Puts Up a Lighted, Fixture Recently

The City of Port St. Joe is gearing up for the big Christmas
weekend celebration, which gets underway Saturday with a visit
from old Santa Claus. The jolly, &ed-sulted gentleman will arrive
in town across from city hall in ai helicopter at 1:30 to begin the
festivities.
Things will already be in progress when Santa arrives with the
day of food, festivities, and shopping activities. This will be Santa's
first visit of the year to Port St. J6e, sponsored by the Merchant's
Association, who have sponsoredihis annual visit and parade for
at least 45 years.
As usual, a large crowd Is; expected to turn out for the
Christmas celebration, and this year good weather is anticipated
to make his visit a little brighter.
Those In charge of the parade say that this year's production
will feature upward of 45 entries, with more still to come. The day
will also feature horses, shriners with their funny cars, and many
colorful floats and decorated automobiles. Clowns will circulate
through the crowd, handing out candy. There is to be no candy
thrown from vehicles along the parade route as a safety measure.
The Christmas parade, is especially designed this year to cheer
people up from their four months of anxiety about what the future
vill bring. The city's bright lights will be turned on Saturday
evening after the parade festivities are finished.

Scholz told commissioners
the Chamber has been working
for approximately six weeks with
a company interested in locating
in Gulf County.
She identified the firm as one
which will produce an environ-
mentally important priodutct capa-
ble of removing pollutants from
the environment.
In her letter to the board, she
explained the company has the
potential to employ between 200
and 300 workers in the manufac-
turing of the product.
"This is the most viable inter-
est shown In the past six months
from a company that matches the
overall assets of this county,"
Scholz said.
Letters were sent to both the
Gulf County and city commission-
ers requesting support for the
firm's new venture and possible
assistance they could offer.
City commissioners were
unanimous in offering their sup-
port and even proposed setting up
a workshop with the firm's repre-
sentative as soon as possible to
discuss the proposed venture.
City Attorney Billy Joe Rish

St. Joe has shown interest in

companies that located at the
site.
Scholz said the firm has dis-

Christmas Spirit!

WE'RE IN THE MONTH OF DECEMBER now and every-
thing points to Christmas.. It's the happiest season of the year.
Everything in the month has to do with the Christmas season.
There's no time for anything else.The question is, are you going to
be'like the Grinch which stole Christmas or are you going to add
to the merriest month of the year?
The month starts right off, Saturday, promoting the Christmas
spirit. A big celebration Saturday kicks the season off and jump
starts it with a big parade and festivities, just as the city does each
and every year.
It will be a full day of festivities and merriment, from the time
the Kiwanis Club offers its barbecued chicken dinners until' the
city's decorative lights are officially turned on at dusk.
INTERSPERSED SOMEWHERE. IN BETWEEN will be a
gigantic parade to usher in old Santa Claus, bringing him to the
city in style aboard a helicopter.
In the past few years, the merchants division has experiment-
'ed with various dates and times for the parade, but this year, they'
are returning to6 the tried and true date of the first Saturday in
December. No other date seemed to work quiteso well or have
fewer conflicts., The ,weather promises to cooperate and be nice for
the big day as well' as participation promises to be fantastic.' It
promises to be a beginning for the Christmas season you'll not
soon forget '
ACHRISTMAS PARADE AND CELEBRATION 'in a small'
town is something to behold. New York City has its Macy's .
Christmas parade, but it lacks the intimacy of a small town,

don't miss a thing! The entire parade is performed right before.
your eyes for easy viewing. There's no seeking the high ground in,
order to get an unfettered view. No disappointed kids who didn't
get a view of Santa Claus.
It's the best of both worlds. You-get. an unobstructed view fo't
both you ,and the kids, without the jostle and pushing from
crowds of folks. .I -
You'll be welcome to .attend the parade and festivities

Hunker Down With Kes


by Kesley Colbert


a'We Fixed It Ourselves


The cold and flu season is
upon us. You know fall has fallen
by the coughing and sneezing
going on around you. I think it has
to do with colder nights mixed with
warm afternoons or getting chilled
at the football game or the pollen
flying to beat the band . or
maybe we're just so dadgum
happy to make it through the mul-"
lygrums of dog days that our bod-
ies naturally tend to let down a lit-'
te .
Momma used to fortify us
against the elements with some
good common sehse' and a batch'
or two of old fashioned mountain
remedies.
Now, I doi't" know where you
come from.'uit if you think perilf'
clllin. extra-strength Bayer Aspirin
or a ten minute drive to a nearby
hospital is the only thing that will'
cure youi- ills'. .''let me educate
you a inite., '
SWe turned to "home doctoring",
out of necessity. We lived so far put
in the woods that by the time we
could get to town to have someone
"look at us" we'd either be dead or
well! And I' hated' to go see Dr.


Holmes because that chicken
under my arm would be peckin' on
.me all the way to his office.
We didn't get many colds.
That's because Momma would
make us put our shoes on when
the temperature dropped below
forty ,or so. And she would line us
up each morning before school for
our dose of cod liver oil. She'd put
Sa drop or two in with a tablespoon
of orange juice-it was' her 1950
version of Flintstone Vitamins.
Of course, colds are somewhat
like death and taxes, we couldn't
hardly no way avoid 'em every'
vear. Mother would make some
kind of tea out of ginger root.
:,iOugh, it hada- bitter taste going
'down. And she'd make you drink'
the whole cup!
Aunt Adell made us drink the
brine from the kraut. she ,had,
canned the year before. You. talk
about saltvy! We'd' have to 'drink
fifty gallons of water in the next
half hour to keep our insides from
shriveling up. There's folks around,
today that don't believe you can'
drown a cold. Hey, I'm living proof
that you can ,
Great-Gran would :rfiake 'a: ,
poultice out of sulfur. mustard,
garlic and a boiled onion squeezed
in to "wet' down"' the mixture.
There ain't nothing ever smelled
like it before, or since. I reckon 'it
worked. About two days with that
concoction tied around your neck'


and you'd better believe any sensi-
ble cold would be looking for a new
resting place!

The little kids were bad to get
the colic. They'd cry and fuss and
carry on something awful. A pinch
of baking soda in a spoon of water
would usually set them on the
road to recovery. If the colic wors-
ened at night, a light stomach
massage rubbing in some warm
castor oil would bring Instant
relief.
The 'croup was also pretty
common.i There was' a deluge of
ways to combat that malady. The'
most common was rock candy
with tea. I heard tell' that a lot of
folks went with horehound candy
and whiskey on this one but not at
our house..-Mother wasn't big on
liquor even .for medicinal purpos-
es. She stuck with black gum and
sugar. It'd stop that croup.

The Way We See It

THE JOINT THANKSGIVING WORSHIP service turned into *7 ", /
a sessibh, uttering prayer for our economic situation here in Port -
St. Joe. As one person said, "It's the most effective thing the corn- ,,,
munitv could have done for our particular circumstances."
This is the second community prayer meeting which has been
held specifically for our situation. The other prayer session
addressed the problem in which we found ourselves, very well. It
wasn't long before we were all working once again. Maybe this sec- '
obd efi tqll havp the.e sqtme results,, ...
e If it doesn't, at"ea \te will know what the pars for ie mll. .
are. We won't be kept in a state of uncertainty such as we are now. .. i '
Folks who work at the mill will know for certain they have to go
about getting another job. They will know whether or not they
have to put roots down somewhere else. They'll quit depending on ,
something as uncertain as they have been depending on the past ; '

THINK, IF YOU WILL, WHAT WOULD be your druthers if -
you had just purchased a S300 million paper mill, only to have it P. :'" ,
in operation for less than two years? Suppose it was your mill. "\
which had been dowri 10 months of those two years. What would lo
wyou think? ti e fo \ner f e .'" r t i
We would think that we had to bend every effort to get it run- :. .-
ning once again so-we could pay for the thing. We know. with the
merger of Stone with another firm and that firm's announcement .
that they, intend to cut back on production, thinrigs don't look.too
good for us. But, the Stone company only owns half of the mill.
The other half owner could be just as adamant to keep it running.
As we see it, that's our best hope. We're not experts in the
business world, as some other columnists are, but we don't see
the local nflll'.,shutting'dow-i for good. for that reason. Only time
will tell for sure. but we're counting on the numbers of prayers
which have been sent up and that-owners' desire to have the mill
operating. ,..

COMEDIAN FLIP WILSON
died over the holidays, too. What
a loss!


Flip was a. success without
being vulgar. He didn't resort 'to
foul and ; dirty language 'like
Andrew Dice Clay, Eddie Murphy
or Richard Pryor. They all think
it takes dirty talk to get a laugh.
But Flip kept his monologue
clean.' The kids could listen to
him and laugh with him, without
having their sensibilities dam-
aged.
Flip Wilson never aired a.
filthy show. His "The devil made
me do it" and "What you see is
what you get" became. cliches
-used by all. I even remember 'a
preacher or two giving a sermon
.on his catch phrase, "The devil
made me do it."
The only sermons which
might have come from Murphy or,
Pryor offerings would have been
sermons of disapproval or cen-
sure.
Andrew Clay has all but dis-
appeared from the entertainment
scene. Eddie Murphy went into
an eclipse for a long while.


Richard Pryor is a far 'cry from,
his former self but Flip Wilson
never turned off this audience.

IT WAS 'A GbOD holiday,/
everything considered. Things,
weren't as we would have liked
them to be around Gulf County,
but the weather was nice, almost,
everyone was healthy ,and every-
one had plenty to eat. There was
a good share of positive things
happening to go along with the
negative. The future was uncer-
tain and the econopnic news was
bad, but'hardly anyone was com-,
plaining, in spite of the spectre of,
possibly being forced to, make
some more changes.
Our cloud definitely didn't
have. a silver lining,, but neither,
was it. hopeless. ,
In'other words, all. the news
except the news about the paper
mill was upbeat.
I found out that staying home
for Thanksgiving isn't conducive
for a column the week after.

Peters, Jr. with 840 letters urging them to reconsider their stance on the ambulance issue.


each county district to study the,
matter and report back to the
board with recommendations.
Commissioner Warren Yeager
acknowledged to those present
that mistakes had been made on
both sides of the issue and he was
more than %willing to discuss the
matter, but, ". 1.. whatever we do:
we need to do it In the framework
of Gulf County ... not what's best
for north Gulf County or south
Gulf County;, but what's :best for
Gulf County, and come up with a,
compromise solution."
Commissioner Billy .Traylor
also.-called for the board to recon-
sider the matter and to give the
citizens an answer "tonight"-yes
or no.


Board chairman Tommy Knox
said he would like to see the
Wewa volunteers run the service.
Commissioner Yeager later
added that he wanted the people,
of Wewa to run the service, but'
emphasized a need to stay under
the Gulf County umbrella.
He also reminded the board of
the problems and cost' (S160,000
per year) they once paid for ser-
vice in south Gulf County. but
since the board took It over those
costs. after collections, were
within S40.000 of breaking even
this year.,, ,-'. ". '. .. :. .- '. :
Gulf County Ambulance .
Director Shane McGuffin-,
acknowledged, that the Wewa vol-
unteers could run the ALS ser-


vice. ,
"The volunteers don't' need
me. They've run the system for 27
years and have done an excellent
job," McGuffin stated.
,, He also offered ,to help any
wly that he could'to help the vol-
unteers set up the ALS service If
thit was the direction the board
wanted to go. -
After meetings between the,
volunteers and county represen-
tatives are held, ,the final details
of a compromise plan should be
presented to the board in the near
future.

Santa Claus, Rudolph, and Frosty the Snowman Return


Mr. Wesley.Ramsey Editor:
As a- reader of. The Star..,l'd
like to see if you would use. the
enclosed poem in your "Letters to
the Editor" during the upcoming
holiday season. I added a short
view of my thoughts on the
current emphasis or misplaced
emphasis of the Christmas holi-
day.
Santa Claus. Rudolph the
Red Nosed Reindeer, and Frosty
the Snowman have returned to
our lives with advertising that
becomes more elaborate every
year. The streets are crowded with
shoppers, Santa Claus is busily
interviewing children, stores are
crowded with shoppers and every-
one is singing "Let it snow, let it
snow, let it snow."


It's small wonder that peo;-
pie's thoughts turn to the com-
mercial bonanza of the year. The
cash registers are ringing, mer-
chants are smiling and credit
card balances are ballooning. The
mirth and splendor of the com-
mercial efforts are effectively
manipulated through the Inge-
nious marketing plans of the
MBA's. The Annual Statement is
once again saved by the magic of
Christmas.
What a joyous time everyone
is having. The colors of the season
are dazzling, the trees are
trimmed with holly, the stuffed
turkey looks magnificent on the
platter and the merriment Of the
family opening their gifts is being
photographed for posterity. All the

savor .November 24th county commis-

shrugging off insult, innuendo,
and occasional slander. Ques-

of our Lord's teachings, with none
of his detractors' petulance.

was giving ground., Both sides
knew whit was best.
A hero emerged from the
November 24th county commis-
sion meeting. He built a bridge
from an olive branch, and-
spanned a chasm that neither
side could leap. He gave the
Wewahitchka Volunteer Arfibu-
lance Corp and the Gulf County
Board of County Commissioners a
common ground. The success of
this joint venture is solely their
responsibility.

return back to county-wide elec-
tions for county commissioners
rather than single member dis-
trict representation.
Commissioner Traylor re-
minded the board that six years
ago county voters registered their
desires by a 78% margin to return
back to county-wide voting.
The board has instructed
Board Attorney Tim McFarland to
investigate the odds of winning
the change in court and what it
would cost to try.
McFarland told the board he
estimated the cost at somewhere
between $50,000 and $100,000,
and that court records indicate
that the success rate of overturn-
ing cases similar to Gulf County's
has not been good.
Commissioner John Stanley
suggested the board might also'
look at the 'Voting Rights Act of,
1965 as another option to attack
the issue.
Chairman Kno* suggested
the board hold a workshop on the
question after the first of the year.
In Other Business
*The board decided to change
Its meeting time to 7:00 ET,
beginning with the board's first
meeting in January. The board
currently meets at 6:00 ET.
*The board supported helping
Gulf County Senior Citizens


Association Director Jerry St koe
establish a special needs shelter
at the Wewahitchka Community
Center. The Wewahitchka City
Commission has already offered
the building on a 10 year lease to
the senior citizens for that pur-
pose..
*The board approved two res-
olutions from the Gulf County
Historical Society-one for the
preservation of the Cape San Bias
lighthouse, and the other for the
relocation and preservation of the
lighthouse keeper's quarters cur-
rently in danger of being
destroyed because of beach ero-
sion.
*The board decided to write
the state seeking an extension of
unemployment compensation for
laid off mill workers.
Commissioner Nathan Peters, Jr.
pointed out that Gulf County cur-
rently has the highest unemploy-
ment rate in the state at over
18%. .
*Commissioner Billy Traylor
volunteered to head up efforts to
Intervene in the Corps of
Engineers' dredging practices
along the Apalachicola. River.
Marilyn Blackwell and Wayne
Childers pointed out that the
Corps' current practice was dam-
aging the waterway. Commis-
sioners agreed and have tried to

Kent Says Gulf Has Teen Pregnancy Problem ;
Health Department Inaugurates Programs to Combat This and Other Matters '


Gulf County has a definite
problem with its teenagers, Doug
Kent told the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday. The Health Department
Director revealed that Gulf has
the fifth highest teen pregnancy
rate of any county in the state of
Florida and used this statistic to
Justify a new program the health
department is sponsoring in
schools. He said the Department
is sponsoring and, to great extent,
financing a health program in
every school in Gulf County,
aimed at the students.
Utilizing a source of funding
from grants, health department
funds, and state money, .the
department is guiding the school
in operating a program of physical
and mental examinations and
treatments of all students. The
physical treatment includes, but
is not limited to, eye exams and
dental work.
, Another problem the depart-
ment is dealing with is AIDS in
our school system. Kent said,
"Don't kid yourself; AIDS is pre-
sent in our school system and is
related to the teen pregnancy


Adopt An Animal
Many different possible pets
are up for adoption right now at
.the Gulf County Pound. Among
those being held there .are .17-
dogs. including one adult female
Kees hound (spayed and has up
to date shots); 14 puppies: 12
cats; and two kittens.
If you are interested inoany of
these animals, have any, ques-
Stions, or would like adoption-i
information, please call the Gulf..
County Sherill's Offlice at 227-.
S1115 and ask for Johnny Collins
or call the St. Joseph Bay
Humane Society at 227-1103.
Note: Even tif youalreadyhave
a pet, you can help end the stray
dog and cat problem. If you love
your pet, take it to the tet and
have him or her neutered or
spayed so that no more unwanted
animals will be born.


SJHS Will Meet
The St. Joseph Historical
Society will meet on December 5
at 3:00 p.m. at the Gulf County
Library. All members are urged to
attend.


rate. Your health department is
assisting the school in conducting

S -. % ,.r .-,


a family planning and birth con-
trol program, aimed at both prob-
lems."
The program as outlined by
Kent furnishes two registered
nurses on a rotating basis, six
nurse's aides, with one assigned
to each school, and dental and
mental health contract services.
This is a new program, just
getting underway this year, lut
Kent said that all of the activities
he mentioned in his talk are
actively being administered.


Kent also told the club that
the construction of a new health
department building will begin
some time during the new year.
"We currently have $800,000
from the state of Florida toward
this project. We're supposed to get
another $800,000 when the legis-
lature meets in the spring. This
will be6 enough to build the new
building and relocate the health
department. The department has
outgrown its headquarters at
Long and Fourth."

All glory to His name.
Our world will never be the same.
From above, God sent His Son,
There wuas a tremendous job to be
done.
Jesus wuas born of Mary. his mother.
The world would never need another.
.He came to teach us of His love.
He came with God's blessings from
above.
He set the right example to use as a
guide.


God looked down upcn Hirnm filled with
pride.
The sad part came in His life,
When the devil s work caused such
strife.
He died on the'cross,
For our world, a great loss.
Yet, He fills our hearts with love,
Our Jesus Christ fomr above.
IHe gave His life that ure might live.
What a wonderful gift He had to give.
He asks us to share His love with one
another and pray.
So He can bless us day by day.
So on this Christmas day ofjoy and
.peace.
Be filled uwith love and have hatred
cease,.
Follow the Christ child wuho lies in the
manger,
He doesn't want to be a stranger.
He enriches our souls,
While helping us reach our goals.
He's everywhere in our world today.
He's there to protect us in every way.
On Christmas morn,
Jesus Christ, the Son oJf God. was born.

of pension funds awarded and the
process required to receive them
early this week.
This is especially good news
to current employees of Florida
Coast Paper Company who have
been laid off since mid-August
and are beginning to reach the,
end of their unemployment com-
pensations.
Former employees will have
two basic options to choose from
as they return mail their notifica-
tion claim form-receive "direct
rollover" into their retirement
plan or IRA account, or payment
of funds direct to them. The latter
of which will incur a 20% fee to
the Internal Revenue Service for
income tax withholding payment
as required by law.
Reeves said a Iresponse.
should 'be in hand within five
working days from the time for-
mer employees' claims sheets are
received in Jacksonville.
Of the several current laid off
mill workers interviewed Tuesday,
all said they would opt to take the
cash payment rather than direct
rollover into their retirement
fund.


As one employee's wife said,
"Right now I'm worried about
making my next house payment a
whole lot more than retirement.'"


Merchants Support Mill

Workers and Families
The 465 laid off mill workers
in the area are reminded to take
the coupon-letter. received from
U.P.I.U. Local 379 president John
Reeves last week, to the Piggly,
Wiggly between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.
on Saturday, December 12.
A Christmas dinner, includ-
ing a whole turkey, ham, and, all
the trimmings complete with
dessert is being donated by Piggly
Wiggly. local merchants, vendors,
area church youth groups, and
several concerned individuals.
Should an employee not be
able to pick up the dinner items,
on that day, they should arrange
for a family member to redeem the
coupon for them. This is a one
day only coupon because of the
perishable nature of some of the
food.


Check Out Charities


Before You Donate


As the holiday season
approaches, Floridians can expect
an increase in the level of fund-
raising by charitable organiza-
tions, Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commission-
er Bob Crawford announced
recently.
And with so many organiza-
tions soliciting money, making a
decision about contributing can
often be confusing.
To assist consumers in mak-
ing their decisions. Crawford's..
office announced the availability
of the annual "Gift Givers' Guide"
-a popular consumer guide that
shows how much money organi-
zations spent the previous year on
program services, administrative
costs and fundraising expenses.
"This guide provides con-
sumers with information that
they can use to ask relevant
questions and to become
informed before contributing to
an organization," Crawford said.
"While consumers should also
take other factors into considera-
tion when deciding whether to
contribute, we believe that this
guide is an excellent starting
point."
The guide lists the approxi-
mately 5,500 organizations regis-
tered with the Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services as charities that solicit
money from the public in Florida.
whether they are located in the
state or not.
Also included is a list of orga-
nizations that are exempt from fil-
ing a detailed financial report,
and a section listing professional
solicitors and fund raising con-
sultants.
To receive a free copy of the
"Gift Givers' Guide," consumers
can call the department's con-
sumer help line-1-800 HELP
FLA (455-7352)-,and leave their
name and complete mailing
address. Consumers should allow
10 to 15 days for delivery.


Crawford also offered the fol-
lowing tips to consider when
deciding on whether to contribute
to an organization:
*Don't judge an organization
solely on the basis of an impres-
sive-sounding name. Find out
what it actually does.
*Be wary of emotional appeals
and organizations that have only
vague plans for spending funds
they collect.
IAsk for an organization's
financial report before contribut-
ing and its federal tax identifica-
tion number, which you'll need to
claim your contribution as a tax
deduction.
*Never give cash. Write a
check payable only to an organi-
zation not an individual.
*Be wary if an organization'
offers to send a "runner" to pick
up your contribution. Reputable
charities are just as happy to
receive your gift tomorrow as
today.

Safe Trees and
Homes-A Happy:,
Holiday Mix 1
by Bill Nelson
State Fire Marshal
Like oil and water, certain
hazards just don't mix with the
festive season of the coming holl-
days. This Hanukkah, Christmas,
and New Year's, we can all play a
vital role in eliminating those haz-'
ards from our homes.
For example, hundreds of -
Christmas tree fires occur each
year, according to the National
Fire Protection Association.
Common causes include trees
that easily tip over, catch fire from
nearby candles or other heat
sources, or become dangerously,
dry for lack of water.
In Florida, 23 fires involving
Christmas trees were reported to
the State Fire Marshal's Office in
1997. These fires caused more
than S300.000 in property dam-
age. Fortunately, there were no
deaths or injuries during that
year. However, from 1983-1997 ,"
Christmas tree fires caused 28p
injuries and 11 deaths among
Florida residents, and eight
injuries among fire service, pern-
sonnel. The total dollar loss for
this same period: S3.35 million.
Other fire hazards include.,
inadequate chimney cleaning a ac
the use of pine or lighter fluid in,
the fireplace, portable space:'
heaters placed too close to things,.
that burn, and flaws in the'
design, use, or installation of
heating equipment. ,
Fortunately, most of these'
fires are preventable when we,
take a few basic steps. Following
are some tips for a safer holiday
season:
*Inspect chimneys regularly
and make necessary repairs.
Always keep the damper openi
when using your fireplace. Cover
the entire fireplace opening with a
tight-fitting screen.
0 *Check unplugged light
strings for damaged bulbs, sock-
ets or wires. In particular, look for,
any cracks or breaks in the sock-,
ets, bulbs and filaments, and dis-
card any broken items or worn-,
out strings.
eMake sure you don't exceed
the UL-approved voltage or
wattage figure stamped on electri-';
cal equipment. for your indoor or.
outdoor holiday decorations.'


lunch will be provided for those

pecting birds.
In addition to the smaller
migrating birds, Cox said that.
many species of waterfowl will be
settling in the marshes and wet-
land areas of Northwest Florida.
He said that one of the best places
in the Panhandle to see the many
migrating species* of ducks and
geese is at St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge, southeast of
Tallahassee.
Cox said that almost everyone

PAIN











Outdoors in the.

I Panhandle
by Gene Childs
Florida Outdoor Writers' Association


IThe Thanksgiving holidays
brought many visitors, to our
Panhandle area and marked the
beginning of our annual arrival of
snowbirds. Recently while watch-
ing another spectacular sunset at
Canal Park in Mexico Beach, I met
a spritely couple from Ontario who
remarked on how much there was
to do here In the outdoors in win-
ter.
With neither gun nor rod and
reel in the couple's hands, I visual-
ized heart-pounding games of
shuffleboard, brow-furrowed gam-
bits on the checkerboard, or early
morning scouting for hashbrowns
instead of grits. Boy, was I wrong
They rattled off names of
migrating birds to spot as easily as
I knew names of gun calibers,
shotsize, and lure colors. The ori-
oles, the warblers, the yellow-bel-
lied sapsuckers (my pet name for'
the' Atlanta Falcons for years) all
visit our area in outstanding num-
bers they said..
The couple described canoeing
in the St. Marks Preserve and see-
ing thousands of ducks and geese
and on hiking around St. Vincent's
Island after shuttling over on Capt.
*i Joey's pontoon.
They also wanted to try the
horseback riding there with Broke-
a-Toe's, not to mention the sunset
sail they planned on the Governor
Stone in Apalachicola Bay. To see
our area through different eyes
was definitely illuminating and a
bit humbling. The great outdoors is
jiist that-great.
Blame It on 'El Nifo if you
want, but you should enjoy the
mixed bag of saltwater fish being
caught right now. Trout fishing the
deep holes around and behind'
Black's Island is consistently filling
coolers. Any color of green grub
gets strikes, but small pinfish or
large minnows cast Into sandy
patches and freelined with no
weight or corks are getting the real
gator trout ... ,,
A second run of pompano is:;


also occurring right now. The best
baits, sand fleas, are hard to find
this time of year, but fresh shrimp
are doing just fine. Fished on bot-
tom-rigs in between shore and the
nearest sand bar will get you bit.
Early, early morning down
around Davis Beach at the
entrance to Tyndall is the hot spot.
If the pompano aren't cooperating,
the whiting should be. Near shore
bottom: fishing consists of man-
grove snapper, sand trout, floun-
der and the, ever-present-out-of-
season red snapper.: Cut 'ait on
the bottom works well for all.
Offshore fishing for grouper is
still excellent-when weather allows;
These grouper are holding ,'tight 'to
structure and' seem to be eating
best oh tide changes. When the,
bite begins, it's fast and: furious.-
Live baits help' get past the sriap-'
per.
Some good kings up to 25 lbs.
were also boated around Buoy #30
during Thanksgiving, and a few are
still being caught on the inshore
buoy line and over nearshore reefs.
Area hunters had a field :day
during ,the four-day Thanksgiving
hunt. Nice deer;being taken were.
reported all over the area. Jamie
Haddock, daughter of The; Star
employee Donna Haddock, took -a
beautiful eight point buck near,
Tyndall early Friday morning.
Some fall: turkeys;-also:' came
home for holiday dinner. Howard's
Creek and Lake Wimico had duck
hunters calling' in wood ducks. '
teal,: ringnecks, and some" mal-
lards. Area lakes and rivers' report'
excellent speckled perch fishing,
and some lunker size largemouths
are being caught in tidal creeks
and rivers along with, trout and.'
redfish on live shrimp.
Opportunities abound in the
outdoors in the Panhandle. From
birdwatching to surf fishing, hob-
bles are there for all who want
theimn.' 'just wonder: can you troll
on horseback? :,'; '

have made when we had the
chance. That Is something that we
will have to correct."

e in to smoke


1000 of them will die


b:acco-related disease.


by 'Danielle Krasniqi
5th grade
Did you know each day 3,000
kids start smoking, and 1,000 of
them die from tabaco-related dis-
ease. Here is a story about a boy
who figures this out.
There once was a boy about
13 years old. He was very popu-
lor. All his friends smoke includ-
ing him. He didn't know about all
S the diseases and things that,can
happen. Well he started coughing
albt,'aind had trouble breathing.
He wasn't quite addicted to them
yet. Later on in the school year
they had been learning about
smoking and how It's hazardous
to your health. They had to
wright, & draw for a Tabaco Free,
Kids. He learned that problem
more than 3,000 kids start smok-
ing each day and 1,000 of them
die from tabaco-related disease.
He wanted to stop but 1he' got
hooked just like more than 3,000
kids. After awhile he got lung can-
cer. He was very lucky that he
didn't die most of tlie people die.
H le learned that he was one of the
3,000 kids started smoking each
day. He promlesed never to smoke
again.
Don't do tobacco,
It is bad,
Please take this tip from your dad,
If you do you'll be rad,
if you don't you'll be sad!

HEY YOU DRUGS WILL YOU

KIDS START SMOKING A YEAR.

Please don't smoke
You'll look like a joke.
Smokings bad for your health
And everything else
Why do that stuff?
It makes you look rough.
Now I think I've said enough.
by Jessica lMock-5th grade

Lots of kids began
to smoke each day.
Then every body began to pray.
Some peoples lungs turn black.
Each day they try to turn back.
So next time don't smoke
or you'll be a dope.
Then probably you'll
have some hope.

3 Thousand Kids
get Hooked on
Cigarettes Every Day!
by Charles Matthew gable
5th grade
Every day three thousand
kids start smoking every day but.
only, one thousand of them will
live. To me I think that is a
shame. In my mind I can picture
kids starting to smoke every day
but, what I can't see one thou-
sand out of three thousand dllng.
Most of it is happening in
America.
Cigarettes killed my Paw-Paw.
It gave him cancer and he
struggled to survive but the cancer
was just to strong for him. My
dad had togive 'him showers arid
had to take "him to the bathroom.
What I feel bad about is the
one thousand kids who die from
starting and getting hooked on cig-
arettes. It's just not right to me. I
, bet its not to any body else either.


9 Thought...
Cigarettes are a pack of lies. They don't
make you cool, popular, or beautiful.
Jessica gones-5th grade


If anyone tells you smoking is cool
He or she is full of bull
Smoking is bad for your lungs
It's just as dangerous as guns
Smoking makes you smell bad
It makes your teeth turn green
If I were you
I'd get away from nicotine
So If someone asks you
to have a smoke
ask them if their telling a joke
by Scott 'Hightower-6th grade

We should stop the use of
Tobacco. Because 1,000 die each
day. 3,000 kids begin to smoke
each day. In two days there will be
6,000 kids to start that has not
ever smoked before and so on.,
They know it is bad for them but
some times they get brived into It.'
Some kids just want to. Then on,
the other hand there is some kids
just think it is cool. YEAH RIGHT!
That is why we should stop the
use of tobacco. '.' ..

their time and finances, as well of
share their material resources, in
order to help restore normal living
conditions. Project: Mold-A-Male
is just one of many different
groups who have given support.
S MAM conducted a week long
drive at Zion Fair Baptist Church
for the purpose of soliciting aid for
the victims. The citizens of North
Port St. Joe responded to the call
nith great enthusiasm. Nearly two
tons of food, clothing, over the
counter medications, infant
needs, sanitation supplies, and
-other basic items needed for daily
survival were collected, sorted,
packed, and delivered to the point
of shipping within 10 days.
This activity was undertaken
in, order to reinforce civic aware-
ness,' which is one of the main
goals of the group. A basic tenet of
the group holds that in order for a
boy to become a contributing
adult, he must begin to practice
deeds of good citizenship at an
early age. This was an ideal situa-
tion, allowing the young men to
,get some practical experience in
helping others.
All contributions were appre-

season. There are girls' and boys'
basketball games throughout the
month of December. This includes
teams from junior high through
junior varsity and varsity!
Cheerleaders will be involved with
their competition out of town, too.
Our school-wide science fair
dominates the curricular scene
from the first of the month until
Friday morning the 4th when top
honors are shared at an assem-
bly. What a delight to see stu-
dents involved with projects that
take them to new levels of under-,
standing!
The newly established WHS
drama troupes will be out and
about the community sharing the
Christmas message with their.
play "Sing Us a True Song". They
will also make two presentations
before our student body on.
December 15th. The play is-
scheduled at the elementary
school at a later date.

The advisory board of the
junior high is sponsoring a
"Christmas Ball" on Friday
evening, December 11th. This is a
student initiated and organized
affair, helping to develop Indepen-
dence. responsibility, and school
spirit within the Junior high. The
advisory board has proposed
many exciting ideas for their
classmates. We look forward to
their implementation.
In the meantime, preparation
for upcoming state-mandated
tests' is ongoing. and classroom
instruction is in high gear as, we
approach the end of the semester
and final exams,
Whewl ;-
Amidst all this, we must,
remind ourselves (and may. I
remind our parents as well) that
we need to slow down and enjoy'
our children. The journey with
them under our care and tutelage
is so short. They do not fit well
into our "To Do" lists and our
busy schedules.
We must force ourselves to
stick to priorities and remember
what is. most .important. In the
context of these statements, enjoy'
th0. ys; ceatekspeclal mem-
*'pgAcipat4irb our stu-
dents' lives for theif benefit-and
yours.
To one and all, have a joyous
and meaningful Christmas and a
blessed New Year.

F.C.A.T.
The Florida Comprehensive

our fourth and fifth grade stu-
dents on February 2 and 3. The
F.C.A.T. is part of Florida's overall

ment by implementing higher
standards for public school stu-
dents. .
The test is linked to the
Sunshine Ste State Standards, to the
results show how students are
performing in relation to the cur-
riculum priorities adopted by the
State Board of Education.
The F.C.A.T is unlike other
tests in that it contains 20 9 per-
formance items. These are not
multiple choice items; instead,
they require .the student to
answer the-questions by writing
an explanation. This makes the
test more challenging.

Truth


What exactly
is choice? Sure,
we .have many
choices--what
to eat for break-
fast, what
music to listen
to, and whether
to smoke a ciga-
rette. ,
Wait, have you ever thought
that maybe you are not in con-;
trol of smoking cigarettes? I
mean, if you smoke, you willing-
ly go to a store and purchase,
tobacco. No one forces you to;
only you' are involved in that'
decision. But. It is the, reason
behind why you go and pick ,up
those cigarettes that has made'
you subconsciously lose will'
power.
I'm not implying that tobacco
makes you a nicotine craving'
robot; I'm .simply stating that
most people who smoke want to'
quit. What's stopping them is'
addiction. This is not the type of'
addiction that is most associat-
ed with heroin or other lethal
drugs. This is more of an inter-
nal want that is satisfied with a
cigarette.
All of this is odd, because
why in the world would the gov-
ernment want to allow a product
that will eventually kill you to be
sold in America? The reason is
too many people -have become
.addicted, and it is thought to be
socially acceptable to a certain
point.
If we want to be saving lives,
the number one way to do this is
to outlaw tobacco. This, I'm
afraid, will never happen. But as
citizens of this country ve
should realize that we have so
many rights, it's hard to take.,
responsibility for all of them. ,; .,,'
Why- can't tobacco be just as$
illegal as marijuana? Simple, it's
hard for the government to'
make, money from marijuana, sod
why not enjoy tobacco lobbyists,i
After all, it may not be good. but
it's our right, and, it's legal. My
only question is, why don't we"
do something about it? T

MEDITATIONS OF A J


Byl LOWELL F. ADAMS.
Rejoice With
/ Joy
Unspeakable
I Peter 1:8


EN YOU AND I WORSHIP, does it. bring Joy
Ps peakable to our hearts? I suppose if we could get a
glimpse of just what it is that we were saved from, when
Jesus shed His blood to obtain our redemption, we might
"be a bit more joyful overit.
Many of God's servants are saying America needs a
revival. We need a renewal of the Joy of the Lord, and a
.passion for the lost souls of those who stand so
desperately in need of the joy of being a child of God.
Rev. Walter M. Fox, of Lafayette, Louisiana, writing
in the booklet, Open Windows, a-few years back, tells
about something that happened in his early ministry.
He was in college at the time. At Christmas time he
was asked to preach in his grandmother's church. The
pastor a rather old Methodist Preacher, had told him
about his earlier days, when he had seen the Spirit move
in marvelous ways. He said he prayed he would see such
again before he died.
Bro, Fox said as he was a few minutes into his
- sermon, a lady right near the front, began to weep. He
Said he felt a little irritated by the interruption. But as
he continued to preachy, another person broke, out in
tears, then another and another. Then the first lady fell
to her knees and began praying out loud, right in the,
middle of his sermon. Then in a, moment, the entire
congregation was on their knees, praying and calling on
SGod. Completely -dumfounded, the young preacher steed
'and watched the old pastor race up and down the aisle,
praising God and shouting, "Glory, glory halletujah!"
The outcome of this Spiritual 'oupouringwas many
souls saved,, backsliders 'renewed their faith, broken
families reunited and broken friendships'restored.
'The world generally sees Spjiritual movinigs such as
this as "funny", but to those experiencing the Spiritual
uplift, and especially to Jesusit is Joy unspeakable.,
Hopefully, and prayerfully, those who see: huior in
such, will awaken to the tragedy of their view, before it.
"is too late, and lay hold on their only hope for a part in
God's glorious future for those who believe in Him.

Report

By: Rep. Ailen Boyd



Empowering Teens to

Lead the War on Drugs


,As the father, of a: young
teenager, one of my greatest con-
cerns when I examine America
today is the growing problem of
substance abuse among our
young people. Teenagers today
live in a society where, even in
their classrooms and neighbor-
hoods, they are faced with peer
pressure to use drugs and alcohol
at an increasingly younger age.
Our nation's young people
have so much talent and opportu-
nity, "but sometimes in this con-
fusing world, it is difficult for
them to make the right decisions.
In an effort to bring attention
to this issue, and to help find.
some solutions, I began my work
with Coalitions United for a Drug
Free North Florida, a project
which I have sponsored to unite
existing drug prevention efforts.
across North Florida.
This summer. Coalitions
United met with local law enforce-
ment officers, educators, clergy,
prevention professionals, coun-
selors and local government offi-
cials to discuss the teen drug
abuse problem. Following up on
these discussions with communi-
ty leaders;, w& organized a series
of forums geared toward high
school students ...
Joined by the Florida
Prevention Association (FPA), I
hosted a series of five teen drug,
abuse forums during Red Ribbon
Week. The goal of each event was
to empower students to identify
the reasons behind teen sub-
stance abuse and to work to solve
the problem.
The response was promising.
All of the groups we .addressed
recognized drug and alcohol
abuse as a substantial problem in
their schools, and could identify
the negative side.effects associat-
ed with abuse. More importantly
participants identified, time and
time agajn _M .tae aanme.pain.cause.
df teen drug .ab.usI.en there, cqm,;
miinlfies-boredom.
Young people across North
Florida say they "have nothing
better to do," and it is this lack of
wholesome activities that fre-
quently steers them to drugs and
alcohol. It is boredom that leads
young people to hang out at the
local Wal-Mart parking lot, or con-
gregate at the downtown mall,


and it is boredom that ultimately
leads some of them to drink, or.
smoke pot.
Certainly, community and
school-sponsored events are criti-
cal to any effort to provide
teenagers with more positive
activities to pursue. However, I
believe the teen substance abuse,
problem cannot be solved without
the leadership and active Lnvolve-
ment of young people.
With a little encouragement
and guidance, local students can
set up their own athletic leagues,.
mentoring programs and after-
school activities. Indeed, these
ideas were all offered by teens
participating in these drug abuse
forums.
As part of these forums, FPA
Executive Director: Majken
Peterzen and I talked to students
about how to become active' in
drug prevention initiatives within
their' own communities. We
encouraged them to reach out to
community leaders and local gov-
ernment officials who can assist
them in making their ideas a real-,
ity. -
Every local leader attending
these forums 'affirmed their .will -
ingness to collaborate with young
people in drug prevention efforts.
Students often forget that.
they can turn to community lead-"'
ers for assistance. We must con-
stantly remind these young people ,
that this is their community, and
they are just as important to the
community's success as the
adults. I was pleased with the.
enthusiasm that these students
expressed when they realized they
could be part of the answer to the'
teen substance abuse problem. ''`,
As a result of these drug
abuse forums, a group of teens in
Tallahassee have already begun to
hold meetings to discuss how to
.Implement drug prevention Ideas
of their o. .n ,_ ., .' .
-, -Coalitiohs United 'wilLkcoiqhn-
ue to support these young people
and work to empower more teens
across the Second Congressional
District. I hope that you, as par-
ents, neighbors, and friends, will
also encourage teenagers to have
the determination and initiative to
seek out and put into place solu-
tions to the substance abuse cri-
sis.

Rudloe Donates Works to U of F Smathers Libraries


Jack Rudloe, author, biolo-
gist, and conservationist, has
donated his literary papers to the:
George A. Smathers Libraries of
the University of Florida. Mr.
Rudloe is the author of numerous
books and articles; some written
jointly with his wife, Anne B ,
Rudloe, on the Florida environ-
ment, marine ecology worldwide,
the fishing and shrimping Indus- ":;
tries of the Gulf Coast, and espe-
cially on sea turtles.
The papers include notes and
drafts of published and unpub-'
lished writings, his literary corre-
spondence, research files, and
documentation of his activities as
an environmental activist in his
Gulf Coast home town of Panacea,
and surrounding Wakulla
County.
Although archival arrange-
ment and description of the
Rudloe papers is not yet under-
way, Frank Orser, Smathers man:-
uscripts librarian, says that the'
preliminary inventory indicates
that they represent the versatility
and variety of Jack's life as an .,
adventurer, writer, biological col-
lector, conservationist, and envi-
ronmentalist activist.
The documents represent 25
to 30 years of Rudloe's activities
and fill about 60 feet of shelving,
Orser added. Although the sub-
jects of the papers are scientific.
Rudloe and'his Works are also of s
interest to students of literature. r:
"Jack Rudloe is one of the
most significant Florida nature ,
writers, whether he is, dealing
with docks in the Gulf of Mexico. ,
or the search for alligators or the
difficulty of finding marine speci-
mens for research labs around
the world," says University of \
Florida English Professor Kevin"~
McCarthy.
"He is articulate, witty;
knowledgeable, and entertaining 1
McCarthy adds. Poet JamesL
Dickey and novelist and nature-. -
Writer Peter Matthiessen have <.
both praised Rudloe's writings. '
which are all non-technical.
SMcCarthy. a leading scholar1
of contemporary 'Florida litera-"


ture, has written that Rudloe's
style "emphasizes reader involve-
ment," and is known to have klept
many readers awake all night.'
Hurricane EarL added an ele-
ment of interest to the libraries'
acquisition, of Rudloe's Papers.
When Rudloe and the university
made an agreement on the gift. in
August. 1998. the author sug-
gested that in view of the oncom-'
ing hurricane season the material
be moyed as soon as possible
from his Gulf Specimen Marine
Laboratory. .
Two weeks to the day after the
papers were transported 1to the
safety of the Smathers Libraries,
the harbor at Panacea was swept
by eleven-foot tides.
The Smathers Libraries' goals
include collecting and perma-
nently preserving papers of both
Florida environmentalist and
writers, so that they can be used
by students and researchers. now,
and in the future. Rudloe's papers
complement several such collec-'
tions already in; the Smathers
Libraries.
As scientific, environmental,
and literary papers, they supple-
ment those of the world's most
famous sea turtle expert, Archie
Carr,, also a world renowned
nature writer, with whom Rudloe
worked in collecting data and tag-
ging turtles.
Other related natural history
and environmental papers in the
Smathers Libraries include those
of Tom Harrisson. like Carr, a pio-
neer observer and tracker of tur-
