Trick 'R' Treat


Merchants "Treating"

Kids To A Night Out

On The Town Tonight
The ghosts and goblins are scheduled to
walk, fly, slither, crawl, or materialize this
evening as All Hallow's Eve [Hallowe'en], is
observed across the nation.
"Trick or Treat!" will be the familiar bat-
tle-cry as the hordes of children flock the
various neighborhoods dressed in costumes
and holding out their trick or treat bags in
search of a sweet morsel or two.
In Port St. Joe trick or treat sessions will
be treated a little different, as it has been for
the past several years. The Merchant's Asso-
ciation will be sponsoring a gigantic trick or
treat session on Reid Avenue, beginning at
6:00 p.m., and continuing until seven-ish.
Various treats will be handed out by the







several merchants--many of whom you may
not recognize since they, too, will be dressed
in hallowe'en costumes.
BIG HALLOWE'EN PARADE
YA The evening will get underway with a
giant hallowe'en parade, south, on Reid Ave-
nue to show off the kids' imagination in their
hallowe'en get-up. [Parents can walk, too,
with their small children, if they want to.]
This hallowe'en celebration, sponsored by
your Downtown Merchants, has been ar-
ranged as a family affair. It is designed to

Board Makes Health Insurance


Affordable For 130 Employees

Action Taken In Special Meeting Held Thesday at Noon


During a special meeting held
Tuesday at noon. the Gulf County
Commission finalized steps to
make family insurance coverage
more affordable for the county's
130 employees.
Joe Nugent (Gulf County
,Sheriffs Department Captain)
had asked the board during.
insurance negotiations a few:
months ago if they could help find

a way to make family coverage
"affordable" for county workers.
The board agreed* with
Nugent's concerns and asked' the
insurance committee to evaluate
insurance quotes based on the
county contributing $125/month
toward family coverage. After all
the facts and figures were In, it
was discovered that the proposal
would push insurance expense
approximately $100,000 over
budget while leaving the employ-
ee's expense at somewhere in the
neighborhood of $25 per family.
Commissioner Warren Yeager
requested the board rescind his
earlier motion to pay $125/month
and consider an amended motion
for the county to pay up to $125
or one half, whichever is less, for
family coverage. The board unan-
imously adopted the amended
motion.

which, faces county voters Tues-
day, with a total of 22 questions
for them to make a decision on.


SALES TAX QUESTION
One of the most emotional
questions to face local voters will
be the half cent sales tax issue.
The Gulf County School Board
has proposed the levy of'such a
tax to pay for some much needed
renovations to Port St. Joe Ele-
mentary School to make it a suit-
able plant for educating area ele-
mentary age children.
The money will be spent for
additional classrooms, enlarged
classrooms, doing away with the
flat roof concept In favor of a hip
roof construction, air and heat fa-
cilites, and a complete renova-
tion of the building which was
built nearly 50 years ago as a
high school.
Students are presently meet-


ing in cold rooms in the winter
and hot rooms in the spring, fall
and summer. The rooms are in-
adequate in size and several
classes are meeting in temporary
rooms.
The School Board has opted
for the renovation over a new
school solution for several rea-
sons. One of the main reasons is
approximately $4 million. It
would cost approximately $4 mil-
lion more to build a new building.
Another reason for the renovation
is. the state will not allow an au-
ditorium nor a gymnasium to be

ng state funding to maintain.
The renovation plan allows


Mexico Beach Electors To Choose

Two Councilmen From Field of Five

Candidate For Mayor Disqualified To Seek Election


Mexico Beach will conduct its
election to select two council
members and a mayor/council
member on Tuesday, November
5, taking advantage of the attrac-
tion a general election has 'in or-
der to get its electors to the polls.
The Mexico Beach election
was not without its theatrics as
one candidate-stuart Charey-
was disqualifie only Friday for
failure to meet the length of resi-.
dence requirement to qualify as a
viable candidate.
it was ruled that Charney
wasn't .a bona-fide resident of
Mexico Beach for a full year be-
fore the end of qualification on.
October 14. Charney countered


that he and his family came to
Mexico Beach the day prior' to the
arrival. of Hurricane Opal, and
rented a room-at El Governor Mo-
tel. The storm, however, forced
him to leave again and he didn't
return in time to fulfill his resi-
dency requirement.
The Town Council met Friday
afternoon and considered Char-
ney's claim, only to rule against
his qualification. Mayor Garry
Gaddis, a candidate for re-
election as Mayor/Council Mem-
ber, didn't attend nor vote at the
special meeting.
OTHER CANDIDATES
Two other council members
to be selected next Tuesday are


from Groups II and *III.
Incumbent Mel Ashcraft will
be challenged by Charles [Chuck]
Messer for a two-year term in
Group II.
Group III will see a new face
after the Tuesday election. Ron
Johnson, who would be the in-
cumbent, is not seeking re-
election. -Instead a three-man
field of candidates is seeking the
position. They are Mike Norman,

LOCAL CONTESTS
Three strictly local races will

Will Vote "Yes" '


WE'RE GOING TO VOTE in favor of the proposed half cent
sales tax levy to support a bond issue to drastically renovate
Port St. Joe's Elementary School, if you didn't suspect already.
We'll make no bones about it nor excuses for our decision. We
simply believe the renovation is long past the point where the
work is needed and we believe the sales tax is the most equitable
and fair way to finance it.
The school board has convinced us that the entire revenue
resulting from the levy.will be spent for one purpose and one
purpose alone and that is the renovation of the present school
into a facility which will facilitate the learning process in a.com-
fortable and well-equipped environment for our children.
THE WORDS "OUR CHILDREN" Is used advisedly since we
will have a grandchild starting school in that building.in a short
four years and we would provide the best for her. We may have
other grandchildren entering the school at a later date and we
would like to feel at ease about the plant and the kind of product
it turns out. Any number of you readers could just as well have
written these few words, since a multitude of you have children
and grandchildren either already attending the school or nearing
the age when they will be students. Many of you have children
as yet unborn which you will expect to educate In that particular
facility. Don't you want a first-class environment for them?
That's the only reason we're voting in favor of the question.
We're not voting to build a monument to anyone's honor; we're
not voting to raise someone's salary here, nor pay someone for
doing meaningless work; we're not financing an athletic team,
nor paying for an experimental method of teaching. We're voting
to pay for the nuts and bolts; the very basics of providing a com-
fortable, well-equipped building to be used for the activity of
learning... period!
And when that is paid for, our vote is to include the abolish-
ment of that half cent tax!
IT DOESN'T BOTHER OUR decision one bit that the county
commission was reluctant to endorse the tax. Each of them is in
favor of it, on a personal basis, if what they say bears any
weight. They don't have to collectively endorse, the act to give
their independent approval. It would have shown a sense of una-
nimity if they had officially, as a board, unanimously and collec-
tively adopted the measure, but we see no great, dark secret in
the fact they were reluctant to do so.
After all, the operation of the two bodies are separate and
have no bearing on each other whatsoever.
IF YOU ALSO ARE concerned over the welfare of our chil-
dren, you will vote "yes" to this question too. It's much easier
and less distracting to learn in pleasant surroundings than it is
to learn in a makeshift or sub-standard environment such as we
have been requiring our elementary students to mold their fu-
ture in.




Better Late Than Never
IT'S BETTER LATE THAN NEVER we suspect. Here it is two
years ;since,'Florida..votedLo. ban .most .all kinds .of..fishlig nets..
and essentially deprive thousands of solid citizens of the where-
withal to earn a living, that Governor Lawton Chiles creates an
enterprise zone or zones designed to take up the slack.
We're not going to slam the movement by declaring it "too lit-
tie, too late" since nobody but the authors of the bill know what
all its benefits are .. if, indeed there ate any!
On paper, the measure sounds good, but the fine print
hasn't been digested as yet. It may cost more to get those tax ex-
emptions than we'll realize in benefits. Such things have hap-
pened before. The net buy-out scheme and the way. it flopped
serves to make us skeptical about the latest intent to help those
who need help.
WE SINCERELY HOPE that what we read of the enterprise
zone is only the tip of the iceberg as far as serving to benefit the
ones so drastically affected by the net ban. It would make us ex-
tremely happy that a government program was established to
help those who actually needed help became a reality rather
than just another political ploy.
: Like we say, we don't intend to overtly slam the enterprise
zone concept, but we at least think we have been given ample
cause to at least express scepticism, don't you?
So, until we learn more about this thing which has come to.

My Mother has never been
real big on Halloween. She
doesn't think it is scriptural. And
Mom is not one to change with,
or be influenced by, the times.
She's not into the one world hu-
manistic, look out for No. 1. the
whole universe is man-centered,
you only go around once;, let it
all hang out, it must'be "right"
'cause everyone is doing it, lais-


sez faire anything goes, life is
like a box of chocolates, gusto

your daddy takes the "T"-bird
away attitude that so permeates
our society today. She's not into
palm reading, fortune cookies,
zodiacs or Ouija boards. And you
can bet your life she's never had
a close encounter with a ghoul,
ghost, goblin or gotyoumacallit,
She didn't believe in witches
when I first remember "talking
Halloween" with her back in. the
early fifttes-and, as I 'have
pointed out, she hasn't budged
one lota in the ensuing years.
She'd only let us go "trick or


treat'in" qfter the lecture on the
unscriptural and unnatural state
of the holiday. That became her
world famous ANNUAL lecture
on the unscriptural....
I never will forget the first'
one-I was about five and I said,
"Hey, I, ain't going nowhere on,
the 31st!" '
Leon quickly pulled me aside,
and explained to me about the 3
Musketeers, and the Butterfin-
gers, and the Sugar Babies, and
the Necco Wafers.
'My eyes lit up in total amaze-
ment! "You mean they just drop
it in your sack and It don't cost


nothing? And the more houses
you go to, the more stuff you
get?"
This was too good to be true
I grabbed a F-R-M chicken
scratch feed sack from out of the
tack shed, poked a. couple of eye
holes in it and cut a trail for the
Brooks house Just down the
road.,
-Trick or treat!"
"Oh. hi Leon. Hi Kesley. Is
David not with ya'll?"
"No ma'am. Mother says he's
a little small," Leon answered
right up to Mrs. Brooks' ques-
tion. I was too Irightened to say
anything and besides I didn't
want to give away who we were. I
did hold out by paper pumpkin
bag-into which Mrs. Brooks
dropped a couple of Tootsie
Rolls.
Unbelievable!
We raided Vonell Webb next.
"Hi Leon. Hi Kesley."
We loaded up and moved on
down the street. "Lon, I don't
think. we're exactly fooling 'em
with our feed sack disguises."-
"No need to. We don't really
care if they know who it is. The
object is to get the candy."
"What if they won't give us
the candy. How do we trick 'em?"
He gave me the how can -
my little brother be so -
dumb look and condescended a
notch or two to answer, "We
don't have time to waste trick 'in
nobody, we're after'the candy."'
I'm not sure ty little brain
was understanding all that was
going on. "Leon, Is Mother right
about these witches and goblins
and ghosts?"
"I suspect she is. I've never
seen any haints or shades. I do
worry about that Jack-O'-
Lantern fellow. He couldn't get

Red Roe Season Is Making Me Salivate For The Taste Of Mullet


IT WILL SOON be, red roe
mullet time and for the second
season in a row we have no hopes
of enjoying this delicacy. It's fun-
ny how delicious they became the
minute we couldn't get any!
Last year, during the height
of the red roe season,'Johnny Lee
ran me down in the grocery store
and forced a mess of potentially
red roe mullet on me, but nobody
has done it since. I have "done
without" in silence; grinned and
borne it, so to speak.
: What was once common "pay
back" currency-a mess of fresh-
caught mullet still flouncing-has
since become a valued item.
Those who catch them don't have
any to waste giving them away. I
would be even glad to pay for a
fresh mess of the ingredient of
which a real, down-to-earth, fish
fry is made of.
Nobody pays off a favor by
giving a mess of mullet anymore.
The current political races have
lacked that "down home"' flavor
from the lack of fish fries. The


ETA OIN SHRDLU

barbecued chicken just won't'
serve as an acceptable substitute.
Somehow,;it just isn't the same. '
Another piece of familiar
Americana, gone!

IT WASN'T TOO long ago
that I could salve that mullet
hunger with a little ingenuity.
I would only have to conjure
up a reason to go visit Gene Raf-
field out at the fish house-and if
I took my camera along, why it
was even better!
I would plan the visit at
about two hours before quitting
time and show up to get a little
information, do a feature story, or


just pass the time of day. Almost
invariably, at about the time .I
was leaving, Gene would lean
back in his chair and ask, "Do-
you want a mess of fresh mullet,
for supper?"
Well, you guessed the answer
to that question. That was par-
tially the reason for my putting
off my visit until late in the week
and timed it so near to supper
time.
Gene would give me a gener-
ous number of mullet about 10,
inches long; my favorite size
And, best of all, he would
clean them!
I have 'kept ole Gene's largess


a deep dark secret all this time
for fear of his getting far more
"visits" than he could reasonably
handle. I knew I had a good thing
going, here. ands didn't want to
upset the apple cart; or.the mul-
.let net, so to speak.
Only now do I feel safe in re-
vealing my secret source of fresh
mullet, because Gene doesn't
have them any more!

GENE GAVE ME an excuse
to come visit some of the time. It
was at these times I had to take
my camera along.
You see, his boats had a hab-
it of 'catching 40;000 pounds,
50,000 pounds, even 60,000
pounds of the flouncing delicacies
at a time, and Gene had a desire
to record these catches on film. I
was more than happy, to, be-
cause, after I had taken all the
pictures Gene wanted came that
familiar phrase, 'Would you like
to have a nice mess of fresh mul-
let?"
That "nice mess of fresh mul-


let" would always ,be cleaned,
washed, scaled, and ready for the
frying pan.
I surely miss those days,
SYou see, I don't throw a cast
net.

I GUESS YOU could say I
was doing some subtle begging
with this week's column.. I know
there are' myriads of people out
there who throw cast nets. There
are almost as many who some-
times wind up catching more
than they can eatt
Now, let me tell you how a
mullet isn't supposed to be very
good after it has been frozen. It
loses some of its zap. It isn't the
same fish, although I would settle
for a frozen substitute right along
about now.
Why, I would even resort to
cleaning them myself I have been
known to do so, you know.
That fact alone demonstrates
my state of desperation, doesn't
it?


,, Usually, when you offer a
person a mess of surplus fish [it
seems that no species is as good
after it has been frozen] you usu-
ally are asked the question, "Have
they been cleaned?"

I'VE GOT FEELERS out, Just
in case any of my friends happen
to catch too many mullet, regard-
less of whether they are of the red
roe variety or not. So far I haven't
seen any fruit from all this "seed
sowing" activity.
This is also the time of the
year when a mullet is at his best
- taste-wise! He's ambrosia to
most mullet-lovers! He's the
choice of many serious discrimi-
nating fish eaters. A real "mullet
connoisseur" can even tell you,
from the taste alone, where he
was caught!
I don't suppose I'll ever get
that good, nor do I aspire to.
Right now, I would just settle for
the fact that he was caught .
and made available for my dinner
table!

A Wonderful Ride
Dear Citizens of Gulf County:
On Tuesday, you will be going
to the polls, to elect a' new
Superintendent of Schools. As
this day approaches. I am over-
whelmed with a sense of gratitude
for your allowing me the honor of
serving as your chief school offi-
cer for the past twenty years. I
truly treasure the experience, and
much of that is due to you, your
expectations, and your support of
our school system.
Gulf County has always been
unique among small school dis-
tricts lI,Northwest Florida in that
it ha,-provided facilities of which
we could be proud: small class
sizes, necessary dollars to''sup-
port our: programs, and strong
faculties; Wei have always been
responsive to change whenever
research Indicated that such
change was in the best interest of
our student population. :All of
these factors make me proud and
appreciative of the opportunity to
have been a part of this system.,
On November 5, you will be
asked to decide how we fund the
renovation of Port St. Joe
Elementary School. This school,
built in 1950 as a high school
facility,- is ,in desperate need of
repair. We can wait no longer to.
address this project. The half-cent
sales tax referendum on
Tuesday's ballot asks for your
approval to levy this half-cent tax
on non-essential items for twenty
years, or until the bonds are paid

of our place we rushed back to
the front porch to "divide" the
loot. I was little more confused
on what had been a rather con-
fusing night.
Leon, why-do we have'to di-
S vide it? -Why don't you take what
is -in your sack and I'll take what
'is,in mrie," .. .
'"Doesn't work* that way.
Here, pour all of our stuff out be-
tween us. I'll show you how to do
it ... .
He immediately begin to."di-
vide up" with the seemingly In-
herit juris prudence of an older
brother. He'd take the two Baby
Ruth's and give me a couple of
jawbreakers. He picked out EVE-
RY piece of .candy corn for his
pile and pushed the jelly beans
toward mine. He got all the Toot-
sie Rolls arid the Chick-O-Sticks,
I got an apple and one pack of
Beech-Nut chewing gum. .He
grabbed all four boxes of, Milk
Duds and graciously "let me
have" the stuck together licorice.
"Leon, this ain't fairly I'm go-
ing in the house and tell-"
Before I could get to iny feet
-he drop kicked me over two
straight back chairs, .across the
swing and up against an old
churn left on the porch since
granny .,got ,ut. of. the butter
business. "Yofu say one word and,.
Ill beat the living daylights out of'
youl We're 'going to go inside,
smile' at everyone and carry on
about what great fun we had.
Understand"
I knew in that instance that
Mother was right all along. If you
go after the treats . you'd
better be ready for the trick 'in .
Respectfully,
Kesley'


off, whichever happens first. The
alternative method would be to
raise property taxes, but your
School Board and Superintendent
feel that the half-cent sales tax
levy is the more equitable way to
finance this project.
In Gulf County, we've always
done the right thing where our,
schools are concerned. I am con-


25


fident that wewill once again do
the right thing, and in this case
the right thing, s saying YES to
the half-cent sales tax.
Again. I say thank you. I am
sincerely grateful for these twenty
years. It's been a wonderful ride'

Shark Pride Exists In Louisiana


An Open Letter To Mrs. Charlotte
Pierce and The Star:
Since I graduated from high
school ten years ago I have often
,commented on the. Impact ,that
Port St. Joe High School had on
my educational growth and devel-
opment. Mrs. Virginia Harrison's
humanities class and several
other classes helped prepare me
for the real world.
When I found out that you
(Mrs. Pierce) and the homecoming
committee had indeed extended
an invitation for "Our" return to
participate in the homecoming
festivities, I felt elated to say the
least. And-even up to Just two
weeks ago, I still planned to be
with all of you in Port St Joe for
"Homecoming".


I have accepted a challenge
that keeps me from attending the


homecoming events. The chal-
lenge is a new job, assumingthe -
role of manager of a...WVal;Mart- .,''
store in Louisiana that takes me ".'
further away than I am accus-
tomed to.
The privilege to have attended
Port St, Joe High and serve as
Student Council President, play
in the band, play football, etc.,
will always be a reminder to me of
the good things instilled in me by
my parents, my church, and my
teachers. You can believe that
Shark Pride will stand tall in
Louisianal
Cordially,
/s/ Carl White, Jr.

Wilda Huffman, a resident at Bay
St. Joseph Care Center has
proven this beyond a doubt.
Unable to complete her edu-

always been a dream fo*r her to
one day go back to school. This
dream did not diminish even after
entering the nursing home, where
she has resided for the past 13
years.
Thanks to a dedicated staff at
the center and a very willing and
dedicated teacher at the adult

three days a week.
Martha Sanborn, Gulf County

STucker Gives Rotary


Tips On Av
Mike Tucker was the program
speaker at the most recent Rotary
Club meeting. He spent his 20
minutes informing Rotarians-
authoritatively-which records
they could safely dispose of and
which ones they should keep.
"Theie's four distinct records
every person should keep for
sure," he said. He listed these as:
An up-dated will;
A power of attorney;
S* A health care power of at-
torney along with a living will;
A list of your insurance poli-
cies. property owned, stocks and
'bonds. titles to all properties
owned, savings and other bank
accounts.
'Your survivors will need
these if you should die," the
speaker said.
.On the other-hand, Tucker
said you can feel reasonably safe

voiding Tax


in throwing away all records kept
to verify your tax returns if they
are at least three years old. You
can safely throw away all records
six years of age and older, unless
you are a pack rat and just like
saving "things".
"If your tax returns were com-
piled with the intention to de-
fraud, records can be required of
you to substantiate them in per-
petuity," he said. 'You can't hide
from an inaccurate tax return,"
he said.
He gave some hints at avoid-
ing taxes, legitimately, such as:
Don't send out the. final
month's bills until after the fiscal
year, if you own a business. 'You
don't have to pay taxes on the
amount in the current year, if
you don't. Be sure to pay all your
bills prior to the end of the fiscal
year," he said.
Pay for any extra supplies
you may need.
Do any repairs to your busi-
ness premises, and pay for them
in the current year.
*Buy any new equipment be-
fore the year ends.
Pay your children. for any
tasks they perform. You can pay
them up to $4.000 per year, plus
pay for a $2.000 IRA account for
them and pay no taxes if they are
under 18 years of age.
Tucker gave a number of
record-keeping hints that will
save paying taxes, in his talk.

PAGE 10A THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY, OCT. 31, 1996








Dear Gulf County Citizens,
On November 5, you will be making a decision which will affect the next four years of your life, your family's life, your friend's
lives, and the future of Gulf County. Most of you have already shown that you believe in what's going on at the Gulf County Sheriff's office. Contrary to some
beliefs, the Gulf Count Sheriffs Office is being run in a very professional and efficient manner. We are even being recognized by other law enforcement agencies as being one
of the most efficient departments in our area. This is something that I am very proud of. When other law enforcement agencies recognize thatyou are doing a good job, then
you undoubtedly are.doing something right.
There have been so many rumors and other political. gossip going on for the past six months concerning myself and the sheriff's office.


For the record I would like to address that.
First of all, I have never done anything in my entire career to bring embarrassment on myself
or any law enforcement agency that I have worked for. Prior to being appointed to the Gulf
County Sheriffs office I had one of the most thorough and in-depth background investigations
conducted on me that could possibly be done on any law enforcement officer, by the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement.
Do you think for ne moment I would have been appointed to this position if I had ever been
involved in anything that would cast doubt on my integrity and morals?
Below is an excerpt from the background investigation by FDLE.
"During McKeithen's career with the BCSO, he advanced to the rank of Captain in-charge of the
Investigations Division and attended 18 specialized police training courses. McKeithen also received
9 awards which include the Florida State Police Officer of the Year, Jaycee's Outstanding officer of
the Tear, and Officer of the Year by the Gulf County Sheriffs Department. He has also received
approximately 40 letters of commendation and appreciation, and in one of these commendations
McKeithen waspraised for saving a person from a burning car which exploded after McKeithen
removed the person from the car. No derogatory documentation could be found in the personnel
file ofMcKeithen."
During my career I have stepped on many toes. Many of them were drug dealers who
thought they were above the law. As a result of that, several attempts have been made by
these same criminals to end my career in law enforcement, or to tarnish it.
So far all has failed. I am still here and Iplan to continue to do everything in my power to
remove the drug dealers and other criminals from our streets.
Please don't be misled by desperate last minutepolitics. I never have and I never wil be
influenced by anyone "outside or inside". I will work hard to make each and everyone of
you proud of your sheriffs department.
Together we will continue to be number one.
Thank you Gulf County. .

Your Sheriff .

TO THE CITIZENS OF MEXICO BEACH, FLORIDA
In just a few days, you, the voters, will be choosing two council
members whose leadership will affect the future course of OUR
City.
As a private citizen and home owner, I am seeking to represent
you as a councilman. I have no ties to any local business and do
not represent any one group of people, political or otherwise. I
believe that government should serve all voters as customers,
rather than acting as an exclusive group.
I am interested in this city remaining as a small community
where growth is held to a minimum, and a local government that
listens to its citizens-not just lip service with a smile.

MAKE YOUR


VOTE :C0 UNT

Dear Citizens' of Mexico. Beach:
If you are interested in what is going on with your government, and the things
that will affect the quality of living in your community, then you need to carefully
look at the candidates and make your vote count this Nov. 5th.' Many of you'
know that I supported the sewer project, the water project, and other common
sense infrastructure improvements that benefit our community. I do not believe
that un-incorporation is the way to go! (That idea was born out of the frustration ,
of people who feel they do not get fair treatment at city hall.)

Like you, I feel that a common sense approach to decision making is what
most voters want in their elected officials. You and I want council members who
will listen to us, let us express our views, weigh all the options and ask questions.
Only then can we have fair and honest government for all the people of our city.

I am a homeowner, married, Army veteran and businessman who fell in love,
with this area back in the early 70's. Most of us came here to retire, or we love to
fish and enjoy the beach without all the crowds and parking problems that our big
city neighbors have. All of us want to keep it that way! We have a lot of honest,
hard working city employees (most of whom are poorly paid) who keep our city's
standards high, clean, and protect us while we sleep. None us want our city to be-
come ai"paradise lost". That's why I ask for your support on Nov. 5th. If you
desire to have a voice in city government, a fair and open-minded representative,,
who stands for equality for all, then vote for:

Fixed Bridge


Vy Advantages


One of the Very best ways
to replace a missing tooth, or
teeth, is through the use of a
fixed bridge. This is attached
to two or more adjacent teeth
by use of abutment crowns.
Gold, coated with porcelain,
is normally the material used
to construct the crown. The
same materials are used to
replace the missing tooth or
teeth. -
The fixed bridge has
many advantages. Since it
remains permanently in the
mouth, it cannot be dropped,
lost-or stolen. It can be
cleaned in the same way as
natural teeth. It adds no extra.


bulk to the mouth and does
not interfere with speech. It is
very unlikely to cause irrita-
tion to the gum or jawbones. It
is aesthetically pleasing and
can often last a lifetime.
Unfortunately, a fixed
bridge may not be for every-
one in every situation. Your
dentist can give advice on the
feasibility and the desirability
of a fixed bridge only after a
careful examination.

TheT .Lst Of


'The Pioneers ...


My Uncle, Luther Byrd, was
in many ways, the perfect man.
'He was what I would consider to
be, one of the last of the pioneers.
SLuther was 3/4 Shawnee and
1/4 Irish. His upbringing was
heavily Influenced by both the
Siawnees he. grew up with in the
midwest,: and the Irish contingent
on his Father's,.side. He was born
iri 1936, in the "dust bowl days,.in'
Cklahoma. 'His father, -mother,
arid many 'of their fellow "Oakies"
had trekked to California to
escape this seemingly relentless
environmental plague. Luther was
too young for either W.W.II or
Korea, and too old'for Vietnam.
He always lamented being unable
to fight in dne of these conflicts
for a country he greatly loved.
a As:a yoting adult he went on
a warrior'ss Journey' which: took
him to all parts of this great coun-
try, and eventually to Mulberry.
By this time he'd decided he
wanted to be a dentist, and was
saving money towards that ambi-
tion by hiring himself out to vari-
ous traveling construction crews..
One of these crews was working
in Mulberry, and he ,had been
given the position of foreman, so
greatly was he respected by his
co-workers. This was how he met
my Mama's middle sister, Tully.
In 1958, Luther was an 'older'
man, already into his early twen-
ties, when he came around to
court my then'. 16 year old aunt.
Such things were not unheard of,
but at least in my family, it was
something that, if you had to do
it, you did it with the equivalent of
constant surveillance on the part
of one of the male family members
to maintain their female relatives'
honor and purity. Mostly, my late
grandfather Amos Paul Vernon
was the watch dog. Sometimes
Clevus, my oldest uncle would
relieve him. Luther accepted this
as right and proper, and my fami-
ly had to admit, that even for
someone who looked like he might
do a war dance at any minute, he
was allright..
Luther had a master plan,
however. He didn't Just court
Tully, He courted the whole fami-
ly He took Grandpa Amos Paul
and Clevus on hunting trips that
lasted three or four days, with no
supplies. He taught them how to
live completely off the land. He
taught them Shawnee.iskills of
hunting, tracking, and survivingn g
that made them downright admir-
ing of my aunt's suitor. He taught
them which root cured upset
stomach, and which one gave it.
He taught them how to, through
meditation and a super neat poul-
tice, hold down swelling from a
snake bite till the county's one
doctor could rush in to take a
look..
Then, with equal vigor, helped
Clevus build a garage onto his
new home, to sweeten his suit for
the erstwhile Eleanor Grace, who,
at the time, was playing :hard to
get'. Eleanor saw the place, and .:
immediately, pledged her troth-
with Uncle Clevus. This put him
in solid with Clevus, and It made
Luther the only one in the family
he never played any of his dirty
tricks on. The family told Tully:
that if she didn't marry Luther,.
they would. Of course, Tully need-
ed no such coercion. She knew a
prince when saw one, and mar-
ried himi on the eve of her 17th-
birthday.
Now, I've often expressed the
belief that, if civilization ,ever
comes to a screeching halt, you
will know who the real men are,
say, within a weel. That belief is
mostly due to watching Uncle
Luther live his life. He was a real
man, in the finest :sense of the
word. He was a man Who enjoyed
all the fruits of civilization, but
would not become a nail-biting,
whimpering mess if he. didn't have
them.
Luther,was a big picture kind
of guy, even tempered, who used
his intellect and the supreme self
control the Shawnees gave him.
When a problem arose in his life,
he didn't beat his wife, get drunk.
run around, or do any of the other .
things some of the men "in, his
construction crew did when
things got rough. He would go off
into the woods, and reappear,
calm and collected, with a plan of
action. This too, I suppose came
from his Shawnee background,
but it'seemed infinitely preferable
to the'ways I grew up seeing other
men handling their problems.
Yet, if he had too, Luther
stood. ready to defend what he
loved.; I already mentioned his
disappointment in not being able
to serve during wartime for his
country, and he sneered at any-
one who called themselves a vet-
eran who didn't actually dodge
bullets or shrapnel. This loyalty
was just as strong when it came
to his wife. Tully loved Luther so


deeply, it never occurred to her to
make him jealous. And it was
probably impossible, anyway,
given the extent of his character.
But Tully was the beauty of the
family with her softly curling red
hair, and lovely green eyes. And a


local rascal decided that he was-
n't going to take 'no for an answer'
soon after Tully was married to
Luther.
What Luther finally did, after
talking didn't work, was teach
this varmint an extended lesson
inwhy it took the cavalry so long
to win the Indian wars. Needless
to say, the fellow limped away
from the conflict determined to
put a wide space between himself
and Tully. In fact, I think I heard
he moved out to Arizona, some-
where. But that was his own
choice. My uncle just helped him
put his priorities in order.
Luther never laid an angry
finger on my aunt Women were
sacred, he kept telling us, even
the ornery ones like my Aunt
Eleanor Grace. And as much as
she hated to admit it, Uncle
Luther finally won even Eleanor
Grace over. She would call him
"That durned-crazy-half-breed
injun," but from her, given the
tone she used, it was considered


SLaura at La



by all, including Luther, as an Sha
endearment. mil
The first six years of their hair
married life was spent away for and
the most part, as Luther was: can
putting himself through college at the
the University of Alabama, some- te
thing that we could hardly hold of
against him, since at the time.
Auburn didn't have a dentistry' bull
program. They moved back in, and
1964 to Mulberry, and bought the, whe
aging, ailing town dentist's prac- fnli
twice. Tully went to work at the mai
chicken plant, because she liked
to work. and she missed Luther
during the day. And Luther, with-
in a year, built a fine reputation
as a mostly 'ouchless' dentist who
really went the extra mile.
They produced their only,
child-Suzanna, in April 1965, 7
weeks before I made my appear-
ance into the world. 'Zanna, as I
called her, was to be my childhood... -
best friend as well as my first
cousin. She was the perfect mix of
the lovely Tully, and Luther, her

SThe Awesome Power of Just One Vote

Examples of How Just One Vote Had a Lasting Impact on the Making of History


By Jack Faris, President of the
National Federation of Indepen-
dent Business, representing over
600,000 small-business men and
women. c
Recently, a small-business
owner mailed me a list showing
how just one vote can have an
impact on history.
According to the list, "In
1645, one vote gave Oliver
Cromwell control of England; in
1649, one vote caused Charles I of
England to be executed; in 1776,
one vote gave America the English
language instead of German; in
S1845, one vote brought Texas into
the Union; in 1865, one vote
saved President Andrew Jackson
from impeachment; in 1876, one
vote' changed France from a
monarchy to a republic; and in
1923, one vote gave Adolph Hitler
leadership of the Nazi Party."
You don't need to think back
that far to recall other "one vote"
events that had an impact on his-
tory and on small-business own-
ers. For instance in 1993, the


largest tax increase In the
nation's history passed the U.S.
Senate by one vote. And in 1995,
an historic vote to pass a bal-
anced budget amendment to the
U.S. Constitution fell just one
vote short of passage in the U.S.
Senate.
Small-business owners are
among the few individuals I have
discovered who easily accept the
principle that one individual or
action can make a significant dif-
ference. That's because entrepre-
neurs have often witnessed first-
hand that lone actions by individ-
uals can set a course toward suc-
cess or failure; that conviction
and dedication of one person act-
ing alone can overcome tremen-
dous challenges."
In this fall's elections, the-
actions of individual small-busi-
ness owners will be especially
important Many legislative con-
tests will be decided by very slim,
margins, many by less than one
percent, some perhaps by very
few votes. The control of state leg-
islatures and even the House and


Senate could be determined by
voter shifts of one or two percent-
age points.
As a group, small-business
owners can make a difference in
the outcome of many races this
fall. But even as a lone, individual
participant, one person can have
an impact bn,the outcome of polit-
ical races. One small employer or
one employee volunteering his or
her time and expertise in the cam-
paign of another small-business
owner running for office could be
the key to that candidate's suc-"
cess.
At the same time, candidates
must realize the importance of
small-business support. A recent
survey found that almost two
thirds (64 percent) of voters say
they would be more likely to vote
for a candidate who is supported
by "small-business owners and,
the National Federation of
Independent Business." The sur-


vey also revealed that almost 9
out of 10 voters have a favorable
opinion of small-business owners.
Small business as a voting
bloc is an enormous resource that
has gone largely untapped. The
candidates who bring small-busi-
ness owners into the fold by
addressing their issues will win
the support of a valuable and
powerful group of voters. In turn,
small employers, by uniting and
exercising their collective voting
power, have the opportunity to
sway elections in their favor by
voting into office the people who
share their views.
The clear message to small-
business owners is: Get Involved
in supporting the candidates you
think best represent your views.
As history has shown, each one of
us-by choosing to be involved or
choosing to sit out an election-
can be the single most important
reason for its outcome.

later California, his Shawnee rela-
tives. had put him through some
rigorous initiation experiences
that made him feel that his man-
hood was a permanent attain-
ment. They also gave him a belief
that a man improved as he aged.
It was not youth arid its foolish-
ness that. one ought to seek, in
Luther's opinion, but old age; wis-
dom and tribal respect
Luthern was, in conclusion, a
man comfortable in his own skin.
He didn't act'womanish to appeal
to the silly type of women who like
to 'run' such 'sensitive' types. But
he didn't act llke what Aunt CGnny
termed as a 'turkey boor', either- -
swaggering, blustering, abusive,

Hello GulfCounty!

The response to my letter last week was wonderful. I did make a mistake
though because I did not include our license number. It is very impor-
tant to know that you are hiring a licensed contractor and that they carry
the proper insurance. I was talking to Cathy at my insurance company
and she said that if you hire someone that does not have insurance to
work on your house and one of their workers is injured on your property
you become liable. So if you hire someone and they ask you to pull the
permit, that could be an indication that they are not insured or not
licensed. Also, if they ask to be paid before they start the job that could
'be a sign that they are not licensed. Just make sure you ask for proof of
'insurance and to see a license. There are a lot of good contractors but
;there are also, some bad ones.
,A problem I have heard about lately is that some contractors are not
properly disposing of the old materials off of the jobs they are doing.
Please ask your contractor to dispose of the trash from your job properly
at the dump. A contractor from out-of-county has to pay for a dump
'card and he may not want the added expense. Dumping debris from jobs
in the woods is against the law, so make your contractor do what is right
and use the dump. It will probably save him money especially if he gets
'caught.
With the holidays right around the corner you may want to spruce up
your house for all the company you have coming. If you want a new roof
Sor want to give your house a new coat of paint please give us a call. We
are properly insured and we will be glad to show you proof of insurance.
We also have references and remember, we accept most major credit
cards.
Well, Taft, Whitney, Travis, Raegan, and I are feeling more at home every
day. We made the rounds to the various Fall Festivals this past weekend
and Whitney and I went to Judgment House. If you missed that you
missed a powerful message. Make plans to go next year.
I am looking forward to participating in the "Trick or Treat on Reid
Ave." this Thursday. Donna and Iwill be there.so stop and say hello. I
would appreciate it if you see Taft with our three children and he looks a
little confused or agitated give him a little nudge or word of encourage-
ment. Our children have a tendency to give Daddy a hard time when I'm
not around.
-Well, thank you for reading this letter. I hope you enjoyed reading it as
much I did writing it. I am looking forward to meeting you. If you have
.a good recipe for dressing I sure would like a copy. I'm not very good at
advertising but I hope to ge a good neighbor and an asset to the com--
munity. Be sure to attend church somewhere this Sunday.

available are used as part of the

mately $190,000 is available.
Estimates for the complete

with bonds, and a substantial
Increase in ad valorem taxes
(property taxes) could be the
alternative to the 1/2* sales tax.
Many of our people shop in,
Panama City, paying sales taxes,
that do not benefit Gulf County at
all. The only time you would pay
. this 1/2 sales tax would be on
items normally taxed in our coun-
ty.
Plus, we will be helped by vis-
itors, vacationers, and those just,

paying the 1/20 tax on their pur-

finance these bonds. When paid
off, the 1/2t sales tax will end. '

people generally do not spend much time think-

our thoughts begin to question where we will
spend eternity. As mortals we know our time as

plant. It matures into a small tree
or shrub, depending on how you
Raise it.. It can be grown anywhere
in our state. Wax myrtle produces
attractive flowers and fruit. Its
foliage has a unique fragrance.
We'll describe some of this popu-
lar plant's uses and characteris-
tics, and offer some Information
on how it can be grown as an
attractive specimen..


If Being a native plant, wax
myrtle Is well-suited to Florida's
soil and climate. You often see
this plant growing wild, .along,
S highways and In uncultivated
areas. Wax myrtle does well In a
moist environment. So, it would
S be an excellent choice if you have
I a drainage problem In your land-
c scape. However, It also grows very
well In drier soils.; .
Wax myrtle also is cold hardy,
salt tolerant, and relatively free of
S7 p.m insect and disease problems. My
Information on this desirable
native Floridian was provided by
Extension Urban Horticulture
Specialist, Dr. Robert Black, of
the University of Florida's
institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.
Wax myrtle s uniseiual,
which means that male and
female flowers are produced on


1.


5776


separate plants. Female flowers
grow in close bunches and pro-;
duce fruit that are round, light
green and about an eighth of an
inch in diameter. The fruit is coat-
ed with a thick, bluish wax that
may be used In making candles. AI
northern relative of the wax myr-
tle is the bayberry tree, which
produces larger berries, used
extensively in making fragrant
bayberry candles.
Wax myrtles may reach a
height of 25 feet. Their leaves are
evergreen, narrow at the base and
b5adero, toward the upper end.
AbpoullidWayy. up the leaf, coarse
teeth appear,on the edges.,
Wax myrtles produce suck-
ers, which are small plants that
sprout from the roots. These
suckers grow in clumps or clus-
ters, and if undisturbed, they will
eventually form very large dense
plants. However, if you remove
. these suckers from 'the main'
trunk, attractive, small trees can,
be produced.
Wax myrtles can be grown
from seeds, cuttings, and by sim-,
pie layering. You should sow
seeds as soon as they mature.
The seeds can be started In a mix-,
ture of equal parts of sand and
peat moss.
