Sea Oats Harvest to Propagate


Pioneer,

Cecil Costin,

Dies Sept. 25
Thirteen days after his
100th birthday, Cecil G. Costin
passed away; He was recovering
from a surgical procedure three
days prior and developed
bronchial complications, which
ended his life on Thursday,
September 25, in Emory
Hospital in Atlanta, Ga.
Costin was the last of a
handful of pioneers which'
breathed life back into the City

of Port St. Joe immediately fol-
lowing the turn of the century.
He arrived in Port St. Joe in
1910, at the aggeof 13 as his
family followed the Apalachicola
Northern Railroad to town.
barely a few months prior.
The railroad came to Port
St. Joe, lured here by the
promise of shipping activity out
of the small town's deep natural
harbor, which had first attract-
ed developers to start a new ill-
fated town some 75 years earli-
er.
Costin grew with the town
and was involved in all facets of
that growth.
He was the first business
operator in the small town, at
the tender age of 13; along with
his father who had come here to
serve the handful of naval
stores people just beginning to
set up shop. and t he railroad
people beginning to move in.
He was instrumental, in
building the First Baptist
Church here and became its
most, staunch supporter. As
Rev. Howard Browning said at
his funeral, "Every time the
doors of the church were open
for a worship service, Mr. and
Mrs. Costin were there, unless
they were ill or out of town." He
was also a liberal supporter of
the church with his means.
Costin was also a hard
worker. His friend of 75 years,
Jake Belin, said in giving his
Eulogy, "The first time I met
Cecil, was at his 'shop' where he
was caring for customers, keep-
ing his books and putting up
stock. The last time I saw him
was just a few days before his
100th birthday. I went into his
'shop' and found him ... taking
care of his customers, working

Not Being

Harvested

By Peddlers
If there was any doubt citi-
zens of Gulf County had a gen-
uine Interest in the pristine beau-
ty and ecological balance of the
area, those doubts were erased
over the, past f6w days.
Area law enforcement, county
administrators, commissioners
and The Stat- office were each
bombarded with calls of concern
that sea oats along St. Joe Beach
were being cut by a group of peo-
ple who-"weren't from around
these parts."
We've all seen the sign "It's
unlawful to cut Sea Oats".
Workers with Agriculture
Innovations and Research (of
Milton) were not only within the
law as they harvested sea oats
this week, but were doing their
part to help revegetate the Gulf
Coast following erosion damage
by Hurricane Opal in October
1995.
Agriculture Innovations is a
not for profit corporation that has
been designated as a research
facility by the State of Florida.
Headed by Dr. John Hovanesian,
they specialize in growing coastal
plant seedlings for beach renour-
ishment programs.
Sea oat plants purchased by
Gulf County for post-Opal renour-
ishment programs were obtained
from the firm.
Joe Danford (Gulf County
Solid Waste Director) explained
the group harvested from spots in
Northwest Florida with prolific
supplies of sea oats, then germi-
nated the seeds and returned
them to the beaches through
renourishment programs fi-
nanced by the state. They also
have offered to return a portion of
the seedlings to Gulf County', free
of charge, Danford said.
Dr. Hovanesian explained sea
oats to be very poor reproducers
from seeds. Most reproduction is
done through root expansion as
the vegetation matures.
Only 5% of the seeds con-
tained in the upper seed pod are
fertile and of that 5% only 2% ger-
minate in the wild. So, for every
2,000 seeds, only 100 are fertile
and just two plants result in the
wild.
Through his research, Dr.
Hovanesian has broken the dor-
mancy barrier and is able to
achieve 85% germination from the
fertile seeds gathered by harvest-
ing. Those seedlings are then
used to renourish beaches at a
rate not possible through its nat-
ural evolution of the process.
The state will not allow more
that 50% of the seed heads to be
harvested from an area. This pro-
tects the natural beauty of the

Paper Mill Sets A Milestone Record: 1,000,000 Safe Man Hours

Record Reached Only Once Before In Its History


For only the second time in its 60 year his-
tory the paper mill here in Port St. Joe has
reached the milestone of achieving one million
man hours worked without a lost-time acci-
dent. "It's truly a great achievement by our
force of workers," said Ferrel Allen, general
manager of the mill.
It was juyt another plus feature which
greeted the work force of Florida Coast Paper
Company mill shortly after they once againbe-
gan to make paper after being shut down, cold,
for five months.
LAST RECORD SET IN LATE 60s
Allen said that as far as he can find out,
this mill had set this sort of record only twice
in its history; once during the late 60s and
again just within the last few days. "It is an
achievement to be proud of in the industry," he
said.
The record was set on the 11 p.m. shift Sat-
urday, September 27 after 407 days of opera-
tion without a lost time accident. The last lost
time injury at the local mill was on August 15,
1996.
"We'll not stop there," Allen said. "We're al-
ready working on the second million safe man
hours, and after we finish with that one, we'll


start on the third!"
Allen said the accomplishment typifies the
spirit of concern, teamwork and professional-
ism that exists among the employees of Florida
Coast. He noted that the safe completion of the
mill's start-up after the long market-related
shut down, "was a truly outstanding achieve-
ment that called on the skills and safety aware-
ness of each individual employee."
The company and its employees will cele-
brate the accomplishment with special ceremo-
nies at the mill, today, beginning at 11:00 a.m.
EXCELLENCE OF PRODUCT
In addition to the achievement of their safe
mark of excellence, the mill is committed to ap-
plying for its "ISO" status early next spring.

This is a hallmark that testifies to an excel-
lence of product, or guarantee that its product
passes stringent tests. The "ISO" rating is rec-
ognized throughout the manufacturing world
as a top degree of excellence of product-sort of
a "Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval" among
the manufacturing world, throughout the
world.
Allen says the designation will be an assu-
rance to the mill's customers that its product is
among the very best available.

Little to Fear 4

THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT AIRPORTS which attracts a
certain type of industry, whether it is the convenient travel be-
tween points by the industrial executives or the convenient, fast
source of delivery for spare parts and raw materials. An airport
is just attractive to certain industries.
Also, this attraction for certain industries sends up a red flag
of concern by folks who live in the vicinity. They knew the noise
was present when they built there, so it must be the imagined
stigma of living in or adjacent to a commercial zone which
sounds their alarm. But, in the case of Costin Airport, this prop-
erty, subject to industrial activity was also identified as such be- When t
fore most of the home owners built in the vicinity, for whatever it four they'd
is worth. no reason.
HAVE YOU EVER FLOWN out of Panama City and had your ly say vethi
plane take off in an easterly direction? Have you then looked to- :ed tobe the
ward the ground as your plane left the runway, gaining altitude? my own ch
Did you notice the size of the substantial number of homes full-well thi
built right up to the airport fence? Without exception these about a g
homes are all in the upper price range, equipped with all the father
amenities such as substantial outdoor patios, swimming pools,
gazebos, etc.: In other words, they are the nicer type homes.
Why do you reckon they all built so close to airport property
if they had compunctions about the declining value of their .
property? Keep in mind, too, that this airport was also there
first!
THE FACT THAT THE airport property lies between the in- 1. ,
dustrialized zone and the subdivision of nicer homes, tells us
they have little to fear from an obnoxious situation invading '.
their neighborhood. It is also Ironic that the person who devel-
oped the subdivision and the airport are one and the same. He
knew of the situation he was trying to create and knew there
would be no objectionable activity on the part of the subdivision
residents, nor their industrial neighbors.
The airport is one of the amenities which sold the subdivi-
sion in the first place-along with the golf course. With all of the
real estate between the proposed industrial area and the subdl-
vision arid the type of small industry the layout will attract, we
see no reason for anyone becoming disturbed, if, indeed, they
are.



Coincidence?
ST. JOE CORPORATION has been in this part of Florida for
a long time. The officers of St. Joe Corporation have not been
residents of northwest Florida for a great length of time. Thus,
we can see how the rash of fires which followed on the heels of
the announcement that much of their vast land holdings would
be closed to the,avid, casual hunter would come as a suspicious
surprise to them.
We remember, quite a few years ago. when St. Joe Paper
Company owned the same lands, they attempted a similar clos-
ing of their lands to hunters. Their reasons may have been dif-
ferent, but the results were the same, as far as the hunters are
concerned.
Conveniently, in support of the hunter's chagrin over being
,shut out of their favorite hunting territory. acreage began to
catch fire and burn. "
St. Joe Paper changed their mind and re-opened their large
acreage to hunters, saying, 'Ya'll come and welcome!"
WE'RE NOT SAYING IT was hunters who set their acreage
on fire recently; we're not even saying it was set on fire. All we're
saying is that the fires were conveniently timed to send a mes-
sage, saving the hunters the trouble of doing so,
St. Joe Corporation owns all the land in question; no doubt
about it. They keep up the land, pay taxes on it and pay for such
services as fire protection. They have a perfect right to keep
hunters off it, if they so desire.
The practice of dumping trash in the woods along the com-
pany's network of fire breaks also encourages the company to L4
close their woodlands to casual visitors. All of this is true and D
understandable.
But, that doesn't make the closing of the property to hunters 'A
any more palatable to hunters. Some long time lease holders will
probably applaud the firm's action, as it will help their situation.
.But, died-in-the-wool hunters on open lands; those accustomed
to hunting wherever they please, will be and are, highly dis-
pleased over the matter.
Some of them may be disturbed enough, even. to bum an
acre or two of woodlands in retribution.

Now. I'm no psychologist-
heck, I'm not even much of a
thinker, but I knew enough not to
break these wonderful interludes
by trying to analyze 'em. I just
enjoyed them. I did freeze the
memory of that little hand gently
patting my face as its owner drift-

smell of the tiny head resting just
underneath my chin. I tried to:
adjust my breathing to be in sync

Jake Has An Intense, Burning Love Affair.


. .With My Pants!


I AM THE subject of an unre-
quited, sustaining, intense, de-
sire. For the past week, I know,
this has been the case, despite
my every attempt at discouraging
such desire toward my person.
It wasn't anything I did, in-
tentionally, to encourage such de-
sire. It just happened.
I can't move, but what the
subject desiring my slightly over-
ripe body, follows in a slavish at-
tempt to be near me.
The subject licks my hands,
arms, legs, feet; lies down at my
feet and literally begs for a little
attention; an off-handed remark,
a touch. They have it bad!
They meet me at the.door, as
if they sense my arrival before I
actually do. The subject is lying
as close to my feet as they can,
while I am writing this little epis-
tie.
I would like to rid myself of
these extra curricular attentions
but I appear to be stuck with
them; for another week, at least.


I now know how Rudolph Va-
lentino felt, having to fight for. a -
little privacy every day; every.
hour.

THIS MATTER OF being the
center of someone's attention gets
old in a hurry '
I can't eat a snack without
the undivided attention paid me; I
can't move without being followed
every step of the way. I can't even
go to the bathroom without being
royally greeted at the door when I
come out. I tell you, all this atten-
tion is beginning to get to me.
I even left off my deodorant
from under my armpits one day


and all I did was assault my o0
nostrils! I tell you, all this atte
tion is for the dogs! I don't wist
on anybody. And, it is there, wa
ing, each and every day, unsol
ited, nothing you can do about
It would all be different if I w
trying to attract such devotion.
Maybe, I will try to attract
and see if that will drive it aw,
Anything, anything to discoura
the adoration of my person.

MY LITTLE POODLE, Smu
gie, has a habit of jumping up
my lap every time I stop for a n
ment to sit down. She corr.
right up and gives a little leap,


Ing down' for a short nap. But I
f am not the, object of Smudgle's
desire. Oh, I may be the object of
her desire, a little. At least, my
lap is.
A couple of weeks ago, some-
thing happened to Smudgie. You
guessed it:. Smudgie came into
- season, but she didn't stop jump-
ing up in 'my lap at every oppor-
wn tunity, leaving her scent.
.i- I guess I how smell forever-
lit more like a female dog in season,
lit- despite the deodorant, after shave
Ic- lotion, and a regular session
it. spent in the shower every day. I
'as try not to offend, and I guess: I.
don't, .so far as dogs are, con-
tit cerned. As a matter of fact, I
ay. must smell pretty darned good to
Age them.

A LITTLE OVER a year ago,
id- Bill acquired a male chocolate
in labrador retriever. He was just a
io- little pup at the time, and Bill
ies brought him-I stress the word
lv- him-to work with him in order to


be able to attend to the little fel-
low.
Well, ;the. 'little fellow' grew,
during the.,pastyear, into a huge
fellow He still follows Bill to work
every day and lies by his side,
waiting for Bill to pay him a little
.attention ...
Until two weeks ago! Now, he
pays undivided attention to me. I
am the object of his every wish; at
least, my smell is.
I can't move but what "Jake"
moves too. He nudges me; he lies
down at my feet; he tries to jump
in my lap-all 80 pounds of him-
,-he nuzzles me for a pat on the
top of his head.
He smells Smudgie on my
person!
When I walk into the print
shop, Jake abandons Bill. He
gives me all of his substantial at-
tention.
Every day for over a week,
now, I am the big person in
Jake's life. Jake is in love with my
smelly britches! I don't think he


is homosexual, either

I DIDN'T REALLY set out to
be so important to Jake and the
obvious object of his affection; it
just happened.
If you have ever been the cen-
ter of attention to a love-sick dog,
you know what I have been going
through. It's really pitiful, in a
way. Jake looks at me with his
large brown eyes and that wide
face which wouldn't fit in .a water
bucket, just waiting for any sigp
of recognition by me, for him to
smell my britches legs just one
more time, as it that would do
him any good!
I get so irritated with Jake
that I want to smack him good.
But then I get to feeling sorry for
him.
I guess even Jake has feel-
ings, too. I just wish he wouldn't
express them so regularly with
me and my pants leg! I wish he
would give me a little rest!

pounds of cannonball jellyfish,
the bulk of which was exported to
Taiwan, Japan and Korea.
Company president Gene
Raffleld spoke of the 1995 begin-
ning as a learning experience as
the firm developed processing
techniques and marketing oppor-
tunities.
The presence of Red Tide in
the Gulf waters last year (1996)
shut down jellyfish harvesting in
local waters, but the 1997 season
is just getting under way.
Raffield said the season typi-
cally runs from late September
until December when a drop in
water temperature kills the
remaining jellyfish.
Raffleld's is participating in a
joint program between the
Department of Agriculture and
Department of Labor to help fur-
ther develop jellyfish harvesting
along ,the Panhandle. The firm
has offered their assistance in
training and technology involved
in processing jellyfish.
Rlfieid.9said, iBecausei of the'
yearly life cycle of the jellyfish,
'they show up In seemingly unlim-
ited quantities during the early
fall months.
"There's plenty of jellyfish to
go around," he said, as he spoke
of the difficult times commercial
fishermen are dealing with since
the state voted in the net ban
which took away the bulk of prof-
itable commercial fishing oppor-
tunities.
"We're glad to help our fellow
man with the process." he added.
Expanding the national mar-
ket is being researched by
Raffield's as they begin harvesting
this season. One Tallahassee


restaurant purchased 20,000
pounds of jellyfish in 1995.
Chinese and Japanese
restaurants across the country
are possible customers, as well as


food stores which specialize in
serving the Asian communities.
At the end of their life cycle,
- in the early fall, cannonball jelly-
fish reach a maximum size of six


to eight inches in diameter. They
currently bring a processed price
of approximately .75 a pound for
trunks and $1.50 a pound for the
tops.


Marie Davis, Fred Mire and David Williams process cannonball jellyfish along the conveyor
assembly at Raffield's Fisheries Tuesday morning. Raffield's processed 200.000 Ibs. in 1995.

Six Structures Demolished by City, PD
With the help of the community, the Port St. Joe Police Department working with the City of Port St. Joe
public works personnel, removed six dilapidated structures over the last two weekends.
Some of these old structures were being used to conceal stolen property, shield persons using illegal drugs
and drinking, and posed potential health and safety problems to the community.
The demolition of these structures was made possible through the PSJ Police Department's Community
Policing grant. Hopefully in the future, more buildings will be removed, following condemnation procedures. VTwo
of the structures which were removed are shown in the photo.sabove'

Cub Scout Den
Studies America
Cub Scouts from Bear Den #2
recent tly visited the Constitution
Convention Museum and monu-
ment in Port St. Joe. The scouts
are working on their achievement
ladge titled "What Makes America
Special".
They are required to visit a
place of historical interest and
learn more about their home state
of Florida. The boys have dis-
cussed what America means to
them personally and will learn
about Americans who have
Improved our way of life.

RICKY
You heard the horn, the cries, the thud,
you sav ,ie red liquid blood.
S In this puddle unconscious he lay
I pleadingly knelt down to pray.
Lord, take him now the skies are blue,
Please don't make him suffer thru.
You are strong and he is weak,
S Take his soul now to keep.
The minutes passed like hours
As I held his sweaty palm.
Where was that stupid ambulance
We all depended on.
S I tried to share with care
How much I really loved him there.
As the ambulance came driving up
As slowly as can be,
I felt like killing that stupid driver
For he and also me.
The next thing I knew I Was in the hospital
Not knowing what to do.
When they told me he was dead,
I felt like beating someone's head.
As the tears rolled down my face,
Myself I could riot brace
I slid down the wall to the floor
And saw my shoes all worn and torn.
Flashbacks of him were in my mind,
Torn to pieces no longer mine
I held it together by far
Until we got to the car.
I screamed, kicked, huffed and puffed,
I hated the world for being so rough.
It was a sad but happy day
For he was with the Father now to stay.
They say time will heal wounds
And they are right.
For I do not mourn and cry every night.
We were only twelve
But I felt blessed to know him well.
His one year anniversary of death is today
But I still hate he had to leave that way.
Although it seems a long time away
I know I will see him again one day.
Dedicated to Ricky Collins and Family

In loving memory
of Leola Gathers
Dear Sweet Jesus ,
you've laid my mom to rest.
A wife, mother, grandmother &
friend to us, she was the best.
To us she was our mother.
To you she was your friend.
To my Dad she was his partner
until the very end.
She made everyone she touched
so very happy, especially us at home,
that we know Our Lord will have
her spirit never leave us alone.
Her strength was so encouraging.
Her council so unique.
Her faith in God, so strong, so sure,
and yet she was so meek.
My mother and I share a common
birthday;
one that I'll always hold dear.
Not a sad one, but a glad one,
for hers is in heaven, mine is here.
A grandmother's lope is unabiding
as her grandchildren witnessed every
day.
Her comfort, her sharing, her stories,
her caring is what they'll hold dear
from today.
We'll all miss my Mom,
her presence so dear, but she's
done with her suffering and pain.
She's formed a long chain,
each one a strong link, that will help
us to see her again.
For although we can't see her,
her spirit lives on.
Each day she'll be with us forever.
For Mom and Our Lord have a
common religion that will always
keep us together.
Amen .
Happy Birthday,
Love, Your Family

Dear Counselor: .
The problem I have is my 151
year old son. Over the past four
years, he has gradually developed
a bad attitude. It seems every-
thing I've taught him has gone
down the drain, even his desire to
please me and his ability to be
nice to me. It seems we disagree'
on everything, and we can't dis-
,cuss even the most simple subject
without getting mad at each other.
He insists on picking his own
friends and choosing his own
activities, knowing I disapprove of
them, and each one is clearly
heading him down a road leading
to destruction and failure.
What do you suggest I do? I
know my obligations as a-parent ^
are not over, and he feels I should
have little or no authority to tell I
him what to do.


Signed,
Worried
Dear Worried,
First of all, let me assure you
that your problem is not remotely
unique. Parenting a child in this
age group is a tiresome and
stressful task for both you and
your child.
Unconsciously, your son is
trying to break free from..Lhe
authoritarian environenvironment has,
been subjected to all his life.Youfr
are the object of his rebellion,
simply because your authority is.
standing in the way of him gain-,.
ing the authority he feels is neces-.
sary for him to establish his own;
autonomy. Establishing this!

ties are invited to attend.


autonomy is a natural process to
assure Individuality and a process
that you will need to encourage in
an appropriate fashion.
The best advice I can give you
is to try not to "rock the boat." The
best way to avoid rocking the boat
is' for both of you to increase your
awareness of the mechanics of the
situation with a heart-to-heart,
mutually accepting, and plausible
discussion.
Once a good awareness is
achieved, establishing roles, goals
and limits is much easier.
Remember that you are the adult,
and it is your ,responsibility to
provide leadership, limits and an
appropriate role model.
If you come to a place where
you have exhausted all your
resources and everything has
stalled, I advise you 'to contact
your local mental health facility.
These facilities are staffed by pro-
fessionals, trained to provide
advice and provide counseling
that can make your efforts less
stressful and more successful.

Bite Adjustment

and Jaw Pain


the aches


and pains that people experi-
ence in their jaws (and relat-
ed areas).are the result.of a
bad bite. Often, correcting the
bite may be all that is neces-
sary to alleviate the problem.
The dentist will examine
your bite and see if there is a
deflecting surface where your
teeth are meeting incorrectly.
He may adjust the teeth sur-
faces with high-speed burs or
diamond stones. This is
called' equilibration or bite
adjustment.
A very fine knowledge of
occlusion (how the teeth
meet) is needed to recognize
any discrepancies in the bite,


as they may be very subtle.
Sometimes the bite can-
not be corrected by equilibrat-
ing because the biting sur-
faces of the teeth need to be
rebuilt. If this is your situation,
the dentist may recommend
onlays or crowns as he
restores your bite to a healthy
occlusion. Occasionally,
orthodontic treatment may be
necessary to realign the
teeth, and this alone may cor-
rect the faulty bite.

Prepared as a public service to pro-
mote better dental health. From the

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1997 PAGE 1B




f To the late Cecil G. Costin, Sr.:
Dear Diddy,
I was surprised to hear today that you had passed away. You had spent just over five-score
years on this earth, and now you have returned to Mama Lola, whom you and I dearly loved.
Please say hello for me.
I never got to know you as well as I knew your wife. I was always encouraged to visit your
home often when I was in town. It was always a pleasure. I remember the lunches that your
maids used to fix, and how I'd spill the sugar dumping in three or four tablespoons to sweet-
en the tea.
Over the past decade, I have seen the son named for you, your daughter, and your wife pass
away. I was closer to your daughter, my Grandmommy, than I was to any other person in the
Carr or Costin family. We were friends since I was born, and she remains always near and dear
to my heart. I learned much about strength from her, and from your wife. Fortunately for me,
Mama Lola was too tired to whip children as I was coming along. However, I did hear stories
of her prowess with a switch. Mama Lola would sit and tell me stories about my family, espe-
cially my morn. Even though my mother had been divorced from your family for decades,
Mama Lola always asked about her and thought of her as her own.
Away from your house, I heard quite a few stories about your earlier days of marriage, when
you would work all day to make money and Mama Lola would spend it all on groceries to
give to those who needed them. Though she was generous, it was a generosity that you shared
that enabled her to give. Many men may have complained or have tried to hoard their wealth:
you stuck with her and you both made a difference because of it.
What do I know about you? I know that when I was a kid you sared playing golf, and you
shot a hole inone. How old were you? Eighty? I know that it terrified your family that you
were still driving to Atlanta in your nineties. I assume that until perhaps this week, you were
still working at your Ace Hardware store. Amazing.
More personally, you showed a genuine interest in me. especially since I returned from work-
ing in the Peace Corps in Mauritania, West Africa. Where some would choose to ridicule my
experience there, you asked good questions, displaying a warm curiosity that made me feel
important. Thank you.
From what I know about )ou, you led a good life. You %sere a good businessman, and you
married a good, strong woman. A large amount of the current history of Port St. Joe wouldn't
exist if it weren't for you and your descendants.
For reasons you may have known. I am unable to come to your funeral. I have heard from oth-
ers that it is the only way to show respect for the deceased However, wherever you are, I am
sure that you can see me here, and know that I have always respeded and loved you. I feel
that although circumstances presented us from gelling to know each other well, in brief,
moments we were able to get to know a little bit of % lhal each other was about.
Thank you for your longevity, so that I could know fir.t-hand where I came from. TI feel lucky
to have met you.
Liked you.
Love, Trey William H. (Trey) Carr, I ... t

sion with the following members present:

UNION GRIEVANCE BILL
NUNERY OPERATION OF EQUIP-
MENT-Wallace Brannon, of International
Union of Operating Engineers, appeared
before the Board to present a union griev-
ance filed in reference to an incident on
May 17th regarding operation of County
equipment at a private auction. He stated
that the equipment should have been oper-
ated by.a County equipment operator, and
discussed private business versus County
business.
Administrator Wells reported that
Randy Sasser, who operated the equipment
at the auction, was hired by Neel Auction
Company and was not compensated by the
County that day. He discussed that the
auction company did not charge the County
anything for holding this auction to sell
County surplus items, and the County
allowed the company to use their equip-
ment.,
Attorney McFarland stated that there
are many occasions when the County may
enter a public/private ,partnership (share
use of equipment, etc ) n a Joint participa-
tion effort. therefore, the Union has no legit.
ini.ite gnrcv.unc,. Upon inquiry by
Commissioner Stanley regarding a non-
operator using the County equipment,
Attorney McFarland reported that the
County could have a liability issue, but not
a union grievance because Mr. Sasser was
not working for the County;
Commissioner Yeager then motioned
to deny the grievance. Commissioner Knox
seconded the motion, and inquired as to
whether there was a County equipment
operator on, site the day of the auction.
AdministratorWells reported that Greg
Pickron was working that day, but he is a
mechanic, not an operator. Upon inquiry by
Commissioner Stanley regarding the exact
grievance issue, Attorney McFarland read
from the Grievance Form that the Grievant
is requesting to be made "whole" for over-
time worked due to misassignment. Mr.
Brannon discussed that the County knew
the equipment was to be used at the auc-
tion, and Commissioner Yeager stated that
this has nothing to do with the grievance
because Mr. Sasser was not hired by the
County to operate the equipment; the
County allowed the Auction Company to
use the equipment because they were sell-
ing surplus items for the County at no
charge. After discussion about use of other
County equipment (licensing, etc.), the
motion passed 3 to 1, with Commissioner
Stanley voting no.
There being no further business and
upon motion by Commissioner Yeager, sec-
ond by Commissioner Stanley, and unani-
,mous vote, the meeting did then adjourn at
5:37 p.m., E.D.T.

do people on certain medications. It
is a common sign of edema (an accu-

While most people rest and raise
their feet to help the swelling to sub-

Shark Talk1
By: Jarred Patterson


The SAT will be given at Port
St Joe High School this Saturday
morning. Students taking the test
are reminded to bring their
admission ticket and some form of
identification.
The varsity football team trav-
elled to Carrabelle and defeated
the Panthers 41-0.'


The victory moved
the Sharks to 3-1.
on the season and
1-0 in district play.
The Sharks
travel to Blounts-
town this Friday to
take on the Tigers.
Come out and sup-
port the Sharks!
Congratulations
to the Purple Pack
for their perfor-
mance in Saturday's
FSU Invitational.


The Sharks finished eighth among
the 31 teams.
The pack was led by senior
Chad Thompson who.placed 32nd
out of the 222 runners. Chad was
followed closely by Keion McNair
and Robbie Dixson who placed
39th and 40th, respectively. The


team will compete this Saturday
in the Panther Invitational In
Newberry. Good luck Purple Pack!
This past Saturday, seven
cadets from the school's NJROTC
corps were taught a CPR course
by Nancy Howze of Marquis Home
Healthcare.
Cadets who
passed the course
will receive certifi-
cates of completion
and are now certi-
fled in CPR. The
school would like to
commend Joshua
McCulley, Melissa
Thumb, Heather
Hayden, Cassandra
Egler, Tracey
Fitzgerald, James
S, Teneyck and Tyler
Lane for their desire
to learn this life-saving skill.
Students are reminded that
this is a three day work week due
to teacher service days this
Thursday (today) and Friday.
Juniors are also reminded
that the HSCT will be adminis-
tered this Monday and Tuesday,


Students will be out of school
Thursday and Friday, this week
while teachers and staff attend
inservice workshops, so they
won't be pulling your leg when
they claim "we don't have to go
today" on Thursday morning.
But, thete will be plenty going
on this week, including Thursday
and Friday. The JV football team
will host Carrabelle Thursday
night at 6:00 p.m., and the varsi-
ty will host CoLtondale Friday
night at 7:00 p.m.
Pre-sale tickets for that game
will go on sale Wednesday at
school, and the bank and the
credit union will have .tickets to
sell. The high school office will not
be open Friday for ticket sales.
Our varsity volleyballers
dropped their first loss of the sea-
son to Blountstown last week,
proving again no one can win
them all. They'll bounce back this
week.
Our JV football team lost to
Apalachicola High School by two
points in a game played Thursday
night, accompanied by a driving
rain storm!
And Friday night, the Gators
almost pulled out a win against
Blountstown in the last seconds,
before falling short 14-12. It did

mythical Greek sea nymphs or
mermaids, so scientists named
them after the Sirens."

'At a recent faculty meeting,
Dr. Bidwell was making several

that Marlene Whitfield was retir-

said, "Sixty-five days." Everyone
laughed. Then Bill Carr said, "You

The Saga Of The Soup Bowl
In 1984, Madge Semmes
retired from teaching without
realizing her goal of making sure
the lunchroom had soup bowls for
serving chill, soup, stew, etc., She
asked me to carry on her quest
about the bowls. Over the years, I
have tried to get bowls, but was
unsuccessful.
Our new lunchroom manager,
Becky Hamm, was somehow able
to get the new bowls. I just had to
call Mrs. Semmes and tell her the
good news.
She was so excited and
offered to buy the spoons to go
with the bowls. The first day we
have a "bowl type" lunch, the
Semmes are coming down to eat!

"Day of Victory" a Unified Season of Prayer


Planned for Sunday Evening In Football Stadium


Calls on All Churches in Community to


Join in Prayer and
Economic uncertainty in the
Port St. Joe community has been
particularly devastating to fami-
lies and churches in the area and
needs to be addressed at a spiri-
tual level. This was the conclu-
S ion of area ministers at a recent
meeting of the Port St. Joe
Ministerial Fellowship.
In an effort to help the com-
munity draw together in their
faith, all Christians in the area
will join together in a day of fast-
ing and prayer for families,
churches and cAmmunity leaders.
The day will conclude with a
meeting at 5 .p.m. Sunday,
October 5th, at the Port St. Joe
High School football stadium.
Many churches are cancelling
their Sunday evening services to
encourage members to attend the
event, which is open to everyone
in the community.
"Perhaps during the many
good years we have enjoyed in our
community, we have misdirected
* our hope and trust in who was
providing for us," said Rev. Curtis
Clark, president of the fellowship
at Long Avenue Baptist Church.
"We may have credited our
prosperity to the large businesses
that provided the economic base
for our city instead of recognizing


Dalkeith Baptist's
31st Homecoming
Rev. John Clenney, pastor of
the Dalkeith Baptist Church, has
announced that the congregation
will hold its 31st Annual
Homecoming on Sunday, October
12th.
Sunday school starts at 9:30
a.m. and the morning service will
begin at 10:30 a.m.
There will be special music to
enjoy during the homecoming
observance. Everyone is asked to
please bring a favorite food and
join them for a joyous day of cele-
bration with the Lord.


Fasting For a Day
that God was the source of our
provision. With plant closings,
lay-offs and future uncertainty, it
is easy to realize why despair and
fear is controlling many people,"
he added.
Clark said that area ministers
have a great burden for their con-
gregations and the community.
They report increasing numbers
of family and financial problems,
along with lower church atten-
dance, as signs that the devil is
using these conditions to weaken
the community's foundation.
On behalf of the ministerial,
fellowship, Clark is calling on
Christians to consider fasting
from 12 p.m. on October 5th until
the conclusion of the 5 p.m. meet-
ing. "Fasting is a way of denying
ourselves and using the time we
would typically spend feeding our
own bodies with physical food to
feed them spiritual food through
extra Bible study and prayer,"
Clark explained.
"Fasting should not be con-
fused as an effort to manipulate
God into doing what we want, but
as a way of opening ourselves to
understanding God and to His
power to accomplish His purpos-
es."
Clark said the ministers'
desire in holding the joint com-
munity service is to help the com-
munity as a whole to open our-
selves to God's power and leader-

The


S" Door

In John 10:9 we find,
"I am the door, if anyone
enters by me, he will be
v saved, and will go in and
Oliver F. Taylor out and find pasture."
Visitation Minister, First
United Methodist Church There are some people
who feel their good works
or personalities will get them salvation. No one
earns salvation; this only comes through the
acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
We who are human need Christ for salvation.
Christ said he came that we might have life and
have it abundantly. However, many people do
not open their hearts and lives to the abundant
life.
If we come 'through the open door which
Christ has offered, we will be different people.
We will have His joy in our hearts to share with
the whole world. Christians know the abundant
life through Jesus Christ. Have you gone
through His door and have.Christ in your life?



MEDITATIONS .OF- ,A A .,



By LOWELL F. ADAMS


. i. : F 7 : "it-
'i; .%-


.,5 OMETIMES Christians slip up and commit sin. Do
they lose the salvation that the blood of Jesus bought for them?
Christians are not kept saved because they never sin. They.
are kept saved because all their sins are laid on Jesus, the Lamb
of God. Jesus paid for all the sins of the whole world with His
own precious blood. When one accepts Jesus as their Lord and
Savior, and sincerely asks for forgiveness, they are born again,
.and the. Holy Spirit abides within them. They become a new
creation, and they want' everything they do to be pleasing to the
Holy Father. However, nothing has happened to the old body of
flesh, which is of this world and naturally sinful. So when
Christians let the desires of the flesh overcome the desires of the
Spirit and commit sin, that sin is laid at the feet of Jesus. His in-
nocent blood, shed on Calvary's cross, cleanses us from all sin.
Does that mean that we can just do.whatever we want to do
and it will. be alright? No, no, a thousand times no! What would
a Christian "want" to do that would displease God? The desire
of a Christian is to not commit sin. Their manner of life is to
please God, and in their heart that is what they want to do. But
our old sinful body gets the upper hand on occasion, and we do
sin. Not intentionally, but it does happen. Christians regret it
I John 2:1-2 tells us it is God's desire that we not sin, but if
we do sin, Jesus, is our advocate and protitiation. He makes
.atonement for us. Like a loving mother of the little child, he
cleanses us and washes our face, daily, moment by moment.
So, Christians consciously "practice" righteousness, but
occasionally they let the flesh overpower the Spirit and they sin.
When that happens they are spiritually devastated, and they be-
gin to feel "lost"; God's Spirit within them is disappointed, but
He does not want us to be discouraged, for He tells us in I John,
3:20 "if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart."
God wants us to walk in the light as Jesus is in. the light,
and He knows the attitude of our heart. He knows when we are
really sorry for our sin. His ear is attuned to our regrets and we
should ask forgiveness. I Cor. 3:12-15 tells us careless Chris-
tians will "suffer loss, but will be saved as though by fire".

Small Reduction In Smoking Population



Yields Big Health and Economic Pavoffs


Just a small annual percent-
age drop in the size of the nation's
population of smokers quickly
pays off with "substantial" health
and economic benefits, a new
analysis shows in today's
American Heart Association Jour-
nal Circulation.
A seven-year program that
reduced smoking prevalence by
only one percent per year would
result in 63,840 fewer hospitaliza-
tions for heart attack and 34,261
fewer hospitalizations for stroke,
resulting in a total savings of $3.2
billion in direct medical costs
alone, California scientists calcu-
late.
Such a program .also would
prevent about 13,100 deaths from
heart attack that occur before
people reach the hospital, say the
researchers, who used Califor-
nia's showcase tobacco control
program as the model for their
analysis. That program began
after the state's voters approved
Proposition 99 in 1988 creating a
tax-funded anti-tobacco educa-
tion program.
Even a one-time, one-percent
reduction in smoking prevalence
brings sizable savings,, with an
estimated 924 heart attacks and
538 strokes avoided in the first
year, resulting in an immediate
savings of $44 million, the study
shows. The University of Califor-
nia researchers conclude that
these figures justify significant
Investment In programs designed
to reduce adult smoking.
"In contrast to cancer and
emphysema, the Impact of smok-
ing cessation accrues rapidly
when heart disease and stroke are
considered." James M. Lightwood.
Ph.D.. and Stanton A. Glantz.
SPh.D., write in Circulation.
"When 'most people think


about smoking, they think about
cancer, and cancer risks associat-
ed with smoking take a long time
to resolve," says Glantz, a prolific
researcher on tobacco's effects on',
health who is professor of medi-
cine in the department of cardiol-,
ogy and the Institute for Health
Policy Studies at the University of
California-San Francisco.
But heart disease is the main
killer from smoking, Glantz notes.
"And because the economic bene-
fits from smoking cessation in
reducing both heart disease and
stroke come so quickly, programs
designed to help people stop ,
smoking will pay for themselves
through the immediate health
benefits and economic savings."
At the individual level, those
savings appear to start modestly,
but rapidly grow to significant
sums that should get the atten-
tion of political leaders and health
providers, he says.
Creating just one new non-'
smoker reduces anticipated med-
ical costs associated with heart:
attack and stroke by $47 in the
first year and by $853 during the
next seven years, the researcher i,
estimates. "If you're an HMO

and stroke decline rapidly over
time due to smoking cessation.
Then they developed statisti-'
cal models incorporating health-
care costs to calculate how the
entire nation would benefit eco-:
nomically if the pace of smoking
cessation nationally were acceler-
.ated to match that seen in
California, where smoking preva-
lence has dropped by about one
. percent during each of the anti-
tobacco program's first seven.
years.
In an editorial accompanying


U.,


the Circulation report, William B.
Kannel, M.D., of Boston Univer-
sity calls the new findings "a
thoughtful analysis designed to
encourage policy-makers to take
appropriate action."
He noted that in the
Framningham (Mass.) Heart Study,
cigarette smoking accounted for
55 percent of heart disease in a
study of participants under age
55. "The preventive potential of
smoking abatement in adult
smokers to avoid coronary dis-
. ease is huge."

.!-*


(health maintenance organiza-
tion) or government insurer that
is dealing with large numbers of
people, the numbers add up and
become quite big. quite fast."'
Unlike earlier programs that-
focused on long-term, "global"
costs of tobacco use, including
lost wages, illness and death, the
researchers this time "went in the
opposite direction"- looking only'
at short-term, out-of-pocket med-
ical costs of caring for smokers.
Many insurance companies
don't pay for smoking cessation,
and preventing tobacco use is not
high on the government's priority
list, Gantz says.
The lesson from California is
that monetary savings from pre-
venting heart attacks and strokes
alone "would basically pay for the
program," says Glantz.
"And that's not counting the
' fact that you're preventing a lot of
other diseases and improving the
health of, the population," he
adds.
Glantz and co-author
Lightwood, a research fellow at
UCSF, based their conclusions on
earlier population -studies show-
ing that the risk of heart disease
