Gulf County commissioners that
records are continuing to fall and
no slow down is in sight for con-
struction within the county.
Last year's permit fees were
recorded at $237,169.16 for the
fiscal year which ended on
September 30th. This is just over
a 20% increase over last year's
revenues which totaled approxi-
mately $197,000. Over the past
two years, the building permit
fees have grown at a rate of 30%
in 1999 and 20% this year.
After the board's meeting,
Hammond pointed out that the
major gains were in the Cape and
St. Joe Beach areas.
The new construction will
constitute a $24 million increase
in taxable property values for
those areas also, Hammond said.

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY Hiunker Down With Kes by Kesley rt
WILLIE RAMSEY, EDITOR Grown-Ups Say The Darndest Things
Election Changes Needed
To Protect the Majority
John B. Anderson's column in Sunday's News Herald hit on one of
my favorite arguments when discussing third party or even 10th party
candidates. He stated, "We should not accept a system where voting for
your favorite candidate can contribute directly to the election of your least
In recent years there has been more than one third party candidate
whose campaign and voter support might have split the majority parties'
vote. This "spoiler" role is one that I feel certain these candidates do not
do intentionally, but rather have desires and aspirations to become the
.president of the United States. They also bear every nght to exercise their
privileges in this fashion.
More than once. I've had some liking for a third party candidate, but
I would not vote for .them. I felt it would lesson the odds of the candidate
whom I thought had a chance to win to be elected if I supported the small
Quick example-Democratic Johnny Liberal is behind by 3 points in
the polls, while Republican candidate Ibeeah Conservative is wallung on
eggshells trying to maintain his edge. Along comes lbeeah Conservative
Too and steals away 7 points of the Conservative vote and suddenly
Johnny Liberal is standing in high cotton with a point lead in the polls.
On this year's presidential ballot, there are 10 different parties listed
on the ballot-Republican, Democrat, Libertarian. Green, Socialist
Workers. Natural Law, Reform, Socialist, Constitution. Workers World.
and don't forget the Wnte-In Candidate blank.
Putting this in perspective. it's conceivable that the wishes of the
majority of voters can be defused by votes cast for one or more third party
candidatess. Are we really in a democratic society if the candidate with
the most votes wins, even if he/she is opposed by the majority of voters?
As I have discussed before on this page. less than 50% of Americans
are currently putting forth the effort to show up at the polls on election
day. Add to that a slough of small party candidates and we have a formula
Anderson pointed out a solution to the problem that several other
democratic countries are already using called instant run-off voting.
Voters could vote for the candidate of their choice and follow with a rank-
ing of alternate choices. If the winner does not have a clear majority vote.
candidates with the least votes are eliminated and recounting occurs until
a majority vote is achieved. Ballots for your top ranked candidates still
count until a clear majority winner is determined.
I' fear if we don't eliminate this glitch in our voting practice. the day
could be close when we find ourselves in a big mess.
Anderson was very accurate when he said voters could. vote their
hopes, not their fears," under a system such as instant run-off voting.
This could be a real option.
A Name Well Chosen
The Robert M. Moore Administration Building is a complex of which
the community can be proud. It certainly will fill a need for space that has
existed for many years within the walls of the Gulf County Courthouse.
A total of 10.000 square feet of office space and new commission
meeting quarters will not only house the administrative offices of the
county,. but will provide much needed growing room. while freeing up a
substantial amount of space within the existing courthouse. Several elect-
ed county officers will be dividing up vacated spaced in the not-too-dis-
tant future I would imagine.
You may recall that grant money had been committed and construc-
tion was under way on the building's exterior shell when Gulf County'
received the "KO" word about the local mill. Only after grants were
received to finish the second courtroom/commission meeting room were
work crews able to finish the inside of the structure.
Robert M. "Bob" Moore played an instrumental role in helping to make
that possible while at the same time doubling the county's courtroom
I'm sure all of this will be repeated on Friday, November 3rd. when
dedication ceremonies will be held at 10:00 a.m., ET. for the Robert M.
SMoore Administration Building.
I'm also sure a lot of folks will remember Bob and what a friend he
was to Gulf County. But. twenty years from now, when we hear the name
Robert M. Moore Administration Building we'll still remember our old
friend Thanks Gulf County commissioners, for a name well chosen.

Ricky Gene Stafford pointed
out once that someday we would
be "one of them." That brought on
dead solid silence .
I tried to picture Bobby
Waldrup as a grown-up dispensing
wit and wisdom and rules to an
unsuspecting group of youth. You
talk about a :scary proposition!
And Hollis Mayo. And Millicent
Blackburn. Whew! They could get
a one float parade out of line! You
know, come to think of it, they did!
Maybe some folks are just not
cut out to be adults.
When we looked quizzically up
at some older, wiser, mature leader
like we didn't understand where
the heck they were coming from .
. the results were almost always
predictable. We'd get the perfunc-
tory pat on the head and the wise
counsel that we would "under-
stand it all" when we got a little
older. Some- of us were a little
leery. Some of us couldn't wait.
I figured my first act as'an
adult would be to get to work on
that ballfield where everyone
would be welcome ....
Time has a wonderful way of
shaping you, educating you and
giving you the "right stuff' to han-
dle the responsibilities that come
with age. I finally, after years of
doubts, fears and struggles, get to
be an adult and guess what-I still

growth in older people as the
impact of retirement-oriented
development hits Gulf County. We
have a moral responsibility to take

themselves alone and in need.

Two Days in Prison
written by: Dustin Beatty '
Day One: I get on the bus. i1
smells like dirty underwear,
At the prison, a guard says
Get a box and one pair of under-
wear. This underwear is your besi
friend. You go to lunch, it goes tc
lunch. You get bitten, it gets bit-
Then we walk to the supply
room. The guard talks to us
"What do you want to do with
your personal things?: You may
dispose of them now, or mail
them home. If you choose to mail
them home, 'you have thirty days
to do so."
On the way to the sleeping
room I notice the way the floor
shines. It's perfect, almost like
:chrome. We .are assigned beds; I
have the thiid bed from the door I
sleep on top of the covers because
the bed' is so hard. The guard
shows us the rest of, the prison:
The "rec" room.""
Day Two: WVe wake up to loud
voices and shouting at 5:00 A.M.
and, go to work. I am part of the
yard crew. I will learn to drive the
tractor and cut grass. Two hours
later we go to breakfast. Horrible
grits and hard bread. We have
inspections every: day. Fred was
caught with a knife. He is in lock-
up, .or I guess solitary confine-
At 1:00 we go.to lunch. It's
horrible. There's no talking. We
have five minutes to eat. You'don't
get a lot. you don't eat a lot. That's
how it is here. Before you know it,
lunch is over.
We go back to work I have to
get on a van with lawn mowers
and weed eaters and one big jug
of water. Now we're stopped on
the side of the road, We unload
the van single file.
A guard with a shotgun
comes out and yells, "Get to work,
now!" We work, and work until
our hands fall off. Cars that pass
by slow down to stare, but we
can't wave or look at them. Now
it's time to go back to eat dinner
for five minutes,' ,. ,
It's 10:00. Time for lights out.
It's loud, people are talking, argu-'
ing, walking around. There's no
way to sleep, and we'll be up
again in ,a few hours. That's two

"When the people call, they
describe the squirrels' unusual
antics, as well as large lumps that
appear to be cancerous tumors on
the squirrels' bodies," said Mark
Asleson, an FWC wildlife biologist.
"The lumps are, in fact, cutaneous
warbles caused by the larvae of
flies commonly known as bot
In the Southeastern United
States, gray squirrels and other
rodents and rabbits are common
hosts to these larvae. What hap-
pens is that the adult female flies
deposit eggs in the immediate
vicinity of the hosts' nests or dens
where the host comes into contact
with the eggs. The eggs hatch
when exposed to sudden
increases in temperature or mois-
ture, such as occurs when the
animal grooms itself.
The larvae then enter the
Settlement Nets $1.1
Million for Fla. Teachers
Florida's teachers and library
media specialists will receive $1.1
million for reading enhancement
grants as a result of a joint effort
by Education Commissioner Tom
Gallagher and Attorney General
"What makes this program
unique is that individual teachers
and media specialists-not
schools or districts-will apply for
and use the grants based on their
classroom needs," Gallagher said.
The Reading Enhancement
Grant Program was created after
Florida's Attorney General
reached the million dollar settle-
ment agreemerit with book dis-
tributor Baker and Taylor Inc. The
Florida Attorney General's Office,
17 other states, and the U.S.
Department, of Justice filed civil
complaints in, 1998 against the
companyfor overcharging its cus-
tomers. In August of this year, the
case was settled.
'"This program would not have
been possible if not for the efforts
of General Butterworth," Gallag-
her said. "Because of his work on
this case, our teachers and stu-
dents will benefit.
Every school in the state will
receive information packets
explaining how teachers and
media specialists should apply for
the grants. Schools should expect
to begin receiving the packets as
early as next week. Individual
teachers/media specialists can
receive up to $5,000, and the
money must be used for specific
materials, supplies and/or train-
ing to increase reading profi-
According to Gallagher, the
grants will be distributed to
school districts for dissemination
to teachers and media specialists
by early December..

beneath the skin where they cut a
little hole so they can breathe and
continue to develop. This develop-
ment takes from three to seven
weeks, depending upon the
species of fly and host, and
causes itchy swellings that range
from half an inch to one inch in
After the larvae emerge from

infected, but they normally heal
"In gray squirrels, larvae are
most abundant in late summer
and fall, which is why people are
seeing the lumps right -now,"
Asleson said. "Most of the squir-
rels will suffer no permanent
effects from the parasite, however
a few occasionally may become
debilitated by heavy infestations."
There is no threat to the
safety of pets or humans from the
hosts or their larvae.
"The best thing to do if you
see squirrels exhibiting these
characteristics is simply to leave
them alone and let nature take its
