FCPC Extends Shutdown



For An Extra Two Weeks


Management Cites Market Conditions
Work Stoppage; Oriental Market Now


News that Florida Coast
Paper Company will silence the
company's two paper machines
during an inventory reduction
shutdown starting next month
has once again highlighted the
continued instability in the
world's paper industry. ,
Less than ,a .day after
announcing a 30 day production
curtailment during September
due to poor market conditions.
FCPC said the mill will now
extend that shutdown two weeks
halting operations on August 14
rather than September I as previ-
ously released.
"Obviously, the markets are
very erratic and the situation is
changing rapidly," said General
Manager Ferrel Allen. of the con-
ditions that are prompting mar-


ket-related downtime' throughout
the paper industry.
He said current plans are for
the mill to shut down on August
14th. Virtually -all 460 hourly
employees will be affected by the
curtailment.
As previously announced,
FCPC plans to begin scheduled
maintenance on September 9,
recalling ,approximately 160
maintenance employees and a
small number of departmental
support personnel to perform the
work.
Maintenance work is expected
to continue as planned through
September, and start-up is antici-
pated during the first week of
October.
Allen said the shutdown is


The smoke which signals the mill is in production will cease on August 14 as Florida Coast closes for
a projected six week downtime due to economic conditions in the paper industry.


as Prime Reason for
Exporting On Its Own

related to the current worldwide
market conditions that are pro-
ducing high inventories and
falling paper prices. The current
economic downturn In the Asian
economy is credited by Allen as
being a major contributing factor.
Those falling prices are of
,major concern. A very similar
condition existed a year ago when
the mill experienced five and one-
,half months of downtime, crip-
pling the local economy as Gulf
County's unemployment rates
skyrocketed to 20,1o.
City Workshop
Port St. Joe city commission-
ers, Arizona Chemical Plant
'Manager Dave Garrett and FCPC
General Manager Ferrel Allen met
in a workshop session Friday
afternoon to discuss how the tem-
porary shutdown would effect
cost and operations of the city's
wastewater treatment plant.
All three parties form the tri-
partite committee and are con-
trnbutors to the system's opera-
Lions. FCPC is by far the major
Contributor, normally sending
approximately 94.5% of the flow
to the plant. Arizona Chemical
adds approximately 3.4% and
Port St. Joe 2.11%.
Last year. Port St. Joe
reduced operational expenses to
FCPC during the shutdown time
and limited Arizona Chemical's
expense based somewhat on past
charges, rather than the percent-
age of usage.
Garrtt'was requesting simi-
,Jlar arr-a t.gements' during this
shutdown period and a long term
contingency plan should future
extended shutdowns occur.
During a special-called meet-
ing of the board Tuesday after-
noon, city commissioners decided
to follow a similar cost schedule
as was used during last year's
outage.
FCPC would pay 8315,000
per month, Arizona Chemical
S20,000. and the City of Port St.
Joe $10,000 under the fee plan.
Commissioners elected to start
the adjusted fee September I on a
month-to-month basis.
Commissioners David Horton .
and Damon McNair and Mayor
Johnny Linton voted in favor of
the motion, while Commissioners
Jerry Barnes and Charles Tharpe

Jeb Brings His Campaign Team to Town


Gathers Supportof Mostly Democratic Officials at Barbecue Dinner


Republican gubernatorial
candidate, Jeb Bush, drew a
crowd as he stumped his way
through Gulf County Monday.
SOver 200 people gathered at
the Gulf/Franklin Center taking
advantage. of a free barbecue and
offering their support to the Bush
campaign. 7'
It was fitting that Bush pro-
claimed, "Public education is the
highest priority in our state," as
he stood behind the podium at
the first official function in the
newly completed Gulf/Franklin
Annex of Gulf Coast Community
College.


"Public education is.
the highest priority
in our state "


Bush outlined a platform that
would be tough on crime, sympa-
thetic to people's needs, and a
government more in line with our
ability to pay for it.
He envisioned government
working "shoulder to shoulder"
with churches and other not-for-
profit organizations to help solve
many of the state's problems.
Bush stressed the importance
of saying what you're going to do.
then doing what you said you


would do. He pledged to follow
through on his commitment to
the people of Florida..


After Bush's speech, host
Ralph Rish invited area elected
officials and appointees who sup-


port his bid for governor to gather
with him as a show of their sup-
port.

More homeowners in south Gulf County will now have potable
water available. Shown turning the valve on the water main, from

Gaskin of Southeastern Mechanical Contractors; and Jay Rish, pres-
ident of Lighthouse Utilities.


Lighthouse Extends Water

Service- to County Line


Lightfhouse Utilities Com-
pany, Inc. announced this week
that the company-'has..juSt.:-firi-
ished the construction phase of
extending its water mains to the
end of Indian Peninsula and also
to the county line on Highway C-
30.
The latest extension will
essentially cover the entire south'
Gulf County beaches area that is
located south of U.S. Highway 98.
Jay Rish. president of
Lighthouse Utilities Co. Inc. said. -
'This extension enables this com-,
pany to provide quality potable
water to some of the county's
fastest growing unincorporated
areas. I look forward to the chal-
lenge of serving this area with its
water needs as we head into the
next century,"
Rish also added, "I would like
to thank Preble-Rish, Inc. and
Southeastern Mechanical Con-
tractors for the quality jobs they
each did. in engineering and con-
structing this project." He also
thanked Commissioner Warren
Yeager and Chief Administrator
Don Butler for their help and sup-
port of the project.
Water should be available to
the residents of these areas in two
to three weeks, as it will take that
long to get final clearance and
certification from the Florida
Department of Environmental

Ward Ridge Now
Ready to Hook Up
During last week's Port St.
Joe City Commission meeting,
Phillip. Jones, Preble-Rish Inc.
. .engineer, told board members
that tie-ins to the new Ward Ridge
sewer system should begin within
a week-and the time has arrived.
Homes in existence before the
construction project started will
be assessed a $500 tie-in fee, plus
water tap ($200) and sewer tap
($400) to connect into the new
system during the first 12 month
period.
All new homes, vacant lots, or
homes that elect to wait until
after the 12 month period will be
assessed a $2,000 tie-in fee, plus
water and sewer taps.
For further information on
tie-in procedures, residents and
land owners should contact City
Hall.


Every candidate needs the
support of the babies and Bush
doesn't ignore them either, as
he risks a wet shirt.

Once More!

HERE WE GO AGAINI Uncertainties with Florida Coast
Paper Company operations has the community on edge, wonder-
ing what the future holds for them. It's an uneasy feeling, we
can assure you, but one we are not alone In experiencing.
We started the week with things operating full speed ahead,
as usual. Then, the middle of the week a four-week shut down
was announced. Hardly had the ink dried on that announce-
ment before another was prepared and 'waiting In the wings:
"Four-week shutdown extended to six weeks." The tone of the
announcement sounded ominously like the one last year, when
we spent nearly six months on the down side.
WE'RE DEPENDENT ON THE Oriental market for continued
operation and that market is in the slumps, big time, right now.
It's tough, having to depend so much on one market, but it is a
situation beyond our control and we suspect Florida Coast Paper
Company would rather the situation be different, too. We sus-
pect they had rather be running full' speed than to be sitting
around, idle, trying to juggle their'finances in a manner which
would keep them solvent and current with everyone they owe.
They operate from pay day to pay day, just like their employ-
ees do, and it's no fun trying to borrow from Peter to pay Paul.
We remember when the duPonts owned the mill back in the
late 50s, and were operating two and three days a week, or one
or two weeks a month, just to give their employees the chance to
earn a little something to stay together. Things were tough, then.
They are tough nowl But somehow, it will all work dut. '
WE KNOW OF OTHER paper mills which have had a rough
history of operation. There is the experience of our neighbors to
the west, Stone Container, a cousin of ours, but still experienc-
ing down time before Stone came into the picture of ownership.'
There Is Buckeye Cellulose over in Perry, which has also experi-
enced more than their share of down time. Pensacola can attest
to the same story. '
About the only mills which haven't experienced down time
are Bogalusa, La., and Cedar Springs, Ga.. mills operating in a
captive market, producing a specialized sheet for their own con-
verters. We experienced about 20 years of that type market here,
and it felt good! It's not that way anymore, and we can expect
the valleys, along with the peaks.



Political Season
THE POLITICAL SEASON IS sputtering. to a start here in
Gulf county, trying to stir some little bit of interest in the pro-
cess, without much success.
The only two seats, to be decided this year, which drew any
opposition, at all, were the two county commission positions.
Commissioners from Districts 2, and 4 fielded opponents, the
othersamarched back into office with free rides. That isn't as it
should be. Each and every office should have opposition, if for
no other reason, just to keep them alert and on the job.
There is a good chance that we won't even have a second pri-
mary ballot in Gulf County because of lack of participation on
f" -the part of'the candidates.......- -- ... ..
It's been a long time since we have.had such.a slim ballot for
our perusal. There's not even the usual crowd running strictly-to
get the well paying, part time jobs. They're pretty lucrative jobs,
too. We're usually blessed with a plentiful amount of this type
candidate. It's one of the banes of the high salaries paid our
; public servants.
IT LOOKS AS IF most of our political wrangling and arguing
this year will have to be on- a state level. We had a little excite-
ment when a Grand Jury returned an, indictment against state
Representative Jamey Westbrook, right on the eve of closing the
qualification window, in a move so obviously political, it had no
way of being taken seriously.
That' was the only dirty trick of a political nature we had,
even in this non interesting campaign. It couldn't even attract
enough interest to entice someone to qualify for the seat at the
last moment. "-
Jeb Bush has been patiently biding his time to run for gov-
ernor, confident in his chances to get elected to the top govern-
ing seat in the state of Florida. We would imagine that if he
-doesn't make it this time, he had just as well go into gubernato-
rial retirement early, because he will never have a better chance.
Frank Brogan has done an excellent job of keeping his name
in a favorable light among Florida voters for the past four years
and should be no detriment to the campaign at all.

Y2K Is Not A Vitamin!


We've been doing a little "com-
puter' enhancing" here at the
office. Of course, they've asked'me
to stand back as far as I car. It
Didn't take those hardware guys
long to realize I. couldn't help 'em a
lick. .,: '
I saw how serious they Were
going about this upgrade when I
attempted to add a little humor to,
the tedious and, to me, seemingly
boring taskldof keying in and read-
ing out, keyfirg in and reading out,
keying and reading .. I mosed
over to a terminal, made' a little
small talk about the weather, the
Atlanta Braves, the local political
situation and abruptly turned and
squinted hard like right into the
teeth of the very computer they
were hovering over and declared,
"Has that machine said I told any
lies yet?" '
Shoot,- I didn't even get a smile
from the AS 400 retooling crowd.
They were serious about getting
me ready for the next millennium.


U


Funny thing was when I kind'a off-
handed like mentioned the "next
millennium" and my heartfelt
admiration for the way they were
so ardently preparing me-they
stopped in mid screwdriver turn.
"Oh, we're not getting you
ready for the year 2000."
"Not hardly" A. co-worker
chimed In. "There's nothing we can
do about that"
.. "Boy, that's going to be a
mess."
They were 'all shaking their
collective heads in a befuddled,
confused, what-are-we-going-to-do
way.
Now. I'm a little taken back.
SThis team of experts that was
working ninety miles an hour with-
out so much as a glance in my
direction had all come to a com-
plete stop and were mulling over
what I could tell was a serious and
obvious mind-boggling situation.
I leaned in a little closer to
learn more. According to them, the
computer, down there on the
what-year-is-it-line, can't tell the
' difference between 1900 and 2000.
They referred to it almost reverent-
ly as the Year 2000 problem. Or. in
their vernacular, it's the Y2K situ-
ation.


They launched, unaided, into
the dadgumdest discussion I
believe I've ever heard According
to what I could garner from these
on the spot experts, ain't ever
machine gonna be effected the
same. Most are just gonna shut
down. A few could even get
through It unscathed. Some, at
one second past midnight on
December 31, 1999, are going to
have ah internal clock indicate It's
1900. That oughta shuffle a few
records!
Others could possibly erase
every piece of data that's ever been
entered. Many that were pro-
grammed to read only two digits,
such as "98" for 1998 are really in
trouble. Some, I guess, could even
blow up. I made a mental note not
to spend that New Year's Eve at the
office.
I was tempted to chime in,
"Reckon there's a chance some of
them could turn green and do a
few back flips," but remembering,
the humor level of this group and
the seriousness of the subject mat-
ter I held my tongue.
As they continued to shake'
their heads and moan, I had a
semi-serious thought myself. What:
if in all the new-century-change-
over-confusion one of those errant


computers mistakenly adds six-
million dollars to my checking
account? I'd sure hate to have to
take it ..... but I've come to kinda
depend on those machines myself.
'Course. the ones they've got
down at the bank now ain't no
good-they keep putting my
money In everyone else's account!
These fellers had plum quit
working and had launched into the
global effect of the Y2K problem.
Even if we could, make a dent
toward fixing Iit here in America,
we still have to confront the situa-
tion onri a worldwide basis. They
were waving floppy discs. cou-
plings, power surge protectors and
big, thick manuals to punctuate
each new revelation.
I was getting a little frightened.
And I certainly didn't want to
mess up anybody's day. so I fig-
ured I better offer a solution.
"Guys, while you're 'in there'
enhancing simply tell this machine
to get ready for the year 2000.
When you finish here you can
write: a program for all the other
computers."
They broke out in. gales of

My Lost Weekend Leaves Me In The Doldrums


SI'VE LOST AN entire week-,

pened, which is not very condu-
cive to writing a timely column. It
wasn't exactly a "fun" week end;
Sit was just lost
As I told you a couple, of
-weeks ago, I have a little problem
with a kidney. The doctors are
-trying to find exactly what is
wrong and what it will take to re-
pair It I don't know if they are,
having fun in the process, but I
can assure you I'm not!
The process has gone on from
that little session with Dr. Denis
Healey's big, long, muscular fin-
ger to his employing a roto-rooter
and a small piece of pvc drain,
pipe to allow things to operate
wi th some semblance of normal-

That's just what I heard. I
was asleep most of the weekend.
But I did catch up on my

action on my stopped up kidney
without having to cut me open. I
think it's about as bad, whichever
way they gain entry.
I suspect you know the route
they took to access my kidney
without cutting trie open. It
wasn't the Interstate Highway or
Route 661 It was more or less a
back country road which hadn't
been graded for a while. It still is
pretty tender.
I took off for the Surgery Cen-
ter -about 9:00 Thursday momrn-
ing, with every intent of being
back at work by at least 3:00. I
had to change those plans.
Also the next morning, Fri-
day, I had every intention of at


least showing up at the office to
write this little blurb.
,I got up, shaved, ate about
half my breakfast and took a pain
pill. Then I sat down for a minute
in my recliner .. the next thing I
knew, it was noon! I needed' an-
other pain pill, so I took it, deter-
mined to go to the office in just a
few minutes, when lo and behold.
before I knew it the clock said
4:00 o'clock!
A whole day, wasted! .

I THINK THAT doctor gave
me those pain pills, with; direc-
tions to take them, on purpose.
I'm going to ask him about "this


the next time I see him.
Not only does he have a big
finger, he's also devious!
I notice he didn't wait around
after that little bit of minor sur-
gery to explain things to me. He
told Frenchle: but not inel He told
daughter, Catherine; but inot me.
I guess he thought his good looks
would get him by those two wom-
en without tod much argument.
-: I guess I'll just. have to go
back to his office to find out the
real scoop about my condition.
The doctor will have advan-,
"tage of me then. You see, his of-
fice is where he keeps that big
finger. His office is where he
keeps that piece of garden hose
attached to: a, typewriter. If I
cause him too .much- trouble, he
just might find reason to use
A them again!
But, you have to admit, his
actions are a might suspicious!

DR. BOB KING'came in right
after I was taken in the back
room to" put me to sleep. That


was a real test of the sleep potion
they gave me.
I didn't even hear himl
If you have ever been to the
Surgery Center, you know, that
everyone being prepared for sur-
gery is placed in one large room,
with only a curtain dividing you
from everyone else. Still, I didn't
hear him! Imagine that.
I can usually hear Dr. Bob
King, anytime he is anywhere
near, especially when he laughs!
I was told a plastic surgeon
was waiting on him; trying to im-
prove his looks, I reckon.
I don't think either of us was
there for the obvious reason. We
could both use some hair, but we
came away with the smattering of
follicles we happened to have left.

AND, PILLS! YOU wouldn't
believe the pills, I have to take.
Not just the one or two I'm accus-
tomed to ingesting, but I have a
complete variety to take for at
least a week.
One looks like a chocolate


M&M, but it doesn't taste like a
chocolate M&M. It tastes just like
what it Is: medicine
S There's no way I'll remember
to take all these pills, especially
on schedule.
There's little ones, .big ones,
some shaped likeia discus, some
.shaped like a toss pillow, and
-none of them good'.
I believe I could exist on just
the pills I'm having to take, "to
make me comfortable".
I take them by the handfuls.
I'll guarantee you, I shouldn't feel
any pain with all the pain medi-
cation the good doctor assigned
- 'me to take.
I guess It's a cross I'll just
have to bear and live with. But
it's no fun being at the mercy of a
doctor who genuinely enjoys what
he is doing. They tend to stretch
it out.
In my case, the only thing I
have wrong is my kidneys. I
guess the doctor has to concen-
trate on whatever problem he can
find

Jamey Westbrook Lone Democratic

Challenger for District 7 Seat


There will be no Democratic
primary for the House of
Representatives, District 7., Rep.
Jamey and Mrs. Gayle Westbrook
announced on July 24 that there
will be only one "Westbrook" in
this year's election-the incum-
bent.
"Now that the dust has set-
tiled, we believe that having Jamey
,.as the candidate is the right
. course to take," the two said. "Our,
'Intention was to make sure the
'people of this district had good,
S"strong representation."
*" In making the last announce-
finent, Rep. Westbrook re-affirmed
his innocence against federal
'fraud charges handed down last
rweek... .
'Tm not guilty of'taking any-
thing," Westbrook said. "That will
be crystal clear once the judicial
process runs it course."


The first-term legislator said
his campaign will focus on the
many accomplishments achieved
,during the last two years. Among
them are the following: equity pay
raises for, correctional officers-
(competitive area differential),
annual pay raises for all the hard
working men and women,
employed by the state, and 'win-
ning millions of dollars in direct'
appropriations to the local school
boards for ongoing projects. ,
'"When I ran for office in 1996,
I pledged to do two things: bring.
-more jobs into the local; economy
and help the regular, hard work-
ing men and women," said Rep.
Westbrook. "My record shows that
I have done just that." ,
b During his first term as State
* Representative, Westbrook has
been awarded the 1997 Legislator
of the Year Award from the Florida


Sheriffs Association, the Fresh-
man of the Year Award from the
Florida Association of Counties,
and has been .named Legislative
Champion by the Florida
Chamber.
"As I have served you this-first
term; I have been humbled by the
fact that you, the people of this
district, ,saw fit to honor me by
electing me your representative. I
was not certain that I was entire-
ly deserving of such an honor. I
have done my "dead-level best' to
serve you."
"I promised to serve you and
only your interests. I promised to
be available to you. to help in any
and every way possible. These
promises I have kept and will con-

Wewa Awards Garbage Contract


to Environmental Waste Systems


Some of those touring the newly completed Gulf/Franklin Center of Gulf Coast Community College
are shown t;athered outside the facility.


Wewahitchka city commis-
sioners awarded Environmental
Waste Systems their garbage col-
lection contract after bid openings
Monday evening.
Their bid of $9.25 for residen-
tial pick-up, 88.25 for senior citi-
zens. and S18.50 for commercial
pick-up was deemed to be the
best bid by commissioners.
The four year contract is good
through 2002 with any future
price increases based on; the
Consumer Price Index fluctua-
tions.
Commissioners awarded the
contract contingent upon review
by the board's attorney, David
Carl Gaskin.


Fire Phones .
Ward McDaniel approached
the board on behalf of the
Wewahitchka Volunteer Fire
Department, asking that they
continue to finance 30 fire
phones, rather than reducing the
number to 20 as had been dis-,
cussed. .. .
He said the phones were
needed so firemen could commu-
nicate and, coordinate their
response efforts among each
other when fire calls were
received.
Commissioners agreed to see
if the county could help with addi-
tional funds for the phone noting
that the majority of fire calls came
from outside the -city limits. _

Robinson and Pam Harden as the

*Decided to go out for bids for
workman's compensation, general

erage for the city.
Some' discussion was also
directed to the city's charter
dilemma with the question
being-which charter to "follow,
the revised version currently sub-
mitted for state approval or the
old text. .
The board took no actionon
the matter.

Gulf County Beef
Producers Summer
Meal Solutions
As Americans get busier, time
becomes their scarcest resource-
especially when it comes to meal-
time. To lend busy consumers a
hand, beef producers in Gulf
County and across the country
have introduced a new meal solu-
tions center for retail supermar-
kets, "Grillin' USA."
According to research con-
ducted by the Leo Burnett adver-
tising agency on behalf of the
National Cattlemen's Beef
Association, only 29 percent of
meal preparers check recipes for
ingredients before a shopping
trip.
"More and more consumers
are streamlining meal preparation
and cutting back on meal pre-
planning," says Polly Golden,
Executive Director, Florida Beef
Council. This means they make a
lot of their decisions at the gro-
cery store. In. fact, 38 percent of
purchases are unplanned. That's
why we're positioning this beef
promotion in retail outlets."
The country's top 17,500
supermarkets have received the
"Grillin' USA" recipe centers,
which are funded 'by the $1-per-
head beef checkoff. The centers
help consumers spice-up their
summertime meal with four
mouth-watering recipes using the
seven-bone chuck steak, the top
round steak; the chuck shoulder ',.
',steak and the top sirloin steak.
Cooking instructions and approx-
iimate cooking times are provided
mfor each recipe.
In addition to recipes, the
meal center offers valuable food
safety information and simple tips
.for grilling a perfect steak every
time.
"The promotion meets both
beef industry and consumer
'needs," says Golden. "The chuck
:and the round are economical,
but need more merchandising
,assistance during the summer
months. It benefits everyone to
!show that steaks from these cuts
can be quick, easy and delicious."
Here is a recipe that's sure to
make your meal a special event.

Colorado

Jones Retires

After 33 Years
Last week, the Gulf Pines
Hospital staff celebrated the
retirement of one of its longest
term employees, Housekeeping
Supervisor Colorado Jones.
"It's hard to think of Colorado
not being here to take care of
things," said Housekeeping
Director Willie Alexander. "She's a
caring person who has made a
significant contribution to the
patients of this hospital through
her years of service." ,
Jones started working at the
hospital in 1954, when it was
known as .the Port St. Joe
Municipal Hospital. She left the
hospital to work elsewhere in
1956, but then returned to to stay
in 1963.
Jones, who has, at various
points, worked in the dietary,
nursing and housekeeping
departments, remembers the city
selling the hospital- "I was a part
of renaming the hospital from
Municipal Hospital to Gulf Pines
Hospital. I've worked here at the
hospital off and on.for 33 years or
more and I've seen a lot of
changes. I'm glad to have been a
part of it all."
Gulf Pines Administrator Ken
Dykes, Sr. commented,,"Colorado
is one of those people who Is faith-
ful and steady and who will be
greatly missed. I believe that she
has cared deeply about the hospi-
tal and its patients and that she
has contributed in a significant
way to the hospital's tradition of
caring service. Her retirement
party will be a celebration of her
accomplishments, but were sure,
going to miss her!"
As usual, Ms. Jones is taking
the whole thing ii stride, saying
"After I retire, I plan, on doing

School Board
Special Meeting
At a special, school board
meeting Tuesday evening, the ten-

unanimously. Also, lunch prices
were raised from the '97-'98 price
per a student lunch of $1.50 to
$1.75 and a adult lunch raised
from $2.25' to '$2:50. This
increase will bring closer revenue
alignment and assist with the
deficit in the foodservice program.

"Smoking's J
Bad Umkay."
That line is from
the show South-
park.. Although
Southpark has
nothing to do
with tobacco.
(and in itself the show has
caused controversy), it reminds
me of the effect adults have on
kids and teens smoking.
Mr. Mackey, the school's
counselor, was telling the kids
how drugs and smoking was
bad. Naturally. the kids made
crude jokes and paid no atten-
tion. That scene depicts reality
In classrooms today.
In my opinion, maybe 15b'
of the time kids listen to what
adults tell them about tobacco
and drugs, and maybe only 50%
comprehend and practice what
they learned. The system in
which tobacco and drug educa-
tion needs to change.
S.W.A.T. Is working on sev-
eral projects that are youth-led.
Each of these Is designed to get
teens and children alike to lis-
ten. comprehend. and act
responsibly when faced with
tobacco at school and In the real
world.
For years now, schools,
states, and even the government
has tried to hinder the preva-
lence of tobacco use among
youth. "Just say no" for example
was an Ideal way they thought
to stop kids from smoking.
That was a great slogan, but
if you think about would it have
any affect on the way kids react
in situations mostly Involving
other teens. Those three words
are just about as effective as
"Smoking's bad. Umkay."

MEDITATIONS OF A
Q(ountr g reacrher

By LOWELL F. ADAMS
Are You Holy?
Whosoever is born of
God doth not
commit sin...
I John 3:9

'ITHE BIBLE is sometimes hard for us to
understand, even when we study it and "try" sincerely
to know what God expects of us. But we are instructed
to "rightly divide the Word of Truth" (II Tim. 2:15).
When I became a Christian by exercising my faith
and trusting Jesus as Lord and Savior, at age eleven, I
assumed to be holy meant to never be guilty of any sin.
But as I grew and tried to be "holy" I soon realized that
I would never be holy in the sense of being perfect.
This was a great disappointment to me, and for a
long while I considered myself backslidden and "lost."
But as I studied God's Word, and with the help of
others who knew God and His Word better than I, I
began to better understand what God expected of me.
In this same book of First John, in Chapter 3,
verse 20, God tells us to not be discouraged when Satan
gets the better of us. He says "If our heart condemn us,
God is greater than our heart." Jesus is the only person
born of woman in this world, who ever lived sinless.
So, theri, how can we be '"holy" when we find we
sometimes slip up and commit sin? God looks at our
heart-our intentions. He tells us that as we think in
our heart, so are we. I am sincerely trying to live to the;
glory of my Heavenly Father, although I sometimes
miss that high mark, and let Satan trip me up. But
God looks with favor on my sincerity of trying.
"Jesus is the propitiation for our sins" (I John 2:2).
Like a mother who bathes and makes her baby sweet
and clean, even though she will have to do it again and
again, Jesus does the same for you and me, day after
day. You and I live in a sinful body. The continual
desire of the flesh is to sin. God knows if, in our heart,
we are striving to live righteously. If we do happen to'
sin, the sacrifice of Jesus' blood covers our sins. God
looks upon us as sinless, because of Jesus. ,
If you are a Christian, and in your heart you are
striving to live holy, you are "holy" in His eyes.

Neighbors
SIn Proverbs 27:10 we
find, "Better is a neighbor
who is near than a brother
who is far away."
This is not to criticize
our "blood relatives." It is
simply to say that we all
need neighbors. There is
something: that draws us
Together when sickness or
Oliver F. Taylor death invades our neigh-
Visitation Minister, First borhood. This is a first
United Methodist Church
response.,
Secondly, we call our relatives and friends out-%
,side the neighborhood. As humans we need support
of others. There is a line in a song which goes, "peo-
ple who need people are the luckiest people in the
world." We should never isolate ourselves from oth-

: Our churches are communities of faith. These
people become our neighbors in Christ. Let us thank
God for our neighbors who help make our lives com-
plete.


Note of Thanks
We would like to express sin-
cere thanks and appreciation for
the kindness and love shown to
our family during the hospital
stay and loss of our mother. Mrs.
Oma Burrows.
:Your kindness was over- ,
whelming. The generous expres-
sions of love, prayers, visits, calls,
cards. flowers, and food were
deeply appreciated.
A special "Thank You" goes to
the staff of the Gulf Pines Hospital
and Dr. Poonal for making Mama
as comfortable as possible. Thank
you also to the Highland View
Baptist and Oak Grove Assembly
of God churches for their prayers
and the delicious and abundant
food.
Thank you. Brother Dave and
Brother Judd, for everything. May
God richly bless each of you. We\
are truly thankful to live in so fov-
ing a community.
In Christian love.

The curious habit of tongue
thrusting, which some dentists
call reverse swallowing or
immature swallowing, can
result in forcing the front teeth
outward or a "buck tooth" con-
dition.
Though we are not usually
aware of it, the tongue plays an
active role in chewing and
swallowing food, continually
moving the food around and
finally shoving it backward
down the throat. Some children
develop the habit of thrusting
the tip of the tongue forward
until it is pressing against the
upper front teeth.
(To see what tongue thrust-
ing feels like, place the tip of

until it is pressing strongly,.
against your front teeth.) ;
The tongue is capable of'
giving quite a strong push
which, if repeated many times
a day, can eventually move the.
front teeth out of place. There,-
are devices which dentists can
use and patient therapy and
training to help stop tongue
thrusting-but stopping is a
must if teeth straightening is to
be successful.

Cooler Days


Ahead for


Gulf Pines Hospital
Administrator Ken Dykes. Sr.
announced this week that the
hospital has acquired, and is
presently in process of installing,
a new air conditioning system for
its In-patient wing.
"I don't think that we've ever
done anything with as much
whole-hearted support and
enthusiasm as we've had for this
project," said Mr. Dykes. 'The
hospital's original air conditioning
system had grown antiquated,
inefficient, and almost impossible
to maintain, especially given the
brutal kind of summer heat we've
exp"rlenced this year."
The new system will allow
each patient room to be individu-
ally temperature controlled. A
patient in one room can be using
the heating, while a patient in
another room uses the cooling.
."That's a significant improve-
ment over our old system, which
required that the whole patient
wing be either heated or cooled,
all at one time," said Bobby
Kopinsky, the hospital's mainte-
nance director.
"*Furthermore, when the new
system is In place, we will be able
to completely replace the entire
heating/cooling unit in any
patient room within Just a few
minutes. This will prevent anyone
from being significantly discom-

First Potential Storm of Season Stirs Awake


Your i jtL.,
Being fully prepared is key
here in the "Sunshine State"
WOhere storms, hurricanes and
holen~ th'efr can occur regular-
lv. Besure you take the time to
plan ahead so you and your fami-
ly stay safe In case of an emer-
gency.
As the first of its "Storm
Inform" series for the season,
Florida Power offers these tips for
you to keep in mind:
Pre-Season-before a storm
threatens your area:
A good "rule of thumb" to use
when planning is to prepare as
you would for a two-week camp-
ing trip where you must be self,
sufficient.,
/ Create (or inventory/
update) an emergency supply kit
to help you save valuable, time
later. Remember, your supply kit


should be made up of everything
you need for at least two weeks.
I/ Review your insurance pol-
icy and include an extra copy of it
in your supply kit along willh
;extra copies of any other iinpoer-"
'tant paperwork. You may need
this Information In case of dam-
age or injury, and you could have
trouble getting the originals from ,
your safe deposit box.
V/ Review your evacuation
plan and make a decision about
where you will stay if you do need'
to leave your home and be sure to
let family and friends know of
your plans. Try to plan to stay
with friends or relatives in a safe
area since shelters could be
crowded or even full.
If you don't have to evacuate,
invite others to stay with you.
During a major storm, it's; much
easier to be witLh .others around
you. Don't forget to include your

phones or phones with answering
machines built in won't work
without electricity. You will need a
traditional analog hone.
If a storm threatens your area:
/ Without electricity, gas
pumps won't work, so be sure to
fill, your tank early, well before a
hurricane warning is issued. Also
check your supply of cash since
ATMIs may be inoperable and
credit card transactions not pos-
sible if the electric service is out.
/ Remove any items outside
your home or business that may
become airborne in strong winds
or securely anchor what you can-
not take Inside. Stock up on sup-
plies like plywood. duct tape and
any hardware needs.
After a Storm:
/ Depending on the extent of
the damage and rescue opera-
tions, it may not be safe to return
to your home immediately.; Pay
attention to' notices issued by
your local authorities.
If your power Is out follow-
ing a storm and you must cook
food with 'Sterno or charcoal,
remember to do so outside in a
well-ventilated area. An accumu-
lation of carbon-monoxide fumes
indoors can be deadly.
/ If. possible, avoid using
candles-using a camping lantern
is safer. If you must use candles.
remember that open windows and
gusty winds can knock them over
or blow flammable materials into
them, so be careful about where
you place them.
/ During post-storm clean
up, don't pile debris on the road
or near utility poles or other elec-
trical devices. Doing so only ham-
pers the' restoration process by
making it difficult for repair crews
to access power lines.
RighIt now:
/ If you haven't already done
your' pre-season planning, do so.

V Also, sign up for a first
aid/CPR class. Check with your

tion department or the American

Taking aordon
Hoand
Kid Fishing
Part 1 Planning the Expedition
When you take a kid fishing, be prepared for one thing--com-
munication. It's a great opportunity to listen and communicate
with your youngster, and It will be an experience you'll both trea-
sure for a lifetime. It's a chance to talk about nature, his or her
school, their friends, things they like or dislike ... you've got the idea
. plus it's building a foundation that will keep that youngster
focused on this great American sport for many years to come. Make it
the most pleasurable outing you can imagine for the youngster.
Don't try to prove to them that you are a great angler, who catch-
es big fish all the time. Emphasize that fishing is purely fun, catching
is a bonus And it doesn't matter that the fish may be small ones. All
the kid really wants is to catch something! This is the best time to
begin instilling good conservation habits in your budding new angler
by teaching them about "catch and. release" and returning the fish
carefully to the water. Or, if the fish are to be kept, keep just enough
for din.v.: .l
Plan your trip to some place that's easily accessible and that is
sure to produce some catching ... a city park pond stocked with trout
or panfish, a fishing pier, or even a pay-per-catch pond or lake that's
heavily stocked. If you're totally in doubt as to where to go fishing, call
your local state game and fish department offices. Explain to them
your desire to introduce your youngster to the sport of fishing. They
should he more than happy to point. you in the right direction.
"My first fish was caught off an ocean pier, at. age 4," says Gordon
Holland, co-founder of the Hooked on Fishing International. "I don't
remember too many details about the trip riow, but it was a great
experience and I've been hooked ever since."
When you plan that first trip for a youngster, it's very important
to make it a short, hut exciting adventure. A child's span of attention
can be, fleeting, so make it only a two or three hour outing.. long
enough to catch some fish, but not long enough for the child to
become bored. Usually a morning trip is preferable. The fish bite
better and the kids have more fun. Try to pick a sunny day with
moderate temperatures .... and don't forget to take along some
sunscreen!
Remember, catching is the key. Target your outing for the
easiest-to-catch species . bluegill, crappie, planted trout,
etc. Don't expect that youngster to enjoy sitting there
trying to catch a bass on a plastic worm. A bunch of
worms or nightcrawlers. or the numerous prepared
trout floating baits are the answer to productive
fishing for the
smaller species.
Most any fish will .
bite these live baits,
and there's nothing
more exciting to a
child than having
something tug on his or
her fishing line, and feel
that vibration of the, fishing
rod, or to just see the bobber dis-
appear underwater from the efforts of a
feisty sunfish. Herein lies the magic of your child's first fishing experience!
Speaking of memories don't forget your camera. The pictures you
will take on this day will likely become priceless mementos. If at all possi-
ble, try to get a couple of shots of the two of you together.
And, when next season comes around, be sure to sign up that young-
ster in one of the more than 1,100 Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World and
Tracker Marine Kids All-American Fishing Derby, events sponsored nation-
wide, in all 50 states, by Hooked on Fishing International, and staged by
local clubs and organizations, state and federal agencies or parks and
recreation departments.
In our next installment, Part 2, The Journey, will feature information
on tackle, bait, bobbers, snacks. etc., surely designed to make it an enjoy-
able outing for the youngster. You're building a foundation for your future
fishing partner. Do it right! For more information on the Kids Derby pro-

New School Year Will Bring Exciting Change


Written by Sara Joe Wooten, Dir.
of Curriculum, Gulf Dist. Schools
The 1998-99 school year will
begin August 7 for all students.
There have been many new
changes which will enhance each
student's education-
The elementary curriculum
has been strengthened with the
addition of Power Writing, Fast
Track Reading and the Sony edu-
cation devices which may be
checked out by -parents to help
strengthen reading skills at home
.for students in grades one and
two. Training for parents will be
provided by the district.
Also, Port St. Joe Elementary
School will be piloting the Saxon
math series which has already
been adopted by the other two ele-
mentary schools. Music will be
taught at all three elementary
schools.
Port St. Joe Middle School
will also be utilizing Power Writing
and piloting Saxon math.
Wewahitchka Middle School will
continue utilizing Saxon math


School Days
It is hard to believe, but
school will be starting very soon.
So soon, in fact, that I started to
title this "School Daze!"

WES has been a busy place,
even through the summer. We
hosted a regional reading work-
shop for three days, AIMS science
for four days. Stavros for one day
and had our first summer school
remediationi project for three and
one half weeks. All were success-
es and hopefully more will be on
the agenda for next summer too.

Mr. Wooten and his staff are
looking forward"to a great year.
Also, thanks to Mr. Wooten and
the cooperation from GCI, the
inmates and Mr. Wooten beauti-
fled the school and grounds. Be
sure to notice the gorgeous mural
painted on the wall ball court.


and improving writing skills. The
Accelerated Reader, which is cur-
rently used by both schools, will
received renewed emphasis.
Both high schools will provide
opportunities for additional elec-
tive courses. "Water Safety", a
new course, will be taught at Port
St. Joe High by the Coast Guard
Auxiliary. Wewahitchka High
School will be implementing a
new program, "Technology
Studies", in a new technology lab.
Both high schools will offer
students the opportunity to take
advantage of dual enrolling in The
Florida High School. The Florida
High School offers on-line courses
for students who desire to be
challenged and receive college
credit. Students will need to see,
their guidance counselors for
more information. Specific criteria
must be met in order to enroll.
There is no charge for approved
courses.
New Computer Curriculum
Cooperation Labs will be installed
at Port St. Joe High School, Port
St. Joe Adult/Alternative School,

School District

Asks Help In

Keeping Kids Safe
Written by Sara Joe Wooten, Dir.
of Curriculum, Gulf Dist. Schools
Each year, the issue of keep-
ing our students safe is a real
concern. This is especially true at
the elementary level.
Additional fencing has been
erected at Port St. Joe Elem-entary
and at Wewahitchka Elementary.
The intent of the fencing is to pro-
tect our students from outsiders
wandering on campus without the
knowledge of anyone in, the office.
We are requesting ALL visi-
tors. including parents, other rel-
atives and community members,
sigh in with personnel in each
school's office when you come on
campus.
If you need rto check your ,:
child out of school or to deliver.
something to him/her, you must,
go through the office. By doing
this. school officials know who is
on campus and classes are riot.'
unduly disrupted.
We appreciate your coopera-'
tion in keeping our students safe
while they learn.



Open House
Highland View Elementary
School will be holding open house
for all students on Thursday,
August 6, from 12 noon to 1:30
p.m. Students and parents may
meet with teachers at this time.
