states and highways.
Only last week, Board


Chairman Billy Traylor pointed
out that Gulf County needs this
type of roadway infrastructure.
This comment came when it was
announced by Gulf County

knowledge of its historical sites so

1st Annual PSJ
Garage Sale Is

On March 18th
The Port St. Joe Merchants
Association will be-' holding Its
First Annual Port St. Joe Garage
Sale on Saturday, March 18th, at
Frank Pate, Jr. Park.
The event is being sponsored
by the Port St. Joe Merchants
Association and TV-7 from 9:00
a.m. till 9 p.m.
Arts and crafts, food, face
painting, and various other ven-
dors are just a few of the things
that will be available at the park.
Anyone interested in' reserving a.
space at the city-wide garage sale
can make reservations by calling
Costin's Bookkeeping. All reserva-
tions must be made by March
15th and will cost $5.00.
The merchants will be gling
away $400 worth of Gulf County
Dollars gift certificates in $10
increments throughout the morn-
ing.
News Channel 7's helicopter
will arrive at 9:00 a.m. and
remain, in place on the lot across
from Port St. Joe City Hall until
12:00 noon. The station will also
be doing a live remote from the
park during the morning (from 9
a.m. till 12:00).
Gulf County Dollars gift cer-
tificates are now available at
Capital City Bank, Wewahitchka

St. Joe Bay
Comm. to Meet
The St. Joe Bay Committee
will meet March 9th at 9:00 a.m.
at the fire station. Reports will
include the latest research on
scallops in this area, information.
on the buffer zone around St. Joe
Bay, and the fish reef.


it can better protect these valu-
able resources.
The survey team is comprised.
of professionals Professor Judy
Bense and Dr. John Bratten, nau-
tical archeologist and conservator
(conserves artifacts from nautical
ites), as well as graduate stu-
dents from the University of West
Florida.,
Professor Bense says there
are 10 archaeological sites in the
park, seven that were previously
recorded and three that have'
been verified by park staff. An
archaeological survey,. she ex-
plained, is generally comprised of.
three phases.
Phase one is bounding a site..
Bounding involves taking a visual
assessment to determine the
validity of a reported site, measur-
ing, and drawing a scale map of
the site. Phase two involves test-
ing and evaluating, a site for infor-
mation gathering, and phase


three is the actual excavation that
most people equate with archaeol-
ogy. Excavation, through the eyes
of an archaeologist, is an attempt
to understand the site.
While Professor Bense and
her group of students studied the
site in the south portion of the
park. Dr. Bratten and Marie
Pokrant, a graduate student at
UWF, rpde along the bay side
shoreline at low tide with Ranger
-David Foote to check fallen logs
for the possibility of shipwreck
materials.
Several timbers with bolts
were found in different areas of
the beach. These pieces were
measured, photographed. sketch-
ed and recorded in an archaeolog-
ical log book. Each piece, regard-
less of how small or how large,
takes a lot of time and patience to
record.

sideration. Kenny Wood, council
chairman, outlined the need for
transportation development in
order to help draw economic
expansion, and ultimately jobs, to
Gulf County.
Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director
Diane Scholz also pointed out
that prospective., business
Inquiries are quick to point out
the need for connecting corridors
in and out of Gulf County.
The resolution passed 4-0
(Commissioner John Stanley was
unable to attend the meeting). It
calls for support from the gover-
nor and legislature for an alter-
nate roadway-for.U.S. Highway 98
from the Dixie Belle Curve to
Tyndall Air Force Base ("back
beach road" concept).
State -Representative Bev
Kilmer and Senator Pat Thomas
have submitted a budget request
for funds to build the alternate
road. The resolution also asked
for a Highway 231 corridor from


Highway 9.8 to Highway 231.
Not only would this allow for
economic development in Gulf
and surrounding areas, but
would also improve hurricane
evacuation and access to health
care, air transportation, and
Interstate 10,
It also requests changes in
existing permitting processes to,
help expedite development of the
area. The most recent example of
this need is Gulf County
Shipbuilding, which has waited
for permitting work by the Army
Corps of Engineers for several
weeks only to discover that the
request has not even been
addressed as of one week ago.
Workers could be at work
today at the shipyard if permit
requests had not sat on the shelf
for this time frame.
Several other points are
addressed in the resolution, all of.
which focus on needs to bring
jobs to the area.


Tourist Development


Tax Exceeds $100,000

Funds Far Surpass Expectations


As of February 25th, Gulf
County's tourist development tax
has. surpassed the $100,000
mark with collections totalling
$108,413.11.
"This far exceeds the amount
of revenues expected from the
tourist development tax," said
Gulf County TouristTIevelopmnent
Council Chairman Tommy Knox.
Just' as importantly, the
money is being put to good use for
many important tourist develop-
ment projects in the county.
The single greatest expense
went to beach maintenance in
Gulf County with $11,684 being
used for that purpose.
Beacon Hill Park and T. L.
James Park were also major
recipients, getting 810,710 and
$9,500 for improvements. A total


of $7,665 Was used to build the
Tourist Development Council
website and 82,042.45 has been
dispersed for supplies and ser-
vices.
The remainder of the
857.300.45 spent thus far went to
promote visitors to Gulf County.
Flathead catfishirijg Reiidee'(
Run. the 1st Annual Cobia
Tournament, Monumental Music,
the White City Bass Tournament.
Florida Bass Federation
Tournament, and a billboard on 1-
10 have each received assistance
from the Tourist Development
Council over the past year.
With the full support of the
Tourist Development Council,
Gulf County will probably contin-
ue to see an increase in activities
anrd events intended to draw visi-
tors to the Gulf County area.

St. Joe Wildlife Sanctuary and Ed.


Center Groundbreaking Held Monday


by Caroline Hunsley
"This ground breaking is the
beginning of a new era," said
Marie Steele-Romanelli at Mon-
day's ground breaking ceremony
for the new St. Joe Wildlife
Sanctuary & Education Center,
located at 2098 Hwy. 71, across
from the Gulf Rifle Club firing
range.
About 50 people attended the
ceremony on February 28th,
including the sanctuary's Board
of Directors: Marie Steele-
Romanelli, President; Timothy
Nelson, D.V.M., Vice-President;
Barbara Eells, Secretary; and
Joey Romanelli,' Treasurer; and
St. Joe Timberlands President,
Clay Smallwood.
Visitors were invited to view
the sanctuary's marsh pond and
read the wildlife display prior to
the ceremony. Brochures from
the display explained that
"Construction has begun on treat-
ment and outdoor rehabilitation
facilities. Plans include an educa-
tion and research center that will
focus on St. Joseph's Bay and
adjoining ecosystems."


During the ceremony,' Ms.
Romanelli extended a special
thank you .to Harold Quaken-
bush, Clay Smallwood, and
'Barbara Eells 'for their part in
securing the 10 acres site. She
informed the audience that the
trails will hopefully be open with-
in the next month; trails, she
said, which extend throughout
the sanctuary.
The wildlife sanctuary wel-
comes and encourages volunteers
'to join in their efforts to rehabili-
tate injured wildlife. Existing sup-
:porters have in fact been consis-
tent in their efforts to aid injured
wildlife in this area even before
the sanctuary developed.
Ms. Romanelli credits local
hunters with providing deer
hearts for Injured birds of prey
and local fishermen with provid-
ing fish for injured shore birds,
"We couldn't have done it without
them," she said.
St. Joe Timberland generous-
ly donated the use of the
Sanctuary's 10 acres. In addition,
Mr. Smallwood volunteered the
help of the St. Joe Timberland's


three biologists. "They will' be
put," he said, "at the Sanctuary's
disposal." .
The duo purpose of the new
wildlife sanctuary, as explained in
its educational material, is to pro-


vide "a central location for wildlife
rehabilitation efforts...", as well as
operating as a resource 'center for
public education. In keeping with
these goals, wildlife sanctuary

Didn't Take Long



To See Some Action

Just last week the question of the importance of infrastructure
development hit home as Gulf County asked why it didn't get the nod
from the Veterans Nursing Home Site Selection Committee.
Veterans Service Officer Bo Williams pointed out that those con-
veniences were recorded as one of the reasons Bay County was select-
ed as the # 1 site by the selection committee and the governor and his
cabinet. Gulf County Commission Chairman Billy Traylor was quick
to point out that this will be a problem every lime Gulf has the oppor-
tunity to draw jobs-the same stumbling blocks will remain.
Some of the top questions addressed by businesses, corporations,
factories, and even most people who might wish to locate in Gulf
County are...
*Does the county have tax abatement incentives? (We can address
this issue in a few weeks, March 14.);
*What are the transportation avenues?-major roads and inter-
state access, rail service, airport, and port;
*Education ranks high; adequate utilities; natural amenities;
hotels;.restaurants; arts and entertainment; health care; and the list
goes on and on..
Gulf County is off the charts in several of these categories, but two
of the most important missing pieces of the puzzle are tax abatement
and major highway access.
Our Gulf County commissioners are to be saluted for having the
insight to not only recognize these needs, but move forward with seri-
ous efforts to address them.
During the board's special meeting last Friday, it supported a res-
olution which asks for assistance from the governor's office to support
a funding request from Representative Bev Kilmer and Senator Pat
Thomas. The funds would help construct an alternate roadway for U.
S. Highway 98 from Dixie Belle Curve to Tyndall Air Force base (a back
beach road) and an extension from Highway 98 to U. S. Highway 231.
This would give Gulf County the corridor it needs to connect to the
outside world. How many times have you heard someone say, "You
have to want to go to Port St. Joe to get there. .
A connecting road to a major highway would completely change
the complexion of that scenario. Gulf County would have the total
transportation package-port, rail, close access to a major airport,
and major highway connecting routes.
Gulf County commissioners and the Economic Development
Council are definitely making positive steps toward creating jobs for
Gulf County. "

Zapme!'s School Yard Snooping
If someone was hanging around the school yard gathering vinfor-
mation on your children, wouldn't you want to do something about it,
like tell the creep to scram?
Well, someone has virtually crept into the school yard, and is gath-
ering information via computer without parents knowing about it,
much less being asked permission.
The "somebody" is the ZapMe!i Corporation, an Internet provider
that's backed by such giants as Microsoft and Dell Computer. The
SWfilf'Stret Journal reports that ZapMel already has contracts' with
. -6,000-schools, On the surface, the contracts look great: the company
provides computers, Internet access, maintenance, and support ser-
vices-free of charge.
What does the company get? An agreement that its computers will
be in use by the students at least four hours a day. This is where
ZapMel's public service turns to be self-serving, for the computer con-
stantly flashes ads at the bottom of the screen as' the students use it.
In other words, the company is selling our kids' eyeballs and minds to
advertisers. Also, the schools must agree to hand out sponsors' pro-
motional materials for the kids to take home.
Now here's- where the deal turns creepy. With the help of the
schools, ZapMel and its advertisers collect the names, ages. genders.
addresses, and other personal information about the students. These
profiles are compiled without informing parents or gaining their con-
sent, and there's no control over how the information is used, and to
whom it can be sold. .
Not only is this insidious Internet intrusions into our schools.
another step toward commercialization of the classrooms, but it's also
an outrageous invasion of our children's 'privacy. '.-"- .
This" is Jim Hightower saying ... A coalition ,ranging from Ralph
Nader to Phyllis Schlafly, including media watchdogs and Internet pri-
vacy advocates, is calling on states- to zap ZapMel's schoolyard snoop-
ing. To learn more, contact the coalition at 202-296-2787.

.I .had been looking forward to
it for weeks. I wanted to see 'em. I
wanted to catch up on the latest

But mostly I went to visit an

this is a hugging and eating group

ain't nothing close in third place I
can tell you that!
I don't count talking here
'cause it's not a conscious effort for
these folks. It's kinda like breath-

across the table is talking if your
story is better than his. You can all
talk at once! .,
It's .the beatin'est thing you
ever saw! :
'The food was as good as I
remembered. The chicken and
dumplings wvou Id melt in your
mouth. And I think we snuck in a
couple of extra meals during the
weekend. They had a "light" two
o'clock birthday snack-it would
have sustained the entire conti-
nental army through the long wiin-
ter at Valley Forge..
I didn't really come this time
for the food.

come to enlighten anyone.
The boys were there. I'd jour-

Markus. Patrick and Brett. We
tired to be on our best behavior
around all those grownups-but it
was so hard! They had these neat
miniature skate boards and the
gooey worms and the sticky eye-
balls. We played match box foot-
ball, they showed me how to kick a

a' -few ears..-. .
But this time I didn't come to
see the boys. -
Miss Lucille had ,t6 be pleased
at the turnout for her birthday. I
was proud for her. The 'number of

People Just Don't Trust Me Like Theo


When I started writing these
columns several weeks ago, it was
so easy. Every direction I turned,
people were almost bending over
backwards to help give me ammu-
nition ... or uh ... information to
write about.


Things have changed
though-people just don't seem to
totally relax around me anymore.
Why just .the other day I was
threatened "I better not read
about this in the paper."
In fact, this happened' again
Sunday evening as I left church
services and decided to drop by
The Star office for just a few min-
utes. As I rounded the corner from
Cecil G. Costin Sr. Boulevard onto
Williams Avenue, there sat a police
car pulled off the' side of the road
and jacked up in the back.
It didn't take a rocket scientist
to figure out that the officer had a
flat. It was dark in the area he had
come to rest, and being the good
samaritan I am, I aimed my head-
lights in his direction, pulled over,

Officer Rusty Burch knows that he
takes great pride in the way he
presents himself. He rose from his
knees (which were on the damp

down to and under his fingernails.
Circles. of dirt covered both kIees

those all too familiar words as he

As I peered over.th4 preda.ca-
ment Rusty had'to deal with'for'
just a moment, the old story about
the crazy man and the guy who,
.,lost his lug bolts for one of his -
tires crossed my mind. But, then I
remembered those- Words etched
in my mind-"I, better not read.
about this in the paper."
After all, it was hot his fault
the car jack was defective. :
Immediately, I reached for my .
jack and encouraged Officer
Burch as he' used it to raise the
car a few more inches-and get his
"piece of junk" jack out -from
underneath the vehicle.
During the process, I had
called son, Eric, to see if he had a '
heay duty jack in his truck, and
by the time we got my jack under
the car, he had walked down to -
offer some additional advice.
I must confess, it did get just a
little embarrassing when the spare
gave m a hard time as I tried to,fit
it between the fender wall and the
tire hub. .

!: '(From Page 1)
Dr. Bratten explained that the
presence of bolts generally Indi-
rcates .usage after the Civil War,
and. the pieces could perhaps be
late 19th Century or early 20th
Century.
In addition to, confirming the
time period of the old timber,
S :archaeologists will seek the
answers to other questions involv-
.ig this piece of history: "What
was this seacraft doing in St.
Joseph Bayi"; "From where did
tlhe craft originate?"; and "Was It,
-perhaps, part of an old barge?"; "If
so, what was a barge doing In St.
Joseph Bay during that time?"
S''-Another pbint of interest in
the survey is the site of the old
Spanish fort. Yielding very little
on the surface but an occasional
small sherd (pottery), the fort area
is believed to have been approxi-
S lately 100 yards square, not
including the houses that were
S located outside it. Some believe
the fort was used solely as a mis-
slon after it was abandoned by
the Spanish.
The survey is just the begin-
ning of an ongoing learning
process, which will help the park
validate. its historical resources
S* a.nd'pr6vide important education-
al.. information for the community
at large.
The archaeological survey
was brought about by special'
efforts on the part of park staff. In
particular, Ranger David Foote,
who spent two months coordinat-
ling the effort and Ranger Bill
Wilkinson, who was instrumental
in locating several archaeological
artifacts.

The Critics Said, "Two Thumbs Up!"


That was the consensus of
opinion following the annual
meeting of "The Friends of Gulf
County Public Libraries, Inc." held
Saturday, February 19, at the
local library.
The highlight of the 'after-'
noon's program was the very
informative discussion by Judge
Terry Lewis,: delivered to the
"standing room only" crowd in the
library's meeting room.
Judge Lewis, author of
"Conflict ofInterest," proved to be
an entertaining personality, and
had the attentive audience in, the
palm of his hand.
After some opening remarks,
he fielded a number of questions
from those present regarding the
mechanics of writing a first novel,
how he went about his research,
where he got his ideas, when he
did his writing, etc.
The rapport between speaker
and audience was evident from
the start, :and Lewis had many
waiting for the chance to talk to
him after the program. Judge
Lewis was extremely gracious
about signing copies of his book,
and made sure he wrote a per-
sonal note to each one who
wanted his autograph.
As one enthusiastic person
said, "I've never met a real, live
author before!!" Betty Cudebec
held the winning give-away ticket
for a copy of Terry's book.
Although Judge Lewis enjoys"
writing, he did say that he would
not want to give up his "day job."
We understand there is a new
book in progress. but naturally no
details were revealed. Keep watch-
ing for publication news: until ,
then, don't forget your local
library has copies of- his first.
novel, "A Conflict of Interest."
The afternoon's program with
Judge Bob Moore as master of
ceremonies also featured the
introduction of the current and
incoming board members, and the
installation of the new board.

by Caroline Hunsley
The David W. Jones Memorial
Gym at the former Washington
High School has received quite a
face lift lately thanks to a joint
city/county effort.
Currently in the process of
preparing for the annual Senior'
Citizen's Banquet in April, citi-
zens of North Port St. Joe look for-
ward to a comfortable gathering
now that the gym has air condi-
tioning and new bathrooms.-
Serving the needs of the
seniors; however, is not the only
purpose of the gym. It is intended
to meet the needs of the entire
community. Community children,
teens and adults all have access
to the gym. Children can attend
the gym programs after school
and on weekends. Supervision is
provided.
Plans are also in 'the making
for churches to use the gym for
revivals, and Nathan Peters, Jr.,
Gulf County Commissioner for
District Four, has plans to add
curtains to the newly painted,
recently lighted stage area so the
community can enjoy perfor-
mances, including talent shows
and plays.
On the east wall hangs an
Immense, wooden plaque com-
memorating Washington High
School's three former principals:
Emile A. Twine, 1946-1965;
Edwin G. Williams, 1965-1969;
and Lula Wilson, 1969-1970, as
well as its All Stars: Amos Pittman
and Willie Mae Farmer.


Not to be outdone, the exteri-
or of the gym is also receiving
attention. Mr. Peters donated two
flower beds, located on the east
and west walls of the gym, whih
are planted with sago palmIs,
roses and azaleas.
On Friday, February 25th,
the renovations were viewed by a
group of five people whose lives
have been in some way greatly
affected by the community gym:
Lula Wilson, former principal of
Washington High School; Willie
o Mae Farmer Harris, former
'Washington High All Star; Amos
Pittman, also a former Washing-
ton High All Star;. Officer Martin
Gay, supervisor of an inmate
work crew from the Gulf County
Correctional Institute; and
Nathan Peters. Jr.
Mr. Peters recognized Officer'
Gay and the correctional institute
for their on-going efforts since
September, 1999, to help beautify
the memorial gym during a tw ce
a week work schedule.
All Star recipient Willie Mae
Farmer Harris, who started play-
ihg basketball outdoors on a clay
surface, recalled how she aver-
aged 40-60 points for the
women's team per game.
Likewise, All Star recipient Amos
Pittman reminisced how he shot
67 points in one game during a
time when each basket shot
counted only one point.
Mr. Peters remembered a time
when, a basketball game at


Washington High meant the per-
manent bleachers were full,
make-shift bleachers on the stage
were packed, doorways and any
other available spaces were occu-
pied, all the on-duty police were
standing in the doorways to
watch, and excitement electrified
both the audience and players.


The gym is just as important
in the lives of North Port St. Joe
community members now, and
because of the renovations will
offer a variety of usage for every
community need. In the words of
former Washington principal,
Lula Wilson, "It's going to serve a
good purpose."

horizons and needs your help in doing so!

Volunteers &
Senior Citizens
Changing Lives

Delbert Fields has come as
always every year to Port St. Joe
to spend the winter. This year he
met the senior citizens staff and
found there was a lot of meaning-
ful projects to do for senior citi-
zens. He started in early January.
building wheelchair ramps,
installing handrails, and air ,con-
ditioners. He has changed the'
lives of 12 senior citizens.
.Several of these men/women
' .could not get out of their homes
until the ramps were built. The
funds were provided by the Needy
Peoples Grant. ;
Fields completed all of these
projects as a donation to this
community. The Senior Citizens
will be holding an appreciation~
reception for Fields and his wife
on Friday, March 3, at 10:30 a.m.
in the Stiles Brown Center in Port
St. Joe.
Pictured are some of the
ramps and projects he has com-
pleted. His wife Sharon accompa-
nied him and visited with the


senior citizens while he worked.
Their visits have been enjoyed by
all.

Getting Ready

In Mark 9:37 we find,
"Whoever receives one such child
in my name receives me, and
whoever receives me, receives not
me but him who sent me."
March 8th is known as Ash
Oliver F. Taylor Wednesday on the Christian cal-
Visitation Minister, First endar. Once again we are enter-,
'.Utited Methodist Church ing the Lenten. season which
leads to Easter on April 23rd.
Every Christian needs to prepare themselves for the
full meaning of Jesus' sacrifice upon the cross. This
leads to the resurrection which tells the world of God's
love for mankind.
Receiving Christ as our personal saviour opens the
door to eternity with pod. We are all mortals. The Bible
States there is a time to be born and a time to die.
: Eternity belongs to God and we are invited to join Him.
Christ overcame death through the resurrection. He
:becomes our saviour as we accept Him. We belong to God
in eternity through Jesus Christ. Now is the time to get
ready for Easter once again.

Ribbon Cutting For Boardwalk At Apalachicola Reserve


by Caroline Hunsley
TEACHERS AND STUDENTS
WANTED for an extraordinary
educational experience. People of
all ages needed to enjoy and learn
about a unique environment.
What's the catch? To find out,
you must visit the Apalachicola
National Estuarine Research
Reserve, located at 261 7th Street
(adjacent to the Scipio Creek City
Marina) in Apalachicola. The
three main goals. of the reserve
are to perform research, promote
environmental education and to
*provide and teach resource man-
agement.
The Reserve celebrated the
official reopening of their inter-
pretive center and the nature trail
and boardwalk on Thursday,
February 17th with an open
house and ribbon cutting.
Visitors to the open house
.had an opportunity to browse
among the many exhibits
throughout the reserve, and gath-
er educational materials, includ-


ing posters and environmental
packets.
A big success was the fish
feeding in the estuarine walk,
where staff members and volun-
teers enticed the occupants of
three large holding tanks to the
surface to eat.
Each tank represents inhabi-
tants from different area waters.
These marine creatures vary from
time to time, but identification is
easy, as a plaque listing the com-
mon and scientific names and a
picture of the marine life hangs
next to each tank. In the center of
each plaque is the "Feature
Creature" of the tank.
At present, the Gulf of Mexico
tank includes greater amberjack,
red grouper, blue runner, and
short bigeye, a bright orange,
gluttonous fish that seems to
show off by swimming around the
tank with dinner hanging halfway
out of its mouth, as if to say,
'"Look what I have.". The tank's
"Feature Creature" is a large


Carribean spiny lobster, who
lacks claws like an American lob-
ster, but has sharp horns above
its eyes and a pair of long spiny
antennae for defense.
Members of the Apalachicola
River tank include the large
mouth bass, blue catfish, com-
mon snapping turtle, chicken tur-


painful pinch when it is tired of
being held.)
In addition to these major
tanks are several others of vary-
ing sizes containing different
types of fish, turtles and crus-
taceans that are just as fascinat-
ing to watch.
After the marine feeding,

"Feature Creature" is a Barbour's
map turtle.
Representing. the Apalach-
icola Bay waters, in the third of
the large tanks, are sheepshead,

rapin, black drum, Florida pom-
pano and the "Feature Creature",
the striped burrfish. (whose par- .
rot-like "beak", 'the author can
attest, is capable of a severe and


refreshments were served in the
Main building, and while they ate,
visitors continued to enjoy the
,exhibits, such as the small Flor-
ida black bear. snakes, whale
bones, shells, .and Indian arti-
facts. The new atrium, adjacent to.
the conference, room, was a fav-
orite,, peaceful .place, where visi-
tors sat and enjoyed viewing birds
and other wildlife that inhabit the
woods around the reserve.


Soon after refreshments,
Woody Miley, Environmental
Administrator and Manager of the
Reserve, introduced guest speak-
ers, Bob Ballard, Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion's Deputy Secretary of Land-
and. Recreation;. Mayor Alan
Pierce;, Steve Malvestuto, Pres-
ident of Friends of the Reserve;
and former mayor. General Robert
L. Howell (for whom the building
was dedicated), who Informed the
group that the Apalachicola

Reserve is the only national estu-
arine reserve recognized by the

Following the speeches, door

r- Virge Specht
S\Norminee,
You know me. I opened your new account,
answered a question or assisted you with a
concern. You have probably seen me behind
the main lobby desk but not anymore.
Recently, I retired from Tyndall Federal Credit
Union as Head Teller and Supervisor of Member
accounts after eleven years of service.,

Born and educated in Bronx, New York, business owner for 7
.years, 15 years in Retail Management. With the Air Force, my
husband, Lowell, and I moved to.New Mexico, where I worked
4 years with a Financial Institution. We arrived in Panama City
in 1988, where I joined the.staff at TFCU.
I know TFCU inside and out. Having started as a teller, I worked
closely with members opening new accounts, and ultimately
rhanaged employees. I was the liaison between'employees and
management, as well as the communication connection between
members and TFCU. My entire work experience has revolved
around people. With my excellent organizational skills and my
ability to effectively communicate with everyone, I was able to
successfully perform my duties at the credit union, ensuring that
employees, needs were met and members concerns were
addressed, and problems were solved.
I am dedicated and loyal. With my experience, knowledge and
commitment to the community and to you, the members of TFCU,
I am confident that together, we can enter the new millennium
with an active voice and fresh ideas. Support me in the upcoming
election not just because of my qualifications for the job, but
because you know me.

Among WES's School-To-
Work initiatives is a project
known as Cafe Internationale.
Dozens of flags representing
many countries and most conti-
nents are displayed around the
perimeter of the WES cafeteria.
Signs bearing the names of
the countries are mounted
beneath each flag. A blue cafe-
style awning reading 'Cafe
Internationale" adorns the
scullery window. Cafe
International is designed to.
teach our students about careers
in both the food service and
restaurant industries.
Students decorate the dining
area, post the menu, and serve in
the capacity of host or hostess.-
Classroom teachers use the pro-
ject as a catalyst for further
research in these career areas.
In keeping, with the inrterna-
tional' theme, each grade group
has selected a country on which
to focus each month. Students
design and construct bulletin
boards and centerpieces featuring
the selected nation.
From this, students learn of
the geography, cultures and con-'
tributions of the various countries
forming the diverse world in
which they' live.
: The United States, Italy, and
Egypt are among the nations fea-
tured this school year. Dunng the
month of January. the focus
country was China. with the
Continuous Progress class serv-
ing as sponsor. ,
Through a collaborative effort
involving the food service person-
nel, a special menu of Chinese
cuisine was served on a special
day, culminating the study. As'
students enjoyed egg rolls with
sweet and sour sauce, Oriental
music played and a large dragon,
like that associated with Chinese
New Year parades, wound its way,
through the tables of enthusiastic
students.

dents in kindergarten through

items in the Christmas card sales
fund-raiser were treated to a day,
away from 'school on Wednesday.
They had a great time''at "Chuck-
E-Chiese" along with chaperones,
Cara Johnson,, Laurie' Ray, and.
Rusty Burch.

In our last "Christian School
Comment," parents were remind-
ed of Ephesians 6:4: "Fathers do,
not exasperate your children;
instead, bi-ng them up in the.
training, and instruction of the
Lord."
This is good advice to parents
who face the challenging respon-
sibility of parenting that begins
with the birth of a child and only:
becomes more complex and diffi-'
cult as time passes. In essence
this verse tells us to encourage
our children, nurture our chil-
dren discipline and instruct our
children. How are you doing?

The February 10 event start-
ed at Seal Beach, California,
approximately 100 miles north of
San Diego where the Hewitt is
homeported, and ended after a-,

her guests on board for the day.
"I am very, excited.' Smith

Family cruises are yearly
events that Navy ships sponsor to
better familiarize sailors' families
and friends with a ship's purpose
and mission. This helps to
increase awareness and offers 'an
opportunity for close relations to
flourish In the Navy community.
"My fa'vonte part of the cruise ,,
was the food." Randy said. Smith.
a two-year Navy veteran, has,"
served on board the 9.100-ton
Spruance class destroyer since
November 1999. She and 378 offi-
cers and sailors work together in
the performance of a variety of


specialized missions.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, MARCH 2, 2000


Crash Survivor Justin Tait Speaks to Students


By Jessica Summers
S "It could happen to you" was
the crucial message relayed to
students at Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka schools by Justin
Tait, survivor of a fatal DUI acci-
dent.'
Students watched in grim awe
as Tait revealed the prosthetic
legs: he walks upon. having lost
bothl to extensive burn damage in
the accident.
In 1997, Tait, 19 at the time,
and his friend Lir Sullivan were
driving under the influence of
alcohol. The driver lost control of
the vehicle and hit a tree-the car
became a fiery death trap,
instantly killing Sullivan and
badly wounding Tait.
Now, Tait takes his story on
the road, speaking to teenage
audiences all over the state. He
has spoken to nearly 7,000 stu-
dents since he began his tour in


November, 1999.
Tait works in conjunction
with Partners for Highway Safety,
a Tallahassee organization that
educates young people about dri-
ving safety and under-age drink-
ing. His presentation is combined
with a short film featuring actual
teenagers who have been alco-
holics, in car crashes, and even
one who suffered brain damage
after going into a alcohol-induced
coma. The video also features
clips of Tait first learning to walk
with his artificial legs.
Tait asked questions to the
audience and occasionally asked
for a show of hands. A shocking
amount of hands were raised all
across the gymnasium where Tait
sat when he asked if anyone had
ever ridden with an inebriated dri-
ver.
Tait makes clear the fact that
he is an ordinary person, just like

-Justin Tait talks to students just prior to taking his prosthetic
legs off. The shock value really gets the attention of students about
the dangers of drinking and driving.

r- us "


anyone in the audience. He was a
college student, looking for a good
time, feeling invincible, when his
future was forever changed. His
message is intensified by the
removal of his legs, showing the
ever-present reminder of his past
mistakes.
"You don't know pain until
you have been through what I
have been through," Tait said in
his speech to Port St. Joe Middle

Task Force Created
to Battle Alcohol
Just in time for spring break,
a task force is taking shape to
thwart underage drinking and
other illegal activities associated
with alcohol.
The Partners for Highway
Safety ,Youth Education Associa-
tion is. formed by Sheriff Frank
McKeithen, Police Chief Jay Lef-
fert, Florida Marine Patrol Major
Kent Thompson, and other area
law enforcement agencies.
The effort will be concentrated
among three issues: retail
enforcement, possession, and dri-
ving under the influence.
Retailers who sell such items
to those under legal: age are in
danger of losing their liscence.
However, statistics show that 2.2
billion 12-ounce cans, of alcoholic
beverages are consumed per year
in. Florida by underage persons.
Also, minors purchase 60 percent
of the total wine coolers sold in
the state:
The issue of underage drink-
ing will be addressed through,
increased education and school'
involvement.
Concerning the second of the
previously mentioned topics, task
force members will heavily patrol
areas seeking underage persons
,in possessions of alcoholic bever-
ages.
SThird, efforts to control DUI
will be made by increased road
stops. Law enforcement will be
taking a zero-tolerance policy on
this -issue.


grafts, as well as daily physical
therapy for nine months.


Although he can remember
nothing of the crash, he was con-,


victed last May of manslaughter-
DUI in the death of Sullivan. He
was sentenced to six years of pro-
bation and 500 hours of commu-
nity service.
"I want you to learn from me,"
says Tait.
