hope they
will be victorious this week as the
team travels to Greensboro.
Coach Wayne Flowers is a real
motivator to his team.

September is Community Helpers Month at KIDS
A month-long adventure into learning of just what our community helpers do for us, is under-
way. "Officer Friendly" (Michael Belmarez) came by to visit and share what our "Men in Blue" do to
make Port St. Joe such a great community. Thanks to the Port St. Joe Police Department for all they
do to help educate our youngsters. A special thanks to "Officer Friendly"-you did a great job!

Parents, please-check what

We take pride in our student
body's appearance, but a slip now
and then needs to be corrected.
Some shirts, some shorts, etc.,
border on being unacceptable.
For the most part, though, com-
pare Gulf County's student body

Homecoming for Wewahitch-
ka High School will be October
25. The homecoming game will be
against Carrabelle High School
and planning for all the festivities
is getting underway. More infor-
mation will follow as it is finalized.
Most people know that the
1/2 sales tax that will be voted
on at the general election is the
fairest way of raising the money
needed to renovate St. Joe
Elementary School. Those who
oppose this method think nothing
of paying higher sales taxes in
Panama City, and Gulf County
gets no benefit from that at all.
Please study this issue carefully.
It deserves your support.
Have a great weekly
