G.C. Building


Dept. On


Record Pace
The Gulf County Building
Department is having another
record setting year, in spite of the
many economic woes Athat have
plagued much of the county.
Building Inspector Michael
Hammond said, "Building has not
slowed : down in Gulf County.
We're already above totals for last/
year and we're still three, months
away from .the end of the fiscal
year."
As;of the end, of June (1999),
$153,863.58 has been collected in
building fees from 1,193 building
> permits purchased. Those figures
are up, 4 1':% over June of 1998,
and approximately $3,000 dollars
'over the figures for the entire year
of 1998.
Hammond had no idea how
much last year's building depart-
ment permit fees would be
exceeded by the end of the year,
buit he had not .seen anything giv-
ing any indication of a slowdown.
Last year was also a record year
for the department.
The majority of revenues have
been generated from. permits for

Shipbuilders Get O.K. From State


New Road and "Qualified Target Industry" Part of State Package

Setting Stage for 61 New Jobs Constructing Dive Cruise Ships


It was announced in the July
1st edition of The Star that
Nekton Industries was bringing
61 jobs to Gulf County to build
dive cruise ships under the sister
company name of Gulf County
Shipbuild-ing, Inc.
Gulf County commissioners
passed a resolution and made
applications for the company to
be considered as a state
"Qualified Target Industry" and
Gulf County be approved for near-


ly $700,000 in roadway grants-
all for the purpose of helping pave
the way for Gulf County
Shipbuilding to locate here.
Gulf County and the Gulf.
County Chamber of Commerce
received word from the Governor's
Office of Tourism, Trade, and
Economic Development early this
week that Gulf Shipbuilding, Inc.
and Gulf County have been
. approved for both requests.
The cruise dive ship plant will


be located approximately one-half
mile west of the White City Bridge
: along the Intracoastal Waterway.
The $683,100 in road grant funds
will be used to construct a paved
roadway to the 10 acre site, locat-
* ed off what is locally known as the
"Old Dynamite Dock Road.'"
Being designated as .a
"Qualified Target Industry" is also
a large piece of the puzzle to pro-
ide incentive for Nektoh'to locate
; the company in Gulf County.


Enterprise Florida has 'been
actively involved in that process,
along with the Gulf County
Economic Development Commit-
tee (EDC), the Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce, arid Gulf
County administrative, personnel.
State "Qualified .Target
Industry" designation could bring
as much as $6,000 per employee
in monetary incentives in the
form of credits arid certain tax
relief at the state level. These


New Post Office: Opens Monday


The United States Post
Office's newly constructed edifice.
located on the corner of Garrison
Avenue and Cecil G. Costin. Sr.
Boulevard in Port St. J6e, will be

A grand opening of Port St.
Joe's mail handling facility is anx-

/Window services at the cur-
rently housed building on High-
way 98-home to the postal ser-

MTI Settles Coal Suit


Lines, Apalachicola Northern
Railroad, and the Mt. Vernon coal
transfer company of litigation
filed to terminate the coal hauling
contract.
Central Gulf Lines and sister
company Material Transfer, Inc.
(MTI) transported coal from the
Mt. Vernon, Indiana company
- location to Gulf County via barge.
The local MTI plant offloaded coal
from the barges and ,onto
Apalachicola Northern Railroad
coal rail cars.
The contract, entered into in
1981, would have expired in 2004
according to the terms of the
agreement. Seminole commenced
alternative rail transportation
when it terminated the agree-
ment.


MTI is continuing to seek new
business for its facilities along the
Gulf County Canal.
ANRR has received a favor-
able ruling from Circuit Judge -
Glenn Hess who instructed
Seminole to honor its contractual
agreement with the firm in a
recent temporary injunction.
Litigation is still pending on a
final settlement of the contract
termination between Seminole
and ANRR.
With the indefinite closure of
Florida Coast Paper Company,
L.L.C., Seminole was ANRR's
largest customer. MTI ceased its
operations shortly after the coal
'shipments halted, and ANRR
experienced major personnel cut-
backs.


According Ito a press release
provided by Material Transfer,
Inc. Terminal Manager Tommy
Pitts, the coal shipment contract
litigation between Seminole
iElectric and Material Transfer,
Inc. sister company Central Gulf
Lines has been settled.
Seminole has paid approxi-
mately $23 million to Central Gulf
Lines, Inc. (a wholly owned sub-
sidiary of International Shiphold-
ing Corporation based in New
Orleans) to settle the contract dis-
pute. All agreements between
'Central Gulf and Seminole have
been terminated as a result of set-
tlement of outstanding contract
litigation.
In December of 1998,
Seminole notified Central Gulf


incentives would not impact the
local tax structure and are taking
place at the state level.
Final Steps
Before construction can get
under way, Gulf Shipbuilding,
Inc. must finalize the land pur-
chase transaction with the St. Joe
Company-which initiated' first
contact with Nekton. A small
scale map amendment will also
-have to go before the Gulf County
Planning and Zoning -Board, and
various permits will have to be
approved.
According to Gulf County
Chamber of. Commerce Executive
Director Diane Scholz. Nekton's
owner/president John Dixon stat-
ed he is most appreciative of the
cooperation the company has
received throughout this process.


"I'm very excited and
ready to move forward
with our Company's
plans." -Dixon

He specifically expressed his
thanks to the county,. EDC. and
chamber, .saying they have been
very helpful in bringing jobs to the
area.
Scholz said the company is
expected to employ 61 workers
with an average wage package of
around S35:000 per year.
During a telephone conversa-
tion. Wednesday morning ..Dixon
said, "I'm very excited and ready
to move forward with our compa-
ny's plans."
He will be in Gulf County
Thursday to personally begin the
small scale map' amendment
process, so the matter can be
brought before the Board of
County Commissioners for review
during its September meeting.


Highway 98 Realignment Talk


Of the County-Beach Access?


"There absolutely will contin-
ue to be access to the St. Joe
Beach area and in many ways
may be even better access," Corr
said.
He stressed that the realign-
ment of Highway 98 and develop-
ment plans along the corridor
between St. Joe Beach and
Highland View Subdivision .were
in the studying and planning
stages, and that the company had
no predetermined conclusions at
this time.
In fact, Corr noted one of the
main purposes of moving.
Highway 98 inland would be to
make for a safer environment by
not having a major state highway
fronting the beach.
"Any development that might
come out of this planning process
should ultimately make the beach
,more usable," Corr added.
He also stated that the public
will have opportunities, through
public workshops and hearings,
to provide input and participate in
the process. Gulf County
Commission Chairman Tommy
Knox made public a. letter to the
board calling for a special local
public meeting to be held in
September.
In the letter, St. Joe
Company/Arvida is inviting citi-
zens of Beacon Hill and St. Joe
'Beach to meet on a yet to be
determined date in September.
The company would present the
goals and objectives of the study
to the citizens of these communi-
ties. The letter also states, 'This
meeting will also give us an excel-
lent opportunity to understand
the concerns of these communi-
ties."
As a part of the study, a pub-
lic workshop is planned for
October, and a public hearing for
April of 2000.
Corr was quick to point out
during the phone interview, "If we


need additional meetings, then we
are more than happy to schedule
those as well. We just hope folks
Since the St. Joe Company
introduced plans to conduct a'
comprehensive plan examining
the realignment of Highway 98 to
Gulf County commissioners dur-
ing their regular meeting two
weeks ago, the subject has swiftly
become one of the hottest topics
going.
Local residents have
expressed concern over accessibi-
ilty to the beach areas, inconve-
niences' caused by rerouting the
roadway, and development that
would block out the pristine
beauty of St. Joseph Bay and its
beaches.
During a telephone interview
with Chris Corr (Vice President of
Strategy and New Ventures with
Arvida-a St. Joe Company) on
Tuesday afternoon, he cleared the
air on some of those questions,
while inviting the public to
become a part of the process.
will give us tie benefit of allowing
us to do the planning before

St. Joe Holding at
5,2408 Mills (-6.1%)
During a budget workshop
held by the Port St. Joe City
Commission Monday afternoon,
city commissioners reached a
consensus to hold the line on the
millage rate at 5.2408 mills.
Because of an overall loss in
taxable property values pf approx-
imately $19 million, this millage
rate will result in a reduction of
city tax revenues of 6.1%.
City Clerk Pauline Pendarvis
said the two major reasons that
the board was able to hold the
line-especially considering. the
uncertainty of Florida Coast

drawing any conclusions It
could even be a better, situation
than 'they now have," he added.
The Star will publicize the
time, date, and place of the
September public meeting as
soon as the details are ironed out.

Wewa Gearing Up
for New Work Crew
During last Tuesday's
Wewahitchka City Commission
meeting, the board discussed
purchasing a 15 passenger van
for the purpose of transporting a
new inmate labor crew for the
city.
With the opening of the GCI
annex, Unit Superintendent
Henry Alford has offered several
,new work crews within Gulf
County. Wewahitchka is interest-
ed in having yet another work
group and instructed .City
Manager Don Minchew to get
prices on the van.
Commissioners also agreed to
ask the Gulf County Sheriffs
Office to investigate a complaint
about cars traveling at ah exces-
sive rate of speed along East River
Road.

The Written



Word Remains

It Took Development of a Common

Alphabet to Spur Civilization to Prosper
SCHOOL HAS STARTED FOR ITS current session, with its
emphasis upon teaching children the three "Rs". One of those "Rs"
was featured in the current issue of National Geographic magazine
and identified as the single most important discovery of mankind.
That single most important discovery is writing!
Even more important than the discovery of the wheel, writing
has been the engine that has made civilization prosper in some
ages and fail to prosper in other tribes or people. It is the single-
most useful tool in the evolvement of the "good life" of civilization
as we know it today.
Lack of a written language is the reason some groups of peo-
ple have never prospered, according to the article. Those which
prospered the most had the. easiest alphabet to use and under-
stand.
THE ANCIENT SUMERIANS INVENTED communication by
the written word, approximately 4,000 years before the birth of
Christ. The Chinese invented their alphabet of characters some
3,000 years later, when their emperor desired to make them a u'ni-
fled nation from the numerous tribes, speaking numerous dialects
and eight distinctly different languages. Even the ancient Mayan
Indians developed a written alphabet [as early as 250 years before
the birth of Christ] which is credited with the development of their
civilization in Central America. '
It took the combined efforts of the Phoenicians, Arabs,
Hebrews and Greeks to develop the Latin root of our alphabet and
writing of today, before the world could prosper with a common
alphabet. It was the invention of Guttenberg's printing press bare-
ly 30 years' before Christopher Columbus discovered America
which made this alphabet and writing available to the rank and
file.
FLORIDA SCHOOLS HAVE RECOGNIZED the importance of
writing in the education process and have begun a program of
emphasizing writing, even above the other two "Rs" of reading and
arithmetic as a tool to "re-invent" the school system to become an
important station in the process of learning.
Writing is even more important than computers.
Writing is more important than history.
Writing is more important than listening or seeing.
Writing is elementary in the learning process. It is elementary
in that it is the means of recording history accurately. It is the
means "for expressing ideas and learning. Writing remains, while
the spoken word may be forgotten or mistaken.


Spending Surpluses

WE HATE-TO DO IT, BUT WE SORT of agree with President
Clinton in his idea of what to do with the so-called budget surplus.
Clinton has given the nation so much reason to suspect his every
word in recent years, that one almost automatically disagrees with
what he champions,
We think the surplus-if indeed, there even is a
surplus-could best be used by repaying the tremendous debt we
have piled up. Who knows, we might want to borrow again!
In 50 years of borrowing money, we, have found that in order
to borrow successfully. one. must also pay back regularly. If one
does this, he, has rnotrouble borrowing when he needs to.
WE DON'T NECESSARILY AGREE:WITH his suggestion that
we bail out Social Security and Medicare with any of the surplus,
or even any other source of public money. They were created to
stand on their own two feet and we think they should continue to
do so, or come, up with another name to call them.
There's no doubt that they need some attention, but not from
the public purse. Paying back the money the nation has borrowed
would go a long way toward bailing these two funds out of the red,
since much of what our nation has borrowed over the years, has
been from the Social Security trust fund, making it the UN-trust
fund:
WHATEVER THE GOVERNMENT DOES with the so-called
surplus, you can rest assured the decision N\ill be to satisfy polit-
ical purposes and not to satisfy the nation as a whole .

We laid on our backs and looked
for elephants and funny faces in
the clouds drifting over head.

Miss Booth and Miss Belle and
Miss Dinwiddle conspired all sum-
mer on new and more gristly ways
to, "get our little heads in those
books."
Come first ,of every August,
Bobby Brewer and I conspired to
run away from it all. We pondered
mightily on an escape by rail, by
foot, by thumb .. We just could-


Bobby had a way of throwing
cold water on our light aspira-
tions, "If we had a place to go to-
we'd a'done been gone."
So, with no workable alterna-
tive, and against our better judg-
ment (to say nothing of the inner-
most desires of our hearts), we
went kicking and screaming into
the upcoming grade.
I know what you're thinking.
I'm going to grow, mature, realize
the importance of a quality educa-
tion, find myself fascinated by the
complex/intricacies that surround
and make up the learning process

You'd be wrong!
Why would learning Beowolf
be any more delightful ihan cut-
ting out Lincoln's head? Do you
think Chaucer was more interest-
ing reading than Dick and Jane? I
could decipher box scores and
count out change, so I didn't care
if Pythagorean had a theory or not.
High school was just a more
sophisticated way to torture you.
I developed a deep seated and
long lasting distaste for early
August. The freedom of summer
was drawing to a close. "Let's play
one more inning. "Let's take
another swim." "Let's catch the
first boxcar headed south."
Anything to prolong the moment.
Slow down the clock!
Nothing worked!
And college was even worse! .
That first August away from
home I thought I was going to die.
Not one professor seemed to care if
you "got it" 'or not. No one. hopped
up at night and fetched me a glass
of tea. I had to make my own
peanut butter and jelly sandwich-
es. I thought of Bobby Brewer-I
had a place to go to .. and I was
this close to leaving eight,-lundred

I wasn't going back the next

Foreign Legion would be better
than this. A daily poke in the eye
with a sharp stick would be a pic-

purgatory ...
It was the quickest summer:6f
my life. And what unseen force
pushed me back for my sophomore
year is beyond all comprehension .

I haven't faced: an August-
back-to-school-anguish, in thirty
years. But my mind won't let go. I
still get that queasy, the fun's over

Smudgie Gets Prepared to Endure the Scorching Weather


I AM NOT ABOUT to be out-
,done in this subject. I am going to
write about the weather, too! It's,
too good an opportunity to pass
up. It's a subject made to order for'
column writing; one everyone is
interested in.
Almost to a man, people are
complaining about the weather,
but as Mark Twain said, "Nobody.
does anything about it!" I guess
the reason nobody does anything
about the weather is because
nobody can. God's- in charge of
this portion of the universe,
there's no question about it.
There's no sense in complaining
about the weather, whether it's
hot, cold, dry or wet. Just take it,
as it comes; grin and bear' it.
Hot weather makes some folks
happy and other folks miserable.
It makes me miserable, along with
most of you. I can sweat along
with the best of you.
Of the hot and cold weather,
I'll take the cold. It's a lot easier


keeping warm than it is keeping
cool.

SMUDGIE HAD HER warm
weather haircut just before God
turned on the blast furnace in
earnest about 10 days ago.
She went to, the "poodle par-
lor" and had her hair "done", just
as her human counterparts do.
She strutted around, showing off
her new "do" for a couple of days.
What is there about females
which makes them self-satisfied
creatures for a few days after they
have just had their hair done?
Smudgie is just as bad.


She is also just as ready to go
to the poodle beauty parlor as any
human female is eager to go to the
beauty shop for a "make-over".
Smudgie got one of those
close-cropped .hair cuts to make
her more comfortable during these
hot days we have been having. She
lays under the ceiling fan in her
short hair cut, basking in the cool
breezes and snoozing in comfort.
She has even sworn off chas-
ing squirrels until the month of
October rolls around.

THIS HOT WEATHER
reminds me of the days I spent in


my childhood in Oklahoifia. Now;$-
there.was "HOT"!
Back in -the 30s, "BAC" .,
that's Before Air Conditioning, it"
really got hot It even seemed hot
to us kids and you know it hardly
gets too hot for kids! .
We'd strip down to a pair of
cut-off overalls and nothing else.
No shirt, no shoes, no underwear. -
. only the cut off overalls.
That was the uniform whether
we were playing the eternal game
of baseball, tennis, roaming the
woods or going to church. It didn't
change. They were the "cut off
jeans" of the era:.
All the streets around. the little
town we lived in was only made of
dirt,, so we didn't have the blister--
ing asphalt to contend with. Only
the big towns had paved streets.
It might be interesting to note
that I went back to that section of
Oklahoma in 1963 and even then, .
main highways were still made
only of gravel. Not all of them, but


there were some numbered high-
ways which were paved only with
Gravel.

BUT, NOW THAT Oklahoma
.heat in the dry' summer time was
an experience!. The creeks and
streams: dried up to a dust bed.
Dust storms were prevalent. Water
wa,'valuable.
The town water system would
go dry and people would have to
depend on deep wells and cisterns
for their water supply. I hear it's
not like that anymore. A water
reclamation program and water
conservation has changed all that.
The little town we lived in
caught fire one July and nearly all
burned down because there was
no water to put it out with. An
entire block of business houses
burned down. Of course, they
were practically all vacant, but
they burned down.
The fire truck came from
Drumwright, seven miles away


and it was said it took more water
for the fire truck when it finally
puffed into town, than it did to put
the fire out.

I'M KEEPING COOL these
days by making Florida Power
rich!
My air conditioner is doing its
duty and keeping my house rea-
sonably cool, as I'm sure it is with
the rest of you, too. You just make
an ugly face and manage to pay
that bill one day a month and bask
in the cooling breezes for the other
29 or 30 days..
The ancient Romans put one
over on us back when they made
up our calendar. 'Notice all the
oppressively hot months have 31
days in them. They not only seem
to last longer, they actually -are
longer!
We never used the Wet lettuce
leaf under our caps, though. It
was so hot the lettuce wilted
before we could utilize it!

When Do You Need A
Building Permit?
Hammond pointed out that
he knew there was some confu-
sion as to when a building permit
is, or is not, required for property
owners. to build, add on, or
improve their residence.
Building permits are required
to build any structure over 10' by
10' (covered) or structures that
cost over $1,000. Uncovered
decks up to 200 square feet also
do not require permitting. All con-
struction also must meet property

GCI Escapee Captured After

Joint Search by Area Agencies


Department of Corrections
personnel and several area law'
enforcement agencies joined
forces late last week to capture
escaped Gulf Correctional
Institution inmate Miles Gloss, Jr.
Gloss broke loose Wednesday,
August 4th, after striking a main-,
tenance employee with a metal
pipe and tying him up in addition
to another maintenance worker
and taking their wallets- and keys
to a 1992 Dodge pick-up truck.
The escapee fled from Gulf
Correctional Institution (GCI) in
the truck and a, massive.manhunt
ensued.
GCI Superintendent Henry
Alford reported the Department of
Corrections received excellent and
immediate assistance from Gulf
County, Calhoun County, Frank-
lin County, Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion, Florida Highway Patrol, and
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement. Helicopters from

Wewahitchka whose cards have'
expired should bring the neces-
sary papers on that day to recer-

Bay, Jackson, and Calhoun coun-
ties also participated in the
search.
Alford said Gloss eluded
search teams until Friday when
information was received that
narrowed his location. During the
day Saturday, his location was
pinpointed by AT&T phone com-
pany assistance while tracing a
call from Gloss to a cottage off.
Cypress Point Road.
The prisoner was arrested at
approximately 5:00 p.m. Satur-
day afternoon just inside the.
Calhoun County line, approxi-
mately 10 miles north of GCI's
compound. Gloss had hidden the
getaway truck in a wooded area in
Gulf County about two miles from
the cottage along Dead Lakes.
Gloss faces a host of charges
stemming from the escape which'
include escape, kidnapping,
grand theft auto, car jacking, and
battery on a law enforcement offi-
cer. He was, serving a four year, 10
month sentence for grand theft.

of cloning to the Rotary Club last
Thursday, which has been prac-
ticed for a number of
years-cloning of plants as a
means of propagation.
The method of cloning plants
is rewarding in the number of
resistant plants one can obtain,
but it is also a rewarding hobby,
as it is with Joe.
To clone plants successfully,
it takes a good deal of intricate
preparation, but the results are
plants with susceptibility to few
spores, fungi or other natural
enemies. It also results in plants
of desired color patterns, since
what you started with is what you
get.
Danford said only a sliver of a
'leaf from the parent plant is nec-
essary to clone another. Because
of this practice, you can produce
numerous violet plants, for
instance, from just one leaf which

Writers usually get comments
'about what they write, but rarely
'about'what they don't write. That
was the case, though, this past
week. "We enjoy your light-hearted
satire on the faults and mis-adven-
tures around us here in the
Panhandle. Your poking fun at Ma
*Bell, the building inspectors, the
canal and such are things that
!need to be said," said several read-
'ers over breakfast at Sharon's this
.past weekend.
"Why don't you get :on your
soapbox and dish out some more?"
Well, some weeks do go~by without
lfeelihn tLhe need to 1lo q,4-1ut'fif I'
'did need a soapbox, .1 'sure know
"where to find one.
The big news in the Panhandle
is still the fish kill from Mexico
S Beach to St. Joe Bay. The first
flush of dead fish appeared about
-two weeks ago, and marine biolo-
'gists attributed the kill to low lev-
els of oxygen in the waters. The
abnormally high temperatures and
lack of wind or rainstorms that
'help oxygenate the water were the
causes they said, but as late as
Friday arid Saturday of last week,
more fish were dying.
Returning from an offshore
trip Friday, we began spotting
..dead and dying fish about a mile
.out from the Mexico Beach canal.
Some were still moving but were
obviously dying. Disturbing was
the fact that many of the fish were
juvenile trout and redfish.
Fisheries' personnel assure us that
a few storms and cooler weather
will correct the problem. Hopefully
the storms the last few days have
helped.
Freshwater fishing is still
plugging along despite the heat.
.Fishing early or late is both more
productive and comfortable. The
bream and bass fishing is still
quite good. Rod and reeling for cat-
fish is a dog day delight at night.
Chicken livers or a gob of worms
seems to be the favorite bait.
Eating size bream are the choice
bait for the big flatheads.
Jack Wingate on Seminole
reports good striper fishing early
and late. The birds are what
anglers look for. Chrome Rat-L-
Traps with a blue back are popu-
lar.
Saltwater fishing remains a bit
sparse on some days. Schools of
Spanish feed early along the
beaches then quickly leave for
cooler, deeper water as the sun
heats up. The kings have stayed
7


offshore in 60 foot or deeper water.
The sites even further offshore are
more dependable.
Finicky-biting kings will usu-
ally hit live baits free-lined over
structures. Spending an hour
around the buoys with Sabiki rigs
is definitely worth the time.
Chumming in combination with
live baits ups your odds for a hook-
up tenfold and can turn a slow day
into a Kodak day.
Redsnapper and grouper are
still dependable on deepwater
structures. Again, live bait is the
key to success. Lfght line or the
ne-;.Iluro-carbon. lines cail give la
'big edge to anglers fishing spots
where fish have seen a lot of pres-
sure.
The storms seem to have bro-
ken the back of the heat wave, but
a friend's catch of a rainbow "run-
ner, a rather rare fish for our area,
underlined just how hot our water
.temperatures had gotten. The
rainbow runAier is a true tropical
fish and usually found in waters
around such exotic locales as
Peru, Columbia, Baja, California
or the Galapagas Islands. Catching
one here is a real prize.
The color pattern is one of the
most unique in all saltWater fish.
The back is greenish-blue; high on
the sides is a broad, dark blue
stripe, followed in succession
down the sides by a narrow light
blue stripe, a broader cadmium-
yellow stripe, and another narrow
light blue stripe; the remaining
third of the sides and belly are
white ,or yellowish-silver. To top it
off, its fins are tipped with a green -
ish-yellow tint.
As if this wasn't enough, it's a
real fighter' and also delectable
table fare. Part of the' fun of salt-
water fishing is that y'ou never
know what- you'll catch or see.
Persistent persuasion by
friends convinced me to climb
back on the proverbial ,soapbox,
but I was in need of a soapbox.
That proved to be absolutely no
problem.
In fact, if you are in need of a
soapbox, an icebox, old lumber,
broken wheelbarrows, discarded
hotwater heaters, fencing or fire-
wood, just ride around the back
streets along the beaches and just
help yourself. Better check your
calendar, though, because you'll
need to get your soapbox before
the next blue moon-that's'pick-
up day.

Hiring People I
The Department of Labor
and Employment Security's
Division of Vocational Rehabili-
tation (VR) has formed a public-
private partnership with the
Business Advisory Councils
(BAC) in Lee, Manatee and
Sarasota counties. Secretary
Maty' B. Hooks says, "It is the
department's goal to support
public-private partnerships, and
Business Advisory Councils are
an excellent means of accom-
plishing the .goal. Since it's been
so successful in Lee, Manatee
'and Sarasota, these counties can
serve as models for the entire
State of Florida."
The 'Business Advisory
-Councils consists of employers
who advise Vocational
Rehabilitation on how.to better
'provide sern ices to employers
who actually do or wish to suc-
cessfully hire individuals with
disabilities. The BAC also teach-
'es employers the skill of hiring.
people with disabilities 'effective-
ly. In' 'this age of .record low
unemployment, it makes good
business sense to hire qualified
employees with disabilities.
" According to David' Culver,
'Business Advisory Council
Coo6,rdinrator with VR1, in Fort
M\yers. "Today's progressive
employer view himself as a
farmer, growing his own human
resources and cultivation future
leaders. One of the keytesources
the farmer depends on is a good
local seed dealer. In the 'case, the
seed dealer is the VR. counselor
who helps bring the cr6p to har-
vest"
In addition to the low unem-
ployment rate, there are'several
good reasons' to hire people with
,disabilities.

"We are glad, that you are


brought together for the 1999-00

: One of the unified efforts that
we will be making is "Sailing the
,C's for Success".' We are striving
to adhere to a common goal of liv-

C's to a great year in every way
possible.
-, The first "C", that we have dis-
cussed stands for. courtesy. As lit-

best words in the English lan-

As you know, the start of
school is one of the most refresh-

hope abound. With this in mind,
let me make you aware of some of
the opportunities that are being
offered to students and parents..
This fall, we are offering cross
country, football, volleyball, and


golf. First games and matches will
be updated in the, near future;

MEDITATIONS OF A
%Unnntru 1ftr~tdxgr

By LOWELL F. ADAMS '
Why Do Good ,
People Die So
Young?
Precious in the sight
of the Lord is the
death of his saints
Psalms 116:15
Y PRAYER LIST is quite long. I pray for many
Slfriends and acquaintances, especially for those
seriously ill. Recently a wonderful Christian lady whom
I was praying for died. I had talked with her only a few
days earlier, and she seemed to think she was about
over the illness. Sadly, however, Her funeral was a
distinct shock. Why does God take such precious people
from among us?
In the creation process God gave mankind eternal
life. However, He also gave him a free will, to choose
good or evil, with the warning that if he chose to violate
that free will, he would die. Adam's sin brought death
to all of mankind. (Genesis 2:17)
No longer would mankind be allowed to live on in
an eternal state, for Satan, through Adam, had brought
sin into God's utopian world, and death was now its
legacy.
But in due time, God nullified Satan's dastardly
work, by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world
to pay that sin-debt of death. Anyone who would
willingly exercise their God-given free will could accept
it. Jesus made it possible for you and I to regain that
eternal life that Adam had lost. (Psalms 133:3)
Death, for those who accept the sacrifice of Jesus,
is no longer a separation from eternal life. Believers in
this wonderful plan of God, are Spiritually born into the
former state. Physical death, to them, has now become
only a doorway into the presence of the Lord. And so
shall they ever be, with the Lord. (I Thes. 4:17)
Death is a mystery to you and I. But to God it is
only a way to bring His children home, and He wants
His children to be at home with Him. Psalms 116:15
tells us "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of
His saints."
So when one of God's children, young in years, or
old, gives up this life and dies, they are not really dead.
God has simply called them home to be with Him.
And in God's. own time, you and I will be called
home, to be, eternally with the Lord and our loved ones.

"Big Gene"
We were, both freckled face boys living in Highland View.
Little did we know or care, what later in life we'd do.
We went through school together and.had a real close class.
Things are different now than they were then, but we really had a blast.
We had a lot of fun all through school, having beach parties,
playing football, and just acting the fool.
Somewhere along that iimc he picked up the name.i "BIG GENE" '
Could have been because he was the biggest one on our team.
As many big people aie, hli.had thhea Irr r.) .:0 ith his iz:- '
Of ciirce, we' iere 'soou n.c tl hen, then iedd 't reahre.
Graduation came, we went our separate ways.
HI- didn't believe it then, but those were the good old days.
Gene not a new convertible, it sure w.as a pretty machine.
Of i'cure, chat didn 't lain rtn 'long, lbecamiie Ihere c,,isi E Enmirgen f

His single days, he had to abort.
He starred wiay back then, ti make the bsiinesi what r it today. .

Heia' i'al'ei idion on ia'v mn 'es, t heliip ithise in ine''d.
God hlid blcised him very much, and in him was no greed.
He ia rev to iirna nizations, churches, and just plain people too.
If he knew' anyone in need I've seen what he would..do'.
There is much more, that could be said about Gene. .
For truly-he's been a giving machine. :
But right now, Genie is in physical. need.
If you"frc hlnoked up to.the prayecrJine.tra Heaven'-he need voni-ro inf.rccde.

The Source
In II Peter 1:16 we find, "For
we did not follow cleverly devised
myths when we, made known to
you the power and and coming of
our Lord Jesus Christ, but we
were eyewitnesses of His
majesty."
When I tell someone of Jesus,
I try to get my story straight.
Oliver F. Taylor Sometimes, we can get led astray.
Visitation Minister, First by literature we read. The test of
United Methodist Church, my witness is to go back to the
Bible.
There are people who try to restructure the gospel to,
suit their outlook on life. They are in error. The Holy
Scriptures is where we need to look for the truth of God.
The Bible becomes our source as we seek to follow Jesus
Christ. Of course, there is help from other sources, but
the main source is the Holy Scriptures.

College Students to Receive Cancer Society Scholarships


'College dreams for 99 young
students with a history of cancer
in the state of Florida will be
answered this August with the
assistance of the American
Cancer Society's College
Scholarship Program.
This program was, estab-
lished to provide financial.assis-
tance to eligible high school grad-
uates whose families have
already been burdened with the
medical cost of caring for a child
with cancer. Since its creation in

you may learn more about success-
fully losing weight and staying fit.
Research indicates that drink-
ing at least eight, eight-ounce
glasses of water a day can help
with weight loss. Water can also
contribute to the success of any
exercise program, since dehydra-
tion cause fatigue-and many peo-
ple who are too tired to exercise,
don't realize they are dehydrated.
According to the National
Center for Nutrition .and
Dietetics, Water 'speeds weight
loss by suppressing the appetite
naturally and helping the body
metabolize stored fat. Drinking
more water also helps eliminate
water retention.
"A common complaint of
women trying to lose weight is
water retention, so they don't
drink water. Yet, when your body
senses it is dehydrated, it holds
onto every drop. The result i's
greater water retention," said
Christine Palumbb, RD, and
member of the Crystal Springs
Good Health Advisory Board.
"When you drink enough water,
the body releases excess water
and helps prevent the .bloating
that is the primary symptom of
water retention."
Stay clear of beverages with-;
caffeine, warns Palurmbo. because, .
caffeine acts as a diuretic, robbing
the body of water, while sugared
drinks contribute to weight gain.
Drinking more water also fits

able to live their dreams of
attending college.
Christy Rogers, a 1999 recip-
ient wrote, "This scholarship has
really been a blessing in my life
and I appreciate it and all of the
hard work that is put in to allow
the scholarships to be available."
Christy is in the honors program
at theUniversity of North Florida
and last year .was named to the
dean's list for both the fall and
spring semesters.


Christine Palumbo, RD, says:

into. getting fit. According to the
textbook. Exercise Physiology,
when athletes are dehydrated by
just 4 percent, performance drops
by 22 percent. The solution' is to
drink plenty of water, but don't
w ait till you're thirsty.
'Thirst islanfimprecise indicator
of dehydration. By the time you are
thirsty, you are already dehydrat-
ed," said Lawrence Ross. M.D.:
It's recommended that active
adults drink two-thirds of an
ounce of water daily for each
:i pound of body weight.
Although sports drinks are use-
ful for prolonged and strenuous
exercise, the American College of
Sports Medicine says they don't
offer any performance advantage
over plain water for exercise last-
