Eighth Annual Tpelo Festival"
Featured Saturday at Lake Alice Park
at 10:30 C.S.T
s The Apalachicola River valley
is' the only place In the world
where the famous tupelo honey is
produced and the City of Wewa-

The festival is under the di-
rection of Kenny Strange, presi-
dent of the Wewahitchka Cham-

ment and socializing.
The Tupelo Honey Festival re-
ceived a boost in publicity last
year, with the filming of "Ulee's
Gold" in the Wewahitchka area.
The film told the story of a bee-
keeper and was the vehicle for its
star, Peter Fonda, being nominat-
ed to receive a coveted "Oscar" at
the recent award show.
This will be the eighth annual
production of the festival.
Entertainment, which will
be featured, includes an appear-

WHAT'S WITH ALL THESE SCHOOL kids shooting up their
campuses and killing their fellow students? What do they have
against their victims, apparently chosen at random? How do you
The latest incident, of course, is the two 11 and 13 year ,old
boys in Jonesboro, Arkansas who hid in the woods beside their
middle school and opened fire on the students as they left the
school buildings at the behest of a fire alarm which they had
It's becoming just as dangerous attending school as it was to
work in post offices a few months ago. Pick up the papers and a
new postal employee was satisfying a grudge against his superi-
ors. : '*' :'
In the latest school incident, the 13 year old shooter was
said to be angry because his girlfriend had dumped him ...love
problems at 13 years of age! What would have been the: result of
his being dumped if he had been at least 21? It would probably
have been more of an entanglement than even Ann Landers
could have handled.
OF COURSE, THE ANTI GUN lobby got into the act; pointing
their finger at the incident and blaming the gun instead of the
unstable condition of the boy, with his now-known history of
death threats against his peers who had supposedly wronged
him. These were not taken seriously, as we're sure your threat to
"kill" someone who has ,wronged you at some time in the past
was not. But, then, you never did, or even tried to, did you? .
What would have kept these same two boys from obtaining a
butcher knife from their mother's kitchen to carry out their
threat? Another teen did just that a few days ago. What are we
to do; outlaw butcher knives? How will, you operate a kitchen
without a butcher knife?
MAKING IT ILLEGAL TO sell a gun isn't the answer. We
don't know the answer, but we're convinced outlawing the sale
of firearms isn't the cure-all the do-gooders claim. Sure, regulate
the unbridled 'sale of the dangerous weapons which hold such
fascination to some- people; but, don't make it illegal to sell
The suggestion that parents should be at least partially held
liable for the actions of teenage youths makes sense to us. It

IT'S COMING INTO THE election season in the City of Port
St. Joe, once 'more. The spring of every year means another mu-
nicipal election and the lack of candidates for this particular
election speaks well for the performance of the current candi-
,dates, who by and large, are a pretty good set of administrators:
i at leastthey have been.in the; past, '
We see no re 6ao to change our mind at this poilitdintime.
The present set of administrators are level-headed people and
we're sure the next group of administrators, whether or not the
same group runs again or we opt for a change or two, they will
likely serve us well. It has been our experience that we don't
have very many future "duds", even qualify for the position,
much less win election.
WHAT WE DO HAVE is a shortage of local citizens to cast
their votes on election day. If we have 50% .of our voters cast
their ballots, then we consider ourselves lucky. At least we have
been thus far, but we can' see Where this situation is a catas-
trophe just begging to happen. Some time, this year or one year
in the future, we're going to elect a real loser-or maybe two-.to
the city commission by not turning out to vote and we'll just
have to live with them for two years by our actions of default.
We shudder at the possibilities for bad things happening eve-
iy time one of our public servants is placed into office, on less
than 25% of the active participation of our electors. arid it
could happen! .
WE HOPE YOU BEGIN MAKING plans.,' even today, to set
aside election day in Port St. Joe this year as a day you intend to
become more active in deciding who will govern our city during
this time. of transition. We need some serious decisions to be
made in the next couple of years and the assurance of having a
continuity of level-headed men to make these decisions.

WELL, WHAT DO you know
We had an entire week of sun-

weeks of rain at least every other
day, it was a relief to have so
much sunshine .. so many days
.in a row.
I'll bet the folks suffering
from the flood waters were both
relieved and grateful.
After living with floods and -
threats of floods for at least a
month, having that dreaded ex-

the face, it must have been re-

OUR COUNTY EMS depart-

Wells and company started using
the high water mark of 1994, but
had to shift gears when it became
evident the floods of 1998 would
eclipse those of 1994.
That's a mighty drastic mark
to measure by. When we moved

f'eced Gulf County? The answer
to this question Is, Yes! We just
notice it so much because before
the days of flood insurance, the
few folks who built along the river
put their houses on stilts.
Now, tne periodic floods ate
disasters because more and more
people are building as near as
they can get to the water's edge.
The waterfront communities are
getting as populated as some in-
corporated areas within the
county. This is borne out by the
fact that there were over 600
homes affected by ,this year's
flood. The river and creek beds
are becoming crowded!
Before the state began insist-
ing that housing follow a mini-
mum height in order to prevent
catastrophic damage in order for
a community .to be eligible. for
flood insurance, it was almost im-
possible to sell a piece of property
in a low-lying area, such as a riv-
er or creek bank. Now, it is con-
sidered prime property!

Nowhere does the gardener
gamble more than when deciding
"when's the best time to plant a
garden?" On the one hand, we
desire to have vegetables planted
by the earliest possible date to
beat that onslaught of summer
pests. Onthe other, we can't plant-
so early as to lose our crop to late
freezes. Between March 1 and
March 15 is considered the target
date-but who could plant then?
Two critical thiings to a suc-
cessful spring garden are good
drainage and plenty of sun. The
latter should be addressed by
locating a garden where it
receives sun by at least 9:00 a.m.'
This ensures -early warm-up of
soil each morning, which is what
alerts vegetables that spring has
arrived. Morning shade delays the
spring garden and makes early

Trees play important roles in
Florida's cities and urban areas
by creating shade, providing
wildlife habitat and adding natur-
al beauty to the landscape.
Hurricanes, tropical storms,. .,
and common thunderstorms can
uproot or break apart trees that
have been neglected or improper-
ly pruned. Proper maintenance,
plays a vital role in protecting
Florida's "urban forest" by
improving the trees' health,
reducing the homeowner's liabili-
ty, and enhancing the value and
overall aesthetics of the property.
Correctly pruning a; tree is a
,complex process requiring train-
ing and experience. Many home-
'owners are able to correctly trim
low-hanging branches or palm
fronds with hand tools. Most
pruning, however, should be done
by a professional arborist.

MEDITATIONS OF A
By LOWELL F. ADAMS
Jesus Gives Us
NEW COMMANDMENT I give unto you, That you
love one another, as I have loved you, that you also love one
another." John 13:34.
"On these two commandments hang all the law and the
prophets." Matthew 22:40"
As Christians, you and I live under a different covenant
than did the people of the Old Testament, as explained in,
* Colossians, Chapter 2. Verse 14 tells us that the ordinances or
law, was taken away, being nailed to the cross of Christ. When,
Jesus was crucified and arose from the dead, He established a
;New Covenant between believers and the Heavenly Father.
. Now we are saved by the Grace of God, through Faith in Jesus,.
rather than by obeying ordinances and laws.
Does this mean we are not expected to live "right"?
Not at all, but this is where Love comes in. When we are
born again through exercising our faith in Jesus as our Savior,
we become a new creation. The love of God becomes a reality,
:and we fir4d ourselves wanting to reveal to others that same
love.. Roman 13:10 says "Love worketh no ill to his neighbor:.
therefore love is the fulfilling of the law."
If every person on earth would let real love motivate their
every association with others, we would be living in heaven on
earth. It is sad that we have impaired the word love. by referring
to sexual activity as "making love". That is not love.
Gift giving is good only if given in love. Sympathetic
benevolence is good, only if extended inlove. Love suffers long
and is always kind. Love does not boast or brag. Love does not
behave in hurtful or embarrassing ways. Love does not engage in
iniquity, but always embraces Truth. Love bears up under all
difficulties and never fails. When we love others, we always
desire the very best for them.
cl God is Love. His Love gave us His Son. Jesus. In rnm,
Jesus loved us. and gave himself as a ransom for all our sins.
In other words, Love is the fulfilling of every law of God.
the Heavenly Father. When we accept Jesus, we are born to love
God and each other. fulfilling our Savior's only commandment.
May we look to Jesus, and learn to love others.

If we would think, before we speak, we
might even gain a friend.

man's religion is vain.

Dear Counselor:, ....
My girlfriend goes out and
parties too much! In fact, that is
how we met one year ago. I used
to really be into going out every'
night. But now, I've really come to
have some strong feelings for my
girlfriend (in fact, we're engaged).
SMy:, girlfriend has a young
child from another marriage, and
* it seems like she wants me to take
all the responsibility for this child,
take care of the house. work. and
accept her lifestyle. We have had
several major fights about this,
but never get it straight. How can
we work this out?
Puzzled in Wewa
First, a relationship that is
going to go anywhere takes the
commitment of two people willing
to be responsible. Second, any-
time one partner changes from
what was once a.mutually accept-
ed lifestyle for both partners, good'
or bad,-there will be some stress
on. the relationship.
It sounds like you'havemade
some positive changes in your life,
and are willing to commit to both
her and her young child. However,
if your fiance is not willing to
make some -easonable' lifestyle
changes the outlook for your con-
tinued happy relationship is not
A look at both of your expec-
tations would be good. Both part-
ners bring different expectations
into a relationship of their own'
behavior and that of their partner.
What are your expectations of
being engaged to your partner?
When you talk to your fiance do
you make ultimatums, or do you
try to negotiate behavior that both
of you can live with? Since your
fiance obviously enjoys the party
lifestyle, it is doubtful that you
can reasonably expect her to com-
Assuming you both could
agree on the "ground rules" in
advance. it might be reasonable to
ask her to pick two nights a week
that are "girls' night out" when
she can go out and have. fun. In
return, -she can allow 'you two
nights to do whatever yoif find
enjoyable. In doing this, you allow
for .mutual freedom, without
expecting too much change.
It may be helpful to go to cou-
ples counseling. A counselor can
be an objective third party who
can see both sides and make
helpful suggestions that might
improve the quality of your rela-

"It has a voracious appetite
and, since its arrival, the flathead
population has increased capri-

tem," Dobbins pointed out.
Today. 20 to 30 pound flat-

Despite its bad qualities, the

"Any angler with nothing

He went on to say that the
flathead is an ambush predator
that prefers dark spots, just out of
a river's main current where they
can lay in wait for prey.
Look for deep pools where the
current isn't too swift, Dobbins
continued. "Potholes or slight
depressions in river bottoms
afford excellent hideouts for flat-

"Often times, a change in
depth of no more than two feet is
enough to attract large fish."
Foqr bait, Dobbins suggests
using either live or fresh dead

sunfish, golden shiner, small cat-
fish and crayfish.

use a two to four ounce egg sinker

Flatheads feed most actively
between April and November,
tending to become somewhat
more dormant than native catfish
species in colder water. Spawning
typically occurs in June and July.

ative impact on our native fishery,
Dobbins and other members of
the scientific community could
care less if we all trekked to the

Wells Reports On El Ninios Power to Rotary
"We Knew It Was Coming As Early
as January, So It Wasn't a Surprise"
I Emergency Management Di-
rector Larry Wells gave an El Nifio
report to the Rotary Club last
Thursday, at their noon meeting,
calling it the biggest 'happening'
since the floods of 1929, causing
the never system to rampage out
of its banks and inundate thou-
sands of acres.
'We began talking about this,
storm system back in January
when the National Weather Sys-
tem alerted us to the unusual
weather conditions approaching
which would bring unusually
high water levels," Wells said.
"So. you can't say this was a
great surprise to us."
It was, indeed, the storm ,of
the century when you consider'
the amount of damage it caused
and the people it affected.
; "It was an unusual situation, .
also, because of the river levels
which were reported," Wells said.
"The Chipola Rivef posted higher
levels than the Apalachicola River
did. The first surge brought the
level of the Chipola about 1.5 feet
higher than 1994 and the Apa-
lachicola was .2 of a foot lower
than its 1994 levels. Both rivers
set new level records before the
floods were over," he reported.
S Wells reported water levels of
eight to ten inches higher in the
Howard Creek area, than they,
;, reached in 1994.
He reported that there were
over 600 homes impacted by
flood waters in Gulf County,.
alone. The national agency
known as FEMA. sets the levels
water must reach to cause minor,
average and destroyed levels of a
home. Wells said the 'destroyed'
SleVel is if water reaches a waist-
high level inside the home.
Using this yardstick. Wells
Reported there were 39 homes to-
tally destroyed in this year's
Flood waters reached a level
'of 29 feet in the Chipola and 28.6
feet in the Apalachicola rivers.

Stephanie said. So they went,
inside for a drink. "Want some?"'.

Yeah, you heard right, smok-

why smoking isn't cool? I'll tell
you why! Smoking causes seri-

your face. You'll really get a whiff

Smoking is 'not cool,
because it is very deadly, and
harmful to your body. Just
because you see your brother or
sister smoking, it doesn't mean
you have to.
Don't let anybody pressure
you to start smoking. For exam-
ple, what if a boy came up to you
and said to you, "Do you want a
smoke?" Then you start think-
ing about it. Then they start to
say it makes you look grown up.

appear to be nearly new. We keep
them in the office for weeks, mak-

to claim them, and eventually we
turn them ovei to churches to
distribute so someone can benefit

released at 12 noon to begin a
week-long vacation called "Spring

served, and, no lunch break
between classes. Students should
have no difficulty waiting until
they get home to eat.
It seems, however, that some
students have already begun their
break, as several teachers have
commented that many students
in their classes have gone on
cruise control, literally doing no
work in class. Of course, they
can't understand why they are

Step one-pray for them. Step.
two-care for them. Step three--
help them in any way. Step four-
cook for them. Step Jive and the
most important one-be kind and
nice and do stuff for them. Step
six-help them move their stuff.
Step seven-last one-help them
move back in their house."'.
