1st Birding & Wildflower Festival Starts thursday..


As of press time this week,
approximately 200 people had
made reservations to attend the
1st Annual Florida Birding and
Wildflower Festival being spon-
,,sored by the St. Joe Wildlife
Sanctuary and Education Center,
Inc., Gulf County Tourist


Development Committee, Mexico
Beach Community Development
Council, and Visit Florida on
October 11th to 14th.
While the center of activity,
will be festival headquarters at
the Centennial Building in Port
St. Joe, the tours associated with


Monarch butterflies and wildflowers are in full flutter in the month
of October. Viewers can expect to see these and other beauties.


the festival, will span through
Gulf, Franklin, and Bay counties.
One of the event's main orga-
nizers and president of St. Joe
Wildlife Sanctuary and Education
Center, Inc., Marie Steele-
Romanelli, is fully expecting that
250 to 300 birders and wildflower
viewers will be signed up by the,
time the event's registration is
underway Thursday (October
11th) at noon.
While this number falls a lit-
de short of her wish list figure of
500 participants, don't think for a
moment she is disappointed
though.
"For a first year event, these
are very impressive figures,"
Marie said.
"We're trying to reveal an
undiscovered season (early fall) in
our area's economy-it's incredi-
ble that this first giant step is get-
ting started so well." she added.
"People have signed up from
as far away as Canada: Nowaygo.,
Michigan; Loveland, Ohio:
Chicago. Illinois: Greenville..
South Carolina: and 'New
Orleans. Louisiana," Marie said,
as she reviewed some of the regis-


tration lists.
To date,. only about 15 of the
200 folks registered are, local
viewers. This is expected to
change when the registration
begins Thursday. The Centennial
Building will also serve as the site
of many of the lectures being held


during the festival. Vendors and
educational displays will be held
at the adjacent Constitution Park
and museum.
Some of the events being fea-
tured are: Neotropicals & Shore-

VFW Organizing Boy


& Girl Scouts In Wewa


A notice to the fathers, moth-
ers, and grandparents of 'north
Gulf County and the Wewahitchka
area:
The Veterans of Foreign Wars,
Post 8285, and the Ladies
Auxiliary of VFW Post 8285, are
very concerned about the chang-
ing world conditions, both in for-
eign countries and here at home.
These old VFW warriors, and
their ladies, are convinced that we
can do something to prepare our
young people for a different stan-
dard of survival in America than
has been experienced since our
Founding, Fathers established
America's independence. The first
thing brought up was there
should be more activities here for
our youth. Yes, we have baseball,
but only so many can be on a
team. So, what are the other
young people to do? What activi-
ties are available??
The VFW and the Ladies
Auxiliary, in talking-to many peo-
ple, have decided that the best all-
around programs that will give a
broad range of activities to all the
young people from first grade
through high school, are the
Scouting programs. These organi-
zations offer a very wide range of
activities, workshops, camping,
.hiking, exploring and more. They
are guided and taught to do their
duty to God and their country and
to respect the American flag.
They learn to obey laws, to
respect and help each other and
all other people. They learn how to
survive, to physically take care of
themselves, and how to give emer-
gency help to others. This is really
necessary with the world as it is
now. They learn camping and a
multitude of skills, for which they
are presented many awards at
scouting ceremonies. And their
parents are invited to witness
these events as their own children
advance and become better citi-
zens.


Scouting programs teach
leadership, and produce well-
mannered and fine young citizens
who will one day use, the many
skills learned in Scouting as they
take their places as future leaders
of our community .and our coun-
try.- Scouting is more conducive to
learning proper respect and con-
duct individually and as part of a
group; personal and moral con-
duct are heightened; personal and
community safety are stressed.
All parents/adults are

"Monumental Music"

On Sat, October 20th

Junior Service League's Free
"Monumental Music" Concert
The Junior Service League of
Port St. Joe will host a free con-
cert, "Monumental Music", in
Constitution Park on Saturday,
October 20th. The concert will
feature Stainless Steel, a calypso
duet playing popular Island and
beach favorites from 3:00 to 5:00
p.m. EST. This concert will mark
the third year that the Junior
Service League of Port St. Joe has
provided this cultural enrichment
project for the community. Hopes
are that a large crowd will take
this opportunity to come together
and enjoy the company of friends
and neighbors.
Paul Gant will be selling his
legendary BBQ dinners, and soft
drinks will be sold by the Band of
Gold Flag Corps.
So make plans now to come
and enjoy the music 'by the
.Monument' in this historic park
Remember to bring lawn chairs
and bug spray so you can sit back
and enjoy the music.
Everyone is welcome to
attend. The Gulf County Tourist
Development Council .helps fund
this event.


Gulf County commissioners
decided it was time to change the
guard during their regular meet-
ing Tuesday evening electing.
Carmen McLemore as chairman
and Jerry Barnes as vice chair.
"When do we normally elect a
new chairman and vice chair?"
asked Commissioner Carl Fox,
during the commissioners' dis-
cussion and business portion of
the meeting.
Chairman Nathan Peters said
discussions last year leaned
toward changing the date to
January (instead of the normal
November time frame) for naming
a new chair and vice chair.
Indeed, the board did discuss
this and had at least a verbal
agreement to wait until January,
because every other year county
elections are coming to a head
just about the time the board
would be electing new officers. As
Chairman Peters pointed out to
Commissioner Fox though, this
policy can be changed any time
three board members decide to do
so. So they did.
Commissioner Fox nominated
Commissioner McLemore, .who
was elected to serve as chairman
beginning with ethe board's next
regular meeting on October 23rd.
The. motion passed 4- 1. with
Commissioner Peters opposing.
-Commissioner Billy Traylor
then moved for Commissioner
Barnes to serve as vice chair, His
motion passed unanimously.
Race Track Noise
Commissioner Traylor opened
up an old, sensitive subject when
he told commissioners and those
present at ,the board's meeting
that it was' time to re-address the
noise issue at Gulf County
Speedway.
Approximately a year ago, the
board dealt with numerous com-
plaints from local residents about
the noise level coming from the
raceway. They eventually worked
out a compromise agreement
where race track owners would
limit practice times and race
hours, thus working around a
direct confrontation between rac-
ers and local residents.
Commissioners Traylor and
McLemore said they have received
complaints from a host of area
residents.
"I live at least nine miles from
the track and I can hear them,"
said Commissioner McLemore. He
also pointed out that the midnight
curfew was not working and the


Comm. Carmen McLemore
board was catching the heat from
folks who live in the vicinity.
New owner, Ben Watkins, told
the board that he purchased the
property as a race track; that is
what it was in the past, and it was
his purpose to make money just
as any other business would.
He also pointed out that lim-
iting hours would not work
because his racers could not race
during the daylight (because of
the sun) and many drivers would
not be able to come and partici-
pate at an earlier hour because of*
travel time and work conflicts.
After much discussiofl, the
board agreed to hold a public
hearing on November 8th at 6:00
p.m. (CT) at the old Gulf County
courthouse In. Wewahitchka to
discuss the issue. Persons inter-
ested in participating in the pub-
lic hearing are urged to attend
and voice their opinion.
In the meantime, there are
four races left on this year's cal-
endar, most of which will have
been run before the public hear-
ing. Commissioners discussed
purchasing or renting equipment
to measure sound levels so data
could be collected prior to the
meeting date.
Pay Raises Questioned
Chairman Nathan Peters, Jr.
questioned Chief Administrator
Don Butler and the board about
,the practice of having Butler
make pay recommendations for
county employees. He particularly
questioned the amount of raise
recommendations given to 9-1-1
Director Marshall Nelson as com-
pared to some other county
employees.


Comm. Jerry Barnes
Peters' major bone of con-
tention seemed to center around
Administrative Assistant Debbe
Wlibberg. He stated that she has
been raised 20% in 1998, 8% in
1999, and 134% in 2000, and was
currently paid over $37,000 per
,year.
"I think some things have,
been done that's not right," Peters.
said.
Butler was obviously floored
by the accusations. He retorted to
the board that he has made all
recommendations for pay raises
in writing to each of 'the board
members anasked asked for board
input prior to any decisions being
made on salaries.
Butler further noted that
administrative positions are not
paid by hourly wages-". do
you pay the person- that works a
40 hour week the same as the one
who works 60 hours?" Butler
asked.
Butler did not have to do
much defending of his actions.
The other board members echoed
support for his actions and stated
that input or complaints concern-
ing county employees' pay could
and should have come out at. the
appropriate time, when they were
recommended or during budget
hearings.
Commissioner Traylor also
pointed out that Butler did not
give himself a raise recommenda-
tion this year and probably makes
$20,000 a year less than most
administrators In surrounding
counties holding the same posi-
tion. Butler's salary is $52,000
per year.

Going To Be Hard



To Forget My 50th

It's going to be rather hard for me to forget my 50th birthday and
probably not for all the reasons you might think.
If you were thinking that's partly because of the numerous times
and ways I was reminded on Sunday, October 7th, I was half a cen-
tury old, you're wrong., After turning 49 last year, there is nothing
that anyone could do to me to one-up that occasion.
Eugene Raffield co-conspired with the entire Star staff to give me
the mother of all birthdays. Imagine if you can (or dare), Keith
"Squint" NLxson in a bright, red dress, long black wig, black hose,
high heels, and make-up (with bright red lipstick in place).
The person who made up that saying-"Beauty is only skin
deep," never saw anything like what I say on my 49th last year. I
think The Star staff even realized that it was impossible to out-do
what had been done in the past, and just let me turn 50 with a lit-
tie bit of peace and dignity : I was looking over my shoulder
for a few days before and after though.
Shoot, I was plum proud to turn 50. Miss Bonnie made'me one
of her famous Italian cream cakes-which I broke my diet rather
severely to. eat. I bragged to members of the Long Avenue Baptist
Church youth department about my age-Kesley had revealed his
true age a few weeks earlier to the group, so I knew they would think
I was just a mere baby.
Our preacher, old Brother John (not the John from the Bible)
announced my age to the entire congregation and even Judge Fred
"Cotton Top" Witten joined in on the fun, talking about our conver-
sation a few weeks ago-when I was much younger
For Sunday dinner, all the Ramsey brothers, sisters, Mama,
Daddy; offspring, and spring-offs of offspring gathered over at sis-
ter Shelley's house to celebrate Mama and Daddy's 55th wedding
anniversary (September 29th) and the birthday month of four of six
brothers and sisters.
Older brother Ray, sister Catherine (Barfield), sister Shelley
(Oliver), and (the younger of the four) me were all born in the month
of October.
Younger brother Alford calls us the "B.C. Kids"-before central
heat-since-we were all conceived around January, '. think about
it!!! .
Younger sister Carol (Horton) kind of had the idea to kill-sever-
al-birds-with-one-cake party and, as fate might have it. the available
day happened to fall on my half-century event rather than on one of
my older brother or sisters less magnanimous already over-the-hill
changing of the dial dates. Of course, there was a little signage
around announcing the changing of my, time dial, but l pretended
not to notice.
Still notA problem by me'. When you're raised in hQiysq0old
with six kids crammed into two bedrooms side by side, teasing,
picking, and poking fun at each other was all part of our daily inter-
action.
Early Sunday morning I got out of bed. made coffee, got the daily
papers, and eased back in my recliner in the living -room.
Granddaughter MaKayla joined me about the time the coffee got
ready, curling up in my lap-to enjoy a nice, slow and enjoyable wak-
ening. Happy birthday. Paw Pawl! Grandson Will proclaimed, as he
ran into the den and jumped in the chair with us dragging a gift
bag with purple paper dangling out the top of it.
"Here's your present," he announced.
"What is it? Purple paper?" I asked.
Sure enough, it was a bag full of purple paper he had grabbed
from the spare bedroom as his extra special gift to his Paw Paw .
and sure enough, it was pretty extra special, too. But, that still is
not the reason my 50th birthday is going to be so hard for me to for-
get.
Shortly after noon on October 7th, 2001, President George W.
Bush announced to'the world that missions were being executed in
Afghahistan against the Taliban and Osama bin Laden.
The freedoms we so dearly love did not come without a price.
Once again, America and her allies are in a battle for our freedoms
against what can only be described as a demon-possessed madman
and his equally deranged followers.;


I peered in pretty close. He
could, if the clock was rolled back
twenty, maybe thirty years; have
looked like Victor Mature. His lips
were turned up slightly at 'each
end. Kind of a permanent srmfile. It


was a strong face: But the Inendli-
ness shone through above all else.
Here was a guy that rrught bluff
you if need be with a gruff exten-
or-but was all heart from the
inside out!
I liked him immediately.
'That's what attracted me to
Riles right off," his wife for over 50
years was filling me in, "he looked
liked Victor, Mature. He was the
most handsome man I'd had ever
seen!" She was just as passionate
and sincere with'the recounting of


their courtship as she was when it
was unfolding in 1950.
What a love story!
"I took him to W\ewa to a fami-
ly reunion before we married."
Miss Marie was just getting wound
up. "1 told my cousins to keep their
hands off my man!" She laughed at
her own boldness. "I had always
said I wasn't going to marry a man
younger than me, but I didn't
count on such a handsome guy
offering to buy. me a coke!" She
laughed again. .


Riles Hill sat quietly at the
opposite end of the kitchen table. I
suspected this wasn't the first time
Miss Marie had entertained with
stories about their courtship.
I wondered if the talk took him
back to his father. On May 10,
1950, Deputy Mose Hill was killed
attempting to make an arrest -in
Highland View. He is footnoted in
Gulf County history as the only
police officer ever to sacrifice his
life for us in the line-of duty. He
was certainly more than a footlete
to this quiet man sitting just to-my
Right! :
"You know, Riles didn't pay for
the coke. It was ten cents. Aind, I
paid for the thing myself." She
roared with laughter over this one.
Mr. Hill chuckled, too. He got the
girl and it didn't cost a dime!
"1 even loved him enough lto
ride that smelly garbage truck .as
he picked up slop for the hogs."-
Hey, we always had a shoat or
two around theL house! I :knew
something about pigs. I turndd'to
Mr. Riles, "How many hogs did you
have?"
"Around two-hundred 'and
fifty.
My goodness! Those things-'eat
like there ain't no tomorrow.-And
they expect and demand two meals
a day. Everyday! You can't turn
'em out to pasture. the neighbors
won't feed 'em for you, the wind
was a big factor on whether or not
you could enjoy the back porch
and vou can't even start to imagine
the clean-up . .
1 took on a whole new respect
for Riles and Marie Hill. Thereuare
easier ways to go through life tian
raising hogs! "
If it had ever crossed their
minds they didn't let on. -
I remembered back years -ago
when the creek got up and a ffock
of snakes migrated toward 'the
barn. Daddy turned our pigs out
in the field. He assured us 'they
would "take care" of the snake
'problem' Ithought he was crazy. I
never saw a pig with a snake!; But
then, the snakes disappeared : I
have pondered over it for years. I
thought of asking Mr. Hill if Dad
could have been right about Pigs
running off snakes ..
Before I could bring it up, Nltiss
Mane was telling us about 'her
brother when they were childi'en.
"I would iron. Howard would plow.
We would get to yelling at each
other. Me, behind the house and
him down in the field. We each
thought we had the harder job. H-e
allowed I was standing still! e
mule was doing all the' work'for
him! Mother got tired of us fusinhg
so she made us change places.,
"I couldn't get the plow inj the
ground. Howard couldn't ironjthe
creases out. In a minute we ibre
both appealing to mother to lei4`s
have our old jobs back!" 0ihe
laughed through the whole story.
I thought of how unnecessary

My How Time Flies When You're Having So Mz


TIME CERTAINLY HAS a
way of slipping by in a 'hurry;
especially if you don't want it too.
It has the opposite effect, if you
do want it to slip on by in a
hurry-sort of like a kid waiting
on Christmas, don't you know.
I didn't especially arrange it
this way; it just happened!
My anniversary just slipped
up on me, and then it was gone
before I knew it! I've been married
for a whole 55 years, 'the end of
last month. It has seemed like it
was just a month 'or two; it went
by so fast.
During this "month or two,"
Frenchie and I have had six chil-
dren. Four of them have birth-
days in this month. That's what
reminded me of our 55.years of
marriage.
I didn't realize 55 years had
passed. It seems like we just
observed our 50th anniversary
last September. It must have been
farther back than that, though,
for all to happen which has hap-


penedl


ONE OF MY KIDS asked how
we managed to have four of them.,
in October?
I just had to reply that it .was
just the luck of the draw.: The
good Lord knew about my lack of
memory-I contracted a touch, of
alzheimer's disease at 'anh early'
age-so he made it easy for me to
remember ';their birthdays by
placing four of'the blessed events
in October.
The baby'was born on Pearl
Harbor Day, to help'me with that
bit of memory, and the sixth-but
not the last-was born in May. I


guess He figured that even I could
remember the birth month of one
maverick.
It hasn t been easy.
Frenchie keeps a small book
containing the birthdays of all
our, relatives and some' frie6ids in
the dresser in. our bedroom.
Luckily, this book also contains
the birth dates of our six kids,
too.
I don't know whether that lit-
tle book. is kept for her own
reminder, or if it' is kept in order
to jog my,failing memory at times.

I CAN REMEMBER things
that happened 40 or 50 years


ago, but, it's, things that hap-'
' opened yesterday or last week that
I have problems with.
That also includes birthdays.
O0h, I remember my birthday and
Frenchie's; but it's all the others
that give, me problems.
I ,have to remember mine,
because I have to repeat it so
often. Why, just this morning, I
.had to give my date of birth and
address to a young lady who was
about to stick: me with a blood-
.drawing needle. I rattled it off just
like I gave it out every day. So,
you see, my memory isn't com-
pletely gone..
Some things I remember, in
spite of 55 years of marriage and
six kids, four of them born in
October, to make it convenient
remembering their birth month.
What brought' all this on, was
my oldest child-a son-celebrat-
ed his birthday on October 4th.
The other three have their birth-
days scattered out during the rest
of the month, but I'm not really


certain which. day belongs to
which child. Only the monthly

I'VE NOTICED, SINCE I have
retired and reached a
respectably nice advanced age .
that my number two
son-Willie-takes advantage of
my advanced ."experience" ;for
telling him things that happened
several years ago.
I'm not as good at it as George
Core, but then there's not as
many of you who are' as old as
George Core who are around, to
correct his slips in memory, like
there are who lived in a time that
can jog mine.
It's sort of disconcerting to be
the living source of history of
things that happened prior to 'the
time your inquisitors were born!
Even ole Kes, with his
remarkable memory of things
gone before and his memory of
dates, doesn't go back too far.
For instance, he doesn't
remember when you could buy a

In the early days, it made it
sort of hard to give them a pre-

and. give them a present on
Christmas, too. First off, in the
early days, I didn't have the
money to be buying four presents
in October, then just having it all
to do over again in December.
Besides, we had to pay the

ber for their services in delivery.
Anyhow, the ensuing 55 years
have been fun, in spite of it alk

Smallwood Makes It 4-In-A-Row


Wins 27th Tapper Invitational Tournament


International Credit



Union Day



October 18,2001



On Thursday, October 18, catch the spirit of over 100 million
credit union members worldwide as we celebrate International
Credit Union Day.


Because credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives,
their focus has always been on service to members. At one
credit union, service may mean refinancing a new member's
car at a lower rate. At another, a member might be taking out
a $400 loan to get through tight times. Credit unions provide
the services members' requests-from student loans to car
loans to first mortgages. No need is too big or too small.


Each member has an equal vote in electing a volunteer board
of directors. Since there are no stockholders, members receive
higher rates on their savings accounts, lower rates on loans,
and lower service fees.


"Catch Our Spirit" on International Credit Union


Day


Thursday, October 18, 2001. We invited you to come by for
refreshments and a gift at one of our locations in Port St. Joe,

(From Page 2)
Dr. Spock really is!
'I also remembered ,days past
when everyone, young and old, lin-
gered around the kitchen table like
this.
The first thing both of them
said to me when I walked into their
house was, "Welcome, make your-
self at home." They spent, a night
and a morning making us feel just
that way!
The house had belonged to
Miss Marie's parents. As a matter
of fact, her ninety year old father,
Papa Curtis, had mowed the grass
the day we arrived. I tell you, there
is something special, permanent,
consistent, lasting about hanging
close to your roots .
And being proud of family! She
filled us in on Uncle Doc Whitfield,
Uncle Early, John Milton, Houston
.... the whole bunch! She knew
all of my Uncle .Ben Whitfield's
people. She remembered Penelope.
"Son, we keep talking and we
are going to wind up kin to each
other."
That would have suited me
just fine.
I tried, to eat the first three bis-
cuits real fast so it wouldn't look
too bad when I reached for the
next two. Talking was only the sec-
ond best thing Miss Marie: could
do! She'd made those pan biscuits .
like God intended folks to eat.
I spied the handwritten sign
thumbtacked to the wall over the
stove that proclaimed, Set a
watch, 0 Lord, before my mouth;
keep the door of my lips. She had
placed it where she would see it
first thing every day. I nodded in
agreement with the notice stuck to
the cabinet door:
Warning! This House
Protected By Jesus Christ.
You live with Mr. Riles and
raise Ed, Carl, Mark and Link and
you are going to need some higher
power close by!
I couldn't believe how the time
flew! What a special house! And a
special treat for me!
I have got to figure a way to get
invited back. I spent several hours
with a professional hog man-and
I forgot to talk chitlins with him. .

Respectfully,
Kes

of undisturbed coastal habitat, notable for its lack of development, attract over 340 species of birds and other wildlife. We invite
you to share a way of life that's largely unchanged since the 1930's and 40's. Here, surprisingly, the tides of history have left

The Festival is based in historic Port St. Joe, Florida. It's just a few miles west of Apalachicola, home of world famous
oysters, a little south of the Tupelo Honey city of Wewahitchka, aid next to the quiet sportfishing town of Mexico
Beach. All are within an easy drive. The Forgotten Coast has only three traffic lights, no movie theaters,
small stores and restaurants, and an assortment of places to stay. Small town friendliness, uncrowded
roads, empty beaches, marshlands and vast upland pine forests will make your birding and wildlife

Williams' recognize that as seniors
age, their healthcare needs
change and while there is an
abundance of nursing homes in
the Florida Panhandle, there are
few options for active elders who
need limited assistance with daily
activities.
To meet these varying needs
of elders, the Williams' are devel-
oping a resort-like retirement
community in Gulf County that
caters to seniors who, are active
and independent but wish to have
ready access to healthcare ser-
vices when needed.
Bill, a Gulf County native,
decided to develop in this area
because of its beauty, slower
pace, friendly people and local
amenities. He also saw this as an
opportunity to contribute to the
economic development of Gulf
County by creating new jobs and
elevating local healthcare ser-
vices. The development of Beacon
Village is scheduled to take place
within four years and will bring
approximately SQ full-time jobs to
the county.
Gulf Countians already bene-
fit from Geri-Care Assisted Living,
as well as the Williams' two out-
patient rehabilitation facilities,
Beacon Hill' Wellness and
Therapy, located on the Beacon
villagee campus, and Coastal
Fitness and Rehabilitation,
located in Port St. Joe.
Both rehabilitation facilities
provide physical, speech and"
occupational therapy services,
industrial medicine, and wellness
programs .to the community at
large. Additionally, physician ser-
vices are provided by,Dr. .Helen
Nitsios of Coastal, Internal
Medicine at the Beacon. Hill
Wellness and Therapy location.,
Beacon Village will offer a
continuum of residential options
for seniors based on their chang-
ing needs as they progress in age,
allowing them to remain in their
community even as their medical
needs and dependence on others
increases. Residents will have 24-
hour access to, on-site medical,


nursing and rehabilitation ser-
vices, general wellness and condi-
tioning programs, social activities,
and dining services.
Beacon Village will be licensed
to provide geriatric day care and
respite programs for the commu-
nity-at-large. These programs give
a sense of freedom to caretakers-
typically the spouse or children of
the senior-while meeting the elder

apartments for elder residents
who need assistance with per-
sonal care. such as bathing and

Two additional assisted living
facilities will also be built at
Beacon Village. A recreational
center with accessible swimming
pool. shuffleboard courts, din-
ing/ballroom, and other enter-
tainment amenities will be built to
promote an active, fit lifestyle and

Port St. Joe Sharks Take


12-10 Homecoming Victory


The Port St. Joe Sharks
scored 12 points in the first
quarter of Friday's game, which
proved to be all the points they
needed to gain their first victory of
the gridiron season. The Sharks
improved to 1-5 on the season
with the 12-10 victory over
Florida High.
"I can't say enough about our
defense," said head coach John
Palmer. '"We had two tough goal
line stands, then continued to
stop them in the second half. Our
kids played real hard."
The Seminoles took the
opening kick-off of the game, and
were forced to punt after being
shut down by the Sharks'
defense. Florida High snapped the
football over the punter's head,
giving the Sharks great field
position deep in Seminole
territory.
Port St. Joe capitalized on the
miscue, and took a 6-0 lead when
Isaiah Jenkins caught a 16 yard
pass from quarterback Chase
Millender with, 8:51 left in the first
quarter. Stephen Gaddis' extra
point attempt was unsuccessful.
After two penalties and a 14
yard loss off a quarterback sack
by Brian Bizek had put the
Seminoles deep in a hole on their
ensuing possession, Corey Butler
recovered a Florida High fumble
on theSeminoles' 15 yard line.
The Sharks wasted little time
capitalizing on another Florida
:High miscue. Turning to their
,aerial attack: again, Chase
Millender connected with Raye
Bailey on the first play from
scrimmage for a 15 'yard
touchdown to give the Sharks. a
12-0 lead with 5:23 remaining in
the first quarter.
Florida High responiided-to' the
7Sharks' second score in quick
fashion,, returning the ensuing
Skick-off to the Port St. Joe 26 yard
line. Three plays later, Lionell
Singleton closed the gap to 12-7
with 4:09 remaining in the first
quarter on a 15 yard touchdown

run. I
Florida High threatened to
steal away the Sharks' first
victory late in the game. The
Seminoles drove down to the Port
St. Joe one yard line, following an
inter-ception. The Seminoles were
backed up by an offsides penalty,
and the Shark defense forced
Florida High to kick a 25 yard
field goal. This narrowed Port St.
Joe's lead to 12-10 with 2:51 left'
in the third quarter.
Raye Bailey picked off a
Florida High pass and returned it
to the Seminole six yard line in
the fourth quarter. But Florida
'High returned the favor on the
Sharks' first play, intercepting the
ball in the end zone and returning
it to the Seminole 41 yard line.
With :26 seconds remaining
in the game, Florida High
appeared to have stolen the
Sharks' "Homecoming" victory
again- with a 64 yard touchdown
catch and run. However. the
Seminoles were flagged for
clipping during the run, and Port
St. Joe held, on for the win.
Quarterback Chase Millender


completed seven of his 12 pass
attempts for 68 yards with two
touchdown passes and two
interceptions. Isaiah Jenkins also
tossed three incomplete passes.
Jenkins had six receptions for
53 yards and a touchdown; while
Raye Bailey had a 15 yard
touchdown catch.
Brad Ray led the Shark
ground game with 36 yards
rushing on 12 carries.
Nick Reynolds led the defense
with five solos and 12 assists (17
total tackles); John Patrick Floyd
had two solos and eight assists
(10); Corey Butler had one solos,
eight assists (9), two tackles for a
loss and recovered a fumble; Raye
Bailey had three solos, five assists
(8), one interception and broke up
three passes; Brad Ray had three
solos, five assists (8) with two
tackles for a loss.
The Sharks travel to

Jaguars March
Over Eagles
The undefeated PSJ 'Jaguars
continued orn their march toward
the Super Bowl with a hard-
fought win over, Eastpoint. The
game was a scoreless tie with
three minutes and 27 seconds left
in the first half. Then, Victor
Quintanilla laid a vicious hit on
an Eagle halfback, knocking the
ball loose. Javiun Langston
scooped up the ball at the thirty
and ran it .in for the game's first
score. He then went up the middle
for the PAT. On the Eagles' next
possession Kendall Hogan inter-
cepted. a pass at the fifty and,
after breaking a tackle at the
twenty, was finally driven out of
bounds at the five. Two plays later
Langston went up the middle for
the TD. Eckley Sander went
around left end for the PAT.
The second half opened with
the PSJ defense- continuing to
shut down the Eagles' offense,
forcing them to punt. Darrell
Smith took the kick at the forty
and returned it to the twelve.
Langston took it in from there.
Then; at the end of a long drive
Sander scored on a fifteen-yard
run, breaking three tackles on the
way. The Eagles finally scored in
trash time on a nice pass play.
The scoring ended with the
Jaguars' final TD as Smith took it.
in from ten yards out.
The Jaguar defense played its
best game of the year. The down,
line of. Tan Smilev, Brandon
Strickland. Dylan Jackson and
Krystian Kelley was constantly inr
the Eagle backfield. Linebackers
Sander and Langston were all
over the field making tackles and
raising havoc with the Eagle
offense. Defensive ends Quinta-
nilla and Chase Watford did an
excellent job containing the Eagle
sweeps.

The mouth is the most vulnera-

body during sports activity. Of 1,300
school-aged kids studied in
Connecticut, about 25% had chips,
cracks or fractures in their front
teeth, most of them sports related.
Participants in contact sports
like football and hockey have long
realized the benefits of using mouth
and faceguards to protect them-
selves against such injuries.

Protect Teeth

From Sports


Injury

Before these guards were man-,
dated for high school and college
teams in the 1960s, 50% of football'
injuries were to the mouth area. By.
the early 1980s, this protection was
responsible for dropping the injury
rate to less than 1%-a dramatic'
result. One need only look at the'
"dings" in a professional goalie's
facemask to realize its benefits.
The routine use of mouth-
guards made of a resilient plastic-
that fits over the teeth is one of the.
most effective ways of reducing
injury to the teeth and lips. Don't
leave the bench without one.

Zebe Schmitt Delivers a Message of Hope


Demorest, GA-Zebe Schmitt's
will to persevere is stronger than
the metal brace she wears on one
leg, a result of infantile paralysis
contracted at age five.
It is that determination that
has helped her walk through a
myriad. of personal struggles,
including the deaths of her first
husband and one of her children,


Zebe addresses meeting.


two bouts with breast cancer and
periodic sickness associated with
polio.
She shared her story of
strength and hope as the keynote
speaker during the annual man-
agement meeting of Community
Newspapers Inc. (CNI). The meet-
ing was held September 21 and
22 in Demorest and Cornelia,
Georgia. Schmitt and CNI
President Dink NeSmith were
childhood friends in their home-
town of Jesup, Georgia. NeSmith
invited his friend to tell her inspir-
ing story and to illustrate how her
life had been chronicled in her
hometown newspaper-the joys
and sorrows.
During his introduction,
NeSmith projected a description
of Schmitt on a large screen. It
read: Grit (noun) 1. Rough, hard
particles of sand, stone, etc. 2.
Stubborn, courage, brave, perse-
verance; pluck. 3. To clinch or
grind (the teeth) in anger or deter-1
mination. Synonym-see Forti-
tude. Example-see Zebe.

make great newspapers."
Making great communities
has been her goal, she said. A
great community rallied around
her family in August 1948 when
she was diagnosed with polio. The
ambulance with Schmitt, and her
mother started to leave Jesup for.
Savannah that summer day. 'The
news spread quickly," she said.
"The little Yeomans girl had.polio.
Merchants left their stores, com-
ing to gather 'round our family.
Aunt Una, other people called her
Dr. Una, gave me a baby bottle of
chocolate milk, hoping that I
would be ablq to keep swallowing,
and Uncle Woodrow, other people
called him .Dr. Yeomans, kept
telling me he would see me tomor-
row and would draw me another
picture.
"And Skeet Daniel, who'
,owned the Firestone store,
brought a little pink sleepy doll for
me to have. No one knew how
many times in years to come that
little sleepy doll would travel with
me from one hospital to another
or how many times I would reach
for that doll trying to remember
the faces and feel the warmth of
those people who had come that
day, gathering around the ambu-
lance to say 'God speed' as we
began a different kind of journey."
Her different kind of journey
led her into education and later in
serving as an advocate for persons.
with disabilities.
"When I learned to, walk," she
said, "they put it in the paper. My
community rallied being me. We
have a rally every week when the
newspaper comes out."
By the time Schmitt gradu-
ated from high school, she had
endured seven operations and"
spent numerous summers' at
Warm Spnngs rehabilitation cen-
ter in west Georgia. Throughout
school, her classmates tried to
ease her self-consciousness and
lovingly nicknamed her Chester,
after TVs 'Gunsmoke" character.-


On graduation day, she stepped
onto the football field in high-heel
shoes with her braces attached.
She was apprehensive about the
walk. She soon realized her entire
class was limping onto the field, a
gesture to 'make her feel more
secure.
She has spent her years in
service to her family, to help chil-


!


dren stand on their own two feet
in life, to assist the disabled' and
to make sure the sea turtles on
Port St. Joe Beach have a clean
environment. On a recent beach
cleanup, her husband, Jack,
invited a neighbor child, Gabrielle
Hendry, to join him in the effort.


Afterward, he asked Zebe if leav-
ing the plastic bags on the beach
would kill the turtles if they swal-
lowed them. She said they would.
The next day, she called
Gabrielle's house. His mother told
Zebe he was out on the beach
picking up trash. "Those children
are going to learn it's their beach,
too, their world, too," Schmitt

said. "Life is such a gift-it's such a
gift," she said. "Living means
touching other people-touching
their lives, touching their souls. I
learned that from my parents and
the people in Jesup. I am what I
am because of those people in
that town."

donation towards additional
books last spring. They also rec-
ognized the, top male and female

of the school year. The best part is
that they have expressed the will-

goal of this program is to develop
independent lifelong readers. By
utilizing the recorded books, stu-

Reading is a necessary skill
for success in school, and more
importantly, in life. Port St. Joe
Middle School recognizes this by
urging its students to read at
every opportunity. A reading class
is paft of each student's schedule,
and the Accelerated Reading pro-
gram is a powerful component of
the reading class. Students were
given several assessment tests at
the beginning of the school year to
determine their reading level,
Goals were then set based on each
student's abilities. Part of a stu-
dent's reading grade is based on
how well he or she meets these
goals.
As a -chool, we will be recog-
nizing students who meet their.
comprehension and point goals
with treats at lunch for each grad-
ing.period. Additional recognition
will. occur at the end of'each
semester. In addition to these
individual goals, students are also
working toward a school goal of
3,000 books. They 'are currently
brainstorming. about what they
would like to have the reading
teldhers do when they reach this
goal. Last year, Mrs. Wit ten put on
a Bntney Spears performance,
This year, who knows?
One can never have enough
books. Both the school staff and
the. community realize and sup-
port the need for interesting read-
ing maternal. Two years ago, the


that goal. The list of Accelerated
Reader tests that are available at
Port St. Joe Middle School can be
viewed on the web at:
www Gulf.Kl2.fl.us. Show your
child that reading is important by
modeling the habit yourself.
Together we can work towards
establishing the habit of reading
in our children-an important step
towards becoming successful cii -
zens.

The competition at Port St. Joe
High School has kicked into full
effect during the past few weeks.
Some of the senior girls recently
participated in the Junior Miss
pageant. Last week students were
preoccupied with homecoming
contests, such as decorating the
doors, building the floats, winning
the game; and anxiously anticipat-
ing the announcement of
Homecoming queen.
Junior Miss gave opportuni-
ties'for senior girls with a GPA of
3.2 or higher to compete and win
scholarships. This is the first time
the Junior Miss has been held
since the 1996-97 school year. The
pageant was based 25% on judges'
interview, 25% on talent, 20% on
scholastic achievement, 15%/o on
fitness, and 15% on poise and
composure. The 2001-2002 win-
ner of the Junior Miss was Lisa
Curry. First runner-up was
Lindsey,-Carter, second runner-up
was Maclain Howse, third runner-
up was Cerrelle Hanes, fourth
runner-up was Rachel Geoghagan,
and the Spirit of Junior Miss was
awarded to Mary : Amerson.
Congratulations, girls!
All last week school spirit weas
seen throughout the halls while
students were decorating their
classroom doors. The students
canmrup with many creative ideas
