Wewahitchka Going to the Polls to Select Mayor Tuesday


Residents of the City of We-
wahitchka will go to the polls
Tuesday of next week. Voters will
face a slim ballot, so far as candi-
dates for office are concerned.,
There will be only two on the bal-
lot, both seeking the office of
Mayor for a two year term.
Incumbent Mayor Ray Dick-
ens will face opposition from Rev.
Charles Pettis, who is making his
second run for office. Pettis made
an attempt at the office of, com-
missioner in 1995. Dickens is a
veteran office-holder in city gov-
ernment, having served several
terms as Mayor.
TWO FRANCHISES.
In addition to the selection of
a mayor, residents will be also
casting a decision on granting or
refusing two utility franchises.
During the past year, St. Joe
Natural Gas Company has ex-


tended its pipeline distribution
system to Wewahitchka and is
now seeking a 15 year non exclu-
sive franchise to serve the city.
St. Joseph Telecommunica-
tions is also asking for a 15-year
non exclusive franchise to contin-
ue serving the city with telephone
:service.
A third question on the ballot
will ask the question should We-
wahitchka build a new city hall or
should it remodel the present
building to meet the city's ex-
panding office needs.
A fourth question placed on
the ballot will be a decision 'on
whether or not to amend the city
charter, defining corporate limits,
power and jurisdiction, defining
city commissioners, elections, ad-
ministration and continuation of

Industrial Park Bids
The county received bids to
construct the Gulf County
Industrial Park complex to be
located south of Wewahitchka, off
Highway 71.
KMT. Inc. submitted the low
bid, of the four received, with a
base bid of $899.999.99.,
The complex is being funded
by a $715.000 Economic Develop-
ment Administration grant based
on 75%6 grant funds ($536.350)

uled to go back on line.
The mill's number 2 paper
machine is scheduled to com-
mence production two weeks lat-
er on September 29.
Allen said morale is good and
everybody Is eager to get the mill
operating once more. "We have
over 900.000 man hours of opera-
tion without a disabling accident
logged in and we're all eager to
pass the one million safe hour
- mark." the mill executive-said.
"If we have no glitches to hin-
der us In preparing to make
paper once again, we should be
able to maintain our published
schedule for resuming full opera-
tions," he continued.
Allen said management con-
tinues to explore every avenue
possible to cut operating expens-
es in order to better guarantee
continuity of operations once pro-
duction is started once more. 'We
have a 'high cost' paper mill here.
It is one of those things which
caused us 'to be forced to take
some down time the past five
months. We've formed an efficien-
cy team made up of labor and
management to deal with this
problem," Allen continued. "Right
now we're concentrating on
achieving an orderly start up and
preparing to begin accepting
wood in the next few days."
IMPROVEMENTS
As a hedge against future
shut downs, Florida Coast Paper
is making several changes in or-
der to be able to make a more di-
Versified product. A new 'head
box' is being installed on number
1 machine with a few other man-
ufactiuring changes scheduled to
be made. These changes are be-
ing made with the anticipation of
being able to make paper bag
stock in the near future. This will
allow the mill to be able to diver-
sify from its old stand-by, liner
board.
In the short haul, 'the new
'head box' will allow the mill to
improve the quality of its present
product, according to Allen.


x Work on College Progressing
According to Greg Walters, Job Superintendant for North Bay
Construction Company of Lynn Haven, crews are currently finishing the
second of three slabs for the buildings which will make up Gulf Coast
Community College's Gulf/Franklin Center. All three building's slabs
should be near or at completion stage within a week. Employees of the
construction company will begin erecting the steel structure in approxi-
mately six weeks. The projected completion date for the project is March,
1998.

Another Blow! 1


JUST WHEN WE WERE beginning to see a glimmer of light
at the end of the tunnel, along came an announcement last
Tuesday that the box plant was closing down its operations.
Their announcement was unlike that which accompanied the
closing of the paper mill for five months. The paper mill an-
nouncement was for an 'indefinite' period of time, but the box
plant closing revelation was for a very definite period-forever!
That was a very hard blow to assimilate, along with the other
announcements of job cessations we have been receiving on a
somewhat regular basis for the past several months.
It was hard to accept that this 85 or so individuals will be
without jobs by November. Sort of makes it hard to find any-
thing to be thankful about, doesn't it?

WE HAVE DEPENDED on the operation of the container
plant for nearly 50 years, now. Day in and day out, people who
worked there could depend on the doors opening up every day,
with a job ready and waiting for its, force of employees. We de-
pended on it and never even considered the status could be oth-
erwise, until, from out of the blue, without any warning, the an-
nouncement came that the doors were being closed and the
machinery moved out.
That's pretty definite!
As a matter of fact, it would be pretty hard to be more defi-
nite.
BUT, WE HAVE iXPksKI,NCED adversity several times dur-
ing the past year, so we should be accustomed to dealing with it
and the hardships it brings. We don't like it, but we should be
accustomed to dealing with it, just the same.
It isn't the end of the world, but the thing which makes it so
tragic is the number of people who work there who are less than
10 years from retirement. Where is a person in that condition
going to find another job which pays a wage comparable to what
the box plant pays? How.can he/she hope to build up so much
experience toward, another trade?
It can't be done. The closure will be a major hardship on this
type person, even if he/she happens to find an equal job replace-
ment. The anxiety in the meantime will, in some cases, be more
than they can bear.




Scallop Is King

SATURDAY IS TO BE A "first" for Port St. Joe. It is the
first--celebration, if you please- day honoring, or recognizing,
the scallop. Scallops are just a lowly shellfish which rests at the
bottom of St. Joseph Bay which have come to be considered a
delicacy at least the sweet, tender muscle which fastens its
two halves of shell together has been.
We're going to feature a special day for the scallop here in
Port St. Joe this Saturday. We're going to indulge in several ac-
tivities- to celebrate this event and educate us iin how to preserve
the scallop as one of our more permanent attractions. We're. go-
ing to learn of myriad ways to cook and prepare this simple
muscle to eat. We're going to enjoy eating several varieties of
seafood [and possibly an equally as insignificant hot dog and
maybe a hamburger or two].
But we're going to enjoy the day in the only way we humans
know to enjoy a special day by indulging ourselves to fun
and frivolity!
IT WILL ALSO MARK the pending end of this year's short
scallop season, which has attracted so many people to our bay
and its rich harvest. The scallop has become so prized that thou-
sands have brought their boats, canoes, or anything that floats
to Port St. Joe, entering the bay in search of the popular scallop.
It was a short season, but it was an enjoyable occasion, fill-
ing the summer months with an activity everyone could join in to
make life more tolerable.
What more fitting thing could we do to recognize an activity,
or creature, which has given so many so much fun and relaxing
activity which the entire family can become involved in?
It has been an enjoyable summer, despite the heat, the in-
sects, the uncertainty of4the times. The -scallop has contributed
to making it an enjoyable summer. It is therefore fitting that we
each and every one join in this special day, recognizing the scal-
lop!

when left completely on our own.
I have sincerely thought a couple
of times over the years that she
was on one of those -"way out yon-
der" wavelengths-but before I
could check it out. one of the boys
would need something.
You think about it. We have
not said a word or took a trip or
combed our hair or gone to the
bathroom or sat down for a quiet
dinner or had a thought in twen-
ty-two years without one, and*
usually both, of the, boys stuck
between us. Actually, we haven't
ever had a quiet dinner ......
She may say to-ma-to ......

Cathy and I were married in
June-or July? of 1974. I didn't
really know all that much about
her. She seemed like a nice girl.
Her grandaddy had a little money,

Josh was born November 29,
1975. Looking back on it now, I
cannot, for the life of me, remem-
ber that year and a half without
kids. It just seems like we said "I
do" and the boys were there. I


know Cathy and I have been extra
busy at the task of raising chil-
dren our whole marriage.
What are we going to do
without them?
I know we can't eat out. We
have absolutely no experience in
picking a place. For the past
twenty years that's always been
taken care of for us. "There's a
McDonald'sx Dad! Let's eat!" I
heard that cry every time we left
the house for ten years. I tried
once in Montgomery to make a'
suggestion, "Boys, how about
something different? Let's try that
restaurant across the--"
"No, McDonald'sl"
"We want the E. T. glasses!"
If I could have gotten my
hands around Ronald's throat ...

They finally outgrew the,
happy meals. They graduated to
pizza and then, bless their ever
loving hearts, to barbeque.
Cathy and I drove to Panama
City by ourselves last week,
picked up a picture frame and a
blade for my edger and came
home hungry. We couldn't make a
decision on Where to eat. The

Signs That Women Control the Wealth of the


ARE WOMEN THE ones who
make all the important decisions
in this world? Evidence would
point to this being true. I, nor anyI
other man who labors under the
opinion that his gender makes-.all
the decisions of any importance
in this old world, hardly accepts
this arrangement.
But, I am grudgingly begin-
ning to accept the fact that we
men have completely lost all con-
trol at some point in time. The
women are beginning to persuade
us that, indeed, the hand which
rocks the cradle rules the world.
More and more evidence is show-
ing up to persuade me that this is
a fact Somewhere, or at some-
time, the weaker[?] sex has corn-
pletely and emphatically, taken
over.
They have subtly assumed a
headlock hold on everything
which matters. If it is an indica-
tor of where the decisions are ul-
timately made, women control it.

about their choice of men to mar-i
ry. The little girl proves this. Shel
would wed a man 10 times her;
age just because she ,loves him!

BACK TO CONTROL of the'
purse strings. I read where wom-
en control 80% of the wealth of
the nation. With a track record
like that, why shouldn't they con-;
trol the family purse strings?
I've said before that most ad-I
vertising Is aimed at persuading
the ladies to buy! buyl buy!

stance. How many of you men
out there have possession of the
family checkbook? I'll wager there
aren't very many of you still
around. If there are, how many of
these checkbooks are balanced?
How many are 'up-to-date with
their entries?
I think it no accident that
most advertising is aimed at the
distaff side of the family. It starts
at an early age, too. Who is Bill
Cosby's Jell-o pudding pitches
aimed at? A little girl!
Little boys, including Mikey,
are featured in the hard choice of
deciding what breakfast cereal to
eat. A girl Is featured with her
grandpa, deciding the weightier


One thing isn't aimed at the
ladies, however.
Advertising for new automo-
biles is aimed at the men. The
women help we men decide which
car the family will invest a year's
wages in. but the man decides
the old car is worn out at
50,000 miles or so.
I guess that proves the man
of the family as a rule, can't be
trusted with carrying the purse.
He can be persuaded with the
making of a decision which puts
the usual family in debt for five or
six years. Give them their due,
the women would never make a
decision like that.
I'm a prime example of this
fact. I have been telling my wife
for a couple of years that she
needs a new car. The old car she
drives has less than 50,000 miles
on it, but it is seven years old.
"No, I don't" she emphatically
informs me, and the matter still
stands at that point. She doesn't
think she needs a new car, so she


isn't going to get a new car!
Women, with a family, are
usually frugal women when it
comes to necessary items such as
a new car, a new boat, the latest,
model shotgun, or one of the oth-
er necessities of life.

WOMEN HAVE A way of ex-
erting their control over the purse
strings, too., Sometimes. this
method isn't very subtle, either. I
pity the poor slob who has to ask
his wife for $10.00 to purchase a
package of underwear he needs.
A man ought to have possession
of enough 'walking around' mon-
ey to at least give the indication
that he is somewhat responsible,
don't you think?

A comic strip in Sunday's
paper aptly describes why women
are entrusted with the family for-
tune or why they have taken
control. In For Better or Worse,
Elizabeth and her mother have
gone to a sale in a mall. They look
over everything, try everything


Vorld

on, feel of everything and after a
couple of hours looking, come
away empty-handed, with the ex-
planation that they were just
browsing.
A man would have purchased
something the first 30 seconds he
spent in the store if he was
allowed to have possession of
some cash or the family credit
card.

WHY IS THE national debt so
large and difficult to bring under
control?
I have reluctantly come to the
conclusion that it is because men
are in charge of the national
purse strings or the White
House VISA card.
But make no mistake about
it; if it can be charged and is on
sale, the ladies will buy it; in a
heartbeat
Almost as quickly as a man
will buy a $30,000 'muscle' car to
ride on the beach. The difference
is, he needs itl

Citizens Federal Savings Bank of Port St. Joe Scallops from Page i


Ranked as Top Performer by National Regulator Following qa Three-Year Study


Citizens Federal Savings Bank of Port
St. Joe was cited as one of the .nation's
most consistently profitable institutions as
a result of a comprehensive three-year fed-.
eral study.
Citizens Federal was listed among 102
"highly profitable thrifts" by the Office of
Thrift Supervision, a federal regulator that
oversees the 1,300 institution industry..
The OTS identified the select group of 102
institutions by studying only those institu-
tions that' generated return on average
assets (ROA) well above industry averages.
(The high performer- s achievedd ROA of 100
basis points or: more in each quarter stud-
ied from 1994 through the first quarter of:


1997. The industry average ROA is 73
basis points.)
The study showed that Citizens Federal'
and its top performing peers are
community-based lenders that are highly
efficient and maintain high asset; quality..

Taxing authorities within Gulf
County will be taking' the final
steps before ,formally 'approving
their 1997-98 budget figures over
the next few weeks.
As most of us know from our
recently received trim notices;
tentative budgets have been set
by all five local taxing entities-
Board of Gulf County
Commission, Gulf County School
Board, City of Port St. Joe, City of
Wewahitchka and fire districts.
According to Florida law, after
those tentative budgets are set
trim notices are sent to property
owners stating what current taxes
would be based on the proposed
millage rates from the local gov-
ernments. Taxpayers then have
the opportunity to voice input, if
they so desire, through two public
hearings required by the state.
The cities of Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka will be first to pre-
sent their budgets before the pub-
lic. Both will hold meetings on
Wednesday, September 3rd. Port
SL Joe will hold theirs at 5:15
p.m. at the fire station meeting
room and Wewahitchka at 6:30
p.m. at City Hall.
Gulf County will hold its pub-
lic hearing Thursday, September
4th at 5:30 at the county commis-
sion meeting room. Gulf County
School Board will meet at 5:1'
Tuesday, September 9th at' the
school board meeting room.
Notices of the second public
hearings' dates, times and loca-
tions will be posted in coming
issues of The Star as those dates
are set.
After the second meeting.
when final millage rates have
been approved. Gulf County
Property Appraiser Kesley Colbert
will certify the tax rolls and tax
bills will be mailed by Gulf County
Tax Collector Eda Ruth Taylor in
November.
Port St. Joe Budget
City Clerk Pauline Pendarvis
said port St. Joe will hold the line
at 5.2408 mills for the upcoming
year.
They have a tentative budget
of approximately $13 million dol-
lars with both the city and

for the Kids


Sheriff Cautions Drivers to Motor
Carefully Over the Cities' Streets
The Gulf County Sheriffs Office would like to alert visitors
and residents in the area that "SCHOOLS IN" and motorists
should therefore drive with extreme caution. Sheriff
McKeithen asks that everyone do their part to help law
enforcement officers take care of our children.
"Please slow down, watch for school zones, and obey traf-
fic sigdis," McKelthen.stressed.:' -
: McKeithe~n rd 'rts that since school has started the
Sheriffs Office has received numerous complaints of speed-
ing, running stop signs and even reckless driving.
The Gu-f County Sheriffs Office is obligated to protect
children, as well as other citizens. Traffic problems, unlike
many law violations, can be controlled or even eliminated by
the citizens.
Most traffic violators are not "criminals", they're just plain
hard-working people who, while operating their vehicle,
become distracted with the day's business, the children
rustling in the back seat or other thoughts not relating to
what's in their hands at the time.
Therefore, the Sheriffs Office, as well as other law enforce-
ment agencies in the county, are asking that drivers through-
out the county--especially in traveling through school zones
and bus stops-take more careful notice of their actions while
behind the wheel.
McKelthen added. "Please take the time to think about it
and help us take care of your children. We assure you that we
have a lot more to do than write traffic tickets."

Wewahitchka finds itself in

their millage rate by a little more
than half. Last year, the city's rate
was 5.30 mills, but this year
S they're proposing a rate -of 2.60
mills. "
For the most part this is due
to interest funds generated
through accumulated savings
Invested in certificates of deposit.
City Manager Donald

funds coupled with contracting
with the Gulf County Sheriffs

approaching the 70% completion mark following nearly four
months of work by Churchwell Construction Company. He esti-

all new water and sewer lines stubbed out, ready for connection,
at property lines followed by a clean-up of the rights-of-way and

A substantial portion of the
support given each of Port St. Joe
High School's athletic programs is
drawn from the Shark 100 Club.
The level of their success,
under the leadership of Athletic
Director Chuck Gannon, relies to
a large'degree on the community

Program in Gulf Takes Up Some of the Slack Left by Welfare Program

Financed by Jessie Ball duPont Trust Fund Grant and Administered by Port St. Joe Ministerial Association, Aid Targets Unfortunates


James Wiley, assistant pastor
of the Oak Grove Assembly of
God Church, told the Rotary Club
of a new program which offers as-
sistance to perIons and organiza-
tions in need, last Thursday at
their noon meeting.
The program, designed to
take up some of the slack left by
a declining welfare program, is
operated cooperatively by all
churches in Port St. Joe, which


has membership in the Port St.
Joe Ministerial Association.
"The program .was first
thought of in 1990 by Rev. Jerry
Huft, utilizing the Jessie Ball du-
Pont Trust Fund for funding," he
said. "Since that tile, the Mini-
sterial Alliance has received five
annual installments of $50,000
over a period of five years. We are
entering our last year of the grant
and have applied for another,"

the speaker said.-
"Last year we placed $74,000
into the community from this
source," he said.
The funds are used strictly to
help people in need. 'We help
people purchase refrigerators,
ranges, pay electric bills, heating
bills, repair homes, build wheel
chair ramps, buy 'medicines,
health aids, lift chairs, and even
helped one person purchase' an
artificial leg prosthesis. The only
requirements are that the person
must have a real need for this
help and have no means with


which to pay for it themselves,"
Wiley said.
The acts of mercy are aimed
primarily 'at the elderly, youth
and the handicapped. "We get an
awful loti of referrals through
HRS," he said.
The Ministerial Alliance also
uses the fund to help organiza-
,jions such as the Senior Citizens
with their transportation pro-
,grain, and their meals on wheels.
"'Here at the beginning of
school, we are also operating a
'Kid's Closet' out of the old WJOE
radio station building, across


Niles Road from the Port St. Joe
High School. We furnish chil-
dren's clothing to youths who do
not have adequate clothing to
wear to school," according to the
speaker.
The 'Kid's Closet' accepts do-
nations of good new or used
clothing or school supplies to be
distributed in this manner. "We
have helped several students this
year, to attend school, dressed
neatly and presentably," the
speaker said.
Wiley put in a pitch for local
donations to the fund, also.


"While we are currently re-
applying for a new grant, we
must furnish matching money. In
the past this match has been
supplied by the member church-
es, but if there are any individu-
als who care to help, it would be
appreciated." The match ratio re-
quired is 15-1.

'97-'98


Shark Talk,
By: Natasha Powell I


Students rush to and from
each class,' barely escaping being
tardy. Everyone is finally certain
of where their lockers are, and
amidst a flurry of last minute
studying and homework, most of
the students are getting back into
the routine of school. With new
faculty and new policies, the
1997-'98 school year is well under
way for Port St. Joe High School.
Several important changes
have been made regarding the
grading scale and the require-
ments for participat-
ing in extracurricu-
lar athletic events.
Among the most
important of these is
the new grading
scale, which has
been been recently
revised by the
Florida legislature.
The changes in the /
.scale are as follows:
A=94- 100; B=85-93;
C=77-84; D=70-76;
and, F=0-69.
When asked about the effects
of this new policy on the student
body, Catherine Barfield, assis-
tant principal, replied, "I'd like to
think there's truly not going to be
much difference ... It depends on
how seriously the kids take that
[the new scale]."
She also said, "The kidsmak-
ing A's and B's and C's under the
old -scale -are still going to make
A's and B's and C's under the new
scale." However, there was con-
cern on her part about those stu-
dents currently making below
average grades.
The state legislature has also
made the participation 'require-
ments more stringent for
extracurricular sports. All stu-


dents wanting to participate in the
athletic program:
Must have been in school
during the 1996-97 school year
during which they earned credit
in five full subjects, at least four
on their first attempt and the fifth
in summer school, and main-
tained a 1.6 grade point average
to be eligible during the fall
semester of the 1997-98 school
year (Section 232.425, Florida
Statutes); and
Must earn and
maintain a cumula-
tive grade point aver-
age of 2.0 or better in
all courses taken
after July 1, 1997 to
be eligible during the
spring semester of
`... a the 1997-98 school
year and each
semester thereafter.
Going into the
third week, the
atmosphere at the
high school is quite busy, with
most of the clubs striving to pre-
pare. for the coming year. The
school will host an Open House
on Thursday, September 16, at
5:00 p.m. Progress reports will go
out on Thursday, September 11.
It's almost test time again for
the tenth and eleventh graders.
All sophomores and juniors need
to register for the PSAT in guid-
ance at the high school. The regis-
tration fee is $8.50.
The Shark football season will
officially begin this Friday, August
29, with the Kick-Off Classic. The
Sharks will face Liberty County at
home at 7:30 p.m., ET. Let's keep
that home field advantage and
come out and support our
Sharksl!

"The Block" ...
Students are in classes, set-
tled in for the nine :week grind..
Teachers are in place Lrying to
establish a pattern that will help
them and their students accom-
plish, what is supposed to be
learned in nine weeks.
SNinety minutes a period, four
periods'a day for high schoolers--
if it sounds a little "intense" it's
because it is intense. But, once
the initial rush settles down and
students realize they only have to
prepare for four classes a day.
instead of six, most report they "
prefer the "block" schedule.
I believe the most common
complaint I've heard is some
classes are only offered once in
the schedule, still forcing stu-
dents to sometimes choose
between something they must or
need to take and something they
might want to take.
Unfortunately, that is a prob-
lem in a small school with limited
staff, but it was also a problem
with the old six period schedule.
The schedules are drawn up to
serve the largest number of stu-
dents possible, but I've never seen
a schedule yet that could satisfy
every single student every time.
:'Juniors are being pre-tested
this week to begin preparing for
the HSCT. The official test is the
first week In October, so teachers
only have between now and then
to prepare students for the test.
Convincing them that they must
pass this test to graduate is some-
times tough-but pass it they
must, and it is a difficult test of
math and communications skills.
Thursday night the Gators
break the ice by travelling to
Quincy to play Munroe High
School in a "Classic" at 6:00 p.m.
(central). The scrimmage is a good
test, but the trip out of town is
important, because new players
usually forget to pack some-
thing-helmet, shirt, shoes, etc.,
and this trip is a good shake-
down cruise. I believe St. Joe will
entertain Liberty County in a sim-
ilar "Classic" Friday night.
Cross country and volleyball
are about ready to start, but I
haven't been able to get schedules


from the coaches yet. Maybe next
weekI
Last year, our teams earned
honors for three coaches: Jay
Bidwell, State 2-A Cross Countiy
Coach of the Year; Charles
Fortner, Big Bend Softball Coach
of the Year; and, Jay Kearce,
selected by the Florida Athletic
Coaches Association as the Class
2-A Region II Coach of the Year.
Maybe -this year those elusive
state titles will be ours.
Thanks big time goes to Wewa
State Bank for donating eight
magazine subscriptions to our
library, and Arizona Chemical for
donating newspaper subscrip-
tions to several classes at WHS.
Pitts Pharmacy recently donated
new spiral notebooks for students
that need assistance.
It's not just athletic programs'
that need your help. Dollar short-
ages hurt programs. You can help
by offering to buy maps, supplies,
etc. Give it some thought, and call
if you want to donate towards a
specific item or program.

We've been dwelling on the
faithfulness of God and our depen-
dence on Him in this column this
year. Today's verse is from I
Thessalonians 5:24, "The one who
called you is faithful and He will do
it." We are claiming this promise
for the 1997-98 school year.
Don't forget to visit our booth
at the Scallop Festival on
Saturday, August 30.. You will be
able to learn a little more about
Faith Christian while you enjoy a
sno-cone for the low price of 50
cents.
Parents, if you haven't filled in
the sheet with 10 names and
addresses,. please do so. The
names given us will be sent a let-
ter from Lifeline-Amerivision, a
telephone company begun and run
by Christian people. The letter will
tell them that if they switch to
Lifeline, 10 percent of their long
distance phone costs will be sent
to Faith Christian at no cost to
them, (the consumer).
In fact, I have found, that I
save money on my phone bill and
also help the school. If we have
1,500 names the letter will go out
at no cost to us. We would like to
have at least 10 names from each
parent. Just think what it would
mean to Faith Christian if several
hundred families make this
change!
Also, we need volunteers to
help copy names and addresses of
the records of former students.
Perhaps some of you who are read-

ers but not parents would like to
switch to Lifeline or to volunteer to
help with names and addresses.
Just call the office at 229-6707.

September 4 we will begin our

raising effort by our students.

get into the Christmas spirit and
order your cards now. Cards are

end of October in plenty of time for
the holidays. Thank you for your
support.

This week's column has been

MEDITATIONS OF. A
Jlountrij -rgad r

By LOWELL F. ADAMS

"old" man?

"..Iam an oldman.."
(Luke 1:18)


A LOCAL ORGANIZATION is named Council
on Aging. It is a great facility for it serves old people, uh
pardon me, I mean "Senior Citizens", with services that
they might have difficulty providing for themselves.
At what age are we at our very best? Wouldn't it be
great if we could stay as we are or were at that age? One
day we will, if we belong to Jesus. In heaven there will be
no ageing or growing old and feeble. There will be no
illness nor any other worrisome problem. Only the joy and
eternal happiness that the human mind at this time, is
incapable of fully understanding.
I am 'not a member of the Council on Aging, for I am
only 84. Many years ago, when I was about 40 or so, and
pastor of the Highland View Baptist Church, one morning
I suddenly got the message that I was already old. I was
walking down the street when I passed two little fellows
and stopped to chat with them. When I walked on I heard
one of them ask the other, "Who was that old man?"
I have seen some tremendous changes during my old
years. Alcohol was not much of a problem when I was
growing up. I was fully grown before I saw any alcoholic;
beverage. Now it seems a great problem. When I was -a
youngster churches did not allow applause during worship
services. That started after movie makers taught us how on
television. There was plenty of joy in the services. but no
foolishness. The Holy Word says "to God be all the
glory" but most of the time we tend to glorify those who
entertain us. Jesus said God's House should be a House of
Prayer, but we have made it a house of entertainment on
many occasions. Jesus threw traders out of the temple but
now performers often sell their wares right in His church.
There is not. enough space to list all the worldly
changes that have invaded our homes and God's House of
Prayer, but most "Senior Citizens" like me, will no doubt
remember those halcyon days of reverence and worship.

Dear Counselor:
I have a very defiant and
mean 13 year old daughter who
thinks she .s going on, 18. One
minute she vants to be close with
me. and then my daughter wants
t&be wvithfiher friends because she
says it's "uncool to hang with
mom".
She constantly tells me what
to do and if I try to tell her no or
discipline her, she throws a lit and
does what she wants to anyway or
says "so and so gets to do it". I amn
a single parent, and I miss the'
closeness I oAce 'had: with my
daughter. Please help!
Mean Mom
Dear Mean Moi,
Your daughter is experiencing
significant changes in the areas of.
physical, emotional, intellectual,
academic, social and spiritual
development. Puberty, along with
confusion of what. role to play, a
little girl or a young adult, is con-
fusing to not only you, but your
daughter.
You. are experiencing the
teenage years with your 13-year-
old where girls 'are having far
more troubles than they had a
decade ago, due to the cultural
changes in otir society. Childhood
years .have grown shorter, and
now girls are' having' a harder,
"transition into young adulthood
where responsibility and self-
identity are essential, but incom-
prehensible.,
'Four general reactions are"
usually noticed when teens react
to the )cultural pressures. They,
can conform, withdraw, get
depressed or angry.'
I It sounds as if your daughter
is trying -to conform, but she is


getting angry and blaming you.
True self-identity is very diffi-
cult for teenagers to keep grasp of.
Peer pressure is surrounding your
daughter. Encouraging self-
respect, and leadership, will give
your daughter options when she
makes realizations that she does-.
n't need to do something just
because a friend is.
.Also, redefining and reviewing
the house rules to her, along with -
the consequences of breaking the
rules, will make it more struc-
tured when she tries to take the
parent role away from you. Do not:
let your teen do what. she wants
due to the tantrum she -throws.
,, Remember "your. control: and, -
boundaries you have defined' as
the adult. Closeness will possibly.
return once- your daughter can
identify and come to accept her
changes. .
Possibly family counseling
could also assist you and 'your
daughter, especially if the situa-
tion progresses further in a nega-.
tive direction. Please call 227-
1145 if you need to discuss this
further or would like to arrange
services.
Sincerely,
Melissa Ramsey, B.S.

Broad Research Agenda To Aid Persian Gulf Veterans Is Published


The Persian Gulf Veterans
Coordinating Board, composed of
the secretaries of the
Departments of Defense, Health
and Human Services and
Veterans Affairs, has sent
,Congress its annual report on
research outlining more than 90
federally supported projects
investigating the health problems
of Gulf War veterans.
The Coordinating Board was
established by President Clinton
in January 1994 to respond to the
health concerns of Gulf War veter-
ans. The Board's Research
Working Group, chaired by the
Department of Veterans Affairs, is
responsible for developing the
research response to Gulf War

Mexican foods are increasing in pop-

We're all familiar with burritos and
enchiladas, and even dishes like gaz-
pacho a spicy cold vegetable soup
- are becoming more common. But
the sweet side of these cuisines is an
equally delicious area to bxplore.
Flan, a silky baked custard, is a tra-
ditional dessert made memorable by
flavors like cinnamon and vanilla
which are indigenous to Spain and
Mexico.
For tradition with a new twist, try
Classic Honey Flan. This simple,
creamy.custard is bathed with the
warmth of golden honey. With just

nication.
The Research Working Group
has reviewed proposals of"
research Investigators competing
for federal grant funds to ensure
that priority is accorded research
addressing veterans' concerns.
The Coordinating Board and its
Research Working Group also
ensure maximum coverage of
research dollars by guarding
against unnecessary. duplication
in research approaches, by pro-
moting communication among
researchers, and by articulating a
vision for closing gaps in scientif-
ic understanding of the health
problems of Gulf War veterans.

The newly released 1996
"Annual Report To Congress:
Federally-Sponsored Research on
Persian Gulf Veterans' Illnesses"
supplements an annual strategic
plan on key Gulf War veterans
health research questions-and
approaches to answering them-
by providing a description of
important research to date, find-
ings, and studies in progress.
The new Annual Report, to
Congress, the fourth produced by
the Coordinating Board in
response to Public Law 102-585,
differs from the 1995 summary in
that it includes non-government
funded research published in
peer-reviewed scientific journals
since the last report.

During 1996 and into early
1997, several research papers
reporting on studies of Persian
Gulf veterans' health have
appeared in the scientific litera-
ture, important additions to the
expanding knowledge of the
nature, causes, and potential
treatment of Gulf War veterans'
illnesses. Summary reviews of'
individual studies are included in.
the annual report.
The annual report lists mile-
stones anticipated in 1997,
including a follow-on physical
examination phase of a joint.
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention and University of
.Iowa-sponsored study, the first
Slarge-scale population-based
study df illnesses in Gulf War vet-
erans, as well as a contract for a
physical examination phase of
another major population-based
study by the Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA).
Additional future milestones
mentioned in the report include
scientific and programmatic
review and award of new
research, development of
research strategies for under-,
standing the possible effects of
chemical warfare nerve agent
exposure, and anticipated reports
by the Presidential Advisory
Committee on Gulf War Veterans'
Illnesses.
Veterans with concerns about
their health or exposures in the
Persian Gulf may get information
and referrals to protocol medical
examinations via toll free num-
bers. For those who remain on
active duty today, the Department
of Defense operates .a hotline at
800-796-9699, while those who
have left active duty, including
deactivated reservists or National
Guard members, may receive
assistance from VA at 800-749-
8387.
The military also staffs an,
incident reporting hotline at 800-
.472-6719 where individuals may
report information they believe is
pertinent to investigations of
events that may have bearing on
the health of Gulf War veterans.

Harry R. McDonald

Florida Man Elected
Nat'I DAV Commander
Hahy-R. McDonald, Jr., a vet-
eran of 28 years of military ser-
vice, was elected National
Commander of the million-mem-
ber Disabled American Veterans
(DAV) during the organization's
1997 National Convention at the
Las Vegas Hilton.
A native of Pensacola, Mr.
McDonald enlisted in. the U.S.
Navy in 1945. He served on three
ships in the Far East during his
Navy service. In 1949, he left the
Navy and launched a long career
in the U.S. Army. The next two
and a half decades saw Mr.
McDonald handling a variety of
increasingly responsible assign-
ments around the world, Includ-
ing tours in,Korea and Vietnam.
Having begun his military
career as an enlisted man, he
climbed through the ranks, even-
tually earning a commission as
an officer. He held the rank of
captain-and a chestful of mill-
tary decorations, including the
Bronze Star-when he was dis-
charged due to service-connected
disability in 1973.
Mr. McDonald joined the DAV
immediately after leaving the
armed forces, and has held a vari-
ety of appointed and elected posi-
tions as a life member of DAV
Chapter 57 in Crestview. He
served as DAV Department of
Florida Commander in 1984-85.
Mr.N McDonald served on the
DAV's National Executive
Committee from 1985 to 1987. He
served one year on the National
Finance Committee and was a ,
member of the National Interim
Employment Committee in 1992-
93.
Mr. McDonald and his wife,
Merallyn Ann, are the parents of
two grown daughters who are
DAV Auxiliary life members and a
son who is an Army Sergeant
First Class and DAV life member.
The McDonalds live in Crestview.


Nibbles don't have to be no-
nos. Fast foods and snack foods
can be healthful-if you use them
to teach your kids good eating
' habits.
Your American Heart
Association suggests that healthy
children over age two eat various
foods, but not consume more
than 30 percent of their total calo-
ries from fat.
Your children eat high-sweet,
high-fat foods because they see
them a lot at social events.
They're also rewarded with sweets
for eating healthful foods. This
sends mixed messages to your
kids.
Eating habits are a central
part of any culture. So try to
change the culture. Producers are
beginning to respond to consumer
demands. They are selling uiore
foods lower in total fat, saturated
fat and cholesterol. And schools
around the country are adding
more low-fat items, fruits and
vegetables to cafeteria menus.
Studies show children get
about 20 percent of their daily
saturated fat from baked goods
and snacks. Including chips.
Companies that make chips.
cookies and crackers are begin-
ning to switch from highly satu-
rated tropical oils (such as
coconut and palm) and lard to
more healthful unsaturated veg-
etable oils such as soybean and
canola. But you have to read food
labels to find them.
Here are some AHA sugges-
tions to encourage your children
to eat more healthfully:
v Use ground turkey-without
skin-instead of hamburger
meat.
V Use lower-fat varieties of
cheese instead of regular
cheese, and low-fat or skim
milk instead of whole milk.
V At snack time, use low-fat or
non-fat yogurt and substitute
low-fat cheeses for high-fat
cheeses. .
Vary how you use fruits and
vegetables for your children.
Kids tend to like raw fruits
and vegetables more than
cooked.
V Help your children learn -to
read labels so they can find
the baked goods that have
unsaturated oils.
V Limit high-fat foods with little
nutritional value-so-called

"empty calorie" foods-in your
child's daily diet. This is better
than forcing your child onto a
restricted diet that adults with
weight or cholesterol problems
might follow. In general, chil-
dren need more daily calories
than adults because they're
growing. Limit the amount of
saturated fat, which comes
from animal products and
tropical oils.
These are Just a -few of the
valuable food lessens you can
teach your children. Give yourself

Question:


j ANOTHER SERVICE OF THE STAR


Have construction or

house repair questions?

ASK WADE

I am planning to build a new home and I
would like to know if the number of baths is
increasing in new homes being built now?
The number of baths in the average house is
rising, especially for those move-up families.
Today about 70% of homes being built in this
segment contain 2 1/2 baths.
I am preparing to sell my home in this area.
What room in my house is most likely to
make or break the sale?


Answer: The kitchen is the room in a house that rep-
resents a large part of the total investment.
Buyers recognize potential elsewhere, but if
they don't truly like the kitchen, they won't
buy the house!
