First Water Shipment Since 1984
Shipment of Paper
for Foreign Export
After several years of Inactivi-
ty, the docks bordering Florida
Coast Paper Company, L.L.C. will
once again moor a ship, loading
for export of paper product.
According to Dave Maddox's
log book (former harbor pilot for
44 years), not since September
1984, when, M/S Alea loaded
paper products headed for West
Africa, has a freighter loaded
paper for export at the docks.
Sometime during the day
Friday, November 28, the 623
1/3' long freighter "Pine Arrow"
should pull up to the docks
breaking that 13 year stretch.
Joyce Baxley, Production
Control Supervisor of Florida
Coast Paper Company, said steve-
dores are scheduled to spend
Friday afternoon and Saturday
morning loading 1,900 tons (813
rolls) of linerboard onto the vessel
for export to Italy.
The linerboard will be
processed into cardboard boxes
'upon its arrival. She said the
loading .process is, expected to
take eight to 10 hours to com-
Harbor Master Billy Howell
said the vessel will be flying a
Bahamian flag when it moors at
the docks Friday. It will draw 22
feet of water as It makes its way
' through the natural deep water
channel of St. Joseph Bay. after
SIts four day trip from Brunswick, -
Georgia, where it was last docked.
In a recent article on Florida
Coast Paper Company, Ferrel
Allen, General Manager, told The
Star that production of light-
weight linerboard for export was
one emphasis the mill would be
pursuing in an effort to diversify
their product production.
At the time, he said, "If all
goes according to plans, we
should have a boat at the docks
within a few months."
The M/S "Alea" takes on a cargo of 1984. It was the last paper traffic across the
paper, bound for West Africa in September local docks.
Allen also said reactivating
the local port is a top priority of

of which are currently out in the
marketplace for trial.
Bleached lightweight paper
stock for the production of white
paper bags and bleached paper to

have been produced by the mill.
"We would like to recognize
our employees for their efforts to

Gulf Governments Possibly
Could Get $1,211,777 Less
In Revenues Than Expected
Florida Coast Paper Company, L.L.C. filed papers in the
Gulf County Clerk's office Thursday, November 20 against
Kesley Colbert, Gulf County Property Appraiser, and the
Department of Revenue of the State of Florida.
The suit revolves around a dispute, earlier documented,
between Florida Coast Paper Company and Gulf County's
Property Appraiser over the assessment of the mill's tangible
Florida Coast carried the matter to the Gulf County Value
Adjustment Board in September protesting the proposed
assessment. The review board upheld the property appraiser's
assessment of $196,152,170.
A "good faith payment" of $2,674,445.80 was made by the
mill to Gulf County Tax Collector Eda Ruth Taylor on
Thursday also. This payment was based on an assessment of
$134,989,245 in personal property value, the appraised'
amount the mill had petitioned for in their reduction request.
Assessment Same As Last Year
Colbert's assessment of $196,152, 170 for 1997 personal
property was the same amount assessed and paid by St. Joe
Paper Company in 1996, before the mill's name and ownership
The assessment dispute has raised the concern of Gulf
County's taxing authorities who stand to lose $1,211,777 in
ad valorem tax revenues if Florida Coast is successful in
obtaining the reduction of $61,162,925 in personal property
S Gu.lf. County would lose nearly $450,000 in tax revenues:
the Gulf County School Board, approximately $490,000; the
City of Port St. Joe, $320,000; and the Water Management
District, a little over $3.000.
A history of past personal property returns of St. Joe Paper
Company from 1993 through 1996 reflect a gradual increase
in assessments during the four year period.
In 1993, the mill was assessed just over $172 million;
nearly $182 million in 1994; approximately $184 1/2 million
in 1995; then, $196,152,170 in 1996-the same as the
current 1997 assessment by Gulf County's Property Appraiser.
Beginning November 28th, a mail box, with connections direct to
Santa at the North Pole, will be set up in the vacant lot adjacent to
Port St. Joe's City Hall for kids to mail their wishful letters in.
Those letters will be sent to Santa who will personally answer all
correspondence which contains a self-addressed stamped envelope.
The letters will then be forwarded to The Star for printing in our

Somebody, you don't even know who, could end your life before

material things were cheap. but you didn't even have the price of
a cheap loaf of bread! Here in America, prices are high, accord-
ing to some standards, but they're not unreasonably so. At least
we can still purchase food and shelter. They are not unobtaina-
ble, such as in so many places in the world: India. for instance.
OR SUPPOSE YOU didn't have good health, your family had
deserted you, or your nation didn't officially believe in God'?
You'd really have cause not to be thankful if you suffered from
any or all of these.
We live in a nation which gives all sufficient reasons to be
thankful. And, really, we believe we all know it. too!
So today, whether your Thanksgiving dinner consists of a
can of pork and beans or the full traditional Thanksgiving feast.
let us all pause for a few moments to offer thanks to God for
what we have.
Remember, we are the only nation which celebrates a special
day, remembering God's blessings to us. and we're the only na-

enough to offer our thanks.

for extinction, has been in the forefront for a while, now. Shades

the lowly mouse is a harbinger of the health of the sand dunes,

It doesn't matter that millions of us pay big dollars to get our

Pest control services get rich ridding us of this pest. Millions of
women are frightened by a lowly mouse. Our earth's remaining
elephant population is scared out of its wits at merely the sight
of this small rodent.
And we're going to declare it an endangered species?
WE CAN'T IMAGINE the environmentalists being very suc- I"
cessful with this campaign. We can almost hear a collective sigh
of "Good riddance!" at the first cry of Its pending extinction.
We imagine the environmentalists would get more positive
support if they were to throw all of their energies-Including that

ETA OIN SHRDLU
j By Wesley Ramsey -
A COUPLE OF years, we
went to Pigeon Forge and to Dol-.
lywood. That was probably one of
the most entertaining trips we
have taken. Dollywood had sever-
al shows to offer, and craftsmen
stationed throughout the park,
plying their trade and demon-
strating how things were done in
the old days.
Dollywood was very entertain-
ing, and a relaxing place to visit.
Of course, the crowds were
running over one another in Pi-
geon Forge. We had to eat supper
one Thanksgiving day at Wendy's.
It was the only place we could get
Pigeon Forge is a beautiful
place around Thanksgiving but

AND, OF COURSE, the nu

It's something to see an eight mile
stretch of the drive through the.
gardens decorated with millions :

Callaway Gardens is strictly a
family entertainment center.
Everything is very low-key and
nothing is risque or featuring ac-
tivities you wouldn't want your
children or your wife to be in-
Pigeon Forge, Dillard, and
Helen, Georgia, are also family
oriented entertainment; but not
to the degree which Callaway
Gardens seems to be.
WE WON'T BE seeing Calla-
way's lights, Pigeon Forge's Dolly-
wood with its musical shows and
active craftsmen, or the Biltmore
House, nor Ramsey's Apple
House this year. We were going
and were making plans on what
we would visit this year, when the
entire family came down with ail-
ments just serious enough to
keep us home.
Frenchie had to have some
dental work done, I wasn't feeling
too well and worst of all Smudgie
was under the. weather.
,,I told you a couple of weeks
ago about having a stray cat op-
erated on-he's still sticking
around the house, by the way;
even after we had him made into
an "it", rather than leave him a
healthy, roving tom cat.
Well, after that episode, we
decided to have Smudgie taken
care of, too. We had her undergo
a 'hysterectomy', rather than a
common spaying procedure, last
Monday and she has been recov-
ering ever since.
'Smudgie, unlike the cat,
didn't go into that procedure
without putting up an objection.
She' fought all the way. She
worked on our sympathies for all
it was worth. She took advantage
of her recovery period, and, at
this writing, is still "recovering".
WHEN SMUDGIE is ailing,
everybody is ailing She sees to
that. She gets carried in and out
of the house; she gets helped up
arid down from her favorite place
on her favorite couch; she gets
special food, and she gets helped
in and out of our bed at night.
She plays that 'invalid' card
to its fullest.
Smudgie almost beats us out
of the house when we start to go
somewhere, so if she knew we
were postponing a trip on her ac-
count, she would probably be

The large dais of the sanctu-
ary, radiant in flickering candle-
light from a profusion of ivy-
entwined heart candelabra and
tree candelabrum, featured a
brass archway, resplendently
woven with tulle and ivy as the
focal point for the ceremony.
Flanked by immense ferns,
large pedestals draped in tulle
held impressive floral arrange-
ments in teal, rose, and white, the,
bride's chosen colors, for visual
interest on each side of the dais.
Tulle and wedding bows adorned
the length of the altar rail, and,
trails of ivy enhanced the window
Classic prenuptial music was
presented by Jennifer Taylor,
pianist, and Janice Cox, organist.
Soloist Alford Ramsey sang the
couple's favorite song "Me and
You," and Mark Jones added his
rendition of "The Lord's Prayer"
and "The Parents' Prayer" during
the ceremony, which was initiated
by the lighting of the unity candle
by the couple's parents.
Leading the wedding party as
they began their descent before
the bride were Emily's friends,
Dana Earley, maid of honor, and
Kiki Fields, Kim Nobles, and
LeAnn Tolliver, bridesmaids.
They wore matching floor-
length teal dresses, featuring
scoop necklines and cap sleeves..
Originating at the shoulders and
draping gracefully to the waist-
line, their organza trains then
flowed gently below white satin
rosettes. Long, white gloves com-
plemented their attire. They car-
ried floral nosegays in rose and
white with ivy and teal ribbon
Robert and his best man, Jeff
Wood, and groomsmen Mike
Gainey, Wes Mercer, and Matt
Cabaniss were dashingly attired
in classic, black tuxedos. Other
attendants were Walter and
Ronnie Hunley, Matt and Wes
Mercer, and Little John Baker.
Strewing rose petals from a
bouquet from the groom to the
bride, flower girls Kayleigh and
Ashleigh Lewis, Caltlyn Baker,
and Lauren Moore prepared the

guests were entertained at a
reception at the church's Family.
Life Center. As guests entered,
they enjoyed a large bridal por- '
trait of Emily.
The fairy tale theme of Emily
and Robert's courtship was car-
ried out in the decor of the recep-
tion area, with chenrbs embellish-
ing the tables. The white wedding
cake, distinguished by a rose
motif, was a display centered
around a fountain and flanked by,
sets of double-tiered cakes, unit-
ed by staircases ascending to the'
bride and groom cake top.
The food tables were laden
with a large assortment of dell-
cious hors d'oeuvres, fruits,
seafood, and sweets prepared by,
the bride's family.
Punch was served by Trina
Thursby and Tina Whitfield from
a handsome heirloom, crystal
punch bowl, lovingly provided for
the occasion by Elaine Jackson.
Likewise, Dana Maige cut the
cake using an heirloom cake knife
from the bride's family.
Special guests at the wedding
were the family's close friends,
Lavern and Pat Allen, from
In traditional fairy tale style,
the groom whisked away his bride
in a large, horse-drawn carriage,
bedecked in lights and bows, as
they left the church for a week's
honeymoon cruise to the Keys
and Cozumel, Mexico.
They now reside at Mexico
Beach. The groom is employed by

You may not know it, but
there's a silent enbmy at work
in your mouth-periodontal
disease. This disease affects
nine out of ten Americans dur-
ing their lifetime. It works slow-
ly and steadily in; your gums,
attacking the soft tissue and
the bone supporting your teeth.
Unlike decay-causing bac-
teria, it doesn't attack the teeth
directly. It works from the
"underground'' of the mouth
and may not be noticed for
years, until it becomes a seri-
In its early stages it causes
the gums to become red. They
may swell and bleed easily. As
the bacteria continue to multi-
ply, the underlying layers
become hardened or mineral-
ized. This deposit is called cal-
culus or tartar.
In time, the gums slowly
separate from the teeth, form-
ing pockets for more bacteria
to thrive in. Then they attack
the bone structure that sup-
ports the teeth, loosening the
teeth. By then it may be too late.

He said other species such as
channel catfish, bluegill, shell-

have not been significantly
impacted by flatheads.
Dobbins said the GFC has a
flathead study underway on the

My teenage daughter worries
me sometimes. She tends to have
tantrums when she doesn't get
her way and sometimes she
threatens to kill herself.
One time, she got angry
because I would not let her go out
with a particular boy and took
four or five Tylenol in my pres-
ence. At first, she said she was
trying to kill herself. When I told
her I was taking her to a psychia-
trist, she admitted that she was
trying to scare me into letting her'
I have always been taught to
ignore my children's tantrums
and attempts to get attention, but
I am afraid to ignore this kind of
behavior. What do I do?
You are absolutely right. You
should not ignore suicidal threats
or gestures, even if they are
attempts to get attention or other-
wise manipulate you. This does
not mean you have to give in to
her demands but understand that
if you don't, she may "up the ante"
and try something more desper-
ate. You must take precautions
for such a possibility, especially in
light of your daughter's previous

natural Gas & Safety
Natural gas supplies vitally needed energy
to thousands of homes, businesses and indus-
tries in Florida. Energy, whether it be in the form
of gas, electricity, oil, water, etc., when uncon-
trolled can be dangerous.
Even though a record of safe operations has
been established over the years by the regulat-
ed gas, industry, knowledge of the information
contained in this ad can assist you in recogniz-I
ing a potentially hazardous condition and take
appropriate action to safeguard life and property.
Q. What Are Some of the Characteris-
tics of Natural Gas A User Should
A. Natural gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons
composed mainly of methane and exhibits
1.. Odorless an odor is added to this gas.
2. It is lighter than air and if released will
rise into the atmosphere unless trapped.
3. It is nontoxic, However, as with 'any burn-
ing process, incomplete combustion will
form carbon monoxide which is toxic.
4. It is colorless.
5. It has a flammability range of from 4% to
14% (approximate values by volume of
gas to air).
Q. Is Natural Gas Dangerous?
A. Gas, like all forms of energy, is capable of
doing damage and must be used properly.
However, the experience with natural gas
use shows it to be more safe than other en-
ergy sources which you use in your home or
Q. What Should You Know About Gas
A. 1. Natural gas doesn't normally have an
2. A substance is added by your gas com-
pany to give natural gas a "rotten-egg"
smell should it escape.
3. Become familiar with the smell. Should
you detect this odor, it doesn't positively
tell you that there is a gas leak; but this is
sufficient reason for you to call your gas
company and have them investigate.
Q. What Additional Ways Can You
Detect A Gas Leak?
A. 1. When the ground is wet, you may detect
a leak by seeing bubbles rising through
puddles of water in a uniform manner.
2. A larger leak of gas from underground;
piping may be able to be seen by sand i
blowing around a small hole in the:
ground; it may be felt just as you may feel
air leaking from a small hole in a tire or
air hose; and if it is a large leak, a noise
can be heard similar to air leaking.
3. A flame at or around appliance piping
other than at the burner indicates leak-.
Q. The Fact That A "Rotten-Egg"
Odor Is Detected, Does Than Mean
That There Is A Natural Gas Leak?
A. No. But this should be checked to assure
that the odor isn't an indication of a gas leak.
Call your gas company and reportit. Odors
similar to that of natural gas may come from.
1. A sewer system.
2. A water aeration plant which has a sul-
3. Swamps.or bogs.
4. Areas where the land has been filled, etc.
Q. If There Is A Gas Leak, Will You
Always Smell An Odor?
A. No. If gas leaks from an above ground pipe,
there should, always be an odor. However,
such as a leak from an underground service
line or main, the ground acts as a filter and!
can remove the odor from the gas.
0. Why Isn't A Gas Odor Smelled
When the Gas Is Burned On A Gas
'Range or Furnace?
A. The material used to odorize the gas is flam-
mable and is consumed in the process of
burning. If your equipment is properly adjust-
ed you should not detect the odor when you
are using your appliances.
Q. What Can One Do to Reduce the
Possibility of An Accident?
A. First keep the emergency telephone number
of your gas company handy. A good place to
keep this number is to write it down in the
front of your telephone book along with other
emergency telephone numbers such as fire,
Other things which should be done to im-
prove safety as well as conserve energy are:
1. Teach children that they are not to play
with any appliances in the home.
2. Clean the burners and have them
checked for proper adjustment periodical-
3. Repairs, installations and removal of ap-
pliances are jobs for qualified persons.
Use only qualified people to do this work.
4. If lighting of an appliance is required, AL-
WAYS light match and hold at ignition
point of burner before you turn on the
5. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for
operation and care of gas appliances.
6. Never take a chance. If you think you
smell gas, call you gas company.
Q. What Should be Done When One
Believes He Smells Gas?
A. There are many possible conditions which
could be encountered, thus it isn't possible
to give specific instructions for every situa-
tion: The following examples provide general
instructions which should assist:
1. If a slight odor is detected in a localized
area or room of a building do not use a
match or other'flame in the area; call the
gas company immediately.
2. If a strong odor is detected in a building
or other confined space do not operate
electrical switches, light matches or use
an open flame; however, do open win-
dows and doors to ventilate the area
(caution: don't turn on exhaust fans)
leave the building and call the gas com-
3. If a strong odor is detected in a build-
Ing and/or a hissing sound is heard -
do not operate electrical switches, lights
or other devices; do evacuate the build-
ing leaving exit doors open orn your way
out, warn persons to stay clear of the
building and call the fire department and
gas company immediately from another
4. If the odor of gas is detected outside (in
the yard, at the sidewalk, etc.) -
immediately call the gas company.
SAFETY IS YOUR BUSINESS. EDUCATE
YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS ABOUT THE
PRECAUTIONS TO TAKE WHEN THEY BE-
LIEVE THEY SMELL THE ODOR OF GAS.
CAUTION: The term "Gas" is used by the
news media and others to include a variety of

MEDITATIONS OF A
By LOWELL F. ADAMS ^
There is a difference in
Knowing the Word of God
God of the Word ,
OME PEOPLE may know the Words of The Book and
notnow The Author of The Book.
Once when I was a teenager I made a bold statement about
something in the Bible to a neighbor. I soon discovered I had a
lot to learn. I quoted something (I thought) the Bible said about
a certain human activity. The neighbor I was talking to was, by
his expression, somewhat puzzled, In response to my bold and
boyish claim to knowledge, he asked: "Are you sure that is what
the Bible says?"
When I assured him I was certain, he went inside and
brought out a huge family Bible. "Show me that Scripture," he
suggested. I then had to admit that I didn't know where to find
it, so he opened that big old book, put his finger on a verse and
asked: "What doers that say?" It was almost the opposite of
what I had quoted. I was a Christian, arid knew the Author of
The Book, but I just didn't know His Word. However, we can
know His Word, and still not know God.
Many scientific minds know the Words of God, but
disregard His Truth, in favor of their own bizarre idea of how
this world and its inhabitants came intobeing. I Timothy 6:20
warns us science that opposes God's Truth is false science.
If we study The Word in an honest effort to know God, we
will, no doubt, soon begin to "feel" His presence. Romans 10:17
says "Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of
Accepting God's Word as Eternal Truth is essentially a
matter of faith. God does not "prove" Himself to unbelievers.
When I was a child and askel my father why I had to do so and
so, he would say, "Because I said so!" Truth needs no proof.
God informs us early in His Word (Genesis 1:27) He
created us in His own image and likeness, "breathing into our
nostrils the breath of life, and we became a living soul"
(Genesis 2:7). We are created in His image, to live forever.
Some may think when they die, that will be the end, But
the soul never dies. We will live eternally in one of only two
possible locations in heaven with God, or in hell with Satan.
The choice is ours. May we all choose eternity's best!
