unday
Sunday, July 1st. will kick off,
another scallop season in St.
Joseph Bay and across the state
of Flonda.
Seekers of this succulent
mollusk generally buy a new cal-
endar and begin counting the
days till the next season as each
year passes by. But. recent years
have not been quite so prolific for
scallopers as numbers have dwin-
.-. died and ittfhas beconme--increas-
Ingly hard to collect opough scal-
lops to do more than just tempt a
person's taste buds.
Most of the blame for lower
numbers is cast on red tide occur-
rences in St. Joseph Bay the past
few years. Red tide does kill scal-
lops and numbers have been
dreadfully low.
Recent surveys by the Flonda
Manne Research Institute have
brought some ray of hope to those
in fear that numbers might go
below the charts this season.
Those surveys actually count the
scallops in transect gnds (600
square meter sections of bay bot-
tom) and record what is found.
The results indicate that on
average 10 scallops were found
per transect. This is much greater
than last year's 12000) survey
which found only four scallops
per transect on average.

Mayor Frank Pate, Heidi Rice and Sandra Chafin


First Shovel Turned For



McDonald's Construction
.
'"~ ~ :"1 , ,,4


The first shovel of dirt was
turned for the construction of
McDonald's restaurant Tuesday
morning as local residents gath-
ered to welcome the new owners;
Half of the husband and wife
ownership team, Heidi Rice, was
present for the ceremonies as she
and Port St. Joe Mayor Frank
Pate Jointly turned the first dirt
officially beginning the project.
Heidi told those present that
her husband, Paul Hebert, is cur-
rently at sea and is employed as a
marine engineer aboard a com-
mercial ship. Both, are looking for-
ward to moving to Port St. Joe
and becoming an integral part of
the community.
Joel Stengel, Venture
Construction Company, said folks
will not have to wait long to begin
seeing construction activity at the
site. In fact, he predicted that
work would be underway on site
preparation, by the end of this
week.
Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director
Sandra Chafin's welcoming oracle
was interrupted briefly by an
"unscheduled" flyover of Tyndall's
jet aircraft. She and Mayor Pate
welcomed Heidi and Paul to the
community and wished them suc-
cess in their venture.
Sandra also gave a brief.his-
tory of the McDonald's franchise
and how one of the founders, Ray
Kroc, helped start the chain from
a single restaurant in California
after his investment in the five-
spindle milkshake maker called a
multimixer.
Heidi said their plans were to
continue the McDonald's tradition
of cleanliness, outstanding ser-


vice, and community involvement.
The target date for the grand
opening of the restaurant is
September of this year.
Chafin also told those pre-
sent that Ronald McDonald's
smile is known around the world
and his name is second only to
Santa Claus in terms of recogni-
tion .. (I wonder if he's going to
be here for the grand opening in
September?)

Early Morning

Fires In Wewa
Two structure fires occurred
within minutes of each other dur-
ing the early morning hours of
June 22nd.
The first of the two fires was
called in at 4:25 a.m., and initial-
ly reported as a woods fire just
past the cemetery. As it turned
out, Wewahitchka and Dalkeith
Volunteer Fire Departments were
dispatched, but they arrived at
the scene to find the Cypress
Lodge main house fully engulfed
in flames.
I The house was a total 'loss,
and the State Fire Marshall was
called to work the fire investiga-
tion.
At 4:41 a.m., another call was
received. This call involved a
mobile home off Old Dairy Farm
Road. Dalkeith Fire Department
was sent to the blaze.
The initial investigation by,
the State Fire Marshall reportedly
indicated an electrical short in the
wall of the structure caused the
blaze. Both fires occurred during
the time heavy thunderstorms
were passing through Gulf
County.

A "Destination Inn"



Why Not?

It was great news to report in last week's edition of The Star that
St. Joe Motel has been purchased and is going to be restored.
Numerous people have commented to me about the story and as
far as I can recollect every one of them stated they were pleased the
motel was going to be restored as one of our area's historic buildings.
The good news is the new owners, David and Trish Warriner, have
plans for the building that are basically the same as when the Port Inn
occupied the same space way back in 1909.
I'm looking forward to the day this facelift will be complete. David
Warriner is in hopes that significant progress on this venture will be
made by the end of this year.
As I discussed future plans with David, I remembered the last trip
I made to Wakulla Springs-several years ago-and how the motel at
the springs etched a lifelong memory in my mind as I stepped back in
time.
St. Joe Motel has the same potential. Just as Wakulla Springs pro-
vides an outstanding backdrop for newlyweds, honeymooners,
anniversary celebrations, reunions, etc., etc., etc ..... Wakulla Springs
ain't got nothing on us.
St. Joseph Bay, the parks, the beaches, and let's not forget the
fishing .. It doesn't take much of an imagination to see St. Joe Motel
as one of thgs area's "destination inns."
Quality lodging is a target item of need in Gulf County and is the
focus of all of the tourist and economic development arms of the coun-
ty (TDC, EDC, and chamber), not to mention local government. Not
only will this refurbishing effort bring quality lodging, but you will like-
ly be able to add words like unique, special, distinctive, different, and
historic as one describes the lodging.'
Good luck on your venture, David and Trish, and thanks for mak-
ing this investment!


Don't Forget To Send


Us Your Survey!

Response to our resident survey has been good and we will con-
tinue to run it for a few more weeks.
One thing I didn't anticipate was that many folks are not really
interested.in cutting up-the front.pages-of their "Star" to fill out the sur-
vey. I gues's I can understand that I kind'aget -personally attached to
them also. ....
For any of you who might have missed the information in our last
edition, we are conducting an informal survey concerning redistricting.
The major issues at hand are should we count our prison inmate
population when considering where to draw the new redistricting lines.
Florida law is not clear on this issue and the Florida Attorney General'
has. been asked to give his opinion, but even that is not binding
because there is no case law in the area. This question gets even more
complicated when you take into account that better than 10% of Gulf's
population consists of prison inmates.
Another interesting issue is should the Gulf County School Board
and the Gulf County Commission work together and continue to keep
like district boundary lines for voting purposes. Also included as ques-
tion number 'three is the question of skirting District 4's boundaries
along a narrow path along Highway 98 to connect to Cape San Bias
and Indian Pass around District 5 in order to include that area in
District 4.
The last question returns to the age old question should we
return to at-large voting, rather that: single member district voting as
we currently do? Gulf voters via refei'endum overwhelmingly (over 780 o)
voted to return to at-large voting several years ago. Under the at-large
process, all Gulf voters would vote on all five county commission seats
as they come up for re-election'coiinty-wide.
Survey questions can be found on page 3A of this issue of The
Star.


One 4th of July Squeaky
Ridinger came to town with a sack
full of cherry bombs. I'd heard
about these extra "high powered"
firecrackers, but I'd never seen one
in action. While Police Chief Aaron


Pinson was busy rounding up vol-
unteers for the parade, we slid out
to the open field behind the train
staLton for some testing.
"How far back do we need to
stand?'
"Way back-this thing will
knock you down if you're too
close!" .
I hunkered over Squeaky till
he touched the match to the fuse,
then I "lit a shuck" of my own back
toward the station. I belly flopped
into the weeds, rolled over onto my


knees and squinted back. expect-
ing to see the explosion of a life-
time.
Nothing happened! No flames.
no deafening noise, no rising
smoke.
Squeak peered out from
behind his telephone pole and
whispered,,"It must a'been a dud."
We started timidly and cau-
tiously back toward ground zero. I,
didn't know much about cherry
bombs, .but I didn't want to get
blown: up .by faulty wiring, a


delayed fuse, slow igniting TNT. a
trickster at the firecracker factory,.

I covered my face and took a
quick peep, risking one eye, as we
neared the explosive device.
"Squeak, you didn't light the fuse!"
No wonder it didn't go off! I quick-
ly realized something here, having
a sack full of cherry bombs and.
knowing anything at all about
them are two different things!
He extended the matches.
.toward me. Listen, I'd heard tell'
that a cherry bomb could blow
your whole hand off! "Naw,
Squeak, you brought 'em, you light
'em."
We lingered long enough this.
time to see the fuse ignite. We did-
n't linger any longer I just
made it to my spot when the thing
exploded. It was loud, but not
thunderous. It blew a little crater
in the ground, but, nothing spec-
tacular. There was the smell of
burnt powder and some smoke,
but no billowing clouds. I was
somewhat disappointed. I had
expected a lot more. There was a
little grass fire, but we quickly
stomped that out.
We started back to the town
square. It was Independence Day.,
Sack races. Apple bobbing. A
marching band. Watermelons.
galore. Flags everywhere. Ice cold';
lemonade.. And a parade, if Mr.
Pinson could get some cooperation

We were thirteen years old and
had a sack full of cherry bombs. It
was a very special holiday and all
the trimmings were in place. I'm
not sure we understood at the
time-but life couldn't get any bet-
ter!
Then ,we ran into Buddy,
Wiggleton. "Exploding 'em out in,
the air won't do any good. You've
got to put that bomb into some-
thing to get the full effect."
.We ran down Walnut Street,
past the Park Theater, to the first
house we came to with a mail box.
We slowed and walked as inno-..
cently as we could around that tiui
mail receptacle a couple of times.;
We glanced both ways up and,
,down Walnut stealthily checking to
see if the "coast was clear." I
opened the lid. Squeak lit the fuse.
Buddy tossed the cherry bomb in.
I slammed the door shut and we
took off like three wild mustangs
trying to outrun the wind!
We leaped behind: Mrs.
Mitchum's hedge about the time of
the explosion. Folks, it blew the lid
right off of the box! And bent the
sides. And I can still see to this
very day the,smoke belching out of
that thing!
I worried momentarily about
the damage. And the cost of a new
mail box. And what my Daddy
would do if he found ,out., Hey, it
was the 4th of July! It was. a fun
day. We were supposed to show
some of that independent spirit so

The Mountains In Springtime-As Fine As In The Fall!


I WAS GONE TO visit in the ".
mountains of North Carolina,
Tennessee and North Georgia last
week. It was the first time I had
gone 'to the mountains in the
springtime. My numerous visits
had previously been made in the
fall of the year.
Let me tell you. now; if you
have never been in the springtime,
you have missed sornethingl
Everything is lush and green.
The streams alongside the moun-
tain roads are full and rushing
downhill in a beautiful cascade of
water. The countryside is covered
with flora even more lush and
green than it is here in Florida.
Every little town is geared up
to accommodate the tourists-
from the tiny hamlets to the larg-
er cities.: My favorite "hamlet" is
Dillard, Georgia, and it is no
longer a "hamlet." A four lane
highway runs through it now and
the shops are running over with
things to buy.


DILLARD IS ALSO the home
of my favorite restaurant-the
Dillard house-and we didn't
neglect to visit it, either.
Our center of operations was
in Franklin, North Carolina,
where we were guests at the
James Horton family's mountain-
top home'.
We started out Tuesday by
taking a trip to Highlands,
Cashiers, Silva, and all the points
in between. We also went to
Dillsboro and had. dinner at the
Jarrett House restaurant. Our
chauffeur's son, Austin and his
travelling companion, Kale
Guillot, came across a groundhog


on the hillside beside the parking
lot, and proceeded to chase him
up the hill until he disappeared.
The food at the Jarrett House
was plain and very good! You can
order one of three entrees and you
get a variety of vegetables with it.

WEDNESDAY, WE TOOK a
trip to Cherokee, Gatlinburg' and
Pigeon Forge, where we dined at
the Apple Barn and had some of '
their homemade fried apple pies. i
The Apple Barn site is in the
middle of an apple orchard and
makes all kinds of apple candies
and pastries. Of course, they have
their "store" too. It's an old barn


which has been renovated, with a,
restaurant on the side.
The .main restaurant is to one'
side of the barn, in an old dwelling
house which has been added to.
People flock to this place in
droves.
One of your first impressions
is that this is some expensive real
estate to take up with an apple
orchard. The flocks of folks which
come there sort of help pay the
taxes on that expensive real
estate.
As we were leaving
Gatlinburg, and just getting on
the cross-the-mountain parkway,
we ran into the darndest hail-
storm' we have ever been in. It
hailed for all of 20 minutes, with
hail as big as a marble. We pulled
off onto a pull-off parking space,
under a huge tree, and rode out
the storm.
We had to stop in Cherokee
for Kale to buy his mother some
"Heavenly Chocolate." It had quit
raining by this time and the sun


was out again. Before it was all
over, we all had to have some'
"Heavenly Chocolate"!

WE SAVED THE best until
last.. We went. to Dillard on
Thursday, spent a half a day there
and ate at the Dillard House.
If you have never eaten there,
you owe yourself the experience.
That's what it is-an experience
Don't tell Dr. Curry, but I ate
some of everything! From home-
made muscadine preserves to sev-
eral meat and vegetable dishes. I
even had a full glass of teal I com-
pletely forgot there are certain
foods I shouldn't eat and things I
shouldn't drink. I let it all hang
out, and you would, too, if you
could have seen that spread!
We were seated at an eight-
place table and every available
inch of it was filled with a dish of
food ... good food!
We started back home Friday
and didn't go back through
Atlanta nor Columbus. We came


home via Macon, and were both-
ered with much less traffic and
better scenery!

WHEN WE' ARRIVED at The
Star office on Thursday, to set
this blurb for the paper, we found
that we had mail waiting for us.
Mitch Taylor, one of the trans-
plants from up Atlanta way, who
now resides at the south beach,
had been by and left us a couple
of books.
I had reported a few weeks
ago about having read Ferroll
Sams' book, Ride With the
Horsemen. Well, Mr. Taylor
brought me the other two of Dr.
Sams' trilogy he had written on
the life of the mythical Porter
Osborne, Jr.
The books take Porter from
his pre-kindergarten days
through his hitch in the army and
tell of his many tricks he pulled
on the many people he met along
the way. I'm enjoying them!

Representatives from the
Florida Department of Transpor-
tation paid a visit to the Board of
County Commissioners a few
weeks ago and, in a nutshell, said
a whole lot of roadwork was being
planned for the county.
By the time the FDOT pro-
grams and the new county road
bond issue kicks into high gear, ,it
will be hard to travel very far on
Gulf County roads without seeing
some kind of road work under-
way. This is already evident to
anyone traveling on Highway 71
to or from Wewahitchka and Port
St. Joe.
The Cypress Creek Bridge
replacement project is underway.,
Preliminary work has started and
includes building access to a
detour under construction
around the bridge. A temporary
bridge will take 30 to 45 days to


complete and the entire project is
expected to be underway for
approximately one and one-half
years.
Fairchild Florida Construc-
tion Company is the contractor on
the job and C. W. Roberts
Contracting, Inc. is a sub-con-
tractor on much of the prep work
for the bridge construction.
Traffic will be switching to the
temporary detour bridge when it
is completed in late July or
August.
Further north on Highway 71,
the West Arm Bridge will soon be
undergoing the same process. In
mid-July, work %ill begin to build
a temporary bridge around the
current structure by the same two
contractors. It is expected to take
approximately eight months to
complete this bridge project from

the fun Ben Franklin would have
had with a couple, of well placed
cherry bombs ....
I turned to question the
,destruction with Buddy and
Squeak-they were already moving
.back up the street, looking for new
bombing sites.
We .borrowed a watermelon
from the stack over by the fire
engine and eased into the alley
behind Lindsey's Rexall Drugstore.
It didn't take but a second to bore
out the right size hole-we lit the
fuse and rolled the melon down the
Shill toward the parking lot. The
cars withstood the explosion pret-
ty well. Mr. Blankenship's matched
set of( dapple gray "parade ready"
mules didn't fair as well .. .
We dropped one down the bar-
rel of the World War I cannon that
guarded the town square. It made
enough noise to interrupt the pie
eating contest-but it didn't even
make that old gun flinch. I reckon.
it had seen worse.

potato salad, baked beans, cole'
slaw and corn on the cob,,they did-


n't even notice when the projectile
exploded. They'd just assumed one
of 'em burped!
We "set up" on three different
corners, when the parade started.
We were going to attempt a never
heard of synchronized, "triple
bomb" attack on the cavalcade.
Squeaky made Uncle Sam jump
three feet in the air. Buddy tried to
liven up the high school marching
band, but his bomb didn't go off.
Mine rolled across the street and
set fire to the grass in the field next
to Mr. Woodrow Kennon's
Drygoods, Mercantile and Grocery
Store. And our only fire truck was
busy up at the front of the proces-
sion hauling watermelons, flags,
and children .
I told you this day was special.
We celebrated! It was much more
than just a day off, a chance to go
to town, a caramel covered apple
or a silly ole firecracker. It was a
day that reeked with freedom. It
smacked of Independence. It was
fraught with liberty.
We had the time of our lives
because of what this day stood
for!
We were young and mischie-
vous and adventuresome and from
therbackwoods and naive but,
we caughtthe spin just like some
earlier Americans ....
Hope You Do Too!

Building Official Michael L.
Hammond prepared a worksheet
outlining some of the work being
done under the current road bond
issue which will soon be bid or
waiting to be paved.
Several grants have been
approved that require various
amounts of matching local dollars
or are 100% funded by grants.
One of those roads is nearly:
two miles of roadway that is being
constructed from Highway 71 to.
Gulf County Shipbuilding, just
south of White City. C. W. Roberts
Contracting, Inc. was by far the
low bidder for this project, and
will be proceeding with paving
within the next few weeks.
I The county is also receiving
matching fund grants to. resurface
the Industrial Road, a portion of
the Doc Whitfield (Howard Creek)

Professional wine tasters do not treat

even fun at times, since they do have
to. to dissect, in minutest detail, every
sip of every wine. It's their job.
You, on the other hand are not
.1 accountable to anybody but
yourself. Without such seriousness,
there are some key factors to look for
while sampling wine. You certainly don't have to like what
is considered excellent wine, but you should have an appre-
ciation for why it is considered such. Also, it makes drink-
ing better wines a much deeper, richer experience.

And what are you looking for in evaluating wine?
Appearance first, then smell, impression in the mouth, total

Scallop Season


For those with a good memo-
ry this is close to the number
found in the bay in 1998. This is
a great improvement from previ-
ous results, but it's also a far cry
short of the numbers counted
during bumper crop years folks
are accustomed to seeing in the
bay. Just a few years ago, an
average count greater than 250
scallops per transect was the-
norm for research teams.
The highest area surveyed
early in June showed counts of
167 scallops per transect.
Unfortunately, there were also
many sites where no ("0") scallops


etc~c6 o


g f


were found in a transect.
Scallopers should take note of
the low levels and try to be as con-
servative as possible in their har-
vest plans, while paying close
attention to harvesting regula-
tions.
Eckley Sander of Presnell's
Bayside Marine & RV Resort and
several local scallopers have
reported sightings in the bay.
Larger numbers were found in the
head of the bay. Counts are very
spotty in others areas of the bay.

Wonder Bar

Revives "Jam" Night
In years past, the Wonder Bar
was known for its "Sunday Jam
Sessions," where area music profes-
sionals and aspiring musicians
could gather and swap licks and
stories. The Wonder Bar would like
to invite all area musicians to come
in on Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m.
and jam with the Buddy Hamm
Band.
"Gulf County has always been a
great source of musical talent. It's
one thing to sit at home and prac-
tice, but it's exciting to sit in with
music professionals and perform.
We want to provide a venue, that
gives young musicians the ability to
come and perform with veterans
and exercise their talent. It's also
rewarding for the veterans to be
able to pass on tips to aspiring
musicians," said Tony Whitfield,
proprietor of the Wonder Bar.
A parent or guardian must
accompany musicians under the
age of 21.

Patrick W. Tousignant, 19, of

charged with battery on June

engine is pollution, this 22% of
each gallon would normally burn
when it reaches the platinum of the
catalytic converter.
Unfortunately, the converter's
platinum burns this fuel in the
tailpipe, where,the heat and energy
produced from burning this fuel
cannot be harnessed to drive 'your
vehicle. ,
But when the Gas Saver adds
platinum to the air-fuel mixture,
22% more of each gallon burns
inside the engine so that 22%
fewer gallons are required to drive
the same distance.
After studying this process for
five years, the government
concluded: "Independent testing
shows greater fuel sa\ ings \% ith the


Gas Saver than the 22% claimed
by the developer.".
In addition to this government
study, the Gas Saver has received
patents for cleaning out the carbon
deposits and raising octane, making
premium fuel unnecessary for most
vehicles.
Joel Robinson, the developer,
commented: "Almost a half
million Gas Savers have been sold.
To, our surprise, as many people
buy the Gas Saver because it
extends engine life (by cleaning
out the abrasive carbon deposits)
as buy it to increase gas mileage or
to raise octane."

BOSTON National Fuelsaver
Corp. of Boston has developed a
low cost automotive accessory
called the Platinum Gas Saver
which is guaranteed to increase
gas mileage by 22% while meeting
all emission standards.
With a simple connection to a
vacuum line, the Gas Saver adds
microscopic quantities of platinum
to the air-fuel mixture entering the
engine.
Platinum has the unique ability
to make non-burning fuel burn.
With platinum in the flame zone,
you increase the percentage of fuel
burning in the engine from 68% of

time together; there is a canasta

new movies together; 'they dine out
and at each others' homes; and
they vigorously continue the won-

developed over twenty years-when
their husbands were alive and they
all six went everywhere and did
everything together.
One of the big questions which
arises for each of the ladies is
whether they should allow romance
and a possible second marriage into
their lives. Would that affect their
relationship with each other?
A great deal about life, love,
friendship, individuality and happi-

Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) will be hosting two
seminars in Tallahassee and
Panama City for military retirees
regarding the new Tricare for Life
program. Congressman Boyd has
extended an open invitation to all
military retirees and their families
throughout the 2nd Congressional
District to join him at one of these
two seminars.
Tricare for Life is the new mili-
tary retiree health care benefit that
Congress enacted last year which
provides permanent lifetime Tricare
eligibility beginning on October Ist.
General information about the new
benefits available to retirees, their
family members and survivors will
be presented at the seminars.
The first seminar will take place
Monday, July 2nd at 2:00 p.m. ET,
at the Tallahassee Community
College auditorium.

Paving

-From Page 3
Gulf Correctional Institution will
be paved in .its entirety-also from
matching grant funds. Some of
the matching portion will be done
in the form of in-kind county
work on the roadways, which will
give the county even more mileage
for taxpayer's bucks. Some
matching funds will require pay-
ment for a small percentage of the
work and the state will finance
the remaining portion.
It also appears that ea d..f
the five board members will
receive a little more than
$200,000 to finance resurfacing
and paving needs inside of their
districts. The actual road bond
issue is for 3.282 million dollars,
but the amount of paving will far
exceed these figures because of
the inclusion of grant funds.
The bonds will be repaid
through gas tax funds returned to
the county and used for road
paving purposes.

2000 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report


Lighthouse Utilities Company, Inc.
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the qual-
ity water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of
drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and pro-
tect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water
Our water source is ground water from two wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer.
This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact James Simmons at (850) 227-7427.
We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility.
Lighthouse Utilities Company, Inc. 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, and/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 orMCL: 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 (mgy/) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by, weight of
the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the
S 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% confidence. (Only needed for
Unregulated contaminants).
PPA requires monitoring of over 80 drinking water contaminants. Those contaminants listed in the table below are the only
contnaminanti detected in your drinking water.

2000 TEST RESULTS TABLE

** Results in the Level Detected column for radiological contaminants, inorganic contaminants, synthetic organic
contaminants including pesticides and herbicides, and volatile organic contaminants are the highest average at any
of'the sampling points or the highest detected level at any sampling point, depending on the sampling frequency.

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, %t 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.
Coinranim, n'.:s 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. r
(B) Inorganic comramiinianmn, 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 farmifig.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, whichmay 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.
MCLs are set at very stringent levels. To understand the possible health effects described for many regulated contaminants, a
person would have to drink 2 liters of water every day at the MCL level for a lifetime to have a one-in-a-million chance of
having the described health effect.
Some people mayJie more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-com-
promised person4such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ trans-
plants, people widw 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 contam-
inants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
lighthouse Utilities Company, Inc. 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.

Bonfires, Bangers

and Barbecues
Have a great time with family
and friends this Independence Day,
but don't spoil the party with an
accident. Just take a few sensible
precautions.
Bonfires
Children should be, supervised:
One person should be responsible
for the bonfire.
Choose a site away from wood-
en fences, sheds and well away
from where children will be playing.
Never pour petrol or meths onto
a fire, it's safer to use fire lighters to
prevent flare-ups.
Keep a bucket of water handy
in case of an accident.
Avoid loose clothing and .tie
back long hair.
After the party pour water on
the fire, rather than leaving it to
burn out.
Sparklers
These are often viewed as
harniless but they do burn at fierce
temperatures and can easily cause
injuries.
Never give sparklers to very
young children.
Make sure everyone handling
sparklers wears gloves.
Hold sparklers at arms length
while being lit..
Don't wave sparklers about
close to other people.
Never hold a baby in your arms
while you are holding a sparkler. :
When the sparkler has finished
put it in a bucket of cold water.
Barbecues
When choosing a grill, stability
is a must. Ensure that the one you
choose is strong and sturdy.
Prepare the grill early to ensure
it is at the right temperature by the
time you want to cook.
Never pour petrol or meths onto
a grill.
Use long handled tools, and
thick oven gloves when handling
skewers and kebabs.
Be careful of the steam when
opening foil parcels.
Don't forget that the metal
parts of the grill can become hot
too.
Do not leave a hot grill unat-
tended.
Remember to keep children
away from a hot grill. Ensure they
are supervised by an adult.


Chinese crackers were probably
the first fireworks to be made about
2,000 years ago. They are still used
in: China today to celebrate wed-
dings. births and religious festivals
-.and to scare away evil spirits!
Fireworks were used for cen-
turies in ancient: Indian and
Siamese .(Thailand) religious cere-
monies. Some of the rockets were 8-
10 feet long and were attached to.
bamboo sticks that were 40 feet
high.
Fireworks were certainly used
in Europe by the 14th- Century.
They were probably brought back
from the East by the Crusaders and
used for entertainment.
The use and popularity of fire-
works was initiated by the monar-
chy. The first recorded fireworks in
England were at the wedding of
King Henry VII in 1486.


SP 7/ /S 7



Prining#eus


They gained popularity during
the reign of Henry VIll and by
Elizabethan times (1558-1603)
there was a fireworks master.
Queen Elizabeth I created this post
so that someone would be in charge
of organizing firework displays for
great occasions. James II even
knighted his fireworks master after
a particularly excellent show of fire-
works at his coronation.
George II had been fighting a
war abroad and when it was over,
he planned a very big celebration.
He decided upon a fireworks display
and he commissioned a German
born composer, George Frederic
Handel, who came to England, in
1727, to compose a great outdoor
concerto to introduce the Royal
Fireworks. Handel naturally called
it "Music for the Royal Fireworks."
There were one hundred musi-
cians in the orchestra and an audi-
ence of 12,000 people was expected.
In fact, the event caused one of the
first traffic jams in Londonl
The king's idea was to have the
fireworks to celebrate peace.
Unfortunately, the outdoor pavilion
caught fire! It was a very memo-
rable event. Handel's music was a
big hit and is still! played today in
the celebration of great events.

dental specialties. Becoming a spe-
cialist requires 18 months to 2 years
of additional training after dental
school. Most dentists hone their
skills in cosmetic dentistry by taking
continuing education course.

Three Servicemen Statue



to Locate in Apalachicola


Apalachicola has become the
first site in the nation to obtain per-
mission from the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial (better known as The
Wall) in Washington, D.C. This
duplicate, the first of five envisioned
to be placed around the nation, will
be placed in a landscaped park
along Market Street. It is anticipat-
ed that this statue will become a
focal point for people throughout
the Southeast to visit and be
reminded of the sacrifices of the
men and women who served during
the Vietnam conflict.


The late Frederick Hart sculpt-
ed the original statue. The larger
than life sculpture features three
servicemen, representative of the
various ethnic groups that made up
America's fighting force in Vietnam.
This will be the first full-scale repli-
ca of a Washington monument out-
side of our nation's capital in the
history of the century.
A nonprofit corporation, Three
Servicemen Statue South, Inc., has
been organized to raise the neces-
sary funds and erect the statue.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 2001


From the Principal of f


Wewahitchka


High School

by Dr. Bill Truby


Summer school is now half
over. Do you believe it? Summer is
certainly the fastest of the seasons.
Of course the reason for such
rapidity is not a faster clock, but a
busier than ever calendar-personal
and professional.
There is a town meeting next
Monday, at 6:00 p.m. at WHS. This
is a reconvening of the group, and
any others, who met about a month
ago to discuss the future of our
Junior High/Middle School. This
next meeting will allow the commit-
tee that was formed to report the
findings and recommendations of
its several get-togethers. We can be
confident that some good things are
on the horizon.
Speaking of meetings, earlier
this week, a countywide task force
met to review the dress code and
code of conduct for the middle and
high schools. First of all we want to
say thanks to the parents and stu-
dents who represented our end of
the county. Secondly, you can be
sure that you will be made aware of,
the decisions as soon as everything
is presented to the school board for
approval. The goal of this group was
to provide a standard policy across
the county that we can place in our
handbooks and enforce unilateral-
ly. You may want to hold off on your
clothing purchases until informa-
tion is published.
Another meeting that was held
on Tuesday of this week was for try-
outs for upcoming drama produc-
tions. It is gratifying to see so many
students and community members
supporting our theatrical efforts.
Thanks to Mrs. McNamara and
Mrs. Truby for heading up the try-
outs. I hear from a reliable source
that the first production of the year
will be "Man of the House," a situa-
tional comedy. We'll keep you post-
ed on the dates of the presentation.
Since the arrival of our school
grades, considerable time has -been
spent reviewing and creating plans
of action to make sure we rebound
from what was a disappointing
assessment from the state. Close
scrutiny has provided some very
enlightening and encouraging infor-
mation. Please consider the follow-
ing. In both the junior, high and
senior high, we met all the criteria
for A and B schools except in one
category. Our percentages of stu-
dents in the lowest levels of reading
dropped tremendously. Our per-
centages of students scoring in lev-
els two and above rose consider-
ably. Math scores also rose well and
were above the criteria for high per-
forming schools.
In a final analysis, we did quite
well-except in writing at the junior
high and reading at the high school.
With regard to the former, we had
experienced great success in writ-
ing in the past. We'll reach those
lofty numbers once more for sure.
And with regard to the high school
reading, we were just two percent
short of the state's requirement.
However, we did improve an unbe-
lievable 27 percent. Take heart, the
teachers are doing a fine job, and
the students are learning.
On another academic note,
please be advised that the grading
scale for us will be changing after
the legislature voted to have what
we call a 90, 80, 70, 60 grading
scale. From now on you will need a
90 to get an A, 80 for a B, etc. This
will undoubtedly affect GPA's, and
it should cut down on summer
school. The rationale for this
change is to enable our students in
Florida to compete with students
from other states who already have
such a grading scale in areas of
scholarships and college entrance.


Florida High School, the state's
on-line high school, still has open-
ings in a few classes. .If you can
commit to some very engaging
classes, please contact Mr. Monks
at WHS. This may be a way to work
ahead or get caught up on a credit

Local Cadets Earn the Silver Chord


On July 23rd, three cadets
from the Port St. Joe High School
Naval Junior Reserve Officer
Training Corps graduated from the
very demanding NJROTC
Leadership School at Admiral
Farragut Academy in St.
Petersburg.
Kelly Daniels, Michael Hill and
B.J. Strickland were part of a con-
tingent of over 400 cadets from high
schools in Florida and Georgia who
were selected to attend the academy
in the month of June. Admiral
Farragut Academy is an NJROTC

or two.
Continue to have an enjoyable
summer-and a safe one. In conclu-
sion, remember the words of Albert
Einstein: "Insanity: Doing the same
thing and expecting a different'
result." Sometimes change is good
just for sanity.


WHS Reunion
There will be a meeting on
Thursday, July 2nd, at 6:00 p.m.,
CT, at the home of Tom and Dianne
Semmes, 1730 Highway 386
(Oversti-eet Road), Wewahitchka, for
any members of the graduating
classes of 1962 through 1972 who
are interested in planning an
upcoming class reunion.
If you would like to help with
the plans but are unable to attend
this meeting, please call 639-5345
for details, or for directions. i

Heartfelt Thanks
George, Hilda, Lee and Anna
Duren would like to express their
heartfelt thanks to their many
friends and neighbors who
expressed kind concern, wishes of
healing, and most of all those who
earnestly prayed for their daughter.
By the grace of God, Anna has
survived a tragic automobile acci-
dent, and was spared to be healed
by our loving Heavenly Father.
'We are humbly thankful. Once
again we are reminded why we're so
happy, thankful and proud to call
Port St. Joe our home, all of you our
neighbors, and most of all, the Lord
Jesus Christ our Savior," said
George, Hilda, Lee and Anna.

Gospel Sing In Wewa
The Adcocks will perform
"Expect a Miracle Today", a gospel
sing, on Friday, June 29th at 6:30
p.m. at the Wewahitchka
Community center.
The sing is sponsored by New
Beginning Life and Praise
Pentecostal Holiness Church.

high school established in 1945 in
St. Petersburg.
The mission of the Leadership
Academy is to prepare selected
NJROTC cadets for leadership roles
in their respective units. To be
selected to attend academy, cadets
must be highly motivated to be a
future leader in the unit, pass strin-
gent physical fitness test, and be
trained on the basics of military
drill.
This is the first year that the
Port St. Joe NJROTC Unit has sent
cadets to the prestigious Admiral
Farragut Campus. The cost of send-
ing these fine young cadets to lead-
ership school was paid by generous
donations from local citizens and
businesses.
While at the academy cadets
were given instructions on self dis-
cipline, relationships with seniors
and juniors, giving orders, develop-
ing loyalty, maintaining integrity,
establishing goals, developing a
positive mental attitude, disciplin-
ing inappropriate behavior, making
decisions, delegating authority, tak-
ing the initiative, communicating
and keeping an open mind, devel-
oping team work and coordinating
operations, time management,
being physically fit, overcoming
bias and prejudice and maintaining
safety.
The cadets also had sailing
instructions, completed an orien-
teering course .and demonstrated
map reading skills and compass
expertise. They were also required
to pass a strenuous physical fitness
test by doing push-ups, sit-ups and
completing a one and one-half mile


run. The minimum requirements
were based on their age and gender.
The cadets had extensive class-
es on drill, the sword manual, color
guard procedure, and guidon bear-
ing. They also received classes on
social etiquette, manners, courtesy,
social obligations, and' eating
habits.
Each cadet's final grade was
based on academic tests, military
inspections, and individual perfor-
mance. Cadets were awarded an
Academic Completion Certificate
and the Academy "Silver Chord," if
all aspects of the training were suc-
cessfully completed with at least an
