College Bid Accepted


Construction to Start in About 60 Days; Groundbreaking May 15


This sign marks the spot where the new Gulf/Franklin
Center is to be built.


Along with the spate of bad
news which has come to be the
norm lately, here in Gulf County.
thee comes a welcome piece of
good news for a change.
A low bid submitted for
the construction of the Gulf
Coast Community College
Gulf/Franklin Center here in
Port St. Joe, has been ac-
cepted and construction will
probably get underway with-
in the next 60 days, it was
announced this week by the
chairman of the building
committee, Ralph Roberson.
At a meeting of the commit-
tee, held Tuesday. the second set
of construction bids were received
for the center, with a bid coming
within budget accepted.
The low bid was submitted by
North Bay Construction Company


of Lynn Haven as coming within
the budgeted funds available for
the center's construction. 'This is
great news after initial plans were
rejected because they were over
budget," Roberson stated.
The first set of bidp were all

S The recommended bid will be
presented to the Board of Trus-
tees for approval at their next
board meeting, which will be held


in Port St. Joe on May 15, for its
ratification.
A ground breaking activity
is scheduled for that date

the ceremony.
Roberson further stated, "We
are going to waste very little time
in getting this project going by
having the ground breaking im-
mediately following the board's of-
ficial approval."
'A LONG-TIME DREAM
The construction 'of. a Gulf
Coast College.annex in Port St.
Joe is the realization of a dream


educators have had for a long
time.
Years ago, when the selection
of a site for the present high
school was made, provision was
informally made for the construc-
tion of a future college annex in
the neighborhood of the new high
school complex.
As matters turned out, the
college branch is being built on
property which lies inside the
fork in the road where Garrison
Avenue extension bisects High-
way 98. A,sign has already been
erected on the site and the city df
Port St. Joe is starting a project
which will install water and sewer
to the site, serving all the proper-
ty along the route.

Kennedy Reports On Status of Marina


Says DEP Manager
Reports Permits
Should Be Ready
By End of July
Bill Kennedy, Preble-Rish,
Inc., Consulting Engineers, said
"We should have permits from
DEP by the end of July, at the lat-
est, for construction of the Port
St Joe marina project." His state-
ment came following an. encour-
aging conversation this week with
Bob Kreigal, Department Manager
for DEP's Pensacola office, in
charge of permitting procedures
for the local marina.
Kreigal had overall good com-


ments concerning the project,
according to Kennedy, saying that
he felt the project was very good
and the application packet and
design were impressive.
The 159 boat capacity marina.
has a combination of 120 wet
slips and 39 dry slips-included in
its design. It's slated to be built on
the old Hess Oil tank property
located along St. Joseph Bay on
the south side of First Street.
Current design specifications
are very similar to what Port St.
Joe city commissioners originally
envisioned, but scaled back when
DCA (Department of Community
Affairs) hinted the design sur-
passed the threshold for require-
ment of a D.R.I. (Design of


Regional impact) study. Commis-
sioners decided to return to the
159 slip marina plan after deter-
mining the scaled, back plan
would not be economically feasi-
ble to operate.
DEP has requested more
information on two Issues con-
cerning the marina construction,
shellfish effect and hydrographic
(flushing) information.
Kennedy said both items had
been addressed and response
made to DEP by Preble-Rish and
the project's environmental engi-
neers, Post Buckley. The informa-
tion is currently being evaluated:

County Franchise Fees Face Uphill


Battle; Three Commissioners Skeptical

Proposed to Pay Costs Of Emergency Services in County


During a special meeting of
the Gulf County Commission held
Tuesday afternoon, the board and
several residents and utility com-
pany managers in attendance dis-
cussed the merits of implement-
ing franchise fees in the rural
areas of Gulf County.
Board chairman Nathan
Peters, Jr. resurrected the idea
during another special, meeting
held April 14. He suggested the
fees be considered to help finance
emergency services In the county
(ambulance and fire department).
Peters said he felt every resident
should help pay for providing
emergency service (not just ad
valorem taxpayers).
It appeared as though
approval of the fees would require
an uphill battle by Chairman
Peters, based on the response of
the other three commissioners at
Tuesday's meeting. All three
issued their concerns about initi-
ating the fees.
Providing ambulance service
for the county is, the big ticket
item that sparked the idea of fran-
chise fees. Gulf County currently
budgets approximately $375,000
for the service, but expects to gen-
erate somewherein the neighbor-
hood of $200,000 to $225,000 in
revenues. This will result in a
deficit of $100,000 to $125,000
which will be subsidized through
other county revenues.
Commissioner Warren Yeager
stated he could consider support-
ing the fees If the funds generated
went toward a direct reduction in
ad valorem taxes to county resi-
dents. But, he added, he felt the
timing was bad in light of the eco-
nomic condition of the county
with recent layoffs, shutdown,
and reductions by local industry.
Commissioners Tommy Knox
and John Stanley also voiced
opposition to the idea. Stanley
stated that it wasn't a good time


to be considering additional fees.
Knox added the tax only affected
people in the unincorporated
areas of the county and he didn't.
think that was fair. He also point-
ed out his concern for people on
fixed income.
George Whiting and Layman
Wilkinson also questioned the
board on how the fee would work
if implemented, how funds would
be divided, and whether they
would reduce ad valorem taxes.


Chairman Peters pointed out
that franchise fees were only an
idea at this point and time. A pub-
lic workshop will be held Tuesday,
May 13 at 5:00 p.m. to receive
public comment.
In Other Business
The board also agreed to pay
$30,500 for boat ramp improve-
ments to the Indian Pass boat
ramp and advertise for a consul-
tant to conduct a feasibility study
for Gulf Air Park.

29 Positions Cut From

Phone Company Staff


St. Joe Communications,
Inc., and its subsidiaries, St. Jo-
seph Telephone & Telegraph
Company, The Florala Telephone
Company, Inc., and Gulf Tele-
phone.Company are restructuring
toward a more efficient operations
because of the ever-changing tele-
communications industry. As a
result of this restructuring, the
companies have been forced to


undergo a series of staffing cut-
backs.
During the past several
weeks, 29 positions have been
eliminated. These reductions in
staff affected all four companies
and locations within their service
areas and will allow the company
to operate in a more efficient and
competitive manner, according to
company officials.

Safe Jurists

WITH OUR WORLD BECOMING a more and more danger-
ous place in which to live, we can't afford to aggravate the situa-
tion here in Gulf County; or the remainder of our nation either.
With the beginning of the Timothy McVeigh trial we might
wonder at the safety of the court officials and the jurors. What's
to keep supporters of McVeigh from seeking revenge from the of-
ficers for a possible unfriendly [to McVeigh] verdict, should one
be handed down? What's to keep McVeigh's friends from blowing
up the judge's home; or the attorneys; or the jurors; if the courts
find their favorite terrorist guilty?
What's to prevent others of like thinking from taking the
matter of revenge into their own hands for imagined justice gone
awry?-
COURT AND LAW officials seem to frown on this sort of ac-
tivity and recent action in Gulf County shows just how much
they look down on such activities. With their swift reaction to
even threats, they proved that not only had one better not mess
with Mother Nature, one had better not mess with an officer of
the courts, either. The penalty for such threats-not even ac-
tions, yet-is swift and certain. Mess with a court official, and
your name is "mud". It's off to jail in swift order, or if you hap-
pen to already be in jail, it's time added to your sentence.
When Quinn Christopher Gudger, an inmate of the prison
system of Florida, at Zephyrhills Correctional Institution, ex-
pressed harmful threats, in writing, against Gulf County's Judge
Robert M. Moore, Circuit ,Judge Dedee Costello and attorney
Barbara Sanders, it earned him a Grand Jury indictment ,in
short order. He attracted their attention in no uncertain terms.
We would say our court officials are safe: as safe as anybody
can be in our nation these days
THEN, THERE IS THE case of the early release prisoner
who WAS free in Port St. Joe. You didn't know about him? Nei-
ther did most of the other citizens of our county.
The SherilTs Department did, however.
SAll that person-who hadn't finished serving his sentence-
had to do was "bother" one person, and it was back to prison for
him.
It might be sort of hairy living in this society today, with all
the crazys running loose and all the "rights" criminals seem to,
have. It's comforting to know, however, that law enforcement of-
ficials are keeping an eagle eye out for any detrimental action by
convicted felons who might become a threat to our well-being. '

Lessons Not Learned
THE COUNTY SEEMINGLY HASN'T learned its paving les-
son-taught to it by Capital Asphalt several years ago-very well.
They Insist on awarding the county's scarce paving dollars based
Strictly on an emphasis placed on the low bid and not enough on
performance. Again, it is stuck with the job of forcing a paving
company to perform to the standards the county feels it is pay-
ing-for when it comes to paving performance quality.
All the while, during the:bidding process, they had a firm un-
der contract on anotherjob,: with which they were famillar.They
knew the second firm performed--to-the-county's-expectations,
but were hesitant to award them the construction bid because
tey were a dollar or two higher than the successful bidder.
TO THE COUNTY COMMISSION'S credit, they also felt sort
of skittish about awarding the job to the familiar firm, for very
good reason. You see, a daily newspaper in the area, which shall
remain nameless, had raked them over the coals about giving
supposed preferential treatment to the familiar firm. They had
been guilty of doing business with the firnm,.simply because their
work was satisfactory and they didn't have to look over the sec-
ond firm's shoulder and watch their every move.
They treated the favored firm just as any satisfied customer
does any firm he'/she buys:from. They went back to the firm
time and again because they received value for their dollar,
somethingg the daily newspaper.apparently couldn't understand.
SO, BECAUSE OF A DAILY newspaper's need for some 'sen-
sational' expose'" reporting, Gulf County must go through .the
throes of making a firm perform according to contract. The firm
is already nearly a year late completing the paving job, which
was enough reason to cancel the contract.
SNow the county must go through the agony and time-
consuming task of making sure the firm performs. as best it
can. Now, we ask you, which firm received preferential treat-
ment? .

can bask in the liberal and friend-

right.
And they fire off, salvo after
salvo at the rest of us for trying to
impose our will on them.
Amazingly
Sad, but amazing;
I don't think some of those

all have to wear name tags declar-

I went to a coming out party
once. It was back in the tenth
grade. Trudy Rhinehart's par-'
ents-that's Rhinehart as in The

ding for her sixteenth birthday.
We all got invited up to the big
house to see Trudy "come out.
Leon said she was a debutante
and if her parents were rich
enough these parties were the
rage. I thought she was a Baptist
and I didn't really care to get all
dressed up to see a girl that sat
next to me In English class every-
day.
Trudy missed the first half of
the party. I thought that was pret-
ty rude. And they had some kind
of black fish sauce for you to
spread over your saltine cracker-
worst stuff I've ever tasted! Ricky
Gene spit his into the shrubbery
some idiot had thoughtlessly tried
to grow indoors.
Trudy finally came down the
steps about 9:30. Everybody
turned and applauded. It was Just
Trudy Rhinehart for goodness
sakesl Yogi leaned over and whis-
pered that she didn't: look no;
smaller in that big dress. We all
wondered if those heels were
gonna hold up. The Rhinehart
family ate a little higher off the
hog than most of us and
Trudy upheld her part.
The food was terrible, the
band didn't know The Bridge Is'

Baby Is On The Other Side, the
broad cloth and Revlon couldn't
start to hide all of Trudy's flaws
and Leon wouldn't let me undo,

From Babies Having Babies to Grannies Having Babies B ..


FOR SEVERAL YEARS, now,
we've mounted a, campaign to
combatthe trend of children hav-
ing babies and causing a vexing
social problem. Not only has the
trend caused the schools prob-
lems with attempting to keep
these teen-age mothers from
dropping out of class, but it has
caused a problem of vast propor-
tions, trying to provide what the
children [and the mothers] need
to exist in a reasonably comforta-
ble and healthy state.
We're seen conference after
conference held .trying to solve
this intense social problem.
Churches have scratched
their 'heads' trying to, come up
with a solution about what to do
with this problem of kids having
kids. They've tried youth move-
ments, conferences, programs,
recreation, youth camps, retreats,
lock-ins, symposiums, sports,
preaching, sex education, skits,

a young girl having a baby out of

paigns.
Still the babies continue to
have babies in record numbers.

NOW, WE HAVE another
problem at the other end of
the age spectrum.
We are being saddled with
the phenomenon of grandmothers
having babies!
How can we be successful at
curbing kids from. having babies,
when grandmothers are getting
back into the act?
Medical science is finding a
way for older women to become
reproductive once again. I'm sure
this applies to only a-minority of
the mothers who thought they


were through with the baby bear-
ing business.
Most 'veteran' mothers are
happy to be through with this
business of birthing babies.
That's why women go so crazy
over a little new-born baby some-
one else has had, They can give
them back to their parents after
the cuddling, the ooh-ing and
ahh-ing is all out of their system.
They don't even have to change a
diaper if they don't want to.

IT WAS ANNOUNCED in the
newspapers and over the TV eve-
ning news this past week that,a
63-year-old grandmother had giv-
en birth. That was news!


Whoever heard of a 63-year-
old going the cradle route in her
advanced years? The TV even
went so far as to say, "It has nev-
er been done before".
I'm going to burst that myth's
bubble right now. Sarah, in the
Bible, was in her 90's when she
bore Isaacl It has been done be-
fore, but like the 63-year-old
grandmother, Sarah, too, had as-
sistance.
Sarah also had the future of
a new race riding on her shoul-
ders. The 63-year-old grandmoth-
er is facing a world which is be-
coming too populated. Quite a
difference there.
If all 63-year-old grandmoth-
ers elected to once again begin
bearing children, we'd. be in a
pickle. The young women seem to
be doing a good job of "going forth
to populate the world". There's
been no shortage of babies, ex-
cept the adoptable kind and even
these are in plentiful supply, if
one isn't so choosy as to require a
baby of like nationality to his


adoptive parents.

ONE ARTICLE mused over
the fact that men can continue to
father children at an advanced
age; why not give equal opportu-
nity to the women as well? ,
One wag commented, 'The
parents can then be able to check
the off-spring into kindergarten
and themselves into a nursing
home at the same time."
I wouldn't like to be starting
over with the child-bearing and
rearing bit again. I don't think
Frenchie would either, although I
don't, know for sure. She has
enough to do, maternalistically,
taking care of "Smudgie" and me.
Sometimes we can be a handful,
and' unlike the situation with
great-granddaughter, MaKayla,
she can't hand "Smudgie" and me
over to our mothers once she has
satisfied the longing to 'mother'
something or someone.

I CAN SEE it now, with a lit-


tie. baby in the house. Just after
supper, when we both have set
down to relax and fallen into a
deep, well earned evening nap in
our recliner or on the sofa-in or-
der to condition ourselves for
bedtime. How could we also cope
with a demand for attention from
a hungry child, or. play with, or
answer the dozen and one ques-
tions which can be asked? How
could we referee fights, shout
"leave your brother/sister alone,
get out of that, put'that back, get
your homework, etf., etc., etc."
We would be at a complete
loss when it came to "supporting"
another child by attending ball
games he was involved in, PTA;
meetings with the teacher, chauf-
fering him/her here, there and
yonder.
We'd be a physical, not to
mention nervous, wreck before
you know it.
No, I think we'll Just leave
this newly burgeoning trend of
grannies having babies for some-
one else

Nutrition Program Promotes Health


Of Many Women, Infants and Children


Increased brain size and
higher IQ are proven benefits for
babies on WIC-the special sup-
plemental nutrition program for
women, infants and children.
Numerous studies have
shown the positive effect on the
developmental and physical
health of babies whose mothers
participated in WIC during their
pregnancy, and even for babies
who join the program only after
birth.
In addition to bigger head cir-
cumference (an indication of
brain size) and IQ, participation
in WIC is related to improvements
in prenatal weight gain, higher
birth-weight, improvement in
both maternal and infant diets
and breastfeeding rates.
The WIC program has a
strong commitment to promote
breastfeeding as the optimal way
to feed infants and its successful
breastfeeding promotion has
greatly increased the rates of
breastfeeding among WIC moth-
ers.
Breastfeeding has been
shown to improve cognitive devel-
opment even when controlling for
other factors such as socioeco-
nomic status. The effectiveness of
the WIC program appears to be
from its unique combination of
health and nutrition screening,
nutrition education, referral to
health care and social services,
and provision of specific nutri-
tious foods.
The National Association of
WIC Directors provides leadership
to 88 stateagency programs on a
variety of nutrition and health
issues. Quality nutrition educa-

This Week's Area Fishing Report
For April 0 through April 27
:. Bottom fishing for grouper and snapper has been great when we have
been able to go off shore. Ling have been on the beach and on some of the
shallow wrecks. Jigs and plastic eels have been working, also live bait has
been good-still picking up a few spanish on the beach. I had the plea-
sure of taking one of the most respected captains on the Gulf Coast out
this year. Captain Harold Raffleld. Captain Harold is pictured with a nice
catch of snapper and grouper.
remember Safety First
Check the battery on your EPIRB and make sure it is in date. If you
don't have a EPIRB, it should be the next thing you buy if you plan to do
off shore fishing.

added. "He has demonstrated the


management skills I need on the

background in operating compa-
nies and said his experience will
help maximize the financial
potential of these three operating
units.
"I'm excited arid challenged
by this opportunity to help realize
the full value of these three key
St. Joe assets," Jones said.
"These operating units have a lot
of potential, and I Intend to maxi-
mize: it."

Baseball, softball and track
district play all open this week.
Sneads hosts the 'baseball,
Chattahoochee the softball, and:.
we host the track Friday at the
PSJHS track in St. Joe. It will
take most of Friday afternoon, so
if you're in the area drop by and :
cheer on the Gators. No charge to
view a track meet at this level!
Winners in this meet qualify for
state, so save your money-that
trip does cost us and we'll be
hunting some help!. .
Baseball and softball district,
finals will be either May 1 or May
2. Then sub-regional starts the
following Friday for Class 2A, with
the finals, of the region Tuesday,
May 13 for that trip to state. I
hope the recent weather doesn't
completely disrupt things.
In the midst of all that, foot-
ball spring training will try to
sneak in a few days of practice so
that this spring's jamboree, with
Wewa, Blountstown, Liberty
County, and Port St. Joe, won't be
an error-filled fiasco.
With all these events going
on, and the multi-banquets that
occur this time of year, it is tough
Sfor students to bear down and fin-
ish strong. In fact, it's tough for
everyone, so encourage your stu-
dent to work hard to the end and
not be too distracted by every-
'thing else that's going on!
Judith Birmingham and
Amanda Davis, WHS "Student of
the Week" recipients, will be hon-
ored again at the annual banquet
in Panama City on May 8th.
Hopefully, one will be picked as
"Student of the Year" to receive
the $1,000 scholarship given each
year. Thanks goes to "Buffalo
Rock" for sponsoring this pro-
gram.
Counting today, there's only 3


1/3 weeks of classes left. It'shard
to believe we can squeeze every-
thing that's left (classes, tests,
banquets, playoffs, meetings, etc.)
into 3 1/2 weeks, but we're cer-
tainly going to try. Seems like' we
missed a month somewhere!
Banquets ye't to be held are
'the Sports Banquet (May 10), the
Academic Excellence Banquet:
(May 17), the Band Banquet (May
16), the ROTC'Banquet (May 9)-
did I miss any? .

How's That Again?
When the Harold Dorman
family were at dinner the other
night at a Wewa restaurant, their
youngest son, Andrew, said that
he'd heard that "we're having ai'
'tomato' warning! He, of course e,'
meant 'tornado' warning. Can't
you just see those giant tomatoes
falling out of the sky?
In Linda Whitfield's science
class on Monday, the question"
was posed as to the two ways the

Third grader Bobby Simpson was
quick to say it does it by "rotation

students remarked that a certain

Dear Counselor:
I'm a mother of a teenage son
who is defiant, truant, and hanging
around' thie: w~ongltrowd:- 've trfed ,
to parent him my way. his way, and
out of frustration-No Wayll Things
have gotten out of control since I
contacted the police due to a domes-
tic Incident. I was devastated when'
my child actually raised his hand at
me, and shoved me to the ground.
m.I' hurt that 'it has come.to
this, but desperate because I, don't
Snow how to bring my- teenage sor
home to live under my roof, respect
my rules, and act like a son should.
.Signed. '
I.: A Desperate Mother-
Dear Desperate,
From your letter, it appears that
things between yo.u". and your
teenage son have gotten out of con-
trol. Aside from the fact that some
teenagers assert themselves by
making some irresponsible decl- i
sions, like cutting classes, associat-
ing with the wrong peers, and'beinig
defiant to parent directives, this age
is frustrating to all parents.
However. when these behav\ors
escalate into a physical assault, the,
child has overstepped boundaries.
Parenting is an extremely diffl-,
cult role. You want to be flexible.at
times, however, the structure and
:rules for your child need to be
established 'with consistency and
adherence to these rules. It seems
that when children become
teenagers, .parents sometimes
become lax (allowing the child some.
autonomy). Some children interpret
this, leniency as permission f.o defy
them. -
Upon defiance of these rules, it
is imperative that the consequences
of breaking the rules'be. followed
through by the'parent. When :the
parent starts to .deviate from these
consequences, the child is given
mixed" messages. Consequently
parental control can be ,lost, espe-
cially when the child is not' being
punished'for defiance at the.time of
occurrence.
Moreover, when; a parent stops
disciplining their child, or rules and
boundaries change (especially."out


of frustration"), the end result can
be problematic for both parties.
Since there has been a com-
.plere 'violaft'pn" of'yohr'u-r les, it is
strongly suggested that you reestab-
: lish the rules and 'boundaries for
:your child before he returns home.
.These rules should be made with
"the understanding that both of your
~' needs are to be met with mutual
respect.'
': However, the ,child should be
Reminded that parental decisions
Share made for the child's well being.
'Teenagers can be given some lee-
way to make decisions, however.
they cannot be allowed to blatant-
ly defy the rules without repercus-
sions.
It is strongly recommended
'that communication be opened to
-address the issues which lead up
to the domestic incident, however.
inform him that any physical
Abuse is not going to be tolerated.
and law enforcement can become
involved resulting in legal interven-
tion.
S, It is understandable that you
are "feeling betrayed and angry",-
due to the incident. These feelings
need to be explored and discussed.
It appears that at this juncture,
sincee you are questioning your
parenting ability and feel that
"things have gotten out of control,"
family counseling Is advisable.
Both parties appear to have a lot of
-issues, which need resolution and
Swvhich should be handled by a pro-
'fessional. Contact the clinic to help
you further.' .
Sincerely.

Davis Deployed for Six

Months on USS Kearsarge


Navy Airman William L.
Davis, son of Aurellia A. Beasley
of Wewahltchka, has departed on
a six-month deployment aboard
the multipurpose amphibious
assault ship USS Kearsarge.
Originally scheduled to
depart at the end of April, Davis'
ship was ordered by the Secretary
of Defense to leave two weeks
early to relieve the USS Nassau
and to endure a continuous pres-
ence of forces capable of conduct-
ing non-combatant evacuation
operations in Zaire, Africa.
Davis is one of more than
3,000 sailors and marines aboard
the ship who departed Norfolk
early to replace the USS Nassau,
which has been forward deployed'
to the Mediterranean Sea and the
Southern Atlantic since Novem-
ber.
Davis' ship is the command
ship for the USS Kearsarge ARC,
which includes the amphibious
transport dock USS Ponce, the
dock landing ship USS Carter
Hall and the 22nd Marine
Expeditionary Unit (MEU).
Amphibious assault ships,
like USS Kearsarge, are the pri-
mary ships used for assault oper-
atlions of marine expeditionary
units. Transporting fully equip- ~0y
ped marine assault troops, Davis'
ship is capable of providing a
rapid buildup of combat power to
support assaults from the sea
against positions ashore.

Before the deployment, Davis'
ship along with the rest of the
ARG and the USS John F. Ken-
nedy Battle Group, prepared for
the deployment by participating
in a joint task force exercise off
the Eastern seaboard of the
United States that involved more
than 15,000 military personnel
from the United States. He joined
the Navy in October 1995.

Fla. Farm Facts
Although called "Irish," the
potato is not native to Ireland but
to the Americas. The potato was
first cultivated in the Andes
Mountains of South America, and
was introduced to Spain between
1550 and 1570. How and when it
came to reland is uncertain. The


potato appears to have gotten its
start in the U.S. around 1720.
