Storms Rattle Gulf County


Straight Line Winds and Waterspout Make a Mess On Both Ends of County


The north and south ends of
Gulf county have been rocked by
twisters in the past week. These
fierce batches of storms have
caused considerable damage to
homes and property.
Last Thursday, what are
known as straight line, winds
struck south. qf Wewahitchka, in
the vicinity of Borders Road. This
weather phenomena is often con-
fused with a tornado or water-
spout. Similarly, its winds can
reach up to 100 miles per hour.
It continued on southeast
through lower Honeyville, cross-
ing to Forehand Road, then to the
. Mace Martin Road area.
In the wake of this storm, 10
to 15 homes were damaged; at
least three homes with major
damage. One mobile home was
blown off its blocks, and another
*was smashed by a falling tree.
Mainly. sheds, fences, barns, and
power lines were damaged or
destroyed by the strong winds.
"Our biggest concern was the
llghtning.and wind," Marshall Nel-
son, Emergency Manage-
ment/911 coordinator states.


Due to the dry conditions com-
bined with the storm's effects.
several fires were started, however
were managed. to be kept under
control.
Damage done to the Howard
Creek area was not as specific;
however, residents were without
power for some time.
Waterspout Hits Indian Pass
On Monday, July 24, early in
the morning, a waterspout came
off the Gulf onto the shore of Indi-
an Pass. Directly in the path of
the twister were three rental
houses which sustained varying
degrees of damage. It was report-
ed that 13 feet of boardwalk was
destroyed from the first house hit.
Then, the neighboring house's
huge gazebo was struck, lifting
the roof off and propelling it into
the next house.
Eye witness Tim Swilley, who
was staying in a rental unit a few
houses down, reports that the
waterspout looked to be' six to
eight feet wide.
"That was the closest we've
come to a tornado," says Laurie
Dawson, a tourist who was stay-
ing in one of the damaged houses.


"It sounded like a freight train. It


was the loudest thing I'd ever heard."

Rates Almost 1 Mill

Exceeds Rollback Rate .49 Mill 45 Candidates Qualify to Run


The Gulf County School
Board is preparing to hold budget
hearings on its proposed 2000-
2001 budget on August 1st 'at
6:00 in the board's meeting room.
Local taxpayers will see an
overall reduction in millage rates
of .944 mill-from 7.882 to 6.938
mills.
Included in the nearly $16.7
million budget are necessary
funds for the operation of sys-
tem's schools, plus several major
maintenance, replacement and
purchase needs. Some of those
items include replacement and
maintenance on air conditioning
and heating systems, communi-
cations equipment, purchase of
two buses, and refurbishing of
Wewahitchka Elementary
School's stage.
"We've focused our attention
on the classroom, while watching
out for the taxpayers' dollars."
School Superintendent Jerry
Kelley said of the millage reduc-
t!on. .


The .944. mill reduction
exceeds the rollback rate by
..,almost-[-onorhalf mill (.49,. mill).
%he rollback rate Is the millage
rate required to raise the same
amount of local tax dollars as
were raised the previous year

Increases and decreases have
been figured in.
This year's taxable values
have increased by approximately
$75 million for the county. Last
year's millage rate' was 7.882.
mills, the rollback rate falls, at
7.425 mills, and the proposed
new millage rate, if approved, will
be 6.938 mills.
The school board and teach-
ers union.are currently negotiat-
ing for teacher raises and step
increases.

budget, hearing dates, and histor-'
ical summary can be found on

GC Fire Departments


Have A Busy Week


Fire departments from across
the county were busy' during the
past week.
Last Thursday, the
Wewahitchka Volunteer Fire
Department answered a call at
East Creekview Drive in Stone
Mill Creek.'
Fire Chief Brian Cox reported
that the fire was apparently
caused. by a young. child with
matches in -her bedroom. The
mother, Stacy Johnson, extin-


gushed the blaze, but sustained
smoke inhalation and was trans-'
ported to Bay Medical Center by
Wewahitchka ambulance person-
nel.
Chief Cox wanted the remind
Everyone that these type fires can
occur before you know it. The
inquisitive nature of children can
make it difficult to keep all
lighters and matches out of their
reach. 'He urged all parents to

County Board Talks About


Sto0mwater/PavinglHorses


Gulf County commissioners
Worked through a relatively light
agenda in short fashion during its
regular meeting Tuesday evening.
At the top of the order of busi-
ness was a public hearing for a
$245,000 Disaster 'Recovery
Community Development Block
Grant for stormwater improve-
ment in Highland View.
The funds are related to
FEMA money from Hurricane Earl
aimed. at benefitting low and mod-
erate income persons. Mitigation
and recovery allocations are being
focused on damages caused by
HurriTcane Earl.
The project will include
replacing damaged sections of 18,
24, and 48 inch culvert, con-
structing culvert endwalls, and
reworking approximately 1.450
linear feet of the primary drainage
ditch in the Highland View
community.
Paving Underway
You might have noticed
asphalt trucks and paving equip-
ment making their way around
the county over the past several
days. Work crews with C. W.
Roberts Construction are begin-
ning to work on the county's
paving program.
Commissioner Tommy Knox


pointed out that some of the work
being done in the Highland View
area was not complete. The first
course of, paving is a leveling
course and' will be followed with a
finished coat within the next few
days.
Just over $1.4 million dollars
worth of paving will be done
throughout the county with the
largest single portion of the work
taking place on the Doc Whitfield
Road. Current plans are to widen
and resurface the road from
Highway 71 to the Gulf Forestry
prison camp.
Horses On The Beach
Humans aren't the only crea-
tures leaving tracks on the beach-
es of Gulf County these days.
Horseback riding on the beach
has become increasingly popular,
and as with most new ventures,
problems sometimes arise.
Commissioners asked their
attorney. Tim McFarland, to
address the county ordinance as
it relates to people accessing the
beach through the county's park,
Salinas Park, at the Cape via
horseback.
The park is evidently being
used as a staging area and access

Editorial Commentary Columns Written by Willie Ramsey, Editor


Death, Taxes and


Then Some More Taxes

You know what they say-"the only two things for certain are
death and taxes."
I don't necessarily agree with that, but for the sake of this col-
umn, the statement does provide food for thought. -
Taxes have been in the news over the last few weeks-first
inheritance, and then the "marriage tax.:"
The inheritance tax adds new meaning to the above state-
ment. It proves that our government can even get to you "beyond
the grave." There probably aren't many of you reading this col-
umn, including myself, who will have to worry much one way or l
the other about this tax.
We probably will not have accumulated enough total value in
our estate during our lifetime to draw the lopsided inheritance tax
penalty that takes away the majority or a major portion of a per-
sqn's estate and gives it to the government rather than to the per-
son's heirs. The question is-"Just because the tax only applies
to a small percentage of our county's population does that make
it right?"
Many a family farm or family business has had to be sold or
mortgaged to the hilt to satisfy the government's take on inheri-
tance taxes.
A majority of opur country's congressmen and senators agree
that this is an unfair tax-at least to the extent of its current exis-
tence. '
The same congressmen and senators agree that the marriage
penalty tax needs to be changed. The logical question-"Why
should it cost you more in taxes if you're married than if you're
not?"-sounds like another simple common sense issue. Those
seem to sometimes be the hardest to deal with though.
The president has said the veto pen is sharp for both of these
bills. Furthermore, he has stated that the two-thirds' majority
required to override this veto is not there, so. there's not much
that can be done about his veto.
Reports about budget surpluses and what to do with the extra
cash have filtered down through the news media. There have even
been discussions about surplus in the once troubled Social
Security "retirement" fund.
I believe the simple majority of our legislators have the right
idea-give it back to the taxpayers and let them decide how to
spend their money.


Three Great Shows;


Thanks A Bunch!
Did we have a lot going on during the Fourth of July weekend,
or what?. .. ,
I don't believe there could possibly be- another community our
size that had any more going on than what we did during the cel-
ebration of our country's birthday.
Mexico Beach, Port St. Joe, then Wewahitchka provided three
mighty fine fireworks displays, complete with all of the trim-
mings.
Port St. Joe added a new twist this year with the addition of
the pirates' ship, battle, and invasion at Frank Pate Park. A few
of those pirates tried to get a little out of hand at the expense of
Gulf County Sheriff Frank McKefthen. Police Chief Jay Leffert.
and the rest of the forces helped iron out that problem' before the
sheriff walked the plank. .
I really don't know if the three communities coordinated their
activities to arrange so. a person could attend all three events, but
I do know of several folks who took in the triple whammy and are
glad they did.
Folks are beginning to come from all around to this area on
the 4th and part of that draw are the professional events that are,
put on yearly in Gulf County arid'Mexico Beach.
Tourist development committees" from both Gulf County and"
Mexico Beach have been instrumental in helping fund these
events, along with community involvement and a ton of volun-
teers. All of these groups and individuals are to be commended
for making this such a special time.
Thanks a bunch


So iWbb ith e,.,.
Hunker Down With Kes by Kesley Colbert'



Ribbit!


I was listening to a radio sta-
tion in Atlanta the other day that
had some PHD on proclaiming that
licking the sweat off of a frog would
help fight depression I don't know
about you, but I ain't never been
that. depressed!
Getting soaked in by sdme-
thing like that could warp a body.
for life! This intellectual highbrow
espoused on and on about the
calming effect of being "one" with
the frog .,. the therapeutic value
of the natural sweat produced by'
the animal.... the mental release
of focusing, all your concentration
on the task at hand ....
It's my own fault for tuning In
to one of those northern stations.
When I feel a deep bout with
depression coming on, I break out
the Tin Roof ice cream. Let me ask


you now. which one had you
rather become "one" with? I get me
a double bowl full and go to con-
centrating on the task at handle
If things get really bad, I replay
Jimmy Stewart's It's A Wonderful
L'fe. I take to recalling each pitch
of the 1964 World Series. I ponder
on floating down the Cascade River
with Tom, Bill, Joke and Grover
Cleveland Alexander. I thank God
above that Leon missed me with
the spears
There's all kinds of ways to
deal with depression and none of
them have to do with frogs!
Plus, think about the poor
frog, I've never met one frog in my
whole life that looked comfortable
with some sick human leaning
down and slobbering all over his
back.
I'll tell you something else, we
used to play with a lot of frogs
back on. slow days-and I don't
remember any of them sweating at
all. You don't catch them out dig-
ging post holes or holding "jump
offs" in July or August. When It
gets really hot, they float around


on a cool, wet lily pad and let the
flies come to them!
I've never met a stupid frog!
They're friendly enough if you
just want to take 'em to school and
show 'em off. But you nie one up
or mess with 'em too much and
they'll put a wart on you that
Marie Leveaux can't rub off!
This genius up in Atlanta
probably has a brother who is a
tongue bump removal specialist .
. They're both gonna get rich.'off
this hooey.
I know there's money -in frogs.
I carried a big ole bull frog to'
school once in my lunch sack. I
told LaRenda and' Ruth Ann and
Bernice and some others that it
was really a handsome prince and,
if the-right girl gave it akiss I
only charged a quarter. Me and
that -frog had 'em lined. up clear
around to the Home Economics
building!
I was "cleaning up" till NMary E.
Pendleton leaned down and puck-
ered upl That frog did a double
back flip. jumped three cafeteria
tables in one leap and was gone!


He wasn't sweating over the situa-
tion mind you. it was just his way
of telling me there's some things a
frog won't do!
Maybe the good PHD has fig-
ured a way to get his frogs to stand
still. He may even have found a
frog that will "go for" all the atten-
tion, not mind the licking, won't
"hop out" on him at a crucial
moment, etc .but I bet he can't
make 'em sweat! '
Ricky' Gene had a small, light
green frog he carried around in hfs
shirt pocket. He named him Elbert
and he'd spend most of lunch and
all of study hall teaching him to
jump on command. The idea here
was to find some unsuspecting
soul and have Elbert descend sud-
denly, without warning ...
We picked Corine Quisenberry
'cause she set in front of Ricky
Gene in World History. The first
time Mrs. Bouldin .moved to the
chalk board, Ricky Gene eased
Elbert into position and silently
"commanded" him to jump. The
frog was supposed to leap over her

a fried potato and mustard
sandwich, back in my early
cotton-picking days, to a
modern wiener-jalapeno fla-

good at the moment..
Our backyard neighbor, a
Mr. Lew Ferris, made his own
'social security' by farming a
little. He'd plant about a two
bale cotton crop, a few
peanuts, and some corn to
feed his mules. This supple-
mented his retirement

He'd hire us boys to pick
his cotton crop and earn a
little summer money.


Momma fixed our lunch of
fried potato sandwiches.
There's a girl who works
at The Star who eats odd
sandwiches when she finds
herself having to stay at

press of work. She'll empty a
can of tuna fish between two

since I have tried banana,
pineapple, onion,' tomato,
and even a cucumber sand-_
wich oncel11!

IF I GIVE YOU the idea
that if it wasn't for sandwich-
.es I .stand the danger "of
"starving to death." You
might very well draw that
conclusion.
Sandwiches have been
that important a portion of
my d eet. .
I've eaten so many hot


piece of -pine bark stuck
between two.'slices of bread .
even .with mustard and
pickle -
Biut I didn't, start this out
as : a diatribe -against sand-
wiches I didn't like-or like.
If I did, I'd tell you about one'
day several. years ago in
Atlanta. I was on the City
Commission at the time and
we had taken a "Southern"
jet to Atlanta to do war with
EPA (that'll let you know
about how long, Southern
Airline was still flying to
Atlanta).
When dinner time came,
we all paused for a sandwich.
We went to the Regency
Hotel with its revolving
restaurant on top.
I asked Tom Coldewey


that 'should have a .good
selection.
He said, "That 'reuben'
looks good and it isn't. your,
ordinary sardwichl!"
"What's a 'reuben'?" I'.
asked.
He replied, "It's corned
beef, sauerkraut, dill pickle
and'swiss cheese on rye."
That sounded "different"
enough, to tickle my taste, so
I decided to try it.
It was good!
I've been a supporter of
'reuben' sandwiches ever
since that time.
I've never gone back to
the Regency for another
'reuben', but if I ever catch
myself in downtown Atlanta,
at dinnertime, I'll know


I'LL TELL YOU what my
favorite sandwich is. It lisn'ta
hamburger, or a cheeseburg-
.er. Not even a hot dog nor a
grouper or a chicken. The'e
are all good,, but a ,connois-
seur of sandwiches as I have
necessarily developed into
can't .select one of those. Ydu
can understand where I'm
coming from, can't you? My
favorite sandwich had to be
unique and tasty as -well as
filling.
My favorite sandwich is, a
takeoff on an old favorite. My
favorite sandwich is a bacon,
EGG, lettuce and tomato,
served on tcdasted white
bread with a slather of mus-
tard.


Guess which one I
get very often?

St. Joe/Arvida Moves Into



Gulf With Development Plans


' .

Arvd
S'



".


St. Joe/Arvida has been busy
over the past several months
making plans and taking initial
steps to begin its first substantial
land development in Gulf County.
That development was
announced recently on St. Joe
Company land along St. Joseph.
Bay and inland between Dixie
Belle Curve and Butler's
Restaurant. For the, sake of mak-
ing applications for preliminary
plat approval the development
has been called Dixie Belle Curve
Subdivision, but according to
Project Manager John Hendry,
not for long.
Hendry, his wife Susie, and
son Gabriel, recently moved to
Gulf County and are hoping to
build one of the first homes in the
new St. Joe/Arvida project.
During a recent program with
the Port St.; Joe Rotary Club, one
of the first questions asked.
Hendry was about the name of
the development, and several sug-
gestions were made for, considera-
tion. Hendry said the current
name was being used during the
subdivision application process,
but ultimately a new name would
be selected.
The' 108-lot subdivision has
received preliminary plat approval
and if all goes well with future
permits, work could get under
way by September to develop
infrastructure. Hendry forecast
that the company could begin
marketing lots as early as March,
2001. .
Community Concept
Hendry spoke about his pro-
ject manager responsibilities as
being much more than just selling
108 lots in a subdivision. In fact,
he said he much preferred the
project be called a community
rather than subdivision.
"If people In the town don't
like what we're doing, then It
won't be a success," he said,
reflecting over his charge to help
bring together a development that
Project Manager John
Hendry reviews the layout of
the development.

The development will feature

"The beach will remain open

The development could have a
dramatic economic impact when
the property is sold and devel-
oped.
Hendry estimated the proper-.

improved with structures, total

Hendry said the company will
likely set the stage for the devel-
opment theme by building and
developing a few of the lots them-
selves as they begin to market the,
property.
Arvida's New Offices
St. Joe/Arvida's new offices
are' ,located at the Chateau
Nemours. The company has
leased the bed and breakfast as
its headquarters from owner
Jeanette Palmnier.
What seems like a strange
turn of events is actually more of
an evolution from the old St. Joe
Company' to the htew.
The Chateau was once the
corporate office and quarters for
visiting company executives. After
it was sold to Palmer, she refur-
bished the structure and convert-
ed it into a bed and breakfast
emphasizing the community's
history which has been directly
associated with the "life" of the
structure and St. Joe.
The second floor of the
Chateau will continue to be used
as a bed and breakfast, managed
by Jeanette Palmer. for the fore-
seeable future.

Bouldin was sweating over her job.

About the only thing not

Here's a ,real life situation
where a frog brought on city wide
depression.
The learned professor would
be well advised to study on this

rampant for weeks after Elbert's

PROPERTY OWNERS DESERVE A TAX CUT
"Gulf County can afford to roll back property taxes based on the growth in
taxable property values the past year, and the future development underway."


Growth has hit Gulf County in
a very measurable way: prop-
erty values. after adjusting for the
paper mill closure, have increased
24% in the last year, largely due to
new construction along the South
Gulf County coastline. Even losing
the paper mill value, the taxable
assessed property has grown to
over 8827 million dollars.
G ross Taxable Values by year
are shown below:


1998
1999
2000


$675,528,422
753,131,808
827,634,375


Gulf County has had an increase
of property values of over $152
million in just, three years. Even
greater growth lies ahead: in the
current fiscal year, over 135 new
construction building permits rep-
resenting $15 million in pre-con-
struction property values has been
issued; the new marina and shop-
ping center in Port St. Joe; and the
St. Joe-Arvida Dixie Belle Curve
development, which at build-out
will single-handedly contribute an
estimated $95 million in new tax-
able property for Gulf County.
P property development will con-
tinue to be strong in Gulf
County for the coming five,years,;
according to St.Joe-Arvida's plans
along U.S.98. The industrial area
planned along' the canal, and the
Port Authority's .development
plans will bring even more taxable

O ver $100,000,000 in growth
has come from South Gulf
County! The time Is here when our
property tax rates should be cut to
reflect the tremendous Increase in
tax base. By Florida law, we are
entitled to a tax reduction to a
"roll-back" rate, unless the County
Commission approves Increases
above that mandated tax rate.
ver $4,500,000 irn-'eash
reserves is currently in Gulf
County accounts. With a growing
tax base, the taxpayers of Gulf
County deserve, some relief.
As County Commissioner, I will

concerns Herb, a once successful

some consolation in his off and on

has trekked to Hollywood from
Brooklyn where Herb had simply
up and left wife, daughter and sori
16 years earlier.
Libby is extremely confident
and articulate and she tells Herb
she wants him to get her into

Yeager pointed out that the busi-

BEWARE OF BEES
Summertime isn't a time to forget about
insects. They aren't likely to let us anyway. The area
of major concern here is the bee family, including hor-
nets, yellow jackets, wasps, and the like.
While most sting victims suffer only some pain;'
a local reaction of burning, redness, and a large welt
formation, some are not so lucky. For those sensitive
to bee sting venom, it could be a matter of life or
death. They should see a physician, be desensitized
and get information on the treatment. A bee sting kit
should be carried.

For 11 'years, the members of

What's New In

FL Summer 2000
With summer in full swing
and fall just around the comer,
many new and exciting attrac-
tions, luxurious accommodations
and extraordinary exhibits have
made their way to the Sunshine
State. "Visit Florida," the pri-
vate/public partnership designed.
to promote tourism to Florida, is
among those announcing a new
addition.
"Visit Florida" recently cre-
-ated a new department to better
serve the tourism marketing
, needs of the state's growing
nature/heritage/cultural tourism
arenas, as well as non-metropoli-
tan areas.
"We have created the New
Product Development Department
to better facilitate our efforts in
helping these areas attract more
visitation," said Austin L. Mott,
President and CEO for "Visit
Florida."
Mott announced the promo-
tion of Kerri Post to the position of
vice president, New, Product
Development. Post formerly had
been director of New Product
-Development. Two new positions
also will be added to the depart-
ment.
"Ms. Post's department will
have the responsibility of imple-
menting our newly created strate-
gic plan to focus additional
resources into helping the state's
less populated counties market
themselves more effectively to
prospective visitors," Mott said.
Post is currently working with
Gulf County's Chamber of

Commerce. to develop a plan for
well-managed tourism. The public
is invited to attend a Chamber of
Commerce meeting on August 3
at 7:45 a.m., E.T., at Linda's
Restaurant to discuss ideas
Regarding tourist management for
,this area.

The troop traveled the Pacific
from Sydney to Tokyo during
World War II, together invading
places like New Guinea.
Fellow company member Ted
Myers of Amherst, New York (who
could not be present at this year's
reunion) wrote the following
.poem conveying his experiences
in New Guinea's jungles. His com-
rades all agree that "never truer
words were put on paper."
IN THE JUNGLES OF NEW,
-." ; .' GUINEA,
n the jungles of New Guinea,
Where the ants & lizards play.
Where the weather In December
Us the same as "tis in May.
*,. Where the sky Is always cloudy
and the grass is always green.
Where your tent Is always muddy
and your clothes are never clean.

In the jungles of New Guinea,
where rio trains ever blow.
Where you never see white
women
and the natives wear no clothes.
Where the buzzing of mosquitoes
Robs all men of their sleep,
Where you never see a drug store
though the atabrine is cheap.

In the jungles of New Guinea,
where it rains most everyday.
Where no church bells ever ring
for Sunday is just another day.
Where the air is always stuffy"
and your head most always
hurts.
Where there is no civilization,
and the women do the work.


In thejungles of New Guinea,


where the mail is always late,
Christmas cards come in April
are considered up to date.
Where the sun is never shining
and the moon is not made for
love,
The sky is streaked with search-
lights,
spotting Tojo's planes above.

In the jungles of New Guinea,
so happy we will be,
When at last the war is over
and our nation once more free.
Then take me back to my old
home,, .
the state I love so well,
For this God forsaken outpost
is a substitute for hell.

For the deal of your life,
see me!

to the request of the School,
District.
* In 1998, the School District
_ received a special legislative
appropriation of $369,494.
* In 1999, a special legislative
appropriation of $1,977,444
was provided to the School
District.
* In the 2000 Legislative Session,
the Gulf County School was
positioned again to receive
$1,331,193.97 in state fund-
ing. This became unnecessary'
when Florida Coast Paper
Company made payment of
property taxes required by the!
State of Florida in order for the,
Gulf School District to receive!
state educational funding. .
In making the presentations,
Doolin stated, "Without these spe-:
cial appropriations, the day to day
operation of the schools in Gulf
County would have been seriously
impacted. The Gulf County School
District would have suffered
major financial losses that would
have undermined educational
efforts in the county. There is no,
question that the efforts of the
members of the School Board,
School Superintendent Jerry
Kelley, and Worley were all critical
in helping to avoid major staff lay-
offs and other program reductions
during the period on non-pay-
ment of taxes after the mill clo-
:sure. Gulf County's educational
leaders are to be commended for
this effort."
The recognition presented
read as follows:
"The Small School District
Council Consortium recognizes,
the School Board of Gulf County
for outstanding leadership and.
advocacy in securing educational,
funding from the State of Florida
protecting the educational ser-
vices for the citizens of Gulf

A sick man stumbled into a
drug store and asked, "Can you v
give me something for my cold?";
"Did you bring your prescrip-
tion?" asked the druggist.
"No," answered the man, "but
I brought my cold."
People sometimes, seeking a
cure for sin, bring their own
prescription to the Lord. But the
Great Physician wants you to
come just as you are.
He's the cure for sin, sadness
and sorrow; for: temptation,
.trouble and tears; for weakness,.
wickedness and worry. He
makes no charge, and He has
never lost a case.
You're not too bad to come to
the Lord, and you're not good
enough to stay away. So come
to Him now, won't you?

William C. Hall
Our precious child and friend,
William Hall, age 8, went home to
the loving arms of our Lord,
Sunday, July 23. Born April 8,
1992, he was a meteor. that
crossed our sky and blessed our
lives for such a short time. He was
called away from us too soon as
the result of a jet-ski accident.
William was an excellent stu-
dent, a freckled-faced superstar in
every sport he embraced, from
soccer to baseball to skateboard-
ing. He was the spiritual and reli-
gious leader of the pack, always,
out front, always smiling and
polite, and always, the consum-
mate friend and good sport with
everyone he encountered.
Independent and out-going,
William knew Christ at an early
age, and lived a happy, energetic
life while on this earth.
He is survived by his beloved
mother, Rebecca Cleckley Hall
and her fiance, James Cary, his
idolized older brother and best
friend, Jacob Phillip Hall, all of
Panama City, and his birth father,
Ernie Hall, Jr.
While on earth, God placed
William in the loving home of a
wonderful extended family who
raised him with heart and rever-
ence and love for his surrounding
world. Many of his favorite
moments were spent in the back-
yard of his maternal grandpar-
ents, Charles, after whom William
was named, and Betty Cleckley of
Wewahitcha, who rejoice in the
time they had with William. He'
also enjoyed playing with -his
cousin Heather Strange, daughter
of Reuben and Joan Cleckley, his
devoted maternal uncle and aunt.
,Wiliam also spent many wonder-
ful times with his paternal grand-
mother, Mozelle Hall Gates of
Blountstown. He also leaves
:behind his cousins Brian and

Be Prepared for Thunderstorms & Lightning


By: Chris Floyd Disaster
Services Director Capital Area
Chapter American Red Cross
Thunderstorms are our most
common experience of severe
weather. The typical thunder-
storm is 15 miles in diameter and
lasts an average of 30 minutes.
Despite their small size, thunder-
storms are dangerous. Every
thunderstorm produces lightning
which kills more people each year
than tornadoes. Heavy rain from
thunderstorms can lead to flash
flooding. Strong winds, hail, and
tornadoes are also dangers asso-
ciated with some thunderstorms.
Of the estimated 100,000
thunderstorms that occur each
year in the United States, only
about 10%. are classified as
severe. The National Weather
Service considers a thunderstorm
severe if it produces hall at least
3/4 inch in diameter, wind 58
mph or higher or tornadoes. The
five main offspring of thunder-
storms are: lightning, floods,
straight-line winds, large hail and
S tornadoes.
Lightning occurs with all
thunderstorms. It averages 93
deaths and 300 injuries each

Trimming Time While

Cutting Your Grass
The Easy Way to Mairtain Your
Lawn
Everyone wants a beautiful
looking lawn. But the key is 'get-
thig your yard into shape without
spending your entire .weekend
cutting, watering, and fertilizing
your grass. There are ways you
can enjoy the. best-looking lawn
on the block without slaving over
it all weekend.
One of the most important.
steps is finding the right height for
your grass. There are several rea-
sons not to cut your grass too
short.
*First, grass grows from the
crown, not the blade tips. This
trait makes grass ideal for lawns
because it keeps on growing
despite the regular mowing off of
its upper stem, leaf sheath and
blades. This is also why it's impor-
tant not to damage grass crowns
by accidental scalping with the
mower. No crown, no grass!'
Second, keeping grass on the
longer side also allows It greater
surface area to carry out photo-
synthesis. This in turn results in
S healthier pTants-
S*Third. taller grass grows
slower than shorter grass. You
can use this simple fact to elimi-
nate up to 20 percent of the mow-
ing you do annually. That's a
savings of about eight hours for
the average lawn owner, not to
mention a savings of gasoline and
wear and tear on equipment.
-: *Finally, by keeping your
grass at the high end of its recom-
mended mowing height, you can
prevent 90 percent of all weeds
from germinating-and thereby
eliminate the need for herbicides.
Most cool season grass
should be cut when it reaches
heights of 3 to 3-1/2 Inches-typ-
ically once a week. Warm season
grass should be mowed when it is
2 to 2-1/2 inches tall. Cut no
more than one-third of the grass
height at each mowing to avoid
damage to plants.
If the lawn grows too high for-
you to cut off one-third the height
and have an acceptable length,
cupt off one-third now and mow
one-third off again in two or three
days. Cutting more than one-third
the height will cause grass clip-
pings to lie on top of the lawn and,
decompose more slowly, which
will give the grass., a more open,
bristly appearance.Short cutting
Irll also stunt or slow root grow
and weaken the grass plants.
Today's advice, contrary to 20
or 30.years ago, is to leave clip-
pings on the lawn. The old belief
that clippings contribute to thatch
build-up is false. Thatch is a
build-up of roots and stems, not
grass blades. Leaving clippings
where they fall not drionly saves -the
labor of collecting and composting
them, it also reduces the need for
adding fertilizer to your lawn and.,
helps to conserve soil moisture.
SThere are exceptions, how-
ever, to this advice. If you have
neglected your mowing or must
mow in. wet conditions, the long
clippings are likely to form heavy
soggy clumps that cover the
grass. In such tases, the clippings
should be removed so they do not
smother the grass plants that lie
beneath them.
Today's new mulching mow-
ers makes it even easier to leave
clippings where they fall. The deck
and blade designs enable these
mowers to cut each blade several


times, producing a finely chopped
clipping. They also allow for easy
height changes.
Practicing these simple steps
will leave your, lawn green and
lovely, and leave you with time to
enjoy it.

year. It also causes several hun-
dred million dollars in damage to
property and forests annually.
Flash floods/floods are the
number one thunderstorm killer...
nearly 140. fatalities each year.
Most flash flood deaths occur at
night and when people become
trapped in automobiles.
Straight line- winds are
responsible for most thunder-
storm wind damage. Winds can
exceed 100mph! One type of
straight line wind that can cause
extreme damage is a downburst, a
small area of rapidly descending
air beneath a thunderstorm.
Downbursts can reach speeds
equal to that of a strong tornado
and can be, extremely dangerous
to aviation.
Hail causes nearly $1 billion


If You Have Burial

Insurance-Beware
Bill Nelson, State Treasurer
and Insurance Commissioner
A$ you read this, there are
thousands and thousands of peo-
pie in Florida who may be over-
paying for their life insurance
specifically for. small-value" 'poli-
cies that seem to have modest
premiums. : ,
In fact, many of these policy-
holders don't' know, and likely
weren't told, that over their nor-
mal lifetimes those premiums
could far exceed the face value of
their policies.
Hundreds of thousands of
Floridians may be in this..boat,
because they were sold industrial
life Insurance policies, sometimes
called burial insurance. This kind
of policy-typically worth 8 1,000
or less-generates big profits for
Insurance companies, but has lit-
tie or no benefit for policyholders.
For the past two years, we
have fought hard for tougher reg-
ulations on so-called burial insur-
ance. This past March, we held a
public hearing in Tallahassee and
heard from consumers who said
they were misled or misinformed
in the purchase of burial policies.
Still, the insurance industry
lobbyists killed our reforms in the
Legislature.
For the problem In a nutshell.
consider the stories of just two
women:
eAn African-American wo-
man, now 65 and a quadriplegic,
was s-ld 21 'industrial life Insur-
ance policies between 1967 and
1976. Among other things, she
says her insurer used the cash
value from at least one of her pol-
cies to pay premiums on other
ones, without her knowledge.
*Another woman, now 70,
was sold several $1,000 burial
policies between 1964 and 1985.
To date, she has paid 84,700 in
premiums on three policies that,
together are worth only $3,000
upon her death.
In recent months, I have
heard similar stories from con-
sumers across the state. That's
why, in October. I initiated an.,
Investigation of burial insurance-
and other similar small-value
products. I believe several issues
warrant this investigation, among
them:
*The fact that premiums paid
may surpass the face amount of
the policy;
*The fact that some compa-i
nies significantly lowered costs by
changing from home collections to
billing through the mail. but may
not have passed any savings on to
consumers: and.
*The fact that there may have
been discriminatory activity with
respect to industrial life insur-
ance and similar policies, as com-
panies targeted low-income and
minorities.
Additionally, we Have. again,
filed legislation aimed at banning
industrial life insurance 'and,
more importantlyy. requiring that
companies annually disclose to
policyholders the total premiums
paid, cash value, and death bene-
fits under the policy.
With your support, lawmak-
ers in Tallahassee may get the
message this coming legislative
session. I hope so.
Meantime, we've produced a
brochure to provide useful infor-
mation to help consumers who
may have purchased industrial
life insurance. The brochure is
free and can be obtained by call-
ing the Florida .Department of
Insurance toll-free at 1-800-342-
2762. ,-


in damage to property and crops
annually. Large hail stones can
fall at speeds faster than 100mph.
The costliest U.S. hailstorm
occurred in Denver, Colorado in,
July, 1990, Total damage was,
$625 million.
Lightning is perhaps the most
spectacular phenomenon associ-
ated with thunderstorms. Most ,
lightning deaths and injuries
occur when people are caught
outdoors, most often in the sum-
mer months and during the after-,
noon and early evening. In the
past decade, over 15,000 light-
ning-induced fires nationwide
have resulted in several hundred'
million dollars a year in damage,
and the loss of two million acres of
'forest. Your chances of being
struck by lightning are estimated
to be 1 in 600,000 but could be


reduced by following safety rules.
What to listen for...
When conditions are favor-'
able for severe weather to develop,
a severe thunderstorm watch is
issued.
When severe weather' has
been reported by spotters or indi-
cated by radar, a severe thunder-
storm warning is issued.
Warnings indicate imminent dan-
ger to life and property to those in
the path of the storm.
What you can do-Be safe!
Before the storm.'..*
Check weather forecasts
before leaving for extended peri-
ods outdoors.
Watch for signs of
approaching storms."
Postpone outdoor activities
if thunderstorms are imminent.


This Is your best way to avoid
being caught'in a dangerous situ-
ation.
When a thunderstorm
approaches....
Remember: if you can hear
thunder, you are close enough to
the storm to be struck by light-
ning. Go to safe shelter immedi-
ately! '
Move to a sturdy building
or car. DO NOT take shelter in
small sheds, under isolated trees.
or in convertible automobiles.
Get out of boats and stay
away from water;
Avoid using the telephone
or any other electrical appliances.
Use the phone only in an emer-,,
gency.
Do not take a bath/shower.
Turn off air conditioners.


Get to higher ground n i,
flooding is possible. Abandon cars
and climb to higher ground. Note:
most flash flood deaths occur in
automobiles.
If caught outdoors and no
shelter Is nearby...
Find a low spot away from
trees, fences and poles. Make sure
the place is not subject to flood-
ing.
If you are in the woods,
take shelter under the shorter
trees.
If you feel your skin tingle
or your hair stand on end, squat
low to the ground on. the, balls of
your. feet. Place your hands on
your knees with your head
between them. Make yourself the
smallest target possible and mini-
mize your contact with the
ground.
