Gulf County commissioners
breezed through a multitude of
business items during a busy reg-

One of the first major items of
business was to pass a new coun-

The two areas of concern were
along the Gulf County Canal near

concerns that the ordinance
might give the board the authori-

they so desire. Board members

Trying to Control I


The Wrong Things

Sometimes it's so easy to find something pure simple and concrete to
try and blame for what is in reality deep seated problems.
Many of our modern day appliances, T.V.s and entertainment centers
are perfect examples of this. They quit working and you hope it's just a
fuse; because if it's not, then the whole dadburn electronic board usually
as to be changed.
It seems: that President Clinton, along with many others in America,
is looking for a fuse to fix a problem that's a whole lot more complicated L
than that. Some
Maybe you've guessed by niw where this is heading. Major change in whetl
gun control laws and legislation is being billed as the cover-all for soci-
ety's problems. I
Wouldn't that just be wonderful!!! Tighten up a few laws, add a few lately
restrictions, and WHAM-suddenly no more perverts going around and left
shooting innocent people for no apparent reason, before
I don't think so! flexln
How do I know, you might ask. Every single needless barbarous, stu- autor
pid, and senseless killing that has occurred in recent days has broken a time
multitude of current gun control and many other laws prohibiting the
slaying.
.This is not a fuse problem. Saying more gun control will eradicate the
problem is merely to ignore the true problem.
Our society has a problem way down deep in the mother board. Fixing
that problem will be no easy task. Blaming a fuse (guns) for this problem
and avoiding the real Issues-morals, ethics, breakdown of the family.
constant and unmonitored exposure to violence over the airways. movies,
gangs, cults, music, etc.-is like taking sugar pills to cure cancer.
Gun activists also need to be reasonable and accept the fact that not
all people are responsible and gun safety laws are a must-not only for the
protection of the innocent, but for the preservation of their nghts. Gun
owners should not only accept reasonable rules, but should be at the fore-
front in developing guidelines and legislation that proves "Safety First" is
more than just another empty slogan.
Our country is the greatest country in the world, and at the core of
our strengths are the freedoms and rights we were founded upon. One of
those rights is the right to bear arms.
Let's get to the root of the problem rather than playing politics with
Americans' rights.
Some of the best guidelines for correcting society's woes can be locat-
ed in the book that contains the religious teachings our country was ..
founded upon. Are we looking for answers In all the wrong places'?

Club Sees A Real


Need, Vows To Meet It
THE KIWANIS CLUB HAS VOTED TO head up a project which \\ill
guarantee the Gulf-Franklin Center of Gulf Coast Communirv College of
adequate land on which to expand the local campus. The club is con-
cernred with securing about an extra 22 or so usable acres on which they
can expand the campus.
The local campus is already bulging at the seams. They are out of land
already, with only one expansion that the school had to indulge in before
the initial buildings were even occupied.
Nobody even thought the school would need more than the original 10
acres for several years to come. But they have already been filled up with
buildings and more land \\ill be needed if and when there is more expan-
sion.
This is where the Kiwanis Club comes into play.
THAT CLUB HAS VOTED TO UNDERTAKE the chore of arranging for
more land for the school before homes are built on the property, making "
more property, precious and hard to come by. The land adjacent to the
present campus is the obvious target for the club to aim at securing.
The club is also learning from GCCC's Panama City campus. It Is now,
locked in by the bay and expensive real estate on each side. There is no
place to expand in Panama City.
The club is looking ahead and declaring that the same thing won't k
happen in Port St. Joe. They want to start now and make provisions for
growth while the property is still available.
THE CLUB'IS NOT GOING TO buy the property by Itself, although
they have pledged $3.000 a year for two or three years toward the pur- .
chase price. ,
The club is going to worn' organizations and political subdivisions to
death until they, are assured of the money to purchase the necessary
property. Just that. alone, will be a substantial accomplishment. They
won't getit done overnight. but we're putting our money on this gung-ho
club to get their aim accomplished. They recognize the real need here.

A Few Observations From the Cat-Bird's Seat and Other Incidentals


MY GETTING ABOUT is sort
of limited these, days. Not being
in the office on a regular basis
limits my contacts 'with other
people and cuts down on miny col-
umn material.
For instance, you don't really
want to 'hear about my hour or so
spent sitting on my patio in the
back yard. You don't necessarily
want to hear about my latest trip
to the doctor. If I didn't go to the
doctor on a -regular basis, I..
wouldn't get to go hardly any-
where. You don't want to hear
about my latest set of aches and
pains, .

John Rocker had to grow up

He'll .probably have a losing

Wewahitchka Is Seeking Library Grant Funds


"Wewahitchka city commis-
sioners adopted a resolution
authorizing the mayor to apply to
the Florida Department of State,
Division of Library and
Information Services for funds to
build a community library in
Wewahitchka.
The Library Advisory Board of
Gulf County had approached the
board requesting assistance from
the city to help find the means to
build the library.
*The board agreed to make city
property available on which to
build a new library upon,
Northwest Regional Library
Director George Vickery estimates
the completed and furnished cost


of the new library could be as
much as $350,000. If this library
group is successful in getting the
grant funds, they expect approxi-
mately half of the cost to be
secured.
Donations, fund-raisers, and
other in-kind contributions will
be sought to finance the remain-
ing funds needed.
Gulf County commissioners
have also agreed to submit a let-
ter of commitment supporting the
library graht and operational
help.
Initial architectural drawings
show a modern, spacious, and
roomy (4,043 square foot) pro-
posed library building.


CDBG Grant OK'd
Wewahitchka city commis-
sioners received good news on
their application for $500,000 in
Community Development Block
Grant (CDBG) funds to renovate
low income housing.
The city was notified Monday
that they had been successful in
competing for the grant funds.
T. L. James Ribbon Cutting
SAt 9:00 a.m., CST, on
Saturday, March 25th, official
ribbon cutting ceremonies will be
held at T. L. James Park to mark

On Monday, March 13, at
approximately 9:00 a.m., a 1990

being driven ;by Floyd E. Sunday,
swerved into the opposing lane of

Systems/Turns O.G. Water
Over to PSJ
t. *cCoun ty administrator, .Don
I Batter recommended to the board
that they use accumulated water
systems money to pay off both the
Oak Grove and Highland View
water bonds. Oak Grove is sched-
uled to be paid off in 2016 and
Highland View in 2003.
i The board unanimously
agreed with Butler's recommen-
dation which will save several
thousand dollars in future inter-
est payments.
Butler also requested the
board to consider turning the Oak
Grove system over to the City of
Port St. Joe. He noted that Port
St. Joe currently runs the system
for the county.
The board unanimously sup-
ported the idea. Board Chairman
Billy Traylor stated that the move
could be of some benefit to the
city.
During a phone conversation
with Port St. Joe Mayor Frank
Pate Wednesday morning, he
agreed that the additional water
service could be of some benefit
for the city's overall operation, as
he thanked the county commis-
sion for the gesture.
Inmate Crews
The board held a special
emergency meeting 30 minutes
prior to its regular meeting, to
review some of the guidelines
inmate crews must follow when
working within the county.

time. That's the result of a million
baseball throws in a hundred dif-
ferent leagues to a thousand differ-
ent players. I lift my arm to brush
my teeth and I remember most
every throw. And every town. And
every hitter I was privileged to
"smoke one by on the inside."
I have to "pop" my right ankle
a time or two and set it gently on
the floor. .. that broken bone was
the result of a church league bas-
ketball game twenty years ago ...

You can look at this stuff two
ways. You can sit around and cry
about all the "things" that have
happened over the years that have
slowed you a mite.
Or you can rejoice over the
experiences of life!
I choose the latter.
Plus, I get to take a trip every
morning ... and I don't even have
to leave the house ....

dent, discussed with commission-
ers the absolute need to make
certain work crews are .not in
close proximity to children while
working. He said there had been a
few complaints and that there is a
need for total cooperation with the
county crews on the question.
The board assured Alford that
they would focus on the issue
with Inmate crew supervisors.
In Other Business
*Discussed a need to hold
workshop sessions to address dis-
trict lines. Chairman Traylor
noted that some of the districts
were way out of balance when the'
number of voters in the areas
were compared.
*Commissioner Tommy Knox
expressed concern about the
salary Gulf County Shipbuilding
was offering employees versus the
figures it used when seeking road
grants and incentives.
*The board decided to hold a
workshop and discuss the possi-
bility of going to a four 10-hour
day work week for county work-
ers. Commissioner John Stanley
recommended the move as a way
to save money, along with the
other advantages. Larry Wells
(union bargaining agent for the
board) said the matter would have
to be approved by the union.
*The board is continuing to
try and resolve leaky roof prob-
lems at the Gulf County
Courthouse. The roof is still,
under warranty, but numerous
efforts to get repairs done have
been ineffective. The board is cur-
rently negotiating with the war-
ranty insurance company and
has received a bid of $12,225 to
re-roof the building with a metal
roof system.
*Accepted the low bid of
$156,799 for a. new excavator
(ditch digging and cleaning)
equipment along with financing
from Capital City Bank at the low
quote of 6.08% interest.
Decided to file for another
extension for a roadway grant to
service Dasco Marine (a boat-
building company) near Costin
Airport.
*Will hold a special meeting
Monday at 4:00 to further discuss
hiring a mechanic for the Road
Department.
*Amended the county's "No
Smoking" policy to include no
smoking in all county vehicles at
all times.

HV After-School Anti-Smoking Project Efforts:


Students at the Highland View after-school program are
shown researching anti-tobacco information on the Internet. In
an effort to lower the rate and number of youth and adults
smoking in Gulf County, these students are producing a pam-
phlet entitled "Facts vs. Fiction," which will be distributed
throughout the community.


Children and teens across the
nation are being influenced to
take on the habit of smoking and
or using smokeless tobacco'daily.
Surveys show that many adult
smokers began using tobacco
products during their teen years.
According to the Florida Kids
Campaign Against Tobacco, over
434,000 people die each year
from smoking; using tobacco
products,, and/or from inhaling
second-hand smoke. That's more
than 10 times the number of peo-
ple living in Gulf County.
In an effort to lower the rate
and number of teens and adults
smoking in Gulf County, the
Highland View After-School
Enrichment Group has joined
with the 16ocal Tobacco-Free
Partnership in its effort to educate
residents on the hazards of smok-
ing and smokeless tobacco.
Students gathered Informa-
tion through their participation in
discussions conducted by guest
. speakers and computer technolo-
gy.

'of Sabrina Burke, Coordinator of
the Tobacco-Free Partnership of
Gulf County, Gail Blackmon,
School Health Nurse for Gulf
School District, and Victor RolIka,
Highland View Volunteer Fire
Chief, supplied information about
smoking and using tobacco as
links to death caused by its affect
on a person's health, social life,
and damage to personal property.
One group of students, led by
.student volunteers Stephanie
SBlackmon and David Hopper.
used the Internet as an Informa-
tion resource to prepare an
awareness pamphlet.

issues, which he feels will have a
major impact on the county in the
next four years: employment
opportunities, growth manage-
ment, accessible healthcare,

financial management of Gulf

the future; therefore must include
making responsible decisions to
stretch tax revenues and pursu-
ing sound policies. He believes
that recovery from the mill's lost
property tax revenue, avoiding
draining "rainy day" reserves,
weaning from state loans and
hand-outs, and building of a sus-
tainable tax base are necessary
for 'the financial stability of the
county.

in business administration and
from Georgia College a MBA. He
was a Distinguished Graduate of
AirForce R.O.T.C., and served as

"Upward Basketball"

To Conclude Season

With Awards Night
The conclusion of the 1999-
2000 season of Upward
Basketball will take place Friday,'
March 17, at 7:00 p.m. with the
annual "Awards Night." This bas-
ketball league for children in
grades one through six is spon-
sored by Long Avenue Baptist
Church.
A great night of events is
being planned for all who attend.
This year's guest speaker will be
Bro. John Adkins. Bro. John
began ministering at Long Avenue
Baptist inwFebruary of this year.:
The church membership feels
they are blessed to have him as
their pastor and are excited about
him taking part in this special
night of Upward Basketball.
The program will also have
players who will participate in
this year's program, along with a
time of singing, awards for ALL
players, prizes, and more. As
.usual the program will end with a
special slide presentation of pic-
tures taken throughout the 1999-
2000 games.
In the past, the "Awards
Night" organizers have made pro-
visions for dinner for those who
wished to eat at the church fol-
lowing the event. This meal WILL
NOT be made available this year.
No food will be served at this
year's awards night.
There are always children,
who for various reasons, cannot
attend "Awards Night." Children
who have played in this year's
league, but cannot attend
"Awards Night" may go by the
Long Avenue Baptist Church
office by March 24 to receive their
award.
The commissioners of this
children's basketball league
report that this has been a great
season. Having a great season is a
result of 199 energetic children,
coaches, referees, prayer part-
ners, devotion leaders, concession
stand workers, score keepers,
student workers, and other volun-
teers.
The commissioners wish to
take this opportunity to say
"thanks" to the many people
throughout the community who
have had any part in making this
season such a success. They look
forward to the 2000-2001 season!

Some Wisdom About

Wisdom Teeth
Early removal of unerupted or impacted third
molars, the "wisdom" teeth, reduces the chances of gum
infections and loss of other molars. The inflammation
of the gum for such a tooth may spread into a serious
infection and the incidence of this type of infection
increases with age.
If you or any member of your family has this prob-
lem, it would be wise to visit a dentist as soon as possi-
ble. We cater to dental medications and can supply any
needed medicines or dental aids.

Eagle Harbor Boat Launch Update; Future Park Plans


by Caroline Itunsley
In a park report given to
inform those who attended the St.
Joe Bay Committee meeting on
Thursday, March 9th, Park
Ranger Joe Mitchell, of St. Joseph
Peninsula State Park, stated that
barring rain storms, the dredging
at Eagle Harbor should be com-
pleted by April 3rd.
Ben Withers, contractor, has:
been granted an extension date of
April 20th if necessary.
The project has taken longer
than expected, said Ranger
Mitchell, because the Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP) had to wait for matching
funds, which were past due from.
the federal government. When the
project is completed, he said,
boats should not have any prob-
lem getting out of the harbor, even
at low tide.
Ranger Mitchell also informed
the group that the St. Joseph-:
Peninsula State Park Unit-
Management Plan Review will be -
available for public viewing and *
discussion on Tuesday, March 28,
at 7:00 p.m. (EST), at the Gilf
County Courthouse, County


Commissioners Board Room,
1000 Cecil G. Costin, Sr., Blvd. in
Port St. Joe.
The review will be an impor-
tant opportunity for citizens to
voice their opinion on certain
park issues, such as whether to
pave the center road that runs
through the northern portion of
the park or keep it wild.
w Those present at the meeting
were encouraged to tell others the
importance of forming a non-prof-
it organization to speak on behalf
of public interests/Apparently St.
Joseph Peninsula State Park is
one of the few Florida state parks
without this type of public sup-
port.

Sports Afield Names
Apalachicola #1
Sports Town in FL
The March 2000 issue of
Sports Afield magazine named
Apalachicola one of America's 50
"Best Outdoor Sports Towns."
Annually, this popular sports
magazine chooses one city from
each state to highlight as the best
sports town in the United States.
Apalachicola was chosen, for the
third year in a row, as Florida's
best sport town.
The article begins, "Does your
idea of paradise sound like a place
where the size of your fish is more
important than the size of your
bank account, and .the morning
commute is by mountain bike? So
does. ours. That's why we're back
again with SA's third annual 50
Best Outdoor Sports Towns. No,
you: won't find Jackson Hole (try
Jackson, New Hampshire), or.
Moab (Now 'bout Medora, North
Dakota). But you will find undis-
covered outposts where outdoor
recreation is a way of life." -
Apalachicola, "The flats are
teeming with tailing redfish, not to.
mention tarpon, speckled trout
and tripletail. Sea kayaking tours
in the Apalachicola Bay and local
estuaries are relaxing and spec-
tacular. Combine the two and fish
the flats from a kayak." ,
In addition, Apalachicola
ranked #4 on the overall ranking
of the Top 10 Fishing Towns in
the United States.

Atkins Elected
to FCUL Board
Wesley Atkins has been
reelected and is serving his sec-
ond term asd district director for
the Florida Credit Union League
Board of Directors. The district
Covers the credit unions from
Pensacola to Blountstown.
Atkins has recently accepted
the position of President-CEO of
Bay Credit Union in Panama City
after completing 40 years of ser-
vice with St. Joe Papermakers
Federal Credit Linion. Dunng the
past .15 years, Wesley has worked
full-time for St. ,Joe Papermakers.
Federal Credit Union in Port St.
' Joe.
He states there are several
changes over the last 1,5 years
that he is proud to be a part of.
The assets of the credit union
have grown from eight million to
33 million. The field of member-
ship has been expanded to cover.
all of Gulf County and the City of
Mexico Beach.
S The credit union has an
equity ratio of 14 percent. In order
to better serve the members,. the
credit union has opened two
branches-one in Wewahitchka
and one in Mexico Beach.


In April 1995, at Boston
Children's Hospital, Nickolas
underwent his second open heart
surgery. The .reconstruction left
him with only half of a heart.
The reconstruction would
allow him.to use his own heart for
as. long as possible-buying him
time-perhaps a decade of LIFE.
Eventually, there will come a time
when his body ,will put too much
of a demandon his heart; there-
fore making a heart transplant
necessary.,
The Scheffers know that deal-
ing with Nickolas' congenital
heart defect will be a lifelong
process. They travel for regular
visits to, .hands Hospital in
S ainesvtil',ias well as the annual
trips .,l4ck to Boston, .
Massachusetts.
SNickIas is due to return to
Boston Children's Hospital on
Wednesday. May 10th. for a car-
diac catheterization and check-
up. While at the hospital. the sur-
geons will' evaluate how well
Nickolas' heart is doing, and cor.-
rect any existing problems there
may be.
Like many others in the coun-
ty, the Scheffer family lost their
medical insurance coverage when
the Port St. Joe paper mill was
shut down, forcing them to rely
on the -Florida Medipass/
Medicaid -program for the chil-
dren's healthcare costs.
In order for Nickolas to use
Florida Medicaid out of the state-
of Florida, it must first be
approved through the state
.(Tallahassee). They are currently
seeking that approval.
If denied, the burden of pay-.
ment will be the total responsibil-
i ty of the Scheffer family. Even if it

Marine Biology, A Hands-on Experience


by Caroline Hunsley
If you were eating lunch at
Frank Pate, Jr. Park on Thursday,
March 9th, you might have
noticed a group of young potential
scientists wading barefoot in St.
Joseph Bay while swooping bait
nets through the water.
For their first exposure to the
bay, Scott Lamberson's third
block marine biology class from
Port St. Joe High School, collected
live indigenous marine specimens
for their three salt water aquari-
ums.
The aquariums, 30 gallons
each, house a variety of sea life,
including a sea anemone, small
shrimp, fiddler crabs, minnows,.
sea urchins, and grasses.
Already half way through the
semester course, Mr. Lamberson's
marine biology classes have been
talking about ,the marine crea-


tures that interest them and
learning their scientific classifica-
tions.
Sea turtles and sharks were
studied first, as evidenced by the
wall length mural in the class-
room, where paper sharks with
open jaws chase green paper sea
turtles on a sea blue surface.
There is even a neon green sea
turtle inhabiting the deep blue
depths.
The latest study is bony fish
and Thursday's collection will
help students learn to identify
and classify this segment of the
marine population.
Included in their catch were a
sucker fish,, several fiddler crabs,
small shrimp, a lightning whelk
and at. least 30 minnows. Mr.
Lamberson said the minnows will
help students understand the
schooling behavior of some fish.


Specimens are fed every day

The sea anemone requires the
shrimp to be shelled before eat-
ing. In actuality, it cannot digest
the shell, but will readily eat the'
morsel beneath, and indulges.in a,
twice a day feeding.
Mr. Lamberson feeds the sea
creatures every day, including
weekends, as well as every day
during the summer.
If a creature outgrows a tank,
it is released back into the bay.
Eel, seabass and several fiddler
crabs have already been released.
Though the bay water is still
cool this time of year, the stu-
dents didn't seem: to mind. They
know this expedition was a pro-
logue to an even more exciting

When the water turns warm,
Mr. Lamberson hopes to take the
