Gulf County commissioners
passed a resolution during a spe-
cial meeting last Wednesday
evening supporting leaving
Highway 98 in .place along the
waterfront between Dixie 'Belle
Curve and St. Joe Beach.


This issue, to say the least,
has been hotly contested. since''
public hearings were held several
months ago as the first steps by
the St. Joe Company to study
realignment of Highway 98 In that
area. Ultimately, the company will


be making plans to develop its
holdings along the three-plus
miles of beachfront.
In this process, commission-
ers passed a resolution support-
ing the study. They have contend-
ed all along that the resolution in


Politicians from Gulf County and beyond crowded into the Beaches Volunteer Fire Department

no way took a position for removal
of Highway 98, but rather sup-
ported the company's effort to do
the study work.
After the new resolution was
passed last Wednesday, Commis-
sioner Warren Yeager said,
"Hopefully, this will clear up a lot
for the public." .
Basically, the new resolution
continues to support looking, at
the addition of a new back beach
road concept and the study, but it
also spells out the county's wish-
es for "beachfront" Highway 98 to
remain.
During discussion. Commis-
sioner Tommy Knox pointed out
that the current Highway 98 router
is nearing its maximum allowable
limit of traffic. He stated a second
road would be necessary to limit
congestion and meet the needs of
the county as it grows.


While the resolution supports
the addition of an alternate route
to U. S. Highway 98, it states the
board's desires to retain for pub-
lic use the existing U. S. Highway
98 as a means for ingress and
egress. The board's action. also
rescinded the previously passed
resolution.
Richard Brenner, of St. Joe
Beach, asked the board to consid-
er pinpointing the area being
addressed in the resolution, and
the board agreed to do so.
He also observed that the
final decision about the ultimate
fate of the road will be made by
the commissioners who sit on the
board when the final development
plans are being'looked at.

White City Water


Is Fine to Drink

Well Cross COnnect Likely Cause

Of Recent Elevated Bacteria Counts:


Gulf County's Chief Adminis-
trator Don Butler outlined a
series of events that have taken
place with the White City water
System over the past two weeks
as county personnel .have- '
.,. searched to discover the cause of
elevated-bacteria counts.
Butler' said the search began
on July 13th when the City of Port
-St. Joe notified them of higher
than normal bacterial counts dur-
ing routine testing. Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
was immediately notified of the
problem and the. system was
retested. Butler said the bacteria
was mnt fecal in nature (human or
animal orig-in), but was consistent
with samples taken from well
water.
The bacteria normally found
in household wells was not suffl-
cient enough to warrant a boll
notice being issued by the DEP. In
fact, they issued a,statement to'
that effect on the 18th of July..
In all, 12 tests were taken oni
the 1.4th, all of which were clear.
Approximately one week later, the
same bacteria. was found again
through Water tests.
Knowing the bacteria was
consistent with well water, the
county hired an expert in locating


cross connection problems to
assist in the search for water
intrusion.
in the meantime, a public
notice was published in The Star
concerning the issue.
-'.--'The water flow expert located
a cross connected residence off
Road 20 in White City. A resi-
dent's pump was connected on
the same system as White City's
Water Service feeding the home.
Butler said backflow preven-
tors ,are in place at every resi-
dence in White City, but the sys-
tems are not foolproof and under
some conditions can fail from
time to, time. The water to the
home was shut off-until the water
supplies were separated.
Required routine water tests
have been clean of bacterial prob-
lems since the cross connection
was discovered and: repaired.
Cross Connection
While in many cases well
water is safe to drink, 'it is not
compatible with enclosed public
water systems. Butler asked any
persons .who have wells connected
to their household water lines to
take action separating the two
water supplies.

County Rolls Back;


Holds Line On Taxes
s. i,,~eC..a xes'


Gulf County, commissioners
held.the line on taxes this year,
reducing village rates to 6.68:.
mills, while reaching the rollback
rate.
The board held its final bud-
get 'session. last Wednesday after.
whittling the budget to within just
a few thousand dollars of the roll-
back rate, then, finished the task
of reduction within just a few,
minutes. Last year's village rate.
was 7.0883.
One of the largest increases
in this year's budget will be the.
cost of health insurance. Gulf
County Clerk Benny, Lister said.
those, costs are expected to
increase 47.3%, or $242,000 of
the $754,000 budgeted.
Jail improvements and, reno-
vations are also big ticket areas in


the budget this year. A total of.
$208,000. Is. budgeted for this:
need as a new line item to the
budget. Solid waste will see ,a
38.9% increase in the budget at
$184,639 in additions.
The board has also budgeted.
some of the county's cash
reserves ($750,000) to help pay a
portion. of the paving project
under way in Gulf County.,
Even though the county com-
missioners held the line on ad val-
orem tax dollars, they were able to
raise the budget this year from
$14.55 million, to $16.42 million.
Much of the county's budget is
derived from grants, state road
funds, and other revenue sources
and fees. The board has also
tapped. into cash reserves to help
fund some major projects.


On August 2, the St. Joe,
Company- (NYSE: JOE)
announced that it would expand
H. Clay Smallwood's responsibili-
ties in Gulf County to include the,
coordination of all' corporate and

of Gulf County, will continue, in
his role as president- of St. Joe
Timberland in addition to his new
real estate duties.
"Clay Smallwood's promotion
is a clear indication of how impor-
tant Gulf County is to The St. Joe
Company," said Peter S. Rummell,
chairman and CEO St. Joe. "Clay

Let's Get To The Bottom


By Starting With The Head
It has really been interesting to watch the head of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC) as he tries to figure out how
to bring some respectability back to the group after fishermen discovered
more than just fishing files were illegally deleted from FFWCC hard drives.
As has been reported in hot only The Star, but by media across the'
state, several of those officials probably would not like their hard drives,
shown to "mama."
Executive Director Allen L. Egbert in a recent news release said he is
eager to put the computer misuse allegations behind, him and return,his
focus to the task of managing the living resources of Florida's complex -,
ecosystem.
Hogwash!! ,
Anyone who wants to see the number of deletions on Mr. Egbert's hard'
drive need only review a copy of the fishermen's affidavit. It's clear the
executive director broke the law just like many other of his understudies.
Maybe his site was not filled with pornography, but he is just as guilty as
Russell Nelson of removing items illegally from his hard drive in an effort
to evade the public records request.,
The fact that he did remove those records when his site wasn't filled
with porn even creates more suspicion as to why??? Egbert's computer
hard drive was almost totally wiped clean only days after the public infor-
mation request.
Russell Nelson's resignation looks equally suspicious like an orches-
trated event aimed at confusing the issue. Sure. Nelson had paid more
than one visit to pornographic sites ... he wasn't the only one though-if
that's the criteria for FFWVCC officials to be forced to resign. then Nelson
could be the first of several based on what I've see in the affidavits.
Pornographic material is far from the dirtiest part of this story though.
Another of Egbert's whims of wisdom really touched my heart when I
read it-"The people of Florida have entrusted the FWC with enormous
responsibilities, and I think that reflects the confidence they have in the
job we're doing." He continues. "We can't afford many more distractions If
we are to maintain the quality of the work this state has every right to
expect from us."
Investigations are under way to get to the bottom of what is going on
behind the screens of those FFWCC computers. It should be suggested to
investigators that they might be well served to start at the head, for where
the head leads the body will follow.
Maybe before this is over with, a new group of leaders within the
FFWCC will bring fair play based on scientific data back into their decision
making processes.

What's Your Home Phone Number?
The Florida Professional Firefighters aren't winning a lot of friends and
influencing people in and around this area. The group has made f(refight-
ing and emergency medical units within Gulf County mad because of their
misrepresentation while soliciting contributions.
Callers are saving that funds are being raised to support the local
organization only problem is they forgot to tell the local organizations
about all the money coming their way.
Don't you just love to get those calls? How do they know when you've
just gotten off work and are comfortable in parallel position number one
all leaned back in your recliner?
An officer with one of the local fire departments told me he received
one of these solicitations "Sir. I'm with FPF and we're raising funds to
assist your local fire department."
"Ma'am. I'm a member of that department and I'm not aware of any.
fund raiser agreement that we might have with your group". ....
"So sorry. I'll look into that." she said while fielding a multitude of
questions from the fireman she couldn't answer.
The only problem with this is that as soon as the fireman hung up the
phone, the caller was probably dialing someone else's number while think-
ing to herself. .. ". hope they're not on the fire department, too."
I personally think it's a good policy not to give money to anyone who's
making telephone solicitation. If indeed a professional organization wants
to make contact with me they can do it by some other means and at a time
other than my "off" time.
A good question to ask Is "Could you give me your home phone
number and tell me what time you get off work? Maybe I'll call you then,
and we can talk about this further."
Or what about the answer to the investment broker-"- tell you what.
the next time I'm in the mdod to turn my life savings over to a perfect
stranger I've only just met over the telephone. I promise you. I'll call you
first."
I could go on and on, but my advice to anyone wishing to give to any
of the worthy and needy causes In our area would be to go straight to the
organization. In so doing, they will receive 100% of the contribution and
you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're not supporting a "telephone
solicitor."

Daddy wasn't a whole lot bet-

mostly just drove. But every time
we'd come upon the Burma Shave
signs he'd "spy" something red or

Mother, bless her heart, hur-
ried to set the parameters about

"outside the car items" or "both"
before we settled it with our fists.
I'd try to find a yellow or green-

would scoot over right to the line

there wasn't an A in "Get Rigwt

We'd go for miles in .that game
before we could "get" the first let-

That would necessitate anoth-

never lasted as long as the first.
You ever'notice that? I don't know '

How To Separate Writer's Endorsement and Favoritism


TELEVISION. AND newspa-
pers are running into the
"Christmas", season as far as
advertising goes. Political candi-
dates are filling them up with
their 'announcements'.
I never thought the day
would come when I would even
consider complaining about too
much advertising. It's about
reached that point with TV
already. Networks are sending
out programs and depending on,
the stations to sell advertising to
support the program.
They don't do that with news-
papers. Newspapers do it on their
own. If they can sell the advertis-
ing, they get it. If they can't, they
don't. It's sort of a sink or swim
proposition. It works out very
well, though.. The viewers to tele-
vision gripe and complain if their
favorite program is interrupted
too many times with a "message
of support."
The newspaper message is
segregated, with the advertising
all in one place and the news'.

material in another. I imagine it
would be a nuisance to be read-
ing along and suddenly come to a
blank space headed up by the
.disclaimer, "We interrupt this
article to bring you this short
message of support."

THAT COULD GET sort of-
irritating if it went on too many'
times in the middle of an inter-,
esting article. But the fact that it
doesn't happen at all, offers you
reading- of a uninterrupted
nature.
Can you imagine, reading
along, right in the middle of a
humorous piece or trying to con-


centrate on the punch line of a ;
joke when the text 'pauses to
allow for a "message of commer-.
pial qualities."
But it's just recently that our
airways started getting cluttered i
with commercial messages. I say
"recently," because political mes-,
'sages first began to come over I
television around. 1956 or so.
'Even then, political messages
ere limited to candidates limit-
ing themselves to as few words as
possible, such as "My name. is so 1
and so. I am running for [office]
and will appreciate your vote". '

TV ADS WERE expensive


then; as were all TV ads. It was
necessary to stick to the basics.
They're not much cheaper, ,now,
but everybody feels 'they must
have their ads on TV. leaving
newspapers more space to
"arrange" for your reading attrac-
tion.
It used to be that politicians
had..to have some cards, as their
primary method of advertising.
First, candidates had just plain
cards with their name and
prospective office printed in plain
black .and white block letters.
Then, as it became cheaper
and, more legible to print pictures
more and more cards had the pic- .
ture of the candidate or the can-
didate and his family printed,
thereon. ..
Next, the ca rds began . carry pictures in. full color and
placards began to proliferate, all
in fancy design and colors.
I have. a book of early news-
papering and a main source of
advertising is political advertis-


ing. Small legal notices were com-
mon as were ads which depended
on their size and the size of the
type to attract attention.
. ,. The, attracting of attention
has' always beeri,, the object of.
rd-unning political, ads or commer-.
cial ads. :

POLITICIANS USED to ha4d
'out page after age of prlnied
material favorable to the candi-
date' and newspaper' editors
would scoop them up for use as
"press releases". .
A political candidate must
depend on paid advertisements
today to get his or her story
across and as a result, the "press
releases" are more gratuitous in
content. Thus, if you see a story
.favoring a particular candidate, it
was probably written by the can-
' didate discussed or, by a hired
writer.
Separating the "information"
pieces from the ones intended to
persuade voters sitting on the


fence is a trick of the campaign
workers. .

NEWSPAPERS ARE a little
more capable and their make-up
l' ~ds a little more to the separa-
tion of :strict newi~v material from
advertising. I may be biased, but
SI. think .the newspaper editors are
a little more capable of selecting
'the- diffeen'ce. than other media.
News magazines are fairly
capable 6f this type writing but
even they get "carried away" while
analyzing at times. -
There's one thing to consider
when you read a political article
favoring one candidate or anoth-
er; either the writer has "sold out"
to the favored 'candidate, or he
has his hand deep in the candi-
date's' pocket.' Either ,way, the
writer is expressing his druthers
and is writing for his own benefit.

PSJ Looking At


Future of WWTP


Port St. Joe city commission-
ers are beginning to take a long,
hard look at what the future
might hold for wastewater treat-
ment.
Philip Jones, of, Preble-Rish
Engineering, outlined for the
board the options of going .to a.
sprayfleld discharge rather than
discharging treated water into the
Gulf County Canal. This, is only
made possible with the closure of
the mill and subsequent drastic
reduction of incoming waste-
water. :
The City of Port St. Joe and
Arizona Chemical will be the two
remaining members of the tripar-
tite group. once Stone Container"
finalizes all of its clean-up opera-
tions at the idle mill.
The city's wastewater treat-
ment plant was designed to treat
up to 35 million gallons of waste-
water per day. But. with the clo-
sure of the mill and ultimate
phasing out of usage. that num-
ber will probably be reduced to
somewhere around one :million
gallons per day.
The city is hoping that future
sewer service expansion plans, by
the county to the beaches and
other areas of the county will help
feed the giant wastewater treat-
ment plant.
Jones was asked to bring
some cost estimate numbers back
to the board for consideration.
Leave Name As Is
Nathan Peters, Jr. ap-
proached the board requesting
that no change be made to Martin
Luther King, Jr. Boulevard,-
The board was addressed by
Amy Shackleford during its last
meeting requesting the road be.
renamed in honor of James "Hat"
McGee, Port St. Joe's first black
police officer.
Peters said this was not the
wishes of the people in the
community. Furthermore, he pre-
sented the board with a list of
names of residents and property
owners who support leaving the
road named as it is..
Shackleford said she also had
much support in favor of chang-
ing the name and she could bring
a petition to the board also.
The board took no action, but:
gave every indication of support-
ing the wishes of property owners
arid residents along the _roadway.:.
and :they: saw .no evidence sup- ;
porting changing the name.
Shackleford vowed to bring in a
petition of her own at the board's
next meeting.
In Other Business
*Discussed naming the 'new
sports complex after Jacob'
Chapman Belin, community pio-
neer and St. Joe Company execu-
tive who recently passed away.
Proposed by Commissioner David
Horton, the board will likely hold


a public meeting on the request
before deciding on a name.
*Decided to take immediate -
action in addressing roof prob-
lems at the Port St. 'Joe Fire'
Department.
.Agreed for' a committee to.
finalize a punch list of safety
issues before the North Port St.
Joe Youth Initiative occupies a
building at the city's old
Washington High School site.

fun and games. Florida's finest
leaders from all over the state
came together to share ideas,
make suggestions, and open their
hearts to new friendships. Anyone
who has been to a camp of any
kind will tell you, it is the people
who make it an unforgettable
experience.
The time at camp was spent
in team meetings, workshops, and
group sessions. In team meetings
tasks were assigned that took
phenomenal teamwork to com-
plete. Teams thought up. creative
skits to be performed in the group
session just 30 minutes away.
Exceptional speeches were written
at the drop of a hat and success-
ful; competitive campaigns were
masterminded in a matter of min-
utes. One of Port St. Joe High's
own proved her campaign to be
*most successful. After one of the
cleverest skits the camp has ever
seen and a humorous speech,
Maclain Howse was elected presi-
dent of FASC Leadership Camp.
During the workshops, the
campers were presented with new
-techniques of leadership and
innovative ways to implement
teamwork. The crew from PSJ
High paid special attention to the
methods. They are planning to
use the ideas in the new leader-
ship class at the high school.
Group sessions were actively
oriented. This is where the news-
paper bridges were built, the wall
of Character was constructed, and
*the singing refrigerators were
manufactured. It was also a time
for speeches, skits, and silly
r songs. There was serious time too.
The counselors took this opportu-
nity to share inspirational stories
and quotes with the camp.
With the theme being "carry
the torch of leadership," it just
would not have been right without
a camp olympics. Anything from
digging through slime to get the
:most marbles to getting a whole
team through a rope course (with-
out touching the ropes) was
i..ncluded. Human ladders were
made and the campers did their
best Tarzan swing in hopes of
landing in the hula-hoop three
yards away. Being in Florida, the
expected afternoon rainstorm
came and went. So yes, the games
.were played in the rain. .There's

Group Honors African/American Law Officers

The local chapter of the
Brothers and Sisters of the Sun.
hosted its annual 4th of July
event to pay special tribute to
individuals and organizations who
have made improvements and
promoted positive growth to the
North Port St. Joe community.
The theme "A Glimpse Into
The past-Gives Strength For The
Future," is a living legend of the
mep and women who gave
unselfishly of themselves to make
North Port St. Joe a better com-
murtity. During the 4th of July

Seniors find New Ave.

For Property Tax Relief
While politicians and home-
owners alike clamor to identify
*) ways in which the issue of prop-
erty. taxes can be resolved, many
homeowners have discovered the
only solution they will ever need.
Tlhe solution comes in the form of
the FHA program for reverse
mortgages. The program allows
homeowners 62 years of age and
older with little or no mortgage
remain ing to drjw tax-free income
from their home equity without
rqquiring repayment for as long as
they occupy the home.
Unfortunately the program
can't do anything to lower the
aiount of property taxes which a
participant will pay. What it can
deo.however, is provide the neces-.
sary funds to pay the taxes when
they are due. In most cases the
participant can do this by estab-
lishing a "line of credit" which will
be' available to pay the property
takes. This completely eliminates
the need for homeowners to make
monthly installment payments
toward their property taxes.
This "line of credit" is very
similar to a "home equity line of
credit" which one might get at a
bank with two notable exceptions.
U like a bank line of credit, an
individual can draw as much as
they wish from the line up to their
predetermined limit and never
make a monthly payment on the
account. The second difference is
tMat the reverse mortgage line of
credit will actually increase in
vaue by about seven percent per
*~ 'ipr. As long as a participant has
an available line of credit, the
account will continue to grow.
By providing the homeowner
with another source of income
which they can use to satisfy their
property tax requirements, partic-
ipants are able to use their fixed
income for living expenses and do
no$t have to worry about setting
aside money every month to meet
tie property tax needs. This
translates into extra-income to
use for the purpose of living..
SAlthough this program has
been very popular nationally,
many eligible participants still do
not realize that this alternati e is.
available to them. The majority of
those who are seeking this pro-
gram so far have indicated that
paying property taxes each year is
ai:major consideration in their
decision to look into the program.
Seniors often wornr that the
expenses of homeownership will
force them to lower their standard
of living. This is the choice that
,most older homeowners simply do
iiot want to make. With' the
reverse mortgage program the
participants are able to rhake
their property tax payments with-
out having to use their fixed
income resources. Check with
your local lenders to see if this is
an option for you.

and present civic organizations
and to educate our young people
of their rich arid significant
history. Robert Bryant made gra-
cious comments, with acknowl-
edging B.H. Ham as their leader,
of the first police auxiliary unit to
restore social order to North Port
St. Joe community.
The: highlight of this memo-
rable event -was the dedication of
the new North Port St. Joe Law
Enforcement Substation building
in honor of the African-Americans
who served the North Port St. Joe
and- the Port St., Joe community
as police officers., and sheriffs
,deputies.
Deputy 'Sergeant Mark, Cutler
accepted the dedication plaque on
behalf of the Gulf County Sheriffs
Department, which was presented
to him by C.L. Ash, president of
the Brothers and Sisters of the
Sun Chapter.
The purpose for the dedica-
tion of the substation building is
twofold. First, to call attention of
the American people to the exis-
tence of distinguished merit and
achievement among Americans of
African descent; and secondly, to
serve as a reward .for such
achievement and as a stimulus to
the ambition of youth of African
descent.
The, local chapter sends a
message, "as .we move into the
millennium, we are challenging
other civic, religious, social
groups,. to be a part of the move-
ment by helping us eliminate vio-
lence on the streets, of the North
Port St. Joe community." The
local chapter asks that you share
in this dedication to up lift and
enrich the lives of the youth by
keeping the spirits of their her-
itage alive.
At the memorable service, the
audience expressed favor to the
dedication of the building and to
the resolution announced to
name James "Hat" McGee, Sr.'
Street in place of Martin Luther
King. Jr. Boulevard because it
prompts a plan-of-strategy neces-
sary for the street name to be

I am writing to ask for your support-on September 5th as I seek the office of the Clerk of the Circuit
Court. This' office is a complex organization that performs over 900 tasks, including record keep-
ing, information management, and financial management. The Clerk serves as the "public trustee"
for the public records. And, the Clerk serves as the Chief Financial Officer for the county.

The Clerk of the Circuit Court must be knowledgeable, versed, and prepared for the county level
of government. As your County Commissioner since 1996, 1 have a thorough understanding of
local government. And, I understand state government.

Equally significant, I have always worked for the people. This required flexibility, tenacity, and per-
severance. I believe that my character depicts a man who cares .about people; a man who believes
strongly in doing the right thing; and, a man who is truly a Public servant with no hidden agendas

As a retired US. Army officer and, the Executive Director of a transportation company, I am very.
comfortable supervising employees, preparing million dollar budgets, critiquing annual audits, writ-
ing local, state and federal grants, speaking before large audiences, and restoring your trust in local
go ernment. I believe strongly that the office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court an office of the
highest trust. I posed two rhetorical questions, in the previous months: 1)'Who do 'you trust with
our public records? and.2) Who do you trust % ith our public monies?

I offered these questions because we have become quite cynical and distrustful of all forms .of gov-
ernment, not just local government' Some of the reasons include: declining public trust, poor lead-
ership, special agendas, partisan politics' and wasteful government practices.

Government should work better and cost less. I believe all elected officials should be accessible to
the public, and should listen carefully to the concerns. I believe that all elected officials should be
accountable for both their actions and our dollars. I believe that character is what really counts in
life and in government.

With over 29 years supervisory and leadership experiences, I want to be your change agent. I ask
that you take a few minutes to carefully evaluate my education, leadership skills, and abilities to
manage multiple projects and tasks. Take a few minutes to evaluate the other candidates. Then, on
September 5th you will vote for the best-qualified and most capable candidate.

I have served you with honor, integrity, and dignity. I ask for your vote of confidence for Clerk of
the Circuit Court. Your vote for Johnny Stanley will be a vote for a public servant that believes in
restoring the public trust in government. You have my word.

Change begins with you. Call anytime at 639-5107, or e-mail me at johnbarb@digitalexp.com.
Thank you!

Gulf Coast Electric Adds Potable Water To Its Service


Those residents of the
Southport community who have
completed a user agreement and
have a water meter installed may
now connect and enjoy a public
drinking water system, as yet
another service provided by their
electric supplier Gulf Coast
Electric Cooperative.
After several surveys, commu-
nity meetings and several months
of design and construction, the
Cooperative now has a state-of-
the-art water system in place,
serving approximately 750 homes
and businesses in the community
of Southport. In the past, resi-
dents have relied solely upon indi-
vidual wells for meeting their
water consumption needs. As a
whole, these wells tend to have
high sulfur and iron deposits
causing residents to rely on other
companies to filter their water.
Gulf -Coast Electric Cooperative
decided to construct and maintain
a $3 million estimated potable
water system after consulting

with USDA Rural Development
about the rural water program.
The project was funded 60% by
grant and 40% by low interest
loan through USDA Rural
Development.
"By providing our members
with these types of services.
GCEC is able to help the commu-
nity and county meet future infra-
structure demands by the public.
Recently, residents were able to,
turn on their water faucets for the
first time and have an abundant,
dependable and quality water
source," said Michael White, man-
ager of marketing and member
services.
The new system consists of
more than 25 miles of distribution
lines, including a 200,000-gallon
ground storage tank with on-site
water treatment facility. A local
engineering firm, Preble-Rish, Inc.
Consulting Engineers, was
responsible for the design, layout
and inspection of the system.
"This system is state-of-the-
art with variable frequency drive
pump capabilities to ,Its touch-
read-meter technology. Overall,
the system has all of the extended
features available to a potable
water system, to-date,." stated
Chris Forehand, project engineer.
"The water system, in general,
was a perfect fit for the
Cooperative. As an existing utility,
Gulf Coast has the management,
engineering, mapping, billing and
service departments already in
place to provide this service at
quality standards. All water cus-
tomers will receive their monthly
water bill as a bundled item on
their electric statement. Each ser-
vice will have a separate line item
to show the gallons of water con-
sumed, as well as their current
KWH used. Bundling these ser-.
vice- into one statement will allow
the cooperative to minimize
administrative costs," stated Roy

Daniel Marshall
Special Thanks,
There are no words to ade-
quately express how grateful we
are to our Gulf County family and
friends for all of the support you'
have given to us during the recent
illness and death of our beloved
Mildred Tillman Musselwhite.
There have been so many people
who have prayed in her behalf.
Cards, letters, and notes were
sent with uplifting thoughts and
get-well messages, as well as tele-
phone and e-mail messages
inquiring about her well-being,
visits, food, and so many. many
other acts of kindness too numer-
ous to name. These expressions of
love and concern helped her get
through each day as she really
looked forward to hearing from all
of you. ,
There are so many people we
-would like to thank individually
but the list has been so long until
we were afraid we may have
missed someone, with a card of.
thanks or a telephone message.
We would like to take this oppor-
tunity to express "A fiom the bot-
tom of our hearts, thank you, to
each one of you who displayed one
act of kindness or another."
The Family of Mildred Tillman
Musselwhite :


May 18,1944 July 11, 2000
Have you come to the Red Sea of your
life, Where; in spite of all you can do,
There is no way out, there is no way
back, There is no other way out but
,through? Then wait on the Lord with a
trust serene till the night of your fear is
gone; He will send the wind. He will
Sheap the flood, When He says
to your soul, "Go on.".
And his hand will lead you through-
clear through-Ere. the watery walls
roll down, No foe can reach you, no
wave can touch, No mightiest sea can
drown; The tossing billows may rear
their crest, Their foam at your feet may
break, But over their bed you shall
walk dry sod in the path
your Lord will make.
In the morning watch, neathh the lifted
cloud, You shall see but the Lord
alone, When He leads you on from
the place of the sea; To a land that
you have not known; And your fears
shall pass as your foes have passed,
You shall be no more afraid; You shall
sing His praise in a better place, A
place that His hand has made," .

He'll Set You Free
Can I start over again?
Is there any hope for me?
These questions have been asked
down through history.,
I'm not good enough, god doesn't
want the likes of me.
That's another of satan's lies,
just ask forgiveness and see.
The promise of Jesus endures.
Your salvation He ensures.
If you want to be set
spiritually free.
Ask forgiveness on bended knee.
He'll clean up your life
and set you free.
I know fora fact, because
He did it for me.

Last month I saw a picture of
two fish that .were found in a
canal in Canada. Their jaws
were locked together after a
fight to the death.
That's how many a friendship
ends in a deadlock!
It's good to practice mouth-to-
mouth resuscitation, but it's not
good to practice mouth-to-
mouth mortification
The Bible says, "A fool gets
into constant fights. His mouth is
his undoing! His words endan-
ger him."
So let's pray with the Psalm-
ist, "Help me, Lord, to keep my
mouth shut and my lips sealed."

Memorial Service
Memorial Services for Andy
Martin will be held Friday, August
4th at 11:00 a.m. at Long Avenue
Baptist Church. All friends and
relatives are invited to go and cel-
ebrate his life.

From the Principal of

Wewahitchka

High School Blb
by Dr. Bill Truby


The custodial, cleaning, and
maintenance crews, as well as the
office staff and administration,
have toiled long and hard this
summer in preparation for the
return of our students on August
10th. We are anticipating a great
year in every way possible. Here
are a few items that may help in
getting ready for school year
2000-20011
On August 8th at 6:30 p.m.,
we will be having an open,
house/orientation for seventh and
eighth graders and their parents
in the classrooms. At the same
time we would like to meet with
ninth grade parents as well as any
new parents to WHS in the Com-
*mons. We hope to provide every-
one with a helpful start by provid-
ing information that will be of
benefit now and years down the
road.
We are welcoming several new
teachers this year due to an
increase in staff as well as the
need to replace some departures.
So far, we have added Mrs. Shel-
ley Hill, Mrs. Angela Dodson, Mr.
Alex Adams, Mr. Thorton DAvis
and Mr. John Kramer. We are
excited about their' arrival and
look forward to some great things
for our students in the classroom
and the athletic field.
There will be one new and sig-
nificant change for the entire
school this year. In an effort to
minimize departure concerns, we,
will be dismissing the buses
before allowing pedestrian or
vehicular traffic to depart. This
will be a minor change but a big
step forward in promoting the
safety of our students.
If you haven't seen our new
gym floor, it is absolutely beauti-
ful and functional. We are going to
be showing it off next Friday
night, August 11th, at a sock hop
that will begin at 7:30 and end at
10:30. Tickets will be sold at the
door for $5.00. Proceeds will go to
support the cultural events at
WHS.
'Student schedules will be


passed out in the following man-
ner: seventh and eighth graders
and their parents will get theirs at
the open house/orientation on
August 8th. High schoolers and
anyone not at the junior high ori-
entation will receive their sched-
ules on the first day of school in
Tap (i.e. homeroom). Parents
should be on the lookout for the
numerous pieces of paper that
-will be sent home that first day of
School, many of which will require
your signature. We do have an
opening assembly before TAP to
which parents and community
members are also invited. It will
begin at 7:53 and last approxi-
mately 30-40 minutes.
If students need to change
their schedules, forms will be
available in the office on the front
counter. Requests for changes
must be submitted by August
11th.
On August 4th from 8:00-
12:00, free physical will be
administered in the gym area. Any
student, not just athletes, can.
take advantage of this great
opportunity.
Florida High School, our
internet high school, still has
openings in some of its classes.
Check with the guidance office if
you would like to pursue this way
of learning. It can be done at
home if you have internet capabil-
ities.
As always, we are looking for
volunteers. Our volunteers in
partnership program began last
year, and we want to improve upon
it this year. If you would like to
help us, even for an hour or two,
please contact us. We need youl'
One great way for parents and
community members to get
involved is to join the school advi-
sory council. This group of people
helps to form direction for the
school. Andit is a great way to get
inside information about the pro-
grams and challenges of WHS.
Again, contact the office if you are
interested or want more informa-
tion.


We have been discussing the
dual enrollment program with
Gulf Coast Community College
and feel that there are some neat
things on the horizon. One impor-
tant possibility is a vocational
dual enrollment. In this program,
students can take wiring, electric-
ity, welding, or plumbing and gain
credits. We'll keep you posted.
Much of this information-
and a little more-is contained in
a letter we are sending home to
parents. If you have had a change
of address or for some reason
have not received previous mail-
ings, (this will be our third) please
notify us immediately. We need to
get this material in your hands.
In case we missed it with all
that is going on, school does begin'
on August 10th at 7:49 a.m.
Have a great last few days.
Take advantage of the tax-free
shopping days, and we'll see you
on August 10th.

PSJMS Orientation
Port St. Joe Middle School will
have an orientation for all sixth
grade students and parents, as
well as all new seventh and eighth
grade students and parents. The
orientation will be Monday,
August 7, from 9:00 to 11:15 a.m.
Students and parents should
report to the commons area at, the
school. Transportation will be
provided for bus students. If you
have any questions concerning
bus routes, please call 227-1204.
This orientation will give stu-
dents and parents a chance to
meet their teachers, walk through
their schedules, and have ques-
tions and concerns answered.
Students who attended Port
St. Joe Middle School last year
will get their schedules on the first
day of school, August 10. '
Port St. Joe Middle School will
continue the same policy as last
year concerning back packs. Stu-
dents may use any type back
pack, but they must be placed in
their locker when they arrive at
school. .
The faculty and staff at Port
St. Joe Middle School look for-
.ward to meeting their new middle
schoolers on August 7 and seeing
all students on Thursday, August
10. If you have any questions con-
cerning this orientation, call
Juanise Williams at 227-3211..


Celebration

Education."
Family involvement is essen-
tial to students' academic suc-
cess. The "First Day of School
Celebration" makes it easier for
parents to become involved in
their children's education, com-
municate with their children's
teachers, and demonstrate their
commitment to their children's


WES is gearing up for yet
another wonderful year. Parents
and teachers eagerly await the
first day of classes on Thursday,
August 10th, and while the stu-
dents may seem initially reluc-
tant, they too will arrive with the
enthusiasm found in .,renewing
friendships with classmates.
WES has been busily prepar-
ing for the start of the new school
year. A portable classroom has
been added to the campus.
Renovation of the existing porta-
bles has permitted the construc-
tion of a second computer lab for
intermediate students. Fresh
paint, waxed floors; and spruced
up classrooms create a sense of
new beginning and excitement.
WES was very proud of earn-
ing a "B" on its annual report
card. This was the result of con-
certed effort to raise test scores.
We'll be shooting for an "A" this
year and are confident that we
will meet our goal with the essen-
tial support from parents and
community.
Class rosters and supply lists
will be posted on the windows of
the WES main office on Monday
afternoon. Parents and students
are invited to come by and take a
look at them.
Teachers will be attending
inservice classes on Tuesday 'and
Wednesday, but will be meeting
students at the classroom doors
on Thursday, August 10th. Join
us in greeting the new school year
with enthusiasm and eagerness.
Support and success go band-in-
hand.
The school day will run from
7:55 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. (CT).
