years. In 1983. Mayor Pate expressed 7

and location. Many avenues of finan-
cial resources were explored before
the Florida Communities Trust deter-

guidelines for the trust to buy the
property and deed it to the city.
The Shipyard Cove area was con-
sidered by the trust to be of historical
significance because it was a ship-
yard used for repairing sailing vessels
during the 1830's and 1840's.

"Trickers" Being Treated Friday

The day [or night] the kids have been waiting
for, is almost here; it will be Friday evening.
Beginning at 6:00 p.m., Friday evening, a pa-
rade up Reid Avenue, featuring ghosts and
ghouls, will usher in an evening of trick or treat,
brought on by Halloween.
S : The parade and trick or treat events will be
sponsored by the Port St. Joe merchants'as a
public service event to provide a safe outlet for
the kids to enjoy their Halloween activities.
Prizes will be awarded to three different age
groups for the most Halloween appropriate cos-
tume. One group will be judged in the ages four
and five, another for age group through age nine
and a third age group 10 through 12. First, sec-
ond and third place prizes will be awarded in
each age group. Parents may march in the parade
along with their younger children.
Following the parade, at approximately 6.30,
the merchants will man several booths along
Reid Avenue, handing out 'treats' to the young-
sters enjoying their night out.
With the new lights on Reid Avenue, the area
will be well lit and makes for a safe and fun eve-
ning for all participants.
Motorized traffic will be cleared off Reid be-
fore the parade and the street made available to
the young people's parade and promenade route.
This marks the fifth consecutive year for the
Halloween activity.

Bill Bloemsma 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

accident.
Mexico Beach residents will
'also be considering a referendum
enacting a bed tax ("a user's fee").
The fee is estimated to pro-
duce approximately $177,000
annually. Committee members
say the funds would shift the bur-

tourist-related services and facili-
ties to the users of those services.
SCurrently'; those costs are passed
on to resident .taxpayers in the
form of ad valorem taxes.

resolution for realignment had
been approved as requested.
Changes to the zone configu-
ration include adding a 1/10
square mile area which includes
the proposed county air park
(now Costin Airport) near Jones
Homestead. New lines will also
extend westward to approximate-
ly the Dixie Belle Curve along
Highway 98 (this would include
George Hean Company as
requested). An area along the
Industrial Road, zoned for indus-
trial use, is now included in the
zone's new boundaries.
A 3/4 square mile area west
of Wewahitchka, once being con-
sidered as the site for the county's
industrial park, was removed
from the zone. The current indus-
trial park site, south of
Wewahitchka off Highway 71, is
included in the Enterprise Zone.
Commissioners and
Enterprise Zone Committee mem-
bers requested the boundary line
changes after noting the county's
needs would be better served with
the suggested alterations.
Businesses within the zone
can receive sales tax breaks and
various other incentives from the
state meant to stimulate the local
economy.
Workshop Bed Tax
County commissioners decid-
ed to hold a workshop and dis-
cuss placing a "Bed Tax" referen-
dum on the September 1998 bal-
lot for voter consideration.
Commissioner Tommy Knox
made the suggestion, pointing out
that Mexico Beach and Panama
City are currently in the process
of bring the matter before voters.
Knox said the bed tax is
placed on transient accommoda-
tions (hotels, motels, apartments,
rental units, etc.) and would be
used to finance tourist-related


projects and promotional adver-
tising.
"It would be a way for the peo-
ple using the services to help pay
for them," Knox said.
Commissioner' Billy Traylor
liked the idea also,, stating, "I
think we're on the right track."
Some discussion was. given
exploring the possibility of fund-
ing the tourist development por-
tion of the Gulf County Economic
Development .Committee's work
through the bed tax also.
The board asked its attorney,
Tim McFarland, to investigate
what others have done on the
matter. Board chairman Warren
Yeager said he would check the
board calendar and set up the
workshop date.
Resolution Opposing
Privatization
Board members unanimously
adopted a resolution supporting
the state-operated prison system,
while issuing a statement of dis-
approval of the concept gaining
support in the state legislature to
privatize the prison system's oper-
ations.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
recommended the board consider
the resolution during its first
board meeting of the month.
Board members support the idea
noting how the move could
adversely effect the county if the
state decided to pursue the idea.
The resolution addresses the
position of current Department of
Corrections' employees, benefits
derived from the utilization of
prison inmate labor, efficiency of
operations and public sentiment
concerning prisoner incarcera-
tion.
Commissioners hope to circu-
late the resolution to other coun-

Thumbs Down A


WE'RE PROBABLY RUBBING SOME the wrong way with
what we are about to write, but, so what else is new?
That's our job.
We are going to oppose the hike in pay for city commission-
ers from $125 a month-$50.00 salary and $75.00 travel ex-
pense-to a total income of $300 a month.
The city governors have successfully .resisted attempts to in-
crease commissioner's salaries in the past, and we think we
need to rally to keeping the status quo once more.
WHY DO WE FEEL this way? What reason do we have for
denying the commissioners a raise in pay? It's not because we
don't think they deserve it. We've been there before and know
the city couldn't afford to pay a good commissioner what he is
worth, and a bad commissioner is not worth the salary the city
pays now! ;, ,
It has historically been the experience of the city that keep-
ing the salary low attracts: a better man to attempt to serve. He
is asking for the job because he is interested in the betterment
and welfare of the city, rather than trying to get in on the salary
it pays.
Former long-time commissioner, Tom S. Coldewey, was a
champion of this position; possibly the most knowledgeable and
competent commissioner, this city has ever had. Of course, Tom
had some other ideas which others might not agree with, but
history has proven him right, nonetheless. It was evident that
Coldewey knew what a man was worth in wages paid. Witness,
the position he held:in private life. He, too, opposed hiking the
commission salaries for the city of Port St. Joe.
WE'RE NO METROPOLIS that can afford full-time public
servants. We use part-time officials. The City of Tallahassee is a
good example. That city is currently paying its mayor approxi-
mately $30,000 a year. A faction" has proposed- that it be dou-
bled-much like Port St. Joe's proposal., Even a city the size of
Talahassee recognizes the folly of huge: salaries for its public ser-
vants. There is more than a little opposition there.
In the case of Port St. Joe's proposed salary increase, is the
caliber of person applying for the job going to also -double? Will a
person be required to take a test of competency? No! We'll not be
able to get more man for the money;; we'll simply be required to
pay whatever we get more money and make the job more attrac-
tive to those who would get elected simply to get the salary.



We Like the Sound of It

"CECIL COSTIN BOULEVARD?" We like the sound of it, al-
ready. It has sort of a ring to it .. as well as being appropriate.
We suppose you could appropriately refer to Cecil Costin as Port
St. Joe's "First Citizen." Certainly you could refer to him as the
city's longest lived citizen; one who grew up and matured as the
city grew; one who helped build modern Port St. Joe.
He was an original, not a copy.
Every nation, every city, every county, every state, tends to
memorialize its founders in some way or another; be it through
the naming of parks, streets, buildings, statue, "0r whatever. .
'We don't think a statue would be appropriate to recognize Costin
"as a founder. A statue can merely take Up space and be gazed at
by the people. .
But, a road, a street; that is something to be used every day
by the public. It is a useful entity. Cecil Costin physically tried to
be useful in helping to build Port St.. Joe and care for its people.
Something which would be of use to remember him by would be
more than an appropriate gesture, we think.
IT'S MORE THAN APPROPRIATE that a member of the Co-
stin family didn't suggest the naming of Fifth Street after the pio-
neer and their forebear. It was brought up by Mayor Linton and
unanimously thought to be fitting by the commissioners. We
wholeheartedly agree with them.
When Costin first came to Port St. Joe, the nice divided road,
with its attractive median which now serves as Fifth Street,
didn't exist. It was merely a set of wagon' ruts, which served& as
access to some dozen run-down shacks, where the people of Port
St. Joe lived. Port St. Joe wasn't even a town when Costin ar-
rived on the scene. It was merely, "the place where the old city of
St. Joseph once was." There were no buildings left of the old city;
no houses; only empty, piney woods.
The present appearance of Fifth Street is a relatively recent
innovation to the city;, brought about in the last 60 years-but
that was hardly more than half of Costin's life, wasn't it?

ite trick is to roll the yard and
shrubbery with toilet paper. That
makes a relatively harmless mess
for the homeowner to be faced
with cleaning up.
I saw a cartoon the other day
which showed an adult with a
machine, rolling up the toilet
paper after it had been strewn all
over his yard, and the fellow was
muttering something about not
having to buy toilet paper for at
least a year.
A couple of years ago, I went
to the library and looked up the
origin of Halloween and found out
that it started with the ancient
Druids and was a ceremony
which was intertwined with a re-
ligious ceremony. Today, 'the ,
church stays as far remoired from
endorsing Halloween as possible.


THE TRICKS OF the kids to-
day are mere kid stuff compared
to the tricks kids pulled when I
was one. Of course, that. was a
long time ago and what was ac-
ceptable then is taboo today and
what was taboo then is accepta-

Kids didn't carry a gun

that means talking like a smart

ing your elders. They wouldn't
dare not show their respect to
their elders, regardless of whether
or not he had earned it.

I GUESS THAT'S why kids
did more tricking than ,treating
back when I was a kid.
We just did little acts of mis-
cief against people which they ac-
cepted as merely coming with the
territory of celebrating Halloween.
These little tricks consisted of ac-
tivities such as tipping over out-
houses. Outhouses were little
houses of convenience behind
every house in town. That was be-
fore the days of universal indoor
plumbing.
It would be more than just a
'little trick' against the new out-
"'house which was recently built by
the park service on one of its ma-
jor western parks. This little jew-

shakes.

merchants will all get together
and put on a trick or treat ses-
sion for the kids. They'll all line
up in booths in front of their
storefronts, block off the main
street to traffic and hand out,
free, treats to all and everyone
who will come.after them.
There'll be no sneaking
around, trying to soap someone's
window without getting caught,
or pulling some other trick on
someone.


People

They know they will get a
sack full of 'treats' without having
to resort to 'tricks' or the threat of
tricks. Halloween, in modem
practice, has become different
from the original observance.
Some 'societies' even sacrificed
live human beings and other 'so-
cieties' sacrificed animals--
especially black cats.
We've become more civilized
in applying tricks in the latter
days of the celebration. Now, we
no longer turn over outhouses,
for example, [occupied or unoccu-
pied].

THE. HALLOWEEN of today is
less taxing to the nervous system
than it was in ancient days .
even less taxing than merely 60
years ago. But, it loses something
in the translation.
I'm not saying Halloween is a
holiday for sissies these days but
I am saying that the kids seem to
have lost the zest for this one
night in the year when kids are
allowed a night ou?.

Why just this morning she
asked each of them how he liked
his eggsl I was, to use an old
Hungarian expression, flabber-
gasted! In twenty-four years my
breakfast has been kinda hit or
miss, and a choice?-are you
kidding me!
And after what I considered a
bogus cholesterol count several
years back, eggs arid ham and
bacon-the real stuff-had gone
"the way of the dinosaur for me. I
, pondered on what was happening
in my own house as Hagen wolfed
down a couple of fried eggs and
J6zsef knifed and forked in a
mixer bowl portion of scrambled
ones prepared especially for him.

You talk about a whole new
meaning to your continental
breakfast!
It seemed only natural to call
Hagen "Festus" 'til Cathy pointed
out that we didn't need to appear
rude or uneducated, and in
Germany it was pronounced
"Hawg'in". I quickly, for the sake
of etiquette, enunciation ,and
international relations, went to
yelling "Bubba" when addressing
him.
Once more my serenity, my
quiet reflections, the introspective
moments we all cleave to are bro-

down the hall. Ooly now it's a
stream of East European kauder-

Hagen has -gone off' several
times on lengthy dissertations
pertaining to German history,
people, philosophy, places., etc.,

he's trying to be helpful. And
Cathy listens with rapt attention.
But I tell him to "Save it. It's a
waste of my time. I've learned all
there is to know about Germany

Cathy thinks it's a wonderful
opportunity for us to learn and
share and grow together. I say
that by the amount of my food
Jozsef whips down every day
some of us are certainly going to
do some growing before this thing
is over. Chicken pot pie and

Coastal Setback Resolution
Board members also passed a
resolution asking the state to
change coastal setback line..
boundaries from the Dixie Belle
Curve to the Gulf County line.
The resolution asked for the
new boundary line to be placed
along Highway 98. Currently. it
extends landward across Highway
98 in several locations.
In reading the resolution,
board attorney Tim McFarland
pointed to the' unreasonable
hardship the existing line placed
on "property owners along the
area.'
Commissioners discussing
the idea have said property own-
ers would be in violation of the
regulation any time they do mini-
mal property maintenance pro-
jects or building improvements,
according to the letter of the law.
Representative Jamey
Westbr ok has also offered his
help in getting the lines redrawn
to a more reasonable fashion.'

Gulf county is ranked 17th,
in the state for the highest num-
ber of teen pregnancies. Calhoun'
county ranks number one. The,'
average number of annual births
for Gulf county residents totaled
145, with 67 births to teens,
under the age of 18. "This is too
many instances of children hav-:
ing children," states Doug Kent,
Administrator of the Gulf County
Health Department.
Kent, as well as Alicia'
Maestri, have been instrumental'
in approaching different groups.
such as the Gulf County Juvenile
Justice Council and the Gulf
County Interagency Council,
with their concern encouraging
others to assist with the teen
pregnancy problem.
In response to the alarming
statistics, Gulf county is under-,.,
taking a pro-active approach
with one of the first steps being a
focus group which met Monday
night to brainstorm key initia-
tives to reduce, teen pregnancy"
Included were ways for youth to
feel empowered (through self-
esteem building and learning'
refusal skills) to not feel the pres-
sure of having sex at a young
age.
Approximately 20 Gulf coun;
ty residents, parents (including a
teen mother), teachers, nurses,
social workers, a psychologist,
and other health care profes-
sionals, and a physician attend-
ed the session. A review was led
by Kent on the current 24 health
and education programs that are
provided by two RN's and a social


worker at the Gulf county
schools. Current target ages
begin with second graders and
conclude with seniors, with sub-
ject areas including AIDS aware-
ness, personal responsibility,
, STD's, refusal and social training
skills, puberty, and the teenage
parenting program.
Small groups formed sugges-
tions to combat the teen preg-
nancy problem and key sugges-
tions were identified as follows:
1. survey the parents and stu-
dents in separate groups to
determine needs and limitations
for sex education and birth con-
trol; ,. provide more social skills
training, i.e.: refusal skills, goal
setting, self-esteem and key
speakers; 3. develop a communi-
ty awareness :,campaign that
includes publicity and parent,
ministerial and business educa-
tion and involvement. Also, form-
ing a partnership to provide more
after-school activities; 4. set; up a
teen parent mentoring program
to have teen moms and dads
educating other teens about their
experience; 5. provide earlier
education for children; 6. contin-
ue to educate the community on
existing support systems, such
as crisis hot-line, free family
planning and life skill manage-
ment programs.
The next step in focusing on
the teen pregnancy issue
includes surveying the parents
and children to, further evaluate,
initiatives. In addition, other
meetings and sessions willfcon-
tinue.

CORRECTION

correct name should have been,

The Star regrets this mistake.


Port St. Joe won the "battle of
the Sharks" and clinched a play-.
off berth with their 20-6 win over
Apalachicola Saturday evening:
St. Joe scored three second-
half touchdowns to erase a 6-0
deficit and even their record at
4-4; 2-0 in District 4-2A. The loss
by Apalachicola dropped them out
of the district race and set the
stage for the final game of the s.-,
son, between Port St. Joe aid
Wewahitchka, to determine riot'
only the county championship,:
but also the district title and all
important play-off seeding.
The game was moved to-
Saturday night due to the
inclement weather that passed
through the- Panhandle Friday.
Apalachicola's Sharks drew
first blood, taking advantage of a
Port St. Joe fumble at the
Apalachicola 36 yard line.
Kelvin Martin reeled off runs
of 30 and eight yards before quar-
terback Brock Johnson connected
with Mario Lane for a 12 yard
touchdown pass. The point after
attempt failed.
Port St. Joe bounced back in
the second half of play. Tyson
Pittman returned the third quar-
ter kick-off to the Apalachicola 29
yard line-nearly breaking free for
a touchdown.
On fourth down, quarterback
Jarred Patterson found James
Daniels in the end zone for a 26,


yard touchdown pass and recep-
tion to tie the game 6-6. Port St.
Joe's point after attempt was
blocked by Apalachicola. .o
St. Joe took the lead with
6:26 remaining in the fourth
quarter.
Patterson and Daniels found
pay dirt again, this time connect-
ing for a 59 yard touchdown pass
play. Tyson Pittman added runs
of 32 and six yards to the five-
!play, 82 yard drive. Patterson
found Daniels in the end zone one
more time to convert the two point
try and Port St. Joe took a 14-6
lead.
Wayne Summers and Tyson
Pittman provided a few insurance
points moments later. Summei-s
intercepted an Apalachicola pass
attempt and raced 44 yards to the
six yard line. Pittman bulled into
the end zone on first and goal
from the six yard line to put St.
Joe on top 20-6.
Defensively
Jason Brant led St. Joe
defensively with 13 tackles, one
caused fumble, one fumble recov-
ery, and two tackles 'for a loss.
Kyle Adkison followed with 12
tackles.
Jermaine Peterson and Tyson
Pittman added nine tackles each.
Pittman also was credited with


Views On 'Dental Health

FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.


First Sign of


Periodontitis


If your gums bleed easily
when you brush your teeth,
this may indicate you have a
serious form of gum disease
known as periodontitis.
Periodontal disease is the
number one cause of tooth
loss in adults. This disease
attacks the gum tissue and
supporting bone structure. As
the gum and supporting bone
gradually deteriorate, this
causes the teeth to become
loose and eventually fall out.
Dental plaque, an accumu-
lation of harmful bacteria that
is constantly forming on teeth,
is believed to be the chief
cause of inflammation of the
gums and tooth decay.


Gum disease in its early
stages (gingivitis) is an easie'ri
problem for your dentist to
treat. When treatment is
neglected or put off, however,
early gum disease progressed
to periodontal disease,- and,
eventually loss of teeth.
Prevention is the best way
to prevent this from happening
to you. This should include,
not only good oral hygiene
habits at home, but regular
professional cleaning.

Prepared as a public service to pro-
mote better dental health. From the
office of FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.,

Session to Come Up With Strategic and Visioning Plan for Gulf County Schools

Hilda Cox, Consultant, Leads First :..-
Session Attended by Gulf Co. Residents __
L M ;R W-mo J !'nl.i".i i


Last Thursday and Friday,
Gulf County School
Superintendent Jerry Kelley
hosted a strategic planning and
visioning session, attended by
approximately 35 Gulf county
residents who were representa-
tive of many facets of the com-
munity. The idea of a community
plan was raised by Kelley at the
October 7th school board meet-
ing in response to continued
issues raised by the members of
the community, who later formed
the Citizens for Academic
Excellence. The strategic plan-
ning and visioning session is the
first step, of many, to reach a
consensual and innovative plan
to revitalize, improve and create
the best in Gulf county schools.
Hilda Cox. a consultant who
has retired from education, facil-
itated the planning and visioning
session at no cost to the district.
She will return on November
12th for the first follow-up ses-
sion to, further evaluate the top
three initiatives.
The following vision state-
ment, viewing the next five years,
was created by-all participants'
input and agreement,-"The. Gulf
District School System addresses
all students' needs and abilities
in a safe, nurturing and encour-
aging environment by providing
adequate facilities ,and relevant,
rigorous':education. The Gulf
District.;School System .commu-
nicates and involves parents,
teachers, and community leaders
regarding the daily needs and the
long range goals of our chil-
dren."- ,
The vision statement is to
outline an .image of the desired
future for Gulf county schools.
Key initiatives were finalized
by creating and improving cur-
rent programs or components of
the Gulf county schools. Eight



Rotary

Club Hosts

Dist. Gov.
Rotary District Governor Mil-
ton E. Ceraso paid his official vis-
it.to the Port St. Joe Rotary Club
last Thursday at its regular noon
n meeting.
Governor Ceraso "developed,
the question, 'rWhy are we here?"
He answered his own question
with the observation. 'We are
here for fellowship, interesting
programs and to get away from
the same old routine, day after
day and week after week.", -
"But our number one reason
we are here Is to carry out the Ro-
tary motto, 'Service Above Self."
Then he went on to explain
the word 'service' means different
things to different people and
runs the language gamut in us-
age from an adjective, to a verb,
to a noun. "It all depends on how
we use the word," he said.
He went, on to explain that
one application of the word had
been ;applied by Rotary to the
eradication of polio in 159 coun-
tries of the world: Then he called
on the service club to use the
same energy and resources in the
eradication of illiteracy and help,
meet the needs of children.
"If we can eradicate polio in
the world, we can surely teach
every citizen of the world to read
and figure numbers and meet the,
needs of children," he said. "No
person can meet their own needs
until he can communicate with
others by reading and writing and
: he can't function, in this world
until he can figure out where he
stands in relation to other peo-
ple."
He challenged the club to
show the world that Rotary cares.
"Be there for your community,
your world, and the world's peo-
ple in '97 and '98."
Guests of the club were Mike
Lynch and Tom Ritter of Port St.
Joe. Governor Ceraso's wife, Dee,
was traveling with him.

Bats: Myth

& Reality
Although bats are among the
most beneficial creatures on,
earth, they are also one of the
most misunderstood animals in
the world. Many people believe
bats are rodents, a sort of flying
house. In fact, bats are actually
more, closely related to humans
since they are the only true flying
mammal known to man.
Throughout the tropics, bats are
vital to the survival of rain forests
due to their role in seed dispersal
and pollination. Here in, the;
United States, bats consume vast
numbers of insects thereby con-
trolling crop pests and disease
spreading insects.
Among the 1,000 species of
bats worldwide, 39 have been,
identified to live In the U.S. Over
1/4 of these species are either on,
or are official candidates for. the
federal list of endangered species.
On Thursday, November 13th
from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m., Erik
Lovestrand, Education Coordi-
nator at the Apalachlcola Reserve,
will be offering some Insight on
bat behavior. The reserve is locat-
ed at the end of Market Street, at

MEDITATIONS OF A
tountrf v rtadpr g .

By LOWELL F. ADAMS


God Wants You!
To Be Redeemed
" The Lord is longsuffer-.
ing to us.. not willing that
any should perish.. "
II Peter 3:9


CT HERE is a saying about the Gospel message of the
Bible Book of Romans. It is.called "The Roman Road to the
Throne of God" Every book in the New Testament tells us
about our need for-salvation and how to obtain it. But some of
the messages are more- clearly presented than others, and
Romans is one of those clearly stated messages. Even a little
child can understand. The milestones in that "road" are:
1. The Gospel of Jesus is the Power of God unto salvation
to everyone who will believe. (Romans 1:16) The word,
"Gospel" meals "Good News". What better news when we are
doomed, than to know we have a Savior?
2. All have sinned, and fallen short of the Glory of God.
(Romans 3:23) We need God's salvation. We inherited our
sinful nature from our ancestors, Adam and Eve. Born in sin,
our natural disposition is to rebel against God's Law, ,We will
always be so until we are bornm again" of the Holy Spirit
through exercising our faith in the wonderful name of Jesus.
3. The wages of sin is death! As sinners, we are all under,
the penalty of death. (Romans 6:23) The only hope you and I
have to avoid a living death of separation from God and His
eternal blessing, is to accept God's provision for our condition,
available only through faith in His Son, Jesus.
4. Our GIFT from God is eternal life (salvation from the
penalty of sin). Jesus gave His life and died a cruel and horrible
death on Cal vary's cross, to pay our sin debt. (Romans 5:8)
5. We can. not "earn" our salvation, for it is a gift.The only'
price- God requires from :, us is faith in Jesus. .By the Grace.
(compassion and mercy) of 'God the Father, We will be saved
wheni'in our heart we believe God's Truth concerning Jesus.
Faith in Jesus, confession of our sins, and asking forgiveness,
will bring us Spiritual rebirth (salvation). (Romans 10:9)
May God lead us all straight down that Roman Road to the
realization that God truly does love us, and has freely given us.
The Way, The T.ruth, and The Life, for our eternal destiny.


St. James Hosting Fall


Bazaar November 15th


Plans for St. James Episcopal
Church's annual "Fall Bazaar"
have been announced by Bernice
Stickle, chairman.
Beginning at 8:00 a.m. on
Saturday, November 15th, a con-
tinental breakfast will be served
and various booths will be
opened. These will include the
always popular 'bake sale,
Christmas table, plants, chil-
dren's table, Christmas tree and


quilted items.
'Red, white and hot chill, rice,
crackers, and iced tea will be
available for lunch for only $2.50,
with dessert extra at 50C.
A lovely white afghan, hand-
crafted by a 90 year old man, an
antique cane chair and an angel
wall hanging with matching
Christmas tree skirt will be the
featured items in a giveaway
fundraiser.


Sinners

In Psalm 32:1 we find,


"Blessed is he whose/
....transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered."
God does not approve of
sin, but God is a loving
God. He sent his Son to
Oliver F. Taylor offer forgiveness for our
Visitation Minister. First sins. In our humanity we
United Aethodist Church ins. In our humanity we
are not perfect. We make
mistakes.
Christians ieed discipline to keep the faith
and live as Christ intends us to live. We can't do
it alone. We need Christ to guide us and to be
empowered by the Holy Spirit. Too often in our
pride we think we can do, if alone. Every
Christian needs to be close to God and to stay
away from temptation.
Someone has described Christians as forgiv-
en sinners. We should be less condemnatory
and more forgiving. However, everyone should'
still obey both the legal and moral law. Christ
will help us when we 'are tempted by sin.

School News

In Port St. Joe Middle School
sports last week, the girls' cross
country team celebrated their per-
formance against Apalachicola.
Also, the Athletic Boosters are
asking donations of two dollars'
for a chance. to win 'a: shotgun.
The prize will be given away the
day of the .Christmas parade.
There will also be a prize given to
the student who sells the most
tickets. 'Support.our sports and
get your ticket today. .
One project sponsored by the
.PSJMS Athletic Boosters will
become a reality on Tuesday,
November 4, when they honor the
football team in a banquet to close
their season. All gridiron players
and cheerleaders, and coaches of
course, are encouraged to attend.
Friday of this week, the fourth.
annual "Halloween Dance" will be
held. All teachers and students
are encouraged to wear a cos-
tume.
Also, there will be a, costume
contest. For the students' enjoy-
ment, refreshments will be sold
by the Student Council. All cos-
tumes must be appropriate for'
school and all hats must be a part
of the costume or .they will be con-
.fiscated.
We are celebrating "Red
Ribbon Week" with movies and
stickers prompting the benefits of
a drug-free life. Drive by and see
our beautiful red banner pro-
claiming this celebration.
Our students and teachers
are striving to improving writing
at Port St. Joe Middle School. On
Monday, we set aside' a class
period for "Write It Right".
"Write It Right" is a program
aimed at teaching a new writing
skill'each week and allowing stu-
dents to practice their newly
acquired sill by responding to an
assigned topic. At. .Port St. Joe
Middle School our goal is to "Write
It Right!" More next week on our
writing efforts.


Depending on how you look
at it, the weather dominated
things last week! It caused a move
of the Chattahoochee game to
Monday night, which was won
easily by the Gators. The Sharks
also won Saturday night over
Apalachicola, setting up a match
between us'n and them'm for the
District Championship!
Our game also brought on the
first cold weather of the year, with
a brisk north wind dropping the
chill factor down to frigid. I guess
we were getting ready for Liberty
County (there) Friday night. It
seems like when we play there it's
always cold!
Report card (and parent sur-
vey) pick-up night came and
went-only 91 out of 405 cards
were picked up by parents, but 9 1
survey forms were the most we've
ever gotten back. Results will be
tabulated and passed on to our

Our "Open House" last
Thursday was a success and a
'pleasure. We had a great turnout
and 83% of our students from
grades one to six were represented
by at least one parent. We appreci-
ate the help from our teachers and
Vivian Floyd for the delicious'
refreshments.
* The fourth grade class had
100% participation and grades two
and five were close behind; each'
with only one parent unable to
attend. We appreciate the parental
involvement in our school. We
believe that a' home, school,
church cooperative effort is'neces-
sary for' our children to "grow in'
wisdom and favor with God and

Tale".
A New Beginning
by Suzanne Davis
School has started for the 97-
98 school year. This is my last


year, and for some, this is their
first year. Any way y6u look at it,
this is a new year, a time to make'
changes that will prepare you for
the future. Especially for myself, it,
is time to think about college and,
adulthood.
' Some of you middle-sehoolers
may think, "Hey, I'have a few more
years before I have to be serious,"'
but you don't! The time to get seri-
ous is how, if you have not
already. Don't wait until it is too
late. Take advantage of education;
it is here for you. The time to learn
is now.
;' This senior 'plans to take
'advantage of the education offered
to us. Whatever you decide to do;
this year, make sure it is profitable;
for learning. II Timothy 2:15 says,

Cool Weather is Here-Install Smoke and Carbon



Monoxide Detectors; Have Heating System Inspected


Cool weather comes later to
Florida than to the rest of the
country-but that is no reason to
be less cautious when it comes to
heating our homes. Home heating
equipment is the No. 1 cause of
home fires, accounting for two of
every five home fires during the
winter :months. With, proper
installation, service and use of
heating equipment. most of these
fires could be prevented.
Many deaths and injuries
occur in fires that happen while
the victims are asleep. To provide
sufficient alarm, every dwelling
should have at least one
Underwriters Laboratories ap-
proved (UL) smoke detector near
each bedroom. Two-story homes
should have at least one smoke
detector on each level.
To operate properly, fuel-
burning home heating equipment'
must have an adequate, air sup-
ply; Lacking this supply, the
equipment may produce carbon
monoxide (CO), an invisible, silent
killer that takes an estimated 900
lives each year in the U.S.
CO is produced when fuels
are Incompletely burned, so any
heater that burns fuel is a poten-
tial source of carbon monoxide.
For this reason, fuel-burning
heaters should be vented to the
outside unless equipped with a
special safety device.
When an unvented fuel-burn-
ing space heater without such a
safety device is in use, a window,
should be opened slightly to pro-
vide adequate ventilation: and the
heater should be turned off at
night.
The symptoms of CO poison-
ing mimic those of the flu. At low
levels, It can cause headaches,
nausea and drowsiness: at higher
levels, vomiting, loss of con-
sciousness and death.
Consumers are advised to
have their home heating system-;
incliding fireplaces and chim-


neys-inspected by a,, qualified
technician prior to each heating
season.
In addition, at least one car-
bon monoxide detector that meets
UL standard 2034 should be
installed in the hall outside bed-
rooms. The detector will sound an
alarm before the CO level in the
home becomes hazardous.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services also recommends these
additional home heating safety



Rural Foil

Secretary of State Sandra B.
Mortham has announced that the
1997 Rural Folklife Days at, the
Stephen Foster State Folk Culture
Center in White Springs are
scheduled for November 3-7.'
"Rural Folkilfe Days are a
wonderful time for children to
learn about the history and tradi-
tions of rural Floridlans in North
Florida," Secretary Mortham said.
The event which attracts
thousands of school students
from around the state will feature
demonstrations and activities
reflecting the traditional work and
leisure pastimes of rural people in
North Florida.
Many farm families grind
siigar cane to make syrup. boll lye
and fat for soap, can fruits and
vegetables from their, gardens,
and construct quilts. Leisure time
is often filled with storytelling,
square dancing and playing
games such as horseshoes.
Admission is $4.00 per per-
