PSJ Stands to Lose $Million$


Bankruptcy Plan Could Only Pay a Small Portion of Nearly $5 Million on WWTP Operations


The tripartite agreement
between the City of Port St. Joe,
Arizona Chemical, and the paper
mill owners has been a match
made in heaven since the city
wastewater treatment plant was
built in 1973.
Funds to pay for construction
bonds and the operation of the


plant have been divided propor-
tionately since that date, The mill
has historically paid approxi-
mately 97% of those fees. while
the City of Port St. Joe and
Arizona Chemical paid the
remainder as very minor contrib-
utors to the total flow.
Over the last few years,.

Florida Coast Paper Company has
gotten behind on those payments.
City Attorney Billy Joe Rish told
commissioners during Tuesday's
regular meeting that City Clerk
'Pauline Pendarvis' has. listed
claims against Florida Coast
IPaper Company to be filed by the
November 5th deadline in bank-
ruptcy court In Delaware.
Pendarvis' figures reflect pre-
petition (prior to filing bankrupt
cy) claims at $2,842,246.39 and
ipost-petition (after filing) claims
,at 8$1.995,51I1.12':,iIn. additional
fees owed which include utilities
of S3,524. interest, penalties. and
attorney's fees. These figures add
iup to. well over 84.8 million dol-
Ilars in unsecured debt.
Rish told the board that he
thought he had been successful
in, having some of the claims
upgraded to a higher category.
but aid, "If we fight to try to
upgrade our claim, we are going
to,have to hire someone up there
(Federal Bankruptcy Court in
'Delaware) to argue, our case," he
said.
In Stone Container's plan to
purchase the rnill and forestall
.Chapter 7 reorganizational bank-
.ruptey, iit has proposed to pay
$1.:6"million or 10e per dollar of
4 the' allowed debt to unsecured
creditors.
Rish is attempting to have the
unsecured city claim changed to
an unsecured priority claim. The
priority claim would be paid at a
higher rate than the 10e on the"
dollar offered under Stone
Container's plan.
"You won't be happy when we
get'through.-but you will be hap-
pier than you were going to be, if
we can get the claims upgraded."

All tax money owed to the City

The Star

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1999


Cong. Boyd,



You Did Us Good!

Your Personal Attention to Our

Problems is Very Much Appreciated
WE HAVE NO QUALMS OVER THE federal government mak-
ing changes in our ability to cover Gulf County property with flood
insurance ... IF... they apply the same rules and regulations to
every other place they make flood insurance available. L
Flood insurance, you know, requires property owners to jump 'an
through certain hoops and meet certain requirements, even before 'A
property may be considered for the coverage. These' requirements ine x
aren't simple ones either. In fact, they are quite intense, requiring jourr
placing the bottom floor of a structure so many feet above the I
mean high water mark, 'adhering to certain structural require- n't g
ments, not building in certain areas, etc. al ofy
In other words, remove all the liability possible before you put deper
up a structure you wish covered by flood insurance. enou
FEMA was attempting to change the rules on us Imostly, just
us] in the middle of the game. This is the reason for the big objec-
tion from our people.
CALLING ON OUR REPRESENTATIVE seemed to be thing to
do at the time. As it turned out, it WAS the thing to do.
Congressman Boyd has stepped in where he has been needed
on the different occasions we needed him and served us well. You i
could almost say we have a personal representative in the federal
government, in Congressan Boyd. He has been as accessible to
our people as we would expect our state representative to be.
The Congressman has not only been accessible, but, he has
also been effective in the things he has been asked to help us out
with'. In the case of our vendetta with FEMA, Congressman Boyd
was successful in having their decision revisited and any decision
toward changing the requirements made public before they are
implemented.
This was done not only for us, but, for others affected as well,
so that, in effect, all parts of the country affected by FEMA rules
and regulations are working from the same page.
WE DON'T WISH FOR ANY SPECIAL treatment when it
comes to something as important as flood insurance, Nor. do we
wish to be treated as "step-children" to the rest of the nation.
Whatever is required of the remainder of the nation, should also
be required of us.
Don't go around making up certain rules and regulations just
for a certain portion of the nation to follow and exempt other areas
with the same problems.



At-Large Voting

,,,S,49WE ARE FINALLY GOING TO address the matter of at-
large voting as opposed to single-member voting districts, as-the
great majority of the county voters expressed themselves just a
few years back. In all fairness, the majority of the voters have
never been in favor of the single-member voting method. but we
have experimented with it for a number of years to mollify the I
thoughts of our minority.
But, after several years of trying the single-member method.
we are beginning to have second thoughts.
It doesn't seem right to be governed by someone each of us as
individuals didn't have a voice in placing or excluding from office.
Nor,'does it seem the proper thing to do to have that indidual
spend the tax money all of us pay into the tax coffers.
IT WAS A NOBLE EXPERIMENT and one we wouldn't have
riot to happen, but. it is time to set matters straight.
There is no reason for it to cost our county hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars, either. One man. one vote is expressed in the
constitution as being the proper method to be governed.
We have no qualms toward guaranteeing the minority a voice
on any governing body. but not to arrange that governing body in
such a manner as to violate the rights of each and every citizen
who lives in the county and pays taxes.
Each of us should receive the same representation from even'
vote which is cast. With the single-member district. we can't.


SHunker Down With Kes by Kesley Colbert'


Rock of Age


Listen, I've'been to the cleft "..I
.d back ."
md you can't possibly imag-'
what I went through on the
ieyl .
t's rather personal and I was-
)ing to share it. .but sever-
you were kind (or diabolical-
nding on your persuasion)
gh to ask.


The final chapter started in
Charleston. South Carolina. MI\
wife had been planning a Civil War
tour of Charleston for 10 years.
She wasn't about to let a little ole
kidney stone-especially mine--
deter us from making the trip. She
even had conspirators planted in
Charleston! NMarkus, Patrick, .and'
Bret. and the old couple that live
with them. had been inviting us to0
"their city" for years.
"Cathy, I'm not sure-' ,
"Nonsense! You've been
promising me a long weekend in
Charleston forever, andE now is the.,
perfect time for me. Just think of
the old southern -homes, the


Confederate history. Rainbow Row.
Sullivan's Island. Fort Sumter ."
Here's what little I can remem-
ber. Bret and Markus both beat me
at tabletop football nght before I
passed out for the rest of the after-
noon. I missed most of day one.
Linfortunately, I woke.. up the
next morning They have a lot of ,
cobblestone streets in Charleston
and .I don't recommend the "one
and only authentic old time horse
drawn carnage ride" on a full
stomach or a leaded kidney.,
Naturally, we had to take the.
walking tour of the old city. That's
the two and a half hour walking
tour! And,, naturally, we drew the


hs

most knowledgeable and talking-
est guide in all of Charleston.: He-
knew the story behind every
house, every federal building,.
every street corner. every privy .. .
and. naturally, he felt it his civie:
duty to expound fully on every-do:
and uttle we encountered!
Folks,, you have to get on'a
boat to get out to Fort Sumter! It's
fite : miles from land, and.
Hurricane Irene arrived in the bar-.
bor at about the same time we did!'
Captain Ahab said it was as rough:
as he'd seen the seas since the big
storm of '48, ,thought he was
going to lash us to the mast at any
second. And the "rock" spent the
trip playing pinball with my stom-
ach, liver, lungs, sacroiliac.... .
We get out to the fort and :1'
can't even listen to the park
ranger. All I can see is giant cant-,
non balls stacked everywhere!
If someone asked me "How.-f
spent my vacation?" That's easy,'
mostly on the floor, on the deck. on
my hands and knees --,
-We cut out trip a day short.''ID
hate it that Cathy didn't make it top
Boone Hall .Plantation or dtie
Citadel.
Folks, I can not describe the
five hundred mile trip home,- .4
vowed a thousand times to never
get sick again away from the
house. We stopped pretty often -for
me to roll over, throw up, go to the
bathroom, or,to see if I was still liv,
ing -,-.
One "rest area" had been
taken over by an aging female
cross-country bicycling, group.
They had commandeered the
men's restroom and were lined tip
six deep in front of both bathroom
doors They kinda cleared a
path for me after I ripped off a cpu-
ple of those fluorescent orangejer-;
seys and chewed up a styrofoamj
safety helmet .. ,
We never inade it to the house.
We drove directly to the hospital.
The first doctor in the emergency
room must'a been a left kidney
specialist, as all he did was give me
a shot for the pain tfor inch 0am
eternally grateful). iand sent.fo-y
accomplice, which I assumed was
better versed in right side kidney
stones.
I know it's. all highly special-
ized now.
After .another series of tests
and x-rays and poking and prod-
ding and my first ever night in the
hospital, the doc announced, "Mr.
Colbert, your stone is bigger than
we first realized. It's a full six mil-.
limeters." .i
"Doc, talk American, don'tigive;
,me that European mumbo-i
jumbo--how many, feet across -isj
it?" ,., .. .:
"It's 'big enough' that we're'
going to have to go4fi there and geti
it. It's a simple procedure.7 ,'
Yeah, right! It's a simple iprade-
dure when 'it's someone 'else's
body you're slicing; dicing, muti-
lat(ing. '

Another World Series Has Passed Us By and Our Team Lost


I'M SORT OF SLEEPY this
Thursday morning. After staving
with all the World Series games
until the bitter end and eventually
losing them all. I have a right to be
drowsy.
The Atlanta Braves didn't put
up much of a light to win the world
championship. Their home run
hitters were exceeding quiet! The
complete last game went without a
single homer being hit-by a Brave.,
The Braves have attributed
their success all season to:the
timely homer at-some point during
the'gam'e. If it wasn't Chipper, it
was Brian. If it wasn't Ryan it was
Brett. If it wasn't Andruw it. was
Eddie. If it wasn't .Gerald it was.
even John! -
You get the picture;, it could be
any of them at any given time ...
except during the series. :

I STAYED UP for four nights
until 12:00, watching that dumb
series, expecting thunder, and


lightning to strike. at any given
moment. ,, '
S But,- it never, didl '
I, thought they were going to
win the third game and even start-
ed making preparations to go to'
bed when the seventh inning was
over. Then the roof fell, in .on'
SGlayin, who was just recovering
'from a stomach virus. Bobby Cox
tried to stretch him too far and he
got stung.
Any one of the regular season
games would have seen Glavin sit-
ting on the bench when the eighth
inning started;, not ..trying to
stretch an outing beyond any he
had, experienced during the regu-


lar season.

I'MGLAD I didn't waste my
time and money trying to see my
first World Series game in person
'this year, Although I have never
been to one, I don't think this
would have been the year to have
S gone ...-....
S The year to go will be the year
the Braves win in' four games,
straight. -
SI remember they won series
'games during the olddays; that is,
the days of Warren Spahn and Lew
Burdette. Those two did it with
pitching! There was never, any
doubt but what they would win


games they pitched.
It was a pleasure to follow the
BraV'es dunng those years. It's
more of an adventure to follow
them now. One never knows.
belcorehand. how the game will
turn out.
The Braves have changed!
All teams have changed!
I find it, difficult to get overly
excited over 18 multi-millionaires
getting their pants er, excuse
me uniforms ... dirty with a
suicide slide into a base. There's
something which gets lost in the
translation of that equation.
Multi-millionaires aren't sup-
posed to get dirty! They're sup-
posed'to have somebody hired to
get dirty for them. ..

:I WAS AMUSED over the flap
caused by sportscaster Jim Grey
and, his attempted interview of
Pete Rose Sunday night as the
series attempted .to honor, the
team of the century.


Grey asked Rose-straight
out-if he didn't want to apologize
to the baseball public for any part
he had played in the gambling
activity which had resulted in his
IRosel being banned from base-
ball.
Rose expressed indignation
over Gray even suggesting such a
question at such an event as was
being aired at that time. Grey
explained that the public probably
wished to know what he was even
doing there, what with his banned
status, and all.
Rose wound .the conversation
around to make Grey-not
Rose-the heavy in the matter, as
he has always done. Everyone is to
Blame for his troubles except Rose.,
himself .
Rose strutted and preened
before the TV audience when he
was introduced, just as if nothing-
had ever happened. :.
I was kind of proud of Jim
Grey for asking the hard questions


of Rose. They needed asking!.
I should have known, by .the
audience reaction to Grey's ques-
tions, that Atlanta would lose the
series ... in four straight games.

AS MY' GATOR FRIENDS
would say, "There's always,'dxt
year!" .
That's such a comfort.'
What that means, is; "We did-
n't do it this year, but we will hpve
another chance at the brass ring
next year, when everything, will ie
different. Won't it? b r '
Gallaragah will be recovered
.and back in the lineup.
Lopez will have:, his, leg all
healed upand be' 100Q% again.,
'ienberger Wll'be back at hts
old spot of "stopper" once mre,
although John Rocker has dorte
'pretty nifty job at the position.
John is also a showman! Terry ..ill

Seafood Festival Nov. 5-7


The 36th Florida Seafood Fes-
tival returns to Apalachicola's
Battery Park once again this year,
promising fun and excitement for
all.
Beginning on Friday, Novem-
ber 5, at 4:00 p.m., the "Blessing
of the Fleet" takes place. During
this colorful event, several clergy-
men bless the passing fishing,


shrimping, oystering, and recre-
ational vessels in the marina.
Highlighting the day is the
arrival of Miss Florida Seafood
and King Retsyo aboard the Gov-
ernor Stone. Each year, the Florida
Seafood Festival crowns one
young lady from the community
as the festival queen. This year,
the recipient of this title is Kayla
Lee.


Gulf County High Schools


Are N.O-T (Not on Tobacco)


Santa's Wearing A Tie Now!


'State Attorney Jim Appleman
was in town early this week bear-
inggifts of a vehicle.
SAppleman presented Gulf
County Sheriff Frank McKeithen
with the keys to a "new" used
1993 four-wheel drive Ford
Bronco.
"We felt like Santa came .to-
town early," said- Sheriff
McKeithen. "We were in desperate


need of another unmarked four-
wheel drive vehicle-this came at
just the right time."
Appleman said his office nor-
mally has to return vehicles to the
state, but received special permis-
sion to make the transfer at no
charge to Gulf County.
"This is a first," Appleman
said. The state has never allowed


him to make this type of transfer.
. He felt that the economic crisis in
Gulf County was a major con-
tributing factor for the state's
decision. ,
Sheriff McKeithen said the
vehicle will fill several major
needs the department currently
has because it is an unmarked.
vehicle and it is a four-wheel
drive.

The American Lung Associa-
tion of Florida, Northwest Region
(ALAF-NW) in partnership with
the Florida Office of Tobacco
Control is pleased to sponsor the
N-O-T (Not on,Tobacco) teen ces-
sation program. N-O-T is a state
of-the-art smoking ,cessation pro-
gram for high, school students
interested in "kicking the nicotine
addiction."
Last spring, five high schools
. frpm the West Florida panhandle
actively participated In this quit,
program. Results proved success-
ful with students quitting or
reducing their cigarette consump-
tion.
This spring. Port St. Joe High
School has agreed to host this.,
program with support from facul- .
ty and administration. Starting In
February. 20 students, 10 male


and 10 female will be challenged
to quit smoking.
Typically teens begin smoking
between the ages of 11 and 13.
Nicotine addiction has shown to
develop quickly with youth. Most
often, they experience all the
physical and psychological effects
of nicotine addiction including
cravings, withdrawal symptoms
when they do not smoke and even
difficulty quitting.
The most disturbing fact
shows that one out of every three
teens xvho continue to smoke iuto
adulthood' will eventually die of
smoking-related deaths.
For more Information about
N-O-T, please contact Gina de,
Peralta Thorne 'at the American

Special Thanks
Prior to and following my
recent heart surgery, I really
experienced the love, concern,
and care that a small community
offers. The food, prayers, visits,
and cards flowed on my behalf
and I would like to thank every-
one for their kindness and gen-
erosity.
Most of all, I felt your
prayers-wi thou t prayer I know
my surgery and recovery would
not have been so successful.

Duck Hunting Area Being Developed


ILn MK Ranches by the St. Joe Co.


The St. Joe Company, in con-
junction with the Florida Game
Commission, is taking steps to
make Willis Swamp the new ,'
"StuttGart Arkansas" for duck
hunters, by establishing a duck
hunting area in the former M-K
Ranch rice growing areas.
Currently under construction is
an area ,of 700-acres of flood,
ponds, to be controlled by the
pumps vacated by M-K.
The area is located between
Willis Landing and Howard Creek
and will eventually cover. 2,000
acres of flooded duck hunting
area. The area will be planted with
attractive waterfowl grains and
flooded with one to two feet of
water each fall and winter.
The flooded areas will be bro-
ken up into separate fields from
10 to 50 acres each and will be
leased by the company. Although
the manner of lease hasn't been
determined as yet, it will be
according to the plan that will give
St. Joe the most return on its
money.
The area to be developed is
low-lying and marshy woodlands
and flat lands formerly planted in
rice. St. Joe had planted pine
trees in the area, but found that
periodic flooding.,by.-ther,,iver
made growing them impractical.
These areas have been plowed
under and turned into grain fields
to attract the waterfowl to the
feeding area.
All species 'of ducks are
already attracted to the area
including the species .known as
snow geese. Hunting of the water-
fowl will be by invitation only this
year and the areas leased for next

Known as the Tupelo Bend
Waterfowl Area, the area is being
developed to attract both water-
fowl and hunters to Gulf County,
The St. Joe Company, in con-
representative of St. Joe Com-
pany
Jones told the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday that Gulf County is
already on the natural fly-way of
many species of waterfo\i.
attracted by the Apalachicola and
Chipola Rivers which flow,
through the county. Creation, of
the food plots" will be more of an'
attraction to the migrating birds.
* Each field will have a number
of areas left in them to serve as
hunting blinds. Several areas are
left in their, natural state since
they are already attracting water-
fowl. These includes. ponds,
cypress heads, andi other wetland
areas found in the vicinity. Plans
are tb flood 700 acres this season
and nearly double the number of
acres flooded for next season.
The flooding will be done from
the Willis Landing end, matricu-
late down through the property,
and exit on the Howard Creek


end, resulting in no loss of river
water.
Jones pointed put that the
new area will be strictly permitted
by state agencies and water will
be strictly governed: by the


Northwest Florida Water Manage-
ment Area. Intentions are to cre-
ate a waterfowl hunting area in
Gulf County to equal that found
anywhere in Louisiana or
Arkansas.

Gators Come From Behind to Win


The Wewahitchka Gators gave
a packed homecoming crowd all
the excitement they wanted last
Friday night beating homecoming
foe.R. F. Munroe 28-21.
"Our kids played hard again,"
said head coach Grant Grantham.
"P. J. Addison had an extraordi-
nary night. He got beat deep once
early in the gape, but was pretty
much perfect, the rest of the
night."
Munroe jumped out in front of
tle Gators 7-0 midway through
the first quarter. With a fourth
and goal on the three 'yard line,
the Bobcats went for the score,
quarterback Jason Armstrong
connected with Jamie Holcomb
fq- the first of their three touch-
dovn hook-ups. The extra points
attempt was good.
b. Their second connection, 7:47
before halftime, was a 65 yard
strike to cap off a five play, 92
yard drive, and put the Bobcats
up 14-0 ... .. ,.
However, the Gators bounced
back when P. UJ. Addison took the
ensuing kick-off and raced 96
y.rds for a touchdown. The two-
0p'int conversion run failed, but
Addison's run closed the gap to 6-
14.


The score helped swing the
momentum back t6 the Gators.
The defensive unit handcuffed
Munroe during their next series,
and gave the ball back to the
offense on their own 45 yard line.
On the first play from scrim-
mage, Harold Williams raced 55
yards on a trap play to bring the
Gators to within two points with
Wewahitchka's second score. The
two-point conversion failed and'
the Gators trailed 12-14 with-5:28
remaining in the half.
A Gator fumble early in the
third quarter set up another
Munroe touchdown after the
Bobcats recovered the ball on the
Gator 48 yard line. Once again
quarterback Jason Armstrong
connected with Jamie Holcomb
for the score- this time on a 30
yard pass play- jumping ahead
of Wewahitchka by nine points,
21-12.
P. J. Addison wasted little
time responding again on behalf
of his team. This time he took the
ensuing kick-off 75 yards for. his.
second kick-off return for a
touchdown on the night; ,Bradley
Shavers caught a Brandon Jones'
pass in the end zone for the two-
point conversion and the Gators

closed the gap to one point at 20-
21.
Addison made another big
play during Munroe's next pos-
session intercepting a Bobcat
pass attempt near the goal line
and returning if to the Gators four
yard line.
From there Wewahitchka
mounted a 13 play, 96 yard
touchdown drive to take a 28-21
"lead midway through the fourth
quarter. Myron Vann scored the
touchdown on a five yard run and
'P. J. Addison's two-point conver-
sion run turned out to be the win-
ning points.
Three consecutive intercep-
tion's by P. J. Addison, Brandon,
Jones. and another by Addison
kept the Bobcats from responding
to Wewahitchka's go ahead score.
We got a feel for the game in
the second quarter. Our run
defense played extremely well,

as the Port St. Joe Sharks waxed
the Sneads Pirates 46-6 in Friday
night's gridiron action.
S"Overall, we played pretty
well," said head coach Chuck
Gannon. "Offensively, we played
real well, especially our passing
game. The offensive line did a
good job of blocking for the run
and the pass." '
The Pirates'took the opening
kick-off of the game and drove
I down to the Sharks 29 yard line'
from their own 31- threatening

tie. Charlie Alexander capped off
the drive with a one yard touch-

yards out- Lambert added the
extra point for a 46-6 Port St. Joe
lead with 1:08 remaining in the

"I' was concerned with the
defense. We gave up too many
yards rushing. We need to
improve against the rush and cut
down' on the penalties if we expect
to beat Wewa," said Gannon.

device can help, but it is not a sub;'

Senior Reporters *


Homecoming week was a
huge success! Spirit was, over-
flowing as the -students partic-
ipated in all of the week's activi-
ties. The Student Government
Association worked very hard in
coordinating all of the events
throughout the week.
The festivities began with
coronation on Tuesday night,,
'where Rocky Joe Traylor and
Sarah Michelle Bailey were'
crowned our 1999-2000 Home-
coming king and queen. All
friends and family enjoyed this
special occasion. There was a
,reception immediately following'
'the ceremony.
Friday was a busy day, start-
ing with the alumni luncheon.
Numerous amounts of altmni-'
about 70 strong-showed up' at
the W.H.S. Media Center, where
they were reunited with, old class-
mates and teachers. While remi-
niscing of old.times, they enjoyed
a wonderful lunch prepared by,
the lunchroom staff.
The students of W.H.S. were
,released at one o'clock so that
they, could participate in and'
watch the homecoming parade
that began at two. o'clock.
.Hundreds of well-wishers lined'
our main street and responded to
the many participants.
Immediately following, the
parade was the homecoming pep
-rally which took-place' in front of
the community building. The.-
cheerleaders did. a wonderful job
boosting the spirit of the football
team and fans. This helped out
-during the homecoming game
'where the Gators defeated '"the,
R.F. Munroe Bobcats (28-21).
The football team played a
great game and is now ranked.
eighth in the state. Special men-
tion should -be .made about P.J.
'Addison who had ari unbelievable
game. He had three interceptions
on defense and ran kick-offs back
for incredible gains including two
touchdowns. Great job Gators!!
The homecoming dance took
'place in the WHS Commons Area
following the game, Alumni and
students danced the night' away.
All homecoming festivities were a
success. Thanks to all partici-
pants and helpers!
The National 'Honor Society'
held a Halloween dance for the-
middle school students Thursday
afternoon. Everyone present was
dressed up in his or her favorite
costume and had a fabulous time.
That evening, many students par-
ticipated in the Fine Arts


Program, held in the WHS
Commons Area.
This was an event to show off
our talent here at WHS. Alumni,
parents, students, and other com-
munity members came to support
those : Who participated. The
drama club did a jam up job inh
presenting "The Legend of Sleepy
.Hollow. "
There were also other stu-
-dents wiho displayed musical,.
vocal, and artistic: talents. "
Pianists Jessica and Jeena
Breman and Laura Husband per-
formed wonderfully, as did soloist
- Jennifer Williams. -
On Saturday, the cross coui-" *:
try team finished' fourth in the
PSJ invitational. We had two run- ,
ners.in; the. top 10 (Chester Udell
and Jeremy Sams) and finished
ahead of'all other Gullf and Bay
county teams. We are getting
stronger as we approach state
competition.
This. Friday is the biggest
ganie of the year against our
greatest rival, the' Port St. Joe
Sharks. The cheerleaders have
posted positive thinking.posters,,
such as "You' Gotta Believe,"
around the school to boost spirit
and support.
The theme for' th liig 'eek' is':
"Beach the Sharks." :Everyone
bring out his or her best beach-
wear! The.game starts at seven'
o'clock -on Gator Field.. -Please
come out and support our team!

-The marketing efforts of many
businesses and organizations
depend on the telephone, but
fnany consumers do not like the
intrusion of-telephone sales calls
into their personal lives. Florida
who the first state to address the
matter through specific legislation
and continues to be a strong
leaderr concerning Floridians'
)right to privacy.
:Under the Florida Telephone
:Solicitatiqn Act, the Florida,
"Department o0 Agriculture and
Deopsumer Senjces compiles a list
fC consumers who 'do not wish to
e.r.eive sales solicitations over the
yhbne. All telephone solicitation.
firms that are covered by the law
Are prohibited from calling those
numberss appearing on the "No:
'Sales Solicitation Calls List."'
.Qegardless of the business' loca-
'-Consumers desiring to sub-.
:scibe to this service pay $10 for,
-he first year and $5 .to renew,
each year thereafter. The
Department automatically pro-
vides renewal notices. Multi-year
subscriptions are available, and
consumers may simply remit the
amount appropriate for the term
of service they would like ,to
receive.
"Subscribers' residential tele-
phone numbers are then listed,
and the numberof sales calls they
receive should be dramatically
reduced. New subscribers receive
a- letter and information about
enforcement of the law and how to
file complaints. A new sub-
scriber's service goes into effect
when the list is updated every
three months..
Some types of calls and busi-
nesses are exempt from the provi-
sions of the law. Solicitors may
make calls: -
*In response to an expressed
request by the person called.
*In reference to an existing
debt or contract.
j'*To any person with whom
the telephone solicitor has a prior
or an existing business relation-
ship.
*If they are employed by a


newspaper and are calling about
newspaper business.
However, all solicitors must
identify themselves by their true
.first and last name, and state the
name of the firm on whose behalf
they are calling. Many telephone
solicitors make use of automated
dialing devices that randomly dial
telephone numbers.
The law permits automated
dialing devices with live messages
under certain circumstances, but.
prohibits recorded sales mes-
sages. The law prohibits random:
dialing devices from calling
unlisted telephone numbers or
numbers on. the "No Sales ,.
Solicitation Calls List." -
Consumers currently sub-
scribing to this service can report
prohibited sales calls 'to the
Department 'by writing ito the

MEDITATIONS OF A
( LuntrW FIrearDier
By LOWELL F. ADAMS


Who Is Your
Priest
"You are a Royal
Priesthood"
I Peter 2:9


LI" ft


: HE PRIVILEGE OF A PRIEST is access to
fW the Heavenly Father. Under God's Law, the.
High Priest was the only person who could go into the
"holy of holies" and make sacrifice and intercession for
the sins of the people. He could do this only once each
year. This was the provision of God with His people
under the original covenant. Hebrews 8:9 says the
people did not honor that covenant.
"Jesus is the mediator of a new covenant, which is
established upon better promises." (Heb. 8:6)
Jesus came in the flesh to establish that new cov-
enant, which makes every born-again child of God a
priest. They have the privilege of approaching God in
the Name of Jesus. First Peter 2:9 declares Christians,
the saved children of God, a "Royal Priesthood".
SNo longer do 'God's children, have to depend upon
a priest to make intercession for their sins, or to seek
God's blessing. Every believer has access to the
Heavenly Father, through the wonderful Name of
Jesus. And they can do that anywhere they happen to
be, and at any time not just once a year.
Under the new covenant. faith in God, faith in'
Jesus, and faith in the promises of God, 'is of utmost
importance. For "without faith it is impossible to please
God" (Hebrews 11:6). Jesus told His disciples in
Matthew 21:22, "Anything whatsoever you shall ask in
prayer, believing, you shall- receive." And in Jamnes
5:15: "The prayer offaith shall save the sick"When you
and I switch on' the bathroom light, or turn on the
lavatory faucet, we know what will happen. That's the
kind of faith God wants His children to have concern-
ing His promises.
I John 3:23 tells us God's commandments. "This is
His commandment, that we should believe on the
Name of His Son. Jesus Christ, and love one another."
I John 5:1 tells us "Whosoever believes that jesus is the
Christ is born of God." And verse 13 assures us if we
believe this, we can KNOW that we have eternal life.

Dreaming Dreams

In Joel 2:28 we find, "And it
should come to pass afterward,
that I will pour out my spirit in all
flesh, your sons and daughters
shall prophesy. Your old men
shall dream dreams, and your,
young men shall see visions."
We do not live in4a perfect
world. God has given us freedom
Oliver,F. Taylor of choice. Some people disobey
Visitation Minister, First God by sinning. This hurts peo-
United Methodist Church pie and causes confusion.
As I get older I dream dreams. I want to live in a world
without sin, where people live together in Christian love.
I had a friend in her nineties who recently died. At times,
she had been hurt by some people she loved. She used
to wonder why people could not live as God intended
them to live.
This is also my dream. However, every Christian has
a responsibility in making this dream come true.

Thompson Rish Becomes Century 21 Franchisee Printing and Business Supply Needs


Jay Rish, president of
Century 21 Thompson-Rish
Realty has completed the Century
21" International Management
Academy, an intensive five day
course that educates and empow-
ers new and seasoned Century
franchises with the latest mafrt'
agement techniques.
S Mike Berry, a training consul-
tant for Century 21 Real Estate

quarterly at Ceintry 21 corporate
headquarters in Parsippany, New
Jersey.
"The Century 21 International

Postpones Protest
.'. > ; * '. '* .. .; **


Dear Editor,
After receiving additional`
information, the Wakulla Fisher-
men's Association held an emer-
gency meeting to d Iscuss postpon-
ing the protest scheduled for
Saturday, 'November 6th at
Wooley Park. One of the issues.
discussed was-have we given the
newly established Florida Wildlife
conservation Commission enough.
time to understand that millions
of fish were unnecessarily "killed
and wasted?
We have to help the F.W.C.C.
to understand that a commercial
net that has been unrefuted by all
evidence not to be commercially
viable is impossible to enforce.
With a 500 square foot commer-
cially viable net the Fishermen
and Florida Marine Patrol can
work hand in hand for good
enforcement. The real winner will
be the environment and the tax-
payer.
November 8, 1994 the voters
took the large net from fishermen,
giving them the right to use small
500 square' foot shrimp nets. cast'
nets, and seine or rectangular
nets. If,there is not a resource
emergency we consider this a
right and not a privilege and no
one can take it without just cause.
The newly established F.W.C.C.
can regulate the 500 square foot
gear if required to ,protect the
marine resource fro~ over fishing.
The Florida Constitution '
demands that the marine re-
source be managed for all people,
the healthy and the physically
impaired with gear that does not
unnecessarily kill and waste.
The Wakulla Fishermen's
Association. voted to postpone the
protest on Saturday, November 6,
at Wooley Park. With a rule that
protects the consumers, marine
resources and gives equal oppor-
tunity access to Florida citizens,
the fishermen will work with the
Florida Marine Patrol for good law'
enforcement.,
Call the Florida Wildlife con-
servation Commission and tell
them it is time to "Stop the
Killing." Phone # (850) 487-3796
or e-mail them at

Concerned Caregiver.
Dear Citizens of Gulf County,
Your assistance is a matter of
great importance to those I serve
the homebound, sick, and dying
would be very much appreciated.
As you know, in August 1997,
the Congress passed the Balanced
Budget Act of 1997 (BBA 97). It
did many good things to balance
the budget and helped produce
the largest federal budget surplus
in U.S. history. Congress is
presently debating what to do
"with the surplus, whether to give
back in tax relief or use it to
extend the viability' .of the
Medicare and Social Security
Trust Funds.
There is growing recognition
in Congress that certain Medicare
cuts mandated in BBA 97 went
too.far. This is certainly the case
with home health care. President
Bill Clinton has proposed restor-
ing several billion dollars;
Republican leaders have done the
same. The Congress originally
intended to cut the home care
benefit by $16 billion'
The Congressional Budget
Office has confirmed that actual
reductions in the Medicare home
health benefit over five years will
'total $48 billion instead of $16 bil-
lion. In short, home health has
been cut three times more than
Congress intended. We need
change now.
As a home caregiver, I have
seen first-hand the devastating


management tools and complete
understanding of the Century 21.
system necessary to serve their
agents and clients to the best of
their ability."
"The International Manage-
ment Academy renewed my belief
in the power of the Century 21
System," says Jay Rish,
broker/owner of Century 21
Thompson-Rish Realty. "As a
Century 21 franchisee, I can draw
on the, knowledge and experience,
of more than 6,300 other offices
worldwide, which helps me to
improve my market intelligence,,
agent productivity and office effi-
ciency."
Century 21 Thompson-Rish
Realty offers 'full-service real
estate capabilities, specializing in
residential property sales in Port
St. Joe, Mexico Beach, Cape San'
Blas, and the surrounding area. ;


effect these cuts have caused to,
those receiving care the home-
bound, sick, and dying. I've seen'
in their faces, the fear of losing
their Medicare home health bene-
fit, with the real possibility of
being forced from their homes into:
institutions-or even worse, going
without care at all.
I have watched as nearly one-
third of my colleagues in home
care agencies from across the,
country' lose their jobs due to
agency closings from the budget
cuts. When I think of these
friends, I always think about their:
patients who are no longer receiv-
ing care.
I urge you to support legisla-
tion' pending before the Congress
that would block yet another 15%
cut in ,Medicare home health
expenditures before it takes place
on October 1, 2000. I also .urge
you to restore the equity that has
unfairly been taken from the old-
est, sickest, and most frail among
us.
The situation for those
-Americans receiving homecare is
intolerable. Please help me to con-
tinue to provide care and comfort
to those in need.. ,
Sincerely,
Maureen Mattison, R. N.


Realignment of Hwy 98
Dear Editor,'
Thank you for your recent
and improved coverage of the
Highway 98 realignment issue.
This is a matter of importance to
all the residents of Gulf County
and will help determine the direc-
tion the county will take in deal-
ing with future development
issues.
The realignment ofU.Highway
98 proposed by St. Joe-Arvida
does little to benefit the citizens of
Gulf County' and is an affront to
the taxpayers who have paid to
maintain and improve the current
roadway.
I respect the right of the com-'
pany to develop its property but
find it hard to believe' that .it
-,MUST have that stretch of road
for the development to proceed. as
was implied by Mr. Corr in, the
October 14 meeting. Certainly we
need improved hurricane evacua-
tion routes for this coast,. espe-
cially as more and more people
become full time residents of the
area. The road as it is proposed
does nothing toward this end,
serving only to isolate St. Joe's
property (greatly increasing its
value.) It also creates a bottleneck
at St. Joe Beach and puts at risk
one of'the last pristine, undevel.
oped pieces of coastline in the
Panhandle.
Although Mr. Corr has stated
that public access to the area
would remain, he also stated at
September's meeting that the cur-
rent road would remain intact, a
position that. has since been
reversed. What, guarantee does
the public have that St. Joe will
keep its word on public access?
What about the disparity in
value of the property that St. Joe-
Arvida would "donate" and the
value of the property they would
receive? Are they willing to submit
to an independent appraisal and
pay the county the difference?
Information I have received
from the DOT indicates that if the
realignment of the road is
approved, the current right of way
will be ceded to the county. Now is
the time for Gulf County to start
working with the DOT to develop a
long range plan for improving
evacuation routes. 'Development
is coming to this area, whether or
not St. Joe-Arvida eledts to pro-
ceed. Let's start looking now for a
long term solution that will bene-
fit ALL the residents of the area,
not just the St. Joe Company.

Parents Alert: V-Chip

Helps Protect Kids

From Violent TV Shows


"V for Victory" was once a-
popular, slogan. Now "V, for V-
chip" ,may herald another victo-'
ry-a victory to help parents pro-.
tect their children from violent,
and sexually suggestive TV shows.
The V-chip is a device built
into television sets that allows,
parents to block shows they do
not want their children to see. The.,,
V-chip works in conjunction with
the voluntary ratings system
designed by the television Indus-,'
try. The first V-Chip equipped TV
sets are in stores now. ,
FCC Commissioner Gloria
Tristani, chair of the ,
Commission's V-Chip Task Force,
noted that children spend about
28 hours a week watching TV,
more time .each year than they,
spend in the classroom.
"Much of what'' they are'
watching is violent. By the time'
they complete elementary school,
children have' witnessed about,
8,000 murders and 100,000 acts
,of violence."
She noted that no parent can


possibly know what's on TV all the
time and, in many cases, children
are in single parent households or
households where both parents
work..
"These parents .; want and
deserve the ability to protect their
children as much as parents who
are able to closely monitor their
children's viewing habits," she"
said.
The V-chip will give parents, a
modern :tool to help raise their
children in the modern world.
Under the voluntary industry rat-
ing system, parents will be able to
receive the information they need
in order to determine whether an
upcoming program contains sex,
violence, offensive language, or.
suggestive dialogue.
Commissioner Tristani
warned that the V-chip will not,
relieve parents of the responsibill-
ty of determining what their chil-
dren watch .on TV, but will help
them to fulfill that responsibility.,'

Home Protection from Termites


Wood-destroying organisms,
such as termites, are a very seri-
.ous problem in Florida. They
attack and damage any building
material that contains cellulose,
such .as wood used in house and
building construction, drywall
covered with paper or siding
'materials containing cellulose.
But homebuilders and home-
owners can take -steps to avoid
termite problems,
This requires two things
proper construction techniques
and proper termite protection
application.. -,Construction fea-
tures -that increase chances of
termite infestation include wood
'to soil contact (siding, steps,
porches), short overhangs that
allow rainwater to wash soil at
the base of the foundation, soil-
filled planters against the side of.
a house, stucco,, Ion wire .lath.
extending below grade, and
wooden porches or. steps that
come into contact with the
house.
Most protection chemicals
can only be used by state-
licensed pest control applicators..
Application of these chemicals
also requires specialized equip-
ment and is not something that
homeowners can easily do'.
Termite control companies have


V,-Chip-

"encode" programming so that the
television rating information can
be "read" by;a V-chip equipped TV
set: The V-chip is essentially a
remote control device with a
longer range. It allows parents to
'turn off' programs while they are
at work, at the PTA meeting, or at
a movie."
Children are unable to
unblock programming because
Only. the parent knows the "PIN"
number needed to program the TV
,set.
Some critics have said that
the V-chip, is too complicated for
parents to use. However, many
who have used the V-chip found it'
to be no more difficult than pro-
gramming a, VCR." In addition.
"parents will do things for 'their
children that they -won't- do, for
themselves," Tristani said. "I may
not take the time to learn to pro-
gram my VCR to record a movie,


this equipment.
The best time to do an effec-
tive treatment is during con-
struction. State law requires a
termite contract with a warranty.
when treatment is rendered dur-
ing construction. :Home. buyers
can buy a damage replacement,
warranty that will protect them
financially should the treatment
fall. Usually, the contract is for
one year followed by four annual
renewals. Find out if you are
buying a repair or re-treatment
warranty and make sure to
renew the contract annually!
There are also easy steps you
can take to reduce your risk of
termite infestation:
'Don't pile wood against the
house or in the garage ,
*Maintain your termite con-
tract and renew annually
*Maintain gutters and down-
spouts so that rainwater is dis-
charged 18 to 24 inches from the
foundation.
*Channel air-conditioning
drainage away from house
*Keep roof in good, repair;
stop leaks immediately'
'.*Keep mulch .and, landscap-
ing away from siding
*Keep irrigation away from,

but I'll take the tim to learn to
program, the V-chip to protect my
children from objectionable mate-
rial.". .
SConsumers can alsospurchase
a stanid-alone box with V-chip
capabilities that can. be attached
to an older television set that does
not have the V-chip built-in.r
"As parents begin using the
V-chip. I am hopeful that they will
come to value it as an effective
and easy-to-use tool for blocldng
programming that they deem
harmful to, their children,"
Tristani said. (More information
'can be; accessed on the
Commission internet V-chip web
site: http://www.fcc.gov/vchip/)

Everything I Need to Know, I
'Learned From My Dog
When loved ones come home,
always run to' greet them; never
pass up the opportunity to go for
a joyride; allow the experience of
fresh air and the wind in your face
to be pure ecstasy.
When it's in your best inter-
est, practice obedience; let others
know when they've invaded your
territory; take naps-,.and stretch.


before rising.
Run, romp,, and play daily;
thrive on attention and let people
touch you; avoid biting, when a
simple growl will do; on warm
days, stop to lie on your back on
the grass; on hot days, drink lots
of water and lay under a shady
.tree.. ,
No matter how often you're
scolded, don't buy into the guilt
thing and pout... run right back
and make friends: delight in the.
simple jqy of a long walk; eat with
gusto and enthusiasm, stop when
you have had enough; be loyal;
never pretend to be something
you're not.
If what you want lies buried,
dig until you find it; when some-
one is having a bad day, be silent,
sit close by and nuzzle them gen-
tly..
So now that you have read
this little piece of advice, go to the
Humane Society today and adopt
