FEMA Aid Available to Individuals and

Many individuals and businesses who suffered damages from
Hurricane Earl may be eligible for one of various federal and state
assistance programs to help In their recovery process.
Six Florida counties were declared eligible for individual assistance
after Earl swirled through the Panhandle of northern Florida last week,
triggering' the emergency assistance programs of the state and the
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
"State and FEMA teams are completing their county by county, on-
site inspection of damages, and while Earl spared Florida the wrath of
some of our other storms, we still have considerable damages to both

"Persons seeking aid, whether it Is a grant or a loan, should register as

The toll-free number Is 1-800Q-462-9029 Or 1-800-462-7585 for
those with speech or hearing impairments.
Assistance includes temporary housing payments for those whose
homes are uninhabitable and grants for minimal repairs of uninsured
property to enable owners to return to their homes. Grants are avail-
able for serious, disaster-related needs not covered by Insurance or
other programs. Unemployment payments may become available for
workers who lost jobs because of the disaster and who do not qualify
for state benefits.

THE NEW GULF/FRANKLIN CENTER has opened up with
306 students enrolled. That's quite a start for the center. as Lim-
ited as it is, offering different subjects. No wonder the center is
already planning for expansion. It will be needed, just to take
care of the everyday classes, not to mention any additional class-
es. We would say the center Is a definite hit among our people
here in Gulf and over in Franklin county.
The center meets a definite need in our county, as proven by
the acceptance and initial student load. All of these are not cor-
rectional officer trainees, either. That was to be the main em-
phasis of the new campus, since we had four new prisons in the
two counties which needed a steady supply of trained officers to
SUCH COURSES AS WELDING, air conditioning and nurs-
ing are bound to prove popular, once they are introduced. Nearly,
every home in Gulf and Franklin counties is air conditioned. We
can't expect those now working in themedium to keep the explo-
sion of machines operating without some help. The college will
definitely fill a need here.
Medical services are getting more and more complex. They
need more trained personnel to meet the need and avoid high
stress among those already in the ranks. Welding today is more
than just fusing two pieces of metal together. Then, again, there
is more to weld than just iron and steel. Different metals require
What better place to meet all these heeds than in an institu-
tioi accustomed to imparting specialized knowledge?
THE CAMPUS IS DOING a good job, already, in its opening
offerings of computer training, correctional specialists and gen-
eral students. All have proven popular and filled up their class
slots.,It can't all be done here at the beginning. The center must
crawl before it can walk. But with support such-as the center is
getting from the outset, it won't be long before it is hard-pressed
to keep up with the demand.
When it comes to this, we can all point with pride to the 10-
acre plot at the south end of Garrison Avenue, as our college
where our young people go for higher training.
WE ,USE A BUILDING to its fullest extent here in Gulf
County. We don't just throw it away because it no longer suits
our purpose. We make it fit our purpose. A case in point is the
Port St. Joe Elementary School. It has proven to be a universal
building for education ever since it was built back in the late
The old red brick building, which stood on Long Avenue at
10th Street was no longer adequate as a high school and was so
constructed that it couldn't be renovated into anything else'. It
was heated by wood heaters, cooled by open windows and [hope-
fully] strong breezes. It had served its purpose. since shortly af-
ter the turn.of the centniy, housing students of-all grades at"onem
tim e oradnother. ". '; '. : I-,'..
A new building was in order, so the' present PSJ Elementary
School was built, originally, as a high school.
IT WASN'T TOO MANY YEARS before the building was too
small for the high school and the elementary, school was burst-
ing at the seams. So. the building in question-being too valua-
ble to throw away-was utilized as an elementary school while a
new high school was built. The building was still doing yeoman
service for the school district and the 'people of Port St. Joe at
very little expense.
Again, changes must be made in order to keep up with the
times, offering subjects elementary students are expected to
have. Again, the old 1940's building is the center for this provi-
sion for about half the cost of building a new one completely
[and what would we do with the old one if we dld?
The old building is once again being retrofitted to meet the
demands of the day, some new classrooms and centers being
added and the rest of the building renovated. This is utilizing
what you have.
STHE BUILDING HAS PROVEN to be very versatile over the
past years since it was first built. It has met whatever assign-
ment that has been given it, with a little renovation. We wonder
if Tommy Owens [the superintendent of the 40's] realized just
how the then-new building would serve Gulf County's education-
al needs into the future?

In a historic turnabout, the
Gulf County School Board and the
Classroom Teachers Association
have come to an agreement on:
salaries after only a month of
classes. In the recent past, it has
been.months before anything was
signed, and last year a special
master had to be called in to nego-
tiate a settlement.
Jerry Kelley, Superintendent
6f Instruction, commented, "This
was a very agreeable experience,
We are on the right track of work-
ing together to achieve a salary
schedule." The teachers, who
received pay raises from 3.75% to
1 1o%, with an average of 5%, rati-
fied the contract 140-4.
The Classroom Teachers
President. Judy Campbell,
remarked, "I'm glad it's over. Now
I can get back to my real job
Salary negotiations were han-
dled somewhat differently this
year. The superintendent gave the
figure of S220.000, figured in the
budget for raises, to the teachers'
association and allowed them to
determine an equitable way of dis-
S tributing them to the instruction-
al staff. Starting salary for a
teacher with a bachelor's degree is
823,150. With a year's experience
the pay scale jumps to 824,000
with 8350 incremental increases
per year of service up to nine
years. From ten years to 14 years
of experience, the rate increases
8500 per year, and from 15 years
to 20 years, the rate is 8750 per
year. A large increase is noted
from step 22 to 23 years, with
$38,480 at 23 years.
In a legislatively mandated
move, 820,000 was allotted for
performance appraisal incentive
pay increases to be divided among
Gulf County's instructional staff.
(Checks based on annual perfor-
nmance assessments, with exem-
plary and effective ratings, will be
distributed to teachers by the
final June check of the fiscal year.

$3,766, to a high 12.0 percent of
$6,382. Stipt. Kelley defended the
raises as an attempt to reward
administrators for their length of
service. Previously there wasn't a
provision for seniority increases.
The Board voted on the salary
schedules in three different sec-
tions: administrative, paraprofes-
sional, and. education support
personnel. With the exception of
administrative salaries, the salary
schedules were unanimously
Mary Pridgeon was the lone
vote against the administrative
salary schedule, stating that the
administrative pay raises were
excessive, and the board cannot
justify a newly hired assistant
principal receiving a S1,500 raise
after a month. Currently there
isn't a provision on on the adminis-

Trailed Young Burglars
On Thursday, September 3rd,
Deputy Chris Dixon investigated a
break-in at Wade Stevens' camp
at Douglas Landing. Upon arrival
at the scene, the deputy observed
four wheeler tracks in the yard
area surrounding the camp.
Dixon was informed by a
neighbor that he had observed
several boys riding four wheelers
in the area. He was unaware of
the youngsters' names, but was
-from Page 1A
available to serve. Yeager also
said he skipped over Commis-
sioner Traylor because he was
involved in an election at this
Stanley disagreed with
Yeager's assessment, stating he
should have been next in line.

Candidate Scores Lack of Voter Interest
Dear Mr. Ramsey, *
"'" I take ecelption '6~~"ou ebdito-
rial of September 3, 1998. in
which you stated that there were
no candidates. In the district two
County Commissioner race, there
were two honest candidates, nei-
ther of whom got a majority of the
votes. Please look at the Over-
street results, which were honest.
You said that none of the can-
didates had been talking. Not
speaking for the others, but let
me tell you that I uwas talking. On
countless evenings and week-
ends. I made the rounds. knock-
ing on doors, being chased and
bloodied by dogs, and presenting
myself to the voters.
Yet sadly. I found that most of
them don't care. The election
process in Wewahitchka disillu-
sions some people, so they don't
even bother voting. I also had
;three ads in your newspaper.
(Maybe you- don't read your'
S paper?),} -
-' My wife and I worked our-
hearts out on the day before the
election. We made the rounds in
Wewahitchka and outlying areas
to remind people that tomorrow is
election day. Most of them didn't
know! and they also didn't care.,
I did put a little money and a
lot of work into it, but it wasn't
enough to overcome the voter's
familiar with where they lived.
When Deputy Dixon made
contact with the boys, they admit-
ted to breaking into the camp,
and agreed to pay for the damage'
to the camp. In light of this offer,
the owner of the property decided
not to prosecute, therefore, no
charges were filed in the incident.

Many students believe that
the threats in that ancient time
and the spiritual dangers facing
our nation today are worth com-
parison, prompting them to pray
to God as the Jews did in the
story of Esther.
The tragic shootings at high
school and junior high campuses

in the untimely deaths of more
than a dozen children and teach-
ers, highlight the danger students
face when they walk on the school
grounds each day.

fervor; 'the number of students
attending the daily prayer meet-
ings in Paducah, Kentucky, grew
from around 30 to more than 130
after a shooting incident on
December 1, 1997.
See You at the Pole is a stu-
dent-initiated and student-led
movement that began in Texas in'
1990 with a single church youth
group. The number of its partici-
pants grew to more than three

states and more than 20 coun-,
tries on five continents participat-
ted last year, including six
European countries. Reports were
also sent in from the Ivory Coast,
Turkey. Japan. Malaysia, Guam,
The visibility of See You at the

Why Should I Wait?
When the Brady Bill passed, the main selling point of a 5-day wait-
ing period for the purchase of a handgun was to allow the authorities to
check the criminal background of prospective purchasers. The waiting
period was instittited for 5 years to allow the states to upgrade their crim-
inal history files so that they could be accessed and checked instanta-
neously while the seller was on the telephone to the authorities. Those
records have been updated and that 5.year 'period has expired. The
National Instant Record Check System (NICS) will become effective
November 30, 1998 as the 5-day wait expires.
Some big city politicians have used their influence in the
Constitutional Revision Commission to place Proposition 12 on the
November 3, 1998 general election ballot to create a five day wait AND
TWO instant record checks for gun purchasers in Florida. Why is it nec-
essary for us, as law abiding citizens, to wait additional time for no pur-
pose and undergo two criminal history checks for the same purpose?
Proposition 12 is' just another way for big city politicians to push
their weight around and exercise control over their citizens (or is it now
Other potential themes which should include a call for voting no on
prop 12 are:
McKay Doesn't Trust Floridians-the story of how Buddy McKay
wants background checks for ALL transfers of firearms, even private sales,
and how this means that McKay believes Floridians are presumed to be
criminals until they pass a background check.
Bad Judges Make High Crime-the story of how judges in Mayor
Penelas County and in many others depart from sentencing guidelines to
give LOWER sentences than recommended and how this practice is the
real reason for high crime rates.
Real Cause Of Crime-the story of how lenient judges release danger-
ous criminals into society to. prey on law abiding citizens and how they
are stopped by Florida's concealed weapons laws. (See Lott study)
During the debate over passage of the Brady Bill, proponents
acknowledged that the bill would probably have no affect on crime. They
did, however claim that it would save lives. Waiting periods have been in
effect for over 30 years in California. That state also has both an instant
criminal record check and a mental history check and requires all trans-
fers between private citizens to be processed by a firearms dealer. The fact
that in 1992 California ranked 4th in violent crimes per 100,000 popula-
tion in the nation, while both North Dakota and Vermont, with virtual-
ly no gun laws, ranked last and next to last in violent crimes per 100,000
population in the nation suggests the ineffectiveness of such schemes as
crime control measures.
The last published data indicates that Homicides in Florida declined
20% following enactment of the Florida Concealed Weapons Law. In
March of 1994, Federal officials announced that nationwide, the Brady
Law had prevented over 300,000 disqualified persons from purchasing
firearms from legitimate FFL dealers. They neglect to point out that most
were prevented from doing so by instant record check systems in effect in
numerous states and not by the waiting period. In addition, a great many
of those persons were denied the purchase based upon traffic tickets, fail-
ure to pay a traffic fine etc., which are not legitimate reasons for such
The Study Crime, Deterrence and Right-to-Carry Concealed
Handguns, by John Lott and David Mustard concluded that in those
states with "Right to Carry Concealed Handgun" laws, crime was signif-
icantly lower and declining. In addition, the study concluded that, if the
states which did not adopt the "Right-to-Carry" laws had done so in
1992, there would have been a reduction of at least 1,570 homicides and
over 4,177 rapes in those states alone. Thus, 5,747 people would not
have been victims of crime. Indeed it would have saved not just one life,
but many., Jhn P. Murnan THE UUTPIST
