Apalachicola River' ets Help

Measures Taken To. Stop Damage and Restore Rivermine


"We're here to talk about one
of Florida's and America's great-
est rivers-the Apalachicola," said
Senator Bob Graham, as he
opened a press conference to
announce the beginning of a new


era in channel maintenanceialong
the riverway.
Counties bordering the river
have for many years questioned
the policy of depositing dredge


U.S. Congressman Allen Boyd and Senator Bob Graham


spoils along the banks, and in
some cases 'even back into the
river's edge, while maintaining a
navigable waterway.
Gulf County has led the way
in opposing the methods of
dredge spoil disposal, complain-
ing that the sand was choking the
river to death. The dredge spoil
was also blocking off sloughs and
creeks, while additionally destroy-
ing vegetation in the river
swamps.
In recent months, the "Save
Our River" group and other envi-
ronmeital groups have also taken
the torch as the Army Corps of
Engineers goes through, the
process of getting new dredging
permits from the State of Florida.
All those efforts seem to be paying
off and the Apalachicola River is
receiving the benefits.
Senator Bob 'Graham aild
Congressman Allen Boyd joined
together to announce that a new
day has come wth te with ihe Felrida
Department of Envirohmental
Protection arid the Corps' five-
year dredging permit agreement.

Bondholders and Florida
Coast Paper Company are contin-
uing to work on a plan to present
to the bankruptcy court in
Delaware. Florida Coast Paper
Company has filed for a motion to
convert from Chapter 11 reorgani-
. zaUorial ba~lnkrptcy to Chapter 7,
liquidation.

Information received shortly
before The Star's press time
Wednesday, reported of the
intent of the attorneys for
Florida Coast Paper Company's
debtors to file the plan that
afternoon with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court in Delaware.
Read further for details of
the plan as they are revealed by
the parties involved in upcoming
issues of The Star.


Bondholders have since filed
to intervene and announced they
have a deal with Florida Coast
Paper Compainy and are putting a
plan together to file with the
court.
This information was report-
ed in the October 7th edition of
The Star. Since that time, hotiies
have been sent to creditors advis-
iag'them that all claims must be
filed with the banki-iptcy court by
4:00 p.m., ET, on November 5th
(the "Bar Date") in order for
claims to be addressed by the
courts.
If claims are not flied by that
date, then creditors shall be forev-
er barred from asserting the
claims.
Bankruptcy Judge Peter J.
Walsh set the next hearing date
for November 17th at 1:30 p.m. It
is expected that sometime within
the next few days the bondhold-


hi : "
aB, i. L't-' : ,


ers' plan will be, filed with the
courts. After the filing, laid off mill
workers should get some indica-
tion as to whether the mill will
ifideed operate again.
There is no indication as to
what the plan will be, but it is
clear that bondholders will likely
do everything in their power to
protect as much of the 9165 mil-
lion worth of bonds as possible.
Bondholders do seem, to be
making every effort to protect
their, investment. Any plan might
involve the bondholders and
another third party participant, or
even Smurfit-Stfone.
The bankruptcy court will
still have. ito approve any deal
between the parties.
If the bondholders had not
intervened in the motion to con-
vert to Chapter 7 liquidation
bankruptcy, they would have like-
ly drily received pennies on the
dollar for that investment.
Workers were also notified by
Florida Coast Paper Company
that COBRA insurance coverage
rates will be taking a dramatic
Increase beginning with the
November 1 rates.


Hwy. 98 Realignment Study Meeting; Plans Revealed


"I know a lot of people think
of the St. Joe Company as an 800
pound gorilla--I don't blame you.
But we're a different St., Joe
Company now. ... We'd like to be
a part of a partnership that helps
to build the future of Gulf
County," explained Chris Corr,
Vice President of Strategy and
New Ventures for St. Joe/Arvida,
during last Thursday's -public
workshop on the companies'
study on the realignment of a sec-
tion of Highway, 98.
Just under 200, local resi-
dents of Gulf County were back at
the Port St. Joe High -School
Commons Area to hear more
about St. Joe/Arvida's plans to
realign 3.65 miles of Highway 98
:faom the Dixie Belle Curve to St.
Joe Beach and offer their input on
the proposed concept.
One hundred sixty-eight peo-
ple signed in as they entered the
Sff.i i -nl n wrrT+ cn Trh T r


were also given the opportunity to
review study data generated" to
date, realignment -options being
evaluated, and discuss the infor-
mation with representatives from
St. Joe/Arida and PBS & J engi-


neers.
Several also registered to
make a public address' on the
issue during the comment portion
-of the meeting.
During the September 30th


lvrlv 200 ne9rsnns attepndped the infnorinatwe hearing at PSJHS.


informal public workshop, the
.mood of residents was not very
good concerning the realignment
of the road.
Last Thursday's meeting was
much better organized and infor-
mative as St. Joe/Arvida, repre-
sentatives spent some time out-
lining the companies' long term
development plan.
Most local residents that
spoke voiced little objection to the
companies' plans to develop the
property but disagreed with mov-
ing the 3.65 miles of roadway.
Corr Outlines Future
Development Possibilities
Corr explained to all present
that the realignment of Highway
98 was just the first step to what
will probably eventually be a back
beach road type' project. He
acknowledged, that St. Joe, Bay
County, Gulf County, the Florida
Department of Transportation,
and Tyndall Air Force Base offi-


CLAY SMALLWOOD
cials have met to discuss the con-
cept.
Nearly every speaker during'


the meeting. expressed a desire to
see a "Back Beach Road" type
road development in order to
counter what they fear will be a
traffic bottleneck if St. Joe's
realignment plans just simply
spill traffic back to Highway 98
with the additional traffic being
addressed.
Corr said the company's long
term vision Is to develop a full
resort community with a bit of a
different twist-nature based
tourism.
This development would take
place over thq next 15 to 20 years
and will likely Include a hotel, golf
course. nature trails, horseback
riding, fishing, and other outdoor
activities focused around Gulf
County's natural amenities.
The development would uti-
lize .low density construction,
park development, and public

St. Joe Is Helping



Arrive At An Idea

For the Most Advantageous Use of

Our Presently Developable Areas
,DEVELOPMENT IS COMING TO PORT St. Joe, slowly but
surely. Several events are,"in the wind" but not quite where one
can take them to the bank, as yet.
One of these developments has to do with that tongue of prop-
erty lying on the western edge of the city and happens to be along
the waterfront. It consists of property owned by the city, the St.
Joe Corporation and various individuals. The question is how to
develop it to provide the best utilization of a valuable piece of
property.
Arriving at an answer to this question took a little bitty baby
step forward in a joint meeting by the several owners last Tuesday
evening to discuss the matter.
FOR WANT OF A STARTING point, the St. Joe Company had
a very tentative suggestion of what could be done with their prop-
erty, along with the direction of the remainder of the acreage.
Merely a suggestion, as a point to begin planning.
The surprising thing which was suggested was that the bulk
of ihe development would have to do with the public's use of it
with development being paid for with private dollars. There was a
hotel suggested for a portion of the property leased along with the
Marina, as suggested by the lease terms. A waterfront restaurant
was penciled in which would, lie due west of the marina, but the
remainder of the property was laid out for public use. Nature
walks, park landscaping, storm water runoff treatments, and
things of a recreational nature, just as it was used in the early
part of the century, but with different development schemes.
The St. Joe Company has been very helpful in their sugges-
tions, stressing the fact that their ideas they are coming forth with
are merely ideas or food for thought.
THEY HAVE STRESSED THAT THEY know this property
must b,e developed in the proper method the first time, since there
will be no more property with which we can practice until we get
it right.
We want to stress that the experience we have had with the
company has been an experience of wanting to help; wanting to do
it the way we want it done, with the understanding that the vacant
land won't continue to stand in its present condition. If it must be
developed-and it appears as if it must-then let's knock skulls
and come up with the proper method of development.



Got Your Number

A HOTLINE FOR OUR SCHOOLS is a good idea, in our way of
thinking. It's not only a good idea but it is a timely idea and
orie that fills a. need before i' is even needed. Sheriff Frank
MdKeitten has called for the help 6f state-trained experts in estab- "
lishing this hotline, to see that it is done riglit the first time. This
is something we don't need to be experimenting with.
OOur schools don't have the climate for discord that other
schools have .yet!
Our schools have yet to receive almost daily threats of bomb-
ing which some other schools have experienced or received ... yet!l'
Our schools aren't bothered with the presence of violent gangs
or hoodlums and thugs to terrorize other students. yetd
Our schools don't have the presence of the incidence of smug-
gling firearms into classes as some other schools are experiencing
.. yet!
THERE ISN'T EVEN ANY REASON to expect that any or all of
these social problems will follow, as surely as night follows day,
nor are we trying to give the students an idea of how they can be
a problem.
We're saying that it is best to be forewarned and prepared for
dealing with this type situation should it ever rear its ugly head in
our schools.
It's much like the nation's armed forces; it's best to have them
in abundance and never need them, than it is to need them and
never have them.


Hunker Down With Kes


by Kesley Colbert


October 19ths I Have Known


'The first that comes to mind,
was back in the very early 1950's.
I was four or five at the time. My
older brother hunched forward,
blew out all the candles on his
cake, leaned over to me and said;
"I just wished for some moon men
to. land out behind the barn
tonight. They're going to come
down in silver flying saucers and
have ray guns and x-ray vision and
they can jump thirty-seven feet In
the air. Don't tell Mom and Dad..
. but you get ready for some fun!"
My "wondering" about Leon
started many years ago.
'Course, I sat on a bale of hay
out back of that old barn 'til
almost nine o'clock waiting for a
light to flash across the sky. I
wanted to be there when they
stepped out of those saucers.
Leon knew about space men
and Vrapping frogs and hopping
freight trains and ghosts and


witches and marking trees and
" things like that. He was five years
older (World War II got in between
us) and sometimes he was here on
this planet with the rest of us .
and sometimes he wasn't .
I remember the birthday he
'got the beautiful red Western
Flyer. First thing he, did with that
brand new bicycle was take the
back fender off. "I don't want a
fender rubbing the tire and slow-
ing me down," he offered as an
explanation to my puzzled look.
"and besides. I want to be able to
:sling a little mud!"
Before I could ask him why h9
didn't take the front fender off. we
were down at the big ditch behind
George Sexton's house building a
ramp. As we piled up branches
and shoveled dirt over and around
them. the picture started to focus
for me ... "Leon. you can't jump
this ditch-it's forty feet to the
other side!"
We cleared a path back up the
hill. took out a small section of Mr.
Archie Moore's fence to give him
more room to build up speed, and
then I stood back in awe, shock
and with a bit of tingling anticipa-
tion as Leon started down the
"chute" toward the take-off ramp.


He flew! I'm telling you he
absolutely flew!
For about twenty feet. Then he
went another twenty feet-straight
down! To this day it Is still one of
the worst wrecks I've ever seen.
The first thing that hit bottom was
the front fender ... followed imme-
diately by Leon's nose as he dis-
mounted over the handle ,bars! I
thought it had killed him for surely
I saw he was breathing as I
pulled his face out of the mud.
"We've got to get up more speed,"
was the first thing he said, "we've
got to back further up the hill and
we've got to get the ramp a little,
higher and we've got to lighten the
load. You are going to have to ndel"
"Don't worry, he added as he
pushed me and the bike down the
hill toward the new and improved
ramp, "if you don't make it the
front fender will break your fall."
Yeah. I remember some
October 19ths all right!
One year he got a Red Ryder
BB gun. We spent the whole day
shooting at some interesting "tar-
gets." The bulls eye nailed to the
barn door didn't hold him long. he
wanted a moving challenge. so I
had to run by the fence pulling a


wagon with a wooden block:K'
wedged into the bed. He didn't hit
the two by four one time. .but he
got me in the leg. the back. the'
shoulder .
He received a Gilbert Chemis-'"
tr. Set one year. and naturally, he
went to making gunpowder right.'-
off. We blew up 'army men, base-
ball cards, 'a lamp . he set the',',
bedroom on fire. He'd mix a few of'
those crystals, and some of the
white powdery stuff in a coke-cola
and have me, drink it.., He said it '
might make me .stronger .... and,
it couldn't hurt my looks any. I',
For his fifteenth birthday hie'
put in for a motorcycle. Listen. I
told Mother and Daddy and Dad David
Mark if he got a motorcycle I was .
moving to Timbuktu or the Sahara.'.
Desert or someplace where they
didn't have ditches!
One year he decided he "want-
ed" the red light off of Chief Aaron
Pinson's police car. I don't thunk he
told our parents about this wish.
Nicky Joe and Jackie came over,_
enjoyed some cake and ice cream,.
and the three of them went "cruis--
ing.
I don't know all the details, but"-

IT REMINDS ME of a book I
read recently, entitled, Fat, Dumb
and Happy Down In Georgia writ-
ten by a columnist of the Macon
Telegraph, Bill Boyd. ,
The book is just a collection
of columns written by Boyd about
different subjects. He writes,
mostly, about people; especially
old 'people. He e has a section
about people who have lived to be
100, the most patriotic people he
has ever known, the greatest
achievers he. has known, the
Marines, and of course; his fami- ,
ly '
One person featured in his
section devoted to great achievers


is John Joshua Beasley. -
Jqhn Joshua Beasley is the
most prolific father Bill Boyd has
ever run across. He has fathered
40 children!
That's no typo. 40 children!
Bill Boyd, himself, is the
ninth of 18 children. That's what,
attracted him to John' Joshua
Beasley. .
He not only perpetuated his
laborers on his farm, but he did
his part in reaching. this six bil-
lion persons on earth'.

A WOMAN SOLICITED
Boyd's help in publicising a


OLD BILL BOYD originated
from the same place I did, in the
central portion of northeastern
Oklahoma. He went through the
dust bowl. The migrations. The
hard times [or, so* people told
him].
He ate wild "poke" greens and
cornbread to keep from starving
to death, and thought he had
plenty; just because his belly was
full. ,
He joined the U. S.' Marines
,i, when. he was 18 years of age and
'experienced the first indoor "out-
,.house" of his life. I had to move to
Florida to get' that revelation.
The Macon Telegraph hired

TWIS EVENT OF six billion

fits right in with my reading, late-

reading has to do with pioneer
families and situations, which
tended to produce larger families.
One of the situations I have
read about, Is; .it has taken the
world less than 50 years to dou-
ble its population after taking
from the beginning of mankind to
reach 'three billion. In other
words, the population growth has
sort' of speeded up!

with the community to provide
beach access, and that the future
development will be off the beach.
He also explained that the
development offered tremendous
opportunities for new quality jobs
in -the community, as well as
additional revenues for Gulf
County through increased prop-
erty values within the developed
area.
"We're trying to develop a suc-
cessful project for the St. Joe
Company and Gulf County-a
win-win situation for both," he
said.
Corr explained that it would
be "ridiculous" for them to do any
development that would hurt the

Asks If FWCC Is "Above the Law?"


Last Thursday I attended the
Florida Wildlife Conservation
Commission meeting in St.
Petersburg. The commission was
once, again establishing the cor-
rect measurement of a cast net,
because, as the staff attorneys
said, "We are losing the cases in
court and there are too many civil
suits filed against us."
Why are these learned com-'
missioners losing in court and
being sued by individual citizens?
I think I can answer that ques-
tion. It is because this commis-
sion thinks it can force the citi-
zens of Florida to use nets less
than 500-sq. ft. even though the
Florida Supreme Court and the
Florida Constitution and 72% of
the voters give the citizens two
500-sq. ft. cast nets.
The chilling part of this com-
nmission is the statement one of
the commissioners said and sev-
eral other commissioners nodded
in agreement, paraphrasing, "This
commission can pass any rule
that we want to because we do not
have to be subjected to legislative
law." In other words they are
above the law. Some of the staff


members have told'us that they
can do what ever they want to and
nobody.can do anything about it.
.1I want to put this commission and
staff of notice, as long as God lets
me live, I will not be subjected to
this kind of tyranny without using
all legal means to stop them in
their tracks.
This commission wants to
limit all cast nets to 350-sq. ft. for
no reason what-so-ever.
If this commission can do this
to the fishermen they can also
control the hunters. As a matter
of fact the commission passed
new hunting rules and regula-
tions even though the purpose
and cause was; just because.
Hunters, fishermen, you had
better start taking notice of this.
power hungry group! This com-
mission thinks they are above the
law. Has the voters in Florida cre-
ated a monster or have the envi-
ronmental PETA, Fund for
Animals, Florida Wildlife,
Federation and Earth Justice peo-
ple took control of these people?

ability for our drivers making sure
our children are safely transport-
ed.
As a driver for Gulf Public
Transportation, Shelia transports
those persons who can't transport
themselves and are dependent
upon others for transportation.
This type of transportation,-she
explained, is to obtain access to
health care, employment, educa-
tion shopping, or medically neces-
sary br life-sustaining activities.
Shelia also explained to the
students some of the rules as a
driver that she has to abide by as
well as the rules of the passengers
being transported.
She-noya should be proud of
her mom and the role she plays as
a bus and van driver. Everyone'
should be very proud of the dri-
vers who are involved in the
transportation of the people in
Gulf County. This is a very impor-
tant role in the community.

Meets to Plan Upcoming Events


The Sea Oats and Dunes

Margaret Whitney-Smith presid-
ing. Jane Kleeb gave the devotion
and the pledge of allegiance was
led by Vesta Conley.
The president announced that
the Christmas luncheon would be
held December 14th at the Fish


October is. the "IDD
Worldwide Service Project Month"
for, ,Kiwanis International.
Thursday, October 21, is "IDD
Day." IDD stands' fr iodine defi-
ciency disorder. Iodine deficiency
disorder is a lack of iodine inthe
body.
Iodine enables the thyroid.
glands to develop and maintain
the brain and nervous -system.
The thyroid gland secretes a hor-
mone that controls metabolism.
Metabolism 'helps maintain and
repair tissue. It helps maintain
the body's' temperature. The
major hormone Is thyroxine '
which is an ammo acid that is
released into the bloodstream.
Iodine deficiency affects the
heart, liver, kidney, muscles, and
the endocrine system. The result
can be mental and physical retar-
dation. It causes cretinism, or
becoming deaf, reproductive fail-
ures, impaired motor functions,-
still births, and infant deaths. The


most recognizable effect of iodine
deficiency is a goiter.
Thirty percent of the world is
threatened by IDD. This is nearly
1.5 billion people. Seven hundred
fifty million of these people are
children and 500 million are
under the age-of six.
People affected by IDD live in
one of. two regions. The first is,
near areas that flood. Iodine is in
the 'soil, but the flooding causes
the iodine to be removed.
S The second area is in moun-
tainous regions. Iodine is found in
salt water, so it can be obtained
through seafood. People.in moun-
tainous regions are unable to get
the seafood. so they lack the
Iodine they need.
IDD can be prevented with a
small dose of iodized. salt. One
teaspoon will last a lifetime. This
Is less than one grain of salt and
smaller than the head of a pin
daily. Iodized salt is the only cure
for IDD.

DCA Providing 400

Free Home Inspections

To Gulf & Washington County Residents


,The Florida Department of.
'Community Affairs is bringing its
Residential Construction Mitiga-
tion, Program to Gulf and
Washington counties., Homeown-
ers in the area are all eligible to'
receive a free wind-resistant home
inspection on a first-come, first-
Sserve basis; .
The first 400' inspections are
FREE, a service valued at $500.
Interested homeowners should
call the Department of
Community Affairs toll free at
(877) FLA-3222, ,
Data collected from these
inspections will tell homeowners
how well their homes will with-
stand the effects of hurricanes or
other high-wind events. It will
also provide specific instructions
and steps homeowners should
take to strengthen their homes.
Some of these steps include
installing hurricane sh u tters,
bracing the gable end, and
installing hurricane straps.
Homeowners who wish to


upgrade their homes based on
these inspections can also apply
for an unsecured loan for up to
$20,000 through the Project
Impact Prevention Loan Program.,
This loan is being made avail-
able through a unique partner-
ship between the Department of
Community Affairs, the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
and Fannie Mae, the. largest
source of home mortgages.


A proposal to sponsor a "Yard
of the Month" award was dis-
cussed. This contest will be held
between March and September.
Residents of St, Joe Beach,
Overstreet, Mexico Beach, and
Beacon Hill may participate.
Mary Hendricks, a member of
the garden club, gave a very inter-
esting program on camellias
which originally come'from China'
and Japan. They are related to the
tea family and their closest rela-
tive is the tea plant. There are:.-
about 10 species.
Contrary to popular belief,
camellias are easy to grow and
require very little maintenanceo. ,
They like acid soil which is preva-
lent in this area. She suggested
that after a heavy fog camellias be
hosed off to remove the salt spray.
The blooming season begins in-'
December.' I '. :
Refreshments were served by
hostesses Flora Brown, Netta
Niblack, and Charlene Hargraves.
The next meeting will be held
'November 9th. Hostesses will be'
Helen LaPlante, .Jeah Heathcock.-
and Alice, Kunel.

Today, over 97 million credit union members
around the world will celebrate International
Credit Union Day. These not-for-profit financial
cooperatives are member-owned and each mem-
ber has an equal say in how the credit union is
run. There are no stockholders at credit unions,
and earnings are returned to members in the
form of lower rates on loans and higher rates on
savings, or invested back in the credit union to
provide more services members need and want.

We invite you to come celebrate the credit
union difference on Thursday, October 21, for
refreshments and a gift at one of our locations
in Port St. Joe, Mexico Beach or Wewahitchka.

RED RIBBON WEEK:
REMEMBRANCE OF ENRIQUE
CAMARENA
Enrique Camarena was a
D.E.A. (Drug Enforcement
Administration) agent "working
undercover in Mexico, living
among the drug lords, gathering
information and evidence against
them.
When his work was almost
-completed, they learned his true
identity. Camarena was kid-
napped, tortured, and finally
killed. After a month, his body
'was found and returned to his,
family.
To. honor Camarena, his fam-
ily and friends wore red ribbons.
As his story' spread across the,
country, others began to wear rib-
hons, too ,- .
Now every year, millions of'
Americans celebrate "Red Ribbon
Week"-October' 23rd to 31st-to
remember Enrique Camarena and
to take a stand as he did against
illegal drugs. Enrique set an
example for us all.
"Red Ribbon Week" offers you
,an opportunity to present chil-
dren with one of the most impor-
tant messages 'they will ever
receive-that theyhave the choice
to live a drug free life. Let us all do
our part to get the message to
them!

Too TIPSY To TRAVEL
On Sunday, October 17th,
deputies were flagged down in the
Wewahitchka area and given the
description of a black pick-up
truck that appeared to be driven
by a drunken driver.
The vehicle was later located
on Highway 22 as it pulled into a
local business. The truck. struck
another vehicle as it attempted to
park, causing minor damage..
Deputy Chris Dixon got the
driver out of the vehicle and had,
him attempt several sobriety
assessments. The driver, William
Holden, 'of Wewahitchka, was
arrested and taken to the Gulf
County Jail for driving under the
influence.
At the jail, Holden, 34, took a
breath test to determine his blood
alcohol level; the result was that
of nearly three times the legal
limit.
FREE GAS DIDN'T GET HIM FAR
On Monday, October 18th,
Deputy Butler was looking for the
driver of a vehicle that had left a
Wewahitchka convenience store'
without paying for gas that he
had gotten.
He noticed a car, similar in
description to the suspect vehicle,:
on Highway 71 near the Stone
Mill Creek Road and' proceeded to
stop it. The driver of the vehicle
was not the one who had gotten
the gas, but Michael Yarell did not
possess a valid driver's license.

ving with a suspended or revoked

the spoils would be removed, and
even where they would be placed.
are not yet finalized. Ultimately, it
is hoped that the sand might be
used for some worthwhile project,
such as possible beach renour-
ishmenit or other such needs.
Congressman Boyd outlined
the complexities of the issues as
ecological, environmental, recre-
ational, and commercial uses of
the river compete for right to the
waterway. He said some of the
past policies did not seem to
make sense, as piles of dredge.
spoil were deposited along the
river then bulldozed back into the
waterway several months later.
Boyd pointed out that the real
issue of the future might be how
much water flows from Georgia
and Alabama waterways. The
Apalachicola River readings were
just over one foot early this week.
.and -negotiations are under way
by the State of Florida to insure a
minimum water flow from upland
waterways.
"We all know we've got to have
water. This is a very complex
issue." pointed out Boyd.
Senator Graham also noted,
"If there Is one thing that's going
to bring everybody together on
this Issue, it Is saving the
Apalachicola River." He said there


was still much work to be done
and voiced his commitment to
continue the light for the river.
There also seems to be some
questions being posed about de-

L. L. Lanier came bearing gifts,,.
of tupelo honey, world famous
and unique to this area. One of
the recent problems along the
Apalachicola River waterway -is-
destrucuon of vegetation, particu-
larly tupelo trees.
"We've got to resolve our dif

$11, 684 Given to Maintain Gulf Beaches
Gulf County's tourist development tax is already paying big dividends for tourist development
projects in the communities. During the last meeting of the' Gulf County Commission, TDC
Chairman Tommy'Knox presented County Commission Chairman Billy Traylor with a check for
$11,684 for beach maintenance.
The tourist development tax has far exceeded expectations, bringing in $77,163,09 through
July of this year. Funds have been contributed to help with the City of Wewahitchka Flathead
Catfish Tournament, SLAM ,Fishing Tournament, Monumental Music program, and the
Florida/Georgia Bass Fishing Tournament at White City.
Funds can only be used for tourist development projects, and have already proven to be a real
shot in the arm for the county.

In treating you for gum dis-

other dental work in addition to
gum disease treatment.
A higher gumline on your front

National School Bus Safety Week


School buses carry our most
precious cargo. School bus drivers
in Florida have the safest buses
possible to do a very demanding
job. They are trained and have the
unique opportunity to transport
very special children. They are the
best in the nation.
Once again, it is time to cele-
brate National School Bus Safety
Week, October 17 to 23. Trans-
portation departments across the
state are experts at producing
some of the safest drivers in the
nation. The entire transportation

County Commissioners Receive


Award From Gulf Tobacco Program


At the Board of County
Commissioners' meeting on
Tuesday, October 12, commis-
sioners received an award pre-
sented by the Tobacco-Free
Partnership of Gulf County,
Students Working Against
Tobacco and the Gulf County
Health Department "in recogni-
tion of their dedication and out-
standing work in the fight to save
a generation of Floridians from an
addiction that kills."
Tobacco Prevention Coordina-
tor Sabrina Burke stated, "On
April 8, 1997, you passed an ordi-
nance prohibiting the use and
possession of tobacco products by
minors. This ordinance was
passed locally before any state
laws existed, and the local ordi-
nance is much more stringent
than the state laws that were sub-
sequently passed.
We are very proud of that...
in fact, any opportunity I get at
meetings in Tallahassee and
across the state, I certainly let
them know that we know how to

Illegal Catches Throw
Black Cloud Over the
Shrimping Industry
Officers from the Fish and
Wildlife Commission, Marine
Division have been 'busy recently
working the commercial shrimp-
ing fleet. Numerous violations
were. observed in reference to
undersized shrimp and illegal
nets.
On September 28, Officer
Gary Tolbert cited Trieu Quoc
Tran of Panama City for posses-
sion of undersized shrimp; 410
pounds of illegal shrimp was
seized. The average count was 72
shrimp per pound,.with heads on.
The legal count is 47.shrimp per
pound, with heads.
On September 29, Officer
Richard Bryant cited James Craig
Tarr of Panama City for posses-
sion of undersized shrimp; 266
pounds of illegal shrimp was
seized. The average count was 72
shrimp per pound, with heads on.
On September 29, Officers
aboard the FWCC vessel "J.J.
Brown" cited Hein Nvan Ngo of
Panama City. In the arrest, 2,000
pounds of illegal shrimp'were
seized along with five illegal nets.
He was charged with the fol-
lowing violations: nets over 66 feet
perimeter; nets over 500 square
feet; using more than two uncon-
nected trawls; use of a- try-net
with two other trawls; and non-
functional B.R.D. (bycatch reduc-
tion device).
Most of the violations were
flagrant in nature. The fact that
the undersized shrimp were so
small and the quantity and size .of
the illegal nets was so great is very
discouraging.
Any information concerning
illegal shrimping activity in Bay
and Gulf' counties should be
reported to Lt. Jay Chesser at
(850) 233-5150, extension 106.


handle things in Gulf County."
Upon receipt of the award,
Chairman Billy Traylor comment-
ed, "I know as I came on the
board nine years ago, people were
still smoking in the courthouse.
Myself and Mr. Peters, who was
chairman at that time, instituted
a policy against smoking in the
courthouse.. we are very proud
of that.


But, what we are more proud
of are these kids right here com-
ing out and saying 'we are against
tobacco, we are against smoking'.,
S.. these kids right here are going
to demonstrate in our community
what they are really of, and this is
the part that I hope the other kids
will follow." "
As a sidenote, Doug Kent.

S embarrassing situation with our sin, we have
a toedency to identify someone else as the cause of, it.
Moses was up on Mount Sinai receiving the Ten'
Commandments. The people. on their way from Egypt,
begged Aaron to make them "gods" which they would
worship. Aaron asked for their gold jewelry, and fash-
ioned a golden calf from the trinkets. (Exodus 32)
When Moses came down from the mountain, he
saw what had happened, and he was extremely angry.
He destroyed the golden calf god. Aaron sort of ied
about his part in this. He said he placed the gold in the .
fire, and "there came out this calf." Aaron had made the
calf, but he wanted it to appear it just happened. Does
this sound like some of our excuses?
In Genesis 3:12, After God discovers Adam and
Eve's sin, Adam tells the Lord "It's not my fault, Lord.
The woman you gave me did it." Our sinful acts arel
always someone else's fault. When God confronted
Eve, she blamed Satan (the serpent).
Even the government is getting into the act in this
"enlightened" age. Children, and yes, even adult crim-
inals, are allowed to blame their parents or early
childhood environment for their present wrongdoings.
Circumstances, someone else, nor even Satan can
ever make us do wrong, unless we allow it. We. do
wrong because this old flesh wants to do it, not be-
cause of the influence of someone else.
God has planted His law in 'every Christian's heart,
along with His Holy Spirit. We always have that inier
voice telling us whether any action we are about to
take, will be in violation of God's will. Satan whispers-,
in our ear, and plants the thought in our mind, "I don't
see anything wrong with .that! But we always KNOW
the truth! We should never try to blame someone or
something else for our willing transgressions.-
God cautions us in II Corinthians 10:3-5, to fight
temptation with Spiritual weapons, 'God's Word. We
can pull down Satan's strong-holds, and get rid of the.
imaginations he plants in our minds.TV's Flip Wilson
always blamed Satan. "The devil made me do it!" He
really didn't, however. Our will is Satan's only power.


Please pray for Bro. Adams. He is recovering at Health South
in Panama City due to a stroke he suffered on October 5th.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1999


, From the Staff and Students at




SGulf County's


Elementary, Middle and High School Education Facilities


I certainly hope you have
been enjoying the contributions of
our talented and enthusiastic
seniors over the past few weeks.
Thanks for your efforts, guys!
We are rejoicing this week
over a number of things. I hope
my few and simple words may
convey the atmosphere that we
are developing and appreciating
these days.
First, congratulations are .in
order for Gulf County's Teacher of
the Year, Terry Stryker. Mr.
Stryker was just named to the
third team of USA Today's All-
American Teachers. We are
proud of you, Stryke!
By the way, the Gator Sound,
under the direction of Mr. Stryker,
will be in competition this'
Saturday in Bay County. The
band will be trying to enhance its
reputation as the state's top small
school band.
Speaking of teachers' awards,
we also congratulate Elaine
Layton and Don Rich for being
named as our 'Teachers of the
Month." Their "beyond-the-call-
of-duty" efforts earned them this
distinction.
The Gators are making great,
progress in the athletic arena
lately. The football team beat
Hurricane Irene and Ocala-St.
John last week to move to 5-1 for
the season. Liberty County is
next!
Meanwhile, the cross county
team continues to improve as it
took second place at the rugged
Niceville Invitational. Many run-
ners established "personal bests."
Just think what will happen when
they reach their potential!
The volleyball team has made
great strides and is' pointing to a
high seeding in district play next
week. And the golf team winds up
its inaugural season this week
with many players shooting their
best scores recently.
The first grading period is
now history. Early returns indi-
cate that our students are doing a
great job in the classroom, too. No
doubt the inspirational efforts of
our teachers are making an
impact every day.
Parents, report cards can be
picked up at the school all day on
Tuesday, October 26th. Your
annual school survey can also be
filled out at that time.


y" Rod Giveas


1999-2000
Attention, parents! You have
five school days to turn in a note
to the front office for any absence
your child may have had.
There is now a new school
safety hotline which students can
call and remain anonymous. The
number is toll-free 1-877-723-
2728. This hotline .is county-wide.
Our county is only the sixth coun-
ty to start a safety hotline to this
point.
Open House will be held on
October 26th from 6 p.m. to 7:30
p.m. in ,the Port St. Joe' High
School Commons Area. All parents
and students are encouraged to
attend. See you there!
In sports news, the Port St.
Joe Sharks' football team will play
at home against Apalachicola on
Friday, October 22nd. The Sharks
are on a three-game tear, and look
to have a big game on Friday.
Good luck, Sharks!
The J.V. football team played
its final game in Tallahassee last
ThIursday versus North Florida
Christian. However, it suffered a
; 21-0 loss. The Sharks finished the
season with a 2-4 record. Good
P'ob. Sharks!
The boys' golf team played
Monday at Bay Point Country
Club. The girls' golf team played
Tuesday at St. Joseph Bay
Country Club.
The boys' and girls' cross
country teams will participate in,,
the Panhandle Championships on
Saturday, October 23rd, in
Marianna.
In Lady Sharks' volleyball, the


girls played Friday against Liberty
County in a district game.
However, the girls were defeated in
the games to decide the number
one seed in the district. The team
will play the Gulf County Sheriffs
Department on Thursday. There
will be a one dollar fee to enter for
. students.
The ACT will be given on'
October 23rd at,Port St. Joe High.
The -new nine week period
began on October 13th.
Seniors! See Mrs. Ramsey in
guidance regarding three scholar-
ship possibilities for seniors who
have performed community ser-
vice.
Congratulations to Clay
Smallwood and Erica Alles for
being selected as the Buffalo Rock
Channel 7 "Students of the Week."
I. have chosen Mrs. Susan
Gannon as the "Teacher of the
Week." She grew up in Northeast
Peckville, Pennsylvania. She grad-
uated Bishop Hannon High.School
in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Afterwards, she graduated from
Mansville University in Mansville.
Pennrsylvania.
She received her Master's
Degree ,at the University of South
Florida. Mrs. Gannon started
teaching in 1976 at Crystal River
Middle School. She has been
teaching for twen ty- four years.
Mrs. Gannon teaches math
such as algebra and geometry. She
is married and has two kids. She
enjoys going to sports events and.
watching students participate.
However, I appreciate her great
ability to teach.


Do you read to your children?,
It's probably the most important,
way to prepare your young .chil-,,,
dren for all later learning experi-1
ences. We encourage parents to
begin the practice of reading
aloud to and with their children
as soon as you can prop them in'
your lap and hold a book in front
of them.
I My little four-month old
granddaughter 'is learning to-
sequence from left to right as she
follows my finger while I point out.
pictures in a book. She will sit
still and watch as long as I have,
patience and time.
Here are a few ideas to make,
story time fun and exciting. With
very young children, don't read all
the words; tell the story as you go,,
"Act out" the parts with different,
voices and accents. Leave out,
lengthy descriptive passages; per-,
'haps using the pictures to
describe the scene.
Sometimes substitute your ,,
child's name for one of the char-
acters, and stop to discuss the
story as it moves along, letting'
your child ask questions and join
in the storytelling.
As your child begins to learn
to read, encourage him to follow
along and read a! word or two;
later, take turns reading a page, a
paragraph or a sentence. This
especially helps with reading
assignments when the student
needs encouragement.
Whatever your child's age or
ability, ask questions and review
the story when you finish.
Probably the most important "tip"
"I can leave with you is "take the
time to 'read to your
children!" You both will-reap
many benefits. .


Next week is one of the high-
lights of the year: Homecoming
1999. Let me try to review the
many activities of the week in a
condensed form. If you have any
questions about homecoming or
any other school event, the school

Also, our leadership class is
working with the local cable chan-
nel to bring you updated informa-
tion on Channel 8. With thanks to
our technology class, very soon
we should be on the Internet with
our own updated website.
