Appeals Window Open for


FE MA Flood Map Changes


Cape San Bias and Indian
Pass residents need to know that
the clock is ticking. A 90 day win-
dow to appeal flood map changes
being proposed by FEMA is now
open.
These proposed changes have
been at the forefront of the minds
of property owners in the area
since they were initially intro-
duced just over two years ago. At
that time, approximately 70% of
the "C". flood zone property in
these areas was recommended to
be changed to a higher flood prob-
ability rating.
Over the past two years, Gulf
County and members, of the Gulf'
-County Coastal. Development
Association have carried the torch
in efforts to try and have these
first maps reviewed. During the
time span, Gulf agreed to the
flood map proposals In the
ret-ainder of the county while
they negotiated with FEMA over
the Cape and Indian Pass maps.
U.S. CongressmianAllen Boyd
set up a meeting with FEMA, Gulf
County, GCCDA, and staff mem-
bers. GCCDA president Ron
Morrow, local surveyor with
knowledge of elevation in thbse
areas, and member of the GCCDA
Sue Marley, and former Gulf
County Commission Warren
Yeager attended the meeting in
which FEMA agreed to review the
area.
The review has been complet-
ed and approximately half of the
original 70% that was changed
was returned to what is now "X"
zone: (the new equivalent of "C",
zone) rating.
"These changes have the
potential to greatly change peo-
ple's property values," said
Morrow.
Property owners have until
July 1st to file for the appeal or
accept the flood zone changes as
made by FEMA. If owners find
themselves in a higher risk flood


zone they could probably expect
to face much higher insurance
premiums, higher finance rate
changes. or difficulty in acquiring
a loan.

. '' -


Building Official Michael
Hammond and Chief Administrator
Don Butler review new maps.

This problem is magnified
because the area is In a CBRA
zone and government backed
insurance programs can't partici-
pate in the area.
Property. owners should not
wait until the last minute to begin
the. process of filing an appeal,
Morrow explained. It takes sever-
al days to develop the scientific or
technical data required to accom-
pany the appeal.
Property owners can view
maps at the Gulf County
Administrator's Office at 1000.
Cecil G. Costin, St. Boulevard
(phone 229-6111) or at the Gulf
County Library. Forms and other
information on how to follow the
appeals process can also be
picked up there.
The primary technical data
that can be used is an elevation


survey of the property. Morrow
said the average cost to challenge
a parcel will range around $250 to.
$300 for the survey work:.'
All. appeals must be filed by .
Gulf County, so property owners
must complete the data and turn
it in to the administrative office in
order to have them processed.
[See ad on page 3A of this issue
of The Star.]
The ultirrimate goal. of the
GCCDA is to challenge the CBRA
'designation in the area. The
group hopes to be in the process
of doing that by this fall, and tak- ,
ing their case to the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service.


Redistricting


Joint Workshop


Set for May 29th

During a redistricting work-
shop held by the Gulf County
School Board Monday,- board
members and County Commis-
sion Chairman Nathan Peters, Jr.
called for a joint workshop to be
held on the issue for Tuesday,
May 29th, at 6:00 p.m. in the Port
St. Joe High School Commons
Area.
School board members have
only just begun to analyze data
derived from the 2000 census,fig-
ures and looked at two scenarios
prepared by Gulf .County GIS

Penny Ford.
Board members seemed in
unison 'to desire to slow the

S EDITORIAL COMMENTARY i 0 /4 WI by Kesley Colbert
.' I\I K,,,


Let's Not


Be Uggie.!!

This redistricting stuff is getting more interesting every
day. Just a few weeks ago I scolded (gently) my three year old
grandson (Will) only to hsar him immediately respond .
"Paw Paw, you're being uggie."
Unfortunately, that seems to be the case with these coun-
ty redistricting.meetings. Hold on before you start that "at-a-
boy" and "you go get 'em!" stuff-there is enough stone
throwing on both sides of the issue now without me soliciting
any new hurlers. )
Now's the time for us all to sit back. take a deep breath,
and decide whether we want to search for reasonable solu-
tions to problems or bring further division to an already open
abyss.
.How does that ol' saying go "You can't please every-
body, but you should at least make it appear that you are try-
ing to."
Some of the first steps toward those efforts may be under
way since a public workshop between the Board of County
Commissioners and the Gulf County School Board has been
called for May 29th at 6:00 p.m., ET, in the Port St. Joe High
School Commons Area. Hopefully, this will be the beginning
of a coordinated effort to bring the two boards together in the
drawing of new district boundaries..
While attending the school board workshop Monday, I.was
reminded why school board member Linda Wood has always
been kind of special to me. Linda may not want anyone to
know this, but she taught me English-or, maybe I should say
she tried to teach me English-a few years ago.
English sure wasn't one of my favorite subjects then,'and
frankly, I'm not too concerned about it now. 'But, Linda Wood
made anr impression on me. as a young student that impacted
not only my academic course, but how I felt about myself
during those tough teenage years.
Come to think of it, I don't even know if I have, ever told
her all of this mushy stuff. "
Linda, once again, got my attention Monday' morning
when, she stated, "It's not right to base the 'whole county's
redistricting on one person's desire to run for re-election."
Of course, she made a few additional points when she
explained her desire, at least at this time, was to seek re-elec-
tion, but it wouldn't be fair to split her precinct just to match
her personal desires.
I got the definite impression she was sitting on the school
board for one purpose-to serve the citizens of Gulf County to
the best of her abilities-regardless of whether she might get
re-elected.
I'm certainly not saying that any of the other members on
either board does not have equally admirable traits, but
Rather that I was impressed with her statements and focus,to
service. ,.
I hope that as this process 'proceeds, we'll all be mature
enough-to not be "uggie". and communicate our ideasand dif-,
ferences professionally, while being open minded to ideas and
-:, suggestions -from-all sides of the table. We also need to be
patient enough to allow all parties time to reason and work
through this process: There is no .hurry to get the. process
completed, and efforts to rush redistricting only raises suspi-
cions about motives for rushing a plan through.


Boy, I tell you, it's tough being
a Christian in this country today. -
Ask Jane Fonda. The minute
she announces that she has seen
the light, her extra-rich husband
shows her the door. 'Course, it

way at all. Maybe she looked
around and determined that all
the money in the world couldn't
buy what she really needed.
It is amazing how the peace
that passes all understanding can
find you aL a Braves game or in the
middle of an exercise tape or at a,
CNN news briefing or jetting out to
Colorado to check on your buf-'
faloes .
It's just as amazing to me that
some can hear and keep on chop-


ping to the same old beat.
Ask Charlie \\'ard. You remem-
ber Charlie. The Heisman Trophy
winner from Flonda State is now
playing basketball with the New
York Knicks. It seems that in a
news magazine article he was
quoted as saying the Jews that
persecuted Jesus were stubborn.
Apparently, he made this state-,
ment in a pre-game Bible study
class, in a question and answer
period involving some Old and New
Testament customs and rituals.,


My grandfather was the most
stubborn man that ever lived. He
was also the wisest, the fairest. the
nicest, the finest . I['e never
thought of "stubborn" as being all
that bad. When someone is trying
to get you to jump off the cliff
against your better judgment-a
little stubbornness might even be
an admirable trait..
NBA commissioner David
Stern condemned Ward's religious
"zealotry" as being "intolerant-and
divisive." The New York fans booed
his appearance atMadison Square
Garden. The iron. abounds 'here!
Charlie Ward is one of the nicest
people that I have ever met. He
would cut oft his hand before he
would offend anyone. Yet, he is the
one who has spent several days
and. I bet, some sleepless nights,
agonizing and apologizing over this
thing.. ;
Let's ponder on the whilel"
picture for a moment . Charlie
Ward says someone is stubborn. A
bunch of people. led by a high prb-
file major sports commissioner,
say that Charlie Ward is intolerant,
divisive, and a zealot. "Stubbornh'
is condemned. "Zealot," "divisive,"
and intolerant" is o.k. Do you mind
if I take a second here to be'on:
fused?
Doesn't someone owe Charlie
an apology for calling him names?
If you are a Christian, are you
just fair game?
Ask the guy who writes B.-C;.
He throws in his comic strip from
time to time certain Christ-like
ideas, pnnciples. sayings arid/oi
images. I think they are amusing,
entertaining, poignant 'anid
instructive. Kinda like a parable:
Some of the newspapers in
Chicago don't see it exactly the
same way. They dropped his strip
from their dailies. I didn't catch
their exact objections. But you can
bet they threw in the usual about
"being offensive, objectionablee,"
"not in the best interest," anid of
course, the ever popular "zealotry"
would have topped the list. .
It's going to be interesting dne
day .... when it turns out that'B.
C. and Thor and Anno were a lot
smarter than some folks are giving
them credit for. I bet the
Jerusalem Free-Press in 33 AD
didn't run their strip either. .

Redistricting Isn't Something New-Populati


REDISTRICTING OF the
county Is before us again; we
.say "us" because the entire
county is affected. That means
each and everyone of us as cit-
izens; ..
It, .It also means the districts
must take into consideration
the political district,, as well,
but not be. the primary focus. .
I remember one time of
redistricting the commission-
ers thought primarily of their
own district configuration, so
as not to stick the individual.
commissioners with a group of
people they didn't serve in the
last configuration of the coun-
'tY.
Let's:recognize that the dis-
tricts are primarily.for.the peo-
ple to know where to vote and
which commissioner is
assigned, to which district.


There's rno.other cause for the
individual districts.

ONE OF THE BIGargui-
ments in the currefit redistrict-
ing is whether or not to include
prison inmates in. the popula--
tion count. 'Each district is
supposed., to have the same
number of citizens living in--
and represented by the individ-
ual commissioners--was 'the
next district.
. To be fair, a. count should
be taken of the country citizens:
and divided by five.


:If you 'do it this-, vav. Gulf
County will, wind lup with five
even districts---the ideal situa-.
tion. it
.Take into consideration, if
you, will, that no prisoners in
the state institutions in our
borders. makes his home in
Gulf County.. They all beside
pernianeritly somewhere else.'
SNone of them pay taxes. or
vote in Gulf County.
':.lTherefore, they are not citi-
zens, of Gulf County and
should not be counted as such.
Besides, they are transiexit!


When their sentence is com-.
plete, they will return to where
they came from and no longer
can even remotely be consid-
ered a permanent resident of
the county.

ONE time we redistricted
the county, the late Bob Ellzey
and I rode through the county,
counting every resident in
order to evenly divide the pop-
ulation, between the five dis-
tricts.
Now redistricting is based
upon the U. S. Census figures,
and the counting is already
done and computerized.
Under the law, each district
is supposed to contain close to
the same number of citizens.
That's the purpose of redis-
tricting.
Why redistrict in the first


,place?. ,
To give each citizen equal
representation.
Redistricting is for the citi-
zens, not the politicians. To be
.absolutely fair,, the new dis-
tricts should be set by the citi-
zens and the politicians have
nothing to do with it.
Unfortunately, it's the
other way around!.

REMEMBER, THE
COURTS did the redistricting
on a state and national level.
Who are the courts? They
represent the citizens.
The public can express
themselves on the matter in
public, hearings. The county
commissioners should not
have the last word concerning
redistricting! .
This is one exercise -:in


on Shifts

which the will of the people
should be considered.
The individual commjs-
sioners can present their ide4s
about the districts to sft
themselves if they want
They are close to the situati
and have some good ideas, 1:
they should listen to an unb-
ased citizen board. .
If we set out our districtsit6
satisfy the individual comm=
sioners and not disturb his
individual constituency, we
had just as well leave the di-,
tricts as they presently are. I

WE REALIZE each indivil i
ual commissioner wants :
:protect his own particular d&
strict, but remember, the dil~
tricts are for.the people,
the politicians.

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY. MAY 3. 2001


"Law Day" Held In Old Courtroom


The sixth grade students from
Port St. Joe Middle and
Wewahitchka Elementary Schools
were special guests at the "Law
Day" program held in the court-
room of the refurbished old
Wewahitchka Courthouse
Tuesday morning.
Gulf County Judge Fred
Witten brought the program
together and used the old court-
room setting to bring part of the
history of Gulf County and the old
courthouse back to life.
Former Gulf County Clerk of
the Court and local historian
George Core presented that histo-
ry. He got much of it straight from

Money was borrowed from the

bonds were issued.
Core explained that much of
this groundwork was done in
secret with folks from St. Joe and
Wewa going to the legislature and
requesting to be split from
Calhoun County.
He shared that some of the
rivalry between the north and
south ends of the county may
have started about that time.
Folks from St. Joe and Wewa sub-
mitted a list of names for the var-
ious governmental appointments
to be made by the governor.
It turns out that every officer
selected was from Wewa and the
St. Joe folks wanted to knowhow
that happened. Core said they
were told that the list from St. Joe
came in late and the Wewa list
was already on the piece of paper,
and the governor ran out of offi-
cers before he got down to the St.
Joe list.
The courthouse was complet-;

h Annual Tour of Historic Homes


The 10th Annual Apalachicola
Tour of Historic Homes will take
place Saturday,' May 5,th in this,
scenic seaport town on the
"Forgotten Coast." Sponsored by
Trinity Episcopal Church. the
tour will showcase 1 1 private
homes and foui' historic
churches, all of which will be open
to visitors from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
ET. ...
New 'homes as well as
favorites from previous years will
be open for the event. All proceeds
from the tour go to the preserva-
tion and restoration fund of the
164-year-old Trinity Church,
which will also be open for visitors
throughout the day.
Registration for the tour
begins at 11 a.m. ET at Trinity
Episcopal Church, at the intersec-
tion of Highway 98 and 6th Street
in Apalachicola. The ticket dona-
tion for the event is $10 per per-
son. A delicious boxed lunch
prepared by Trinity's Episcopal
Church Women is also available
in the church parish hall from
11:30 to 1:00 for an additional
charge of $8.
The Trinity Church Rectory,
also known ;as the George
Marshall House after its builder,
has just undergone extensive
restoration and will be a featured
home on' this year's tour. This
turn of the century Queen Anne
style home has been the residence
of the Tnnity's ministers and their
families for: over a century. Its
lovely woodwork, unique corner
fireplaces and handsome stairway
have been carefully restored to
their original beauty.
The Wingate House on Bay
Avenue is new to the Tour of
Homes this year. Built around,
1910, this handsome yellow bun-
galow facing Apalachicola Bay has
been restored and renovated by,
Arlene and David Wingate- of
Tallahassee. Its "' wide, semi-
enclosed porch has-large, arched
open windows and is an excellent
example of the vernacular archi-
tecture of the area.
A favorite tour showplace is
the Whiteside/Bickel Home. The
prairie style of this house is .seen
in its broad windows, wood shin-
gle siding, board and batten wain-
scoting, and built-in cabinetry.
Restored during the mid- 1990s, it
is the residence of noted photo-
journalist Richard Bickel and his
T


wife Susan.
Also new this year is the
Marks/Clark Home. considered
one of the oldest homes in
Apalachicola. Originally built in
Port St. Joe in the early 1800s. it
is believed to be constructed of
wood from an English ship that
landed there in the late eighteenth
century. The house was moved
from its original site to
'Apalachicola in 1845 following a
yellow fever epidemic and deadly
hurricane in Port St. Joe. The
house again survived destruction
during Apalachicola's destructive
1900 fire, but charred beams from
this fire can still be seen in the
attic of the home.
Another new attraction this

FALSE REPORT CAUSED A
SCRAMBLE
*Twenty-six year old Amanda
Willman, who resides at 215
Eighth Street in Port St. Joe, was
arrested Tuesday morning after
sending area law enforcement
officers in somewhat of a frenzy
for over an hour..
Willman reported she was sit-
ting in a vehicle on Atlantic Street
in Port St. Joe Beach when a
white male forced her out of the,
vehicle at gunpoint. Willman stat-
ed she was then dragged down
the road into a wooded area where
the male subject told her he was
going to kill her.
Willman stated that when a
friend started yelling for her, the
subject let her go and ran away.
Willman provided officers
with a description of the alleged'
suspect, .as well as, a .vehicle
deschption. All available officers
were called in to assist, as well as
suri-ouriding cities' and counties'
officers. Bay County was also
requested to sent their helicopter
to assist. in the search for the sus-
pect.
After an intense search of the
area. officers decided to question
Willman again. She was then told
that there was a security camera
in the parking lot where the inci-
dent reportedly happened, and
officers were going to view it for
additional clues. (There was no
camera.)
At that point, Willman stated
that she had made up the story
because she couldn't get anyone
to listen to her. She had reported
to a bus driver earlier in the day
that a strange vehicle had been
watching her daughter at the bus
stop.

McArdle said that no dioxin
was found during the -cooperative
study of the waters of St. Joseph
Bay and fish tissue samples. He
also said the city has been
required to test the effluent from
the city's wastewater treatment
plant for the past 10 years. and
that dioxin has never been found.
(2, 3, 7, 8 TCDD) Dioxin is
measured in parts per trillion and
considered to be a very dangerous
carcinogenic.

Here's a glass. It's filled with
water.
I hit it. What splashes out?
Water. Why? Because water is
on the inside.
When you're hit by an unkind
word or a cruel deed, what
splashes out anger or love?
If your heart's filled with anger,
out will come anger. If it's filled
with love, out will come love.
Wouldn't you rather have the
love of God come out? Then you
must have the God of love in your
heart.
A girl was unjustly scolded, but
out came love. "What's the
secret?" asked a friend.
"Jesus fills my. heart," she
explained, "and everything comes
out right."
Does Jesus fill your heart?

Shark Track and Field Wins


With their best performance
to date the Port St. Joe boys' track
team journeyed to Tallahassee for
the Region 1-A championships
and came home regional champs.
Early in the meet the Sharks let
everyone know they came to win,
with Travis Woullard winning' the |
discus and Tremaine Lewis finish-.
ing second, ,,and then Travis and
Tremaine repeating their perfor-
mance in the shot-put with a one-'
two finish.
The Sharks took the lead and
never looked back. The tracksters,
continued their season long dom-
ination of the field events with
Steve Gaddis winning the pole,
vault, and Josh Todd finishing
fourth. Kyron Bailey finished see-'
and in both the high jump and.
triple jump. At the conclusion of
the sixfield events, the field event
team had accumulated 69
points-,a total that would be sur-
passed for the entire meet by only,
1 two of the other 25 teams compet-
ing with 10 running events yet to
be run.
The .running preliminaries
-saw the Sharks at their best, as
they won each heat they were
involved in; a sign of things to
come. Highlighting the running

although brushing removes some of

gum, it did not get it all BETWEEN

into these areas to remove bacteria..,
Brushing won't. That's why flossing is
so important.

A Comet
by: Paula Clark
She waltzed into our lives like
a fresh cool breeze from the north.
Southern born and raised, she felt
a call to come south again for a
"vacation." She arrived Sunday
night after a two-day drive.
Monday, all three of us worked a
full day sorting, moving, cleaning,
and preparing hei work area. She
was going to bend neon on the old
Port Theatre's stage
We found her on the internet.
After buying neon equipment to
bend and bombard glass, we
spent two months moving,
arranging, and installing. Every
spare minute was claimed by
neon. I began to dream of break-
ing neon glass! One day of work-
ing -with the equipment was
enough to convince Wade that he
wanted an expert for the job (or
needed training). We researched.
schooling a little bit and decided it
was not an option for us due to
our current schedules (sometimes
50+ hour weeks).
it occurred to us that a neon
school might be a good place to
look for someone who could
restore the neon. Also, a school
would know someone looking to
buy their own equipment. I wrote
letters to every neon bending
school I could find on the net.


THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, MAY 3, 2001 PAGE 1B



of Progress Brings Light to the Port Theatre


Wade made calls. We researched
theatre restorations. Months later,
we still hadn't found the right sit-
uation. We had been told our
equipment ought to be worth a
fair bit more than we paid for it.
Being patient, we kept trying. I
found a company called Savage
Neon on the net. The sign on the
website was impressive: it looked
like a medical sign of the human
body with elegantly real-looking
muscles. I sent an e-mail of
inquiry, explaining our situation
and describing our equipment as
best I could.
One day, an e-mail blipped
onto my screen! A cheerful, light-
hearted answer and inquiry. All
told, there were probably 50 e-
nmails back and forth. Questions
about electrodes, colors, sizes,
conditions of various parts of the
marquis, paint, timing, schedules,
goals, hopes, descriptions of the
equipment, size of glass and more
flew back and forth.
It was decided that due to one
previous postponement (in
December), we would proceed in
spite of the fact that we were
behind in our preparations. I was
embarrassed that we weren't
more prepared. Our first day of'


working together, I was thankful
that Haley had vision! We had
intended to get her work area
more workable BEFORE her
arrival. It had been two years
since Wade had used the equip-
ment (for one day) and it wasn't
the most desirable spot to unveil
and offer as a workspace. Wade
was just getting over bronchitis,
so he hadn't had a chance to com-
plete his planned preparations,
and I had absolutely no clue
where to start or what to do!
Even more embarrassing, we
discovered that first day that we


had hauled and stored a dump-
ster full of neon glass that was
"trash". Perhaps if Wade had pur-
sued the art, he might have used
,some of it for "practice" glass.
However, that first day we mostly
spent cleaning out unuseable
glass to make room to work. Wade
compressed and crushed and I
wondered if the City could even
pick up the dumpster to empty it!
Once again the City impressed me
with their ability to haul off an
amazing amount.
What a relief to free up more
space on the stage! By late


Paula Clark, Haley, and Wade Clark are shown in front of the
newly lit neon lights of the Port Theatre.


Tuesday, Haley was bending
glass. By Wednesday, we had our
first load (6 individual signs that
included the letters to spell
THAT of THEATRE) ready to
drive to Panama City to get them
bombarded!
We had originally intended to
bombard (fill) on site but due to
the electrical installation that
would be required, and the time
involved in the entire project, it
made more sense to pay someone
in Panama City to fill the tubes
with neon. What a thrill to see the
THEAT lit up in Jim's shop on
Thursday! At the same time, I
delivered the RE of THEATRE and
PORT for bombarding. All week,
Haley and Wade drew :various
drawings, climbing up and down
ladders, measuring, consulting,
checking. Their goal? To make the
signs as close to the original as
possible. We had previously prior-
ity mailed pieces from the mar-
quis to Haley before her trip down
so she could test for color and see
parts of the original. She brought
supplies, a cheerful attitude and a
strong work ethic.
When we took Haley's glass
letters to Panama City, they drew
admiration for their precision and
quality. I had felt peace all along
about our decision to. work


and pick up glass. On Saturday,
Haley started at 7:30 a.m. and
worked until after 10 p.m. She
was up again Sunday morning
early to complete two small neon
signs for our twins who are grad-
uating this weekend from FAMU.
In the time Haley was here,
she fixed us lunch, walked our
dog, and was willing to help when
and where needed. She made an
easy houseguest Her proclama-
tion that she was "low mainte-
nance" was correct. It was fun! We
felt an easy friendship in the pro-
ject and had a tough time sending
her on her way. Along the way,
she even found folks who tried to
talk her into coming back to live!
Wade had the idea that she could
develop a specialty of restoring
theatre neon. I can't wait to see all
her beautiful signs lit upl
Wade has a lot of painting and
additional preparation to go.
Lighting up the PORT sign was an
accomplishment, though he still
needs to do some work to make
even that installation permanent.
Wiring, repair, and additional
paint are in the plans. Our first
quote for restoring the marquis
came in at $10,000 3 years ago for
minimal and $30,000 for maximal
(including reader board and addi-
tional signage). We will have it fin-


Haley shapes glass tubing into the proper shape to form letters:


together, but it was great confir-
mation to hear someone in the
business affirm her excellence in
ability! I .thought, ilokinig at her
finished work, her glass bending
looked precise, clean and neat.
Wonderfully, she liked the equip-
ment. Amlazingly, she wasn't get-
tihg the equipment for herself.
She gave of her time to relight our
town so that she could bring the
equipment home to a friend who
would use it in the basement for
home neon hobby bending. I think
she also liked the idea of being
involved in our project! She
spends most :of her time teaching
and doesn't have time to involve
herself in larger projects very
often.
Haley worked fairly long
hours all week. We' helped any
way we could, though my way to
help was to fill in for Wade and
make two trips to PC to deliver


ished for less than that amount,
with a lot of labor thrown in for
good measure.'
It was SO worth it this week-
end, though. We sat across the
street and just looked at it. It has
been fun to watch, people's reac-
tions to seeing it alive again.
PORT: I. think of a lot of things
about that word. That was the
most'important word to me to see
restored and it was tip and lit
before Haley returned home.
Haley climbed up and helped
Wade install it. Her vision and our
vision for the building merged and
we were all rewarded with a feel-
ing of success and accomplish-
ment.
From the day we have
"owned" the building, if has felt
somewhat like it has actually
"owned" ius. Now, though, it is

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, MAY 3, 2001 PAGE 3B


SGA Students Attend Anual Convention


Recently, several members of
Port St. Joe High School's student
government attended the annual
Florida Association of Student
Councils' convention in Wdst Palm
Beach. Representing PSJHS were
Susan Ellmer, John Patrick Floyd,
Katie Geoghagan, Rachel Geog-
hagan, Maclain Howse, All
McKeithen, Carla Money,
Kimberly Pickett and their advi-
sor, Rodney Herring.
This year's conference hosted
600 students from 150 Florida
schools of every size and descrip-
tion, from Key West to Pensacola.
Every year, all delegates par-
ticipate in a community service
project and this convention spon-
sored a "Read to Lead" program
where each student attending the
convention donated a children's
book for a local school classroom.
Delegates were bused to schools
all over Palm Beach County where
they read to and mentored ele-
mentary-aged children.
One of the sessions of the
convention featured the consider-
ation of resolutions that.had been
approved within each of the
state's six student council dis-
q) tricts. District One offered a reso-
ltion that had been drafted by
Port St. Joe High School, which
Would limit participation by pri-
vate schools in post-season ath-,
letic competition. John-Patrick
Floyd read the resolution and led
the pro discussion during ,the
debate. While the con forces were
well organized and prepared.


Floyd did a masterful job of coun-
tering their arguments and .the
measure was ultimately approved
by a narrow margin. Theoretically,
the resolutions go from the con-
vention to the Florida legislature.
Workshops were presented by
schools from all over the state,
and the St. Joe delegation picked
up numerous ideas to implement
during its next school year.
Not everything was work,
however. The student council
members were inspired by a num-
ber of motivational and informa-
tive speeches. They were moved
by an ensemble of handicapped
students, which used music and
sign language to deliver a power-'
ful message. Highlighting an
evening of activities at Santaluces
High. School, the delegates were
entertained by a renowned hypno-
tist, who used his powers to per-
suade a large number of the
delegates to fill a gymnasium with
spirited laughter.
During their final night, the
Port St. Joe High School delega-
,tion attended a banquet, heard
from the speech contest winners,
and helped recognize the new dis-
trict and state officers. Katie
Geoghagan and Maclain Howse
took part in a candle-lighting cer-
emony where all of the past offi-
cers extinguished their candles
after passing the, torch to their
successors. Katie and Maclain will
be, co-presiden,ts of District One
for the 2001-2002 school year.

The College board's SAT 1:
Reasoning Test. and the American
College Testing Program's ACT
Assessment (ACT), originally
designed for college-bound high
school students, are used for the
TIP Talent Search to measure the
verbal. mathematical, and general
reasoning ability of highly able
seventh graders. While far too dif-
ficult to the average seventh grad-
er. these tests have shown to be
helpful in discriminaine, the abil--

Port St. Joe Middle School
had 12 seventh grade students
who met all the eligibility require-
ments and participated in this
program. These students took the
SAT or ACT Assessment in
October and December of 2000.
These students had some very
impressive scores on this test. We
had many students score as well

SWAT Goes Global to Expose Big Tobacco


SWAT members at Port St. Joe High School are shown work-
ing on the "SWAT Without Borders" project. They are in the
process of establishing contact with youth from Austria to deter-
mine tobacco practices in their country. Pictured, from left, are
Rachel Bixler, Brittany Alford, and Ali McKeithen.


Students Working Against
Tobacco in Gulf County are reach-
ing out to teens in other countries
in an effort to raise awareness
about Big Tobacco's dirty little
secret-often unregulated
international tobacco marketing
practices that entice children,
youth and women into tobacco
use.
Some of the marketing prac-
tices now banned in the U.S. are
used all over the world. As a
result, tobacco use is growing at
alarming rates worldwide. The
World Health Organization (WHO)
estimates that tobacco use will
,kill 10, million people annually by
2030.
"We've had success showing
teens in Florida how they have
been targeted by Big Tobacco,"
said Sabrina Burke, Gulf County,


Tobacco Prevention Coordinator.
"Now, SWAT members from across
the state are going to reach out to
their peers in other countries to
help them fight this onslaught of
manipulation."
For the next three months,
SWAT members in each of
Florida's 67 counties will commu-
nicate with youth in a selected
partner country to learn about
tobacco advertising, the country's
inhabitants, language and cul-
ture. Gulf County SWAT has
partnered with Austria, and are
currently in the process of search-
ing the Internet and establishing
communication with Austrian
youth to learn about tobacco
practices in their country.
Through this global outreach,
SWAT hopes to set up an interna-


"Truth" Urges Tobacco Co. Workers to Quit


Florida's anti-tobacco "tiuth"
campaign is urging tobacco com-
pany workers to quit their jobs.
The "truth" campaign took out
full-page ads directed at tobacco
company workers in newspapers
distributed where Philip Morris
Inc., R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co.
and Brown and Williamson
Tobacco Corp. have corporate
offices or manufacturing facilities:
Charlotte, North Carolina,
Louisville, Kentucky, New York
and Richmond, Virginia. The ads
were, placed in Charlotte's
Creative Loafing weekly, The
(Louisville) Courier-Journal, the
national edition of The New York
Times and the Richmond Times-
Dispatch.
The "truth" campaign is
funded through the state's ,$13
billion settlement with the tobacco
industry and is administered by
the Florida Department of Health.
The ads, costing nearly
$130,000.00, incorporated Take
Our Daughters to Work Day,
which was this past Thursday.
The ad's headline read, "On
Take Your Daughter to Work Day,
Would You?" The copy read as fol-
lows, "Today 3,000 young people
will start smoking. 1,200 people
FHP License and
Vehicle Checkpoints
The Florida Highway Patrol
will b- conducting driver license
and vehicle inspection check-
points from May 4th through 10th
on SR-71 near CR-275, SR-22
near the Bay County line, and SR-
71 near Trailer City.
Recognizing the danger pre-
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on vehi-
cles being operated with defects
such as bad brakes, worn tires
and defective lighting equipment.
In addition. -attention will be
-directed to drivers who would vio-
late the driver license laws of
Florida.
The patrol has found these
checkpoints to be an -effective
means of enforcing the equipment
and driver license laws of Florida
ensuring the protection of all
motorists.

will die from tobacco. And some-
one, -somewhere will decide
they've had enough of working for
the tobacco industry. We'd like to
make sure it's a decision that
doesn't go unnoticed. So if you're
out there, please call 1 (866) 929-
9222, and let your daughter see
you for what you really are. A
hero." The ad showed an image of
a worker on a cigarette. assembly
line.
Also, classified ads are run-
ning during a four-week period in
the same newspapers in an addi-
tional effort to recruit ex-tobacco
employees or current employees
who may want to quit. The classi-
fied ads read as follows: "A'ITEN-
TION CURRENT / FORMER


TOBACCO EMPLOYEES. There's
something admirable, about, a
tobacco employee switching to a
new line of work. We feel it's a
decision that shouldn't go unno-
ticed. Call us today at 1 (866) 929-
9222. Because you're not just
making an exit. You're making a
stand."
Frank Penela with the Florida
Division of Health Awareness and
Tobacco commented about the
campaign, "Our current mission
is to seek out tobacco employees
who are unhappy with the way
their companies operate or simply
feel that what they are doing is
wrong. We'd like to give them a
chance to speak up. If they work
for a tobacco company or recently


quit, we are asking that they get
involved. Whether it's speaking at
a Teen Summit, participating in
our advertising efforts, or just
sharing their letter of resignation
with teens in a TV spot, we want
to let them know that we recog-
nize the sacrifice that they would
be making if they quit their jobs."
Since Florida reached its set-
tlement with the tobacco industry
in 1997, the "truth" campaign has
,run a series of edgy, humorous
television commercials poking fun,
at tobacco companies and their
executives. These commercials
have been highly popular with
teens and are credited with help-
ing to reduce teen smoking in
Florida.


tional SWAT network to keep up'
the fight. "We're continuing to
unite this generation worldwide,"
added Burke. "Cultures may be
different, but people need to know
that suffering from the lies of the
tobacco industry is a condition we
all share."
SWAT will culminate its cam-
paign in June at the Teen Tobacco
Summit 4 in Orlando, in which an
international tobacco marketing
guideline report will be presented
to 'tobacco companies with the
data gathered from each country.
With this, SWAT will push for ani
agreement to limit tobacco adver-
tising from the major tobacco cor-
porations and use tobacco-related


testimony from youth around the
world to demonstrate SWAT's sup-'
port on a world-wide scale.
SWAT is a youth led anti-
tobacco advocacy group with
more than 15,000 members
statewide as part of the Florida
Department of Health Initiative
funded from the $13 billion settle-
ment reached with tobacco com-
panies in 1997.

company president and CEO
Chuck Homier. Instead of build-
ing and operating "bricks and
mortar" sites at a limited number
of locales, Homier figured out,
almost by accident, that he could
take his shows on the road and
eliminate the cost of expensive
overhead. i
"Our concept is to eliminated
the middle man, and then" pass
those savings directly to the con-
sumer," says Homier. "As an
added bonus, the mobile mer-
chandising concept insures that
everyone throughout the country,,
at one time or, another, has a
chance to share in the Homier
savings."
Homier says that the excite-
ment created by a Homier sales
event brings people back year
after year. "Our concept is innov-
ative, and people tend to get excit-
ed about new and innovative
things. It's our job to keep them
excited, and I think our .pricing
and the constantly new and evolv-
ing line of quality products does
exactly that."
The Homier motto is simple,
"We are absolutely, positively
devoted to having the lowest.
prices in the nation, the company
strives 'to be at least 30 percent
below market price. Just as
importantly, quality is never sac-
rificed for pricing. .
"We want a dramatic savings
for the customer, while at the
same time guaranteeing 100 per-
cent product satisfaction. Great
prices,, superior quality-That's
our goal," adds Homier.
'On average, Homier holds
more than 60 sales events per
week, 50 weeks a year. At. any
given time, Homier has more than
50 tractor-trailers and-24 sales
and service crews criss-crossinga
the highways of America.
