Wewa Commission
Considers Additional
Exemption for Elderly
Wewahitchka city commis-
sloners held their first reading of
San ordinance to allow an addition-
al, $25,000 homestead exemption
to qualified senior citizens.
If the board adopts the ordi-
nance during its next meeting, all
three Gulf County taxing authori-
ties will have approved the extra
exemptions.
Florida lawmakers recently
made the additional savings a
possibility by allowing local gov-
ernrment to consider the measure
as a local option. Persons who are
651or older and have an income of
less than $20,000 qualify for the
new ad valorem tax exemption
provided local taxing authorities
have adopted the measure by
ordinance.

tower.

Gulf/Franklin Solves


Sewer Problems Mon.

Plans for Future Campus Expansion


Sewer problems at the
Gulf/Franklin Center have
plagued the school nearly since
students began to fill the halls.
College trustees have decided that
enough is enough and are taking
immediate action to put things
back in motion.
"We're all' terribly embar-
rassed that students are having to
go home in order to use function-
ing restrooms,", President ,Bob
McSpadden said Friday morning.
Port-a-pottles have been
strategically located on the
school's campus for use until
early this week when contractors
enacted a plan for a quick tempo-
rary fix coupled with a permanent
solution.
Ralph Roberson, vice chair-
man of the board, said a tempo-
rary by-pass line and pump were
installed over the weekend provid-
ing a temporary emergency solu-


tion to the problem.
Roberson and McSpadden
met with all parties involved in
the building's construction and
design last Friday to iron out
some of the details and determine
how best to fix the problem.
After the meeting, McSpad-
den said that the grade of the
plumbing lines between the col-
lege and main sewer lines appears
to be the problem. The 'college
proceeded with the emergency
quick fix and is enlarging the
main drainage line from 6" to 10"
lines as its permanently repairs
the problem-all at a cost of
$12,000.
"We'll determine fault later,"
McSpadden said, as he explained
the primary focus now was to get
the restrooms back in full opera-
tion.

Traylor Suit and Ethics

Violation Outcome Near


Hess Dismisses
to Levy Fine on
The outcome of a civil suilt
aid ethics complaints against
Gulf County Commissioner Billy
Traylor came one step closer to a
conclusion during the past week
Circuit Judge Glenn L. Hess
granted a motion to dismiss a civil
suit filed against Traylor, and
attorneys and investigators for
the State Ethics Commission
reported they found no season to
pursue three, of the five ethics
charges brought against him.
The two other charges
revolved around voting to pay.
some invoices of business associ-
ates during the board's meetings.
Probable 'cause was found oni
those two ethics violations.
A recommendation is expect-
ed to go before the full ethics com-
mission next week. Trayrlor has
acknowledged to the commission

that he .did violate the statute,
,and in turn they are recommend-
ing a fine of $300 be applied.
In the investigators' suminmary
it states, "There is no showing
that he (Traylor) undertook said
votes with wrongful intent or for
personal profit."
Other ethics charges that
Trayloir isused road paving
funds, dealings with Wewahitchka
State Bank, and votes to change
contracts tb help associates were
found to be without probable
cause.
The ethics violations' were
filed with the State Ethics

missed by Judge HesS were David

GroundBreaking Ceremonies Held


for Wewahitchka Sr. Citizen Building


Thanks to a joint effort by
Wewahitchka city commissioners
and Gulf County commissioners,
the Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs has agreed to fund
the construction of 'a special
needs storm shelter in
Wewahitchka.
A groundbreaking for the
.shelter, which will be located adja-
cent to the present Wewahitchka
Community Center, was held on
October 9th.
The shelter will be 20' by 40'
and accommodate 15 special
needs persons along with one
caregiver during an emergency
situation. It will not be used to
house the general public.
"This building is for frail,
elderly men and women who need
continuous electricity In order to
maintain their life support,"
reports Jerry Stokoe, Executive
Director of the Gulf County Senior
Citizens Association.
The building will be fortified
to withstand 140 miles-per-hour
winds and will be equipped with a


back-up generator. Additionally,
the building will be used daily,
Monday through Friday, as a
senior citizens activity room, arid
as a community meeting place


nightly and on weekends.
Ike Mincy Construction, the
shelter's building company, is
expected to begin work within the
next month.

"STOP" Signs


Are For Stopping

A Little Defensive Driving Will

Work Wonders With Any Intersection
THE INTERSECTION AT FIFTH Street and Garrison Avenue
has heated up considerably! Folks are getting all in a tizzy
about what to do to make it a safer place to be. It has always been
a more or less dangerous place to travel, but since the location of
the post office on that 'corner, things have sort of heated up.
All of a sudden, people are getting concerned with the poten-
tial danger which exists there.
Two accidents inside of a week at the intersection have attract-
ed the attention of the rank and file to the location as a source of
trouble. Folks are beginning to wonder, "What's the problem?" Or,
"Is there a problem here which needs our attention?"
If there is a problem here which needs our attention, immedi-
ately, what is'it?
A TRIP TO THE OFFENDING CORNER to ferret out any
underlying and insidious problem lurking around, which might
unnecessarily add up to an extra accident or two occurring at the
point on any given time, escaped our attention. We saw none. The
intersection is:open in all directions. There is no excuse for a dri-
ver riot seeing an' approaching;vehicle which might spell "Danger!".
The only "problem" which we could see was the judicious loca-
tion of a "STOP" sign placed at the intersection. Everybody knows
riobody pays attention to "STOP" signs in Port St. Joe. "STOP"
signs must mean, "slow downr",or, "take the foot off the gas pedal
momentarily", for all the attention which is paid to them when we
are driving.
It has. been .a habit with Port St. Joe drivers to sort of ignore
"STOP? signs in the past. They're placed all over town, at all inter-
sections ... .for decoration! -
A LOT OF FOLKS SAY WE NEED a signal light at the inter-
section, but the DOT says the traffic count won't justify one at this
point. The intersection of Highways 71 and 98 is the only one in
town which comes .close to justifying a light. Since Fifth Street, at
the intersection. with Garrison Avenue, is a state highway, state
rules apply. .
As a' short term "fix" for making the intersection safer, we
would' suggest that everyone in town start stopping at ,t~e inter-
sections. Stop, Look and Listen. Then, if it's safe, cross the inter-
section!



Solving Crimes Quickly

S E HAD OUR FIRST CASE OFmrurder sinqe eanyar
Jas, t eek, Murder is not our most common.crime. committed, ,It
shardLy. keeps our law ,eforcement.agencies trained in its investi-
gation. Still, the law enforcement agencies wasted little time in
Securing a viable suspect in the case.
Sheriff Frank McKeithen said the solving of the case was a
direct benefit of living in a small community. Even the cats are
known to be of the stray variety as opposed to being someone's
pet. Every time someone shows up in an unaccustomed place,
someone notices it and reports it if something comes up amiss.
Some people might not like living in a glass bowl such as Gulf
County, but it affords a level of protection not enjoyed by many.
people in our state. .
'WE'LL NOT BUY SHERIFF McKEITHEN'S description of how
the law enforcement happened to arrest a suspect so quickly in
the case, completely. We suspect there was at least a little bit of
trained expertise in arriving at whom to arrest.
; Police around here' have always been able to pinpoint any
wrongdoer from people they know, or don't know.
For whatever the reason, though; it is comforting to know that
it takes nothing more complicated than a person being seen in a
place where he wouldn't ordinarily be. to be a suspect when a
crime is committed. That's the reason we are able to live in a com-
munity where unlocked doors are common. Let's strive hard to
keep it that way! :

Traylor Takes Over Chair; County-Wide Voting???


Gulf County commissioners
had a changing of the guard dur-
ing their Tegular meeting Tuesday
evening as Commissioners Billy
Traylor took over duties as the
board's chairman and Commis-
sioner Nathan Peters, Jr.
remained as vice chairman.
Traylor took over as chairman
presented outgoing chair Tommy
Knox with an engraved gavel, and
thanked him for his service to the
b.ard and Gulf County over his
orie year tenure as chairman.
S Traylor also outlined several
objectives he hopes can be
accomplished by the board during,
the upcoming year. Those includ-
ei work on park and recreational
facilities (including the new sports


complex for Port St. Joe), bringing
jobs to Gulf County, recognition
of .volunteer fire departments,
completion of the administration
building, and taking a special
look at the needs of senior citi-
zens.
All was not roses though, as
friends .and family members of
Commissioner John Stanley con-
tinued to voice their objections to.
the board overlooking Stanley for
either the chair or vice chair.
seats.
County-Wide Voting
Commissioner John Stanley
brought the subject of county-
wide voting back before the board.
He made a motion for the board to


find out a timeline and develop a
strategic plan to go back to coun-
ty-wide voting.
In 1992, Gulf County voters
overwhelmingly supported a refer-
endum to go back to county-wide
voting and representation of com-
missioners.
But, as County Attorney Tim
McFarland pointed out, Gulfs sit-
uation is different than others. He
explained that the county went to
single member districts by con-
sent order (all parties agreed to
the change) and unless those par-
ties agree to change, the odds of
getting the order changed are not
good.
Not only will it be difficult to
get it reversed, but; McFarland


estimated the cost at $150,000 to
$250,000 in legal fees to make an


attempt to get it changed.

The major issue to local resi-
dents was;concern about the loss
of local access to beachfront prop-
erty along the study area, and
how realigning the road would
impact. traffic conditions in other-
areas along St. Joe Beach.
'During Tuesday's -county
commission meeting most of the
board voiced an objection to the
sample alignment plans present-
ed by St. Joe during the first
workshop. Both Commissioners
Tommy Knox and Nathan Peters,
Jr. said the plans would create an
unacceptable traffic hazard, espe-
cially where the road ties back
into St. Joe Beach.
Knox said he was for man-
aged growth in Gulf County, but
not what he saw in those plans.
Peters agreed that Gulf County
a' nd St. Joe/Arvida still need :to
come together and find common
ground.

used state-wide. Information
received from calls from local
exchanges, including Mexico
Beach. will be forwarded to Gulf
County officials. The system has'
been tested throughout the area
with no problems.
Gulf County became the sixth
-'-.bf,67 Florida counties to enact the
program. Del. Norcum said she
hopes to have at least 12 counties
activated by the end of the year.


From Page 1
Commissioner Warren Yeager,
informed the board that he had
spoken with Chris Corr and Chris
Hine at St. Joe/Arvida. "They
heard the public and I believe
there will be some common
ground reached," he said. He
pointed out. to the board that a
back beach road, behind St. Joe
Beach and Mexico Beach, seemed'
to him to be the only acceptable
option.
During a telephone interview
with Chris Corr, Vice President of
Strategy and New Ventures for St.,
Joe/Arvida, Wednesday morning,
he verified Yeager's assessment.
Corr.said, "Everyone may not
have an exact agreement on the
road, but'we hope to work togeth-
er and work it out."
"We're also going to look at a
larger realignment plan similar to,
a Back Beach' Road," he added..
Corr stressed that the only,
objective of St. Joe/Arvida is to'
simply study the transportation,
issues. '
In April of 2000 another pub-'
lic hearing-will be held to reveal
the.findings of the study.
Pollard said several options
are possible including leaving the
current. Highway 98 roadbed in
place versus realigning it further
inland, 'Ior even some other -alterL -
native yet to be identified. -
A' hand-out including the

motion eventually died for lack of
a second.
Willie Roche recommended
that the board put the question
back on the ballot as a referen-
dum, and see if taxpayers are
willing to spend what it will take
in tax dollars to attempt, to
reverse the court order. The board
agreed to ask the attorney to
review the language for the refer-
endum and bring it back to the
board at its next meeting.
David Roche suggested the
'board might also look at compro-
mising by establishing a county-
wide minority district, but main-
tain the other seats as county-
wide.
Nathan Peters, Jr. (one of the
parties in the original suit) made

no comment on the discussion
and voted against further looking
into the matter.
Veterans Nursing Home
Gulf County Veterans Service
Officer Bo Williams gave the
board an update on efforts to lure
a- new Florida veterans nursing
home facility to Gulf County.
Williams said the paperwork
is 'going forth, but it will be sever-
al months before a site determi-
nation is made. ..
He also reminded everyone of
the; importance of public input
and support government repre-
sentatives. Chairman Traylor
noted that he and Commissioner
Yeager would be visiting with
Governor Jeb Bush for a sched-
uled meeting, and they would also
include a pitch for the nursing
home complex.
Williams said the home cbuld
have nearly 87 million annual
impact on the county's economy if
it came to Gulf County.
In Other Business
*Board agreed to use part of
retainage money being held over
from the Wewahitchka Health
Department addition to reim-
burse the county for several items

PSi High Participating in Nat'l

School Improvement Initiative


Port St. Joe High School has
been selected as one of five high
schools in the United States to
participate in the BEST program,
a three-year school -improvement
initiative directed by the
Foundation for Excellent Schools
(FES).
The national program, funded
by the Charles Stewart Mott
Foundation and numerous local
funding agencies, has recognized
PSJHS as a "highly motivated,
well administered institution with
the potential to become a model
community learning center for the
20th century."
Building Excellent Schools
Together (BEST) was initiated last
year. State and local education
leaders were invited to nominate
schools for the program, and FES
officials visited dozens of schools
'across the U.S., including Port St.
doe High.
Teams from each institution
selected will gather with groups
from dozens of other schools in
FES programs nationwide, for a
three-day workshop and confer-
ence in Stowe, Vermont in early
November.
"Education works best when
everyone gets involved-teachers.
students, parents, school board
members, and, other community
leaders," said ES president and
founder, Rick Dalton. "The
national conference explores how
to develop and sustain the com-


mitment and connection that
helps create excellent schools."
BEST was announced at last
year's conference, attended by
U.S. Secretary of Education
Richard Riley.
The team representing Port
St. Joe High will include Mary Lou
Cumbie, Principal Chris A.
Early. 'Susan Gannon, Pat
Lowrey, Melissa Ramsey, and
Martha N. Weimorts.
"Our emphasis on collabora-
tion and partnership helps
schools and communities achieve
success for every child," Dalton
said.
"The schools that participate
in the program will become mod-
els of school reform in their
regions and for the country. We
will work with them to develop
and implement locally conceived,
practical plans to improve educa-
tional opportunities for all stu-
dents. Our work nationwide has.
shown that this community con-
nection is essential to a success-
ful school transformation, as
schools are integral to and
defined by their communities," he
added.
Since 1991, the Foundation
for Excellent Schools, a nonprofit
based organization in Cornwall,
Vermont, has worked successfully
with more than 50 schools
nationwide.
The FES strategy was first


implemented in Port St. Joe
through the Gulf County
Scholarship Prbgram and sibse-
quently spread to nine communi-
ties in the South, where it signifi-
cantly increased attendance, test
scores, graduation, and college
going rates.'
Because each school serves a
distinct community and faces
unique challenges, improvement
plans must be tailored to individ-
ual needs, resources, and obsta-
cles.
FES helps schools and com-
munities develop and strengthen
practices that will create lasting'
improvement while giving schools
and communities ownership of
the process, creating a momen-
tum for reform that lasts long
after the schools complete their
three-year commitment.
Through the FES web site,
newsletter, and annual confer-
ence, FES enables its national
network of schools and communi-
ties to share successful practices
and to support one another in the
process of change.
.The 15 BEST schools repre-
sent 13 different, states. In addi-
tion to Port St. Joe Highithe BEST
schools are Havana Northside in
Havana; Armstrong -High in
Richmond, Tennessee; Beloit
Memorial High-, in Beloit,,
Wisconsin; El Reno High in El
Reno, Oklahoma; Garden City
High in Garden City, Kansas.
Humboldt High in Humboldt,
Tennessee; Kingstree Senior High
in Kingstree, South Carolina;
Lowville Academy Junior-Senior
in Lowville, New York; Oberlin'
High in Oberlin, Ohio; Petersburg
High in Petersburg, Virginia;
Sem naHigh School in Selma,
Alabama; West Point High School
in West Point, Mississippi;
Winder-Barrow High in Winder,
Georgia, and Woodsville High in
Woodsville, New Hampshire. '
"We were very impressed with
*the team, and program we
observed in our visit to Port St.
Joe," Dalton said. "There is a clear
message of commitment to quali-
ty education and a willingness to
develop new cooperative pro-
grams with the community. These
elements, along with a dedicated
leadership that we observed on all
levels, are critical to success in
this program."

Five Facts About Lupus...

October Observed as Lupus Awareness Month


Dear Editor
We will achieve the goal for
the spawning potential ratio of
mullet within the next year or
before, proclaimed Florida Wildlife
Commission biologist, Bill Tehan.
We are ahead of our schedule!
This statement was given last
week at the FWCC meeting in
'Clearwater. Next, attorney Ronald
A. Mowery askes if there is no bio-
logical emergency, why take from
the people that which was given to
them by 72% of Florida voters,
November 8, 1994. Shortly there-
after, the FWCC restricted the
cast net to approximately 300-sq.
ft.
Voters gave the citizens a 500-
sq. ft. cast new with Amendment
J three that became Article 10
Section 16 of the Florida


Constitution. With the useless
taking of people's rights by the
FWCC, we quickly realized that
the power intoxication of the
Commission is equal to that of the
old Marine Fisheries Commission.
We asked, why hurt the people
when it's not necessary?
Also this last week 'the
Attorney General Bob Butter-
worth's office filed with the First
District Court' of Appeals to stop
the Honorable Circuit Judge
Sandy Sauls from holding an evi-
dentiary trial on rectangular nets
and the rights of citizens to have
equal access and opportunity to
Florida marine resources.
The Attorney General, under-
stands that the first DCA is the
."Net Ban" Court and will stop the
citizens from. getting this issue
resolved by the Florida. Supreme
Court. We'll know within 30 days
if the prayers of fishermen touch
this prejudicial court and let us
continue: Can the Executive
Branch deny you access to the
Judicial Branch to resolve a prob-
lem? Our Government has failed
us if this is so.
Within 30 days the Fishermen
will stage a protest to attempt get-
ting jusuce for citizens. County
governments passed resolutions
for a Grand, Jury to look into the
alleged crimes by the state, peti-
tioris have been given to Governor

Enough is Enough


Bush requesting an investigation,
personal requests to State
Attorney Meggs have been made,
and requests to the U.S.
Attorneys.
Enough is enough, and we
will protest using nylon rectangu-
lar nets, less than 500 sq. ft. with
the mesh size of the targeted
species allowing the juvenile fish
to escape. The protest will contin-
ue until this government consid-
ers our request. Next week we will

crimes by the ctate against its
people.

Gulf Rifle Club
Rifle Matches
The Gulf Rifle Club will hold
three separate .22 rifle benchrest
matches on Saturday morning,
October 16th. Set-up and regis-
tration will start at 8:30 and the
first match, an ARA match, will
start at 9:30.
The ARA match 'is a precision
bullseye match fired with the rifle
Supported on a benchrest. A tar-
get with 25 bullseyes is placed 50
yards from the firing line and the
shooter 'has 20 minutes to fire a
shot at'each bullseye.
There are no restrictions on
rifle weight, scope power, or grade
,of ammo. Maximum possible
score is 2,500.
After the completion of the
ARA match, a modified IR 50/50
match will be shot. This match
consists of a target with 25
bullseyes placed 50 yards from
the firing line ...
,.- r One shot is allowed to be fired
,,at each bullseye with a time limit
of 30 minutes. The rifle will be
restricted to a sporter type .22.
rifle with a weight limit of 8.5
pounds. Scope power cannot be
set greater than 6.5 power and the
cost of the .22 ammo cannot
exceed $2 per box.
Just about any good squirrel
rifle will work in this match, and
by limiting the cost of the ammo,
anyone can afford to shoot this
match.. Shooters under 18 years
are not charged entry fees.
The third match will be
another IR 50/50 match with the
rifle weight limit increased to 10.5
pounds. There are no limits on
scope power or cost of .22 LR
ammunition. In both IR 50/50
matches the maximum possible
score is 250.
Last Saturday, the club held
its monthly 22 rim-fire bullseye
and hunter pistol metallic silhou-
ette matches.
The bullseye match had nine
entries and Calvin Dean *on with
a score of 742-5x. Houston Whit-
field was second ,with 737-10x
and Ralph. Roberts was third with
710-3x.
The silhouette match was won
by Whitfield with ',15" targets
knocked down. Dean was second
with 14 targets and Tommy Wood
was third with nine targets. This
match had nine entries.


of the people with lupus, discoid
lupus can evolve into the systemic
form of the disease, which can
affect almost any organ or system
of the body, and this manifesta-
tion cannot be predicted or pre-
vented. Drug-induced lupus
occurs less frequently after the
use of certain prescribed drugs.
*The cause of lupus is
unknown, but environmental and
genetic factors play a role.
Examples of the environmental
factors that may trigger the dis-
ease are: infections, antibiotics
(especially those in the sulfa and
penicillin groups), ultraviolet
light, and extreme stress..
*Though lupus is thought of
as a disease only affecting women,
many men are also affected.
Lupus can occur at any age and
in either sex, although it does
occur, more frequently among
women, possibly because of hor-
mones.


The increase of disease signs
before menstrual periods and/or
during pregnancy supports the
belief that hormones, particularly
estrogen, may be involved, but
this has not been confirmed.
*Lupus is difficult to diagnose
because the signs are often vague
and intermittent. There is no sin-
gle laboratory test that can deter-
mine whether a person has lupus
or not, so diagnosis is usually
made by a careful review of a per-
son's entire medical history paired
with multiple test results.
*With early diagnosis and
current methods of therapy, 80 to
90 percent of people who suffer
from lupus can anticipate a nor-
mal life span if they follow the
instructions of their physician,
take their medications) as pre-
scribed, and know when to seek
help for unexpected side effects of
a medication or new develop-
ments of the disease.


to remind you of some important points

to help assure your financial security.


* Be suspicious ofanyone posing in an official capacity who asks for help
in an audit or investigation by having you withdraw funds or volunteer
account, information. Please be sure to remember that any information
involving your financial status, cash, credit cards, or bank accounts
should, remain confidential.

* Be alert to any tactic aimed at scaring you into making account with-
drawals. Understanding, our extensive Y2K efforts for the safety of your
accounts will make faIling "victim" to irresponsible information less like-
ly.

* Be careful if someone"tries to sell you anything "Guaranteed" to fix or
prevent a Year 2000 problem. It may just be another scare tactic.


Remember...

* The FDIC and other regulators are.working hard to ensure that financial
institutions are minimizing the potential for Y2K disruptions.

* FDIC-insured deposits are completely safe. FDIC insurance is a constant,
a given, a guarantee youi can literally bank on.

Did you know that more
Americans have 'lupus than AIDS,
cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis,
sickle-cell anemia or cystic fibro-
sis combined, and the disease is
10-15 times 'more likely to affect
women than men?
Since October is Lupus
Awareness Month, it is a good
time to become familiar with the
signs, because the best method
for controlling lupus is early
detection and proper treatment.
"Lupus is not a well-known
disease, nor is it well understood
by persons outside the medical
community," said Robert J.
Forster, M.D., vice president of
care and network management for
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of
Florida's lNorth Geographic
Business Unit. "Increased aware-,
ness will benefit the estimated two
million Americans who currently
have this devastating illness as
well as bring hope to those who
face it in the future."
Because its signs are sporadic
and imitate the symptoms of
many other illnesses, lupus-an
elusive disease that attacks' and
weakens the immune system-is
difficult to diagnose. Lupus
affects African-American women
two to three times more often than
caucasian women and is more
prevalent among certain ethnic
groups, including Latinos, native
Americans and Asians.
For most people, lupus is a
mild disease affecting only a few
organs. But for others, it may
cause serious and even life-
threatening problems. In' fact,
thousands of Americans die each
year from lupus-related cormplica-
tions.
To help increase awareness of
this potentially deadly disease,
Blue Cross and Blue: Shield of
Florida offers these five fast facts
about lupus, With information
provided by the Lupus Founda-
tion of America.
*There are three types of
lupus: discoid, systemic, and
drug-induced. Discoid lupus is
always limited to the skin. It .is
identified by a rash that may
appear on the face, neck, and
scalp.

Plans To Expand
"Our long term plans are to
expand the Gulf/Franklin Cen-,
ter," McSpadden said, as he
explained the reasons for increase
in diameter of sewer pipe size
from 6" to 10". Anyone who rides
by and looks at the campus might
get the impression those expan-
sion plans are already well under-
way.
The school is currently in the
middle of a major addition of
nursing program classrooms and
a vocational center. The new $1.2
million addition should be com-
plete by early spring and will add
much needed space to the already
overcrowded facility.
The nursing program will
receive a shot in the arm with ai
completely' equipped hospital
room to train in. Other vocational
programs such as plumbing, car-
pen try, and electrical will be able
to take advantage of a general
purpose training center arrange-
ment.
Some $111,000 has also been
approved by the board to land-
-'scape the campus grounds. New
signage is being constructed at
the intersection of Garrison
Avenue and Highway 98 also.
New Campus Coordinator
Mike Lasch6 recently came on
board as the campus coordinator
for the Gulf/Franklin Center. He
is originally from Marianna and in
fact has ties to Port St. Joe. His
mother is a Baltzell and he has
extended relations who were

Commissioner Traylor made
this press release public
Wednesday morning concerning
the ethics charges against him-
@, "Several individuals filed
complaints against me with the
State Ethics Commission. Among
the complaints were allegations
that I had misused myposition by
paving roads for relatives, that I
had misused my position by deal-
ing with Wewahitchka State
Bank, of which my wife and her
family are part owners, and that I
had voted to pay invoices of peo-
ple who had been ,in business
with me. Most of these allegations
Sarose frm instances .that ,hap-
pened several years ago.
After a thorough investiga-
tion. the State Ethics Commission
found there was no reason to
believe that probable cause exist-
ed in three of the five complaints;
that is, the attorney and investi-
gator for the state felt they should
not pursue any further the allega-

tions regarding the toads or the
bank, but they did think there
was probable cause in the issue of
voting to pay some of the invoices
of some business associates.
For a short period'of time in
1995, Ralph Fisher, Ralph Rish,
and I had formed a company with
the intention of building a conve-
nience store. Shortly after the for-
mation of this company, I began
to have to abstain from votes as a
county commissioner because the
issues involved these two part-
ners.
After a few weeks it became
apparent to all of us that we could
not have any business dealings
because it caused too many con-'
flicts between county business
and my private business..
It was my intention to abstain
from votes when either of ;fid'&
gentlemen had any matters before
the board of county commission-
ers, but on some occasions it
slipped by without my realizing
that I needed to abstain. During-
September 1995, our business
relationship of only a few months
was dissolved and we have not
had any business relationship
since that time.
When these votes were,
brought to my attention by a state
employee at the ethics conmmnis-'
sion, I readily admitted that I had
made a mistake and that I had no
legal excuse to offer. I therefore
stpulated to the ethics commis-
sion that I had violated the.
statute. This was a mistake for
which I am very sorry and I have
been advised that I will have to;
pay a fine for this error.
The recent television story
indicating that I am operating a
store with these individuals is'
completely wrong and has noo
basis in truth. As previously stat-
ed, I have had no business deal-
ings with these people for more
than four years.
Also, the allegation in the
news release that while I was con-
nected with these people I voted to'
pay .a bill of over $70,000 is like-
wise 'untrue. This legitimate'
invoice was presented after my'
business relationship with these.
men ceased to exist.
This has been a very trying,
experience for my family and me.,
but I believe it will make me a
wiser and better commissioner. t
hope that the citizens of Gulf
County will forgive me for making"
this mistake."

It is not safe to assume that an abdominal a

St. Joe Beach Couple Wins Big


, St. Joe Beach residents,
Brian and Jann Stoneback
returned from a two week vaca-
tion in Germany where they had
been visiting their daughter and
son-in-law who are stationed
there in the U.S. Air Force.
Brian and Jann, who travel to
Biloxi, Mississippi a few times per
month had different motives for
being home. Jann wanted to rest,
Brian wanted to get ready for a
trip back to Biloxi.
On Friday, October 1st, Brian'
announced to Jann, who was still
recuperating from the interna-
tional flight, "You have to go with
me to drive the car back home, so
that I can drive my new truck
back."
Over the past three months,
the Stonebacks had acquired
chances to win a brand new truck
through a point system gained
through participation, at the Isle of
Capri Casino. Brian was confident
. and had a quite a'few chances
between him and his wife's enjoy-
ment atthe casino.
On Sunday, October 3rd,
approximately 35,000 entries had
been entered into the drawing.
Brian and Janri, of course, were
present up close and personal
anticipating their name being
drawn.
What they did not expect to


happen was to have both of their
names drawn to be included in
the five-finalist pool. They were,
however. Each of the five finalists
received a miniature truck with a
key in it and $500, Each of the
finalists got to keep their $500,
whether they won the truck or
not. /
To build anticipation, the
casino held another drawing from
the entire 35,000 entrants for
$1,000 cash prize. Luck contin-
ued to hold for the Stoneback
family as Brian's name was called
to receive the cash prize.
Finally, with expectations
growing higher and higher,, the

"Planet Ag" Helps Students Explore World of Agricultural Science


It's the time of year that
strikes anxiety in the hearts of
many students and their parents
as many middle and high school
students begin their annual
search for ideas for their science
fair projects.
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Bob Crawford is encourag-
ing students to explore the world
of agricultural science when con-
sidering topics for their projects.
To help them, the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
'Consumer Services developed


"Planet Ag," an Internet web site
packed with information to assist
students in selecting a topic and
carrying out their science fair pro-
ject.

"Agriculture is a high-tech
industry that will require talent-
ed, scientifically inclined people to
guide it into the next millenni-
um," Crawford said. "We need to
encourage today's bright young
students to become interested in
agriculture and excited about its
role in our planet's future. This


web site allows students to
explore the world of agricultural
science and will enable them to
think about agriculture in new
and exciting ways."
Planet Ag provides students
with an explanation of the scien-
tific method, from choosing a
topic and stating a hypothesis, to
deciding on a procedure and
recording the results.

The web site also provides a-
sample project for students to;
review, a look at previous win->
ners' projects and links to other. ,
agriculture- and science-related
sites.
,Among *the hundreds of sci-
ence fair project ideas featured at
Planet Ag are:
*How are seeds and seedlings'
affected by gravity?
*How can a seedless water-'
melon be grown from seed?
*How are molds and bacteria,

MEDITATIONS OF A
( nuntrg tread er
By LOWELL F. ADAMS


A New Covenant ,
"I will make a New
Covenant"
HEBREWS 8:8.

Z HE FIRST COVENANT of God with His
people was The Mosaic Covenant, or The Law.
It required people's complete obedience. In effect, God
was saying, "If you will keep the law, I will save you."
But no one ever kept the whole law. Ever!
In Hebrews :8; God says, Finding fault with
,them, the days will come, when I will make a New
,Covenant." It is outlined. in John 3:16. In the New
..Covenant God..ays "I will!" not "If you will."
In Ephesians 2:8-9, God tells us, "By GRACE you,
,are saved, through FAITH: (belief in Jesus)and that not
of yourselves:.',t is THE GIFT of God. Not of works
(keeping the lawb lest any one should boast."
:. It was necessary Scriptu rely that The Law be kept.
':in it's entirety (fulfilled). If.anyone sinned, they had tQ:
confess that to the priest. The priest then must kill anr
innocent lamb, bffer ts blood in sacrifice for that sin.
nIn Matthe "5,;:17-18, Jesus, said, "Think not that I
am come to destroy The Law, .,. I am not come to
:'destroy, but to fulfill. Till heaven and earth pass away,
one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law,
till all be fulfilled." So Jesius fulfilled The Law, for us
who would believe and accept Him as God's Son,
Under the New Covenant, God puts the law in our,
hearts. fe wants us to not sin (I John 2:1). He knows
we live in this sinful old body, however, and in I John
2 1-2, he says, "If anyone sins, we have an Advocate
with the Father, Jesus Christ, The Righteous. He is the
Propitiation for our sins.": The word propitiate means to
make right, to forgive, to win the favor of, to clear or
blot out. Having been born of God's Spirit, we have a
newnature, and really WANT to live sinless. And we do
TRY. But sometimes Satan gets the best of us. Our sin,
however is already taken care of by Jesus. Praises bel
While living on earth Jesus, kept every iota of The
Law, fulfilling it. When He died on the cross, He gave
His blood, as a sacrifice for all our sins. "Whosoever
believes that Jesus is the Christ, is bom of God. These
things have been written that you may KNOW that you
have eternal life." (I John 5:1 and 13)

Neighbors

In Proverbs 14:21 we find,
"He who despises his neighbor is
a sinner, but happy is he who is
4 kind to the poor."
As a, boy growing up in
Jacksonville, I knew all my neigh-
Oliver F. Taylor bors. Some I liked better than
Visitation Minister. First others. However, I did not despise
United Methodist Church or dislike any of my .neighbors. I.,
lived in a neighborhood where'
neighbors shared with each other. It was not uncommon'
to borrow a couple of eggs or some flour from a neighbor.
Kindness shown to the poor gives a good feeling to
the giver. Some people resent the poor. This is not the
Christian way of life. Every person should be helped to
find dignity for their life. It is easy to criticize others with-
out knowing the facts.
We often have many excuses for our shortcomings,
but do not listen to others. A Christian should always be
a good neighbor..

The 1999 session of the Flori-
da Legislature amended the' law.
which required passage of the
High School Competency Test'
(HSCT) for graduation with a
standard diploma.
The law now requires 1999
ninth grade students to pass thde"
Florida Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test (FCAT) in the tenth
grade to receive, a regular high
school diploma. Like the HSCT,
students who are not successful
on the first attempt will be given
additional opportunities to pass
the test before graduation.
While the legislature has
determined the requirement for a
standard diploma, the exact pass-
ing score has not been determined
yet. Districts have been notified


News For The Week
Submitted by Cadet Ensign
Christa Dykes, Operations Officer
As a third,year cadet and an
officer in. the Gulf County
NJTROTC Uniti, I have learned
that there is more to ROTC than
just the uniform we wear.
Although the military plays a role
in this class, that's not all we con-
centrate on.
The many studies that we do
can prepare us for other classes
such as American history, world
history, geography and govern-
ment..Thfs class can also take the
place of a basic science credit that
is required for graduation irf Gulf
County.
Many people think that ROTC
is just a military prep class, but
it's not. Although some people
join because they are planning to
enter the military, there are many
who join just to learn new things.
In ROTC we try to teach the
first year cadets self-discipline,
teamwork, patriotism, self-confi-
dence, ethics, and many' other
"useful skills that they may need
for life. We also try to tell everyone
that if they work hard, they can
achieve any goal in life that they
set for themselves.
S Most individuals think, that
iROTC is just an "in the 'books
class." Man, you are wrong. We do
a lot of outdoor activities such as
close order drill, color guard, and
_rifle routines. You may see some
of these talents displayed in
parades and at color guard cere-
monies.
Other things that we do, such
as car washe 'and trips, are also
a big part of our unit. We go on at
least three trips every year and we
usually have a lot of fun. '
As a matter of fact, we .are
planning a trip to Pensacola right
now. We will be going on this trip
in November. We are going to the
Naval Museum and also to the air
show to see the "Blue Angels" per-
for m'.
There is one other thing. that
we do, and that is we have a mili-
tary ball. This ball is a very formal
occasion for everyone, with the
ladies wearing evening gowns and
the gentlemen in their dress uni-
forms. Our military ball usually
takes place in December.
Well, now that you know a lit-
tle more about the NJROTC Unit,
you can think it over again and
consider joining. Believe me, it's
worth it! Well, until next week...

,that the, passing score will be
specified in the near future.
< The state is also designing
and implementing a statewide
FCAT instructional validity study.
The purpose of this study will be
to verify that students are being
provided.instruction in the Sun-
'shine State Standards. "
SGulf County teachers are
working very hard, to ensure that
all students are,' successful not
only on the FCAT, but in 'all
aspects of their education.
More than' -ever,; students
need to take their 'education- seri-
ously. Not only is passing the
FCAT important,, but being pre-
pared .for all, that, awaits them
after graduation is paramount to
future success. .


Young children are natural,
unselfconscious artists. As
adults, we watch them with a
mixture of'i awe, nostalgia, and
perhaps even a bit of jealousy.
Upon reflection, it is difficult
,to determine at exactly what point
we lost that,'freedoni and confi-
dence with art, and wye should
rightfully be concerned about our
children losing it too..
Children will not lose their art
if they are allowed to succeed and
have fun when they make art. Too,
often we sabotage our children's
efforts at art by making it impos-
sible for them to succeed. We
insist at an early age that they not
"scribble" or waste materials.
Sometimes we insist children
do things "better" or do them the
way we would. We worry about,
what is "normal" or if our children'
can compete with others the same
age. As for making it fun, we take
something that is naturally enjoy-
able and add constraints in the.
name of "culture" and "educa-
tion."
We need to view' art from'the
perspective of a child, It isn't
,:about "things;" the finished pro-
ject. It is about making; it is about
the act of creating. Children usu-
ally enjoy art. If your child does
not ask yourself these questions: 2"*
Am I letting my child make art
,often enough? ,
Am I letting my child make. art .
where he or she likes to be
(outdoors, with 'others,
al6ne)? '-
Am taking the fun out of making
art by forcing him or her to do
it or by insisting it be done c

Four Area Men Are


Charged Wi

You might call it a blatant dis-
regard for wildlife and the laws
that protect them, but when
wildlife officers stopped four area
men early Saturday morning,
October 2nd, on Highway 20, they
were shocked to find three deer
_crammed into the trunk of their
small car.
Lt. David Gainer, a law
enforcement area supervisor with
Sthe Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC),
stopped a Nissan. Sentra on
'Highway 20 at 2:25 a.m. near the
intersection of Highway 77 after

the occupants load something in

There are, special speakers
'each evening who talk, to the stu-
"dents about the concerns of
today's young people and how to
-face them with confidence using
principles from God's Word. "The
'Wilds" trip is' always an exciting
adventure for our students and
chaperones.
;y Faith Christian parents,
teachers, students, and friends
had a'great time-at the annual
Harvest Festival. The games were
fun, the music wonderful, the
food delicious, and the rain held
off until around 2:00 p.m.
A thank you is in order for all
who helped in any way, and a
special appreciation goes to "Mr.'
-Benny" Roberts and the men for
that scrumptious chicken, and all
the women who baked those lus-
cious goodies. We want to thank
-the city for the use of the facilities
behind the Centennial Building,
and those working with the health
fair who joined us for lunch.
October 21, will be Open

ents and students in grades one

to exit the vehicle, he saw blood,
on the bumper and clothing of
one of the men.
When they opened the trunk,
Gainer found two buck deer,
including a five-point and a spike,
and an adult doe. The four men
arrested and charged with pos-
session- of deer during the closed
season were the driver,,' Robert
Clarence Eddins, 28,' of Chipley.
Randy Lee Grissett, 32,,: Foster

If convicted, f the first degree
misdemeanor, the four can be
fined up to $1,000 each, sen-
tenced to a year in jail, and lose
all confiscated equipment, includ-
ing a vehicle, gun, or light used in
the crime.
Gainer said lots of complaints
are coming in about night hunt-
ing, and in this case the deer were
apparently killed as they fed along
Highway 20 after midnight.
He said wildlife officers will be
stepping up patrol efforts in the
coming weeks to deal with com-
plaints from the public.
Under the, PWC's, Wildlife
Alert- program,' anyone who
reports a wildlife or fish violation
is eligible to receive a cash reward
ranging from $25 to 81,000 If an
arrest is made. The amount of the
reward depends on the serious-
ness' qf the violation.

Brings Refreshment." Graeff men-
tions that Christians rejoice in the
hope of God's kingdom.
As they progress in knowl-
edge, they are safeguarded from
being caught up with worldly
philosophies and falsely called
knowledge. Most people today
devote themselves to novels, spe-
clalty magazines, science fiction,
and the Internet.
Christians may at times
become preoccupied with these
pursuits also. In contrast, how
refreshing it Is If they are
absorbed in personal and family
study of God's word, and then
apply what they have learned.
Doing this brings rich blessings
iand enables all to be better
Christians.'
All are invited and will benefit
from this encouraging program.
The program starts at 9:55, CT.
No admission will'be asked and
no collections will be taken.
