EDITORIAL COMMENTARY Hunker Down With Kes by Kesley Colbert"
WRITTEN BY Teammates!
WILLIE RAMSEY EDITOR .. m.
Continues To Speak
For The Majority
On the surface, 56% voter turn-out sounds pretty good,
doesn't it? A majority of registered voters turned out casting
their ballots for the candidate of choice.
Helping to mold and shape the direction Gulf County, our
state, and our country proceeds in the future begins with the
election process as we choose officials to represent us in these
This is the way our system of government works--we elect
people to represent us, and if they don't do a good job at it,
then we have the option to vote them out of office at the end of
the term limits.
As I've said before, banning an act of God,. we're in control
of our own destiny. But, my concern is that a large portion of
voters are allowing a minority to control our destiny. I guess in
a manner of speaking -the majority is voicing their opinion
when they don't turnout to express their opinion.'
Is our society at the point where folks are too complacent,
too busy, lazy, non-caring, uninvolved, or just too sorry to go
to the polls and vote?
Several weeks ago I wrote how I had calculated that less
than 20% of the voting American public elected our-last presi-
dent to office. I received several comments about that editori-
al-most of which pointed out that readers had not looked at
the results in that way before.
Well, here we are in the midst of Gulf County's "Election
2000" and 28% + 1 of registered Voters can select the candi-
date of their choice.
That's right, there's not a significant difference between
voters in Gulf County and voters throughout the rest of
America--"home of the free and land of the brave."
Gulf County has 9,837 registered voters of which 5,520
(56%) turned out Tuesday, September 5th, to vote. Therefore,
2,760 + 1 would thus equal a vote of 28% + 1 of voter turnout.
Gulf County's Supervisor of Elections Cora Sue Robinson
had estimated that between 80% and 85% of voters would
make their way to the polls last week. She based this estimate
"on the-theory- that-voters-would- be-drawn to the-polls-to-regis-
ter their.support for one of the many candidates seeking elec-
tion on the local level.
Surprisingly, not even this record number of candidates
was able to generate enough interest to get substantially over
50'o of the voters out to cast those ballots.
As I was expressing my concern about the lack of voter
turnout to a friend, recently, they suggested maybe the thing to
do would be to print the names of all registered voters who did
not cast their ballots on election day.
While the thought was certainly tempting, I don't believe
we'll do that. But, I do wonder-if we started advertising that
we were going to print all of the names of registered voters who
did not vote during the upcoming October primary in the fol-
lowing week's issue of The Star, would folks turn out to vote for
fear of being embarrassed or criticized?
I have no plans to do that. But, what's at stake for our
community, our state, and our country is far more important
than any embarrassment or criticism one might receive by
having their name published.
The true embarrassment comes when we see what is hap-
pening all around us, and voters have the power to change
that process, or at-least register objection through the votes
they cast-yet do nothing.
Please vote October 3rd there may be more at stake
than you think!

Giving and Receiving-Both Ar Most Satisfying Ventur!
ONE THING I HAVE graduat- ..,
ed to is "chauffeur" for trarisport-
ing my grandchildren to places
they need to go.
It goes sorta like this-
"You don't have to work. Will
you take little Sam to the doctor,
.dentist, orthodontist, hospital,
. etc." '
"Sure,.be glad to!"
The last time we received one
of these requests was to take my
grandson to the orthodonlist inl
Panama City. :
We ..had to .get him out of
school, let him change out of his
NJROTC uniform, then drive him
to Panama City, where he could
pay a visit to the .orthodontist.
S IT MUST BE THE thing to
do, to get kids out of school to
visit the orthodontist. There was.
a steady stream, of kids of all
ages, in and out of the orthodon-
tist's office. And it was a school
I decided not to go in for the
short while it would take to tight-
.en or adjust braces..
Little did I know! I sat 'there
in that car, with the sun broiling
down on top, for nearly an hour.
It was' like sitting in a
sauna-an extra perk I .hadn't
counted on as a result of serving
as chauffeur for a day.
When asked to provide the
taxi service, I had to check my
itinerary to make sure something
.didn't interfere, or get in the way
of my providing this service.
I FIND THAT I often have a
conflict.. Just wait until you
retire; you'll see how quickly your
schedule will fill up.
Early on, at the beginning of
my retirement, I sold my second
car. I wouldn't need it any more.
There are times when I need
it worse than ever.
That ever-lasting conflict of
schedule I told you, about!,
Take today, for instance.
It took until nearly 9:30 for
me to wake up enough to get up.
I .thought the house., ,as
unusually 'empty. Nobody
bustling around to wake me up
sooner. I don't sleep very good
during the middle of the night, so
I bcgir to make;.,p for loLt sleep
about 5:00 a.m.
My wife had gotten up early
in order to keep an early
appointment with the doctor.
I was in the house, alone,
I got up, washed my hair,
showered, and ate breakfast... .
. and got to work at about 10:45.
I move slow!
I WANT TO THANK Betty
Griffin for sending me recipes for
scuppernong and muscadine pie.

San Blas and, she says, "regret-

I want to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone
who assisted in my campaign. First and foremost, to my God and my family with-
out whose love and support I could not have done this. Second, to all those who con- .
tribut.ed financially and those who worked so hard in my behalf during the cam-
paign doing those tasks that were not glamorous and frequently were hard, 'dirty, i'
hot work. Finally, to all who cast their vote for me. None.of you can ever knowr how
much this meant to me, nor can words ever adequately express my appreciation.: t
While I regret the results, I will always cherish the memories of the campaign '"
trail and the many kindnesses extended to me, my family, and those campaigning
with me. It is not hard to understand why those of us who live here love this area.
Finally, to Bob Pell and those of you who supported him, I want to say a special
"thank you" for running a campaign exemplifying the highest ideals of the profes-
sion. Through this campaign I believe I have developed a number of friendships,
especially Bob's, that will long outlast this campaign, and I am grateful to each and
every one of you. I' also want to publicly thank Bob for the kindnesses which he
showed my family while on the campaign trail. Those of you who voted for Bob
should know you voted for a fine and honorable man.
Again, "thank you" to everyone who helped in this campaign, may God bless you
and yours. I urge you to take pride in the fact that you participated in the process
that makes this the greatest nation in the world. We should thank God, and those
who served and died, everyday for the rights which we enjoy. Let us never take
them for granted.

The regular season for ,the
Gene Raffield Football League of
Port St. Joe opened Tuesday night
at Shark Stadium, with the. Port
St. Joe Jaguars visiting the Port
St. Joe Dolphins. The many par-
ents, grandparents, family and
friends of the football teams and
cheerleading squads witnessed a
game filled with big plays.
Early in the first half the
Jaguars' pressed hard on the
Dolphin defense utilizing an
unbalanced offensive line. They
ran several running plays with
Carlos Likely and Chaz Byrd at,

right side, but found little room as
the Dolphins matched the unbal-

Dolphin defenders bit on the fake
to the right and left the field open
for the Jaguar back to race the
length of the field. An extra point
run was successful, giving the*
Jaguars a 7 to 0 lead.
The Dolphin offense struggled
Sto control the ball on their next
several possessions, fumbling
often and finally losing the ball to'
the Jaguars. The Jaguars then
scored for their last time on
another excellent play by' the
Jaguars' line and backfield. The
try for extra point was intercepted
by Tyrone Dawson just before the
end of the half.
The second half was a defen-
sive struggle that saw each team
move the ball up and down the
field, but unable to score.
Late in the fourth quarter, the
Dolphin quarterback, Chris
Cochran, behind strong blocking
by the offensive line, threw an
accurate pass some 20 yards
downfield to Corbin Vickery for a

Wintering Shorebird Comment Period:
The. U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service has extended the public
comment period until October 30,
on its draft proposal to designate
critical habitat for the wintering
population .of an imperiled shore-
bird, the piping plover. The exten-
sion gives people time to examine
and respond to a recently released
draft economic report that pro-
rides an initial description of
potential economic impacts asso-
ciated with designation of critical
habitat for his species.
An economic report is pre-
pared for any proposed critical
habitat designation. A critical
habitat designation only applies
to situations where federal fund-
ing, federal authorization or a fed-
eral permit is involved. Even in,
cases where private lands are des-
ignated, it has no impact on pri-
vate landowners taking actions on
their land that do not involve fed-,
eral funding, authorization or per-
"We already review federal
projects to ensure that they do not
significantly harm this threatened
species, and this proposed critical
habitat designation should not
change the outcome of that review
process in the Southeast," said
Sam D. Hamilton, Southeast
Copies of the draft economic
report are available on the inter-
net at http:\\southeast.f\\s.gov or

In the end it's not the years in your life
that count. It's the life in your years."
Seniors, make your life count for some-
thing. Whether you live to be 100 or
30, it's what you do and the people you
touch that matters most. Whatever
kind of life you make for yourself, it's
the living in between that counts.
Don't be so concerned with how long
your life is, but'-what you make of it.
The decision is up to you.

song, our motto, and flower. "It's never
too late to do the dance of life; before

our eyes as our song. Mr. Lanford will

One of the most important
concepts for any child to under-'
stiand arid accept is 'also one'"of
the most difficult. It is the idea
that everyone is equal to everyone
else yet, each of us is different.
Understanding this concept is
crucial to insuring a safe and free
*nation for future generations..
At WES, we teach abfouti
equality, fairness and justice

lum and other means. We also
make sure that the differences
among our students-the quali-
ties that make each one so spe-
cial-are also recognized, respect-
ed, and cherished.
That's our job as edticatorsi
but we cannot succeed alone. W6
need the help and attention of all
parents as well.
Here are some tips on how td
respond if your child is confused
by the idea that a person can be
both different and equal:
Encourage your child's
natural curiosity about other
people. People come in 'all
shapes, sizes, and -colors. They
speak many languages, eat differ-
ent foods, and worship differently.
Each has talents and areas heed-
ing improvement. Help your child
realize that personal differences
are important as being the quali-
ties that make each of.us special.
*Examine your own atti-
tudes. Ask yourself what kind of
message your own behavior sends
to your child. If we are uncomfort-
able around people who do not
share our racial or ethnic back-
ground or who have a disability,
our children will sense our dis-
comfort and respond in the same
*Beware of labels. Instead,
focus on the achievements of indi-
viduals. Such labels as Catholic,
blind, or Chinese are handy 'and
we often use them without giving
it much thought. The problem
arises when the label hides the
*Encourage your child to
play and to work cooperatively
with other children, whether they
are different or not. Cooperative
activities require respect regard-
less of background or race.
