SCHEDULING IRONED OUT*
A scheduling problem "which
cropped up last week has been
ironed out to the satisfaction of
students and school personnel.
Due to the block scheduling
system, only one class per day'
was tentatively planned for stu-
dents to take ROTC training. This
caused a conflict for many stu-
dents and the parents of those
students took, up the gauntlet in'
their behalf, carrying their com-,
plaint to a special meeting of thie
board last Tuesday.
In the interim bince that
time, Superintendent Kelley
worked with the principals of the
two high schools in the county
and reworked the schedule, al-
lowing three ROTC class periods
in Port St. Joe and two .classes,
plus a recruiting, elementary
class in the Wewahitchka High
Kelley said the recruiting, ele-
mentary class-known as a
"wheel" class-will be taught in
the middle school classes and is
designed for recruiting students
to take the course when the stu-
dent reaches the high school

Good For All of Port St. Joe
,EVkkYTHING IS JUST BEFORE returning to normal
around here once again. That means we can once again start fo-
busing on different things other than the paper mill and wonder-
S ng When it is going to start up again.
One of those items we direly need to concentrate on is the
proposed marina for our city. We believe it is a necessity, for
"bth our own people to have and to use, but also to attract the
money-spending tourist.,,Tourists DO spend money; gobs of
money, and boating is one of the things they spend most of-the!
",ig money doing,
SWe can see no good reason for us to delay this project any
longer. Just because one or two citizens spoke against the pro-
ject at a city commission meeting is no valid reason for folding
tip our tents and once more placing the project on hold for an
indefinite period of time.
WE'LL NEVER HAVE A better opportunity to have a marina:
we say "NEVER!"
The state is Just before granting us a permit to construct one
on a choice piece of property which the city received for the
princely sum of $10.00, and made available for the project. It
has been cleared and is ready to receive the installation. Plans
have been drawn and engineering done. All the hard, time-
cionsuming work of building a marina has been done.
This preparation to build, wasn't accomplished overnight. It
took a group of dedicated people many months of intensive
work, all of which would be wasted unless we get cracking with
the actual construction. ,
WE HAVE A GOOD chunk of the money in hand through a
grant. Like all grants-and rightfully so-this money didn't come
without strings attached. First off, it has to be used before a cer-
tain date, which happens to fall next spring. That doesn't give us
much time to lolly-gag around.
It also requires matching money and stipulates that certain
procedures be followed in its spending. In order for the time-
table for spending to be met, it may be necessary for the city to
obligate some of its surplus money. Note that we said "obligate".
We didn't say, furnish. Until an. investor can be located to fi-
nance the portion of the marina which the grant will not cover, it,
may be necessary. The city has the money. cash! That came
through good management and we don't advocate just throwing
it away. We believe a marina will pay its own way and become an
asset to the city.
So, whatever it takes, let's get in gear and provide it for the
accomplishment of this project before we lose our seed money.
DEDICATION OF REID AVENUE revitalization has been a
long time in coming, but, finally, the day is here. Likely the mov-
ers and shakers who stuck with the project during all those 10
years of planning were a stubborn lot,/but, we believe if they had
known it would have taken 10 years to complete the project,
they might have given it up as a lost cause.
Stubborn Wayne Taylor was chairman of the committee.
which was born out of the Merchants Association. He just kept
at the committee and the association, for all those years until
thejob was finally completed.
The committee can be proud of what their stick-to-it-ness
has accomplished. The street looks great!
Now, if we will just work together and keep it that way.
IT WILL TAKE EFFORT to maintain the beauty of Reid Ave-
nue. The flower beds will get weeds and will not weed them-
selves. The street will become trashy looking and will not pick
up its own trash. The benches, which are located in strategic
spots on the street, will be in need of a paint job from time to:
time, and they will not paint themselves. The trash cans will
need emptying from time to time. They 'will not empty them-
All of this means that we, as citizens of this city,: will need to
pull a few weeds, now and then, or hire it done. It means that we
will have to take care of our benches If we desire them to main-
tain that fresh-painted look. It means we will have to pick up a
little trash in order for the street to remain clean and fresh look-
ing. It may even mean that we must empty a trash can or two..
All of this maintenance has to be done as surely as night fol-
Sows day. We must do It, or hire it done.

I SAW IN THE paper the oth-

against NASA for trespassing on
the planet Mars.-
Folks, this suit Is being taken
seriously in some quarters. May-
be NASA had better back off and
reassess their actions before they
go any further with their explora-
tion of the red planet.
The explorations to date have
been pretty extensive. They Just
might make somebody upset with
their actions. After all, I also read
last Wednesday where Sojoumer
had ventured out 20 feet on one
of its exploration trips. It even

that there was a little hanky-

this being a little risque?
PROM WHAT I saw of the

rocks of Mars, they all looked like
dogs to me. But with Sojourner on
its way to Mars, cooped up in a
space ship for nearly a year, why,
I suppose any old rock would be-
gin to look pretty good to it; him,
she-whichever the case may be.
If these types of shenanigans
are taking place between the toy
cars of NASA and rocks, I hate to
imagine what the story will be
like about the first man and wom-'
an they send into outer space, on
a trip to explore Mars in person.
It'll probably read like a Mickey
Spillane novel or show like one of
those Walt Disney movies us Bap-
tists are objecting to.
Gazing at the moon with ro-

Now, I'm wondering if he has
his deed recorded anywhere. You
know, one has to record the own-
ership, of any property in order to
keep people from trespassing on
property that doesn't belong to
them. It's the law! I think.
I know it's the law that you

Panhandle Paving Files Suit Against County
Bring to A Head Argument Over Releasing Funds by Board Which Covers Bad Paving Claim'

for progress payment ($14,707.75)
and retainage ($137,489.12). The

At Large" ordinance during the
board's first public hearing to
consider the ordinance passage.
The ordinance is very similar
to the city's existing ordinance
regulating dogs running at large.
The big difference is in regard to
the penalty to violators. Currently
violation of the ordinance is a
misdemeanor, but under the
guidelines of the new ordinance it
would be changed to a civil penal-
ty with various fines to violators.
It established fines of $25 for
a first offense, $50 for the second
offense (within six months), and
$100 for a third offense (within a
year). The final public hearing,
before the board considers final
approval of the ordinance, will be
held during their next regular
meeting Monday, August 18th.

Chief Leffert approached the
board with several suggested,
changes to the current ordinance
pertaining to possession of alco-
holic beverages in city parks,
roads, rights-of way, and other
public property. He stated that
consumption of alcoholic bever-
ages was very difficult for officers
to enforce. "Violators will simply
hold wrapped containers in their
hands until our officers walk by,
then continue to consume," he
told the board. .
Leffert' proposed ordinance'
change which would make .pos-
session of the open container a
violation of city ordinance. He
said this would allow officers to
better address the problem on the
above-mentioned public property.
The sample ordinance, sub-

alcohol and places some of the

The city charter specifies the
time and dates of board meetings

friends of the deceased Justice.
"We hope to honor Justice
Adkins' memory by making it pos-
sible for aspiring law students to
receive financial help in their
quest for further education," said
Justice Adkins was a gradu-
ate of the University of Florida as
well as the Florida College of Law
and he exemplified the best in
Intellectual excellence, as well as
common sense application of the
law," said Linn.
Beth Lawrence Adkins,
Justice Adkins' widow, has pre-
sented this check to Jason White
,of Port St. Joe. Mrs. Adkins is for-
merly of Port St. Joe and Panama
City. Jason is the son of Susie

as a student athletic trainer for
the FSUISeminoles football team.
He participated as an athletic
trainer in the 1994 and 1996

Sugar Bowl and was a student
trainer for *the 1993 National
.Championship football team.
In 1993, he was named Head
Student Trainer for men's swim-
ming and in 1996 was Head

ties, Jason maintained a high
grade point average necessary to
maintain his partial scholarship
from the FSU Athletic Department
as a student athletic trainer.
Jason has been accepted to
the Florida Coastal School of Law
in Jacksonville and will pursue
his law degree there.
Mrs. Adkins said, "Jason is
known to be an outstanding indi-

For the school officials to determine eligibility, all other households must provide the following information listed

This Week's Area Fishing Report
The first part of the week was hot and calm and the fish were
biting both near shore and offshore. The kings are doing their
,usual July and August hot weather practice of biting on top in the
early morning and biting deep later in the day.
There are still some nice scallops in the bay and the specs are
biting in the deeper channels on live bait.-
The kings should continue to hit. in the ship's channel and on
the reef, and offshore fishing will remain good as long as the
,weather stays hot.
Safety Tip: Never leave shore,, even on a short trip, without
-isbme form of communication-a radio or telephone is the best.
,Also, if possible, fish with a companion boat.

The Department of Agriculture
appropriations provide for needed
dollars to support rural farming,
school breakfast and lunch funds
for children, and the highly suc-
cessful Women, Infant, and
Children (WIC) program.
Total funding for these pro-

increase from last year. Support
for rural housing loans and busi-

loans make a real difference in
many of our communities.
Also, the House preserved

"Deadheading" On State Lands Prohibited
Taking Submerged Logs From State's Streams Declared to be Illegal Action
By: Rep. Allen Boyd
"America Values Our
Veterans and Farmers"
Board 'of Trustees of the Internal
Improvement Trust Fund (BOT)
approved leases for the right to
remove deadhead logs from sover-
eign submerged lands. No dead-
head leases have been approved
since 1974 when a request to the
BOT was! denied due to environ-
Environmental concerns sur-
rounding removal of deadhead
logs are: 1) deadhead logs have
created valuable fishery habitats
in the water body, and 2( removal
of the logs can result in signifi-
cant water quality problems due
to siltation and turbidity caused
by the dredging necessary to
recover the logs.
DEP staff has previously
issued informal warnings to indi-
viduals engaged in deadheading
activities and set written notice to
known interested parties stating
that no further removal of
unbranded deadhead logs from
sovereign submerged lands will be
authorized, and staff will take,
appropriate enforcement action
against those participating in
Those persons regarded as
owners of branded deadhead logs
must apply for a dredge and fill
permit and a sovereign sub-
merged lend lease or consent of
use before removing deadhead
logs. Applicants must demon-
strate that removal of the dead-
head logs will not cause violations
of water quality standards or
adversely affect fish and wildlife
habitat, navigation, erosion,
shoaling or property of others.

What Kind of
Body Will We
.. shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto
His glorious body ... "-Philippians 3:21
OME imagine that in heaven everyone will all have a
ormless spiritual body, and just float about like a cloud. On
occasion I have heard some suggest that being a spirit and
floating around among the clouds of heaven didn't seem all that
great to them. And some think when we go to heaven we will be
angels. Neither of these ideas are correct, according to the
Scripture. When we become a Christian, our souls are redeemed
and kept in the grip of God's Grace, against the day when this
sinful body will also be redeemd and made new like the
glorious body of Christ. (See above Scripture)
After Jesus was resurrected, He entered rooms where his
apostles were gathered with the door closed and locked, yet he
entered. He even invited Thomas to "feel" His body. (John
20:27) Our bodies will be like His Spiritual and physical.
Those of us who die before Jesus Comes will go to be with
the Lord until the resurrection. ... absent fron the body, and
... present with the Lord." II Cor. 5:8. In Romans 8:23 we are
told we have the first-fruits of the Spirit (redemption of the
soul) and are waiting for the redemption of our bodies.
In heaven we will enjoy much the same joys we experience
now, without the pain and sorrows of this life. This earth will be
destroyed, but God promises a "new" earth wherein dwelleth
righteousness. It is not clear ini His Word, what role that new
earth may play in our heavenly future. At any rate we may be
sure that God's plan for His children will be wonderfully first
rate, and worthy of our absolute trust. He has promised us a
delightfully enjoyable, never-ending life in such heavenly
conditions that the human mind is unable to even imagine.
And +ir ticket to that gloriously wonderful new abode has
already been bought and paid for with the suffering and shed
blood of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
As to angels, they are God's created beings, and we will
not likely ever be an angel. To be like Jesus is enough for me!

agree on is that students need to
learn responsibility. Students
,who are held responsible for their
actions are most likely to develop
proper values and be more suc-

accomplish this goal-you can
help. us by supporting teachers
and your school. We need your

developing responsible students.

BEST FOOT FORWARD
By: Dr. Stephen J. Gross, Podiatrist
Got any new ideas for barbecue this Labor
You bet I do. Faithful readers will remember
my promise of a BBQ extravaganza in time
for end-of-summer celebrations. Back in May,
I challenged everyone to send me their tried-
and-true BBQ recipes. We put each of them
through their paces in the Betty Crocker
Kitchens, and I'm proud to publish two of my
favorites. So, here they are!
JESSIE OELKERS' BARBECUED RIBS
Jessie Oelkers of Thorton, Iowa, developed
this scrumptious recipe as a newlywed back
in the 1940's when her husband had a
hankering for ribs:
Cut 3 pounds pork spareribs or pork loin back,
ribs into serving pieces. Sprinkle all sides
with salt and pepper. Cook ribs in Dutch oven
over, medium-high heat or on rack in broiler
pan in 450oo oven, 20 to 30 minutes, turning
to brown all sides; drain.
Heat oven to 3500. Arrange ribs in shallow
pan (at least 13x9 inches) or in broiler pan.
Prepare Spicy Barbecue Sauce; pour over
ribs. Bake uncovered 1 3/4 to 2 hours, turning
and spooning sauce over ribs occasionally,
until tender. 4 to 6 servings. -
JESSIE'S SPICY BARBECUE SAUCE
3/4 cup ketchup
3/4 cup water
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons liquid smoke
2 tablespoons ground chili pepper
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 teaspoon pepper
Mix all ingredients. About 2 cups sauce.
JOAN BOYLE'S BARBECUED RIBS
When Joan Boyle of Midland, Michigan,
wants to see her five grown sons, she fires up
the oven for this recipe and they come
running from miles around.
3 pounds pork spareribs or
pork loin back ribs
1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Joan's Barbecue Sauce (see below)
Heat oven to 4509. Cut ribs into serving
pieces; arrange in shallow pan (at least 13x9
inches) or in broiler pan. Sprinkle onion and
lemon juice over ribs, Bake ribs uncovered
20 to 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until
brown on all sides; drain.
Meanwhile, prepare Joan's Barbecue Sauce;
pour hot sauce over ribs. Reduce oven
temperature to 3500. Bake uncovered 1 3/4 to
2 hours, turning and spooning sauce over ribs
occasionally, until tender. 4 to 6 servings
JOAN'S BARBECUE SAUCE
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon celery salt or seed
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cups.water
Heat all ingredients to boiling in 2-quart
saucepan over medium heat, stirring
occasionally. About 3 1/2 cups sauce.
Thanks, ladies. You've proven once again that
nobody has cornered the market on good
barbecue. Now it's my turn to strut my
barbecue rtuff. Here are two,recipes from my
new Great Grilling cookbook. The first calls
for a rub, a seasoning mixture best applied to
meat with your very own fingers.
Write Betty at "Ask Betty-Crocker,"
One General Mills Blvd.,
Minneapolis, MN 55426,
or call toll free 1-888-ASK BETTY
BETTY'S GRILLED SOUTHWESTERN
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
8 pork loin or rib chips, about 1/2 inch
thick (about 2 1/2 pounds)
Mix all ingredients except pork. Cut outer
edge of fat on pork chop diagonally at 1-inch'
intervals to present curling (do not cut into
meat). Rub chili powder mixture evenly into
both sides of pork chops. Cover and
refrigerate at least 30 minutes but no longer
than 24 hours.
Heat coals or gas grill. Cover and grill pork
4 to 6 inches from medium heat 10 to 12
minutes, turning frequently, until slightly pink
when cut near bone. 8 servings.
This next recipe calls for swordfish, but any
firm fleshed fish like tunaor halibut is-
11/2 pounds tuna, swordfish, or halibut
steaks, 3/4 tb I inch thick
1/4 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon finely chopped gingerroot
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash of ground red pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
Lime wedges, if desired
If fish steaks are large, cut into 6 serving
pieces. Mix remaining ingredients except
lime wedges in shallow non-metal dish or
heavy-duty resealable plastic bag. Add fish,
turning to coat with marinade. Cover dish or
seal bag and refrigerate at least 30 minutes
but no longer than 2 hours. Heat coals or gas
grill. Remove fish from marinade; reserve
marinade. Cover and grill fish 4 to 6 minutes,
brushing 2 or 3 times with marinade and
turning once, until fish flakes easily with
fork. Discard any remaining marinade. Serve
fish with lime wedges. 6 servings.
A foot disorder that occurs far
more often in women than men is
Morton's neuroma. This is a'"growth
on a nerve, usually between the third
and fourth toes. Initially, a person
may feel a dull pain, a stinging or
burning sensation, but in time,
intense pain develops.
A neuroma of thigh type results
from pressure irritating the nerve.
The pressure may be caused by
metatarsal bones that are abnormal-
ly close to each other, but more often
tthe problem is caused by narrow
shoes that compress the forefoot and
thin soles that do not adequately,
cushion the feet
In some cases, ', f
the podiatrist can
pain by means of "'
injections, recommending more
suitable shoes and creating orthotic
shoe inserts to relieve pressure on
the affected area. Advanced cases
can be cured by surgical removal of
the. nerve growth. This usually is
done in the podiatrist's office.

of better foot care by:

Tip About Tips
By: James Taliaferro
Social Security Manager
Panama City Office
Many summer jobs involve,
tips as a part of the earnings.
While some workers think of tips
as "something extra," tips may be-
covered by Social Security and
can count for important credits
toward retirement, disability and
survivors benefits, and Medicare
If you work at a job where you'
make $20 or more per month in,
cash tips, that income is covered
by Social Security. That means
you and -your employer arei
required to pay Social Security
and Medicare taxes on this,
income. Reporting tips and other
income now will ,mean more.
Social Security benefits for you,
and your family later when you'
retire, or if you become disabled
When you earn tips, you
must keep a daily record of the
tips you receive. This includes
tips received in cash directly from
customers or from other employ-
ees and tips added to a credit card
charge. When your tip income
totals $20 or more in a month,
you are requireet to report the
amount to your employer. Your
employer is responsible for
reporting the correct tip and wage
information to the Social Security
Administration and the Internal
You should check your Social
Security earnings record at least
every three years to make sure all
your earnings are reported. You
, can do this by calling Social
Security's toll-free number--l
800-772-1213--and asking for a

The statement will tell you
what earnings have been reported
to your record, as well as how
much you could get in benefits :if
you retire or become disabled or
for your family when you 'die. If
you' see a mistake, yoli should
contact us and report it
When you report your tips,
you should remember that the
additional benefits generated will
be there when they are most
needed-when your earnings are
reduced by retirement, death or
disability. That's when you'll be
glad you thought about your

Street Work Was
Nine Years In
The rejuvenation project
for Reid Avenue didn't just
happen. It is the culmina-
tion of several years of hard
work and planning by a
committee which grew out
of the Merchants Associa-
With Wayne Taylor as
chairman of the committee,
work was begun way back
in 1988. The merchants
knew Reid Avenue needed
some attention paid to it, if
.the street was ever to regain
its attraction as a street for
commerce in Port St. Joe.
But, what to do? What
theme should the commit-
tee follow? How do you
redecorate and point out
the city's historic past, in
Enter, the University
The committee had
heard about the revitaliza-
tion of Fernandina Beach
and Chipley, so they made
treks to each of these cities
to find out how they had
managed the dramatic
change in their cities.
The common denomina-
tor in both instances was
the surveying and planning
by the University of Florida
Department of Urban
Planning. So, a bee line was
made to contact that
department and its director,
Dr. Joseph Weismantel.
Dr. Weismantel made
several visits to Port St. Joe,
telling the committee of the
possibilities for change and
informing them that it
wouldn't be free! Up-front
money would be needed to
pay students for redesign-

Financing Was A
The merchants put up $3,000
of their own money and talked the
city into contributing another
$6,000 in order to get started.
The project was turned over to
Dr. Peter Prugh for the nuts and
bolts of the idea design back in
1991. Dr. Prugh pointed out the
need for underground infrastruc-
ture before anything could be
accomplished. This work turned
out to be extensive and nearly
scuttled the project.
With the city commission
pledging to finance the drainage
project, the county pledging to set
aside $25,000 of its paving bond
money to re-surface the street
and a grant for $600,000, the
committee set to work.
After the University of Florida
d e p art m e nt
arrived at the con-
cept to be followed
of what Reid
look like, local
on the task of
designing the dec-
.- .. i
plantings, and designed the
unique drainage system.
You see the results today .
some nine years later.

worked diligently through the
years on this project are: Wayne
