Port Authority Seeking Public Input On Port Study, Jan. 29th


The public has the
opportunity to have direct input
into the plans and development of
future port activity in Gulf
County. .
According to Port Director
Tommy, Pitts, on Monday,
January 29th, between the hours
of 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.; ET, at the
Gulf County Senior Citizens
Center, the Port St. Joe Port
Authority will be holding a public
workshop as part of its Master
Plan Study currently underway.
The study lays the ground-
work for future port development
by evaluating the existing facili-
ties 'and all the intermingled
impacted tentacles (i.e. business-
es, utilities, environmental, prop-
erties, etc.) to develop goals and
objectives for the port.

# objective

is to create jobs

for Gulf. ..
"It is the number one objec-
tive of the Port Authority to create
good paying jobs to support the
families living in Gulf County,"
said Pitts "and to accomplish
that we need the public's sup-
port."
The port Master Plan Study is
a prerequisite for tapping into'
state port grant funds. Those
funds will be necessary as the
Port Authority seeks funds to help
refurbish current port facilities
and develop new ones.

Clay Smallwood._St_- Joe
Timberland president, revealed
that negotiations were underway
between St. Joe Company and the
Port Authority to sell the port
property and warehouse, located
at the end of First Street along St.
Joseph Bay.
This property and dock facili-
ty was used in years past for ship-
ping activity, but has been idle for
the past several years, except for
limited storage use. The site will
require some major refurbishing
to be returned back to a ,usable
state.
Pitts said those negotiations
to purchase the site were ongoing.

ing relationship with .cday

made the contact person for St.

Florida's tobacco program, creat-
ed as ,part of the $13 billion set-'

Wewa Commission
Tackles Billing Problem
Wewahitchka city comimis-
sionbrs decided to work the kinks
out of their Utility billing comput-
er software once and for all during
Monday's meeting.
The board agreed to move for-
ward with plans to search out a
new software program with which
tb replace its existing software.
Board members als6 decided
to install sprinkler systems on
two ball fields at T. L. James
Park-the girls' softball field and
pony league baseball field.
Another item commissioners
decided to go ahead and act upon
now was 'to evaluate purchasing
new Christmas lights for the city.
Many of the city's existing decora-
tions are In need of replacement.

Black's Islando ,Development OK'd

11 Island Lots Could Go On Sale By March 2001


Gulf County commissioners
unanimously approved a recom-
mendation from the Gulf County
Planning and Development
Revrtwikard tbogrant final :.pet
approval .for Black's Island
Development during their regular
meeting Tuesday evening.


, designs increase the efficiency of
the units.
; '"No wastewater output will:
touch the ground," Koran
explained as he carried plans one-
step further to include "watering
beds." The watering beds will be
constructed above ground level
-, ,L "; ,' .


map zoning proposals made by-
FEMA.
Chief Administrator Don
Butler reported to the board that
approximately 50% of the "C"
zone proposed to be taken away
in the 1999 Flood Map Plan has
been gained back alter nearly two


Black's Island rests amidst the pristine waters of St. Joseph Bay, just southeast of Port St. Joe.


According to the plat, owner-
Bill Koran'is seeking to develop 11
lots on the island. Ten of the lots
would be designated as residen-
tial and -one, as commercial.
During an. interview with Koran,
he said plans were intentionally
designed to be a very low impact
development.
"Eleven lots is approximately
25% of the maximum number
allowable by law," Koran said, as
he described plans to develop
Black's Island, but have a mini-
mum impact on its visual appear-
ance. "Purchasers of, island lots
will face very strict covenants and
conditions as they make plans to
build also," he added.
The one commercial site will
likely be earmarked for a bed and
breakfast with a capacity of
approximately eight rooms.
The plans call for wastewater
to be treated by "ATUs", aerobic
treatment units, which are con-
sidered to be 95% efficient as
compared to approximately 65%
with a regular septic tank. The
higher tech units are similar in
appearance to regular septic sys-
tems, but use an aerating system
and other effluent circulating


and local plants and trees will be
planted in the beds to drink up
wastewater that is expelled from
the "ATUs."
Electricity will be provided via
a connecting land line buried four
feet deep and extended from C-30
to the island. The system used to
trench the line under the bay bot-
tom is non-intrusive and, in fact,
should be totally undetectable
within just a few weeks of the
installation, Koran explained.
It will cost approximately
$250,000 to run the power line to
Black's Island. .
Koran said 'the exact selling
price for lots has not been set yet.
Based, on the cost for developing
and the uniqueness of owning a
piece of an island in the middle of
St. Joseph Bay, one should expect
.the lots to bring top dollar when
placed on the market In March.
FEMA Meeting Brings
Compromise
A meeting last week between
representatives of FEMA, Gulf
County, and the Cape San Blas
Property Owners Association pro-
duced some favorable results in
the ongoing battle over new flood


years of negotiations over the
issue.
Commissioner Jerry Barnes,
Butler, Ron Morrow (CSBPOA)
and Sue Marley (CSBPOA) repre-
serited the county during last
week's meeting.
The loss of "C" zone classifica-
tion severely restricts Cape prop-
erty owners' building options
since the area is under Coastal
Barrier Reserve Act (CBRA) desig-
nation. Property under high flood
risk designation faces problems
when the owners try to get con-
struction funding and flood insur-
ance.
Dog Fly Spraying
The board also decided to
send a letter to the governor
requesting that money continue
to be budgeted for the dog fly
spraying program. Word has been
received that consideration is
being given to cutting the pro-
gram from the budget.
Gulf and other areas' summer
tourism draw could be drastically
impacted if dog flies are allowed to
multiply unchecked.
In Other Business
eThe county will request $6.8


million in funding for phase two of
the St. Joe Beach sewer project
currently being studied and engi-
neered. In phase two. if approved.
much of the sewer systemrt Instal-
lation would be funded. When the
project is complete. it is expected
to cost approximately SI10 million
dollars.'
*Following the recommenda-
tion of Solid Waste Director Joe
Danford, the board decided to
move forward with plans to close
the Wetappo Landfill, following
the ,Department of Environmental
Protection's guidelines.
*Agreed.to do limited mainte-
nance on several roads at Rish
Subdivision in Wewahitchka pro-
viding the owner installs culverts
and drainage needs as outlined by
the county's engineers. The City
of Wewahitchka made the
request, which was granted after
discussions concerning county
road requests and subdivision
regulations, and how they impact-
ed roads within a municipality
which do not have the same regu-
lations.
Commissioner Nathan Peters,
Jr. objected to the motion saying.
roads should meet county
'guidelines before the county
agreed to maintain them. The
motion passed 4-1 as other com-
missioriers said the provisions
spelled out were sufficient to pro-
tect the county's interest.

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY Hunker Down With Kes by Kesley Colbert
S ,ITORIAL COLUM NTARY


ILLIE RAMSEY, DITOR Where Have You Gone J. C. Caroline?


Foundations Are Laid For


Economic Development.

Several factors .-outlined in the presentation made by the St. Joe
Company to the Port St. Joe city commissioners last week were extreme-
ly nice and will do much to utilize the business district.
After hearing the plan and digesting the information, I was especially
pleased to hear several of the points that went beyond community devel-
opment and hit to the heart of bringing jobs to Gulf County.
At the top of this list was the announcement that the St. Joe Company
and the Port Authority were in negotiations for the Port Authority to pur-
chase the deep water port and property along St. Joseph Bay at the end
of First Street. St. Joe Timberland: President Clay Smallwood said the
hopes were to reactivate the port. Even though the plans do include a buy-
back clause that option is tied to development of a larger more suitable
port site (possibly on the opposite side of the mill property).
Next was, the announcement of industrial/commercial development
zones located along the Gulf County Canal and Intracoastal Waterway.
This also points directly to creating jobs for Gull countians.
Some of these jobs have already begun to shape up, as is the case
with Gulf County Shipbuilding, and hopefully many more will follow.
Contrary to what many folks might seem to think, any senous devel-.
opment plans for Gulf County will have to include the creation of reward-
ing jobs for residents. .
-I. would like to take full credit for this statement, but it's not totally]
mine. Neal Wade, St. Joe's economic development specialist, said words
very' similar to these as he spoke to Gulf County Chamber of Commerce
members during last year's annual meeting.
Another meeting I sat in on nearly two years ago featured economic
development specialists outlining organizational plans for the economic
development council. One of those specialists, Jim Brantley, stressed
measunng success in economic development by years-not days or
months. Furthermore, he explained that it could be several years before
any measurable success might take place.
We've already begun to see measurable success in what economic
development experts would call a very, very short period o,qf time. As the
paper mill's structures start to tumble at the hands of demolition, crews
Gulf County is seeing new foundations being laid for 'future economic
development and jobs .


You reckon the Super Bowl
has gotten blown out of proportion
over the years! How many more
inside profiles and what did you
have for breakfast stories can we
stand? I think the media is down
to hyping the media now-and
game ddy is still a ways away!
They've even. had promotions
for the halftime show for crying out
loud! Plastic! It all reeks of simu-'
lated naugahyde to me. It's an
orchestrated side show. The game
,gets. lost somewhere between the
blimp and the belly dancers.
Listen, those guys are just
playing for money. And maybe a
Little fleeting glory.
When we, took our heel and
kicked a hole in the ground in
1955 to tee up for the, kick-off
money didn't have nothing to do
with it. We were.playing for family
pride-and the championship of
the known world! It was me and
David Mark against Leon. The
'house and the street were the out-
of-bounds markers! We didn't have
helmets, shoulder pads, or a fair
catch rule. ,
We didn't spend our halftime
doing the watus'i with Mitch Miller
or Bill. Haley and. his Comets
either. We were too busy trying to
,get the bleeding stopped and the
fingers back in place!


We'd never heard of the "shot-
gun" back then. but we'd make
Leon stand back about fi\} yards
and we'd snap it kinda high so me
and Dave could get a head start on
tackling him.
Leon was five years older, and
I kid ) ou not, he wv.as a load to
bring down! His stiff arm was a fist
up side the head. One of us would
go for his throat, the other would
shoot for the knees. If we both
went high he could drag us for ten
or fifteen yards. 'If we both ended
up around his feet he would kick
the daylights out .of us. He didn't
like you biting his kneecap. That
would usually slow him enough for
us to get him to the ground.
I could write a book on team-
work from those early football
days.
When Dave and I were on
offense .we'd try to spread out and
throw long passes. The game plan
said Leon couldn't be two places at
once. I'm not sure about' that a
couple of times... .
He was a great tackler. Whew!
He'd hit you 'in the chest and send
you flying! Or grab you by the arm
and sling-you down.
I've seen Leon throw passes to
himself. He would chunk it high
and far' and then run .under' it
before we could catch him. I'm not
sure that would have been within
the rules--if there, had been any
rules .....
We all picked a pro-player to
be that day. When Leon ,was on
offense he was usually Johnny
Unitas or Y. A. Tittle. On defense
he was' Chuck Bednarik. David
liked Bart Starr and Elroy "Crazy


Legs" Hirsch.
I was .J. C. Caroline. Every
time. Always. It didn't matter if I
%was on offense or defense. He was.
and is still, my all-time fav'onte
football player! I haven't seen any
inside specials this week on that
type of loyalty. Probably too hoaky.
I reckon folks like me and J. C.
have gone the way of the dinosaur.
And I don't know how it works
today with Super Bowls and pre-
tentious Roman numerals and
ten-hundred-thousand dollars a
minute commercials, but football
used to be a humbling sport..
It was about the sixth. grade
when Emily Scarbrough showed
up. 'We ain't letting no girl play!"
The vote took about two seconds.
It took about two seconds more for
Emily to blacken Rick)y Gene's eye.
bloody Marlin Hicks' nose, whap
Buddy Wiggleton up side the head,
and she was about to catch up to
me when we changed the vote!
Listen, we were all embar-
rassed for a while! But let me tell
you, Emily could outrun most of
us, catch the ball as well 'is Ricky.
or' Buddy, and she had a special
knack for calling plays. And she
was always there. I remember
many days when she was chosen
second or third .. .
We were a little disappointed
when we got to high .school and
she couldn't go out for the team.
And did you know they had rules
against kicking, biting, eye goug-
ing, wrestling .
We would play the high school
game. on Friday night and ,then
gather back up on Saturday morn-
ings for a "friendly" little game of'


"touch." Two hands below the belt
was the same as a tackle. The idea
here was you could play all you
wanted to and nobody would get
hurt. 'Course. everybody that ever
ran the ball went fi'ome with back
pockets npped off.
The arguments over whether
you "got both hands" on the run-
ner were numerous and heated.
We settled, the discussions .by
smashing the ball carrier face first
into the turf-didn't- nobody have
to ask if he had been tagged.
We played "tackle football", the
rest of the day. No blimp. No danc-
ing girls. No out-of-bounds. No
Credence Clearwater Revival.
Real football!
I remember .gathering up in
the defensive huddle with. Cloyce
Cunningham. Blood would be
dribbling down from his left eye.
Big knots had swollen up on his
arms. I was afraid of him even
when we were on the same team!
He'd look down at me and growl,
"I'm playing middle linebacker,
both defensive ends. and free safe-
ty. You run over there by the blue
Oldsmobile and I'll kill you if you
let anybody get by!"
You think Cloyce .or J. C.
would have stopped for a T.V.
time-out?
And let me tell you the really
crazy thing about all of this-
Cloyce and JC. are'the exact foot-
ball .players the media, hypes are
'trying so hard to manufacture
these days .
Respectfully,.

George W. Bush Sworn

In As 43rd President
George W. Bush is now officially the 43rd president of the United
States of America. He is the second son of a former president-41 st pres-
ident and father Geprge H. W. Bush-to be elected.
O' course. this is mere insignificant verbage when one considers the ,.,..-.
circumstances surrounding the elections. ....-. "'
Florida, which is governed by President Bush's brother, was thrust to. ... ....
the forefront of this media blitz when It was announced, long before polls
even closed in Florida, that Vice President Al Gore had won Florida and .
its 25 electoral votes. After the polls had closed, they did a flnip-flop and '
said Bush had won, then they did a flip-flop, flip-flop, fiz-fiz and said it
was too close to call.
New terms were invented to descrienbe-pregnant chads, dimpled
chads, and, of course, the elusive dangling chad. The argument over how
to determine clear intent of the voters turned into a court battle which
basically,ended saying a vote is a vote and a dimple is a dimple.
Everyone swore to review and count the pregnant, dimpled, and dan-
gling chads to see who would have won the race if those disputed and con-
.tested votes had they been allowed to be counted.
The Palm Beach Post has renewed those ballots and counted every-
thing from the faintest dimple to chads barely hanging on ballots If
those votes counted, 251 additional votes would have gone to Bush and .
245- more votes1 would have gone to Gore. That's nght. Bush actually T .
picked up six more votes counting the "chads." .I:-'-.
Why didn't CNN post this information live for two or three days where 1T
everyone across the country could hear the news .
But, then again, every court that heard the "'chad" cases (except for
the Florida Supreme Court) said the voters' intent could not be deter-
mined or assumed based on the marks on those ballots. Furthermore. I'm
sure if-Gore had gotten enough of those disputed votes to have changed
the outcome the national media wouldn't have said much about that
either Yeah, right!!!l



Picking Up Some Medical Training I Had Just As Soon Do Without


THE DOCTOR FINALLY .got
hpld of my arm and installed a
pipeline to accommodate dialy-
sis, should, the need' arise; and
I'm afraid they're going to have to
use it quicker than I would like! .
It took yet another doctor to
install the pipeline, which he
described as another jugular
vein. It took a general practition-
er to identify the problem, a spe-
cialist to say, "Yeah, you're
right," and a surgeon to install
the pipeline.
It's almost like a government
job; it takes a different doctor,
with a different' set of initials
after his name to perform every
-task. It seems as if the more fine-
ly trained the doctor is, the less
palatable the treatment he pre-
scribes.
This "Nephrologist" is assign-
ing me to a lifetime on the dialy-
sis machine, three times a week.
"It's not so hard," he says, "Just
come prepared to spend four
hours each of those three days...


r ETAOIN SHRDLU


Written by Weslycv Ramsey


. without fail!"
Well, I'm here to tell. you, it
doesn't sound much like a cake
walk to me!

DR. RICHARDS CUT my
wrist and the inside of my elbow,
then inserted an old ,piece of
automobile vacuum hose under
the skin, joining the two cuts.
One end he attached to an artery
and the other-end to a vein.
gEvery time I,-goto .have dialy-
sis; they'll stick two needles. in
that vacuum hose and go to
pumping. .
They -call that dialysis!
I'm learning more about this


thing called "dialysis.," than I
really want to, know. It doesn't
seem so. bad, when it's happening
to someone else, but it's rough
when the subject is old number
one!
I guess there are worse
things in life which one is called
on to bear, so I should consider
myselflucky that this all I am
called on to bear.
I -could be like my little broth-
,er, Will, who had to endure lung
surgery ,to remove a cancerous
growth last Thursday.
I asked Will if the doctor had
advised him to quit smoking, yet.
He answered, "I didn't have


to ask him, and he didn't have to
tell me. It was just something I
decided to do on my own!"
He's getting along fine.

WE RAMSEY BOYS are
tough nutsl It takes a cancer or
kidneys to fail in order to stop us
and get our attention. The worst
thing Will [Speed] was complain-
ing about wasn't the cancer or
the surgery. The worst thing to
him was the five trips he had to
make to the' Mayo Clinic in
.Jacksonville since the first of
December.
I had a visit from my cousin,
Don, last week and we had a nice
long talk. Don had ,a bout with
cancer a few years ago, but he
sold medical supplies for a living,
so he knew just where to go to
have his taken care of.
We talked about his mother,
Ruth, for a spell. I found out she
is 90 years old and still going
strongly She keeps things lively
down at the nursing home!


IN THE MEANTIME, Willie
seems to be doing alright with
The Star, keeping it up to par and
shining brightly. I don't mind
telling you, it was with some
'trepidation. that I turned things
over to him to operate.
He has, kept his, nose to the
grindstone and seems to be doing
alright with the business.
I didn't know .if I had
impressed upon him sufficiently
or not, that it took 60 to 70 hour
work weeks in order to make the
thing work, but he seems to have
adapted.
But, we all have our prob-
lems,, we just have to figure out
how to work around them

BUT, BACK TO THIS dialysis
thing; when I learned that I was
faced with it, I had to go to the
dialysis center in Panama City to
learn what to expect. That was
the week the patient went
berserk at the center and knifed
one or two of the caregivers.


I knew something about how
he felt, but I decided, then and .
there, that I was going to be alert
to terrorism in the center, once I
was forced to start undergoing
that treatment myself.
I've had people, currently
undergoing, dialysis, tell me that
it isn't so bad. The worse thing!is
putting up with the chunks 10of
time one has to endure to take "t.
I've always waited time to
rest, and now I guess I'll get it
whether I wanted it or not!
Maybe, then, I will also be warm
once again!
Anyhow, I'm now plumbed
and fitted to start the old blood
cleansing routine, in the words of
my doctors, "Should it come ito
that!" I have a feeling it will defi-
nitely, "come to that"!
I'd hate to think I had to go .
through that surgery and sped
a night in the hospital and then
not need it! Come to think of it,
though, I'll be more than glad tto
waste that time!

Confederados
Go To Brazil
Apalachicola Chapter #826
United Daughters of the
Confederacy met at the Corine
Costin Gibson Library on January
18th.
The meeting was called to
order by the president, Jane
Forster; she also led the ritual.
A very interesting program
was given by Linda McCain of
Panama City. McCain discussed
the book, The Confederados-Old
South Immigrants in Brazil by
Cyvrus B. Dawsey. The book was
done by a study at the University
of Alabama in Tuscaloosa in
1995.
After the War Between the
States nothing was working; live
stock was- gone, citizenships of
Southerners was wiped out, they
had no clothes, Sherman had
burned Mississippi, Georgia and
Alabama and the carpet baggers
came out. Some of these were the
reasons why southern people left
the United States and spread to
SBrazil. ',
Many people left the United
States; 'a/large amount of people
went to Mexico but didn't stay.,
The southerners settled in
Amencana. Brazil. There was fer-
tile land for farming and planta-
tions. They planted cotton,
watermelons and had coffee plan-
tations. They had two factories for
making plows. The people that
settled there sull speak with, a
southern accent.
A soldier from our area, John
lKeyes. went to Brazil, but is
buried in the Wewahitchka
:Cemetery.
After the program, the meet-
ing was adjourned.

Sincere Thanks
I would like to thank the EMT
and City Police of Port St. Joe for
their quick response and care that
was given to my wife, Nadine*
Aplin, in her time of sickness.

Port St. Joe Kiwanis members
will mark Kiwanis International's
86th birthday during Kiwanis
Anniversary Week, January 21
through 27, according to Mitch
Burke, president of the Kiwanis
Club of Port St. Joe.
The first Kiwanis Club was
chartered on January 21, 1915, in
Detroit, Michigan. Today, Kiwanis
has grown to number 8,300 clubs
and 300,000 members in 79
countries around the world.
Kiwanis Clubs sponsor commu-
nity serx ice projects and raise
funds to meet local needs.
The Kiwanis club of' Port St.
Joe was chartered over 50 years
ago. Money raised by your local
Kiwanis club help fund many wor-
thy service projects 'in your com-
munity.
Last year, Kiwanis clubs
around the world raised and
spent more than $100 million on
community service activities, with
a special emphasis on meeting the
needs of young children. Kiwanis
members also donated almost' SL\
million volunteer hours to these
service activities. With this money
and volunteer time, Kiwanis con-.
ducted almost 150.000 projects to
meet community needs.
Kiwanis International's con-
tinuing service focus is called.
"Young Children: Priority One."
Under this theme, each Kiwanis
club is encouraged to sponsor sig-
nificant projects that serve the
special needs of young children
from prenatal development to age
five.
Kiwanis clubs around the
world are also conducting the first
Kiwanis Worldwide Service Project
in partnership with the United
Nations Children's Fund. Kiwanis
has pledged to raise $75 million to
assist nations in eliminating
iodine deficiency disorders (IDD),
the leading preventable, cause of
mental retardation in the world
today.
As Kiwanis International
marks its 86th anniversary, the
organization is neanng comple-
tion of its IDD campaign goal.

From the Principal of

Wewahitchka


High School

by Dr. Bill Truby ''


Last week was a unique one
at WHS. Two assemblies and
report cards can make for an
interesting time-both at home.
The first assembly we had
was kind of a kick-off to the
return to school after the long
weekend. In addition to the usual
announcements, students were
challenged to let go of the issues
and the problems that had sur-
faced about town. In short, .con-
flict will not be tolerated in the
school. More details on this topic
were sent home via a newsletter
with report cards.
Our second assembly was
part of -our. monthly TGIF.
Students participated in "Who
Wants to be a Millionaire-Wewa
Style." The show was hosted by
Regis Truby, and contestants
competed foT free class time. It
appeared to be a big hit as stu-
dents and faculty alike really got
into the trivia and the life line
aspects of the format. There is lit-
tle doubt that we willH try this
again!
Report Cards were sent home
with the students on Friday after-.
noon. Obviously, if you didn't get
a report card, please contact the'
office. And if you need to set up a
conference as a result of the
report card, please contact the
office. As mentioned earlier, a
newsletter was also sent home.
The usual method of sending
things home is through the TAP
session during the last few min-
utes of the day. TAP stands for


Along the line, our. Peer
Mediation Training will begin on
January 31st. A handful of stu-
dents who- have requested this
training will spend the entire day
with Dr. Truby receiving instruc-.
tion and developing skills. It is
our hope that these students will
then be used to work with their
peers to resolve personal prob-
lems before they an escalate into
crises..
The boy's basketball team
won one game and lost two last
week. They still, sport the second
best record in the district and will
put that on the line when they
face Port St. Joe again on
Tuesday.
The Junior High boys play
PSJ, this week to end their season.

team winds up its regular season
during the, next few days. They

the successful completion of
Math-A-Thon at Wewahitchka
Elementary ''- School' .-in
Wewahitchka. Math-A-Thon, now
in its 22nd year, 'is an~education-'
ally based fund-raising program
in;which students.obtain spon-
sors for the number of math prob-
lems completed in special
workbooks provided for students,
in grades K-9. The program is
sponsored nationally by Six Flags,
Theme Parks, who 'provide free:
passes 'to their parks for every,
student raisihg $35 or more.
The students who participate
in the program learn to do more
than just math, problems. 'they,
also learn the importance of help-,
ing children who are less fortu-
nate, than .-hemselves. Through
the Math-A-Thon,.they are able to
help, provide a future for St. Jude,,
Children's Research Hospital.
Children with more. than 200
forms of cancer and other cata-i
strophic diseases find hope at St.
Jude.
Since its founding in 1962 by
the late entertainer, Danny
Thomas, the survival rate for most
forms of pediatric cancer have
risen dramatically. In fact, today
more than 70% of all children
with cancer will survive their bout
with the disease. St. Jude' fully
credits this success in treatment
to the generous support of people
around the world, including the
-students at Wewahitchka'
Elementary School..
"We are Very proud of our stu--
dents for working so 'hard on the'
Math-A-Thon," said Ester
Taunton, volunteer coordinator.`
"With their help, St. Jude Hospital
will be able to create new treat-
ments that may one day lead to a
cure for many forms of cancer
that will' benefit the children1 of
our state, our country, and
around the world. I also want to
extend our thanks to the
Wewahitchka community for sup-
porting our students. It takes all
of us to make a difference in the
lives of children with cancer, and
we can all feel proud of our
response.

Substitute Bus

Drivers Needed
Gulf County District Schools
are in need of substitute bus dri-
vers in both the Wewa and Port St.
Joe .areas. Substitute positions
are presently available that could.
eventually lead to employment as

challenging and the hours are
great. Plus there is the satisfac-
tion of transporting a very pre-
cious and valuable cargo-
children.
However, training is neces-
sary. All prospects must- take a
bus driver training course pro-
vided by Gulf District Schools..
The course involves 20 hours' of
class room instruction along with
20 hours out in the field of which
at least eight hours must be spent
in actual driving. Once a driver
completes the course, they will
have a CDL license and also be
licensed by Gulf District 'Schools
to drive buses."
Qualifications include a good
driving record, dependability, and
good character. "
So if you think you would like
to take advantage of this unique
opportunity, please call Carolyn
at transportation at 227-1204 or

WES is proud to announce
thatfifth and. sixth grade teacher-
Ms. Esther Taunton has been
named WES Teacher of the Year.
Ms. Esther and husband. Lamar,
have two adult children, twins
Bert and Rhonda. Rhonda and
her husband Mitchell Gay are the
parents of Colby, 'the -precious
grandson that .stole Ms. Esther's
,heart. You have only to chat with
Ms. Esther a few minutes to real-
ize how important her family is to"
her.
Ms. Esther, radluated from
Bay High School in 1965. Later,
she attended both Gulf Coast
Cominmuiiity College and Troy..
State University earning a
Bachelor of Arts degree in
Education. Ms. Esther began her
career in Franklin County teach-
ing there for eight years, In 19.79,
she transferred to Wewahitchka
Elementary School where she,
taugl-t grades three through six'
and Chapter 1.. Currently, Ms.
Esther teaches sixth grade math-
ematics and two reading courses.
When not occupying her 'free
time playing, '.l th young Colby,
Ms. Esther enjoys relaxing with a
good book, listening to music and
working in the yard..
I Ms. Esther gets:a lot.of enjoy-
ment from teaching. .She says
that being'with her students gives
her pleasure because .,"they
absorb ever thinglike young flow-,.
ers with sunshine and water." Her
goals for the school year .are to.
maintain .and be a, positive role
model for her students and to
challenge them to improve' in all
of their academic endeavors. Ms.
Esthe'r says 'that she 'Wants to be
a teacher than inspires the stu-
dents to learn to be the best that
they can become. Ms. Esther,
spends each day working with
thatgoal in mind. : -
Esther Taunton is a good
teacher, but what qualities make
a good teacher? Certainly, a
teacher has to have mastered
content material. That goes with-
Otit-saying. A good teacher has to
maintain control of the students.
A good teacher builds a relation-
ship' of trust with the students. A
good teacher knows how to moti-
vate and encourage. Yes, Esther
Taunton is a good teacher, but
she is so much more. Ms. Esther
has the ability to build on a
child's strengths to overcome his
or her weaknesses. Ms., Esther
has that perfect blend of firmness
and nurturing. But perhaps most
remarkably, Ms. Esther has the
ability to love the individual child,
the poor child who wears the
same clothes everyday, the


stores.
Several of our stUdents were
privileged to go to, the Florida
State University basketball game
with the SWAT group this last
weekend. Faith Christian is glad
to be a part of this organization
and we appreciate and thank our
teacher, Mrs. Karen Odom and
the Gulf County coordinator, Mrs.
Sabrina Burke for their part in
encouraging our students to
refrain.from the use of any tobac-
co products. We also thank those
:who accompanied the group as,
chaperones, Mrs. Cara Johnson
and Mr. Rusty Burch. *
When you are driving by Faith
Christian School please notice the
-new Christian flag flying on our,
flagpole. We are thankful for this
gift from Mr. and Mrs. Rustyr
Burch, Trevor, and Tiffany.
-Many of our students partici-
pate in the "Upward Basketball"
program and we appreciate the
Long Avenue Church for sponsor-
ing it. We know that a program of
this magnitude takes much time,
patience and love from its mem-
bers. We are thankful for their
generosity, and for their efforts to
make a difference in young lives
in our community'.


neglected child who comes to
school dirty, the scatterbrained,
Shield who never has a pencil, the
bossy child who wants to rule the
world. Ms. Esther has the ability
to love the child who is difficult
for most to love.
In her 29 years of teaching,
Ms. Esther has taught many
things to many people. She has
taught, dozeils of sLxth graders .to
divide fractions. She has taught
many struggling readers to
decode words. She has taught lots
of youngsters to work and play
together cooperatively. And she
has taught me that teaching is a
labor of love; a work of heart.
Thanks, Ms. Esther. We love,
you..

Valentine Banquet at New Life'I


A fellow was asked, "Do you
have any dependents?" "No, sit,"
he answered. "But you have a
wife," said the officer. "Yeah," he
admitted, "but she ain't depend-
able."
Are you?
There are many whom God
can count, but not many whom
He can count on.
God is looking for people He,
can count on who'll not criticize
circumstances but will change
conditions, who'll not build barri-
ers but will remove roadblocks,
who'll not produce excuses but
will perform exploits, who'll not
give up but will go on.
When God finds such a person'
He'll do great things for him, in
him and through him..
Will you be that person?

For the Prayers
To my many beloved' -friends
and chnstian farmuly. for we all are-
familv. On November 19th, 2000
my daughter Sara Hayden had a
car accident, in Goodwater.
Alabama. From the time of the
accident until now, God has her
in his hands, loving her and pro-
tecting her. I thank everyone for
praying for .her.
I believe that the prayers are
what saved her life. God heard
and answered. 'It has not been
easy these past eight weeks. There
has been times when we were as
low as you can get. Every time we
got that low, God sent someone' to
remind us that we were not for-
gotten, a pastor or prayer warriors
for example, to lift us up.
God allowed this' to happen
for me to realize that He is God
and there is nothing that He can.
not do.
The doctors had given up,
saying she would never get better.
I prayed to God, begging for a mir-
acle. I had no sooner finished
praying, when Sara began to
respond. That was God's miracle,
not man's only. He is responsible,
and when Sara is healed, it will be
for His glory.
We are so very blessed to have
a God who loves us, and will never
forsake us. We have 'become fam-
ily here at the hospital, and Port
St. Joe is truly a wonderful place.
Your prayers, support and love
have meant so much to me and
my family. I can never say thank
you enough. I will forever be
grateful for your prayers and sup-
port.
Tomorrow Sara will be going
to Brain Rehab in Spain Rehab, a

Over 55? Learn How to Drive Safer


, Join the AARP 55 Alive and
become a smarter, more alert, and
safer driver: Help build a better
driving safety record for all senior
drivers. The Mexico Beach AARP
Chapter #4325, is sponsoring an
"All new Edition 5" AARP 55 Alive,
Driver Safety Program. The pro-
gram is a driver improvement
course for all drivers 50 years of
age and older. Every driver age 50
and over, really should take this
course to make the roadways
safer for everyone. There are no
examinations, no driving tests
and no chance of losing your
license, and it can get you a dis-
count of your auto insurance.

Thanks

From Page 3B
part ol the UAB in Birmingham. It
is stated to be the best in the
country. We feel that getting Sara
accepted is a miracle and we are
expecting another. I believe that
God is going to heal Sara. After all
the blind man did not ask Jesus
"Can you heal me," he said
"Master heal me," and because of
his faith, Jesus healed him.
I believe with all my heart that
Sara is going to be healed. I just
have to be patient. She is already
a miracle, plain and simple.
Please continue to pray for
her. Pray for a speedy and com-
plete recovery, that she may come
home to all. the people who love
her. Remember our God is an
awesome God, and he still per-
forms miracles everyday! He has
humbled us and given us a real
empathy, for those in trouble. He
has given us a testimony to pass
on to them.
Thank you and God bless.
The Sara Hayden Family


This highly effective, driver's
refresher course, approved and
encouraged by the state and fed-
eral governments, will be held at
the Mexico Beach Civic Center,
behind Parker Realty on Monday
and Tuesday, February 5th and
6th, from 9:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m.,
CT. To cover some to the expenses
a fee of $10 per person, preferably
in the form of a check made out to
AARP, will be collected.
The purpose of AARP 55 Alive,
Driver Safety Program is to help
senior drivers become.more aware
of, and to cope, with hazards on
the road, age-related physical
changes and hazardous weather
driving conditions. It covers new


laws, highway signs and road
markings, and the safety aspect of
driving. The effects of alcohol and
the danger of alcohol plus medica-
tions will be discussed. Also dis-
cussed will be ways to avoid the
criminal while getting into, out of,
and while driving a car. These are
just a few of the topics covered,
plus much, much more.
Classes will' be presented in
two four-hour sessions over a
two-day period. It will be'
instructed by Dick McLaughlin, a,
trained AARP volunteer. Upon"
completion of the course, a certifi-
cate will be issued to each partic-
ipant to give or send to your
insurance company for a dis-


count. These certificates are good
for three years, then the course
must be taken again.
Again, "Who needs this
course?" According to all govern-
ment and insurance, company
reports, every driver age 50 and
over needs to re-evaluate their
abilities on the road. Please don't
be one of those people who believe
there is nothing more to learn
because you have been driving for
40, 50, or 60 years. Millions of
people that have taken this course
would prove you wrong. Make
your reservation now since space
is limited. Call Ruth McLaughlin
(850) 648-3067. Walk ins wel-
come, (if the class is not filled).

ADJOURNMENT: There being no fur-
ther business, the meeting adjourned at 8:53
a.m.
DECEMBER 28, 2000
The Gulf County School Board met in
special session on December 28, 2000, at
8:00 a.m., ET, in the Gulf County School
Board Administrative Offices. The following
members were present: Mary Pridgeon,
Charlotte Pierce. Billy Quinn, Oscar Redd,
and Linda Wood. The Superintendent and
Board Attorney were also present.
Chairman Pridgeon presided,.
PERSONNEL MATTERS: The Board
met to consider the Superintendent's recom-
mendation for the principal position at Port'
St. Joe Elementary School. The Board
recessed at 8:03 a.m. for Board members to '
examine supporting documentation for the
Superintendent's recommendation. The
Board reconvened at 8:30 a.m. for discus-
sion on the recommendation. A second
recess commenced at 8:45 a.m. for a more
in-depth' study'by Board members of the
supporting documentation. The Board i
*reconvened at 9:15 a.m. On motion by Mrs.
Pierce, second by Mrs. Wood, the Board
approved the Superintendent's recommen- ,
dation of Tim Wilder to fill the principal's
position at Port St. Joe Elementary School.
Pierce, Quinn. Redd, and Wood voted YEA.
Pridgeon voted NAY and requested the fol-
lowing statement to be included in the min-
utes for the record:
"I am voting NO because the recom-
mendation did not have any experience at
the elementary level and I think that is
important. I understand Mr. Wilder is doing
a very good job as assistant principal and the
pay grades are .the same for the first eight
years so there tould be no difference there.
Plus, that'would mean we will have two
administrators in new positions, training in
new positions when it could be just one. I
believe an administrator should be selected
on the basis of qualifications, pertinent expe-
rience in the area. and what's best for the
system, and not on politics."
The meeting adjourned at 9:43 a.m.
