We, as voters, are certainly in our last "quarter" also. With a LAM
ballot crammed full, everybody should find more than ample
reason to .make their way to the polls on Tuesday, November
7th. I -
As always, The Star stays neutral in races of local concern
and does not endorse any candidates in those races. But, some ..
Sof the items in this General Election ballot are just wa-a-ay-y-
too easy a target, and it's not about local candidates.
Let's start with #1-that's Constitutional Amendment
Proposal #1. p.
The key word in this amendment is "levitation." The amend- -
ment would require construction to begin by November 1, 2003 Aj' '"' .
of a high speed transportation system connecting five of
Florida's biggest cities. (I'm pretty sure they're all in South Ir -
Florida.) The key word magnetic "levitation" sounds like the type-
of propulsion system that may be used to fuel and transport this
high speed system, doesn't it? But, after thorough evaluation
and recalling my redneck Economics 101 degree, I have ascer-
tained that "levitation" is actually the term used to closely prox-
imate how much that hi-tech system is going to cost. -
I'm a pretty forward thinking person, and have no problem M -
with improving transportation, but to put this issue in as a con- |- I
stitutional amendment creates an unfunded mandate.
You know what an unfunded mandate is, don't you? That's
when your wife goes Christmas shopping and she spends both
paychecks and then maxes out the credit cards for the next
At least your wife loves you, and knows there are some lim- .: ...
its as to what she can spend. I don't think the word love exists i
in the state's budgeting committee's vocabulary-and if money
becomes an issue, well, do I need to tell you what they do'?-
SINCREASE TAXES! t ".
Another concern here.Ais that if the constitution'says we
mud't"do it. then road fund money distributions will be short- '"
changed in other isolated or less populated areas of the state., .
Reckon who that might be?
N-a-a-a-h-h-I don't think I can vote to give the state a blank .'-
check to work out this issue. I'll vote "no" on the levitation
We've all seen that slogan haven't we-"O". It stands for
"Just Say No," and that's what I see when I look at the two ref-
erendums concerning.circuit and county judges being selected
I think the very fact that we're voting to select or elect makes
this an open-and-shut case. If we want to select our judges,
then why not elect whom we want to select in the first place. I
feel much better knowing that the selector is the electors. rather
than the electors being at the mercy of some selectors who they
might "not have much :in common wit h.
I personally will select to elect judges by voting "no" to
Referendums N6. 2 and No.`,3..They offer a local option to select
circuit judges and county judges through a judicial nominating -
commission and appointment by the governor with subsequent
terms determined by a retention vote of the people.
Don't forget to vote Tuesday, November 7th!

Buccaneers Shut Out Sharks in Super Bowl
The upper division Port St.
Joe Buccaneers of the Gene Raf-
field Football League blanked out
its opponent for the sixth time in
seven games this season with a
season finale Super Bowl victory
over the Apalachicola Little
Sharks by a scbre of 12-0. In fact,
the fierce defense of the Bucca-
neers only allowed one score this
season and that was in the last
quarter of a game the Bucs were
winning by over thirty points.
This game featured the defen-
sive ends (Rodney Besore and D.
J. Jones), cornerbacks (Zack
Tarantino, Rashard Rouse and
Steven Fennell) and the outside
linebackers (Ashley Fennell and
Zack Lee) as they charged into the
offensive back field fighting off
blocks to contain and stop the
star Shark running backs includ-
ing Justin Griggs. After turning
back the play to the inside, the
defensive tackles (Zeke Stevens,
Justin Henderson, Gage Blevins
and Scott Quintana). nose guards
(Josey Freeman and Zack Scog-
gins), middle linebacker (Warren
Floyd) and safeties (Mike Quinn
and Rashawn Thomas) closed the
gaps in what proved to be a drag.
The consistent Buc's offensive
line worked throughout the game
keeping out the blitzing nine man
line for the Little Sharks and
again producing the points need-
ed for victory (Scott Quintana,
Zeke Stevens, Charlie Persall,
Josey Freeman, Jeremy Baxley,
Justin Henderson, Lance Watson,
and Logan Wilson). The offensive
backfield battled for every yard
and overcame a fumble into the
end zone and a called back touch-
down with their will to win this

tributed to one of the finest and most prosperous eight years this county has seen in education.

able to keep I will tell you that as your District 3 school board member that my voice will be heard on
behalf of the children in Gulf County, I am a man of my word and I have no -
agenda of my own. The only agenda should be about bettering the educa-
tional opportunities for all-the children in Gulf County.

High School and I am proud to say that I would like to continue with their pos-
itive spirit In the leadership of this county., "

munity members. I want to be your. voice and I am always available to you

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 a 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-
tion for this candidate. Help make the Tax Collector's office known for its prompt
services, efficient techniques, and friendly atmosphere.

Sharks Demolish Sneads 40-18
The Port St. Joe Sharks,
ranked #4 in the Class A state
football poll, jumped out to a 21-6
first quarter lead before cruising
to a 40-18 victory over the Sneads
Pirates in Friday night's match-
"We came out and played well
early." said head coach Chuck
Gannon. "We shot ourselves in the
foot a few times when we fumbled
the ball over."
After shutting down Sneads
on their first possession of the
game and forcing a punt, the
Sharks took over on downs on the
Pirate 45 yard line. Quarterback
Seneca Chambers hooked up with
Isaiah Jenkins on a fade route for
28 yards on the Sharks' first play
from scrimmage. A five yard illegal
motion penalty then backed the
Sharks up to the 23 yard line,
where Chambers found tight end
Tyson Davis for a 22 yard gain,
giving Port St. Joe first and goal
from the one yard line. Reggie
Quinn then capped off the drive
with a one yard touchdown run,
to Town Friday for County Championship
and Corey Butler added the extra
point for a 7-0 Shark lead with
8:27 remaining in the first quar-
Following another fine defen-
sive series, the Sharks took over
on their own 31 yard line with
6:05 left in the quarter. Reggie
Quinn had seven carries for 66
' yards during Port St. Joe's nine-
play 69-yard scoring drive,
including a three yard touchdown
run. Butler's extra point attempt
missed wide left as the Sharks
extended their lead to 13-0 with
1:57 left in the first quarter.
The Pirates showed their first.
sign of life on offense on their
ensuing possession. On the first
The Pirates struck again on
their first possession of the sec-
ond half. Truette hooked up with
tightend Teron Payne for a 12
yard touchdown, ending an eight-
play 64 yard drive. Sneads' two-
point conversion try failed as they
trailed 18-34 with 5:43 left in the
. third quarter.
The Sharks scored their final
touchdown of the night on their
second possession of the fourth
quarter. Seneca Chambers capped
off a six-play 63 yard drive with a
33 yard touchdown on a quarter-
back keeper off the option. Port
St. Joe led 40-18 with 1:17 left in
Jaguars Win Super Bowl 21-6
The game between the Port St.

Tiny Sharks was a contest
between two very good Little

game 5 and 0 in league play. The
Tiny Sharks had lost only one
game, that to the Jaguars by a
one-touchdown margin. Both
teams felt they could win and
both played well enough to do
The Tiny Sharks got the ball
first and ran off three quick first
downs against a Jaguar defense
that had given up a total of only
six first downs in their last four
games. They finally turned the
ball over on downs at the Jaguar
37 yard line when Ramon.Beard
made a great tackle.
Then, after the Jaguars went
four plays and out, Apalach began
another drive. When they reached
the, Jaguar 36 yard line, Jordan.

SThe Jaguars came right back.
Taking possession at their 35-

drive down the field. When they
reached the Tiny Sharks 46,

McNair again ran around right
end and went 45 yards to the end
zone. The play was called back
because of a clipping penalty.
They continued their drive
and got to the Jaguar 23 yard line
before Chas Byrd and Darrell
(Bonecrusher) Smith made .con-
secutive outstanding plays to'
knock Apalach for a loss and
regain the ball for PSJ.
On a third down and one yard

yard line, Carlos Likely went off
tackle again. Hard blocks by
Ramon Beard, Chas Byrd, Eckley

him loose. At the 50 he put a head

Byrd passed to Matt Wright.
From then on the Jaguar
defense took over. They forced the
Tiny Sharks to kick after Javiun

backfield. Carlos Likely took the
kick and ran it back 35 yards for

NoVartis-the company, conduct-
ing the test, commented ,on the

Healthy Snacks For Kide
Snacks should be part of a
healthy diet for children. Children
cannot get all the calories and
nutrients needed by/ eating only
three meals. Their nutritional
needs will be met by providing
regular meals and healthy
snacks. Planning snacks using
the Food Guide Pyramid will help
parents offer snacks packed with
nutrients. Below are some sug-
gestions from each food group in
* Breads and grains: whole
grain crackers with cheese, for-
tified ready-to-eat cereal with
milk, toasted whole wheat
raisin bagels, pumpkin bread,
fig bars, graham crackers,
whole wheat toast, or ginger
* Vegetables: baby carrots, cel-
ery with peanut butter, grilled
cheese and tomato sandwiches
or cheese and veggie quesadfl-
* Fruits: apple slices with
peanut butter, pear slices with
cheese, strawberries with
yogurt, cubed melon, raisins, or
other dried fruits.
* Dairy Products: flavored milk,
yogurt, ice cream or yogurt
shakes, pudding or string
cheese.'.w :iv :.. -; : .
* Meat Substitutes: wedges of
hard cooked.eggs.., eanut billt
ter on crackers, or bean dip on
Here are some ideas for-low-
fat, low sugar, or alternative
treats that are great ideas for Hal-
loween: cereal boxes(single serv-
ing size), pretzels, baked chips,
dried fruit, sugar-free gum, life-
savers, lollipop, fortune cookies,
Jelly beans, gum drops, low-
fat cookies, low-fat granola bars,

PSJHS Participates With Foundation for Excellent Schools
What's wrong with this pic-
ture? The federal government pro-
vides only seven percent of
funding for public education in
this country, yet education policy
has become a central theme in the
current presidential contest
between Al Gore and George W.
Though their proposals differ
substantially in magnitude and
direction, both are calling for an
expanded role for the U.S.
Department of Education-some-
thing that as recently as four
years ago was deemed by many to
be a political hot potato.
Actually there is nothing
wrong with this picture because
the debate now being carried on
at the highest political level is.
symbolic of a much deeper unease
that is being felt in all 50 states

Americans have a nagging
sense that their schools are not
giving students the. knowledge
and skills that they will need to
function as competent citizens,
workers and parents in the early
21st century. The problems are
particularly acute among schools
serving substantial proportions of
low-income students and mem-
bers of ethnic minorities. The two
presidential candidates are giving
voice to this unease.'
One point that has frequently
been lost in the current national
debate about low-performing
schools is that we are asking
schools to accomplish something
that no industrialized country has
ever had to do. The workplace of
the industrial era required a few
managers with training in higher
order thinking. skills and large
numbers of workers trained to
carry out repetitious tasks that
demanded only minimal educa-
In today's global and informa-
tion-based economy, however, vir-
tually everyone must be equipped
with the knowledge and skills that
in the past were demanded of only

figured out how to accomplish

vated minority segment of the

PAGE 8B, THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2000
by: Chris Slane
Ask your kids who "The Rock"
is and you'll likely get a five-
minute lecture on pro wrestling.
They might explain in vivid detail
a "pile driver" or a "body slam"
they witnessed on Monday Night
Raw. They might even tell you.
about a verbal onslaught they saw
between "Kane" and "The
Undertaker" that erupted into a
violent hallway brawl.
But ask your kids to talk
about the character of George
Washington or Mother Teresa and
chances are they'll quip, "C'mon.'
that stuff is boring."
Sure kids are intrigued by our
fast moving, TV-driven culture.
Many of us are. So is it; a shock
that most of thfiemi ,know more
about prd wrestling than they do
about the character of Abraham
Lincoln? It shouldn't be.,
Take a look at the world of pro
wrestling and you'll see a real-life
portrait of how many people fight
violence with violence. The typical
WWF broadcast portrays people
slamming each with other chairs,
tables, or whatever they can get
their hands on. When one wrestler
attacks another. alliances are"
formed and revenge is planned.
Sure, it's fake. And it's admittedly
humorous at times. But the
actions of some muscle-bulging
actors do more .to promote vio-
lence than resolve it.
Of course we need to keep in
mind that pro wrestling isn't the
root 'cause of violence, it's just
another symptom. Over the last
decade, we've done more to fill
young minds with stories-of mis-
ery and suffering than with sto-
ries of character. Movies like 8MM
and Screaim, which glorify vio-
lence, .offer nothing more than
distorted entertainment to young
impressionable minds. Recently
the Federal Trade Commission
IFTC) released a report alleging
that Hollvywod has willfully used
a broad range of advertising and
marketing to .reach kids to pro-
mote products rated for adults.
For most of us, that's no shock.
In today's society we need a
complete paradigm shift. We
should strive to fight violence with
virtue-not violence with violence.
Virtues are habits of the head and
heart that enable us to know the
good, love the'good. and do the
good. Translation? If we want our
kids to shun violence, we need to
give tlhtff more stories about
bravery and integrity and less
about "pile drivers,", shootings
and drug abuse.
There. are plenty of good char-
acter stories that could be pack-
aged in creative ways to speak to
today's youth. Sure, kids may not
warm up to them like a bag of
popcorn, but over time, they'll
begin to process and apply what
they hear and see.
Kids can benefit from learning
about Mother Teresa and her
undying .commitment to helping
the poor and sick in India. They'll
profit from :hearing about
Abraham Lincoln's incredible
compassion when he freely repre-
sented an elderly woman in court
and paid for her hotel bill and
STrixie the dog
Trick or Treat
iTx ie," along with others are
looking 'fr someone to treat them
to a good home.
At present the humane, sqci-
ety also has these black lab pup-
pies (all have shots); one great
dane mix, solid red puppy about
five months old; eight lab puppies;
five grown labs; one golden
retriever mix, about one year old;
one brindle male bull dog mix, one
male cocker spaniel mix that has
travel home.. And they'll be
enriched when (hey discover
William Wilberlorce who through
incredible integnty and preser-
vance successfully crushed the
Bntish slave traders.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said.
"What lies behind us and what
lies before us are small matters
compared 'to what lies within us."
But what lies within us, and what

The public Is invited to go and
take their families, lawn chairs,
and enjoy the festivities.
Veteran's Day is November
11, but you probably will not find
a greeting card in your favorite
shop. With. 26 million veterans in
the nation, the American Legion
realizes many people would like to
say a special "Thank You" to a vet-
eran. That's why the nation's
largest wartime veterans' organi-,
zation is offering a free, musical e-
"Many people forget !that
young military men and women
serving today are veterans. Just
about anywhere they are serving
they have access to e-mail and
receiving a special "Veterans Day"
card would be a nice surprise,"
National Commander Ray Smith
Dr. Timothy Beard, Assistant.
Professor and Director of Student
Affairs in the School of Allied
Health Sciences at Florida A&M
University, was recently appoint-
ed by Governor Jeb Bush to The
State Board of Independent
Colleges and Universities.
The State Board of
Independent Colleges and
Universities is a nine member
board responsible for the rule
making, governance, and licen-
sure of non public colleges and
universities in the, state of Florida.
Thirty-seven percent of
undergraduate college degrees
were awarded by non public col-
leges and universities during the
1999-2000 academic year.
This is the third year the
American Legion has offered the
cards. The Veterans' Day e-card
service is accessed directly from
the American Legion's homepage
at www.legion.org. Once at the
site, it is a simple matter to follow
the instructions and send your
special greetings. A special fea-
ture of the service allows senders
to put their greeting together, and
then choose to send the card
then, or at a preselected later
President Woodrow Wilson
signed a Congressional Resolution
on November 11, 1919 establish-
ing "Armistice Day." The resolu-
tion said, "This day should be
commemorated with thanksgiving
and prayer and exercises
designed to perpetuate peace
through good will and mutual
understanding between nations."
The resolution further called for a
day to be observed in schools and
churches or other suitable places,
with appropriate ceremonies.
Since 1919, November 11 has
become Veterans' Day. Yet the
same spirit that gave birth to
Armistice Day continues today as
American remembers the men
and women who have served this
country in the military.
"I hope millions of Americans
will send a card to a veteran they
know. It will just take you a
moment to send the card, but it
could mean much more to the
person receiving it," Smith said.
We are asking local churches, civic groups, merchants, and
Vendors to set up a booth inthe Frank Pate Park both
days, for a fee of $25,00, to help us make this a community
