After Tragedy


"!Miracle Girl"


Reclaims Life'
By' Jessica Summers
She walks down the hall-her
'face displays a youthful smile at
what or whomever awaits at the
end of that hall, while her brow
furrows in determination as she
focuses on telling her legs to walk
as balanced and poised as they
used to., ,- !.. i
With this same rock-solid.
determination. Samantha
Ambrose has walked her way past
all expectations once held for her
recovery after the horrific automo-
bile accident that almost took her
life November 15, 1998.



















Samantha Ambrose
The night of the accident,
Sam, as she isR.known by all of her
family and friends, was returning
from a party Cape San Blas,
traveling doa SR 3P-E. Sam was
in the car with one other person,
S her friend Nicole Bellinger, 17 at
that time. The events that caused
the overturning of the vehicle are
not known. However, the car was
overturned and Sam was thrown
from it. Nicole received minor
O) injuries.
Sam was taken via ambu-
lance to the hospital, accompa-
nied by.Dr. Vince Ivers, who later
was. one of the many health pro-
fqssionals who labeled her "The
Miracle Girl".
Upon her placement in the
intensive care unit at Bay Med-
Slal, the trauma to her body and
brain was accessed. Eerily, her
body was almost completely
undamaged. The only.visible mark
I was a long laceration on the side
of her face. This was an illusion,
I however, for the intense swelling
bf her brain had induced a coma.
Wait. The only thing that
could be done was wait. Susie and
David Ambrose, Sam's parents,
could only sit and watch the mon-
itors and machines as critical
moments passed for their daugh-
ter.
The prognosis, recalls Susie,
was simply "If you have faith-_
well, that's all you have."
Samantha remained in ICU
for two and a half weeks. She

ivq,


It was suggested in the
September 16 edition of The Star
that 'motions to change Florida
Coast Paper Company's bank-
ruptcy case from Chapter 11 reor-
ganizational bankruptcy to
Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy
could force action one way or the,
other on the continued shutdown
of the mill.


J. Patrick Floyd, attorney for
the Gulf County Tax Collector,
said Wednesday morning that all
indications from the Delaware
bankruptcy court seem to indi-
cate that Florida Coast Paper
Company's bondholders are
working on a plan to present to
the bankruptcy court.
'Florida Coast Paper Company


was to have held a hearing on
conversion of the bankruptcy
Wednesday morning, September
29,. at 10:00 a.m. in U.S.
Bankruptcy Court in Maryland.
Sources have indicated that the
hearing has been delayed until
October 5th at 9:30 a.m. This was
done by mutual consent of all
parties because of conflicts in
schedules.
In the meantime, bondhold-
ers filed and received an exten-
sion on the September 20th date
to present a plan to the bankrupt-
cy court under the, original'
Chapter II bankruptcy proposal.
The court did grant that extension
until Tuesday. September 28, at
4:00 p.m., but it was expected
that the Tuesday deadline would
be extended, further.
All of this action was antici-
pated as bondholders find them-
selves in a position of being forced
to protect the over $165 million in
payments and interest owed to
them for financing of the mill sale
to Florida Coast Paper Company,
L.L.C.
If the bondholders do not pro-
tect their investment and Florida
Coast Paper Company goes
through with Chapter 7 liquida-
tion bankruptcy, bondholders
would likely get, only pennies on
the, dollar' for. what they have
invested.
S Any plan that bondholders
may be able to deal out would
probably still not recoup all of the
investors' funds. If a buyer were
found, the bondholders would
certainly fare better than under
Chapter 7. No speculation on
what their plans are has been
made available to The Star as of
Wednesday's press deadline.
The encouraging factor for
laid off mill workers is that there
. does seem to be some activity'
toward receiving an answer on the
fate of the idle mill.


Florida Coast Paper Co.'s mill has set idle for more than a year.


Just in case you haven't
heard, St. Joe/Arvida is in the
process of looking at plans to
realign Highway 98 from the Dixie
Belle Curve to St. Joe Beach. just
over three miles.
Much attention has been
given to the plans, especially by
local residents, as they have
digested what the plans may
bring and how they might impact
them.
Part of that process is a pub-
lic workshop recently announced
by Gulf County commissioners
tonight, Thursday, September
30th, at 7:00 p.m. The meeting
will be held In the Port St. Joe
High School 'Commons Area,
located at 100 Shark Drive m Port
St. Joe, and all concerned citizens
are, urged to attend.

Sheriff Is Implementing School


Safety Hotline for Gulf Students


In a conference at the Gulf
County Sihool Board office last.
Thursday, Sheriff Frank McKelth-
en and Det. Beverly Norcum
unveiled plans to Implement the
School Safety Hotline Program in
Gulf County.

conjunction with the Department
of Education to develop the
,,School Safety Hotline Program.
The idea for this program
came about, following an incident
in. Pinellas County where a stu-
dent brought a gun' to school on
the bus and told fellow students

folks will give us the benefit of
allowing us to do the planning.
before drawing any conclusions .
. It could even be a better situa-,
lion than they now have."
As word has spread through-
out Gulf County during the past
several weeks, residents have
voiced many concerns. At'the top
of the list is access. Will they con-
tinue to have beachfront access?
Corr said, ."Absolutely," and'
'then went on to express that in
many ways that access may even.
be better "access."
Discussions at the workshop
will center around-, the St.
Joe/Arvida plans to conduct a
comprehensive plan examining
the realignment of Highway 98.
Where Highway 98 will be
aligned to and how public access
to, the beach area is'planned are
expected to be at the center of dis-
cussions. Just as "importantly,
residents will probably be hoping
to get some Insight as to just wbat'-

Wewa Comm. Agrees
to Purchase Generator
Wewahitchka city commis-
sioners awarded bids to Scott
Quality Electric, of Port St. Joe,
for the purchase qf an emergency
generator for back-up power sup-
ply to the city's water plant.
Scott Quality Electric was the
low bidder for the generator, beat-
ing out Jerry Pybus Electric, of
Panama City-the only other bid-
der.
The final price tag will come
in at around $30,000 once the

board has determined which
options they are going to best sat-
isfy the city's needs.
The generator will ensure that
the city's water system stays in
service during emergency loss of
power events.
In other matters of business,
-the board also voted to give cost of
living pay raises to city employ-
ees.

he was going to kill another stu-
dent. at lfinch that day. The stu-
dent did just that.
In investigating the shooting,
detectives were told by students
that the majority of them knew
the boy had a gun, .arid knew he
intended td use;it to kill another
student. They were also informed
that the students were afraid to
talk with' teachers, school officials
or the School Resource Officer
because they feared retaliation.
An anonymous hotline would
have taken away that fear and
may have saved a life.
The School Safety. Hotline is a
non-recorded. totally anonymous
line with no caller ID or any other
monitoring device. Callers may
give their name only if they wish,
bit will not be asked this infor-
mation and otherwise will remain

Students are urged to call if
they have any information regard-

community. 'This hotline is not


S." -McKeithen
in April of this year,, Pinellas
County and Duval County were
chosen as the first counties to use
the program, which at that time
was a pilot project. Minutes
before the scheduled press con-
ference to kick off the program.
the shooting at ;Columbine High
School. took place.
SWhat was planned to 'be a
pilot project was thrown into full
implementation with that tragedy,
and awareness for the need of
such a program was further
heightened with every report from
Colorado.
Collier County started the
program in May and was followed
by Holmes County. Gulf County
will be' only the fifth .county in
Florida to use the hotline.
Further information and the
toll-free number will be released
as soon as the telephone line is
operational. According to Sheriff
McKeithen and Ms. Norcum, that
should be within the next two
weeks.


Det. Beverly Norcum stresses the importance of the program.


Billy Traylor, left, and Nathan Peters, Jr. were named as chair-
man and vice chairman of the Gulf County Commission.


Traylor, PetersTake


Over County Reins


Gulf County commissioners
named Billy Traylor and Nathan
Peters, Jr. as the new chairman
and vice chairman during the
board's regular meeting Tuesday
evening.
Chairman Tommy Knox
passed the chair to the vice chair,
Peters, then made the motion for
Traylor to be 'considered as the
-new chairman and Peters to
retain his position as vice chair.
Knox also added to his
motion that the duration of ser-
vice be extended through the
board's second meeting in
November 2000 in order to get
past next year's elections before
selecting new board leaders.
Knox also noted that
Commissioners Warren Yeager,
Johnny Stanley and himself
would be up for re-election next
year and stressed the importance
of having a chair and vice chair
that are readily available to the
county.
The motion passed 4-1 with
Commissioner Stanley opposing
the move. Stanley was far from
pleased with the board's actions.
He had made it plain after last
year's selection that he felt slight-
ed because he and his district
(District 1) had been overlooked in
the process.


He told the board that District
1 had been passed over for the
vice chairman seat last year, and
this year it should have been con-
sidered for the chair instead,
though it was not being consid-
ered for either position.
Stanley's brother and Marilyn
Blackwell also spoke out on his
behalf.
During his recommendation,
Commission Chairman Knox
expressed his thanks to fellow
board members, administrative
staff, the public, and everyone
else who has assisted him during
his term as chairman.
Traylor will take over the,
chair duties during the board's
next meeting. He is currently
serving his third consecutive term
in office after being appointed to
the commission in January 1990.
Peters is the senior ranking
board member with 13 years on
the commission. He is currently
serving his fourth term on the
board.
Road Paving
Commissioners unanimously
agreed to award C. W. Roberts
Contracting, Inc. the paving con-
tract for several roads in Gulf
County.

Beach Sewer Service


A Necessary Utility

Area Should Take Off and Grow

With Proposed Relocating of Hwy. 98
SEWAGE COLLECTION SERVICE FOR the beaches areas of
Gulf County is one of the better ideas to come down the pike, as
far as we are concerned. The City of Port St. Joe has a treatment
plant, just sitting and waiting for the effluent. It's already built
and permitted. The idea is already more than half-way installed.
The hard part is done. Getting a permit to operate a treatment
plant, these days, is no small matter. The permit is the most valu-
able piece of the necessary equipment.
The beaches will be getting a bargain, no matter how much
they have to pay to tie into the existing treatment plant.
SUCH A DEAL COULD HELP FINANCIALLY strapped Florida
Coast Paper Company, too. The deal with the firm's predecessor
Spelled out the possibility of some other community joining in the
operation of the treatment facility. Any new community will
assume a share of the cost of the treatment plant, reducing the
amount current customers are called on to bear.
It's a win-win situation.
The treatment-plant would cost several million dollars more at
today's prices than it cost in 1970s dollars. A considerable savings
could be realized immediately, for any new customers which wish
to join the consortium which operates the plant, currently.
SUCH SERVICES WOULD LESSEN the restrictions of building
homes in the beach area, also. The furnishing of a central water
supply some few years ago has relaxed the health requirements of
the beach communities considerably already..
The availability of a central sewage collection system will fur-
ther relax the requirements.
Mexico Beach is already tied into a sewer partnership and is
currently installing the system. It will cost them money, but the
benefits will more than make up for the cost.
It's too-bad Gulf County couldn't get in on the act earlier and
join Mexico Beach in its project, with both communities coming to
the. Port St. Joe treatment plant.% It would have 'saved the Mexico
Beach customers some money.
With the public hearing this &week end about rerouting
Highway 98 through the communities, the sewer offering for both
communities will be the key to their becoming a force to be reck-
oned with in days to come.



Go With the Flow

GULF COUNTY IS FAST TAKING ON an additional source of
income with the advent' of sewer service for' the beach, the reloca-
tion of Highway 98, the marina and other proposed happenings
arou n d h ere. ... ........ .. ....... .... .......
That new source of dollars for our economy is the tourist busi-
_ness. Tourism is growing, in spite of ourselves. WVe:re 'smack in the
middle of it all and can't avoid it, even if w\e wanted to. It's coming
'like a loaded freight train and there's little we can do about it.
Like that commercial for a bank in this area says in its closing
statement. "You're going to be a senior citizen. You had jukt as well
enjoy it while you are young!" Well, we're ripe for tourist develop-
ment. We had just as well do our best to develop it in a way which
we can enjoy it, too.
WE HAVE'TOYED AROUND WITH attracting the tourist dol-
lar for several years, now. We have ignored the natural resources
we have in abundance, in favor of 'industry. We have actively
sought industry with our every fiber and largely drew a.blank.
.; Now, we are being run over by the tourism juggernaut,
because of our pure white beaches and we seem surprised by the
fact. It.all started with the popularity of the Cape San Bias prop-
.erty. We seemed surprised that people would pay such exorbitant
prices for the property. Our first reaction was one of defensiveness
'because we were losing the unfettered use of the land.
-, So, let's shift gears, and go with the flow, so to 'speak. It seems
to be the effortless thing to do.' At the same time, let's not aban-
don our attempt at. securing more industry and keeping that we
h,.1ve. The industry we currently have-'is important to our future
also.


Hunker Down With Kes by Kesley Colbert



. The Snakes Are Out Of The Grass!


-I read the- other day that
women 'in New York City are wear-
ing live snakes to complement
their ward robes when they "dress
up"; for an evening out. I studied
on that for a long while ....
Have we gone completely over
the edge? Does logic and reason
and good sense mean nothing any
more? Has sanity flown the coop?
Could this'report, in faci. be true'?
After' all, I did run across it in" a
newspaper. --
The article proclaimed that
women in London and Paris were
rounding. up vipers in all shapes,
colors, and sizes so as not to be
"out dressed" by those upstarts 'in
New York. Amazing! I understand
that copycats 'abound in the fash-
ion world-but this seems a little
extreme even for that industry! "
"Naturally," the story went on,
"everything has to be coordinated."
Hey, we wouldn't expect anything


less! IIf your evening gown is green,
there's a nice Eastern garter snake
just the required shade. If vou pre-
fer white. there's an albino boa
constrictor that would be simple
divine. The black rat snake is the
preferred model if you select a
darker hue. And for women who
"take" full sizes, there's always the
giant anaconda ::
What kind of stores handle
,:.-"fashion snakes" anyhow? Do you
'? pick up the hottest model at the
'local pet shop? Or has Mac"'s
Opened up a new snake-a-rama"
;.Qver by the perfume department?.
' Do you buy'emr by the foot? Do y.ou'
rent'em like a tux? Where would
you keup one after you got it
Jnhome?'If you throw away the red
dress. what do you do with the
.matching rat snake'?
Is it cheaper ifI" you pick-up a
used snake? "Well, yes ma'am,'this
... s a real bargain,, it's only been
worn once . and dropped
twice!" d d o ppe
I can't keep ,up .with, all the
things I'd like to ask one of those
New York haber d asher/snake
handlers. Exactly where and how
do you wear a live snake? D6yobu
wrap it around youf:rieck? Let it
run loose around your arm? Cram


all but the head in a front pocket?
Can you exhibit a small one in a
pushed-up hairdo?
I've got more questions on this
one than I['e got answers. 'Course.
I've never had a clue on New York
fashion. And this is a perfect
example why! When you start mix-
ing black lace silk and slivering
adders, well. you've lost me '
I only know' onething for''cer-r
tain about snakes. I ain't about' to
wear onel Not alive or. dead! Call
me fashion unconscious if you
want to. I don't care how they do it
, in New York City!. Listen, if you see
a: live. snake on ole .Kes.:r-hes
gonna have to be awful fastli ..,
I near ?bout stepped on a 'big
one: last week. -I jumped tenr feet
high and kicked in the afterburn-
ers .. A friend, asked me what
kind it was. I didn't hesitate
because I'd eyed it pretty good as I
flew over, "It was a giant. kiig
cobra-cottonmouth-bushmaster-
copperhead-diamond back rattler-
water moccasin as -best I ;could
tell." '. ,." .' ", .
Snakes look a lot alike to me.
And they are, all super poisonous!
I just dcarn't visualize ,taking
your best girl out and' she's got a


yellowed spotted South Indian
python w.T"apped around her arm.
('Course. I know what you're
thinking. With some of the dates
I've had over the years it would be
hard to tell which was the crawl-
ing. creeping creature .) But.
can you imagine her turning to-
you "and saying. "Do you mind
holding my wrap while I powder
my nose?"
Or you turning to her halfway
through the dinner and saying .
"O.K., which one o' you guys ate
my last buffalo wing?"
SOr how about the embarrass-
ment when the 'python slips off
your date's, arm and attacks dithe
cobra at, the next table.
.Or. your sweetheart splashes
face first int6 the spaghetti, dying
'from the friendly nip on the neck
the Southern copperhead gave her
as they exited the cab. '
Or the extra expense because
you've:got to order for three. ;,
, Aren't there some kind of laws
against i earing live' things, in this
country? The Crocodile Man fromin
the Animal Channel is the only
human on earth that ought to..be
allowed to wrap a snake around
(See KESLEY ONPAGE 3)


,Magaznes and 1Nw spapers Fill The


ONE GOOD THING about
':Tretirement is that I can get to all,
those things I intended to read"
some day. I dearly love to read. I
'have read, regularly, two news-
papers, Readers' Digest,
'Newsweek, National Geographic,
assorted .novels and a gaggle of.
.:6ther publications and articles.-."
I have beer reading Readers'
Digest and subscribing to it for
years. I- Was subscribing to
SReaders Digest' since the days
'. before they would accept adver-
" tising in their periodical.
' That was a long time ago;
' even during the days when Life
S-magazine was publishing every
week. Life would print a maga-
zine filled with pictures and very
Little reading every week and
-, Readers' Digest would print'
their 'now-famous format with
very few pictures every month.
With the two, one could get the
-'written story of the most impor-
tant happenings and the pic-
tures, too.


EVERY SO OFTEN, when we
print an issue of The Star which
contains .,an unusually' large
number of pictures, we refer to it,
here in the office, as a Life maga-
zine issue. ... .. .. : ..- ;- '
You remember Life, don't
you? It made. several news pho-
tographers famous. It printed the
first, ever, public viewing of the
famous Mount Suribachi flag
raising by a quartet of U. S.
Marines who had just captured
the hill during WWII. That one
photo was almost as important a
battle cry as "Remember Pearl
Harbor" was during the war.
Life did a yeoman's job of


reporting the war and the peace
which followed. They printed the
famous ph6to 'of a sailor kissing a
girl in Times Square in end-bf-
the-war celebration, which even
Norman, Rockwell copied in' a
painting for the cover of The
Saturday Evening Post, another
important magazine of days gone
by which is now defunct.
;, Only ,the -Readers' Digest
remains true to its journalistic
excellence.
I'm afraid their "Sweep-
stakes", operated by its distribu-
tor, will do it in: before too many
more years, though.
Too bad, it is still an excel-


lent nimonthly rna azine. offer ing a
condensed version of every
important, piece ':of literatiure
printed in differefit publications
during the preceding month.
Thejokes, used' to fill out the
pages, aren't bad, either.

THE OTHER DAY Iwas read-
ing an article, in 'Newsweek mag-
azine about George. Bush. and
:how-he felt about his. two sons,
now governors of two of the most
important states in the union.
-George is, of course, justifi-
ably proud' as punch'of his two
- sons but the article went: on to
.point' out his difficulty in
expressing verbally, his pride.
I learned something new.in
the' article. The Bushes also had
a daughter who-died at the age of
three and :a half. ,
Bush is also sentimental and
expresses his 'sentiment ITn his
writings. He has written a book,
which contains copies of letters
he has' written to his children


Gap of

and others. -the article, which
accompanied 'the 'review ,-rhich
told about the book,' old about
tBush's loqu'aci'ousness" in- his

his verbal communication."
.Bush writes aboiit the vacan-
cy, in. 'his family, -'left .by the
smriall, soft head' df 'blond hair.
Only' two bristly crew-ctit'heads
remain." ..

I EVEN READ sqme of-the

now.. One I'm not particularly
.fond of, most of the time, written
by a-lady known as Molly Wins.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1999


County From Page 1


Roberts was the low bidder by
Just over $51,000 at $375,212.49.
The bids included prices to
pave the Doc Whitfield Road from
Highway 71 to the Gulf Forestry
Camp (4.3 miles). During discus-
sion, the board talked about get-
ting additional prices to widen the
rdad, and also to look at just
resurfacing the road to the fresh-
water canal (1.5 miles) rather
than the extended project.
Other roads on the list
included Lucia Drive, the Beacon
Hill Park entrance, and the
entrances to Gulf Aire
Subdivision, all in the St. Joe.
Beach/Beacon Hill area.
Monica, Betty, and Barbara
Drives at Ward Ridge aie also on
the list.

And let me tell you, these
.'anhattan trend setters are not as
original as they think on this
thing. Bobby Brewer threw a grass
snake on LaRenda Bradfield back
when we were in the third grade.
She didn't wear it long. If she'd
only known she was breaking
-ground for fashion conscious New
*York women at the turn of the cen-
tury-she might'a held back on
some of that hollering and scream-
ingl .
What will they think of next?I1
mean, how do you "out do" live
shakes!
K',.'. My Aunt Ruby Nell carried
-that porcupine around for years.
We never dreamed she was making.
a fashion statement .. we just
thought she was "touched."
You can draw your own con-
'clusions about people who wear
live snakes ....

The. board will probably
decide what to pave on the Doc
Whitfield Road during its next
meeting.
Other bids on the project
included Granger Asphalt Paving,
Inc. $426,540. Florida Asphalt
$664,285.25, and Triangle

Domestic Violence Ordinance
County commissioners unan-
imously supported a request from
Domestic Violence Task Force
Chairman James Hersey to con-
sider an ordinance that would
fine those committing domestic
violence acts. The fines would
help fund assistance to victims.
Hersey's request would gener-
ate revenues that would ultimate-
ly help those who were victims of
domestic violence through funds
generated by those who are
responsible for creating the prob-
lems.
Veterans Nursing Home
Update
During the board's last meet-
ing, commissioners granted Gulf
County Veterans Service Officer
Bo Williams' request to make
application for a new Florida
Department of Veterans Affairs
state nursing home to locate. in
Gulf County. ..
Williams told commissioners
that Chris Hine. vice president-of
St. Joe Company, has approved a
possible site location of up to 15
acres along Garrison Avenue,
near the Gulf/Franklin Center.
He will be travelling to a
Veterans Administration Confer-
ence and beginning the process of
selling the Gulf County site within
the next few days. Williams said
it's very important that letters of
support be sent to state senators
and representatives from people
within the community.
"There's going to be some stiff
competition from other areas in
Northwest Florida," Williams said
after the meeting. "We have to get
the word out that we want this
facility." he concluded.
The nursing home could

Concerned About

St. Joe/Arvida Plans
.Dear Mr. Ramsey,
As a former resident of Gulf
!County, I am concerned about the
S plans that the St. Joe/Arvida
'Company has for development of,-
St. Joe Beach. Granted it is their
land and they can utilize it how-
ever they choose.
My fear is that the citizens of
PSJ will not question this propos-
thoroughly enough to under-

stand the ramifications it will
bave on their and their children's
,future enjoyment of one of the last
undeveloped and non commer-
clalized beaches left In our state.
Mr. Chris Corr (VP of Strategy
and New Ventui'es: for Arvida, a
St. Joe Company) was quoted as
saying, "There absolutely will con-
tinue to be access to the St.: Joe,
Beach area and in, many ways
may be even better access.". I
think you should .ask yourselves;
,better for who?
St. Joe/Arvida is in the busi-
ness of real estate development
and making money, not accom-
podating the wishes and former
privileges of a small community. I
do not know the price range of the
r( hoiomes they; are proposing to
develop in this area, but you can
bePcertain that the (out of town
_and out of state) folks who buy'
them are not going to want the ,
?"locals" on "their beach."' Just
Slook aLPanama City Beach.
You do not think the paper
miill is going to sit there as ugly as
it isdo you? What about Arizona
Chemical, the smell that it puts
but, they willFprobably buy it out
somewhere down the road and get
rid of that plant. Those two prop-
erties are much too unsightly for
'the upscale community they have
planned.
I ,I hope- everyone who has ever
'enjoyed or wants future genera-
tions to enjoy that beach attend
the public hearing set for
Thursday, 9/30, and ask as many
questions as you can.'
I hope I will be able to attend
this meeting, but if not I hope the
people of St. Joe will not let that
beach be snatched out from
under them.
It will be interesting to see
what kind of plans St. Joe/Arvida
will reveal to the community
Thursday night.
Sincerely,
Cherry Heape (Stebel)

Re: Jarrod Wester
Date: September 27
Dear Coach Gannon,
On Friday night. I had the
opportunity to see first hand the
quality of care that is available for
the Port St. Joe High School ath-
letes.
During the game with
Carrabelle, one of the cheerlead-
ers hurt her feet during a stunt. I
called Jarrod Wester from the
sidelines to look at them, and he
did. Jarrod was very professional
in his conduct, and he was quite,
knowledgeable in what needed to
be done to help her.
He spent a lot of time wrap-
ping her feet so that they would


New Amendment
Dear Editor:
Monday. September 13. 1999
the Honorable Circuit .Couirt
iJudge Sandy Sauls stood straight
and tall for women, senior citi-
:zens, and citizens with physical
limitations by denying the state a
motion to dismiss. a declarative
judgement-. lawsuit requesting
equal access and opportunity to
Florida's marine resources.
November 8, 1994 seventy-
two percent of the voters estab-
lished Article 10, Section 16 limit-
ing marine net fishing. The state
took the position of implementing
a "Net Ban", but we took the posi-
tion of implementing a "Net Limi-
tation", by lawsuits.
The first declarative judge-
ment on shrimp nets ended Janu-
ary 1996 with the Florida
Supreme Court establishing "The
people voted to limit rather than,
prohibit net fishing in Florida."
The Florida Supreme Court
allowed a 500 sq. ft. commercially
'viable net.
In 1996,. citizens began to
attempt to get' a commercially
viable 500 sq. ft. rectangular net
for citizens with limitations not
able to throw a cast net. The
state/MFC continue to implement
a net ban by blocking the path of
fishermen to the Florida Supreme
Court.
The state was able to get rul-
ings from the Department of
Administrative Hearings, a "Net
Ban Court," and the 1st District
Court of Appeals, a "Net Ban
Court," placing obstacles or
orders that could have prevented'
citizens from returning to the
Florida Supreme Court, a "Net
Limitation Court."
The Honorable Judge Sauls


remain stationary so no more
damage could be done. He sug-
gested that we get her to the hos-
pital for x-rays as soon as possi-
ble.
I was on the sidelines as a
mother-figure., but it made me
very proud to be a teacher at
PSJHS and +to see the quality and
pride of workmanship that your
,Athletic Trainer program pro-
duces.
I am glad that these students
have the opportunity to explore
such a worthwhile program and
they have been well-trained in
their positions.
As a teacher and a mother. I

vs. Equal Access
with his ruling removed the obsta-
cles allowing an opportunity to
have an evidentiary trial in his
court, and then on to the Florida
SSupreme Court.
We allege that hate, prejudice.
and discrimination by a single
interest group in our government
was taking our rights under the
net limitation,
Standing in front of the court-
room. I turned to witness one of
our Wakulla Fishermen. Associa-
tion members attempting to affect
the judge with prayer. He prayed
before, during, and until the
Judge ruled, stopping only as he
heard his prayers being answered.
I also witnessed water form-
ing in his eyes as the judge ruled,
and shortly after that he came for-
ward and I received his hug.
Preacher Mathews is an
African-American, a minister, and
a life-long fisherman of approxi-
mately 80 years. He only asks-let
him go to his final resting place in
the same manner he has lived.
Seventy-two percent of the voters
supported just that by limiting,
rather than prohibiting, net fish-
ing.
People ask, "Why do you con-
tinue this fight, after five years
and no pay?" My answer is,
Brother Mathews and other senior
fishermen pay me daily; some
things are greater than money.
Prayer works; thank God for'
people like the Honorable Judge'
Sauls. Over the past five years
when the door is closed, it seems
to get opened. Monday September
13th, was one of those days, and
the door was opened.

To Vickie
A loving Mother a devoted wife,
Vickie Lamberson has left this life.
It hurts right now, but it sure does please us,
to know she's gone to be with Jesus.
She lived for God and trusted His Word,
a better testimony, I've never heard.
While here on earth her light did shine,
she showed the love of Jesus, to all mankind.
Why so young, did God take her away?
This has been asked many times, even before
today, but He is the potter, we are the clay.
Heaven is sure brighter with Vickie there today.

Special Report From This Home -

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
me, soon. (Read more of my story on the real estate page).

remained comatose for an &addi-
tional one to two weeks.
Once word escaped df the
accident, people came by the tens
arid twenties to see her. Susie still
isemoved when she revisits those
sleepless days and nights follow-
. ing, the accident.
7'- There must have been 15 to
75, kids kids on their knees pray-
ing and crying. David let them in.
He:took them into her room two at
a time. We even had to help one of
them out. They were very affected
by what they saw," Susie says.
STe- and ,David were constantly
.i, by people, offering their help,
prayers, and encouragement.
Srye were friends and relatives,.
6tA; equally as many were cqm-.
1 kte strangers.
Candlelight vigils and special
church services were being held


Tlis single car crash nearly one
i year ago changed Sam's life.
inI Port St. Joe as well as all over
the: state. Prayer chains extended
far beyond even the borders of the
state. -

3 Staying by Samantha's side
was her parents' top priority; both
of them were with her daily at the
hospital.
During this harrowing time,
Susie and David kept a firm belief
that Sam would survive.. Only
once. says Susie, did she become
truly, afraid.
Sam's doctor had., informed
the family thaU Lf s"he ,coul1.noJ
breathe on her' ovn after "the
appropriate time period spent
-vith an artificial respirator, then.
she would have a tube inserted
into her trachea. from which, her
breathing passageways would
never quite be the same. The time
approached, and when it did, the
doctor reported to her family that
Sam had "overridden the
machinee. She had breathed on
her own, automatically shutting
0fP the respirator.
i The most obvious of Sam's
Tniracles was that. at no time after
the accident, was any procedure,
M rgicdal or invasive, necessary.
lier incredible recovery was all
ier own. .
| When Sam came out of the
:oma. she was kept In the reha-
>ilitation hospital, Health South,
n Panama City, for three months.
Her life now was'. a very still .one...
Her motion capability was limited,
tnd she, still could not speak.
k-Iowevecri it was obvious in her

therapy six times a week, for. the
next six months. t
Working with multiple thera-
pists and instructors throughout
the entire day, almost every day
was exhausting for Samantha.
Throughout the course of the six
months, however, she successful-
ly retrained her body to w4alk
again-shakily, at first, but
improving daily, even to the pre-
sent.
Other after-effects of the head
trauma Sam Incurred have. proven
to be as difficult, If not more so,
than her physical limitations. She
has lost none of her long term
memory, but her short term mem-
ory has been severely affected.
Sam has trouble remembering
recent events, like a friend's visit
the day before, or what happened
last week.
To help Sam keep up with
these things until -her memory
" abilities return fully is her "Mem-
ory book": a type of diary in which
she writes what her activities were
each day, by clutching a special
pen. With such aids, Sam is slow-
ly regaining a steady hand and
legible words.
Now, her sessions have been
reduced to three times, weekly,
and Sam is striving even harder at
improving while at home,
"They can't challenge her any-
more, there. She constantly cor-
rects them with their, english
usage. She wears one out of two
therapists out, every day," Susie
says.
Along with her walking, writ-,
ing;, and memory, her speech is
very clear and articulate, very
much like it used to be. Although
Sam talks with a slower speed,
she communicates each thought
flawlessly.' .

At the time of the accident,
Sam was in the middle of her
senior year in high school. As
soon as she became physically
and emotionally able, she 'started
home-schooling In the remainder
of her required courses. This
effort enabled Sam to graduate
with her class this past May. She
even participated in the ceremo-
ny, walking down the aisle to


receive her diploma.
"I would like to give, a very
special thank you to Rodney Her-'
ring for home-schooling me. He
helped me finish up my classes so
I could graduate," says Saman-
tha. .
Rodney Herring was another
of the caring souls that gave all
they could to make sure that Sam
never missed any opportunities'.
Now, she has decided to con-
tinue with her plans.
"I am going to take a year to
go to therapy, then take an ITV
course for my core courses, then I
will start: college."
For years, Sam has felt her
calling to be in the teaching pro-

as anger and depression.
"She skipped through all the

"I would 'very much like' to

capabilities. At the. time of her

gone canoeing .in Econfina

of her friends.

Any human being who man-

survived is surely to be left with
some scars-not simply physical
in nature bt those th canhurt
for much longer. ,
The emotional scars of such a
trauma can be serious. Sam has
managed to successfully weather
the strongest of adversities, but
notwithout being changed.
Susie, whom she lives with,
recognizes these changes every
day.
"She cherishes', everything

pletely changed...l am so thankful
that there is a different one wak-

would never leave: home without
being pristinely well-groomed and
nicely dressed, wore a. t-shirt with

The subject of religion was
never much of a concern with
Samantha, but a few weeks ago
her mother reports that to 'her
pleasant surprise, Sam asked if

Similarly, everyone involved
in Sam's life experienced a change
of heart through the past year's
events. Susie agrees, and firmly
states, "God orchestrated what
happened at the time of the acci-
dent to where there could be no
other explanation."

Watering House Plants


Regardless of where you live,
you can enjoy house plants, pro-
viding you care for them properly.
Light, humidity, temperature, and
watering may have an adverse
affect on house plant survival if
not properly done.
Careless watering kills house
plants faster than just about
anything else. I want to discuss
some of the dangers of over water-
ing. I'll, also offer some tips on
how to tell when your plant needs
water, and explain how much you
should give them.
My information on watering


house plants was supplied by
Extension Urban Horticulturist
Dr. Robert Slack.
Most plants grow very well in
a soil that's kept moist, but not
continually saturated with water
Plants need air, as well as water.
Too much water can suffocate
plant roots, and cause them to
rot. Over watering also- causes
severe leaf drop.
Of course, how much you
water, and how often, will vary
considerably, depending on the
type of plant you're growing, its
size, and stage of growth, the pot-

ting soil, and the size and kind of,
container.
One of the best guides to.
proper watering is the feel of the
soil. As I have. said, it's easy to
keep the soil moist, but not wet, .
So, to determine if a plant needs
water, just poke your finger into,
the soil to a depth of about arn
inch. If it feels moist, water. isn't
needed. If the soil feels dry and
crumbly, the plant probably could
use some additional moisture. ,,
Most plants should receive:
applications of lukewarm water
Except during very cold weather,
tap water is fine. Water your
plants thoroughly, applying
enough to moisten the soil all the ,
way to the bottom of the pot.
If a plant is growing In a con-
tainer which has drainage hole%_
place the pot in a saucer or tray
and : apply water- until you see
excess draining out of the bottom
After you are sure that all the
excess has drained out, discard
the water that has collected in the
saucer. Never leave-the pot stand
ing in this excess.
When using a container that
lacks drainage holes, you should
put a, layer of coarse gravel in the,
bottom before adding potting soil.,
This will provide space for excess,
water to collect and help prevent,
the root rot problem we .men-
tioned earlier.


A good way to check the mois-.
ture content of such a container
is to lay it.on its side in a sink-,,
plant and all. Leave it inthis posi-t.
tion long enough for all excess
water to drain out. And then,
return it to its upright position. ,
In summary, maintaining
P proper soil moisture for, house,
plants isn't difficult. But, it does
require some common sense and -
restraint. We honestly can't
overemphasize that over watering
is the most common cause of fail-'
ure with house plants.


Of course, too little moisture
also can be harmful. So, you
should check the condition of the,
soil around your plants frequent-'
ly.,
Obviously, we can't give you a
specific watering schedule,
because so many factors influ-
ence how often and how much
water y6ur' plants will need.' It's.
up to you to keep a close check'on
the condition of the soil around
each of your plants..
Of course, how much you
water, and how often, will vary
considerably depending on the
type of plant you're growing, its
size and stage of growth, the pot-
ting soil, and the size and kind of
container.

MEDITATIONS OF A
(1ountry |reat er ,
By LOWELL F. ADAMS





Matthew 5:37
ITHE FIFTHCHAPTER of Matthew contains
one of Jesus' greatest sermons. Among the
many encouragements for right living He gives
instructions for proper conversation. In verse 37, Jesus
tells us to,
"Let your conversation be Yes or No, for anything
nore than this comes of evil."
In other words, Jesus is telling us to always let our
words convey nothing but truth.
Many years ago, I made a serious error in my own
conversation, when I made a joking statement in front of
mry young daughter.
It happened following a preaching service. As is the
,,usual practice in many rural churches, after the service,
people were "visiting" and talking in the shady yard, and
a visiting gentleman commented on the beauty of my
little' Elizabeth, who was very young, and standing
nearby. He closed by jokingly asking me how much I
',would take for her. I joined in the spirit of his jest, and
;assured him I would just give her to him.
Of course, Elizabeth heard our remarks, and being
:an innocent child, she accepted everything we adults
said as absolute truth. Many years later, when she was
much older, she confided in me, that my offer to give her
.away had frightened her, because she did not know we
were joking. She lived in fear for years, afraid I might
actually give her to someone else.
Jesus instructions to keep our conversations simple
and truthful, is wise, indeed. With a little child, and even
spme adults, whatever someone, may say is truth to
them.. They may not 'be able to tell the difference
between a joke and the truth.
The faith of a child is marvelous. When they are
taught about God, they never question its truth. In Luke
18:16, Jesus told His disciples, to let children come to
Him, for of such is the Kingdom of God. In verse 17, He
said, "Except one receives the truth of God's Kingdom,
with the faith as a little child, they shall in no wise enter
therein."

"A Vow to Cherish"
Ken Howard and Barbara
Babcock lead a marvelous cast as
John and Ellen Brighton-a lov-
ing Christian couple devoted to
each other and their two children.
Everything in their lives moves
along as it should until, 'without
warning, Ellen is diagnosed with
a devastating illness.
Over the following months,
the support and commitment of
the entire fAmily' are severely
challenged as Ellen gradually
slips away into the 'grips of her
merciless infirmity.
For John, it ultimately leads
him to face the reality of the mar-
riage vows he made to her before
God so many years before-to be
at your side in sorrow and in joy,
in sickness and in health, to, love
and cherish, you always, as' long
as we both shall live. "
The newest film release from
World Wide Pictures (the motion
picture ministry of the Billy
Graham. Evangelistic Associa-
tion), A Vow to Cherish is tremen-
dously personal and deeply emo-
tional. It will give you a renewed
look at the power of love, especial-
ly the power of God's love, and the

Temptations eat away at the
foundations of many homes.
Paul wrote to the Ephesians about relationships
within the Christian home. He told married people to be
subject to one another out of reverence for Christ. When
the home functions as a part of the family of God there
is love and respect.
There should not be those things which destroy a
marriage in the Christian home. The home should have
prayer and devotion to God. With this, the husband and
wife create a stable home held together by love.

the Eastpoint Eagles in
Apalachicola with a score of 18-0.
The defense led the charge by
recovering a fumble, intercepting
a pass and scoring a safety
against the Eagles, while holding
them to negative yardage for the
game.
The defensive team included
ends Chaz Byrd and Rodney
Besore; tackles Zeke Stevens,
Byron Peters, Zack Scoggins, and
Victor Quintinilla; nose guards
Scott Quintana and Andrew
Canington; and linebackers
Warren Floyd, Michael Quinn,
Patrick Bailey, Matthew Wright
and Javon Daniels.
Also defending are corner-
backs 'Zack Tarantino, Sam Cox,
Mason Adkison, Javion Sims, and
Jamond Frazier; and safeties
Matthew Gannon, Rashawne
Thomas and Mason Adkison.
Defensive coaches are Mike Byrd,
Alan Cox, and Pat Floyd.
The offense of the Jaguars
continues to get stronger each
week under the coaching of Ken
Chambers, John Wright, and
David Davis.
Better blocking and bursts of
speed by the running backs pro-
duced several long runs-two for
touchdowns. Following the touch-
downs, the offense scored on both
extra point plays by running, net-
ting two points each time.
The record by the Jaguars is
now 3-1 and they play in
Carrabelle next Tuesday night at
6:30 p.m. against the Panthers.
Dolphins Splashed To A 16-8
Final Over Apalach Bulldogs
The PSJ Dolphins were at
home on a rain-drenched field
Tuesday night and splashed to a
16-8 final score over the
Apalachicola Bulldogs for the
Dolphins' first win of the season.
A large crowd waded through
the region's only deep-water park-
ing lot and concession area to
support the team and its cheer-
leaders. The fans witnessed domi-
nant blocking by the offensive line
and impressive running from a
variety of formations in a nearly
mistake-free game by the team.
Total control and concentra-
tion by the Dolphin defense kept
the Bulldogs backed up, leaving
the Dolphin offense with com-
manding field position all night.
With such an advantage, the
offense held focus and executed
nearly flawlessly, running the ball\
almost exclusively between the
tackles, jamming it in for a touch-
down in each half.
A late touchdown by the
Bulldogs gave that team hope,


until the Dolphins next gained the
ball, moved down the field in a
series of first downs, with the
team's quarterback kneeling
down. on the last play as time ran
out.

Outdoors in the

Panhandle ,
by Gene Childs
Florida Outdoor Writers' Association


The early teal and woodduck
season ended not with a bang but
a whimper. Reports from Wimico
and from the Howard Creek area
were pretty much the same: no
ducks yet.
A friend and I hunted Wimico
on' Sunday. A' ride down Depot
Creek gave us access to the lake.
An early woodie surprised us
when he barreled into and out of
the' decoys just at daybreak.
Several missed shots sped him 'on
his way.
Several hours passed with no,
ducks but ,a young eagle enter-
tained for a while as he too hunt-
ed this beautiful stretch of water.
We only saw five or six ducks all,
day, and the three blue wing teal.
we did get were flushed from an
isolated pocket in the middle of the
day.
The teal and most all other
ducks have not moved into our
area yet. Cold weather and time
will decide how duck season '99
will play out. I hope other
Panhandle areas had more suc-
cess than we did.
Nice inshore weather over the
last few days had anglers on the
water dodging the showers looking
for fish. Shellcrackers are the
sought after fish and some beds
can still be found. Wigglers on the
bottom are the best bait.
A few crappie are beginning to
feed up on minnows-again in the
deeper holes. Bass fishing
improves as temperatures contin-
ue to cool, and topwaters early


and late are picking up a few.
Water levels in the area con-
tinue to be lower than normal.
Seminole is two feet below normal;
Miccosukee is drying up; and
Walter F. George is six feet short
for the year. More fish than .water
is what they are saying along the
Dead Lakes. Find the holes and
deep bends and find fish.
Saltwater fishing is, really
beginning to pick up since the red
tide has all but disappeared.
Spanish mackerel were in good
size schools along the beaches and
off the St. Joe peninsula.
Others caught Spanish over
most inshore reefs. The VA, the
JC, the Gatewood reefs all had fish
over the weekend. Some fair kings
were caught as were some very
large. Spanish. Several boats
caught and released small cobia,
but reported spotting some keep-
ers. Maybe our fall run of fish has
begun.
Fall tournaments are winding
down in our area and good catch-
es from entrants has been the rule
for these tourneys. The PCMI tour-
ney was this past weekend and the
Treasure, Island Marina Tourna-
ment was the weekend before.
Tim Sims on the Shane Gri-La'
out of Mexico Beach took top hon-
ors there and a check for S8.500.
Tourneys later in the fall and win-
ter featuring flounder, trout, red-
fish, and maybe sheepshead
would be fun for this area.
Hunters are gearing up for "99.

When the mourning and
white-winged dove season opens
Saturday, Oct. 2, there will be
three "special-opportunity" hunt-
ing fields in Gulf County with all
the seeds doves can eat. Now, if
only the doves will show up.
The fields were planted back
in late spring by wildlife personnel
of the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
and have a combination of crops,
including brown-top millet, pearl
millet, Japanese millet, Egyptian
wheat, benne, corn and black-oil.
sunflowers. Some of the fields
have different crop combinations.
Two of the fields are located
south of Wewahitchka on the Ed
Ball Wildlife Management Area
(39 acres) and the Apalachicola
River Wildlife and Environmental
Area (120 acres), The third field is
the Wetappb Creek field (180
acres) and is located just south of
State Road 22 six miles west of
Wewahitchka.
The FWC has 10 special
opportunity dove hunt fields
located around the state and in
addition to a hunting license it
will cost all hunters $35.50 for
each one-day hunt.
The only exemptions to the fee
are those individuals who pur-
chased either Lifetime or Five-
Year licenses prior to July 1,
1998.
"We've done our best to pro-
vide high-quality fields ta price
that's certainly in .line or below
what hunters are paying to hunt
in other fields," said Shane Fuller,
the FWC's small game wildlife
biologist.
"Sometimes drought or too
much rain will ruin things but
we've had rain at the right times
and there's plenty of seed on the
ground and on the stalk."
Fuller said the Wetappo Creek
field was leased for the year from
St. Joe Timberland Company for
the purpose of offering special
opportunity dove hunts periodi-
cally throughout the three-phase
season. The eight open dates are
Oct. 2, 9, 23, Nov. 13, 27, Dec. 11,
25 and Jan. 8.
Permits to hunt the Wetappo

Few changes have been imple-
mented for this year, and the ones
that have are generally to add
hunting areas or new special
opportunity hunts. Dove areas are
new as are more hunts for the dis-
abled and mobility impaired-a
welcome addition in NW Florida.
Spend some time-in the great
outdoors. Cooler weather and.
fewer bugs make camping a great
fall family activity.


Creek field can be purchased at
the Wal-Mart Super Center on
North Tyndall Parkway in Panama
City.
Both the Ed Ball and
Apalachicola River WMA fields will
be open Oct. 2, 9, 16 and 23 dur-
ing the first phase of dove season.
However, on Oct. 2 the Ed Ball
field is reserved for mobility-
impaired hunters who have
obtained a mobility-impaired cer-
tificate from the FWC.
Permits for the Ed Ball and
Apalachicola River WEA fields can
be. purchased at the Howard
Creek Country Mart on Doc


Whitfield Road at Howard Creek.,
Fuller said the FWC main-
tains a "Dove Hunters Hotline"
and by dialing 1-850-875-FGFC
(3432) hunters can obtain brief
information on dove densities,
previous week's harvest and the
number of permits available .for
each special opportunity and
WMA dove field.
Florida's three phase dove
season is Oct. 2 25, Nov. 13 -28
and Dec. 11 Jan. 9. The first
phase is noon to sunset shooting
and during the second and third
phases from 1/2-hour before sun-
rise to sunset.

"Our kids played extremely
hard," said head coach Grant
Grantham. "We played real well
the first half, then made some
mistakes in the second half and
didn't keep our composure."
Wewahitchka shut down the
Tigers' opening drive, when
Justin Miller made a big play on
fourth down and a half a yard to
go to stop Blountstown. Myron
Vann put the Gators in scoring
position with an 18 yard run.

SCHOOL AGE HEALTH
PROBLEMS
Why does a seemingly normal child have diffi-
culty in learning? The first thing to test is the child's
hearing and vision. Poor hearing can go undetected
at home because many hard of hearing children can
hear deep sounds, but not those of higher pitch. They
can hear "most" of what is said. Vision, if deficient,
can usually be corrected easily by the use of glasses.
Mental retardation and certain nervous system
problems also can be determined and special educa-
tion and medication arranged. Poor nutrition, ane-
mia, lack of sleep, and chronic infections can also
interfere with a child's ability to learn.

Are you a victim of a plaque
attack? The villain is a sticky, col-
orless film of bacteria that forms
on your teeth. If not removed regu-
larly through the modern dental
method of curretage or scaling, it
can cause cavities and/or gum
(periodontal or gingivitis) disease.
Experts estimate that three out of
every four adults are troubled with
plaque accumulation at some time
in life.


Surretage

Dental curretage remove'
accumulated tartar and bacteria
from under the gum line as well as
from the surface of the tooth's root.,
It is this procedure that helps
uproot and cleanse away tartar.
(hardened mineral deposits) or
calculus (concrete-like mineral)',
from both teeth and gums.
If bacterial pockets are deep'
and bone loss severe, your dentist-,
makes direct access to the infect-'

gum surfaces clean. Loose teeth'
may be stabilized with 'mode'rri
treatment if caught in time. Win the-

Florida KidCare... Take Advantage Of It!


Health insurance plays a crit-
ical role in ensuring that all chil-
dren obtain timely medical care
that is appropriate to their devel-
opmental needs.
In an era of high health care
costs, health insurance is essen-
tial for ensuring that children's
health services are both accessi-
ble and affordable. Many of
Florida's children are uninsured
for various reasons, but the most
common reason is because their
families cannot afford 'health cov-
erage for them.
Florida has the fourth highest
number of uninsured children in
the nation. In fact, over 823,000


(27%) of Floiida's three million
children are -uninsured, and an
estimated 294,000 of these chil-
dren are presently eligible for
Medicaid, yet have not enrolled.
Children without regular
medical care are eight times more
likely to go to the emergency room
than their insured counterparts.
Compared to children with
health insurance, uninsured chil-
dren are more likely to be sick as
newborns, more likely to miss
school, less likely to be immu-
nized as preschoolers, and less
likely to receive medical treatment
for injuries, or for illnesses such
as acute or recurrent ear infec-


tons, asthma, and tooth decay.
Untreated illnesses and injuries
can have lifelong consequences.
In response to the federal
State Child Health Insurance ini-
tiative passed as part of the
Balanced Budget Act of 1997
(Title ,XXI), the 1998 Florida
Legislature passed the Florida
KidCare Act creating a children's
health insurance program for
,children through age 18 living at
or below 200% of the federal
poverty level ($2,742. per month
for a family of four).
'The Florida KidCare program,
provides a defined set of health
benefits to previously uninsured.
low-income children through the
establishment of.: a variety of
affordablea. health '.'insurance,
options..
Finding out if you are eligible
and signing up is simple. Parents
need to complete an easy to.
understand one-page application.
Florida KJdCare applicauons are
available at the Gulf County


Health Department (Port St. Joe
and Wewahitchka clinics),
Franklin County Health Depart-
ment, local medical providers,
school health clinics, and Head
Start.
Gulf County was originally
given 500 slots in order to provide
medical coverage to children of
families who were eligible. To date
only 200 of those slots have been
filled. Unfortunately, if the
remaining 300 slots are not used
there is a significant possibility
That these slots will be turned
over to other counties.
Gulf and Franklin counties
are working together to help pro-
mote this worthwhile program to
the residents of both counties.
If you would like more infor-
:mation on Florida KidCare, ,call

The Star Feature,,

hl' ? "School of the Week"
Faith Christian School was found-
Sed in 1974 as a ministry ofn the Faith
Bible Church. It began with 12 stu-
dents in a kindergarten class, and has
expanded to include children from
the age two nursery class through
grade eight.
In the course of the past 25 years,
FCS has held classes in the
Presbyterian, Church, Long Avenue
Baptist Church, the Kindergarten
-, Annex on Eighth Street, office build-
-- p ings, and private homes. The whole
student body is presently housed in
.the facilities on Twentieth Street.
-. Currentlyfthere are 91 students
"I with a staff of 17; 11 regular teach-
ers, two aides, and four in the office
and administration. The average stu-
S dent-teacher ratio is eight to one.
Faith Christian School has a
Christian philosophy of education, high ideals of learning, a spirit of patriotism, firm but loving discipline, character training, and en-.
uine concern for boys and girls who will become the future leaders of our c-ommunity and country.
Faith Christian is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International, and participates in its regional activities such
as spelling bees, poetry and writing contests, teacher's conferences, etc. The school seeks to be an integral part of the Gulf County edu-
cational community, and in doing so, to provide an alternative school for those parents who desire a Christian education for their chil-
dren.
Faith Christian School believes: that children should be able to study the Bible in a class period set aside for that purpose; that
Biblical truth should be integrated into every course taught; that education should be directed toward meeting the needs of the whole
child-the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual needs; that the home, not the state, isultimately responsible for the kind of
education the child should receive; and that each child is an individual of great value because he or she is created in the image of God
and is a person for whom Christ died.

Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Lighthouse Utilities Co., Inc.

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 through two wells from the pristine Flobridan Aquifer. The Floridan
Aquifer is the primary drinking water source throughout Florida.
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 James R. Simmons at
'(850) 227-7427. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more,: ,.
please call us at the number above.
Lighthouse Utilities Co., Inc. 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.

In the table above you will fnd many terms and abbreviations you might not be familiar with. To help you better
understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Non Detects (ND) laboratory analysis indicates that the constituent is not present.
Non-Applicable (n/a) does not apply. -
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/V) 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 $10,000.000.
Picocuries per liter (pC4 L picocuries per liter is a measure of the radioactivity in water.
Action Level (A) the, concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements
which a water system must follow.
Maximum Contaminant Level The "Maximum Allowed" (MCL) is the highest level of a contaminart that is -
'Illowed 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;: J .:' ',
As you can see by thd 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, constituents
Shave been detected. The EPA has determined that your water IS SAFE at these levels. .
:,The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers: lakes, streams, ponds, reser-
ypirs, 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 c
systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(1.) 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 stormwater
runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemicalcontaminants; including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of
industrial processes ahd petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff,
and septic systems. .
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and
inning activities.
Inorder to ensure that tap water Is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain
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.
SMCLs are set at very stringent levels. To understand the possible health effects described for many regulated con-
stituents, a person would have to drink 2 liters of water every day at the MCL level for a lifetime to have a one-in-
a-million chance of having the described health effect
Total Coliform: The Total Coliform Rule requires water systems to meet a stricter limit for coliform bacteria.
SColiform bacteria are usually harmless, but their presence in water can be an indication of disease-causing bac-"
teria. When coltform bacteria are found, special follow-up tests are done to determine if harmful bacteria are pre-
sent in the water supply. If this limit is exceeded, the water supplier must notify the public by newspaper, televi- .
sion or.radio. Our sampling did not detect any coliform bacteria in 1998.
'Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population'. Immuno-com-
promised 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 to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosportdium and other microbio-
logical contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). .
Our goal at Lighthouse Utilities Co., Inc. is 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.

Mediacom Announces Rebuild in Mexico Beach


Mediacom, Southeast LLC has
announced plans to rebuild and
upgrade the cable system in
Mexico Beach. The fiber optic
upgrade of the system to 750MHz
will cover over 50 miles of cable
plant, as well as the installation of
new headend equipment and
back-up power supplies.
At a cost of over five hundred
thousand dollars, the rebuild
offers many benefits to cable sub-
scribers including. increased
channel capacity, improved relia-
bility, and higher quality picture
and sound. It also, provides a plat-
form for future services currently
only offered in larger metropolitan
markets like high speed internet
access and digital services.
The upgrade will also allow
the addition of six new basic cable
channels. CSPAN II, El Entertain-
ment T.evision, F/X, Home and
Gardeh television The Sunshine
Network, and The Travel Channel
were selected, in part, because of
requests made by customers in
Mexico Beach.
"We're following the city's
lead," said Richard Hale, vice-


president and general manager of
the southeast region of Media-
com. "They're working hard to
make Mexico Beach an even bet-
ter place to live by improving the
water facilities, and we applaud
them for it. We want to do all that
we can as well. We're excited to be
involved with the betterment of
such an idyllic community as it
enters the new millennium.
"Mediacom's first commit-
ment is to their customers, and
their primary goal is to provide
world class service, offer leading
edge technology currently avail-
able, and use that technology to
offer the best programming and
services at the best prices."
Unfortunately, whenever any
major work is being done, incon-
veniences usually occur. As a
result of the hard work being
done on the new sewer system,
Mediacom has experienced some
intermittent outages as a result of
its lines being cut.
Mediacom apologizes to its
customers ahd appreciates their,
patience with the company, as
well as the city, as it works to

Special Report From This Home
Owners built me in 1,995. 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 a home but for now I would mention how beautiful it is to look out from
my double-hung, double-insulaled wood windows with aluminum clading and frame on my exterior. My dear
owners are so proud of my windows and I hope you will like them too.. More information by, me, from me, soon.

On Saturday, September
25th, homeowners of Barrier
Dunes welcomed Port St. Joe res-
ident Ed Franklin to his new posi-
tion as manager.
Homeowners gathered at
Barrier Dunes' beautiful club
house, located on the beach, for a
Hawaiian luau. The club house,
- decorated in a Hawaiian motif of
tropical fish, 'beach balls, and
beach umbrellas, set the party
mood. Also, each guest was greet- .
ed at the door with Hawaiian leis.
The purpose of the gathering
was to acquaint homeowners with
their new manager who, assumed
his duties at Barrier Dunes on
September 1st. Several in atten-
dance commented that even with
the new construction, Barrier
Dunes never looked better.

Whitehead Gets Up Close and Personal With Food Daily


Joseph Whitehead, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Clyde Whitehead of Port
St. Joe, was the subject of a full
page "Special Report" feature arti-
cle in the York Daily Record in
York, Pennsylvania.
In his job as a food sanitarian
for the Pennsylvania Department

bureau, Whitehead was shad-
owed in his daily inspections of
the area's restaurants following
guidelines set by health codes. As
a bottom line, his job is to make
-sure owners and employers know
the right procedures for keeping a
restaurant clean.
"Reaching compliance in-
volves teaching and training
restaurant. employees proper
cleaning procedures," Whitehead
says.
Whitehead is one of three
state inspectors who are respon-
sible for covering most of the
restaurants in York County. Since
1993 at least 39 cases of salmo-
nellosis have been reported annu-
ally pn the county; six cases of
hepatitis A have been reported
each year since 1995.
To become a state food sanrii-
tarian, candidates must have one
of the following: a bachelor's
degree in food science, food tech-.
nology or a closely related field;
an associates degree in food sci-
ence, food technology or a closely
related field and four years of
experience in the inspection of
food/establishments: two years of
military food inspection experi-
ence and four years of inspection .

ing. 'I
Whitehead said there's no
substitute for the experience he
piled up in the 14 years he spent
as a food inspector for the military

Agriculture.
"College wouldn't have taught
me what I learned from the
hands-on experience," he said.

September Is

Literacy Month
Across Florida
September has been desig-:
hated as Literacy Month by
Governor Jeb Bush and the,
Cabinet.
The Gulf County School
District wholeheartedly supports
this proclamation, but, encour-
ages parents to make literacy a
goal every month. Reading to and
with a child helps to build a good
reader.
It is no secret that reading is
a basic skill necessary for success
in school and In life.- However,
sometimes it is forgotten "that
reading can also be a source of
pleasure throughout life.
Each school has programs to
promote reading, but the commu-
nities also have many literacy
programs. For information about
these programs. contact any pub-
lic or private school, or the public
library.
