,o.mmIsSa i to Dedicate Robert M. Moore


Administration Building on November 3rd

New Emergency Management Building Grant Approved for Gulf


Gulf County comrrussioners
breezed through a relatively light
agenda during their regular board
meeting Tuesday evening.
One item of business dis-
cussed was dedication cere-
monies for the new Robert M.
Moore Administration Building.
The board had unanimously
agreed to name the complex in
memory of Judge Moore .and in
recognition of his efforts to -help
secure grant funds to 'help build
the 10,000 square foot building.
SDedication ceremonies have
been' set for Friday, November
'3rd, beginning at 10:00 a.m.
included in the program will be
the unveiling of a plaque placed at
the entrance of the building nam-
ing' it in memory of Robeit M.'
"Bob" Moore.
The board's decision to name
the new building after Judge
Moore came shortly after his sud-
den, death four months ago. Every
one is invited to attend the cere-
monies.
Grant Apprbved For Emergendcy

Gulf County's Emergency
management Director Larry Wells
notified the. board, that $762,600
in grant funds have been
approved for the construction of a

Emergency Operations Center for
Gulf County.
Wells thanked the board for
its support throughout the grant
process and noted that there -will
be no out-of-pocket cost to the
county .for construction of the
new quarters.
The biggest portion of the
need is for a hardened Emergency
Operations Center. This part of

John T. Simpson Scou


Center Dedication Nov. 28


Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts
ill celebrate a new building for
their activities this Saturday at
10:00 a.m. on Oak Grove Avenue,
and honor the memory of a,
Scouting leader, the late John T.
Simpson, in whose name the
building will be formally dedi-
cated;
For many years the Boy
Scouts met in a small buildingon
10th Street provided by the city,
recreation department. ,Girl
Scouts and Brownies have met in
a variety of locations, including
private homes, churches, and the'
Stac House; as have the Cub
Scouts.
A major inconvenience for all
the groups has been the lack of
adequate space for continuing
craft projects and storage for the
group's supplies, equipment, and
gear.
S The Port St. Joe Rotary Club,
assisted with a portable storage
building placed behind the Stac
House, but this proved to be of
limited capacity. The solution to
these needs was a purpose-built
new facility, which the Rotary
Club under-took as a community
project.
Through the hard work of
club members and generosity of
many individuals, companies, and
the City Council and County
Commission, over $70,000 was
raised in the past five 'years to
build the new Simpson Scout
Center. This Saturday, commu-
nity and scout leaders, govern-
ment officials,' and scouts with
their families will gather for the
dedication of the new Center.
.Among the many invited
guests will be members of the
John T. Simpson family.
Congressman Allen Boyd will
make a presentation, and a num-
ber of government and organiza-
tion representatives will also
make remarks. The Sheriffs

Joseph Bay with four sea turtles
.and various other sea life trapped
in its webbing.
MFP Officer Mike Nobles the-
orized the act was probably done
by poachers who were illegally
trying to catch pompano or floun-
der. Why the net was left in the
bay unattended is anybody's
guess, but the five inch mesh
monofilament net stretched along
a 125 yard path near Pig Bayou.
The very fact that the turtles
were caught in the net could have
spooked the poachers. The
offenders would have understood
the severity of the penalty if
caught, and the turtles were
severely entrapped In the net.
Maybe other .boats were in the
area or some other combination of
events prompted the abandon-
ment of the net.
Nobles said he did not believe
this to be the act of local fisher-
men, and guessed that it .was
probably done by out-of-county
people.

A Black Eye To Go Along


With Their Broken Neck


The last thing in the world fishermen needed at this point and time
was a black eve-but, that's exactly what they got when outlaws aban-
doned nets in St. Joseph Bay, trapping and killing four sea turtles.
I've talked with several commercial fishermen since this incident and
they're just as upset, maybe event more so, as anyone I've talked with.
FWC officers didn't even believe this to be the act of local fishermen, but
rather theorized poachers, quite possibly from out of the county, were
responsible.
This is a positive side of fishermen that needs to be exposed. They are
for the most part-as I have stated before-salt of the earth folks who
work hard and give back to their respective community.
Their response to this incident indicates that they don't condone
activities that are illegal, and will help police their industry to prove it.
Anyone who has read these editorials recently knows that I'm not
really happy with the top brass of the FWC. Seven months ago, fishermen
asked to view public records under the public information request plat-
form and now it looks like "Mr. Clean" got loose on. many of their hard dri-
yes. Here we are, seven .months later, and fishermen still can't get what by
law they have a right to view. ,
Please don't be confused by my stance, nor for that matter, the fish-
ermen's stance. Whoever put the illegal five inch mesh monofilament gill
net in St. Joseph Bay arid left it broke the law and deserves to be pun-
ished. They have compromised the integrity of the entire industry and,
worse than that, thrown gas on the fire of anti-net sentiment that does not
recognize the difference between a cast net and gill net. If indeed certain
folks at FWC have it in for fishermen, incidents such as these help their
cause.
I was very pleased to hear that Bob Jones, president of the
Southeastern Fisheries Association, and the commercial -fishermen they
represent, have put up a $500 reward for the person' or persons who -
might give information toward the identification and conviction of the.
individuals) who put the illegal net out in St. Joseph Bay.
The FWC also provides rewards through the Wildlife Alert program [1-
888-404-39221 that range between 825 and $1,000 depending on the seri-
ousness of the violation. Anonymity is assured for persons reporting vio-
lations.
It sounds like everybody is on the same page here. We just hope the
law breakers are caught and punished to the full measure of the law.

Would You Want A Train In Your Back Yard?
by Eduin H. Moore. President/CEO of The James Madison Institute in Tallahassee, a
Florida-based non partisan, nonprofit research and educational organization
The citizens of Florida will be faced with an issue on the ballot on
November 7 that has an almost stealthy quality about it. I-am referring to
the proposed .amendment to the constitution-requiring the-Legislature to"
approve-thie'construction of a high-speed train between (or connectingfthe
live largest population areas. The amendment mandates the state create
a train system that will cost billions to construct and much more to oper-
ate.
Aside from demonstrating an astonishing disregard for the integrity
and purpose of the Constitution of Florida, this proposal expresses a cal-
lous disregard for the resources of the State of Florida. It would, if passed,
hamstring Florida's future by committing unlimited and unconstrained
resources to an ill-defined project.
The amendment mandates approval by the Legislature. There is no
provision for environmental'concerns, no discretion for fiscal concerns,
and no latitude for the governor or Legislature to meet other needs per-,
, ceived by them to be more pressing to the health, safety and welfare of the
state. The interests of communities along the route are ignored. Would
, you want a train in your back yard?
The general revenue available for programsin this year's budget of
over $52 billion was less than $20 billion. This new project, as envisioned
by those who would place it ahead of education, crime and, health con-
cerns-normally priority items for .the government of ,Florida--would
potentially consume in excess of $1 billion per year in operating subsidies.
Which programs will we need to eliminate, or reduce significantly, to build
an empty train to five Florida cities?
There has been, to my knowledge. no thorough study of this issue by-
any public or private group. There have been no public hearings to deter-
mine feasibility. There has been no determination of need.. What we have
is the ambitions of a few at the expense of the people of Florida, with no
deliberation or input from those who are elected to represent them.

The Season's Over; Without A Series,


WELL, NEW YORK got what
it was wishing ,for-'a "subway '
-series." But what is the rest of
the nation going to do for
. October baseball, now?
* The baseball season .is fin-
ished for the rest of the nation.
It'll be a world series of wild card
teams. The teams with the best
W-L records have been elimi-
nated, making it a series made
up of second best teams, and
won't decide who is the better
team. They had just as well
include Japan in their play-off to
'decide the world champions--
and Cuba and China.
The world series has just
been diluted, so far as I am con-
cerned.. .
It "was OK to have :a subway
series back .when the Dodgers
.and Giants were located in New
York. But now that professional
baseball clubs are sprinkled
throughout the nation, a subway.
series leaves more than a little
to be desired.


THE MYSTIQUE which goes
along with the world series has
all but disappeared this year, If
one doesn't live in, or near, New,
York City, he has a difficult time
identifying with one of the par-
ticipating teams.
Where is the loyalty of the
fans? No longer can one "root"
for the team which is nearest his
home, because "his" team has
been eliminated in the play-offs.
Only the New York teams
seem to have the budget to
afford the caliber of players nec-
essary to maintain-year after
year-which are necessary to get
into the world series. *Atlanta,


comes close, but they can only
turn in the best W---L record.
Seattle, nor St. Louis couldn't do
it. '
-' Now Seattle, like Miami of a
couple of years ago, is on the
verge of losing its star player
and its manager. It Won't be the
same team next year. -. ...
St. Louis has all-its eggs in
Mark McGwire's basket, btiit he
hurt his knee as theseason was
winding down,, so a third-best ',
Mets team knocks them' off ini
three games. ..

IT'S A GOOD thing the Mets
aren't in, the world series 'with


the Braves. They handled the
Mets on every occasion in which
they met this season, with one
or two exceptions. Does a record
like that mean they should rep-
resent the National League in
the series? .
The Chicago White Sox-who
have been- notorious losers for
years-had the best \V-L record
in baseball this year. but didn't
make it through the preliminar-
ies' on: the way to the series. The
Yankees didi
There's something 'vrong in'
the system, somewhere. The two
best teams didn't make the,
grade on the way to play off for
the. national, championship in
the world series.

IT WON'T BE any feather in
the cap of either the Mets or the
Yankees to win the series of
games 'rieeded to take the cham-
pionship this year.
All either team can claim as
bragging rights is ,that they, are

During some of the discus-

fishermen look bad at this time.

the fisheries association and the

Endangered Greens
When the four turtles were
brought to shore, it was thought
that they were part of a group of
.180 loggerheads that were
released into the bay in July.
They were released by NOAA biol-
ogists after being used to test tur-
tle excluder devices (TED's) on
shrimping nets.
As it turns out, this was not
the case though. Local Gulf
County Turtle Patrol permit hold-
er Barbara Eells was called in to
,.document, record, and identify
the turtles. First, she noted that
the turtles were not tagged, which
indicated they were not recently
released turtles.
After taking measurements,
closer study 'and consultation
with state biologists, it was deter-
mined that the four turtles were
greens "chelonia mydas," which is
on the endangered species list.
Eells said this was good news
and bad news. The fact that
greens are living in St. Joseph
Bay indicates they are making a
comeback and are grazing in St.
Joseph Bay. Their nickname is
derived from the greenish tint
they take on after eating sea
grasses which discolor fat
deposits under the surface of
.,their skin.
The fact that they are grazing
in St. Joseph Bay indicates an
active colony may be living in the
bay. Eells said the turtles have

Hess Rules Against MB
On Home Definition
Last Thursday morning
Circuit Judge Glenn Hess granted
a temporary injunction allowing
Joe and Jacqueline Armistead to
move forward with their plans to
place a manufactured home on
their lots along Pine Street in
Mexico Beach.
The City of Mexico Beach had
issued a stop work order after the
manufactured home in question
arrived for installation, but
according to the city's compre-
hensive plan and zoning require-
ments the home met the defini-
tion of a mobile home.
The Armisteads, in turn, filed
suit against the City of Mexico
Beach, as well as Mayor Garry
Gaddis as mayor and individually.
Hess questioned whether the
city's comprehensive 'plan had
enough teeth to identify the home
as a mobile home. He also stated
that state legislation has deter-
mined that a manufactured home
cannot be treated any differently
than a conventional home.
Mayor Gaddis said the board
will likely meet sometime later
this week to discuss what direc-
tion to continue since the ruling.
Among their options would be to
appeal Hess' ruling.

nance stay.. One of the biggest
projects is to rebuilt the boat's
engines during what is to be the
most dramatic retrofit during the
boat's five-year-plus history.
New carpet, a whole new
paint job and color scheme, along
with updates on a few design
ideas will put the boat back in
like-new condition.
According to the dry dock
plans, early next week Nekton
Pilot will be winched up the slip-
way and work will get underway.
Folks who might want'to see
the Nekton Pilot firsthand need to
be along St. Joseph Bay between
the George G. Tapper Bridge to
St. Joe Beach between 7:00 and
8:00 Saturday morning.
It is expected to take approxi-
mately one hour for the boat to
make its way from the tip of the
Cape to the bridge. It will take
approximately another hour to go
up the Gulf County Canal to the
Gulf County'Shipbuilding site.
Workforce Continues To Grow
He said at least three ships .


From Page I
are scheduled to be constructed
at the site over the next two years.
Nekton Rorqual is under con-
struction now. It will be followed
by a SWATH designed yacht
which will be marketed by Gulf
County Shipbuilding. Then, work
will begin on the third Nekton dive
cruise ship.
Marketing the; SWATH design
is very much in the plans for the
company's future. As has been
reported in past issues of The
Star, the SWATH designed vessel
rides up to eight times more sta-
ble 'than traditionally designed
boats. More stability equates to a
smoother ride and a.less likeli-
hood of motion sickness' or sea
sickness.
This is achieved by construct-
ing the vessel on two submarine-
like pontoons. The two pontoons
can ride on, the surface of the
water, be totally submerged. or.
partially 'submerged, by using,
pumps to fill the interior of the.
flotations with sea water.
All of this is done based upon


wave conditions during the trips.
The pontoon depth is regulated to
achieve the optimum fuel efficien-
cy and ride comfort.


Workers put the finishing
touches on dry dock rail.

"Winston Man" Speaks Out


Against Tobacco Industry


As part of this year's Red
Ribbon Week activities in Gulf
County. schools,, the "Winston
Man" .was a featured speaker for
all students grades six through
12. Also students in all grade lev-
els were given red ribbons, but-
tons and pencils. The event was
sponsored by Students Working
Against Tobacco, Teen Pregnancy
Prevention Program, and School
Health Services.
Dave Goerlitz; former
"Winston Man," is a professional
actor, producer, world-class
model, public speaker, and educa-
tor. He is best known as the lead
Winston Man in R.J. Reynold's
lucrative "Search and Rescue"

Red Ribbon

Week Tribute
Sheriff Frank McKeithen and
the Gulf County Sheriffs Office
employees would like to pay trib-
ute to "Red Ribbon Week." This
October will 'mark' the 13th
anniversary of "Red Ribbon
Week."
In 1985, federal drug enforce-
ment agent Enrique Camarena
was killed by drug traffickers in
Mexico. In response to his death,
angered parents across the.coun-
try began wearing red ribbons to
symbolize their commitment
toward the creation of a drug-free
America.
Congress officially proclaimed
the first national "Red Ribbon
Week," October 23-31, 1988. The
red ribbon had now become a
symbol for the drug-free move-
ment.
You will notice that vehicles.
for the sheriffs office %will be flying
the red ribbon to honor this
meaningful week. They, would like
to request ,anyone who would like
to participate to please feel free to
do so by placing a red ribbon on
your vehicle.
"Ribbons will. be available at
the shenffs office for those who
would like to join us in our tribute,
'to 'Red Ribbon Week.' Thank you
for your commitment in our con-
tinued effort to make our county
- drug free," McKeithen stated: *

helped to move Winston cigarettes
from number four to number two
in world sales. Mr. Goerlitz was
featured in 42 of these ads, more
than any other tobacco model,
including the Marlboro men.
In November 1988, Goerlitz
began his public stance against
the tobacco industry by publicly
participating in The Great
American Smokeout and con-
demning the industry's advertis-
ing targeting kids and their sale of
tobacco products to young people.
Since that time, he has been hon-
ored by The World Health
Organization, The American
Cancer Society,. The American
Lung Association, and The
American Heart Association on
both the local and national levels.

Goerlitz delivered a rollicking,
fast-paced comedy review of his
personal experiences as a lead
Winston model to the assembly of
Gulf County students. Using
slides of his work as well as other
tobacco ads, he took the audience
behind the scenes of tobacco's
advertising world and showed
them the reality of what that
world is really all about. manip-

well. But penalties were the difer-

Gulf County faces a challenging future where sound government must be
a priority. I believe government must be innovative in the way we do business by
providing a high level of service at lesser cost to the taxpayer. At the same time
we must continue to provide the down-home personal service we have all enjoyed
through the years.

Marshall has a B.S. Degree in Business Management and 25 years of management
experience. His education and experience has given him the knowledge, skills
and abilities to provide strong leadership for Gulf County.

Qualified experience, dedication and commitment make the winning combina-

Sharks At 4-0 In District With 39-0 Victory Over Apalach


The Port St. Joe Sharks,
ranked #4 in the latest Class A
state football poll, clinched the
District 2-A Championship with
Friday night's 39-0 victory over
Apalachicola. The Sharks are 4-0
in district play and 6-1 overall
with only one district game
remaining, against Wewahitchka
on November 3rd. The Gators are
2-2 in the district after suffering a
34-23 loss to Liberty County (6-1,
3-1) Friday night.
Even if the Gators upset Port
St. Joe for the Gulf County Cham-
pionship, it would give the Sharks
only one district loss- and the
Sharks defeated Liberty County,
the only other district team with
one loss, earlier in the season 20-
3.
The Port St. Joe defense set
the tone for the game on
Apalachicola's first possession of
the game, forcing a three-and-out.


The defensive unit dominated the
entire game, holding Apalachicola
to only 74 total offensive yards for
the game.
After a great punt that pinned
the Sharks back on their own
nine yard line, Port St. Joe drove
the length of the field for their first
touchdown on the night. Isaiah
Jenkins capped off the drive with
a great one-handed catch on a
pass from quarterback Seneca
Chambers for a 35 yard score.
Corey Butler added the extra
point to give the Sharks a 7-0
lead.
"We wanted to go over there
and play good "defense," said head
coach Chuck Gannon. "Our
defense came out, shut them
down on their first series, and
picked off a pass later in the quar-
ter."
Later in the first quarter,
Chambers .intercepted his first of

Report cards and the annual
Parent Survey will be sent home
with the students on Friday, the


WES is participating in Red
Ribbon Week, a drug-abuse
awareness program. All students
were given ribbons and pins to
wear on their lapels that, bore
anti-drug abuse messages.
SAmerican children are smok-
ing, drinking, and using drugs at
younger ages than ever before.
They are pressured by their peers
and by movies; television pro-
grams and music that sends the
message that alcohol and drugs
are "cool.".


Here are some ways to help
children understand the peril
posed by drugs and alcohol:
Start Early: Talk to them
now. Don't wait until your chil-
dren reach adolescence. Begin in
early elementary school years.
Teach Strong Values:
Children' need clearly stated val-
ues about right and wrong. Make
sure they know that alcohol and
drugs are against family rules.
Listen: If children know that
you will lisfed without panic or
anger they are more likely to come
to you when situations arise.
Build Self-Esteem: When
'children feel good 'about' them-
selves they are less likely to seek
a "high" from other means. ,
Encourage Independence:I
Children who are confident in
their ability to make decisions
they will find a easier not to do
what everyone else is doing.
Get Help: If your child
exhibits signs of alcohol or drug.
abuse, get help from the school
counselor, family ,physician, or
treatment center.
Practice What You Preach:
Never use illegal drugs and drink
only tn moderation. Your example
is the best teacher,
Know. The Facts: learn the
facts about the dangers of using
drugs and alcohol and teach them
to your children.

soon as possible and no later than
