City Board Looks at Flooding
Downtown PSJ Drainage Needs More Outfall Capacity
Preble-Rish engineer Bill
Kennedy spent the first several
minutes of Tuesday evening's Port
SSt. Joe City Commission meeting
Reviewing the city's downtown
,;drainage shortfalls and several
options to reduce the problems.
In a nutshell. Kennedy told
the board that the downtown
drainage system had more water
coming in than they did outfalls
to handle, it, especially during
periods of heavy rainfall.
He further explained that the
issue is complicated, somewhat,
when high tides and heavy rains
occur simultaneously because the
area is a gravity fed system.
Port St. Joe has three main
drainage ditches that serve the
downtown area at Third Street,
Fourth Street, and Cecil G.

Just What We Need
We'll Be On the List of State
Counties Seeking For An Opportunity
CAN YOU SPEND A DESIGNATION? What does it amount to,
in dollars and cents? How many groceries will it buy? How many
house or car payments, will it make? In other words, just how
much does the designation of Gulf County as an area of critical
concern, amount to in cold, hard cash?
That's the question many of our citizens are posing, now. Just
what does this designation mean to us? We understand that our
elected public servants find it almost impossible not to support
this latest in designations for our county, but what does it mean
as. cash in hand for our people? Does it mean more to us than just
another vehicle to point ,to with pride and say, "See, what we have
worked hard to provide for you?"
SO MANY OF THESE DESIGNATIONS are viewed with public
pessimism. They are viewed merely as means for the elected offi-
cials to gain public recognition for themselves. Is this to be one of
those exercises or is it to actually mean something concrete for
A lot of elected officials-from the courthouse to the state-
house-are putting their future reputation on the line in this
announcement. The revelation could come back to haunt them on
election day, if they fail to perform as promised.
The Governor of Florida is even behind this latest announce-
ment, along with his Lieutenant Governor. They. both, are in an
exposed position, following the recent designation; as are our rep-
resentative and several local officials. *
WE'RE SUPPORTIVE OF THEIR designation, realizing that
our county, especially, needs some assistance in realizing its role
in the economic prosperity of the state of Florida. For the past 50
years we have been the example of what a small county should be
like. We're not accustomed to being singled out as part of the "poor
folks" of the state.
We don't expect the state to hand out a welfare-like dole to our
county, but give us assistance to help ourselves. We believe this is
what this most recent designation is meant to do. It will be the
tools we need to rise up, again, from the ashes of adversity on our
,own. with just a little assistance.
THANKSGIVING WILL BE HERE before you know it-next
Thursday,. to be exact! It will be a day to give thanks for what we
have, what we have accomplished, and for our position in life.
'None of us can say that we aren't blessed, for we all are!
Even in our economic position, we can truthfully say, "We are
most blessed." Some have had it a little harder than others, but
nobody has gone hungry. suffered from the weather extremes, nor
gone without a roof over their heads.
Our town and county has continued to progress and grow
steadily. Our schools are adequate and modern. There's still plen-
ty of good things happening. A glance at The Star's front page will
attest to that.
EVEN THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT a grand jury has been
impanelled to indict a couple for murder is a "happening" which
isn't the normal thing for us around here. When was the last time
you heard of a murder being committed in our town? in our
*Murders aren't our usual bill of fare. They are few and far
between, usually being committed by people who are just passing
We are fortunate to have so few in Gulf County or Port St. Joe.
We have them so seldom that a grand jury selection is almost
unheard of. What other location can boast this condition?
The commitment of a murder, the impanelling of a grand jury
*and other such unsavory events not coming to fruition are not the
!only things we are fortunate to be without. We are also fortunate
that the most frequent cause for arrests are "no drivers license"
and "driving under the influence". We're fortunate and blessed
that we have no "rage" in our schools or other public places.
We still have the finest spot in the world to live and rear a fam-
ily. free from fear and interference from unsavory forces.

Buzzett started talking, at the
Kiwanis Club,' telling about his
first experience with ,an ocean
cruise. As you might guess, his
first experience with an ocean
cruise was on a troop ship, sail-
ing for England during World War
Gannon told how he crossed
the United States, from his train-'
ing station in Texas to Boston,
where he boarded the phip.
"We spent tw'o days "and
nights on that troop train,' sitting
up in a day coach all the way. No
air conditioning and cinders,
blowing through the open win-,
dows to add to the experience,"

down, we went until we were
about two decks from the bottom
of the hull. We were assigned a
space 'just large enough to lie in
and put our rucksack at our feet.
'"There were as many men on
that ship as they, could pack in,"
"We weren't allowed to come
up on the outside deck for 12
days and nights! We were kept
below deck for the entire trip,
eating twice a day and standing
in the chow line the remainder of
the day," he said.
"Several of the men became,
seasick in those cramped quar-

other. The smell became pretty

we were coming home!"
IN THE MEANTIME Gannon
spent his time in Europe getting
shot' at, frozen, starved, and
going without a bath. in three
separate battles, including rThe
Battle of the Bulge".
Gannonr remarked;,. "I c6uld-

the young men of today could
stand the hardships we had to go
through. But, we did, simply
because we knew we had a job to
do and we did it withoutt a second

nation was united in purpose
Gannon related his tale in a
sort of nmatter-of-fact :manner,
and the remainder of-those who
had served in the war nodded
assent, to his every observation.
I'm wondering if we could
find enough young men to suffer
those deprivations if we had it to

PSJHS Did A Great
Job On Veterans Day
I attended the Veterans Day
program at Port St. Joe High
School this past Thursday and
would like to say a big thank you
to all who ,had a part in making it
such as special day for the veter-
M :rs. Charlotte Pierce for hav-
Ing thought enough of her fellow
man to have a special program in
Lhe school system, and for all the
others who helped make plans.
SBut my biggest thank you
would be to the kids of Port St.
,oe High School. They sat and lis-
tened to everything thatwas said.
T!*y were very quiet and very,
very respectful. Though most of
them were born after all the wars
jhad been forgotten, they sat and
tried to understand what a veter-
an really was and what they did.
It's hard for kids to under-
stand because so much is shown
on television. The good guy always-
wins an lives to fight another'
ay, but in actual combat the
good guys can hnd do get killed.
When Rodney Herring read
'the names of the ones in Vietnam
that were killed he got very emo-
ional, because just like me he
went to school with two of the
ones who died.
The thing that really helped,
bat also brought many tears, was
L e kids coming out of the stands'
to speak to each veteran and tell
them thank you. It was very
thoughtful and helped the veter-
ans more than words would ever
do. They did it on their own. No
one told them to go but they did
and it was great.
SThe drill team did an out-
standing job as well did the rifle
team. And the chorus with Mrs.
Cbmforter really moved the crowd
when thev sang the songs of the
services. Mr. Early and the
teachers of Port St. Joe High and
Middle School, we have a lot to be
proud of-thank you.
Col. Kennedy's words spoken
tq the veterans were as moving as
I've ever heard. He said what he
had in his heart.
When he spoke to the
Vietnam veterans and said wel-
corne home. job well done. there
was not a Nam veteran that was-
n't in tears. I spent two tours (two
years) in Vietnam with the U. S.
Marine Corps and when I
returned home.no one said thank
you or welcome home. We were
treated so rudely that I actually
S thought of going back to Vietnam,
and it happened to all the
Vietnam veterans not just myself.
.' It's hard to get over and most
of us never will. But I'm proud to
be an American and proud to live
in a town that has kids like we
SThe one person I really missed
this Veterans Day was a man who
*as a true veteran. He was loved
by everyone he came in contact
with. If you saw him he always
had something good to say to you
or about someone else. He loved
lis God, his country and his fam-
i;ly. He always had a smile or a
good word to say.
This man will be truly missed
because he touched so many peo-
ple's lives. I never heard him say
Anything bad about anyone. I'm
speaking of Mr. Bill Parker.
The world needs more of the
Bill and Tommy Parkers. I'm so
thankful he was my friend and I
had times to share with him. I
know he is in Heaven waiting for
all his ole Army buddies.

This Week's Fishing Report
For November 5th to 16th ...
The weather has been the big problem for all of the offshore fisher-
men. I think it would be better if it was. like last year when Hurricane
Mitch roared through and then cleared up for some good fishing. We have
had one day in the last two weeks that was ideal and all the others were
barely fishable or too rough.
Just the opposite has been true for the beach fishermen; not only
has the wind been blowing off land onto the water, which makes no
waves on the beach, but the fish are biting good in the surf.
Now, what do you do about all those dog flies when the wind is out
of the East or Northeast?
The Spanish are still here in great numbers and the kings 'are still
here, but further offshore and spotty, They seem to bite only on the prime
feed time. Red snapper fishing is closed completely until January 1,
2000, as of October 31st.

3 HOW TO COMBAT
Here are some helpful rules to cope with a prob-
lem we all encounter at one time or another-stress.
First relax. It is likely that you will adapt to most stress-
es anyhow so why get "worked up." Second, try to look
at the situation favorably and convince yourself that the
source of the stress is useful or necessary.
Try to make your environment more predictable.
Stress is easier to handle when you know it might be
coming. At the same time, try to arrange situations so
you have the possibility of controlling the stress. All
this can help make a stressful world more livable and

Wisdom teeth is the name
commonly given to the third per-
manent molars. They lie in the very
back of the mouth and, as a result,
are often crowded and impact
(wedged against at an angle) the
tooth in front of them. If they are
not impacted, their removal is no
more complicated than any other
tooth. Sometimes, however, it is
important to extract these teeth
promptly to avoid complications.
Possible complications of wait-
or Not Remove?
ing include: pain, swelling, and
loss of much of your chewing abilin-
ty. These things often occur as the'
tooth attempts to erupt through the
gum and creates a flap under.
which food can become trapped.
This decaying food debris
becomes an ideal place for bacte-
ria to develop-which in turn leads
to infection and its problems which
include: prolonged recovery time,
increased cost of treatment, and:
danger to the patient's genera]
health. Most surgical problems
from wisdom teeth occur .in
patients who have waited too long:
If extractions are needed, have
them done promptly.

The BEST program brings
together a new group of schools,
from areas as diverse as northern
New Hampshire, Selma, Alabama,
the Atlanta' suburbs,' and
throughout the Midwest, all iden-
tified as having the potential. to
serve as model schools and men-
.tors for other systems at the start
of the 21st century.

Fire Safety Tips
For Home Protection
Written by Pam Martin
Many of my clients all have a
lot in common with each other,
the main connection is the chil-
dren. Many times women leave
abusive relationships only to be
ordered by the court to let the
abuser, the children's father, have
the children every other weekend
and six weeks every summer.
Would you believe that some
women stay with the abuser just
because of that one thing? They
say they can protect their children
when they are there, but not when
they go for visitation.
Sometimes the abuse the wife,
endured during the marriage is
placed upon the children when:
the wife is no longer in -the pic--
ture. Often women are injured
when exchanging, the children for

Advice from the American Red
Cross on fire prevention. ,
Fire is one of the most com-
mon disasters and' causes more
deaths than any other type of dis-.
aster. But fire does not have to be'
deadly if. you take precautions
and have an escape plan. Please
be serious about the responsibili-
ty of planning for and practicing
what to do in case of a fire. Get
together with household members
to discuss and finalize a personal-
ized fire plan. Practice your plan
frequently. Here are some guide-
lines you can use p,, preparing
your emergency plan:,
, Make your home fire safe
*Smnoke detectors save lives.
Install smoke detectors outside
each sleeping area and on each
additional level of your residence.
Keep new batteries on hand.
*Use the test button to check
each smoke detector once a
month. When necessary, replace
batteries immediately. Replace..-
batteries at least once a year.
*Have a working. fire extin-.
guisher in the kitchen. Make sure.
it is properly charged.
*Use 'the' test gauge. or test.
button to check proper pressure..
If the unit is' low' on" pressure,'
damaged,''or corroded, replace it
or have it professionally serviced.
Get training from the fire depart-
Iment on.how to use the fire extin-'
eKeep blankets, clothing, cur-
tains, furniture and anything that
could get hot and catch fire away
from portable heaters.j), .'
*Plug heaters directly into. the
wall- socket .-and unplug them
when they are not in use.
**Keep .items, away from the
stove that could catch fire. ;
*Use safety plugs in electrical
outlets, especially if you 'have'
small children. ,. -
*Avoid overloading electrical
outlets and running cords under
carpet and furniture.
Plan your escape routes
*Draw a floor plan of your
home. Determine at least two
ways'to escape from every room of
your home. :'
If you must use an escape
ladder, be sure everyone .knows
how to use it.
*Have a plan to escape if bars
cover windows. '
, You can help protect yourself
and your family from the dangers
of fire by)planning NOW for an
emergency. Be smart--be safe.

This is a busy week for the
Port St. Joe High School NJROTC
unit. On Friday, November 19th,
our annual inspection will take
place at Port St. Joe High School.
At approximately 9:45, cadets
from Wewahitchka High School
and Port St. Joe High School will
be inspected in the gymnasium.
Immediately following the
inspection, the "Pass in Review"
ceremony will take place at the
football field. Cadets will be work-
ing extremely hard this week to be
prepared for this event.
On Friday, November 12th,
the NJROTC. provided a drill team
and color guard for the homecom-
ing parade. We are especially
proud of Cadet Ensign Julie
Faircloth and her escort, Cadet
Lt. Cdr. Joshua McCulley, for
being chosen as members of the
On Thursday, November
11th, cadets provided a drill team
color guard, and rifle team for the
Veterans Day ceremony at the
-high school and the V.F.W. Post
#10069 ceremony at the county
courthouse. The cadet corps is
honored to be part of these won-
derful patriotic events which
honor our veterans.
Early Saturday morning, a
busload of cadets and chaperones
traveled .to Pensacola to attend
the Blue Angels' homecoming and
air show. In addition to the Blue
Angels' performance. the- cadets
were thrilled to see the Shockley
Peterbilt jet truck and the Oreck
There were numerous static
display airplanes, which included
the C-141, the F-117, the F-4,
and the F-14. Last, but not least,
2 we saw the C-130 Hercules. affec-
tionately known as "Fat Albert."
Fat Albert demonstrates a jet-
assisted take-off "JATO." Eight
solid fuel rockets attached to the
sides of the aircraft help Fat
Albert take off in less than 1,500
feet, climb at an angle of 45
degrees, and obtain an altitude of
1,000 feet in minimum time.
As you car see, last week was
very hectic for the corps of cadets.
With the annual inspection taking
place on Friday, this week will.be
just as busy. A lot of hard work
and preparation is necessary in
order to do well on the inspection.
Until next week, Semper Fi.

Gulf County District
Schools Score High
Submitted by:. SM. Eubanks,
Gulf County School District
The Gulf School District has,
recently received a press release
showing its state ranking in 1998-
99 graduation rate and drop-out
rate. Gulf was third In Florida
with an 80 percent graduation
rate. The state average was a low
60.23 percent. Gulf schools have
ranked second in two of the past
three years prior to 1998-99.
Gulf has been a leader in-
drop-out rate for many years, fin-
ishing in the top five consistently.
This year was no different, as it
ranked second in keeping stu-
dents in school with a 1.6 percent
drop-out rate. The state average
was 5.4 percent.
Gulf District Schools can be
justifiably proud of achievements,
as evidenced by state rankings in
these two very important indica-

Several years ago. the third
grade teachers at Wewahitchka
Elementary School began a won-'
derful tradition. Each year they
host a musical celebration honor-;
iing .bur American veterans. This
year's Veteran's Day program was ,
one which inevitably left the view-,
er. proud to be a citizen of this
great land and moved by the sac-'
rifice of its armed services.
The program opened with the
singing of the "Star Spangled
Banner" by the WHS chorus, as
they were 'accompanied by the
Gator Sound Band under the6
direction of Terry Str ker. This
was followed by the presentation,
of the flag by the ROTC color "
guard and a re-creation of the
Marines at Iwo Jima.
Following the Pledge of-
Allegiance, the third grade chorus-
sang and cheerleaders clad in red, ',
white, and blue cheered for the:i
veterans seated before them. A;,

presented and WES's own Bremer

Did everyone enjoy homecom-

super-fun week is gone. But to
replace it we have a whole new list
of events to make this week great!
First of all, this week is
"American Education Week."
Because of this, three very special
events will be taking place.
The first two are "Muffins
With Mom" and "Donuts' With
Dad." MWM will be on Thursday:
; DWD will be Friday. Both are tak-
ing place from 7:30 to 8:00 before
school. So come on out and enjoy
a pleasant morning with PSJMS
students and staff!
Also, because of' "American
Education Week," our Project
Wisdom readers every morning
will all be highly successful adults
who can surely teach us new and
exciting things! Be on the look-
out each morning for a new read-
This week also happens to be
"National and Florida Storytelling
Week." Ms. Ann Newsome will be
visiting Thursday at 10:30 to help
us celebrate. She is a storyteller
and will be entertaining us with
her amazing tales! I'm sure it's,
.going to be very enjoyable!
I'd also like to say congrats to

"Beans for Brains" contest and
was awarded $25 arid all the jelly-
beans in the jar. Good guess,
