Bed Tax Goes Into
Effect on January 1
Beginning January 1st. Gulf
County will officially join most of
the other counties along the coast
of Florida by enacting a county-
wide Tourist Development Tax
(TDT) also known as "Bed Tax".
County voters passed the TDT
by referendum on November's
general election ballot.
The 2% tax will be charged on
rental property, hotels, motels,
and cottage rentals to visitors to
the area. Reserves from the tax
are intended to help defer the cost
of maintaining services used by
visitors, tourist promotion, and
other related needs-rather than
ad valorem taxpayers having to
foot the bill for those needs.
Representatives- -from the
Florida Department of Revenue
were at the Gulf County
Courthouse Tuesday morning to
discuss administering the tax.
Real estate managers and rental
property owners, as well as hotel
and motel owners, will be respon-
sible for collecting, reporting, and
paying the TDT.

At times during 1998, we here

events and biggest stories of 1998

No doubt about it-hands
down-the biggest story of 1998
was, is, and will probably contin-
ue to be, the shutdown of Florida
Coast Paper Company in August
and questions surrounding its
Approximately 550 workers
have been directly Impacted by
the plant's shutdown and layoffs.
But, the spin-off effect reaches far
beyond the walls of the paper mill,
and even into surrounding coun-
ties. as wood haulers, merchants,
businesses, and other related
Industries have felt the crunch.
The ; merger of Stone
Container' and Jefferson-Smurfit

Container Corporation, along with
the partnership agreement that
forms Florida Coast Paper

Neighbors Reach Out In Love
On the flip side of that coin
has been the testimony of why
Gulf County and its neighbors are
so special. Local merchants and
businesses paid honor to laid off
workers by furnishing them-; a
complete Christmas dinner. Other
groups and Individuals have given
Christmas toys and made contri-
butions to the local relief funds.
One especially touching story
that best shows the heart of the
Panhandle came from an elderly
Franklin County gentleman ,who
dropped by The Star's office a few
weeks ago and left a cash contri-
bution to help laid off workers. As
he handed over the envelope con-
taining money, he stated, "Years
ago; the union helped my family
in a time of need and I hope this
can return that favor in some

CHRISTMAS WEEK BROUGHT MORE hints of bad news for
the people of Port St. Joe, but we went ahead and observed the
holiday in the style which it was meant to be, anyhow People
stirred around a day or two before Christmas, just as they always
have. Folks decorated their homes with colorful lights, just as they
always have. Families came--en masse-to visit, just as they
We just went ahead and had ourselves a very merry Christmas
in Port St. Joe, in spite of all the economic bad news which has hit
us over the past few months.
Now, that it's all over, we'll deal with prospective hard times
We'll deal with the necessity of possibly having to change our
lifestyle. We'll deal with depending on the paper mill for our bread
and butter. We'll deal with the possibility of losing our coal trans-
IT ALL STARTED WITH THE LOSS of our huge sawmill sev-
eral years ago. Folks thought that would be a blow from which we
wouldn't recover. Then, the pipeline was closed down and .along
with it, several good jobs. Next, St. Joe Paper Company sold out
bringing the hint of catastrophe to come. Next, the net ban was
introduced with its accompanying seafood slowdown. Then, the
box plant closed down ....
Something always came along to take the curtailed firm's
place and we were better for it. Nothing has come along to take the
box plant's place, yet, but we're expecting it any day, now. It
seems as if we have had, all our jobs shutting down, lately, with
nothing starting up to take their place.
STILL, THE SHUTDOWNS DON'T demolish the town.
Granted, we have over 18% unemployment, but one would expect
about 50% unemployment with these firms shut down.
We can look forward to a new year of recovery.
In the past, we have had tough times when the rest of the
nation was experiencing a boom, and boom times when the
remainder of the nation was struggling. From all appearances the
remainder of the nation is on the edge of a struggling period,
despite the current boom, so we can expect good times ahead.
But, don't give up your second job just yet.
Taught Us the True Spirit
THIS PAST CHRISTMAS TAUGHT US more about the true
spirit than many of us have learned in a lifetime. It taught us
sharing,' depending on neighbors, making do with what we, have,
and not expecting too much which we don't need. Nobody in Port
St. Joe went lacking this Christmas, due largely, to the generosi-
ty of people who had enough to share and people who viewed oth-
ers as being in worse condition than they.
It was a Christmas of sharing
There were numerous "benefits" held for the purpose of help-
ing others, whether or not they were less fortunate.
WE HAVE NEVER SEEN SO MANY diverse activities carried '
on for the benefit of others. The poor didn't get the bulk of atten-
tion this year. The jobless did!
Our jobless drew the attention of people for a 100 mile radius.
It made a target for everyone to aim at with their desire to help
those who.needed help. Even the Panama City News Herald had
its attention drawn to the many people, organizations and busi-.
nesses of that city who made it their task to alleviate the condition
of the needy here in Port St. Joe.
Many organizations here In Port St. Joe felt that helping their
own neighbors should be their main objective as they poured out
their plentiful blessings on their neighbors.
We're glad we lived in Port St. Joe this past Christmas to. see
the true spirit of the season at work so unselfishly among our peo-
ple. We knew all along that they had It In them. It just needed a
reason to come out. It makes it sort of hard to give "help" when
there are so-few needing help thatypu must search for them. Too,
people don't feel like offering help to people who sit back and don't
try to help themselves.
PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP AT Christmas time, need assis-
tance at other times,,too. We trust the good people of Port St. Joe
will continue to give succor to their neighbors in the trying days'to
come, just as they have in the past. We're projecting a good year
for our people In 1999, but it won't be here tomorrow or the next
day, and we like to eat every day. It keeps us from getting hungry,

A new year traditionally
brings new hope for all people. In
our Panhandle area, that emo-
tion- hope -has been vastly
overworked while too many peo-
ple have been out of work. Never
far beneath the surface chatter
about deer or "dogs, dove or
ducks, is a hope for something
more important than just game in
the coming new year.
The weather has been the
major factor affecting hunting
,| and fishing this week. On windy
days local anglers found refuge
on creeks and rivers.
The crappie continue to bite
well on minnows, and shellcrack-
ers along the creeks have drawn a
number of out-of-state anglers
during the holidays. The bass are
on and off. On when the water
rises and off when it goes down.
Pumpkin-colored worms seemed
to be a hit along Howard's Creek.
Deer hunting just keeps get-
ting .better. The cooler weather
has more deer moving during the
day and several nice bucks have
been. taken. A 10-pointer .was
shown off Saturday -in Mexico-
Beach in the parking lot of Gulf
Foods, and reports of several
eight-pointers and a few spikes,
have drifted in. The two doe days

Scottish farm boy learned to read
and write while plowing his
father's fields. This farm boy,
Robert Burns, eventually became

MEDITATIbNS OF A
By LOWEL F ADAMS
Several Ways to Go '
Is there maybe,
more than one
way to Heaven?
LIVE IN ICALLAWAY. There are two ways I can
go home from downtown -'anama City-Highway 98 'or
Business 98. Actually there are many ways.
In talking with people about becoming a Christian.
I have many timos. been informed that there are many
ways to heaven. iUsually they state the above example.
You can think ol" any destination and there are many
ways one may g6 to get there.
That is true of places in this world, but when we are
dealing with the Wvay to heaven, we need to examine the
"Road Map" that God has given us. It gives explicit
directions, so that no one ever need be misled. The one
who made the world also prepared the way to get there.
Jesus, who has traveled that "road", and surely
knows, says in Mlatthew 7:14, the way is narrow, and
"few" of us will be able to find it. He also cautions us in
verse 13-the way to destruction is wide, and "many"
are traveling that road.
We have to have complete faith in our "road map"
or we will surely, get on the wrong road. Jesus tells us
in John 14:6, "1,am the Way, the Truth and the Life: no
one comes unto #he Father, except by me." That seems
The Word of God tells us that in order to live on
after this life. we must be born of the Spirit of God. And
it tells us in I Jdhn 5:1 just how to do that. It tells us.
"Whosoever believes that Jesus is the Christ, is born of
God. ." Faith i our key.
The Bible, oir "road map" also tells us some of the
consequences of1traveling the wrong road. This world is
going to be destroyed, and those who are not on the
right road will be in great trouble. The Bible tells us
some signs to be looking for before the end. Some of
those signs are all around us. Have you checked your
"road map" lately?

Cindy states, "The goal of this
ministry is to instill hope in the
life of defeated Christians. We
want to minister to the hurting,
the broken hearted. My prayer is
that you leave a Cindy Sites con-
cert feeling encouraged, uplifted,

Trent plays the bass guitar, and
Jesse plays the drums. Jesse has
also recorded a tape entitled. "I

songs from his cassette as well.

hear her tapes and understand
