Kelley Presides Over


First Board Meeting

Full Agenda on Tap in Newly Elected

Gulf Superintendent's Initial Session


It was new Superintendent of
Schools, Jerry Kelley's, first meet-
ing to preside over since election,
but the business of running the
school's activities didn't take pity
on him. The hard decisions were
right there waiting on his input.
The school board meeting
had to consider everything from
charges of inequity of space allot-
ted for girls' sports in the high
school year book, to the decision
on selection of an architectural
firm to draw plans for the renova-
tion of the Port St. Joe Elemen-
tary School.
Everything considered took
only a sentence or two to settle:
everything, that is; except the
school district employing a com-
puter technician to care for the
growing number of computers
and networks in every school in
the county.
SGene Mc roan of PortSt. Joe
was named 'to the job -and- fe-
ceived almost unanimous approv-
al of the board members. The
only opposition came from Mary
Pridgeon and she qualified her'
vote for the official minutes. She
cast a 'nay' vote because of the
salary stipulated for McCroan to
receive.
Principal Wes Taylor: of Port
St. Joe High, School spoke 'in fa-
vor of making an exception in
McCroan's case, stating, 'We're
lucky to get someone with
McCroan's knowledge of comptit-
ers. He has saved the schools
thousands of dollars during, the
past year, in installation alone.
He knows -computers and their
operation."-
Tom Semmes, who was visit-
ing the meeting, gave some crite-
ria the board needs to consider in
hiring someone to oversee the op-
eration. Semmes said he had
worked in a similar capacity 'for
several years in Washington, D.C.
As for the salary paid for the
service, Kelley reported that the
school system had hired teachers
in the past, giving them the bene-
fit of their years of service. 'We're
not setting any new precedent in
this .instance," the superinten-


dent said.
ARCHITECT SELECTION
The board is in the midst of a
selection process to hire an archi-
tect to draw plans for the elemen-
tary school project. They have be-
gun conducting interviews of ar-,
chltectural firms and are ready to,
narrow down the field of appli-
cants.
At a meeting scheduled for:
January 29. consideration will be
made for selection of the final
three firms still in the running.
The selection meeting will be held
(See KELLEY on Page 3)


After not having met in regu-
lar session for a month due to the
holiday season, the Gulf County
Commission tackled a full agenda
during their meeting Tuesday
evening.
Gulf County Senior Citizens
Director Jerry Stokoe approached
the board updating them 9n the
status of the group's transition
moving into the Stiles .Brown
Senior Citizens Complex. He told
the board that Mr. Brown's dream
(former senior citizens group
director) had become a reality as
he thanked them and the admin-
Istrative staff for being a part of
making it come true.'
He said the senior citizens
had moved into the complex, and
with the exception of a few minor
touch-up details ;t was 100%
complete.
Stokoe asked the board to
pass a resolution, extending 'the
group's line of credit with Citizens:
Federal Savings Bank $12,000; O
He noted that final construction
costs had run 'a little over the
anticipated figures. Board chair-
man Nahatn 'Peters, Jr. asked
.'their attorney,' Tim McFarland, to
get with Stokbe and draft a reso-
lution for the -board's considera-
ton.


Workshop Between Dog
Hunters and FGFWFC Set
Board chairman Nathanr
Peters, Jr. told the board that the
Florida Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission had agreed' to
hold a workshopp ,ilth the- board
concerning deer hunting with
dogs Wyednesday, February 5 at
16:00 p.m. in the commission
meeting ropm.
Jdhn Garner approached the,
board during their Decem iber I1I
:- m'ti ^ rif -'of -the :og
hunters, expressing his concern
over a letter issued by the
FGFWFC that he understood was
suggesting ending dog hunting in
the state.
SThe board offered to contact
the state agency and attempt to
set up a workshop that might
clarify what their intent is and
give the hunters an opportunity to
have some Input.
After contacting FGFWFC
Executive Director Allan L.
Egbert, the February 5th date was
agreed to.
Gulf County Light Industrial
Air Park
Dennis Weaver approached
the board representing a group.
Interested In developing a light
industrial air park at Costln
Airport near Jones Homestead.
Weaver said he wanted to clarify
the group's Intentions.'We're not
proposing big factories or assem-
by plants, but rather clean, quiet.
light industry only for the air
park."
He and Commissioner Warren
Yeager said they had received


some calls from residents of the
area concerned about the types of
industry that might be located at
the airport if it's developed.
The group approached the
board during a workshop session
'last Monday seeking their support
for the light industrial air park
concept and aid by requesting the
Apalachee Regional Planning


Council to assist the group with a
feasibility study of the project.

Tanks Come Tumbling Down


Demolition of one "of
the old Hess Oil tanks,
scheduled as a demonstra-
tion was postponed several
times Friday. Razing of the
tanks is to make way for
the new marina project
scheduled to begin soon in
the same area. High winds
and threatening weather
delayed the demonstration
which was finally accom-
plished late Friday after-
. noon.',. ..
Delays were also caused
by the fact that a portion
of the tanks were three
layers of steel which had to'
be cut through in order to
fell them, causing an errat-
ic pattern to the manner in
Which they came down.
The high winds, which
started early Thursday
morning, were responsible
for affecting two other
tanks which were' sched-
uled for pulling down Fri-
day. The tanks had already


- been 'pa~rtilly-" dmolished
when the winds came along
and completed the job,
making more work for the
contractor.
A piece of heavy equip-
ment finally completed the


i'i"teri i y-eabte-wasu at-
tached to the top of the
tank and the machine
pulled it down.
Doing the demolition
work is Ferguson Harbour
Corporation.


Wewa/Panama City Calls Toll Free
Wewahitchka phdne customers can now call Panama City num-
bers toll free.
St Joseph Telecommunications announced this week that effec-
tive January 14. Wewahitchka customers-will be able to call Panama
City telephone numbers in the same manner as a local: call. This
Extended Area Service (EAS) is a result of a petition to the Florida
Public Service Commission by the Gulf County Commission request-
ing toll free calling between Gulf County and Panama City.
The basic monthly charge will change from $6.30'to $8.40 for res-
idential customers, and from $17.25 to $22.90 for single line business
customers. Business rotary lines will be $29.80 and PBX Trunks will
be $38.93.
Originally, Wewahitchka customers were balloted and approved a
higher increase in rates; however, St Joseph applied for a different
type of regulation and is now able to reduce the previously approved
residential rate by $2.15 and the single line.business rate by $5.73.
Questions regarding this new service should be directed to the
telephone company at "811".

Architect's Drawing of First Three Buildings of New Installation


Gulfranklin Center ToBegin Construction In Early '97

First Unit of Gulf Coast Community College Branch Campus to Open With 1998 Winter Semester


Start of construction of the
new Gulf/Franklin Center, a
branch of Gulf Coast Community
College, in Port St. Joe is sched-
uled in early 1997 with the first
classes opening the Winter
Semester of 1998.
The 16,000 square foot facili-
ty will be located on the southeast
side of the city boundary at the
intersection of Garrison Avenue
and U.S. Highway 98.
A wide boulevard drive from'
the avenue sweeps through the


heavily wooded, 10-acre site to
reach convenient parking areas
surrounding all buildings.
The facility will be housed in
three, 5,000 square foot buildings
connected by breezeways. The
central core is reached from the
main drive between national and
state flag staffs across a welcom-
ing, brick paved courtyard. This
central atrium can be used as a
general meeting place and for
social and college events.
Administrative offices are housed


.in the building along with the .lat-
est electronic equipment to meet
direct communication with the
main campus in Panama City.
To the south of the'Admin-
istrative Building is a six-class-
room, multi purpose educational
building. One of these classrooms
has been designated as a perma-
nent facility for Law Enforcement
Correctional Officer training pro-
Sgrams.
The north structure will
,house the computer labs, univer-


sal science lab for physics, chem-
istry and biology studies, a semi-
nar room and a student lounge.
Design of the facility and
administration .of construction is
being handled by Kendrick-David-
Dowling Architects. "Aesthetical-
ly," the project architect Jim
Kendrick III explained, "the coas-
tal character of surrounding area
buildings, with rusticated exterior
finish, wide-eaved hipped metal
roofs, large louver-vented cupolas
and a clock tower influenced the


design. In addition, exterior cor-
ner pilasters, porch and covered
walkways columns incorporate
the same detail used similarly
throughout the original main
campus, as well as color schemes,
to tie the two campuses together."
Bids will be taken at 2 p.m.,
Tuesday, January 21, in the
Gardner Seminar Room at Gulf
Coast Community College follow-
ing the pre-bid meeting that was
held at the college on Tuesday,
January. 14 at 10.a.m.

Airport

Every Growing Community
Needs a Functioning Facility


I


k Hunker Down with Kes by Kesley Colbe




Editor Sleeps While Rome Burns


ADD TO THE ITEMS slated for development during 1997,
one airport. It's just another nail in the plank of construction
:which is being accomplished or initiated in Port St. Joe and its
environs during th6 coming year. And, most of the projects are
merely springboards for bigger things on the horizon, as yet un-,
known; the cause.for greater things which are sure to come.,
We were a part of an airport development movement, several
years ago, during the years when we were involved in flying an
airplane...Maybe the efforts of our group were premature, or
maybe the in-betweenyears are just wasted years; who knows?
The thing is, this latest attempt at airport development has a
good chance at becoming reality rather than just wishful desires.
WE HAVE NO THOUGHTS of Port St. Joe becoming an At-
lanta or even a Panama City, so, far as air traffic is concerned,
but it's a lead pipe cinch an improved airport is sure to help our
commercial development expand! :
With expanding air travel taking place all around us: with
each and every little hamlet in Florida either developing or im-
proving existing airports; it behooves Port St. Joe and Gulf
County to get cracking with this project or get left behind, won-
dering what happened.
WE HAVE THE NUCLEUS of an airport already built in what
has affectionately been dubbed, "Jones Homestead Internation-
al", but it needs improving because of increased air traffic.
Thirty-five years ago, we would have settled for the facilities
located at Jones Homestead. Today, these facilities are now woe-
fully inadequate. The Jones Homestead installation served well
in generating air traffic, but the equivalent of a "four-lane street"
is needed now.
The best part about the proposed improvements is that the
developer is willing to put some of his own money into the pro-
ject and the remainder will cost the county nothing. They belong
to the Apalachee Regional Planning Council, paying annual
dues. The survey asked for can be a part of the services we are
due out of that organization.
The developers are not asking for much; just a feasibility
survey. That should be little enough to invest.



New Laws Effective
A GAGGLE OF NEW STATE laws went into effect recently.
which will cause some to moan and some to shout "hallelujah!"
There's something for everyone, as well as plenty of those super-
fluous laws which some say we didn't need.
The fishermen, for example, are hanging their heads in dis-
belief, consternation and anger, at the new anti-fishing laws
which are strengthening the attempt to put them out of busi-
ness.
We still feel that eventually Florida's "anti" stance toward
commercial fishermen, singling them out as the only cause for
some diminishing species, will be declared unconstitutional.
.Aslong;astt.stat.andthe ,ntipon,allo the..sale.cigar-
oettes and alcohol to be legal activities, we don't thrilk they have a
leg to stand on in attempting to legislate commercial fishennen
out of business.
STILL ANOTHER NEW law will affect Junior and his new bi-
cycle he received for Christmas. The law now is that he must
also wear a protective helmet while riding it.
"It's too dangerous for the little tyke to go riding his bicycle
without a helmet," the law says, in effect. This one will draw
some grumbling, because some parents don't want the responsi-
bility of making sure their children wear the protective gear eve-
ry time they go for a spin.
On the other hand, President Clinton signed an order in the
waning days of 1996, which would order safety bag manufactur-
ers to cause them to open up with less force and would allow
those most affected, adversely, by the exploding bags to have
them disconnected in their cars.
Do you sense a slight case of inconsistency here?
AND, A NEW LAW tightens the DUI law. lowering the legally
intoxicated test for under age drivers to .02 rather than the .08
blood alcohol level required for adult drivers. And. the penalty is
tighter, too.
The thinking is, we suppose, you're not quite as dead if you
get killed by a drunken adult driver as you are if killed by an un-
Sderage drinking driver.


Fifty. FIFTY! Ha! Little do they
know .. .. I was born in
January, 1947. That's the only
part of the story that was even
half-right. I was one in January of
1948. So, 'if you can add a lick,
that would make my tenth birth-
day in 1958. I was twenty in
1968, thirty in '78, forty in '88,
and will be fifty in 1998.
Hey. by my own count-I'm
only forty nine!
My way-much older brother
who spent three seasons in Ms.
Clella Mae Carter's freshman
remedial math class because of
poor ciphering all of a sudden is
an expert in the numbers game-
and the writing business.
I DON'T THINK SO!
Course. some of you out there
have hurt my feelings somewhat
this past week with comments


like:
"Boy, Leon got you good."
"I have noticed that you are
running a little slower than last
year."
"Leon's a natural." (I kind 'a
enjoyed this one-back home on
the farm Dad near 'bout daily
would look at Leon, shake his
head, and say. "Surely, there's
something you can do right son,
we just need to keep looking.")
"Leon ought 'a be writing your
stories all the time."
S4 "It ,must 'a been wonderful
growing up with "such a caring.
loving older brother."
"Gosh. Leon is ten times bet-
ter than you arel"
"Can you get Leon to do some
more?"
Listen, I didn't "get him to do"
the first one. He ain't never done
nothing in our whole lives that I
"wanted him to do." He'd be out
behind the barn beating the day-
lights out of me. "Leon, stop it."
Do you think he quit? We'd be
down at the big ditch on Nicky
Joe's Cushman Eagle, "Leon. I

don't think you can jump it on
this thing. ."
VAAROOOMT M!
He climbed over the side of
that big bridge at Paris Landing
spanning the Tennessee River.
"Leon, this is nuts, it's a hundred
feet to the water! You're not going
to jump off here?"
"No. I'm not. I'm doing a swan
dive."
I don't.have a clue as to how
my way-much older brother got
his own column at my expense. If
I had to guess. I'd say the entire
working staff at The Star con-
spired against me. I confronted
the editor. "What kind of editing is
it when you let just any Tom. Dick
or Leon off the street come in and
write anything they want to
write?" I was getting a little angry
now. I've been churning out these
blurbs for years and years.
Where's the loyalty? As a matter
of fact. I wrote my all time best
ever article-and I got pre-empted
by a novice. You folks ivlll never
get to gaze upon my crowning
achievement, my masterpiece, my
one stroke of brillance-"Wesley.


how could you pick Leon's over
mine?"
"I read 'em."
A real writer my hind foot! He
put the actual weight of Barbara
Boyd in the paper. In pounds! No
writer is going to do that! You can
say she was rather large. Or that
hei sister is an aircraft carrier. Or
you could hint that she doesn't sit
down, she drops anchor. Or she
stretches across two time zones.
But you can't put the actual
weight ..... and he didn't even
get that right. He said she
weighed 325 lbs. Itisten. I knew
Sole Barbara just as good as he
did-she wouldn't go an ounce
over 290.
And please, read my lips here.
I did not run her "unmention-
ables" up the high school flag
pole. And it wasn't the Fourth of
July as Leon reported. It was the
Monday night of Easter vacation
week. I think Yogi and Ricky Gene
and some others talked LaRenda
Bradfield into slipping over to

Just a Little of This and A Little of That


THIS COLUMN MIGHT have
several subjects before I get to the
end of it. I had several things to
discuss; neither of them deserve
a. full-blown column but all de-
serve some mention or explora-
tion. You could entitle this col-
umn, "Etc." or maybe "Pot Pourri"
and it would be aptly named.
You might think I haven't a
serious subject to report on this
week, but others-would say I sel-
dom have a serious subject mat-
ter to explore in this space. But
that's not so this week. I have
several serious matters to report
on, such as our Star columnist,
Kesley Colbert. reaching the ma-
ture milestone of 50 years of age.
As his.brother, Leon, wrote in last
week's paper, he has reached an
ages of wondering why he hun-
kered down In the first place if it
was going to be such a chore to '
Shunker back up again.
Kes has to realize that he has
reached the era of caution now
and should forget running

around and trying to keep up
with the adolescents. His should
be a practice of caution from here
on out.
But, I didn't even intend to
write about Kes at all in this
week's column: that just slipped
out.

LET ME TELL you in passing
what a fellow reported to me last
week. I don't know whether it is
true or not. I have no valid reason
to doubt this fellow's report; how-
ever. But, let me qualify this little
story by reporting that I find it a
little hard to believe: not impossi-
ble to believe,. you understand,
but just a little hard!


I was attending the St. Joe
Bay Committee meeting last
Thursday and expecting to hear
some earth-shattering informa-
tion on the condition of the bay
here. Dr. Bob King, the chairman
'of the committee, had made ar-
rangements for Susan Anderson
to come spea'to us.
Who is Susan Anderson. you
ask? If you must ask. apparently
you have had no dealings with
the Department of Community Af-
fairs. She is the person who ei-
ther approves or dis-approves of
anything you have to do which re-
quires approval .of a state official.'
But, I wasn't going to report
on her in this space. I'll do that in


another space in this week's is-
sue. The point I wanted to get
around to. is a conversation I had
with Elmo Sander. You know
Elmo.
Well, he told me that his
daughter told him a story which
Just might solve a mystery for
some of you folk in Port St. Joe.
His daughter land it has been
more than ive minutes since he
related her name to me, so don't
expect for me. at my advanced
age, to remember it, so I could re-
port it to you. here. was passing
by the hospital and witnessed
this phenomenon the other day..
A .hawk swooped down out of
the sky, its claws extended in a
"catch"' position, and sunk them
Into a.full grown house cat, flying
offvwith the cat, to have it for din-
ner, I suppose.

CAN YOU IMAGINE a hawk car-
rying off a full grown house cat?
Maybe that's where the house
cats are going you folks are miss-


ing from time to time.
I didn't know hawks dined on
house cats. I thought hawks and
house cats had gastronomic
tastes which were similar in na-
ture-rats and mice were their
primary prey.
But. if Elmo's story is true-
and, again, I have no reason to
question the truth of his story-
that could explain the mystery of
the missing house cats!
My granddaughter-in-law is
missing two cats. Do you reckon
a hawk swooped down and car-
ried them away? They live in the
general area of the hospital; cer-
tainly within a hawk's feeding
range from the hospital.
It could bel

ANOTHER SUBJECT is this:
The city has contracted with
the Ferguson Harbour company
to remove the old Hess Oil stor-
age tanks [formerly the South-
eastern Pipeline Company tank
farm] and they had just started


work on a $50.000 contract to
take down and remove some'of
them.
One tank had been taken
down and at least two more were
partially dismantled.
Well, you know what the
weather was like from the middle
of last week. on. The winds blew
and the rains came: forerunners
of some mighty disagreeable
weather for the pearl of the Gulf
coast.
To make a long story short.
the winds last Wednesday night
finished the Job'on two tanks
which had been partially taken
down. The wind finished dropping
them on the ground.
What I was wondering, is,
does the city get any credit on
their contract with, Ferguson for
the wind doing a portion of their
job for them?
Maybe they should have a
meeting to decide the matter. Call
it "an act of God," or maybe a
"good fortune of God."

Since the effects of divorce
are so far reaching and intense,
parents and children often get
stuck in feelings of anger, sad-
ness, and confusion. These feel-
ings bog down the natural
resilience of individuals to
change. This training will help
parents understand what is going
on and how to help their children
and themselves heal. The training
will help parents and children
deal effectively with family life dis-
ruption.
Professional counselors from
the clinic will conduct this three-
hour Saturday workshop. This is
expected to be a continuing series
that will be offered on Saturdays
each month. Interested parents
are asked to call Gulf County
Guidance Clinic, Inc. at 227-1145
and ask for the "Parenting After
'Divorce" course. A nominal fee
will be charged, and a certificate
of completion and booklet will be
provided.

Kennedy Asks for Community Aid for Grant


Gulf County Artificial Reef
Coordinator Bill Kennedy is again
asking for the community's help
to apply for another $25,000 in
state grant funds to help fund the
program.
$35,000 was spent last year
developing "Sandy Reef' off St.
Joseph Peninsula, $25,000 of


which came from the state grant
and $5,000 each from the City of
Port St. Joe and Gulf County.
Over 400 tons of debris was
dumped on the 1/2 square mile of
reef area, but Kennedy said it still
remains only about 10% com-
plete. He said it could take six to
seven years to complete Sandy


Reef, adding more structures to it
every year.
Of course, the key to the reef
program's success depends on
funding. Kennedy is asking that
local sports fishermen, charter
boat operators, bait & tackle and
sporting goods stores, or any


other interested parties send let-
ters supporting and expressing
the need for the reef program and
its impact on the area.
He said the Artificial Reef
Committee hopes to further
expand Sandy Reef and either
build a new inshore- reef or
expand upon an existing reef,
such as the Jaycee Reef or the
Keiser Reef, this year. The com-
mittee is Interested In receiving
input on these ideas and other
Ideas from all interested parties,.
They are also seeking v\olLteers
to help the reef program including
diving and monitoring the reef
sites, helping to acquire material
and organizing the reef program.
Letters should be addressed
to: Gulf County Artificial Reef
Committee, c/o Bill Kennedy, 402

THE LINGERING COLD
IS BAD NEWS

How does your cold usually start out cough, sore throat,
S sniffle? For each of us it is most often the same symptom for each
cold. And usually your cold will run its course in about the same
S way every time. If it's not really a severe one you might even get
rid of it without seeing your physician.
S The cold you want to be extra careful with is the one that does
Snot follow your usual pattern. Either it starts off differently or it

Department of Health Streamlines Agency

Secretary Says Department Will Be Number I Advocate For Florida's Health


Last Monday, among public
health workers and public health,
supporters at the Leon County
Health Department, Governor
Lawton Chiles unveiled Florida's
newest agency, the Department of
Health.
"The Department of Health is
brand new, but Its workers are
veterans of some of our most
important public health success-
es," Governor Chiles said. "These
health care professionals have a
track record of promoting and
Protecting the health and safety of
Floridlanse-and-that's their No.-I
, goal."
The Florida Legislature creat-
ed the new Department of Health
last year along with the new
Department of Children and
Families. The Department of
Health became "official" on
January 1.
"It Is fitting that we launch
our new department where we
connect with the Floridians we
serve-in their communities,"
Secretary James T. Howell said.
"We have streamlined the
Department of Health, eliminating
regions or districts and relying on
our county health departments
and local county conimissions to
lead us in tailoring services to
each county. A flat agency will
help us ensure efficiency and
accountability, and it will put
decision-making closer to where


decisions have impact"
The new Department of
'Health, with its mission To pro-
mote and protect the health and
safety of all residents", serves vir-
tually every Floridlan, through
tracking infectious diseases: help-
ing mothers and babies with pre-
natal care; well-baby visits: pro-
viding immunizations for children
and adults; primary care; school
health programs; regulation of
prescription drugs: family plan-
ning services: and environmental
epidemiology.
.---- Onr-AJlyl; -l:997,-theldepart
ment will assume responsibility
for the program that regulates the
state's health care practitioners.
Howell said the new depart-
ment will focus on healthy out-
comes by measuring health indi-
cators in each county through
regular county health checkups.
"In order to be responsive we
need to constantly assess the
health of our communities,"
Howell said. "'his way, we can
pinpoint problems and work
: together with our communities to
. find solutions. The Department of
Health will operate more like a
business this way, always looking
to do its job better."
Howell said the department is
only a piece of the puzzle in solv-
ing the health problems In com-
munities. Local governments, vol-
unteer groups, health care orga-


nizatibris and the people of
Florida all have: a role as Florida
faces itsmiany health challenges.
"Florida is third in the nation
in AIDS cases, and nearly 2.8 mil-
lion of our citizens live without
health insurance. Too many kids
are having kids. Tobacco kills
28,000 Floridlans every year, yet
hundreds of our children begin
smoking every day. No one
department is going to be able to
turn that around. These are the
challenges of every Florida citizen.
I'd say we all have our work cut


out for us," Howell said..
Chiles and Howell thanked
Department of Health employees
for making a difference in the
lives of the people they serve.
"This is an outstanding team
of professionals who are commit-
ted to making a real difference in
the lives of Floridlans," Chiles
said.

Rotary Hears

Program On

Home Care
Cheryl Brown of Advanced
Home Health Care spoke to the
Rotary Club last Thursday at
their regular meeting. "Advanced
medical care in the home is noth-
S ing new." she said. "Doctors used
to do it all the time, but they
called It 'making house calls'."
The speaker told Rotarians
the care is all a part of more
economy in caring for people who
need specialized medical atten-
tion, but do not need to be hospi-
talized. 'The current trend of out- ,
patient surgical procedures has
done much to spawn in-home
nursing care." she remarked.
Home health can give ad-
vanced nursing care at less than
half the cost of remaining hospi-
talized in order to.receive neces-
sary attention and the patient
seems to recover faster when
placed is familiar surroundings.
Advanced home health care is
ordered by physicians with the
duration of the prescribed care
also determinedby a doctor.
The specialized care is ap-
proved by Medicare and private
medical insurance.
Guests of the club were Fer-
rell Allen, Dr. Vincent Ivers; Dick,
Reinhold and Neil MacKeown of
Port St. Joe; Bob Boldic, Jim Dur-

Men and women train togeth-
er from their first day in the Navy
just as they do aboard ships and
at shore commands around the
world. To reinforce the team con-
cept, Swan and other recruits also
were trained in preventing sexual
harassment and ensuring equal
opportunity.
Even as the naval service gets


smaller over the next few years,
highly motivated young people
like Swan are still finding, an
opportunity to improve their
.knowledge and education as they
become part of the most highly
technical naval force in history.:
This year alone the Navy will have
more than 57,000 job openings
and opportunities, most of which
include guaranteed'training.

The St. Joe Bay Committee
had, in its. first quarterly meeting
of the new year, concentrated on
reports from the people charged
with administering, making stud-
ies and awarding or denying per-
mits of one sort or another which
affects the bay, .last Thursday
morning.
The primary report was given
by Susan Anderson, Planner IV,
Department of Community Af-
fairs, Tallahassee.. Ms. Anderson
is charged with examining appli-
cations for compliance with the
Comprehensive Plan of the.
county which may affect .the bay
and its pristine condition.
SMs.. Anderson was quick to
say she does not give approval or
disapproval of any request for de-
velopment. She just examines the
requests for their compliance
with the law 'We have some defi-
nite laws on the books which all
projects must comply with and
my job. primarily, is to examine
applicants' eligibility."
-, Ms. Anderson said the crite-
ria the law -uses primarily is,
"Does it adequately protect the re-
source which is there?" She said
the Comprehensive Plan concept
was not adopted, with adequate
language and power, to protect
Florida's resources, until 1988.
Before that, all controls of re-
sources-both natural or people
--were largely left up to the: De-
partment of Environmental Pro-
tection.
"But people and their inter-
ests iheed protecting, too. Our
goal is to encourage that develop-
ment which is good for the com-
munity in the long run and dis-
courage that which is not," she
said.
"Sometimes, our opinions dif-
fer and we are in for a selling job;
trying to convince people of a lob.-
cal area that our decision is best.
in the long run, for the communi-
ty," she said.
As an example, she said ap-:
proval of Port St. Joe's new mari-
na is before her now for the agen-
cy's approval of construction
plans. She said the agency must
consider several factors before
giving its nod to proceed with
construction. The impact the ma-
rina will have on the bay must be
considered. Where will the spoil
be. placed? What effect will the
construction have on wetlands in
the area? and other questions of
like nature.
The state official didn't give

St. Joe Bay Committee meeting.


any indication as to how her deci-
sion would go, in the final analy-
sis of the marina permitting.
COUNTY PLAN
Don Butler gave an in-depth
explanation of why the county
Comprehensive Plan came about
and the reasoning behind it.
First, he said, the Compre-,
hensive Plan was adopted in
1990, at the insistence of the
state's Department of Community
Affairs.
'This did eliminate a hodge-
podge of building regulations.
which depended largely on the
HRS septic tank rules for regula-
tion." Butler said. "Our building
codes were a loosely compiled
system of 'just buy your permit
and do your thing'." he said.
"Now, a permit states the to-
pography of the land involved,
gives a definite address, regulates
the density for occupation in all
parts of the county, and locates
the building on any given plot of
land, even stipulating how large
the building can be. in some in-
stances," the administrator said.
Butler said Gulf County only


has 3.5% of its environs stipulat-
ed as residential land. 80% is
designated as agricultural,' and
1.5,6 is designated as mixed resi-.
dential and commercial.
CITY'S PLAN
City Clerk Pauline Pendarvis,:
and engineer Phillip Jones gave;'
an explanation of city compliance''
with its version of a comprehen-
:sive plan. Pendarvis stated the
_city's plan largely follows the
county plan. She then had Jones
outline several projects the city is
cranking up and how they are be-
ing made compatible with the.
plan.
SJones pointed to the rehabili-
tation, of Reid Avenue and
claimed this project would re-
move, rather than add to, any
problem from excessive storm wa-
ter. He then explained how'the
street would be treated, saying.
"The manner in which we are re-
building the sidewalks and provi-
sion of numerous areas of plants
and flowers will give us an even
better percolation of storm water
than we have at the present."
Jones went on to explain how

Dog Turns On His Master


Bay Committee Hears Report Necessity To Be


Concerned With Potential Polluting Activities

DCA Official, Susan Anderson, Says Ageny "Goes By The Law"


It was a hard decision td
make,1 but after, watching .the
January 2 Sugar Bowl game,
between the Florida State,
Seminoles and the Universityof
Florida Gators, Baron McKnight
(German shepherd owned by Jim
and Debbie McKnight, of
Wewahitchka) decided it might be
best if he changed his loyalty from
the F.S.U. Seminoles, and dressed
instead in his newly selected team
colors of orange and blue.
At first, Baron just lay around-
as he thought that he had possi-
bly done wrong to his master;:
since after all, aren't dogs sup-;;
posed to be their master's best
friends?
But after much pondering
(and also lots of help from other
neighborhood Gators) Baron'
decided to make the change and
show his school spirit for his new
team, the new national champi-'
ons, the University of Florida
Gators.
So, after changing into his
new team attire, Baron then took
the time to sit and pose proudly
for a snapshot and then anxious-
ly awaited his master's return
from New Orleans so he could
greet him with the news.
This article is dedicated to'
Jim McKnight, longtime, loyal
F.S.U. fan from al, of his Gator
friends, (especially those that
received gifts of "corn" after last
year's loss to the Nebraska.
Cornhuskers).


the pending sewer and water pro-
ject in the Ward Ridge area will
remove the need for numerous
septic tank installations in the\
area.
CHAIRMAN REPORTS
The chairman revealed that
plans were progressing for the
"city's first "St. Joe Bay Scallop'
Festival" to be held in the final
week of August. '!It's coming
along, with the. committee ready
to present the idea for approval in
the near future."
King said the Chamber ,of
Commerce is giving a great
amount of input and support to
this project.
The Festival is being initiated
to draw attention to the scallop.
,population in the bay.
'We also are moving in the di-
rection of requesting that the
scallop season be extended
through September, .when they
are of a better size to harvest,"
the chairman said.
County Commissioner War-
ren Yeager reported that only
three weeks ago, the county gave
'Its support to this attempt by
-adoption of a resolution to pass
on to the regulatory body. 'We
have received no answer from
them, as yet," Yeager said.
The next meeting of the com-
mittee will be held on March 13
when the entire session will be
Devoted to discussions on scal-
lops.

Bonus Dividend
Is Announced
S In appreciation of a produc-
ive and successful year for
lTyndall Federal Credit union, the
Board of Directors has declared a
Bonus Dividend of 1% for the last
quarter of 1996.
"The continued support and
participation of our members has
brought about much success for
Tyndall Federal," states Pres-
ident/CEO Lynn W. Owen, Ill.
"Even as one of the largest credit
unions in the United States,
TFCU continues to provide the
quality member services that keep
us growing."


BEST FOOT FORWARD
By Dr. Stephen J. Gross, Podiatrist


WARTS
Fall is the season of the wart,
or at least when most people fi-
nally realize they picked up a
problem during the summer, and
they' had better do something
about it.
Warts are viruses that need
an opening to get into the- body.
Even 'a tiny opening will give
them a chance to, make them-
selves at home inside a-foot. Peo-
ple who go barefoot or wear flip
fops at the beach, for instance,
are particularly prone to this
problem because the sand is
sharp and can cause pinprick-


size cuts.
Warts begin
as tiny viral
growths that T.--' t
are cauliflower ,A
in appearance, and the same tex-
ture. An untreated wart grows
bigger and bigger; those on the
bottom of the foot are a real prob-
lem because they can't grow out-
wards, so they grow deeper Into
the foot.
Presented in the interest
of better foot care by:

why not make the second half of

first? Here are some New Year's
resolutions from parents deter-
mined, to make 1997 a great year
for their children ..
Start With Good Reading
'Habits
"We heard over and over how
much reading skills can 'be
Improved by regular read-aloud
times. But we never made them
part of our schedule. We've agreed ';
to read to Kelly every night at bed-
time-even if it's only five min-
utes. We're also going to make a
weekly trip to the library so she i
can choose her own books."
Make School A Priority
: "I've decided not to let TV and
video games take up so much of
my kids' time this year. Ten hours
a week will be the limit.And, 'on
the weekdays. homework must be .
done first!


Welcome back Sharks! I
hope everyone had a safe and
happy holiday.

Challenging Students ''::
How often do you see articles
and TV news shows about how
poorly U.S. students do when
compared to a certain standard?
And, generally the reason given is
the poor quality of schools and/or
the poor quality of teachers avail-
able in public schools. That is the':
easiest way to place the blame,
and sometimes lay 'the' ground-
work for asking for large, sums of
money to be used to "correct" the
situation. You often hear the
buzz-word- "accountability'-'"-
someone is going to hold the
schools or the teachers or the
administrators accountable for
poor student performance.
.While I don't doubt there .are
some poor schools and even some
poor teachers in the profession,
there is one thing about student
performance that is constant, and
that is to do better;, a student
needs to be challenged to do bet-
ter and better. He/She must have
a high goal presented that can be
achieved through. the hard work,
and direction. That requires the
cooperation of the student' and
the, support and cooperation of
parents.
If students are allowed to
avoid or transfer out of "difficult"
courses because a course is "too
hard", or because the teacher has
a reputation for requiring a lot of
work, then there is a stumbling
block. Even "CORE" or required
courses are affected if students,
for whatever the reason, are able
to lower the expectations in a
class because of pressure for the
students to receive higher grades
and protect GPA's needed for
graduation, honors, and awards,
etc.
:Each 'new, term brings a
relentless number of students to
the office to request schedule
changes, most of which must be
approved by parents. How many
do you think are trying to transfer
into something more difficult?
Varsity basketball-the boys
are playing well, upsetting
Blountstown last week before an
improving crowd. Two home
games to look ahead to are
January 21 and 23, Chatta-
hoochee and Grand Ridge. The
girls, short-handed due to
injuries, learned how tough Ponce
de Leon was as PdL ran (and I
mean ran) three different groups

up and down the court in a con-
vincing win over the Gators last
week. Our girls are not home
again until January 24 and 27.
Remember-WHS will host
the week-long district tournament
February 10 -14. Each night will
feature one boys' and one girls'
game. Plan to attend-we need
the community's support,!

Trust In


The Lord

Psalms 18:1,2 tells us,
S"I love thee, O Lord, my
strength. The Lord is my
Rock, and my fortress,
OliverF.Taylor and my. deliverer, my
Visitation Minister, First God, my rock, in whom I
United Methodist Church
take refuge, my shield,
and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold."
This is a statement of faith by the psalmist,
and ;it should be of every Christian. In our
humanity we sometimes feel that we are a self
made person. It is good to take. pride in. our
accomplishments. God expects us to be respon-
sible and-stand tall in the world.
We should never forget God, and that He is
also our rock and our salvation. As a Christian I
feel that God gives me strength daily. God is
dstrongnk than my humanity. Therefore, I trust in
Him. 7.

strength. Solomon saidi, "Trust in theLord with all your heart.
and lean not on your own understanding; in. all your ways
acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight."*

Dear Counselor: .
I have a fifteen-year-old..son.
who I am getting more and more
concerned about. He has always
been a nervous child with very poor
,self esteem. He has seen several
counselors in his past for many dif-
ferent problems. He had separation
anxiety, many different fears, and Is
still a hypochondriac.
Lately, though. I have noticed
some very strange behaviors. He
scrubs his hands until they are red
and uses almost an entire bar of
soap in the shower. When I ask him
about this, he just gets very angry.
Once he told me he was afraid of
germs. It's horrible, and I'm so wor-
ried about him.
Just recently I saw him in his
room trying to make his bed. He was
tucking in the corner and could not
seem to get It right. He kept tucking
and untucking the same corer over
and over again. I cried the rest of
the day.
I recently read an article about
schizophrenia, and it seems he has
some of the symptoms they
described. Could my son have this
illness? I am horrified that he could
spend the rest of his. life,sick and
; maybe even institutionalized.
Signed,
Mortified Mother
Dear Mortified Mother.
From the Information you gave
me I cannot be sure, but it appears
that your son more likely shows
symptoms of a different illness
called Obsessive-Compulsive Dis-
order. This illness is commonly
associated with other anxiety relat-
ed illnesses and is very treatable, in
most cases, with a combination of
medication and cognitive-behavioral
psychotherapy.
Some of the most common
symptoms of OCD are: 1) excessive
washing or cleaning; 2) repetitive or
ritualistic behaviors that have no
logical purpose, excessive checking
and rechecking of.door locks, light
switches, stove burners, or similar
security-related activities; 4) Unus-
ual obsession with organization: 5)
hoarding items that others would
throw away; 6) constant worrying
about insignificant things; 7) intru-,
sive and repetitive thoughts or'
thought patterns that are nonsensi-
cal or irrational.
:.These symptoms .are by nob
means inclusive, and it is not nec-


essary to have all of them for a diag-
nosis of QCD. You have already
desc-ibed many of' these symptoms,
in your letter.
Schizophrenia. another serious
mental disorder. Is still a possibility.
Schizophrenia usually includes hal-
lucinations which can take the form
of hearing voices or seeing things
that aren't there, and bizarre delu-
sions, which are strong beliefs that
have no basis In fact. The afflicted
person will continue to be certain of
the belief even when they have
undisputable evidence to the con-
trary.
Paranoia is a common delusion
among people with schizophrenia.
There are many other symptoms
and characteristics of schizophrenia
that would require an evaluation by
a mental health professional to
assess.
Whether your son has OCD.
which Is most likely from your
description, or another mental ill-
ness. I strongly recommend an eval-
uation to determine a diagnosis and
begin treatment. The experts In this
field are mental health professionals
such as psychiatrists, psychothera-
pists, and counselors. There are
several private clinics ri, oura area
that can treat either of'these illness-",
'es. Feel free to call the Gulf County
Guidance Clinic. Inc. which now
employs a child psychiatrist, psy-
chotherapists. and counselors who
can treat your son.
I can only imagine your concern
for your son. However, treatment is,
available and getting started early
can give your son land you) relief as
well as prevent the problem from
.getting worse. Instltutlonalization is
.not necessary for most people with
schizophrenia and rarely for those
I't~th OCD.
Sincerely,
Ed Dennis, MS
Clinical Services Supervisor
