Beach


Driving

Local Input to
DEP Proposal
County Commissioner Warren
Yeager reported to the board at
their last meeting that meetings
were continuing with the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection
and the Beach Driving Committee
concerning driving on the beaches
at Cape San Bias.
Several months ago DEP had
recommended closing the Cape
S area to vehicular traffic as a part
of their Aquatic Preserve Man-
agement Plan. Following heated
public hearings on their recom-
mendations and meetings with
the Gulf County commissioners,
DEP representatives agreed to set
up a committee consisting of par-
ties from all sides of the issue to
try and work out a resolution to
the disputed recommendation.
The Gulf County Commission
has unanimously supported
beach driving, along withth e vast
majority of those present at the
public hearings. But, all parties
also understand that DEP is the
regulatory authority over the
issue.
Yeager pointed out to the
commission that it Is imperative
that users of the beach under-
stand that they must follow the
rules and regulations spelled out
under the beach driving ordi-
nance if they want to continue
having beach driving privileges.
S The ordinance specifically
points out that users must stay
away from dunes and beach vege-
tation, use only designated access
points to gain vehicular access to
the beach, and abide by estab-
lished speed limits while driving
on the beach.
During public hearings, sev-
eral members of the Cape San
S Bilas Property Owner's Association
registered their opposition to
beach driving, but most of their
complaints stemmed from people
who were breaking the rules of the
ordinance. Property owners ex-
plained that some drivers were
riding across their property and
speeding on the beach, creating a
danger for them and their families
while using the beach.
The county, in cooperation
with the Gulf County Sheriffs
Office, has beefed up beach
patrols in the area. But, as Yeager
pointed out, the final responsibili-
ty falls on the individuals using
the beach, to follow proper proce-
dures and help police the area.
Members of the committee
include Barbara Eells and
Herman Jones (Gulf County
Turtle Patrol and local environ-
mentalists). Warren Yeager (Gulf
Commission), Joe Hooper (Cape
San Bias Property Owners
Assoc.), Bill Kennedy (supporter of
beach driving), and DEP represen-
tatives.
Yeager said the committee has
met twice to discuss the issue and
is scheduled to meet again this
month.

Rain!

It Came to
the Tune of
Six Inches!
Rain came down by the
buckets full since last Sat-
urday, washing away some
beautiful sunshine weather
which we had enjoyed dur-
ing the middle of last week.
According to the labora-
tory director at the Waste-
water Treatment Plant,
Lynn Todd, the Gulf County
area had experienced about
six inches of rainfall since
last Saturday. The largest
amount was experienced
Tuesday-election day-
when 3.12 inches of the
wet stuff was recorded.
At times the city experi-
enced downpours in such a
short time, that street in-
tersections were flooded in
several locations and in cer-
tain low spots.
According to the weath-
er reports, there is more
rainfall in store for the rest
of the week.

from the steady rain with an umbrella as they leave th, pol-
ing place for Precinct 12 after casting her vote Tuesday. i


Rainy Weather



Doesn't Deter 58%



of Gulf Co. Voters.

Gulf County voters weathered the storms Tuesday in a good turn out for the sec-
ond primary election to select both a Democratic and Republican nominee for
Congressional representative in District Two, and a Democratic candidate for State
Representative, Dist. 7. Allen Boyd defeated Anita Davis by almost a three to one vote.
3572 to 1282. Port St. Joe resident David Warriner handily defeated Jackson County
President, Jamey Westbrook, 3513 to 1440, but lost district wide by a narrow margin.
It was a strong race for Warriner as the majority of the population base for District
Seven is in the Jackson County area. The only Republican question on the ballot saw
Carole Griffin win over Bill Sutton, 128-99, in the Congressional, District Two race
locally.
In local races, incumbent Frank McKeithen defeated challenger Jimmy Williams,
':862 to 2221 for the office of sheriff. McKeithen narrowly missed winning in an out-
* right majority from a field of five candidates in the September primary. He will fIa
SRepublican challenger Bob Williams in the November general election.
Jerry Kelley was declared the winner in the run-off race for School Superintendent.
SHe polled 2910 votes to David Bidwell's 2121 votes. Kelley will face the winner of the
SSeptember Republican primary, Terry Linton, in November.
In the closest race in Gulf County, Johnny Stanley narrowly defeated Mary Ellen
'' Gortman, 503 to 490 in the selection for Democratic representative for the County
Commission, District One. He will go up against Roger Jones, Republican candidate.
S The two races decided by voters of District Three, the county commissioner and
,.:school board position, were also too close to call until the final votes were tallied.
~ Tommy Knox defeated incumbent Michael Hammond to take the commission seat,
//644-554. Independents Robert Redmon and Steve Wood will be Knox's challengers in
. 'the November election.
In the school board race, Caroline Norton, current board member, was declared the
Winner, 664-535, over challenger Paul Sewell.

"Ampitheater" Is Proposed As


Part Of City Park Development

To Be Built By Merchant's Association Organization


While most of Gulf County
was busy checking out the elec-
tion tally Tuesday evening, the
Port St. Joe City Commission was
busy with a full agenda in their
regularly scheduled meeting.
Tonya Nixon and Jeannie
Mlms addressed the board on
behalf of the Retail Merchants
Association requesting the city's
'blessing" for the construction of
an amphitheater at First Union
Park. Nixon told the boaid that
the merchants wanted to do the
constructionI project as a fund-
raising effort if ithe commission
would give its approval of the con-
struction.
'Nixon, armed with a sketch of
the amphitheater, expressed to
the commission the need for the
theater for such events as the
city's Fourth of July celebration,
Christmas festivities, festivals,
Easter sunrise services, and polit-
ical rallies. She noted numerous
problems encountered each time
an event is planned at the site,
and the merchants recognized a
need for the facilities.
Plans call for the theater to be
designed to match the Downtown
Redevelopment project, and will
include a stage area (complete,
with electrical and sound system),
walkways, benches, handicap
ramps, lighting, etc.
Jeanie Mims estimated the
cost of the completed project
would be $60,000.
SEWER RATE INCREASE
The board held their final
reading of an ordinance to amend
the rate schedules for sewer fees,


Correction
Last week's paper intimated
in the story on the election that
there was no Republican party
opposition to the office of County
Commissioner, Group One. In'
fact, there is! We made a boo-boo.
Roger Jones is running for the
position under the Republican la-
bel and will be listed on the No-
vember ballot in this category.
The Star regrets making the
slip of the pen that said he
wasn't.


after which they unanimously
passed the amendment.
It will increase the price for
sewer (based on water consump-
tion) from 80% of a customer's
water bill to 1000% based' o the
current cost of $1.80 per 1,000
gallons of water. The ordinance
also includes language to Increase
late charges from $4 to $5, and
reconnect fees from $10 to $15.
Mayor Frank Pate pointed out
'the new, rates would still be con-
siderably less than what sur-
rounding communities are paying
for the service.


HESS TANK BIDS
Bill Kennedy (Preble-Rish
Consulting Engineers) told the
board that he had completed a
prebid meeting with seven firms
interested in making proposals to
clean and dismantle five or six of
the giant oil tanks from the Hess
property site.
The tanks will have to be
removed in order to make room
for construction of the marina
project being planned by the city.
Kennedy posed several questions
to the board concerning bid spec-

$12,000 Is Recovered

from Tues. Burglary
A major burglary and theft involving several thousand dol-
lars has been solved with the arrest of two Washington County
persons. Arrested and charged with burglary of an occupied
dwelling were 17-year-old Warren Whitfield and 20-year-old
Joe Register.
A Gulf County resident had reported the break-in and theft
approximately 8:00 p.m. Tuesday night. More than $15,000
was stolen in the burglary. Gulf County deputies responded
and were able to gather enough information from witnesses 'to
put the two suspects in the area.
Investigators worked throughout the night, travelling to
Washington County where Whitfield was arrested and to
Southport Where Register was arrested.
Officers recovered almost $12,000 cash and a diamond ring
the two had purchased with the stolen money. Both suspects
were returned to Gulf County to face charges.

Be Candid

IT SEEMS TO US THAT the state's site selection committee
for the proposed veterans' nursing home didn't intend to consid-
er placing the facility in Gulf County. They went through the
paces of "inspecting" the site in a cursory manner, arriving very
much late for the inspection tour and didn't give the site prof-
fered more than a passing glance after they arrived. There is no
indication they even gave a secondary site even so much as a
passing glance!
This was a rebuff of Veterans Service- Oficer Bo Williams,
who went to considerable expense and trouble to make a viable
presentation to the committee. They were to have arrived at
10:00 a.m. They actually did arrive at nearly 12:00 noon! What
was' to have been a continental breakfast served them, wasn't
very tasty as a lunch, after sitting in the open for two hours.
WE DON'T.MIND THE committee deciding to locate their fa-
cility in Pasco~ County, but when all but two of 17 recommenda-
tions for locating the care facility were located in the Pasco
County vicinity, that smells to us like that was where they want-
ed it to begin with. Why didn't they just tell us, "Folks, you don't
have what we-are looking for, and besides, you are in the wrong
part of the state for our purposes."
Such an answer would not only have saved us the effort bf
-trying.toput together a selling presentation, it would have saved
the site search committee from having to collect per diem for its
four members who came to Port St. Joe, ostensibly, to see what
Swe had to offer..
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE of going through the motions of
Searching out a location to place anything, if the ones to make
Sthe decision know full well which site they will approve to begin
With?
Why ignite a hope in this or any other county to the chance
Sof their locating within their confines, when you know full well
Another county, some 300 miles distant, is the front-runner?
Just tell us we do or do not have a chance at.selection the
n ext time. We have better things to do than squire you around
:just so you can look as if you are having a tough time making up
your mind. As taxpayers of both county and state budgets, we
would appreciate saving in both expenses.



It Was Different
S IT WAS DIFFERENT having a dinner thrown by a candidate
', in appreciation for the vote accorded his candidacy. It was differ-
Sent and it was unique. In other words, we haven't ever done
things like that before
S We wouldn't be recognizing the effort put forth by candidate
SKesley Colbert in these columns if it hadn't been so-well--
differentd
S- --e have never seen anything like it! The people responded
enthusiastically to this neat expression of appreciation. They
seemed.,to..appreciate It., Usually a candidate. forgets the effort
put ftfrth'for-or against-his election after the fact, whatever
.athe outcome.
STHE DINNER WASN'T any dinky affair, either. It was Paul
Gant-prepared chicken and all the trimmings needed to make it
a full-fledged barbecue dinner. You would have thought some-
one was sponsoring the event as a fund-raiser for some project
S, or other.
The candidate, himself, was on hand to express his apprecia-
tion personally, for the vote he received. He was openly honest
about appreciating the people coming out on election day to sup-
port him in his bid for re-electlon. His family was on hand to
help with the serving, also showing their appreciation for the
support given.
S We have often expressed how the voters of this or any other
county are actually going about the business of employing some-
one to do public service at voting time. To the candidate of one of
the full-time county jobs, it's the difference between being em-
%ployed or being unemployed at the time of election. When the
voters decide to "fire" a public servant, he is without a job. That
is why voters have a very serious duty to perform when they
have the opportunity to cast their ballot.
IT IS ALSO WHY those running for office are so serious in.
their task. It is employment or unemployment for them.
: It is refreshing to have appreciation for our efforts shown in
such a substantial manner. It won't soon be forgotten, we sus-
pect.

:Hunker Down with KS Kesley Colberti



Down The Yellow Brick Road


''





I watched Ozzie Smith retire
from major league baseball this
past weekend and couldn't help
but think of that giant oak tree
that shaded most of Miss Jessie
Killibrew's back yard and acted
as our unofficial left field foul
line. It was under that tree that
I learned how important the
shortstop was to your ball club.
"Jackie Burns," Paul David
Campbell had managed to get
four fingers over the knob of the
bat and thereby "win" the right
to choose first. He always picked
Jackie. Always. 'Course, if Leon,


had been the "last hand up"
he'd 'a chosen Jackle. too.
In 1956. In the back yard
league Jackie Burs was the
Chico Carrasqual/Luis Aparicio
' of our little town.
. I was five years younger
than Leon, Jack, Paul David and
the rest, but I got to play 'cause,
I was Leon's little brother and
Jackie said it was O.K. You see,
your shortstop was not only
- your best player-he was also
* the captain and major rule mak-
er for the game. It also didn't
hurt that mother could see us
* from the kitchen window. I was
always the last guy chosen and I
played right field. Always.
Listen, don't feel sorry for
a me--I was in the game.
I got to see from field level
.,: Jackie go in the hole, backhand


one and throw out Bobby C.
Melton by a step. I watched In
wonder struck amazement as
he'd fly across that 2 x 4 board
serving as our second base to
complete a double play. But if
you think that was something-
you should have seen him go
under that tree and snag foul
balls that bounced around in
those limbs .....
I never took my eyes or ears
off that ceremony honoring Oz-
zie last Saturday afternoon. The
governor of Missouri, the mayor
of St. Louis, Vince Coleman,
Barry Larkin, Whitey Herzog,
Lou Brock, Bob Gibson, Red
Schoendienst, Jack Buck, the
owners of the Cardinals, Tito
Landrum, Bob Costas, Stan Mu-
sial-everybody came to praise
The Wizard of OzI


Someone retold the story of
how Ozzle, as a boy. would lay
In his bed In the dark and toss a
baseball up in the air and catch
it. They marvelled as to how he
could do that without being able
to see ..... Listen, it's simple.
You don't have to see it. You
control the toss, you cat "feel it"
back into your hand.- 'Course,
doing it a few hundred times a
night helps you a little with that
one. I woke up a thousand
mornings with my hand still
wrapped around that 98 cent
Revelation baseball. -'

bouncing a ball off of concrete
steps. Boy howdy, ithat'll workI .

I Got "Checked Out" On GoldenAnniversary Celebrations


FRENCHIE AND I celebrated
,the big 5 oh wedding anniversary
Saturday and since this is being
written on Friday afternoon, I
have no idea about what went on
at the reception our kids gave for
:''-us. I do know it must have been
I mysterious, though. Here it is the
day before the big event and all I
know is that I am supposed to be
j.at the church recreation hall at
2:00, prepared to stand up for a
couple of hours. .
I know nothing about the pro-
tocol of golden anniversaries,
since I have. never experienced
one before and am not likely to
experience one again. As I under-
stand it, this is a one-time propo-
sition so I had best make the best
of it.
My daughter asked me
Thursday whether I had bought
Frenchie a diamond for the big
event or not,
: I replied that nobody had told
me I was supposed to. I hardly
had time to collect enough alumi-


num cans to sell for scrap to
raise the money to buy a dia-
mond before Saturday, so I sup-
,pose that is out.

I TOLD YOU I knew nothing
about the protocol of being in-
volved in a golden anniversary
celebration and I didn't get any
help or suggestions from my
daughters along these lines. So
far as I know, I just happen to be
along for the ride.
What use is the -husband at
these soirees, anyhow? When I
was married, I HAD to be' there;
you know, to sign the wedding
certificate and pay the bill. It
would probably have been better


if I had missed the wedding cere-
mony. I only had $45.00 in my
pocket at the time and the
preacher performing the ceremo-
ny nearly took all of that!
Another of my daughters has
shopped for three weeks to -get
Frenchie just the right dress,
shoes and socks to wear at the
reception. The other day she
came by the house lugging the re-
sults of her latest effort and said,
"I finally found the right combina-
tion to.fit your personality."
I asked where was my outfit.
if appearance was so important.
She said, "Just get your brown
suit cleaned and pressed and
shine your Sunday shoes."


.That sorta' grabbed me right
here, you know.
She had to add, "That'll go
best with what Mother is going to
wear," -

.NOW, I KNEW the man in-
volved in this adventure of being
married for 50 years. just didn't
count. He's merely a figurehead.
He is expected to stand'two steps
behind the lady and just keep his
mouth shut.
Frenchie was being provided
with a new outfit-color coded
and .all-and I was relegated to
getting'my "veteran" brown suit
cleaned and pressed and shine
Smyshoes!
S Like Rodney Dangerfleld, I
Ssaw right quick I wasn't going to
-. get any respect. I was just a nec-
essary by-stander,. This was a
lady's affair :, :.

STO EMPHASIZE JUST how
much of a ladies' affair observing
, a golden anniversary is, the first I


knew abu th "hpeig was_


knew about the "happening" was
when we went to Spokane, Wash-
ington two weeks ago. I saw an
invitation, inviting the William-
sons' to attend, sitting on their
mantle.
It said they didn't have to
bring a gift! Well, that isn't my
idea of a true-blue golden anni-
versary celebration! They should
be expected to bring a gift, don't
you think?
Maybe a little bit of a cash
donation to help me buy that dia-
mond my daughter said I'm sup-
posed to get Frenchie. .
How can I be expected to buy
it all by myself off my social se-
curity check?
It doesn't seem like 50 years
since Frenchie and I were mar-
ried. It seems like it was just five
years or so ago that we tied the
knot, after she chased me all
through our high school years to-
gether. But, it must be so; our
eldest son is 48 years old now, so
mere arithmetic would verify the


fact that it has been 50 years

I'M GOING TO attend the big
bash on Saturday and dutifully
stand just to the rear of Frenchie
in the receiving line, sagely nod-
ding to everyone'who comes
through the reception line.
I'll even say a few words of
"thank you" to the inevitable ones
who observe that, 'you don't look
old enough to have been married
50 years" Some people are more
cognizant of such subtle signs
than others, and express them-
selves.
Of course they are probably
thinking, "doesn't she look nicel It
seems she.could have done better
than to marry that old wreck of a
man. Just look at him. Has he no
pride? Why I'll bet that suit he's
wearing is at least two years old.
It looks like he could have sprung
for a new one for such an occa-
sion as this Why, I hear he didn't
even buy her a diamond But,
don't his shoes look nicel"

Fire Damages
Mobile Home
A fire of undetermined origin
did minor damage to a mobile
home located on the grounds of
Gulf Correctional- Institution,
north of Wewahitchka. The fire
occurred last Friday, Sept 27, at
approximately 1:30 p.m.
A trustee of the correctional
facility noted smoke coming from
the unoccupied dwelling, and
reported it to prison officials, who
immediately called the Wewa-
hitchka Fire Department. The
prompt response of the depart-
ment kept damage to a minimum
to the sink and kitchen cabriet
area of the mobile home.
The blaze is under investiga-
tion by the state fire marshal, the
Gulf County Sheriffs Office, and
the Gulf Correctional Institution.

Two lives, two hearts were
joined together In friendship and
united forever in love, as Julie

David Newman were united in
marriage on Saturday, September

at The Basilica of Saint Lawrence
in Asheville, North Carolina. The
rite of marriage was performed by

Shubert during the seating of the
mothers. Sue Hanlon, special
aunt of the bride, was seated in

grandmother, Cora Whitfleld,
deceased.

ceded by the flower girls, Anisa

cial friend, Ken Elliott.

with the exchange of vows, bless-
ing and exchange of rings, and

dle, during which the musician
sang, "There Is Love", by Stookey.
Following the final blessing, the
couple exited to the recessional

Wewahitchka's defeat of dis-

the Gators, combining for 302
yards rushing and touchdown
runs of 75 and 55 yards, respec-
tively.
Mincy's 55 yard run came
with less than one minute expired
in the first quarter on Wewa's
third play for scrimmage. Taking
the ball from quarterback Champ
Traylor on a dive play, Mincy out
ran Sneads' defenders to the end
zone. Josh Baxley's extra point
was good and Wewa took an early
7-0 lead.

First Phase of Dove'

Season Opens Saturday


For most dove hunters the
fields have been located and now
It's a matter of waiting' until
Saturday, October 5 the opening
day of the dove season. The bag
limit for dove is 12 birds daily,
with no more than four of the
birds being white-winged doves.
Florida's three-phase dove
season this year is October 5 to
28. November 16'to December 1,
and December 14 to January 12.
SShooting during the first phase
will be legal from noon until sun-
!-set and during the remaining two
phases from 1/2 hour before sun-
rise until sunset.
In 1993 the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission's five
commissioners decided to open
the northwest region's dove sea-
-_son two weeks earlier than the
r emainder of the state but this
'year they reversed that decision
:after public opinion surveys
showed a majority of the hunting
public wanted the season
returned to its historic dates.
The vast majority of dove
hunting takes place on private
fields, but wildlife biologist Bill
Sermons said fields on three'
wildlife management areas will be
open to hunting on October 5th.
.;-The open fields will be on the
SBlackwater WMA Field Trial Area
in Santa Rosa County, Apalachee
WMA in Jackson County and
.Apalachicola WMA in Franklin,
Leon, Liberty and Wakulla coun-
ties.
Dove hunters on the
Apalachee area will find more
than 300 acres of corn, peanuts,
sorghum and soybeans. Sermons
said local farmers lease the fields
and they may not have harvested
all the fields by October 5.
While the entire Apalachicola
WMA is open to dove hunting, two
fields in Liberty County are plant-
ed in browntop millet. The fields
Share located, near the intersection
of Forest Roads 105 and 121.
When the Joe Budd WMA


opens to hunting October 9, he
said hunters will find five fields
planted-': in browntop millet.
Sermons said hunters must
check in to hunt the area and
only 110 hunters will be allowed
each day during the small game
season.
"Dove Hunting
The Right Way"
The U. S. Fish and Wildlife
Service offers a free brochure,
"Dove Hunting the Right Way,' for
all interested dove hunters. Phase
i of the dove season in Florida
begins on Saturday, October 5th
and hunters are responsible for
knowing all the regulations before
stepping out onto a field with '~
gun.
For a copy of the brochure,
please enclose a self-addressed,

AViews On Dental health

FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.


Stopping The


Chain Reaction


If you want to save your
teeth, you'll need your dentist's
help to stop the chain reaction
that often begins with gum dis-
ease. The disease,can be de-
ceptive, because you may feel
hardly any discomfort at all inr its
early stages. By the time you're
aware of occasional bleeding of
the gums, however, this disease
may have already become well
established. Left untreated,
bleeding gums may ultimately
lead to destruction of the under-
lying bone. This may cause your
teeth to loosen or abscess and
eventually can lead to tooth
loss.
Gum disease should never
be ignored or left untreated.


When bacteria invade your
mouth and are allowed to thrive
uncontrolled, they quickly multi-
ply and intensify their efforts in
destroying gum tissue. Once
they have achieved a firm hold
in your mouth, routine dental
care at home may not be able to
stop the destruction. That's why
regular dental checkups are rec-
ommended. If you want to save
your teeth, seek the profession-
al help available from your den-
tist.

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

October 19th at Sam Atkins Park

For the past decade, this old-
fashioned family festival has
drawn thousands to Calhoun

October. While adults enjoy shop-
ping at -the outdoor arts & crafts
market featuring over 100 ven-
dors, children spend their time

Coach Cannon said. 'We have a
boy on the squad who missed
practice without what we call a
good excuse, now, and he is do-
ing some extra running after the
regular practice session to make
up for It." he continued.
The coach said the Shark
squad is down a little bit this
year. 'We have only 22 varsity
players instead of the usual 30 or
so. We're trying to rebuild.by en-

advised. that grade average re-

climb over the next two years to a
plateau of a 2.0 requirement. The
average has been advanced to 1.6

Of the Sharks' schedule,
Coach Gannon said, "The first
half of our season is a tough

have to play. But it should get us

Arizona Chemical Awards $12,125 In Public Grants

Gulf County Guidance Clinic, Gulf District Schoool Board Get Lion's Share of Grant Funds For Programs


On behalf of the employees at
the Port St Joe plant, Arizona
Chemical will award $12,125 in
1996 grants through the Interna-
tional Paper Company Founda-
tion. Arizona Chemical is a spe-
cialty products business of
International Paper.
Three public service organiza-
tions in Gulf County will receive
the grants for new or expanded
programs in education, arts,
human, care, public safety and
,environmental awareness.
"These grants represent one
way Arizona Chemical can be a
good neighbor," said Jim Ceder-


na, general manager. "Through
financial grants such as these
and the volunteer efforts of our
employees, we can help create a
better quality of life in the com-
munities where we operate."
Grant recipients, amount
funded and intended use are:
*Gulf- County Guidance
Clinic, Inc. ($5,000)-To provide
80 counseling sessions and five
field trips to Gulf County families
who are involved in the Juvenile
Justice Partnership Program.
*Gulf District School Board
($5,000)-To improve the science
curriculum in grades 3-6.


S*Science Screen Report-Port
St. Joe ($2,125)-To provide the
Science Screen Report to schools
in Franklin and Gulf counties.
"These organizations are key
players in the development of our
children and the community,"
said Clark Davis, plant manager-
at Port St. Joe. "Their contribu-
tions to education and public ser-
vice make them obvious choices
for foundation grants."
The Gulf County Guidance,
Clinic serves individuals and fam-
ilies experiencing difficulties
ranging from minor life adjust-
ment problems to severe mental


health concerns. The clinic's
Juvenile Justice Partnership
Program provides structured
early intervention for juveniles
who are "at risk" for entering thie
juvenile justice system.
"Our counseling sessions
involve visiting the youth in the
program at their homes to engage
the entire family in the process,"
said Edwin Alles, the clinic's exec-
utive director. "This active
approach is tougher from a finan-
cial standpoint, and this grant
from Arizona Chemical makes all
the difference in our efforts to
build family cohesiveness and
help these kids be their best."
Steve Lawrence, production
:supervisor and 21-year veteran of
the Port St. Joe plant said Arizona
* Chemical takes corporate citizen-
ship very seriously.
"The guidance clinic provides
many services to the citizens of
Gulf County," he said. "As an
employee of Arizona Chemical, it
makes me proud to see our com-
pany involved in our community."
Arizona Chemical will con-
tribute more than $131,725 in
foundation grants through its
% domestic locations this year. More
than half of the funding will come
to the Florida Panhandle through
Arizona Chemical locations in
Panama City, Pensacola and Port
St. Joe. Last year, Arizona
Chemical contributed a total of
$85,000 in grants through the
Foundation.

It Was Misery's Last Stand ...


Third grade loomed ahead of
me and 'Zanna like a big, hissing
viper. We loved school, but in our
town there was only one teacher
for third grade, had been for 50
years, Mrs. Carolyn Miserae.
Ms. Carolyn had been a local
girl whose parents had been well-
off enough to send her to Europe
for the 'rounding off of her educa-
tion, and to get culture. Well, she
not only got culture, but she also
got herself a French husband,
Jacques Miserae. He and she
hadn't quite hit it off, so he high-
tailed it back to France after a few
years _of Southern exposure.
There were no Miserae children.
Now, I'm sure that there was
some really nice way to pro-
nounce Ms. Carolyn's last'name.
But ensuing years and assorted,
passed-down horror tales had
instilled in the children she
taught a mental block. When Ms.
Carolyn was young, no doubt,
she'd tried to tell folks the proper
French pronunciation. When she
was a year from retirement, when
'Zanna and I had got her, we all
pronounced the name like the
word "misery". And she did her
level best to make sure all of her
pupils learned that vocabulary
word to the full if they did nothing
else that year. She had a real
effective teaching strategy: She
made them live it.
"Zanna and I had seriously
discussed the situation from the
time we knew we had gotten pro-
moted. We thought of exotic ill-
nesses we could fake so we could
be home schooled, and then dis-
carded the thought. Our mothers
were too sharp for that, and were
of the opinion that suffering
molded your character. Only, they
meant that children were to suf-
fer. If we made them suffer, we got

tests than students who have no
daily homework assignments.'
In order for homework to be
meaningful, there should be regu-
lar homework assignments in all
classes-vocational as well as acad-
emic-to engage a student for an
hour or more each day. Homework
assignments that are relevant to
the real world and require more
than simply answering questions or
reading' material from a textbook
are especially meaningful. Home-
work assignments should be
reviewed/graded by the teacher on
a regular basis so as not to be
thought of as "busy work".
Examples of creative homework
assignments Include:
*Computer students fill a
scrapbook with bills, letters, and
other materials mailed by busi-
nesses to people's homes. Students
examine the correspondence to
Identify modern computer tech-
niques.
*Students in a health/science
class keep a weekly diary of what
they eat and calculate the calories
and cholesterol. They use mathe-
matics to cut a favorite family
recipe In half or double it. ,
Homework is something par-
ents should insist on because it is
"good for you". Not only does it help"
to develop good study habits and
self discipline, it is a proven tool for
Increasing academic performance.
Homework today insures a brighter.

Students Of The Week
Congratulations to our
"Students of the Week"... Anelise
Cimino, Morgan Wood, Dusty
Alford, Kayleigh Lewis, Kyla
Moore, Sam Amerson and Adrian
Peterson.
Positive Action
Our Positive Action word for
the week Is. CURIOUS. When It
comes to. science, focus on the
process of science rather than
specific skills, facts and fixed out-
comes.
Kids are natural explorers.
Science is about asking, good
questions, creating. hypothe.ses.
keeping careful observations, set-
ting up situations 'fhiat test your'
theory and adjusting your theory
as new facts emerge.
It's not particularly important
that your child get the idea that a
paper airplane's flight is deter-
mined by wind resistance. What
is important is that she/he devel-
op the ability to form hypotheses,


ask questions to test them out
(what would happen if .?) and
begin to observe patterns and reg-
ularities for which she can then
offer explanations,
Report Cards
The first nine weeks grading
period ends Wednesday, October
16th. Report cards will be sent

ent/teacher conference, please

Scan Haney Is The Third
Grade "Student Of The Week"
Marlene Whitfleld chose nine
year old, Sean Haney, as the
'Student of the Week". He Is the
son of Gall and Glen Haney and
claims running as his favorite
thing to do. He would like to be a
truck driver when he grows up
because he thinks it would be fun
and also fun to travel.
He likes to play with his
brother, Glenn. Some of his
favorites are: t.v. show, football;
color, red; and song, "Dangerous
Minds". He would like to visit New
Hampshire again. He said, "I like
my school, P.E., break, and sci-
ence. I have lots of friends in
Florida, but I'd still like to visit
New Hampshire again."
Mrs. Whitfleld says that,
"Sean follows classroom and
school rules. He works hard and
is always prepared. He has a pos-
itive attitude and I feel honored to
be his teacher." Seanwill receive a
pizza from Howle's Pizza Kitchen
on Highway 71.
First Graders Go To The
Ostrich Farm ,
Three generations of the Lilly
family, Don, Joe, -and Josh, took
our first graders on a tour of the
Lilly Ostrich Farm at Scott's
Ferry. The group got-to see ostrich
eggs. baby ostriches, incubators,
and heard all about this very
strange bird. The Lillys are the
kin of retired teacher. Vera Lilly.
who taught second and third
grade at WES for many years.
Afterwards, the group jour-
neyed: to Sam Atkins Park in
Blountstown for a nice picnic.,
While there, they toured the
Pioneer Settlement and saw a log
house, blacksmith's shop, post
office, and old gym. The settle-


ment is not completed yet. but it
will be great when finished.
Teachers who went were Joyce
Quinn, Rhonda Pridgeon, and
Melanie Hinote.
Deepest Sympathy To The
Collins Family
Mr. Kelley and the entire staff
of WES offers its deepest sympa- '
thy to the family of Little Ricky
Collins. Ricky died on-Monday,
September 30 as the result of an
accident.
He was a student here for
seven years and all of us who'
taught him remember him as the
nicest little, boy. He' was always
smiling and doing his best in
school. He is the son of Ricky and
Carolyn Collins. He has a sister_
named Crystal..
Aboriginal For "I Don't
Know" Is Kangaroollll
The third grades have been
studying Australia for two weeks
in social studies. All of us have
learned a lot! One thing you might
not know is that when Captain
Cook first saw the strange looking
animal, the kangaroo, he pointed
to it and asked the Aborigines,
"What is the name of that ani-
iiiai" Quickly, they replied,
"Kangaroo". That means, "I don't
know!" The name stuck and today
the bounding marsupial still is a
kangaroo.,

Be Sure To Votel
Who you vote for is your busi-
ness, but it is a right that much of
the world still does not enjoy. So,
make your choice for sheriff,
superintendent, county commis-
sioner, school board member and
the numerous state and national
races that will be decided in
November. We don't always agree
on the winner, but once the voters
have spoken, everyone needs to
support the process by accepting
the results and them pulling
together to Improve the situation.
The Gators pulled another
surprise out of the hat by jumping
out 27-0 over Sneads, ranked in
the top 10, in the first half on a
very wet field. We were. able to
hang on and run the clock for a
final score of 27-14, That's two
weeks in a row that the underdog
Gators have upset ranked teams.
I think that speaks well for a team
limited in number, size, and expe-
.rience.
Cottondale, at 7:30 p.m., cen-
tral, will be our foe this week in
Cottondale. They are a very strong
2A team, barely losing to
Marianna two weeks ago and
,beating, Jay High last Friday.
Great size and. speed, plus they
love to pass from the shotgun
offense-as usual, we'll have our
hands full.
There's a J.V. game at 6 p.m.
at Gator Field Thursday against
Sneads J.V. Try to get out to the
game. Volleyball has a full sched-
ule, so many I can't list them all,
but the. girls will fill you in and
.we'lltry to get the home games on

"Calling to North Carolina"
By Amber Blevins
In a tradition of many years,
Faith Christian is once again
trekking up to Brevard, North
Carolina for a week, not only to
have fun and meet new people,
but also to receive God's Holy
Word.
While staying in the ever-lux-
urious' dormitories infested with
ladybugs; andeating the exquisite
meals imported from the Alps,
take a look at your inner-daring
streak. Have nothing but velcro
wrapped around you, dangling
from a cable wire, as you swoop
down eighty feet on the Human
Swing, the cement barely missing
your face, the cable wire repeti-
tiously flying you and your friend
through the air.. .
What a rush. Huh? Not feel-
ing that adventurous? Hike up to
the beautiful waterfalls-a hike
that is five miles round-trip.
There are many activities to par-
ticipate in that don't require a lot
of thinking and exercise, and are
just as much fun.
Aside from all the fun-filled
activities, soul-searching campers
go to Chapel twice a day.
Counselors Rand and Dan have a
great way of explaining the Word
of God in "our language and per-
spective." With a previous update.
I have learned that there will be
guest speakers during the week
we visit the WILDS.
Because the WILDS is "an
annual school trip, the only dost
is a little spending money ($30-40
is usually sufficient) for sou-
venirs, snacks, etc. Souvenirs
include t-shirts imprinted with
the WILDS logo, pens. stationary,
bookmarks, and fun things to do
on the way home.
This trip is for the 7-12
grades, and you (FCS students)
should have already received a
form to complete on attending the
'WILDS. If you have not received a
permission slip, please see Mr.
Louks. This isa fun trip for every-
one, so we can encourage all to
attend. Hope to see you there!
"Interview with Mrs. Nobles"
By Troy Phillips
Mrs: Nobles, our K-4 teacher,
is teaching at Faith Christian
School for the first time in her
career.
She wanted to teach at FCS
because she likes children and:


The

Lion's Tale
News Column
Faith Christian School

wanted to share her wisdom
about learning and the Lord.
When she is not in school
teaching, she is taking care of her
two boys or doing some of her
many hobbles such as riding
bikes and taking walks on the
beach with her husband.
Her favorite Bible verse is
Hebrews 11:1-3, "Now faith is the
substance of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen. For
by it elders obtained a good
report. Through faith we under-
stand that the worlds wire framed
by the word of God, so that things
which are seen were not.made of
things which. do appear." She
likes this verse because it sums
up faith.
We hope she has a good year
and many more while teaching
here at Faith Christian School.

A church in mission is a church which

Dear Counselor.
My sixteen year old daughter
has been displaying a lot of argu-
mentative behavior and has started
doing poorly in school. We have con-
sistent conflicts at home, and I am
beginning to think that the prob-
lems are getting worse.
I recently called to schedule her
for some counseling, but the coun-
selor told me that it would be best if
the entire family came inA instead of
just bringing my daughter.
: 'do not understand why my
wife and 1 both need to go in and
why my nine year old son and other
three year old daughter need to be
present for the counseling. Please
let me know your thoughts on this.
Signed,
Confused Dad'
Dear Dad,


Many counselors or therapists
today believe that family therapy is
the most effective method for mak-
ing changes. First, families care
about and know their members the
best. When everyone meets together
with the therapist. all the informa-
tion is made available to the thera-
pist much more quickly than if each
person were seen separately. Since
families care the most about each
other, this love and concern shown
for each other in therapy can be a
most powerful way for initiating and
continuing change.
As you pointed out, your family
Is also in "conflict", and there are
- probably many communication dif-
flculties that have arisen. In family,
therapy, each family member can
participate in learning more effec-
tive ways to communicate. fIt is
important for everyone to be pre-
sent, even the small children, so
that everyone's ideas and feelings

can be considered.
Furthermore, everyone's partic-
ipation in counseling can often
times help to prevent other minor
Adjustment difficulties that may
arise as the change process occurs.
I believe that you will find family
therapy to be the quickest and the
most effective way to make the
Changes that you are looking for.
When everyone participates in
the counseling, this may also help
to reduce some of the resistance
that any teenager may express on
going to counseling. It will show"
your daughter that everyone is con-
cerned: It will help you and your
wife to be as consistent as possible
in your approach: and it will help
the children to see that everyone
shares in the responsibility of
healthy family functioning.
Family therapy is available at
the Gulf County Guidance Clinic,
and is available through many other
private practioners in our area. Your
family's concerns and efforts at
dealing with these difficulties now
will not only help your daughter,
but will likely strengthen your entire
family. Best wishes.

AT& T Issues



Alert on Scams


AT&T said last week that two
new scams are deceiving people
into calling high-cost numbers in
the Caribbean when responding
to telephone paging or to employ-
ment ads that yield worthless
information.
"These schemes are the latest
in a never-ending series of
attempts by con-artists to line.
their pockets by tricking unsus-
pecting people into dialing record-
ed messages that offer no real'
value," said Rich Petillo, AT&T
corporate security manager.
In one scam, 'thousands. of
pager customers have received
pages to dial a number in the 809
area code in the Caribbean. When
people call, they receive an offen-
sive recorded message.
"We blocked calls over the
AT&T network to a pager scam
number in the Dominican
Republic that was clearly fraudu-
lent," Petillo said. "People who get
paged to call a number in the 809
area code should be wary and
should immediately hang up if
they answer a page and hear a
strange recording."
In another recent ruse,
employment ads for Jobs such as
"mystery shoppers" list a domes-


tic number, which has a recording
referring callers to an 809 area
code number. A recording on that
number contains a long-winded
message that refers to companies
that supposedly offer Jobs for
shoppers who check on store
quality. When people call those
companies, which are legitimate
businesses, there are no jobs to
be had. The companies don't even
know they are mentioned on the
recording.
. "The Federal Trade Commis-
sion is investigating ads promis-
ing jobs or prizes, and the Federal
Communications Commission
has'proposed making all such
calls 900 numbers since most
consumers know 900 calls involve
special charges," Petillo said. "In
the meantime, people should be
suspicious of any ads or phone
recordings that refer them to
international area codes such as
809, 268 and 664 or to numbers
that start with the international
access code 011."
In both the pager and ad
scams, suppliers of recorded
information profit from revenue
shared with them by the overseas
phone company.
The telecommunications in-
dustry estimates that fraud costs
about $2 billion a year.

Who'S Cooking-and Where?


Did you know that the French are the
only Europeans who care about
keeping fruits and vegetables fresh in
their refrigerators?
So claims "How Europe Cooks," a-
recent.study of 40,000 consumers by
Whirlpool Europe, revealing many
other national differences in appliance
usage. For example...
Throughout Europe, men cook less
than women.
Two-thirds of British men polled had
cooked a meal in the previous week.
Most Italians only use the oven once
a week, on Sundays, when they
prepare lasagna, cannelloni, or veal
roast; otherwise they cook pasta dishes
on the burner.
Germans use, the ovenl most in
Europe, often up to three times a
week. .
"The British use dibijiler upi tohalf,
ah hour every day, often in the
mornings.
Germans cook the fewest meals; the
British cook the most.
Spaniards worry about the accuracy
of the cooking timer on ranges.
Italians are the only Europeans to.
regard child safety as vital.


v deryone, except the British, cares
about the smell from a microwave
oven during use. '
Single men in Italy and Spain are
considerably more likely to buy a
washing machine or range than single,
women.
Britons have the most microwave
ovens but the fewest dishwashers.

THE DPM
The foot Is a complex part of
the body and it Is subject to many
kinds of disorders and injuries. A
podiatrist Is the specially trained
health-care professional who con-
centrates expertise on diagnosing
and treating problems affecting the
feet.
In order to become a doctor'of
podiatric medicine (DPMI. the typi-
cal podiatrist earns an appropriate
degree at a four-year college, then
studies for four more years at a
college of podiatric medicine and
spends one or two more years in
residency at a hospital or other in-
stltutlon.


In addition .
to a specialized
education in the
anatomy and
professional
care of the feet, CA
ankles and lower legs, a podiatrist'
also receives conventional medical
training. While many foot prob-
lems are localized conditions,
many others are related to overall
health problems, such as diabetes
or arthritis.

of better foot care by:
