Boyd Calls For River Forum

In Wewahitchka On Thursday
Congressman Allen Boyd will host a community foru,.
addressing the concerns surrounding the Apalachicola Rivr
and the otlreatL issues facing-the. adjacent communities on
Thursday, August 31st, at 7:00 p.m. at the Wewahitchka-,
Community Center on Third Street.
Congressman Boyd, along with Senator Graham,
unveiled a plan the two have devised to deauthorize dredg-
ing on the Apalachicola River or navigational purposes last
week.
The plan. which calls for a study to measure the adverse,
effects dredging has had on wildlife and the -environment,
also directs the Army Corps of Engineers to develop a long-
term plan for habitat restoration.
Congressman Boyd played an instrumental role in nego-
tiating this compromise, however, there are several other
issues of concern to the residents near the Apalachicola
River, and Boyd is hosting this open forum in order to pro-
vide residents with information and field questions regard-
ing the river.

Vendors will be set up in

Lion of Highways 71 and 98 by
9:00 a.m. Saturday morning,


Saturday, you can browse in the
park Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to


5:00 p.m. to find that unique item
for yourself or a gift for a fnend.
Browsing can be hot work,
even under the shade of the many
trees in the park: so you can
quench your thirst and enjoy a
snack or dinner from any of the
numerous food vendors. You can
devour a chili dog, barbecue, or
really feast on seafood gumbo.,
shrimp, or shishkabobs.
Throughout the two-day
event, entertainment will be pro-
vided by local vocalists, bands.
and performing groups beginning
at 10:00 on Saturday morning.
The Panama City Pipes and,
Drums will perform at 2:00
Saturday afternoon. So go on
down to the park and enjoy a fun-
filled day. The namesake of the
festival, the succulent scallop, will
be in short supply this year. Very
few are being harvested due to the
effects of a red tide outbreak last
fall which is felt to have con-
tributed to the demise of the tasty
morsel.


Vote! Elction" 2000


Beg ns On September 5th


Gulf County electors; have
seen and heard more than their
share of politicians over the last
several months. It's now time to
transfer all of that information to
the ballots as the polls set to open
for the first primary on Tuesday,
September 5th.
With 42 candidates qualifying
for several county offices, the
-2000" ballot promises to be one
of. if not the largest, local elec-
Lions ever held in Gulf County.


SSlipped A Gear
.I Shortly before the noon hour on Friday, August 25th, Officer Chris Teeter investigated a crash
that occurred on Reid Avenue near Third Street. through the officer's investigation, he learned
that Sam Pollock had gotten out of his 1991 Ford Explorer, which he intended to be parked, and'
had left it in reverse by mistake.
After Pollock began walking away from the vehicle, it proceeded backward to cross Reid Avenue
S!and collide into another vehicle that was parked-then continued crashing ,into Ryan's Sugar
Shack. Officer Teeter estimated the damage to Ryan's Sugar Shack at $1,000, the Explorer at
!$1,,700, and the parked vehicle at $300.


Some Races Will Be Decided
September 5th.
Some races will or could be
decided by votes cast on,
September 5th, but in all likeli-
hood most will just see the field of
candidates narrowed 'to two.
Some voters will see a few things
different on this ballot.
Gulf County Supervisor of
Elections Cora Sue Robinson has
been working hard trying to get
the .word out about Universal*
Primary Contest (UPC).


SPECIAL ELECTION.
"2000" REVIEW
Throughout this edition of
The Star, readers will find an
election review of all the county.
candidates seeking election.
This has been compiled in
an effort to help.voters learn a
little more about the candi-
dates and see them in relation
to the other candidates in each
race. We have received a
response from each, and every
one of the 42 candidates who
qualified to seek election on the
"2000" ballots.
I They have responded in
writing to questions about
themselves, why they are seek-
ing office, why should electors
make them their choice, and
what are their plans and goals
for the future, if elected.
A photo of each candidate
will accompany the candidate
review. /


Two Races Qualify For
Universal Primary Contest
In 1998, Florida voters
approved a change to the Florida
Constitution which created
UPC'se It states that if the only
candidates in a race are of the
same party and there is no other
opposition in the General
Election, then all voters, regard-
Iia of party affiliation may vote
in that contest during the prima-

In the past, only voters regis-
tered in the same party as the
candidate running for office could
vote in races where their names


appeared in the primary elec-
tion-this is called a closed pri-
mary.
There will be two UPC races,
during the first primary election-
Gulf County Supenntendent of
Schools and Gulf County Clerk of
the Circuit Court.
Democrats Jerry E. Kelley's
and Martha Weimorts' names will
appear on all, primary election
ballots-Democratic, Republican.
and Non-Partisan. This race will
be decided in the first primary
and voted on by all Gulf County
voters.
Douglas C. Birmingham, Ted'I
Cannon, Keith L. "Duke" Jones,
and John W. "Johnny" Stanley,
will also be printed on all three
party's ballots because all candi-
dates are Democrats in the Gulf
County Clerk' of the Circuit Court
race.
This race could also be decid-
ed since no candidate is running
from another party. But, in order
for that to happen, one of thel four

In addition to the Scallop
Festival, the Saltwater Slam
Fishing Tournament is being con-
ducted out of the Port St. Joe
Marina. in conjunction with the
Gulf County Tounrist Development
Council and the Chamber of
Commerce. The three-day fishing
tournament has captain's meeting
set for Friday evening, with cate-
gories for both inshore and off-
shore divisions. In the .master's
division, commercial boats are
eligible.according to Jacque
Hance, marina spokesperson.

Nominations''
Members of the 14th Circuit
Judicial Nominating Committee
selected three persons as candi-
dates to fill the vacant Gulf
County Judge position after inter-
views with the seven applicants
last Friday, August 25th.
The names of Timothy "Tim"
McFarland, S. Russell "Russ"
Scholz, and Fred Witten, all of
Port St. Joe, will be forwarded to
Governor Jeb Bush who will
appoint one of the three candi-
dates to fill the unexpired term of
the late Gulf County Judge Robert
"Bob" Moore. Moore recently lost
his life in a tragic automobile
accident.
Judicial Nominating Commit-.
tee Chairman Jay Manuel, a
Panama City attorney, notified
The Star of the selection and out-
lined the process during a phone
conversation Monday morning.
He was quick to point out that the
folks of Gulf County had played a
very active role in the' selection
process. "We've received numer-
ous calls and letters from people
throughout the community," he
said.

Editorial 'Com.enptaory Colu rps Writin: by Willie Ramsey, Editor



Rights,



Responsibility, and



Accountability


These Are All BIG Words
Seems like every election, I find myself focusing this editorial,
space on "pumping up" voters to exercise their right to vote.
This year is no different, but I don't really believe it's going to
take a lot of pumping on my part to getvoters to the polls. With
42 candidates qualified on the local level, just about every per-
son in Gulf County is either related to, 'close friends with, or has
some other personal connection to.at least one or more of.the
host of candidates.
There are one or two of the candidates that I don't personal-
ly know well, and of those I know, there are none that I don't feel
comfortable calling them my friend, or at least am on friendly
.speaking terms with.
Someone asked me the other day. what I had heard about the
election, and I was real quick to point out-nothing!! Folks have
been extremely careful not to speak badly of any candidate.
I believe one of the reason for that is because so many of the
races and candidates running for those positions are connected
in one way or another.
Someone did ask me if The Star would be endorsing candi-
dates this year. Well .... No! Absolutely not.
I hope that what you, as readers, see in this publication is a
reflection of the character of the people who put in numerous
hours every week to publish each issue. As a paper, I feel our
main focus is to report news. In doing this. we strive to give a
non-biased interpretation of what's going on, educate the public
on issues, and touch on something of interest to everyone in our
coverage area.
We restrict our opinions to the editorial page and acknowl-
edge regularly that they are our own opinions. To do otherwise
seems to me to be trying to shape the way people think. That
doesn't seem to fit real well with our country's beliefs and demo-
cratic style of government. Furthermore, I've found that most
folks either take offense, or do the opposite, when someone tries
to tell them what their opinions or ideas should be.
What we have done over the past several months is run on
the front page of The Star "free of charge" announcements of
intentions to seek office for each of the candidates. And, in this
week's edition, we've included a review of each of those candi-
dates and a thumbnail sketch about who they are, why they are
seeking office, and what their goals are for the offices.
As the title of this editorial suggests, our right to vote carries
not only the responsibility to vote. but also an accountability for
who we have voted. We, the voters, are in total control-barring
some act of God-of our county's and country's future.
I trust that most of us have already educated ourselves on
the issues, researched the candidates to see where they're at in
relation to the issues, their character, education, and all the
other important areas of concern.
Let us all remember that the folks we elect over the next few
months are going to be in office for a minimum of four years.
That's a long time to put up with someone who might have got-
ten our vote on a hunch, during an emotional moment. or
through some "slick"
advertising campaign.
| Maybe the only thing
worse than not exercising
our right to vote is not
taking the other responsi-
bilities that go along with
S \that right equally as seri-

polls!"


Hunker Down With Kes by Kesley Co bert;


Rachel Shows Her Good Side


"Mr. Kes, did you find Miss
Cathy :a pair of sandals yet?'
Sarah Ruth managed to get the
question out between bites of her
bacon cheeseburger special.
"Well, I looked ."
"If. they' don't have it here,.", the
Rachel'with a buffalo wing in each'
1liand slowed just en-Iough to'join in,
maybe yo,,u ,can find it at the other


rnd I."
Freckle- ne' c r Iooked up fronmi
her 'bia meal d but added. 'You ,ve
act to look in a lot of stores ,o find
i.he rihL deal."
Katie Elizabeth had already
scarlfd donv..Ti the trucker's special
and was too busy eemng the
dessert menu. to bother with the
discussion.
I didn't know girls ate like this!
And I hadn't come to buy any-
thing. The Sunday school class
had decided on the shopping trip. I
was just here to drive the van. I'd
already explained that I don't
"shop."
The running'shoes were kinda


by accident. They w'.ere on sale.
And the guyL took a credit card!
h\\Tat have you ladie- pur-
chased?' I asked as w'.e waited for
the slo'. Rachtel L"o ,inii h her I: t
le\'w morsels.
Nothing yet
"We're looking."
"You have to take your time."
"It's all part of shopping."
I must be missing something
here! "They" had been planning
this shopping trip for weeks. We
came to Tallahassee because "it's
got two malls." We"d been here all
morning. And I'm the only person
who's bought anything?


'You can buy too quickly, Mr.
Kes."
I pondered on exactly what
that meant as we waited another
fifteen minutes for Rachel to fin-
ish.
The girls wouldn't let me pay
for lunch. They Insisted on divvy-
ing up their share. Remarkable! I
go someplace with old women, I
never see them pull out any money

"Mr. Kes, we'll finish up here
by two-thirty and head to the other
m all.'" ,
"You find Miss Cathy some
sandals."
"And don't get lost." -
"Do be careful, Mr. Kes."' '
I ran across some of those cut-
off runriing socks to go with my
shoes. The clerk hardly even
looked up as she took my credit
card. "I didn't come to buy so.eks
today, I'm just ,shopping.%,', I
declared proudly! ,
Then ,1 found a set of bl'h6
inserts "guaranteed to ease the
strain on my ankles, knees and
back" as I ran. And I bought a belt.
I was pretty loaded up when.I-
met the girls. Sarah Ruth had p"e
little sack under her arm. The,slow
eating Rachel might'a had some-
thing everybody else was
empty handed.
I tried to show 'em my inserts,
but they were in a hurry to get to
the other mall.
I contemplated on how little [
knew about shopping, and tred to
catch a quick nap as Katie
Elizabeth wheeled us across 'the
city.
"Be back right here at 'five-
thirty, Mr. Kes." 'They were off
again.
This mall looked a lot like the
first one. Except they had -this
gigantic sports store .... I showed
'em my credit card when I went
through the front door. I wanted
them to know I was a serious
shopper.
Folks, J hung,in theree w.ith
'em,"buying. and looking and ppc-
ing and pushing and hurrying, till
near 'bout five o'clock, 1 found a
bench up by the meeting place'aLid
sat the rest of the trip out. This
real shopping is hard on your feqt!
The girls drifted in. "Where ~lid
ya'll get all those packages?" Iwas
amazed. They hadn't hardly had a
thing just a few moments earlier!
There was some kind of navy store
in this mall, and apparently' "we
had a few to enlist!
"Mr. Kes, I can't find the pants
I want. Can we stay a little longer?"
The older Rachel took off before I
could answer.
"I'm hungryy" Katie Elizabeth
flopped down beside me. "Are ,we
going to eat on this tnp?"
Sarah Ruth and Frecklesi ft
on the floor. The others gath r d
around. We shared some convey i-
tion. We watched funny peopi fo
by. We rehashed our shopping .
(See 'KESLEY ON PAGe )


I Give Up On Trying To Grow My Favorite Fruits and


I WAS SITTING down to
'breakfast, the other day. when
Dorethea Allen came, in the side
door, carrying a sack of scupper-
nongs .... the black ones.
Dorethea used to work for us
-for about 10 years. She had the
run of the house then and she
has the run of the house now.
The only :reason she stopped
working for 'us was because she
suffered a stroke.
She gets along with a cane,'
just like I do. We commiserate
with one another, ... *
Dorethea didn't forget how I
like scuppernongs, ,and I don't
forget how she likes freshwater
fish and fresh satsumas from off
my tree.
Dorethea has me spoiled and
I have Dorethea spoiled. The
only thing lacking is,' we neither
one have a recipe for scupper-
nong pie.

IF ANYONE HAPPENS to
have a recipe for the pie, I have


some slightly tart scuppernongs
with which to make some pies.
The only source of the pies I
have ever found is my son-in-
law's mother, Mrs. 0. 0. Oliver.
The only twist to' that is she
lives near Jehu Cemetery, in
Wewahitchka. She can. "rattle
those pots."
She'd have half the popula-
tion of Jehu Cemetery resurrect-
ed with the smell of her cooking,
if she's not careful.
She used to keep several
pies frozen for just such occa-
sions as this, when I'm suffering
a scuppernong pie attack. Every
time she would come for a fami-


lyr dinner, at her son's and
daughter-in-law's home, lihe
would 'bring along one or two, of
the pies. Ij
The last few times, however,
she has said' her scupperno gs
have quit bearing those lusciQus
grapes.
Her husband is no longer
alive .to tend to the grapes. I
have no talents for growing ;the.
grapes and making them pros-
per. The late Bernice Barbee
rooted me a grapevine. Berriice
could make things grow in a .,ed
of saltwater.
But once I got them they
managed to turn up and die.


.,BUT, AS LONG AS people
'v,ill continue sharing their
grapes with me, everything will
be alright as soon as I get
possession of a pie recipe.
I didn't know Dorethea had a
healthy grapevine in her yard. I
know she has a-healthv pecan
tree-another thing I,can't grow
with any success. Al Harrison
gave me a pecan tree he had pro-
cured from FICO Farms, Al. had"
procured enough to plant a. 20-
acre plot.
The trees were supposed to
bear pecans," full force, in about
five years. They were an experi-
mental strain of tree.
You know the story of the
pecan experiment in Gulf
.County-
They failed!
So, I don't- know who to
blame for my lack of pecan crop.
I have a nice healthy tree in my
backyard with no pecans! To go
with my grapevine which has no
grapes!


SI have satsumas, though!,

A FEW YEARS AGO I plant-
ed a persimmon tree. It was one
of those large persimmons. I did-
n't count on having too many
persimmons. I had eaten too
many of the ,wild type with the
resultant shrunken mouth.,
Every: year that tree has
promised a bumper, crop: This
year, .three fruit pro6hise to stay
until they ripen. About a month'
ago, I had a tree loaded with
dozens of fruit.
The same holds 'true of my
lemon tree.
That tree bore blossoms like
crazy! I counted my lemons
before they, hatched; just like
with the rest of my fruit.
The net result is that three
lemons are -still holding forth on
my tree, with a promise of ripen-
ing.

I DIDN'T PLANT my usual


Vegetables

tomato plants this year. As a
result, we have had all the fr4eh
tomatoes we could eat!
Folks have given us all i
could eat. We'd not have thi
same luck if we had planted!
I've sworn never to attem it
growing those succulent fruit
and vegetables I like so muc .
There's too many "Dorethea's'
in the world, growing all of theP
goodies, who are. willing
share. '
I think my excuse for nrt
making a crop is that we live tp
.close to the bay. ', I
That would, .make a goid
excuse except fo4 one thing, thl
largest tomato plant I have evr
seen in Port St. Joe was growing
.in Lamar Hardy's back yard a I
the best garden was grown
Lamnar a few years ago, when
was growing gardens.
My excuse would stand pat f
it wasn't for the fact that Lam'4r
lived two doors nearer to the.bWy
than' I do!

.First and foremost, candi-

fiow they met the stringentquali-
fications required to be' a good
judge. But, the nine member
padel also heard the requests
from people within' the
community asking them to select
candidates who would be accept-
ed by the community and that
know and understand its people.
Manuel said the three candi-
dates' names will be forwarded to
Governor Bush listed in alphabet-
ipaj order with no preference
other than being deemed qualified
by the Judicial Nominating
Committee.
In That Order

East Meets West at Geri-Care
Wednesday, August 23, in a gracious display of friendship and culture, an O-Bon Festival
(Japanese Summer Festival) was held at Geri-Care Assisted Living Center on Beacon Hill. In prepa-
ration for the event, residents spent several days learning about Japan and its people, painting a
wdl mural of Mt. Fuji, creating a Japanese garden, and enjoying a Japanese lunch.
When the day for the O-Bondori (dance) arrived, three ladies traveled from Panama City to vis-
it'with the residents and tell them more about their country, then dressed in beautiful attire they
presented a number of traditional dances. With authentic music in the background, their grace
and dignity provided a scene of beauty that will long be remembered. But more important, is the
spirit of friendship and generosity that they brought with them and left behind as a memory.
In the photo at left, Hiroko Cacharel (left), Micki Frost (center), and Eiko Sencil (right) pause
for a photo during the fun event. On the right, Hiroko and Eiko perform a dance for the residents.

Grateful for

Quick Aid

Dear Editor:
Seven thirty last Friday night
as the Sharks were about to begin
their new football season, light-
ning struck. One of the many
bolts that lit up the sky hit a tree
adjacent to our business, Pic's
Food Store. Due to the extreme
weather conditions we have had, a
fire quickly spread through the
brush. Thanks to the observance
and fast action of three young
men-Alan, Troy and Craig-the
fire's effects were minimal. They
called 911 and immediately con-
tained the fire.
The volunteer fire depart-
ments from both South Gulf
County and Port St. Joe and the
Gulf County Sheriffs department
responded and had the fire out in
no time. What these volunteers
did for my family and me could
never be more appreciative. They
got involved!
I want to thank each of you
for caring enough to get involved
either as a neighbor, a firefighter
or a deputy. What took less than
an hour to occur has made a last-
ing impression on me and I
wanted to thank each of you for
your help.
Grateful,
Boyd Pickett


Saturday will be dinner at the
Five Points recreation center just
up the road a ways. There is
always plenty of camping area
and R.V. parking room. Motels are
nearby in Bonifay, about 20 min-
utes away.
So, if you are a descendent of
Benjamin and Serena (Cowart)
Pitts of Holmes County, go and
attend this reunion and take the
whole family,
Those attending are reminded


to bring a well-filled basket of
goodies, also take your talents

2000-2001
To be, honest I was not quite
sure how to open this time. Being
a senior, I wanted to do something
else for them: however, I ran
across something in my Cross
Country magazine that kind of
summed up what I was trying to
say: "In one sense 'the, running
kid' is just like the any other high
school senior. We are all over-
worked and underslept and we,
can't believe we are already on our
way to college."
This holds so true and it made
me realize not only will we be grad-
uating and moving away soon, but
we will be moving on. For many of
you. PSJ is all you have ever
known. so as the next couple of
months go by take time to get to
know the rest of your "classmates"
better. It doesn't matter if they are
in your "click' or not. Smile, say
hi. because when you look at it. we
are all in the same position. We

FCAT Required for

Tenth Grade Students

By: Sara Joe Wooten


The 1999 legislature passed a
statute that requires students
who graduate in the 2002-2003
Syea~p u~apassing
S on hor Ifth rad M FCAT
reading and math.
This. law also affects adult
school students who will graduate


Beginning last year, WES has
worked toward full implementa-
tion of a project known as CRISS.
CRISS is an acronym standing for
Creating Independence. Through
Student-owned Strategies. It was
created to help students .better
organize. understand, and retain
course information. In short, stu-
dents Involved with the CRISS
method of instruction will "learn
how to learn."'
The CRISS program was
,developed in the Kalispell School
District in Montana in 1970 and-
has become'a nationally validated
project. Many teachers in districts
throughout the country have
readily adapted ideas from CRISS
in their classrooms.
Students learn to become
strategic when teachers teach the
process of learning directly


through explanation and model-
ing. Often students do not know
how to learn. Teachers have to
show them how.
When introducing a new
strategy, teachers need to take to
the stage. They show. tell, model,
demonstrate and explain not only
the intent, but the process of
active learning. As the student
learns, there is a gradual release'-
of responsibility from the teacher
to the student. : '
The first part is an explana-
tion of what the strategy is and
why students use it to improve
their comprehension and reten-
tion. If the students do not know
why they are performing an activ-
ity, they rarely repeat the behav-
ior on their own.
The second' part is modeling
or demonstration and discussion
of the procedures for doing the
strategy. During this part, teach-
ers model or ask students to
model how to do a particular task.
They discuss. demonstrate and
think aloud while modeling. After
the teacher has modeled a partic-
ular strategy. students have
opportunities to practice with
guidance and feedback. Moreover,
students are encouraged to talk
about strategies they find to be
personally effective.

It is the hope of the. WES
instructional staff that after prac-
ticing the strategies, students will
adopt them as their own and
employ them as lifelong learners.,

Highland View School

Takes New Direction-,

By: Sara Joe Wooten
Have you noticed something'
different about Highland View
Elementary School? The new ehvi-
ronmentally appropriate play-
ground is just one of the many
changes that have been taking
place. Highland View Elementary
is now the. new home of North
Florida Child Development's Head
Start Center. This center serves
children birth to five years of age.
The programs offered focus on
comprehensive child care, parent
training, and other social services.
The Early Head Start Program
is a 12 month program, and the
Head Start Program Is Operated
during the school year. As oppor-
tunities arise, other grants will be
pursued to continue expanding
services.
Another new face at Highland
,View Elementary is the New
Beginnings Program. This pro-
gram provides a center where par-
ents and children who are sepa-
rated can meet for visits.
Both agencies are nonprofit,
but they have spent a great deal of
time and money renovating High-
land View Elementary to be a
state-of-the-art facility. All of the
improvements have been at no
cost to the Gulf County School
Board.
When the school board voted
to merge Highland View with Port
St. Joe Elementary, it was out of
economic necessity. Through the
vision of the school board and
superintendent, Highland View is
still a community learning center.

good blocking from a few guys,
and didn't get what we hoped to
from some :others," added Gan-
n,O.,;Kyro.,,did-.a g Qd job catch-
ing the ball for us, but we've got to
get another receiver to step up
where teams won't be able to dou-

the ball hard."

pretty good shape, and without
any injuries," said Gannon.

approximately 1200 residents
though this past weekend was.
anything but quiet. Excited tour-
B nament anglers from the tri-states
converged for the Mexico Beach
Artificial Reef Association's 4th
Annual Kingfish Tournament. ,
This 501C(3) all volunteeri
organization continues to be a
leader in reef-building efforts ini
the South. This organization was i
founded in 1997 with the sole'
purpose of renovating the reefs in.!
the nearshore Gulf waters in our
area. To date, the MBARA has',
constructed over 60 new reefs uti-
lizing more than 60 Reefballs,
Fish Haven Pyramids, hundreds
Io of tons of concrete culverts and
pipes donated by Sikes Concrete
of Panama City, and other
approved materials. A total of
over 8200,000 has been invested
in their quest to improve the
marine resources in this area. An
aggressive research program has`
also begun to locate, catalog, and
evaluate marine growth and fish;
S populations on a wide variety of
reel structures with the long-
range objective of identifying the
optimum reef materials, structure
and layout to provide the greatest
". fish populations. The MBARA's,
long-range goals are to increase
the number of reef replacements:
to over 200 individual reef sites.
The tournament director Drid
* Ron Childs called this year's tourl
nament a rousing success. Ther.
were 109 boat entries carrying
over 400 anglers trying for more
than $5,000 in prize money ,
Childs said both the weather and
the fish cooperated with true
Northwest Florida hospitality.
The hundreds of volunteers and
business sponsors are what
enable the MBARA to continue
their reef building efforts. We try
to put the fun back into fundrais-
ing and this year was our best
ever. The Captain's party was'
held at the Hide-A-Way Harbor
Marina and despite the storm that
which passed through, a record number
of boats were registered and cap-


0.97 lb. king mackerel was worth $2,500 in the Mexico Beach
tournament. It was caught by Kyle Pless and Jimmy McCarthy.

Good Fishing-Good Luck
by: Capt. Chuck Guilford,

August was a much better
month than expected, even
though it was muggy, hot; and
windy at times, and had a lot of
lightning loaded thunder
bumpers. September should bring
a big increase in kings and large
spanish close to the beaches, and
particularly over the Car Body
Reef balls. The specs and flounder
will start feeding longer in the bay
and the first run of roe mullet will
appear by the end of the month.
Offshore, all species are in full
feeding frenzy. The dolphin seem
to be around every weed line or
floatsom you find. The wahoo and
kings are on average larger than
before. The grouper and scamp
are beginning to feed a little more
actively, and should continue on
through September. The red snap-
per have only gotten larger, hut
have not diminished in numbers.
They should continue to be plenti-
ful. If you are going to catch a bill-
fish or large dolphin, now is the
time to go for them.

WHAT IS A UNIVERSAL
Cora Sue Robinson PRIMARY CONTEST?
SPrecinct Polling Locations In 1998 voters approved a change to the Florida Constitution that allowed for
Universal Primary Contest (UPC), If the only candidates in the race are of the
PrecinctNumber & Location same party and there is no other opposition for the General Election, then all vot-
Precinct Number & Location ers, regardless of party affiliation, may vote in that contest during the primary.
This is different from the usual Closed Primary system that Florida has, where-

In the past. all city elections

they cast their votes for county-
Swide eltiodns.
Voters who normally vote

Port St. Joe and Wewa Elementary


In "PeaceBuilders" Pilot Program


On August 9th, all staff at
Port St. Joe Elementary and
Wewahitchka Elementary Schools
participated in the PeaceBuilders
inservice training sponsored by
the Panhandle Area Educational
Consortium (PAEC) and the Gulf
County School District. These two
Gulf County schools are the first
pilot sites in the state of Florida
representing the nationally recog-
nized PeaceBuilders program.
Sue Johns and Jennifer
Adams of PAEC provided the
training at each of the elementary
schools. Superintendent Jerry
Kelley said. 'PeaceBuilders is a
proven social skills program


designed to improve school cli-
mate and provide students with
the means to resolve conflicts in
positive ways."
The purpose of the training is
to provide positive alternatives to
violence. Through positive role
models and the five basic
PeaceBuilders' principles, stu-
dents learn to build peace at
school. home. and their commu-
nities. The five principles include
praising people. giving up put-
downs. nghting wrongs,. seeking
wise people, and noticing and


speaking up about hurts.

Teachers, lunchroom staff,
bus drivers, and other school staff
began implementation of the
PeaceBuilders program on the
first day of school, August 10.
Parents and visitors will see evi-
dence of the PeaceBuilders pro-
gram through a signed staff
commitment pledge, posters and
banners made by students, posi-
tive attitudes of students and
school staff, and learning more
,about building peace.


Faye Yongue, a program coor-
dinator at PAEC who shares the
excitement of the Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka Elementary staff,
said, "PeaceBuilders can provide
the direction as we seek to truly
build better communication and
safer schools and communities."
A PeaceBu:lders launch will
occur in each community. Watch
for information from the school
sites and PAEC's, website, www
.paec.org which also has a link to
the national PeaceBuilders web-
site.'


AN OPEN LETTER TO THE VOTERS OF GULF COUNTY



VOTE TUESDAY D SEPTEMBER 5TH


During the past several weeks, either I or someone very
close to me has knocked on almost every door in Gulf County
to ask for your vote and support in the upcoming electioi.-
Some of you were not available, and we -left a brochure telling
you about me and my qualifications. If I have failed to see you
I am sorry, and I will be continuing to visit voters up until
election day, September 5 1.


I believe the thing that sets me apart from the.other
candidates is EXPERIENCE. For over 10 1/2 years I have
worked in the office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court as the
Chief Deputy Clerk. Therefore, I have "hands on experience"
with every function the Clerk performs.


Port St. Joe Elementary teacher Linda Patterson explains the PeaceBuilders principles to her
students, Marty Riley with Gulf County School Board, and Jennifer Adams with the Panhandle Area
Educational Consortium.

years and there are many more we

Election
- date for the job.
T; If I am elected to the office of
a Superintendent of Schools, I.will
strive to improve student achieve-
e ment by working, together with
s school personnel, parents, ..and
- the community so that our stu-
s dents can be competitive with
e other students in the state and
i- the nation when they leave our
- school system. I believe this can
be accomplished within the dis-
trict's budget. I will be working to
e improve our schools so that our
d children will have the foundation
- they need for a successful future.,


Property Appraiser for the past 15
years. I have had the good fortune
to work with a super staff who are
truly dedicated to serving the
public. And we, in turn, have had
the good fortune to work for some
of the greatest people on earth.
Over the past 15 years we
have worked very hard to upgrade
and maintain a fair and equitable
tax roll that meets the standards
established by the Flori8a State
Legislature. We have worked with
. the House and Senate to pass leg-
islation that would benefit our
county. And we have fought pro-
posed bills, such as mid-year
assessments, that we felt would
be an added burden to the.people
we serve.
The unprecedented ,rise in
property values in Gulf County in
the last three years, the addition-
al exemption for qualified seniors
and the increased sales activities
have all presented real challenges
for the office. We must continual-
ly streamline and upgrade in
order to meet the level of service
and efficiency you expect from us,
We are striving daily to improve in
every area and we would welcome
your suggestions and comments.
Again, we appreciate the
opportunity to work for you land if
vwe can help you in any way, at
,any time, please let me know.

My name is Sally Malone, I live at St. Joe Beach & I am a candidate for your Gulf County
Commission, District 3,
I BELIEVE IN:
Government of the people, by the people, and for the people. This is YOUR GOVERNMENT.
If YOU don't participate by VOTING, SERVING ON JURIES, and COMMUNICATING with,-
your elected officials, telling them what you want, then your voice will not be heard, and
they will listen to someone else.
You CANNOT just elect someone to a trusted office, and expect them t to tdche riAbt tlhirig
for the people. You have to stay in touch with them. Tell them what you think .and .,.int.
ELECTED OFFICIALS ARE YOUR SERVANTS! YOU EMPLOY THEM! If you were operat-
ing a business, you would not hire workers and allow them to do as they please. YOU
* WOULD SUPERVISE THEM TO BE SURE THAT THEY WERE DOING THEIR JOB!
We live here, this is our COUNTY and we elect officials to look after our interests! If they
don't, VOTE THEM OUT!
I BELIEVE that all citizens are EQUAL! dne person = One vote; No matter how much money
or influence, they have.
You-have a greater number of candidates running for office this year than I have seen in the
past 42 years, and that's democracy in action!
This election is crucial for 'the future of GULF COUNTY. There are tremendous changes
ahead in the immediate future. Examine the candidates' carefully and
VOTE for the candidJte ot our choice


When elected, I plan to do my best to represent the will of you, the
. voters, in a dignified manner, with honesty, courtesy, integrity and fair-
ness to all. Thank you for your time and consideration.

We may have changed throu h the year?, je thing that has stayed the same
-is our dad's love for kids and inter Tin the school system.
This is evidenced by his continued involvement through the years.
Some think you have to be an educator to be a successful board member.


I strongly disagree!
The main ingredient in the making of an effective board member
is a LOVE FOR CHILDREN and a desire to work together for their good
and the good of the school system as a whole.
Dad brings with him 8 years experience as a former board member (1976-84).
When you go to the polls .next Tuesday, please


consider our dad, PA U L EW E L L, as your District

specifically new home construc-
tion, our economy is headed in a
new direction. In the Tax
Collector's office we see people
from out of state moving here
almost on a daily basis. Gulf
County is on the way back. As Tax
Collector, I will try to expand the'
office to more 'efficiently meet the
needs of our growing population. I
will make sure that the Gulf
County Tax Collector's Office is
technologically equal to any in the
state of Florida. Most important,
the customer's needs are first and

efficient atmosphere set by my

Gulf County in a Christian man-
ner and be a county servant for all
the people. I feel with my busi-
ness management and Christian
back ground that I can run an
honest, friendly and efficient
office for the people of Gulf
County. If I am elected I want to
become a voice for taxpayers. For
example, I want to create a public
* tax education program that shows
residents where their taxes go and
why they should pay them. The
tax collector needs to be in touch
with the average taxpayer, he
becomes a fundamental voice on
their behalf. I believe that as the
county grows we must be pre-
pared for new challenges and be
able to make the right decisions
for the best interest of all the citi-


zens of Gulf County.

Dear Gulf County Voters,


We will soon have the opportunity to participate in one of the greatest aspects of our democratic society-the right

to vote our conscience for the various offices in our county government.

I am seeking the office of your school superintendent, which is certainly one of the most important jobs because it

deals directly with our most precious gifts-our children. Each'day, we place our sons and daughters in the hands of peo-

ple who teach, drive, feed, coach, nurse, counsel, clean up after, and, above all, love them.

As your superintendent, I pledge never, to forget these important supportive people. Their dedication is tireless and

often overlooked. They seldom get engraved plaques or have their pictures taken for the newspaper for a job well done. I

understand that a superintendent's success can only be obtained through the hard work of the entire support,

staff. l shall not presume to take the credit al n that so rightfully belongs to other deserving employees.

Above all, however, I pledge not to forget the students themselves. STUDENTS MUST BE FOREMOST IN ALL DECI-

SIONS MADE in the superintendent's office. Today's educational system continuously places more academic demands on

students, yet administrators fail to give children the recognition and honors they deserve when they meet these

expectations. Often, the praise and recognition are lavished upon the administration-not where it actually belongs.

Please feel assured that, as your superintendent, my ntent will be neither to gain fame nor recognition for myself,

but to lead our entire school system into the challenging, changing, and competitive twenty-first century. OUR STUDENTS

MUST BE PREPARED to be favorable, contributors in these new, exciting times.

I shall listen to your suggestions and concerns, for as a parent, I understand how serious matters involving your

children are to you. Together, the school system and the community can make Gulf County Schools excellent in providing

for our children.

Sincerely,

that experience will be your

Collector because I feel I can be an
asset to the office. As a present
County Commissioner I have had
the opportunity to deal with state

Tommy











County Commissioner


District 3



To the Voters of District 3:

I have enjoyed serving as your Commissioner for the
past 4 years. I am proud of the Board's accomplish-
ments and what that means for the District 3 voters.
As I stated 4 years ago, we must work together and by
working together we can make a difference!

+ Tourist Development Tax-Monies from this tax offset the costs
that the county must spend on parks, boat ramps, beach main-
tenance and law enforcement. This helps keep taxes down!

4 Supported the Homestead Exemption for Senior Citizens!

4 Presently working on adding additional fire hydrants in Beacon
Hill.

.+ Instrumental in locating Geri-Care to Beacon Hill which not
only helps our senior citizens, they also provide other medical
needs for our community. Geri-Care also brought much needed
jobs to our county.
4 Maintain beaches on regular basis to keep them clean and safe.
Acquired a $100,000 grant to complete the BeacoQ Hill Park.
4 Secured a grant for $500,000.00 for the Gulf County Sewer
Project that will eventually bring sewer to the Beaches and
Highland View.
4 Obtained a public service channel (Channel 53) that allows
everyone to view public meetings and be informed of the activi-
ties in the county.
+ Applied for a grant to complete the Highland View Boat iRamp.

+ Applying for a grant for stormwater improvements to the
Highland View Community.
+ Support reducing ad-valorem taxes.

4 Oppose the relocation of Highway 98 through the Beaches area.
4 Presently working with Congressman Boyd and FEMA to repeal
the flood elevations in White City. Paving over 95% of the roads
in Beacon Hill and Highland View.
4 Support acquiring property for public beach access. Recently
acquired a 5' easement in Beacon Hill.
4 Secured approval to allow engineers to perform a sewer study
for White City. Saw the need for an Economic Development
Committee in Gulf County.

4 Completed the White City Boat Ramp and Park which is now
considered one of the top facilities in Northwest Florida.

4 Maintained and cleaned the ditches, right-of-ways and beaches
on a regular basis.

+ Secured approval to accept Phase II of Gulfaire Subdivision and
Pelican Walk.

It has been my goal to be responsive to needs of the
people in District 3 and I will continue to work for
all of the citizens in my district. As Paul Harvey
said, "Now you know the rest of the Story!" I work

As the election nears, I would like to take this opportunity to say "thank
you." You have invited me into your homes, voiced your concerns and made this
a great experience. I have found that most citizens in our county have the same
concerns. Taxes are high on the list; no one wants to pay more taxes. Senior cit-

on the list is preserving Gulf County; we must keep working together as a county

live and visit.

served as County Commissioner
District 1 from 1992 until 1996,
during which time I was proud to
have worked: with the fire and,
ambulance department and on
the road paving projects, I feel
that are many needs that the peo-
ple of District I have and I would
like to be the voice to speak up for
them.
During my elected term as
County Commissioner District 1, I
worked hard to help the people of
Dalkeith get their own fire depart-
ment. I worked with the flood vic-
tims 'after the flood, with any
assistance that we could give in
their time of devastation. Because
I have my own business I have
time to work with the people. My
doors are open to the residents of
Gulf County at any time that they
feel the need to discuss any needs
that they have that I could help
them with.
My ideas about the future of
Gulf County and what I plan to do
towards bringing future about. My,
idea of the future of Gulf County
would be a county that had
enough jobs and resources that
nobody would have to leave the
county to get a good job. I would
like to see the' days again when
you could go fishing and catch a
mess of fish. I would like to see a
county that bands together to
help their neighbors in need.
Please remember to vote because
your vote counts. I would like to
ask for your support and help in

active in the Little League as well
as the High School sporting
events here ih Wewahitchka and
was an active athlete in my school
years. I enjoy it immensely and
strive to help ,the children. I enjoy
cooking and assisting the Senior
Citizens in our community every
year. It doesn't take an election for
me to be involved
Response: I am running for
office to broaden:my ability to.
assist people, i. feel I can better
serve Gulf County as well as the
City of Wewahitchka as a County
Commissioner.., I want :to make.
Gulf County a better place to raise
a family. '
SI feel that I. am, qualified to
hold this: office from the experi-
ence I have in the business world
and the time I have spent, 17
years, at the City Hall in Wewa-
hitchka as Mayor-Commissioner.


My idea about the future of Gulf
County. I know that Gulf County
will be growing in the next five
years and we need to be looking
for some jobs for our citizens so
they will not have to leave home to
find work. We just need to do
some serious planning for the
future of our county.

Hello,

S I am Karen King, can-
didate for the office of
Supervisor of Elections. I
was born in Gulf County.

S I graduated from Port
St. Joe High School in
1969. I live on Palm

I will have a friendly and efficient office. I will work to
secure a machine to provide each voter a registration card

identification when voting.

If I didn't see you personally, please consider this a knock
at your door!

If you don't know me ask someone who does.

of County Commissioner District

always be available to any citizen
from any district, including every'

trict equally.

family): Acquire a park for the
children of Highland View: Provide
affordable sewer for all of District

volunteer emergency services;
Commitment to reduce the Ad-

profit.

borhood chairman, member of the.
Board of the Girl Scout Council of
the Apalachee Bend. Took 150
Girl Scouts from Gulf County

years. Served as Den Mother for.
the Boy Scouts of America.
Refurbished, re-opened. and'
supervised the operation of the St.
Joe Teen Age Center (STAC

four years of age. Finished high

Attended Gulf Coast and F.S. U.
Response: I want to serve the
people of Gulf County. I don't owe
anyone anything ai d I have no
special interest to serve! I truly
believe that the very best govern-
ment is the result of the participa-


tion and involvement of the peo-
ple! 'Of the people, by the people,
and for the people of Gulf
County." I plan to have monthly
meetings when I am available to
meet with members of the public
and hear their concerns and
ideas. I know that Gulf County is
going to grow. I believe that
planned and controlled growth is
best. For over 60 years Gulf
County has had a one industry
economy and I believe that this
area has much to offer, and we
can find some light industry to
locate here, that will offer jobs
that pay more than minimum
wage. Tourism alone is not the
answer.

Victory In Jesus
Don't fret over evil men,
or be envious of the things they do.
J Jsus will be the victor,
follow Him and you will too.
In many places to follow Him,
persecution may take place too.
Just take Him at His Word,
that He'll take care of you.
S*Most of us have never faced persecution,
for, our faith in Jesus today.
But you can believe the way Salon
working, it's not going to stay that way.
John saw a vision of things to come,
and maybe some of these we'll see.
But I'm not worried, I read the end of the
book, I know who the victor will be
We might have to suffer for Jesus,
before this life is through
Keep your faith in Jesus and your eyes on
the cross, there will be less pain if you do
Since we know who is going to win Ihe
victory, let's witness more each day.
You never know whose hell-bound path
might change,
by some kind word your soay

REV. JOHN ADKINS, PASTOR


A minister returned his defec-
tive car to the dealer. "What's
the matter?" asked the sales-
man. "Can't you run it?"
"Not and stay in the ministry,"
he answered.
When you buy a new car, and
it proves defective, you're in-
vited to return it to the manufac-
turer. He promises to make it
right, and he does.
Man, as man, is defective. His
life is wrong from the start. He
wants to do what's right, but he'
can't. He doesn't want to do
what's wrong,, but he does.
But he hears the Gospel. He
turns himself over to the Maker.
The wrong is righted. He
becomes a brand new person.
That's salvation.
Wouldn't you like to turn
yourself in to the Maker now?.

Sudden infant seath syn-
drome (SIDS) is the sudden and
unexplained death of an infant
under one year of age. SIDS,'
sometimes known as crib death,
strikes nearly 5,000 babies in the
United States every year. Doctors
and nurses don't know what
causes SIDS, but they have found
some things you can do to make
your baby safer.
One of the most important
things you can do to help reduce
the risk of SIDS is to put your
healthy baby on his or her back to
sleep. An alternate sleep position
is to allow your baby to sleep on
his or her side, making sure the
lower arm is forward to stop him
or her from rolling over onto the
stomach.
Check With Your
Doctor or Nurse
Most babies should sleep, on
their back. But a few babies have
health conditions that might
require them to sleep on their
tummy. If your baby was born
with a birth defect, often spits up
after eating, or has a breathing,
lung, or heart problem, be sure to
talkto a doctor or nurse about
which sleep position to use.
The Consumer Product Safety
Commission, the American
Academy of Pediatrics, and the
National Institution of Child
Health and Development recom-
mended the following steps to
ensure babies under 12 months
sleep safely: ,
* Place baby on his/her back on
a firm, tight-fitting mattress in
a crib, meeting current safety
standards.
* Remove pillow, quilts, com-

Labor: A Tribute To Businesses

Hats Off to Small Business-the Engine of the Economy


By Paulette Norvel Lewis,
Regional Advocate. U. S. Small
Business Administration
In 1894, when Grover
Cleveland designated the first
Monday in September as a
national holiday to honor the
labor movement, the United
States was just entering the
Industrial Age. Big business-and
its relationship with labor
unions-was considered the
future of the country.
But a funny thing happened
on the way to economic prosper-
ity. The small business, which
had formed the economic back-
bone of the country, continued to
quietly thrive, through good times
and bad. And today, small busi-
ness has re-emerged as the domi-
nant economic force in the United
States.'
Because small business
employs the majority of the labor
force and has created most of the
new jobs in the past three years,
we should also recognize these
contributions to American work-
ers on Labor Day.
As we enter the 21st Century,
America's 24 million small busi-
nesses continue to play an
impressive and vital role in our
dynamic economy. In 1998 alone,
over 888,000 firms were created.
American small businesses
employ more than 52 percent of
the country's private workforce
and are the principal source of
new jobs. Small businesses also
generate more than 51 percent of
the entire national gross domestic
product. /
The contributions of women-
owned businesses to this eco-
nomic progress deserve special
recognition since they outpace
other small business sectors in
growth and participate in every
industry. In 1997. there was an
estimated 8.5 million women-
owned businesses, accounting for
more than one-third of all busi-
ness and generating $3.1 trillion
in revenue.
Small business has taken full
advantage of the spectacular eco-
nomic expansion-the longest
peacetime expansion in the
nation's history. Since 1993, more


than 20 million new jobs have
been created-many of them with
help from the Small Business
Administration (SBA).
In addition to the SBA district
offices and resource partners,
small business has another pow-
erful, but perhaps less knpwn ally
on its side, the SBA Office of
Advocacy. Created by the
Congress in 1976 to be an inde-
pendent voice for small business,
the Office of Advocacy's role in
support of the small business is
wide-ranging. .
Advocacy has many responsi-
bilities, including examination of
the role, of small business in the
economy, measurement, of the
direct costs and other affects of
regulation on small business, and
proactive support of economic ini-
tiatives.
The work and impact of the
Office of Advocacy is greatly
strengthened. by its nationwide
network of Regional Advocates
who serve as a vital communica-
tions link between local small
business owners, trade associa-
tions. elected officials, and federal
agencies and the Washington,
D.C. office of its Chief Counsel.
"Advocacy plays a critical role
in the ongoing support of small
business, 'including the develop-
ment of recommendations for cre-
ating a legislative environment cut
in which small business can effec-
tively compete and create jobs,"
said SBA Regional Director, Billy
Max Paul.
Currently, the United. States
has the highest business start-up
rate in the world. This is because
the current strength of the econ-
omy has provided entrepreneurs
and potential entrepreneurs with
a sense of optimism and security.
There are, more open markets,
more access to capital and lower
interest rates.
Part of the access to equity
capital-and not merely credit-
that start-ups enjoy is directly
attributable to advocacy action on
their behalf. Advocacy's research ,
indicated that lack of' access to
equity capital was a barrier to the
growth of small business, and
that venture capital was flowing to


business enterprises which
required larger investments than:
small businesses needed.
As a result of this research
and input from small business
owners, the Office of Advocacy
created, ACE-Net an internet-
based system through which.
small firms can itemize their'
equity capital needs. Using a
secured password accredited'
investors can then access this
system to identify potential
investment opportunities. The
ACE-Net operator in the state of
Florida is the Moran Institute;
Tallahassee, and can be accessed
through the Internet at www.ace-,:
net.srunh.edu or www.sba.gov/
ADVO.
Creating or expanding a busi-
ness is a difficult endeavor and
the entrepreneur not only needs
quality financial management and
technical assistance, but also
strong support on regulatory and
policy matters such as that pro-
vided by. the Office of Advocacy.
Both the. Small Business
Administration and the SBA
Office of Advocacy are committed
to providing the support that
small business needs to grow and
thrive.
So, as we appropriately~cele-
brate Labor Day, we also take our
hats off to small business, the
engine of our dynamic economy.

Survey shows teachers rule


Remember that one teacher who
had an impact on your life? She taught
you' more than what was in a textbook.
She taught you confidence in yourself,
taking responsibility and sticking with
a job until it's finished.
You're not alone., According to a
new survey, a whopping 86 percent of'
Americans credit their K-12 teachers
for the life skills that helped them
become successful adults.
"Despite predictions about online
learning replacing live educators,
Americans are not ready to accept
technology as a substitute teacher,"
said Louis G. Lower II, president and
CEO of Horace Mann Educators
Corporation, sponsor of the national,
survey on the impact of K-12 education
.and teachers.
The attention 'of a caring teacher -
taking a personal interest, listening,
making learning interesting and holding
students to high standards was much
more important to success in adult life
than the subjects being taught, the
survey respondents said.
The three R's are crucial, but when
asked to name the most valuable
:lessons learned from their grade school
education, Americans cited taking
responsibility for personal beha\ ior,
problem solving and learning to work
as part of a team.
Half of Americans pointed to one
specific educator Whose influence back
then still impacts their lives, today.
Nearly 80 percent said this was .a
teacher rather than a coach, principal
or counselor.


"Teachers are role models that
computer could ever be," Lower sa
"Through this survey, Americans
telling us, loud and clear, that the 1
lessons and personal values teach
impart are absolutely essential
success, later in life. ,
When asked how they would
through to students today if they w
teaching, Americans' would use
personal touch over a flicker
computer monitor in ioda
classrooms. Showing an interest
each student's work, demonstrate
respect for. students and expecting
receive it in return, enforcing stro
codes of conduct and behavior; a
being entertaining all ranked hig
than using a lot of new technology
being a strict disciplinarian.'
Comparing their own sch
experience with that of their ki
" Americans lament' more negat
student attitudes, including a lack
respect and a rise in school violen
Other changes some positive, so
negative include greater-availabi
of technology, less discipline, great
educational opportunities, smai
classrooms and less student/teac
interaction.
