FIFTY-NINTH YEAR, NUMBER 34


New Chief


of Police


Welcomed

To Community
Upon arrival, Port St. Joe
Police Chief Jay Leffert has
received a warm welcome from
the citizens of Port St. Joe. He has
experienced first-hand the many
advantages of small-town living.
When Chief Leffert went to
close on the purchase of his new
home, he was impressed how "a
snag" was handled. He stated, "If
) this would have happened back in
Orlando it would have lengthened
the closing process, due to all the
red tape and verifications need-
ed."
The chief has also received
the traditional southern greet-
ing--delicious meals while his
wife, the family cook, is tying up
business in their former home-
town of Winter Park, where they
were residents for thirty years.
Chief Leffert spent his first
day in the line of duty with the
retiring Chief "Bucky" Richter and
Lt. James Hersey touring and
meeting the community. Chief
Leffert stands 6 foot 4 inches and
has a recent military haircut so
he Is not easily missed.
Prior to his move, he had just
returned from a tour in the
Nevada desert for the United
States Air Force Reserve. In the
USAF Reserve he serves as a Chief
Master Sergeant, with an E-9
rank.

Wewahitchka Will Vote On Three Franchises


Gas, Telephone
The City of Wewahitchka has
set up three franchise elections to
be held at the time of the regular
election, September, 1997. Sever-
al details still must be worked
out; one being the length of the
franchise for the three different
utilities to be voted on.
Approval of a franchise will
be upcoming with St. Joe Natural
Gas, Inc. The company is in the
process of extending natural gas
to the city and is, already serving
a large portion. The Commission
is in the process of discussing the
length of term for the utility, even


and Cablevision All'to Face Voters'Decision During September


though it approved offering of the
franchise at its last meeting.
Monday, April 14.
Also up for approval by the
voters is a new franchise for St.
Joe Telecommunications. Tele-
phone service is non-regulated in
Florida now, but the city charter
calls for a franchise and the com-
mission desires for the utility to
be tied down with an operating
contract, or a franchise.
A third franchise up for ap-
proval in September, will be a
working agreement with the cable


television company, which cur-
rently serves the city. The cablevi-
sion franchise expires this month
and the commission is already,in
discussion with cable officials on
a new working agreement.
This franchise, also, will be
non-exclusive with the vote being
held to get approval of the citi-
zens for a working agreement,
rather than arbitrarily approving
or disapproving by the commis-
sion alone.
A planning board meeting,
-set for April 21, was held to try
and eliminate misunderstandings


which exist in the present land-
use plans.
When the first document was
.drawn up, it was thought that the
land-use section allowed a mix-
ture of business/residential use
along both highways through the
city. Since several requests have
been filed to change the designa-
tion on several parcels, particu-
larly along Highway 71, it was
found the mixed land use desig-
nation doesn't exist. The commis-
sion will attempt to rectify this
provision to keep from having to
go through the process of chang-
ing them, parcel by parcel.


Portions of County's $3


Action by 'the Gulf County
Commission during Tuesday
evening's regular board meeting
will in effect freeze $300,000 of
payment to Panhandle Grading
and Paving until road density
tests are furnished to the county's
engineers and approved.
Several roads throughout the
county have had density informa-
tion requested from the contrac-
tor by;Preble-Rish Inc., Consult-
ing Engineers. As of Tuesday's
board meeting, the information
had not been, furnished by
Panhandle, according to Bill
Kennedy (Preble-Rish).
Panhandle is mopping up the
final stages of the $3 million dol-
lar county road paving contract
and has requested final payment
of $300,000.
Commissioner John Stanley
mentioned during the board
meeting that problems on some
roads in his district had not been '
corrected to date. He said two of
those roads, Honey Hill Road and
Cochran Road, were "falling
apart" in some places.
Road density data on these
and other roads in the county
either has not been furnished to
the county or the results are
questionable, according to a letter
to Panhandle from David
Kennedy, inspector for Preble-
Rish. He also recommended fur-
ther payments be withheld until
all test results are turned in and
deemed satisfactory.
KM.T Construction

Wins Water Job
Commissioner Tommy Knox
told the board that work should
begin on replacing the Highland
View water system within 10
days.
K.M.T. Construction, of Lynr
Haven, was the successful bidder
on the project with a bid of
$420,894.00. They received
approval from the board during
Tuesday's meeting to sub-con-
tract as much as 90% of the water
system's work.
A $600,000 CDBG grant will
fund 'the project which will
include replacement of all water
lines and mains, Including water
meters' for the aging system.
According to Knox, all work will
be done around the existing water
system until completed, then
houses will be hooked up to the
new meters so as not to interrupt
water service during construction.
Oppose DEP Fee Increases
Commissioner Warren Yeager,
filling in as chairman for Nathan
Peters, Jr. who was away attend-
ing the National Hurricane
Conference, alerted the board to a
proposal by DEP to increase con-
struction permit fees forward of
the coastal construction setback
lines. Yeager said the proposal
could increase fees from $660 up

Looking Good!


PORT ST. JOE'S Reid Avenue construction work is coming
right along. It's proceeding ahead of schedule and almost with-
out a hitch. It's causing some people a little inconvenience, but
that was expected, going in. Almost to a man, people are adding
the phrase, 'Won't it look nice when the work is finished", to
Their prognostications as to when the work will be completed.
People of the city are anxiously awaiting completion of the
work with extreme patience. Even the Friday night rain of a
couple of weeks ago, which caused some flooding of business
houses on Reid Avenue, is being taken in stride. The one-way
slow traffic on the street is considered better than nothing and
the loss of parking spaces, temporarily, is being absorbed with-
out much griping on the part of merchants or customers.
PEOPLE IN THE CITY recognize that the contractor isn't
wasting any time; his crews are on the job all day every day, at-
tempting to complete the job as rapidly as possible and this is
satisfying almost all the people involved.
A good rapport of conversation goes on between the contrac-
tor's workers and citizens, walking on their makeshift passage-
ways on the street. People get ;a running commentary of what
the workers are doing in a patient and cheerful voice and that
means a lot to local people.
It's been six weeks of construction now, and the work has
shifted to the other side of the street. This doesn't mean that the
job is half done, but it's nearly so. That seems like some sort of
record to us, being through with one side of the street to the
point where traffic can be turned on it.
THE PATIENT CITIZENS ARE correct in their mollification.:
The street will look nice and it will be handsome and serviceable
when it is finished. It will be worth waiting for.
The only activity to which the street will not be friendly, is
the roller-blade traffic which is now such a nuisance and such a
danger to, the pedestrians. The sidewalk inserts will make that
particular activity even more dangerous to the roller-bladers.
Before the work began, the bike riders and roller-blade riders
made it an adventure trying to get in and out of a store building
without getting hit with a body block by some young person on a
pair of the skates or on a bicycle. It was a dangerous situation,
not t'ospeak of being against the law.
The newly refurbished street will not only be extremely'miore
handsome, but it will be pedestrian friendly .. and discourag-
ing to bikers and skaters.



Get Used to "850"
T.HE SQUEAKY WHEEL STILL gets the grease. Jacksonville
has proven that old adage to still be true in the case of the "hot
area code number". When the matter of getting an additional
area code number or two in the state of Florida first came to
light back in January, the Public Service Commission thought
about that section of the state which needed relief the most. Af-
ter all, it didn't make good sense to make two changes when one
would do it.
They settled the question back in January, to the consterna-
tion C.Jacksonvllle Interests and to the delight of the Panhandle
intents. The new number wouldn't lie still; or at least the Jack-
sonville interests wouldn't allow the matter to be settled to the
PSC's satisfaction.
They squeaked their wheel
PANHANDLE INTERESTS WENT to bed Wednesday night,
secure in the belief that their area code number-904-was safe.
only to awaken Thursday morning with a start; the Panhandle's
number had been snatched away and replaced with another, for-
eign-sounding number, 850.
The entire Panhandle had gore complacently along, secure
in the belief that their area code was safe, since the original deci-
sion in January. "Let Jacksonville worry about the change-over."
was the battle cry from the 'handle. "WVe're secure inside the 904
cocoon," or so we thought.
SJacksonville citizens continued to moan and groan and com-
mit gnashing of teeth, issuing all kind of dire predictions and
threats, from January until this week, when they prevailed.
ALL IS NOT LOST. Even though the deadline for changing
area .code numbers has been set for June 30, this year: it will
probably be extended. In the meantime, we can take a lesson
from Jacksonville's page out of the book of experience and re-
member that the wheel which squeaks the loudest gets the
grease first.


I borrowed some money last
week. It near 'bout killed me. You
have to pay that stuff back.
'Course, the nice, elderly lady at'

And I know I was her favorite. We
were all pleased when she was

When a Person's Memory Is Worse Than Mine


..That's Bad


ONE OF THE problems one
faces when he/she reaches an
advanced age is that it is a chore
to remember hiames, dates, oc-
currences, etc. At least, if one can
recall them immediately, it is
usually his version of the activity;
not necessarily .the facts as they
actually happened.
I'm waiting with bated breath
for this to happen to me. I know
the condition is coming... when
I begin to get old.
There are those who accuse
me of being afflicted with this
condition at the present time, but
I know these accusations come
from those who are Jealous of my
sharp-as-a-tack memory for
dates, names and happenings.
Why Just the other day I was
the only one who remembered
Just where I had put my car keys.
To everyone else, they were lost.
They were. right where I had left
them,.. in my pocket.

FURTHER PROOF that one


ETAOIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


doesn't necessarily forget things
when he/she begins to get old
was hammered out in stone just
a couple of weeks ago.
I went to Marianna with Dr.
Bob King to participate in the
forming of the new Chipola River
protection, committee. Well, you
probably know what happened all
the way there and back; Bob
talked!
If he ever accuses me of not
being able to remember anything
we were talking about, let the
onus fall right back on him,
where it belongs.
Bob couldn't remember any-
thing!


Of course, he is farther along
toward old age than I am, so I
guess he has a better excuse not
to remember certain things than
I. He couldn't even remember the
:name of the town in Georgia
where they filmed the TV series,
"In the Heat of the Night". He tried
all the way from Altha to home to
remember the name of that town.
I couldn't imagine how he
could forget, since his wife was
born and reared not 50 miles
from it. That was the leading triv-
ia question of the trip home.

EVERY 10 MINUTES or so,
'we would come back to that ques-
tion, "Just what was the name of


i that town. You know, it's about
S30 or 40 miles east of Atlanta."
S It didn't matter that half the
Towns in Georgia are "about-30 or
40 miles [east, west, north, or
south] of Atlanta".
I couldn't remember it either,
and I have a niece and nephew
who live not 20 miles from the
town.
I was closer to remembering
the name than Bob was, however.
I told him, 'You know,. it's the
same town in Georgia where
Ralph Walton came from." I knew
and remembered that much fac-
tual information.
We rode on, remembering
this fact and that fact-or, I was
remembering this fact and that
fact. Bob did remember his first
night in Port St. Joe and where
he spent it. He did remember that
he was a bachelor in those days.
He did remember that he met his
wife Janet here. He did remember
that she was a school teacher at
the time.
Beyond that, folks, his memo-


ry was b-a-a-a-dl

I KEPT HAVING to prompt
him on dates when things of im-
portance happened here in Port
St. Joe ... or at least my version
of things that happened in Port
St. Joe.
Then he has the audacity to
come back home and tell it
around that neither of us could
remember anything; that the next
time we go off on a trip together,
he's going to take a third, young-
er party along to keep us correct-
ed on things that happened a
long time ago. [It may be a long
time ago to most of you, but it
seems like just yesterday to me .
Sand Bobl]
There's one thing wrong with
Bob's plan to carry a younger per-
son along to remember things. If
we ever find someone who will
suffer through a trip with the
both of us, he/she won't know
about the happenings we are
talking about, anyhow. They will
be useless, so far as providing


verification for either one of us.

WE SHOULDN'T need any
prompting about such happen-
ings as:
*The year the government
placed sea planes in the bay with
bombs under each wing, to ward
off Nazi submarine attacks.
*The aircraft spotting tower
which stood square in the middle
of what was later to become Wil-
liams Avenue, to' spot enemy
planes during the big war.
*Swimming 'ntkkid' at Pat-
ton's Bayou where it now crosses
Monument Avenue [there were no
houses in the vicinity, nor a
bridge across the bayou, then].
and a host of other bits of
important memorabilia we talked
about.
But to prove that my memory
isn't completely gone, I eventually I
remembered the name of the
Georgia town.
I called old Bob early the next
morning and just said one word'
to him-"Covingtonl"

line may be so fine and in such

When fractured, and for

location of the problem; and

State Park Declares War On Its Coyote Population

"Shoot on Sight" Verdict Adopted by Management. Crime Committed? Destroying Nest of Sea Turtles, Eating the Eggs


For several years, now, area farmers and
rural dwellers have been complaining about the
growing presence of coyotes in the Panhandle
of Florida. Citizens have filed numerous com-
plaints, wanting something done about the
growing nuisance. But the wily coyote seems to
resist any attempts at controlling its presence.
The coyote leads a secretive existence and
preys on young and infirm farm animals for its
food. Farm animals such as chickens, young
.pigs, calves; and even crops such as watermel-
ons; cantaloupes, etc., are victims of "Mr. Wily
Coyote" and his gourmet tastes.
The coyote population which resides in Gulf
County has long been a nuisance to suburban
dwellers and their quiet, country existence.
Their complaints about the animals have fallen
on deaf ears; or ears which can't figure out how'
to counteract the pests, short of killing them.
The big problem with killing them is, the ani-
mals tend to keep away from humans.
COYOTES MAY HAVE DONE
THE WRONG THING
But, the animals may have let their taste
buds do them in, this time. They seem to have
acquired a yen for turtle eggs. Everyone knows
the turtle is a protected species everyone
but the coyote, that is; and his affinity for the
. delectable eggs has caused the state park peo-
ple to declare war on him, deciding, of all


things, to actively hunt the animals down and
shoot them.
In a pubic meeting, held in the Port St. Joe
branch of the public library last Friday evening.
park officials of St. Joseph Peninsula State
Park, essentially outlined tactics-fatal tactics-
-they were going to take against the coyote to
keep them from molesting its sea turtle nests.
The audience was. largely approving of the re-
vealed plans for the' coyotes' eventual demise,
and wondered if the tactics couldn't be per-
formed on an area larger than just the state
park.
PARK OFFICIALS TO TAKE SERIOUS
STEPS AT ERADICATION
Anne Harvey, park manager; Bruce Leland,
Department of Agriculture, which has jurisdic-
tion over the park, and John Berte, Environ-
mental Specialist with the park service, ex-
plained to their listeners just how they were
going to go about eradicating the 10 square
miles of wilderness of the beasts. This area, es-
sentially, makes up the tip of St. Joseph's Pe-
ninsula.
The wilderness portion of the park and its
stretch of beach along the Gulf of Mexico, is a
favorite nesting place for sea turtles. The log-
gerhead, green and leatherback species of tur-
tles have been predominant along this stretch
of beachfront and last year it proved to be one


of the most important nesting areas along the
entire Gulf Coast of Northwest Florida. Envi-
ronmentalists, including the park service, are'
extremely interested in protecting and preserv-
ing their nesting site, making it a safe spot for
turtles to lay their eggs and hatch little ones.
The coyotes 'are interested in the same site
as a place where they can come for a sea turtle
egg dinner!
The wily animals were introduced to this
area several years ago by hunters who wished
to substitute them for foxes. The coyotes, natu-
rally began to breed and expand their popula-
tion, which called for more expanded areas to
forage for food. Eventually the animals discov-
ered the beaches and their caches of delicious
turtle eggs, which may be their undoing.
THREE PRONGED ATTACK
Bruce Leland explained, in detail, just how
the park service would go about ridding its 10
square miles of the animals.
''We intend to hunt them down and shoot
, them," Leland said. In addition the Department
of Agriculture representative said they would
hunt out dens of pups and destroy them; hu-
manely, of course.
S"It's coming up on the whelping season for
coyotes and a major part of our operation will
be searching out their dens," Leland said.


"Most of our hunting will be done at night when
the adult coyote is out foraging for food."
The hunters will utilize traps in their war
on the coyote, as well as a gun. "We intend to
use soft-tread traps, lightly buried in the sand
to trap the animals as well," Leland said. "The
traps will be of a variety that will not trip under
the tread of a lighter animal, such as racoons,
skunks and other smaller animals," Leland ex-
plained.
A concentrated attack will be taken by the
park service personnel, in order to rid park
acreage of the pest. Periodic inspections will be
conducted to keep the population of egg preda-
tors down. 'We will launch new, concentrated
actions against the coyotes, if its presence is
detected as recovering again," the speaker said.
POPULATION UNKNOWN
The number of coyotes living on the penin-
sula is unknown, park service representatives
pointed out. "It could be as few animals as one
per square mile, or as many as five. We just
don't know. But we do know there is enough to
do considerable damage to the turtle egg
nests," Leland remarked.
The park service directors are determined
to show the coyote it isn't nice to mess with
Mother Nature, when Mother Nature is direct-
ing so many endangered sea turtles to the park
beaches in the' early summer to lay their eggs.

Pet Therapy


In 1991, as a member of
STherapy Dogs, Inc.. Anne Hudson
began visiting nursing homes,
with her registered therapy dog,
Lacey r a golden retriever. Hudson
was then nominated to be a
tester/obserer:for this organiza-
tion, granting hei authority to
advise and test canine/human
candidates for membership. Upon
their,pass, she then observes the
, teams for a period of timnein facil-
ities (nursing homes, hospitals,
schools, Alzheimer's centers, and,
such) to help with further training
or socialization problems.
In 1993, she founded a
Georgia based non-profit corpora-
tion, Canine Outreach, Inc., for
S the purpose of bringing registered
therapy dogs from nationally rec-
ognized organizations to work
together in one group. The organi-
zation grew quickly and now has
its own testing procedures and
insures its members. Within two
years the corporation was regu-
larly Involved in pet therapy with
13 nursing homes, a facility for
abused children, one or two hos-
pitals occasionally, and local
schools at the kindergarten level.
Mrs. Hudson became a char-
ter member of the Association of
Pet Dog Trainers, an organization
for the promotion of positive and
humane pet d6g training and the
education of trainers. She con-
ducted seminars from 1994-95


for potential therapy dog teams in
the Atlanta area.
Last year, when her husband
retired, they moved from
Peachtree City, Georgia to their
beach home in the Port St. Joe
area. Presently, under the name
FunPups, Mrs. Hudson offers pri-
vate and class instruction to own-

When it comes to convenient,
versatile 'fresh meat products,
nothing beats ground beef.
Representing about 40 percent of
all beef sold by volume, ground
beef' is by far the largest single
meat product marketed today. In
fact, hamburgers and cheese-
burgers alone represent more
than 75 percent of all away-from-
'home beef eating occasions.
S, Butmany other beef products
aren't as readily associated with
convenience, according to Polly
Golden, Executive Director of the
Florida Beef Council. That's
channg, though, thanks to new
beef product development efforts
,being funded In part by Gulf
County beef producers through
their $1-per-head checkoff Invest-
ments on animals they market.
These new efforts are part of a
program that encourages the
development of new product ideas
and innovative ways of marketing
beef, says Golden. Many of the,
efforts Involve enhancing the
value of beef cuts that traditional-
ly bring lower prices at the meat
case, such' as the chuck and
round, turning them Into prod-
ucts that would have unique con-
sumer appeal.
Roasts are a beef product that
has sometimes been assigned an
"old fashioned" label by con-
sumers. A new rotisserie beef
product Is being developed,
though, that will compete with
rotisserie chicken In supermar-
kets and restaurants, giving the
beef roast a new. more contempo-
rary image, says Golden.
"Many consumers love the
taste of roast, but don't want to be
bothered with the cooking and
preparation needed." according to
Golden. "With this product, a
supermarket customer could take
home a pre-cooked roast, open a
bag of pre-made salad, microwave
some potatoes and have a quick
meal for the family in no time."
Another new beef product in
development will demonstrate
that beef is not Just for dinner or
lunch anymore. A new product
tentatively called BeefeatasrT Is
targeting the enormous appetizer
market, at the same time adding

Mexico Beach July Fourth Fund Drive on Track


The Mexico Beach Fund Drive
for the upcoming Independence
Day celebration is on track
according to Dana Angerer, com-
mittee chairperson. So far, a little
over $5,000 has been collected
toward a $12,500 goal.
The committee is planning a
gala celebration along the city's
canal park, with food and bever-
age booths and plenty of activities
for children and adults alike. The
day will begin with a sailing regat-
ta sponsored by the city mayor,
\Garry Gaddis, and officially


dubbed, "The Mexico City Annual
Mayor's Cup Regatta." Since this
is not a "class" regatta, anyone
with a sailboat, regardless of size,
will be allowed to enter and com-
pete for the Mayor's Cup. Among
the varied activities, the commit-
tee is planning fishing, sand
sculpture, and watermelon eating
contests. The city's recent acqui-
sition, its new fire fighting vehicle,
will be on display, and a band is
scheduled to play throughout the'
afternoon for everyone's listening
pleasure, as well as those dis-
posed to dancing in the streets!


The day's celebration will be,
capped off by a professional fire-
works display off the city pier.
Classic Fireworks, of Mont-
gomery, Alabama, assured the
planning committee that it will be
a spectacular show, in keeping
with the spirit of old time 4th of
July celebrations.
The committee is looking for
additional sponsors for this event
(those donating .$250 or more
towards the event) So far, spon-
sors include: The Driftwood Inn,
The Fish House Restaurant, At


Your Service Construction Co.,
Parker Realty, Mexico Beach
Marina, Toucan's, Citizens Feder-
al Bank, J. Edmund Corry,
Sharon's Cafe and the City of
Mexico Beach..
In addition, six private citi-
zens and two businesses have
donated $100 or more and have
been designated "patrons." If you
would like to donate, please send
your check or money order to:

Academic Spotlight!
I'm always glad to promote
good news, especially if it involves.
WHS or WHS students. So it is
with a great deal of pleasure that
I announce that Amanda Davis,
an outstanding WHS senior schol-
ar-athlete, has been selected to
the prestigious Florida High
School Activities Association
Academic All-State team. Details
of her selection are available in a
separate article in. The Star.
Also in this week's edition are
details on Charlie Cole's State
Science Fair accomplishments.
Also a senior, Charlie has brought
a lot of favorable attention to Gulf
County's schools, especially WHS
through his science fair, success
for several years. Charlie's'also an
excellent musician who intends to
attend Stetson University in the
fall, assisted by a music scholar-
ship.
Look, for these two articles,
please-since'we otben receive
unfavorable publicity and tend to
deal mostly with problems that
surface, I know you'll enjoy these
two students' success as much as
I have.
The academic success stories
are also great to report since it
seems we usually dwell on athlet-


ics. There's just so much sports to'
report that it tends to dominate
the space. Softball is dominating
the sports these days, as our girls
still push toward an undefeated
season. Of course, the season'.
doesn't mean success in the play-
offs when the competition sud-
denly becomes everyday'tough
and the pressure mounts.

SEVENTH GRADE TRIP To
GULF COAST.
On Wednesday, April 16, 'the
seventh graders went on a field
trip to Gulf Coast Community
College. They took a very good
tour of the library, and they were
taught many things. They were
shown how to find what they were
looking for in a library, as well as
how to find a book in any library
in the state of Florida, without
even visiting that library.
The seventh graders also took
a tour of the swimming pool,.dis-
cussed the courses offered at Gulf
Coast, and talked about financial
aid for college. The tour of Gulf
Coast Community College was
great, but the best part of the day
was lunch at Under the Oaks.

improve the environment and
save the earth in which we live.
Tommy Tree was a visual helper
he used to emphasis the impor-
tance of trees to our everyday
lives and the reason we need to
keep protecting our earth.
Some products were dis-
played that are made with by-
products made at Arizona
Chemical, such as glue and rosin.
Upon concluding the program,
the company presented each stu-
dent with an oak tree seedling to
plant in honor of Earth Day.
We would like to thank Mr.
Newton, Mr. Lawrence, Mr.

Visitation Minister. First functions in an orderly
United Methodist Church fashion we need law offi-

and correction officers. These are necessary,
and we should show our appreciation to those
who perform these duties for us.
Wouldn't it be nice if these people were not
needed because we live in a perfect world.
However, we don't live in a perfect world, there-
fore they are very important people.
Law officers are those people who have cho-
