Appointment of Judge Underway


Gov. Jeb Bush to Make Decision After Judicial Nominating Commission Recommendations


The process of appointment of
a temporary Gulf County Judge
should be getting under way very
soon.
According to the Constitution
of the State of Florida, Governor
Jeb Bush will make the appoint-
ment after members of the
Judicial Nominating Commission
make nominations to fill the
vacant post.
The.constitution is very spe-
cific about the guidelines for fill-
ing vacancies on both circuit and
county courts, wherein the judges
are elected by a majority vote of
the electors. The selection would
be made from a list of not fewer
than three nor more than six per-
sons nominated by the nominat-
ing commission.
Terms for.county court judges
are six years. At the time of Gulf
County Judge Robert M. "Bob"
Moore's'tragic death, he was serv-
ing in the second year of his unex-
. pired term.
When the appointment is
made, the "appointed term will
expire in January 2002, after the
2001 General Election is held.
The new six year term will begin
at the end of this appointed term.


The nomination process is
supposed to take place within 30
days from the occurrence of the
vacancy, unless the time period is
extended by the governor-for a
time period not to exceed 30 days.
The governor shall make the
appointment within six days after
the nominations have been certi-
fied to the governor.
Panama City attorney Jay
Manuel is a member of the
Judicial Nominating Commission.
During a telephone interview with
him Tuesday. he said the vacancy
will be advertised in the Florida
Bar News as soon as possible.
Qualified attorneys from Gulf
County can apply for considera-
tion for the appointment with the
commission. The nominating
commission will then review
.resumes and Interview the appli-
cants before forwarding the
names to the governor.
Attorney Manuel said he
, expects a 30-day extension to be
requested since the Judicial
: Nominating Commission is In a
transition period as new members
of the nine-member commission
are beginning to take over their
duties.
He also pointed out that the


governor has requested the maxl-
mum of sLx persons be nominated
by the committee. No official


response has been directed back'
to the governor from the commit-
tee yet, but Manuel noted that


State Park Blaze



Burns 650 Acres

C.Cawnd- After.Char -jgge rJ

Section of St. Joseph State Park '


According to Park Manager
Ann Harvey, a forest fire at the tip
of St. Joseph Peninsula was con-
tained as of Monday morning.
Approximately 650 acres have
been involved in the blaze Wvhich
extends across an area from the
tip of the peninsula back toward
the main park area 2 1/4 miles.
A black line (back burn area)
was established to build a buffer ,
between the rest of the park's
acreage and the fire. As of'
Monday, the fire had burned for
nine days after being started by
lightning on Saturday. July 8th.
Harvey said It's unlikely that
the blaze will expand beyond the
current 650 acre area. She did
note that pockets of unburned
areas within the acreage could
continue to burn over the next
few days.
Park rangers will continue to
keep a watchful eye on the fire.
Harvey said no additional crews
had ,been used to counter the
blaze, but state forestry office ls
did review the site last week.
Much of the area that has
been impacted by the fire was
involved in an approximately 400
acre blaze 12 years ago.
Continuing drought ,conditions
have added to the difficulties of
containing the fire line.
Other Fires In Area
At least two other fires have
burned acreage in Gulf County
over the past several days also.

Citizens Beware

of Phone Solicitors
In the last few weeks many
Gulf County Citizens .have
received misleading phone calls
requesting donations on behalf of
local. Gulf County fire depart-
ments and EMS. These solicitors
are actually telemarketers hired
to raise funds for the Florida
Professional Fire Fighters in West
Palm Beach.
The telemarketers have
grossly -misrepresented them-
selves as local Gulf County fire
fighters and EMS. Please do not
send money as these donations do
not go to your local agencies. Gulf
County fire departments and EMS
do not solicit funds over the
phone. If you have any questions
contact your local Gulf County
Fire Department or EMS at (850)
229-8002.

Get Ready


to VVote!

Gulf County Supervisor of
Elections Cora Sue Robinson'
released several matters of infor-
mation important to voters,
preparing to participate in this
year's election process.
Registration requirements,
election dates. and the availability
of absentee ballots are just a few
of the questions that come to the
forefront as first primary voting
dates approach o,n September
5th.
To vote in an- election, you
must be registered In the county
in which you live by the book clos-
ing date. which Is normally 29
days before an election. The
books remain closed until after
the election. For the first primary
to be held on September 5th, reg-.
istration books will close on
August 7th.
Youl may apply for voter regis-
tration by submitting a Florida
Voter Registration Application
Form to the local Supervisor of
Elections. The forms are available
at the elections office, libraries,
City Hall, government offices,.and
the Senior Citizens Center.
To vote in a Democratic or
Republican Primary Election, you
must be a registered member of
that party. However, a recently
approved revision to the Florida
Constitution states in part that if
all candidates for an office have
the same party affiliation and the
winner will have no opposition in
the general election, all qualified
voters, regardless of party affilia-
tion, may vote in the, primary elec-

Port St. Joe city commission-
ers decided it was time to pursue
a lease agreement with the
Washington Improvement Group
(WIG) more aggressively after
receiving contact from them late
last week.
WIG is currently housed in a
city building at the old
Washington High School complex.
The main thrust of the lease
.agreement has been for WIG to
take over the. David Jones

Grant To Help
Highland View
Gulf county was recently
informed by the Florida Depart-
ment of Community of Affairs that
the county is eligible to receive
funds from the 1998 Community
Development Block Grant (CDBG)
Disaster Recovery category for
damage suffered during Hurri-
cane Earl. Gulf county is eligible
to, receive disaster recovery funds
in, the amount of $245,000, which
the county intends to use to
improve water drainage in the
Highland View community.
A requirement of this grant is
that 50 percent or more of the
project beneficiaries must be per-
sons of low and moderate income.
Beginning on Saturday, July 29,
and continuing on each Saturday
over the next several weeks, staff
from the Apalachee Regional Plan-
ning Council will be conducting
door-to-door surveys throughout
the Highland View Community to
gather the information necessary
to apply for the recovery funds.
The focus of the short survey will
be to gather information describ-
ing household size and income.
Questions regarding the water
drainage improvements or the,
survey should be directed to Don
Butler, Chief .Administrator, at
229-6111.


lease agreement with the city.
This effort has been ongoing
for the. past several years. During
the process, and through a joint
effort of the city, WIG,; Gulf
.County, contributions, and grant
dollars, the building has been
mostly refurbished and airi condi-
tioned.
In, a letter addressed to the
city (July 13), Marsha Harpool;
WIG Executive Director, advised
the city of several community
organizations which conduct pro-
grams and activities that benefit
the North Port, St. Joe community,
would be considered WIG fune-
tions. This designation would


smaller counties such as Gulf
mnay not have that many attor-
neys apply for the position.


Children of former PACE
Local 379 papermakers' union-
members will now be eligible to
receive scholarships from Gulf
Coast Comniiu'nity College, thanks
to a gift.,':from the union and
matching,' endowment by the
state.
Knowing what the constitu-
tion says about assets, union
president John Reeves sought
and obtained permission from the
PACE International president.
Boyd Young, to sell the old PACE
building and use the proceeds to
. endow scholarships.
Money from the selling of the
building and property totalling
$50,000 was presented by Reeves
at the monthly meeting of the
GCCC District Board of Trustees.
The funds will be matched by the
state, resulting in a SI100.000
endowment.
Traditionally. when a union
goes defunct, all assets of the
local return to the union head-
quarters. Reeves reports that this
is the first Lime in international
history that permission of this
type was granted.
Within a few weeks, all former
union members of 379 will receive
Information on the scholarship
and how their children can obtain
these funds.

whether the city had. agreed to
support the building's use in this
manner.

Editorial Commentary Columns Written by Willie Ramsey, Editor



A Road Runs Through It

Among the most beautiful drives in the State of Florida has to
be along some of the roadways adjacent to the beaches of our area.
We've been blessed with, an unobstructed view of both St.
Joseph Bay and the Gulf, of Mexico. Most of us, including myself,
have also felt a little disgust as segmerits of that view have deterio-
rated throughout the years as new construction has blocked that
line of sight.
Equally as Important, public access to our beaches has not been
a problem over the years. even though in some areas it's a little dif-
ficult to get to the beach. Cooperation from property owners, desig-
nated public beach access, along with parks, walkovers, and land
acquisition by local governments have kept our beaches relatively
open to the public.
Sometimes though, we take other folks' generosity for granted-
maybe event to the extent of thinking what's theirs is ours. I've seen
some friends ready to fight because property they have used all of
their life was developed and now they can't use it.
Yes, I'm headed toward the 800 pound gorilla. I'm just going
around my elbow to get there.
Much of the remaining pristine, unobstructed, and open for
public use beach that remains around our area is owned by the St.
Joe Company.
It is making plans to begin developing some of those beachfront
properties. Three areas of local concern are Dixie Belle Curve, an
area between Dixie Belle Curve to St. Joe Beach. and property
between Mexico Beach and Tyndall Air Force Base.
The project which has raised the most concern is the stretch
between Dixie Belle Curve and St. Joe Beach.
Why??? Because a road runs through it. Highway 98 has been
the theater for us to see some breathtaking views for as long as I can
remember. St. Joseph Bay has been the canvas for that view as sun-
sets, clouds, the water of St. Joseph Bay, beautiful white sands, and
sea oats with dunes have etched eternal memories within our
minds.
Development of the St. Joe Beach property is going to bring
major changes to the area. What's going to happen to Highway 98
in that process is certainly a major question: one that has raised
furor during more than one conversation about the road's fate.
I'm not really sure that the fate of Highway 98 as we know it is
the most important question that needs to be worked out.
St. Joe officials have made it plain that they want to work hand
in hand with the community during the development of their prop-
erties. They have made strong statements concerning continued
public access guarantees and. in fact. Improvements beyond cur-
rently available access areas.
The company has also committed to low density development
focused around nature-based activities that will enhance and main-
tain the natural amenities that currently exist.
This all sounds pretty good. but we certainly need to carry these
promises one step further and see these commitments in plans and
In writings reflecting the company's.intentions... ........ -..--
Development is going to come-we are one of Florida's last fron-
tiers. We can only hope that St. Joe Vice President Chris Corr was
on target when he said being the last frontier is best because we
. have learned from the mistakes of those who have come before.
1, for one, am committed to doing my part in reminding folks
what they said If things don't go in that promised direction.
A good friend of mine recently said the three keys to getting
along and reaching understanding were to communicate-commu-
nicate--communicate! Maybe some good informal public meetings
between local residents and St. Joe Company representatives could
help everyone better understand each other's plight.
I have my opinions just like everyone else in three counties.
Mine are not necessarily any better or worse than anyone else's;
they are just my thoughts. I'm not real -hung up on whether
Highway 98 stays like it is or changes. I just want to see us have
guaranteed access for.freedom to use the beaches.
St. Joe owns the land on both sides of Highway 98. They are a
land company and will develop the property at some point and time
in the future. No question about it. the location of Highway 98 can
and will have an impact on that development. But it won't stop it
though, any more so than if you or I owned the property and were
wishing to develop it.
We've seen a lot of changes over the past few years and we'll
probably see a lot more. Maybe the biggest challenge we will have in
times to come is to maintain a significant voice In shaping those
changes.

Of Jewels And Such ..


Once upon a time a summer
vacation meant a trip to grand-
mother's.
At least, my Mom and .ad
called it a vacation, We didn't know
back then that you could pack up,
and go to'a destination that didn't.
have a relative waiting at the other
end.
You talk about naive!


I saw a picture postcard once
from Cypress Gardens. but that
was fantasy land type stuff to us.
And we had heard of Niagra Falls,
but we- weren't sure It was a real
place. Besides. we didn't go any-
where If you couldn't get there in
one day.
It never even came up to spend
a night in a hotel. That was an
extravagance that was beyond all
comprehension.
And don't get to thinking I had
a deprived childhood. You know
how the first day back to school in
the third grade Miss Belle would
always go around the room asking
each person what they did on their


summer vacation .... In our class
twenty-two students in a row got
up and described a trip to their
granny's house!
I can still remember the com-
mon thread that ran through every
talk. "It was hot in the car. I helped
Grandmother churn butter. I
helped Granddaddy pick green
beans. The. spring %where'
Grandmother kept. the, milk was:
cold I saw a chicken with no head-
run around in the backyard. We
ate it for supper. I climbed into the
hay loft. A cow stepped on my foot.
I threw up in the back seat on the
way home."
I only knew about places


where my friends had grandmoth-
ers.
It didn't take me but about five.
seconds on -our first "vacation" to:
rule out helping anybody churn. 14:
was too slow and too much the;
same for me. Granny would grab'
that handle, go to pumping up anid"
down in perfect rhythm, talkinh
and laughing .... She didn't even-
seem to notice the slowness or the
sameness of the whole process.
If you liked a certain thing to
eat, Granny always Phad it for you..
For me. It was those fried apple
turnovers. I'd eat a bite of a chick-
en leg and one plop of mashed
potatoes to legitimize the meal,.
then I'd reach for those pies. Gran
would be talking and laughing ...
. but she kept count of the number
I was downing .. .it pleased her
to no end as I reached for another
and another and another ....
Granny had everybody's
favorite! .
Pa treated you like an adult as
he showed youihis Kentucky wan-;
derers. And no place inside or out-,
side was off limits. And Pa was the
boss of everyone, so if he said.you
could swing out. the barn window
on the hay lift rope, there wasn't
nothing Mother could say. ,,
Mostly at Granny's, we played
with our ;cousins (who. always
seemed to be there), practiced
"being on our best behavior," ate,
and watched grown-ups talk. ; "
After dinner was a tad slow:
Everyone would gather on the
front porch, reminisce about Jesse
Cole White. Uncle Marvin. onebTf
the Shelton brothers or someone
else we'd never heard of, aNrl
watch the grass grow.
It was the same every' summer:
I reckon we were pretty much
rubes to think we were actually on
a vacation .
I shed the hayseed as tie
years past and I learned of Disney
World. And Opryland U.S.A. And
Busch Gardens. And Branson,
['1issdii-i. 'Ahd"Six lags'"Ai'd' 'te
Highway '101 Alligator Farm. -
I stooddn-iineonce for an hom[
to ride Dumbo, the Flying
Elephant. I've had milk spilled qo
me in three different International
House of Pancakes in two different
time zones. I carried two boys
my back down the Natchez Trapf
nature walk 'cause their "little legs
gave out." I've stood by the tree, p
the Shiloh National. Battlegrouni
Park where Albert Sidney
Johnston breathed his last. I've
skied down beautiful, snow-
capped mountain slopes.. .. ito
Douglas firs, picnic tables, and a
Chevy Blazer. '
I have experienced real hoqi-
days since those ,early years, -pf
"quasi-vacations." .
I even let Cathy talk me into a
cruise back in' 1987. Listen, we gpt
on a boat and drove out of sight-qf
land! I must'a been going for hus-
band of the year. .a I figured that
ought to cover me in the vacation

WE WROTE LAST week.
about a 4-day trip we took. never;
dreaming it would result in such
drastic aftermath. We've taken
'this journey several times before .
and never a kickback. It was one
of the most non-eventful trips we
have ever taken. We could almost
take it blindfold.
But this time our little dog
objected-big time.
We never do take the dog.
She stays boarded out with
Carol. It wasn't as if we left her'
with strangers. Carol likes dogs
and Smudgie likes Carol.' But for
some reason, Smudgie rebelled
this time. She didn't mind the
stay at Carol's house, she just
didn't like us going off and leav-
ing her.
What' if something had hap-
pened? Smudgie would have to
deal with the problem by herself.
We didn't even leave her a
blank' check! Believe me! She let
us know it, too.


ETAOIN SHRDLU.


Written by Wesley Ramsey


SMUDGIE HAS followed us
for every step we have taken in
the house since we have been
back. We can't get out a door to
go to.town. She's right there with'
us.
Even when one of us, got, to
the bathroom, she's right there
with the one going.
Speaking of the bathroom; we
missed her the first day back. We
hunted,.. called and searched for
her to no avail. When we finally
found her, guess where she was?
Lying, hidden behind the
commode in the bathroom! She
had never gotten there before.
She gets onl the 'headrest of


the chairs and couches all the'
time, but never behind the com-
mode in the bathroom.
. We figure it was punishment
of some sort. I can't sit down in a
chair to read the: paperiwithout
her jumping up in my lap.
I'll take other steps for the
care of Smudgie, from now on. I'll
probably wind up taking her with
me.

THAT LITTLE DOG knows
.how to punish us. She'll lie down
on something' smelly and just
wiggle back and forth; especially
if it's' extra rankl
I took her to the poodle parlor


'to be gussied up the day before,
we were to leave. She smelled
extra nice. We made the mistake
of discussing our travel plans in
front of her. The very next time.
we let her out, she found a dead,
toad frog on the drive, and did a,
number on' it. Since we didn't
have time to send her back to the
poodle parlor, I.had to manage to'
bathe her again in the bathtub.
Since she .knows I never,

she figures she got me good .

I'm sorry she doesn't get to go

would stay out of the road, she
could go with me every morning
to get the paper. She formerly did
so, until a car or two had to conre
to a complete stop to avoid hitting
her. Where would we be if slfe

We'd have to get another little

Tom Gallagher, Commissioner
of Education, today announced
that the Florida Department of
Education will offer a waiver of
the 1% fee on federal education
loans. The action will save Florida
student and parent borrowers an
estimated $6 million over the next
year.
"In a time when every dollar
counts for students pursuing
higher education, we are proud to
offer this substantial ,savings to
college students and parents in
Florida," Gallagher said.
Federal law allows financial
institutions to collect up to 1% in
fees as an insurance premium
from each education loan that
they guarantee This fee has been
used in the past to pay lenders for
loan defaults and to support the
;1 guarantor's default prevention
program. Because Florida has
been efficient both in collection
and default prevention of loans,
Working very closely with borrow-
ers throughout the duration' of
their accounts, this waiver will be:
available to all borrowers filing for

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION
DRINKING WATER PUBLIC NOTICE
WHITE CITY WATER SYSTEM
Florida Department of Environmental Pmtection
(DEP) records indicates that the White City Water
System violated the maximum contaminant level for
coliform bacteria during 4he July 2000 compliance
period. .
Drinking water samples collected on July 12 and
July 13, 2000 were determined to be present with
coliform bacteria, however, none of the samples con-
tained fecal coliform. Numerous repeat samples col-
lected on July 14, 2000 indicated that coliform bac-
teria were not present within the distribution
system.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) sets drinking water standards and has deter-
mined that the presence of total coliform Is a possi-
ble health concern. Total coliforms are common in
the environment and are generally not harmful
themselves. The presence of these bacteria, howev-
er, generally is a result of a problem with water
treatment or the pipes, which distribute the water,
and indicates that the water may be contaminated
with organisms that- can cause disease. Disease
symptoms may include diarrhea, cramps, nausea,
and possibly jaundice, and fatigue. These symp-
toms, however, are not Just associated with disease-
causing organisms in drinking water, but also may
be caused by a number of factors other than your
drinking water. EPA has set an enforceable drinking
water standard for total coliforms to reduce the risk
of these adverse health effects. Under this standard.
no more than 5.0 percent of the samples collected
during a month can contain bacteria, except that
systems collecting fewer than 40 samples/month
that have one total coliform-positive sample per
month are not violating this standard. Drinking
water, which meets this standard, is usually not
associated with a health risk from disease-causing
bacteria and should be considered safe. State and
local authorities recommend that consumers take
the following precautions;
1. Contact your local County Health Utilt if you feel
you have any symptoms as stated above that you
feel may have been caused by drinking water from
the water system.
2. Remain attentive to any further notice of public
health advisories over the next ninety days.
3. Any questions or concerns about this nou,::e
should be directed to Ms. Donna Daniels. \varer
System Clerk at 850-229-9005 or Ms. Mary Lou
Parker at the Department of Environmental
Protection, Pensacola. (850) 595-8300, Ext. 1186.
This notice is being distributed in accordance with
Florida Administrative Code Rule 62-560. The notice
was mailed to the water system on July 18, 2000.

Jewel Dykes grows pineapples
in her very own backyard. By sim-
ply planting the tops of the fruits
in potting soil and dirt, Dykes was
able to successfully raise two
healthy, fruitful, pineapple plants.
To the surprise of her friends and
neighbors, one of her plants man-
aged to bear four buds, the other,
three. She attributes their vitality
to their origin: the original fruit
was brought to her by her brother
who lives in Honoulu, Hawaii.

ment Agency will hold its monthly

Many Thanks
The family of Doris Gwaltney
would like to express sincere
appreciation for the many acts of
kindness shown during the lqss of
our loved one.
The friends who called upon
us, brought food, sent cards, or
honored Doris' memory with floral
arrangements have been a bless-
ing to us. Also of great comfort,
was the counsel of Pastor David
Fernandez of Oak Grove
Assembly of God.
We want to especially thank
Dr. Wayne Hendrix, Dr. Matthew
Sweetser, and Dr. Boyer who ren-
dered the best of care throughout
her lengthy illness.
The family also appreciates
the assistance, though brief,
given by the caring staff of
Emerald Coast Hospice.

improvements were reported in
part one of this series. Part two

As the school annual evalua-
tion grade of "C" was received by
Port St. Joe Elementary a close
look at this score.revealed that
gains had been made in all areas.
With us brushing so close to a "B"
we will face the new year with the
determination to continue those
programs and teaching strategies
which have placed our test scores
on a steady incline.
Both our reading and mathe-
matics FCAT scores spiraled
upward this year as our students
had opportunities to utilize the
SRA and Accelerated Reader read-
ing, Saxon phonics, Fast Track,
Saxon mathematics, Lightspan
and the CCC computer instruc-
tional program which have all
been Introduced to Port St. Joe
Elementary in the last two years.
The creative efforts of the staff in
utilizing these programs and pro-
viding renewed instructional
strategies for students enhanced
the programs and accounted for
our gains.
Our FCAT Writing scores
remained the same for the 1999-
2000 school year: however, we
were delighted to see three stu-
dents score a 5.0 or above com-
pared to only one student achiev-
ing this score last year.

Improvement
While the staff took time to
bask in the accomplishments 'of
our students this celebration has
quickly turned to a "what can we
do to make things better" attitude.
,With thinking such as this preva-
lent among the staff at Port St.

that we will continue to see. our

Wewahitchka Junior/Senior

with the receipt of this year's

of the test showed significant
improvement over last year's
FCAT scores, while reading and
mathematics were down from last

H3I BOYD PICKETT


for Gulf County


TAX COLLECTOR


Gulf County is changing and it is up to the voters
to determine the direction in which we are
headed.

Dear Fellow Citizens of Gulf County,
The face of Gulf County is changing and while there are many improvements
being made there are many improvements still needed. Gulf County's Tax Base
has increased from $14 million in 1995 to $17 million in 1999 and these figures;
are continuing to increase at lightning pace. These dollars support Gulf County.
Being able to enforce Florida's tax rules and regulations will ensure that Gulf
.County is headed in the right direction. The job of Tax Collector encompasses.
many duties. These include all collections of all ad valorem and non-ad v'alorem-.
taxes, and the distribution of the monies to each of the taxing authorities. This
means that millions of dollars are collected, recorded and redistributed each'.
month. It is a huge responsibility and requires leadership, nianagemnent, and bud-g
getary skills. I have these skills and a proven strong work ethic that will ensure
you that I will be innovatitie and willing to achieve the high standard of excel-i
lence. I will bring all of the valuable assets I have learned in the private sector to'
work hard for Gulf County as a public servant.
I am asking you to take time and evaluate each of the candidates, examine ourf.
credentials, then on September 5th vote for the most qualified candidate. I am|
confident that I am that person. I
I have many ideas that I am excited about, and look forward to the opportunity!
to discuss them with each of you. If you have. any questions, I encourage you to'
call me at 227-7535 or email at pics@digitalexp.com


Sincerely,


Boyd Pickett

little above in math. In a final
analysis, both schools received a
"C'" rating from the state (The
junior high was a "B" last year
while the high school was a "C").
Based on last year's short-
comings, WHS made attendance
and higher writing scores as its
focal points for school improve-
'ment. The emphasis paid off as
perfect attendance was recorded
during test-taking time and a gain
of up to .5 on the writing tests was
Achieved. We had higher individ-
Sual scores on the writing portion
of the test than ever before. Seven
of our students were cited by the
state for special recognition and
High accomplishment on the
FCATs. Congratulations to these
students and all of our students
and lacul for a great effort. With
a different emphasis next year, we
will see all of our scores move up
again!

Lett. To Editor
Dear Editor,
The kids of our community
and their parents are in need of
your help. As most in the commu-
nity know Dupont Foundation
and some local donations have
always funded our program.
Unfortunately, we will not be
receiving 'our grant any longer.'
Our program operates on a bud-
get of approximately $20,000 per
year. We charge a small fee for
those that can pay, but most can-
not.
We serve a lot of single parent
homes and if it weren't for our
program, these kids would be'
running the streets.,We tutor chil-.
dren in the fall and walk over and
get them from the elementary
school.
The children are in a positive,
environment and learn problem-
solving skills. If we do not receive
funding by July 28, our program
will be forced to shut down.
Please, if you want to help in
this community, invest in the life
of a child by helping to keep this
program open.
Any further questions I will'be
glad to answer, you can reach me
at 227-1845 during the day or,
229-6505 in the evenings. A
donation of any amount would be
greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

The Auction House Legacy: The Port Theatre


By Jessica Summers
The Port Theatre fills with
dramatic music.
The audience falls silent.
Jaws drop and gasps are
heard when Rhett turns his back
on Scarlett, leaving her with only
one cold, brief retort...
"Gone With The Wind" was
very much loved by all of Port St.
Joe's movie-goers, along with the
rest of the nation, in 1941. For
this particular movie, patrons
were willing to pay more than
usual-$.45--even two years after
its national release date. The
three hour and 50 minute-long
movie drew a full house at each
showing during the three days it
was featured at the Port Theatre..
"All our film came from the
film fort and depot in. Atlanta,"
explains former projectionist. at"
the Port Theatre, Billy. Howell. "It
depended on how much you want-.
ed to pay for the movie, how quick-
you got it. 'Gone With The Wind'
had been on for about two years
S before we got it here." says How-
ell. ..
The theatre, now Wade Clark
Auctions, is over 60 years old. It,
was built in the late 1930's.
Transforming into a community
center, auditorium and. booming
business, the old Port Theatre was
immensely popular with Port St.
Joe residents. "Each Saturday,"
remembers Howell, "you had a
double feature, a serial, and a car-
toon, and it (the theatre) would be
full." *
The Port Theatre, part of the
Martin Theatre chain, was a first-
class operation. The 7.000 sq. ft.
building was suited to virtually
every need imaginable. An elevat-
ed back entrance allowed trucks
to back up directly to the stage
and more easily transfer equip-
ment, There was even a special
smoking section, walled off,
behind the seating area with a
window where smokers could still
watch the show.
Most, importantly, the stage
Ibslde was tremendous. It had,
many red velvet curtains and was
perfect for performances. There
were two dressing rooms and
three floors going up the side of
the stage for controlling the back-
drops for plays and raising and
lowering the projector screen for
movies.
The theatre was a booming
business with lots of time and

mary goals of the management.
Each movie ticket was numbered,
and the number was written down
from the first sale and then again
from the last. This inventory sys-
tem was also utilized at the con-
cession booth. Each popcorn bag
was numbered and accounted for.
"If you worked there, you could
eat all the free popcorn you want-
ed, but you better get a shoebox
or something to put it in. You
couldn't use a' bag unless you
paid for it." Howell remembers. A
bag of popcorn cost five cents.
Another example of the the-
atre's strict policies: A man was
hired simply to stand by the door
and weed out potential pea-shoot'-
ers. The man would, take away the


child's offending equipment, and
give it back as he or she left the
theater.

Segregation was prominent in
the Port Theatre, like many other
theatres in the south. Blacks sat
infthe balcony only. White people
sat either on the ground level or in
the balcony. There was a separate
entrance for colored people, as
well as a separate bathroom. "We
had the best seats in the house,"
said one black man, of the
arrangement.
The building, which sat about
1,000, was the first in Port St. Joe
to have,air conditioning. The term-

"cooling tower." This was com-
posed of a tower .that sprayed
water and a fan inside that cooled
the air through the water which
was then forced into the theater.
It was likely the most popular
place in town. This huge building
became an unofficial civic center
for Port. St. Joe. Vaudeville acts
traveling from Atlanta performed
on stage, as well as other talent
like The Mills Brothers and Burt
Lancaster. Churches even held
programs in the building. The the-
atre was above all, the most social
place one could visit in Port St.
Joe.
"Imagine a recreation place
where everybody just visited. You
watched the movie the first time'
and then just visited for the rest of
the day. Everybody who was any-
body was there" remembers
Shirley Williams, a past fre-
quenter to the Port Theatre.
"I do remember the courting
days...I caught me many a
boyfriend at) this theatre," she
laughs. Later she reveals that she
and her future husband met at a
movie here.
Normally, the first movie was
shown at 9:30 a.m., with a total of
three movies shown daily. Howev-
er, the theatre's management
adapted to the community. It was
closed down Sunday evening
while many people attended
church, and re-opened after-
wards. On some nights, hours
were extended specifically to
accommodate night-shift workers
at the mill. The shift that wanted
to see the movie. could pool
together a sum of money, usually
about $15, and request that a
movie be played after theater

hours.
During this era, film was
made of celluloid; the first syn-
thetic plastic material, resistant
to water, oils, and dilute acids.
This material was extremely flam-
mable, often igniting from the
heat of the projector. In 1943, an
arsonist attempted to burn the
theatre by dousing the floors in
gas and strewing film throughout
the building. Fortunately, he was
caught by Billy Howell and his
friends, just before lighting it all
up. Obviously. due to such poten-
tially devastating safety hazards,
the use of celluloid has become
less and less common.
The very first movie ever
played in the theatre was "Gold

form of entertainment. This
caused many movie theatres to
close due to loss of revenue.
After going out of business,
the theatre fell into disuse. It col-
lected dust and debris for many
years until in the 80s a company
called Gulf Twin, Inc. attempted
to bring the theatre back to life.
Bill Lyles and Bill Crawford,
through Gulf Twin, planned to
turn the decrepit moviehouse into
-a twin cinema. They had a new
_roof installed, only to see it blown
:off in '85 due to Hurricane Kate.
:The cost of repairs the building
-required then was so monumental
-that Lyles and Crawford aban-
:doned the project and the theatre
:was boarded up and left to rot,
-again, this time for 10 years.
The 40 foot high walls are
- composed of 300,000 bricks with
-steel trusses supporting the ceil-
ing-"very valuable" construction,
;says Wade. So why would the city
"let such an expensive edifice rot?
SActually the city had, at, one point,
Applied for a grant to take care of
.the building, but was denied it,
possibly because they were not
- the owners of it, so Wade specu-
. lates.
S Finally, in 1995, the building
-was purchased by Paula and
.,Wade Clark who gave it the atten-
tion it so desperately needed. Mr.
Clark remembers the depth of the
:debris the first time he walked
into the theatre was no lower than
- his knees and only got worse, the
-more he saw.
"It was a disaster," he bluntly
states.
One hundred and fifty tons of
debris were hauled out of the the-,
ater. (In the process of re-roofing,
the old roof was shoveled into a
hole in the theatre's ceiling, for
"future" removal. When the hurri-
cane took off the new roof, the
rubbish was left there for the
Clarks to dispose of.) After the
roof was demolished by the hurri-
cane, the building, with all its
wooden parts and even the old
equipment, worth thousands of
dollars, was exposed to the ele-
ments until the Clarks came to
the rescue, however, too late to
save most of it. Tearing down the
rotten parts and cleaning up what
was left took the Clarks four
months, eight days of which were
spent hauling trash with a front-


This is the inside of the theatre as it was before the Clark's began their four-month renovation
period. The ceiling was gone, and literally tons of trash filled the building. Now, having rebuilt the
roof, as well as the balcony area, the couple live upstairs.


end loader.
Despite the enormity of the
task the Clarks faced, the couple
was in love with the building.
"It is so fascinating.. This is a
diamond in the rough," Paula
smiles as she glances around.
In the process of tearing down
and building back up the balcony,
many treasures were actually
found. The Clarks found 'a log
book in which were every movie as
well as the number and price of
tickets sold from a few years in
the '60s. Many different tickets
stubs were found, some still legi-
ble, but the most prized of items
found underneath the balcony
was a wallet lost by Gene Raffield
in the mid '50s. In it were his draft
card, his STAC house card and a
doctor's bill for two dollars. Mr.
Raffield was as amazed by the dis-
covery as Wade was himself and
,allowed the wallet to be pho-
tographed by The Star. It has
since been adopted as a keepsake
by the Clarks.
This beautiful one-of-a-kind
building will most likely never


show feature films again, but,
unlike that all too brief time peri-
od, the Clarks will keep the the-
atre in use and in good condition
for a long time to come. For now,
it is under perpetual .renovation.
In the, near future, the Clarks
have plans to restore the marquee
on the building's facade., along
with other aesthetic improve-
ments.


"The Port Theatre-where
happiness costs less" was the slo-
gan; and in its day, the theatre
brought many smiles to local
faces. Nearly every adult who grew
up in Port St. Joe has happy
memories of going to the movies.
Now, the old edifice has been
given a new, life and another
chance to liven up the community.

tiBy Andy Wilkinson, Financial
Advisor
With so many different U.S.
equities and diversified equity
products, available, many
investors fail to recognize the ben-
efits of investing outside the U.S.
'This oversight could prove to be a
Detriment to a long-term invest-
,ment portfolio, because while the
'U.S. provides an array of invest-
'ment opportunity, international
'investing offers a broad selection
-of investment alternatives, the
.potential for competitive returns,
.and increased diversification that
can reduce investment risk-all
'compelling reasons to, explore
global investing further.
Investing in international
markets creates a level of diversi-
fication that can help reduce port-
folio volatility. As many investors
know, the;ups and downs of stock
market cycles are affected by dif-
ferent variables including:
investor perception, interest rates,
political developments, inflation,
and a host of economic indicators.
The direction and strength of
9 these variables is not consistent
:,from one country to another, and
therefore, foreign market move-
ments do hot typically mirror
those of the U.S.. stock market.
For this reason, overseas invest-
ing can cushion a portfolio
against a significant drop in the
U.S. stock market and vice versa,
thereby making it easier to ride
out downturns In any one market.
The' United States is consid-
ered a global economic. leader by
virtually all observers. However,
because of its development and
success, the U.S. is not able to
sustain the rapid growth rates of
-less developed economies without,
triggering inflation. The additional

room to grow and an ability to
grow at a faster pace are two char-
acteristics of foreign economies
that are very attractive to many
investors. In addition, foreign
countries are also host to some of
the world's leading companies.
For example, while companies
such as Nestle, Nokia, Adidas,
and Burger King are all household
names in the United States, each
is based in a foreign country.
The potential rewards of
international, investing are com-
pelling; however, these rewards
are accompanied by special risks'
that should be carefully evaluated
by every investor. Because stocks
are pricedin the currency of their
home markets, investors in over-
seas companies assume a curren-
cy risk. For example, companies
traded on the Japanese market
are priced in yen; therefore, the
value of an investment in a
Japanese company will hinge on
the exchange rate between the
dollar and the yen at the time of
the' investment. Because
exchange rates fluctuate with
great frequency it can be very dif-
ficult to accurately evaluate an
investment opportunity.
Liquidity is also a variable to
keep in mind when investing over-
seas. Because foreign markets
typically have lower trading vol-
umes than domestic markets, it,
may be difficult to trade certain
securities in the absence of sup-
ply or demand. In these instances,
profitable trading can become
extremely difficult. Liquidity risk
is intensified in emerging mar-
kets, where volume canbe. espe-
cially thin.
Another concern frequently
associated with international
investing is political Instability.

Major political events such as
elections, changes in economic
policy or trade agreements, and
civil unrest present a serious risk
to the health of a foreign market.
Because these events can occur
with very little notice and have the
potential to devastate a market,
international investors must care-
fully monitor the political and eco-


nomic stability of foreign coun-
tries.
Overseas investors must also
keep in mind that foreign compa-
nies do not face the same type of
disclosure regulations that U.S.
companies must comply with-a
discrepancy that makes research
more challenging and time con-
suming. Also, accounting meth-


ods differ from country to coun-
try, further increasing the com-
plexity of investment research.
Given the rewards and risks
of overseas investing, many
investors wisely choose to diversi-
fy their portfolios with foreign
exposure through international
mutual funds or the careful guid-
ance of a qualified financial advi-


su. l iia .ppifach hei IIlps investors
take advantage of the many excit-
ing opportunities under the guid-
ance of an experienced profes-
sional who can help manage some
of the inherit risks. To learn more
about international investment
opportunities, contact your finan-
cial advisor.

Panhandle Memorial Gospel Sing


The' annual Panhandle
Memorial Gospel Sing for 2000
was held at Blountstown High
School Auditorium on Saturday,
July 8.
This sing was started in the
memory of Luverne Youngblood of
Port Saint Joe who went to
Heaven November 10, 1996. This
year the name of the late Elmer
Rogers, famous gospel singing leg-
end from this area, was added to
share the honor.
Sponsors of the sing each
year are Elizabeth Youngblood
McCormick of Panama City, Gary
Youngblood of .Marietta, Georgia
and Charlane Morris of Chipley.
The sing has rotated between
Blountstown and Port Saint Joe,
since its beginning in 1997.
The 1999 sing was held in
February at the Centennial
Building and may have been the
last performance to use the
Centennial Building stage before
the renovations began. The 1999
sing included a talent contest had
a record attendance of over 300.
This ,year's sing featured the
talents of GloryBound from
Tallahassee,, Providence Quartet
from Cairo, Georgia; Lucy Miller,
the 1999 Panhandle Memorial
Gospel Sing Talent Contest win-
ner, of Panama City; and The
Happy Rhythm Boys, a popular
singing group from -the 1960s,
featuring Bernton Hamm from
Wewahitcka and Edward Young-
blood from Hartford, Alabama.
The large crowd was on their feet


many times cheering wildly and
offering praises to God during this
sing.
This year the sing held a
showcase to allow local perform-
ers to display their talent. In the
showcase were seventeen singing
groups from the Panhandle,
southern Georgia and lower
Alabama. Next year, along with
featured performers, plans are to
have a showcase and talent con-
test.
A venue to hold the 2001 sing
has not been chosen. Locations
currently being considered are
Crawfordville, Tallahassee and
Panama City. Port St. Joe would
be considered if renovations for
the Centennial Building would be
completed, stated Gary Young-
blood.

Michael A. Guido
Metter, Georgia


There was a law student who
was walking away from God.
One night he was awakened by
a lightning flash. He reversed his
direction. He began walking
toward God.
Then he made a great feast
and invited his close friends.
Just before midnight, Martin
Luther said, "This is the last
night you and I shall meet as
boon companions. Tonight I
enter the convent. Tomorrow I'll
be a monk."
His old life was gone forever.
A new life had begun.
Right now the Lord calls you.
He says, "Follow Me!" Dare
you?
of our beloved Irene Bolden Addi-
son. Please continue to pray that.
God will grant us acceptance,
understanding and peace. May
His blessings be upon each of you.

Final Teen Pregnancy Tip'


Teen Pregnancy Prevention
Month is here. To kick off aware-
ness in our community, one tip
from the "Ten Tips for Parents To
Help Their Children Avoid Teen
Pregnancy," is being 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 aduLlts can do
to reduce the risk of kids becom-
ing pregnant before they've grown
up.
Final Tip # 10 These first
nine tips for helping your chil-
dren avoid teen pregnancy
work best when they occur as
part of strong, close relation-
ships with your children that
are built from an early age.
Strive for a relationship that is
warm in tone, firm in discipline,
and rich in communication, and
one that emphasizes mutual trust
and respect. There is no single
way to create such relationships,
but the following habits of the
heart can help:
Express love and affection
clearly and often. Hug your
children, and tell them how
much they mean to you. Praise
specific accomplishments, but
remember that expressions of
affection should be offered
freely, not just for a particular
achievement.
Listen carefully to what your
children say and, pay thought-
ful attention to what they do.
