During Tuesday evening's
public hearing on the county's
proposed 1996-97 budget, Gulf
County Commissioners revealed
plans to lower county property
taxes for the third time in the past
four years.
This year's budget proposes a
village rate of 7.600 mills to
finance the, property tax portion
down from 7.819 mills in the 95-
96 budget. Property valuation
increases due to new construction
and purchases plugged into the
village index established a roll
back rate of 7.609 mills, which is
slightly higher than the county's
proposed 7.600 mills.
Commissioners tentatively
adopted the budget and fire dis-
tricts pending the outcome of the
final public hearing set for
October 8th at 5:01 p.m., prior to

Mexico Beach Completes Financial Arrangements For Sewer


The Mexico Bfeach City Com-
mission formally accepted a fi-
nancial plan for financing the
city's portion of the new county-
sponsored advanced sewer treat-
ment plant to serve four Bay
County communities, which in-
cluhies Mexico Beach.
In a special meeting held Fri-


day morning at 9:00 a.m., the
commission agreed unanimously
to accept a financial plan which
would entail three sources for
paying for the new advanced
treatment utility.
The financial plan involves
participation in a.bond issue, re-
ceiving money from a grant, as


well as a low interest government
loan to pay their $8.6 million
share of the cooperative. under-
taking.
The beach community will
participate in the Gulf Breeze
Bond Pool to the tune of $4 mil-
lion to finance the pipeline from
Mexico Beach to the Tyndall Air


Force Base treatment plant. From:
this point their effluent will be
piped, along with Tyndall's efflu-
ent, to the new treatment facility
at Military Point.
The recent approval of a $2.3-
million grant will help pay for the
collection system and operation
start-up. A matching $2.3 million
low interest government loan will
provide the remainder of the fi-
nancing necessary to make the
project possible.
John Mclnnis. City Manager
for Mexico Beach, said, "We are
currently working on engineering
aid design for this long-hneeded
project. Approval of financing al-
lows us to go ahead with the in-
stallation, full speed!"
The design for the system is
being done by Baskerville Dono-
van, Engineers, which also hap-
pens to be the County's engineer-
ing firm. and the lead engineering
firm on the entire project.

man for the Board of County
Commissioners, of Gulf County,
for the coming fiscal year. Peters,
a veteran in the office of County
Commissioner from District Four,
will take over 'his new duties at
the meeting of October 8.
Peters has served the Board

already approved by the board.
During Tuesday's meeting, the
board approved the construction
of a 10.000 square foot building,
awarding the $90,000 construc-
tion bid to Fisher: Construction
Company.
Plans are to construct the
building on county property locat-
ed on the west side of the court-
house complex. It will house sev-
eral of the board departments
(Building Department, Emergency
Management, Water Department,
Administrator, Solid Waste,
Veterans Service, etc.) as well as
include a conference room for
public board meetings.
The other major expense was
the purchase approval of a
$55,000 emergency generator to
provide emergency power for
Emergency Management and
other emergency services in the
courthouse. Approximately half of
the generator purchase will be
financed through Emergency
Management grant funds.
Gulf Doesn't Make Vets
Nursing Home Location List
Gulf County Veterans Service
Officer Bo Williams reported to
the board Tuesday that Gulf
County had failed to make the
"top five" on the Veterans Nursing
Home Site Selection Committee's
list '* -
Williams had organized coun-.
ty efforts to lure the veterans to
Gulf County. but Judging from the
selections the committee made, it
was obvious that they intended
on locating the nursing home In
the middle to southern portion of
Florida. Pasco County topped the
list of five sites to be recommend-
ed to the Florida Cabinet next
month, but the other four selec-
tions also are located in that gen-
eral section of the state.
Gulf finished the selection
process ranked at #15 out of a
possible 17 sites to be selected
from. Williams did leave the board
with a glimmer of hope for the
future stating that future plans
for veterans nursing home con-
struction will probably call for a
site selection somewhere in the
Panhandle area.
Question Mobile Home Policy
Board Chairman Billy Tray-
lor, quizzed County Chief
Administrator, Don Butler, con-
cerning the logic of federal regula-
tions requiring mobile homes set
up in Gulf County to meet Zone 3
building requirements when
mobile homes built prior to July
13, 1994 don't have to meet the
regulation.
Traylor told the board and
Butler that the. policy encouraged
an influx of old mobile homes to
the county that don't have to meet
the specifications required under
the Zone 3 regulations. "An old
trailer that looks bad can be
brought in and set up, but a new
one that fails to meet require-
ments can't," Traylor said.
Zone 3 regulations require
that mobile homes are built to
withstand 110 m.p.h. plus winds.
Gulf and Franklin counties are
the only two counties in the
Panhandle that fall under the fed-
eral regulations, but it only regu-
lates mobile homes built after
July 13, 1994.
Traylor's intent was not to
have the restriction lowered but
rather to suggest the county look
into tighter restrictions on older
mobile homes that are being
allowed to set up in the county.
Commissioner Warren Yeager
suggested that Butler evaluate
the county's options and bring
some recommendations back to
the board concerning the issue.

Second Round I


ONCE AGAIN THIS YEAR we have the responsibility and op-
portunity to go to the polls next Tuesday and cast our vote for
some of the candidates whose names appear on the primary bal-
lot. The balloting exercise is a further winnowing out of the can-
didates until, on November 5, we will have the final say-so in the
selection of the person who Will represent us in the several dif-
ferent offices being decided this year-including the President of
this great nation of ours.
Let's see if we can't muster more than 59% of our electorate
going to the polls!
We sent exactly 59% to the polls on September 3, the first
primary election, in order to bring the selection down to its
present state.: It's time to pare the lists down even further.
THERE'S NO NEED TO remind you that those candidates
who are still in the running, have worked long and hard and
spent a considerable amount of money, getting to this point in
the elective process. Now, it's up to us to make a selection; put
some out of their misery 'and keep the hopes of a smaller num-
ber, still alive.
We owe them that much.
It has been a long, hard campaign, fought cleanly and the is-
sues discussed and re-discussed. We don't know when we've
ever seen a cleaner campaign waged for the several offices be-
coming vacant. We don't know when we have had a field of so
many good candidates. Let's reward those still in the running
with our visit to the polls.
WE OWE IT TO ourselves, too. We fill the position of employ-
ers to the several seeking public jobs. We would hardly accept
anyone on our private payroll without our approval being voiced
or our denial being expressed.
Why, then, do we even consider NOT voting? Shouldn't we
have the same considerations for our public positions as we
would have for our private ones? Certainly, as much, or even
more, is at stake here.
Let's hike that percentage of participants in the electoral pro-
cess to 75%. at least! It should be even higher, you know.



Superlative Beaches

NOW, THE NATION KNOWS what we knew to be true all
along. We have some of the most beautiful beaches to be found
anywhere! Of course, we are prejudiced to that fact, but it's offi-
cial now. The prestigious travel magazine Conde Cast has made
the designation, ranking our beaches as number five-so far as
desirability is concerned-in the nation. That designation takes
in a far piece the other side of Wewal Keep in mind that takes in
Miami, the beaches of California, Atlantic City, Martha's Vine-
yard, and other famous beach vacation spas.
While the beaches at T. H. Stone State Park attracted this
high rating among Its peers, the fact is also one of the best-kept
secrets around! If it were advertised to the point of being com-
mon knowledge, you couldn't fight the visitors off.
EVEN HURRICANE OPAL, in the fall of 1995. couldn't
change this designation, or detract from it. The title wasn't
earngjip.m h1e "make-up".man.has applied. The beauty ismore
an B de'ep;, dli -/st gddl'the way-to 1the'b ne! .'. -- '.' '. -
We are capable of erasing that superratit'e designation,' you
know. All we have to do is create more of the "attractions" to our
beach communities. In an attempt to make their beaches more
attractive, the Miamis, the Atlantic Cities, the California beach-
es, the Martha's Vineyards, have all developed their beautiful
beaches to an untimely death. Let's not make the same mistake
here.
Let's keep, as much as possible, the wilderness charm which
is so attractive. Let's limit the commercialism to the point of pro-
viding only what is necessary and not indulge in over-kill. This
has happened in even such places as Panama City Beach.
WE ENJOY THE PRESENT charm and usefulness of our
beaches. Where can you set up and go fishing, cast-netting,
crabbing or even picking up seashells along these other beach-
es? You cari perform these activities-as well as enjoy the obvi-
ous recreation of swimming-almost anywhere a person would
desire on Gulf County beaches, and enjoy yourself in the process
without undue concern over one's safety.
By the way, this 'isn't the first time we have received this des-
ignation. To prove that our choice for the accolades was no
fluke, we have received this designation before! It hardly comes
as any surprise or stupendous revelation to any of us who live in
Gulf County.


L IA



............ ......


I've been watching a series on
PBS for the last twenty-three
nights in a row entitled, "The
West". It has left me a little con-
fused. It started out with Lewis
and Clark and their expedition
from St. Louis to the great unex-
plored Northwest Territory in
1804. That part was O.K. if you
liked all the drawings and could
stomach eating the dog meat.


Lewis and Clark got along well
with most of the Indians, who I'm
sure took pity on these pale, sick
looking, funny dressed Intruders
with the strange customs and
costumes.
The Thomas Jefferson-sent
out-expedition took exhaustive
notes which have given us a com-
prehensive first look into the wild
land west of the Mississippi River.
It'also took them two years to get
to the coast and back. I figure,
they had car trouble, overstayed
their welcome in each Indian
camp or didn't take 1-70.
It was interesting, informative
and educational T.V. viewing


which I think Is a major goal of
PBS.
I also enjoyed and learned
from the segment on Brigham
Young and the Mormons pushing
into the valley of the Great Salt
Lake. The series went up close.
and personal as Sam Houston
and the Texicans avenged the,
Alamo and ran Santa Anna and
his men back to Mexico City. The
Indians finally "won a big one" up
by the Little Big Horn River. Sad-
ly, it was this very wipe out of
Custer and his men that turned
the sentiment of the American
public against the Indian and
forced the leaders in Washington


to search for a "final solution".
See how much you can learn
from public television!
My confusion arose over that
section on the cowboys. See. I'm
not up on Lewis and Clark,
Mountain Meadow, Jim 'Bowie,
Sitting Bull or Wounded Knee,
but listen here-I know some-
thing about the real west cow-
boys. I almost was one!
I was just barely past the
learning to walk stage when I dis-
covered the first real plus to hav-
ing a brother five years older than
me ('course, today. Leon tells eve-
ryone that we are identical
,'twins)-he' introduced me to the
Saturday afternoon moving pic-
ture show. I sat front row center,
enthralled week after week as
Johnny Mack Brown, Wild. Bill El-
liott, Hopalong Cassidy, Red Ryd-
er, Allan "Rocky" Lane, Whip Wil-
son and my all-time favorite,
Lash LaRue chased down Roy
Barcroft and his band of hooli-
gans.
I would applaud with the rest
of the theater when Roy would
jump on Trigger and ride out to
intercept the land grabbing cattle:
rustlers and save the ranch, the
range, the water rights and the
good looking cowgirl just back'
form New York who didn't realize
her foreman had "thrown In" with
the evil Barcroft.
I would go home each Satur-
day and practice my quick draw.
I'd fashion a whip out of an old
piece of rope and "pop" Dad's
prize chickens "off the street". For
supper I'd want nothing but "beef
and beans". I saw "Under Monta-,
na Skies" and figured I'd be hea-
din' out that way In a few years .

I majored in cowboyology.
This PBS documentary spent
a whole hour on the cattle drives
up the Goodnight-Loving trail and
did not mention Gil Favor one
time! They didn't even show a pic-
ture of Clint Eastwood. Amazing!
They did menUon that swollen
streams made crossings -danger-
ous. Well, at least they got that
right ..
We saw pictures of cowtown
after cowtown-no Matt Dillon,
no "Hoot" Gibson, no Rory Cal-
houn, no Randolph Scott, no Au-
die Murphy-I tell you, this thing
was a hoax! The narrator went on
and on about the' spirit of the
west and the complexity of the
differeiit peoples pouring into the
frontier towns. Lea'e It to T.V. to
complicate the whole story way
out of whack-listen, the good
guys wore white hats. And, no
matter what you thought of the
thin mustache, nice dressed,
black-hat-wearing saloon owner
who appeared to befriend, you
when you first hit town-watch
out, he's after the deed to your

We Took A Trip To Washington.


. State, Not D.C.


DID YOU NOTICE? Frenchie
and I weren't here a week ago
when the paper was made up for
printing. We took a flying trip to
Washington state to visit with one
of her sisters and her husband.
We actually took another of
our infrequent vacations. This
makes the fourth week-long trip
we've taken in the past 44 years.
It's not 'as if we" were perpetual

we're going to miss -Wednesdays

I don't know whether or not it

but it certainly did us some good!

WE LEFT WEDNESDAY


ETAOIN SHRDLU


/ By Wesley Ramsey
'


,morning, September 11 at 10:00
a.m., crawling on one of Delta's
big birds in Panama City, stopped
for a very few minutes in Atlanta,
then on to Salt Lake City, Utah,.
for another change and then on
to Spokane; Washington--our
destination-arriving at 6:00
p.m., our time.
Well at 6:00 p.m., I'm think-
ing, "Supper Time"I However, it
was orily 3:00 p.m., Spokane
time, and the shank of the after-
noon. It was nearly 10:00 o'clock,
Port St. Joe, time, before we ate
supper. You could have served
me a fricasseed shoe sole by that
time, and it would have tasted
good!


All I had eaten was the lunch
they served us on the "dinner
flight" advertised between Atlanta
and Salt Lake City. They served
us a child's portion of salad and
some sort of pasta dish. It was
tasty, but inadequate to tide me
over until 10:00 p.m.; you under-
'stand.

SALT LAKE CITY is a dreary
looking place from. the vantage
point of the airport. The only
trees I could see growing were the
ones home owners had planted in
Their yards.
Salt Lake City is surrounded
by a semicircle of mountains and


closed in by Great Salt Lake on
the south. From my vantage point
of the middle seat in a row of
eight seats across in the rear of
the plane, it. seemed like Great
Salt Lake was larger than St. Joe
Joseph's Bay! It was a nice size
body of salt water.
Atlanta was as rushed as
ever, giving just a minimum of
enough time to change planes.
On the return, traffic was stacked
up over Atlanta, delaying us in
landing until we had only 10 min-
utes to go from concourse A to
concourse C in our plane change.
Delta proved .they truly did
like to fly, however, by whisking
us downstairs from concourse A,
loading us in a car, and whisking
us across the airplane parking lot
to concourse C, where we board-
ed our plane from outside the en-
try-way just as they.were closing
the door.
Our flight from Salt Lake City
to and from Atlanta was on an L-
1011. The plane holds nearly 400
passengers and it was sold out


going both directions. I don't see
how any piece of machinery can
scoot down the run-way as fast
as that one did, eventually' lifting
a load of that many people into
the air, or landing smoothly, but
it did, with hardly a bump!

THE WEATHER IN Spokane
was just right. It came a cool
snap the final two days we were
there and did what the ones who
live there called "rain"! Their rain
is more like our slow drizzle or
heavy fog. We were barbecuing a
slab of fresh salmon out on the
back porch Monday evening and
looked off to the west where rain
clouds were hovering. One could
see the rain falling from the
cloud, but it evaporated about
half-way to the ground.
They get only an average of
13 inches a year in Spokanel We
sometimes get that much in a
day!
It was 36 degrees the morn-
ing we left; and I was perfectly
comfortable in a sweater!


MY BROTHER-IN-LAW took
me fishing while we were there.
We drove for 16 miles through a
wheat field, before arriving at the
lake. There were wheat fields for
as far as the eye could see in eve-
ry direction, planted on rolling
hills, much like Tallahassee's ter-
rain. There's not enough rainfall
to cause appreciable erosion of
the fields.
We arrived. at the lake, which
stretched through a canyon for
several miles and was about a
half mile wide. There were no
trees around the lake, but it was
surrounded by a rock wall which
extended straight up as high as
80 feet or so in the air.
That lake was over 230 feet
deepI
We didn't do any bottom fish-
ing, needless to say, but trolled
for about a half day, catching-a
species called "brown trout".
It was a definite adventure,
after fishing in sloughs off the
Brothers Riverl

Fledgling T4

"Nipped In
A group of teenagers attempt-
ing to portray themselves as "gang
members" has hopefully been
"nipped in the bud" by their arrest
Monday. Rumor had been circu-
lating since the beginning of
school about a small group of
teens trying to organize a local
gang.
Due to the high moral charac-
ter of the Port St. Joe High School
student body, the J"group" had
very little or no support within the
high school.
Deputies from the Gulf
County Sheriffs Office learned
that three of the group had pos-

session of a sawed off shotgun
this weekend. All three were
arrested Monday and charged
with possession of a short barrel
shotgun. They were each detained
and placed in juvenile detention
in Panama City.
Also additional charges are
pending with the Port St. Joe
Police Department concerning
some recent graffiti activity by
the small group.
The Gulf County Sheriffs
Office as well as the Gulf County
School System will continue to
join together to deter any further
so-called "gang activity".

Operation
Kiwanians were introduced to
Hospice of Northwest Florida,
Inc., a comparatively new organi-
zation to this part of the state
with a, unique mission, at their
regular meeting Tuesday.
The director of the recently
expanded service into the Gulf
County area, Shella Glover, told
her audience that only terminally
ill people were eligible for their
services. The service is sanc-
tioned by every hospital but one
In the 10-county area in which
they serve, including Gulf Pines
Hospital of Port St. Joe, with
whom they had recently signed a
contract for referrals.
The speaker said they accept
patients who have a life expectan-
cy of six months or less and try to
make the dying process as com-
fortable as possible for the pa-
tient, as well as the patient's
loved ones who survive. They are
fully accredited by Medicare and
Medicaid and are governed by
strict rules, just as any other ac-
ceptable medical service.
'We are a not-for-profit or-
ganization whose goal is to care
for the, terminallyll patient who
desires to die at home," the
speaker said. '"We offer the care
necessary for them to' do so, al-
though we also have patients in
hospitals and nursing homes."
Hospice provides professional
care such as regular visits by, a
registered nurse to administer
medication, etc., under the direc-
tion of a medical director. Hos-
pice also provides the additional
service of bereavement and chap-
lain services both to the patient
and his/her family.
"All of this is made available
to anyone who needs the service
at the rate Medicare, Medicaid, or
insurance provides for the care.
There are no extras to pay for. If a
person is not covered by these
services and needs our ministra-


At Tuesday'
tons, they are available; medica-
tions, special equipment and all,"'

To: Our Friends in Gulf County:

Four years ago we arrived in Gulf County. Little did either of
us realize that we were about to embark upon the most
rewarding experience of our lives.

The Florida Department of Corrections had tasked me with
the initial opening, staffing and operation of Gulf
Correctional Institution. Lynne had decided to enter Gulf
Coast Community College and work toward a Registered
Nursing degree. Our tasks are completed and my career is
moving us to Raiford, Florida.

The friendships we have developed and the outpouring
warmth of Gulf County has given us the feelings that we
have been members of this community all of our lives. The
people of this area are very, very special-and fortunate to
live here.

We would like to sincerely thank all of our Gulf County
friends, Sheriff McKeithen's office, the Gulf County
Commission, the City of Wewahitchka and Port St. Joe
Commissions, the mayors, the Wewahitchka State Bank, the
Wewahitchka and Gulf County Chambers of Commerce, the
Worship Center, Wewa/Gulf County EMS, Gulf County
Rescue, City DOT Departments, the Wewahitchka Medical
Center, Cypress Medical Center, the Gulf Pines Hospital, the
Gulf Coast Electric Coop, The Star; the Wewa News, FHP, Port
St. Joe PD, FMP, GFFC, the entire Gulf County School
System, the Health Department, GCCC, and the incredible
Steam b&fe'c1lence at Gulf Correctional Institutin, cGulf
Forestry Camp and Franklin Work Camp for your support.

We leave Gulf County with one consolation, that we shall
return for my retirement and as residents in the not too dis-
tant future.'

Ron and Lynne McAndrew

Every Generation Has Its "Atom Bomb"


Dear Editor:
To. The young people of Port
St.Joe. ..,
Having recently heard several
young people express fear that
they would have no future:
because of the Atom Bomb.
When I was a young girl, we
r had enough poison gas to kill
every man, woman & child A bour,
world. We too heard this rhetoric
that we had no future.
Believe me, when I say that
this will not happen for the fol-


lowing reasons. ,
' Some power mad person, has
to have people to rule. If like In
the poison gas situation they
would even consider the bomb.
The land would be poisoned for
hundreds of years, rendering it
useless to them, people would be
destroyed or rendered uslles
because of disabilities.
Young people this rumor has
been since time. I am 66 years of
age & still here. So you see I had
a future & so do you.


Stay in school, respect your
teachers, leam every thing you
can, so that you can go on &
make this, United States of
America a wonderful productive
place to raise your family.
We,are blessed by our young
folks. they mostly are kind, & car-
ing, giWng of themselves.1 "
Let us the adults, respect &
help our young people giving
them an example instead of
preaching & rhetoric.

Dear Gulf County Citizens,

I hope this finds you doing
well. As you know, there
are only six days left for you
to decide how to cast your
very important vote.

IMany people have.called ,,,
:;'.xani" A and stopped by, concerned.
about the last minute politi-
.. cal rumors, mail-outs, and
hand-outs, attacking me
and the Gulf County
.,,, Sheriff's Office.

First of all, thank you for your concern and
support. But I made it perfectly clear from the
beginning, I would run my campaign based on
what I have done, and will continue to do, for
Gulf County.

"I WILL NOT LET MY POLITICAL AMBITION
OVERRIDE MY INTEGRITY."

As far as the personal attacks, I think Abraham
Lincoln summed it up appropriately when hAe
said, "If I were to try and read, much less answer, ,
all the attacks made on me, this office might as
well be closed for any other business. I do the best
I know how-the very best I can; and I mean to
keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me
out alright, what is said against me won't amount
to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, 10
angels saying I was right would make no differ-
ence."

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart
for your prayers and support, and remember
to please vote October 1st.

Your Sheriff

industry in Florida.
As this industry continues to
grow in Florida, and as we begin
to oversee who gets into it, it's
especially important that con-
sumers know about viaticals.
Specifically, they involve the sale
of your life insurance policy to a
viatical settlement company for
cash.
As the seller, you are referred
to as the aviator. You may sell
your policy directly or through a.,,,,
licensed broker to a settlement
company. The company, in turn,
may sell your policy to investors.
The company, or investors become
the "beneficiary" of the policy.
They pay premiums, and collect
upon the death of the original pol-
icyholder.
Since the first viatical con-
tracts in Florida were seen in
Miami around 1989, the industry
has been unregulated. But under
the newly enacted Viatical
Settlements Law, regulators will
require both provider companies
and brokers to be licensed. The
insurance department will scruti-
nize all applicants 1or competen-
cy, honesty and anypast criminal
violations.
Additionally, the viatical law
guarantees a viator's right to can-
cel a contract and return the pay-
ment within 15 days of the policy
transfer.
If you are considering this
option for yourself or a loved one,
please take some time to familiar-
ize yourself with the following
guidelines, as they may be helpful
in making a decision or avoiding
costly mistakes.
Contact two or three viatical
settlement companies to make
sure offers are competitive, and
be aware of prevailing discount
rates. A viatical settlement com-
pany might pay 60 percent of the
face value of a policy to a person
whose life expectancy Is two years
or less, and 80 percent to some-
one whose life expectancy is six
months or less.
*Remember, you don't have to
accept an offer, and you can
change your mind.
*Make sure the company sets.
up an escrow account with a rep-
utable financial institution at the
beginning of the, transfer so you
can besure the funds are avail-
able to cover the offer.
*Check with the insurance
department's toll-free Consumer
Helpline at 1-800-342-2762 to see
whether the vlatlal broker bd
company Is properly licensed and
whether there are any corn-.
plaints. Those already In the busi-
ness when the law took effect
June 30 have until November 1 to
get a license. Anyone entering the
business after June 30 must be
licensed before conducting any
viatical business.

I need your vote and

support on October Ist


I believe we have a great record over the
,past 4 years. Think Gulf County is on the
right track and we need to keep ,.it that,,

My opponent has misled you on W : ^B lI
many issues, that I want to set '[1
straight.'
.FACT:, The Board of County Commission
has reduced your ad-valorem tax rate
every year for the last 4 years. Our ad-
valorem taxes are lower today than they
were 8 years ago. He claims that we have raised your taxes, and the bud-
get has grown $300,000.00 in 3 years.
FACT: Gulf County is growing and it is not a tax increase for new homes
to be added to the tax roll. Also, it costs $100,000 a year for the Board to
give its employees a 3%' raise; that alone is $300,000 in 3 years. We on
the Board fought to reduce ad-valorem taxes every year, and reduce our
dependence on ad-valorem taxes by shifting to grants, state shared rev-
enues and '"user pays". He has accused the County of foolish;spending,
yet the County auditor says that we are in the "best financial .shape
ever"! Our fire departments, emergency services, ambulance service,
parks, roads,etc. have greatly improved therefore adding to our quality of
life! I want the very best for every citizen in Gulf County!
My opponent has attacked grants and then recently stated'
that he was in favor of them, which is it? Can "t he make a
simple decision whether he is for or against something that
is so vital to the County!
FACT: We don't pay grants back or pay interest! We have received over
$1,000,000.00 in grants for the White City, Highland View Systems,
$100,000.00 for Beacon Hill Park and $30,000.00 for the Highland View
Boat Ramp and Park and that's just in District 3 alone! If we didn't pursue
and receive grants our water customers would be paying 3 times what
they now pay for water! Would my opponent refuse the $600,000.00 grant
to replace the Highland View Water System? What would that cost the
Highland View water customers?
*We on the Commission are able to do more projects and services than
ever before, not with additional ad-valorem taxes, but with sound man-
agement, and fighting for our share of grants and state shared rev-
enues.
We have greatly improved Gulf County in the past 4 years, and again, I
think we are on the right track. I stand on my record and my accomplish-
ments. I am not a radical nor do I dwell on the negative; I also know that
Gulf County runs more efficiently when its Commissioners work together
for the good of the County. Let's not turn back the clock to gridlock, let's
continue to keep Gulf County on the right course!

Mulching Ornamentals


Mulching is one of the bes
things we can do for landscape
plants. Most of us use a mulch
simply because it -makes our
plants look better. But, improving
the landscape's appearance is
only one of the many benefits o
mulching.
It's hard to decide which o
!the benefits of mulching land-
scape ornamentals is most Impor
tant My Information on this topic
was provided by Extension Urban
Horticulture Specialist Dr. Robert
Black of the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and Agricultura
Sciences. A
First, mulching makes it
harder for weeds to grow in
shrubbery and flower beds. Also,
a mulch acts as an insulating
,blanket over plant roots, keeping
them cool in hot weather, and
warm in winter.
Another advantage is that a
mulch slows evaporation, and
helps conserve moisture in the
soil. Also, it reduces the crusting
that can occur when the soil sur-
face dries out. This is important
because it allows water from rain

or irrigation to soak into the soil,
rather than running off and caus-
ing erosion.
As organic mulches decom-
pose, they work down into the
soil. This improves soil texture,
and may even increase soil fertili-
ty.
Two types of mulching mate-
rials are used in Florida, organic
mulches and inert mulches.
Organic mulches include com-
post, bark, leaves, grass clip-
pings, straw, wood chips, saw-
dust, and similar materials. Inert
mulches are things like gravel,
pebbles. and polyethylene plastic
film.


Applying an organic mulch is
a simple matter. Just spread a
two to four inch thick layer of the
9 selected material around the base
d of newly planted landscape orna-
mentals. Then, add more mulch
' as needed during the year. But,
d never allow the mulch to pile up
e around the trunks or lower
g branches of your plants. Spring is
usually the best time to add
t mulch to established plants.
n If you're mulching with straw.
wood chips, or sawdust, it's a
I ..good Idea to apply some high
nitrogen fertilizer at the same
time. One or two cups of such fer-
tilizer per bushel of mulch should
help avoid deficiency problems.

less fertilizer to begin with. That's
one reason why I.F.A.S. scientists
recommend plastic mulch for
commercial ornamental and veg-
etable crop production In Florida.
To summarize mulching
can be one of your most valuable
gardening practices. Mulch helps
control weeds, and conserves soil
moisture. It also moderates soil
temperatures, improves texture.
and can increase fertility. Finally,
mulch adds to the beauty of your
landscape, for a relatively low
cost You'll get good results by
using a variety of organic and
inert mulching materials.

VOTERS: May We Have A Moment of Your Time?

We as citizens of Gulf County would like to take this opportunity to talk to you about a very well respected
man, Jimmy Williams. He returned to Gulf County, his birthplace, and purchased a home to be close to his family.

Jimmy Williams has made the decision to run for the office of Sheriff because he feels that with the help of the
people he can make Gulf Counnty a safe and drug free place to live. He will work with youth and parents to provide
education about drugs, always being available to answer questions and offer assistance.

In addition to his belief in the youth as our future. He is concerned about shut-ins and elderly people. Setting
up a phone-in assistance program for the shut-ins and elderly is one of his goals. All of these" ideas" are what
makes us feel Jimmy Williams is the man for the job.
Now, here are some questions about his opponent all voters of Gulf County need answers to:

1). Have brutality suits been brought against him?
2). Bay County considered Gulf County only a short while ago "That Place" between Mexico Beach and
Apalachicola". Why the sudden interest in us now?
3). Why have Bay County politicians and influential people become interested in the Gulf County Sheriff's
Race?
4). Does Bay County have an "invested interest"? Below is a partial list taken from the News Herald, September

WHAT IS "TRUST"


The dictionary gives several interesting meanings for this
commonly ,used word "reliance on the integrity of a person;
confideiii hope; confidence in the ability or intention of a
person; obligation or responsibility; to believe, rely on, depend
on, to do something without fear of consequences."'
Trust is obviously not something to be given or taken lightly.
It is in this spirit that we operate our pharmacy. We want to have
your trust but we expect to have to earn it by the professional
pharmacy service we offer to our customers.
"A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US with their pre-
scriptions, health needs and other pharmacy products.
We consider this trust a privilege and a duty. May we be

When the 1996-97 football
season started, head Shark foot-
ball coach Chuck Gannon
stressed the importance of not
losing players due to injury or
otherwise because of the slim
number of players on this year's
squad. His reasoning became
resoundly apparent Friday night
when the undefeated 4A Wakulla
War Eagles shut out the Sharks
28-0 as three Shark starters sat
out the game.
Wakulla's strong running
game plowed out 367 yards rush-
ing against the Sharks, 63 of
which came on the War Eagles'
third play from scrimmage as
running back Derek Allen took
the ball on an option play for
Wakulla's first points of the
evening.
Wakulla made it 14-0 late in
the first quarter, again anchored
by strong running from Allen and
help from fullback Clay Gilley.'
They picked up 14 more points in
the third quarter to finish with 28
points on the night.
Wakulla's defense held the'
Shark offense at bay- throughout
the contest, limiting them to'
under. one hundred total yards

Arizona Chemical Conducts'


Confined Space Safety Trainimng


This September, employees at
Arizona Chemical's Port St Joe
plant participated In an intense
week-long training course to learn
a skill they hope they never have
to use-confined space rescue.,
The plant's 12-member, vol-
unteer Confined Space Rescue
Team was formed as part of the
facility's comprehensive confined
space safety program. The facility
has more than 130 documented
confined spaces that employees
must enter periodically to perform
various maintenance and clean-
ing tasks. If an employee was
injured in one of those spaces and
unable to exit on their own, the
rescue team would respond.
"ThIbis training demonstrated
to each of us the importance and
value of teamwork," said Rick
Cimino, safety specialist. "As long
as we work together and continue
to develop -he skills we've
learned, we have the ability to
safely rescue a fellow employee."
Training involved rappelling
drills and extensive simulated
confined space rescue using vari-
ous extrication devices and respi-
rator equipment As part of these
exercises, "victims" including
plant manager Clark Davis, were,
packaged in a stretcher and low-
ered about 60 feet to the ground
from a plant distillation tower.
Team captain Charlie
Caswell, laborer, has five years
experience as a flreflghter. He is
also a licensed emergency medical
technician.
"As a rescuer there are sever-
al things to remember, but two of
the most important are to concen-
trate on your own safety first and
to keep your composure," Caswell
said. "If you panic or get careless,
there may be two victims to worry
about."
Knowledge and experience
will help ensure that the team
responds accordingly should an
incident occur. During the train-
ing session the team learned to
identify more than a dozen pieces
of rescue equipment by name,
describe their construction fea-
tures, strengths, limitations and
proper use. They also learned
patient packaging techniques. In
addition, they will conduct a sim-
ulated confined space rescue at
least once a year.
"As with, any team, everyone
has different--strer+gths;'.- -said
Danny Nicolet, instructor. "If a
quarterback tries to play line-
backer, he's not going to perform
to the best of his abilities. The
team captain has to know his


team and what areas they would
be best in during a crisis."
Eight of the 12 team members
at the Port St. Joe plant are
-trained in CPR and first aid. While
two of them enter the space to
assess the victim's condition and
stabilize him or her, other team
members may operate the pulleys
and ropes of the retrieval sys-
- .e...m.m.a ._a.. ..e h.saf.ty. lines. ..
are properly anchored or monitor
available air supply.
"Two out of every three deaths
in. confined spaces happen to


would-be rescuers," Nicolet said.
"Now, as a result of this and con-
Swiued training, they have the
'6owledge not to become a statis-
tic."
Members of the Port St Joe
plant's Confined Space Rescue
Team are Rusty Brown. Charlile
Caswell, Rick Cimino, Darrel
Davidson. Mike Faulkenberry,
Eddie Haddock. Wayrie M'o rb'ray, ,
Randy Parker. Mike Pridgen,
Ronnie Robershaw. Perky White
and Warren Yeager.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, SEPT. 26, 1996 PAGE 1B


On October 1st, we the voters of Gulf County
have a major decision 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
interested in being Sheriff of Gulf County. I sup-
pose the $68,000 a year and a free automobile
might have changed his mind. I truly believe Mr.
McKeitheri's heart is in Bay County and it was
recently shown by his decision to have Gulf County
patrol cars painted in Bay County.

Since becoming Sheriff, Mr. McKeithen has
increased the manpower 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 auxiliary offi-
cer's driveways. It's no wonder that in the last four
years, our county law enforcement budget 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. 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 bud-
dies packing. .


A "packaged victim", plant manager Clark Davis, is low-
ered to safety after being "rescued".

those; we mayjcall'friends", but
A- actuially mean an amusing'

' relationship, or avery good neigh-
b, tor.,The number, pf really great
, friends, however;, those who leave
lifetime footprints on heart, soul,
mitid 'a id niemory, .are much
more'rare -
Suh a friend to me was
Robin BrihkIdey.
A:few years ago, I 'came' to
Florida'to, work for a health care
company which specializes in
geriatric care. The job would
mean a promotion, a raise in pay,
and. a nrew beginning in a place
where I knew no one and no one
knew me: I. came down with my
two eldest cats, "Katie" and
"Baby", sure that I was "prayed
up" and that it was God's will that
I come to Northwest. Florida.
I learned a lot in the next year
About love from the nursing home
residents I .served. But I learned
even more about friendship from
Robin
I was soon- lonely in my new
hiome, but I would have as soon
Died than admit it. The' desire for
such intense privacy was in part a
natural part of my personality,
but also came from having a hard
"coming- up" which made me
fiercely self reliant, to the point of
shutting others out.

October is Month

Of Seafood And

Aquaculture
The Governor and Cabinet
announced recently that October
will be Seafood 1& Aquaculture
Month in Florida. The purpose of
the month long celebration will be
to remind Floridians once again
that the production and sale of
seafood and aquaculture prod-
ucts make an enormous contribu-
tion to Florida's economy.
Most Floridians are probably
not aware:
*that Florida's commercial
fishermen harvest over $215 mil-
lion of fish and shellfish annually'
and that their catch was the
fourth most valuable state catch
in the nation in 1995;
*that Florida aquaculturists
produced nearly $80 million of
edible and inedible products last
year, and that farm production is
expected to grow rapidly over the
next few years;
*that Florida seafood and
aquaculture businesses employ
about 45,000 Floridians:
eand that Florida restaurants
and grocery stores sell about $1
billion of seafood and aquacultur-
al products annually.
Florida's commercial fisher-
men produce a tremendous vari-
ety of high quality/high value
seafood; including shrimp, spiny
lobster, stone crab claws, clams,
oysters, snappers, groupers,
swordfish and tunas.
Up to now, live ornamental
fish and aquatic plants have been
the most valuable aquacultural
crops produced in'Florida; howev-
er, production of edible seafood
such as clams, oysters, hybrid
bass, catfish and tilapia has been
growing steadily in recent years.
Production of farm-raised clams
is expected to quadruple in 1996.
Most of Florida's popular
wild-caught and farm-raised vari-
eties will be in good supply during
Seafood & Aquaculture Month.

month after I moved to Port St.
Joe. I was in a hurry, and we only
chatted about "surface" things.
She seemed -to be 'in her iee-,
ment-happy, healthy, vital, jok-
ing, alive.
I got a job in Gulf County in ,-
May of 1995. In the excitement'of,
new beginnings, I neglected my
friends in Franklin County. It
came as quite a shock to me to
hear from a cancer survivor, living
in Apalachicola that Robin was
gone. She had died in May.
Still,,the full impact didn't hit
me. I learned a lot of lessons that
hard, hard summer, one of which
being that miracles don't always
fit our preferred timetable. God_
had given her back to us once,
\ but it.didn't mean that she would
be allowed to stay another 40
years. This was the hardest thing


to understand for me, and, proba-
bly for many others who had been
close to her.
A few weeks' ag,. business
brought me back to Franklinr
County. While in Apalachicola, it
was lunch time, and I had a taste
for pizza. But I could not bring
myself to go into her place for
lunch. Instead, I went elsewhere,
a sinking feeling letting me know
that ,I had not finished with my
grief for my friend.
At the other place. I came face
to face with Robin's sister. She
was dissimilar in looks from
Robin, but identical in personality
and verve. She greeted me with
enthusiasm. I carefully avoided
mentioning her' sister, telling
myself that I wanted to "spare her
feelings". Once I got outside, how-
ever, I had to admit that it was my


Apalachicola,' walking distance
from my tiny, upstairs duplex. :I
went .to other restaurants; and
was treated like a tourisL At
Robin's, however, I was treated
like a member of her family.
I soon learned after my sec-
ond or third visit:that I would not
'be -allowed to hide behind a news-
paper 'or book, something' I was
fond of doing In public places.
Robin would come out from
behind the counter, grinning, full
of questions and comments. We
would have deep, philosophical
discussions about religion, soci-
ety, and everything. Soon, I was a
"regular" customer,. as much for
the camaraderie' as for the great
food. I had made my first friend in
Apalachicola.
Not too long after that, a tall,
thin man abruptly walked into my
office. He looked directly at me
and said, "I hear you are a woman
who believes in the power of
prayer." Bewildered, I nodded, not
sure what this man wanted or
why he had come to my place of
work.
He then said, "My wife's been
diagnosed with breast cancer.
She's 32 years old, Please pray for
her."
And then,'he was gone, before
I could ask him his wife's name.
All that following weekend, I
couldn't stop thinking about the
,incident. And I did pray for this
unknown person. I figured that
even if I didn't know the name,
God must.
It wasn't until the next week
that I found out that it was
Robin's husband who had come
to visit me, ,and that It was Robin,
my dear friend, who was critically
ill.
Things seemed to go from bad
to worse. Robin seemed.to rapidly
decline. She went into a Panama
city hospital and was given a grim
prognosis. Then, one night, unex-
plainably, I woke up three times,
each time, feeling compelled to
pray for her. At the hospital, at
those same times, her husband
and family were also praying. I
was later to find out that, at
approximately those same times,
Robin's breathing and heart beat
had stopped. When -the prayers
began, each time. Robin came
back.
Shortly after thiss, she, rallied
and was able to return home. She
donned a black wig to cover her
hair loss from cancer treatments,
and came back, to work with her
old enthusiasm and zest for life. It
was truly a joy to see Robin at the
homecoming game that year, well
enough to watch with pride as her
only child participated as one of
the sophomore attendants for the
festivities.
'Robin continued to prosper,
and I suppose all that loved her,
hoped that her remission would
never end. It was frightening to
think that such a vital, alive per-
son could be stopped by anything,
even a deadly disease.
The last time I saw Robin
alive was in March; 1995, .a

Mrs. Tom Mangu
On Friday, September 20, at
approximately 10:30. p.m., Cor-
poral Mark Cutler observed a
black Toyota pick-up truck dri-
ving at a high rate of speed weav-
ing in and out of traffic on
Highway 98 In Port St Joe.
Corporal Cutler turned on his
emergency lights in an attempt to
stop the vehicle. Ignoring his sig-
nals, the driver of the vehicle con-
tinued west on Highway 98 and
turned onto Dolphin street in
*Highland View.
As Cutler attempted to follow
. the pick-up in the new direction,
his vehicle skidded on some gray-,
el in the road, causing his patrol
car to strike a home owned by
Thomas and Peggy Mangum.
The pick-up was located sev-
eral minutes later and its driver
apprehended by Officer Shane
Lee of the Florida Marine Patrol.
Thomas ,Edward.,.Garcla of',
Mexico Beach was charged with
r D.U.I., resisting an officer without
violence, and felony fleeing and
attempting to elude.
No one, was injured in the
traffic accident which Is being
investigated by Trooper Greg
Jackson of the Florida Highway
Patrol.

Inspections Set
The Florida Highway Patrol
Swill be conducting inspection
checkpoints during the week of
.; September 27 thru 30 at CR-73
near CR-287 and SR-30 near
Allen Memorial Way.
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.

This is my' pledge to the

possible programs for our students

I will treat each school fairly and impartially.

I will use the resources of this school

SrPd. Pol. Adv., Pd. for by Camp. Acct. of Jerry Kelley, Democrat


Dear Gulf County Voters:


As the second primary election quickly approaches, I would again like to address some key concerns that have been brought to my attention. It is my desire to provide you
with as much information as possible in order that you can make a well-informed choice on October 1. ,'`',

*Hiring Policy My policy has always been to give each and every applicant equivalent opportunity during the interview and hiring process. In determining the best person
for a particular job, my first consideration is the affect this decision will have upon those individuals who are most closely involved, i.e., parents, students, teachers, and the
community at large.

*Budget Concerns The purpose of a budget is to provide guidelines and structure to the allocation of funds. I maintain a steadfast commitment to accomplishing that
which is most beneficial for our students, while working within the budgetary guidelines set forth by the Gulf County School Board. As principal of Wewahitchka
Elementary, I am extremely proud of the efforts our faculty and staff have made at "doing more with less." In a team effort, the faculty and administration ofWES have
sought outside funding sources (private, state, and federal grants) in order to improve the quality education experience at WES.

*Equity of Funds, County-wide I am a citizen of Gulf County and am deeply committed to improving the quality of education for all of the children of this county.
Federal and state funds are dispersed to schools according to the number of students and the particular needs of those students.:I am committed to ensuring that funds be
distributed to the school from which they were generated. Any flexible monies would be dispersed as equitably as possible, after hearing input from each school and making
diligent efforts to meet the reported needs; I strongly support the improvement of all school facilities, especially the renovation of Port St. Joe Elementary.

*Qualifications for Superintendent I presently hold Florida Certification in administration appropriate for the office of superintendent. I have had 29 successful years as
an educator in Gulf County, ranging from elementary through high school, both in the classroom, as well as in administration. However, I feel that the greatest qualification
for this office is my desire and vision for the Gulf County School System to provide our children with the best that public education has to offer.

*Changes in Present Educational Structure I am committed to continuing growth in the Gulf County School System. The only changes I would ever endorse are those
that have been determined to be beneficial, on the whole, for the students of this county. These decisions could only be reached with considerable input from all parties
involved and after weighing benefits and detriments for all who would be'affected.

Certainly, at election time, misinformation runs rampant. It is my intention, by providing the above information, to clear up any misconceptions voters may have. However,
if you have continued concerns or questions, please call me at my home (639-2855). I welcome your questions and comments and will'do my best to answer each with the
honesty and forthrightness it deserves.


Sincerely,


Health Concerns Cause Consumers to Limit Beef Consumption


By Cindy Spence
University of Florida, Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences
Consumers are not as worried
as they used to be about fat and
cholesterol in beef and other
products but they are concerned
enough to pass up an occasional
serving,, research by a University
of Florida professor shows.
Consumers strongly: con-
cerned about fat and cholesterol
forego 13 servings of beef a year,
according to a beef consumption
analysis by food and resource
economist Ronald Ward, a profes-
sor at UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences.
"We already knew that con-
.cerns about fat and cholesterol
were' having an impact,." Ward
said. "But the beef industry didn't
know'whether the concern meant
a difference of five '(5) percentage
points in consumption or 25."
Ward annually measures the
impact of industry promotions on
U.S. beef consumption, but this
past year expanded his model to
generate information about fat
and cholesterol concerns.
Ward gauged consumer con-
cern and its effect on consump-
tion over a two week period. It
turned out consumers most con-
cerned about fat and cholesterol
passed up a half-serving of beef
over the two-week ,period.
"That doesn't look like much
but multiplied by all consumers
and over the course of a year it's a
big difference in the amount of
beef demand," Ward said.
"What this confirms to the
beef industry is that concerns
about fat and cholesterol clearly
have an impact on beef consump-


tion and it does affect a person's
probability of being a beef con-
sumer."
In his study, Ward analyzed
data from a national survey of
21,000 households, conducted
from 1983 through 1995 by NPD
Group Inc. Over a two-week peri-
od, the survey measured the
number of servings of beef con-
sumed demographics, behavior
(such as whether a member of the
household was on a diet or a fast-
food eater), attitudes toward fat
and cholesterol, prices and beef.
promotions.
Consumers were asked if they
consumed beef over the two-week
period and if so, how much. The
group of beef-eaters with the least
concern about fat and cholesterol
consumed 4.43 servings over the
two-week period, while the group.
most concerned consumed 3.99
servings in the same time. That
translates into about a half serv-
ing.
In previous years, Ward's
model of U.S. demand for beef'
highlighted three main factors,
that influence demand; consumer
concern over fat and cholesterol,
increasing consumer preference
for white meats, and promotion of
beef.
Under the National Research.
and Promotion Act, producers of
beef and other commodities can
assess themselves a fee for adver-
tising. In the beef industry, the
assessment is a $1-per-head levy
on cattle at each sale, generating.
more than $500 million for beef
promotions over the last eight'
years.
The beef industry's advertis-
ing investment is paying off,
according to Ward's research. For


every dollar spent on beef promo-
tion, producers are getting back
$5.70.: In fact, in the two-week
study window, beef servings
increased by up to half a serving
per consumer in direct response
to beef promotions.
Since 1990, concerns about
fat have leveled off and concerns-
about cholesterol actually have
dropped. And with fewer house-
holds expressing these concerns,
the beef industry benefits. But
Ward cautions that the figures do
not show why the health trends-
are occurring.
Ward's study shows that the
checkoff program has helped in
the turnaround in consumer atti-
tudes toward including beef in
their diets, said Chuck Lambert,
an economist with the National'
Cattlemen's Beef Association.

asion with the following members present:
Chairman Billy E. Traylor and

Michael L. Hammond, and Warren J.
Yeager, Jr. Commissioner Nathan Peters, Jr.
was absent. Others present were: Chief

ment/911 Coordinator Marshall Nelson,

The meeting came to order at 6:00
p.m., C.D.T.
Commissioner Hammond opened 'the
meeting with prayer, and Commissioner
Yeager led the Pledge of Allegiance to the
Flag.
.'. Chairman Traylor thanked the.public
for their assistance In the recent tragedy in
Gulf County, and stated that the purpose of
this meeting is to receivee public comment
regarding the Gulf County Search and
Rescue Unit. He reported there has been.
discussion of reorganizing the present unit,
or of developing an additional unit In the
north end of the County. Chairman Traylor
also stated that this meeting is in no way a
poor reflection on the present unit because
they have done an excellent job, this is only
an attempt to improve Search and Rescue
for:the entire county. Upon request, the fol-
lowing citizens offered comment: '
Carmen McLemore stated that he
feels the County would be better served by
having 2 separate units, because the citi-
zenis in North Gulf County are more fanil-
tar with that area (as those on the South
end know their area)'and their response
time would be faster. : ',
Sheriff McKeithen stated he is con-
cerned that this will beL-ome a North 'vs.
South issue. if the department is split.
Joe Paul stated he does not under-
stand the desire to separate the unit
because no complaints have been received
regarding their performance. He also dis-
cussed operation of the present service.
The Board discussed membership
(active and Inactive) of the Gulf County
Search and Rescue Unit, and participation
during emergencies. Commissioner Yeager
discussed the possibility of restructuring
the Unit to have: 2 coordinators, 1 for the
South end of the County and 1 for the North
end of the County eachi coordinator would
have expertise in their area and would be in
charge of the Search and Rescue Unit if it
was needed there). Chairman Traylor
requested that citizens from North Gulf
County choose a coordinator/spokesman
and the Board will hold a workshop with
him and Joe Paul (Gulf County Search and
Rescue) to come up with a suitable solu-
tion.
Ward McDaniel discussed that sepa-
rating the ambulance service several years
ago has proven to have been an excellent
decision, and separating Search and
Rescue may also be the best course of
action. He stated that there has always
been a spirit of cooperation between the
ambulance services and fire departments
with the County. and Search and Rescue
should be the same.
',Chairman Traylor stated that the
Biard will take all he comments presented
today and use theliltPo-'com:l''-dd'a'' appro-',
priate solution. Commissioner Armstrong
discussed the public interest in this matter,
and thanked everyone for attending. .,
Billy Davis discussed that during
emergencies the entire County unites
together to assist each other, no matter who
Is In trouble, and he feels both ends of the
County should unite together to make one
Search and Rescue unit. .....
Frankie Stanley inquired about
selecting a representative from North Gulf
County ..' ,..,:- '.. t .- .
Johnny Stanley reported he has con-
tacted several divisions of the Armed Forces
regarding possible training courses avail-

able through them for Search and Rescue
procedures.
After further discussion, the public
majority chose Carmen McLemore as the*
representative for North Gulf County, to
meet with the Board and Gulf County
Search and Rescue to recommend a solu-
tion.
Upon motion by CommissionerYeager,
second by Commissioner Hammond, and-
unanimous vote, the meeting did then

Fall's cooler days make a soup supper especially satisfying, and quick-cooking
ingredients make it possible to enjoy homemade soup any night of the week.
Pacific Rim Meatball Soup is easy to make and healthful, too, because it uses
convenient lower sodium canned broth., recipe-read) fresh vegetables from the
supermarket produce department and lean ground turkey breast.
The meatballs owe their soft, moist texture to quick or old fashioned oats.
Generations of savvy cooks have relied on Quaker oats to make meat loaf moist
and juicy, and'wholesome, whole grain oats work the same way in recipes for
meatballs and burgers. They're also an economical way to stretchia' pound of"
ground turkey or lean beef to serve six.
For an Asian flavor, the ground turkey is seasoned with soy sauce, sesame oil
and ginger before shaping into small meatballs. To keep meatballs tender, use
a gentle hand wien mixing and be sure not. to overcook them. Crusty bread or
rolls, fruit and fortune cookies complete the meal.

A Message to Independent

Commercial Fishermen


I know what it is like to start from nothing
and develop my own business, just as
you, the commercial fishermen, have
done.

As your state representative; I will be your
VISIBLE ADVOCATE in the Florida

unnecessary laws that make it so hard for
commercial fishermen to make a living.

his family.


A Message to

Education is the key .to ourfuture. As your state
representative, I will workfo[a -reduction in
class size and an increase in teacher pay. It is
absolutely necessary that funding bring teach-
ers' salaries in smaller counties more in line
with the pay salaries of larger counties.

I will work to make our schools Safer ,by insist-
ing on firm discipline policies which allow
teachers more control in the classrooms.

Maintaining an atmosphere where learning can
take place is essential.

Having served 10 years as member and chair-
man of the Board of Trustees of Chipola Junior
College and having heard the concerns of my
wife, a career educator,, I am well-versed in the
many educational challenges facing teachers,
parents, students, and communities.

Education is a priority.


A Message to

Recreation is also needed in our lives if
we are to maintain balance. Therefore, .I
strongly support the proposed MARINA
for Port St. Joe. With a-MARINA, Port St.
,Joe and Gulf County will be provided
with both a well-deserved means of
recreation and an additional source of
revenue for the city anid county.

I have talked with many of you. I know
there are a number of other issues that
concern you. Let me assure you that I
will always be available to Gulf County
and its citizens. I am.a farmer and a well
driller and am accustomed to long hours

The Gann Brothers, a local

be featured guests this Sunday
night, September 29th beginning
at 7 p.m., ET, at the First Baptist
Church of Port St. Joe.
The church is located at 102

invited to attend and enjoy this
special service.

Dear Counselor:
I just got marled two months
ago and think I may want a
divorce No, my husband is not
an. alcoholic or abusive, he just
gets on -.my nerves We did P-ok
have a whirlwind courtship-in
fact, we dated for six years before
marrying-since junior high
school. I
The last two years, though,
he has been stationed nearby at
an air force base, and we would
only see each other a few times a
month. Now, he is out of the ser-,
vice, works with his dad, andlhe
leaves home at 8 a.m., comes
home for lunch, and is back
promptly at 5 p.m. ,
He is eager to please me, and
follows me all around the house,
wanting to know what he can do
to help. What I want is for him to
leave me. alone I feel so smoth-
ered that I could scream I find
fault with everything he does and
fuss at him all the time.
This is a sweet guy and I real-
ly do love -him, and I know I'm
being unreasonable. How can I
ask for space without ending my
marriage?
He's Driving Me Crazy
Dear Driving,
There is a certain adjustment
period that takes place when two
people begin living together. No
matter how long you have dated,
it is not the same as actually
sharing living space on a daily
basis. Frustrations and feelings
of being trapped are common in a
relationship where no clear
boundaries have been defined.
It sounds like, as well, that
you got used to a certain frequen-
cy of interaction. Now that yod
are together more, this is a big
adjustment too. When you only
see a person a few times a month,


cha Iurch with


it is -possible to minimize their
faults and romanticize their good
traits. When you live with a per-
son, this is almost impossible.
It may also be likely that you
are both carrying Into marriage
definite expectations of how mar-
ried people should act. Perhaps
your parents gave each other a lot
of space, while his family did
everything together. Find out
what each other's ideas of mar-
riage are, and then work out a
reasonable middle ground that
both people can live with.
There are also other ways to
give each other space by develop-,
ing separate hobbies, activities,
and time with friends that give
you both a chance to be refreshed
and able to enjoy each other
more. Even when you are in the
same house, there is no reason
why you, need to be in the same
room. .These brief periods of
respite should decrease marital
tension and make you enjoy
- shared time that much more.
Finally, divorce is an option
that should only be considered
after every other avenue is
exhausted. Before you even think
about this, please contact a,qual-
Ified marriage and family. coun-
selor who can help you and your
spouse learn communication and
negotiating skills.
Sincerely,
Laura Rogers, M.S., Counselor

What Makes A Reader? .
Have you ever wondered what
makes a child a reader? Well. part
of the answer to that is writing.
Most of us write a lot in our every-
day lives, so our children proba-
bly observe us doing this acuvity.
So they begin at an early age to
want to imitate us. Reading. writ-
ing. and speaking are also things
that they see us all do on a dally
basis. These are not an Indepen-
dent process. so we must encour-
age them to do all three.
Here are some tips to help
your child become a better reader.
writer and thinker.
TRY THESE AT HOME:
1. Have your young child label
the objects in a picture.
2. Help them to write down
everything they know about a

the police department on gun

"The guns on T.V. are not real.

gerous." They were instructed to

DidYou Know...
Most cars don't need a high-
octane gasoline to perform prop-
erly and efficiently. The level rec-
ommended in the owner's manual
of many cars is regular unleaded
(87 octane).
From an economical stand-
point, motorists should buy the
lowest octane gasoline their car
can use without knocking. Using
low-octane gasoline also yields
environmental benefits, since
higher-octane gas consumes
more energy to produce at the re-
finery.
