Ralph Roberson, chairman of
the Centennial Committee, told
Port St. Joe city commissioners
Tuesday evening that a historical.
grant-in-aid application for
850,000 has been made to the
Florida Department of State .on
behalf of the,'city.
The purpose of the grant is to
provide funding for architectural
and, engineering planning and
design to restore and preserve the
historical integrity of the building.
while improving the functionality
for community use.
Design plans will Include air
conditioning, enhanced aecous-
tics, restroom and kitchen facility
improvements, and general build-
ing renovations.
The grant was prepared by a
volunteer committee appointed by
Mayor Pate and the commission-
ers. The committee, made up of
Charlotte Pierce, Greg Johnson,
George Duren', Ralph Rish, and,
Ralph Robersonil (Chairman), held
several meetings to research,
gather data, and prepare the
grant applications.
Total planning and design
costs are expected to be $50,000.
Preble-Rish, Inc. agreed .to pro-
vide $20,000 of engineering work
free to the city to enable the city-
to meet the match requirements.
The grant was prepared by the
committee at no'cost to the city.
A public meeting will be held
in Tallahassee oin November 16th,
17th, and 18th to decide which
grants will be awarded.

Board Clarifies Person


Port St. Joe city commission-
ers took several minutes during
Tuesday's meeting to clarify their
personnel policy as it relates to
seniority and departments within
the city.
The board voted during its
last meeting in August to merge"
the city wastewater treatment
plant and water department oper-.
ations as a cost savings measure.
The change in operations will
result in an annual savings of
approximately 8154,000 by the
resulting reduction in manpower
by four employees.
The plan will use certified
operators to run both plants
simultaneously and as a dual
operation.
City Attorney Billy Joe Rish


explained to the board during
Tuesday's meeting that the city
,needed to make it clear exactly
what' its policy is concerning
seniority, and whether the city's
seniority policy is limited to the,
various city departments.
The board' unanimously
decided to establish four depart-
merits within the city-adminis-
trative. public works, waste-
water/water, arid police depart-
ments. Commissioners confirmed
that reducdons would be done by
department as they have dis-
cussed in the past and is most
common among industry busi-
nesses, and other .governmental
entities.
During budget workshops,
the board discussed the loss of


mel Policy
revenue from Florida Coast Paper
Company and' the decrease in tax
revenue by; 6.1% because of a
reduction in taxable property val-
ues.
Applying For $600,000 CDBG
Lisa Oaks, representing
Summitt Professional Services,
reported'to the board that the
irm was moving forward with
plans to apply for 8600.000 in
Community Development Block
Grant '(CDBG) funds to update
and expand infrastructure along
First Street and Highway 98.
The grant is tied to the devel-
opment of the Port City Shopping
Center by local businessman
George Duren. Duren announced
several weeks ago his intention- to
See Board on Page 3


If the grant is approved, then
the city can move forward with
the architectural planning. The
next step would be to go after
grant money for the actual con-
struction phase, which would
require an estimated $400,000 to
8500.000 to complete.

Restoration Cost

Could Reach An

Estimated $400,000

to $500,000
"The committee feels that we
have a tremendous asset that is
underutilized because of its con-
dition. These improvements
would make the building more
useful for all citizens and would
have a positive cultural. and eco-
nomic impact on the community.
We would have a nice facility for
meetings, shows, programs,
plays, and concerts," Roberson
told the board.
Robeson also told the board
that representatives from the
Department of State have visited
the site and were very impressed
with the building and its poten-
tial.
The Centennial Building was
built in 1938 in conjunction with
the State of Florida's 100th (cen-
tennial) anniversary of the- first
signing of the Florida Constitu-
tion in Port St. Jqe in 1838.


Sen. Graham Tours



Apalachicola River


Wants to Help
U.S. Senator Bob Graham
toured the Apalachicola River,
Tuesday, September 7th, with Dr.
Joseph Westphal, Assistant
Secretary of the Army (Civil
Works); 'David Struhs, Secretary
of Florida's' Deparmtent of
Environmental Protection; local
environmental leaders; represen-
tatives from barge companies; and
others.
Graham toured the rivei- to
gain a better, understanding of
what, if any, role Congress should
play in determining a nrew direc-
tion for the Apalachicola. The
river, which is currently being
dredged by the U.S. Army Corps
of ,Engineers, is an important
environmental and commercial


"Preserve Treasure"
asset.
"It is vital that the federal and
state governments work together
in preserving treasures like the
Apalachicola River," said Graham
prior to his visit. "Our tour should
give all of the interested parties a
better understanding of this valu-
able river."
The Apalachicola River is one
of Florida's longest rivers.
Dredging began in 1958 after
Congress passed the Rivers and
Harbors Act to provide navigation
channels for commerce.
Graham is a member of the
Senate Environment' and Public
Works Committee, which has
jurisdiction over the Army Corps
of Engineers' civil works projects.


Huge Labor Day Weekend Celebration Success


If you couldn't find something
to do in the Gulf County/Mexico
Beach area this weekend, you
need to.have your finder checked
out.
Everywhere one might have
tried to go, there was some type of
activity going on. Fishing, flying,
scalloping, shopping, eating,
swimming, or most anything else
a person could imagine seemed to
be going on this past Labor Day
weekend.
"Everybody was having fun,"
explained- Gulf County Chamber
of Commerce Executive Director


Diane Scholz; She 'estimated that
approximately 7,500 people visit-
ed the two-day long Scallop
Festival (held all day Saturday
and Sunday afternoon).
'"The Sunday afternoon gospel
singing was just a fantastic high-
light to the local entertainment
offered throughout the festival,"
she added.
The 3rd Annual Scallop
Festival was expanded to a two-
day event this year at the request
of both visitors and vendors.
Add to that, the inclusion of
the 1st Annual Slam Fishing


Tourney (Cobia Boat/Yamaha
Saltwater Fishing Tournament)
and there was a tremendous
amount of excitement from Frank
Pate, Jr. Park to the St. Joe
Marina throughout the weekend.
Ruff 'Em Up, lead by Captain
Shelly Ray, took the team offshore
$1,000 prize money. The $1,000
inshore award was earned by
Oasts manned by Clint Moore and
Stuart Shoaf.
Air Shows
That takes care of the land
and sea, now what about the air?
Yes, there was not one, but two
air shows.
Gulf Aviation held its annual
fly-in and open house Saturday at
Costin Airport, located just south
of Port St. Joe.
There was something for
everyone and plenty of food to
boot. Aircraft were on display and
demonstrated during the after-
noon-long activity. Two planes
were also constantly taking folks
up for rides. The show was high-
lighted by the sudden appearance
of a parachute jumping team from
Pensacola.
Also on Saturday, the
Emerald Coast Giant Scalers
hosted their annual model air-
plane show at Parker Farms, off of
Highway 22 near Wewahitchka.

throughout the southeast demon-
strated their flying skills.
All donations and entrance
fees went to support the Special
Olympics.
Pictures and scenes from all
the weekend's activities will


appear throughout this week's
edition of The Star. Aerial pho-
tographs used were made by The
Star photographer aboard aircraft
owned and operated by Gulf
Aviation president John Cullen.

We Have A Lot



To Crow About

Port St. Joe Had an Important

Role to Play in Florida's Beginning!
FOR A COMMUNITY WHICH LAYS CLAIM to as important a
place in state history as. Port St. Joe does, there are surprisingly
few historical structures left standing in our community; or even
our county. There are even few reminders to the uninitiated pub-
lic of the important activities which took pace here 160 years or so
ago.
Florida had its official beginning here.
That fact should be remembered with markers, historic sites,
monuments and, above all, written history.
Most of our historical importance is tucked away in' some offi-
cial library, to be ferreted out by the historically interested, parties.
It isn't on public display for any and all to see and ponder over.
Actually, the important role our community played in Florida
becoming a state is a genuine surprise to many, including some
long-time residents!
FOR THIS REASON, WE MUST HEARTILY approve of the
reclaiming and refurbishing of the old lighthouse keeper's living
quarters near Cape San Bias.
This is a genuine historical structure which once, served our
county-... even before it WAS a county..
There are no structures which date back to the actual signing
of the state's first constitution. There is a location where the build-
ing saft, but nobody knows, 'for sure, just where it was located: not
the actual lot and block.,
We know where the old railroad was;.where the ancient race
trackist were located: where the ancient docks extended out into
the bay but the location of buildings has long been eradicat-
.' ed. Abundant signs point to the general location of various histor-
ical structures-signs such as old coins, bottles, pots, and other.
such signs of habitation.
WE HAVEN'T TAKEN ADVANTAGE of even these few feeble
signs of our historical and important past. The old railroad repli-
ca-a model of Florida's first ever steam locomotive-remains hid-
den from public display. The state museum puts some of this
memorabilia on display and has recently redone signs that point
to its location.
We have an important position in our state's--and
nation's-history in our environs. It deserves to be made known.
'The lighthouse keeper's cottage of 100 plus years ago being
reclaimed is one important step to reclaiming our past.


Real Money

THE CLINTONS ARE REPORTED TO BE house hunting -in
New York: a place they can call their residence. It appears as if
Hillary has derinitelyinade.up her minid to''do'the' people pf.NMewv
York a favor and attempt to become their United States Senator.
Just any little old house or bungalow with a rose entwined
fence won't do, either They are dickering with an owner over a
price tag which is said to total in the millions, even with the pres-
idential discount.
Their choice is said to have price tag of from $4 to $14 million.
That's some digs! Even for an ex-president.
Hillary is going to be a genuine tax payer, if she can't get some
exemption or other.
THE NEWSPAPERS AND MAGAZINES are beginning to won-
der, editorially, as to how the ex-president can afford such a house
on a salary of S200,000; especially since he had to pass the hat to
raise his legal fees incurred by his dilly-dallying around with
Monica.
If the ex-president's financial acumen is witnessed to by his
decisions on his personal finances and ability to pay; then how
can he be trusted to reveal the truth to the nation about any sur-
pluses we may face in the national budget'? He has plenty of help
in deciding just how much the national surplus is or isn't!
Maybe we should allow his portion of deciding what to do with
the surplus which has to do with re-paying some of the national
debt, to go through. If the debtors will accept what the government
offers, maybe the surplus is real, after all! :. ..

Something Ain't Right!


I should have smelt this out
the very first year. Josh had been
off to college for a whole week, Our
loneliness was exceeded only, by
our worry. Was he alright? Was he
getting enough to eat? Had he
been entrapped by wild heathens?
Did I give him enough running
money in case of an emergency?
He called the first Saturday
night away from home. "Dad," var-

again over the unbelievable roar!
"Son, I can't hear you!" What

"Yes, dear."
He called again. Excited. "Dad,

itters the Yard Have to Ea t Too--Lne Up for Food


IT'S CURIOUS HOW attached
'one will become to the critters in
his yard after he begins to feed
-them or otherwise 'care for their
needs:. .
For several. years I fed the
squirrels which came into my yard.
and fed then Well. After so long a
time they began to eat out of my
hand or meet me at the feeding
station for their regular morning
ration ofpeanuts. Those squirrels
were individually recognizable,
they were so regular at the table.
They' would 'bring their
cousins from down in the next
block and from across town, until
-before long, I was' feeding half the
squirrels in town plus the blue
jays and the woodpeckers. Those
animals were going through 50
pounds of peanuts every five or' six
weeks! .
That can get expensive!


THE STORM: OF '95 took care
of that. It blew my feeder down


and damaged its structure to the
point where it was un-useable.
Besides, I could no longer get up
on a ladder to put the feeding sta-
tion back up in the tree, so I had
to leave it down. The squirrels
would just have to fend for .them-
selves from that point on.
They still come back to the
trees in our back yard and play
around in them. I imagine it is
another generation of squirrels,.
but they are about as plentiful as
ever. And just as hungry!
I decided to start feeding [but
not as much as before] them
again. I've substituted a bird feed-

squirrels had never bothered my
satsumas before. They must be
getting desperate for food. So, I
decided to reinstate the peanut

Floyd Tells Rotarians About


SSJPD Report)
BRIEF ESCAPE NIPPED IN THE BUD
On Wednesday, September
1st, around 3:32 p.m., Port St.
Joe Police Department Officer
Russell Burch made a traffic stop
on a green Ford car at the inter-
section of Twenty-Second Street
and Garrison Avenue. It was later
determined that this vehicle was
driven by Ronnie Lee Small, Jr.,
21, of Wewahitchka.
During the traffic stop, the
driver gave the officer a bogus
name and date of birth. After fur-
ther looking into the situation, he
wa able to acquire the driver's
real name.
,-When Officer Burch checked
Mr. Small's driver's license
through DHSMV, it reflected that
it had been suspended. Burch
then placed Small under arrest
for driving while his license was
suspended or revoked.
As Officer Burch attempted to
cuff the suspect, he turned and
started running. Small ran into a
S wooded area between Twentieth
and Twenty-Second Streets and
Marvin and Cypress Avenues.
Officer Burch was relaying his
pursuit location to the depart-
ment's dispatcher as the chase
continued.
With this information, officers
were able to surround the area
and apprehend Small within a few
minutes.
Small was given a citations
for speeding and an open containI-
er. He was also arrested for resist-
ing arrest -with violence, giving
false information to a law enforce-
ment officer, and-driving while his
license was suspended.
Small was then transported
to the Gulf County Jail and is
being held there without bond.
TAKEN IN ON BATTERY WARRANTS
Also on Wednesday, Septem-
ber 1st, around 1:30 p.m., Sgt.
James Hersey arrested Sabina L.
Daniels, 19, on a warrant for bat-
tery on a school employee and
aggravated battery.
Daniels was transported to
the Gulf County Jail from the pro-
bation office. She is currently
being held without bond. ..
MULTIPLE CHARGES NET THREE
ARRESTS, $40 BOND RELEASE
Shortly after midnight on
September 1st, Officer Burch

ii the area of Highway 98 and
Avenue D. .
A There were three occupants
in the vehicle-one adult male,
Steven Fleischmann, 20, of Port
St. Joe, and two juvenile females.
Upon further investigation by
turch, the smell of an alcoholic
beverage was detected coming
from the vehicle. The. officer also
saw an open container inside the
vehicle. Since no one in the vehi-
cle was of legal age to possess
alcohol, he arrested all'the occu-
pants.
After further investigation
Officer Burch charged all occu-
pants with possession of marijua-
na (less than 20 grams), posses-
gion of drug paraphernalia, and
possession of alcohol under 21
years of age. Fleischmann was
released on a $40 bond.'

transported to the Gulf County
Jail and is currently being held
without bond.

James Richard Love for speeding;
he was traveling 69 m.p.h. In a 45
m.p:h. zone.
The deputy checked Love's
driver's license and found out it
was suspended. Love, an 18 year
old McDonough, Georgia resident,
was arrested and taken to the
Gulf County Jail for driving on a
suspended license.
While speaking with Love,

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1999 PAGE 9A


Labor Day is traditionally a
day celebrating America's working
men and women. America's work
force is second to none; these
women and men have in times of
-ar or depression joined hands to
S.protect and preserve our country.
Another day should be set
." aside, just as celebrated and fes-
: .tie as Lallor Day, to honor
America's volunteer workers.
These people work long hours for.
.no pay and receive very little recog-
nition. yet these unselfish people
,are quite often the sole source of
inanpower- and' money for the
many community charities and
projects in the cities in which they.
.live.
Volunteers in Wewa, Port St.
"Joe. and Mexico Beach this past
month are excellent examples of
,concerned and' caring citizens bet-,
Watering their communities through
volunteer work. : :,' .
The outdoor news this week is
'still overshadowed 'by the continu-
. ance of red tide. 'DEP has lifted
restrictions in some areas, most
notably the oystering areas of
Apalachjcola Bay, but in other
"areas the fish kills continue. We
need a few good storms to help
speed the demise of red tide.
Fresh water fishing on the
Dead Lakes has been hot for the
last few days. According to Tony
and Karen Addison at Tony's Bait
and Tackle store in Wewa, the big
bull bream are biting on earth-
worms and crickets. The White-
River and Florida River areas have.,'
been the spots to fish, Tony says.
Bay fishing has been slow for
trout, but some big redfish are-
being boated in the bay and off,
nearshore structures. Many of the
reds are too big to keep. Gold
spoons are the lure of choice in the
bay, and big live shrimp and three
finger live baits fished on
nearshoree structure are hooking,
a" nglers up with the reds.
Anglers are seeing more and
more fly fishermen on our waters.
Fly fishing is a hot new sport in
our area and will continue to grow.
Iobinson's Outfitters in Apalach'
wyas the first to tap seriously into
this growing sport, and now they:


stay. booked-up months in
advance.
Most of these anglers are catch
and release. Some area charter
boats now offer discounts on catch
and release trips, and others flatly
refuse to charter groups that only
want to fill cooler after cooler after
cooler with fish. All anglers should
help conserve arid protect our
ocean's resources.
A few good kings are being
boated, but the fish are staying in
the 80 to 100 foot depths. As the
water cools in the next few weeks,
the early fall return of the mack-
erels and cobia could begin.
Bottom fishing offshore 'is
more dependable, and quite a few
red grouper were brought to dock
at this weekend's Slam Tourna-
ment in St. Joe. Closer in on struc-
ture. the snappers and triggerfish
are beginning to return to their fall
and winter hide-outs. A few cool
nights and milder days should get
the bite going.
Volunteer Day has a nice' ring
to it. Volunteers in Wewa helped
raise more than 87,500 for schol-
arships for their community's stu-
dents at last month's catfish tour-
ney, anid over Labor Day the
Emerald Coast Giant Scalers had a
model air show with the proceeds
earmarked for Wewa's Special
Olympics.
In Port St. Joe, volunteers
again helped make their Scallop
Festival the best ever and benefit-
ted many worthwhile charities at
the, same time-,. In Mexico Beach,
their Reef Association's 3rd
Annual Kingfish tournament net-
ted more than 825,000-all of it to
be spent on building reefs, moni-
toring them, and educating the
public about the benefits of reefl
building to the marine ecosystem,
and to the communities where
they are built.
Volunteer Day would be a
wonderful opportunity to have a
party to honor, those who
unselfishly and freely devote their
time, and energy to better their
community. The only problem?
Who Would plan it, organize it, fix
the food, and clean up afterwards?

Prevention Is Key In Preventing Head Lice

This is the season for reading, writing, arithmetic-and head lice


: University of Florida entomol-
ogists say the back-to-school time
of year is when head lice are most
commonly transmitted, and they
urge parents to be on the look-out
fpr the tiny hair hitchhikers.
; What's more, in research to
test the effectiveness of many
over-the-counter products that
claim to kill head lice, scientists
are finding that many such prod-
ucts are losing their effectiveness.
"Already we've seen that head
lice are becoming much more dif-
ficult to control than they were
several years ago with the prod-
ucts that are available," said ento-
mologist Phil Koehler, a
researcher in UF's Institute dof
Food and Agricultural Sciences."..
"The concern is that the fail-
ures we're seeing are due to head
lice developing resistance'to these
products," Koehler said. "Since
they've been on the market for, 20
years, that's plenty of time for,
head lice to evolve and become
resistant." '
"If head lice shampoos an'd
products fail, parents are left with
manual removal of the tiny
pests-and prevention-as the
best means of keeping their chil-
dren free 'of head lice," said Cla'y
Scherer, a graduate researcher
who works with Koehler and who
consults with elementary school
nurses.
From August to November,
Scherer recommends, parents
should inspect their children's
hair weekly because the head lice'
transmitted then result in wide-'
spread 'infestations by December
and January. The National


Pediculosis Association sponsors
"Head Lice Prevention 'Month" in
September to raise awareness
about the issue.
Scherer says head lice are
mostly a problem in school-age
children because of their playful,
affectionate behavior. That behav-
ior provides opportunities for
head-to-head contact, which head
lice need to spread.,
"Head lice don't fly, hop, jump
or run, so it takes head-to-head
contact to get them,"', Scherer
.says. "Small children touch, they
bump, they'take naps, they share
;.baseball caps. and combs, and
that allows: head lice to spread.
The, legs of head lice end, in
claws' that are very suited to
grasping hair shafts and moving
around. The tiny blood-suckers
usually lay their eggs, called nits,
near the root of the hair. The nits
are about 1/16 inch long and an
adult louse is about 1 /8 inch
long. .
o Scherer and Koehler say all
the current over-the-counter
products have the same active
compound, so if head lice are
resistant to one of them, another
brand won't help. Some older
head lice treatments have been
taken off the market because of
serious side effects.
'. But while head lice are both-
'ersome, researchers point out,
';'they are not fatal. Their best
advice to parents is to avoid dan-
gerous, even deadly, home reme-
Sdies. Scherer said one mother
soaked her child's hair in
kerosene, combed out the lice and
dipped the comb as she went into

stove. The child's hair caught fire
leading to severe burns,
Other home remedies, such,'
as coating a child's hair with may-
onnaise or Vaseline, simply don't
. work.
"Head lice are not a public
health issue; they tend to be more
of a' nuisance," Scherer said.'
Although head lice have never
been shown to transmit disease,,
just the presence of head lice is
considered a disease called
pedfculosis. As the head lice suck
blood from the scalp, they inject
their saliva into the wound.
Repeated exposure to the sall-
va,.'eventually causes an allergic
reaction. A child with a persistent
problem ends up with swollen
glands and a lot of irritation
caused by the, infestation.
If children do get lice. Scherer
says all clothing and bedding
must be washed and dried on
high heat to 'kill the lice and eggs.
To guard against reinfestation
from eggs that hatch later, toys
such as stuffed animals should be
sealed in plastic bags for seven to
S10days .
'And if lice make some' parents
want to tear their hair out, well,
that may be the best cure. For
boys, a shaved head will help and
for girls, a very short haircut can
help In locating and removing all
the lice and nits.
', Koehler recommends double-
checking the, Instructions for

It was an extremely busy day

: But if the instructions are fol-
lowed and the treatment seems
not to work, Scherer suggests
avoiding repeat treatments; the
*"products are not mere shampoos
but insecticides. Manual removal
of lice and nits with a lice comb is
time-consuming but effecUdve.
Although head lice infest 10
million to 12 million people each
:year in the United States. there is
still a social stigma attached to
the problem. Koehler points out.
In fact. the childhood slur. "You
.have cooties." originally referred
t6 head lice.
Parents, the two researchers'
say, are the key to detecting and.,
preventing head lice.
"One of the concerns we have
is that parents really don't spend
.as much time looking for lice as
they should. They expect the
school to do that for them. and
liat's really not going to happen."

PSJ Homecoming

Date is,Changed
Recently, the Executive
Council of the' Student, Govern-
ment at Port St. Joe High School
began planning the week-long
events for Homecoming 1999.
These festivities were original-
ly supposed to occur during the
week of October 18 to 22.
Fortunately, the council
quickly realized that a "fall break"'
scheduled for October 18 and 19
would interfere greatly vith this
traditional celebration.
SWith much cooperation and
assistance from head football
coach Chuck Gannon and school
board member Charlotte Pierce,
they were able to change the date
of homecoming from October
22nd, to November 12th.
The council members hope
that this does not cause any
inconveniences, and appreciate
those who helped make this pos-
sible.

Who's In Charge?
It's not easy being a parent-
and' handling the disrespectful
outbursts of children in a reason-
able, unemotional manner when
they're acting like "little mon-
sters." Obviously parents need
help, but not help that requires
they be a genius, saint or profes-
sional psychotherapist.
With 1-2-3 Magic you can
learn:
*how to get your kids to STOP
doing what. you don't want them
to do (arguing, whining,
tantrums, sibling rivalry, etc.);
*how to encourage your kids to
START doing what you want
them to. do (cleaning rooms,
going to bed, homework, etc.);
*how to avoid the talk-per-
suade-argue-yell-hit syndrome;
*how to handle misbehavior in
public;
*how to deal with the six kinds of
testing and manipulation;
*ten steps for building self-
esteem; and
*teachers, how to maintain con-
trol in your classroom.
1-2-3 Magic addresses the dif-
ficult task of child discipline with
humor, keen insight, and proven
experience.. This time-tested pro-
gram provides easy-to-follqw

SWewa Elementary School stu-
dents are learning more than
their ABC's. They are learning the
CV's as well--core values, that ist
With the new school term, stu-
dents have begun receiving
instruction on how to be respon-
sible, honest citizens of our com-
munity.
Gulf District teachers recog-
nized the need for teaching stu-
dents at an early age to value
human life and to respect all peo-
ple. To address this need, teach-
ers throughout the district
worked collaboratively to develop
a plan to begin implementation d6f
character education at the ele-
mentary school level.
After polling elementary
teachers regarding what they felt
were the most important values to
instill in youngsters, it was deter-
mined that pre-kindergarten
.would focus on caring, kinder-
garten on- respect, and first grade
on honesty.
Responsibility, fairness, coop-
eration, and self-control are the
focus in grades two through five,
respectively. Eventually, charac-
ter education will be expanded to
the middle and high school,
grades.
Lesson plans, activities,
monthly calendars, bulletin
boards, and visual aids were
developed for use by each teacher.
This curriculum will help teach-
ers establish a classroom, atmos-
phere which encourages positive
attitudes, tolerance of others, and
good character in our students.
The intent of this curriculum
is not to replace values taught in
the home by parents, but to rein-
force those values. If the home
and the school work together, we
can develop within our students
those values which will enable
them to lead productive, healthy
lives-both now and in the future.
Following these easy steps
can help parents raise respectful
children;
*Talk with your child
' about respect. Point out that -m-
everyone has rights and needs
that should be respected.
*Clearly state 'expecta-
tions. Tell your child you expect
him to be courteous to others-
regardless of race, creed, social
status or any other reason.
*Set limits on criticism of
people. You might say, "Ydu can
be angry with your brother, but
you can't scream in his face. To
respect him, you listen to his side
of the story."
*Teach reason behind
manners. Explain how not leav-
ing the table until everyone is fin-
ished, or not talking when anoth-
er is talking, shows respect for
other people.
*Question put-downs. If
your child makes fun of someone,
don't scold. Ask how he would feel
if someone made fun of him.
*Point' out disrespect. On
TV or in conversations, talk about
incidents where people are preju-
diced, insensitive, and unfair.
*Acknowledge respectful
actions. What happens when
your child or someone else con-
siders another's feelings?

order for the books, so if you are
planing on attending the class be
sure to let us know.
Our students will be selling
Christmas cards for two weeks
beginning September 15. It seems
early to be thinking about
Christmas, but this way we get
our order in and cards back in
plenty of time.
These little "salespersons" will
have a booklet with samples so
you can choose your favorite
cards. This is our biggest fund-
raising event each year and we
thank alLthose who participate.
Faith Christian School stu-
dents look great in their blue,
white, and yellow polo shirts. Our
dress code has been welcomed by ,.
almost 100% of our students and
parents. It makes school morn-
ings so much easier; no more
decisions on what to wear, only
which color.
Teachers joined the students
last Friday wearing new royal blue
shirts with the school name and
mascot in gold. Shirts with logos
for students may be ordered at
the Athletic House and logos can
be applied to already purchased
shirts for a small charge.
These first three weeks are
behind us and good study habits'
are being set. Three week
progress reports will be sent
home today, September 9, to all
students in grades five through
eight who are having difficulty in
individual subject areas.
We want to remind all our
parents to check and sign their
student's homework pads each
night and to sign and return all
test papers. This is our means of
constant communication with
you. Please also remember that
tutoring is available for all ages
after school.
Our sincerest desire is for all
students to achieve and to do
their very best. The unofficial

I am not sure when it started;
perhaps it was when those
"Golden Arches"' first started
appearing on the landscape.
Every time the car hit the road,
french fries, milk shakes, and
cheeseburgers ended up in my
lap. It was as natural,to stop at
fast food places as it was gas sta-
tions-no pun intended.
Of course, being young and
having a boundless supply of
energy allowed me to get away
with it. Exercise and activity'
would always overcome an unsa-
tiable appetite. Right!
Too late or too lazy, as an
older person I realize now that
conditioning and good health are
habits that work best when start-
ed in one's youth. We all can agree
'that students do their best when
they are healthy. That is why we
are sailing the "C" of conditioning
at Wewahitchka High School this
year.
But, it is not just the students
who need a healthy lifestyle. We
adults realize that good eating
habits, proper rest, and a pro-
gram of exercise appropriate for
our age will enable us to have the
energy, attendance, and attitude
to provide our students with a
stimulating and rewarding educa-
tional experience. And possibly it.
is also our job to provide a posi-
tive role model in this area.
Young or old, students or.
. teacher, and parent or child, we
all benefit from a healthy
lifestyle-a "C" of good condition-
ing!
Open House was a big suc-
cess. Thanks to our entire faculty
and staff for having their best foot
forward. And thank you, very
much parents and 'community
members for showing your sup-
port of our school and students.
We take very seriously the respon-
sibility with which we have been
entrusted. We hope you were able
to sense that upon your visita-

The Goodness of the Lord

In Psalm 27:13, we find, "I
believe that I shall see the good-
ness of the Lord in the land of the
living! Wait for the Lord, be
strong and let your heart take
courage; yea wait for the Lord!"
4 There has been a book about
bad things happening to good
people. Some people seem to have
Oliver F. Taylor a dark cloud hanging over them.
Visitation Minister, First Recently, John Kennedy Jr. died
United Methodist Church in a plane crash. The Kennedy
family has had several untimely
and tragic deaths. Three died at this time.
We have a country expression which goes, 'They
seem to be snake bit." Some families or groups of peo-
ple have bad things to happen. A strong Christian faith
is' the best way to deal with these situations. The
Psalmist refers to the goodness of the Lord in the land of
the living. I firmly believe in the goodness of the Lord.
Life is filled with quality and quantity. I accept my gift of
life and thank God for His goodness.

MEDITATIONS OF A
QBy LOntrWELL F. ADAMS
By LOWELL F. ADAMS


Prayers Of Faith
"All things whatsoever
you shall ask in
prayer, believing, you
shall receive"
Matthew 21:22


J THROUGHOUT HISTORY God has used His
people as an influential tool to encourage the
ruling powers to adopt and promote the ethical and
moral laws of God. This Christian effort was most
successful and beneficial in the early history of this
nation. But during recent years, there has been a steady
decline in the public moral structure of America.
In fact, God and His Moral standards have become
anathema to the political powers. So much so that even
mention ,;of God and His Word is mostly forbidden in
many public areas. We have stooped to calling evil good,
by approving some of God's most, repulsive sins.
Homosexuality, killing unborn babies, teaching kids how
to have sex, adictive gambling, etc., to name.a few.
It is urgently needful that God's people get on their
knees and begin talking to Him about the deplorable
conditions in our country. God promises in II Chronicles
7:14, "If my people, who are called by my name, will
humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn
from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and
will forgive their sins, and will HEAL THEIR LAND."
Prayer changes things, and God tells us in James
5:16, "The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man
availeth much."
Sometimes our prayers are answered immediately.
Dr. John R. Rice told me one time, he and his wife had
been trying to push his old automobile and crank it one
cold morning. They finally gave up, and went into the
house. He said he got on his knees and prayed. He told
God he was trying to do His work, and he needed an
automobile that was dependable. While he was praying
he said his wife told him he was wanted on the phone.
A dealer was on the phone, and said, "Dr. Rice, I
have been thinking of offering you an automobile to help
in your ministry. Could you use a new automobile?"
America needs more than an automobile, but God
can help us. Some of us are already praying about it. Will
you pray with us for the healing of beloved America?
