City Takes High



Quote for Annual



Audit Service

Choose Jacksonville Firm Over Local
Provider For Additional $9,650

Commerce, cut the ribbon marking the official opening of the new Chai
homesite in Shipyard Cove. Shown from left are County Commissi
Maddox Davis, David Maddox, Sara Maddox, Warriner, Charlotte MaddoM


Port St. Joe city commission-
ers unanimously decided to con-
tinue with their current audit ser-
vice provider Deloifte & Touche,
LLP (Jacksonville) during regular
businessTuesday evening.
Three firms responded to the
city's request for auditing service
proposals-Deloitte & Touche.
James Moore Company (Talla-
hassee), and Ralph Roberson
CPA/Mike Tucker CPA (Port St.
Joe/Blountstown).
Ranking Deloitte & Touche
their number one choice after
receiving proposals, commission-
ers interviewed them and gave
serious consideration to renewing
the firm as audit service provider
for S28.600 per year.
Mayor Johnny Linton made
the recommendation to the board
saying City Clerk Pauline
Pendarvis, and other employees
in the office, were happy with the
service and saw no need in mak-
ing the change. Commissioners
Jerry Barnes and Damon McNair
agreed with Linton's assessment.
But. all five commissioners
decided to hear from the other
two firms after commissioners
Charles Tharpe and David Horton
said they felt the board should
hear from all firms before making
the decision, especially since one
of them was local (Roberson/
Tucker).
All three firms outlined exten-
sive auditing service experience to
governmental agencies that meet
and exceed all governmental
guidelines and regulations
required to do the service. They
also presented positive peer
review audit reports on their
firms, and stressed services they
could offer beyond the audit.
Roberson/Tucker and De-
loitte & Touche also offered grant
work and preparation as an
option with their service.
The major difference between
the three firms was the price. The
Roberson/Tucker proposal was
$18,950 ($9,650 less than
Deloitte & Touche) and James
Moore's proposal was for $20,000
($8,600 less).
Ward Ridge Sewer Problems
Commissioners spent several
minutes discussing sewer back-
- up problems along the new Ward
Ridge sewer project. Sewer had,
backed up into some homes in the
area creating a mess.
Bill Kennedy, Preble-Rish,
Inc. engineer, explained to the
board the problem lies somewhere
between the lift stations along
'Niles Road, and is due too some
type restriction either within .the
existing pumps,! or something
lodged within the old 4" drain,


City crews restored enough
flow to eradicate the immediate
problem- over the weekend.
Commissioners. Public Works
Superintendent Terry McDaniel.
and the city's engineers are work-
ing on the best long term solution
to the problem. including replac-
ing the 4" drain pipe on Niles
Road with a larger 6" pipe.
Police Sub-Station
Commissioners gave the go-
ahead to a request from Police
Chief Jay Leffert to set up an
office/sub-station in North Port
St. Joe.
Leffert presented the idea to
the board a few months ago. stat-
ing that Raymond Driesbach had
offered the use of his building for
that purpose.
It would serve as a joint head-
quarters for Pot St. Joe and Gulf
County officers patrolling the
area, as well as an office area for
community policing volunteers.
Most of the needed work on
the building will be donated by
people in the community, with the
city's only responsibility being to
pay utilities and come up with a
working leasq document.
Driesbach offered to lease the
building to the city at no charge
for the first three years.
May Get Relief From FEMA
Public Works Superintendent
Terry McDaniel told commission-
ers he had gotten some very
favorable feedback from FEMA's
assessment team concerning
stormwater drainage problems
within the city, and damage to
several bridges.
McDaniel said FEMA assured
him they would try to help with
the problems, Including possibly
mitigating some of the homesites
in low-lying areas.
Drainage at Highway 98 near
the Florida Coast Paper Company
overpass has been 'a constant
problem, backing up water across
the highway and throughout the
community.
McDaniel said he and the rep-
resentatives reviewed several
major stormwater drainage prob-
lems within the city.
In Other Business
.Heard a request for help
from Liba Monteiro to find a site
for a full size soccer field for the
city league. Commissioners dis-
cussed several possible locations
and agreed to help.

market research team would be in

WalkAmerica for March of Dimes Will Begin at


Are you ready, Gulf County?l
The March of Dimes WalkAmerica
is almost here, and there are only
two more days' until you'll have
the opportunity to have a great
time while Ielping America's
babies. On Saturday, October 10,
registration for the walk will begin
at 8:30 a.m., and the walk will
begin at 9:30 a.m. at Centennial
Park in Port St. Joe.
This year, the walk's organiz-
ers are trying something a little
different. The walk will take place


at the same time as two other
events---the Gulf County Health
Fair and the Faith Christian
School Fall Festival. Keeping that
in mind, the three mile long walk
will not go through the downtown
area as usual.
Walkers will go across Long
Avenue to the high school track,
walk ten times around the track,
and then walk back again to
Centennial Park. When the walk-
',rs return, they will be served
light refreshments and donuts,


provided by Krispy Kreme. Burger
King's Burger Bear will be at the
walk as well.
The money raised by
WalkAmerica will be used to fur-
ther the MOD mission, which is to
improve the health of babies by
preventing, birth defects and
infant mortality. In the 60 years
that the MOD has been in exis-
tence, a lot has been accom-
plished.

EVjxcYlHING COMES TO A HALT for the next 10 days or
so, while the baseball playoffs and the World Series are being
played. They are well underway now, with the playoffs eliminat-
ing all except one team from each league to compete in the se-
ries. We wait, anxiously, every year, "'for this season to roll
around so we can witness some of the finest games of baseball.
It's a time when all the players perform 'over their heads' in at-
tempting to become world champions.
You don't need to be a dyed-in-the-wool baseball fan to enjoy
the World Series, just as you don't need to be a football fan to
enjoy the Super Bowl; but it helps!
BASEBALL HAS HAD A REJUVENATION this season, en-
dearing it once again in the hearts of Americans as their favorite
pas 1ie. The home run race between Sammy Sosa and Mark
McQuire has held the nation spellbound to see how far over the
high-water mark set by Roger Maris, 30 years ago. they can
manage to go.
As it turned out--oh the last day of the season-Mark
McQuire came out victorious with 70, hitting two round-trippers
in the final game. That set a record which should stand for long-
er than the 30 years of the previous record. It should be a while
before anyone hits more than 70!
And his team didn't even make the play-offs as a wild card
team!,

THE EXCITEMENT AND SUSPENSE generated by the cur-
rent race to be the best kept everyone on edge, waiting for the re-
sults. Another :round of ,such anticipation would probably be
more than we could. bear a second time.
The two participants seemed to bear up under the strain of
the unofficial contest far better than the spectators did. They
seemed to be' loose and casual about the matter, both wishing
the other well in his quest.'
It has been said before, this season has been good for base-
ball. Not :only have you had a superb home run record contest,
but the pitchers all have been competitive and the fielders have
been more than competent. All, in all, it made for a superb sea-
son, only to be capped off by some super World Series games to
come!,
Jomi us in front of theTV!



Look for the Day

WELL, WE CAN ALL BEGIN speculating on a regular basis,
now, as to just when Florida Coast Paper Company here in Port
St. Joe will begin operations again. It was announced that the
general public, as well as the officials of the mill, should know
something during the latter portion of this month.
Well, in just one short week, the month will be half over and
we will be in the latter stages. It's time to start speculating!
Al. "' inea 'C6 fttti 'lgi fid throtW av'1-"Hit
key. ca"t'-be shut down again.'Try as'hard-as wecai'tog'~ i
nore e fact that the mill is shut "dowr-.'we can't 'help but feel
that large unfilled portion of our pocket where our pocketbook
fits!
WE'VE TRIED TO SAY IT didn't make that much difference
to the economy, but, let's face it; it means around 60%6 of our in-
come is sitting idle. You don't replace the income of around 575
workers with platitudes and saying, "It isn't so bad." The truth
is, "It IS so bad!"
The mill is most of our life's blood around here. and it won't
be replaced very easy. Of course, nobody wants it replaced. We
just want it producing, steady-like, once again.
WE REALIZE IT ISN'T quite as bad as it was in the late 50s.
when the mill was 'running on an average of 10 days a month for
the best part of a year. We havel some diversification to take up
the slack which we didn't'have then. But that doesn't help those
employees who. have had to exist on unemployment compensa-
tion for the past two months. It doesn't remove the sizable dent
the closing has made in our economy as a whole. It doesn't help
our people to read of the burgeoning national economy while
they are having to tighten up their belt a notch or two.
We understand you can't, in effect. sell the seed corn and
stay in business for very long. But, it's a strain having to count
our pennies so close. We all look for the day when this testing
time will be over.

Not Many People Reach 50 Years of Doing Anything!


WE CARRIED A picture in
the paper last week which
marked history in the life of "old"
Dr. Bob King. He had the oppor-
tunity to observe his 50th anni-
versary as a member of the Kiwa-
nis Club.
One of my other "old" friends,
George McLawhon, always comes
by The Star office on Wednesday,
afternoon, about 3:30, to pick up
his new issue of this fabulous
newspaper. George' saw the plc-
ture of Bob, being honored on the
occasion of his 50th anniversary
and it caused him to remember.
"I remember when "old" Bob
first came to town," he remarked.
"He was single, then, and he used
to wander down to the pier dur-
ing the evening to check out the
young girls who were sun bath-
ing. One of them was a school
teacher, and was destined to be-
come his wife!"
Can't you just imagine "old"
Bob getting serious enough to do
some serious courting?

BOTH DOCTORS USED their
GI bill training to get their miedi-
cal training. Dr. Bob had attend-
ed Auburn University, having
gone there from his Luverne, Ala-
bama, home. Then he : went to
war, and then to dental 'college.
Dr. Grace went to the University
of Florida from his home'in Chi-
pley, then to wvar, then to opto-
metric training In Chicago, where
he will have you believe he lived
off canned spinach while he was
Searing his degree.
The GI bill helped a lot of
young men through college. Prob-
ably most of them received a bet-
ter education than. college stu-
dents of today receive, because
they had to work to stay in
school.
Another student or two who
took advantage of the GI bill was
Dr. Joe Hendrix, except the medi-
cal version of the GI bill was
called something else. He received
his degree on some naval pro-
gram in which he paid part of it


back with service' to the armed
forces. Another, was Gannon'
Buzzett and still another was Carl
Guilford, both of whom received
degrees in pharmacy.
I would say that none of
these particular, government pro-
grams were wasted.' I. .
Now, before you go to telling'
me of some instances I over-
looked, let me say that I just
didn't know of any particular in-
stances other than these.

'MANY OTHER MEN received
their college training, paid for by
the GI bill,. but before they be-
came eligible for the bill, they had
to risk their life by getting- ex-
posed to be shot at and killed in a
war!
You can call that a good deal,
if you want to. I call it a bad risk!
I have sat at that same Kiwa-
nis Club which Bob King has
been a member of for 50 years
and listened to Nolan Treglown
and Gannon Buzzett tell of some.
of the experiences they had dur-


ing the famous "Battle of the
Bulge", and have figured out that
they didn't get any good deal if
you're looking for parity, here.
They both tell of enduring
days of freezing weather spent
outside and a relentless enemy'
breathing down their necks. No-;
lan says, "I was so cold, I literally
would cry!"
Nolan was a GI bill student,
too.

NO, "OLD" BOB didn't just
happen to be a 50 year member
of the Kiwanis Club. He could
have quit, just as easily as he
joined, at any time. It took perse-
verance and dedication. It took
loyalty and determination.
"Old" Bob probably didn't re-
alize he had those attributes in
him, when he joined the Kiwanis
Club, 50 years ago.
There's not many people
around who belong to anything
for 50 years. You can be proud of
attaining this goal, Bob.

RE: Foster Care
Dear Wes:
Johnny and Susie are brother
and sister, ager 7 and 5, respec-
tively. Susie lhas some special
medical needs. They have lived
together all of their lives and rely
on each other.
Their mother Is a crack addict
whbo has never held a steady job.
Johnny's' father is in prison.
Susie's father's whereabouts are
unknown. There are relatives, but
they have never shown much
interest in Johnny and Susie.
Finally, after a long history of
neglect, the Florida Department of
Children and Families (DCF)
steps n arid removes the children
from the mother's "care". This
time a report had been received
on the child dbuse hotline that
the children ha'd been left alone. A
0) brief investigation revealed the
report was true. This was not the
first report from concerned
friends, neighbors and or others
about these children. -

I had the distinct honor anid
privilege of suiting up in a baseball
uniform of some description and
color for thirty-four straight :sea-
sons. I was by all accounts a little
better. than average. I played year
roundd until I was in my middle
teens. There's no telling how many
ga"es .
.Let's do a little adding. I hit 6
"big ones" over Paul David's tool
shed. I "socked" at least 15 to 18 in
Terry Brown's back yard. 8 in little
league. 4 more in Babe Ruth. 2 or
3 in high school. 1 in the town
league. 5 or 6 in college. I've hit
about 10 in batting practice over,
the years with various teams. I hit
5 when Josh and Jess were small
in our backyard park.
,You can throw in another
dozen or so for cork ball, wiffle
ball, hitting rocks with a broom-
-- stick over Everett's Lake ......
I figure I'm tied with Mark
McGwire!
If you add my whole career
up against his one year!
Is that unbelievable or whatll
And let me. clue you .in on,
something here. Randy Johnson
can. throw harder than Ernie Ball.
John Smoltz's-curve breaks more,
turns later, and comes at you ten
times faster than Martin Paschall
ever dreamed, of. Curt Schilling
can give you more "stuff" than Ray
Cunningham. Greg Maddox's cir-
cle change has got more moves
than Mary Hadley Hayden.
And danged if big Mark don't
get "'em over by a little more than
my one-half inchl
Remarkable
..Mind boggling, really!
When someone points out to
you that Mark McGwire just had
the greatest home run season in
the history of baseball, and quite
possibly could be the greatest
lhome run hitter of all time .....
You might want to correct
tbem. He was better than that...

Now, what happens to these
children? Where ,will they live?
Will they remain together?
Although this case is hypo-
thetical, It does reflect reality.
After a hearing, the children
would be placed in foster care. If
at all possible. they would be kept
together, but that is not always
possible. Probably, they would
remain in foster .care for many
months.
If all of this is not sad enough,
consider the foster care place-
ment(s) would be in another
county. Not only would these chil-
dren be placed in a household
strange to them, they would be
placed in a community unknown
to them. That's because there are
no licensed foster homes in Gulf
County.
On Friday October 9. 'from
12:00 to 1:30 P.M. (ET) the Long "
Avenue Baptist Church is hosting
a presentation by representatives
from the Florida Baptist
Children's Homes concerning fos-
ter care and adoptions. The lun-
cheon is free and reservatons
should be made by contacting
Dawne Ford at 227-1206.
This Is an opportunity to
learn about agency guidelines,
the home study process, training.
and to have answered common
questions regarding the foster
care and adoption processes.
Foster homes are needed in
Gulf County. Hopefully, this out-
reach effort sponsored, by Long
Avenue Baptist Church will be
well attended.
Sincerely,
/s/ ROBERT M. MOORE

Mayor Geos "Hands
On" Experience
Dear Mr. Ramsey;
You and your readers ,will be"
well aware of the horrible weather
we've experienced in relation to
Hurricane Georges and of the
flooding we routinely, experience
in some parts of the city as a con-
sequence to such weather.
You and your readers may not
be so aware of something I saw
yesterday afternoon. At the inter-,
section of Highway .98 and
Monument Avenue, in front of the
First Methodist Church, a city
maintenance crew was working to
drain a patch of standing water
from the roadway.
Working to clear a clogged
drainage ditch that was causing
the problem was our mayor,
Johnny Linton, who--in his shirt
and tie-had waded off into the
ditch to pull out some tree limbs
and other things that were block-
ing the water flow.
In a time when we all have
reason to be skeptical of our polit-
ical leadership, I found the sight
of Mayor Linton working to clear
that drainage ditch particularly
refreshing. In my opinion, that's
exactly the kind of leader these
times call for-someone who not
only can make speeches filled
with good intentions, but who is
also actually willing to get out and
do whatever it takes to make the
good intentions reality for our
community.
Thanks to Mayor Linton, for
displaying that kind of hands-on
leadership and caring. I, for one,
am proud of himt
Sincerely yours,
/s/ Kenneth E. Dykes, Sr.

Gators Lose Heartbreaker

You May Be Able to Buy a New


Heating and Cooling System for

Your Home and Make Money

Improving technology and the Federal Energy code
has made Home Comfort more efficient than ever.
Yes, it is true, if your Heating bill, in comparison with the same
and Cooling system is not a high month a year later, after installing
efficiency system you are wasting a 12 SEER Heat Pumnp System.
money. 'Improvements to your windows'
and m suai .n. c i ai s "a 1o


For the past couple of years
we have found a need to-inform
our customers of these little known .
facts. An old or inefficient system
can be costing you more to operate
than the payments would be for a
new high efficiency system.
I have made arrangements
with a national financing company
to provide low interest loans to
homeowners for the purchase of
new heating and cooling equip-
ment for their homes. The applica-
tion takes about 5 minutes to fill
out and it only takes an additional
5 minutes on the phone to get
approval to start the job. In some
cases the monthly payments are
less than the savings on the electric
bill. Thus, you are making money.
I have had jobs where the
owner reported as much as
$170.00 savings from their electric


and insulation can also addaa to
your savings.
Another problem that can cost
you money and comfort is under-
sized systems. An undersized sys-
tem becomes most apparent during
hot weather. If your Air
Conditioner runs all day without
shutting off, the problem could be
an undersized Air Conditioner.
We also see a lot of problems
due to the lack of maintenance. To
solve this problem we offer a main-
tenance agreement; this agreement
provides for your unit to be
checked twice a year.
Whatever your heating and
cooling needs or problems might
be, call for a free estimate. We will
evaluate your needs, make sugges-
tions and provide you with a
quote, at no cost to you. Garry L.

THE DANGER OF
MAIL ORDER PRESCRIPTIONS

Often over the years, the danger of mail order
prescriptions have been cited in many medical
journals. Here is one example-
"The dangers of mail order prescriptions include
delays encountered in obtaining the medication, the
absence of the physician-pharmacist relationship,
the difficulties of checking the prescription files for
strength and dosage, and the possibilities that
,prescriptions will be filled by non-professional
personnel. All physicians should cooperate by
keeping their patients informed relative to the
dangers of these schemes." (End of Quote)

Festivities
The Port St. Joe Sharks'
homecoming night was spoiled by
a 28-23 loss to the Blountstown
Tigers Friday night. The Sharks'
offense reached the end zone only
once, on the third play of the
game, as they committed five
turnovers, four on fumbles, and
one interception.
"There is no doubt that
turnovers hurt us," said head"'
coach Chuck Gannon. "It was
really disappointing and heart-

Koran Peters took the pitch
from James Daniels on the third
play from scrimmage, turned the
corner, and outran the Tiger
defenders for a 56 yard touch-
down. Fionn Johnston's extra
point gave Port St. Joe a 7-0 lead
wit 10:35 left in the first quarter.
On the ensuing kick-off,
Blountstown bounced back when
George Mosley (#2) returned the
kick 90 yards for a touchdown.
Daniels blocked the extra point,
but the Tigers narrowed Port St.
Joe's lead to 7-6 with 10:19 left in
the first quarter.
On the first play of the second
quarter, Dexter Gant scooped up
a Blountstown fumble and
returned it 46 yards for another
Shark touchdown. Johnston
added the extra point for a 14-6
Port St. Joe lead with 11:46 left in
the first half.
Johnston put the Sharks on
the board again with 3:50 left in
the half on a 19 yard field goal for
a 17-6 Shark lead. Bonjour Hill's
fumble recovery on the Sharks' 41
yard line help set up the score.
With :02 left on the clock
before halftime, Tremaine Lewis
put Port St. Joe on the board
again with a 28 yard fumble
return for a touchdown.
Johnston's extra point attempt
was blocked, but the Sharks took
a 23-6 lead into halftime.
"We knew they were going to
turn up the heat in the second
half, and we didn't respond," said
Coach Gannon. "In our first four
games, we never had to play the
full 48 minutes, but they have.
They've been in that situation 'of
having to battle the entire game
for a victory."
The second half of play
belonged to the Tigers. After a
short punt was downed on the
Port St. Joe 43 yard line, the
Tigers marched 43 yards in four
plays to score on a one yard
touchdown run. Blountstown's
two point conversion attempt
failed, but the Sharks' lead was
cut to 23-12 with 6:03 left in the

line. Two plays later, Mosley

news. Today, dentists think tl at
fillings should be kept as small
as possible and restricted to
the decayed part of the tooth.
In the past, dentists
believed that larger fillings were
easier to clean and that by
extending the filling into the
tooth's decay-free pits and
grooves, further cavities could
be prevented.
Now, they know that too
much drilling may injure the
nerve and weaken the tooth, so
.it may fracture later. Also, fill-
ings don't need to be large to

fight decay. Fluorides, diet,
brushing, flossing and new
sealants are better for that pur-
pose.
In addition, new dental
technology makes this new
minimal drilling approach work.
Stronger amalgams and bond-
ing techniques with composite
resins no longer require the
major excavations of the olden
days. Now you can spend more
time watching TV rather than
your dentist's face (as hand-
some as it is).

grim. According to recent esti-

if the currenthrate olfdestruction
continues, we could lose it all-
the toucans, the orchids, the
gorillas everything-in less
than 75 years.
Despite the gloom-and-doom
predictions, there are some bright
spots in the worldwide struggle to
protect these tropical treasures,
and it is important that people
know that. It is also Important
that they know they can help.

HOMECOMING!
Homecoming week-October
5 through October 9-all our old
grads, are Invited .to Join in.
Friday, you can join us for lunch
starting around 11:00 a.m..,, but
you can' come later-they'll be
serving fromIll until about 12:10
p.m .. ... ..

Of course, the later shift is
with the middle school lunch, a
little noisier. I believe Nervine's
planning fried chicken this year.
The parade is at 2:00 p.m., the
games at 7:00 p.m., ahd'the HC
dance is after the game.

What a great effort Friday
night against Cottondale. The
Gators dressed only 13 players,
and these 13 "iron men" almost
pulled off the upset. Only a last
minute desperation pass play,
that pulled Cottondale ahead
20-15, kept the Gators from
pulling off the Cinderella game of
the year.

Fighting fatigue and injuries,
the, Gator "13" scored and then
made a two point conversion to go
ahead 15-14 with one minute
remaining. The Hornets, though,
after the kick-off took advantage
of the Gators'. fatigue to loft a long
pass behind the secondary for the
winning touchdown.

These "13", plus a couple of
junior varsity players, will tackle


a strong Apalachicola team for
our homecoming game at' 7 p.m.
Friday night. Get behind these
players and coaches-they'll give
you everything they've got!
Besides homecoming, this
week had our 11th graders (and a
few 12th graders) taking the
HSCT tests in communications
and math. I hope we continue to
show improvement in the number
passing!

Also, the' nine weeks ends
October 9 (Homecoming Day), and-
students and teachers will get the
following Monday, Tuesday, and
Wednesday off for a break. When
they return on October 15
(Thursday), the high schoolers
will get new schedules and be off
and running. Report cards won't
go out until October 231

Parents, stay behind your
students. The teachers need your
support! Don't hesitate to call a
teacher to see how your student is
doing.

This week we received the
news that Coach Jay Kearce,
Wewa baseball coach for several
years, has resigned to enter the
world of big business. He built a
solid, successful program, and we
wish him well as he embarks on
his new career.

Have a great week! Support
"Homecoming"!

As You Turn Clocks Back, Take Time to


Change theT Battery in Smoke Detectors


For most of us, the end of
daylight saving time on the' last
Sunday of October means a
delightful extra hour of sleep. But
it can mean fd.a more if we not
only turn our clocks back, but
also take this, opportunity to
make sure "we ,have working
smoke detectors in our homes.
The extra time gained from a
smoke alarm could make the dif-
ference between the salvage or
destruction of homes, family
keepsakes, and other irreplace-
able items. More importantly, it
could mean life or death. In 1997,
125 Floridians died in accidental
fires and another 1,187 suffered
injuries.
Working smoke detectors
increase the fire-survival rate in
home fires by 50%, according to
the National Fire Protection
Association.
Yet. too many residents don't
think about fire safety until disas-
ter strikes. Smoke detectors were
present in only 38% of residential
fires reported in, 1997.
Another 15% of the residen-
tial fires that year involved
smoke-detector failure, primarily
due to dead, batteries. -All told,
more than half of the Florida
homes damaged or destroyed by
fires lacked a working smoke
detector. .
Part of the problem can be
traced to certain household situa-
tions. For example, families strug-
gling to pay the rent and other
bills may feel they can't afford
alarms; or, because of age or dis-
ability,'others may find installa-
tion a difficult task.
That's why our State Fire
Marshal Division last year teamed
up with Radio Shack to launch
Operation FireSafe. With the help
of more than 200 local fire and
health departments. ,wve distrlb'-'
uted 50,000 free smoke detectors:
throughout the state. also provid-
ing Installation assistance where
it was needed.
Now, Radio Shack is donating


There are occasionally a few
people who are happy with
themselves Just the way they
are, which Is great, but the
majority of us want to change
something about ourselves. One
way, to change our image is to
smoke.
When you see a teenager
smoking, the words vulnerable,
lower self-esteem, and honor stu-
dent don't come to mind. I'm not
saying that honor students
don't smoke.. but studies have
shown that the overwhelming
majority of teens -who- do, are
not honor students.
Although you may not sense
these common problems, at
least one of. them is embodied in
a teen that uses tobacco.
A reason,for starting usage
is not because of a natural crav-
ing for nicotine, it's because
smoking is perceived in society
as a way of enhancing a per-
son's maturity. Many kids have
role models that smoke, and
these role models have desirable
attributes such as sex appeal,
toughness, and social accep-
tance.
The problems arise after a
person starts smoking on their
own, not just around friends to
be cool. That is addiction, you
don't get hooked on the first cig-
arette. You, not your body,
needs nicotine for everyday life.
If you have any questions or
comments, contact the gulf
County Health Department at
227-1276, extension 120.


another 50,000 smoke detectors
for distribution starting this
month. For more information, you
may call the Insurance Consumer
Helpline toll-free at 1-800-342-
2762. The hearing impaired 'may,
use a TDD to call, 1.-800-640-
0886. .
Smoke-detector use, in addi-
tion to 'saving lives, may. also
reduce homeowners insurance
costs. For more information, con-
tac your insurance agent or com- '
pany. "
-Here are some other fire-safe-
ty steps to consider:
*Buv smoke de(ector-s that'
show an independent testing lab-,
oratory's label, and make sure
each level and sleeping area of
your home includes an alarm;
*Check each alarm monthly
by pushing the test button. and
change the batteries annually;
ePlan escape routes for your
family, and you might even want
to conduct a home fire drill: .
*: Make sure any windows with '
burglar bars feature a quicli-
release -button' or lever on the'
inside. You should also make sure
everyone in your home can oper-
ate this feature; and
*Know the facts. Most hofne.
fires reported in Florida occur in
the kitchen (38%) or sleeping
areas '(15%). ;Common causes,,
include unattended cooking,
faulty appliances, smoldering cig-
arettes, portable heaters left close
to bedding or lacking, safety fea-


tures, frayed extension cords, and:
loose-fitting fireplace grills 'or':
screens.

New Covenant to Host Conference


MEDITATIONS OF A


By LOWELL F. ADAMS:

A CLEAR
CONSCIENCE
"'are made manifest (clear)
in your conscience"
H- I Corinthians 5:11


lY CONSCIENCE is that little voice with-
in my heart that tells me, "Please don't do that!"
In the Christian heart the conscience is directed
by the Holy Spirit. It is the eye of the soul, always
looking toward God's highest standard of action.
Of course, one who is not a Christian, has a
conscience also, and it tells them what they should
not do. But Satan has free access here, and he may
convince them, "There's nothing wrong with that."
Oftentimes however, he manages to deceive
Christian hearts also. He certainly did it with Eve.
'.And he 4oes it with you and me, if we are not care-
ful, tQ ke,ep.ournconscience rightly focused.
God speaks with a quiet voice. He never
shouts. But if we keep our heart's eye focused on
His highest standard, we are able to hear Him,
and have the victory over Satan's lies. If our heart
does not condemn us over a matter, we have assu-
rance that God is pleased with us. (First John 3:211 We
are at peace with ourselves and God.
.-Second Corinthians 10:4-5 cautions us to use
our weapons (God's Word) to pull down Satan's
strongholds, which are the thoughts and imagina-
tions he continually puts in our minds.
God wants the very' best for His children. Al-
ways listening to His wee small voice, with perfect
trust, we enjoy His best.
He not only blesses with spiritual gifts, He
supplies physical needs as well. Jesus said "You
have not because you ask not." If you are God's
. child, ask Him for the things you need. He will re-
spond to every request, when you live in His will.

turns out right, and I am bored
with my life. My children are
grown and out of the, house, and I.
am faced with the dilemma of
"finding something to do" with,
myself.
I don't feel Icean do anything
right anymore. I have been a.
"stayr-at-home" mother,, by choice,
for years, raising my three' chil-
dren arid have found a great joy
and a sense of accomplishment
from my efforts. .
My :husband tells' me I have
low self-esteem. Could he be
right? It is true 14aver always felt,
nervous around unfamiliar peo-
ple, extremely uncomfortable in, ;
new situAtfdf',VW-iFtiew chal-'
lenges are difficult for me. Is It
ever too late to change your self-
esteem?
Signed,
."' -"'D D. ,
Dear Mrs. D..
Self-esteem is ,,ow we per-.
celve oursefves. You seff-esteem
is made up of thoughts and feel-
ings yotf t yourself. r
When we classify our thoughts
and feelings they are typically
either positive or negative.
Positive for example, "I'm
pretty. intelligent, I learn from my
mistakes. I am a great mother,
and others find me fun to be
around." Negative self-thoughts.
might include, "I'm ugly, I'm stu-
pid; I am so boring."
Having a low self-esteem is
not something we have complete
control over. What is most sur-
prising is that one's level of self-
Est eet'& j oftden- -influencedt or...
.veloped stletiuy because of' the
way others have treated us.
If you have ever been sexually
abused, neglected and discarded,
then made to feel as though your
thoughts, wants, or needs were
inconsequential and unimportant,
your level of self worth has been
affected in some way.
Because self-esteem affects
the way we live and interact with


* UNITED STATES
I POSTAL SERVICE,.


others, it will also affect our per-
ception of our successes. A high
self-esteem can make you, feel
effective, productive, capable and
loveable. Conversely, a low self-
esteem can make 'ohe feel ineffec-
tive, worthless, incompetent, and
unloved.
unSelf-esteem can be improved.
Do not allow past events or fail-
ures to hold you back. The fact
you have raised three indepen-
dent children is a success in of
itself. You owe it to your self to
"learn to feel good" about who you
arel
Harboring past resentments
js the number one killer of per-
Isonal growth. Instead, develop a
new enthusiastic outlook toward
the challenges you face. Face new
experiences as opportunities for
personal growth, and reward
yourself for your accomplish-
ments. After all, life is a one time
experience.
In therapy, the most often
asked question is, "How do I
change?" Once we become aware
of our negative patterns, the next
step is to begin challenging your-
self to change. You must chal-
lenge your patterned thinking.
your patterned behaviors. one at a
time.
Don't take on everything at
.once. You 'will sabotage your
efforts. Change happens one step
at a time, so be patient. If you feel
you' could benefit from further
;Input or improving your self-
esteem, contact the Life
Management Center.

A new park being built at
Cape San Blas is also nearing
completion. The boat landing at
White City is also being improved
and enlarged to accommodate
more boats being launched in a:'
shorter length of time.
The new 'industrial park at
Honeyville is rapidly being devel-
oped and the new speculation
building has just been completeU.
'We have two or three firms who
are interested in renting the
building," he said.
"Gulf county is growing,"'
Yeager declared. "The building de.'
apartment reflects that the county
growth is substantial," he said. : ,
"In fiscal 1990 the depart-,
ment issued $24,000 worth of.
permits. In' this past fiscal year,
the department issued $157,000
in building permits. This places -
$13 million worth of Improved '
property on, the tax rolls." ,
'Things we had to do or had
in progress, determined that we
raise taxes slightly this year. Part"
of this is an increase in insh-
