40 Packages of
Crack Off the Streets
Gulf County .Sheriff Frank
McKeithen arrested Brandon King
Williams last week on charges of
* possession of crack cocaine with
intent to distribute.
Williams was being held in
the Gulf County Jail under a bail
of $100,000 after 40 packages of
crack cocaine were found in his
possession.
According to. Sheriff
McKeithen, he received a tip that
a subject, riding a motor scooter
along Martin Luther King, Jr.
Boulevard, had a large amount of
crack cocaine.
SMcKeithen said he saw the
subject riding a red scooter when
he arrived in the area. The sub-
ject, in turn, saw the sheriff and
parked in front of a residence, got
off the scooter, and walked onto
the porch.
The sheriff knew Williams did
not live at the residence and
approached him. Williams tried to
pull away and was subdued by
McKeithen at which time the 40
packs of crack were found on
Williams.
The crack has a street value
of between $1.500 and $2.000.

Commission Debates Over


Board iM
Gulf County commissioners
discussed several items during a
special meeting held Monday
afternoon, but items involving
chairman conduct and board pol-
icy surfaced as hot topics.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
had requested the two issues be
placed on the agenda and brought
them up near the end of the meet-
ing.
Traylor specifically addressed
the chairman's reported refusal to
sign documents .the board had
approved during its previous
meeting which would have started
the process of challenging the
consent order establishing single
member districts in Gulf County,
and beginning the process to
switch to at-large voting. This
legal challenge was approved by
the board by a 4-1 vote, with
Commissioner Peters objecting to
the motion.
Peters is also the party
involved in the consent order, and
has called efforts to return to at-
large voting a waste of taxpayers'
money. During the board meet-
ing, he said that he did not refuse
to sign the paperwork, nor has he
ever refused to sign documents


meetingg P]

while serving as the chair.
Traylor challenged that state-
ment and asked Board Attorney
Tim McFarland to recoup what
had taken place. McFarland said
the chairman told him, "I'm not
going to sign that." McFarland, in
turn, asked if he should get Vice-
Chairman Traylor to sign the doc-
uments. He said the chairman
responded ,by gesturing with
raised eyebrows.
Peters retorted, stating that
he did not refuse to sign -the
papers.
Commissioner Traylor did
sign the documents necessary to
retain an attorney to begin the
process after the previous meet-
ing. He also asked Chairman
Peters if he was going to fulfill his
responsibilities as chairman of
the board.. Chairman Peters con-
tinued to maintain that he did not
refuse to sign the paperwork, but
rather was busy signing other
county documents at the time.
Handling of Meetings
Commissioner Traylor also
discussed how the meetings were
handled. He particularly pointed
out that speakers should come to
the podium to address the board.


rotocol
The board agreed and voted 5-0 to
require all speakers to approach
the board.
Traylor also brought up for
discussion the five minute time
limit on people addressing the
board, and told Chairman Peters
he had allowed at least one per-
son to go over that time limit
(Marion Hough). Traylor said she
was allowed to speak multiple
times and exceeded the time limit.
Peters responded that he was
aware she had exceeded her time
limit, and that he advised her of
that during the meeting; but he
was lenient and allowed her to
run over after cautioning her
about time limits.
Peters also mentioned that
just a few weeks 'prior he had
received a letter from Traylor stat-
ing he had done a good job of
chairing the board's meetings.
Traylor said the board needs
to abide by the five minute time
limit, and all board members were
in agreement that should be five
minutes per night, not five min-
utes per issue.

Let's Take A Poll


Up until last Tuesday's meeting of the Gulf County Commission, I
thought it was going to be interesting to watch the Gulf County School I mean, you've got to sit down
Board and county commission board try and seek common ground as and figure the odds on this one!
they looked at redistricting and made decisions on how prison inmate Cathy and I have enjoyed
populations should affect those boundaries. sharing our home for the past ten
I reported in last week's paper that in a "surprise" move the county months with a foreign exchange
board voted to adopt two redistricting scenarios. One would be incorpo- student from Wiesbaden,
rated (11B) if the Florida Attorney General gave an opinion saying that
Gulf County should include prison inmate counts in its redistricting
efforts. The other scenario (17A) would be used if the Attorney General
says "no" to inmate numbers when rendering his opinion.
One of the county's administrative staff questioned my use of the
word "surprise" in the article mentioned above. After careful examination
of the use of that word, I guess he's right Nothing that takes place
involving this matter should come as arny "surprise" to me anymore.
Over the past few months, commissioners have decided to count pris-
oners, to not county prisoners, and then to seek an opinion from the State
Attorney General before making a determination as to what to do. Board
members have also asked county-mapping personnel to draw up numer-
ous maps and revisions of maps during this time span in efforts to find a
redistricting solution which a majority of the board would accept. They -
also seemed interested in holding workshops with the school board to try
and reach union on the question so that maybe redistricting lines could
be agreed to by both boards, and the county would have the same districts
for both the school board and county commission districts. '
Ultimately, these district lines should be drawn fairly, equally, and
proportionately so that needs of the citizens of the county can be best ...
served. There is no real reason that the county should have different dis-
trict boundaries, other than a desire by one or both boards not to work
toward that goal. .
Another interesting scenario is whether or not to count inmate num-
bers. The bottom line answer to this question is-the law is not clear.
Regardless of what the Attorney General rules, it's still a coin toss. If. the
issue is challenged in court, there is no case law to determine whether
prison inmate numbers have to be counted on a local level when redis-
tricting.
Over the past few weeks, I've tried to take an informal polling of the
citizens of Gulf County on these questions. To date, I have not found one
individual from the North, South, East or West end of the county who
thinks inmates should have a bearing on how we redistrict in Gulf
County.
If the board goes forward with counting prisoners, regardless of the
Attorney General's ruling, there will likely be a legal challenge by resi-
dents. If they decide not to count prisoners, where will the challenge
come?
It just seems that if we're going to court over the issue one way or the
other, maybe it would be best to be on the side of the issue that most res-
idents appear to be.on, and.fight for their beliefs. ; .--- .. ; .. .-
Then, again, I have' been accused of having my head in, the sand .
befoe adtheef t fore missing the big picture. If that's the case,.he' it' ..
important to know how the voters really feel on this and other related
issues. So let's carry out an informal poll, so the community can respond
on the issues.
Questions:
1) Should prison inmates be included in establishing voting district lines '
in Gulf County? YES NO -
2) Is it important for both the school board and county commission dis-
trict lines to be alike for voting purposes? YES __- NO __
3) Should District 4 (Commissioner Nathan Peters' district) be reconfig-
ured to include Cape San Blas and Indian Pass areas, by including a
narrow path along Highway 98 to connect it around District 5, -
(Commissioner Jerry Barnes' district]? YES NO _
4) Should county commissioners continue with their efforts to return to '
at-large voting for commission seats-rather than the current single
member district method? YES NO
Please include . .Name- -

After completing the poll; please drop it by the offices of The Star at i
209-211 Reid Avenue, or mail it to P. O. Box 308, Port St. Joe, FL 32457:. _

Germany. Leo has truly been a
pleasure. He lust seemed to fit
richt in from the very beginning .

His parents. Berno and Birgit.
arid his beautiful younger sister.
Lotte. Ilew o'er tcL ~lsit their son's
"host family, and spend .a little
time with us. Just your typical
international bonding that takes
place at the end of a lot of these
exchange programs. On the sur-
face nothing appeared to be out of
the ordinary until ole Jess and


I got to comparing notes on all the
comings and goings ....
And here's where. you need
your calculator. Folks, these
GermanC visitors are actually relat-
ed to Cathy's family! Can you
imagine that! We had no idea!
SWhat do you figure the chances
are of these guys showing up from
halfway around the world-we'd
never even knew they existed a
year ago-and, low and behold,
they are blood kin to my wife's clan


0 .0


Unbelievable!!!
No wonder Leo fit right in!
And listen, there's no doubt
about the relationship. We've got
irrefutable proof. First off. I can't
understand a word they say. It's
just exactly like a Parker family
reunion. Cathy gets together with
Gay and Eugenia and Jo Blair and
Mary Dudley and Lyn and Geneen
and the gibberish runs rampant!
It's all in-a foreign tongue! A laigh
means one thing, a grunt some-
thing else, a nod of the.head could
be good or bad, and naturally, they
are all talking ninety miles an hour
and all at the same time ....
I've thought for years it sound-
ed a little Deutsche. Now I know!
I just smile and nod when
Benno addresses me. It makesnme
appear to understand. And'-I've
been practicing that very role so
long at family get-togethers that
it's second nature to me now. .
I'll tell you, another tell-tale
sign. You ought to see these
Germans eat! They rake it in with
both hands . and they hang in
there until there's not a morsel
left! It's like having four Jo Blairs
sit down with you at every meal.
You talk about fitting right in
at the family reunion! They *get.
that food running over three sides
of the plate just like everybody
else. They go through chicken-pot-
pie like Caesar went through Gaul.
They understand what a "spoon-
full" is. And hey. they'll fight' you
for the front of the line .
We haven't found an American
dish they can't deyour. I remember
Jo Blair telling me on several occa-
sions that she'd "never met a meal
she didn't like." I called her right
after breakfast the first day Leo's
family was with us, "Jo, why
haven't you told me about your
cousins in Wiesbaden?"
I think she said something
about bratwurst and Wiener
schnitzel, but I couldn't under-
stand her.
When Cathy's sisters come to
1isi-t 'ey bing 'summer ani. win-
ter clothes! They have their truiiks
shipped by rail cars. They arrive a
little after New Year's Day and
immediately want to know if we've
got good seats for the fireworks
display on the 4'u of July.
Apparently, no one in the in-
eage is familiar with t en
Franklin's famous story about the
visitors and the fish!
The Heims are certainly
upholding that family tradition!
They brought enough stuff to lhst
till Christmas. And, they-sshow
more signs of staying than goitig!
They are talking about "our" trip to
Louisiana and "our"'trip to the
mountains and "our" trip to the
Grand Canyon.

,I felt duty bound, to tell these
Germans about their kin-folks in
West Tennesseel And how it
wouldn't be polite to come all this
way and not spend a little time

Remembering City "Supervisors" of Times Gone By.


TALKING ABOUT OUR one-
armed. baseball player last week,
reminded me of our Sewer and
Water Department late superinten-
dent and our unique Police Chief
who served Port St. Joe's needs in
the early days of the community.
And, it was just in time, too,
since I won't be here next
Thursday, to come down and set
this column.
We had. a Water Department
superintendent once who was a
whiz at fixing things.
He once worked for the railroad,
and the big cheese at the railroad,
J. L. Sharit, told him he could take
over the city's new water and sewer
installation at that time and oper-
ate it, keeping it in proper repair.
Sharit was the mayor, at the
time, and was mayor for for about as
long as Frank Pate has presently
been.
Sharit did things the old fash-
ioned way.He y. He wanted it done and
so it was done! No questions
asked.


W. W. "WOODY" DARE would
let you believe he knew where
every sewer pipe, every water pipe,
every valve for both and where
every pipe was needed in town. If
he truly knew this, he was a valu-
able man!
Woody was a whiz at repairing
anything mechanical. '
If Woody couldn't figure it out,
his assistant Joe Badger could!
Joe also claimed to know the
route of every pipe in town and
would tell you, in detail, if only you
would ask him.
Joe "ran" the city for many
years, and he was "Johnny-on-the-
spot," whenever or wherever he


was needed.
The. city got its money's worth
out of Joel
Both Woody and Joe smoked,
Prince Albert in an old pipe. Not
the same pipe, you understand;
each man had his own.
Joe was a'black mahn,who came
along, before the government
enforced equality. Joe made his
own "equal." He couldn't read or
write, but the average person
would never know it. He managed
.very well..

THE OTHER CHARACTER we
had was a police chief by the name
of H. W. "Buck" Griffin. In the last


half of his career, he had~ only one


half of his career, he had. only one
leg. He lost the other one'to cancer;
but it didn't slow him down.
Buck and Joe Badger cooked for
all the special occasions the city
would have for its employees.
The paper mill was 'tax free for
the first 15 years it was in Port St.
Joe, so the city didn't have any
money to pay its employees what
they were worth. What they lacked
in pay, they made up in feeding.
them at just any .occasion-with
Buck and Joe'.doing the cooking.,'
They could cook anything and
make it taste good, from barbe-
cued chicken to steak and chicken
and rice boiled together in an old
cast-iron wash pot. Buck's chicken
and rice was famous and Joe's ,
barbecue sauce was coveted by the
gourmets of the city.
They made a team

BUCK DID SOMETHING else
which was "different" for a police
chief. ,.
If a crime was committed in


town., Buck had a good idea who
committed it, without any investi-
gation. He would tell anybody
,around, 'The next time,you see so-
'and-so, tell therri to come to my
office. I want to see him [her] about
something." .
The message would be passed,
and, sure enough, in a few hours
the person would report in to Buck
at the police station.
He would arrest himselfl .
-Buck never carried a gun or a
pair of handcuffs. He. worked on
the honor system. He would just
saunter up on those crutches, size
a burglary up, and then send for
someone to "come see him."
He operated that way.
S Of- course, crime wasn't as
prevalent back then. It isn't preva-
Slent now i but it is more common
today than it was in the 50s and
60s.


BUCK GARDENED, TOO. He

druggist, gardened on the muck

out by where the wastewater treat-
ment plant is today.
Buck would preside over the
hoeing and plowing, "while seated
on a folding chair puffing on his
pipe.
John Robert would be just dig-
ging away, while Buck kept up a
constant chatter. John Robert
would sweat while Buck "kept his
cool." Then they would half the
produce.
What a deal ... for Buck!
But then, Buck was incapacitat-
ed by that leg being off at the hip.
He had a good excuse for his lack
of action.
Buck had his criminals coming
into the jail to be arrested he
presided over the cooking opera-
tions and he shared in a gar-
dening project-without actually
doing the work,

his sharecroppers

PSJ Switching Retirement

Pier Work Completed; Looking for Grants


Port St. Joe city commission-
ers got the ball rolling to switch
city police officers and other
employees to the State of Florida,
retirement system.
The commission held first
readings on two ordinances which
will terminate its current retire-
ment plans and move funds into
the state retirement system.
Commissioners will consider the
ordinances for adoption during a
special meeting called for June
28th at noon.
Looking For Grant.
Mayor Frank Pate asked the
board to support efforts to seek a
grant to purchase property
between Frank Pate Park and
Shipyard Cove Park for additional
bay front park area. '
He has been in negotiations
with the St. Joe Company to
establish a price for the property
which is a whole city block
between Fourth Street and Cecil
G. Costin, Sr. Boulevard, along


Kesley

with the other members of the
family. I got out a map detailing
the "north country,". and was try-
ing to get my point across using
sign language when Cathy inter-
rupted, "Honey, that won't be nec-
essary, Jo Blair and Gay are com-
ing down next week. And they are
bringing Catherine and Grace."
We're going to have to drive
nails in the wall and hang people
up by their galluses! Someone had
better put in a new food store. A'
big, new food store!, Shades of the
old movie The Monster That Ate
Cleveland begin to flash before my
eyes .
If I can't understand one word
either group is saying ... will they

have been employed as sales exec-
utives for the station.
Staton said, "Keep listening
and within a couple of weeks
when all the bugs have been
worked out, Gulf and Franklin
counties will have a quality radio
presence that all can be proud of."

The board agreed to seek,
grant assistance to purchase the ';.
land.
Pier Work Completed
Townsend Marine has com-
pleted renovation work on the pier
located at Frank Pate Park.
Several pilings had been damaged
by storms over the years and were
in need of repair.
The pier has been a landmark
in St. Joseph Bay for many years,
but had reached the point of
being unusable because of some
of the structural damage.
Townsend Marine has repaired
pilings, trusses, 'and other dam-
aged areas over the past few
weeks.
The ramp was officially
reopened for access sometime
Tuesday afternoon.

Poll

say, if the county returned to at-
large voting, all the other "turf
war" issues would' be mute, since
all Gulf countians would vote on
their representatives.
As I searched out surrounding
counties to see what their redis-
tricting efforts were, only Liberty
County votes at-large. They have a
large prison population, but have
not, to date, considered redistrict-
ing to be an issue.
Franklin County does count
prison inmates using the Census
figures, but has seen almost no
impact since they have only
approximately 250 inmates in the
county.
Calhoun County officials are
still looking at the question. They
formed a committee comprised of
two school board members, two.
commission members, and the
Supervisor of Elections to work on
the question and return a recom-
mendation to the board. Calhoun
has single member district repre-
sentation: they also have a prison
population equalling better than
10% of the population of the coun-
ty, as does Gulf.

Cool Twist On Old Fashioned Dessert Favorite Wins National Recipe Contest


(NAPS)-An updated twist
'on that traditional campfire
classic-S'mores-won Bill
Miller of Woodland Park, CO,
a luxurious getaway for two
to London, Paris and Rome
in the Bays English Muffins
"Great Escape" National
Recipe Contest.
Miller's recipe for "S'Morf-
fins" brought him top hon-
ors from a field of more than
2,000 entries in the 17th year
of this annual recipe contest.
Using ingenuity and only five
ingredients (not including
English muffins, water, salt
and pepper), as called for by
the contest rules, Miller's cre-
ation is a grown-up, con-
temporary interpretation of
that perennial childhood
campfire favorite, S'mores.
His updated version fea-
tures toasted and buttered
English muffins as a crunchy
base, layered with traditional
S'more ingredients: melted.
chocolate bars and toasted
marshmallows. These flavors
are complemented by a scoop
of vanilla ice cream, a driz-
zle of hot fudge sauce and a
sprinkling of toasted walnuts'
for a quick dessert ideal for
any season.
As the grand-prize winner,
Miller will be treated to a 10-
day, first-class trip for two to
Europe with three nights in,
each of three cities: London,
Paris and Rome. His prize
includes personalized sight-


seeing in all three cities, and
dinner at three-star restau-
rants in London and Paris.

ning recipes from this year's
contest, consumers may call

(DM)-There's nothing fishy about this recipe. Whether your taste runs to
swordfish, halibut or sea bass, Grilled Summer Fish Steaks is an easy, deli-
cious entree. To give the steaks a sensational flavor, they briefly marinate in a
savory mixture of Kikkoman Lite Soy Sauce, dry mustard, lemon juice, garlic
and thyme. Lite soy sauce has less sodium than regular brewed soy sauce, yet
retains all of its distinctive flavor enhancing qualities because the salt is
removed after brewing. Baste the fish as it grills with additional sauce to
heighten flavor and retain moistness. For easy accompaniments, grill slices of
seasonal vegetables alongside the steaks and enjoy a great taste of summer.
GRILLED SUMMER FISH STEAKS


2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons Kikkoman Lite
Soy Sauce
I clove garlic, pressed


V2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves,
crushed
IV2 pounds firm white fish steaks
(grouper, snapper or amberjack)


Combine mustard and lemon juice until smooth; gradually stir in lite soy
sauce until blended. Add garlic and thyme; let stand 10 minutes. Pour mixture
over fish in large plastic food storage bag. Press air out of bag; close top
securely. Turn bag over several times to coat fish well. Refrigerate 30 min-
utes, turning bag over once. Reserving marinade, remove fish and place on
gi-ill 8 to 10 inches from hot coals. Cook 5 minutes. Turn fish over; brush with
reserved marinade. Cook 4 to 5 minutes longer, or until fish flakes easily with
fork, turning over occasionally. Makes 4 servings.

Opposes River Agreement


Dear Editor,
Apalachicola does not support
the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-
Flint River (ACF) Basin Compact
which is about to be finalized. A
draft of the agreement was issued
May 25th. The draft will be
received by the Governors of
Florida, Georgia and Alabama on
June 22, 2001. For Florida this
agreement is a big mistake.
Governor Jeb Bush should not
sign this agreement.
The minimum flow allocated
-to Florida in the agreement is not
enough to protect the ecological
health of the Apalachicola River
and Bay, which has been named
one of the most pristine estuaries
in the nation by The Nature
Conservancy. In 1979, the bay
was designated as a National
Research Reserve by the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration. In 1983, the bay
was designated as a World
Biosphere Preserve by the United
Nations. The extraordinary nature
of the Apalachicola River and Bay
has been recognized and desig-:

nated at the state, federal and
international levels. The health of
Apalachicola River and Bay, the
economy of the area 'and the
seafood industries they support
are at risk under this proposal.
The minimum flow allocation
in the agreement was based on 5-
year averages of the lowest
monthly flows from a 55 year his-
torical record. Florida representa-
tives believe that the minimum
flow will be exceeded as a matter.,
of course; however, the agreement
is structured so that Florida's
minimum flow will likely become a
target as Georgia is held to no ,
realistic water use cap. The
Apalachicola River has never
experienced a time in its history
where the flows have been as low
as allowed under this agreement;
The 'flows are not based on what.
Florida needs to maintain the:
health of the river and bay. They
are based on Georgia's unlimited
water needs. "
In the current Florida pro-,
posal the state of Georgia will not .;
suffer any penalties if the agree-
ment is not honored. The Army '
Corps of Engineers who operate ?'
the dams and reservoirs in the
ACF Basin will determine the how
of water. Under the agreement the
Corp's w'vould not be allowed to
consider Flonda s water needs'
other than the minimum flows or
any environmental needs. There is
little reason in the agreement for
Georgia to conserve water. In fact,
Georgia is already seeking perrruits
for 12 more reservoirs along the
Flint River.
Sincerely,.
Anita Gregory (850) 653-9419

That's not to say you should-
n't take advantage of a fast food
place when you must catch a.
quick meal. Nearly every restau-
rant chain offers something that's
healthful and tasty-and just as
fast and cheap as the fatty, salty
foods featured more prominently
on the menu....
Here are some tips: As far as
sandwiches are concerned, small
is better-and skip the sauces and /


cheese. Chicken may sound like a
better choice than hamburger or
roast beef. but make sure that the
chicken is grilled, not deep fried. ,

they include meat, cheese or fatty
dressing.
Instead of high-fat, high-
sodium breakfast specialties !
choose plain toast, packaged cere-
als, and/or orange juice when
available.
Milk-especially low-fat milk
-is available at a surprising num-
ber of restaurants. It provides the
most nutrients for the fewest calo-
ries. Watch out for shakes, which
can have as much fat as whole
milk and as much sugar as a can
of soda pop.
So go ahead-enjoy yourself
this summer when you're "on the
road again." Just don't leave sen-
sible eating habits by the wayside.

Extension Notes

Gulf County Extension Service



Turf Thatch Can


Be A Problem


Thatched lawns causes seri-
ous problems for many Floridi-
ans. Thatch is sneaky, it builds
up out of sight often reaching
damaging levels before you recog-
nize its presence. Thatch is not a
disease.' It's a natural product of
grass growth. If unchecked it can
threaten the health of your entire
lawn.
Thatch, which causes lawns
to become spongy and unthrifty,
is an accumulation of dead and
dying organic matter, old stems,
runners, and leaves. It builds up
between the soil surface and the
actively growing green grass.
Accumulations of thatch
make mowing very difficult. While
providing a home for turf pests,
thatch reduces the effectiveness
of insecticides and fungicides by
restricting their movement into
the soil. Water and air movement
are restricted, causing dry spot
and uneven lawn growth. Satu-
rated thatch; dries slowly, stimu-
lating disease problems.
Thatch is a plant residue
problem. A healthy lawn produces
vegetation very rapidly as long as
production of plant tissue exceeds
the rate of decay thatch will accu-
mulate. Overwatering and over
fertilizing contributes to thatch
building lawn after mowing will,
add to a thatch problem. Failure
to maintain a favorable soil envi-
ronment for bacterial growth
decreases the rate of thatch
decomposition.
SThatch control requires prop-
er lawn management and physical
thatch removal. Only the mini-
mum amount of fertilizer for good'


growth should be applied. Liming
of acid soils may help increase
thatch decomposition by stimu-
lating bacterial action.
Proper watering and mowing
are important. Maximum decom-
position occurs if the soil is moist,
but is retarded if it's too wet or
dry. Lawns should always be
mowed at the recommended
height and frequency. If not more
than one-fourth to one-third of
the leaf tips are removed at each
mowing, thatch seldom increases.,
If thatch becomes a problem,
corrective action should be taken
as soon as a buildup is noticed.
One method is topdressing. That
is applying a layer of new soil over
the lawn. Frequent light applica-
tions are better than one heavy
application. The texture and qual-
ity of the topdressing material
should be as close as possible to
that of the soil on which your
grass is growing.
The other basic method of'
correcting a thatch buildup is ver-,
ticuttmng. As the name suggests.
vertical mowng is a process of
cutting *grass vertically .with a
series, of evenly spaced metal
blades mounted on a steel shaft
.which revolves at high speeds.
The space between the vertical
,blades and their depth of penetra-
tion into the thatch can be varied
to remove as much of the thatch
as desired. Improper spacing, or
cutting too deep can seriously
damage or even kill your lawn. It's
a job for experts. If vertical mow-
ing becomes necessary please
contact an lawn expert service
agency for ass-,istance.

FWC Offers 5-Year Freshwater Fishing License Bonus Package


For the fifth consecutive year,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
will offer anglers a five-year fresh-
water fishing license bonus pack-
age.
Anyone who buys a five-year
freshwater fishing license during
June and July will receive a
bonus package with fishing tackle
and magazines worth more than
the license's cost ($61.50).
Purchase of lifetime licenses and
five-year combination licenses
that include freshwater fishing
privileges also are eligible for this
promotion. In addition, the pack-
age will include special deals and
rebate offers. In effect, you get five
years worth of freshwater fishing
virtually for free.
Bob Wattendorf, of the FWC's
Division of Freshwater Fisheries
said, The bonus package has been
expanded and improved this year
because of the popularity of the
promotion. This year the special
deal will be offered during June
and July, to take advantage of
some of the extra promotional
opportunities associated with
National Fishing and Boating
Week (wwvw.nationalfishingand-
boatingweek.org), which is June
1-10.
"Major manufacturers and
local companies teamed up to
make this offer fr the first time in
1997," Wattendorf said. "The
result was a six-fold increase in
five-year freshwater fishing
license sales. Since then as word
has spread about the offer, we
have sold as many as 12 times the
normal number of licenses during
this promotion. At the same time
tackle manufacturers, publishers
and other participants get to put
their products in the hands of
dedicated anglers who are likely to
spend thousands of dollars during
the next five years on their sport."
This year, lure manufacturers
'such as Berkley, Culprit, DOA,
_ Gary Yamamoto, PRADCO. and
Storm are providing sample lures.
Florida's home-grown Millennium
Twist Fishing System also will be
included in the package. A pack-
age of Daiichi bassworm hooks is
included from Tru-Turn
International, along with Ultra-
Point hooks from Mustad. Sierra
Games will include a functional
demo CD for their most popular
fishing games. A package of
bream hooks is offered by the
North American Fishing Club.


along with a discounted member-
ship offer that opens the door to
other free offers. Bass Pro Shops
is giving away an insulated coffee
mug. Quantum is offering a spe-
cial reel oil in a pen-like dis-
penser.
In addition, popular Florida
fishing destinations are being
highlighted by convention and vis-
itors' bureaus from Central
Florida, Lee Island Coast,
Kissimmee/St. Cloud and
Seminole County each of which
have included a free gift for five-
year license buyers.
Popular magazines like BASS'
"Structure Basics," "Florida
Fishing and Boating," and
"Florida Wildlife" will be included.
Coupons will let you get a free
copy of "Florida Sportsman,"
along with a free pass to one of its
boat shows, and discounted mem-
berships in "The Big Bass Record
Club," and the International


Game Fish Association, both of
which provide free incentives to
join. Phat-Fish eyeware has a free
eyeglass retainer and discount
coupon. Larsen Outdoor Press,
Carlson Tackle and other special
offers sweeten the package. In
addition, Florida LAKEWATCH,
the Division of Freshwater
Fisheries and the Florida Boating
Safety program, are providing
valuable information.
Licenses can be purchased
from an on-line vendor (such as
eAngler.com where a $1.95 sur-
charge applies, and if you act
before June 15 they'll enter you
into a. drawing for a free Cobia
.boat, engine and trailer), through
FWC's instant license number
(call 1-888-FISH-FLOrida, a $3.95
surcharge applies to these credit
card transactions) or at your local
tax collector's office. You can start

ity water and services 'vc dHiver to you. every day Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of
di ikit,1 water. We want you to understand the efforts we make' to continually improve the water treatment process and pro-
trc ,0,,1, water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is -,ond water drawn
from a series of four wells. The wells draw from the Floridan and lhe Sand & Gravel Aquifers.
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 Frank Hall at (850) 648-3002.
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 council meetings. They are held on the second Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM (CST); Mexico Beach
Civic Center.
The City of Mexico Beach routinely monitors for contaminants in vrour 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, for example [unregulated contaminants or lead and copper 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 these 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
water system must follow.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 'million parts by weight ouf' r'
water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/l) one panrr by teigfht of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water
sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
Water Quality Test Results
As you can see by the following table, our system had no violation, We're proud that your drinking water meets or exceeds 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. dos 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 Protecton Agency's Safe
Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. | ,'n
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised
persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplant, people with
HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These.peo-
ple 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).

young athletes the opportunity to
showcase their skills and talents.
Shawna, 14, competed Friday


afternoon in the girl's intermedi-
ate division, which ranges from
ages 15 to 16. With three clean
vaults under her belt, Shawna
went out of the competition with
the bar set at eight feet and six
inches. Her eight foot vault was .
enough to land her the fifth spot.
Stephen waited out of his
competition until the bar was
raised to 12 feet six inches. He
cleared the bar at 14 feet. to gain.a
second place finish and earned -

New Pompano Rules


A new rule, passed by the
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), will limit gill
net fishermen to a 50-mile zone
where they can fish in federal
waters and where they can return
to port with pompano aboard.
"We're trying to address some
of the questions that arise as a
2 result of this new rule," FWC
Chairman David Meehan said.
"It's important that commercial
fishermen and the public under-
stand how it's going to work. We're
distributing fact sheets and tak-
ing other steps to get the word out
quickly."
Under the old rule, pompano
fishermen could fish anywhere in
federal waters and return to port
anywhere in Florida, making it
difficult to enforce the prohibition
on gill net fishing in Florida
waters. Gill nets are legal in fed-
eral waters-nine nautical miles off
shore in the Gulf of Mexico and
three nautical' miles off shore in
the Atlantic. Use of gill nets is pro-
hibited in state waters, but ves-
sels that use them legally in
federal waters could legally return
to port as long as they didn't stop
in state waters.
Meehan said the 50-mile zone
between Cape Sable and
Hurricane Pass in southwest
Florida includes a documented
pompano fishery in federal
waters. m
"We may establish legal zones


in other parts of the state when
we can document more pompano
fisheries in federal waters,"
Meehan said. "The new rule-also
provides that vessels that return
to port in areas outside the zones
will be presumed to have been
fishing in state waters, so it-will be
illegal to possess gill nets and
pompano at the same time."
The new rule places a 250-
fish-per-vessel limit for pompano
caught by licensed commercial
fishermen in state -waters using
hook and line or cast net gear. In
addition, the new rule prohibits
fish dealers from buying more
than 250 pompano per day from
any commercial fisherman unless
the fisherman possesses the per-
mits required to catch pompano
in federal waters.
The new rule, which takes
effect July 1st, also establishes
,criteria for- commercial fishermen
and their vessels to qualify for
licenses to fish for pompano with
gill nets.,
"Hopefully, this new rule is
going to serve the ethical commer-
cial fishermen by ending some of
the illegal pompano fishing in.
state waters .that robs honest,
hard-working fishermen of their
livelihood," Meehan said, "Also, it
ensures that gill netting pompano
in federal waters is limited to gen-
uine commercial fishermen who
can document that they meet the
criteria for this fishery."

A lot of dental problems occur
BETWEEN the teeth. The best

In earlier years, unwaxed floss

Don't be alarmed if you notice
bleeding from the gum lining when
you first start flossing. It means
that the gum lining is ulcerated.
The bleeding should stop after a
few days of flossing. The bleeding
is harmless. Each time you floss in
the beginning, as you bleed, you
are reducing the inflammation. It's
like letting excess air out of an over
filled tire. When enough excess air
is out, the tire rides better. Same-

Hawksbill Turtle Found in St. Joe Bay


by: Barbara Eels
Saturday was a beautiful day
to be out on the bay doing one's
thing, whether it be canoeing,
kayaking, swimming, or just fish-
ingl Fishing is what Andy Smith
and a couple of friends were
enjoying Saturday afternoon.
Andy is a native of Port St.
Joe and knew exactly what he was
seeing when he spotted a small
sea turtle floating around him. He
noticed that this sea turtle didn't
."run" or scoot away from them -
something just wasn't right! As it
turns out, both rear flippers of
this little one were gone except for
two short stubbles, probably as a
result of a small, shark or other


predator that nipped them off
when he was smaller.
Andy called me and when he
said he had a baby sea turtle, I'm
thinking, "How can this be? None
of the nests are even near ready to
hatch around here."
I thought maybe it could be a
hawksbill, but that couldn't be
either because they don't live in
this area.
When I arrived at Andy's
home, I had forgotten my glasses,
but I could see well enough to
know that what they had found
was a juvenile hawksbill sea turtle
about 7.6 centimeters wide and 3
inches long. This turtle also had
two goose barnacles attached to


his carapace, which tells me he
came from the Carribbean Sea or
very southern area of Florida in
the Gulf of Mexico.
There are five sea turtles
native to the Gulf and the
Carribbean: loggerhead, green,
Kemp's Ridley, leatherback and
the hawksbill. The loggerhead is
the most common in our area of


the Gulf. The hawksbill, named so
because of the hawk-like beak,
lives in the Carribbean and lower
Gulf and is rarely seen in these
parts of the northern Gulf of
Mexico.
Hawksbill turtles live -in the
warm waters of the Carribbean
and lower tip of Florida and nest
year round because it's always
warm where they live. There was a
nest on the lower Florida shores
that hatched in December of
2000. This turtle could be of that
size, but no one can say for sure.
They feed in the sargasso
grasses and then venture out to


begin their lives at about six
months old, eating along the
warmer shores and coral reefs.
They feed on sponges, squid, and
other crustacea by using their
beak to pull pieces off and swal-
lowing the food using their mas-
sive tongue. They are an
endangered turtle species as all
are, but in some areas of the
country the loggerhead is on the
threatened list.
Our guess is that the two
hawksbill turtles that have been
found here in the Panhandle (one
a little larger was found on
Panama City Beach by tourists
later last week) was moved along
by tropical storm Allison as they
were in the sargasso grasses, and,
there may have been others as
well.
; .,,Sea turtle hatchlings seek out
these sargasso grasses once they
reach the water and live there
about six months of their lives.
The grasses abundant with
food for the hatchlings: tiny
shrimp, jellyfish, crabs, etc.
.,These beds are a floating
nursery for all kirids, of species of
animal, life where they all fit into
the chain of life. Grass beds break
away from larger areas and roll
onto shore carrying inhabitants
with it; Once onshore it provides
nutrients and food for all kinds of
wildlife: birds, small mammals,
crabs, ghost crabs, fish, sand
fleas (sand moles) etc.
Andy and his friends' little
hawksbill is in the pool with the
other one now at Gulf World
Marine Park in Panama City
Beach and swimming around all
over the place. They will be
checked by the marine vetenanan
and then after rehab time, will
most likely be taken to the


warmer Carribbean waters or to
the lower Gulf of Mexico where it


will be at home with others of its
species, the hawksbill.

H urrican es 101 ...Learn About Nature's Most Powerful Storms


Hurricanes are nature's most
severe storms. High winds, clouds,
and rain move around the calm
center, the eye of the hurricane.
Next to the eye are the strongest
winds which make up the eye wall.
These winds swirl around the eye in
a counter-clockwise motion at
speeds anywhere from 74 to 200
mph. Hurricane season runs from
June 1 to November 30, with
August, September and October as
the busiest months of the season.
In the summer and late fall, the air
over the ocean warms up consider-
ably, picks up moisture and begins
to move in a circular motion, form-
ing a tropical depression. If the
wind speed accelerates above 39


ously high water and very rough
seas, are expected in, a specific
coastal area within 24 hours. When
a hurricane warning is issued, all
precautions should be completed
immediately. If the hurricane's path
is unusual or erratic, the warning
may be issued only a few hours
before the beginning of hurricane
conditions.

A hurricane watch is issued
when there is a threat of hurricane,
conditions within 24 to 36 hours. A,
hurricane warning is issued when
there is a threat of hurricane condi-:
tions within 24 to 36 hours. A hur-
ricane warning is issued when hur-
ricane conditions (winds of 74 mph
or greater or dangerously high
water and rough seas) are predicted
in 24 hours or less.
Take the following steps during
a hurricane watch:
* Continue to monitor conditions
with a battery-operated radio or '
television.
Gather emergency supplies:
flashlights, extra batteries,
portable. battery-operated radio


and extra batteries, first aid kit
and manual, non-perishable
food, fresh water, manual can
opener, .essential medicines,
cash, credit cards, important
papers, identification, and stur-
dy shoes.
* Stay away from low-lying beach-
es or other places where high
tides or storm waves can reach.
Storm surges cause most hurri-
cane-related deaths. If your
escape route is over a road or
bridge likely to be under water,
evacuate before a warning is
issued.
Board up windows or pro-
1 : tect them with storm shut-
- ters. Use strong bracing
for outside doors. 3/4-
inch plywood for doors.
Secure loose objects in your
yard, such as patio furniture
and bicycles. Anchor them or
move them indoors.
Fill your bathtub with extra
water for flushing the toilet.
Fill your car with gas and make
sure you have jumper cables.
If you live in a mobile home,
leave immediately for a sturdier
shelter.
Moor your boat securely or move
it to a safe area. Don't return for
it until winds and tides have
diminished.
When a hurricane warning.is
issued, the stakes become higher.
both for lives and property. Unless
you're ordered to evacuate, stay
home indoors and away from win-
dows and glass doors. Try to keep
near the downwind side of the
house.
If you live in a high rise, check
with your building manager to
determine whether it can withstand
high waves and strong winds.
Don't be fooled when the wind
dies down. You may be in the "eye"
of the storm, only, a temporary
calm. The worst part of the storm
often occurs after the eye passes
over and the winds come from the
opposite direction. Tornadoes often
occur in the wake of hurricanes.
Remain inside, in the center of
your, bome until you're sure the
danger has passed. Most important.


listen closely to announcements
and government emergency

St. Joe Co. Continues to Repurchase Shares from duPont Trust


The St. Joe Company recently
announced that the Alfred I.
duPont Testamentary Trust ("the
Trust"), the majority of the stock-
holder of the company, and the
Trust's primary beneficiary, The
Nemours Foutdation, agreed to
participate in the St. Joe stock
repurchase program for a third
consecutive 90-day period..
Through this agreement, the
Trust will continue to sell to St.
Joe each Monday a number of
shares equal to 1.5 times the
amount of shares St. Joe pur-
chased from the public dunng the
previous week. The Trust shares
will be purchased at a price
exactly equal to the volume
weighted average week. However.


no shares will be sold by the Trust
if that week's average price of
shares repurchased by St. Joe is
below $22 per share.
"We are very pleased that the
Trust has agreed to continue to
support St. Joe's on-going stock
repurchase program for this third
consecutive 90-day term," said
Peter S. Rummell, St. Joe chair-
man and CEO. "More than ever,;
we are convinced that the com-
pany's value is not fully reflected
in our current stock price. and
through this stock repurchase
program. wte can continue to
dealer value to shareholders."
'"St. Joe's management team
is now tightly focused on the com-
pany's unique real estate assets.


and we are confident that this
team has developed a strategy
that positions St. Joe to deliver.
value to shareholders," said
Winfred L. Thornton, chairman of
the Trust. "We are pleased with
the direction and progress that St.
Joe management is making. The
Trust's holdings in St. Joe
remains one of our most impor-
tant assets, and we see the stock
repurchase program as an .effec-
tive tool to increase per share
\alue. \Ve continue to be pleased
to participate on a pro-rata basis."
As we have stated before. we
will continue to evaluate all
investment alternatives and
implement those that contribute
most to shareholder value," said


Kevin M. Twomey, St. Joe presi-
dent and COO. "Our objective
remains to compound value for
shareholder in a number of differ-
ent ways."
The Alfred I. duPont
Testamentary Trust of
Jacksonville was established
'under the last will and testament
of Alfred I. duPont in 19,35 to
establish and benefit The


Nemours Foundation, a charitable
hospital foundation.
The St. Joe Company, a pub-
licly held company based in
Jacksonville, is Florida's largest
real estate operating company. It

Choosing the Right Contractor After a Disaster


Home repairs are a fact of life
after a disaster. The American Red
Cross would like to inform citi-
zens about some of the potential
problems associated with home
improvements and repairs.
Following are some general guide-
lines and cautions to assist cus-
tomers in dealing with" home

contractors.
How to Find a Reputable and
Reliable Contractor
Beware of con-artists. They
may target the elderly, unin-
formed and the young and inexpe-
rienced. They may solicit
door-to-door claiming to have


Allstate
lu,,S ,, ,: r:l" ,


"just finished a job down the
street." Be very suspicious if they
offer for you only if you will obtain
any necessary building permits,
which makes you responsible for
the work done.
Check to see if your contrac-
tor has fulfilled the professional
and occupational licensing
requirements established by your
,city, county and the Florida
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation.
Determine how long a con-
tractor has been in business. You
may, wish to check with local


building supply retailers. An
established contractor with a rep-
utation for using quality materials
and paying bills with suppliers is
more likely to do quality work for
you.
Check with the Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation (complaints/licensing,
800-342-7940) to determine if
complaints have been filed
against the contractor or to check
on the individual's state license.
After checking a complaint his-
tory,, consider everything you have
learned before hiring a contractor.

ol ,


Ask for references of persons
for whom the contractor has done
work and check them out.
Narrowing the Field
Choose several contractors
and obtain a written estimate
from each. Explain what you want
done, specifying such items as the
quality and type of materials.
Bring the estimates to your
adjuster or agent to verify the
proper procedure you must follow
to insure payment of the claim.
Obtain : detailed estimates
from several contractors for mate-
rial specifications, how long the
job will take and the total cost.
Be suspicioLs of a contractor
who offers the fastest, cheapest
job on a "you must act now" basis.
Poor workmanship, inferior mate-
rials and unfinished jobs are often
the result. Get the agreement in
writing.
Before Signing the Contract
Read it carefully. Ask for legal
explanations and clarifications;
understand what you are signing.
Fill in all blanks. Consult
your insurance agent to see if the
repairs are covered by your insur-
ance.
Be sure the contract includes:
contractor's name, address, tele-
phone number and professional
license number; precise descrip-
tion of work to be completed and
materials to be supplied; con-
struction completion date: any
financing information that is
required by law or that is part of
the transaction; any warranty
agreements; and all necessary
building permits or licenses.
Make sure the lob site will be

plaint form. Complete the form

General Tips
Avoid any contractor who
requires advance, payment,
Arrange to pay after the work is
completed or in regular payments.
Don't sign the work comple-
tion certificate until all work is
completed to your satisfaction.
Avoid paying cash.
If you are financing the
improvement or repair, compare
the interest rates and payments of
several lending institutions, espe-
cially if you are considering a sec-
ond mortgage to finance
improvements.
If your contract exceeds
$2,500, you should become famil-
iar with the Fl6rida Construction
Lien Law. A notarized release of
lien will help ensure that you will
not have to face double payment
or possible loss of property to the
unpaid parties. For more informa-
tion you may obtain a copy of the
Florida Department of Business
and Professional Regulation
brochure on the topic by writing

Millionth Man

Registers On-Line

with Selective Service
The Selective Service System
registered its one millionth man
via the internet when 18-year-old,
David Edmond Lucitt from
Haymarket, Virginia, successfully
registered at 2:30 p.m. ET,
Monday, June 11th.
"David Lucitt represents the
best spirit of America's young
men, men who guarantee
America's strength with responsi-
bility, commitment, and patrio-
tism,"' said Alfred V. Rascon,.
Director of Selective Service.
Lucitt is home schooled and
plans to attend college in fall
2002. Like thousands of young
men every day, Lucitt, an "Eagle
Scout Candidate," simply logged
onto the Selective Service web site
at www.sss.gov, keyed in some
basic information, and instantly
received his Selective Service reg-
istration number. Men can also
register' at any local post office by
completing a simple registration
card, or they may fill out and
return a card they may.get in the
mail.
Currently, initernet registra-
tion is the easiest and fastest
method for young men to register.
Approximately 9,000 internet reg-
istrations are received each week,
since Selective Service inaugu-
rated the on-line registration pro-
gram onrt December 2nd, 1998. In
addition to the internet registra-
tions, almost 30,000 other regis-
trations arrive at the Selective
Service Data Management Center
in Illinois every week.
Federal law requires virtually
all men to register with Selective
Service within 30 days of turning
18. All U.S. male citizens, no mat-
ter where they reside, as well as
male noncitizens residing in the
U.S., are required to register.
Although late registrations are
accepted, a man cannot register
once he reaches 26. Moreover,

More than half of the 'states
have enacted legislation that links
benefits such as state tuition
assistance and eligibility for state
jobs to registration. Also, eight
states have en acted legislation,
connecting Selective Service regis-
tration with a man's application
for a driver's license. Additionally,
male immigrants who are in the
U.S. when they are 18 through 25
years old may be denied U.S.
Citizenship if they fail to register.
By having the names and
addresses of men ages 18 through
25 on file with the Selective
Service System, America-remains
ready to face any threat. Millions
of young men have registered
since registration was reinstituted
in 1980, but none has been
