St. Joe Timberland to Develop Canal Bank


To Expand Pulpwood Business by Water As Far Away As
oe o eue rnpotto


St. Joe Timberland Company
(Woodlands Division of the St. Joe
Company) is making plans to
maximize the company's wood
marketing potential in the area by
constructing a barge docking
facility along the Gulf County
Canal, between the Dynamite
Dock and the mouth of the canal'.
Clay Smallwood, Vice
President of St. Joe Timberland
Company, said they are currently
applying for the necessary per-
_m.'t and....see. ktng .a-smaI.'.. eale


map amendment to Gulf County's
Comprehensive Plan before con-
struction can get underway.
The project will consist of
approximately 400 feet of
bulkhead or barge tie down
areas and loading dock. An
existing access road will also
be graded and lime rock
added to stabilize the
roadbed..

, .. ..Smaja said the company


hoped to reduce transportation
costs by shipping via barge, thus
opening up market areas to the
west along the Intracoastal
Waterway and the connected
riverways.'
He mentioned the western
end of. Florida. as well as
Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana.
and even Tennessee as some of
the possible market areas that
might open up.

barge dock should be in oper-
ation by the end of this year.
Current plans call for pulp-
wood to be the major item
barged from the site, but mar-
ket demand could include
wood chips in the future.
Smallwood said.
*St. Joe hopes this venture
will help stimulate port activity in
the area and that they (St. Joe)
can possibly be of some future
assistance to other ventures in
the area," he added.

Garbage



Expense

Near Break Even
Poin Last Year
Port S.Jioe city commission-
ers heard : ne good news con-
cerning th city's garbage collec-
tion servi during a workshop,
session hej Just prior to their
regular meeting Tuesday evening.
Public. Works Superintendent
Frank HeaJY reviewed garbage col-
lection re lpts and expenses.
showing co mmissioners the com-
bination effort of recycling and
conventional disbursement of
garbage was working very well in
the city. .
It cost 8418,237 to collect
and dispose of Port St. Joe's
garbage over the last year of ser-
vice, while 8407,906 was collect-
ed from residential and commer-
cial users.
"We missed breaking even in
garbage collection by S10.331."
Healy told the board.
This was good news to city
commissioners. They have kept a
watchful eye on garbage collection
over the past year as they consid-
ered the feasibility of the city
remaining in the collection busi-
ness or contracting the service
out.
Healy pointed out to board
members that a survey of similar
commupities'- offering' .the .same
twice per week pick-up as Port St.
Joe indicates the city is approxi-
mately 83 per month under the
average residential pick-up fee of
817.
Commercial rates are another
matter though. Healy said the
same survey indicates the city's
commercial collection rates are
way too low.
Commercial users are
responsible for one-half of the
city's garbage yet pay only one-
third of the bill, Healy told them.
Commissioners and Healy
seemed to agree thiat some
increase to commercial users
would be in line for future consid-
eration.'.
Healy pointed out that the
city's new composting facility
alone should 'get the budget to an
even or better status. More. than
40 tons of garbage have been
pulled for composting thus far
and the project is working real
well, he added.

Fatal Accident Near Mexico Beach


On Sunday, June 15, at 3:00
a.m., CST, Scott Ray Cushman's
vehicle collided with a vehicle be-
ing driven by Livern Hanna Ayers
on SR 30, about 2.3 miles west of
Mexico 'Beach, -resulting in the
death of the passenger in the
front of Cushman's car.
Both vehicles were west-
bound on SR 30 when the acci-
dent occurred. Nineteen year old
Cushman, of Evans, Georgia, was
driving a 1990 utility Jeep at a
high rate of speed when his vehi-
cle struck th4 left rear end of the
1990 Chevrolet station wagon


driven by Ayers, 90, with the
right front end of his vehicle. The
Jeep overturned and came to rest
on its top.
Both of the cars were to-
talled. Cushman and Ayers sus-
tained only minor injuries, but
his passenger, Brandi Lynn Mat-
ney, 17, of Martinez, Georgia, was
pronounced deceased at the
scene.
According to a press release
from the Florida Highway Patrol,
alcohol and/or drugs did play a
part in the accident, and seat-
belts were not in use.


ment.
Bill Kennedy, of Preble-Rish.
Inc., Consulting Engineers, pro-
vided commissioners with a con-
cept of how the property might be
developed for commercial use, as
well as tied into the existing
downtown area.
Both he and City Attorney
Billy Joe Rish said several inter-
ested parties have expressed
some desires to develop portions
of the property. One of the devel-
opments mentioned was the pos-
sibility of a motel being built on
the property.
Rish said he had been
approached by a developer who
expressed serious interest in that
project.
The board will also be finaliz-
ing plans to offer out for bids a
contract for leasing or managing


the marina once it's constructed.
All other property for develop-
ment at the site will also go out for
public bid under an extended


lease agreement. Rish is working
up suggested minimum base bids
for out-parcel development plans
for the board's consideration.

A Need to Know

A JOINT EFFORT TO make sewer collection and treatment
service available to the outlying sections of south Gulf County is
being undertaken as a cooperative effort of both the city and
county.
The advent of sewage collection service, which would be a
welcome service, would also enhance the sale of lots in and
around the beach communities. We just think there has been a
building boom in these areas in the past. With the provision of a
central sewage service, it would really begin to boom. With the
advent of sewage collection, more living units could be sold and
built on more densely populated property. About twice the
present density could reasonably be expected in areas where
building already exists.
.SEWAGE COLLECTION AND TREATMENT is the key to.
density numbers everywhere. Instead of two living units per acre
along the waterfront, the density could feasibly be four units per
acre. It would even mean there could be motels built on the wa-
terfront without the danger of pollution.
Of course, there is a segment of the present population
which does not wish to see more living units allowed per acre,
but they would have no reasons for denying the practice other
than esthetics.
An article in The Star last week pointed out the pending fight
over allowing enough space to build in desirable places, such as
near the water. Squeezing more houses in each acre would solve
that problem for the time being, at least.
PUBLIC HEARINGS ARE needed before officials go any far-
ther, and some idea of how much the homeowner will be expect-
, ed to pay for the service will need be arrived at and sold to the
people.
An example of personal cost can be arrived at by looking at
the position of Mexico Beach. That community has approved a
sewer system to be installed with the knowledge that their indi-
vidual sewer bills will run about a projected $38.00 per month,
building in a more dense situation, but piping the effluent a
greater distance.
The two sewage collection systems are nearly alike, so we
should come to a realistic cost figure comparatively easy. Above
all, this information needs to be given the people at the very first
public hearing.
Sewage collection and treatment is an expensive process,
any way you look at it. The people who are to be affected by any
installation of a system need to know this and a ball-park esti-
mate of what will be expected of them, up front.



Graveyard History

IN ANOTHER LOCATION IN this week's issue of The Star
there is a story about the old cemetery, which served the first
settlement of this location more than 160 years ago. It is fitting
that this cemetery played a major role in the demise of old St.
Joseph those 160 years ago. The advent of the sailing freighter
ringjpg ,crwmembe3;s. here, whop ,ve.re. de.a.. an.d ..dying from
high_ c6iiiageiusyeSllow6 f fevrspllc[d the begrinlhg ofthet-death
knell for what was described as the "New Orleans of the Gulf
Coast". Indeed, it was a rival of old New Orleans in its early
days.
I., With the coming of statehood, old St. Joseph, with its seago-
ing commerce was in an enviable position prior to the coming of
the fever. But, with its coming, the people began to die like flies.
IT HAS BEEN WIDELY believed that the people died at such
a rate that they were buried in trenches outside the old burying
grounds. This was believed so strongly that an archaeology class
from FSU did a 'dig' at the old cemetery, under the direction of
Dr. Hale G. Smith In the mid-60s in an effort to locate these
trenches.
The old cemetery is the source of many stories, with no proof
having been' discovered as to their veracity: It makes for interest-
ing reading,. though. and many strange tales. It is located on
some of the highest ground around Port St. Joe, or old St. Jo-
seph. It has been utilized as a cemetery, of sorts, ever since,
with many marked and unmarked graves all through the woods
in the vicinity of the graveyard.
The history and folklore of the old cemetery goes right along
with the interesting history of the rise and fall of Port St. Joe.
There's no official records of the old cemetery, but the lore which
goes with the graveyard is probably more interesting than fact.

Trash Pick-Up A Different Story
While it ldoks like' garbage
pick-up is well on its way toward
paying for itself without being
subsidized, roadside trash pick-
up is a different story.
It cost $153,474 to pick up
roadside trash last year. Healy
said trash pick-up is wholly sub-

ly being offered as a city-funded
service without user fees.
Grievance Committee Named
City commissioners named A]
Ray. Janna Harrelson, John
Wright, Tan Smiley and Jimmy
Griffin to man the grievance com-
mittee that will review and make
recommendations to the board
concerning the dispute between
Port St. Joe Police Chief Jay
Leffert and Police Lieutenant
James Hersey.
The grievance was filed by
Hersey after receiving a negative
annual personnel evaluation from
Chief Leffert. The evaluation also


rs


recommended a demotion of'
Hersey from lieutenant to patrol-
man.
City commissioners will make
the final decision on the issue
after receiving a recommendation
from the grievance committee's
review.
Meeting With the St. Joe
Company
Mayor Johnny Linton told
those present at the meeting, city
commissioners were scheduled to
hold a 2:30 meeting Thursday
with St. Joe' Company CEO Peter
Rummell at the company's
Jacksonville office.
He mentioned several items
commissioners wanted to discuss
with Mr. Rummell.
The city is in hopes of getting
land behind the Centennial base-
ball field as a future site for the
Boy Scout Hut.- They also are
looking at a site behind Port St.
Joe High School to construct a
city ball park complex.


Cont'd. from Page 1
Commissioners will explore a
city/county joint venture being
discussed to provide. sewer ser-
vice, especially along the beaches.
from county line to county line
east and west. This would include
the St. Joe Beach area as well as
the Cape and Indian Pass.
Much of this venture, should
it become a reality, would front
St. Joe land. Commissioners are
in hopes that they will give the
project a shot in the arm by par-
ticipating in the venture.
Commissioners are also seek-
ing permission to spread the
mountain of sand, being excavat-

Obesity Named as a Risk Factor for Heart Attacks


, The American Heart
Association recently announced
that obesity has been added td its
list of major risk factors that peo-
ple can control to prevent death
and disability from coronary heart
disease, the cause of heart
attacks.
These major risk factors
include smoking, high blood cho-
lesterol, high blood pressure,
sedentary lifestyle, and now obe-
sity. Heredity, increasing age.and
being male are also regarded as.
risk factors by the, association,
*but they cannot be changed.
"Obesity itself has become a
life-long disease, not a cosmetic
issue, nor a moral judgement-
:and it is becoming a dangerous
epidemic.," says Robert H. Eckel,
M.D.. vice chairman of the
American Heart Association's
Nutrition Committee.
"We want to send' a message
to both health-care providers and
the public that the time has come
to take obesity seriously." says
Eckel, an Internationally recog-
nized medical expert on obesity
and professor of medicine and
physiology and program director
of the General Research Center at
the University of Colorado Health
Sciences Center in Denver.
The association upgraded the
status of obesity from a contribut-
ing risk factor to a major risk fac-
tor for heart attack due to strong
scientific evidence of obesity's
impact on heart disease risk and
due to the increased prevalence of
the condition in the population.
Research has shown that
modest weight reduction-five to
10 percent of body weight-can
reduce high blood pressure and
total blood cholesterol. Modest
achievable weight loss can also
help control diabetes In some peo-
ple.
"Health-care providers and
the public need to accept that
obesity. is a chronic disease, just
like high blood pressure or high
blood cholesterol. Its causes are a
complex. Individualized combina-
tion of genetics, behavior and
lifestyle that we are just now
beginning to understand," says
Eckel.
"Today our understanding of
obesity and its impact on coro-
nary heart disease is in its infan-
cy-comparable to our under-
standing of cholesterol's role in
heart disease in the mid 1970s,"
adds Eckel.

Eckel and Ronald M. Krauss,
M.D., chairman of the American
Heart Association's Nutrition
Committee and senior scientist
and head of the molecular medi-
cine department at the Lawrence

The article, which follows an
AHA medical/scientific statement


on obesity issued last fall, notes
the increase of obesity in the
American population. A recent
survey (National Health and
Nutrition Examination Survey III),
conducted between 1988 and
1994, indicated that 22.5 percent
of men and women ages 20 to 74
. were obese.
"If we broaden our definition ,
of obesity to include people who
are overweight, over 50 percent of
American adults and 15 to 20
percent of our children are over-l

weight today," says Eckel.
There are no simple answers
as to why obesity is increasing at
this time. "However, one reason
for the epidemic is that although
Americans are eating a lower per-,
centage of total calories from fat,
they are eating more calories
overall." says Eckel.
"This may be due to confusing
public health messages that
stressed eating a low-fat diet
without calorie /restriction.
Contrary to some widely circulat-

ed ideas about low-fat eating,
calories do count," -says Eckel.
Studies also indicate that
Americans are more sedentary on
the job and in their leisure time.
Children are watching far more
television and are less physically
active than in the recent past.
'We need to develop better
treatment and lifestyle, strategies
to address the issue of obesity
without passing moral judge-
ment," says Eckel.
Obesity can be treated


through lifestyle strategies, such
as calorie restriction and
increased physical activity, med-
ications, and in some cases,
surgery.
More research on obesity is
one of nine points in the American
Heart Association's call to action
on obesity, which also stresses
the need for greater understand-
ing by both medical professionals
and the public about the com-
plexities of weight regulation and
its relationship to health.

"Green Acres" Is A Prisoner's Place to Be


"Green Acres", the Gulf
County Sheriffs Department's
nickname for the county's inmate
farming project, is exceeding all of
Sheriff Frank McKeithen's hopes
and expectations.
Sheriff McKelthen entered the
project seeking to reduce inmate
food bills while allowing prisoners
to manually contribute to their
upkeep through their work
efforts.
What more could a person
ask for? Fresh squash, potatoes,
peas, cucumbers, tomatoes, and
watermelons have all been har-
vested In an abundance.
"We have 26 different ways of
cooking squash at 'the Gulf
County Jail," McKeithen jokingly
said.
The inmates have not only
raised enough vegetables to sup-
ply their daily needs, bdit have
exceeded that demand and are,
canning and freezing the surplus
for the winter months.
"We'll be pickin' fresh corn in
just a few weeks," McKeithen
said, "with prisoners doing 100%
of the work, under the direction of
the 'Greenjean Brothers'. Claudis
Lanier and James Tankersley.
He said some reduction in
food bills had been noted to-date,
but it was too early to tell how
much the farming project would
eventually impact the' food bud-.
get.

ARE YOU AT RISK?


4 WHave you ever been tested for HIV? You might think that
you are not at risk for becoming infected with the virus that causes AIDS,
so here are a few simple questions that will help you determine if there
is a chance that you have been exposed to the HiV virus.
1. Have you ever (even once) engaged in any type of unprotected sex?
2. Have you ever used any type of injectable drug with a shared needle?
3. Did you receive blood products prior to 1985?
BASIC has a fast-growing client base of diverse individuals. There
are married couples, teenagers, people in their 20s. and people in their
60s and every age in between, and the majority of the clients are hetero-
sexual. AIDS holds no prejudices against any race, gender, or sexual
preference.
Remember, you can't tell whether someone is infected with HIV by
their appearance, and HIV can take many years to develop noticeable
symptoms. The ONLY way to be sure is to be tested and it doesn't cost
you anything but a few minutes of your time.
BASIC is now offering a FREE no-needle HIV test. OraSure is a sim-
ple and accuratee way of testing for HIV antibodies without involving nee-
dles or blood. OraSure resembles a-toothbr-usl with a cotton swab which
you will let rest between your cheek and gum for two minutes. The swab
is then sent to a lab for testing.
If you would like to be tested, call 785-1088 or come to the BASIC
office on any Monday. Wednesday, or Friday between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m.
BASIC is located at 410 Jenks Avenue, downtown Panama City, across
from the post office.
If you think AIDS is just a big-city problem, think again!

What is a healthy weight
for you? Determining how much
you should weigh is not simply a
matter of looking at a height-
weight chart anymore. Although
your weight in numbers Is impor-
tant. it is not the whole story. The
amount of bone. 'muscle and fat
tells much more about body com-
position. The amount of fat you
carry is the critical measurement.
How much of you is made
of fat? A good indicator of how
much fat you carry is the Body
Mass Index (BMI). If you have a
calculator, you can easily deter-
mine vour BMI. Although it is not
a perfect measure, it will give you
a fairly accurate assessment of
how much of' your body is com-
posed of fat. For women, a healthy
BMI is between 20 and 28. For
men it should be between 15 and
22. A BMI above the healthy
range may mean that you need to
reduce your weight.
How to calculate your,
( body mass index: Follow these
three steps (you will need a calcu-
lator):
*Take :your weight ,.in
pounids--138 for example-and
divide by 2.2 to get your weight in
kilograms. The, weight for the
example will be 62.72 kilograms.
which you can round up to 63 to
make it easier to work with. This
is your "weight number".
S*Next, you need to convert
your height in inches to your
height in centimeters. This is
much easier than it sounds For
example, if you are a 5'3" woman,
your height is 63". f you multiply
'63 x 2.54 (which is the number of
centimeters per inch) your answer
5will be 160.02 centimeters, which
you can round-off to 160 centime-
ters'.


Dr. GCary Grorman
General Psychlatry


For apppintments call:
(850) 639-4511


*Now, you need to find out
how many meters 160 centime-
ters represents. To do this. divide
your height in centimeters by 100
(there are 100 centimeters per
meter). In the example, you would
take 160 and divide it by 100 to
get a sum of 1.6 meters.
*The next step is to square
your height in meters-in the
example 1.6 meters. That means
you need to multiply the sum by
itself., n the example. you would
multiply 1.6 x 1.6 to get an
answer of 2.56. This number is
your -height number".
*Divide your weight number
by your height number. In the
example you would divide 63 by
2.56 to arrive at a BMI of 24.6.
The woman in the example is in
the acceptable range. and does
not need to lose weight for health
purposes.
Are you an apple or a
pear? Where you carry your
weight also has significance for
your health .
People who tend to put :on.
weight above the waist- "apple"
shaped people, may have a
greater chance of developing high
levels of "bad" cholesterol, hard-
ening of the arteries (which caus-
es the blood vessels in the heart
to harden and become narrow.
reducing blood flow), high blood
pressure and diabetes.
"Pear" shaped people carry
their extra weight below the
waistline, and don't seem to have
as high a risk of developing the
above conditions as "apples" do. .A
healthy waist/hip ratio for women
is .80 or below and for men 1.0 or
below.

waist/hip ratio:

Gulf Rifle Club Plans


Matches for June 20th


The Gulf Rifle Club, will hold
two separate .22 rimfire rifle
matches, a BR-50 and a small-
bore metallic silhouette match on
:Saturday morning. June 20th.
Registration and set-up will start
at 8:30 and the BR-50 match will
begin at 9:30.
The BR-50 match is shot with
the rifle supported on a stable
Ibenchrest and consists of finng
25 or 50 shots depending on the
bullseye target the competitor
chooses to use. The match is very
challenging and will test your
ability in shooting.
The silhouette match will fol-
low the completion of the BR-50
,match and consists of 40 shots
fired at metal targets placed at 40,
60., 75, and, 10 y.ar.ds from Le e
finng line. All shots are fired from
.the standing position. Most any
.22 rifle is suitable for this match
and is a lot of fun to shoot.
Trophies will be awarded to
third place for each match. Cost


*Measure around the small-
est part of your waistline-don't
pull in. just stand relaxed. For
this example, assume you are a
woman with a 34" waist.
*Next. measure your hips at
the largest point. For this exam-
ple. that number is 43"
*Then, divide the waist mea-
surement by the hip measure-
ment. For this .example. you
would divide :34 by 43 to get the
sum of .79. The woman in this
example fits into the healthy
range.

Next in the batter's box was
Adam Hamm who took Lhe
Apalachicola pitcher to deep cen-
ter field for an apparent home
run. However, at mid-pitch the
home plate umpire called out a
"balk" resulting in a controversial
and incorrect reversal of the home
run.
Chambers was brought in
from third on the balk to tie the
score at 3-3. but the team was
unable to regroup and record any
additional runs in the game.
Apalachicola picked up the tie-

Michael Manley was the lead-

single, followed by Hamm with
two singles. Sam Bell added a sin-

The Old Saint Joseph Ceme-
tery, located on the Old Cemetery
Road off of Garrison Avenue, is
all that's left of what once was
possibly the fastest growing and
most fashionable city in Florida.
Although It's a familiar sight
to most of Port St. Joe's locals,
many newcomers to the area
don't know about It. Because It's
shrouded by brush and pine
trees, most people just drive right
by it, totally unaware even of its
existence and, more importantly,
of its significance.
The cemetery is the mute
legacy of a town and era long
since passed away. However, in
order for one to truly grasp the
significance of this small, often
forgotten, piece of land,, one
must look at the city it was
created for, the city of Old St.
Joseph.
In 1835, the U.S. Supreme
Court awarded ownership of 1.25
million acres of land, including
what is now the city of Apalachi-
cola, to the Forbes Company. dis-
placing many of the settlers living
in that area. These settlers relo-
catqd to the area which became
St. Joseph..
The new city grew rapidly,
and its population and influence
Increased exponentially. Within
Just three years, the city had
grown large enough to host the
Florida Constitutional Convention
in 1838, playing an Important
role in Florida politics at that
time.
Many of the citizens of Old
St. Joseph were 'wealthy, well-
to-do individuals who imparted
an air of sophistication and
style to the city. St. Joseph, at
its peak, was actually quite
metropolitan in nature, offering
entertainment of every variety.
and bursting with activity and
life.
In addition to the natural-
beauty of the area, the city could
boast of ho less than six swank
--hotels, -two racetracks; and a
theatre, and it had one of the na-
tion's very first railroads. It could
also claim a daily newspaper,
many flourishing businesses, and
numerous other attractions.
Old St. Joseph was a chic,
fashionable town that rivaled
some of America's major cities In
both charm and commerce, but
several events led to its decline.
In 1841, an epidemic of yel-


The 1840-41
Yellow Fever
Epidemic took
many lives and
was the beginning
of the end for
Old St. Joseph.


Burial tombs, such as these, were built secretary of the Lake Wimico and lola Rail-

do people of the era. Their identification lachicola and Marianna and two doctors are

the Constitution, Governor Duval's wife, the


low fever ravaged St. Joseph,
killing hundreds and frighten-
ing off those that were left. Lat-
er that. year, a fire totally de-
stroyed part of the old city.
These incidents, in conjunction
with the financial hardships
caused by the Panic of 1837,
took their toll on St. Joseph,
. and the city began to crumble.
. The devastating hurricane that
swept through later on was the
end of Old St. Joseph. Although
people still lived in the area,
i the 'fastest growing city in
Florida' simply didn't exist any-
'more.
The Old St. Joseph Cemetery
is the only part of that town that
still exists. Time has removed
everything else.
According to a document pro-
vided by the St. Joseph Historical
Society, the fenced portion of the
cemetery is only a small part of.:
the original burial ground of St.
Joseph. Other victims of the yel-
low fever epidemic are said to
have been buried In mass, un-
marked graves in the surround-
ing area, but this has yet to be
proven.
The restoration of the old ce-
metery began In 1959, with the
founding of the St. Joseph Histor-
ical Society. The purpose and
continuing project of the Society
is the constant care and beautifi-
cation of the cemetery. Over the
years, the society has done sever-
al things to accomplish this.
The cemetery now possess-
es a gazebo and a guestbook
that visitors from all over
America and from many foreign
countries have signed. A circu-
lar walkway, that the Society
commissioned, winds through
the cemetery, and there are in-
formational plaques placed in
the' gazebo and at different lo-
cations on the grounds.

Episcopal

SYouth

Program

The St. James Episcopal
Church is providing a ministry. to
children who need help but' are
unable to pay for it, Rev. Jerry
Huft told the Rotary Club last
Thursday.
"The money. to finance such
an operation came from the Jes-
sie Ball duPont foundation. This
source of money has been availa-
ble to churches for' some time,
but since there is no money made
available to provide bricks and
mortar, it was largely forgotten by
churches,"' he said. "We discov-
ered that it was available to pro-
vide such operations as we are
running and applied, successful-
ly."
The program has been in op-
eration for three years, now, and
has been enlarged from' strictly a
summer program for about 25
kids, to an after school, year-
round help program., manned
largely by volunteers. .
"At first, we just taught kids
how to behave themselves, and
furnished a supervised area to
play," Rev. Huft said. 'Then, we
noticed some"*'came without first
having breakfast We started fur-
nishing breakfast. Then we start-
ed serving lunch and a snack."
The entire program is geared
to underprivileged children, and
furnished tutoring of their school
subjects to after school care.
Rev. Huft said the program
has managed to stay afloat but .
their grant' runs out this year.
'"We have applied for' another
grant, but even if we get It, the
grant doesn't pay for the entire
program and we're a small con-
gregalion with a large building
payment. We can't expand much
without help from outside," Huft
said. The speaker stressed how
much the program is needed by
the community "whether it is fur-
nished by our church or anoth-
' er," he said.
Guests of the club were Jim
Mann of Panama City and Joe
Danford of Port St. Joe.

Florida Ranked No. 1 In


Children's Meal Programs


Florida ranks first in the na-
tion for its expansion of the feder-
ally funded Summer Food Service
Program. A new report, released
by the Food Research and Action
Center (FRAC) in Washington,
,, D.C. documents Florida's dramat-
ic Increased' in the number of
children reached by the program
from 1996 to 1997.
The report indicates that
Florida now reaches a greater
percentage of children than any
other state in the country, with
nearly two out of five of those eli-
gible participating.
In 1997, The Florida Summer.
.Food Program Increased its aver-
age daily attendance by 57% .to
335.659" children,, a gain of
121.837 children in one summer.
The dramatic Increase is .a result
of an aggressive outreach cam-
paign initiated in February, 1997,
by the Florida Department of Ed-
ucation and the Florida Impact,
Education Fund. to reach more of
Florida's eligible children.
Summer meals are often the
anchor around which summer
education, literacy, recreation,
and violence prevention activities
are. built. .....
"I am proud that Florida is
leading the nation with our ef-
forts to reach hungry .children
during, the summer months,"
Florida Education Commissioner
Frank Brogran said. "Children
who are properly nourished are
more likely to pay attention and
succeed in school. We want to
make sure that every eligible
child has access to 'the Summer
Food Service Program."
The Florida Lottery .is the
newest partner in the state's out-
reach efforts and will be under-.
writing public service announce-
ments to promote the Summer
Food Hotline. Operated by the
Florida Impact Education Fund,
this is a toll-free number that


families can call to find the Sum-
mer Food site nearest their home.
'The strong commitment you '
see here is the reason Florida has
Taken the lead In ensuring that
nutrition doesn't take a summer
break when our kids do." said Dr.
Marcia Mann, Secretary of the
Florida Lottery. 'The Florida Lot-
tery is proud to be a part of this
excellent program." By calling 1-
800-224-3470, families will be
matched to one of the 2.000 sites
across the state.
IDuring .the' regular school
year, 900,000 Florida children
are eligible for free or reduced
price meals.' For many of these
children, school vacation may
:represent a hungry time. The Sec-
ond Harvest National Food Bank
Network recently released a re-
port that found among- food
banks reporting seasonal re-
quests for emergency food, nearly
half (47%) found that requests for
food for children go up in the
summer when school is out.
The Summer Food Service
Program is designed to provide
food services at no cost to chil-
dren 18 and younger in areas
where poor economic conditions
exist. School boards, camps, pri-
vate non-profit agencies, local..
government agencies and church- |
es utilize the program to pick up
where the regular school lunch
program leaves off.
SdThe Summer Food Program is
administered nationally by the:',
United States Department of Agri-
culture and within the Florida 1
Department of Education's Food !
and Nutrition Management sec-
tion.
Although the program guar- |
antees funding for all eligible chil-
dren, it is not being utilized to its
fullest. Florida, which has the
highest participation rate in the !
country, reached only about two
out. of every five eligible children


in 1997.

were times, as when I served.
that it seemed to be tattered.

our flag didn't fly, in places where
our liberties didn't apply. .This

Based ond the findings of a
Florida Youth Tobacco Survey Re-

students and 35.3% of high
school students use some form of
tobacco. SWAT hopes to use


events like this dance to assist in
decreasing these numbers in the
Gulf County area.
Pamela Harden, one of, the
program's sponsors, said, "It is al-

to take stand on Issues that are
important to them, and the City
of Wewahitchka is proud to be a
part of this rally."

MEDITATIONS: OF A

(ITuntru 3 Eru E

By LOWELL F. ADAMS

Is being
religious the
same as being
a Christian?


"There is a way that seemeth right. but the end
thereof are the ways of death."
PROVERBS 16:25

Z HERE ARE MANY ENEMIES of the Christian at work,
in this world. If you believe in God and trust His Word of
Truth, these forces of evil are continually trying to lead you into
another kind of faith one that minimizes or negates God's
Truth. For instance, when we accept the scientific. illusory
explanation of the world just "exploding" into existence, and
how the human race evolved from some tiny creature which
crawled from the sea.. we have rejected the Truth of God.
We are warned over and over. all through the Bible, of the
false prophets and false teachers, who will arise and try to
mislead those who accept God's Truth.
Jesus tells us in Natthew 24:24, of false teachers who will
be, able to perform such great signs and wonders,"'they might
deceive God's most faithful followers, if it were possible.
'"Religion" and "Faith in God" is not necessarily the same
thing. The people who crucified Jesus were extremely religious.
but they were far from being a friend of God. Every faith has its
religion. whether it be a religion based on God's whole truth or
otherwise. But Christian religion should come from a rock-solid
faith in Jesus and the Word of God. Likely there are many
religious people (maybe even pastors) in Christian churches.
who depend more on religion than on their faith in God..
Second Timothy 2:15 tells us to study and righdy divide
the word of truth. There are some basic fundamental truths that
Christians must embrace and believe. Satan, whom Jesus called
"The Father of Lies", has persuaded the world to look upon
Fundamental Christians as shameful and dishonorable. Let me
tell )ou.'I am glad that to be a Fundamental Christian. There
are two kinds of believers: Fundamentalists and Liberals.
:Fundamental means BASIC and ESSENTLAL. Liberal means
BROAD-MINDED, NOT BOUND BY WORD FOR WORD
INTERPRETATION.
I'm a fundamental believer. I believe God's Word means
what it says. I take no liberties with that Word.

Make Your Child's Summer Safe and Fun


The summer months of May
through August are a great time
for children to enjoy time off from
school and play in the outdoors.
With more and more children
engaging in outdoor activities,
however, the risk increases that a
child may be seriously injured.
More unintentional childhood
deaths and injuries occur
between the months of May and
August. Hospital emergency room
staff call this time of the year
"trauma season". By putting safe-
ty first for your children and fol-
lowing the guidelines listed, par-
ents can help ensure safe sum-
mer fun for the entire family.
The Arnold Palmer Hospital


Gospel

Explosion '98'
The ;Gospel Explosion '98.
children's ministerial teaching,
will be held on Sunday, June 27,.
at the Washington Recreation
Center from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00
p.m. There will be Biblical teach-.
ing, singing, food, and games.
The Gospel Street Explosion
'98 will also take place on Sun-
day, June 27, on Martin Luther
King Boulevard at' 7:00 p.m.
There will be sermons, quartettes,
choirs, and solos. This event has
been sponsored by the North Port
St. Joe Community Choir.


Note of Thanks
On Friday, June 12, a fire
consumed my trailer where I lived
with my two children, and we lost
all of our belongings. Even
though it was bad and sad to lose
all of our worldly possessions, It
was very gratifying to have so
much assistance from St. James
Episcopal Church, First United
Methodist Church. the American
Red Cross, and the members of
and my co-workers at the SL Jo-
seph Bay Country Club, and the
many friends that called and as-
sisted after our loss.
I want to thank the Over-
street Volunteer Fire Department
for their work. It is impossible to
save a structure that Is complete-
ly gone In approximately 30 min-
utes.
Thanks to all.
SAlexis Corbin


Sfor Children & Women offers
these summer safety tips:
BACKYARD BASICS
*Always supervise children,
even if they are "only in the back-
yard."
*Keep tools out of children's
reach. .
*Make sure all fences and
gates are secure.
*Lock up barbecue grills and
gasoline containers.
*Remove poisonous garden
plants.
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR
NEIGHBORHOOD
*Familiarize yourself and
your child with neighborhood play,
areas.
*Warn children about unac-
ceptable play areas.
*Children under age 10
should never cross streets alone.
WINDOWS
*Unopened windows should
be locked at all times.
*Keep furniture, especially
beds, away from windows.
*Keep draperies and window
cords out of children's reach.
'Remember that window
screens are only designed to keep
bugs out, not to keep children in.
They can easily give way to the
weight of a child.
SUNBURNS
*Do not puncture blisters.
Apply cool compresses and a
moisturizer to the skin.
*For severe sunburns with
reddened skin, painful blisters,
swelling, nausea and headache,
seek medical attention immedi-
ately.


*Prevention is best-use sun-
screens.
HEAT CRAMPS,
EXHAUSTION, STROKE



Don't Forget
Mammograms.':-.
The National Institutes of
Health (NIH) and the National
Cancer Institute (NCI) recently
announced that mammograms at
regular Intervals for 'women age
50 to 69 can reduce the number
of deaths from breast cancer by ....
one-third. The findings apply to
these women whether or not they
combine mammograms with.
breast examinations.
Mammogram screenings are
an Important tool In the early de- '
tection of breast cancer. By com-
bining them with regular doctor
visits and self-examinations. a ',
woman can increase the chances 'W
of discovering breast cancer in Its :
early stages.
The benefits of mammograms
for women age 40 to 49 years old
are less convincing, according to
the NIH and NCI panel. The panel
weighed the advantages of early
diagnosis against such factors as
tests that give false negative or
false positive results, further
tests that may cause anxiety and
Inconvenience, and the small risk
of radiation exposure.
In the end, the panel con-
cluded that current data' does not
warrant recommending that all
women younger than 50 undergo
regular mammograms. Recogniz-
ing that women have different cir-
cumstances and needs, however,
the panel suggested that women
talk with their medical providers.


*Cramps are characterized by
painful muscle spasms and are
caused by inadequate salt intake
during exercise. Treat by drinking
lots of electrolyte solution such as
Gatorade.
:*Exhaustion occurs when
children exercise in high tempera-
tures and sweat a lot. Some
symptoms Include headache,
voi4ting and profuse sweating.
Move Individual to cooler location
and lay them flat with feet elevat-
ed.
*Stroke is the most extreme of
heat emergencies and is charac-
terized by NO SWEATING. Move
individual to cooler location and
seek medical attention immedi-
ately.
SPRAINS AND STRAINS
Remember to use the RICE
method:
SR- Rest
* I-Ice
'C Compression (elastic bandage)
* E-- Elevate
No parent ever anticipates
that a tragedy will occur during
this fun-filled time but summer is
also a season when children are
pushing their abilities to the lim-
its.
