Workshop Mutual Concerns

Animal Control, Extending Water Service Discussed


Gulf County commissioners
and the City of Wewahltchka held
a workshop session prior to
Tuesday's regularly scheduled
meeting to discuss animal con-
trol, furnishing water to the coun-
ty's planned Industrial park and
the city's fire department budget.
The two parties had been try-
ing to get together for quite some
time to hash out concerns over
animal control but once they)
finally got together there didn't
seem to be a whole lot left to work
out.
City Manager Donald Min-


Two Water Projects

Progress. In Area -

Two separate water supply projects are progressing in
the Port St. Joe area; one in Highland View under the su-
pervision of the County Commission and the other in the
Ward Ridge area under the supervision of the City of Port
St. Joe.
The Highland View project is changing out all piping
which was originally installed In that system some 30
.years ago. The project is being financed by a $600,000
CDBG block grant. KMTV Inc., Construction has the job
and has sub-contracted it to Southeastern Mechanical of
Port St. Joe. In the photo above, a section of pipe is be-
ing laid by workmen. Commissioner Tommy Knox says
the contractors are on schedule with the job.
In the photo at right, LSLT Chutchwell, Inc., workers
are putting down a dewatering system in preparation to
digging a trench to lay pipe. They are installing a half-
million-dollar water and sewer project which will serve
all of Ward Ridge and the new Gulf Coast Community
College Annex.


According to Bill Cranford,
president of the Mexico Beach Ar-
tificial Reef Association, at 9:00
4, (CT) Wednesday morning, the
committee set: out to start build-
ing three artificial reefs off Mexico
Beach.
The association has spent the
past two mohs working on this
project and h:s raised $10,000 in
the last 30 dass in order to estab-
lish the artificial reefs.
Wednesday morning the
group carried' 30 grouper huts
but to the location of the reefs.
The grouper 'huts ate used to en-
courage the growth of smaller fish
and to protect them. They also
will encourage- larger size fish to
stay .in the area of the reef look-
'ing for a meal, which encourages
people to fish this area..
With the 30 grouper huts the
association has, 'they can create
three reef sites with 10 huts at
each site. The reefs will be located
six miles/2700 off the Mexdco
Beach Canal. The area will be one
mile by two miles and will be in
approximately: 65 feet of water.
The large reef size will allow for
the construction of numerous
other small reef sites.
The Mexico Beach Artificial
Reef AAsociation has been grant-
ed $25,000 by the state and they
also hope, to raise another
$10,000 'to go with that amount
in order to create more reefs.
The association was formed


to replace the, few reefs already
built in Mexico Beach.- Most of
the area's shallow, reefs were
damaged by recent hurricanes


and tropical, storms that have hit
this area; WithW the Increase in
sportfishing, scuba diving, and
boating, there is: a need to build,

had rebuilt their existing animal,
'shelter and made several
improvements to bring it up to
snuff.

Commissioner Phillip Gaskin 'fol-
.jilowed with an offer to house all
j animals picked up in the north
- end of the county at the city's
facility until the animal control
officer got a full load to carry to

the courthouse.

their efforts to work together to,
resolve the problem. v
Commissioner Johnriy .Stan-.
ley proceeded to the second issue
relating to animal control, the
.building of a county wide' facility.
The board has discussed.
building a county-wide shelter'
hoping to get the cities of'
WVewahitchka and Port St. Joe to
join together with them for joint
funding.
City Commissioner Gaskin
and Mayor Dickens said Wewa
lacked the extra funds to help
build the complex and they .felt
the citizens would be double
taxed having to pay twice for the
same. service people outside the
city were getting.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
noted that money was a key issue
for everyone at this time consider-
ing the economic conditions.
around the county.
The two parties did agree to
get together and work out a cost
for furnishing water to the coun-
ty's planned industrial park. The
complex is to be built south ,,of
Wewa near the intersection of
County Road 381 and Highway
71. '
County Paving Contract
To say the least, the county
board still is not happy with the
Job Panhandle Paving and Asphalt
has done on the $3 million dollar
county road paving project.
It hurt even more for them to
approve final progress payment
($146,000) as recommended by
board attorney Tim.. McFarland
drid Preble-Rish, Inc., Consulting
Engineers' Bill Kennedy. ..
McFarland explained to the
board they needed to "keep their
hands clean" by operating in good
faith and then fall back on the
company's performance bond,
$137,000 retalnage fee and war-
ranty wording written in the con-
tract to force'the company to cor-",
rect the problems.
Commissioners Stanley and
Traylor have stated that the
biggest problem exists on newly
constructed roads. Grass is grow-
ing up through the asphalt and
the road literally falling apart in"
the north end of the county, they -'
have explained to the board.
"Our job is to stay on them till
the problem is resolved." Traylor
surmised. '
Equipment Operation
Board chairman Nathan
Peters, Jr. Instructed the board
attorney. Tim McFarland. .and


union negotiator. Larry Wells, to
evaluate the board's policy and
see if changes needed to be made
concerning who can operate
county equipment.
The question was aired by
Commissioner Stanley, who want-
ed to know why county equipment
operators were not driving county
equipment at a recent auction,
held by Neil Land and Timber,
that the county participated in.
A county employee (Randy
Sasser) that was hired by Neil
Land and Timber to work at the
auction operated county equip-,
ment during the day. The county
also had an equipment operator
(Greg Pickeron) at the. auction
who was paid overtime by them.
Stanley asked Road Depart-
ment Supervisor Bob Lester. and
Commissioner Traylor who autho-
rized Sasser to drive rather than
call another operator.
Traylor explained that he had
volunteered to help at the auction
at no expense to the county and
that he didn't see a problem with
it.
Commissioner Warren Yeager
asked the board attorney if there
were any legal questions or liabil-
ities as far as the county was con-
cerned.
Attorney McFarland ex-
plained that there might be an
issue with the union if Sasser had
been paid by the county at the
Lime but, since the auction was
being conducted by Neil. and he
received pay from them, he didn't
see a problem in this situation.
McFarland suggested the
board consider, policy qn.'equip-
ment operation if they wanted to
clarify the issue.
In Other Business

Don Butler to evaluate an offer
from George Boyer to give the
.county four acres of land, includ-

Phone Company


Stands Chance of

Changing Name
Merger With Two Other Firms Prompts
New Name for First Time for Company
For years-ever since the company was first founded
to provide communications for the Apalachicola North-
ern Railroad-St. Joseph Telephone & Telegraph Compa-
ny has carried that familiar name. Chances are that it
will carry the name for only a short while longer before it
officially changes its title.
The company will petition the Florida Public Service
Commission on July L, asking that its name be formally
changed to GTC, Inc. [Gulf Telephone Company, Inc.)
The firm started with the name St. Joseph Telephone
& Telegraph Company and later acquired the Gulf Tele-
phone Company of Perry and, a few years later, the Flo-
rala Telephone Company of Florala, Ala., and has operat-
ed the three firms as separate corporations for several
years.
With the name change all three firms will operate un-
der one corporation, with headquarters still in Port St.
Joe.
"Nothing will change but the name and the conven-
enice :t will offer us in our operations," Bill Thomas, an
executive with the corporation told The Star Tuesday.
:::The customer will see no difference in either operations
or' rates,' he. continued.
'.It will take the PSC about 60 days to consider St.
Joe's petition before giving or denying permission to af-
fect :the: name change. Thomas went on to say, "If per-
Smisson is granted., it will be just a matter of how quick
we can change the name on our equipment and printed
forms before the new name goes into use."

Frank Pate .

A Hard Act to Follow
NEWLY-INSTALLED MAYOR Johnny Linton expressed, ac-
curately, how most of us who have reason to know. felt about re-
tiring Mayor Frank Pate last Tuesday, when he said. "There will
never be another Frank Pate. If I can do half as good a job dur-
ing my term in office, I'll be satisfied."
Pate's 30 year performance in the office was, without argu-
ment, superb! He was "Mr. Mayor". He guided the city without
thought for his own benefit and with fairness for all its citizens.
He never had an exaggerated opinion of his own importance. In
other words, his ego was'well in check. This, in itself, is unique
among government leaders, and he was a leader non-pareil.
WE CONSIDERED FRANI Pate our personal friend. Heck!
Most of the population of. Gulf County considers him their
friend; and he was a friend. He worked tirelessly for the benefit
of the city, leaving his own business on many occasions to tend
to ours. Not many people would do this. Not many would attend
all the meetings for the city's benefit which he attended. Not
many would be available fori the public functions he made him-
self available for. Whether It was to cut a ribbon for a new busi-
ness or sign a proclamation for some inconsequential event, he
was available. No event was considered inconsequential by him.
He put his own time aside and tended to city functions and
business first. All other personal activities came second.
COMMISSIONER BILL WOOD remarked as Pate vacated his
office Tuesday night, '"When he made a decision. It was for the
best interest of the citizens of Port St. Joe." Pate considered the
best interests of Port St. Joe first and foremost. That was the
measuring stick for all his actions.
Some people couldn't see it at the time, but. then. some peo-
ple couldn't see that the actions of the duPont company was
good for the people of Port St. Joe for the 60 years they were in
control of industry here. Some still don't.
But just ask those who have lost their jobs recently if they
believe it or not.
IT'S TRUE THAT WE'LL never have a man like Frank Pate
at the head of our city government again. Those who follow in
his footsteps will do their best, have the good of the city at heart
just as.much, but they will have to put forth super-human effort
to match up to Pate's performance and accomplishments for the
past 30 years.
Pate set the hallmark, the high water mark, for his succes-
sors to try for. We sincerely hope they do meet the challenge and
come up to the standard he has set.



Nothing New

IT IS NOTHING NEW for the Gulf County School Board to
have money problems. It is nothing new for any school district in
the state of Florida to have money problems. Franklin County
also has them. Bay county likewise. Calhoun and Liberty all
have money problems. Ironically. Gulf County is in good compa-
ny when they came up with the announcement that there is a
shortage of money in its school district.
It's nothing new. There have always been money problems In
the Gulf County School district. There were money problems in
the district over 50 years ago, when this writer was In school ...
and every year in between. Nothing has changed.
IT WASN'T EVEN NEWS when we reported the fact that the
district was suffering from the money shorts, last week. It has
been an on-going condition with the state of Florida as a whole
for many years. Why do you think the state adopted such a
tasteless remedy as the lottery to solve its problems?. Despera-
tion!
Florida schools, along with the state itself, are growing faster
than the people can keep up with the growth. Financing the
school system is just an activity of putting out fires, or patching
-' a leaky roof, or repairing broken windows or plumbing, as they
happen.
FLORIDA SCHOOLS, INCLUDING Gulf County's, are always
going to have money problems with the present archaic system
of operation and financing; you can count on it.
We don't know the answer, but we can recognize that we, as
' an entire state, have a, problem in this regard. Until that prob-
lem is solved with a system of action Instead of reaction, we
' shouldn't consider a mere shortage of money as an unusual sto-
ry. Rather, we should continue to consider it as a normal situa-
tion becoming even more so.

than that-I didn't go myself. And

and to tell the truth, except for

there ain't a whole lot to it. Just a-
small country town with small
country houses and small roads
and a small town square-with a
small World War I cannon guard-
ing the small corner drug store .
. it's near 'bout the perfect.
place for a cornbread get together.
I don't remember my first,
encounter with. cornbread. I do
remember telling Leon at a very-
early age that the stuff kind 'a


scratched my throat going down.
He looked over rather sympathet-

We must 'a set some kind of corn-
bread eatin' record in the fifties
and early sixties. And believe me.
I acquired a taste for it! We ate it
noon and night and what leftovers
the dogs didn't get. we'd warm up
for breakfast. ':
We ate it by itself. We'd rip
open the middle and throw in a
stick of butter. We loved it with
stewed tomatoes. We mashed it
up with pinto beans. poured
ketchup over it and pretended we
were dining on ground steak.
We made "haystacks" out of it
and turnip greens. We ate; cab-
bage and cornbread sandwiches.
We sopped up our lima beans
with it. And for dessert we'd
crumble up a handful of corn-
bread into a glass of buttermilk--

Mother would send us off to

I .Had Occasion To Recall My Batching Activities For A Few Days


I HAD TO batch it for most of
'last week -and it brought back
memories of a few years back
when I was forced to batch it,
right regular while Frenchle went
off visiting with her mother.

You know how women ate:
they all need a regular dose of
R&R with mother every once: In a*
while. Well, Frenchie used to
bundle all the kids up In the car
and take off for her mother's
house right often leaving, me,
alone at the house, learning how
to fend for myself. .

I had to "bring up" some of
those experiences last week. You
know things.like, how do you eat
without cooking, how do you :get
along more than two or three'
days without washing dishes,
how : do. you make the clean
clothes last for the duration, how
do you keep the bed linens clean,
short of washing them, how long
can you go without having to
clean the house, etc., etc., et. .


FIXING MEALS IS a major
hurdle :for me. Breakfast was no
problem until the morning the
milk soured. You just open a new
box of corn flakes, expected to
last, the absent wife period. Of
course this makes for sort of
monotonous eating after about
the third day.
The bananas urn sort :of
dark after about two days; and
black after four mornings of sit-
ting on the sideboard. They aren't
so bad, peeled, however. They're
just sort of mushy and slimy, but
they're still edible. .
But now the sour milk in
your corn flakes is another sub-


ject entirely. The milk turned' sort
of rank after about two days .. .
especially after I forgot one morn-
ing and left it out of the refrigera-
tor.
Did you ever eat corn flakes
in ice water?
Or drink a diet Pepsi for
breakfast? .
Or open a can of potted
meat? '

LUNCH, I GOT by with fairly
easy. I just ate take-out down at
the office, or caught lunch with
the Kiwanis and Rotary, clubs.
They both eat at Julie's On Reid,
so these two days you might al-


most say were normal so far.as
my lunch hour went.
Supper was another.matter. I
solved that one by eating outl
I wouldn't be a travelling
salesman for any amount of mon-
Sev. Do you know what it is like
.being forced to eat out every
night? We do, at least once every
. week; even when Frenchie is at
home. But ,to be forced to eat out
every night, or face another bowl
of sodden corn' flakes at home, or
Seven worse, having to do without,
leaves not much of an alternative.
Fortunately, we have a dou-
ble sink in,. our kitchen; even
more 'space to hold dirty dishes
that manage to'pileU'up, in spite, of
all that eating out. .
I utilized both of them. To the
fullest! ,
I actually think that it was
the thought of- both those sinks
piling up with dirty dishes is the
only thing which .niade Frenchie
c, urtail-her visit from becoming an
extended..stay.


NOW, MY MASTERPIECE of
watching just had to be my sleep-
ing arrangements.
I could get around the ,soiled
underwear, and the depleting
stock of towels and washcloths
and their related pile-up in the
bathroom corner. I'll admit the
bathroom looked like a couple of
seals had taken up residence in
our house. Fortunately, for me,
the underwear and shower linens
stretched out and lasted for the
duration of Frenchie's stay away
from home, or I would have had
to resort to treading on unfamil-
iar ground-operating the wash-
ing machine! .
But, back to the sleeping ar-
rangements.
I took care of that one like a
champ. I didn't have to- change
the bed sheets out once. .
How-you ask--did I do that?
Well, the .first couple of nights
Frenchie., was gone, me and
Smudgie slept on one side of the
bed. For the other two nights, we


simply moved to the other side.
, The sheets definitely, had to
be changed after she came home.

OTHER LITTLE BITS of ne-
cessity just got taken care of as
they cropped utip.
" For instance, -do you need to
get a clipping ou? of a week old
newspaper? They're in a pile in
our: den---or at least they. were in
a pile, until Frenchie came home
That small spill of lemonade
on the kitchen floor and its atten-
danrt sticky mess left on the floor,
just got roped 'off and walked
around until she returned.
I saved all the pear peelings
and banana skins for her to use
as mulch for her flowers. They're
still lying in a pile on the kitchen
table, so they'll be easy to find.
I took all the calls from long
distance phone service salesmen
while she was gone; that little ser-
vice performed by me ought to be
worth something, don't you
think?

Kiwanis Club Finds Out


How Port St. Joe High School Had So Many Honor Graduates


A few weeks ago, members of
the Kiwanis Club stood in awe,
with' the rest of the community,
at the percentage of the graduat-
ing class of. Port St. Joe High
which were graduating with hon-
ors or high honors. Nearly half of
the current year's students re-
ceived their diplomas with these
stipulations on them.
Tuesday. the club found out
that it was a multitude of things
which were. responsible .for the
large number of honors and high
honors graduates. .
Caroline Rish, newly appoint-
ed principal over the Middle
School and Highland View Ele-
mentary School attempted to tell
them. Ms. Rish was assistant
.principal at Port St. Joe High-
School last year.

Miss Leona Matheny was Clabber

I can eat cornbread any wayt
you can fix-it--except; of course.,
for that jiffy mix stuff; which, as
you all: know, ain't even close to
being real cornbread. It's Betty
Crocker yellow cake mix with a
little corn starch thrown in.
I remember at those picnics
: Mr. GCleatus Essary could belch
and everybody under the tree
'could tell you immediately
whether he'd just finished off Mrs.
Ridinger's pepper bread, sampled
,Miss Wiley's special honey and
molasses "johnny cakes", or had
treated, himself to Belle
SAlexander's' twice fried country
squares. Shucks, if the wind was
just right you could determine if
he'd sampled more than one of
.;'the above and the order in which
he'd enjoyed them. '

years of teaching I have been in
three systems, including some
very large systems with excellent
records of accomplishment. The
faculty here is equally as good or
better."
"Next, Gulf County's scholar-
ship program comes in for its
share of accomplishment. Every
student in the high school knows,
he or she must excel in order to
take advantage of the scholarship
help which is available." she said.
"As a result of this sense of ac-
complishment .our students try
harder."
Rish pointed to school perfor-
mance on state-wide tests. She
said that a few years ago the
school introduced preparatory
classes for SAT and ACT testing.
"These classes are very well at-
tended," she said.
Another incentive which she
gave credit for student achieve-


ment is,the Gold Card Club. "The
students actively work for the me-
dallions they pass out each year
along with scholarship dollars to
achievers," the speaker said.
As a result, several seniors,
scored on the two tests at a level,
which qualified them as Florida,
Academic Scholars. In 1995, the
state average of students passing
the' HSCT Mathematic Test was
77%. Port St. Joe High School
students scored 98%.,
"I'm not going to tell you that
some-a very few-of the honors
graduates didn't take easy cours-
es. Some did. Their numbers
were very small, however. Most of
our honors and high honors stu-
dents did it while taking 'college
preparatory courses, not easy,
ones.
The speaker continued with
her reasons for so many excellent


students in the school. She listed
the newly adopted 4 by 4 class
periods as one of the reasons. "A
student takes only four subjects
at a time and completes them by
the end of a semester, freeing him
up to begin four more entirely dif-
ferent subjects," she said.
'This system doesn't overload
the study time for a student and
he can concentrate on the two or
three subjects which he needs to
spend more time with," she con-
tinued.
"All in all, it's a number of
reasons why so many students
graduated with honors or high
honors this year. For the past few
years it has been the same story.
The, students are motivated. It's
as simple as that. The reason
isn't that more students are tak-
ing the easy courses. It's quite
'the opposite," the speaker -con-
cluded.

Catfish Roe

This pair of fish roe belonged to, an 18 Ib flathead catfish
recently caught by Anthony Pridgeon (Wewa).
..Literally thousands of potential flatheads are contained in
these two roe membranes, a thought that has brought concern
to many fishermen along the Apalachicola waterway.
Gulf and Calhoun counties have gone on record opposing
the pesky catfish saying that they are wreaking havoc on the
game fish population. ..
An, example of Just how voracious the flathead's appetite
can be was also found in Pridgeon's catch. The fish had two
bream, two channel catfish and what appeared to be the par-
tially digested remains of a small bass in the stomach along
with its gut full of eggs.


This type of trash pickup may be discontinued by the city and left up to the owner to dispose of in the landfill.

LETTERS


List School Board's Position In Hiring Teachers


-,TO: Editor
.,. T 'aisjsaareference to a letter
'which appeared in The Star on
June 5, 1997. The writer stated a
concern regarding a "technicality"
affecting a teacher who was not
rehired by the Gulf School
System.
You can rest assured that
much more is Involved here than
a mere "technicality". There is
nothing which irritates this writer
more than needless red tape and
a bureaucracy which seems to.
have little to do but harass citi-
zenis. Again, that is not the case in
this situation.
The issues in focus here deal,
with a most important task and"
responsibility -. to insure, insofar
as possible a safe and quality
education for thle youth of Florida.

Where We Stand
,On School Project,
Dear Mr. Ramsey:
Questions relating to the Port
St. Joe Elementary' Renovation
and Construction project have
. been increasing in number. With.
the approaching July 1 initiation
of, the half .cent sales tax, .we.
believe interest will become. even'I
greater. '
The following facts are provid-
ed with a request for your assis-
tance in announcing the status of
-the project:
f. '. Collins and Associates of
..Panama Cityr were selected to be
'the architects, of the project on
February 12, 1997.
2. The bonding process was
hampered by local economic con-
ditions. That process was com-
pleted during the week of May 26,
1997. The total bond is
$2,885,214.72. Without the
bonding agreements, finalization
of the contract with the architect
had to be deferred. :
3. Existing blue prints are
being converted by a computer
assisted drafting software to pro-
vide a basis for future arphitec-
tural drawing recommendations.
4. Collaborative.planning with
architects and educators and
development of educational speci-
fications will begin during the
next several months. This must
be completed before the construc-
tion bid process can begin.
We appreciate your assis-
tance as we try to provide infor-
mation to the public about plans
relating, to Port St. Joe
Elementary School's renovation
and construction activities.
Sincerely,
/s/ Jerry Kelley
Superintendent


Florida Lawsand-.State Board
of Education .,Rules. .are very
strong and clear on expectations
for those who teach our children:
1. Each person who works with
,school children must present'
S a check of fingerprint records
by both the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement and
the FBI.
2. Each beginning teacher must
apply for and receive a teach-
ing certificate (that he/s'e is
considered a professional,
therefore a license is
required). ..
',,. The individual teacher is sole-
Sly responsible for becoming
'' properly certified (He/she Is
- given 2 years by the state to
meet minimum require-
ments).

Section. Informs each applicant,
in writing, about necessary
requirements which include pro-
fessional, subject area, and mini-
mum skills examinations 'and
existing deficiencies in his/her
transcripts. Very specific direc-
tions, with consequences. 'and
time lines are given to each incli-

Appreciates
Support
Dear Editor:
I 'would like to take' this op-
portunity to say thank-you to all
the many people who have shown
their support for me during' this
very difficult' time. Your kind
words and prayers 'have helped
me so much just making it
through each day.
To each of you who were able
to show up and show your sup-
port last week at the school board
meeting, your gesture moved me
deeply. I have always believed
that if you put your faith in God
that He would surely guide you
each step of the way.
Finally a gracious thank you
to the school board members and
Mr. Kelley for allowing me to
speak. to them openly and honest-
ly regarding the circumstances
that surround' this situation. I
have enjoyed the three, years 'that
I have worked in the Gulf County
School System and I hope that I
may be allowed to continue to
serve the children of this county.
To my parents and students,
thank you for allowing me to be a
part of your life, hopefully we
both have learned through our
experiences. Remember to always
reach for your dreams and never
give up..
Sincerely,
Charlene Jo Hobbs Hernandez


vidual., '
Additionally. the; Gulf County
School System cares enough to
offer assistance, as requested, to
each teacher or instructional per-
sonnel as he/she works toward
full certification. Some refuse or
otherwise decline the offer to'
assist them .in the process of
becoming certified.
Certificates expire on June
30, of the second year of validity
(after 2 full years). Our 'superin-
tendent has gotten anr extension
of said certificate, at the
"eleventh" hour, so that district is
not adversely affected. -
Finally, after all is said and
done, some come up short on
meeting all state required stan-
dards and therefore are no longer
certified to teach in Florida. Sad,
but true! I

Infant.
(from Page 4A)
only three doses at two, four, and
12 to 15 months.
Because of changes and
improvements in the vaccine
schedule, parents/caregivers,
should talk to their health, care
providers about the most recent
recommendations.
Catch-up vaccinations can be
given if the child did not get the.
vaccinations at the recommended
times. But delays in starting
immunization result in a delay in
the child's protection against
these dangerous diseases.
In most cases, multiple vac-

squares, rectangles or other shapes. It may be one or several layers. ,

grown-ups will love. The chewy-crisp oatmeal cookie crust'can be made with
either quick or old fashioned oats. A portion of the crust .mixture is reserved for
the lopping; the remainder is patted on the bottom of the pan and baked. The
moist, noi-too-sweet middle layer pairs fresh bananas with dried fruit.
These bars will keep several days at room temperature or they can be wrapped
individually and frozen. Packed in a lunch box, they'll be thawed and ready to
enjoy by lunchtime.

Dear Counselor:
Ever since I've been laid off. I
have been feeling worthless and
like I just can't continue living this
way. Yes. I do get unemployment.
so money is not the problem, it's
time. There is no point in getting
up some days. and if I do. I dnnk
and lay around. Can you help?

Feeling Lowin St. Joe
Dear "Low in St. Joe", .
Having your unemployment
status and routine change can be
a difficult time of transition. It
sounds like you have relied on
work to provide part of )'our self-
value, as well as your daily sched-
ule.
First, you must realize, that
you are an important, viable per-
son. You are experiencing a signif-
icant change and )ou are unsure
how to cope. Changes are stressful
to everyone. It does not matter
whether the changes .are volun-
tary, involuntary, good or bad. All
change requires adjustment.
It is 'time to explore other
options (aside from your old job)
that make you feel worthy such as:
hobbies, recreational activities,
volunteering, etc. Do something
you find enjoyable aside from


drinking and laying around.
Get:out and about, enjoy your
' surroundings and the many
resources .of this area (for example,
the beach, the waters, the parks).
Ma\ be visit a friend or relative that
you enjoy seeing. Exercise, eat in a
healthy manner. sleep and awake
on a schedule and take care of
yourself.
If your feelings of worthless-
ness persist and you. are question-,
Sng your- life. you may need to
explore the possibility of short-
term counseling. The Gulf County.
Guidance Clinic also provides a
Scnsis counselor who is available
S24 hours a da\ to assist. Please
call 227-1145, for more informa-
tion, on counseling services or if

Cameron Likely and Ryan
Yeager received phone calls last
Wednesday_ afternoon to notify
them of their selection in this
year's baseball draft. Likely was
drafted in, the 22nd round by the
Chicago Cubs, while Yeager was
selected as the Boston Red Sox'%
29th round pick.
"I thought it was a good round
to be drafted in, I figured I would
be picked in the later rounds."
said Ryan Yeager.
Yeager has chosen to go on to
Gulf Coast 'Community College.
instead of pursuing his profes-
sional career right away. Likely
will probably' attend Chipola
Junior College 'instead of signing--
with the Cubs, but is currently in
Mexico on a senior trip and
unavailable for comment.
"I chose to go to GCCC to
improve as a ball player and to get
bigger and stronger. I believe this
will help me receive a better offer
from the Red Sox after next sea-
son' or improve my. stock for next
year's draft.," said Yeager. "Mr.
Wrenn (scout for the Red Sox) told .
me to work on getting bigger and
stronger and maybe they wvould
pick me up after next season."
"Three in one year to be draft-
ed out of a 3A high school." said
Coach Duane McFarland. "It's
something that everyone in the
community is very proud of."
Brian Jenkins and the New
York Mets organization reached a'-
deal on Monday evening. Family
and friends watched on as Brian
officially became a part of the New
York Mets.
"It's like icing on the cake,".

As trade barJriers in foreign
markets continue to erode,
increasingly affluent consumers
in those markets are beginning to,
better appreciate a familiar U.S.
food-beef. At the same time, beef
producers in Gulf County .and
around the country are-discover-
ing the impact a successful beef
export effort can have on the
value of their animals.
Beef exports are increasing all
over the world, according to Polly
Golden, Executive Director of the
Florida Beef Council. That's a
function both of U.S. efforts to
loosen foreign beef import restric-
tions and hard-hitting promotions
that are helping to introduce con-
sumers elsewhere to the benefits
'of U.S. beef. These promotions are
funded, in part. by Gulf County
beef producers and ,other beef
producers across the country
through their, beef checkoff pro-
gram.
"We're working aggressively
worldwide to demonstrate that
U.S. beef is a good value," s ys
Golden. "Through the U.S. Meat
Export Federation.. a wide variety
of education and promotion cam-
paigns are being conducted that
give us a chance to extend our
marketing opportunities."
Programs are now being con-
ducted byUSMEFin about 50 for-
eign countries, according to
USMEF President and CEO Philip
Seng. USMEF hopes to increase
beef exports this year by 21 per-
cent over 1996, with 'special
emphasis on countries where
consumers are willing-and bet-
ter able-to purchase the prod-
ucts.
"Barring some unforeseen
catastrophe, we expect U.S. -beef
sales to Increase in all major
export markets," says Seng. "It
won't be easy, but we think this is
a realistic goal for us to work for."
Japan is a country where
trade barriers are loosening and
beef exports are increasing, says
Golden. Import duties for beef in
Japan will come down from the-
current 50 percent to 44.3 per-
* cent this year. That country Is
already the largest importer of
U.S. beef. taking in more than.
half of all the beef and beef variety
meats exported by this country
last year.
"Our industry has seen a
three-fold increase In beef exports
since the beef checkoff was insti-
tuted in 1986, and a five-fold
increase over the. past 20 years."
says' Golden. "With 1996 beef
exports totalling more than $3 bil-
lion. It's obvious that these mar-,
kets are critical to the bottom line'
for U.S. beef producers."
Statistics from ,the. USMEF
support that claim. Exports cur-.
rently account for almost 13 per-.
cent of the wholesale value of total1
U.S. beef production, up from.
only 4.5 percent in 1987..
Furthermore, a recent study
demonstrated that if there had

been' no beef exports in 1996, the
total market value of a 500 pound'
steer calf would have been $99.70''
less, and the value of a fed steer
-would have been $110.06 less.

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


TRACED TO A TENDON
The sudden onset of pain
and swelling of the ankle fol-
lowed by gradual sagging of the
arch are indications of damage to
the posterior tibial tendon. This
tendon is connected to the tibia,
or shin bone, winds around the
ankle bones, and then connects
to the small bones of the foot.
If the tendon is subjected to
injury, inflammation or other
stresses, it can weaken and rup-
ture. When that happens it caus-
es the ankle pain and swelling
and the sagging arch.


In some a .
cases, the podi-
atrist provides
orthotic shoe
inserts to im-
prove the foot's function. More
often, however, surgical repair
is the appropriate treatment. for
a ruptured posterior tibial ten-
don.

Children Suffer Majority of Dog Bites


By Dennis Geoghagan
Postmaster of Port St. Joe
For every letter carrier bitten,
hundreds of children needlessly
suffer the pain and trauma of dog
bites. Whatever the reasons for
them, dog bites are a serious
problem for the entire communi-
ty, not just our letter carriers try-
ing to deliver your mail. Nation-
wide, Postal Service carriers
suffered 2,795 dog bites last year
(an average of nine. dog attacks
/ every delivery day), and that fig-
ure does not include the number
of threatening incidents that did
not result in injury.
These numbers pale in com-
parison with the more than 2 mil-
lion children who fall victim each
year. '
In Port St. Joe. last year we
had two dog bites. 'and 12 in-
stances ..where, dogs interfered
with 'the delivery of mail. Fortu-
nately, most dog bites can be pre-
vented' through responsible pet
ownership.
If a letter carrier or other
neighborhood Worker needs to de-
liver a cerufiedfletter or a package


to you, put your dog into a separ-
ate room before opening your
front door. Dogs have been
known to burst through screen
doors or plate-glass windows to
get at delivery persons.
Just ask Dover, Delaware,
Postmaster Jack Bailey. One of
his veteran letter carriers, who
had survived eight vicious attacks
during his 20 year career, felt se-
cure in his ability to avoid dog
bites. He owns four dogs himself.
But, ohn Thu.rsday, February
25, 1993, that carrier would be
scarred for life-both physically.
and emotionally.
While delivering to a mailbox
at the entrance' to a customer's
home, the carrier watched in hor-
ror as a 100 pound dog charged
the front door.. Instinctively, he
braced his foot against Ithe door
as the dog backed up to charge
again. This time, the animal
crashed through the plexiglass-
plated door and tore into the flesh
of his arm.
"It happened so quickly that
he didn't have time to react," ex-
plains Bailey. The carrier, whom
Bailey prefers not to identify, is


still undergoing treatment.
"The animal's bite so severely
shredded his left arm that he has
undergone, several restorative
surgeries and may never have full
use of his arm," says Bailey.
Nationally, the number of
carriers bitten by dogs. has
dropped 'from more than 7,000 in
1983 to 2,795 by 1996. This is'
because of greater cooperation
from dog 'owners. stricter leash
laws, and stepped-up efforts to
educate letter carriers and the
public about dealing with the'
problem.
Unfortunately, our employees
still face dangerous incidents...
Our .carriers 'are vigilant, and
we may choose to stop mail deliv-
ery at an address if they are'
threatened by a vicious dog. In
some instances,' Postal Service.
employees have sued and'-collect-.
ed damages for dog bite injuries.
We can't control people's dogs;
only dog owners'can do that."' "
While some attribute attacks
on letter carriers to dogs' inbred
aversion to uniforms, experts say
the psychology actually runs


much deeper. Every day that a
1, later carrier comes into a dog's
territory, the dog barks and the
letter carrier leaves. Day after day
the dog sees this action repeated.
After a week or two, the, dog ap-
pears to feel invincible 'against in-
truders..: Once it' gets loose',
tlere's a good chance it will at-
tack.


When school lets' out, dog
owners should remind their chil-
dren about the need to keep the
family dog secured. We also rec-
ommend that parents ask their
children not to take mail directly
from letter carriers. A dog may
see handing mail to a child as a
threatening gesture.
These simple reminders and


helpful tips can reduce, the haz-
ard of dog bite attacks. Help us to
help you this spring and summer.
This is the first in a series of
three columns byPort St. Joe Post-
master Dennis Geoghagan ad-
dressing the problem of dog at-
tacks,- both in the Postal Service
and in the community. Next week:

New Methodist Pastor Gave First Sermon Sunday


Rev. Jesse Evans
Comes Here From
Myrtle Grove
One would think the Metho-
dists have themselves a "Gator"
for a new pastor from the displa-y
of alligators on his desk. Pastor
Jesse Evans declares that isn't
necessarily so, however.
Jesse, as he prefers to be
called, says he is a Florida
"Cracker", having been born out
in the country, near DeFunlak
Springs. Like so many of his pre-
decessors, the new Methodist
minister of the First United Meth-
odist Church has served church-
es all over Northwest Florida and
South Alabama in his 34 years of
service to the church.
He says he even served a
Methodist church in 'DeFuniak
Springs, "not three, miles from
where I was born" .
The minister comes to Port
St. Joe from a charge at Myrtle
Grove, near Pensacola. "It's nice
Sto come to a small town after the
rat race of being In Pensacola." he
said.
Rev. Evans preached his first;
sermon, since coming to Port St.
Joe, last Sunday., "I .was very
pleased with the warm reception I
received," the pastor said. "You
have a town full of nice, friendly
people here."
The new pastor brings .his
wife, Bess, to Port St. Joe with
him. They' have two grown daugh-
ters, Susannah,. who resides in
Gainesville and a married daugh-
ter, Cynthia Brown of Pensacola.
The new minister likes to fish and
owns an old boat he declares is
nearly 20 years old. ; :
"I'm looking forward to my
time of service here. The people I
have met in the church seem very
hospitable and friendly. I'm eager
to&'get into being their pastor," the
newly-appointed'minister said. ..
Rev. Evans replaced Rev. Ze-
doc Baxter, who retired this
month following eight years of
service to the local church, and'
moved to his old family home-
place in Alabama.
The new minister doesn't do

SAvoid Encounters The ABC's for Safe Fun in the Sun


With Alligators

Gators Sometimes Mistake People or
Pets as an Entree for a Tasty Meal


The alligator is as much a
symbol of Florida as the state's
beaches and the Everglades.
Tourists coming to Florida pay to
see them and residents live with
them year around but on occa-
sion conflicts do arise.
Whether it's an alligator sun-
ning itself on someone's lawn,
ambling up a street in a subdivi-
sion, or, attacking someone's pet,
most people know they can call
the nearest Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission
regional office and their problem
'gator will be removed. However,
there are several things people'
can do to avoid some of these con-
flicts, said Lt. Stan Kirkland, the
commission'st Public Information
Coordinator.
"For one thing, people should
never feed .alligators or dispose of
any kind offood scraps in or near
the water that yill attract them,"
Kirldand said.it's not only illegal
under Florida law to feed them,
but an alligator that associates
S people with food is going to come
back again, and almost certainly
will have to be destroyed."
While some people like to take
their pet to the local lake for a
plunge, they should avoid lakes
Inhabited by large alligators and
areas with heavy vegetation. He
said pets more closely resemble
natural prey Items and pets
should be closely watched around
any open water body.
Swimmers should also 'pay

Planning Auxiliary
Deputy Class Here
The' Gulf C'ounty Sheriffs'
Office is in the process of spon-
soring an auxiliary deputy class.
The-class will be a 60-hour class'
whichwill be. instructed through
Gulf Coast Community College.,
In order to have the class in'
Gulf County, Sheriff M cKeithen
advised he would need at least 12
students. The class will cost $75.
Anyone. interested in taking"
the auxiliary deputy class should
notify Sheriff McKeithen or Capt.
Joe Nugent at the Gulf County
Sheriffs Office (227-1115).

attention to where and when they
go sivlmming. Kirkland said
swimming at dusk or at night
when alligators most actively feed
is never recommended.' Instead,
he said swimming should be con-
fined to daytime hours and in
marked swimming areas.
Despite people paying atten-
tion to safety rules, some alliga-
tors become a nuisance. Kirkland
said any alligator over four feet in
length and posing a threat 'to
humans will be removed after the
GFC receives a complaint.
He said GFC-licensed trap-
pers remove the complaint alliga-
tor and are allowed to sell the
hide, meat and other sellable
parts.


Warm, sunny days are wonderful
especially after a grueling winter. But
what feels so good on your skin,
warming your soul, can be ver bad for
you, your family, and especially the
delicate skin of a baby. Sun exposure
has long been seen as a healthy benefit
of outdoor activity. Recent information
has shown some unhealthy effects of
sun exposure. including early aging of
the skin, cataracts of the eye and
skin cancer. .
"Parents need to realize that freckles
are not cute-they're a sign of sun
damage. And even one or two blister-
ing sunburns can significantly in-
crease a child's risk for developing
melanoma skin cancer later, in life,"
said Roger Ceilley, M;D., President
of the American Academy of.Dermatol-
ogy.
The sun is the main cause of skin
cancer, ,the most common form of can-
cer in the United States. There will be
one million new cases of skin cancer
this year. Skin cancer can and does
occur in children and young adults, but

The Office of Career Develop-
ment at Gulf Coast Community
College will hold its first "Return-
to Earn" workshop on June 17.
The workshop is scheduled for
10:00 a.m. in the Gibson Lecture
.Hall located in the Student Union
East Building.
The workshop's aim is to
create an awareness of opportuni-
ties and motivate dropouts to go
back to school to attain their
GEDs or high school diplomas.
'Thi workshop will also give,
many participants an opportunity
to meet representatives from local
businesses and recruiters from
the U.S. Armed Forces who will
share useful information about
employment, including informa-
tion about knowledge require-
ments and skills they seek in em-
ployees.
"Without a GED or high
school! diploma, 'many employ-
ment opportunities are not, at-
tainable," says Outreach Manager
Vickie Gainer. "Through this
grant we hope to help people con-
nect the lessons of the classroom
to a rewarding career." For more
information about 'this workshop

most of the cases occur in middle aged
-.and older people. Adults get skin can-
cer because they have already received
too much of the sun's damaging rays.
Our skin remembers each sunburn and
* each suntan year after year.
All skin cancers are harmful, and
some. especially inalignant melanoma,
can be deadly if left untreated. Sun












:exposure in early childhood and adoles-
cence contributes to skin cancer. "Sun-
burn is the most preventable risk factor
for 'skin cancer, including 'malignant
i melanoma. We can't change our skin
type or family history, but we can
change 'our sunbathing habits,"
*Di.Ceilley said.
Sun protection :should begin in in-
anric. nd continue throughout life.JIt
is estimated that children' get about 80
percentt of their total lifetime sun expo-
,- sure in the first 18 years of'life.,That's
'',because children spend irc H ml.r ,,ui-

fool you-most of the sun's, rays can

When choosing a sunscreen, look for

, especially the face, nose, ears, feet and
hands, and even the back of the knees.
Put it on 20 minutes Before" going
outdoors. The sunscreen needs time to
