Mid-Day Mishap Sent Three for Medical Care
Just at the noon hour began this past Tuesday (March 30th), Port St. Joe Police Department
Officers Holloway and Hersey were dispatched to a crash with injuries at the intersection of
Highway 98 and First Street.
During the investigation of the crash, it was discovered that two vehicles were involved. The
first, driven by Michael Engene Cline, of South Carolina, was crossing the highway on First
Street, headed west. At the same time, the second, driven by Melisa Ann Ash, of Port St. Joe, was
headed south on Highway 98. As Cline, operating a light blue Ford van, proceeded across the
highway it was struck in the right side door by Ash. The impact of the crash spun the van around
so it was headed in the opposite direction.
The driver and two passengers of the car were taken to Gulf Pines Hospital by ambulance,
where they were treated and released. Charges are pending upon completion of investigation.


Comes In

At $400,000

Under Money

Available
It's finished! One year and
one month after receiving bids for'
the construction of a 159 slip
(now a 199 slip) manna In Port St.
Joe, construction crews finished
the project late last week, accord-
lrig to Preble-Rish engineer Bill
.Kennedy.
During that same'time span,
the city saw the project grow from .
a 159 slip marina-120 wet slips
and 39 dry slips-to 199 slips.
The Florida Department 'of
Community Affairs just recently
approved a "Bonding Letter'allow-
ing the expansion of the dry slip
facilities by 40 boats.
The total cost of the marina is
expected to come in just under
$3.3 million dollars when all the
miscellaneous expenses are :tal-
lied. That figure comes in at over
$200,000 less than the city's
engineers' (Preble-Rish. Inc.,
Consulting Engineers) estimated
cost of S3.5 million to construct
the manna, and nearly S400.000
less than available construction
money.
Construction money came
from a S2.5 million RDA low inter-
est loan. S962.350 EDA grant
(S287,350 of which is matching
city funds), and 8200.000 in
grant funds acquired by the Gulf
County Chamber of Commerce-
for a total of S3.662.350.
Royal American Construction
Company was the contractor for
construction of the marina after
successfully entering a low bid of
approximately S2.9 million in
. February, 1998..Engineeriqg,,per-
miting and environmental study
fees cost 8162.000 and other mis-
cellaneous fees including legals,
loan bonding, advertising, binding
letter fees are expected to cost
approximately 100,000.
Who's Going To Operate?
Since before construction on
the marina began, city commis-
sioners have envisioned leasing
out the operation of the facility,
hoping to negotiate a deal with a
lessor that would pay for the loan
payments, and hopefully generate
revenue for the city to boot.
The board was stunned when
no bids for proposalto opera atethe
marina were received in January.
Several companies did express an
Interest in negotiating for a con-
tract to operate the marina,

Vote Quality

THE BOOKS ARE OPEN ONCE again to register candidates
for an election; this time. it is the Port St. Joe municipal election.
The city just happens to be selecting a mayor and two commis-
sioners, or rather, the voters have the job of selecting.
With the election, comes the opportunity for us to once again
urge you to vote responsibly. rather than voting by popularity, and
spell out the reasons why you should. We'll spell out only two rea-
sons, but these two reasons are prime examples of why one
should always cast his vote In favor of capability.
We're not saying you haven't in the past, but we're simply
reminding you, at this election time, of the need to select your
candidates, based on qualifications. We're not even saying our
present public servants are or are not qualified to serve. We're reit-,
erating the fact that one should keep this criteria uppermost in
his mind every time he goes to cast a ballot.
REASON NUMBER ONE: No one will argue with the fact that
Port St. Joe faces some tough times ahead. If the past 'nine
months haven't convinced you of that fact already, you have, a
rude awakening staring you in the face. Along with these tough
times comes a need for imaginative solutions. We. need to select
our candidates, based on a conviction that he/she is able to get
the most out of our limited assets these days.
Many opportunities to make things better for our people come
along only once in a lifetime. Certainly, they are not beating our
door down, begging,for.tthe opportunity to make life better for us.
We need to grasp them thefirst time they are offered arid squeeze
the most out of them that can be obtained. ,
REASON NUMBER TWO: More than likely, our commission-
ers will place a question on the ballot asking for permission to play
with our ad valorem tax base in favor of more jobs for our people.
This won't mean an automatic forgiveness of all taxes for such a
firm, but will give our commissioners the right to reduce or even
forgive-for a period of time-all taxes. Or, they may not forgive a
red cent. It all depends on the firm they are trying to attract. V
When we elect commissioners, and give them this kind of
power, they definitely neqd to have our future. firmly in mind and
not play favorites with our assets.
We understand the concerns of a recent letter writer to these
pages, opposing such a measure simply because it might cost him
more in taxes. But, if we elect the proper persons to make the
decisions concerning any tax relief, we need not have any cause
for compunctions.



ANRR Long Lived

JUDGE HESS GAVE OUT THE only, reasonable ruling one
could give last week when he ruled in favor of the Apalachicola
Northern Railroad in the case of its dispute with Seminole
Electric and its coal-hauling contract. If the railroad had failed to
perform at some time or other, there may be a valid reason to ter-
minate the contract before it had run. its course, but1, of ourss.
'there'wasn't.,-" "' ; .
The railroad had operated for many years without a coal con-
tract, or anything resembling a coal contract. It has lost cus-
tomers before. Still, it continues to operate. We're confident it will
continue to do so, even if it never hauls another ounce of coal.
But, it's the principle of the thing, in addition to the jobs it cost
several of our residents.
THE LINE HAS OPERATED-though not profitably all the
time-for nearly a century. It has hauled naval stores and lum-
ber, as well as seafood for much of that time. All of these are dis-
continued cargos, just like the coal. At times, these cargos were
the backbone of its business. When 'they stopped, the line went
bankrupt for a time, .but another cargo came along to make it
profitable once agaiii.
The coal contract was plus business when it came along. The
line was operating briskly and riiakirig money, prior to the coal
contract. It is our information that it was one of the most prof-
itable short line operations in the nation-BEFORE THE COAL
CONTRACT. It can be once again.
True, the paper mill accounted for most of the freight handled
by the line, but the paper mill will not be closed forever.
The ANRR has been a backbone for the community for a long
time.' It has been the 'attraction whidli has brought much of'6ifur
industry.'


Hunker Down With Kes


Peter Versus Peter


I've been pondering this week '
on the connection between rabbits
and Jesus. Easter is without ,
doubt the most important celebra- '
tion on the Christian calendar. If
you don't understand the signifi-
cance of a risen, living Savior.
please come to see -pme.
If you can explain how rabbits
get painted up, spruced up', priced [7
up and placed in the center of this
special season, please come to 'see
me.
I could understand lambs., I
could even see donkeys here. And ...
a dove would seem to make perfect
sense .. but rabbits?
I've been perusing through
Matthew, Mark, Luke and' some~of
the others and I haven't scared,,p
many rabbits,, They've broken -,-
bread, they pulled a little corn and
Jesus once stretched a few loaves :
and a handful of fish Into a fair
sized meal but if they enjoyed
rabbit stew, it must be, over in the.
-2nd chapter of Mathais.


Maybe some monk back In the
twvelfth century got his tares and
hares mixed up.
A bunny rabbit no less!
I sat my boys down years ago
to explain the beauty,. the joy. the
everlasting truth of this most spe-
cial week. I naturally began with
Daniel so they could understand
the timing, I covered the ride into,
town, the last meal. 'the betrayal,
the cup He wouldn't refuse, Peter's
denial, that mean dog Barabbas
that wasn't worth saving, the last
brutal walk down the Via
Dolorosa- '
Jesse raised liis hand. "Daddy,
when do you get to that other
Peter, the one with the cotton tail.

We'd better be careful how we
discuss, handle, advertise and cel-
ebrate this week . Someone,

man's got to draw the line some-

confusion as to which Peter we

to preach or be dogmatic. "Son.
why would you think rabbits

Why didn't I become a monk!
"And. Dad. are we putting' on-

eggs. But I didn't want them to

T-ball was a whole different

that has changed. The boys catch
one-handed., they throw, each

Dear Wesley:
This is in response to a recent
neivs article which appeared in
the Panama City News Herald on
t:fie Sunrise Care and Rehab
,C6nter in Port St. Joe.
Our mother is a resident in
'this facility and all five of her chil-
dren believe that the coverage
lacked balance. As is so often the
case in such "expose-type" jour-
nalism, the story represented only
the views of those who are dissat-
isfied with the nursing home.
i. .-':-O family .members. isit,the
.ali.;t'ery .day and we are well-
rpf4ttsfied with-thecare given our
rimother. If thIr were hot the case.
we most certainly would not leave
her there.
, While there may be manage-
ment and administrative difficul-
ties at the Center and its parent
company, it has been our obser-
vation that patient care is still
theirr top priority and, let's face it,
the needs of the residents are so
great and so diversified that it is
virtually impossible to take care of
all their needs as quickly as they
would like to have it done.
The task of the nursing staff
'is difficult at best, and in order to
provide the best care, the families
?.of the residents must work with
the staff to promote a safe and
healthy environment.
There have been and will con-
Ltinue to be situations where mis-
takes are made or we wish things
'might have been done differently.
but it has lbeen our experience
that the staff truly has the best
interests of the patients at heart
and that in the final analysis is
what really counts.
Sincerely,
/s/ B. Walter Wilder
for Louise Wilder Parker
_,Betty Wilder Fleming
Irene Wilder Ramsey
-. Pat Wilder Hidalgo .

During a special workshop
session of the Port St. Joe City.
Commission Tuesday afternoon,
commissioners took a long hard
look at what plans and steps need
to be taken in the future opera-
tion of the city's giant (34 million


gallons/day capacity) wastewater
treatment plant.
Plant Manager Larry McArdle
and Melvin E. Lehman. principal
consultant with ALA Environ-
mental, Inc., were present at the
meeting to provide the board with

economic crisis that exists.
W, :.When contacted Wednesday
morning. Leffert said, "We're high-
ly appreciauve of the efforts of
'Senator .Bob Graham and
Congressman Allen Boyd's offices,
as well as all the other parties
who were instrumental in making
this happen, I'm sure this was
also the results of the prayers
offered by many people of our
community."
The city's police department
budget is just over S800.000 per
year, the vast majority of which
goes toward the salaries of the 12
active officers on the force.
Two of those officers are
already under the three year
C.O.P.S. program. and with the
inclusion of 10 more C.O.P.S.
grant positions, the force would
be 1000u financed through the
,program.
"This will hopefully give the'
' community an opportunity to
reinvest its economy, but the
challenge is still in front of us."
Leffert commented on' the three
year funding cycle.
"Community policing makes a
difference, in the lives of 'all'
Floridians." said Graham. "This


grant money will further strength-
en the Port. St._ ,Joe Police
Department s ability to fight
crime."
The funding is part of the lat-
est round of C.O.P.S. grant
;awards. under the Universal
Hiring Program. The C.O.P.S. pro-
gram was established under the
Violent Crime and Law Enforce-
ment Act of 1994.
Senator Graham has gained
first-hand knowledge of the bene-
fits that community policing can
pro\vde through his workday pro-
gram. He has spent several of his
344 workdays as a community
police officer in Port St. Lucie,
Jacksonville. Orlando '.'and
Tampa.
All of the' officers hired with
,C.O.P.S. grants are used in
community policing, a strategy
that uses partnerships between
law enforcement officers and the
people they serve to solve crime
problems.
C.O.P.S. grants will be made
for up to 75 percent of the total
salary and benefits of each new
officer over three years. up to a
maximum of $75,000 per officer.
The remainder is paid out of state
or local funds. '-

Uon centered around the expense
of operating the plant without
Florida Coast Paper Company
(should the mill not re-open),
maintaining industrial waste per-
mits. and the feasibility of adding
a domestic "side-stream"' ad-
ivanced water treatment facility to
the site. ,
The board pointed out its
desires to become a regional col-
lection and treatment site for
domestic and industrial waste-
water.
Lehman explained that the
- cit ,would ,have to make alter-
ations in.its treatment facility in
-order to handle a large quantity of
domestic waste. He stated that
the most economically feasible
way to accomplish those goals
would probably be to separate the
: domestic waste from the indusLri-
!al waste by building a domestic
treatment facility adjacent to the
city currently operating plant.

Strides Toward Better Education
Loyde and Son Construction Company is ahead of schedule on the $4.5 million construction and ren-
ovation project at Port St. Joe Elementary School. Twenty-four new classrooms are presently being con-
structed in the rear of the present school site. The school's kindergarten r6oms and other classrooms are
also being remodeled.
According to Gulf County School Board finance clerk Sissy Worley, the contractor expects to be fin-
ished with the classroom additions by May 15th.
During the summer months, the old classroom area located between the two main buildings will be


including the St. Joe Company.
On March 2nd, Chris Hine,
Vice President of Commercial/
Industrial Development for St.
Joe Company, outlined a propos-
al to lease and operate the marina
to the board.

Basically, the terms included
leasing and operating the marina
for the amount of the city's bond
payment on the $2.5 million RDA
construction loan. plus an addi-
tional $21,000 per year for
administrative costs paid to the
city.
St. Joe proposed to make
approximately $200,000 in
improvements to the marina at its
expense in the 10 year "synthetic
lease" proposal. At the end of the
lease, period, the two parties
would (1) renegotiate the lease; (2),
renew the lease; or (3) St.. Joe
:, would propose to purchase the
marina.
City Attorney Billy Joe Rish
and Clerk Pauline Pendarvis said
contact has been made with St.!
Joe Company since -the proposal
was 'made. :Rish explained that
several questions needed to be
addressed, before the board held
a workshop to further review the
proposal.
A final draft of St. Joe's pro-
posal is expected to be forwarded
to the city within the next few
days. Commissioners will be eval-
uating the proposal once it's
received.
A final decision to accept or
reject St. Joe's proposal will prob-
ably be made following discus-
sions and questions during a reg-
ular board meeting within the
next few weeks.

Proceeds will also be used to sat-
isfy a much as possible of the lien
of personal property taxes for
1998 and 1999 taxes on January
first of each: such year. : -.
Proceeds from the sale would
only be used to satisfy the lien on
personal property taxes.
As repeated in last week's
issue of The Star Taylor said she
felt the steps taken were in the
best interest of the citizens of Gulf
County. "I'd much rather them
come in and pay this tax, than
have to offer the personal proper-
ty for sale," she said.
Rumors have spread through
the community for several months
that personal property was being
removed from the mill.
The proceedings only affect
tangible personal property. which
includes content and machinery.
The mill's real property (land and
buildings) are not affected.
The mill's 1998 personal
property taxes, totalling almost $4
million, have not been paid to date
either, and will be'delinquent as of
April 1 of this year.


Joe Beach. Cape San Bias. and
other areas.
Lehman said there were grant
funds and low interest loans that
could help with the expense of
adding an. advanced wastewater
treatment plant at the site, but
the board would need to make
application for those funds.
The commission's strategy
appears to be to make every effort
to protect itsindustrial waste-
water permits. while developing a
plan to keep wastewater treat-.
ment costs affordable, maintain
its, major industrial customer:'
(Arizona Chemical), and make
plans to expand its domestic
wastewater capacity.
The' board will probably con-
sider an application for grant
funds and low interest loans for
the project in the near future.

As part of the event, national
comedic motivational speaker
Larry Veal--considered one of the
most innovative, exciting, and
,inspiring youth speakers in the
country--delivered a powerful, in-
your-face message to Gulf County
high school and middle school
students.
As a high school freshman,
Veal was a member of a gang, sus-
pended 18 times, and received all
F's. By his senior year, he was an
honor roll student and recipient
of numerous awards. After gradu-
ating from college with degrees in
criminology and drama, Veal took
to the streets to help at-risk youth
to change their lives.
Today, he is a dynamic moti-
vational speaker as well as televi-
sion and rilm personality. Veal is
appearing in the upcoming movie
"Instinct" with Anthony Hopkins
and Cuba Gooding, Jr., and
"Walking Across Egypt" with
Jonathon Taylor Thomas.
Veal's hard-hitting presenta-
Lion utilized music4 comedy, and
dramatic monologues to deliver
the message to Gulf County stu-
dents to "rise up" above doing
things that are criminal, violent,
or harmful to them.
As part of the program, Gulf

Beach Baptist Chapel Special Easter Services


"A Criminal's Death"
by Jud Waldrop, Pastor, Highland View Baptist Church
"Christ died for our sins." How proudly we say it, and yet how
poorly we understand it. Jesus not only died for our sins, He did so
in one of the most .shameful and painful ways known to mankind. He
was crucified. To gain a proper understanding of His death we must
166k at how He died.
The Phoenicians and Persians used crucifixion as a means of
execution a thousand years before Jesus was born. Crucifixion was
such a horrible, shameful death that rarely was aRoman;citizen exe-
cuted in this manner. Crucifixion was reserved for revolutionaries,
slaves, and the worst of criminals. Mass crucifixions were not
uncommon. .,
When the Romans put down a Jewish rebellion in A.D. 7, they
crucified 2,000 Jews in Jerusalem. With the fall of Jerusalem in A.D.
70, the Romans crucified 500 Jews a day for months. It is said that
not a tree was left standing for miles around Jerusalem. All had been
cut and used to crucify Jews. : i ',
In crucifixion's earliest form, the victim was bound to the top of
a stake; by his hands and left to hang there till he died. Later a cross
member was added, and the victim was el other nailed to the cross with
large spikes, being driven through his hands and feet, or he was
lashed to the crosd with ropes. ... ,.
Usually the victim was-, placed 'in the
center of four Roman soldiers and led along
Sa public road bythe longest, .route to the
place of crucifixion. Often victims were cru-
clfied In public squares or beside mainrroads
so that the spectacle would be seen by large
numbers of people and serve as a warning to
,'those who passed by.
d. Matthew 27.39-40 states that Jesus was
crucified on a main road;: . 'those who
., passed by blasphemed Him .'.
pe The victim was forced to carry the cross
beam of his cross. Usually 'the upright
S already wasin place at the site of execution.
/ Apparently Jesus was too weak from the
'",-- beating, sleeplessness, and the lack of food
.- to,;tca:nry His cross all the way, so Simon of
Cyrene was given that task-by the Roman soldiers (Nlatt. 27:32).
Victims of crucifixion usually were stripped naked in order to
bring even more shame and embarrassment.. A sign was carried
either around the neck of the victim, or by an executioner, and placed
above th,e head of the victim on the cross announcing the name and
charges.'
No vital organs were damaged by crucifxion, and the victims sel-
dom died in less than 36 hours. Some lasted for several days. Usually
Sthe crucified lost control of bowel and bladder functions, thus adding
to the. shame.. ... ...
Victims were helpless against the weather and insects which bit
them and crawled over their wounds. The blistering sun added its
torture as well. After days of hanging on the cross, the victims died
of exposure, hunger; thirst, fever, trauma, and tetanus. If the
Romans wanted to quicken the death of a victim they would break
their legs with a hammer or rod.
I The strain of the body's weight on the victim's arms often pulled
the shoulders from their sockets and stretched the muscles across,
the chest to the point of suffocation. .
No human being; and especially the Son of God, should have to
go through such a torturous death. Yet, all the Biblical records testi-
fy that Jesus did just that. Why? What would compel the Son of God
to suffer through a death such as this, and willingly at that?,
Romans 5:8 says, "God commendeth His love toward us, in that,
while we were yvet sinners. Christ qied for us. It was God's love for sin-,
fuq man and His cd)eire olr recpciliation with man that compelled
*fiin to send His Son'to' The brds's. This was the only way to provide
that avenuefdf forgiTness and reconciliation." '
He proved His love for us. What are we doing to prove our love for,
Him? All He asks for is our love and obedience. Is that too much to
ask in light of what He has done for us?
Will we trust Him, love Him, and serve Him, or will we turn away.
in unbelief and indifference?
It will not be well on the day of judgment for those who ignore the,
sacrifice God has made to save them from their sins. Jesus died a
criminal's death to set us free. And when He sets us free we are free

do you seek the living among the
dead?" God raised Jesus from
the dead, and He is"our living'

mortality. 'When He was human He did die, but God
restored Him to his divinity. Therefore, I believe in God
who is not limited by humanity. .
On Easter, we proclaim our faith ii the living God

Outdoors in the


by Gene Childs
Florida Outdoor %Wnters' associationn


It looked like an invasion of
yellow and white birds on the
quiet neighborhood streets of
,.Mexico Beach this week. They
flapped and twirled in the gusty
breezes as they hunkered down
in the dirt one by one in every dri-
veway. Not quite as' slfister -ai-
"The Birds": it was. in fact, Ma
Bell. She had reached out and
touched us all.
Freshwater fishing just con-
tinues to improve. Joe Hasty from
Shiner Diner on the Dead Lakes
says bass fishing is just excellent.
Limits of bass are being caught
dally with many in the four and
five pound range.
Topwaters and spinnerbaits
are the best choices in artificials.
There's plenty of water in the
lakes and the bass are up in the
'shallows off the main channels.
The crappie are biting good
throughout the area. Upstream
on the Wetappo, anglers this
,.weekend caught nice-sized specs
along reeds and deadfalls.
Minnows are still the best bet.
Bay fishing is dominated by
the trout. Around Black's Island
is hot right now on moving tides.
Topwaters of all kinds are work-
ing early and late. The hot new
color is Electric Chicken for jigs.
.As the shrimp move .to the edges
,of the flats and darken some, I
bet the next; color will be New
Penny. Area marinas are trying to
keep in stock the fastest lures.
b Along the beaches, boats are
beginning to pick up Spanish
'mackerel. They're still spotty, but
every day more reports are in.
Hurricane Cut and around Cape
St. Joe Peninsula have been the
early producers. The limits are 10
per person per day with a 12-inch
minimum.
Serious cobia hunters are re-


stringing their spinners and
checking out their towers. A few
more degrees and a few more-
days should have the first waves
of ling showing up.
Snapper fishing continues to
slow nearshore and improve off-
shfiore. The grouper seem to have
followed suit. Catches of both are
still being made. but you have to
work a bit more and stop at a few
more spots to find them.
Offshore boats are picking up
some nice amberacks along with
snapper and grouper. These
amberjacks are one of the
strongest fish in the ocean and
catching a limit is extremely
exciting, but definitely hard work.
These fish have shoulders.
Spring is the most exciting
* time for both freshwater and salt-
water anglers. Everything seems
to come alive as those water tem-
peratures rise. Take advantage of
this annual event and get out on
the water.
The birds that lapped and
shed "feathers" up and down the
streets like multi-colored tumble-
weeds in an old western movie
were not birds at all. but rather
telephone books. I'm sure that
economics and logistics of deliv-
ery dictated this rather flighty0
arrangement.
Since many of the residences
along the beaches are only used
periodically throughout the year,
many of the bird/books will have
a prolonged nesting period. Kind
of flies in your face; I guess some-
one higher up in the pecking
order of the company made this
decision.
Next year when Ma Bell
reaches out and touches us,
maybe she'll reach out a little far-,
ther-like to the porch.

If you think it's .just about
impossible for a dentist to see
all the areas in your mouth
where decay may lurk or hide
out without an x-ray, think
again. One of his newest tools
is fiber optics.
Using a flexible instrument,
the dentist .can direct a high-
intensity light anywhere in your
mouth. This light illuminates
the teeth so well that often he
does not need to take x-rays of
suspect areas. This high-inten-
sity light has proved especially
helpful in examining the backs
of your teeth and the areas
between teeth.
Tooth decay is insidious.

Gulf/Franklin Center Communications Graduates
Second Special Course Scheduled to Begin Monday, April 5th


The Gulf/Franklin Center recently presented cer-
tificates to its first Introduction to Communications
course graduates in ceremonies held at the Gulf
:Coast Community College center. The course of study
*teaches the .basic skills involved in lineman and'
installer work for telephone, cable and supporting
companies. The students were treated to refresh-
ments following the presentations.
Introduction to Communications is a seven-week,
'280 clock-hour training program, conducted Monday
-through Friday, from, 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. These grad-
uates began classes on February 1st and concluded'
March 19th.
A second class will begin on April 5th and contin-
:ue until May 19th. You must pass the TABE test with
'12.0 in math, language and reading skills before
-enrolling. Fees for the course are. paid for certified
students. Upon completion students receive a
Certificate of Achievement and transcript.


-The telecommunications industry, which
includes telephone, cable, and supporting construc-
tion companies, is enjoying a "boom" in business due
to the Information explosion and recent technology
breakthroughs .
The marketing potential for telecommunications
business is limited only by availability to their cus-
tomers. Fax, phone, computer modems, digital, wire-
less, fiber--all these systems must be built and
maintained. The demand for trained personnel due to
expansion is expected to increase well into the next
century.
Students who participate in the communications
course are schooled in first aid/CPR, safety: lineman
safety; hardware/tools of the trade; traffic control:
pole climbing; anchoring/guying; cornering, cable
rolling, expansion; installation, pedestal, riser pole;
in-ground construction; splicing and activation;
introduction to fiber technology; and employability
skills.

counselors will be welcome addi-
tions to the registration tables.

ment date and time for each stu-
dent.

Collections Show
26.76% Climb
Over '98 Figures

The Mexico Beach Com-
munity DevelopmentCouncil, Inc.
(MBCDC) received a much await-
ed bed. tax collection update for
the month of February from the
Bay County Finance Office on
Wednesday,. March 24th. To their
delight and surprise, collections
were up 26.763. over figures from
February 1998.
Following, what turned out to
be an over 9% increase in collec-
tions for the month of January, J.
Pati-rick Howard. President/CEO
of the MBCDC, along with a host
of board members and business
*I owners, are very excited at the
beginning tourism trend for the
calendar year 1999. Howard says
he will reserve his opinions
regarding trends until he sees the'
numbers for March.
These numbers won't be.
available until after April 20th, at
which time the MBCDC. Howard
and the majority of the com-
munity of Mexico Beach should
,be extremely busy pushing into
the third week of their 21 day Ling
(cobla) Fishing Tournament.
"The community response to
the revival of this event has been
tremendous so far," says Howard,
"But the real test is if we can get
potential visitors excited enough
to Join us for their vacations."
The Ling Tournament, being
coordinated through joint efforts
of the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef
Association (MBARA) and the.
MBCDC, will begin April 10th and
conclude May 1st. Under the
direction of Dana Dement, a host
of festivities will be forthcoming.
for a grand family-oriented Ling
Festival on May 1st. "like it used
to be."
Funding To Improve Community
Promotions aren't the only.
directives the MBCDC is taking
on. Community enhancement
projects for both the residents
and the visitors are already
underway.
Contracts with the City of
Mexico Beach, which expend bed


tax revenues to the specific city,
projects of beach cleaning and
canal dredging were executed in
the fourth quarter of 1998, and
will in total subsidize the city's
budget by $40,000.
Maintenance of the older
palm trees on. the east end of
Mexico Beach along with con-
struction of a major handicap
accessible dune walkover are pro-
jects that will be initiated,
through the MBCDC, in April in
Mexico Beach.
When asked what he attribut-
es the "initial" bed tax increases
to over last year's figures, Hqward
replied, "I believe the answer has


two parts; the first is that we have
something here (quiet, uncrowded
beaches) that can be found in few
other places. We are marketing
that trait through our Internet
sight, our 40 page full-color visi-
tor's guide, media blitzes and
mass mailings as 'the Quiet
Alternative.'
"Secondly, the local business-
es and.the community at large are
supporting our efforts to promote
le.exico Beach in a positive man-
ner. If you have a.team promoting
in the same direction, it's much
more effective than one small
office trying the same," he con-
cluded.


Core Tells Rotary of

South American Trip


"I wouldn't recommend my-
most recent trip to anybody. but I
would go again if I had the oppor-
tunity," George Core told the
Rotary Club last Thursday, as he
prepared to narrate his experi-
ences on a recent; tour made by
him and his wife, Alice, to South
America.
The tour, a combination of air
travel to get there, and a ship
cruise which took them around
Cape Horn, stopping off along the
way, kept the Cores on the "go' for
about 20 days.
They flew in to Rio de Janiero,
Brazil. and spent some time
there, "seeing the things a tourist
is expected to see while in Rio;
Sugar Loaf Mountain and the
Christ the Redeemer statue." he
said.
Sugar Loaf Mountain is actu-
ally a small mountain peak which
sits out in the bay in Rio harbor
and is accessible only by cable
car. It offers a stupendous view of
the bay and harbor.
The Cores.- visited the
Falklands Islands, among other
stops. while on their trip. "There
isn't a single tree on the
Falklands and the wind blows
hard all the time. There were six
small trees which a British gover-
nor of years past, brought over
from England to plant around his
home." Core said. "I don't know


why the. boat stopped there
because there was nothing to
see," he continued.
Core said he was impressed
by the sight of Buenos Aires,
Argentina. said to be the most
beautiful city in the world. He
said Buenos Aires had extremely
wide boulevards, lined with trees
and shrubbery and "numbers of
beautiful parks".
Their boat also stopped at
Santiago. Chile. The city rises up
on each side of the U-shaped har-
bor for three miles in elevation. It,
too, is a beautiful ,city to visit.
Each, of the cities, the bbat
stopped at had numerous bus
tours for them to take and enjoy.
"-The most enjoyable part of
the trip was sailing through the
numerous islands which made up
the Cape Hope tour. "Some of the
channels we sailed through had
clearance of less than the dis-
tance of a baseball thrown from
each side of the ship and the
country was all lush green and
beautifultrees," he said.
Guests of the club were John
Frothingham o f Champlaign, IlI.,
Bob Bolduc of Garden City, Mich..
and Jerry Gaskin of
Wewahi tchka.

Bringing Home the Gold
A team of seven students representing Wewahitchka Elementary School (WES) competed in the
Odyssey of the Mind (OM) Capital Region competition on Saturday, March 13th at Chipley High
School. The Odyssey of the Mind school program challenges children to apply their imaginations
and their ingenuity to solve problems. OM is a program in which children develop creativity, work
through challenges and build respect for one another in an environment where cooperation, car-
ing and the process are valued more than winning. '
The WES team, coached by Lori Price, earned the highest cumulative score for the three com-
petition elements in their division. Each team member was awarded a gold medal and a certifti
cate. The WES team will compete at the state tournament held at the University of Southern
Florida in Tampa. That competition is scheduled for April 10th.
Odyssey of the Mind team members, pictured from left to right,: are Daryl Knee, Nathan'
Grimes, Sheiletta Fisher, Jade Gaskin, Kody Bidweil, Suzanna Whitfield, and Hali Price.

Anytime we can hit-reach-
achieve 100% in anything we like
to point it out. So when our sev-
enth grade had 100% attendance
for both days of their recent CTBS
testing, itt called for some special
notice. 100% means no time
wasted taking make-up exams.
Students can get back to class
work!
This Thursday will be a full
day of classes, in case someone
has rumored. otherwise. Friday
and Monday are holidays, making,
the Easter weekend a four day
affair (helpful if you have to travel
to locate your bunny!).
The WHS Academic Excel-
lence Banquet has been sched-
uled for April 30. probably at 6:30
p.m. There is a softball final that
day that should be over by 5:30
p.m.. giving any students involved
in both time to shower and dress
and get back for the dinner.
Before too long, letters will be
going out identifying those stu-
dents that are invited to be recog-
nized and asking their parents, to
join them for the festivities.
Usually a 3.25 GPA or better (plus
a good discipline record) or win-
ning some award that brings
honor to WHS is all that's needed
to earn an invitation.

Independence Day celebration
was an ideal event to foster bettei-
community relations.
Both residents and visitors
alike could remain within the city
to participate in a common event.
A total of $14,000 was raised and
the fireworks display surpassed
everyone's expectations.
In 1998, after the huge suc-
cess of the previous year, the
committee then established a two
part goal-to have the city of
Mexico Beach become known as
the place for family-oriented festi-
vals, and as having the best fire-
works display in Northwest
Florida.
When the committee began to
plan for that year's celebration.
an employee was hired to coordi-
nate the festival. They raised
$30,000 and contracted with a
number of businesses.
This required a more "official"
organization, therefore a non-
profit corporation was formed to
fill this need with the assistance
of J. PatrickHoward. That year's
outcome exceeded their own
expectations and the commu-
nity's response was overwhelm-
ing.
The 1999, committee intends
to broaden the scope of this year's
activities. A two-day festival is
being planned which will include
an art show with cash prizes
being given for two categories and
best of show. All local artists are
encouraged to look for more Infor-
mation to be released on the show
soon
* This year's furidraising efforts
began with a successful pancake
breakfast in February. Addition-
ally, a spaghetti luncheon is
scheduled in March, followed by a
fish fry in April, Hawaiian luau in
May, and barbecue picnic in
June.
Also, a giveaway fundraiser
will begin soon featuring a char-
ter, video camera, and cash.
The generosity and commu-
nity spirit of the businesses, resi-
dents, and tourists in Mexico
Beach and adjacent Gulf County
have made it possible for the com-
mittee to expand its horizons
every year. .
