Employees for Apalachi-

cast into an air of uncertain-
ty last week when St. Joe
Corporation CEO Peter
Rummell reportedly said he
will explore the possible sale

In a recent article in the

sible sale as one of several
items on his drawing board
for St. Joe Corporation. The
article stated that analysts'
value ANRR at $31 to $35
million.
ANRR hauls freight on its
96 miles of track originating
at Port St. Joe and extend-
ing through Apala-chicola to
Chattahoochee.
During a phone conversa-

Ray, he stated that Mr.
Rummell's answers need to
be taken In context. with the
overall article.
"We're still evaluating St.-

Issues that require each of us to

Chato Sale


duPont Presence' Fading

THE STATELY, MULTI-STORIED house which stands at the
confluence of U., S. Highways 98 and 71, which silently told of
the presence of the duPont interests in Pqrt St. Joe, has finally
ended its purpose and is winding up as a "Bed and Breakfast'
hostelry in our town. After more than half a century as. a bed-
ding place for industrial giants with more than a little state-wide
clout, it is being converted to a comfortable bed and a free
breakfast for the travelling public with one stroke of the pen.
It's quite an ignominious end for,a dwelling 'of such impor-
tance, housing the movers and shakers on their occasional visits
to Port St. Joe to discuss crucial business matters and be able
to relax in relative comfort after their day is done.
THE "CHATO" WAS AS MUCH a part of the duPont family
as Miss Jessie'Ball duPont, 'herself. who spent many nights in
the handsome dwelling which stands on the edge of downtown
Port St. Joe and Is the first impression travellers had of Port St.
Joe, as they passed by on their way to destinations unknown.
The grounds keepers always kept the place immaculate with
every blade of grass clipped, every piece of trash picked up, and
maintained that fresh-painted look for the building itself. For
many years, a unique willow tree stood, or rather, laid, in the
-front yard, as alwitness to the uniqueness and elegance of the
structure. .
Nearly every' resident of the city lusted after the "Chato" as
their own dwelling place; the pattern for their own dream'home.:
NOW, THE LAST AND most visible vestige of the duPohit
presence in Port St. Joe has changed hands during the past
week after nearly two months of rumors of the pending sale.
Oh, the Apalachicola Northern Railroad still attests to the
duPont presence, but the family merely rescued it from the
bankruptcy which engulfed so many firms during the great de-
pression. The family merely bought it as a matter of their con-.
venience, and financially nursed it back to health. However, it
too, has been placed on the sale block and will more than likely
eradicate the duPont presence here.
The "Chato", proud old lady that she has been, more than
any other entity formerly owned by the duPont family, does away
with the family's visible presence more than the sale of any other
single property.



"Worm Has Turned

: THE JAPANESE. IN THE midst of a cash crunch of their
own after several years-even decades-of attempting to buy up
;every property in the world and an attempt to take over the'
world-wide electronics and automobile industries, have asked
the United States for help with the relationship between the yen
and the 'dollar.' '
That famous Japanese inscrutability has cracked and de-
. cleared jtust-:how.far, it can be stretched; Like the American in-
scrutability, its limits stop where the breakdown of the currency -
begins. As long as tihe Japahiese'industrial 'machine was riding
high, they were hard to deal with on any terms except the ones
they set down. Now, the shoe is on the.other foot and is begin-,
Srinng to pinch a little.
Japan Is now asking for fiscal cooperation where none exist-
ed before. They have asked for assistance from a nation which
has seemingly been their economic victim. calling the shots for-
',quite a long while. But, like that fertilizer, so famous in the
south, the small nation wasn't good for the "quick kick with the
long pull." Japan has proven to be only good for the quick kick
and has to depend on the cooperation of others for that long
Spull.
THE UNITED STATES CONTRIBUTED to' even that quick
: kick mentality by slacking .up on its quality and its productivity.
But, the experience of the last few years has shown that the old
girl isn't dead yet. The yankee trader and production expertise
hasn't vanished. If we put our minds to it. we can survive the
best efforts of anyone; even Japan.
The Japanese paid scant attention to our suggestions to par-
ity of trade or'chances -at their market. Just as they had an open ;
opportunity at ours. They ignored our suggestions for an export-
import parity, but insisted on running up huge deficits on our
nation by dumping shiploads of goods on our shores.
Now, they are asking for our help. The worm has turned!

Just Add Liquid
County Commissioner Nathan Peters recently attended a
hurricane conference in Norfolk, Va., where he was apprised
of the survival commodities available, including survival
meals. Peters is shown demonstrating a sample survival
meal-which he brought back with him-to the commission
recently, with Joe Hooper looking on.
With his fellow commissioners kibitzing his demonstra-
tion, Peters showed how the survival meal, which comes sol-
idly frozen is turned into a piping hot meal in just 14 min-
utes.
The contents of the meal is turned upside down, causing
a special liquid to cover the meal itself. During the 14 min-
ute waiting, period, the special liquid causes the meal to
thaw and heat itself to a piping hot repast, which, as Peters
proceeded to demonstrate, is delicious as well as nutritious!
The meals will be made available to areas which have suf-
fered a disastrous storm or other natural or accidental mis-
hap. provided a way can be developed to keep the meal
frozen in case of interrupted power supplies!

The Wewahitchka City Com-
mission adopted a "wait-and-see"
attitude toward its adoption of a
sprayfleld application in its
wastewater disposal process Mon-
day of last week.
The Environmental Protection
Agency prefers the sprayfield ap-
plication for disposal of excess
wastewater but the cost involved
in its installation caused the city
to back off, at least for the time
being.
Presently, the city empties its
treated water into the Chipola
River In the Cochran Landing
area. .- ..
SThe city has a permit for the
constructlbonof a sprayfield appli-
cation which is in effect until the
year 2001, so it isn't imperative
that it act immediately in this
Smatter.

According to city manager Don
Minchew, there wasn't a clear-cut
violation of building regulations,
and. he said. "I could probably
have gone ahead and issued the
permit, but decided, Instead, to
bring it before the commission for
official approval." The miniscule
violation of the rules was that
possibly the density exceededed the
allowable Impact by three-tenths

The variance was unani-
mously approved.
Another new construction
permit was tentatively approved
for Dollar General to build a new

would be located just north of

The new building is not af-
firmed, as yet. as the owners are
still in the permitting process.

GPH Wants Help to ID Positive Employees


Gulf Pines Hospital is
requesting all residents of Gulf
County to assist the hospital in
helping'to identify those employ-
ees of the hospital who, by virtue
of their professional skills, their
positive attitudes, and their car-
ing interactions with others, have
,made a significant, positive differ-
ence in the lives of those people
'for whom they provide health
care..
This initiative is a part of the
hospital's newly established
"Employee Recognition Program"
which is intended to help identify,
recognize and reward the many
"unsui heroes" in our


community who put the "caring in
health care."
Any member of the general
public can nominate an employee
of the hospital for consideration
for this special recognition by
telephone (850-227-1121, Ext.
105) or by letter (to the Gulf Pines
Hospital Administrator, 102 20th
Street, Port St. Joe, FL, 32456).
Some of the qualities being
looked for include:
*An employee who consistent-
ly tries to do an exceptional job
within his or her area of responsi-
bility;


*An employee who consistent-
ly displays a positive and caring
attitude toward his or her work,
toward those people with whom
he or she comes into daily 'con-
tact, and toward life in general; or
*An employee who can and
should be recognized as a role
model for all employees of the
hospital and for the community at

'VFW Encourages Volunteerism


The Veterans of Foreign Wars
of the United, States is proud to
join Americans across the nation
in the celebration of National Vol-
unteer Week, sponsored by The
Points' of Light Foundation, dur-
ing the week of April 19 to 25.
The social problems that
many communities are now fac-
ing are widespread, spanning the-
nation and affecting everyone.
Most Americans, however, have
never truly considered what they
could do to help remedy those
problems. Most have never truly
considered the incredible impact
that they could have on the life of
an at-risk teen, a neglected child,
an illiterate adult, or a lonely sen-
ior citizen.
This is why the nation cele-
brates National Volunteer Week.
It promotes public awareness
about the many opportunities for
volunteer work that still exist,
and it honors the 93 million peo-
ple who have volunteered their
time and their resources in an ef-
fort to make someone else's life a;
little brighter and a little better. .
Volunteers represent hope in
their communities. Their phe-
nomenal efforts help to insure a
better future not only for their,
own communities but also for the
nation as a whole.
John Moon, the Commander-
in-Chief of the 2.1 million mem-
bers of the. Veterans of Foreign
Wars of the United States, urges
all Americans to join the swelling
ranks of one of .the country's
most valuable natural resources,
its volunteers. Members of the
VFW and Ladies Auxiliary annua-
ly participate in millions of hours
of community service projects
and: volunteer work. The local
branch is'no exception.
The members of the John C.
Gainous VFW Post #10069 have
taken part in many volunteer pro-
jects here in the community.
They provided assistance in the:
July 4th celebration held in
Frank Pate Park, sponsored a
Voice of Democracy contest at the
local schools, hosted a Halloween
party for the residents of the Bay
St. Joseph Care Center and tilled
up the residents' garden.
In addition to this, they ini-
tiated a Christmas Card drive for
the soldiers 'then stationed in
.Bosnia, at. the local elementary
schools, giving the children an
opportunity not only to have fun
making the cards, but also to do
something worthwhile for some-
one else. Recently, the members
of the post donated and cooked
food for the flood victims at Ho-
ward Creek. --
They also had a Veterans Day
service at the Court House and

HorseLiniment
Eases Arthritis
Pain
OCALA, FL -- An ingredient derived'
from hotpeppers that decreases inflamma-
tion in racehorse's legs, is now recognized,
as safe and effective for human use. The
ingredient has been formulated into aprod-
S lict called ARTH-Rx" and comes in a
strength designed for humans. Research-
ers are excited and say the formula can
relieve arthritis pain for millions.
.) Developed by the Phillips Gulf Corpo-
ration, ARTH-Rx is a breakthrough in the
treatment ofpainfuldisordersrangingfrom
minor aches and pains to more serious
conditions such as anhritis, bursitis, rheu-
matism, tendonius, backacheand more
Although the mechanism by which
ARTH-R, vorks to reliee pain is not
totally clear, scientistssuggest that pain is
relief edbecauseARTH-R\ intercepts the
messenger substance that sends,pain sig-
nals to the brain. '-
ARTH-Rx is available in a convenient
roll-on applicatorwithout prescription.
According to a spokesperson for the com-
pany, due to the overwhelming demand for
ART H-Rx, supplies are sometimes lim-
ited. ARTH-Rx can also be ordered by
calling 1-800-729-8446. 1997PGC

participated in a ceremony at Port
St Joe High School honoring the
community's veterans.
Volunteer work is a big part
of patriotism. But volunteering is
not the only way to be patriotic.
On May 1, the country will ob-
serve Loyalty Day, a clay dedicat-
ed to reaffirming one's loyalty to
the U.S. A. and allegiance to its
flag. VFW Post #10069 will be
holding a Loyalty Day celebration
at the VFW Post Home on May 1.
The guest speaker for the event


will be Sgt. Gary Howze, the asso-
ciate naval science instructor of
the NJROTC at Port St. Joe High
School.
However, this day does not
belong to the VFW and to vete-
rans alone; it belongs to every
American everywhere. Show your
patriotism by volunteering and by
becoming a part of Loyalty Day.
Let the world know that. Ameri-
cans are proud to stand behind
their country. Fly your flag with
pride on May 1.

United Methodist Church
I am not ashamed of the
gospel. Therefore, I let the world know that I belong
to Christ. Jesus Is my personal saviour, and I shall
never deny this.
The secular world has many claims on -s;, but,
our first priority is spiritual. Christ died upon the
cross for our sins. No one else can give this to us. We
cannot earn salvation. It is a gift from God through
Jesus Christ who bore our sins upon the cross of
calvary. Let us tell the world of His great love.



MEDITATIONS OF A
( tunrtry 3lreacl er

By LOWELL F. ADAMS
Troubled Waters
When I tread on troubled waters i
And my faith begins to ublane,
With His help I'll rise above it,
He is with me, praise His name.
(From a poem by .41bert Theell


HE BEAUTIFUL LINES ABOVE are the lead lines in
a poem by Albert N. Theel, published in the Salesian Missions
booklet, Quiet Times.
-Life in this sinful and troubled world is precarious and
uncertain at best. At times when troubles crowd out our joyful
hope, leaving us wondering if God has forsaken us, we need only
lean a bit more confidently upon God's promises.
He has promised us. in Deuteronomy 31:6, "'The Lord, thy
God, He it is that goeth with thee; he will not fail thee nor forsake
thee." This solemn promise.is repeated in the New Testament. in
Hebrews 13:5. There is absolutely no trouble a Child of God may
experience that God can not aind will not take care of. Romans
8:28 assures us that "All things iork together for GOOD 't o
them that love God."
Joseph was a favorite ,yld of his father. Jacob, but his
brothers did not like him. lntthe 37th chapter of Genesis the
account of his troubles is recorded. His older brothers first
planned to kill him, but decided, instead to sell him into slavery.
He wound up in Egypt as a slave, And even spent a long while in
an Egyptian prison. But God was with him through it all. He
eventually became ruler of Egypt. under Pharaoh and was used of
God to save not only Egypt. but his family in Canaan as well,
including his mean older brothers.
Satan makes sure troubles will come to all of us in time,
especially to those who claim God as their Heavenly Father. But
we can know for certain, that if we just wait upon Him', God will
surely turn our troubles into blessings.
Bereavement (death of a loved one) is one of life's most
distressingly tragic experiences.. It is difficult for us to accept, ibut
God comforts us with assurances that our loved ones are in a
much better place, and we will be reunited with them in due time.
Those who trust in God will never really die. (John I1:26)
When the affairs of this world cloud out and obliterate the
Sunshine of God's Love. His Word is our guarantee that
tomorrow will be better. He w%... never forsake those who are His.
God's Word was "written foir or comfort and knowledge ... that
we could have hope in a better tomorrow." (Romans 15:4).

In 1989; scientists funded by

In 1990. just one year after this
discovery, researchers corrected
defective CF cells in laborIttory
dishes, the first step toward uisinr
gene therapy as a treatment for
cystic fibrosis.

.donating funds and actively par-
:3ticipating. only then will we be
able to find a cure for cystic fibro-
sis. the number one genetic killer
of children and youne adults in
the U.S. today. The developments
dunng the last decade demon-
strate how the pace of research

how we can help make CF history
by raising much-needed dollars
for research." added Williams.
Everyone can be a winner!
She continued by saying.

Sealant -Decay


The natural grooves in a
tooth, particularly molars,
have a tendency to become
packed with food debris and
acid-forming bacteria-
leading to decay. For years
dentists have tried to limit
this destruction by filling the
groove as soon as any
destruction was evident.
This is a good restorative
measure, but it has the
drawback of removing some
tooth structure.
A newer. method which
has been developed
involves sealing the grooves
with a plastic paint to pre-
vent acid from attacking the
tooth. As far as the patient is
concerned, the application


Prevention


of a pit and fissure sealant is
quick, painless, and a rela-
tively small investment.
Sealants are almost 100
percent effective, and there
is 'almost no tooth structure
removed.
:It is really a simple pro-
cedure, but one which must
be done with care. Properly-
cleaning- and conditioning
the teeth before applying
the sealant is extremely
important and requires
meticulous technique.

mote better dental health. From the

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 1998 PAGI


Florida Geological Survey (FGS) scientists pull a sediment
core near Pig Island, St. Joseph's Bay, October 1997.



Hunting Source



of Bay Water

Determining Protection and
Management System Needs


Those of us who live around
here have come to accept the fact
that St. Joseph Bay is the most
studied,bay around. Nearly every
environmental and ecological or-
ganization or, group around has
done, or plans to do, a study of
the bay and the pristine condition
of its waters.
It's almost as if these envlron-
mental groups can't believe their
eyes when they study the results
of their experiments when con-
ducted in St. Joseph Bay.
Currently. another group of
scientists is making a year-long
study of the bay, including its ec-
osystem of water, and other sedi-
ment, which is introduced daily,
to the bay. The experiments
should show how much of what
ingredient finds its way into the
bay and does its balance harm or
enhance the waters to make it the
pristine water that it is.
J...Just how--much attention
4 does it need to maintain these
conditions?

NATURAL SYSTEMS NEED
PROTECTION'
Natural systems must be pre-
served and protected if they are to
be available for long-term use and
enjoyment by local communities
and tourists. Adequate protection
can only be assured if the dynam-
ics and processes essential to the
system's function and integrity,
are weU understood.
It is with this objective in
mind that a group of scientists
have begun an effort to study, the
St. Joseph Bay ecosystem. This
study involves not only the sur-
face water, but the other compo-,
nents of the system as well which
includes soil, ground water and
sediments.
Only by knowing how the
parts of the system interact can
we determine an appropriate
course of action to protect the
system as a whole .
The study group, led by
Dr. Rodney DeHan of the
Florida Geological Survey
(FGS), is partially funded by a
grant from the U. S.
Environmental Protection
Agency. Other scientists from
Florida State University (FSU)
and: the U. S. Geological
Survey (USGS) have also
joined the research team
which now .includes geolo-
gists, hydrologists, geo-
chemists and oceanographers.

Using research vessels
anchored at the statepark, the
FGS scientists have been collect-
ing sediment cores. Another part
of the study involves criss-cross-
ing the bay towing seismic instru-
ments which are used to map the


Laboratory analysis of the
resulting data will provide the
team with essential information
about the composition and age of
bay sediments and the relation-
ship of the ground water aquifer
to the surface water of the bay.
Mapping the physical
boundaries of the aquifer's
connection to the bay is an
important step in determin-
ing the quantity and quality
of the fresh, ground water
seeping into the bottom of
the bay.

Ground water may have pro-
found effects on the current
health and long term sustainabil-
ity of the bay's vegetation and fish
and shellfish populations. For
example, very saline conditions
are thought to be necessary for
scallop production.

SOURCES OF FRESH WATER
IDENTIFIED
Prior to this study, it was
thought that the only fresh water
inflow large enough to affect the
bay's salinity and water quality
was the Gulf County Canal.
However, some scientists think
that groundwater seepage may
play a much larger role than pre-
viously suspected.
Measurement of ground water
seepage into the bay is the
responsibility of the oceanogra-
phers on the study team. Faculty
members and graduate students
from the FSU Department of
Oceanography have installed
"seepage meters" In strategic loca-
tions on the bay's bottom In order
to measure the fresh water com-
ing from this source.

Future plans involve the
analysis of the quality in
addition to the quantity of:
the seeping water and how
that changes with tidal and
seasonal changes.
Finally. the degree of mixing
of the bay's waters with waters of
the Gulf of Mexico, is being mea-
sured by USGS members of the
study team. This phase of the
research, coupled with surface
and ground water information will
be used to determine how well
and how fast discharges into the
bay (canal input or groundwater
seepage) can be diluted, or
flushed out.
The study's ultimate goal
is to provide citizens and
elected officials with the sci-
entific information to help
them in making decisions to
better manage and protect
this priceless resource for
generations to come.

BEST FOOT FORWARD
By: Dr. Stephen J. Gross, Podiatrist


ORTHOTICS IN WIDE USE
If shoes were transparent. you
might be surprised to see how many,
prople are benefitting from orthoUc
inserts. These slim devices, cus-,
tomized to meet Individual needs,.
help people stand, walk or run more
efficiently and comfortably.
Orthotics are- fabricated to meet
specific needs after the podiatrist
evaluates the. individual's foot prob-
lems. There are two principal types:
Rigid orthotics are used to con-
trol the way the foot functions. Made
of leather, metal or synthetics, they
improve abnormal motion of major
foot joints and slip easily into regular
shoes.
S*eSf' orthotics absorb shock and


take pressure
off uncomfort-
,able areas or
sore spots.
Other or-
thotics Include semi-rigid types,
which can be. customized to meet
the demands of different sports. In
many cases,,' orthotics are the

TOBACCO TALK
Lots of people say, "I'll quit when I'm older." H chances are
you won't. And it gets harder and harder each month you wait.
Smoking is an addletion. It alters your body chemistry so that
you begin to crave cigarettes. Askanyone who's tried to quit;
it's very hard, and most people fail.

Example. One man chained himself o 'a 280-pound
sofa for three weeks to quit smoking.


Michael Griffin, 4th grdde FCS


Lindsey Dimitrijevich,

Jana Traylor, age. 12 lW'HS


-TOBACCO TALK
People who are HRV-positive are nearly twice as
likely to develop AIDS if they smoke, according to a
56-month study conducted at the University of
California at Berkeley of 1, 990 IFV-positive men. This
stands to reason: tobacco addiction lowers your resis-
tance to disease.

believed smoking wasn't harmful.

A FEW PARTING PUFFS
bacco addiction kills many Americans each year. The only replace-
nt smokers out there are children, because adults who don't smoke
n't going to start. We must stop tobacco companies from deceiving
dren into addiction. Cancer-causing, addictive drugs should be sold
as such, with larger warnings to protect buyers.

," April is almost over,' and as'
usual everything is. a little hectic.
No matter howhard-we,>try to
avoid conflicts, they invariably
arise.
For example, the regional
track finals (hosted by St Joe HS,
but to be held at Florida State's
Track) is scheduled for April 30
(Thursday). District finals for,
baseball (hosted by Blountstown
HS) and softball (hosted by St. Joe
HS) are also on-you guessed it- .
April 30.
The problem is, in small
schools sometimes players com-
.pete in more than one sport. Of
course, they can't do both at one
time. but if dates can accommo-
date both. why shouldn't an ath-
lete be able to participate in both
sports. We preach' "be the best
you can"- we need to make, every
effort to allow it to happen.
To change the dates of. the
finals means all three schools in
the .district (Wewa, St. Joe, &
Blountstown) would have to agree

School To Work Conference

truly appreciated.
One of the sessions our staff
found enjoyable was, "School is

get paid for going to school, but
they are working toward a lifetime
of productivity. This was the first
time our school attended the con-
ference and hopefully not the last.
"Now Wasn't That Nice?"
Friday morning there was no,
coffee in the lounge or office. At
WES, there are about six staff
members who drink a cup of cof-
fee in the morning.
As I passed Mr. Wooten on the
sidewalk, I kiddingly said, "Mr.
Wooten, there is no coffee. I guess
you'll have to go get some!" He
just laughed. In several minutes
as I was doing math, I looked up
and saw Mr. Wooten holding a lit-
tle carafe of coffee. As I went to
the door, I told the children to
clap and they did, Justin Wood
said, "Now wasn't that nice of Mr.
Wooten." It sure was.
Freightlin Cox Is The

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 1998 PAGE 5B



Citizens Federal Supporter of Gulf's Youth


Through Continued Its Participation In County's Scholarship Program)


FEBRUARY 19, 1998
The Gulf County School Board met in
special session on February 19, 1998, at
4:30 P.M., ET, In the Gulf County School
Board Administrative Offices in Port St.
Joe. The following members were present:
Charlotte Pierce, Caroline Norton, David
Byrd, Mary Pridgeon, and Oscar Redd. The
Superintendent and Board Attorney were
also present.
Chairman Pierce presided, and the
meeting was opened with an invocation by
Mrs. Norton, followed by, the Pledge of
Allegiance led by Mr. Byrd.
PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING
SETTLEMENT OF NEGOTIATIONS
IMPASSE: A public hearing was held to'
hear relevant discussions concerning the
Special Master's recommendations. The
Chief Executive Officer, Superintendent
Jerry E. Kelley, recommended the Board
reject the Special Master's recommenda-
tions. The Board recessed until Tuesday,
February 24, 1998 at 4:30 P.M. ET.
FEBRUARY 24, 1998
(These minutes reflect individual
remarks due to request of Board mem-
bers.)
The Gulf County School Board recon-
vened In special' session on February 24,
1998, scheduled for 4:30 P.M., in the Gulf
County Administrative Offices In Port St.
Joe. The following members were present:
Charlotte Pierce, Caroline Norton, David
Byrd, Mary Pridgeon, and Oscar Redd. The
Superintendent and Board Attorney were
also present.
Chairman Pierce presided. Mrs.
Pridgeorn gave an invocation, which was
followed by the Pledge of Allegiance led by
Mr. Redd.
Mrs. Pierce advised that the purpose
of the meeting was to vote on the issue of
the Superintendent's recommendation
regarding teachers' salaries, which was to
reject the Special Master's recommenda-
tion.
On motion by Mrs. Norton, second by
Mrs. Pridgeon, the Board rejected the
Superintendent's recommendation by
accepting the Special Master s recommen-
dation with the following vote- Norton,
Pndgeon. and Byrl voted to accept the
Special Master's recommendauon. Pierce
and Redd voted WAY to accepting the
Special Master's recommendation.
It was requested that" the following
remarks be reflected in the minutes.
Mrs. Norton: "I would like to make a
mouton that we accept the special masters
recommendation. I make this motion for
several reasons. Why have a special mas-
ter if we are not going to follow the recom-
mendation. We were told that we would be
approximately S350.000 in arrears by the
end of this school year. So far as I am cn-,
cerned, it would not make that much dif-'
ference to add S38.000 to that. That would
be' approximately $388,000 and we can
give the teachers the raise that was rec-
ommended. It would not cost a great deal
more than going to court as we've been
told will happen if we do not go along with
this report (with his recommendation) So
for these reasons, and one more. I have
been told there Is no guarantee, but there
is a very good chance that we will get help
from the state So I feel we need to help
our teachers who need it so desperately.'
Mrs. Pridgeon: "I second It, and I feel
that we've sat up here and said all along
thati.we ivant to do what's best-for'klds and'
4 I don't know anything lhat affects the chil-
dren or the students any more than
teacher morale, and I know that we have
cut teachers and expected more of them.
We've cut school based administrators. We
have not cut district level administrators.
as a matter of fact. this year we added an
administrator at a salary that more than
offsets the cost of Implementing this pay
raise this year. I just feel like we can look
some other places to cut. So that s the rea-
son for my second for this motion."
Mrs. Pierce: "I have a duty to the pub.
lic which includes the students, and the
taxpayers outside of this system. If I heard
correctly Thursday that we will have to
borrow money, we will be paying tax. not
tax. excuse me. interest on that money. I
think It s ver" poor judgement to go out
and borrow money to make payroll and I've
never known a successful business to bor-
row money to make payroll I cannot vote
to pay any more than the school board can
offer. The vote of the chair is no. Hopefully
the Florida Coast tax challenge will be
resolved in the near future and the
Superintendent can go back to the table
and give the teachers what they deserve."
Superintendent Kelley:' "I'd like to,
make a statement, please. Please let the
record reflect my position on this matter.
As CEO of the Gulf County School System,
I could not and cannot, in good faith, rec-
ommend a salary' schedule change that
would, by action intentionaIly require the
school district to indebt itself further for
current year operations."
,. The Board chairman directed -the
Superintendent to draft a written agree-,
ment that represented the direction of the
Board.
There being no further business, the
meeting adjourned.

Crop Insurance Prevented Planting

Update From Farm Service Agency


Improved prevented planting
coverage That's the word from
the Calhoun, Liberty, Gulf, and
Franklin Farm Service Agency, a
division of the United States
Department of Agriculture.
Coverage for coarse grains,
small grains, dry beans, and sun-
flowers has increased from 50 to
60 percent of yield guarantee with
option for farmers to increase
their prevented planting coverage
to 65 or 70 percent.
Upland cotton, ELS cotton,
sugar beets, .onions and rice poli-
cles have increased from 35 t6o45


percent with option to increase
prevented planting coverage to 50
or 55 percent. Farmers will now
be paid on a per-acre basis for
acreage they were prevented from
planting. Substitute crops are no
longer allowed, except for cover
crops that will not be harvested.

Possible prevented planting
losses must be reported by the
acreage reporting date. Farmers
need to contact their crop insur-
ance agents to learn about other
