The Mexico Beach Police
Department. Gulf County
Sheriffs Department and Port St.
Joe Police Department joined
forces to arrest a fleeing suspect


last Thursday night, resulting in
charges of felony fleeing, attempt-
ing to elude and grand theft auto
on James Harvest Sawyer (17) of

Mexico Beach

Pldnting Palms


The City of Mexico Beach and citizens have dedicated
palm trees which are being planted along Highway 98, for
their main street beautification project. Citizens who donate
funding for a palm tree to be planted will be recognized with
dedication plaques on the tree the citizen purchased.
John McInnis, City Administrator. cormnented that it
will stimulate the palm tree theme since many of the resi-
dents and businesses along Highway 98 have already plant-
ed palm trees.
To date. 45 trees have been planted from Toucan's Res-
taurant running easterly toward the Gulf county line. Every
50 feet there will be a palm tree planted and it is estimated
there will be a total of 125-130 trees along the route when
the beautification project is completed. Next month, the City
of Mexico Beach is aiming to plant another 30 trees, to total
approximately 75.
If anyone is interested in donating to the project or pur-
chasing a tree please contact Mexico Beach City Hall at 648-
5700.


Gulf County Sheriffs Office
Captain Joe Nugent said the sus-
pect is also being held on addi-
tional charges from Bay County
for several burglaries, one count
of escape and one count of crimi-
nal mischief.
Capt. Nugent reported the
incident began on Mexico Beach
when Officer Nick Vanstrander
observed a' Ford station wagon
matching the description of a
stolen vehicle from Bay County.
When Officer Vanstrander
attempted to approach the vehi-
cle. Sawyer reportedly attempted
to back up and ram the Mexico
Beach Police Department vehicle.
Vanstrander began to pursue the
suspect vehicle south on Highway
98. toward Port St. Joe, as he
radioed ahead to the Gulf County
Sheriffs Office dispatcher, alert-
ing them of the chase.
Deputy Terry Hightower
joined in the pursuit, but both
officers lost sight of the suspect's
vehicle between St. Joe Beach,
and Dixie Belle curve.
Sheriffs Deputy Shawn
Butler and Captain Joe Nugent
sighted the station wagon in,
Highland View and gave chase."
Sawyer passed over the Tapper
Bridge in Highland View, but
before he reached the paper mill
overpass, Port St. Joe Police
Officer Jimmy Stephens topped
the overpass, coming north to
meet the suspect vehicle.
Nugent said Sawyer appar-
ently attempted to brake onthe,,
rain-soaked road and lost control,
veering off the right-hand shoul-
der of the road and hitting
approximately 20 retaining posts
in the paper mill parking lot.
Sawyer, was arrested and
charged with the various counts
from the Gulf County Sheriffs
Office, Mexico Beach Police
Department and Bay County
Sheriffs Office.
A 16 year old juvenile female
passenger in the vehicle sus-
tained a broken ankle in the acci-
dent. She has been charged with
possession of marijuana less than
20 grams by the Gulf County
Sheriffs Office.
Bay County officials are also
investigating Sawyer as a suspect
in several other burglaries in Bay
County, in addition to those he is
charged with, according to Capt.
Nugent.

Stumphole Road Being Beefed Up
One Beach Access Point Temporarily Closed for Several Weeks


SFlorida's. Department 'of
Transportation is in the process
of beefing up a 3.100 foot section
of Road C-30-E along the
Stumphole.


The section of road was
destroyed by Hurricane Opal just
over two years ago. Since that
time, Gulf County commissioners
have prodded FDOT to reenforce


the roadway to help protect Gulfs
only, access, road to St. Joseph
Peninsula.
The narrow stretch of land,
bordered on one side by the Gulf
of Mexico and the other by St.
, Joseph Bay. has been susceptible
to storm damage for many years.
FDOT beefed up the roadway
with an additional coat of asphalt
a few weeks ago. They are now in
Sthe process of building a 3.100
Foot long rip-rap berm on the Gulf
of Mexico side of the roadway. The
sL and one-half toot high berni is
Intended to protect the roadway'
from future storm waters.
Gulf County Sheriff Frank
McKeit]hen said beach access at
the Stumphole will be closed for
three to four weeks while the work
is being done. "As soon as FDOT
completes the 'road work, the
access point will reopen," he
added.
Permitted vehicles wishing to
drive on the beach can only legal-
ly, gain, access at designated
access points.

Leonard Costin gave a deed for Cessna Drive right-of-way
to Gulf County at their meeting Tuesday evening. County at-
torney Tim McFarland is shown assisting in the deed trans-
fer. Costin stipulated in his deed that ownership of the
right-of-way would return to him should the county fail to
secure the promised grant to build the road with.


Almost all the players in Gulf

Commission meeting to discuss
Various aspects of the develop-
ment with the board.
Larry Parker. representing
Dames and Moore. addressed the
board concerning the airport' fea-,
Ssibility study the firm is doing for
the board. .
Dames and Moore had
requested, in writing, a 60-day
extension to complete the study
during' the board's last meeting,


I: 1


but were given only a 30-day
extension so ,the study could be
presented to this ,quarter's
CFASPP meeting.
Parker explained to the board
Tuesday night that there was a
wider window of time for the
study to be reviewed and the 60-
day extension would not postpone
the application. He further
explained the extra time was
needed in order for Dames and
Moore to adequately complete the
feasibility study.
The board agreed to allow the
60-day extension.
Parker said he would have ,a
preliminary report for the board
to review at their first meeting in
February, and a final report
should be complete by their final
meeting in February.
Flight School/Air Charter
Service
Local businessman John
Cullen told the board he was
expanding his facilities at Costin
Airport to include a flight instruc-
tion school.
Cullen announced an open
house, scheduled for March 28th,
to kick off the full flight training
school. He said training tools
would include a "state of the art"
flight simulator at his location.
Cullen also told the board he
had made application for certifi-
cation to operate an ajr garter'
service from the airport facility.
Scandy White Boats Update
Dennis Weaver reported to
the board that things were going
well with plans to build Scandy
White Boats' building plant at the
at the air park site, along Cessna
Drive. .
He said construction should
begin within 90 days on the plant
and boat production from the
facility should begin in about six
months.
County commissioners voted
to pass a resolution requesting
Department of Transportation
grant funds, through Enterprise
Florida, for the construction of a
roadway and infrastructure for
access to the air park property on
Cessna Drive.
Leonard Costin deeded the
Cessna Drive property to the
county during Tuesday's meeting
at no cost.
Health Dept. Takes Over
Dental Assistance Program
Gulf County Public Health
Director Doug Kent told the board
the health department had been
successful in their efforts to keep
the dental assistance program
open in Wewahitchka after an
announcement by North Florida
Medical Center of plans to close
the facility.
SKent said the program was
the only one within five surround-'
ing counties that offered a break
in dental assistance to those in
economic need.

acre site and building; $88,000 is
left owing on the site, Kent said.

Earned A Name

Among Educators, Where It Counts
THE GULF COUNTY SCHOOL system has earned an envi-
ous name for itself the only way which is viable; by the product
which it turns out. Very recently this editor was in the presence
* of David Erdman, the dean of Admissions of Rollins College
which happens to be located in Orlando. Erdman was engaged
in conversation with several members of the Scholarship Com-
mittee for Gulf County Schools, a committee made up of laymen.
Erdman was reporting on the progress of several county stu-
dents, currently attending institutions of higher learning, as a
means of engaging in conversation. He mentioned one female
student, in particular, who happened to be involved in the study
of medicine.
HE SAID, AND WE quote him directly, "She is doing ex-
tremely well in her studies, but then I expected nothing less of
her, because she is from Gulf County. Gulf County students
are among the top 10-15 percent in the state of Florida who
are able to handle the college curriculum with no problem."
Erdman went on to say that Gulf County's unique program
of encouraging students to attend some kind of institution of
higher learning after they complete their high school career, is
well known in education circles. He happens to.be one of the ar-
chitects of the program, sponsored by the late Jesse Ball duPont
and initiated in Gulf County schools. The program has since be-
come famous and has served as the blueprint for other schools,
all across the nation, to follow. The program has been written up
in USA Today, The New York Times and. scores of newspapers of-
lesser size and reputation. "
ERDMAN IS QUALIFIED BY reason of his occupation, to be
a' qualified judge of such matters.
During his conversation, Erdman went on to describe a visit
he had made to Gulf County Schools, that day, and told of the,
enthusiasm he witnessed among the students for their learning
experience.
Erdman must know how to recognize such signs, the prod-
uct of the 'schools-captains of industry, doctors, dentists, high
ranking military officers, educators, top trial lawyers, editors,
authors, and other top producers in their field coming out of lo-
cal schools-all are evidence that he does.



In the Old Tar Bucket
: PRESIDENT CLINTON KEEPS getting into the old tar buck-
et deeper and deeper. Every day, almost, it's a different sex scan-
dal with a different woman. If it's true, one wonders when he
finds time to do his presidential duties for spending so much
time with his philandering around. How can he keep so many
women from finding out about each other? How does he keep his
wife from leaving him?
The numerous lurid stories cause many to believe there is at
least an inkling of truth here. There are too many of them and
too many so-called facts to be all made up stories.
How-can a .respectable woman.. allow her. character to. be
dyawn through such talk, if there isn't at least some truth to the
jlegalti.s?. Doesn't self respect enter in here some where?
Whatever happened to the "decent woman"? The "decent man"?.
THIS LATEST ALLEGED dalliance suggestion is different
from the others, such as Gennifer Flowers and Paula Jones.
First, there are too many people in high places involved in a
cover-up; the epitome of no-no's. If you are caught in the act,
you had better not have tried to hide the act. Why, heavens to
betsy! That would make a hypocrite out of the perpetrators.,
wouldn't it?
Second, there is no hint of Monica Lewinsky wanting any re-
venge or publicity from having the opportunity to sleep with the
President of the United States. Why, isn't that the dream of every
red-blooded American girl? Not call for an apology. Not sue for a
princely sum for not filing charges.'-None of that money-grubbing
stuff. .. .
IS THE PRESIDENT TRUTHFUL in his denial ufider oath?
Why do these things keep popping up if he is an honorable and,
truthful man? Where is the honor? Where is the truth? If the
man, in his sworn testimonies, can't be trusted to tell the whole
truth and nothing but the truth about his charges. how can we
trust him to tell the truth about real important, national issues'?
Wouldn't that make him guilty of perjury? Isn't perjury a felony?
Doesn't commission of a felony preclude: one's qualification to
serve and sit as President of the United States?


FUN KER DOWN WIT# NES BY KESLEY COLBERT

I'd been out of town for a cou-
ple of days-you know how hard
it is to "keep up" when you're on
the run . I'd missed the
news. Cathy didn't bother to
break it very gently, "Honey, did
you hear Carl'Perkins died?"
No, I hadn't.
I sat for a minute.
A long minute.
Carl Perkins was from up
near Tiptonville. in Lake County,
on the Tennessee side of the
mighty Mississippi. He was born
dirt poor. His father sharecropped
some of that rich delta bottom
land that yielded lots of cotton but


very little cash . .

Maybe that's why all of us
took to ol' Carl like we did ......
Elvis was alright, but he was
from Memphis. And he was so big
so quick! He didn't hardly have
time to be one of us.
And I'm telling you, Jerry Lee
could get'ya out in the aisle mov-
ing, but he was a little too much
show for us sometimes. He could
be about half crazy even way back
then! Our mothers might have
been right about him ......
Carl's first guitar was made
out of a cigar box and a broom
handle. I never heard him play it
mind you but, rest .assured, he
could make it ring! I bet you he
picked cotton with rhythm.
He strolled into Sun Records

Jake Was Big and Tough, But, Oh, So Gentle!


BIG JAKE MET his maker
Friday night after an altercation
with a car while in a frisky jaunt
outside the friendly confines of
his'fenced yard. Jake was in the
habit of climbing the fence when
he felt the urge to roam but he
had never had an encounter with
a car before, except for the time
he fell-as a puppy-out of the
rear of a pick-up truck.
His owner, our grandson,
Bill, was teaching him to ride in
the rear of his pick-up and while
passing some other dogs, one
day, Jake fell out in his exuber-
ance over seeing the other dogs
beside the road. Bill stopped,
picked Jake up again, checked
him over for cuts and abrasions,
and upon finding none, tossed
him back in the pick-up and pro-
ceeded on his way.
Jake was a big. friendly, 100-
pound chocolate lab, with a wet,
messy kiss and a sniff or two for
everybody. His feet were as large
as saucers and his head was as
huge as a basketball. His coat
was an unblemished, shiny, dark


chocolate.
He liked to fetch almost any-
thing thrown for his pleasure and-
Bill had him trained to retrieve
birds and drop them at his feet.
He delighted in going bird
hunting and would bound about,
ceaselessly, over the bird field un-
til he was called on to retrieve.

JAKE WAS GENTLE and pa-
tient with baby, MaKayla. MaKay-
la is 18 months old. Jake was
barely two months older. Jake
was the official babysitter for his
"little sister". MaKayla would
crawl all over Jake and the big,
awkward puppy would lie motion-
less until MaKayla got through


climbing, tugging and loving his
neck, climbing down, before he
would move. It was like he knew,
instinctively, any movement on
his part might cause her to get
hurt. Besides, he was enjoying
the interlude as much as MaKay-
la was. He was protective of her
and watched .out for her.
MaKayla is going to miss
Jake, too.

.JAKE WAS A fixture in the
back shop, down at The Star. He
had a habit of sprawling out to
sleep right in the doorway. But,
that's natural. That's where the
dust-catching carpet was laid and
it was softer than the hard con-

Also, that was near where his
master's press he operated most,


was situated. When Bill would

didn't worry about making a liv-
ing. raising a family, national pol-
itics or the price of eggs in
China-I don't think we had a
clue as to how much fun we were
having ...... aw. Mother fussed
about that "crazy stuff we listened
to" but, hey, :Granny used to get
on her about that "wild Frank
Sinatra" and that "swinging Glenn
Miller".
It gave us something to do.
Something to talk about between
classes. Something to look for-
ward to on Friday nights. I was
head over hills in love with Jane
Hill through half of the football
season and most of basketball,
until-she rather unceremoniously
told me You Got The Right String
Baby But The Wrong Yo Yo .....
That was the year I swore off
women forever. ,
On March 22, 1956, Carl was
on his way:to New York to do the
Ed Sullivan and ,Perry Como
shows when his car collided with
a truck. Perkins awas almost
killed, and his brother Jay did die
two years.later frpm injuries sus-
tained in the crash.
Most of the experts in the
music industry feel Carl's music
career never came close to where
it could have been because of that
wreck.
S I don't know about that! The
Beatles recorded his music. Elvis'
version of Blue Suede Shoes didn't
do too badly. Every real guitar
picker that's come along in the
past quarter century has copied
some of his "licks". He won
Grammy awards. He is enshrined
forever in the Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame . .
But mostly, he escaped those
hot Mississippi delta cotton fields
We cheered any of our own
that madee the leap".
I don't groove as much today
on rockabilly as I once did. I'm
older. I have two sons. I've got all,
kinds of responsibilities. I can't
sing. a lick, I've -never had. rhythm.
.. ., but the, mere mention of
Carl Perkinsjjnakes my feet move i
a little. My heart lifts. I remember
some fun, times, some great
moments. Jane Hill- comes to
mind .. ... ,
Carl had an impact on all of
us.
I appreciate Jerry Lee making
it up to Jackson for the funeral.,

Rivers. And George Harrison. And

little nearer 'if the occasion
should arise when he was need-
ed.
When we would pause for
lunch, he would usually lie under
the table in order to catch any
loose bits which might fall to the
floor. He was an expert at catch-
ing ice cubes, which one of the:
men- would toss'up for his bene-
fit,- crushing them. with two
chomps of his powerful jaws.
He reminded me of that old
logo of Perfect Circle piston rings.
It featured a rough, tough pugilis-
tic looking fellow with the slogan
underneath, "tough, but oh, so
gentle!"
That was Jake.

FRIDAY NIGHT, JAKE heard
some dogs barking behind his
house and went to join in the rev-
elry. As he was crossing Long Av-
enue, in his search for the other
dogs, he ran out in front of a car,
which struck him in the powerful,
barrel chest, crushing it. "
It was a sad time around
Bill's: home that night, because
"Big Jake" had become like one of
the family during 'his two year
abode at 1211 Palnj Boulevard.
He was the ob ect of special
trips down to the bay in the late
afternoons in order for him to run
and romp.and splash in the wa-
ter's edge. Then he would get the
mud and salt water rinsed off his
glistening coat while he revelled
in the experience. He was a Lab-
rador Retriever all .the way! He
loved romping and he loved the
,. water.
His presence will be difficult
to replace.

FCPC Adopting ISO


Standard, on Qualty


When a person purchases a
car, he sets certain standards for
his purchase before he signs on
the dotted line. When European
purchasers buy paper products
from American manufacturers, or
any other producers, they want
their manufacturers to adhere to
certain standards and want assu-
rance that they are getting what
they bargained for.
This is ISO 9000.
Steve 'Miles, with Florida :
Coast Paper Company, is in
charge of setting up the system of
this quality product program at
FCPC .. ,
Miles addressed the Rotary
Club last Thursday on the impor-
tance of the paper mill adopting
this 'standard of excellence' pro-
gram if they hope to continue do-
ing an export business. It assures
the customer-some. 4000 miles
away-that he is receiving aprod-
uct that is 'as advertised..
The ISO 9000 standard meas-
ure is very important, not only to
Florida Coast Paper Company,
but to Port St. Joe as well. It
means the continuation of jobs: it
means the continuation of mar-
kets.
In reality. Europeans are pur-
chasing, sight unseen, a product
they must use because of the ex-
pense Involved to return it to the
sender. The sender must guaran-
tee the product by a standard
system of quality to get the busi-
ness.


I /-


Miles said the ISO 9000 stan-
dard must be met continually, in
order to become a dependable
gauge of standards a customer
may depend upon. "It requires
continuous monitoring by audi-
tors to be effective."
The speaker said it usually
requires about a year for a firm to
meet all requirements which
guarantee a customer of quality,
delivery certainty, and manufac-
ture practices. "We'll be ready to
certify in early summer," he said.
"All paper mills in our family al-
ready are governed by ISO re-
quirements .except FCPC. and
we're quickly achieving the stan-
dard."
The ISO 9000 standard pro-
cess has been adopted by 55 for-
eign countries, including the Eu-
ropean block of nations. It
produces a guarantee that a
product' comes up to specific
specifications. FCPQ, is developing
a European market, based on
this 'achievement. "If we are td
maintain this market, we must
adopt and continue to meet the
ISO 9000 requirements. so you
can understand why it is so im-'
portant to us." Miles stressed.
It is important to us, if we
are to even be on the European
shopping list." he said. in closing.
Guests of the club were Russ
Schultz and Donna MNax-well of
Port St. Joe. and Ray Funder-
burk. an ISO 9000 auditor.

McSpadden told the Kiwanis Club

gressing on schedule and praised
the people of Port St. Joe for rais-
ing $200.000 dunrng the past II

Speak During
D.A.R. Meeting
The St. Joseph Bay Chapter
of the Daughters of the American
Revolution held its annual
"National Defense" meeting
January 21st at the St. Joseph
Bay Country Club.
Highlighting the luncheon
meeting was an address by
Colonel Margaret A. Brown, Chief
Nurse Executive, 325th Medical
Group at Tyndall Air Force Base.
After attaining her B.S,
degree in Nursing, Colonel Brown
received her Air Force commis-
sion in 1974. During her 23 years
of service in the states and
Germany, Colonel Brown was
promoted five military ranks and
earned a Master's Degree in
Public Administration from Troy
Univer-sity.
Colonel Brown's words did>
much to make all in attendance
aware of the sacrifices made by
members of the military families;
moving every three to four years,
never knowing when the call to
Turkey._, Bosnia or Saudi will
come.
In her words. "Its hard work,
the hours can be long. families
are uprooted, there is personal
sacrifice and inconvenience."
Does she regret her choice?
Colonel Brown's reply: "Not in a
million years!!!"
Lieutenant Elaine Foster, a
six month veteran, accompanied
'Colonel Brown and spoke briefly
of her love of the Air Force and
her desire to make it her life-long
career.
The next meeting of the St.
Joseph Bay Chapter will be held
at the country club on February
18th. The program will highlight
the winners of the "American
History" essay contest.

ing site.
He announced plans to hold
one of the state bass fishing tour-
nament qualifiers at the landing
on the weekend of March 14-15..
Approximately 150 fishermen,
along with a number of bass fed-
eration officials, will be present
for the tourney.
Creel said area bass fishing
clubs and individuals had con-
tributed the funds presented to
the board., and several other clubs
should be heard from in the near
future. Bass fishing organizations
have also donated signage at the
park, as well as organized some
clean-up and pick-up campaigns.
"Bass fishermen have had a
bad history because of some mis-
understandings," Creel said.
"We're trying to set an example for
the state.",
Creel said efforts are under
way to attract next year's State
Bass Tournament to the park. He
noted that fishermen from all over
the state would participate and

You may think there is safe-
ty in numbers, but. numbers
don't mean a thing where dental
disease is concerned. There is
no "safe" age, and age in itself
should not mean tooth loss, at
least not if you get regular den-
tal care.
Gum disease or gingivitis,
for example, or the more serious
periodontal disease in which
tooth-supporting bone is
attacked, know no age barriers.
Children and adults alike can be
threatened.
Gingivitis and periodontal
disease usually develop slowly
and may not cause any pain or
discomfort until an abscess
develops. Unfortunately, it is
much too easy for gingivitis to
progress to periodontal disease


>afety In


lumbers


without your being aware of it.
It's not like a toothache that
quickly lets you know when
something is wrong. When the
gums begin to recede and teeth
begin to loosen, however, major
work will be needed to save
them.
Don't wait for that to happen
to you. Get regular dental
checkups. At the first signs of
gum problems, have the condi-
tion treated by your dentist so
your teeth will last as long as
you do.

My version of the history of the ancient city 1812-1854
and the ensuing dormancy of the area prior to 1910, when
the new town of Port Saint Joe was established. A moderate
narrative of subsequent facts and events of the new town,
1910 through 1966, also is given.

by Henry A. Drake
March 1967
Editor's Note: Drake was a resident of Port Saint Joe for more than
30 years, (approximately 20's 50's) during which time he served as
General Auditor of the Apalachicola Northern Railroad Company and its
affiliated companies, and many years as a Postmaster).


Florida was first explored in 1512 by Ponce de Leon, a Spanish
adventurer. It was ceded to Great Britain by Spain in 1763 in exchange
for Cuba and reacquired by the Spaniards in 1781. It was ceded to the
United States in 1821 and organized as a territory in 1822...Winston's
Encyclopedia.

The year 1838 was an important one in Florida history. On February
2, the Territorial Council, seated at Tallahassee, selected St. Joseph over
such older and larger cities in the territory, as Pensacola, St. Augustine
and Tallahassee, as a site for the drafting of a state constitution, prepara-
tory to Florida becoming a state of the Union. According to legend St.
Joseph, situated on beautiful St. Joseph Bay, had its beginning as a
community about 1812 while the territory was still under Spanish rule.
The United States Government established a post office at St. Joseph on
December 28, 1835 and the community, then in Franklin county, was
chartered as a municipality on January 11, 1836. The site is now in Gulf
county.
The Convention date was set for Monday, December 3, 1838. Florida
had been a territory only since 1821 when it was purchased from Spain
at an average price of 14 cents an acre. At the time there were only an
estimated 4,560 white persons in the territory. According to a special
census just prior to the Convention, Florida had only 48,223 residents of
which number 21,132 were Negro slaves and 958 were free blacks.
In a special referendum held in 1837 on statehood, only 2,214 votes
were cast, and of this number 1,274 were against statehood.
Delegates from throughout territorial Florida began arriving at St.
Joseph, by land and sea, the first weekend in December 1838. The pro-
moters of St. Joseph had been quite successful in getting the town well
established during the year 1835 and by the time of the Convention it
was prospering well. Among the hotels offering excellent accommoda-
tions for the Convention were the Byron, Pickwick, Fontaine, Mansion
House, Shakespeare, Railroad Cottage and the,.German Ocean House.
The Convention Hall had been built by E. J. Wood, one of the leaders of
the St. Joseph project, a director of the Lake Wimico and St. Joseph.
Canal and Railroad Company and a representative of Franklin county in
the Territorial Council. Paintings of many famous American statesmen
decorated the interior walls of the Hall. Only 46 of the 56 delegates elect-
ed were on hand when the Convention assembled at high noon December
3. The Rev. Peter W. Gautier. Sr.. Methodist minister, opened the
Convention with prayer.
In the selection of St. Joseph as a site for the convention shrewd pol-
itics (then as now) played a major role. Peter W. Gauuter. Jr., editor of the
St. Joseph Times and also a Franklin county representative to the
Territorial Legislative Council of Florida, succeeded in getting the new
county of Calhoun created from Franklin county. with St. Joseph desig-
nated as the county seat. In the same year Gautier. a lawyer by training.
received an appointment as United States Marshal for the Apalachicola
District. which covered most of the present area of Northwest Florida.
... The Calhoun county' delegates, controlled by the promoters of St.
Joseph, were William P. Duval and Richard C. Allen, considered two of
the ables~.,uen in the territory 3in.ppt of prestige and,abdity.. The.Saiqts
had hoped t6- get Duval fiaimed Chairmain and thereby corfitfol ftie
Convention. However, upon a count of the votes cast, Duval lost the
Chairmanship to Judge Robert Raymond Reid of St. Augustine by one
vote. On January 11. 1839 the constitution was ready for final passage
and when put to a vote resulted 55 for and one against. The lone dis-
senting vote was by Dade county delegate Richard Fitzpatrick who was
still angered over the controversy regarding Territonal banks whose
bonds, under law, had been guaranteed by the Territory. Agreement on
this was reached, however, when the Convention voted to submit the
constitution to the people for ratillcation. ....,
The referendum election was held May 6, 1839 and the results were
close with a majority. of only 113 votes for ratification, .the vote being
2,071 for and 1.958 against. The results were not announced until
February 10, 1841. The exact reason for the delay is not known but
Calhoun county which had lost the chairmanship upon organization of
the Convention voted heavily against ratification the vote being 275 to
73.
The constitution specified Tallahassee as the capital for five years
upon Florida becoming a state, after which a permanent capitol would be
chosen. This might have been except for the desolation and destruction
that had befallen St. Joseph prior to the Territory's admission as a state
in 1845, as a consequence of the 1841 epidemic of yellow fever and the
bank failures throughout the country which, with the decline in cotton
prices, resulted in the 1842 bankruptcy of the St. Joseph & lola Railroad
built in 1836.
Following, the referendum vote :and after six years of political strife
and turmoil. 'in which statehood as well as the proposed division of
Florida into twto territories (East and West) was debated throughout the
territory, Congress passed an Act admitting Flonda and Iowa as states.
The St. Joseph constitution became the organic law of Florida upon
its admission to the Union on March 3, 1845 as the 27th state. The con-
stitution remained in effect until Florida's secession on January 10, 1861
requiring a new constitution which was signed April 27, 1861, although
the state was not re-admitted into the Union until 1868 with the adop-
tion of the new constitution. Meanwhile, Tallahassee remained the capi-
tol.
Peter W. Gautier, Jr., editor of the St. Joseph Times, also a Territorial
legislator and son of an English born Methodist minister, was reared In
Georgia. The Gautier family, upon moving to Florida, had settled in the
St. Andrew Bay area (now Bay county). Subsequently, the family moved
to Marianna where young Gautier practiced law. He later lived at
Apalachicola and operated a hotel there prior to acquiring the St. Joseph
Telegram newspaper from R. Dinsmore Westcott who had published the
newspaper from the offices of the Apalachicola Advertiser, also owned b'

Westcott.
In the Spring of 1836 Gautier moved his press to St. Joseph and in
November changed the name of the newspaper to the St. Joseph Times,
which became one of the largest daily newspapers of the South in that
era. It was the most quoted sheet in Florida, chiefly because of Gautier's
wit and cleverness.
The Apalachicola Gazette, established in 1839, is regarded as having
been the first daily newspaper ini Florida.
During 1838 a sand road, later called Old Stage road, was opened
from Georgia through Marianna in Jacks6n countyy to St. Andrew Bay
and eastward to St. Joseph and Apalachicola. along the same route gen-
erally as the present U. S. Highway No. 98. This road was originally
planned to run directly from Marianna to Apalachicola. but the pen and
political influence of Gautier resulted in the road being routed through
the St. Andrew Bay settlement n a St. Joseph to Apalachicola. A stage line
to Marianna was established in November 1838, and the St. Joseph post
office received its mail service twice weekly from Nlarianna. The Marianna
post officewas established March 10. 1828.
it is plain to see that Gautier played a prominent and dominant part
in the events leading to the Conventon as well as the later developments

Prevention Coalition

Congressman Ha Spent Past Several
Months Meeting' With District Leaders


At a press conference on
Wednesday, January 21, Con-"
gressman Allen Boyd (D-North-
Florida) announced his efforts to.
develop a "Coalition for a Drug,
Free North America".
The Congressman has spent",.
the last several months meeting
with community leaders across
the Second District of Florida and
inviting them to participate in a'


comprehensive, long-term effort
to prevent and treat substance
abuse among North Florida's
young people. Boyd was accom-
panied by several of the coali-
tion's advisory group, including
local and. Florida drug prevention
leaders, other community lead-
ers, and junior and senior high
school students from all parts of
the district.


Lisa Gentry

Local Student Will
Join Presidential

Classroom Program
Lisa Gentry, a senior at Port
St. Joe High School, will travel to
our nation's capital as a partici-
pant in Presidential Classroom-,
"America's premier civic education
,program. The program .will, take
.place from March ,14 through
March 21.

school students from across the
country arid abroad. Lisa will,
take part in seminars presented
by leaders representing each
branch of government, the mili-
tary, media and lobbying organi-
zations. Students are-also sched-,
.:uled for a private .tour of the
White House, appointments with
.their senators' and :representa-
.tives' offices and a visit to a for-
eign embassy.

The:balance of the week in
Washington will be filled 'with
small group workshops on to-
day's hottest issues, visits to the
monuments and museums, a
night at the theater and a com-



"Klds today live in a 'society
where,' ven. in their classrooms
.and" neighborhoQds', they are
faced with peer. pressure to .use
drugs and alcohol at an increas-
ingly younger age," said Boyd. "At
times like these, it is crucial for
communities to come together to
support families in the effort to
help our young people make the
right decision."
"The good news is that we are
seeing evidence that comprehen-
sive community coalition efforts
are making a difference in reduc-
ing substance abuse in targeted
areas, even in the worst cases.
That is why I am working with
concerned parents and communi-
ty leaders to develop the "Coali-
tion for a Drug-Free North Flori-
da" to bring 'attention to the
problem of drug abuse."
Boyd is establishing a net-
work of parents, youth, media,
business leaders, educators, law
enforcement officials, religious
leaders and others to be a part of
the coalition. The goal of the coa-
lition is to create a resource cen-
ter for planning community pre-
vention initiatives, establishing


mencement celebration.
STo participate, students must
be a junior or senior in high
school, hold a "B" average or
higher or rank in the top 25 per-
cent of their class, and show
commitment to community or
school involvement through par-
ticipation in co-curricular acti'.i-
ties.
Lisa is currently employed
with the Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce, and she has been
working there since March of
1997. She will be sponsored by
the Nelson-Plews Memorial Fund.
The' fund's pnmary focus is the
encouragement. of excellence it

and promoting anti-drug norms,
and encouraging | parents land
neighbors to become and stay in-
volved in drug prevention.

Rep. Boyd first thought of
spearheading the coalition during
last year's session of Congress
when' President Clinton signed
the Drug-Free Communities Act
into law. This legislation, which
was written to encourage the
creation of comprehensive corn-'
munity anti-drug coalitions, will
target $143.5 million in financial
support to those communities
that demonstrate a long-term
commitment to reducing sub-
stance abuse among youth.

"North Florida's young people
need our help. As a member of
Congress, I wanted to assist my
constituents in organizing a 'dis-
trict-wide effort to bring attention
to this serious problem. 'It is my
hope that organizations through-
out the district will apply for this
funding, and with the support
and involvement of the families
and neighbors of North Florida,
we will keep our young people
drug-free for life."

live in ways that differ from what He seems to want.
The truth is, God did create Adam and Eve with the desire
to live and enjoying God's way. God wanted pleasure and
fellowship with His creation. He created mankind "in His own
image" with an eternal soul. But He also created them as "free
agents". They had the privilege of making decisions, right or
wrong Otherwise they would have been simple zombies. No
glory or pleasure to Him in that kind of obedience.
God made only o.ie rule for them to observe. For their own
benefit, the fruit of one tree was forbidden. They could eat the
fruit of all other trees in that beautiful garden. They enjoyed the
fruit, the garden, and the wonderful, loving fellowship of the,
Heavenly Father for a long while. ;
Their freedom to choose, however, eventually had a 'tragic
effect on their utopian existence. Had they not listened to
Satan's lies on that fateful day, they would still be living in that
lovely garden, enjoying the fellowship and 'love of the
Heavenly Father. And all their children. including you and me,
would be enjoying that same heavenly abode. God had clearly
warned them if they ate of'that t-ree, they would surely die. And
when they partook of it, they became "sinners". Their bodies.
indeed, began to die. You and I inherited that sinful death.
That "is why everyone is a sinner, regardless ,of how "good"
they may be. That is why Jesus came and gave Himself to "die"
in our stead. Our FAITH in Jesus restores us to that blessed
former existence; God gives us a free choice. just as He did
Adam and Eve in this matter. Faith won't change the death of
our sinful, earthly bodies, but it %\ill guarantee us a "new"
eternal body, to go with our already eternal soul. And it gives us
a new~"garden" (heaven) in which to spend eternity with Jesus.
\\e can accept or refuse this gift of God's love.

God's


Word

In Isaiah 40:8 we find,
"The grass withers, the
flower fades; but the word
of our God will stand for


Oliver F. Taylor ever." I read books of
Visitation Minister, First devotionals, church his-
United Methodist Church story, and biographies of
Christians, but I always come back to The Book.
This is the source for every Christian.
Some people put the Bible on the shelf so it
may not get damaged. Others would never write
in the Bible. A Bible without spots and wear
can't give anyone spiritual nourishment. A Well
used Bible is a great asset.
Every Christian needs several Bibles that
have a lot of wear and tear. Spiritual help comes
to those who search the scriptures as they seek
the Lord. God's word is found beneath the cov-
ers of the Bible which is the primary source. The
Bible should be a part of our daily lives.,

Dear Counselor:
I am probably the most disor-
ganized person alivel I lose my car
keys, purse, wallet, important
papers, and just about anything
else;you can imagine on a regular
basis. This can sometimes be
quite expensive, as recently. I had
to replace prescription glasses
that I had mislaid.
I am a professional 'person
with a very responsible job, and
these habits also cause me some
problems at the job, but not so
much that my job is in danger.
Please help me learn how to get
myself in gearl
Signed, Frazzled
Dear Frazzled,
Some people are born with an
uncanny ability to be totally
ordered in every aspect of their
lives. Those folks are to bie
admired because they are rare.
The rest of us have to work at it.,
The first step is to take a look
at your daily schedule. Try to
write down the places you will be
(or expect to be). In doing this, you
,will note which times you are like-
ly to be busy (and therefore, most
likely to misplace things).
, Secondly, as the old cliche
says, find "a place for. everyth ing.
and keep everything in its place."
.If you're like most folks, it's easy
when you come in from work to
absently lay, down your car keys
and then get busy and forget
where you've placed them. Make It
a daily taskass soon as you close
your door at home, to take your
keys, purse, etc., to a place where
you can go right to it. .
Get one file divided into 12
months for your bills, and unla-
beled file for: your important
papers. Take an hour to put your
most important papers. ,(will,
resume. insurance, etc.),.in the
unlabeled file, write in marker on
the outside what is contained in


it, and put it in one place where
you will always keep it.
With your monthly bills, file.
them in the month you received
them. When doing this, keep in
mind that there is a certain length
of time to keep these papers. After
that date. they are just extra
paper that you don't need around.
Lastly. at work. a to-do list is
an excellent way to keep track of
your obligations. Take a legal pad,
put the date at the top. your
name, and the words "TO DO" at
the top. Then, list as much as you
can think of that needs to be,
done, and when. Star things that
you feel are biggest priority.
When you complete an acdl 'l-
ty, take a highlight marker and
mark through it. When you come
to the bottom of the page. look
over what you haven't done, and
make It the priorities of your next
week's list. Again, as you do each
activity, line it out. so that you
- know that you are through.
There are many other ways to
learn to be more organized. Check
your local library under the busi-
ness section to find more books
on this subject. There are also
many excellent topics available at
your local bookstore, or on-line
via the internet. Tf you need fur-
ther advice, please contact us at
Gulf County Guidance Clinic at
227-1145.
