Port St. 'Joe city commission-
ers finalized and approved an
ordinance which defines sexually
oriented businesses and address-
es related subjects pertaining to
restrictions and limitations of
locations of those businesses in
the city.
Ordinance #283 Adult
Entertainment Ordinance basi-
cally limits adult entertainment
businesses to industrially zoned
areas within the city. The only
industrial zone in the city is locat-
ed in the corridor extending along
the Industrial Road, off Highway
98 west of town, and the old mill
site property.
The ordinance also adds addi-
tional restrictions by stating that
adult entertainment businesses
can't located within 250 feet of a
major highway-including High-
way 98 and Industrial Road.


Furthermore, they can't locate
within 250 feet of a tourist corri-
dor (that 'includes waterways, bay
and gulf)' nor within 1,000 feet of
churches, schools, residences,
and business corridors.
The board has also asked
Board Attorney Russell Scholz to
add restrictions to the city's ,alco-
holic beverage ordinance that
would preclude exotic dancing in
business locations where alco-
holic beverages are sold. This
amendrient to a city ordinance
will be advertised once the board
has agreed to wording.
City commissioners have
been unanimous in their efforts to
establish guidelines on sexually
oriented businesses prior to the
question becoming an issue. An
ordinance is now in place should
the matter come up in the future..

Mill Testing :Underway

DEP, EPA, and Consultants Busy Doing Work


Consultants representing
',nSurflt-Stone Container-and. the
St. Joe Company, along with
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) and Environ-
mental Protection Agency (EPA)
representatives, started work
Tuesday on environmental testing
of the paper mill site and old St.
Joe impoundment area.
The two property owners have
sought and received approval
from DEP to fund testing at the
old mill site under the watchful
dyes of the agency. Both property.
owners were required to hire inde-
pendent DEP approved consul-
tants to conduct the tests and
environmental evaluations of the
site.
The consultants and environ-
mental agency representatives
spent Tuesday marking the vari-
ous testing sites agreed to in the
approved environmental review
plan. Five sites were marked as
.areas where test wells will be
drilled on'the mill site. Another
four wells will be drilled on St. Joe
Company property adjacent to the
,mill site that was formerly used
as a holding area.
Soil samples will be collected


off the St. Joe property. as well as
sediment samplings of three areas .
in St. Joseph Bay. just offshore
from the mill property. One will be.
taken from just behind the rmll
site, another offshore from the
former impoundment area, and a
final sample farther north (toward
the Gulf County Canal) from the
impoundment area.,
Actual drilling of the wells got
underway Wednesday and all test
wells are expected to be complet-
ed by the end of the week. Work,
on the wells will begin at the mill
site, and five wells are expected to
be completed on Thursday. The
wells at the old St. Joe impound-
ment area are expected to then
take an additional day to drill.
The actual samples from the
wells will not be taken until the
first .of next'week. Samples will be
drawn and split samplings of the
water will be taken. Both DEP and
the' environmental consultants
will take portions of the same
identical samples and will Inde-
pendently evaluate and .analyze at
separate testing facilities, then
the two results will be shared and
compared.
The environmental firms of
Malcolm Pimie and PSI have been


approved by DEP to conduct the
.testing.on behalf of2Smurfit-Stone .
Container and the St. Joe
Company.

Members of the Constitution
City Business Association are
planning their annual "Halloween
on Reid" costume contest and
trick-or-treat activities for
Tuesday evening. October 30th.
The event is being planned on

with Wednesday evening church
services in the area's conmmuni-
ties. '
Members of the Jr. Service
League will be judging the annual
costume contest from 6:00 to 7:00
p.m. with prizes being awarded in
three different age categories-
tots to six years, seven to nine
years, and 10 to 12 years.

out .treats until 7:00.

Wewa Council Looks

At Employee Benefits
Wewahitchka city commis-
sioners spent most of their last
meeting discussing issues that
impact city employees.
The board unanimously voted
to give a 154 per hour pay
increase to all city employees and
approved a change to the city
retirement program that allows
city employees to make contribu-
tions.
Employees' retirement is
through the Florida Municipal
Trust Pension Plan. At present,
the city contributes 5% of a city
employee's pay to the retirement
fund. After the board's actions,
employees are able to make con-
tributions to the plan themselves
In addition to the money paid in
by the city, if they so desire.
The board tabled discussions
on employees', health and dental
insurance 'for further considera-
tion during a future board meet-
ing. The group insurance policy
with the city, as with most other
groups, had a significant increase
in premium cost in .this year's
budget.


The range light which was
located landward of the Beacon
Hill Lighthouse for over 50 years
found its way back home last
week.
Members of the U, S. Coast
Guard hand delivered the Beacon
Hill range light to members of the
St. Joseph Historical Society dur-


The inside of the Beacon Hill
range light has been converted
to electric lights (rather than
the original oil system)..
ing briel ceremonies last
Thursday at -the Gulf County


Library.
Danny Raffield gave a bnel
history of the old light explaining
that it was commissioned about
1902 and was decommissioned
and removed from the range light
location at Beacon Hill around
1959 or 1960.
Danny said the light was used
by boats to navigate when piloting
into St. Joseph Bay in the natu-
rally deep channel of the bay. The
Cape Sanr Bias lighthouse was
also used to help triangulate loca-
tions when following the channel.
Coast Guard Chief Justice
told historical society members
that he was glad the local history
was being returned to the area.
Raffield' and fellow historical
society president Charlotte Pierce
expressed their gratitude to the
Coast Guard representatives for
helping to make the project a real-
'ity.
Raffield said. "One day I hope
to, see this history visible at the
,old range lighthouse and Beacon
Hill Lighthouse site."
The light will remain on dis-
play as a historical marker at the
library. Gulf County has agreed to
build a see-through case and dis-
play area for the light. ,


Little remains of this garbage can set ablaze at Port St. Joe
Elementary School Monday.


Two Juveniles Charged With

:Arson At P.S.J. Elementary


Two juveniles, ages nine and
10, were taken into 'custody and
charged with arson after numer-
ous fires were set at 'the Port St.
Joe Elementary School complex
and the high school football stadi-
um.
According to an incident
report released by the Port St. Joe
Police Department, officers were


called to the Port St. Joe High'
School football stadium after
- receiving reports of a fire in the
area Monday afternoon.
Officer Yowell responded to
the scene and was attempting to
extinguish the fire at the stadium
when an elementary .school-
(See FIRE on Page 12A)


Donnie Harcus, of White City,
found more than he ever imagined
he would ,as he was driving
through his club's hunting lease
area Monday morning. Harcus
spotted a large number of turkey
vultures just off Road 20, near
fire break 53, and decided to
'check out the reason for the birds
gathering. He believed that an
animal had probably died in the
area.
When he walked into the
wooded area, he discovered a
badly decomposed body.
According to the Gulf ..County
Sheriffs Office report, the body
was in an advanced state of
decomposition, so it was difficult
to tell the race or sex of the victim.
The Medical Examiner's
Office and the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement (FDLE)
Mobile Crime Lab were called to
the scene to investigate and
process the evidence.
Investigators thought the
body was like a Bay County man,
Michael Keith Sessions (29), who
disappeared from a Parker motel
room last week. Sessions was last
seen on Tuesday, October 9th,
reportedly going into Room #7 at


the Parker Inn.
Police later discovered signs
of violence in the room, but had
been unable to locate Sessions, or
Christina Cleveland (26) and
David Nolan .(32), two suspects ;in
the case. Cleveland and Nolan are
wanted for questioning and were
reportedly seen driving Sessions'
Infinity Q-45 in Apalachicola last
Thursday.
Investigators from Parker and
the Bay County Sheriffs Office
also came to 'the scene to partici-
pate in the investigation. An
autopsy was conducted Tuesday
morning and has verified through
fingerprints that .the body was
Sessions.
Harcus told investigators that
the gate to the hunting lease had
been torn down. last Thursday
and a vehicle had entered the
area. .He saw the vultures and
located the body approximately
100 feet from the road around
10:45 Monday morning.
Anyone with information that
might assist law enforcement
agencies in breaking the case is
asked to call the Gulf County
Sheriffs Office at 227-1115.

Discovering


A New Season

Over a year ago planning started for a birding weekend to
be hosted in Gulf County. Those plans grew and expanded
into the first annual Birding and Wildflower Festival which
was hosted in Gulf County, but featured sighting locations in
Bay, Franklin and Gulf counties.
Even the most optimistic minds were cautious as they
made predictions as to how this event might be received by
birders and wildlife viewers. After all, this is 'Northwest Flori-
da and the summer season is behind us. The traditional
tourist season has wound down-or maybe we should say
"cooled off" as cooler temperatures begin replacing the sum-
mer heat.
When Marie Steele-Romanelli and members of the St. Joe
Wildlife Sanctuary and Education Center start talking about
bird watchers, a lot of folks around here wondered why any-
one would travel here to watch all those birds we have flying
around.
I guess it's easy to take some of the natural beauty we '
have been so blessed with for granted. Not only did people
come to watch those birds, but they came from as far away as
Canada to view them and see wildflowers.
It is kind of humorous how we perceive things. Here
writes a man who has three bird feeders in his back yard and'
regularly spends. several hours in solitude just watching
wildlife-much of which are various bird species.
I also like to take pictures of the outdoors; and one of the
biggest challenges is to catch Mother Nature's critters in the
lens of the camera.
Why would I ever question whether an event that I obvi-
ously love doing myself would be a success? We have, some-
thing special in our area of the Panhandle, and it has been
discovered.
I've thrown that title hung on this area "The Forgotten
Coast" in the garbage can. There is nothing forgotten about
what we have here. Maybe we need to look at a new name .
something like "Florida's Hidden Treasure."
Our amenities are fabulous, but maybe the biggest new
development that comes with the Birding and Wildflower Fes-
tival is the thought of taking'us to this whole new dimension "
. reminds me of that old television show, "The. Twilight
Zone." That series always focused on seeing things that go
beyond what we normally perceive.
The organizers of this-event hit the nail right on the head
S.. maybe even a little better than they thought. Marie was
very optimistic that this first event would be a hit, but she
was all smiles as we spoke about the turnout for the event.
Over 250 viewers participated in this first-ever event, and
based upon some of the comments they shared, our area can
look forward to many similar events in the days, weeks, and
years to come.
One of the viewers shared with Marie how they had seen
one of the most magnificent spectacles they could ever have
imagined, while traveling on one of the many viewing tours.
The group was able to see a pair of eagles mating. This might
not sound like much, but did you know this aerial spectacu-
lar takes place while the birds are in flight. Needless to say.it
must be a little breath-taking for the big birds to take care of
business and regain their composure before falling all the
way to the ground.
I don't know if this 1st Annual Birding and Wildflower
Festival was quite that spectacular of an event .. but maybe
it was pretty close.

"I'd like to see Winston placing
that pail under olp Betsy about six
in the morning in the middle of
December," I chuckled to myself.
There was nothing in the world like
hopping out of bed on a sub zero
morning, struggling into an ice
cold pair of extra stiff Tuf-Nut
jeans and stumbling through,-the
numbing- chill of the pre-dawn
darkness hunting for the barn.
The pall was way past frigid and
the old cow didn't want to give you
any milk on a good day!
Betsy would let me just about
finish before she stuck her left
,hind foot right slap dab- into the
bucket! Milk would fly everywhere.
Not exactly the way one would
choose to start the day ....
"Do you reckon Winston. h~as

There was a definite distinc-
tion between us and the uptown

I liked where I was-most; of

think of living in town. Houses

the truck could be there in three
minutes.

or the signs of the Zodiac. If :my

the matter, they -never shared
them with me. I looked down atimy
hands. Ricky. Gene might be right.

Feathered Friends of All Sorts Are Scattered About


THE BIRDING AND Wild-
flower Festival of last weekend
didn't catch me unawares, total-
ly. I was right in the middle of it,
of sorts, even though I wasn't
present for the main event.
Hundreds of people were pre-
sent in Port St. Joe especially to
attend the festivities and peep
into the lives of wild birds, their
feeding.habits, nesting, etc.
I watched all of that and
spent some time .looking for
doves to shoot AT, but not neces-
sarily kill. I went the first day of
the season, on a corn field up
near Wewahitchka, and saw a
whole of a half dozen birds all
afternoon long.
It was a typical first day of
the season!
But, at least, I went and.
exposed myself. I rubbed all the
mildew off my shotgun, even
though I never fired a shot!,
I've been seeing doves in my
yard right regular. I should have
-hunted them from my front


porch! I would have seen more
than I did in that corn field.

MY YARD IS WHERE I
attended the birding festival-
binoculars and all!
I specialize in hummingbirds,
attracted by my hummingbird
feeder and my satsuma tree. The
hummingbirds feed from the
feeder and fly the 10 feet to the
satsuma tree in order to rest a
spell.
I've had as many as five feed-
ing at one time. Believe it or not,
humming birds do rest-occa-
sionally.
The birds don't only partake


of the nectar in my feeder, they
also feed off the shrimp plants
growing in the back yard. Quite
often I view birds feeding on the
shrimp plant which is growing
right outside my bathroom, win-
dow.
I could watch hummingbirds
feed for hours at a time. They're
busy little bees! They don't feed
at any one spot for more than a
second or two, before they move
to another blossom or station on
the feeder. They're never still for
more than a minute.

I FIRST BECAME attracted
to hummingbirds while visiting


my brother-in-law at, his cattle
farm'up in Georgia.
He kept two feeders busy all
day .long with visiting birds. He
even had to replenish the supply
of nectar two or three times dur-
ing the day. The hummingbirds
just swarmed around his feeders
and I was just mesmerized
watching the activity.
I had to have me a feeder, so
I got one when I returned home
and have had hummingbirds ever
since. It took a while for the birds-
to find the feeder, but when they
did, they kept it busy
They're quick little buggars,
too. Even my outside cat can't
catch and eat one!. And, he does
try, every once in a while.

I -DON'T JUST WATCH hum-
migbirds. There are plenty of oth-
ers to watch and marvel at their
antics.
For instance, there are sever-
al mockingbirds which have nest-
ed all over the yard in various


shrubs; They pretty well rule the
roost, but not exclusively.
All types of birds visit our
yard, regularly. There are blue
jays which just love to play in the
bird bath or a puddle of water left
by a hose which hasn't been
turned off completely. They enjoy
it so much that Frenchie will
leave the faucets in the yard drip-
ping, on occasion, just to give
them a puddle of water to play in.
There are woodpeckers which
visit the trees in our back yard,
pecking holes to get at insects or
hide a morsel of food they have
found. When I used to feed squir-
rels, they would steal the
peanuts and fly to an adjoining
tree, esconching them urder a
piece of bark or pound a hole in a
fork of two limbs.
And the grackles and spar-
rows and field larks, all come
regularly.
A subdivision of ab6ut four or
five bluebird houses attract all
sorts of birds and squirrels .


. to make their homes inside.
Even an occasional bluebird, will
show up to becofne a tenant.
The jays and redbirds are all
itinerants and don't come to stay.

I EVEN HAD A BRACE of
quail, earlier this year. It's the
first quail I have sben in a few
years. A few years ago, I used to
hear them calling to each other
right regularly. Then, for three or
four years, I didn't hear them
anymore.
This spring and summer, I
began to hear them again and
even witnessed a pair, feeding in
my back yard.
There's something about a
quail feeding which is eye-catch-
ing to me. They used to come in
the yard ,and bring their babies
* with them, scratching and peck-
ing.
Do you suppose the terrapin,
which lives in the back yard,
scared them off?

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 invite you to come by for
refreshments and a gift at one of our locations in Port St. Joe,
Mexico Beach or Wewahitchka.

One thing is for certain-the

Over 250 birding and wild-

over the weekend to participate in
the 1st Annual Birding and

"It was an overwhelming suc-

described "as just incredible."
Birding and wildflower viewers
came from as far away as Canada
to participate in this 1st annual

that the second event is being

For example, Marie shared
that one viewer was ecstatic as he
relived the aerial spectacular of
two eagles mating in mid-air. An
event that was viewed on one of
the many tours that involved Gulf,
Bay and Franklin counties over
the weekend.
Another individual from
Michigan could not believe how
another eagle seemed to be posing
on its nest when sighted by the
group in the Lake Wimico area.
Magnificent frigates, were a
first for many, of the visiting view-
ers. RCW woodpeckers, while on
the federal endangered list, were
plentiful in the viewing site visited
off Highway 22, west of
Wewahitchka.
Peregrine falcons, plovers,
pipers, and numerous other wad-
ing birds, ducks, and birds of prey
were spotted over the weekend--
many of which are either endan-
gered or protected species.
High winds interfered with the
annual migration patterns of some
species, especially hawks, but
there were still plenty of local birds
to be spotted. Migrating birds gen-
erally will light and wait for weath-
er events to pass through, rather
than expend the energies needed
to fly through the high winds.
Marie said several of the visit-
ing birders decided to stay over a
few extra days so that they cold
pick up the migrating birds after
the weather cleared.
WILDFLOWERS WERE PROFUSE


Mid-October turned out to be
the perfect time to view wildflow-
ers. "They cooperated 100%,"
Marie said.
As it turns out, recent rains
helped put wildflowers in full
bloom and color for the festival.
Brian Martin, Natural Resources
specialist with Garlick Environ-
mental, Franklin County, hosted
tours through the new wildlife
sanctuary located just north of
Port St. Joe. He pointed out many
of the wildflowers and plant fami-
lies that are located in this area
and explained peculiarities of most
of them.
Similar tours were also held in
other sites throughout the viewing
area. Sandhill scrub oaks, esti-
mated to be, 85 years old, yet
dwarfed because of the sandy soil
conditions at the sanctuary. site,
were among the plant and tree
families that were spotted.
"This was a great beginning."

Jaguars Earn Trip to Super Bowl


For the third year in a row the
PSJ Jaguars will be meeting the
Apalach Tiny Sharkslin the Super
Bowl. They earned the honor by
winning their last twp games, 35
to:6 over the Carrabelle Panthers
and 25 to 0 over the PSJ
Dolphins.
The win over Carrabelle was-


n't as easy as the score indicated.
Carrabelle played tough in the
first half. PSJ scored first on an
18-yard run by Darrell Smith.
Eckley Sander ran in the PAT.
Smith ran 12 yards for another
score but the TD was cancelled by
a holding call on the Jags. Two
plays later he went off-tackle and


into the end zone from 24 yards
out. Javiun Langston scored the
PAT. Then, on the last play of the
half, the Carrabelle quarterback
went 73 yards on a quarterback
sneak for the Panthers' only
score.
In the second half,t' the
Jaguars totally dominated. Smnitl


ran 41 yards for one TD, then 33
yards for another. Sander scored
from 34 yards out on a beautiful
run, breaking three tackles on the
way. A two-point conversion was
successful when quarterback
Langston passed to left end, Tan
Smiley.
Against the Dolphins, the


Jaguars scored on their first pos-
session when Sander took the ball
around the left side, made a great
fake and cut, then went 15 yards
for the TD. Langston scored the
TPAT. In the second quarter, Smith
went around the right end, broke
'two Dolphins' tackles and went fri
for another six points. The second
half was more of the same. Smith
went 40 yards for one TD, and
Sander went 47 yards for another.
The Dolphins' passing game


came to life in the second half but
each time they began to move the
ball Jaguar defenders came up
with big plays. Corner backs John
Tiller and Kendall Hogan both
made great open field tackles.
Outstanding line play from
Smiley, Brandon Strickland,
Javon Davis and Dylan Jackson
resulted in tackles in the Dolphin
backfield. The Jag running backs
were sprung for big gains by

In Memory of Johnny
"Be-Good" Scheffer
My wife and I were privileged
enough to meet Johnny nearly a
Year ago. We were working at a
power plant in Indiantown,
Florida when Johnny Scheffer
(BKA Johnny Be-Good) hired in
with Tom and Stephanie Humph-
rey, Brady Jordan, Steve Craft,
and Ernest "Flossie" Lowery.
What a crew! They had been on
the job about 2 hours when
Johnny came up to the office and
said, "Critter, I'm sorry, but I just
backed your truck into a forklift
and dented your tailgate. If you
want to fire me, I'll get my tools
and go." I said "No, it's not that
bad, just go on back to work."
Well, the very next day he was
fueling up equipment and filled
the hydraulic fluid tank on the
crane with diesel fuel by mistake.
He said, "Well, Critter, this time I
know you are going to run me off."
I told him jokingly, "No, brother,
we'll just keep trying till we find
something you can do." Well I'm
glad I did because he turned out
to, be a darn good worker and
more importantly, a darn good
friend! We were working 7 days a
week, 12-hour, days, under pres-
sure, hot, dirty conditions, and
that's where his best qualities (I
think) came in. He helped to keep
the whole crew laughing and in
good spirits through some very
stressful times. That makes all
the difference in the world on a
job like that! Since then we have
gotten together several times and
each Lime was a good time. Now I
know where the name Be-Good
came from. The other night I tried
to remember a time that Johnny
,.as not smiling: I could notl His
smile (or grin) was contagious, as
was his good mood. This world
needs more Johnny Be-Goods in
it. Each and every one of us has
some Be-Good in us and in these
troubled times we need to let it
out. Life is good. I encourage
every person that reads this to
lighten up. have fun. and never
forget Johnny Be-Good. Whether
you knew him forever, a short
while like we did. or not at all.
John & Charlotte Critten
P.S. The tailgate is now on his
best friend "Hump's" truck and
the dent will never be fL\ed!

In Memory of Clara Asbelle

Come With Me
God saw that she was getting tired
And a cure was not to be.
So he put His arm around her
And whispered, "Come with me."
With tearful eyes we watched
'her suffer'
And sah her fade awa
Although we loved her dearly
We could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard.working hands to rest;
God broke our hearts to
prove to us
He only takes the best.

defense played extremely well,".

have been the best game we
played all year."

Bulldog territory on their first two
offensive possessions, but came
away empty handed each time,.

reeled off a 10 yard run. Then
Harold Williams picked up nine
yards-a 15 yard personal foul
penalty against the Bulldogs was
tact on the end of the run. moving
the Gators down to the Liberty
County 31 yard line. Alter three


incompletions, Wewahitchka con-
verted on fourth and 10 with a 12
yard pass from Jones to Derrick
Williams. /Two plays later, Jones
capped off the drive with a 15
yard touchdown run on a option
play with 6:21 left in the first half

on their own 15 yard line with a
45 yard punt from Brandon Jones
to start the fourth quarter- the

down of the game. Ryan Baker

eepting a pass and returning it 17
yards for the score. The Gators
added the t-wo point- conversion
_wtth a three yard pass from Jones
to Dernck Williams, taking a 21 -0
lead with 11:35 remaining in the .
.game.

good stands against a good
Liberty County football team. It
was nice to see all of the fans at
the game- we had as many or
more fans as Liberty County."

for all of us and the answers will.
not be easy.
As we work through this diffi-
cult but necessary process we will
do so with the understanding that
each area of government must be
carefully looked at and must con-
sider how any decision that is
made will impact our citizens.
During this session, the
Legislature will work to complete
four important tasks: 1) The law-
ful obligation to the people of
Florida to balance our budget, 2)
Pursuing many strategies to stim-
ulate the economy, 3) Addressing
the costs associated with increas-
ing the security of our state
against future acts to terrorism,
and 4) Developing a list of possible
budget cuts.
Many state workers, are con-
cerned their 2.5 percent raise
approved for this year may be
eliminated during the special ses-
sion. As Governor Bush has said,
and I strongly agree, every effort
will be made to protect those
raises from being cut. If we are to
keep the highly trained and val-
ued employees working in state
government, we must provide the
financial incentives to keep them
from leaving, for jobs in other
states or in private business.
Other areas that need to. be
carefully looked at before any
budget cuts are implemented are
education, healthcare services-
including addressing the nursing
shortage, and'programs that pro-
tect our most vulnerable, the very.
young and our elderly .
Yet, while we are facing a


* short-term revenue challenge,
there are many things Florida and
particularly District 7 have going
for them. To start, Florida leads
the nation in job creation and has
one of the lowest unemployment
rates. Our real estate market is
strong and we have one of the low-
est mortgage rates in 20 years. In
addition, we have a diverse eco-
nomic base and a good business
climate.
Although statewide tourism is,
down, in, Ft. Walton Beach and
Panama City, for example, esti-
mate they will still see a small
growth in tourism of nearly 1.5
percent, which means their
economies will remain strong and
jobs secured. Also, airline traffic
is slowly beginning to come back
to the level it was before the
September 11, 2001 terrorism
attack. And the possibility of
adding more road, projects is'
being lookedI at by the Depart-,
ment of Transportation as a way,
of creating more jobs and busi-
ness opportunities.
The, days ahead of us are'
going to be difficult and the deci-
sions we make will be hard ones.
Unfortunately, there will be some
cuts in the state budget. However,,
we do have the ability to. turn this'
budget deficit into certain eco-,
nomic opportunities. By support-.
ing continued economic
development, encouraging tour-
ists to return to Florida, and, by
doing what we can to support our
local economies, this can and will
be an opportunity for us to .come
out of this stronger and more
secure.

30 minutes until he moved on.
Fascinating There were other
shorebirds around, but no one
seemed to notice that he had an
abundance of food beneath his
feet.
The snowy is a member of the
heron family, Ardeidae from the
Latin word ardea meaning heron.
This group includes egrets (from
aigrettes-long plummage), herons
and bitterns with 63 known
species that live on our earth.
This list includes those more com-
monly seen around our area:
snowy egrets, great blue herons,
little blues, tri-colored herons,
great white heron (which is the
white phase of the blue), cattle
egrets,, Louisiana herons, reddish
egrets. American bitterns, least
bitterns, yellow-crowned night
heron, .green heron and black-
crowned night heron. The herons
and egrets can be found mostly by
the waterside of lakes. ponds,
rivers, oceans, bays, ditches, and
even your backyard pond whereas
the bitterns will be located mostly
in marshy areas where they can
blend in with the reeds and vege-
tation. They hunt food in the early.
morn or late hours of the day. but
are not limited to that time frame.
Some feed at night. They will, and
depending on the bird's habitat
and likes, eat fish, crustacea, .
frogs, insects, snakes, small
mammals such as mice, and other
tasty foods.
The members of the heron
family, except for the bitterns, are
long-legged, long-necked, slender-
bodied, long-toed, big-footed and
long-beaked ,birds. They are adept
at standing very still in a frozen
mode to wait for their prey to pass.
nearby. They grab the prey, and
swallow it whole. Once they have
eaten, the undigested parts are
regurgitated as a pellet the same
as oWls, hawks, eagles, and other
birds of prey. The bitterns also
feed the same except they have
short, stubbier-shaped .bodies
with shorter legs to work the
marshes. They can squeeze their


bodies into what looks like a
straight stick or reed to match the
vegetation around them.
The herons are all very grace-.
ful birds to watch. Their very long
toes and long legs take very delib-
erate, steps among the waters,,
ever-watching for their prey. Their
eyesight is excellent and the neck
allows them to reach out and grab
the food. They, can also move
about very fast as I was observing
in a beautiful and rarely seen red-
dish egret not long ago, again in
one of my favorite sports for bird-
ing. He appeared to be a young-
ster, but, instead of graceful, he
was anything but! He darted and
stabbed; with wings out and feet
moving constantly running from
this side to that side, he stabbed
and grabbed taking a second to
swallow, then back to darting
around again. He was beyond
graceful, to say the least He was
so comical! Fun to .watch and
laugh out loud, I did! And, not far
away was a snowy and a great
blue going on about their usual
business as graceful as could be,
ignoring this little guy!

Members of the heron family
lay from two to six eggs, varying
with the species, and of different
colors, again varying with the
species and their habitat. They'
nest in, tall trees and in shrubs,
building nests of large twigs and
branches, sometimes softening
them with materials like moss
and leaves, but often not. They
may use the nest -site year after,
year and much of the time may
lay their eggs in a rookery of birds
together. The eggs hatch after
about 24-30 days and the fledg-
ling is fed regurgitated food from
both parents who also share nest-
sitting duties. Then, as it'gets
older the food is placed in the nest
itself or on the ground where the
baby stands. The birds usually
roost together in a swampy area,
in trees-cypress or other. In some
areas, rookeries and' roosting,
areas are built for them in watery


areas for continued protection of
the species.
Even though they spend time
together roosting, they are also
territorial. I remember the first
blue heron that Paula (Boone) and
I had rehabilitated about 10 years
or so ago. We took him to our
release site where there was the
bay and a marsh pond and
another .blue heron. Everything
was just right for this released We
were more in question about,
"Could he fly? Will he be okay?,
etc." We let him out. Immediately,
the other great blue attacked himl
We couldn't believe our bird was
being, attacked by this bully bird!
How dare he do this to our bird!
,Well, finally our bird flew to a
nearby palm tree where he stayed
and the bully took off down the
beach. Ours looked okay so we left
him, feeling he was going to make
it. And he was, gone the next,
morn. Lesson learned.
And, on that note, a reminder
that just like the pelican, the gan-
nets, loons, and other, long-
necked, long-beaked birds, will
attack with the neck and end of
the .beak which always goes
toward the eyes of a predator.
And, that predator could be you! If
you find any of these birds that
need attention, please be careful.
Use a sheet or a jacket, anything
to cover the head and hold the
beak. Don't let it go... they are v'er
quick! Cut the barb off the fishing
hook if that's his problem. and
pull it through or cut fishing line
off the body and, unless it needs
help in rehabilitation, then let it
go., But continue to watch that
beak! One gannet that I released
turned around and came back at
me, backing me away from
him...with that beak, no less!
P.S. There are a lot of great
birding spots along St. Joseph's
Bay. Besides the heron family
members, you can also view their
cousins the- ibises, flamingos,
spoonbills., and maybe even a
stork! Have fun bird-watching. It
is very relaxing and can be funt

High School

by Dr. Bill Truby '


This Thursday starts the cur-
rent grading period. One-quarter
of the school year is now com-
plete. It has been a rewarding
opening when one considers all of
the changes and accomplish-
ments. Our student body and its
leadership are- to be commended
fdr a solid effort in the classroom,
on. the fields'of competition, and
in the community. With regard to
this last point, please know that
our students have- had ongoing
projects to help families in need
here in our area as well as sup-
porting relief efforts associated
with the terrorists' attacks. You
have every reason to be proud of
the students of WHSI
The WHS football team con-
tinued its march towards the
*playoffs with a, 21-0 victory over
Liberty County' High School. The
2nd ranked Gators are living up
to the predictions made about
them. The next home game is this
Friday's Homecoming on October
19th vs. Blountstown. The game
will begin at 7:00 p.m.
Homecoming will have some
special events associated with it.,
Here are some of the details you,
* need to know. Everyday is a dif-
ferent dress day. Students have
received some advance notice odn'
the themes. Door decorations will
be judged on 10/18. We will have

600,000 scholarships cataloged
here! 2.) Parents should contact
their employers for information
from their companies. 3.) Start
the pursuit early!

"Under the Bridge"
My husband and I have just
returned from our yearly fishing
trip 'under the bridge' in your fair
city.
The intracoastal euripus,, roil-
ing with the incoming and outgo-
ing tides, is one of the best fishing
places we know of. Also, the sun-
sets shimmering across the bay
water are truly God's own palette.
I'm an artist and have never been
able to capture these beautiful
days ending as well as He.
Yesterday when we left (reluc-
tantly because the trout and
flounder were biting) the banks on
either side of the bridge were lined
with fishermen and small boats
were anchored out in the channel.
Everyone was friendly and consid-
erate of their fellow fishermen. If
lines got crossed they were under-
standingly reeled in and -untan-
Sgled. If someone was playing a 'big
one' others reeled in to give them
room. Those with cast nets shared
their captured bait. Young chil-
dren played about and a golden
lab swam beside its master who
was standing in waist high water.
Sea birds and human shared the
coastline. One local man told me
that he had driven down to see his
grandchildren who were coming
fishing with their parents.
A photographer from a sports
magazine took pictures of myself
with a big blue I'd landed and of a
retired doctor from Arizona with a
beautiful trout. The atmosphere
was exciting, friendly and consid-
erate.
The road under the bridge
showed signs of improvement and
we heard mention that a dock was
to be built. Two trash containers
had been placed at the end of the
road but obviously had not been
serviced recently. Both were over-
flowing with litter, broken glass,
discarded fishing line... hazards
for bare feet and wildlife.
Obviously people will use trash
receptacles but they must be ser-
viced. Public -bathroom' facilities
are badly needed" 'under the,
bridge'.
We hope that the planning
commissioners will give this pop-
ular place for residents and visi-
tors more consideration and help.
'keep it a safe, secure, and.pleas-
Sant place tovisit.
People can bring their chil-
dren after school for an afternoon
of togetherness, older people can
bring their lawn chairs and fish

2 Open letter to Mexico

bounti- Beach Council
Dear Council,
ncerely, .My husband and I felt it was
Reeves time to address the council on
what we consider to be a very dis-
turbing situation. Subject is the
council meetings. They seem to be
*yV turning into personal mud slings
and public displays of vindictive-
ness. It is unfortunate that in a
small town, as Mexico Beach is,
we have to have a "McCoy and
id some Hatfield" atmosphere.
E for the The council meetings are
m that open to the public and should
County portray. an air of professionalism
er and and courtesies'. This is time that
the pro- city matters need to be discussed
' Evelyn and voted on for the betterment of
nd they all concerned, not a time to air
ery pro- personal feelings. If the public's
executed comments and concerns are
Paul allowed to be voiced it should be
5 radio, done with consideration to time
io both and subject at hand, past sub-
ents. jects and administrations should
'ell with not even be considered.
-esenta- I think- it is time that the
judging council look at adopting Roberts
young Rules of Order, so that the meet-
for the ings can be run in an orderly
formal- fashion, as Mayor Kingsland has
Melita's been trying to do. The council.
icipants members and mayor are duly\
vis, and elected, officials and each won by a
ne was majority vote, we the residents of
ky and Mexico Beach put these people in
)n of N- office. Unfortunately. there are
testants always a few sore losers, but that
is the system and we do live in a
terrific democracy. The residents of this
my tal- town need to drop their personal
in.Gulf feelings and start pulling together
native to and support our elected officials.
'hom we Our future is at stake,
whether you want to believe it or
ose who not, progress is coming and we
Jr. Miss can't stop it. Jut look around and
see the tremendous building, real
incerely, estate sales, and increase in pop-
oghagan ulation in the last few years.
This is no time for the resi-
dents of Mexico Beach to separate
Ie into two different clans, we now
have a mayor who brought into
office her, professionalism and
ability to handle some very seri-
ns ha ous situations, i.e. the sewer pro-
last 11v ject. Mayor Kingsland, saved the
last 11 residents of this town from a dis-
ministra- astrous situation. Her knowledge
em. The and business background is a
purpose 'tremendous asset to the position
ers more ~~ghe holds. Her concerns for the
growth of Mexico Beach is a true
*** m~ieo A priority in her mind, after all she
ver your and her husband live here. She
use reg- herself is a business owner and
lers can knows how the commercial world


can invade and destroy the small
town atmosphere, and the fear of
being another Destin is on all our
minds.
I think it is time for the hatch-
ets to be buried and we all group
together to keep this little place in
paradise, PARADISE.
Sincerely,
Mitch and Marsha Hampton

Phone Scam
Dear Editor:
I received a telephone call last
evening from an individual identi-
fying himself as an AT&T Service
technician who was conducting a
test on telephone lines. He stated
that to complete the test I should
touch nine(9), zero (0), the pound
sign (#), and then hang. up.
Luckily, I was suspicious and
refused.
Upon contacting the tele-
phone company, I was informed
that by pushing 90#, you give the
requesting individual full access
to your telephone line, which
enables him/her to place long dis-
tance calls billed to your home
phone number. I was further
informed that this scam has been
originating from many local
jails/prisons. I have also verified
,this information with UCB
Telecom, Pacific Bell, MCI, Bell
Atlantic and GTE.
Please beware. DO NOT press
9, 0, # for ANYONE. The GTE
Security Department requested
that I share this information with
EVERYONE I KNOW. If you have
mailing lists and/or newsletters
from organizations you are con-
nected with, I encourage you to
pass on this information to them,
too. After checking with Verizon
they said it was true.'

On Sunday, October 7th, the 2nd Annual Car Show was held
at Tyndall Air Force Base-and it was open to law enforcement
as well as to the public. Sergeant Mark Cutler of the Gulf County
Sheriff's Office entered the Gulf County D.A.R.E. car and won
first place in the law enforcement category. Bay County had two
vehicles entered and a pair from Tyndall also competed. Gulf
County is proud of its D.A.R.E. vehicle and apparently others

Talk to Your Kids About Abstinence


October is let's talk about
abstinence month. Talk to your
kids about sex. If you aren't, who
is?
Despite the recently declining
teen pregnancy rates, four in 10
teenage girls get pregnant at least
once before they reach age 20,
resulting in more than 900,000
teen pregnancies a year. At this
level, the United States has the
highest rate of teen pregnancy in
the fully industrialized world.
"I absolutely hate hearing
everyone talk about that great
party on the weekend or how they
are going out of town over spring
break. It seems that I am missing
out on my childhood years. When
my daughter grows up and asks
me what I did when I was a teen,
all I will be able to say is 'I
changed your diapers and pre-
pared your formula.' I really -wish
I could go back and do things dif-
ferently. I am sick of the constant
worrying about how'we are ever
going to live once we move out of
my mother's house." -16 year-old
mother.
The National Campaign to
Prevent Teen Pregnancy brings us
the teen's voice on "Sex Has
Consequences: Teens Tell All."
Listen to what teens have to
say about talking with or,not talk-
ing with their parents about sex:
"It always matters to me how
my parents feel. I am very honest
with them about sex and they are
very honest with me. Being able to
communicate with them about sex
is very important so that we can
help each other understand.'
"I wouldn't know *ihgt is most-
important when parents talk
about sex. My parents never
talked to me, that's why I am now
a dad."
"I think parents need to be
honest about sex. They should'
also tell us about birth cbntrol...
everything! I know that some pair-
ents don't want their kids to know
that stuff... but,, please grow up!
Would you rather they found out
about sex when some guy tells
them that it's for'fun,, and it won't
hurt, and they 'should trust him
(or her for that .riatter)?"
A' "The only way thlt I can think
of to prevent teen pregnancy is if

parents hold a good' and manage-
able relationship with their kids."
"I think most parents-'make
the mistake of scaring their kids.
Parents should tell their kids they
won't punish them but that they
will be disappointed."
"Trying to bully us into admit-
ting we are having sex does not
help."
"I knew how my parents felt
about me having sex, but I' did if
anyway. I didn't care what they
thought. But they were right. I got
pregnant at 16, and now I listen to
my parents a lot more."
"My parents don't want me to
have sex, but I don't care because
I would love to get pregnant. If I
had a baby, then I'd have someone
to love me arid need me'."
"It's almost as if adults are
afraid to talk about it for fear they
will put the idea in our head. Well,
guess what...we are already think-
ing about it and we need as much
guidance and advice as possible."
"My parents don't like the fact
that I am having sex, but they
understand that if it does happen,
my boyfriend wears a condom and
I am on the pill."
"The most important factor
associated with young women
being overwhelmed by the stress qof
life, in my opinion, is a lapse in
proper parenting. Parents need to
take responsibility for their child's
actions and teach them right from
Twohg." -
"Some kids. their parents are
always yelling at them. "If you ever
have sex, I'm going to kill you! If
you have sex, I'm going to do this
to you!" Forget it! I'm going to go
have sex. See what you do. I'm
going to go have sex just to 'piss,
you off!" '
"I really don't like it when my
parents beat around the6bush., I
would like it if they came 'out and
said what they meant. The. most
helpful thing to me is that I hear it
from my parents and not from the
streets. 'The unhelpful thing is
when they start to lecture."
"I am a teen mom. I don't
