WARD RIDGE SUBDIVISION is going to be provided with a
water and sewer system for the first time since the community
was established nearly 40 years ago. The few homes which were
initially\built there, originally depended upon wells for water and
septic tanks to provide sanitary services. This wasn't the best of
circumstances, but it was better than the alternative.
The people of Ward Ridge have sought to tie on to the servic-
es offered by the City of Port St. Joe for many of those 40 years.
Several years ago sewer and water services were furnished a por-
tion of the subdivision by its developer, George Tapper.
A few years passed by with this arrangement in place and
the retirement apartments at the eastern limits were built,
prompting the installation of even more services, as they were
furnished the apartments. Still, all of Ward Ridge was not
BY THIS TIME, THE people of the community were'begin-
ning to lust after the conveniences enjoyed by others. Some loca-
tions had them and others didn't. Those who had them were the
envy of those who didn't.
This situation prompted a movement to be inaugurated, ask-
ing for Ward Ridge to be incorporated into the City of Port St.
Joe. The thinking behind the movement was that such an inclu-
sion would hurry the day along when Ward Ridge, too, would
have these two coveted services.
SThat day has arrived!
The establishment of a Port St. Joe campus by Gulf Coast
'Community College adjacent to Highway 98 at the extreme east-
ern boundary line of Ward Ridge is proving to be the nudge the
city needed to get serious about extending its sanitary services,
S.'and making arrangements with the Tapper heirs-owner of most
- of the vacant property and potential homesites in Ward Ridge-
to make such a venture financially feasible.
PORT ST. JOE WILL have a large responsibility with.the ex-
pansion eastward through Ward Ridge. It will.be responsible for
providingitreated, HRS-approved, potable drinking water to most
:of south Gulf County; the Beaches, White City,, Oak Grove, and
now, Ward Ridge. This, is quite a responsibility and not one to be

WITH THE COMING of our marina and the complete over-
haul of Reid Avenue, the street, sidewalks, street lights, parking

will have something to be proud of, too.

varies from October to November
in North Florida to late November
and December in South Florida.
South Florida is usually so warm
that permanent lawngrasses don't
go dormant. However, they may
discolor enough to justify the use
of ryegrass for winter color.
To prepare a lawn for over-
seeding, mow the permanent
grass very close and rake to
remove as much debris as possi-
ble. Close mowing will help to
remove some of the spongy debris
(thatch). If the lawn has excessive
thatch, dethatching with a verti-
cal mower or power rake would be
desirable. A heavily thatched lawn
tends to result in irregular over-
The next step is to broadcast
10 pounds of ryegrass seed per
1,000 square feet of surface area
with a fertilizer spreader and rake'
lightly to ensure that the seed
gets through the grass and in
contact with the soil. For best cov-
erage apply half the seed in one
direction and the rest at a right
angle to the first application.
Watering is the last, but most
important step ii establishing a
winter lawn. Writer should be
applied lightly and carefully to the
seeded lawn once or twice a day
until the seeds have germinated
and the seedlings, are well estab-
lished. Reduce waterings to an as-
needed basis after the second
Once the winter lawns estab-
lished, it will require the same
maintenance as a permanent
lawn:. This includes: mowing,
watering, fertilizing, and control-
ling pests. Begin mowing when
the grass is about two inches tall.
The first application of fertilizer
should be made after the second
mowing and additional applica-
tions should be made on a month-
ly basis thereafter. Apply fertilizer
at one half the rate you would
normally use on your permanent
If cared for properly, ryegrass
will provide a dense, beautiful
lawn throughout .the winter.
When the weather begins to warm
up in the spring, ryegrass will
normally die and the permanent
lawngrass should begin growing.
However,' if the weather remains
cool and the lawn is watered fre-
quently, ryegrass can persist and
weaken the permanent lawn-

The Marine Fisheries Com-
mission held a public meeting
October 7-9 in Islamorada and
took the following action:
MULLET EMERGENCY RULE
The Commission passed an
emergency rule for approval by
the Governor and Cabinet that
-establish the only allowable
gear that can be used at any time
for the harvest of mullet as:
*cast nets with a radius no
greater than 12 feet, 7 inches (no
more than two such nets could be
fished from any vessel at a time)
*beach or haul seines with a
total area rio greater than 500
S square feet-including any at-
t tached material that adds to the
y fishing surface of the net, such as
a tarpaulin/plastic (no more than
, two such unconnected nets could
rt be fished from any vessel at any
*hook and line gear, and gigs
L:l -eliminate the commercial clo-
id sure to the harvest of mullet on
id' four weekdays in late December
t- that fall between weekend clo-
)t. -change weekend commercial
ie mullet harvest closures to begin
at 4:00 p.m. on Fridays and end
at 8.00 a.m. on Mondays.
A similar rule was passed by
the Commission in August, how-
ever the rule was challenged by
fishermen in North Florida, and
the rule was 'withdrawn from
Governor and Cabinet considera-
tion until the challenge is settled.
The effects of this proposed
emergency action would be to pre-
vent the large scale introduction
of alternative gear such as tar-
paulin, plastics, etc., in the mullet
fishery for a period of 90 days'
during the current roe mullet
fishing season, and to support the
developing small scale cast
net/seine mullet fishery.
The Commission will take this
proposed emergency rule to the
F Governor and Cabinet for
Approval on November 7, and the
S ruile would take effect on this date

President of the U. S. but 3
seats on the city council as

invited all the candidates to
share their views on issues,
and as usual for the city, the
discussion was a bit heated.
According to candidate Mike
Norman, "Things sometimes
get out of hand, but it's been
that way for years. If you ask
me, its time for voters to 'get
together and leave the
nastiness out of it. There are a
lot of important issues, like
city sewage, paving, and
drainage that we have to focus
on." Mr. Norman said that any
big issue that comes before the
council involving hundreds of
thousands of dollars should
have the approval of a majority
of citizens before the council
votes on it.

Floye Brewton, Former Port St. Joe Resident, Restores Historic
Ely-Criglar Mansion in Marianna; Old House is Brewton's 7th Project
Built in 1840, Old Mansion Said to be Oldest and Largest Brick Mansion Between St. Augustine and Mobile;
Old Mansion Has Been on National Registry of Historic Places Since 1971-Originally Built For Francis Roulhac Ely
-One of Marianna's loveliest
historic gems-the Ely-Criglar
Mansion on West Lafayette
Street-is being repolished.
Built in 1840, the Greek
Revival Mansion is being lovingly
restored by Marianna business
man Floye Brewton, historic
restoration contractor, antiques
collector and a partner inthe firm
that owns the Best Western,
Comfort and Hampton Inns on I-
10 at Marianna Exit 21.
Brewton is already living in
the house, which will be his pri-
vate residence. It is the seventh
historic structure that he has
restored in: Marianna. The
restoration has, followed the
guidelines of the National Register
of Historic Places. The mansion
has been on the National Register
Also involved in the restora-
tion are architect Phillip Spann of
Sea Grove Beach, decorator
Karan Etheredge .of ,Dothan,
Alabama, and subcontractor Mike
lyus of Marianna, described by
Brewton as a "master restorer."
The last owners of the Ely-
Criglar Mansion were Floie Criglar
Packard and Julia Criglar, who
inherited it from their mother,
Nella Russ Criglar. Their father,
Joseph M. Criglar, was a lumber
'man who owned mills in Jackson,
Liberty and Franklin counties. He
was the son of William Louis
Criglar (1816-1893), prominent
lumber man and state senator
from Santa Rosa County in the
Julia Criglar's death a few
years ago and Mrs. Packard's
poor health caused their heirs-
who: have never lived in
Marianna-to make the heart-
wrenching decision : to sell the
mansion that had been in their
family since 1900. ,i
Because of Brewton's reputa-
tion as a historic preservationist,
the heirs selected him as the pur-
chaser of the mansion, its three
acres of grounds and the majority
of the Criglar family antiques and
heirlooms, which were accumu-
Slated over several generations.
Brewton is supplementing the;
furnishings with choice 18th and,
early 19th Century pieces of his
own. -'f "' '
SBrewton says the Ely-Criglar
Mansion is one of the oldest and
largest brick structures between
St. Augustine and Mobile,
Alabama. Even the interior walls
are.of handmade brick-12 inch-
es thick. That presented some
problems when Brewton was
rewiring, replumbing and adding
central heating and air condition-
ing. Brewton's philosophy Is to
preserve where possible and
restore only where necessary, but
make the historic structures liv-
able for another hundred years-
with functional kitchens, bath-;.
rooms, utilities, heating and cool-
ing.. ..... .
The front portico, which runs
the width of the house, is domi-
nated by four square columns..
Rising above the second story is a:
full Doric entablature with an
elaborate cornice. A second floor
balcony that overhangs the porti--
co is set off by a diamond pat-
terned wooden balustrade.
Floors, doors,. stairway and
:woodwork are of yellow heart
pine. The paneled doors in the
brick part of the mansion are held
together by pegs and contain their
original brass fittings. Keys for
these doors are over five inches
long. Nails used in the construc-
tion of the house were square
headed and handmade. Most of

Will the public ever get to see
the impressive interior of the Ely-'

they will, but the viewings will

house were originally gas fixtures,
which were rewired for electricity
in later years. Most of the door

This Week's Area Fishing Report
For October 13 Thru October 20
The kings were following the bait closer to shore and were feeding big
time in preparation for their annual fall run south. All fishermen that put
lines in the water had good catches of kings and nice spanish. Also, there
are still plenty of grouper on the larger reefs that are close in. The trigger
fish are back and very hungry. Try a smaller hook and bait to catch these
fine eating fish. The flounder are bunching up good and will take grubs
or live bait. Some will hit strips of squid orfish, but live mud minnows or
small pinfish are best.:
The redfish are still in deeper water feeding on crabs, etc., but the
specs are biting better each day. Very soon when the big chill arrives, the
specs will bunch up in the channel, oil docks, and deep holes.
There is some excellent fishing coming up in the next few weeks, both
offshore and Inshore.

So, your child has overbite
(sometimes known as "buck
teeth"). This malformation in the
normal bite structure can alter
the development of many
For example, your child will
have to learn to pronounce
sounds, especially those of "s",
"f" and "th", in a different way.
The manner of swallowing and
the placement of the tongue will
have to be altered because the
upper and lower teeth do not
meet properly. Normal chewing
will also have to be changed-
not only because the front teeth
don't mesh, but because the
.back (chewing) teeth do not
mesh the way they should.
The longer a person has
overbite, the more damage that
can result. An overbite can be
treated when it is first noted. If
the condition is severe enough,
very early treatment (age three
or four) might be instituted.
However, the normal age to
begin treatment of an overbite is
normally in the range of seven
to 10. Any delay in treatment
might mean that it may be too
late to get the best results.

gone," Judge Moore said. "In its
place society now has the Depart-
' ment of Juvenile Justice meting
out punishment to offending j uve-
:niles. They are treated very
harshly by former standards.
They receive tough treatment,
just like adults."
Judge Moore said the rules
began to change in 1994, with a ,
focus on punishment, rather than
just talking to offenders. 'Youths
as young as 14 years of age can
now be tried as adults in certain
.cases," the judge said.
Moore said that convicted
youths can now expect harsh
treatment for their transgres-
sions. They can receive anything
from supervised parole to incar-
ceration in "Boot Camps' where
they receive very controlled and
disciplined treatment. 'There is
nothing easy, about the punish-
ment they 'receive today," the
speaker said. "In many cases they
are sentenced to having to wear
an electronic device 24 hours a
day with their movements strictly
supervised as well as monitored.".
A juvenile sentenced to "com-
munity control" means super-
vised probation. ,The phrase
"Juvenile detention" means boot
camp or doing ime in Jail; Judge
Moore told his audience. "In ei-
ther case, it Isn't pretty," he said.
Juvenile justice people have
taken a new tack with potential
juvenile offenders, according to
Judge Moore. An Intense move-
ment is now being tried to keep
kids out of juvenile detention
through a Juvenile justice council,
"and It appears to be bearing
fruit." he said.
"By showing an interest In
prospective juvenile delinquents,
they are being steered away from
delinquency and shown an alter-
native," he said.
"In Gulf County, we have an
active juvenile Justice council that:
Is having very positive results. Its.
director Is Melissa Ramsey," he;,:

Certainly the 1/2c sales tax refer-'
endum deserves your support.
The dollars raised locally by this
small increase will be used to pay
off a bond issue needed to com-
pletely renovate PSJ Elementary
When- the bonds are retired,
this 1/2c tax will go away. It can't
be used for anything else unless,
you vote to do so. Much of the
money will come froni visitors to
Gulf County-just as Bay County
benefits from you paying sales tax
(at a higher rate) when Gulf
County folks spend their money
in Bay County.
To do this much-needed pro-
ject, which will benefit thousands
of Gulf County children, we need
to vote for this 1/24 measure. It is
the fairest way to raise the needed
funds as the local level. Let's sup-
port school improvement for our
children by giving all of them a
decent environment in which to

Group Takes The Show On
The Road ...
To see first hand some of the
jobs and helpers in our local com-
munity, we took a field trip to the
fire station and spoke with Scott
Baker who showed the children
his fire suit and how he must put
on oxygen tanks to fight some
types of fires.
He also showed the children
how to crawl on the floor to avoid
smoke and fire, and told them not
to hide from the firemen if there
should ever be a fire at their
homes. The firemen were there to
help them, not to be afraid.
Our next stop took us to Gulf
Pines Hospital where we took a
tour of the facilities and saw the
emergency room, where Mrs.

would take more time than they would care to

After seeing your Project
I.O.P.E. ad In the local newspaper.
I decided to wrrite your office. My
family was living on Cape San Bias
during Hurricane Opal.
My husband had most of his
tools, paperwork, and other person-
al items stored in a shed destroyed
by Opal. These things were not
insured, and he had a total loss. He
never thought to apply for help from
the federal government. He is still
having problems from: that storm.
At night, he still has dreams about
Storms coming on shore and wiping
out everything we have.
My little boy's dog. Runty, was
lost in 'the storm. He was outside
when Opal came ashore, and we
never saw him again. My son still
talks a lot about his dog, even
though we bought him another one.
In fact, sometimes he even cries at,
night and calls out the dog's name
when he's sleeping. I try talking to
him about Runty, and hope his bad
feelings will go away, but they don't.
The water from Opal flooded
our entire house, and I lost a lot of
antiques that were stored in card-.
board boxes. Then, the water ruined
the carpets, the walls, and most of
our furniture. We did receive a little
help from the government, but we
could never replace what we lost
with that money.
Is there anything that your
office can do for'us? Your ad in the
paper indicated that you provide a
lot of services. However, we don't
have any extra money these days.
Dear Mrs. B,
Hurricane Opal had a devastat-
ing effect on a lot of families includ-
ing yours. The feelings that your
husband, your son, and you are
manifesting are pretty normal
behavior after a traumatic experi-
ence like Opal.
Reliving the storm through
dreams can be upsetting, even
though it's normal. It is quite
understandable, especially since we
continue to hear about new tropical
storms or hurricanes this year.
The fact that your son still
misses his dog is also very normal.
It takes a while to deal with the loss
of a loved person or animal. The
replacement of the dog with a new
animal probably helps some, butit
won't entirely solve, the loss of
"Runty". Your son had a lot of close,
, personal experiences with hls'"first"
dog. Over time, he will most likely
have similar experiences and close
ties with his new dog, but it will take
-; You don't mention that you are
having related problems from Opal,
but you are personally involved with
the feelings your husband and son
are manifesting. The fact that the
hurricane flooded your house and
ruined your property certainly can
have long-term effects.
SSometimes just' talking with
friends or relatives helps us cope.
but other times we need profession-
al help. Our offices provide a com-
plete clinical staff-a psychiatrist.
counselors, and therapists. Some of
our services are grant-supported
and are free. For other services, you
may qualify for a discount to make
it more, affordable.

Cable Comes To
It was bound to happen I sup-
pose. Whisperings of it had been
going around for years. How some
folks in big cities got more than
two channels oh their t.v. sets. It
was called cablevision. We
even heard that some (gasp)
channels showed movies without.
Now, Uncle Clevus had a
problem with that. "When the
heck am I supposed to get anoth-
er cool one?" He'd ask no one in
particular. "I don't want anything
to do with it Sounds like a com-
munist plot to overthrow
Well, everything was a com-
munist plot to overthrow America
with Clevus, but still those whis-
perings went on. The majority of
the town, blissfully free of the
modem wonders of more techno-
logically advantaged areas slum-
bered on, happy with channel 4
and Channel 12, and occasional-
ly, if the weather was bad enough,
a channel from Panama City,

the first Aunt Ginny drove down,
had a long, closeted talk with the
gentleman, and then, before you
could say "heave ho" or "swallow
my tongue and hope to die" he
was out at her house getting her
hooked up. It was apparently a
fairly easy procedure, but
involved drilling a hole in her liv-
ing room wall to put a cord and
outlet in. Aunt Ginny took some
time figuring out where exactly
she wanted a hole in her precious
wall, but finally chose a spot. That
afternoon, she had 13 channels,
very clear on her television.
What this clean cut cable
salesman didn't realize was that
having Aunt Ginny endorse your
product in our town was tanta-
mount to having the President say
he liked that red hat you were
wearing with the McDonald's
emblem. After Aunt Ginny signed
up, everybody wanted cable, and'
they wanted it that day. He sud-
denly had 6000 families demand-.
ing his services. He got overtime,
I'm sure, and he called every
spare person to help him meet the
demand. Suddenly there were
"cable guys' everywhere, hooking
Aunt Ginny's enchantment
with cable didn't last long howev-
er, and interestingly enough she
was also the first one to ask that
her service be cut off. This, how-
,ever did not cause a mass deluge
,of cut-off orders. Folks liked hav-
ing 13 channels, and no amount-,
of Aunt Ginny's influence or any-
one else's was going to hinder
them. The nice fella who came,to
her house to hook her up made a
personal visit prior to unhooking
the cable, to find out what the
"I'm not interested in all those, '
channels," was Aunt Giny's terse
"What about the all-news
channel? Folks like to know
what's going on in the world," the

time. "What about the weather

fierce weather 'round these parts.
Pays to, know what the weather's
going to be like."
"If I want,to know what the
weather's going to be like, I'll look
out the window."
At this point, he gave up, and
very nearly considered cutting off
his own cable at home. Her logic
was Just that convincing.
Years later, there were 21
channels added, and right after
Aunt Ginny went on to her reward
there were 36. Aunt Ginny was
sitting in our hose for the inau-
gural episode '.'f MTV. She
watched for a second, threw a
hand to her chest, and said, in a
shocked voice, "Jesus, Just come
back soon, that's all I ask."

Ginny would think about 18 inch.

ers and the nternet. and all the
other wonders of this modem age.
She'd probably sputter and utter

ing about. Or maybe she'd want to
pick up the computer mouse and

SL Andrew's State Park in
Panama City will host the second
annual Nature's Gallery Festival
on November 9 and 10. This
eclectic festival combines the best
of today's artists and craftsmen
with a taste of the past
The two day festival, visited in
1994 by 15.000 people, celebrates
Florida art, crafts, environment
and history with a fine mixture of
past and present. Nature's
Gallery '95 was canceled when
Hurricane Opal slammed into the
Gulf Coast leaving the park and
surrounding area in no condition
to entertain guests. A disappoint-
ed Nature's Gallery committee
channeled its energy into prepa-
rations for the 1996 festival, and
is convinced that it will far out-
shine the very successful '94:
In Nature's Gallery '96 Florida
Pioneer Days will be brought to
life through primitive craft
demonstrations, and historical
reenactments. Visitors will travel
through the centuries to observe

and the candlemaker hard at

the daily chores of camp life, will
be separated by a few yards of
space and a few centuries of time

In the nearby Artist's Market
original artwork in numerous
mediums will be displayed with
the artists on hand to discuss
their work. Visitors can watch a
potter spin mud into art-and
even try their hand at this ancient
art if they are so inclined.
Many of the creatures native
to the North Florida forest and
shore will be on hand to tell the
story of life on the wild side. Betsy
Knight, a wildlife rehabilltator,
will exhibit many of Florida's
creatures, including bald eagles
The festival opens Saturday,
