Arizona Chemical

Takes Twelve Day

Maintenance Shutdown
Arizona Chemical started a
12-day maintenance shutdown
Friday, January 15th, taking
advantage of a slowdown in prod-
uct demand to accomplish sched-
uled routine maintenance proce-
dures.
According to Plant Manager
Dave Garrett, the plant moved the
shutdown, planned for March,
forward to this date In order to
take advantage,of a slow down in
the rosin ester and fatty acid
product lines.
Rosin ester is used to produce
adhesives such as those used for
S' hot melt glue and pressure sensi-
tive glues. Fatty acids have sever-
al applications, including usage
in degreasers and epoxy rosins.
Garrett said the plant should
reopen around January 27th,
barring any unforeseen problems.
He also explained that
January is a traditional low point
in the availability of raw materi-
als-such as crude tall oil, a
papet making by-product-used
by the plant,
Mills generally take downtime
during the holiday seasons, and
the Florida Coast Paper Company
mill and others have taken
extended shutdown time, magni-
fying this problem.
Garrett said the plant's down-
time should allow them to
increase their stockpile of those
products.


GCCC's Community

Survey Will Provide
Important Information
Gulf Coast Community
College is currently conducting a
community survey of its three-
county service district attempting
to gain information critical to
improving its services to
S community residents.
'This effort is very important
to the future of Gulf Coast. My
hope is that most of our citizens
will respond to this survey," said
GCCC President Bob McSpadden.
The survey, which is printed
on bright gold paper, Is Inserted
locally in this issue of The Star,
Apalachicola Times, and
Carrabelle Times in order for Gulf
and Franklin County residents to
assist in the survey.
"We need to know what mem-
bers of the communities we serve
believe about the importance of
services we provide, as well as
how well we provide those ser-
vices," added McSpadden.
He also stated that the survey
can be folded and stapled or taped
closed. No postage is necessary
for this business:reply mail.
Additionally, the question-
naire can be found in The News
Herald's ,Culf/Franklin section
today, and ,available at the infor-
mation desk in Gulf Coast
Community College's Student
Union and the Gulf/Franklin
Center.


Last full load of coal was loaded Tuesday at Material Transfer Inc,'s shipping terminal located
on the Gulf County Canal -Star photo


Termination of MTI Coal Contract

Stops Daily Coal Shipments

Fifty-five (55) workers for Apalachicola National
Railroad were notified of their termination Friday as
the firm reacted to the suit and subsequent termina-
tion of the contract between them and Seminole
Electric to haul coal to Seminole's coal-fired powered
generating plant in Palatka.
Apalachicola Northern Railroad's workforce has
been reduced to 19 employees from a total of 74.
Malcolm Jones,,Vice President of St. Joe Company.
(parent company to Apalachicola National Railroad)
was in town last Wednesday (January 13) meeting
with employees and management. He delivered the
bad news that the workforce would have to be
reduced in light of the termination of the contract.
Those exact numbers were not revealed until after
company workers were notified of the decision Friday.


As previously reported in The
Star, Seminole is the only cus-
tomer of Material Transfer, Inc.
(MTI) and is the largest customer
of Apalachicola Northern
Railroad.
According to Wayne Parrish,
Vice President of Apalachicola
Northern Railroad. the last fully
loaded coal train pulled out
Tuesday or Wednesday of this
week, and a partial load of the
remaining inventory will roll out
late this week.
The company will now revert
to approximately two freight
trains per week, serving Arizona
Chemical, Premier Services, and
General Chemical as its remain-
ing key customers.
When in operation, Florida
Coast Paper Company serves as a
major rail transportation user,
but with the current shutdown
and uncertainty existing in the
paper market. It is feared that the
future of the railroad also lies in
the balance.
Parrish said a generous sev-
erance package was going to be
offered to the 55 terminated
workers. The exact amount of
that package is yet to be released
by the company.
He said the railroad company
also plans to liquidate all rolling
stock not, currently in use. That
will include locomotives, box
cars, chip hoppers, wood flats,
and miscellaneous heavy equip-


ment.
During a workshop meeting
with the Port St. Joe City
Commissioners last Wednesday
afternoon, Malcolm Jones told
commissioners that the loss of
the coal contract, coupled with
the shutdown of the mill, netted a
loss of 900-o of the railroad's busi-
ness.
He also said St. Joe Company
intends to respond vehemently
with all of the muscle they can to
the suit filed by Seminole Electric
which seeks to terminate the coal
hauling contract by buying out
the existing time remaining-
through 2004.
Jones said the railroad
intends to fulfill obligations to its
remaining customers.
Material Transfer, Inc. has
made no announcement yet on
what the future holds for the 10
employees currently working at
the site.
MTT's parent company,
International Shipholding Cor-
poration, has proceeded with
legal action to challenge
Seminole's suit in court. No word
has been received yet on the
suit's progress, but Jones did
comment during Wednesday's
meeting that he understood the
firm's temporary restraining
order had not been granted by
the courts.


St. Joe Company Expresses Interest In Leasing City's New Marina

Letter Faxed Wednesday, Apologizing for Missing Bid Deadline of Tuesday, Offering to Negotiate Terms


Port St. Joe city commissioners were stunned when
they found no bids for proposals were entered to lease and
operate the cIty's 159 slip marina during bid openings
Tuesday evening.
In fact, only one proposal was received from Clifton
Marine Services, and that was for managing the facility,
not leasing, which the city preferred.
It had been no secret that the St. Joe Company had
said it was going to enter a bid for the project, and its
absence drew concern from the board.
City Attorney Billy Joe Rish told the board one of its
options was to attempt to open the marina operations.up
for negotiations with interested parties.
Wednesday morning, Chris Hine, Vice-President .of
Commercial/Industrial Development for St. Joe Company,
faxed a letter to the city apologizing for missing the bid
deadline (Tuesday) and seeking to enter into negotiations


with the city regarding leasing and operating the Port St.
Joe marina.
Hine stated in his letter that financial proformas from
the firm's marina consultant were late in arriving and key
decision makers were traveling and unable to be contact-
ed. He did try to reach city personnel by phone, but was
unable to do so because they had left for another meeting.
Hine requested a meeting with Bruce Blomgren (St.
Joe marina consultant) and the city next week to begin
negotiations for the marina's operations.
"We consider it important to take the time to properly
review the project financial with the intent to make the
marina a successful operation provided Arvida/St. Joe
and the City of Port St. Joe can come to agreement on
terms," Hine stated in his letter; .
The city responded positively to Hine's letter, agreeing
to set up a meeting with Arvida next week.


City commissioners are seeking to lease the marina for
an amount that would pay payments on the $2.5 million
low interest Rural Development Agency loan used to build
the marina. They also intend to lease the out-parcels of
property adjacent to the marina as a revenue source for
the city.
An agreement will hopefully be hashed out within the
next few weeks to operate the marina.
In Other Business
*Adopted an ordinance defining "Public Place" as it
pertains to city-owned property. The purpose of the ordi-
nance is to exclude property leased or managed as a com-
mercial enterprise or business. The ordinance was
introduced for the purpose of leasing the marina opera-
tions and out-parcels of property for private ventures.
.Scheduled a workshop for Thursday at 7:00 p.m. (ET)

Gulf County EDC "Brainstorms" With Rural County Recruitment Manager


Gulf County's Economic
Development Committee (EDC)
held a brainstorming session with
Adrian J. Mayer (Business
Recruitment Manager for Rural
Counties Enterprise Florida),
Gulf County commissioners, Port
St. Joe city commissioners, and
businessmen and community
leaders from across the county
Tuesday evening.
EDC member Tommy Pitts
called the meeting to order, stat-
ing the group had been in contact
with Enterprise Florida seeking
help and guidance as they worked
toward revitalizing Gulf County's
economy.
Mayer's purpose for meeting
with the cross section of county
leaders was to gather information
and determine the needs and
wants of the county so Enterprise
Florida could assemble a plan as
to what assistance they could
offer in the process.
During discussions of the
county attributes, both the deep
water port and rail service were


listed as major attributes. But, a
failure to get a commitment from
St. Joe Company for available
land to develop the port and
current uncertainties surround-
ing Apalachicola Northern
Railroad have clouded both
assets' viability.
Mixed signals concerning the
availability of land for develop-
ment from the St. Joe Company
were also discussed. The City of
Port St. Joe, county commission-
ers and EDC all seemed to have a
different interpretation of exactly
what St. Joe Company would do
and how that process would work.
During discussions after the
meeting, most people present
seemed to agree that better com-
munication and coordination of
economic development efforts
were a must in order for the
community to maximize its efforts
and deal with prospective busi-
nesses in a professional manner.
Mayer listed four major
questions to carry back with him


to present to Enterprise Florida as
as areas of need for Gulf County:
1-Help organize a plan to
market Gulf County;


2-Identify and attract 4-Coach through "how to"
prospective target businesses; process in presenting Gulf County
3-List available grants and (See RECRUITMENT on Page 3A)
financial packages;

Getting Results

A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, when the Department of
Education was hiking the requirements for students participating
in athletics, folks like to have come unglued at the idea. Athletes
and their parents .objected to the requirement because it might
prevent little Johnny from playing his way through college, or even
high school. The rule change was to prevent just that; an athlete
"playing" his way through school.
Those who were interested in the young people obtaining an
education first and performing on the ball field, with the band or
as a cheerleader, second, hailed the new regulations as an incen-
tive to learn. They didn't alter their rules, but stuck to their guns,
Now, the results of these new rules are beginning to be seen.
Better grades are the norm now. High school athletes are begin-
ning to invade the honor graduate ranks. College athletes are
beginning more and more to finish their courses instead of just
doing enough to stay eligible. More and more we're beginning to
see honor students along the line, running the football, playing in
the band, strutting their stuff as a cheerleader. It's refreshing!
JUST LAST WEEK, ATHLETIC DIRECTOR Chuck Gannon'
furnished us with a list of football players who qualified for the
title, "honor student". There were 25 students, making all "A" or
"B". That's virtually every young man on the team. We only had
reports from the volleyball, cross country racers, and cheerleading
squads in addition to the football team, but they all reported a
great majority of their participants as being in the high grade'
brackets.
We can be proud of our young athletes because they are show-
ing us their prowess in more ways than on the field of athletic
competition.
WE THINK WE WOULD HAVE such achieving students
whether or not it was a state requirement that in order to play,
they must achieve academically. Even before the state started
requiring higher grades in order to play, our'coaches insisted that
student athletes make passing grades as a requirement to
play-higher than the state requirements. They caught flack from
this requirement, but they stuck with their principles in spite 'of
the grumbling.
Young athletes need to set an example for other students, just
as professional athletes need to set examples for others by the
lives they lead. We're just as proud of their classroom accom-
plishments as we are of their athletic accomplishments.



Getting Personal

WE THINK MORE OF THE ST. JOE Corporation officials
than we formerly did. We think more of their method of doing
business as a result of one of their officials coming to Port St. Joe,
to explain to their workers just what their position was in the
operation of the Apalachicola Northern Railroad during these
troubled times. They couldn't give a definite explanation of what
was going to happen, but they explained how the future would
affect the railroad if different scenarios were played out. ,
Their actions were the kind of actions we were trying to-
request out of the officials Ion a par with the St. Joe officials who
visited here] of the Florida Coast Paper Company, last week.
The railroad workers now know what forces will influence the
future and if certain things come to pass, they know \what their
individual roles with the railroad will be. They don't need to
depend on rumor, "they say" or "I heard".
WE'RE LOOKING FOR A VISIT from Mr. Methl to tell us
first hand what his plans are. He owes us that.
The uncertainty of his paper mill here. is causing many good
people to put their homes up for sale and look for jobs to support
their families, elsewhere. A word from the CEO of the firm could
stop this activity or it could give them firm reason to continue the
sacrifice of material things they have acquired.
GOOD PAYING JOBS ARE NOT THAT plentiful in a small
community such as Port St. Joe. We can't readily absorb some 550
workers in the life style they have enjoyed in the past. They need
to know quickly and authoritatively what the future holds.
Those of us who don't work at the paper mill need to know
what we can depend on, too. Maybe. not to as great a degree, but
it is necessary that we know what your plans are. too. We have
Investments that might be endangered. We have government
agencies which must be operated. We have utilities that are
depending on you. whether we want to or not.


Hunker Down With Kes

You can file this story today
under "nobody cares but me".
We celebrated Martin Luther
King, Jr's birthday Monday. That'
would be the eighteenth of the'
month.. His actual birthday was
last Friday on the fifteenth. Now,
I'm sure it's no big deal, and Mr.
King himself probably just appre-
clates being remembered . on
any day . but somehow-for
me-it just takes a little away from
the party ... .
Since we are fairly well certain
of the exact day Dr. King was born
... .why not celebrate that day!
If my memory serves me cor-
rectly, in the past six years we
have nationally recognized Dr.
King one time (1996) on his actual
,birthday. This "pick-a-good-day-
close-by" seems to work for every-
body, but somehow, doesn't it dis-
tract just a little .,..
Is it economically more feasi-,
ble to have all these "remem-
brances" on Monday? Is it simply.
more convenient? Are we that ate
up -with a three day weekend? Is it
a national law that, every holiday
must fall on a Monday?
Are we celebrating a man, a
life, a legacy .. or just celebrat-


Ing a day off?
\Ve do the same thing for
George Washington and Abraham
Lincoln. These poor fellas aren't
important enough to 'get" a day of
their own. They're lumped into
President's Day and celebrated
on-you guessed it!-the nearest
Moriday between,, around or
Among February 12th and 22nd.
Poor, unlucky chaps had the, ever-
lasting misfortune to be born too,
close together.
And the worst part for a lot of
folks, they don't even get off work
that day!
They might not be remem-,
,Ibered at all except for everybody
cutting out their heads back in the'
second grade. Boy howdy, there's a
real legacy! And quick now. which
was born on the 12th, and which
on the 22nd?
I'll tell you something: else
about this born-on-one-day-and-
celebrate-on-another phenome-
Snon, It can be misleading.
January 26th is marked down
on my calendar as Australia Day. I
assume by that, that something
really big. and memorable .took
place "down under" that those
folks, choose to remember and cel-
ebrate on that very special day!
But ;did it really happen; on the
, 26th? Or did It actually take place,
on the 19th . and they just
arbitrarily selected a "convenient"
day kinda close to the real thing?
How about Waitangi Day in
New Zealand? Can you tell me for


absolute certainty that February
the 6th is the exact day the
Waltangl's did their thing. or Is it
just the day we commemorate with
the islanders?
And I don't want to even bring
up Easter! I've spent a lifetime con-
fused over that one. It someUmes
comes in April, sometimes March .
I just go along with whatever is
inmy Sunday School book ....
Maybe this wanting' it to hap-,
pen on the actual day it "happened
on" goes back to my childhood. I1
remember one year my birthday
fell on a Wednesday. 'Course, we
'had prayer meeting. and it was a'
'school night . We don't do
nothing for my birthdays. Mother .
put together a hamburger sup-'.
per/birthday party on the follow-
ing Saturday.
She really went all out. Ricky
and Yogi and Buddy and John and
Jerry brought gifts. We ,played
games.. There was a big cake.
Thankfully, there were, no silly
hats, but they did gather around,
sang happy birthday: and encour-
aged me to "blow out the candles"
in one breath. I was embarrassed
like you're supposed to be .'. it
was a real birthday party in every
sense, but .
I didn't' feel 'right". There was%
something about the whole
evening that didn't "fit". It looked
like a birthday and seemed like a
birthday and smelled like a birth-
day, and if someone happened by
and saw the revery, the favors, the
presents, the cake . they would

have immediately yelled out. "Hey,
It's someone's birthday!" But. in
truth, it wasn't. It was just the
closest, most convenient day to the
real thing.
But it was not my birthday!
That could be the scar I never
got over.
I tell you another one that can.
be confusing. A lot of employers
give their workers his, or her,
birthday off. It's a nice gesture that- .-:,
can. and often does, go haywire. I "

is June 20th. Well, somehow, June ,

4th. Some years. Other times she
wants it on the Wednesday before '
Thanksgiving. Buit lately, she's-.
been' more, akin- to taking it in,,
December, extending her
Christmas break!
Out of hand? Well, I heard one,
year she had five birthdays!
The point is .. it's not as spe-
cial if you don't "enjoy", "remem-.,
ber", "celebrate", "commemorate"
on the special day!
Shoot, they've got things so
mixed around,, I can't :even find -,
Maypole Day.
And if we love to sting our "off
days" together, why riot just save -

all the aforementioned, plus

we could get the whole month offl! !

Big, Smelly Mystery Is Solved At The Office


ONE DAY LAST week' every-
one in the office was being avoid-
ed like they had a bad case of BO.
Jt smelled like it too. One could'
visit our front office wvheir the
heater was on and the odor was`
. powerful ... to put it succinct-
ly in one word.
I looked suspiciously at Kim,.
Carol and Frenchie as if they had
not taken their daily bath. They-
each and everyone assured me
that the odor wasn't emanating'
from them. Still, the odor persist-
ed. I sniffed my own underarm
area to find the origin of the foul
odor which was disturbing my
peace and comfort.
I knew it .wasn't the paper'
mill, because it hadn't run in five
months; besides, the wind was
blowing from the wrong direction.
So, the search continued.
My aftershave lotion was sus-
pect, but after a minute investiga-
tion, it was found that this wasn't
the source of the distinctive pun-
gent odor which was causing


ETAOIN SHRDLU


such distress to the olfactory
organs.

WE SEARCHED THROUGH
the place looking high and low to
no avail. The odor had persisted
until it now was a full blown
stinkl :
Living with an odor is bad
enough but a full blown stink is
almost unbearable at times and
this one was worse than a case of
unwashed feet
At first, we just looked at one
another and sniffed. A little later
we started looking at the bottoms
of each others' shoes. Then, we


. by Wesley Ramsey


would sort of fan the air when we
smelled the unsavory odor, as if
that might clear the air.
I think poor Smudgy came in
for more than her share of suspi-
cion during this time. She got
sent to the dog beauty parlor
before her Saturday night ritual
came around, only, to have the
odor persist when she was gone
for awhile. After she returned, all
clean and, sparkling and with her
ration of smell good, applied, the
odor hung on!
It wasn't Smudgy!

AS A LAST RESORT we
started searching through the


heating system-especially' the -
vent system. That's when we"'"
found it, tucked up under ai'
heater distribution pipe; a dead,
mouse
How could such a little ani-
mal make so huge a stink?
I don't think it was one of
your run-of-the-mill mice, from
the way it was stinking.
-' ,We, knew what to do, then. We
sent Daniel Raffield to retrieve the
said mouse and properly dispose
of It, which he did in short order.
Daniel is a first-class dead mouse

Watching the Falcons win
and seeing their players doing the
celebration "dirty bird dance" has
been a decade long dream come
true for fans. Even the cor-
morants' and pelicans along the
beaches seemed to be in a jubi-
lant mood Sunday after the
Falcons' dramatic win. One bird,
though, a much loved one, is
missing from the Mexico Beach
area.
Deer hunters are getting
rightfully excited because the
deer rut is beginning. Serious
hunters are observing active
scrapes and more buck activity
during the day. With the recent
cold freezes, much of the avail-
able browse has also been burned
back-this will concentrate does,
and then the bucks; closer to
feeding stations.
The next few weeks should
really heat up for area.whitetail
hunters. Dove, turkey and duck
hunting seasons are over for this
fall, and small game hunters
should take in some squirrel,
quail, and rabbit hunting avail-
able in our area.
Speckled trout fishing will
S close February 1 to 28 in
Northwest Florida, but coastal
anglers are having an excellent
year so far. Fishing points along
the Intracoastal or in feeder
creeks have, located good .num-
bers of trout. Many of the trout
are undersized, -but the number
of smaller trout is a good sign for
the trout's future,
With so much water in these
areas for the fish to congregate,
some anglers are slow trolling
sinking Mirro-Lures along the
shorelines or on the channel
edges until they find fish. Then
jigs tipped with shrimp fished
very slowly will find some keep-
ers.
Indian Pass is producing'
fewer trout right now, but the size
of these gator trout make up for;
the lack in numbers. Many of

these trout are in the four to five
pound range. Chartreuse grubs
under Equalizer corks on a mov-
ing tide are taking some of these
big lunker trout.
The grouper have thinned out
on nearshore structures, but the
red snapper are still reliable and
hungry. Many of the more popu-
lar published spots are not pro-
ducing catches unless you follow
the, first light-first bite theory.

tight to structure and will not.
move off even a few yards for a
bait, so fish right in the wrecks.
As the water temperature
finally begins to cool down, the
sheepshead and flounder fishing
should begin to heat up.
Normally the sheepies are
bunched up under the buoys and
around the range markers by this
time, but the water temperatures
have stayed unusually high.
A Spanish mackerel, yes, a
Spanish mackerel, was brought
to port this past weekend.
Needless to say, the water tem-
peratures are still above normal
for January.
Several years ago, a pelican
with an injured leg showed up at
Hide-A-Way Harbor in Mexico
Beach. Owners Jim and Kay
McCullough took the bird to a vet
to see if anything could be done-
but the damage was permanent.
"Chester", as he became
known, could not perch on the
harbor poles as his other feath-
ered friends, and his water land-
ings were a rather pitiful sight.
Chester chose instead to crash
land on top of the boat sheds at
the marina and hope for a. free
meal from caring anglers.
Year after year, Chester
arrived when the bait fish became
scarce in the Gulf, but not this
year. I hope Chester opted
instead to go to Miami to help his
friends--The Falcons. Ihope so. I
sure do.

Fishing Report
for January 1st through 17th
The red snapper have been providing everybody a good catch and a
lot of fun on the day the wind laid enough to put out to the reef balls and
artificial reefs. The grouper, bigger fish, and black snapper all were bit-
ing good. It is unusual to have more than five or six days in January that
you can go offshore fishing, but on those days you can, the large snap-
per, grouper, and scamp are biting real good.
in the bay and Intracoastal Waterway, the speckled trout, reds and
sheepshead are providing some real fun and good catches. The range
markers and bouys have plent of large sheepshead around them and a
few black seabass. Look for the first Spanish in February after three days
of warm spring weather. be safe, have fun. and good luck!

"FAITH" IS AN
EXTRA INGREDIENT
As we fill each prescription, we know that in addition to
the ingredients that your physician specifies, there is an
extra intangible ingredient that does not appear in writing.
It is 'Faith' that through his knowledge and experience he
has prescribed a medicine that will help to cure or relieve an
illness.
Sometimes, this 'Faith' can be as important as the
medicine itself. We too have a great deal of faith in the
accuracy of the prescriptions we dispense and we derive
much satisfaction when you tell us on a future visit that
someone in your family is now well.

health needs to the students.
Dental contracts have been
entered into, with dentists from
both ends of the county to provide
a full scope of dental care for
those students needing it.
One major treatment program
Is the teen pregnancy prevention
campaign. Kent- said that Gulf
County Is fifth among the state's
67 counties in the incidence of
teen pregnancy.
"This shouldn't be," said
Kent.
Another program coming up,
would stress healthy kids and
their continued care. Kent said
': that over 36.000 cases were given
attention through the schools last
year. and he hopes to enlarge the
number and its effectiveness dur-
ing the current school year.
The program is financed by
state, school board, and private
contributions of funds.


Group Finishes First Phase

of Project to Monitor Source

of Water Coming Into Bay
The St. Joe Bay Committee, at its most
recent meeting Thursday, had a report by
Rodney S. DeHan, Ph.D on the source of St.
Joseph Bay waters. The report followed nearly
a year long study of water coming into the bay
in an attempt to arrive at its source.
Doctor DeHan declared, "The bay is more
open than we first thought, interchanging
waters with the Gulf of Mexico on a regular
basis.
He said its source of new water is largely
ground water from' various sources. The Gulf
County Canal, which empties into the bay at
Highland View," is largely made up of a supply
of ground water, draining from the upland por-
tion of Gulf County. The bay also has a con-
siderable source of underground streams
which empty into its basin.


Another surprise the re-
search revealed was that water
flows back and forth between the
bay and the gulf under St. Joseph
Peninsula, along with the tides. It
carries with it effluent from the
septic tanks' which have been
installed on the peninsula in the
past few years.
"It's very evident, "from dye
tests, that the septic tank effluent
is contained in the flushing
action," remarked the speaker.:
Dr. DeHan said his team is ,
currently seeking: an additional
grant for further studies in the
bay to determine what effect the
source of water coming into the
bay has on its marine life and
plant life. Their studies are con-
ducted as a joint action by the
Federal Department of Environ-
mental Protection Agency and the
Florida State University Marine
Studies Department.
Seagrass Report-Given
Also on the agenda, Jeffrey ..
"Chip" Kirschenfeld, who is an


environmental specialist with the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection office in
Pensacola. reported on his work
and study of seagrass propaga-
tion. The grasses have been wax-
: ing and waning in spots in St.
Joseph Bay for the past several
years, with several plots dying
completely out.
'Kirschenfeld said he has
been making extensive studies on
Show best to repropagate the
grasses in his laboratory in
Pensacola. He has developed a.
method of cloning seagrass
seedlings which is proving very
effective in the survival rate. He
noted that transplanting the
seedlings not cloned resulted in a
60%'' loss. while the cloned plants
have a 70% survival rate.
He expressed a desire to do
experimental work in St. Joseph
Bay during the coming year in an
attempt to get the grass beds
,'flourishing once again. He
touched a little on the results of,
'scarring by power boats in the


bay, and said that some of this is
long-term damage, and some is
gone in a week or two.
"If the scarring is parallel
with the direction of tidal action,
scarring is just washed out and
makes deeper ditches. If it is at
an angle to the tidal action, it
heals itself in a short while," he
stated.
The environmentalist said
Lhat the grasses are vital for the
protection of baby sea life, con-
taining erosion, and many other
uses of interest to the well-being
of any body of water.
Subdivision Discussed
Discussion was held con-
cerning a permit application that
'had been filed by Treasure
Shores Limited of Panama City
Beach. It was discussed by the
group. The prime concern was
the effect such a subdivision
Would have on the waters of St.
Joseph Bay.
A subdivision consisting of
345.47 acres is being planned for
the area just south of St. Joseph


Peninsula, in Sections 13.and 14.
The project will be on the east
side of Highway 30-A and will
contain 170.33 acres of devel-
opable property. The remaining
173.39 acres would be offered for
perpetual protection through a
conservation easement.
The permitting process is
currently in the hands of the
Corps of Engineers for approval.
The Bay Committee desired to
have a public hearing held on the
permit before it is finally granted,
due to its proximity to the bay
waters.
It has already been autho-
rized by the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection.

with you ...
There Are Many Things My
Dad Can' Do
; My dad does eat healthy
foods cause it can make him
'strong. Because my dad likes to be
strong. My dad lifts weights and
arm wrestles every day. He eats
lots of healthy foods when he gets
hungry. The kinds of foods he eats
is spinach and the other healthy
food he eats is broccoli..
Everytime I'm helpful to him
he is real nice to me and takes me,
fishing on his. boat. When he dri-
ves the boat he stops for a minute
and dives. Then he gets a water-
proof paper' and he writes on it to
see if there are big sharks. He
likes to dive up sharks. The big
ones he leaves alone and he catch-
es the little ones and puts them in
the boat And he. cooks them on a.
- stove and'eats them. When he gets
home he sits down and u'atches.

After he watches tv for a little
while we go hunting together After
a while we see some bucks and
we shoot them in the head. Then
we dress them. Then dad cooks
them on the stove. My dad makes
them like ham so my sister will eat
them and then she thinks they,
taste deliciously So she eats more
than anybody
I love my dad so much that I
think he's 'the best dad I would

News From Guidance .
Learning Disability (continued...)
We always check the eyes or ears
or other medical problems before
checking for a learning disability.
The learning disability is caused
by the brain and not the eyes.
The eye functions as a cam-
era and after the picture is taken,
the image is sent to the brain by
way, of optic nerve. Hence, pro-
cessing. The camera does not
know what the eye has seen to
photograph until the film is
processed to make the image.
The brain interprets images
seen by your eyes, but if a learn-
ing disability is present, there is
no image through the eye to the
brain, thus a processing problem.
These processing problems
need to be determined by a
trahied person who can evaluate
the child. Usually tests that are
given are intelligence and achieve-
ment and processing. (To be con-
tinued.)

and Anecdotes
"Martin Luther King"
by Brittany Wood, Third Grade
Martin Luther King didr not
believe infighting, and he liked to
read. When someone was trying to
fight him, he would try to talk his
way out of trouble. He was '39

Nobel Prize. Martin Luther was a
good person and he died in 1968.'
Martin'Luther King had a dream.

"Martin Luther King"
by Cody Andrews, Third Grade
Martin Luther King, Jr. was a
good leader and he didn't believe
in violence. He was 89 when he
died. He wanted blacks and
whites to be friends. He was a
preacher at a black church. He
was a nice man.
The man who killed him was .
put in jail and on the news -the..
other day. The King family said
that they forgave the guy whod shot
him. They didn't think the man
(James Earl Ray) killed Martin
Luther King. They think somebody
else killed him.
"I Can't Find My Picture"
In Alisa Walker's kindergarten
class last week, the students had
been talking about Dr. Martin
Luther King and then they colored
a picture of him. Soon a little girl

oneday is as a thousand years,
and ,a' thousand years as one
day ,. ..
Our society seems to always
want instant gratification.
However, life is an, ongoing-
process." We do -not solve every
problem at the end of each day.
Oliver F. Taylor I'Phada friend years ago who!
O e F Ta r used to say "God give me
Visitation Minister,. First
United Methodist Church patience and give'it to me right
now!" In his statement he
emphasized his immediate ,need for patience.'
Every day we are confronted with challenges.
Sometimes stress gets us down. We need to know howv
to handle stress. The best way that I know is not to go
it alone in life. We need to let God's spirit direct us as
Christians. We need to let go and let God be a moving
force in our lives.,

MEDITATIONS OF A
Qlountru irearcer

By LOWELL F. ADAMS

Religion or

"Whosoever believes
Jesus is the Christ is
born of God."
7T First John 5:1
T HERE is a tremendous difference in being
Religious and being a Child of God. Everyone who is
a Child of God should be devoted to religious
activity. 'But not replacing God's Truth with
man-made religion. Being religious means, among
other things, devotion to your faith, which may be,
Baptist, Methodist, Church of Christ, Lutheran, or
any one of the many different denominations.
The people who crucified Jesus were extremely
religious, but they were a great distance from a
proper faith in God. (See Matthew, Chapter 23).
Many of us stand in danger of being religious, to
the exclusion of a real honest faith in our Holy
Father, and The Saviour He has sent.
Many years ago, I was talking one day with the
pastor of a church of another denomination. In the
course of our talk, he told me that no one could be
saved, unless they were a member of his church, his
denominationn. ,
That is carrying one's religion to the extreme.
Many Christians feel a bit partial to their own
denomination. We sort of entertain the feeling that if
anyone really wants to be pleasing to God, they
should become members of "our church".
Religion separates one faith from the other. It is
my belief there are saved Children of God in every
denomination. And God knows very well, who and
where they are. Being religious is not what saves.
"Whosoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born
of God". I John 5:1. "He that hath the Son hath LIFE;
he that hath not the Son hath not life." I John 5:12.
There is One God and One Saviour. And there is
one Law of God for the Christian, "A new
Commandment I give unto you. That you love one
another as I have loved you." (John 13:34 and
15:12) ; : r
Where love reigns, sin can not prevail.

Doctor's -

discovery may

end obesity
HILTON HEAD, S.C -- A doctor
be]iee.; Lhal anatiural formula conlain-j
ingthe e\raci of small Asian fruil can
help cause significant weight loss. .
AnthonN\ A Conte, MN D reported in
anAmericn Medical Journal hat he
formula.. no%\ called Bio-Rex 3000.
caused patients to lose more than twice
as much weight as those in a control
group on the same fat reduced diet
Neither group was instructed to. de-.
crease the amount of food they ate or to
increase their exercise levels. An article
published in the Inmerican Jourial of
Clinical Nutrition says that )ou don'
have to reduce the amount of fdod you
eat to lose weight, provided that you
limit the fat.
Dr. Conte says that animal studies
suggest the mechanism behind the
weight reduction isdue to interruption
of the "Krebs CN cle". an important slep
in the body's fal storage process.' He,,
says it may worn the same way in hu-
mans. According to Dr. Conte, "'The
best part ofthis unique disco\ ery isthat
it' is not a drug, but a dietary food
supplement., The Asian fruit, called
garcinia, is similar tlocitrus fruit found
in the United States with one big excep-
tion-- it may help some people fight
obesity! While Dr.Conte's study maybe
preliminary, the exclusive North Ameri-
can distributor, Phillips Gulf Corp., is
calling the Bio-Rex 3000 supplement
"Nature's Ideal Diet Aid."
According to a spokesperson for the
company, Bio-Rex 3000 is now avail-
able through pharmacies and nutrition
stores or call 1-800-729-8446 or visit
