Slots Quickly Fill
". Gulf County Chamber of
Coinmmerce Executive Director
Diane Scholz said Wednesday
in morning that all available inter-
.view slots 'have been filled for the
openings at Gulf County
"Shipbuilding.
Scholz said an overwhelming
S.. response for the positions has
swamped the chamber office with
inquiries over the past few weeks.
She pointed out that there
Swill probably be two phases of hir-
ing at Gulf County Shipbuilding,
so additional opportunities could
open up in the near future.
Only the Beginning
"This is the beginning of a
new day for the future of Gulf
County and we-all"-red to look
forward," Scholz said.-
* There are several projects
that are being worked on by Gulf
County, the Economic Develop-
.ment Council, city governments,
and the chamber.
Scholz said she hopes that
this round of applications will
merely be the first of several other
opportunities just around the cor-
ner.

Scallop Counts Draw Concern


Low Numbers Could Be Attributed to Red Tide Or Other Unknown Causes


by Caroline Hunsley
Members of the .St. Joseph
Bay Committee met on Thursday,
January 13th and heard the
news that scallop season may be
poor this year.
In her presentation to the
Committee, Tammy Summers. of
the Apalachlcola National
Estuarine Research Reserve in
Eastpoint said, "According to
recruitment rates, we're not going
to have a very good adult scallop
season predicted."
According to a 1998 research


review in the, Marine Ecology
.Progress Series titled Recruitment
of bay scallops Argopecten irradi-
ans. in Floridan Gulf of Mexico
waters: scales of coherence, there
are several possible factors that
may be contributing to the dimin-
ishing scallop population: over-
fishing. habitat degradation and
todc dinoflagellate blooms (red
tide).
Beginning in 1995. studies
have been conducted to track
adult scallop and spat (young
scallops) population in St. Joseph
Bay. Twenty survey stations were


established and geographically
marked and "at each survey sta-.
Lion, 2 SCUBA divers swam the
length of a 300m transect line
arranged in a triangular manner.
with I diver on either side of the
line counting all scallops within
Im of the line." (Recruitment of
.bay scallops Argopecten irradians

How serious is the depletion?
..Based on figures from 1998 and
'1999 Adult Scallop Densities
.studies in St. Joe Bay. the total
'number ol adult scallops found in


all 20 stations studied were as fol-
lows:

Figures for spat recruitment.
(the collection and tracking of
scallop offspring), are difficult "to

begins in the middle of November.

PSJ Sponsors Three Great Floridians

James Mock, David W. Jones, and Jessie Ball duPont

Are Sponsored For State Historic Marker Recognition


Port St. Joe city commission-
ers agreed to requests to sponsor
the nomination of three persons
for consideration as "Great
Floridians 2000."
Ann Harvey, manager of T.H.
Stone and Constitution State
Museum Parks, nominated for-
mer park manager James Mock.
Mock managed the park for near-
ly a quarter of a century.
Marsha Harpool, Washington
Improvement Group Coordinator,
nominated David W. Jones, for-
mer coach of the Washington High
School Tigers' basketball team
and physical education instructor
at the school (1953-1970).
Commissioner Damon McNair
asked the board to sponsor Jessie '
Ball duPont in recognition of her
many trust contributions to those
in need within the community.
All three names will be sub-
mitted to the state for considera-
tion. Those names approved will
have a state historic marker
placed to honor the deceased
"Great Floridians."


If the state approves all three
names, the historic markers
would be placed at: James Mock,
St. Joseph Constitutional State
SMuseum; David W. Jones, David
Jones Memorial Gym; and Jessie
Ball duPont, Chateau Nemours
Seaport Inn.
The program is sponsored by
the Florida League' of Cities and is
intended to recognize outstanding
men and women who made signif-
icant positive contributions to the
history and culture of the state
leading up to the 21st century.
Change In Grant Writers
Commissioners unanimously
agreed to hire the Apalachee
Regional Planning Council as
grant writers for the city, and give
10 day notification to Summit
Professional Services, of Tallahas-
see, of the board's intent to cancel
its contract.
Mayor Frank Pate made the
recommendation to the board,
stating that the Apalachee
Regional Planning Council would
do the work based on actual cost


to submit or for administrative
fees when they were included in
grants.
Commissioners David Horton
and Damon McNair questioned
whether Summit might be in the
middle of a project for the city.
Mayor Pate assured the board
that they. were not currently
actively working on a grant for the
city.
Receive $119,232
For Sewer Study
Bill Kennedy,, of Preble-Rish,
Inc. Consulting Engineers, ad-
vised the board th e city has
been approved for $119,232 from
the state's revolving loan program
to study sewer needs and outline
strategies for repairs.
The 2.7% interest money will
be used as the first step toward
correcting, repairing, relining and
maybe even replacing much of the
aging system. The city has applied
for grant funds to assist with the
project and also to address waste-
water treatment plant needs for
the future.


In Other Business
*County Commissioner Na-
than. Peters, Jr. recognized the
police force for its help during a
recent power line accident involv-
ing him at his residence. Peters
was hospitalized after being
shocked by the downed line. He
praised the police department
officers for their prompt action
which could have prevented oth-
ers from receiving injuries or
being killed.
Peters gave $1,000 from the
county's fine and 'forfeiture fund
for two new radios for the city and
$1,000 for other department
needs.
*The board tabled a recom-
mendation from Police Chief Jay
Leffert to purchase four new
police vehicles. Leffert requested
the board purchase Ford
Explorers at the state contract
price. He explained that the vehi-
cles would ultimately cost less
than Mercury Grand Marquis'

Considering that scallops begin to

are not promising.
However,' Bill Arnold, who
heads the scallop research project
from the Florida Marine Research
Institute in St. Petersburg says
that "although the available data
certainly suggests that recruit-
ment has been poor during 99,"
he cautions us to "take these data
with a grain of salt," as they are
incomplete. He says they'll "know
more In a few months."

Workers-'



Get News.



On-Plan

Reeves Reviews

Bankruptcy Numbers.
Approximately 200 displaced
Florida Coast Paper Company
workers gathered in the Port St.
Joe High School Commons Area
Saturday to get "the word" on how
the bankruptcy deal impacts their
settlement with the company.
Workers representing all

three of the mill's unions, plus
other hourly and salaried employ-
ees joined together to hear a
report from the union president,
John Reeves. Reeves traveled to
Delaware last week and sat in on
'the bankruptcy hearings to decide
whether to accept Stone
Container Company's (a wholly
owned subsidiary of .Smurfit-
Stone Container Corporation)
plan to gain control of Florida
Coast Paper Company.
* Reeves had stated in the pre-
vious .week's ;issue- of The Star
that "the. union's attorneys and
Stone had agreed to a plan that
would pay .displaced Workers
more' 'than what the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court requires. The
flip side of that is that the figure is
alsomore than the 10% on the
dollar that most unsecured credi-
tors are receiving.
Outline of Employees
Settlement
Employees would receive
approximately 67% of 1999's
accrued (earned during 1998)
vacation pay. This is figured by
multiplying an employee's base
pay rate times 40 hours (work
week), times the number of weeks
of earned vacation time, times
.67.
For example, using $15 per
hour pay rate-$15 x 40 = $600 x
4 weeks vacation = $2,400 x .67 =
$1,608 received in vacation pay.
Reeves said Stone has
agreed to a negotiated settlement
with union attorneys to forgive
insurance premiums owed to
Florida Coast Paper Company.
Vested employees (five years
total service or' more) were
reminded that their pension plan
is guaranteed under the federal
retirement program.
Stone has indicated that
they would like to talk with
unions about a labor agreement
within four to six weeks. No hint
was given as to what significance.
if any, the talks would have.
It is also anticipated that a
severance package will be negoti-
ated with Stone in the near
future. Reeves said Smurflt-Stone

Do You Want




Jobs For Gulf?


Vote "Yes" For Tax Incentives

Referendum On March Ballot

One of the most important elections in Gulf County's history
could be held in just under two months. Every registered voter in
Gulf County will play a major role in its economic development.
Just putting it plain and simple, if Gulf is going to compete
for jobs we will have to have tax abatement/incentives. If we
don't. prospective companies are going to throw their anchors
out in areas that do provide incentives to lure them and their
jobs.
Gulf County commissioners and the Economic Development
Council are not interested in selling the farm to get these jobs.
They're in the process of devising a set of guidelines that ties any
incentives to the number of jobs created.
In other words, the more jobs they develop, the more incen-
tives they can get. If a company is interested in making a long
term commitment to Gulf County. then Gulf wants them and will
be willing to provide assistance.
In order to receive that assistance. the number of jobs, salary
package, and capital investment by the prospective company will
be weighed into the formula.
The incentive tools granted will be evaluated on a case by
case basis.
If a company is out to take advantage of our situation by
offering only a shallow promise and no significant jobs guaran-
teed-they are going to find out very quickly they need to look
somewhere else.
"Do you have tax abatement?" That's the question that Gulf
County Economic Development Council Chairman Kenny Wood
said was one of the first points of inquiry out of the mouths of
prospects seeking information about locating in Gulf County.
True enough. voters failed to pass the referendum when it
appeared before them on the November 1998 general election
ballot. Gulf County commissioners and the Economic
Development Council blame themselves for that defeat. saying
they failed to get the message out as to just how important the
question is to the future of the county.
Don't take my word for it though. Ask around-find out what
successful communities are doing to attract and keep jobs for
residents in their neck of the woods. Tax abatement certainly
isn't the only thing. but it is one of the most important pieces of
the puzzle.
Mark March 14th on your calendar-it could be your best
opportunity to say "YES" to jobs in Gulf County!

Bruce Willis Better Take His Geritol and Wind His Watch


A few weeks ago, I noted,
"Wouldn't you know it, just about
the time I learn how to spell mil-
lennium, the darn thing's over!,"
I may have a reprieve. Could:
it be that just maybe we celebrat-
ed the millennium one year early?
Dick Lamberson, retired
NAPA tycoon, was in The Star
office a few days ago for the pur-
pose of revealing this revelation.
For those of you that don't know
Dick, he sometimes has a tenden-
Cy to think with portions of his
brain that most of the rest of us
leave at peace.
Let me make it plain-that is
not a bad.thing.
Many tinies, in fact, this'
thought process can make inter-
esting fetter for thought.
This revolution concerning
the millennium makes perfectly
good sense, to me I think.
Dick says, "Did they start the
first millennium with year "0" .
No, it started with year number


Wesley Ramsey's

ETAOIN SHRDLU

This Week's Edition Written by
Willie Ramsey /


Bearing in mind that the first
year was most likely to have
begun as year one (0001), add
1000 years to that and you have
'1001 ... [You've got the picture.]
So, if Dick's logic is correct,
the first millennium celebration
actually started at the stroke of
midnight after the 365th day of
the year 1000. Add one thousand
more years and the second mil-
lennium will begin at the stroke of
midnight on December 31st of the
year 2000.
We're one full year ahead of
ourselves.
We Can Celebrate Again


This is good news, we can cel-
ebrate the millennium all over
again; only this time 'round, we
won't have to contend with inter-
ference from the Y2K bug. This
will allow us to concentrate our.
efforts.
There is one major problem
with all this. nonsense though.
The doomsayers are going to have
a field day now that Dick's let th'e
cat out of the bag.
Three More Movies
I predict there will be at least
three more Armageddon movies if
word gets out about this little
glitch in time keeping.
Poor ol' Bruce Willis with


'everything he's. been through in
those Diehard movies I'm not
sure he'll. be able to endure.. two
Armageddon movies in as many
years. .
I haven't seen Armageddon,
but I know Bruce took a lickin'
and kept on tickin'. He always
does.
Someone did ask me several
weeks ago what I thought about
all the Armageddon publicity, and
if I thought it was real. I had to
explain that it was scriptural and
that the same scripture also says
we have a choice about whether
or not we want to be there .
That's an easy choice for me.
Now 'that Dick has opened
this can of worms, who knows
what else might crawl out. I can
visualize the title of the new
movie now.. "Armaaeddon I--
The Lamberson Theory."
I wonder if 'he might receive
royalties for this brainstorm .
Nahhh...
Biohic Man Recovering


Wesley (Daddy) had surgery
Tuesday at Gulf Coast Medical
Center. Dr. Samuel Combs
replaced the' knee joint in his
"good' leg and now he is on the
road toward recovery.
It's my understanding he, will
have to spend at least a few weeks
in rehab, before he'll be able to do
the jig again. '
Speaking of a jig, Jiggs
Zingarelli was in the shop the
other day. At 84 years young, he
still manages to do most every-
thing he wants to do-including
running the Franklin Press in
Apalachicola.
Jiggs went to Oklahoma and
visited with his son, Dr. Bill
."Todd" Zingarelli during the
Christmas holidays. He went
duck hunting with his son one
day, then got the family discount
on knee replacement surgery the
next day.
Jiggs is doing real well, in
fact, I forgot that he had the
surgery until after he left the


shop. There, was no limp or favor-
ing of his remanufactured leg-
nothing to remind me other, than
my own memory that he had the
surgery.
isn't it truly :amazing wAat
can be done in modern medicine
today?
Let's Rebuild and
Reactivate Them
Back in the old days whei a
horse "wore out" they would turn
him out to pasture for the rest of
his years. .
With all this modern medical
technology available to'us today,
it looks like we can just rebuild
those worn out body parts, then
reactivate those worn down
beings.
Then again. I'm beginning to
get the impression at least one of
these "old horses" is in hopes of
being able to enjoy the pasture
just a little bit more after this
most recent tune-up.

We. talked about church arid
young people. I don't think Sports
illustrated :reported that Jay's
father taught Sunday school for
years. \Ve talked of the spiritual
nature of some of the players.
God and, baseball. I tell 'oii,
you can't get any closer to Heaven
than that!
What a. nice, polite, decent,
reirefresh i.ng, honest, straightforward
young man!.
When you hear of the next pro-
fessional athlete that jumps bail or
runs off the road at three a.rri.. or
general' acts like an uncoko'h.
spoiled rotten, riih brat .. you
also think of Jay Bell. THEY ARE
NOT ALL LIKE THAT!!! .
He hit his drive on eighteen
right down the middle 'about 'twvo
counties long. When we finally got
to his ball I said (somewhat in
awe), "Nice shot, Jay."
"It's.ithat blind hog thing."
Did I mention modest? .
The players donate their time
for the Fred Waters ,Clinic. They
spent all day Saturday on the field
with the young aspiring players
from, the Pensacola area. I saw a
lot of Jay Bells in action that day!
What I didn't see was ary national
news media flocking to cover this
story! It makes you wonder how
many other players are doing gbod
things in. other communities all
across our country that we fail to
hear about .
That night, after the banquet, I
stayed till they were sweeping .up
,.the floorand .turning offthe lights,
,not wanting g .thqse unbelievable
two'days tend..Guess who was
still there, talking baseball, posing
for pictures, signing, autographs
with a smile and a kind word for all

Here's where I intrude a little
in your life-don't give up on base-
ball, please.don't give up--as long
as there are guys like Jay Bell out
there-we've got a chance!
I'm still a St. Louis Cardinal
fan to the core. .. but I'm keeping
an eye this year on the D'baeks.
And my new favorite player Wvho
takes his place along side stan The
Man, Kenny Boyer. Julian'Javier,
Ernie Banks. .
This was irnuch more than. a
day of golf! He renewed my laith in
, a game and its players that I have
cherished,, defended and-honored
since along ago day in 1952 when
my Father rolled.an old horse hide
ball across 'that hardwood floor .

motion.
*Commissioner Horton also
questioned one officer being on
duty from time to time, stating
that he felt two should be.on duty
at all times. Chief Leffert
explained that 99% of the time
two officers are on d u tv. but occa-
sionally, because of vacation
schedules and sickness, it does
happen.
He suggested that either the
commission .would have to pay
the overtimeirate to call in anoth-

(which is currently funded under
the C.O.P.S. grant). The board
decided to hire another officer.

in Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka,
Thank You PSJ nursing homes, and other local
agencies. We have also donated to


The First United Methodist
Church operates the Care Closet
located at Fourth and Long
Avenue. We provide good clean
used clothing at very reasonable
prices for the people of Port St.
Joe. All clothes are .50t, acces-
sories and shoes are .25t.
Since we started the Care
Closet in 1997, we have sorted
and processed 30,000 items of
clothing donated by the wonderful
people of Port St. Joe. Most of the
clothing is placed in the Care
Closet for sale; others are given to
H.R.S., health department,
schools, nursing homes, Goodwill,
and other needy individuals in
our community.
The Care Closet has had sales
of $11,250 from these donations
of clothing. Of those sales, it has
given back to the community of
Port St. Joe over $5,000. We have
donated this money to H.R.S.,
health department, schools, both


victims of ilood and fire damage in
our community.
The Care Closet has been an
outstanding success. The reason
we have been so successful is the
donations of clothing we received
from all you people. The Care
Closet would like to thank all the
people who have made contribu-
tions of clothing.
Without these donations we
could not continue to operate a
Care Closet in Port St. Joe. We
knew the Care Closet was very
much needed by the community,
especially with the mill being shut
down.
Again, thank you for all of the
clothing you have given in the
past. Keep those donations com-
ing in the future, so we may better
be able to serve you, the caring
people of Port St. Joe.
God bless you all,
Vic LaFerle, 1st UMC Care Closet


about people. I see my role as pro-
moting Northwest Florida's
strengths and raising our-profile
in order ,to create a climate for
growth. But one thing, I learned-
no one person can generate eco-
nomic development. To achieve
responsible growth, there must be
a collaborative effort."
"At St. Joe, our approach is to
'work, closely with local govern-
ments, businesses and leaders,"
said Rummell.
"Neal will represent St. Joe as
both a leader and a responsible
partner in Northwest Florida's
future: We have seen through
Alabama's experience, the impor-,
tance of building a regional effort
to bring higher skilled and higher
paying jobs to a region. I believe
we can accomplish .that objective
all across Northwest Florida." .

Rouse Reports On

Affordable Housing

Committee Meeting
The Affordable Housing
Committee met1 Friday, January
14th, with representatives from
the St. Joe Corporation, Arvida,
USDA Rural Development, Three
Rivers Housing Organization,
:Capital. 'City Bank, the Chamber
of Commerce, and Legal Services.
The committee's! one and only
agenda is to bring affordable
homes to Port St. Joe. In an effort
to help the citizens of Port St. Joe,
Forrest Boone .of Three Rivers
Housing interjected, "If we can
,come up with 15 qualified buyers,
his organization would be willing
to build 'affordable homes' in St.
Joe."
Clay Smallwood, of the St.
Joe Corporation, stated "The St.
Joe Corporation will., not be. a
stumbling block to affordable
housing in St. Joe. If the above
mentioned quota is met, the St.
Joe Corporation will sell that par-
ticular tract of land (Avenue A
and Highway 71, below the rail-
road tracks) at less than market
value." ,
"I, the. chairperson., of the'
city's housing committee, think
that's a pretty fair deal. I'd like to
thank the St. Joe Corporation,
and Arvida representatives for
taking time out to meet with us. I
believe this is just one of a whole
list of positive changes happening
for Port St Joe," commented
Jenatta Rouse after the meeting.

information, or for applications,

Workers
(From Page 1)
has agreed to pay former employ-
ees of other mothballed mills the
industry standard (severance
package-one week's pay per year
of employment up to a maxitium
of 26 weeks).
Retirees' insurance -has
been canceled which qualifies the.
policy holders for other programs.
All contracts with Florida
. Coast Paper Company are termi-
nated or transferred to the new
owner with the finalization of the
plan. .
Bankruptcy Judge Peter J.
Walsh signed the letter of confir-
mation for the plan on January
6th,' and the plan was. to have
gone into effect on Tuesday,
January 18th.
Contrary to published reports
S.'Reeves said the union members
are not negotiating to purchase
the mill.
He did say that efforts were
being made to bring the City of
Port St. .Joe, Gulf County,
Enterprise Florida, Chamber of
Commerce, the three local
unions, and other involved parties
to u n i their effort and present
an economic package to Smurfit-
Stone that would hopefully-entice
them to at least consider restart-
ing the mill.
Optimism 'about any pros-
pects for the mill to reopen is
almost non-existent though, since
,W. J. Smurfit reportedly stated, in
a trade magazine that the Florida
Coast Paper Company mill will
not run again.
Taxes On The Way
Port, St. Joe Mayor Frank Pate
announced during the commis-
sion's regular meeting Tuesday
evening that he had been told the
check for taxes for Gulf County
governmental agencies and the
City of Port St. Joe should be
mailed on Wednesday.
Taxing authorities will receive
100% of the taxes owed to them
as a priority claim. Most unse-
cured creditors will only receive
104 on the dollar'.for what is due
to them.

making it possible for patrons to
sit down and start a program
immediately; they do not have to
check out a CD for each program
at the desk.
You might question what
could happen to so many pro-
grams if the wrong buttons were
pushed. Couldn't we lose a pro-
gram or cause irreparable harm
to the computer?
As explained by Ms; Stroisch
and Ms. Confar, librarians do not
have to worry, as patrons cannot
accidentally or intentionally harm
the software. The. computers only
allow the user access to the soft-
ware programs themselves; they
have no access to the inner work-
ings of the computers.
In addition to the computers,
a four volume desk reference set
is available. that' offers step by
step instructions for new users. If
the reference cannot answer a
patron's question, librarians have
a help desk they -can call to get
personal assistance.

Giveaway to
Ielp Citizen
With Cancer
By Jessica Summers
Wewahitchkans may or may
not realize the agony of enduring
treatment that, for all the good it
does, causes twice as much pain.
Nor do most of them know the
horror that accompanies living
ivith the knowledge that each day
pbuld be your last.
This has not stopped the citi-
zens of Wewahitcka. In the most
recent of many ffmnd-raising
4 attempts .for people in need, the
Llons Club in conjunction with
Wewa Automotive and Body are
sponsoring a giveaway for a 1998
Dodge Neon to benefit the Mark
Gay Fund.
S.'iOnly 110. tickets are to be
sold, each for $100. The drawing
is'-.set for; February 14th, where
the car will be given to the winner,
all fees paid.
Mark Gay has been a resident
of;Wewa his .entire life. He was
raised in Wewa and he built.his
family there as well. He worked at
the mill for 20 years before he was
laid off in 1998. Only two months
before he learned that he 'has
acute lymphocytic leukemia.
Leukemia is a form of cancer
that represents about 10 percent
of all cancers. It affects the bone
mairrow and the lymph tissue. The
disease has no known cause and
also, at this time, has no cure.
Acute lymphocytic leukemia
is one of the four major leukemia
't:es. It is more often found in
children than 'in adults, but
,accounts for 10 to 20 percent of
:adult leukemias. Mark's leukemia
;is classified as acute, because of
:the rapid manifestation of the dis-

A Mysterious Cemetery In Dalkeith


by Caroline Hunsley
Monday the 17th, Martin
'Luther King, Jr. Day, was an
appropriate day for visiting what
has been known for the last 35-40
years as Robertson Cemetery in
Dalkeith. Now there is some ques-
tion as to whether that name is
accurate. I
.On Monday's tour of the site,


Don Butler, Gulf County Chief
Administrator; Roy Lee Carter,
Gulf County Extension Agent;
Rev. Leon Jones, Moderator for
the New Gulf Coast Missionary
Baptist Association; Nathan
'Peters, Jr., Gulf County Commis-
sioner for District 4; and John
Stanley, Jr., Gulf County. Com-
missioner for District 1 viewed the


various headstones marking the
graves of the deceased.
Though the headstones need
to be cleaned before they can be
easily read, one of the headstones
did reveal the last name Robin-
son. This led the group to ques-
tion whether Robertson is an
accurate name for the cemetery.
In their letter granting per-
mission to the Gulf County
Commission to have an access
road built to the cemetery, the
New Gulf Coast Missionary
Baptist Association also refers to
the cemetery as Robinson Ceme-
tery.
The cemetery probably dates
back to .the 1920's, when Dal-
keith was considered to be a black
community, but two headstones
were found with dates :in the
1970's.
Located just off CR381, the
cemetery is situated approximate-
ly 50 yards behind the site of the
old St. Luke Baptist Church.
Brambles, grasses and small trees
currently envelope the site, but
the concrete steps of the church
can still be seen beneath the
growth,
Currently the site is accessed
through an adjacent parcel of
land by permission of the owner.
The Gulf County Board of
Commissioners recently approved
,a survey of the land containing
the cemetery, and hope to begin


clearing for the new road soon.
Once the access is in, it will be
easier to begin clearing the site of
the old church and to start on the
restoration of the cemetery.


If you know any facts about
this cemetery, or you know of
anyone who does, please call The
Star at 227-1278 and let us know.
Your help will be,appreciated.


For the deal of your life,
see me! ,

REDUCING THE COST OF
HEALTH CARE

You have it in your power to hold down
health care costs. Personal living habits have a pro-
found effect on your health. If you ate properly, got ,
adequate rest and exercised regularly, there would
not be such a great need for health technology.
It is less expensive to modify your behavior
and remain-healthy than to return you to health
after the damage has been done. Start off the New
Year by resolving to take better care of your body.

Governor Bush's Budget Helps DOC Fight Crime

Initiatives Will Empower Victims, Supervise Offenders, and Enhance Officers' Pay


-By Florida Department, of
Corrections Secretary
Michael W. Moore
On Monday, January 10. I
was honored to join Lieutenant
Governor Frank Brogan and
members of the Florida
Legislature to unveil portions of
the Department of Corrections
budget request aimed at increas-
ing public safety and empowering
victims of crime..
The initiatives are part of
Governor Jeb Bush's 2000-2001
crime-fighting budget recommen-
dations to the Legislature. Long-
sought "special risk" retirement
for correctional probation officers
(CPOs), pay raises for correcutonal
officers and' CPOs, expanded
tracking of dangerous offenders
and initiatives for crime victims
are all included in the governor's
budget.
The ongoing reorganization of
the prison" system, which saves
S SIO million in annual operating
costs, is partly responsible for the
administration's ability to offer
raises in officer salaries.
Reorganization has been a chal-
lenge to implement, but it has
helped streamline the agency,
which has saved money that can
now go towards essential correc-
tions issues.
State Senator Virginia Brown-
Walte (District 10). chairwoman of
the Senate Cnminal Justice
Committee, said the raises and
benefits package will be welcomed
by the Legislature. "I commend
and join the administration for its
strong support for the men and
women ,who have chosen this
tough profession. I look forward to
supporting these needed propos-
als in the Senate."
Officer Salaries
Appropriate staffing is one of
the most important tools in oper-
ating safe and secure prisons and
ensuring proper supervision of
released offenders. This adminis-
trauon wants to ensure that the
men and women who deal with
criminals on a daily basis.
whether inside prison walls or
under community supervision, be
properly compensated for protect-
ing public safety.
The governor's budget recom-
,, mends to the Legislature (subject
to collective bargaining negotia-
tions) 819.9 million in raises
ranging from S600 to S 1.500 for a


majority of the state's correctional
officers and CPOs.
"Special risk" retirement will
allow all CPOs to retire earlier in
their careers, while nearly dou-
bling their retirement benefits.
This provision will finally and for-
mally recognize the special risks
inherent in a CPO's job. Special
risk retirement is a benefit that
has been sought by CPOs for
more than two decades..
Most probation officers are on
the streets risking their lives in
unarmed 'confrontation -with
felons. The majority of CPOs work
in dangerous environments with
little or no back-up. They deserve
special risk retirement based on
the unique risks Inherent in their
jobs.
State Representative George
Crady (District 12). a member of
the House Corrections Commit-
tee, praised the department for
making the special risk provision
a top priority in the budget.


are 'expected to reduce, staff,
turnover, thus enhancing public
safety for the citizens of Florida.'
We project first-year savings of
$1.2 million in employee person--
nel costs.
Correctional officer pay will
be raised from an average of
$24,903 (in the first year of
employment) to $25,500. Officers.
with three-plus years of experi-
ence will receive a pay increase
from. ,an average of $26,064 to
$27,865. CPO salary will be'
increased from an average of
827.365 to a base of 829.250.
This Is a one-time pay
increase to establish a competi-
tive baseline salary level, elimi-
nating the Inequities in the pre-
sent system. The pay plan will
reduce turnover and assist the
agency in retaining first through
third year officers. The vast
majority of the agency's certified
employees will receive an Increase
based on this plan.
We propose the establishment

of baseline salary levels for both
the correctional officer and CPO
series, effective July 1, as follows:


Correctional Officers:
Employed less than I yr.:
Employed I 2 years:
Employed. 2 3 years:
Employed over 3 years:
Corr. Officer Sergeant:
Corr. Officer Lieutenant:
Corr. Probation Officer:
Corr. Probation Sr. Offr.:
Corr. Probation Speclst.:
Corr. Probation Spvsr.:
Corr. Probation Sr. Spvsr:


Michael Moore
Secretary of Corrections

"Special risk is a benefit that
probation officers and I have been
seeking for years." Crady said.
"The pay raises for correctional
officers will reduce turnover and
save money. This administration
understands the needs of the cor-
rections community."
The pay increases are based
on an officer's rank and length of
service. The intent is to provide
officers the same pay for the same
functions and responsibilities.
The competitive baseline salaries


825,500
$26.265
$27,053
827,865
$30,900
S33,000
$29.250
$32,250
835,000
838,000
$42,000


If an officer is currently earn-
ing above these baseline salaries,
his or her pay will remain
unchanged. This budget proposal
is for the base salary, which is
aimed at helping recruitment and
reducing turnover. We have found
that if correctional officers remain
with DOC for at least three years,
the likelihood of long-term reten-
tion increases dramatically.
I have also directed my staff
to actively study ways to address
the salary Issues of those correc-
tional officers and CPOs not
affected by the proposed plan,
such as pay for seniority.
Offender Supervision
Increasing offender supervi-
sion is a key goal of the
Department of Corrections. One
initiative seeks a change in the'.


law that would- require mandatory
supervision for each inmate
released from prison.
This would allow DOC to
expand supervision of inmates
after their release until they have
satisfied the 'full length of their
sentences. regardless of their
offense.
i or example; if an offender
were released after serving 12
,years of a 15-year sentence, this
initiative would mandate the
department to supervise him for
Sthe remaining three years, even if.
Probation was not court-ordered
at the time of sentencing. This law
would apply only to offenders who
commit crimes on or after the day
the new statute is enacted.
Global Positioning Satellite
Expanding the use of the GPS
(Global Positioning Satellite) sys-
tem to track the most serious
offenders is another Improvement
DOC hopes to make. GPS is state-
of-the-art technology that allows
'us to track an offender's move-
ments with great precision.
The offender wears an elec-
t'ironic ankle bracelet, allowing
constant monitoring of his loca-
tion to determine his compliance
.-with probation.
The system also allows DOC
I'to electronically "rope off' areas
such as the vicUim's residence and
place of employment, or even a
school or nursing home, when an
offender violates these bound-
aries. We will continue to use con-
ventional radio frequency devices
to track less serious offenders.
Victims' Rights
In addition to seeking
increased supervision of offend-
ers, I want to make victims' rights
a top priority for DOC. We seek to
empower crime victims, our key
stakeholders, by keeping them
Informed of the whereabouts and
status of released offenders.
Victims of crime registered
with DOC receive notification by
phone, as well as in writing, when
an offender is to be released.
The governor's budget
includes a proposal to Invest S5.4
million In monitoring offenders.
providing ar- additional 1,400
additional GPS units to monitor
2,800 offenders on community
control. This proposal mainly tar-
gets sex offenders and other
predatory criminals.'


Through a toll-tree victim service
hotline (877-8VICTIM) victims
and the public can obtain the lat-
est information on the status of
any inmate.
The system. has notified
almost 9,000 victims since
August 1999, managing more
than 85,000 incoming and outgo-
ing calls.
Last year. we unveiled VINE
(Victim Information and Notifi-
cation Everyday). a 24-hour toll-
free hotline (877-VINE-4FL) that
prbactively notifies crime victims
of the whereabouts of offenders.
Members of the public may also

.


wf


register for notification by calling
the toll-free number.
The governor's budget pro-
vides $1.4 million to implement
automated notification statewide,
so crime victims will be able to
find out information about.pris-
oners in local jails in addition to
those in the state prison system.
The statewide system will also
notify law enforcement and the
courts of the status of the offend-
er. Statewide'implementation will
-benefit city and county govern-
ments, local, law 'enforcement
agencies, the public and crime
victims. : '

Among the reading incentive
programs used at \VES is the
Accelerated, Reader Program (AR).
With AR, students make their
own choice of books from thou-
sanids 6'o o6ftstanding titles on the
'AR'liSt. Students then read the
books at their own pace and take
a. computerized. n-ultiple-choice
test.
The program tells the student
how many ; questions were
answered correctly. It 'provides
, the aJsiwers for miis-ed-questions
''and awards points. Reading
points are based on" the book's
point value and the' number of
.correct answers.
Most classes also participate
in the'"Plzza Hut Book-It! Reading
Incentive Program,. Book-It! moti-
vates .children to read more by
rewarding them, foi-their reading
accomplishments. It also helps
pre-readers' develop a positive,
- enthusiastic attitude toward
learning to read. '
At the onset of the Book-It!
program, the teacher sets month-
ly reading goals for each child in
the class. When the oal- i-, met,
the child receives'a coupon for a
free pizza from Pizza Hut. If all the
children in a class mnieet their
,reading goals,- the. entire class is
treated to a pizza party.

In addition to these widely
recognized incentives, many WES,
teachers employ, others. Some.
have students print their name,
book title, and author of every
'book read on a strip of paper
which becomes part of a paper
chain..
At the end of the school year,
,these chains will be joined togeth-
er. so that students dan' better
appreciate their accomplishment.'
Second grade teacher Tracy
Bowers sponsored a contest' in
her classroom ,from October 1
through December 16..The "book-
-worm" reading, the most books
during that period was rewarded
with a $25 dollar cash prize and a
trophy.. This year's winner was
Baylen Price. Young. Baylen read
an astounding 400 books!
Encourage your child to read.

Recently, Gulf Coast

Two of GCCC's college advisors
were here to help any students

many. They had several different
things for students to take with
them. We hope they will. come
back to 'WHS soon- -for another
visit.,
The students at WHS had the
privilege of hosting the Hiippo- "
- dronrie Theater on Tuesdavyof last
weekl. It was an amazing show '
performed -for both middle school .
and high school students.
The play' which they per-':
formed was titled '"To Be Or Not,,
To Be That's Two Questions."
The play was about two young
acting hopefuls who tried out for
this new play. The ever-popular
and mysterious director consis-
tentl' called the. stage manager to
notify her of changes in the set-
tin g 6orstylethe play would hold."
The cast kept the students in
stitches through the whole play. It
was enjoyed by all that attended,
We hope to have more of these in
the future.
As a matter of fact, we'will be
hosting "'La.sr ''Vaudeville" 'in
.February. Students will see the
show in the morning, and then'
the 'c6mrinunity will be invited; for-,
an evening performance that

meant When the mill was shut
down; there was no smell, but
also little money to buy groceries.

among those whq are being saved
and among those who are perish-

,death leading to death, and to
others the aroma of life leading to
