Allen said the major challenge
facing the mill is "to become com-

* it now stands, we are not compet-
itive because of the high, cost of
production as compared to the
linerboard industry standard. It

had expressed an interest in

said the firm would employ
between 100-125 people with a
salary base of $8.00 to $17.50 per
hour with benefits. "I hope to
make a formal announcement
within 30 days," he said.
Leonard Costin presented the

Board Concerned Over Private Roads Being Closed by Owners
Much of Woodland Areas Owned by St. Joe Corporation Is Being Made Inaccessible by Private Hunt Leases
The closing and gating of dirt roads across Gulf County has raised the concern of coun-
ty commissioners over the past few weeks. Most of the'roads in question are roads on St. Joe
Corporation property that have been leased to private hunting clubs. Club members' have
begun gating off many of the roads and restricting usage to their club members only.
Board members said they have received numerous calls on the matter and wanted to
clear the air on ownership of the roads.
"We need to understand many of these are not county roads," Commissioner Billy Traylor
told the board.
Most of the roads have only been occasionally graded by the county, but this was done
for the convenience of hunters, not for St. Joe Corporation. "Just because we graded the
roads at one time doesn't make them ours," he said.
Board Attorney Tim McFarland verified Traylor's assessment, stating that the only way
the county could claim ownership of private property is if they construct and maintain reg-
ularly for a period of four years, or if the roadway is platted to the county when property is
Traylor said St. Joe has offered their property for public usage for many years and he
appreciated their generosity, but times have changed.
Commissioner Johnny Stanley voiced his agreement with Traylor's assessment of the
St. Joe Corporation still has a large .quantity of land available for public use in Gulf
County through the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission's management area
Commissioner Tommy Knox also expressed his concerns that access to Indian Lagoon
from Jim McNeill's store to the Franklin County line could be jeopardized if people don't quit
dumping trash and debris down the access roads. The area is a popular spot for local cast
netters to gain entry to the lagoon for fishing purposes.
Commissioners noted that trash dumping has long been a problem on isolated dirt roads
throughout the county and the public needs to be aware that the practice could cause reper-
cussions if it's not discontinued.
Industrial Park Contract
Phillip Jones (Preble-Rish, Inc., Consulting Engineers) told the board that contracts and
a Notice to Proceed have been formally signed with KMT Construction to begin building the
county's industrial park.
A pre-construction conference was held Wednesday morning with the contractor.
Resolution For Vocational Training

THERE'S NOTHING QUITE LIKE being on the cutting edge;
being the "first-est with the most-est" so to speak. Around Port
St. Joe, we have been accustomed to being in this position, we
didn't hardly know which way to turn. immediately, when our
several industries, which had been as solid as the rock of Gibral-
ter, began facing cutbacks and leaning down.
This was an unusual situation we found ourselves in, some-
thing we weren't accustomed to. We had always been able to
have just about anything we wanted, or at least have the assets
to get what we didn't have. Of course, our wants had to be sort
of parallel with our needs. We didn't need for anything in reason.
THEN, CAME ALONG THE reality check and we were con-
fused for a time. What do you do when your solid-as-a-rock jobs
begin to disappear? When people who had worked at the same
jobs for 30 to 40 years suddenly find that their positions have
been eliminated? Well, let me tell you, you are faced with having
to more than just back up and punt!
There was some confusion in the line while the backfield ma-
neuvered. Our star ball carrier was suddenly limping, just when
we needed for him to bull over the defense.
How do we change the situation in mid-play?
WELL, WE DID CHANGE our 'game plan to ,some extent in
the middle of the quarter. We started feinting the play to the
right, then to the left, then up the middle; back and forth, an
inch at the time.
Suddenly, we can sense a break-through!
Little things are beginning to happen which are beginning to
open holes in the enemy's line. The paper mill is operating once
again; a sign that we can at least stop going backward.
The marina permit was issued by DER, promising an eco-
nomic shot in the arm from this source. The Economic Develop-
ment Committee received some positive advice from visiting ad-
visors-many of the attributes ,they say are necessities, we
already have in place. Cox and Associates and other small in-
dustries in the community are expanding. Things are begin-
ning to look up.
THESE THINGS ARE proof that we won't stay down forever!
What with the Gulf Coast College annex under construction;
with agreement heading in the right direction to open up proper-
ty for future development along the banks of the Gulf County
Canal, with all our local governments holding the line on tax lev-
ies, with "barber shop talk" once again becoming positive, we
can expect a short-lived local recession.
STATE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING to talk itself into a spe-
cial education session to mend the school problems which are
being felt state-wide. Well, we think they should do it free gratis
for the taxpayers, since they are the reason things are so con-
fused and muddled up.
Counties all around us-as well as Gulf County-are having
monumental budgetary problems this year. Most of these
counties don't normrnly have this type problem. Year after year,
Bay, Jackson, Calhoun, Gulf and even Franklin. can usually
come up with a balanced budget sufficient to pay for our chil-
dren's education. None of these counties have an excess of funds
to toss around, but they normally have a sufficiency.
This year, without exception, every one of them is in trouble,
deep trouble, if what we read in area newspapers is correct. Bay
County had to dig into its reserves for a few million; Jackson
had to either do the same or cut back, drastically, on, extra-
curricular activities, such as the band, football team, and, other
MOST OF THE CONFUSION is being brought about by the
school system trying to be all things to all people; providing

when my.good friend, Wayne But-

Wayne was shipped one at
that time, bearing nearly a thou-
sand dollar price tag. Wayne
didn't think he could sell it at
that price, so he just took it home
for his wife, Doris, to use. It just
sat there for several months, un-

Remove all nits (lice eggs).
Because no treaunent kills lice
with one application, many appli-

treatment. For self-protection,
schools usually require all traces
of nits, whether dead or alive, to
be removed before allowing a

combs are usually provided with
the treatment. Ask your pharima-

Offshore fishing is producing good catches of snapper and grouper,
while inshore the kings are biting good only at feeding times and spotty

WILDLIFE AND ENVIRONMEN-
TAL AREA (Franklin and Gulf
Counties): This area covers
55,652 acres and was purchased
to preserve floodplain, river bot-
tom habitat along the Apalachico-
la River. Although some hunters
travel there to hunt deer, it has
lots of grey squirrels and is a fa-
vorite destination of many squir-
rel hunters. Access to most of the
area is by boat. As a WEA, season
dates for hunting are the same as
those established for private
lands with the exception of ant-
lerless deer days. There are no
antlerless deer days.
ED BALL WMA (Franklin and
Gulf Counties): This 66,270 acre
WMA is equally divided between
dog hunt and still hunt areas. A
portion of the still hunt area is a
walk-in area and a good bet for
hunting. The dog hunt section re-
ceives most of the hunting pres-
sure. Vehicles are not allowed on

$2,500 directly to this year's scholarship
* program. She also. presented $10,000 to the
Rollins College scholarship fund, to Erd-
mann. He announced that. his school's award

Gulf County students attending his college.
Erdmann took over the podium to make a
few remarks.,'Your willingness to join in this
unique partnership with us has made this
possible. I contacted then-superintendent of
schools, Walter Wilder with the proposal and
he jumped atthe idea," the educator said.
"You're a art of history. There are
over 100 communities throughout the na-
tion, involved in this program with vari-
ous colleges. You have. received publicity
from such prestigious sources as The New

port my efforts taken to achieve my dreams,"
Jerry Kelley spoke briefly, saying, 'You
can be sure the program is here to stay."
"Gulf County's percentage of students at-
tending college took a dramatic increase im-
mediately after the scholarship program was
adopted." Erdmann said, 'The percentage of
students attending some institution of ad-
vanced study increased from 50% to over
75%, the first year it was in effect," he con-

time she enjoys many things:
going to the beach, boating, walk-,

author is James Herriot. One of
his books is her favorite "All
Creatures Great and Small".
We asked her "When you were
a kid and someone said, 'What do
you want to be when you grow
up?'."/ She said, "A veterinarian."
But when she found out how long
she had to go to school, she decid-
ed to marry a vet instead. But,
she met Ralph and they married
and they lived happily ever after.

show a class of first graders howv

attempts, two or three just could-

Nicki, the kids these days!"
When Kayla Minger asked her

FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT'S DESK
I Th : ee by Jerry E. Kelley
I There is a movement sweeping the country that
appears to be anti-public education as we kQow it today.
Schools are constantly under attack from many sides.
Let's examine a few issues:
FACT: Schools are doing a better job than ever. The myths that say
otherwise originated in the 80's with the landmark report, "A Nation at
Risk." Since that report, serious reforms have occurred and what was
fact in 1983 has evolved into the myths of 1997.
MYTH: Plunging SAT scores show that schools are not doing their job.
FACT: In 1983, SAT scores had been dropping for a decade. They are
rising in the 90's. The 1995 SAT scores are the highest since 1974.
These increases are occurring even though many more students are
taking the test, which usually results in a decline. Math and science
scores are also on the rise. There is a dirmatic increase in the num-
ber of students taking tougher courses, such as trigonometry, calcu-
lus, and physics, while students needing remedial classes are declin-
In 1992, U. S. students finished seventh out of thirty in reading
assessment. That' s good enough for the playoffs in the NBA. In head
to head competition with the rest of the world, our best versus their
best, our students win their share.
While'schools',hve improved since 1983. there is still ro%. for

MEDITATIONS OF A
WHO IS JESUS?
he that hath seen me
hath seen the father."
A NUMBER OF TITLES have been assigned to Jesus by
unbelievers, during the two thousand years since He was born.
These range from an illegitimate child of a Roman soldier to an
over-imaginative son of Mary and Joseph, trying to elevate
himself to deity.
Just who was, or is, this man called Jesus?
Isaiah, probably the greatest prophet of the entire Bible,
evidently was enamored of the kings of his day, especially King
Uzziah. In Chapter six however, he says that when King Uzziah
died he was able to see the Lord. He reveals to us the
revelations that God gave following Uzziah's death..
In Isaiah 7:14 God reveals to His prophet the coming birth of
Jesus almost eight hundred years before. He was born. Then in
Chapter 53, he gives us a detailed account of His sacrifice for
the sins of mankind. Thus Jesus usherd in a "New Covenant"
and the Mosaic Law was nailed to His cross. No longer are
blood sacrifices required for the forgiveness of sin. Jesus, the
Lamb of God gave His blood, and it covers all our sins, if we
just accept that truth. Even Jews are no longer under the Law,
but most of them do not see it. However, Scripture says the day
will come when they will recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
Is Jesus God? Yes, according to the Bible He was God in the
flesh. Earlier God tried to reach people through .His Prophets.
"Hear ye, indeed but understand not; and see ye indeed, but
perceive not. "-Isaiah 6:9.
In order to provide a way for all people to know Him, God
came into the world clothed in the flesh, and was tempted in
every, way you and I are tempted, yet without sin, making Him
worthy as The Lambof God, sacrificially giving His own blood
to cover our sins.
"In ihe beginningwias the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God." -John 1:1
"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we
beheld His Glory." -John 1:14.
God is Jesus, and Jesus is God.
"Jesus saith he that hath seen me hath seen the Father."

In Psalm 54:2 we find,
"Hear my prayer, 0 God;
give ear to the words of
my mouth." Someone
recently said to me that
she prayed, but wasn't
sure that God listened to
her. Men also say the same thing. I talk to God
several times each day. Some people think that
God should answer all of their prayers instant-
I once prayed for a certain situation in which
God answered my prayer over five years later. I
never gave up on this prayer, and could have
accepted "no" as an answer. I put my faith and
trust in God.

chronic. We need to speak to God daily. We

We'd like to introduce you to
our grade one teacher, Beth
Taylor. She has written an autobi-
ographical narrative for us that
you will find most interesting.
"I was born in Neuchatel,
Switzerland where my parents
were learning the French language,
so they could go to Africa as mis-
sionaries. There are many, many
different languages in Africa so the
national language is French. This
is the language the different tribes
can talk to each other in, the trade
We were out in Congo for sev-
eral months and a major uprising
took place. This was the Congo
Rebellion of 1965. It was very sim-
ilar to what just took place in Zaire
except this time the missionaries
got out. Last time they did not.
My father for one was held
hostage for many days. My moth-
er, brother, and myself were in
hiding with other missionaries.
Before it was over, many Africans
and white people were killed. The
Lord spared all of my family.
I started going to boarding
school in first grade. We would go
to school for three months and
then home for one month. It was
very hard for our parents t6 leave
us, but we went to a wonderful
school and had dorm parents who
were like our second parents. I still
keep in' touch with my dorm par-
ents from way back.
I asked Jesus to be my per-
sonal Savior when I was in the
third grade. I have not been per-
fect since then :and it does not
mean that every day is easy, but I
do, have the Lord to help me
through each day.'
I met Bill when we were at
Bryan College. I attended there for
a short time. We became good
friends but I did not see him for 5
1/2 years after I left school. I went
on to John Brown University in
Arkansas. The Lord brought us
together. It surely was not our-
selves. He lived in Florida and I
lived inArkansas. We fell deeply in
love and got married June, 1987.
Since then we have had an
exciting, fun filled life with three
very' lively boys-Ryan (almost 9),
Zach (7), and Nate (4), and a little
girl Bethany who will soon be a

State Park Is Site of Annual Hawk Migration
[ p e d o u $ $It 'o mIIh p oc ll !
In Florida, St. Joseph Penin-
sula State Park is a point of con-
centration for thousands of
hawks each fall. The annual mi-
grations are among the most
spectacular found anywhere in
the world. By planning a visit to
the park during late September or
anytime in October, there is an
excellent chance of seeing large
numbers of raptors.
Sharp-skinned hawks, Coop-
er's hawks, broad-winged hawks,
and falcons are present during al-
most every day of the migration.
Other birds of prey appearing in
smaller numbers are the Missis-
sippi kite, Northern harrier, os-
prey, red-tailed hawk, red-
shouldered hawk and turkey vul-
From northern states and as
far away as Canada, these long-
distance travelers migrate south
along mountain ridges and river
valleys until reaching the Gulf of
Mexico, whereupon they turn
westward and fly around the Gulf
toward Mexico and South Ameri-
Though they generally fly;
along a wide corridor while mi-
grating, those hawks which reach
the St. Joseph Peninsula are fun-'
neled west via a much narrower
pathway-the peninsula averages
about a third of a mile wide-and
are thus much easier to see in
large numbers. The record hourly
number observed is 600 hawks-
ten per minute.
Hawks are an essential part
of the environment; they help
keep rodent and insect popula-
tions in control, thus assisting in
the balance of nature. These mag-
nificent creatures are a vital part
of the natural heritage. For more
information, call St. Joseph Pe-
ninsula State Park at (850) 227-

My mother, who is 82 years
old, has been living with us now
for five years and she is driving
my wife crazy. She has to have her
bed sheets changed, sometimes
three times a day, saying that the
bed is infested with bugs..
She often makes us keep on
all the lights in the house all night
long. She won't go anywhere, even
to the backyard without me at her
side. My wife and I are beginning
to argue and I don't want this to
end in divorce. Helpl
Dear Loving Son:
Your mother could be pre-
senting some of the symptoms of
dementia, a disturbance of a per-
son's thinking process, which
often occurs in older people. She
seems to be extremely fearful and
may be having tactile hallucina-
tions (a' sense that something is.
touching her when nothing is pre-
It may be best to start by dis-
cussing your mother's unusual
feelings/fears with her physician.
There are available medications
that can lessen these fears.'
She could also be evaluated
by a psychiatrist, a physician spe-
cializing in prescribing medication
for people with cognitive or emo-
It is not uncommon that this
circumstance creates a tremen-
dous strain on marriages and,
other family relationships. You
may need some help managing
the stress, reinforcing the rela-
tionship with your wife, and
determining social resources that
can help you with managing your
mother's health and behaviors.
Family counseling can be a
great help in all of these areas.
Psychiatric evaluation and/or
family counseling is available
through the Gulf County
Guidance Clinic, Inc.
