Girls Discover Handguns


In Edge of St. Joseph Bay


On Sunday, June 27, two
young girls visiting their grand-
parents and playing in St. Joe Bay
along Highway 98 came upon two
handguns in the marshy area
across from 16th Street.
The girls knew it was not safe
to touch the guns, and instead of
picking them up, they ran home
and told a parent.
At 4:00 p.m., the Port St. Joe


Police Department was notified
and Officer Russell Burch and
Sergeant Butch Arendt responded
to the scene.
The guns-a revolver and a
derringer-were confiscated and
will be tested in order to find out
if they have been used in a crime.
The serial numbers have already
been analyzed to determine if the
guns were reported stolen. No
record was found.

Gulf County commissioners
took what appears to be some of
the final steps to insure Gulf
County Shipbuilding. Inc. will
locate along the Intracoastal
Waterway (just west of White City)
in the very near future as they
approved application for
$700,000 in state roadway grants
and passed a resolution for the
company to be considered as a
state-qualified target industry.
Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director.
Diane Scholz said every Indication
received from, the state thus far
appears to indicate both actions
will be approved and acted upon
in a timely fashion by the various
state departments.
In fact, Scholz said John
Dixon, president/owner of Nekton
Diving Cruises, Inc. (the parent
company to Gulf County Ship-
building. Inc.) has set his target
date for September to begin hiring
the 61 workers needed. The aver-
age wage for the plant's employ-
ees will be approximately $35,000
per year.
It was announced several
weeks ago in The Star that the St.
Joe Company and Guils EDC/
Chamber of Commerce were
working with the boat building
company interested in building
diving cruise ships off the
Intracoastal Waterway. The boats
are not only large, capable of
going out on week long diving
cruises from ports in South
Florida to the Bahama Islands.
but they also. feature, a- unique
SWATH design.
SWATH, which stands for,
"small waterplane area twin hull"
design. consists of two subma-
rine-like pontoons which ride the
main structure above the wave
line, creating a ride with seven
times less pitch and roll than con-
ventional ships.
Site Being Cleared
The St. Joe Company is cur-
rently clearing timber off the ship-
yard site near White City. Gulf
County Shipbuilding, Inc. will be
located approximately one-half
mile west of the White City bridge
along the Intracoastal Waterway.
Earnest Williams, owner of
E.C. Logging, said Tuesday that
his crews should finish cutting
and clearing the 10 acre site by
late that afternoon.
Board Action Paves Way For
State Incentives Package
Gulf County commissioners'
actions during Tuesday's special
meeting formally endorsed appli-
cations for S700.000 in roadway
grants from the State of Florida
Department of Transportation.
Those funds would pave the
roadway and develop infrastruc-
ture to the plant's site.
The board also passed a reso-
lution asking for Gulf County
Shipbuilding, Inc. to be designat-
ed a "Qualified Target Industry".
Designation as a target
industry could bring about state
monetary incentives including up
to $6,000 per employee in credits
and certain tax refunds at the
state level (not impacting the local
tax structure) up to 80%.
Chamber Director Diane
Scholz said she expects that both
applications should be approved
within 10 days, and Gulf County
Shipbuilding, Inc. will probably
move forward with its plans as
soon as possible.
Nekton owner/president
John Dixon said he was most
appreciative of the support of the
county and EDC/Chamber, say-
ing they were very helpful in
bringing jobs to the area within
the next few months.
Scholz also praised the coun-
ty officials for their professional
assistance, especially Adminis-
trative Assistant Debbie Wibberg,
who expedited several important
communications.
"Professional teamwork such
as this is one of the things that
makes Gulf County so special,
and gives us an edge as we pur-
sue economic development,"

Have You Ever Wondered...

What Happened to the 56 Men Who

Signed the Declaration of Independence?
Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tor-
tured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and
burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army,
another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from
wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.
They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their
sacred honor. What kind of men were they?
"lTwenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants,
nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well
educated. But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing
full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.
Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his
ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and
properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.
Thomas- McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was
forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the
Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His pos-
sessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.
Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer,
Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton. At the battle
of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General
Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He
quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was
destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.
Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy
jailed his wife, and she died within a few months. John Hart was dri-
ven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled
for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste.
For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning
home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks
later he died from exhaustion and a broken heart. Norris and
Livingston suffered similar fates.
Such were the stories and sacrifices of the American Revolution.
These were not wild eyed. rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-
spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they
valued liberty more.
Standing tall, straight, and unwavering, they pledged: "For the
support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the
divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our
fortunes, and our sacred honor."
.They gave you and me a free and Independent America. The his-
tory books never told you a lot of what happened in the Revolutionary
War. We didn't just fight the British. We were British subjects at that
time.and we fought our own government!
Some of us take these liberties so much for granted We
shouldn't. So. take a couple of minutes while enjoying your 4th of
July holiday and silently thank these patriots. It's not much to ask
for the price they paid.

The second lighthouse keeper's cottage at Cape San Bias was moved inland Tuesday to join the one moved last week. ,The hundred year
old structures had deteriorated over the years, and one was in danger of being washed away after hurricanes had eroded the shoreline over
the decades. The cottages are being renovated with a grant from the Air Force which currently owns the lighthouse property.


Play It Again Sam; This Time In Tune
ain 'ime I 7zn


I GUESS YOU could call this
sort of a swan song. since it's the.
S last column I will write as an
'active participant in the produc-
tion of The Star.
As of today. Frenchie-and I
are stepping down from an active
role after 47 years and eight
months being continuously at
the helm of this marvelous news-
paper.
When we first took' over on
November 10, 1952, I.had asper-
sions of remaining a gung-ho
editor for at least :50 years.
Circumstances in my life have
caused me to cut short that
quest, short of the goal.
I'm not necessarily quitting
all activity associated with the
newspaper. Willie, who is assum- :-
ing my position at the helm, has
coerced me into continuing to
write these words and the editor-
ial, above. I don't know how long
that little task will last, but for
one day eaich week, ;.l' ,still be
in harness arid churning' but

the editorial will be strictly my.
fault,. good or. bad, whether or
not you agree or disagree with
them.'

THE NEWSPAPER and its
plant have changed considerably
since we first walked in the door`',
those 47 years and eight months
ago. Some of it has been our fault
and some has been in spite of us.
Take the drastic shift to the
offset method of printing, for
instance. That was sort of forced

to re-tool all over again.

WHEN I FIRST walked into
The Star as a business, it had a

production, which turned out
1,500 printed sheets an hour.

The linotype machine is gone ,
now and, taking its place are four.
Apple computers, a Linotronic.

The "Little Giant'; printing


press bit the dust long ago and in
its place are three modern offset
printing presses, all of which run
most of the time, instead of only
two or three days a week.
One prints all the time in full
color, one prints most of the time
in two colors and one prints all
day, every day in living black and
white.

TO SAY THAT I am leaving
The Star is sort of a misnomer.

well until my health started to
give mee:problems about three or,
four, years ago.--Then, no matter
how doggedly I tried, the technol-

What had been a perfect
coordination of my- extremities
on the old Linotype, had. now
begun to desert me and my need .
to. .adequately work .with the
.bytes and nips. .
My coordination just would-


n't work, either, when it came to

dination didn't fail so much as
nobody could j-ead what I, ad

gers to type. "contract" but they,

we can't have that type of activi-
ty.

I GUESS IT'S time for its to
,.step down, while we can still
enjoy being foot loose and fancy
free.
It'll be a major change, not to
have to go to work every Monday
morning, or else the newspaper
may not get out on time that
week. You can bet your.bottom
dollar that the day I set this :col-

petition them. British troops have

accosted us on the high seas. It's
sheer lunacy to fight against the
king and profess loyalty to him at
the same time."

had thought through this many
times. "If we railed against

as an attack on the common folks

Hine'S


Letter


to EDC

Concerning Land
Available for
Development
In May, members of Gulf
County's Economic Development
Committee (EDC) met with St. Joe.
Company Vice President of Com-
mercial and Industrial Develop-:
ment, Chris Hine.
The meeting took place in
response to concerns issued, via
letter, to the St. Joe Company.
about coordinating ,economic
development efforts. During the
EDC members' meeting with Hine,
he agreed to identify developable
parcels of property and assign a
price tag for that property so the
EDC could actively market it for
future economic development.
Below is a reprint of Chris
Hine's letter of response to the
EDC verification of the St. Joe
Company's intention:

merce
Port St. Joe, FL 32457
RE: Commercial/Industrial Land
Dear Diane:
Based upon the meeting we
had on May 21, 1999, The St. Joe
Company is moving forward with
development plans for Gulf Coun-
ty in several areas. But relative to
the specific request of land avail-
ability and pricing, the following is
provided:
1. The St. Joe Company is
'willing to listen to any offer on any
piece of land. We recognize that as
situations arise that flexibility and
adaptibility is the vanguard of
successfully completing deals.
2. We do not think that selling
land to the City of Port St. Joe or
Gulf County for the specific action
of remarketing such land is in the
best financial or other interests of
such entities or for The St. Joe
Company.
3. Given Nekton [boat build-
ing plant announced in this issue

Nursing students from
Tallahassee Community College,
Florida State University, and

Florida A&M University are going
the distance for their patients-
- sometimes' traveling the 1004+
miles to Gulf County to check up
on them.
One student such as this is
John Thompkins, a Minnesota
native attending FSU to earn his
bachelor's degree in nursing.
In his classes at FSU, he is,
assigned certain patients and,
after they go home from the hos-
pital he chooses one and writes a
report on their transition to home
life and the conditions in which
they live.
John was assigned four
patients at the Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital cardiac care
unit. Out of these four, he chose
to report on James Wilson, a five
bypass surgery recoverer whom
resides in Port St. Joe.
Last Thursday, John traveled
to the home of the Wilsons to do
his assessment.


r"Most of the students choose
to make visits within 20 or so
miles from home." Jolm explains,
S"I thought I would come down
here and. if the weather was nice,
go to the beach or go camping at
the state park." '"
John says that the home \is-
its are more like' "community
assessments."
He says that in this particular
report, he will be sure to mention
Wilson's strong base of family and
friends.
John graduates in' December
to, begin' working at TMH in the
neuro-intensive care unit.
According to Mr. Wilsor, John is
"...a really good guy. He .does a
great job with his patients."

Comm. Gallagher Supports

With the release and
statewide distribution of a new
public service announcement,
Florida Education Commissioner
Tom Gallagher expressed his'
commitment to expanding the
reach of the federal .Summer Food
Service Program.
"Summer should be a time of
fun for our school children."
Gallagher said "But for some. the
summer represents a time of
hunger. Our goal is to ensure that
every eligible child has access to
the summer food program, so all
of our children return to school
ready to learn."
The PSA, as well as billboards
arid flyers, publicize' a summer
food hotline (1-800-224-3470)
families can call to find out the
nearest summer food site. The
Florida Department of Education
contracts with the. Florida Impact
Education Fund to run the hot-
liie. which received nearly 750
calls from 54 counties last sum-
mer-a 238 percent Increase from
the summer of 1997.
2 During the regular school
year, 900,000 Florida children are
eligible for free or- reduced-priced
meals through the.national school
lunch and breakfast programs.
The Summer Food Service
Program provides ,free meals to
children 18 or younger in most of
Florida's 67 counties.,, School
boards, camps, private non-profit
agencies, local government agen-
cies, and churches utilize the pro-
gram to provide lunches to eligible
students during summer.
S"Without access to balanced
meals, children'return to school
in the fall with a nutritional deficit
that takes weeks or months to
replenish," said Gallagher. "They
may be less attentive in the class-
room and have difficulty learning.
Summer meals serve as the
anchor around which summer
education, literacy, recreation,
and violence prevention activities
are built."
The Florida Impact Education
Fund released county-by-county
figures demonstrating how wellr
each county is using the program
to address the problem of inade-
quate nutrition among children in
some low-income families.,
'Though we are among the
top 10 states nationally for suc-
cessfully reaching children in
need, the numbers show we have

a long way to go from the just
under 15 percent of eligible chil-
dren that participated last sum-
mer," said Dr. Debra Susie.
Executive Director of the
Education Fund.
The top seven counties doing
the best job at meeting this need
are Hendry (28.4'o), Highlands
(27.4%), Miami-Dade (25.1.,).
Duval (22.50o). Leon (21.60"),
Jefferson (21.5' o). and Hillsbor-.
ough and Putnam (both 20.9'cu1.
Two counties (Madison and
Clay) have sites sponsored by
neighboring counties. Of the nine
remaining counties without a
summer food program, three are
among the counties with a child-
hood poverty rate of 30 percent or
more (Dixie, Holmes, Lafayette).
The Summer Food Hotline
operates weekdays from 8:00 a.m.
to 5:00 p.m. until school starts in
the fall.

Norton Gives To
PSJHS Sports
An outcry from parents and
students alike prompted Gulf
County School Board member
Caroline Norton to contribute a
total of $1,000 to the two most
hotly debated issues.
At the June 8th meeting of
the school board, the audience
consisted of girls from the softball
team, parents of track team mem-
bers and coaches from either
tpam. The requests for a field
house for the track team and
lights for the girl's softball field
were repeated many times before
the end of the meeting.
t Mrs. Norton had originally
planned to use the money to build
a"'scholarship in her name, but
this way, she says, "Everybody
benefits instead of just one per-
son."
Mrs. Norton expresses regret
that the request could not have
.been fulfilled at a better time for
' the local people.
"I think we need a new strate-
gy to accomplish these goals. Not
many people have extra money
now," she commented.
One thousand dollars were
halved and placed in separate



Letter

road will be built into the site. It:
Makes sense to plan for addition-
al users that can take advantage
'of the road and utility infrastruc-
o'ture. Subject to final negotiations,
The St. Joe Company is prepared
to sell sites in this general locale
within a range of $10,000 to
$40,000 per acre, depending
upon size and location of the par-
cel and any particular features
(water access, wetlands, frontage,'
etc.). It is likely that parcels with
SR 71 frontage may command
higher pricing. The St. Joe Com-
pany will reserve the right to har-
vest the trees off of such parcels
in advance or because of develop-
ment activities.:. L
Based upon the land use map
I received from Don Butler, it will
require St. Joe to revise the land
use as well as spending dollars on
planning and engineering for a
business/industrial park layout. I
have been in contact with: one
design firm to get a quote for ser-
vices to perform such work.......
i 4. In addition, for the, right
kind of user that generates signif-
icant jobs in both quantity and
quality, and has a spilloff vendor
effect whereby St. Joe can make a
profit selling or leasing to other
.users, we will work very closely
with Gulf County, The City of Port.
St. Joe, and Enterprise Florida to
lower land pricing to zero, if possi-
ble. This will have to be dealt with
pn a case-by-case basis.
5. For rail served lands upline
from MTI's facility, we will sell or
lease such lands. It is likely pric-
ing will range from S15,000' to
840.000/acre depending on size,
location and attributes. Again. I
think the best alternative is to
have an Industrial park planned
and engineered.
Such endeavors take time and
money, we hope to have a design-
er signed up soon to begin the
land planning process. Likewise,
after such work is complete, a
marketing package will be gener- '
ated that we will be glad to make
available to you and the other',
agencies. If you have any ques-
tions, please contact me.
With best regards,

used to fund the lighting and track field house projects.


accounts tr the 'softball lights
and the track field house. "It's not
much, but this is just a kick-off to
get things started," Mrs. Norton
said of the donation.
Students involved were pleas-
antly surprised. Track member
Joshua Todd comments, "That
was very kind of her."
"I know that she really cares
and wants the best for everybody,"
says softball team member
Candice Kennedy. "This has made
my day."


The teams will most likely'
hold fund-raisers to create the
rest of their needed revenue.
Coach Jim Belin says, "I
thought it was very good. We don't
know how much the school
board's going to give to us now,
but it's a beginning."
(Writer's note: Mrs. Norton
hopes that this contribution will
spur others to give also. The two
accounts are open for donations.

MEDITATIONS OF A
%ounnTrg 3racdr

By LOWELL F. ADAMS
Saved From

Elements shall melt
tithfervent heat. The
earth shall burn up
S -II Peter 3:9-10

E-IE SCRIPTURES TELL US mankind is created
in the image of God, with a free will and a soul that
never dies. He will not force us to decide on obeying
Him. But whether we are children of God or have re-
fused to believe Jesus as our Saviour, our! soul will
live on in eternity. Those who have chosen to ignore,
God's provision for them to enjoy eternity's future,
will be left on earth when Jesus takes His brothers
and sisters to that "home" He is preparing.
The Scriptures that explain the end time holo-
caust sounds a lot like hell to me. But God tells us
in the rest of the above Scripture, He is not willing
that anyone should perish in that inferno. It will not
cost us anything, to be saved from this terrible end. .
It is God's Gift of Love, through Jesus, His only Son.
God's First. Covenant with mankind, His Holy'
Law, was given so that those who kept it would be
acceptable. A few came close, but the sinfulness of
mankind was too much. No one had ever kept or ful-
filled His Law. God said it must be fulfilled, or no
one would be saved. So He made a New Covenant,
delivered to us by Jesus. Under the new covenant
God planted His Law in the heart of everyone. Jesus
came into the world, born as a man. He was tempted
just as any of us humans, but He lived a victoriously
sinless life, fulfilling the requirements of God's Law.
Under this new covenant we are saved by the
Grace (favor) of God, with the only requirement be-
ing that we accept and trust Jesus as our Saviour.
When we do that, we are spiritually born into God's
family, and the Holy Spirit takes up abode in our
hearts. He strengthens and guides, helping us in
obeying The Law which God planted in our heart.
We may, and most likely will, fail on occasion,
but Jesus gave His own blood as a sacrifice to cover
our sin. One born of the Spirit of God never wilfully
sins. But sometimes Satan manages to deceive us.
The heart of any Christian guilty of sin will be sorely
grieved, but the Blood of Jesus covers all our sin.
Why would anyone not accept Jesus, our only Hope?

A Joyful Noise
n Psalm 100:1, we find, "Make
I- a joyful noise to the Lord, all the
lands." The Fourth of July is a
time to make a joyful noise to the
Lord. In America we celebrate our
independence at this time of year.
Otir nation was founded on a
principle of freedom of religion.
However, this religion was
Christianity when the Pilgrims
Oliver F. Taylor arrived on our continent. For this
Visitation Minister. First
United Methodist Church all Christians should be thankful.
It set a precedent for us.
I thank God for our nation especially when I celebrate
the Fourth of July. I get a lump in. my throat when the
flag marches by. In Amerie.we celebrate with fireworks,
picnics, family gatherirfgs' and etc. On this date let us
make a joyful noise to the Lord.

On July 4th, 1776, the 2nd
Continental Congress met in what
is fow Independence Hall and
approved our Declaration of
Independence. Although Benjamin
Franklin, John Adams, Thomas
Jefferson, Roger Sherman, and
Robert Livinstone comprised the
committee charged- with drafting
the Declaration, the main task fell
/ to Jefferson.
Jefferson's greatest influence
and Inspiration for the Declaration
was ,based on a philosophy known
as naturall law." Sadly, too few
Americans today have any idea of
the basis for the greatest declara-
tion of independence in the world's
history.
;The biggest outdoor news. for
the. week is the re-opening of scal-
lop season July Ist. Thousands of
visitors snorkel and, dive our
waters in search of the succulent
scallop, and. indications are for a
better year than last season's dis-
mal harvest.
Presnell's is a favorite gather-
ing spot for launching, and the
friendly people there have all the
equipment and info to direct you to
sudcess. Scallops grow throughout
the long season so repeat trips can
up your odds for a mess or two of
these tasty shellfish.
We, know that here in the
Panhandle are some of the best
anglers in the state, and recent
wipnings by locals in tournaments
only underscores that fact. St. Joe
Beach captain Dave Mullis and
crew on Spindrift Charters won the
Big Bend Classic's Masters
Division. David Rich and group
took a very close second place fin-
ish in that division.
Marquardt's Marina won the
Team Challenge Division for the
third year in a row and retired the
trophy. David May also recently
took top honors in the Indian Pass,
Raw Bar Tournament. Local fresh-
water anglers will soon compete in
the Meet the Beast II flathead cat-

Trolling nearshore is produc-

proven to be hotspots yet. Offshore
fishing remains the most consis-

red and black-with mixed bags of
dolphin and wahoo are reported by
most charter boats.
If the weather stabilizes for a
few days, the fishing will improve.
Favorable forecasts for the holiday

Florida Drops 3-
Day Freshwater
Fishing License
Florida's three-day nonresi-
dent freshwater fishing license
will not be available after this
month. Instead, short-term
anglers will need to buy a seven-
day license.
Susan Weaver, head of the
Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission's Licensing and
,.Permit~tng Section, said the
$6.50. three-day license seemed
like a good idea at first. However,
she said the three-day license has
been so popular with. anglers who
formerly bought seven-day licens-
es for $16.50, it costs the state
approximately S500,000 a year in
'license sales revenue.
"We had hoped individual,
out-of-state anglers would buy
several of the three-day licenses
during the year, and that would
increase revenuei" she said. "It,
didn't work out that way."
The state's new fiscal year
begins July 1, and the three-day
license will not be available begin-
'ning today.
The Florida Legislature will
review all hunting and fishing
license fees and, exemptions for
,possible action next session.
During its review, the legislature
may consider a replacement for
the three-day, license at a price
less damaging to state revenues.

trict IV AA All Stars Pitching
SMachine Tournament hosted by
,Wewahitchka Dixie. Baseball
League concluded last Friday
i night with Port St. Joe taking the
championship victory at the T.. L.

Wednesday Night Elimination
Only three teams remained,
when Wewahitchka and Callaway
(each with one loss) took the dia-
mond last Wednesday night at 7
p.m. (CT) in an losers' bracket
elimination game. Unfortunately,
Callaway got the utipper hand and
took a run-rule win' from
Wewahitchka's all stars to keep
them from continuing in the tour-
ney.'
Thursday Night's Play-Off
Wednesday's winner, ;Calla-
way earned the right to again face
undefeated Port St. Joe Thursday
at 7 p.m. (CT) In a play-off game.
Callaway would have to beat St.
Joe twice to claim the tourney
title.
Apparently the night off on'
NWednesday had a negative effect
on the team members, as' they
were unable to get any momen-
tum rolling in the game, resulting
Sin a 14-4 four inning run-rule
loss. But, as time would tell, they
were not out of the runningl!
Four hits, each a single, were
recorded by Trubias Hill. Dalton
Richter, Austin Burke, and Greg
SFarmer.
Championship Game
In the third meeting of the
Port St. Joe and Callaway 'pitch-
Sng machine all stars the true
championship ,team-Port St.
Joe-stepped up to the plate and
took home the trophies with a 14-
5 victory.
The game was called. at' the
completion of five innings with a
nine run :margin; tournament
rules allow each team'a maximum
of eight 'runs per inning, therefore
Callaway could not'tie or overtake

matched Nixon's duration on the
hill during which he struck out
six batters. He allowed seven hits
and no walks.
Both teams scored early in
the battle. James Daniels single.
on the first pitch of the game,
after which Aaron. Hamm and
Nixon both reached base onri
errors, pushing Daniels across
the plate with the first run.
Next, Chris Shearer drove a
sacrifice fly to score Hamm. These

that St. Joe would put on the
board in the outing.
A valiant effort to build the
score was added by James
Daniels who hit a single and a
double; Byron Jones added two
singles; Stephen Gaddis success-
fully bunted for a single; and Josh
Smith and Brian Bizek each sin-
gled. '
Holmes County's first batted,'
Jeffrey Raines, was walked, then
proceeded to steal to third base. A
sacrifice fly by Corey Pate scored
Raines, then Josh Russell posted
the team's second score on a solo
home run.
In the 10th inning, Blane
doubled to lead off, Marcus
Brewer reached base on an error;
and Jarrod Pippin walked, to load
the bases. Derrick Worley hit a
one-out double up the middle td

At the forefront of preventive
dentistry are sealants, mainly used
to protect children's cavity-prone
teeth. A sealant is a clear or shad-
ed plastic material that is applied
to the chewing surfaces of the back
teeth premolarss and molars),
where decay occurs most often.
This sealant acts as a barrier, pro-
tecting the decay-prone areas of
the back teeth from plaque and
acid.


Children receive the greatest


Sealing-


revents Decay

benefits from having sealants
applied to their teeth, especially to
newly, erupted permanent teeth.
Each tooth .takes only a few min-
utes to be sealed. Most dentists
recommend that sealants be
applied as soon as permanent
teeth come in, if possible. The'
process is without discomfort.
The American Dental
Association recognizes that
sealants can play an important role
in the prevention of tooth decay:
Properly applied and maintained,
they can successfully protect the
chewing surfaces of your child's
teeth. Decay may even be eliminat-

Project, a project focused on the
undeveloped land surrounding St.
Joe Bay.
So far, the state has bought
only a small block of desired land,
which is about 12,000 acres, and
is still in pursuit of almost 57,000
acres. Out of approximately 48:
"groups" of endangered property,
32 of these are listed as' "priority
groups". St. Joe' Bay buffer areas
ranked 13 among these (one being
of most importance).
"We are trying to purchase the
most environmentally sensitive
land adjacent to the waters of St.
Joe Bay. St. Joe Bay is a tremen-
dously nice resource for people
who visit the bay. The water is
extremely nice," says Roy Ogles,
an environmental specialist at the.
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.
Recently, the bay area has
been a prime target for the preser-

"Public Safety Is Our Number One Mission"


By Florida Corrections
Secretary Michael W. Moore
With almost 28,000 employ-
ees, more than 200,000 people in
custody or under supervision and
a $1.7 billion budget, the Florida
Department of Corrections is the
largest agency in the. state of,
Florida and the fourth largest.
prison system in the nation.
While many believe our job is,
to simply supervise prisoner, our
most serious responsibility is to.


C.A.R.L.
from Page 1B
have been only partly successful.
Not long ago, a block of land near
Indian Pass, about a mile in
length, was contracted, but has'
not yet been purchased. Another
area that has been highly sought
after is the Treasure Shores sub-
division. Almost half of this huge
area of land along the edge of the.
bay has been.attained-the rest is
under contract.
Still, the majority of the land
located southward from the'inter-
section of Highway CR30 and
Highway 98, extending slightly
past Cape San Blas, is still listed
for acquisition.
Florida has a history of striv-
ing to conserve its unique wildlife
communities. Ever since Florida's
population boom in 1930, due to
the draining of the Everglades,
people have flocked to the
Sunshine State. The year 1950
began a trend in growth that has
risen at an annual rate of approx-
imately four percent. This four
percent has long been exceeded if
the 35 million tourists that visit
Florida every year are included.
Floridian government has
tried to accommodate this growth
by building roads and developing
wetlands and forests. In the past
50 years, more than eight million
acres (about 24.o of the state)
have 'been cleared as' a result.
This development amounts to the
destruction of the crucial areas
P2000 and its contingent pro-
grams stand to preserve. ...

would add graduated sentences

Contrary to popular opinion,

the building once served as the
Union County Courthouse. but
stood vacant after it was gutted by
fire in 1983.
When community activists

enlisted local inmates to clear'

the classic-looking brick walls.
Many 'tax dollars were saved and,

But the department cannot
benefit the public in ways like this


while at the same time operating
like a large, cumbersome bureau-
cracy. After the governor appoint-
ed me Secretary of Corrections, I
began an in-depth study of our
current organization. In my previ-
ous experience as director of the
South Carolina prison system, I
tried to think like a business
owner responsible to his cus-
tomers and shareholders. I know
Governor Bush and the
Legislature share this philosophy
toward government.
Thinking like that helped me
to save more than $51 million in
South Carolina over three years
by streamlining operations and
re-directing resources. One of the
results was that correctional offi-
cers-the men and women who
put their lives and safety on.the
line every day to protect the pub-
lic-saw a 21 percent pay raise
,during the same time. .
In Florida with ,its, demo-
graphic diversity, our challenge is
different. Governor Bush recently
signed into law a much-needed
plan. to streamline many depart-
ment functions. Our goal is sim-
ple: to improve delivery of services
to our stakeholders while main-
taining our obligation to protect

Currently each of the state's
54 major prisons has its own sup-
ply, purchasing and administra-
tive support systems. We can.
eliminate much inefficiency and
duplication of effort by consolidat-
ing those functions into seven-
regional service centers across
Florida. Then those centers will.
provide support and resources for
the prisons and facilities that
keep criminals behind bars.
Contrary to what some have-.
claimed, no corrections employee
will' lse his or her job or see a:
salary. reductions, as. a result of.,
the realignment of department
functions..Employees are an asset
to be nurtured and encouraged to
grow professionally and personal-.
ly. -
My ultimate goal is to cut the,
fat from the corrections bureau-
cracy, save tax dollars. and put
resources where; they are needed
the most: into the hands of war-.
dens,' administrators and correc,-
tional and probation officers whp
deal with offenders daily.
I appreciate that many coun-
ties and communities--especially
in the rural parts of our state--
depend heavily on the department

This Summer, Children Should Read to Succeed


Even during the summer
months, Vernon Winfrey saw to it
that his teenage daughter-
already an avid reader-read a
book and wrote a book report
each week. Many books and
reports later, Oprah Winfrey
began her broadcasting career at
a Nashville radio station.
Today, Oprah Winfrey-talk
show host, philanthropist, enter-
tainment executive-still spends


her spare time reading.
Many children are also read-
ing in their spare time, even
choosing to exercise their reading
skills through the summer. But
for many of us, when we hear the
word "summer" the next word
that comes to mind is "vacation."
Summer is a time for long
days at the beach or pool, picnics
in the park, and staying up late.


But kids who close their books
along with the school doors can
forget much of what they learned
during the year. Children, espe-,
cially those struggling in school,
can't afford to take a vacation
from reading.
Reading is a skill that must
be taught, supported, and sus-
tained. Supporting children's,
reading activities-even simply


reading daily with a child-,
requires substantial commitment
from parents, older brothers and
sisters, and caring adults such as
grandparents. This is particularly
true during the summer when
hard-won skills can be quickly
erased.
Even without the structure of'
the school day, there are still
lessons to learn. Summer is the
perfect time to capitalize on chil-


dren's natural curiosity and
engage them in activities of all
kinds. Kids can use the break
from school to explore their inter-
ests through books and comput-
ers. But it shouldn't be a self-
guided expedition. Involvement
from parents or other caring
adults is critical to success.
Adults can offer stimulating
experiences to children who want
to read and learn. Whether it is a


weekly outing to the lihtiiry,
museum, or bookstore, adults
who pay attention to children's
interests can make a difference.
When outings aren't possible,
make virtual trips with a comput-
er. Many public libraries, Housing
and Urban Development (HUD),
Neighborhood Networks, or
community centers are wired to

dads continues. That's why the
U.S. Department of Education's

Department of Education's Web
site (http://www.ed.gov/Family/

print the Read*Write*Nowl Activ-
ities for Reading and Writing Fun.
There you will find suggested
reading lists, a reading and vo-
cabulary log, and many activities
for kids and reading partners to
share.
*While you're' on-line, have
kids visit the "Kids' Only" area of
the America Reads Challenge Web
site (http://www.ed.gov/inits/

submit reviews of their favorite
books and read other reviews
from kids across the country.
Kids have it made in the

Growing Ferns


Have you ever yearned tor a
fern? You can easily satisfy that
yearn, because ferns grow well in
Florida-both indoors and out.
There are hundreds of varieties to
choose from. These versatile
plants have many uses, and they

scape design or houseplant col-,
lection. My information on ferns;
was provided by Extensipon
Horticulture Specialist Dr., Robert
J. Black.
Ferns need a soil that's rich,
in organic matter. In fact, they
grow quite well in 100 percent,,
peat moss, or a combination of
three-quarters peat moss and,
one-quarter, sand. But, whatever1:
growing .medium you choose,,
make sure it drains rapidly. Fern;
roots are easily damaged by,
standing water .
Adequate drainage is espe-
cially important, for container,
grown ferns. When potting ferns,,,,
select containers that have sever-
al drainage holes in the bottom.
Never' use pots that don't provide
good drainage. ,
The best temperature range
for ferns is between 70 to 80
degrees Fahrenheit. Most ferns ,
will be injured by freezing temper- '
atures. So, if you live In an area
that gets pretty cold, you'll have
to keep your ferns indoors during'-'-
the winter. Actually, indoor tem-
peratures are usually ideal for,',
lerns, but the low humidity found
in the average home can be a real
problem. -
Most ferns need a fairly high
'level of humidity. You can partial-
ly compensate for low indoor,
humidity by regularly spraying
your ferns with a fine mist of
water.
Ferns need only small
amounts of fertilizer. And, in this
case, more is definitely not better,
because ferns will not tolerate
excessive application of fertilizer.
Plants that are fertilized too heavy
often show leaf scorch. The conve-
nierit liquid houseplant fertilizers,
available to your garden supply
center, are fine for ferns. But, only
apply about half the recommend-
ed amount.
Most ferns prefer partial ,.
shhde. 'Regardless of where- you- w.
grow them, they .should not be
exposed to direct sunlight. Even
Inside the home, where ferns
should be given as much light as


possible, areas of direct sun
should be avoided.
As we said, ferns usually have
very few problems with insects
and diseases. But, they can be
easily injured by insecticides and
fungicides. So, even though your
garden supply dealer can recom-
mend pesticides to use on ferns,
you're better off without them.
If you only have a few indoor
ferns, you can easily control dis-
ease by simply cutting out infect-
>ed parts. To remove most insects,
, just take the plants outside and
'spray them with water.
For indoor growing condi-
tions. select a fern that has some

tolerance to low humidity. A
Boston, or rabbit-foot fern would
be a good choice. A fine, thin
leaved fern, such as maidenhair,
won't do well in a dry atmosphere.
Maidenhair ferns make better
landscape specimen plants.
Asparagus fern is a common vari-
ety that can be used both indoors
and out.

L Tter of Thanks .... Boddve Family in onts


- - -9 9


I am writing on behalf of the
family of Stewart Boddye. My
name is Phyllis Vallejo and I am
Stewart's sister. It was a devastat-
ing moment when I received that,
telephone call in the early morn-.
ing hours of June 4. All the caller,:
my father, could say was, "He's
gone". It was several moments
before he could tell me it was
Stewart.,This is a moment that I
am sure each and every one of
you felt as you heard the news.
about Stewart's tragic death.
:As the family sat through the
sei-rices on Sunday, June 6. we
were overwhelmed at the display
of; emotion, affection, concern,
love and support that flowed from
all :that attended. There were
those who had known Stewart for
I* only a few years, others 10 years,
20 years and even 30 years.
After the services, and-for sev-
eral days thereafter, we were
arhazed at the continued support
that came from everyone; cards
and letters, food, telephone calls
and visitors, all filled with emo-
tional sympathy, comfort, love
arid concern.
'-A memorial trust, fund was
established in Stewart's name to


help provide for his wife. Rhonda,
and. their unborn child; news that
Stewart found out about just the
day before he died. This is a most
cherished gift that he has left
behind with us.
.Newspapers, television sta-
tions and radios continued to
cover this tragic event. News of
other events continued to be pub-
licized; memorial services, bene-
fits, and various fundraising
events. Each day as I visited the
cemetery emotions continued to
fill, the air through notes and
thoughts written on a notebook
that someone had placed at the
site.
Words can never express how
the family feels at the tragic loss
of our brother, son and husband.
Above all, words can never
express how we feel about the
support, concern and love shown
by each and every one of you, his
friends, his extended family.
Be proud to have been his
friend, and keep him in your
hearts forever as he will forever be
in ours. Again, our entire family
sends their profound thanks and
gratitude to all of you.
