For Armed

Burglars

'According to a Gulf County
Sheriffs Office report, at approxi-
mately 6:00 a.m. (CT) last Sunday
morning, January 30th, three
armed men forced their way into a
SWewahitchka home.
After entering the home,
located off the old Panama high-
way, the trio struckl two victimss
on the head. While one of the vic-
tims was struggling with the'
intruders, the suspects' gun was
fired through the ceiling of :the
dwelling.-
Following the struggle. the
suspects stole a wallet and purse
from the occupants of the home
and fled the scene.
The burglars are described as.
three black males dressed in
black clothing. K-9 units from
Gulf Correctional Institute were
called to the scene, and were able
to track the suspects through a
wooded area until they reached a
paved roadway.
It is believed that the sus-
pects got into a car at that loca-
tion and fled the area.
The Gulf County Sheriff's
Office is continuing its investiga-
tion of the break-in and assault.
'Sheriff Frank McKeithen has
asked that anyone with informa-
tion on this incident please con-
,tact the GCSO at 227-1115 or
639-5717.

been approved, and the second
one has a very high probability to
be approved.
The board had unanimously
(5-0) agreed to submit Florida
Recreation. Development Assis--
tance Program (FRDAP) grants for .
major improvements at .Frank
Pate, Jr. Park and Forest Park
South (between 16th Street and
20th Street).
The Parks Advisory Board
drew up the application package
for both projects,. then public
hearings were held. The city
received no objections for either
project.
Kennedy told the board that'
the Forest Park South project had
received 99 of a possible 100
points from the state, and was
noted as one of the top FRDAP
grant applications in Florida.
Furthermore, the Frank Pate.'Jr.
Park project graded out at 94
points, and was also very proba-
ble for grant funding.
He was requesting that the
board go forward with survey,
needs for the Frank Pate. Jr. Park
project so that dredge and fill per-
mits can be sought for ,work on
the city boat ramp and channel at
the park. This needs to be done so
the city can be ready to start on
the work as soon as grant funds
are a'varded.
The board did agree to do the
survey work, but not before dis-
cussing the Forest Park South
project first.
Commissioner Damon McNair
'.told the board he was not in favor';
of the Forest Park South project.
stating he felt the city had more
parks than they could take care of
now, and that the city could give
the money to their employees. He
also said he felt priority should be
placed on the Frank Pate, Jr. Park
project.
Kennedy explained that most
of the 75/25 matching grant
funds would be furnished
through In-kind service. The city
would pay only 87,500 cash for
the 8150.000 grant and do
S30.000 in in-kind service.
Mayor Frank Pate said that if
.there were concerns they should
have been expressed six months
ago, before the committee put all
the work into the project.
Commissioner Jerry Barnes
said the Forest Park South project
was not his 'priority either He
expressed a need to go ahead with
the work at the boat landing.
Kennedy explained that the
city could receive two FRDAP
grants per year and the state
ranked and awarded the pro-
jects-both of which appear very
probable to get financed.
The Forest Park South project
includes refurbishing the park
already in existence at the inter-
section of 16th and 17th Streets,
the additions of a half-mile exer-
cise/nature trail, a fishing lake
and pier, playground areas and

Plans for Annual
G.C. Chamber of
Commerce Dinner


The Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce has scheduled its
annual dinner for Friday, March
3rd, at 7:00 p.m.
Executive Director Diane
Scholz said this year's event will
be held at Butler's Restaurant
and will feature a choice between
seafood, steak, or chicken at a
cost of $15.
Installation of officers and the
awarding of the Lifetime Achieve-
ment Award will be among the
featured events. Scholz said any-
one wishing to make nominations
for the Lifetime Achievement
Award or for t three open board
seats should call the Chamber
office with nominations.
The 15th of February will be'
the cut-off date for nominations.
Chamber board members are
in the process of finalizing
arrangements for the guest
speaker. This will be announced
in next week's edition of The Star.

coming revolution in entrepre-

transferring society economically,
socially and spiritually.

A Gulf County jury failed to
'reach a verdict last week in -an
arson case stemming from a 1998
fire at Julie's Restaurant in Port

To Hub Empire


62 Years After Alfred I.

duPont's Proclamation
In the December 30, 1999 edition of The Star, we did our annu-
al "Year In Review" story. Coupled with that article was a repro-
duction of the April 8,- 1938 Progress Edition of the' newspaper.
"Mill Now In Operation" was the lead article and, in fact, the
paper was printed on some of the very first paper produced by the
new giant paper machines..
The article contained one particular paragraph that really
caught my attention.
"Establishment of the paper mill in Port St. Joe was part of the
long term plan of the late Alfred I. duPont for 'the rehabilitation of
Northwest Florida ... and was to be the hub of a vast industrial
empire."
That was 62 years ago, and that vision of a vast industrial
empire never fully panned out. Gulf County did fair pretty well
though, with the mill and support industries being the driving
force behind the local economy.
Now here we are in the year 2000 and the economic spark plug
is gone. One thing does remain the, same as we enter a new mil-
lennium-we are still in the hub of what could be a renewal of
Alfred I. duPont's dream.
Gulf County lies just about right smack dab in the center of the
bulk of the St. Joe Company's undeveloped land holdings.
Furthermore, their actions over the past few months have demon-
strated a commitment to economic development in our region.,
The company has worked favorable' land deals with Nekton
Dive Cruise Ships and PristineOyster.com which will help net
nearly 200 jobs, once the two companies and one small spin-off
company are complete. St. Joe also pitched in nearly two miles of
road right-of-way and some widening work to sweeten the pot with
Nekton.
They've,also committed to continue operating the Apalachicola
Northern Railroad, while a new customer base is developed. This
is extremely important, especially when you take into account that
three' other industrial operations depend, upon that service-
Arizona Chemical, Premier Services, and General Chemical.
The most recent development indicator was the hiring of Neal
Wade as the company's vice-president in charge of economic devel-
opment.
Gulf countians can identify with Wade's motto: "My job is to
create jobs." Wade is considered to be one of the best in the busi-
ness and brings a list of credentials from his former job in
Alabama that leads one to believe he's pretty good at his job, too.
Mercedes-Benz. Honda. Boeing, anid IPSCO Steel are just a few.
of the big nainmes he can drop when speaking about companies' he
helped bring-to Alabama.
-Keep your eyes open, we may begin real soon to get a taste of
what Mr. duPont's dream can do for Gulf County-62 years after
the proclamation.,

Orange Ribbons Mean Don't Cut
Residents and" visitors riding the roads along C-30 have expressed
concern about the orange ribbons being placed around palm trees adja-
cent to the roadway.
District 5 County Commissioner Warren Yeager eased those concerns
somewhat Tuesday when he explained that the: ribbons were 'placed
around the trees to tell Department of Transportation (DOT) work crews
.not to cut the trees.
Yeager explained that DOT has setback requirements for trees and
obstructions, and the trees are being marked to save because they are
closer than the setback rules allow.
'He said DOT officials have agreed to leave the trees in place, but will
likely use guard rails or speed limit reductions for safety purposes. The
state recently agreed to a request from Gulf County tq take over mainte-
nance of C-30 and bringing the right-of-way to its specifications is part of
the transition. [See Photo At Right]

he said in the advertisement whs,'
"I don't smoke myself." You think"
about that for a guy hawkiig"'

on to say under his picture, "If you
don't smoke-you could look like:

He would insist the "charac-'

one to know one." He would have.
to have some Cherokee blood. "You'.,
have to be part Indian! to: prof

be partial to chili. "The hotter the
peppers, the better."
Will would prefer the
"imposter" fly to all his engage2--
ments. "The' next war we get into,"'
we'd better be looking up."
He'd cringe if the guy had any'

Calvin Coolidge didn't do nothing

< He had on a "Will Rogers' For
President" button.- A notion that
was broached several times during
Will's lifetime. One he quickly
passed off. He was more interested
in "honest" work.
But I tell-you what, with his
genuine love for "common folks,",
hin deep abiding faith in the big
normall" majority to do right, his.
inherent belief in the greatness of
this nation, his world wide per-

got running today.
Will would be a breath of fresh

He'd throw in some badly needed

senior drivers become more'aware
of, and to cope with. hazards',on

term health. When it comes to
investing, you and your portfolio
can benefit from an annual fiscal
examination to, keep a finger on
tlre pulse of your financial health.
Reviewing your investments'
performance for-the past year is a
good way to measure how well
your portfolio strategy is meeting
your financial objectives. And
gdining a perspective on how your
portfolio performs over time will
help you make well-informed
investment decisions about the
future.
Reviewing your portfolio and
its performance for the past year
also enables you to analyze your
overall goals in light of any
changes that may have occurred-
iIO your personal or financial situ-
ation. As you get older, your goals
nray shift from increasing annual
disposable income, to saving for a
child's education, to ensuring a
comfortable retirement. These
changes should spur a review of

remains current with your needs.
Undertaking an annual per-
formance review requires the right
tools and information. You will
need to have a statement showing
your portfolio composition and
value at the beginning of the year,
a record of any withdrawals or
deposits, including dividends and
interest, earned, records, includ-
ing purchase price, of any invest-
ments acquired during the period,
a listing of all commissions and
fees paid throughout the year, and
a complete record of your portfo-
lio's composition and value at the
end of the year. By compiling rnd
analyzing this information, you
can develop an annual report card'
for your, portfolio.
Once you have the informa-
tion you, need to assess your
investment performance. review
your results with a qualified.
financial advisor. A financial advi-
sor can provide perspective on-
how well your portfolio performed
relative to the broader market, as
well as offer insight into the types
of investments that might best
meet your financial objectives.
One major brokerage firm,
Prudential Securities, puts all the.
necessary portfolio performance
information together for every
investor with $5,000 or .more
invested with the firm. 'In their
annual Investment Performance
Review, mailed to clients at the
end of January.
Prudential Securities summa-
rizes account income, apprecia-
tion or .depreciation ,for the
previous year, as well 'as, total
return for the year, measured by a
dollar-weighted formula' The for-
mula used ensures' that the
impact of additions or with-
drawals of cash or securities, as
. well as commissions paid, are
included, in the overall rate of
return.
Using this type of annual
report card, you can compare the'
performance of your overall port-
wfolio th general market indica-
tors, factoring in your tolerance'
for risk. In general. keeping ba tight
reinn on risk also dampens the rate
of return.
If you find that your portfolio
has under performed 'the general
market as measured by a widely
followed indicator such as the
Standard -& Poor's 500 Index or a
major bond index,, you may want,
to review the mix of assets in your


portfolio.
Perhaps you have too little of
your long-term Investments in
equities. Maybe you have built up
a surplus of cash in your account
that has the potential to earn bet-
ter returns in a stock or bond
investment.
If your annual review shows
that you have greatly outper-
formed the board market indica-
tors, don't quit your day job just
yet. Take a moment to assess the
risk of your investments' and
make sure your portfolio is appro-
priately positioned to weather the

COW
PROBLEM OF
CONCERN TO
CITY
Deep Thought Is Given To
Eradication of Bovines Inside
City Limits

BARBECUE IS SUGGESTED

Costs Added to Regular One,
Dollar Impounding
Charge

.The. question of how to pre-
vent the city being taken over by
roving cows, steers and bulls
came up for debate before the
board of city commissioners at


their session Tuesday night and
occupied considerable time.
It seems that these bovine
creatures are becoming a public
nuisance and scaring the day-
lights out of women and children,
raiding garbage cans (heretofore
the exclusive right of homeless
and underfed canines), destroying
gardens .and otherwise conduct-
ing themselves in an obstreperous
and overbearing manner.
Commissioner T. H. Stone
suggested that the impounding
fee be set at $10 so that owners
would see to 'it that their cows
stayed at home.
Mayor J. L. Sharit, in dis-
cussing the matter said that if we
"get behind this heart and, soul I
believe we can get rid of them. I
suggest that we get someone with
a horse to patrol' the city by day
and night and bring the cattle in."
S The way it is now,"' said B. G.
McPherson, school principal, who
was at the meeting, "we can't keep
the boys In school-they're all out
working for the city, driving cows,,
to the pound at 25 cents a head."'
John O'Keefe suggested that
If a couple of the cows were used
as the piece de resistance at a
public barbeque it would be a big

incentive for owners to see that

It was finally decided to
amend the existing ordinance
providing for the impounding of
livestock, which sets a charge of,
one dollar for removing a cow
from the pound, to read "one dol-
lar and costs," and T. W. Davis
was named as poundmaster and

requested to phone the city hall.

A GOOD PICKER'
A kind-hearted old"lady saw a"
man standing in an alley, 'and she
noted that a number of men came
by, slipped him money and
passed on. Feeling sorry, she
slipped $2 in an envelope and,
wrote on a slip of paper: "Take
Courage."
The next day she was thun-
derstruck when the man came to-
her door, handed her $40 and
whispered: "Here's your split,
lady. Take Courage won at 20 to
1."

SHORTEST POEM?

MAIL SERVICE; IS NOW
MAKING TEST RUNS
With a view to speeding up
the present mail and express ser-
vice, the Apalachicola Northern
Railroad company has purchased
a modern gas-electric motor train
which has been making trial runs
this week and is expected to go
into regular service next week.
The two-car all-steel train is
powered with two 220-horsepow-
er Winton engines which drive a
huge generator to develop elec-
tricity for four 150-horsepower
motors which drive the train. It
gets approximately one mile to the
gallon of gasoline, which is con-
sidered as much cheaper operat-
Sing cost than a steam locomotive.
The front coach contains the
Power plant and passenger
accommodations, while the rear
coach carries mail and express.
A test run was made Monday
to Apalachicola and the new train
carried as passengers G. P. Wood,
Mayor J. L. Sharit, Robert
Bellows, George Gore, M. C.
SEdwards, Miss Opal Thomas.
, Miss Lyle Carter, Miss Brownie.
Carter, Richard Rector, H. D.
Marks and J. A. Smith. All report-!
ed, the new train as easy riding
and apparently capable of high
speeds. A second run was made
Tuesday to River Junction.

Nine Avenues
Get New Names

Proposal Voted Down
At Previous Meeting Is Passed
By Commission
An ordinance submitted at a
meeting of the board of city com-
missioners -on December 28 at
which Commissioner B. A.
Pridgeon was absent, changing
the names of nine of the city's
avenues, and which was voted
down at that time by the negative
vote of T. H. Stone, was again
brought up at the special session
yesterday and adopted ,by a two-
to-one vote. Mayor J. L. Sharit
and Commissioner Pridgeon being
for it and Commissioner Stone
against it.
The ordinance provides for
the changing of First avenue to
Baltzell avenue; Second avenue to
Monument avenue; Third avenue
to Reed avenue; Fourth avenue to
Williams avenue; Fifth avenue to
Long avenue; Sixth 'avenue to
Woodward avenue; Seventh
avenue to Park avenue; Eighth,
avenue to Gadsden avenue, and
Ninth avenue to Knowles avenue .
Changing the names of these ;
avenues is to do honor to. those
men whose names appear on the
monument here as signers of the
state constitution in 1838.

ORIGINATION OF
PERFORATIONS FOR
POSTAGE STAMPS

London Journalist
Instrumental in Producing
Present Method

How many persons have
heard of Charles Fowler? Very
few-perhaps none of our readers.
Yet the fact remains that he was
largely instrumental in doing the
public a great service.
Charles Fowler was a journal-
ist who lived in London about 100
years ago. He was what is known
as ;a "penny-a-line" and spent
most of his time reporting the out-
,break of fires. Because of this he
was nicknamed "Fire Fowler."
One evening, in the autumn
of 1837, he was busy in his little
office in Red Lion Square, getting
a number of letters ready for the
post and, no doubt, wishing he
were at home in bed. On his table


lay a sheet of postage stamps
which had to be cut, since, in
those days perforation had not',
come in. If Charles Fowler's scis-"
sors had not taken that particular
moment to hide themselves, or f.,-
he had been a less resourceful
person, we might not have been
writing about him now. Taking a
pin from the lapel of his coat he
made a line of pricks, between the
stamps, carefully tore them apart,
fixed them to the envelopes, and
thought no more about it.
But there chanced to be in
the office at the time a man by the'
name of Henry Archer who had an'
eye to business and who, having''
watched Fowler's pin at work;,
decided to invent a perforating-'
machine by means of which'
stamps, could quickly and easily';
be torn from the sheet.
A few weeks later Archer, with'
his machine, presented himself at
Somerset House and told the
'authorities what he had made.'
They were interested and appoint-
ed a select committee to go into
the matter and report back. In
their report the committee said.,,,
"that the perforating of postage,
stamps would be of great conve-,,:.
nience and advantage to the pub-,
lic," and recommended the gov-
ernment to purchase, the
machine.
And so it came about that the,
.pin. pricks of Charles Fowler.
brought 4000 pounds (about
$20,000) to the man who had
been looking on.

STHE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 3. 2000


With some help from our friends at the
American Veterinary Medical Associa-
tion, here are the answers to some ques-
tions about pets and, pet care..
Q. If a cat or a dog suffers from a mild
skiniproblem, would bathing the animal
with a mild shampoo offer some
relief?
A., A pet's skin problem
can ~rarely be treated with
shampoos alone. Take your, ,
pet to the veterinarian. The
doctor can diagnose the prob-
lem and prescribe an appropri-
ate course of treatment. If it is in-
dicated the doctor may prescribe
a medicated shampoo.
Q: Do cats and dogs get acne on their.
chins and how is it treated?
A.' Both cats and dogs can develop
acne.on their chins because of the numer-
ous-Sebaceous glands found in that area.
After examining the animal, the veterinar-
ian may suggest using an antibiotic and an
antibacterial shampoo. The doctor may
qT also suggest bathing the area with a solu-
tion of hydrogen peroxide twice a day to
keep the area clear of dirt and bacteria. To
prevent acne, be sure to keep your pet's
chin-clean.
Q. .There are lots of charts that tell
what people should weigh, 'but there
doesn't seem to be any for cats. How can
you find out if a cat is overweight? How,
dbo you help a cat to lose weight?
*"A. Before you put your cat-on a weight
loss program,, have the animal examined


. GOOD CREDIT
* BAD CREDIT
* BANKRUPTCY
* REPOSSESSION
' Follow t-h
irctrU^tin^f. 93


by your veterinarian. The doctor can de-
termine if the cat is overweight, what is
causing the problem, and if indicated,
help you establish a low calorie.diet for
your pet.
Q. The aroma of fresh
fish drives most cats wild.
ls raw fish good for cats?
A. Raw fish or uncooked
Si meat should not be served to
cats; both can carry diseases
or parasites. Deboned fish
should be baked, poached or
". steamed. If you want to pre-,
I vent a cat from developing a
preference for fish, only serve it as a
treat. '
Q. Newspaper and magazine articles
about home safety talk about the dangers
of children becoming tangled in window
blind cords, and in some cases even being.
strangled. Is this also a problem for-play-
ful-cats?
A. It can.be. All cords, including Vene-
tian blind, drape, and shade cords should
be tied up and out of the reach of pets and
children. It. is a good idea to "cat proof"
your home. Takea few minutes to 'try and
see your home from a cat's point-of-view.
Cats are curious, so be sure to remove or
put out of reach any items that might
cause harm to playful paws.'

Note: I cannot claim to write
void of bias. .I am Pro-WES, Pro-.
Warriors, Pro-Education, and Pro-
Kids. However. I do avoid personal
pronouns and try to remain on the
"newsy" side when reporting WES
events. For this column though., I
will abandon'that strategy and
write straight from my heart, for. I
feel that is the only way 'to
address the topic of this week's
column. .


The WES instructional staff
recently voted ,second grade
teacher Tracy Bowers the WES
"'Teacher of the Year." Tracy is a
"hometown" girl and a product of
our own WES and WHS. She'
attended both Gulf -Coast'
Community College and 'the
University of West Florida, earn-
ing a Bachelor of Science degree
in elementary education.
But it was not this formal
education that made Tracy arin4
exemplary teacher. It was not her1
ability to make difficult math-"
ematical concepts easier to
understand. It was not her talent
for making a mundane drill fun
and rewarding. It was not her
ability to organize materials and

Wewahitchka Elementary's "Teacher of the Year" award went to
Tracy Bowers.


maintain discipline in the class-
room.
Tracy is our WES 'Teacher of
the Year" because she loves chil-
dren. Well, we all love children:
mostteachers do, at least, in gen-
eral. But Tracy loves each individ-
ual child.
She loves those difficult to
love. She loves the child who may
not be as clean as he should be.
Tracy loves the playground bully
who starts fights with others. She
loves the timid child who lacks
the self-confidence to participate
In' classroom activities. Tracy
loves the .child who drives you
nuts with incessant questions
and fidgeting.
Children are intuitive crea-
tures who sense when love is gen-
uine and they respond to Tracy by
reciprocating that love. She has
an inexplicable way of meeting
each child where they are, and
bringing that child forward.
Tracy has created a truly nur-
turing'environifment iti her cliass-
room, upon first glance, visitors'
are quick to note how the children
are seated, quiet, and diligently
'Working.
Upon a closer look, they find
that it is not so because of harsh
words, scoldings or th-eat of dis-
ciplinary measures. It is so
because, they want their Ms.
Tracy to be proud of them, and
she is. '
Tracy. praises her students
frequently and publicly and for
every effort-no matter how
small. On those occasions when
reprimands are appropriate. they
are given quietly, privately, and. in
such a way as to allow students to
maintain their dignity.
A few years ago, I had the
opportunity to talk with a parent
of a student then in Ms. Tracy's
room. The child had been referred
to the office several times in the
past for disciplinary reasons, but-
made a remarkable turn-arounrd.
The parent credited Tracy,
and ,said that she was "God-
Blessed." That's pretty much how
I see it, too. God did bless Ms.
Tracy. He blessed her with the
ability to teach and the destiny to
make a difference in the lives, of
many students.
God blessed myself and the
other WES- teachers, too. He
blessed.us by giving us Ms. Tracy.
Next Monday, we will be, host-
ing the Laser Vaudeville. show.
There will 'be two. performances.
The first will be.in the morning on
'the 7th. The second will be in the
.evening at 7:00 at the high
school.

God's Blessing

,, Ini Numbers 6:24 we find, 'The
Lord bless you and keep you." In
the" Old Testament we hear of
blessings and oursings;. The
blessings show favor of God, and
the cursings show disfavor with
4 God ... All of us like to be some-
one0 -special. We like our family
and friends to, approve of us. This
concerns only how humans relate
Oliver F. Taylor ,tos \ ,
Visitation Minister. First >
United Methodist Church S Sometimes we ought to realize
how, God' has blessed us. Some
people seem to always lo6k at the negatives in life. I look
at the positives in my life. God has blessed me by look-
ing after my physical being. I have enjoyed many years of
life with reasonable good health. I had a good life in the
army for two years, and thirteen years on the Miami Fire
Department.
I have served the Lord for forty-tie years as a minis-
ter, and as a Christian layman long before that time. As
you read this, Laura:and I have enjoyed a Christian mar-
riage for over fifty-three years. As many of you, we have
been blessed by the Lord. Let us all tell the world how
God has blessed us.-, .
