Jorge San Pedio

San Pedro Seeks
Commission Seat


" Jorge J, San Pedro has
announced his intent to run for
the Group I seat on the Port St.
Joe City Commission in the
upcoming May election.
San Pedro is a former com-
missioner of Port St. Joe, having
been elected to that position in
May, 1999. He gave up the seat
last fall during a bid for the Gulf
County Commission.
Born in the central province
of Rancho Veloz, Cuba, Dr. San
Pedro was later educated in
Havana, where he graduated in
1:954 from medical school.
Soon afterwards, he opened a
pediatric surgery practice' in a

Scenario iS--
Scenario 15


For Friday,
whose lines to stay between will
likely be the hot subject as the
five commissioners try to come to
a consensus.
During the past week, the
board has held one workshop
(last Thursday) and discussed the
matter during their regular meet-
ing Tuesday evening.
Making a very long story
shorter, they discussed several
scenarios during the workshop
with, the only major differences
between the board being focused
on District 4 and District 5. Each
scenario presented. except for the.
one presented by District 4
Commissioner Nathan Peters, Jr.,
placed North Port St. Joe, a strip
of Port St. Joe along Highway 98,
and all or parts of Cape San Blas,
Simmons Bayou. and Indian .Pass
into Distnrict 4.
STheo plan presented by
Nathan Peters. Jr. left his district
basically intact, but expanded the
area to include Howard Creek. He
presented an amended version of.
that during Tuesday's board
meeting that took Howard Creek
back out and expanded only his.
Port St.: Joe area. His amended
version also called for prisoners to'
be removed from the census
count and not to be included in
district line configurations (since
they don't vote).

Scallop Workshop Draws


A Large Crowd Thursday

Small Counts Prompt Public Input


A panel of Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-,
sion representatives listened to
input from local residents last
Thursday evening as one of Gulfs
favorite summer pastimes. "scal-
lops." was the main subject for
discussion.
Extremely low scallop counts-
'have drawn much attention to the
health of the tasty mollusk in St.
Joseph Bay. FWC panel members
outlined some of those numbers
and discussed the repercussions.
but otherwise listened to what
local folks thought about the
problem and suggested solutions.
Panel members did explain
that no changes would be made to
the 'current planned season this.
year, and that no proposals to do
such have been presented to date.
Biologist Bill Arnold delivered
the cold, hard, already known
facts that St. Joseph Bay scallop
counts are very low. Arnold could
not offer an explanation as to why
numbers were low even though he
noted several possibilities includ-
ing. red tide, which has surfaced
in the bay over the past few years.
Arnold told those present that
the scallop count fell below the
critical level in the 2000 season,
last year.


"If there is no change this
year, I would say we have a prob-
lem," Arnold said of the count.




^ -I ,:lit Li^iSL


Of course, most of the people
'present didn't need any scientific
data to tell them which something
they were already painfully' aware.
Scallopers of the local vanety and
visitors have seen all of the evi-
dence for themselves. .
The question is-what are we
going to do about it??'?
For the most part. those pre-
sent cautiously stated they would

Most cautiously stated
they would support
season changes.
be willing to make changes, if
deemed necessary to protect the
scallop'.
Ann Harvey, manager of St.
Joseph Peninsula State Park,
suggested some consideration be
given to moving the season back
some to allow the scallops to
mature to a larger size before har-
vesting.
The season currently opens
July 1, but the scallop is very
small early in the season. Within
just a few weeks of that time, they
have grown significantly and
would be less likely to be wasted,
she said. Visitors grow tired of
trying to clean the smaller scal-
lops and end up trashing them,
Harvey further explained. Harvey
also said she would support clos-

ing the season until the scallop
numbers recovered, if it became
necessary.
Bob King told the panel that
the St. Joseph Bay Committee
had recently unanimously voted
in favor of moving the season
back a few weeks (third Friday in
July) in an effort to allow the scal-
lop time to grow before being har-'
vested.
Local business-: owner Boyd
Pickett differed with some of the
changes discussed.-He noted that
other external forces could be
part of the problem-such as
higher than normal water temper-
atures or lack of rainfall.
He expressed his thoughts
that the best way to deal with the
problem was to leave it alone and
let Mother Nature deal with it.
Other business owners also
expressed concerns about losing
business, especially at the start of
the tourist season and around
traditional Fourth of July week-
end crowds.
James McNeill, businessman'
and. local pioneer, acknowledged
that the oronger the scallops are
left in the water the less it takes to
satisfy.
Ron Morrow said the bad 'sea-
son last year hurt his cottage
rental during a time frame that
they would normally all be booked'
to the max. He also underscored
the extreme importance of scallop
season on his business.
"If it takes closing the season
to protect scalloping for the
future, that's fine ... personally I
hope shortening the season
works," Morrow said.
The panel reiterated that no
changes were on the drawing
board, but a close eye was being
kept on scallop' counts and test
data.
As the meeting ended, folks
present were crossing their fin-
gers and toes in hopes that dras-
tic positive changes would begin
to show up this year . But,
optimism was not very high that
would be the case.
Much more information will
be made available when the June.
scallop count surveys are made.

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY 4 W by Kesley Colbert

Do,-w v vz K4 yCoie


My, Oh My, What An



Exciting Adventure!

O-h-h-h-h, have we had an exciting adventure!!!
The Star operated for over 62 years out of the same building on
Williams Avenue. We did expand several fold as years passed, but
just the same, imagine how many treasures were stored away.
Some of those treasures, in fact, are still stored away and many
others are in the process of finding the great storage facility in junk
heaven.
Words can not express how pleased we are with our new quar-
ters, but getting here was a blessing and a nightmare all of its own.
For nearly two months, I've answered everyone: who inquired
about the status of our new building and when we're moving-
"First of April, come on by and help."
Now everyone had to have known I didn't really expect folks to
show up. Then again, what's that, quote from the good book, "Ask
and you shall receive. "Well, I don't know exactly what God looks
like, but there were sure a lot of folks who looked pretty heavenly
to me and The Star staff over the weekend, as they pitched in to
help us move in-one way or another.
Hands down, the biggest help was 16 folks from the Covenant
House Mission. Not a shirt tail hit one of those 16 person's backs
as they helped carry countless numbers of boxes, put up shelves,
redistribute juhk, and clean up at our old site.
Not only. were they incredibly good help, but their attitudes
matched their work ethic. It "almost" made the move fun just to be
around such a wonderful group of folks.
Second on the list was Mrs. Janet King. Now Mrs. Janet never
actually came to The Star, but she did send Dr. Bob King along
with greens, squash, onions, bar-b-que pork, the hottest hot sauce
I've ever tasted, and absolutely without exception the best crack-
lin' bread known to man. Much more food was sent. Mama brought
by a ham and some turkey, which by the way we're still eating on
S. the only way those leftovers could be better would be if I had
some more of Mrs. King's cracklin' bread to go along with them.
Trailers, trucks, and other necessary instruments to move with
fell into our hands like manna from heaven all weekend long. One
'individual drove up in his pick-up truck to see how we were com-
ing along, and when he returned to his truck to leave he discovered
he-was going to have 'to drive by the other building and get
unloaded before he could continue on his way.
Jim "the computer man" Hampton, from Georgia, came to set
up our computers-but as anyone who has computers knows, they
still don't work right: 1Mark"'Lamberson, Timothy Miller, Dan
Johnson, Steve Wood (Chevron), John Ford, and Jerry Stojtoe
made major contributions to the effort in one way or another. 'Even
new Chamber of Commerce Director Sandra Chafin and her hus-
band, Sonny, made the mistake of dropping by with her work
clothes on .
My pastor, Brother John Adkins, even dropped by Saturday
and prayed over us while we moved the commercial printing press-
es ... we sure needed that
Now, there is probably more than one or two people I've forgot-,
ten .. like Melita and Howard Davis. Heck, Melita even claimed
us almost kin at some point in time over the weekend.
Let me start that sentence over again--Now there's probably'
more than one or two people I've forgotten, but indeed.the #1 ,team'
was the staff of The Star and many of their family members. I
would compare these folks with anybody's "best of the best." Some
of the staff only saw the light of day through the windows at the
front of the building over the long, long weekend.'
This move has been a tremendous amount of work and"there is
still much to be done, but it truly has been a blessing to be part of
such a wonderful adventure.
Don't look for it to happen again anytime soon though .
209-211 Reid Avenue will probably be home base for a long, long.
.... time!

Dozens of Memories Stored Up


A LETTER FROM MY old
friend "Danielj, the Printer" from
up in Winchester, Tennessee,
was in the mail Thursday morn-
ing. "Daniel" was commiserating
with us over our move this week-
end. It seems as if he has moved
his print shop two times over the
past years, since he first went
into business in 1946.
That's about as long as we
have been in business here, and
this is our first move.
You old timers remember
"Daniel," I'm sure. He was the
kid brother of the late Emmett
Daniell, the former grocer, and
later on, our solid waste depart-
ment operator.
Emmett-Was around here for
years before he died.
Occasionally his brother, Jimmy,
would come down from
Winchester for a visit and while
he was here, he would naturally
come by our place to see what we
had put in since his last visit
here.


"Daniel" was a unique print-
er. He operated in his own style,
which wasn't along the lines of
an ordinary printer; still isn't!

DANIELL SENT ME a, photo
of the inside of his plant after
the latest move and his place,
like ours, has just GROWN from
the one man operation it once
was to the vibrant business it is
today.
Along with his typed letter
[making about as many mistakes
as I do] was an article on his
plant and the little things he
does to improve business, such
as answer the telephone himself,


Daniell is located- right near
The Uniyersity of the South,
where Kes went to school. The
University of the South is locat-,
ed on top'of a mountain between
Chattancinoaa and- Nashville. It's
also where Walter Wilder went to
.-school. "' .
Brother, Will and I went up
there for a homecoming football
game one year. We left here right
after the Sharks' game one
Friday night, and drove all night
long. Back then, their football
stadium wasn't any larger than
ours. Very disappointing! Of
course, .the school wasn't any
larger either! ...

Better Paying


Jobs For Gulf


;by: Grace M. Ugalde, Your
Capitol Bureau
More better-paying jobs are
likely to come to Gulf County, if a
proposal before the legislature is
approved.
If Senate Bill 460 becomes
law, the tax credit given to busi-
nesses that locate in Florida
Enterprise Zones will double. Gulf
County is designated a Florida
Enterprise Zone. Florida Enter-
prise Zones are areas designated
by Legislature- that are targeted
for, economic revitalization. This
means businesses are offered
financial incentives to locate
there.
.4 ."The state is providing higher
incentives to bring in businesses,"
said Burt Von Hoff, community
development liaison at the Office
of Tourism Trade 'and Economic
Development.
Von Hoff said the likelihood
SB; 460 will pass is pretty good.
And, he said,' the amendments
recommended by Sen. Charlie
A. Clary, R-Destin, will have a posi-
tive-effect on the state's 34 enter-
prise zones. :
Clary said the bill has a bright
outlook.
-The plan revises the enter-
prise zone job tax credits to base
the credits upon the creation of
ne?jobs, rather than the filling of
existing jobs with new individuals.
As 'a reward,-Clary said, the bill'
increases the amount of the cred-
its and allows the: credits to be
used for a longer period ,of time.
.John bickson, owner of Gulf
County Shipbuilding, qualified for
tax credits under the existing
Florida Enterprise Zone program,
which has been in operation since
1982; Dickson said; he's sure the
new incentives will attract more
Business to the .area. Dickson
relocated to Gulf County about a
year and a half ago to access the
labor pool and enjoy a good loca-
tion at an affordable price.
'.-,The Florida Enterprise Zone
program is administered by
Enterprise Florida, which is a
partnership between state govern-
ment and business leaders. It is
the principal economic develop-
ment organization for the State of
Florida.

Former chairman for the
Economic Development Council
Kenny Wood said Gulf County is
recruiting businesses that offer
service and manufacturing. "We're
not going to rule out anything as
long as it is environmentally safe,"
Wood said.
Senate Committee on Com-
merce and Economic Opportun-
ities unanimously passed SB 460
on March 27. The Senate Finance

Districts
-From Page 1
What the board did do was
vote 3-2 to tentatively accept sce-
nario 11-B. presented by
Commissioner Billy Traylor.
Traylor had not presented a pro-
posal during the workshop ses-
sion, but during Tuesday's meet-
ing revealed his plan.
His outline was similar to
some of those presented which
route District 4 along Highway 98
through Simmons Bayou and out
to Indian Pass and Cape San
Blas, circumventing around two
edges of District 5. The same plan
also took a small portion of Port
St. Joe out of District 3 and added
much of Overstreet to the district.
Commissioners Jerry Barnes
(District 5) and Commissioner
Peters (District 4) voted against
the idea.
Peters argued that the board
had told the public that they
would make no decisions until
public workshops were an-
nounced and held. He also noted
that a public workshop was being
set for 5:00 on Friday. April 20th
to discuss redistricting and get
public input just as the board had
said it would do last Thursday.
Traylor countered that the

John T. Simpson Scouting Building Gets Window Dressing
Citizens Federal Savings Bank, presented the Rotary Club with funds to finance "window
dressings" for the entire John T. Simpson Scouting building.
Club President Jay Leffert (right) and project chairman Allen Cox (far right), received the
funds on behalf of the club. Rotarian and Citizens' Chairman of the Board Dave May (left) along
with Greg Johnson, President/COE, presented the funds.


vote does not exclude the public,
but rather just established a
starting point.
Several folks from the public
also offered input.
Dr. Ralph Peterson, repre-
senting the Cape San Blas
Property Owners Association, said
the group was uninformed on the
issue and would like to see work-
shops held before action 'was
taken.
Allen Cox suggested the logi-.
cal starting point seemed to him
to be the existing district lines.
Phil Jones questioned
whether working the District 4
lines around District 5 was gerry-
mandering or creating unneces-,
sary fingerlings.
Commissioners Traylor (Dis-
trict 2) and Carmen McLemore
(District 1) called for the vote to
be taken which resulted in the
3-2 decision.
Traylor's plan has 2,906.10
people in District 1, 2,906.40 in
District 2, 2,573.50 in District 3,
2,451.95 in District 4, and
2,494.05 in District 5. He
acknowledged that the numbers
were high in Districts 1 and 2, but
predicted that Districts 1, 2 and 3
would grow more rapidly over the
next few years.
District I numbers include


251 inmates at Gulf Forestry
Camp and District 2 includes
1,059 inmates at Gulf
Correctional Institution, accord-
ing to census data used to estab-
lish the lines.
Commissioners will continue
the redistricting debate and invite
the public to add input during a
public workshop announced for
April 20th at 5:00 p.m. in the
commission meeting room.
One other concern to be
addressed is what the school
board does. It also has estab-
lished districts, and in order for
the commission and school dis-
tricts ,to remain the same. both
boards would eventually have to
agree to the same plan in order for
the county to remain under one
established set of district bound-
aries.

*Woody Miley approached the
board concerning recent conver-.
sations about the .boaters guide
produced by Gulf County and the
St. Joseph Bay Aquatic Preserve
overseers ,(ANERR). He said the-
data was in no way meant to
imply that St. Joseph Bay was a
permanent or predominant home
for manatees, and that St. Joseph
Bay was not on anyone's long or
short list to be even considered
for regulation due to manatee Pl,!
..ings
*Gulf County Health


Department Director Doug Kent
explained to the board that Dr.
Richard Hodskins, with the state
health board, had been asked to.
review Gulfs cancer death rates
(59 in 1999) since they are out of
line with the state average. He,
expressed that average age and
lifestyle likely were probable
causes for Gulfs high figures, but
felt the 'state expertise was needed
to verify that.

Get Down the Fiddle...


Jean Etheridge started play-
ing the fiddle when she was just
,barely old enough to get her bal-
ance (three or four years old). She
"picked up the gift from her father,
Earl Shelton.
Jean said she was reared out
in the woods from Shelton Corner
(which is out in the woods from
Marianna). Earl and Jean just
played for the enjoyment of play-
ing, entertaining friends and fam-
ily throughout her childhood.
""' At age 18, she quit playing,
married Fead Etheridge, and you
know what they say-first comes
love, then comes marriage, and
,the fiddlin' went away with the
;baby. carriage. In the .late 1970's,
as herichildren, Mike and Tim,
grew up, she found time to "get
down the fiddle and get down
the bow."


This is just one of several
competitions and events that
Jean has either participated in or
competed. She won first place irn
the senior division in the Annual
Bluegrass and Fiddler Contest in
Robertsdale, Alabama and was
invited last year to play as part of
the old timers showcase at
Keystone Heights.
Mrs. Jean had no problem'
getting the Rotary Club members


to respond to her fiddlin' as she
played Buck Creek, Golden
Anniversary Waltz, and A Jigg.
She said all competition fiddlin'
requires a hoe down and waltz be
played according to Tennessee
Valley Old Time Fiddler
Association contest rules.
Jean and Fead are enjoying
their retirement traveling the
country to play, listen, compete,
and enjoy fiddlin'.

fied her as "o6ne of the best fiddle

Beach Baptist Chapel, located,

Alice Andrews Machen
"And gladly would she learn and
gladly teach"-Chaucer
I knew her well for over a half century.
Alice was more than a pearl of great
price, because she had a kindness
about her that led her, for friends
and neighbors both. I
To sacrifice her time and energy .to
make all things nice for those who
needed her in any way at all.
She had a gentle touch for those in
misery's pain, and will be remem-
bered as a very special one who
gave so much to others.
Her classes were fun to many stu-
dents who came her way;
she could sway the sluggard to try,
then win.
I knew the girl who loved to jitterbug,
and the woman who loved to help.
She was drawn to the sea and to the
sun, and I don not know anyone
who loved life as much.
Her laughter Is a melody that still
rings through time.
I know, for sure. she Is in a Place
Sublime.

On Dental


Anxiety

Many people find their dental
appointments more enjoyable by using
nitrous oxide. Also called "sweet air" or:
laughing gas" (it really doesn't make
you laugh), it can help you relax. The'
gas is administered through a loose-
fitting nosepiece that usually stays on
during the procedure. It can give a
light-hearted feeling that, for most
people, is very relaxing. It's adminis-
tered with oxygen. The effect wears off
a few minutes after breathing oxygen"
alone.
Start to build rapport with the
dentist by discussing your fears with-
out embarrassment.


Over the past twelve years, Dr. May and his staff have satisfied
thousands of individuals by delivering state of the art, painless

Gulf Coast Electric Sends

Students To Tallahassee


On March 28, Gulf Coast
Electric Cooperative (GCEC) sent
students to the state capitol to
learn more about the state gov-.
ernment. Each year Gulf Coast
EC holds the Washington Youth
Tour contest at its headquarters
in Wewahitchka. .Gulf Coast EC
sponsors this annual event with
the help of many local volunteer
fire departments and civic organi-
zations. Two winners and a run-
ner-up are chosen based on an
oral interview by a panel of three
judges. Each contestant is graded
on poise, speaking ability, and
community involvement. The two
winners are sent to .Washington
D.C. for a week-long tour of the
nation's capitol.
This year's two winners were
Cerrelle Hanes and Daniel
Jordan. While in Tallahassee

-when we visited. As a result, we
were 'able to see blacksmithing,
shingle making, candy making,
eat melt-in-your-mouth home-
made biscuits with homemade.
preserves, and experience first
hand many other "lost arts." We
had a blast! Thank you, Mrs.
Judy Williams for making all the
arrangements for our class to
have this very valuable and enjoy-
able learning experience.
The sixth grade traveled to
Wakulla Springs on the same day
our eighth grade was in
Blountstown. While the bus ride
was a bit tedious, the students
and teachers enjoyed the relaxed,
laid back atmosphere of the
springs and their surroundings.
The word heard most often upon
their return was alligators! We all
know that sharks and alligators
don't mix! Special thanks to Mrs.
Judy Campbell for arranging this
trip for our sixth grade.
Eight grade students. .don't
forget that Mrs. Williams must
have your project topic by Friday,

Food Services Manager Mr.
Becky Hanmm was recently named
Para-Proflessional of the Year for
\VES. The honor could not have
gone to anyone more worthy.
Ms. Hamm has worked hard
to create a pleasant, atmosphere .
for our students, teachers and for
the food service personnel with
whom she works.
Ms. Hamm plans menus each
week. which are both nutritious,
and appeal to the appetites of
most youngsters. Planning and.
preparing meals for nearly 600
students is an awesome responsi-:
bility. But Ms. Hamm doesn't stop
there. She willingly assists teach-
ers and students with many
unusual extension activities.
On any given day, you mayN
find Ms. -B."ky knee-deep- in the-.
mass production of pizzas' to be
sold by enterprising students.
making --dinosaur pudding" with
students involved in the thematic
unit. or dicing produce scraps for
" the rabbits and hamsters kept as
classroom pets.
Teachers, know that in a
pinch Ms. Becky will be there with
an aluminum foil we need to com-
plete the model of the solar' sys-
tem or the vinegar required for the
science experiment.
Ms. Hamm, nee Armstrong, is
one of Wewa's own. She graduat-
ed from WHS in 1984. Ms. Becky
is married to Marty Hamm and
their daughter Jessica is one of
our sixth graders.
Probably the most remark-
able thing about Ms. Becky is her
attitude and smile. No matter
what the weather, no matter what
our glum outlook, we can count
on a smile and bit of cheer from
Ms. Becky. The Warrior family
asks that youjoin us' in congratu-
ilating. Ms. Becky Hamm on being.
voted Para-Professional ,of the
year.

"Forever Young" was the
theme for this year's
junior/senior prom. And it turned
out to .be a wonderful evening for
everyone in attendance.
Youngsters and adults alike were
dressed to the 9's. Tuxes, beauti-.
ful dresses, excellent hors d' oeu-
vres, music, and an aura of grace
and majesty transformed our
"Commons" into something far
from the ordinary.
A big thank you is sent to the
junior class and its officers for a
well-conceived and well-support-
ed event. We also thank the advis-
ers, Mrs. Cox and Mrs. Wade for
their leadership. And thanks,
Mrs. April Andrews, for all of your
volunteer service. Congratula-
tions are in order for the king and
queen, of the prom, John Poe and
Tia Clark.
Last Thursday was also, a
unique day. In the morning we
had a special event which brought
us in touch with some issues that
seem to cause us to stumble once
in a while. This extended time in
TAP (Teachers As Parents)
enabled students to write down
their ideas about how others have
solved similar challenges and how.
we might do the same. We will try
to provide these ideas in forth-
coming news releases.
Later on in the day Thursday
we had our annual "Spring Fling"
sponsored by the Gulf County
Health Department. A group of
young people called "XS", enter-
tained and delivered positive mes-
sages pertaining to life style. Our
student body enjoyed this unique
, presentation. and hopefully ,wilL,.
apply the information to a
healthy, prosperous, and lengthy
4- life.
Also last Friday WJHS spon-
sored a fund-raising golf outing at
St. Joseph's Bay Country Club.
Several hundred dollars were
raised to help offset the eighth
grade grad night trip to Sea World
later on this month. Thanks to all
that participated, and thanks to
the country club for sharing your
facility and making special
arrangements for us. 'You're a
great partner! -
Thanks, NHS, for another
gold card party. It is so neat to be
able to reward so many of our
young scholars this way.
Thank you to the many who
responded to the news about the
loss of NROTC for the future. Just,
to reiterate, if you are concerned
about this cut by the Department
of the Navy,- please send .a letter
.C/,Dr. Truby at the high school.
He will forward your letter and all
concerns to Mr. Kelley and the
Board who in turn will make all of
our voices heard. By the way, our
unit received all 4's at its annual
inspection last week. These are


ber to come for good food, a lot of
fun, great fellowship--andcfauc-.
tion bargains.
Our third and fourth grade
students have read an average of,
900 pages each during the month
of March, and the fifth and sixth
graders are working to keep up
with them. We emphasize reading
at Faith Christian, and even the
children in kindergarten are
encouraged to read with their par-
ents each evening..
April. has been declared
National Bedtime Story month. -
We urge you who are parents to
read to your children each night '
this month and establish a family
story time hour that will continue
throughout the year. there is no
greater gift that you can give your
children than the love of reading.
We would suggest a Bible story as
well as a favorite each night. Not
only does it promote good reading
habits, but it also fosters close
emotional and spiritual ties with
your children. I remember those
days with much pleasure.
"Easter Greetings" from all of
us at Faith Christian School. This
is the most profound-and the
most exciting-holiday for
Christians. God's love for us in
giving His Son for us in unfath-
omable.
Jesus said unto her, "I am the
resurrection and the life: he that
believeth in me, though he were
dead, yet .shall he live: And
whosoever liveth and believeth in
me shall never die. Believest thou

General Assembly- regarding .a
bylaw that has been proposed to,
create a more level playing field
for us smaller schools. He was
selected in December by the small
school leaders to chair this
process and now be the;
spokesperson. We'll keep you
informed of the results of this
undertaking. .
Cheerleading tryouts are set
for April 2 1st. That is a Saturday.
Practices are being held to pre-
pare the girls for the big event.
There is a sign-up in the office for
additional details.
Our spring sports are .'run-
ning full tilt. With games practi-
cally everyday. it is hard to give
an, update that does the teams
justice. However, softball, base-
ball, weight lifting, and track are
doing well. For example, last
Friday the boy's baseball team
defeated St. Joe at home on
Friday by a 13-3 score. Brandon
Jones sealed the game's outcome-
with a grand slam to invoke the
S10-run rule.
Meanwhile and at the same,
time, the girls were defeating,
Arnold High School by a score of:
16-1. Judith Husband was the
hitting and pitching star; howev-
er, obviously many other girls'
contributed on the offensive side.
of the game. It looks like we will'
have two weight lifters going to
the state meet as Chris Nelson
joins Ernest Williams as our qual-
ifiers.
Unofficially. we have heard
that Brandon Jones and Derrick

Brandon was selected as a guard
while Derrick was 'selected as a

Registration for next year's
classes and courses will take
place between April 23rd arid
27th. Students will receive very.
important information on this in
the near future. Please be on the
lookout for it. Take some time to
not only review classes for next
year; but discuss how those class-
es will best prepare him/her for a:
career or college. As we always
share at this time of year, backing
away from challenges in high
school will not look good to col-
leges. A high GPA without upper,
level classes is +practically mean-
ingless, especially if SAT or ACT
scores. do not match the high
GPA. Also, it costs money to take
remedial courses at college that!
would not be necessary if we tookI
quality courses here. And don't,
forget' to look at Florida.' High
School, the state's Internet cours-
es! ''
'We are working on next'year's
opportunities quite feverishly. If
you would like .to have input on
such, things as our handbook,,
course offerings, anid school cal-|

tact us so we might make you
aware of our meetings. Ouri
School Advisory Council meets'
later this month on the 25th ati

previously, please consider this as
your invitation to join us.
We are having a faculty hand-
book meeting on April 18 after
school; a faculty visionary meet-
ing at the Bayou from 3 to. 7 on
April 24; and we will have an open
Forum handbook meeting on Mayl
1st.
Hall of Fame ceremonies and
the announcement of Mr. and
Miss Wewahitchka High School

results next week.
Don't forget to join us for the

from 8:00 a.m. on Friday to 8:001
a.m. on Saturday. For heaven's
sake, if you cannot make it to the
event, please support it by your
donations and prayers.
A lot of progress is being
made in the fight against cancer,
and we all have the ability to help,
in some way. WHS is selling raffle
tickets for a weekend get-away to

U.S. Service Academy

Nomination Process


LU.S. Senator Bob Graham
began accepting requests for
nomination to the U.S. service
academies on April 1. The process
is open to students in their junior
year of high school, and will run
until the deadline on October 13.
Throughout his 14 years in
the U.S. Senate, Senator Graham
has committed to finding the best
and bnghtest of Florida's-young
men and women for nomination to
the academies.
"The U.S. Service Academies
have a long tradition of producing
some of this nation's finest citi- "
zens and leaders. If one were to
read aloud the academies' alumni
rosters, they might think they
were reading a Who's Who ol
American History. Many of those
names can be traced back to
Florida. whose students have,
gone on to serve honorably in the,
academies, and thereafter as sol-:
Sdiers, public servants, and leaders-
of every kind. I am positive that,/
the nominees for this year will
make our state just as proud,"
said Graham.
Students who receive an
appointment will enter one of the
four service academies in the
summer of 2002-the U.S. Air
Force Academy at Colorado'
Springs, Colorado; the U.S.
Merchant Marine Academy at
Kings Point, New York; the U.S.
Military Academy at West Point,
New York; or the U.S. Naval.
Academy at Annapolis, Maryland.
All requests for applications-
should be made to Jeannie Theafl
in Senator Graham's Tallahassee
office at 2252 Killearn Center i
Boulevard, 3rd Floor, Tallahassee,
FL 32308. The applications can
also be found online at http://
