Another Chance

THE GULF COUNTY COMMISSION is talking about
investing $10,000 to correct a mistake made by Gulfs voters back
in last November when they voted down the capability to offer tax
incentives to new or expanding'industry to locate within our bor-
ders. The same offer doesn't stand for current firms. It is only for'
prospective; businesses. Those presently here have already had
their shot at any perks offered for locating in the county.
Gulfs voters voted the idea down,.2,007 to 1,828, when they
last had a chance' to express themselves on this particular issue.
The tax Incentive is needed by our Economic Development,
Committee as a..bargaining tool to attract new firms to. Gulf
County to; make more Jobs available for our people-especially pur
youth, who are approaching the, family-raising stage of their lives.
WE HAVEN'T PELT LIKE WE' needed such a tool in the
recent past, because, didn't we have plenty of good jobs to go
around? Wasn't everybody that wanted to, working? Didn't most
of the young adults, growing up, want to leave home to find their
fortune?: .
Haveih't these things changed?
No longer can we sit complacently by and depend on the jobs
at hand. No longer are we the envy 'of all Northwest Florida. No
longer can we brag about being able to afford anything we might
desire. We suddenly find ourselves in the job market, scratching
and clawing for bur very existence, just like everybody else.
WE TRUST THAT OUR PEOPLE have seen the handwrit-
ing on the wall. We trust that they now see the necessity of giving
their EDC the main tool they need to "sell" Gulf County to the
firms which supply the jobs that make the economic juices flow.
Our county government has no business being forced into this
position. We should have given them this authority last fall aind
saved ourselves S 10,000 and nearly a year of lead time in the bar-
gain.
We fervently believe that every one of our citizens now see the
necessity to either fish or cut bait!


FifthChampionship?


FOR THE FIFTH TIME IN SIX years, the Port St. Joe High
School Tiger-Sharks are on the verge of bringing the state basket-
ball championship trophy home on a silver platter for the home
folk to savor. The team is gaining the same reputation as Malone.
Just two more games and the trophy will be ours once again!
The team seems to thrive on the hard work of preparation to"
become champions. They are not supermen or flaunt super genes
or talent. One would expect that they had these attributes, since
they repeat the feat year after year and because they are our
youth "
"BASKETBALL" IS BEING TALKED more and more in
the last couple of weeks. There are folks talking "basketball" in the
last few days, who never even touched a round ball before, nor,
played, the game. Folks have become knowledgeable about "treys"',
"picks" "fouls", and other basketball tertns-whb were never famil-
iar wiith these terms before. More and i more people are'talkrig
about free throw averages, ball handling, and fast breaks, than
ever talked about or understood these terms before.
That's good!
But, it doesn't take one. familiar with the capabilities of a
Michael Jordan to appreciate a good high school basketball game.
All it takes is a pride in your hometown product and their abilities
to handle the basketball, and you are a dyed-in-the-wool fanl You
can be enthusiastic about the home team, too..
IT ISN'T OFTEN THAT A. TQWN has the opportunity tp
win five championships in six years.'It especially .isn't often that a
school thesize of Port St. Joe or Malone ..: Ifas the opportu-
nity to win even one! Our young men have done it four times ,I
already and are working on the fifth title. They should earn some
credit for the regularity with which they are coming out on top.
We've had championships here before in virtually every sport
played in high school. We have received the state's Fred E. Rozelle.-
Sportsmanship Award for our school on several occasions, of
which we can be justly proud. But, our young people have never
won back-to-back championship trophies with such regularity
before.
We must have the right combination of superior athletes and
coaching, or superior determination! .

and which follows our every step.
She's about six or seven pounds

"attacks" me every time I get a
morsel to eat and she thinks she

If it's a piece of candy, a
piece of fruit, a piece of a sand-

have a bite, too. You'd think she
was starving to death, the way
she gallops toward me when I
have, a morsel of food in my
hand. She looks expectantly with
her 'stub of a tail wagging 90
miles an hour, until I share a
bite with her.

is peppermint. I don't know' why,

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY MARC 9


St. Joe Co. Puts 800,000 Acres On Block


100,000 Acres
To Go On Sale
Immediately
The St. Joe Company cur-
rently owns approximately 64% of
Gulf County, but that could
change as details. of its plans to
sell 800,000 acres of Northwest
Florida timberlands materialize.
In a press release Monday,
March 1st, CEO Peter Rummell
stated, "We are beginning to
unlock the hundreds of millions
of dollars of value embedded in
St. Joe's million acres of forests."
St. Joe announced intentions


to sell, through an auction
process, approximately 800,000
of its timberlands, with the first
100,000 acres going on the mar-
ket immediately.
That 100,000 acres consists
of stands of planted pines in
Liberty, Franklin, Wakulla and
Jefferson counties in Northwest
Florida.
While this first offering does
not include Gulf County, it does
stand to reason that at least some
of the 234,477 acres owned by St.
Joe within Gulf 'County---nearly
one fourth of Its Florida hold-
ings-could be included.in future
blocks offered for sale by them.
Rummell stated that, "The
parcels offered -for sale in the


future will be sized, grouped and
the transactions timed in order to
obtain maximum value. "Typical-
ly, packages will total about
100,000 acres each in order to
attract the best buyers. Under our
development plans, none of the
timberland to be offered for sale
has significant real estate, devel-
opment potential in the next 15 to
20 years."
:How, or if at all, this will effect
Gulf County is unclear at this
point and time. St. Joe has not
released data revealing how much
or what parcels might be included
in any future land sales by them.
In this first 100,000 acre
package offered by St. Joe the


sale of approximately 89,000
acres will be managed by Morgan
Stanley Dean Witter. The sale of
approximately 13,000 additional
acres is, being managed by
Natural Resource' Planning
Services, Inc.
The press release also pointed
out that all sales are subject to
receipt of an acceptable bid
including price, terms and condi- '
tions..
"We Intend to re-deploy the:
proceeds in' ways that most effec-
tively deliver value (o our share-
holders, including the implemen-
tation of our core real estate
development and service strate-
gy," Rummell commented on St.
Joe's plans.


Moore Rules Not

Guilty In Net Case


Gulf County Judge Robert M.
Moore ruled in favor of Lamar
Moore on three net charge viola-
tions filed against him by the
Florida Marine Patrol.
In a bench trial before Judge
Moore last Thursday, he rendered
a verbal verdict of not guilty on all
three counts following the trial.
He also advised bqth parties that
he would prepare a written opin-
ion on the verdict within the.next
few days.


Marine patrol, officers had,
charged Moore with fishing with
nets exceeding the 500 square
foot limitation, failure to have the
proper license, and failure to have
his Identification number proper-
ly displayed on his. nefs.
In February 1 1th's. edition of,

kindergarten area. "I think recent
experience in this area has con-
vinced us that we want tile, not
carpet, on the floors," Kelley said.
"Definitely!" interjected Redd.
"We don't need carpet on those
floors."
On a unanimous vote the
board decided to Issue a change
order, opting for tile as a floor cov-
ering, replacing the originally
designed carpet.
ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL
Member Mary Pridgeon ques-
tioned an earlier decision to go
through the process of selecting
an assistant principal for
Wewahitchka High School. "We
don't know whether our tax
income will support the position."
she said.
Redd quipped, "1 definitely
think we need an assistant princi-
pal in that high school. We would
put too much load on a principal,
asking him to operate the school
without an assistant."
'. S- if!-: :' -:': _, -r -
-.. ..Superintendent. ., Kelley.
e. xlIied thht the'prbcess would
take at least'" two mon ths't'
accomplish and that the board
would effectively be hiring an
assistant for next school term.
"We should go ahead with the
process, at least," Kelley said.
S With economics in mind, the
board decided to proceed with the
selection process, even if they had
to delay the hiring for a period of
time.
TRADE AT HOME
Oscar Redd said the board
should Instruct.theirpersonnel in
all schools, to make purchases
within the county, as opposed to
buying through their cooperative
or outside the county. "Things are
tough in Gulf County right now,
and we should do as much busi-
ness as we possibly can with our
county merchants who pay local
taxes." he said.
The board members unani-
mously agreed with Redd and
went on record as supporting his
idea.
As a preliminary to the meet-
Sing, students Ma'rgaret Gibsoh
and Susan Elmer, along with
principal' Carolyn Rish, gave a
report on "What is Good, Better
and Best with Port St. Joe Middle
School."


This garage apartment on Helmet Street in Beacon Hill suffered major damage Sunday morning from
a tornado/water spout. -Emergency Management photo


LaNifia Stirs Up Gulf's Skies


A waterspout/tornado woke,
Beacon Hill residents early
Sunday morning as it damaged
property along and near Helmet
Street.
According to Gulf County
Emergency Management Director
" rLayt' Wells, the twister touched
down at approximately 4:30 a.m.
Sunday morning. The major dam-
age was to a garage/apartment on


Helmet Street. Several other adja-
cent homes also received minor
damage in that area.
Several privacy fences, a
porch, the gate to Beacon Hill
Park. the "Welcome to Gulf
County" sign, and power lines
were also- damaged or destroyevff
-:as a result of the accompanying
high winds.
Wells said it was ironic that


the incident occurred on the final
day of "Hazardous Weather
Awareness Week". He also pointed
out that during this same week
last year, Florida experienced its
first recorded F-4 tornado with
winds estimated at 300 miles per
hour ..
Fortunatel.- tfier6 ere 'no
injuries ,reported from Sunday's
tornadic activity,.


Mowrey, (Tallahassee), and
Fisherman's Federation leaders,
Ray Pringle and Fred Crum, were
shown measuring Moore's nets on
the lawn of the Gulf County
Courthouse in an effort to dispute
the Marine Patrol's, measure-
ments of 576 and 593 square feet,
per net.
Pringle and Crum's measure-
m, ents came in slightly above the
500 square foot limit at 503.1
and 506.9 square feet. But, Moore
produced witnesses verifying his
claim that Marine Patrol officers
had measured his nets before he,
began fishing them and o.k.'d
, them for use.
Moore's attorney also argued
that he was within the grace peri-
od of the new Restricted Species
License requirement when the
citations were issued. ..

FCPC Employees'
Suit is Cancelled
According to attorney J.
Patrick Floyd. a March 4th hear-
ing concerning holiday pay relat-
ing to a series of class action suits
filed by laid off Florida Coast
Paper Company employees
against the company has been
cancelled. .
Floyd said Florida Coast
Paper Company has filed a notice
for removal to federal court on the
holiday pay action.
It was reported in last week's
issue of The Star that Florida
Coast Paper Company had taken
the same action last week onan
emergency hearing seeking an
Injunction on the employee's
health insurance payment agree-
ment. : .- :
Floyd said, "The action
reflects further evidence of an
'attempt to delay and frustrate the
attempts of employees to collect
what has been earned by them."
According to Floyd, Florida
Coast Paper Company has also
taken the same action with the
vacation pay portion of the class
action suit.

Gulf County S.W.A.T. Members Attend


State-wide Teen Tobacco Summit


A.A.R.P. Delivers Warmth.
Sunrise of Bay St. Joseph Care Center was recently present-
ed with an armload of beautiful crochet and knit lap robes for
its wheelchair residents. They were all different designs and
vibrant colors. Gwen Knight, spokesperson for the group deliv-
ering the robes, reported that this will be an ongoing project of
A.A.R.P. members throughout the year.
In the photo above, standing from left, Tessa Goff, Cleo
Bess, and Gwen Knight surround a happy lap robe recipient, res-
ident Annie Collins.


This weekend's Teen Tobacco
Summit in Palm Harbor marked
the one-year anniversary of the
state's ambitious campaign to
reduce teen smoking. More than
1,000 teenagers representing
Florida's 67 counties gathered at
Innisbrook Resort with one mis-
sion: Defending their generation
from a lame addiction that kills.
The 13 students from Gulf County
had the opportunity to participate
in youth rallies, develop new
advertising to publicize S.W.A.T.'s
role in the anti-tobacco move-
ment, and attend sessions on how
to become more powerful advo-
cates in their fight against Big
Tobacco.
The opening session oh
Thursday. February 25th. focused
on S.W.A.T.'s project. "Reel
Truth", which began during last
summer's Truth Train. "Reel
Truth" took the entertainment
industry to task for irresponsibly
depicting tobacco use in films and


on television. There were celebrity
appearances by Antonio Sabato,
Jr., from Melrose Place and
General Hospital, Tommy Ford
from Martin and New York
Undercover, Montana and Jason
from MTV's The Real World, and
folk rock singer Leslie Nuchow,
who received national attention
for rejecting a Virginia Slims
sponsorship offer. On Saturday
night, February 27th, teen partic-
ipants were treated to a live con-
cert by the number one R & B
band. Divine, who performed their
hit single, "Lately.".
S.W.A.T.'s teen leaders led the
summit. Sessions provided partic-
ipants with the latest information
on tobacco possession laws, ces-
sation programs and the dangers
of second-hand smoke. Teens
were also given the chance to talk
with professional athletes and
coaches about how tobacco can
make an athlete lose his or her
edge. Power Up, a favorite session


among the teens, taught leader-
ship and teamwork by tackling a
ropes/obstacle course.
Several of the state's VIPs
attended the summit. Lt.
Governor Frank Brogan address-
ed the teens at breakfast and
Secretary of Health, Robert G.
Brooks, M.D., at lunch on Friday,
February 26th. Education
Commissioner Tom Gallagher and
Ed Chiles, youngest son of the
late Governor Lawton Chiles, were
on hand for the closing cere-
monies Sunday. February 28th.
Susan Medina, a PSJHS
S.W.A.T. member who has
appeared in some of the "truth"
commercials, summed it up, "The
goal of the summit is to inform
and empower. There is nothing
more threatening to Big Tobacco
than a teen who is armed with the
truth and is feeling pretty mad
about being lied to for so long."
The following students from


Gulf County schools from grades
seven through 12 attended the
summit: Rachel Bixler, Ranidi
Boddye, Stephanie Blackmop.
Adam White. Matt Kramer, Cedric
Lenox, Ryan Martin. Heather
Scott, Julia Comforter. Kayla
Jefferson, Joanna McClellan..Joe
Robinson, and. Susan Medina,,:
S.W.A.T. invites organizations
and individuals from -"the
community to attend the next
meeting of the Gulf County
Tobacco Free Partnership sched-
uled for March 16th at Port St.
Joe High School at 4:00 p.m. EST.
They will be accepting proposals
for projects related to tobacco pre-
vention. The Partnership is able

tion, contact ,the Tobacco

istration. The vehicle operator
proceeded to pull out an envelope
from the glove box, and open itIn
the officer's presence; as he did
Burch observed a small amount
of brownish .substance that
appeared to be cannabis.
Then, Touchet attempted to
hide the envelope. Officer Burch
asked the suspect if he could see
the envelope, and reluctantly it
was handed to him.
Burch gave the envelope to
PSJPD Officer Teeter, who per-
formed a field test on the sub-
stance to determine if it was
cannabis; the results were posi-
tive. Following this development,

bag tin the floorboard area of the

Upon further investigation, it
was learned that the bag con-
tained cash, small .plastic bags
and possibly additional drugs.
Consequently, Officer Burch
removed the passenger,
Schleichardt, from the vehicle; at
which time he became combative,
resisting Officer Burch -and
Teeter's attempts to place him
under arrest.

Last Saturday, February

was on patrol, travelling north on
the Overstreet Road (Highway
386) when he observed a black
pick-up truck crossing the center'
line and entering his lane of traf-'
fic.
"The deputy turned around,
pursued the vehicle, and stopped
it on Auger Avenue in the Beacon
Hill area. The driver, Thomas
Wayne Chavous. a 32 year. old
Port St. Joe resident, was conse-
quently arrested for driving while
his license was suspended and

LONG AWAITED DRUG BUST
'ALSO NABS REPEAT OFFENDER'
After several months of work,
officers from the Gulf and Bay,
County Sheriffs Offices arrested a
Gulf County drug dealer.
Gulf County narcotics officers
bad been Investigating MichaeL
Thomas, of Port St. Joe, for some
time for selling and trafficking in
cocaine. He had recently moved
from Port St. Joe to Bay County,
but was still allegedly transport-
ing Illegal drugs into the St. Joe
area.
The investigation ended this
week, when on Monday investiga-
tors from the two law enforcement
departments purchased S500
worth of crack cocaine from the
suspect. As a result of the buy,
Thomas was arrested afterward
near Rutherford High School.
Also arrested along with

tion of probation warrant also
hung over his head as he was
detained this week.
Following Monday's events.
Gathers was brought back to the
Gulf County, while Thomas was
lodged in the Bay County Jail.
"You would think by now
'someone should figure out that
Gathers needs to be in jail," Gulf
County Sheriff Frank McKeithen
said following Monday's arrests.
"This is the most frustrating
part of the job," McKeithen con-
tinued. "We work hundreds of
hours trying to put criminals in
jail, and in a matter of minutes
they're released."
Buit the sheriff added that his
department is going to continue
putting the offenders in jail, hop-
ing that one day society will get

Upset Over Billfishing
1 recently attended the meet-
ing of The National Marine
Fisheries Service that was giving
notice of the new regulations, and
restrictions for billfish fishing. I
am very upset with the proposed
amendments. I cannot see where
the new regulations' they want to
impose on us would be of any
benefit for our coastal areas.
Billfishing is a 40 billion dollar a
year sport. With ,the new" city
marina it could even have an
adverse affect on it as a business.
since;fishing will be the primary
draw for the marina.
People who billfish are not the
enemy in this case. Most of us,
have a great passion for the ocean.
and the sport. We'are dedicated in
the preservation of our ocean and
the fish in it. I know of no abuse
in thIs particular recreational
sport. Tag and release has
become a very popular event with
billfishing. Possibly longlining is
what needs to be addressed.
"We must now let the govern-
ment, Dept. of Commerce, know
how upset we are. The new rules
are not going to change a situa-
tion that really doesn't exist.

I once thought I had the dis-
tinct honor of being asked to be a
judge for a Chill Cook-Off,
Contest. But after a partial lip
transplant, a tongue that could
tolerate only oatmeal for a month,
and' for a case of gastritis that
had to be diagnosed on the
/ Richter scale, I would like to offer.
some recipes to avoid if you go to
St.: George Island's Chill Contest

Most hunters have put away
the guns for hunting season
1999. Still available, though, is a
bit; of squirrel and quail' hunting
time left, and spring turkey sea-

Freshwater f ihing is depend-
able on all lakts, rivers, and
S creeks. Bedding speckled-perch
and bass are in the shallows, and
area fishing camps report good
catches of both. The full moons
will bring .more to the beds, and

Shrimp under popping corks or

channels or :deep holes. Redflsh
art also plentiful, but only one

Saltwater: fishing Is rapidly
reaching .its springtime mode.-
Sheepshead and flounder re: oni

high number buoys:. and range.
markers are usually dependable:
this,, time of the year. Fiddler

Fish; for flounder around
nearshore structures. Minnows
on sliding rigs fished very slowly
around the edges should get you
a doormat or two.
Schools. of small Spanish
mackerel have already made their
annual appearance. The larger
ones should be around soon. As
the water temperatures reach the
70's, cobia will begin migrating
through our area.
The.red snapper are still the
most dependable fish nearshore.
Good. numbers are being caught
on the reefballs, the Virginia Reef
and the J.C. 'Reef. Cut baits are
both reliable and productive. *
Grouper fishing has slowed
down considerably nearshore.
STe favorite spots still hold good
numbers of small gags, but very
few keepers. Running offshore is''
your best bet if you want a few
grouper in the box.

avoid at all costs. Any cooker ;;

,,dressed as little devils should be,:
warning enough, .but there are
even more dangerous ones than
these lurking in those, innocent-
looking flowered crockpots.. For
some reason, the alliteraUve ones
can be the worst.
Andy's Authentic ,Aerial
Afterburner Chili is just one to
avoid. Fred's Famous Florida
Flaming Firehouse Chili should
be outlawed as should Susan,
Shannon, Sean, and Scott's
Sizzling Screaming Sensational

chill concoctions, try Helen's

fast-break offense and full-court
pressure defense to wear down
Eatonville Wymore and earn their
sixth consecutive bid to the Final

As The Star went to press this
week, the Sharks were headed to
The Lakeland Center on a mission

Rod Chambers (13) lays in two
points against Wymore.
"We played one of our best
defensive games that we hae
played all year," said Head Coach
Vernon Eppinette.
Port St. Joe got off to a slow
start Saturday night as their
offense sputtered, however It was
still enough to leave "the Dome"
with a 72-48 win over Wymore,
the District 8 runner-up. The
Tiger Sharks trailed 11-10 after.
one quarter of play. but sparked
in the second to outscore Wymore
25-18.
With less than 2:00 left in the
first half, Kedrick Larry drained a
three-pointer, then Travis Jenk-
ins picked off a pass. drove down
the court and dished the ball off
to Kyron Bailey, who laid It in for
a 33-26 Tiger Shark lead with :55
seconds left In the half.
Wymore made three free-
throws in the final minute to nar-
row Port St. Joe's lead to 33-29. '

second half, as they outscored a
tired Wyniore team 17-10 in the
third quarter, and 20-9 in the
fourth.
"We did a good job getting
them tired early," said Coach
Eppinette. "I was really impressed
with our focus, and our intensity
level was good throughout the
game.
"The most encouraging thing I
saw Saturday night, that will help
us in Lakeland, was the way we
played in the third quarter. We
had four starters on the bench
when we jumped from a nine to a
19 point lead in about three min-
utes. Rod Chambers played super
during that run."
Senior James Daniels led all
scorers with 17 points. Kedrick
Larry and Travis Jenkins each fol-
lo(ved with 12.


James Daniels (20) puts in two of his
game high 17 points against Wymore.

as it has been," Eppinette contin-
ued. "We're going to work hard for
the next couple of days on .our
offense to get ready for Thursday."

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, MARCH 4, 1999


Marina Scheduled for Completion Within Two Weeks, According to Engineer


State Gives Its
Permission to Expand
Dry Storage Capacity
If you have been wondering
when the city's bright, new mari-
na was going 1to be completed,
wonder no more. Supervising
engineer for e project, Bill


Kennedy, spoke to the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday, at its regular meet-
ing and said, 'The contractor will
be finished and off the job in less
than two weeks!"
Royal American Construction
Company will barely be through
with the original design when an
announcement will be verified by
the Department of Community


Affairs, approving the building of
40 more dry storage bins at the
marina.
DCA has already approved
the extra slips but has not offi-
cially notified the city of their
decision, as yet. The state permit-
ting agency has already reduced
the permit to writing and has it on
its circuitous route to the city at


the present time., Kennedy stated
that this would allow dry storage
facilities at the marina to be
increased from 39 boats to 79
craft, which will make the facility
more attractive to prospective
lessors.
Kennedy said the marina is
equipped with the best in alu-
nminum piling and its dry storage


shed. "We didn't skimp on these
and other permanent items so
they would stand the test of time
and resist storms. He said the
boat storage shed was rated to
withstand 115 mph hurricane
winds.
Covers are installed on most
of the small boat stalls, made of
heavy duty vinyl. "This material
isn't made to withstand storms
but covers made of the same
material have actually withstood
hurricane winds in this vicinity.
Some of the covers have been in
place for more than four years,"
he said.
The marina has 120 wet slips
for a variety of size boats, ranging
from bay skiffs to yachts. It also
boasts complete service for boats
to receive fuel, water and has
electrical and water outlets on
some of the mooring slips.
The marina will be available


for people who do not have boats,
also, as, complete facilities have
been constructed for fishing from
the dock. "It won't happen at the
outset, but there will be a hard
surface built around the piling at
dock's edge to accommodate
handicapped fishermen. You can
fish from the dockside while con-
fined to a wheelchair," Kennedy
said.'
Actually, the dock-side fish-
ing facilities are complete, ready
to use, but not for handicapped
fishermen, at this time.
"The dockside fishing accom-
modations are complete with
floodlights to allow for night fish-
ing," the speaker said.
Kennedy stated that the city
has done a good job of building
the facilities to provide a recre-
ational spot for everyone to have
access, as well as a quality, safe
place to moor boats.

&H E ROAD TO GLORY is a difficult one at best.
But it is a happy road for the child of God. Jesus has
given us fair warning, those who follow Him will face
many difficult trials. But the glorious prize at the end
of that road is worth it all-more than anything.
In II Timothy 3 He tells us, "In the last days,
perilous days will come. For men shall be lovers of
themselves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers,
disobedient, unthankful and unholy. Without natural
affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinet,
fierce, despisers of those that are good. Traitors,
heady, highminded, lovers of worldly pleasures more
than lovers of God."
Even many church members will be turning from
the Truth in the latter days. II Timothy 4:3-4: "The,
time will come when they will not endure sound
doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they. heap to
themselves teachers, having itching, ears. And they
shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be
turned unto fables." Every church has Its share of
unbelieving members-hypocrits.
Some let this sad fact discourage them from going
to services at God's House. The Scriptures tell us God
knows who belongs to Him. We should never be
discouraged by those who live only for this world.
Our' Heavenly Father tells us what we should do:
"Be strong in the Grace that Is in Christ Jesus." (II
Timothy 2:1) Jesus lives and He is coming back to
this earth one day, just before it will all be destroyed
with fervent heat. (II Peter 3:10) He will take those
who belong to Him to the home he is now preparing.
Yes, being a Christian in this sinful world is not
the easiest life there is. However, if Faith is focused
on the Son of God and the Promises of a Holy Father,
who can never fail, it will be an extremely happy life.
Christians need never be fearful of any adversary,
even physical death. Death is only a doorway into the
presence of our Heavenly Father. Absent from the
body, present with the Lord. (II Cor. 5:8).

Trusting God
''In Matthew 4:7 we find,
"You shall not tempt the Lord
your God.;' '
SWhen times get tough we
sometimes try to make a deal
with God. God does not make
deals. We need to trust in God.
Oliver F. Taylor God wants us to be faithful. This
Visitation Minister; Ftrst is not easy in hard times for
United Methodist Church not easy in hard times for
most people.
Jesus had been tempted by the devil in the
wilderness. Jesus'did not yield to temptation. He did
not take the easy way out. In this season of the year
pointing toward Easter, God's people need to be faith-
ful. We do not know what the future holds. These are
uncertain times for our area and our churches.
Many years ago I thought I was set for life with a
good job on the Miami Fire Department. God led to
another way of life. God blessed Laura ,and me when
we came to Gulf County and Beacon Hill. God is here,
and we can trust Him.

I reared from Federal Civil Service.at Fort
Ru,:l:er, Alabama. My wife and I moved to0
Panama City in 1992 and joined-TFCU at
II-,a time. I was raised in Miami, Florida arnd,
rec,.Ped a B.B.A. in Management from the
Le,-,, rity of Miami. My education also
,cih.des an MS. in Education front? Troy
iate University.
My military background was as an Army Aviator on. active duty
from 1959 to 1967. I served in assignments both tactical and
non-tactical. Various assignments followed in both the ARNG and
the USAR. I retired from the USAR in 1996.
My civil service career began as, a Flight Instructor at Fort Rucker,
Alabama. I transferred to the National Transportation Safety
Board in Washington, D.C. as an Air Safety Investigator. I
returned to the Army Aviation School as a Sqfety Specialist and
later transferred to the Army Safety Center as a Safety Manager.
Duties included managing and directing various safety courses
and managing major accident r. e.tiagai.:.n .-.hen require.d...
I am currently a Partner in C&S 'AssOicates, dsmall'iusiness
consulting firm that provides occupational's6fety and health
training to various government agencies'. Clients include the. '

more than adequate time to spend on credit union business and
provide the representation the membership requires and deserves. -

The


Boyd


Report

By: Rep. Allen Boyd


Establishing Fiscal Priorities


As Congress launches into the
106th Session, one of the honest
debates is on how to spend the
budget surplus. This discussion is
critical to our nation because this
year's budgetary process will either
lead Congress on its current
course of fiscal discipline or return
the federal government to the bad
habit of deficit spending.
Many of you have heard me.
'discuss the subject of fiscal'
responsibility, but I cannot stress
enough how important Congress'
: budgetary decisions are to each.,
'and every one of us.
The legislative action Congt-ess
takes today will impact not. only
the stability of our economy, but
',the future of our children. These
'decisions will determine whether,
o' ur young people will be burdened
'by a federal debt. and whether they
will benefit from the Social
Security program our seniors cur--
rently enjoy.
In addressing this issue. we
must first understand the nature
'"of the projected budget surplus.
Congress does not use the stan-
dard accounting practices that you
and I might use when calculating
our household budget for the year.
As a result, the federal govern-
ment's budget surplus is not as
straightforward as one might
expect.
.The majority of the budget sur-
plus, a projected 4.8 trillion dollars
oover 15 years is comprised of sur-
; uses in our nation's Social
Secunty Trust Fund. Because the
trust fund is figured Into annual
budgetary calculations, any sur-
plus in the trust fund appears as a
net gain for the overall budget,
even though that money is already
,committed to future retirees.
As many of you know. the baby
boomer workforce has been paying
Social Security taxes into the trust
fund at a much greater rate than
today's senior citizens have been
withdrawing from the fund. As a
result, a large surplus has devel-
oped. ,
Sface ,Lhe.-. early 198ps,
C~ congress h "'borrowed from" the
Social Secul.'' rust Fund surplus
to pay for additional government
spending. This surplus. however,
(* will soon be needed to pay for the
baby boomers' retirement. Now
that we have cut spending and the
economy is strong. Congress' first
priority should be to pay back what
..the government owes to the Social
Security Trust Fund.


Many of my ,colleagues in
Congress are willing to commit a
portion of the projected surplus to
Social Sectirity; but still want to
use the remaining ftnds for across
the board tax cuts. I strongly
believe the American people would
benefit more if the federal govern-
ment made paying down the feder-
al debt its next pnoritvy.
Currently the federal debt is
5.6 trillion dollars and interest
payments on the debt alone are 12
percent of the total budget. The
money that the U.S. pays out each
year in interest is money that will
never put one police officer on the
street, train one new soldier in the
field, put one teacher in the class-
room. or pave one new road.
Economists all agree that pay-
',ing down the federal debt will have,
a positive long term effect on our
economy. Every dollar of 'debt we
pay off will free up another dollar
which had been committed to.
interest payments.
By reducing our debt burden
we will gain lower interest rates on
credit cards, car loans and home
loans, and more importantly. we
will guarantee that our children
will not be saddled with a future of
massive federal deficits and record
levels of debt.
To pass an across the board
tax cut at this time would be
squandering a golden opportunity.
Today the economy is strong, and
the nation can afford to pay off
some of its lenders; tomorrow's
economic forecasts might not be so
optimistic, and the federal govern-
ment will have missed its chance.
Just like any American-citizen
planning a monthly budget,
Congress must establish spending
priorities, and these priorities
should be set not by politics, or
popularity, but by sound fiscal
principles. This is not to say we
must commit even single surplus
dollar only to these two priorities;
there will always be- other areas of
need that Congress must have the.
lflembilitv to address.
tAmong Iother issues, Congress.
should reevaluate its commitment
to our military personnel. and to"
Amencan farmers who are strug-
gling despite our overall economic
prosperity. However, today
Congress should step up to the
plate and establish the right prior-
ities to guide our nation down the
path of fiscal responsibility-the
path that will strengthen America
and our economy.
