Proposed Change



Has Caused City



Fathers Concern

$57,000 Per Year, Per Work Crew
Is Being Considered by D.O.C.


I.


Port St. Joe city commission-
ers breezed through their regular
meeting Tuesday evening, making
every effort to finish in time to
# leave for Blountstown to meet
with Department ofr Corrections
officials and Representative
Jamey Westbrook concerning'
prison work crew distribution and
cost to counties.
Port St. Joe currenilv gets
four to five workers per day under
the program, but would like to
have that number increased to 12
inmates per day.
The city would like to have:
the extra workers to operate their
composting facility as well as help
out other departments through-
out town.
One item of special concern to
the City of Port St. Joe,
Wewahitchka and Gulf County is
a proposal to charge $57,000 per
year per work crew to those tak-
ing advantage of the Department
of Corrections program.

Commerce Executive Director
Tamara Laine reviewed the City
FDOT Pathways for Health with
the board.-
Laie explained Port St. Joe
was in the DOT work program
and would receive the first phase
of the grant ($239,000) in two
years. Those funds will be ear-
marked for planning and .engi-
neering a series of walk and bike
paths throughout the community.
The second phase of the grant
program will be to secure grant
funds to obtain right-of-way for
the paths. Then, final construc-
tion funds would be obtained.
Lane said the project is "on
go' and4s included in DOTs work
program. It will probably be four
to five years before the paths are
' actually constructed.
In Other Business
eCommissioners decided to go
ahead With -application for
$133,000 in low interest loan
funds to assess the city's sewer
system for leakage and other
problems.
*Discussed paving roads in
Ward Ridge. The roads were
scheduled to be paved during the
county's recent project, but were
held up until water and sewer
work was complete. The county),
has committed to pave the roads.
but are out of paving funds at this
time. Commissioner Charles
Tharpe ,said, they have-agreedAo
grade the roads until paving
funds are available.
*Decided to look at applying
for recycle funds to help operate
the city's recycling efforts.
*Mayor Johnny Linton told
the board he had been in contact
with Eastern Federation and
asked them to conduct a feasibili-
ty study to see if the city could
support a movie theater.

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
Christmas issue.
This year's deadline for mailing Santa letters to receive a reply
from the jolly old gentleman will be 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, December
20th. Get busy writing kids!
Those wishing to write to Santa only for publication .without a
return letter from "him", are welcome to drop them by The Star Where
a special depository will be awaiting their arrival. The same deadline
will apply.

amount by $61 million. This
could permanently reduce the
school board's general fund by
$430,000 and the local cap
improvement fund by $60.000,
totaling a $490,000 devastation.
Sissy Worley. finance officer,
informed the board of the possible
loss of revenues and alternatives
such as borrowing from. other
funds, which would amount to
approximately $300.000 of the
$490,000. Guidelines dictate bor-
rowed money must be repaid to
the specified fund within 13
months. The state would assist if
the tax deficit funds were 10% or
more of the school board's rev-
enue and unfortunately Gulf
County's percentage Is at 9.4%,
only .6% below the level of assis-
tance.
More positive news included'
the naming of the two new ele-
mentary school principals,
Catherine Barfield for Port St. Joe
Elementary and Clayton Wooten
for Wewahitchka Elementary
School.. Both principals will
assume their new positions begin-
ning in January.
Also, the board tabled any
,decision until January's meeting
on implementing a girl's tennis
team which was suggested to
remedy the gender, equity prob-
lem. Last month at the special
meeting, Chris Earley, Port St.
Joe High principal approached
the board regarding the need to
balance the number of girl and
boy extracurricular participants
with at least 45% representation
of female athletes.The interest in
tennis was noted by survey data
accumulated by polling high
school girls. It was noted that if
appropriate balance is riot
achieved, possible state and fed-
eral funding could be jeopardized.

The Only Way L

AT LAST, THE MARINA controversy is over. It is now finally
decided to build the facility, even though that fact doesn't make
everybody happy; at least, at this point in time. Some don't un-
derstand the financial arrangement, thinking it is a potential
drain on city finances; a thought which is far removed from the
way things actually are. The city stands to be in no way respon-
sible for the bill to build the marina. There are perfectly good
and valid reasons why the facility is being financed in this man-
ner and why it could be financed by no other means, successful-
ly. A friei


First is the manner in which the property was made availa-
ble to the city and the restrictions placed on the manner the
property could be used. If the property wasn't used for this pur-,
pose, it would just sit vacant. The city couldn't sell it, or trade it,
or use, it for just anything we decided we might want to use it
for. A marina is one of the few things the property could be used
for, under the restrictions of the deed.
NEXT, ST. JOE Corporation has expressed a desire to lease
and operate the marina.
First, let us say, here and now, at least a half dozen respon-
sible firms and individuals have expressed a similar desire. But
each and every potential lease entity-including St. Joe Corpora-
tion--require that the marina be in place before they will con-
sider leasing.
The reason is that with the city building it, they will be ab-
solved of numerous expenditures in various, ways which involve
big bucks. These include a myriad of state and federal permits
which would cost a private developer plenty! The project calls for
some expensive construction practices if anyone besides the city
were to build it-plus more permits. The city is eligible for ex-
tremely low cost loans and outright gifts to finance the project
which are not available to the private sector; not even at a higher
interest cost than is now available to private corporations.
ALL OF THIS MAKES the project more attractive to poten-
tial lessors and makes the project even more desirable. If the pri-
vate sector were to build the project-provided the city could
even be allowed to part with the property-the construction
costs wquld be nearly twice as much and this would make it a
very undesirable business project.,
As it is,. we get a marina at absolutely no cost to the tax-
payers-now or in the future; we make the best feasible use of a
valuable piece of waterfront property,' and we meet a real need
as well as create an asset for our community.



Looks Like Christmas
THE CITY IS GEARING UP FOR Christmas; a little 'later
than the big cities, but early enough to get the job done. The
Christmas season gets a little earlier every year, with the giant
discount houses and the large merchandisers getting the season
underway just after Hallowe'en. We're looking for Macy's to alter
the date of their annual Christmas parade from its traditional
Thanksgiving date. That would move it away from the cold tem-
peratlures, and ,the, high .winds experienced this year. which
caused injuries to several people from a couple of errant bal-
loons.
Port St. Joe business houses are either decorated or getting
ready to decorate for the holidays in serious fashion now.- Al-
though you can't see many signs, at this writing, the city is get-
ting ready to put up its decorations and getting the town to look-
ing like it's Christmas!
THE SEASON IS FAST sneaking up on us. We were parked
in front of a local business Saturday and those inside; were fever-
ishly working to get decorated. Plans are being made for the an-
nual Christmas parade--both here and Wewahitchka-
indicating that Christmas can't be far behind.
CHRISTMAS IN A SMALL town is something special. It
seems more real than it does in a larger community where it ap-
pears as if the people are just concentrating on making the
year's profit from Christmas shoppers. We realize it takes a prof-
it for a business to be successful but somehow the act of striving
for profits sort of takes something away from the season. In a
small town the store clerks seem more in tune with helping you
to find just the right gift at a price you can afford, rather than
just saddling you with whatever carries the most profit.
By the time some of those large merchants go through a
Christmas selling season, they are so dog-tired they can't do a
Christmas morning Justice.
We know how its done, in the small towns!

Everybody Has Chipped In


I *k>
,


nd of mine landa off


handedly remarked that it. must
make me feel important knowing
so many people read my stories
each week ..... you talk about
being caught off guard.
I've never thought of it that
way. As' a matter of fact, I don't
think of myself as a writer at alll I
don't do this for a living. I backed
into the business a few years ago
'cause Wesley asked, me to fill up
a little space. That's,all I've been
doing ever since---just filling in on
.a temporary basis.
I told \Ves before I ever start-
ed there was a good chance here
that I could set journalism back a
hundred years. He read over my
first couple of efforts and allowed
as how it wasn't that bad-maybe
only fifty years ., .... .
And for all those readers my
:friend mentioned--the only per-
son that's guaranteed to be tun-.
ing in each week is my mother. I
tell you, you can't beat a mother's


love. They don't quit. they don't
give up. miles don't mean a thing.
time doesn't matter, grammatical
mistakes are over looked, they
don't edit ....... l.My little stones
are never too long for her. they're
never off-center, prudish, boring,
silly.
She says it's like getting a let-
ter from me each week. Let me tell
you, that one reader is important
enough for me to keep churning
out these little blurbs.
You see, LaRenda Bradfield,
Charlotte Melton, Bobby Brewer,
Buddy Wiggleton. Nicky Joe
Stafford, etc. are not just names
on a piece of newsprint to her.
She watched them grow up! And
she remembers most of the sto-
ries that I jot down from week to
week better than I do..' ,
She knows when I'm right on
'target-and when I might be
embellishing just a tad. She is the
one person who could, on rare
occasion, refute a couple of my
facts. Or question, my memory.
But, hey, we're talking a mother
here! My stories are safe!
And, bless her everloving
heart, she is one of those rare
birds who actually thinks that I
am Important!


She would never "suggest"
that I "wnte this" or "say that" .
but she will point out rather
quickly if I mention Leon more
than David Mark. and woe be
unto me if I do a story or two on
Josh without getting one in about
"her little Jesse". It's that built-in
sense of fair play. One of God's
greatest gift to mankind was
unquestionably the creation ,of
mothers.
I'll' tell you what the stories
have done for me persorially. They
have given me a chance to recall
* my childhood in much greater
detail than I ever thought possi-
ble. It's one thing to remember a
friend or a funny incident, but it
becomes so \i id. almost as if it is
being replayed. when you wrestle
it down on paper. I thank Wesley.
The Star and so many of you who
have given me the opportunity
and impetus to dig so deeply into
my memory.
I have shared my family: the
good. the bad. and the ugly. with
you-sometimes to their detri-
ment. and I suspect. even more
often, to yours. But regardless. it
has allowed me to relive some.
ummmh, interesting moments to
say the least! I would write more


about your children or your
brothers or your parents or your
childhood friends, but unfortu-
nately I don't know them as well
as I know my own.
I have been able at times to
bare my soul. Confession is said
to be good for what ails you.
I have also been allowed the
prihlege of intruding into your life
on occasion. For that, I am truly
grateful. I have borrowed from
' you. learned from you. been cor-
rected by you. shared many com-
mon expenences with you and
hopefully through it all we've
managed to find the laughter in
each situation. A smile here and
there has always been the simple
goal of my little "weakly" efforts.
All of this gets me back to the
beginning of this particular war-
ble today. No, I don't feel particu-
Slar important because I'm the one
who got picked to write it down.
Any dummy can do that. The
story is out there-with Mary E.
Pendleton. Greylene Lemons, Cliff
Sanborn. Charlie Lanford, Leon.
Nickey Joe ....... .and you!
Hey. I've known a few semi-
famous people who were bonaflde,

It Was A "Stay-at-Home" Thanksgiving Weekend


IT WAS A "Stay-at-home"
Thanksgiving for us and we still
got stuffed, along with the turkey
The holiday was a complete suc-
cess to Frenchie because she
didn't have to cook. We ate. out'
with the various kids; which is.
part of the reason for having
them live in town.
Frenchie did cook a turkey,
just so we could have some left-
overs to eat during the week. But
she didn't have to do any serious
'Thanksgiving-type" cooking..
The only thing I, lacked was a
piece of mincemeat pie. None of
the kids made a mincemeat pie'.
I don't know what they were
thinking of, leaving off an impor-
tant ingredient like that from
their menu.
If we had gone to Dillard, like
we originally intended to, I would
have had my piece. of mincemeat

Nevertheless, [I love that
word] it was an enjoyable

was ill-except from over-eating-
and everybody stayed dry during
the rainy Saturday we experi-
enced.

THE RAIN SATURDAY inter-
rupted Florida Coast Paper's
plans to load a boat with paper,
until the next day, causing us to
stay on .the alert for a full week
end in order to get photographs.
The rain interrupted several
plans for different people, includ-
ing our plans to put up and deco-
rate our Christmas tree, getting
that chore out of the way.
Friday, we took a little jaunt


up to Havana to look arounMd andi
found crowds you couldn't stir
with a stick. There doesn't seem,
to be anything in Havana except
gift and antique shops and Pat
Thomas' insurance office.
We looked around for 4
couple df hours and I think Fren-
chie spent $4.00. I didn't spend
anything; not even 50 for. a colc$
drink.
Havana didn't make enough
to pay the light bill for a day off
us"

WEDNESDAY, PRIOR tqo
Thanksgiving, we went out to


Gulf Sands to have supper with
Joyce Britt and, lo and behold,'
we ran into the late Dr. A. L.
Ward's daughter, Brenda. Brenda
formerly lived in .Colorado for
many years. She, now lives here,
at Overstreet, specifically
We spoke, and Brenda said
she read my mention of her late
father's Lincoln Zephyr in my col-
umn. Shootl Any column I hap-
pen to write about "cars I have
'known" would have included a
narrative: about that Lincoln
Zephyr coupe. I lusted after that
carl It was one of my favorites of
all time; especially to a teen-agert
with the 'car fever', big time!
It was solid, shiny black, with
white-wall tires and was the only
one like it in town. It was a sporty
car for a sporty doctor.
It was good to hear Brenda's
comments.

I MUST REPORT that I did
get our Christmas tree up, in


spite of the rainy Saturday. It's


spite of the rainy Saturday. It's
standing right there in our family
room.. sans decorations
We have one of those 'make-
believe' Christmas 'trees. You
know the kind, don't you?
We bought It last year after a
life-time of holding out for a real
honest-to-goodness Christmas
tree at our house. The Christmas
season kept getting earlier and
earlier, the tree merchants kept
getting 'trees, also, earlier and
earlier and the needles would
start falling around the first of
December, until they were nearly
naked by Christmas eve.
We gave up on them and
bought an artificial tree. Now, we
just pack it away in a box until
next Christmas.
The artificial tree is natural
looking, but it loses something in
the translation.
I got the tree out of its box
and joined the three sections to-
gether after considerable wres-
tling around.


For Us

WHICH BRINGS ME to ask
about this little bit of information:
Inside that Christmas tree box
were two trees! When I put the
tree away last year, only the one
would fit in the box. But when I
took it out this year, there was
the large tree and a little, two-
piece tree inside.
Now, even I know Christmas
trees don't breed! Especially don't
they breed when there is only one
in a box.
But, there was that second
tree, with leaves of the same tex-
ture as the 'parent' tree.
I don't know how these things
keep happening to me, but they
do! I don't remember us having a
little artificial tree last year. It
was enough of a break from tradi-
tion for me to get even one artifi-
cial tree, so I certainly wouldn't
buy twol
I can't explain it, but, some-
how, we now have two artificial
Christmas trees.

Wewa Considering Sewer Upgrade

The City Commission of We-,

tion of money-not enough of it to.
do what they want to do.
The city is dickering over the
two projects of generally over-
hauling their 12 lift stations.
which are a part of the sewage
collection system and the instal-
lation of sewer service to the resi-
: dents of Red Bull Island.
Ag At the present time, the lift

. affected property owners and nor-
mal county business, kept the
board busy throughout the
evening.
As. reported in last week's
issue of The Star, Florida Coast
. Paper Company has filed suit
against Gulf County Property
Appraiser Kesley Colbert and the
Florida Department of Revenue
seeking a reduction of
$61.162.925 in its personal prop-
erty assessment.
The mill's ownership made a
"good faith payment" of just over
$2.674 million to Gulf County Tax
Collector Eda Ruth Taylor based
0'on $134,989,245, what they feel
their personal property should be
.:assessed.
Colbert's assessment of
S196.152.170 for 1997 personal
property values was the same
amount he levied in 1996 and was
,paid by St. Joe Paper Company,
before the mill's 'name and owner-
ship were changed.
o,, What all that means to Gulf
County taxing authorities is a
possible loss of 81,211,777 per
year in tax revenues until the suit
is settled. At that time, depending
upon how the litigation comes
out. the loss would either become
permanent or Florida Coast Paper
Company would be ordered to pay
the amount assessed or possibly
somewhere in between. :
Gulf County stands to lose
nearly S450,000 in tax revenues;
the Gulf County School Board
*approximately 8490,000: City of
Port St. Joe 8320,000; and the
Water Management District a lit-
tle over S3,000.
Commission chairman War-
" ren Yeager warned the board that
it would be necessary to watch
spending closely, "We don't have
the fat in our budget to absorb
this kind of loss."
Gulf County Tax Collector
Eda Ruth Taylor and Property
Appraiser Kesley Colbert were
present during the workshop ses-
sion to answer any questions the
board had concerning the litiga-
tion and tax revenues.
Commissioners Nathan
Peters. Jr. and Billy Traylor
offered the board's support to
Colbert's efforts.
"Life's going to go on in Gulf
County. We might have to cut ser-
vices, but whatever we need to do,


we'll do to make it work," Traylor
said as he cautioned the board
not to panic.
"Hopefully, Santa Claus will
come early," Yeager told the board
members, in hopes for a quick
resolve of the suit.
St. Andrew Beach Mouse'
Gail Carmody (U. S. Fish and
Wildlife Service) addressed the
board during its regular meeting
time to answer questions and
comment on what affect a propos-
al to place the St. Andrew beach
mouse on the federal threatened
and endangered species list would
have to property owners and Gulf
County, if approved.
Carmody was present at the
request of board chairman
Warren Yeager. She presented an
overview of why the mouse was,
being considered for placement on
the list and gave some general
information about the little crit-
ter.,-
The beach mouse ranges
along a 54-mile stretch of coast-
line from Money Bayou in Gulf
County to Crooked Island in Bay.
County.
Its habitat has been dis-
turbed. in recent years, mostly
from; the effects of Hurricane
Opal, causing a decline in p0pula-
i ion. Carmbdy said efforts were
currently underway to reestablish
the mouse at Crooked Island
(using mice from St. Joseph State
Park) and plans were being made
to do the same on Eglin, Air Force,
Base property at Cape San Blas.
Chairman Yeager asked what
the impact would be to the coun-
ty and property owners' if the '
mouse is put on thelist. '-
Carmody resporided. "N6ot
much as long as the dunes are
not disturbed. There's no separate
permitting process as long as
building: or development doesn't
involve a 'take' of the mouse.",
St. Joseph State.-Park an^d
adjoining land along the peninsu-
la currently have the largest pop-
ulations of the species in its habi-
tat area, she said.
The board also issued
.concerns about the expense .of.
establishing a habitat conserva-
tion plan.
Carmody said if the mouse is
placed on the list, it would have
no impact on beach driving in the
area since it lives in the dunes,

answering a question posed by
Veterans Service Officer Bo
Williams relating to the impact on
beach driving.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
was not very understanding of the
U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service
plight. "Is that all you've got to
do?" he asked.
Traylor said he could under-
stand protecting the bald eagle,
sea turtles and some other
species, but, "I can't believe the
government is, going to pay money
to protect mice."
Carmody explained the con-
cern is that species reductions
might be a symptom of a more
serious problem within the dune
structures themselves.
Commissioners have request-
ed a public hearing on the pro-
posed listing. The wildlife service

.A Loving andHonorable
Tribute to Orvil'W. Herring
I don't have a gift for you, because you
seem to have everything. There is so much I
have to thank you for, but If I had to write it
down on paper, the paper company would
never shut down again, and the pens would
run out of ink.
Plus words can't even express all the
love, guidance, understanding and support I
have received in my lifetime from this spe-
cial man. So here's a poem that holds a
small part of love and gratitude, I hold so
deep in my heart!
So on behalf of all your family ..
loved ones .and friends, we all wish you
a very Happy Birthday, and many more to
come. ..
Th-l-" "'u for Being My DADDY!,
I Love You,
Your Daughter
YOLANDA HERRING
"THANK YOU DADDY"
Every little girl needs a hero, and mine
is my daddy. He is really special to me. He
would walk a step behind unselfishly, to let
my light shine through. And though he
might not have sunlight on his face, the
lovelight he gave me so unselfishly....shined
through me and reflected right back on him.
As a child I knew my daddy made sacri-
fices; to provide us a decent living...so work
took him far away from us. But if we need-
ed him he would be to us in less than a
day!
Thank you daddy, for being there for us
when we needed you. When we are sick .
.you are right there. As time has gone by I
can see your health is now failing you. And
now it's my turn to be that special hero, and
be right there for youl!
If you know my daddy, you know what
I'm saying is so true. He's a man who takes
his roles in life seriously and handles each
role with a velvet glove. He's a loving
son...a brother..uncle...a wonderful hus-
band...the very best father ...pap-paw and
friend you'll ever have or know, "YES" he's
my daddy and I love him so!!!
Thank'you daddy for all you've done
and given up for us through the years,
"That's My Job," I know you'll say. So
you're 60 years young as of'November
23rd. And our lives have been oh so
blessed by you, Daddy....Happy Birthday
and remember you're my hero and I love
you.
Your Loing Daughter

PAGE 6A THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, DEC. 4, 1997


Arrests from page 1
"Obviously the net ban is
working better than the crack
cocaine ban-that particular day
there was more demand for mul-
let than there was for crack,"
McKeithen commented.
Several other arrests are
pending as the investigation con-
tinues and officers seek out sus-
pects. In all; nearly 40 suspects
should be arrested when the oper-
ation is complete.
McKeithen said every case
that has been made during the'
round-up was for sale or delivery
of drugs. This investigation netted
the largest number of suspects
busted for sale or delivery of
drugs in Gulf County.
"Sometimes it may appear
we're not paying any attention to
drug activity, but we're not slack-
ing up," McKeithen said. "It takes
time to set up a drug operation
and follow all the leads to get to
the people putting drugs on the
':street." '
McKeithen issued a special
thanks to the Port St. Joe Police
Department for assisting with the
round-up and first appearance
procedures.
Most of the suspects arrested
,thus far had first appearance
::before Gulf County Judge Robert
Moore Tuesday morning.
Those arrested and charged
as of press time were:

Daddy, Please Come Home .


Dave Mankins, Rick Tenenoff,
and Mark Rich have been held
hostage In Colombia for almost
five years. The men are mission-
aries who were living and working
In avery small village in Panama.
On, January'31, 1993, armed
guerrillas 'entered the village,
raided the 'homes of these men
and their families and then left,
taking the men with them. It was
later learned that the guerrillas
were from% Colombia, ,and that
they had taken the men back
across the border into Colombia,
where they continue to be held
hostage nearly five years later.
Immediately following: the
kidnapping, the men's families
had to evacuate the village by ca-
noe, leaving their homes and pos-
sessions behind. Together. Rick,
Mark and Dave have seven chil-
dren who ranged from nine
,months to 23 years old, at the
time of the kidnapping.
:Now the youngest is five,' and
the oldest Is 28. The youngest
four children can no longer re-
member their daddies; the. oldest
two have married, something
their father was unable to share
inand does not know of.
During negotiations in 1993
and 1994, Colombian guerrillas
claimed to have the missionaries.
In June, the Colombian guerrilla
.group known a,.F.A.R.C. partici-
pated In mediai, ceremony at-
tended by representatives of' a
number of countries and human


rights organizations (including
the Carter Center in the United
States), where F.A.R.C. turned
over 70 Colombian soldiers and
marines it had captured during
its insurgency against the Colum-
blan government.
Recently. the same group has
reported to Latin American gov-
ernments that it' continues to
hold the three missionaries cap-
tive, and has confirmed that the
hostages are alive and' well. These
'admissions have' been made even
as F.A.R.C. is actively seeking in-
ternational recognition and pre-
senting its own rights and grie-
vances against .the Colombian
'government.
There was a summit meeting
in Venezuela November 7th
through 9th. The, Latin American
heads of state discussed .the is-
sue of human rights in .Latin
America. Each of the wives of the
hostages and all seven of their
children went to .this summit
seeking the assistance of these
assembled heads of state in gain-
ing freedom for the three hostag-
es.: ., .
The. wives and families of the
missionary hostages urgently
seek the assistance of the news
media (U.S. and international.
-secular and Christian) in report-
-ing; this incredible story of five
,years of captivity of their hus-,
bands and fathers.
T: They believe: that F.A.R.C. is
counting ohn these hostages being
Forgotten. Their 'wives and chil-
dren won't let that happen. They


ask'you 'to join them in remem-
bering the hostages.

house repair questions?

I am looking at a urethane balustrade sys-
tem for the house I am building. Would the
urethane give long term service?
You could look at urethane as an investment
because of the low maintenance it requires.
There would be no repairing, painting or
replacing for many years.

that brick are expensive. What could be used
with brick to keep the expense down, yet

Writers Group
Writer of the Month
Writing is Communicating
by Jim Newton
Communication is the art of
transferring ideas and informa-
tion from one person to others.
Earliest man communicated by
using hand signals and pictures.
Gradually, a language formed
that allowed spoken communica-
tion.
The earliest .Biblical tales
were passed down from one gen-
eration to another by word of
mouth. At some time in the later
centuries before Jesus Christ,
people began to write down the
stories and the Old Testament of
the Bible was created.
Untilthe time of the printing
press, all books were hand writ-
ten and available only for those
who had the money to study read-
ing. Now almost everyone can
read.
One 'of the most basic sub-
jects covered in school Is writing.
We're taught how to write letters,
essays, poetry, and stories. Most
of us either hate to do it or have a
fear of writing. It is very difficult
to understand this, since it is one
of the most basic forms of com-
munication.
An effective written document
can persuade the reader to believe
in a certain point of view, or it can
entertain arid let that person
become lost in, a world created by
the writer. Writing has been a
means of bringing about change
with 'what is wrong with the
world. It can enhance the status
of the reader and writer. Writing is
communicating.
How does one become a
writer? Some people are born to
write, others gradually find that
they are good at v.writing. Have you
.ever read a, book and said I can
write that? You could be a writer.
Have you ever had a strong desire
to transfer your ideas to others?
,You could be a writer.
A writer has a desire to high-
light the wrongs of the world or to
change some aspect of it. A writer
is often opinionated and desirous
of letting others know his/her -
opinion. A writer has information
or can obtain information that is
needed or desired.
I first experienced the desire
to write as a sophomore in high
school. I was offered the option to
write a book report or a short
story. I submitted a 25 page short
story called "Escapades at,
Summer Camp." I was hooked.
If you are such a person,
there is a group for you here in
Port St. Joe. The St. Joe Bay
Writers Group meets at 6:30 p.m.
on the third Tuesday of every
month in the meeting room of the
Gulf County Library. We are
always looking for new members.
We will be sponsoring a writing
contest among the local schools
in early 1998. Come help us.


The Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission (GFC)
estimates 130,000 licensed
Florida hunters will take to the.
'woods this season to hunt for
everything from antlered white-
tailed deer to bobwhite quail.
With so many people tramp-
ing through the woods with guns,
the GFC's Law Enforcement
Division would like to remind
hunters to remember safety first.
One hunting accident is one too
many.
\ "Hunting is one of the safest
sports a person can participate
in," said Capt. Ed Tyer, the GFC's
hunter education supervisor.
"Part of the hunter's pledge is to
hunt 'safely. One way to learn
about safety is through the
hunter education course. The
course has helped reduce hunting
accidents. There were fewer acci-
dents last year than the year
before."
Hunter education require-
ments currently allow children
under the age of 16 to hunt under
the supervision of an adult with-
out having completed the hunter'
education course. Persons born
on or after June 1. 1975 cannot
'purchase a hunting license with.
out proof of successful completion
of a hunter education course.
Tyer said there are several
safety measures that are the
responsibility of every hunter. RHe
said -focusing on your target.
knowing where your hunting,
partners are. and properly secur-
ing a tree stand are all extremely
important. .
Focusing on: a. target enables
the hunter to make sure, his tar-
get is legal game and not another
hunter or nongame animal.
"Hunters should try not to get
too excited," Tver said. "Over-
excitement can" ruin a hunter's
concentration and lead to an acci-
dent. For example, people run-
ning dogs may get caught up in
the thrill of the chase and lose
focus on their target." .,
WAVhen hunters go out in. a

party, each member needs to be
aware of where the others are
hunting. That 'is important for
accident prevention and also for
search parties in case a hunter
gets lost. Hunters going out alone
should tell someone of their loca-
tion and how long they will be and
should always let someone know
when they change hunting loca-
tions.
"Another safety measure
hunters may forget about is prop-
erly securing a tree stand and
wearing a climbing belt. Last year
a hunter fell out of a tree stand
and broke his back," Tyer said.


Hunters' Safety


Is #1 Priority


"Too many falls are caused by
hunters falling asleep, slipping off
the stand or failing to secure the

stand."
When using a ladder stand,
the hunter needs to make sure
the stand Is at the proper angle to
the tree so the stand will not col-
lapse. Carrying extra bolts Is a
necessity when using a climbing
stand. A hunter could drop a bolt,
or a bolt could work loose from
the stand.
"Out of respect for the
environment and wildlife, hunters
have a responsibility to put safety
first," Tyer said.

least experienced group we've had
in a number of years. Only thru-ee
players-Tyson. James and Rod-
have real playing experience and
we are going to keep at least four.
and maybe five, freshmen and
sophomores on the varsity.
"It is going to be a definite
learning experience. Couple that
with a schedule that features four
defending state champions and
no fewer than a dozen games
against state ranked teams and
you know we have some hard
work ahead of us. We'll only have
four days to get ready for Florida
High and Tallahassee Godby. so
I'm concentrating on hard play'
the first part of the season and
execution the latter part."
"I hope our fans will continue
to give us their fine support and
patience as we attempt to once
again play the very best teams
and improve as the season pro-
gresses," Eppinette concluded.

first quarter.
Port St. Joe went three and
out also on their next possession,
giving Graceville the ball on their

The


Boyd


Report
By: Rep. Allen Boyd


"Celebrating the Season of Giving"


The holiday season is upon us
- and I would like to extend warm
wishes to everyone in North Florida
to have a safe and happy holiday.
This time of year can be hectic for
all of us. We become so wrapped
up in the, frantic, schedule of ship-
ping for gifts, 'attending parties,
and making travel preparations,
we forget -the, true meaning and.
spirit of the holiday season.
Especially: at this .time of year, it is
important to- remember .those in
our community who are less fortu-
nate and those, who because of ill-
ness or death in the family,. are suf-
fering or grieving instead of cele-
brating this joyous season.
I want to recognize those who
give their time, energy, and love to
make the holidays 'a happier time
for those less fortunate and join in
that effort. One group to whom I
am personally indebted, are the
volunteers and professional care-
givers involved in hospice care.
Hospice care is a compassion-
'ate way of caring for terminally ill,
people. Hospice caregiving teams
include, physicians, nurses, thera-
pists, home care aides, counselors
and most importantly, volunteers,
who help terminally ill patients and
their families deal with one of the
toughest transitions in life. The
hospice program, primarily based
in the home, treats the person, not
the disease; focuses on the family,
not the individual; and emphasizes
the patient's quality of life. Hospice
care ensures that the patient's life
is as fulfilling arid satisfying as
possible, right up to the last
moment.
Hospice, care has played an
important role in my life. Two years
ago, I lost my father to prostate
cancer. I do .not know what my
mother and family would have
done without the care the Big Bend
Hospice provided. Hospice care


allowed my father to die at home in
dignity, surrounded by the people
who loved him. The volunteers and
professionals at Big Bend not only
worked to relieve my father's pain
and meet his physical needs, but
they. also ministered to his. emo-
tional needs and spent time with
my family to prepare us for the dif-
ficult road ahead. My family and I
will never forget the commitment
and compassion of the caregivers
who helped us through this very
sad time.
Volunteers play a crucial role
in,: hospice nationwide. Of the
A115,000 persons involved in hos-
pice care in the United States,
about 95,000 are volunteers, giving
more than 15 million hours of their
time each year. Hospice volunteers
render a wide range of services for
patients such as performing
household chores, providing trans-
portation, or just being a support-
ive friend for the patient and the
family. Hospices also require vol-
unteer assistance in office chores
in preparations for special events.,
For those who lack the time to give
these .volunteer efforts, hospices
also rely upon grants and commu-
nity donations to keep their opera-
tions running. Without its volun-
teers and contributors, hospices
would not be able to provide their
unique services to North Florida's
patients and their families.
During the holidays, when we
celebrate all of the wonderful gifts
with which we have been blessed,
it is important that we look for
ways to give something back to our
communities. Your local hospice is
only one of hundreds of charitable
organizations that desperately
need your support. So today, I
encourage you to embrace the hol-
iday spirit of giving and share your
time, talents, and compassion with
those in need.


Coastal Residents Should Pay Bigger Share of Bill


For Storm and Hurricane Damage Say
FSU Researcherq-As A Result Of Study


A new tax model being devel-',
oped by Florida State University.,
urban planners will 'spread the
costs of hurricane planning,,
response and recovery efforts,
more equitably by requiring those
at greatest risk to pay the biggest:
share.
Professors Richard A. Smith',
and Robert E. Deyle, of the FSU '
department of urban and regional-
planning, are developing a model '
risk-based emergency manage-'
ment assessment program for Lee
County. They're working with I
geography Professor Jay Baker-'
and doctoral, student Michael'
Boswell. Once completed., the
model could be adopted by other ,
local governments In Florida and.
the nation.
"Florida is one of the most
vulnerable states to hurricanes,
not just because of our location,.
but also because of the extent of"
coastal development," Smith said.
"As a result, coastal storms strik-
ing ernments more than $650 million
over the past 20 years.
"By not controlling coastal
development, you are increasing,
the public cost of the storms. If
you're going to allow coastal
development,' at least people
should pay their own way." .
Currently, most local gorern-
ments pay for emergency manage-
ment and hurricane recovery
efforts out of their general funds,
primarily supported by property
taxes. Smith and Deyle say this.
formula is unfair to inland home-'
owners, who pay a disproportion-
ate share and end up subsidizing
those who live in riskier coastal,
zones. A sliding tax scale would
be more equitable, but would
allow people to continue to live in
highly desirable beach-front com-'
munities.
The three-year modeling
effort, scheduled to wrap up in
early 1998, is funded by a
$125,000 grant from the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration's Sea Grant pro-
gram. and matched with in-kind
services provided by the Lee
County Property Appraiser's

School District's first nominee for
the Sunshine Scholars Mathe-

Rita is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. James Dietz of
Wewahitchka. Rita has excelled in
all of her course work as well as
math and science. In grades nine
through 12i she has taken eight
semesters of advanced science
and nine semesters of advanced
math.
The selection committee con-
sisted of out-of-district educators:


Office and Department of Public
Safety.
The process involves first
determining the total costs for
hurricane related emergency
management services for the local
jurisdiction and then measuring
the risk characteristics of each
developed parcel based on its
location and the, design of the
structures on it.
The costs include both those
for planning, preparedness and
mitigation before storms hit as
well as those for evacuation,
emergency response and recovery
when storms strike. The risks
faced by' a developed parcel
include those from wind, storm
surge flooding and wave damage.
Some structures, such as
mobile homes, face great hazards
from wind damage almost any-
where in the county. The risk to
other structures is primarily a
function of their location and ele-
vation as well as the type of con-
.struction.
"During Hurricane Opal.
"more than 95 percent of the
structures that were' seriously
damaged were slab-on-grade,
concrete-block construction,"
Deyle said. "Houses, that were
properly elevated on pilings suf-
fered only minor damage."
Once the costs are calculated
and the risks of each property
parcel are determined, each par-
cel's fair share is computed using
the geographic information sys-
tem and database in the county
property appraiser's office.
The model is designed to' be
dynamic--to increase with. the
increased value of a home, for
example, and to decrease if home-
owners improve their property by
elevating the first floor to reduce
the risk of damage.
Once a working model is cre-
ated, the research can benefit
local communities in three ways:
by making homeowners more
accountable for their choices, pro-
viding new revenue sources for
local governments arid making
the tax system more equitable.

Christmas Tree Care for the Holiday Season


Although artificial Christmas
trees have gained considerable
popularity in recent.years, pri-
rmarily because of, their conven-
lence and consistent appearance,
many people still prefer a real
tree. If you're a traditionalist, it's
important that you shop early
and take good care of your pur-
chase from the moment you get it
home until the holidays are over..
Regardless,of, the type of nat-
ural Christmas' tree you choose,
whether it's an imported fir,, pine;
spruce, or a native:Florida red ce-
dar, you should select a fresh,
well-shaped tree. Before buying,
decide where you'll display the
tree, so that yop will know exactly
what size to purchase. If you plan
to put the tree in a comer or
against a wall, you might buy one
with a bad side and save a few
dollars.
It's important to shop at a
Christmas.tree lotwhere the trees:
are:'well displayed, ,so you. can
really see what yourYe'"getting for
your money. 'Orce '.you find, a

shape, you need to know how to. '
take care of it properly.
',If you buy your, tree several ,,;
days before you plan to set it up,
store it outdoors in a cool area .
under a shade or in a carport.'

inside,, saw the stump again, this
time, squaring off the diagonal.,
This creates a fresh wound which,
helps the tree take up water,
through the stump.
,Now, place the tree in ,a stand
that holds -water. Be sure you.-
keep the stand filled at all times.,
It's surprising how quickly a;
good-sized tree can take up a
quart of water. So check the wa-*
ter level at least once a day.
Place your tree in the coolest
part ,of the room. Keep it away,
from things like fireplaces, radia-
tors, air ducts, and even TV 'sets.
The heat from these can cause
the tree needles to dry out. nd
drop off very quickly.

Proper Christmas tree care is
only part of the story. There are
certain safety rules you should
follow carefully. Never use can-

flame on or near the. tree. If
you're using electric lights, check
them over very carefully for loose
connections and worn wires.
Don't overload your electrical
circuits. If you must use an ex-

heavy enough: for the current
load. Always turn the tree light off.

PSJES Book Fair


The Book Fair recently held in
the Port St. Joe Elementary
School Library was a great suc-
cess. The many books featured
offered students, parents and
teachers an opportunity to see the
latest, works by popular authors
and illustrators of books for
young readers. It was truly a fun
and educational experience for all
who attended.
The 1997-98 library assis-
tants had a big part in making
this fair the success that it was.
They are Becky Belin, Molly
Garrett, Randi Sasser, Allison
Walther, Brittany Alford, Melissa
Nixon, Jessica Ford, Megan Todd,


Johna Pittman, Anna Salzer,..

Kayleigh Lewis, Nicole Ford,
Candace Branch,. Canda' Borden,
Shelia Floyd, Kati Hoffman,
Lauren Wells, Emily Raffield and.
Danielle Densmore.
Many volunteers came to;
assist with the Book Fair, and
they certainly helped to make theft
week an invigorating time in the,
school. This Book Fair was staged
to help promote a love of books
and reading in children.


"You Readers"
While I was in Tennessee, my
sister told me an amusing anec-
dote that I thought I'd share. A
friend of hers was subbing at a lit-
tle country school. He was teach-
,ing a health lesson for seventh
grade on the systems in the body.
He posed his first question,
,',"Does anyone know what the
ureter is?" No response until a
boy raised his hand; and said,
"Oh, I know. Miss Fanny always
says, "You readers come up here"
Sympathy
WES extends .its sympathy to
teacher Becky Birmingham in the
death of her first cousin. He was
retired and lived in Blountstown.
Namesake,
Rhonda Pridgeon has a brand
new namesake. Her brother
Bobby and his wife, Paige, had a
beautiful little baby girl named
Kay Lee. Kay Lee weighed just a
little over seven pounds.
Congratulations!
Inservice
The kids had a little holiday
on Monday. While they were
relaxing, the teachers were prac-
ticing acronyms! Kim Whitfield
and Esther Taunton shared their
knowledge of FCATI
Then, we shared a little about
the upcoming SACS visit. Finally,
we continued incorporating the
SS in our lesson plans. All of
these initials mean that we're try-
ing to keep up with all the trends
in education!

MEDITATIONS OF A
yLanuntrLg Frarci r ,

By LOWELL F. ADAMS


Watch Out, Your
Sin Is Showing!

We are examples to
everyone
I Thessalonians 1:7


ONCE WHEN I WAS TEACHING a Junior Boys
Sunday School Class, at St Andrew Baptist Church, the truth
that others observe how we conduct ourselves as Christians,
really came home to me. It was during WWII and I had been a
cigarette smoker from the time I was a teenager.
The unhealthy aspects of tobacco was not an issue during
those days, but God had been dealing with me about the habit,
and I had been trying to quit. It was not easy, and after many
tries I was still smoking.
One Sunday morning, as the class was finished and we
were were just talking as we waited for the bell, one of the boys
silenced everyone else as he asked me, "Brother Adams, is it a
sin for a Christian to smoke?"
I had already determined in my own mind that it was not a
good habit. Here I stood in front of that large group of young
boys, who were looking at me, waiting for my answer. What I
said now surely would make a profound impression on them. I
also knew that they had, on many occasions, seen me smoke.I
was on the proverbial spot. There was only one answer.
"Yes," I told them, I think it is very likely a sin for a
Christian to smoke."
The next question was obvious. "Why do you smoke,
then?" he asked.
I explained to them I had been trying to quit, and I assured
them I was certainly going to quit smoking.
I Thessalonians 5:22 says for us to "Abstain from all
appearance of evil.."
When I was a young boy, I found a deck of playing cards.
My Mother told me to get rid of them, for she said they were
evil. She explained that people used them to gamble with, and
she said if someone saw me with them, they would think I was a
gambler. I have had an aversion to cards ever since.
I hasten to explain, gambling was considered to be evil by
most ever one in those days. That was before the proliferation
of casinos and government lotteries.
People are watching we should set a good example.

God


With Us

In Matthew 1:23 we
find "Behold, a virgin
shall conceive and bear a
son,; and His name shall
be called Emmanuel,
which means, God with
us.


After Thanksgiving Christians are ready for
the coming of the Baby Jesus as we celebrate
His birth. It is a time of preparation for the
church. We prepare ourselves for the greatest
gift ever given to mankind. God chose to offer
the divine through His son.
Our hearts and lives need to get ready for the
birth of Christ. Too often we are caught up in
ourselves. We place other priorities above
Christ. We value things; getting, spending and
possessing; above our eternal relationship with
the divine. God wants to be with us throughout
the season. Will we be with Him? Let us all open
our hearts once again for "The Coming of the
Christ Child."

Dear Counselor:
I'm. wondering if I have a
problem. Lately, everyone at'
work keeps telling me I have an
ill-natured disposition. I really
don't. They just keep saying
things that make me mad, and
when they mention my disposi-
tion, I really get mad.
I have even talked to my boss
about this, and he said some of
the other employees have men-
tioned it to him. All he said was
for me to "lighten up a little." Do
you think my problem is bad
enough that I need to see a coun-
s e l o r ? S e .
Signed,'
Don't Mean To Be Mean
Dear "Don't Mean To Be Mean":
I think the evidence you pre-
sented is indicative of a personal
interaction problem. When feel-
ings and behaviors cause prob-
lems with social or occupational
functioning, usually the need for
some form of outside interven-
lion is necessary.


If "everyone at work" keeps
telling you, then you are likely
behaving in ways that you may
not even be aware of. A counselor
can help increase your aware-
ness of the severity of the prob-
lem, and also provide sugges-
tions to decrease severity.
I suggest you' consult your
local mental health agency.
These agencies are staffed by
professionals who are trained to
assist with problems just like
yours.
Sincerely,
John Ray, M. S.
Counselor
