RedTide Is

Back In Area
i Red tide seems to be lurking
offshore from Gulf County once
again this yea.
According, to information
received from St. Joseph Bay
Aquatic Preserve Manager TammyN
Summers, some areas along St.
Joseph Peninsula have been lit-
teri-ed with dead menhaden, a few
mullet, and ladyfish.
This red tide bloom was first
detected approximately a month
ago by the Florida Research
Institute in St. Petersburg. It was
found offshore from Sarasota and
has since moved northward. On
October 9th, dead fish were found
oin St. George Island, and
Apalachicola Bay oyster bars were
iolbsed.
A fish kill at the St. Joseph
Peninsula was found on October
26th, after the bloom had moved
,westward and has been detected
:offshore from Cape San Blas in
high concentrations. (Water and
meat samples are taken by the
Department of Agriculture's shell-
fish laboratory personnel.).

Water Getting Boost


St. Joe Company Fronts $308,000 for Service and Tap Fees


The Highland View Water
System is fixing to receive a lot
more than the band-aid cures,
that have kept the aging water
system going in recent years.
commissioners have been
looking at making major repairs
to the water tower tank, but have
struggled with finding a solution
that would not force Highland
View's monthly water bills out the
roof of the old water tower.
The St. Joe Company is cur-
rently in the process of marketing
lots at WindMark Subdivision
(along St. Joseph Bay near Dixie
Belle Curve) and providing water
,services to residents in the devel-
opment-this turns out to be just
the match the water system need-
ed.
Gulf County Chief Adminis-
trator Don Butler, District 3
Commissioner Carl Fox, and St.
Joe Timberland President Clay,
Smallwood met to discuss the


issue, and ultimately the ,St. Joe
Company provided the shot in the
pocketbook necessary to make
the system upgrade possible.
St. Joe agreed to make a good,
faith payment of $158,000 in tap
fees for the 110 lot subdivision.',
this equals just over $1,400 per
lot for the fees.
Furthermore, the company'
contributed another $150,000 in
additional funds to also go toward :
the system upgrade.
The estimated cost for the'
system upgrade is $300,000.:
Items included are a 209.000 gal-
lon holding tank, hydropneu matic
tank and pumps, installation of
-the new additions, and demolition
of the old Highland View water
tank.
Currently, the Highland View
system is peaked out. serving 790
units. Water pressure should ide-
ally be in the 65 to 70 pound
range at the tower, but is closer to


40 pounds of pressure which is
considered to be low.
Once the new tank and
pumping system is in place, a
pressure range of 65 to ,70
pounds will be achieved utilizing
the hydropneumatic system. The
new holding tank's capacity is
three times greater than the old
tank's capacity of 65,000 gallons.
The hydropneumatic system
uses air pressure to achieve pres-
sure as opposed to the current
tower and tank system which
pumps water up in to the holding
tank atop the tower and uses
gravity to pressurize the water
lines.
This is very similar to the sys-
tem currently in use by White City
\Vater System customers.
Bids to demolish the old-
tower and tank will be opened at
the board's next meeting.
November 13th. The, board has
already ordered the 209,000 gal-
lon holding tank from a sole

source provider, Aquasource, and
will, go out for bids for the addi-


tional installation, pumps, and

Regulate Horses On The Beach .s .


Addresses Use, Regulations, Permits and Poop GT Com Elim"nates


One of the fastest growing
summer activities along the
beaches of Gulf County is horse-,
back riding along some of the
world's most beautiful beaches.
Businesses have sprung up
almost overnight to meet the
demand by visitors to enjoy this
activity. As is the case with most
beach activities. it seems one per-
son's pleasure infringes upon
another beachgoer's enjoyment,
so certain rules and restrictions
are often required.
Gulf County commissioners
are looking at addressing this
issue in an effort to preserve the
activity while addressing some of
the problems that have evolved.
County attorney Tim
McFarland handed out copies of a
sample/draft ordinance for the
board members to review for:
future discussions and considera-,
tion for adoption. The ordinance
would address equine use on cer-
tain coastal beaches within Gulf
County., regulate the use. estab-
lish a permit procedure, system
Tfor monitoring, limit beach access
points, establish rules for use of
equines on the beach and provide
for'penalties for failure to follow
the rules outlined in the ordi-
nance.
Gulf County is one of the few
places in the United States that a
person can enjoy horseback riding
on the beach. In fact, according to-
Julia Cunningham, owner -of
FantaSea Horseback Rides, Gulf
is one of only five places in the
U.S. that allows horseback riding


on the beach.
FantaSea and Broke-A-Toe
are the two local businesses that
are prqiding horseback rides in


This horseback ride on the beach
has always been our fantasy.'"

cooperating with the establish-
ment of the ordinance.
Both businesses have also
been very active in service to the
community, being involved in
such things as assisting in beach
clean-up, and taking recovering
burned children visiting the. area
for rides.
"The reason we named our
business FantaSea is because

back riding brings to the area.
Both vendors are currently
accessing the beach at Salinas
Park and according to
Cunningham they do so because'
the area is one of the least popu-
lated at the Cape. But, she went
on to say that most interactions
with beachgoers and area resi-
dents is extremely positive as
folks flock to the horses as they're
being ridden.
As in most cases, the problem
arises when people abuse the
privileges. Riding horses in a
manner that might endanger
beachgoers, riding on the sand
dunes, or even racing horses on
the beach can create problems by
damaging the environment or
endangering others.
The ordinance addresses
these activities and will require all
horse users to have permits, very,
similar to beach driving permits,
to access the beach.
One of the other major issues
addressed by the ordinance is
"poop" and other waste products,
from the horses. The ordinance
states that all horses shall be fit-
ted with a poop tailbag for the col-
lection of said waste product.
Furthermore, the user is respon-
sible for promptly, removing poop
from the beaches of Gulf Counrty
that is created by the horse which
they are riding.
Other restrictions are similar
to those outlined in the beach
driving ordinance and are put in
place to protect turtles, the envi-
ronment, and other beach users.
Various fines are also outlined
for failure to follow the ordinance.
Violators of the ordinance would
ultimately have their permit
revoked if they accumulate three
or more violations. i

Toll Charges Nov. 1


Calling your friends, family
and business associates is about
to become easier and less expen-
sive.
GT Corn announced today
that, effective November 1, they
will eliminate traditional long dis-
tance charges between each of the
communities they- serve in
Calhoun, Franklin, Gulf and
Liberty counties and portions of
Bay, Decatur, Gadsden and
Jackson counties.
The new plan, known as
extended calling service, will elim-
inate the need for "1+" dialing
between the affected areas and
allow residential customers to
place calls between communities
for just S.25 per call-regardless of
the duration. Business customers
will pay just S.10 for the first
minute and $.06 for each addi-


tional minute. For example, all
residential calls from Port St. Joe *-
to Apalachicola will now cost only
$.25. A five-minute business call
%will cost just $.34.
"Over the past several years
we have experienced steady
growth in both residential and
business customers in our serv-
ing area," said John Vaughan.
President of GT Corn. "Along with
that growth has come increased
calling volumes between these
communities. By upgrading our
network with fiber optic cable to
handle the increased call volume
we have reduced our. costs and
are passing the savings on to our
customers," Vaughan said.

"Christmas In The


Gardens" Nov. 10th


The Port St. Joe Garden Club
and Heart's Desire Florist are
pleased to announce the first
annual "Christmas In The
Gardens", a seminar on decorat-
ing for the holidays on Saturday;
November 10. This .exciting new
holiday tradition ushers in the
season in an afternoon filled with
Christmas spirit, scrumptious
refreshments and a host of ideas,
presentations and tips on creating
the perfect holiday look for your
home.
The event, a fundraiser for the
Garden Club, was the brainchild
of Terry Gingerich of Heart's
Desire. Having recently presented
a similar workshop for a friend,
she decided that a holiday-
themed event, open to the public,
could benefit the Garden Club
and be fun for the community.
Gingerich says the focus will be
on ideas such as using what one
has on hand to achieve a festive
look, going beyond the traditional
red and green color scheme for
Christmas and decorating within
a wide rande of budgets. She
emphasizes that holiday decorat-
ing doesn't have to be costly and
will demonstrate a variety of deco-
rating methods and accessories
she terms "from Dollar Store to
Tiffany's." Fun, easy and unique
ways of making your home glow
with Christmas spirit, including
ideas for table settings, mantels
and even the front door will be
discussed and demonstrated.
Garden Club members will
contribute to the Christmas
theme, providing refreshments,


such as spiced teas, specialty cof-
fees, baked goods and other sea-
sonal goodies. The menu is still in
the planning stage, but attendees
can look forward to a special
treat. In the words of'club presi-
dent Zebe Schmitt, "We reserve
the right to decide at the last
minute what would be the most
wonderful surprise we could
make for our guests. It is the kick-

Let's Don't


Miss The Boat

I have gotten the opportunity to visit the mill site and old impound-
ment area on several occasions over the past weeks and months.
One of the things which have most impressed me is .the extent of
openness and frankness that property owners have exhibited as they
reviewed and discussed the property and any possibility that there
might be some contamination discovered at the sites.
Both Smurfit-Stone Container Comrrpany and the St. Joe Company
seem anxious to get through the testing and sampling of the sites and
move on to the next step. Both owners have also bent over backward to
remove any possible shadow of doubt that there could.be any misrep-
resentation of the true environmental status of the sites by separating
themselves from the process.
The Department of. Environmental Protection (DEP) and
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) representatives have been on
hand at the site and DEP representatives have closely monitored the
,process and taken split,-samplings for them to evaluate independently
from the consultant teams doing the actual sampling and testing.
I must confess to giving the regulatory agency, DEP, a hard time on
more than one occasion over the years. But, this is certainly an exam-
ple of an agency doing its job while also doing its best to help put a com-
munity in a position to rediscover its economic potential.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the old mill site
can and probably does hold the keys to a major economic engine for all
of Gulf County and surrounding areas-just.as the paper mill had for
so many years prior.
Everyone who attended any of the public workshops surrounding
the Port Plan and Master Study could easily see the potential the area
holds as a viable deep water port. One of this area's greatest natural
amenities is the fact that we've been blessed with one of the finest nat-
ural deep water ports anywhere around.
In talking with the study consultants doing the Pbrt Master Plan, it
seemed a little hard for them to understand exactly why some of the
potential for the port has not already been met. The demographics of
being geographically located as a potential hub for shipping to and from
the entire eastern portion of the nation from areas of Mexico and
Central America just makes unbelievably good sense. ;
The Port Authority is in the process of developing and refurbishing
the old port facilities at the end of First Street where it meets St. Joseph
Bay. The old warehouse has been demolished and work will soon begin
on the seawall and other infrastructure needs for the port. They are
leasing this site from the St. Joe Company. .. ..
This is just the first step though; in order for the port to reach its
full potential, it will require much. much more area than is avalble at
the First Street site.
It is no deep, dark secret that the Port Authority will be seeking to
possibly purchase the mill site from Smurfit-Stone for the purpose of
expanding the port. Now, I have no idea where those negotiations are,
or for that matter if contact has even been made to begin negotiations
for purchasing or leasing the property.
I guess what I am trying to say here is when the site is cleared by
DEP and Smurfit-Stone is ready to liquidate the property,, I hope the
Port Authority is at .the top of the list of people it negotiates with on the
land. Gulf County and the surrounding communities need good paying
jobs. Port development could bring those jobs to-a community which
needs badly for its ship to come in. .
It is obvious that there are very, few places for a port site to locate
in St. Joseph Bay. In fact, you could almost say if it's not at the mill site
location, then future port development will be stifled for, lack of a place
to go.
I would encourage folks throughout the community to actively sup-
port the Port Authority In this endeavor in any and every way they can.
I would also hope that the St. Joe Company will throw its full measure
of support into the efforts.
Lastly, I believe the Smurfit-Storie Container- Company has been
most honorable in its dealings with this community during some very
difficult times in the paper industry. I firmly believe it wants our com-
munity to recover from the loss of the mill's operations, and I hope it
will make that statement very plain for all to see by the way it eventu-
ally deals with the mill site property.


Hfieh r Dow1c4 With Ker4 by Kesley Colbert


For the Love of th
F-..i bantered about as if they were ty years with the San Diego
about to suit up. Folks are cunous Padres. That's the Tony Guy-nn
as to the chances of the upstart who won eight National League


We're right in the middle of the
World Series. The emphasis is on'
Arizona's two dominating pitchers.
And there is the usual references
to the Yankee mystique. Ruth,
Gehrig, DiMaggio and Mantle-are


Diamondbacks unseating me
world champs ....
And that is how it should be.
But I don't want you to miss a
very special and most unusual
happening ii the baseball world.
Tony Gwynn has accepted the job
, as head baseball coach at San
Diego State.
Yep, that's the same Tony
Gw.nn who just retired after twen-


batting titles, snagged live gold
gloves, banged out 3.141 lifetime
hits. hit .394 in 1994. and finished
with a career batting average of
.338. He is five years away from
the Hall of Fame.
He and Jackie Burns were the
absolute best two-strike hitters
that I ever saw. He had that short
bat and such a sweet swing!
But as is usually the case. the


ie Game
statistics don't come close to the'
real story .
Now, I've never met Tony.
Gwynn. I only saw him play one:.
time in person. And I was so fai-
out m the center field bleachers-
that I could barely make out his:
familiar crouch and the number:
19 that he wore during his entire:,
career. But I do follow the gatno-
with a passion that only a peison
who has wrapped black electncian
tape around a walnut and driven it
over a garage wall that lookedd"'
like Yankee stadium could under'
stand!
Tony Gwynn was a happy
baseball player. And I don't mean:
happy if the Padres won ;: and-
happy if he got 3 hits and happy
when he won a batting title. I'm
telling you, 'Tony Gwyvnn Was:;
happy to be a baseball player!
You ever see them interview~;:
him before a game, he was smiling
You ever see him interviewed after'
the game, he was smiling! You see
the in-camera visit to his home,
during the off season, he was, smnil-,
ing!
Now, you might think it waS-
the money. He made a fortune tak.-
ing two strikes and then inside-:
outing one past the third baseman
to drive in the go-ahead run! But,
at the height of his career,, he'
accepted a whole lot less money
than the market was throwing.
around to stay in San Diego. He"
said at the time that he liked the;
town and the fans had been good:
to him. Name a-few big leaguers-
around today that re-up-with their
old team because "the fans have
been loyal."
He could easily take his mil-;
lions and retire to Tahiti. He does-:
n't have to hit alick at a snake the
rest of his life. He has got enough
money to burn a wet mule. He can
ride life out on easy street .'.;
He took a college coaching job!
And he was thrilled! You could see
it in his appearance, hear it in his
voice, feel it in hisismile.
He's either completely nutE-dv,
he likes baseball even more tht
do!
You think a minute about
nineteen year old, left handed,
sophomore relief pitchers! You talk
about wild and unpredictable!
Listen, their own mothers don't
understand them. Why do you'
think they found a college 500
miles from the house to send him
to ....
I've been to zoos that housed
saner animals!
You toss in your usual priia
donna center fielder, a .catcher who
can't throw, a stone handed third
baseman and a designated hitter
who can be out, thought by a rock
and you're getting a glimpse of
what Tony is running into; .
He's accustomed to flying to
his away games. First class. He is
used to club house boys and road
managers handling his luggage.'

Dr. Albert Ward, a Sport.:.


IT'S FLU, SHOT time. in Flori-
da, and I had to get mine Thurs-
day. My doctor, Dr. Curry, didn't
have the flu vaccine this year; he
told.me I would have to go to the
Gulf County Health, Department
,this year to get my shot.
I saw in Thursday's 'paper
where Dr. Oksanen had. the vac-
cine to give, but I had already
made my appointment, by then,
to get the shot at the health
department.
That was the first time I had
ever gone to the health depart-
ment for medical services. It has
been here for many years, but I
had never used its services.
It's just like. a regular doc-
tor's office-wait and alll
My appointment was for 9:30
and I received my shot at 10:30.
To their benefit, the shot didn't
hurt and Medicare paid for it ...
good old Medicarel

THE HEALTH Department
building was named after the late


Dr. Albert Ward, but there wasn't
a picture of him on the wall any-
where that I could see. \
I hope the new health depart- ,
ment building, which will be
occupied in the next couple of
weeks, will carry the same name
and have a photo of Dr. Ward in a
conspicuous place for all to see.
I have not heard anyone say,
but it would be entirely appropri-
ate for the new building to carry
the name of "Dr. Albert L. Ward
Health Department." Just .like
the present building is named.
I'm one of the remaining few
citizens in this town ,who went to
Dr. Ward when his office was in


. and a Darn Good Docto


the rear of Miller's Drug Store,
which was located in the building
currently occupied by J. Patrick's
Restaurant on Reid Avenue.
Dr. Ward held forth from this
point with his medical practice.
beginning in the very late 1930s.
He stayed there until he built his
office which was more recently
occupied by Dr. Joe Hendrix,
after Dr. Ward's death.

DR. WARD WAS a Sport-for
lack of a better description-and
a darn good doctor to boot!
Dr. Ward made house cAlls in
an old Lincoln Zephyr coupe-
which was the envy of half the


young boys in town, including
mel
Mrs. Virginia Owens was his
receptionist for many years. She
died recently.
She was the wife of "Tommy"
Owenis, who was Gulf County's
school superintendent for many
years. They lived at the corner of
Long Avenue and llth Street and
led' all the "promenades" of the
junior-senior proms, which were
held in the Centennial Building.
"Tommy" graduated from
Port St. Joe High School and
played football with the "Florida
"Gators" before Steve Spurri-
er.
Dr. Ward was mixed up in a
lot of history around here during
his practice years. His widow,
Mrs. : Monica.. Stone. 'still lives.
here. They had. three daughters.
whom my wife used to "baby sit"
with, when she was a teenager.

'HE WA9 A REAL "country
doctor" for all the years he prac-


ticed and appreciative citizens
',put his name on a lot of things
that had to do with medicine.
Both the health department and
"the hospital, were named after
him.
The hospital doesn't use his
name as their own anymore, but
they have his picture hanging in
the lobby.
The health department con-
tinues to use his fiame-in the
present building at least;. but
they don't have a picture of him
hanging in' the lobby.
I hope 'they will rectify that"
oversight when they occupy their
new building.
o ,"Of course, our two recently
.retired doctors and our present
corps of doctors are meeting 6dur
needs in later years, but Dr.
Ward had the distinction of being
nearly the first.
I say "nearly" because I
remember when Dr. Bartee prac-
ticed in the rear of the former
LeHardy's Drug Store which later


r to Boot!


became Smith's Drug Store. Dr-
Bartee would:, minister to your
needs wherever you happened to
see him-in his office or on the
street corner!

WHILE WE'RE ON the sub
ject; how many of you remember
where the first Gulf Counl
Health Department was located?
I'm talking about the first perma-
nent location now.
Years ago, before, the present
.brick structure' was. built, 'the
health department headquarters
was located on Sixth Street, near
the corner in a small white build
ing, that was formerly a dwelling
house (a small one at that).
We're .obsessed with protect-
ing ourselves from anthrax &id
smallpox; I remember being
inarched downtown from the
schoolhouse to eteI,former Flori'-
da Power building to receive mi
smallpox vaccination.

Major league meal money is up to
several hundred dollars a day now.
Can you picture Tony Gwynn
sitting in the front of. the bus,. eat-
ing a prefabricated hamburger out
of a sack . his suitcase, hang
up bag, briefcase and video
machine piled into the seat next to
him! This is their. first trip to
Fresno State and they've already
made six wrong turns. His first
baseman and best hitter missed
the bus. The game is scheduled to
start in less than an hour. One of
his left handed relievers 'is yelling
from the back, "Take a right at the
next light, Coach. Trust me!"
Those airplanes had air condi-
tioning. And radar.
And then he's, got to teach
them hodw to hit like he did. Now,
that will be the challenge. folks
with his kind of ability, his work
ethic, his dedication to the game
don't grow on trees.
I've already heard some say
that he won't last a season. Don't
you bet on it!
' Here's what Tony Gwynn
Understands better than most of
this generation. It's a round ball
against a round bat. It's sixty feet-
six inches. It's chalk lines and fork
balls. It's three strikes and a cloud
of dust. It's taters and Texas lea-
guers. It's Jesse Gonder and pow-
der ri\er. It's timeless. Wonderful.
Most of the big leaguers I've
observed lately couldn't have
played with us back at our old field
by the pajama factory. They com-
plain about the travel and the
weather arid the umpiring and the
money and the front office and day
games after a night contest and
the manager and the bus nde from
the hotel and . Shoot, they
wouldn't have lasted an inning
with a taped up walnut!
Tony' Gwynnr, would have fit
nrght in. W\Ve loved the guys who,
"came early and stayed late." He
would have pitched, ,caught,
played right field, brought water
up from the spring.. whatever
it took to keep the game moving.
I would have chosen him first.
And we both would have been
grinning from ear to ear as he
headed to the on deck circle....
Respectfully,

class participated in their garden-

It's Thursday at 12:35 p.m.
and we've entered the class. By
1:15 another group of students,
too, have entered the class.
"What's the big deal?", you ask. It
doesn't take a real detective to fol-I
low our trail back to the source of
our problem. We have plenty of
evidence. Forty human feet leav-
ing the evidence-we've been to the
garden and left a trail of dirt and
compost all the way into the class.
Add a little moisture to that and
you have a.real mess. This is not
good! The students would hur-
iedly sweep it up (to some degree)
and head to the buses.
I am happy to say that we are
no longer leaving a dirt/compost
trail behind us. Thanks to the
generosity of David and Willie
;Roche of Holland-Roche Design.
we purchased rubber garden
boots for the students.. We now %
enter our class trail-free.
This week as we entered the
garden our hearts were happy and
our feet were prepared to handle
the dirt. (See adjacent photo) We
planted our collards, turnips,
broccoli, and 'strawberry plants.
We are excited about our transfor-
mation of the land as we prepare
for our future harvest.
Please continue to join us as:
we take our learning to the out-
doors and learn through our envi-
ronment. These students will have
a knowledge base to produce
crops for:us in the future. Watch
our garden grow with us in the

Chattahoochee's Fall Fest On the River


We Have Awakened

A Sleeping Giant
I have a book written by for-
mer Japanese Admiral. of World
War 2, Hiroyuki Agawa. It is a
biography of Japanese Admiral
Yamamoto, Supreme Commander
in Chief of the Imperial Japanese
Navy in World War 2; ,,
He ,was. the planner of the
bombing and destruction of the.
U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbor Dec. 7,
1941. Later as his fleet sailed
.back to Japan he told members of
his cabinet, "We have awakened a
sleeping giant." And awaken us he
did. We pursued him throughout
the South, Cefitral and North:
Pacific.
In Sep. 1945, as I looked
across Tokyo Bay from our
anchorage, I saw snow capped Mt.
Fuji and my thoughts were, this is
the culmination of four years of
war, I had no feeling as bravado, it
was just the finish.
Now again this sleeping giant
has been awakened and he will
look into every hole in the ground,
under every leaf and in all of Bin
Laden's fnends houses till he
finds who he is looking for and
then bring them out into the sun-
Sshie.
Harry Orrell
Mexico Beach

Disagrees With

Article on Maps
Dear Editor:
In response to the article,
"Mexico Beach Strengthens
Development Code". this article is
a cover upl
The real reason for changing
the development code is that the
City of Mexico Beach produced a
computer version of the official
land use map and made at least
one mistake. The City then relied
on this unofficial version to grant
a developer permission to con-
struct town houses on a city lot
that was not zoned for town'
houses. Now. rather than bringing
the mistake before the public the
City is trying to cover it up by
"creating a City Zoning Map".
There is no need to create a
city. zoning map since one is
already in existence. It was offi-
cially adopted by the City Council
about ten years ago. This map has
been used for many years without
confusion and misapplication.
Now the City wants to adopt a new
map to cover up the mistake. Why
doesn't the City bnng the matter
into the sunshine and proceed
from there?
The City also wants to change
the city's development regulations
to make them "more consistent
with each other". However, the
city provides no details on the
inconsistencies. There have never
been any inconsistencies con-
; cerning what can be developed on
the various lots and parcels in
Mexico Beach. If any inconsisten-
cies have ever existed they would
have surfaced years ago. Over the
years property owners have come
up with many imaginative things
that they wanted to do with their
properties. And the Planning and
Zoning Board and the City
Council have always relied on the
existing regulations to handle
them effectively. What is the real
reason for changing time-tested
and proven regulations?
The article goes on to state
that "height and other building
requirements should be easier to
enforce by the City under the lan-
guage of the new ordinance". The
current ordinance allows only two
heights in the city. one for com-
mercial and one for residential.
Drawings submitted to the City
for approval are checked for
height and disapproved if the
height requirement is not met.
Where is the difficulty in enforcing
the height requirement? Also note
that the City provides no details
on the "other building require-
ments". The article states that,
"This ordinance is not about


changing the land development
regulations but about closing
some loopholes in our zoning reg-
ulations in order to control future
land use". The Mayor continues to
talk about loopholes, but what are
the loopholes? The Mayor. talks
about not permitting high rises in
Mexico Beach; the land develop-
ment regulations already prohibit
the building of high rises.
The article is also mixed up
on maps. The City has an official
map that has been relied on for.
years for existing land use infor-
'mation. Some cities such as Port
St., Joe have a future land use
map and this map depicts what
the city would like to do with the
different areas in the city should
the opportunity arise in the
future. Such a map Indeed "is a
picture' of where a community
wantis to be in five to ten years".
These maps are created along
with the development of what is
called a City Vision Plan. For
example, a map of this nature
could show where Mexico Beach
would like to put athletic fields.
Then as land and money became
available the City would already
have a plan for development of
athletic fields. The zoning map
currently in use by the City does
not show any future development
such as an athletic field. The cur-
rent map. has always been used to
decide what can be d6ne with any
property in Mexico Beach today.
The article would have you
believe that the City does not have
a zoning map and this "proposed
amendment was necessary to
establish a zoning map separate
from a future land use map". As
explained above, the City has no
future land use map so how can
there be a separation of maps?
As a property owner in Mexico
Beach I am very concerned about
any major changes being made to
the existing Land Development
Regulations and the associated
map, particularly when they have
served so well over the past ten
years. Also, the City particularly
needs a time-tested land develop-
ment regulation and map since
there are major developments
about to take place in and around
Mexico Beach. I am even more
concerned about the cover up, Pat
was the basis of this proposed
amendment and those Council
members that are planning to
adopt it during the next council
meeting the second Tuesday in
November.
Councilman David A. Miller


In Response
Dear Editor:
In response to a letter to the
editor, submitted by Mr. David
Miller which appeared in The Star
on October 18 of this year, I
respectfully disagree with his
evaluation of the proposed
changes to the land use ordinance
of the City of Mexico Beach. These
changes in no way relax or give
builders any"additional freedom.
Changes to a future land use
map is, a natural and necessary
function of city government espe-
cially when growth is eminent.
Change or progress for some Is
like a three-headed giant. For
example 150 years ago in a letter
from Martin Van Buren to
President Jackson, Van Buren
said, "The canal system of this
country is being threatened by the
spread of a new form of trans-
portation known as "railroad." He
continues on with. "As you may
well know, Mr. President. "rail-
road" carriages are pulled at the
enormous speed of fifteen miles-
per-hour, roar and snort their way
through the countryside setting
fire to crops, scaring the live
stock, and frightening our women
and children. The Almighty cer-
tainly never intended that people
should travel at such break neck
speed."
Should we stop the train? I
THINK NOT.
Yours truly,
David Thompson, Jr.

Buccaneers Pirate Superbowl

Victory 22-6 in Apalachicola


Avenging two previous losses
to Apalachicola this season, Port
St. Joe's 11 & 12 year old
BBuccaneers traveled to Franklin
' :County last Thursday and
returned with a 22-6 victory over
the Apalachicola Little Sharks and
a Superbowl title for the second
year in a row. The Bucs' finished
the year with a record of five wins
and two losses.
On the first play from scrim-
mage following the opening kick-
off, Buccaneer corner back
Desaun North stripped the ball
from the Apalachicola running
back and raced 45 yards for a
touchdown and the initial score of
the game. With Antonio Peterson
holding for the point after, Corbin
Vickery successfully completed
the PAT. A stout defense led by
the front line of Dawson Gillespie,
Charlie Pearsall, Logan Wilson,
Melvin Martin, and Ricardo
Clemons 'held the Apalachicola
offense in check the entire first
half. Ramon Beard also performed
well at linebacker, intercepting a
pass and keeping the score 8-0 at
halftime.
Late in the third quarter,
Apalachicola drew blood and
scored on a long run from scrim-
mage. The extra point was no
4' good and the score was '8-6. On
the ensuing drive, the Buc-
caneers, behind excellent block-
ing from the offensive line of J.D.
Strayer, Todd Lawrence, Gillespie,
Vickery, and Wilson began a long
drive. With quarterback Beard at
the controls, running backs Chaz
S Byrd, Jarquez Whitley, and North
all made good power runs, with
Beard running a bootleg to cap off
the drive with a touchdown from
15 yards out. Vickery's PAT was
good and the Bucs led 16-6.
The Bucs' defense took the
field and with strong play from
defensive backs 'David Walker,
Steve Fennell, Peterson. and
North were able to hold the Little
Sharks and get, the ball back to
"the Bucs' offense. Behind a strong.
line search and with a fine lead
'block from Byrd and Clemons,,
North took a handoff up the mid-
dle of the defense and scored the


final touchdown of the game on a
55 yard run..The PAT was no good
and the final score was 22-6.


The Bucs were coached by
Keith L. Duke Jones, Curtis Ray,
Steve Fennell, and John Strayer.


Coin toss starts the Superbowl at Coach Wagoner Stadium in

.JaguarsFrom Page 10A


went off tackle untouched for the
SPAT.
With 5:13 left in the half, the
Tiny Sharks finally got on the
board. Joseph Jones tried a sweep
to the left side. Hemmed in by
defensive end Chase Watford and
linebacker Langston he cut back,
broke two tackles and with a great:
individual effort went 45 yards for
the score. The PAT attempt was
unsuccessful.
The.Jaguars came right back.
Smith scored again on an eighty
,yard run to top off a drive that
included a nine-yard gain by
Langston, 12 yards by Sander and
a 25 yard scamper by ,Smith.
Langston went up the middle for
the PAT making the score 20 to 6.
; .The. second half was a PSJ
defensive show. Sander saved a
TD with\ a great tackle when
Apalach QB Fonda Davis looked
like he was gone on a naked
'reverse. Tan Smiley made a leap-
ing defense of a long pass that, if
caught, would have been a sure
TD. Great defensive line play by
Dylan Jackson, Brandon Strick-
lapd, Josh Henderson, Mookey
S Little, Zack LaRue, Krystian
Kelley and Allen "Slammer" Dykes
kept the Apalach offensive off bal-
ance. Defensive ends Watford and
Victor Quintanilla kept the Tiny
Sharks' sweeps turned in. Victory
:was nailed down when Langston
'intercepted' a Tiny Shark pass on
the last play of the game.
The PSJ offense was not idle
in the second half either despite
not scoring. Strong blocking by
linemen Quintanilla, Strickland,
Trey Humphrey, Evan Branch
'and Smiley kept the big Apalach
linemen and linebackers off the
running backs. PSJ almost scored
twice, once when a drive stalled at
the Apalaclf six-yard line and
another when a long scoring run
'by Langston was called back
,because of a questionable clipping
call.
This is a team that should feel
very good about themselves. At
the beginning of the season they
were not expected to repeat as
champs. The boys worked very
hard in practice to be the best
they could be. Head Coach David
Davis and his assistants had the
team well prepared for every
opponent they faced. The end
result was success.


Buccaneer cheerleaders are excited over their team's second
consecutive Superbowl win.


Peevy Wins In

Georgia MX Series
Matt Peevy from Port, St. Joe
won big on his Team Green
Kawasaki to take second overall in
his class in Macon over the week-
end .in the "Best of Georgia MX
Series."
In the first moto, Matt had to
settle for fourth place as he got
caught up with the second and
third place racers from Georgia.
,*Matt battled the entire race to get
in front of the second place racer
to go after the leader, but ran out
of time as he just could not get by.
It was a different story in the last
moto of the day. Matt took fourth
in the "hole shot" as he rode on
the back wheel for about 40
yards. Then by the first turn he
had jumped up to second place.
Riding very aggressively and
defensively, halfway into the first
lap, Matt jumped by the leader as
he passed him in the air and the
rest was history. There was no
contest! By the last lap, Matt had
a very comfortable 19-second lead
in front of the second place rider
and coasted over the finish line to
take 1st place. "It felt great to be
out front that far and be able to
race my own race," says Matt. "I
had never been to Paradise MX
Park before and I was able to beat
those Georgia guys on their own
track and that felt great! I was a
little worried earlier that morning
because we did not really get to
practice because it was 28
degrees and everything was
frozen, including my hands." said
Peevy.
'Matt Peevy, Rodney Allen, and
Jason Corbell are also racing in
the Southeast MX Fall Series
which includes Fountain. Milton,
and Newton, Alabama. Allen just
competed in a Free Style event in
Panama City, showing the crowd
his amazing skills on how to pull
off a highflying "Heel Clicker" and
"Can Can".

Invest In Your Children


Investment View by: Andy
Wilkinson Financial Advisor
Teaching 'our children to
invest has tremendous value that'
will be illustrated on the first day
of their first corporate job.,
Because many young workers'
have no knowledge of investing
when asked to make decisions
regarding a 401(k) plan. they
often choose not to participate.
However, those with investing
experience typically have both the
knowledge and confidence to save
and select wisely.
Nothing teaches kids about
investing better ffthan actual e.xpe-
rience. And learning to invest in
teen years has significant benefits
over waiting until adulthood.
Teens have a long-term investing
horizon, more room for trial and
error, minimal living expenses,
and time to move from simple
investing concepts to more com-
plex options as they grow.
By the time children reach the
age of 13, they understand most
of the concepts they'll need to
make their first investment. They
have the math skills needed to
evaluate stock prices and know
the names and reputations of
many company products. -
Before introducing your child
to the market, it's important to
explain the purpose of investing
and some of the terminology
they'll need to know right away.
Keep it simple. Suggest to your
child the idea of buying a portion
or "share" of a company they
know and like, and explain that
businesses grow when they have
good products and people. Now,
pick a company.
While portfolio diversification
is critical for adults, children may
want to start by focusing on just a
few individual stocks. Once they
understand more about stocks,
bonds, and market volatility, they
will be better prepared to under-
stand the value of diversification
and different investment vehicles
such as mutual funds.
Children will often focus on
companies whose products or ser-
vices they know. McDonalds',

companies to consider based on
your child's taste and ability to
understand a business. Decide
together what level of risk is
acceptable and add rruld levels of
research-such as looking at web
sites-so your child begins to
understand that there is more to
most companies than the ham-
burgers or dolls they may sell.
i Check with your financial
advisor before deciding to pur-
chase any stock. Many brokerage
firms offer special 'family' or
"children's" programs to help your
child get started, while keeping
down costs'. Custodial accounts
and kid-oriented mutual funds
may be worth considering for
larger investing projects.
After buying the stock, keep
kids involved. You can watch
investments together as prices
fluctuate and markets change.
Children can also pay attention to
changes in product lines, new
advertising, and news announce-
ments about "their company."
Every few months you might ask if
they think the company's
prospects are still good. You may
also connect their investment to a
goal with a specific time horizon.
When introducing children to
investing, it's also important to
expect mistakes and keep the
stakes reasonable, based on dis-
cretionary savings. There is no
purpose in making anyone's first


investment a potential determi-
nant to the child s financial
future. Moderate purchases will
give you the comfort to allow your
child to make decisions and take
risks.
As years progress, your child
can explore decisions and oppor-
tunities with a professional finan-
cial advisor. And when the first
day of their first job comes and a
401(k) form is slipped onto your
child's desk, you can both feel
confident that your child is well
prepared. ,

Drug Tolerance What
fDoes It Mean?
The word tolerance when applied to drugs is not par-
ticularly a good thing. For, it can mean that over a period of
time our body has become adjusted to a medicine and the
* drug will no longer achieve the desired effect it once did.
This tolerance effect can apply to many types of com-
mon use drug products-laxatives, cough preparations, skin
treatment creams, and ointments. With prescription medi-
cines the tolerance effect can be even more serious. We will
always caution you when such a possibility exists.

Hundreds of children and their parents congregated to Reid Avenue Tuesday evening to participate
in the "spooktacular" Halloween on Reid celebration put on by the Constitution City Business

from each age group. Winners in the 10-12 age group were Alexa Protsman as a geisha girl and Tommy
Hill as a fishing clown. Kaylee Armstrong's witch costume and Austin Williams' slice of pizza were
winners in the 7-9 group. Jaden Grantland as a scarecrow and Lexie Strickland as an angel won in the

Liles is responsible for the admin-
istration of the 62 high schools
that comprise area seven, mostly
in the state of Florida. The schools
are inspected in areas of person-
nel, supply, and finances.
Port St. Joe High School did
very well at the annual inspection.
Part of the requirement was for
every cadet to ,pass a personal
inspection and the unit to have a
drill team performance and con-
duct a pass-in-review. There were
many cadets who were so impres-
sive in their personal appearance
that Cmdr. Liles awarded them
Exemplary Personal Appearance
nbbons. Receiving ribbons were
cadets Lisa Floyd, Rushelle
Lamboy, Austin Horton, Ashley
Sanders. Terry Anderson, Kendall
Hicks. Hillary Van Zant, Ricky
Farmer. Kris Searcy. Simon
Collins. Brandon Stitt. Ashley
Webb. Jessica Williams, and
Damon Eaker.
In attendance at the annual
inspection were many parents,

including Supt. of Gulf County
Schools Jerry Kelley. school board
members Dr. Mary Pridgeon,
Charlotte Pierce, Linda Wood, and
Billy C. Quinn, Jr.

The Meritorious Achievement rib-
bon is the highest recognition a
cadet can receive in the program.
It is awarded for a specific act of
citizenship, courage or initiative.
The citations that were pre-
sented with the ribbons stated
that the cadets had distinguished
themselves by the responsibility
and initiative to report, via 9-1-1,
smoke in the vicinity of the Port
St. Joe Elementary School. If the
cadets had not taken the initiative
and acted quickly the school
would have suffered major fire
damage. Their vigilance, under-
standing of an emergency situa-
tion, and commitment to the com-
munity diverted a major catastro-
phe. Their outstanding leadership
and contribution significantly
impacted the outcome of this haz-
ard and the effectiveness of the
fire department.
The citations further stated
that their meritorious achieve-
ment reflected great credit upon
themselves, their unit. and the
Naval Junior Reserve Officer
Training Corps.
MgySgt. Howze, Naval Science
Instructor at Port St. Joe High
School, stated that no cadet has
earned this ribbon in his twelve
years of teaching there. As far as
he knows, the Meritorious
Achievement ribbon hasn't been
earned by any cadet in the 25

This is an Open Letter to the Citizens of Mexico Beach
Election day is close at hand and many of you have heard from the four
candidates who are contending for the two councilman seats that are available
this year. Now it is YOUR turn to be heard by casting your vote Nov. 6. Before
casting your vote, reflect on the direction our city council has steered us and
will take us under the leadership of our present mayor.
Please consider our record as you vote:
The hiring of a new city administrator and clerk.
Addressed and corrected the 2000 audit findings that now puts our city
in full compliance with state statutes.
Established a balanced budget for the fiscal year 2001.
City employees have researched and developed a specification that will
save the city approximately $30,000 in engineer fees.
The mil rate has been lowered thus avoiding a tax increase.
Lowered the city insurance cost by $25,000 with better benefits and
extended coverage.
The previous list is just a drop in the bucket of things that have been
accomplished this past year and if you are satisfied and would like to see fur-
ther achievements that lower taxes, maintain fiscal responsibility, and allow city
employees to contribute their knowledge and experience, then elect those two
candidates that will support the efforts of our mayor by Deing a team player
and one who will listen to the opinions, suggestions, and concerns of you, our
citizens.
As a footnote, I would like to add, the 408 Purposed Amendment does
NOT, I repeat, Does NOT change nor will it even allow a change in the future
to the Land Development Code or Comprehensive Plan as one person has
suggested.
Keep this thought in mind, the "view of the beach" belongs to ALL of the
citizens of Mexico Beach.

From the Principal of q j


Wewahitchka


High School

by Dr. Bill Truby


Last Friday night's victory
over Port St. Joe was something
special. The score was 42-7; the
first points we have allowed in
district play this season.
Therefore, WHS is the district
champion without peer or chal-
lengerl In the process of winning
last Friday we also regained the
Raffield-Whitfield Trophy that is
symbolic of the county champi-
onship. Way to go, Fighting
Gators! And now we are on our
way to play Freeport this Friday to
create some school history: the
first 10-0 season.
With all of this success comes
the post-season and home field
advantage, We are anticipating
hosting the first round of state
competition, the Regional Quarter
finals on Friday, November 9th.
Game time will be 7:30 CT, as
established by FHSAA.
Friday night was also Senior
Night. All seniors who participat-
ed in fall extra-curriculars-and
their parents-were recognized
before the football game. It is at
occasions like this that one real-
izes just how much of an impact
one class can have on our school
and community. All together 31
seniors were announced as par-
ticipants-nearly 2/3 of the gradu-
ating class!
The Lady Gator volleyball
team ended its season this past
week with a good showing in our
district tournament held at R.F.
Munroe. The girls won a first-
round match against Carrabelle
and narrowly lost to Apalachicola
in the semi-finals.. This is a
superb effort by a great group of
young ladies. With many under-
classmen on the roster, we are
anticipating some good teams
down the road.
The golf team played in, their
district this week at Quincy. The
caliber of play in our area is
superb, but our guys made some
progress for the future. Jonathan
Thomas shot an 84 and Beau
Ludlam shot an 89. With contri-
butions from Alex Chan and Trey
Murphy, the team finished far
above other local teams.
The WHS Drama Club will
present 'Man of the, House" on
November 3rd at 7:00 p.m. The
cost is $3 at the door. Gold Cards
are free. Come out and support
our students.


Report cards went home on
10/26. Please be on the lookout
for a newsletter with additional
information to parents as well as
the K-Mart information. And if
you find anything on the report
cards that require feedback from
the school, please do not hesitate
to contact us. Conferences are
normal events at this time of year.
The Middle School Task Force
will meet again on 11/5 at 6:30
p.m. at PSJMS.
This past week we had a
breakfast for our 9-12 students
who participated in fall extra-cur-
riculars. Our guest speaker was
Mr. Gary Speights who used to
teach and coach here at Wewa
and is now the Assistant Principal
at Vernon. He emphasized the
value of hard work and education.
This fit right in since our empha-
sis all year long in this regard has
been scholarship, character, and
goals.
Our award-winning band
competed at the Florida Band
Master's Competition in Panama
City this past Saturday. This
quality group of youngsters
proved that they do not have to
take a back seat to anyone as they
earned very high marks once
again. We thank Mr. Stryker and
Mrs. Dodson and our senior lead-
ers for their great efforts and
examples.
There is a Spirit Bus ready to
roll for the Freeport football game
on November 2nd. The cost is
$15.00. There is a sign-up in the
WHS office. Call Mrs. Carolyn
Husband at 639-2222 if you have
questions or need more details.
Only pre-paid reservations will be
taken.
The week of November 11-17
is Take Our Parents to School

Week. If you were interested in
coming to school to visit, that time
frame would be a great one. Being
in the classroom or spending time
at lunch can be a valuable experi-
ence for all concerned.
Did you know that Wal-Mart
employees could volunteer their
.time at work and have a check, for
:this time sent to WHS? We found
that out this. week as we received
a sizeable donation thf6uglp he
generosity of Gwen Cain. Thanks

News Column
U Qi Faith Christian School


This week we have been meet-
ing with some of our parents to
discuss our plan to help their chil-
dren improve some of the funda-
mental skills. We will be imple-
menting a new reading program.
REWARDS (reading excellence:
work attack and rate development
strategies), to help some of our
students who still struggle with
reading multi-syllable words. This,
program is intended to build read-
ing fluency and in turn improve
comprehension.
We are so proud of how much
our students are reading.
The middle school students
are looking forward to a
Halloween Dance during the
school day on Halloween day. The
Sr. High National Honor Society is
hosting the event for us, and we
are grateful for their willingness
to provide our kids with such a
great opportunity to celebrate. It
is also our hope that the older
students will serve as positive role
models for our ypung people to
pattern themselves after.
Trey Goodwin was our,
"Respect" winner Oct. 15-19. Trey
is an enthusiastic student who
always has a si-le on his face. He
has taken many opportunities to
be helpful to both teachers and
students. Trey, like so many of
our students, truly makes us
proud Trey was treated to a pizza
of his choice for lunch Friday,
October 19th.
We would like to extend our
thanks to, Coach Wayne Flowers,
Coach Heather Fields, Coach
April Andrews, Mr. Terry Stryker,
and all those who assisted them
with football, volleyball, cheer-
leading, and band for our middle
school students. They have had
great seasons, and our students
have benefited on so many differ-
ent'levels. These people help
make the school experience for
our students much richer, and
what they teach could never
merely be measured in touch-
downs, points scored, or trophies
won. Thank you for your dedica-
tiont
Every week brings exciting
opportunities for new growth in
our middle school. What a privilege
to work with such a dedicated
group of teachers and enthusias-
tic group of kids! Parents, we
solicit your continued involve-
ment in your chld's education. It
takes cooperation of school,
home, and community to ensure
the success of each child!


Reading is a computer adaptive,
norm-referenced reading test and
database. With the STAR Reading
software, the reading levels of stu-
dents in grades 1-12 can be
assessed in about ten minutes.
The STAR Reading. Adaptive
Branching technology accurately
assesses reading levels. Students
work through a short, assisted-
response, multiple-choice test. If
a student misses-a. question, the
difficulty level is reduced. If a stu-
dent's response is correct, the dif-
ficulty is increased. The system
minimizes frustration and pro-
vides more accurate scores for
both high-performing and low-
performing students.
Testing has begun for all stu-
dents that have computer lab
classes. Test, results are being
.sent home so that parents may
have a better understanding of
each child's status as a reader.
Technology has greatly
changed the face of education and
. WES has been receptive to the
positive attributes it offers. Many
students at WES take part in the
Compass Learning Computer Lab
overseen by Ms. Baxley. Compass
Learning was formerly called
Tomorrow's Promise. Compass
Learning Reading employs the
balanced language approach to
reading coordinated with skill
instruction -in phonics, vocabu-
lary, ,and comprehension.
Students are exposed to.a. variety
of literary geire., and are encour-
aged to respond critically to what
they read. Themes are incorporat-
ed from such areas as science,
history, mythology, poetry, biog-
raphy, fantasy, and adventure.
Compass Learning Mathe-
matics follows current NCTM
standards with basic concepts,
computation skills and real-life
applications interwoven through-
out. Themes from other disci-
plines add interest and provide
context for problems and exam-
ples.. ,
