Gulf High Schools
Remain Accredited
The Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools accredits
high schools based on rigorous
criteria set by the association.
* Port St. Joe High School and
Wewahltchka High Schools have
been involved in the SACS school
renewal process for five years.
This process assures that schools
are constantly working on the five
required components: school cli-
mate, planning, 'staff develop-
ment, curriculum and instruc-
tion, and communication.
A team of educators trained in
the school renewal process visited
each high school last week to ver-
ify compliance of the standards.
Both high schools were lauded for
their outstanding efforts in the
required areas. The team recom-
mended continuation of their
efforts as they not only met
requirements, they exceeded
them. Dr. Milton Acton chaired
the team and has sent a letter to
SACS headquarters recommend-
ing continued accreditation .for
both schools. The administration,
faculty, and staff of each school
are to be commended for hard
work and continuous efforts to
provide Gulf county students with
only the best.


Most of old Highway 98 lies beyond the water line in St.
Joseph Bay. The old seawall and roadbed will be removed over
the next few months as the beach area is reclaimed.


Veterans Memorial, ]


and Boat Ramps Top


Gulf County commissioners
handled several major issues of
concern during their regular
meeting Tuesday evening. One of
the more emotional Issues was
broached by local businessman
Pat McFarland who asked the
board to help organize county-
wide support for a proposed World
War II war memorial being
planned for construction in
Tallahassee.
Commissioners jumped at the
opportunity to help honor veter-
ans in this way. Gulf County
Veterans Service Officer Bo
Williams was asked and agreed to
serve as chairman of a committee
which will help raise funds to pro-
vide matching money to help con-
struct the memorial.
Williams 'agreed to help in. any
way'lie could. As the committee
organizes, they will be looking for
folks wishing to help in the
process of organizing fund raisers
for this purpose.
He pointed out that there are
600,000 World War II veterans
who currently call Florida their
home.
At the timer, of the war,
248,000 Floridians answered the
call of their country; on December
7th, 1941, of that number 3,174
lost their lives defending freedom,
Williams pointed oul.
McFarland said fishermen
throughout the state organized a
gumbo fund-raiser that netted
$50,000 for the memorial last
Weekend in tallahassee.

Roberts Contracting, Inc.,
requested that the commission

Census 2000
Winds Down
Starting April 27th, those
people who have not received a
Census 2000 questionnaire, or
those who have not yet returned a
census questionnaire will be visit-
ed soon by a census employee.
These employees are hired for
the specific. purpose of collecting
the census and helping the gener-
al public fill out the census forms.
They will be also be happy to
answer questions for you regard-
ing the census information.
If you have questions regard-
ing the census and do not want to
wait for a representative to 'con-
tact you, feel free to call Marshall

Coordinator at 229-9111.


allow a little extra time for the
firm to begin construction and
resurfacing of roads on the coun-
ty's paving contract.
He explained that fuel prices
have increased considerably since
the contract was let, and there are
no contingencies in the contract
for the changes. He asked the
board to allow a few weeks' leeway
in hopes that fuel prices might fall
some during that time frame.
Roberts said if there was no
change he understood the firm's
commitment, and they would pro-
ceed with construction work as
- contracted. The board agreed with
the request, but asked Roberts to
'see if some work could be done on
the Doc Whitfleld Road (Howard
Creek) as soon as possible
because of deteriorating road con-
ditions.
Boat Ramp Grant
Commissioner Tommy Krnox
told board members that a
$30,000 saltwater boat ramp
grant is available to the county,
and recommended that a- public
ramp be installed on the Gulf
County Canal.
The plan calls for using an old
boat launch site owned by the


Erosion has long been a concern of
residents along portions of the beach
front property at Cape San Blas.
Victor Ramos brought pictures to
Tuesday's Gulf County Commission
meeting to show just how dramatic the
impact has been recently. High winds
and rough seas have eaten away large
portions of the area pictured.


St. Joe Company has initiated
the first steps toward develop-
ment of some of Its land holdings
along the beach front between
Highland View and Dixie Belle
Curve.
The Dixie Belle Curve
Subdivision will consist of 112
low density lots ranging in size
from one-third to one-half acre. If
all goes as planned, this will be
the first residential development
by the company in Gulf County.
It includes approximately 80
acres of property stretching from
just behind Butler's Restaurant
back up along the bay, and inland
to an area near the Dixie Belle
Curve. St. Joe has filed papers
with the Gulf County Building
Department seeking preliminary
plat approval for the Dixie Belle
Curve Subdivision.
If the process goes smoothly.
it will still be several months
before all the hurdles of the sub-
division permitting are completed.
"Plans are still very prelimi-
nary," said Chris Corr. Vice
President Public Affairs with St.
Joe 'Company. He further
explained that the focus of the

Port St. Joe city commission-
er have agreed to the use of the
site, but want fencing to be
installed to protect people from
outfall of the treatment plant. The
plan is contingent upon adjacent
property owners allowing use of
some of the property for parking.

Marilyn Blackwell reported
that headway was being made.
toward repairing some of the
damage along the Apalachicola
River system. A cooperative effort
Is presently underway to begin
planning those corrective mea-
sures for Virginia Cut and Corley
Slough.

development would be on single
family homes, very much In keep-
ing with most of the development
currently in progress throughout
Gulf County.
Folks will notice activity along
the waterfront in the area over the
next few months. St. Joe has
received Department of Environ-
mental Protection permits to
remove the old Highway 98
roadbed and seawall that current-
ly protrudes out into the edge of
the bay along much of the beach
front.
C. W. Roberts Contracting is
currently extracting the debris.


Port St. Joe city commission-
ers selected the proposal of Ralph
Roberson CPA to conduct its
auditing needs during a special
meeting of the board Tuesday
afternoon.
The board had ranked
Roberson's proposal as the top of
two they received (the other from
James Moore Company of
Tallahassee). During negotiations
for the service, the board agreed

Unemployment Falls
to 8.6; Still #1 In State
Gulf County's unemployment
rate Is getting better at 8.6%. but
still leads the state average by a
1.5% margin.
March's rate reflects a. fairly
large decrease from February's
rate of 10.1%. Gulf has shown
major improvement over the past
year though, with the greatest
over-the-year decline (-6.5%).

Wewahitchka Adopts
Emergency Ordinance
Wewahitchka city commis-.
sioners adopted an emergency
ordinance prohibiting the placing
of signs on city rights-of-way dur-
ing their regular meeting Monday
evening.
This comes just as political
season begins to get underway in
Gulf County. Only last week, Gulf
County commissioners discussed
the same problem, and how their
signage ordinance. dealt with not
only political, but all signage on
county rights-of way.
Wewahitchka's ordinance will
be very similar to Gulf County's.
Commissioners also passed a
resolution vacating a 50 foot inac-
tive roadway running east
between twVo parcels of land near
Lake Alice Park Drive.


These two photos were taken within
about one week of each other and show
approximatley six feet of beach erosion.
During discussion, it was noted that
the beach front is constantly -changing.
Sometimes, it goes through an erosion
phase, then reverses and rebuilds itself.
The concern is that the most recent
trends have been to erode at a greater
rate than it rebuilds.


Public Access Will Remain
Public 'access to beaches.in
the area will not be impacted by
the development.
John Hendry. Project
Manager for Anrida. said the most
popular area for public beach
access (Dixie Belle Curve just past
the project) will not be impacted.
Furthermore, there will be areas
dedicated by deed as public ease-
ments to the beach, according to
Chris Corr.
The Gulf County Planning
Development and Review Board
will likely consider the prelimi-
nary plat during its May meeting.


to a three year contract for a year-
ly fee of S22,000.
Roberson's proposal brought
on board the firm of T. Michael
Tucker CPA (of Blountstown). Port
St. Joe commissioners decided to
advertise for auditor service after
the firm of Deloitte & Touche (of.
Jacksonville) withdrew from their
auditing contract.

Judges Explore
Children, Families
In Need Issues
Addressing Juvenile Justice
Needs Focus of Conference
Judges Robert Moore, Jill
Walker and William Wright partic-
ipated in the Juvenile Judge's
Conference in Tallahassee on
April 17th and 18th sponsored by
the Florida Department of
Juvenile Justice and the Juvenile
Justice Accountability Board. It
focused on the issues concerning
children/families in need pro-
grams and the juvenile justice
process.
"This conference provided a
unique opportunity for judges to
learn more about the department
and to talk with other judges,"
said Robert Sechen, DJJ General
Counsel. "The pooling df judicial
experience at this conference pro-
vided great insight into how the
department and the judicial sys-
tern can work to achieve our goal
of reduced juvenile crime in
Florida."
The two-day session included
presentations from department
staff arid juvenile judges, as well
as Supreme Court Justice Harry
Lee Anstead. Department of
Juvenile Justice Secretary Bill
Bankhead addressed -the confer-
ees and thanked the judges for
participating in this important
dialogue.


Ramos and County Commissioner
Warren Yeager discussed -taking advan-
tage of an Army Corps of Engineers pro-
gram that will conduct studies on the
beach erosion; and possibly even address
future renourishment possibilities.
Yeager said he has already contacted the
Army Corps of Engineers and is moving
forward with those efforts.

This Has Got



To Be A Record

You better be real careful what you say about politics these
days.
Just in case you haven't noticed, we folks not running for a
political office of some type might just be getting close to being a
minority. In fact, the odds are good that one of your family mem-
bers or. close .friends has thrown his/her hat in the ring.
As of Thursday, 44 candidates have checked in at the Gulf
County Supervisor of Elections Office to voice their intentions to
run for office. Now, the staff at The Star has not kept tabs with
what the record is for the most candidates ever to run in a coun-
ty-wide election. But, one thing is for sure, if we haven't broken a'
record yet, I think it's a pretty safe bet we'll break it before the end
of qualifying in July.
Our election policy at The Star is now and has always been to
run, free of charge, a one time announcement of intention to run
for all candidates. If we had known how many people were running
this year, we might have altered that policy slightly.
Those seeking office bring by an announcement and we offer
front page space for that-complete with a picture. Over the past
several weeks, approximately one-fourth of our front page space
has been occupied with these announcements.
We have, in fact. had so many some weeks that it has been
most difficult to work all the news into the paper around the space
available.
We're proud to bring this public service to our readers and
hope that it has indeed helped them to not only see.whom the can-
didates are. but learn just a little bit about each of them.
As voters, our challenge to elect the best qualified, most suit-
able persons to fill these positions is only complicated by the num-
ber of candidates seeking election.
I heard one person comment the other day that he was going
to put a bulletin board up outside his front door upon which can-
didates can place their political propaganda.


A Better Mouse Trap

Takes a Whole Lot of Cheese
The SWATH designed boat that Gulf County Shipbuilding Is
gearing up to build at the old Dynamite Dock site on the Gulf
County Canal is truly unique.
Construction is underway on the "Nekton Rorqual" and the
dual pontoon flotation modules will be the first things construct-
ed. Those submarine like supports are connected to the main ves-
sel by leg-like structures. This allows much of the force and'action
of waves to pass between the main portion of the vessel and the
pontoons.
Gulf County Shipbuilding president John DLxson said this
decreases the effects of wave action on the ship by as much as
Eight times less than a conventional oceangoing vessel.
This could be the new wave (or wave less) of the future in boat
building technology. Who knows, maybe even I can go deep sea
fishing without calling Chuck .
Gulf County Chamber of Commerce Director Diane Scholz is
one of a handful of folks who deserves more than one could possi-
bly pay her for baring her heart and soul in an all-out effort to find
jobs for Gulf County workers, including the 61 that Gulf County
Shipbuilding will bring.
She has been patting people on the back. putting to rest stu-
pid rumors (some so silly, you wonder If they weren't started on
purpose), organized incentive packages, filed for grants, or better
yet, checked behind other folks making sure they've done what
they were supposed to do when they were supposed to do it. and
much, much more.
Ask most anyone who has dealt with her. from the governor to
Enterprise Florida, Diane Scholz is a professional. That is until
you come between her and what's good for Gulf County-then, she
turns into your worst nightmare.
Gulf County has a lot of folks working real hard for it right
now, and we are truly fortunate to have Mrs. Scholz at the top of
that list. Thanks, Diane.

these folks were calling for the U:S.

They were advocating the complete

All MySons Are Better Cooks Thank Their Wives!


A COUPLE OF weeks ago, I
wrote a column about our former
doctors here in Port St. Joe. They
came when the paper mill started
being built and served us well.
I got some of my facts sort of
backwards in telling of the life of,
Dr. Norton. I said he went back to
his home in Arkansas and died
there. This is where I went wrong.
I was gone from here during those
years, and didn't know for sure
what happened to the good doctor
and relied on what someone told
me several years ago.
After I wrote the column, I
saw Sara Maddox at church and
she set me straight.
A couple of days ago, Lyd
Stokoe drove up in the yard and
proceeded to tell me the same
story about what happened to Dr.
Norton.
There was a veteran doctor in
Wewahitchka by the name of Dr.
Meriwether. Dr. and Mrs.
Meriwether had one daughter,
named Rosenia, who married Max


ETAOIN SHRDLU





Kilbourn. "
Dr. Meriwether had some
heart problems, one- day and, Max'
called Dr. Norton to come treat
him. While Dr. Norton was treat-
ing Dr. Meriwether, Dr. Norton,
himself, had la heart attack 'and
died!
Max and Lyd are related; so I
figure she knew the true story
about the matter. .
.Sara was a practicing nurse
at the time, so I was certain she
knew the true story also.

BOTH OUR ORIGINAL young
doctors died from heart attacks!
Dr. Bartee was an elderly gen-


S.by Wesley Ramsey


tleman who practiced only when'
he wanted to. It may just have
seemed so to my young age, but it'
seemed to me that Dr. Bartee was
in his 80s.
Dr. Norton always wore, cow-,
boy boots and he took flying
lessons. He always wore a little'
thin moustache.
.Dr. Ward lived in the fast
lane, and drove a Lincoln coupe
at a pretty fair clip most of the
time. He was my doctor, so I knew"
him to be living the fast life and
loving it.
He paid for his.fast life, how-
ever.
He: owned one of the few--at


the time-cottages at Beacon Hill.
Actually, it was the largest house
at the hill. It was two story and
the present owners are just wind-
ing down with a remodeling pro-
ject.

NOW, FOR THE new material
in this week's column. I'm still
observing the advent of spring.
Spring attracts my attention
every year. From the blooming of
the redbud trees to the i-ejuvena-
tion, of the grass.
I'm not able to plant my half
dozen tomato plants this year,
but I had more fresh tomatoes
given me last year than I grew,
myself.
I see no reason, why the same
situation shouldn't prevail this
year as well. I
Neither can I mow my own
grass, but I have a good mower to
do it for me and I don't have to
worry about it. He does almost as
well as I would do myself, he even
fertilizes.


MY NUMBER ONE son-, Ray,
is helping me cope; with the
advent of spring, -this year. Ray
likes to cook and he does a good
job of it.
He likes to 'cook almost as
'good 'as he likes .to hunt.
This spring, it seems as if he
is obsessed with cooking more
than 'usual., He comes over- and
thumbs through Frenchie's cook-
ing magazines for new recipes
'and ideas.,
He's always bring over a sam-
ple of his latest culinary effort,
such as smoked turkey or salmon
spread, beef or summer sausage,
blue cheese salad dressing, oyster
stew, or some other dish he has
whipped up.
Lately, he has decided he
wants to make some dinrier rolls.
He has asked his mother for a
recipe,' and comes over about
every day to see if she has -his
recipe yet.
He's always been into barbe-
cuing, frying turkeys and prepar-


ing wild game to where it Is deli-
cious .
S Actually, all my sons are
excellent cooks. I hate to say this,
but they are better cooks than
their wives. '. L

EVERY YEAR AT Christmas,
we'have a huge family dinner and
they all cook up what happens ,to
be their specialties at the tinle.
We've' had clamd chowder, chili,
crepe suzette, deer roast,
E'toufee, shrimp creole, and ma y
other delicate and filling dishes,
But, Ray is on a cooking
binge, right now. There's po
telling what he is going to come
up with next. .
I'm just glad to be his "guinea
pig" and test his gastronomic
experiments.
I live in fear that all of my kids
will, get the "cooking fever" at the
same time, providing more dishes
than I can test without gaining
too much weight. I wouldn't dare
leave one out!

late Richard Foy and Marguerite

brother to Julia.

In April 1995, at Boston

Massachusetts, Nickolas. under-
went his second open heart
surgery. The reconstruction left
him with only half of a heart,
allowing 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 demand on 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. There are regular visits
to Shands Hospital in Gainesville,
as well as annual trips to Boston.

was a willingness to discuss some
specific roads, but no records
existed to dispute the fact that the
roadways belonged to the St. Joe

Commission Chairman Billy
Traylor also pointed out that he
had spoken with Smallwood con-
cerning the Ditch Landing Road. -
Traylor said it was a good possi-
bility that this road could be con-
sidered for opening.
Stanley noted that some addi-

have always been important to
me. I think the greatest reward
that an individual can give is ser-
vice to his community and I do
that every chance I get," Lawson
said. .
During his House tenure, the
Democrat served on a number of
communities, chairing many of
them.
"I know, what it means to -
work hard. I have fought hard for
increased salaries and benefits for
state workers. I have supported
-measures to help keep health pre-
miums down, to provide meaning-
ful economic development, quality
education and a better quality of
life in our communities," Lawson
stated.
"I have always stood tall for.

in general," Lawson added.

Like many others in Gulf
County, the Scheffer family lost
their medical insurance when the
paper mill closed, leaving them
with Florida, Medipass/Medicaid
for the children.
In order for Nickolas to use
Florida Medicaid out of the state
of Florida, it must first be
approved through Tallahassee.



Lte Bid
"District 3 needs an effective voice
for North Florida, someone with a
proven track record to' help those
who hold up their end of the sky
for their families."
Lawson pledges to promote
regional economic development
linking business, government,
and education; provide for higher
salaries and benefits for state
employees and retirees; increase
funding for kindergarten through
twelfth 'grade and higher educa-
tion: protect the underground
water supply and keep toxic waste
dumps out of North Florida: and
provide quality and affordable
health care for all citizens, espe-
cially children and the elderly.
In other words, Lawson would
like to level the playing field in the
district, which includes Bay,
Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden,
Gulf, Jackson, Leon, Liberty.
Madison, Jefferson and Wakulla
counties.
Lawson joined the House of
Representatives in 1982, has
served as Deputy Majority Whip
and chaired.. vice-chaired, co-
chaired, or served as a member of
a multitude of governmental com-
mittees; is currently the chairman
of the Leon County Legislative
Delegation; and was chairman of
the Florida Conference of Black
State Legislators. He co-chaired
the Task Force on State Health
Benefits.
Lawson has received out-
standing legislative awards from a
wide variety of organizations.
Over the years, he has served on
a variety of boards and founda-
tions...
Before joining the legislature,
Lawson played professional bas-
ketball with the Indiana Pacers.

"Big Band Sound" From
Tallahassee Swing Band
On Sunday, April 30, at
Lafayette Park in Apalachicola,
the Ilse Newell Fund for the
Preforming Arts will present the
Tallahassee Swing Band, "Big
Band Sound of the 1930's, 40's,
and 50's." Open to the public, this
concert is free.
The band will be playing a
variety of big band music, and
such swing era classics as Glenn
Miller's "In the Mood," and Woody
Herman's "Woodchopper's Ball."
The Ilse Newell Fund is spon-
sored by the Apalachicola Area
Historical Society, a 501-(c)-3,
non-profit, educational corpora-
tion.
Tallahassee Swing is a 17-
piece dance band, dedicated to
preserving the big band sounds of
the swing era. During the 1930's,
40's, and early 50's, swing music
dominated the popular music
scene. Center stage were the big
band of Benny Goodman, Tommy
Dorsey, Glenn Miler, Duke
Ellington, Count Basie, and a host
of others who offered a rich rhyth-
mic sound that had grown out of
the smaller jazz groups of the
1920's.
The musicians of Tallahassee
Swing recreate those sounds for
listening and dancing. The band's
repertoire also includes music
from the Broadway stage, Latin
American rhythms, waltzes, and
big band rock'n roll arrange-
ments.
The music of Tallahassee
Swing has been heard on local
and national radio. The musicians
have performed on local television
programs, for the "Celebrate
America" program on the Fourth
of July, and for numerous bene-
fits, parties; concerts, and dances.
For more than 10 years they
have played every Tuesday night
at the American Legion Post at
Lake Ella, in Tallahassee. These
dances are open to the pubic, and
the music starts at 7:30 p.m.
In 1997, Tallahassee Swing
released "For Sentimental
Reasons," their second recording
of Big Band Dance Music.
The band's musical director is
Elliot Toole, and the business
manager is Pat Cook.

How Can Our Program Help You ?
A physician cannot typically order an Ultrasound evaluation on someone who has
no warning signs of vascular disease. However, over 50% of people who suffer a stroke
show no symptoms before the attack, and therefore are unaware of the potential problem.
We provide non-invasive painless screenings that can identify vascular disease which can be
used as valuable information for your personal physician to help you avoid a stroke.
Life Line Screening is the nation's leading provider of health screening services.
We'll be in PORT SAINT JOE

Federal Cons6mer Protection has confirmed that the fuel saving claims of this advertisement are 100% accurate.
Gov't. Confirms: Engine Platinum Increases Gas Mileage


BOSTON Federal Consumer
Protection describes the Platinum
Gas Saver as "an effective fuel
saving device which brings about
more complete combustion and
better gas mileage in automobile
engines by means of platinum
catalysis."
Their five year study concluded:
"Independent testing shows
greater fuel savings with the
Gas Saver than the 22% claimed
by the developer, National
Fuelsaver Corp. of Boston."
With a simple connection to a
vacuum line, the Gas Saver
adds microscopic quantities of
platinum to the combustion
process inside your engine.
Since platinum has the unique


ability to make non-burning fuel
bum, the Gas Saver's platinum
increases the percentage of fuel
burning inside the engine from
68% of each gallon to 90% of
each gallon, a 22% increase.
Since unbumt fuel leaving an
engine is pollution, that 22% of
each gallon would normally bum
when it reaches the platinum of
the catalytic converter.
Unfortunately, the converter's
platinum bums this fuel in the
tail pipe, where the heat and
energy produced from burning
this fuel cannot.be harnessed to
drive your vehicle.
But when the Gas Saver adds
,platinum to engine combustion,
22% more of each gallon


bums inside the engine so that
22% fewer gallons are required
to drive the same distance.
In addition to this study, the
Gas Saver has received patents
for cleaning out the carbon and
raising octane, making premium
fuel unnecessary for most vehicles.
. Joel Robinson, the developer,
commented: "We have sold
over 400,000 Gas Savers. To our
surprise, as many people buy
the Gas Saver because it extends
engine life (by cleaning out the
abrasive carbon deposits) as
buy it to increase gas mileage
or to raise octane."

Government Produced
Test Data
The government studied fuel saving
test data on vehicles made by several
auto makers using the Gas Saver.
This is the data they produced from
a fleet of 15 identical 5-liter vehicles.

Smith Family
Fund Set Up
A fund to help with expenses
for Christy and John Smith has
been set up by her co-workers at
Emerald Coast Federal Credit
Union. The young couple was
expecting their first children, a
set of fraternal twins, when
Christy went into early labor.
After several weeks of trying
to prevent Christy, who is five
months pregnant, from going into
full labor, their infant son was
born April 17. He died shortly
after birth. Christy's gynecologist
has taken necessary measures to
prevent further labor, and she is
completely bedridden at Gulf
Coast Hospital in Panama City,
trying to give their daughter as
much time as possible to develop
before she must be delivered. A
sonogram early this week estimat-
ed her weight at approximately
one pound.
The Smith and Gay families
extend their heartfelt thanks to
the, many people of the
community who have opened
their hearts to them, and offered
prayers for their children and
grandchildren. Visitation is limit-
ed to immediate family members,
but the couple and their families
covet your continued prayers for
their infant daughter' as she
struggles to develop.
Anyone wishing to help with
their expenses may make a dona-
tion to -the Christy Smith Fund at
Emerald Coast Federal Credit
Union in' Port St. Joe,
Wewahitchka., or Mexico Beach.

On Monday evening, April 10,
the Gulf County.Republican party
covered a lot of ground when they
gathered at the "Villa San
Pedro"-the home of Dr. and Mrs.
Jorge San Pedro in Port St. Joe.
It was especially exciting to
see and hear from five local
Republican candidates vying for
county positions in this year's
election.
Joining with the Republican
Party Executive Committee and'
other faithful party members were
Allen Cox and Gary White (both
running for County Commission
Seat 5), City Commissioner Jorge
San Pedro (pursuing County
Commission Seat 3), Cindy Belin
(seeking the Supervisor of
Elections position), and Marshall
Nelson (running for County Tax
Collector).
Also in attendance was Tim
Stein who is an "announced"
Republican candidate lor the U.S.
Congressional district seat 3. He
was joined by his wife, Suzanne:,
Aside from the typical array of
questions, answers, and discus-
sions to and from the candidates,
the party got down to the busi-

Turpentine Etched Into Gulf County's History

Decendents of Pioneers Remember the Early Days of the IndustryWhen Turpentining Was King in Northwest Florida


by Caroline Hunsley
"Few Floridians know that
turpentine was once the state's
second largest industry..." wrote
George M- Burnett in his 1986
book titled, Florida's Past, People
and Events That Shaped the State.
Sir John Hawkins apparently
discovered Florida's turpentine in
1565 and took the news of an
available source of boat rosin
back to England. English turpen-
tine operations didn't actually
begin in Virginia until the 17th
century and within two hundred
years had moved into the
Carolinas. "By the end of the 19th
century," says Burnett, "the pines
of Georgia had been laid waste."
Florida was next.
Turpentine camps were clus-
tered across north Florida by the
turn of the century, "pushing in
deep and southerly from a line
along the Old Spanish Trail (SR
9(0), from Crestview west to Lake
* City east."(Florida's Past, People
and Events That Shaped the
State.)
A true pioneer effort, turpen-
tihling required strong survival
skills: strength, knowledge,
resourcefulness, and flexibility to
name a few. Because of. the
remote locations of its distilleries
(stills) and its labor intensive
nature, the turpentine business
was a difficult lifestyle to endure.
In order to better appreciate
the harsh routine of these camps ,
arid the lifestyles of- the people
who ran them, it is helpful to first
understand the basic steps,
involved in turpentining.
The longleaf yellow pines of
north Florida were perfect for the
turpentine trade and more desir-
able than the northern pines, as
they were resistant to fire, in spite
of their flammable contents.
The process went something
like this: First, the trees were
faced to extract the raw gum
(known also as pitch or resin). To
face a tree meant that a thin slab
of bark and wood was removed
frOm the base of the tree with a
broad ax. The faced area was
referred to as being slabbed.
The trees were then streaked
(chipped or pulled), indicated by
slanted cuts 1/2" to 3/4" deep'
made into the slabbed surfaces.
The lowest cut was made about
12" above the ground. Galvanized
iron gutters (tins or aprons) were
inserted in these streaks to direct
the gum flow.


were paved and Mr. Belin had his
spirits and gum hauled to
Pensacola by truck.
A fire in 1937 destroyed the
still. Jake Belin saw the smoke
from a porgyboat, jumped over-
board and swam to shore to help
his father fight the fire.
Jim Guilford of St. Joe Beach
remembers those days too. His
father, James R. Guilford, was a
woodsrider (foreman) and a truck
driver for about four years for
Jake and Leonard Belin's father
(1929-1933). He earned about
forty dollars a month in the tur-

with a hack, a tool called a puller
was used. Streaks could be made
as high as five feet up from the
original cut.
Itwas a slow process waiting
for the gum to flow. It could take
days for a cup, (about one pint), to
fill. In order for a business to
operate economically, it had to be
large-scale. Ten thousand cups
equaled a "crop" (about 50 acres).
4"A single operator (could) have a
thousand crops set out at one
time, covering 50,000 acres."
Once the cup was full, it was
dipped and its contents trans-
ferred to a large barrel to be taken
to the still. The term "dipping"
came from an earlier method used
to gather the gum. The' method
was known as "boxing." In the
earliest days of turpentining
(around the mid 1920's), a box or
cavity (hole) was carved into a tree
using a box ax. When this cavity
was filled, the gum was "dipped"
out.
After dipping, when the bar-
rels were full, they were hauled by
wagon to a loading ramp (about
10'x12') at the still. Dip barrels
weighed about 600 pounds each.
The gum from these barrels-
were used to 'charge". the still
Barrels full of sticky resin -were
emptied into the top of a large


~J'.


James T. McNeill, Jr. displays broad ax used in facing.


Next the trees were cupped.
Clay and later tin cups were
placed on' each tree to catch the
o flow of gum running down the
gutters. At one or two week inter-
vals, more "streaks" were made
on the tree, above, the existing
gutters, using a tool called a
hack. For streaks too high to cut


copper still kettle. When the kettle
was full, its lid was tightened and
the kettle was "fired."
Firing 'the kettle required a
great deal of wood. The fire itself
was built in the furnace and did
not touch the kettle, but heated
the air in a cavity surrounding the
kettle. After the hot air circulated


around the kettle, it was drawn
off through a flue in the chimney.
It took about eight to 10 bar-
rels to "charge" the still and had
to cook about two hours before
the still' was 'fully charged. While
the charge cooked, the turpentine
and water vapors (spirits of tur-
pentine) were 'forced through an
outlet in the cap to the condens-
ing coils. 'These ran through a
tank of cool Water that condensed
the vapor inside the coil and then
emptied, the resulting liquid into
the first separating barrel.
In this first barrel, the spirits
floated to the top and ran into a
second, shorter barrel, where the
water was drained periodically
from the bottom.
A steam pump was used to
pump water from a well or a pond
to the tank containing the con-
densation coils. As the vapor
passing through the coils warmed
the water in the tank, cool water
was added to maintain the tem-
perature necessary for condensa-
tion.
The stiller, or ithe man in
charge of the still, would drain a
sample and could tell when it was
right. As soon as a "charge" Fin-
Sished' cooking, the kettle was
uncapped and allowed to cool
until it stopped frothing. Then the
tailgate leading from the kettle to
the rosin vat was opened and the
hot rosin poured into the vat.
Here the heated, fluid rosin
was strained through cotton bat-
ting in troughs and transferred to
barrels. Once it cooled in the bar-
rels, the rosin solidified into a
brittle, translucent mass. About
four charges were processed every
day.
Rosin was graded by color,
and was predominantly a dark
red. Its diversity is proven in
industry, as it has been used as
'the solidifying agent in yellow
laundry soap,, sizing' or water
proofing all kinds of paper and
paper containers, used in
linoleum making, in varnish and
in the paint and oil industry.
A barrel of spirits of turpen-
tine weighed about 500 pounds,
while a barrel of rosin weighed
about 200-250 pounds. After they
were prepared, the barrels were
rolled into the rosin yard nearby
and later loaded onto wagons for
transport to a port city.
James T. McNeill, Jr. of
Indian Pass remembers north
Florida's turpentine days. His
father, born at the onset of the
Civil War, settled in the Indian
Pass area in 1903, formed a part-
nership with three other men
(Higgins, Hollinger and Rhodes),
and bought approximately 13,000
acres to start a turpentine busi-
ness.
The acreage included about
1/3 of St. Joseph Peninsula and
reached from the Franklin County
line to Butler's Restaurant and
about two miles inland. It exclud-
ed Jones Homestead, Port St. Joe
and a few other areas owfied by
private individuals and compa-
nies. Most of the property was
purchased for one or two dollars
per acre. The least expensive land
was beachfront, while the- most
expensive cost seven dollars per
acre.
This extensive acreage is no
longer owned by the McNeill's,
;and in fact, the U.S. government
forced the partnership to sell to
them the St. Joseph Peninsula
package for war operations during
WWII at nine dollars per acre.
McNeill recalls the turpentine
still being located about 1/4 mile
from where the Indian Pass Raw
Bar stands today. The still site, he
says, included 20-25 homes, a
church, cooper's shed (where bar-
rels were made for turpentine and


rosin and for hauling raw prod-
ucts), blacksmith shop, glue
shed, syrup house (which was
destroyed in a 1955 fire), barn,
wagon shed, horse and mule lot,
smokehouse, chicken yard and
milk cows and later in the 1920's
and early 1930's; a commissary,
and post office (of which McNeill'
mother was the postmistress).
McNeill's family, hauled the
barrels 1 1/2 miles from the still
to the Clearmont dock in Indian
Lagoon, where they were loaded.
on the Clearmont and taken to
Apalachicola for loading on the
Tarpon, to be shipped to
Pensacola.
Business boomed during WWI
and for a few years afterwards,
when turpentine demand
increased with the need for rosin
(for sealing boots and ships) and
paint (made from turpentine).
When the 'stock market
crashed in 1929, hundreds of
barrels of rosin sat in the dis-
tillery yard with no sales pending.

mill?~hI1


Around 1935 Guilford's
father started working with
Guilford's maternal grandfather,
William G. Hardy, at Overstreet.
They helped with Hardy's turpen-
tine and sugar cane business for
about two years, before Guilford's
father started his own dairy farm
and began his job at the newly
opened timber mill. .
Hardy moved his turpentine
business from the Wetappo Creek
area to Overstreet a few years.
after he purchased it, and operat-
ed it until about 1943. In his later
years of manufacture, Guilford's

vide a modest living for his family..
.While his father worked in the
Port St. Joe area, Guilford's fami-a
ly lived in, a two bedroom house
on the McNeill property, where
Guilford's brother and sister were
born. The family depended on
kerosene for their lighting and
pumped water from a ground
well. Guilford attended the one
room schoolhouse and recalls rid-
ing to McNeill's general store
(Indian Pass) for the family's sup-

grandfather was mainly market-
ing rosin to a Tallahassee dis-
tillery.
A demanding business,
Hardy's operation required the
skills and labor of approximately
thirty employees, one mule team,
a couple of oxen teams, and a few
trucks. His streakers chipperss or
pullers) were paid about $2.00
per .barrel of gum or about thirty
dollars per month. Dippers
earned about ten dollars a month
if they were good at their job.
At one time, says Guilford,
there were three different stills
operating at Overstreet. Other
stills in the north Florida area
included Mood Davis' (Guiilford's
first cousin) still at Farmdale, and
George Waller's still near, Davis
Beach, which stopped operating
around. the mid 1940's.
(See TURPENTINE on Page 10A)


Streaks made with hack to create sap flow in long leaf
pine could reach as high as six feet from the ground.


Prices were; very low and McNeill's
father kept feeding the crew from
the commissary in spite of busi-
ness being slack.
In 1930 or 1931, the business
was leased to Belin and Bullard
(Jake and Leonard's father and
cousin), while McNeill's father
kept the commissary and did well
for. several years. By then roads

When he was not in school,
Guilford was helping with the tur-
pentine business. Sometimes he
would ride on horseback with his
father to assess the work being
done. Other times he would help
with the dipping and hauling the
heavy dip buckets to empty them
into the gum barrels.

Month is right around the corner,

early, one Up 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 seven
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 weeks Tip # 4. Know
your children's friends and
their families. Friends have a
strong influence on each other, so
help your children and teenagers
become friends with kids whose
families share your values. Some
parents of teens even arrange to.
meet with the parents of their
children's friends to establish


common rules and expectations.
It is easier to enforce a curfew
that all your child's friends share
rather than one that makes him
or her different-but even if your
views don't match those of other
parents, hold fast to your convic-
tions. Welcome your child's friend
into your home and talk to them
openly.

industries and later another
world war, the. people who were
once involved in turpentining
changed too. Some turned to the
readily available fishing industry
while others evolved their own
farms or went to work for the
newly instated paper mill in Port
St. Joe. Many of these families
remain in the Port St. Joe area


today.
Turpentining played an inte-
gral role in the development of
Florida as a state and the Port St.

of the century. The tenacity,
endurance and skills required to
successfully operate a turpentine
business are still evident today.
Like their predecessors, -the
decendents of the turpentine pio-
neers continue a legacy .of
resourceful survival in an ever
changing economy.

Larry Signs With Santa Fe CC Wed.


Kedrick Larry, a 6'4" senior
forward for the Port St. Joe Tiger
Sharks, signed a national letter of
intent to play basketball for Santa
Fe Community College in Gaines-
ville, Wednesday morning at Port
St. Joe High School. Larry and fel-
low teammate Travis Jenkins,
who signed with Santa Fe two
weeks ago, will play for the Saints
this fall.
Kedrick led the Tiger Sharks,
which lost to Hialeah Champag-
nat in the Class 2A Finals, in
scoring Athis season with 15.3
points per game. He also led the
team in rebounding (7.7 per
game), and averaged 2.2 assists
per game.
Larry was selected to the
Class 2A All-Tournament Team
after putting up 13 points and
seven rebounds against Havana
Northside,' and 21 points with six
rebounds against Champagnat in
the Lakeland Center. He was also
a first team All-State selection,
and was picked to play in the
North-South All-Star game, but
couldn't participate in it because
Port St. Joe was playing Cham-
pagnat in the Class 2A Champi-
onship game on the same day.


Larry will be playing for the
Saints this fall under head coach
Monte Towe. Towe was the start-
ing point guard earning All-
Atlantic Coast Conference honors
* on the University of North Caroli-
na State's 1974 national champi-
onship team, and later was Norm
Sloan's assistant at NC State.
Towe spent two years in the NBA

As an assistant at the Univer-
sity of Florida, Towe helped guide

tation Tournaments including the
NIT Final Four in 1985-86, a
Southeastern Conference Cham-
pionship in 1988-89, and three

ciation Tournament appearances

and were Mid-Florida Conference


Champions in the 1996-97, 1997-

ence Tournament Championship

ment in Marianna.
"You're always happy when
you recruit and sign a player like
Kedrick," said Santa Fe head
coach Monte Towe. "I'm very excit-
ed about him as a young man and
a basketball player. Kedrick is a
real talented young man- he is a
first team All-State selection, All-
Big Bend and contributed signifi-
cantly to all of those state cham-
pionship teams and the team that
went to the finals this year during
his time at Port St. Joe."

Youth Looking for Summer

Employment Information


The Youth Council of the Gulf
Coast Workforce Development
Board met April 11, and deter-
mined to extend current youth
projects to June 30, 2001.
Under the Job Training
Partnership .Act (JTPA) summer
youth training and employment
programs were a separate funding
stream. In past years. hundreds
of area youth have been placed in
subsidized public sector intern-
ship.
The-Workforce Investment Act
of 199g, which replaced JTPA in
Florida on July 1, 1999, has no
separate provision for such sum-
mer programs, focusing instead.
on year-round provision of ser-
vices to youth. Although W1A
'directs the provision of year-


round services, there has been no
corresponding increase in fund-
ing. Accordingly there may be a
significant decrease in the num-
ber of low-income youth served in
summer employment programs.
Youth service providers are in
the processwoef designing their pro-
grams to cover the period for this
summer and beyond. Further
Information concerning those pro-
grams will be disseminated
through the local Workforce
Development Board office as soon
:,as it becomes available.
In the' meantime, parents
seeking information regarding
programs fri Gulf County should
contact Sara Joe Woolen at 229-
6940.

"A Special Thanks"
The' people of Gulf County
have endured some of the worst
times for any county, but after
every storm there is always a
rainbow. There is a company in
Gulf County, "Gulf Fabricating,"
owned by Frankie Williams and
Glenn Shiver. They have continu-
ally employed several skilled
employees at a livable rate of pay.
This deserves the first pat on, the
back.
These two gentlemen have ,
also supplied all of the welding
metals for the Port St. Joe High,
welding program, as well, as for
the Gulf Coast welding program.
This generosity has saved the
taxpayers, the school, arid the
college thousands of dollars. Also,
they have hired some of the high
school graduates and Gulf Coast
students and helped them further.
their training and skills. This
deserves another pat on the back
and a big thank you.
So, as you drive by their shop
on Highway 98, blow your horn or
wave as a way of showing your
thanks to them. ,
If'you cross paths with tb.em "
at the ball fields or at the local,
stores, stop and take time to
thank them.
Frankie Williams and Glenn
Shiver. I personally want to say
thanks, for helping your-
community when it needs you.

Mrs. James presented a one

especially teachers, to look at
teaching students and daily living
with dignity and to strive for a
spirit of personal excellence.'
An APPLES audience listens
to personal stories and laughs.
They are given a chance to learn
new ideas about why students
and adults are behaving the, way
they behave. Since its inception in
January, 1999, APPLES has been
presented at other workshops
such as, FTP-NEA Multicultural
Concerns Conference, Alternative

tutes, church and community
groups.

Things you' probably didn't
know:
1. Leonardo DaVinci took 10
years to paint Mona Lisa's lips.
2. The original name for but-
terfly is flutterby..

P.E. Wellness Tip of the Week
"TQ FAT OR TOO THIN"
Some people think that your
weight is determined by only how
much you eat. That's just part of
it. Your weight is also determined
by how much your parents or rel-
atives weigh, and that's called
genetics and body type.
Activity also effects your
weight. Suppose that you are
inactive and spend most of your,
free time watching TV. Your body
doesn't need as many calories as
it would if you played baseball,
football, basketball, walking,' jog-
ging, or skating instead.
But remember, people, natu-
rally are different shapes and
sizes. Big kids and small kids
both may be the right weight and
height based on their genetics.
and body type,

In a society, which continues
to grow increasingly complex, we
often find ourselves at a loss
when helping youngsters deal
with the specific issues ,in their
lives. .
Often, however, help may be
as; close as the nearest public, or_.
school library. In addition to the <
countless advice booksdirected at';
parenting, there is a wealth of
children's books, fiction, which,
can be used to help youngsters
better handle their particular cir-
cumstances.
Bibliotherapy is the use of
books to help people solve prob-
lems. It is the intentional use of
poetry and other forms ,of litera-
ture for healing and personal
growth. This idea is not a new
one, but rather one that can be
traced back to the first libraries in
Greece.
In the medical community,
interactive bibliotherapy refers to
the 'use of literature, discussion,
and creative writing with children
in schools and hospitals, adults
in growth and support groups,
and older persons in senior citi-
zen centers and nursing homes.
It has been used to promote -
healing and growth in psychiatric
units, community mental health
centers, and chemical dependen-
cy units.
However, parents don't have
to possess degrees in psychology.
'and therapy to enjoy the benefits
a carefully selected book may
offer their children. Quality fiction
written especially for young read-
ers can help children cope with
such issues as the death of a
loved one. illness, divorce and
blended families, a new baby, and
even a playground bully.
Parents wishing assistance in
making selections appropriate -for,
their child's specific circum-
stances are encouraged to talk
with WES Media Specialist Donna
Fettinger or the helpful personnel
at our public library. The Internet
also features lists of appropriate
books.
When you open a book, you
open a world of possibilities.
Share a book with your child
today.
