Now Is Your Chance To Be Heard
WE'RE FOREVER COMPLAINING ABOUT the curriculum
our schools have to offer. There is a group which thinks the
schools don't offer courses which challenge the students enough
and there is that faction which complains because the learning
standards "are just entirely too high." There is also the number
who feel the schools are offering just the right amount of courses
with the proper level of difficulty attached to the work which
should be accomplished. There are some who agree with social
advancement from onegrade to another and those who feel a
high standard should be set and the student required to meas-
ure up in order to advance from one grade to another.
By and large, the largest argument one can get involved in, is
the argument about the difficulty of the subject matter and
whether or not it will prepare the student for "making it" in this
Some cast aspersions on whether or not the youth of today
are "getting an education which would match his" of 20 or 30
years ago, for these reasons they question today's results.
WELL, NOW IS YOUR chance to have input toward the cur-
riculum and offerings of a brand new level of education to be of-
fered in Port St. Joe and Gulf County. If you don't get involved in
the planning of a curriculum, like failure to vote, you will have
no right to complain if the curriculum doesn't fit your needs or
We're talking about your attendance at the public meeting to
hash out the subjects, which will be offered at the new Gulf/
Franklin' center, which is now under construction here in town
by Gulf Coast Community College. The curriculum is not set in
stone as yet. You have the right to be heard. You also have the
right not to have your wishes followed if you do not participate.
THE LOCAL BRANCH OF THE college can be a godsend to
Port St. Joe,. or it can be an exercise in futility. It all depends on
what we, as citizens, offer as input.
It all depends, also, upon our level of involvement after the
college is ,opened for business next fall. It's going to take some fi-
nancial and moral support. These things don't operate on their
own steam, as you have found out with our local secondary
schools. They require our interest and our support in order to
flourish and do well.
So, be at the high school cafeteria on Tuesday, November 11
at 7:00 p.m. and let your voice be heard. Take an active part.
Right On Target
THE COUNTY COMMISSION is right on target in, approving
a resolution opposing the switch of the prison system over to a
private operation, we believe. If, from a selfish motive only, the
commission is on track to support the continued operation of
the prison system by the state of Florida.
We have two prison facilities here in Gulf County and we uti-
lize their attributes as a trade-off for any undesirable traits they
may have. Our- communities ,properlyutilize the, inmates as an
auxiliary labor force. to work on our parks, streets, etc., to do la-
bor-intensive tasks. It also allows the inmates to work off any
undesirable energies they may have and save the state a lot of
money from enforcing the problems which accompany Idleness
mixed with incarceration.
TOO, PRIVATIZATION DOES NOT necessarily mean econo-
my of operation. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize it
costs just as much for' a security officer to live, whether he
works under the privatization or the public taskmaster. The re-
quirements of operating a prison would be the same, too. The. in-
mate-guard ratio would be the same. The support personnel
would be the same and require the same amount of preparation.
The housing level and condition would not be any less than it is
under government operation.
Government operation is what attracts most prison workers
to the job. They know it is secure and the retirement and other
benefits are fair. If they were required to be equal under privati-
zation, where would the savings be? :
Industry is beginning to back off from the recent practice of
releasing career employees in favor of temporary tradesmen be-
cause they have found that it is a bad deal. The worm is starting
to turn [even. though recent experience in Gulf County may not
point to that] in favor of a good solid, career, work force; one a
company-or prison-knows they can depend upon and hold re-

But other than that small de-

how popular football is; especially
these two particular, games. When
you have to postpone stormy

you have a powerful lobby.

I' remember one time, back in
the late 50's, we were feeling our
oats because we had a team
which, couldn't be beaten. We had
defeated just 'about ,everything
which' had had the misfortune to
walk on the field with us.
The final game of the season,
that year, pitted the Sharks
against the Shalimar club. Shali-
mar wasn't any small team. I
don't remember what class they
were, but suffice it to say, they
were ranked above us.
But we had won all those
games-even against Bainbridge,
Ga.-and couldn't be beaten.
WE DROVE TO Shalimar
that night, in a driving rain, to
whip up on Shalimarl When we
arrived, it was still raining and
water was standing all over the
football field, knee deep. Actually!
We couldn't play, but nothing
would do us but to come back the
next week in order to get a crack
at whipping mighty Shalimarl
They gave us the chance to just
cancel the game, but we wouldn't
hear of it. It was the last game of
the season and a victory by either
team wouldn't make any differ-
ence. That was in the days prior
to play-offs and state champion-
,We came back the next Fri-
day night and Shalimar forever-
more whipped our tail!
All of which goes to prove
' that you should never postpone a
football game because of a lame
excuse such as heavy rains,
threatening tornadoes, high
winds and all that goes along

Congress OK's Water Disbursements
Worked by Tri-State Watershed of Chattahoochee Flint Apalachicola
Special to The Star-
Tuesday the U.S. House of
Representatives passed House
Joint Resolution 91, the Apalachi-
River Basin Compact, a bill which
grants congressional approval to
the tri-state compact addressing
water usage along the ACF Basin.
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) and his Alabama
and 'Georgia colleagues have been
negotiating with federal entities
over the resolution since May.
Water allocation in the basin
became a' hot topic during the
droughts of the 1980's when the
Basin area experienced water
shortages which increased the
demand for clean drinking water
and agricultural and industrial
Since the Chattahoochee and
Flint Rivers serve as the
Apalachicola River's main water
sources, North Florida was the
hardest hit by the shortages. The
Apalachicola Bay has also suf-
fered as the reduced amount of
fresh water flowing in from the
river raised the bay's salinity lev-
els, threatening the area's oyster
beds and other aquatic life.
These water shortages soon
led to disputes and litigation
between North Florida, Alabama,
Georgia, and the federally owned
and operated flood control pro-
jects in the area over upstream
water allocation. In response to'
these disputes, the three states
developed the Apalachicola-
Chattahoochee-Flint River basin
Compact, which each 'state has
already passed into law.
The compact establishes a
commission, with representatives
of the three states and the federal
government, to develop water
allocation formulas. Commission-
ers are charged with agreeing on a
formula by the end of 1998 with
the goal of apportioning the
waters equitably between the
three states while protecting
water quality, ecology and biodi-
versity in the basin.
H.J. Res. 91 grants congres-
sional approval to the compact;
which is required under the,
Constitution for the implementa-'
tion of any interstate agreement.
"I am pleased that I could'
facilitate the effort' to gain the
necessary federal government:
approval for the Tri-State River
Basin Compact," said Boyd.
"Alabama, Georgia and Florida
should all be commended for their
joint efforts to resolve this matter
through cooperation, not litiga-
tion. This legislation provides a
constructive framework for the
states to work together to find an
answer to our shared water usage
"The water shortages that
North Florida has experienced in
the last several years has made us
painfully aware of how precious
our water resources are. In our
effort to protect our natural
resources, we should continue to
work with, not against, our neigh-
bprs to develop positive solutions
like the Tri-State Compact," he

tions. Ike Mincy led Wewa's

ries and Chris Sims had five yards

Gannon Tells Rotary Sharks Have Played
Hard This Season, Despite Number & Losses
Athletic director and head
football coach, Chuck Gannon
spoke to the Rotary Club last
Thursday, at its regular luncheon
Naturally, Gannon discussed
the Sharks' football accomplish-
ments thus far this season. "I
thought we would be better than
4-4 at this point in the season,"
Gannon said. 'We have the prob-
lem all other schools have; there
are many boys who are large
enough and could help the team,
who. don't come out for football.
Consequently, we have a small
up-front line to maneuver behind,
who play their hearts out every
game, but they just happen to be
smaller than our opponents this
The speaker announced that
the Sharks made the play-offs
with their win last week against
Apalachicola. "These next two
games will be good games which
should test the mettle of our
squad," he said.
"Holmes County has had a
season about on par with ours
and Wewahitchka has been pretty
successful all season long. We
still have a great deal of incentive
to win the game if only to main-
tain bragging rights and posses-
sion of the Gulf County trophy,"
The coach wasn't too dis-
pleased with the season thus far.

George Malt, a traveling salesman
for Builders' Square of Pensacola.
Malt spied the dog, wander-

lover, Malt recognized the wan-
dering dog as someone's pet and
stopped to pick it up. ,
He brought the dog :to Port
St. Joe and went to the office of
veterinarian Tim Nelson for help
in locating his owner. The only
identification was a rabies shot

A telephone call revealed the
owner's name and home phone. A
call to the number revealed that
Stock was visiting in Wewahitch-

A call there located Stock,
worried because his pet was
missing. He was told the dog
would be left with the Port St. Joe
veterinarian where he could be
Mat, .who related this story
to The Star, .gave credit for the

and Malt advised him to give it to

I have been married for about
four years and it seems that during
the past six months or so. my wife
and I ,are growing apart. We don't"
jeem to spend as much time togeth-
er and When we do. we don't enjoy
it We don't argue or fight. We doi't
talk much at all. My, Wife and I have
our things we like to do and don't
have much in common anymore.
There is no romance and we don't
have sex as often as we used to.
When we do, it is usually boring,
unemotional and unsatisfying.
Sometimes I think that we no longer
love each other and our marriage is
over. I don't know what to do. Will
marriage counseling help if there is
no love? Should we begin thinking,
of divorce? Please help.
You and your wife are experi-
encing a very common phase that
many marriages go through. It
seems as if "the honeymoon is over"
in your marriage and you have both
become very comfortable with each
other to the point of indifference.
You are right to be concerned but it
does not mean your marriage is
over. In fact, it has just begun This
is one of those times when your
vows and commitments will pay off
for you and an opportunity to really
strengthen your marriage.
: First, you must understand
that "love" is a %erb as well as a
noun. In other words? Love is some-
thing that you do as well as; an. enio-
tion that just sort of happens. The
feeling will come and go in any rela-'
tionship but the act of loving is,
under your control. Second, you
I must recommit to your- marriage,
and forget the notion of divorce. You
are married for life and for "better or
worse." Once you realize this, you
can do some things that can rekin-
dle the flame in your marriage.
Make a commitment that you
will spend more time together.
Schedule a short period of time
daily and plan to get away from your
daily routines together. You don't
have to plan an activity or go some-
place expensive. On the contrary.
you should spend time just commu-
: nicaUng with each other with as few
distractions as possible. Since-love
is something that you doa- express
your love for your spouse even if you
don't feel like it. Send her flowers,
cook 'her favorite meall' do her
chores for her, or bring her coffee in
the morning. The little things you do
for her can go a long way. Don'tjust
do these things on special occasions
,such as birthdays or anniversaries.
She may perceive this as an obliga-
tion. When you express your love at
times when you do&'i have to, you
do it for only one reason; love. Show
physical and verbal affection for her
when you do not feel affectionate.
Hug, kiss, hold her hand, and/or
tell her you love her from time to
time. This doesn't take much time,
but the effect can be life-changing.
Yes, marriage counseling can
help If both of you are truly commit-
ted to your. relationship. Marriage
counseling is available at the Gulf
County Guidance Clinic or through
private practitioners in the area.
Feel free to call us at 227-1145
should you be interested in counsel-
ing at the clinic or are in need of a
referral to a private therapist.
Your marriage is the most
Important earthly relationship you
have. You'would do well to protect
'it, nurture it, and help it grow. Let
us know if we can help.

transports to each location. She
performs in a costume similar to
that which Mozart wore and mod-

MEDITATIONS OF A
(InntrT I er
By LOWELL F. ADAMS
S '- I Corinthians 6:19
r SOMETIMES WE DO THINGS that seem to us to be
righCWe are most vulnerable as teens. Most of our friends are
doing it, and we want to be in the mainstream of the activity.
As a teenager I took up cigarette smoking. Not expensive,
only ten cents a package. It was simply the thing to do, for most
of my friends were into it and I wanted to be "one of the group."
It soon became second nature, as the addiction took hold on me.
However, as I grew older trying to live "right" I began to realize
that smoking was not a good habit, especially for a Christian.
But I was "hooked" and all the hundreds of times I tried to quit
were miserable failures.
Like Samuel Clemens once said, "To quit smoking was the
easiest thing I ever did. I've done it a thousand times"
When I began to feel God's call to the ministry I really
began to try and quit smoking. I knew a minister should have no
bad habits, but I just could not quit. The addiction had me
imprisoned. I had been pastoring about two years when I
decided God would have to help me if I were ever to be free of
the habit,. The Scripture in Luke Chapter 11 kept telling me
whatever we ask for in faith we will receive.
So I started praying earnestly that God would take it from
me. I prayed for a long while, but nothing happened. I began
wondering if that Scripture was true, but I kept praying about it.
Then one Sunday evening, as we were returning home
from the evening service, I reached for my cigarettes and the
pack was empty. I threw it out, and told my wife, "With the
Lord's help I will do without cigarettes during the next week!"
Wonder of wonders, I have never wanted another cigarette
since that time. Praise the Lord, He was just waiting for me to
lay them down, MIv'any people at the church noticed I wasn't
smoking any more, and one lady told me that was the only thing
she had disliked about me.
That was over thirty years ago. I had been having serious
headaches al most every day. I have not had :one headache since
that time. People today are searching for ways to rid themselves
of the addiction, and all the time the "cure" is right there. Trust
God! He is able and He wants to help with all our problems!

In Romans 8:37 we

Oliver F. Taylor who loved us."
Visitation Minister, First The scripture in' this
United Methodist Churchapter describes a mul-
tituide of things which could possibly separate
us from the love of Christ. This positive asser-
tion says that Christians cannot be separated
from the love of Christ.
Too often the church is timid in asserting the
gospel. We need to be more than conquerors
when we witness for Christ. The church is ;in a
battle with forces who deny Christ, and proclaim
the church as a dying institution. Someone has
said that if the churches have no conversions in
a generation it will die. Christians need to stand

church needs to proclaim the victory. Yes, we

and it was truly a success. 'It

noon, but the kids still had fun,

Please continue to remind
your students that they must try

GPA now required of students. A
large percentage of failing grades

BY LISA CURRY
Luckily, Halloween fell on a
Friday this year. For the most
part, teachers were able to avoid
the rowdiness and "sugar highs"
that are consequences of full
moons and too much candy. Yet
they were not allowed to totally
avoid the fun of Halloween.
The SGA-sponsored Hallo-
ween dance got both students and
teachers involved in the spirit of
spooky tradition. Everyone was
encouraged to 'dress up for:,
school, something that many peo-
ple enjoyed. A ,costume contest
was held,and prizes were given to
the first 'and second place' win-
ners. Jdsh C carter won first prize
dressed as a cellular phone.
Randi Boddye's witch disguise
won second place.

IN THE "EYE OF THE
For this week's "Eye", we
interviewed Cathy Colbert, our
fifth grade teacher here at
Highland View. This is her 24th
year of teaching.
Mrs. Colbert has been' niar-
ried to Mr. Kesley for 24 good
years. Mr. Kesley is the property
appraiser for Gulf County. He also
writes "Hunker Down" for The
Star. They have two sons (Joshua,
22, and Jesse, 19) who are now
attending Belmont University in
Mrs. Colbert also had this to
say about herself
"I have two. foreign exchange
student sons, Hagen, 17, from
Germany, and JOzsef, 16, is from
I am a history buff, especially
a fan of the American Revolution
and the Civil War. I participate in
Civil War reenactments and travel
each summer with the Freedom
Foundation of Valley 'Forge to
study American History. I am cur-
rently reading Cold Mountain by
Charles Frazier. .
I used to tell people that I
wanted to be the first woman doc-
tor to do a successful heart trans-
plant. I wanted to do this until I
was in the fifth grade and then I
decided how special a teacher
was, so I changed my mind and
became a teacher."
She said she loves what she
*does and doesn't believe there is
any job more rewarding than

Today we want to share with
our readers seven communication
habits of highly effective parents.
We hope that they will be a help to
1. Highly effective parents.
model good speech habits for
their children. Adult-child inter-
action is 50 to 100 times greater at
home than in a classroom setting,
Faith Christian School
so your children will learn more
about communication in the home
than in any school. Attend speech-
es, invite people to visit in your
home, and make an effort to inter-
act with many people in many dif-
2. Highly effective parent
model listening. Studies show
that 40 to 60 percent of our com-
munication is through listening.
Model "active listening" for your
child by treating what he says as
important, smile,' nod and ask
questions. Studies of well-adjusted
children list parental listening
ability as a key positive.
3. Highly effective parents
concentrate on family meal-
time. In one study of children that
scored high on an academic test,
researchers found that their fami-
'lies were more likely to share
meals together in which children
actively participated in the conver-
sation. In your home, redouble
your efforts to have meals together
and ask each family member to
come with a topic to discuss.
4. Highly ;effective parents
plan family games and travel.
Families that play games, travel
and share events develop better
relationships and experience acad-
emic benefits such as a larger
vocabulary. Observation game,
stories on tape and storytelling will
make the time pass quickly and
help stave off boredom.
5. Highly effective parents
read out loud to their chil-
dren. When your child listens to
you read, he picks up the subtle
cues of vocal enthusiasm, imagi-
nation, vocabulary and a love of
learning. Hundreds of academic
studies show that reading aloud
increases vocabulary, leads to bet-
ter thinking and imagination, and
develops a lifelong love of learning.
6. Highly effective parents
emphasize being observant.
Great speakers learn to use their
experiences to reach the heart of
one audience. Simple activities
such as "name three objects in
this room that are orange" will get
your child to notice the world
around. In public, make a game of
observing the way people act and
are dressed or what they might be
7. Highly effective parents
spark curiosity. Curiosity moti-
vates children to learn. Tie com-
munication activities into things
your child loves: a particular Bible
story, a book about a great
Christian, a mystery story, or a
certain subject in school.
