Unemployment
Rate on the Rise
Unemployment in Florida has
risen more than 10% from August
to September, according to the
State Department of Labor and
Employment Security, leaving the
statewide average at 17.7%.
In September of 1997. Gulf
County's unemployment rate was
8.3%. This fell to 6.8% by August
of this year. However, due to the
continuing shutdown of the mill,
this figure swelled to 17.7% by
the end of September. The shut-
down has resulted in an increase
in unemployment in neighboring
counties as well.

City Cranks Out


Marina Lease Details

Suggests Minimum Amount of $12,500 Per
Month During First Two Years of Agreement
During a workshop session prior to the Port St. Joe City Commission's regular meeting, City Attorney Billy
Joe Rish outlined the first draft of the city's lease and operational proposal for the new 159 slip marina under
construction.
City commissioners want to have someone under contractual agreement to begin operating the marina
when construction is complete early next year.
The main thrust of the agreement is to protect the city's long term interest as owners of the marina com-
plex. Spelled out in the text is a detailed maintenance agreement, performance bond equalling one year's lease,
Insurance requirements and proof of insurance. lease terms and even housekeeping procedures.
The commission Intends to lease the facility for an amount over and above what the city has to pay month-
ly to repay the S2.5 million RDA (Rural Development Agency) loan used to construct most of the approximate-
ly S3.5 million dollar marina. The rest of the construction expenses were paid for through grant funds acquired
for the project.
Rish suggested the minimum bid should be placed at 812,500 per month during the first two years of the
contract (when the city has to pay interest only on the loan) and 815.000 per month each month thereafter for
the duration of the lease.
Any proposal received above those amounts would be considered as profit to the city.
Rish suggested board members go over the proposal and asked the marina committee to also review them.
before they have final discussions on them and call for bids.
City Clerk Pauline Pendarvis said the city hopes to send the proposals out for bid late this month (October)
and hold bid opening, and review, sometime in December.
Preble-Rish engineer Bill Kennedy also told the board Royal American Construction was requesting a 60
day contract extension on the project because of delays brought on with the occurrence of two recent hurri-
canes,. The delays will push the completion date back to March 1999.
The board also discussed developing some of the out-parcels of property adjacent to the marina and sev-
eral change orders.
Audit Questions
Several residents were present requesting an explanation from the board as to why a local firm
(Roberson/Tucker CPA's) was overlooked for the city's auditor service when their proposal was 89.650 less than
Deloitte & Touche's proposal fdr the service.
Mayor Johnny Linton was quick to reveal that Deloitte & Touche's proposal of 828.600 to perform the audit
- service had been negotiated to a lower price (826.000) since the time the proposals were heard.
He also explained that Deloitte & Touche were ranked as the board's # 1 choice before any price proposals
were received (as reported in The Star's September 17 issue) and that the selection was made based on the pro-
posals. not price.
Commissioner Charles Tharpe said the three firms offering proposals didn't rank that much different, but
he felt Roberson/Tucker. as a new business, needed to prove themselves for at least one year to get established.
"Next year may be a different thing," he said. See CRANKS on Page 6

Discusses

Expansion

Gulf County commissioners
agreed during a recent board
meeting that North Gulf County
should have an Advanced Life
Support (ALS) ambulance system;
but, agreement on how the sys-
tem will operate, and who will
provide the service, might not be
so simple.
During a called workshop on
the Issue Monday evening
(October 19) two basic plans were
outlined. One was for South Gulf
County's service to expand into
the north end of Gulf County and
become a true county-wide ser-
vice. The other proposal was to
hire Bay County's ambulance ser-
vice to provide ALS service in the
northern end of the county.

Plans are being finalized for a new addition to the new

A Little Help

THE GULF COUNTY COMMISSION SEEMS to be bent on
getting the county into shape where it will be flexible to compete
with other counties and other states for additional businesses
which offer more jobs to our people.
Their consideration of property tax exemptions and reductions
to lure commerce to our county should prove to be the proper car-
rot to place on the stick to attract most growing concerns. With
the climate of reducing expenses and cutting operational' costs a
nation wide move, this seems to be the correct step with the most
attractive encouragement to these moving firms. It's the very move ,
which attracted St. Joe Paper Company to Gulf County many
years ago, and if it'll work then, it should work now.
St. Joe Paper Company is no longer with us, which is proof
that we can't afford to rest on our laurels once our bait has been
taken. It's a continuing process of figuring out some new gimmick
to, attract new business to replace those who fade away. ,
AND, WHAT'S TO KEEP US from offering tidbits to those
industries we already have to encourage them to remain and grow
with the county?
It's painfully evident they are having economic troubles. Two:
of the firms have announced staff cutbacks and are in the process
of marking downtime, when nobody works Another has had a
long-time history of taking steps to reduce costs and shift its
emphasis of production. Why not consider them in our.steps to
encourage new firms? There's no need to "sell" these firms on Gulf
County, just a need in helping them to continue to exist.
This assistance is sort of like walking a tightrope, however. We
want to be careful that we don't throw the baby out with the bath
water when we start giving relief. We must allow our people to
make enough to pay the taxes forgiven the industry, or do without
the services these taxes buy for us.
WHY NOT HOLD A WORKSHOP specifically for the purpose
of asking our resident providers of jobs just what they need most
by way of assistance, mull It over In our minds, see how we can
reasonably grant the requests without hurting the county any
more than it has been hurt already? We might be surprised at how
painless just a little help would be for us to provide.



Making A Choice

THE LAST VESTIGES OF VOLUNTARY ambulance services
seems destined to disappear from Gulf County. That isn't neces-
sarily bad, nor unwelcome. The voluntary service has been with us
and served our needs very well, for a number of years.
We're proud of the fact that we were. personally, a member of
the committee which initiated the voluntary service in the very
beginning. When the county was notified It had to provide a viable
ambulance service, many years ago, a group of us went to the city
of Vero Beach to inspect and see how they were handling their vol-
untary service. Gulf County's was patterned after theirs: one of
the first to be established in the state of Florida.
* SINCETHAT TIME', 'MANY people' have given unselfishly o6f
their time to train for and staff our county ambulance services,
free of charge. They have given many hours of their time and tal-
ents.
You see, the same state order which stipulated that all coun-
ties would provide acceptable ambulance service, set the meaning
of the word "acceptable". It meant that the crews must-and we
stress the word, "must"-be trained to meet Emergency Medical
Technician qualifications, inIorder to staff these vehicles.
This meant many hours of medical training for the en tire staff.'
It meant learning CPR. It meant giving each other untold numbers
of shots in order to learn how to give them properly. It meant, long
sessions of practicing applying bandages,- recognizing medical
problems, training how to treat many physical ailments to assure
arrival at an aid station in as good or better shape than when the
crews found them.
TWO OPTIONS ARE BEING considered to replace this last
voluntary service: enlarging the ALS service being provided the
south end of the county or hiring Bay County's service to operate
over here. also.
We opt for an expansion of the professional service already on
board in the county. It will be more responsive to our people and
our government to do so. It will be just another way the county
can encourage growth in Gulf County, as well as meet a definite
need.

Hunker Down With Kes byKesley olbert.



Places In The Stomach


Now, Jerry., Peak is a Ilot
smarter than I am. We were riding
back from Talladega this .past
weekend when he got to obseivihg
all the eating places that literally
lined both sides of the road for
near 'bout the whole trip. "RHow;
could this many people be 'eating'
out' at the same'time?"
There's one that sent.us pon-
dering :for 'a'.while. '
We finally came to what fKe
thought was a vacant comer, only
to realize as we neared a founda-
tion 'had een: poured for .a
Church's F'ried Chicken! Surely,
we're gonria reach a' point where
we build .rmiore places to eat than
we've. got people to put in the
seats. 'Course, if that is the case.
somebody has forgotten to point
that out to -McDonald's, Burger


King. Hardees ......
I feel sorry for the chickens
and the cows.
Every place was full. That was
the amazing thing!
In one stretch we saw two
Oriental restaurants within shout-
ing distance of each other. I didn't .
know there were. that. many
Chinese living in Dothan .
We passed an, Applebee's, a
Cracker Barrel, Ruby Tuesday's
and a Longhorn. Steak place all
lined up in a row. And, again, '
every parking place was full You
reckon, all, these .-people's, stoves .
went out at the same time? Have
they not.heard of T.V. dinners?
How 'bout some cheese and crack.. .
ers, milk and bedtime?
"Do you recko'r nobody cooks
at home anymore?" I can't remem-
her whether it was Jerry or me that
voiced the question. But if there's
a lot of housewives listening in'
today-it was Jerryl
I'm not about to pursue that -;
line of thinking ..
It just seems, to me that it's


"more American" to be home eat-
ing .... like my Mother and Daddy
did it . I tell Cathy that all the
Lime .
And without a doubt we must
be close to the saturation point
with eating out places. You just
can't keep building and building.
'Sooner or later someone has got to
.put up a great little seafood place
In a location where no one wants
little seafood! We're breeding ham-
burger joints faster than we're
breeding people!
Convenience? Choice? Chic?
Social? Necessity ... I have no
-clue as to :the underlying causes
driving us to the roadside eateries
in droves. I'm sure there's some
deep. hidden, psychological forces
at work here. Or perhaps it just
appeals to the gypsy in all of us. Or
it could be a by-product of the
super interstate highway system
that made the whole country more
mobile in the late 60's. Maybe it
was a smart old Kentucky' colonel
who needed some cash ....
I also don't understand all of
the streamlined specialization


today. You have steak places, fish
places. chicken places, barbeque
places, taco places, hamburger
places, cold cut sandwich places,
fried green tomato places, yogurt
places you just can't stroll into the
Bulls-A-Lot Steak Pit and order up;
turnip greens an yams. That

we're in the build-a-house-for-.
every-food-group mode.
Back growing'up, we only had
one restaurant in the whole town.
The City Cafe was squeezed in
between McCadam's Tractor and
Implement Company and the rail-
road tracks. You could go to that
one place and get chicken, ham-
burgers, pinto beans, barbeque,
catfish ..... anything you want-:
- ed. And listen, the tomatoes came
fried, stewed, raw, in a sandwich,,
as a soup, sauteed, red, green, yel-
low or a la mode.
You didn't have to ride all over
town looking and. trying to decide
"which one today?" The juke box

booth and the two gallon jar of

tunity to change the entire consti-
tution, should we desire to.
Mostly, we leave it alone, feeling
the several changes will harm us
more than the older version.
This year, we have a total of 13
amendments which have been
prepared for us to .offer 'the final
opinion on. Most of these amend-
ments were prepared for our deci-
sion by a Constitutional Revision
Committee. This committee has
held several pubic hearings
throughout the state, in an effort
to reveal the various changes
being suggested.
But, regardless of the hear-
ings, which went on for better
than a year-one of which was
held in the vicinity of Port St.
Joe--the majority of the citizens of
Florida don't know what language
the amendments contain. The
ones who do know, and under-.


stand the language, are reluctant
to approve the various amend-
ments.

ALTHOUGH THERE ARE 13
amendments, only the first four
were decided on by the
Legislature, an elective body. The
other nine. were authored by the
committee [not elected] for your
perusal.
The first four amendments
each deal with mostly just one
item. The other nine, each take a
number of items under considera-
tion for change-some acceptable
and some not acceptable to people
in every area of Florida. There is


no "lIne item" choice of these mu|
tiple amendments.
Even though the state spent
great amount of money print
the amendments in virtually eve
newspaper in the state of Florid
twice, the chances are that ma
of you. didn't take the time to re4
them. They. were printed in. minus
detail, explaining every facet
each amendment and covered s
eral newspaper pages.
The: Star carried the printed
version of the amendments in tl
issues printed the .last week
August and again the last week -
September. The amendments co
ered an; eight-page section.
'"f.


vided attention, as there Is enough
fodder in them that the voters
need to make a decision o n.
For instance, Number one
change allows local officials to
decide whether or not a'piece, of
property is "historic" enough to
deserve a change in its ad valorem
tax structure. No longer will the
owner have to be actively engaged
in renovating the property to get
taxing changes.
Number two allows that the
electric chair does not have to be
the method by which Florida exe-
cutes criminals. If the chair is con-
sidered cruel and unusual pun-
ishment by the federal govern-
ment, an acceptable method of
execution may be adopted without
passing another law.
The third item gives local offi-
cials the say-so over whether or


in branch offices of counties.
Nothing startling there. '

BUT, THE OTHER nine are
matters of a different nature.
For instance, number five cre-
ates another conservation agency,
joining together the salt and fresh
water fish commissions, into one
Fish and Wildlife..Conservation
Commission, removing the legisla-
ture's exclusive: authority over it;
authorizes the power to bond to
raise funds and restricts. the dis-
posal of state lands designated for
conservation purposes.
A lot of power, uncontrolled by
the voters.
The rest of the amendments
go on like this one, containing
good and bad sections in each.
The amendments do every-


tional amendment. which wasn't;
fully understood by the voters,
received a negative vote. A fdw:
years, ago, the ploy was used to
apply a negative vote to actually be-
a vote in favor of the amendment,
but the voters were sharp enough'
to see through that one. i
It always surprises me to seef
just how comprehending the gen'-
eral public is. It's hard to put any-
thing over on them. Making an
amendment not easily understood
in order to confuse the voters,
doesn't work. If they don't fully
understand it, they'll vote it down.'
So the constitutional amend-;
ment committee may have wasted,
the time they spent holding public
hearings by writing their propos-,
als in "lawyer-ese" rather than just,
plain understandable language., 1

October 20, 1998
Dear Mr. Ramsey,
r Just to set the-record straight
orf the request for proposals for
the audit:
When Ralph C. Roberson
came before the Commission and
requested we send out proposals
for audit services, the
Commission agreed. We received
three proposals. Those were
S rnked in one, two, three order
with the present audit firm
Deloitte and Touche being ranked
number one, James Moore and
Company being ranked number
tyvo and Ralph C. Roberson and T.
Michael Tucker being ranked
number three.
These rankings are not just
listings of firms but were reached
after reading and rereading pro-
posals and comparing them
against the request. If an item
jasot addressed or omitted this
'&Ke ranking. Also. substi-
;5,vRhs were t .giveri credit in
th. rankings.
Each of the three firms were
given opportunities to make pre-
sentations In order of ranking.
After each firm made their pre-
sentation. we started negotiating
.i h Deloitte and Touche which
c* tinued to be ranked as the
inber one firm..
The. Commissioners consid-
ere d the past, performance of the

since 1982 which is contrary to
the editors "off and on" relation-
ship, time requirements, and the
number of personnel. Deloitte'
agreed to reduce their rate to
$26,000 for a five year contract
with a "COLA" adjustment.
They also reminded the
Commissioners that they send In
a team of three accountants for
the entire audit, a manager for
the last portion of the audit and
finally a partner will arrive who
has already reviewed the work to
this point. Deloitte and Touche
also carry liability insurance In
the amount of 810,000,000 which
more than adequately covers our
bond liabilities. Deloftte and
Touche also agreed to include the
added responsibility of the marina
audit In their $26,000 fee.
In order to see If the fee is rea-
sonable, we decided to check
other entities and determine what

Another consideration by'the

the proposer to list three city gov-

one request only, Deloitte and

three cities.
The City also considered the

Accountants:
"Audits are' strengthened by
Institutional continuity. It is a sig-
nificant benefit to be well
acquainted with a client's busi-
ness, operations and controls.
Experience shows that allegations
of audit failure occur much more
frequently when a firm is in its
first couple of years as a compa-
ny's auditor."
The Commission also. took
into consideration that
Blountstown's T. Michael
Tucker's client list was used as
the sole basis for the proposal
rendered by Ralph C. Roberson
and T. Michael Tucker. Five cities
and three counties were listed but
only one city with a budget over
$5,000,000.
James Moore listed nine
cities, two water management dis-
.:tricts and a transit authority.
.-Deloitte listed the three cities
requested with utility budgets
over 85,000,000, one county and
three county housing finance
agencies. Florida Turnpike
System, Florida Lotto. Florida
Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services, Florida
Housing Finance Corporation, St.
Johns River Water Management,
and Clay Electric Cooperative.
The Commission still feels
that they made the best selection
for. services based on resources,
versatility, commitment and
expertise. We also feel that
Deloitte has made a concerted
effort to keep fees .reasonable for
the past 16 years and will contin-
ue to do so. After all, we can
remember when the county an'd
city were paying approximately
the same fee.
I hope this answers the
questions that have arisen from
our action by both you and the
community.
Sincerely yours,
THE CITY OF PORT ST. JOE

Merchants Question Decision


October 16, 1998
Mayor Johnny Linton
City of Port St. Joe
P. 0. Box 278
Port St. Joe, FL 32456

Clears Up a
Misunderstanding
To the Editor:
It is my understanding that
my client. Tommy Montford, Is a
candidate for County Commis-
sioner District II in Gulf County.
Apparently. there has been some
rumor mongering either by oppos-
ing candidates or by their sup-
porters seeking to besmirch Mr.
-,Montford's reputation by allega-
tions of previous criminal activity.
Please be advised that I repre-
sented Mr. Montford in this case
which was found by the United
States Court of Appeals for the
Fifth Circuit to have absolutely no
merit whatsoever.
Mr. Montford, unlike his
opponents, has been" scrutinized
carefully by one of the second
highest courts in the country and
found to be innocent of any viola-
tion of any criminal statute of the
United States of America.
I would hope that this finding
reassures anyone who might have
been troubled by self-serving gos-
sip from.support of opposing can-
didates. Thank you for the atten-
tion to this.
Sincerely yours,
Gall.D. Nicholson


Dear Mayor Linton:
At the Port St. Joe Merchants
Association meeting held
Thursday morning, a resolution
was unanimously passed request-
ing that the City of Port St. Joe
reconsider their decision of hiring
an out of town accounting firm.
The City of Port St Joe, the
Downtown Merchants Assocla-
tion, the Chamber of Commerce
and many local businesses have
been trying to encourage local
development and hiring local peo-
ple for many years. We cannot
understand why the City of Port
St. Joe has chosen to use a firm
located in Jacksonville, Florida
rather than a local firm who hires
local people and has the potential
of hiring additional employees.
In addition to the location of
the firm, we do not understand
why the City chose to hire the
most expensive of the three firms
making proposals.
We hope that you and the
other commissioners will immedi-
ately reconsider your decision and
save the City of Port St. Joe much
needed revenue. Those funds
could be used 'for the advance-
ment of our economic develop-
ment, planning future infrastruc-
ture or other things that will ben-
efit everyone in this community.
Sincerely,
Port St. Joe Merchants Association
/s/ Jeannie Mims, President

FEMA Assists In


Renourishing Beach


Portions of Mexico Beach
eroded by Hurricane Georges are
currently getting some help from
FEMA to establish protective
berms along some of the severely
damaged areas.
Gulf Asphalt was awarded the
bid to apply up to 100,000 cubic
yards of sand to the beaches.
Project Superintendent Gene
Bell said the company is current-
ly hauling approximately 2,000
cubic yards per day to the beach


and constructing the berms.
Preble-Rish engineers are fol-
lowing FEMA's guidelines in
determining which sections of the
beach are receiving the berm pro-
tection, based on the amount of
erosion and width of remaining
beach.
Bell said the berms being
constructed are six foot high and
20 foot across at the peak, then
gradually slope back down to the
existing beach.


This dozer is clearing land for the new Geri-Care assisted living facility at Beacon Hill.


Mayor Defends Commission Decision


Gulf County Needs Jobs!


and YOU can help...



The Economic Development Council of Gulf County

needs your help on

Tuesday, November 3rd


What does this mean? This allows new or expanding businesses in Gulf
County to apply for tax breaks on ad valorem property taxes by meeting
certain employment requirements.

How would this help Gulf County? Tax incentives such as this help us
to attract businesses to our county. This offers businesses a financial
advantage to relocate or expand in Gulf County.

Do other counties offer this? Yes. To remain competitive in attracting
new businesses to their area, and t6 keep growing businesses from leaving,
many counties throughout the state of Florida already have this tax incen-
tive in place.


You can help create more jobs in Gulf County.

Your vote is needed!

compare apples to apples.
Other Issues Discussed
Houston Whitfield asked
McGuffin where he would hire the
back-up crew from. Whitfield
stated that results from a straw
ballot of the Wewa squad's mem-
'bership showed none of' them
would be willing to work with the
South Gulf County squad if they
manned the service.
This statement prompted sev-
eral questions from others pre-
sent at the workshop concerning
their willingness to work with Bay
personnel, but not other Gulf
County crews.
All in all. the bulk of public
comment praised both providers
as excellent services doing a very
good job. But, two basic schools
of thought existed-those who felt
because of the history of a close
working relationship with Bay,

they should get the service, and
those who felt the service should
remain local, keeping the jobs In
Gulf County.
Dr. Michael Barnes. director

behind them in their efforts to
provide ALS service stating. "I
think this will be very good for the
community."

Tommy Knox set another work-
shop on the ALS service for

out it was the patient's choice
which hospital they would be
taken to when transported by the
services.

that is faster and easier to make than
the yeast-dough \ arietN. Top the crust
with pizza sauce, ground beef and
plenty of mozzarella cheese, then
arrange pimento-stuffed olives on top
to create pairs of scary e'es. This
pizza may look spooky, but it tastes
"spook-tacular."

Wedges, bake shortbread cookie
dough in a pizza pan. Frost the cook-
ie with vanilla frosting, then decorate
it with yellow- and orange-colored
"sugars. Separate the cookie into
wedges, and 12 giant candy corn
pieces magically appear.

Kearce Says "Thanks"


To the people of Gulf County,
I would like to say "thanks"
for the Incredible support you
have provided to the Wewa High
School baseball program. The
financial help and fan spirit has
helped Wewa baseball to steadily
climb the ladder and become one
of the top 10 baseball programs in
2A.
A special thanks goes to our
"Sign Sponsors," Preble-Rish
(Ralph Rish), Wewa State Bank,
Billy Traylor (county commission-
er), and last, but certainly not
least. Larry Mathes, (principal),
Jerry Kelley, and the Gulf County
School Board. Without the ongo-
ing help of the above mentioned
people, WHS baseball would not.
be at its current level of success.
When I first' accepted the
head baseball job four years ago, I
would have never dreamed that,
we could accomplish all we have
in such a short period of time A


combination of great players,
parental support, assistant
coaches, and fans have provided
"Gator Baseball" with the boost it
needed to vault to the top.
In the last four years, WHS
has won 79 games, been to the
"Elite 8" twice, made it to the
"Sweet 16," and won a district
championship.
Some off the field accomplish-
ments that are just as impressive
include the renovation of "Gator
Field." In four short years, the
field has gone from an average
facility to the pride of our pro-
gram. I might be a little partial,
but I think we have the nicest
complex in North Florida!
It's with much sadness that I
"leave WHS and Gator baseball-
these past four years have been
ftrly 'wonderful. I will always
cherish the memories of the great
folks of Gulf County. If I enjoy my
new career half as much as teach-


ing/coaching, I will be fulfilled.
Just like God led me to Wewa.
he is now leading me elsewhere--
I hope the folks in Arkansas are
as gracious. giving, and fnendly
as you guys! I can only hope that
over the past four years we've
been together that I have made a
small difference in people's lives-
YOU sure'have In mine!!
Thanks for all your support
and great memories. Best wishes
and God bless you.
Sincerely.

herd. We've reduced the ratio of'
bucks to does down to about 1:2.
It used to be a lot higher than
that," he added.
Kane said Moody is among a i
growing group of landowners who
are actively engaged In wildlife
management. Last year. 380 pri-
vate landowners and hunting
clubs enrolled 924,259 acres in
the andlerless deer program in
Northwest Florida, and a record
number of 6,431 antlerless deer;
tags were issued.
To apply to take part in the
program, he said landowners or,
hunting clubs must have at least
640 contiguous acres, or have at
least 150 acres that adjoins the
property of someone already
receiving antlerless deer permits
: Applicaions must be received
no later than 30 days before the
end of the hunting season, which :
Is different for the Northwest and
Central hunting zones. Kane said
that the sooner someone applies
the better, because of the time
involved in processing the appli-
cations.
Following the close of the'
hunting season, he said all par-
ties' who received permits are
Required to report how many deer
they killed arid other Information.
"Even though they hunt on
most of the farm. Moody said that'
an area is set aside where hunting
is not allowed so that he and oth-
ers can sit and watch the deer '
feed.

But we do need tourists and their


money. Vote "yes" on Referendum


S' Tourist Development Tax. And

thi is why...





The Tourist Development Tax (or "Bed tax") is a tax
paid by tourists who come here for a vacation. They pay the
tax; we don't. Part of the funds collected will be used to
market to the kind of tourists that we want to come here
(family oriented). The rest of the tax goes to build facilities to
be used by everyone.


Unlike the mosquito that takes
, .from u, tourists bring good money
into our county and leave it here. We
have an opportunity to increase that
income by first imposing the tax, and
then getting more of the right people
to come here; those that will spend
money in our county.


Let's take charge of the situation. We need to plan for
the county's future as to tourism. And we need to insure that
we will have adequatefacilities for them when they (and we)
want to use them. The Tourism Development Tax is
designed to do just that.




Any Way you Slice it, it's good for

Yes, it is true, if your Heating
and Cooling system is not a high
efficiency system you are wasting
money.
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.

Fishing Report
October 11th to 19th '
The kings are here in small schools and if you are fishing near one
you will catch a few nice ones. I expect their numbers to increase with
the cooler weather moving in. 'The Spanish are just about everywhere
and most are quite large. This year has been the best for Spanish in a
long time.
Offshore fishing is still producing good catches of grouper, black
snapper, black fin tuna, and kings. The fishery for red snapper is closed
beyond the nine mile limit which marks the state and federal boundary.
Also, red snapper caught in state waters must be 16 inches in length.
There's plenty of snapper in state waters on the reef balls and other reefs.
We look forward to plenty of good fishing before the winter fronts start
moving in.

THE DANGER OF
MAIL ORDER PRESCRIPTIONS


Discovering places and things can be pretty
discouraging. When Columbus arrived on this
continent nearly 500 years ago his crew was sick,
disheartened and ready to turn back. Even the
medicines they carried were primitive and not
sufficient to help with their problems.
Another more modern group of explorers are
those who toil in research laboratories, looking for
and testing new drugs. Fortunately, these pioneers
did not turn back either and today many once feared
diseases have been cured. Hopefully, in the not too
distant future more new disease fighting medicines
will be appearing in'"ur pharmacy laboratory.

Sheri Tells Rotar of Some of ats" H Wears

Sheriff Tells Rotary of Some of "HatS" He Wears


"Above all, I hate
drugs.., what they
do to people.. ."

Gulf County's Sheriff, Frank
McKelthen, spoke to the Rotary
Club last Thursday, telling the
club some of the activities his of-
fice is responsible for carrying
out.
The office runs several ongo-
ing projects, other than the ap-
prehension and arrests of crimi-
nals.
For instance, the department
supports a full time DARE pro-
gram in the public schools. This
is primarily an anti-drug educa-
tion program among the students
which, according to Sheriff
McKeithen, is receiving good re-
ports and remarks from depart-
ments in neighboring counties, as
well as throughout Gulf County.
This program is operated by
Deputy Mark Cutler. The deputy
received hours and hours of spe-


cial training from the FDLE to
prepare him for his job.
Another thing the Sheriff
works on, is the image his depart-
ment members present to the
public. 'We have a sharp honor
guard which is seen at funerals,"
he said.
Another deputy is given the
responsibility for serving all war-
rants and summons for the
county. "Believe me, there are
many of these types papers which
are the duty of the Sheriffs office
to serve. With only one man
charged with this duty, we know
who to look at if they aren't
served,"' he said. 'We serve papers
sent to us from all over the state,
in addition to those generated
here in our own county,".
McKeithen stated.
'We're frugal with spending
our budget," he said. "The county
commissioners have their prob-
lems with raising the money to be
spent by the county officers and
we're careful how we spend it."
The jail comes under the pur-
view;of the sheriffs department to


operate. 'We're eventually going
to have to replace the jail. The
one we have now is in tatters. We
are constantly making repairs
every day to keep it useable. The
facilities are clean, but the facili-
ties, themselves, are a basket
case," he said.
"All of these things receive
our attention along with many
others. Above all, I hate drugs. I
hate what they do to people and if
I can do anything to punish those
who deal in them, I'll do it. We
are getting complaints every day
from neighboring counties for
driving dealers out of our county
and into theirs'. They just move
over to another county and set up
shop again. We have a "Joe Cor-
ner" over in Bay County which Is
named for the dealers who have
been driven out of Port St. Joe
over into Bay County."
The Sheriff said he had no
idea his department was getting
after every drug dealer in the
county. 'We are getting after eve-
ry dealer we learn about! anrd will
continue to do so," he declared.

1" GPH Upgrades Diagnostic Equipment


The .Respiratory Therapy
Department at Gulf Pines
Hospital has recently received
and placed into; operation some
new equipment which dramatical-
ly upgrades its diagnostic capabil-
itY'... .
"Our new arterial blood gas
analyzer, an ABL 5 unit manufac-
tured by Radiometer, is the
current state-of-the art in blood
gas analysis," said Drexel Heath,
Director of the hospital's
Respiratory Therapy Department.
Results of arterial blood gas
studies provide physicians with
valuable information about al
patient's respiratory, cardiac, and
acid/base balance systems. any
of which may be life-threatening if
allowed to remain out of normal
ranges.
According to Heath, "The new
blood gas analyzer is fully com-
puter automated and performs its
own calibrations and internal
diagnostics every half hour. This
meets and exceeds all regulatory
agency requirements and permits
us--To produce almost instanta-
neous test results for the use of
our physicians."
The new equipment is expect-
;) ed to reduce turn-around time on
critically important tests from 30
minutes to five minutes-an
important new capability, espe-
cially in assessing emergency
patients.
"We're also pleased to
announce the addition of a new
diagnostic tool which monitors
oxygen saturation in the blood
stream overnight," said registered
respiratory therapist Danny
Spruiell.
"Persons suffering from sleep


disorders will greatly benefit from
this pace age technology which
was originally developed by NASA
to monitor the medical condition
of astronauts while they were
traveling In space."
The new equipment involves a
probe which is placed on the
patient's finger or earlobe. This
probe has a small red laser light
transmitter, and a light sensor,
and is connected to a small,
hand-held computer which
detects how much Infrared light is
absorbed by the hemoglobin in
the patient's blood and records
these results in computer memo-
ry.
These calculations are then
downloaded into a larger comput-
er which interprets the large
amount of raw data collected by


New Fishing
Rules Approved
The governor and cabinet
approved on October 13 several
saltwater fisheries management
rules and rule amendments pro-
posed by the Marine Fisheries
Commission. In addition, the
commission has scheduled a
series of public workshops to
receive input on stone crab limit-
ed entry and Apalachicola Bay
shrimping proposals. Information
regarding these workshops fol-
lows this summary of the 13th's
governor and cabinet action:
Red Snapper Rule
This rule provides an auto-
matic closure of state waters to
Gulf of Mexico recreational red
snapper harvest when federal
waters are closed to such harvest,
effective November 1.
This action means that the
Gulf recreational red snapper
fishery will be closed in state
waters, beginning on November I
this year, and the fishery is
expected to reopen in state and
federal waters oh January 1,
1999.
Mullet Rule Amendments
These rule amendments
extend the designation of mullet
as a restricted species to waters of
the Florida Panhandle west of the
Ocklockonee River (which now
means that mullet is a restricted
species statewide), and prohibit
the possession and sale of mullet
taken in illegal gill or entangling
nets. These rule amendments
take effect on November 16.
Tarpon Tags Rule Amendment
This rule amendment sets the
total number of tarpon tags
allowed to be sold during the July
1 to June 30 license year at 2,500
(with 1,250 tags reserved for fish-
ing guides). This rule amendment
takes effect on November 16.


the hand-held computer and pro-
duces an easy-to-read, written
report for the use of the physician
which details the patient's overall
respiratory pattern and level of
blood oxygen saturation.
"We're delighted to be able to
make yet another enhancement in


the diagnostic equipment avail-
able here at Gulf Pines." said.'
Vince Ivers, M.D., medical staff
president. "We have a solid
Respiratory Therapy Department
and the addition of this new,
state-of-the-art equipment just
makes It better."

Are You
Without Sin?
"If we'say we have
no sin, we deceive our-
selves"
-I JOHN 1:8

'HE BOOK OF FIRST JOHN is! a letter
LJ'from The Father to His Little Children. We
knowitherefore, it is written to Christians. Chapter one
deals with our sin and The One we can trust to make it
right. The' Bible tells us in various places, no one on
.-this earth is righteous. However, believers are seen by.
God as righteous because the sacrificial blood of Jesus
covers their sins. Does that mean we should not try to
live righteously? Certainly not! God wants us. to not
.sin, and if we are born of His Spirit, we want that too.
Verse 1 of chapter two, shows the desire of God
'that we not sin, but tells us of the remedy when we do
sin. Jesus is our righteous Advocate, or representative
'at the throne of God's" Grace. Verse 2 says He is the
propitiation for our sins. To propitiate means to "make
right." That is exactly what Jesus does when we
walk in the light of God's Love He makes our sins
"right" in God's sight. Verse 3 talks'of'keeping His com-
mandments. That does not mean the Ten Command-
nments. Verse 10 explains that. Jesus' only com manmd-
ment was "Love God and each other. (See Gospel of
.John 13:34). When we love as we should, we would nev-
:,er sin against anyone. .
Christians "try".to live without sinning, but living .
in a sinful body of flesh makes them w.eak. 'Satan has
:;his.way with them at-times. When -this-hap0ehs, it usu- ,
ally brings guilty sorrow and disappoinitment. Some-
times to the extent they may feel at a distance from
God lost. But God does not want His children to feel
condemned over their lack of perfection. He tells us in
"Chapter 3, verse 20, "'Ifour heart condemn us, God is
greater than our heart, and knoweth all things." God
knows whether our Faith in Jesus is sincere, and He
knows.whether our manner of living is centered on try-
ing to please Him. God knows we are not perfect, but
He wants us to sincerely "try."
Verse 13 in Chapter 5 tells; us this Book of First
-John was written to believers so they could KNOW
they have eternal life. Thank you, Heavenly Father!

Christian life.
In the Old Testament we find, "Choose you this
day whom you will serve, but as for me and my
house we will serve the Lord." We have freedom to
choose. Christians choose good.

When writing; but with 'elections

comment that those candidates
who are promoting the "voucher"
system that would take money
from public schools need to look
elsewhere for employment., -
The voucher system can drnly
lead to further deterioration of the
public school system. If those
proposing vouchers as 'the cure-
all, would promote making it eas-
ier to remove disrupters and oth-
ers not .interested :in !learning
instead, it would have much more
immediate effect toward helping
to improve public school perfor-

ple of minutes."
I know some-
one who every day leaves my
class to go and smoke a ciga-
rette in the bathroom. My
teacher for this class knows so,
too. Mrs. (any teacher) has even
admitted it to the whole class.
So, why does Mrs. (any teacher)
continue to let him go to the
restroom? Is it against some
school rule to refuse a student
to use the restroom?
I know of other (any teachers)
who refuse students the privi-
lege to go, even if they are
straight "A" students. I know
that emergencies happen when
you're in class, but most of the
time you don't ask to go every
day in the same period.
I hope that Mrs. (any teacher)
realizes that knowingly letting a
student, out to smoke is wrong,
maybe even illegal. I'm not sug-
gesting she is intentionally fuel-
ing a student's habit, but maybe
they are taking advantage of
her.

The Harvest Festival Brings
.Much Profit
By Rebekah Peterson
This year's Harvest Festival
was a great success. Altogether,
the school made about 2,500 dol-
lars and we had an assortment of
activities for all to participate in.
Mrs. Karen Odom and Mr.
Tommy Odom set up a face paint-
ing booth and Mrs. Odom painted
over eighty faces. A few of the
other activities we had were the
coke toss, basketball throw, and
3 the Chorus sold pocket calendars.
l The chicken dinners our stu-
l dents and teachers participated
in selling were enjoyed by all. We
also sold hot dogs, baked goods,
and drinks.
While you dined on the won-
derful chicken that Mr. Benny
Roberts and helpers prepared.
you had a chance to hear the
4 Faith Christian School Chorus
S -perform, the fourth grade, and
see a puppet show. We also had
e some people from the community
volunteer to sing for us.
Faith Christian School would
like to send a big thanks to teach-
ers, parents, students, and
friends for helping in this year's
Harvest Festival..
