Marina Committee members,
concerned citizens and the city
commissioners gathered Tuesday
afternoon to share their views and
ask questions about the project.
Funds to finance the estimat-
ed $3.5 million marina have been
a bone of contention since the
idea originated approximately 2
1/2 years ago. $875,000 in grant
funds have been accumulated to
help fund the. marina, but how
the remaining estimated $2.5 mil-

"As grant deadlines have got-
ten closer- (December 1997 for

not the case. The intent of the
committee had always been to

County Gives KMT Firm
Final Payment On Highland
View Water Project Tuesday
To Regulate Unsightly Mobile Homes Throughout County;
Asks DEP to Consider Making Change to Coastal Setback
Shown above is part of the crowd in attendance at a pub-
lic hearing Tuesday evening to discuss the subject. The
crowd applauded the commission's decision.
County commissioners made
final payment to KMT Construc-
tion for refurbishing the Highland
View Water System during their
Tuesday evening meeting.
Commissioner Tommy Knox
told the board that 100% of the
Highland View residents had been
lied into the new system. The sys-
tem's upgrade was paid for by a
$600.000 Community Develop-
ment Block Grant.

Mexico Beach Qualifying Is Over Second Suspect Nabbed
Mexico Beach City Councilman, Group 4, Bud Jones drew no
opposition for his reelection bid to one of two city council seats
on the November 4th ballot.
Bill Bloemnsma and Mike Norman will vie for the Group 5
council seat. Bloemsma was appointed by the council to finish
the unexpired term of Councilman Jim Taylor, who recently lost
his life in a tragic accident.
Mexico Beach residents will also be considering a referendum
enacting a bed tax (preferably called "a user's fee").
The fee is estimated to produce approximately $177,000
annually. Committee members say the funds would shift the bur-
den of financing and maintaining tourist-related services and
facilities to the users of those services. Currently, those costs are
passed on to resident taxpayers in the form of ad valorem taxes.
Funds estimated to be generated are based on a 3% fee being
placed on all motels, hotels, RV park rentals, apartments, cot-
tages and various other rental units used for short term occu-
pancy-overnight to six months.
Gulf County Sheriffs

It was reported in last week's
edition of The Star that Jeffry Eric

Assisted by units of the Lynnh
Haven Police Department, Godwin

and approached him to make the
arrest. McKeithen said Richards
attempted to resist arrest by
using a child as a shield between
him and the arresting officers.
Richards reportedly stated he
would not be taken alive.
At that point, the officers
physically subdued him without

Mobile Home Ordinance
Unsightly mobile homes being
set up around the county once
again drew the attention of the
Commissioner Billy Traylor
resurrected the idea of control via
ordinance. He stated that numer-
ous mobile homes have been
moved to the county that are not
only unsightly, but create a fire
and safety hazard for those resid-
ing in them.
During discussion, board
members agreed with Traylor's
assessment of the problem.
Al"l mobile homes currently in
the tcodnty would be grandfa-
""'thered' lnr' under .aniy ordinance
approved by the board, but future
installations would be regulated.
Traylor asked board members
to consider the ordinance idea
again and discuss revisions that
would correct the problem at the
next board meeting.
Want To Change Coastal
Commissioner Tommy Knox
asked the board to draft a letter to
DEP requesting the coastal set-
back lines be changed from the
Dixie Belle Curve to the Gulf
Knox's request was for the
line to be established down the
middle of Highway 98. Currently,
it extends landward across
Highway 98 in several locations.
Some property owners have
been advised that they were vio-
lating coastal setback require-
ments in recent months, prompt-
ing Knox's suggestion.
By the letter of the law, prop-
erty owners would be in violation
of the regulation anytime they do
minimal property maintenance
projects or building improve-
ments.. 1 :
The board agreed with the
idea. Representative Jamey
Westbrook has also offered his
help in getting the lines redrawn
to a more reasonable fashion.

School's Problems Promised A Solution
WE NOTED IN THIS space several weeks ago that it ap-
peared as if every school district in Florida was in financial trou-
ble, just as the Gulf County system was, along with every county
system in the Panhandle .neighborhood. Citizen's groups are be-
ing formed in almost every county in an effort to solve the prob-
lems each county is faced with.
Well, have no fear. Help is on the way. We are confident the
situation is just before getting better, as every announced and
unannounced candidate for governor has made his intentions
known and expressed his intentions to "help the schools."
Buddy MacKay is the latest one to make this 'unique' prom-
Jeb Bush has announced support of this popular platform
The ones running for cabinet positions are also supportive of
the schools. Our fax machine has received reams of announced
intentions to support the schools from almost every member of
the House and Senate-whether he is a candidate this coming
year or not. .
So the schools should be well taken care of.
BUT, WE THINK THE school's primary needs are something
other than bushels of dollar bills, although, we 'suppose every'
district in the state can use more money.
We're not so naive as to fail to believe that the political "ser-
vant's" solution mostly stems from patching the system up by
throwing more and more of our dollar bills at it. That has been
the main topic of discussion in the past and we see no evidence
of this situation changing in the future.
But Education Commissioner Brogan put the matter in prop-
er perspective on his visit to Port St. Joe last week. He said the
primary 'problems deal with Johnny and Sally having an inability
to read, write and cipher. To paraphrase his address, he said
that no amount of money could teach these skills to students
and that;a school wasn't doing its job [meaning teachers and ad-
ministration] where this was the situation and "these schools
had just as well be put out of business."
WHAT WE'RE SAYING here, is, there's enough blame to go
around when it comes to reasons for sub-standard schools. In
many cases it is with the schools and faculty, itself, as much as
it is the fault of the tax system failing to fund them adequately.
ONE MILLION MAN HOURS worked without a lost-time ac-
cident! That's quite an achievement!
The paper mill, located here in Port St. Joe, has achieved
this enviable mark only twice in its 60 years of operation--once
in the 60s and the other, just recently. St. Joe Paper Company
owned the mill the first time it realized its milestone achieve-
ment, the other time, it was under its present ownership.
SMill- management must not be too accustomed .to setting
such a, record; witness, their reaction at the recent achievement
of their work force.
Ferrel Allen mill general manager, says it is an unusual ac-
complishment in the industry and the local mill should be proud
its employees work safe enough to set such a record locally.
GIVEN THE NEED TO handle the thousands of pine trees
they handle in the paper-making process and the heavy, heavy,
machinery used to reduce them into pulp; the high speed, bulky
equipment it takes to form the paper from the treated pulp: the
sheer weight and speed with which the mill turns out its fin-
ished product, all adds to an accident just waiting to happen.
If we were all familiar with: the paper-making process, we
would all probably stand: in awe at the sheer accomplishment
the various employees have managed in setting this record..
So, Florida Coast. Paper, we will join you in this salute to
your employees for realizing this formidable record.
The incidences of someone being scalded by the high pres-
sure steam; being horribly burned by the liquor used in the
cooking process; being caught in the speedy machinery or being
mashed under tons of rolls of paper, is all too probable for many
people to fathom the danger involved. It would have been so easy
for someone to be hurt and explain it away with, "that's the
breaks you get in this business the chance you have to

Dear Worn Out,
I'm sure everyone has felt
down for a few days in their lives,
I know I have. It's when that
"worn out" feeling lingers on that
it becomes of concern.
First of all, when was the last
time you had a medical check-up?
A health problem maybe causing:
your lethargy. Are you taking your'
vitamins and eating nutritious,
Second, what are you doing
for fun? Do you visit with family
and friends often? Do you partici-
pate in exercise or other activities,
that require physical exertion?
Third, has anything unusual
happened to you lately? Have you
lost or gained a job, had a change
in a major relationship (marriage
or divorce), or had a major illness
or death among your family or
If so, you may be experiencing
an adjustment reaction or mild
depression. I suggest you get a
health clearance first, and discuss
with your physician, how you are
feeling. If he or she feels like you
might benefit from counseling to
help you deal with this worn' out
feeling, the Gulf County Guidance
Clinic in Port St. Joe can help.

Wewahitchka Women's Club
Meets; Make Plans for Events
The regular meeting of the
Wewahitchka Woman's Club took
place on Wednesday, October 8th
in the Gulf Coast Cooperative
lounge. Ruth Hall presided over
the meeting for the 19 members
and two guests in attendance.
Prior to the business meeting,
Ben Lanier, assisted by his wife
Glynnis, spoke to the group on
his role as a local beekeeper. Ben
related how his grandfather, L. L.
Lanier, came to Wewahitchka 100
years ago to set up the beekeeping
enterprise which harvests nectar
from the rare tupelo gum that
grows- along -the banks of the
Apalachicola River. The business
later passed to Ben's father.
Lavernor, who has now stepped
aside for Ben to take over.
A lively question and answer
session was the focus for the pro-
gram. Much interest was sparked
from members having seen the
movie "Ulee's Gold" which was
filmed in this area. Ben described
the difficulties in making tupelo
honey-the importance of timing
in beginning the extraction
process and the dangers posed to
the bees by mites.
Following the program, plans
were discussed for the Christmas
Bazaar to be held at Lake Alice
Park on December 6th. Also, it
j' was voted to send letters of
request to Serator Pat Thomas
and Representative Jamey
Westbrook asking for state funds
to build a new public health facil-
ity'in Port St. Joe. Members will
work to get an upgrading of the
facility in Wewahitchka.

Views On Dental health
FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.
Even if you use the best
oral hygiene techniques at
home, it may be difficult to
keep harmful bacteria from
attacking two of its favorite
targets: your teeth and your
gums. Tooth decay and gum
disease are the result, and, if
left untreated, may threaten
loss of teeth.
In a healthy mouth, each
tooth sits firmly in its socket,
separated by a thin mem-
brane or ligament composed
of millions of fibers as well as
blood vessels, nerves, lym-
phatics, and cells.
The purpose of the liga-
ment is to prevent the tooth
from being too tightly com-
pressed in its socket. If your
gums are healthy, they attach
to your teeth just above the
bone crest. This is where the
uppermost portion of the root
emerges from the bone.
Even in healthy gums and
teeth there is a space
between gum and tooth. If
this space should be attacked
by bacteria, both tooth and
gum as well as supporting
bone may be threatened.
That's why prompt treatment
of any signs of gum disease

mote better dental health. From the

The.five year trend shows an

encouraged to pick up pamphlets

his school for four years before he
had been elected to the team.
However, he had still done his best

it to get banana chips that the' .

MEDITATIONS OF A
By LOWELL F. ADAMS .
Lost vs. Saved
What's the difference?
"Many walk.. whose end
is destruction.. who mind
CTHE BIBLE is full of declarations of the lostness of
humanity. The Old Testament is well-supplied with prophecies
of the coming of Jesus, who would be the Savior of these lost
souls. The New Testament tells of His birth, His life, His
ministry, and His sacrificial death for humanity's sins. In other
words, Jesus is the Heart of the Bible, God's eternal Truth.
In the 14th chapter of the Gospel of John, Jesus assures His
apostles He is the Savior, and no one would ever see heaven and
the Holy Father without His help. During those days many
people saw the power of Jesus, watching as He performed
miracles that had never been seen before, and yet some walked
away in disbelief. IE John 5:39-40 Jesus said toso6me of these.
disbelievers, "Search the Scriptures; for in them you think you
have eternal life; and,they are they which testify of me. And you
will not come to me that you might have life."
There are many people who, live a "good" life and see no
need to become a believer and follower of Jesus. Some say "I
am just as good as any of those people down there at that
church!" No doubt they probably are just as good, but people
are not saved because they are "good." Salvation comes from
accepting God's plan of redemption, Jesus Christ, His Son.
In Ephesians Chapter 2, verse 8, The Word says "By
Grace. are you saved through FAITH; and that not of
yourselves: it is THE GIFT of God."
Jesus often used parables to convey His Truth to listeners.
Let me try one: A group of people are on a small boat way out,
in the Gulf fishing. They dor't have life preservers, and the
water is awfully rough. The boat begins to take on water and is
about to sink. The shore is tob far away for swimming, and the
water is too rough anyway. Just before the little craft sinks, a
large boat comes alongside and offers salvation from their.
certain disaster. A few of those doomed fishermen climb'
thankfully aboard the rescue vessel, but some of them refuse,
saying, "I don't believe that man can save us. You can believe
him if you vwaS 'm..a good navigator, and I'll just take my
chances without him'" Tragically, many people, say that about
Jesus' offer of rescue from a much more terrible disaster.

Oliver F. Taylor proclaimed a "Day *of
Visitation Minister, First Victory". Laity and clergy
United Methodist Church joined hands and hearts.
In Jeremiah 29:11 we find, "For I know the
plans I have for you, says the Lord, 'plans for
welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and
a hope." God has blessed us in the past, and He
will continue to be with us in the future.
Most of us are comfortable with the past, and
want to hold on to the "'good old days." However,
this is a time of testing our faith. We need to
hold on to our faith in God. God will give us a
future and a hope as He promised the people in
Jeremiah's day. It will not be those things of the
past. After a time of transition I believe God has
greater things for us.
Our closing hymn at the service was
"Because He Lives." The first line of the chorus
of the hymn is "Because He lives I can face
tomorrow." 'Christians can face every tomorrow
with Jesus as our Saviour. "

Bottom fishing has been reduced to a minimum during the last week,
due to the wind. We were. able to slip one day in and had a good catch of
grouper and snapper. Inshore king fishing has been real good around the
buoy line' using dusters and plain cigar minnows. Live bait has produced
larger kings by drift fishing.
