CofC Executive

Director Scholz

Resigns Post

Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director
Diane Scholz submirutted her resig-
nation effective February 15th in
correspondence to the chamber's
board of directors last Thursday.
In her letter to the board she
states-
"1 want to thank the Board of
Directors, past and present, for
being so supportive through the
past two years eight months. It
has been an honor to work for you
and with you toward the better-
ment of .Gulf Count,. I have
- thanked God manybtimes for'easgh
of you, and feel that only through
God's help have we been ablr to
work through some of the difficul-
ties of the community."
During a conversation with
Scholz. she added. "My number is
in the book. I will continue to,
do all I can for Gulf County. but it
w.il just be on a voluntary basis."
"Personally, I think this is
going to be a tremendous loss to
the chamber." said Vice President
Daid Warriner. "She (Diane
Scholz) has put her heart and
soul into her position with the
chamber." .
NVarriner discussed the chal-
lenges Scholz has been faced with
and accomplishments she has'
been able to achieve. "I believe she
truly, truly had faith in the good
people of Gulf County and she
worked hard to try to make good
things happen, and I hope she is
blessed in her future endeavors."
7 The board will likely begin the
process of searching for a new
executive director during its next
regular meeting.

Work Starting
On Two Park
Projects for PSJ
Port St. Joe city commission-
ers have agreed to move forward
with over $300,000 of improve-
ments to Frank Pate. Jr. Park and
Forrest Park South.
Most of the work at Frank
Pate, Jr. Park is aimed at improv-
ing the boat launch, channel, and
docking facilities. Efforts are
underway to have the work com-
pleted before the summer rush,
begins.
Bids, were opened at the
board's 'last regular meeting, but
they all exceeded the grant funds
available to do the project.' The
board agreed to accept the boat
ramp and dredging portion of the
lowest bid and will seek alterna-
tive funding from grant agencies
and private entities to finish the
inland portion of the project.
The board accepted the low
bid of $119,819.08 to redo the
boat ramp, dredge the channel,
eand construct boat mooring
docks.
Remaining portions of the
grant include sidewalks, addition-
al parking, playground equip-
ment, a community events sign,
and park benches.

Port Strategies Hold Dee Promise


Local Port at Geographic Center of Gulf Coast Shipping


Judging by the number of
folks who participated in
Monday's public workshop on the
Port St. Joe Port Authority's
Master Plan and Dredging
Evaluation Study, there is much
interest in the port and the possi-
ble jobs that can be created
through its development.
A steady flow of businessmen,
residents, local government offi-
cials, and other interested parties
viewed an array of study models


and development scenarios that
could be included in future port
plans.
"The Port Authority members
and I were very encouraged by the
comments we received from those
participating in the workshop,"
said Port Director Tommy Pitts.
One of the more Interesting
market assessment plots dis-,
played principal ports along the
Gulf Coast and the fact that Gulf
County Is poised in a geographical


Judge Witten to Visitors review some of the
several scenarios port planners
Open Office In had on display at the master
Wewa on Fridays plan public workshop Monday.
Wewa on Fridays*


Gulf County Judge Fred N.
Witten is planning to open a
judge's office extension at the old
Gulf County Courthouse in
Wewahitchka. beginning Friday,
February 9th.
Judge Witten said he will
open. .he office one day per week
on Fndays beginning at 9:00 a.m.
on February 9th. Persons wishing
to schedule appointments in
advance to -see the judge should
contact the courthouse office at
227-1416.


The office is located in the for-.
mer judge's chambers on the sec-
'ond floor of the old courthouse.
Judge Witten said that former
Gulf County Judge Robert 'M.
"Bob" Moore had planned to open
the office and much of the work
had been done prior to his sudden
death.
"This will make the county
court more convenient to all citi-
zens of 'Gulf County," Judge
Witten said, as he discussed the
need for expanding court services.
He plans to initially hear
summary claims and small claims
cases on the Fridays he is sched-
uled to man the office in
Wewahitchka. "Eventually, jury
trials could be included in the
scheduling," Judge Witten said.
Some residents in the north-
ern end' of the county currently
have to travel between 30 to 45
minutes to receive service at the
Gulf County Courthouse. in Port
'St. Joe. Judge Witten said open-
ing of the office in Wewahitchka
on Friday's will aid those resi-
dents, especially the ones who are
hardshipped for various reasons
because of the distance.
He also extended thanks to
the Gulf County Board of
Commissioners and 'Commis-
sioner Billy Traylor for helping.
ready the offices for use.
A schedule outlining the
Friday Judge Witten will be at
the satellite office will be posted
on the door of the judge's office in'
Wewahitchka.


center to service import and
export sites along the eastern
seaboard.
Major markets outlined in the
study as currently import/export
possibilities include coal from
South America, rolling stock
(vehicles) from Mexico, overflow
container cargo from area ports,
iron ore imports from Brazil, and
grain exports from the midwest.,
Local dentist Bob King
recalled some of the plans and
ideas discussed for port develop-
ment in the past and commented,
"It's good to see some of these
ideas getting closer to being, a
reality."
The study area includes the
area along St. Joseph Bay from
the Port St. Joe Marina to the
George G. Tapper Bridge and up
the Gulf County Canal. The plan-
ning area extends landward
throughout the mill property and
along both sides of the Industi-al
Road, north of Premier Industries.
Pitts was quoted In last
week's edition of The Star stating.
"It is the number one objective of
the Port Authority to create good
paying jobs to support the fami-
lies living in Gulf County."
The port master plan must be
? completed before much of that
goal can be addressed. In order to
tap into state grant funds, the


study is required, and in order to
build the infrastructure required
to restart the port, those state
funds are a must.
The St. Joe Company and the
Port Authority are nearing final,-


terms for the sale of the existing
warehouse and docks located at
the end of First Street and along
St. Joseph Bay.

look like if port strategists are successful.


New Mexico Beach Dredge



Christened On Wednesday


Since 1984 the City of Mexico
Beach has maintained passage to
and from the:Gulf of Mexico via
the Mexico Beach Municipal
Canal: with a hand-me down
dredge donated to the City by
MacDill AFB. The dredge, built in
1955. served its earlier tour on
Tampa Bay. With recent rising
costs of maintaining the antique
dredge. the City of Mexico Beach
and the Mexico Beach CDC
decided that it was time to retire
Old Big Red.
Since 1998., the Mexico Beach
CDC has, assisted the City of
Mexico Beach, through bed tax
revenues, in maintaining the
dredge and in whole keeping the
Mexico Beach Municipal Canal
open for the many residents and
visitors that utilize its access to
the Gulf of Mexico. In .late
September 2000, discussions,
began between the CDC and City
regarding the purchase of .a new
dredge. In the months that fol-
lowed a tentative agreement was
reached whichh paved the way for
the, CDC to reimburse the City
over a fifteen-year period for the
purchase of the new equipment.
The city went out for bids' and
Innovative Materials Systems, Inc.
was chosen as the company
which could best fulfill the canal's
dredging needs. On January 24,
the new dredge was delivered to
Mexico Beach.
In the coming weeks, the City
of Mexico Beach and the Mexico
Beach CDC will revamp current
contracts regarding canal dredg-
ing maintenance to allow for
expenditures for capital equip-
ment as well as dredge mainte-

The old Mexico Beach dredge has deteriorated to the point of being undependable. The newly
purchased dredge will not only rectify that problem, but will dredge much more efficiently.


nance. Under the terms of their
earlier tentative agreement, the
CDC will reimburse the City on a
monthly basis for payments made
to the lender, the Gulf Breeze
Loan. The overall cost for the new
dredge is $-198,980, which
amounts to annual expenditures
from the CDC of $13,265. In addi-
tion, the CDC has agreed to
escrow $5,000 per year for a full
maintenance schedule to take


This old relic pales in comparison as it seemingly waits to be
replaced with the new $198,980 dredge.


place every two years, bringing
annual estimated bed tax expen-
ditures in the amount of $18,265.
On. Wednesday, January 31,
at 3:00 PM CST, following 'two
trips to Cape Coral, (one of which
was a training session) by mem-
bers of the'City Council, City staff
and the CDC, the new Mexico
Beach dredge was christened at
Canal Park in Mexico Beach.
"This marks a new beginning
for the Mexico Beach Municipal
Canal," said, Councilperson David
Miller, who has played an integral
part in the purchase process. 'We
have had a number of problems in
maintaining access via the canal
over the past few years as a result
of problems with the old dredge."
"The new dredge should eliminate
these problems," Miller added.
Mayor Kathy Kingsland
stated, "This is the first step in
maintaining canal access for our
residents and visitors. I believe
there is more that we can do to
improve the situation of sand
infiltration to the mouth of the
canal and we will be exploring
every possibility over the course of
the next year," she added.
The canal continues to be one
of Mexico Beach's greatest assets


both for residents and visitors.
The new dredge gives greater
assurances that it can be utilized
each and every day.

RESPECT... Years to


Earn, Minutes to Lose

He who is without sin should cast the first stone.
It's so easy sometimes to get caught up in politics, party differences,
and basic philosophical beliefs of which we make light, or find some
degree of satisfaction in others' misfortune.
I must confess to being guilty of just such on more than one occasion,
but it's just so darn hard to resist when some people make it so easy.
Take President Clinton, for example-for eight years he more than
earned that nickname "Slick Willie." He had a way of walking, talking, or
otherwise getting himself into more messes over his eight years as presi-
dent. Any normal, ordinary man would probably still be in jail-or worse.
He committed acts of immorality, was unfaithful, proved to be
untrustworthy, was involved.in shady financial deals, distorted the truth
(lied), even made up new definitions for words to make big lies look like
little bitty half-truths. But,- through it all he remained ourpresident and
even managed, to get re-elected.
How did he do that??? First off, my wife would have done things
to me that would have made Lorena Bobbit-look like a saint if I had done
some of the things ol' "Slick- Willie" did. Next, I would have found out
where that island was located that Tom Hanks was "Cast Away" on so I
wouldn't have to show my face in public ever again.
Somehow, Bill and Hillary weathered that storm though, and now it
has been made clear to me how. He had help from an- expert-Jesse
Jackson.
I can't say Jesse and I have always seen eye-to-eye. In fact, while men-
tally searching over a list of black role models whom I would wish for my
children or grandchildren to emulate. I can think of several local black
men who would come to mind long, long before Jesse Jackson.
Being a Baptist preacher, and one of if not the most prominent black
leaders in the world, the Reverend Jesse Jackson lives in jus as big a glass
house as the former president does. As many stones as Rev. Jackson has
thrown at others' glass homes, it surely should be no surprise to him that
the sky is full of stones coming his way after the news that he has fathered
a child with one of his understudies in an extramarital affair..
Red and yellow, black and white, we've got to expect more out of our
leaders. On a local level, on a state level, and on a national level, there
should be something special about the character and integnty of the peo-
ple who lead us. For us to accept otherwise is to send a message to our
children or friends, other Americans, and other countries, that we have
none of those special qualities.
I wish nothing but the: best for former President Clinton and Rev.
Jackson. and I truly hope that they are able to overcome the adversities
these acts have caused in their lives But, it will take years for either
of them to ever earn back the RESPECT they've lost.


Were Moving .
On October 29,. 1937, the first issue,of The Starwas:published outof
this location at 306 \\illiams Avenue. In talking-with Daddy, he explaij.d
that the building was built newt for that purpose. and Williams Avenue
was not even a street at that time.
A trail led to the front door of the office which could be reached by
dialing telephone number 51. I'm not really much into signs, but just as
a matter of interest I was born in October, 1951.
William S. Smith was the editor and' publisher of the paper which
Wesley Ramsey (Daddy) purchased (I believe) in 1952. Since that time we
have expanded to 304. 306, and 308 Williams Avenue as the business has
grown in the newspaper. commercial printing, and office supply markets.
We're full to the brim and are in need of more space, especially in our
main office. to properly service our valued customers. So. when' the Heilig-
Meyers building became vacant a few months ago, I inquired as to its,
availability for purchase, and the Tormer owner (Emily Roche) and I
reached an agreement for purchase.
Good Lord willing, we'll-be making a few structural alterations, then
mo-ing into new quarters at'209 Ieid Avenue late in March or'earlyiApril. -.
We feel that, being located, on Reid Ax en ue will offer greater conve-
nience for our .customers, along with the added space gained, We'll make
every effort to make this transition as painless as. possible for those cus-
tomers. .. .
Anyone wishing to help us move should contact me at The Star so I
can place your name on my list before it's full. More.importantly, anyone:
interested .in renting, leasing, buying, or otherwise helping me unload our".
existing buildings on Williams Avenue could sure help us offset some pay-
ments.


I had to drive to Panama City
yesterday. I almost got killed ten
times. I've never seen, so much
traffic! And everybody was in a
hurry! At one point I was being
passed on one side by a great-
grandmother in a Volkswagen and
on the other side by a pre-teenage
girl in a Honda Accord. Or maybe
she was driving a Toyota Corolla.
Or a Mazda Miata. Or an Acura
Integra.
They're ,all the same car I
think.
I can pick out a 1957 Pontiac
Chieftain making a right turn'
three blocks in front of me by
catching a fleeting glimpse of the
back fin and tail lights. On any-
thing manufactured in the last
twenty years, I've got to get close
enough .-to read the nameplate on
the back.
I'm not too big on driving, or
on automobiles these days.
Oh, there was a time ....


Hunker Down With Kes


by Kesley Colbert


Cars I Have Known


My first car was a 1946
Farmall tractor. I would wheel that
thine across the field with my
shoulders reared back and my
head held high. I would nod and
smile at the make believe people
lining my street." I would slow
enough to let a couple ol pretty
girls hop in the back seat. They
naturally ooed and awed over
being in a convertible. And at my
stellar driving ability.
I was twelve at the time. And it
took only a smidgen of imagination
to visualize that old faded out
orange colored Farmall as' a fire
engine red Corvette.
Pretty soon I graduated to the
green '51 Chevy sitting in our dri-
veway. Man, I'd get both hands on
that giant steering wheel and
throw my shoulders back. I'd
cruise to town. Ride down to
Memphis. Take a trip out to
Colorado. Went to Canada once..

Life would have been perfect-
if.I had just been big enough to get
my elbow laid out the window like
James Dean. And, of course, the
key would have helped! Leon rolled
that car over about three times
tumbling down an embankment
before I, actually got to take my
turn.


But I could have .
Soimeu here along in here Leon
managed to get enough money
together to buy a 1957 Ford con-
%ertible. It was a beautiful car. Of
course, he was seventeen or eigh-
teen at the lie-I was thirteen .
. and the younger brother. Let me
tell you, that's a nowhere combi-
nation! He'd ride me down to the
crossroads every once in a while if
Jackie and Nicky Joe couldn't go-.
. and there weren't any giils
around.
I was fifteen when Diane
Stoner took that curve out on the
Shiloh road going about ninety-
eight miles an hour! She was a
couple of years older than me and
she'd borrowed her dad's. old
Dodge pick-up. We were in 'the
ditch on the opposite side of the
road and a good quarter of a mile
from the curve when she finally got
that thing stopped.
It took me a minute to get my
breath. I'd never experienced a ride
quite like this with the Farmall or
the old green Chevy. "Diane,,"
flashes of that top heavy vehicle
skidding through the gravel on two
wheels wouldn't shake from my
mind, "we're going to get out and
push this truck back up onto the
road," I tried to sound as calm as I


could. "and when we get it back up
on the road. I'm driving!"
I took my dnver's test in a
1960 Chevrolet. The Highway
Patrol road tester was about seven
feet tall. He weighed four hundred
pounds. And he didn't smile a lick!
I was about as scared and nervous
and intimidated as' I have ever
been. .... If you don't count a cou-
ple of late night cruises with Diane
Stoner.
I went oh my first go-by-arid-
pick-her-up 'real date in that
Chevy: 'Course, by then, I was
more interested in Mar' Hadley
Hayden:.than I was dnving an
automobile. I tried to get my arm
around her ... you ever notice
how big .they made :cars back -in
the sixties?...
'The first car I could call my
own was a 1963 Corvair Monza: It
was kinda like my shoes and shirts
from the old days-it was a hand-
me-down from Leon. But listeii, I
was a senior in college and prdud
to have it. I didn't mind the gas
fumes, when I turned the heater
on. The "where's the motor" jokes
didn't bother me.' It didn't drive
any less stable than a 19.46

plans for the inauguration had to

Our invitations arrived a few

Finding a hotel room at this late

anticipated, but we finally found
lodging approximately ten miles
south of the capital.
We will have to admit that our
fantasy ran a little wild about how
a presidential inauguration would
happen. We envisioned a solemn

The balls that we attended
were held in huge buildings deco-
rated in an elegant manner.

Extension Notes
by
Roy Lee Carter
Gulf County Extension Service


By: Roy Lee Carter
Woody ornamentals like all
other plants need a variety of
nutrients for healthy, normal
growth. Some of these elements
come in the fertilizer you buy.
Some may be in the soil around
your home. But, how can you tell
if a plant is getting the proper
food? If any of the elements it
needs is missing, you'll start see-
ing deficiency symptoms.
Landscape plants simply
can'tlook their best without abal-
anced diet of essential nutrients.
In case of severe or prolonged
deficiencies, they may even die.
You probably know that nitrogen,
phosphorous and potassium are
the major elements plants need.
Most of our regular fertilizers con-
tain these three ingredients. You
may be surprised to learn that
plants also need varying amounts
of minor elements such as mag-
nesitum, calcium, sulfur, man-
ganese iron, zinc molybdenum,
chlorine, and .boron.
Sometimes plants growing in
Florida soils don't get an adequate
diet, and there are some deficien-
cy symptoms. Information for this
article was provided by Extension
Urban Horticulture Specialist Dr.
Robert J. Black.
Most of the nutrient deficien-
cy problems one has with wood
ornamentals in Florida land-
scapes are due, at least partly, to
the poor quality of the soil.
Throughout most of the state, the
soil is sandy and slightly acid.
Florida does have alkaline sands
in some areas, especially along
the coast. Because of the large
amount of sand in Florida. soil,,
important nutrient elements are
easily leached out. That means
the water runs down through the
soil very quickly and carries
nutrients with it. When the water
moves below the root zone of your
plants, so do some of the soil ele-
ments your plants depend on for


the tiny differences among the
yellowing patterns. -It's these
shades of difference that must be
analyzed to determine which ele-
ment is :in short supply.
However, one usually can tell
that something is causing a nutri-
tional deficiency by looking for a
few easily recognized symptoms, a
plant's failure to grow vigorously.
even when it has plenty of light
and water, sparse foliage, and a
lot of dead wood on the plant.
These are all general indications
of some nutrient deficiency. If
such symptoms appear on woody
ornamentals in landscapes, follow
standard fertilizer recommenda-
tions and see if the condition
doesn't improve. If not, one
should seek expert advice as soon
as possible. Advice is available at
a garden center or County Exten-
sion Office.

proper nutrition.
Florida's soil chemistry is
another problem. Often essential
elements in soil are tied up in
chemical combinations that make
them unavailable to plants.
Another factor which can
cause a deficiency of one nutrient
is having too much of another in
the soil. For example, if one adds
potassium to soil that's low in
magnesium, you could make the
magnesium deficiency even
worse. High levels of one element
make it hard for plants to utilize
another.
Landscape plants need prop-
er amounts of various nutrients
for healthy growth. But, if a plant
isn't growing well, it's almost
impossible for most home garden-
ers to tell which -nutrient is
absent. Many of the deficiency,
symptoms that show up on
leaves, twigs, and branches can
.be misleading. For example. sev-
eral nutrient deficiencies cause
leaves to turn yellow. But, it usu-
ally takes an expert to recognize

Wewahitchka Receives


Funds for New Library


Wewahitchka has a public
library. It was started by the
Womans Club in 1941 and moved
to the old Courthouse 36 years
ago, where it remains. It has two
computers, two reading tables,
several thousand books and peri-
odicals, and is open 12:00 to 5:00
p.m., Monday thru Friday.
Last year Wewahitchka .citi-
zens, led by retired Gulf County
teacher Marlene Whitfield, real-
ized that if a modern library
would ever exist in the north end
of the county it would have to
become a civic project of volun-
teers, The idea quickly gained
support of the Gulf County
Friends of the Library which
made 'the first donation of $1000.
The volunteer group, now named
the Wewahitchka Library 2000
Building Committee, found strong
support from Commissioner Billy
Traylor. The project received sup-
port from the Gulf County Board
of Commissioners, Wewahitchka
Board of City Commissioners, and
City Manager.
The application for matching
funds to build a new 4000 square


foot library was approved by the
Florida Division of Libraries and
will be considered by the Legisla-
ture during the 2001 session.
Whether -it is funded in 2001 or
2002, the community must pro-
vide matching funds before the
state will issue any money for
construction. The total cost is
estimated to be $512,000 with
$256,000 anticipated from the
state.
The Wewahitchka Library
2000 Building Committee has
reached almost $135,000 of its
local goal. Although the commit-
tee has received strong financial

Represent GC At
Republican Meeting
The Republican Party of
Florida Annual Meeting was held
in Orlando Jan. 26th and 27th.
County Chairman Gary Ross and
State Committeewoman Sara
Ross attended representing Gulf
County.
High on the legislative.
agenda, as expected, is election
reforrn, protection of the military's
ability to vote,-educational learn-
ing for the disabled and teacher
pay raises.
Ross reports that another
,critical issue facing the state this
year is the loss of the last insur-
ance carrier covering long-term
care facilities on Feb. 1. This is
due in part to lawsuits by tort
lawyers that have resulted in liti-
gation claims in Florida that are
250% higher than the average
claim in other states.
Other significant issues that
will be addressed by the legisla-
ture include the cost of wind
storm (hurricane) insurance and
the need to find ways to spread
out the risk.
The party is also preparing for
the 2002 election cycle and
expects to field strong candidates
in all areas.

TERMIDORO
IF YOU'RE NOT ASKING FOR TERMIDOR.
YOU'RE ASKING FOR TRIDSIA.


COMPLETES TRAINING TO PROVIDE.
REVOLUTIONARY TERMITE CONTROL PRODUCTS.

Port St. Joe, Florida--Donnie's Total Pride Pest Control, Inc. is now an authorized provider
of termite control with Termidor, a revolutionary new termite product that has provided 100%
termite control for 5 years and 'counting in rigorous tests designed by, the United States
Department of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Donnie's Total Pride Pest Control, Inc. recently completed the Termidor training program,
designed by Aventis Environmental Science, the world's leading manufacturer of products for
effective and responsible pest control. Completion of the Termidor training program
demonstrates Donnie's Total Pride Pest Control, Inc. is committed to providing its customers
with the most effective and revolutionary termite control product available today. In Termidor ;:
training, pest management professionals learn about fipronil, the active ingredient in Termidor,
and how it works to eliminate termites from a home. Training participants also review termite
biology and the changes in termite control methods throughout history. In addition, trainees
learn about Terinidor's unique mode of action, where termites die from ingesting the
termiticide, and also from touching and grooming other termites who carry Termidor on their
bodies. Through this contact and ingestion mode of action, Termidor manages termite colonies
faster than baiting systems. "Termidor is the termite solution that many of our customers have
been waiting for," said Donnie Matthews of Donnie's Total Pride Pest Control, Inc.' "No
other termiticide in recent history has demonstrated 100% effectiveness at such diverse locations
across the country. This product kills termites in all structures, climates and soil types-typically
in three months or less."

Homeowners across the United States, but specifically in the South, have reason to fear
termites. According to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), termites-primarily
subterranean and Formosan termites-cost American homeowners approximately $2 billion
every year in treatment and repair costs. Termidor is a low-dose liquid termiticide with virtually
no odor that works faster than popular bait treatments offered to homeowners through pest
management firms. In nationwide tests, Termidor has demonstrated 100% control within 3
months of application when applied according to label directions and suggested application
rates. Bait programs typically take 6 to 18 months to control termite colonies and often require
re-treatment. For additional information on termite control with Termidor, call Donnie's Total
Pride Pest Control, Inc. at (850) 229-8720 or (850) 648-3018


If your not asking for Termidor, your asking for trouble.

"We're optimistic we'll have

future," Pitts commented on the
ongoing efforts.


In addition to the master plan
study, the study also focuses on
the importance of maintenance
dredging of the existing channel.
Routine maintenance was
discontinued several years ago
because of inactivity, yet the
depth and channel dimensions
have remained fairly consistent
because of the natural channel


created in the bay. The study will
look at the needs required tf'
maintain a viable channel, as well,
as lay the groundwork for many of
the environmental assessments.,
Public input received from thd
workshop will be evaluated anid
processed into the, existing plan-
ning and final phases of the ma6-.

Participants discuss the future possibilities of the port development plans with members of

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2001 PAGE 9A


From the Principal of


Wewahitchka


High School

*by Dr. Bill Truby


An article in a recent issue of,
Reader's Digest caught my attention.
The title, "The Seven Commandments
of Parenting," seemed to suggest that
everything we need to know about the
toughest job in the world could be
reduced to seven simple rules. After
i-eviewing the content, I felt there
might at least be some good points to
share.
1. Be a parent, not a pal. 2.
Discipline early: 3. Spend time with,
your kids. .4. Control the electronics.
5. Know what your child is up to. 6.
Don't get carried away with self-
esteem.7. Stay marned. .
Definitely some food for thought.
if you would like more details on these
issues, please contact us at the olfice.
We'll be glad to forward a copy of the
entire article to you. .
It is hard to imagine that we are,
already through January. However.
the number of absences some of our
students have accumulated already
would indicate that it is March: or
April! Being absent is no small matter.
Excused absences happen to and for
everyone. Life can give us many rea-
sons to not be at school or work.
However, unexcused absences can
really hurt a student. A zero in the
grade book and a lesson hot learned
are a couple of very practical problems
of not being in class.. Did you know
that utnexcused absences could lead
to truancy court, loss of a driver's
license. or even removal from school?
A bad decision can lead to a bad habit
Jiat can lead to worse consequences.
We are certainly grateful to some
very generous people who donated a
Gateway computer to our school last
Friday. Working with Gulf
Correctional Institution, Jennifer
Craig. AmTy Rings, Jeffrey Simpson,
Angela Pattno, Shannon Barnes, and
Captain Davila joined forces to orga-

ES is excited to be partici-
.pating in. the Scripps Howard
National Spelling Bee again this
year. The bee is an educational
promotion sponsored by the E. \
Scripps Company, in coinjunctionr
with 230 newspaper and other
, authorized sponsors.
-The purpose is to help stu-
dents improve their spelling,
increase their vocabularies, learn
concepts, and develop correct
English usage that will help them
all their lives.
Words for the bee are selected
from a collection of over 3,500
words grouped in nearly 30, cate-
gories. Some categories contain
words that are more challenging
to spell than those found in other
categories. Words in each catego-
ry are divided into three difficulty
levels: beginning, intermediate,
and advanced. Words within each
level are listed in, order of pro-
gressing difficulty.
Both the WES and Gulf
County spelling bees begin with
easy words and gradually.
progress to more difficult words:
Contestants .are provided a com-
plete list of the words several days
prior to the bee.
Practice spelling words
grouped into thematic categories
allow spellers not only to acquire
knowledge but also to develop
cognitive skills and understand-
ing of ideas and values: Spellers
will experience the satisfaction of
learning language not only for the
sake of correct spelling, but also
for the sake of cultural and intel-
lectual literacy.
This year's WES Spelling Bee
wvas held in December and fea-
tured eighteen spellers in the fifth

believe that every contestant is'a
winner, and we are especially
proud of our Faith Christian

All of our students thorough-
ly enjoyed the chapel program last
Monday featuring Mrs. Julie Boyd
and her "friend," B. C. Holmes.
Mrs. Boyd is an accomplished
ventriloquist and children's
speaker from Tallahassee. She
and B.C. (her not .so dumb
"dummy") entertained the stu-
dents and also instructed them as
she performed. Later, she told our
older students about the work she
does with the Baptist Children's
Home.
Don't forget to check at The-
Learning Shop and Target for
teaching tools and learning games
to bring to the -pre-school calling
shower to be held February 10th,
from 2:00 until 4:00 p.m. at the
Windolfs house. The teachers
have registered their needs and
wants at those two stores in
Panama- City. It will be a wel-
comed "I love you" Valentine for
the students in our kindergarten
,classes.
This is a good time to thank
all of our readers who have
prayed for, given to, and served at
Faith Christian School during the
year 2000. We ask you to contin-
ue with us through this next year.

School News

By: Kimberly Burkert


Hey readers! 1Miss me? To
begin with I offer my congratula-
tions to Kelly Geoghagan, spelling
bee champ. She won the school
bee with the word "pollen" and the
county bee with the word "woe."
I would like to remind all of
the students at port St. Joe
Middle School of the dreaded' test.
Yes, I'm talking about the FCAT.
There are 20 school days until
FCAT Reading and Math. The
eighth grade goal for this year is
3.35. We will strive for 3.351 There
are about two weeks left until the
FCAT Writing Assessment for the
eighth grade.
.Gold cards are in the office.
You may pick up your gold cards
during,break or before and after
school.
Once again, people, the lost
and found is still overflowing.
Students, for those of you
who don't know. Mrs. Carolyn
'Witten is going to dress up like
Britney Spears and become
Britney Witten for a day. That is,
if we reach our'school wide A.R.
reading goal. Read, read, read!
It seems that it's time for me
to wrap up this week. The answer
to the previous riddle is "nothing."
For those of you that racked your
brains trying to get this one, don't
think so hard! Keep it simple.
Now for this week: A horse is tied
to a five foot rope, six feet away
from it is a bale of hay. Without
breaking the rope, the horse was
able to get to the hay. How was
that possible?
Think about that, and keep it
simple! See you next time, same
time, same place.

Little League


Face Injuries


We've written at length about
how effective mouthguards are in
protecting the athlete from lip,
tongue, and teeth injuries when
participating ,in contact sports.
However, mouthguards alone may
not be enough. One recent study
linked baseball as the leading
cause of mouth, head, and face
injuries among the five to 14-year-
old little league set.
An article in Pediatric
Dentistry advocates the use of


face shields as the best way to pre-
venting the more than 50,000 head
and facial injuries. Realizing that,
most little league games are
played on hard dirt fields with balls -
being pitched at 60 to 70 miles per
-hour, the authors recommended
that face shields be used as a way
to reduce injuries.
One type of shield, made from
molded, clear plastic snaps onto
the ear covers the batting helmets.
Another made from wire, fits over,-
the face like a catcher's mask.
While the kids may not think
they're macho, dentists are raving
about them.

Brass Band in Concert


Modeled on the British-style brass
band with distinct instrumenta-
tion of brass and percussion, the
RCBB is the first professional
concert band to be established in
the United States in over 25 years.
Now in its sixth season under
the baton of conductor and music
director Denis Colwell, the band is.
the most active professional con-
cert band in the U.S., presenting
an average of 90 concerts a year.
The group proved to be such a
success with Pittsburgh audi-
ences and critics that it' quickly
.developed a highly popular sub-
scription concert series. Soon
thereafter, River City began tour-
ing extensively in the Mid-Atlantic
states and, during the 1987-88
season, expanded its touring
activities throughout America.
In 1988 the River City Brass
Band extended its touring arena
to include Australia and New
Zealand, when it joined the
Chicago Symphony Orchestra and
the Mormon Tabernacle Choir as
America's musical representatives
to Australia's Bicentennial cele-
brations, performing at the
Sydney Opera House and at the
most prestigious music festivals
in the Pacific region, the Adelaide
and Melbourne Arts Festivals and
the New Zealand International
Festival of the Arts.
Often called "The Boston Pops
-In Brass," the River City Brass
Band's concert at the Marina
Civic Center will display the' daz-


zling virtuosity of the group's 29
musicians and the broad range of
sound which a brass band can
produce, and feature a lush array
of virtuosic brass and percussion
in a program filled with big band
favorites, rousing marches,
Broadway show-stoppers and
Hollywood classics.
Denis Colwell is conductor
and music director of the River
City Brass, He joined the ensem-
ble in 1982 as cornetist and was
subsequently promoted tp apsis-
tant principal solp cornet. He was
named Associate Conductor by
RCBB's founder Robert Bernat jn
1991. Colwell assumed all con-
ducting duties in May, 199-1 and
the responsibililit-. of' music
director were added six months
later.
From 1988 to 1995 Colwell
served as assistant head of the
Department of Music at Carnegie
Mellon University. He continues
to serve on the CMU faculty as
music director of the .Carnegie
Mellon Wind Ensemble and his
recordings with that ensemble
have earned critical acclaim. A
Pittsburgh native, Colwell studied
trumpet performance as an
undergraduate and graduate stu-
dent with CMU's renowned trum-
pet professor Anthony
Pasquarelli. Colwell was a founder
of the Carnegie Mellon Youth
Brass Band and the River City
Youth Brass Band and has served
as conductor of both ensembles.

food, and visits. The acts of kind-
ness were overwhelming and truly
portrayed the love of our Lord.
A special thank you to

The prayers were truly felt
and the love felt will never be for-
gotten. God bless each of you
richly.

So Great A Cloud Of Witnesses

We cannot know where we're going until.we know where we came from.


The search for the past, for
our ancestry, is a fascinating pur-
suit, full of dead ends and brick
walls and wonderful moments of
discovery. The road to discovery is
not limited by location or ability to
travel to those grass covered'
cemeteries and attic depositories
of crumbling records. The begin-
ning place is as simple and easy
as identifying who you are, who
your parents are, and the puzzle
begins to form.
You will need a method to
store your information, whether
you choose to use pedigree sheets,
a simple notebook or a family tree
data base software (I use and rec-
ommend Family Tree Maker), the
important thing is to begin the
process. Start with your name
(using your maiden name, if
female and married), your date
and place of birth. Add your par-
ents (being sure to use your
mother's maiden name), their
birth information and-you're a
GENEALOGIST. Begin adding
grandparents and you have begun
to weave the tapestry of your fam-
ily.
Most of the beginning infor-
-'.iiation can be gathered in simple'
conversations wifth family merm?.
-. bers. Great Aunts and
Grandparents are full of family
lore and most, with a little
encouragement, love to tell the
family stories to eager ears. Take
good notes or use a pocket
recorder, you don't want to miss a
single detail, it will be useful down
the road when you're looking high
and low for an uncle named Raz
and you find a note from a talk
with your grandmother where she,
called him Rasmus..


You will want to embellish
your records beyond dates and
places. If possible add the cause
of death, if deceased, (this may be
valuable information in tracking
genetic health problems) and
nothing spices up the family his-
tory like those tales passed down
from generation to generation.
You can probably remember that
story that's ,been told at every
family reunion about how your
great grandaddy built the home
place by cutting his own timber
and digging his own well. Your
grandchildren will want to know
that too.
One of my greatest regrets is
that I didn't listen to all those sto-
ries told while I sat swinging my
legs over the edge of the front
porch at my aunt's house, miles
down a two-rut dirt road some-
where near Alford. I can remem-
ber the "ghost" stories as I inched
my way.back up against the wall,
no more dangling legs; but, the
family tales held no long term
interest. Too late 'I began to
understand the value of these tiny
treasures of days past in our fam-
ily.
SGet started,, watch the puzzle
f aIl into place. If you have a per-
sonal computer, the data bases

Folklore Preserves North

Florida's Unique Culture


Northern Florida resident
Betsy James has always been fas-
cinated by the art of storytelling.
In an attempt to preserve the
unique culture for her native'
North Florida, she has spent
many years recording the stories
told in her newly published book.
Sandspurs and Sawgrass: A
Collection of True Stories from
North Florida (available in paper-
back and electronic formats from
IstBooks Library).
According to James, her :
record of North Florida's folklore
contains ghosts, humorous situa-
tions, and tales that touch the
heart. Sandspurs and Sawgrass:
A Collection of True Stories from
North Florida is about "moonshin-


ing, fishing, sinkholes, arid dirt-
surfing."
James mentions that North
Florida is a unique and largely
unspoiled area rich in folklore,
and she seeks to preserve the sto-
* ries that abound there for genera-
tions to come. Consequently.
Sandspurs and Sawgrass: A
Collection of True Stories from
North Florida is a 6work still in
progress; she plans to publish
other editions in the future.
James graduated from the
University of South Florida with a
bachelor's degree .in Advanced
Liberal Arts. She also spent live
years at Florida Agricultural and
Mechanical University studying


flute and dance.
Currently, she residents in
Madison, with her teenage son
and elderly father. "We are pleased.
,to offer Betsy James's book
through the istBooks Library,"
says President Tim Jacobs. "It has
fresh and insightful stories'to.tell,
and we believe it is well worth the
reader's attention."

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2001 PAGE 5B


Free Dental Care Offered On


Valentine's Day
Dr. Frank May of Port St. Joe
has a unique Valentine's Day pre-
sent for the needy of his commu-
nity. Free dental treatment on a
first come, first serve basis at his
dental office on Valentine's Day.
"I have been blessed with a
successful dental practice" said
Dr. May, "and I want to give a


by May's Staff
token of my sincere appreciation
back to my community."
Dr. May, who has been prac-
ticing dentistry in Port St. Joe for
11 years, wants to let everyone
know that his entire staff insisted
that they work this Valentine's
Day without pay. "My staff,'is my
greatest asset, and I can't tell yot


how proud I am of them for orga-
nizing and putting this benefit
together." May stated.
Dr. May wants everyone to
know that no one will be refused
treatment, but he hopes that the
truly needy will be allowed first
access to his care. Patients must
be at least 12 years of age to be
seen, and accompanied by a par-
ent or guardian if under the age of
18.
No appointments will be


made, patients will be given a time
for their treatment on a first
come, first serve basis Valentine's
morning beginnings at 8:30 a.m.,
and as much treatment will be
accomplished as time allows.
"This will not be comprehensive
care" says Dr. May, "rather, we
will attempt to satisfy patients'
immediate needs in the time we
have available"' Treatment will
include cleaning, x-rays, fillings,
extractions, diagnostics,9 and pain


control.
Dr. May hopes to make
Dentists with a Heart anannual
Valentine's Day event, and would
live to see Dentists with a Heart
spread through the country.
"Dentists are dedicated, compas-
sionate, honest professionals who
work hard to provide excellent
care for their patients," May says.
"It would be great for our profes-
sion, and for needy people nation-
wide, if this event caught on."
