Several residents of
Wewahitchka attended Tuesday
evening's regularly scheduled
county commission meeting and
issued their concerns about the
Wewa ambulance system and
desires to have an A.L.S.
(Advanced Life Support) system
servicing the area.
Wewa's ambulance system is
currently manned by a handful of
volunteers and has been recog-
nized as one of the finest squads
around for years.
But, as Elaine Adkinson told
the board, there have been some
problems. Adkinson specifically
pointed to a recent accident
involving a youngster who was
critically injured who had to wait
45 minutes for an ambulance to
arrive while the ambulance build-
ing was only three blocks away.
Ambulance squad chief
Charles Cleckley told the board
that they were aware that there
were occasionally some problems
with response time and that they
were working to eliminate them.
But, he responded, in the case of
the accident victim mentioned.
ambulance records reflected the
response time to be more like 30
Cleckley stated that the on-
call E.M.T. responding to the call
got hung up in road construction
while th9 ambulance driver was
waiting in the ambulance for his
arrival at the station. (According
to state law, the ambulance can't
roll unless both are in the vehi-
cle). However, there were E.M.T.'s
on the scene during much of the

Diredtoi-Shaiie 1McGu'ffiri told
those present that the problem
was being worked upon and that
every effort was being made to
improve the service.
Adkinson further questioned
the board as to how long it might
be before Wewa would have an
A.L.S. system similar to what is
currently available in the south
end of the county.
Commissioner Warren Yeager
suggested the board name a com-
mittee comprised of McGuffln,
Chief Administrator Don Butler.

appointed by Board Chairman

Question Road Paving
Several residents along Bailey
Road approached the board won-
dering why their road was deleted
from the road paving program
while other (seemingly less
deserving roads) were paved.
District 2 Commissioner
Jessie Armstrong told those pre-
sent that the road was deleted in
order to pave Highway 22A. He
said the road was on a school bus
route and had a higher priority on
the paving list than Bailey Road.
Resident Joe Hammock told
the board that there were six
houses along Bailey Road and he
knew of several roads that have
been paved in the area with fewer
homes on them.
Board members clarified the
board policy for the group

A Wide Net
PRESIDENT CLINTON'S CABINET members are deserting
his administration like a bunch of rats getting off a sinking ship.
At'last count there were six pulling the disappearing act, includ-
ing controversial -Energy Secretary, Hazel O'Leary. She must
have run out of someplace to go,
The papers quoted Clinton as saying he was.going to "cast a
wide net" in search of a new set of cabinet members. He might
-even snag a Republican or two in the-process; who knows!
Some prospective cabinet members are trying to write their
own set' of rules: under which they will potentially operate.
Sounds like they don't want. to get involved in Clinton's prob-
lems, should they come to work for him.
THE CATCH PHRASE ABOUT casting a wide net to search:
for replacements was an unfortunate metaphor to use in Florida
newspapers on the same day it was announced the Governori
had agreed with the Florida Marine Fisheries Commission to
outlaw the use of tarpaulin extensions on fishing nets to prevent
the catching of roe mullet. Clinton-and Florida's fishermen--
don't have a chance to get necessary jobs done, given the new
Governor Chiles asked the FMC. when they pushed him to
approve the emergency order banning the net extensions, "Is
there some pressing emergency?" In other words, 'What's the
CLINTON HAS SORT of a deadline in selecting a new cabi-
net. After all, the government must continue to operate. To do so
takes people on the job. The President could be In a bind by
now, what with the gaping holes in his Cabinet.
It's a lead-pipe cinch the fishermen are in a pickle now. They
have been in one for nearly two years now. The FMC has effec-
tively launched a crusade to put them out of business, all for the
salvation of a species they consider trash fish. This so-called
,"trash fish" is a delicacy to some and is rebounding tremendous-
ly to their former numbers.
If the President can get by the FMC with his "casting a wide
net" in search of some new cabinet members, perhaps the com-
mercial fishermen can elicit a little advice from him about how
he got away with using even larger nets than usual. He didn't
even have to resort to using tarpaulins to extend his search!
A DREAM OF GREAT proportions has finally been realized
in Gulf County. A new senior citizens headquarters has been a
project of the county for a couple of years, now, and finally is
: ,coming to fruition this week. The organization is moving into its
new headquarters, located to the east of the Gulf County Court-
house. The general public will be invited to come by and inspect
the new building in the near future and see what the citizens of
the county have wrought.
This has been a neighborhood project from the start. The
late Stiles Brown conceived the idea, got It kicked off. and the
energetic Jerry Stokoe has worked like a whirling:dervish for the
ist two or three years to raise the money:to get,the center bul4,
Jerry has done everything from making and selling sand-
wiches, conducting pageants, seafood festivals, selling bricks,
siding, shingles, rafters, timbers, memberships; you name it,
he's sold it!
JERRYS PACE WOULD HAVE put a lesser man in the hos-
pital over the period of time the center has been a'building. But
Jerry just started his day a little earlier and extended it just a
tad later than a normal work day for at least three years, in or-
der to'have the time to get the construction, and the persuading
job, done. At times he has even been considered a pest,,what
with his one-track mind-set of getting the center built, and
scrounging up the necessary materials and money to do it with.
There's no doubt about it; Jerry, at times, has been a pest!!! But
GULF COUNTY NOW HAS a fine institution for the senior
citizens to call their own. And, they'll share their facilities, too.
Nobody deserves a center to call their own any more than the
seniors. They have worked hard all their lives and deserve a
place for a little fun and relaxation.
Don't think Jerry or his seniors are going to sit back and
take it easy from here on in. You can bet they will continue thei-
multitude of projects to make money in order to pay the expens-
es of operating their new center. They're good about paying their
own way, rather than depending on someone else to do it.
Thanks, Jerry. You did a great Job!

as Democratic territory. It's been
I think the last Democratic
presidential candidate I voted for
was Adlal Stevenson; you know,
the candidate with the hole in his
shoe. That's been a long time ago.
I even helped Florida's first
Republican governor since recon-
struction get elected back in the
'60's. Claude Kirk was his name.
I tried just as hard to keep him
from getting elected again on his
second try at the top seat in Tal-
Gulf County is changing, too.
There:were a lot of contests which
had Republican opposition; more
so than in the past. Why; we even
had a Republican first primary!
We'd never had that happen be-
fore! Stiles Brown, the late "Mr.
Republican" here in Gulf County,
must have turned over in his
grave tat' this turn of events and
tried to rise up from the grave to
get in on the campaigning.
SWe used to wonder at Stiles
being so gung-ho over the Repub-
lican chances here in the county,
since their number could be
counted in the low hundreds in
Gulf County. Only recently have
'their numbers swelled to more
than a thousand, which it did
SEVERAL COUNTY races
were made more Interesting with
a choice of party. The entire gen-
eral election process was made
more adventuresome with a
choice of candidates for the local
races.. It gave us a reason to go
the polls in November other than
just to elect a president.
That should be reason
enough, but apparently we don't
use good reasoning when it
comes to electing presidents.
I saw conjecture in the daily
press that President Clinton
might not even get to finish his
second term in office, because of
all his problems, as early as
Thursday morning. If his prob-
lems are that serious, then how
can the American people justify
To put It bluntly. the Presi-
dent has his work cut out for him
here in his second term. I didn't
vote for him. but I wish him well.
We have had enough turmoil
from the presidential ofce to do

I WAS ALSO glid to see the
school's half cent sales tax to be
levied as a source of financing for
renovation of the Port St. Joe Ele-
mentary School pass so handily.
Its passage, so easily, gives
lie to the claim that Gulf County
isn't interested in its schools. We
are interested. We're just not all

SSome. of the teacher unions

money was going to be used for.

High School Students Honor
Nation's Veterans In
Once again, it's time to
remember and honor those who
fought and died honorably to pre-
serve the freedom of this great
country. But also, we should
Honor all of the veterans who
' served during peacetime, and
those in the future who could be
asked to do the same.
A special veterans day pio-
:gram was held at Port St. Joe
High School to honor all Gulf
County veterans. All veterans
killed in action were honored with
the sounding of the bell.
Lieutenant Colonel Mike
Weston of the United States Air
"Force, a 1967 graduate of Port St.
Joe High School, was the guest
speaker. Lt. Col. Weston
addressed three issues that are
important to success in the milli-
tary, as well as in life: integrity,
excellence and "service before
.self'. : :
He stressed that in all areas.of
our lives we should strive for
integrity and achieve excellence in
all that we do.'We should not set-
tle for mediocrity, but-strive to
excel in whatever endeavor under-
taken. One of the most critical
areas of one's life should, accord-
ing to Weston, be "service before
sell. Rather than thinking first
and foremost of what is best for
ourselves each time, one should
provide service to others primari-
ly, and to oneself, secondly.
S One of the most poignant
aspects of the program was the
recognition of veterans killed in
action, with the sounding of the
bell, followed by the playing of
"Taps" by Mitch Bouington.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, NOV. 14, 1996
When I was a little girl, there
was a very strict standard of eti-
quette in our small town. There
were always certain things you
said to your departing visitor, no
matter how eager you were for
them to hit the happy trail. Now,
these were never meant to be
taken seriously, and the only peo-
ple who seemed to take it serious-
ly were the very people whom you
wished would not
Now, I remember when
Georgia Grace came to visit,
bringing her 500 pound frame,
and her 85 pound long-suffering
husband Hank, it was the' only
time that etiquette was breached
at our house. With her, we'd usu-
ally act like we weren't home,
even if we had been five minutes
I learned early to get into the
act. When theircar pulled into the
drive, you'd see my father tearing
through the back field, as if there
was a twister after him. He was a
thin man, so thin as a matter a
fact, that If he ran quickly enough
he was practically invisible. So, it
was very rare that Georgia Grace'
ever saw him. Her line of vision
was focused on our front door.
and how she was gpnna get in.
So father, like Paul Revere
before him, would sound the
alarm to let everyone know that
:she'was coming. Somehow, it
never seemed to penetrate ,my
family's mind that Georgia Grace
probably heard him yelling this
alarm. It would have been hard
not to. But this was one place
where the family went firmly into
denial and stayed there.
Moments later, our civil
defense plan for Georgia Grace
went Into effect. We actually had a
"Georgia Grace" drill. Daddy
would come running in the back
door hollering. "GEORGIA
GRACE! I. I The whole family
would drop down silently into a
push-up position, crawl across
the floor to the room with no win-'
dows, and hide under the bed.
There were only three of us at the
time, so we could do that.
And, we'd lay there in that
dark room, under that bed, and
we'd listen. And we wouldn't
speak. And we wouldn't whisper.
Because even though Daddy had
just yelled Georgia Grace's name
at the top of his lungs, it was
assumed that this was the last
.sound that couldn't be heard by
her. After that, if one of us even
'breathed or wheezed she could
hear it. And not only would she
hear it; but she would know we
were in there.
Now what would happen if
Georgia Grace found out we were
in there? Would she eat the door?
SHave no way of knowing. We did-
Sn't practice that part in our civil
'defense drill. We were just In hor-
rors of her getting in our front
door. We knew that if that woman
got in oir front door it was going
to take the Jaws of life and a whole
lot of Vaseline to get her out. Our
'door frame just wasn't built to
take on the likes of Georgia Grace.
Now, every once in a while
our well-practiced plan would fail.
"Papa would sound the warning,
we'd all get under the bed and try
Sto stop breathing for as long as we.
could, but then something would
:go wrong. Georgia Grace seemed
to know when something was up.
.She'd knock at the front door for
about 90 minutes; then 'she'd try
the window next to the door, then
she'd go window by window, then
start over again at the door.
Sometimes she was there for
See, we'd covered every part
of disaster survival. We even had
canned food under that bed, and
a first aid kit. But we hadn't
counted on nerve survival. You
can only have three people under
a bed for so long without some-
body's patience giving way. Either
I'd get swatted, or Daddy'd aggra-
vate Mama, or vice versa, and
something would happen that
would 'give away' our position.
Then, it was time to give up the
farce and start to entertain.
Now these visits seemed to
last through whole developmental
stages of my life-but finally, they
would seem to be about to end.
They usually followed the same
pattern. Georgia Grace would
havejust eaten the last high calo-
rie item in our house. She'd stand
up, with the aid of towing devices
and a couple of electric power
tools, brush off the crumbs onto
the floor (covering the dog in the
process), and say, "Well, I'magine
jLaura at Large .. hRogr
by Laura Rogers
we gotta go."
Automatically, out my
Mama's well-bred Southern
mouth would come the words,
"What's your hurry? Stay with
us!" By the time she realized in
horror what she had said, it was
too late. Georgia Grace was lower-
ing herself onto the couch again.
Another hour would pass. The
tension would be terrible. Daddy
would keep giving Mama these
awful looks. You could almost
read his thoughts. Something
along the lines of being about
marrying a polite Southern
woman who didn't know when:to
leave well enough alone.
Then, Georgia Grace would
anchor herself to Hank and heave
up 'to a standing position. Again,
she'd say, "Magine, we gotta go.";
Mama's mouth would again
automatically pop open. But
Daddy, feigning a husbandly
caress, would pop his hand
across her lips-not hurting her
you understand, but firmly pre-
venting any sound from coming
out. And then, Georgia Grace
would be gone, her shadow tem-
porarily blocking out the sun.
Now, in my adulthood, the
words, "What's your hurry? Stay.
with us!" have never once come
out of my mouth. I think my
childhood taught me clearly the
traumatic effects of asking a
guest you clearly do not want- to
stay, to stay.
I have learned one thing from
my stoic Northern father and my
sweet mouthed Southern mother.
Always say what you wish you
meant-but while saying these
things, be sure to only say what
you're willing to, if you have to,
back up with action.
Gulf's Beef Producers
Proactive In Education
In this era of tight school
budgets, beef producers in Gulf
County and around the country
are helping but by offering educa-

materials, offered at little or no

as conservation, food safety,
nutrition, recycling and grocery
shopping for students in
preschool through college.
"Surveys of cattle producers
have shown that one of their main
concerns is the education of

In reading with your children
ask them to'tell you each of these
main points and then you have
helped them orally complete their
book report. In a story, there is
always a beginning, a middle and
an end, so when thinking of-the
story you may help them to recall
by breaking the story Into three
equal parts. We all can better
understand what we read if we
review it and help to pit our
thoughts in order.

pressed to find someone from
these groups who has anything
negative to say about the retiring
superintendent's career. He
leaves a flourishing school system
that is ,envied by most small

say that had he chosen to remain
another term; he could have done
so without much opposition.
Congratulations go to Jerry
Kelley, who will now assume the
unenviable task of following Mr.
Wilder's career in the superinten-

the challenge ahead, but having

Last summer I wrote, upon
returning from the Model Schools
Conference, that WHS would try
to begin working the 12 Guiding
Principles into our middle school
programs. These 12 characteris-
tics, properly approached, are the
stepping stones to help develop
good moral values.
The 12 characteristics are
truthfulness, respect, trust,
,responsibility, loyalty, compas-
sion, courage, perseverance, ini-
tiative, optimism, and adaptabili-
ty. 1, can't figure why anyone
would object to us promoting
these characteristics. 'Which of
these would any parent not want
their child to exhibit in a positive
manner? We feel It is necessary to
help combat the attitudes of many
of our middle ,schoolers, and
maybe improve their performance
in the classrooms.

Lost, lonely and forsaken,
Numb, dumb, mute.
"How can we sing the songs of the
while in a foreign land?"
No melody, no music, only silence.
Captive and without community,
lost and without hope,
lonely and without a friend.
Scared, scarred, solitary
such are the feelings of Exile.
"By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept."'
Exiled in Babylon?
Not a place, only a perception, a way of seeing.
You can be at lome, and yet exiled.

Love is the fulfilling of the

United Methodist Church mad, I get even." This was
an interesting sign, and long ago in the past
could have been my attitude. However, since I
have invited Jesus Christ into my life it could
not be my way.
This does not mean that we should not obey
the law, or ignore it. It means that we should not
do wrong to others. Love is patient and kind.
When we identify ourselves with Christ's name,
we should take pride in being called Christian.
Of course, criminals should be arrested and
pay the price for their crime. This should be left
to the authorities. Our Lord has told us to love
our neighbor as ourself. His love prevents us
from doing wrong to our neighbor.

This column is provided as a service of the Gull County Guidance Clinic, Inc.. a professional counseling
and mental health center. II is not intended to replace psychological counseling or treatment services.
I have had a lot on my mind
lately, what with my job, worry
about my aging parent, and my
children. It seems like I'm
stressed and angry most of the
time. I find myself saying and
doing things that I regret later.
and I don't like being this way.
Please don't tell me to sign up for
counseling. In this small town
everyone would know about it and
look at me like I'm weird. Is there
anything I can do for myself that
will help me deal with my feel-
Stressed in P.S.J.
'I like your catchy name, it
makes me think of Sleepless in
Seattle. However, you need some
help, with a problem and I'll see
what I can do.
First of all, you didn't tell me
what kind of support system you
Shave. Do you have a spouse or an
extended family that can help
take some of the pressure off you?
Are there friends you can do:
things with and talk to about your
These people can do some of
the work in helping to care for an
aging parent or they can have
your children over for dinner
when you're too tied up to cook.
They may not know just how pres-
sured you feel right now so it
might be a good idea to tell them.
Don't try too hard to present the
picture of the always in control
adult. Let others know you need
Second, -be sure you. are tak-
ing care of yourself by eating
properly, getting enough sleep,
and exercising -regularly. I'm not
saying you must lift weights or
run a marathon. Just do some-,
thing on your level and do it regu-
larly. It will help take your physi-
cal stress level down.
Third, make plans and sched-
ules of what you need to do and
when it needs to be done. If there
are more things to do than time to
do them in, then you need to look
for people to help outside your cir-
cle of family and friends.
You spoke of an aging parent.
Does that parent need to have.a
home health agency come In occa-
sionally?, Have you checked into
state and federal programs that
can help assume some of 'the
costs oficare for the elderly and
that can be a resource for services
Ifyou're having problems with
your children, check with the,
schools to see what services they
can offer or direct you toward.
Finally, let's talk about your con-
cern over receiving counseling in,
Port St. Joe. This is a small town,
no doubt about It. but counseling
is something a lot of people In PSJ
use to help them live a better life.
It doesn't mean you're "weird"
If you seek counseling, it just
means you recognize when a
problem is too big to handle alone.
You go to a doctor for the flu and
a dentist for a toothache, so it
only makes sense that you'd see a
professional counselor for prob-
lems of an emotional, behavioral,
or mental origin.
If the suggestions I've offered
are not sufficient to help you, give
us a call at the guidance clinic.
