Fire Severely Damages Home In Cape Plantation
Mid-morning this Wednesday, area fire departments responded to a home, owned by Roger and

quickly brought the blaze under control, but not before major structural damage had taken place.
The cause of the blaze, which severely damaged the residence, was undetermined at The Star's

tackled several issues during
their regular meeting Tuesday
evening, but .none seemed more
important than where county res-

Larry Wells advised the board that

Commissioner John Stanley
brought the issue back to the
board's attention. "I think it's
unfair that our citizens have to
find shelter in another county,"
Sheriff Frank McKeithen had
his concerns too, as he expressed
his opinion that many residents
would not leave the county to
seek shelter and would create a
more dangerous situation.
He also questioned the timing
of the Red Cross organization in
making .such a drastic change in
policy right in the middle of hurri-
Wells reminded the board
that Wewahitchka is only 17 miles
from the Gulf, and the concern
seems to be over the "wide span"

Commissioners discussed the
possibility of partnering with the
school board and reopening the
shelters. They asked the board
attorney, Tim McFarland, to
research the issue, especially as it
pertains to liability to the county'
to see if it's possible. Board
Chairman Tommy Knox asked
Stanley to also continue research-
ing the issue.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is an
entirely different approach to
Florida Coast Paper Company's
financial difficulties. It veers awayr
from the reorganizational concept
and forces the issue of either sell-

motion, filed September 2nd. calls
for a hearing on September 29 at
10:00 a.m. at the U.S. Bankrupt-

Attorney Pat Floyd, repre-
s. enting the Gulf County Tax.
Collector, did not think the news:
was necessarily bad.
"We're presently evaluating
the motion by Florida Coast Paper
Company to change to Chapter 7
bankruptcy in an effort to deter-
mine the strategic value and how
it relates to the creditors-primar-
ily the bondholders." he said. "We
will continue to evaluate what's in
the best interest of Gulf County."
Local union president John
Reeves was surprised by the
action. Reeves said he was some-
what disappointed that union offi-
cials had not been notified of the
action, but added, "While it

Sources have indicated that
indeed the action could force the
hand of bondholders who are
owed over $1l65 'million, in pay-
ments and interest for the mill.
This move could put them in a
position of actively pursuing an
operational plan to reopen the
mill or buyer to recoup at least
some portion of their money.

the move definitely forces the
issue and would bring a real
deadline and final answer on the
future of Florida Coast Paper

To Go Up and Up
Spending "The Other Fellow's Money"
Has Become the Easy Thing To Do
WE ARE NOT LABORING UNDER THE impression that our
opposition to the raising of any budget .in Gulf County is going to
have any effect on- the outcome of the eventual bottom line, but we
will have the satisfaction of being opposed to any such measures..
In, years past our governmental subdivisions have made much
of their having "held the line" when it comes to levying taxes. Gulf
didn't have an extra supply of cash lying around for the officials
to fritter away, but we. have always had a su efficiency to meet our '
needs, when it was proven that needs exist. .
We have been self sufficient and, we suppose, if there was any
desire to waste any money in the past, we were better able to fur-
nish the money to be wasted then than we are now.:
Now,. our county is struggling with its every fiber to -provide
jobs for its citizens.
-WE DON'T THINK THAT NOW IS THE time to be raising
Now is the time to. be frugal with tax money, and be lenient
with the people from which the tax moneNy is extracted: even from
those who are able to' pay. Especially from those who will find it a
hardship to pay. The small businessman in the county is in this
last category. He-is caught between the government and the hard
It's an. easy matter to allow the nmillage to remain the same and
fool yourself into believing that no more taxes are being levied.
But,,what, of the property owner who does not get homestead
exemption on his property? He gets to pay more and gets nothing
for it? l -
_EVERYONE IN GULF COUNTY IS attempting to attract more
jobs to the county; especially.so at this particular time. How can
we attract more jobs.to the county when.the main thing we can
promise them in return is that they are.going to be faced with
bearing the brunt of paying more arid ,more taxes? ,
Aren't we faced with that probleni already, in the case of'
Florida Coast Paper Company? Don't they have the opinion they.
are already paying too much money in taxes? Why should any new,
firm feel differently? Is industry paying an unfair share of taxes in
It appears to us that an exhaustive study should be made into
the answering of this question, rather than just tack on an extra
dollar or two "for somebody who lives outside the county to have
to pay"., .
Fixt or Tear ItDown
EVERYBODY',TALKS ABOUT THE wVeather., but nobody does
anything about it .for obvious reasons ..
For years. people have talked about the heed to "do some-
thing" about the Centennial Building, but nobody ended up doing.,
anything. Oh, the city has repaired the roof several times, they
have repaired the floor and replaced the windows and upgraded
the heating system, but no real renovation program has ever got-
ten under way.. until nowl :
Workshops have been held and suggestions made about this
renovation and,that restoration program for the building, but the
cost of air conditioning and the need for the building to be air con-
ditioned has stymied every effort suggested at renovation.
THE BUILDING HAS SUCH PROMISE to serve the public in a
useful manner, if only some renovation could be accomplished. It
seems as if now a committee is dead set on accomplishing this
Attempts to renovate -the building which have been made in,
the past have fallen short of the goal because those making the
plans of what needed to be done haven't thought big enough, or ,;
either considered the necessary money as being unobtainable.
The new committee is thinking big! They're considering a bud-
get of $400,000 to $500,000 to do the necessary renovations. It
will probably take every penny of that much.
If we're- not going'-toi make the building useable for the pub-
lic-by whatever amount it takes-it's better to. make alternative ,
plans to tear thfebuilding down. It's no *use.to'u.s as it is.

Pair f Old StJOseph
Found at Centennial Site
.Two weeks ago an editorial appeared in The Star addressing some of Gulf County and Port St. Joe's
history and how little has actually been retained for public display.
Ruddy Richards,,of St. Joe Beach, brought a photo by The Star office last Friday that dates back to the
late thirties when his father T. 0O. (Teddy Oakley) Richards was part of the construction team that helped
build the Centennial Building.
Ruddy said all the items shown in the picture,were found while the Centennial site was being excavat-
ed by the Works Project Administration (WPA) unit his father was working with back under Roosevelt."
T. 0. Richards found the coins and wedding ring [pictured in lower righthand portion of photos at the
construction site, all of which are currently on display at the State Constitution museum across from the
Centenilial Building., Ruddy said he had no idea Where the other items might be'cu-rently located.
Some of the itemrns found included fniscellaneous plates, platters. and bowls. Note the pipes pictured in
fthe lower center portion of the photo. The pipe bowl at the bottom actually has a face carved into it.
A shoe last is located just to the left of the pipes. .
In. the upper left hand section, a tiny, morphine bottle was also found at the site. ,
Ruddy said he remembered his father talking about many of the items unearthed being sent to-New
York to be part of the World Fair exhibit during the late ,t930's.., -

Most of these volunteers are

Take my case, for example.
I have had some "good

hardly ignore, since the advisee
spent some 10 years getting edu-*
cated on the subject for which he
was advising me. I had no exper- ,
tise to draw from and no experi-

deaf ear [although I have a deaf

If you have read this far, just
read a little further and you will
see how I could hardly ignore this
"good advice".' .
I WAS -PAYING a- "maifite--
nance" visit, to my doctor the
other daV. when out' of the blue.
just as I was getting ready to
leave, he asked, "By the wa\.
when was the last time you had a:
colonoscopy exam?".,- ; -:
I knew the meaning of the.
word "colon" and. I figured the
"scopy" part of the question he
asked me was latin for "I spyi" "
I studied his request for a few
minutes and replied, "I don't
think I have ever had the dubious
"Well, I think all men, above
the. age of 50, should have peri-
odic colonoscopes." he replied.
"It's sh,precaution to prevent can-
cer from sneaking up on you and
all men need the testing, periodi-
Scally," he continued in a learned
tone of voice.
-'"Let me make you an
appointment to have one done by
a specialist. It won't take much
/tifime and you won't feel it at all,"
. he continued.,
I STILL WASN'T comfortable
with the thought of some doctor
playing "I spy" in the manner I
was imagining it was suggested I
alldw it'to be played.:
*It just didn't seem to promise
much comfort. Actually my imag-
ination was telling me that it was
going'to be the 'exact opposite of

But my friend, the doctor,
kept insisting,. until I agreed to
have the "procedure". '
", That's what they call it.
The "procedure" portion of
the "procedure" is the getting
ready to perform the little game
of "I spy"! .
It entails a- two-hour. visit to'
the specialist; where he tells you:
right off the bat, :"It won't hurt."
I was beginning to think they
were all protesting too much and
I was in for an experience.
The doctor gave me two bot-
tles of what he described as a
laxative, with instructions on
how to take it and further
instructions not to eat anything

necessary because. I was in a
room with about a half dozen
men AND women, all waiting .on
the same kind of "procedure" I
was going to have.
The nurse stuck-a needle in
my hand to give me a shot of

back in a few minutes and .I

Lightning Kills 16 Cows
This summer the area, has experienced numerous severe thunderstorms
which- have moved through the area. In the photo above, 16 head of cattle
were killed by a single bolt of lightning as they huddled under a lone pine in
the middle of a pasture. The cattle, owned by Harry Herrington, were on pas-
turage located two mile's west, of Wewahitchka on Highway 22. The loss was
especially painful according to Herrington-because 12 of the downed cattle
were registered charolais, and the herd was uninsured.

To Partner With County
Billy Williams, one of the
owners of Beacon Hill Therapy

the board to introduce a proposal
to :partner withe county and
county employees to offer welt-
ness and occupational therapy
Williams explained that the
ultimate goal would be to reduce
the county's workman's compen- .
station insurance rate by putting
together a "total program" that
would lower the county's and its
employees' risk of job-related
Injuries. He outlined a plan that
would be provided at a very
reduced rate (under $10 per
month) for county employees. '

"This is sort of like preventative

Harassment By PSJPD
On September 6, 1999, I was
stopped by an officer with the
PSJPD for crossing over the white
line on the right hand side of
Highway 98 in front of the Tapper
home. What started out as a rou- .
tine traffic stop turned into an
hoiiur of horror for me, at the'
hands of the PSJ police'-fficers. I
was told marijuana was "found" in
my vehicle even though I have
never possessed marijuana. My
vehicle was searched. I was treat-
ed as if I were a criminal and was
adjudicated guilty by the officers
conducting their "investigation."
I am a female senior citizen; I
am a part time resident of Gulf
county. I love Gulf County and the
many friends and business asso-
ciates I have here. I was horrified
at the gestapo tactics I endured
on Monday, September 6. Citizens
of Port St. Joe, wake up and see
what your Police Department is
doing. They are not only seeking
out tourists. They are lying in wait
for you and me. There are perma-
nent residents of your community
who have been harassed by police
officers. Do not stand by and
allow this to happen to Port St.
Joe. Contact your Mayor and City
Commissioners. I have many
interests in Gulf County. In the
past, I looked forward to being
able to come to Gulf County. Now,
I actually dread having to come to'
your city. This is a travesty.,

scczre of the night, early in the
second quarter. followed by a suc-
cessful extra point run conversion
to |nake the score eight to zero.
The Dolphins responded with-
a twvo-play. 80 yard drive, with the
Dolphin halfback scoring on a
thillling 55 yard run around the
right side. The Dolphins' quarter-
back then converted two extra
points with a run.
Next, a great defensive stand
'stalled the Panthers who turned
the ball over on downs to the
Dolphins with less than two min-
utes left in the first half.
Following two powerful up-,
the-middle runs by the fullback,
the Dolphins' halfback ran
around the left side of a strong
front line, resulting in a score just
before halftime. With no time left
on the clock, the extra point con-
version fell incomplete in the end

This Week's Fishing Report
For September 5th to 12th ..
The weather is. still hot. Hurricane Floyd is churning our way and
putting a bad east wind on the Gulf of Mexico. The red tide is sneaking
around in the gulf, but the fish are biting as good as ever.
The kings are still in the deeper water as the water temperature is
still warm. That should change in the next few days. Offshore bottom
fishing is producing good catches of scamp, grouper, and amberjack. You
can still catch your limit of two red snapper on the nearshore wrecks and
reef balls. They must be 18" long.
The redfish will eat all your bait while you are trying to catch one
small enough to keep and the pompano provided some good action on the
beach last week. Look for the birds and catch your limit of Spanish, both
in the bay and outside St. Joe Peninsula.

Time for Fall Landscape Preparation
September is a very busy
month for dedicated garden hob-
byists in our "Sunshine State". A
new vegetable gardening season is
here. Now's the time to make
preparations for planting annuals
and ornamental shrubs. Also, this
is a good time for a general clean-
up of home grounds. Since warm
weather is still with us, we need to
continue to be watchful for
insects and disease' problems.
If you want a flower garden
this fall, now's the time to decide
on a location and start preparing
the soil. You should try to locate
the garden bed in an area that
receives full sun for the least half
the day. If possible, stay away
from large trees. Tree roots will
quickly use any nearby fertilizer
and water. You wvant to grow your
flowers in a spot where trees won't
compete for soil 'moisture and
Florida gardeners may choose
from a wide selection 'of attractive
annuals for fall planting. Some of
the hardy species, which will tol-
erate cold weather, include
alyssum, candytuft, dianthus,
baby's breath, verbena, phlox,
calendulas, petunias, pansies.
snapdragons, and 'sweet peas. All
of these, which can be planted in
late September, should, be readily
available at mopt gardens centers
throughout our state.
During September and
October, a substance called gib-
berellic acid is ,often used on
camellias. When properly
employed, gibberellic acid
increases flower size, and pro-
duces blooms much sooner than
would be possible' without the

The Warrior Postal Service, Warrior Credit Union, and Warrior School Store, some of the campus' student-operated businesses, are:part of

appropriate individual progression; and 3/4 Combo, which houses third and fourth graders together instructed by two regular education teach-

The looping class at WES is

Boswell, a relaUve newcomer to
WES, has accepted the challenge
The practice of looping offers
both academic and, social bene-
fits. When teachers move up with
their classes, the first, few weeks
of the second year are more pro-
ductive because the teachers do
not need that time to become
familiar with each child's learning
style, strengths and weaknesses,
interests and home situation.
Looping provides more time
for some students to learn basic
skills without the need for reten-
tion. There are more opportuni-
ties for bonding, both between the
teachers and students and
between the teachers and par-
Social benefits include dimin-
ished apprehension about the
new school year and more time to
establish positive peer relation-
ships. For students who require
school as a social safety net, loop-
ing provides increased support.
An enhanced sense of school
and group as a "community" is
provided; permitting shy students
to develop self-confidence.
The social interactions among
adults and students are not sim-
ply a means to an end. They are
education itself. The purpose of
looping is the promotion of
strong, extended, meaningful,
positive interpersonal relation-
ships between teachers and stu-
dents that foster increased stu-
dent motivation and, in turn,
stimulate improved, learning out-
comes for students.
'WES is proud to offer this
alternative classroom grouping
and is confident that Ms. Boswell,
her students, and their parents
will bring our goals to fruition.

lesterol levels dropped from 213
mg/dL. to 203 mg/dL. But that's
still high enough to increase the
risk for heart disease.
