National Shutters,
Inc. Announces.
Groundbreaking
Another small business is
announcing plans to locate in
Gulf County and bring much
needed jobs.. ,
According to a press release
the Gulf County Economic
Development Council will host a
groundbreaking ceremony for
National Shutters. Inc. at the
Light Industnal/Retail Park at
Cosun Airpark. The public is cor-
dially invited to attend the cere-
monv on,- Fnday. January 5th.
beginning at -f0:0 a.m.
Wayne Parker. president -and
owner of National Shutters. Inc..
has purchased two acres and will
build a 5.000 square foot building
to house his fabrication and retail
sales office.
National Shutters, Inc. will
manufacture a complete line of
storm shutters for contractors as
well as retail sales for those inter-
ested in doing their own installa-
tion. The business will employ
approximately 15 new employees
from the Gulf County area in the
fabrication shop.
The equipment and building
is on order and start-up is slated
for March, 2001. Mr. Parker says,
f am extremely pleased with how
well I've been received in Gulf
County."


As we ended 1999. there were
many questions surrounding the
future of Gulf County and how
things would shape up if indeed
the mill never re-opened.
The final answer to that ques-
tion came early in 2000. and
came as no big surprise to work-
ers. local government officials, or
businessmen, most of whom had
seen the handwriting on the wall
several months earlier.
Nonetheless, in early January.
a federal judge approved the
Stone Container Company bank-
ruptcy plan. then before the
month was over. the final word
came down and the fate of the mill
was announced.
During the remainder of
2000. other Smurfit-Stone mills,
have taken pieces of the plant for
their use and just recently
(November) Ferrel Allen, former
general manager of the mill, and
Smurfit-Stone representative,
announced that the plant would
start being demolished sometime
in 2001.
While this may not be the
number #1 story of 2000, it was
certainly the final chapter of a 62-
year ride, of industrial and eco-
nomic bliss for Gulf County.

amazing transition has been the
discovery of a new economy for
Gulf County.


full force. The community was
able to get a first hand glimpse in
October of exactly what the


records are being set by the
department as folks buy permits
for construction.


A. :


Gulf Correctional Institution and Gulf County
Shipbuilding have brought a major portion
of the new jobs to Gulf County in 2000.


This story is rather complicat-
ed though, because there are so
many different pieces to the puz-
zle.
Early in 2000. newly appoint-
ed Econorruc Development Vice-
President for the St. Joe Company
Neal Wade proclaimed to mem-
bers of the Gulf County Chamber
of Commerce during their annual
banquet that. "Gulf County is a
priority." Indeed, several of the
projects accomplished over the
past year had the St. Joe
Company's help in bringing the
--prjfects together? -'" -- .*.
The thing that makes it so dif-
ficult to put a finger on any one
project is that most development
over the year has been through
small businesses. .The one.excep-
tion tothat has been the contin-
ued expansion of the Gulf
Correctional Institute annex.
Without -a doubt, the single
most important economic boom to
the county has been GCI's expan-
sion over the past twvo years. The
latest round of hires came in
August when GCI announced a
need for another 50 new correc-
tions' officers.
Gulf County Shipbuilding has
also drawn significant attention
as its workforce has expanded to
nearly half of the !61 employees
projected to man the operations
when the company is running in


SWATH design vessels will look
like when completed. The Nekton
Pilot came to town for dry dock
maintenance and restoration.
The Nekton Rorqual is expect-
ed to be constructed, and then
launched sometime this year from
the company's location along the
Gulf County Canal.
Several other small business-
es and retail stores have opened
their doors over the past year.
popping up throughout the coun-
ty. These small businesses are
considered by most economists to
". 'be the healthiest type of growth
that a community can have.
Many of these small busi-
nesses are poised to take advan-
tage of an ever expanding tourist
and visitor trade to the area.
Maybe Gulfs #1 natural amenity
is on the verge, of being discov-
ered.
"Dr. Beach" proclaimed that
the beaches of St. Joseph State
Park rank as the #1 beaches in
the continental United States In
his yearly rankings. This and
other similar publicity has helped
attribute to an influx of visitors to
the area.
This increase can be mea-
sured in dollars and cents by two,
major indicators-first. Gulf
County building Inspector
Michael Hammond has almost
monthly proclaimed that new

SDrops In


Tuesday Unexpectedly on40th St. Residence


Several times over the past
year. we've described this as a
'building boom" in the county.
Most of that construction is cen-
tered along Guilfs rapidly develop-
ing beaches.. '
The other indicator is the
"bed tax." Money generated from
that tax, which is charged to visi-
tors to the area who rent lodging,
is generated based solely on the
number of visitors to the county.
Those dollar figures are off the
charts compared to what was pro-
jected when the tax was enacted
and estimated to bnng m approx-
imately S125,000 this year.
In summarizing the year
"2000" in Gulf County. it must be
said, "We've come a long way
baby."
It is incredible to think that in
just one short year so many-gains
have been made. That's not to say
we don't have a long way to go
before we're where we need to be,
but the -wheels are definitely
churning.

Well, it got wilder Tuesday morn-

According to an eyewitness of

ently caught a- look at its own

Hunker Down With Kes


by Kesley Colbert


Aunt Jane's Legacy


Where Did



Santa's Beard Go?

This was an especially special Christmas for me and I'm
writing this editorial before Santa has even slid down the
chimney.
Jim Newton touched base with me justabout four weeks
ago and asked if The Star wanted to help sponsor "Christmas
For Kids."
After he explained what the project involved and how the
community needed to raise somewhere around $2,500 to reach
the number of kids targeted-somewhere around 70-I jumped
at the opportunity. All I had to do was come up with a few ads,
write some stories; and do a little planning and brainstorming.
The truth of the matter is I didn't have to do much more
than that Jim Newton did 95%o qofthe organizing for the
project, juit as if each of those 100+ kids who were touched by
this first annual "Christmas For Kids" was one of his very own.
Notice how I said first annual. Plans are already under way
to expand next year's program. A tentative goal of $5,000 has
been set in an effort to help make Christmas a little brighter
for 150 kids.
I can't imagine trying to bring together Christmas, for so
many, but ol' Jim has a great knack for it. "
It no hidden fact that it truly is better to give than receive,
but when you 'see the children's eyes light up with joy as they
will. through this program, that statement takes on a new
meaning.
Each person who contributed to this program helped make
it such an overwhelming success. Words can't measure the
gratitude of those who received, nor equal the magnitude of
your gifts Thanks!l



New & Old Faces


Start New Terms

New Year's falls on lMonday this year. and according to
Florida law on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in
January. new constitutional officers-will take over their pre-
scribed duties. Let us not forget those who were re-elected or
unopposed; they will begin new terms on that date also.
The fact that three of the county's elected officials are retir-
ing this year added a whole new dimension to an already full
local election ballot.
Those three-Gulf County Clerk Benny C. Lister, Tax
Collector Eda Ruth Taylor, and Supervisor of Elections Cora
Sue Robinson-seem to be looking forward to enjoying their
retirement also.
In each of those offices someone from within the office's
respective staff has now been elected by a majority of votes to
take over the reins and run the office.
I guess this says a lot about how the voters feel about the
job that is currently being conducted to reflect confidence in
Athe staff and next in charge to .continue those ways ...
Voters within the county must have also been, very happy
,with the job that Gulf County Sheriff Frank McKeithen and
Property Appraiser Keslev Colbert'were doing based on 'the fact
that neither official drew opposition.
As each of these officials takes on the challenge of manag-
ing these county positions,. while continuing to earn the sup-
port and respect of their constituents, we wish them the best
'of luck...


My youngest son graduated
from college the week before
Christmas. You can't believe the
flurry before, -during, and after
that blessed event! Folks were
arranging schedules to get there, a
post celebration party was planned
at my brother's, it was close
enough to Christmas, for all of
Cathy's 'kin to call their annual
Yuletide meeting ..
The least effected by all the
commotion was .. quite natti-
rally, my youngest son.e .
Jesse looked just pleased to be
there. And a little uncomfortable at
all the attention. I didn't hear him
say a word about college, gradua-
tion, milestones, cum laude, diplo-
mas or the price of. eggs in China.
Jess and that different drummer
have about Worn' out a path .. ..
I couldn't start to tell you' how
proud I was! Jess, in his quiet,
humble, I'd rather do it myself

gave an excellent accounting of
himself.
It's sometimes most difficult
as a parent to realize that yotir
baby boy .... isn't!
He hadn't been for a long time
now.
But you can bet I was doing
some. serious reminiscing as the
i .. ", '


black robed chain made its way
into the auditonum. I had some
special and particular memories of
that young man that no one else
on earth shared!
My mind rolled over several of
those extraordinary moments of
our lives together as the com-
mencement speaker progressed. I
hoped Jesse has' been half as
pleased to have me as a father,a, I
have been in calling him son .
You know you can't pick your
relatives!
And ole Jess ain't never been'
ope to beatyou to.death about how
he feels about "things:"
His moment arrived. The head
of the Religion Department at
Belmont University called out
Jesse Kennedy Colbert and as he,
walked across that stage I thought
of my Aunt Jane Hooper.
Well, to be perfectly honest,
she's actually my wife's great auint
But me and Aunt Jane. don't neti-
ther one admit to that!
I know she would have loved to
have been here. A recent fall and a
broken hip had temporarily con-
fined her to quarters. She was
interested in my boys. And I'm not
talking here about the polite, per-
functory oh-how-are-the-children-
doing? feigned concern either. She
kept up-because she cared.
I don't have any idea how old
she is. But let me tell you some-
thing, there's never been a gap
between' her and any member of
this group It's no wonder I
thought of her on this night. It was
a rare occasion indeed when we


were called together for whatever
reason that she wasn't there to see
we were doing things decently and
in order.
You talk about some unbeliev'-
able meals and family warmth at
her house!
I watched with a father's pnde
as the president of the university
handed Jesse his diploma. And
then I sneaked a peek down, the
row I was sitting on. Jo Blair and
Alan were next to us. They were
beaming' more than I was! I
remember when Jo Blair used to
come over just to pop Jesse's toes..
And she called every day to check
on him. Alan air mailed hini ribs
from that famous restaurant in
Memphis. : ';
Aunt Gay Foley arid Leonard
were on their feet with the rest.
They had loaned Jess the televi-
sion he'd been watching for. the
past three and a.half years.: And
the table he thought was his,
Bobby Brown got Jess tickets
to- the Tennessee-Florida football
games. And then picked him. up
and drove him to Knoxville. The
fortunes, adventures, and tribula-
tions of certain SEC schools are
serious business with the both of
them.
: David Mark and Cfiarlotte had
a graduation of, their own this
" weekend. Yet, they had found time
to make the long trip up from
Tupelo. To be honest, Jess is more
like his Uncle David than he is me.
Both have that quiet, thoughtful.
nature. And both run very deep.
Jess had practically lived at
Leon and Paula's. They had 'seen


more of him in the last few years
than I had. I watched them as
Jesse descended the stage steps
and wondered if they were sad-
dened. happy or relieved!
Something in their demeanor told
me it was more of the former than
the latter.
Uncle Ted and Carolyn drove a
thousand miles for the one hour
ceremony. That will tell you'.-a
whole lot about them-and says a
whole lot about Jesse.
Jessica was the happiest look-
ing person there. And the pride we
all felt seem to radiate from' her
face.
S osh' and Lindsey were leading
the cheers. Josh- and Jess had'
fought and argued and fussed arid
wrestled just like. brothers are sup-
posed to. They also shared some
fun times,. secrets, joys -and love
that, only brothers. can know. -I
thought Josh's buttons would pop
off that old suit of his at any sec-
ond.
I turned, to Mother as Jess
neared his seat. "You've seen a few
of these, haven't you?"
She squeezed my hand .
"Jesse is mighty special. You and
Cathy are blessed." .
I looked at my wife.. Neither of
us spoke. There-was no need. VWe
knew how fortunate we were.
I watched Jesse closely in the

ceremony ended. I -observed, even

On New Year's Day, when the
singing, fireworks and champagne
toasts are over, many of us
become more serious about life.
We take stock and plan new
courses of action to better our
lives. This is best seen in one of
the most popular customs and the
key to the meaning of New Year's,
making resolutions.'
On average each American
makes 1.8 New Year's resolutions.
When the rest of the world is
taken into account, the number of
people making resolutions sky-
rdckets to hundreds of millions.
From New York to Paris to Sydney,
interesting similarities arise as
shown in two very common reso-
lutions: people wanting to be more
attractive by losing weight, and to
be healthier by exercising more
and smoking less. They want to
do things better, become better
people.
New Year's Day is the most
active-minded holiday, because it
"is the one where people evaluate
their lives and plan and resolve to
take action. One dramatic exam-
ple of taking resolutions seriously
is the old European custom of
"What one does on this day one
will do for the rest of the year."
What unites this custom and the
more common type of resolutions
is that on the first day of the year
people take their values more seri-
ously.

Values are not only physical
and external. They also can be
psychological. Many New Year's
resolutions reveal that people
want to better themselves by
improving psychologically. For
example, look at your own resolu-
tions over the years. Haven't they
included such vows as: be more
patient with our children, improve
your self-esteem, be more emo-
tionally open with your wife? Such
resolutions express the moral
ambitiousness of a person want-
ing to improve his self and life.
You can learn statistics, ask for
the promotion, fight your shy-
ness, search for that marriage
partner. Your life is in your own
hands.
But what is the purpose of
making such goals and resolu-
tions? Why bother? Making New
Year's resolutions (and doing so
even after failing last year's)
stresses that people want to be
happy. On New Year's Day many
people accept, often more implic-
ity than explicitly, that happiness
comes from the achievement of
values. That is why you resolve to
be healthier, more, ambitious,
more confident. You want to enjoy
that sense of purpose, accom-
plishment, and pleasure that one
feels when achieving values. It is
happiness that is the motor and
purpose of one's life. It is New
Year's, more than any other day,
that makes the attainment of hap-
piness, more real and possible.
This is the meaning of-New Year's
Day and why it is 'so psychologi-
cally important anid ,significant to
people throughout the world.
If people were to apply, the
value-achievement meaning of.
New Year's Day explicitly and con-
sistently 365 days each year, they
would be happier.
.So every day, fill your cham-

2001 season.
Jenkins, a 6'4" wing player for
the 11-2 Saints, averaged 8.9
points, 3.3 rebounds and 2: 5
assists over the Saints' first 11
games before suffering a broken
right wrist, his hot shooting hand.
in a' win at Coastal, Georgia on
November 29th.
"Travis has been a major con-
tributor to our fast start," head
coach.Monte Towe said. "He does
a lot of different things to help us
win basketball games. He has
done an exceptional job defensive-

Jenkins' offensive numbers
improved dramatically over his
last three games when he aver-
aged 15 points and made nine of
15 three-point attempts while
being named to the Pasco-Her-
nando Thanksgiving All-Tourna-
ment Team. He has scored in dou-
ble figures in five different games
including a high of 18 points
against Indian River Community
College. ,.
Towe said he expects Jenkins
to return to the lineup soon after
the Saints' schedule resumes 'on
December 29th and that he hass'a
very bright future at SFCC and
beyond.
"We expect him back in the
lineup very soon; certainly by the
start of conference play," Tore'
said. "He has a tremendous
upside as a point guard in this
game."
Larry also has put up good
numbers through the first half,
averaging 9.2 points and four
rebounds for the state's number
four ranked team.
"'Kedrick has been a starter
since game one," Towe said. "Heis
a good transition player from the
three spot. We look for big things
from him dunng the second half."
The 6'4" Larry too has scored
in double figures in five games
including a' pair of 16-point
efforts. However, what arguably
could have been his best game,
came in an 80-67 win on the road
over St. Petersburg when the
freshman scored nine points, but
also pulled down 10 rebounds.
"Both of these young men
have done a great job for us,"
Towe said. "We feel confident that
the experience that each of them
has gained during the first half of
our season, will help them take; on
even bigger roles for us through-
out the second half and our tough'
conference schedule." -
