A little less than half of the
City of Wewahitchka's registered
voters turned out Tuesday to elect
a Mayor-Commissigner and
decide four other questions on the
ballot.
Long time, Mayor-Commis-


RAY DICKENS


sioner Ray Dickens was reelected
by a 56 percent margin. 390 to
297 for challenger Charles Pettis.
The voters also approved an
amendment to the city charter
which will allow revisions to the
city limits. The charter amend-
ment passed 375 to 255.
Voters overwhelmingly voted

cent margin. 416-234.
A franchise for SL Joseph
Telecommunications was narrow-
ly approved by the. voters, 349-

three voters abstained on the
issue.

The City of Wewahitchka
was to have received a state
grant in the amount of
$100.000. yesterday [Wednes-
day]. The grant funds were to
have been delivered by State.
Senator Pat Thomas in a short
ceremony at 10:00 a.m., to be
held at Lake Alice Park.
The grant funds were stipu-
. lated for use at the T. L. James
Park complex for improve-
ments and expansion of the fa-
cilities there. The funds came
from the state recreation fund.


Lake Levels
Declining on
ACF System
Lake levels on the Apalach-
icola-Chattahoochee-Fliht River
System will continue to decline
over the next several weeks due to
lack of significant rainfall in the
basin. Water taken from storage is
being used to support down-
stream needs.
The Corps of Engineers
expected the level of Lake Sidney
Lanier to be near elevation 1069.0
feet-mean sea level'by Labor Day.
Lanier will continue to fall
approximately one-half foot per
week afterwards until significant
rainfall occurs. ;'
The level at West Point Lake
was anticipated to fall to near ele-
vation 633.3 by Labor Day and
without significant rainfall the
lake could be near elevation 630
by the end of September.
The level of Lake Walter F.,
George should have been near
elevation 186.9 by last Monday
and will continue to fall to near
elevation 185 by the eQd of
September.


" At the first of this week. Lake
S Seminole was predicted to be near
76.5 and will be maintained in the
range of 76.0 to 76.5 over the next
few weeks.
Navigation on the Apalachi-
cola River will continue through
September 18. The stage at
Blountstown will be held at six
feet until the 18th and then will
be lowered to near three feet until
the start of the navigation window
scheduled for October'9 through
19.


Although the lakes are declin-
ing, recreational activities will still
be plentiful.

;' FCPC Wants Creation of

Non-Profit Corporation Out

Of Present City-Owned Position


Representatives of Florida
Coast Paper Company met last
Wednesday afternoon with Port
St Joe City Commissioners to for-
mally present ideas for transform-
ing the city's Wastewater
Treatment Plant into a non-profit
corporation.
The ultimate goal of this idea
is to reduce cost to the three
members of the tripartite commit-
tee (Florida Coast Paper
Company, Arizona Chemical and
the City of Port St. Joe) through
seeking approval to reclassify the
plant as an industrial wastewater
treatment facility.
A 16 page document outlining
the proposal was presented to the
city commissioners by a large
contingent of company officials,
consultants, and representatives
of the three workers' unions.
Gary Hartman. consultant to
Florida Coast, 'briefed the group
on the proposal during the work-
shop session stating the plant
could save between $1 and $2
million dollars annually on oper-
ating costs by making the transl.
tion.
Management of the city-
oWhed facility would also he dras-
tically affected under the Florida
Coast plan. It calls for members of
the tripartite to take a more active
role in management and opera-
tions of the plant. This would be
done through a management
board. Initially appointed, but
ultimately elected based on flow
contribution.:
Florida Coast Paper Company.
is the largest flow contributor,
accounting for nearly 95% of the
plant's total flow. Arizona
Chemical adds just over 3% and
Port St. Joe slightly more than
2%. ./
Management authority would
also regulate personnel with
respect to raises, bonuses, and
other' personnel management
aspects.
Commissioner Cautions
City commissioners are
studying the proposal, but are
being very cautious about their

response at this time. ,
Mayor Johnny Linton noted
that there appeared to be some
real advantage to going non-profit
and reclassifying the plant from
public use to industrial. But, his
initial impression would be for the
city, as owners of the plant, to
make the non-profit status steps
while maintaining their owner-
ship and management authority.
This would still result in operat-
ing savings -that would be passed
on to members of the tripartite,
yet also allow the city to plan for
future growth and industrial
development.
Commissioner Charles
Tharpe commented during the
board's August 19 meeting that
whatever decision was made it
would be a public issue based on
what the owners of the plant (the
citizens of Port St. Joe) wanted to
do.
The city constructed the plant
in 1972 and has operated it under
its ownership while overseen by
members of the tripartite commit-
tee. Final payment of the remain-
ing $2.75 million left owing on the
plant is scheduled to be made in
2002.
It has an estei'atId value' of
somewhere between $50 and $70
million dollars.
No future workshop dates are
currently set to further discuss
the ideas.
City Clerk Pauline Pendarvis
said the two parties have agreed
to respond in writing to several
questions on the proposal.

Local No. 3171 Begins


Picket of Phone Company


Local members of the
Communications Workers. of
America Union (Local #3171)
began an "information picket"
Tuesday morning at 8:00 at St.
Joseph Telephone Company.
According to Dottie White,
who has served as president of the
union for 25 years, the group is
organizing the picket to inform
the community of what is happen-
ing to local jobs which are being
eliminated by the company.
She said St. Joseph
Telephone has misled the public
about downsizing Jobs.
"Jobs are being contracted
out to Sprint (for operator service)
and Trawick Construction
Company of Chipley (to replace


linemen who were terminated),
both of whom are non-union con-
tractors," White said.
Members of Local 3171, as
well as non-union past company
employeeS who have been recent-
ly laid off, are joining forces in the
picket effort. One member of the
Papermakers Union from Panama
City was "walking the line"' .with
local picketers Tuesday showing
his support for the cause.
"These contractors do not and
will not pay taxes, nor own homes
here and have no children in
school, while the people who lost
their jobs will have to go else-
where to seek employment,"

New Blood

THE COUNTY'S NEWLY organized economic development
committee is scheduled to begin meeting in 10 days. In an at-
tempt to solve our unemployment problem. We wish them luck
in their endeavor. We need diversification, but most of all, we
need a stable source of good jobs, such as we once had. The only
way to have this source is to go after it.
We can't afford to sit around, waiting on 'Sir Galahad' to ride
up on his sturdy white steed and dump a blue chip Industry.
employing a couple hundred of our citizens, In our lap. L. G.
Buck, the Citizens Federal manager of many years ago, was a
resident of Apalachicola for many years prior. Buck used to say,
"The only thing wrong with Apalachicola is, they are waiting for
God to come riding down that river [the Apalachicola River], and
He ain't coming that way!"
That is partially the problem with Port St. Joe, today. We are
so lulled to sleep with the assurance that we can get what we
need out of the duPont family business-the St. Joe, Paper Com-
pany-until we have quit trying on our own and left it up to
them.
To paraphrase Mr. Buck's quotation; "It ain't gonna happen
that way!" We can kiss our former largesse by the SJPC, good-
bye.

WE NOTICE THE COMMITTEE isn't loaded with SJPC
members, like past committees have been. Several new faces
have surfaced to man this committee, planning for our county's
future. In fact, there Isn't a single SJPC executive to be seen on
the committee. The members aren't exactly neophytes in the in-
dustrial attraction business, but we believe each and every one
of them is genuinely interested and concerned over our contin-
ued economic well being.
We see several proven go-getters on the committee, who have
proven their willingness to be eager to 'make a difference' on
past committees. With this type attitude we believe they will suc-
ceed where others may have failed.
There is more than a little bit of new blood in this committee.
We hope and believe it will be enough to make the membership
brash and eager about their task. There are more than a few on
the committee who don't know what it means to say, "we can't
do it!"



Situation Is Changed

THE BOX PLANT CLOSING makes it imperative that we find
a replacement for those 85 jobs lost and the many lost through
the telephone company cutbacks. Chances are that the paper
mill has a few personnel cutbacks of its own, provided it didn't
lose, enough due to the shutdown to serve its needs to scale
back. Loss of jobs is becoming old hat to us and you can't make
it easier by explaining that industry has a need to save on man-
power, or 'industry is doing the same all over'. That doesn't help
at all!
What would help is figuring out a replacement for these lost
jobs. i-And;iwe can: We have at least one viable prospect for re-
placement sitting alongside the bay .
WE'RE TALKING ABOUT-the development of our port-or to
be more, specific-the rescue of our port from the enemy of decay
and ruin. It's just sitting idly by, waiting for someone to jump
start a movement to bring it,back to life.
It isn't as if we didn't have the money, either. We definitely
have enough to get started on. We have a couple of million in the
bank and a couple of million more in a state grant. That adds up
to several million, which Is more than many projects start with.
We have the location arid, we understand, a parcel of land
has been made available to the powers that be for consideration.
YOU'D THINK THAT WITH all of the negative things that
have happened to us over the past few months, we would be tak-
ing steps in whatever direction we could to make the situation
better, don't you? Well, so do we.
If no action is taken, soon; the community stands to be re-
quested to return the state grant, unused. So why take a chance
on losing the grant we have promised to us? Why not begin to
take action to make the port a reality? Then, if we fall, at least
.we tried!
Maybe the reason we don't try is because we are not accus-
tomed to thinking 'hard times' in our community. We've always
had whatever we needed, but this situation is changed now.
For sure!


Yr


Golden My Hind Foot!


Silence.
I never knew it could be so
deafening.
The boys are gone. Now. I
know college is not like sending
them to Timbuktu or Rawlings.
Wyoming or, heaven forbid, off to


war.
But they are not here.
They have been gone for a
week. And my house has a noise
problem like none it has ever
experienced.
Cathy and I knew we'd miss


them. We are lully cognizant of
the process of life which entails
sending the young ones out. We
have talked about this moment
for a couple of years now. We are
not unfamiliar with the -empty
nest syndrome-. We just ain't
never lived it.
And no one told us about the
noise.
The constant 4cktock of our
Seth Thomas No. 2 Regulatpr;
breaks' the silence as exploding
bombs. ..The water from the
kitchen faucet is like the roar of'
Niagara Falls. Boards creak in our
house when no one is walking on
them. Even the slightest of;
breezes will stir that trinket gizmo
that dangles by the back door. I
can hear the cat breathe. And I
had never', noticed that a light
bulb actually crackles. when you
turn It on.
Our meals are simple, small,
extra-quiet-and not very good.
And you know that counter
top that was always piled high
with books, papers, change, base-
ball caps, one brown sock, a small
plate half filled with leftover
spaghetti . Cathy was on
them everyday. "Boys, don't leave
your junk on my front counter!"
"Jesse. if you're finished, put the
glass in the sink!" "Who left the
milk out?" "Get that dead fish out
of my kitchen!" ..... well, we
cleared up that problem. We've
got the most absolute cleaned off
counter top in the Southeastern
United States.
Hey,. life goes on. We're
adjusting. We even talked a little
this morning. I was looking for an
old pair of running shorts.
"Cathy, where are my blue
Umbros?"
"Jesse wore 'em to the base-
ball field that last day. They're in
the chair in his room."
"Would you please get them
for me?"
"No, you go get them."
"Uh... uh where are my
white ones?"
I t's kinda funny, we kidded
with the boys about getting; them
out of the house so we could final-
ly W&tch what we'wanted to on
T.V. Now, we hardly turn it on. Or
we'll check out wrestling or a ball
game "'cause the boys might be
watching." Cathy reads. And I oil
Brad Knox's glove.
Even with .the T.V. on it's
pretty silent.
I remember coming home late
years ago after a particularly hard
day. Josh was on me before I
could get to my cold supper. "Dad,
let's shoot some baskets."
"Yeah dad," Jesse and I. usu-
ally took on Josh, "let's whip him
again!"
We had literally played bas-
ketball out at our old make-shift
goal every night for the past sixty-
one days. I was so tired. "No boys,
I've got to eat."
"Com'on dad, just one or two

And A Happy 60th Anniversary To The Star


THIS ISSUE OP The Star
marks the 60th anniversary of
this remarkable, newspaper. I say
'remarkable' as it is the only one
of four newspapers, started in
Gulf County, which still sur-
vives.
Another newspaper, pub-
lished monthly, exists in Wewa-
-hitchka, carrying one of its prede-
cessors' name, but it isn't a
continuation of the same newspa-
per, founded by C. F. Hanlon in
1924, just before the county was
separated from Calhoun.
We had planned to use a pho-
to of the first front page of The
Star printed in the feature photo
spot above, only to discover that
the paper was nearly a month old
before copies were saved. That
one was lost many years ago, if,
indeed, a copy was ever saved.
The first issue was printed on the
first weekend in September, 60
years ago. The issue shown in the
illustration, above, was printed
October 29, 1937, and was the
first issue saved in bound copies
by the original publisher of The


ETAOIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


Star, a one-legged World War, I
veteran, named W. S. Smith.

THERE HAVE BEEN four
newspapers started in what is
now the, county, as I said before.
These were the St. Joseph Times
back in the 1830's, serving old St.
Joseph in its heydey; the Gulf
County Breeze, founded, as we
said, in Wewahitchka by C. F.
Hanlon with the birth of the new
Gulf County; The Sentinel, was
started by Hanlon in Wewahitch-
ka and later moved to Port St. Joe
to be closer to the people it was
published for. It was taken over
by Larry Evans in Port St. Joe in
1938, continuing until 1941, and,


of course, The Star, founded late
in 1937 by W. S. Smith and con-
tinuing, at least, until this issue. ;
The Star has been under the
ownership of only two people dur-
ing its 60-year history; Smith, the
founder, and me, who agreed to
pay for the newspaper in hard in-
stallments in the year of 1952.
Since that time, in recent years, it
has become a corporation, with
myself, my wife, Frenchie, and
son, Willie, as the owners.

THERE HAVE BEEN many
changes in the newspaper over
the years, just as there have, as
you have noticed, in Port St. Joe.
In that October 29, 1937 is-


sue was an announcement that a
new theater was scheduled to ,be
built at a downtown location-the
Port Theatre. The story says it
was to be located "on Third Ave-
nue". The street has since had its
name changed to "Reid Avenue".
The building was to be located
"next to Miles 104 Store" [Port St.
Joe's answer to Woolworth's].
That building, along with the for-
mer Schneider's Department
Store and McCoy's Department
Store, is now Badcock's Furni-
ture. The "Miles", for whom the
10t store was named, is the late
M. K. Hurlbut, who passed away
just a few years ago.
All of this is recorded in vari-
ous Issues of The Star. That has
been its business for these past
60 years; every Week, religiously,
just as regular as they came by.

THE STAR HAS had the sad
duty to report bad news, just as it
has had the opportunity to chron-
icle happy news over the years.
It had the sad duty to print


the coming of World War II, which
spelled the demise of The Senti.
nel. It also had the sorrowful re-
sponsibility to report the death of
Edward A. Bandjough, spelling'
the demise of The Breeze. Ed and
I each paid-or rather, agreed to
owe-too much for our respective
newspapers barely a year apart,
with Ed taking over The Breeze in
1953, after I had been taken over
by The Star in November of 1952.
We both struggled for a long
while before we were able to get
on our feet. Unfortunately, Ed
died before me and had no suc-
cessors working in the business
to continue it.
This newspaper uses not ope
single machine in its production
today, which was my standby
during the early years.
It is entirely composed with
computers and photography and
printed on a press in a style
which was only a dream in some-
body's mind when I started. But,
it has allowed us to grow and ex-
pand and do things in the news-


paper production business which
even The New York Times couldn't
do when I first took over here at
308 Williams Avenue. "308" has
now been expanded to "304",
"306" and "308". another sign
of growth.

COMPUTERS ARE the "Lino-
types" now. Film and cameras
take the place of 'mats' and hot
lead. Fast, rotary offset presses
have taken the place of the old,
slow, flat-bed cylinder, hand-fed
presses. Speeds of 2,250 impres-
sions [printed pages] per hour
have been succeeded by press
speeds of 10.000, 12,000,
13,000; even 18,000 and 20,000
impressions an hour, should we
have the need for that kind of
production.
It's a far cry from the first Is-
sue of The Star, which required
two full days of press work to pro-
duce. Now It's five times the num-
ber of papers printed, in a press
run of approximately 30 minutes.
Time marches on.

Scallop Festival


Thousands Enjoy Celebration


An estimated 3,000 people turned
out on a perfect, but hot and humid
day, Saturday, to observe Port St.
Joe's "Scallop Festival" and take full
advantage of the last gasp of summer
vacation.
Two of the celebrants on hand were
Congressman Allen Boyd and State
Representative Jamey Westbrook, who
met on the festival grounds at Frank
Pate Park to shake hands.
In the photo at left, Patrick Howard
pours up a "cooking" of fresh fried


scallops for the crowd to enjoy. H&-
ward fried up the sweet sea meats all
morning long, until he ran out; and he
had the sweat pouring off his entire
body to prove itl
, The Scallop Festival was the first
ever for Port St. Joe and was produced
'from a joint operation, coordinated by
the Chamber of Commerce as well as
several other organizations. The hot
and humid weather was certainly no
deterrent to people joining in the cele-
bration activities.

union representatives said on a
prepared statement. "
In an article reported in The
Star last week, company officials
said :approximately 100 of the
firm's 270 union and non-union
employees have been terminated
during the reorganization process.
Tuesday morning company
vice president Jim Faison said the
company stands by the represen-
tation made to the employees,
union and public. "It wouldn't
serve any useful purpose to com-
ment any further," he stated.
St. Joseph Telephone
Company was sold to an invest-
ment group, Texas Pacific, after
St. Joe Corporation decided to
divest themselves of their tele-
phone company holdings, St. Joe
Paper Company and other hold-
ings, as they* restructtired the

Phone company offlcialsehave
stated they are only doing ,what'
most telephone companies across
the state have already done.
Reducing work forces and adding
automation are 'necessary to
' remain competitive in today's
market, they said.
Local union representatives
argue that people have been
replaced with other people-in
this case rion-union workers tak-
ing jobs, tax dollars and money

replacement and safety.
: After 'this Board meeting
Board members received copies of
the results of a Management and
Organization Review of the Gulf
School District which was con-
ducted in May at the request of
the Superintendent; and Board.
,This Review, conducted by a team
of education administrators with
many years of experience and
'expertise in all school programs,
revealed that our transportation
-costs are well above the state
average.
The Review noted that "A
number of reserve buses are
available. This number, from 10
to 14, appears to be larger than
necessary. .. the transportation
costs appear to greatly exceed the
,state reimbursement for trans-
;portation." After looking at the
numbers and talking to bus
mechanics, I concluded there was
no immediate need to purchase
.more buses. The results of the
Management and Organization
Review were consistent with my
conclusion.
Our school buses are main-
-filned in excellent condition by
Four very capable mechanics; we
have very few breakdowns. Safety
is of prime concern to all, of us.
The Board, Superintendent and
all school personnel are commit-
ted to putting "Children First"..
However, we need to evaluate pro-
grans, look at alternatives, and
determine if there is a better way
of operating.
For example, leasing or lease-
purchasing a couple of vans to
transport small numbers of stu-
dents would be more economical
than using a 65-passenger bus.
The above-mentioned Review con-
tained a number of recommenda-
tions 'for improving the trans-
portation program.
Sincerely,
/s/ Mary Pridgeon
Chairperson
Gulf County School Board

Everything Makes
News, But JESUS!
August 21, 1997
Everything can make the News,
but JESUS!
To All the Ministers, Pastors,
Asst. Pastors, and Preachers In
Port St. Joe, Fla.:
The Lord' has put upon my
heart to write this letter to all of
you, to let you know that the peo-
ple in this community are hurt-
ing. And they need .our prayers,
we need to set aside a day of fast-
ing and praying for our economi-
cal well being for our community.
We need to assemble ourselves in
a designated place, like the high
school football field, for an hour of
prayer.
The Lord has put upon my
heart to tell each pastor to put
aside any prejudices, feelings or
attitudes toward other churches
for a common cause. Satan is try-
ing to destroy our community. We
need bold Christians to take a
stand in the cause, because if


Satan can destroy our communi-
ty, he will destroy our churches. I
pray that someone reading this
letter can assemble the communi-
ty together for one hour at the
football stadium for prayer.
We need not look to the tele-
phone company. We need not look,
to the paper mill. We need not
look to the box plant, nor the City
Commissioners for answers. We.
need to call on the name of Jesus
for answers to all of our problems.
Psalms 24 says-The Earth is
the Lord's, and the fullness there-
of, the works and they that dwell
therein.
Psalms 121 says-I will look
to the hill from whence cometh
my help. NMy help cometh from the
Lord which made Heaven and'
Earth.
So to all Christians, friends,
brothers and sisters, let us come
together for the need is great to
put Satan to flight out of our com-
munity and off of our jobs. And
let's ask Jesus to come in and
restore all that Satan has tried to
destroy. Let's pray and ask Jesus
to save our community and our
jobs.

Westbrook Writes Comments On Phone Company Situation


^Hon. Nathan Peters, Chairman
Gulf County Board of County
Commission,
1000 Fifth Street
Port St. Joe, Florida 32456
Dear Nathan:
I, like you, was saddened to
hear that' Gulf County was going
to lose more jobs. The loss of jobs,
is bad news whether it hurts five
people or 500 people. But it would
appear the closing of the Operator
Services Office at St. Joseph
Telephone & Telegraph Company
has far reaching effects.
With news of. their closing,
one would have to question the
loyalty of this hometown employ-e
er. The corner stone of any good.
relationship is the willingness of
both parties to give and take even
F though giving is sometimes a
great sacrifice. Now, it would
appear that St. Joseph Telephone
was only interested in taking not
giving.
For years, the telephone com-
pany has benefitted from tax
incentives offered by state arind
local governments. These incen-
tives usually meant less revenue
to operate local governments. In
the legislature, we have worked to
curtail regulation and allow for


flexibility in long distance billing.
We al understood that profit and
loss margins needed to be healthy
to keep the business afloat which
in turn meant steady employ-
ment.
Speaking of employment, it's
equally sad to know that there
has not been any consideration to
loyalty between the employee and ,
the employers. Men and women
who have dedicated years of hard
work to their employer have come
to'the job site to learn they don't
have a job. St. Joseph Telephone
bosses have presumably turned
their backs on their employers.
That'lt {he greatest loss of'all. ',
Commissioner Peters, I share '
ybur'-cohcetrn over the iisks of 16'2
ing service in the aftermath of a
catastrophic hurricane. However,
in the wake of Hurricane Andrew,
Florida's Emergency Management
Agency has put into place an
effective plan in restoring vital
services such as telecommunica-
tion services. I am confident that
in' the evefit such a storm did take '
place, 'Gulf County would be
taken care of in that respect.
Finally, let me say that I
understand the need of business
to make cuts and changes to keep


a busifiess stable and I support a
business' right to make whatever
changes necessary. But I'm disap-
pointed that St. Joseph managers
have not looked out more for the
men and women of the communi-
ty they've called home for so many
years.
Gulf County's economy has
been beset by so much bad news
over the past 12 months, .in spite
of the. tireless work of elected offi-
cials and business leaders. As I've
told you in the past, I am commit-
ted to assisting you in any way
possible in building economic
.prosperity in Gulf County.
S'Pl'eatsedo fnot thesitat to call
: upod me, or my staff. ifvw e can
'. assist you.
Sincerely,
/s/ Jamey Westbrook

State Approves "Reasonable Force" Guidelines for Schools

To Authorize Teachers To Deal With Disruptive Stadent Behavior In The Education Environment


The State Board of Education
today approved a set of guidelines
on the use of reasonable force .by
school personnel to maintain a
safe and orderly learning environ-
ment.
The guidelines are the recom-
mendation of the Education Stan-
dards Commission and the Edu-


cation Practices Commission as
the result of a 1996 law providing
teachers with the authority to use
reasonable force to manage stu-
dent behavior. The Teacher Au-
thority Law enhances the authori-
ty of teachers to maintain a safe
and orderly learning environment
by providing them with the au-


thority to establish rules of con-
duct for their classrooms and
have violent, abusive, uncontrol-
lable, or disruptive students re-
moved from their classroom.

mer teacher, principal and super-

so as not to endanger themselves

She pointed out that she and

Children and young adults
are not the only ones heading
back to school this fall. Parents
should be close behind, according
to the National Education
Association (NEA).
"A child's success (or failure)
in school often depends on the
parents, particularly the extent of
* their involvement in their child's
education," says NEA Presidel
Bob Chase.
"It's important for parerits to
become active partners with
teachers to help their children
learn. That partnership plays a
role in the classroom and at
home. It is a key to ensuring that
all children start school ready to
i learn, whether it be kindergarten
or college."
Research shows that when'
parents take an active interest in
their child's education, the child
does better in school. Higher
grades, improved attendance, and
better behavior are among the
positive results. w s a
There are many ways parents'.
can be involved in helping their
child succeed in school.
Here are a few tips:
Encourage your child to read. and
help with reading assignments:
A Read aloud to younger
children. Get them to comment
and ask questions.
/-a When your child first
learns to read, let him read to
you, listen attentively and be sure
.to praise his efforts.
5 Have,' a discussion with
your child about the books she
reads-whatever her reading
level.
O' Be a role model-make-
sure your child sees you reading-
regularly.
Involve other family mem-'
Sbers, especially older children
who can read to the younger ones.

ing as a lengthy discussion devel-
oped over what: constitutes a
legally operated home-based busi-
ness under the requirements of
city ordinance.
Mayor Linton said businesses
established before the 1996 ordi-
nance were grandfathered in and
were legally bound to meet the
requirements enforced at the time
they were established.
The 1996 ordinance allows
businesses to operate out of their
homes in residential areas, but it
was meant specifically for mobile
type businesses (operating out of
a service vehicle) and office type
operations. Those businesses still'
must meet stringent require-
ments-not more than one non-
family employee; no delivery
trucks; no walk-in customers or
suppliers calling at location; no
advertisement: and must live on
premises.
City Attorney Billy Joe Rish
said anyone operating outside
those guidelines, who was not
grandfathered in, would be in vio-
lation of the ordinance.
Commissioner Tharpe said
the ordinance was written to try
not to hurt anyone, yet help small,


business people just getting start-
ed.
"I can save 50% of my over-.
head if I move my business back
to my home," Mrs. White told the
board. She said she thought that
many of the businesses were
operating outside of the ordinance
requirements.

Cookie Trims Fat, Not Flavor


""~ d i-- ... a. ', J: il'
Peanut ButterDelights, a peanurty cookie liberally sprinkled with mini chocolate
chips, is proof positive that taste need not be sacrificed for health.
To cut the fat, yet retain a chewy texture, we used reduced-fat peanut butter and
unsweetened applesauce. Because applesauce mimics fat's creamy texture and
adds moisture, a smaller amount of margarine gives good results.
Since cookies tend to be low in fiber as well as vitamins and minerals, wheat
germ was substituted for some of the flour. More wheat germ sprinkled on top
adds a kid-pleasing crunch that grown-ups will love, too!
Peanut Butter Delights
1/2 clip reduced-fat peanut butter I cup all-purpose flour
: 1/4, cup (1/2 stick) margarine, 1/2 cup Kretschmer wheat germ,
sbfteried L any flavor
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon baking soda,
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
2 egg whites 1/4 cup mini semisweet
1/2 teaspoon vanilla ; chocolate pieces
Heat oven to 350F. Beat together peanut butter, margarine and sugar until
creamy. Add applesauce, egg whites and vanilla; beat well. Add combined dry
ingredients; mix well. Stir in chocolate pieces; mix well. Drop by tablespoonfuls
onto ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with additional wheat germ, if desired.

Sharpen Your Bow


Hunting Skills Now


SI


With seven weeks to go before
the opening of the archery season
in, Northwest Florida archery pros
say if you plan to hunt this fall
you should be practicing now.
Jim Atkinson. a retired pro-
fessor in physical education from
Pensacola Junior College and a
practicing bow hunter for 46
years, says there are three funda-
mental reasons those to plan to
bow hunt should be shooting
now.
For one thing it forces people
to pick up and inspect their bows
for things like cracked limbs,
peeling veins, things that are
rusty or broken and anything that
needs replacing," he said.
"Secondly, most archery hunters
miss deer because they can't
judge distances."
By practicing from both the

known distances people get more
comfortable and do better. The
last thing is it puts people. in the
right frame of mind. They start
doing the things that are neces-
sary to get ready, like contacting
landowners and scouting and
that's beneficial.
Atkinson, who works in sales
for Mike's Gun Shop in Pensacola.
says he's surprised every year by
people who pull their bow out
from under their bed for the first
time the day before the season
opens.
For those new to archery
hunting, Atkinson suggests they
find an archery pro shop where
they can get assistance in select-
ing the right bow, arrows and
other equipment.
"It goes without saying, but
this is an equipment-specific
sport. Everything has to be
matched to the shooter," he said.
The Northwest Zone archery sea-
son will run October 18 through

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


INGROWN TOENAILS
Toenails should be Lrimmed reg-
ularly. because they grow a little
every day. If they aren't cut back.
they will grow under, making a kind
of U-turn back to the foot because
there's no place for them to go If you
wear socks or shoes.
Frequently, ingrown toenails
don't hurt in the early stages, so a.
person may not recognize a problem
until there's real pain. By this time,
the nail has grown under and has
penetrated the skin.
Once the skin is broken, an
infection often develops that requires
medical treatment. The pain can be


excruciatingg ^ .
because [he &
nerves in the foot
are so sensiuve.
Early treat-
ment of an ingrown toenail Is vir-
tually painless. However, a badly ;
ingrown nail may have to be
, removed. Smart moVe: Don't wait
until you have to see the podia-
trist; schedule a regular check-up.

Sign Up Today For A Hunter

Education Course Near You!


With a little more than a
month until the opening of the
1997-98 hunting season, it's time
to enroll in a hunter education
course.
The 16-hour' course, 12 of
which are devoted to classroom
instructUon and four at an out-
door range. is offered throughout
the state by the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission.
Surprisifigly, some who take the
course never intend to hunt.
"We have some people enroll
who have firearms in the home
and just want to be careful
around them." said ,Lt. David
Crosariol, the GFC's Northwest
Region hunter education special-
ist. "Sometimes there is a son or
daughter enrolled in the course
and the whole family may attend."
Crosanol said the course is
required for any person born on
or after June 1. 1975 who plans
to purchase a hunting license in
Florida. It's also a great course for
experienced hunters to get up-to-
date information on Florida hunt-
ing laws and a refresher on such
subjects as hunting ethics, use of
various equipment such as bows-


See The Star
On-Line at
www.homtown.com/star


and arrows and muzzleloaders,
safe handling of modern firearms
and more than half-dozen other
related topics.
To find out about the nearest
available course, Crosariol said
individuals can call the Northwest
,Region office in Panama City at
(850) 265-3676. Florida's course
is free and accepted by all other
states.

Tuten and Shanna Wester. You
have made your school very
proudly
Another special person with a
very interesting job, Ms. Anealia
Bush, inspired many students
with her career speech on dental
hygiene. Once a week, someone
different introduces their field of
work to the students so that they
will be familiar with the many
career opportunities. This pro-
gram -is much appreciated.
The Junior BETA Club is now
in session. They voted for officers
last week, so the club has gotten
a head start. The results of the
elections are as follows: President
Ashley Bryan; Vice-President -
Leslie Earley; Historian Lisa
Curry; Secretary Rachel
Geoghagan;. Treasurer Brittany,
Reeves; Social Chairman Drew
Tuten; and Senators James
Daniels, Jennifer Raffield and
Aaron Hamm.
Also on the subject of elec-
tions,: the Student Government
.Association will be holding their
elections sometime in the near
future.
As for middle school sports .
cross country, volleyball, and
football participants have begun
training. These athletes work
hard and deserve a pat on the
back.
T'Ehe first official football game
is scheduled for September 11.
Accompanying the football play-
ers Will be the enthusiastic cheer-
leaders. The 1997-98 cheerlead-
ing squad includes Carla Money,
Brooke Moore, Brittany Reeves,
Rachel Geoghagan, Ashley Bryan,
Britthie Parker, Susan Ellmer,
Alisha Barber, Erica Hernandez
and Danielle Bellinger.
Our school will host an "Open
House" for parents on Tuesday,
September 16 at 6:00 p.m.
Parents, plan to attend, meet your
student's teachers and get
answers to your questions.
There is so much to be done
at the beginning of the school
year. Clubs are being organized,
social events are being planned,
and students are recovering their
minds So far, it looks like this
school term will be memorable. As

On Tuesday evening.
September 16, at 5:00 p.m., par-
ents of Port St. Joe High School
students are invited to "Open
House."
The evening will consist ofia
general assembly in which several
topics of particular interest to
parent ts andstudents will be dis-
cussed. Hot topics include the
new Bright Futures Scholarship

scale and eligibility for participa-
tion in sports.
Also on the agenda will be a
review of the Gulf County

mittee.
Perhaps of most interest to
parents is the fact that teachers
will be available in their class-
rooms to discuss a student's
progress. Progress reports will
have been sent home the previous
Thursday (Sept. 11), so the open
house will afford parents an
opportunity to follow-up on any

October 2 and 3 due to teacher
inservice days.
Fall Festival
Our Fall Festival will take
place on Saturday, October 25.
Many volunteers will be needed to
make this a success. This is a big
money-making project for our
school.;
Share Responsibility
What do you do when your
children have used up their
allowances and ask for more,
money?
Most experts agree that it's
best not to pay children for-rou-
tine household tasks. Families
run more smoothly when every-
one works together as a team,
sharing responsibilities. Some
parents make up a list of larger
jobs their children can do for
cash-from washing windows to
scrubbing the tub. This gives'
youngsters an opportunity to get
what they want by putting ,forth
extra effort.

MEDITATIONS OF A

By LOWELL F. ADAMS '
BIBLE TRUTHS
ABOUT JESUS
.the Lord himself shall
give you a sign; Behold, a
vi nrgin shall conceive, and
bear a son, and shall call his
<-- name Immanuel" Isaiah 7:14
A LMOST 800 years before Jesus was bornm, the above.
Scripture was recorded in the book of Isaiah by God's prophet.
About forty BC, Julius Caesar appointed his son, Herod
(the Great), governor of Galilee. Later Herod was made King of
the Jews. He married a Jewish lass, and appointed her brother,
Aristobdlus III, High Priest. Herod remained king until after
Jesus was born. He tried unsuccessful to find and kill Jesus.
Zacharias and his wife were too old to have children,
though they had long prayed for a son. God sent Gabriel to
Zacharias and promised them a son who, would blaze the way
for the coming Lord. (Luke 1:5-20). His name was to be John.
Six months later God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth in
Galilee, tp Mary, a virgin. She was engaged to be married to
Joseph. The Angel told Mary she would bear a son, and his
name was to be Jesus. (Luke 1:26-38).
After John was born, the Emperor ordered everyone to go
to their "hometown" to register and be taxed. Joseph and Mary
had to go to Bethlehliem, many miles away. Jesus was born while
they were in Bethlehem. This also had been prophesied many
years earlier. ,
Jesus chose His Apostles as He began His short ministry.
He was hated by the temple priests and other religious leaders.
Finally He is hunted down, betrayed by Judas Iscariot and
crucified on a tree (cross). Jesus' short life was the most
beautifully devoted and caring life anyone ever lived. He was
tempted with all of Satan's best efforts, just as you and I, yet he
never sinned. Jesus became the perfect Lamb of God. without
spot or blemish, to be sacrificed for the sins of the whole world.
He willingly gave himself for that suffering and death. Three
days later, He arose from the grave, victorious 'over death.
(These events are chronicled all through the New Testament,
and detailed in the Gospels, Matthew. Mark, Luke and John as
eye-witness accounts).
That Holy'God/Man is ali\e tdlaN. and is a friend and
Savior of all who will believe. His love will save you and me.
Faith (belief) in Jesus and God's Truth is all it takes.

God touches the lives of people. We need to be

"-'to be with her friends because she
says it's "uncool to hang with.

She constantly tells me .what-
to do and if I try to tell.her no or

does what.she wants to anyway or
says "so and so,gets to doit".'I am

Dear Mean Mom. r "
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 hating far
more troubles than they had 'a
decade ago. due to the cultural' '
changes in our 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.
It sounds as if your, daughter
is trying to conform, but she is


getting angry and blaming Vyou. '
True self-identity isyery diffi-
cult for teenagers to keep grasp of.
Peer pressure is surrounding your

n't need to do something just
because a friend is.
I 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 con itiol and
boundaries you, have defied as
the adult. Closeness will possible
return once your daughter can

Fertilizers


Supplies Doi
Feast or famine? That's a real
problem for many house plants,
and others confined to small
areas. Research has shown that
plants do much better when their
nutrient supplies don't fluctuate.
Unfortunately, when using
regular garden fertilizer, the
nutrient level is high immediately
after. application, but can greatly
diminish before fertilizer is
applied again.
Whenever we talk about fertil-
izers. we usually mention that
most plants needseveral periodic
applications throughout the year.
Soils have a limited capacity to
retain nutrients. Those needed by
plants for health growth must be
replaced regularly.
This method of applying fertil-
Izers at periodic intervals is a
sound and accepted practice. But,
it does require a lot of time and
work. In this article, I'll describe.
an easier and more efficient
means, of supplying plant nutri-
ents using controlled release fer-
tilizers. My information on time
released fertilizers was provided
in part by Extension Horticulture
Specialist Dr. Robert Black.
Controlled released fertilizers


Fluctuate; Time Release Nutrients Provide Answer


have been used by commercial
growers for many years. They are
liquid fertilizers concentrated into
granules and surrounded by mul-
tiple layers of polymeric plastic
resin. This covering controls the
release of the fertilizer over a long


period of time.
When these granules are
placed in or on top of the soil,
water from irrigation or rain pen-
etrates the plastic shell and dis-
solves the nutrient core. The
granules then become tiny reser-
voirs of liquid plant food, and
these automatically add regular
amounts of nutrients to the soil.
Various formulations of con-
trolled release fertilizers are avail-
able. And, each one is designed to
release nutrients for a specific
period of time. Some release their
elements within two or three
months. Others supply nutrients
for four to five months.
A single application of a con-
trolled release fertilizer to flower
pots, or small beds, should be
enough to keep the plants at the
optimum fertility level throughout
a normal growing season. Over
very long periods, it may be nec-
essary to make additional appli-
cations to keep the fertility level
constant.
These fertilizers have other
advantages. They can be applied
any time of the year. And, they're
moisture dependent, rather than
temperature dependent With


traditional fertilizers, nutrient
uptake is slowed, or stopped alto-
gether, if the soil temperature
drops too low. Controlled release
fertilizers stop releasing nutrients
only when the soil dries out. After
irrigation or rain, they continue
supplying their elements to the
soil.
With new plantings, con-
trolled release fertilizers can be
mixed into the soil. For estab-
lished plants, surface applica-
tions are most effective if the
granules are tilled in lightly-
about a half-an-inch to an inch.
Be careful not to damage plant
roots when tilling. If the fertilizer
is applied to the soil surface, and
cannot be tilled in, you need to
wet the granules frequently and
thoroughly to insure release of
their nutrients.
Generally speaking, you need
to use less of this kind of fertilizer
if your plants are infrequently
watered, have poor drainage, con-
tain high salt levels, or grow in
areas exposed to low light.'
For more information about
controlled release fertilizers,
check with your local garden cen-
ter operator. He can provide
brand names and suggested rates
of application.

"Hard Times" Can
Mean Hardened
Arteries For You
Hopelessness is a downer for
the heart, according to a study
that appears in this month's
American Heart Association jour-
nal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis
and Vascular Biology.
The four-year study of 942
middle-aged men links hopeless-
ness defined as feeling like a
failure or having an uncertain
future to a faster progression of
atherosclerosis.
Men were asked to rate their
feelings of hopelessness on a
scale of low, moderate or high.
Ultrasound provided a picture of
the blood vessels, revealing the
amount of artery narrowing from
atherosclerosis.
Susan Everson, Ph.D., of the
Public Health Institute (PHI) in
Berkeley, and lead author of the


study, says those who reported
high levels of hopelessness after
four years had a 20 percent
greater increase .in atherosclero-
sis than those with lower levels of
hopelessness.
Atherosclerosis is a progres-
sive disease in which fat, choles-
terol, cellular waste products, and
calcium collect in the blood ves-
sels, impairing their ability to
deliver oxygen and nutrients and
setting the stage for a heart attack
or stroke.
The study gives more support
to the "long-held belief that giving
up hope has adverse physical and
mental health consequences." But
exactly why that happens is
something that will take more
time to determine, says Everson
and her co-investigators.
Psychological stressors,
depression and anxiety can have
effects on the body's central ner-
vous system that influence *the
production of stress hormones.

St. Joe's Rummell Will Be


Headliner at Forestry Meeting

and Chief Executive Officer of St.

vision for Florida, for Florida
forests and for the new St. Joe
Corporation at the Florida
Forestry Association's Annual
Meeting, Thursday, September 4,

Crawford Warns
About Display
Rack Scams
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commission-
eg-' bBo;Orawford is urging con-
sutmefs ndt to be taken in by dis-
plBy tic business opportunities
that promise huge profits.
The warning comes on the
heel6 f Federal Trade Commis-
ston'd'TC) action against at least
-- sift'bfipanies-Including two in
Florida-that sold consumers
o i owership of carousels for dis-
playing and selling stuffed toys,
T-shirts and trinkets bearing the
names of well-known manufac-
turers, Including Disney, Warner
Brothers, Coca-Cola and Pepsi.
These companies have expressed
great concern about the apparent
misuse of their business logos,
products and product names.
FTC Investigators alleged that
some marketers offered-products
at wholesale prices and actually
charged retail prices for drastical-
ly outdated merchandise, making
promised profits virtually impos-
sible.
The average income was actu-
ally about $1.70 a day. Investors
were also allegedly misled about
which stores would accept the
display racks.
Crawford urges consumers
who may have been victimized, or
want to report a suspicious busi-
ness opportunity offer, to call the
Consumer Services Hotline at 1-
800 HELP FLA (1-800-435-7352).


at the Marriott at Bay Point in
Panama City Beach. The new
leader of St. Joe is expected to
shed light on the company's aspi-
rations to energize economic
growth in northwest Florida.
"St. Joe is Florida's largest
landowner, with over one million
acres of panhandle forests," says
Jeff Doran, Executive Vice
President, Florida Forestry
Association.
"When discussing who's in
the forefront of Florida's future,
Peter Rummell quickly comes to
mind. St. Joe has been a major
contributor to the forest products
success story for many years and
Mr. Rummell plans to share with
us his sense of where our collec-
tive future leads," Doran explains.
"We also expect him to provide a
progress report on St. Joe's
planned activities," Doran con-
cludes.
Also on the meeting's agenda
is the roll-out of the Association's
multi-media public outreach pro-
gram. "With ahnost half of our
state covered by forests, striking a
balance between preserving.
forests and society's need for for-
est-related products is a critical
issue," Doran adds. The compo-
nents of the campaign are
designed to involve Floridians in
our continuing practice of grow-
ing healthy forests and using
them responsibly," Doran con-
cludes.
.Rummell was. appointed
Chairman and CEO of St. Joe in
January, with the charge to
unlock the growth potential of St.
Joe's assets. Before joining St.
Joe, Rummell spent 11 years with
the Walt Disney Company; first as
President of Disney Development
and then as Chairman of Walt
Disney Imagineering, which
directed Disney's worldwide cre-
ative design, real estate and
research and development activi-
ties. He also held senior positions
with Rockefeller Center


Management Corporation and
Arvida Corporation.
St. Joe, a publicly held com-
pany based in Jacksonville, is
Florida's largest private land
owner and has interests in real
estate, timber, railroads, and
sugar. Rummell has said the com-
pany's vision extends well beyond
conventional real estate to com-
mercial, industrial, residential,
resort and recreational opportuni-
ties for the next century.
The Florida Forestry
Association is the state's only for-
est-conservation organization. For,
