This photo shows the future location of Port City Shopping Centv's several business complex.


Center Development Announced
Local businessman George Duren announced plans
Wednesday morning to build Port City Shipping Center on seven
acres of property located on the northwest corner of the inter-
section of Highway 98 and First Street in Port St. Joe.
Duren said he expects to develop the property over the next
year and has set a target date for early summer in 2000 for much
of the Port City Shopping Center to be open for business.
He expects the project's five to six businesses to occupy
approximately 60,000 square feet of buildings. The focal busi-
ness will be his Piggly Wiggly supermarket which w\ill relocate
from Cecil G. Costin. Sr. Boulevard and fill about 35.000 square
feet of the shopping center complex.
A clothing store, general merchandise. and other yet to be
determined businesses will be located within the shopping cen-
ter's main building. A fast food restaurant will also be located on
an out-parcel of property near the main buildings.
Duren said plans were sketchy at this time. but his long term
goal was in place, "I want to help bring better jobs and a better
facility with which to serve our customers."
"1 believe this complex can also be a real asset to the area as
we search to attract new businesses and industry." he added.
Duren said he and Chris Hine. St. Joe Company's Vice
President of Industrial and Commercial Development. have
recently finalized the agreement for purchase of the property. He
also stated that St. Joe was very cooperative and supportive of
the project.
Port City Shopping Center will be the first full fledged shop-
ping center to. be established in Gulf County.

Wewahitchka

Commission

Rejects Bids
Wewahitchka city commis-
sioners decided to reject all bids
received for emergency generators
during the board's regular meet-
ing last Tuesday.
Commissioners .held a work-
shop prior to the board's regular,
meeting, to discuss and evaluate
the bids. They had requested'bids
on up to five generators to furnish
emergency power at City Hall, city
pump stations, and the water
plant.
The board decided that the
low bid was more than they could
afford at this time for the genera-
tors and decided to reevaluate its
need further before proceeding
with the purchase.
The board also discussed a
speeding problem on, Walnut
Street in Wewahitchka which was
brought to its attention by a local
resident.

On tStrker
Steelworkers Vote to Strike Premier


Members of local Steelwork-
ers 14963 voted Friday to strike
Premier Services Corporation
after failing to reach agreement
during contract negotiations.
Beginning at 12:00 .midnight
on Friday, July 16, 34 union
employees of the company formal-
ly went on strike for the first time
since 1978-21 years.
Johnny Ray McGill, union
president, said 85% of union
members supported the strike
question.
"We do hope the issue can be
resolved as quick as possible and
1 .V


we can get this settled," McGill
stated as he discussed his feel-
ings about the prospect for a
quick resolution to the dispute.
Jim Williams, local plant
manager, said the company did
not want to comment about the
strike nor the issues involved. He
stated, "We don't want to-try and
negotiate a contract in the news
media."
McGill and several other.
union representatives expressed
that the real issues involved went
beyond the minor separation

Grant Writer Gets


OK to Go Fishing

Going for $150,000 Boat Ramp IPark Grant


An article in The Star, two'
weeks ago expressed the City of
Port St. Joe's dissatisfaction with
Summit Professional Services,
Inc. (of Tallahassee) as the city's
grant writers.
"It's time to fish or cut bait,"
Commissioner David Horton said
during the discussion at the July
6th meeting.
During a workshop session
with the grant writing firm's rep-
resentatives Tuesday, Lisa Oaks
told commissioners her firm was
not only ready to fish, but had
already been wetting the hook a
little bit.
Summit's representative apol-
ogized for any misunderstanding
about the company's plans.
But, Mayor Frank Pate
,explained that there were no mis-
understandings on his part.
Summit said it would make appli-
cations for grants at no -expense
to the city unless the grants were
won, and prior to the board's 'last
meeting he was told just the
opposite.
After a lengthy discussion,.
the board unanimously agreed to
a revised edition of a contract
agreement which also includes a


cancellation agreement.
Summit's representatives
outlined nine grant opportunities
currently being explored for the
city.
$150,000 Frank Pate
Park/Boat Ramp Grant
City commissioners decided
to move full steam ahead with a
$150,000 FRDAP grant applica-
tion to tackle several major reno-
vations, rebuilding, and addition
needs at Frank Pate, Jr.
Park/Boat Ramp. ,
It certainly has been no secret
that several problems exist at' the
local boat ramp-both with the
ramp itself and channel depth
during low tides. As the area has
grown as a recreational site a
need for additional playground
equipment, improved parking,
fishing docks, fencing for a "tot
lot", and numerous other needs
are also being discussed regular-
ly.
Bill Kennedy, of Preble-Rish,
Inc., Consulting Engineers, told
commissioners he was ready to go
forward with the grant application
process as he gave the board an
outline of the scope of the project

Apalachicola River



Has Many Uses

An Attempt to Decide Who Gets

the Most Attention A Tricky Deal
WE WONDER WHAT REP. BEV KILMER and the Corps of
Engineers have been thinking to make them even imagine they
can dream up a maintenance plan which will both satisfy the
vocal citizens who are opposed to any river dredging and the
Corps, which is dead-get on continuing dredging activities?
One would need more than a modicum of the product in his
gizzard to ever arrive at such a plan as that.-Both sides have
already agreed to disagree! The vocal natives of Florida, up and
down the river banks, have already arrived at the conclusion
that the Corps is raping the river, and its adjoining sloughs. The
Corps, on the other hand, has reams of scientific data, support-
ing its claim that they are merely maintaining the river for com-
mercial use.
THERE HAS TO BE A MIDDLE GROUND, Rep. Kilmer, state
biologists, geologists, and other groups seem to think.
We don't think so.
The way things stand now, nothing will satisfy the local
interests, .but for the Corps to pull up stakes and go back -to'
where they came from. Neither will anything satisfy the Corps
and their seen need; but to allow then to dredge where and how
they please.
With a situation such as this, there can be no winner, nei-
ther the local interests nor the Corps; certainly not John Q.
Citizen, who wants to purchase cheap fertilizer shipped over the
waterway or go fishing on his infrequent holidays.
THE WAY. WE SEE IT, the river is there for all interests to
use. It's there to allow him to use it for cheap transportation. It's
there to allow him' to use it for water recreation when he !so
desires. It's there to allow him -to enjoy looking at its serene
beauty. It's there to provide him with a cool source of drinking
water .
Water is a primary element, necessary for mankind. The self-
ish uses must take a backseat when we go to considering prior-
ities.. The river is there for all to use; whether it is for trans-
portation, recreation. enjoyment, or drinking. No single element
can use it exclusively. ,



Fricassee or Poison

ALLEN LEE "TINY" DAVIS didn't deserve the concern being
vented in the direction of his corpse. He didn't allow his murder
victims any choice sG&hoaowthey\were.-to die. wrquestl.ki whether
or not-he was hurting.them. He just ,blundered-.on-ahead and
continued to bludgeon.a pregnant woman and her, daiighters to
death with little concern about their welfare or suffering.
What's all this fuss about old "Sparky" causing him a little
nosebleed? How do you put a person to death in a humane man-
ner?
Florida's electric chair has been doing a good job of making
criminals all over the state dread being caught and convicted.
Isn't that what it's supposed to do? Isn't the death penalty, itself,
somewhat of a deterrent? It certainly isn't something to be
desired or sought after.-
THE METHOD OF EXECUTION has nothing to do with jus-
tice, It's the penalty for taking the life of another. whether or
not it causes its victim to have a nosebleed.
Should Ted Bundy have been made to suffer?
Should Timothy McVeigh have to suffer? .
Should the several other killers, who ended lives for' no good
season, have to suffer? .
Nobody will argue the fact that they deserved to die. So what .'
is four problem with causing a little nosebleed? No doubt they
suffered nosebleeds while, fighting with other b6ys When. they
were young.
The electric chair is effective and it's paid for. So. why not
use it?,Why not cause'a' little dread at being executed?

This was the Roberts Family

And this FoIurI of .JLOl', week-

Raceland. Kentucky.
I'd heard about this thing ,for
years. About the laughter, the
hugs, the stories, the food, the love
it sounded almost too good to
be true!
I gathered up a road map and


a canteen of water and started
north If there was a Raceland. Ky.
and a family named Roberts. I
planned to swap some stones withL
them and possibly garner a
meal at the same time .
AuIt Jackie gave me a hug at
the door. And didn't seem to notice
that I didn't have any dishes in my
hand. I recovered rather nicely by
helping the couple behind me
"bring in," their pots and pots and
pots .
"Just something special I
whipped up for today," I said to-
Aunt Allene in the kitchen as'I set,
one of the "borrowed" canisters' on
the counter.' The trick here is to


look like you belong.

his family was beautiful. The only

rather early and was snacking
before the meal! That's what I
came forl
Aunt Nell Ruth was laughing
and hugging and writingg down
everyone's name, all: at the same
time Every family'has one! She
.was still "organizing" even after the
reunion was in' full swing.
Uncle Ked and Uncle Franklin
shook my hand and gave me the
big Roberts family welcome.
Leonard and Shirley were glad to

The tricky part, according to

part, and most likely of the oper-
ations to fail, was the joining up
again of the moon module with
the transporter rocket for the

The space walkers faced the
very real aspect of having to walk
home. Likely, they would have
either frozen or starved to death,

Outdoor Summer Barbequing It's Arican Favorit

Outdoor Summer Barbequing It's An American Favorite


Summer evenings and holidays on the
farm meant savory meats grilled to
perfection. You don't have to live in
the country to enjoy that simple plea-
sure. It just wouldn't be summer with-
out family gatherings and great barbe-
cue. The farm families that own Farm-
land take great pride in producing great
tasting meats to make each and every
barbecue a celebration.
The age-old method of cooking over a
fire has evolved to include high-tech
grills and fancy accessories. Even the
simplest grill can produce a great tast-
ing meal by following a few basic
steps. The grill enhances the flavor-by
cooking the meat quickly over high
heat, while smoking relies on slow
cooking at low temperatures with the
flavor imparted from the wood used.


The tried and true country rule for
good entertaining and outstanding
barbecue-keep it simple and have
plenty of food. And it seems many
Americans are doing a lot of grill
work. According to the grilling experts
at Weber Grills, Americans grill an
average of 2.3 times a week. So
whether you are a novice or barbecue
expert, use patience to make your next
cook-out a success. Try some new
recipes to eliminate barbecue blahs.
If you are using a charcoal grill-
arrange the briquettes in a pyramid
shape. You must be patient and let the*
coals bum to proper temperature. Start
about 30 minutes before cooking time
to allow coals to appear ash-covered (in
daylight) or glowing (at night).

ahead of cooking time for the most

If you use barbecue sauce-brush or

School's Out


Nothing To ]
There's nothing to do." How
many times have you heard that ,
from your children during school
breaks? Your creative parenting
skills are never more challenged
than when the children are bored
,and idle. You can turn mid-sum-,
mer vacation boredom into an
opportunity, to have some' fun
and teach them skills that will
stay with them throughout their
lives.
Summer is a good time to
treat your children to a trip to the
beach or their favorite lake to
cool off. It is also an excellent
chance to educate them about
foods that come from the water
and show them howto prepare a',
seafood supper for the family. ",
To make it fun, while you are-,
helping them cook, you can also
share some seafood; trivia. For'
Instance, do they know that fish.
really do sleep or that saltwater
fish must drink seawater to keep
from getting dehydrated? Are
they aware that medical research
indicates that eating seafood
twice per week is good for your
heart?

Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Sciences' Bureau 'of
Seafood and Aquaculture 4eb-
site, www.fl-seafood.corm, for pic-'
tures and more information'
about the various seafood
species.
Children are fascinated with
learning adult "things." Cooking,'
even the simplest recipe,
becomes an exciting challenge to
them. They delight in a sense of
pride and accomplishment when
they are allowed to serve and eat'
their finished dish. To get start-
ed, let your children try their
hands at cooking some of these
simple recipes... ,

between the two parties on wages,
retirement, and contract, lan-
S guage.
"We have given up a lot dur-
ing the past two contract negotia-
tions (six years)," McGill said.
"The company told us. times were
bad and we made concessions
during negotiations-Now the
company's doing well and we


think they should reciprocate."
One union representative
suggested the company was using
the economic crisis -in Gulf
County, to its advantage-"The
first .thing they said when we
started negotiating was 'You know
how the economy is here.'" ,
McGill said company and


union negotiators were close to
having a contract worked out
when they hit an impasse. The
union is asking for a cost of living'
wage increase of 2.4% and the
company has repeatedly offered a
2.0% increase. Some differences
also exist concerning key wording
in the contract and the retirement
package.

Port St. Joe is the only taxing
authority that will register a.
decrease in taxable property val-
ues. Last year's values were $286
million and this year's will
decrease $18.54 million to
$268.46 million. Those figures
reflect a decrease in value of the.
idle Florida Coast Paper Company
mill.
Gulf Front Property Discovered
"We're beginning to see what
happened in Destin and other
areas to the west 25 to 30 years
ago," Property Appraiser Kesley
Colbert commented.
He explained that the largest
increases in property values con-
tinues to come from sales in gulf
front and near gulf properties in
'the southern portions of Gulf
County.
"We've had some $4,000 per
front foot sales along the coast. .
. gulf front property just contin-
ues to appreciate in value-people
have definitely discovered the
Panhandle,'" Colbert stated.
Colbert said other areas in
Gulf County have also seen some
increases through new develop-,
mrent and increasedvalues based
on sales of older homes. "Property
values are just a reflection of the
'market," he said.
Millage Rates Could Fall?
Due- to 'the $78.6 million
increase in taxable property val-
ues, taxing authorities in Gulf
County-excluding the City of.
Port St. Joe-can lower local mill-
age rates and still generate- the
exact same amount of ad valorem
tax dollars. This is commonly
referred.to as the roll back rate.
Local taxing authorities are
just beginning to look at Colbert's

Florida Coast Paper Company?
The status of Florida Coast

major question mark. The school
board has obtained a loan from
the state to supplement its budget
if the mill's owners continue to
not pay any portion of their tax
obligations as they go through
reorganizational i bankruptcy
hearings.
Gulf County and the City of
Port St. Joe are hoping to get
some similar loan assistance from
the state during this budget year.
The county's taxing authori-
ties have tax liens against the,
mill's personal property in the
event they don't pay those taxes,
but that process is on hold during

Situated on the edge of St.
Joseph's Bay with a 25-foot nat-
ural deep-water channel and
boasting access to the clear
waters of the Gulf of Mexico and
the Intracoastal Waterway, the
Port St. Joe Marina has 120 wet-
slips that can accommodate
boats between 20-and100 feet in
length. It also features a storage
facility with 79 dry-storage slips
with a forklift. The full-service
marina provides diesel and gas
fuel, has a complete ship's store
and offers fishing charters and
guide services. A cafe' with out-
side seating is being planned.
Popular boating destinations,
including Cape San Blas, St.
George Island, Apalachicola and
Mexico Beach are within a 40
mile radius of the marina.
Port St. Joe is the site of
Florida's first Constitutional
Convention, and the home of
Florida's statehood. With a
restored downtown center, just a
short walk away from the mari-
na, it provides an ideal backdrop
for visitors seeking to see a part
of the state where natural beauty
abounds.
The St. Joe Company, a pub-
licly held company based in
Jacksonville, is one of the south-
east's largest real estate operat-
ing companies. It is engaged in
community, commercial, indus-
trial, leisure and resort develop-
ment, along with residential and
commercial real estate services.
St. Joe is comprised of two real
estate development arms. St. Joe
Commercial and Arvida, each
with a service component. The
company also has significant
interests in timber, and trans-
portation.

You reap what you sow. It is a
well-known fact that 'this concept
repeatedly proves true in life. But
to Gulf County's prisoners, this
adage has become a literal state-
ment.
"Green -Acres" is what prison
staff and inmates lovingly call
their farm-five acres of land,
located on the south side of
Wewahitchka.
Prison farming is a highly
'accepted practice in Florida's
state penitentiaries, but county
jails in the state are slow to catch
on. Gulf County is the only coun-
ty that farms food for its inmates.
Sheriff Frank McKeithen (who
likes' to refer to Green Acres. as
"Old McKeithen's farm") initiated
the program last year. The sher-
iffs program is virtually risk-free
and saves tax payers money. "I
only wish I had done it sooner,"
states McKeithen.
The farming is done strictly
by the inmates who volunteer to
do so. They travel from the jail in
Port St. Joe every day, during
planting season, to work the land.
While the seeds are growing, they
only work two to three times,
weekly. Then, when harvest time
comes, they return daily to gather
the food.
Appointed to instruct the
inmates in farming is Chief Bailiff
and home gardener Claudius
Lanier. Lanier is familiar with the
different vegetables and supervis-
es the men as they work.
Also, the farm has received
help from Ward McDaniel, who
donated the land, and Whitfield
Timber, who gave them a planter.

JUVENILE CAR THIEVES PICKED UP
On the morning of
Wednesday, July 14th, the Gulf
County Sheriffs Office received a
call from the Fordyce, Arkansas
police force. The representative
said there was reason to believe
that two runaway juveniles from
that location were in Wewahitch-
ka traveling in a stolen vehicle.
Investigator Rita Piercy locat-
ed the stolen vehicle in a Wewa
laundromat parking lot. The
investigator placed the pair of
juveniles under arrest under
charges of grand theft auto,
according to an Arkansas war-
rant.
The suspect young people
were transported to Division of
Youth Services in Panama City,
and are awaiting pick-up by the
Arkansas officials. Recovered was
a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am valued
at $19,000.
IDENTITY CRISIS?
On Sunday, July 18th, Sgt.
Stacy Strickland stopped a vehi-
cle in the Wewahitchka area for
having a broken tail light. While
talking with the driver, the. officer
found that she didn't have an
identification. He then asked the
passenger for his identification
and he didn't have one either.
The driver gave her name and
date of birth, and it was found she
possessed a valid driver's license.
The records check on the passen-
ger showed no driver's license on
file.
During the discussion, Sgt.
Strickland observed a' tattoo on
the passenger's arm which said
"Scotti". Finally, the passenger
admitted his name was Scotty
Linton, and that there were war-
rants in Gulf and Bay counties for
him.
He was arrested and trans-
ported to the Gulf County Jail.
Charges on Linton, 22, of
Wewahitchka, consist of violation
of probation in regard to driving


while his license was suspended
or revoked and resisting arrest
without violence.
SPEEDING WITHOUT LICENSING
Also last Sunday, Deputy
Richard Burkett stopped a vehicle
for speeding along.Highway 98, in
the area of Gulf Aire. Upon check-
ing, the officer discovered that the
vehicle operator, James Simmons
III (23, of Mexico Beach), was
motoring with a suspended dri-
ver's license.
Simmons was written a cita-
tion for speeding and taken to jail
for driving with a suspended
license.
MIS-PLACED TAG, ALCOHOL
LEAD To ARREST
Lastly, on July 18th, Sgt.
Strickland observed a vehicle
traveling at 'a high rate of speed
on Highway 22, headed toward
Panama City. The officer pursued
and caught up with the suspect
vehicle. While talking with the dri-
ver, Cody Hayes, he detected an
order of alcohol about his person.
He also discovered that Hayes
had put a tag on his vehicle that
belonged on a different vehicle.
Hayes, 21, of Callaway, was
arrested for driving under the
influence and attaching a tag not
assigned.

tion received directed the investi-
gation toward Thrasher.

Roy Lee Carter. Mike Lister, and
Wewa citizens have all con-
tributed time and support for this
project.
"Productivity this year has
increased two to one," says
Lanier. "Last year we had a small-
er crop, because we were prepar-
ing the soil," he reports. On
account of the new soil, crops are
not nourished as thoroughly ,as
with previously fertilized' earth.
The most recent harvest has yield-
ed approximately.' 80 to 100
bushels of peas, and more squash
than their small chest freezer, can
hold. In reaction, the jail bought a
larger, industrial freezer (see pic-
ture).
All the inmates are fed with
the fruits of the harvest, which
can include squash, cucumbers,
corn, peas, beans, tomatoes,
onions, peppers, eggplant and
other vegetables. 'This way, the
prisoners can earn part of their
keep," McKeithen says.
A new attempt at cutting meal
expenses is in the works. The
sheriff recently sent a person to a
cattle auction, where a blind cow
was purchased for a mere $26.00.
The defect the cow suffered from
had no effect on the animal's
meat. Now, it is being butchered
and ground into hamburger. This
practice costs only a small frac-
tion of what it would cost to pur-
chase the finished product. "We
are even thinking about buying
some pigs," claims McKeithen.
Most tax payers agree with the
sheriff when he says "The people
like to see the inmates working
and us trying to save a little
money. It's not much, but every
little bit helps."

Sheriff Frank McKeithen, and Chief Bailiff Cladius Lanier.

PAGE 10A THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, JULY 22, 1999


Outdoors in the

Panhandle ..
by Gene Childs
- Florida Outdoor Writers' Association


The sun will rise, the sun will
set, the tides will turn and life will
continue. The news of John F.
Kennedy, Jr.'s death brought back
memories of his father's death and
the uncertainty that entered .into
my cloudless preteen years.
In the days following
Kennedy's death, the world
seemed to stop, and the future
actually seemed in question.
Tempering the uncertainty of the
last few days, though, was the wel-
come news from friends who after
17 years of marriage are expecting
their first child.
In freshwater, shellcracker
beds are still active in some area
lakes. On Lake Seminole, Jack
Wingate says that crickets and red
wrigglers are still accounting for
some nice catches. Bass fishing
continues to be excellent both
early and very late in the evening.
Top waters arid buzzbaits are
accounting for most of the larger
bass. Texas-rigged worms on drop-
offs, holes or downed trees are also
doing well.
In the bay, Eckley Sander says
scalloping Is decent. This is the
expected honest response from
Presnell's Marina. They tell it like it
is. Fair scalloping can be had in
shallower water in the back of the
bay. Catch a high tide and go back
as far as your boat allows. Keep
moving until you find a good con-
centration of scallops.
What is more dependable in
the bay is the trout fishing.
To.pwaters are still producing
when the grass is thin, and shrimp
or small pirifish' under a cork will
get you a trout or a redfish.
The Spanish and king macker-
el fishing is slowly getting back to
normal. Most boats are catching.


both when trolling. Deeper seems
to be the answer this week. Lighter
colored dusters with cigar min-
nows are best. The macks are
holding close over structure and
some anglers had good luck free-
lining live baits. Dolphin are all
over and any debris or weedlines
should be explored.
Red snapper fishing will close,
August 29th in federal waters, but
state waters will extend their sea-
son until October 31st. The new
state limits for this extended sea-
son will be two fish per person with
a 16-inch minimum.
In other fisheries' manage-
ment news, apparently the closure
of the Swanson and Madison area
is going to go through. This sever-
al hundred square mile .area is
spawning grounds for grouper and
permanent home for many of the
males. The closure will probably
last for up to four years while stud-
ies are completed .
The new St.. Joe Marina will
have its grand opening this week-
end. Everyone is invited by man-
agers Richard and Jacque Hance.
Dignitaries will be on hand, enter-
tainment is planned, food will be
available, and the finish of the sail-
boat race from Mexico Beach can
be observed. It should be a day of
fun in the sun in Port St. Joe.
The world today is filled with
increasing uncertainties. Talk of a
new millennium, Y2K problems,
world strife-they all present ques-
tions with few answers. Coming
into the new millennium, though.:
will be a new baby who will cer-
tainly be much loved and cared for.
,Of this I am as certain as I am that
the sun will rise; the sun will set,
the tides' will turn, and life will
continue.

Youth first offenders are given
tough love attention which seems
to be making a difference within
them.
Don Washabaugh, Youth'
Accountability Director for Gulf\
County, spoke to the Rotary Club,
outlining his program and what itf
does for teenagers and under In-
the county.
t Washabaugh said thus far In
the year, there have been about
33 youths to become involved in
the program. Four are being given
attention, by the one professional
and several volunteers at the pre-,
sent time.
The youth accountability"
movement is about three years
old in Gulf County, and was total-
ly staffed by volunteers until


March of this year when they
became funded with a small
grant. .
They have as clients, youth
from teenagers on down who are
first offenders. They have commit-
ted small -crimes which cannot be
ignored by society because they
might lead to larger ones.
The speaker said the youths
have been caught doing every-
thing from smoking to car theft.
One young man actually took his
mother's car, and several others
have been reprimanded for lash-
ing out at teachers.
i 'The young miscreants are
treated mostly with community
service and required to write/
apologies to their victims.
When recommended for reprp-
manding by the operators of the
organization, a youth must spend
60 days at rehabilitation. Of the
33 young persons referred this
year, 30 have been boys and three
girls. Two have been as young as
seven years of age.
Guest of the club was Jim
-Dunigan of Crossville. Tennessee.

with dental x-rays, they call for
more personalized treatment to

Brush your teeth at least twice
a day. Use dental floss daily. Use a

Stween Teeth


Cavities

Ask your dentist about using daily
applications of a topical fluoride.
Avoid sticky, sugary foods or brush
immediately after eating them. See
your dentist regularly for cleaning
and early treatment of cavities.
Decay usually starts on one
. tooth surface but -spreads quickly
to other surfaces. These "tight
squeeze" regions are vulnerable to
decay because food becomes eas--
ily trapped within. More plaque
accumulates and they are harder
to brush. Regular dental treatment,
daily flossing, and nutritional
guidelines will protect against cav-
ities between teeth or elsewhere.

Tnursaay, July 15, at an award
ceremony held at the Gulf/
Franklin Center (GFC). The cer-
tificate marks their completion of
"Introduction to Pipe Trades," a
360-hour training program in
plumbing technology.
George Duren, member, of the
Gulf Coast Community College
Board of Trustees, was present
for the ceremony,, along with Dr.
Lewis Baber, Associate Vice-
President for Career a-Ad
Economic Development att GCCC.,
Eleven other representatives
from the GCCC, and GFC enjoyed
the ceremony and the beef bar-
bejue that the class prepared for


Baber said, "uuil uoast Commu-
nity College is committed to pro-
viding the training and education-
al opportunities that are needed
to. strengthen the economic devel-
opment of Gulf and Franklin
counties."
In addition to being intro-
duced to basic concepts and tools
used in plumbing, the students
have been challenged to brush up
on their math and basic science
skills, as these apply to plumbing
technology. They also have been
introduced to using the computer
and performing job searches and
information searches on the
Internet.
Instructor and master plum-


plumbing, and to study hard to,
pass ,the math and science con-
cepts on the tests."
Mallory arranged two volun-'
teer projects for the men in order
to provide more hands-on learn-
ing. in plumbing. In June, the
group spent about a week putting
in the plumbing for the Blounts-
town Volunteer Fire Department.
Recently, the class has been
working at Port St. Joe High
School gaining ex-perience of lay-
ing out and coordinating a job,
and installing and testing the
work. This i d's' done trunder
MallorY's supervision with help"
fr m George Williams, lab assis-
tant.
All members of the class
agree that the volunteer projects
have been of great value In learn-
ing the trade. Mallory reports that
the men are surprising him with
tlhe skill they have developed in
such a short time.
Dr. Baber indicated that the,
plumbing technology program
would be extended to take the


be offered later.
The college is also looking at
extending the adult welding
course that is now being taught at
Port St. Joe High School, as well
as developing vocational training
programs in other needed fields.
Mr. Duren. said that when
GFC opened its doors with two
classrooms .on either side of .the
administration building,. many
people thought there would .be
one person sitting at a desk in the
administration building waiting
for students..
The opening. of GFC seemed
serendipitous. .considering the
mill shutdown a few months later.
Since the opening of the GFC,
training programs have included
correctional officer training, tele-
communications training, welding
technology, plumbing technology.
and numerous computer training
courses, as well as general educa-
tion cotirses

"Operation Mobilization" Eyangelist


Will Speak at Three Local Churches


Operation 'Mobilization ,(OM)
is an international Christian mis-
sion organization working in more
that i85 countries around the
world. Its U.S. center is in the
Atlanta area; '
OM has 2,800 workers from
miqre than '6,0 nations serving in
Asia, North and South America,
Europe. Africa and the Middle
East. and aboard two ocean-going
mission ships. Doulos and Logos
' 'Approximately 49 percent of
those workers are non-western.
There are more than o500 Ameri-
cans serving in OM. While most of
OM's work is evangelistic, work-
&rs in some areas are also
involved in relief w6rkand refugee
assistance.


Begun in the U.S. in 1957 by
George Verwer, OM has always
focused on training and develop-
ment of workers, as well as evan-
gelism. While some of that devel-
opment takes the form of study
programs and conferences, the
majority is hands-on work in
evangelism and discipleship.
Participants learn to share
their faith through everyday, face-
to-face encounters. They stretch
their faith, learning to trust God
day by day, and get to know Him
in a deeper way.
Nearly 100,000 people have
been trained, many of those join-
ing for OM's two year program
and then working on to other
ministries. In fact, more than 100
ministries worldwide have been

In James 2:17 we find, "So
faith by itself, if it has no works,
is dead." Christianity is more
than words-there is a time when
we witness with words. This is
very important. God intends that
Oliver F. Taylor we tell others about His Son.
Visitation Minister, First Faith is what we believe.
United Methodist Church Works is what we do. James was
simply saying that if we have true
faith it leads to works. To pray for a hungry person is
good. However, this does not fill one's stomach. To pray
for a sick person is good. Sometimes, we also need to
visit the sick.
There are many things Christians can do in our
world. Christ set the example of being a servant. He
washed the feet of his disciples. Praying Christians do
many things in the name of Christ. God has something
for us to do. We need to tune our hearts to be Christ's
;servant.

Extension Notes


Roy Lee Carter

Gulf County Extension Service
Guf un


Galls Are Eyesores to Gardeners


You may have noticed small,
pustule-like growth on the leaves
and stems of otherwise healthy
looking plants. Perhaps you've
wondered what these strange
looking, often round shaped, for-
mations are; what caused them;
and whether they damage plants.
These growths are known as
gall. They're actually quite com-
mon, and no real cause for
alarm. However, some people feel
they detract from plant appear-
ance.
Galls are abnormal growths
that develop on plants in
response to insect stimulation.
This means that. wherever gall-
forming insects lay eggs, or
wherever such insect larvae feed,
you're likely to find galls. They're
usually on the undersides of
leaves, or on twigs and stems.
Each gall is characteristic of
the insect that causes it.
Immature insects are often found
inside developing galls. Galls
rarely cause serious harm to
plants. Still, people seem con-
cerned, or serious about them.
Galls are formed from plant
cells. It's believed they result
from a reaction between plant
tissues and insect eggs to larvae.
The immature insects become
enclosed in the galls, and feed
only on gall tissue as they devel-
op. Although the most common
places for galls to form are leaves
and stems, they may also develop
on trunks, flowers, fruit, leaf
shoot terminals, petioles, and.
roots.
As I said, most plants aren't
hurt by galls, even if they have
lots of them. But, if you're not
crazy about galls developing on
your trees and shrubs, you may
want to know how to prevent or
control them.
Unfortunately, once galls
form, it's impossible to eliminate
them, or the pests inside, with
insecticides. The pests do very.
nicely within the enclosed galls,
wherq,.'.ei".,-ret. protectedd from
chemical applications.
O course, galls on leaves will
drop off when the leaves do. But,


galls that form on stems, trunks,
or roots may persist for several
years. And, if a plant is
unhealthy or under stress, it will
be damaged to a greater extent
than a healthy one.
You can prevent galls to
some extent by taking good cul-
tural care of your plants-by
paying close attention to fertiliza-
tion, irrigation, pruning, and
other general maintenance.
Some galls that occur on stems
and limbs can be hand picked
and destroyed.
Also, several parasitic wasps
attack gall-forming insects.
These beneficial wasps are active
in late spring and early summer.
So, you might want to avoid
using. pesticides during those
months.
Galls form on wide variety of
plants-but, especially on oaks.
Some of the insects that cause
galls are aphids, phylloxera (flh-
LOX-er-ah), midges or gall gnats,
psyllids (SILL-ids), and cynpids
(sin-IP-ids) or gall wasps. Over
750 species of cinipids alone are
found in-the United States and
Canada. And, of these, about 80
percent produce galls specifically'
on oaks.
Well, that's the gall story. As
you can see, there's really not
much you can do about them-
especially if you have a lot of
oaks on your property.
Of course, you can avoid,
killing beneficial wasps, pick the
galls, and give your ornamentals
good care. But, otherwise, we
suggest you relax and take com-
fort in the knowledge that galls
'are not serious threats to your'
prized landscape plants.


WIG Meeting
The WIG 'Board of Directors
and membership will meet In reg-
ular session on Thursday,
August 5. The meeting will start
.promptly at 6:00 p.m: eastern
Sime, at the WIG Teen Cefiter. All
members and directors are asked

Hurricane- Safe


Extension Built


At Beach VFD


Gulf County has now made it
possible for its Beaches Volunteer
Fire Department building to with-
stand sustained winds of 140
miles per hour, should the need
arise.
An extension is being added
to the current VFD facility to serve


as a safe haven for the volunteers
during a hurricane or storm of the
caliber that normally would call
for evacuation.
The structure is 16 x 45 feet
of reinforced concrete block walls
partitioned into four rooms to cre-
ate more support for the 'heavy
duty roof.
Fire chief David Richardson
believes that planning ahead for
hurricane season is the best
defense for the people.
"Now, if there is a bad storm,
the firemen can stay here
throughout the storm and be
ready to respond to any emergen-
cies," Richardson says.
He goes on to say, "I want to
make sure that people under-
stand that this will not be a shel-
ter for the public-just for emer-
gency personnel."
The funding for the project
comes from county assistance
and also from donations. Ten
thousand dollars have. been put
into it and another $9,000 is
expected to follow. The depart-
ment will also 'be installing a
power generator to be used by the
new and old parts of the building.
