Working On A Plan
Anticipate Filing with Bankruptcy
Court By the End of This Week
Bondholders filed an objec-
tion to Florida Coast Paper
Company's motion to convert
from Chapter I 1 reorganizational
bankruptcy to Chapter 7 liquida-
tion bankruptcy last week in
Delaware Bankruptcy Court..
During hearings on the bond-
holders' objection Tuesday.
October 5th. Florida Coast Paper
Company and bondholders
announced they have a deal and
are putting a plan together with
: intentions to file it with the court
by the end of this week.
.... This information comes from-
the attorney for the Gull County
Tax Collector. 'Pat Floyd,' after
talking with attorney Jamie
O'Neal who is also representing
the county's interest and oversee-
ing the proceeding in Delaware
There Is no indication what
the plan is or who will maintain
decision-makiing control of ,the
mill if the bankruptcy court
approves the deal being worked
out between the two parties.
According to Floyd, the par-
ties hope to be able to go over the
plans with all, affected groups
soon after the plan is presented to
Florida Coast Paper Company
also asked for and received a
claims bar date of November 5th.
Notices are being serit to creditors
notifying them that all claims
against Florida Coast Paper
:Company must be filed, to the'
bankruptcy court by that date in'
order to receive consideration
tinder the plan. 'Those notices
should have been in the mail to'
crdlitors by The Star press time
The motion to convert Will
come back to the bankruptcy
court on either November 9th or
November 17th. at which time the
"plan" will probably be considered
or ruled upon by U.S. Bankruptcy
Judge Peter J. Walsh. Judge
Walsh has yet to set the final date.,
It was reported in last week's
edition of The Star that bondhold-
ers were eyeing a plan to protect
8165 million in bonds issued to
Florida Coast Paper Company at
If the bondholders had
allowed Florida Coast Paper
Company-to. convert to Chapter 7
liquidation bankruptcy, they
would have likely only received
pennies on the dollar for that
It has also been speculated
that the conversion motion will
have the affect of forcing the
bondholders' hands'and expedit-
ing the bankruptcy process, while
maybe also getting some conces-
sonns from the bondholders.

It Takes Cooperation !
JOHN DIXON, CEO OF NEKTON Diving Cruises, which is
going to build a line of diving cruise boats here, told the Rotary
Club of good things to come last Thursday.
Port Str. Joe ,will beyone.of four places inra the world, building ,
their uniquely engineered and designed boats for the world's water
sports-trade. Port St. Joe will- be in on.the ground floor, so to
speak. in this burgeoning business.
The unique design of the boat makes it almost sway-proof,
reducing the problem of becoming seasick. The design is not so
unique as to be experimental. It is used in several other applica-
tions 'and is already in production by the same firm in
Jacksonville.'They are being forced to move their operation, and
selected Gulf County in which to relocate..
THE BEST PART OF THE WHOLE deal is that the St. Joe
Company, who is supplying the property for them to locate on, is
giving them wholehearted cooperation. DL\on pointed out that I

Hine, with St. Joe Company, told Dixon to select the property he
could use and St. Joe would make it available to him.

Dixon said he has received the same kind of cooperation from
the Gulf County Commission, the GT Corn telephone company.

role to play in theirbeing able to get started building. ',
Dixon made a statement in his address which made all of us
feel good who heard it. He said that if he had known there was .

location for his firm. he would have forgotten all the other places '

one of the longest in environmen-

Why did these two groups
begin working together?
"It really happened by acci-
dent in 1997,", said Rev. Bill
Taylor, Faith Christian School's
administrator. "We had planned
to have our Harvest Festival
downtown at Frank Pate Park. A
scheduling conflict arose, and we
had to move it to the Centennial
Building property-that is, the
pavilions in the back."
FCS's Harvest Festival hap-
pened to be the same weekend of
the Gulf County Health Fair.
Those who were at the health fair
would come, listen to some
music, buy a chicken dinner, and
purchase items from the Harvest

Port St. Joe Middle School
Awarded $33,828 by State
for Significant School Improvement
As part of the Bush/Brogan
A+ Plan for Education, a check in
the amount of $33,828 was pre-
sented to Port St. Joe Middle
School by Representative Bev
Kilmer in a ceremony held in the
high school gym last Thursday,
Representative Kilmer was
very proud of the students and
faculty of Port St. Joe Middle
School and in a surprising move,
invited the student government
representatives and officers to
join her at the podium and pre-
sented the check to them. Kilmer
stated the students, their parents
and the faculty should be very
proud of their accomplishments.
"It's about two things," stated
Port St. Joe Middle School
Principal Carolyn Rish., "High
expectations for every student,
and rolling up your sleeves and
doing it." Added Rish. "Having
high expectations is& not enough,
but the two combined get the job
In her address to the stu-
A A A
dents, faculty and parents, Ms.
Rish laid out the areas of
improvement gained at Port St.
Joe Middle School. From 1998 to
1999, a 5% increase in the num-
ber of students scoring a three
and above on FCAT Reading, a
13% increase in the number of
students scoring a three and
above on FCAT Math and a 44%
increase ih scores of three or bet-
ter on the Florida Writes test.
Other areas in which the
school has inade great strides are
out of school suspensions and
attendance. In 1997, the school's
loss rate to out of school suspen-
sion was 26%. In 1998 that num-
ber was cut to 17.3%. In 1997,
29.3% of the school's students
were absent 20 or more days.
That number dropped to only
5.8% in 1998. Significant
Ms. Rish challenged every
middle school student to meet
and beat the achievement levels of,
1999. Adding to Ms. Rish's com-.

the crowd, "High expectations is
the key to everything we do. It
takes everyone working together
to achieve such rewards." ,
Not forgetting last year's 8th,
graders who contributed to the
school's success, Ms. Rish wrote a'
letter to Port St. Joe High School's
9th grade class congratulating
them on their accomplishments of
last year and encouraging them to6

"The parents and teachers .of

of the good work that their chil-'-

Schools that received an "A"
and those that improved at least"
*one grade based on student
achievement, attendance. dropout
rate, discipline and college readi-
ness were rewarded with up to

PAGE 1OA THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE~, FL THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1999
Fall is really in the air, and its
effects have invigorated game fish,
animals, and outdoors-loving men
and women around the
Panhandle. Cooler temperatures
are bringing on the much antici-
pated fall run of fish.
Spanish were thick along the
beaches and off the tip of St. Joe
Peninsula this past week, and
dozens of boats trolled through the
schools from sun-up to sun-down.
Most of the Spanish averaged 14
to 15 inches, but some anglers
brought in some 20+ inch fish that
weighed 5 to 6 pounds. .
Mixed in with the Spanish
were some bluefish and some large
ladyfish. The limits have not
changed, yet: 10 fish with a 12
inch minimum per person per day.
The kings made an appear-
ance this past week, also. Large
schools of kings have been report-
ed along Pensacola, Destin,
Panama City, and now our area..
In the Treasure Island Marina
Tourney two weeks ago, nearly a
. TON of kings were brought in. This
weekend's PCMI Tournament had
a large turnout of anglers and the
fishing was also very good.
The hotspot for the kings in
our area lately has, been the buoy
line. Many boats had limits and
some weighed kings that neared
30 pounds this past week. Several
reported being spooled by some
obvious early smokers while slow-
trolling live baits around buoy #3
or #5. .

This Week's Fishing Report
For September 26th to October 3rd .
Everyone is looking for th.e fall run' of kings; but they seem to be hid-
ing a little ,farther offshore. Most king fishermen are finding plenty of
large Spanish. The boats that venture out beyond the carbody reef-and
have patience-are catching a few nice kings.
Offshore fishing is still very productive, but you have to be very salty
to endure the wind and seas. It seems we are in a cycle of one weather
front after another, and it is keeping the gulf very rough..
Fishing along the beaches is getting better each' day with- pompano,
whiting, and some Spanish.

How often should a child receive a routine med-
ical examination? Between one and three years, three
times a year; three to six years, two examinations year;
six to twelve years, one examination yearly.
Even with an apparently healthy child, a regular
schedule of examinations is important. There are many
conditions without obvious symptoms that only a physi-

Months to Plant
It's no wonder strawberries
are so widely grown by sunshine
state gardeners. In addition to
their taste appeal and attractive
appearance, they're well suited to
Florida conditions. Even though
their multi-million dollar commer-
cial production is limited to just a
few areas, they are grown by hob-
byists throughout our state.
In Florida, strawberries are
grown as annuals. Strawberries
plants can be set from now
through mid-November in North

However, most home gardeners
destroy such plants and start over
again in the next fall.
Although strawberries can be
grown in just about any type
Florida soil, they don't do as well
in peat or muck. Strawberries like
a well-drained soil, which is moist
but not wet. Sandy soils with
plenty of organic matter is best.

themselves under Florida condi-

Strawberries should be plant-
ed in raised beds, which are two
feet wide and spaced two feet

As you can see by the table, our system had no violations. We're proud that your drinking water meets or exceeds all.Federal :1
and State requirements. We have learned through our monitoring and testing that some constituents have been detected. The'i.
EPA has determined that your water 5IS SAFE at these levels. 'I'i
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, pounds, reservoirs, springs,
and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring mineral
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 stormwater runoff, and
residential uses. '
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of indus-
trial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff and septic sys- ''
terns. .. ;
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the results of oil and gas production and mining',
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contam-
inants 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. .. '
Al rnigwtr nldn ote ae, ma.esnbyb epce ocnai tlatsal mut fsm cont
All drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some cont-
aminants..The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More informa-
tiofi 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.
MCLs are set at very stringent levels. To understand the possible health effects described for many regulated constituents, a per-t
son 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 hav-
ing the described health effect.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised
persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplant, people with
HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These peo-
ple should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDCguidelines on appropriate means to,
lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking
Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
We at The City of Wewahitchka 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. ,

From the Staff and Students at
Elementary, Middle and High School Edacation Facilities
Several teachers, "in both the
traditional and multi-age classes
at WES, employ thematic curricqu7,
la. In a theme, activities and
materials are organized around a
central topic. Themes provide a
natural link between different
areas of the curriculum.:
Thematic units draw on stu-
dents' prior knowledge. They are,
organized in such a way as to cap-
italize on their natural ability to.
make connections between what
they already know and what is
bding introduced or studied.
Learning is enhanced as stu-
dents use past, knowledge and
experience to process new infor-
mation. This new knowledge then
becomes the base for future les-

theme. Students and teachers
need to' immerse themselves in

Through literature 'students

The cheerleaders have started
their "Spirit of the Century" contest,
and, so far.it seems to be ,working
very well. The contest is for senior
high students. The grade level that
shows the most school spirit will
win a reward, such as a school
party.-or t-shirts.I. .
Ofi Friday, 'October 1st, our
principal Dr. Truby held assemblies
for the senior and junior high stu-
dents at. separate times. The pur-
pose' was so he could spend time
with the students' and discuss the
topic of' Sailing the 'Cs' of Success."
He listed words that began with
a "C", such as creditability, and
then discussed the meaning of each
'word. He. demonstrated each by
telling jokes' with the help of the
varsity cheerleaders and a few. stu-
dents from the audience.
Also on Friday, the varsity foot
ball team hosted the Cottondale
Hornets at Gator Field. After a com-
pelling game, the Gators won 26-20;
they are now 3-1. Congratulations
to the team on its victorious win.
The J.V. team did not play last-
Thursday, its open day in the sea-
son. However, its next game will be
October 7. Please come out and

The J.V. and varsity volleyball
.teams played Vernon and Bristol at

;the girls have not lost their sense of
spirit. Good luck the next time girls.
WHS has added another club to,
its list of extracurricular, activities.
What club is this you wonder? Well,
it's golf. The team consists of 10
members who'work hard and prac-
Jice every week. All the boys in the
