Store owner George Duren
exhibited an air of anticipation as
he welcomed friends and visitors
who joined at the construction
site at the intersection of First

Joe.
During his welcoming
remarks, Duren reminded those
present that some members of his
family have been continuously

cery store in Port St. Joe since his
grandfather moved here in 1938.
The first phase of the shop-
ping center's construction will
feature a new 32.000 square foot
Piggly Wiggly supermarket, fol-
lowed during "phase two" by sev-
eral retail spaces within the cen-
ter. One out parcel of corner prop-
erty is reserved for the location of
one of the dominant fast food
chain restaurants.- ,
Another target business being
sought is a clothing store. ,
,"Our long .term goals are to
offer products and services that
are not offered now in the busi-
ness community,: and 'in some
cases current businesses may
relocate in the -center," Duren
said. commenting on the types of
businesses that might locate
within the shopping center.'
Duren gave special thanks to
the people who helped make the
development possible. He gave
special thanks to Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce Executive
Director Diane Scholz and Preble-
Rish. Inc. Consulting Engineers'
Project Manager Bill Kennedy for
their efforts in bringing together
the major infrastructure develop-
ment needs in order for the pro-
ject to get off the ground.
Duren has set a target date

S.O. Gets Two Portable


Defibrillators Donated


Emergency health care in
Gulf County got a real shot in the
arm last week thanks' to the
efforts of Gwen Knight and her
contribution to purchase two
portable defibrillators which was
donated to the Gulf County
Sheriffs Office. .
"We are very fortunate to have
wonderful folks such as Mrs.
Knight in our community .
we're going to refer to her as our
angel," said Sheriff Frank
McKeithen, in response to the gift.
"This is' the least I can do to in
some way help the community,"
Mrs. Knight said of her contribu-
tion.
Emergency response to heart
attack victims is extremely impor-
tant. Each minute that passes
before emergency treatment Is
received can drastically impact a
victim's chances of survival.


McKeithen said it would be
the intent of the department to try
and keep the automated units in
areas of critical need.
Two Gulf County sheriffs offi-
cers are already trained in emer-
gency medical treatment--Bobby
Plair and Stacy Strickland. They
will carry the portable units in
their patrol cars for. quick
response in time of emergency.
When connected to a patient,
the unit gives audio instruction as
it analyzes heart rhythms and
evaluates 'a course of 'action
including shock treatment, if
needed.
McKeithen said this is in no
way intended to be a replacement
for an ambulance, but rather
should help provide quicker
response to isolated areas of the
county until emergency medical
services personnel arrive.

Great Move d



For Comm un ty William Keith helped me this'
week. You don't know 'him. And,
There have been some rather exciting activities going on unless you get very lucky, you
around these parts in recent days. probably never will. But you are
One of the most recent was Friday morning's groundbreak- familiar with that line about a
friend who sticketh closer than a
ing ceremonies for Port City Shopping Center. Over the past brother....
several years there have been several rumors, and, in fact, I don't know how I get myself
inquiries about and from chain stores looking to possibly build into some of the pits I gefall into!myself
a shopping center in this area. This one was wide and very deep.
I distinctly remember thinking to myself during these times, a
"How will this impact many of our local merchants?" ,
Well, those thoughts have now changed to-"I'm proud that
our local merchants have the insight and have taken the initia-
tive to break ground on Port City Shopping Center." ,
My hat goes off to George Duren. There-is no doubt major
risks are involved when someone takes on a project of this mag- S e e
nitude. Needless to say, he's depending on the bank to front the
vast majority of funding for what is surely a very significant
financial outlay.
When you start crunching numbers and figuring out those -
monthly payments, I'll guarantee you it took a major gut check
to venture into this groundbreaking. I suspect if George lives to
see the day the final payment is made, he'll have passed the
Biblically allotted time of "three score and 10 years" on this
earth.
I am happy, not only for George, but for several other busi-
nessmen and women throughout our communities who have
worked hard and been fortunate enough to be in the right place
at the right time as successful small businessmen.
Research has proven that by far most of the jobs created
across our state are generated through small businesses. But,
research also indicated those same small businesses have a
hard row to hoe as they struggle to exist in a marketplace dri-
ven by chain stores and nationwide advertising campaigns.
Some of our most industrious, open-minded, forward think-
ing, and hardest working people are these small business own-
ers. Good luck, George, and thanks for your efforts.



Back In The News

The Boy Scouts of America are back inthe news again. This
time it seems that some members of Congress feel the organi-
zation should have their federal charter repealed because of '
"intolerance" toward homosexuals.
The good news is the bill's chief sponsor, Representative
Lynn Woolsy (D-California), has found out she was fishing
without bait.
Moves such as this continually draw emphasis to the need
for voters to take their task more seriously. In my heart, I have
to believe that the soul of our society and our government
believes in a private organization's rights to set standards and
guidelines for folks within their group. i
But, only by a close 5-4 Supreme< Court decision were
scouts able to stick by a policy which bans gays from instruct-
ing young minds about the values scouting seeks to instilll.
Obviously, the problem is that homosexual conduct is incon-
sistent with those values!
Shouldn't the rightof non-homosexuals be tolerated also?
What is really of concern to me is that the Supreme Court
ruling was only by a 5-4. vote. Over the ne.t fev years I under- |
,stand there will be as: many as four nominatiohis to the
Supreme Court.
Hopefully, voters will keep that in mind as they select the '
people who will be appointing these judges-the president
appoints and his appointments are approved by legislators.


Hunker Down With Kes by Kesley tbe



The Samaritan Lives!


Bill didn't hesitate He rushed
to my aid. He gave over and above.
When I called the second time to
thank him. he asked il there waas
more he could do.
It reminded me of the story
aboul a certain man who went
down from Jerusalem to Jericho a
couple of thousand years ago, and
fell among thieves ....
I have spent a considerable
time sitting here on the edge, look-
ing back over into the abyss I just
got pulled out of and thinking.
You know, when I help someone
just a little my chest swells a mite.
I usually spit out (with all the false
modesty I can muster) an, "Aw


shucks,. it weren't nothing, Or I
gine 'em the. 'Im IJust glad I was
here" line. But I kinda want them
, to know that it \\as ole Kes to the
rescue.
i tried to thank Bill Keith and
he immediately began to tell me
that the very afternoon after he
had come to my aid, he got some
help that would dwarf what he had
done for me from an unexpected
source. He wasn't sticking out his
chest. He wasn't milking, some
extra thank yous out .of me. He
wasn't even lingering on the good
deed of the morning. He wasn't
interested in self-appreciating
kudos, he was too busy serving
others .


Pie Construction-A Feat Deserving Of A Gol


THIS SUBJECT OF scupper-
nong and muscadine pie is begin-
ning to raise a bit of interest. I.
didn't know it would create so
much interest. The only pie I had
eaten came from one source, so I
just took for granted that it was a
unique creation of the source.
I had a short letter from
whom I thought was the creator
of the pies, Mrs. 0. 0. Oliver, up
in Wewahitchka, who lives in the
house built by her late husband'
on Jehu Road, backed up to the
Dead Lakes.
Mrs. Oliver-the mother of
one of my sons-in-law-says she
was introduced to the building of
the pies by her mother.
Then, I get recipes entitled,
"Best of the Best from Georgia"'
from a lady named Betty Griffin
on the internet and I realize the
recipes must have been with us
for quite a while.
They're recipes dating back
to pioneer days when they made

A GENUINE RELIC of the

The only item in the recipes
from the modern, prepared food

It's hard to find a piece of pie,
these days, which isn't a bunch
of prepared pudding mix along
with a little food flavoring, or
canned fruit. Not many are made

I remember eating "Goose-

the order of scuppernong pies.
I've not seen a Goose-berry in 50
years, much less a Goose-berry
pie!

MRS. OLIVER, IN her letter,
says the 'coons got all her grapes
so she couldn't make any pies.
She said she made her first
pie with a recipe from memory,
remembering how her .mother
made the pies, and they turned
out pretty good. I'll vouch for the
fact that they did.

She even sent me her "from
memory" recipe for scuppernong
pie.: It's no "try it, and see if it's'
good" recipe, but a tried and
found to be tasty recipe.
I'll share it with you:
SCUPPERNONG PIE
Separate scuppernong hulls
from pulp and cook pulp on low
heat until seeds separate from
pulp. Strain to remove seeds,
then add pulp back to hulls. It
takes three cups of pulp and hull
mix to make a pie.
Add 1. 1/4 cup of sugar [more
if desired] and a pinch of salt.
Thicken with corn starch'. Cook
slow until desired thickness.
Cool.
Pour in unbaked pie shell.
Dot with oleo. Add top crust.
Bake until brown in 350 oven.

BRING ME A PIECE and I'll
see if you got it right! I'll devote
whatever time is required in this,
endeavor.

him he was being videotaped and
the suspect ran out of the store.
No money was taken and the
video has since been played on
local television stations in an
effort to identify the suspect-,a
black male; 6'1' to 6'2" tall; 160 to
180 pounds; short hair.
He was wearing blue jeans to


the knees (baggy) ana a light col-
ored shirt with dark checked out-
line on the short sleeve. On the
right pocket of the jeans, he has a
white New York Yankee emblem
as well as another emblem of
some nature on the left leg of the
jeans above the seam.
Anyone-who might have fur-
ther information about the identi-
fication of this suspect is asked to
contact the Gulf County Sheriffs
Office at 227-1115.

to residents concerning the
alert-
DO NOT attempt to capture
or handle any stray animal or an
animal that displays unusual or
unnatural behavior, such as over-
ly friendly or overly aggressive
attitudes, and those that are obvi-
ously sick. Should the need arise'
to slay such an animal, it must be
done in a manner that will keep
the head intact, since the brain is
needed for laboratory testing.
Pets should be restrained and
not allowed to roam free or come,
in contact with other animals..
IMMEDIATE vaccination is highly
RECOMMENDED-shots are nor-
mally good for three years.
Children should be instructed
and warned not to approach or
touch sick, injured, or dead ani-
mals. RABIES IS DEADLY!! Once
symptoms appear it's too late for
vaccination.
IMMEDIATELY report any
unusual incidents concerning
animals to the Gulf County
Health Department (227-1276
extension 125), Gulf County
Sheriffs Office (227-1115), or the
City of Port St. Joe Police,
Department (227-1414).


Engineer Bill Kennedy discussed
_recent flooding problems along
Reid Avenue after heavy rains and
wind hit Port St., Joe two weeks
ago.
Kennedy reminded the board
'of flow problems. that exist
because of undersize stormwater
drainage pipes that carry water
across Highway 98. He said the
24" pipes currently exiting the
water at Third Street and Fourth
Street across Highway 98 should
be of a much larger size in order
to handle rains of the magnitude
that occurred during the storm.

The Big Fight

Against Cellulite
Orange-peel skin. cottage
cheese. Whatever you call it. cel-
lulite is an unattractive and
unhealthy problem for many.
women. Cellulite occurs when
body fat gets sandwiched into,t
pockets separated by strong, iair
thin threads called septa. which
anchor skin to muscle. In areas
such as the hips. thighs and but2
stocks, where women are most
likely to store fat, this., tuftingg"
becomes so pronounced that it
dimples..
Men are not usually affected
by cellulite because, their septa
attach in a crisscross formation
rather than the vertical strands
found in women's skin. And while
most of us would assume that
only heavy women are prone to
cellulite, the truth is that anyone.
including average and under-
weight women, can have problerq
areas. Even supermodels com-
plain about cellulite.
This storage of fat is not only
unappealing from a cosmetic
point of view, but it can also lead
to health problems such as accu-
mulation of fluid in the layers of -
skin, impeded blood flow, toxin
buildup, nutrient depletion, and
deterioration of the connective tis-
sue as it loses elasticity and
undergoes fibrosis.
Fortunately, there are'ways
women can address the problem,
of cellulite.
Diet: Reducing overall fat
intake, though fat is not the sole
cause, can help lessen the prolif-
eration of cellulite.
Exercise: While no "dure"
eX'jts. exercise helps build mus-
cle tone, which in turn can make
the contours of your body--
including cellulite-look better.
Keep at it.
Tone and moisturize: A
body firming and moisturizing gel,
can help smooth out sponginess
and increase circulation to prob-
lem areas. When vigorously mas-
saged into skin every day, it
breaks down fat deposits and
stimulates irrigation where
applied. The ingredient used to
counteract cellulite increases the
synthesis of elastin and collagen,
which encourages restoration of
the cutaneous tissues, thereby,
creating firmer, smoother skin
over time.
Formulated with botanical
extracts, vitamins, minerals,
nutrients and essential oils, it can
give you visibly firmer, smoother,
sleeker skin in a matter of weeks.

Sickle cell disease affects mil-
lions of people worldwide. includ-
' ing two million in' the United'
States. An inherited genetic con-
dition often .associated with.
African Americans (one in every
400). the disease actually affects-
many ethnic groups including
Arabs. Greeks. Italians. Turks,
Indians. and Native and Hispanic
Amencans (one in every 1,000 to
-1 .400). September is National
Sickle Cell Month. an appropriate
time to take a few moments to*
learn about this condition.
Sickle cell disease refers to a
group of inherited red blood cell
disorders that cause cells to
become hard. sticky 'and sickle-
shaped. rather than normal
round, doughnut-shaped cells.
When sickle cells try to how
through smaller blood vessels.
they often clog the bloodstream.
break apart and prevent oxygen-
beanring cells from reaching tis-
sues. This causes inflammation
and pain and can ultimately
destroy tissue and impair the
function of vital organs. Other
complications include strokes.
increased susceptibility to infec-
tions. Leg ulcers. bone damage,
lung blockage and delayed
growth.
"Though there is currently no
cure for sickle cell disease. early
diagnosis and treatment have
proven to be effective in reducing
its severity." said Robert J.
Forster. M.D.. vice president and
medical director of care and net-
work quality for Blue Cross arid
Blue Shield of Florida s North
Geographic Business Unit. "Years
ago. many sickle cell patients did
not live beyond their 30s. but now
early diagnosis and treatment can,:
dramatically reduce the nsks of
infections, helping patients lead
full and productive lives."
Sickle cell disorders are
inherited when a child receives
two sickle cell genes from his or
her parents. If only one of the
genes is passed on to the child,
the condition is known as sickle
cell trait and the child will not
exhibit symptoms of the disease,
but has, increased potential for
passing sickle cell on to offspring.
About ond of every twelve African
Americans has sickle cell trait.
Children of two sickle cell trait
parents have a 25 percent chance
of having the disease, a 50 per-
cent chance of being carriers and
a 25 percent chance of not inher-
iting the gene.
Studies have shown that daily
treatment with penicillin from the
time the child is two months old
until he or she reaches age five
reduces the risk of serious infec-
tion by almost 85 percent.

early is so important, all babies

VFW Post #10069
Honors POW/MIA
On Friday, September 15,
National POW/MIA Recognition
Day, Commander of Post #10069
Dick Seefeldt held a ceremony at
the Post Home in Highland View
attended by many members and
the Ladies Auxiliary.
Commander Seefeldt stated
that, "We must always remember
in a special way the more than
88,000 Americans who remain
missing from all our nation's wars
and conflicts." From World War II
alone, more than 78,000
Americans remained unaccounted
for.
From the Korean War, more
than 8,200 GIs are still officially
listed as missing, including 389
who were at one time listed as
prisoners of war. In Southeast
Asia, 2,031 are listed as unac-
counted for. More 'than 100
Americans are still missing from.
the Cold War. VFW is committed
to the fullest possible accounting
of all the nation's missing service-
men.
They use picks and shovels
and labor on mountainsides and
in remote jungle cleanngs. When
they recover bone fragments and
other evidence, they send the
material to the Central
Identification Lab, where special-
ists meticulously attempt to iden-
tify the remains. Recovery
operations continue every year in
Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia. and
Korea,' as well as on WWII battle-
fields, and in areas: where Cold
War losses are suspected.
VFW supports future negotia-
.tions with North Korea, Vietnam,
Laos and Cambodia and expects
those countries to do more unilat-
erally to help reach the fullest

Forestry Association.
Yon is known throughout
North Florida as an environmen-
tally sensitive logger who prac-
tices sustainable forestry
practices in and out of the woods.
,He has an exemplary safety
record which also made him an
ideal candidate for this award.
Yon has been a master logger in
good standing since 1997 by
attending numerous environmen-
tal, business, and safety work-
shops to add value to his logging
business.
"We applaud the loggers who
do the industry proud by doing
what is in the best interest of the
forests. Joel Yon is one of those
loggers," proclaimed Bob Moore,
president of the Florida Forestry
Association.
The forestry association's
award was initiated in 1987 to
spotlight loggers in the state who
manage their operations in com-
pliance with forestry best man-
agement practices, maintain safe
highway and woods operations,
use logging personnel and equip-
ment effectively, develop unique
business practices and practice
high business ethics.

Military retirees from across
the nation have banded together .
;on the Internet in a grassroots
effort to influence the Congress of
the United States to restore the
health care that the military
retirees were promised and
earned for spending 20 years or
more in the service of their coun-
try.
Along with e-mail, mail, faxes
and phone calls to elected officials
in Washington, they have started
a national billboard and bumper
bumper sticker project to inform
the public of their plight and to
notify those elected officials that
they are serious and that they will
not be denied. In the words of one
retiree, "We fought their wars for
them and made the United States
the freest, most prosperous and
secure .nation in the world, now
we must fight for our lives again,
but this time the fight is with the
elected officials who sent us off to
fight their wars for them. It's a
notional disgrace."
Retired soldiers, sailors, air-
men, marines, and coast guards-
men of all ranks have joined the.

the grassroots movement to place:
.,billboards in strategic locations in
all 50 states and maintain them
until the health care they deserve
is restored. To date there are bill-
boards in Hattiesburg,
Mississippi, Norfolk, Virginia,
Panama City, and Ft. Worth,
Texas.
The next billboards are sched-
uled for Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma and San Diego,
California with others to follow.
The project is being funded by
donations from military retirees
and concerned citizens from
across the nation.
The manager and originator of
the project, Jack Hollinsworth, a

from school is homework.


Learning how to combat
school bacteria can begin at home
by encouraging proper handwash-
Ing habits for the entire family.
Teaching kids about proper hand-
washing at home helps them
maifntain good habits and accord-
ing to the CDC, can aid in pre-
venting respiratory infections
such as strep throat and gastroin-
testinal disorders. These new
habits can help keep children
healthier for,-at school and home.
Parents, too., can use
reminders in order to provide a
.good example for- their children.
Finding a hand soap that cleanses
properly and is effective for the
,whole family is ai essential ele-
ment in the fight .to keep hands
clean. Liquid hand soap in a dis-
penser is a sanitary and conve-
nient way to'wash. Many experts;'
suggest using an antibacterial
soap to combat the dirt and grime
children's hands inevitably find,
Washing hands with plain
soap initially removes some
germs, but germs left on hands
can quickly regrow. Using an.
antibacterial soap can result in'
less bactenal growth on the skin
than when washing with plain:
soap. Between homework and
playtime, children can easily for-
get about proper washing habits,
or about washing their hands at
all-especially if you're not there
to remind them.
But, by continually stressing,

setting a good example yourself,
you can help children create
healthy habits.
Here are some helpful tips
from the handwashing experts to
ensure proper handwashing tech-
nique and timing. ; *,
How to Wash Hands Properly
* Be sure to roll up your sleeves
and remove jewelry from fin-
gers and wrists.
* Wet hands with water.
According to Mayo Clinic physi-
cians, water temperature
makes little dillerence: it's how
thoroughly you wash.
* Apply soap and wash, rubbing
palms together. ,be sure, to
reach the top of hands,
bet% een fingersY and the wrists
for at least 10 to 15 seconds. If
kids have been playing on a
playground, it might also be
wise to have them wash their
forearms as well. -
* Rinse soap off hands.
* Dry hands with a disposable
paper towel or automatic dryer.
While keeping your hands
clean is always important, there
are certain times when clean
hands are even more crucial to
fighting bacteria.
In the Kitchen It's important
to keep hands clean when eating
or preparing food, especially after
handling uncooked foods such as
meat, poultry or fish. ,.


Around infants keeping
gdrms away from babies is espe-'
ciaily important as their immune
systems are still growing and
adapting to the environment.
Wash your hands before handling
an infant and before and after
changing diapers.
-In the Bathroom Bacteria
like to linger in bathrooms. so
washing up after using the bath-
room is one of the easiest ways to
help keep these germs at bay.
When You or Someone Else
is Sick or Hurt Washing hands
after sneezing or blowin mg your
nose when you are ill can help
avoid spreading bacteria, and also
when visiting someone who is ill.
When treating a wound or
injury. it is important to maintain
clean hands so germs don't find
an easy way in. Kids and dirt, g
hand in hand, but you can give
germs a new resfing-place by
teaching children proper hand-
washing techniques and the time
to do so.
Using an antibacterial soap
will. help fight germs that lurk
around school corners. By using
these simple tips, you can educate
your children on the importance
of clean hands, and encourage a
habit that could help keep the
whole family healthier throughout
the school year.

G ulf County has the unique
healthcare needs and limited
services of a rural county, while
ready access to quality facilities
and specialty medical services
exists just beyond our boundaries
in Panama City and Tallahassee.
We face the inconvenience and.
expense of travelling to other
cities to receive many specialty
medical care services which may
not be available here at home.
In-migration, people iovifng to
J Gulf'County;. has, created most'
(97.2%) of our increase in popula-
tion. Population growth in Gulf
County from 1980 to 1990 was
very modest, with an increase of'
only eight-percent (8%). But since
1990, annual growth accelerated
to approximately sixteen percent
(15.7%). This means that in twen-
ty years, Gulf County has grown
from just over 10,000 people to
over 15,000, an increase of fifty
percent I(50o). [Source: AHCA
Population Estimates, NCFHPC,
19981.
A t this rate of growth, the
County will be double the
1980 population within two years; -
and within five years. Gulf County
will be double the population esti-
mate fqi 2000 of 15,230.
Increased demands for accessible,::
quality Healthcaree' services will
accompany this growth in popula-
tion. .
rCIritical health needs are more
Evident in rural Gulf County
than elsewhere, which makes
access all the more important.
According to Florida Vital
Statistics, 1992-96, Gulf County
has a higher incidence than State


rates in cancer, lung. disease,
stroke, diabetes. 'injuries, and
motor vehicle crashes: and is
equal to State averages in heart
disease, pneumonia/influenza.
suicide, and liver disease. -
G ulf County will have increas-
ing healthcare needs over the
next five years as more people
move here, which will make.
access to quality services all the
more important. Our. County
Comtissidn thu'st provide the
leadership and planning to estabc.
lish a public-private sector part-
nership to insure the availability
of quality healthcare equivalent to
elsewhere in the State. in emer-
gency, outpatient, and inpatient,
to meet the critical needs of our
growing population. We. should be
realistic .in our expectations, as
we will not have the population to
support the full range of specialty
care- found in big cities, but we
can have quality in the care that
is available to our community.
ie must preserve our ability
to provide for our family
members who require inpatient
care here in Gulf County, and not
cause -the additional burden of
exporting our sick and dying to
other counties because we have.
failed to pryicde the availability of
care here at, home. As County
Commissioner, I will utilize my
knowledge, and experience in
business,, government, and
healthcare, working together with
our medical professionals, to plan
and develop private sector
resources to meet the, healthcare
needs of all our. people in Gulf

20-3 Victory Over Liberty County'


The Port St. Joe Sharks'
offense .caught Liberty County by
surprise, scoring two quick first
quarter touchdowns before hold-
ing on for a 20-3 victory in Friday
night's District 2-A match-up. The
Sharks jumped into the Class A
state polls this week at #10, as
Liberty County fell from #3 to #10.:
"It 'was a good win for our ;
kids," said head coach Chuck.
Gannon. "Any time you can play a,
team with the capability of Liberty
County with all of their past suc-::
cess, and go into their place and
beat them. 20-3 is a good win."
The Sharks took the opening
kick-off and quickly put together
a nine play 66 yard drive to get on
the score board. Lamar Patterson
capped off the drive with a six
yard touchdown run to give Port
St. Joe a 6-0 lead with 7:08 left in
the first quarter. Big plays during
the drive were: quarterback
Seneca Chambers connected with
Isaiah Jenkins for 12 yards on a
slant; Chambers hooked up with
Kyron Bailey for 21 yards; and
Chambers picked up 11 yards on
a quarterback keeper.
Liberty County answered on
,its ensuing possession, driving 50
yards in seven plays to set up a 28
yard field goal to narrow the
Sharks' lead to 6-3 with 3:17 left
in the first quarter.
The Sharks bounced right
back and continued to dominate
on offense. On second and eight
from their own 32 yard line,
Chambers and Bailey teamed up
again, this time for a nine yard
gain. Patterson then reeled out
back-to-back runs of eight and 12
yards to. give the Sharks a first

Dolphins Defeat

Eastpoint Eagles
Tuesday night, the Port St.
Joe Dolphins controlled the ball
on both offense and defense,
defeating the Eastpoint Eagles 20-
0.
The first half saw the tough
Dolphin defense hold the Eagles
to minimal gains, while the St. Joe
offense moved the ball up and
down the field. Desean North, the
Dolphin runriing back scored
once, and another touchdown was
called back on one of several ille-
gal block penalties-the only
blemish in an otherwise near-pro-
fessional performance by the St.
Joe team.
In the second half the
Dolphins scored twice, the second
score coming on a long, exciting
run by Rock Quinn. Following this
touchdown Corbin Vickery kicked
for two extra points, following a
perfect long snap by Antonio
Peterson and a hold by 'Matthew
Pope.
The Dolphin defense, led by
Clifton Legrone, David Walker,
Raheem Clemons, Stephen
Denton and Ricky Pasco, stifled
the Eagles to preserve the shut-
out victory.
This exciting win, with excel-
lent half-time entertainment by
the Eagle and Dolphin cheerlead-
ers, was enjoyed by the many who
attended this Tuesday night
game.

Porcelain


The Chinese used porcelain
for vases, but now we're using
porcelain laminates to build
smiles. These laminates are
small shields that fit over your
teeth like false fingernails fit on
fingers. If you have wide gaps
between your teeth or if your
teeth are permanently stained,
you may want to consider porce-
lain laminates, which can be
shaped to match your own per-
sonal smile.


.aminates

The procedure is surprisingly
straight-forward. We'll prepare.-
the teeth, make an impression of
them, choose the right color ot
shade, and bond the laminate
shields in place. Usually, the only
tooth preparation necessary is to(,
make the needed contour adjust-
ments and shape the porcelain
shields once they are bonded.
The results are amazing and.
we know you'll be delighted with,
your new smile. Porcelain is
strong and durable and resists.

By Monday, .Mr. Eagle had
responded well to medication and
was ready to soar again.
Rehabilitators Barbara Eells and
Marie agreed the injuries were
likely caused by a fight between
eagles. Mating season is at hand
arid, in fact, males and females
should be nesting within the next
month.
They identified the bird as a
very healthy and aggressive male
ready to breed. Mane stressed the
importance ofreleasing the eagle
back to the wild as soon as possi-

least of which was that he likely
had a girlfriend waiting on a limb.

From the Principal of

Wewahitchka


High School

byDr. Bill Truby


A Day for the Ages ,
It was a great day in Wewa.
last Friday-for a number of rea-,
sons: The community, was defi-;
nitely excited about the upcoming
ball game that was for sure. It was,
also exciting about the successes
in the classrooms, as evidenced
by progress. reports. And. there
was much stirring over other
upcoming events.
In preparation .for the game,
the cheerleaders put on a Techno
Pep Rally, a, glow-In-the dark,
screaming, hyped-up, blast-your-
ears, well choreographed, spirit-
lifting peprally. This was preced -
ed by the traditional march
around the campus led by our
terrific band. Gator Band. What
an awesome display of unity,
school spirit, and talent!
The game was definitely
superlative. The final score of 34-
0 against Arnold High, the new
school in Bay County, before the
largest crowd-in recent memory:
seemed to ,really. get :everyone
talking about WHS, .the Fightin'
Gators, and the potential we have
as a team, a school, and a com-
munity. How refreshing and
encouraging Thanks!
This Friday the team travels
to Blountstown to play theTigers.
Game time is 7:00 p.m. Keep it
going, guys!
By the way, I wish to continue
to thank our coaches for their
help with the preparation of our
football field. Coach 'Miller, espe-
cially, your contributions on and
off the field are appreciated.
The JV team had the week off
last week, but they will play
Carrabelle at home this'Thursday
at 6:00.
This past Thursday the Lady.
Gators took', on "Liberty County..
,Both the JV ahd' Varsity teams
lost: however. improvement was
obnious. They will pliy Mosleyi
and Chattahoochee this' week..
The boys Cross Country team
finished fourth in a strong field at
Marianna last weekend. The.girls
are improving quickly as everyone
established personal' records.,
They are back in action this
Saturday.
The golf team'-will trek on'
down' to Port St. Joe for a couple
of matches in the next few days.'

Keep Your Young Athlete


In today's age of health and
fitness, more and more kids are
involved in sporting activities.
Although being part of a football,
soccer, or little league team is an
important rite of passage for many
children, parents and their chil-
dren could be overlooking the
importance of proper nutrition
and body-conditioning needed for
preventing injuries on and off the
playing field.
"The majority, if not all,
sports are good, provided that the
child prepares appropriately."
said Dr. Ken Dougherty, president

"National Wildlife
Refuge Week"; Fall
Open House Tours
St. Vincent National Wildlife
Refuge will conduct the 17th
annual fall Open House Tours.
during the second week of
October. Participants will have the
opportunity to become better
acquain-ted with their refuge and
its varied wildlife and wildlife
habitats. The Open House is part
of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service, "National Wildlife Refuge
Week", October 9 through 11.
One tour will be conducted
daily October 9, .10, and 11
(Monday through Wednesday).
The tours are scheduled to leave
the refuge's Indian Pass boat dock
at 8:00 a.m., ET, and will return
at approximately 1:00 p.m., ET. ,
Transportation across Indian
Pass will be provided for partici-
pants of the Open House tours.
Those wishing to participate
must make reservations by phone
at (850) 653-8808' beginning on
September 25. Reservations will
be limited to four individuals per
group.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
former Director Mollie Beattie said
the second week in October will be
observed annually as "National
Refuge Week," leading up to the
100th anniversary in 2003. "By
that time." Beatue said. 'We hope
to make all Americans aware of
the National Wildlife Refuge
System as places to enjoy wildlife;
to hunt, to fish, to watch, and to
learn about our natural heritage.,"
As a rermnder, the refuge is
open to the public year-round
during'daylight hours except dur-`
C, ing hunt periods and prescribedd'2.-
burns- and/or wildfires. "Special':*,
permits or pnor notice are not
required to visit. Transportation
to the refuge is the responsibility
of the visitor when not in conjunc-
tion with a specific refuge activity.
"Our mission is working with
others to conserve, protect. and
enhance fish, wildlife, and plants
and their habitats for the continu-
ing benefit of, the American peo-
ple."

of the Florida Chiropractic
Association (FCA). : "Without
proper preparation, playing any
sport can turn into a bad experi-
ence. There are structural and
physical developmental issues
that need to be taken into consid-
eration before children undertake
certain sports."
Highly competitive sports
such as football, gymnastics and
wrestling follow rigorous training
schedules that can be potentially
dangerous to an adolescent or
teenager. The best advice for par-
ents who have young: athletes in
the family is to help them prepare
their bodies and to learn to pro-
tect themselves from sports-
related injuries before they
happen
"Prolper warm up, stretching
and weight-lifting exercises are
essential for kids involved in
sports, but many :kids learn
improper stretching or weight-lift-
ing techniques, making them
more' susceptible to injury," said
Dr. Dougherty. "Parents need to
work with their kids; and make
sure they receive the proper
sports training. Young athletes
should begin with a slow jog to
warm-up the legs and arms and
stretch all the major muscle
groups. Kids involved in football,
baseball, gymnastics ,and :swim-
ming should develop a routine
'that includes strengthening exer-
cises for the abdomen, the low-
back muscles, arms and
shoulders."
Proper nutrition and hydra-
tion are also extremely vital. "A
student athlete may need to drink
eight to 10 eight-ounce glasses of
water for proper absorption..
Breakfast should 'be the most
important meal of the day. Also,
eating a healthy meal before and
after practice or a game allows for'
proper replenishment and refuels
the body," added Dr. Dougherty.'
'Young athletes today often
think they are invincible. The fol-
lowing tips can help ensure your
child does not miss a step when it
comes to proper fitness, stretch-
ing, training and rest that the
body needs to engage: in sporting
activities. Encourage your child
to:
*Wear the proper equipment.
Certain contact sports, such as
football and hockey, can be dan-
ge6rouis if the equipment is not
properly fitted. Make ':su.re all
*equipment, including helmets,
pads, and shoes fit your child or
adolescent. Talk to your child's
coach or trainer if the equipment
is damaged.
*Eat healthy meals. Make
sure your young athlete is' eating
a well-balanced diet and does not
skip meals. Avoid high-fat foods,
such as candy bars and fast food.
At home, provide fruit: rather than
cookies, and vegetables rather
than potato chips.' ,;i :
*Maintain a healthy eighth.
Sports such as gymnastics,
wrestling and figure 'skating
require young athletes to follow

strict dietary rules. Be sure you
child does not feel pressured into
being too thin and that he/she
understands proper nutrition and
caloric intake is needed for opti-
mal performance and endurance.
*Drink water. Hydration is a
key element to optimal fitness.
Teenage athletes should drink at
least eight 8-ounce glasses of
water a day. Younger athletes
should drink five to eight 8-ounce
glasses ofw vater.
*Drink milk. Make sure your'
child has enough calcium
included in his/her diet. Children
over two years old should drink
one percent or skim milk rather
than whole milk. Milk is essential
for healthy bones and reduces the
risk of joint and muscle-related
injuries. -
eAvoid sugar-loaded, caf-
feinated and carbonate drinks.'
Sports drinks are a good source of
replenishment for kids engaged in
long duration sports such as
track and field.
*Follow :a warm-up routine.


Healthy
Be sure your child or his/her
coach includes a warm-up and
stretching session before every
practice, game or meet. A slow jog,
jumping rope and/or lifting small
weights reduces the risk of torn or
ripped muscles.' Flexibility
becomes a preventive key when
pushing to score that extra goal or
to make that critical play.
*' Take vitamins daily. A multi-
vitamin and Vitamin C are good
choices and Vitamin B and amino
Sacids -may help reduce the pain
from contact sports. Thiamine can
help promote healing. Also con-
sider Vitamin A to strengthen scar
tissue, and avoid 'trendy supple-
ments. Kids under the age of 18
should avoid the use of perfor-
mance-enhanced 'supplements,
such as creatine. Instead, they
should ask their coach or trainer
to include weekly weight training
and body-conditioning sessions in
theifrworkout.
*Get plenty of rest. Eight
hours of sleep is ideal' for the
young athlete. Lack of sleep and
rest can catch up with the athlete


and Fit
and decrease performance,
Sluggishness, irritability and loss
of interest could indicate' that
your child is fatigued.

After Floodwater

Recedes, Still

Danger Continues
Receding waters may signal

and devastation can continue for
weeks and months. Caution and
clear thinking in the wake of a
flood can help save lives' as Well as
property. Consider these steps to
ensure personal safety and avoid
further damage to homes and
property.

authorization and don't walk
through floodwater, particu-
larly. if it's moving Currents
even in small amounts of water
can be strong enough to carry
you away. If you must venture
into still water, use a pole or
stick to make sure the ground
beneath the water is solid.
'When driving observe barri-
cades and avoid flooded roads.
Drowning and electrocution -are
the leading causes of death
from flooding. Stay away from
power lines. and electrical
wires. Report downed wires to
your local utility company or
emergency officials.
If. you, did not turn off your
