New Scallop

Counts Are In
Scallop Numbers
Are Up But Still Far
Short of Normal
Researchers with the Florida
Marine Research Institute have
recently completed their June
inventory of scallops in St. Joseph
Bay-the news is better, but still
not good.
Bill Arnold, research scientist
with the FMRI. was receiving the
data from surveyors as we spoke
via phone Tuesday afternoon. The
team searched transects in St.,
Joseph Bay for a three day period
from June 7th through June 9th
working survey sites throughout
the bay.
The results indicate an aver-
age ofjust over 10 scallops found,
per transect (600 square meter
section of bay bottom). This is
much greater than last year's
(2000) survey date which showed
less than four scallops per tran-
sect surveyed on average.
Ten scallops per transect is
very close to the number surveyed
in 1998. While this is a major

Street Dance
Okayed With
Cooperative.
Agreement
Port St. Joe city commission-
ers,' several members of the
"street dance" organizational
committee, local residents, Gulf
County Sheriff Frank McKeitheh,
and Police Chief Jay Leffert field a
workshop to discuss the annual
event Tuesday evening.
Sheriff McKeitheri had
approached the city board last
month requesting that some
action be taken .concerning -the
"street dance." He made it very
clear then, and again during
Tuesday's meeting he did not
oppose the street dance, but felt it
was inappropriate for his officers,
children and anyone else within
hearing distance of the sound
system to have to be exposed to
the vulgar language that was
being broadcast.
The "street dance" represen-
tative agreed and L. C. Ash, who
oversees the D.J., said he would
control that ... There will be no
profanity," Ash said. He and
Woodrow Cherry also addressed a
problem with car sound systems
being some of the culprit, and
that they had no control over
them.
Officers will use state statutes
governing automobile sound sys-
tems to help curtail that part of
the problem.
Organizers also agreed to
keep the sound level down this
year. Complaints rolled in last
year after the "street dance" and
pirate's cannon (from the pirate
ship used in Independence Day
S festivities at the park and marina)
and were credited with disturbing
the sleep of folks up to a mile
away from the sites of the two
events.
The groups also discussed
parking and bathroom availability
issues.

County Adopts District Maps



Calls Off Public Workshop In North End of Gulf


In a surprise move, Gulf
County Commissioner Carmen
McLemore moved for the board to
accept two redistricting scenarios
pending the outcome of a written
opinion from the Attorney
General's Office to count or not
count. inmate populations in
redistricting plans.
McLemore's motion was sec-
onded by Commissioner Carl Fox
during Tuesday's regular meeting
and it called for the board to
accept Scenario 11B if inmates
are counted and Scenario 17A if
they are not included in counts.
Two weeks ago, the board
held a joint public workshop in,
the Port St. Joe High School
Commons Area with the Gulf
County School Board and local
citizens. At that time, both boards
seemed to be in agreement to hold
another workshop In the north
end of the county also.


Commissioner Traylor said
the two plans would cover either
ruling the Attorney General might
make. He was also upset that the
board chair called a meeting in
the north end of the county with-
out discussing it with the two
north end commissioners (he and
McLemore).
There was also discussion
pointing, out that. the Attorney
General's opinion was not a bind-
ing ruling that had to be adhered
to.
Board Attorney Tim
McFarland verified that statement
pointing out that the Attorney
General's opinion would Be con-
sidered as a persuasive opinion in
the absence of case law concern-
ing counting inmate numbers.

lic spoke out against the motion,

Commissioner McLemore
voiced his opinion on Peters'
objection, stating that he knew he
didn't like it because he would

(Peters' district is comprised of an
area basically within the city lim-

Peters argued that it was pre-

Junior Service Leaguie



Receives "Pomints of Light

Governor's Award for Volunteer Organizations


The Junior Service League of
Port St. Joe was established in
1996-not that long before Gulf
County found itself facing the fall-
out from the loss of the county's
largest employer in 1998. As one
of the newest service organiza--
tions in the community, it was
quick to respond to a community
hit with 21% unemployiTient and
facing an uncertain future for


many of its 13,000 residents.
Florida Governor Jeb Bush
recognized the organization for its
shining example of service by
naming the Junior Service League
as recipient of his weekly "Point of
Light" service award.
"There is. no higher calling
than volunteering to help others--
and our many points of light are


Mini Modal Is Locating At Port


As the Port of Port St., Joe
begins to show major signs of
revitalization, Mini Modal
Corporation has announced it
wants to be a part of the local port
activity.
"We want to use the Port of
Port St. Joe as our first Mini
Modal port," said James
Lawrence, president/owner of the
corporation. Lawrence is also vice
president of Sunbelt Auto
Carriers and president of Grace
Intermodal.
What is a Mini Modal and
what does Mini Modal
Corporation do? This is the ques-
tion Lawrence has been answer-
ing throughout the car carrier
and car part shipping industry as
he introduces his new shipping
concept and product.
Lawrence explains that he
began to research a way to inte-


grate shipments of automobiles'
and the shipment of auto parts in
a cost effective manner.
Have you ever thought about
what happens to specialized vehi-
cle carrying trailers, rail cars, and
ships when they finish their one
way trip to deliver rolling mer-
chandise? In most cases, these
mobile carriers are shipped back,
to their point of origin empty,
because it's not practical to .'do
otherwise.
On the other hand, many of
the parts used to assemble the
vehicles are shipped via trailer,
container box, or cargo packages
which are also sent back to their
point of origin, empty in many
cases.
What if a shipping container
could be incorporated that could
reverse this trend and make use
of the "deadhead" shipment back


to the point of origin practically,
affordable, and profitably.
You might call a Mini Modal
unit a better shipping mouse trap
design.
It's lightweight, convenient,
self-contained, mobile (has its
own wheels), collapsible (up to
1/8 its original size), and an
affordable on-site' shipping
option.
in a nutshell, this new innov-
ative approach to consolidate the
shipping of vehicles and .parts
could save an average of $100 in
shipping costs on vehicles manu-
factured and shipped to the
United States.
Also' lucrative is the fact that
the Mini Modal unit would pay for
itself in less than a year's time.
This unit can not only be
used for shipping both directions,
but it is also designed so that it
can be practically carried on vehi-
cle carriers and even maximize
the available space. It can also be
used to ship parts and automo-


biles simultaneously using the
same car carrying system.
By utilizing these existing
assets, they become even, more
valuable and shipping dollars are
maximized.
Another unique and impor-
tant feature of the Mini Modal
system is the fact that it is a roll-
on and roll-off operation and does
not require expensive handling
equipment or lift cranes to move
cargo. This feature reduces the
unloading and loading time when
using trucks, rail,. or ship carri-
ers, and needless to say, time
saved equals money saved.
The first models of the Mini
Modals are currently being pro-'
duced under a pilot program. Ten
units are being manufactured by
the Allvan Corporation (a promi-
nent manufacturer of moving
vans and curtain side trailer sys-
tems) in LaVergne, Tennessee.
Lawrence said the current
production is sold and there is
major interest among shippers

shining examples of what makes
Florida great," the governor states
in his mission statement.
The Junior Service League
has. been extremely active during
.its brief five year existence provid-
ing thousands .of dollars in
community grants, clothing, and
other needs to the community.
This drew the attention of the gov-
ernor's selection committee.
Approximately 30 women,
ages 21 to 45, are active members
of the organization and have
pooled their efforts to dedicate
over 2,000 hours of community
service during the past year.
Since 1996, they have also
raised over $30,000 which has
been used to benefit over 20 orga-
nizations within the community.
Their scholarship fund, annual
clothes shopping trip for needy
children, Clothes Closet, after-
school program, Cancer Society,
power grants for elderly, school
equipment contribution, cultural
events, Monumental Music, and
Kids on the Block puppets are
some of the events and activities
in which the organization partici-
pates.
"I was proud that the gover-
nor recognized our organization,
the Junior Service League, as an
outstanding volunteer organiza-
tion in the state," said past presi-
dent Trish Warriner.
"I want to thank Dr. Jorge
San Pedro, Sara and Gary Ross,
and the Gulf County Republican
Party for recognizing the volun-
teer services we provided and
nominating us for such a presti-
gious honor," she added.
Donna Howze, corresponding
secretary for the league, stated, "I
was speechless when presented
with how much impact we truly
have had. on our community. I
guess when you are busy 'doing'
you don't stop and reflect on the
totality of what the league gives
back to the community."
The governor's "Points of
Light" award is sponsored by
Royal Caribbean International
Celebrity Cruises. It is presented
weekly to a Florida resident or
organization that demonstrates
exemplary service to the
community. Awards are alternat-
ed between recipients under 21
and recipients 21 years or older.

Paid-But Didn't Get Old Yeller


Execution Was Too


Good In This Case

I don't mind telling you that I probably would not be a death row
inmate's best friend especially in those cases where guilt is obvious
and the crime particularly hideous.
Death by lethal injection was far, far too good for Timothy McVeigh. I
don't believe there is anything men could have done to him in the form of
punishment that would come anywhere near matching the crime he
inflicted on hundreds of unsuspecting victims and relatives of victims six
years ago.
In all, 168 people died because of McVeigh's potent truck bomb. The
last living victim was rescued 13 hours after the explosion when; her leg
was amputated to release the grip that twisted metal and crumpled con-
crete had on her appendage. Worse yet, it took 40 long days to locate and
remove all the bodies from the rubble of the Oklahoma City Federal
Building.
I remember vividly the images of the blood splattered faces of shock
and fear on those innocent children who were lucky enough.to have sur-
vived the bombing-those children who were in the day care program
while their parents worked overhead in the upper floors of the federal
building.
Monday morning, McVeigh drifted away through a series of shots that
in no way could be construed as coming close to equalling the torture he
;put his victims through. Unfortunately, the tinted glass around his exe-
cution bed did not allow him to see the faces of the families of those he
had executed six years earlier.
Maybe if 168 photos of the faces of those he killed were placed in full
view around the room where he was executed or in the cells where he was
'kept. Maybe if taped interviews from mothers, fathers, husbands, wives,
.and children. of those who lost loved ones were played each and every
night and day for the past six years in his cell over and over and over
again .
Maybe if he had to witness the scars, both physical and mental, that
he inflicted on the survivors and stand face to face with a different one of
them each and every day over the past six years and explain why he
brought such pain to them.
' Maybe, maybe, maybe how could we ever punish Timothy McVeigh
to an extent that equalled the pain of just one of those families? Hanging,
the electric chair, lethal, injection, nor firing squad is severe enough to
avenge this act... I do have a few private thoughts on ways that he could
have been executed that might have been a little closer to justice, but I'll
just keep them to myself lest one might think I'm as barbaric as McVeigh.
Maybe just maybe in this case, not even the death penalty could
fit a crime as hideous as this. As I read about the cost for incarcerating
prisoners and see where we spend more per prisoner to keep inmates in
jail than we do per child to educate our children, we may need to give a
little thought to some more onginal methods of incarceration.
Timothy M-IcVeigh is gone. though the image of his stone cold fade,will .
surely live on-etched in the mind of each of his victims for-a-rfeatme.
Maybe those victims can now bring some degree of closure to this tragedy.



Tax Cuts On the Way

President Bush signed the $1.35 trillion tax cut bill last week making
most taxpayers pretty doggone happy.
One of those taxpayers was interviewed in the Tallahassee Democrat
last week and asked what she planned to do With her rebate ... Latrelle
Cone told the Democrat that she and her- family planned to use the extra
money to take summer trip to Cape San Bias-now that's a wise choice.
Over the next several years, we are projected to have a $5.6 trillion
dollar budget surplus in our federal budget, and those sweet folks up in
Washington that we elected to ,watch over us are gonna give us back some
of our money that they have taken too much of.
Many of them argued that this'was not the thing to do and that the
money could be used much more wisely by those governmental leaders.8;

Well-as for me and my overpayment. I feel a lot more comfortable
spending my own money the way I want to, rather than depending on the
wisdom of politicians . Reckon what they're: going to do \i th the
remaining $4;25 trillion surplus, if indeed things pan but the way they are
projected?. .
I'm sure they will think of something!

I see where The Star is raising
its price. And I'm wondering how
it's going to affect me. Do you reck-
on I am going to have to write
longer stories now'? Listen, I don't
know about Willie and the rest of


em. but I'm doing about all I can!
We can certainly understand a
pnce increase. We'%e been watch-
ing that unlold since King Khuflu
made hi. final entrance into the
great pyramid. The old king "went
out" thinking the Nile River Straw
and Mud Company had been
adjusting their charges to coincide
with the height of each layer of
four ton square stones they tum-
bled into place.
My first experience with a rate
hike goes back to the Park Theater


circa 1958. I went to town to see
Old Yeller. I had a quarter. Fifteen
,'ents Ior admission and a dime for
the popcorn and dnnk.
I had an inkling that some-
thing was anuss when I didn't see
Fess Parker's name up on the mar-
quee. IL was some dude named
Maurice Chevalier. I figured he
must 'a been the little boy who
owned Old Yeller.
Mr. Clericuzio took my whole
quarter at the ticket window I
asked about my dime. He pointed


to the freshly painted sign pro-
claiming the hefty 67% increase!
Let me tell you, I wasn't thinking
about the rising cost of butter. Or
the minimum wage. Or what
Hollywood was having to pay Fess
and Maunce.
I was hungry and thirsty.
And eleven years old. There
was nobody to protest to! 1Mt.
Clericuzio was busy fleecing the
folks in the line behind me.
That popcorn smelled the best
it ever had as I made my way past
the candy counter toward the
darkened theater. I was resigned to
the fact that I was going to watch
Old Yeller on an empty stomach.
This thing had better be good! No
movie was worth a whole quarter
Some woman came on .the j
screen wearing a big white dress
that didn't look nothing like an old
yeller dog. And I-spotted the Eiffel
Tower in the background. This

in the woods!
I had the wrong movie Ye-
gads! It was a musical! People just
singing all over the place! And -it
wasn't even in Americal Nobody

Oh, When the Saints Went Marching On to the Field


KES TOLD OF A one-armed
baseball player on his home-town
team last week. He made that ball
player seem sort of. super-
human, the- way he described
him. Kes played on that'team.. He
was just out of Pony League base-
ball, so he was a mite small to be
playing with the :big boys.. The
fact that his team-played a one-
armed fielder tells you 'they were
sort of desperate to round out the
team.
We had sort of the same situ-
ation here, on the town team we
formerly had back ,in the late '40s
and early '50s. It was made up of
young men :who were just back
from the war.
Our one-armed man. wasn't
wholly one arm, but he had just
as well be. One of his arms-the
left one, I. think-got shot up in
the war and he didn't .-have the
full use of his hand.
But G..L. Scott played base-
ball with the "Saints." He was a
relief pitcher and worked for the


ETAOIN SHRDLU


,Y Written by Wesley Ramsey


City of Port St. Joe, in the Water
and Sewer Department for many
years.

MANAGER RICHARD Porter
would send "Scotty" [as he was
known] in to relieve Terry Hinote
when he would get wilder than
usual.
"Scotty" would use his with-
ered arm' to clasp his baseball
glove to his chest and slip it on
his right hand, ready ,to field the
ball, as a part of his delivery,-
.when he would deliver his pitch.
You could barely discern when he
would put his glove on and he
always held it in a position to


quickly bring it into action.
Leonard Belin, and Dallas
Weeks provided the offense to
, keep "Scotty" out of trouble.
The team played on the ANRR
field, just north of the office
building, then. One day Leonard
Belin came to bat .four times in a
game with Cottie Hendels and the
Apalachicola "Oystermen." He hit
three home runs and Hendels
decided to intentionally walk him
the fourth time he came to bat.
Well, after two or three balls
were pitched, Leonard just leaned
across the plate and-WHAM-he
hit his fourth home run of the
game! That ball sailed over the


center field fence, nearly as far as
the railroad shops to the east.

BELIN AND WEEKS had help
with their offense from players
like Tommy Mitchell, Bucky
Walters, Alton Dendy, "Coach"
Marion Craig, "Fish" Herring,
Johnny Adams and others I can't
remember.
"Lefty" Thomason was the
main pitcher. IHe "worked" for the
sawmill and was "managed" by
Basil Kenney, Sr. Basil's jqb was
to have "Lefty" ready to toe the
mound on game day.
"Lefty" would look down from
the pitcher's mound at the oppos-
ing batter, and grin with the
whitest teeth you ever saw. Then
he would raar back, kick.his right
foot/nearly to' his shoulder, and
let fly with what was most likely a
blazing fast ball which the batter
had no hopes of hitting!
That was "Saints" baseball!
The team beat every team in
this vicinity, from class "D"


Panama City, to the Carrabelle
"Mullets."
There were teams from
Panama City, Graceville,
Blountstown, Wewahitchka,
Apalachicola, Tallahassee,
Tyndall Field, and, of, course,
Apalachicola.

THE GULF COAST League
was a fast league. They played,
and beat, about every team which
would come to town.
All went well, until other
teams began to pay key players,
just to beat the "Saints."
One July Fourth,
Wewahitchka heard of a profes-
sional pitcher, by the name of
"Ace" Adams, who had recently
"jumped" to the Mexican league
from the New York "Giants."
Adams made more money in the
Mexican League than he did with
the "Giants."
Adams had family., in Dothan
and he was visiting with them on
the holiday. Some of the


Wewahitchka. fans heard about
this and offered Adams a sum of
money to pitch against Port St.
Joe for that one game. j
They were determined to win!
To make a long story short,
.the two teams met in a cow pas-
ture in Wewahitchka, with Adams
on the mound for Wewa arid
Thomason pitching for the
"Saints."

THE SCORE WAS 0-0 after
the first four innings until Alton
Dendy hit a little blooper. Dendy
had figured Adams out and he
met with the rest of the hitters on
his team, for a little pow-wow.
By the end of the very next
inning, the "Saints" had knocked
Adams out of the mound and tlhe
Wewahitchka te n had to finish
the game with a reliever, and c4p
the game off with a bodacious
end-of-the-game fight!
All in all, it was a perfect d'y
for the "Saints."

Economic Development Bill Becomes Law


Sponsored by J
Rural Florida received ano-
ther economic development tool
over the weekend as Governor Jeb
Bush allowed the only major eco-
nomic development bill of the ses-
sion to become law.
The bill,. House Bill 1225, was
written' td address the needs of
rural counties trying to create
additional jobs for their residents,
according to Rep. Bev Kilmer, a
sponsor of the bill.
,: Representative Bev Kilmer
said, "Being designated as part of
the rural area of critical economic
concern was the dawn of a new
day for our Opportunity Florida
.region, and this legislation is a
really good way to start the new
day."
Opportunity Florida is the
name given to eight Northwest
Florida counties that have banded
together to promote economic
development and job creation.
Those counties are Calhoun,
'Franklin, Gadsden. Gulf. Holmes,
"Jackson. Liberty. and Washing-
.ton.
The representative added,
S"This is just another example of
'.the way that everyone working
together can really bring about
positive changes that will. help us
createnew jobs and new opportu-
nities for our residents."
-, Within the Opportunity
SFlorida region the bill allows
.Calhoun, Gadsden, and Holmes
t counties, to create a state enter-
Sprise zone of up to twenty square
miles, and allows Franklin, Gulf,
Liberty and Washington counties
to expand their enterprise zones
from their current three square
mile size to twenty square miles.
Jackson County's enterprise zone,
,, s,.already above twenty square
miles in size. .
The bil also increases the
amount of incenbves available for
businesses located in enterprise
;zpnes. Businesses located within
the enterprise zone will be able to
claim a tax credit when they cre-
ate new jobs and hire a resident of
Sa.rural county.
.; Richard Williams of Oppor-
tunity Florida said the legislation
is a direct result of public input
and public participation.
William said., When
Opportunity Florida was formed
.we visited all of our counties, and
t-io every county we were told that
*-more tools were needed to' help

Rep. Bev Kilmer
- our existing businesses and to
help the county attract new busi-
nesses. This input resulted in
Opportunity Florida and the local
economic development organiza-
tions looking at what was needed
in terms of legislation. Our repre-
sentative and Senator Clary really
carried the ball on this one."
The legislation was first pro-
posed in the 2000 legislative ses-
sion by Rep. Kilmer, and although
it received approval in the house,
the Senate adjourned before they
gave final approval. This session
Kilmer worked with Senator
Charlie Clary to make sure that
both chambers would work to
pass the legislation. ,
Kilmer said she felt the legis-
lation was important because of
special concerns she realizes to be
addressed in the Opportunity
Florida region.
"This region has really been
impacted by. a lot of negatives,
and I see this legislation as
another piece of the puzzle in
helping our area get back on its
feet," Kilmer said. "I'm not fin-

improvement over previous years,
it is still a far cry short of the
bumper crops bay harvesters are
accustomed to seeing in the bay,'
Just a few years ago, an average
count greater than 250 scallops
per transect was the norm.
According to:Arnold, many of
the transects surveyed had
counts of "0." while the highest
count for any one transect was
167 scallops, and when all were
averaged out, the! average per
transect equalled 10 scallops.
This is good news for the scal-
lops and scallopers, but there is
still reason for concern since the
numbers are far below normal
bumper years.
Red tide is thought by most:
people to be the culprit behind
low scallop numbers in recent
years. Over the past two years,
the bay has experienced out-
breaks of red tide.
Scallopers should take note of
the low levels and try to be as con-
.-servatve as possible in their har-
yesting plans and abide by har-
"vest regulations.


ished working to give this whole
region the tools it needs to create
the kinds of jobs our people
deserve, and I am also pleased
anytime we can help this area."

Key Points from HB 1225
Modifies the enterprise zone
program for better use by rural
areas of the state.
Increased the tax credits avail-
able for companies in a rural
enterprise zone.
Allows companies in a rural
enterprise zone to gain tax
credit by creating a new job
and hiring a resident of a rural
county for that job. (Prior to
1225 the credit was available
only if the business hired a res-
ident of the enterprise zone.)
Requires. state agencies to be
creative when looking at match
requirements placed upon
rural counties as they compete
for state funds.
Allows greateraccess by rural
businesses attempting to grow
to the rural jobs tax credit pro-
gram.
Allows all counties in the rural
area of critical economic con-
cern to participate in the rural
jobs tax credit program (In
Northwest Florida those are:
Calhoun, Franklin. Gadsden.
Gulf, Holmes. Jackson, Liberty
and Washington.).
Increases to 150 percent the
DRI threshold for residential,
motel. hotel offices for any area

that popped into my head was that
Mr. Clericuzio must 'a bought the
company .
Hippies! It didn't take much
investiion to figure this one out.
While I was immersed in the col- :
lege wars in the last half of the six-
ties. even' hippy in the known
world had bought a pair of Levi's!
Mr. Strauss wasn't no dummy.
And he didn't care how they faded
em or what they wrote on them.
He just enjoyed the wave after
wave of flower children lining up to
buy a pair of his jeans. You talk
about timing! I get me a paying job
just as the whole lot of them are
getting dressed for Woodstock!
I learned something about
supply and demand that they did -
n't teach in college. When I started
chewing Beech-Nut tobacco it cost
twelve cents a pack. I quit when it -
got to a dollar, fifty-nine. I still
enjoyed it .., but I had to pay for
a house and feed a family. And buy
gas. ,
I, could go on here, but I'm
singing to the choir.
Ain't none of ,us surprised
. about the extra cost of The Star. 1I
just don't want us to go the way of
the Baby Ruth and the corn lakes.
I'm going to do my part by writing
better stories. Ah ah .. Ill
start on that next wee k! .
Meanwhile, I'm going to see if I
can't get something out of this
increase. You don't reckon Willie
would buy me a pair of Levi's ....

"Beached Birds".....


By Barbara Eells, Wildlife
Rehabilitator/Sea Turtle
Permit holder
Divers of the deep! This is the
time of the year we may begin to
get calls on a "beached bird, but
not a pelican!"
The northern gannet is in
migration now from the northern
coasts to the southern coasts of
Florida to spend the summer. The
morus bassanus is a member of
the booby family. Gannets and
boobies have slender, spindle-like
bodies with pointed wings and
tails, webbed feet and a wingspan
that can reach six feet.
They dive for fish from as high
or higher than 50 feet into the
water at a depth of up to 50 feet
and will chase their prey under-
water, then bring it to the surface


to swallow it. Air sacs surround
their bodies as in pelicans, to
allow them to dive and hit the
water. They are much splashier
than the pelican when diving.
The northern gannet is the
only member of the family to
migrate. They nest in Newfound-
land, Nova Scotia and around the
Gulf of St. Lawrence on to Iceland
and the British Isles on the rocky
cliffs during the summer months.
They are very sociable birds, with
thousands building nests of sea
weed and sticks and raising at
least two to three babies each
year.
The first year youngsters fly

,off the rocks as they take their
first flight and tend to migrate fur-
ther than the adults. The adult
birds are solid white with black on

"Art" Comes to

Dixie Theatre
"Art," a new play by Yasmina
Reza, translated by Christopher
Hampton, is a serio-comedy about
art and friendship, and is coming
to Dixie Theatre in Apalachicola
June 14th..
,.,How much wquld. you pay for
a white painting?, Would. it.matter
who the painter was? Would it be
art?
One of Marc's best friends,
Serge, has just bought a very
expensive painting. It is about five
feet by four, all white with white
diagonal lines. To Marc, the paint-
ing is a joke, but Serge insists
Marc doesn't have the proper
Standard to judge the work.
Another friend, Yvan, though bur-
dened by his own problems,
allows himself to be pulled into
this disagreement. Eager to
please, Ivan tells Serge he likes
the painting. Lines are drawn,
and these old friends square off
over the canvas, using it as an
excuse to relentlessly batter one
another over various failures. As
their arguments, become lass the-
oretical and more personal, they
border on destroying their friend-
ships.
The London mail said, "That
such a simple play can throw up
such profound and meaty ideas
about the rules that dictate art
and friendship is a real treat. Reza
and Hampton have an acute ear
for the idiocies, trivia, and petty
assaults that pepper the conver-
sation between friends...The real
pleasures come from Reza's cre-
ation of three beautifully defined,
original characters..."
"Art" is the winner of the 1998
Tony Award for Best Play of, the
Year on Broadway.
"Anyone looking for a play
that is funny, sophisticated, styl-
ish, stimulating and moving,
should go to 'Art'," said the
Independent of London.
"Art" will open Thursday,
June 14th and run through
Sunday, June 24th. Performances
are Thursday, Friday and
Saturday, at 8:00 p.m., and
,Saturday and Sunday at 2:30
p.m.
For reservations call the Dixie
Theatre Box Office at 653-3200.
Box office hours are Wednesday
from 11:00 until 2:00 p.m.,
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday
from 2:00 p.m. until 2:30 p.m.


the outer wings and appear as a
"cross" shape when they fly, The
youngsters are white with brown
or dark spots. They have gray col-
ored beaks with the adult having
a yellow color around the top por-
tion of the beak. These are these are the
birds that one usually sees when
walking along the beach during
their migration season.
The youngster will sit in the
high water line where there is sea-
weed or detritus on the beach so
that they blend in with the area as
they did in the nesting area.
Because they migrate further
than adults and second or third
year birds, they sometimes get
very tired, especially if a storm'-
with high winds and waves are
present.
Perhaps their immune system
isn't functioning properly, or the
salt gland doesn't function in the
aid to ingestion of food or what-
ever the cause may be, they just
cannot continue the journey.
Sometimes there is the need to
just be left alone and rest and'.
then make their way to the water
or wait for a high tide to carry
them out.
This is the beginning of gan-
net migration season. It is the
time you may find one beached.
This bird will not attempt to get
away from you, but will try to use
its beak to jab at you as pelicans
do to scare their predators away
from them. They waddle on land,
making it appear that they have a
broken wing or leg. Please, if you
find one, leave it alone The beak
is sharp and pointed, and in
reaching down, the bird may jab
at your eyes. The inside of the
beak is also razor-sharp.
Do not. be fooled by the
appearance of being in trouble-
yes, the bird may very well be in
trouble, but careful! Call a wildlife
rehabilitator for help in finding
out what to do to help. Sometimes
we ask you to just leave him
alone.
Just to end with a story that
could have been disastrous, but
was comical in a way! Last year, at
the El Governor Motel .area, a
young northern gannet was
reported to be on the beach and
swimming with the guests. I went
to get her (or him) and she was
funny! She would get on the
beach, then if anyone approached
her, she would get into the water.
She swam fast enough to get away
from me trying to go after her. She
would swim in and around people
and, of course, they were giving
,,her.r om to maneuver! No :ne got
close to her, everyone seem to
understand she was having the
time of her life, playing a game
with her co-swimmers! Finally,

returning to at-large voting in
Gulf County for county commis-
sion districts. He said the county
would need to start the process by
issuing a $5,000 retainer.
Commissioner Jerry Barnes made
the motion to do so, which
received a second from
Commissioner Carl Fox.
Board Chairman Nathan
Peters, Jr. who resides in the
minority district created by the
single member district court
order, said this action was a
waste of taxpayers' money.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
responded that was only the opin-

The board voted 4-1 to go for-
ward with the process. Commis-

motion.

Not Changing Party
Dear Editor:
.' I read. your editorial today,
and I am so glad that you are a
Democrat.
As for Senator Bob Graham
,having a fund-raiser for the
SDemocrats In New York City ;to.
benefit Florida. I think that is
great because that is where the
money is. I wonder ifyou will print
in The Star when the oil barons
from Texas start their fund raiser
for the Republicans in Florida.
As for Hillary Clinton, she's
smart. She won the election for
Senator of New York, which is one
of the toughest states to win an
election-especially for a woman.
I am hot disappointed in my
party, although I disapprove of
some of the things on their
agenda, but that can be fixed;
however, there are sohne things on
the Republican party agenda that
I also disapprove of. Neither party
.; is perfect.
I will not change my party
affiliation and I hope Sen.
Graham raises a bunch of money
to defeat Jeb Bush in the next
governor's election in the great
state of Florida.
Sincerely,
Dorothy E. White

of the best places to watch them
dive and fish is from the Palm
Point area near Butler's. You need
your binoculars because they dive
out in the deeper water in that
area. Another great bird watching
area is the south side of the bridge
at Highland View where the eagles
sit in the tree and the red-tail
hawk fledgling is taught to hunt


food for himself. You can observe
plovers, least terns, and all other
shorebirds from gulls to pelicans
to wading birds in that area. '
If you are not a bird watcher,
then it is time to begin! It takes
time, but you can spend five min-:
utes to hours doing it and it can'
make a difference in your life!


2000 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

City of Wewahitchka
We're very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about the
excellent water and services we have delivered to you over the past year. Our goal is, and always has been, to provide to you a
safe and dependable supply of drinking water.
Our water source is groundwater from 2 wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer.
We are pleased to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Donnie Minchew 639-2605. We,
encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our
regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second and fourth Monday of every month at 6:30 at City Hall.
City of Wewahitchka routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules,
and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of
January 1st to December 31st, 2000. As authorized, and approved by EPA, the State has reduced monitoring requirements for
certain contaminants to less often than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary
significantly from year to year. Some of our data [e.g., unregulated contaminants contaminants], though representative, is
more than one year old.
In the table below you will find'terms and abbreviations you might not be familiar with. To help you better understand thee
terms we've provided the following definitions:
* Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are
set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
- Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
* Non-Detect or "ND" means not detected: and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
* Non-Applicable (n/a):' Does not apply.' .
* Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which
a watcr system must follow.
* Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by irrei.ir af
the water sample.
* Partsper billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ugl) one part by weight of analyze to I billion parts by weight of the
water sample.
* Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
* Method Detection limits (MDL) minimum level measurable of a contaminant with 99, confiide ,
As you can .ic bl ric j.filn'ing talbe, our system had no violations. We're proud rtha your drinking Inw 'ir inrcr or c 'vted all
Federal and State requirements.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs,
and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals
and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human
activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of indus-
trial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff and septic sys-
tems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contam-
inants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water
which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contam-
inants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information
about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe
Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-com-
promised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants,
people with HIV/AIDS or other. immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from
infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines
on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are
available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
City of Wewahitchka would like for you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process
and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns
about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

If you have a gum infection,
there's a good chance your dentist
will ask you to rinse with hydrogen
peroxide. Basically, hydrogen per-
oxide is like liquid oxygen. The
bubbling effervescence, though
not very pleasant, really gets into
the deepest areas of infection. It
not only kills the excessive
amounts of germs, but also pro-
vides the oxygen so necessary for
healing in the presence of infec-
tion. Here's how to do it:

The Peroxide

Rinse

Rinse 4-times a day with
hydrogen peroxide diluted with an.
equal quantity of water as warm as
you can stand (please test it so.
you don't burn. yourself). About
one ounce of peroxide and one
ounce of water is sufficient. You
don't need a measuring cup-the
two ounce total will be sufficient
for two or three good mouthfulls.-,
Swish and suck, trying to suck the
solution between your teeth. Make
sure all areas of y6ur gums get
bathed. If you rinse three times
(about 15-20 seconds per rinse),,
you should cover it. Don't swallow.

NJROTC Cadets Enjoy Week Long Tour of Naval Facilities


The Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka NJROTC unit con-
ducted their annual orientation
tour from June 3rd through the
9th. The cadets experienced three
specialty naval bases-submarines
at NAVSUBASE Kings Bay, air-
craft at NAS Jacksonville and sur-
face ships at NAVSTA Mayport.
The second half of the trip
included attractions in Orlando,
such as Universal Studios' Islands
of Adventure, Wet-N-Wild, and the
Medieval Times Dinner Show.
The unit arrived in Kings Bay
submarine base Sunday night
and stayed in the; military "hotel.
style" barracks for, three days.
Monday morning, the cadets
toured the Trideht Submarine
Training Facility where subma-
rine crews are trailed. Each after-
noon and evening. the cadets
enjoyed the base's' gym, fitness
center, and bowling facilities.


They also experienced "three
squares a day" at the naval dining
facilities. Surprisingly enough,
they enjoyed nourishing meals.
Tuesday the cadets toured
NAS Jacksonville. The cadets
toured U.S. Customs P-3 Orion
aircraft, the Aircraft Intermediate
Maintenance Depot Parachute
Loft. The sailors explained how
they pack and maintain aircrew
survival equipment including
emergency rafts, signaling equip-
ment and parachutes. After a
good lunch, they visited the crash
and rescue facility. These are
highly specialized firefighters with
very interesting equipment. Bus
#73 was the first Gulf County
school bus to go motoring down
military runways and taxiways to
get to the firehouse. The last tour
of the day was a boat trip on naval
patrol boats where the cadets
earned their sea cruise ribbon.


For many, it was their second sea
cruise this year.
Wednesday morning the
cadets traveled to Naval Station
Mayport for a Damage Control
Trainer at the Fleet Training
Center. The FTC crews instructed
the cadets on procedures of
repairing damaged ships during
battle. They learned how to plug


leaks in the side of a ship, how to
emergency repair a pipe that had
burst, and how to prevent further
flooding with water removal sys-
tems. After classroom training,
the cadets were placed in a mock-
up of a ship where they had to
repair holes in the ship's walls
and bursting pipes while water
was being pumped in at 750 gal-


Ions per minute. The cadets saved
the ship, learned more about
team work and had a ball. That
afternoon the unit traveled to
Orlando for a fun-filled two days
of Orlando's best attractions.
Fundraising for this trip
included nine car washes, bake
sales, raffles, donations from local.
businesses and individuals, and
the Port St. Joe High Booster
Club. Your generous support of
your high school students was the


key to the success of the educa-
tional and enjoyable Orientation
of the NJROTC. A special thanks
goes to the brave chaperones: Lori
Butler, Lae Lalucerne, and
Annetter and Tim Hightower for
all the extra efforts they added. An
additional thanks goes to the
school board and bus facility for
allowing them to use the air con-
ditioned bus which was a life-
saver.


Rebecca Needham and Thomas Webb are holding pieces of the
"jaws of life" that are used in the aircraft at the NAS in Jacksonville.


The cadets were taught at the NAS in Jacksonville the ins and
outs of injection seat parachutes that are used in the military air-
craft. Here they are being instructed on how to properly fold the
parachutes.


Rebecca Needham and Sherry Boster are pictured here shortly
after their water damage control mock-up at the NAVSTA in Mayport.


The cadets were taken out on these military boats at the NAS in
Jacksonville. They were being shown the boundaries of the water
patroled by the NAS there.


Mutant fire trucks? These green "monstrous" vehicles are actu-
ally fire trucks. They are used at the NAS in Jacksonville in case of
an emergency on the runway.

Happy Father's Day.
If you have a father living, you
need to thank God right away.
Don't wait until tomorrow,
because you could be late by a"
day. ,
We are not promised tomorrow
so don't sit around and be
sorry later.
Call him up and tell him. you
love him, it'll make you both
feel better.
I wish I could call mine and
say, I love you!,
I'd like to say thanks for all the
fishing trips, too.
,To thank him for the hunting
trips, would "be very good.
To thank him for guiding me
through life as only he could.
I'd like to be able to do all this,
but there is no way I can.
Because my daddy died' when I
was only ten.
So folks if you have a father liv-
ing, get on your knees, and
thank God today.
When you get up, either call or
see him and. say "Happy
Father's Day."

Southern Chinch


Bugs Destroy Lawns


The chinch bug belongs to a
group of insects we call "true
bugs." Along with plant bugs and
stink bugs, they have that charac-
teristic "buggy" odor if crushed.
Chinch bugs start the size -of a
pinhead when first hatched (red-
dish in color with a white stripe)
and grow to one fifth of an inch as
an adult (black with white or sil-
very wings).
They feed on the grass by
sucking juices which leads to a
yellow and then brown color as
grass dies. Most rapid loss occurs
when temperatures are high and
grass is dry. Areas near the edges
of walks and drives are often the
first to be affected. .
Chinch bugs can be seen with
the unaided eye. To spot them,
part the grass at the edge of a yel-
lowing spot and watch a few min-
utes. Repeat this several times. If
there, they will seem to be scurry-
ing about. Another technique is to
cut the two ends from a coffee
can, push it into .the soil, and
then slowly fill it with water. If
present, chinch bugs. will swim to
the surface. '
An easier method is to mix
two tablespoons of any dish-
washing soap to two gallons of
water (without making suds) and
pour this over a two foot square
area that is yellowing. Wait a few
minutes and if chinch, bugs are
present, they'll come up. Always
check at the edge of where yellow
turns to green. Checking in dead
areas will give poor results.
Studies have revealed that the
frequent applications of liquid or
quick release fertilizers' encourage
chinch bugs. Going to two fertil-
izer applications per year (March
and August) and using a 16-4-8,
15-0-5 or 10-10-10 (minimum 30
percent slow release nitrogen) has


shown'to reduce the incidence of
chinch bugs. Many, homeowners,
using low fertilizer levels report,
going years without having chinch
bugs;
It has also been shown that
prolonged periods of moisture
stress encourages chinch bugs.
Keeping the lawn watered (but not
over-watered) makes a difference
in their activity. Remember that
mowing high with a sharp blade
conserves water and helps to pre-
vent drought stress as well.
Thickly thatched lawns-ones
where old dead runners were
never removed before grass was
allowed to grow back-tend to har-
bor chinch bugs. Such lawns may'
need dethatching. There are spe-
cial machines that can be rented
to do this.
Finally, there are varieties of
St. Augustine grass that are resis-
.tant to chinch bugs, The newest
one 'on the market is, a variety that
wants full sun and most yards
cannot provide this so other vari-
eties would perform better, even if
they are less tolerant of chinch
Sbugs,
When it is determined chinch
bugs are present and causing
damage, a pesticide should be
applied. Products containing
Diazinon, Dursban, or Orthene
are suggested for homeowner, use.
S-To apply a product properly,
read the pesticide, label. If liquids
are used, they can be applied with
*,a hose-end attachment. To make
sure that the proper amount is
used, do a test run with only
water in the jar and see how far
that amount covers at the walking
speed you will be using. That will
-determine how fast or slow you
will walk to put out a certain
amount of gallons for a particular.

Learn How to.Minimize the

Effects of Indoor Air Pollution


Indoor air pollution is irritat-
ing to everyone. Listed here are
some tips from the American
Association: for Respiratory Care
that will help you; decrease or,
eliminate irritants from 'your
home. .
* Kitchens, bathrooms, -and any
work area ,like a garage are
good places 'to install'exhau,st
fans. These areas tend to accu-.
mulate t'mes which can aggra-.
vate allergies or other
respiratory conditions.
* Appliances, have many parts
that collect .dust and. other
indoor irmtants. so give them a
thorough cleaning, as often as
necessary. Be sure to include
these on your list:, heat
exchangers, dryer'r" filers. refrig-.
erator coils; water pans under
the refrigerator, furnaces, air
conditioner filtei-s and air
ducts. '
* Aerosol products' can be ifritat-'
ing for some people.' If you
'notice sensitivity to them, 'try y
using pump or~ solid alterna-
tives for air fresheners, hair
sprays, or deodorants.
Poor air circulation can con-
tribute to respiratory discom-,
fort. Avoid this by keeping the
doors of all rooms open.'Open a
window for a few "minutes each
day during the winter months
and leave bne slightly open all,
dayduring the summer. Ceiling
fans also help increase air cir-
culation, .but ,don't forget to
clean the blades regularly. ,

Power Wheelchairs
Are Available
The Senior Wheels USA pro- .
gram makes available power,.
wheelchairs to senior citizens (65
years old and up) and the perma-
nently disabled at no cost to the
recipient, if they qualify. ,
The Senior Wheels USA pro-
gram's main purpose and goal -is
to develop public awareness that
there are assistance -options that'
allow senior citizens (as well as.
the permanently disabled) to.,
remain independent in their own ,
.homes.
The program believes that,
without this. awareness and assis-'-
tance, the family 'may prema-
turely choose a nursing home, or
make an unnecessary retail pur-i
chase on power mobility equip-
ment.
If the patient does- not meet -
all the requirements of the pro-,
gram, Senior Wheels USA may"
still be able to help them through ,
its donation program. This pro-,,'
gram-is made available by public
donations of wheelchairs that are
no longer needed.,
The power wheelchairs are .
provided to those who cannot
walk and cannot self-propel a
manual wheelchair, and who meet
the additional guidelines of the
program. No deposit is required.
If the patient's need is for use
in the home, please call for more
information to see if they qualify.

Foods That Counter
The "Snack Attack"
Everybody who has ever had
an appetite is subject to the snack
attack. Whether we fight- it, deny
it, or indulge 'it, the urge to
splurge between meals has always
been with us-and probably
always will be.
But that's okay. In fact,
healthy and controlled snacking
canrwork for us as we try to' lose
or maintain weight. One impor-
4tant factor, is having, the right
foods on hand at snack time. Here
are some ideas.,.
Keep washed cut-up raw veg-
etables in the refrigerator at home

and at work. Choose from broccoli
and cauliflower .florets, zucchini
and cucumber slices, green bell
pepper rings: prewashed, and
peeled baby carrots, celery sticks;
and cherry tomatoes.,
Ginger snaps. fig bars;, gra-
bhamr crackers, vanilla wafers, and
animal crackers 'have a lower fat
content than most cookies,..
;, Plain air-popped- popcorn,
low-fat pretzels, and flavored .rice
cakes satisfy common cravings for
crunchy, salty, or buttery tastes,
yet contain little or no fat.,
Make your own flavored
yogurt by buying plain low-fat
yogurt and stirring in fruit, spices,
jelly flavored extracts (coffee,
vanilla, butterscotch, etc.) and /or
artificial sweetener.
Oranges make a good snack
with few calories, zero fat, and
high vitamin C content. As a
'bonus, you get some fiber. Grapes
and cherries are great treats too.
Bananas satisfy a sweet tooth
yet provide few calories (about
100 per medium bariana) and lit-
tle fat. Bananas also provide lots
of potassium and vitamin C.
Bread sticks ,can provide
maximum crunch with' minimum
fat (check label to be sure).
,A bowl of bouillon or broth
makes .a savory snack. Check
labels to ensure a low fat and salt
content.
Small bagels. especially when
flavored with cinnamon and
raisin, make: a sweet treat even
without fattening spreads.
Flavored no-calorie seltzers
help keep you hydrated so you
won't mistake thirst for hunger.
Dried fruits-apncots. apples,
raisins, prunes, and figs- make
good "on the run" sweet treats.
Keep calorie counts in mind
though.
If you like to dip your low-fat
chips. chose salsa over creamy
dips.' Sala has lower fat and its
zesty flavor satisfies taste 'budsi
more effectively.
