Gulf County commissioners
moved one step closer to furnish-
ing sewer service to the Beacon
Hill/St. Joe Beach area during-
their regular meeting last
Tuesday.
The board agreed to proceed
with applications for funding-in
the form of low interest
loans/grants-to finance the
approximately $7 million project.
Several different options for
financing are being sought to


County Trims 1/2 Mill Off Budget


There was a sudden major
turn of events during Monday
evening's final budget hearings
for Gulf County. Commissioners
unanimously supported a motion
by board member Warren Yeager
to support a 1/2 mill reduction in
millage rates.
By a narrow margin (3-2)
commissioners had recommended
leaving.millage rates at last year's
level (7.5883) prior to Monday's
.final budget hearings. But, follow-
ing pleas from several local prop-
erty owners,business people, and
residents, the board agreed to
lower those rates to 7.0883-a
1/2 mill reduction.
"Local businesses have had a
lot of problems," explained Wayne
Taylor. He further noted the num-
ber of jobs that have been lost in
recent years due to economic
problems and how small busi-
nesses have suffered. During that
same time span, property values


have escalated in the downtown
area and he felt lowering millage
rates would help those already
struggling merchants.
Curtiss Low, who spoke at the
first budget hearing, gave an
answer to commission chairman
Tommy Knox's question, "Do you
think your property is appraised
too high?"
He responded stating that the
market sets the value of property
but not the taxes.
Knox responded, "You ought
to be a politician."
During discussion of Yeager's
motion, which was seconded by
Commissioner Nathan. Peters. Jr..
Commissioner John Stanley,
requested clarification concerning
how much a 1/2 mill reduction'
*would reduce the budget and
what the rollback rate would be.
Chairman Knox called for a
short recess of the. meeting, to
allow Deputy Clerk Doug
Birmingham and Financial Officer
Becky Noms time to figure the
requested information.
Birmingham told the board
that a 1/2 mill reduction would
still amount to a 3% increase over
the rollback rate (approximately
$160,000). This wil equal an
approximate $400.000 reduction
in taxes from the 7.5883 mills the
board had previously proposed.
Board members did discuss
the continued need to focus on.
paving roads and replacing coun-'
ty equipment that is reaching the
end of its useful life.
Chairman Knox then 'called
for the vote to lower the village. !


which passed unanimously. The
reductions will" be made from
reserve contingency and cash


brought forward line items within
the budget.
After the vote ,was taken,


those present spontaneously
applauded the commission for its
decision.

Navigating the entrance of Mexico Beach's canal has been a tricky and difficult task throughout
the summer months. Users of the waterway are anxiously awaiting for a solution to the problem.


Mexico Beach Boaters Hot Over


Canal Dredging Problems/Permits


One of the major arteries of
Mexico Beach is in danger of
totally clogging up and most visi-
tors. residents, and business.
operators are not happy about it.
< AlLsunimer long, the Mexico
Beach Canal has been plagued
with problems as boats entering
and exiting the canal have battled
shallows created by sandbar
build-up just outside the
entrance.
Mexico Beach City Manager
Frank Healy explained that the
unusual prevailing weather this
year has created the build-up of
the sandbar. Boat operators have
exited the canal then run along
, the shoreline to the vicinity of the
Mexico Beach pier. then crossed
over into the Gulf throughout
much of' the summer as the city
has tried to get relief.


Recently that option has been
taken away because the sandbar
has built up to thepier. making it
difficult for boats to get into the
Gulfs water by dodging the sand-
bar.
A few weeks ago it was report-
ed in The Star thatan emergency
permit had been received from the'.
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) to allow the city.
to dredge outside the mouth of.
the canal and maintain a path
across the sandbar, thus protect-
ing an important part of the local
economy.
Compliant Filed
Sounds like a wonderful story
line-community needs emer-
gency assistance; big brother,
helps preserve local economy dur-
ing the height of tourist season-'
not quite.
A complaint was filed with the
Corps of Engineers saying the
City of Mexico Beach was dredg-
ing at night and discharging its
spoils onto local beaches. The
brakes were put on and all per-
mits are now on hold until the
problem is resolved.
Tuesday afternoon (Septem-
ber 21st), Healy met with Alice
Kirkland, of the- Corps of
Engineers, and Jim Norton and
Jerry Smithwick, representatives
from Congressman Allen Boyd's
office, to'discuss the problems
and answer the complaint's
questions.
Healy said he showed the
group that the claims were obvi-


Port St. Joe city commission-
ers finalized several price changes
for various city services and
cemetery lots during the board's
regular meeting Tuesday evening.
The board had discussed a
need to get somewhat in line with
what other communities, cities,
and counties were charging to
perform some local services.
Water and sewer taps were at the
top of the list. While Port St. Joe
is charging $200 for water taps
and $400 for sewer taps, most
everyone around is charging well
over $1,000 for the same service.
The board decided to close
that gap somewhat, setting water
taps at $1,050 and sewer taps at
$1,250.
Commissioners also agreed to
set rates for cemetery lots at
$300, $400, $600, and $800 for
one, two, four, and eight space
lots. Perpetual care lots are $500
and. $1,000 for one and two lot
spaces. There will also be a


ously false and discussed and
explained the confusion over the
permits. He said Kirkland will
report back to the Corps of
Engineers and should have an
* 'answer some time next week on
the issues. '"'
If all goes well, Mexico Beach
could be back in business dredg-
ing the sandbar next week, if not,
the Corps could cite the city for
violation of permits and even levy
penalties.
Canal Still Major Problem
While all of this goes on,
boats are still having a tremen-
dously difficult time using the
Mexico Beach Canal.
"Some of the larger boats, it
depends on the tide (high tide)
whether they can go in or out of
the canal," Healy said.
Healy said every effort was
being made to resolve the prob-
lem, and that the city was also
currently in the process of begin-
ning negotiations for a permanent
dredging permit for the sandbar
area outside the mouth of the
canal. The city already has a per-
manent permit for areas within its
canal.
SMany of the local residents
and business people consider this
issue to be one of the most Impor-
tant economic problems the city
has ever faced. Without a naviga-
ble entrance to the Gulf of Mexico,
there is no way for boat owners in
Mexico Beach to access one of:the
major jewels in the community's
crown.

Red Tide Serves Some Good

St. Joseph Bay Committee Hears Report From Conservation Commission


The subject of red tide was
examined by an expert at last
Thursday's meeting of the St. Joe
Bay Committee. What has been a
pest to local people for the past
several days, has in reality been
the thinning out of'surplus trash
fish in the Gulf of Mexico.
Beverly Roberts, research
administrator, Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion, Florida Marine. Research
Institute of St. Petersburg was the
featured speaker telling her audi-
ence more than they wanted to
know about the red tide phenom-
enon which periodically strikes
the Gulf Coast.
Red tide has been document-


ed, since the early eighteen hun-
dreds and surely dates back fur-
ther than that, according. to Ms.
Roberts. Known by the scientific
name of Gymnodinium breve, it
has also been known by, several,
other names in the past. Growth
factors such as light, tempera-
ture, salinity, and nutrients trig-
ger the growth and movement of
the red tide.
Gulf Has a Slight
Incident of Red Tide
"Gulf .County has a slight
incident of the visitor compared
with other sections of Florida,"
Rbberts said. "We have records of
less than four visits to county


Beverly Roberts outlines information concerning red tide
outbreak.


beaches in 21 years where it reg-
ularly visits the Tampa area
where our office for studying it is
located."
Good to Eat
Ms. Roberts pointed out that
the red tide didn't make seafood
unfit for human consumption,
even though it kills the sea ani-
mals. She said she had eaten fish
which had been killed by the
growth and shrimp as well.
"The only portions of seafood
affected by the red tide organisms
are the digestive tracts, which
makes oysters, at risk to eat and is
the reason we close the bays dur-
ing instances of red tide infec-
tion," according to Roberts.
She said the current kill
which has affected several dol-
phins and turtles is because of
their dietary habits. These species
feed on the whole fish which
includes the digestive tract.
Tammy Summers, Apalach-
icola National Estuarine Research
Reserve, reported approximately
20 dolphin and 15 turtles have
been found dead with,strong sus-
pect of being the result of red tide.
She said the strongest impact
from the tide in the Gulf county
area has been in St. Joe Bay
where a high bacterial count was
located.
Her reports have closed the
Indian Pass and Indian Lagoon
areas to shellfishing even though
the report was low to medium.
Their practice is to close an area if
it has as many as 1,000 parts per
liter (ppl). The St. Joe Bay count
was near 10,000 ppl.
Ms. Roberts said that there
aren't many public health con-


cerns over red tide illnesses, but
pointed out the main ones were
respiratory irritation, dermatitis,
infections from punctures, and
slight biotoxin. She said that any
people suffering from either of
these effects tend to.recover to a
normal condition in just a day or
two without treatment, indicating
that there isn't a high cause of
concern.
Marine animals on the other.
hand suffer a great deal. It
.attacks Invertebrate, fish, turtles,
birds, and other marine mam-
mals, with fish being the.start of
the chain. The other animals are
affected by eating the affected
fish. Their prognosis invariably
death from the organism.
The organism which causes
red tide is plant-like in nature,
and carried by winds and tides. It
originates offshore and affected
fish wash ashore.
Mark Moore presented a
short video which he had taken in
St. Joe Bay of fish caught in the
red tide. The fish were jumping
about, swimming erratically,
schooling up, and generally acting
in a disoriented mariner in their
death throes. The fish were most-
ly bait fish. Moore said it was the
first time he had ever seen such
as he had filmed. for showing at
the bay meeting.
The tides usually begin 10 to
40 miles offshore and are most
common from August through
February of each year. They have
been documented at least once
along the entire Gulf and Atlantic
coastlines of Florida. Red tides
have been reported worldwide in
every ocean, but known by differ-
ent names.

Half Mill Reduction


Better Than Nothing

Now, If Only the School Board Will

Vote a Similar Reduction in Millage
THE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS FELL back on their budget
plans Monday evening at their public hearing session, and are to
be congratulated for their reaction to public wishes in the matter.
They didn't roll back the millage all the way to the "roll back"
numbers, but the stride they made in that direction is so much
better than their original position. Still, the village is too high,
taking present circumstances into consideration. It should have
been all the way to the "roll back" millage, and perhaps, even
beyond. A millage rate of 7.0883, as, the budget now stands, is a
pretty hefty financial plan to ask our people to underwrite, given
the uncertainty of the present situation the county finds itself in.
True, matters could change for the better. However, let's hold
our programs until things do get better. Anyone can add more
money to a budget plan but only a good manager can make do
with what is available.
WE DO NOT ADVOCATE USING our rainy day fund to make
up any tax shortfall, either. It hasn't rained, yet! It has thundered
a couple of times, but the rainfall hasn't started, yet.
It's alright .for the county to spend the interest being made off
the rainy day fund, but not the principal. Let's be frugal with our
savings. After all, it was too hard to get into the saving mode, to
fritter it away at the first lame excuse.
'The commission desires to provide money to pave roads .
now! We've lived without those roads being paved this long; a lit-
tle while longer without them won't hurt us.
Possibly, next year's budget will be a little more flexible. It will
be time, then, to consider any new programs we might wish.
People will still grumble in good times at tax increases, but, at
least, then, they'can pay them with a little more ease. You'll not
hear any objections from this corner if you publicize your program
and not increase taxes too much in order to finance them.
The real test will be; can we afford them?
NOW, IF ONLY THE SCHOOL BOARD will follow in the coun-
ty's; tracks with its budget.
Maybe it isn't too late to reduce the budget, although we know
it is too late to increase it.
The school board would gain the favor of the hard-pressed
Gulf County taxpayers if it was to reduce its budget by a half mill,
as the county has done.
This wouldn't reduce them to that magic "roll back", rate, but
it would show the board's good faith toward the taxpayers. It
would show they made an attempt to hold the line.


Keep An Open Mind

uation than they now have", in regards to the desired realignment
of U, S. H ighwa,' 98, 'tiirn out to be fact ihfstead 'fTfictiori;'he will

Those efforts are to relocate the highway, back from the water-
front and follow a new course the St. Joe Company will outline in
a public hearing on September 30.
We should all attend that meeting with an open mind.

ing, or you could could cost. your county a viable exit during times
of storm or natural disasters.

THE ST. JOE COMPANY HAS MONEY to spend. We have an
opportunity to see them spend that money in a manner which will
'do us all some good. Let's come, listening, with the thought Iin
mind of objecting, only if the plans are going to do us harm.
We can see where continuing to leave the road where it is'can
eventually do us harm. If it is moved, with the correct thought of
the future, it could' do us good.
'The present road cannot be four-laned. '
The present road cannot support, much more traffic than it
presently carries.
The present road is dangerously close to the adjoining build-
ings.
A little forward thinking can correct all these probleins.


Hunker Down With Kes


by Kesley Colbert


Once Upon A Time ...


.-.well sir, that big black
bear just'stood up on his hind
legs and stared ole Ben right in
the face. Ben's just. grinning
away. Blackie leans in so Ben can
smell his breath . they're half
an inch apart! Ben never let up
on that grin. I tell you again; I
was a mite scared myself for sure
but ole Ben don't move, he does-
n't flinch, he doesn't blink ."
I wasn't blinking myself. And
I leaned in closer so as not to
miss a word. Mr. Charlie
Featherstone was knee deep in a
story about Ben Eubanks. Ben
disappeared out in, those' thick
woods down .at Jewel Switch
Bottom years before I was born.
"He grins that bear, right
down to the ground; I'm, telling
this story with my hand up. It's
the gospel truth .... Blackie was
pure hypnotized by ole Ben's
grin. Well sir. Ben tickles that
bear's belly for a, spell, grinning,
all the while, 'til both seem to tire
of the game and we backed out of
there, careful to keep Ben's
pearly whites between us and Mr.
Bear. ."
I kind'a wondered if a man
could actually grin down a beat,
but I knew to hold my tongue.
Young boys sitting' with grown-


ups in 1958 were to be seen-but
not heard I silently shifted my
turned up edgeways Royal Crown
Cola crate an inch or so forward
so I could lean back against the
wall . and waited.
Getting too quick has ruined
many a good story..
And no one who ever "sat a
Spell" on the front porch of
Woodrow Kennon's Dry Goods,
Mercantile and Grocery Store
could ever be accused of rushing
a "good one."
"I've heard tell of folks who
could grin one down," Mr. Charlie
continued after a dramatic pause
punctuated by a stream of Red
Horse chewing tobacco he let fly
over the top rail, "but that's the
first time I ever actually was a
party to it. To this day it's still the
dangdest thing. I ever saw.
"He's got to where he'd.
grin'em down and dance with
them. He'd talk Moses Tatum and
his fiddle into coming along with
us. I'm telling you it was a sight!
Mose sawing down on Black
Mountain Rag and ole Ben and
that bear going 'round and 'round

From Mr. Kennon's front
porch I could hear that fiddle. I
could see that improbable scene
unfold in my mind's eye.
"What do, you reckon hap-
pened to Ben Eubanks? It's
strange how he just up and dis-
appeared." Ogden Culpepper
thankfully asked the question
that I could not.


"Well. sir." here was another
long pause. another stream of
Red Horse was sent forth. Mr.
Charlie rocked his chair down so
hard the front legs thudded to the
plank floor-he waited for the
sound to fade away and then said
with a grin, 'Poor ole Ben one day
ran across a blind bear!"
I see where they're having the
27th annual National Storytelling
Festival 'in Jonesborough,
Tennessee, the first week of
October., I sure am tempted to
make the trip up there. I haven't
been to a real storytelling festival
since I "left the front porch of
Woodrow Kennon's lo those many
years ago.
In., the pre-television, pre-
computer, pre-microwave, pre-
fast foods days when folks had
more time than they do today a
good 'y-arning" was a treat to
behold.' And on a rainy Saturday
morning ll the old men would
gather up and try to "out' do" one
another;
And. they weren't re-hashing
any of that Hansel and Gretel
stuff either. These were real sto-
ries about real people. Like Ben
Eubanks. Or Daniel. Boone. Or
Paul Bunyan. And most any of
the old men who gathered up
could spit out a story at the drop
of a hat! They could transport
you from that porch to near 'bout
any place or any time with a twist
of a word and wave of a hand.
Your imagination supplied
the pictures and filled in the
gaps.. .


Yes sir. a good storyteller was
held in high esteem in our little
community. He could "do you
one" on the great railway crash of
'49. the tornado that carried
Arthur NMullin's corn crib across
Carroll Lake. the mule that
thought it was a coon dog, or the
bigfoot sightings up on Sparerib
Mountain with, equal aplomb.'
The brochure for this annual
Jonesborough Festival says .that
storytelling is a lost art. I doh't
know about that! Charlie
Featherstone is still alive. Arid I
guarantee you, if he is breathing,
he's a'telling someone about' Ben
Eubanks.
I wish I'd' a'had a tape
recorder ,for all 'those Saturday
morning sessions, 'back 'on
Woodrow's porch., Boy 'howdy!
What a shining time!
We want "moving pictures"
today. You have to finish in .two
minutes or' everyone "flips" to the
next story. You naturally have to
have an agent. And a publicist.
And you have to stop five times
for Nike and beer commercials.'.

Maybe .storytelling Is a lost
art.
Or maybe it just needs a little
push.
I'll get my "best one" ready if
you, will.
We don't heed to go out-of
town, we just need to find a front
porch. I'll let you go first .
Respectfully,
Kes

Recent Weather Is JusMade For A Brisk :Walk Or Slow Trot!


I'M NOT GIVEN to writing
very many columns about one
subject; especially in succession.
I wrote a column about the
weather a few weeks ago. so I'm
sort of reluctant to write another
so soon.
The weather foisted on'us by'.
the event of hurricane "Floyd"
skirting the east coast of Florida
and the temperatures it brought
to us 'on Thursday, made it
almost imperative that I mention
the almost perfect weather we are
forced to endure. On more than
one occasion, a person has
remarked to me, last Thursday,,
about how marvelous the weath-
er was.
It was perfectf
The breeze was blowing, gin-
gerly, and the humidity was just'
right. The sun was shining
brightly and it almost made me
want to get out and exercise. I
fought, the urge, off, though,'. and

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1999 PAGE


Cong. Boyd Honored by Fla. Forestry


* -. Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) has been named
"Legislator of the Year" by the
Florida Forestry Association. This
distinctive award, given annually
by the association in recognition
of those public servants that sup-
port forestry community, was
awarded to Congressman Boyd for


.r Our Re


Wri


Letters


Supports

P.S.J.P.D.


.Dear Editor,
I 'This letter is in response to
.the lady who had an unfortunate
incident with our local Port St.
Joe Police Department. While I
* sympathize with her feelings and
-the way she interpreted her treat-
.ment, I frid the use of the word
"gestapo" regarding the St. Joe
Police Department rather hard to
comprehend.
Hitler's gestapo used neigh-
bor against neighbor to inform on
each other if .they did anything
.against the -state, and took the
word of the informer as fact. The
gestapo was the judge and jury.
The fact that there is little
crime in St. Joe so the police do
have more time to fully investigate
any perception of wrong I believe
doesn't julstify the use of the word
gestapo.
The very first night I moved
here I accidentally turned down
,3rd. St. the wrong way at Rich's
IGA and was pulled over. and
given a warning ticket. Where I
came from (Orlando) I would have
received a regular ticket. However,
our police force took the time-and
listened to my explanation, took
:Ithe circumstances into considera-
,tion and did what they seemed
best and so did I.
S Having been arrested by the
"Port St. Joe Police upon the order
,of;' a non St. Joe policeman, or
:Gulf County Sheriff, I can say
.that I was treated courteously and
with respect b) the St. Joe Police
Department ari the Gulf County
Sheriffs Office. These two fine law
*enfdrcetrMent agencies are respon-
st for the low crime in our-area.
Unlike thev.gman .Who wrote
the letter I am responding to,
0' these two law enforcement agen-
cies did not treat me like a crimi-
Snal and certainly did not act like
I the "'gestapo." The fact that the
\ writer was a senior citizen should
not have affected the way any
investigation was handled.
Citizens of Port St.' Joe, since
I rarely leave the county I can not
speak for law enforcement in
other areas, but I can assure you
.that the St. Joe Police Depart-
ment is not laying in wait for you
to exercise "gestapo" techniques. I
feel sure that if Police Chief Jay
Leiffert had been informed of your
experience rather than a letter to
the editor, the situation would
j have been resolved to your satis-
4i faction. Please be patient with the'
faults of others; they have to be
patient with yours.
I would like to take this
opportunity to ask anyoneI read-


his many years ol outstanding
service to forestry families,
throughout North Florida.
A fifth generation farmer and
landowner, Congressman Boyd
was first elected to the U.S. House
of Representatives in 1997.
Displaying the diplomacy, easy
manner, steady convictions, and


policial savvy that marked his
quick rise to power in the Florida
House of Representatives, Boyd
has quickly established himself as
an influential member in the U.S.
Congress and a champion of tree
farmers and the entire agricultur-
al community.

ing this to realize that everything
you have is a present from God,
and usually when someone gives
you a present you give them one.
Give God the gift of believing in
Him, letting Him know yqu have,
complete faith in Him. I' believe
this pleases Him more than
anything you can do or'say.
If you have children, help
them to know and believe in God,
this is something you should do
yourself and not depend on some-
one else to tell them.
The government has arranged
it so the school system can't tell
and teach them this. It is up to
you, take your responsibility and
take the time now, I mean right
now, you have put it off long
enough if you haven't worked on
this on a daily basis. Letting your
co-workers, friends, neighbors,
etc. know of your belief or if they
don't believe maybe your example


will get them to believe.
Just remember, when you are
not setting a Christ-like example,
satan is beaming with delight and
smiling.
In closing, I am truly sorry
that the woman had such a bad
experience with the St. Joe Police
Department and ask her to
remember that section of the
Lord's Prayer, "...forgive me my
trespassers as I forgive those who
trespass against me." Whatever
trespass you feel you experienced,
forgive those who you feel tres-
passed against you. Be patient
with the faults of others; they
have to be patient with yours.
May the favor of God be with
you all.
God Bless You,
-Bill Laine

Not So Fast...


Dear Editor,
Everyone from out of town is
always so fast to criticize our
police officers in PSJ. What gives?
They are paid to enforce the traffic
laws, and in my opinion, do a fan-
tastic job in this local area.
Ms. Joyner's letter last week
indicated she had crossed over a
white line on the side of the road.
Obviously, if normal-driving con-
ditions prevailed, she was in error
by doing so. What caused her to
cross over the line? Her letter
sounded like she was a little
embarrassed and now angry that
she was stopped. I am glad she
was stopped.
Whenever I am driving down
the road and a vehicle in front of
me crosses the line. first thing
that cones to mind is the person
may be impaired or under the'
influence of some type.
Regardless, female senior citi-
zen or not, I back off and get the
tag number and hope a police offi-
cer will soon appear. I am sure the
PSJ officers thought the same
when proceeding to investigate
further. Their years of training
and experience proliferated
search actions for cause, not good
old boys wanting to harass citi-
zens with Gestapo tactics. That
was a tacky shot.
I for one, having been an acci-
dent victim twice because of. traf-
fic \violators-don't want to be a
,' victim of another accident
because of someone's bad habits..
be it vehicle or otherwise and
wind up as a statistic.
I remember a few years back
when I was first on scene to help
Eric Ramsey on Highway 98 after
a terrible accident because some-


one crossed over the line. I don't
think our community majority
share your sentiment or feel any
different about their loved ones
and concern for safety on the
road.
If anyone dreads coming to
our county because our police are
doing their job and protecting our
interest. Well, I suggest you
stay where you live and stop try-
ing to influence a negative conno-
tation to the public about our offi-
cers by your letter. The letter is a
travesty. Of course I have seen
very few people who violate laws
ever actually admit they did some-
thing wrong. it is always the
other person.
I too have many interests 'In
S'Gulf County. and as another tax-,
paying property owner, who Is a
'permanent resident of this coun-
ty, I welcome these unsung heroes
of the community called police
officers and deputy sheriff's. I
cannot envision our streets or
highways without their patrolling
and protection. It is a job with lit-'
tle praise and low pay and very
few of us. would want to wear their
shoes.
As our little city of Port St. Joe
continues to grow we need this
kind of protection and enforce-
ment to moderate the influx of
violators who think nothing about
running drugs or alcohol, trash-
ing our streets, corrupting our:e
children, vandalism, theft, disre-
specting our laws and' statutes.
We.may fuss about some of the
things they do, and rightfully so at
times. but I sure would not
want to see the day when we did-
n't have them out on patrol. .

of timber areas from Panama City
through Tallahassee to
Jacksonville, Congressman Boyd
has already won a highly coveted
seat on the Appropriations
Committee where he hopes to
restore fairness in funding to the
needs of North Florida.
Congressman Boyd was
instrumental in winning an exten--
sion of the Conservation Reserve
Program's thinning deadline of
timberlands earlier this year. Last
year Congressman Boyd helped
kick off the Suwarinee County
Landowner Association. At this
inaugural meeting, Boyd demon-
strated his, facility with issues of
concern to landowners, dis-
cussing his ideas for future tax
code revisions and the potential
impact on landowners.
In Congress this session,
Congress-man Boyd is sponsoring
a bill to restore stability and pre-
dictability to the annual payments
made to states and counties con-
taining national forest system
lands.
I In presenting this award, the
association recognized that
Congressman Boyd has worked
hard to represent North Florida
timber families. Boyd is the first
Florida Congressman to ever
receive this prestigious award.

Assistant Warden Al Haskins
explained that the program goes
much deeper than that. Just last
week, GCI held a drawing for a
customized gym set built by Gulf
Forestry Camp crews. According
to Haskins, over $800 was gener-
ated through ticket sales with the
"project headed up :by Gulf
Forestry Camp and Major Samuel
Smit.
Money raised through the
Ticket sales will be forwarded to
the local chapter of the Florida
Council of Crime and Delinquen-
cy. Haskins said these are self
perpetuating funds that will be
recirculated back into the
community through the positive
impact of the local organization.
: -Haskins pointed out that GCI
"'pterseesfive different pnsori com-
,plexe, the main complex of GCI,
GCI's new annex. Gull" Forestry
Camp. Franklin Work Camp, and
Panama CCC. "All five are very
active in the Toys for Tots. pro-
gram," he said.
GCI, the annex, and Gulf
Forestry build nearly 2,000 toys
annually that are distributed to
area children. Franklin Work
Camp repairs and rebuilds used
bicycles, then donates them baqk
to children, and Panama City's
CCC collects canned goods and
clothing.


"Our plan are for his year&

Haskins added.
Work is already underway by
a host of Santa's helpers to con-.
struct, rebuild, and collect thou-
sands of surprises for elementary-
aged children in the area.

claimed the week of September 17th through 23rd as CONSTI-

all citizens fully understand the provisions and principles con-
tained in the constitution in order to support, preserve, and
defend it against all encroachment. The independence guaran-
teed to American, citizens, whether by birth or naturalization,

People stop on the street and say I'm good looking. I appreciate that! I think they like my French provincial roof
line and architectural shingles. I look taller than most other houses because I am! My foundation of piers and
brick lift me up over three feet and my ceilings and interior walls are as much as eleven feet high. With my 'hip"
French roof on top and my classic entrance portico. I'm a home to make an owner proud.
You will be pleased at how quiet and fuel efficient I am. My exterior walls are built especially thick and heavily
insulated and covered with "Bird" premium vinyl siding. I sure like that.lifetime warranty. It keeps my owners
happy because I'm maintenance-free and my electric bill is only $100 a month. More information by me, from

Burke Addresses Rotary Democrats Prepare to Choose "2000" Nat'l Convention Delegates


with Tobacco Awareness


"The war on tobacco use
among school kids is gaining
headway," Sebrina Burke, local-
coordinator of the Tobacco-Free
Partnership, told the Rotary Club
last Thursday. She said a more
than 19% reduction in students of
middle school age using tobacco
products was reported last year
alone.
Rachel Bixler presented an
illustrated address to the club
outlining the dangers of all sorts
of tobacco use from cigarettes to
smokeless tobacco. She listed
several chemicals which enter the
system from smoking cigarettes
such as acetate, cyanide, etc., all
poisonous substances.
In using, containers of M&M
candies, Bixler illustrated the
deaths from several different


causes including those from
tobacco. The causes such as mur-
der and suicide had only a few
candies in the bottorp of a con-
tainer while the cancer caused by
smoking had candies filling a
large jar by comparison.-
The speaker had examples of
at least six harmful chemicals
which enter a person's body
through smoking either directly
or indirectly.
She made a strong case
against smokeless tobacco, espe-
cially among student athletes,
listing 400 chemical effects to the
mouth and digestive system, 43 of
which can cause cancer.
She reported 334,000 people
die each year in the United States
from tobacco related diseases.

"Florida is noted for its great
diversity. At the 2000 national
convention, that diversity will be

as Democrats," Florida Demo-
cratic Party Chairman Charles
Whitehead said*
"We urge anyone interested in
becoming a delegate to contact
their County Democratic Party or
the Florida Democratic Party. Our
party is committed to equality for
all Floridians and it is vital that


the voice of all Floridians be heard
in this process."

287, and SR-30 near Allen
Memorial Way..
Recognizing the danger pre-
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on vehi-
cles being operated with defects
..such as bad brakes, worn tires
and defective lighting equipment.

directed to drivers who would vio-
late the driver license laws .of

checkpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equipment
and driver license laws of Florida
ensuring the protection of all
motorists.

Annual Drinking Water Quality Report


Mexico Beach Water System
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Quality Water Report. This report is designed to inform you
about the quality of water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe
and dependable supply of drinking water We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve
the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your.
water. Our water source is groundwater drawn from a series of four wells located in the Sand and Gravel and
Floridan aquifers.
I'm pleased to report that our drinking water is safe and meets federal and state requirements.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Frank Hall at (850)
648-3002. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please
attend any of our regularly scheduled council meetings. They are held on the second Tuesday of every month at
7:00 p. m.,(CST); Mexico Beach Civic Center.
The City of Mexico Beach, routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and
State laws. This table shows the results of our monitoring for the period, of January 1st to December 31st 1998.
As water travels over the land or underground it can pick up substances or contaminants such as microbes, inor-
ganic and organic chemicals, and radioactive substances. All drinking water, including bottled drinking water may
be reasonably expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. It's important to remember that
the presence of these contaminants does not necessarily pose a health risk.
As you can see by the following table, our system had no violations, We're proud that your drinking water
meets or exceeds all Federal and State requirements. We have learned through our monitoring and testing that
some contaminants have been detected. The EPA has determined that your water IS SAFE at these levels.

In the preceding table you will find many terms and abbreviations you might not be familiar with. To help you
better understandthese terms we've provided the following definitions:
Non-applicable-(N/A)-does not apply
Not Detected-(ND) laboratory analysis indicatess that the contaminants is not present.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter {mg/I -one part per million corresponds to one minute in two years
or a single penny in $10,000.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter-one part per billion corresponds to one minute in 2,000 years, or
a single penny in 910,000,000.
Picocuries per liter (pCi/L)-picocuries per liter is. a measure of the'radioactivity in water.
Action Level (AL)-the concentration of .a contaminant which, if exceeded,' triggers treatment or other require-
ments which a water system must follow. .
Maximum Contaminant Level-The "Maximum Allowed" (MCL) is the highest level of a contaminant that is
allowed in drinking water MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment tech-
nology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal-The "Goal" (MCLG) is the level of a contaminant in drinking water below
which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reser-
voirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves natu-
rally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from
the presence of animals or from' human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants,
septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban
stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwa-
ter runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-prod-
ucts or industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwa-
ter runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production
and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of cer-
tain contaminants in water provided by public'water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants
in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.
All drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts
of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health
risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by .calling the
Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.


Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Imuno-
compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ
transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particu-
larly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.
EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means ta lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbio-
logical contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
Please call our office if you have any questions.
We at the City of Mexico Beach work to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask that all our customers
help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our children's future.

Cooler weather has been wel-
comed by both fish and anglers
alike. Recent storms. have also
helped clear up the last remnants
of the red tide. As fall begins,
hopefullyy the fishing and the
waters will return to normal.
Freshwater fishing continues
to produce good catches of bream
and shellcrackers. As the weather
continues to cool, both bass and
crappie should become more
active. Jack Wingate on Seminole
reports excellent hybrid fishing on
Rattle-traps. Up and down the
bead Lakes, consistent catches of
bream on wigglers or crickets are
Reported.
With the red tide nearly gone,
good fishing along our beaches is
returning. Spanish are roaming
flhe coast and over nearshore
structures. Along,the beaches the
Spanish are running a bit small,
but on the buoy line over the last
week, some five to six pound
Spanish 'have been caught. Some
4 pf the bigger Spanish were caught
on king dusters with cigar mim-'
nows. Boats getting bites but no
hook-ups switched to mackerel
trees and caught plenty. Boats
venturing further offshore are
finding some nice kings and the ,
bottom fishing seems to be return-
ing to normal.

DO PHYSICIANS
TREAT THEMSELVES?


Of course not, unless there is no other avail-
able doctor; They know that anyone has great
difficulty trying to be objective about their own
9 ailments.
Sickness symptoms are most confusing, for
many diseases have similar pains or discomforts.
A headache can be the result of more than a
dozen different causes. The problem is to deter-
mine which one. When you are sick, do what
physicians do. They consult another physician.

and capped off the drive with a 37
yard touchdown run for a 28-14

We Can Fix Any Dent!
Danny Voyles, Owner I


Fixed


Bridge


Nearly half of all adult dental
patients need replacements for
one or more missing teeth. A great
many after-40 patients already
have such replacements. While a
single tooth can often be replaced
by an implant substitute, the most
common method is a fixed bridge.
.In this situation, teeth on
either side of the. space are
shaped so that a crown will fit over
them. Impressions are then taken,


from which permanent supporting-,
base crowns of gold or non-pre,-.
cious metal are made. The base'
crowns are finally laminated with
either plastic or porcelain. The per-
manent crowns are soldered to the,
artificial teeth. The completed',
bridge is cemented to the support-
ing teeth. It is immovable.
Advantages: ease of cleaning,
minimum adjustment and repair,
immovability, strengthening of
adjacent teeth, not to mention that
beautiful feel and appearance of
natural teeth. Your dentist will help
you consider the factors that could
affect the choice between a remov-
able bridge or one that is fixed.


Over the past twelve years, Dr. May and his staff have satis-'
fled thousands of individuals by delivering state of the art,
painless dentistry in a gentle and caring manner. Can Dr. May

Mrs. Weimorts, spent the
first four years of her teaching

'The paper'.ork that the state'
requires us to do," Mrs. Weimorts says,
"makes it hard for me to be a teacher. The

while. Teaching never gets old. The com-
puters that I use to teach are constantly
changing and so are the kids." Thank

Conscience

In First Timothy 1:19, we find,
"By rejecting conscience, certain
persons made shipwreck of their
faith."
Being a Christian requires
discipline. There are things
Christians can do and things
they can not do.


'United Methodist Church We are born with a conscience
in order that we can make deci-,
sions on morality. However, selfishness causes people to
reject the ways: God has set for us. Sometimes a person
does the very thing which they should not do.
When a Christian has fully accepted Christ it is easy
to tell right from wrong. Newborn Christians have to
work to perfect Christian decisions. A truly committed'
Christian can follow his conscience, because he belongs

HOSE BAPTISTS! They think they can do
anything they want to, and still be saved! How
many times have you heard such a remark?
In a recent Bible study class, one of the attendants
made the remark: "If a Christian should sin, and happen
to die before they ask forgiveness, they would be lost."
several of the others expressed agreement with that. Is
this what God's Word teaches? I think not.
Jesus said in Luke i8:19, when someone called him
good, "There is none good, save one, that is God." This
fleshly body in which we live is worldly and sinful still.
The Christian's soul is born of God, but the body will
perish, and will be redeemed and made new at the time
of resurrection. In Roman 7:18, Paul lamented, "I know
that in me (my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing."
In I John 2:1-2, God tells us, "These things I write
unto you, that you sin not. If anyone does sin, they have
an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, The
Righteous. He is the Propitiation for our sins."
The word, advocate means like a lawyer. The word,
propitiate means to take away anger and penalty.
In II Corinthians 1:21-22, The Word tells us, "He
which establishes us in Christ and annoints us, is God.
He has also SEALED us, and given us the Holy Spirit in
our hearts."
I JOHN 3:9 seems a contradiction, for it says.
"Whosoever is born of God does not Commit sin." The
word commit is the key word, and it means dtdia-ted to,
or wanting to sin. The born again child of Got never
"WANTS" to sin. They always strive to do right. Satan is
always there, however, tempting this old flesh to sin.
Thank God, sin will have no power over our new body.
"I will write my laws in their hearts. I will remember
their sins no more. "Hebrews 8:10-12.
What would a born again Christian "want" to do
that would displease their Heavenly Father? To the
contrary, A real Christian always wants to be in the
center of God's will. Praise His Holy Name!

Gulf Coast College Will Develop



Veterans' Outreach Business Center


September 16, Gulf Coast
Community College, Congress-
man Allen Boyd (D-North Florida)
and Senator Bob Graham (D-FL)
announced that the U.S. Small
Business Administration had
awarded GCCC's Small Business
Development Center a $150,000
grant to develop a Veterans'
Business Outreach Center'
(VBOC).

Approximately 1.7 million
Florida veterans will have finger-
tip access to assistance in setting
up and running successful small
businesses. Florida veterans are
part of 4.8 million veterans in an
eight-state .region who will be
served by the center, to be located
at the Bay County Small Business
Incubator.



September Is


The VBOC will provide a sin-
gle point of contact for veterans in
Alabama, Florida, Georgia,
Kentucky, Mississippi, North
Carolina, South Carolina and
Tennessee. The project is part of a
five-year initiative, which could
bring $750,000 to the.VBOC to
assist veterans.
Specifically, this veterans'
outreach' program will provide
small business counseling and
training and online seminars
' through an Intranet, the Internet
and video teleconferencing. The
VBOC will facilitate delivery of
services using links to existing
agencies in each, state and points
of contact with various organiza-
tions. All program materials will
meet the specific needs of veter-



Gynecologic


ans. In addition, veterans who are
business owners will work one-
on-one with counselors who will
develop individual business plans
and provide insight in making
businesses more successful.
"Our nation's veterans made
the ultimate sacrifices to protect
'the right and freedoms that
Americans hold so dear," said
Congressman Boyd. "I am pleased
that Gulf Coast Community
College, with assistance from the
.Small Business Administration,'
has found another way to help
America's Veterans in their post-
service endeavors. SBA's decision'
to appoint Gulf Coast Community
College a-, one ofa select few insti-
tutionris to 'implement the new
Veterans' Business Outreach
Program 'is a testament to the
quality work the Small Business '
Development Center is doing in


the Bay county area. I am happy I
could assist the center in their
effort to acquire this award."
"America's brave veterans
deserve every opportunity to suc-
ceed after their military service is
over," said Senator Graham. "This
grant will brig together federal,
.state, and local resources in
improving the lives of veterans
and strengthening our state's
small business sector with their
talents and experience."
For more that 20 years, small
business development centers
have supported small 'business
organizations. The VBOC will use
these centers' existing networks of '
agencies to develop programs to
meet the business needs or 'eter-
ans. It will also provide a central-
ly located point of contact, giving,
veterans a wealth of information ,
tailored to their needs. ,

Cancer Awareness Month


This year an estimated
75,400 women will be diagnosed
with one of the three most com-
mon gynecologic cancers; cervical,
uterine, and ovarian.
Cervical Cancer is the most
easily detected and treated gyne-
cological cancer. Prior to 1950,
cervical cancer was the leading
cause of cancer mortality in
American women. Now, thanks to
the test developed by Dr. George
Papanicolaou, it is the least com-
mon cause of death due to the
reproductive tract malignancy.
In 1999 an estimated 12,800
cases of invasive cervical cancer
will be diagnosed in the United
States. Approximately 4,800
women will die from a disease that
could have been prevented
through regular screening using
the pap test.
Early detection is directly
related to the rate of survival.
Eighty-eight percent of women
diagnosed in early stages will
reach the five-year survival mark,
while only 13 percent of those,
'diagnosed in late stages, after the
cancer has spread, will makeit to
year five.
Uterine (Endometrial)
Cancer is the most common can-
cer of the female reproductive
tract. In 1999 an estimated
37,400 wo6miene vill be diagnosed
with uterine cancer and 6,400 will
die. There has been a 50 percent
increase in deaths associated with
this diagnosis in the last 15 years.
The only routine screening
test for uterine cancer is a pelvic
exam. Fortunately, due. to symp-
toms such as vaginal bleeding
after menopause or irregular peri-
ods, women are prompted to see a
doctor and many cases are caught
at an early stage when the disease
is highly curable with an estimat-
ed five year survival rate of 95 per-
,cent.
For 'those who are diagnosed
at an advanced stage (the cancer
has spread beyond the uterus) the
survival rate falls to 66 percent.
Ovarian Cancer is the dead-
liest of the gynecological cancers
and is the fifth leading cause of
cancer deaths among women in
the United States. It strikes one in
55 women and an estimated
14,500 women die from it. each
year.
Ovarian cancer is so lethal
because it is generally not diag-
nosed until advanced stages. The
signs are symptoms-which
include nausea, bloating, consti-,
pation, and. abdominal pain--are
,often subtle and can be mistaken
for gastro-intestinal problems.
The only routine screening is


a pelvic exam, which still may not
detect problems until in an
advanced stage. If ovarian cancer
is suspected, a CA-125 blood test
and trans-vaginal ultrasound
with color doppler imaging are a
doctor's .best diagnostic tools
short of surgery; however, they
are not fool-proof. and not, cost-
effective enough to be considered
for routine screening.
When diagnosed 'and treated
early, five year survival rates can
be greater than 90 percent; how-
ever, only about one in.four ovari-.
an cancers is diagnosed' at an
early stage and thus the realistic,
survival rate is closer to 40 per-
cent.
Women of all ages are at'
risk. Every woman over 18 years
of age should have a yearly pelvic,
exam.
Women who have an annual
gynecological exam, including- a
pap test and bi-annual recto-vagi-
nal pelvic exam are proactively.
decreasing their risk by increas-
ing the chances that a gynecologi-
cal cancer will be caught early,
when it is most treatable.
Review the symptoms out-
lined here. if any persist for more
then two to three weeks, take
action.'
If preliminary results indicate
a possible diagnosis of cancer ask
for the consultation with a gyne-
cological oncologist, a cancer spe-
cialist whose training is first that
of an obstetrician/gynecologist
and who has trained for an addi-
tional three to four years in the
treatment, biology, and pathology
of gynecological cancers.
If surgery is required and can-
cer is suspected a gynecological
oncologist represents a woman's
best chance for survival.
Consult your physician if you
experience any of these symptoms
for more than two to three weeks:
Cervical Cancer:
Symptoms
*Bleeding after intercourse
*Excessive discharge
*Abnormal bleeding between'
periods
Factors which may increase
your risk
*Socioeconomic class
*Smoking
*High number of sexual partners
*Early age of first intercourse
*HIV and HPV infections
Uterine Cancer:
Symptoms
*Bleeding after menopause
*Irregular ,bleeding _h'.before
menopause.
*Pain during intercourse
*Difficulty or painful urination

Prudential Spirit of Community Awards
Wants to Recognize Students in Grades Five Through 12 for Their Contributions


So much of the news about
young people these days seems to
be focused on kids in trouble.
What often gets overlooked is the
fact that many young people
across the country doing wonder-
ful, extraordinary things to
improve their communities-help-
ing the less fortunate, protecting
the environment, promoting racial
understanding, and making a dif-
ference in countless other ways.
: This has become increasingly
evident to Prudential over the past
foWr years as a result of The
Prudential Spirit of Community
Awards-a nationwide youth
recognition program based solely
on volunteer service. Through this
program, we have seen an incred-
ible number of inspiring, commit-
ted young people who really care
about their communities and are
determined to make them better
places to live. Their stories stand
in inarked contrast to the all-too-
common stereotypes of America's
youth-and give us ample reason
to be optimistic about the future
of our nation.

Special Report From This Home
Owners built me in 1995. Lived together with them quite comfortably since then. I know they must leave me now
and I will miss their kindness and how clean they have kept me.

My builder was owner. This makes me different. Extra care, he took, to construct me in a fine fashion with the
best materials and craftsmanship. Instance I rest upon a frame subfloor with "silent floor" trusses, not a slab. I
never squeak! My floor covering is genuine oak from the old Oak Grove skating rink. (I appreciated that.) You
know how smooth and cool they feel. If I say much more I know I'll have to mention how quiet I am inside
because my builder took care to insulate my floor and walls and roof exquisitely.

Much more I have to say about myself as u home but for now I would mention how beautiful it is to look out from
my double-hung, double-insulated wood windows with aluminum clading and frame on my exterior. My dear
owners are so proud of my windows and I hope you wil like them too. More information by me, from me, soon.
(Read more of my story on the social page).
