Mill's F final Plans Told


Environmental Issues and Demolition Plans Taking Shape


In August of 1998 speculation
started as to what would eventu-
ally happen to the Florida Coast
Paper. Company mill as the paper
machines wound down and the
plant was closed.
SDifferent degrees of hope fol-
lowed by frustration surfaced as-
former workers rode a roller
coaster ride full of peaks and val-
leys of emotions while waiting for
the final word on the mill's future.
Eventually the word came
down and the announcement was
made that the new owners,
Smurfit-Stone Container Cor-
poration, decided to permanently
close the mill.
Over the past several months,.
Smurfit-Stone mills from across
the country have been removing
equipment and machinery from
the site for use at other :mills.
Plant officials have also been busy
dealing with environmental influ-
ences at the plant.
According to Ferrel Allen,
overseer and former general man-
ager of the mill, these activities
and more will be moving forward.
Allen presented a program to the
Port St. Joe Rotary Club last
Thursday. November 16th, outlin-
ing their plans.
He told members present that
between now and the first of the
year there would likely be an
increase in the removal of sal-
vageable and usable equipment
from the plant. Environmental
issues would also be addressed at
a greater level during this time
span in preparation for demolition
of much of the plant next year.
Allen explained that there,
were still some gaps in the course
"of a'cToh. but discussions and
efforts were pointing toward uti-
lization of the deep water port at
the site. This would facilitate leav-
ing buildings or structures that
might be utilized in conjunction
with such operations-such as
the giant warehouses.

'New Year With A Bang


October is the first inonth of
the year for. most. governmental,
offices and the Gulf County
Building Department started its'
new year with another record
breaking bangll
Building Inspector Michael
Hammond told the Gulf County
Commission Iduring its last meet-
. :. ng that 52 new construction per-
mits had been issued for the
Month of October with a total
value of nearly $5 million.
Fifty-two construction starts
blew away the old record of 31
starts in January 2000. Needless
to say, the $4.928 million in prop-
erty values approaches doubling
the old bench mark of $2.7 mil-
lion and $35,294.50 in permit
fees tops the 'old mark by over
$8,000.
Hammond stated, "October is
normally one of our slow
monthss"
He explained that approxi-
mately 85%. of the new construc-
tion was taking place at the Cape
and Indian Pass. A large portion
of the fees were from additional
units being built at Barrier'


Dunes, near the entrance' to St.
Joseph State Park.,
The remaining portion of new
construction was spread pretty
evenly throughout the county,
Hammond stated.

the Gulf Correctional Institution
prison complex, east of
Wewahitchka.
Tyndall Air Force Base con-
tacted the Gulf County Sheriffs
Office at approximately 9:50 CT.
and advised them that the plane
had gone down. The pilot and
passenger contacted Gulf County
, Sheriffs' Office deputies by cell
phone shortly after the event was
reported and advised them they
were okay.
The emergency landing
occurred approximately one mile
east of GCI in a wooded area.
Further details were not available
by The Star's early press deadline
Tuesday morning.


Allen introduced Steve
Hamilton, Manager of Environ.
mental Affairs, to the club. He
outlined the company's plans to
deal with environmental issues.
Hamilton explained that
approximately $250,000, has
already been spent on Phase I of
the removal of environmental
influences. Much of the oil, chem-
icals, and other items removed
were able to Jbe used at other
Smurflt-Stone mills. He stressed
that any materials that were/are
removed will be dealt with accord-
ing to state laws and rules and
disposed of accordingly.
Phase, I of the operations will
take place over the next few
months and will post an estimat-
ed $1.5 million dollars.
One of the efforts will include
cleaning out all residue from the
various process chemical contain-
ers at the site.,.
Removal and distribution. of
approximately 300,000 tons of
lime is also a large project. The
lime is being distributed through
the Gulf County Extension
Agency; free of charge to area land,
owners.
"This is a very high quality
material and should be of great
help to local agriculture,"
Hamtilton added.
Much of this lime has already
been distributed in conjunction
.with Florida's Department of
Agriculture which has approved
the product for agricultural use.
Usable fuel oil has been
removed from the site and used at
Smurflt-Stone's Panama City mill.
Remaining residue and sludge
will be cleaned up and removed
during this second phase bf the.,
process.
There is also approximately
8,000 square feet of contaminated
asbestos material at the plant
site. All of the material will be
removed by certified asbestos
extractors ,under the watchful

Artificial Reef Summit



Draws Much Attention

MBARA Sponsors Meeting to Discuss

Reef Building Needs and Concerns


Members, of the Mexico Beach
Artificial Reef Association
(MBARA) held an artificial reef
planning summit last Thursday in
hopes of bringing all parties
together to reach a consensus of
cooperation and agreement for
future artificial reef development
in the Gulf of Mexico.
The-forum featured and invit-
ed comments from Congressman
Allen Boyd's office, Florida 'Fish


Pat McFarland addresses
panel during summit Thursday

and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, the Coast Guard,
NOAA, Eglin Air Force Base,
Corps of Engineers, and the
largest group present-commer-
cial fishermen and shrimpers.
All groups participated in the
discussions and aired their
concerns about the proposed arti-
ficial reef area outlined.
Commercial fishermen and
shrimpers voiced the most
adamant objection to the 274
square mile site.
Eugene Raffield, of Raffield
Fisheries, spoke out on behalf of
the commercial fishing industry
and shrimpers. He explained that
most of the area outlined by the
reef association was one of the
most productive locations.
"If we lose this area we're out
of business," Raffield said.
MBARA President Garfield
Wilson stressed the importance of
working together. He said the
MBARA was committed to work-


ing together and noted that was
the purpose of the reef forum--to
identify problem areas.
Raffield said he has always
supported the MBARA and, in
fact, he fished in and won the first
kingfishing fund raiser tourney
held by the group.
He went on to explain that
objects placed on the bottom cre-
ated land mines for expensive
fishing nets and destroyed them.
Raffield held up a shnmpers' drag ,
chart showing over 200 known
obstacles that already exist in the
area in,question.
He said shrimpers are already
having to weave their way
through this maze of material,
creating difficulties for them.
illegal dumping of reef inater-
ial was stated as being a major
problem for commercial har-
vesters. Raffleld suggested that if
the MBARA could enhance some
of those illegal sites already out
there, they would not need any
more artificial reef sites.
Pat McFarland, president of
the Florida Shrimpers Association
agreed, "Let's work together to try
and solve these problems before
we divide up and have conflicts."
He also stressed the need to have
shrimpers involved in the plan-
ning.
Garfield Wilson suggested
that maybe the MBARA and com-
mercial fishermen and shrimpers
could get together over some fried
mullet and see if these issues


couldn't be worked out.
Bill Kennedy, Port St. Joe
Reef Director, seized the
opportunity to ask members of
the Corps of Engineers if enhanc-
ing some of the illegal reef sites


"Shrimpers and seafood
processors can't afford to give
up any more."

-Mark Godwin

was achievable, and if expanding
such areas would be easier to per-
mit.
In a word, he was told no by
Corps of Engineers representative
Dianne Batemen and was
instructed that the normal new
permit procedures would have to
be followed.

Let's Not Let



Thanksgiving



Get Gobbled Up!!

It's so easy sometimes to forget just how lucky we are--as
a country, as a:state, and,.as a county.and community.
To whom do we owe all those wonderful privileges, rights,
prosperity, and freedoms, we enjoy? Our founding fathers, no
doubt. got us off on the right foot laying out a few guidelines
and guaranteeing some rights all revolving around one com-
mon thread-"In God We Trust."
Dora Dunigan dropped off a reprint of a prayer by The Star
office the other day. State legislators in Kansas got a little
more than they asked for when they invited Minister Joe
Wright to open their senate session with prayer; everyone was
expecting.the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:
S"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your for-
giveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know
Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is
exactly what we have done.
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our val-
ues. We confess that we have ridiculed the absolute truth of
Your Word and called it pluralism.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery,
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare,
We have killed our unborn and called it choice,
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable,
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it
building self-esteem,
We have abused power and called it politics,
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it
ambition,
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography
'and called it freedom of expression,
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers
and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us
from every sin and set us free.
Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent
to direct us to the center of Your will and to openly ask these
things in the name of Your Son-. the-living Savior. Jesus Christ.
Amen!"
The response was immediate. A number of legislators
walked out during the prayer in protest. In six short weeks,
the church where Rev. Wright is pastor logged more than
5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding neg-
atively..The church is now receiving international requests for
copies of this prayer from India; Africa, and Korea.
Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio
program, "The Rest of the Story," and received a larger
response to this program 'than any other he has ever aired.
With the Lord's help, may this prayer, sweep over our
nation and whole-
heartedly become
S_ our desire so that
e w again can'be
called, "ONE
*NATION UNDER
GOD."
Let us hot get
~ too corifused'" this
i Thanksgivin. g
about to whom we
need to be thank-
full!


Dorothy Carter was one of
those people you might easily over-
look. She was quite quiet. She
never sought the I melight, she :
was never gushing all over you like'
some adults at the church where I,
grew up. She didn't seem to want '
to be noticed .. so mostly I did-
n't.
She was never unfriendly or,


standoffish mind you. she just did-
n't appear comfortable 'at the cen-
ter of things.' I can remember her
from Vacation Bible School when
the "craft portion" of the morning
was dedicated either to popsicle
stick ashtrays or wearing multi-
colored pot holders.
Dorothy Carter didn't teach
back then. She wasn't the song
leader or the head of the WMU.
She wasn't even in charge of arts
and crafts at Vacation Bible
School. But if your glue wasn't
sticking like it oughta, she would
be there, very quietly, almost shyly
I thought for a grown-up, wiping
off the excess and showing you
that sporetimes less is better .. '.


At big church, she had her
special little spot like most every-
one else. Hers was off to the side.
kinda out of everybody's way. She
definitely didn't come to be seen.
But I tell you what. I don't ever
remember her not being there.
I knew my Mother liked her. A
lot.
"Mom, how come Miss Dorothy
doesn't say very much?" I was
around eight, maybe ten, an age
where the question came out of
Sour mouth if It was on your mind.
-She is just a quiet person, son
Salt of the earth, mind you. They
don't come any better. It's just not
her nature to be outspoken."


At prayer meeting when we
were going over special needs.
she'd always wait till everyone else
had listed their requests for a sick
neighbor, a hospital bound uncle.
or a special "word from on high" ..
. then she'd haltingly rermnd us
of a family out on the Shiloh road
whose father was out of work.
She'd request prayer for a way-
ward boy in her neighborhood; 6r
some lost soul she knew.
She seemed to care noete
about people and needs than-she
did that special word from on high.
Iwent off to college and most-
ly remembered old girlfnends anid
football coaches and guys' like
Bobby Brewer and Rickv Hale arjd
Buddy Wiggleton. My life ".}as
crowded, full. Busy.
Then I got married. And iad
two sons. And the pace quickened.
I forgot about Dorothy Cdrter.
Oh. I'd still see her on those
occasional visits to Mother's
Sunday School class." Over the
years as folks, care and went in
that class she would be the one
constant. She was always there.
For the last twenty years or so she
was the only one of the old group
still with Mom.
I'll tell you what I remeniber
about those trips back, Mother
would introduce me as her "middle
son" and immediately go to brag-
ging on some recent accomplish-
ment or how well I was doing or nmy
"wonderful family" . those
ladies would be trying politely .to
look interested as Mom waxed-on
more than she should have.
Dorothy Carter, froni. her over-to-
the-side-out-of-the-way seat would
be nodding her head up and dpwn
in silent agreement \with every
w o rd ,
'Course, as soon as church
and a quick lunch were over, I'd be
back in the car, on the way home,
to my busy, busy little world. I had
things to do. People to see. Articles
to write. A wife to tend to. Sons
calling for money. I had "things"
right here, right now, needing my
attention! 1,,,,,
.. I, got-- the. word. a. people of
weeks ago.. It was on .our sual
early Sunday morning phone con-
versation. "Son, Dorothy Carter
died this week."
I couldn't think of a thing to
say.' I immediately raced back to
popsicle sticks, pot holders and
Wednesday night prayer meetings.
I hated it for Mom.
"How long," I lamely asked,
"had you known her?"
"I met her soon after we moved
back here after the war. She was a
dear friend.. "
Fifty years! I couldn't imagine
losing a friend of fifty years.
"Mother, are you o. k.?"
"I'm fine. Just think what
Dorothy is enjoying this morning!
To be absent from the body .;"
., She began to comfort me!
Typical. Mother doesn't just teach
about faith.

What Huste and Bustle Shall I Fill My Holidays With Now?


THE HOLIDAY SEASON is
beginning today with.Thanksgiy-.
ing and will continue through
New Year. But what am I going to,
do? I can't take the day off
because I already hate every day
off.
This matter of holidays has
lost some of..its zip by., my not
being able to take a- day .or two ff
from work. I guess if I want, a ,
change of pace fdrthe holidays 1.
will have to find a job to do, or,
stay in the vicinity of one. I can't'
go anywhere because I'm able to
go at my choosing already. I don't
have to be back home at any
given time any more.
Of course, I don't go any-
where, either. I guess the old
habits .are too hard to break. I
have spent a lifetime of having to
be in a certain place at a certain
time. 'Now that I don't have a
schedule to follow; I find myself
following one anyhow.:

WITH THE COMING of
Thanksgiving; .... it means
Christmas is just a month away.,'
Time for another holiday!
Frenchie swears that she is
going to put up the Christmas
tree, this year,, on the day follow-
ing Thanksgiving. That will be a
change from our normal method
of doing things.
Normally, we get the tree up
and ready to decorate about a
week or 10 days before
Christmas. Normally we get the
decorations on the tree about two
days before Christmas and
then get it down and cleared out
of the house after New Year!
There's been no rush to get
the Christmas tree up in the
past! ,

WE'VE STARTED receiving
gifts already, this year. It just is
Thanksgiving and. we're getting

Christmas gifts already.
A big box, filled with
Washington State apples came
the other day by United Parcel
, Service. They were sent by our
sister-in-law ,who lives in
Spokane.
She usually.sends a large bag
of English Walnuts, too. One of
her daughters is married to a
man whose parents own a fruit
orchard, and she has access to
all of this fruit.
Now, when farmer brother-
in-law sends us his usual box of
pecans already shelled, we'll have
the makings of some waldorff
salad, just in time for the holi-
daysl '
The promise 'of some cool
weather makes these holidays
seem like holidays.
The TV, newspapers, and
magazines are getting some holi-
day advertising, to take the place
of the political advertising and
there seems to be an end in sight
to the presidential election count.


Just in time for the holidays!',
HOLIDAYS ARE A welcome
time of the year, in spite of hav-
ing no responsibilities to be
forced to work around. They will
give us an excuse ,to vary our
lives a little, and indulge in rich
food and frivolous activities, for a
spell, without feeling too guilty
about it.
I know we will at our house.
We will- all' enjoy a large
Thanksgiving dinner after the
boys get back from hunting.
Does going hunting play such
a big part in your Thanksgiving
activities, too? It's the beginning
of the deer season on that day,
and .the boys can't stand it!
I'm running out of space,
here, so I guess I'll. wind this
thing down.
: It wouldn't appear to be
American if I didn't mention the
presidential vote count. All who
agree with our Secretary of State
in Florida, that she should cut off
the vote count, stand up!

No, I wasn't.

I was thinking of a perfect help-

involved seemed to be that a por-
tion of. the reef area encroached
.on Eglin's test site range and
commercial fishing interests.
Eglin has not fired over the
range over the past two years, but
said future testing is possible in -
the area.
Discussions with commercial
fishermen were very productive
and, in fact, MBARA members
expressed a commitment to work
through issues with them.
Especially the idea of enhancing
illegal sites that shrimpers have
marked on their charts and are
therefore unable to fish in.
In spite of an atmosphere of
cooperation and' acknowledge-
ment of the need to work together,
Dianne Bateman (COE) still didn't
give the MBARA members, any
hope of a cooperative effort expe-
diting the process. She stated in
her opening remarks, "This is not
going to be a real quick project, so
don't expect it."

Organ Dedication
and Recital Plans
The Ilse Newell Fund for the
Performing Arts and Trinity
Episcopal Church will sponsor an
organ recital at the church on
SSunday, November 19, at 4:00
p.m.
Earlier this year a Ruhland
tracker pipe organ was purchased
by Trinity Church from Bowling
Green ULniversity in Ohio. This
organ replaces a 1921 electro-
pneumatic Pilcher pipe organ
which had developed numerous
electric and mechanical problems
over the years. The installation
Process took longer than antici-
- pated,.since the organ had to be
Redesigned to fit into the available
I space.


This work has been completed
and at the 10:00 a.m. service on
November 19, the church will cel-
ebrate a rite of dedication at
which time the organ will be con-
secrated for worship through
sacred music, followed by the
dedicatory concert in the after-
noon at 4:00.
The guest organist for the
concert will be James Thrash,
long-time friend of Jan and
Gordon Adkins of the Orman
Building who will host his visit to
Apalachicola.
Thrash holds a degree in
piano and organ from the
University of Southern
Mississippi and a master's degree
from the prestigious Eastman
School of Music, where he was
organ soloist with the Rochester,
New York, Philharmonic
Orchestra.
He served as director of music
and fine arts at First United
Methodist Church of Des Moines,
Iowa, on the faculty of Simpson
College in Indianola, Iowa, and is
presently Director of Music at
Germantown United Methodist
Church in Tennessee, where he
maintains a full teaching sched-
ule of piano and organ and plays
concerts throughout the country.

Learn To Control Diabetes


Diabetes is a serious disease;
'However, people with diabetes can
live long, healthy lives by taking
.good care of themselves.
What causes diabetes?
In diabetes, there is too much
glucose in the blood. Glucose is a
kind or sugar used for fuel by the
body's cells. Two problems 'are
caused when :the glucose builds
up in the blood rather than in the
cells. Right away, the cells may be
starved for energy. Over time,
.high glucose levels may hurt your
eyes, kidneys, nerves or heart.
Two main forms of diabetes
There are two main kinds of,
diabetes. Insulin-dependent dia-
betes, also called Type I diabetes,
is caused by damage to the pan-
creas. The pancreas contains cells
that make insulin, a hormone
that helps cells take in the glu-
* chose they need. Sometimes the
body stops making insulin, caus-
ing the glucose to stay in the
blood. This causes diabetes.
Type II diabetes is most com-
mon. When you eat, your body
turns food into glucose for the
body to use. The insulin helps get
that glucose in the cells. However,


with Type II diabetes, something
goes wrong. Sometimes a person
does not make enough insulin.
This causes the glucose to build
up in the blood, resulting in dia-
betes.
Taking Care of Type II Dia-
betes
When people with Tjrpe II dia-
,betes follow a successful treat-
ment plan, their blood sugar lev-
els may go down.to normal again.
This does not mean they are
cured, just that the treatment is
working.
The goal of treatment is to
lower blood sugar and improve
the body's use of insulin. This .is
accomplished by meal planning,
exercise and weight loss.
The meal plan for a person
with diabetes is the same as
everyone else. Their diet should
be low in fat and include moder-
ate arriountsP of protein. They,
should also include starches, like
those in beans, vegetables, and
grains.
Being active helps thd body's
cells to take in blood sugar.
Therefore, exercise plays a major

role in the treatment plan.
A great goal is to work up to
being active' most days of the

On October 26th, Petty,
Officer Thad Norris stationed at
NSGA in Rota, Spain was on
assignment in the Mediterranean
Sea. During part of the maneu-
vers he was flown by jet to the
USS George Washington.
.Stationed on the USS Washington
was Petty Officer Scott Ake.
Both young men graduated
from Wewahitchka High School in
1998. Both enlisted in the Navy
immediately after graduation.
Morris went into the 'intelli-
gence field. Ake is a ABH3 third
class Boatswains Mate. He main-
tains and repairs aircraft cata-
pults, arresting gear, and barri-
cades on the USS Washington.
Finding each other ,on the,
giant aircraft carrier was no easy
matter. The crew numbers twice
the population of Wewahitchkal
Putting his intelligence training to,
good use, Petty Officer Morris
tracked down his friend. "Man,"
Ake exclaimed, when seeing his
high school classmate, "You are
the biggest thing I've .seen from
Wewa in over a year"
The two veteranNavy recruits
spent a couple of hours "catching
up" on family, friends and home.
"What a special time," reflect-
ed Morris, "to realize not just
what the Navy has done for, me
but also what it has done for one
of my friends from high school as
well."
Petty Officer Scott Ake is .the
son of Dennis Ake of:,


week for a total of 30 minutes a
day. This can be broken down
into short sessions. For those riot
use to exercising, start slow. Even*
a five minute walk will get the
body moving.
Losing weight will help the
body to use insulin better. The
best way to lose weight, is by exer-
cising and following a healthy
meal plan. Decide with your
health care provider how much
weight one should lose. 'Then
decide how much to lose per
week. One pound per week
should be the maximum. Slow

Will College Be In Your Child's
Future?
For more than a decade now,
the Florida Prepaid College
Program has been helping Florida
families plan and save for college.
It allows parents, grandparents,
businesses and others to lock in
the cost of college at today's
prices. What you pay today is
guaranteed-no matter how much
the cost of college tuition, fees,
and housing increase in the fur-
ther.
It's never too early to start'
planing for college. In fact. statis-
tics show that most of the chil-"
dren in this program are enrolled
while in preschool or elementary
school. A parent is most often the
purchaser. It is also a popular gift
- among grandparents.
Florida's prepaid plan is the
largest in the country-larger
than all other states combined.
More than 593,000 plans have
already been purchased
statewide.
The program is administered
and financially guaranteed by the
State of Florida. So it's safe. You
* cannot lose your money, and you
can get a refund anytime. for any
reason.
A college education is one to
the best investments you can
make. It's an investment in your
children and their future. Ask
yourself, will you be ready for col-
lege when your children are? Call

With time comes experience
and beginning October 1. Florida
teens will have the opportunity to
get more experience behind the
wheel. The. Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles (DHSMV) announces new
requirements for teens applying
for a learner's license.
Under the age of 16, teens will
be required to:
Hold a learners license for
12 months without any traffic

tive session. Just. a 15-year-old
Palm Beach County youth, died in
a traffic crash in 1997. Car
crashes are the number one killer
of teenagers in this country. Last
year, 276 teens were killed and
another 14,029 youth were
injured on Florida's highways.
"Learning to drive and drive
safely takes experience and skills
that can come only from practice
and time," said driver license
director Sandra C. Lambert.
"While the new guidelines only
require 50 hours of driving experi-
ence, we encourage families to
provide their teen with as much
supervised driving time as possi-,
ble."'

Last week I visited a dentist.
SAs I sat in his chair, he said,
S"Open your mouth wide." To
Keep my mind off the pain, I
thought on the Psalms.
In the days of the Psalmist,
w, hen a king wanted to favor a
Visitor, he'd 'say, "Open your
mouth wide." Then he'd fill it with
sweets or gems.
The King of kings, whose love
.is limitless, whose might is
measureless, whose funds are
fathomless, says in the Psalms,
"Open your mouth wide, and I
w ill fill it."'
What an invitation to prayer,
and prayer is just as natural and
simple as opening your mouth.
When you open it wide in faith,
theLord willfill to.the full all your
needs. '
Open your mouth wide,' won't
you?

Gulf County Republicans Organize For 2001


An over flow crowd attended
the first county wide Republican
Convention at Butler's Restaurant
on Thursday November 16. The
Executive Board, State Committee
Woman and Precinct committee
men and women were elected.
Gary Ross was elected
Chairman. The rest of the
Executive Board. is composed of
Cindy Belin Vice-Chairwoman,
Dr. Jorge San Pedro, Vice-


Chairman, Ralph Roberson,
Treasurer, Sandra Chafin,
Secretary, Sara Ross, State
Committee Woman. Allan Cox had
already been elected State
Committee Man. Dr. Bill Taylor
was elected chaplain.
Precinct committeemen and
women who were elected include:
Billy Traylor, Precinct 2; Ralph
and Margaret Rish, Precinct 3;
Terry Otwell, Precinct 4: Michael


Caroline Norton, outgoing District 3 School Board Member,
was recognized at the November 14 meeting. Chairman Redd and
Superintendent Kelley present Mrs. Norton with a plaque com-
mending her for five years of service to the board.


Hammond, Precinct 6; Nolan
Treglown, Precinct 7; David
Langston, Precinct 8; Sidney
"Smiley" Anchors, Precinct 9;
Sabrina Burke and William
"Sonny" Chafin, Precinct 10;
Regina Washabaugh, Precinct 12;
Preston Russ, Precinct 14; Terry
Linton, Precinct 15.
A few precinct positions
remain open. You may contact
any member of the Board if you
are interested.
In comments made to those
assembled, Ross said he was
excited and honored to take over
as chairman. "Mr. Downer, the
former chairman, and his board
did much to reinvigorate the
Republican Party in Gulf County.
We had over 60 volunteers partic-
ipating in this last election cycle
on phone banks, running an
absentee direct mail program and
as poll watchers.
The new chairman noted the
future of the Gulf County

FHP License and
Vehicle Checkpoints
The Florida Highway Patrol
will be conducting driver license
and vehicle inspection check-
points from November 24th and
30th on SR-73 near CR-287, and
SR-30 near Allen Memorial Way.
Recognizing the danger pre-
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on vehi-
cles being operated with defects
such as bad brakes, worn tires
and defective lighting equipment.
.In addition, attention will be
directed to drivers who would vio-
late the drivei-r license laws of
Florida.
The, patrol has found these
checkpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equipment
and driver license laws of Florida
ensuring the protection of all
motorists.


Republican Party is very bright.
He attributes this to two things.
First, the spectacle surrounding
the presidential election has moti-
vated many to change their voter'
registration out of anger and dis-
gust with the national Democratic
Party. Secondly, Ross feels that on
a more fundamental basis, the
residents of Gulf County seem to,
have beliefs and values that more
closely parallel those of the


Republican Party. "This bodes
well for the Party's future growth,"
said Ross.
Finally, Mr. Ross identified
three objectives for the local
Republican Party to pursue:
increase the number of registered
Republican voters, find and field
qualified candidates for public
office, identify individuals who
can be recommended to serve on
public boards and commissions.


In addition, he said the
Republican Party plans to take an
active role and use whatever influ-
ence and talents they might have
to help advance and safeguard the
interests of Gulf County.
"We live in a special and
unique place, and, as Republi-
cans, we will do what ever we can
to help maintain and protect the
special quality of life that is Gulf
County."


REPUBLICAN PARTY OFFICERS-Seated, Sandra Chafin, Sara Ross, and Cindy Belin. Standing, Gary
Ross, Ralph Roberson, Allen Cox and Jorge San Pedro.


Consumer Math Speakers
Students in Christine White's Consumer Math class at Port
St. Joe High School have been studying about automobile
expenses for the past week. Included in the study was going on
the internet to research the car of their choice, discussing stick-
er price, making the loan, insurance, and many other expenses
involved in owning and operating an automobile.
Shown above (in the inset) is Bill Wood from State Farm
Insurance Company who discussed automobile insurance. Betty
Moore, Vice President of Lending from Citizens Federal Savings
and Loan bank, discussed making loans, the application, inter-
est rates, etc.
The students thank both Mrs. Moore and Mr. Wood for taking
time from their busy schedules to go and speak to the class.

Sharks Advance with 24-14 Victory


Will Host Greensboro Friday -


The seventh ranked Port St.
Joe Sharks advanced to the sec-
ond round of the Class A state.
play-offs with Friday night's 28-
14 victory over Cottondale in the
region quarter-finals.
"Anytime you win a play-off
game, you're going in the right'
direction," said head coach Chuck
Gannon. "Our kids played hard
and we are right where we 1xanted
to be, hosting Greensboro at
home." ;
The Sharks took the opening
kick-off from the Hornets and
quickly showed how powerful
their offense, led by senior quar-
terback Seneca Chambers, could
be.
After an illegal procedure
penalty before the first play from
scrimmage, Chambers dumped a
pass off to Kyron Bailey in the,
flats for an 11 yard gain. Cham-
bers then took an option keeper
around the right siqe and scam-
pered 10 yards for 'a first down.
On the ensuing play, Cham-
bers and Bailey hooked up on a
slip screen- Bailey got a good
block from Isaiah Jenkins, then
raced 40 yards down the side line
to give the Sharks a first anti goal
from the Cottondale five yard line.
Chambers capped off the 61-yard
drive with a five yard touchdown
on a quarterback, keeper to. puf
Port St. Joe on the scoreboard.
Steffen Trabert added the point
after touchdown to give the
Sharks a 7-0 lead with 10:29 left
,in the first quarter.
The Hornets manufactured
two good offensive series in the.
first quarter, driving deep into
Shark territory before turning the
ball over on downs-once on the
Port St. Joe 39 yard line and the
other on the 15.
Port St. Joe extended its lead
to 14-0 with 4:38 left in the half
when Chambers ended an eight-
play 64-yard drive with a 21 yarcf
touchdown pass to Bailey on a
. fade route. During the drive,
: Chambers picked up a big first
down when he scrambled out of
the pocket for a 16 yard gain.'
Another drive saving play was
when Lamar Patterson recovered
a fumble on the Hornets' 21 yard
line after an 11 yard run by Reg-
gie Quinn.
The Sharks kept Cottonrdale
off the' board the rest of the first'
half as Tyson Davis and Cham-
bers each had drive-ending inter-
Dr ceptions on the Hornets',next two
possessions. 1-
Cottondale finally managed to
put a long drive into the enidzone
with 7:45 left in the fourth quar-
ter, narrowing the Sharks' lead to
14-7. Chris Dawson capped off a
nine-play 92-yard drive with a 16
yard touchdown run. Dawson had
five carries for 59 yards during
the drive.
The Sharks bounced back to
regain a 14 point lead when
Lamar Patterson took an inside
hand-off and raced 21 yards to
end a 64-yard scoring drive. Tra-
bert added the extra point for a
21-7 lead with 6:03 left in the
S fourth quarter. Reggie Quinn had
three carries for 23 yards and Pat-
S terson also had a 13 yard run


during the drive.
Port St. Joe then extended its
lead to 28-7 with 4:13 remaining,
when Chambers took a quarter-
back keeper 73 yards for a touch-
down. Trabert finished the night
perfect, adding his fourth point
after touchdown of the night.
The Hornets added one final
drive before the end of regulation.
Cottondale drove 65 yards in 12;
plays, scoring on a four yard:
touchdown r pass fiom quarter-
back Adam Scurlock to Altus
Williams with :05 seconds left in
the game to narrow the Sharks'
lead to 28-14.
Quarterback Seneca Cham-,
bers led the Sharks with 234
yards of total offense. Chambers
picked up 127 on 11 carries with
two touchdowns, while complet-.;

and six assists (8) with one inter-
ception and, three batted down
passes.
"Cottondale is a good football
team. They had 373 yards of total
offense, but we kept them out of
the endzone most of the night,"
added Gannon.
The Sharks (9-2) will try to
revenge their 27-21 loss to
Greensboro in their final regular
season game, when they host the
Bulldogs Friday night at 7:30 ET
in the region semi-finals.
"I put up on the board in the
locker, room 27-21, I think the
kids take care of getting up for
Greensboro from there," said
Gannon. "We will have to shut,
down running back Tremayne
James. -and not allow, them, to

against us up there."
"We didn't run the ball good
against them last time, but our
coaches and kids feel like we can.
But we can't turn the football over
if we want to win," concluded
Gannon.

Don't Get Lit Up by Your Fire Extinguisher


by: Chris Floyd
Disaster Services Director
Capital Area Chapter American
Red Cross
Each year, about 440 people
in the United States die inside
their home after trying to fight a
fire with a fire extinguisher
instead of getting out safely and
calling'the fire department. The


reasons this happens, according
to the National Fire Protection
Association are:
They do not know how to
properly use a fire extinguisher.
Most people can not learn how to
use a fire extinguisher ,by simply
reading directions. Using a fire
extinguisher properly requires
training from professionals. It is


Since the average gasoline
engine bums only 68% of each
gallon that you pump into it. and
since the unbumt fuel leaving an
engine is pollution, the platinum
of the catalytic converter bums
the 32% of your fuel that did
not burn in the engine.
Unfortunately, the converter's
platinum bums this gasoline in
the tail pipe, where the heat and
energy produced from burning
this fuel cannot be harnessed to
drive your vehicle.
But by adding platinum to the
air-fuel mixture, the Gas Saver
burns most of this fuel while it
is still ifiside the engine,
converting potential pollution


even more difficult to read direc-
tions for the first time during an
emergency.
Not all fire extinguishers
will work on all fires. Home fire
extinguishers are made for very
small fires that can be put out
quickly.
People try to fight fires for
too long and are overcome by poi-


sonous gasscs produced by the
fire.
The fire is bigger than the
extinguisher they'tried to use was
designed for.
The American Red Cross rec-
omrmends the following advice for
safety during fires:

Device Mav Increase Gas Mileage Si nificantlv Test Data


BOSTON After studying the
Platinum Gas Saver for five years,
Federal Consumer Protection
concluded: "Independent testing
shows greater fuel savings with
the device than that claimed by the
developer (National Fuelsaver
Corporation of Boston)."
With a simple connection to
a vacuum line, thc Gas Saver
adds microscopic quantities of
platinum to the air-fuel mixture
entering your.engine,
Platinum was. chosen for the
Gas Saver for the same reason
that if was chosen for the
catalytic converter. Platinum
has the unique ability to make
non-burning fuel burn.


into 22% more miles per gallon.
In addition to this government
study, the Gas Saver has received
patents for cleaning out the
carbon deposits and raising
octane, making premium fuel
unnecessary for most vehicles'.'
Joel Robinson, the developer,
commented: "We have sold over
400,000 Gas Savers. To our
surprise, as many people buy the'
Gas Saver because it extends
engine life (by cleaning out the
abrasive. carbon' deposits) as
buy it to increase gas mileage
or raise octane.",
For further information call:
1-800-537-7427 or:
1-617-244-1210


The government studied fuel saving
test data on vehicles made by several
auto makers using the Gas Saver.
This is the data they produced from
a fleet of 15 identical 5-liter vehicles.

case of a fire is to get away from it
safely and call the fire department
from another location away from
the fire. Have a fire escape plan
and a safe meeting point for your
family. Practice your plan I
It still is a good idea to.
place a fire extinguisher in your
home near each place where fire
may start, such as the kitchen,
garage, workshop, barbecue area
etc. An extinguisher should only
be used on a very small fire that
can be put out quickly. Also.
install smoke detectors and test
them monthly. Replace batteries
once a year or when the alarm
does not sound when the unit is
tested.
Get a fire extingufsher that
is rated A-B-C. which is designed
for fires that most often occur at
home. For more Information on
the type and size of fire extin-
guisher you need for specific loca-
tions in your home. contact your
local fire department.

This year's Historic Apalach-
icola Christmas Celebration will
light up Apalachicola on Novem-
ber 24th, from 3:00 until 9:00
p.m. The streets of downtown
Apalachicola will be lined with
luminaries and filled with holiday
spirit. Merchants will be open late

ties for the kids.
The sounds of carolers will
echo through the streets filling
the evening with Christmas spirit.
There will be horse-drawn car-
riage rides available to take visi-
tors through Apalachicola's
historic downtown.
The highlight, of course, will
be the big guy -himself. Santa will

Water Street, across from City
Hall. Santa will hear children's

Boyd Elected
Leader of the Pack
As North Florida Congress-
man Allen Boyd (D) enters his
third term in the U. S. House of
Representatives, he will be play-
ing a leadership role in one of
Congress' most influential coali-
tions, the Blue Dogs. At this
week's Blue Dog Caucus meeting
the membership elected the three
person slate of Co-Chairs. The
three equally powerful slots will
be manned by Allen Boyd (D-FL),
Co-Chair for Communications
and Outreach, Rep. Jim Turner
(D-TX), Co-Chair for Policy, Rep.
Chris John (D-LA), Co-Chair for
Administration.
The narrow margin separat-
ing the majority from the minority
will increase the importance of
the role the 32 member Blue Dog
coalition will play in the 107th
Congress. With the Presidency
still undeclared, this coalition will
be looked upon to bridge the gap
between the parties and promote
common sense legislation, rooted
in fiscal responsibility.
The Blue Dogs, who picked
up five additional members in this
election cycle, have become
increasingly, notorious in Wash-
ington .throughout their sLx year
'existence. They have established
a reputation for being successful
negotiators between the two par-
ties and promoting bipartisan leg-
islation that highlights the impor-
tance of fiscal prudence.
"The Blue Dogs enter the new
Congress with the task of bridging
the gap between the two parties
and passing fiscally responsible.
legislation," said Boyd. "I am hon-
ored that my fellow Blue Dogs
have entrusted me to fill this
important leadership position for
the coalition," said Boyd.

Ten Ways to Beat Holiday Stress


If the mere thought of the
upcoming holiday season Is
.enough to make you grit your
teeth; you're not alone. Our mod-
ern culture has turned the
Thanksgiving-to-New-Year's stret-
ch into something of a marathon
that, for many people, is more
work than it's worth.
Yet you can beat holiday
stress with the right attitude and
a little planning. TOPS Club, Inc.
provides this "TOPS 10" list of
ways to get a handle on the holi-
days.

1. Prioritize. what's vital to a great
holiday celebration? What can
you do without, especially
when time runs short?
2. Don't rely solely on memory.
Make a list of important things
to do.
3. Exercise regularly. You'll feel
great, with more energy to
tackle those extra holiday
tasks.
4. Always allow extra time. And
schedule, a catch-up day every
so often to finish projects that
take longer than planned.


5. Keep emergency supplies of
necessities on hand. Stock up
now on the things that always
turn up short at the last
minute: postage stamps for
cards, wire hangers for orna-
ments, wrapping paper, and so
on.
-6. Relax your standards on issues
that aren't important.to you.
7..Cherish traditions that have
personal meaning, but remem-
ber that they're not written in
stone. Maybe you'd' rather
spend more time caroling with


friends and less time hanging,
decorative lights.. .or vice versa.
8. Shortcuts can be life savers.
From fully-decorated trees to
precurled package ribbons,.
these items allow lavish deco-
ration with a scant investment:
of time.
9. Start saying "no" when you're
already overcommitted.
10.Keep asking yourself "Are we6
having fun yet?" if not, rethink.
what you're doing!
