last Thursday morning visiting
with area. residents at the Gulf

opened their makeshift offices for
All total, 51 people got the
opportunity to spend a few min-

lieutenant governor and share
what was on their minds.
But, the governor and lieu-
tenant governor were not the only
visitors to the area. News media
from as far away as England were
flanking the governor's entourage
as they arrived, and shadowed
their every move throughout the
course of the visit.
Subject matter during the
morning ranged from discussions
about the proposed tri-county
agricultural center and funding to
complete those- plans to local eco-
nomic development needs.
During a press conference
after the "Office Hours" Governor
Bush said the meetings were very
beneficial to him and his staff. He
described the morning's visitors
as excited and concerned people.

I! "Right Now" Is Important Too!
I SawSem Both
Governor Jeb Bush and Lt. Governor Frank Brogan made
their way to .Gulf County last Thursday and 51 people got the
opportunity to sit down one-on-one with one or the other and
spend a few minutes talking about whatever was on their mind.
"Governor's Office Days"-what a great way to gel in touch
with the heartbeat of what's going on in the minds of your con-
stituents. Both the governor and- lieutenant governor made
themselves about as available as the state's two top ranking offi-
cials possibly could during this morning long opportunity."
There was a lot of "press" following the governor around on
this day. There was this one incident where the governor's staff
paid me the highest compliment possible while we were outside
the governor's assigned "Office Days" room.
"Sir, this area is reserved for the governor's staff and press"-
". you're going to have to step back behind here," she said.
"HalleliLjah!!!r' I yelled inside my mind, as I recognized that
she had not confused me for those other media people. If fact, I
didn't even look as if I belonged with them..
That's not to say there's. anything wrong with most media
representatives, but it was really nice to know I didn't look like a
real newspaper reporter.
There was this one reporter who was either from England or
she had some kind- of bad speech impediment. This young lady
had obviously crossed the big pond with one purpose in mind-
"print a negative story on the governor."
She spent her whole morning interviewing people and
attempting to lure them into a negative statement about the gov-
ernor, his administration or his policy. Several folks I talked with
said the reporter cut them off and found someone else to inter-
view just as soon as she realized they were not going to take the
Obviously, she was missing the real story of the day.
I was privileged to have gotten the opportunity to meet with
Lt. Gov. Brogan for several minutes: The thing that impressed me
most about him was that he was quite familiar with our county,
its concerns and our needs.
He had also visited the museum and was familiar with the
surrounding-history and the fact that we are the signing place of
Most everyone knows the state is in the process of helping
renovate the Centennial Building-built in 1938 for the centen-
nial celebration of the signing of Florida's constitution. Several
local citizens'have been hoping to have another celebration when
the building is complete.
I did take advantage of the opportunity to suggest that -the
governor and lieutenant governor would look real fine "maybe"
next Independence Day (July 4th) dressed in the same attire as
those replicas in the museum are wearing and-"let's have
another signing celebration when the building is refurbished
next year." ,
If you don't ask, you'll never know. Both the governor and
lieutenant governor seemed interested in the idea. ,
I did. get the opportunity to speak very briefly to the governor
as he and Representative Bev Kilmer took time out for a photo op
in front of the constitution monument, next to the museum..
I felt like I told him the most important thing that this com-
munity had to say,based upon the fact that I onrily had time to get
in one sentente-'Thanks for everything you've: done for Gulf
County over the past few years, governor, there is no way we
could have ever recovered to the point we're at now Awithout our
heartfelt help and concern for the people/of this community."
I have always wanted to give a,
speech to a graduating .class.-
There is so much to tell those'
young people. And a whole lot we
don't need to bother them with!
The first thing that I wouldn't
tell them is that line about 'you
are the future leaders of tomor-
row." I'd skip that one for trwo rea-
sons. Listen, I still remember well
the night I graduated from high
school. Mr. W. 0. Warren. a long
time noted educator in our neck of
the woods, got up and right off
reminded us over and over that
one day we "would .be the future

toward Hollis Mayo and Larry
Ridinger, and figured if Mr. Warren
was right it scared the day-

know it could be in a heap of trou-
The second thing that bothers.
me about that line is these gradu-
ates ought to have learned a little
something along the way. And if
they .are not smart enough and
mature enough to realize that all
those old folks up on the platform
are headed toward the Geritol sun-
set,. .., then nothing you could
say is going to alert them to the
realities of life.
I would try to avoid too many
absurdities. Mr. Warren talked
about putting men on the moon
and wnst watches with built-in
telephones and televisions in every
home if he kept going he'd be
into the "visions of sugar plums"
pretty soon ..
I was thinking future as he
spoke. But the future to me on
that night was whether or not the
pajama factory was hiring any
summer help on Monday. All those
"career opportunities" he was out-
lining inri space engineering, 'om-'
puter technology and natural 'sci
ences sounded like something out
of Buck Rodgers to me.
Graduation time can be a little
imposing. You clearly understaird
all that future leader stuff. You
just don't want to start right novw!

Redistricting Workshop Held
County Commission and School Board Hear Issues
Gulf County commissioners,
Gulf County School Board mem-
bers, and local residents partici-
pated in a public workshop on
redistricting Tuesday evening at
the Port St. Joe High School
In a nutshell, the two boards
and the public 'were told that the
two boards' attorneys (Tim
McFarland, county, and Charles
Costin, school board) have written
the: Florida Attorney General's
Office seeking a written! opinion
as to whether or not they should
include prison population num-
bers in redistricting efforts.
Both attorneys said they had
spoken with the State Attorney
General's Office and they expect
to receive a formal written opinion,
fairly quickly. Attorney McFar-
land said his conversations had
included an informal verbal opin-
ion that suggests the prison num-
bers" should be included when
Needless to say, the question
concerning prisoner counts inclu-
sion in redistricting numbers is
op.ne that must be resolved before
new lines can be drawn. The
county recently voted not to
include inmate numbers in redis-
tricting considerations by a 3-2
vote. Commissioners Billy Traylor
arid Carmen McLemore voted
against the motion which was
made by Commissioner Carl Fox,
and supported by Commissioners
The Downtown Redevelop-
ment Agency will hold its monthly
meeting on Tuesday, June 12th,
at'6:15 p.m., ET. The meeting will
be held at Preble-Rish, Inc., locat-
ed at 401 Reid Avenue in Port St.
Joe. All members are urged to
Jerry Barnes and Chairman
Nathan Peters, Jr.
Both Traylor and McLemore
said the board should wait until it
hears from the State Attorney
General before deciding not to
Regardless of what the
Attorney General rules, the ques-
tion could continue to be an
issue. As .the attorneys pointed
out;, there is no case law on this
School Board Attorney
Charles Costin also noted that the
question is complicated further by
the fact that unique circum-
stances exist in small counties
because prison counts represent
a disproportionate number of res-
idents in the district that have a
large population of prisoners.
School Board chairman Mary
Pridgeon said school board mem-
bers are in general agreement not
to include pnsoner counts in their
'planning for that reason ."It
makes no sense to include prison-
ers," she said.
Members from the public that
spoke agreed that prisoners
should not be included regardless
of what the Attorney General
says. Indeed, the board does not
have to follow the Attorney
General's opinion whichever way
he recommends, as verified by
Benny Roberts told the
boards, "Mr. Butterworth
(Attorney General) doesn't have
the last word in this." He went on
to say that prisoners should 'not
be counted, and the question,
should be challenged, in court
before the county accepts inmate
Commissioner Billy Traylor
pointed out that Gulf was hot the
onrily county with this question
before it. In fact, Calhoun,
Franklin, and Liberty counties all
have significant prison popula-
tions and will be tackling this
Commissioner Carl Fox asked
the county attorney what would
happen if Gulf didn't abide by the
Attorney: General's opinion.
McFarland said, "Nothing." The
opinion, whichever way it is given,
is just that and has not been test-'
ed in court. How the count deals
with inmate numbers only
becomes a legal question if some-
one challenges the way the coun-
ty deals with the issue-whether
inmates are counted or not count-

County commissioners, had
voted in favor of this plan several
weeks ago by a 3-2 vote with the
District 4 and District 5 commis-
'sioners opposing the idea. Not
much support was given to the,
other scenarios because they all
included inmate counts from the
public's point of view.'
The school board has not
taken a formal stand yet on a
. redistricting proposal, but the
members did seem to be in agree-
ment that as a board to not count
inmates, and strive to keep the
current lines intact, or. at least as
close as possible in order not to,
create disruption to the voters.
School Board member
Charlotte. Pierce told those pre-
sent that she felt the school board
intended to hear what the public
has, to say, have as few changes
as' possible to existng bound-
aries, and working together to do'
what's best for the county. "We
are the servants of the people,".
Tom Semmes suggested the
boards also hold a similar public
workshop in the north end of the
county in order to get input from
residents there also.
School Board member Oscar
Redd agreed with Semmes and
suggested the two boards plan
another meeting. The boards
seemed in agreement to go for-
"ward with those plans. The date
will be announced as soon as -it
has been planned.

wvs the possible return to county);

While the question is totally
different from the redistricting
plans, it is an issue that county
voters have overwhelmingly sup-
ported via referendum vote.

Pitts and Lisa Williams, without
you, that spectacular event would

Currently Boyter is being
charged with two burglaries on
Highway C-30, near the Cape
turn-off, and one burglary on St.
Joe Beach. This arrest would not
have been possible had the citizen
not copied down the tag number.

L Drug Tolerance What
Does It Mean?
The word tolerance when applied to drugs is not par-,
ticularly a good thing. For, it can mean that over a period of
time our body has become adjusted to a medicine and the
drug will no longer achieve the desired effect it once did.
This tolerance effect can apply to many types of com-
mon use drug products-laxatives, cough preparations, skin
treatment creams, and ointments. With prescription medi-
cines the tolerance effect can be even more serious. We will
always caution you when such a possibility exists.

Steve Shea, a wildlife biologist
with the St. Joe Timberland

for the removal of the lands fr6nom
the WMA system.
'"The lands that have been
taken out of these areas have
been identified by St. Joe Land,

overnight, but it can't be encum-
bered by a long-term WMA lease
while it's up for sale," Shea said.
"In the near future this prop-
erty will be leased to private hunt-
ing clubs, but ultimately the
property will be sold," he added.
Shea said St. Joe remains
committed to providing land for
public hunting as evidenced b.
the actual increase in land in
Moore's Pasture W'MA. He said St.
Joe still leases more than 230,000
acres to the state for public hunt-
ing, more than any other private
landowner in Florida.

by Dr. Bill Truby '
Alas, the Seniors are gone -
and now the others have followed.
In a memorable commence-
ment exercise, 57 seniors received
their walking papers on Saturday
evening before a packed gymna-
sium at WHS. Superintendent
Jerry Kelley handed out the diplo-
tnas as Principal Bill Truby read
S the names of each graduate. Of
course, this was only a part of a
fabulous evening of awards,
recognition, and speeches.
The following seniors had
leadership roles in the graduation
'exercises. Titus Pittman did the
invocation followed by Myron May
leading the pledge. Senior class
president Jeremy Suber .officially
welcomed the attendees and pre-
sented the senior sponsors, Mrs.
Alcorn 'and Mrs. Herring, tokens
of appreciation for ajob well done.,
Patrick kerrigan gave the student
address and Ashley Padgett pro-'
vided the farewell address.
Stephanie : Kramer closed the
evening with a prayer of benedic-
WHS would like to extend a
*sincere thank you to the many
people who helped to make the
evening possible by volunteering
their time and talents. Alisa
Walker played "Pomp and
*Circumstance." Kyle Pippin led
'the singing of the WHS alma
mater. And a host of presenters
made our seniors feel especially
honored and blessed with their
presence and gifts. (Other infor-
mation about graduation is avail-
able in another article.)

received additional honors.
Chester Udell and Lindsay Carter
were singled out as the Most

It has. been a rewarding
school year on many fronts.
Overall, I think we can be proud of
our students, faculty, and staff.
Our accomplishments have been
noteworthy, our reputation from
many perspectives is solid, and
Sour future seems brighter than,
ever. However, we realize that we
must do a better job in the area of
state accountability, i.e., school
grades and FCAT scores. If we will
all make this our goal, then I fore-
see a major turnaround that will
enhance the entire image of our
school.and community. Along this
line, I report to you now that the
changes that are. imminent in
rules, scheduling, and personnel
have this as.the goal.
'Have a great summer! We'll
check in periodically via this
medium. However, be on the look-
out for our annual summer mail-

Every Second Counts
For Stroke Awareness Month-
this May, the American Stroke
Association, a division of the
American Heart Association,
wants everyone to know that
when it comes to treating stroke,
every second counts. The associa-
tion is urging everyone to elimi-
nate changeable stroke risk
factors, learn the warning signs of
stroke and get immediate medical
help if a stroke occurs.
Every 53' seconds, someone in
the United States experiences a
stroke. Every 3.3 minutes, some-
one dies of one. Stroke is the third .
leading cause of death behind dis-
eases of the heart and cancer, and
is a leading cause of serious, long-
Each year about 600,000 peo-
ple suffer a new or recurrent
stroke. In 1998 stroke killed
158,488. people and left many of
those who survived with severe
Here are the warning signs of
Sudden numbness or weak-
ness of face, arm or leg, espe-
cially on one side of the body;
sudden confusion, trouble
speaking or understanding;
sudden trouble seeing in one or
sudden trouble walking, dizzi-
ness, loss of balance or coordi-
sudden severe headaches with
no known cause.
'Every second counts. Anyone
seeing or experiencing any of
these symptoms should call 911
immediately. Treatment can bd
more effective if given quickly.
Early detection and help reduce
disability from stroke, but must
be administered within three
hours after the onset of stroke
symptoms to be most effective..
"Immediate medical attention
is vital in reducing injury to the
brain when a stroke'occurs," said
Mark Swanson, M.D., president of
the American Heart Association's
Florida/Puerto Rico Affiliate. "It
can make all the difference in the
quality of life for a stroke survivor.
Everyone should accept responsi-
bility for learning the warning
signs of stroke, just like learning
basic first aid or CPR."
A stroke is similar to a heart
attack. It occurs when a blood
vessel bringing oxygen and nutri-
ents to the brain bursts or is
clogged by a blood clot or some
other particle. This rupture or
blockage keeps part of the brain
from getting the oxygen it needs.
Without oxygen, the nerve cells in
that area can't function and die
within minutes. The part of the
body that these cells control also
can't function-which can some-
times lead to death.
Sometimes a major stroke is
preceded by a series of "mini"
strokes days, weeks or even
months before a major stroke,
occurs. These temporary strokes,
known as transient ischemic
attacks or TIAs, result when a
blood clot or other particle tem-
porarily clogs an artery and part
of the brain doesn't get the supply
of blood it needs. TIAs do not
cause permanent injury, but are a
serious warning sign and can be
treated with drugs that keep clots
Stroke is largely preventable
by practicing healthy lifestyle
habits that reduce the risk of
heart disease and stroke-con-
trolling high blood pressure,
maintaining healthy blood choles-
terol levels, eating foods low in
saturated fat and cholesterol,
being physically active, maintain-
ing a healthy weight, stopping
smoking and getting regular med-
A stroke is not a hopeless sit-
uation. Many treatments and
rehabilitation therapies can help
stroke survivors and their families
recover and cope.
The American Stroke
Association's "Stroke Connection"
program provides resources and
support to stroke patients, their
families and caregivers. This
unique program makes it possible
for those affected by stroke to get
help from volunteers' who have
also been affected by it. Support is
paramount in recovery. If you or
someone you know has had a
stroke and you want information
about stroke recovery, call the
Stroke Connection "warmline"
toll-free at 1-888-4STROKE.

by: Marie Steele-Romanelli,
Executive Director St. Joe
Wildlife Sanctuary &
You have. journeyed to the
beautiful forgotten coast and are
seeking out the shorelines of St.
George Island, Mexico Beach,
Cape San Blas or St. Joe Beach
for a variety of reasons. You may
have just decided to sit at the
water's edge, or shell some of the
inost beautiful and quiet beaches
in the world and forget the .stress
of today's fast paced world. You
may have made the decision to
visit here because of the great salt
and fresh water fishing that is
some of the best in the world with
everything from tarpon to pom-
pano and small mouthed-bass to
flat-head catfish. You could also
be a birder looking to fill your lifer
list, after hearing about the
annual, second weekend in
October "Florida Pan-handle
Birding & Wildflower Festival" and
learned what great opportunities
are here on the historic forgotten
coast of Florida for seeing wildlife.
.So, as you explore our great
' outdoors, you will encounter our
wildlife in many different settings,
but sometimes those encounters
will not be the norm. As you travel
to St. George Island via the cause-
way (on what may be your last
drive on this road. It is to be
replaced very soon, with a new
driver friendly bridge) you'll drive
through some critical nesting
areas for some of our rarer shore-
The-parents in the protective
role will keep the baby birds away
from traffic and safe; at least until
the little ones hit that rebellious
fledgling stage. Poor parents! You
can understand it, if you have
ever raised a sweet child that sud-
denly turns rebellious, knows no
fear and is out to conquer the
world! Well, these cute little down
covered baby gulls and terns,
suddenly start to sprout feathers
and decide that those safety nets,
placed to keep them off the road-
way, are no challenge. They can
just hop right over them, and
many of them do so fatally every
year, as they are too inexperi-
enced to fly back. The mom ,
peruses them, frantically flying
over the sand fencing with no
thought for her own safety or
yours. She's a lot bigger than the
-; ;. :' *
kid and will make a real impact on
your windshield, if you're going
above the mandatory speed limit
in the nesting areas.
Last year, due to the hard
work by the officers of The Florida
Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission and the Franklin
County Sheriffs' Officers in
enforcing the speed limit, the
death and injuries numbers
dropped dramatically from vehic-
ular collisions. The St. Joe. Wildlife
Sanctuary and Educational
Center, Inc. would like to thank
all those officers for the long
hours of enforcement and endless
paperwork involved last year that
helped turn around this awful
devastation. These birds are often
looked upon as just nuisance, run
of the mill "sea gulls", but they are
very important to our living com-
fortably on our beaches.
In the normal cycle of nature,
the dead decaying matter from the
sea washes up on our shorelines
with every high tide. The birds in
turn help us. by removing this
matter, at no cost as they feed on
it. If left to accumulate in the hot
sun, the smell would drive us
from the beaches. So please do
your part and help protectivee
these nesting birds until the road
is moved, by slowing down on the
causeway during the nesting sea-
