Members. of the Gulf County
Park Advisory Board and a con-
sortium of state and federal repre-
sentatives for the Florida Park
Service held their first work group
session Monday discussing sever-
al issues that have fueled local
concern.
The focus of the meeting was
aimed at resolving complaints
about policy and management
issues at the T. H. Stone Memorial
St. Joseph Peninsula State Park.
These issues 'surfaced recently at
a public workshop seeking input
on the management of the
Constitution Museum and park in
Port St. Joe.
A crowd of local residents
raised questions and voiced their

Wewa Library Committee

Seeks Local Matching Funds


Members of the Wewahitchka
Library Building Committee are
seeking the portion,of the remain-
ing $59,000 in local matching
funds needed to start construc-

Attention

Veterans
On August 11th, there will be
S a "Health Fair" for veterans in
need and for homeless veterans.
The fair will be conducted from
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (ET) at the
bGlf County Senior Citizens'
Center, located next to the county
courthouse in Port St. Joe.
The fair will have the "Florida
Veterans' Mobile Service Center"
bn site. The service center has the
capability to initiate claims with
the Department of Veterans'
Affairs and check status of pend-
ing claims through on-line con-
nections.
Medical screening and dental
screening will be available for vet-
erans in attendance.
Veterans from surrounding
counties including Bay, Calhoun,
Jackson, and Franklin are also
'invited.
Community organizations
wishing to participate are encour-
aged.

be obtained from Bo Williams,
Gulf County Veterans' Service
Officer, by calling (850) 229-6125.


an additional' $100,000 is- ear-
marked for paving and parking.
The only string attached to the
$256,000' is. that it is a 50/50
match grant. Several major bene-
factors have already helped the
library get close to their share of
$256,000 in matching funds.
"We're three quarters of the
way there thanks to the generosi-
ty of these contributorss" said
Allen McNair, building chairman.
The library committee has
several ongoing projects under-
way to help raise the final portion
of funds-$59,0Q0, including
sponsoring the "Catfish Festival"
portion of the Wewahitchka
Catfish Classic. This festival is
being held at Lake Alice Park on
Saturday, August 18th, from 9
a.m. till 4 p.m.
Library building committee
members are also selling memori-
al bricks for the library construc-
tion at a cost of $100.00 each.
During discussions on the
status of the project, McNair
extended his thanks to all who
had helped bring the project so
close to fruition.
He extended a special thanks
to Representative Kilmer. "We
have received this grant
($256,000) plus $100,000 in
paving funds due to the persis-
tence and forcefulness of
Representative Kilmer as she fol-
lowed this funding through the
legislature," McNair stated.
He also commended the city
fathers of wewahitchka for their
great cooperation.
Building of the library can't
start until the $59,000 in match-
ing funds can be raised, at which
time grant funds can be accessed.

How does the park property

water line into St. Joseph Bay and
Gulf of Mexico waters Impact
users of the nearshore waters?


*Regarding park concession

obtain a park concession permit,
and can rental motorized water

rented from a certified concession
agent?

Still Trying To Figure Out



Who Owns the Roads???

Board Decides To Ask Pioneer Resident George Core For Help


Gulf County commissioners
held another special session in
order to further discuss road clo-
sures by the St. Joe Company and
whether any of those roads
should actually be considered as
county roads.


This has been an ongoing
question for several years now
since the St. Joe Company closed
most of its property and leased
hunting rights on the land.
During this time span. a contin-
gency of local residents have

Home Destroyed In Early

Morning Blaze and Incidei


Shortly after 3:00 a.m. on
Friday, July 27th, a motorist
passing through..the Beacon Hill
area noticed a huge amount of
smoke near the intersection of
Highways 98 and 386. The
motorist took interest in the sus-
pect smoke and located its
source-a house at 9411 Auger
Avenue- which was on fire.
He quickly awakened a neigh-
bor who reported the incident to
the Gulf County Sheriffs Office.
Deputies and firefighters from the
St. Joe Beach and Highland View
Volunteer Fire Departments, as
well as Port St. Joe Fire
, Department, were immediately
dispatched to the scene.
Fire department personnel


questioned whether some of those
roads should be deemed county
roads.
Last week, Gulf County'
Commission Chairman Nathan
.Peters,- Jr. named committee
consisting; of Wayne Childers,
Sally Malone, and Gulf County
Chief Administrator Don Butler to
look into the road question in an
effort to determine whether the
county had title to any of these
closed roads. Peters reported to
the board that the committee had
met and member Wayne Childers
. reviewed their discussions.
Childers said the best way to
locate and determine ownership
of roads was through various
public records including commis-
sion meetings, state archives in
Tallahassee, Gulf County 'Clerk
records, Calhdun County Clerk
records (Gulf was part of Calhoun
County before separating), and
the National Archives in
Washington, D).C.
Commissioner Billy Traylor


challenged Childers' assessment,
saying that local, records' have
'been checked and ho county own-
ership has been found.
Some of the roads in question
are old Civilian Conservation
Corps (CCC) roads. Records that
prove these roads belong to some-
one other than the St. Joe
Company, which owns all sur-
rounding property, have not been
located. If records do exist, they
would likely be located in the
state or national archives, Letters
have been sent to both to see if
any information on the roads
does exist.
Ben Pridgeon, of Wewahitch-
ka, suggested the board might
solicit the help of George Core.
former Gulf County Clerk of Court
and pioneer resident.
Commissioner Traylor agreed
with Pridgeon and recommended
Core be asked about the roads'
ownership, "He knows more than

Two Gulf County residents
lost their lives in unrelated auto-
'mobile accidents during the
course of the past weekend.
The first accident occurred
during the early morning hours of
Saturday, July 28th, just west of
Highland View on Highway 98.
According to the accident
reports, at approximately 3:06
a.m., ET, Port St. Joe resident
John Charles Catha II, 35, was
walking in the eastbound land
when he was struck by a 1998
Pontiac driven by Rosemary
McDonald, 64, also of Port St.
Joe.
Catha was pronounced dead
at the scene as a result of the
impact. According to the report,
McDonald said she did not see the
victim prior to impact. The victim
was thrown over the front of the
car, striking the windshield and
the top of the vehicle.


The second fatal crash
occurred Sunday evening, July
29th, at approximately 9:35 p.m.,
CT. John Buckalew, Sr., 58, of
Beacon Hill, was fatally injured in
the single vehicle accident, just
south of Wewahitchka.
According to the accident
report, he was driving a 2000 two-
door Chevrolet when the accident
occurred. Traveling southbound
on Highway 71, 1.3 miles south of
Wewahitchka just after rounding
a curve, the driver apparently lost
control, hit a culvert, went air-
borne and collided with a group of
trees before the vehicle came to
rest on its top in a ditch on the
east shoulder of Highway 71.
The driver was trapped in the
vehicle until emergency medical
services personnel and wrecker
services joined efforts for extrica-
tion. Buckalew was pronounced
dead at the scene.

Park Issues


Being Addressed

Have you heard about what's going on with T. H. Stone
Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park?
Well, it seems there are several issues of concern that have
made many local lifetime users very hot under the collar. As it
turns out, most of these concerns are well on the way toward
being worked out through a series of workshop meetings. After
which, a public meeting will be announced and hopefully some
wonderful ideas will be announced and discussed describing
how local folks can maintain access to the end of the park and
still not compromise the park's designation as a wilderness
preserve.
That's right!ll Bet you didn't know that way back in 1975
the Department of Environmental Protection used "internal
procedures" to declare a large portion of T. H. Stone Memorial
St. Joseph Peninsula State Park a wilderness preserve-one of
just a handful in the state of Florida.
Now what the Department of Environmental Protection,
park officials, nor anyone else who may have been privy to this
information, forgot to tell us fine folks in Gulf County was they
decided to declare us a wildlife preserve..
It seems that over half of the park property (65%) has been
so designated and approximately 1,200 acres of the end/tip
portion of the park has a different set of rules than the other
portion of the site.
Now, contrary to what one might think, I don't have major
problems with the wilderness preserve deal. I, just like most
people I know, want to see the park maintained as one of
nature's marvels-something my grandchildren can one day-
look at with their children and say it's been that way for as
long as I can remember. 01' Paw Paw used to tell me stories
about when he was a kid ..... .
But, dadgum. at least tell us you plan on making the des-
ignation-get some input from local folks as to what they think
about management practices, and maybe, if it's not too much
trouble, let us know that you plan on changing the way things
have been run and managed at these areas since the park
came into existence back in 1964.
When the land was purchased under., the Land Acquisition
Trust Fund program back in 1964, the second paragraph of
the document says a lot about the intent of the purchase-
"Public outdoor recreation is the designated single use of the
property and there are no legislative or executive directives that
constrain the use of this property."
There is no question that constraints have been placed on
the park, its properties, and visitors to the site. Obviously, a
lot has changed since 1964 and, while this statement is very
plain in its intent, some changes are necessary to discover and
seek that balance between what's environmentally best and,
recreationally the best management procedures for the park
and visitors.
While I don't have major problems with the wilderness pre-
serve designation, it's how we got there that's the problem. If
Gulf County decided next week to use its "internal procedures"
and declare that the Department of Environmental Protection
no longer had power or authority in the county. how do you
think they would react to that? Need I say more-back in
1975, the Department of Environmental Protection and the
state pulled the wool over our eyes and slipped one by us.
Twenty-six years later, we're finding out what it all means.
Representatives at this work group meeting were more than
likely not even around when this action took, place. They also
showed a willingness to work through the questions and
issues at hand in such a manner as to allow local residents to
maintain reasonable access to at least an area of the tip of the.
point.
But, the one thing that was made quite plain to all present
was-the wilderness preserve is hereto stayll!

Vegetation Abounds Across the Countryside This


IT HAS BEEN A hectic week.
It reminds .me of when .I was
working, full time. Everything
running together in a jumble,
and requiring intricate schedul-
ing to take care of all I have to
take care of..
On top of that, it rained on
about half of the scheduled
events, making them harder to
accommodate without running
into each other.
The week began with me tak-
ing a few days off and going to
visit my brother-in-law and his
wife over the weekend. Even that
took some rearrangement of
things I have to do every week.
.Then, a couple of unscheduled
events happened, calling for even
more shuffling, of schedules.
I tell you, it's hectic, being
retired with supposedly nothing
to do, except what you want to!
I couldn't even sleep past
8:00 some mornings. It has been
a frantic week!

the harvesting of the okra crop.

WHEN I WENT OUT to water
both my buckets of garden, after
my trip, I found the squirrels had
eaten a fourth of my tomato crop.
They didn't even let it get
ripe, but just stripped, it off the.
vine and ate the heart out of it.
After all the peanuts I have'
bought and fed these ungrateful1
little creatures, they decimate my:
tomato crop like that. They did,
leave the other three tomatoes oni
the vine however.
It's a good thing I have so:
many tomatoes given me that I,
didn't really have to depend on;
my crop ripening and doing well;
to have a slice or two of nice ripe
tomato to eat. ,
The squirrels didn't bother
the lone eggplant which was
about cutting stage. I went ahead
and cut it to keep it from them,
anyhow. So far, this has been the'
fruits of my garden!

my first question was "does your
mother own a motel?"
In that first conversation
between us we talked about God,
sports, and girls. In that order.
And. in all the years I have known
Jim, we haven't talked about much
else. I realized in those first 15
minutes that college was going :.to
be all right.
Jim and I quickly bonded, and
we both helped to "culture" -one
another. I taught him about
wrestling, and he taught me about
hockey. I w know about cross
checking, blue lines, and standing
on your head, and Jim can execute
a wonderful figure four death 16ck,
My last semester living -with
Jim he asked meto be a grooms-
man in his wedding. He was mar.
ring Taryn Wilkinson. She was-a
music major, that we both met' at
Belmont. I was honored to be such
a close friend, but I was not ,sure
that I wanted to be in this shindig.
You see, in order to be in this wed-
ding, I would have to go to Texas;.
The only things I know about
Texas are dust, Ranger Walker and
the Alamo. Then Jim told me that
before the wedding we would go. to
a Houston Astros game, so I quick-
ly jumped on board. ,
Last week I flew out.. to
Houston to witness this union. As
the plane took off and got in the air
the first thought that came into my.
mind was do stewardesses'
have to be, pretty anymore? My:
flight attendant turned the row in'
front of me to stone as she. was'
passing out peanuts.
Then I thought about Jim and.
Taryn. I will never forget the first:.
time that he told me about her. He:
was so excited. He told me her
name was Taryn, so I asked if she'
is American?
"Yes. She is from Texas." -
,, "Jim, Iam not the most intell(-
gent guy in the world, but I do.
know that .you don't mess with
Texas!"
I : Bo, ani'I glidhe did not listen
to me! Taryn helped me see thing'
from a "woman's perspective." Sh'
taught me about etiquette. Before. I
met her, I thought a restaurant
gave you two forks in case 0u,
dropped one on the floor.
It was a joy getting to know
her. I never felt like a third wheel
when I was with them because
Taryn wouldn't let that happen,.
My best memories from college are
sitting in our dorm room talking
with Taryn about God, life, ani,
Jim.
I have never seen. two people
grow closer or love each other.
more than Jim and Taryn. Jim
went to recitals and concerts. and
Taryn never, missed, a baseball
game.. They hung out and .did
,everything together. In the fout.
years I have known them, I have
never seen :that post first ate
excitement go down one bit. Best

out'. to the local committee that
most of the problems that have
been aired were more a matter of
miscommunication than park pol-
icy. He expressed his feelings that
most of the items of concern
could be worked out and the only.
subject there would not be any
budging on is an area of the park
being designated:,as a wilderness
preserve.
- This occurred by "internal
Proceduree" according to Gregory,
back in 1975. This designation
came as a 'surprise to local resi-
dents when they first heard of it a
few weeks ago.
-. Approximately' 65 of the
park (1,000 acres, extending to
thd-tip of the peninsula) has the
wilderness designauon. This title,
brings into play a whole different
set. bf operating and management
procedures which include limiting
the riumbers of visitors and how.
they might impact the.
environment.
Currently, those limits are 60

talist than me."
He went on to get to the crust
of the question, "How many peo-
ple can visit the park by boat in
the wilderness preserve and it not
be a problem?"
Norton made an even more
direct plea to set aside a small
area that can be noted for visitor
use, while preserving the remain-
der of the wilderness area.
TDC Director Paula Pickett
told the park board that 32 con-
tacts have been made to her office
over the past few weeks register-
ing various complaints. Those
ranged from visitors being chas-,
tised for putting their toes on the
sand dunes, being told to leave
the property when they arrived by
boat, concession limits, and just
pure ol' good manners when deal-
ing with visitors.
Pickett gave an example of
two young boys playing at the foot
of the sand dunes. Rangers han-
dled the situation in such a man -
ner that the family (visitors to the
area) packed up their belongings
and. as hev were lea(i'ng. told

S.Woody Miley. Apalachicola

to be a framework of management
objectives in order to protect the
habitat for endangered species
which make their home on the
peninsula. During conversation it
was noted that snowy plovers, sea'
turtles, and the St. Andrews

cape.
Dr. Dusty May best answered
that concern though. as he
brought up the 'common sense
factor. "I hate to see, the state park'

The first of two required bud-
get hearings will be held on
Monday, September 10th, at 5:01
:in the 'Commission meeting room.
School Board Proposes
Increase to 7.332 Mills
The school board's funding is
,;a little different than most taxing
"authorities because it receives
federal, state, and local tax rev-
enues. Last year, the board had a
mileage rate of 6.9 mills; this year
the proposed rate of 7.332 is an
increase of almost four-tenths of
a mill.
But the state funded portion
ol the budget is -down over.
S, 5 000, while the local tax rev-
venues will be $860,000 higher
Sunder the proposed village rate.
S Big ticket items Of proposed
increase include a 1.25 mill capi-
tal outlay projects list equaling
$1.12 million. The list includes
the purchase of two new school


buses, maintenance (renovation
and repair work at the schools),
and new and replacement equip-
ment.
Other increases include an
$850 bonus per returning teacher
as mandated by the state.
The first public hearing on
the proposed budget will be held
on July 31st at 5:15 p.m. (ET) in
the school board meeting room.
The final public hearing is sched-
uled for September 11lth at 6:00
p.m.
Wewahitchka
Wewahitchka Clerk Don
Minchew spent a portion of the
city board's meeting Monday
evening explaining it millage rates
would likely have to increase in
the city this year because of a
drastic decrease in state revenue
sharing funds.
Wewa currently has a very


low millage rate of 2.11 mills.
Minchew told the board that rate
would likely have to climb to
approximately 4.0 mills in order
to make up for the shortfall. The
city has scheduled its first budget
workshop for August 2nd to begin
to fine tune the budget numbers.
Port St. Joe
Port St. Joe is once again the
community hardest hit by new tax
value numbers. The city's loss of
approximately $43.3 million in
taxable values comes as a result
of major cutbacks in the value of
the old paper mill site.
These cutbacks were expect-
ed, but just the same city com-
missioners have to deal with the
loss of 18.6% of the revenues
derived from the ad valorem tax
base.
The board held its first bud-
get workshop Tuesday to begin
reviewing budget numbers.


The following news article
is being reprinted this week in
The Star. in Its enUrety. with
our apologies for any confu-
sion or misconceptions \which
may exist following last
week's printing.
Unfortunately, a portion
or the article was mistakenly%
omitted., presenting an
incomplete understanding of
the taxing authorities' ongo-
ing budgeting process.

All of Gulf County's taxing
authorities, except for one, are
seeing reasonably large increases
in taxable property values for the
upcoming budget year. The Gulf
County Commission will see an
increase in taxable values jump-
ing from $825.75 million last year
to $943.53 million this year-
$117.5 million. The Gulf County
School Board will jump $117.5
million from $825.32 to $942.83
million.
The City of Wewahitchka will
see a jump froth $31.50 million to
$35.45 million in property values.
Port St. Joe took the only fall
among taxing authorities, drop-
ping $43.3 million from $233.42
to $190.09. According to City
Clerk Pauline Pendarvis, the fall
was directly related to continued
declines in the property values
placed on the Smurfit-Stone mill
site.
What all this means to taxing
authorities is it tells them how
much money they will have to
work with at the millage rate they
apply to taxable values. A key
word in discussions about these
numbers is the rollback rate. This
is the millage rate taxing authori-
ties would lower to in order to
raise the same number of tax dol-
lars they had budgeted last year.
In the case of both the county
commission and the school board,
if they left the millage rate the
same as the previous year's it
would amount to an increase in
tax income of approximately
three-fourths of a million dollars.
Gulf County Slightly Under
Last Year's Millage Rate
Gulf County commissioners
will have to advertise for an
increase in tax rates because they
did not Ieduce millage rates back
to the rollback rate. But, they did
set tentative village rates slightly
lower than the previous 'year.
Gulfs millage rates for the 2000-
01 budget year were 6.9570 mills,
the rollback rate is 6.2285 mills,
and the tentative rate set by com-
missioners during budget hear-
ings last week is 6.9485, (.0085
mills lower).
This equals an 11.56%
increase in tax revenues from the
previous year.
Big ticket areas, of increase
were led by the Gulf County
Sheriffs Office which asked for
and received a major increase in
salaries for deputies. Gulf County :
Sheriff Frank McKeithen
explained to the board that start-
ing corrections officers make
$3,000 more per year on the entry
level than Gulf County Sheriffs,'
Office deputies. He requested and
received funds to help bring those
salaries more in line with correc-
tional officers'.
Other increases were to
departments which used large
quantities of fuel or were impact-
ed by higher utility costs. This
was a reflection of increases in
those costs.
The board also anticipates
having approximately $2 million
in unbudgeted money.


A Gulf County man was
arrttested and charged with catfish
shocking after being caught in the
act Saturday morning on the
Apalachicola River.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission Officer
Bob Shipman reported the arrest
of John Richter, 33, of
Wewahitchka, and the subse-
quent charges of taking of fish by
illegal methods (shocking), and
.contributing to the delinquency of
ka minor.
Shipman said Richter and'
two juveniles were observed by,
him in their boat near the inter-
section of the Apalachicola and
Chipola Rivers, around the bot-
tom of Cut-Off Island, at approxi-
minately 11:00 Saturday morning,
i.July 28th. He further observed
'the two juveniles with dip nets
standing in the boat, and saw one
.of the two youngsters dip -a flat-
*head catfish from the river..
He approached the boat and
Seized the shocking apparatus,
illegal gear, and boat. Also, three
channel catfish and two flatheads
were released back into the water.

Boating under the influence
of alcohol (BUI) is a violation of
the law parallel to driving under
the influence (DUI) charges when


driving an automobile. FWC offi- ence 6f alcohol, according to FWC
cials are now issued an Alco- Officer Kent Harvey.


'.. .. ----





SFWC Officer Bob Shipman shows the shocking apparatus con-
fiscated in the arrest last weekend on the Apalachicola River.


A .08 blood alcohol level is
considered to be under the influ-


Sensor IV portable sobriety test-
ing unit as part of their field test-
ing arsenal.

A recent boating accident
where the use of alcohol was
deemed to be a contributing fac-
tor, and several boating under the
influence incidents have prompt-
ed a concern on the issue.

In the case of adult boat
users, BUI tests with the Alco-
Sensor IV can establish probable
cause and warrant further evalu-
ation with Gulf County Sheriffs
Office sobriety testing equipment.
But, in the case of minors, and
because it is illegal to drink under
the age of 21, the machine's test
results do hold up in court for
anyone testing .02 or higher and
cases for underage drinking and
or BUI can be made.


The device shown above, an Alco-Sensor IV, is now part of
,each FWC officer's arsenal to help prevent boating accidents.

Catfish Festival Benefits Library


Dear Editor,
As you know, the annual
Catfish Tournament has been a
regular event for several years. It
has been an economic stimulus,
for the community while raising:
funds for the City Employees
Scholarship Fund. Last year there
were 180 entries for the fishing
event, which was staged at
Gaskin Park, starting on Friday
and ending Saturday afternoon. Ift
is expected to grow larger this
year and has outgrown the ability
of the city employees to do all of
the work in addition to their
employment duties.
Last year the city held a
Catfish Festival on Saturday, con-
current with the final day of the
tournament. It was mildly suc-
cessful, and offered encourage-
ment for its continued existence
and improvement. This year, the
"City Fathers" have delegated
management and operations for
the Tournament to Wewahitchka
Search & Rescue and the festival
to the Wewahitchka Public
Library. The combined events are
now 'The Wewahitchka Annual
Catfish Classic."
The Search & Rescue are
sharing income with the City
Employees Scholarship Fund. The
City Library is keeping all of the
proceeds which will be used
toward our building fund, as we
still need $59,000 to match the
state contribution of $256,000. In
the future these festival proceeds
will be used for library programs
or equipment.
The Library's Catfish Festival
hopes to function as ,an annual
event which will provide a day of
family fun and entertainment for
local citizens and visitors as well
as a means of generating income
for local individuals, organiza-

Dear Readers-
I want to thank my patients and the citizens of Gulf County and sur-
rounding areas for allowing me the privilege of serving you the past three
years. With mixed emotions. I am leaving the Gulf County Health
DepanmentDenlal Clinic to pursue private dental practice. Behind,
remains a wonderful patient family and a dental staff and administration
that no words can adequately commend.
I especially want to thank Mr. Douglas Kent for his amazing ability
to make the Gulf County Health Department a model for other health
I agencies throughout the slate. Likewise, I express my gratitude to my
leam of dental staff who made my tenure in Wewahitchka effortless and
rewarding. Those dental staff members include: Ms. Vickie Wade, Ms.
Michelle King, Ms. Sebrelia Daniels. Ms. Gretchen Upchurch, Ms. Donna
Roberts. Ms. Lesia Webb. Ms. Diane Flowers, and Ms. Joy Creamer. To
all the staff in the other valuable departments at the GCHD, thank you for
your warmth and kindness.
Gulf County is fortunate to have Dr. Ellis Fuller, who along with the
other dental team members, will continue to protect the oral health and
smiles ol all who visit them in Wewahitchka.
Again, thanks to all of you, patients and staff, whom I have had the
pleasure and honor ol working with. You'll be greatly missed.
Sincerely,
Alexander J. Dudley. D.M.D.

The Festival should be
thought of as a community bazaar
where all kinds of goods and ser-
vices are offered by local folks. It
may be necessary to invite outside
vendors as done by similar events
such as Tupelo, Scallop festival,
and Goat Day, etc., if we don't get
enough local participation.
However, the Catfish Festival
is unique in that it seeks to bring
the community closer together
while generating income for local
participants. To that end, the


complacent or downright lazy to
ignore an opportunity to expose
its services or products to the
local community, which is its pri-
mary customer base and revenue
source. Included are insurance
agencies, auto parts, home and
auto repair, landscape materials
and service, real estate agents,
title insurance agents-in other
words, every business in town
except monopolies.
The business should offer a
special priced service or product
during this event to attract atten-
tion, should be manned with
knowledgeable persons and ade-
quate literature, magnetic busi-
ness cards and other functional
reminders of the business name.
If a local business is exposed to as
few as 100 local potential cus-
tomers (that's 27 cents each) that
business will have a profitable
day if the contacts are followed up
in the future. This should be
thought of by individuals and
businesses as a recurring annual
event reminding us "to trade with
your neighbor: and keep; your
money in Gulf County."
There is no charge for exhibit

should be offered the opportunity
to bethe corporate sponsor at a
small fee this year of $2000 and
would have right of first refusal
next year and each year thereafter
as long as they choose to sponsor
the event. The funds will be used
to promote the Catfish Festival
and its sponsor. We must obtain
outside visitors and the only way
is thru advertising. Once the
Catfish Classic event' is well

standard fee for a 12 foot by 12
foot exhibitors space is: $27 (tax
included), but for Gulf County
participants only. The exhibitor
may choose to pay 10% of total
sales made by the end of the day
instead of $27 upfront. This is
based on the honor system. This
option is offered to encourage
those who 'might want to .sell
homemade baked goods, canned'
food products, quilts, crochet
items, small arts and or crafts
items, etc.
No community member will
be excluded by this pricing sys-
tem, but to the conLrarn, will be
encouraged to participate with
this "nothing to lose and all to

group that raises money during

SWhen asked if he would be
interested in helping the county,
during a phone interview with
Core Wednesday morning, he
said, "Yea, it would be fun."
Core said he was not aware of
any records or written agreements
where the land owners gave over
the CCC road property when the
rods were constructed. But, he
could not say there wasn't some
recorded agreement either.
Core has, in fact, already

worked on some road research.
Commissioner Carl Fox
responded, "I'm just ready to find
out what we own and don't own."
The board was in agreement
to seek Core's input on the road
issue.
St. Joe Timberland President
Clay Smallwood addressed the
board reiterating that he
approached the board at the
request of the commission to try
and find a solution.
He went on to observe that


the board appeared interested in
doing further research on the
roads, therefore the St. Joe
Company felt it appropriate ,to
withdraw their previous offer to
open Luke Ford Road and in
exchange the county would .relin-
quish any claims on Count3y Line
Road, Road 14, Road 14A, and a
small portion of Road 5.
"When you get your research
done and get ready to sit down
and talk about it, let us know,"
Smallwood concluded.

If you smoke:
Your baby can be born too
early, before the lungs are ready.,
Your'baby may have to stay in
the hospital after you go home.
Your baby may be under-
Weight (under, 5-1/2 potinds). '
Babies who are underweight are
often sick and have many health
problems.
,How does smoking hurt your
v e baby?.:
When you smoke, you take in
Many poisons. One is a drug
called nicotine, .
Another is carbon monoxide.
It also comes out of a car's
exhaust pipe. '
Nicotine and carbon monox-
ide keep youi- baby from getting
the food and oxygen he or she
needs to grow.
That sounds venr scary, and
it is. The aood nev.-s is that you
can do something about it. Il'you
stop smoking. you can help your
baby to be born healthy and
strong.
n Reasons to Stop:
Although it rrught not be easy.
mansy women have stopped. Here
are some of their reasons for stop-
ping. although any reason is
good reason to stop.
I want a healthy baby.
I want to look good. I don't
want wrinkles and yellow teeth.
I'm tired of my smoking habit
having a hold over me.;
I want to stay healthy. I want'.
to be around for my children for a

I would rather spend, the

You may have noticed! small,
pustule-like growth on leaves 'and
stems of other healthy looking
plants. Perhaps you've wondered
what these strange looking, often
round shaped, formation are,
what caused them, and whether
they damage plants. These
growths are known as, galls.
They're actually quite common,
and provide no real cause for
alarm. However, some people feel
they detract from plant appear-
ance.
Galls are abnormal growths
that develop on plants in
response to insect stimulation.
This means that wherever gallT
forming insects lay eggs, pr wher-
ever such' insect larvae feed,
you're likelyto find galls. They're
usually on the .underside of
leaves, or on twigs and -stems.
Each gall is characteristic of the
insect that causes it. Immature
insects are often found inside
developing galls. Galls rarely
cause serious harm to plants.
Still, people seem concerned, or
serious about them.
Gall are formed from plant
cells. It's believing they: result
from a reaction between plant tis-
sues and insect eggs as they
develop. Although the most com-
mon places for galls to form are
'leaves; and stems, they may also
develop on trunks, flowers, fruit,
leaf shoot terminals, petiol0s, and
roots. As Isaid, most plants aren't
hurt by galls, even if they have
lots of them. But if you're not
crazy about galls developing on
your trees and shrubs, you may
want to know how to prevent or
control them.
Unfortunately, once galls,
form, it's impossible to eliminate
them. or the pests inside with

insecticides. The pests do very
nicely within the enclosed galls,
where they're protected from
chemical applications. Of course,
galls on leaves will drop off when
the leaves do, but galls that form
on stems, trunks, or roots may
Persist for several years. And if a
plant is unhealthy, or under
stress, it will be damaged to a
greater extent than a healthy one.
'You can prevent galls to some
extent by taking good cultural
care of your plants-by paying
close attention to fertilization, irri- :
gation, pruning, and other gener-
al maintenance. Some galls that
occur on stens and limbs can be
hand picked and destroyed. Also,
several parasitic wasps arrack
gall-forming insects. These bene-
ficial wasps are active in late r
spring and early summer. So, you
might want to .avoid using pesti-
cides during these months.
SGalls form on a wide variety
of plants. but especially on oaks.
Some of the insects that cause
galls are aphids. phylloxera (fih-
LOX-er-alh), 'midges or gall gnats.
psyllids (SILL-ids), and cynpids
(sin-IP-ids) or gall wasps.' Over
750 species of cinipids alone are
found in the United States and
Canada. And of these, about 80
percent produce galls 'specifically
on oaks.

Pre-School Is Now Open!


Education, students with involved
families are much more likely to
graduate from high school, and
will earn an average of 5200,000
more in their lifetime than high
school dropouts.'
Schools cannot do the job
alone. That is why Boys & Girls
Clubs of America (B&GCA) devel-
oped Proect Learn-a comprehen-
sive educational enhancement
strategy encouraging students to
participate in high-yield learning
activities that reinforce skills and
knowledge taught in the class-
room.
As a result of $7.5 million in
funding provided by JCPenney
Afterschool, more than 2,000
Boys & Girls Clubs across the
country have been, able to imple-
ment Project Learn and train their
staff. However, Club professionals
agree, the biegesl challenge is get-
ting, parents to support Pr6ject
Learn, which a Columbia
University study found could
increase a child's overall GPA by
11 percent.
"Many parents of the young
people we serve had their own bad
experiences with schools, so they
are reluctant to get involved," said
Roxanne Spillett, president, Boys
& Girls Clubs of America. "Our
goal is to break this cycle of dis-
engagement by providing high-
yield learning, activities that can
bring children and families


together to enjoy learning."
The best news yet is that par-
ents can easily engage themselves
in their child's educational efforts
by doing the following:
Read aloud with your child
every day.
Talk with your child about
the value of hard work and the
importance of education.
Show your child that you
are learning, too. Let them see
you reading for pleasure, and talk
with them about ideas and events
that affect your life.
Check homework every
night.
Ask your child about what
happens during the school day.
Don't accept "nothing" as an
answer! Instead, try asking,
"What was the most interesting.
thing you learned, today?"
Limit your child's television
viewing on school nights.
Children who watch too much
television learn less and get lower
grades than students who watch
less.

It seems just like yesterday
that the school bell rang and
classes were dismissed for the
summer. But already, parents
everywhere are beginning to,panic
because of the annual battles
they will face trying to get their
kids excited about the school
year.
This may be a parent's worst
nightmare, but it's one that must
be faced given these facts:
Students who have one or
more parents involved in their
education are more likely to get
an "A" and less likely to be sus-
pended, expelled or repeat a
grade.
Teacher surveys show that
involved parents are the single
most important partners public
schoolP need to help students
learn. Also, teachers provide more
support and encouragement to
children whose parents are
involved.
It's a matter of money..

Thiswill be our final opportu-
nity to officially communicate in
writing before school begins on
August 8th. It is our hope that the
information on:this page will be
very beneficial to you in planning'
for clothing, for school supplies
and for family activities.
h Please keep in mind also that
the School Advisory Council and
teachers alike have recommended
that book bags not be brought to
school. The consistent problems
with them. in terms of safety,
make them a liability and an acci-
dent waiting to happen..
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.fantasticjob. We have new floor-
ing being applied in the commons
area, so a new look will definitely
catch you by surprise.
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 team
leader for the junior high. This
addition further develops and
accentuates our desire and need
toTriake our junior high an excel-
lent school. A team leader will
provide a point person for all the
faculty, staff, students, and par-
ents in the junior high. He or she
will assist the current administra-
tion with curriculum, personnel,

-P f Faith Christian School


By: Reverend Bill Taylor "'
SFaith Christian School, a mi-
nistry of Faith Bible Church, will
be opening its doors to children in
this area for the 28th year begin-
-ning with orientation. Monday,
SAugust 13th. The school began In
,the.fall of 1974 with one dozen
five year old kindergarten stu-
dents and now enrolls students
,from ages two through grade
eight .
If you are not aquainted with
Faith Christian, you are invited to
visit the school at 801 20th Street
in Port St. Joe, to see our facilities
'and talk to .the .administrative
.staff. Later, you may meet the
teachers -and sit in on our classes.
We at Faith Christian believe
that a good education includes
more than reading, writing and
arithmatic, although we major in
these, The real difference for us. is
an education that is -centered on
,God's word. Our textbooks .and
our teachers relate all studies to
God, who is the author of all
learning. We teach the Bible
everyday in every class, and stu-,
dents also memorize Bible verses
that will remain with them all
their lives. The most important
fact that our students learn is
that God loves them uncondition-
ally' and that He sent His Son to
die for them that they might have
life and have it abundantly. Only
in heaven will we see the final
results of our ministry.
One of our academic
strengths is our reading program.
We emphasize training in phonics
beginning in two and three year
old kindergarten, and our stu-
dents are sounding out words and
reading simple sentences and" sto-
ries when only four and five years
old. Students who begin and con-
tinue with us become excellent-


readers by second and third
grade-some in first' grade. This
gives the student a solid founda-
tion for all subjects a-eas later in
school. '
Math computation is also
stressed and students memorize
addition and subtraction facts as
well as multiplication and division
tables. This, with a good back-
ground in fractions, will prepare
the student for' algebra and' 'all
upper school math courses, as
well as life-long needs.
Our students begin .cursive
writing in K-5, aiding, them in the
left-to-right sequence training
which is so valuable in reading.
Not only that, but it is very diffi-
cult to get letters "up-side down
and backward" in cursive writing.
Our science and history curricu-
lum and textbooks are second to
none. We invite you to look them
:over, and read them yourselves.
Our language program is very
strong in grammar usage, punc-.
tuation, capitalization, and sen-
tence construction. Students are
encouraged to write poetry and
prose, and in grades five through
eight. essay papers are assigned.
We devoted two class periods a
day to language and literature in
our junior high. Art, music, and
recreation round out our pro-
gram.
Our sincere desire is for all
individual students to achieve
and to do their very best. The
unofficial Bible verse for Faith
Christian School has been II
Timothy 2:15, "Study to show
thyself approved unto God, a
workman that needeth not to be
ashamed, rightly dividing the
word of truth." Please pray with
us for a good and fruitful 2001-
2002 school year.

ACT scores are accepted by
virtually all U.S. colleges and uni-
versities, including Ivy League
schools. The ACT is not an apti-
tude test-it is an academic
achievement test that measures
students on what they learned in
high school. Because it is curricu-
lum-based, colleges use ACT
score for more than admissions
decisions-they use scores to place
freshmen into classes that the
students are academically pre-
pared to handle. For admissions'
decisions, colleges use ACT scores
along with a student's high school
grade point average, college prep
courses taken, extracurricular
activities and other information.
The test fee is $24 ($27 in
Florida).

The ACT Assessment is given
in all 50 states and is the number
one college entrance exam taken
by high school students in 25
states. There are four sections to
the exam: English, reading, math.
and science reasoning.

Students can register for the
ACT by getting information from
their high school couselor or,
online at ACT's website,

helpful information, sample tests
and the opportunity to order test
prep materials including an inter-

great summer days and read.
How important this is for all stu-
dents, but college-bound students
need to look at this as a necessi-
ty. Did you know that most
incoming freshman at four year
universities have already read
304 novels by the time they enter
college? That, dear friends, is
your competition!
FHSAA has announced that
seniors can register to be "student
officials." For a $10 fee, they can
train to be athletic officials. With,
the shortage of referees, this is a
great way to fill the gap.
There has been a dramatic
drop in the number of partici-
pants in the Food Service
Program. One reason seems to be
that people believe they lose food
stamps if they lose welfare. If this
news is important to you, please
call 1-800-224-3470.
Students will be required to
have parking permits to have a
car on campus. More will follow
on this; however, 'please make
sure you have a license .And
insurance when permits are sold.
A new grading scale is nowv in
effect. It looks like this: 90-100 =
A; 80-89 = B; 70-79 = C; 60-69 =

Eating garlic and onions-
and avoiding brushing are obvi-
ous causes of bad breath, but
there are other sources as well.
Dentures need daily clean-
ing to prevent bacteria buildup
often associated with "denture
breath." Using a good dental
brush after soaking will do a
better job. Post-nasal drip is
another source. It's commonly
caused by air pollution and dry-
ness and results in increased


The lungs can also be a
source of halitosis. Did you
know that a cigarette smoked at
ten in the morning can still be
on your breath until two that
afternoon? The smoke and its
by-products enter the lungs, are
absorbed into the bloodstream
and can be carried back to the
lungs and exhaled hours later.
Don't ignore bad breath.
Discuss it with your dentist. If he
can't find the answer, you'll
probably be referred to a physi-
cian. It could be a symptom of a
systematic disease like dia-
betes.

Keep Turtles In the Dark


By: Barbara Eells, Wildlife
Rehabilitator, Sea Turtle
Permit Holder
We, the Gulf and East Bay
Sea Turtle Patrol, Inc. and the
Aquatic Preserve (St. Joseph's
Peninsula), ask all of our commu-
nity to help the sea turtle hatch-
lings get to the water safely.
The hatchlings from the first
nest of the season for the
G/EBSTP, emerged on East Cape
San Blas sometime Saturday
night or Sunday morning. The
volunteer turtle patrol members
pointed out that it was a perfect
emergence There was no distrac-
tion of lights to interfere with the
hatchlings going straight toward
the natural horizon and into the
water. It was a beautiful, star-
studded night and only two out of
many appeared to have been pre-
dated by ghost crabs.
A story to share with you was
one of a large "Mama" which
began around 10:30 Friday night.
A big 39 inch female came ashore
to lay her eggs. at the Gulf/Bay
County line and chose the area
closest to the Bay County beach
access road in front of 386. She
4 had gone to the dune area adja-
cent to the road and tried about
four different places to lay, but
was not satisfied. She then chose
a spot in the Mexico Beach access
road which took her a great
length of time after she started
digging her nest cavity.
This took her more time
because she digs the nest hole
using the rear flippers, but she
was missing most of her right rear'
flipper, so the left rear flipper had
to do most of the digging and
sand removal. She laid her clutch
of eggs, covered her nest site and
proceeded to leave to go back into
the water.
Scenario: The road and beach
was aglow from a street lamp and
a billboard sign at the junction of
Hwy 98 and 386.
"Big Mama" laid her nest
about 50 feet from the highway.
As she left her nest site, she pro-


ceeded toward the brightest light
in the horizon to within about 30
feet of the highway, turned
around and headed toward the
water which was about 140 feet
away...so we thought!
She got past the primary
dune line, and turned around
because all she could see was
light glow on the beach, no dark
area for her to see the natural
horizon, and headed back toward
the dune line. She crossed over it,
and into dense sea oats and vege-
tation. Now, turtles, after having
laid, will go so many feet and rest
before they reach the water and
she did the same. She came with-
in 30 feet of Hwy 98, and by now,
was totally confused. Her goal
was to reach that brightest light,
the street lamp, as perhaps it was
the moon to her! She did turn,
however, and proceeded toward
her nest site as we sighed a big
sigh of relief!
But, that was short-lived,
because all she could see was the
light on the sand, so she turned
around still determined to get to
the "moon".
This time she was within 15
to 20 feet of 98. We called the Gulf
County Sheriffs office for help in
case she went toward the
Highway. We had already tried
different methods to turn her, but
to no avail. The last resort was
using two pieces of plywood and
our seven people to form a back-
drop for her, making a dark area
in front of her (we ,had tried this
already, but without the,guide of
the plywood) to get her to the
water.
Once we got her out of the
vegetation, and she could really
see the dark corridor provided
and the horizon and using the
plywood as a wedge to guide her
and keep her on the path toward
the water, it was go from there on!
She went into the water around
3:00 a.m. and swam away never
to look back! .
The feelings of the seven who


worked feverishly to help her get
back into her natural habitat,
were of concern for her well-
being, as her large body was car-
rying about 400 lbs. across the
area; she was stressed and
exhausted as she was determined
to find her way and she was deter-
mined to go to that lamp!
Would she have a heart
attack? We felt invasive and
manipulating as we tried to deter
her toward the water. She was
afraid and exhausted, but seemed
relieved when she knew she was
headed into the right direction.
We were also relieved.
We know, in this case, that
she would have gone across the
road that night. We are grateful
that someone saw her come in to
lay and knew to call. That night
could have proved to be fatal to
unsuspecting motorists and to
her.
And, this is an older, adult
sea turtle! She had nested before
this year and probably at least
once during this season, so she
knew where she needed to be
going to her natural habitat-the
water. But, there she was, caught
up in man's need.
Think of the hatchlings! The
brightest light on the vast horizon
is what they adjust and go toward
when they emerge from their nest
cavity. In this case, the brightest'
light on the horizon -would have
been the street lamp and bill-
board sign, and it would have
been sure death to them, as they
are only two inches long and
would not have been seen as e'as-.
ily. .
Just, riding the beach ',at'
night, particularly at Beacon Hill
and' St. Joe Beach where lights
were not a big problem before last'
year, I saw spot lights on, both on
the beach side and the road side
of the highway, mostly outdoor
and under the carport lights, with
two houses now having lights on
either side of their walkovers!
These could be changed to motion


Sea turtles are still coming ashore to lay their clutches of eggs. Some of the earliest nests are already
beginning to hatch. Turn off those lights-help these ancient creatures find their way back to the water.

Children Return to School


i It's that time of year
again-put away the beach bags
,and get out the back
packs-school is just around the
corner. This is an ideal time for
parents and students to develop
strategies to reduce the stress
and anxiety that comes with the
start of a new school year.


Begin by establishing daily
routines before school starts.
According to Harvard child psy-
chologist Dr. Larry Kutner, a.k.a.
"Dr. Dad," this is especially impor-
tant for young children since they
have more difficulty with transi-
tions. One way to do this is to
practice your morning schedule
the week before school actually
starts. Find out how long it takes
to get up, get dressed, eat break-
fast and head .out the door. This
will help alleviate any last-minute
morning hassles.
Designate a space in your
home specifically for doing home-
work. It may be better if this area
is not in the child's room because
there are often too many distrac-'
tions there. Deye1opin g good
study habits at an early age will
help your child improve response:
ble behaviors long-term.
DiscuLs how your children
might deal with bullies and other
situations ,that concern them. If
your children are prepared to deal
with difficult circumstances,
there will be fewer problems and
worry when they arise. For strate-
gies on discussing these issues
with your younger children, Dr.
Kutner recommends www.tonys
time.com, a program developed
.jointly by Stand for Children and
Tony's Pizza. The Web site fea-
tut-es tip's arid activities that teach
children about responsibility,
respect, rules and relationships.


Review safety and school
rules with your children to avoid
any confusion. It's important to
understand how to safely board
and exit a bus, as well as howv to
cross streets before. and after
school. In addition, discuss what
is appropriate to bring into a
classroom and what is not.
Set a time each day to talk
with your' children about their
school day. This conversation
could take place during dinner, in
the car, or right before bed. Have
reasonable expectations for what
the conversation will be' like.
Asking, "How was school today?"
is likely to get a standard
response of, "Fine." Asking more
specific questions such as, "What
was the rfiost interesting -thing
you learned today?" may be a bet-
ter way to start a conversation.
But whichever approach you
choose,, it is important to main-
tain an open dialogue with your
children and be aware of their
daily activities and what they are
learning.

Most important, be enthusi-
astic. Acknowledge your chil-
dren's concerns about the chal-
lenges of a new school year, but
help them get excited about learn-
ing and making new friends. By
preparing yourself and your chil-
dren ahead of time, you'll pave the
way for a successful start of the
school year.

Scallop Festival

Attracts Great Talents
This year's festival is sure to
please Gulf County's residents, as
it is quickly attracting the atten-
tion of talented local artists, as
well as musicians from through-
out Florida and neighboring
states. Beginning on Friday,
August 31st, you'll have the
chance to see two of Port St. Joe's
favorites, George Boyer and
Cletus Heaps. Later, the Nashville
talents of Michael McGrew and
Friends will fill the park with
sounds of country.
McGrew was recently featured
at the Indian Pass Raw Bar, as
well as at the Dockside Cafe. He is
an up and coming star that has
performed with Tom T. Hall,
Collin Raye, and Deborah Allen, to
name just a few.
On Saturday, September 1st,
the action continues with
Tallahassee newcomer Rachel
Hough, Channel 7's Neysa Trout,
our own lovable Trisha Bell, and
two great groups, Southern Star
and Sons of Thunder. The last
sounds of the evening will again
be featuring Michael McGrew and
Friends.
The last day of the festival,
September 2nd, will feature Mary
Lou Cumbie, the Newton Family
and the Assembly of God choir.
They are still looking for local tal-
ent to help make this year's festi-
val bigger and better than ever.
The deadline for scheduling is
August 15th.' Contact Deborah
Draper, at the Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce at 227-
1223 .

employees. But there is another
type of popular investment
"option" known as the equity
option. For investors that are able
to accurately predict price move-
ments of a stock within a specific
time frame, equity options may
provide the opportunity to reap
impressive gains without commit-
ting the large amount of money
needed to buy shares outright.
However, if the prediction proves
wrong and the options contract
expires, the investor stands to
lose 100% of the investment.
Equity options are contracts
that grant the buyer the right, but
not the obligation, to buy or sell a
stock at a specific price (the strike
price), on or before a specified-
date (the expiration date).
Options typically have a lifespan
of three, six, or nine months. An
option giving investors the right to
buy a stock at an agreed price is
known as a call, while an option
giving you the right to sell a stock
at an agreed price is referred to as
a put. The amount paid for the
option (the premium) may be sub-
stantially less than the amount
that would have to be paid if the
shares were bought outright.
With long option positions
investors can manage the level of
risk involved, because the premi-
um plus commission fees are the
most one can lose.
Buying Call Options
When buying call .options for
a particular company, the
investor is expressing that he or
she expects that the stock price
will rise before. reaching the
option's, expiration date. For
example, if you expected shares of
XYZ, currently priced at $100 to
increase, you could buy an XYZ


December 100 call option that
would give you the right to pur-
chase 100 shares of XYZ stock at
a cost of $100 per share at any
time before the option expires in
December. The premium, or cost,
of this call option would be deter-
mined by the expiration date and
the stock's volatility. For this
example, let's assume a premium
of 3 1/2 ($350).
If the price of XYZ climbs to
$110 before the December expira-
tion date and you decide to
redeem your option, you can buy
the 100 shares of XYZ at $100 a
share for a total cost of $10,350
(includes the premium paid for
the option) and simultaneously
sell the shares at the market price
($110) for $11,000, generating a
profit of $650-nearly twice the
value of the premium.
If the stock price of XYZ falls


instead of rising, you can take
action before the option expires in
an effort to reduce your losses.
Because the stock value has gone
down, the premium is also likely
to be reduced. By closing the
position (or selling the option con-
tract) at a lower premium before
the contract expires you can par-
tially offset the potential loss.
Following our example, if XYZ
moves down to $90 a share, and
the premium is lowered to $200,
you might close, or sell the option
contract, losing only the differ-
ence between the original premi-
um ($350) and the sales premium
($200), or $150. This loss is sub-
stantially less than the lost mar-
ket value of the actual shares of
stock. All actions must be taken
before the option expires, or it
becomes worthless.
Both calls and puts can be
exercised with many different

Making the Most of

Your Garage Sale
Having a garage sale has fast
become America's most popular
way to recycle its household
goods and bring in some cash.
The best time to have a sale is just
before or after you move, when
you're forced to handle every one
of your possessions-but anytime
you're ready to clean, and sort
and simplify your life is a good
one.

With the right approach, hav-
ing a garage sale can be a refresh-
ing experience as well as a smart
financial move. But many people
aren't quite sure how to tackle the
project or do it in a way that's
both efficient and effective. Here
are some tips from an expert to
help make the most of the experi-
ence.

Give yourself time
Give yourself plenty of lead
time to gather merchandise for
your garage sale. Start .weeks
beforehand and, sort through all
your closets, drawers and boxes.
Do you really need every utensil
in your kitchen cabinets or all the
Christmas decorations in your
attic? Offering both volume and
variety will attract shoppers as
well as bring in the most income.
Sell large-ticket items through
alternative means
Get the most for your large-
ticket items by not selling them at
your garage sale, where shoppers
expect to pay rock-bottom prices.
Instead, before your sale, adver-
tise items worth $20 or more
through other free or low-cost
outlets, such as neighborhood
newspapers, student publications,
or coffee-shop 'bulletin boards.
Explore the options available
through internet web sites and re-
sale stores that specialize in
books, appliances, photography,
sporting goods or baby items.


Take a retailer's approach to
pricing and display
Price your merchandise so
that customers will feel like
they're getting a bargain-10 to 20
percent of retail value, more for
items that are like-new. Visit
other people's sales to get ideas
for yours, and have a mirror avail-
able if you plan to sell clothing.
Overall, be sure to mark prices
clearly, display merchandise
between knee level and eye level,
and rearrange your display as
items are sold-just as retailers do.
