City Gets Good Reaction On Submitted Recovery Plan

Possible Assistance Available ___________________

From U.S. Dept of Commerce


Port St. Joe city commission-
ers got what appears to be good
news from Ralph Roberson, co-
chairman of an ad hoc committee
that put together a plan of eco-
nomic recovery for Gulf County.
City Clerk Pauline Pendarvis
told the board correspondence
had been received from Roberson
advising the city of possible assis-
tance available from the U. S.
Department of Commerce Econo-
mic Development Agency.
According to Roberson's letter
Willie Taylor (program specialist
for EDA) had received a copy of
the Economic Recovery Plan and
called stating EDA was very inter-
ested in helping the city with
some of the projects listed in it.
Roberson explained that match
money and/or funding for specif-

ic projects were discussed.
The EDA representative dis-
cussed some of the projects that
would directly impact economic
recovery and assist in creating,
SJobs for the area.
Roberson pointed out that the
committee had no authority to
act. "Our role as a group of citi-
zens interested in assisting our
government entities has been to
put together this plan to be used
as a tool by you as 'you work for
economic assistance." he wrote.
Mayor Johnny Linton told
Roberson the city would respond
to EDA this week. He furthermore
thanked the citizen group"'for Its'
assistance' to the city and county
and asked for its continued help.
Roberson also sent copies of
the letter to the Gulf County
Commission and Port Authority'
advising them of EDA's offer of
assistance.
The nine member committee
was comprised of a cross section
of representatives from the coun-
ty. The plan received good reviews
from Enterprise Florida, which
indicated it would use the plan as
a .guide for developing Its game
plan for assistance.
Representative Beverly Kil-
mer's office is also using the plan
to tiaclk legislation that will help
with some of the issues spelled
out in It.
Roberson said, "Rep. Kllmer's
office has even asked if they could
use this plan as a model for other
areas with economic problems."
The list of projects were cate-
gorized. as Immediate needs,
infrastructure needs, and eco-
nomic' development needs, for the
a)-ea.

Education Vouchers

WE SUPPOSE ONE NEEDS to be In the financial predica-
ment Gulf County is In to appreciate how important state school
funds are to a small county. When one realizes this, he comes to
appreciate even more how dependent small counties are on state
funds especially for the operation of their schools and main-
taining some semblance of presentation on the level of the larger
counties.
One appreciates the state oversight on local school operations,
in order to maintain an even requirement on the end product: an
adequately educated grown child. A child who receives the same
opportunities as his neighbor of across the street. across the
county, or across the tracks.
WE READ WITH APPREHENSION the information concern-
ing the state offering vouchers to some students and not others.
The plan, If it is not Introduced properly, smacks of offering
uneven educational opportunities to the children of Florida. If the
handing out of vouchers is not done equally, it will give some chil-
dren an opportunity over some and-even though this isn't the
intent-serve to penalize the very ones it is supposed to help.
Strings are in the act of being applied to the ability to receive
the vouchers. An attempt is being made to stress accountability of
the private schools which will be receiving these extra students so
that all students will be on an even playing field. Strings need to
be applied.
PRESENTLY, ALL SCHOOLS IN the state of Florida do not
have equal offerings. This is the impetus for creating the voucher
system, and needs attending prior to vouchers being initiated. For
instance, pupils in the schools having the poorest results with
their instructional attempts, would receive vouchers for its stu-
dents to attend private schools.
Private schools are not presently having to meet state stan-
dards in any facet of operation. This was first made evident in ath-
letics, giving private schools an edge over public schools since
they do not have to accept every pupil who presents himself as a
student, nor do they have the residency requirements of public
schools. If this difference is so glaring in the realm of athletics,
how bad is it in the academic realm?
ISSUING VOUCHERS TO SOME students presently attend-
ing public school, in order for him to be able to attend private
schools, would help the public school. in that it would rid them of
the sub-par performing student. But wouldn't the reverse be so
for the private school?
This voucher idea has been rebuffed by certain other states.
We think ours should give it more serious study than it has, before
making a final decision. Let's make the opportunity for our stu-
dents more even than it presently appears to be.



Fireworks Will Go On
:, -PQOT ST.-, JOE .WILL HAVE a fireworks display .h ,i,J,ply
Fpurth.-You can can count onthatl
t Wniri faced with the prospect of possibly not having the' annu-
al fireworks show this year, due to money constraints, the
Merchants' Association dug in Its heels. at a recent meeting, and
said, "No way!"
The fireworks display has become a tradition to Port St. Joe.
There are more than just our folks who will be disappointed if the
show doesn't go on. So, the group decided that it WILL go on as
scheduled!
THE MERCHANTS NAMED a special committee to raise
money among themselves. and others who care to participate, to
pay for the annual presentation. This will be no cheap endeavor.
either. It costs the city' of Port St. Joe approximately S7,000 to put
on the fireworks show at the level which they have been support-
ing. The city is suffering the shorts, big time, this year and can't
spend money in this manner, nor should it be expected of them.
The city has other, more Important, uses for its money.
KUDOS TO THE SMALL BAND of merchants that took the
fireworks dilemma by the fuse. so to speak. and decided we would
witness our own fireworks display and celebrate the July Fourth
holiday in the manner which we have become accustomed to.
We're one of the first small cities to. offer fireworks at July 4
and it has proven very popular. We would hate to see us be forced
to abandon the practice, for any reason, even if for only a year!

90-Day Clock for FEMA Appeals

Starts June 14 for Citizens, County


Gulf County has officially
been notified that a 60-day exten-
slon began April 14 and" will con-
tinue through June 14, which will
formally open the appeals window
for property owners to respond to
the proposed flood, map changes
for Gulf County. E
Gulf County Chief. Adminis-
trator Don Butler said the county
received notice of the extension-
dates last week. Gulf County had
requested the 60-day extension to
allow them adequate time to gath-
er information for the appeals
process.
As Gulf County Commission-.
er Warren Yeager pointed out,
"FEMA has spent years gathering., .
information. Gulf County and
affected property owners certainly
deserve a reasonable period of
time to prepare their response to
the flood map changes."
Last month.' The Star
announced the formation of the
Gulf County Coastal Development
Association which is already hard
at work organizing property own-
ers and informing them of FEMA's
actions. This was done after a,
public workshop in mid-March on`
flood map-proposals. .
Commissioner Yeager told
approximately 100 Cape and
Indian Pass residents, realtors.
and property owners, "It's not
going to be a quick or easy
process." The group has moved
forward with plans to mount an
organized counter to FEMA's pro-, ."
posal.
Step one will be to organize.
an appeal to FEMA's proposed '
flood map changes, and (2) petU-
tion the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service to take both the Cape and
Indian Pass off the CBRA list.
SAs has been previously
explained in The Star, CBRA
(Coastal Barrier' Resource Act)' ,
designation is the major concern
when considered with FEMA's a
flood map changes. The Cape and -
portions of Indian Pass have been 0
under the CBRA since 1982,
resulting in property owners not
being able to purchase low cost
government-backed flood Insur- ;
ance. If FEMA's new changes go
into effect, then much of the cape :
would fall under a higher flood
probability zone. .- ..
This would force property
Owners to pay several times "as
much for flood Insurance cover-
age purchased from private carri-
ers (if feasible at all); property val-
ues could fall; most banks are not

likely to lend money to purchase''
or develop Cape -property;' and'
future development could be-
severely impacted.

It, is estimated the average
property owner will have to6 pay
an additional $2,000 to $4,000
per year to develop in those CBRA
areas in extra insurance and
financing expenses if FEMA's pro-
posal goes through.
90-Day Appeals Window
Starting June 14, property
owners and Gulf County have 90
days to make an appeal to FEMA
countering its flood map propos-
als.
There are several guidelines
property owners need to be. aware
of as they prepare appeals data.
*All appeals must go through
and be submitted'by Gulf County.
They should be turned In at the
Gulf County Administration/
Building Department in the Gulf
County Courthouse. Gulf County
will then forward all appeals to
FEMA. including its separate
appeal.
*Commissioner Yeager re-
quested that all appeals be turned -
in as soon as possible to facilitate
maximum coordination. It is,
entirely possible that either Gulf
County or property owners can
share information, if the informa-
tion is shared early in the
process.
eFEMA requires that all
appeals be based on data contra-
dicting or dispelling its flood ele-
vation proposals.
*Data such as land elevation
surveys or any other information
that verifies reasons why property
should not be re-zoned (including
some of FEMA's own maps. which
contradict what they are propos-
ing) can be considered as good
appeals data.
Each appeal must be
addressed by FEMA before they
can make a final determination
on flood elevations.
As Don Morrow (Gulf County
Coastal Development Association)
put it, "If we are somewhat suc-
cessful with either issue, it would
take care of some of our prob-
lems."
Anyone- needing additional
information should edntact the
Gulf County Commission Office or
members of the Gulf County
Coastal Development Association.
One of the major complaints
aired during the public hearing is
that the burden of proof seems to
be placed square on the shoulders
of property owners and the coun-
ty. Both parties will have to bear
the expense of gathering data
contradicting FEMA's proposal,
when FEMA failed to do first-hand
studies of the area prior to mak-
ing the suggested flood elevation
changes.

Refreshment
In an effort to better serve
patients, Gulf Pines Hospital has
begun Its volunteer program and
now provides patients and family
members with morning and after-
noon snacks. The volunteer pro-
gram. under the direction of Jean
Quaranta. is providing more one-
on-one patient interaction for
developing activity and social ser-
%ice programs.
After two days in a hospital
setting many patients become
restless and anxious to resume
their normal activities such as
sewing, painting, reading, etc.
Mrs. Quaranta spends time with
each patient and identifies and
formulates an appropriate pro-
gi-am for each. She also counsels
them on social services available
to them.
.'! The hospital is also proud to
provide a refreshment cart fobr
patients and family members
a...ch morning and afternoon.
S'andwviches, fruit, ice cream,
cakes and pies. juices. milk and
coffee are served.

',::allergic rhinitis (to give it its proper -

SMost people who suffer from

percent of allergy sufferers can blame
the ragweed and ryegrass that
_ !.,pollinate in the late summer. July
and August mark the peak of the

things you can do ,to reduce your
'suffering. Here are some tips from
Research Products Corporation,
maker of Space-Gard high efficiency
!air cleaners:
Avoid outdoor activities first
thing in the morning. Many plants
', release their pollen between 5 a.m.
and 10 a.m., so pollen levels may be
-?'highest then. .
Do not hang sheets and bedding
',outdoors to dry. Even though sun-
dried sheets smell and feel great, they
may also collect a load of pollen and
other allergens when hung outdoors.
Keep your house closed up,
Especially during the morning hours
when pollen may be more prevalent.
Consider central air conditioning
''for your home. Air conditioners alone
'with conventional filters aren't very
efficient at filtering air, but they
do allow you to close up your house
and still stay comfortable. If your air
conditioner allows you to recirculate
indoor air instead of bringing in
pollen-laden outdoor air, use the
recirculating feature.
Add a high efficiency, non-
electronic air cleaner to your heating
and cooling system. A high effi-
ciency air cleaner removes up to


''''I


99 percent of dust and pollen and
doesn't produce ozone, which can
aggravate breathing problems.
a Run your air conditioner and/or
high efficiency air cleaner when
you are home and moving about.
Pollen is relatively heavy and settles
out of still air in about 20 minutes.
However, activity stirs up the pollen
and gets it airborne again where it
can be captured by your nose, or your
high efficiency air cleaner, whichever
comes first.
Be aware that pollen is just one of
many irritants that may cause
allergies and asthma. Spores, dust
and the feces of the common house
dust mite also cause problems. It is
virtually impossible to avoid all
allergy causes, but following these
suggestions can reduce your exposure
to many of them.
For more information about how a
high efficiency air cleaner can help
you maintain your indoor air quali-
ty, call the Consumer Information
Department of Research Products
Corporation at 1-800-545-2219. Ask

Cardiac Deaths In Men May Run In Families According to Study:


S Researchers have shown, for
the first time, that sudden cardiac
death in men runs in families,
according to a study in the April
19 edition of the Circulation:
Journal of the American Heart
Association.
Researchers have long known
that a person's genetic blueprint
contributes to his or her heart
attack risk, but this is the first
study to identify a genetic risk for
sudden cardiac death, which
S occurs in about 250,000 individu-
'als each year in the United States.
The study's lead author,
Xavier Jouven, M.D., says,


"Physicians generally ask patients
about a possible parental history
of sudden death." Jouven is a car-
diologist at Service de Cardiologie,
Hopital Boucicaut, and epedemi-
ologist at Unite INSERM 258
d'Epidemiologic Cardiovasculaire,
H6pital Broussais, Paris.
In this study, The Paris
Prospective Study I, sudden death
is defined as natural death that
occurs an hour after onset of
symptoms. The patient may-not
have had previously been diag-
nosed with heart disease.
.The risk of sudden death
among men whose mother or


father had experienced sudden
death was almost double that of
males whose parents did not suf-
fer sudden death. For men whose
mother and father both died of
sudden death, the sudden death
risk was nine time higher than for.
those whose parents did not die. of
sudden death.
Familial history of sudden
death may help identify those at
high risk for this condition and'
motivate physicians to advise-
their patients about how to,
reduce the risk of heart disease,
strokes, and sudden death.
Jouven says.


Prevention measures would
include reducing risk factors such
as excessive weight gain, high
blood pressure, elevated blood
levels of cholesterol, sedentary
lifestyle and smoking.
"While we don't know if a
parental history of sudden death
is also an independent risk factor
for women, it would be prudent
for women who have a family his-
tory of sudden death also to con- .
sider preventive health mea-
sures," Jouven Says.
In the study, researchers fol-
lowed 7,079 middle-aged men

Secondhand Cigarette Smoke Kills


Are you a nonsmoker? Did
you know that you can die from
secondhand smoke? This new
year, the American Cancer Society
urges you to protect yourself and
your families from this potentially
deadly fate.
Each year, about 53,000 non-i
smoking adults die as a result of
breathing the smoke of others'
cigarettes. The risk of dying of
lung cancer is 30 percent higher
for a nonsmoker living with a.
smoker, compared with a non-
smoker living with a nonsmoker.
"The new year is here. This is
the time when Floridians renew'
Their commitment to a smoke-free
environment for themselves and
their children," said Sigurd
Normann, M.D., Ph.D., president
of the board for the American
Cancer Society, Florida Division,
and full professor at the
University of 'Florida, School of
Medicine.
In 1993, the US Environ-
mental Protection Agency (EPA)


declared environmental tobacco.
smoke (also referred to as second-
hand smoke) as a Class A car-.
cindgen.
As part of the secondhand
smoke prevention plan, the'
American Cancer Society's advo-'
cacy efforts include support of-
Florida legislation that would
remove the current preemption'
language in the Florida Clean
Indoor Air Act and allow cities and
counties to adopt more stringent,
local tobacco control ordinances. j
In addition, the American
Cancer Society works hand-in-i,
hand with other important orga- :
nizations for legislation mandat-?
ing Florida restaurants be smoke-
free. The American Cancer Society,
also backs other programs that
will eliminate the nsk of second-,
hand smoke, including Florida's,I
Tobacco Pilot Program.
"Our mission is to help save.
the lives of nonsmokers, smokers
and their children from cancer.,.
We are able to do this by support-
ing smoke-free public policies and


educational programs," added Dr.
Normann.
Secondhand smoke poses
additional health hazards for
unborn and young children.
According to the 1988 Center For
Disease Control (CDC) report,
about 692,720 Florida youth were
exposed to secondhand smoke in
the home in 1996.
Children exposed to second-
hand smoke have increased risks
of respiratory 'illnesses and infec-
tions, impaired development of'
lung: function,' and middle ear
infections

is the nationwide community-
based volunrieer health organiza-
tion dedicated. to eliminating can-

advocacy, 'and service. For more,

Sthe cottage closest to the water is in danger of encroaching tides,


second every 20 seconds.
The Coast Guard deactivated
the lighthouse as an active aid to
navigation on January 18, 1996,
and extinguished the light. It is
hoped that in the renovation
process, the light can be relit.
According to Tom Garner,
director of the northwest district
of the Florida Lighthouse
Association, Gulf County has a
historical treasure in the Cape
San Bias lighthouse and its two
keeper's cottages. He said it was a
shame that one of the cottages is
currently in danger of being com-
pletely destroyed by the tides as
the coastline has eroded.
"There are federal statutes
that prevent this sort of thing
from happening. A historical site
has to be preserved; you're in vio-
lation of federal law if you fail .to
prevent avoidable destruction of
the site," said Garner.
According to him, it could
take from five to 10years to refur-
bish and renovate the three struc-
tures, after immediate danger to
the lighthouse keeper's cottages is
alleviated by moving the cottages
further inland.
He suggested a consortium of
interested locals, county govern-
ment, the Florida Lighthouse
Association, and Air Force offi-
cials work together to secure vari-
ous grants. and raise funds to
restore the site. "It would be won-
derful to have these restored, and
maybe open the site once or twice
a year to the public, to enable oth-
ers to experience'and appreciate
the structures," added Garner..

ference between Gulf County

Cape San Bias Lighthouse


Is Visited by Tour Group

Congress Has Appropriated Over
$400,000 to Begin Restoration Work


Members of the Florida
Lighthouse Associationtoured the
Cape San Bias lighthouse last
SFriday morning as part of a three-
day tour of Northwest Florida's
lighthouses. Two groups of 24,
each visited the local historical
Site, as well as touring Danny

Bayou. which was once the
Beacon Hill lighthouse keeper's
quarters.
During the tour, the group
visited St. Marks, Crooked River

just seemed like they were never
going to end.
The lighthouse design acted
somewhat like a chimney, provid-
ing an upward draft of air to vent
the heat and smoke from the
lighthouse's pre-electricity lan-
tern. The entrance to the stair
cylinder is 20 feet above ground
and is reached by a metal stair-
case. This put the doorway above
the high-water mark of potential
storm surge.
Two metal balconies encircle
the circular lantern. The lower is
at the cast iron base and the
upper surrounds the glass storm

LIGHTHOUSE 114 YEARS OLD
The current metal skeleton
lighthouse is the third lighthouse
on the cape since the mid 1800's.
The first two were victims of erod-
ing shoreline, and the current one
has been moved twice since it was
built in 1885.
This "skeletal" lighthouse has
eight cast iron legs that support
the "watch room" and lantern at
the top of the tower. The legs are
bolted into concrete foundations.
The type of construction allowed
less resistance to wind-and-wave
action and reduced the weight of
the structure on the soft, sandy
earth. Access to the lantern is up
a central, cast-iron-plate cylinder
with a spiral metal stairway. A
small window located half way
from the base of the lantern illu-
minates the interior of the access
cylinder.
The touring group, as well as
members of the St. Joseph
Historical Society, and various
county and city government offi-
cials had the unique experience
enjoyed by few, of actually climb-


the-lantern sits a conical, metal
roof,
For those who braved the
climb to the top, the view was fan-
tastic, even considering the over-
cast blustery day. From the top,
one could see St. Joseph's Bay,
Black's Island and the towers of
the paper mill. On the western
vista you could look down upon
the lighthouse keeper's cottages,
and see both sides of the San Bias
spit. It was truly a memorable
sight.
UNIQUE LENS
The lens Is an 1859 French-
made Fresnal lens that had been
originally installed in the last
masonry lighthouse on the Cape.
Manufactured by Rarbier Benard
& Thre in France, the third-order
bi-valve (or "clam shell") lens is
made of over 200 cast-glass
prisms, each hand polished to
optic quality and precise dimen-
sions. The prisms are set into a
bronze frame. Chips caused by
Confederate musket fire are still
visible. At 101 feet above sea level,
the electric beacon could be seen
for 25 miles as it. flashed for one

excessive speed, the deputies per-
ceived him to be overly nervous.
Upon noticing this, Deputy
Ricky Tolbert walked his K-9
around the car at which time the
dog alerted for the presence of
narcotics. In a search of the vehi-
cle, deputies found a quantity of
less than 20 grams of marijuana:
and a package of rolling papers.

resident of Port St. Joe, was then

the deer. The most unique. so far,

Freshwater fishing continues
to bring in bream, specks. bass,
and catfish. The wind had anglers
looking for coves, but on larger
bodies of water, the wind can
drive large bait schools up into
the shore. These can be super
hotspots on windy days. The
Dead Lakes and Howard's Creek
are producing well right now.
The wind and murky waters
have slowed saltwater fishing
down some this week. St. Joe Bay
always has clear, calm waters
somewhere, and trout anglers
had good luck on the flats with
shrimp-tipped jigs or top water
baits. Live shrimp do not do well
after bait fish move onto the flats,
but If you do use them and catch
a two or three finger fish. hook it
back up and throw it out. Gator
trout love them.
Wind again kept many boats
off the water this week nearshore.
Very early the winds were calm,
but the seabreezes kicked in mid-
morniing and made Spanish or
cobia fishing difficult.

Outdoor Adventure
Series and GFC Cancel
Amateur Bass Tourneys
The Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission (GFC), Wildlife
Foundation of Florida, ,and the
Texas-based Outdoor Adventure
Series (OAS) have canceled a
series of amateur- bass: fishing
tournaments that were scheduled
next year in Florida.
Randy Stark, owner of the
OAS, was preparing to bring the
biggest-purse amateur bass fish-
Ing tournament in history to
Florida early next year. The plan
called for three mega-money fish-
ing tournaments in different parts
of the state. Tournament winners
would then compete for a Florida
championship. : '
"A late start in planning'for
the Florida tournaments and a
change in' our relationship with
Fox Sports Southwest have forced
us to postpone our plans for at
least a year," Stark said. "We are
negotiating an agreement with
another national network. for
broadcast and advertising activity
for the Florida tournaments.".
In addition to bass tourna-
ments, plans include producing
as many as four hour-long televi-
sion specials about Florida's fish-
ing, hunting, and wildlife viewing
opportunities. The OAS staff will
be responsible for conducting the
tournaments and getting spon-
sors. and the GFC will provide
technical assistance for the pro-
ject, tentatively titled "The
Outdoor Adventure Series."
Stark said he and his staff are
confident things will work out for
Florida. The OAS made their
debut this year in Texas with a
series of four tournaments. The
biggest event on Lake Fork drew
2,600 anglers over three days.
The amateur series in Florida
would follow, the same successful
format used In Texas. Prizes are
awarded for the seven:rheaviest
bass on an hourly basis during
each three-day event.
"We're looking forward to
coring to Florida and working
with the GFC and the Wildlife
Foundation of Florida i putting
on a great amateur bass fishing

"Cameron is a great kid who
works hard and is the biggest
leader on the team. He normally

"had."

E earth Day 99 Kennedy Tells Rotarians Little Known


Facts About City's New Marina Project

Today is 29th Anniversary of Day Established to Raise "We Spent Most of the Big Money on Materials Which Had to Last a

Awareness of Americans Regarding Their Responsibilities Long Time, Such as Underwater Structures and Buildings" -Kennedy


By Jim Newton
Today is the, twenty-ninth
anniversary of Earth Day. Earth
Day was established on April 22,
1970 to raise the awareness of
Americans regarding the need
and responsibility of protecting
,what God had given us, our earth.
On that first Earth Day over
20 million people took part in the
largest political demonstration in
U.S. history. Ten thousand
schools, 2,000 colleges and uni-
versities, and .nearly every
community took part in the
demonstrations. Even Congress
adjourned so that senators and
representatives could participate.
At the time of the first Earth
Day; there were few major envi-
ronmental laws, our waters
burned from oil spills, and our
smog was a fact of life.
Since that first Earth Day, we
have made considerable progress.
Most of our rivers are swimmable
and drinkable. We still have air
pollution problems, but they are
few, in isolated areas, and are
S directly related to our love of the
automobile.
There are now more than a
dozen environmental laws that
Impact each of our lives, both at
work and at home. We can no
longer throw away our paints or
dump our oils on the ground.
Environmental requirements are
a part of every, business' opera-
tion.
Some contend that there are
too many laws and requirements,
but if we had continued as we


were before the first Earth Day.
we might not even be able to live
on this planet. Normal business
economics did not take into
account environmental costs.
Some people contend that
there is no longer a need for an
Earth Day. I disagree. Earth Day
has become a day of celebration
and education. During the week
when Earth Day occurs, there are
festivals across the U.S. that
teach important information
about our environment and how
we can protect it. We will always
have a need to learn.
This is a time whenwe learn
about the many organizations
that are in place to protect the
environment. This is a time when
we celebrate how far we have
come. This is a time when we
renew our commitment to envi-
ronmental principles. We cannot
eliminate this day, even when
protecting the environment
becomes a normal part of our
everyday lives.
We are now moving away from
environmental requirements and
more towards sustainable devel-
opment. Industrial operations are
being viewed as a type of ecosys-
tem, where the by-products and
even wastes from one factory are
being considered raw materials to
other plants.
Companies are looking at
what happens to their products
when their useful life has been.
reached and either designing
them to be environmentally
friendly or finding ways to recycle
them. We are on the threshold of
a new era.


Environmental costs ,are
being fully identified and allocat-
ed where they occur. Businesses
are looking at the environment
and environmentally friendly
aspects of their products as a',
means of selling their products
and separating themselves from
their competition.
We, in the Port St. Joe area.
are blessed with an asset that :
offers everyone an indication of
just how important the
environment is-St. Joseph Bay.:
Scientists from around the state
come here to study the bay. It is
considered one of the most pris-
tine bays along the 'Gulf of
Mexico. It is our responsibility to
protect this bay.
This does not mean that we
have to keepdevelopment away or
return it to the way it was a cen-
tury ago. We must be involved in
the development that goes on
around us. Let our voices be
heard when companies such as
St. Joe Company begins to devel-
op their property. Make sure that
they, are aware of how valuable
this bay is and that we want to
protect it.
I am still working to establish
.an environmental education cen-
ter here in Port St. Joe. I believe
that our community can be a
leader., in protecting our
environment, while maintaining a
respectable standard of living and
al lowing the area to grow.
In the coming months, I
would like to offer some practical
ideas that each of us can begin to
use to protect our environment
and our homes. In the coming
months, I will present nany of
these ideas and I will answer your
questions about environmental
Issues.
If you have a question, write
to me here at the paper and I'll
find answers for you. Have a
happy Earth Day and protect the
environment for yourselves and
future generations yet to come.

S Bill Kennedy, Preble-Rish
SEngineering's man in Port St. Joe,
explained some little known facts
, about: the new city marina to the
Rotary Club at their meeting last
Thursday.
Kennedy, who announced
.that the facility had been officially
turned over to the city, noted that
the city of Port St. Joe had
received a valuable bargain in
their construction project.' "In
surveying various marina pro-
.jects. getting ready to come up
'with the design, I found that
many of the projects had been
built on abandoned commercial
property and were pretty valuable
pieces of real estate." he told his


audience.
"As a contrast, the city of Port
St. Joe gained ownership of its
property for $10.00," he said.
"We had some misgivings
about the project, at first," he
said. "We just knew that the for-
mer tank farm had left all kinds of
contaminants. But, when DEP
examined the soil underneath,
they found virtually no contami-
nants," he continued.
"Construction of the lagoon
consisted of removal of 130.000
cubic yards of sand, or enough to
cover two football fields eight feet
deep, to gain a pool with 7 to 7
1/2 feet deep at low tide."
Kennedy said.


"We put most of the available
money into things which had to
last for many years, such as piling
around the edges, buildings and
underwater structures," he said.
The speaker said that, tenta-
tively, the marina will officially
open up around May 15. "The
lease agreement is scheduled to
be complete and signed at this
time. "Already, a few stragglers
have slipped in and used the
marina overnight, but officially it
isn't open yet,," he concluded.
Robin Downs was installed as
a new member.
John Fotheringham of
Champlaign. III.. was a guest.


This aerial view shows the newly completed marina located on First Street on the shores of St.
Joseph's Bay. The facility has 79 covered slips, 120 wet slips and numerous dry dock storage. The ship's
store is shown at the far left. and the dry dock is located to its rear. The entrance to the bay is at the
top of the photo.

General Legal
Advice Is Only a
Phone Call Away
The Florida Bar's "Call-A-
Law" program provides a quick,
easy way for consumers to access
general legal information on vari-
ous areas of the law. The 65 pre-
recorded tapes inform the public
of their legal rights and responsi-
bilities and help identify when an
attorney should be consulted.
Anyone can access the service
24 hours a day by calling, (850)
561.-1200. The' topics include
common consumer issues:such-
as divorce, child custody. traffic
tickets, what to do if arrested.
small claims procedures, injunc-
tions -for protection, rights of
landlords and tenants, wills and
other topics.
Before making a call, it is best
to review a "Call-A-Law" con-
sumer pamphlet, which lists the
tape titles and access codes. You
can contact \'our local library' for a
free copy' of the pamphlet or send'
a sell-addressed stamped. busi-
ness-sized envelope to The Florida
Bar. Consumer Pamphlets. 650
Apalachee Parkway. Tallahassee.
Fla. 32399-2300.
The pamphlet is also available,'.-
on The Florida Bar's website.
FLABAR: ONLINE, at www'.FLA
BAR.org.
To save time and money, it is
best to call during off-peak hours.
A typical three minute call from
Key West to Tallahassee during
business hours costs approxi-
mately 73 cents, 55 cents in the
evening and 43 cents after mid-
night and on weekends.
Florida "Call-A-Law" cannot
replace the legal advice of an
attorney or answer specific legal
questions. However, the tapes
provide some direction in
researching legal topics before
professional counsel is sought.
Each year, more than 10,000
consumers use the service. The
program is a public sei-vice pro-
ject of The Florida Bar's
Consumer Protection Committee
with funding provided by The
Florida Bar Foundation Interest
on Trust Accounts (IOTA)'
Program.

MEDITATIONS OF A


By LOWELL F. ADAMS
Nations That'
SForget God
"The wicked shall
be turned into hell,
and all the nations
that
forget God" I
Psalms 9:1 7

,eUR NATION, America, used to be called a
"Nation Under God", meaning, of course, that America
wavs a nation that honored God the Creator, and used
His moral law.as a guide for human behavior, in both
,the private and political sectors. Our monetary bills and
coinage still bear the national motto, "In God We Trust"
..on their face... .
However, in these latter days, our political leaders
are relegating any reference to God and His Holy Word,
,iinto national obsciirity. It is now forbidden' to talk to
anyone about God or His 'Word, in anpypublic building.
Especially public schools and courthouses. The same:
-prohibition is beginning to be felt on public streets.
SThis. change of official attitude has come into' being
during my lifetiime. When I was a studentin the, the
.public schools, we often had schoolwide devotional
services to begin the school day. A real blessing for this..
young student, and many others, no doubt. A classmate
"and I were asked by the High School Principal, to have
that service on one occasion.: However, in this
humanistic age, we are letting unbelievers prescribe the
attitude of our nation, toward God and His teaching. It is
now a forbidden subject.
But don't let Satan deceive you. The majority are
still believers. Churches are growing and hundreds of
new churches spring up each year; People are turning to
God in greater numbers each day. God is still on His
Throne. His: absolute power will one day be revealed to6
those who tirn their backs on Him. ,; .
:; .Seems to me our U.I:S. Supreme court is guilty of
violating the United State Constitution. The constitution
prohibits the state making any law respecting religion in ,
America. It says absolutely nothing abuti separation of
church and, state. The' court :declared,., that- a -law,
however, and plunged the nation into the precarious
position of rejecting God. We aie paying dearly for that
'with terrible things happening both in schools and
"elsewhere Sdtani mustbe happy with his great : itory.
America's children, tomorrow's '.leaders, need
instruction in right righteousness.,(II Timothy 3:16).
In fact, a lot of us adults could use some of that, also.. ,
"..Blessed is that nation whose God is the Lord."
Psalms 33:12.
America became great because of faith in the
Almighty God. Shall we let it perish because we have
decided to turn our backs on and reject that same God?

Oliver F. Taylor salvation. This is a gift from God.
'Visitation Minister, First We should accept this gift from
United Methodist Church God, bit not boast about it.
Pride and humility seem to be opposite sides of the
same coin. They need to be kept under control. We
should take great pride in being Christians, but not to
the extent it debases others. We need to share our
understanding of salvation with others that they may
receive this gift from God.
Let us remember "that God so loved the world" means
the whole world. God offers salvation to all who through
faith accepts His Son as Lord and Savior.
