Police Chief Chosen In:

Special Meeting By Board
Captain Jay Leffert of the Orange County
Sheriff's Office Selected from Field of Three


During a special meeting
of the Port St. Joe City
Commission held last
Wednesday, February 12, the
board unanimously decided
to call upon Orange County
Sheriffs Captain Jay Leffert
to fill the city police chief
position.
Leffert, a 30-year law
enforcement veteran, will'
report for duty on April 17.
He was selected from a
short list of three top appli-


N


cants, which had been
reduced from 20 applicants
by a board-appointed selec-
tion committee. The list
included Leffert, John E.
Williams (Pembroke Pines),-
and local police department
Lt. James Hersey.
Mayor Frank Pate said
after the board interviewed all
three candidates, Leffert's
experience and qualifications
placed him at the top of the
selection list.


Mayor
Ahead


Pate Suggests City Go
Now With D.R.. Study


Bill Kennedy, Preble-Rish,
Inc. engineer. reported to the.
board that he had met with repre-
sentatives of the Department of
Environmental Protection Mon-,
day to answer questions and
review the city's marina permit,
application.
Kennedy said they issued sev-
eral concerns about the applica-
tion, with the biggest one being
the large size of the boat basin
being proposed to only handle the
downscaled 47.wet boat slips. :
As previously reported in The
Star, the commission agreed at
their first meeting In February to
reduce the number of wet slips
from 120 to 47 while increasing
the number of dry slips to 96.
Their intent was to allow for
future growth of the number of
wet slips, yet avoid going through
.an expensive, time-consuming
DRI study. (Development of
Regional Impact).
The reduction put the project
under the DCA (Department of
Community Affairs) DRI thresh-
old.
Kennedy said DEP represen-
tatives were now questioning the
need for such a large boat basin
for only 47 wet slips.
During discussion, Mayor
Pate suggested to the board that if
the DRI study threshold contin-
ues to present stumbling blocks,
it might even be best to go ahead


with the study now,.:so as not to
limit the scope of the marina pro-
ject and Its ability to be profitable.
Kennedy also told the board
that DCA's 'letter of design
approval was written and waiting
to be signed by DCA Bureau
Chief. Tom Beck, according to his
telephone conversation with
them.
In Other Business
*Granted a temporary vari-
ance to Florida Coast Paper
Company allowing them to use
modular office space for a period
of one year.
*Agreed to advertise for bids
for three new vehicles: one car for!
the Port CSt. Joe Police
Department; one pick-up truck
for the Wastewater Treatment
Plant; and one pick-up truck for
the Water Department.
*Granted a temporary vari-
ance to Frank Utlout to hook his
motor home into city sewer while
he does repairs on his home.
*Approved a bid of
$45,973.00 for an overhead
bridge crane system for the
Wastewater Treatment Plant.
*Accepted a letter of retire-
ment from Horace Barr effective
February 28, 1997, after 27 years
of service with the city.

Dirty Deal

NOBODY IS GOING TO PAY private haulers for fill dirt so
long as the county will furnish the dirt and deliver it for free.
Right?
This is a known fact and the reason the free dirt business is
so good. The county can give dirt away and haul it, free of
charge, so long as they want to and never run out of customers.
There is a never ending supply of takers of free dirt.
County dirt hauling has been a controversial subject and the
cause of never ending changes in policy as long as we have been
attending county commission meetings. We suspect the practice
has been a continuous bone of contention ever since the county
was cut out of Calhoun County nearly 75 years ago.
THE SUBJECT COMES UP, almost without fail, after each
election. Could it be that the sitting incumbent hauls dirt in or-
der to get votes? Surely not! But, there it is, staring us in the
face following every election.
It seems we remember a couple of years back [immediately
after a previous election] the commission voted to pbide by the
law and quit furnishing [and hauling] free dirt. It seems they had
gravitated back into the business by hauling an occasional load
of dirt and dumping it on the right-of-way next to a constituent's
property, where it would be handy for the said constituent to
spread the dirt on his property.
Following that practice the commission even agreed that any
dirt which was hauled and dumped should be spread by county
crews on county property, within 24 hours of being dumped, be-
fore a private individual could get it.
THEN, TOO, IT WASN'T too many years ago that the county
was hit with a lawsuit for such practices, by a private individual
who was attempting to make a living by. hauling and spreading
dirt, but` couldn't so long as the county provided the service,
free. '
Just prior to the last election, many private individuals re-
ceived free loads of dirt, reviving an age-old practice. They didn't
even try to disguise it. but dumped it on the edge of whichever
-piece of property was-to receive the favor.
Once again, the county is headed in the proper direction by
refusing to provide and haul free dirt to individuals. Leave that
up to those who are making'a living performing that service.
Besides, it's against the law!



Hunting Lands Scarce
ONE OF THE REASONS people are so proud to call Gulf
County home is the fine fishing and hunting to be enjoyed al-
most anyplace or anytime in the county. Now a portion of this
freedom is in danger of being taken away from us and the practi-
tioners of dog hunting are throwing up a defense against its re-
strictions.
We don't hunt with dogs, nor do we suspect the majority of
the citizens do so. But, a large enough number enjoy the prac-
tice and are ready to stubbornly resist the limitations of the
practice to make it seem like a majority.
Hunting is enjoyed by a wide segment of Gulf County's popu-
latirl-It's also a good, clean, desirable, sport which many of the
older residents recall fondly, having participated in during their
youth. It's an emotional thing.
WE RECALL, NEARLY 25 years ago [dr perhaps longer] that
Art Runnels, who was an officer then in. the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission, spoke to the Rotary Club on this same
subject. Art was a captain, we believe, with the Panama City of-
fice. He told the. Rotary Club, then, that the time would come
when hunting would be more tightly regulated. He predicted that
folks wouldn't be able to hunt unless they knew a landowner,
owned open land,, or paid landowners for the privilege of hunting
on their property.
"It's already a fact in South Florida," he said.
i. WELL, IT IS.NOW BECOMING a-fact here in the Panhandle,
also. Deer hunting lands, except for those lands held under pri-
vate lease, are fast.disappearing in the Panhandle. Is it any won-
der the spectre of controlling dog hunting has arisen? A dog will
cross private lease lines as if they weren't there.
Some hunters also make a nuisance of themselves on private
and public lands, making it difficult for careful hunters to main-
tain the privilege of utilizing private property on which to enjoy
their sport.
:Once again, it is the problem of too many people living on a
finite amount of property and expecting to conduct business as
we always have in the past.

Hit's All In How You Say Hi.


You say "E'-bon-ics", I say "E-
bon'-ics", there's folks some-
where I'm sure that say "E-bon-

fuss all of a sudden. I've been'
yelling for years that the quirks

folks. You know wiit I mean,

I'm the only guy now in the whole


world that don't talk a little
"funny" at times. Shoot, every-
thing I say makes perfectly good
sense to mel Sometimes I can't
say that about you .....
The humorous angle to this
story is someone wants to official-
ly do something with the way a
group of us talk. I can't wait to
"hear" how this one turns out.
I know we're pretty legalisti-
cally ,inclined .these days, but
somehow, I don't 'think you can

way back in the first grade. I knew
right then this "verbalizing game"
was about to get a mite compli-

one day and said that ain't wasn't

Very carefully!
If we do one thing, we might
cause hard feelings through a
non intentional action. On the
other hand, we might alienate the
person with the axe to grind be-
cause we didn't pick up his or her
pet peeve and run with it.,
For what purpose?
This particular time a family
had something stolen or vandal-
ized which they had placed on a
loved one's grave site. They were
angry over the incident, as any-
one can understand. They wanted.
to put it in the paper and auto-
matically, we suppose, this activi-
ty' was supposed to restore the
particular grave site to the condi-
tion it was in before it was dis-


turned.
We wish it were so, but, in re-
ality, unless the article struck the
perpetrator with pangs of remorse
over his or her heartless action,
'we had just as well be spitting
into the wind. It would do no
good, whatsoever.

BUT, WE SUPPOSE the good
folks are mad at us now, as well
as burned to a crisp over the ac-
tivity which transpired at their
relative's grave site. And, I can
understand that.
I'm perfectly willing to publi-
cize their plight if it would have
any positive results. I wish we
had that sort of influence.


I !have printed article after ar-
tide publicizing people's angst
over having graves vandalized. It's
a problem'which only the perpe-"
trator's sympathetic feelings to-i
ward the feelings of the victims
can have any hopes of solving.
Personally, I fail to see whatf
"kicks" a person or persons get
out of causing more grief to an-
other person or persons than
they have already felt due to the
death of a loved one. Vandalizing
a grave can only pile more grief,
on top of the. original sadness
over the death.

I DON'T WANT TO seem as if
I am heartless, because I don't do


The cemetery is in an isolated

Such activities. It would be nice if
we could catch them' in the act
arid make examples of them but,
suh is unlikely to happen.
It's frustrating, I know, to
have plants removed from graves,
flowers taken, trees dug up, deco-
rations of remembrance removed,
and any other desecration unfeel-
,ing people can think of.
The only way one can prevent
this activity is to station a guard
right beside the grave.
Unfeeling people will not only
take flowers or decorations from
graves, but they will also disturb
the gravesite, itself. One family,
long gone from the area, got so
frustrated they couldn't stand it


A GRAVESITE IS, mostly,
considered sacred and is left un-
disturbed. It is a pity all people
can't have respect for the final
resting places of everyone.
Some callous people will dis-
turb anything which belongs to
someone else, thinking it funny to
be able to cause other people con-
sternation.
People offer rewards for the
apprehension of such characters,
search for information leading to
their apprehension, fuss and
fume over their actions, all to no
avail. The vandals know this and
so operate with virtual immunity.

the vicinity of the cemetery, from.
years gone by. Many are not even-
in the confines of the cemetery;,.
but spread out through the,
woods, in vacant lands. A cluster'
of graves is to be found immedi-
ately adjacent to the Episcopal
Church property-all of which
have not been disturbed. There
are graves from old St. Joseph in
the old cemetery, virtually all of
which have been opened.
.There is no rhyme or reason
to the disturbance of graves. A-L
we can do is appeal to the sympa-

his family. This immediately be-
came a popular spot, specializing
in famous Greek cuisine. Gulf

unfortunately its life was short
lived when Hurricane Flossy se-1

have a need for a fishing pier, so
in 1961, Charlie Parker who had'
then become 'co-owner of the
Mexico Beach Corporation, Inc.;,
built Surf Pier. This was located
toward the eastern end of towni at
the then operating Surf Drive Inn.
This is the present location of the
Dolphin Run townhouses. Surf
Pier, was operated by "Doc" Gillis-
pie who will; be remembered by-
most old-timers as ,a good fisher-
man, and a good "fish-taler".,, Un-
fortunately, in 1975 Hurricane.
Eloise damaged the pier so badly
it had to be taken down.


Shortly after the incorpora-
tion into a town government,
Charlie Parker who was the first
mayor of Mexico Beach, ap-
proached the Bay County Com-'
missioners for a state recreation
grant. This grant was enough
money to build a pier at the site
of the original Tapper pier. Bay
County workmen and equipment
were then used to construct the
pier that is still in existence to-
day. By 1969,, this pier was in full
operation, and Bay County, real-
ized the pier would be maintained
easier by the City of Mexico
Beach and soon donated It to the
city. Since then the City of Mexico
* Beach 'has owned, operated and
maintained, the pier. Fortunately,
the pier received only minimal
damage from Hurricane Opal in
1995 and the city was, quick to
respond and make the pier opera-
tional again. ,.

"No sir, that's Bar-bar-bar--

I had this English professor in

any other of those callsy" you
could think, of or an intelligent,

passes to another-it's O.K. Good
grammar is nice but it ain't essen-

came evident that funds would be
needed in order to cover the costs
of the community projects the
members chose to support. After
giving it much thought, they
agreed upon the idea of a New
Year's Eve Gala as their first
fundraising event.
Each of the members formed
a gala committee and soon invita-
tions were printed, balloons, par-
ty hats, and bottles of champagne
were ordered. A disc jockey was
hired to make the evening com-
plete. Tickets were available, from
each League member for $25.00,
per person. During the afternoon
of the gala, they began decorating
the Warriners home with stream-
ers, ribbons, balloons, flower ar-
rangements, and other festive de-
cor.


As the party began, it soon
became obvious the gala would
be a huge' success The guests,

ened to five innings, instead of the
normal seven innings.

Wayne Summers, who eventually
scored on a passed ball. Ryan
Yeager walked and was singled in
by Jarred: Patterson.
In the top of the, second
inning, the Sharks scored three
runs on two hits, two walks, and
two players were hit by a pitch.
Wewa scored its only run in
-, the bottom of the last inning after
Tripp Atchison singled and scored
on Lee Linton's double.

two and one-third innings and

Interest to Kiwanis


The internet has come to Port

members received a demonstra-
tion of how it works Tuesday at
their regular meeting.
SRick Lamberson who has pio-
neered "Gulf On Line"' for Gulf
and Franklin Counties presided
over the demonstration, which
showed examples of how local,
businesses have utilized the offer-
ings of the web. especially real es-
tate firms and those who offer
services to visitors to the area.
Lamnberson said approximate-
ly 70 "customers" in Gulf and
Franklin Counties are currently
-using the internet to publicize
their business and services.

BEST FT FOT FORWARD'
By Dr. Stephen J. Gross, Podiatrist


Diabetics And Foot Ulcers
Among conditions that affect
many people with diabetes are
.foot ulcers. They resemble small
craters with a reddish outline and
often form on thballof the foot
.or under the big toe. They may be
:caused by poor circulation, Insuf-
.flcient natural cushioning, abnor-
:mal pressure points or other con-
-ditions. Ulcers 'that develop on
.the sides of the foot may be
traced to shoes that fit poorly.
(.Foot ulcers call for podiatric
treatment, even if there is no
pain. They might become infect-
ed, leading to complications.


Many foot ul- .
cers can be l
healed by pre- .'. -
scribed medica-
lions. In some "A.j
cases, the podl-
atrist prescribes an orthotic in-
sert that relieves the pressure
that causes or worsens foot ul-
cers. The orthotic Insert is custo-
mized to fit oot contours and re-
distribute pressure.

reational facilities and points of
interest for those who happen to
be 'surfing' it for such informa-
tion.
"Gulf On Line" provides infor-
mation about recreation, weather
conditions [including the current
three day forecasts] schools, local
news events, yellow page-type
listings of services available in
the area, all.aimed at potential
visitors and vacationers to the vi-
cinity.
Presently, this is the bulk of
the 'traffic' on the internet facili-
ties, and it is growing by leaps
and bounds as more and more
people -are searching for up-to-
date information about locations
they are planning to visit or live
in for a.few, menth&at-the4time.
SLamberson said that present-
ly he and his wife operate the in-
ternet facility here in Port St. Joe
on a part time basis, but he ad-
mitted that he didn't know what
the future would hold in de-
mands on his time.
"What started out as a part,
time hobby is generating into a
very demanding operation," he
said.
He said that presently it is
very inexpensive to be a part of
the internet, but changes are
looming on the horizon which-
threaten to make it more costly to
participate.

Fourth Graders Exploring The
Rocky Mountain Region.
The fourth graders went on a
make-believe excursion last
Wednesday to see what it would
be like to be Lewis and Clark. -
Their goal was to make a map of-'
-their trip through the woods. They .
used a cross-country team trail.
They only took things that had
been taken on the original trip.
They took jerky, water, and gro-
cery sacks to make maps. It was
great. Here is a sample letter to
President Jefferson reporting in.
It is from explorer Tiffany Lewis.
Dear President Jefferson,
The ourney was hard, but we
made "it! At first we traveled
through some plains until wefinal-
ly reached the forest. We hiked
through the forest until we had to .
stop because there, was a tree in
the way. l~~hen .we got past that,
uwe arried at some plains. We
- traveled over high, high moun- 9
tains. Clark almost fell. After we
reached the bottom. we didn't
know it. but we had also reached
an Indian Village. But. luckily no
one was there. We traveled a little
more until we had reached the
Pacific Ocean! Clark and I were so
happy. And yes, I would say it is
safe to live there! ,

Christian School last week and
was given a warm welcome. All
the elementary classes performed
songs, poems, Bible verses, fluta-

Monday morning, and the chorus

musical, "God Is In Control". Rev.
Taylor met with the teachers and
visited in the classrooms before
leaving Wednesday to go back to
the "snow country" in New York.
We all hope and pray that he will
be back soon.
Candy sales are going well,
but there is still more to sell. Each
student is urged to sell 60 bars at
50 cents a bar. Have you eaten
your share?

The Ongoing


Story

Someone has said that
Christianity is always one
generation away from
extinction. There is some
truth to this statement.
However, this leaves out
God. God is still a part of
the process as He touch-


es the hearts of His people.
In Joel 1:3 we find, "Tell your children of it,
and let your children tell their children, and
their children another generation." It becomes
the responsibility of every Christian to share
their faith with the next generation.
Witness is the name of the game. I use this
analogy because we have winners and losers in
games. Someone needs your witness of the
Christ. This person. may be a relative, friend, or
neighbor. I like it when someone tells me the
stories of Jesus. In regard to salvation we need
winners. You and I are part of the ongoing story
as we witness for Christ.

BEACHES WATER SYSTEM/
COUNTY EMPLOYEES-Chairman Peters
discussed an incident which occurred on
December 18th, regarding the Beaches
Water System, stating that Commissioner
Knox directed Gerald Shearer to lock the
power panels into the "on" position (to keep
vandals from turning the pumps off).
Chairman Peters' reported that he received
a call from Chief Administrator Butler
regarding the danger in doing this, and
upon viewing the panels himself, directed
Mr. Shearer not to modify the boxes to lock
them into the "on" position. He stated that
the only problem he saw was the need for a
gate to be installed and the need to place
barbed wire around the top of the fence for
security purposes. Commissioner Knox
reported that he contacted OSHA, and was
informed that the County should have a
gate, barbed wire, a lock-out procedure,
and covers for the pumps (he stated that an


OSHA representative will be here in
January to inspect the system). He stated
that he does not always make the right
decisions, but he was only trying to protect
the County from liability. Safety Director
Nelson reported that gates are needed for
the area, but if the boxes are modified it
transfers liability from the company to the
County. He further stated that the County
does have lock out/tag-out procedures, and
Chairman Peters reported that there are
guards around the shafts. Safety Director


Nelson discussed that he has concerns
about the ladder, caging, and platform, and
repairs are being made. Upon inquiry by
ChairmanPeters, Attorney McFarland con-
firmed that "No Trespassing" signs should
be posted at the gate.
Commissioner Traylor discussed a let-
ter which he requested that Chief
Administrator Butler prepare, outlining the
conversations between Mr. Butler and
Commissioner Knox regarding the Beaches
Water System issue, stating he is opposed
to the language which Commissioner Knox
used in addressing Mr. Butler. After further
discussion by the Board about the letter
and professional conduct, Commissioner
Yeager moved to adopt the following Board
policy. Commissioner Traylor seconded the
motion, and it passed unanimously.
"All staff when given a directive from
any Commissioner which they feel is detri-
mental to the County or is an unsafe prac-
tice, may hold the order until the Board can
meet and make a final decision."
Commissioner Traylor stated that the
County has never had this type of problem;
and he thanked the staff for a great year.
Chairman Peters requested that the letter
be placed on file, and upon inquiry by
Commissioner Knox, Chairman Peters stat-
ed that Commissioner Knox may submit a
rebuttal to the letter at the next Board
meeting. Chairman Peters' further dis-
cussed that each Commissioner needs the
approval of the entire Board to get things
accomplished, an individual Commissioner
cannot take care of County matters on his
own.
There being no.further business, and
upon motion by Commissioner Traylor, sec-
ond by Commissioner Yeager, and unani-
mous vote, the meeting did' then adjourn at
6:01 p.m., E.S.T.

Bass Plates to Go On Sale


Special Plate

To Cost An

Extra $27
SThe Florida Cabinet gave its
final approval for the state's new
bass license plate. Production will
begin immediately, and officials
expect to have them ready for
sale within a few weeks.


The license plate will cost $27
more than standard plates, but
$25 of the proceeds will go into
the State Game Trust Fund.
That's the fund that finances fish
and wildlife conservation, includ-
ing habitat management, law en-
forcement, stocking, access, edu-
cation efforts and research.
The Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission Is launching a
campaign, titled "This One's a
Keeper," to promote the new li-
cense plates, particularly for use


on pickups, boat trailers and rec-
reational vehicles in addition to
automobiles.
Anyone interested in buying
one of the new plates doesn't
have to wait until his current tag
expires before making the switch.
They can pick up a new bass tag
as soon as county tax collectors
can get them on the shelves,
which should be in mid-March.
For more information about
the bass tag, interested persons
can contact the GFC's website at:
http://www.state.fl.us/gfc/
