Drug Dealer's Plans Collapse

80 Lbs. ofMarijuana Is Confiscated After 3-Month Investigation


Eighty pounds of high grade
marijuana (valued at approxi-
mately $80.000), a, Nissan 300-
ZX, Chevrolet Corvette, and trac-
tor trailer were seized after the
arrest of a Bay County man on
various drug dealing charges.
The arrest occurred after a
three month investigation with
members of the Gulf County

Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)
agents and the Bay County
Sheriffs Office. Ward Weakly. 54
year old resident of northern Bay

Thursday night (May 25) after he.
delivered 50 pounds of marijuana
to an undercover officer at St. Joe
Beach.
According to Gulf County
Sheriff Frank McKeithen, the
investigation began when under-
cover officers made contact, with
Weakly who was looking for an
outlet for distribution in the
Panhandle and Gulf County area.
Gulf County Sheriffs Office inves-
tigator Tim Hightower posed as a
local undercover prospect for that
job.

Unbeknownst to Weakly, the
drop zone. a convenience store'at
St. Joe Beach, was the site of a
full scale undercover operation.
McKefthen said numerous offi-
cers, complete with surveillance
equipment, lay in waiting for the

transported to Gulf Pines Hospital
by ambulance personnel. He was

Wreck Results In Bees with A Swarming Case of Road Rage


Fishermen have already begun using this prime parcel of land.


Incensed Insects swarmed
around a wreck on Tuesday, May
30, making a bad situation worse
and assistance painfully difficult
for emergency personnel. Around
4:00 p.m., a car going south on
Highway 71 crashed into the back


of a pickup truck at the intersec-
tion of Bill Nelson Road and
Highway 71. The pickup truck,
driven by Ben Lanier, was trans-
porting bees.

Deputies Paul Beasley and


Bert Lanier and Inspector Larry
Hightower of the Gulf County
Sheriffs Office responded to the
emergency call. The Dalkeith Fire
Department and Wewahitchka
Fire Department also responded
to the call and helped to direct


traffic at the scene of the acci-
dent.
Wewahitchka Emergency
Medical Services transported the
driver of the car to Bay Medical
Center.

An Editorial Commentary Column Written by Willie Ramsey, Editor


Morally Blind


Supreme Court

No Longer Sees Any

Constitutional Difference Between
Free Speech and Pornography
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled (5-4) on May 22nd that
Congress went too far in requiring cable TV systems to fully
scramble sexually-oriented television channels if they do riot
restrict such networks to overnight hours.
Sometimes we receive input on issues that explains our
feelings even better than we can. The following are comments
made by Robert W. Peters, President of Morality in Media, on
the day of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in United States v.
Playboy Entertainment Group (No. 98-1682):
"Today, a majority of the Supreme Court held that the same
constitutional standard applies, regardless of whether the gov-
ernment is attempting to regulate political discussion and
debate on a public street or attempting to protect children
from hardcore depictions of sex that intrude uninvitedly into
the home.
"Today, a majority of the Court treated government's 'com-
pelling' interests in protecting children and the privacy of the
home as not so compelling after all and crippled even further
the right of the nation to 'maintain a decent society.'
"Today, a majority of the Court refused to accept the
assessment of Congress that exposing children to the sex talk
and imagery found in imperfectly scrambled signals for porn
films is harmful to children. Proof of moral harm, said the
Court, was lacking.
"Today, a majority of the Court appeared unaware or
unconcerned that most parents do not act to protect their
children from pornography, whether it enters the home via the
telephone, TV or Internet. until after a problem has already
occurred and the damage is done.
"Today, a majority of the Court greatly undermined the
power of government to assist parents in their already difficult
task of raising children in an increasingly morally debased
society.
"Today, a majority of the Court adopted the legal and moral
reasoning of the porn industry and A.C.L.U.; and, in the
process, pushed this nation one step closer to the brink of
moral anarchy."
Morality in Media submitted a friend of the court brief to
the Supreme Court in the case. Prior to the trial of the case in
U.S. District Court in Delaware, MIM had provided the U.S.
Justice Department with a list of cable customers who had
complained to MIVI about being able to hear and see unordered
cable porn because the. signals were inadequately scrambled.
MORALITY IN MEDIA is a non-profit national interfaith
organization, with headquarters in New York City. working
through constitutional means to curb traffic in obscenity and
to uphold standards of decency in the mainstream media.

Hunker Down With Kes by Kesley Colbert


Lest We Forget...


I was very young the first time
I saw it. I was up in the attic, prob-
ably chasing bad guys off the
range with Roy or Hoppy. I was piL-
ing up some books and papers to
hide behind-It caught my eye and
immediately suspended my 'cow-
boy games.
It was an old Life Magazine:.
The picture on the front cover was


an Amencan soldier lying face
down In the sand. Dead! His hel-
met was still on, his arms were at
his side and the toes of his boots
had etched out small holes in the
sand ....
It was evenly quiet on that
beach. I could feel it. I could see it
in the picture.: The fighting might
still be going ,,on. It could, in fact,
be very close. And probably was!
But not for this soldier. It was the
loneliest looking picture I had ever
seen,
It was the quietest picture I
have ever seen.'
I remember thinking, they call
it Life Magazine and then put a


guy with absolutely no life right
on the front cover Seemed a right
smart backwards to my little mind.
It was World War II. 1 could tell
by the uniform. That war had been
over for seven or eight years It's
amazing how my Mother doesn't
throw away anything.
Life goes on, and so did mine.
I was in high school, oblivious to
most anything except being cool. .
. I was rummaging through some
things upstairs, looking for that
thin black belt with the double
buckles Leon had discarded-
There it was again! And just
like before, I dropped everything to
study on that soldier. It was almost


J U


like I was getting to know him. 1
stared at the crinkles in his shi-l.
His hair looked dark but it's hard
to tell In back and white. I
searched closely for a wound. I
wondered what he was thinkirig
when he was tucking his pants
Into those boots ....
How did he get to that desolate
looking beach? What kind of moth-
er did he have? Did he have a"y
brothers? Was he married? I
peered in as close as I could .-'.
You just couldn't see enough of his
face to even guess at his age.
But he was young-you just
know that. And somehow I could-:
n't help but wonder about *thie:
future that he didn't have. Do you
reckon he knows that we won! I
know he cares. You don't end up
face down in the sand in some God
forsaken place ten thousand miles'
from home unless you care! .,.-
I thought of my Father. He
spent four years "over there." ,H6e
went on eight major invasions. He
was cut. off behind enemy lines
once for seventeen nerve racking
days. He "returned" to the;
Philippines three weeks before,
MacArthur waded ashore. He was
sitting on Luzon, awaiting orders
to invade mainland Japan when'
we dropped the atomic bomb.
He came homer-Alivel I asked
him once about war and his
"action" and.what was it like to be
a hero. He quietly but firniyt-
brushed me off. He wasn't going'td
discuss it. He never did. Except,
once. in a very quiet and reverent
tone, he paid tribute to my friend
in the sand, "Son, the real heroes
are the ones we left behind." -
Years later, Dad had suci
cumbed to cancer, Mother's hair
had turned to silver, and I was
back In the attic, showing my two
wild Indians where I used to play .
. Jesse got to looking through
bunch of old magazipes-
"Wait a second, son. Let me
see that one." .
Unbelievable! There was mry
soldier. 'A little yellowed.' A little
ragged around the edges. But thj
mute message leaping off of that-
cover was as strong. as straight
forward, as poignant-as ever!
I looked at two little boys who'
had never known anything but
peace. I silently thanked this.
unknown friend once again. Hisj
deed did not go unnoticed. He did
not die in vain. And I promised
him that when Josh and Jess were
old enough, they would under-
stand!
-The magazine may have fadedl
.. .but not the exploits of so many
like this one who "got left behind."
'I think over the years we get al
little jaded by the numbers.J
Almost siLty thousand died in'
this conflict. We lost four hundreds
thousand in that war. One hun-i
dred and eighty sLr died at the
Alamo. We gave Up forty thoti-

Smudgie .

I WOKE UP IN the middle of
the night recently, with a sense
6f. pressure on my feet. I lay-
there a few minutes. coming Y
awake and realizing that my feet
were being crowded from their
.accustomed position in the bed.,
I tried to ignore the crowded
conditions, but the more I, tried
to ignore them the .more uncom-
fortable they became. I need'
room for my feet at night.
"I tried moving them to the
right and I tried moving them to
the left. It,.didi't 'matter which
way. I 'tried to 'move them, it was
still uncomfortable. The ball :of
pressure just wouldn't budge! It.
seemed as if it was there to stay
and seemed to weigh at least a.
hundred pounds. There was no
moving it.
Finally, I became desperate. I
got up, only to discover that the
'object trying to usurp the space
normally claimed by my feet was
'only Smudgie.
Smudgie normally sleeps at


Tries To Take More Than Her Share Of The Bed


ETAOIN SHRDLU


Written by Wesley Ramsey


the foot of the bed. but she has
her space and it isn't that space
normally occupied by my feet.
She was breaking in new ter-
ritory on this particular night.

'WELL,: I GOT BACK in the
bed and began to root myself a.
place to put my feet, in comfort.
I pushed and shoved, trying
to move Smudgie over to, a new
position in the bed,: only to have
my efforts greeted with a growl.
Smudgie was actually growl-
ing at me.
I figured' she was asleep and
didn't know what she was doing.
So, I shoved even' harder- in an


attempt to move her over into her
accustomed place.
SShe growled again!
.Now, normally Smudgie
doesn't show any belligerency in
the bed." She just moves 'to
another spot and goes'back to
sleep. Not this time. She growled
again with a deep [as deep as she
could manage] ominous growl.

THIS TIME, I LET, her alone
and decided if she wanted that
space so badly, she could have
it.
But, I couldn't sleep, with
that pressure being applied to.
the normal location of my feet.


Besides that, her body was warm
and my feet weie too warm' for
comfort.
So, I got up again, only to be
greeted by Smudgie, comfort-
ably, sound asleep in a location
normally occupied by my feet. '
I got up and got a drink of
water and.went to the bathroom
and wandered about the house
for awhile.
Finally, I went back'to bed,
but Smudgie was still lying in
the same, place. She, was
sprawled out in the space nor-
mally occupied by my feet.
I thought I would try to move
her once more. but got met with a
growl, again.,
-This was beginning to be too
much! Smudgie knew she was in
the .space my feet usually occu-
pied.
Was she attempting to take
over new territory?
Did she find the new spot a
little more comfortable than her
former spot?


She couldn't usurp my feet
from their accustomed place that
easily!

SO' I DECIDED to go through
the routine again. Maybe
Smudgie would 'become tired of
the pressure being brought to
bear, and move with a little per-
sistence on my part.
I brought together all my
resources and with a mighty
heave, scooted her out of the
fought-over space..,
She SNAPPED at me!
Little old even-tempered
Smudgie actually snapped at met
, Every time I sit down to eat a
meal, Smuidgie gets her part. She
doesn't even need her feeding
dish, because she gets; fed every
morsel directly out of my hand, I
guess if I could hold water in my
hand, she would drink from it
and not her water bowl.
If I sit down and make a lap,
she gets in it immediately. If I
start to go somewhere, she beats


me to'the door. .
We have a relationship lilil
this and she isn't even my dof'
She definitely belongs to9
Frenchie.

AND, THAT DOG snapped
at my feet trying to reclaim they
territory.
I'll get even with her, though.
I'll just not give her anymore
apple to eat.
From now on, my complete
sandwich is mine to eat. I'm even
thinking of not giving her my
cereal bowl to lick the milk frori
the bottom. I'll really get ev&i
with her, though, by cutting dff
the ice cream every evening.
There's many ways I can get evet1
and teach her not to' growl or
snap at my feet.
I might' even push' her out of
the bed and not allow her to
sleep there. There's a multitude
of ways to teach her she isn't to
grumble at the hand that feeds
her! I'

McGuffin Seeks First Responder


Units To Improve Emergency Aid


Gulf County Emergency
Medical Services Director Shane
McGuffin gave an overview of the
ambulance operations to mem-
bers of the Port St. Joe Rotary
Club last week. During that pro-
gram, he outlined efforts by the
squad to have specially equipped


"first responder groups" strategi-
cally placed throughout the coun-
ty.
McGuffln explained that the
intent of the first responder units
was simply to improve emergency
medical services and maximize


the patients' care by getting aid to
victims as soon as possible..
He displayed a suitcase con-
taining a portable defibrillator,
oxygen, and several other medical
items that will be necessary as the
main first response medical tools.

Prime areas, of concern in the

Scouting Gets Another Boost
The Port St. Joe Rotary Club has seen an idea go a long way
toward materializing over the past several months as the J. T.
Simpson Scout Hut has begun to take shape.
Members of the Constitution Council of the Port St.
doe/Mexico Beach Knights of Columbus helped the cause last
Thursday when Bill Colbert (Grand Knight) presented the club
with a $1,500 check. Colbert (right) presented the check to club
president, Doug Kent (left), in the photo above.
The Scout Hut project has turned into a community-wide
project as various clubs, individuals, businesses, and groups
have participated through contributions of labor, love, and gifts.
Thus fax, approximately $27,000 has been expended to get the
building dried in, but there is still a lot of work left to be done
W* before it can be utilized.

pounds of marijuana was seized
from the home.
Weakly made $20,000 bond
in Gulf County.; He was then
taken to Bay County where addi-
tional charges were filed, and he
was placed in the Bay County
Jail.
Weakly was charged with traf-
ficking marijuana and the 'sale
and delivery of marijuana in Gulf
County. He was also charged with


, constitutional and order FWC to
stop actions to the contrary.
Earlier court rulings have
supported the constitutionality of
the tarps, but FWC has decided
not to renew the tarp bait fishing
program primarily based on their
new declaration that tarp nets are
prohibited by Article 10, Section
16 of the Florida Constitution.
This move has once again
forced fishermen, who are already
reeling from the effects of the net
limitation amendment, to take the
matter back to court at their
expense.
The FWC rules predecessor
(Dppartment of Environmental
Protection and the Florida Marine
Patrol) have stipulated through a
1998 court case with Walker and
Melvin that the use of tarp gear in
the harvest of bait fish was per-
missible. That order was unani-
mously affirmed on appeal (First

could close the gap between the
time a medical incident occurs

Everyone loves des- 4W
sert. But for many
busy families,a
homemade dessert p e i
is a rare indulgence
-until you discov-
er creative ways to
make baking conve-
nient, like this cake
recipe.
Fudgy Banana Oat
Cake gets its head
start from a pack-
-aged devil's food
cake mix. Mashedb ,
ripe bananas impart
flavor and moistness ..
to the mix, while
spoonfuls of an easy fudge filling bake into luscious chocolate pockets. A
streusel topping that gets its crunch from whole grain oats adds texture and
personality to this rich chocolate cake. Top with whipped cream and sliced
bananas, and watch it disappear!
Heat oven to 3500F. Lightly grease bottom only of 13x9-inch baking pan. For
topping, combine oats and brown sugar. Cut in margarine until mixture is
crumbly; set aside.
For filling, in small saucepan, heat chocolate pieces, sweetened condenselmilk
and margarine over low heat until chocolate is melted, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat; set aside.
For cake, in large bowl of electric mixer, combine cake mix, banana, oil and
eggs. Blend at low speed until dry ingredients are moistened. Beat at medium
speed 2 minutes. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan. Drop filling by
teaspoonfuls evenly over batter. Sprinkle with reserved oat mixture. Bake 40 to
45 minutes or until cake pulls away from sides of pan and topping is golden
brown. Cool cake in pan on wire rack. Serve with sweetened whipped cream and
banana slices, if desired. 15 Servings

(NAPSI-Are you hungry an
hour after eating lunch? Will you
snack before your next meal? Not
likely, if you ate fish. It turns out
that fish is ranked number two
when it comes to satisfying
hunger, second to potatoes. Plus,'
it's a deliciously "smart" choice.
Fish Is high in protein and low In
saturated fat and calories, making
It a nutritious source of energy-
satisfying and healthy-it's a com-
bination that can't be beat
According to the "Satiety
Index," a hunger study developed
in 1996 by Dr. Susanne Holt, fish.
Is an excellent choice for control-
ling hunger. Using the same
study, the May 1996 issue of the
University of California-Berkeley
Wellness Letter stated, "Fish is
more satisfying, per calorie, than
lean meat or beef." .
Did you know that you can
enjoy the benefits of fresh fish
year-round? For example, Florida
has numerous species available
year round and many seasonal
varieties. And don't forget seafood
favorites such as scallops, clams
and blue crab.
So, try the hunger test for
yourself. Experiment with these
'recipes arid.see how you feel after
your meal.i
Chances are you'll be satisfied
and energized

Deliver Dog Bite Prevention Tips

Children Estimated to Suffer 900 Times as Many Dog Bites as Letter Carriers


If you think 2,725 letter carri-
ers bitten by dogs last year is
appalling, what about the more
than two million children who
represent the majority of dog bite
victims?
If you're a dog owner or one of
the 4.7 million Americans who fell
victim to dog attacks last year, the
U. S. Postal Service (USPS) and
the Humane Society of the United
States (HSUS) have good news for
you: Dog bites are a nationwide
problem we all can solve through
responsible pet ownership.-
The USPS and HSUS, have
joined together to promote dog
bite prevention. "This 'clearly is a
nationwide problem and not just a
postal issue," said Dennis
Geoghagen, "and our partnership
with the Humane Society of the
United' States helps us convey this
message."
The Victims
The Humane Society reports
that small children, the elderly,
and letter carriers, in that order,
are the most frequent victims.
"Dog attacks are the most
commonly' reported childhood
public health problem in the
United States. The HSUS reports
that the number of dog attacks
exceeds the reported instances of
measles, whooping cough. and
mumps, combined. Dog bite vic-
tims account for up to five percent
of emergency room visits.,
Many of the bites reported by
2,725 letter carriers last year
came from dogs that, according to
their owners. "wouldn't hurt a

of the County Implementing a half-cent local
government Infrastructure sales tax to pur-
chase trucks and equipment for the fire
departments. Following discussion regarding
the Items which the tax can be used to pur-
chase, members of the Board encouraged the
fire department volunteers to talk to and
educate the public, as it must be placed on
the referendum. Upon Inquiry, Attorney
McFarland reported that the tax could not be
used to lower the ad valorem base for fire
taxes. Commissioner Yeager stated that It
could Inadvertently decrease ad valorem
taxes because the Board would not have to
use ad valorem tax funds to assist fire
departments with equipment. as they are
currently doing. Following discussion regard-
ing reduced insurance rates In areas which
have updated fire department,. members of
the Board again encouraged the volunteers
to educate the public regarding this tax.

ATTEST: BENNY C LISTER. CLERK


USPS and HSUS are offering
advice for dog owners on how to
restrain their pets and, for non-
owners, tips on how to avoid dog
bites.
How to Avoid Being Bitten
Don't run past a dog. The
dog's natural instinct is to chase
and catch prey.
/ If a dog threatens you, don't
scream. Avoid eye contact, try to
remain motionless until the dog
leaves. Then back away slowly
until the dog is out of sight.
Don't approach a strange dog,
especially one that's tethered or
confined.
Always let a dog see and sniff
you before you 'pet the animal.
Letter carriers are discour-
aged from petting animals.
How to be a
Responsible Dog Owner'
Obedience training can teach
your dog,proper behavior and help
you control your dog in any situia-
tion.
When your letter carrier
comes to your home, keep your
dog inside, away from the door, in
another room, or on a leash.
Don't let your child take mail
from the letter carrier in the pres-
ence pf your dog. Your dog's
instinct is to protect the family.
Spay or neuter your dog.
Unneutered dogs are more likely
to bite.


HSUS statistics reflect that
dogs who have not been spayed or
neutered are up to three times
more likely to be involved in a bit-
ing incident than are neutered or
spayed dogs.
Dennis Geoghagen said the
Postal Service and, the Humane
Society agree that, in most cases.
dog bites are caused more often
by irresponsible dog owners than
by bad dogs. Dogs that haven I
been properly socialized, receive
little attention or handling, or are
left tied up for long periods of
time, frequently turn into biters.

To the citizens of Port St. Joe,

I would like to say Thank You to
the people that made an effort to .
vote, and a special Thanks to the 1
voters that supported me. I urge the
citizens of Port St. Joe to attend the
City Council Meetings on the 1st
and 3rd Tuesday of each month. You
need to know the issues your commissioners support-'
ing first hand, not after you have to read it in the local
paper. I also encourage you to attend the workshops_
Everything your City Council supports affects every-
one, not just a few. Get involved with your city.
Sincerely,

Charles Tharpe

There has never been a generally satisfactory defini-
tion of pain or even a good method to measure it. Some
rare individuals have an inborn immunity to pain which is
called "Congenital Analgesia." Others are so sensitive that
they feel pain at the slightest instance. But, pain is your
body's personal alarm system and should not be ignored.
Once your physician has pinpointed the condition
causing the pain symptom, he can act to give you quick.

scription laboratory. We have the modern pain killers and
medications that attack the cause of pain symptoms.

Creamer Among the Nation's Best


PSJ Resident Competed In World
Martial Arts Millennium Games
Written by Kelli Peacock
Keith Creamer recently
returned from Sydney, Australia
where he represented the United
States with the U. S. National
Martial Arts Team at the site of
the 2000 Summer Olympics. The
event was held April 1 and 2.
The awards he brought home
to the states, gold medals in fight-
ing and forms, and a silver medal
in weapons were added to his col-
lection of trophies from around
the Southeast.
A graduate of Altha High
School, Keith is the son of Mary J.
Creamer and the late Robert
Glenn Creamer of Altha. He was
raised by his mother and late
grandfather, Bill Bowden. .After
receiving the Eagle Scout Award
of the Boy Scouts of America, and
his diploma, he headed for Port
St. Joe and began working with
the St. Joe Paper mill, where his
employment lasted 21 years.
To help with the stress of the
loss of his job after the mill
closed, and a new college career
at Gulf Coast Community College
in electronics and computers,
Creamer joined the American
"Freestyle" Karate School in
Panama City. His prior years as
an athlete paid off as he was soon

and took care of a few things
before leaving. When she was
ready to leave. Mrs. Stansel
retrieved the purse from the back
of the car and drove to 'town.
There was only pne thing

Interior Renovations of Wewa


Community Center Completed


The original building used to
house ; the Wewahitchka
Community Center was con-
structed in the 1950's. The Gulf
County Senior Citizens, in concert
with the Gulf County Commis-
sioners, the City Commissioners
of Wewahitchka, and the generos-
ity and hard work of private citi-
zens, announce the interior
renovations have been completed.
Wild Billders, Inc., owned by
Bill Quaranta, started work on the
project in January. Scott Godwin
rewired the entire building,.
replaced all the florescent lights,
arid added some electric outlets.
Dusty Stitt donated his talents to
help restore the original floors'
hardwood, surface with three
coats of varnish: The kitchen
walls were done in sheetrock and
painted. St. Joe Natural Gas
Company .put In a, new gas- hot
water heater, and helped with the
moving and re-connection of the
10) commercial oven.
- The Senior Citizens moved
from the old school cafeteria
where they had been for twenty
years. The Gulf County School
poard provided this space and
always maintained the equipment
in an excellent manner. The
Wewahitchka staff, under the
management of F'aye Former,
:tarted serving meals on April
7th, at the new location.
The move was a huge under-
iaking. The Board of Directors
extend their thanks to the follow-
ing agencies and individuals:

and disaster teams if necessary.

windows were donated by Kevin
Campbell in honor of his family.

Rich a chance to ask any ques-
tions. After he answered the
phone, she launched immediately
into her missing money saga. She
told him she didn't know the
denomination of bills, but after he
heard her story, he was convinced
the money was hers. He was right.


After she got her money back,
Mrs. Stansel offered Mr. Rich a
reward of $100,'which he refused.
As John Rich says, "It still
pays to advertise in The Star." His
biggest reward, though, was
knowing that his honesty made
someone else happy.


. ,,
-^.
-".a ^


Meanwhile, unbeknownst to
Mrs. Stansel, John Rich was dri-
ving down the very same road on
the very same day that she lost
the money. A keen observer, Mr.
Rich says he has always been
fond of noticing things on the
road. On this particular day, Mr.
Rich spied a small erivelope laying
in the road, but he didn't; stop
immediately. He watched the
envelope in his rear view mirror to
see what it would do as he
passed. The envelope didn't do
anything. That was his clue.
Mr. Rich turned, his car
around and went to retrieve the
envelope. He knew if the envelope
was empty, it would have blown
away as he passed. True enough.
the envelope was bulging with
bills.
Mr. Rich took the discovered
treasure to the bank whose name
was on the envelope and asked if
they knew of anyone who had
been In recently to cash .a check.
They had no way of knowing that
e check was cashed the day
before and it was cashed for more
money than was in the' envelope.
So, Mr. Rich did the next best
thing; he called The Star to adver-
tise his find.
There was only one thing-
wrong. He called after the classi-
fied deadline. The ad sat for a
week until the next 'classifleds
were printed.
Here's where the story takes
another twist. In the ad, the
money's owner was instructed to
call Mr. Rich and describe the
amount of money lost ($300), the
container (a bank envelope), the
denomination of bills (not even
Mrs. Stansel knew this one), and
the last place where the owner
remembered having ,:t (on the
trunk of her car).,.
A friend of Mrs. Stansel, who
knew the story of the missing,
money, read the classified ad, told
Mrs. Stafisel about it and urged
her to call the listed number.
There was only one thing
wrong. The phone number print-
ed in The Star was incorrect (only
by one digit).
Although she didn't get her
hopes up, Mrs. Stansel was con-
cerned when she got a wrong
number. That's when she called
The Star and was given Mr. Rich's
correct phone number.
When she finally contacted
him, Mrs. Stansel didn't give Mr.

One night I saw an old friend
who was so lit up that I could
read by him.
He was staggering from car to
car, and I asked, "Are you lost?"
"No, preacher, Guido," he
mumbled, "but my car is."
There are many like him who
are lost, and they won't admit it.
If you have wandered away from
the Lord, you're lost.
But you don't have to find
Him. He has come to seek and
to save you.
You're not further than one
step from Him. That one step is
turning around. When you turn
around, you'll find yourself in the
arms. of the seeking Christ who
loves you and longs to save you.
You'll turn to Him, won't you?


Are You Over 50?
This Screening
Could Save Your Life
The American Can cer Society
predicts that there will be about
93,800 new cases of colon cancer
and 36,400 new cases of rectal
cancer in the United States ,.in
2000. Nine out of 10 people'with
these cancers are older than, 50.
Old age, the single most impor-
tant risk factor,, puts tus ,all in
Jeopardy.
What can we do? Beginning at
age ,50, men and women should
have regular screenings that can
find colon and rectal cancers
early. If found early, these cancers
are highly treatable and curable.
(If you have a family history of
colon or rectal cancer, you should
be screened before age 50.)
On January 1, Medicare
began covering colon and rectal
cancer screenings. For beneficia-
ries over age 50, Medicare will pay
for:
A fecal occult blood test (a
test that shows hidden blood in

A flexible sigmoidoscopy
(where the doctor inserts a slen-

A colonoscopy (where the

Preparation Will Help Protect Against Hurricane Losses


Ripping through the Florida
Panhandle in 1995, Hurricane
Opal left an estimated $2 billion
dollars in damages before moving
into other southeastern states.
The uniqueness of that storm
was not the intensity of its winds,
but the enormous surge of water
that swept across the Panhandle's
beaches. A 15-foot storm surge
pummeled the coast from Mexico
Beach to Pensacola Beach,
destroying hundreds of homes
and severely eroding more than
100 miles of white-sand beaches.
Now, with another hurricane
season under way, homeowners
throughout Florida would do well
to remember Opal-and also to
recall the $3 billion in losses
caused mostly by flood waters
from Hurricane Floyd last year in
North Carolina. Both of those
events point up the need for
insurance consumers to under-
stand that a standard home-
owner's policy doesn't cover flood
damage.
If you live in a coastal or
flood-prone area, you can contact
your insurance agent about
obtaining separate flood insur-
ance from the National Flood
Insurance Program. Maps identi-
fying Special Flood Hazard Areas
in your community' can; be
checked at your city hall' or
county courthouse. Keep in mind:
There is a 30-day waiting period
after purchase of flood insurance
before the coverage takes effect.
Windstorm coverage is
included in most standard home-
owner's policies-unless you
reside in a coastal area where
your insurance company can
leave w\vini, and hail coverage to an
industry-run insurance pool
called' 'li e Fidrfda Windstorm
Underwriting Association. Like
federal flood insurance, FWUA
windstorm coverage can be pur-
chased through the agent who
handles your basic homeowner's
policy. The FWUA's coverage area
includes most of Florida's barrier
islands and stretches inland to I-
95 in Miami-Dade, Broward, and
most of Palm Beach counties.


A careful review of your policy
and its "declaration" pages may
raise other important questions to
ask your insurance agent or com-
pany. For example, you should
know whether your policy would
pay "replacement cost," or "actual
cash value," for a covered loss.
The latter takes into account
depreciation, and generally won't
pay enough to replace a destroyed
item at today's prices.
Or, perhaps you recently
remodeled your home or pur-
chased expensive items such as a
new computer or entertainment
system. You might want to
upgrade your policy if it doesn't
cover the current value of your
home and its belongings. But
don't wait until a hurricane
threatens Florida. to consider
making changes In your coverage.
Once a storm watch is issued,
insurance companies will not
accept applications for new or
increased homeowner's, condo-
minium owner's or renter's cover-
age.
Here are some other things to
consider in this new hurricane
season:
Be sure you know what your
deductible is on hurricane
losses. Most policies now have
a hurricane deductible of two
to five percent of a home's
insured value. If your property
is damaged, you'll be responsi-
ble for that portion of the repair,
costs. So, to the extent possi1'
ble, you'll want to select a.
deductible that you can afford
S* Stock up now on flashlights,
'batteries, canned goods, bot-
tled water and other emergency
supplies.
Inventory your household
items, including costs, pur-
chased, dates, and serial num-
bers where applicable. Save
your receipts and photograph
or videotape your possessions.
Keep copies of this information
and your insurance policies
handy in your home, and keep
the originals in a safe deposit
box or with, a friend or relative.
Write down the name, address
and claims-reporting telephone


number of your insurance
company, which may differ
from your agent's contact infor-
rhation. Keep all of this infor-
mation in a safe place, too, and
