56% of others Cast Ballots



Birmingham, Kelley, and Quinn Take 1st Primary Victories


Fifty six percent of Gulf
County's registered voters made
their way to the polls Tuesday to
begin the two month process of
deciding who will.represent them
for the next four years in several
local county offices and commis-
sion/board seats.
A total of 5,520 of Gulfs
9,837 voters cast ballots for the
candidates of their choice
Tuesday, and, of that total. 809
voters cast their votes via absen-
tee ballot. Gulf County Supervisor
of Elections Cora Sue Robinson
said as far as she knew this was
the largest number of absentee
ballots ever cast in Gulf County.
During the first primary elec-
tion there were three clear win-
nets in county races.
Douglas C. Birmingham
recorded 51.33% of the vote with
2,772 to narrowly avoid a run-off
race for Gulf County Clerk of the
Circuit Court. Keith L. "Duke"
Jones recorded 1,948 votes
(36..07%); John W. "Johnny"
Stanley 514 votes (9.51%), and
Ted Cannon. 166 votes (3.07%) as
the other candidates in the four
manirace.
During a short telephone
interview with Birmingham, he
offered his thanks to the voters of
Gulf County, "I'm extremely
thrilled the people put their faith
in us."
He said he looked forward to
giving the public his best as he
serves as their clerk of the court.
Superintendent of Schools
Jerry E. Kelley took 53.85% of the
vote with 2.844 in his victory over
Martha Weimorts who received
2.437. votes.

Kelley went on to express his
appreciation to the people who
went out to vote. "We've got to do

County and I appreciate the privi-
lege to have four more years to
help accomplish some of these '
things," he said.
Billy Charles Quinn, Jr. was
.the clear winner in the District 4
School Board race with 516 of the
771 ,votes cast in that race.
Damon McNair, Jr. received 160
votes and Charles L. Gathers 95
votes to round out the three man
race total.
Quinn said he was excited
that voters have elected him. "God
has really blessed me," he added.
He went on to thank voters
for entrusting him with the
responsibilities of the school
board position. Helping all stu-
dents become the very best they
can be was one of Quinn's majqp
goals.

Nearly 100 folks, joined U.S. because Congress mandated the W e com e Gul oun y lues.

Congressman Alien oyda ast
Thursday evening for a "town
meeting" on the Apalachicola
River.


Cong. Boyd addresses those
attending the town meeting.
Wewahitchka's Community
Building was packed with area
residents ,who are concerned
about the fate of the river and
wanted to get a firsthand under-
standing of what some of the most
recent new developments mean.
Both Congressman Boyd and
U.S. Senator Bob Graham have
unveiled plans to deauthorize
dredging on the Apalachicola for
navigational purposes. During the
meeting, Boyd explained that leg-
islation was being introduced,
supported by he and Graham, to
ask Congress to deauthorize the
channel.
This action will be required


navigational channel in the first
place.
"Dredging the river for naviga-
tional purposes is clearly not in
the best economic and environ-
mental interest of Florida,"
Congressman Boyd stated.
During Thursday's .meeting,
Boyd outlined the process for
those folks present and .fielded,
questions concerning the river.
Buck Ernest, project manager,
for the river from the Army' Corps
of Engineers (COE), spent several
minutes reviewing the history of
COE's dredging and problems
associated with it-most of which
revolved around the dispersion of
spoil sand.'
Ted Hoehn. biologist for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, also
talked about the dredging prac-
tices, but more from the perspec-
tive of the State of Florida.
Several points were made
during the question and answer
session. Boyd rioted that COE
Secretary Westphal has issued a
recommendation supporting
deauthorization. Agreement from
the COE that the practice is not
economically feasible should
carry weight as legislators begin
to review legislation to stop dredg-
ing along the waterway.
The proposal engineered by
Boyd and Graham also will help
increase stocks of sportsfish and
protect the many endangered
species that inhabit the river and
its banks. The legislation also
calls for the Corps to develop a
long-term plan for restoration.
In a recent press release
about the legislation, Boyd stated,

Gulf County Shipbuilding
received a formal welcome into
the business community of the
county Tuesday morning,
September 5th, during welcoming
ceremonies at the Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce offices.-
Owner John Dixon and mem-
bers of his staff were honored for
their commitment to. bringing
Gulf County Shipbuilding and
new job' opportunities to Port St.
Joe and the surrounding area.
Also honored in the ceremony
were the many individuals whose
hard work and dedication to con-
tinuing the development of Gulf
County helped make this develop-
ment possible.
"As we welcome Gulf County
Shipbuilding, we should be proud
of the way our community has
been able to work together to
make this day possible," said
Diane Scholz, executive director
of the Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce. "For almost two years,
we have fought for rezoning, road
funds and expanded infrastruc-
ture, which has resulted in a sig-
nificant step towards improving
the long-term economic viability
of Gulf County."
According to Dixon, his coim-
pany conducted an exhaustive
search for the shipyard, consider-
ing dozens of sites along the
Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coast-
line, from south Georgia to New
Orleans.
"Shipbuilding is a trade that
builds a sense of pride and
requires skill and a dedication to
excellence," said Dixon. "When we
initially considered Port St. Joe,
we were first impressed by its
skilled workforce and the poten-
tial shipyard site itself, but as we


looked more closely at the area, it
was the. sense of community-and
community pride-that was the
deciding 'factor in locating the
facility here."
The 'baseline work for Gulf
County Shipbuilding will be con-
structing cruise ships for its sister
company, Fort Lauderdale-based
Nekton Cruises, with three
Nekton ships planned for comple-
tion in the next two years. Dixon
also anticipates expanding the
companyis work to shipbuilding
for other small cruise lines in the
next 12 to 18 months.


At the shipyard, site work
already has started on the cominpa-
ny's first pr6ject-the Nekton
Rorqual-a multi-million dollar
SWATH design' vessel that, is the
first sister. ship to the Nekton
Pilot, which Nekton Diving
Cruises has been operating for
more than six years in the
Bahamas and Belize.
The shipyard also will be pro-
viding biannual dry-dock services
for the Nekton Pilot later this fall.
Gulf County Shipbuilding is .
located on a 10-acre land parcel
at the end of Old Dynamite Dock


Road on the Gulf County Canal,
near the Intracoastal Waterway.
The company purchased the land
from The St. Joe Company.
"The St. Joe Company under-
stood the importance of bringing
industry and jobs into Gulf
County, and, along with St. Joe
Commercial, went above and
beyond our expectations as an
advocate for our company," said
Dixon.
"'This is a very exciting time.
for Gulf County;" said Clay

Q1 PAGETWO THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2000


Hunker Down With Kes


by Kesley Colbert


SPoor, Deprived Youth!


Biggest Paper Ever


"With A Little Help

From Our Friends"
The Star passed a major milestone with last week's
"Election 2000" edition of the paper.. As we closed in on our
63rd anniversary, last week's paper was the largest standard
sized newspaper we've printed during that time span-with 36
pages plus two inserts.
We have printed a few tabloid size inserts along with the
regular edition of The Star that totaled 36 pages and more. but
it takes two tabloid pages to equal one standard newspaper
size page-so those don't count.
Also, I received more favorable comments about the elec-
tion edition of the paper than I have about any other single
issue of The Star we've ever produced.
Folks were most appreciative of our efforts to give voters
one more look at candidates before they cast their ballots.
Candidates also took advantage of the pre-election issue to
make one last advertising plea to those same voters.
If printing the paper was all we did, or if we regularly put
out editions the size of last week's paper, the record edition
might have been a little easier for us to do. But, this is not the
case. I caught myself humming the words to that old Beatles'
song one evening about midnight--"eight days a week ." I
left off the lyrics that talked about "love" though!
I do need to take this opportunity to thank the staff of The
Star for hanging in there waayyyy beyond the call of duty. It
was no accident that every candidate response to our ques-
tionnaire and accompanying photograph was in the paper. One
of the ladies who works with us logged in 83 hours during that
one week period-and all put in more than their fair share of
work!
I used to kid our employees when they would ask if The
Star was going to be closed on Labor Day-"/ thought Labor
Day meant you were supposed to work."
I was afraid to do much kidding this Labor Day for fear I
might be Monday's bar-b-que!



Great Festival & Slam


Thanks To All!

Labor Day weekend brings with it the annual Scallop
Festival and fishing SLAM, and while this might not have been
a banner year for scallops, the festival went on without a hitch.
Once again, the tourist development tax. or "bed tax,"
showed just how valuable it can be in helping to promote these
types of activities. The Tourist Development Council joined in
to help the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce and Port St.
Joe Marina put on the Second Annual Cobia Boat/Yamaha
Saltwater Fishing Tournament which awarded over S 15,000 in
cash and prizes.
The weekend long events brought numerous people to the
area-all of which seemed to be having a wonderful time.
It was obvious that much time had gone into planning and
making preparations for these events. Volunteers of all ages
were pitching in at one. or some even at both events, to help
make them a success.
We've all heard it said about volunteer type work "Ten
percent of the people volunteer to do 90%o of the work." Our
community owes a debt of gratitude to all the folks who helped
make this Labor Day weekend such a huge success.


We were just born way too late.,
Me and Ricky Gene and Buddy,
Wiggleton used to sit in our Little
League dugout during slow
moments and wonder if Mr. Gooch
could beat up Mr. Lansing. We'd
try to figure in our diabolical pea
brains if there wasn't some way we
could precipitate a clash between
the two.


Isn't that the way life goes.' We
worked to get something going"
between the grow)n- u p back then.
Today. parents run ,out on the field
and go to dukmg it out over the
slightest provocation. Gol-lee, we
would ha'e done anything to ha'.e
seen-them old farmers and truck
drivers come flying down out of the
stands .
Progress is a wonderful thing!
I saw in the paper just this
past week where twenty adults
piled into a T-ball field and
brawled it outright in front of
every five and six year old in the
game.
You talk about a sight to


behold! Shucks, it's one I've had to
live without! All I can do is dream.

And let me tell yVIu. Joe Go':'ch
was a big man' RJi'ky guessed him
once to be seven feet tall. He had
giant arms and he \eiehed a ton!
Mr. Alton Lansing wasn t no
midget, 'himself! I once saw him
pick up a bale of hay in each hand
and toss'em up in that wagon like
they were a bag of feathers.
It could have been the clash of
the titans! Buddy always allowed
that Mr. Gpoch would take him
just on' size alone. But I don't
know. J never heard Mr.. Lansing
say much, but he iust looked like


the type you'd better not ever rile.
I know Mr. Gooch had a tern-.
per. They just lived a short piece
from us. And if Joe-Joe or Richard
didn't cut the grass to suit him or
they weren't picking that okra.
quite as fast as he thought suit-,
able. he'd light a fire under them!
When Joe-Joe pitched for ps
we'd try to get him to throw at
Charlie Lansing. We figured one up
side the head might set Mr. Alton.
off.
There was a slight flaw in the-.
plan-Little Joe couldn't hit the'
broad side of a barn and Charli.e
was nowhere .like the size of his
father. He finally managed to graze
him one night and very head on.
our team immecdately jerked
toward the stands.
Mr. Lansing never even
twitched. ,
I heard him say after the ganfe
(when Charlie was, trying to milk '
little sympathy out of the bruise)
that he'd seen people slapped away
from the supper table harder than
that!
He and Mr. Gooch walked out
to their trucks together alternately,.
discussing hog prices and the_-
weather.
You talk about out-of-it, back-.
wards, ignorant, dirt clod farmers,.
Our parents talked to us about'
sportsmanship. And then demon-'
strated it when we all got together!.
That used to make me so mad.'
Mom and Dad would cheer for us.'
But if Bobby Jack Cantrell made a'
diving catch of my headed-for-left-
field line drive, they'd cheer for,
him too. They appreciated a good
play, no matter who made it .,.
Let me tell you howv dumb they,
were. If Cecil Hartung let a ground,
ball go right through his legs .at
third and the winning run scored,
for our team-my folks didn't,
cheer at all. And Mr. Gooch didn't
clap. And neither did Buddy's,or:
Ricky Gene's parents. People, 'rm
talking about the winning runt!!,
They were not going to celebrate at.
little Cecil's expense.
It would near 'bout make me
puke.
How in the world are you going
to get people like that down out of
the stands to do a little fighting in
front of you?
They wouldn't even fuss over a,
bad call. They acted like they were'
just happy that Mr. Millraney;
would volunteer to umpire. We.
were riding home after a particu-'
larly rough game. "He called met
out on a ball that was six feet.
inside!" I was mad and I didn't care
who knew it! 'That cost us the?
game. We had two men in scoring ;
position. He never has liked me! It'
all goes back-"
"Son," Dad had heard enough
whining, "if you swung at anything
else like you did the 3-1 pitch in
the dirt, you weren't going to hit it
anyway."
I think part of the problem
back in those days was most of our

"We" Are Particularly Choosy Where "We" Nod Off


DID YOU EVER take a sleep
test? You know, pay somebody,
especially a doctor and a hospi-
tal, to tell you whether or not you
are sleeping properly; and if not,
what it will take in order for you
to get a good night's rest.
One of my doctors recom-
mended a sleep test for- me when
I went to sleep while waiting for
him to come into the examining
room and ask, "How are you
doing?"
"Do you fall asleep easily?"
I had to tell him I could fall
asleep with it thundering!
"I think you need a sleep test
for apnea if you fall asleep that
easily."
I thought he was teasing me,
but this past Monday I found out
he was serious. I reported to Bay
Medical Center to spend the.
night and take my sleep test.

THE NURSE HOOKED me
up to all kinds of electrodes and I
started my test.


I had to take off my clothes
and don one of those sexy hospi-
tal gowns. You know the kind I
mean, the ones which leave the
entire rear end" at the mercy of
the world and everybody who
happens to be looking.
I didn't strip completely,
however. I didn't take my socks
off, nor my underwear shorts. I
maintained some sort of dignity.
I was wired up with elec-
trodes till I looked like the man
from outer space.
If I so much as belched, I
must have set off something akin
to a four alarm fire alarm. I was
careful not to belch!

I TOSSED AND and turned
for most of the night for fear of
what I might say in my sleep.
I forgot to tell you-one of the
reasons I was taking this test was
at the urging of my wife who codm
plained I was talking in my sleep,
and she didn't know what I was
saying or talking about.
The first half of the night, IJ
was wired up .and couldn't get to
sleep for. anything. "I'm cured qf
dropping off to sleep," I thought.
I couldn't doze off for anything.
, The nurse gave me instruc-
tions to wave my hand in front of
my face to attract her attention, if
I needed anything.

freezing to death, so I waved! .

After, waving futilely for a
time or so, I stood up in bed and,
waved some more. At least the
activity kept me warmer.

AFTER A WHILE the old
hospital habit kicked in. I dozed
fitfully for a second or so, so it
was time for the attending nurse
to wake me up and ask me how I
was sleeping, and .did I wish to
try their air mask for a while.
I said, "It doesn't matter
about the air mask, but I would
like another blanket to keep from
freezing."
She got me another blanket .
and the air mask!

times a night to see whether

Wildlife Education Center Election
Oledio


Being C

Port St. Joe city commission-
ers seemed willing, to, help the St.
joe Wildlife Sanctuary and
Educational Center group in
efforts to establish an educational
center on' city property near St.
Joseph Bay pn the Vicinity of the
marina. "' '
Marie .Steele-Romanelli
approached the board requesting
the city help the wildlife sanctu-
aiy grdup by offering' a: favorable
arrangement or property to locate
an educational center in a higher.
traffic area for public exposure to
their mission.:
The group has received a 20-
acre site from The 'St. Joe
Company on which to locate the
'i'l'dlife rehabilitation center.
Emergency treatment, research,
and care for injured, diseased,.
and. orphaned native wildlife will
take place at that site which will
be' located just off, Highway 71
* north of Port St. Joe.
This site will also have riature
tils' open to 'he public and will
dtsplay non-re easeable wildlife in
as natural a setting as possible.

wduld have larided in the conces-
sioh stand."
I ran over Cecil one night
rotYnding *third just because he
was 'standing there. My Mother
made me apologize to him after the
game! I had to look him right in the
eye-when I said "I'm sorry." To this
day it is sLill one of the most
humiliating moments .of my entire
career. : .
I guarantee you fve.never for-
gotten it.
And when we got home that
night I had to listen to the "other
people have rights and feelings"
speech. We won! Why couldn't we
j just celebrate a victory? I tell you,
parents like that could affect you
for life .
S "Course. I reckon those out
.there on the field today scratching
and fighting and clawing right in
S front of their 'six year olds also
have an effect .
Yes Sir and Yes Ma'amn.,


Dnsidered

An education center is an
important part of the wildlife,
rehabilitation project and the
group feels that they would be
better served, as well as open
doors for future marine animal
reserve efforts, by having a por-
tion of their facilities located clos-
er to St. Joseph Bay.
Mayor Pate asked the group
to meet with mertibers of the
Downtown Redevelopment Agency
to review the plans.
Sewer Study
; The board unanimously
agreed to go ahead with a feasibil-
ity study for a land application
sewage treatment system. Preble-
Rish, Inc. engineer Philip Jones
outlined the system to the board
as an affordable alternative for
future sewage treatment.
The board hopes to have
plans in place and apply for leg-
islative/state assistance for the
sewer improvements during next
year's session.

In August, Gulf County
Shipbuilding received approved
permits from the Department of
Environmental Protection and the
Corps of Engineers for full site
development of the shipyard.
Currently, the company is
.. digging a 200-foot by .300-foot
basin and a 600-foot by 80-foot
marine rail slipwayy. When the
excavation and dredging are com-
pleted this October, over 60,000
cubic feet of sand will have been
moved.
As part of the agreement to
bring Gulf County Shipbuilding to
Gulf County, The St. Joe
Company has deeded to Gulf
County a 1.9-mile roadway that
leads to the' shipyard S from
Highway 71.' The Florida State *
Legislature has approved funds
for improvements to the road.
The road will provide tremen-
dous benefit for Gulf County's
economic development. Once
paved, it will. give Gulf County
nearly four miles of ;developable
property with road-front footage,
and access to Highway 71, the
Intracoastal Waterway, and near-
by rail service.
Gulf County Shipbuilding
currently has expanded to 22
workers on the shipbuilding crew.
Those employment numbers are
expected to grow t6 approximate-
ly 61 employees as the company
production goes on line with the
completion of the boat basin.

G ulf County needs a new
beginning in economic
development, a renewed
effort to look for the right
kinds of employment opportu-
nities. As we recover spiritually
and economically from the dif-
ficulties of recent years, we.
need to seek economic devel-
opmentt that leads to .secure,
well-paying jobs, in fields that.
are compatible with bur
community values.-.
W'Te have to work harder
W W and smarter to recruit
the employment opportunities
to Gulf County which will
enable our neighbors and
children to have the choice to
work in Gulf County, and not
have to move away to make a
,living as my son and so many
of our friends and neighbors
have had to do.
W e must establish a clear
vision of what kinds of
employment we wish to devel-
op. We need leadership to step
forward and provide a sense of
direction to our efforts.


"WTe cannot afford to wan-
V der aimlessly in search-
ing for any random business
that may choose to show up,
and then .-allow them to
attempt to exploit 'the work
force and.: community resources
for profits alone.
R1 recruitment of new busi-
ness and industry can, and
should be a highly selective
process. We can be picky about
the types of jobs we want to
see in Gulf County, and we can
target. the companies we want
to attract, with the meaningful
incentives that are important.
We should be Focusing on high
skills-high wages. jobs, in the
industries with which we
choose to share our
community.
W should be pulling
together as a Count.
and community, with a full-
time, dedicated effort, and
invest the resources necessary
to build a better job base for
our future.

SI School Age Health

Problems
Why does a seemingly normal child have difficulty in
learning? The first thing to test is the, child's' hearing and
vision. Poor hearing can go undetected at home because
many hard of hearing children can hear deep sounds, but not
those of higher pitch. They can hear "most" of what is said.
Vision, if deficient, can usually be corrected easily by the
use of glasses.
Mental retardation and certain nervous system prob-
lems also can be determined and special education -and
medication arranged. Poor nutrition, anemia, lack of sleep,
and chronic infections can also interfere with a child's abili-
ty to learn.

m


The Port St. Joe Sharks could
not overcome five offensive
turnovers and a few crucial penal-
ties as they fell to the Navarre
Raiders 20-14 in Friday night's
regular season opener.
"I was disappointed for our
kids," said head coach Chuck
Gannon. 'They played hard the
entire game- there were times
when we could have given up, but
we kept,battling."
After recovering a fumble by
Port St. Joe quarterback Seneca
Chambers on the Sharks 45 yard
line, Navarre's Frank Willis broke
free for a 27 yard touchdown run.
The Raiders added the extra point
to take a 7-0 lead with 10:15 left
in the first quarter.
The Sharks rebounded on
their ensuing possession, when
Reggie Quinn capped off a 60 yard
dnme with a two yard touchdown
run. Corey Butler's extra point
attempt failed as Port St. Joe nar-
,rowed Navarre's lead to 7-6 with

touchdown. The Raiders added
the extra point to take a 14-6 lead
with 11:23 left in the first half of
play.
The Sharks threatened to
strike back on their following pos-
session, driving down inside the
Raiders' 10 yard line before turn-
ing the ball over on downs. ,
Navarre scored its final touch-
down of the game after recovering
another Port St. Joe fumble in
great position. The Sharks'
Rashed Brown fumbled a punt
return, which the Raiders recov-
ered on the Port St. Joe 30 yard
line., Raider quarterback Zack
Cook hooked up Andre Ma. one

was called back on a clipping
penalty behind the play.
Port St. Joe turned- the ball
back over to Navarre on downs,
and the Raiders ran out the
remaining time on the clock for
the victory.
"We beat then in stats overall,
but we turned the ball over too
many times. We can't do that
against teams that are pretty
equal with us and win," added
Gannon.

Reggie Quinn led Port St.
Joe's, rushing game with 109
yards on 14 carries and two
touchdowns. Lamar Patterson fol-

Jacob Tankersley. led the
defensive unit with 12 solo tack-
les, eight assists (20 total) and two
sacks. Tyson Davis and Lamar
Patterson each had four solos and
seven assists for 11 total tackles.
"We had a couple of players
with good individual perfor-


mances. Reggie Quinn ran the
ball hard, and Jacob Tankersley
did a good job inside on defense-
had 20 tackles and was around
the ball all night," added Gannon.
Port St. Joe travels to Talla-
hassee this Friday night to take
on the Florida High Seminoles at
7:30 ET.
"Florida High is a quick ball
team with good speed. They're not

Say you Saw It In 'The Star'


Use God's Power
-When Jesus left, the Spirit,
came just like He said it would.
They could do nothing on
their ori. but through the Holy
Spirit they could.
While waiting for the Spirit,
much prayer was lifted up.
The Lord being trueto His
Word just over lowed their cup.,
While praying iii the upper
room, they heard the sound of a
mighty wind.
What seemed, to be tongues.
of fire came to rest on each one
then. .
120 people speaking many in
a different tongue.
Many miracles were per-
formed and about three thou-
sand souls were won.
The Holy Spirit.is still at
work.
*We need that heavenly power.
because people are dying and
going to hell each. and every;
hour.
Wake us up and stir us Lord.
.We're lazy but we care.
We who have the Spirit. Lord
help us more to share.

News for the Week
The Port St. Joe High School
NJROTC Unit is off to a busy start
this year. We have already pre-
sented the colors at two home
football games. The new cadets
'are learning how to honor our
country by raising the flag and
presenting the colors.
This past week many of our
cadets were volunteers at the St.
Joe Marina Fishing Tournament.
Reports were that they did a great
job and had a lot of fun helping
out. We are always hoping we will
be asked .to contribute to our
community activities.
Our annual water survival.
training exercise at Wakulla
Springs is, this Friday. All cadets
from Port St. Joe and Wewa will
be having a great time at the
beginning to the school year get
together. Our drill team and color
guard is practicing every Monday
and Wednesday after school in
preparation for Veteran's Day and.
future home football games.

2000-2001
I sat pondering.how to begin this
week's article since my dear friend
Susan seems to have graciously
summed it all up for me in the last two
articles. I decided upon a quote by
Mark Twain,: "Twenty years from now
you will be more disappointed by the
things you didn't do than by the ones
you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail:
away from the safe harbor. Catch the
trade winds in your sails. Explore.
Dream."
As a kind of tribute to my fellow.
seniors, I feel led to leave a few words
of wisdom each week and begin a tra-
dition. Seniors, we are at a turning
point in our lives. We have to make
decisions and take chances in the,
game of life. Don't be afraid to lose
sight of the shore. You must do'so in
order to discover new oceans. What's
the use in dreaming if you never make
it reality? So set your sails and begin
the journey.
With regard to seniors I com-
mence with our news. Mr. Lanford will
be taking graduation announcement
orders on September 18. You will need
a $75 deposit. If your order is less than
this amount, you will need to pay in
full.
Senior parents, you are reminded
of yearbook ads. You can buy any-
where from a quarter of a page to a
whole page to recognize your student.
For more Information contact the year-
book sponsor, Pat Lowery. Also, Mrs.
Ramsey will begin meeting with you
and your parents at the beginning of
October to discuss post-secondary
plans and scholarships..
Parents: You have five days
after your student's absence to turn
In an excuse note. Also, parents, you
can expect progress 'reports ito come
home on Tuesday, 'September 12.
The guidance office would like to
remind students of-the SAT and ACT
test dates. and deadlines. Deadline for
the October 28 ACT at PSJHS is
September 22. The October 4 SAT,' is
also to be held at PSJHS, has a dead-
line of September 12. For more infor-'
mation on SAT/ACT tests, you can

Officer Burch Visits

Faith Christian School


Officer Rusty Burch visited
the kindergarten class at Faith
Christian school as part of their
lesson on Community Helpers.
Officer Burch explained the
Police Department's role in the
community. He explained that it's
not only their job to "catch the
bad guy", as most of the students'
voiced, but help'those in. need of"
emergency care, give support to
town festivities, and keep the
community safe.
He also shoWed the students
equipment used in their daily jbb
as well as the police vehicle along
with lights and sirens. It was a big

night and to sign and return all
test papers. This is our means of
constant communication with our
parents.
It is our earnest desire for all
students to achieve and to do
their very best. The unofficial
Bible verse for Faith Christian has
been II Timothy 2:15, "Study to
show thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be
ashamed, rightly dividing the
word of truth."

happens every Monday and
Wednesday during our AA from
10:03 to 10:32. If at, all possible,


,we: would appreciate no phone

whole school can "drop everything
and read."
One final thing this week is
also for the parents. If you are
interested in becoming a volun-
Ateer for the Port Sti Joe Middle
School, please contact Juanise
Williams at 227-3211. We really
need volunteers for a variety of
activities. We know that there are
many of you parents out there

that would benefit our school.
: That's all the news for this
week. So have a great week and
weekend and know that "For
every 60 seconds of anger, you
lose one minute of happiness."

The JV team traveled to
Liberty Couhty last Thursday and

Christmas presents, t-shirts, and
give-away tickets are just some of
those items that will be sold to

Major plans have been made
for Homecoming. I trust that you


Research shows. that by the
end of elementary school, the
average Amnerican child will have
witnessed 8,000. murders and
100,000 acts of violence on televi-
sigh. Mental health professionals
fear that this may desensitize
children to violence. An alarming
increase in juvenile delinquency
lends additional credence to the'
theory.
The link between TV and real-
life violence ,is indisputable. In
fact, the TV industry made a tacit
admission of its concern' by
recently agreeing to reduce vio-
lence in programming. Congress
is also considering legislation that
would impose stricter controls on
television violence. That's good,
but what .can the parent do to
address the program? Here's a
few tips:
Set an example. In many
households the TV runs constant-
ly even when no one'is Watching.
Select specific programs and
refrain from watching "adult" pro-
grams when children are present.
Don't use TV as a babysit-
ter. Encourage interest in puz-
zles, board games, art projects.
and reading.
Reject all forms of violence
in your home. Ban videotapes.
video :games, music, and reading
materials which have a violent
theme.
Schedule daily activities.
Plan an after-school schedule
which limits TV viewing to small
blocks of time. ----. .-
Use TV to teach. Children I
interpret what they see differently
than adults. Discuss what is fac-
tual and what is fictional with
your child. Make certain they can
distinguish between the two.
Monitor what is viewed.
Tune in to what your children are
watching and intervene if the -
material is inappropriate..
Look for good television. All
programming does not promote
violence. There are excellent pro-
grams available which can enrich
the lives of children. Take the
'time-to find them.


are planning to join us on October
6th for the game and all of the
other events that will be. sur-
rounding that date. Our under-'
-standing right now is that there'
will be an alumni dinner at the
school on Thursday the 5th.
There will be a hospitality room
set up for alumni at the school on
Friday frdm 11:00 until 12:30.
Please check us out at our web
site www.gulf.k12.fl.us for more
and updated details. Of course,
that applies to all our other school
activities as well.'
Our annual fall Open House
will be next Tuesday, September
12th. Join for an. informal time at
the school beginning at 6:30 p.m
until about 8:00. This is a chance
to cruise -the school and meet
teachers and become more
acquainted with curriculum and
'procedures.
Another Open House, this
time for fine arts, drama, and aca-
demic activities is also in the
works. We'll keep you posted.
Our school advisory council is
scheduled to meet on September
19, at 6:30 p.m (This is a correct-
ed date from last weekly) Come and

Nutritional Top Ten
Within the past couple years,
most Americans have learned that
incorporating oats into one's diet
can significantly reduce the risk of,
coronary heart disease, lower cho-,
lesterol and stabilize blood sug-:
ars. Smith and many. other-
nutritionists and doctors say it's a
great food to include in your diet.
But, it's not the only one..
According to Smith, there are nine.
other 'essential foods that cart
enhance one's energy and reduce
one's risk to a number of leading,
diseases and ailments.
Smith's Nutritional Top Ten,,'
in order, includes: 1); oats; 2). soy-.
beans; 3) tomatoes; 4) coldwater
seafood, such as salmon or cod: 5)
flaxseed; 6) garlic: 7) hot peppers;
81 sweet potatoes; 9) grapes; and
10) cruciferous vegetables, such'
as broccoli, cabbage and Brussels'
sprouts. 'Studies have shown that'
certain foods pack a more power-"
ful punch than others when it"
comes to wellness," Smith says.
"If you're' just eating: to lose
weight, gain weight or because it's
dinnertime, you're missing an
important element of eating.Some
foods are- loaded with nutritional.
components. In other words, food
can be .medicine,' assisting your
body with its natural healing
process, enhancing your moods
and boosting your energy levels."
For example, tomatoes, Smith
points out, which many North,
Americans consume on a daily
basis through salads, spaghetti,
pizza sauce and ketchup, are an
excellent source of lycopene. A
powerful antioxidant, lycopene is
a carotenoid that fights the
uncontrolled growth of cells into'
tumors. It fights cancer of the'
colon,, bladder,, pancreas and,
prostate.
Another important, easy-to-
access food is hot peppers, which
are often used in Mexican, Tex-
Mex, Thai, Indian and Chinese
cooking. Hot peppers contain cap-
saicin, a vital immune-booster
that's important in cutting the
risk of stomach cancer.
Soy in the News .
Interestingly, one food on
Smith's Top Ten list that's gaining
a great deal of interest lately is
-soybeans. "In late October, the
United. States Food and Drug.
Administration (FDA) issued an
announcement that food contain-_
ing soy protein included in a diet
low in saturated fat and choles-
terol helps reduce the risk of heart
disease by lowering blood choles- '
terol levels.
Scientific studies show that
25 grams of soy protein daily sig- '
nificantly lowers cholesterol. In,.',
fact, in a recent study conducted :
by the Wake Forest University
School of Medicine, and reported
in the September 27, 1999 issue ,
of Archives of Internal Medicine,
people who consumed soy prod-
ucts with the greatest amounts of
plant estrogens or isoflavones dis-
played substantial drops, in low-
density lipoprotein (LDL, or "bad")'.
cholesterol and total cholesterol .
According to, Smith, soy
impacts health .in many. other,
ways as well: The bioacti\ e ingre-
dients in soy products suppress
the formation of blood vessels that'
feed cancer cells," she says,. "Soyii
helps stabilize hormone levels in t

women, as well as decrease the
risk of heart disease, osteoporo-
sis, and ovarian, breast and
prostate cancers."
However, unlike some of the
other foods on Smith's Top Ten,
when most people think soy, they
don't always relate it to good
taste. And, according to -a study
by Health Focus, Inc., a firm
'based in Des Moines, Iowa, that
specializes in consumer health
trends, nearly half-of all people
'surveyed said they would not give
Sup good taste for health reasons.
"Just because it's good for
you doesn't mean people will eat
or drink it," says Steve Demos,
president of White Wave, a
:Boulder; Colorado company that
has been making soy-based food
products for more than 22 years.
"We know that to some people, the
mere mention of the word soy pro-
duces a 'yucky' face reaction.
That's why, over the years,, we've
created products like that taste
great and are easy to incorporate
into your diet."
Demos says soymilk can be
consumed in a number of ways,
from simply drinking it, pouring it
on cereal, or using.it in recipes for
smoothies, puddings, and pie fill-
ings. Consumers can request two
free recipe brochures by calling
(303) 443-3470.
Balance is the Key
For healthier living
Balance is the key. says
Smith. It's .not good to consume
too much of any one food. Rather,
it's best to cut back or eliminate
foods and beverages that are not.
good for you and gradually substi-
tute them with foods on Smith's
Nutritional Top Ten.
"Most people can't sustain an
overnight change inri their diet,"
says Smith, "That's why. many
'fad' diets come and go." Instead of
drinking four cups of coffee in the
morning, Smith suggests trading
one of those cups for a glass of
tomato juice. Rather than pouring
milk on your sugar-coated cereal,
consider trying vanilla-flavored
soy milk on a bowl of oat cereal.
Or, replace a strawberry milk-
shake with a fresh fruit smoothie.
In addition, Smith adds, it's
important to balance healthy eat-
ing with moderate exercise, plenty
of sleep, and stress reducing
" activities. ."Take it.stp,,by step,
Sand you'll start to .notice the dif-,
ference," says'Smith. "'Your waist-
v line will start to shrink. You'll feel
more awake. Less stressed, out:


Simply ,more alive. And that's
what it's all about." The
Nutritional Top Ten
1. Oats: The b-glucan in
whole, oats reduces the risk of.
coronary heart disease. The solu-
ble fiber is instrumental in lower-
ing cholesterol and stabilizing
blood sugars.
2. Soybeans: The bioactive
i.ngrediepts in soy protein prod-
ucts suppress the formation of
blood vesselss that feed cancer
cells. Soy helps stabilize hormone"
levels,: in women, as well as
decrease the risk of heart disease,
osteoporosis' and ovarian, breast,
and prostate cancers.
3.. Tomatoes: Lycopene. a,
potent antioxidant is a carqtenoid
that fights the uncontrolled
growth, of cells into tumors.' It'
fights cancer of the colon, bladder,
pancreas, and prostate. Men who
eat ten 'servings of tomatoes per
week. ha\e .been showri. to
decrease' their prostate ,,cancer
risk by 66 percent.
4.,' Coldwater Seafood:
Healthy EPA/omega-3 oils are
shown to decrease risk of,.coro--
nary ,a-rtery disease, stabilize
blood, sugars, increase, brain
power, and' reduce the inflamma-
tory response, Seafood. reduces
LDL cholesterol arid triglycerides.
while raising levels of HDL.choles-
terol;-;' "'
5. Flaxseed: A unique source
of lignans,, powerful antioxidants
that are believed to stop cells from
turning cancerous. Flaxs.eed also
contains alpha-linolenic acid, the
plant' version of' the omega-3s
found in fish ,oils; it makes a
great, healthy option for people


who won't eat fish.. ;
6. Garlic: Rich, in allicin,
which boosts immune function'
'and reduces cancer risk. Garlic '
also has strong anti-viral effects
and has been shown to lower-
blood pressure and cholesterol'
levels. .
7. Hot Peppers: A source of
capsaicin, a.vital immune-booster, i
with powerful anti-viral effects.-
Capsaicin i- linked to decreased'-"'
risk of stomach cancer dtie to its
ability to neutralize nitrosamines,:
a cancer-causing compound'
formed in the body when cured oar,,
charred meats are consumed,-.,'
Capsaicin also' kills bacteria'-
believed to cause stomach ulcers.
8. Sweet: Potatoes: A rival of
carrots as a potent source of beta--
carotene ,and other carotenoid, ,
which help prevent.cataracts and, ,'
protect the body from: free radicals
and cancer particularly cancer of
the larynx, esophagus, and lungs.
9. Grapes: Grape skins corn-,'''
tain a high concentration 0
resveratrol, which appears to.
block the formation of coronary'
artery plaque, as well as tumor-
formation and growth. Red grape
juice or red, wine is considered a-
better source of rese'eratrol than'
white, which is made without the
grape skins .. ... ,
10. Cruciferous Vegetables:
Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and
Brussels sprouts contain indoles,.
sulforaphane, and isothio-'
cyanates, which protect cells froMri
damage by carcinogens, block,
tumor' formation, and help the
liver, to inactivate hormone-like
compounds that may promote,
cancer.:

fore he has changed the format of the meet-
ings in an effort to keep order. Commissioner
Stanley stated that he voted against the

,cussion by the public. Sally Malone stated

Navy Reinforces

Commitment To

College Education
The Navy has announced two
expanded education opportuni-
ties. The Navy -College
Assistance/Student Headstart
Program, or Navy CASH, will allow
qualified applicants, to attend a
college or university for up to a
full year after being sworn in to
the Navy, while receiving full Navy
pay and allowances. Selectees will
also receive a military ID card and
medical/dental benefits for them-
selves and any eligible family
members.
This program enables person-
nel to continue working toward a
degree at any accredited college or
university while waiting to go to
basic training. "This is a great
earn-while-you-learn program,"
said Rear Admiral Barbara E.
Mcdann, Commander, Navy
Recruiting Command. "It demon-
strates how much the Navy sup-
ports college education for its new
Sailors."
Enrollment in the Navy.CASH
program requires the applicant to
maintain full-time student status,
and completion (with a grade of C
or better) of one college-level alge-
bra course prior to reporting to
Recruit Training Command. In
addition to the CASH program,
qualified applicants may be eligi-
ble for up to $20,000 in enlist-
ment bonuses.

other exciting Navy opportunities,

Lawn Tips For

August & September
by: Roy Lee Carter,
County Extension Director
September marks the last
month to fertilize. In the case of
lawns, go with a moderate nitro-
gen type (that the first number is
between 10 and 16). A good choice
will be a 10-10-10 or 16-4-8.
Apply this at the rate of one
pound per 100 square feet. If
weeds have dogged your St.
Augustine or centipede all sum-
mer, September is really the first
month since June that tempera-
tures are likely to, be low enough
that a weed killer, properly
applied, should not injure the turf
itself.
The University of Florida, in
an attempt to encourage people to
use less chemicals to maintain at
landscape, suggest spot treating
those troubled spots in the" lan
where weeds are the greatest
.problem rather than treating the
whole lawn area. This is more cost
effective and environmentally
friendly. In light of this consider
spraying products applied only to
the weed spot rather than using a
weed and feed product to treat the
entire lawn. This would also be
healthier for the roots well beyond.
their dripline into surrounding
turf areas.
Research has Shown that
weedsare often an indication of
special soil problems. Correcting
those soil conditions may lead to
fewer of those weeds. Dollar-
weeds, sedges, and bindweed
indicate a poorly aerated soil.
Aerating the soil and cutting back
on water application to such areas
might help to reduce those weeds
without the repeated use of herbi-
cides. Maintain the pH between
5.5 and 6.5 for centipede or St
Augustine lawn grasses. Sand-
spurs are an indication of a soil
low in nitrogen. In most cases
doing a better job at maintaining
a proper soil moisture, nutrient
level and growing in the proper
amounts of light will all help to
reduce the incidence of weeds in a
lawn.
The presence or absence of
diseases can also be influenced by
the care grass is given. Two major
blades diseases on St. Augustine
occurring over the next few
months are brown patch and grey
leaf spot.
Check Bermuda and St.
Augustine grasses for infestations
of chinch bugs, armyworms, and
sob web worms during the
months of August and September.
