Rumors & Lies Not True!!


Sheriff McKeithen Victim of Untrue Gossip Running Through County


Just in case you were not
aware of it, Gulfs crime rate has
taken a significant downturn over
the past few years.
Gulf County Sheriff Frank
McKeithen 'and his deputies are
credited with being one of the pri-
mary reasons for this good news.
Not everybody is happy about this
news though. The sheriffs main
targets have been drug dealers.
During this timespan, he, his
family, and staff have been under
an ever increasing barrage of
attacks via rumors anrd lies about
them, their conduct, or their
actions.
"I can't prove where this
comes from, but I suspect it orig-
inates from a dissatisfied cus-


tomer," Sheriff McKeithen said
Tuesday. He was, of course,
alluding to one or more of the per-
sons who have been arrested dur-
ing his term as sheriff.
'They're going to have to come
up, with something 'a whole lot
better than a rumor to get me to
stop enforcing the law," he contin-
ued.
Here is a sample of a few of
the rumors/lies that have been
spread-kids busted for drugs;
sheriff flunks drug test; and (best
for last) sheriff beats wife and
spends the night in jail. These are
not!!! true.
"Anyone who knows me
knows upon hearing one of these
rumors that they are not true."


McKeithen said; as he discussed
the ever increasing frequency of


gossip attacks.
How widespread is this gos-

Tuesday evening.
S. City Attorney Billy, Joe Rish
told the board that a 20 year old
dream had become a reality with
the signing of the purchase docu-
ments. He stated, that 20 years
ago Mayor Frank Pate had spoken
about the need for the city to have
fresh water supplies. ,

The board has been negotiat-
ing with Smurfit-Stone Container
Company for two years in an
effort to purchase the 17-mile

Coastal Cleanup
On Saturday, September 15th
over 30,000 people will descend
on beaches all over Florida to help
tackle the problem of marine
debris during the 14th Annual
Florida Coastal Clean-up.
Each year this project, coordi-
nated by the Ocean Conservancy
(formerly the Center for Marine
Conservation) sees the number of
volunteers, miles covered, and
pounds of trash retrieved grow.
This amazing amount, of. effort
ensures that our beaches and
waterways are cleaner and safer
for people and wildlife and pro-
vides information that makes it
possible to solve some of these
debris problems at the source.
If you would like to be a part
of this effort in Gulf County,
please contact Paula Boone, Gulf
County Zone Captain at 850/647-'
5031, or Barbara Eells, Gulf and
East Bay Sea Turtle Patrol
Chairperson at 850/647-8238.


a price of 8700.000. All but
$168,700 of the purchase pnce
has been secured through grant
funds-S222,300 Rural Infra-'
structure Fund and $350.000
Northwest Florida Water
Management Distnrict.
Low interest Rural Com-
munity Development Revolving
Loan Program funds were also
secured to finance the remaining
$168,700 needed for the pur-
chase.
Mayor Frank Pate stated dur-
ing interviews, "One of the prima-
ry needs in any community seek-
ing business development arid
additional jobs is a good depend-
able fresh water source. This pur-
chase can satisfy the needs not
only for our 'city, but surrounding
areas for a long time to come."
Rish said the $168,700 would
be paid back though revenues
received through the sale of non-
potable water.
"All we have to do is start ped-
dling water," Rish said, just prior


'o apologizing to the mayor for
doubting him.
The city must make major
renovations to its fresh water
treatment plant or totally rebuild
the system in order to use the
water canal as a supply source for
potable water. The water must
meet all federal and state quality
guidelines in order to be used as a
source for drinking water.

Prior to the board's regular
meeting, members held the first of
two public tax hearings on pro-.
posed rmllage rates. Z
Port St. Joe was again hit
hard by a loss in taxable values
on this year's tax rolls. While the
county had a net increase of $118
million, Port St. Joe had a
decrease of S43.3 million mostly
as a result of a decrease in the
valuation of the Smurfit-Stone
paper mill site.
Last year's millage rate was
6.17 dollars per 1,000 dollars of
valuation: this year's 'proposed
rate is 6.67. Because of the loss of
taxable value, this increase in
rmllage is still considerably below
the rollback rate of 7.61 rrulls and
will equal an overall reduction of
approximately S200.000 in the
budget,.or 12.35%.
The final budget heanng will
be held prior to the board's next
meeting on September 18th.
In Other Business
*Agreed to begin advertising
for Phase I of the Centennial
Building renovation when the
final $300,000 historical grant
documentation is received. The
building's roof, electrical, and
heating and 'air conditioning are
the major items to be addressed
in Phase I.
*Florida Power Corporation
has agreed to proceed with light-
ing along First Street between
Highway 98 arid St. Joseph Bay.
The city has $45,900 in grant
funds for the project. Preble-Rish,
Inc. engineer Bill Kennedy said
Florida Power has agreed-to help
the project come together.


Gulf County Shipbuilding, Inc.'s first project, shown nearing completion in this July photo,
traveled down the site's marine railway system Wednesday morning and into the Gulf County
Canal. Over the next few days, it will undergo the scrutiny of U.S. Coast Guard inspections.
Workers will continue final construction efforts in port during the coming days, as well as enronte
to its Fort Lauderdale destination from which cruises to the Bahamas are scheduled. Saturday is
the anticipated departure of the diving cruise ship into the Gulf of Mexico.



Redistricting Boundaries Co10se

School Board and County Nearly Decided On Lines


The Gulf County School
Board and Gulf County
Commission seem very close to
making a final decision on .new
redistricting boundaries for their
respective five commission and
board representatives.
Gulf commissioners have
approved new lines which have
been formally advertised. The
school board has tentatively
adopted a plan and is 'scheduled
to vote on the plan during its next
meeting, September I Ith. After
the vote. the school board would
also be required to advertise its
new district lines.
The two maps are very simi-
lar. In fact. other than areas
within the City of Port St. Joe, the:
two maps are identical (see adja-
cent maps).
The scenario adopted by the
county (17-AA Revised) changes
the area within Port St. Joe by
removing a narrow section along
Highway 98 from District 3 (Carl
Fox) and adding .that area to
District 4 (Nathan Peters, Jr.).
This retains the minority district
status for District 4.
The school board, on the
other hand, took a different
approach to balancing district'
numbers. Its members left
District 3 (Linda Wood) within the
city as in the past, but included a
new area of the city along
Highway 98 south.
District 4 (Billy Quinn) would
remain as a minority district, but


a larger portion of the city would
be included in its boundaries.
This area will come from District
5 (Charlotte Pierce) and includes
a two block wide area between
Long Avenue and Monument
Avenue by a six block long area
stretching from 10th Street to
16th Street.
If the two maps are approved,.
voters in the impacted areas will
vote in what is called "split
precincts" or precincts with repre-,
sentation from two different dis-
tricts.
The school board has offered

O ut the': h I have a new daughter!
And you don't have to change
her, feed her, wipe her or burp her.
F inLet me tell you-that's the way to
Final D etais Josh married Lindsey this past

The Gulf County Commission and the Gulf County School
Board are nearly through with the redistricting plans for Gulf '
County.
Now there are certainly some differences, confusion, and
even some concerns as to whether these new lines, by both
boards, will stand the test of time: Both sets of lines are
extremely close. In fact, one would just about have to take a .
magnifying glass to see the difference on a county map.
All of the differences between the two plans lie within the
city limits of Port St. Joe and involve minor boundary fluctu-
ations between Districts 3, 4, and 5 [Commissioners Carl Fox,
Nathan Peters, Jr., and Jerry Barnes; School Board Members
Linda Wood, Billy Quinn, and Charlotte Pierce].
There is no question that the overwhelming majority of '
Gulf County residents and residents of Port St. Joe do "not!!!" '
want to: cope with the confusion of balloting in two different
districts. .
These areas are called split precincts, and regardless of
what anyone might try to convince you, they can be confusing
and cause' extra, unnecessary expense for taxpayers-who,
incidentally, elect the people who are drawing these lines. "
In a recent survey conducted ,by The Star, 930% of those
responding were opposed to the idea of split precincts. 6.n ,-.
J saw Gulf County Supervisor of.Elections Linda Griffin the
other day and the first words that came outof her mouth were
concerns about how confusing split districts would be, and
the fact that it was going to be more expensive to conduct
elections with split precincts. .
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that there is
friction between some of the board members. But, I just don't
think voters and taxpayers are really interested in political
sparring or personality clashes.
They are a lot more interested in.not going to the polls and
having to try and understand why. they're voting for a District
4 county commissioner and a District 3 school board member
when their neighbor across the street is voting for District 4
school board and commission representation. Then. their
other neighbor is voting in District 5 for a' county commis-
sioner and District 4 for a school board member.
I'm beginning to get a little confused just trying to write
about it. '-
I've said from day one of this dispute over the lines that
my major concern is that.each governing board ultimately has
the same district boundaries. I really do not even care which
district I personally end up in. But, it is senseless to have two
different sets of boundaries, especially when the two plans in
question are within a gnat's hair of being identical.
I hope that the voters of Gulf County take note of where
this process is at, and who the people responsible for not
ironing out these details are. Just because these little devia-
tions in the lines don't affect me personally or for that matter
the vast majority of Gulfs voters, does not make it okay.
Voters -in all parts of the county deserve to have like
boundaries and should be very vocal over the apparent failure
of at least some elected representatives to not help make it
happen. If voters will make their stance clearly known, I'm
sure they will get their way-now or later. :


weekend. She is the prettiest addi-
tion to this family since Cathy
joined us back in '74. I have been
watching her move toward us for
the past several years now. With
every visit, trip to the golf course or
dinner out. I have keenly marked
how she carried herself. You see,
I've known her for the last five
years or so-but I have been think-
ing about her since a .cool, crisp
Saturday evening in late November
of 1975.
That's the night I had my nose


pressed against the glass eye-
balling the screaming baby in
bassinet no. 3. i was counting toes
arid fingers and wondenne how me
and this little one were going to get
along. I didn't knov,' a thing about
fathering and I could tell Josh
wasn't too sure if he was in the
right place or not! He would stop to
breathe between yells and eyeball
me right back. No telling what he
was thinking ....
But I can sure fire tell you
what was going through my mind!


I wanted this child to be healthy.
And wise. I prayed Id be the father
he needed. And wanted. And he'd
be the young man and adult of my
dreams.
I checked on Cathy and was
drawn back to the glass. This
young fellow would some day need
a wife. I wondered what she would
be like. Would 'she be giving?
Loving? I wondered about her
smile. Her goodness. ., ,
I thought ,-of Penelope
Crighton. She was rougher than a
stucco bathtub. I once saw. 'her
throw a horse over her shoulder!
Le Ann Cunningham could spit a
stream of Brown Mule fifteen feet
through the gap in her front teeth.
Beverly Cannon had that high
pitched voice and the annoying
habit of grinding her teeth while
we waited for the school bus.
There are a few attributes that
are not necessarily favorable when
searching for a life long mate. [
wondered if he could sort them all
out. There is an array of shapes,
forms, fashions and kinds out
there. Surely he would need my
help! How could I "direct" him
toward a girl like Cathy.
It's amazing what you can
think of and plan.,while the both of
you are hanging dut on either side
of the glass waiting for the nice
lady down in room I 11 to mend!
His wife would have to be per-
fect. Nothing but the best for my
son! She would have to be intelli-
gent, friendly. pretty, have all her
teeth, like sports, not be afraid of
work. respect her elders, wear
clothes that fit. understand the
difference between a frozen- ope
and a Texas leaguer, not complain
about the chips down in the sofa .

I had a lot of things planned
out by the time we rolled out of the
hospital.
Then. life got in the way.
Josh had a mind of his own. I
found out over the years what he
was thinking as he looked up at
me through the glass, thanks
Dad. but I'd rather do it m y way .

I can remember exactly when
Josh and I began some "grown up"
talk about girls. We were on the
tailgate of Uncle Jake's truck lis-
tening to the dogs run. It was a
magic time. We were under the
stars on a still, clear night. Just
the two of us. We both could put
into words now what we had only
"imagined" in our time through the
looking glass.
I was explaining about girls I
had run across over the years. The
funny ones. the pretty but hollow
ones, the friendly ones, the super
canng ones, the idiots ..
Dad, when I grow'up I want to
marry a girl just like Mother."
I smiled from the inside out.
The boy was not going through life
with blinders on.

Chartered Members Take On A Different Look In The Mirror


I ALWAYS: PICTURED a
"charter member" as a grey old
man, stooped over with age and
-getting about on a walker or a
cane. An. old, wrinkled man who
gave sage advice.
Of course, such a man would
be sought out for his wisdom and
good" sense and his memory of
days gone by.
A "charter member" was one
to be revered and looked up to,
not put up with and condescend-
ed.
That was my picture of a
"charter member."
It sounds as if a ."charter
membership" should be some-
thing to be desired, doesn't it?
Lately, I have had other
thoughts about the matter. I have
changed my mind completely and
now consider a "charter member"
as a vibrant, active, good-look-
ing, ,smart, and alert MATURE
man with something to look for-
ward to.


I '~- : ~ ;-~


THE OTHER DAY, someone
reminded me that I am the only
male charter member of Long
Avenue Baptist, Church left alive
That started me to thinking
and changing mny idea of what :a
"charter member" looked'like.
I can't' be a fitting description
of my. former idea of what one
looked like. nor how one acted.
True, people around me move
aside when I am ambling their
way; others open doors for me to
pass through; the person I am
riding with lets'me sit in the front
seat of the car, rather than in the
back; people fetch'..things .and
carry other things for me. :

I was the youngest person in the

ing it, but no longer.

who are younger than me, I. have
come to realize.
Could it be that folks give me
the right-of-way, open doors,
carry my load, and otherwise give
me all that attention for a pur-
pose?
Could I actually fill the bill of

one is still in high school. It does-
n't look like he will be there long
and the other .one just graduated
from college. He'll probably start
"tom-catting" around now, and
make me seem to be even older!
I am still the "charter mem-
ber" of my family. I accept that
with graciousness. But to be the
only "charter member" of the
male persuasion still left in my
church is a definite shock to me.
I have long ago been under
the care of Medicare. My mem-

beginning to fray. One of the kids

Reunion at the Centennial Build-

So many of the kids I remem-
bered from the '50s and '60s ..
even the '70s and '80s were
old gray headed people now.
Why, even the teenagers in the

their actions with guitars and

few years.

.Gulf County Roots


Every year thousands of peo-
ple graduate from college, begin
new careers, or enter the work-
force for the' first time. With jobs
of every shape and size out there,
how do you find the job that is for
you? And, once you find a compa-
ny to work for, how do you move
up'the ladder of success?
Lenora Peters Gant, Ph.D,
'formerly of Port St. Joe, may have
the solution. In her new book A
Guide-Workplace Success: Ten
Steps to Career Advancement
(available from 1st Books
Library), Gant focuses on work-
place interactions, behaviors and
relationships that will help people
- achieve career success.
The focus of this real-world
-based book is 10 key steps that
illuminate a prescription for
workplace success. Under each
step are optional actions and
'strategies thatlcan be put to use



immediately as well as a personal
action planning form. The form is
a tool that helps the reader iden-
tify what will work the best for
them personally.
"This guide is perhaps partic-
ularly useful for new and return-
ing workers. College students who
are about to embark on their
career journey might find this
guide very useful prior to and
during the initial employment
period," Gant says. "Without a
doubt, those first few weeks on
the job can be rather contentious
due partly to building new rela-
tionships and the learning curve
of adjusting to new work
demands."

A representative called The Star

what was being said, and stated
that a caller said the sheriff had
come by The Star office in an
effort to get this paper to not run
the story.
After The Star editor Willie

explain that he was fully aware of
the rumors/lies and there would

for spreading the untrue gossip.
"Drug dealers and criminals
need to realize, this is not going to
discourage me In fact, this
,may even make me more adamant
about doing my job," the sheriff
said.
McKeithen said the rumors
'did not bother him, but the fact
that they continue to get carried
without the validity or truth being
questioned does hurt.

Then he entered high' school.
One girl would wheel up into
the front yard .in that big long con-
vertible. blow the horn and yell out
for Josh. I tackled him halfway out
the door-and reminded him again
of Penelope Crighton.
As he was driving off to college
I was making throwing motions
over my shoulder. And praying he
could read my mind eighteen years
ago on his side of the glass.
I heard about Lindsey before I
saw her. "Dad, I met the girl we
used to talk, about on the back of
Uncle Jake's truck!" "
I khew he was serious. You
could hear it in his voice. He
brought her for a visit the summer
after his second year.; She was
beautiful. And ,making great
grades in college. And she -played
volleyball and softball. And she
seemed to be able to tolerate me .
and that's not,easy!
I thought back to the looking
glass. How's her giving? .And her
goodness? That took a, couple of
more trips. But let me tell you, her
heart is 'her most precious com-
modity! She reminds me at times
of Cathy.
You can't pick any better than
that!
Josh was right all along ....
he didn't heed my help.
Blessed,
Dad

Julia, also the Dead Lakes, the
Apalachicola River and the
Chipola River.
First there are the two lakes,
Lake Alice and Lake Julia. They
were named after the daughters of
the man who founded'
Wewahitchka. Now we; call the
lakes sisters.
Next there are the Dead
Lakes. The Dead Lakes are full of
cypress trees and there is nothing
dead about them. They just look
dead. They have nothing but life.
They have fish, gators and
snakes. People like to fish there. I
live at Stone Mill Creek. That is
just over the bridge which spans
the Dead Lakes so I see them
everyday.
The last thing I am going to
talk about is the Apalachicola
River and The Chipola River. The
Apalachicola river is in my mom's
aunt's backyard. My uncle goes
on the river all the time.
That's some of the water in
Gulf County: the lakes, Dead
Lakes and the rivers.

If you're looking for a friendly,
laid-back place, the Gulf County
is the spot for you. Being in Gulf
County now is almost like being
here thousands of years ago when
the Indians inhabited the land.
When you look around, instead of
seeing traffic jams and buildings
everywhere like in a city there is
beautiful pines and magnolia
trees along with lakes, rivers,
oceans and an abundant amount
of animals like squirrels, turkey
and deer. Gulf County is known
for its tupelo honey which is made
from the world's largest tupelo
tree forest. With all of these bodies
of beautiful aquamarine water
you can count on catching a lot of
fish. Hunting season is one of the
best occasions here because we
have numerous amounts o5 squir-
rels and millions of trees for them
to stay in.Since we live in Florida
our soil is just right for planting
flowers and gardens. Our people
are really nice so you won't have
to worry about your kids at
school. What really makes Gulf
County so great is that everyone is
your friend.

Gators Defeat Jay 7-0 In Season Opener


.. The Wewahitchka Gators'
defense came up with the big
plays when they needed it, as the
Gators defeated the Jay Royals 7-
0 in Friday night's season opener.
"Our kids played very hard
and with a lot of heart," said head
coach Grant Grantham. "Jay was
a really good football team, and
was very physical."
The Royals threatened to
score early after recovering a
Gator fumble on the Wewahitchka
10 yard line. The Gator defense
came up with a good goal line
stand, as Jay missed a 30 yard
field goal attempt to end the
series.
Wewahitchka then drove 60
yards down field, and also ended
their offensive series with a 37
yard field goal attempt that failed.
After forcing the Royals to
punt at the end of the first
,: .quarter, the Gators took over on
; 17 L/jw jm- S.S1' alls gIII SSPifEililll S91f


the Jay 49 yard line and put
together its only scoring drive of
the game. Harold Williams capped
off the nine play drive, when he
bulled his way through the middle
of the Royals defense for a three
yard touchdown run. Matt
Kramer added the extra point to
give Wewahitchka a 7-0 lead with
8:50 left in the first half of play.
Two big plays during the drive
were a 14 yard pass from
quarterback Brandon Jones to
Derrick Williams, and a 19 yard
pass from Jones to Chris Gainer.
The Royals gave the Gators a
scare a few more times during the
game. After driving from their own
29 yard line to the Gators 17,
Derrick Williams picked off a pass
on fourth down to stop Jay.
Late in the fourth quarter, the
Gators fumbled the football on an
option play- a Royals' defender
scooped up the ball and raced


down the open field, but was
caught from behind by Gator
offensive lineman Terrence
Addison.
"Chris Nelson, Blake Rish,
and Terrence Addison were our
unknown heros Friday night,"
said Grantham. "Chris has had
strep throat all week, but gutted it
out this week and played hard.
Blake has a pulled hip flexor and
wasn't able to play, but still did
our long snaps for punts. And
Terrence showed a lot of heart
when he ran down a Jay defender
from behind after a fumble late in
the fourth quarter."
Harold Williams led the Gator
ground game .with, 123 yards
rushing on 18 carries. Brandon
Jones picked up 18 yards on six
carries.
Brandon also completed six of
his 13 pass attempts for 78 yards.


Gator cheerleaders greet the team as they burst their way into another gridiron season.

Medicine & Pharmacy

A Health Team

RVf Medicine and Pharmacy had a common beginning before
splitting into today's two professions. As health knowledge devel-
oped it became increasingly difficult for any single group to keep 3
up with progress in all phases of the health field.
Today, we rely upon the physician to diagnose the health
-' problem and specify the medicine best qualified to correct it. We
as practicing pharmacists then must keep up with progress in the
general health field and make available to the physician and his
patients the hundreds of newer and more effective medications S
that are becoming available.
WE PROUDLY ACCEPT MOST INSURANCE

FHP License and
Vehicle Checkpoints
The Florida Highway Patrol
will be conducting driver license
and vehicle inspection check-
points from September 7th
through 13th on SR-71 near CR-
275, SR-22 near the Bay County
line, and SR-71 near Trailer City.
Recognizing the danger pre-
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on vehi-
cles being operated with defects
such as bad brakes, worn tires
and defective lighting equipment.
In addition, attention will be
directed to drivers who would vio-
late the driver license laws of
Florida.
The patrol has found these
checkpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equipment
and driver license laws of Florida
ensuring the protection of all
motorists.

yard line. Two plays later, the
Trojans scored on a 20 yard run,
then added the two-point
conversion run to take a 21-14
lead with 11:17 left in the third
quarter.

to punt out of their own endzone,
the Trojans took over on Port St.
Joe's 32 yard line; Five plays
later, Hamilton County put the
ball in the endzone on a one yard
touchdown run to take a 28-141
lead with 4:37 left in the third
quarter.
The Sharks then fell apart,
and the Trojans capitalized by
scoring after three Port St. Joe
turnovers. After picking off a
halfback pass thrown by Raye
Bailey intended for Jenkins,
Hamilton County drove 47 yards
in three plays, ending, the drive
with a 28 yard touchdown run.

yards in nine running plays, and

their ensuing possession, giving
the Trojans the ball on the
Sharks' 11 yard line. After being
stopped for a loss of yards, the
Trojans scored on a 15 yard run'
to take a 41-14 lead with :27

particular area. Cost of daily per-
rruts to hunt on one of the same

A study conducted by Boston
University looked at more than 700
American and Swedish teenagers
between the ages of 14 and 17. It con-
cluded that if teenagers grew up in
communities with fluoridated water
supplies and had little problem with
cavities, they'll need fewer bitewing
type x-rays than 'was previously
assumed.
Bitewing films (the kind you hold
in your mouth) show areas between
the teeth where cavities can form with-


luoride Means


Fewer X-Rays

out being detected by visual examina-
tion. They are usually taken every six
to twelve months.
The study determined that
teenagers who grew up in fluoridated
areas and having no sign of cavities
could stretch out their bitewing x-rays
to once every two and one-half years.
The risk of developing undetected cav-
ities between x-rays was only five per-
cent.
Teenagers who grew up without
fluoride are at greater risk of getting'
cavities and should have x-rays taken
every year, the study said. Also, teens
who drink soda or eat a high sugar diet
should have x-rays taken. Fluoridated
water has proven to be one of this cen-
tury's miracle cavity-preventers.

SThere has been a community-
wide 'effort of late .to raise funds
for the construction of a new pub-
li' library to be built, in
Wewahitchka. A Catfish
Tournament and Festival held
August 17 and 18 raised funds for
that purpose and several WES
-students and teachers joined in
the fun.
S WES teachers Ms. April
Bidwell and Ms. Esther Taunton
coordinated a rather unusual way
.for WES youngsters to become a
:part of the effort. Dozens of stu-
: dents donated cash in the form of
* an entry fee paid to participate in
a race through the center of town'.
,'What made this race so unusual
was the fact that as the children
ran down Main Street each drib-
.bled a basketball!
Students representing every
grade, Pre-K through sixth, met at
'Glad Tidings Assembly of God'
,'Church on that Friday afternoon
to prepare for the event. Sgt. Mark
SCutler of the Gulf County Sheriffs

Just when you think you
have seen it all, along come our
student leaders with something
new! Last Friday, just prior to our
pep rally, NHS sponsored its first-
ever Labor Auction. NHS mem-
hers were aucioned off to bidders
who receive their services on
Tuesday and Wednesday of this
week. But that's not the whole of
it- they assumed other personali-
ties in their efforts to attract big-
ger bucks. For example, Ryan
Martin was President Bush,
Lindsey Carter was Cat Woman,
Jana Traylor was Annie Oakley,
and Jonathan Thomas was Zorro.
However, the best-received imper-
sonation and the probably the
highest bid went to Alex Chan as
Mr. Garry Kent. Good job, NHS!
The Fighting Gators had a
tough opponent this past Friday
in. the form of Jay High School.
WHS scored in the second period
and it held up as we beat the
Royals by a 7-0 score. We are
looking for another difficult foe
this week as we host Bay High at
7.:00. The following week we trav-
;ei;to Carrabelle for a 6:30 (CT)
game.
-: The band debuted at the Jay
game. Looks like we have another
fine crew to represent us again
this year.
> The Junior Varsity got off to aw
flying start with a rousing 38-8
victory over Apalachicola last '
Thursday. Congratulations,
young pators! This week they
travel to Liberty County who
always offers some stiff competi-
tion.
The Lady Gator Volleyball
teki had a tough week last week
losing both contests. They will
start playing their district, sched-
ule .this week. The girls have
games on Tuesday and Thursday,
v..ersus Munroe and Apalachicola,
respectively.
After the varsity football game
this Friday night, The Chapel on
Second Street will be hosting the
next Fifth Quarter. Students are
invited to eat, be entertained, and
enjoy some good fellowship.
Congratulations to Jonathan
Thomas who shot a 39 at the
tough Port St. Joe course during
the Gators" match last week. The
golf team resumes it! action this
week. ,'
K-Mart is sponsoring a new
program that will allow our school
to receive rebates from your shop-
ping sprees at their stores. Soon
we will be receiving our Parent
Packs from K-Mart. Inside these
packs you will find special cards
that have a code on them that will
enable all purchases to be
processed under our name; thus.
we will earn a percentage of all
your purchases! And guess what-
you can send these cards to
friends and relatives, too. They all
will have our code and that means
more funds for us. The expected
arrival date of our packets', is
September 10th.
School Picture Days are
almost upon us. Senior Portraits
will be takenion September 12th.
There is a S35 sitting fee for these
portraits. Grades 7-11: will have
their school photos shot on 9/20.
Please dress for the occasion. All
students will have pictures taken;
however, purchases will be
optional. (These photos are for the
yearbook!)
Sophomores had a great time
traveling to Apalachicola this past
Thursday for the Dixie Theatre.
-They watched a couple of Anton
Chekhov's plays and enjoyed
them greatly!
The next meeting of' the
Middle 'School Task Force will be
next Monday 9/10. The next
meeting of the School Advisory
Council (SAC) is set for 9/26 at
2:45.
S- The final date to turn in Free
and Reduced lunch forms is
September 10th. Please take dare
of this important duty.
Congratulations to a couple of
our top students. Lindsey Carter
is the recipient of the National
Principal's Award as sponsored by
NASSP and Alex Chan has taken
top honors in the science/math
area. They will be competing for
further recognition and awards in
the near future.
We are pleased to announce
that we have a coordinator for our
Volunteers in Partnership pro-
gram (VIP). Mrs. Cherlyn
McNamara is already taking
names and areas of interest. You
may contact her through the
school if you would like to help.
Parents and students are
encouraged to take advantage of
their new lockers by putting locks
on them. This is the best way to
protect your valuables.


Our students are meeting
regularly: FCA on Mondays &
Friday, NHS on Tuesdays, SGA
on Wednesday, and Beta on
Thursday. This is great stuff!
Wewahitchka High School is a
tobacco free campus and has
been for several years now. Please
cooperate with this state law by
not using tobacco products at our
public events. This complies with
the law and sets a good example
for our young people.
Circle your calendar for a
unique evening of theater as the
WHS Drama Club will present
"Man of the House on Saturday
evening September 20th. This
comedy will uplift you. but that s
not all we will offer. Rumor has it
that we will also do some
Broadway show tunes in order to
rekindle our interest in musicals.
Plan to join us!
There was a great article in
the Sunday Parade maGazine by
Tom Lovelace. The author is a
veteran educator with a lot of
research to back up his points.
His, message to parents and stu-
dents is how to get tihe most Out of
the schooling experience. The first
point is to expect homework. The
average number of minutes per
week is about 134. And research
has shown that one should hope
to have 10 minutes per grade level
" per, night to achieve high marks.
'This would be 70 minutes for 7th
graders. 90 minutes for 9th
'graders. etc.

Florida Garden

Extension Notes

by
Roy Lee Carter
Gulf County Extension Service




Fall L ndscape


action


Se very busy
month Yi garden hob-
byists -. sunshine state. A
new vegetable gardening season is
here. Now's the time to make
preparations for planting annuals
and ornamental shrubs. Also, this
is a good time for general cleanup
of' home grounds. Since warm
weather is still with us, we need to
continue to be watchful for insect
and diseases problems.
In this article I will talk about
some garden projects that need
attention at the beginning of the
fall gardening season. My infor-
mation was provided by Extension
Urban Horticulture Specialist Dr.
Robert Black of the University of
Florida.
If you want a flower garden
this fall, now's the time to decide
on a location and start preparing
the soil. You should try to locate
the garden 'bed in an area that
receives full sun for at least half
the day. If possible, stay away
from large trees. Tree roots will
quickly use 'any nearby fertilizer
and water; So, you want to grow
your flowers in a spot where trees
won't compete for soil moisture
and nutrients.
Florida gardeners may choose
from a wide selection of attractive
annuals for fall planting. Some of
the hardy species, which will tol-
erate cold weather, include
alyssum, candytuft, dianthus,
baby's breath, verbena, phlox,
calendulas, petunias, pansies,
snapdragons, and sweet peas. All
of these, which can be planted in
late September, should be readily
available at most garden centers
throughout our state.
During September and
October, a substance called
Gibberellic acid is often used on
camellias. When properly
employed,. gibberellic acid
increases flower size, and pro-
duces blooms much sooner than
would be possible without the
treatment. Encouraging early
flowering of camellias is a good


idea, because it minimizes the
danger of freeze damage, and
helps insure an abundance of
blooms.
If you're interested in trying
gibberellic acid on your camellias,
here's how. First, select a well-
developed flower bud. Remqve the
growth bud that you'll find grow-
ing next to the flower bud. When
you've done this, you'll notice a
.small cup-like place where the
growth bud came off. Fill this cup
with one drop of the acid solution.
Usually, you'll notice a difference
in bud size, between treated and
untreated camellias, in about a
week.
September is the last time you
should prune poinsettias. As
we've pointed out previously,
poinsettias should be pruned reg-
ularly during spring and summer
growth', to develop more compact
plants with an abundance of.
showy bracts. But you should not
prune 'after September 10th,
because you'll reduce flowering by
removing buds that begin devel-
oping about that time. If you'd like
to prune your poinsettias once
more, do it now. Cut back the new
growth that's about 12 inches
long, leaving at least four leaves
on each shoot. But, as we've said,
do no further cutting after the
10th of this month!

Finally, don't relax your guard
against lawn and ornamental
pests. It's still hot enough for
insects, like scales, whiteflies,
mites, aphids, and caterpillars, to
cause serious ornamental dam-
age. And, sod webworms and fall
armyworms could still injure your
lawn. Also, the disease brown
patch might infest your lTawT-
- grass If you' notice any of these'
problems, start control measta4RAW
immediately. For specific control'
advice, check with your garden
center, or your county extension
agent.


Florida World War II Memorial


Needs Artifacts to Finish Exhibit


TALLAHASSEE. Florida's
World War II Memorial needs sev-
eral artifacts to complete the
exhibit portion of the Memorial.
Located in the Museum of Florida
History, the exhibit is biit one
part of Florida's Living WWII
Memorial honoring the 248,000
Floridians who served in uniform
.during the war as well as those
who maintained the "home front"
and helped propel Florida into
unparalleled industrial and eco-
nomic growth. Over 600,000
World War II veterans now call
Florida "Home."
Components of the Memorial
include:
A permanent Florida WWII
Memorial (to be a replica of the
Florida portion of the National
WWII Memorial in Washington,
D.C.) adjacent to the' Museum of
Florida History;
A major traveling exhibit that
will be "on loan" to major muse-
ums. around the state for four"
months each;
A permanent WWII exhibit in
the Museum of Florida History;
A statewide network of WWII
resources that includes military
installations, veterans' organiza-
tions, historic sites, museums,
libraries, universities, and histor-
ical societies, made accessible to
the public through the Internet;
A full-color publication on
WWII in Florida history as part of
the Florida Heritage Trail series,
which will identify more than. 150
sites and individuals throughout
-the state and explain their signifi-
cance during World War II; and
A public education program
to include a statewide supplemen-
tary curriculum, classroom mate-
rials, resource guides, community
events, and awareness and
preservation projects.
"We're planning to dedicate
the exhibit portion of the
Memorial on December 7, 2001,
marking the 60th anniversary of
the attack on Pearl Harbor," said
Jennifer Carroll, Executive
Director of the Florida
Department of Veterans' Affairs.
The complete project will cost
$1.9 million, all of which must be
funded with private or corporate
dollars ,
"This is an opportunity for
Floridians to help build a memor-
ial to those who served their
coiptry-with honor, acted with
hetoism;, and gave us the price-
less gift of freedom. The highest
tribute we can give our WII veter-
ans is to build a comprehensive,
educational living memorial that
will preserve the accomplish-
ments of those who sacrificed for.

inspections for 10 years.
Ann Jeffries, Environmental

said that inspectors have shared
