When viewing the digital

quickly see the hub of future
development revolves around the

The area located behind Port

How all of this flows with the

major concern. .

First, let me say we have several-plans to further improve The Star ,

maintain and expand our position as a media of choice.
Advertisers want eyeballs looking at their ads. The Star currently .
has a circulation of nearly 5,000 papers per week distributed.
Statistics indicate that the average paper is read by three members of
the household where it's distributed. If that is the case, then nearly
15,000 readers per week view the paper.

The lawsuit, filed in Leon
County Circuit Court, asks the
court to determine the fair market
value of the 60-year-old state
lease that gives Coastal Petroleum
the exclusive right to, drill for oil
and gas in state waters in the gulf.
"The state wants it both,
ways," said Coastal Petroleum
President Philip Ware. 'The state
is refusing to allow Coastal
Petroleum to exercise its legal
right to explore for oil and gas
under the leases' the state sold to
us. At the same time, the state is
refusing to compensate us for tak-
ing away our property rights."
Ware noted that the intent of
the lawsuit is only to seek com-
pensation for the state's taking of
its property rights, not to force the
state to allow Coastal Petroleum
to drill for oil and gas. Although
Coastal Petroleum has consis-
tently sought a state permit to
drill on the lease, the company
also recognizes that Florida public

The Blue Dog Coalition was
established in 1994 as a policy-ori-
ented group which offers moderate
and conservative Democrats a col-
lective, common sense voice within
the Congress. Most agree, that,
since then, we have been success-
ful in our efforts to inject a mrioder-
atei viewpoint into the House
Democratic Caucus. I
Despite our southern roots, the
group's membership spans the
United States consisting of -32
members that hail from 18 states.
This diverse group of men and
women, work together to promote
legislation that is fiscally prudent
and within ,the framework of a bal-
Taking into account the narrow
margins in the House of
Representatives for the 107th
Congress. there is no doubt the
Blue Dog Coalition will play a cru-
cial role in the passage of key legis-
The coalition's two other co-
chairs and I have already met with
Speaker Hastert and Minority
Leader Cephardt in an attempt to
formulate a framework for the par-
! ties to work during the upcoming
session. The coalition recognizes
the need for both parties to be pre-
sent and active at the beginning
and throughout the legislative
process. In my experience. good
ideas come from both sides of the
aisle and everyone should be given
the opporturuty to provide substan-
tive input for legislative proposals.
The Blue Dogs feel that the
slim margins separating control ofr
both the Hou e and Senate reflect
the true desire of the American peo-
ple to govern from the "radical"
middle. The goal of the Blue Dog
Coalition is to bridge the gap
,between ideological 'extremes and
return common sense to Congress.
Many of our policy proposals have
been praised as fair. responsible,
and positive additions to a congres-,
sional environment too often
marked as partisan and antagonis-
The group's membership has
continued to grow with each new
Congress. The 107th Congress will
host the largest number of Blue
Dogs since our creation. The elec-
tions of 2000 gave the Blue Dogs
five additional members. With two
retirements and a loss in one of the
nation's tightest races, the coalition
experienced a net gain of two seats.
With the inclusion of the new Blue
each followed with 12 points.

Dog members, the Democratic
party was able to gain one addition-
al seat in the House. This further
underscores my earlier point that
the American populace is mandat-
ing governance from the middle.
Our, coalition's: ability to ',pro-
mote bipartisan cooperation within
Congress is clearly one of our most
valuable characteristics. In, fact,
last year's coalition budget propos-
al was the only such plan to receive
significant support from both
Republicans and Democrats. In
addition, it won the endorsement of
multiple newspaper and magazine
editorials, as well as the nonparti-
san Concord Coalitlon.
As one of our favorite endorse-
ments tells, the Blue Dogs have
proven that "common sense, con-
senrvative economics, and compas-
sion aren't necessanly mutually
exclusive." The Blue Dog initiative,
which ultimately failed, received
138 Democratic votes and 33
Republican votes, more bipartisan .
support than any other budget pro-
In the next Congress. the Blue
Dogs have .set forth an agenda
which includes 10 task forces, as
far ranging as healthcare to energy,
and campaign finance to trans-
portation. It is our goal to workwith
our colleagues on both sides of the
aisle, to overcome partisan differ-'
ences, and put forth bills that both
political parties can agree on.
The Blue Dogs will assume the
role of consensus builders within
the 107th Congress.' We will
attempt to bring all of these inter-
ests to ofe. table and broker a final,
product that carefully reflects the
interests of both parties.
Too often during the 106th
Congress we saw policy that was
crafted to provide political coverage
in an election year. The political
posturing must come to an end and
I challenge, the leaders of the
Republican majonty and President-
elect Bush to work with the
Democrats to find areas that we
can all agree upon and accomplish
more than just a partisan stale-
mate. There is an old saying in
North Florida that we use to
describe this frustrating state of
gridlock, "that dog won't hunt."
If my colleagues are sincere in
their pledge to work with one
another they will join the Blue Dogs
in pursuit of legislation that is a
victory for both sides, and more
importantly, the Arerican people.

A Few Words About
Dental Insurance -
Our office likes dental insurance,
we feel It helps our patients get the
quality dental care they deserve at an
affordable fee. We will file your claims,
monitor their progress, follow up with
phone calls and letters if necessary, in
short do everything possible to make
sure that your insurance company
upholds its obligation to you, our
patient Having said that, it is important
to remember that the insurance indus-
try is a big business and Their primary
goal is to make a profit, not to take care
of your dental needs. Profit is increased
by bringing In more money (premiums).
and paying out less money (benefits)
Employers are under increasing press '-
sure to cul costs, and unfortunately,'
purchasing a cheaper, lower quality
dental insurance plan is often the first
thing to happen There is nothing per-
sonal here, it is simply a business fact
that your insurance company may'
attempt to pay as lile tenefts as pois-
sible, or recommend iat na cheaper
lower quality alternative should have
Our office is committed to provid-
ing you with the highest quality dental
treatment available today at a very rea-
sonable lee We are also committed to
providing you, our patient, with the best
service available as well, including fil-
ing and following up on any insurance
claims We want you to know up front
that our office is committed to your opti-
mal dental health, not the insurance
companies' bottom line

Well it's that time of year-
'again. The holidays are over. No
:more hanging out at night and
;sleeping late in the morning. Now
'is the time to kick back in gear
'and start studying again. We are
-starting the last semester of the
:year and for the seniors, the last
semester of our lives. We will all
'miss Port St. Joe High when the
'time comes to leave.
Our vice-principal, Mr. Wilder,
-has resigned'in order to fill a posi-
tion as principal of St., Joe
Elementary. We all hate to see him
go, but wish him the best in his
.newv job. Also, our hearts go out to,
-Mrs. Patterson and her family in
:the recent loss of her mother. She
is loved among us students and we
:are all glad to have her back.
As the year progresses, our
Athletes keep climbing their way to
the top.* Congratulations to the
Tiger Sharks for their victory over
Apalachicola Saturday night. Great
job guys! The Sharks are sched-
uled to host Chattahoochee on
Friday at 8:00. Come out and sup-
port our team. Our Lady Sharks
'are having a great season as well.
They had a stunning 49-44 victory
over Mosley on Thursday, Their
next game is scheduled for
January 18 at Apalachicola and on
January 19th at Greensboro.
Game times are 6:30 on the 18th
and 5:00 on the 19th. Good Luck
In this new ,semester, we have
much to look forward to. We will all
have to get used to our new class-
es and new teachers. We can no
longer look forward to Christmas
holidays, so now we set our sights
on spring break. So until then, we
will all study hard and try as hard
as possible to stay out of trouble.

Cold Damaged Pltant 'Care I OU; ppng..
o Cal The Star at 227-1278
Sometimes our sunshine
state isn't so: sunny or warm! In
Spite of a reputation for tropical
breezes,. Florida does have its
moments of frigid temperature
perhaps not cold enough to both-
Ser winter visitors. but certainly
':below the safety range for tender
plants. After, each frost, everyone
usually gets questions concerning
what to do about freeze damage.
While the colder locations of
our nation experience heavy
snows during this season, of the
year, one seldom sees a blanket of
snow covering Florida landscapes.
Nevertheless. our temperatures
4 often drop low enough to injure.
and eten kill. ornamentals and
fruit trees. So. frost damage 'is a
real concern throughout the win-
ter months. Today. I'll talk about
the kind of cold inlurv that most
often occurs to popular landscape
specimens. I'll offer some sugges-
tions on what to do to help plants
recover from Jack Frost's icy
attacks. My information, was pro-
vided by Extension Urban Horti-:
culture Specialist Dr. Robert
Black from the University pf Flori-
da's Institute of Food and Agricul-
: When landscape plants
freeze, -the first impulse of most
gardeners is to get out the prun-
Sing shears and cut away dead and'
I dinmg leaves and branches. But,
this: really isn't a good idea. As a
I rule. you can't tell how much
damage has been done until
plants start new growth in the
spring. So, if you prune immedi-
ately after a freeze, you may cut
away live wood that doesn't have
to be lost. Also, leaves and
branches which have been killed
.can help protect the rest of a
, plant against further cold injury
and any other needed protection,
to guard what's left of youth plants
against the next cold snap.
Severe cold may kill some of
your tender landscape and patio
ornamental all the way down to
the soil line. But, such specimens
things like rubber plants, philo-
dendrons. and poinsettias could
surpnse you by sending up new
shoots in the spring. So, don't
give up on them too soon. Allow
enough time for them to revive
alter w arm weather returns.
Both flower buds and stems
of azaleas often suffer cold dam-
age. Bud injury w\ill be evident if
your plants produce few, or. no
flowers at blooming time.- Stem
damage will show up later in the
spring and early summer., when
some branches die. That will be.
the time to prune. Just cut out
dead branches, as you find them.'
always pruning back to live wood.
Low temperatures often cause
bud injury ,and leaf burn on
camellias. Damaged buds will
either drop from the plants, or
open only partway, revealing
btown. center. Leaf damage on
.damellias usually isn't too much
of a problem. In most cases, as
new leaves come out in the
spring, the old, frost-burned
leaves will just drop off the plants.
Whatever you do, even if your
landscape ornamental have
already suffered some cold injury,
do not relax your guard. More
frigid weather may be on the way.
So, be prepared to keep your
)) prized not to encourage any new
growth, until all frost danger has
