Change of Venue

Motion; Filed In

FCPC Iankruptcy
A hearing on the motion by
Gulf County Tax Collector, the
City of Port St. Joe, and St. Joe
Natural Gas Company to transfer
the venue of Florida Coast Paper
Company's reorganizational
bankruptcy case to United States
Bankruptcy Court in the
Northern District of Florida will be
heard Thursday. June 17th in
Delaware Bankruptcy Court.
Florida Coast Paper Company
S filed -a volunary-perttlorin-"for
Chapter 1 1 reorganizational
bankruptcy on April 2, just prior
to Gulf County Tax Collector Eda
Ruth Taylor holding a personal
property tax lien sale/auction to
collect back taxes owed to.Gulf
County's taxing authorities.
Local attorney Pat Floyd. rep-
resenting Gulf County's Tax
Collector, retained the firm of
Stradley, Ronon, Steven & Young.
LLP to file the motion to transfer
the venue to North Florida
Bankruptcy Court on behalf of
Gulf County, the City of Port St.
Joe, and St. Joe Natural Gas
Company, and assisted by attor-
ne; Billy Joe Rish (Port St. Joe's
attorney) and Charles Costin,
attorney for St. Joe Natural Gas
Company.
The motion states that federal
bankruptcy rules spell out that
proceedings should consider the
convenience of [ the parties
involved-in the interest of jus-
tice. It also points out that Florida
Coast Paper Company's principal
place of business is also in the
Northern Florida bankruptcy
Court jurisdiction.
The three listed creditors
have a cumulative claim of just
over .$7 million, which represents
almost one-third of the debtor's
total stated liabilities (outside of
bond payment obligations). ,
The petition spells out that
the second largest creditor-the
tax collector at $5,111,315.95-
and the majority of the remaining
largest creditors, are located in or
near the State of Florida.


There is also no evidence that
any creditors are known to be
located in the District of
Delaware, nor that the debtor has
any assets in that district.
During a telephone interview
with attorney Pat Floyd Tuesday,
he pointed out, "This makes sense
for all of us."
He. noted that all parties
Involved would be closer to the
court proceeding and would save
money and time in travel expens-.
es. "Furthermore, laid off mill
workers-many of whom have
claims against Florida Coast
Paper Company now-could
attend the proceeding and hear
first hand what goes on during
the proceedings," he added.:
If the trio is successful in
attaining the change of venue, the
bankruptcy suit would likely be
held in a Panama City or
Tallahassee federal court.
Floyd said an answer to the
motion could come before next
weekend.

Gulf County Feeling Better


About $1.5 Million Relief

Enterprise Florida Going To Bat To Combat

Governor's Veto of So-Called "Turkey"
Gulf County commissioners are getting better vibrations
from Tallahassee about the $1.5 million in aid that Florida
Governor Jeb Bush vetoed last week.
According to Commissioner Warren Yeager, Representative
Bev Kilmer has reported that alternate means of generating
funds for the assistance are looking promising. A very similar
response has also been received from the governor's office.
Bridget Merrill. of Enterprise Florida, was present during
Tuesday evening's county commission meeting. She stated
that Rep. Kilmer and the governor's staff have been working
diligently to try and Iron out the assistance needs.
The $1.5 million is intended to help offset loss of revenue
to Gulf County by Florida Coast Paper Company's failure to
pay personal property taxes for the 1998-99 budget year. The
mill owners' failure to pay those taxes equals a net reduction
in tax revenue for Gulf County of approximately 29%.
After Tuesday's meeting, Commissioner Yeager said the
county was In the process of attempting to get an appointment
with the governor to further discuss the county's position and
the problems created by the loss of nearly one-third of this
year's tax revenues.
As Yeager stated, "If any large county in the state lost one-
third of their revenues, it would be a catastrophe ... it means
just as much to Gulf County and has the same impact."


Make Requests .

for FieldHouse, DOT In Prdcess of Accepting County Road C-30

ofba Lights To Take on Partof C-30A and Alof Cape San Blas Roads for Maintenance


"We realize that the Gulf
County district is experiencing a
financial crunch right now .
but! .-
Every one of a group of some
half'dozen parents began their'
address to the Gulf County
School Board in the same man-
ner, but it didn't stop them from
inaking requests' for a couple of
items for the board to accomplish,
at Tuesday's board meeting.
Mike Todd started off the
request parade by making his
pitch for construction of a field
house for use by Port St. Joe's
state champion track team.
Todd recalled that at a recent
track meet, held here, the visiting
teams were required to use rented
portalets for rest rooms. "They
couldn't even change into their
uniforms on the premises," he
said. "It puts us at a distinct dise
advantage, not to have.these facil-
iies," Todd said.
Todd was followed to the
podium by his wife, track and
field coach Scott Gowan and Keith
Chiles, each championing this
cause.
Each pointed to the, fact that
Port St. Joe.has been a strong
competitor In track and field for
13 years, including a state cham-
pionship team' for the past six
succeeding years. Gowan pointed
out that this was the longest run,
at the state championship in the
history of high school athletics.
"and we don't even have a rest
room to use adjoining the track
field! he added.
SOFTBALL LIGHTS
The request parade didn't
stop here. A group of five parents
was present to make a plea for the
girls' softball field to be lighted.
Coach Jima Belin was the
leading spokesperson for the
request, appealing to the board to
look for a way to pay for a light-.
ing system," in their coming delib-
erations over the new budget.
Belin stressed, "We have all
kinds of trouble with our game
schedule because we're limited by
the fact that the field we play on
doesn't have lights. We also can't
host a tournament because of the
short days at the time of year in
which we are playing."
Belin stressed the fact that
possibly a set of lights could be
moved from one of the school/city
fields to the girls' field.
He was followed by Cindy
Belin, who pointed to the state
mandate for equality in gender
sports as required by Title 9;
Sherry McDowell who. said, "We
need lights desperately" and an
assistant coach, James B.
Roberts, who recalled the history
of the joint school/city field con-
struction, noting, "It shouldn't
cost over $15-18,000 to light the
girls' field. That isn't much money
out of a $5 million budget."


After years of negotiations
with the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT). It appears
the state is on the verge of taking
part of C-30A and all of C-30E as
state roads.
In 1992, it appeared Gulf"
County had worked out a d~eal.
with FDOT to transfer r maihte- 0
nance of the Overstreet bridge
over to Gulf County In exchange


KELLEY'S ANSWER
Superintendent Jerry Kelley
answered that this isn't the first
year of economic depression for
the board. "We have a list of four
requests, all of which are needed
and will .be done just ?s soon as
the money is made available," he
said.
Kelley ticked .qff the four
needed projects as being the
Wewahitchka High School gymna-
slum floor project, first requested
in 1992. The next was the Port St.
Joe field house project first
broached in 1994. Then came the
Wewahitchka track field both in
1996 and 1999. The Port St. Joe
girls' softball stadium lights item
wvas added in 1998.
"All these projects are equally
important and we're going to do
them; it's just a matter of belrig
able to finance them at this time."
he said. Kelley named a commit-
tee to work on a way to pay for the
requested projects, stating, "We're
already doing two of the projects
although I don't know whether or
not we will have enough money'to
completely finish them. If we have
only enough to get half finished,
then that's all we'll build at this
time," he said.
Work has already been initiat-
ed on replacing the Wewahitchka
High gym floor and construction
of a dual purpose field house, to
serve both Port St. Joe football
and track needs.

Senator Bob Graham and
Congressman Allen Boyd have
announced that last Friday. the
U, S. Department of Education
has awarded the Florida Learning

GET THE JUMP ON LoAN SHARKS
County commissioners unran-
imously voted to support advertis-
ing an ordinance limiting the
amount of interest title loan
lenders can charge on loans.
Commissioner Nathan Peters,
Jr. pointed out that some of those
lenders charge as much as 264%,
interest on those type loans. He
also said he was aware of cases
where local people had lost their
vehicles because of the exorbitant
rates charged.
Following examples of similar
ordinances,, the board will likely
approves an ordinance that regu-
lates the firms and limits interest
rates to 30%qb or less.

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, JUNE 10,


At Long Last!

AT LAST, FLORIDA COAST PAPER is setting a date-or
rather having a date set for it-to let its employees and the gener-
al public know what its plans for the future are. The word is said
to be coming within 30 days.
We've contended all through this crisis caused by the closure
of the paper mill, here, that all the company needed to tell its
employees were its plans for the future. A good number of our
population held jobs dependent on whether or not that mill oper-
ated and the uncertainty of it all was what was causing so much
unrest among the people. Being without a job was bad enough,
but not knowing what to expect in the future was worse.
WE'VE LOST A NUMBER of good, solid citizens along with
their families through this crisis. It wasn't all caused by a lack of
work, either: It was caused by the uncertainty of the situation.
Florida Coast Paper has lost several valuable employees, who
will not return when they start up again. As recently as last week,
there were valued employees, knowledgeable about the: paper-
making business-who left town to accept other jobs. The compa-
ny, had a number of years involved in training some of these men.
It had good reason for wanting to retain their services. But, again.
the uncertainty of their situation here caused many to leave .
for good!
IT'S A PITY THE COMPANY HAS to be forced into revealing
its plans for the future, only under duress. The bankruptcy court
is calling its hand.The owners must reveal their plans for the
future or face being forced into a bankruptcy they' will have no
control over. In other words, they will have their future plans
made for them.
We have always felt that the firms' problems lay more at the
disagreement between its two partners than at the uncertainty of
the paper market. Some other paper mills cut back: some even
took down time. None, which operated a viable paper mill. shut
them down for the protracted length of time that Florida Coast
Paper Company has.
: The local mill was put in top condition by its former owners
before the sale. It is environmentally friendly which makes it
almost unique among paper mills. There is no good reason why it
isn't operating.




"Let's Go To Work!"

OUR CITY COMMISSION IS NOW reorganized, following elec-
tion and is settling into the task at hand. following two years of
uncertainty. Of course, the commission still has more than
enough uncertainty to take care of in the future. There is a corps
of governmental veterans on the job, to take care of leading the
city into the future. They all seem to be of one purpose, to make
the best out of the situation in which the city finds itself.
The commission of the past several years was made up of all
good men, with only good things in mind. We feel Mayor Johnny
Lintonr did the-best he could in his role as leader. We also 'eel he
didn't realize just how, much of himself he would be called on to
give.
WE HATED BEING REQUIRED to offer criticism to the former
administration and its decisions. We hated it because we person-
ally like the former mayor always have always will. It was
our job to do so, so we did. We felt it was the former mayor's job
to lead the commission in biting the bullet and make some deci-
sions because he needed to and not because he wanted or didn't
want to. "
We have a good mixture on the board. with two business men
and three regular citizens. If they can all jell as a group, and work
together, the city will be the beneficiary. .
It will still be tough for a while. There will be many things
which individuals \will want done which, will.have to be postponed
for a while. It won't be "business as usual" by any means. The
road ahead has only potholes in it for the 'iear future. But deci-
sions which can be made now should be made.with the future in
mind and carried out accordingly. Don't spend a dollar unless it
is necessary and then don't spend it unless it will benefit home
folks. They're the ones who need it.
Dr. Jorge San Pedro, the only rookie on the board,? made a
statement which should be adopted by each one of the new board.
It was, ". let's go -to work for the people!"


Hunker Down With Kes


by Kesley Colbert


It's Not A 900 Number


I followed the tragic 'story -of.
Flight 1420 that crashed while'
landing at Little Rock National
Airport with more than a passing
interest. I've landed at only a half
dozen or so airports In my whole
life. Little Rock was one of them.
I know that's a thin connec-
tion. but I tried to remember my
landing and picture the runway as


those folks were hurdling across it.
My heart and prayers certainly go
out to them.
I read the newspaper accounts
and watched the live interviews.
Several different people reported
that prayer was certainly on their
runds and lips as the plane turned
sideways and slid out of control
down, and then off, the pavement.
One lady said people were
screaming. "God, please save us!"
As I digested the events and
side stories that always abound in
such a tragedy. I couldn't help but
think the cry for God is usually
reserved for the last second.
I'm not singling out or criticiz-


ing these folks, please understand
that. I'd say they reacted very
much like anyone else placed in
those dire circumstances.
I Just think this particular
incident sent a message to me--
maybe because I usually don't call
on God until my "plane" is sliding
sideways into the murky abyss.
I remember those little league
baseball games of long ago. Shoot.

triples I didn't need any help. But.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, JUNE 10, 1999 PAGE 8


School Construction Nearing Completion


The much debated half-cefit
sales tax Gulf Countians have
paid for the past 1.5 years is ful-
filling its purpose at long last.
The 4.5 million dollar con-
struction and renovation project,
begun in September of '98, for
Port St. Joe Elementary School is
nearing completion, with not a
moment to spare.
The new : addition to the
school contains six segments, all
of striking uniformity. Each is
composed of four classrooms cen-
tered around a teacher worksta-
I ~iU W-- -"


tion. Each segment will be used
for a different grade, with the
exception of the larger grades, the
fifth class of which will be located
in the wing next to the auditori-
um.
The shutdown of Highland
View Elementary and the result-
ing conjunction of the two schools
into one has only been a happy
coincidence in the scheme of the
project. The inclusion of 90
(approximately) more students to
the facility seems very much man-
ageable with all the improvements


being made. Also, HVE's lunch-
room appliances andi other such
useful equipment will be used at
PSJE. The teachers of HVE will
also transfer with the students
and continue teaching.
The new building is not exact-
ly an "addition", considering that
at least half of the now standing
school building will be totalled
beginning sometime this month.
The only salvageable parts are the
Pre-K wing, the cafeteria, gym,
and half of the front wing.'
The parts being kept are

involved with the erection of the
new post office and the
Gulf/Franklin Center. They are
working with the help of state
prisoners and Gulf County main-


tenance crew.

construction worker, "It's gonna
look and hold up a whole lot bet-
ter than the old building."


undergoing their own reworkings.
Roofs that match the new build-
ing's roof are being placed on
them-roofs that are also badly
needed for practical reasons.
The current library will
become a classroom and a new,
modern library with a computer
lab will be built.
To the dismay of many a
child, the school's playground was
removed to make way for con-
struction directly on top of it. The
school board is currently planning
to form a "playground committee"
with all intentions on providing a
place for the children to play.
However, such additions as the
playground, library, and comput-
er lab, "may not be here for While,"
Principal Catherine Barfield
relays.
The construction has barely
two months left before the school
year begins. "We can do it"
resounds from school officials, in
response to the time crunch.
The school board is and has
been in daily debate over the mul-
titude of issues surrounding all
the changes. Such issues include
the flooring material in the new
building and changing from gas
heating to electric heating.
Another issue still under scrutiny
is the bus pick-up route. Woods
have been cleared in the process
of construction and rumors have
suggested that a route be placed
behind the school and football
field. The purpose would be ease
of access to all three schools and
decrease Long Avenue traffic.
Principal Barfield stresses, "Now,
none of this is written in stone,
they are apt to change their minds
at any time."
Like anything else, the new
building will require some
thought as to current policy and
school rules. For example, "Like
where the children go first thing
in the morning; we don't have
external classrooms anymore.
(And we'll look at our lunchroom
numbers and see how we are
going to do that. Some things
have been said about getting all
the teachers to have a code that
stands germane for everybody,"
Barfield states.
The construction company,
Lord & Son, is a company gener-
ating from out of town. They are
becoming more common in this
,area, since they have' been

101 And Counting!


Hilda Caroline Pattie is pictured above, outside of her home
at Sunrise Bay St. Joseph Qare Center in Port St. Joe.


On May 27, 1898, Grover
Cleveland was president of the
United States and the Spanish
American war was at its height.
But behind all the political tur-
moil, a family in St. Landry,
Louisiana was blessed with a
baby girl. Little did they know that
this baby girl would live to be
among Florida's oldest living resi-
dents.
Hilda Caroline Pattie is now a
,resident at Bay St. Joseph Care
Center. She is a woman of whom
strength can be defined by. She
has just accomplished a feat of
such proportion, very few people.
live to attain. She celebrated her
101st birthday last: month.
Ms. Pattie sits soundlessly as'
a nursing home worker wheels
her into the room, where It is
accordingly silent. She glances up
and sees a young face-a face sits
in awe of a person who happens to
be 85 years her superior.
Ms. Pattie smiles knowingly
and says hello. She doesn't have
much to say, but she answers
questions thoughtfully and with a


hint of humor in her responses.
She speaks of her marriage
with a bit of wistfulness. A hint of
sadness in her voice when she
admits, "The Good Lord never
blessed me with any children."
She goes on to say that it was
for the best, and that God knew
what he was doing. She does,
however, have a sister who lives
back in Louisiana, although
rarely does she see her. She has
lived here in Florida for "a good
long while". Ms. Pattie's memory
is not quite infallible. "I get them
[the years] confused sometimes,"
she reveals. Do you think you
could remember all of 101 years?
Ms. Pattie's health is well. "I
guess I feel good to be 101 years
old," she laughs.
She also feels grateful for her
years and eagerly states, "It's
wonderful the Good Lord leaves
me livin' so long."
Her advice for younger gener-
ations is to "try',to be good to
everybody and live a good life."
Ms. Pattie surely has done
something right along life's path,
and she acknowledges it simply.
"I am proud of myself."
Then her eyes brighten as a
revelation strikes her, "I guess if
you aren't proud of yourself then
no one else will be either!"

honor all the Gulf County centur-
arns. If you or someone you know

have healthful effects on their
owners such as reduced. blood
pressure and general feeling of
well-being. Invest in your health-

(Sheriff's Beat)
BLAZE CURTAILS TRAFFIC FLOW
On Saturday, June 5th, a
grass fire near the Odena Fire
Tower shut down Highway 98 for
approximately one hour around 4
p.m. Fire units from Port St. Joe,
South Gulf County, Highland
View, and St. Joe Beach respond-
ed and kept the fire from jumping
the roadway, until tractors from
the Division of Forestry could cut
lines on its perimeter.
The fire reportedly burned
about 45 acres and was thought
to be caused by lightning. Thirty
mile per hour wind gusts ham-
pered the firefighters somewhat.
Rains have fallen on and off
during the last few weeks, but the
southern portion of the county,
particularly the Depot Creek area,
has received very little and
remains extremely dry.

Fishing-fishing-fishing-
and more fishing. Everywhere you
turn provides opportunities.
Tournaments are scheduled in
Carrabelle for the Big Bend
Classic--June 18th to 20th.
The following weekend is the
5th Annual Indian Pass Raw Bar
Round-Up Tournament on June
15th; then in August comes the
Mexico Beach Reef Association's
Annual Kingfish Tournament on
the 28th. Let's just hope there are
fish enough for all the anglers who
come to our beautiful area to enjoy
what we have to offer.
Freshwater fishing is being
enjoyed best and producing better
early and late in the day. Joe Hasty
from Shiner Diner on the Dead
Lakes says bass are hitting topwa-
ters early off in the deeper chan-
nels. He says that's where most of
the fish have backed off to as water
levels remain low. Shellcrackers'
and speckled perch are also biting
real good. Joe says that catching
fish is no problem if you can get to
them.
Saltwater fishing has been a
matter of dodging -the afternoon
showers lately. Surf fishing Is still
producing a few whiting, but the
pompano are what keeps anglers
in the surf. Around the point at the
Cape is hot right now, and some
sand fleas should get you bit.
Nearshore fishing has been on
and off. For a few days the reports
will have you believing the kings
have arrived, then for a few days
they disappear. The buoy line has
yet to have any appreciable num-
bers of fish arrive. A few cobia have
been caught under the buoys and
a few kings show up throughout
the day-just not with any consis-
tency yet.
Offshore, even only 15 miles or
so out, is doing well. Here, your


chances of keeper red snapper-15
inches minimum-are better and
more kings are holding in these
depths. Wahoo have been boated
and dolphin are schooling over
wrecks and under floating debris.
Greg Fletcher of Indian Pass
Charters says two tarpon were
caught Saturday by anglers from
Ft. Walton who were staying at the
newly renovated campground
there in Indian Pass. The tarpon
fishing in our area will, in the near
future, be one of our most popular
charters. Some of these tarpon in
our area reach Weights of 100
pounds or more, and are a light
tackle angler's dream fish.
Greg also said the bay fishing
is producing good catches of trout,
but the redfish are a bit harder to
catch. Live bait is the key to, most
bay fish this time of the year. Some
nice flounder are also being caught
on bull minnows around the sandy
patches in three to five feet of
water. Fish the bay on.a moving
tide, especially if it falls near dawn
or dusk.
Fishing, fishing, fishing. .Our
area is blessed with all the ele-
ments that make up world class
fishing, but these same assets
draw many, many anglers to an
already popular area, and this will
eventually lead to problems. Many
anglers and civic leaders have rec-
ognized this problem and have
been feverishly preparing for the
future.
This past week, the Mexico
Beach Artificial Reef Association
and the City of Mexico Beach
deployed another 18 reefs using
140 Fish Haven pyramids; These
reefs have a life span of centuries
and will provide anglers-your
children and grandchildren- fish-
ing opportunities well Into the next
millennium.

Did you know that the 100 year
war lasted for 115 years? Here's
something else you may not be
aware of. Your choice of foods and
your eating patterns can affect your
dental health! If your diet is serious-
ly deficient in a particular nutrient,
your overall health--including the
health of your mouth-can be
affected. This is because your body
cannot carry out the function for
which the nutrient is needed.

Eat for


healthy Teeth

teeth, children need protein, vita-
mins and minerals (especially calci-
um, phosphorus and fluoride).
Pregnant women need adequate
nutrients because their babies'
teeth begin to develop as early as
six weeks into the pregnancy and
start to calcify between the third
and sixth month of pregnancy.
Daily, choose servings from
fruits and vegetables; whole grains,
dairy products, protein from meat,
seafood and/or dried peas and
beans, nuts. Limit in-between meal
snacks, especially those that con-
tain sugar. If carbohydrates are
eaten as part of a meal, they are
less dentally harmful than if eaten
alone.

With the arrival of the first 75
inmates to the Gull' Correctional'
Institution (GCI) new annex addi-
tions on May 27th. new opportu-
nities began unfolding for numer-
ous laid off and displaced workers
seeking to hold on to their Gulf
County ties.
Over the past few years, Gulf
County has experienced some
major changes in economic struc-
ture and opportunities for its
work force. Through downsizing,
selling of business entities, and
business shutdowns, it is esti-
mated that over 1,500 local
employees have been directly-
impacted.
Some have experienced
extended lay-offs and uncertain-
ties, while others have seen their
jobs just vanish and cease to
exist.
Through all of this adversity,
N, Gulf Correction has been one of
S the few silver linings in Gulf


County's cloudy economic fore-
cast.,
With the opening of the 1,244
bed annex addition, GCI has the
potential to roughly double
inmate capacity to approximately
2,500. It also has the potential to
employ a total of around 600 cor-
rections officers, administrators
and office personnel.
During the first phase of'
staffing the new annex, 142 cor-
rections officers are expected to
be hired to staff the complex. Just
over 80 of those new personnel
are laid off mill workers who have
just completed corrections officer
courses or will be finishing the
course within the next several
weeks.
As reported in last week's edi-
tion of The Star, no announce-
ment has been made as to when
the annex will be totally phased
into service, but it is. expected to
be the largest' correctional institu-


tional in the state when filled to
capacity. .
Several pictures have been
included in this issue of The Star,
showing what the inside of the
new annex looks like from a per-
spective not often seen-the
inside. The photos were taken
during media day held May 28th
to formally announce the staffing
and manning of'the GCI annex.
See photos on page 5B of this
week's issue.

Plumley Takes On A Mission Roll Out the
T'I7_ 1 .....


Treats Children
In Nicaragua
and Its Jungles
Recently, long-time local
physician's assistant Ken Plumley
went on a very special mission for
underprivileged children and fam-
ilies.
The mission,. sponsored by
Christ the Healer Catholic Church
from New Orleans, Louisiana,
took a medical delegation to
Nicaragua and the Nicaraguan
jungle. Plumley stated that during
his. 4 1/2 day stay he saw over
370 patients, many suffering from
malnutrition, anemia, parasites
and pneumonia.
He and his peers adminis-
tered 'medical care, performed
surgical procedures and dis-
pensed medicines and vitamins.
Plumley describes the experience
as both rewarding and humbling.
He reports that the lines to seek
medical attention began forming
at: 6:00.1i the morning, with hun-
dreds waiting to receive treat-
ment.
Many of the children are
starving and experience serious
pains of hunger. To subdue these
pins children sniff contact
cement which creates a high and
masks the pain. This was
extremely disconcerting for
Plumley and the others.
SPlumley plans to 'return to
Nicaragua at least twice a year. He
was so taken by the experience
that he adopted a one-year-old
godchild. The little girl's name is
Talgy Edith Espinal.
In this capacity as godfather,
Plumley will provide the child
with food, clothing, medical care,
aid an education. Ken Plumley
has been the P.A.-C at Cypress
Medical Center for many years.



Fish Fry Given

On Thursday, May 27, a fish
fry was held in honor of

instructor John Mallory.

bers. The fish fry was'also to rec-
ognize the staff for their role in
students' education.

the plumbing profession for many,
years. Before he began teaching,
-he owned and operated a suc-
cessful plumbing business in
anlama City.
f He is much loved by his stu-
dents and they praise him for
being patient. kind, and knowl-
edgable.

MEDITATIONS OF A
ylLnuntr g racDrer

By LOWELL F. ADAMS


Whose Children
Are They?
"Train up the children
in the right way"
Proverbs 22:6


TIL THE 1800's, churches had the
responsibility of educating the children of America. But
Mr. Horace Mann, a humanistic educator, managed to
get the government to back him in forming the
Department of Public Education, and the education of
America's children was changed from spiritual to
secular. Mr. Mann became known as "The Father of
Public Education."
: Well, you may ask, "What is wrong with the
government operating the educational system." In the
beginning, not much, but Mr. Mann's purpose was to
completely separate education from any Biblical
influence. He did not live to see its fruition, but is has
finally been accomplished. Not only has the moralistic
influence of God's Word been removed from education,
but God Himself has been removed also. This in the
light of God's declaration in Psalm 9:17 "the nation that
forgets Him will be turned into hell."
Nationally, we have forgotten God in many other
areas of public life, and judging from crime and tragedy
reports in the news and on TV, we already have one
foot in hell. The Bible tells us in Psalm 33:12 the nation
whose God is the Lord will be blessed. We enjoyed that
blessing for a long while in America, but Satan finally
got the attention of many of our public leaders.
The education of children of Christian parents
becomes a very serious problem when they are taught
subjects contrary to the Truth of God. Parents who try
to shield their children from these worldly humanistic
subjects, are branded as "book burners" or worse.,
'Whose children are these? Do they belong to the,
parents, or to the state? Maybe the first step toward
them becoming state-owned, has already been taken. I
have been informed Florida Law (No. 232.256) is now
on the books, giving parental rights over your children
to school officials, when your child is in school.
Thankfully, churches are now in the process of
reclaiming their rights in this area, and home-schooling
is more prevalent than ever before.
More power to them. It is about time moral citizens:
of America wake up to what is happening. It is not too
late to turn the rush to destruction around.

Training Class Scheduled for Prospective


Foster Parents or Would be Adoptive Parents


The Florida Baptist Children's
Home in Tallahassee is organizing
a M.A.P.P. (Model Approach to
Partnership Parenting) training
class in Port St. Joe for anyone
Interested in becoming a foster
parent and/or for those who are
interested in having their home
studied for approval for adoption.
This training is required prior to
being licensed by the state.
This training is usually
offered in Bay County for 10
weeks (three hours per week) for a
total of 30 hours of training.
Because of the immediate
need in Gulf and Franklin coun-
ties for foster homes, two social
workers from the Children's


Home will be coming to this area
for a condensed training session.
The dates for this training will be
July 16 and 17 and July 30 and
31 (Friday evening and Saturday).
It is fortunate to have these
social workers give of their time to
assist Gulf and Franklin counties
in providing safe emergency shel-
ters for the abused and neglected
children of our area, as well as
providing Christian homes for
children who have no home.
There are no foster homes in Gulf
County.
This training will be held in
the Family Life Center of Long
Avenue Baptist Church in Port St.
Joe.


SIBlessings

In 1 Corinthians 9:23 we find,
"I do it all for the sake of the
gospel, that I may share in its
blessings."
Paul was engrossed in the
gospel. His whole life was spent
Oliver F. Taylor telling others of the good news of
Visitation Minister, First Jesus Christ. As Christians we
Visitation Minister, First
United Methodist Church should tell others how Jesus
Christ affects our lives.
This will bring blessings in our lives. We become wit-
nesses for Christ when we accept Him as our Lord and
Savior. The blessings come as we live the Christian life.
There is not any form of living better than being a person
who has received salvation. God's blessing to us is eter-
nal life through the acceptance of Jesus Christ.
In the Old Testament blessings and cursings are
mentioned. As a Christian I enjoy God's blessings. These
blessings are available through Jesus Christ.

would probably enjoy just not

Summer Heat Is A Dangerous Thing

Heart Association orous physical activity, damage," he says. tale signs.


People who are physically
active year-round sometimes
need to be reminded of some sim-
ple suggestions for summertime
safety.
SThe American Heart
Association says that whether you
are 'swimming, biking, jogging or
just taking a leisurely stroll, sum-
mer's sweltering heat can leave
you dehydrated, increasing the
risk of heat exhaustion or heat
stroke.
"When engaging in physical
activity in hot, humid weather,
wear light, comfortable clothing,"
says William B. Blanchard, M.D.,
president of the American Heart
Association's Florida/Puerto Rico
Affiliate.
"If possible, work out in the
early morning or late evening
when it's cooler. If you're exercis-
ing in the heat and begin to feel
dizzy, nauseated, thirsty, or If you
develop a headache during the
exercise, stop and find a cooler
place to sit down and drink some
water."
Dr. Blanchard suggests
drinking a;: cup of 'water before
going out in the heat. If you're
active for periods longer than 30
minutes, drink six to eight ounces
of water (about a cup) every 10 to
15 minutes.
A good way to monitor your
body fluid level is to weigh your-
self every morning. If your body
weight is two pounds lower than
usual in the morning, you may be
dehydrated and need to drink


Remember you. may have lost
weight as water, but not as fat.
The risk of dehydration
increases when the humidity is
above 70 percent and the temper-,
ature is greater than 70 degrees
fahrenheit.
"Heat and humidity interfere,
with the body's natural .cooling
process," Dr. Blanchard says.
"The heart is trying to deliver
blood and oxygen to your working
muscles at the same time your
body is trying to cool off by sweat-
ing. If you sweat too much, you
lose important body fluids.
"Then your heart has to pump
even harder to get the smaller vol-
ume of blood distributed to your
working muscles, skin and the
other body parts. Extreme fluid

They are heavy sweating, cold,
