Lord & Sons, Inc. ApparentLow i Bdder

$4,172,000 On Port St. Joe Elementary School Renovation Project

During the Tuesday afternoon board meeting, four bids
were opened for the proposed new construction of a 24
classroom building and additional renovations to Port St.
Joe Elementary school by Bayne Collins, architect. Bids
fluctuated from the apparent low bid by Lord & Sons, Inc. of
$4,172,000 to the highest bid of $4,822,000. There were two
alternates to the bids which included asbestos removal and
walkway covers.
Collins will review the low bid proposal to ensure all nec-
essary items are intact, and then the recommendation to
approve this bid will be heard by the board at the 9:00 a.m.
meeting on August 11th.
The low bid proposal falls within the $4.3-4.4 million
estimated; however, the bid did not include a paved parking
lot/turn around area and the two alternates which total
over $380.000. The paved parking lot/turn around has been
put on hold until a decision is made with the city commis-
sioners on the best alternative route to transport students
to and from school. The original parking lot/turn around
was estimated to cost approximately $100.000. The new
Port St. Joe Elementary school will be funded by the half

cent sales tax which was activated the middle of last year,
as well as the Classroom First monies totaling an estimated
$1.7 million dollars.
The acceptance of the bid and the beginning of con-
struction will take at least one month and then the project
will take 450-460 workable days. The construction plans
beyond the new 24 room classroom wing include: re-roofing
the gymnasium, cafeteria, and main/administrative build-
Sing. media center retrofitting and rebuilding, as well as
demolition of the existing back wing of classrooms and
approximately 10 classrooms in the main building.
In other news, Superintendent Kelley proposed an
administrative salary schedule that was approved, and pre-
sented the results of a comprehensive safety inspection
denoting all the safety deficiencies of the area schools.
Problems were noted and the board has requested an
updated list in 60 days of what has been repaired. Kelley
also reported that all open positions were filled except one,
an aide position. Further more, teachers and administrators
enjoyed a motivational speaker% and lunch prior to the
school board meeting on Tuesday.

Emphatically "NO!"

"HOW MANY TIMES DO WE have to say 'no' to casinos?"
That was a very timely headline on a Tallahassee Democrat
editorial recently. The Seminole Indian nation was pressuring
G6v. Lawton Chiles to make a deal, taking the question to a
'higher authority', supposedly, in order to get the answer they
The Indians are wanting to put in gambling machines and
games of chance in plush casinos so they. can separate people
from their money in comfort. Several times, the people of Florida
have emphatically said 'NO' to the question of whether to allow
the casinosto be built and operate in the confines of the state.,
How niany.times'do we have to say it?
.-.Once- should be enough to convince proponents of casino
gambling that we don't want it in Florida, period!
We have enough shady activities allowed in Florida, now, to
serve our purposes without the gambling casinos operating. We
have horse racing, dog racing, jai alai, harness racing, etc. That
should be enough!
HOW MANY TIMES WOULD we have to say 'yes' for casino
gambling to feel it had a mandate to operate? Probably, just
once If once would approve casino gambling for the future, why
isn't the answer 'no' considered equally as emphatic?
The Seminoles have .made the state a big-hearted offer of 45
percent of their gambling profits to allow them to operate. An of-
fer of 45 percent tells you that they are making a killing, at the
expense 6f the people; people who can't afford to sustain losses
such as-these.
Indian nations have bought tracts of land in close proximity
to I-10 in Jackson county to locate giant casino theme parks
solely on the off-chance that the residents of the state will per-
mit them to build and operate.
OTHER STATES, WHICH HAVE been coerced into allowing
casino gambling have had second thoughts. Some of the casinos
are even going broke for lack of use. Florida allowed a crack in
its resolve to keep casinos out, when it allowed the lottery to op-
erate. Now, some of the shine has faded off this game said to be
for the benefit of education.
There-is no reason to open the doors further-especially
when the people have said "no" firmly and repeatedly.

Need Second Look

BACK IN THE 1930'S, GULF COUNTY voted to give St. Joe
Paper Company a tax free hiatus for a number of years in order
to entice them to locate their paper mill and business complex in
Port St. Joe. The county did, and it worked. St. Joe Paper Com-
pany located what was then an economic plum here in little Gulf
County, the envy of larger counties throughout the state for
many years. The firm was to become one of the premiere opera-
tions in the state of Florida and destined to become the largest
private land owner in the entire state.
It wasaa good trade-off.
Gulf County traded 15 years of rough times for a number of
years of prosperity and solidity. It created a small county and a
community which becamie'the envy of every small county M"Flor-
ida. It had all the attributes of small town life along with the fi-
nancial base to have whatever the town wanted. within reason.
Small towns everywhere cornered our officials and asked the
question, "How do you do it?"
NOW, THE COUNTY COMMISSION is toying with the idea of
asking county voters the same question all over again. They're
toying with the idea of including on the ballot this November, the
question of whether or not citizens are in favor of some kind of
tax relief as an enticement for a manufacturing firm locating
here, in exchange for some kind of financial relief.
K It worked well once before so it ought to work well once
again. It hurt us to forgive taxes for that period of time. We could
have used them. Heck, we needed them! But, it was prudent, in
the long run, for us to suck, it up and do without for a short
while, In order to get the jobs located here.-
It was a good trade-off then and it should be,once again.
One Incentives Committee member told the commission, "If
you. don't have tax abatement, you don't get a second look from
business prospects wishing to locate in the county."
We need that second look. We need. all the breaks we can
get, and tax incentives are probably the most effective tool we
have in order to attract new business. ,

topics. Let me tell you, I'm the
most conservative guy that's ever
come down the pike. Ask my wife!
I don't want to spend "no money"-

I can tell you what Impressed
S me the most. It wasn't the multi-
million dollar planes, the military
precision by which the base obvi-
ously operated or the mind bog-
gling technical skills apparent
everywhere we turned.- No sir! The
thing that got my. attention was the
young, eager eyes. .
I saw them on the flight line as
they displayed "their" plane. I
sensed them in the classroom
where they soaked 'up every scrap
of knowledge. I stared into them as
they passed .on their way' to a
"cranked up" F-15, I watched the
sweat stream 'by them under the
blistering sun and the withering
weight ofthe full field gear.
I saw the joy and the pride and
the respect leaping from them.
I forgot for a moment the
drive-by shootings, the teenage
drug busts, the young boys on trial
for killing their parents, the "hey-
man-I'm-just-drifting" scene
We don't get to hear from the
good ones too often. Thank God,
they are still there!
And it is of them I will dwell
every time I pass through the base.

vidual face from General Rubus on

it will be thirty years before I get a.
chance to see them again

Send Message: "No More of That."

Dear Editor:
What a treat to see the DLxie
Theatre (In Apalachicola) again :
bringing back fond memories of..
wholesome entertainment and'
displaying fine local talentsIll
The play "Sylvia" on .Friday
evening was 'just the opposite,
with the script full of vulgarity
and degradeness. Besides; a cer-
tain section seemed to start an
applause at the most disgusting
parts, something like a mob psy-
chology effect.
Reflecting on the episode, it
seems that each person should do

his or her part to get back uplift-
ing entertainment befitting our
God-given dignity. If each person
had just walked out of the the-,
atre, the message "NO MORE OF
THAT" would be loud and clear.
Hopefully, the marvelous act-
ing and singing of Charles Leader,
Dixie Parrington, Maureen
McCarthy, and Tim Sherridan will
be given opportunities to promote
good-not evil; in the future.

garbage collection missed break-

He credited the combination effort
of recycling and conventional dis-

Healy stated the city's com-

suggested that some increase to,
commercial users should be in

cial users are responsible for one-
half of the city's garbage. yet pay

Chain Pickerel Easy to Catch

Freshwater -anglers are likely
to keep largemouth bass and
bluegill at the top of the list of
favorite species, but for a different
trip, they may want to give chain
pickerel a try.
Fisheries biologists say chain
pickerel, which are also called
Jack, jack fish, duck-billed pike
and green pike, are found, in vir-
tually every waterway throughout
Florida,, with the exception of the
Myakka and 'Peace rivers in the
southwestern part of the state,
and throughout most of the east-
ern Uni*td States and' into
Chain .pickerel' weighing two
to three-pounds are common, but
they do get larger. The Florida
record is a 5.75 pound fish from
Wrights 'Creek, a small creek that
feeds into' the Choctawhatchee
River. The world record, for the.
toothy, torpedo-shaped species is
a 9.38 pound fish, caught, in
Georgia in 1961.
VMost anglers who catch chain
pickerel usually are casting lures
or live shiners for largemouth
bass. One angler who can. catch

chain pickerel with predictable
regularity is John Shouppe of
Cottondale. Shouppe throws
crawfish-colored, five inch Ra-
pala-type lures in panhandle
rivers and creeks.
Shouppe says the best time to
fish for chain pickerel, as well as
other freshwater fish, is around
the full moon.
"You need to fish three or four
days before the full moon until
three or four days after," he said.
"But if they're not in the mood to
hit, you're wasting your time.
They're not gonna hit anything."
Shouppe loves to fish the nar-
row Chipola River, near
Marianna, where he puts out a
seven foot log chain as a drag,
and that allows him to fish both
banks' as he slowly drifts down
the river in his 14 foot boat. There
are literally dozens of creeks else-'
where in the panhandle where he
says similar tactics will work.
Wherever you fish for chain
pickerel, Shouppe says, "You have
to retrieve your lure real slow with
a steady .retriever." In clearer

Learn Not To Burn-The Suncreen Story

"Don't forget your sunscreen!"
That's the message of Florida
dermatologists despite recent
controversy over the effectiveness
of sun-blocking products and
their ability to protect against
skin cancer.
"Studies have 6,hown that
sunscreen definitely helps pre-
vent non-melanoma skin cancer,"
says 'Jacksonville dermatologist
Charles V. Perniclaro, M.D. "In
the .U.S.,alone, there are more
than a million cases of 'non-
melanoma each year."
As research and studies con-
tinue the quest for more and more
effective ways to prevent skin can-
cers of all kinds, dermatologists
remind patients that sunscreens
are currently the best protection
"Sunscreen protects against
ultra-violet light, but not visible
light or other wavelengths," says
Dr. Perniclaro. "And since we
don't know what specific wave-
length of sunlight- causes
melanoma, we would have to
screen out all light, which present
sunscreens do riot do."
So, dermatologists suggest
that people. especially those with
fair complexions avoid the midday
sun; wear protective clothing
whenever possible. Including a
wide-brimmed hat to protect the
nose and ears; and when in the
sun, to remember to use a sun-
screen of SPF 15 or higher.

"The increase In melanoma
skin cancer in people who use
sunscreen is happening because
those people are usually fair-
skinned and at higher risk," notes
Dr. Perniciaro.
And, since melanoma may be
caused by those rays that sun-
screen does not block, fair-
skinned people must be especial-
ly vigilant about using the other
precautions mentioned above.
"Damage from sun exposure
is cumulative," says Dr.
Perniciaro. "Medium or darker
complexions are less at risk, as
are those people who have a base
tan but who have not had sun-
burn. Sunburn increases cancer
Dermatologists caution that
sunburn and long-term sun expo-
sure is risky for all skin types.
"Don't develop a false sense of
security and think you can have
continuous, long-term exposure
and not suffer skin damage Just
because you use a sunscreen,"
says Dr. Perniclaro. "Sunscreen
does not block out all of the sun's
light, plus its effectiveness can be
reduced by swimming and per-
Melanoma, the most serious
form of skin cancer, must be
caught early.

Storm Tips for

Senior Citizens

A major consideration when
you and your family plan for
storms and hurricanes is medical
needs. Steps need to be taken well
in advance for seniors and those
who rely on 'vital medical equip-
ment and supplies. It is important
to keep in mind anyone who has
special requirements.
As part of its Storm Inform
series, Florida Power offers these
suggestions to help you plan
before a storm or hurricane
,threatens. -
If you or someone in your
home is dependent on medical
equipment that requires electrici-
ty, it is important for you to make
arrangements to have auxiliary
power available for several days to
prepare for unavoidable outages.
Your medical care provider should
provide you -with information on,
the appropriate back-up equip-
ment needed for your condition in
emergencies. Some sources of
auxiliary power include portable
generators, batteries, and a bat-
tery charger..
If you require transportation
assistance during an evacuation,
register in advance with the Civil
Defense and Office of Emergency
Management in your county.
To prepare for outages, it is
wise to have plenty of fresh bat-

teries for flashlights and radios.
If you have a gasoline-pow-
ered electric generator, use it only
in well-ventilated areas and only
plug in in dividual appliances.
Never connect a generator to a
wall outlet of your home or build-
ing's electrical system that
can cause damage to your equip-
ment and can be a, life-threaten-
ing danger to your family, neigh-
bors, and repair crews by energiz-
ing the power lines in your neigh-
borhood. Be sure to have an ade-
quate fuel supply for your genera-
tor and manage consumption by
running it only for a few hours at
a time.
Prepare a list of essential
items you would need in. case you
are evacuated from your home'
and have them readily available.
Some of these items could include
prescription drugs, heart and
high-blood pressure medications,
insulin, contact lenses/supplies,
extra eyeglasses and denture

Fishing Report
July 26 August 11
The great run of ling has ended and we are in the normal cycle of find-
ing one here and there, where you least expect to. :
The Spanish are so large they are hitting king rigs in the buoy line
early in the morning and late afternoon. The kings are few in numbers.
but large In size.
Offshore fishing is still producing good catches of snapper and
grouper. The weather is moving into a normal late summer pattern-
watch out for severe lightning and rain showers with wind. A lot of them
hampered the weekend fishing with high seas and numerous squalls.
The kings and Spanish should be hitting good this week. Also look for
schoolie dolphin.

Headed to Nationals
The St. Joe Sluggers. pictured above, achieved an athlete's dream-
to compete on a national level in their particular sport. This group of
young ladies played local league ball through the regular season of soft-
ball. Beginning the first of the summer they tried out for tournament ball,
which would hone their softball skills to a higher level. Playing together
for the first time this summer, they placed second in the state tournament
held in Tallahassee In July. They also placed second in the Panama City
tournament July 25th.
Assured of at least four games at national level, the team will play the
first day of the tournament. This Friday they will participate in a parade
of athletes preceding the tournament, which is being hosted by Roswell.
The team and its coaches extend a warm thank you for the out-
S standing support the community has extended to them.

Flossing may be a new
subject for many persons.
Most people seem to believe
that a good brushing is suffi-
cient, just as they may believe
that a six month check-up can
prevent cavities. As most
adults (who display their den-
tist's handiwork when they
open their mouths) can attest,
cavities still appear even
though the teeth are brushed
and a dentist is seen on a reg-
ular basis.
One of the best solutions
to persistent cavity problem is
to floss. Here's why: Even the
best brush cannot completely
remove plaque BETWEEN the

Car and Boat Safety During

the Summer Storm Season

Planning ahead is the key to
safety in any type of emergency,
and when it comes to electrical
storms or hurricanes, it is critical
that not only your family is safe,
but also that your personal prop-
erty is secure. As part of its
"Storm Inform '98" series. Florida
Power Corporation offers the fol-
lowing tips to help protect your
car and boat, as well as the lives
of others.
Car Safety Tips
*. Cover your vehicle, or better
yet. park it inside a garage.
*Evacuation may become
necessary, so fill your gas tank
well in advance to avoid long lines
and possible gas shortages.
During an evacuation, routes can
become congested causing you to
have long waits in traffic. And
remember, gas pumps will not
operate without electricity.
S *Pack the following emer-
gency supplies in your car: boost-
er cables and tools, tire repair
kit/spare tire. matches, flash-
lights, shovel, and traction mats.
Also, depending on the severity of
the storm [you might need sup-
plies for up totwo weeks); neces-
sary medications, blankets or
sleeping bags| water, snacks, a
can opener, cl these and a first aid
During the Storrm
*Avoid driving on coastal or
low-lying roads because flooding "

Pastor Charles Gathers and
the congregation would like to
extend an open Invitation to you.
Come and your soul will be

caused by storms can occur with
no warning.
*lf you must drive, get to your
destination as soon as possible.
never attempt to drive through
flooded areas since they can be
' deep and rising flow waters could
quickly sweep your car away or
causeyour engine to stall.
*Keep away from fallen power
lines. If you are in an automobile
that is hit by fallen wires, do not
leave the vehicle. If you must
leave because of a life-threatening
situation, use extreme caution.
Jump out and off with both feet
so you are completely clear the
vehicle before you touch the
ground. Never touch the car and
the ground at the same time.
After the Storm."
*When you return to the
area, be aware of fallen lines,
debris in the roads and other haz-
ards. Unfortunately, your
chances of experiencing a flat tire
then are good.
*Pay attention to any other

post-storm changes, such as
missing signs or broken traffic
signal lights. After a hurricane,
you may find it difficult to navi-
gate in the newly-changed land-
Boat Safety
*Leave your boat and trailer
inside a garage or warehouse. If
left outside, be sure the trailer Is
anchored or at least attached
firmly to the ground with the air
taken out of the tires so it doesn't
easily roll away during a storm.
. *If you decide to.leave'vottr
boat at the marina, check the
mooring hardware and equip-
ment to be sure they are strong
enough to handle strong winds
and high/low tides.
*Make sure to move your
boat well before the storm's onset
and note that most drawbridges
are locked down before a big
storm. Check your local water
authority for exact schedules.

All Schools Require New Students

Be immunized for Seven Diseases

Diptheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Polio, Measles, Mumps and Rubella:

Florida Education Commis-
sioner Frank T. Brogan wants the
parents and guardians of all
incoming kindergartners and sev-
enth graders to become aware of
and comply with new school
immunization rules.
Before they will be admitted
to school on the first day of fall
classes, an estimated 177,000
incoming kindergartners must
have begun the hepatitis B vac-
cine series, This new school
immunization requirement is in
addition to the currently required
'immunizations for diphtheria,
tetanus, pertussis, polio; measles,
mumps, and rubella.
All incoming 183,000 seventh
graders must have begun :the
hepatitis B vaccine series, as well
as received a second dose of the
measles vaccine and a tetanus-
diphtheria vaccine prior to
attending school.
The director of nursing at the
Gulf County Health Department
said that most of Gulf County's
students are in compliance with
these new regulations. However,
there might be a few families who
are unaware of them because they
have just moved to the area or for
some other reason.
All parents need to be aware,

may make a request either orally or in writing to Charles Temple Watson, Director of Support Services, Gulf Countyr
School Board, 150 Middle School Road, Port St. Joe, FL 32456, 229-8256 or 639-2871, for a hearing to appeal the

If a household member becomes unemployed 'or if the household size changes, the school should be contacted. Such
changes may make the children of the household eligible for reduced price meals, or for additional benefits such as free
meals for them, if the household income falls at or below the levels shown above.
In certain cases, foster children are also eligible for these benefits. If a household has foster children living with them and
wishes to apply for such meals for them, the household should contact the school for more information.
Unless indicated otherwise on the application, the information on the free and reduced price meals application may be
used by the school system in determining whether the child is eligible for other educational programs. ,
In the operation of child feeding programs administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, no child will be discrimi-
noted against because of race, color, sex, national origin, age or handicap. If any member of.a household believes they
have been discriminated against, they should write immediately to the Secretary of Agriculture, Washington, D. C.

"AUl the ways of maen

S--Proverbs 16:2

They say the unborn baby is not a person. They
deny the Truth of God, for in His Book of Jeremiah 1:5
He declares, "Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew
thee." This is not "scientific truth". It is God's Truth! If
we want to live in the Will of God, we should honor His
Eternal Word of Truth. Killing unborn babies is
murder, and nothing we can say will change that.
Abortion for convenience is sin, but no more so
than any, therb,.nin., God is always ready to forgive and
Forget when we confess and ask for forgiveness. o

about hoinosexuality. He has convinced many it is
,"genetic, and gays are born that way. In any case, God-
offers the cure: Be born again! He tells us in many
places in His Word, homosexuality is a horrible sin.
; Many have been convinced they are intolerant if
they don't approve this sinful aberration.r Even: some
;,";churches have been persuaded to accept it as an
acceptable lifestyle. Many of our governmental leaders
have been deluded, and laws- are in the makingto
protect and nurture it.

Out. Jim Getile ,. of Washington Crossing, PA,, an
ex-homosexual, is leading the Way' for other gays. His
organization is composed pof almost one hundred
evangelical, churches, and offers love and acceptance of:
homosexuals, but does not condone the lifestyle.
Another active ohoseiual until his conversion in
1992, Randy Thomas of Texas, works as a missionary
to homosexuals through Liviing Hope Ministries, an
affiliate of Exodus International. Exodus represents
almost 200 ex-homosexual ministries and counseling
centers. Pray for these ministries.
There are many other such missionary witnesses
helping hundreds of ex-homosexuals .to enjoy happy
Christian lives through the help of these ministries.
This sin is no worse than any other sin. It should
be lovingly and prayerfully dealt with by God's Church.

also lives with us. He is constant- ,
ly griping about how the house /
looks, the way I've let myself "go" :K
and about me nagging him to take
more responsibility. All I want is
for him to get off the couch and
get a job- that would be fine! He"

Dear Friend:

rather a blunt descriptor. "Co-
dependent" might not be so blunt.,
A co-dependent person is some-
one who, for whatever reason,
seems to be surrounded by non-
committal, abusive. controlling or,
irresponsible people. The roots of
this problem may run so deep
that the co-dependent person
might take affront if challenged to'
honestly view their behavior. This
is called being in denial, and. is
one of the greatest barriers to
emotional, spiritual and psycho-,,
logical growth.

how you perpetuate your difficul-

Sometimes moving forwardrinilife; ,
after being stuck somewhere for a

Going back to old patterns, how-
ever painful and ultimately
unproductive, holds no surprises.
You know what to expect.
Counseling yourself can help you
isolate non-productive patterns of
behavior. Be aware, however, that
insight can be painful. In fact,
growth often feels like pain. When
dealing with long-term, deep seat-

to get closure and permanently
change problem behavior.

Welcome back!
August 7, 1998, 7:40 AM,
school begins again. I know every-
one is ready to get goirig.'
Sometimes I am amazed at how
many students tell me they arie
ready to begin. Those who don't,
have jobs (and some who do) are
often tired of not having a struc-
tured existence as they have dur-
ing the school year.
We'll start with our annual
"Open House" Thursday night,
6:30 PM 8:00 PM. Parents are'
invited to see new schedules and
meet with teachers. Dr. Bill
Truby, our new assistant princi-
pal, will also be available. Parents,
will be given handouts with somei
important changes in the exemp-'
tion policy and in attendance poll-)
cies, and will be asked to vote oni
new members for the 1998-991

team. It is an important meeting
which will help your student get
started on the right foot.
A reminder to seventh grade
parents-all shots must be com-
pleted for your students to remain
in school. Transfers from other
districts must obtain a "blue"
card from the health department
which indicates the student's shot
status and a plan for completion.
Coach Wayne Flowers indicat-
ed that some students did not
show up for their free physical. All
that means is those who wish .to
play must now provide their own
physical at their expense, before
they can practice.
Students and parents need to
take particular notice of proposed
policy changes involving atten-
dance and exemptions. When
absent from a class, the student
will be required to bring a note
from home :the ,,first day back and
obtain an excused pass. before
being allowed back in class. If not
done properly, the student will re-
enter the class with an unexcused
absence pass;. a one day grace
period will be allowed to correct
the unexcused-otherwise it
remains unexcused, and missed
work, tests, etc.. may not be made
up.. There ,will be. ,no "late"
appeals. Notes from home should
contain a phone number where
the signature can be verified.
Forgeries bv students and friends

can result in suspension.
Exemptions from nine week
tests have also been changed. A

Last week I.
went ,on the,
Truth train. It's a
train travelling
around., Florida
picking up mem-
bers and teach-
ing them to stand
up to the media.
The purpose of this train
was to make Hollywood aware
that the glamorizaton of tobac-
co in movies needs to stop. 80%
of characters in movies smoke,
but only 25% of Americans
smoke in real life.
Why then would Hollywood
choose to make its characters
smoke? Could the reason for
this be because the tobacco
companies pay off producers,
directors;, movie studios? It's not
unusual for tobacco companies
to pay people off, they pay off
the government. If you have any
questions or comments, call or.

sonal squad. She was impressed
with their determination and
