Mill Site Testing Starts Soon


Sampling "Will Not" Be Done Without DEP Presence


Representatives of the federal
Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) have agreed with the recom-
mendation of the Florida,
Department, of Environmental
Protection (DEP) to move forward
with environmental testing and
evaluation of the paper mill. site
and adjoining property in Port St.
Joe.
In a written response, EPA
officials set a deadline of May 11,
2002 for the initial testing of the
site to be completed.
On Monday of this week, DEP
officials, Smurfit-Stone represen-
tatives and environmental testing
consultants from both Smurfit-
Stone and the St. Joe Company
conducted a field tnp of the mill
site and old settling basin.
As earlier reported in The
Star, Smurfit-Stone and St. Joe
Company asked. DEP to allow
them. the property owners, to ini-
Uate environmental site testing
rather than the area possibly
being declared a hazardous waste
clean-up site and placed on an


environmental superfund type
list.'
DEP agreed and made a rec-
ommendation to EPA to' allow this
action. This created a stir locally
as concern was issued over the
property owners being involved in
the evaluations.
Both DEP and EPA and the
property owners have since out-
lined that the testing would be
done by independent environ-
mental consultant teams under
the watchful eyes of DEP.
SThe major portion 01 the role
property owners play is to actual-
ly pay for the environmental test-
ing. Independent consultants will
have to follow a testing plan that
'has been approved by DEP.
Steve Hamilton, Regional
Environmental Serxices Manager
with Smurfit-Stone Container,
and Ferrel Allen. Site Overseer.
said during an interview Tuesday
that they didn't want the public to
be suspect of any portion of the
testing procedures. Hamilton
requested of DEP personnel at the


ilte Monday that sampling 'will
ot" be done without DEP repre-
sentatives in the field at the time
samples are taken.


The purpose of Monday's
walkover was to establish the
perimeters of the test area and
locations for test wells at the


Smurfit-Stone mill site and the
old settling pond property owned

Hess Rules In Favor of County


Commission On Bobzien Homes

Redistricting & Inmate County Questions Continue


For two years, the Gulf
County commission board has
dealt with issues concerning two-
homes at the Cape-one owned by
Michael Bobzien and the other
owned by his wife. Lisa Y.
Bobzien.
The board and their building
official Michael Hammond have
stood at odds against the
Bobziens because of numerous
structural faults in the construc-
tion of the home that failed to
meet building codes and stan-
dards. Hammond has described
portions of the homes to be struc-
turally unsound to the point of
posing immediate danger to occu-
pants.


Gulf County won an injunc-
tion on this issue Tuesday when it
received a ruling from Circuit
Judge Glenn L. Hess supporting
the, court's stance.
'The evidence in this case
already shows that the structures
in issue fail to meet numerous
requirements of the applicable
codes, Hess stated in his written
ruling.
"Neither the defendants, nor
anyone acting in .concert with
them, shall occupy or reside in
the structuXre located on real
property in Gulf County... until
the Building Department issues a
certificate of occupancy," his
statement cohcludes.
During the board's meeting
STuesday evening, :the board fol-
lowed the .recommendation of
Hammond and unanimously
voted to proceed with condemna-
tion of the two homes.
Of the options remaining for
the Bobziens, they can appeal the
ruling, correct the building flaws
and seek a certificate of occupan-


tricting and including inmate
populations ,in those numbers
came up on several occasions
during the course of the meeting.
Gary Ross. chairman of the
Republican Party of Gulf County,
and Pat McFarland. chairman of
the Gulf County Democratic
Executive Committee, joined
hands across party lines and
asked the board not to include
prison populations in this process
of redistricting.
'Ross .presented the board
with a letter that outlined his
opinion .and reasons for not
counting prisoners. He also pre-
sented the board with a petition
containing 190 signatures calling
for a rejection of prisoner counts
and the adoption of Scenario 17A.
He also alluded to a survey
conducted by The Star (see
results on editorial page) in which

around the county opposed

The deadly Eastern Equine
Encephalitis virus outbreak is
making its way throughout the.
'Panhandle. To date. no cases
have been reported in Gulf
County. but the virus has been
reported in brdeinng counties.
Gulf County commissioners
have stepped up the attack on the
carter of the disease-mosqui-
toes!
The board decided to extend
spraying operations for mosqui-
toes throughout the county. At
risk for the virus are horses, emu,
ostnches. and rhea. But, in addi-
tion. humans can also catch the
virus even though there are very
few cases typically reported in.
Flonda. Unusually high levels of
the virus in this region have
raised these concerns:for, human.
infection more so than usual.
The best protection for
humans is to avoid mosquito
bites.
'For horses and other men-
tioned animals of risk, vaccina-
tion'is the best course of action.
Horses should 'be vaccinated
three times per year in order to be
adequately protected. When a


Deputy Mose Hill


horse contracts EEE. the mortali-
ty rate is 90%. Symptoms include
fever, impaired vision, irregular
gait. reduced reflexes, inability to
swallow, and occasional convul-
sions.
CountY Commissioner Billy
Traylbr reported during Tuesday's
meeting that Gulf County
Extension Agent Roy Lee Carter
has the vaccination required for
animals.
Persons, with questions
should contact Carter or Gulf
County Emergency Management
Director Larry Wells for more
/ information or assistance.
The virus is actually carried
by birds. but is transmitted by
mosquitoes which bite infected
birds then transfer the virus.
Humans cannot contract the
virus directly from a horse, but
only from mosquitoes.
During a phone conversation
with Carter early Wednesday
morning, he said the best precau-
tion that horse owners can take is
to vaccinate their animals. if they.
have not had EEE shots within
the past six weeks.

SWe Don't Even Live Close to An Alley!


Survey Results Are



In; No Big Surprises

There were no big surprises as we counted the nearly 200
responses to the informal survey taken through The Star over
the past few weeks.
On more than one occasion, I have noted that not one per-
son from any portion of Gulf County has voiced support to
the thought of counting prison populations 'in Gulf County's
redistricting process. Of the 193 persons who responded to
the survey, all 193 said "no" to counting prisoners.
Even I thought there would be somebody out there who
would declare we should count prisoners. But not one person
gave this opinion and 100% of those surveyed felt prisoners
should not be included in the formula.
This question comes about because there is gray area in
the guidelines for using population figures to redistrict coun-
ty commission and school board district lines to maintain
close to equal population in these districts. Gulf County and
the school board have requested an opinion from the Florida
Attorney General's Office to see how th 'office interprets this,
gray area in the process.
There is no case law on the question that would give legal
support to one side of the issue or the other.
Gulf County commissioners have voted to count prisoners
if the Attorney General's opinion says to do so and adopt
redistricting Scenario 11 B. If the Attorney General's opinion
says not to count prisoners, they have agreed to adopt
Scenario 17A which would not include inmate counts.
The school board has not adopted any scenarios and is
scheduled to hold its second public hearing on the question
in Wewahitchka on July 12th (today) seeking, more public
input. on the matter. Both boards held a joint workshop in
Port St. Joe recently to discuss this issue. County commis-
sioners decided (4-1) it was not necessary to participate in
additional workshops after passing the two scenarios afore-
mentioned.
Other Survey Questions
It is important for both school board and county commis-
sion district lines to be alike for voting purposes.
Ninety-three .percent J(93%) of those responding to- ,this
question said it was important to have like district bound-
aries. Only 7% of respondents thought it to be unimportant-
168 "yes" versus 13 "no."
Question #3 asked about creating a narrow path around
District 5 to include the Cape and Indian Pass area in District
4 (as is the case with county Scenario 11B). Ninety-five per-
cent (95%) of the responses opposed this concept (nine
favored, 157 opposed); 15 had no response.
Question #4 asked if commissioners should continue
efforts to return to at-large voting for, commission seats-
rather than the current single member district process. The
responses to this question were especially interesting
because the numbers closely paralleled the results from a
public referendum taken on this issue in 1992. Seventy-eight
percent (789o) of voters said all voters should have a say in
who represents them on the commission and school board.
Survey responses on this question show 72% saying they
favored at-large voting and 28% opposing the process (124 --
28). This is within 6% points of being identical to the results
of the 1992 county-wide referendum. That's pretty close con-
sidering this was just an informal survey.
Only 11% of responses came from the northern end of the
county (Districts 1 and 2). Of the 193 responses, 21 were
received from the two districts. The. remainder of responses
came from Districts 3, 4, and 5.


A cat showed up on my front
doorsteps.
A white cat. .
Another white cat!,
Another starving white cat!
I don't know how they do it!
The cat underground is more effi-
cient than the old "party line" tele-
phone system that kept Mrs.
Purvis informed of all the comings
and goings in our little town dur-
ing the fifties.
This cat is the worst looking
one yet. And,'believe me, I've seen
some pretty puny felines. Sue-Cat
dropped out of the sky in 1976.
He, or she, was a tad on the mal-
nourished side. We could'see a few
ribs.. ,
I told Cathy not to feed this
cat. That I didn't particularly like
cats. I didn't want to fool with the
thing. And if you feed it, it might
hang around. Her famous last
words were, "We'll just get 'it' back
on its feet, and then we send. 'it' on
its way."
Sue-Cat stayed with us fifteen
years. She could out eat a lumber-
jack! She enjoyed Tender Vittles;
and milk along with her eggs,


bacon and Rice Krispics in the
morning. She especially liked the
fish Ilatored Tender Vittles to aug-
ment her harm'and tuna sand.ich-
es at lunch.-Arid, of course, she'd
surround her bi_ evening meal of
potatoes and meatloaf with "book-
end" packages of Tender V\'iles.
And, as you might readily imagine,
she wasn't going to bed. without a
little -butter pecan ice cream,
sprinkled lightly with gourmet fla-
vored Tender Vittles ..
She got to taking her meals
sitting down, lying in bed or
propped up, whichever fit her
fancy at the moment. She liked the
air condition vent by the refrigera-
tor in the summer and the bay
window in, the winter. She'd
scratch on the bedroom door, no
matter what the hour, if she took a,
notion to go out. She'd have a pre-
monition every time I was moving
in for a 'siesta on the couch and
she'd sprint ahead of me and
throw herself on 'the middle cush-
ion.
That crazy cat took to umpingg
into my lap every time I sat down.
She wouldn't "hop up" until I
rubbed her and spoke to her! We
had sorta of an arrangement-I
would entertain her with my
Barney Fife impersonation, and
she would shed on me. She did
enjoy watching World War II unfold
on the history channel. I never
knew if she just liked all the smoke
and noise, or if she was trying to


pick up a lew tips on battle tactics

Sue-Cat died from either old
age. lack of perceivable exercise or
one too many Tender Vittles. We're
still not real sure which-catoloay,
is not my long suit.
Sue-Cat-Too showed up less
than a week later. This straggler
Shad even more ribs poking out
than the first one. "It" could run
around in a shower and not get
wet! "Cathy, don't feed this cat.
The hotel is closed!"
She allowed that she wasn't
going to do anything on a perma-
nent basis with this new
vagabond, she'd just "used up the
Tender Vittles left over from Sue-
Cat."
Sue-Cat-Too attacked those
tiny morsels with the gusto of a
starving, just-come-out-of-the-
woods-lost-for-three-weeks hound
dogl Man, we just thought that
first cat could eat! Garfield would
have taken a back, seat to this
feline!
The new, just passing
through, hanging around only long
enough to get back on "its" feet cat,
chewed on that pile of leftover
Tender Vittles for the better part of
twelve years!
Katsa materialized out of thin
air three days after Sue-Cat-Too
met her, or his, demise.' Icouldn't
Believe it! This one was emaciated,
I thought, past the point of no'
return. Boy, was I wrTong! She


made the others look like they'd
just been picking at their meals. It
didn't take long to cover those nbs.:
And for the face to "flesh" out. And -
for the double chin to appear. And.
for the belly to start dragging the
floor . "Cathy, that cat is going
to explode if it doesn't stop eating.".
"It" exploded about three,
weeks later-birthing four baby
kittens in my bedroom closet!
I had been catarized again! '
"Cathy, I'm pretty certain that
this one is a female."
You don't own a cat. Nobody .
owns a cat. The blame cat owns
you! And you don't, "pick"' a cat.
The cat looks everything over'cir-'
cumspectly, in their natural bred
finicky' way, and then carefully and'
cautiously selects the place they.
choose to hang out. And son, 'let
me tell you, once they drop anchor'
there ain't much you can do!
The "new" cat won't get off my
front steps. "It" has been there fori
a week now. And you talk about a '
tad on the undernourished side-
this thing can turn directly toward'
you and disappear! It could 'also'

this must be the cat that got
trapped inside ise Hosey
Highway 54 Bar and Grill during

burned the place down!
This cat has definitely seen

Proud To Be In The Company Of This Old Craftsman
n 1. Ol'Caf .


A GOOD FRIEND and a good
man with a piece of machinery
passed away a couple of weeks
ago. He just slipped on out of this
life with hardly a whimper or a
whisper.
L. F. Adams was known by
several people here in Port St.
Joe as the result of his having
been pastor of-the Highland View
Baptist Church for a while during
the 1960s.
He was known to me because
he was a part-time employee of
mine during that same period of
time, and has been a good friend
and supporter since that time.
Yes, he was a printer!
He held a plethora of jobs
and positions during his long life,
and went through them all with a
smile on his face. I never remem-
ber seeing the man when he was-
n't smiling, as if he didn't have a
care in the world. Actually, I
don't think he did!
He started out in the printing
business, and later in life gave

his life to God and became a
preacher.
He did both very well and left
a good taste in the mouth of all
he came in contact with.
He and Rev. J. C. Odum, who
is, gravely ill at this time, remind
me of each other.

BUT, THIS BLURB IS about
L. F. Adams.
Adams started at least a
dozen printing plants and weekly
newspapers in his life. He worked
at the naval station in Panama
City during the war repairing
electronics and meters. He
worked for a while as a linotype

ated by his son, Keith.
His son, Tommy, worked for
me during the 60s and is cur-
rently employed by Gulf Coast
College in their printing depart-
ment.
He was a craftsman and had
craftsmen for sons. He was one of
the few people I know who could
take a person's cast-offs and
make them do yeoman dulty
again.

MOST RECENTLY, HE wrote
a religious column for The Star.
which we printed on our church
page. He stayed busy until he
was admitted to a nursing home
recently.
In the last couple of years, he
ha's been a TV star-to show you
one of his many accomplish-
ments. Do you remember the
"Wilson Funeral Home" commer-
cials? Adams was the grandfa-
ther, taking his grandson fishing,
who "had already made final
arrangements and had time to
spend with his grandson."
Of course, he had a lock on
that commei-cial due to the fact
that one of his daughters married
Steve Wilson, the son of the
funeral home's founder.

BACK WHEN I WAS first
experimenting with switching
over to the offset method of print-
ing, I took my copies to a little
hole-in-the-wall operation, ran
by Tom Bryan, one of the part-

He was another of those
craftsmen I was talking about.
Allen was old, chain-smoked,
didn't weigh 120 lbs., and had no
teeth; but he knew his photogra-
phy and he "played around" with
offset printing in an old garage.
building. .;
Allen once told me, "There
are only a handful of those old
craftsmen-linotype operators like
you and L. F. Adams left around
here."
It was sort of a compliment to
me to be included in the -compa-
ny of L. F. Adams!
He was the one who took an
old hand press I had surplus,
and rigged it up to power with a
small. electric, motor, powered
with a sewing machine belt It
worked, too.
Adams always had a couple
of old hand-fed presses and. a
linotype machine out in his


garage he tinkered around with.
Even in the later days of comput-
ers, he had one of those, knew
how to use it, and also had his
operating linotype machine!
He was a master at improvi-
sation. He made almost every-
thing he would use in his print
shop.

HE WOULD NOT COME to
Port St. Joe without coming by to
see me. Sometimes, he made a
special trip over here to visit with
me. He always came at least once
a year. The last time I remember
seeing him was the year I retired.
He had became too old to drive by
himself, so he got himself a driver
and came anyhow.
He was always smiling! I did-
n't get to'be there when he didd,
but I'll bet he was even smiling,
then, too. "
L. F. Adams was the only
man I ever saw, who didn't have
a cross word to say to anybody.
He was strictly positive!

According to Port St. Joe
Police Chief Jay Leffert, the visi-

The Rotary Club was playing
the Kiwanis Club in the North
Port St. Joe ballpark. Back then,
that was the only ballpark in
town.
Pete Miller was pitching for
the Rotary Club and George
Tapper was playing first base.
Frank Hannon was playing on the
Kiwanis team.
When Frank came up to bat,
George walked over to the mound
and told Pete that Frank couldn't
hit a curve ball. Pete wound, up,
threw the ball. and Frank hit a
home run. George started walking
toward the mound and Pete said,
"Don't come over here and tell me
anything." George then said, "But
it didn't curve.'"
I don't remember who won
the game.

tors spotted a white male, 40 to
50 years old, lying in the sand
near the bridge and along the'
water's edge of the Gulf County
Canal at around 7:00 p.m.
Saturday afternoon. The body
was located on the bay side of the
bridge on the southern shore of
the water's edge.
Members of the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
Crime Lab, were \called in to
process the scene and help with
the procedure of removing the
body and transporting it to the
rmtedical examiner's office for fur-
ther evaluation.
Leffert said. Tuesday it was
still premature to ,make a deter-
mination as to whether foul play
was involved in the death. The
incident remains under investiga-
tion.
The force is in the process of
identifying the body and notifying
the next of kin. Further informa-
tion will be released as it is made
available.

McFarland called for the
board to "do the right thing." He
told the board that counting pris-
oners "defies logic" and should
not be done regardless of Attorney
General Butterworth's opinion.
Amy Shackleford, president of
the jkocal chapter of the NAACP,
presented the board with another
scenario that was proposed by the
Gulf County NAACP branch. In
her proposal, she included inmate
counts and said her proposal
does not dilute the minority dis-
trict.
Lastly, Commission Chair-
man Nathan Peters, Jr. brought
Scenario #17 to the board mem-
bers and asked them to consider
it for adoption instead of 17A
because it does not split the
Overstreet area into two different
'districts. ,

President Clay Smallwood
approached the board with a pro-
posal for the company to reopen

and turn the maintenance over to
the county. The proposal also
offered to deed the roadway over
to the county when and if paving
plans were put in place.
In exchange for opening the
road, Smallwood asked that the
county relinquish any claims on
the County Line Road, Road 14,
Road 14A, and a small portion of
Road 5. Board members tabled
the proposal for review.

Second Leatherback Lays on St. Joe Beach


By: Barbara Eells
Well, Ed and Sissy Taylor
needed to trade their turtle day
with another volunteer, so they
called Dick Schweikert. Dick
'agreed and as normal, the turtle
Patrol began on July 5th at
:Tyndall and worked back toward
:Palm Point, but Dick decided to
begin at the Gulf County line.
In the meantime, I'm having
:this feeling of "stay by the phone!"
"Atd, sure enough Dick called on
hfis dell-phone.
He said, "We got a big'un! It's
,a. whopper!!!" He described the
width and the throw-back, so I
wentt down to Gulf Aire to view it.
Now, Dick had already begun
: looking for the eggs-it can take a
'while with this size nest to locate
'them.
We called the turtle volun-
teers on this side of the County to
let them know. We knew if we had
to relocate the eggs it would have


to be done soon. This area is
marsh, so when the tide comes in,
the water seeps under the sand,
but you'd never know this unless
you have to find eggs in a nest, or
dig a hole for a bonfire or for a
moat for your sandcastle.
Mother leatherback dug a
hole but' abandoned that one
because it collapsed and was
already filled with water.
She went about 8 feet before
she decided to dig- her nest
because there was no water there.
I was the lucky one to find the
eggs! But the tides were coming
in, and they were in water by this
time, so we moved the eggs.
Paula Boone dug a nice large
nest cavity well away from the
water table and "near as good as
Mama leatherback!"
The 105 billiard-ball size eggs
were placed into the new nest cav-
ity well away from the water table


and will incubate there until time
to hatch.
This leatherback measured 7
feet one inch from flipper tip to

These eggs will hatch in'
approximately nine weeks and
the baby turtles will begin their
journey to the sea.


flipper tip.
The next day we found out
that several people had seen
her-the LaCour family, Brenda
Ward and I'm sure there were a
few others. She apparently began
her trip to shore during the end-
ing of the fireworks celebration for
the 4th of July on. Mexico Beach.
Mom. leatherback, as an
ancestor of one of the oldest crea-
tures on our great Earth, couldn't
have chosen a more appropriate
time (in human thinking as she
was just following Nature's call) to
lay her eggs as we celebrated our
nation's birth!
She also left her calling card,
except this time, she -made a
"donut" at the beginning of her
crawl and ended her "song" with
the traditional "donut" as she
seemed to say, "Hi" and "Bye"!

Quota Applications for Fall

In addition to the regular
nine-day and special quota hunt

since June 1, the Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Comm-
ission offers additional quota

some unique hunts. Applications
for permits for these hunts are
available from any of the
Commission's regional offices.

The Commission has estab-
lished hunts for hunters who have
mobility impairments and who
require special equipment in
order to enjoy outdoor recreation.
These hunts will take place on the
Three Lakes and Seminole Forest
wildlife management areas
(WMAs) in northeast Florida, the
Holton Creek WMA in north cen-
tral Florida, andI the John G: and
Susan. H. Dupuis, Jr. Wildlife
Environmental Area in the South
Region. These hunts have been'
set aside exclusively for mobility-
impaired hunters. These hunts
are not intended'for hunters who
have the Florida disabled hunting
and fishing license, but .rather for
those who are ,permanently con-
fined to a wheel chair or who
require the use of mechanical aids
(crutches and walkers) to walk or
who have complete single-leg
amputations. Interested hunters
should, ask: for the Mobility-.
Impaired Persons Hunt applica-
tion.

young hunters on a public hunt-'
ing area where the number of

lar and the number of applicants
exceeds the number of. spaces'

ber of groups that may use dogs

groups rangfig in size from' five to
15' hunters. Goethe Dog' Hunt
applicatibnrs will also be available

Wildlife management areas in
the southern part of the state offer
hunters an unusual challenge
because of their glades-like habi-
tat. Hunting these areas requires
special vehicles, and :' the
Commission has established quo-
tas on the number of these, vehi-
cles.
A new unit was added.to the

Farm toTable Meals

'By Hayley Matson


Chop 'Til You Drop
The pork chop has earned a special place in most American's hearts and deserves
a second look. on the menu. Chops bring to mind memories of dinner at Grandma's
and the old-fashioned goodness of country cooking. Today's chops can be more up-
scale in presentation, bui eery'bit as satisfying.
Chops are versatile-just ask busy mom Monica Stafford. Monica and husband
Tim are one of the farmer-o ners that own the Farmland system. Jarren, Jordan,
and Joni Stafford like pork chops featured on the family menu often According to
Monica, the grill is the favorite way to cook chops at their busy household. And
baked chops offer a simple solution to the popular question--what is for dinner?
-The updated chop can be flavored by simmering :in salsa, rubbed with cajun
spices, broiled with mustard or glazed with marmalade. While thinner chops are
'pealing tL the hurried working family, Extra Tender and thick boneless cuts are
grow ing in popularity Thick chops can be marinated in oil, spices, and vinegar for
an intense flavor. Smoking or grilling will really perk up boring meals.
America's flavor palate has expanded to include a renewed interest in international
cuisine. Ethnic flavors, hot and spicy seasonings, lean meats, and exotic fruits top
the list of favorites. But there is nothing like coming home to a comforting meal'
of pork chops fixed the old-fashioned way, baked in the oven with a new twist. Try
these favorites from the farmer-owners at Farmland.
Peppered Peach Glazed
Pork Chops
4 Farmland Extra Tender Pork Chops, 1 tablespoon lime juice
3/4 to 1 inch thick 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup peach preserves ,1/2 teaspoon coarsely
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger ground pepper
Grill pork chops over medium coals 15 minutes per side. Mix remaining
ingredients. During last few minutes of cooking, brush glaze on chops. Preparation
,time: 5 minutes, Cooking time: 30 minutes
Pork Chops and Wild Rice
4 Farmland Extra Tender* Pork Chops, 2 cups water
1/2 inch thick 1 package (16 ounces)
Paprika frozen oriental vegetables
1 package (6.2 ounces) long
grain and wild rice mix
Sprinkle pork chops with paprika. Pour rice with seasoning packet into 9 X 13
inch baking dish. Stir in water and vegetables. Place chops on top of rice mixture.

MAY IS GONE BUT

HYPERTENSION IS NOT!
Back in May, a great deal was said and done about call-
ing people's attention to hypertension. There were articles,
screenings, posters, talks, and any other special activities to
make the public aware of the high blood pressure problem. It's all
very traditional for May.
But, here it is July and while all the "hoopla" is gone,
hypertension is still here. The important purpose of this ad is to
remind you that high blood pressure is a year round problem and
that if you have it, you must keep on taking your medication.

Dove Fields Need

Hunters who plan to plant

to hunt, you have to plan and
work at it," said Arlo Kane.

sunflowers. Both pearl rullet and
browntop millet have much short-
er maturation times of 55 60
days.
June and July are typically
wet months and sufficient soil
moisture is necessary for any crop
to germinate successfully. He also
suggested those interested in
planting fields get with their
county extension office for a soil
test.
Kane said having plenty of
seed on the ground this fall won't
necessarily insure doves will hang
around since, they may leave or
migrate when cool fronts move
through or other weather phe-
nomena occur but one thing is
certain.
"If the fields aren't ready,,
you're nhot as likely to have birds,"
he said.
Kane said a publication for
planting dove fields,, including
seeding and fertilization rates is
available from the FWC's Panama
City office. The phone number is

No one should participate in
contact sports without wearing a
mouth guard-especially if you want
to keep your front teeth and retain
some semblance of a smile.
Mouthguards can either be store-
bought or custom made by the den-
tist.
The store-bought type is avail-
able on most sports shops. It's usu-
ally made of a polyvinyl material
which is softened in boiling water


ypesof Mouth

Guards

for about 45 seconds and then
dunked into cold water for a second
or two. It is then placed over, the
teeth (usually the uppers) 'and
adapted with the fingers and tongue
while sucking out the air and the
water.
Custom mouth guards are
made by the dentist frcm a mold. of'
your teeth. While initially more
expensive tha tthe store-bought
type, it may cost less in the end run.'
It fits the teeth better, is more coir->
fortable to wear and won't .mpair

will probably spend more time in the'
mouth (protecting the teeth) than in

60th Anniversary Celebrated


by Local Rotarian Chapter


The local chapter of Rotary
International, the Port St. Joe
Rotary Club, recently celebrated
its 60th anniversary and com-
bined that commemoration with
installation of officers for the
upcoming year.
The event was held at the
Stiles Brown Senior Citizens
.Center with District Governor
Bill Crawford in attendance.
Last year's president Jay
Leffert presided over the event,
and commended his fellow
Rotarians for their work during
the past year. The local club, after
years of fund-raising efforts, put
the finishing touches on the
Scouting facility located on Oak
Grove Avenue. The modern facili-
ty was dedicated to the memory of
John T. Simpson, long-time Boy
Scout leader during the 50's and
60's. Local scouting units, both


Boy and Girl Scouts use the cen-
ter for their activities. Each year
the Rotary Club funds a four-year
scholarship to a deserving gradu-
ate of Port St. Joe High School.
Rotary International has had
the goal of world-wide small pox
eradication, and because of the
monetary efforts of local clubs
like Port St. Joe, has nearly
attained that goal.
As a highlight of the evening
Wesley Ramsey and Jimmy
McNeill, both long-time club
members, gave a brief history of
the Rotary Club. A photograph of
the Rotary Club baseball team of
1948, with many of the club's
charter members, was given to
those in attendance. George Core,
club octogenarian, Wesley
Ramsey, and Jimmy McNeill were
the only three able to identify all
of the team members.


Three Rotarians were recog-
nized as Paul Harris Fellows, a
prestigious award given to
Rotarians who make significant
contributions to the goals of
Rotary. New fellows named were
George Y. Core, David B. May,
and Ralph Roberson.
Installed by George Core as
officers for the upcoming
2001/2002 year were Russell
Scholz, president; Willie Ramsey,
vice president; Victor Ramos, sec-
retary, and Gary White, treasur-
er.
Robin Downs, caterer for the
event, not only cooked the meal,
but also had to sing for his sup-
per. He and fellow quartet mem-
bers, Ron Kerber, Hubert
Richards and Dave Cuttino ren-
dered numerous gospel selec-
tions.

Questions Grandparents Ask About SIDS and Safe Sleep


These days, many grandpar-
ents are raising their grandchil-
dren. Others take care of grand-
children while their parents are at
work. As a grandparent today, it
is almost guaranteed that, at
some time, you will be taking care
of your infant grandchild while he
or she is sleeping. Did you know
that guidelines for safe sleep have
changed since your children were
babies? The American Academy of
Pediatrics now says that babies
should be laid to sleep or their
backs, not on their stom,' s.
It is important you to
know and follow thesr v child
care practices to help n your
grandb: v's risk o, saying of
Sudde it Death Syndrome
(SIDS) .ow are answers to
questions that grandparents often
ask about SIDS, safe sleep, and
general infant health.
What Is SIDS?
"SIDS" stands for Sudden
Infant Death Syndrome. It means
that a baby dies in its sleep and
the doctors cannot find any other
cause of death. SIDS occurs
quickly and without warning. It is
a natural cause of death and is
not anyone's fault. SIDS happens
in families of every background.
You may hear some people
call SIDS "crib death" because it
happens to babies who are sleep-
ing. It is important to know, how-
ever that sleeping in a crib does
not cause a baby to die of SIDS. In
fact, a crib is the safest place for
your grandbaby to sleep. ,
How Should My Grandbaby Be
Placed to Sleep?' ;
For naps and nighttime,' place
your grandbabyy on his back to
sleep. If the baby falls asleep on
his stomach while playing, be-
sure to turn him over onto his
back as soon as you see that he is
asleep.
When my children were
babies, the doctor said to place
them ;on their stomachs to sleep.
Stomach sleeping didn't harm my
children.
Why can't I place my grandba-
by to sleep on his stomach?
A few years ago, researchers
discovered that babies who sleep
on their stomachs have a greater
chance of dying of SIDS than
those who sleep on their backs.
The number of SIDS deaths in
this country has dropped by 38%
since 1992, when the American
Academy of Pediatrics first began
telling families to sleep babies on
their bad.s .,
It my grandbaby spits uip while
layinigon his back, isn't he in
danger of choking? .
No. In all of the research
studies done on infant sleep posi-
tion and SIDS, there have been no
incidents of babies choking on
"spit up" in their sleep. Millions of
babies in other countries sleep on
their- backs without choking in
their sleep.
My grandbaibysleeps on a
lambskin and I usually wrap'
him in several layers of blan-
kets and clothing to make sure
he's warm..Is this okay?
No. The Consumer Product
Safety Commission recommends
that, your grandbaby sleep on a
firm mattress that fits tightly into
the crib. Remove all quilts, com-
forters. lambskin, bumper pads,
stuffed toys, or pillows from the
crib before placing the baby in it. :
Generally, your grandbaby
will be comfortable at the same
room temperature that you find
comfortable. You might buy (or
ask mom and dad to bring) a
sleeper garment and dress the
baby in it for sleeping instead of
using a blanket.
If you do use a light blanket:
(1) place the baby with his feet at
the foot of the crib, (2) bring the
blanket only up to his chest., and
(3) tuck the ends of the blanket
firmly under the mattress (so that
the blanket cannot be pulled
loose and wrapped around or
near the baby's face). Remember,
it is important to be sure that the
baby's head stays uncovered
while he sleeps.
I don't have a crib at my
house. Can't my grandbaby
sleep in bed with me?
Doctors say that babies

should sleep alone. A crib is the
safest place for baby to sleep. It is
.especially important that your
grandbaby not share a bed with
other children and/or with an
adult who has been using alcohol
or drugs (including prescription
drugs) or who does not wake up
easily.
The safest place for baby to
sleep is a crib that meets the safe-
ty guidelines of the U.S.
Consumer Product Safety
Commission. If you don't have a
crib, you could use a bassinet,
portable crib, you could use a
bassinet, portable crib, or playpen
(be sure that the sides of the
playpen are all the way up).


FHP License and

Vehicle Checkpoints
The Florida Highway Patrol
will be conducting driver license
and vehicle inspection check-
points from July 13th through
19th on SR-69 near CR-274, CR-
22 near CR-22-A, and SR-71 near
Chipola Street.
Recognizing the; danger pre-
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on vehi-
cles being operated with. defects
such as bad brakes, worn tires
and defective lighting equipment.
In addition, attention will be
directed to drivers who would vio-,
late the dnver license laws of
Flonda.
The patrol has found these
checkpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equipment
and driver license laws of Florida
ensuring the protection of all
motorists.


Again, if one of these items is
used for sleep, be sure that ,it
meets CPSC safety guidelines.
Make sure the baby does not
sleep on top of a quilt, comforter,
sleeping bag, sofa or chair cush-
ion, or other soft surface.
I wouldn't smoke while holding
my grandbaby, but isn't it
alright to smoke in another
room while he is visiting?
The rise of SIDS-as well as
for asthma, allergies, and respira-
tory infection-is greater for
babies who are exposed to smoke.
Since smoke drifts and can cling
to rugs, curtains, and furniture,

News From the Halls of


Wewahitchka

High School


Ni


Attention Parents: WHS


Dress Code Information!


No one needs the reminder
that summer is more than half
over; however, it is very important
that we acknowledge it for at least
two reasons. First, it is an indica-
tion of how quickly time is flying.
We need to "redeem" the time and
even enjoy it. Too soon our oppor-
tunities will have passed us by.
Let's not add a lot of should's'"
or,"coulda's" or would's'" to our
legacy. Take advantage of these
days, especially the summers of
our youth.
Secondly, we must prepare
and plan for the future. Indeed,
school will begin for our students
orn August 8th. And if you can
imagine it,' the teachers will
return August 2nd! Therefore, a
newsletter, is sent your way to
hqlp you plan and prepare for the
opening of the 2001-02 school,
year.
The school board, via input
from parents, students, teachers.
and administrators, has approved
a .dress code for the junior high
anid senior high students
throughout the, county. The
details of this code will be in the
handbook that will be distributed
after school begins. Since you will
be: shopping Ir school clothes
before that time? let me provide for
you a few specifics that will make
your decision-making a whole lot
easier.
Shorts cannot be more than
five inches above the knee.
Dresses and skirts cannot
be more then three inches above
the knee.
All shorts and pants must
be worn at the wv.aist.
*All tops must completely
cover fronts and backs.
Boys are not allowed to wear
tahk tops.
Sleeveless tops must have a
strap of not less than two inches.
No top or bottom should be
worn that reveals under gar-
ments.


There are a few other rules
that cover what to wear and how
to wear it, but they generally fol-
low rules of good taste and discre-
tion. For example, there will be no
head coverings in the building.
This covers caps, .bandanas,
combs, stockings, etc. And, as
always, there will be no attire
worn that bears offensive, sugges-
tive, profane, obscene or gang-
related language or symbols.
Violations for the dress code will
be handled like any other disci-
pline situation.
Speaking of shopping, once
again tax-free shopping days' are
-just ahead.. July 28th through
August 5th is the week designat'-
ed for this year. Also, if you shop
at Target, use a Target Guest
Card in order to see WHS receive
fundraising dollars! We can use it! .
Another "freebie" that you
don't want to miss is the opportu-
nit r for a free physical exam. This
is for incoming 7th graders, all
students who want one, and any
athletes including cheerleaders.
Plan ahead on this. Even if you
won't participate in a fall sport.
' think about winter or spnng. A
physical is usually good for one
year. The date for the physical is
July 31st from 8:00 to 12:00 and
from 1:00 to 3:00. They will be
given in the gym,area of the high
school. Again, these are free. Take
advantage of this gift from our
health department.
Our benevolent health
department is also offenng free
screening for HIV,. cholesterol,
sugar, blood pressure, etc. -for
adults on July 18th. from 11:00 to
6:00 at 401 Peters Street in Port
St. Joe. We are rounding into
shape in a lot of areas as we
anticipate the opening of a school.
The facility looks terrific as the
maintenance and cleaning crews
continue to do a fantastic job. We
have new flooring being applied in
the commons area, so a new look
will definitely catch you by sur- '

prise.
We are making some final
decisions with regard to our facul-
ty. We will have a complete list
prior to the opening of school, but
already we have hired five faculty
members with tWo more spots to
fill. We are also adding some new
faces in our extra-curricular
areas. :
The big news as for as, our
junior high is concerned is the.
school board's approval of a tpam ,
leader for the junior high. This
addition further develops and
accentuates our desire and need
to make our junior high an excel-
lent school. A team leader will
provide a point person far all the
faculty, staff, students, and par-
ents in the junior high. He or she
will assist the current administra-
tion with curriculum, personnel,
guidance, and' other related
issues in the junior high. This,
person will also serve on our Task
Force to more fully, realize our
-middle school plans. The appoint-
ment will be made in the 'near
future. .. .. '
Our student, need to remem-
ber that the FCAT is the required
test for graduation. Only a hand-
ful of students are still allowed to
take the old HSCT., This pin-
points, once' again, the impor-.,
tance of these state-made man-
dated tests. Take advantage of the
study opportunities that our,,
teachers and our schedules pro-
Svide.-e ig'... :
Speaking of the schedules, we
will once again offer the opportu-
nity for students and parents to;
come by and pick up schedules
prior to the oppnirig of school.
Tentatively those opportunities
will be Tuesday, the 7th of August
at 6:30 p.m. for high school and
Monday, the 6th of August for the
junior high also at 6:30 p.m. "
Summer is a great time to"'
read. Why not break away from

need to look at this as a necessi-

Congressman
Boyd Supports
Farm Aid Bill
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) joined his col-
leagues in the House 'of '
Representatives in passing a bill
to provide $5.5 billion in assis-
tance to America's farmers during ,
fiscal year 2001. The bill would
require the supplemental pay-
mfients to be distributed by ,
September 30th.
'Specifically, this-bill provides
:$4.6 'billion in Market Loss
Assistance to be distributed
among farmers who are presently
eligible for federal payments-
under the Agriculture Marketing
Transition Act (AMTA). The bill
also includes $424 million in eco-
nomic assistance to oilseed pro-
aucers,. $54 million 0to peanut
producers, $129 million to tobac-
co growers, $17 million to wool
and mohair producers, and S85
million to the producers and first
handlers of cottonseed.
In addition, the bill includes
$169 million for the produces of
speciality crops. This money will
be 'distributed to states in the
form of grants. Of that, 826,mil-
lion in grants will go to states to
support activities that promote
agriculture: S134 million in
grants for the support of speciali-
ty crops, of which Florida will get
$168 million; and $10 million to
states for the processing, trans- .
portation and distribution of com,
modities purchased under the"'
Emergency Food Assistance Act of ..
1983
"This bill is an important first
step in providing the necessary
assistance to help alleviate the '
heavy financial burden that is
being felt across rural America
and North Florida," said Boyd. 'It
is my hope that this legislation
will begin the dialogue that leads
to the much needed reform of the.
1996 Farm Bill.
