S Coach Jones Is


Remembered Sat.


Approximately 200 people
gathered at the "David Jones
Memorial Gymnasium" Saturday
evening to remember former
- coach and friend David W. Jones.
Sr.
During the dedication cere-
monies, sponsored by the
Washington Improvement Group
(WIG), Coach Jones was recog-
nized for being much more than a
very successful basketball coach
at the school from 1954 through
1970. He was described as a man
of character who touched the lives
of every high school student he
taught.

David W. Jones
[Born November 18, 1923
Passed June 2, 1976]
The Washington High School
"Fighting Tigers" competed for
many years under the Florida
Interscholastic Athletic Associa-
tion (FIAA). During Jones' tenure.
the team won four Northern
Division State Championships
(1959, 1961. 1963. and 1968):
four times were state runners-up;
and district champions.
In 1969. the team competed
in the state finals in Jacksonville
after the FILAA merged with the
FHSAA. In 1970, Washington
High School was closed when the

Chapter 119 request was made.
Floyd also pointed out that files
continued to be deleted even after
Florida's Attorney General and
Inspector General offices were
informed about the files being
deleted.
"It was discovered that efforts
had been made to completely wipe
the files from FFWCC hard
drives," Floyd said/
It turns out though, that
while the information can be
removed, the titles and other "fin-
gerprints" could not be removed.
Many of those titles have been
discovered.
All Lot More
Than Just Fish Business
it turns out that a lot more
than just fish business was tak-
ing place on the sites. Fishermen
were particularly looking for what
they feel is a concentrated effort
by some members of the FFWCC
to destroy their industry through
regulations.
The most recent example of
that was the discontinuance of
the pilot bait fishing program.
This program was for the harvest
of bait ish only, and was part of a
special program/study.
Scientific data to date sup-
ported the program, but FFWCC
members voted to not renew the
program when it expired on July
1st.
FFWCC started off saying the
bait fish pilot program was not
constitutional [which was- not
supported in court].
Fishermen responded to the
FFWCC's lack of reasoning by fil-
Ing for.the public information dis-
closuret, see -if some. others
underlying reasons existed.
What was found was that
most of the files that by title might
address some of their concerns
had been illegally deleted from the
hard drives.
Other files found to be deleted
contained numerous pornograph-
ic sites. At least three of the
FFWCC executives-Russell
Nelson. Jorge Laguna, and
William H. Teehan-had a multi-
tude of these sites.

Wewa Looking
At Upgrade For
Water Plant
Wewahitchka city commis-
sioners began to make plans to
refurbish portions of the city's
water plant during their regular
meeting Monday evening.
Commissioners' discussions
centered around securing price
estimates to replace the water
chlorinating unit at the plant. The
board will further discuss those
plans at a future meeting.
The board received one bid for
:several surplus items advertised
for sale. Joble Barfield's bid total-
ing $407.55. bought him a used
surplus cement mixer, bush hog,
Kabota tractor, and an older
model van. The. board accepted
the bid.

. Fishermen Are Taking Action
Ray Pringle, president of the
Florida FIshermen's Federation,
said he was infuriated by the dis-
.covery and plans to begin imme-
diate action against those
Involved in the misuse.
Pringle is in the process of fil-
ing both state and federal com-
plaints against the FFWCC offi-
cials for misuse of funds and the
illegal deletion of files (a criminal
offense). Furthermore. he said he


plans on seeking a full investiga-
tion into the activities.
The fishermen's attorney. Pat'
Floyd, said the representatives
,will be required to answer In writ-
ing under oath several questions
concerning information deleted
from the files. Among the
questions to be answered are-
What was deleted from the hard
drives? i How was It done? .
Who ordered 'the information
deleted? and, Why was it


deleted?
In news reports Tuesday ...
Director Allen Egbert released a
statement saying that fishermen's
claims about wiped computers
drives are "particularly troubling."
That statement from the
FFWCC director was troubling to
fishermen who have reviewed the
affidavit on Egbert's computer
only to find his hard drive was

Gulf County commissioners
Look action Tuesday evening to
remember the late Gulf County'
Judge Robert "Bob" Moore.
Commission Chairman Billy
Traylor suggested to the board
that the new Gulf County admin-
istrative building be named in
memory and honor of Judge
Moore. Board members were
quick to respond in unison to the
idea and agreed that the building
would be named the "Robert M.
Moore Administration Building."
The new building is nearing
completion and 6ne of the func-'
tions included within its design is
for the board meeting room to
serve as a -second .courtroom
when needed. Traylor also
explained that Judge Moore had
been instrumental in helping with
that portion of the administration
building project.
Highway 98 Resolution
Discussion
Commissioner Tommy Knox
proposed that the board pass
another resolution concerning the
stretch of Highway 98, between
Dixie Belle Curve and St. Joe
Beach and rescind the existing
resolution.
Board Attorney Tim
McFarland read the resolution
recommended by Knox. The two
resolutions are very similar,
except the one proposed specifi-
cally addresses leaving the
current Highway 98 intact.
As the St. Joe Company has
begun studies to look at realign-
ing Highway 98 along this stretch
of Highway 98, many local resi-
dents have voiced their desire to
leave the existing roadway as is.
At the same time, most folks
also have discussed a need for a
"back beach road" to help take
traffic from the existing road.
County commissioners
passed a resolution last year to
help ."fast track" a St. Joe study to
look at realignment of the road.
Some have considered that reso-
lution as support by the board for


on Remembers Judge;


publicc Input Discussed


the removal of the beachfront
road.
Board members have
explained during several different
meetings that the resolution does
not state that. Commissioner
John Stanley pointed out that
while the current resolution does
state whether the roadway .will
stay or go the word realignment
does confuse the issue.
Commissioner 'Warren Yeager
asked for an opportunity to review
the new ordinance-which had
only just come before the board-
before Voting on the issue. Yeager
also pointed out the need for an
alternate route,, and that a little
loop would not be the answer to
transportation needs.
The vote for the new resolu-
tion failed to pass by a 2-3 vote,
with Knox and Stanley voting in
favor and Yeager, Traylor, and
Peters opposing the motion. The
matter resurfaced again near the
end of the meeting withno change
in the vote.
The resolution will likely be
reintroduced at a future meeting
after the full board has had time
to review the contents.
Public Inputit
Several members of the pub-
lic addressed the board's change
in policy which puts public com-
ment at the end of the board's
meetings.
Focus of the discussion point-
ed to the public not being able to
discuss issues when the board is
making decisions on them during
the earlier portion of the meeting.
Chairman Traylor encour-
aged the public to come to meet-
ings and participate, but pointed
out that It should be done in an
orderly fashion. He also said the
board would re-discuss issues
with the public during the public
input time.
In Other Business
*Agreed to advertise for public
comment on a lighting ordinance
for Gulf County.
eCommissioner Warren


Yeager advised the board that he
was aware of a party that was
interested in locating at the coun-
ty's industrial park.
eDecided to hire Anthony
Varona as Gulf County's Code
Enforcement Officer.
*Veterans Service Officer Bo
Williams notified the board that
World War II veterans- who were
unable to complete high school
because of service-related activi-
ties can receive a certificate of
completion from the state.
eVictor Ramos addressed an
erosion problem that existed
along Indian Pass. The board
agreed to temporarily halt vehicu-
lar traffic on the beach until the
area renourishes itself.

Editorial Commentary Columns Written by Willie Ramsey, Editor



We've Looked Into Their


Minds and It's Ugly!

I received a copy ofthe affidavit from the computer expert mir-
roring the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FFWCC) computer hard .drives for fishermen under the public
information act.
Fishermen and their attorney, Pat Floyd, were searching for
data on those hard drives that might verify thoughts that at least
some members of the FFWCC are conspiring against commercial
fishermen and their rights to fish.
Come to find out, these hard drives and the human mind have
a lot in common-once information gets in, it's hard to remove. You
might want to forget the information, and in some cases you may
even have forgotten, but it's still up there trapped in those zillions
of brain cells.
Computer hard drives kind'a trap that information, too. In the
case of computers though, you can erase the memory, but "foot-
prints" of the procedure will remain.
What the fishermen's investigation discovered was that infor-
mation was altered, deleted and/or removed after the public infor-
mation request was made (March 2nd). This, of course, is illegal.
Many of these footprints turned out to be dirty little critters
though. Remains of pornographic sites are scattered all over some
of the hard drives.
Russell Nelson, Robert Palmer, Jorge Laguna, William H.
Teehan, and Allen Egbert are among the FFWCC heads whose hard
drives were mirrored. At least three of these directors (Nelson,
Laguna, and Teehan) contained footprints of. this material, accord-
ing to the affidavit report.
I didn't personally count the number of sites that were obvious-
ly pornographic in nature on these records. I do feel safe in saying
well over a hundred sites were visited between the three of them.
This was no faux pas. These sites were intentionally being visit-
ed. Key words like "sex list," "sex swap," "porn track," "nudist,"
"uncensored" "naked" "sex for you" "and "big breasted black
women" leave little, thought in anyone's mind as to what might
- appear on the actual web sites visited and re-visited.
It's perverted enough that these officials are visiting-sites such
as this in the first place. But to think they are doing it on our dime,
while making rules and regulations that fishermen and outdoors
meii of all types have to follow for fear of their wrath, is even more
of a disgrace. .
They have broken the law right in the face of the State Attorney
General's Office-and on top of that embarrassed the entire State of
Florida in the process. No wonder commercial fishermen have found
some of these folks difficult to understand. Most of them-the fish-
ermen, of course-have more class than that.

Coach Jones Is Remembered
Congratulations to the family and friends of David W. Jones, Sr.
Most of the younger folks around town don't even remember
when there were two high schools in Port St. Joe. Mr. Jones was the
head coach for the Washington High School "Fighting Tigers" from
1954 till the school merged with Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High School in
1970.
Mr. Jones was not only a very successful basketball coach, but
was also a man of great character.
His wife received recognition on behalf of him as dedication cer-
emonies were held officially naming the old Washington High School
gymnasium "David Jones Memorial Gymnasium."
S I can remember clearly in 1969 when Port St. Joe High School.
and Washington High School both participated in the FHSAA State
Finals held in Jacksonville. For many of the folks at that tourney, it
was the first time they had ever, seen the "other school" within Port
St. Joe play basketball. '"
That didn't make any difference though, as people from the
community joined together to root each other's respective teams
onward to victory.
Port St. Joe won the state tourney that year and Washington
High finished as runner-up in their class if my memory is correct.
The thing that impressed me most as a high school senior was the,
coming together of the two communities. :
: Under Coach Jones, the Fighting Tigers won four Northern
Division State Championships ('59, '61, '63 and '68). four state run-'
ners-up, and district championships. Obviously his past: players
and friends remember him as much for who he was, as they do for
what he did as a coach.... .


S Hunker Down With Kes by Kesley Colbert



He Wore The Wrong Red Uniform!


Ashley Abrams has been after
me for years to do a story on Pete
Rose. He'd stop by the office,
"Com'on, now, Coach, you've got to
write something about Pete Rose.
He's the greatest baseball player
ever! You know that!"
Ashley and baseball and I go
way back. I had the pleasure of
watching him play a few light years


ago. He could "hit it and go get It."
And no one was going to out work
him on the diamond! Ashley
respected and took the game seri-
ously."He reminded me at times of
Pete Rose .' If he could just
admit that Stan Musial was better
than Pete ....
I'd run into him in Talladega at;
the race, "Coach, I'm still waiting.
You've got to do that story. You
know he was the best. ."
Several years ago he brought
me 'h Cincinnati Reds hat auto-
graphed by Pete Rose, "You've got
to do a story on him. Coach. If he
played for St. Louis you'd be writ-
ing about him every week!"


I'm lining up a putt back in the
summer of 1994. "C-O-A-C-H," I
hear this familiar voice yelling
from two fairways over. "WHEN
ARE YOU GOING TO DO A STORY
ON PETE ROSE!"
1 saw Ashley last night.
"Coach, I've been waiting for years.
You know he was the best. ."
I was a sophomore in high
school when Pete Rose burst onto
.the scene. I took an immediate
liken to him because he played the
game all out on every pitch. He
sprinted on and off the field
between innings. He'd tear down
the first base line on a one hopper
back to the pitcher. He ran as hard

as he could to first base even on a
walk
His first year was Stan
Musial's last. I remember an early
Pete Rose talking of the respect he
had for Stan-and the game.
Somehow as his career unfolded
he was a link back to those glory,
years in the post war forties, and
fifties. He, was definitely a throw-
back.
The game ,was important to
.him.
: He had that short compact
body and that flattop haircut and
those piercing eyes that never
seemed to stop studying the oppo-
sition .... .
He didn't remind you of Ted
Williams or Hank Greenberg or:Joe
DiMagglo. Heck 'no. He looked
almostilike.one of us! You know he
worked for everything he got!
He was a ballplayer's ballplay-
er. Shoot, yodu could see that right
off. He'd be the first guy at the ball
Spark and .the last one to leave.
That .was my role In our little town.
And maybe that's why I1 identified
with him like I did.
'Course, I wasn't 'alone.
Wannabe's all across the land
started practicing head-first slides,
tried their, hand at switch hitting
and fought over who got to wear
number 14.
He was Charlie Hustle from
the very beginning. His joy and
pleasure. of "just being there" and
: "playing the game" was obvious.
And let "me tell you, he had
some ability to go along with his all
out attitude! He was named the
Rookie of the Year for the National
League .in 1963, He led the league
in hitting three times 'and he col-
lected over 200 hits in ten different
seasons. He hit over .300 fifteen
times, lead the league in doubles
five times, won an MVP award ...

: He was named the Player of
the Decade (1970-1979) by The
Sporting News. He was a main cog
in the big Red Machine of the mid
76Os thdt won badk to; back pen-
nants, he played in sixteeA AI-Star
games and, get this, he was named
to start in the All-Star game at a
record five different positions.
You'll have to ask Ashley which
ones they were....
And, oh, by the way, he is also
the all time hit leader (4,256) in
the history of baseball!
If he had only played for the
St. Louis Cardinals .... You just
can't imagine what kind of records
he could have set if we'd had him
on our team! Stan would have
played ten more years ... we cpuld
have sacked those Yankees up!
Pete wasn't perfect. He didn't
have much power., His running
speed was so-so and his throwing
arm.was average, at best. If you
. want to start a, fight, mention that
to Ashley.. ,
His off the field woes are well
documented., Several- people have
asked. me about his exclusion from

We Didn't o Much, But We HadA Good Time Anyway


WE TOOK A 4-day trip
which lasted over the fourth and
was the first one we had taken in
over a year. 'Just got 'back home
in time to write the blurb for this
week..
It wasn't quite a vacation,
you understand. Actually it was:
a "visit" trip to see brother-in-
law and his wife on their 'cattle
spread near Perry, Georgia.
They've been bothered by the
drought, top. The cows can find
; no pasture to graze. They got so
desperate for grazing land, about
two weeks ago, that they waded
across Mossy Creek-the bound--
ary between his and a Mr.
Fitzhand's sod farm-to take
advantage of the lush'green
grass. The crop growers and the
Cattle farmers in central Georgia
have been; having it hard. The
corn farmers have had their
crops stunted so much, they
won't even make seed.
But these two weeks of rain
have done a lot for that situation.

They were all waiting for the
fireworks show to be set off.
Lake Blackshear was a popu-
lar place for all ages and all ages
were there, enjoying themselves.
I hated to miss the July Fourth
celebration which was staged
here. Port St. Joe usually has a
good one every year and with the
pirate ship one of the acts this
year, we know that you folks had
a good time.

WE TOURED A GIANT peach
packing shed Tuesday afternoon.
It wasn't closed down for the hol-
idays, either! They were packing
and selling those peaches like
crazy.
In the front was a huge retail
market which sold everything
from fresh plums to peanuts, to
tomatoes, to peaches of all
grades. When we lived up there,
a peach packing shed was just
that-a shed! The shed covered a
lot of machinery used to grade all
size peaches.

In the old days, kids earned
their summer money, packing
peaches. They only operated for
about a month, but they operat-
ed day and night.
I remember, there was a
packing shed right across the
street from us. It wasn't near as
large as this one. All the peach
growers are:joined together now",
and so pack each other's produc-
tion.
This peach packing opera-
tion was an operation about
twice the size of Gulf County's
industrial building up at
Dalkeith.
: I suspect they packed other
fruits and vegetables, other than
peaches.
They were being trucked in
by pick-up truck loads. The pick-
up trucks pulled trailers which
were the right size to haul five
huge big boxes of peaches. A
trailer was being pulled up and
emptied, one right after the
other. They were approaching the


packing shed in a steady stream.

St. Joseph Bay Scallop Number Remain Low


Bay scallops (Argopecten Irra-
dfans) are an exemplary compo-
-'hent of seagrass beds in Florida
and throughout the eastern and
Gulf coasts of North America.
Bay scallops are considered
to be the "canary in the coal mine"
for the health and status of sea-
grass beds and associated com-
xnunities because they are sensi-
*tive to environmental distur-
bance. Thus, the loss of bay scal-
/ lop populations from many areas
of the Florida Gulf of Mexico coast
during the last 50 years has been
Cause for considerable concern.


Pensacola in the north, but
healthy populations are now
restricted to the area between
Steinhatchee and St. Joseph Bay..
In response to the document-
ed decline in bay scallops in
Florida, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
slon (FWC) in 1994 revised the
scallop harvesting rules to limit
the recreational take and to elim-
inate commercial harvest.
The season was shortened
from nine months (July 1-March
31) to slightly more than two
months (July 1-September 10)


imum of one. pint of shucked
meats.
Additionally, a boat limit was
implemented, allowing up to 10
gallons of unshucked scallops
(1/2 gallon of meats) per boat per
day. Finally, all commercial fish-
ing for bay scallop was outlawed
in Florida waters.
In addition to harvesting
restrictions, the FWC In 1997
implemented a restoration pro-
gram designed to. resurrect col-
lapsed populations in the area
between Tampa Bay and Crystal
River.

SDuren's Piggly Wiggly, St. Joe

Land Transaction Is Complete


"" Duren's Piggly Wiggly and St.
Joe Commercial have jointly
announced the completion of a
land transaction for the develop-
'ment of a new retail center in Port:
St. Joe to be anchored by a new
Piggly Wiggly supermarket. the
center will be owned and operated
by George Duren.
-: Site work is already underway
on the six acre parcel located on
U.S. 98 at First Street near the
Port St. Joe. Marina. The new
Piggly Wiggly will be twice the size
'of the current location on State
Road 71. with approximately
:. 32,000 square feet of space with
provisions for future expansion.
S view this new Piggly Wiggly
as a syinbot of a bright future for
our community," said Duren. "It-
is becoming a reality as the result
*-. of the hard work and cooperation
f. -'ofthe Chamber of Commerce
Director Diane Scholz, the Gulf
-County Economic Development
Commlttee, the elected officials of
L-:.Port St. Joe and Gulf County, and
t -he special Interest shown in Gulf
: .-.County by The St. Joe Company.
..It is an excellent example of how
teamwork and a cooperative spir-
it can accomplish great things."
The store will employ an esti-
mated 55 people, significantly
more than at the current location.
Duren noted that while the super-
market is designed to meet the
-needs of local patrons, additional
space is allocated for the needs of
the region's tourist population.

have been conducted during
spring of 1998, 1999 and 2000.
Considerable baseline
research has been conducted in
preparation for determining the
success of this restoration strate-
gy.
Since 1994. scallop popula-
tions throughout the state have
been monitored for distribution
and abundance. Those data indi-
cate that, despite the consider-
able within-site variation In scal-
lop abundance among years. the
scallop population in the
Homosassa/Crystal River area
has been extremely scarce relative
to Steinhatchee and St. Joseph
Bay (see graph).
However, those data also pro-
vide clear evidence of the resur-r
gene of the Homosassa/Crystal
River scallop population since
1997. ...
Scallops are now almost as
abundant in the Homosassa area .
as they are in the Steinhatchee
area.
Nevertheless, although the
observed recovery of scallop pop-
ulations in .the Homosassa area
suggests that our restoration
efforts have been successful, it
does not allow us to differentiate
between management and plant-
ing as the causative agent.


U: nder the .auspices of Dr.
Terrie Bert at the FWC Marine
Research Institute, we are moni-.
toring the genetic composition of
planted scallops and their poten-
tial offspring.
By identifying DNA strands
that are unique to the planted
scallops at each site, and that
should be identifiable In the off-
spring of those scallops, we can
determine if subsequent genera-
tions of scallops are the result of
our planting efforts.
Because scallops only live one
year, the relative success of a
scallop planting can be genetical-
ly assessed in the population the
- following year.
Preliminary results suggest
some contribution from the plant-
ed scallops, but it appears that
the harvesting restrictions have
helped as well .
We will complete our federal-
ly-funded scallop restoration'pro-
gram in 2001. Our goal is to
establish and maintain healthy
bay scallop populations through-
out the natural range of the ani-
.mal in Florida, and to eventually
reopen the recreational fishery in
the area south of the Suwannee
River.

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE CITIZENS OF GULF COUNTY


Fellow Gulf Countians,

On September 5, 2000, you will cast your vote for the next Clerk of the
Circuit Court for Gulf County. I would like to be that person.

What I have that sets me apart from other candidates is "on the job
experience and knowledge." Since 1978, I have served the people of
Gulf County in county government. First, I served as county commis-
sioner for District 2 from 1978 to 1989. For the past 10 and one half
years, I have served as Chief Deputy Clerk for the Clerk of Circuit
Court. With my 21 years experience, I believe I am the most qualified
candidate to be your next Clerk of the Circuit Court.

"Doug Birmingham is People, not Politics." I am not stepping outside
my career in seeking this office; this is simply the next logical step.

The office of the Clerk is a complex organization that performs a wide
range of record keeping, including information and financial manage-
ment in the judicial system and county government. Therefore, the
Clerk of the Circuit Court must be able to work with both circuit and
County court judges, as well as the Board of County Commissioners.

It takes years of training to acquire proficiency, and I have that train-
ing. I am not seeking a political position or that of a public figurehead.
I will be a working, informed, and productive Clerk of the Circuit Court.
My door always has and always will be open to the citizens of Gulf
County.

*** I would appreciate your vote on September 5th. Exercise your right to VOTE!! ***

+....+++++++++++..+++.. +++..+......+ ++..+.++...++++.+
ANYONE WHO WISHES TO TAKE AN ACTIVE PART IN MY
CAMPAIGN, IS ENCOURAGED AND INVITED TO DO SO.
PLEASE CALL ME-DOUG BIRMINGHAM 639-5323.

No Power Shortages
Anticipated by GHEC
Gulf Coast Electric Cooper-
ative, power supplier for 17,000
members in Bay, Gulf, Calhoun,
Jackson, Walton, and Washington
counties, does, not anticipate
power shortages; While summer
electrical demands have been
high, GCEC has met its electric
load requirements \so far without
complications.
.Annually, GCEC projects
what its electric 'load require-
wments will be based' on historic
data and other information. Using
this as a benchmark, it develops
plans for meeting the load with
generation from its own power
supplier, Alabama Electric
Cooperative (AEC).
Since,' utilities are intercon-
nected to form a large grid. relia-
'bility during excessive heat like
that experienced this summer is
assured. Additionally, GCEC's
power supplier. AEC, and other
utilities have reserves in case gen-
erating plants have operational
problems. These reserves also-
assure reliability for consumers.

PAGE 8A THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, JULY 13, 2000


John T. Simpson, Scoutmaster, Influenced Hundreds of Boys


Members of the Port St. Joe
Rotary Club decided several


From left, Emory Cason,
Simpson


months ago that the new $65,000
community scouting complex


would carry the name of former
Troop #47 Scoutmaster John T.
Simpson upon its completion.
Local businessman and for-
mer scout under Mr. Simpson,
George Duren, gave Rotarians a
program recently telling them a
little more about who J. T.
Simpson was.
Mr. Simpson served as scout-
master for Boy Scout Troop #47
from 1946 until 1967. Standing at
5'9", stocky built, and a low..
gravely voice, he had searching
eyes, a quick unassuming smile.,
was always on the alert for some-
thing humorous: but, most of all
he had a caring heart, Duren
said, remembering his scou t
leader.
He spoke -about the special
knack Mr. Simpson had for mak-
ring every boy feel included. He
.estimated that as many as 500 to
600 boys went through the scout-
irig program under the scoutmas-
ter, and every one of them was
special to Mr. Simpson.
"From the smartest, less coor-
,dinated, socially challenged type
of boy, to the regular old dirt road
sport type of boy. John Simpson
made SURE that all boys that
came to his scout trobp felt wel-
come and were made to feel a part


for the week-long trip to White
Sands. The scouts worked on
merit badges, camped, swam,
took care of camping chores, and,
of course, carried all the new
scouts snipe hunting.
The circus was another. big
event that was used to raise
money for scouting activities. The
annual event started in the early
50's. Preparation began about
three months prior to the event.
The three ring circus was held
at the high school baseball stadi-
um complete with "live" monkeys,
cardboard circus animals with
scout inserts, clowns, and much,
much more. A downtown parade
kicked off the evening as card-
board animals (elephants,
giraffes, etc.) were ushered
through town on small trailers.
The "live" (dressed up scouts)
monkeys and tigers provided a
special treat.
Also there were numerous
clowns, a unicycle rider, and
clowns on stilts.
Some acts during the circus
were the high dive which ended
with a half buried scout who had
missed the bucket of water and
"The Operation" which should
have, been titled "Look What I
Found."

SENIOR CITIZENS'

SERVICES IN GULF COUNTY
"We must provide the community support services which enable .
our senior citizens to maintain their independence and dignity."


O0 ne in four residents of Gulf
County is over sixty years old.
As more people find the advan-
tages of living here. we will see an
increase of folks from other areas
that establish second homes or
retirement residences, far from
their families and communities.
S south Florida has many exam-
ples of predominantly seniors'
communities, often with minimum
age restrictions. Gulf County may-
see this type of community devel-
oped. and with it an expectation of
home-based support services to
allow, people to continue to li.e
independently.
Glf County Senior Citizens
Association is an asset to our
community for the assistance and
support it provides to seniors.
Their programs include home and'
congregate meals, transportation,
personal care, and many other
important functions that extend
the independence of people in their
own home
]Budgets for senior services in
Gulf County are a combination
of. State, Federal, :and County
funds, totaling only 8325,000


annually to serve over 600 people
with a staff of just six people,, and
a lot of volunteers. Almost 85% of
the funds received go directly into'
services, an amazing statistic com-
'pared to most social or charitable
agencies. :
Gulf County has an obligation to
our senior citizens that find them-
selves in positions of need without
the abilities to continue their inde-
pendence. This year our County
will provide just 822,750, or less.
than 7% of the modest budget
needed to help our senior citizens.
.Today, poverty Impacts 1.000-
Sfamilies In Gul, County. One In,
four families are comprised of a
.single Individual. We are certain to
experience a disproportionate
growth in older people as the
impact of retirement-oriented
development hits Gulf County. We
have amoral responsibility to take
care of our older citizens who find
themselves alone and in need.
A s your.County Commissioner,
will work to develop the fund-
ing' necessary to provide for the
needs our senior citizens, and
maintain their independence.,

II as a sergeant and was a chemi-
cal warfare specialist. He moved
to Port St. Joe just after the war
and went to work at the post
office.
After 23 years in scouting, he,
was awarded the Silver Beaver
Award, the highest achievement
award a scoutmaster can attain.
After Duren described his com-
mitment to the scouting program,:l,
it was understood why he
received the honor.
Every year; Mr. Simpson
would save and plan for his vaca-
Lion time around scouting activi-
ties. Annual week-long trips, to
White Sands 'Creek near
Marianna, the yearly Boy Scout
Circus and Parade, and national
and regional jamborees gave thie
term "scoutnmaster" a whole new
definition.
SDuren said Simpson and his
helper, Emory Cason, would load
up as many as 50 young scouts

some of that special blend circus

trainers, clown car, cowboys and

the evening.

The Census 2000 is now
entering its final stage, Florida's
Phase III Effort. As you know, the
Census effort has consisted of two
'phases. Phase I and II. Phase I,
the mail-back phase where
Census packets were mailed or
delivered to residents for comple-
tion and return. Phase II, the non-
response follow-up aspect, which
involve an extensive effort to con-
tact residents who did not receive
their packet, or who were not con-
tacted.
As we enter Phase III of the
Census 2000, there are concerns
involving residents who have not
4een contacted or never received a
form in the mail. The non-

N OW See The Star On Line at
www.StarFL.com

response follow-up, or door-to-
door canvassing, will end within
the next week.
The Census Bureau is accel-
erating the dates of its Coverage
Improvement Phase, by three
weeks from July 27 to July 7. Our
opportunity to make this Census
2000 a success for Gulf County is
approaching an end.
Due to this recent change in
the Census Bureau's schedule,
the Sunshine Count 2000 is step-
ping up its efforts. As a result, if
you did not receive a Census form
or enumerator's visit, a toll-free
number is provided from the
Census Bureau for your assis-
tance (800-465-3013),
If you have any other addi-
tional questions you may contact
Marshall Nelson at 229-9111.
Remember with your cooperation
and participation your community
ma receive thousands and thou-
sands dollars. '

Sluggers Did Well
Dear Editor
Recently on lthe Let's Talk
Show with the St. Joe Sluggers,
one of the players was asked how
the, team did the first year
together (1998). I am sure she was
nervous but she replied "we were
coached by Marian Parker, we had
a long season and w* did not do
very well."
They were coached by Marian
and Daryl Parker. This was their
first year playing fast-pitch soft-
ball together. The team started off
slow but improved enough to go to
the NaUonals in Roswell. Georgia.
SSt. Joe Sluggers placed sec-
ond in a Panama City
Tournament .. second in
Tallahassee, third ip Panama Ci.ty,
Beach. second In the Eastside All-
Star Tournament in Callaway.
The sluggers were one run away
from placing second in the State
Tournament In Tallahassee. This
third place won them a spot in the
nationals where they won only
one game. I feel this was a great
accomplishment for the girls and
the coaches. On their return to
the second tournament in
Tallahassee, the officials said the
Sluggers were the most improved
team around.
It was a long season, and the
girls worked hard. The results
were rewarding.

all of the time it is immediately on hand. We try to
maintain the most complete stock of medicines possi-

basis as soon as they are released for public use.
But, having it is just the start. We make it a

The major cause of periodon-
tal disease (an advanced form of
gum inflammation) is dental
plaque. Plaque is a collection of
bacteria that grows on food parti-
cles, tissue cells, and saliva that
clings to the surface of teeth.
When plaque is allowed to.build
up, the gums become infected
and inflamed. Slowly, the irritated
gums pull away from the tooth
and form pockets. These peri-
odontal pockets trap more

plaque, causing more tissue to
become diseased. If this process
continues, even the bone around
the tooth root deteriorates, which
results in loosening and prema-
ture loss of teeth or widespread,
infection,
If plaque isn't removed regu-
larly, it can harden to form tartar,
the calcified plaque that dentists
call "calculus." Tartar is a barna-
cle-like, yellowish deposit that
can only be scaled from teeth
and from under gums by profes-
sional cleaning. Tartar itself can
speed up the progress of peri-
odontal disease which is the
leading cause of tooth loss in
adults.

ity. Schools are evaluated primar-
ily on the basis of how students

ber of innovative strategies were

strengths and areas where indi-
vidual students needed additional
practice. Hands-on activities with
manipulatives were used to pre-


pare students for the FCAT math-
ematics assessment.
Similar strategies were incor-
porated into all curriculum areas
with administrators as well as
teachers taking active roles in
preparing students. Additional
preparation materials were pur-
'chased and utilized. Parents were
informed of the importance of the
assessment process and were
encouraged to utilize internet and
other available resources.

5. Enjoy your children's indi-
vidual talents. ,Show that, you
think their projects ,are 'special by
proudly displaying them in your
home-and office. Remember, your
supportive comments and enthu-
siasm will fuel their efforts and
boost their confidence.
6.' Start a scrapbook with
photos of finished projects (or the
projects themselves if they fit in
scrapbook format). It may not be
; possible to display every artistic
masterpiece. But you can keep a
scrapbook of completed, projects
for kids and visitors to behold.
SYou'll be surprised how much
enjoyment others will receive by
thumbing through the scrapbook
and how many ideas for. addi-
tional projects it generates.
"We know that children's par-
ticipation in art :activities, helps
them reach their full potential,"
says Stacey Lamb, Hallmark
greeting card senior designer.
"Parents and other: adults are
encouraged to help celebrate the
creative kids in their lives.
