Powder Scare at PSJHS


Not Anthrax,
Last Thursday, local students
at Port St. Joe High and Middle
Schools got a sampling of the anx-
iety being experienced by folks
across the country when a stu-
dent found an unidentified pow-
der packed in a package contain-
ing his senior portraits.
The substance was discov-
ered at approximately 11:30 a.m.
by. the student who advised the
teacher of his discovery. The stu-
dent carried the package to
Principal Chris Earley's office and
the proper authorities were con-
tacted.
Members of the Gulf County
Sheriffs Office, Gulf County
Health Department, and Gulf
Emergency Management quickly
assessed the situation and
responded with emergency con-
tainment procedures.
According to Doug Kent,
Director of the Gulf County
Health Department, the class-

room and office were quaran-
tined; the picture package was
double sealed, boxed, and sent to
Jacksonville via Gulf County
Sheriffs Office deputies, to the
Florida Department of Health lab-
oratories for testing and identifi-
cation; and the school's air condi-
tioning and heating ventilation
system was shut down so that
any possible airborne spores
would be contained.
"We knew the chances were
slim that this was anthrax," Kent
said, "But, we contacted the
photo distributors who could give
us no reason for the powder
residue being in the package of
photos. Because the substance
could not be identified, we had to
treat the incident with full cau-
tion, following state guidelines,"
he continued.
Both Port St. Joe High and
Middle Schools were locked down
during the initial investigation
(See ANTHRAX on Page 3A)


It states-
"As the Aquatic Preserve
Manager, I have determined that
the measures provided in the
beach management plan are.
insufficient to protect dunes, veg-
etation, or sea turtles from the
impacts of vehicular traffic at this
time on St. Joseph Peninsula.
This decision is based on informa-
tion collected over the past 3
years and on historic erosion data
of the area.
It is also based on the fact
that the St. Joseph Bay Aquatic
Preserve beach management plan
(portions attached) has been
repeatedly violated by Gulf
County and the general public. I
suggest we form a working group
(made up of county, state, and
federal personnel, and Gulf
County residents). and hold a
meeung to address concerns and
determine what steps need to be
taken to meet the conditions of
the plan.
If conditions of the plan are
not met within the period of time
agreed to in the meeting, a mora-
tonum shall be imposed on vehic-
ular driving within the aquatic
preserve portion of Cape San
Bias, except for emergency vehi-
cles and FWC permitted turtle
patrol."
This came as somewhat of a
surprise to the county, since the
letter does not state how the man-
agement plan has been violated
nor has the county received any
formal notification that they or
residents have been violating the


,agreement. Furthermore, no data
has been presented that singles
'.out beach driving as being the
Culprit for erosion or sea turtle
,4Impaction.
Gulf County did recently pass
:a lighting ordinance for the coun-
ty that is aimed at protecting sea
.turtle populations from disorien-
tations caused by lighting along
the Gulf of Mexico.
Commissioners agreed to call
,a meeting to discuss the issue.
'but they did not set the date for
that meeting. Commissioner Jerry
Barnes suggested the board make
a few contacts and coordinate a
date that fits the time schedules
of local residents. He also asked
that the date be set far enough in
advance to allow time to advertise
the meeting's date. time, and
place.
Chief Administrator Don
Butler also noted that someone
has been locking the beach access
gates at the Cape and that the
county work crew had even been
reported to the sheriffs office
while they were working in the
area.
Butler suggested that the
iAquatic Preserve management
group may want to place a mora-
torium on beach driving on the
gulf side of the Aquatic Preserve
area.
The public will be notLfied as
soon as a meeting date has been
set.

Election Campaign Is


Underway In
The election season is under-
way in Mexico Beach in prepara-
tion for the upcoming Tuesday,
November 6 voting. Two, council
seats are up for grabs and candi-
dates are trying to convince voters
to vote for then.
Signs have sprung tip all over
SMexico Beach and -candidates
have begun their campaigns.
Incumbent Cecil J. "Bud"
Jones is challenged by Mel
Ashcraft for the Group 4 seat, and
Group 5 incumbent David Miller
is challenged by Chuck Risinger.
Mayor Kathie' Kihgsland., Council-
persons. Carolyn Metcalf and
David Thompson complete the
board, and are currently serving
unexpired terms.
The candidates all partic-
ipated in' a debate Friday, October


Mexico Beach
19, sponsored by the American
Association of Retired Pefsorns.
The Mexico Beach Civic Center
was filled to capacity with inter-
ested citizens.
Those in attendance had their
own opinions of who 'won' the
debate, but it was clear that there
were differences between the
office seekers. Each candidate
was given questions in prepara-
tion for the debate and they
answered them when asked by
Councilman Thompson, who
served as moderator. After the for-
mal questions, audience members
were also able to submit ques-
tions. Candidates presented clear
distifictions in how they saw the
current and future needs of
Mexico Beach and how they would
govern if elected.

Light Shine

It was sure a good sight to see the old Beacon Hill range light
returned to Gulf County a few weeks ago.
Gulf County has a rich history. Unfortunately, many of the
bigger pieces of that history are no longer with us. We nearly lost
the Cape San Blas, Lighthouse keeper's quarters and the light out
of the Cape San Blas Lighthouse. But, it now appears the St..
Joseph Historical Society has the inside track' to take over the
houses and the light.
The same historical society has been instrumental in locating
and preserving the Beacon Hill range light. Gulf County has also
been an important factor in the saving of history at both sites,
and seems poised to continue those efforts where they are able
to help.
As it is in most of these type endeavors, some one or group
has to put in the necessary volunteer hours to dot the I's and
cross the T's to make these things happen. The historical society
has been that somebody and our community owes its member-
ship and the county a great debt of gratitude for helping make
these history-saving events come together.
Danny Raffield spoke about one of his wishes as he talked
about the range light, which is currently on display at the Gulf
County Public Library as a historical marker.
Raffield said, "One day I hope to see this history visible at the
old range lighthouse and Beacon Hill lighthouse site."
Some of the original foundations from those structures can
still be seen at the location which is now the site of Gulf County's
Beacon Hill Park. Knowing the reputation of the historical soci-
ety for helping make these sort of things come together, it would-
n't surprise me the least little bit to see that historical marker
making its mark back at its old homestead.
Our thanks are again extended.


Need to "Cover Up" the Rest of

the County-Before It's Too Late
The City of Port St. Joe recently passed an adult entertain-
ment ordinance which defines and addresses limitations of such
businesses inside the city limits of Port St. Joe.
You can't make such perversion illegal, but what you can.db
is restrict the location and institute limitations of such busi-
nesses to the point that it probably would not be very profitable
for a person to locate such establishments in the city.
Of course, all of this is subject to the interpretation of the
law, but some of the ordinances the city used to base its restric-
tions have been tested in court and have withstood the chal-
lenges.
I am fully aware that the county has given some considera-
tion to a similar ordinance and it would not surprise me one lit-
tle bit to hear that the City of Wewahitchka has also.
Unfortunately, now that Port St. Joe has moved forward with the
passage of its ordinance, a window of opportunity could be
cracked if someone so desired to bring the "art" of adult enter-
tainment to Gulf County.
We need to move now to make all of the county as difficult a
place for such establishments to show their wares as legally pos-
sible. One of the things that makes our community so special is
the moral fiber that holds us together.
In my humble opinion, one of the last thing our area needs is
perversion such as accompanies adult entertainment businesses
dotting our countryside. Let's move quickly to pull the covers up
on the entire county before we get caught with our pants down.


"Dorothy Jean doesn't need a
mask," Buddy Wiggleton leaned
his head forward as was his cus-
tom when driving home a point,
"that face could make a freight
train take a dirt road."
I don't know if it was dirt or
not, but we had come to some kind
of crossroads of our own. We were
a little too big to go trick' or
treatin'-but not big enough to
hang with Leon and Nicky Joe at
the "unofficial" high school
Halloween party out at Carroll
Lake.
Didn't you just hate those in-
between-years!
"She looks like she fell out of
an ugly tree. And hit every limb on
the way down!" Buddy was more
interested in Dorothy Jean Ritter.

is racing right up the walkway to
get her!"
That idea died for lack of a sec-
ond. We had done that for the last
three years.
Something in me wanted to go
trick or treating I liked the free
candy. And I didn't mind the half
breathing behind the fifty-cent
Dra6ula face. Or the long walk
around town. Or Miss Eugenia
Quesenberry lifting my mask and
declaring, "Why, I thought you
were one of the Colbert boys!"
But I wasn't about to embar-
rass myself, by, saying anything.
The guys would think I was a
wimp. We were almost in high
school now. And a little too big....

"Her brothers musta rolled her.
up when she was a baby and
bounced her'around like a basket-
ball. I've seen better heads at the
produce counter in Woodrow
Kenndn's store!" Buddy had it bad.
This Halloween was typical of
everything that had been going on
for months now. W e just didn't
seem .to fit in anywhere. Mr.


Miss Barbara gave us homework
every' night because. "this is not
elementary school." then passed
out suckers if you handed in your
report on time.
We'd been' through the haunt-
ed house at the fire station enough
years to finally figure out that
nobody ever got killed or carried off
while wandering along those dark
passageways. Although Millicent
Blackburn did cut her arm near
'bout off backing, out the plate
glass window when Mr. Cantrell
raised up from that coffin. It -was
for the most part, however, pretty
tame to us by now.
"If she flapped her ears a cou-
ple of times in a row, she'd lift nght
off the ground. I've seen better
looking faces on a coconut."
"Buddy, would you give it a
rest! We're trying to come up with
our Halloween plan here."
"I tell you what we ought to
do-we ought to give Dorothy Jean
a broom. She could give us a free
ride around town!"
It didn't take but three sec-
onds after the "free nde" comment
for Ricky Gene to come up with the

We circled the fire station and'

any of the little kids. We trotted
over to Walnut Street. There were
some Butterfinger and Three
Musketeer houses in the area. We
parked Prince and sent our short-
est guy out to knock on a fewv
doors. We had decided we were too
old for trick or treating but you

Only "Treats"


WE HAVE FIVE thriving
financial institutions in this little
old economically depnved town.,
All seem to be doing well, even
during this period of national
slow-down. The disaster in New
York City, which did a number on
several communities throughout
the nation, didn't affect us too
badly.
Oh, we could tell it, but it did-
n't affect anything except our
national ego to any great extent.
Several residents had rela-
tives and friends involved in the
tragedy and, of course, we felt bad
for them and mourned right along
with the rest of the nation-and
braced ~ourselves to absorb some
of the "pay-back," but financially
it didn't have the affect on us the
closing of the Florida Coast Paper
mill did a few years prior.
Despite that tragedy, our five
financial institutions and the
remainder of the businesses still
with us are doing fairly well, I
' believe.


.. No Trickin' Found Around TI


ALL OF THIS, TO bring me to
the observation on which I am
about to share with you this
week.
All five of these finance hous-
es which operate in Port St. Joe,
have a ready bowl which is kept
full of candy, of some sort, to give
a "sweet treat" to their customers.
I don't know which one start-
ed the practice, but now all seem
to have adopted the practice and
all their customers seem to have
come to expect it!
They act like something is
missing, if they take a check, or
cash, or a mixture of both, to
these banks and they don't get


their treat! It's come to be expect-
ed as a part of doing banking
business.
I like it!
It gives a "down-home" touch
to the crass business of handling
yotir financial dealings. It makes
the pill easier: to swallow when
one goes into one of the institu-
tions to pay on a loan..

NOW THAT I'VE TOLD you
they all do it, I can do what I real-
ly came to do and mention one
specific institution without alien-
ating.the other four.
The one I had in mind is the
Wewahitchka State Bank.


For years, they .have given
suckers as their sweet treat. Of
course, they re tiny, but they are
handed out to customers, kids,
and all who come into the bank
with a sweet tooth which needs
taking care of.
My wife once expressed an
affinity for their root beer flavored
suckersto. one of their directors,
George Core..
S, Now, George goes through all
their suckers, when the bank gets
. a new supply delivered, removing
all the root beer flavored ones and
sends them to my wife,
If George didn't have a per-
fectly lovely wife of his own, I
would sort of suspect he was
attempting to woo mine away
from me.
.. The other day, Frenchie came
into The Star office during the
'middle of the week,'to get some-
thing, and found out George had
been there earlier.
He left her a bundle of those
root beer flavored suckers, which


he had removed from the bank's
stock!

OF COURSE, WHEN he pro-
vides Frenchie with a bundle of
root beer flavored suckers, I am a
beneficiary of his largesse, also!
I eat root beer flavored suck-
ers, too.
I might tell George that I like
$100 bills, while he is indulging
favors, and see how many he will
bring me. I, somehow, get the idea
that he wouldn't be so eager to
meet this want. as he is to provide
a few suckers now and then."
I might even have gotten
George into trouble, telling you of
his activity with the suckers and I
wouldn't want to do that. It might
dry up the supply!
But, it wouldn't bother
George. He's at the age where
nothing bothers him. He just
remembers something that hap-
pened, 50 or so years ago, relates
it to all who will listen, and he's
perfectly happy. The memory of


his Town

something which has happenedi
to someone, or some humorous
anecdote recalled, seem to be the-
grist on which he thrives-not,
whether or not the bank officers
take a dim -view of him giving:
away all their root beer flavored
suckers!
After all, didn't they buy them
to give away?

IT'S COMING UP time for
Hallowe'en, and "trick or treat"! I
know this, because it -was the
theme for the old folks luncheon I
attended at my church the other
day.
They invite me to come to all
their luncheons, you understand.
They Invited me- to, the one
they had last Wednesday and they
had favors made up of small cups
of candy treats for Hallowe'en. If
all the banks did the same as
George Core, I wouldn't have to.
buy any treats for Hallowe'enl

Sampling Nearly Completed At



Old, Paper Mill Site/Impoundment


Most of the sampling work
has been completed at the
Smurfit-Stone Container mill site
and St. Joe Company property,
located adjacent to the site and
formerly serving as the old
impoundment area for the plant.
As has been reported in The
Star, a total of five wells were dug
on the mill site (four at the St. Joe
impoundment location), soil sam-
ples made on the St. Joe property,


and sediment samples taken at
three sites in St. Joseph Bay,
adjacent to the two properties.
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (FDEP)
representatives were not only at
the sites during the process, but
actively participated in the sam-
pling process. While consultants
for Smurfit-Stone and St. Joe
have been hired to conduct the
environmental tests on behalf of


Sampling wells were drilled in nine different locations at the

the owners after approval by
FDEP, the regulating agency is
also taking split samples to be
evaluated at their testing facili-
ties.
Both property owners have
pledged to keep the public 100%
informed as to what is happening
during the testing process. Now
that sampling is nearly complete,
the next step will be conducting
analysis of the samples and draw-
ing a conclusion from the testing
results.
The split samples are coming
from identical samples. Once the
sampling data is compiled and
evaluated-about mid-
December-a public heanng will

Governor's Proposals
Good for Gulf County
Economy, Growth
Economic Stimulus Package to
drive growth, help stabilize Gulf
County's Economy.
To protect Gulf County jobs
and ensure the region's continued
economic stability, the Gulf
County Economic Development
Council announced last Friday its
support for a series of economic
initiatives recently advanced by
Governor Jeb Bush.
"Most local businesses were
relatively unaffected by the
September 11 terrorist attacks,"
said Karen Whaley, Directpr.of the
Gulf County Economic Develop-
ment Council, "but the longer-
term impact of the slowing
economy on Gulf County is still
unknown.
"The governor's proposals to
modify current business incentive
programs in the state will con-
tribute tremendously towards
retaining existing businesses and
ensuring that any consolidations
resulting from the economic slow-
down bringimore jobs to Florida,`
not fewer," she, said.
Among the proposals set forth
by Gov. Bush, the: Gulf County
Economic Development. Council,
supports accelerating public
works projects to create addi-
tional jobs, expanding the Capital
Investment Tax Credit program,
and relaxing eligibility criteria for
the Qualified Targeted Incentive
program and the Qualified
Defense Contractor program.
"If these program modifica-
tions are approved by the Florida
House and Senate during Special
Session, they will provide an
immediate boost to the aviation.
information technology, commu-
nications, corporate headquar-
ters. research & development.
electronic equipment and defense
industries." added Whaley. rs<
call on all members of our s'ae,
delegation to do everything possi-,
ble to secure passage of these pro-
posals, thereby protecting Florida
jobs and ensuring economic sta-
Sbility."

It's Time For A Change

In the words of a song by the
Winans, "It's Time for a Change",
and the time' is now. If not you,
who? If not now, when? The Bible
stands as the only sufficient
authority for providing a basis for
racial pride, guidelines for suc-
cessfully addressing racial issues,
and glue for maintaining racial
unity. Only by allowing the Bible
to be the standard by which we
judge ourselves and others can we
re-experience the power necessary
to be the kind of salt and light
that can save a decaying society.

It's time for a change in the
Wewahitchka community-to come
together. We are not in the 1960s
(civil rights movement) any more.
We are now in 2001. It is time to
,put a stop to looking at each other
because we are black or white,
Baptist or Pentecostal, or Repub-
lican or Democrat.
We should look at each other
as sisters and brothers in the
Lord. I have been observing how
we act toward each other: we
should be ashamed of ourselves.
We go to a football game, and you
will see the blacks on their side
and the white people on their side.
And we don't ever go to each
other's churches. We may of all
came on different ships, but we
are on the same boat now.
It is time for,us to sit together
at public events and start going to
each other's churches as sisters
and brothers. God does not
require that all churches be inte-
grated, but he does require that
all function harmoniously as the
Body of Christ without concern
for race or culture. If you are a
-Christian, you know that we will
not be separate in heaven. If we
can't get along in a small town,
you know good and well that our
feet will not be able to step into
the Kingdom of God. God did not
make us to be separated white or
black. He made us all in His pre-
cious sight. Jesus said, "If you
hate your bothers [different races]
you are a murderer. and ye know
no murderer hath eternal life
abiding in him." 1 John 3:15. We
are the same people., different only
on the outside. For example, con-
sider the candy M&Ms. You will
- gee' all the different colors of th.-.
.M&Ms. but inside the candy is a
the same. That is how we are in
the world: different races, but
underneath the same. In addition,
it is a joyous feeling to learn from
each other.
Although my 'best friend,
Jeremy Suber, and I are of differ-
ent races, we have so much fun
together and have learned 'so
much from one another that we
have become more than friends.
We have also become brothers. I
challenge each of you to really get
to know someone from another
race, and a different background.
When you do this you will see the
color of friendship. Also, I would
like for our community to have a
community get-together every
month on a Saturday. I would like
for everybody to bring dishes and.
Gather for fellowship. Businesses
might want to donate some
drinks, plates, etc. When we do

Praise for Festival
Dear Sir,
My husband and I were fortu-
nate enough to be in this area last'
week when the Panhandle Birding
and Wildflower Festival was being
held. The organizers, particularly
Marie Steele-Romanelli, should be
congratulated on planning and
overseeing a very successful
event.
We attended seven tours and
lectures over the four-day period
and were very impressed with the
choice of interesting topics, the,
knowledgeable speakers and tour
guides, and the helpful volun-'
teers. We were delighted to have
the opportunity to visit several
areas that are usually accessible
only with special permission or
four-wheel drive vehicles.
We met people who had come
from near and far for the event,
and they hoped, as we do, that
this was the first of many
Panhandle Birding and Wildflower
Festivals..
.It was a' wonderful introduc-.
tion to the birds, lowers. crea-
tires and habitats of this
beautiful area.
Sincerely,
Jean Moyle, Jupiter. FL

Impressed With Festival

"Red Ribbon Week" began, as,
a memorial of Enrique Camarena,
(aka Kiki). Kiki worked his xway
through college, served in the
Marine Corps, and then became a ,
fireman.
After that he became a police -'
officer, and after seeing many of
his friends get into trouble -'
because of drugs, Kiki joined the
Drug Enforcement Agency. He
worked under cover in the United
States and was sent to Mexico. "
The drug lords in that country
found out who he was and kid-
napped, tortured and luklled him..
After a month his body was
discovered and returned to his
parents. Kiki's mother and friends
started to wear red ribbons, to
honor him. As the story spread i
across the country, others began r
wearing red ribbons--thus "Red
Ribbon Week."
Let us all remember those .
who have given their lives in the
war against drugs and do our part
to make our country drug free.

recent Birding and Wildflower i
Festival. It was the first time I had
been to your part of the
Panhandle. I must say I was i
impressed with your friendly corn-
munity, your beautiful area and
the organization of your festival. I
saw some great birds and met'
some very nice people.
The food at the Friday night
buffet, Taste of the Coast, was
wonderful. I bet I gained five
pounds at least. The organizers of
the festivals are to be congratu-
lated. I hope you keep having this'
festival because I want to core
back. And next year I plan .to
bring friends.

Mexico Beach Strengthens Development Code


.The Mexico Beach City
Council is currently considering
an amendment to its Land
Development Code that would


create a City Zoning Map and
strengthen its land use regula-
tions. The changes make the city's
development regulations more


consistent with each other, which
will prevent confusion and misap-
plication of the regulations in the
future. Mexico Beach does not
have an official zoning map and
this proposed amendment will
create one.
Apparently, there was some
concern about the impact of the
proposed amendment on the
height requirements currently in
place in Mexico Beach. The ordi-
nance, however, does not change
in any way the height restrictions
presently used by the City.
Indeed, the height and other
building requirements should be
easier to enforce by the City under
the language of the new ordi-
nance.
"This ordinance is not about
changing the land development
regulations but about closing
some loopholes in our zoning reg-
ulations in order to better control
future building. No one owns the
view in Mexico Beach and I will
not permit high rises to be built,'"
said Mayor Kathy Kingsland.
Most municipalities in Florida
have in place an official, zoning
map that its citizens rely upon for
existing land use information.
Cities also use a future land use
map to steer potentUal growth and
development of its community in
the proper direction. The future
land use map is a picture of where
a community wants to be in five to
ten years, while a zoning map is a
picture of where the City is
presently.


"The proposed amendment
was necessary to establish a zon-
ing map separate from a future
land use map because they serve
different functions. The proposed
amendment does not change any
height requirements or permit
high rises, it allows us to better
govern our city and serve our citi-
zens."
The city council will have the
final reading and action on the
proposed amendment at its
November regular meeting.

often made the butt of jokes.

things pain-free. We go to
extreme efforts to ensure that
our patients will be as relaxed,
pain-free and comfortable as
possible.
When you go to the dentist to
relieve a painful situation such as
gum disease, an abscess, or a
cavity that has to be filled, you'll
feel a whole lot better when you
leave than when you arrived.
'Remember, most dental
problems are preventable by
YOU with proper home care. So,

Fourth and filth grade students at Port St. Joe Elementary had a unique opportunity recently
to learn about the importance of forests in the state of Florida. The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services has teamed with the Florida Forestry Association to provide a
brightly colored 18-wheel showvan.equipped with 12 computers on which students experienced an
interactive CD-ROM that explains the value of Florida's forests and why it is important to take
care of them. Students also learned about the thousands of products trees provide and the variety
of recreational activities available in the state's forests. The boys and girls especially enjoyed play-
ing games such as "I Wood If I Could" and "dressing" different varieties of trees.

Gators Clinch District 2A Title

Host Port St. Joe Friday in County Rivalry


:The #2 ranked Wewahitchka
Gators clinched the District 2-A
title, and picked up its first win
over Blountstown since 1986 with
Friday night's 21-0 victory over
the Tigers. The win improved the
Gators to 8-0 overall on the
season and 4-0 in district play.
"It was a great win for us, and
also a great homecoming win,"
said head coach Grant Grantham.
"We had a great crowd at the
game to see us beat Blountstown
for the first time since 1986."
:Wewahitchka left the Tigers
with great field position early in
the ball game, fumbling on their
second offensive play of the game
| on their own 36 yard line.
However, the Gator defense
stepped up like they have all
season, and stopped Blountstown
in four plays. (
: The Gators then mounted a


seven play, 63 yard scoring drive
to take a 7-0 lead. Ryan Baker
took the hand-off around the
right side, stiff armed a defender
and scored from 30 yards out to
cap off the drive. Matt Kramer
added the extra point with 4:58
remaining in the first quarter.
Big plays during the drive
were: an 11 yard run by Chris
Gainer; a 19 yard pass from
quarterback Brandon Jones to
Myron Vann to convert on third
and seven; and a 16 yard pass
from Jones to Gainer.
On the ensuing kick-off,
'Blountstown's Daniel Foster
returned the kick 15 yards before
fumbling the football- Aaron
Gray recovered the oIose ball for
the Gators on the Tigers' 23 yard
line.
On third down and 10,
Brandon Jones took the snap in


shot-gun formation, and found
Myron Vann open in the middle of
the endzone for a 23 yard
touchdown. Kramer split the
uprights, giving the Gators a 14-0
lead with 3:54 .left in the first
quarter.
The Tigers drove from their
own 38 yard line to the
Wewahitchka six on their ensuing
possession. However, the Gator
defense made another big stand,
stopping Blountstown on the nine
yard line.
The Gators then drove the


final touchdown of the game.
Harold Williams capped off the
four play drive with a one yard
plunge around the right side on a
toss sweep. Kramer's extra point
gave the Gators a 21-0 lead with
:39.1 seconds remaining in the
first half of play. During the drive,
Jones completed a 15 yard pass
to Ryan Baker; and Vann had a
14, yard run to give the Gators
first and goal from the two yard
line.
The Gator defense took over
from there, holding the Tigers

GT Com Blood
Drive A Success
GT Comn wishes to thank all
who were able and willing to
donate blood last Wednesday,
October 17 during their first
sponsored blood drive with the
Northwest Florida Blood Center.
The 24 units of blood' col-
lected from employees and the
general public could save the lives
of 72 individuals. Each unit of
blood is broken down into.
platelets, .plasma, red. cells and
cryoprecipitate. These compo-.
nents help patients who need
surgery, patients with leukemia,
burn victims ',and hemophiliacs.
There are many different uses for
blood and blood components but
only one resource-humans.
Given such a positive
response, GT Comn hopes to make
available another blood drive in
the future as a community service
to the residents of Port St. Joe and
nearby communities.

Three "Year-Round" Tax


Savings Tips for Investors


Touch of Home


For Servicemen


By: Andy Wilkinson,
Financial Advisor
Many investors view tax plan-
ning as both tedious and confus-
ing. However, since just a few
minor changes to an investment
strategy may add up to significant
tax savings-every investor should
learn to manage his investments


with tax implications in mind.
To help guide investors
toward a more tax-efficient portfo-
lio, here are three simple strate-
gies:
Regularly Review Your Portfolio
Allocation
Determining the right asset
allocation among stocks, bonds,

and cash is one of the most
important decisions to make
when designing your portfolio.
Investors may reduce the tax
implications of their investments
by allocating incoming-producing
assets, which are subject to ordi-
nary income-tax rates (i.e., divi-
dends, interest, and short-term
capital gains), to a traditional IRA,
qualified plan, or Roth IRA.
Because of the long-term cap-
ital gains tax regulatiionr. assets
held.over 12 months ma, b' taxed
up to a maximum of 20% (10% .for
taxpayers in the 15% brackeL).
Sand if specific five year holding
rules are met, rates of 18% (8% for
taxpayers in the 15% bracket)
may be available, investors may
consider allocating growth invest-
ments, which usually generate
long-term capital gains, to taxable
accounts in order to benefit from
the lower long-term capital gains


ta-. rates.
Remember, assets held in an
IRA or qualified plan do not bene-
fit from the lower long-term capi-
tal gains tax rates because they
are taxed as ordinary income
upon distnbution.
Consider Your Rollover Options
S if you are retiring or changing
jobs, you will have to decide what
to do with the assets in your com-
pany's pension or 401(k) plan.
Your options include rolling
assets into an IRA, leaving them
in your current' employer's plan,
or taking a cash distribution.
If you choose to rollover your
retirement plan assets, you may
be eligible to convert a new or
existing traditional IRA into a
Roth IRA as long as your
adjusted gross income (AGI) does
not exceed $100,000 in the year of
conversion. You may find it bene-
, ficial to convert to a Roth' IRA
because distributions are, free of
federal, income, and penalty taxes
if taken after you have. reached
, age 591/2 and at least five tax
years after the account conver-
sion. Because there,are tax conse-
quences associated with this
conversion, you should consult
your' tax advisor before making
this decision.
If you anticipate receiving a
lump sum distribution from a
qualified plan containing the
stock of your employer, you may
reap significant tax savings
through a strategy involving "Net
Unrealized Appreciation." Your
Financial Advisor will be able to
provide details on this approach.
Don't Overlook Municipal Bonds
Tax-exempt municipal bonds
may be an excellent investment
for investors in a high income-tax
bracket. Typically issued to raise
funds to build or improve public
facilities, these bonds are debt
obligations of states, cities, towns,
municipalities. and municipal
authonises. A few noteworthy fea-.
tures of municipal bonds incl;UdajD
*state and local taxes for resi-'
' dents of the issuing states.
However, any capital gains will be
subject to taxes.
*The annual income produced
by a municipal bond can easily be
estimated, which helps' make
financial planning easier. For
some investors, this income will
subject to an Alternative
Minimum Tax (AMT). It is also
important to note that municipal
bonds are subject to the bond pre-
mium and market discount rules.
And ownership could impact the
taxation of Social Security bene-
fits.
*There are no penalties for
early withdrawal of invested
funds, and proceeds may be used
for any purpose.
Contrary to popular opinion,
tax planning does not have to be

this by distributing the quality-of-

around the United States. These
items are also used in the
American Red Cross "canteens".

Mute Shock of 9/11 Brings Hope


by Paula Clark
Many will gladly tell you where
they were or what they were doing
when they first heard about the
Twin Towers. I'll remember it
clearly for the rest of my life, but I
won't ever tell. Words such as
"horrific" and "tragedy" only allude
to describing what happened that


day. There are no words deep
enough, or complete enough, to
express the intensity of the
EVENT.
Sometimes events in our lives
render us mute, full of shock, reel-
ing with pain. We all have memo-
ries that we alone can stir up and
bring forth that can instill pain in

us all over again. Shared memo-
ries of pain have deeper roots,
sometimes more tangled, but often
more binding heart to heart.
I've thought more than once
that it would be fun to be a "fly on
the wall" and record all the stories
being spoken and unfolding in
daily lives that are direct results
from the 9/11 terrorist attack. I've
heard enough encouraging words
about human souls' reactions to
at least write a good short story,
even with my less-than-intact
memory, days after hearing such
stories.
I remember hearing Charley
on Good Morning America talk
about an owner of a shoe store
giving out brand new sneakers to
people walking OUT of the area
that day. Giving freely to raw need
when raw need happened by one
day. Inspirational, a small band-
aid to the wounded souls with no
small price paid to provide. As a
merchant, located on a main
street in a small town USA, just
the cost of giving out a small treat
to children for Halloween each
year can be.a cost to be budgeted,.
But to be there, where need lay',
and to unthinkingly give so freely,
touches my soul. I've carried that
little nugget around in my' head
for weeks now, and it still con-
founds mel That was a gift!
I heard about a ship fromn
Germany or England. now this is
where my memory begins to fail
me with particulars) that passed
an American ship and raised no,
its own country's flag but', an
Amencan nag at lHALF MAST as it
-passed by. I would guess there
have been countless untold sto-
ries of a, show of respect and
mutual mourning out there at sea
such as this. Now, where did they
get that flag out in the middle of
the sea? How many eyes were dry
on that American ship when it
happened?
Big business jumped in
quickly to help with fundraising.
Huge goals were set, and are all
being reached for or met. Ebay
and Paypal used their ability to
reach millions, quickly through
everyday transactions of com-
merce. Donations pour in from
everywhere to more organizations
than I could name if I tried. We all
find ourselves hoping most if not
all of those funds make it to their
destination. What has moved us
all to react, to respond, to ge4
involved, to share our resources?
PAIN. The sharing of pain is .
powerful communion.

England playing the Star
Spangled Banner at the changing
of the guard so soon after 9/11
struck me so poignantly. I visited
England when in high school. I
felt somewhat odd in their coun-
try. Their pride was very high and
their view of Americans somewhat
dim. I was just a teenager, aching
to see more of the world. Some in
England still carried pain over
events long passed, people long
ago dead. To my young percep-
tions, our fight for freedom
seemed to have a hollow ring in
their hearts. My visit was short
and I might have just met a few
unhappy folks. Yet, I walked away
feeling surprised. I was proud to
be an American then,' as I am
proud to be an American today. It
was my first experience realizing
not everyone on the planet
thought being an American was a
reason for pride. This act of soli-
darity from the English made so
public touched me to the marrow.
I later found a dear friend who
actually stood there and wit-
nessed the act in person. I-cried.
Speaking of tears, the country
has been crying. rivers together.
For people we don't know, have
never met. In our small town,
suddenly after 9/11, shopping
came to a standstill. We went from
dozens of customers on an aver-
age day to maybe a half dozen
friends or acquaintances stopping
in for a bnef visit. I could t com-
plain about sales being down,
because I understood why no one
felt like shopping. I, too, had .a
hard time thinking about any-
thing but the news. I've watched
more news in the last several
weeks than is normal for me.
When big ball games are post-
poned or called off, you know the
jugular vein, the central nerve of
the American people was hit.
My junk e-mail quota is up
again. What does that tell me? It
came right after people started
wandering back in to the shop to
spend money. Right after we had
a very good sale on a Thursday to
a postmaster in Georgia more
news came out about Anthrax-
through ,the mail. It saddens me
to think that the individual who,
helped me pay some bills this
month will have the added stress
of Anthrax to worry, about. My
mother lives where there are
police barricades on many streets,
armed men on many corners, and
fear abounids; She stocked up on
groceries and decided to settle in
as if a hurricane were coming.
She doesn't want to die of Anthrax
and lives close enough to the
actual cases that she has reason
for concern.
I get angry when considering
this. I recognize that our civil lib-
erties are being sacrificed for
safety. I may not complain about
sales being down, but I get angry
knowing that any small part of a
terrorist plan is still operating. I
don't blame or judge anyone. My
problems are all so very small in
comparison with the bigger pic-
ture. The bigger picture includes
people who have lost their lives,
loved ones, jobs, and who have
experienced irrevocable change to
American life.


I just can't talk much about
all that life lost. I was stunned to
realize a neighboring merchant
lost a brother at the Pentagon on
9/11. I knew this event hit fami-
lies all across America, .but I did
not realize our small town had
lost family there. I watched for
their faces in the crowd at the cer-
emony on 10/11 (I think it was)
honoring those who had lost loved
ones at the Pentagon. We often
focus on the World Trade Center
portion of the multiple tragedies,
not intending to leave others out.
The Pentagon loss is so unthink-
able. Plus it feels classified, some-
how. I don't think any of us intend
to forget or neglect remembering
those lost in D.C. that day. It's
just so unspeakable
Occasionally, I take one
thought and chew on it. This
thought? Whatever the terrorists
intended, God intervened and
changed. The theme about all
things working together for good
just keeps returning in my life. I
think the outcome of the tragedies
may border on what was planned,
but has a new twist. Unplanned,
we Americans! have banded
together to soothe our widespread
wounds. Patriotism, unity, and
Kindness, abound. A stranger
reaching out on an online forum
with kindness makes it easy to
touch lives far away. I see good
multiplying and it feels good.
Technology helps us grieve in uni-
son.
I received an e-mail telling of
the large percentage of empty
seats on the planes that were
used as instruments of death. It
also spoke of the small percentage
who actually died considering how
many were in harm's way and
could have perished. The actual
numbers were staggering! .-
Heroism is alive' and well in
America. Courage is now conta-
gious on airplanes. Even to the
death and the honor of a Purple
Heart awarded from the
President. Makes me wonder how
many angels were on duty 9/11.
Wouldn't you just love to see the
whole, picture of angelic activity'
that day? How many angels were
holding up that building in New


York? There wouldn't be a dry eye
on the planet
This morning, I thought I
heard my husband say my name.
I climbed reluctantly out of sleep.
It felt like mountain climbing, on
this day. He was asleep, gently
snoring. The call was in 'my
dreams. I couldn't go back" to
sleep. Beside me on the night-
stand was a book by a teacher we
know. It's full of his personal,
notes from the margins of. his
Bible. I've been meaning to read it
cover to cover for some time -now
and have only managed to per-use
portions from time to time. You
know how that isl Well, in leafing
through the book today a section
from the Book of Job jumped out
at me: Chapter 33, verses 15
through 23 but especially Verse
19. God's voice may be heard
three ways, according to this ,por-
tion of scripture. Doesn't' say
these are the only ways, mtnd
you, but three ways God speaks
that Job's friend wanted to share
with Job. One was in dreams.
The next was in PAIN. The third
was through a messenger. Often
since 9/11 I've felt an unspoken
thought well up inside ,me.
Personal experience has taught
me that hardship and tragedy are
the times I hear God speak" the
clearest. Being saved from death
once changed my life drastically
and turned my life direction a full
180 degrees. I can almost picture
God weaving a beautiful tapestry.
He's not wearing bifocals but I
must to look at His handiwork.
I hate to speak of good coming
from something so tragic. If my
loved one were on the casualty
list, I would not be able to feel
consoled by such thoughts ,or
words right now. Yet, standing
outside the circle of bereaved, I
feel a brotherhood, a communion
of souls, and the forming of a pur-
pose in the American heart. In
spite of the terrible actions of
man, God can' get our attention
through that pain. If we allow our
loving God free reign to forge His
heart into our lives, the outcome
from this senseless killing can
only transform our lives and our
country. :

Sweet Potato Queen



Is A Tremendous Hit!


The Junior Service League's
G.A.L.S Women Only symposium
has come and gone but the
sounds of the Sweet Potato Queen
can still be heard in homes and
offices around the, county and
beyond.. All those in attendance
were presented with a wonderful
array of door prizes, lunch, a
fashion show, and guest speak-
ers, Dr. Clell C. Warriner, PhD.
author of "He Eats His Sandwich
Upside Down" and Jill Connor
Browne, The Sweet Potato Queen.
Dr. Warriner was not the only
man brave enough to come to the
women's only-symposium. A poor
man from Destin drove a group'of
ladies to the event and was
dubbed the official "Spud Stud."
One of the highlights of the
luncheon was the introduction of
the Sweet Potato Queens' new
rivals, the Queen Bees. A.repre-
sentative of the Junior Service
League surprised the audience


with her proposed Queen Bee.
concept. Her ideas were well
received by the group, but if you
missed the symposium, you will
have to guess which Junior
Service League member is the
self-proclaimed Queen Bee. She is
currently taking applications for
Queendom. They can be mailed to
The Queen Bee, P.O. Box 114,
Port St. Joe,. Fl 32457.
Dr. Clell Warriner talked
about the vast differences
between men and women. He dis-
cussed how men absorb informa-
tion by what they hear. Men are
auditory creatures.. Women seem
to visualize a situation, then they
describe what they visualize.
Problems in communication seem
to occur because men cannot
understand what women visual-,
ize. The symposium audience
seemed to relate to Dr. Warriner's
assumptions and insights. If you
would like to purchase "He Eats


His Sandwich Upside Down"
please call 227-1111 or Dr.
Warriner's office, 785-3282.
Jill Conner Browne certainly-
made an entrance, bursting into
the room in full Queenly regalia.
Half the crowd seemed surprised,
the other half expected this grand
entrance. Self proclaimed Sweet
Potato Queen Wannabes from,
Destin, Tallahassee, Dothan,
Panama City, and all over the
south, came to the symposium
wearing crowns, and sporting
boas. Martha Sanborn could be
heard laughing quite frequently.,
She said, "It was the most inspira-
tional talk I have ever heard." Ms.
Browne invited everyone there to
Hal and Mal's Annual St. Patrick's
Day Parade. Many in attendance
are currently making plans to be
in Jackson, MS for, the event.
Queen enthusiasts are welcomed
and encouraged to log on the SPQ

Monumental Music!
About 100 people settled in their lawn chairs and on blankets Saturday afternoon to listen to
the "island music" of Stainless Steel at the Port St. Joe Junior Service League's "Monumental
Music" event held by the monument in Constitution Park. The crowd was treated to steel drums,
guitar, and vocals that ranged from the William Tell Overture to Elvis with a strong representation
from Jimmy Buffett 's music.

Shirley Cheatam has never sold a single shell by the seashore, but she sure does accumulate
them. While her husband is finding more room for plants on their small lot, she finds more ways
to decorate with shells.
Fish-bowls full of different varieties sit in her living room. Huge ones. Small ones. Colorful
ones. Hundreds just alike. And one-of-a-kind shells. Her husband, Cal, jokes that she has taken
over his shop where she cleans, polishes, drills and glues-what else-the shells! These castoffs
from the fishing industry are turned into beautiful 'Christmas tree ornaments, mirror frames,, and
more.

"I was raised on a farm and I guess I- always liked to grow
things," says Army Air Force (Ret.) Col. Cal Cheatam. And grow,
he does!
The part-time Mexico Beach resident makes good use of his
small plot, raising pineapple (17 of 'em), oranges, grapefruit, and
more-things he can't grow at the Cheatam's other home in
Rome, Georgia. While Col. Cheatam shows his pineapple, wife
Shirley displays the huge lemons they say can make five pies
each.

Relief Workers!
The Port St. Joe Elementary School students, represented
above by Karilynn Samuelson (left) and Davida Tschudi (right),
have been a little more thoughtful of the welfare of others since
September 11th, and put their thoughts into action by collecting
coins for the American Red Cross New York City/Washington,
D.C. Relief Fund. When the tally was taken the children had
given a total of $384.44 to help others.

"The only thing we have to fear
is fear itself." -President Franklin
Delano Roosevelt

We were not allowed in school
Friday, October 19, 2001. No one
was allowed to enter. We could not
go about our business as normal.
We were stripped of our right to
learn that day not by physical
threat but by fear.
Since September 'llth,
America has succumbed to the
invisible part of our enemy's plan:
fear. What was once a nation of
carefree travel and sublime. exis-
fence -has become one of, suspi-
cious delusion. Yes, some threats
are ,real. However, we CANNOT
cease to live. America was forever
changed, but change is what
America best embraces.
We are changing for the good
because of this tragedy. As a
nation, we -have stopped and
inventoried what really matters.
.Our common bond as Americans
holds stronger than the hate of our
enemy's futile attempt to break us.
Yet, throughout the nation, this
common bond is only weakened by
our fear.
Here in Port St. Joe we are
touched by its effects. just as every
citv in this country is., Last Friday,
we destined ouri safety
Appropriate actions were taken,
and we appropriately were seized
by fear. Our safety was the main
concern, and even though many
suspected a hoax, a silent outrage
.crept through our consciousness.
A month ago a bit of white powder
would simply have been brushed
away. But, in this time of terror,
school was brushed away instead.
Taking such extreme mea-
sures was the only choice in light
of recent events. Soon, however,
our nation will have plans to deal
with incidents such as this. Fear

Last week was a slow week for
news due to Fall Break and an
unfortunate ; incident that
required quarantining of the
school on Friday. Many thanks to
our school officials for acting
quickly to insure all was safe
before-our return. Hopefully, we
can continue classes normally
from now on.
Basketball teams have start-
ed with conditioning practice for
both seventh and eighth grade
boys and girls teams. Do not for-
get to show up on days your
coach tells you practice will be
held.
Remember that the PSJMS
cheerleaders are still selling
Christmas poinsettias for $10.
Get up with any cheerleaders or -
Ms. Juanise Williams if you would
like to place an order.
Any student who purchased a
yearbook from Port St. Joe
Elementary from the previous
year needs to c6me, by the office
and pick it up.
Beta Club members do not
forget that your party will be held
this Saturday, October 27. Get up
with Ms. Judy Williams or Katie
Hoffman if you have forgotten
what committee you are on, what
you are supposed to bring, where
it will be held, etc.
That's all the news for this
week. Hope, everyone enjoys
Halloween, and remember to look
for next week's article.

which lingers eventually eases,
