Another school year is rapidly
approaching and the administra-
. ion, faculty and staff at Port St.
Joe High School are expecting
another great year. Last year, the

dramatic improvements on the

Florida region in terms of acade-:
mic achievement.


states upstream from Florida, and
an already critical water flow
could get even worse.
Julian Andersonr, overseer at
Howard Creek's lower landing
said he has been on the river all of
his 76 years. He recollected it
seems that in the 30's the river
got as low as ,It isnow. But. he
focused the,blame for much of the
current problem on manmader
controls-not on .nature's way.
The prospects that the river's
flow could even go lower doesn't
settle well with anyone along the
path of the Apalachlcola or adja-
cent riverways. Most businesses
whose livelihood .revolves around
the draw,of the waterway are well
into their secondyear of drought-
like, conditions;and ,'are having
problems, dealing, with those
effects.


Water levels are so low at the
Dead Lakes that a boat can't be
launched at fish camps, public or
private landings anywhere along
the lakes.
"Oh, my goodness, I didn't
think it could get any lower," said
Barbara Hasty, when she heard
the river's flow could be cut back
even further. She and .her hus-
band, Joe, own and operate Sign
of the Shiner and Shiner Diner,
just north of Wewahitchka, and
along what was the edge of the

1/2 Sales Tax Referendum Will Be On Ballot


nests have been hatched and nine
of 21 have been documented as
being disoriented because of arti-
ficial lighting.
She said two of the incidents
were deemed to be caused by util-
ity lights and seven were a result
of exterior or interior lighting from
rental houses in the area.
Turtle patrol members picked
up most ofthe disoriented hatch-
lings and placed them in the gulf
when the event was discovered,
she added.
Erosion and Beach Driving
Indian Pass
Indian Pass resident Stan
Kleski approached the board


"Unless something is done to;
stabilize this situation, the prob-
lem will continue," he told those
present.
Commissioner Warren Yeager
thanked those present for shar-
ing, and reminded them of the
constant battle to keep the beach
open to vehicular traffic.
The board took no action to'
further regulate beach driving in
the area.

"Erosion Is Not Caused


ByBeach Taffic,"f Bell


requesting the county to tighten
up enforcement and barriers
along a three block: area of the
beachfront where erosion has ,,
drawn concern.
IHis .request opened up a
lengthy discussion from Indian
Pass area residents overwhelm-
ingly supporting leaving the area
open to vehicular traffic and doc-
umented their case that beach
driving did not adversely impact
erosion on the beach.
Before the residents finished,
they even challenged the
Department of Environmental
Protection representative, present
for the lighting ordinance hearing,
to, counter their arguments.
David Bell came armed with
aerial pictures and a few old pho-
tographs to show what has
occurred over the years in the2
area, "Erosion is not caused by
beach traffic; if it was, Daytona
would have been out of business a
long time ago," he said in summa-
rizing his argument.
Several of the residents point-
ed to the public boat landing at
the end of Indian Pass Road as
being one of the major problems.
Jimmy McNeill noted that once
the ramp was built, he lost 150' of
his property on the lefthand side
of the ramp and the same erosion
problem is happening on the
other side.

ballot for voter consideration.,
The board has discussed the
tax option over the past few
months as 'a method to finance'
needs at all nine fire departments
in the county. Funds could only
be used for fire department equip-
ment and infrastructure projects.
The 1/24 sales tax increase
,for this purpose will only.go into
effect if voters pass the referen-
dum appearing on the November

spent most of Tuesday's regular

'sensitive" issues concerning
Cape San Bias and Indian Pass.
Beach Lighting Ordinance
The board held a public hear-
ing on a proposed beach lighting
ordinance that would regulate
lighting along the beach area of
the St. Joseph ; Bay Aquatic
Preserve.
Comminissioner Warren Yeager
started discussions by advising
the board that he had received
several letters and calls concetn-
ing the proposed ordinance.
including contact from the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service.
He reminded the board of a
workshop between the regulating
parties, the county, and members
of the public that wished to
attend. That meeting Is scheduled
for Monday, August 14th, at 4:00
p.m., E.T., in the commission
meeting room.
Yeager asked the board mem-
bers to wait until after that public
meeting Is held before they make
a final decision on the turtle ordi-
nance. The board agreed to the
request.
Mike McDonald, of, Florida
PomWer Corporation, spoke to the
board voicing concerns about
some of the lighting requests. He
said the company would have two
experts in the field at the meeting
to discuss some of those require-
ments.
"Let's get something we can
all support.. At present we can't
support this," McDonald said.
Tammy Summers, St. Joseph
Bay Aquatic Preserve overseer,
urged the board to continue their
consideration of the ordinance .
"I think we're close," she said,
speaking of the one and one-half
years the groups have been work-
ing on the proposal.
Commissioner, Tommy Knox
said it had come to his attention
that there was interest in extend-
ing the ordinance to also include
St. Joe Beach and that would
require further evaluation.
During a conversation after
the meeting, Summers stated that
144 nests have been documented
by the beach turtle patrol thus far
this year. Of that number, 21

The Star

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, AUGUST 10, 2000


Editorial Commentary Columns Written by Willie Ramsey, Editor


Case of Mistaken "Stars" A

I Wonder If They Ever Get Our Calls
Several times In recent years our "Star", which is "The Star"
newspaper has been confused with that other "Star"-the tabloid!
Some of those correspondences and phone calls have been
most interesting. One evening I received a phone call from a hys- I
terical fan who claimed her favorite rock star [he wasn't my
favorite, so I don't remember ils name] had just gotten engaged.
She gave me all the details and hung up before giving me the
opportunity to explain her mistaken identity. Two days later, sure
enough, I saw in the paper where this rock star was engaged ...
Most times, we have the chance to explain to the caller that Dc
they have the wrong "star" and this "star" is a weekly paper in Yc
Florida. .etc. M
A few weeks ago, I got the best call yet! This film producer th
wanted to use "The Star" in a movie he was making. alo
To say the least, I was somewhat flattered to have thought G,
someone wanted to use our paper in a movie. This was great-we C
finally made the big time! M
In my most professional voice, "Sounds like a good idea, but I
would need to see an overview of the script, and particularly, the
role our paper would play before making a commitment."
"Sure, I totally understand and will get it out to you today,"
said the producer.
When I saw the name of the company on the fax cover sheet .
. I knew it was another case of mistaken identity. These folks
definitely had the wrong "star."
I won't say much about the movie's plot, but, I don't think
Mama would approve. The producer was only temporarily disap-
pointed when I told him of his mistake. He quickly apologized and
went in search of another "star."
As I hung up the phone, my thoughts were I wonder how
many calls that other "Star" gets that are meant for us .


If We Could Choose OurMedicines
Drought conditions are having a serious impact on the
Apalachicola River and Dead Lakes in Gulf County-and it
appears things could get worse before they get much, much bet-
ter, unless mother nature gives us and folks up the country a
heaping helping of HiO2.
I don't mind telling you I'm a little leery of any proposals or
solutions that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers might have in
mind. Their track record for winning friends and influencing peo-
ple by making sound decisions on -the management of the river'
has several pretty big bumps on it.
I haven't tried it, but I hear from some reliable sources there
are places a man can just about wade across the river. We made
some pictures at some of the landings adjacent to the Dead Lakes
this week and there is no water to be found anywhere near those
boat launching sites.
In fact, it looks kind of eerie to see dry land where there used
to be water and boats coupledwith a flurry of activity. -
We obviously are not the only ones in need of more water.
Reservoirs along the Chattahoochee and Flint Rivers, which make
up the Apalachicola, are very low. They need water too, and they
have the "one up" on us because the water passes through their
reservoirs long before it gets to us.
The Corps of Engineers thinks it has the perfect answer-
whack another 20% off the acceptable flow amounts.
This situation gets even more complicated when we take into
account all the ecological damage that could be caused as salt
water begins to back up into the bays and riverways.
Oysters, vegetation, trees, endangered species, and freshwa-
ter creatures could all take a major hit if river levels fall much, or
any further.
What a stark contrast all of this is from a few years ago when
this area was included within the boundaries of a disaster area
decree because of record flood levels.
I was talking with someone the other day who probably does.
not want to publicly be credited with this statement-"What we
need is a good hurricane!"
Careful what you ask for-but, we may be better off placing
our confidence in a hurricane or tropical 'storm than what comes
out of a special meeting between the Corps of Engineers and the '
states involved in these water wars.

I'm Going To Follow Up On Some Of Kes Stories and See lf They're True

I WAS LEAVING the office
last week, when Willie casually
asked, "Well, Pop, have you final-
ly finished your column?"
I replied. "Finally! But riot
before I sweated blood. This was'
one of those I could never come
up with a. subject. I guess my
memory bank is running out of
water.
That happens every so often.
More often than not. lately._,
I could write a 'column with
more wit than wisdom if I didn't
have anybody checking behind
me, or remembering the actual
subjects I was writing about.
Take my favorite writer, for
instance. It seemed as if Mike
Royko, of the Chicago Sun could
come up with a column every
day. Mike is dead now, but as
long as he was writing he could
spit,them out.
All he had to do was get
arrested for being a little tipsy
and he had his column.


I'M NOT GOING' to go that
far, but I can question the verac-
itv ,of our own columnist who
writes for this marvelous news-
,paper.
I could question the truth of
some of his tales. I grew up in a
small town also, and had any
number of playmates arid hang-
outs in and around the woods.
The only thing wrong was the
ponds near my house were near-
ly always dry and- the ice nearly
non-existent. It sleeted more
than it snowed, and the, only
black walnut trees that grew
near my home grew in the
woods, .not in 'some old'- widow's


yard where I could earn the
princely sum of 10t a bushel to
pick up the nuts.
I did earn 50c per hundred
to pick Lew Ferris' cotton. The
rocks and clods were extra.
I. had my own buddies I hung
out out with and explored the
woods with. We knew where the
largest number of tarantulas
lived. We knew which oil well cir-
culating tank was the largest
and deepest. for good ,,swimming.
We had our own secrets.'

AND, WE HAD OUR pick-up
baseball league. After all, I did
come from Mickey Mantle coun-


try. I just never dreamed I would
be writing for a newspaper some
day, so I never attempted to
remember names.
Except one!
Royal Vanetta was about my
age and he had everything to
play baseball with. He had a gen-
uine baseball, not one of your
taped up cottonseed imitations
which needed attention the first
time it was hit with- a bat. -
I'll bet old Kes never had to
play with an old cottonseed
baseball. The bats we would use
would be nailed back together.
where the, big boys had broken
them.
Royal could play any position
and play it errorless.
Our players didn't live out on
the farm, they lived out on the oil
lease. Baseball days would see
them traipsing into town for a
game or two or three.

I'M SORT OF suspicious of
some of Kes' memories. Kids who


grew up where I did, didn't have
uniforms to play in, nor fields *to
play on:. The fields were just ones'
we had chased the cows off of so
we could use them.
If a fly ball hit in the wrong
spot out in the field, it was a
homer, even if it was just a single
by the distance it travelled. It all
accorded to where the ball land-
ed, or what it landed in.
Seldom, did we take time to
clean off a field to play on.
Old Kes talks about getting
down and dirty to play baseball
and how that was the best and
purest way to play.
If you wanted to play bad
enough, anyplace would do.

I'M RETIRED, NOW with
plenty of free time on my hands.
I think I'll spend a part of that
time by travelling to McKenzie,
Tennessee just to check out Kes'
strange settings and characters.
Some of them might be more
than the imagination could con-


jure up.
The girls seem too pretty and
the, boy too mischievous, to be,
real,,at times. '
I know Leon and David are 0
actual characters especially
Ledo!
M'4y "daughter .has a ca ?j
narnd: Leon. The. difference.
betvweeni'the. two Leons is u.ncan-
ny.
Le6n Colbert 'is' an
optometrist with an office In
Nashville., He, furnishes" room
and board for Kes' boys who are
off to school.
I'll back Kes' up on his
description of Leon. I, don't know
about the adolescent Leon, but
the adult Leon is every bit as
crazy as Kes!

I'VE GOTTEN THROUGH
this column without a subject
and did it on time. Next week I'll
try writing one about my one trip
to Grandmother's farm, riding in
a school bus!

camps or tackle and supply shops
has already closed its doors. Most
all of them have voiced concerns
about dramatic drops in busi-


ness.
"Our business has decreased
by about 40% since last year,"
said Allen Howard, owner of the


From Page 1
Howard Creek Country Mart.
Another interesting theory, by
Julian Anderson, was that salt
water intrusion could create: a
dramatic change in the ecosystem
along the riverway, especially on
the lower end of the river's path.


"I heard they caught .some
sheepshead up around Brown's
.Lake (above Wewahitchka),"
Anderson stated as he supported
Shis concerns.
.. He explained that some salt-
water species have always migrat-
ed through the brackish water at
and around Howard Creek, but
there seems to be more than ever
now and a wider range of species.


Shellfish, such as oysters, are
another major concern. With
water levels possibly going even
lower, this changes the salinity of
the water In Apalachicola Bay
which in turn allows stone crabs
and conchs to enter the beds and
feast on the oysters. This change
in the ecosystem has the potential
to dramatically affect the number
of oysters available for humans to
harvest.
As pointed out in the
Democrat's article, the sensitive
balance of the ecosystem could be


harmed, both along the
Apalachicola waterway and at its
exit points into the Gulf of Mexico,
if water levels continue to plunge
or if *the flow down the
Apalachicola is further reduced to
fill reservoirs upstream.
The U.S. Corps of Engineers
is suggesting reducing the mini- :
mum water level .by an additional
20% if the drought continues. The
corps has a meeting scheduled for
August 15th in Columbus,
Georgia to discuss its water flow
proposal.


No water to be found near the Dead Lakes Sportsman's Lodge
(above). A trickle still remains at Dead Lakes State. Park (below).


Julian Anderson has 76 years of river wisdom under his belt.

Good-bye Granny
L9rd, we know heaven .
is expanding.
It's got to be growing each day.
It seems this way to me because
you're taking the best away.
You've taken real good ones lately,
but Granny was the cream of the
crop.
Lord, she sure did love you,
she could "talk-abbut you nonstop.
Of course, she could talk about mosl
anything like kids, grandkids, or
greats but before she finished, any-
one could tell who really rates.
'She had a green thumb, -
she could grow most anything.
I'll think of her when I pass her gar
den, and see her little swing.
She liked a fresh mullet, and a.fewl
white roe too.
If there's a mullet in that crystal
river, Big Gene will give her a few.
Granny's life should show us all, how
someone so short
could be so tall.
She did more with what God gave 4
her, than most will'ever do.
I've been blessed by knowing Granny
Parker, if you know her, you have too.
If Granny could talk to her family
and all, I know she'd not refrain,
To tell each one to get right with
Jesus, so they could see her
once again.
I'll see Granny again and I hope yoI
will too.
Granny, I'll say "Good-bye" for now. I
hope this pleases you. '

Drive With Caution;

On July 2, 2000, the Lord
called home my dear
Grandmother, VeSra Burge. She
was a big part of our family. She
was and still is greatly loved and
will be sadly missed. She wrote
this piece for my Grandfather,
and I have rewritten it for her.
God needed her more han I.
I leaned upon her shoulder, tis true
I counted on her judgement like most
grandchildren do
When burdeniweregreat, to her I'd cry,'
But it seems God needed her more than I
I would to her take my woes, would often
confide to her myfoes
Would tell my griefs and joys of the day
And now He's taken her to His home.
Vera Burge, I Love, willnever more roam
Her pain is gone, she's found relief
This surely makes up for my grief
For in God all men must die
And I surely know,
God needed her more than I. -' r"

Enjoyed Story
Dear Ms. Summers:
Your most interesting article
on the Port Theater of yesteryear
caught my eye. I should like to
add a "tid bit' to the story.:
Before the Port, Martin Thy
aters operated an "Open Air" LThe
ater on 3rd Street. I remember,
distinctly seeing the big broadcast'
'of 1937 in that airy old place. It
had wooden benches and the peob-
ple from all over flocked to it. At'
one time,. there was this talent"
night in which all of the youths ol
St. Joe participated. One froze in
. the winter and slapped mosqui-
toes in the summer. This was the
first Martin Theater in St. Joe, but
the third theater which St. Joe
ever had. Yes, there were, two1
which preceded it. More about
those next time. "
Sometimes, after the 'Prt
opened, some entrepreneurs came
in St. joe advertising they were
from, Hollywood. Every mom
flocked to the chance to see their
little darlings on the silver screen
and so happily paid the $25.00, to,
get their kids in the film. Heroine
of the film was Betty Jo Lane (now
McNeill), and I don't think I shall
ever forget young (now late)
Ernest Smith with that bow tie in
the production. A lot of it was
filmed in the city park (now the
Frank Pate park) and even one
scene was taken at my home on
Monument' Avenue. That was a
long time ago plus I don't think
any of us made it to "Hollywood."
I wonder if that old film was still
up in the projection booth to this
day?
As you pointed out, when the
Port opened it was the gathering
place for all the youth of the city.
-I remember one day in the early
days when "A Yank At Oxford"

Card of Thanks
The family of Gene Raffield
would like to thank everyone for
the outpouring of 'love and cori-
cern during his recent illness and
death. We can never express how,
grateful we are for all the cards,
* visits, flowers, meals, and prayers
that Gene received during his ill-
ness. All of these meant so much
to hin.
Gene had a deep love for Gulf
County and our community cer-
tainly returned that love. We can't
begin to tell everyone how much
the various presentations to Gene
Meant to all of us this past year.
The game dedication at the
annual Wewa/St. Joe football
game, the Chamber of
Commerce's presentation as well
as all the others have been so spe-
cial.


The awesome attendance at
his visitation and funeral proved
to us once again what a special
county we live in. We would also
like to give a very special thanks
to those responsible for flying the
flag at half-mast at the court-
house and the great sign in front,
of the high school that was. so,
dear to him.
We would like to send a spe-
cial thanks to Dr. Tom Curry for
being such a caring doctor. He-is.
truly an asset, to our community.
Also, thank you to Southerland
Funeral Home for making a difff-
cult task bearable. We would be
remiss if we didn't thank The Star
and the Gulf County Breeze for the
wonderful and uplifting articld
that have been written this past
year.
Finally, we would like to giv' ai
heartfelt thanks to Brother Dave,
Fernandez, Brother John Atkins,
and Brother Brent Vickery for
your many visits and the wonder-
ful service you provided. To Walter
Wilder and Bob Jones-we can't
ever 'express how special you
made Gene's service. We know it
was difficult, but both of you rose
to the occasion. Once again,
THANKS GULF COUNTY, for your
love, support, and your celebra-
tionr of Gene's life'
The Raffield Family
For the deal of your life,
see me!

starring Robert Taylor was being
shown, when all of a sudden,
there was a flash of flame on the
screen and the film burned up. To
this day, I never did learn how
that story turned out. But no kid
in his right mind ever missed a
Saturday together with a double
feature, serial, and popcorn.
There was always one adult at
these Saturday showings: Judge
E. Clay Lewis. He took his family
there every week and one just did
not "mess" with the Judge's Sat-
urdays.
Besides "Gone With The
Wind" one other notable showing
was all our introductions to the
first 3-D films. With those red and
green cellophane glasses which
everyone wore to see the 3-D
effect-what a joy that evoked
And then each Saturday night
there was Pixo (a game sort of like
Bingo) where everyone participat-
ed in hopes of winning a prize. I
must say that the owners. The
Martin Chain. really did every-
thing in their power to provide
great entertainment to our com-
munity.

Suggestion for 98
Dear Editor:
There have been a lot of plans
and considerable talk about tear-
ing up and moving Highway 98
(Dixie Belle Curve) away from the
beach for some distance, relocat-
ing it farther north. Hurricanes
have damaged Highway 98, at
times, 'so that the road became
almost impassable in the low
Highland' View area. In such
instances, law enforcement and
highway repair crew have to work
hard to keep both the local and
cross-country flowing smoothly.
But this is no reason to tear
up a perfectly good highway that
serves the: local residents well.
Too much 'traffic if the St. Joe
Company builds a large develop-
ment? I think that everyone would
take a look at continuing Highway
98 north across the bridge at
White City and then west along
.the intercoastal waterway to Over-
street and then on a diagonal to
the Panama City area via Highway
22. There are developed roads
along this proposed route. Using
Highway 382 north -to,72 would
route the traffic through Port St.
Joe as it does now.
This would help everyone in
Gulf county several ways, espe-
cially after a storm damages the
coast. One big benefit would be
the elimination of much traffic
through the Tyndall Air Force
Base, which is often closed after a
storm and also when traffic is
halted for rocket firing and. air-
shows. Mexico Beach residents
could get to Panama City much
faster than they can now, through
the Overstreet bridge. Traffic con-
trol after, a: hurricane would be
much easier and new paved high-
ways would open up much more
land for the average working per-
son.
The St. Joe Company would
make more money, too, by selling
some, of the vast amount of land
they own north of the intercoastal
waterway. The company is getting
ample money from the sales of
lots and new homes in their new
Dixie Belle Curve development to*
build the exact roads they need to
sell their properties.
Let's,save the many millions it
would cost to tear up and relocate
the present Highway 98 and
spend the money helping not only
the city and county governments
but the general population as
well. To my mind that's real


get a federal highway approprad-,
tion to do so? I think it is worth :.a:
serious try,
Sincerely yours,
Richard H. Logan

COUNTY COMMISSIONER, DIST. 3
I am Dr. Jorge San Pedro born in the central provence of Las Villas, Cuba, and

I arrived in the United States in 1966 and worked in a Miami hospital while study- i

My wife, Amalia, and I have lived in Port St. Joe since 1982. It was here that I set
up, my. medical practice: and also worked in the, correctional system .in
Wewahitchka for three years.
As a physician, I served the people of Port St. Joe for many years. Upon retiring,
my desire to continue to serve the people led me to run for city commissioner
and I was honored by the people by being elected.
Today, I would like to continue my quest at a higher level as your county commis-
sioner in District 3 R,
'As county commissioner,
I will pursue new opportunities for the people in. my county. I will seek new busi-'
nesses and environmentally clean and safe industries by taking advantage of,"
the recently approved tax incentive program.
I will propose the expansion of Florida 71 from two lanes to four lanes and also the
expansion of US 98 toward Apalachicola which is important in the significant>.
economical growth of our county and also necessary in the case of evacuation.,
t will propose the revival of the deep sea port for the condition and operation of,
import export which would comply with slate government's desire to increase,
business with Mexico and Latin-American nations and would provide many new
jobs and opportOnities for the people in my-county. : .

to break a tied score, Vernon
pulled ahead of Callaway in the
winners' bracket for a 7-6 win
Tuesday night. Vernon was led on
the mound by Brock (4) and Tyre
(3) who put together 14 strike-
outs, and gave up nine walks and
three hits-doubles by Cody
Chizmar and Mark Hankins, and
a single by Bryan Kropenick.
Callaway sent Steven Cunniff,
Mark Cato, Dane Willis, Hankins,

in to pitch during the game. They
combined for four strike-outs .
four walks, and six hits-a homer,,.
by Kohl Duty, two doubles -by,,
Boyett, two singles by Josh
Crundwell, and. a single by Tyre.,
After five and one-half innings
of play, Wednesday night's losers'
bracket game ended when a for-
feit was declared due to Callaway
failing to meet the player partic-
ipation requirement. [In tourna-
ment play, every participating
team's only requirement is that
each player complete one at-bat.],
Bartow's Patterson hurled a
complete game striking out nine,
walking five, and giving up four
hits-a home run to Lassiter, and
singles to Cunniff, Jarrett, and
Hankins.
I Willis, Hankins and Chizmar
pitched for Callaway picking up
nine strike outs, while giving up
three base on balls and two hits-
a homer to Patterson and single to

According to the runs which
crossed the plate prior to the for-
feit, Callaway led Bartow 3-2; the
forfeit was declared, the official
score was recorded as 6-1, and
Callaway was eliminated from fur-
ther competition.,
The nightcap winners' brack-
et turned out to be probably the
most exciting game of the tourney
as fans watched Vernon battle
Quincy Jackson Heights to a
tenth inning 5-4 victory.

Asthma Is Usually A

r Chronic Disease
Its victims have breathing difficulties. Attacks
are usually mild. Fortunately it is not contagious. But, if
neglected, asthma increases in severity and endangers
health. It may be caused by an allergy, infection or
even nervous tension.
If you think you have asthma, don't attempt self
a treatment. It is almost impossible for anyone but a
physician to diagnose the cause. With proper medical
K treatment asthma can be kept under control and often
cured.

Remembrances of Young Troop 47

The praise given to 'John 1

John was a very dedicated yout
leader. I often wonder what
direction some of our young
boys would have taken had he
not guided them, as he did,
through their formative years.
My remarks are not to add
to the recognition of scouting in
the late 40's, 50's, and 60's but
to. recall some events that
preceded this time.
The year was
1939. Our small

that we needed a Boy

teach our young boys

reliance, responsibil-
ty, and dedication to I
God and country.

scene at this time
and there was no ,.

excellent swimming and fishing in
the creek. Once, five of us walked
from the camp to Beacon Hill and
back again, a distance of 16 miles,
to pass our merit badge test for a
14 mile hike. We crossed the
Intracoastal canal at Overstreet on
a hand/cable ferry.
Another favorite camp site was
across Niles Road from the old
cemetery. This location was pri-
marily chosen because of a natur-
al spring that afforded us very cool
drinking water. We also called our
"New Yorkers," a one and one-half
liter soft drink, popular because of
its size. I believe this spring is still
flowing today.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, AUGUST 10, 2000 PAGE 3B


From the Principal of

Wewahitchka


High School

by Dr. Bill Truby


The enthusiasm generated by
out faculty and staff during our
pr4-service and in-service days is
unmatched in recent memory.
From our new teachers to our vet-
erans, all seem'genuinely excited
about the possibilities that this
scelool year will hold.
And with the addition of com-
puters, monitors, textbooks, and
supplies on a grand scale, there is
ample reason to be extremely
optimistic about the academic
successes we will enjoy.:
Of course, adding to. the plea-
sures of a new school year is the
fact that fall sports have begun in
earnest. The sight of footballs in
thi air, for example, is exhilarat-
ing to even the most casual of
sports fans.
There will be one new and sig-
S nilcant 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 I11th, at a Sock Hop
that will begin at 7:30 and end at
10:30. Tickets will be sold at the
door for $5. '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; and high schoolers
and anyone not at the Junior high
orientation will receive their
schedules 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 approximately 30 to
40 minutes. We plan to introduce
our new faculty members, recog-
nize some award winners from the
summer, and give some chal-
lenges to all of our students.
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.
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
you!
,One great way for parents
and community members to get
involved is to join the School
Advisory Council. This group of
people helps to form direction for
the school. And it is a great way to
get inside information about the
programs 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.
In case we missed it with all
that is going on, school does begin
on August 10th at, 7:49 a.m. We'll
see you then!

Wewa Adult Center
The Gulf County Adult Center
in Wewahitchka will begin a new
school year on August 10.
Registration will begin at 10:00
a.m. Adults can earn credits for
high school diploma or prep, for
the GED. For more information
