Mayor Johnny Linton, Rep. Jamey Westbrook, and Charles McClellan unveil new street marker.



Fifth Street Renamed for City Pioneer


When Cecil Costin. Sr. first came to Port 'St. Joe, the street
was merely a set of ruts in the sand. Then, in just a short while
it became known, locally, as "Blossom Row". In later years it was
-known-as State-Road 71 art'-Ptftlr"Str~ In-1937, .the 'tr'et
was paved and turned into a four lane thoroughfare, known to
everyone in town as 'The Boulevard". Since Monday of this week,
it will be known as "Cecil Costln Boulevard".
Fifth Street, "the Boulevard", had its name officially changed
to honor Costin, a pioneer to Port St. Joe, in ceremonies held
Monday morning.
The street is in the process of getting a face lift, as well as a
name change. Mayor Johnny Linton said, in the dedication cere-
mony, that "the change from magnolia trees to palm trees was
more in keeping with the 'Florida' motif. Palm trees are Florida
natives!" he remarked.
A huge tent sheltered Costin's large family and the many vis-
itors who attended the street renaming ceremony, from the sun
and heat and, later on, threatening rain.
DEDICATION PROGRAM
The program was started with a song by Mary Lou Cumbie
and an invocation by Rev. Howard Browning. Mayor Linton act-
ed as master of ceremonies, Introducing Representative Jamey
Westbrook and Charles McClellan, representing Senator Pat
Thomas. Both state lawmakers referred to Costin's method of
conducting business, "on a handshake and his word."


Judge Bob Moore identified Costin as. "a saint among men".
Billy Joe. Rish called. Costin and his wife. Lola, "uncommon peo-
ple with a common touch". Rev. Howard Browning remembered
'them as. "T vo-of the most unassuming people I have ever met"-!
FAMILY THANKS EXPRESSED
Mel Magidson, Jr., accepted the honor paid Costin, for the
family, when he, too, referred to Costin's unassuming attitude of
"Putting God first, family second and self last. My grandfather
would have appreciated this memorial, but he would never have
suggested it. He would have wondered what all the fuss was
about. I, and the rest of the family truly appreciate the recogni-
tion you have paid him. As for me, the street will always be "Did-
dy's Boulevard' "!
Dorothy Costin Magidson also expressed the thanks of the
family, saying, "It thrills my heart to see he was so special to a
people who were so special to him. You named the prettiest
street in town after him!"
After the remarks were made, Representative Westbrook and
McClellan unveiled a newly installed street marker at the corner
of Reid Avenue and Cecil Costin Boulevard.
It was then official, the street, from that time on, will be
known by its new name. Mayor Linton pledged to have work
completed on the remaining blocks of the street in just a short
while.


PSJ Applies for $350,000 CDBG Grant


City commissioners got bad
news/good news on their CDBG
grant application to' redo and
improve stormwater drainage in
north Port St. Joe.
The board had applied for a
8600,000 CDBG grant through
Julian Webb and Associates a few
months ago. Webb told the board
Tuesday night that things didn't
look good for that application
approval based on the project's
low point assessment.
He did give commissioners
some hope of getting help to cor-
rect the problem though. He
explained the state had recently
released CDBG recovery funds for
El Niflo-related disasters which
the project could qualify for.
The grants would total only


$350,000, but Webb proposed
that if the city left $150,000 in
matching funls "intact", the main
stormwater drainage problem
could still be addressed.
Commissioners unanimously
agreed to pass a resolution to
apply for the grant funds and to
leave the matching funds in place.
Smallwood Updates SJC
Transactions
Clay Smallwood, vice presi-
dent of St. Joe Timberland
Company, updated city commis-
sioners on the status of several
matters city officials and the St.
Joe Company had reached agree-
ment in principal upon during a
recent trip to Jacksonville and a
meeting with the company's CEO,
Peter Rummell.


Smallwood said the company
should have an appraised value of
property, near the Centennial
Building, the city wants to pur-
chase within the next few weeks.
Local civic organizations, led
by the Rotary Club. are hoping to
construct a new Scout Hut on the
property.
Commissioners and Small-
wood also reviewed several sites
as possible areas to locate a new
city ball park complex upon. St.
Joe Company officials have
agreed to work with the city to
help find a suitable location for
the future project.
Plans are also underway to
pave a city parking area on sever-
al St. Joe lots located on the


northwest corner of the intersec-
tion of Highway 98 and Cecil
Costin Boulevard (Highway 71).
Commissioners were also
given permission to stockpile soil
from the Port St. Joe marina
basin at a spoil area behind
Highland View on St. Joe pioper-
ty. ,
Let's Clean Up
"If the citizens don't help, we
can't do it," Mayor Johnny Linton
said as he spoke about efforts to
clean up the city.
When elected as mayor,
Linton's campaign theme includ-
ed "cleaning-up the city".
After a survey of the city
Tuesday, he said he was ashamed

Shut Down



30Davs


Florida Coast Paper
Company ..will temporarily
curtail all production opera-
tions during 'September due
to poor market conditions.
According to General
Manager Ferrel Allen, the
mill is scheduled to be down
for approximately 30 days,
beginning September 1.
Start-up is anticipated dur-
ing the first week of October.
Allen said virtually all
460 hourly employees will
be affected by the curtail-
ment. Beginning September
9, some 160 maintenance
employees and a small num-
ber of departmental support
personnel will be recalled to
conduct previously planned
maintenance work. This
work is expected to continue
as planned through
September.
Allen said the shutdown
is related to the current
world-wide market condi-
tions that are affecting
much of the paper industry.
He said the economic situa-
. tion in Asia,, high invento-
ries, and falling prices are
causing extensive downtime
throughout the industry.
The company will work
closely with the state unem-
ployment office to assist
employees in obtaining tem-
porary benefits.

Faces Charter

Filing Dilemma

Wewahitchka city' commis-
sioners found themselves in a bit
of a dilemma concerning their
revised city charter during, last
Monday's (July 13th) city com-
mission meeting.
Tom Semmes approached the
board inquiring whether the
revised city charter had been filed
to and approved by the State of
Florida as required.
City Manager Don Minchew
acknowledged, through his over-
sight, he had failed to send the
document to Tallahassee for leg-
islative approval.
Semmes questioned the
board as to how that affects the
city manager's position and city
commissioners being considered
as full time employees (entitling
them to employee health bene-
fits), since both matters are pro-
vided for in the amended charter.
Board members instructed
their attorney, David Carl Gaskin,
to check into the matter.
Mandy Strange, the city's
deputy clerk, said Tuesday morn-
ing that the revised charter was
submitted to the state via regis-

School Board's Tentative Budget Reflects Construction Projects, Uncertainties


Gulf County School District is
still in a position of quandry, with
the drafting of a financial plan for
the 1998-1999 fiscal year as a re-
sult of several factors. Number
one is the continued uncertainty
of the outcome of Florida Coast
Paper's suit claiming its personal
property levy is too high. A final
decision will be set out by the
courts, but the matter has not
come up for a decision as yet
and, as a result, is still in limbo,
tying up some $450,000 in tax
funds which the board levies, but
does not have the opportunity to


put to use until a decision is
made.
Another unquieting factor is
the fact that the county has bor-.
rowed this amount from a state
fund to make up the shortfall and
as a result, must budget this
money for repayment in the cur-
rent year's budget.
Add to all that a windfall of
just over $750,000 in state funds
over last year's contribution and
toss in some $5,036,884 for new
construction projects and you


have a complex financial picture.
CAPITAL PROJECTS
All of the` proposed capital
outlay funds are not for the pro-
posed new Port St. Joe Elemen-
tary School renovation, which will
begin construction in about two
months.
Approximately $507,977 will
be used to replace air copndition-
ing systems, lighting, doors and
windows in both county high
schools. The units being replaced
are more than 20 years old and
need replacing or major repairs.


TAX INCREASE
A slight tax increase is built
into the new budget plan, which
also includes a slight tax reduc-
tion as well. The increase was re-
quired by the state. of Florida as
matching money for its contribu-
tion of state money for the sys-
tem's operation. Not only was this
tax rate increased, but the state
contribution was also increased.
The county's share of funds
was increased by 1.32%. but ac-
tual overall cash payments by
taxpayers was reduced by. 18 of a


mill. A public hearing is sched-
uled on this increase for Tuesday,
July 28 at 5:15 in the County
School Board offices.
NEW INFORMATION
New information is provided
this year in the legal advertise-
ment of the new fiscal plan. A
graph is included which tells the
story of changes in student load,
revenue changes and projections,
capital projects, debt service
trends, revenue per student and
number of employees, including
teachers.


The graph answers a lot of
questions and replaces supposi-
tion with facts. It causes its share
of confusion, too, by identifying
important facets with mysterious
code names and acronymns.
By and large the School
Board has termed the current
budget plan as a "bare bones"
plan with available money placed
where it will do the most good for
the greater number of students.
The budget plan can be found
in this issue of The Star on pages
4B and 5B.

Odd Weapons

BEING A FORMER AVID READER of comic books, I am not
surprised at any innovation for death or destruction which
might be thought up or concocted. In other words, nothing Is im-
possible; from "Diet Smith's" wrist 2-way television developed to
help Dick Tracy maintain law and order to Spider Man's web-
shooting wrist capsules.
Thus, %the announcement last week that a group of three
members of the Republic of Texas separatist group had devel-
oped a sophisticated weapon to kill President Clinton and other
government officials didn't seem all that strange.
The weapon the :three: planned to use for their dastardly act,
was a renovated Bic cigarette lighter. They planned to modify the
lighter so it would expel air instead of propane., Then they alleg-
edly planned to? glue, a:hypodermic needle to ,tlie opening o the
lighter and insert a cactus needle that would be coated with a bi-
ological agent such as anthrax, botulism or the AIDS virus.
Talk abouty6ur comic book weapons! .

THIS WEAPON ISN'T SO FAR-FETCHED. Remember, sever-,
al years ago, when Dick Tracy had to settle several crimes which
had been perpetrated, using an "ice gun". The culprits carried a
miniature freezer around with 'them; filled the empty bullet cas-
ings with water, and placed them in the freezer to obtain frozen
ice for projectiles in their bullets. The target was shot and the
bullet melted, leaving no trace.
Dick Tracy worked long and hard to solve this one.
Just as the law enforcement people would have probably
struggled over this one, had it been successful. But, we'll never
know. Fortunately, the trio allegedly sent letters to their victims
-including the attorney general, FBI director, and the Texas at-
torney general-spelling out just how they planned their demise
if the intended victims didn't shape up.
THERE ARE ALL KINDS of people with twisted minds out
there. Some are veterans, salt-of-the-earth type of regular fel-
lows with no record of background violence, such as these men.
They must be nipped In the bud and dealt with properly, to dis-
courage others from trying the same thing, if for no other rea-
son. We can't write off their crazy ideas as unworkable, because
one day, one is liable to be successful.




"Free" Isn't Free

BEFORE YOU GET ALL HEPPED up by the fact that your
elected officials are getting you free telephone calling anywhere
inside Gulf County for free; think again!
There's nothing absolutely free at no obligation. There is a
cost somewhere down the road. Just thought we would set the
record straight before some unscrupulous lawmaker tried to tell
you such an arrangement was free, without cost to you, the tele-
phone customer. Of course. It won't cost you much, but it will
cost you!
The phone company will not lose money. It may realize a lit-
tle less revenue-than: It.-would normally, realize. but:it would not
entirely be a gift.
LET US GO ON record as saying that no toll calling through-
out the county would be nice; it would also be convenient. There
would be no more surcharge when you desired to call Wewa-
hitchka and no surcharge when you desired to dial a Port St.
Joe number from Wewahitchka.
The phone company would take an average of what their
long distance charges presently are and divide them between the
number of phones in both communities, adding the difference to
all numbers. You are charged the long distance rate before you
ever dial.
Phone users aren't necessarily charged more for the service
than for the service as it was once was, but be assured, you are
not getting away with something for nothing.
Of course, we suspect you already knew this. We're just re-
minding you, in case you were subject to being sold an errone-
ous idea. We think it is an idea whose time has come, however,
and we would like to see it initiated.
The ortly customers who might be getting a little something
extra in the deal are those who call between the two cities often
and regularly. The average caller should see no difference in the
long run-say. the full year's charges.


I tell you'how we used to cool

Aren't We All Creatures of Our Habits?


AREN'T WE ALL creatures of
habit? Don't we have 'routines'
for doing everything in a certain
order? Don't you follow the same
routes to and from work each day
and wouldn't dream of travelling
a different route? Isn't there a
certain time to do everything from
getting up to going to bed at
night? There is with me. Every-
thing in its time and a time for
everything!
I have a certain time to eat
dinner, a certain time to go to
work, a certain time -to even;clean
out my electric shaver, of all
things
I guess you could call me reg-
imented.
It's all because of working
with a deadline for 50 years.
Everything I do has to be done,
completed, by a certain time, so
my complete life has been built
around these deadlines. I know,
instantly, if my schedule is on
track or if I am running a little
/behind. ,


THE PROBLEM IS, Smudgie
knows my schedule, tool
She knows when I go to-bed;
she knows when i- get up; she
knows what time I go to the bath-
room, when I shave, when I get
ready to go to work and :when I
am- supposed to take- her for- a
walk outside. She has my-and
:Frenchie's-complete schedule
memorized.
I guess pets are creatures of
habit, too. At least Smudgie is.
Her habits are a bit too much, it
seems at times. There's no alter-
ing them, though. I've tried, at
times to make her do something.
to fit my schedule, rather than to

fit hers, to no avail. She insists
on taking a nap at her nap time,
or going outside to exercise at her
appointed time. or eating at her
regular time, and nothing can en-
courage her otherwise.
She will stand, expectantly,
between us and the door we usu-
., ally exit through when it comes
time to go to work, to make sure
she doesn't get left behind
She will dance around expec-
tantly, at any unusual activity in-
side the house, because she
thinks we're getting ready to go
somewhere and she wants to go
too. She doesn't bother if we're
-going; to church,.. or, someplace


she knows she can't tag along.
S She knows us and otr moVe-

THE OTHER DAY, my son
Alfoid started replacing someL
screen panels with windows on, a
small back porch we have, chang-
ing a screened porch into a sun
porch. I I
9 The first thing he did-was to'
knock out the screen panels on
the sides of the porch,' leaving
them wide open and the screen at
Sthe back of the porch, intact It
was still necessary to open the
Screen door for ingress and
egress to the back porch, because
the framing was still, intact.
The- outside cat went in and
:- out of the porch through the wide,
open sides. He went' and came as
he pleased, just as you would ex-
pect anybody would, ,with the
screen removed to make way for
the windows. .
But not Smudgie! -
When I put her out I always
i let her out the screen door. I let


her out now. and she will stay on
the porch until r let her out the
screen door She won't ever ty to
go' out through the now-wide-
open sides, along with the cat.
o Smudgie has never gone out
any other way other than through
the screen door, so she continues
to Insist on going out in that
manner. '
Dumb dogl!
I DON'T KNOW what Smud-
gie will do when Alford gets
through with his alteration work.
She won't know what to do with a
solid door, or she will have- to de-
velop a niew habit
I'll find out then, first hand, if
you can really teach a new trick
to an old dog.
If it's, possible, I'm going to
try to rearrange some of Smud-
gle's habits, so she won't be so
demanding of our time.
First thing I'm going to re-
program in Smudgle's repertoire
of habits is her sleeping manner.
She jumps, on the bed and


hogs the center, leaving us the ,
edges. ..
Or, jumping ifitQ my lap every
time I -sit down.,_;. .
Or having to have a, bite every,
time I sit down to a meal.. : .,-- :-,
Or a number of other such
habits that c, an. become .asnui-
sance at times.., .

I GUESS"'i COULD change
part of her- habits if I could ...
change part of my habits, but
where a habit Is so strongly, n-
grained that It keeps one from go-
ing through an opening when It is
available, there isn't,much hope
of an easy Introduction to a new
or changed way of doing things.
Like Frenchie's habit of turn-;,
ing on all the lights outside but
actively turning off all the lights
in the house, leaving onee to feel
their way inside, but able to read
a newspaper from any vantage
point on the outside. One day, I'm.
going to stumble and fall, break-
ing my neck,., just because of- a
habit someone will not change! ,

Voyles' Home Is
' Destroyed by Fire
The home of Danny Voyles

Cleota ruled the blaze.was caused e '-
by an electrical problem near the
home's utility room.


Voyles and his family were
staying in an apartment behind
the home at the time of the blaze.
He said they had just finished
painting the inside of the house
and were staying in the apart-
ment to get away from the fresh
paint fumes and awoke during
the middle of the night to discov-
er the fire.

front porch on extra hot nights.
And Uncle' Womack had this house
with. an open hallway built right
through the middle.of it. I'm telling
you. It had .the greatest breeze-I
don't care how hdt it got, you could
lay up. there I..that hall, face
turned towd toward the' wind, and it
would' cool. you hight down. You
might have to fight one of the.dogs
for position . .
If I could find a porch today
big enough to stretch out on and
actually manage to go to sleep lay-
ing on those hard planks ..... .it
would take a crane two days to get
me back on my feet and a team of
physical therapists weeks to get all
the parts working again. And I'
think old country homes with big
hallways through, the middle have
gone the way of twenty-'five cent
, gasoline, Chuck Taylor All-Stars. .

Call me crazy but I'm not going
to submit to, or be held captive by,
an indoor air condition system. I'll
use it. But I ain't; going; to adjust
my-life to it. I've got to be out doing
something.-
Plus; it takes all the game out
of it You've got to bt te the heat .,.
.. naturally!
Swimming in thli ocean 'is
hardly cooling off. : it doesn't
count If you can't be shaded by the
overhanging oak limbs. And don't
even mention those (popular water
theme :parks. Paying twenty dol-
lars a head and then standing in
line for forty-five minutes just to
get, up to the rope swing ain't
going to cool me off one iotal
My age is working against :me
on this one. A nine year old jumps
through the sprinkler and every-
one laughs and declares, "What
funi" Get a few years on you and
try that, and those 'same people
are whispering about the loose
screws.
It's a tough deal. And I could
use some ideas. But hurry with
your suggestions .. we'll soon
be over in October and then I'll be
looking for ways to warm up .

Respectfully,

of what he saw. Cigarette, butts
littered Reid Avenue, knee high
grass, paper and cardboard were
strewn down the alleyways, and
businesses and homes were in a
general mess.
"How can we expect anyone to
visit a community that looks like
this?" he said.
After a discussion 'between
commissioners and those present
at the meeting. Linton followed
the recommendation of Barbara
Arendt, and suggested the city
plan a "Clean-Up/Fix-Up. Day" In,
the city.
He also recommended the
commissioners plan on being at
the forefront of the activities.-
Dates and plans for the`
"Clean-Up/Fix-Up Day" will be"
announced in the near future.
Question PD investigations
Richard Robinson questioned
commissioners as to whether any
other officers were under investi-
gation for possible demotions or
layoffs by the local, police depart-
ment.
Mayor Linton said nothing
had been presented to the com-
mission concerning any investiga-
tion. He further emphasized that
any such action would have to
come before the board and would
be open to the public for com-
Sment. ...
After a lengthy discussion on
the police department morale and
personnel problems, Linton said
he would be meeting with Police
Chief Jay Leffert, and every effort
would be made to try to help
improve relationships between all
parties involved.
Part of the fuel for the conver-
sation is a disciplinary issues
memorandum submitted by
Leffert to the commission during
a workshop session April 1st.
That document suggested ter-
minating Sgt. Butch Arendt and
demoting Sgt. Terry Carr to'
patrolman.
Commissioners voiced their
objections to the proposal at the
time. and the matter has not been
further acted on by them.
In Other Business
*Phillip Jones, Preble-Rish
engineer, told board members
that tie-ins to the new Ward Ridge
sewer system should begin within
a week.


Strickland that his son, Jessie,
had gotten up to go to work at
Raffield's when he heard the
smoke detector sound off. His son
went outside and saw the smoke
and ran back in and woke up
everyone in the residence.
Dowling credits his son with
saving the lives of his family.
Don Cleota of the State Fire
Marshall's office was notified and
responded to the' scene. The
cause of the blaze is currently
under investigation by the State
Fire Marshal.

St. Joe' (regittration late July-
early August{ to read Mr. Kes
Colbert's July 2, comments on the
Iran vs. U.S.A. World Cup soccer
game titled "Yawn!"
The fact that Mr. Colbert did
not care for the way the people of
Iran celebrated its victory over the
U.S. soccer team is understand-
able. The fact that he does not
care for the game of soccer is fine.
His preference for a 'sport -with
lots of scoring, because it is easy
to do, is also ok. Especially, If you
cannot appreciate .a sport where
defense usually rtles the day.'
However. his'comments such,
as Americans'"o'not like the game
because., "it's not an American
game!" and I 'plying that anyone
who .plays.sice,. is "dainty," are
out of line.
In responsee, we would like to
invite' Mr. Colbert .to,;put 'on- any -
manly pair of shorts and tee;shirt
that ,he 'has and join us in a
friendly. game of soccer. The
fastest growing sport in the U.S.
A sport that requires excellent
physical conditioning and teaches
sportsmanship and teamwork.
We cannot guarantee that any

can guarantee that you will'

"Our Lifetime On Earth"
by Rachel Hall
In loving memory of Mrs. Lots l\'hiifield who died last July.
- Sometimes there aie things that need to be said, but they are unspoken
Cause our hearts that is full of love always get broken.
It's so hard to give up someone so dear, cause there is always lots of sorrow.
Cause there are so many times we don't know how to fice another tomorrow.
And there are always times we feel like life's alone %\hen %te don't know how to pray
Cause the burdens we carry on our hearts are always too hejaV to bear.
But God lets us know he is greater and better than any earthlN friend.
Cause he helps us carry our heas, burdens that's on our hearts until the %ern end

When I'm'" M
around someone
who smokes. it
bothers me. But
after a while, we
all learn to cope
with it.
There are
many things that will kill you
smokers say, so why not let it be
cigarettes. That statement,'if
they were to think "about, is
nearly as dumb as walking
across a busy 'street blind fold-
ed. Doing either of these makes
no sense, but at least when you
walk across the busy street
blindfolded, you have a chance
of not getting hit.
What many people don't
realize is that dying of a smok-
ing-related illness is horrible. I
know this first-hand, because
my grandmother used to smoke.
She smoked for 42 years.
I've heard stories from
smokers of how their parents
and grandparents smoked for
50 years without ever getting ill.
Well, this may be a lie, or they
may be lucky, but my grand-
mother sure wasn't.
Right now, she is at her
house laying in a bed hooked up
to an oxygen machine. She can
barely make it to the restroom
without having to; use her
inhaler. She has emphysema,
asthma. chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease, and a histo-
ry of blood clots.
She has also been in the
hospital over 10 times in the
past seven years, and has had
open heart surgery.
I'm not saying this to scare
anybody. This is what may hap-
pen if someone continues to
smoke. That reminds me of an
old Camel cigarette slogan that
was changed around "I'd walk a
mile for a camel, only if I could
get back."
If you have any questions or
comments, write to "Truth" c/o

Attention all GULF COOUNTIANS S!

The St. Joseph Bay Humane Society wvas incorpo ated as a Not-For-Profit
Corporation on Jan. 2, i998 and received tentative 509 (a)(2) status as a
publicly supported organization exempt from income tax as described in
Internal Revenue Code section 501 (c)(3).
The St. Joseph Bay Humane Society (SJBHS) was formed in the hope that through hard work and sacrifice Gulf Countians could improve
our animal control programs. Believing that the present "Catch & Kill" programs are both ineffective and an affront to Christian principles,
a Humane Society was formed to give Gulf Countians a mechanism through which a more acceptable form of animal control could be
accomplished. An opportunity tq participate in the pursuit of this'goal is extended to all residents of Gulf County. The name "St. Joseph
Bay" was chosen to avoid the notion that the Humane Society was specific to Port St. Joe. While it's true that most of the activity & most of
the membership is in Port St. Joe, it was the intention always to be county wide. We desperately need members in Wewahitchka so that
together we can serve the animal control program there. The job here at the County Pound is so enormous that we just cad.t do more with-
out more active members & volunteers. Please consider' serving our Lord, our county, and our animals in this fashion.
The Humane Society could use your old towels, throw rugs and old blankets. These are used constantly for cleaning animals and are taken
home for laundering. Donat ions of cat, puppy and dog food sometimes result in our getting extended time to obtain adoptions.

If you think you see a lot
of teenagers wearing braces,
you are only seeing a fraction
of those who SHOULD be hav-
ing orthodontic care. Actually
some 90 percent of American
children aged 12 to 17 could
use orthodontic treatment (the
correction of misaligned teeth).
It is recommended that a
child have his or her first ortho-
dontic exam at the age of
seven, and then be checked
periodically, until all the perma-
nent teeth have erupted and
much of the jaw growth has
been completed before apply-
ing braces (if needed).
If braces are recommend-
ed, here are some facts to con-
sider:

The average time a child
has braces is two years. In
general, girls 'mature faster
than boys, so they may be
ready for braces earlier.
Frequent and meticulous
brushing with a fluoride tooth-
paste will prevent white patch-
es under braces (an early sign
of decay).
It is important to avoid
sticky foods, such as caramels,
which can loosen bands and.
brackets, break archwires and
promote decay. ,;

'County Health Coordinating Committee Has 12 Organizations at Meeting

Discusses Plans to Finance "Healthy Kids" Insurance Program; Approximately 872 Under 18 Are Eligible


The July 2nd meeting of the
Gulf County Health Coordinating
Committee was held at the Gulf
County Health Department in
Port St. Joe. Representatives of 12
healthcare-related organizations
were in attendance.
"Healthy Kids" Program
At the meeting, the newly
enacted Florida Healthy Kids
insurance program was reviewed
and discussed at length. Under
this program. Healthy Kids will
provide medical insurance cover-


age to children up to age 18 who
are uninsured, ineligible for
Medicaid, and whose family
income is up to 200% of the fed-
eral poverty level.
The premiums for the insur-
ance will be paid by a combina-
tion of state and federal funds,
local matching monies, and mini-
mal payments (of $15 or less per
child) by families provided the
coverage. During the first year of
the program, state and federal
funds will pay for 95% of the pre-
mium costs with local matching


funds to make up the difference.
Doug Kent, administrator of
the Gulf County Health
Department, estimated that there,
are approximately 872 eligible,
children presently in Gulf County.'
Initial plans by the state call for
insurance to be provided to 200 of,
these children, although it,
appears that, provided local
matching monies can be,
arranged, additional children canr,
be covered. :
"The committee was unani-
mous in Its decision to make


.every effort to raise enough
.matching money to support at
least 400 children in this new
program." said Kent.
,,i "We will be in contact with the
county commission, the school
lboard, and the city council to
request their help with raising the
matching money, but it is our
intent and hope that we can cre-
wate some means of raising most of
the needed money from private
,donations. Creation of a non- prof-
it foundation to do such fund-
raising may be appropriate," he

-pleased that her interest.ln pro-
viding care to patients in need of
physical therapy became a career
decision."
Whitfleld., who has directed
the hospital's Physical Therapy
Department since 1994. went on
to say that, "the addition of
Kimberly. to; our staff continues
the process of expansion of phys-
ical therapy services that we initi-
ated in early 1995."
"It's great to be back home
here in Port St Joe." remarked
Thomas. "Coming back home to
work as a physical therapist was
important to me. because I felt
that I should give something back
to the community which did such
a wonderful job of nurturing and
supporting me while I was grow-
ing up. There's a terrific need for
physical therapy services here,
and I'm glad to be able to make a
positive difference In my own
hometown!"
"Kimberly's appointment
marks one more important step in
the development of our physical
medicine program here at the
hospital," commented Spichael
Stallings, who directs the chiro-
practic clinic at Gulf Pines.
"Our approach here contin-
ues to be a cooperative one. In
which both physical therapy
modalities and chiropractic pro-
cedures can be employed as nec-
essary in order to concentrate
effort on meeting our patients'
needs. Kimberly' will make a won-
derful addition to our staff of


caregivers," he added.


added.
Committee member Mike Hill,
Director of Northwest Florida/Big
Bend Health Councils, pointed
out one potential problem for
smaller counties like Gulf with
the provision of medical services
under the Healthy Kids insurance
program.
He commented, "It is my
understanding that some
Preferred .Provider Organizations
may be bidding on provision of
the coverage in our area. If this is
the case, access to medical ser-
vices may be severely limited
locally with families required to
travel to ,Panama City to see
physicians and other providers of
healthcare services there."
This brought Immediate reac-
tion from committee members
who were v'erv vocal in their opin-
ion that.' G.ulf County residents
should be able to access medical
services ,right here in Gulf
County. rather than being
required, to.go out-of-county.
By unanimous vote, the com-
mittee Instructed Kent and Dykes
to ask that any matching monies
provided from this county to sup-
port the program be sent with the
requirement that covered children
be able to access local physicians
and medical service providers if
they wish to do so.
Applied For Mobile
Equipment Grant
In oher committee business,
it was announced that the Gulf
County Health Department and
Gulf Pines Hospital have prepared
a grant application which, if
approved, would provide for the
purchase of mobile mammogra-
phy equipment to be used to serve
the needs of Gulf and Franklin
counties, and the Mexico Beach
portion of Bay County.
The hospital and the health
department have made the provi-
sion of mammography services
within Gulf County one of their
primary goals for the coming year.
Ambulance Improvements
Shane McGuffin reviewed
some recent enhancements made
to the north Gulf County ambu-
lance service by the county com-
mission. "The north Gulf County
ambulance service is a basic 1ie
support service which, until
recently, has been manned solely


by volunteers. We have now added
a part-time, salaried emergency
technician to supplement the
existing volunteer staffing."
He went on to say that an
offer by Dr. Abdus Khan and
Cypress Medical Clinic to set up a
"part-time" emergency room to aid
in patient stabilization will be
documented so that it can be
reviewed by the state EMS people.
If approved, this could be another
significant improvement for the
Wewahitchka area service.
Additions to Hospital Services
Gulf' Pines Hospital
Administrator Ken Dykes, Sr.
announced that the hospital's
new CT equipment has been
installed and is now fully opera-
tional.
He also announced that the
hospital will, starting this year,
sponsor an annual Health
Excellence Award to be given to
the professional and the layper-
son who have done the most to
advance the cause of good health-
care in Gulf County.
In addition,. Lifetime
Achievement Awards in Health
will be given to deserving persons
from time to time. County-wide
solicitation for nominations for
the awards will begin in August.
"We're really excited about
this new program," said Mr.
Dykes. "We strongly believe that
those people among us who make
extraordinary efforts on behalf of
all of us should be appreciated
and celebrated." A special
community-based panel will
receive nominations and select
the winners who will be given spe-
cial recognition at a community
dinner In their honor in,
November.
Nursing Home Problem
DeAnn Young of Sunrise Bay
St. Joseph Care Center raised a
problem that the nursing home Is
experiencing in ensuring that
guardianship Is established' for
residents without families.
Most residents in this situa-
tion are medically indigent and
there is simply no way to go
through the expensive and time-
consuming process, necessary to
appoint a guardian. It was agreed
that Senator Pat Thomas' office
should be contacted and made
aware of the problem.

STRATEGY/ACTIVITY


How can state government
;t tell today's teenagers to reject
i tobacco use?' That was the'
tt unavoidable' question that was
;t asked whep Florida won the
a nation's first anti-tobacco cam-
paign to be' funded by a settle-
ment with the tobacco industry.
'Now Florida's four month old
Tobacco Pilot Program is offering
an answer to that question. it
can't.
Instead. the S200 million dol-
lar pilot program is asking its
most credible allies-the teens
therriselves-to do the talking for
them.
'Charged in the settlement"
with the challenging goal of
reducing youth tobacco use,
Florida's Tobacco Pilot Program is
asking its younger generation to
make this fight their own, giving
teenagers a leadership role In
what's becoming a cutting edge
campaign against tobacco.
This spring, nearly 600
teenagers from across the state
made history" by "designing' the
i campaign-, .temselL-.;durig.
four-day Teen Tobacco.Summitin.
Haines City. The teens developed
the major advertising theme,
ranked anti-tobacco curriculums,
created a youth advocacy group
'(Students Working Against,
Tobacco) and refined an enforce-
ment' strategy against underage
tobacco sales. Then, on the final
day of the summit, they presented
S their ideas to Governor Lawton
Chiles and n Education
Commissioner Frank Brogan.
The tagline for the teens'
advertising campaign is; "Their
brand is lies. Our brand is Truth.",
The 'pilot program currently
has two websites available for
those who would like more infor-

Psalms 33:12 tells us "blessed is the nation whose Gbd is

p 4Whys. are people, afraid of the Ten Commandments?
These moral teachings are ederd' and valuable. Whabt on

The Bible has been relegated to a very minor giosition in

What does God think of these murders? And all our other

America has become ektremply 'addicted to gambling, in
addition to it's already sordid fascination with beverage
alcohol, wreaking havoc on millions of easily deluded parents
and their families. ine is a mocker, strong drink is raging.
Whoever is deceived thregby ii not wise." (Proverbs 20:1)
God tells us in Psalm 9:17 :haL 'ALt NATIONS that
depart from God will be destroyed.
In America's beginning, God was honored in this nation.
What is the God of America today?
'When the promised Messiah came, those who should
have known, did not recognize the Scriptural Truth. When
the end is near, and He comes for His own, will we also be so
lacking in faith we fail to recognize the occasion?
Is it possible the natural disasters pummeling America,
could be the beginning of God's judgement on our nation?
Truly something to think about!

As Christians we have a promise from God for
eternal life. All of us know our life as a human being
is limited. However, Laura and I enjoy earthly life
and plan to continue for many years. God has
already blessed us with over fifty-one years of a
Christian marriage. When our time comes, we plan
to greet the Lord with joy. Until their, many years
hence we will continue to cherish God's promise.


Dear Counselor: ;
My husband and I have been
married for four years. About'
three months ago, we started hav-7
ing problems in our communica-,
tion with each other.
It seems like we, can't have a
conversation anymore without it
turning into a fight. He says that I
don't listen to what he is saying. I'
have always prided myself on
being a good listener.
My friends at work always'
come to 'me when they have a
problem and I help them solve it.
They seem to think that I am' a
good listener.
I listen to myhusband, but he
never wants to hear what I think
about the situation. What am I
doing wrong? I would appreciate
any help you could give me.
S Thanks,


Not so good a listener?
Dear Not so good listener.
.I think that it is great that
.people at work come to you for'
advice. At times people need help'
.in deciding whatthey should do in
a particular situation. However.'
Ssometimespeoplejust want some-
,oneItoibe a sounding board. That
may just be'what your husband'
wants.. .
ThL e next time you have a con-
versation with him, tiry listening to '
him and concentrating on what he4


is saying. Try not to think of solu-
tions to what he may be saying,
but rather just simply listen.
;You said that he thinks you
don't listen to him. Try reinforcing
the fact that you are listening to
him. This can be accomplished by
listening --to-Ti Teelings and
thoughts and paraphrasing them
back to him.
If you don't understand him
ask questions for clarification.
You could ask something like, "Is
this what you mean?" or "What I
Shear you saying is ." This will
help him to know that you are
interested in what he has to say
and that you are actively listening
to. him.
Try to avoid giving advice. It
may be what the people at work
want, but not what he wants. He
might not want you to solve the
problem, but rather understand it
and how it may be bothering him.
Let him know you care and offer
advice only if he asks for it. The
art of communication is In being a
good listener.
I hope that you will try these
suggestions with your husband. If
you continue to have problems.
the Life Management Center has
professional marriage counselors
available.
