Wewahitchka
Gulf County sheriffs
deputies, along with beverage
agents, raided and closed a local
bar Saturday night in the
Wewahitchka area.
Sheriff Frank McKeithen said
his department began an investi-
gation around June after reports
surfaced that the drug "scoop"
' was being sold from the
Crossroads Bar.
Sheriffs deputies, working
with department operatives, pur-
chased "scoop' from Brian
Buckalew (29) who said he was
the manage- of the establishment.
.John Buckalew, Jr. (31), who
actually was the licensed operator
of the bar, was charged with prin-
cipal to the sale of a controlled
substance ("scoop"), while Brian
Buckalew was charged with sale
of a controlled substance
("scoop").
Beverage agents also placed
an administrative charge on the
business for possession of an ille-
galgambling device.
Sheriff McKeithen said the
"scoop," which is also known as
the date rape drug, has shown up
lately in several areas.
This substance can be very
dangerous and even deadly.
"Scoop" is made from ingredients
such as floor stripper, Red Devil
lye, and other ingredients that are
extremely dangerous.


Gulf County has received offi-
cial notification from the
Department of Air Force that it
has been named as a candidate
for leasing the Air Force's historic
properties at Cape San Blas.
These properties include the
two lighthouse keeper's quarters
and the Cape San Bias light-
house. During the next step of
this selection/leasing process,
Gulf County is to submit a com-
prehensive plan for the rehabilita-
tion, maintenance, and operation
of the lighthouse and keeper's
quarters.
Gulf submitted the leasing
proposal on behalf of the St.
Joseph Historical Society which
has asked to sub-lease the prop-
erty and make it a historical/edu-
cational site in the county.
This is the fruition of a deal
that was discussed several
months ago by the Air Force,
county, and historical society. At
that time, Gulf went to bat for the
Air Force to receive the former
Coast Guard property with the
understanding that Gulf would
lease the property and the Air
Force would assist with the
process of transition and restora-
tion of the structures.
St. Joseph Historical Society
lighthouse project chairman Betty
McNeill said, "We'll begin working
with the Florida State Historic
Preservation Office (SHPO), look-
ing for grant funds and assistance
to refurbish the lighthouse com-


PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, AUGUST


Mill View Test Reports Are In



Preliminary Data Shows No Risk; Additional Testing Planned


Back during the 1940's and
early 1950's, the former St. Joe
Paper Company filled a wetlands
area west of the mill site with
waste from the mill's operation.
Items spread over the area
included tree bark, boiler ash,
"lime grit," and slag. In the mid-
50's, the 100-acre Mill View
Subdivision was created on top of
some of this filled area.
According to a preliminary
report from the Florida
Department of Health Bureau of
Environmental Epidemiology,
testing for five metals and
arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury.
and nickel have been conducted
in the area.
The report indicates that in
1990 the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (FDEP)
found arsenic and solvents in
groundwater beneath the
Apalachicola Northern Railroad
property. FDEP followed in June
2001 with soil sample tests from'
the Mill View Subdivision. Thirty-
two samples were taken from a
,predetermined grid of the test
area. Soil was tested from zero, to
12 inches deep in the 32 sampling
locations.
The preliminary report con-
cludes the concentrations of cad-
mium, lead, mercury, (and nickel.


in the Mill View Subdivision soil
(0-12 inch depth) were all below
health-based screening levels and
thus are unlikely to cause any ill-
ness. The concentration of arsenic
in soil was above health-based
screening levels at eight of 32
locations and were considered
further.
The Florida Department of
Health (FDOH) estimated daily
dose of arsenic due to accidental,
ingestion of soil or inhalation of
contaminated dust. They then
compared this dose to doses of
arsenic-known: to cause illness
in people and/or animals. FDOH
concluded that these doses would
not cause of increase risk of ill-
ness.
The report went on to recom-
mend further study work be done
in the area including:
1) Test the soil in the Mill
View Subdivision where ash, "lime
grits," and slag are visible at the,
surface. Include analyses, for all
contaminants associated with
paper mill waste. Test the top
three inches of soil .rather than
the top 12 inches of soil (area
most likely to come in contact
with people); and
2) Test existing irrigation
wells in the Mill View Subdivision.


,'FDOH will continue to assist Department by reviewing new
the Gull' County Health environmental data on the Mill


View site as
gathered.

Redistricting Line



1 Different for BoRards-


Gulf Coast Parkway Is Not A


.8 ~New Idea, But Just A New Name


The Gulf County Board of
County Commission and Gulf
County School Board appear to be
headed in different directions
with their redistricting efforts.
Both boards have stated they
will not include prisoners in their
counts. but their redistricting
maps do not match. Gulf commis-
.sioners have begun advertising
Scenario #17AA in this week's
edition of The Star. Scenario
#17AA.will be the county's redis-
tricting lines once the advertising
is completed and a federal judge
reviews the changes for compli-
ance with guidelines to the 1986
single member/minority district
consent decree Gulf is under.
On the other hand, the Gulf
County School Board agreed to a
map, Tuesday morning during its
regular meeting, that was differ-
ent than Scenario #1i7AA adopted
by the county commission board.
Chairman Dr. Mary Pridgeon said
after Tuesday morning's meeting
that the school board members
were open to talk with commis-
sioners about, the lines in an
effort to find like ground.
Commission Chairman
Nathan Peters, Jr. asked the
county board during its regular
meeting Tuesday evening if it
would be willing to hold a work-
_hop with the school board to see
if the two groups could work out
like boundaries.
Commissioner Carl Fox
voiced his opinion to the idea,
stating, "Last time (previous
workshop) we did all the talking
and they tried to hang us."
Commissioner Traylor said he
would not support the meeting
because neither board was
including prisoners. He added
Florida's Attorney General has
said the county should include
inmate counts. "It's not a matter
of like or dislike-it's the law," he
said.
Peters passed the chair and
made a motion for the board to
join in the meeting. It died for a
lack of a second.
The school board's proposal
leaves Districts 1 and 2 as they
are. It makes a slight alteration in
District 3 to include a new area of
the City of Port St. Joe, along
Highway 98 south. District 4 will
remain as majority district, but a

Some questions have been.
raised in recent board meetings
about the proposed Gulf Coast

construction in portions of Gulf


that time. It has been tagged "the
north/south corridor," "Highway

and spur" 'in reports that have
appeared in The Star over just the

In fact, several articles have

County.
Plans for the roadway have
been developed over the past few
years through Opportunity
Florida, but no one seemed to be
familiar with the Gulf Coast
Parkway.
Richard Williams, director of
Opportunity Florida, representing
an eight county area which
includes Gulf, was present at the
board's meeting
"Job creation is our job," he
stated.
Reviewing a quick history of
the Gulf Coast Parkway, he
explained that development of the
deep water port has been identi-
fied as a primary target area. In
order for that to come to fruition,
or for other industry to locate in.
the area, there has to be better
road transportation, he contin-
ued.
This roadway is a culmination
of ideas gathered from meetings
with the county and the Gulf
County Economic Development
Committee since 1998. One of the
areas of confusion is the change
of names for the project during

lion funded for the study.
The biggest portion of the
confusion seems to stem from the
change of name that the board
was not familiar with-Gulf Coast
Parkway-and the fact that a
cover letter showed copies were
sent .to the St. Joe Company and
the board had evidently not been
sent one.
Williams apologized to the
board for the oversight in not
making sure they had copies of
the final study area. He did
explain that he was new in the
position and was not sure what
exactly had taken place. He
advised them that Gulf had repre-
sentation on Opportunity
Florida's board and the county
had been included in the process.
The route proposed in the
study guidelines runs from
Highway 231, crossing Highway
22 west of Wewahitchka (just
inside Gulf County), then ends
intersecting Highway 98 west of
Highland View.
Williams stressed that this

The historical society plans to
restore the unprotected light-
house keeper's quarters at the
site before it is damaged much
worse. by exposure to the ele-
ments. One of the keeper's quar-
ters was restored by the Air Force
and through grants, and the other
was moved from the edge of the
Gulf to its present inland home-
next to the lighthouse.
There are still some problems
with the unit restored by the Air
Force. Much of the inside work
appears to be swelling from
humidity and has buckled on the
walls.
Historical society members
hope that the structures can be
set up as ;a museum and local
attraction. An educational and
historical exhibit could be fea-
tured, along with tours of the
lighthouse.
Relighting the lighthouse is
also a priority. The Cape San Blas
lighthouse and light has a storied
history and, once refurbished,
could be a must see visit for visi-
tors to the area, as well as points
of interest for local folks.
The plan for lease should be
submitted within six months,
according to the official letter of
notification, but additional time
can be granted if needed. In the
Air Force's requirements, it focus-
es on the lessee having the finan-
cial ability to rehabilitate, tare for,
and maintain the structures.

Greetings From Tahiti


WindMark Beach

There's a new wind blowing in Gulf County, and its name is
WindMark Beach. Surely everyone has heard by now that not
only has the new subdivision started marketing, but its sales
took off like a sea gull in a hurricane.
It's absolutely incredible that within just one month of the
introduction of the first 20 WindMark Beach lots for sale, they
are sold. I guess this is at least some indication of exactly how
much in demand and how marketable this little piece of par-
adise really is.
The 80-acre subdivision is the largest St. Joe Company
development to-date in Gulf County and will have a tremendous
economic impact on the area. Some of those impacts will be very
visible and others will not be quite so obvious.
Of course, the most visible change has already begun to
occur. The landscape is being transformed at this writing as
infrastructure is being constructed to gain access to the 110 lots
that are being marketed. Underground power, gas, and cable
will be installed so as not to compromise the landscape of the
large sparsely located lots being sold. These lots will range In
size from about a quarter of an acre to over half an acre.
The cost of those lots has raised eyebrows of many a local
resident-starting at a price of 890,000 for inland conservation
lots, to $415,000 for beachfront locations.
How many times have we heard those pioneer residents say.
"Well, I remember when I could have bought all the beachfront
property I wanted for almost nothing."
I get so mad at my daddy every time he says that .... "Well
why didn't you do itthen!!!!!" I exclaim.
Daddy was equally as quick to respond. "Almost nothing was
all I had, along with six hungry children, a wife, and a dog."
I guess when you put things into perspective, how much
something costs at any point and time is directly proportional to
how much a person might have to spend at that time and
moment in question.
It's going to be very interesting to watch WindMark develop.
and as it does the next impact will be very visible in a different
sort of way. Tax revenues for the taxing authorities will be a
gigantic boost for all of the county. Estimates place property tax
income alone at over $1.2 million. This figure is approximately
10% of Gulfs current tax base-all of which will be generated
from one little 80-acre parcel of land.
One of the things Daddy told me about that beachfront prop-
erty was, "Who would have wanted all that ol' sand anyway?"
We're fortunate that the St. Joe Company's philosophy of
development maintains so many of the good qualities of our
county. We are also fortunate that it is very unlikely we'll see the
hodge-podge of buildings along the beachfront that some com-
munities have had. It does seem that the ol' sand has turned to
gold-hopefully we'll continue to see it shaped into a necklace of
which to be proud.


What's A "Gerrymander"?
Someone who responded to the recent survey conducted by The
Star concerning redistricting, counting of prison inmates, and at-
large voting sent me this tracing of the origin of the word gerrmnan-
der.. I found it interesting and thought you might also.

To divide land into voting units that will benefit one group, party.
or constituency is to gerrymander. This word for manipulating the elec-
toral boundaries in order to gain an unfair advantage was first coined
in 1812: .
Gerrymander is a combination of the last name of Governor
Elbridge Gerry and salamander. Gerry decided in 1812 to rearrange
the congressional districts in Massachusetts to boost the fortunes of
his Democratic party. An editonal artist for a Boston paper drew a car-
icature that turned the new map of Essex County into a lizard-like
amphibian which was dubbed a gerrymander.


Well, I'm not actually in Tahiti
... yet! But this deal is so sure fire
I'm going to have the money for the
trip any day now. I can't wait till
the cash starts rolling in!
It's inconceivable that some-


thing of this magnitude didn't
come to light sooner. And I didn't
even think of it! All these years-
and it never crossed my mind. I
guess I was just too close to the
situation. The fIrest hid the trees .

My oldest son graduated from
his last school this past week.
We're pretty sure it's his last one
because I don't think there's any
grades left he hasn't passed. When
I got out of college I went to work.
Silly me, I didn't know about post-


graduate studies. Or masters pro-
grams. Or doctoral thesis .
How much ciphering does a
man need'?
[ know one or two people now
that are educated beyond their
intelligence.
Besides, I tried to warn both of
my boys not to get caught up in
that college knowledge stuff-I
have been out of school for over
thirty years now-and I haven't
used up all- I learned yet!
But here's the silver lining.


And it came courtesy of my older
brother. He has been watching out
and taking care of me all of my life.
I reckon that's just what they're
put in this world to do. We're sit-
ting around the table rerruniscing
about school. professors, cafeteria
food, and parking perrruts when
my super intelligent, God-sent
brother casually remarks, "Josh,
you know your dad is.the happiest
guy on earth right now."
"Why is that Uncle Leon?"
"Because you are now going to
start sending him back all' that
.money he has spent on your col-
lege education lo these many
y ear s!" : ,
Hello!!! Bingo!!! Bells were
sounding off, lights began to flash
in my little pea-sized noggin'!!! -
Money Back!
It just rolls off your tongue
I must admit that Josh looked
a little stunned, but he wasn't
about to disagree with his Uncle
Leon. Nor was I for that matter
Now, please understand. that
Cathy and I didn't fork out all that
cash for college with the idea .of
ever getting any of it back. We fig-
ured tuition fees, books, gas cards,

course, the ever present runningg

were supposed to do. Although. I

his trips downtown to 'the
Fountain Blue Oh The River.. He
and his girlfriend were enjoying
steak tar-tar and grilled salmoin-
while I'm at home "feasting" on
fried baloney and stewed tomato
sandwiches.
We lived through it! Somehow!
And also be assured that we
are super proud of what Josh has
accomplished. He has worked.hard
and is very deserving .. -
But if there's a chance of turn-
ing around the direction of the
cash flow who am [ to stand in
the way!
Leon was companng for Josh
the college expenence with the
' money back guarantee at Sears .-.

can do that to you! We have been
writing out those checks for seven
years!

of this deal! And maybe a shirt ,.r
two. And some running shod to
replace the pair I bought in 199'.
And a color television set. I rgl t
even pave the driveway.. ..

Yes, it did! Much!


Barry snuffed out the fires
and partially relieved the drought

relief from a scarcity of precipita-

So, Barry wasn't all bad, was
he? Mostly he brought just what
we were needing, without the high,
destructive winds.
He DID cause a short power
outage and left us in the dark for a
couple of hours, and caused a
heavy downpour right at church-
time Sunday. It kept a number of
folks home from church and can-
celled some church services.

day afternoon, when all of a sud-
den, we heard a clatter, clatter,
down the chimney, during some of
the heaviest rainfall outside.
Could it be Santa Claus com-
ing on the third of August? Did the
rain mix up his timing that much?
It was sort of out of the norm for
us to be getting such heavy rains,
after going so long a period with-
out, that anything was possible.
Anyhow, we later found out it
wasn't Santa Claus. A close
inspection revealed that a bird had
evidently got up under the cap on
top of the chimney to get in out of
the rain, lost his balance and
came tumbling down, inside the

Since I am no longer quick
enough to chase down a bird pn
the wing, and neither is my wife, it
seemed the prudent thing to do:to'
call number one son, Ray, to come
get the bird out of the house and
into the elements, again.
So, it was to the phone we
went and gave Ray a call.

WHEN RAY CAME over, he
was equipped with a pair of gloves,
a flashlight, and a crab net.
Ray was all decked out to 'go
bird hunting.
But, wait, he didn't have his

shotgun!
He opened up the front of the
stove and that bird came flying
out! "It" for want of a better
descriptive adjective, since I didn't
know its gender ... seemed happy
to escape its cast iron prison. It
flew 'into the dining room and
made a circle or two, before set-
tling down in a corner behind, the
tea cart which has never held a pot
of tea in its 20 years of setting in,
that one spot.
But, the bird didn't know that!
It made itself right at home as if we
were going to serve it something to
eat at any moment.
It must have been a mature
bird which remembered the days I
spent feeding peanuts to squirrels
before a previous storm blew down
my feeder.
Anyhow, Ray finally caught
the bird after knocking over a dish
or two, around the tea cart, and
put it back outside where it no
doubt hunted another spot out of
the rain.

THAT WASN'T -A heartless
act on our part. The bird had plen-
ty of places it could go.
There were the eaves of the
house, which overhang about two
feet and give plenty of shelter.
There was my outside cook
shed which is a roof over my
grilling spot adjacent to my back-
yard woodworking shop. All the
squirrels use this spot to get in out
of the rain. Or, it could join the cat
and get under the carport.
There's any number of dry
places that bird could hold up out
of the rain.
I don't know where it went. It
just took off, free as a bird, when
Ray took it out of his crab net and
opened the back door and gave it a
little boost toward the outside.
Needless to say, it didn't make
the mistake of falling down the
chimney into the house, again!
I don't know what kind of bird
it was. It was sort of black in color,

At least, we won't need to hiave
the chimney cleaned out this yepr.
It should be wide open, now that
this live brush has tumbled d6wn

USUALLY, WE CALL a few rel-
atives and friends when the clil-
ney sweep is coming to townr to
clean out our chimney. The cliim-
ney sweep usually keeps us enter-
tained, too, while he brushes arid
cleans. The bird also kept us occu-
pied for about an hour, after' his
ignominious entrance.
I don't blame "it" for wanting
to come inside out of that torrer-
tial rain Sunday afternoon. I, did
the same thing, except, I chnhe
inside through the door and left
the chimney route untraveled for
the bird. It wasn't a fit day outside

ing company headquartered in
Port St. Joe, together with its sub-
sidiary Citizens Federal Savings
Bank of Port St. Joe with offices in
Port St. Joe, Apalachicola and
Mexico Beach has been entered
into.
As of June 30th, CF
-Bancshares, Inc., on a consolidat-
ed' basis, had total assets of-
approximately $105 million,
deposits of approximately $80
million, and stockholders' equity
of' approximately $8.1 million.
Pursuant to the letter of
,intent, the shareholders of CF
Bancshares, Inc. can elect to
,receive cash or stock of The Banc
Corporation for their shares of CF
Bancshares, Inc. The transaction
W with CF Bancshares is subject to
the execution of a definitive agree-
ment and regulatory and CF
,Bancshares' shareholder ap-
proval.
The Banc Corporation,
through its subsidiary, The Bank,
'already has seven offices in the
panhandle of Florida with three
more branches scheduled to open
iri the fall. The Bank's Emerald
"Coast Bank division currently, has
offices in Panama City Beach,
-Destin, Seagrove and Bay Point.
The' new offices will be in Panama
City, Destin and Santa Rosa
Beach.
,The Bank'sI C&L Division has
offices in Bristol, Blountstown
and Altha. The Banc Corporation
will. have, over $400 million in
.assets throughout the panhandle
of Florida when the transaction is
complete.
James A. Taylor, Chairman of
the Board and Chief Executive
;Officer of The Banc Corporation,
said, "The panhandle is one of the
fastest growing areas in the state
of Florida and certainly the most
.exciting. The addition of the Port
St. Joe, Apalachicola and Mexico
Beach offices to our existing
Florida franchise would give us a


dominant presence in these areas
and allow us to tap into a market
that provides tremendous growth
potential as well as a solid earn-
ings base. We are also very
pleased that Greg Johnson and
the entire board of directors have
agreed to reniain with the organi-
zation after the merger."
Greg Johnson, President and
Chief Executive Officer of Citizens
Federal Savings Bank, stated,
"The Banc Corporation has made
a commitment to the Florida mar-
ket. The Banc Corporation and its
management have a great deal of.
experience in operating com-
munity banks, and our customers
and employees will see very little
change". We are also pleased that
The Banc Corporation shares our
expansion philosophy as we begin
construction of our newest office
in Carrabelle. That branch should
open during the first quarter of
2002."
Johnson said, in an interview
Monday, several area banks are
owned by The Banc Corporation
and operating under the name of
Emerald Coast Bank and C & L
Bank. These banks are located in
Blountstown, Bristol, Altha,
Panama City Beach, Destin, and
Seagrove.
He said the current bank
board has voted to carry this rec-
ommendation to shareholders,
who must vote in favor of the
acquisition before it will become
official.
Current chairman of the
Board of Directors Dave May said
the directors agreed unanimously
that this was the direction stock-
holders should consider, "... basi-
cally it was such a good deal that
we felt we had to take it to our
shareholders."
He said the board was most
impressed with The Banc's transi-
tioning philosophy which should
have minimal, if any, impact on
employees and customers.
Johnson added that Citizens
Federal Bank has experienced
tremendous growth over the past
few. years. He anticipates that


trend. will continue and believes
the merger will help meet the
demands of that growth and cus-
tomers' needs.
Johnson also noted that the
bank's staff has been fully
apprised of-the acquisition and
feels they view it as a positive
move.
The merger is expected to
close during the fourth quarter of
2001. Upon completion of the
merger, The Banc Corporation will
have total assets of approximately
$1.3 billion and 34 banking

And my son is going to start send-
ing me money! I'm double dipping!
I've heard about stuff like that all
my life-I've just never been the
guy on the receiving end-ever!
I'm going to ask that he sends
the checks on the first and the fif-,
teenth.
I told you this was almost too
good to be true! I'm thinking about
quitting my job and buying a
Harley-Davidson. I could tour the
country Easy Rider style. I could
afford tickets to the race at
Talladega. I could buy a summer
home in the mountains. I could get
my Mother that new pair of IRed
Wings she's been eyeing for years;
I might buy one of those Hawaiian
flowerdy shirts-:in Honolulu! The
possibilities are endless.
You should be so lucky!
Hey, there's more! I have
another son in college. He gradu-
ates in a year and a half. I'm going
to be quadruple dipping! The
money is going to be coming in by
the wheelbarrow loads ....
Our only mistake here was not
having about ten more children!
Now, we haven't actually
received the first check yet. But
remember, he just graduated last
;riday night. F reckon it willtake a
,,week or so to get, everything orga-
nized. I'm setting a chair .out by
the mailbox. And giving Willie my
two weeks notice. I've already got a
travel agent lined up. I've been
looking at brochures from Ireland,
Switzerland, West Africa' and

Representative Bev Kilmer who
relentlessly worked for finding,
the state legislature founded
$256,000 ., fol
construction.Another $106,000"
. has been set aside for paving and
parking.
The only requirement for the
funding is that local efforts must
raise equal money or in-kind con-
tributions for the 50/50 matching
grant.
The new 4,000 square foot
building has been designed by
Charles Arthur Gaskin, and
incorporates a small meeting
room in the design.' Community
members are already asking for
the meeting room to be enlarged,
and Gaskin estimates it will take
an additional $10,000 $15,000
for the chafige. The building will
be,similar to the one shown, but
the exterior design will be
changed to more closely comple-
ment the aesthetics of the historic
courthouse. The library will be
built on land adjacent to the old
courthouse.
The $50,000 donation brings
the library committee within
$59,000 of the necessary match-
ing funds to secure release of the
state grant of $256,000. When the
Library Building Committee start-
ed fund-raising efforts, a number
of programs were instituted.
Donors who make significant con-
tributions of $100 or more will
have portions of the library
narhed after them. Whitehead's
$50,000 contribution will result
in' the library being named the'
Charles Whitehead Memorial
Library of Wewahitchka.
Libraries offer everyone in the
community assess to a,multitude
of books, arid other research
resources. They are an invaluable'
asset, but are historically under-
funded. It is through the efforts of
local citizens through their vari-
ous fund-raising activities, that
libraries across the country are
built and maintained.
Anyone with questions or that
wishes to make a contribution to
this worthy cause may contact
Alan McNair or his wife Marlene
at 639-2338.
This Saturday the Library
committee is hbsting.the Catfish
Festival in conjunction with the
Catfish Fishing TQuinament in

ing the Festival will benefit the

out that TDC would maintain the
new bike path on the Cape once it
is built. She hopes to see the path
extended to all the park areas
along our coast. Pickett also
brought the club up to date on the
State Park management issues.
She indicated that the TDC hopes
State Park management would be
a more active participant in and*
partner with Gulf County as the
area grows.

Veterans and
VA Healthcare?
According to Bo Williams,
Gulf County's Veterans' Service
Officer, many local veterans have
been requesting information on
obtaining VA Health Care. Most
questions focus on how to obtain
prescription drugs.
Williams indicated that any
honorably discharged veteran is
eligible to enroll in the VA Health
Care System, however enrollment
does not include family members.
This process is accomplished by
completing an enrollment form
(VA form 10-10 EZ) and attaching
a copy of the discharge certificate
DD 214.
Veterans have the option of
requesting enrollment and
obtaining an appointment at
either or both the VA Outpatient
Clinics in Panama City or
Tallahassee. Currently, -first time
appointments at Tallahassee are
not available within 100 days of
receipt of application for enroll-
ment. Of course, Williams indicat-
ed these time-frames are subject
to change without notice.
Veterans with service con-
nected disabilities are not
required to pay for their prescrip-
tions provided it is for their dis-
ability condition; however, if a
condition requiring medication is
not service connected the veteran
will be required to pay a co-pay-
ment of $7 (recently increased
from $2) for each 30 day supply of
the medications.
Co-payment for. each sched-
uled appointment is as follows:
*Service connected condition
rated by the VA at 0 to 40 percent:
no payment required for
that/those conditions only.
*Service connected condition
rated by the VA at 50 percent or
greater: no payment for any con-
dition.
eNon-service connected con-
ditions (family gross annual
income assets above the Veterans
Health Administration Means
Test Threshold): $58.80 per visit
(normally billed quarterly by the
VA). If the family income is below
the threshold a co-payment for
the appointment is not required.
If the veteran has insurance,
such as BC/BS, VA will bill the
company for the co-payment.
Currently, federal law does not
allow VA to bill Medicare or their
supplements for the co-payment.
Veterans are encouraged to
contact Williams for enrollment
and/or questions at 850-229-
612s.'

Prudential Real Estate Named Libia

Taylor Second Highest Realtor In State


Prudential Real Estate
Affiliates recognizes Libia Taylor,
Prudential Resort Realty, St.
Joseph Bay office, as the second
highest realtor of closed residen-
tial transactions in the state of
Florida for the second quarter of
2001. Libia was competing with
over 2,400 Prudential agents in
87 offices.
"All transactions are impor-
tant and require a high level of
service to bring satisfactory
results to buyers and sellers. My
goal is to conduct every transac-
tion with utmost efficiency,
demonstrating a professional
manner to all parties involved."
Summarized, this is Libia's phi-
losophy in her daily approach to
her business.
After receiving her degree in
hotel management from the
University of Nevada Las Vegas,
Libia assumed a management role
with the Hilton Hotel chain where
she worked for five years in some
of Hilton's crown jewels such as
the Beverly Hilton, Fountaineblue
Hilton, and Las Vegas Hilton
enabling her to hone her service
industry and customer satisfac-
tion skills.
After she and her husband


Rick Taylor relocated to Port St.
Joe in 1995, she accepted a posi-
tion as sales assistant and office
manager for a local realty firm. In
1997, Libia decided to pursue real
estate sales as a full time career.
Since that time she has distin-
guished herself as a highly pro-
ductive realtor, and has acquired
her broker's license. Libia has
worked exclusively in the Cape
San Blas and Indian Pass market
for the last six years. She espe-
cially enjoys working with first
time buyers and investors. Her
customers appreciate the ability
to follow through on all details,
professional service, and knowl-
edge of the market. Libia takes
pride in the fact that over 70 per-
cent of her business for 2001 is
generated through "referred and
repeat clients" who, after using
her services once before, trust her
to continue .doing business with
her and sending their friends and
family.
She defers the credit of win-
ning this, award to all the great
agents in our area who worked
with her toward a successful
transaction, the local service
providers, Prudential Resort
Realty's great systems to empow-


er the agents to conduct business
in a professional fashion, and
always to her husband's support
and business feedback.

Tips for Home, Carpet and Rug Care That Will Reduce Allergens


Today, carrying a rug outside
to beat over the backyard clothes-
line seems like an old-fashioned
cleaning routine. The idea of get-
ting dirt that people, pets and the
environment bring into your
home and onto your carpet back
outdoors is, however, a great idea.
The Carpet and Rug Institute
(CRI) has several easy cleaning
recommendations that will also
help reduce indoor allergens.
The sunny weather forecast
makes it the perfect time to think
about cleaning tips to keep indoor


carpet maintenance under control
-without taking up a lot of free
time when everyone wants to be
outside.
Allergy Alert
Allergy sufferers who feel dis-
comfort in their noses, throats
and eyes will benefit from a little
"elbow grease." That's because
keeping the home clean can mini-
mize the impact that the worst
allergy-inducing culprits-rag-
weed, dust and mold-will have
on the body.
Pediatric allergists routinely


advise parents to really make an
effort to keep homes clean during
peak allergy seasons. Reducing
household allergen triggers,
which include mildew and animal
dander, can be an effective strate-
gy for tempering allergy symp-
toms.
"It may be a surprise that a
clean home can have such an
impact on how you feel," said
Brenda Murry of the CRI.
"Regularly cleaning your home
contributes to better indoor air
quality-reducing the symptoms
your family may experience due to
allergies or a high pollen count.
Even though everyone is anxious
to get outdoors, now is not the
time to fall behind on household
chores."
Contact an allergist, immu-
nologist or CRI for a copy of the
"Clearing the Air In Your Home"
brochure.
Vacuum
CRI recommends vacuuming
floor coverings in the whole house
at least once a week and high-
traffic areas should be vacuumed
twice weekly. If pets live indoors
with the family, some areas may
need vacuuming daily,
Move furniture to clean all
carpeted areas, especially under
tables, and seating. Use only vac-
uums with strong suction,
adjustable brushes and high-effi-
ciency filtration. CRI also advises
changing a vacuum's disposable
bag regularly, or cleaning the per-
manent one, and checking for
worn belts.
In order to identify vacuums
that perform to the industry's
high standards, CRI has initiated
a new partnership program with
vacuum cleaner manufacturers.
The CRI Vacuum Cleaner Indoor
Air Quality (IAQ) Testing Program
recognizes vacuum cleaners as
models that have efficient soil
removal, keep dust in the
machine and out of the air, and
keep carpet looking good.
Consumers should look for
the bright green IAQ program
labels on the vacuum cleaner
packaging, merchandise displays,
or hang tags when selecting a
model.
Busting the Dust
Dust-mites are invisible
insects that may be causing aller-
gic reactions. They hide every-
where indoors, but particularly in
mattresses and pillows. To control
the rrmutes, look first in bedrooms.
Wash sheets, pillowcases,
and stuffed animals in hot
water-of at least 130 degrees
' _-once a week. Regularly wash
comforters, dust ruffles, and
other bedding. Mattresses and
pillows encased in "allergen-con-
trol" covers are helpful.
Other rooms collect dust, too
-living rooms, family rooms, din-
ing rooms and home offices.
Clean them at least once a week
by vacuuming all floors and
upholstered furniture and dust-
ing shelving, ceiling fans, light fix-
tures and storage units. To mini-
mize dust. store books and knick-
knacks in closed cabinets-doing


so leaves fewer places for dust to
settle and makes cleaning easier.
Minimizing Moisture
Experts recommend main-
taining relative humidity level at
or below 55 percent indoors. This
can be achieved by running the
air conditioning when it's hot (or
heating when it's cold). A dehu-
midifier is a good idea for moist
spaces, such as basements. Using
air conditioning, heating equip-
ment, and a dehumidifier mini-
mizes mold and mildew and dis-
courages dust mite populations
because they don't survive in rel-
ative humidity under 55 percent.
Warm, moist kitchens and
bathrooms provide a breeding
ground for mold and mildew, so
clean them often with disinfectant
cleaners. Launder all towels and
rugs weekly in hot water. Repair
leaky faucets to discourage mold
and mildew growth. In addition.
food in the kitchen provides fod-
der for insects to flourish, so
clean off all grease and food, seal
cracks around cabinets, and store
food in closed containers.
Window-Drop
Cool, breezy days are quite
inviting. While the temptation
may be to open the windows and

let the fresh air in, consider keep-
ing them closed. Windy, cooler
days are often the most likely to
have the highest pollen count. It's
also important to clean win-
dowsills and window frames with
a damp cloth weekly. All window
treatments-blinds, shutters and
curtains-should be cleaned on a
regular basis.
By following these tips, you'll
feel a lot more comfortable hiber-
nating indoors once cool weather
returns.

"Scout Night" Being


Planned by Pack 47


What iS scouting? The pur-
pose of Scouting is to provide for
boys and young adults an effec-
tive educational program
designed to build desirable quali-
ties of character; to train in the .
responsibilities of participating
citizenship: and to develop per-
sonal fitness. It is a year-round
family program designed for boys
who are in first grade through
fifth grade (or 7, 8, 9, and 10
years of age). Parents, leaders,
and organizations work together
to achieve this goal. Locally, the
Rotary Club is the sponsoring
organization for Scout Pack 47 in
Gulf County.
On Tuesday, August 24th,
Pack 47 of Gulf County will hold a
"Scout Night" to encourage all
local boys to join. They will learn
how they can become Tiger Cubs,
Cub Scouts and Webelos. Parents
are encouraged to attend and find'
out what they and their sons have
been missing out on. Scouting is,
for families. It provides opportuni-
ties for families to work and play
together, to have fun together,
and to get to know each other a
little better.
Boys like to belong to a group.'
They have fun in den meetings,
during indoor and outdoor activi-
ties. Scouting encourages good
sportsmanship and pride in grow-
ing strong in mind and body. Why
do boys join scouting?' To have
fun, to be with their friends, and
to have a good time.

Perhaps you've heard of the
"great masquerader" in dental dis-
ease known as temperomandibular
joint (TMJ) syndrome. It has
earned this epithet because of the
great variety of symptoms associ-
ated with it. This syndrome can not
only cause pain in your jaw when
you open or close your mouth, but
also in other areas. Headaches,
earaches, ringing, buzzing, and
scraping noises in the ears may be
caused by TMJ syndrome, for
example. It can also cause pain in

ment of each joint houses the head
of the lower jawbone. The upper

caused by bad bite or misaligned *>

Horses Provide Wonderful Therapy for Burn Children


Wednesday. August 1st, the
Tallahassee Fire Department held
its annual Burn Camp 2001. The
camp took place at Rish Park on
Cape San Bias. The park is an
impressive facility catering to the
special needs of handicapped
vacationers. The club house, pool,
gazebo. housing units, and of
course, the beach is fully wheel-
chair accessible.
The children, ranging in age
from 10 to 17. enjoyed four nights
and five days of fun and fellow-
ship. They were extremely outgo-
ing, full of spirit and had a great
time. Enthusiasm and anticipa-
tion filled the air as the horses of
Broke-A-Toe Outdoor Guides,
Bailey, Cool Whip, Jake. Stormy,
Sonny and Joe, made their way
down to the beach for the chil-
dren's tour.
The eighteen campers were so


excited to meet the six quarter
horses, and everyone got a chance
to ride. Karmen Wilson, owner of
Broke-A-Toe, said, "Though the
horses were on a stretch of beach
they had never seen before, they
were perfect ladies and gentle-
men, and truly seemed to realize
they were carrying precious
cargo."
Halfway through the evening
one of the horses somehow
injured a leg and began to
painfully limp. Almost instantly,
many of the children hurried over
to him with a sincere concern.
These kids who had suffered
much injury, along with the gru-
ehng path to recovery, were not
feeling sorry for themselves or
looking for their own attention
and sympathy. They know first-
hand what it feels like to hurt.
They understand and empathize


when someone else is In pain,
even If it's an animal they've never
met before.
Wilson commented. "I almost
started to cry when the smallest
little girl hugged my horse's neck,
closed her eyes. and said, "You're
going to be alright. Cool Whip, I
just know it!'"
"The Tallahassee Fire
Department's Burn 2001 Camp
has as its motto-Heal Them from
the Inside. Those kids are going to'
be just fine. I just know it," said
Wilson.
Broke-A-Toe would like to
thank Kyber Hinz and Nicky
Forler for their help with the hors-
es, and nine year old Chelsey
Walker, who juggled well her two
important duties as official water
girl and director of apple slices.

Good-Bye John
Jesus said He'd go and prepare
us a place.
He's taking them fast lately to
show them His grace.
John Odom is another that was
taken of late.
St. Peter has hardly had time
to close the gate.
John is another who loved his
family well.
He loved and served Jesus, who
saved his soul from hell.
You'd have to get up early to
keep up with his pace.
I guess God wanted him in
heaven, to serve Him face to

John tells the folks from St.

I'll say goodLbye and see y'all in

Good-Bye Grady
Grady Player was a friend to:
everyone around.
Grady always had a smile,
don't believe he knew how to
frown.
A small man and never loud, if
Syou went to Long Avenue
Baptist Church you'd find him
in the crowd.
Grady was a family man he
loved them one and all.
God knew the shape his body
was in, is why he made the
call.
I know for sure he's going to be
missed, but-God for His chil-
dren does what is best.
Grady. put: his trust in Jesus,
I've put mine in Him too.
I'll see Grady again in Heaven,
tell me, friend, will you?
Good-bye, Grady, I'm proud to
have been your friend.
I'm also glad you've got a new
body and you'll never hurt
again.

By: Andy Wilkinson
Financial Advisor
The dollar:' it's up, down,
steady, weak or strong compared
with foreign currencies. Simple.
easy terms, but what do they real-
ly mean where your investments
are' concerned?
To begin with, the use of these
terms indicates just how "small"
the world has become, especially
in economic terms. Twenty years
ago, our national economy essen-
tially performed as though it were
relatively untouched by economic
developments throughout the
world. Today, the performance of
the U.S. economy is directly
linked to those of other nations.
as well as to developments in their
governments and financial mar-
k e ts.. :, .
While there are many factors
influencing whether the dollar is
"strong' or "weak' versus the
Japanese yen. British pound.
German mark or French franc.
three are key:
the strength of our economy
versus those of other nations
the political stability of the,
respective .governments s
't' ; comparativee 'interest-rate
levels here and abroad
For example, during the early
and mid-80s, our economy was
much stronger than those of our
trading partners, while interest
rates soared as a result of an


influx of foreign purchases of'
American products and invest-
ments in U.S. assets. As a result,
our currency was often called the
"super dollar" during this period.
,.However, the dollar began to
weaken steadily in mid-1985 as
the sale of "costly' American prod-
ucts dwindled abroad, while the
demand for relatively inexpensive
imported items rose. The stock
market crash of 1987 forced the-
dollar 'to sink even further, caus-
ing the Federal Reserve Bank, the
nation's central bank, to reduce
interest rates arid provide liquidi-
ty.
After a period of relative sta-
bility, volatility is now .rampant
and it's not uncommon to see the
dollar move up or down against
foreign currencies as much as ten
percent in a single week. In fact.
many sophisticated investors with
a high-risk tolerance have profited
by trading on the fast-changing
foreign currency market but,
experts agree. this is not the place
for beginners.
What does this all mean to
the average investor? While
short-term fluctuations have litUe
or no impact on most individual
portfolios, a dollar which is more
stable or rising over a longer peri-
od of time will most likely attract
foreign investors to the stock mar-
ket: this. in turn. expands the
amount of money available to buy

Research shows that when
parents become involved in their
children's schoolwork, the chil-
dren do better in school. One way
you can get involved is by helping
your child with homework. It will
benefit both your child's academ-
ic progress and self-esteem.
There are things that parents
can do to help with homework.
Keep in touch with the teacher' or
teachers to be fully aware of the
quantity and the quality of' the
homework turned in..
Set a schedule, including,
both a beginning and an ending
time. Most kids need some time to
unwind after school before they
tackle their homework. Doing it
too close to bedtime may make it'
difficult due to fatigue. Allow
bathroom, drink, and/or snack
breaks, but insist on completion:
of tasks. Friday are usually the
best day for homework that must:
be completed over the weekend.
Assignments are still fresh in'
mind and last minute panic rush-
es are avoided.
Encourage your child to:
divide the homework assignment;
into' what can I do myself' aind
"what I need help with." You'
should help only with the part of
the homework your child cannot
do independently, such as using
flashcards. practicing spelling
tests. and clariyirg assignments..
This builds responsibility apd
independue-.nm your child. Hold
off on watching TV and other fun
activities until homework is com-
pleted.
Provide a home study center
for your child with adequate light
and few distractions. If your child
concentrates better with "white
noise" (music). provide that help.
Also, a dictionary, paper, pens,
etc., should be readily available.
Use direct praise for doing the
homework and even more for
accomplishmentn. "You've spelled

NJROTC News Column
The Port St. Joe High School
Naval Junior Reserve Officer
Training Corps had a very busy
first week of school. The corps of
cadets had to plan for two week-
end' activities, as well as welcome
approximately twenty new cadets
to the unit. Uniforms had to be
issued,, personnel records had 'to
be updated, and new cadets had
to be "acclimated" to the NJROTC
way of conducting classes.
This past weekend the unit
was very involved with assisting
with the Gulf County
Veterans/Seniors Health Fair
which was held at the Senior
Citizens Building. The cadet corps
was also at the Duren's Piggly
Wiggly where they were allowed to
dispense Pepsi, 7 Up and water
for a donation to our unit. The
good citizens were very friendly
and it was a lot of fun to talk to
the friendly folks of our beautiful
county.
We want to thank George
Duren for securing a Pepsi-Cola
booth and allowing our cadets to
raise money for the unit activities.
Duren is always there to help the
youth of our area and we are for-
tunate to have such a supporter
of the young people of our county.
Thank you Duren and Piggly
Wiggly. We would also like to
thank The Star for making the
signs we used to advertise our
fundraising activity.
This Thursday night, the
NJROTC Parent Booster Club will
hold their first meeting of the new
school year. The parents will meet
in the PSJHS NJROTC classroom
at 7:00 p.m. All parents and sup-
porters are urged to attend. We
are planning lots of activities for
the new school year and need
your support. We also want every-
one to meet our new Senior Naval
Science Instructor, Lieutenant
Jim Reed.
Until next week, Semper Fi!

Afierican history in kindergarten
and early exhibit a love for our
country. Science, art, music, and
physical training also begin in
these early years. The curriculum
integrates phonics, spelling, and
reading beginning in pre-kinder-
garten, and the students begin
"sounding-out" words 6as early as
age four. Kindergarten classes are
offered in a half or full day pro-
gram, and tuition is kept at a
minimum. An extended day pro-
4 gram until 5:15 p.m. 'is available
for those who need it.
Again, we ask our readers to
pray with us for a good beginning
to a successful year. We want to
help parents to "train up a child
in the way he should go, and
when he is old, he will not depart
from it."- Proverbs 22:6.

The 2001-2002 school year at,
WMS is off to a start and gaining
momentum. We have formed an
exemplary teaching team of ener-
getic, enthusiastic, and highly
competent individuals. We have
rounded out this team by4 adding
a new reading teacher, Miss Misty
Wood. Ms. Wood is a recent grad-
uate of Florida State University,
where she took extensive course-
work in the area of reading
instruction. We feel that an
emphasis upon reading does not
need to end in elementary school
and that the best way for our stu-
dents to continue to improve as
readers is to design a course soley
intended to improve reading per-
formance. We feel fortunate to
have Miss Wood with us.
In addition to forgoing a
strong curriculum, we are making
a concerted effort to build a mid-
dle school identity and foster a

-that's the best you've done this
semester!" Be available when your
child is doing homework, so that
you can answer a question if
there is confusion. If possible, it is
better for you to, be in, another
room, so you are easily accessible
and yet not a distraction. Look
over the homework when 'it is
,completed. Po not correct it
unless you have checked \\ith the
feacher. Seeing '-the, pattern of
errors is often; helpful to a
.teacher.
Study groups are often a good
strategy. Your child may benefit
'from studying with one or two
classmates. However, make sure
that they ,are using the time, to
study.

School Is Now In Session -

Drivers Should Be Cautious


* Gulf County students have
returned to school. It is a time of
great anticipation, but there will
also be a great deal of anxiety.
That anxiety will come from a par-
ent's concern- over the safety of
their children.
"Stnking a child With your
vehicle will stay on your mind for
the rest of your life, even if it was-
n't your fault," said Major Randy
Brown, Commander, Troop A,
Florida Highway Patrol. Defensive
driving is the key to safe driving.
If you are mentally prepared to
react to a potential hazard, your
chances of being involved in a,
crash are greatly diminished.
When a school bus displays a
stop signal to load or unload,
Florida law requires all drivers

standing FCAT students. They are

an opening assembly is to intro-
duce to the student body all of the
changes that are in place for a
new school year. The dress code,
code of conduct, and parking
changes were the highlights of
this presentation. .
SGA then took center stage
,and. offered an entertaining paro-
dy of selected members of the fac-
ulty and administration.
Everything was done in good taste
and the "victims' were as delight-
ed as anyone with the program.
To conclude the assembly, Dr
T was to have received a pie in the
face. However, raffle winner
Clarissa Allen turned down the,
offer and gave the opportunity tto,
the senior girls. They chose to
"pie" the Dr. T impersonator,
James Destifino, instead.'
Thanks, girls!
Students went to TAP after
the assembly -to receive schedules
and get reintroduced to a lot; of
the procedures, etc. With great
initial guidance from faculty and
staff, the rest of the day and week
went Wonderfully. As soon as we
,get all of the schedules worked.
out, we should be on Easy Street!
Parents are reminded to turn
in Free and Reduced lunch forms
as soon as possible. We benefit in
may ways when students take
advantage of this program. Not
only are our students healthier
hand.more ready to learn, but we
become eligible for more financial
opportunities.
Another round of sports
physical will be given ort Friday,
. August 17th at the WHS Health


stop. Traffic moving in the oppo-
site direction must also stop,
' unless the highway is divided
with an unpaved space at least
five feet, a raised median, or a
physical barrier. The monetary
fine for this violation of the law
varies from county to county, but
is over $100. "Drivers should
reduce the speed of their vehicle
when meeting or overtaking a
school bus and be prepared to
stop anytime," said Major Brown.
Violating the speed limit in a
school zone could result in
tragedy at worst and very stiff
monetary fines at least. The fines
begin around $79 and can very
quickly increase to over $500.
"The fines may seem awfully
tough, but our objective is to pro-
tect our most precious resource -
our children," concluded Brown.
