Gulf County ShipbuildingCruising


Nekton Rorqual Is Under Construction At "Old Dynamite Dock" Site


Gulf County Shipbuilding is
moving forward with the con-
struction of the "Nekton Rorqual,"
as all the pieces are finally begin-
ning to fall into place for the com-
pany.
The latest good news came
from the state just a few weeks
ago when just over S2 million in
road funds were approved to pave
:the 1.9 mile stretch from Highway
71 to the old dynamite dock site.
Company president John
Dixon said Wednesday morning
that work is already underway on
the first shipbuilding project.
Nekton Rorqual with its unique
SWATH design will be the first sis-
ter ship to the Nekton Pilot diving
cruise vessel.
The road grant approval is


Kelley Announces Bid for

Re-Election as School Supt.


Superintendent of Schools
Jerry Kelley has announced his
bid for re-election. Kelley has
served one term in that post. A
veteran of 33 years in the Gulfl
County educational system, he
has worked as a teacher and as a
principal at all grade levels, as
well as serving as an adjunct
Instructor for Gulf Coast
Community College.
In announcing, Kelley states,
The difficult economic times in
Gulf County have greatly impact-
ed our school system. Neverthe-
less, during my administration we
have kept this school system on a
stable path and a sound econom-
ic base. This.has. been due.to hard
*' work and..ai'rfifce on the pat'of
many people: teachers, school
,(! officials and the 'community-at-
large.

decisions and taken the neces-
sary actions without diluting the

ting the operation moving at full
speed. Chris Corr, Vice President
Public Affairs for the St. Joe
Company, said they are in the
process of deeding the roadway
over to Gulf County. Afterwards,
the county will go out for bids to
construct the 1.9, miles of road-
way.
Dixon said the only hold up
on the company's full progress
with the construction of the basin
and slipway Is Final approval from
the Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) for permits. He


Road Tremendous Benefit for
Economic Development
The 1.9 miles of roadway will
give Gulf County nearly four miles
of developable property with road
front footage. This has in essence
created an industrial park com-
plex with access to Highway 71,
the Intracoastal Waterway, and
nearby rail service.

tive has also just recently run
power lines down to the

and initial orders of steel for the
pontoon portions and struts have
arrived and are in use for prelim-
inary fabrication of the ship. Once
the DEP permits are approved,
approximately 60,000 cubic feet
of sand wvil be removed for con-
struction of the basin and slipway

Canal.


have. been hired and are currently
doing construction work at the
site. One of the major jobs at Gulf
County Shipbuilding will be weld-
.ing positions. Dixon said it will be
a lengthy process to bring welders
on line.
Each one will have to pass all
of the U.S. Coast Guard's certifi-
cation requirements for the host
of different welding techniques
required to build the ships.
Dixon's efforts throughout
the process have been to use local
labor as much as possible for the
available jobs. Training and certi-
fication will be a gradual process
over the next several months,
with an eventual goal of 61 jobs

Watch Where You
Put Political Signs
Gulf County has an ordi-
nance in place that restricts the
placement of signage along, the
county's right-of-way.
As political season is getting
underway, signs are already
beginning to pop up around the
county. County commissioners
have observed that many of these
are being placed on county right-
of-ways in violation of the ordi-
nance.
Commissioner Tommy Knox
brought this issue to the board's
attention recently during a special
called meeting.
Commissioners agreed that
the signs placed in violation of the
ordinance would be removed and
stored at the county road depart-
ment. Chairman Billy Traylor will
also write a letter to candidates
advising them of the county ordi-
nance and outline the restric-
tions.

Let's Take Advantage



Of Our Priority Position

Join In With the Making of Plans to

Develop Our Town in a Sensible Manner
LAST THURSDAY'S CHAMBER OF Commerce annual meet-
ing revealed some good times ahead for Port St. Joe ... provid-
ed we try to help ourselves and cooperate with each other as a
team in attempting to better our position.
Speaker Neal Wade, vice. president in charge of economic
development for the St. Joe Company, said the St. Joe Company
has a long relationship with Port St. Joe and considers its
revival as top priority in the company's plans-for the Panhandle.,
It's no secret that St. Joe has great plans for developing the
Panhandle-from Pensacola, east, including all counties along
the way. But Gulf County has top.priority. He called to the audi-
ence's attention the county's natural resources which attracted
the late Ed Ball here during the 20's and 30's. We still have
them and must build on them again. \
OF COURSE, THE CITIZENS OF THIS area must become
active in making plans for improvement to the area or leave the
decisions up to others who might not develop according to local
ideas. Wade expressed a desire to follow local development
directions and retain as much of the historic Port St. Joe as pos-
sible,.as they improve.
"Economic development starts with jobs," Wade emphasized.
He hasn't-lost sight of the most important facet of local improve-
ment and the reason for it in the first place.
Port St. Joe is going to change in the next 10 years. It. is
going to get started long before that, but it won't look like the
same place 10 years from now. Are we going to be active in mak-
ing development plans the way we want them made, or are we
going to give up that duty to others?
WE'RE PLEDGING THE RESOURCES OF this newspaper to
making-or urging-the type development we need and keep the
small town atmosphere we all desire to keep.
It is most desirable that we keep the low rate of crime we
presently have. We also desire to keep the adequate schools we
now have. Also desirable is that we maintain our plentiful sup-
ply of churches. '
We can do this if we plan accordingly. Development doesn't
necessarily mean unbridled growth with all of its undesirable
amenities.


He Deserves It

"OLD" GENE DESERVED THE RECOGNITION of "Lifetiine
AchAhieve-ment." presented by the Chamber of Commerce recently.
He ftoes a lot of good for the citizens of this community.
No charitable organization can attempt to raise money via a
fish fry without Gene and his firm giving the fish to cook. More
often than not, they are cleaned and ready for the cook pot.
He has been a staunch supporter of all things to benefit the
community ..especially the youth. When the state took mea-
sures to harm his business, he took it all in stride and worked
around it. He's made more good works out of fish than anyone
else in this vicinity.
GENE IS THE EPITOME OF A "GOOD FELLOW" and
deserves, the award and the attention. Gene has done more for
our community without ever being the Chamber president, than
anybody we know of. Wherever he's gone. he has sang the prais-
es of Port, St. Joe ... even as far away as Japan. Wherever he
goes, he is just "Gene." What you see is what you get with Gene
Raffield.
It was hard to visit him at the fish house and come away
without a mess of cleaned fish 'in your possession. We don't
know how he stayed in. business; He gave away about as much
as he sold, it seems.
A more deserving person has never been, to receive this
award.


Hunker Down With Kes by Kesley Colbert:


Longer Lasting Than Vinegar Dye...


Mother used to worry about us
and Easter. "Boys, it's not about
hunting eggs and bunny rabbits."
"Yes ma'am." We'd answer in
unison.
'Course, we'd never take our
eyes, or our minds, off the small
wire holding the hard boiled egg
Leon was dipping into the red dye
solution.


"Hurry up. it's my turn next!"
My impatience got its birth around
that kitchen table.
'Let's mLx the orange with the
green and see what color we get."
David Mark's eggs always kinda
stood out in the basket .
It wasn't like we didn't "get the
message." I mean, we spent Good
Friday paying penance at the Spe-
cial evening service and we wore
sack cloth and ashes all day
Saturday. That night she would
sceub us up, to a fare-the-well,
"We've got to look our best for the
Lord on.Easter morning."
"Yes ma'am."
She'd wake us up in the mid-


die of the night. "Come on boys.
This is the most special day of the
year. I have your clothes laid out.
Hurry!"
I'd cram my feet into those
hard rock. brand new Buster
Brown's. take three steps and
know that this day I was about to
present myself as a living sacri-
fice!
We were the first family to
arrive at the pre-dawn singing in
the park. Then, we were front row,
center for the Sunrise Service, the
special Easter morning breakfast,
Sunday School (the 24th chapter
of Luke), the morning worship ser-
vice (John, chapter 20), and in lieu


of the evening service. we'd set
through the passion play and the
Easter Cantata, performed by.the
joint choirs from all three church-
es in town .
We'd sing "Up From The Grave
He Arose" at least six times!
And over our chicken dinner,
Bro. Hatcher would recap Christ's
sacrifice for us just as if me, and
Leon and David Mark hadn't been.
down at the church all day!
One year, I was ,the cross,
David was the stone that got rolled
away, and Leon, who was old
enough to have a speaking part,
was the one who got to outrun
Peter to the cave.
Listeri, we knew from an early
age not to be seeking the dead
among the living.
But, we were also yopng
enough to surely get a joy out of
coloring, hiding, and seeking out
those eggsl
I hope the Lord will forglyp us.
And you know Leon. It wasn't
too many years till we got to throw-
ing those hard boiled eggs at -each
other. We'd get out in the back
yard and it would be hunt and
duck! Those things could stingyou
pretty good if you caught one up
side the head. -
I never will forget us chasing
down LaRenda Bradfleld -one time
and smashing a couple of eggs on
her head. She had kind of a pink
streak in her hair for months and
she smelled like vinegar .<
Don't feel sorry for her, 'she
could hold her own. That night., in
the play, I was the angel that. was
supposed to appear "unto" Mary.
That crazy LaRenda removed a
couple of the boards that 'ran
across the baptistry. I "appeared"
for about two seconds, didn't get a
chance to deliver my line about
why she was weeping before I
splashed into the water!
Mother was appalled.
I thought It kinda loosened up
those Buster Browns.
That was years ago. And you
talk about shining titmds! .
I've since wrestled with ':sme
of those 'same questions, doubts
and fears that Mom had about
Easter. I wanted my boys to be
boys. They'd run down that hall to
check out the chocolate bunnies In
their little baskets! They'd literally
jump for joy when -spotting a "hid-
den" egg in the backyard. I waited
them to have those memories ;. .
But I wanted them to "get the
message." It seemed to me at times
they were leaning a mite more
toward the eggs than the church.
:Then I: thought back to my
Mom. And her qtiet, consistent,
constant Christian example..
I looked at my. sons' mother.
And her quiet, consistent, con-
stant . It'll take more than a
few colored.eggs and a candy iab-
bit to overcome that kind of' teach-
ingl ... .
i Easter is what you make of it.

Local Bakers Preempt This Week's Subject


I THOUGHT I HAD the sub-
ject of my column in mind when I
looked outside the other day and
saw the first humming bird at the
feeder this year.
The small birds disappeared
last fall for their migratory trip
down south and now they're
back. ..
The, return of the humming
birds should be a fitting subject
for a column. It -announces the
advent of spring, along with sev-
eral other:things.
We had an outside table right
near the humming bird feeder
and our outside tabby cat had
taken to laying on the table in the
sun. I felt the cat was. lying in
wait for the humming bird to be
more attentive to its feeding than
it. was of the cat lying in wait.
There was no doubt in my mind
but what the cat would attempt
to eat the humming bird.
Since there was only one
humming bird thus far into the
season I didn't want to tempt fate


I ETAOIN SHRDLU


too much, so I moved the table
and removed my subject for this
week's column at the same time.

THEN, ALONG CAME anoth-
er subject to write about.
On Wednesday-before I had
to write this blurb on
Thursday-Joyce Waters brought
me by a pan full of homemade
rolls, complete with aroma. You
know Joyce Waters. She's Bev
Kilmer's assistant here in Port St.
Joe.
Since I'm not at The Star
office regularly, anymore, I, and I
think-Willie-was surprised she
didn't bring them to him. But I


received a telephone call
Wednesday, telling me she had
left the rolls down at the office for
me.
Now, it's dangerous to leave
food for anybody down at the
office. It has a habit of getting
tasted up. We had an employee
once who remarked, "You all are
the craziest white folks I eve-r
,saw. You can leave money lying
around and nobody will touch it.
But leave something to eat lying
about, unattended, and it will
disappear in an instant!"
That's why I immediately
came down to the office to claim
my homemade rolls '


EVEN SO, AT LEAST one of
those rolls was missing .
already!
I took the remainder home
and had them for breakfast
Thursday morning, along with
some of L. L. Lanier's famous
tupelo honey. That's ambrosia for
the gods and for Wesleyl
I've a message for Joyce, after
eating those homemade rolls,
slathered in honey and butter.
Either she has to give us the
recipe or furnish us with a pan of
fresh baked rolls every week..
They were fittin'l
I have another regular baker
who titillates my taste buds on
occasion, too. Marie Littleton will
tease me with a dozen or so fresh
homemade cream puffs on occa-
sion, too. When the .notion
strikes her, she just brings them
by. I'm lucky if I get one of the
cream puffs to eat. Everybody
down here at the office knows
what is i n her package and they
like fresh homemade cream


puffs, tool

AS IF THE HOMEMADE rolls
weren't enough, I stopped by Mae
Phillips' shop for my twice
monthly haircut Thursday morn-
ing and as I was leaving Quida
Branch was just getting there.
Ouida was carrying a basket
containing some 'fresh baked
crackling bread she had just
taken out of the oven.
"Do you like crackling
bread?" she asked.
"Do I like crackling bread!" I
echoed. "You bet I do!" I was
quick to reassure her.
"Well, have a piece!" she said.
And I most certainly did,
then and there!
I had my entire breakfast
given to me Thursday; reason
enough to change 'the subject of
my column from humming birds
to something good to eat!
I had delicious homemade
rolls, along with heaps of honey
for the first breakfast meal and


fresh baked crackling bread ifor
dessert.

I HAVE A COLUMN. to write
every week and often I don't have
a subject right at.hand. It's been
too long since I was In school *o I
can't rely on. those days, Rke
Kesley does. I'm not. out and
about as much anymore .so I
don't run up on subjects muci.
But, if you ladies keep !on
cooking and bringing me goodies
to eat, then I'll have a never end-
ing source of good delicious, sub-
jects about which to write. .
. I'll save the humming birds
for another time, if you don't
mind. They make some interest-
ing watching and should make
an interesting column to tell
about it.
I'll keep the cat at bay, so
he/she doesn't catch the birds
for a meal or a morsel, in the
meantime. The current bird visit-
ing our feeder won't make more
than a morsel.

EMPLOYMENT and

"We must strive to create the right kinds of jobs in our community."


ulfCounN needs a ne, begin-

a renewed effort to look for the

economically from the difficulties of
recent years, we need to seek eco-

that are compatible with our

W eIe have to work harder and
WW smarter to recruit' the employ-
ment opportunities to Gulf County
which will enable our neighbors and
children to have the choice to work
in Gulf County, and not have to.
move away to mAke a living as my
son and so manr of our friends and-
neighbors have had to do.

G. C., Kick's Off
Teen Pregnancy
Month Early
Teen Pregnancy Prevention
Month is right around the corner,
starting May 1. To kick off aware-
ness in our community a 'little
early, one tip from the "Ten Tips
for Parents To Help Their Children
Avoid Teen Pregnancy," will be
presented each week through the
month of June.
These "Ten, Tips". are being
presented from The National
Campaign to Prevent Teen
Pregnancy. The National
Campaign has reviewed recent
research about parental influ-
ences on children's sexual behav-
ior and talked to many experts in
the field, as well as to teens and
parents themselves. From these
sources, it is clear that there is
Much parents and adults can do
to reduce the risk of kids becom-
ing pregnant before they've grown
up.
Presented over the next nine
weeks will be lessons which will
seem familiar because they artic-
ulate what parents already know
from experience-like the impor-
tance. of maintaining strong, close
relationships with children and
teens, setting clear expectations,
and communicating honestly and
often with them about important
matters. Research supports these
common sense lessons; not only
are they good ideas generally, but
they can also help teens delay
becoming sexually active, as well
as encourage those who are hav-
ing sex to use contraception care-
fully.
This week, Tip # 3
Supervise and monitor your
children and adolescents.
* Establish rules, curfews, and
standards of expected behavior,
preferably through an opera*
process of family discussion and
respectful communications. If
_your children get out of school at
3:00 p.m. and you don't get home
from work until 6:00 p.m., who is
responsible for making certain
that your children are not only
safe during those hours, but also
are engaged in useful activities?
Where are they when they go out
with friends? Are there adults
around who are in charge?
Supervising and monitoring your
kids' whereabouts doesn't make
you a nag; it makes you a parent.

In Loving Memory Of
Mrs. Gladys Stallworth
1922-1997
It has been three years since our
mother went to heaven to be with
our LORD & SAVIOR JESUS
CHRIST. Her loving smile and warm
presence continue to be missed.
If we could see her now
Our prayers would be answered
She finally arrived.
The healing that had been delayed
Is now realized.
She is not in a hurry
There's no schedule to keep.
She is there enjoying Jesus
Just siting at his feet.
If we could see her now
She's walking streets ofgold
Standing tall now that she has been.
made whole.
She has looked at his face
and all the pains erased,
Oh the Glory of God,
How Wonderful to Embrace!
The light and temporary trials have
i worked out for hergood,
* knowing it brought him glory makes
up for when we misunderstood.
Though we've had our sorrows,
they can never compare
to what Jesus had in store
for her there.
Her Family,
1ev. Otis Stallworth, Taft, Theotis, Sugarman,
Rich ird, Calvin, Lois, Deborah & Otis Jr.

Hundreds of people gathered for the annual coop meeting.


The Port St. Joe AARP is
sponsoring an A.A.R.P. 55
Alive/Mature Driving Program.
This will probably be the last class
until fall in this area. The program
is a driver refresher and an edu-
cational course for all drivers 50
years of age and older. Every dri-
ver age, 50 and over, really should
take this course. There is nothing
to lose but a little time, with an
awful lot to gain. There are- no
examinations, no driving tests
and no chance of losing your
license.
This highly effective, driver's
refresher course, approved and
encouraged by the state and fed-
eral governments, will be held at
the Senior Center located at 120
Library Street in Port St. Joe, on
Tuesday and Wednesday, April 25
and 26, from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00
p.m., ET. To cover some of the
expenses a fee of $10 per person,
preferably in the form of a check
made out to A.A.R.P., will,be col-
lected.
Classes will be presented in
two four-hour sessions over a
two-day period, instructed by a
fully trained AARP volunteer.
Upon completion of the course, a
certificate will be issued to each
participant that probably will give
the certified person a discount on
their auto insurance. These cer-
tificates are good for three years,
then the course must be taken
again.
Again, "Who needs this
course?" According to all govern-
ment and insurance company
reports, every driver age 50 and
over needs to re-evaluate their
abilities on the road.
Please don't be one of those
people who believe there is noth-
ing more to learn because you
have been driving for 40, 50, or 60
years. Millions of people that have
taken this course would prove you
wrong. Make your reservation

hungry for some barbecue, and of
course, they need some more
funds to help stay on course with
artificial reef construction.,
The group has only one goal
in mind, and that is to ensure
that every fisherman that visits
the area has a much better than
average chance of catching one to
brag about. Artificial reefs are an
important part of that formula.
The MBARA rs committed to
that end and holds these fund%
raisers td -help'thehL aittaini those
goals. However, the wonderful


thing about the fund raisers is
that they should really be called
"fun raisers."
This year's event is scheduled
for April 22nd, and promises to be.
even bigger and better. The orga-
nization has contracted with the
world famous "Bud Boys" to do
the cooking for the barbecue this
year.
Anyone wishing to make con-
tributions to the organization for
the auction or to join inr its reef
building efforts is invited to con-

as a means to bring needed dol-
lars to fire departments through-
out the county in an effort to
upgrade fire protection. The 1./20
sales tax would generate approxi-
mately $350,000 per year and
would only need to be in place
three to five years in order to take
care of the need, Peters told the
board.
Commission Chairman Billy
.Traylor suggested the board
needs to know more about the
needs of individual departments
before it can make a decision on
the issue. He recommended that
Peters survey the various specific
'needs of fire departments
throughout the county so the
board could use that data in
determining what the needs are,
and how much money might be
required to improve the situation.
Another question was asked
by Commissioner Warren Yeager
about whether the funds could be
used to offset ad valorem tax dol-
lars. Commissioner Peters agreed
to look at the issue and bring
additional information back to the
group.
Gulf County voters wold have
the final say on the 1/2t tax, if
commissioners decide to place the
question before them on a county
wide referendum.
District Lines
The board also discussed dis-
trict lines and the state require-
ment to keep the districts bal-
anced in numbers. Two of the
county's four distncts are consid-
erably above, the average (District
3 and District 5), while Districts
1, 2, and 4 run from just a little
under to approximately 400 resi-
dents under the average.
Board members will be send-
ing a few sample maps to the
state for consideration and input
as they begin to lay the ground-
work for future changes. Districts
can only be realigned in odd
years. The board hopes to be
ready to move forward in 2001.
In Other Business
*Commissioners also decided
to look at a sample ordinance
being prepared by Board Attorney
Tim McFarland which will desig-
nate private or county roadways
by using color coded signage as
recommended by Chairman Billy

SPORT ST. JOE
E -I4E MENTARY SCHOOL


Wewahitchka Elementary
School .has used technology to
enrich its traditional reading cur-
riculum by implementing a com-
puterized curriculum known as
Tomorrow's Promise in the com-
puter lab.
Tomorrow's Promise reading
helps K-8 students fulfill their
potential as proficient readers,
writers, and lifelong learners with
a comprehensive reading program
designed to build essential skills
and an understanding of how to
interpret texts.
Featuring dynamic graphics,
animation, audio, hypertext, and
voice. The Tomorrow's Promise
reading curriculum motivates
students to react, and to achieve
success in reading and'writing at
each progressive level.
Compelling passages from a.
variety of genre build core reading
skills. The interactive self-paced
exercises are designed to develop
proficiency in reading -readiness,'
comprehension, word analysis,
vocabulary, and literature-based
writing.
Tomorrow's Promise reading
includes helpful features, like an
interactive glossary and voiced
pronunciation designed to help
eabh student receive feedback on
his or her learning.
This reading curriculum pro-
vides an approach that balances a
literature-based program and
instruction in phonics, vocabu-
lary and comprehension. This
easily allows educators to blend
and customize instruction to
match their specific educational
philosophy and to meet' the indi-
vidualized needs of their stu-
dents.
; A full array of literary genre is
represented in this K-8 curricu-
lum including folktales and
fables, legends, poetry, plays,
realistic fiction, historical fiction,
adventure, fantasy, humor, ani-
mal stories, biographies, history,
science and mystery.

The selections reflect a wide
range of topics, lengths, and writ-
ing styles as well as diversity
across race, gender, cultures, and
generations.
Tomorrow's Promise reading
K-8 adheres to the latest recom-
mendations of the National
Council for Teachers, the interna-
tional Reading Association, and
the National Assessment of
Educational Progress.

THE LAMB...
Mary had a little lamb,
His fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
The Lamb was sure to go.
He followed her to school each day,
T'wasn't even in the rule.
It made the children laugh and play,
To have a Lamb at school.
And then the rules-all changed one day.
Illegal it became;
To bring the Lamb of God to school,
Or even speak His name.
Every day got worse and worse,
And days turned into years.
Instead of hearing children laugh,
We heard gun shots and tears.
What must we do to stop the crime,
That's in our school today?
Let's let the Lamb come back to school,
And teach our kids to pray!

Thomas Jackson was a
Confederate general He led his
brigade in the first battle of Bull
Run.
His men faced what seemed
to be overwhelming 'odds. But
General Jackson and his men
stood their ground firmly.
"There stands Jackson like a
, stone wall!" cried an officer. That
name fit him so well that he was :
called "Stonewall" Jackson after
that. .
Wanted: Christians who'll
stand like a stone wall against
Satan and sin.
The Bible warns, "Keep your
eyes open for spiritual danger';
stand true to the Lord; act like
men; be strong!" Dare you?

Written By: Amber Davis
As the "yellow dog" was leav-
ing Port St. Joe High School on
the afternoon of Tuesda'o. April
4th. the eight Student Council
members on the (brand newlll)
.bus were not quite sure what
their ad\1sor was, getting them
Into.
; They knew they were headed
. to the Florida Association of
Student Council (FASC) State
Convention in Orlando, and that
S-they were making several
overnight stops before arriving at
the. convention. What some had
not bargained for were the strong
bonds they formed with one
another and'others they met. and
the personal growth they expen-
enced in the week they were gone.
Those on the trip included
two freshmen. Chris Pen-in and.
Susan Ellmer, sophomores.
Rachel Geoghagan and Maclain
Howse, and juniors Amber.Davis,
,Adam White, -and Susan Medina,
Sas well as their advisor, Rodney
Herring.
The group spent the first-
night about four hours east of
Port St. Joe in Chiefland with host
families of Student Council mem-,
bers from Chiefland High School.
Despite the late hour, all were
back at the school by eight a.m.
sharp, anxious to get on the road.
Five hours and the first of many
Wal-Mart stops later, they arrived
at Santaluces High School in
Lantana near West Palm Beach.
It could be said that the
Student Government at Port St.
Joe High School has found its
S"sister" school. Over the lastyear,
the two schools have found them,-
selves,, doing more and more
together. Last spring, several del-
egates visitedd Port St. Joe on their.
way to the State Convention in
Pensacola.
The two councils met again in
New Orleans last October for the
.Southern Convention. Again last
week, they made more memories
not'as two different groups from
separate schools, but as one
group coming together to learn'
and grow. ,

After an enlightening reunion
for those who knew each other,
the group again went their sepa-
rate ways to the homes of Student
Council ,, members from the
school.
All took advantage of the few
hours they had until the two
Student Councils came together
for a night of fun at Boomers, an
arcade where the students could
do anything from rock climbing,
to laser tag, t6o putt putt golf. The
fun filled, exhausting Wednesday
night ended with a pizza party
and a viewing of the videotape
taken at the Southern Convention
last October.
The students might have been
away from their school, but that
does not mean they got off the
hook completely. Thursday morn-
ing eight kids from a school of
about 400 students found out
what it was like to walk the halls
with 4.000 students.
They attended classes and
made a point to visit the Student


Government class. They were on
the lookout for ideas and inspira-
tion for the new leadership class
they hope to be offered'in the
upcoming school year. As the last
bell rang, they began loading up
the school bus yet another time
ready to head to Orlando.
After the three-hour trip was
stretched out an extra two fun
filled hours, all were ready to find
their motel room and rest, before
dinner. After a late meal, the
group made their second trip to-
Wal-Mart!
After sleeping in until 9:00,
the group headed to one of
Orlando's newest attractions,
Universal Studios' Island of
Adventure. Sunburned,. damp
from the wet rides, tired from run-
ling around and happy to have
found Chris' lost wallet, all 22
returned to the motel only long
enough to change and load back .
up on the bus for a night at Old
Town.
Saturday morning everyone
packed up once more ready to
head to the Airport Marriott,' the
site of the Convention, but not
before one final stop atWal-Marti
After arriving and settling into
their room, the delegates began to
discover what the'next three days
were going to be like.
Throughout the next few
days, general sessions were
attended, resolutions were voted
on and districts rallied. Everyone
grew and learned through the
workshops attended and the
guest speakers heard.
Much! can be said about the
elections held for the state offices;
what was gained as a result and
the part Port St. Joe delegates
played. Port St. Joe had the honor
of seconding the nomination of
Edgewater High. School for the
presidency.
After all business was attend-
ed to, there was time for fun and
