la's second consecutive year in
the #3 standing. As was last year,
the peninsula is outranised only
by two beaches in Hawaii.
The peninsula's magnificence
has been recognized b.y Dr.
Beach's fiview for several years
now. In 1997, St. Joseph State
Park was at #1,' only. to be
bumped up to #3 the following

City Awards Engineering Maria Gathering

and Grant Writing Services Set For May 29th
S' By Jessica Summers


During two special meetings held over the past week, Port St. Joe city
commisisoners decided to retain Preble-Rish, Inc. as city, engineers and
selected a Tallahassee firm, Summit Professional Services. Inc., to fur-
nish grant writing services.
The city opened request for proposals (RFP's) in April after advertis-
ing the two positions. They received a total of seven proposals for each
position, most of which were joint proposals by vanous firms.
Preble-Rish. Inc.. Ralph Roberson CPA. and Sue Marley and
Associates was the only local firm submitting a proposal. ,
Their offer called for the team to Jointly do the grant writing with
Preble-Rish. Inc. administrating the services and doing engineering work:
Roberson would have provided grant writing: and Sue Marley and
Associates supplying surveying needs.
Smith & Gillespie, Summit Professional Services, and the local team
were selected as the top three candidates for the positions during thee
meeting.
During that same meeting. Jeannie Mims, president of the Port St.
Joe Merchants Association. presented the board with a resolution for

Two issues surfaced during
Tuesday's regular Gulf County
Commission meeting concerning
Florida Coast' Paper Company,
L.L.C. personal property tax eval-
uation and a company which was
refused when they offered to pur-
chase the ideal mill.
Commissioner Nathan Peters,
Jr. got the conversation started
when he brought up a letter writ-
ten by Board Chairman Tommy
Knox to Gulf County Property,
Appraiser Kesley Colbert. con-
cerning the mill's personal prop-
erty valuation. .
Peters stated. "Reducing
taxes from $188 million to S112
million-that's an awesome
deduction."
He Issued concerns that if
assessments were reduced to that .
level, then it might be difficult to
get them back up in the future.
which would force a hardship on
taxpayers. Peters called for the
board to ask Colbert to qome
before them at the next regular
meeting and explain such a drop-
in assessments for Florida Coast
Papet Company.
Commissioner Warren Yeager
reminded the board that the prop-
erty appraiser was the one who
stuck his neck out and challenged
lawsuits filed in the past by
Florida Coast Paper Company and
St. Joe Company that ended in
favor of the county..
"He (Colbert) has rules and
regulations he must follow. We
need to talk with him and get an
explanation of what's going on
before we jump to conclusions,"
Yeager said.
The board agreed to ask
Colbert to attend and explain the
process at its next meeting.
During a telephone conversa-
tion withColb..eTuesd.yje ing ..
after the board's meeting. he said,
"There have been no numbers set
for Florida Coast Paper Company
personal property tax values, and
it's very premature to comment
on what that figure might be."
He further pointed out that he
had reviewed several figures with
Florida Coast Paper Company
officials, and the S112 million
amount was at the low end of the
numbers that have been dis-
cussed.
That figure was based on. a
combination of scenarios includ-
ing: first, if the mill were to be
reopened. 'whether the bleach
plant vWould operate; and the
mill's start-up costs, which,
according to Florida law, can be
directly credited against tax val-
ues. "
Those start-up costs have
been reported to be as much as
$40 million dollars.
"I don't have the leeway to
pick an imaginary figure out of
the air," Colbert said.
"I plant to assess their per-
sonal property according to the
letter of the law which is the same
way I do everybody," he added.
Colbert continued stating
that the final appraisal would be
contingent upon several factors
and he is waiting for Florida.Coast
Paper Company representatives


to fill in all the' blanks before he
can make that assessment.
Time is running out for the
mill to respond though.
Preliminary tax rolls must be
turned in to the Department of
Revenue by July 1st.
Propose to Purchase Mill
Commissioner Warren Yeager
opened another can of worms
when he told the board that
Congressman Allen Boyd had
brought 'a prospective buyer to
the area last week.
Yeager said it was his under-
standing that Smurfit-Stone said
they were not interested in selling
the mill. He asked Board Attorney
Tim McFarland if the commission
could do anything to encourage or
push the issue.
. McFarland, said there were,
several factors that entered into
the picture, including the current
bankruptcy status and problems
between the mill's partners. 4M
andSmurfit-Stone. He also point-
ed out that the owners may have
other alternatives available that
could generate more revenue than
to sell the mill at this time.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
responded, "I think the Vhole
point is they're only interested in
themselves-not 'us."
Gulf County has' been funded
by the state to subsidize its ad
valorem tax losses brought about
by the shutdown of the Florida
Coast Paper Company mill and its
failure to pay property taxes. The
state has made it plain that this is
the last year for tax relief help
from the State of Florida, and that
Gulfl County will have' to figure
out how to handle the loss of rev-
enue during the board's rext bud-
get year.
Commissioner Travlor told
the bar1d-a -ot. of changeswould--

Prized Assets

PORT ST. JOE MAY BE SUFFERING from the economic dol-
drums at the present time but it is not suffering from want of
valuable assets with which to attract new jobs to the area. This
isn't our idea nor our bragging on our merits, but the words of an
expert in what it takes to attract new jobs and keep them. It is, an
unbiased report, made from acute observation conducted from
outside looking in.
Bridgett Merrill, the second in command 'and the chief of
actively recruiting and matching up manufacturing firms with
compatible towns, made this observation this past 'week. She
made it as a result of an innocent question asked of her by a cit-
izen who truly wanted to know the answer, and didn't know what
the answer would be.
PORT ST. JOE CAN AFFORD to be choosy when it comes to
attracting a firm to give our many craftsmen a good job. We have
craftsmen from nearly every trade, right here in Port St. Joe and
throughout Gulf County. We have people who can do anything,
make anything, operate anything. We have a veritable treasure
trove of craftsmen which are ready and willing to do anything cre-
ative.
We also have other assets which are not to be squandered.
These assets include such intangibles as, "we have a fine place
to live". You can't buy that asset. Neither can you place a price tag
on it. It is just a condition which the average citizen may have
known fit his reasons for living here, but he was not ,aware it was
evident to people who didn't live here.
WE ALSO HAVE SUCH DESIRABLE :assets as a railroad
which serves the area, deep water harbor [which needs further
development] and a fine climate. Our only failure-and it is a.
major drawback-is our lack of an adequate highway system serv-
ing our county and community. Only secondary arteries go in an'd
out of Gulf County and we don't know of anything we can do about
that.
Considering the pluses-and that, blockbuster. "You have a
fine place to live"-more than overcomes our only major detriment
of inadequate highways, don't you think?
Now, all we have to do is convince an industry or two of this
situation,...

An' Enviable Record


GULF COUNTY SCHOOLS PRESENTED diplomas to 125
seniors Friday and Monday evenings. The county's schools con-
tinue to turn out quality grads as well as numbers.:
Every year, the number of graduates is about the same, with a
-few less than the year before, or a few more. The year we gradu-
ated, 1946, there were 26 to graduate from Port St. Joe. The
town-as well as the school-has grown since that time. It seems
like each time we lose a major employer the city takes a growth.
spurt. During the 40s and 50s, it was St. Joe Lumber & Export
Company which closed its doors and spelled an end to those 100
or so jobs. -
Lateron ,Vitro phased back its; operations, when the ULJited
SnStates managed to-place a.man on the moon.-We'ddsay'we'have
managed to lose about as many jobs as we have saved.
Still the community has managed to overcome adversity and
even manage to post modest growth over the years.
OUR SCHOOLS NEED MAKE NO apology to anyone, although
, there are legions of Gulf County folks who still call for them to. do
a better job. They still try to do a better job, too.
Just look at the number of high honor graduates and the
number of honor graduates both high schools manage to turn out.
This is the case each and every year.
Port St. Joe High School graduated 40 of its 84 graduating
seniors with Iigh honors or honors. That's 47% of the graduating
seniors.
: Wewahitchka High School graduated 16 of a. student body.
which numbered a total of 41. with high honors or honors. That's
39% of the graduating seniors.
We don't have any statistics on the matter, but we'll hazard a
guess that no other school system -in the state has such a high
percentage of their students receiving high honors or honors along
with their diplomas.
This is a portion of.-that "A fine place to live" moniker the
Enterprise Florida executive tagged us with.

Frenchie "Heard" a Nest of Little Snakes Rattling the leaves-Yeah


THE OTHER DAY, as I drove
into the carport one evening after
* work. I spied the "outside".cat sit-
ting for all the world as if it owned
the world and all that was in it.
The old cliche, "As satisfied
as a cheshire cat with a-bowl of.
cream", popped to mind immedi-'
ately.:Our outside cat looked as if'.
it were king over all it surveyed. I
describe the cat as an "it"
because, I' had "it" de-maied' a
couple of years ago, on the mis-
taken assumption that ;we had
come into possession of, a'yellow
tabby FEMALE cat and I was
determined we.were not going to
have. any more kittens to give
away.
Anyhow, this .cat looked self-
satisfied as it sat there.
As I approached the carport
in my car, I noticed what
appeared to be a small pine limb
lying at the feet of the cat. '
As I drew closer,, the stick
turned into a baby-snake. 'The'cat
was- sitting there admiring "its"


ETAOIN SHRDLU

catch of a live baby snake.,

I PARKED MY car and
ambled over to examine the
snake, finding a dull grey snake
with markings on its back in a
very, belligerent mood. .When I
would touch it with.my can'e. the
little snake curled.'up, ready to
attack and defend- itself. I
touched it again 'and .the"'snake
curled up even more and laid per-
fectly still, as if it were dead.
I let the snake ,alone, then,
and headed into the' house. About
that time, Frenchie arrived in her
car. Since the snake 'was lying in
her parking place,. sie straddled


it with her car as she drove into
the carport.
I said, "Watch out for that
snake when you get out of the
car." "
She stepped down on the
floor ,of the carport and asked,
"What did you, say?"
The little' snake wasn't but
about six inches long, but' I
repeated my warning; for the
snake's sake, you understand. I
didn't want her mashing it.
About the time I finished get-
ting "Watch out for the snake,"
out-of imy mouth, Frenchie'sort of
hopped and 'sort of vaulted up on
the hood of her car,, asking.


"\~There!" : ,


WE LOOKED FOR the little
snake,' but it. had apparently'
crawled- off or the cat had
swallowed it. It was nowhere to be'
found." '
Frenchie made it into the
house, but she wouldn't go out-
side- againi 'for the 'rest of the '
night.
The snake and Frenchie .
. were safe for the remainder of"
the evening. Even the cat had'
turned from its snake charming
and gave' all its attention to its
empty food dish which lay further
up into 'the carport.
'The snake appeared, from out
of nowhere and disappeared-back
into nowhere.

THEN; AGAIN, TWO days
later, ,I was going outside to,
retrieve the morning paper and
take Smudgie for her morning
walk. As we were approaching the
carport on our return, Frenchie,


met me at the edge. :
"I know where that snake is
:that you saw the other evening,"
she said. '
"Well, where is it?"' I asked.
"It's in those bushes right
there. I heard it!" she declared.
"You HEARD a six inch snake
riusfling around .in-'those bushes
and pine needles?" I asked.
',That's right." she replied. "I
HEARD it!" she affirmed.'
"I'm going to get' tid of all
those flowers anti bushes that
Grow in'that bed, arid. fhat'll get
rid, of all the, snakes .living in
them," she said..... ....
So much for snakes moving
arid rustling around in.the bush-
es. That'll teach them to be noisy.

I' WANT TO ASHK you. Do you
really think Frerithie 'actually
,.heard the 'little baby snakes mov-
ing around? Do you -suppose they
were even making their home in
bushes right next to the most


traveled portion "of the
yard'-beside the entrance to the
carport? :,
I'have never .lea'd at'snlake
rustling aroiffid 'In the 'leaves
when it crawled. They've 'been
mighty quiet when I "was nearby
anrd 'I suppose they are'"all of the
'tune. '
I know we have snakes which
live in our yard. They make their
home in the murrilch which is piled
around the flower beds arid the
shrubs. I see one every once in a
while, but they are all harmless
green snakes.:
STrepeated this' i-atoriale to
Frenchie to no avail.
"You don't want to kill..those
snakes. They eat insects and are
beneficial to have around," I said.
"They're'snakes. so they must
be bad. -At least, they're bad
enough that I'd rather not have
them around," she' finished.
I guess the reason isfthai they
might do no harm but they'll
make Frenchie hurt herself.

Hess Orders Stay


In MTI Injunction


A suit for a temporary injunc-
tion filed by Material Transfer,
Inc. (MTI) in the Circuit Court of
Gulf Countyi against Seminole
Electric ,Cooperative,, Inc. came
before Judge tGlenn L. Hess this
week. Through the court action,
the local firm sought to require
Seminole to resume transporting
coal through its terminal in Port
St. Joe to Chattahoochee.
After hearing opening argu-
-ments by the parties in the pro-
ceeding, which convened Tuesday
morning at the Gulf County
Courthouse, the judge denied a
request by Seminole to dismiss'
the suit outright, but did grant a
:90-day stay of the motion.,
' In offering factors by which
he reached his decision, Judge
Hess acknowledged a similar
hearing which has already been
held in Federal District Court in
Tampa involving Central Gulf
Lines (MTI's sister company) and
Seminole. The parties of that case
are awaiting a decision on the
matter.
The -Gulf County Circuit
Judge granted the 90-day stay in


anticipation of Judge Adams'
(seated on the Federal District
Court) forthcoming ruling, in light
of the parallel circumstances
involved in the pending litigation.
Hess has chosen to wait for
the higher court ruling before he
makes a decision, feeling that it
will help him determine if it is.
necessary for the injunction hear-
ing to continue at this level.
Earlier ANRR Ruling
In March, Judge Hess ruled
in favor of a similar injunction
which had been filed by
:Apalachicola Northern Railroad
(ANRR) against Seminole, calling
for the hauling of coal to resume
according to a contracted agree-
ment.
In both suits filed, ANRR and
MTI stress the breach of contract-
ed terms and irreparable damage
to the companies. The two local
firms were forced to terminate
approximately 63 employees as a
result of the abrupt stoppage of
Shipments in December 1998. five.
years prior to the expiration of the
contract.

Joe Company CEO Peter Rummell
concerning coordinating efforts.
Commissioner Peters read
portions of a letter from Rummell
that outlines several items the
company is doing and has done to
assist the community. Among
that list was a boat building com-
pany that would be located on the
Gulf County Canal and employ 20
to 40 people.
EDC member Joe Danford
also pointed but that the group
had recently met with Chris Hine,
Vice President of Industrial and
Commercial Development for St.
Joe Company, and that the com-
pany has agreed to identify prop-
erty and assign a pnce tag for that
property, so the EDC can actively
market it for future economic
development.
w*Agreed to a license proposal
offered by the Air Force that will
allow public access to the beach
near the lighthouse at Cape San
Blas., Commissioner Warren
Yeager and County Administrator
Don Butler have been working on
the lighthouse property project
with the Air Force for several
months.
*-Agreed to go out for request


(From Page 1)

for proposals for the county's long
distance telephone service, as
requested by Commissioner
Tommy Knox. Commissioners
Peters objected to the motion,
stating that the current provider
employs 140 people, most of
whom live in Gulf County, and he
felt the board should support
them.
'-After discussing landfill
fees, the board decided to ask
Solid Waste Director Joe Danford
to bnng the board a; written rec-
ommendation on the fee policy at
its next meeting.
*-The board agreed to pay
$4,999.99 to help conduct a tran-
sect study of the Cape area. The
Gulf County Coastal Development
Association will pay $3,500 of the
study's cost.
This study will hopefully be
used to counter FEMA's proposal
to make drastic changes to the
flood map in the Cape and Indian
Pass areas. FEMA did a similar
elevation study to set the new
map figures, but they did it from
the air, rather than take actual
ground readings of the Cape.
The study will cost approxi-
mately $7,500.

and business persons within the city of Port St. Joe.
The resolution also outlined the number of merchants and their
employees affected by recent economic troubles, and how they have a
vested interest in the community and its future.

sented excellent overviewvs of their company's abilities and readiness to
do the job for the city.
As Commissioner Damon McNair pointed out during a brief recess,

Local Facility Celebrated "National NursingHome Week


According to the staff and
residents at Sunrise for Bay St.
Joseph Care Center, "National
Nursing Home Week", celebrated
May 10th through 15th, was a
gieat success!
They observed the occasion
with a different theme each day.
They included "Salute to
Albuquerque" (the center's home
office) with' a Spanish flare;
"Salute to Florida" a trip to the
beach and fish fry. i
"National Nurses Day" was
celebrated in a big way with gifts,
door prizes, and a luncheon. If
you weren't there, you missed it!
On Friday, they celebrated
the center's 16th anniversarywith
a cake supplied courtesy of Gulf
Pines Hospital. On Saturday, res-
idents and staff wound up the
week's events by having a garage
sale that got rid of all their old
furniture-and made a little prof-
it for the Activities Department's
courtyard restorative project.
A ,special thanks goes to
Margaret Neal who spearheaded
the event. Reportedly, you haven't
seen anything until you see
Margaret in action
Also, thank you's go to Kelly


and Bruce Spencer, Ricky Farmer
and Barbara Lawder fpr the beau-
tiful dining room on Station I
which provides a nice atmosphere
to enjoy a good meal. Much
thanks to Tammy Butler for the
garden spot on the Sun Path. Unit.

Another garden spot is found
at the front entrance. The plants
and flowers that look like that of a
professional landscaper are cour-
tesy of Bruce and Kelly Spencer,
Dawne Sasser and Debra Wall.
And, of course, family member
Betty McArdle always keeps the
inside plants looking bright and
healthy.

All of these and many others
make up a great team at the cen-
ter which makes the everyday
lives of the residents much better
and brighter.

FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D,
President Roosevelt said, "We
have nothing to fear but fear itself."
Along this line, dental phobia is
nothing to be ashamed of. It is no
excuse to avoid dental care, espe-
cially with modern methods that
make any treatment virtually pain-
less,
Modern instruments that
remove decay and fill teeth cause
a minimum, if any, of discomfort.
Yet, an estimated 35 million adults
experience anxiety at the thought


Dental

apprehension

of a dental visit and needlessly
worry about, postpone or avoid
seeing the dentist.
To boost confidence, share
your feelings with your dentist.
Explain about your anxieties so
treatment can be tailored to your:
needs. Set aside a stress-free time
for your visit-a time when you
won't be rushed, physically,,:.
strained or troubled by other con-
cerns. Often a Saturday or early
morning appointment is less
stressful than rushing to see the,
dentist directly from work,
Medications are available to.
make treatments virtually painless.
Relax and you'll come away smil-
ing!


Over the past twelve years, Dr, May and his staff have satisfied
thousands of individuals by delivering state of the art, painless
dentistry in a gentle and caring manner. Can Dr. May help you?

MN Phone 227-2112


By Stan Kirkland
For a few days last week, a
pair of rose-breasted grosbeaks,
half-a-dozen indigo buntings and
several goldfinches hung around
our Lynn Haven home 'visiting our
bird feeder. Then, as mysteriously
,as these birds appeared, they dis-
appeared.
What my family and I were
witness to was something as old
as time itself, the return of mil-
lions of migratory birds to North
"America after spending the winter
months scattered throughout the
Caribbean and Central and South
America. The exodus back to
North America, for these birds
known as neotropical migrants,
began in earnest in March and
will largely conclude later this
month.
Dr. George Wallace, a wildlife
biologist with the Florida Game
and Freshwater Commission's
Bureau of Wildlife Diversity
Conservation, has been involved
Tor years with the study of
neotropical migrants and has
'made a dozen trip to Cuba study-
ing the species of migrants that
winter here. The New England
native began working with the
GFC earlier this spring and says
,..some species travel enormous
distances In their ,twice-a-year
migration.
"Species like semipalmated
sandpipers, red knots and short-
billed dowitchers (two other
species of sandpipers) have spent
the wintei- as far south as the
southern tip .of South America
and are now passing through our
area on their way back to nesting
sites in the Arctic and sub-
Arctic," Wallace said. "Last week I
saw those three species as well as
'a, half-dpzen other shorebird
species on the coast over near
Lanark Village in Franklin
County.
"Species like that may fly a
couple of thousand miles before
they stop, feed and move on. All
told, some of these long-distance
migrants may fly 12,000 miles, or
more, per year," he added.
Other birds like the rose-
breasted grosbeaks that visited
.our feeder are what Wallace
referred to as "trans-gulf
migrants." They winter in Mexico
and Central America and then
make their way across the Gulf of
Mexico before eventually finding ....
their way back to the United
'i,


States and Canada.
Before they begin their ardu-
ous trek back home, Wallace said
it's common for such birds to put
on an additional 30 to 35% body
fat, which is drawn down as ener-
gy reserves as they fly long dis-
tances across open water.
Sometimes migrating birds 'leave
in good weather but encounter
storms or fronts and many may
die trying to reach the Gulf Coast.
Wallace says that occasional-
ly literally thousands of these
exhausted migrants which have
flown into bad weather may feed
and rest along the coast, an event
he said that's called a "fall-out".
Once the birds recoup their ener-
gy reserves, they're likely to be off
again.
For the few species bird
enthusiasts see at their feeders
and as they pass through, there
are many more that pass through
largely unseen.
"Birds like the warblers, vire-
os, orioles and tanagers don't use
feeders and it takes diligent bird-
watching to identify these species


: high up in the canopy." Wallace
said.
Wallace said many of the
species that migrate, especially
those that migrate at night, navi-
gate by the stars.
"They have built-in celestial
compass and leave on clear nights
winging their way back north
using a combination of the posi-
tion of the stars, the earth's mag-
netic field, and landmarks," he
said. "Even the scent of the land
or sea below may provide Impor-
tant cues to find their way back to
their breeding grounds. Interest-
ingly, the moon seems to be rela-
tively unimportant."
While the spring migration is
largely over, by the end of May,
Wallace said some of the adult
shorebirds that first arrive home
in the Arctic and nested begin
leaving in early July for the fall
migration back to South America.
Most songbird species will return
south in September, and October
to complete the migratory cycle.

Hurricanes, Tornadoes, and



Wildfires Remind Us to Prepare


By Bill Nelson, State Insurance
Commissioner and Fire Marshal
With a new hurricane season
approaching, Jerry Jarrell, direc-
tor of the National Hurricane
Center in Miami, recently told a
North Florida audience--"I'm
going to give you an absolute
accurate season forecast:"
After a pause,' he dead-
panned-"The 1999 hurricane
season will, begin June 1 and end
November 30."
He's right. That's all we know
for sure. But the climate signals
are not good. For, one thing, the,
four-year period from- 1995 to
1998 spawned an all-time. record
of 33 hurricanes. ;
For another;, hurricane
researcher William Gray of
Colorado State-University predicts
14. tropical storms will develop in
the Atlantic nin, the. next six
months, 'nine will become! hurri-
canes, and four .will have, sus-
tained winds exceeding 110 mph.
What's more, Dr. Gray
believes there's a one-in-three
chance that one of the severe
storms will slam into Florida.
With the .history-making
exception of Hurricane Andrew in
1992, our state has been spared
from catastrophic hurricane loss-
es ii recent years. But we've been
hit by a number' of storms,
including 'Hurricane Georges'.
sweep across the Florida Keys
and sideswipe of the Panhandle
last summer. "
And 1998 was also a year of
killer tornadoes and disastrous


wildfires. This year, fires spread-
ing through our rain-deprived
state, had already scorched
250,000 acres by the end of April.
Now, with another hurricane
season beginning, is a good time
for Floridians to take precautions
such as stocking up on flash-
lights, batteries, canned goods,


bottled water and other emer-
gency supplies. Concerned homre-
owners also should carefully
review their insurance policy,,
understand its coverage limnta--,
lions, and'make any changes that
may be warranted. -

raise important questions to ask
your insurance agent or compa-
ny. Perhaps you recently remod-
eled your home or purchased
expensive items such as a new
computer or ,entertainment sys-
tem. You might want to upgrade
your policy, if it doesn't cover the
current value of your home and
its belongings.
Here are other steps that can
reduce the potential impact of a
natural disaster:
'*Make .a copy of your .insur-
ance policy and keep it in a safe
deposit box or other secure loca-
tion. You'll need quick access to
this information if property dam-
age' occurs. It's also a good idea to
keep an :inventory, along with
photos or a video, of your posses-
sions.
*Write down the name,
address and claim-reporting tele-
phone number of your Insurance
company, which may differ from
your agent's contact Information.
Keep this information in a safe
place, too.
*Be sure you know what your
deductible Is on hurricane losses.
Most policies now have a hurri-
cane deductible of two to five per-
cent of a home's insured value. If
your property, Is damaged, you'll
be responsible for that portion of
the repair costs. So. to the extent
possible, you'll want to select a
deductible that you can afford.
*Ask your agent or company:
about so-called "ordinance" cover-
age., which allowss you to rebuild
your home to- meet current build-
ing codes in your community. You
may need a special "rider" or poli-
cy addition to cover such costs.
You- may- call our Florida

ly throwing lighted cigarettes out

$500 and up to 60 days In jail. All
controlled fires are severely
restricted and some types are not
allowed during the continuing
drought conditions.
Here are a few simple steps
we can all. follow to help protect ,
our families and our neighbors
from wildfires:
*Do not throw lighted materi-
als out of a motor vehicle.
*Be cautious when starting orn
idling vehicles 'in dry grass-c--at-
alytic convertors. are hot and
could start a fire.
*Create a minimum 30-foot
buffer zone around a house by
removing heavy and dead vegeta-,
tion, yard trash and other materi-
.als that can act as fuel for ftres.
S Clean'' roofs and gutters,
keeping them free of leaves, pine
straw and twigs.
*Do not store combustibles inr
,the garage or near the house. For
example, firewood should be
stored away from structures.
"*Be careful when using equip-
ment, such as lawn mowers.
*Do not use *grills it' an4
enclosed porch or' under an'eave,
and do not leave grills unattend-
ed. -
*Everyone living in a wooded'
area should have 'an evacuation
plan. It should be discussed peri-
odically, and parts of it should
even be rehearsed.

Is Faith Too
Hard for You?

I wil not believe"
?-- John 20:25

fESUS, THE SON OF GOD, has been the subject
9) bf debate between believers and unbelievers
ever since He was born. Every imagination of the mind
of man has slandered and trashed Him for the past two
thousand years, to the utter denial of The Truth of God's
Word. "Without Faith, (belief) it is impossible to please
God." Hebrews 11:6.
Jesus' 30-year life was extraordinary,, and beautiful.
He lived a sinless life as a human being. He came to
earth for the express purpose of fulfilling the Law;of God
thus becoming a worthy sacrifice for the sinfulness of all
humanity.
His life was the most beautiful, most loving, and
most sinlessly dedicated, this world has ever witnessed.
In the beginning God created man in His own image.
Man was created with an eternal soul, like God. And like
God, man is a, free agent, with many privileges. He may
agree with God, or he may disagree. Disagreement of the
Holy Law of God, however, brings tragic consequences.
When Adam, God's first man, and his wife, Eve,
listened to Satan, the enemy of God, and disagreed with
God, they lost the privileges of a heavenly existence, and
had to start "laboring" for their very lives. This also"
brought about a separation from their Creator, and they
lost their innocent imagery of their Creator. This tragic
change bedhme the legacy of all their offspring, including
you and me.
To cover their disagreement (sin), God shed the
blood of animals and covered their sin with the hides of
the sacrificed animals. Thereafter all sin required the
sacrifice of the shedding of the blood of an innocent'
animal.
SJesius came into this world to shed His own blood for
all the sins of everyone who would accept it, for without
the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. (Heb. 9:22)
One day this old world is going to be destroyed.
Those who have accepted Jesus and His sacrificial death,
will be saved, and not be here when that happens. God'
made us in His own image, so we could make that
decision. It is entirely up to each of us. All it takes is to
believe the Truth of God. And faith in Jesus is absolutely
the only way we will avoid that terrible tragedy.

The Open Door
In Acts 10:45 we find, ". .
because the gift of the Holy Spirit
had been poured out even on the
Gentiles."
These early followers of God
had been 'Hebrews. After Christ
came it appeared that God made
Oliver F. Taylor .some changes. We know the
Visitation Minister, First words frbm John 3:16, "For God
United Methodist Church so loved the world ." This did
not say a selected, few, but all;who would believe upon
Christ. '
The Christian church stands ready to accept all who
profess their faith in Christ. We still have many man-
made barriers among people. Therefore, there are many
types and kinds of churches. Sometimes we refer to this
as denominations. We all have an opportunity to worship
Christ in the church of our choice each Sunday. The
doors are open every Sunday in our local churches. We
should all go through one of these doors. Christians will
greet you in the one you choose.

"The Final Episode"
Since February 2, 1989. -.T
have been writing this column for
SWES: andI might add that.it has
been with great pleasure. Ten
years and four months have gone
by rather quickly. I tried to coy.er
the events that was going on at,,
our school, but the most fun I had
was writing about people!
One I particularly liked was
the article about Mr. Kelley. -The
Little Boy Who Sold Peanuts."
Betty Ann Owens said she cried
when she read it.
I've appreciated Mr. Ramsey
and staff, the late Mr. Bandjough,;
and& tfi'Browns for printing our .
1 scha*ul hews. I appreciate the sup-
port of the principals, Mr. Kelley,
.Dr. Bidwell. arind Mr. Wooten. '
I,, also appreciate Will
McLemore 'for giving .our

The WES column will continue

Iridgett Merrill of Enterprise Florida Addresses

rotary Club, Saying, "Quality of Life Your Best Asset"


: "We are the salesperson
which'-convihces a new firm that
they need to' come to Florida and
do business," Bridget Merrill told
the Rotary Club Thursday at their
weekly meeting. Merrill was pay-
itig a visit to Gulf County in her
capacity as' Enterprise Florida
representative, telling the club of
the state agericy's function.
Ms. Merrill said.her organiza-

suasion to attract a new firm to
Florida. "It's u't to local govern-
'r''ment to sell thefli-ms on locating
'in any. one' particular location,"
'. she said.
''I Ms, Merrill has been working
n early full time for Gulf County
ever since the drastic reduction of


its economic base due to the
shutdown of Florida Coast Paper
Company's paper mill here.
"The only direct help we can
give is with getting funding and
permits for infrastructure to serve
any new firm wishing to locate
here," she said. "We can be of
assistance to the city and county
in securing funding for streets,
water, sewer, etc.; whatever a firm
needs and local government is
having trouble providing."
She said the pilot community
program which the USDA Rural
Development is forming here will
help arrive at a prediction of the
future in making the county more
self-sufficient, economically.

ment, and managing for results.
Social Security aced the first four
categories and took a "B" in man-
aging for results.
"There is a strong correlation
between performance and public
confidence in government," Social
Security Commissioner Kenneth
Apfel stated. "When we make gov-
ernment work, public confidence
and trust in government rises. We
administer programs that affect
the lives of virtually all
Americans.,

-This year. more than 26 mil-
lion people will walk into our
1,500 offices across the country.
More than 70 million people will
call our 800 number. You can


imagine how important it is to .;,. ,
have effective Information sys-, '.,
items and financial management '.,,,,
systems so we can handle this
workload. We know our monthly
benefit payments are an impor-
tant part of the quality of life of 50,
million Americans and mil-
lions more who are protected in
case of death or disability' ;
"Our goal is 'to do all of this-'
and more-correctly., to do it time-
ly, and to do it with the utmost
courtesy 'and consideration for
our customers.,. But, it does not
just happen.AIt takes the dedicat-
ed work of the management team
and all 65,000 agency employees .

results," he concluded.

Statewide Campaign Encourages Smart Boat


The Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission (GFC) will
launch a cooperative safe boating
ca4ipafgn this boating season to
combat thie alarming increase in
boating accidents and fatalities.
The GFC, working with the
State Fat~ri Insurance Company.
the Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) and Mothers
Against Drunk Driving (MADD),
will encourage the use of personal
floatation .devices (PFDs), cornm-
n-only referred to as life jackets,
and will remind boaters that boat-
ing smart means boating sober.
0 In '1998, there were 809,160
registered recreational vessels in
Florida. an increase from the
1997 total of 796.662.' With that
increase came an increase,in the
number of accidents, from 1,251
in' 1997 to 1,282 in 1998. Florida
leads the nation in boating acci-
dents and fatalities.
"When you consider the com-
bined number of recreational and
commercial vessels, the number
of suitable boating days. and the
number of out-of-state boaters
who Use` our 'waters," said Capt.
Paul Ouellette. the GFC's boating
safety coordinator, "we believe we
have more vessels operating on,
our waters than anywhere else in
the country, and we are deeply
"" ', -* '. -* .' .. '


concerned about the continued
increase in personal injury and
loss of life that results from boat-
ing accidents."
Nationwide, recreational
boating casualties are the second
leading cause of transportation-
related fatalities, after automobile
accidents. In 1998, boating acci-
dents resulted in 650 injuries and
70 fatalities. The leading cause of
fatality was drowning.
"Nine out of 10 persons
involved in those accidents were
not wearing their life jackets,"
said Ouellette, "Even an uncon-
scious person has a better chance
.of surviving with a life jacket on."
A :second major concern is
alcohol. In 1998, 35 percent of
Florida's boating accidents were
,alcohol and/or drug related.
"The public does not realize
that drinking and boating is as
serious as drinking and driving,"
Ouellette said, "But when a
boater who has been drinking"
comes to shore, he gets in a vehi-
cle and becomes a drinker who is
then driving. Our officers typical-
ly say, 'Our drunk boaters are,
your drunk drivers.'"
There is a bright side, howev-
er. The 35 percent figure from
1998 represents a decrease from
1997 when 51 percent of all boat-


ing accidents were alcohol and/or
drug related.
"We must be doing at least
two things right," Ouellette said.
"One, we're getting the message
out to the public that the problem
is serious; and two, we're convinc- I
ing people that our officers will
arrest people who operate boats
while under the influence."
The State Farm Insurance
Company has donated 50,000 ,
two-tone whistles to help promote if
the boating safety effort through- i :
out Florida. Wildlife 'officers will '
* distribute the whistles to boaters ,
at various public events and while'
on patrol.
The whistles are noisemakers i'
that will also help boaters comply i
with the U.S. Coast Guard, mini-)
mum safety requirement for an
efficient sound-producing device.
A statewide billboard cam-
paign, co-sponsored with DEPR.
and MADD. will present a positive;"
safe boating message. Billboards I'
with images that promote the use',
of life jackets and encourage safe
and sober boating are being,4
placed on major thoroughfares;
throughout the state in areas1,
where boating casualties are high., I
Boating classes are offered''
throughout the state. Locations

"Conserve Wildlife" j
Tag Is Now On Sale j
The "Conserve Wildlife"
license plate went on sale last
week at tax collectors offices .
throughout Florida.
The new license plate features',
a standing Florida black bear sur-,
rounded by palmettos and saw,
:grass. A snowy egret is depicted in '
flight over the bear's shoulder. i
A "Conserve Wildlife" tag'
costs $17 more than a regular
plate. Of that, $15 will be man-
aged by the Wildlife Foundation of;'
Florida, Inc., a not-for-profit orga-
nization supporting the Game and:!
Fresh Water Fish Commission,,
(GFC).
"Proceeds from tag sales will.
be directed to vital and varied ini-
tiatives related to the conserva-,
tion of Florida's wildlife," said L;
Ross Morrell, representative for
the Wildlife Foundation of Florida.
Inc.
"Unlike the. panther tag anql
manatee tag which raise money to'
benefit specific species, this tag
would create a new funding,
source for programs that will ben-
efit numerous species."
The license plate is a product I
of a four-way, public-private part-
nership involving the GFC, the
Wildlife Foundation of Florida,
Inc.. Defenders of Wildlife and the' q
Florida Chapter of the Sierra
Club.


and dates are available from
regional GFC offices.
These programs are part of


the GFC's continuing effort to
work with the private sector and

Beef Producers Launch New Way of Selling Fresh Beef


Beef generates more sales
than any other product in the
fresh meat case. But consumers
are still confused by many of
today's beef products.
In fact, research has found
that 32 percent of shoppers fre-
quently have trouble locating a
certain beef item. If they are
unable to find what they want, 12
percent of those shoppers won't
buy any meat at all.
Gulf County beef producers
plan to increase beef sales and
reduce meat case; confusion with
a revolutionary program that
makes fresh beef easier to shop
for and prepare.
Developed after four years of
consumer research, the checkoff-
funded "Beef Made Easy" program
reorganizes the fresh beef section
by cooking method. "This is more
in-line with how consumers think.
about meal preparation," says.
Polly Golden, Executive Director
of the Florida Beef Council. "Lack


FHP License and

Vehicle Checkpoints
The Florida Highway Patrol
will be conducting driver license
and vehicle inspection check-
points from May 28th through
31st on SR-73 near CR-287, and
SR-30 near Allen Memorial Way.
Recognizing the danger pre-'
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on vehi-
cles being operated with defects
such as bad brakes, worn tires
and defective lighting equipment.
In addition, attention will be
directed to drivers who would vio-
late the driver license laws .of
Florida.
The patrol has found these
clheckpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equipment
and driver license laws of Florida
ensuring the protection of all
motorists.


of cooking knowledge prevents
many consumers from buying a
broader range of beef products.",
The program addresses these.
issues by grouping beef products
into eight cooking method cate-
gories: oven roasts, pot roasts,
steaks for braising, steaks for
grilling/broiling, steaks for mari-
nating, steaks for sauteing, beef
for stewing and beef for stir-fry-
ing.
Color-coded signs and rail
strips separate the eight cate-
gories, making them easier for
consumers to find. In addition,
on-pack .labels provide simple.
cooking instructions so con-
sumers can see how to prepare
any given fresh beef item. "Beef in
Minutes" signage also.helps des-
ignate a section for convenient
beef items, such as beef kabobs,
pre-marlnated products, and


La,


microwaveable beef entrees.
In the more than 60 stores
where the "Beef Made Easy" pro-
gram has been implemented,
there has already been a change
in the way consumers shop for
beef. One store saw a 4.1 percent
increase in beef pounds moved
during the first month of use,
compared to the same month one
year before. Another showed a 7.9
percent increase' in beef pounds
sold.
Meat managers noticed an'
increase in sale of beef cuts that
had not been strong sellers
before. "They also noticed a
decrease in the number of con-
sumer questions, especially about
roasts," adds Golden. "The pro-
gram helped customers make
faster purchase decisions, which
is 'critical given today's time-
pressed lifestyles."

Golden believes the "Beef
Made Easy" approach will have a
positive impact for consumers
and beef producers alike, "If con-
sumers know at the point of pur-
chase exactly how to prepare any
fresh beef item," Golden says,
"they will have more confidence in

their cooking skills and be more
inclined to expand the number

Ask Carolyn

:0. There are all kinds of rinse
agents you can buy for a dish-
w asher. Do I really need to use a
rinse agent in my dishwasher?

A. Filming and spotting occurs
when hard water evaporates
from a dish orC glass and leaves
minerals .behind_ Rinse agents
help miniinize spotting and
filming, and speed drying by
causing water to sheet Off
dishes and glassware. If your
dishwasher has an automatic
rinse agent dispenser, fill it with
a liquid rinse agent. If your
dishwasher does not. have an
automatic rinse agent dispenser
and you are having problems
with spotting, 'you may want to
try using a solid rinse agent.
