For Merger
Transaction Scheduled
To Be Complete
In January, 1998
The Alpine Group. Inc.
(NYSE: AGI) announced that it
has signed a letter of intent for
the acquisition of the refractories
business of American Premier,
Inc. American Premier's refracto-
ries business will be merged with
Alpine's Refraco, Inc. refractories
operations in North America.
The purchase price of approx-
imately $133 million; consisting
of cash, the assumption of debt
and a 15% equity interest in Re-
fraco, Inc. American Premier,
Inc.-based in King of Prussia,
Pennsylvania; is expected to have
revenues from refractories opera-
tions of approximately $200 mil-
lion for calendar 1997. The Pre-
mier Services Corporation's Port
St. Joe plant is part of American
, Premier Refractories.
The transaction is expected
to be completed in January,
1998, and is subject to' comple-
tion of documentation, due dili-
gence and other customary condi-
tions. At the completion of the
transaction, American Premier
will split off and transfer its
American Minerals division to
Minerals Trading, Inc., a share-
holder of American Premier and
subsidiary of ,B Minerals, Inc.,
which is owned by IMETAL S.A.
The Alpine Group, Inc., head-
quartered in New York, is a hold-
ing company with operation in
two principal businesses. Alpine's
refractories business, conducted
through Refraco, Inc., is a global
manufacturer and supplier of re-
fractory products and services to
steel makers, aluminum, cement,
glass making and other Indus-
tries around the world.
Superior TeleCom, Inc.
(NYSE: SUT), Alpine's 50.1%
owned subsidiary, is the leading
manufacturer and supplier of tel-
ecommunications copper wire
and cable products to telephone
companies in North America. Su-
perior also develops and manu-
factures voice and data multiplex-
ers and other electronics and
signal processing components

broached the idea during the
board's meeting two weeks ago,
saying the fees could be used to
offset tourist-related expenses.
placing them on visitors ,to the
area, rather than ad valorem
taxes footing the bills.
He said the fees would be
assessed on transient accommo-
dations (hotels. motels, apart-
ments, cottages, rental units, etc.)
and paid by visitors in the form of
a bed tax added to the cost of
their accommodations.
County attorney Tim
McFarland outlined the process to
the board. He explained that all
funds generated must be used for
tourist-related projects under the
watch care of the Florida
Department of Revenue. Other
than the above stipulaUtion, use of
the funds can be applied in a
pretty broad spectrum, he said.
Board chairman Warren
Yeager asked how much money
the fee could generate for tourist;
development, if voters approved
it.
Chief Administrator Don
Butler said Department of
Revenue estimates range from
$12.000 to $19,000 per 1% of tax
charged. He also noted 2% was
the maximum level the county
could begin the bed tax at. with
the option to increase the per-
centages (up to a maximuin of
4%) after the first year.
Knox stated the tax was in
wide use throughout the state,
including recent passage by
Mexico Beach of a 3% fee by a 332
to 84 vote margin.
McFarland said before the
board could go forward with the
idea, a committee would have to,
be appointed by them at least 60
days prior to consideration of an
ordinance, then a Tourist
Development Council and Tourist
Development Plan would have to
be put into place. According to
bed tax guidelines, all of this
would have to take place before
the referendum could be consid-
ered.
Commissioner Nathan Peters
was the only board member to
voice any objection to the idea.
No Waiver to Hunt From
Sauls Creek Road
Chief Administrator Don
Butler, in answering a question
from the board's. 'ast meeting,
said no Waiver had been issued
from the Florida Game and
Freshwater Fish Commission to
hunt from the "right of way" of the
Sauls Creek Road.
Gulf County had requested
the waiver on behalf of several
Gulf County dog hunters who reg-
ularly use the road during the
hunting season.
Butler reported Florida Game
and Freshwater Fish Commission
representatives said they did
receive the request, but regula-
tions require property owners to
also agree to waivers being given.
In this case, one of the property
owners didn't consent, so no
exemption was given by GFC.
Beach Mouse
Chairman Yeager reported to
the board he had contacted
Federal Fish and Wildlife officials
requesting a public hearing
regarding preservation of the St.
Andrew Beach Mouse on St.
Joseph Peninsula.
Federal Fish and Wildlife
recently issued an alert that the
mouse has become an endan-
gered species and the cape area is
one of the few places they can still
be found.
Commissioners are con-
cerned about the detrimental
effects "protection" of the mouse
could have on development,
beach driving and other property
and beach usage hri the area.
Yeager said he requested a
representative attend a board
meeting and discuss the issue

west of Hue, Vietnam. ,
While advancing through
the woods a distinctive "click"
was heard, the sound of a trip
wire activating a booby trap. In
the instant that followed, some-
one shouted a warning to the
men as he threw himself on the
charge. He was killed instantly
' by the blast.
Squad members pressed on

110 Citizens Respond to GCCC Invitation


Bob McSpadden, President, Gulf Coast
Community College, talks of future.


Approximately 110 concerned
citizens met with representatives
from the Gulf Coast Community
College to voice their needs arid
ideas for the Gulf/Franklinr
; Center at the town meeting
Tuesday night. President of
GCCC, Bob McSpadden, opened
the meeting by discussing the
visions of the future center and
the possibility of already expand-
ing in the area of vocational tech-
nology. Dr. Virginia York, who led
the group work, excitedly stated,
"The quality of students coming
from Gulf and Franklin positively
enhance our school." She recog-
nized past students in the crowd,
as well.,
York facilitated the, three
areas of community input; prepa-
ration for a job/career, communi-
ty needs of the facility, and how to
gain a better life by linking the
educational program to the com-
munity needs and resources.
Each topic area was given 20 min-
utes of group discussion with a
GCCC representative acting as
the. recorder of the discussions.
Also, letters to the President were
written. Community surveys were
distributed and will be later
available to community members
that could not attend the meeting.


Dr. Virginia York tells of joining commu-
nity efforts with college program.


Many hot issues were dis-
cussed at Tuesday night's school
board meeting. During public dis-
cussion, parents discussed their
concern over the expenditure on
state baseball rings; the possibili-
ty of having volunteers or sheriff
auxiliary officers ride on the
school buses to assist with disci-
plinary problems; tabled request
to assist with funding part of the
bus transportation expense for
the Challenge class which will be
going to France in December;
motioned and approved matching


last year's funding of the Music
Education Program at
Wewahitchka Elementary
school; and the evaluation
process, state guidelines and ulti-
mate determination of principal-
ships was battled in cross-fire
discussion.
Several programs were
approved by the board; the
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Professional Development
Program, Break the Mold (a read-
ing remediation program) and the
E.N.A.B.L. (Education Now and


Babies Later) curriculum was
approved for implementation to
fifth grade students. The
E.N.A.B.L. program teaches stu-
dents abstinence, to overcome
peer pressure by making individ-
ual decisions, and the use of
refusal skills also for other topics
such as alcohol and tobacco.
The Middle School Task Force
recommended that effective
beginning the '98-'99 school year
that all sixth grade students from
Port St. Joe and Highland View
Elementary School be relocated


to the Port St. Joe Middle School.
This recommendation was
approved by the school board.
Due to the organization of the
Sunshine State Standards which
address curriculum goals at one
of the grade levels 6-8, this
change will make. it easier to meet
all the goals.

There will be an organization-
al board meeting encompassing
the election of a new chair and
vice-chair position on Tuesday,
November 18th at 9:00 a.m.

'Progress!

PROGRESS HAS BEEN reported as having been made in the
on-going feud between Alabama, Georgia and Florida about who
gets how much of the tri-tivers' water production. This has been
a raging controversy over the past 10-15 years, with Georgia
claiming the lion's share, mainly to furnish the city of Atlanta
with a dependable supply of drinking water, solely from the wa-
ters of the Chattahoochee River, which run through that city.
Georgia lays claim to a bulk of the Chattahoochee's water be-
cause the river flows for practically the entire length of the state,
after originating in the north Georgia mountains.
FLORIDA, ON THE other hand, claims a large portion of the
water since the entire length of the Apalachicola River lies within
the borders of the Sunshine State. The Apalachicola River fur-
nishes nourishment for 10% of the nation's oysters and the city
of Apalachicola won't let you forget that fact! All of this makes
the waters of the Apalachicola extremely valuable to the state.
Alabama also claims a portion of the waters, since a number
of its smaller communities depend upon the Chattahoochee as a
potable water supply. The river is the dividing line between Geor-
gia and Alabama for a number of miles.
THE "WATER WAR" HAS been at the head of the list of im-
portant disagreements among the three states for a number of
years, now. It hasn't developed into a shooting war but many
harsh words have been exchanged over the water siphoned from
the system by Georgia and Alabama, especially during dry years.
A special organization has been established to deal with this
very, vexing problem. The city of Atlanta has wielded extreme
pressure for the right to use even more of the water than they
presently are, citing their large growth accompanied by their ex-
panding needs.
LAST TUESDAY, THE U. S. Congress agreed 'to let the tri-
state compact divide up the water on an equal use basis, allocat-
ing the water on an equal basis to each of the three states affect-
ed, for clean drinking water, agricultural and industrial water
users, with neither entity taking an unfair advantage of the oth-
er.
Congress has set itself up as sort of a referee to see that the
division is done fair and square, and that it is accomplished be-
fore the end of 1998; something which hasn't been accomplished
over 15 years of haggling.



Remembering Pioneers
TWO PIONEER FAMILY NAMES were officially designated to
the status of being remembered by future generations in two dif-
ferent actions, taken last week here in Port St. Joe. The city is
comparatively still young and these actions take giant steps to-
ward maturity and middle age for the city and its environs.
Maddox Park; named after one of the pioneer couples of the
city was one appropriate step to come about with the recent
completion of the park which carries their name. Maddox was
like everybody else who came to Port St. Joe-he came from
somewhere else: Apalachicola, to be specific. His wife came,,to
Port St. Joe to teach school during the early portion of the cen-
tury, from the Frink-Abe Springs vicinity.
The couple set up housekeeping here in the Oak Grove com-
munity [the location of old St. Joseph], later on moving to the lo-
cation of the new park, where they remained for most of their
long married life together.
The point is that we are remembering our pioneers with
something tangible.
THEN, THERE IS THE naming of Fifth Street [the boule-
vard] in memory of another pioneer who helped the struggling
village to emerge as a vibrant little city. Cecil G. Costin, Sr.,' had
his name placed on the map, furnishing Fifth Street with a no-
menclature to be repeated often in years to come,' which will for-
ever remind out people of the fact that he came first and made a
difference to the city.
Most old cities remember their pioneers by giving their
names to bridges, buildings, streets, schools, etc., and remem-
ber them in that manner.
Costin came here at the young age of 13, from Apalachicola,
also, although he lived there with his parents for only three
years. He was. very instrumental in the city's growth -and ad-
vancement.
We like seeing our city landmarks given pioneer names. It
says a lot for our stability, as well as pays tribute to very impor-
tant people-our forebears.

We moved into our house on
Garrison Avenue December 1,!-
1975. Ohn December 3rd this,
small, white,. hungry looking cat
showed up at the back porch.
I had a brand new twenty-
four thousand dollar mortgage, a
brand new son and a brand new
mother who was "still eating for
two". She allowed as how she
would slowly wean herself back to
her old eating habits (it's been so
slow in the ensuing twenty-three
years as to reach the point of

I couldn't afford another
mouth! I got down on my hands
and knees and stuck my face
right down in front of him (or her),
"Cat, how did you get here so
fast? We just moved in ourselves!
Go over to. the neighbors, that big
place right over there, ,they like
cats. You'll, .get nothing at this


house!"
"Cathy. don't feed that cart!
The cat wouldn't leave. It got
to be a ritual. Every morning I'd
peek out the back window. -He%.
honey. you're not gonna believe
this-that darn cat is still here!"
This went on for weeks .
the cat, with no visible means of
support, was not only growing but
appeared to actually be flourish-
ing on my back steps. Something
didn'tjive here. It was almost as if
the cat was on Infamil, with iron
added supplements.
"Cathy, are you sure you're
not slipping a scrap or two out
back .. "
I thought about turpentine
and tin cans but by now the cat
was as big as I was.
We left for a month the follow-
ing summer. All I could think
about driving home was, Finally!
That cat would be gone. No way
he-she could hang on for a month!
Well, you know how this is gonna

,o n e question.


FIRST, LET ME TELL you a
little tale about what happened to
me a few weeks ago and you will
better understand this particular
'happening'in, my life I'm about to
relate to you.
A few weeks ago, I stumbled
out the side door to my. home,
early in the morning, iti order to
retrieve the morning newspapers.
I was met at their door by.a half-
grown, yellow tabby cat. The cat
acted as 4f he knew me. You know
the drill, rubbing up against my.
pants leg, purring, trying to trip
me up, etc.
The cat followed me out to
the newspaper box and back to
the door. When the .door was
opened, the "two of us fought a
duel over whether or not "it" was
going to gain entrance to the
house.
After a day at work the cat
was still there; even more insis-
,tent upon getting into the house
and I was.even more insistent
that "it" wasn't going to.

THIS ACTION WENT on for
about two weeks, with Frenchie
relenting and setting out food. for
the cat.
Then, one night, we heard the
most ferocious cat fight you ever
heard, right outside our bedroom
window. Those cats, which were
involved, sounded as if they were
disagreeing with one another,
something fierce. ,
The next morning, as I
cracked the door open, intent on
slipping out and going for the
newspapers, I saw a blur of white
going over the fence which divides
our yard from Dr. Frank May's.

wander up, adopting us--a poten-r
tial,'eat factory'. One of the neigh-
borhood tom cats was intent on
seeing that his blood lines be per1-

IT'S BAD TO BE thinking the"
worst, but when it comes to cat;
intent on trying to maintain their
bloodlines and keep the species
alive, it's best to think the, worst
possible scenario .
You know, more cats! '


Well I immediately thought,
"More Cats!"
It was a very, valid thought,
because you know how cats have.
an inclination to multiply, and I
had been through that'little prob-
lem, before!
I had a cat once that pro-
duced one new litter, right after
the other. I found homes for these
little kittens, until, finally, I ran
out of friends. Cats will do that to
you, you know. Nobody can keep
enough friends to take care of the
production of one prolific cat.
Well, when I ran out of
friends who were cat lovers, the
kittens began to have kittens.
Then, I was in trouble, but I rec-
ognized, early-on that I was in
trouble, and began to take des-
.perate measures to. rectify my
problem, until I finally got out of
the cat business.

UNTIL THIS NEW threat
came along, I was sailing along,
cat and problem free.

But, I decided to discard my
role as Mr. Nice Guy, and nip this
little 'cat factory' .in the bud.
I picked up the telephone and
called Dr. Tim Nelson, but he
must have been up to his kiester
in cats because one of his assist-
ants answered my call.
] asked, '"How do you go
about making arrangements to
have a cat neutralized?"
'You mean, fix a cat where it
cannot make babies?" she asked.
'That's exactly what I mean,"
I replied.
She gave me both pre admit-
tance and, post admittance direc-
tions and said she would take
care of the rest.
Relief
It's a friendly vet who will
take .care of your threatened cat
problem with no bother to you.
So, I did as instructed and
brought the cat in and left it with
the vet Monday morning, only to
have the assistant ask the hard


question.
"What sex is the cat?" she
asked.
"I don't know, but I suspect
she is female because we refer to
'her' as 'she' when [she] is
brought up. in family conferences
as to what to do about [her]," I re-
plied.
'You just want us to play it
by ear and fix he/she where he/ !
she won't produce any more'
cats," she said.
'You got it right!" I blurted
out, as I shoved the cat across'
the counter. -

"OUR" CAT IS NOW an "it!"
After an overnight stay at the vet
hospital, that little problem is
taken care of. "Our" cat will no
longer produce kittens.

You see, "our" cat turned out
to be a tom cat! That 'cat fight' we
heard was actually a cat fight, af-

Jr. Service League Raises $800 for Library Books


The Junior Service League of
, Port St. Joe held their first cook-
ing demonstration on Saturday,
October 11th consisting of a mar-
velous feast and cooking demon-
stration prepared and demon-
strated by Master Chef Robin
Downs.
This event was planned as a
fund raising cooking exhibition
and luncheon to benefit the
"Accelerated Reading Program" at
Port St. Joe Elementary School.
The Junior Service League
Education Committee is proud to
announce that-this special event
raised $800 for the program. With
these profits, Mrs. Barrier
(school's librarian) can purchase
books' that are imperative to the
.success of this excellent reading
enrichment program.
However, a need for accelerat-
ed reading books still exists and
you can help! The Port St. Joe
Elementary School Library will
gladly accept donations made in
honor of a friend or loved one.

Gulf Getting $2 Million


Out of School Session

Rep. Jdmey Westbrook Says School

Construction Deal Will Help Gulf
,. Rep. Jamey* Westbrook (D-Bascom) said earlier this week that Gulf
County schools are eligible to receive nearly. $2 million in additional
money to build new, classrooms throughout the district.
.The funding comes at the end of a week-long special session to
address a so-called, crisis,, of overcrowded classrooms in Florida's
schools,. The: district can. access. the money immediately through a
series of direct.appropriations and grants. Revenues for Gulf County
come from a $2.2 billion package generated .without any new state
taxes.
"The most important thing is that this is a fair deal for all school
districts," said Westbrook, following his vote approving the measure.
"Durlng'the first'part of the session I became concerned that the dis-
tributioni formula would not be fair to our eight county district. It
looked as though some would not' benefit at all, since we are not a
high-growth area; however, the final plan has a formula that treats all
counties the same." "
Funds approved after Friday's vote will be distributed among
school- districts according to a formula that divides money between
high-growth counties and ;those with older schools. Under this plan,
Gulf County can receive $1,760,600'in construction money.
Titled the "Classrooms First" plan, the money;will comeni from bond-
ing $180 million worth of lottery proceeds over a 30 year period.,
Another provision of this sweeping appropriation deals with small
county schools. The plan provides for $50 million to counties with pop-
ulations of 75,000 or less-which Gulf schools qualify for..
"Leading up to this special session most of my school superinten-
dents told me that they needed extra money for repair, renovation and
remodeling of existing facilities." said West-brook. "I was able to con-
vince the leadership that this would be an important aspect of the bill
and worked diligently to keep it part of the package."
Westbrook said he supported another component of.the bill which,
he believes, will prevent a similar crisis in the' future. Lawmakers
approved a local accouintabili.i whereby districtswill have to complete
a five year plan to meet future needs based on growth projections. The
plan will have to have local public support.
"I am a fierce supporter of local control," said-Westbrook. "For the
most part, I don't think the state should get involved in local issues;
however, not all counties are as penny-wise as those in District 7., This
was,something I was unable to prevent."
Students were not the only winners in this new law.. According to
Westbrook, every classroom teacher will receive a $250 grant to pur-
chase any materials, supplies or other items that will enhance learn-
ing. -. .
"I know personally that until today. teachers were having to pay for
these materials out of their pockets and they should be commended for
this personal sacrifice to their students," said Westbrook. "While it's
not the badly needed pay raise teachers have: been asking for, it will
put money back in their bank accounts."
Most superintendents and school board.members worked closely
with Westbrook before and during this special session. While they
encouraged the representative to avoid implementing new taxes, they
also asked him to insure the funding source would not come from
existing educational programs.
Since lawmakers took the money from lottirv earnings the state
will 'replace 'the money appripnatoid for mainteAance needs with a
' newly found $2(3 million surplus of state ta' money.
"I told the leadership that I would not cast a vote that would put
an added burden on the taxpayers," said Westbrook.

Everything.
In Its Place
by Jim Newton
This is the first of a series of
monthly articles on environmen-
tal issues that we all face.
Why are certain waste dispos-
al practices okay at home but pro-
hibited at work? You can blame
EPA and Congress. Congress
wrote the laws and told EPA to
implement them. However,
Congress said they did not want
to interfere'in the personal lives of
Americans.
As a result, EPA developed
' strict hazardous waste regula-
tions that apply at work but not at
home. Some of the wastes that
can be disposed at home but
must be properly handled at work
include used batteries. used light
bulbs, waste paint and empty
aerosol cans. EPA considers these
hazardous wastes at work, but
does not require the same care at
home.
As good environmental citi-
zens, we all should be as cautious
at home as we are at work. We
should not throw wastes Into the
garbage that are considered haz-
ardous by EPA. Instead, we
should save them until the coun-
ty holds an "Amnesty Day" and
then turn them in at the proper
location.
Such a day occurs in Gulf
County this Saturday, November
15. From 9:00 a.m. until 3:00
p.m., we can turn in household
hazardous wastes at the Gulf
County Courthouse parking lot.
By doing so, we will ensure that
they are properly disposed of.
If you have any environmen-
tal questions that I can answer,
write to me in care of this news-
d paper.. .

Collecting

Signatures
The Gulf County Classroom
Teachers Association is part of a
broad-based coalition working to
put a constitutional amendment
on the 1998 ballot to reclaim
education's share of state fund-
ing.
This proposed amendment
sets a fixed percentage of, the
state budget for public education.
It sets that percentage at what it
was ten years ago before the.,lot-
tery switch. Ten years ago, the
legislature was able to balance
the state budget with a 40% share
for public education.
If this amendment had been
in place last school year, Gulf
County would have received an
additional $1 million for last year -
alone.
Over 600 registered voters in'
Gulf County have already signed
petitions.
GCCTA will be collecting peti-
tion signatures on November 14
at the Port St. Joe/Wewahitchka
football game. If you have already
signed a petition, please do not
sign another one as it will be
rejected by the Supervisor of
Election's office. If, however, you
* are a registered voter and have.
not yet signed a 'petitioni please
do so at the game:.
Joe Walker,1Jr., president of
the.:GCCTA, stated, "Our chil-
dren's education is too important
a decision to be left to the politi-,
clans. It's time for the voters to,
speak up."

Question: Would you advise using insulated entrance
doors on the house I am building in Calhoun

Answer: Insulated doors are a good investment. They
are certainly practical, very expensive look-
ing and easy to finish.
Question: What is the advantage of using steel framing
in the house I plan to build in 1998?
,Answer The-'Tafters, joitts ahd studs come in precut
lengths. It would bd very difficult to match
the strength of steel, and there is no warp-

wood. However, it is very important that

Gulf's KofC Spelling
Champ Wins District
In last week's issue of The
Star, Knights. of Columbus
Council 11572 congratulated all,
the young men and women in the
county school system for, their
acceptance of a challenge to enter
their first annual spelling bee
competition. The competition,
ended with two Wewahitchka
youths advancing to district level
competition in Panama City on
Sunday, November 9th. ,
Those attending Sunday's
competition witnessed a real nail
biting drama to the end. Council
11572 members were especially
proud when Caleb Cutchin took
second place in the seventh and
eighth grade class division and
David Ortiz took first place in the ,
ninth and tenth grade level. What
a way for the Gulf County youths
to shine
Caleb will be an alternate if
his class winner cannot partici-
pate in the regional competition to
be held in December; and David
will surely try to clinch the next
level to advance toward state.
Knights of Columbus wish to,
thank everyone for their efforts
toward making the local competi-
tion possible and hope you will
join them in cheering our champi-
ons onward to future successes.

Dear Counselor:
My wife has recently been dis-
charged from a 4 day stay at a
psychiatric unit. The psychiatrist
told us that she has a "borderline
personality disorder". What does .
this mean? What can we do to ,
help her?
Signed, Worried Husband
Dear Worried Husband,
You did not mention the :
events leading up to your wife,
being placed in the psychiatric
unit. Often some kind of major life
trauma has been the catalyst for
this. The stress of this kind of
Experience can be overwhelming
and can severely overtax a per-
-son's ability to cope with daily life.
For a person with a borderline
personality, disorder diagnosis,
this life trauma usually has had.
something to do with a family
member with whom they are very
strongly emotionally attached.
Often, this will be a difficult
divorce or the death of a close rel-
ative such as a mother or a grow-
ing child.
Borderline personality disor-
der is a diagnosis that Is "on the
border" between a neurotic and
psychotic diagnosis. This means
that the symptoms seen are often
from both categories: 1.) neurotic,
cycles of anxiety arid fear and the
inability to manage them; and, 2.)
psychotic, thoughts or. feelings
that are not realistic or are
strongly out of proportion to the
events that occurred,
1 For this person, constant'
daily reassurance from a close rel-
ative can allow them to cope with
daily life. Although perceived by
others as capable and able to take
care of herself, this person sees
herself as totally incapable of even
making a simple decision or giving
minor emotional support to oth-
ers, even her own children.
She sees herself "on the edge"
always ready to fall into a dark
abyss of loneliness, rejection and
abandonment. Daily reassurance


does not diminish the fears, but
merely helps her to keep it under
control.
When a person with a border-,
line personality disorder loses a
loved one, their constant suspi-
cions of loss of love and abandon-
ment become real and overwhelm-
'ing. The person she depended on
to help her to hang on has sud-
denly gone and left her awash in a
sea alone.
Often the resources of other
family members become over-
whelmed by this person's need to
be loved and reassured. This can
,be expressed in impatience- but
will probably be interpreted as
4firther-rejection lThe -borderline"
is' further pushed over the edge
.and often will need hospitalization
and possibly medication to regain
enough control to return to their
normal daily activities.
Counseling is often strongly
suggested by the discharging psy-
chiatrist. Counseling can supply
the constant, daily reassurance
the patient needs. In order to
overcome the life trauma, she
needs to reform a strong emotion-
al bond with a relative or close
,friend.
When this is achieved and she
feels secure, the person can begin
to function as before. Therapy can
also help her to understand her
overpowering needs for reassur-
ance and the response of others to
her demands.
Sincerely,
Barbara Hoffman, M.A.
Counselor

.22 Rifle Matches
The Gulf Rifle Club will hold
two .22 rimfire rifle matches, a
BR-50 match and a smallbore
metallic silhouette match, on
Saturday morning, November
15th. Registration and set-up will
begin at 8:30 and the BR-50
match will start at 9:00.
This match consists of 50
shots fired within 30 minutes at
bullseye targets set at 50 yards
from the firing line. All shots are
fired from a bench rest with the
rifle supported on sand bags or an
adjustable rest.
The silhouette match will
begin after the completion of the
BR-50 match. This match con-
sists of 40 shots, fired in the
standing position, at four groups
of metal targets placed 40 to 100
yards from the shooting line. Ten
shots are fired at each group of
targets and the metal target must
be knocked off its stand to count
as a hit.
These matches are very chal-
lenging and a lot of fun to shoot.
All rifle shooters are invited to go
out and compete. Trophies will be
awarded in each match based on
the number of entries.
Last Saturday, the club held
its monthly hunter' pistol metallic
silhouette match and 22 RF bulls-

It is common knowledge
that sugar adversely affects
dental health. It is also a com-
mon misconception that only
white and brown refined sugar
(sucrose) is the only dentally
harmful sugar.
All types of sugars can
promote tooth decay. These
sugars include sucrose, fruc-
tose (fruit sugar), glucose, lac-
tose (milk sugar), and maltose
(grain sugar). As an example,
it is common to see infants
whose front teeth are severely
decayed as a result of prop-
ping nursing bottles of milk or
juice in their. mouths during
nap time. This is called nursing
bottle syndrome.

Sugar Danger


Eating foods that contain
sugars allows the bacteria in
plaque (a thin film of bacteria
that forms on everyone's
teeth), to produce acids that
attack teeth and cause tooth
decay.
It would be difficult to elim-
inate all foods containing
sugar from your diet. The trick
is to eat less retentive (or
sticky, candy-type) sugars less
frequently. Its adhesiveness
gives the bacteria too much
time to do its destructive work.

Fall Is The Time To Fish


For Stripers and Hybrid Bass


For some anglers autumn's
cool weather means it's time to'
store their gear until next spring.
For striper and hybrid fishermen,
this is one of the best times of the
year to fish.
Florida Game and Fresh Wa-
ter Fish Commission Fisheries Bi-
ologist Rick Long says both strip-
ers and hybrids (striped bass!/
white bass hybrids) tend to re-
duce their activity and feeding
during the warmer months but
move and feed voraciously as wa-
ter temperatures begin to drop.
He said catching fish now is a
matter of being In the right place
and using the right bait.
"There are fishermen already
catching both stripers and hy-
brids In the lower Apalachicola,
fishing on the bottom with live
shrimp," Long said. "They're also
catching fish near the sawgrass
and along the deeper banks by
using a float and shrimp fished
about two foot underneath."


He said everything feeds on
shrimp and anglers sometimes
catch largemouth bass and near
the coast, saltwater species such
as redfish and speckled trout.
Up river near the Jim Wood-
ruff Dam. Long said striper and
hybrid fishermen tend to fish on
the bottom with threadfln shad.
and small live eels when they can
get them. He said eels historically
are an excellent striped bass bait,
especially for big striped bass.
Long said hybrids and strip-
ers will often come to the surface
in huge "schools" during the cold -
er months in the Apalachicola
River between the dam and Inter-
state 10 and lots of fish can be
caught while they're on the sur-
face by throwing crocodile-type
spoons *or small spinner-type
lures such as the Little George.

48,


Bill Kennedy (Preble-Rish, Inc., Consulting
Engineers) revealed to Port St. Joe city com-
missioners during their last board meeting
(November 4) a development plan for the 28
acres of city property recently acquired from.
Amerada Hess Oil Company.
Commissioners have approved formal
application for approximately $2.5 million in
Department of Rural Development Agency low
interest loan funds for construction of the 150
slip marina at the edge of St. Joseph Bay on
the property.
The estimated $3.5 million dollar project
will occupy about 18 acres of the land when
completed. Grant funds totalling nearly
$900,000 have been approved to the city.
Construction plans call for bids to be sent
out December 1st with a finished construction
date slated for mid September 1998.
Kennedy's development preview (drawing at
left) extended a vision of what might happen to
the remaining 10 acres of property, not includ-
ed in the marina construction, when it is also,
developed.

pedestrian flow between the marina and down-
town Port St. Joe.
A hotel, restaurant, gift shops, store fronts
and office space are visioned dotting the prop-
erty. Brick pavers could be used to make walk-
way corridors crossing Highway 98 and Baltzell
Avenue to tie downtown Port St. Joe and the
marina business development together,
Kennedy said.
He also estimated the city could generate
approximately $1.5 million through the sale of
the property.
City Attorney Billy Joe Rish explained to
the board of commissioner there could be a
problem selling the property because of the
contractual agreement with Amerada Hess
Company when the property was acquired.
But. he added. other options were surely a
possibility, including long term lease agree-
ments, which would also generate revenue for.
the city.
Currently, city commissioners plan to lease
out the marina's operations for a sufficient
amount to repay the $2.5 million loan and
hopefully generate additional revenue over and
above those ex-penses.

Construction, Two
New Principals
S The Gulf County School
Board has two major items to
deal with, here In the middle of
the current school year, and Stu-
perintendent Jerry Kelley told the
Rotary Club last Thursday just
how they were going to go about
it.
The board is getting involved
in the renovation of the Port St.
Joe Elementary School building
and they are also going through
the procedure of hiring two new
principals; one for Wewahitchka
and one for Port St. Joe elemen-
tary schools. The current princi-
pal at both schools is retiring at
the end of the current calendar
year.
'You don't just go out and
hii a new principal," Kelley said.
"We have a stated procedure to go
through and we must follow that
procedure to the letter."
'There are several committees
which must be involved in the se-
lection of a new principal, both lo-
cal and out of the district," he
said. "A new, prospective princi-
pal must pass review and testing
by several committees before fl-
nally being approved by the
board."
The process of hiring has,al-
ready started. There have been 14
applications filed before the dead-
line of accepting them. Several
more came after the deadline had
passed, according to Kelley.
RENOVATED SCHOOL
The renovation of the elemen-
tary school is nearly down to the
'calling for bid' stage. "The archi-
tect is' coming up with an accept-
able plan now," Kelley said, "and
hopefully we will be calling for
bids by the end of this year. The
architect tells us that we will con-
ceivably be hiring a contractor by
February," he continued'.
SThe newly renovated school
will be about half new construc-
tion and half renovation. The
classrooms will be of modular de-
sign, but contained under one
roof. The modules will consist of
four self-contained individual
classrooms to the section. The
classrooms will each contain
1,000 square feet of space, and
have individual air conditioning,
electrical service, rest rooms,
teacher planning suites and stor-
age facilities.
'We're going to try to equip
every classroom like the best
schools in Florida are equipped,"
Kelley said. "Also, we're not going
to shut school down one day
while we are under construction,"
he continued.
"It's going to be a modem and
up-to-date facility equipped in a
modem and up-to-date manner,
when we are through," he said.

20th Year Reunion of Carter Team Your Help


Two From Port St. Joe in Attendance; Hendrix and Koran


The 20th year reunion of the
1976 Carter Presidential Cam-
paign was held in Atlanta, Geor-
gia on October 17th through
19th. Several people from Port St.
Joe attended, including Becky

Hendrix, and Bill Koran.
The highlights of the weekend
were the speeches given by for-
mer vice-president Walter Mon-
dale, currently an'ambassador to
Japan, and President Carter and
his wife Rosalyn. The President
and former First Lady spoke to
the guests about their continued
work concerning the eradication
of disease in third world coun-
tries and the promotion of human
rights, mental health and the res-
olution of conflict.
Included in the weekend's ac-
tivities was a tour of the Carter

Republicans Gather for Feed, Address


Economic
Development
Subject
The Republican party in Gulf
County is beginning'to act like a
serious contender in the political
arena and is doing it up right.
Tuesday evening a rally of the
faithful and the possibles met for
a free barbecue dinner and to lis-
ten to an address by former Re-
publican challenger to the Gulf
County School Superintendent
post, Loretta Costin who is now
working for the state of Florida in
its. division of workforce develop-
ment.
Costin spoke to about 60 peo-
ple in attendance in the Senior
Citizens' Center meeting room.
She spoke on building and train-
ing the work force as a key to eco-
oomic development.'
"Economic development ,is
something you have to work at
every day, without let-up.," she
said, going on to develop her.
statement with several points of
emphasis.
"Before 1992, the state of
Florida majored in the tourist in-
dustry, but since that year, for
several reasons,: -it has been
forced into diversification," Costin
stated. She said the state began
to fine tune its development ef-
forts by abolishing its Departr
ment of Commerce and replacing
it with a partnership of public
and private members aimed at
developing means of attracting a ,
broader economic base, "just like
Gulf County is now doing with its,
Economic Development Commit-
tee," she remarked.
This single system is charged
with developing better workers or
faces being abolished if it's not ef-
fective. ,
"Drastic times call for drastic
measures," she said. Attacks on
Florida's tourism business has
made it mandatory that it not put
all its development in one basket.
From placing a dependence on
low skill/wage. jobs to tourist
murders, the industry has lost
some of its luster.
'"To assist tourism as the
state's economic base, the state is
developing a method of meeting
the need for more skilled workers
through a network, of vocational
training centers," the speaker
said. "The successful area must
have quick response training,
whether it be on a high school,
community college or vo-tech lev-
el; must be able to forecast eco-
nomic trends accurately and be
successful in transforming exist-
Ing training programs to meet the
specific need.
'You must not be hesitant in
providing and demanding state'-
of-the-art vocational training pro-
grams. A survey shows that 65%
of the jobs of the foreseeable fu-
ture will require vo-tech training
while only 20% require a college
or AA degree," she concluded.
Gulf County will have a state-of-
the-art vocational training outlet
with the opening of the new Gulf/
Franklin Center of Gulf Coast
Community College.'
The meeting was chaired by
Jacque Travis. Entertainment
was provided by Julia Six, vocal-
ist. .

MEDITATIONS OF A
(1vinxutry 3reacer

By LOWELL F. ADAMS

God Is Love! 1
Love, thyneighbor
as thself "Mark 12:31.


OMEONE has said, "A Christian is a mind through
whinh Jesus thinks; a heart through which Jesus loves; a voice
through which Jesus speaks; a hand through which Jesus helps."
In Mark 12:30 and,31 Jesus told an inquiring Scribe, to
love God was the greatest of all commandments. And he said
the second greatest commandment was to love our neighbors as
we love ourselves. According to I John 4;8 if we do not love
others, we don't even know God, for God is Love.
Sometimes. I wonder if those who are totally blind aren't
able to "see" more than those of us who have two good'eyes.
Helen Keller, who never saw the light of day, once commented:
"I have four things to. try and do in this life: "--To think
clearly without hurry or confusion. 2-To love God and trust
Him unhesitatingly. 3-To really love everybody sincerely.
And 4-To act in everythingg I do with the greatest esteem and
highest of motives."
Another italily blind lidy, a dear Christian friend, lives her
faith in God daily. Mrs. Mary Inez Mauldin wanted to be a
school teacher from earliest age. In spite of the loving advice of
family and friends, she steadfastly clung to her hope, even
though there were no known blind public school teachers to her
,, knowledge. She got her educational degree and began trying to
convince the'Florida State educational system that she was able,
to teach sighted children. Eventually she was allowed to
demonstrate bher capability, and the end result was that she
became the first blind public school, teacher in the State of
Florida, and possibly the entire nation. She recently retired from
the Bay County Public School System with thirty years of
outstanding service. Marynez, as she is known by her friends,
loves God -and her "neighbor."
Aswe travel through this brief earthly existence, God does
not judge our worth by what we have, but by our attitude
concerning Him and, those around us., William Wordsworth
once said, "The best qualities of a good person's life consists of
the little nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love,
whih,they render to those around them.",
"Go, and do thou likewise." Luke 10:37

Shark Talk
By: Julia Six


This week the Port St. Joe
sports teams are working diligent-
ly to advance to higher competi-
tions' by winning on the local and
district levels.
On ThIursday, November 13,
Coach Gowan's cross country
boys' and girls' teams will host the
District One Cross Country
Championships. The meet will be
held at St. Joseph's Bay Country
Club at 4:00 p.m. You are encour-
aged to show support for, our
"Purple Pack" as they compete to
qualify for the state meet.
This Friday night the "Mighty
Sharks" will clash with the
Wewahitchka Gators in an effort
to resolve the "age-old" rivalry of
who's "best" in football for anoth-
er year. It is of particular interest
because the district title is at
stake.
The game will be held at
Wewahitchka's field at 8:00, east-
ern time. When asked for a word
to the fans, Coach Gannon said,
"Tell them the team needs every-
one to come to Friday night's
game. The fans really make a dif-
ference." /
The POPS Club is continuing
to gather canned goods for needy


families. This activity will end this
week, so it is important to make
donations now. First and second
prizes will be awarded for most
cans collected.
"Senior Class Favorites" were
elected last week, and are as fol-
lows:
* Most Athletic-Emily Thomp-
son and Tyson Pittman;
* Most Spirited-Amanda
Bateman and Gage Stallings;
* Best Dressed-Leigh Lawrence
and Kyle Adkison;
* Most Likely to Succeed-
Jennifer Gaddis and Jarred
Patterson;
* Mr. and Mrs. Port St. Joe
High-Leigh Lawrence and Kyle
Adkison;
* Most Humorous-Kim Lam-
berson, Tina Ross and Lee
Cathey;
* Friendliest-Leigh Lawrence
and Gage Stallings; and,
* Best Smile-Kim Lamberson
and Darius Chambers.
That's all for this week's
news. Quint Klingbeil will write
the article for next week. Until
then, have a great week!

Death: The Cost Tobacco Has



on Smokers and Non-Smokers


The American Cancer Society
is educating the public about the
cost of tobacco on society during
the "Great American Smokeout".
The cost is best measured by,
the number of people who die or
suffer illness because of the use of
tobacco. One in five Americans
die each year from tobacco use.
Annually, 53,000 non-smoking
adults die as a result of breathing
the smoke of others' cigarettes.
The total annual American death
toll from tobacco-related causes is
estimated at 419,000.
For more than two decades,
the. American Cancer Society has
continued its campaign to reduce
the number of cancer deaths in
this country due to smoking. Its
"Great American Smokeout" is
launched every year on the third
Thursday in November.
This year's campaign com-
mences on the "Great American
Smokeout" day, November 20, but
continues with educational and
awareness efforts through the
new year.
"Our goal for the Great
American Smokeout has evolved
from just helping adults quit
smoking to helping children and
teenagers understand that they
should never start smoking in the
first place," said Daniel Weingrad,
M.D.,. F.A.C.S., president of the
board for' the American Cancer'

"The Great American
Smokeout is also a time for
Americans to renew their commit-
ment to a smoke-free
environment for themselves and
for their children," added Dr.
Weingrad. '
Tobacco use also drains the
U.S. economy of more than $100
billion in health care costs and
lost productivity. Health care
expenditures caused directly by
smoking totaled $50 billion in
1993, according to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
Forty three percent of these costs
were paid by government funds,
including Medicaid and Medicare.
Even though smokers die
younger than the average
American, over the course of their
lives current and former smokers
generate an estimated $501 bil-
lion in excess health care costs.
Tobacco costs Niedicare more
than $15 billion per year.

and, Youth Access to Tobacco.
This year, the State of Florida
won their law suit against the
tobacco industry. The settlement
aims to recover billions of taxpay-
er dollars in Medicaid payments
for heath problems attributed to
tobacco-related illness; protecting
children from falling victim to the
tobacco industry's marketing
campaigns, and; telling the truth
about the dangers of tobacco.
Lost economic productivity
caused by smoking cost the U.S.
economy $47.2 billion in 1990,
according to the Office of
Technology Assessment. Adjusted
for inflation, the total economic
cost of smoking is more than
$100 billion per year.
This does not Include costs
associated with diseases caused
by secondhand smoke, burn care
resulting from cigarette smoking-

Historic Educational Summits Address Future of Education


School superintendents and
district staff from Calhoun,
Franklin, Gulf, and Liberty coun-
ties recently gathered at the W.T.
Neal Civic Center in Blountstown
for a major strategy summit
designed to focus on the most
urgent and important educational
needs facing school districts.
"Never before have the people
from the grassroots levels who are
directly responsible for the quali-
ty and direction of our education-
al systems joined together to for-
mulate such a comprehensive
plan which addresses their
needs," said veteran educator
Hilda Cox, following the three
summits.
"For that reason alone, these
meetings were historic in nature.
The groups focused for full days
on teaching and learning with
major results. The far reaching
positive impact the summits will


have on the students in this
region is tremendous," added
Cox.
The summits were a collabo-
rative effort between PAEC, area
school superintendents, and the
Florida Department of Education,
School Improvement Section. Cox
served as facilitator at all three
sessions.
As a direct result of the sum-
mits, educators discussed and
prioritized many aspects of the
state educational system and its
plan for the future. However, they
agreed on three major areas of
focus: to find alternative ways to
reach students whose needs are
not being met, to determine and
implement more intense methods
of elevating student achievement
on test scores, and to determine
and address what training teach-
ers and other educators need to
utilize new technology and strate-


gles.
Giving keynote addresses
were superintendents Jimmie
Suggs of Calhoun County, Brenda
Galloway of Franklin County, and
Jerry Kelley of Gulf County.
Liberty County Superintendent
Jack "Hal" Summers, Jr., sent a,
designee to represent that dis-
trict. Eight other counties served.
by PAEC were also involved in the
summits at different locales
throughout the Panhandle.
The purpose of the three days '
of meetings was to enable educa-';
tors to join-with consortium staff .
in developing strategies designed
to enhance the educational,
opportunities for students in this
region.
Reaching and exceeding the
goals set forth in Florida's plan for
students, Sunshine State
Standards, was the major topic of
the Interactive meetings.


"Florida's School Improve-
ment Initiative is bringing about
challenging changes in the way
districts conduct business," Paula
L. Waller, PAEC Executive
Director said in announcing the
summits.
"A creative solution for meet-
ing these challenges is needed,"
Waller added. "The superinten-
dents who serve as the leaders of
PAEC and make up its board of
directors, have expressed their
desire to immediately identify the
best strategies in meeting this ini-
tiative and providing for prompt
implementation. The summits will
provide our road map as we move
toward the year 2000 with a uni-
fied goal of providing the very best
education for all students in this
region."
To discuss issues and the use
Sof new technology, facilitator Cox
divided the attendees into groups.


Members of each group partici-
pated in discussions based on
identifying critical instructional
needs which were later shared to


establish common elements. The
groups were then reformed to
reach agreement on top educa-
tional priorities.

Why Does Your Lawn


Turn Brown In Winter?


Have you ever wondered why
the grass on golf courses remains
green during the winter months
while most home lawns are
brown? It's' not that grasses
grown on golf courses are more
cold tolerant or that golf course
personnel spray the grasses with
a chemical that prevents them
from turning brown. They simply
plant a cold tolerant grass onto
the permanent grass. The prac-
tice called overseedingg" involves
spreading seed of a cold season
grass over the permanent grass.
If you're tired of looking at a
brown lawn every winter and
don't mind mowing, fertilizing
and watering through the winter,
you may wish to overseed your
lawn this winter.
Several cool season grasses
that can be used for overseeding
include ryegrass, bluegrass, bent-
grass and tall fescue. However,
because of its rapid seed germi-
nation, fast growth, adaptability
and reasonable low cost, ryegrass
is the best choice for home lawns.
Ryegrass should be planted
when the permanent grass is ap-
proaching or has reached its dor-
mant period. Seeding time varies
from October to November in
North Florida to late November
and December in South' Florida.
South Florida is usually so warm
that permanent lawngrasses
don't go dormant. However, they
may discolor enough to justify the
use of ryegrass for winter color.
To prepare a lawn for over-
seeding, mow the permanent
grass very close and rake to re-


move as much debris as possible.
Close mowing will help to remove
some of the spongy debris
(thatch). If the lawn has excessive
thatch, dethatching with a verti-
cal mower or power rake would
be desirable. A heavily thatched
lawn tends to result in irregular
overseeding patches.-
The next step is to broadcast
ten pounds of ryegrass seed per
1,000 square feet of surface area
with a fertilizer spreader and rake
lightly to ensure that the seed
gets through the grass and in
contact with the soil. For best
coverage apply half the seed in
one direction and the rest at a
right angle to the first applica-
tion.
Watering is the last, but most
important step in establishing a
winter lawn. Water should be ap-
plied lightly and carefully to the
'seeded lawn once or twice a day
until the seeds have germinated
and the seedlings are well estab-
lished. Reduce waterings to an
as-needed basis after the second
mowing.
Once the winter lawn is es-
tablished, it will require the same
maintenance as a permanent
lawn. This includes mowing, wa-
tering, fertilizing, and controlling
pests. Begin mowing when the
grass is about two inches tall.
The first application of fertilizer
should be made after the second
mowing and additional applica-
tions should be made on a
monthly basis thereafter. Apply
fertilizer at one half the rate you
would normally use on your per-
