rowly re-elected Incumbent Gulf
County Commissioner Billy
Traylor. said "yes" to establishing
a tourist development tax, and
voted against offering property tax

Wewa Commission
S Conducts Meeting
Permanent workers for the
City of Wewahitchka got an early
Christmas present last Monday
when city commissioners ap-
proved a 35; per hour pay raise
for them during their regular
meeting. 7
The board also opened bids to
re-roof City Hall with a new metal
roof system. They have been
weighing out the advantages ver-
sus cost aspects of going back
with a flat roof or Installing a new
metal pitched roof system for sev-
.eral months.
Garrison Construction came
in as the low bidder at S37.558,
and Kent Construction's bid was
$54,617. Board members decided
to review the two bids and make a
decision during their next regular
meeting.
The bo9rd also voiced their
unanimous, support for Bay
Medical to be the ALS ambulance,
provider for North Gulf County
Ambulance Service.

package for new and expanding
businesses locating in the county.
Billy Traylor (482 votes)
squeaked by challenger Tommy
Montford (453 votes) to .retaJn-his
seat as District 2 county commis-
sion representative.
S'The final outcome was in
question until the final absentee'
votes were counted. Precinct #4
(Overstreet) voted in favor of
Montford by a margin of 90 votes
to 65 for Traylor. But Precinct #2
reversed that trend, voting 459 to
325 in favor of Traylor.



City Begir
Port St. Joe city comrission-
ers tackled a full slate of business
during Tuesday's regular meeting
with garbage collection, the citvy
marina, rising insurance rates
and tripartite recommendations
topping the list.
City commissioners have dis-
cussed seeking requests for pro-
posals for garbage pick-up service
in recent weeks as they evaluate
the city's recycling program and,
garbage collection budget.
The board received one
request for proposal from Waste
Management Corporation to fur-
nish garbage collection within the


When absentees were count-
ed, Traylor received 58 votes to
Montford's 38, to win by the nar-
row 29 vote margin.
Tourist Development Tax
Gulf .County. residents said.
"yes" (1,999 to 1,670 votes) to
charging 'a' ',2% tourist develop-
ment tax on temporary rental
units paid by visitors to the area.
The funds generated can only be
used to promote tourism and
tourist-related facilities.
As TDC Chairman Tommy
Knox put it, "Tourists can now
help bear some of the expenses


for tourist-related activities."
"No" To Tax Incentives
Voters opposed providing
property tax exemptions to new or
expanding businesses as part of
J'.an incentives package to promote
businesses to locate in Gulf
County and bring jobs to the area.
By a margin of 2,007 (no) to
1,828 (yes), the county-wide refer-
endtum failed to pass.
Gulf County Economic
Development Committee mem-
bers had hoped to add temporary
property tax relief as a lure to
entice new businesses and indus-


tries to locate in Gulf County as
part of their economic promotion
package.

Discussion of Garbage/Trash Service


Waste Management quoted
$10.50 per month as a residential
collection fee for twice per week
garbage pick-up. City residents
currently pay $14.50 per month
for garbage and trash collection
service.
Commercial customers would
pay S3.35 per cubic yard, plus
dumpster rental for one-time per
week service. A sample charge
outlined ;on the proposal listed
pickup on a two yard container.
one time per week pick-up at
$29.00 per month. The coitimer-
cial rate for one time per week


pick-up for a 64 gallon cart (like
residential carts) was $16.50 per
month.
Mayor Johnny Linton verified
with Waste Management repre-
sentatives that the service would
revert to a non-recycle program
eliminating the need for local res-
idents to sort and separate their,
garbage as is currently being
done.
Linton also discussed local,
residents placing yard trash in
the containers to help reduce the
city's; expenses in trash collecting
services.


The city currently is very
close to breaking even on its
garbage collection service, but
ends up subsidizing approximate-
ly $150,000 annually for yard
trash and debris pick-up.
Commissioner Damon McNair
pointed out, "If we still have to
pick up .trash, then we're not
going to be saving very much
money."
Public Works Superintendent
Terry McDaniel is also plugging in
figures to determine what it would
cost the city to collect garbage
without the recycle program in


place, to determine if the city can
maintain the service at a similar
or less charge.
Commissioners will continue
the meeting at 6:00 Thursday
evening, November 5, and further
discuss Waste Management's pro-
posal, as well as the city's other
options for handling garbage ser-
vice aid trash collection.
Insurance Rate on the Rise
Mayor Linton informed board
members. the city had received
notification from Blue Cross-Blue
Shield Insurance Company that

Large Number of Citizens Attend Ambulance "Workshop" Last Thursday


Between 150 to 200 people
crowded into the old Gulf County
Courthouse in Wewahitchka last-
Thursday evening to voice their
opinions on how ALS (Advanced
Life Support) ambulance service
Should be provided for the north-
ern portions of Gulf County.
: Gulf County commission
chairman Tommy Knox had.
called for the second of two work-
shops on the issue to be held in
Wewahitchka as the board looks
at what firm to use as provider for
the service.
Sea ~lier reported in The
Star, two basic options .being con--
sidered are-expand the South
Gulf County service to a county
wide system, or hire Bay
Ambulance Service to provide ALS
response in north Gulf County.
! County commissioners, have
given their full support to upgrad-
ing the mostly volunteer basic life
support (BLS) service currently
offered in. north Gulf County to
the ALS system. Giving their sup-
port has proven, to be the easy
part though-as they: begin to
make final plans on whom to use
as ALS provider, and exactly what


form and degree of service to pro-
vide.
The board was united In a
stand to try and have ALS service
in place within 90 to 120 days
during its September 22nd regu-
lar meeting. They don't seem
quite as in sync as they .decide
whom to use as a provider for the
service. Residents from the north-
ern end of the county have made
it very clear they want Bay
County's .ambulance service' as
their provider.
The resounding theme during
both workshops seems to be-
"we've worked with Bay and
they've worked with us; we know
the service and employees and
they've had that close working
relationship throughout the vol-
unteer service's existence."
"It's not that we have
anything against south Gulf
County, but rather we just like
Bay," one resident said.
Apples to Apples
One of the matters board
members had hoped :to clear up
during the second public session
was the price versus services
offered by Bay Ambulance and


South Gulf County.
During the first public meet-
ing, Bay had offered to provide
ALS service for $35,000 while
South Gulf County offered service
at what equated to approximately
$165,000. However, the two ser-
vices were no where close in what
was offered.
Bay offered an absolute mini-
mal ALS service, while South Gulf
County's plan was on a full scale
system, complete with a full line
ALS crew station in Wewahitchka
and a swing back-up crew cen-
trally located in the county to
back up both ends when the need
arises.
Commissioners had asked
Gulf County Chief Administrator
Don Butler to request that both
parties provide figures on like
plans during Thursday's meeting.
On the surface,. South Gulf
County's prices for the four levels
of plans presented looked much
higher than Bay's. But, Bay's fig-
ures Included the price for the
service, plus Bay doing the billing
and receiving all revenues paid for
ambulanceI service by patients

Shut Down

Elaborate Set-Up
In Perps Home
Investigators from the Gulf
County Sheriffs Office arrested
31-year-old Gary Cox, who lived
at Cox's Landing in Wewahitchka,
this weekend for cultivating man-
juana. Officers found an elaborate
and sophisticated operation in
Cox's house after they entered
armed with a' search warrant.
iTwo bedrooms in the resi-,
dence had been walled with sheet
rock, covering the windows. The
rooms contained 39 high-grade
marijuana, plants ranging from
one to four feet tall. The value of
the plants estimated at maturity
would be in the S30.000 range.
The "grow rooms" had 20 dif-
ferent four foot fluorescent lights,
commonly known as "grow lights"
covering the marijuana, as well as
a 1,000 watt fixture which was
connected to the ceiling on a rail
which was operated by a timer.
This light would travel from one
side of the. room to the other to
heat and provide light, which is
essential in marijuana growing.
Several books on growing
marijuana, as well as plant food,
peat moss and potting soil were
found in the rooms. Plumbing had
also been hooked up in the one
room, so the plants could be
watered from the inside. Four
fans were on in the rooms
because of the tremendous heat
given off by the lights.
Officers confiscated notes and
documents regarding the cultiv'a-
tion, as well as other possible sus-
pects. Officers also confiscated a
computer system which con-
tained a large amount of pornog-
raphy.
Investigators from U.S.
Customs' who specialize in
pornography have been called in
and more charges are expected.

Generous -

WE WONDER HOW IT IS, that a community as financially
depressed as Port St. Joe can come up with $3,000 for such a
needy organization as the March of Dimes; especially after two
months of being "blessed" with a paper mill shutdown.
There's either some independently wealthy people here or i
some truly generous folks who are determined to share what they
have with those in need. It reminds us of a Sunday School lesson
we had last Sunday, where Paul led the Corinthians and other
gentile churches-poor themselves-to take an offering for the
Jewish Christian churches at Jerusalem. The crux of the lesson
was that the Corinthians needed to give the offering more than the Bo
Christians at Jerusalem needed to receive it. Ir
The people of Port St. Joe felt they needed to give to the cause ga
of birth defects more than the March of Dimes needed their So
money. m1
NOT ALL CHARITIES ARE TREATED so generously, but all lov
charities aren't the March of Dimes, either. he
so'
Nqt all charities can lay claim to developing-by their steady
contribution of dimes-a cure for their targeted disease. Some
have an even more complex disease to tackle and some just waste Jc
what money is given them. The folks in Port St. Joe know the dif- Ac
ference.- '. ,
This is the season of the year for needy causes to tug at your
heart strings 'with drives for funds and for "bringing
Thanksgiving/Christmas to the needy". You'll have ample oppor-v
tunity to do your part, Just don't get sucked in by the emotion of
the times and contribute to every request. Select the ones to sup-
port which have a history of making a difference in people's lives.
PEOPLE WHO HAVE A NEED at Thanksgiving/Christmas,
also have a need a week, a month, and a year after
Thanksgiving/Christmas. The need for food is just as great. The
need for clothing is just as great. The need for medical and finan-
cial aid is just as great these other days also.
We suppose it is the experience of being on short rations which
stirs the generosity of our people to help their neighbors. The peo-
ple know what it feels like to have needs themselves.


Congratulations On 75th

THE STAR WISHES TO JOIN the remainder of the commu-
nity' in congratulating the First Baptist Church of Port St. Joe on
the occasion of its 75th anniversary. It has had some good, loyal
members who knew what the mission of a church should be and
carried it forward. With such founders as the J. A. Connells
[whose daughter, Hazel, still plays the organ at Long Avenue
Baptist Churchl. and Mrs. W. J. Daughtry, they couldn't miss.
We suppose Mrs. W. J. Daughtry taught every generation of
boys in Sunday School that ever lived in Port St. Joe between the
foundation of the church until her death in the 80's. Mrs.
Daughtry and her famous hat were trademarks in Port St. Joe for
many years.
BEINQ-THE SECOND .ORGANIZED church in Port St. Joe

their credit they assisted the new Baptist congregation to become
active. The Methodists and Baptists have stood in the gap for all
these years in Port St. Joe, building new churches and being
responsible for others.
We were one of the 44 members to step out of the First Baptist
Church to become Long Avenue Baptist Church and as such. con-
sider ourselves as a part of this illustrious history.
One thing which happened to the First Baptists, though:
During the 50's, when they were assisting the White City
Baptists build a new church building; the first attempt burned to
the grourid tight after it was completed, and just before the con-
gregation was to meet in it for the first time. It was to the First
Baptists' credit that they never missed a beat. A new building was
started the following Monday morning-the building they occupy
to this day. *
IT IS AN ILLUSTRIOUS history claimed by the First Baptists.
It doesn't seem like only 75 years, however, especially when one
remembers most of the staunch early members of this solid
church congregation which has meant so much to the people of
PorttSt. Joe. as have all of-our churches which came along later
after the ground was broken, so to speak.

I Could Have Been Chosen for the Space Tr,; I Qualify,


I MISSED OUT on a golden
opportunity last week. I had my
attention averted somewhere else
and this opportunity just slipped
me by.
I didn't know the USofA was
looking for an old man to send off,
into space. I just missed getting '
the appointment by that much! :
I've been told that I am spacy, at
times, so I figure I had a leg up on.
Senator John Glenn. Besides that,
Glenn is older than I am. I figure
NASA would rather have a younger
old man travel into space than to
have the 77-year-old Glen n,,
I fit the bill. I am a genuine old
man, but I am not as old as John
Glenn. Other than age, I could
edge him out in the qualification
because,. I wouldn't. need
Metamucil 'tablets as extra bag-
gage. I am notoriously "regular", if
you know what I mean.
It was just *my kidneys I had
trouble with a while back, and
they take care of that need with a
bag strapped to the astronaut.

They had to strap a bag to Glenn,
;:sp itwould not have taken extra
preparation or extra baggage to
take care of that "need" with me,
either.

I AM NOT. MUCH of a feature
writer, but I figire'I have had more'
practice at it than Glenn has, and
would be more capable or writing
down my experience as the "oldest
man in space",. .'. which seems to
be the only reason Glenn is going
to take the trip, anyhow.
Glenn-has already-been on a
trip into the blue. He took it for the
first time back in the 60's.
Someone else should get the


opportunity this time;' somebody
who's a tad younger and with a
different outlook on travel in
space. Likely, Glenn is still nurs-
ing that. "It's,a .long walk back,

^ Considering His Other Miracles, He Can Make A Need for Paper


To All the Ministers, Pastors.
Preachers, and Assistant
Pastors in Port St. Joe:
The Lord has put upon my
heart once again to write this let-
ter to all of you to let you know
that the people in this community
are hurting once again, and we
need to assemble again.
I don't believe that the minis-
ters know the urgency for another
assembly. The people in this
community are losing hope. They
have no faith that God can do
anything but fall.
This is a time of Thanksgiv-
ing; why don't we assemble in the
Port St. Joe High School gym and
give thanks and praises unto the
Lord. The Lord Is calling for a day
of repenting; for all the churches
to repent.


Many of our churches seem to
have lost their vision to win souls
for Christ. The Lord is calling for a
day of repenting, praying and for
praising Hini. ,' '
This city is 'slowly becoming
another Tomb Stone Territory or
Dodge- City, which, is, or were,
booming towns," but now are
ghosttowns. Port St. Joe used to
be a 'booming town-in the late
50's-which had Kenney's Mill. a
box plant, a seaport. a booming
railroad business, a booming fish-
ing business and a paper mill.
And the paper mill's future is
at stake. If you could look back
and see if this Is not the sign of a
ghost toy4n for Port St. Joe. Let's
see what God can do when He
steps in. If He can turn water into
wine, He can make a need for


paper.
If He can heal the sick, and
give sight to the blind, he can
make a need for paper.
If He can feed a multitude of
people with two fish and five
* loaves of bread. He can make a
need for paper.
If He can part the Red Sea
Sand let His people go through on
dry land, he can make a need for
paper.
We have tried the paper mill.
let's try Jesus: He will never leave
us nor forsake us, or see us beg-
ging bread..He's just waiting for
us to repent, pray and praise
Hfim. and when praises go up, the
blessing comes down.

Bro. Billy C. Dlxson, Sr.


My Appreciation to Gulf Pines Hospital and Staff


Letter to the Editor:
For years I have referred to
our local,Gulf Pines Hospital as a
bap -aid.staio,-.but npy I thank ,.
God for that hospital, 1i t,aff and,
personnel. They did a wonderful
Job of treating me for that electri-
cal shock. I feel they saved my
,w life.
On the 7th of October, I was
finishing up a small electrical job
in my attic. It was hot. dirty and
late: I got careless. At the last
rmin'ute, I decided to cut off the
excessive length of wire. I laid the
wire down and reached for my
cutters. By accident, I picked up
and cut Into the wrong wire.
I then went into what seemed
like several minutes where the
electricity and I went round and
round. I could not let go. I could
not. speak. I could not do
anything. I gave up, accepting
this to be the end. I closed my
eyes and said. "Oh Lord, not now.
Please let me loose."
Immediately, the electricity
turned me loose. I realized'at once
that my left arm and hand was
useless. I pulled myself through
the attic until I got to the ladder
and carmie down_
I told my w e what .had hap-
pened, and I told her I would not

I also would like to thank all

other acts of kindness, and espe-
cially their prayers. Prayers do
make a difference. Thank you.

What Were You Thinking?


Dear Editor:
Yesterday on my way back to
the beach from taking care of
some business in PSJ, an elderly
gentleman had been run off the :'
road on his motorized scooter.:
Several of us stopped to give him -
assistance please print this
letter to the fleeing driver-
October 26, 1998
To whomever it was that ran
an elderly gentleman riding a
motorized scooter off of the high-
way in Mexico Beach, on Monday,
October 26th-I just want to ask
what were you thinking?,
What did you think when you
saw this person crossing the
highway ahead of you, then pro-
ceeded to run him off the road?
When you ran him off the road?
What were you thinking when you
drove on past while he lay on the
side of the road unable to move?


Were you afraid,.to stop and
-help him because you thought he
was badly injured, or perhaps
dead? Were you too busy to slow
, down or too busy to see if he
needed help?
Luckily, people did stop and
render aid. A local resident called
911 on his cell phone and within
a couple of minutes, Chief Mitch
Pollock and Lt. Brad Hall of the
Mexico Beach Police Department
arrived on the scene, followed
shortly thereafter by paramedic
Roger Jones.
Although the victim did go to
the hospital by ambulance, his
injuries were not life threatening
and he was discharged home later
that day. This story could have
ended tragically; I'm glad that it
did not.

South Gulf County currently
does the billing for the county,
including the north Gulf County
service, and has collected approx-
imately 890,000 .thus far this
year.
From that system's opera-
tions, Gulf County Emergency
Medical Director Shane McGuffin
estimates that the ALS service
should bring in approximately
8112,500 in the north end of the
county next year.
So, in order to get an accurate
comparison of the two prices, that
amount would have to be sub,
traced from the South Gulf
County proposal since McGuffin
had it included in his figures
while Bay's proposal did not.
Commissioners will probably
vote on the ALS provider and
which level of service to consider
during their next regular meeting
on November 10th.

Doctor's
discovery may
end obesity
HILTON HEAD.,S.C. -- A doctor'
belihees that a natural formula contain-
ing the extract of a small Asian fruit can
help cause significant weight loss.
Anthony A. Come. M.D. reported in
an American Medical Journal that the
formula. now called Bio-Re 3000.'.
caused patients to lose more than tw% ice
as much weight as those in a control
group on the same tat reduced diet.
Neither group %%as instructed to de-
crease the amount of food they ale or to
increase their exercise levels. An article
published in the .4Amercan Jouinal oj\
Clinical mNurition says that you''don'l
ha e to reduce the amount of food %o0'-
eat to lose %weight, provided that you.
limit the fat.
Dr. Conte says that animal studies
suggest the mechanism behind the
weight reduction is due to interruption
of the "Krebs Cycle", an important step
in .he body's fat storage process. He
says it may work the same way in hu-
mans. According to Dr. Conte, "The
best pan of this unique disco, ery is that
it is not a drug. but a dietary food
supplement. The Asian fruit, called
garcinia. is similar to citrus fruit found
in the United States w ith one big excep-
tion-- it may help some people fight
obestr While Dr. Conte's study' may be
preliminary, the exclusive North Ameri-
can distributor. Phillips Gulf Corp., is
calling the Bio-Re.x 3000 supplement
"Nature's Ideal Diet Aid."
According to a spokesperson for the
company. Bio-Re \ 3000 is now avail-,
able through pharmacies and nutrition'
stores or call 1-800-729-8446 or visit

Discussion-from Page 1A


Insurance rates would be going
up an average of 22% across the
board for city employees' cover-
age.
Linton said the letter gave a
45-day notice of the impending
increase.
After a brief discussion, com-
missioners decided to seek fur-
ther information on the matter
and continue addressing the
problem during Thursday's meet-
ing.
Tripartite Recommendations
In an apparent response to a
recent request by Florida Coast
Paper Company General Manager
Ferrel Allen to help reduce the
mill's wastewater treatment cost.
board members answered several
requests from the Wastewater
Treatment Plant Tripartite
Committee.
They decided to hold operat-
ing costs at the city's wastewater
treatment plant to $300,000 or
less per month, with a retroactive
effective date of November 1,
1998. The fee rate for the City of
Port St. Joe 'would remain at
$10,000 per month, and Arizona
Chemical would remain at
$206,000 per month; while Florida
Coast Paper Company would pay
the remaining portion of the
expenses.
The board also set a rate cap
of $315,000 for September and
October (1998) plant operation
expenses. '=' -
Board members agreed in
principal to a Tripartite
Committee request to keep the
plant's budget at 83.5 million per
year for at' least an 18-month
period.
Allen had pleaded to the
board'to help put the mill in as


much of an advantageous posi-
tion as possible as Stone's merger
with Jefferson-Smurfit seems to
be taking place, and an air of
uncertainty continues in the
paper industry.
In Other Business
*Decided to discuss and pri-
oritize several marina change
orders and request for proposals
to operate the marina at
Thursday's continued meeting.
*Agreed to meet with officials
from the Public Broadcasting'
System about possibly locating a
radio tower atop the city's water
tank at the intersection of Tenth
Street and Long Avenue.
*Favored a request from Sgt.
Butch Arendt to remove part of
the wording in a letter of repri-
mand to him from Police Chief
Jay Leffert that pertained to state-
ments he had made during the
board's last meeting. Arendt said
he had spoken to the board as 'a
citizen, not as an officer of the
police department.
*Terry McDaniel (Public
Works Superintendent) told the
board many of the sewer wash-
out problems throughout the city
had been caused by contractors
installing new underground
phone cables cutting through the
city's lateral lines and not repair-
ing them. Commissioners agreed
to contact the phone company
About the problem.
*Mayor Linton told the board
David and Trish :Warriner had
agreed to a very favorable lease on
property at the intersection of
Garrison Avenue and Niles Road'
that could be used as a soccer
field. Board Attorney Billy Joe
Rish was asked to iron out the
details of leasing the property for
that purpose.

ished first among the seven scor-
ing teams. Maclay placed second
with 83, followed by Lincoln in
third with 123.
Port St, Joe and Florida High
both totaled 124 points, but the
Sharks were awarded fourth place
as a result of a tiebreaker rule.
In the girls' individual compe-
tition, Casey Aberth of Niceville
placed first among the 50 runners


with a time of 20:02. Jennifer
.:Lynch of Niceville was second
(20:09) and Nicole Posey of North
Florida Christian placed third
(20:09).
BOYS' RESULTS
In the boys' team competition,
Niceville accumulated 30 points
and placed first among the nine
scoring teams. Maclay finished
second with 57 points; Lincoln,
third (102); Marianna, fourth
(136); and Wewahitchka, fifth
(216).
In the individual competition,
Phillip Laird, of Niceville, claimed
first with, a new course record
time of 15:39. Cedric Gillette of
Marianna, finished second (15:59)
and Port St. Joe's Rod Givens-

Following the meet, Coach

team really had a good meet con-
sidering the weather conditions.
After having perfect weather at
the Marianna meet just one week
earlier, the 80' temperature
Saturday caused the times to be
slow."
Gowan outlined some high-
lights of the meet, noting that Rod


Givens had set a new junior class
record despite being injured and
missing the last four meets.
He also noted that Josh Todd
established a new personal best
after missing several meets with
injuries. The "Purple Pack" coach


was additionally pleased with sev-
enth grader Josh Watkins in the
meet, as he recorded a new per-
sonal best effort and time.

improved times each week. At the
Niceville Invitational, the Lady
Sharks were led by Lacey
Johnson and Maclaine Howse.
each of whom posted personal
bests.
The following Saturday, at the
Panhandle Championships in
Marianna. it was a day for school
records, class records. and per-
sonal bests as Johnson set a new
school record for three miles with
a time of 21:40. with Howse also
breaking the school record with
21:43.
Howse's tiLne was her best by

established a new personal
record.
Last Saturday. the Lady
Sharks finished fourth out of 12
competing schools at the Port St.
Joe Invitational. Howse was first
to cross the finish line (21:47). fol-
lowed by Johnson (22:40). Jessica
Hill (22:56),. Melissa King (25:06)
Lyndsey Hill (26:01). and Latrika
Quinn (26:32).
J. Hill's time established a
new senior class record and
became her new personal best by
49 seconds. A new personal
record was also set by King by 42

With the district champion-
ships in Gainesville two weeks
away. Coach Eppinette described
his team's chances with this
statement-
"Our team's success at
District will depend on how hard
we work these next few days and
how much improvement our last
two runners make. Maclaine,
Jessica. and Lacey are right
where I want them to be: Melissa
has made steady improvement all
season, but Latrika is behind
because of surgery on her shoul-
der. She must really step it up
these last two weeks for us to
have a chance to advance to the
state championships."


The Gators' Myron Vann (22) and Tripp Atchison (11) combined efforts to make a tackle in
Friday night's 21-6 loss to Liberty County.

EVERY PRESCRIPTION IS
A "MIRACLE" MEDICINE


When your physician writes a prescription for you,
he has selected, from the many thousands of
different medicines in our prescription department
the exact one he judges will help you most. That is
why a prescription is usually more beneficial than
any over the counter medicine.
*For, the most important part of any treatment is
your physician's ability to diagnose the cause of the
trouble. That diagnosis is an extra ingredient which
makes each prescription a "Miracle" medicine.

JOHN 2:22

I had takE DRIVER looked at his road map p."There
it is," he exclaimed. "Now I know where we are!"
know when we travel ing, bnfutmilir territory, we must
depend upon a map to direct us. At least we should!
Once when I was on my way to Miami, I got lost. I
had traveled this way before, and I knew my way I
thought. I took a wrong turn on the way, and about 25
miles later, I discovered I was on a fishing camp road.
I had to turn around and go all the way back to where
I had taken the wrong turn. Then I looked at my map.
Living as a Christian is a lot like making a trip.s
We never know what lies around the next turn. We
know where we are going, but there are always signs
pointing in the wrong direction
wasGod has provided us with a wonderful "road map"o
The Holy Bible. It tells us exactly the way we should
go. But when we fail to lookthat it, and follow its direc-
tions, sometimes those other signs will lead us astray.
You see, Satan hasd a "church" too, and he wants
us to follow its teachings. Satan's church is called,
Worldliness, or Humanism. It teaches those who will
listen, that the Bible is not true. It teaches that.Jesus
wasjtest a greadst religious man, but not thesout of te God,
for there is no God. It teaches anything that is against
God's Truth,few are including that homosexuality is a normally
way of life, arid peop e are born that way. Jesus, look hast
the a p"swer to that be born again!
I Matthew 7:14,6 Jesus s cautioned us in' trthat
great heavenly road map, to enter in at the narrow'
gate which leads to eternal life, but stay out of the
widegatephesiand broad way which leads to destruction.
He said few are finding that narrow gate, but many
are entering the wide gate. Let's you and me look at
our "map" and be very careful to not take a wrong
turn.
In John 14:6 Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no one comes to the Fathert but by me."
Ephesians 2:8-9 Tells us "By Grace, you are saved.
through Faith; and that not of yourselves:- it~is the Gift
of God. .. Not of works...

Living by


Faith
In Habakkuk 2:4 we

find, "Behold he whose soul
is riot upright in him shall,
fail, but the righteous shall
live by his faith." "
Sometimes it seems that


uniren ienocL.s ..nurc sinners become winners
and the righteous fail. However, God declares that
'a righteous person lives by their faith.
Christians should live by faith. Too often we
depend upon money, power, influence, and all
sorts of things to make it in our challenging world.
God is faithful to all who claim Christ as their
Saviour.
However, faith is a much abused word.'
Sometimes in the human connotation it suggests
vague feeling and sentimental devotion. Some
believe it simply means that in the end everything
w\ill turn out all right for God's people. This is true,
but it goes beyond our earthly lives. Some rewards'
come on earth, and others wait until eternal life.

complete mixture of minor ele-
ments in the fertilizer application,

After the beds have been
properly formed, fertilized, and
very well moistened, cover each
with a sheet of one-and-a-halfr mil
black polyethylene plastic-the
recommended mulch for straw-
berries in Florida. Place soil on
the edges of the plastic to hold it
in place. Then cut slits In the
plastic where the plants are to be
inserted.
The plants should be set, in
double rows-one on each side of
the raised bed, about six inches
from the edges. Space the plants
12 Inches apart in the rows. Be
sure that no plants are set direct-
ly over the fertilizer band. because
this can lead to salt burn.
Always start with certified,
disease-free plants. Keep them
moist before planting, and plant
them in moist soil. Set them at
the correct depth. Do not cover
the crowns, and do not leave tops
or roots exposed. Spread the roots
in a fan shape and pack soil firm-
ly around them. With proper
maintenance, and a bit of luck,
next spring, you'll be enjoying
fresh strawberries from your own
patch.

grade class at Highland View Elementary School (shown in pho-
to above), learned about the truth campaign, the Kick Butts Act
and journalism campaign which is being publicized each month
in The Star, featuring the S.W.A.T. campaign against tobacco.
The youth-led tobacco-free campaign encourages all ,Gulf
County students in grades three to 12 to submit posters, poet-
ry, short stories, essays, cartoons, and any other creative writ-
ten or artistic ideas. Students should submit entries each month
based on the featured theme of the campaign.
Entries will be judged by fellow students selected by school
officials, and prizes will be awarded to winners. For more infor-
mation on the program, contact Regina Washabaugh.
RN/Coordinator, at 227-1271, ext. 100.

THANK YOU MITCH!
Hurricane Mitch. thank good-
ness. elected to go someplace else,
giving everyone on the coastal
Gulf region a chance to breathe
again. The storm defied every pre-
diction and stayed on a westerly
course, doing its damage much
south of the border. We certainly
should be grateful, listening to
the reports of damage caused by
this powerful storm.,
Thanks goes to those parents
who took the time to complete
and return the survey forms
recently sent home. At this time,
we have 54-if you still have one,
have your student bring it in or
mail it early this week. These,
plus surveys from teachers and
students, will be used as part of
the basis for next year's School
Advisory Plan.
Welcome to Chris Lee, our
new faculty member, as he
replaces Jay Kearce in our
Graduation Options Program.
We're glad to have him here. He
and his family live in Lynn Haven,
and he hopes to have the oppor-
tunity to join our athletic staff.
Friday night, the Gators bat-
tiled the #1 ranked Liberty County
Bulldogs, losing 21-6. A quick
glance at LCHS's roster shows
what it takes to compete at the
highest levels. Thirty-four players,
grades 10-12, with no ninth
graders on the varsity. Thirteen of
these are seniors; 10 ranged from
200 up to 325 pounds; with
another 10 ranging from 170 up
to 200. That's a lot of beef and tal-
ent.
The Bulldogs were without
their first team quarterback,
mending from a shoulder separa-
tion. The Gators had some gutty
performances, led by Bernard
Vann on offense and defense,
along with Tripp Atchison, but
were no match for the Bulldogs'
size and talent..
This Friday, the Gators travel
to Quincy to play Munroe High


School, a team that features'
quickness and. an excellent pass-
ing attack. Plan on the trip-butf
note--game time is 6:30 p.m., not'
7 p.m. as stated earlier. "'
,Jeremy Suber, injured and
carried from the field by ambu-
lance, was reported to be stable,,
and hopefully will be back at;'
school by the time you read this.
This was Jeremy's second injury
this season, so he'll probably'
refrain from contact sports until
he; his family, and his doctors
have time to thoroughly assess
his situation. Everyone wishes,
Jeremy the best-Liberty
County's coaches were on the
phone to me early Monday morn-
ing checking on his'progress.
Cross country district is
November 13 in Gainesville', A
week later, the state event is held
at North Florida Community
College campus at Jacksonville. A
couple of Gators have a good shdt
at going to state-good luck to all
the squad (and our one young
lady who runs). These athletes
train and run nearly all year and
deserve credit for their efforts.
Did you vote Tuesday? If you
didn't don't complain about who
gets. elected! But have, a good
week. Thanksgiving is comingl

efforts (and muscles) to clean up the yard of Miss Johnson who
lives in Beacon Hill. Pausing from their labor for a photo are,
from left, Margaret Barker, Arnetta Henderson. 84-year-old Miss
Johnson, and Dick Seefeldt. The recipient of the neighborly gen-

planted. Others helping in the task were Ginny Seefeldt. and
Ron and Carolyn Groleau.
