The Wewahitchka City
Commission met in regular ses-
sion Tuesday evening and tackled
a relatively light agenda.
Board members accepted a
contract proposal presented by
Michael Tucker, CPA to conduct
the annual audit for the City of
Wewahitchka. Tucker's company
has conducted auditing services
for the city for the past several
years. City Manager Don Minchew
stated of Tucker, "His work has
always been very accurate."
Commissioners also agreed to
the use of Lake Alice Park for the
"Miracle Mile Walk." This fund-
raising function is tentatively set
for Saturday, October 20th.
Funds are being raised to help the
St. Jude Children's Hospital. This
function will not interfere with
regular public use of the park.
The Northwest Florida
Improvement Foundation (NFIF)
announced Monday that it was
providing $25,000 toward the
construction of a new building fori
'the Wewahitchka Public Library.
The NFIF is funded by sales at
Arvida communities and was
established by The St. Joe
, Company. The library, to be con-
structed on a site donated by the
City of Wewahitchka, is next door
to the historic Wewahitchka
County Courthouse where the
current library is located.

Drugs and Cash Seized
In Arrest By P.S.J.P.D,'
David V. Martin, 39, pf Port
St. Joe, was taken into custody by
Port St. Joe Police Officer Rusty
Burch on September 18 during a
traffic stop. Martin was one of
threefront-seat passengers in a
car driven by. Joseph Fichera.
Fichera was stopped in the 400
block of Monument Avenuie for a
defective brake light;
Officer Burch, aware of active
warrants on Martin, advised
Martin he was under arrest, and
Martin fled by pushing the two
female passengers into the officer.
Burch approached Martin as he
fell in the gravel of a nearby park-
ing lot, and aimed a burst of
Capsicum spray at Martin as he
again ran. Martin was appre-
hended and handcuffed when he'
fell again, his vision being blurred
by the spray.
Martin was returned to the
patrol car with assistance from
Officer Hersey. A search of his
person turned up $1,100 in cash,
a large amount of empty- small
baggies, and a plastic bottle of
powder that field-tested as
cocaine. EMS was called to the
scene after Martin appeared to be
near passing out. Martin was
transported to the Gulf County
Jail, which he entered under his
own power, complaining only of
the spray on his face.
After being jailed, Martin suf-
fered alleged drug-induced
seizures and was transported to
Gulf Pines Hospital accompanied
Corrections officer Tracy
Sanders found illegal drugs: and
cash on Martin during booking.
The drugs were in small baggles
similar to those found by the offi-
cers at the arrest site; and a plas-
tic syringe needle cap on Martin.
Sanders also recorded track
marks on both inner arms.
Burch returned to the patrol
car where a search of the rear
compartment turned up a
recently used syringe which was
sent to the FDLE lab for analysis.
A search of Martin's personal
belongings revealed $665.83 in
cash and money orders, new
syringes similar to that found in
the patrol car, powder. that field-
tested as cocaine, and a wooden
box containing coins and

County Adopts Millage/Budget
Public Budget Hearing Draws A Large Crowd
Gulf County commissioners
adopted millage rates and the new
county budget during their final
budget hearing Monday after-
noon, but not without input from
a packed house.
On the one hand, several tax-
payers, approached the board
requesting lower millage rates
and a reduction in the 11.56
increase in budget.
On the other hand, county
employees and sheriffs depart-
ment employees were poised to
protect their proposed raises.
"You tell them they don't
deserve raises," Commissioner
Billy Traylor said' to those
requesting tax relief.
Trish Petrie, owner of Turtle
Beach Inn, was one of 'several
property owners who told how
increases in taxes were impacting
her. "I don't want to go out of
business because of property
taxes," she told the board.
County employee Greg
Pickerin explained to the board
just how little the 3% increase in
their pay was going to have on
employees bottom line-"The
raise we got won't cover the
amount gas went up."
Sally Malone suggested one
place the board might look to
reduce spending is their
$125,000 special projects fund-
". that you spread around so
you can get re-elected."
After discussion, the board
voted to pass the budget and mill-
Board Chairman Peters out-
lined to those present how the
budget process had taken place
and that several opportunities for
public input had been made avail-
able. He encouraged those pre-
sent to get involved in the process

get approval next year.
There was standing room only for the county's final tax hearing.

Close To Home
It's Broke and
Needs Fix in
The State of Florida has got to have one of the most unfair tax-
ing systems in the nation. Collecting tax revenues based upon the
value of a person's property is just wrong, and it's time for the cit-
izens of Florida to stand up in protest and demand a revamping of
I can't even begin to tell you the number of people who have
spoken to me over the past few months about their taxes. Now,
most all of these folks have been true blooded Americans who have
no problem with paying their fair share of taxes. But, they are hav-
ing a problem with their definition of fair and what our taxing rules
Most everyone knows how ad valorem tax bills are derived-
value is assessed on property and taxing authorities levy millage
rates which tax owners based oh a formula millage rate X 1,000 X
property value = taxes. For example, a house worth $100,000 tax
rate is [county rate (including fire districts) of 6.9485 + school
board rate of 7.332] 14.2805 X 100 = $1,428.05. Residents in the
City of Port St. Joe should add 6.67 mills and residents/property
owners in Wewahitchka should add 4.0 mills to figure what their
taxes would be based on property values.
I know of no one who has a legitimate complaint with the
appraisals placed on their property. It is also true that the county
and school board have received an increase of approximately $350
million worth of taxable property values just over the last ,three
years-S1 18 million of which came this year.
We can argue till the cows come home about whether or not
millage rates are too high, could taxes be lowered, are we spending
too much or too little for various and sundry services, goods, equip-
ment, and wages. We'll never come to a consensus on this question
simply because everyone has different needs, wishes, desires, and
opinions.'Ultimately, the voters have elected representatives on the
governing boards and they should communicate their wishes and
concerns to them in clear terms.
The voters have the authority to shape their own destiny .
They also have the responsibility to use sound reasoning in seeking
(Didn't mean to get off the subject and go rabbit hunting.)
What is unfair, in my opinion, is for a person's home or proper-
ty to 1009o determine how much their tax bill is going to be.
In many cases, there is no allowance for income level. But, if
you live in a home and have homestead exemption on that proper-
ty, you are limited to a maximum of 3% per year increase in taxes
regardless of how much your appraised value is increase d.a is is
a good rule and does indeed help folks on fixed income who happen
to get caught up in escalation of property values (especially beach-
front) taking place in some areas of the county. But, hold on to your
seat if you happen to own two pieces of property, have a second
home and plan on retiring in the area, own a business, or do not
otherwise have the protection of a homestead exemption on esca-
Raising taxes for the state and county budgets should be based
on some system other than how much a person's house or proper-
ty is worth. The only truly fair way, if there is one, to tax people is'
based on their income. How someone chooses to invest or spend
their money should have absolutely no bearing on how much they
pay in taxes. .
He who is wise may make good investments or decide they want
to live in a really nice house. Another-equally as wise person- may
want to live in a house of much lesser value or not invest his money
in property at all ... neither of these groups should be punished
because of how they prefer to spend or use their money. Those who
invest their money, whether it be in property or any other sound
investment, and make a profit would pay more in taxes because
they made more money.
It's time for the taxpayers not only of Gulf County, but through-
out the state of Florida, to begin a petition drive to place this ques-
tion on the next statewide ballot and brihg fair mindedness back to
our state's taxing system.. .
Eddie Carden lived out past
the big intersection where Highway
79 crosses State Road 22. He grew,
up on that curve where the road
turned back toward Huntingdon. I
lived "way out"on the opposite side
of town. You didn't wake up at my
house and just -accidentally" drop
by over at Eddie's!
I still managed to make it quite
frequently. He was a good friend.
His mother would let you eat all
the cookies you wanted. He had a
big tree out in his front yard that
was just right for climbing. Arid, as
we grew older, that tree provided
afternoon shade for some pretty
hotly contested baseball games.
Eddie was a year' older than
me. But in such a small communi-

ty. we all needed each other to field
a team. Going to your right for a
ground ball or catching a football
over either shoulder was much
more important than age!
Eddie had a sister, Martha.
who was two years younger than
me. She was always around, but I
didn't really notice her much. She
was pretty quiet. And she was, a lit-
tle too small to play ball with us.
Eddie was about as laid, bAck
as I was intense. I'd attack every
game like it could be my last. Easy

record," he said.
Tommy Knox, Jonie's hus-
band and also a former Gulf
County commissioner, ap-
proached the board and spent
several minutes protesting the
selection question and the
process and expressed that he felt,
his wife had been wronged.
Knox said his wife was most
qualified, the committee was for-
merly under the supervision of
the former commissioner, Yeager,
and questioned the board's hiring
SprTctices and if they were dis-
criminating against women.
Don Butler recanted Knox's
'claims and, "He's not going to
intimidate me, my recommenda-
tion does not change."
,.Butler said the committee
I ade its recommendation based
solely on the applications and
interview, and no one was influ-
enced by current or former board
members in any way. Further-
more, no board members had
made contact with the committee.
Z Hamibond also addressed the
board specifically asking Board
Chairman Peters, "You told me
Friday if you could get two more
votes, you were going to fire me.",
Hammond went on to say he
did not ask to be placed on the
committee, nor did he want to be
placed on the committee, but he
did feel the committee had worked
Shard and made the best selection.
'He asked the board chair-
man, "Are we straight, or do we
still have problems?"
Peters said he was concerned
that other board members may
have placed him (Hammond) on
the committee and he now under-
stands it was County Adminis-
"I told Yeager not to take the
job," Hammond said.
He went on to explain, "When
the board is fighting, it puts
everyone on the staff right in their
Ms. Wibberg also stated she
stood behind her recommenda-
tion. She said her association
with Yeager as a former commis-
sioner was no different than her
association with Knox, who is also
.a former commissioner.
The board voted 3-1 (Peters
opposed) to revisit the county's
subdivision ordinance. Commis-
sioner Carmen McLemore
expressed that in many cases
some of the issues facing develop-
ers in the north end of the county
were different than those faced by

Gulf Commission Deals With
State Park Public Meeting Goes Well
"Last Thursday night's public
workshop on the T. H. Stone
Memorial State Park, located
along the last several miles of the
tip: of St., Joseph Peninsula,
brought together final plans to
resolve some local concerns and
differences on park management
Over the past several weeks,
members of a local park advisory
board have met with park regula-
tors in an effort to work through
these issues/concerns and pre-
sent a plan of action. These meet-
ings have been reported in The
Star as five basic areas of concern
1) shoreline access to the
wilderness preserve located along
the end of the park;
2) interior access to the

Issue #1: Shoreline Access
to the Wilderness Preserve
Recommendation: AlloW visi-
tors to access the preserve by boat
within a designated zone along the
entire preserve shoreline without
registering or paying a fee.
Two designated use zones are
proposed. Within .75 miles of the
point on the gulf side and .25
miles of the'point on the bay side
(red zone), visitors arriving by
boat can access the preserve's
beach seaward of the vegetation
line and outside of areas posted to
The vegetation line is the area
in which live plants first appear.
as one moves inland from the
water's edge, and includes grass-
es, vines,, shrubs, etc. (i.e. all
plant life). These plants are
important for their role in build-
ing and maintaining the beach
dune community and can'easily
be damaged by foot traffic.
The beach area also provides
important habitat for state and
federally protected shorebirds.
Locations used by nesting shore-
birds will be clearly' posted during
the nesting season.
Visitors in private boats may
access the rest of the preserve
shoreline within 25 feet of the
water's edge or seaward of the
vegetation line, whichever dis-
tance is shorter (yellow zone).
Visitors in these- areas are also
expected to not enter areas posted
to protect shorebirds.
In addition, shoreline visitors
will be expected to refrain from
the following while visiting the
preserve: consuming drugs or
alcohol, bringing dogs onshore,
building ground fires, lighting
fireworks, camping, hunting or
removing or, damaging natural
and cultural resources (collection
of empty seashells is permitted).
By remaining within these
designated zones, and observing
park rules, boaters can visit the
preserve, will not be,required to
register with the park prior to
their visit or pay an entrance fee,
and impacts to the preserve's list-
ed species and natural and cul-
tural resources will be minimized.
Private individuals that rent boats
can also access the preserve
shoreline under these conditions.
Issue #2: Interior Access to
interested in accessing the interior
of the preserve for day use or
overnight camping can do so by
registering with the park.office and
paying the normal entrance or
Three access points along the
bay shoreline are proposed to
accommodate day use visitors
arriving by boat to explore the
preserve's interior (see attached
map). Site A and B are proposed
to allow motorized vessels. Site C
is recommended for non-motor-
ized access only. Motorized ,ves-
sels cause damage to natural
resources in this area due to shal-
low depths and extensive sea-
Camping will still be allowed
throughout the preserve except
for the Gulf beach, within the
dunes or between the point and
the northernmost tree line.
Issue #3: Monitoring Visi'tr
Use and Impacts in the
information on visitor use, visitor
experiences, and recreational un-
pacts to the preserve's resources.
To supplement the current
tracking of visitation through the
preserve registration system, park,
staff will regularly survey the
shoreline to provide an accurate
count of day visitors arriving by
boat. This information is essential
to assessing progress on main-
taining the preserve's carrying
capacity. A regular monitoring
program will provide documenta-
tion of resource impacts over

From 1970 to 1996 Gulf
County had an on-going local
Junior Miss program. There: has
been no Junior Miss program
here since, that uLime primarily
because of a lack of sponsorship.
This program offers far too many
opportunities for the many out-
standing senior, girls in Gulf
County to be passed up.-
Because there is presently no
specific local sponsor, funding is
needed to provide the required
local scholarships and minimal
production costs. Those wishing

subjected to loud noise for a period of time should have an elec-
tronic hearing test at least once a year. If there is a hearing prob-
lem, a FREE electronic hearing test may reveal that new

A leisurely, relaxing, sun-tan-
ning Saturday afternoon turned
into an. exciting, but concerned
and caring effort for two Georgia
ladies,, Betsy and Joyce.
Two' blocks away from where
they were sitting on the beach,
rolling at the edge of the surf was
what they thought was a large-
shark. It turned out to be Jonahl
Now. their thought was that it
was a dolphin and knew it needed
So they took a sheet and put..
it under him and lugged him outr
to deeper water, all the while hop-
ing a real shark didn't attack
them But, their efforts were in
vain. Jonah floated back to shore.
The next step was to get to the
nearest phone which was at
Beach Lumber on St. Joe Beach
and across the street from where
Jonah is located. They related the
information to owner Bobby Pate
and he in turned call me.
After having assessed the
"dolphin's" dilemma (I wasn't con-
vinced It was a dolphin.),. I called
for: turtle volunteers' assistance
who lived near the area. Our goal
was to keep Jonah from getting
water into his blow-hole and to
keep him moist. As Betsy, Joyce,
Jody. Pat and Bob began the
efforts of our goal, I contacted Ron
Hardy at Gulf World Marine Park
in Panama City Beach and let him
know what we had. They were in
the midst of the annual Optimist
Club fund-raiser held at the Park,
and it would be couple of hours
and the truck would be ,on its
way. The truck was readied, as
Cheryl Joyner, head dolphin
trainer at Gulf World was finish-
ing a show with the dolphins.
Then, she. Ashley and Mark set
out to St. Joe Beach. As soon as
Cheryl saw him she said, "It's a
pygmy killer whale!"
Wow! Since their truck did not
have four-wheel drive, he was
loaded onto a stretcher and
placed headfirst into our turtle
patrol vehicle, which was recently
donated to us from the Gulf
County Sheriffs Office, and taken
to the Pine Street access where he
was placed into a foam-lined
truckbed for transport to Gulf
World. We made a detour to
Betsy's house just down the street
to wet him down and wash the
i-hdi from under him arid then he
was on his way.
In researching the pygmy
killer whale, I found that they are
extremely aggressive! Well, Jonah
is really ill. He barely moved and
he squealed and squeaked some
as if to say, 'I'm in pain."
Preliminary testing shows that he
has a probable liver problem that
could be severe, and pneumonia.
Antibiotics will be used and more
tests will be made to determine
severity and causes of the liver

The pygmy killer whale was
named by an English curator of
the British Museum, John Gray,
in 1875. He named the species
Feresa attenuata after having
studied two unidentified skulls of
The cetacean group includes
two: the baleen whales and the
toothed-whales. Jonah is of the
toothed-whale group which also
includes dolphins and porpoises.
The pygmy killer whale is
about the size of a dolphin with a
massive upper torso and a slender
back area. The dorsal fin is tall
and curved with a rounded point
on the tip. The side flippers ,are
longer and fluke is larger than a
dolphin s. They have a rounded
head with the upper jaw which
has 8-11 pairs of teeth extending
over the lower jaw that contains
11-13 pairs of teeth. The lips are
white and it has a distinctive
white 'goatee' under its chin. Their
color is usually dark gray. A fea-
ture that is unique to this whale is
that it can extend its eves out
from the socket so that it can see
what's behind it.
The whale can grow to 11 feet
and ctan- weigh as much as 400
Jonah is 7'10' and weighs'
;.around 300 pounds. He is esti-
mated to be 5-7 years old.
These whales travel in groups
of about 50 animals, but some-
times may be in company with
hundreds. They are rarely seen
and travel all over the Earth in the
tropical and subtropical deep
waters. They may also be seen in
the company of hump-back
whales. They are extremely
aggressive animals and will bully
and kill other smaller species.
They are playful and acrobatic on
the water's surface. They eat fish
such as tuna and squid.
Sometimes they get caught in the
tuna nets and die.
Jonah. as of Monday AM is
not doing very well. He will be
treated with a special antibiotic
beginning this morning to deter-
mine if that will work for him in
treating his illnesses.

that made the Saltwater Slam a
huge success! With the help of the
Gulf County Tourist Development
Council, Port St. Joe Marina,
Dockside Cafe, Slam sponsors
and volunteers the tournament
this year was one of the best.
'Especially important in planning
and coordinating was Board Vice-
president Dr. Dusty May. His
expertise in planning and organiz-
ing was invaluable to Chamber
Director Sandra Chafin. Also,
every instrumental in success of
the tournament was Board
President Shirley Ramsey and,
Treasurer Johanna White.
"These Chamber of
Commerce board members made'
my job a lot easier! Without their
commitment to events sponsored
by the Chamber it would be
impossible to have success in our
activities. Each board member
made valuable contributions and
helped to make the tournament a
success. We had many volunteers
at the tournament who helped us
tremendously with jobs large and
small. Again, the Chamber staff
says a big thank you to all
involved in making this event so
successful," concluded Chafin.

.Time has a way of corning up
behind people. It brings about age
and responsibility much faster
than we expect. The seniors of
PSJHS are just now realizing what
is happening and we are trying to
prepare and keep up with all that
needs to be done.
So many activities are going on
right now, especially for the
seniors. This past Friday,
September 21, Mr. Lanford with
Herff-Jones came to PSJ to order
senior items such as shirts, tas-
sels, jewelry and invitations. Also,
this past Monday, September 24,
the seniors sat for their senior por-
traits. These are the things we will
cherish and remember for the rest
; In sports, the volleyball team
is: doing well. The jv and varsity
Lady Sharks volleyball teams
defeated Apalachicola on the 17th.
On the 20th, the Lady Sharks trav-
eled to Blountstown. Varsity
played Blountstown and Bristol
axrid were defeated in both games.
The junior varsity played Bristol
and was also defeated. The next
game for the Lady Sharks will be
against Carrabelle. With 15 gaines
left, they are off to a good start.
The Sharks football team is
still in a slump. With a record of 0-

Co-Payments for NEW! See The Star On Line at
Veterans Prescriptions www.StarFL.com
Will Increase to $7.00 Mid.A 4,, .
A proposed Department of
Veterans' Affairs regulation that
will increase 1co-payment some
veterans make for outpatient pre-
scriptions was published in the
For the past decade, veterans
have paid $2 for each 30-day sup-
ply of medication furnished on an
outpatient basis for treatment of a
This will increase to $7, with a,
maximum annual out-of-pocket
payment of $840 for veterans in
certain enrollment categories.
In 1990 VA spent $715 mil-
lion for pharmaceuticals. Wh1* .
co-payments remained the same
during the next 10 years, the cost
of medicines rose to $2.1 billion in
2000. Under the new regulatJon,
co-payments could increase with
inflation, along with caps, based
on the Prescription Drug portion
of the Consumer Price Index.
Certain veterans currently do
not have to make medication co-
payments and the proposed regu-
lation would not change that. The
following veterans are exempt
from the regulations proposed:
*Veterans who have a service-
,connected disability rating 50% or
*Veterans who are receiving
medication for a service-con-
*Veterans with incomes below
the maximum amount of VA pen-
*And a limited number of
other veterans exempt by public
During fiscal year 2000, 1.1
million veterans received medica-
tion from the VA, averaging 47
prescriptions (30-day supply)
each. VA collected $101 million in
fiscal year 2000 for medication co-
pays. It is anticipated that the
same number of veterans will con-
tinue to use VA at the new co-pay-
ment rate, generating an increase
in payment of $250 million annu-
ally. Every dollar collected will be
returned to the VA facility where
the veteran received medical care.
VA believes that the proposed
$7/medication co-payment would
be lower than or equal to most
medication co-payments charged
by the private health care. Indus-
try. The purpose of the annual
cap is, to help eliminate financial
hardships for veterans who in
unusual circumstances need a
significant number of prescrip-
tions. The cap is based on a vet-
eran who averages more than 10
prescriptions a month.
Veterans and other interested
parties have 60 days to voice any
concerns with the proposed regu-
lation to: Director, Office of
