Arizona Chemical For Sale


International Pap Plans to est Interest In Some Holdings


International Paper
announced on. Thursday,
November 30th, that it plans to
divest Arizona Chemical to pro-
vide a better long-term future for
the pine chemical business. This
decision comes; in conjunction
with' IP's previously announced
$3 billion divestiture program to
sell non-critical assets.
"International.. Paper believes
Arizona Chemical will be very
attractive to another company."
said Larry Stowell, vice president-
Arizona Chemical. "We under-
stand this announcement will
create uncertainty for Arizona
Chemical employees, their fami-
lies. and other stakeholders, and
we will do all we can to assist
employees with any issues that
arise during this divestiture
process."
According to Stowell.
International Paper's intentions
are to sell the business as a com-
plete entity. "At this time. we don't


know how long this process will
take, and it's premature to specu-
* late on any outcomes. The best
business strategy for all of us, on.
the Arizona Chemical team is to
continue our focus on our cus-
tomers, environmental and safety
performance, and the future of
this business."
Arizona Chemical is a global
leader in pine chemistry.
Headquartered in Jacksonville.
the company has eight manufac-
turing plants in the U.S. and
seven in Europe, and supplies
pine chemicals to the adhesives.
inks and coatings and oleochemi-
cals markets. Three of those eight
plants are located in the panhan-
dle of Florida at Port St. Joe,
Panama City, and Pensacola.
Arizona Chemical also has
research and development capa-
bilities and a network of sales
offices throughout the world. The
company employs 2,000 people.


All indications are that
Arizona Chemical should be very
marketable, but there is no way to
tell how the change might affect
any of the company's plants.

est products.

Giant Nuclear Generator Wants to

Ride the A alachicola to Alabama


Everyone who has been
watching events revolving around
maintenance dredging of the
Apalachicola River remembers
what happened last spring when
the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
artificially created a short naviga-
tional window for barges to make
their way up the nverway.
Tons of fish died when
stranded as the water flow was
cut back off after barges had
passed. Worse yet, large numbers
of fish had began spawning along
the sandy flood plain, and when
water, levels dropped they and
their eggs were left to parch in
shallow pools of remaining water.
Measures have since been
taken-to deauthorize the naviga-
tional maintenance dredging. This
fight has made its way to
Washington with strong support
from Congressman Allen Boyd


and .Senator Bob Grah am, along .,ce from..elected officials, envi-
with most of the "M iht'Tng "1nrirtalists; and concerned cit-
Florida legislators. izens from throughout Florida. It

An article in last Thursday's
Tallahassee Democrat brought
the question back to the forefront
announcing a proposal by the
Army Corps of Engineers to create
another "navigational window"
using upstream water reservoirs
in Alabama and Georgia. The
effort would permit three new
giant steam generators to barge
up the Apalachicola to the Farley
Nuclear Plant on the Chatta-
hoochee River. near Dothan,
Alabama.
This proposal has drawn con-

man on several drug and alcohol
related charges.
Twenty-six year old 'Sarabia.

Tiller, the licensed owner. of
the. club, was charged with pos-
session of cocaine with the intent

ducted a pat down and hand-
cuffed the suspect.,
Tiller was also charged with
the sale of marijuana stemming,
from a marijuana purchase by an
undercover operative while inside
the club.

Hunker Down With Kes

Possum Festival, Goat


Day, Seafood Festival,


Mule Day


... Christmas


On The Coast? ? ?

The 1st Annual Christmas on the Coast was three days. of fes-
tivities that is hoped to be the beginning of something big.
As members of the Port St., Joe Merchants Association and
local volunteers contributed to the planning and organization of
"Christmas on the Coast." the vision was that one day the event
might rival Mule .Day, the Possum Festival or Goat Day.
This may, sound like: an ambitious goal, ,but then again who
would have ever imagined that the Possum Festival would turn
into a gigantic event? Or for that matter, why do people travel from
near and far to go to Goat Day in Blountstown?
"Christmas on the Coast" may or may not have that special for-
mula required to become a major attraction, but there is no doubt
about it-"Christmas on the Coast" was special. The theme of fam-
ily-oriented spiritually-based activities blended with traditional
Christmas flavor added much to the weekend.
I do. have to confess, when I saw Billy Dixson and Johnny
Jenkins with Bibles in hand waiting with baited breath to get on
the podium at Thursday's 'tree lighting program, I thought we
might be in for an all-nighter.
It was a weekend that offered much diversity, including a light-
ed boat parade, art, crafts, food, Santa, Christmas parade, and
spiritual concert featuring the Evans family Saturday evening.
It takes a lot of folks to put on this number of activities. These
volunteers gave up countless hours of their time in order to make
"Christmas on the Coast" very special. The community owes a debt
of gratitude to those who helped bring this activity together.
It wouldn't surprise me one little bit if one day in the not-too-
distant future "Christmas on the Coast" was mentioned in the'
same sentence as the other major events in this area.


As the Water Flows..0.

Last week, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials
; announced a proposal to release water from upstream reservoirs
so Farley Nuclear Power Plant could have a few new steam gener-
ators barged up river.
Now, ain't that a heck-of-a-note!!!
We've been begging for some time to have that trickle of water '
being sent our way increased; but Alabama and Georgia have
shuddered to think about the impact of losing water from their
reservoirs.
But, let's mention floating some generators up the river for
Alabama and the Corps is ready to pull the plug. This idea has met
with much protest from Florida, as well as most environmental
groups.
We remember what happened just a few short months ago
when the Corps decided- to 'create 'a short navigational window, ,
then left zillions of fish highi'and dry by shutting the wateroff and
trapping them on the hill to die. ,
Well, the Corps caught a lot of heat for that. and they are now ,,
finding out that folks haven't forgotten what took place. They have
decided to postpone a decision on this proposal until after a pub-
lic meeting is held (sometime-in December) to discuss the idea.
Based on what I'm reading and hearing, they better bring some
extra thick ear muffs and two packs of Rolaids to this meeting. A
-date for the public meeting hasn't-been announced yet, -but when
it is we'll be sure and let everyone' know. if we know.


I don't change the names* in
many of my little blurbs. Shucks,
making up a name takes time and
imagination. I don't seem to have
much of either. The story you are
about to read is true. One name
has been changed to protect the
guilty.
Mr. Smith-Jones taught biolo-
gy and agriculture and was the


sponsor ol the FFA %hen I was in
high school He had taught forever
in several schools in the surround-
inm area. He wvas an excellent
teacher. He was an even better
guy..
He could be a tad eccentric at
times. Shucks, he could be about
half crazy at times! I remember he
got so mad at' me and Bobby,
Jackson for accidentally cutting off
his laboratory frog's leg. He was
hopping up and down . But
that's another story.
Mr. Smith-Jones, in the ver-
nacular of the ever present' student
grading system that exist on all
teachers, was "A-O.K." Every child


that had ever sat in his classroom
understood lull well that "he was
on our side."
He retired years ago. He has
kept himself active in the interven-
ing years by playing golf. weaving
cane chairs,. and brewing home-
made wine in his basement. And
he had his dogs. .Mr. Smith-Jones
was always ,especially proud to
have an old hound or two around
the house;,
About a year ago a couple of
well-heeled dudes came all the way
up from Memphis and leased some
hunting land just down the road
from Mr. Smith-Jones. These guys
were serious! They had big four


wheel dnve pick-ups, fancy dog
boxes. high powered Italian rifles.
night scopes, thousand dollar dogs
.... They even had a mobile home
moved in and set up so they'd have
a place to "sleep over" on long
weekend hunts.
It didn't take but a day or so
'for those high priced dogs to start
kicking up a right fair sized racket.
Two of Mr. Smith-Jones' beagles
wandered over to take a look see.
Well, it seems these pretty impor-
tant city fellers didn't take too
kindly to a couple of ol scraggly
short-leggers making in with their
"good" dogs. Especially on lnd
they had leased.
They shot and killed both
dogs.


Mr. Smith-Jones went to the
sheriff. The sheriff was a former
student and would have done any-
thing in the world for his old
teacher. "Did you actually "see
them shoot the dogs?"
"No, I didn't. But I know it was
them. Everybody knows it was
them!"
"I'm sorry," the lawman knew
the score, "bu t it would be your
word against theirs. It would be a
long drawn out process that you
couldn't win. I'm afraid there's
nothing I can do."
Mr. Smith-Jories pondered on
the situation for three or four min-
utes.
He hopped in his old, car and
headed out to where Highway 54
crosses the north fork of the Obion
River. A new bridge was, under
construction. "Bret, do you liave
any dynamite?"
"Sure, Mr. Smith-Jones," Bret
was about half drifting through
school until Mr. Smith-Jones saw
something in him that none of us
detected and took a special irnter-
est .... his grades got better, and
more better .. I was over atl his
house when the letter came With
the scholarship offer from the
engineering school; "What do you
need it for?"
"I'm going to blow up a mobile
home!" ,
'"Yoiuite jkiddingl" 'Course, he
saw at once that he wasn't. "I can't
let you have dynamite for some-
thing like that!"
"Bret," Mr. Smith-Jones had
that way of looking you right dead
square in the eye when he talked
to you, "they shot my dogs."
The former pupil pondered for
a moment. He had a great career
that he truly enjoyed. It had led
him to .a wonderful family and a
wonderful life. He thought of the
direction his' life had been on at
one time .
'".Mi-r Smith-Jondes, I'll blow it
up for you. You don't need to be
messing with aniy dynamite. I can
'put one stick just right in, a gallon
of gasoline and show them, some
sure 'nuff fire power."
"I not going to let you do that.
You are in no. way 'going to get
involved with this I'll be glad to

It's Beginning to Look (and Taste) a Lot Like Christmas...Everywhere


I'M SORRY I MISSED the
festivities this past weekend. It
was a busy weekend in Port St.
Joe; all for the' entertainment of
our citizens at Christmastime.
I'm stire it was a better pro-'
gram than NBC's "Christmas at
Rockefeller Center" 'last
Wednesday night. Surely that
production cost a pretty penny.
It's a shame that a person could-
n't understand a word of the
songs. The only number which
was understandable was Natalie
Cole's rendition of a Christmas
song. ,
But, back to my subject.
I spent the weekend in
Callaway Gardens, viewing the
expansive Christmas' lights. I've,
seen them before, :but there is a
. slight change each year. Too, my
son, Ray, drove us tq the gardens
and back and itw..as. the only
weekend he had: available to
make the trip;. It was also. the
only week wie could get reserva-
tions before Christmas.


It must'be nice to have your
facilities sold out.

CALLAWAY GARDENS deco-
rates with millions--not thou-
'sands., but- milliorrs-of'. lights,
strategically placed along an
eight mile stretch of the gardens.
and attracts visitors from all over
to see their handiwork.
'". They have squirrelsf running
up and down trees, frogs jumping
in ponds 'splashing the water, the
12 days of'Christmas, the world's
.largest lighted Christmas tree. a
section of about a 'mile' with a
string of lights ,,hanging 'from
every pine tree. 1imb., i.icle"fash-


ion. There's numerous other dis-'
plays, too, all concocted to
delight the eye.
It was the' first Christmas
weekend extravaganza, put on by
the local merchants I have ever
missed and it had, to be the
biggest they have ever put on!
'The Christmas -parade and
surrounding.activities are usual-
ly something nobody would miss
on purpose.
I went., to Bob King
Wednesday to have a tooth filled,
and Bob was bending my ear [as,
he usually does] about the
upcoming weekend and what 'a
fine time it promised to be.


Bob also remarked at what a
good service the merchants per-
form each year, producing the'
Christmas activities and provid-,
ing a, vehicle for other clubs and,
organizations to help with 'the
celebration.

'OF COURSE, A TRIP to
,.Callaway Gardens means; a peri-1
od of some' mighty good eating,
too. As if the holiday season did-
n't provide- ample opportunity
and excuse to over, indulge,
already!
Why, while I am typing this
weekly morsel, my attention is
drawn to a hand-written note on
'the copy board, for a classified
ad, which says: "This month, lose
weight without sacrificing your
favorite' holiday fdods! 100%.
guaranteed!" .
It seems to me that if there
were such a method of enjoying
all the good things a person
enjoys' to, eat, without gaining
weight, it would be common


knowledge
Keeping such a secret is as
bad as having a cure for 'cancer
and keeping it secret. It's just as
un-American.
.I'll make no bones about it,
everything I eat too much of
turns to avoirdupoise. Then, it's
work like the. devil to6 get it off; or
be. faced with the: task of pur-
chasing larger pants.

I ATE TOO MUCH over the
weekend; but then I knew I
would, if I went to the land of
home-made biscuits and jelly;
the land of stone-ground, speck-
led grits, cornbread and real but-
terl.
A trip to Callaway Gardens
means eating breakfast at the
Country Store.
A breakfast at the Country
Store includes eggs, bacon,
sausage, ham, pancakes, speck-
led grits, buttered "cathead" bis-
cuits, jellies, jams, and white
cream gravyl You ask, "How does


a person get all this down?" Well,
it isn't easy, but mandatory!'
Like I said earlier, I have. seen
the Callaway Garden lights sever-
al times in the. past, but' hot so
often as the fellow from North
Carolina who sat in the "Jolly
Trolley" in front of me. "He said it
. was the sixth year. in succession
he had visited .'the gardens at
Christmastime, just to see what
they would come up with next.
SOf 'course, this, production
isn't just out of the goodness of
their heart. There' is ample
opportunity to make a purchase
or two on the. garden grounds,
too.'
A huge tent has several busi-
nesses offering everything from
colorful lights to expensive hand-
made carvings and aft "work for
sale. I could have purchased an
entire electric train'; along with a
village, for $1,500, if I had want-
ed to. It was like looking, at a
Sears, Roebuck Christmas cata-
log and seeing all the things one
wanted.

Just In Case You
Haven't Heard
Dear Editor:
Please see below regarding a
new phone scam that apparently
AT&T has verified as being legiti-
mate. Please beware whether at
home or at work.
Phone Scam
Here's how it works: You will
receive a message on your
answering machine or your pager,
which asks you to call a number
beginning with area code 809. The
reason you're asked to call varies.
If you call from the US, you will
apparently be charged $2425 per
minute. Or, you'll get a long
recorded message. The point is,
they will try to keep you on the
phone as long a possible to
increase the charges. Unfor-
tunately, when you get your
phone bill, you'll often be charged
more than $24100.
Why It Works
The .809 area code is located
in the British Virgin Islands (The
Bahamas). The 809 Area code can
be used as a "pay-per-call" num-
ber, similar to 900 numbers in
the United States. ,
Since 809 is not in the U.S., it
is not covered by U.S, regulations
of 900 numbers, which require
that you be notified and warned of
charges and rates involved when
you call a "pay-per-call" number.
U.S.. phones have 900 num-
ber blocking to avoid these kinds
of charges; but 900 number
blocking will not prevent calls to
the 809 area code.:We recommend
that no matter how you get the
message, if you are asked to call a
number with an 809 area code
that you don't recognize and/or
investigate further and just disre-
gard the message. Beware of e-
mail or calls asking you to call an
809 area code number.

coach Chuck Gannon announced
his resignation from both posi-
tions earlier this week. Gannon
will finish out the remainder of
the school year as athletic direc-
tor.
Gannon compiled a 37-22

1999. Port St. Joe reached the
region semi-finals in three of his
last four seasons, and the region

or baseball.
A letter of thanks to the com-
munity from Coach Gannon is
printed below:
To The People of Port St. Joe
Time has come for me to step
down as Head Coach and Athletic
Director. Planning and, running
the varsity football program as
well as being the athletic director
of such a great sports' program is
very time consuming. I need to be
able to spend more time with my
family, to watch my children play,
and to be part of their programs.
I have enjoyed the time I have
spent as head coach of Port St.
Joe. It was always a goal of mine
to be a head football coach, and I
appreciate former superintendent
Walter Wilder and former princi-
pal Wes Taylor for giving me the
opportunity to run this program.
Thank you, Jerry Kelley and Chris
Earley, for continuing to have the-


same faith in me.
I would like to thank all of the
people who have been involved
with the football program during
my tenure as Head Coach. Many,
people have been a vital part of
our program. I appreciate all of
the people who helped cook, all
who drove the buses, the chain
gang, the announcers, all those
involved with Homecoming and
Senior Night, and anyone. else'
that I may have overlooked.
I want to thank the faculty
and staff of Port St. Joe High
School for all the help and sup-
port that you have given me
throughout the years. In addition,
thanks to the maintenance peo-
ple, the cafeteria workers, and
especially Mrs. Cumbie, Mrs.
Sewell, Mrs. Bouington, Mr.
Brumbaugh, Mrs. Seay, Mrs.
Ramsey, and Mr. Wilder. God
Bless all of you.
There are two other groups
that I have not mentioned that I
must thank. First are the fans.
You are the BEST in'the state of
Florida. Not only do you support

very much. Last and probably the

we endured some good times and
some bad times. Most' of all I hope
that you can take away from this

into the program.
But most of all thank you
Sue, Matthew, and Megan for
being there when I need you most.
I hope to continue to assist in
baseball and possibly coach foot-

Good-bye Coach
Well folks God has done it again,
since He made us I guess He can.
He not only took a good man home,
He took many people's friend.
We mourn with Joyce his wife and
best friend, and all the rest of
Coach Faison's kin.
When In high school.
he was my coach back then.
He'll be Coach to me
until I see him again.
He could be tough If given any flak,
but if you did a good job he'd pat
you on the back.
Many times when jogging I'd go by
his home, he'd be cleaning that
yard with a fine tooth comb.
He kept his yard looking great as
many can attest.
You might see him walking as he
did most every day.
I've passed him when he'd turn and
point the %way he'd come. he said,
"there's plenty down there, but it
sure Is hot that way."
Where Coach is walking today,
there is no hot or cold.
the roads in heaven are different,
they're made of solid gold.
Well, Coach I'll say good-bye,
I'll see you again some day.
When you run across Big Gene or
Bob tell them I said, "Hey."

of a $ 15,000 grant possibility that
would provide an emergency
power supply for the building.
Commissioners agreed to help
'pursue the grant application.
Designs for this building were'
completed by Carr Engineering of
Panama City and the local draft-
ing firm of Willie Roche. It will
accommodate 20 to 25 frail, elder-
ly men or women who are depen-
dent on oxygen for their life sup-
port.
During times of emergency a
shelter manager, nurse, and food
and water supplies will be provid-
ed.

cial thanks to the Gulf Correc-
btonal Institute through the sup-
port of the Gulf County Board of

for this project and we are
extremely grateful to him," Stokoe
added.

Factoid: After the loss of sev-
eral treasure fleets along the
. northern Gulf Coast, the King of
Spain ordered that a settlement
be made on Escambia Bay. An
expedition left Veracruz, Mexico
on the llth of June, 1559 and
reached St. Joseph's Bay about
July 4th. After taking on water
and grass and probably camping
in the Dixie Belle Curve area of St.
Joseph's Ba. the fleet left to
e'.entually found the first
European isitlement in conlinen-
tal LUnited States at Pensacola. In
1561 the settlement was aban-
doned because of natural disas-
ters and the incompetence of the
leaders chosen for the expedition.

Call for Coats
ALLTEL, in partnership with.
the Salvation Army, is collecting i
coats to donate to area children as
part of ALLTEL's Call for Coats
campaign.
During last year's campaign,
nearly 2,000 coats were collected
in ALLTEL markets across the
country.
"Having a warm coat to wear
on a cold winter day is a comfort.
that most people may take for
granted," said Maj. Gene Gesner.
corps officer of the Salvation Army
in Tallahassee. "Yet in reality,
many area, children do not have
coats' or continue wearing the
.ones that they have outgrown. We
are very grateful for ALLTEL's
willingness to help in the effort to
provide children with much
needed coats."
Individuals can donate coats
at any ALLTEL retail store from
.now through December 15. ALL-
TEL will then present the coats to
the Salvation Army.
"Answering ALLTEL's Call for
Coats is a simple way to put the
warmth back in the holiday sea-
son for area :children," said,
Carlvin Steed, ALLTEI's vice pres-
ident and general manager for the
Florida Panhandle market area.
"We hope everybody will take afew
minutes to stop by their nearest
ALLTEL retail store and donate
any coats they no longer use or
consider buying a new coat to
donate while out Christmas shop-
ping."
ALLTEL in the Port St. Joe .-
area is located at 200 Reid
Avenue.
ALLTEL, with more than 10
million communications cus-
tomers, almost $7 billion in

Propagation is a good way to
expand your collection of house
plants. There are four methods of
propagating plants; seeds, cut-
tings, division and layering.
In article I will explain how
one can generate new house
plants through division and layer-
ing. My information on these top-
ics were provided by Extension
Horticulturalist Dr. Robert J.
Black with IFSA of the University
of Florida.
Creating new plants through
division is one of the easiest
methods of house plant propaga-
tion. One can. simply pull apart
and divide one large plant into
two or more separate plants. This
method is commonly used with
sansevieria, African violets, and
other plants that produce several
shoots off the central growing
point. Division can be done by
hand, or by using a knife. But, be
sure .to handle the plants careful-
ly, to leave as many intact roots
as possible. After dividing a plant,
place each new section in its own
growing medium, and give it the
same care as its parent plant.
Layering is a much more
complicated method of propaga-
tion, which encourages plant
stems to root while they're still
attached to the parent plant. Air,
tip mound, and trench are all lay-
ering techniques, which provide
new plants with nutrients and
water from the parent plant, until
their roots begin to develop air
and tip layering are the methods
most often used by home garden-
ers.
For air layering, select a
young, healthy, vigorously grow-
ing branch, whose leaves are
exposed to light. Branches from
pencil size to about three-fourth,
of an inch in diameter are best for
this purpose. Next, one will need
a sharp knife, a couple of hand-
fuls of sphagnum moss, a six-by-
eight inch sheet of polyethylene
film, and two rubber bands. One
should have all these items on
hard before 6iff begins,'because-
after one has cut the branch the
stem will dry out very quickly.
The first step is to remove
leaves and twigs about four inch-
es above and below where one
makes the cut. Make a slanting
upward cut about one-fourth to
one-half of the way through the
bottom of the branch. On large,
thick branches, smaller cuts can
be made .on either side. Now,
insert a match stick, or toothpick,
in the cut, to prevent new bark
'from forming and healing the
wound.
Next, encase the cut area with
a wrapping of damp sphagnum
moss, about the size of a baseball.
Then, cover the moss with poly-


ethylene film, and 'close the ends
with rubber bands about and
below the cut, to seal out air.
It may take anywhere from
two weeks to several months for
roots to form. One can watch the
progress through the clear plastic/
film. When at least six roots have
formed, cut off the layered portion
form the parent plant, just below
the root ball, and pot it.
Tip layering works well for
drooping and vining plants.
Choose a low branch, which one
can easily bend to the ground.
Scrape the bark from a small area
about six to twelve inches back
from the tip, bring the branch
down to the ground, and cover the
scraped area with soil, anchoring
it securely in the earth'. Keep the
leafy tip exposed. When roots'
develop from the scraped area,
cut the layered tip from its parent
and plant it.
