Teachers Declare Impasse



School Board and Teachers Union Meet With Federal Mediators


Members of the Gulf County
Classroom Teachers Association
(GCCTA) union and the Gulf
County School Board have yet to
reach an agreement over the
salary and benefits portion of
their contract.
The GCCTA has declared an
impasse and the two parties
should have met with federal
mediators Wednesday, October
18th, at 5:00 p.m. as a non-
biased third party negotiator.
It was stated in a press
release sent out by the GCCTA'
union representatives that state'
legislators had provided money
for a "substantial" teacher pay
raise.
The release also says the


school board is not using the
money for that intended purpose.
It states that the board received
$524,000 in additional state
funds, but have obligated less,
than one-half of that money for
the teachers' raises.
Also mentioned was $3 mil-
lion that is currently in the gener-
al fund balance.
The union stressed that the
board must provide competitive
salaries in order to attract and
retain qualified and certified
teachers.
Superintendent Jerry Kelley
said that has also been the goal of
the board. "We've made signifi-
cant progress getting our salaries
in line with surrounding counties.


We intend on continuing to span
that gap," he said.
Approximately 2% points cur-
rently is separating the two par-
ties. Teachers are asking for 6.5%
pay raises and the board is offer-
ing 4.5%b.
Kelley said the state did put
5.74% in new dollars into the
school's pot of money, but that
the money had to fund not only
teacher: raises, but any other
increases.
-. According to Florida State
Department of Education figures,
Gulfs average teacher's salary is
S31,923. The pay range is from
S24.250 for starting teachers with
a bachelors degree, to a maxi-
mum of S41.637 for teachers with


a masters degree and extended
years of service. Top salary for
bachelors degree .teachers is.
$39,580.

regular meeting Tuesday. Local
business person Ann White had
volunteered to research the city
license fees and identify folks
doing business out of their homes
who might not be paying commer-

business licenses.
Mrs. White offered to do the
research after voicing concern
during the board's., first meeting of
the month about ,the increases in
,commercial rates; In her report to


the board, she said approximately
90 homes have businesses being
run from them within :the
community.
Of that number, 41 had not
purchased a business license at
$25 each.
-'She also plugged in the cost
for garbage dumpsters and esti-
mated that approximately

Mobile Home or Manufactured


Home, That's the Question!


Mobile home or manufac-
tured home, that's the question in
Mexico Beach as the city faces
suit over which is which.
Joe and Jacquelyn Armistead
of Brooks, Georgia initiated the
litigation after Mexico Beach offi-
cials issued a stop work order at
their homesite.
The- homesite is located on
Pine Street' in Mexico Beach and
the home intended to be placed at
,the site is manufactured by Palm
Harbor Homes of Plant City. The
Armisteads were given permits to
place a manufactured home on
the site as allowed according to
their comprehensive plan.
When the home arrived at the
site, it didn't take neighbors long
to light up the phone lines at City
Hall voicing their complaints that
the home was a mobile home and
didn't meet zoning requirements.
Neighbors are also concerned that
the home will reduce the value of
their property.


According to Mexico Beach
Mayor Garry Gaddis, the home
meets the definition of a mobile
home as outlined in the city. com-
prehensive plan. But the state
has stamped the structure as a


manufactured home.
Gaddis said the city had
adopted a comprehensive plan, as
required and consequently

They Need Some Fish


To Go With The Stink


I thought it rather interesting when I received correspondence from
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) pro-
claiming that a three month investigation by the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement (FDLE) clears FWC Executive Director Dr. Allen
Egbert of deleting public records from his personal computer.
How does that old saying go, "confusion to the enemy!" Well, I think
our good buddy Dr. Egbert is trying to dab some perfume on the smell
of those three'day old baitfish the FWC has conjured up.
He tries to blame this whole issue on fishermen, their attorney Pat
Floyd and the computer expert reviewing FWC computers as part of a
public information records request made on March 2nd.
No one ever said or charged Dr. Egbert with removing public Infor-
mation from his computer. Any investigation was initiated by him, not
by fishermen. Any charges or allegations concerning him were in his
mind-or hard drive ... What do he and the FWC have to hide? That's
my question.
As stated in the FWC press release, a public information request
was made on March 2, 2000. Why didn't they honor it? Why were hard
drives wiped? Why have requests for the wiped information not been
answered? The Big Question-Why did the FDLE wipe some FWC
computer hard drives on March 23rd, rather than just delete materi-
als under investigation?- Where are the evidence copies of those
hard drives?
He even talked about the matter being taken to the press rather
than to the state attorney's office. But, he failed to mention that the
public information request was made on March 2nd, then was ignored
until late March, and is yet to be fully honored even with press involve-
ment.
By the time the fishermen's attorney began to receive records tell-
tale signs indicate that someone in the FWC had been deleting files. In
fact, it was reported that the FDLE copied Egbert's and several other
computer hard drives on March 23rd, and then wiped some of those
hard drives in connection with an Investigation concerning e-mails' of
pornographic pictures sent to FWC sites on February 22nd (note time
line):.
Also, let's remember the public information request was for the e-
mails of Egbert on the FWC server also. That information:has yet to be
Provided in any readable or useable format according to the technicians.
According to the fishermen's expert. his computer was reloaded one
day after the public information request was served. His hard drive was
also formatted twice, reportioned, and physically wiped using third
party software.
I have no doubt that Dr. Egbert did not remove information from his
computer ... B.t, computer .analysis indicates that someone did: not
,only from Egbert's computer, but also from others withinl'the FWC'"aler
; the public information request.
Let's not use the press to cloud this issue over the honor of Dr.
Egbert either. But, let's do remember-He is the bossl
If indeed the FWC has nothing to hide, then cough up the records
for public review, cooperate -with the laws that surround the public
information request. and roll the heads of those who have done wrong.
It would seem to me that these would be the efforts of a truly honorable
director of the FWC with nothing to hide and innocent of any wrong
doing.
If this is not a cover-up, then prove it Dr. Egbert-"You the man." If
there's no problem,. the fishermen will owe you and'the FWC a big apol-
ogy.
Obviously there's not a lot a little "pooh dunk" newspaper like The
Star can do toward influencing the powerful FWC. or FDLE for that mat-
ter The big powerful dailies must have bigger fish to fry, and who
cares about,those poor ole hard working salt-of-the-earth commercial
fishermen anyway-who evidently are out of money,. and have few choic-
es left but to throw themselves at the mercy of the FWC.
Maybe as a last ditch effort they could gather in force. muster up a
load of three day old fish, drive to Tallahassee. and dump them right
smack dab on the steps of the FWC's main office complex-they could
even share some with the FDLE. At least then, they would have some -
fish to go along with the stink! '- :" I"
P.S.-Anyone who would like to review a copy of the fishermen's
computer expert's affidavit is more than welcome to drop by The Star
and look at mine.

Now HeresA Column You Can Really Sink Your Teeth Intot


THIS COLUMN WINDS down
my series on, making scupper-.,
x.nong pie;' mainly because the
scuppernong season is over, and
because I have wrung about all
'the interest I can get from one,-.
subject.
I got my pie!
I have another 'recipe for
'making 'the pies, furnished to me
by my sister-in-law from up in
'Georgia. She says she was reluc-
tant to get into the controversy,
but decided she may as well to
add to the advice I had. been
receiving here of late.
It was: from this recipe and
from Earline Everette's advice,
that I got my pie-'in fact, I got
two pies .
One of my sons decided to
experiment with making pies and.
came up with a reasonable fac-
simile of a pie "like Grandma
-sA tovaute"


ed I get'one of them to make me .
a pie. .
That's all well and good, as
far as it goes. The only thing is
,that my 'sons all cook with a
charcoal grill They're wizards
when ,it comes- to grilling some-
thing to perfection. I was a little
'hesitant in requesting one of
them to depart from their exper-
tise and attempt to make a scup-
pernong pie.
One 'of them-Ray, the old-
est-volunteered to attempt the


He not only made me the one
ALL THREE OF MY sons are experimental pie,. but made me
good cooks and Earline suggest- one to eat and one for my freezer.


He made the first one and
brought it over to the house with
:the admonition that "my crust
needs a little work on it." I guess
he didn't use Crisco! : '
At any rate, he rounded up
some more scuppernongs and
made six-that's 6!--more piesl
It was some of this batch
which went into the freezerl 4,

I DIDN'T SEE what he did to
his -crusts the .second time
around, but he did get them bet,-
ter. I suspect he used the pre-
pared crust one finds in the
supermarket, already prepared.
I can just see him now,


rolling out pie crusts!
My mother used to make her
own,pie crusts from scratch. She
didn't measure anything. She
just spooned the shortening out
of the can onto a pile of flour and
mixed them together until they
were the right consistency, then
floured a table top, and rolled
them into a thin circular pie-
shaped configuration.
Us kids got the scraps,
because she would put the trim-
Imings on, a baking shelf, sprinkle,
them with sugar and bake the
trimmings along with the pie
shell.,

BUT, BACK TO THE scup-
pernong pie caper: Momma never
did make a scuppernong piel As
near as she got to making the
pies was to make a-raisin pie.,
Of course, we never had any
scuppernongs where we came
from, although, I don't see how
we got along without them.
I guess right here is as good a


place as any to insert my latest
recipe for scuppernong pie-the
recipe my son followed in making
my pie.
GRAPE HULL PIE
2 heaping cups muscadines or
scuppernongs
'2 tablespoons cornstarch'
3/4 cup. granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
.1/8 ,teaspoon cinnamon
,1/2 tablespoon butter or mar-'
garine
2 pie crusts for 1 pie
Wash grapes and pop them
Out with your fingers, putting,
.pulp into one bowl and skins in
another. Place skins in a pot and
barely cover with water. Boil gen-
tly for, about 8 to 10 minutes
until tender.
Boil pulp gently about 5 min-
utes; then pour into a colander.
-Mash pulp with spoon and the
seeds will come right out.-When
skins are tender, add pulp, salt,
sugar, butter and cinnamon.


Dissolve, cornstarch in just
'enough water to make a liquid
and' add to the pot. Cool until
tender thick, about 5' minutes.
'Pour into an unbaked pie shell.
Cover with top crust. Cut sever.Al
slits in top crust to vent. Bake'it
400 degrees about 20 minutes, or
until crust is lightly browned.

I WANT TO THANK you for
indulging me in this subject for
several columns. It has been
interesting-to me at least.
It isn't often I can come up
with a subject I can get my teeth
Sinto-literally.
The scuppernong season has
passed us by now; but you can
have a delicious recipe to go into
next fall.
The pies are easy to make
and the taste and aroma are well
worth the experimentation, if
you, like Ray, had never attempt-
ed to make one before. I know
you'll enjoy eating them!

Times are changing in Port St. Joe. This was the scene of the grand opening of Danley Furniture
Company on Reid Avenue in 1938. It was located in the building that Bill's Dollar Store now occupies.
Danley Furniture later moved to 401 Reid Avenue, and was sold to Heilig-Meyers which moved into the
200 block of Reid Avenue. Now that company has gone bankrupt.

Named After

Long Time

Scoutmaster


On Saturday, October 28, at
10:00 a.m., at' the Oak Grove
Avenue site of the newly-con-
structed Scout Center, the Port St.
Joe Rotary Club, in conjunction
with the Boy Scouts of America
and Girl Scouts of America, will
formally dedicate the building in
honor of the late John T.
Simpson, former postmaster and
first scout master of Port St. Joe
Troop 47. The Rotary Club is the
Charter Organization Sponsor for
the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts in
Port St. Joe, and has worked for
over five years to raise the funds
to construct the new Scout
Center.
John T. Simpson is fondly

S..In a recent press release, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation commission (FWC)
announced that the Florida
Department o4 Law Enfcrcement
(FDLE) had completed a three-
month executive investigation
:into FWC Executive Director Dr.
'Allen- Egbert. The investigation
revolved around the question of
whether Dr. Egbert deleted public
records from his personal com-
puter.
Egbert initiated FDLE's action
after bait fishermen's attorney J.
Patrick Floyd and computer ana-
lyst Anton Hajducek, Jr. released
:a sworn affidavit stating some of
,the public information request
data from hard drives of FWC
computers had been wiped from
the hard dnves.


quality-scouting experiences for


The affidavit says Dr. Egbert's
computer was reloaded, exactly
one day after the Public
Information Request was served.
It also says his hard drive was for-
matted twice, reportioned, and
physically wiped using third party
software.
At least two FWC employees
have already been disciplined as a
direct result of the affidavit which,
uncovered inappropriate use of
FWC computers.
SThe FDLE said its investiga-
tion cleared Egbert of any allega-
tions that he had deleted public
records from his personal com-
puter. ,: .
In the news release, Egbert
said he never doubted that FDLE
investigators would establish he

public records.
"I had every confidence from
the beginning that all the public
.records entrusted to me are pre-
served and are where they should
be," Egbert said. "FDLE's findings
reflect the fact that we take
Florida's public records laws very
seriously In this agency, and the
FWC is worthy of the public's con-'
fidence and trust." ,
FWC attorneys, meanwhile,
reported that If anyone ever has
reason to believe FWC staff has
deleted public records, he would
have a duty to take the informa-
tion to the state attorney's office
rather than directly to news,
media-as they claim Hajducek
and Floyd did in this case.
When questioned about the
press release, Floyd was quick to
point out that they had contacted
the Attorney General's Office and
the Inspector General's Office on
March 16th of this year-when no
response was received from the
Public Information Request, and-.
he received reports that informa-
tion was being deleted from FWC
hard drives in violation of the
public information request. r
Furthermore, he. noted that
the affidavit by .computer expert
Hajducek was filed in court first,
before any media had access to it.
SThe computer expert not only
stands' behind the information in
the affidavits, but questions why
other, public information, includ-,
ing Egbert's files off the FWC serv-
er in readable or usable format,
'has not been made available to
date-seven months into the
information request.

Floyd was concerned that this'
report might take focus away from
the true issues concerning the
Public Information Request.
He submitted a list of seven
questions for the FWC adminis-
tration--
"If the FWC has nothing to
hide and wants to clear the air:
1) Why didn't they make a
back-up copy of the hard drives
.when the Public Information
Request was received on March 2,
2000 as requested in the letter?
2) Why didn't the FWC make
a back-up when the Attorney
General's Office notified the
Inspector General of the
'Governor's office that outside
sources 'had reported the deletion
of FWC computer information on
SMarch 16. 2000?
3) Why, on the same day that
the complaint was filed in circuit
court on March 20, 2000 to force
"-the FWC to comply with'the
'yPubljc information Request. did
n e-mail get sent from FWC com-
mission staff employee requesting
verification from everyone in the
Bureau of Office OPS "'that all
INAPPROPRIATE E-MAIL .has
been deleted"?
4) Why didn't the FWC com-
;.ply with the request in the letter
to them of March 23. 2000 which
stated, "I would again like to
request that the back-up tapes
originally specified to be complet-
ed be Immediately turned over to

nessman George Duren recalled,
'We held an annual "circus" which
the scouts performed as animals
and in skits, including many well-
known men such as Robbie
Costin, Wayne Taylor, Rex
Buzzett, and many others. For
years Troop 47 under Mr.
Simpson's direction attended
national jamboree events across
the country, as well as an active
schedule of camping along the
Chipola and Apalachicola Rivers."
Through the generous assis-
tance of the St. Joe Company, and
leadership of the Port St. Joe City
Government, land for the Scout
Center was made available. 'The
Rotary Club has conducted fund
raising, and received many gener-
ous individual gifts, and a major
final gift from the duPont
Foundation through the efforts of
the late Jake Belin. "We have just
a little bit to go to have the final
building paid free and clear."
according to Rotary Treasurer


Ralph Roberson.
The ceremony of dedication
will feature as special guests
members of the John T. Simpson
family. Invitations have been sent
to the city and county govern-
ment, scout executives, contribu-
tors, and local civic clubs.
Congessman Allen Boyd is
expected to attend as is
Representative Bev Kilmer. The
general public is invited to attend
as well and see the new building
first-hand.
According to Rotary Club
Charter Representative Allen Cox,
" We have been the longest contin-
uing scout charter in West
Florida, and are re-building our
Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts
enrollments to continue the rich
tradition of scouting in Port St.
Joe. We hope all former, present
and future scouts and their fami-
lies will join us for this important
dedication in the memory, of John
T. Simpson."

veillance until the two suspects
trailered their boat at Breakaway
Lodge in Apalachicola and at that
point they were arrested."'

ties prescribed by, Florida law for
misdemeanors, both Kilgore and

Here we sit, like birds on a pole (poll),
Waiting for 7:00 to come.
We've ate, we've drank and gorged ourselves,
And even devoured the crumbs.
What else can we do to stay awake,
When we got up at half past four?
If we didn't eat or chew some gum,
We would pass out on the floor.
So here we sit smiling like chimps,
To those who pass through the doors.
We're trying our.best to be polite,
But we need Your help, oh Lord ..
For our eyes are half shut,
And our minds are numb,
And the names all sound alike.
We're trying to keep them separate,
Oh, I know we must look a sight.
But it's not so bad.
We've had some fun,
Even though the day has been long.
We'll do it again when November comes,
And get up singing our song ...

ALCOHOL & BOATING NOT A
GOOD MIx!
On Sunday, October 15th, at
approximately 6:30 p.m., Gulf
County Sheriffs Office off-duty,
Deputy Larry Hightower was com-
ing back from Lake Wimico on the,
way to White City when he came
upon a boating accident.
Arriving at the scene, he
found several people hollering for
help. Apparently the four boaters
had hit a stump causing the spill.
One of the occupants appeared to
have suffered a broken arm as a:
result.
Deputy Hightower called for
assistance from a passing boat
and they were able to get all the
people to the landing. The injured
was transported to the hospital
for treatment.
It was' determined that the
operator of the boat, Harry Robert
Redman, had been drinking.
Marine Patrol Officer Kenneth
Blackburn arrived on the scene
and investigated the accident.
Blackburn determined that
Redman was operating the boat
under the influence of alcohol. "
Redman, 33, of Port St. Joe,
was, arrested and taken to the

SMALL BUSINESS SUPPORT

IN GULF COUNTY
"Small businesses are the life-blood of our employment base,
and deserve our County Government's support."


Employment by small businesses is
the single greatest source of job cre-
ation for the next five years, according to
Business Week magazine. In Florida,
four of every five employers (81%) have
fewer than 10 employees, and over 90%
have less than 20 (National Federation of
Independent Businesses). Gulf County
has a substantial small business
community, with over 300 individual
businesses, including sole proprietors,
family businesses, and partnerships.
Building construction and. associated
trades comprise a significant part of our
local employment and economy. Only
four businesses in Gulf County employ
more than 100 people.
E economic incentives have been
established by the County and
approved by the voters to encourage new
businesses to move to Gulf County, but
the existing small businesses will not
benefit under the current requirements
to qualify. The small, self-employed busi-
ness owners receives no tax cuts, wage
subsidies, or financial incentives to help
sustain or grow their businesses.
B ig corporations, get all the atten-
tion and benefits. The Enterprise
' Zone designation for Gulf County, as a
result of the Net Ban, only gives tax
breaks to corporations which pay Florida
State Corporate taxes. The SBA HUB-
Zone designation for Gulf County pro-
vides a priority for local businesses to bid
on competitive federal contracts, but
small businesses lack the capacity, techni-
cal abilities, and finances to compete in
the complex federal bidding process.


P property tax breaks, both real
property and personal, cannot be
given by the County to existing busi-
nesses, according to State statutes. But if
we lower property taxes for All property
owners, we will provide the best help to
existing small, businesses who have tax-
able property.
Support services to small business-
es need to be examined. Perhaps the
County should convert the empty
Honeyville industrial park building into
a small business incubator, providing
technical assistance, seed capital, and
rent-free space to help get people started
with small businesses.
T local purchase preferences
Ldshould be a standard written policv
.for the County, for goods and serviws,
even if the cost is slightly higher, because
money spent in Gulf Countv has a 7 tI I
economic return in creating additional
community expenditures. The 'Coupi\
should re-evaluate the focus of the
Economic Development Council, .a*nd
stimulate small business support- and
development.
s a small business owner, I hive
first-hand experience in bringing
work to Gulf County, providing a pay-
roll, and struggling- to find the support
that government claims is there for small
businesses.
A s your County Commissioner,
A I will be a small business advocate,
and do everything I can to help small
businesses prosper, grow, and increase
their ability to provide jobs in Gulf
County.

Questions Bias in Articles


Dear Mr. Ramsey:
I am writing this letter to
express my disappointment in
what I see as rather biased report-
ing in your newspaper. I am refer-
ring to the recent articles, espe-
cially that of 10/12/00, describ-
ing the golf matches between the
Port St. Joe Sharks and the
Wewahitchka Gators. Who writes
these articles? Someone with a
strong Shark leaning, obviously.
In regard to the golf match on
October 5, the Shark team did
indeed beat the Gator team. When
touting the Shark scores, your
article states that the leading
Shark golfer shot a 42. You fall to
mention, however, that this high-
est score was a TIE with a
Wewahitchka player, who also
shot a 42. In the interest of fair-
ness and honest reporting, it
would, have been the right thing to
do.
It is true that there are sever-
al inexperienced players on the
Wewahitchka team. Of the eight
players on this year's team, five
have never played golf before. It
might be a good idea to keep in
mind that this is only the second
year the team has been in exis-
tence and their first year in dis-
trict play. -.,,
I would like to commend all
the members of the Gator golf
team: Jonathan Thomes, Beau
Ludlam, Pete Taunton, Alex
Chan, Ben Jones, Jacob Jackson,

Where .Is
the Dignity?
Dear Editor:
Many times. I have seen Al
Gore on TV visiting our school
rooms all across America. Isn't it
strange that while he seems so
interested in the education of our
children, he's not at all interested
in what happens to so many of
them before they're.; even born.
He's for a woman's right to
choose-what about the baby's
right to live!
There have been millions of
abortions in,..our country in the
:last few years. If Al Gore is
elected, he and the Supreme:
Court Justices that he will
appoint will cause many more! I
dearly love children. and the
thought of this just grieves my
heart.
And while Mr. Gore has been
campaigning, his wife has been
trying to help him. But some of
the places she goes are not
becormng to a possible "First
Lady." Where is the dignity that
we need so badly in the White.
House-along with decency and
honesty? As so many have said
"Al Gore will do or say anything to-
be elected"-it seems they both.
will. How tragic!
I hope that we will all register
and vote-this is our God given
privilege. And as we do so, I pray
that we can forget about any cer-
tain party, or the man we think
will put the most money in our,
pockets. Think about. the man
who seems to care about all
Americans, who cares about a
good education for all our chil-
dren, and also cares about our lit-
tle ones who are still in the womb.
Thank you sincerely.
Betty Godfrey
EDITOR'S NOTE
Mrs. Betty, I almost wrote an
editorial about Mrs. Tipper play-
ing drums on stage at the gay
convention.


Kody Bidwell and Trey Murphy,
for all the hard work and effort
they have put in this year, and the
improvement in their game as a
result.
It can be a real challenge for a
team when the nearest golf course
is twenty-five miles away! I believe
that Coach Franzese and the
team deserve recognition for their
efforts, and I hope you agree.
Sincerely,
/s/Susan Thomas
EDITOR'S NOTE:
Susan,
The Star encourages contri-
butions from teams of all sports
throughout Gulf County. We truly
wish that it was feasible for us to
personally cover each sporting
activity In fact, that sounds
like a lot of fun, but we just do not
have the staff, nor wherewithal to
do so.
The article in question was
submitted to us. We have always
tried to encourage coaches to
submit reports from their various
sporting activities and will contin-
ue to do so. Our staff In no way
would intentionally do anything
to hurt the feelings of these young
athletes, and I hope our reputa-
tion reflects that.
Thank you for commending
the Gator golf team and please
remember in the future to encour-
age your coaches to send us
updates, we'd love to print them.

Appalled at
Lack of Respect
Dear Editor:
After the attack on the USS
Cole, President Clinton passed
that the American Flag will fly at
half-mast until Tuesday. This was
to pay respect for the sailors who
lost their lives doing their job to
protect us.
As I drove through the City of
Port St. Joe Monday, I noticed the
government buildings; the Gulf
County Courthouse.,and,City.Hall
had their flags at full mast. Along
with these were GT Corn
Telephone Company, Tyndall
Federal Credit Union, Citizens
Federal Credit, Union, Emerald
Coast Credit Union, and the First
Methodist Church. I find this to
be very disrespectful to the men
and women of our Armed Forces
who risk their lives everyday for
our freedom. This city should be
ashamed for not honoring that
one, simple request to pay respect
and honor those who have died
protecting the freedom of this
country in which we are all citi-
zens.

Americorps Meeting
If you are interested in a chal-
lenge for yourself, learning a new
skill while helping others, looking
for a way to pay for school, and/or
want to enhance your resume,
then you may be interested in
hearing about the opportunities
with Americorps.
Americorps will be at the
Senior Citizens Building, across
from the courthouse in Port St.
Joe on Friday, October 27th at
5:00 p.m.

by: Thelma Layfield
He departed this life September 25, 2000.
With loved ones all about, heaven received him with a shout.
He saw Jesus the night before, He was there waiting to open the door.
With songs of praise upon his heart, from earth to heaven he did depart.
Leaving behind the ones he loved so dear, he would not want them to shed one tear.
For he toiled and labored his life all through, for those he loved so faithful and true.
Oh, They'll remember him with happiness and with grief, through tears of sorrow of his
life that seemed so brief.
His life was about goodness and love, to his family, friends and his God above.
So today, let's rejoice for heavens gain and love each other that still remain.
For someday on heavens shore, he'll greet us once again at our Father's door.
So for now, good-bye, our beloved husband father, grandfather, neighbor, and friend,
see you someday on the other side, where precious loved ones with you reside.
Rest in peace 'til we see you some sweet day, up heavens way.


The mediation session took
place shortly after The Star's pub-
lication time Wednesday. Any new
developments will be reported in

Both the teachers and
Superintendent Kelley noted that


.approximately one-third of Gulfs

upper range of salaries and near-

GCCTA Union President Judy
Campbell stated, "Teachers feel
that the state money was mandat-


ed for salary increases."
She also pointed out the need
to focus on the lower end of the
pay scale-starting through, the
first several years of experience-
in order to recruit and maintain
quality educators.

Big Week for District 2.A


Both the Port St. Joe Sharks
and the Wewahitcka Gators are
coming off an open week, but this
Friday night's games are big for
both teams.
The Sharks, who are 5-1 over,
all on the season and 3-0 in Dis-
trict 2-A play, travel to"
Apalachicola Friday night at 7:30
ET for a district game.
Apalachicola is 1-5 on the season,
but has a 1-2 record in the district
with a 12-10 victory over
Blountstown in the second week
of the season.
Port St. Joe, ranked #4 in this
week's Class A poll, holds the #1


seed going into Friday's game with
a 20-3 victory over Liberty Coun-
ty,. a 41-6 victory over Carrabelle
and a 41-0 win over Blountstown.

hand, square off against the Lib-
erty County Bulldogs Friday night
in Wewahitchka at 7:00 CT. The
Gators, who climbed at one point
to #2 in the state, but have now
dropped out-of the polls, are 4-2
overall on the season and 2-1 in
District 2-A play. Wewahitchka
defeated Carrabelle 40-12 in the
second week of the season, then
lost to Blountstown 19-12 in dou-
ble overtime two weeks later; and
beat Apalachicola 45-8 for "Home-


The Jaguars finished the reg-
ular season undefeated, the first
Port St. Joe team to finish with
such an outstanding record, with
a 35 to 16 win over the Port St.
Joe Dolphins. Their next game is
the Super Bowl, which will take
place Thursday, October 26 at
Shark Stadium.
The victory over the Dolphins
was an exciting game featuring
outstanding defensive plan by
both teams; On the Dolphins' first
play from scrimmage, Carlos
Likely intercepted a pass and ran
35 yards for a touchdown. On the
Dolphins' second play from scrim-
mage, Ramon Beard picked off a
flat pass and ran it in lor a touch-
down. The two-point conversion
was scored on a pretty pass from
Matt Gannon to Mike Byrd.
The Jaguar defense held the
Dolphins to a net loss. of eight
yards on their next possession.
then drove in for a touch down on
three, plays. The feature plays
were a 15-yard pass from Matt
Gannon to Carlos Likely, followed
by a three-yard scoring run, by
og- Chas Byrd. On the Jaguars' next
ort possession, Desean North
ith stripped the ball from the Jaguar
te, runner and went 80 yards for a
touchdown. After holding the
Dolphins to minus 10 yards on
the next series, the Jaguars
scored on a 55-yard half back
pass from Carlos Likely to Matt
Wright. -
The second half began witdi
the Dolphins again stripping the
ball from a Jaguar back, running
it down to the Jaguar .two yard
line. The Jaguar defense, .which
gave up only one first down the
entire game, held and the offense


Wewa PeeWee
Team Wins Again
The Wewa Warrior PeeWee
Football team improved their
record to 2-0 with a big win ovei-
the Bristol Bulldogs, The Warriors
lost the opening coin toss and had
to kick off to the Bulldogs but the
strong Warrior defense forced the
'Bulldogs to punt the ball. As the
Warriors' offense took over on the
Bulldog's 40, they quickly began
to drive to the goal line.
Johnny Jones scored the first
TD on a seven yard run up the
middle with the two-point conver'-
sion by David Edwards. On the
next possession Jones busted
another run up the middle from
40 yards out.
Ryan Ranie got the two-point
conversion. The score stood at 16-
0 at the half but the Bulldogs
quickly scored on a long sweep to
make it 16-8. Josh Pitts then ran
a QB option around the right side
for a 60 yard TD and Jones
hadthe two-point conversion.
The Bulldogs put another
score on the board to bring it to
24-14 at the end of the third quar-
ter.
The Warriors put two more
TD's on the board with 60 yard
run by Jones and two-point con-
version by Blaine Pitts and a 52
yard bootleg by Josh Pitts with a
failed two point conversion. The'
final score was 38-14. The
Warriors would like to thank all
the fans for coming out and sup-
porting the team. The next home.

The Bulldogs, ranked #8 in
Class A, are the #2 seed in the
District with a 5-1 overall record

seeded Carrabelle. The Tigers are

games of the night will be Port St.
Joe hosting Wewahitchka and Lib-
erty County versus Blountstown.
Apalachicola and Carrabelle will
also square off on the same night.
The top two teams will have

took over with the ball on the 10.
In the fourth quarter, Desean
North again took the ball away
from a Jaguar runner and went
.68 yards for a TD. The Jaguars
came right back with, a big play,
this time a 65 yard run by Mike
Byrd on a quarterback keeper.
The point after was scored on a
nice pass from Mike Byrd to Matt
Gannon.
The success of the Jaguar
defense began with the interior
line. Darrel (Bonecrusher) Smith
spent the entire' game in the
Dolphins' backfield. Javiun
Langston. Kendall Hogan and
Eckley Sander made some great
hits. The boys on both teams can
beproud of their performance and
for a great effort the entire season.'

It wasn't too long ago that every-
one thought tooth alignment was

there are more than 1 million people

simply interested in improving their
appearance. But, many people are
starting tooth alignment treatment for
health reasons, too. Crooked crowd-

they're more susceptible to decay.

Latest MRI Technology at Gulf Pines Hospital


Gulf Pines Hospital in con-
junction with Alliance Imaging,
Inc. has acquired the latest in MRI
technology from GE Medical
Systems.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
(MI) is a revolutionary diagnostic
imaging technology that provides
detailed pictures of the body with-


out ionizing radiation. During this
procedure, the patient is placed
within a large magnet and radio
waves are passed through the
body, providing information about
the part of the anatomy to the
computer, which, in turn displays
the image.
"This new MRM system


strengthens our commitment to
providing the most advanced
patient care with cost-effective
technology," says Gerald Alcorn,
Director of Diagnostic Services at
Gulf Pines Hospital.

A former student. Rebekah.
Peterson, wrote this about The
Wilds. "There are so many excit-
ing and adventurous things to do,
such as venture valley (a one day
excursion through the woods
where you will be put through
many physical tests), a hike to
one of the fourth falls, and the
human swing. I would have to say
that the human swing is my
favorite thing to do. If you dare9to ,.
ride. the swing you'. will be
strapped into a hanging glider ,
harness and pulled into the air.
You will then free fall for the
whole 60 feet." She also said,-"The
Wilds is one of the greatest spiri-
tual experiences you will have.
You will not only learn about God,
but you will learn the values of
working together as one."
Report cards will be sent
home on October 26th. There will
be no "Open House" this year. If
you need to schedule an appoint-
ment to see your 'student's

About the only exercise some
people get is jumping to conclu-
sions.
"Why be good," they ask,
"when bad people 'prosper and '
good people suffer?"
"Look at Job," they say. "He
was good, and his friends were
bad. He had the boils, they the
benefits."
"Look at Joseph," they add.
"He was good, and his master's
wife was bad. She got impor-
tance, he imprisonment."
But the Bible says, "There's a
reward for the righteoUs,."
Job's boils became his bless-
ings; and if Joseph hadn't been-
a prisoner, -he wouldn't have
become prime minister.
God takes the worst 'things
that happen to His children and
turns them into the best things.
Yes, He rewards the righteous.

will be a great test to determine
how our team compares to other
district teams on the road to the
state metal ,
This Saturday is the PSAT'
test at WHS. Anyone in the high
school may take this test to prac-
tice for the real thing and another
step towards college entrance.
With the idea of college intro-
duced in this article, let mi pro-,
vide some more information
about college and the preparation
to get there.,
Recently I was reminded of
the words of Otto Kieppner. He
said, "The purpose of higher edu-
cation is to make people aware of
what was and what is: to incite
them to probe into what may be.
It seeks to teach them to under-
stand and, to evaluate, and to
communicate."
Another perspective, and one
not so highbrow, is the reality
that a college education can lead
to a better paying job and a more
satisfying career.
For whatever reason and
whatever university, don't forget
about our Gulf County
Scholarship program. Money can
be earned starting in the 7th,
grade. ,. '
What does it take to get Into
college? The specifics of the
answer to this question are avail-
able In our guidance department:.
however, let me'summarite some
information that the colleges are
putting out. The most important

criterion s "grades in college prep; -
courses." This is almost twice as --
important as "admission test :
scores" and more than twice as.
important as "grades in all sub--
jects" and "class rank." In other
words, to get into the college of
your choice, it is most important'
to take our college prep classes
and do well in them. To shun
them for the sake of a GPA will
cause one to lose ground in the
pursuit of college entrance.
Our faculty spent the day last
Friday looking in depth at the
FCAT tests and then charting
some courses for improvement.
We can be confident that we are
motivated and armed to help our
students succeed in this major
educational challenge. By the
way. if you are interested in
knowing more about FCAT, stop
by our Opportunity Center during
or after school. Our staff will glad-
ly put you through some paces on
this and other Important things
like the SAT and ACT.
We will be having our next
School Advisory Council meeting
on Monday the 30th this month In
the Gator Room. Some of the
activities we 'will be involved with
is looking at school grades and

on't Be Sheepish About Getting a Good Night's Sleep


Do you dream of getting a
gQod night's sleep? If you're like
nidaxy Americans, the stresses, of
work and family life might have
y6ii tossing and turning each
nght and waking up on the-wrong
side of bed each morning.
"Believe it or not, you can live
longer without food-than-you can
without sleep." said Dr. Ken
.Iougherty, president of the
Florida \ChiropracLic Association
(CA). "Sleep is vitally, important,
yet it cans be terribly elusive to
rifany of;us inIt6dayls fast-paced
' world."
W.C. Fields once joked that


Honorable Billy E. Traylor
Board of County Commissioners Dzstnci No.

Honorable Nathan Peters; -Jr.
Board of County Commissioners District No


the best cure for insomnia is to
get a lot of sleep. But lack of sleep
is no joke; not only can it make
you feel cranky and tired each
day, it can also cause your brain
to function improperly, making it
impossible to perform even the
simplest of everyday tasks. While
there might not be much you can
do to prevent the occasional work
relatedcnightmare that wakes you
,up at 2:00 .a.m., a good mattress
and pillow, as well as a few simple
lifestyle and nutritional changes,
can work wonders when it comes
to getting a good night's sleep.

Association and Dr. Dougherty
recommend the following tips to
help you get a good night's sleep:
When choosing a mattress,
look for one that is comfortably
supportive. Although very firm
"table board" mattresses used to
be in vogue, Dr. Dougherty said
the new industry trend toward
"selective support" is best.
Selective support allows you to
press down one .area of a mat-
tress, leaving other areas unaf-
fected. If you do have back pain,
you might want to firm up the

tine sleeping.
Be sure to choose a mattress
that is finished on both sides so
you can rotate it, just like you
would your car tires. Every few
months, turn it clockwise, or
upside down, so that body inden-
tations are kept to a minimum.
i When purchasing a mat-
tress, don't be embarrassed to
actually lie down on it at the store
to check its fit and comfort. Don't
just sit on it to test it'.
If you're in the market for an
air mattress, take heart. One
advantage to sleeping on an air
mattress is that both sides of a
double bed can be adjusted indi-


Know Fire Laws


Before You Burn
Suppression Charges Can be Costly


Burning is one of the simplest
and most versatile tools available
to homeowners and land man-
agers, with many economic, envi-
ronmental, and safety related
benefits. However, as the State of
Florida becomes more populated,
homeowners and land managers
face a growing responsibility to
conduct prescribed burning in a
manner which minimizes the
potential for injury to the public
from fire or smoke. Never light a
fire outdoors until you are sure it
is legal. Always use good judge-
ment concerning the weather and
other conditions that can influ-
ence a fire. Be safe, not .sorry.

Bob' Rhea of the Florida
Division of Forestry said, "you are
in violation of state law if you
bum land-clearing debris or set
fires for agricultural or forestry
operations without first obtaining
authorization from the Division of
Forestry." Some trash fires involv-
ing leaves, yard litter, household
paper, etc., must also be approved
in advance. Campfires, warming
fires and cooking fires do not
require authorization, only good
common sense. .
No matter what the purpose,
think before you start that next
open fire. You must be in control
of the fire at all times. "Issuance of
an authorization does not relieve
the burner of responsibility of an
escaped fire. The burner must
have the necessary equipment
and personnel on the scene to


maintain control at all times. If a
fire should get away and escape
your property you are liable for
suppression costs," Rhea said.
In addition, you may be
responsible under civil statutes
for damage or destruction to other
homes and properties. Keep in
mind that smoke creating a nui-
sance to others must be extin-
guished. Rhea said, "if a fire must
be suppressed because of smoke
problems or fire danger, a Notice
of Violation will be written with a
minimum suppression charge of.
$150."
Rhea said, 'We're trying to
educate the citizens of Florida and
make them aware of charges for
suppression." Florida statutes
impose a liability upon whomever
causes an unlawful forest, grass,
or woods fire for all reasonable
cost of suppression. The mini-
mum cost is $150 with Notice of
Violation. In some instances, fire
suppression cost may be assessed
by the court in conjunction with
criminal action.
Be safe and think before you
start that next fire. Northwest
Florida continues to experience
extreme dryness as a result of a
three year drought. Call your local
Florida Division of Forestry office
if you need additional informa-
tion.

The Folk Revival

Returns To Dixie
Straight from a triumphant
engagement in Nashville, Ten-
nessee, Judith Lovin and Ken
Sizemore bring "The Folk Revival"
with music from the 1950s,
1960s, and 1970s back to the
Dixide Theatre.
Performances will be Friday
and Saturday, October 20 and 21
at 8 p.m. and Sunday, October 22
at 2:30 p.m.
Admission is $10.00 and no
reservations are necessary. Doors
open an half hour before show-
time.
Dixie Theatre Summer
Season ticket holder should con-
tact the box office at (850) 653-
3200 for special complimentary
arrangements.
Judith Lovin and Ken Size-
more are truly artists for whom
singing is the most natural
expression. They are versatile per-
formers who, having found their
own best style, wisely stay in its
niche. Their individuality deliber-
ately marks their choice and pre-
sentation of material so the songs
are of a piece, but without being
dull and repetitious. Ranging
from the timeless to the timely,
they present a program that cuts
across lines and limitations. Their
repertoire ranges from folk, MOR, /
country classics, show tunes, 50's
reprises, bluesy ballads, and
social statements to their own
,shining collection of well-written,
original songs: all in all, a fine
sense of balance between per-
formers and audience.
Judith has sung in both the
United States and Europe with
musical theater, various ensem-
bles from'madrigal to bluegrass,
and as a solo vocal act with piano.
In Nashville, Judith has been a
demo and studio singer, a festival
producer of traditional music, a
music education activist, and
Chairman of the Board of the
Nashville Entertainment Associa-
tion.
Ken came to Nashville as a
writer-artist with a RCA affiliate
after years of playing as a solo act
at clubs, lounges, coffee-houses,
and colleges across the United
States.
The varied and interesting
musical histories of each individ-
ual artist, the perfectly matched
vocal timbre, the subtle yet strik-
ing harmonies, all come together
in this partnership of two pol-
ished professionals who bring you
a strong, charismatic perfor-
mance.


vidually for the comfort of the per-
son sleeping .on each side.
However, you should still be sure
that it isn't too firm. Look for an
air mattress that has a cushion
stitched to the surface.
Be selective, when choosing
a pillow. When lying on your side,
your head and neck should
remain level with your mid and
lower spine. When lying on your;
back, your head and neck should
remain level with your upper back
and spine. In other words, your
pillow should not be so thick that
*it'causes your head and neck to.
be propped up or angled sharply
away from your body.
Try. to limit your intake of
caffeinated beverages such as cof-
fee, colas and tea. If you do drink
caffeinated beverages, try not to
drink them late in the day or close
to bedtime. Caffeine is a stimulant
and can make it difficult for you
to fall asleep.

A regular exercise program
can help you sleep more soundly
at night. Exercising in the morn-
ings is best, but if you must exer-
cise in the evenings, do so at least
two hours before bedtime. Any
later, and your increased heart
rate can interfere with your sleep.
Try to eat an early dinner.
Eating after 6 p.m. may interfere
with sleep as your body works to
digest the food you've eaten.
Always drink at least eight 8-
ounce glasses of water per day.
Although an ice cold glass of
water can be refreshing, cold
water can disturb the digestive
system due to its shock effect. If
you have trouble sleeping, drink
tap water at room temperature. In
addition, for each cup of caf-
feinated beverages you drink each
day, drink an eqcual amount of
water above and beyond the eight
8-ounce glasses of water you
should drink each day anyway.
