While it might not seem like a
significant factor in the scheme of
things, 8286,174.72 in total per-
mit revenues (up nearly $50,000
from 1999-2000 fiscal year)
reflect another leap in growth for
Gulf County.
Permit revenues can be con-
sidered as a barometer of sorts for
what's happening in Gulf County.
Data surrounding these fees can
tell us what type'homes are being
built, where growth areas are,
arid reflect new trends that might
be surfacing.
:! In 1990, a grand total of
$24,308 worth of permits were
sold in Gulf County. Compared to
the new 2001 figure of
k286.174.72. permit revenues
have grown nearly 12 fold over
this 11 year period. What is even
more remarkable is that the most
significant portion of that growth
has occurred over the past five
years.
Permit Revenues
:1990 ........ =$24,308
1991 ........ =$37.000
1992......... =859,000
1995 ....... =8103,000

1998 ....... =$157.000
2000 ....... =$237,000
2001 ....... =8286,175
Note that since 1998 (three
years) permit fees revenues have
nearly doubled-growing nearly
8137.000. Back up to a few more
years (1995) and the growth
begins to really look astonishing.
Gulf County Building Official
Michael Hammond reported these
figuress during the Gulf County
Commission's last meeting.
Hammond pointed out, during an
interview, some of the more inter-
esting facts and trends which are
revealed when comparing statisti-
cal numbers over the past 10
years.
The Values of Permitted
Homes Is Way Up
When a person buys a permit
for new construction, the cost of
those building permits is based
on the estimated value of the


home being built. In 2000-2001, a
total of 172 new construction per-
mits were purchased.
In 1991, the average value 'of
a new home being permitted was
$60,376.

ILLE A EEN EITO The Richet G. y- -I- T o



f \ E WRITTEN BY
WILLIE RAMSEY, EDITOR The Richest Guy In Town


A Tradition 1"

Miss Belle made us stand up
Ton the Wednesday before
S3 8 0 Y es Thanksgiving and "state one thing
that we were especially thankful
for."


"I like spring, but it is too young. I like summer, but it is
too proud. So I like best of all autumn, because its leaves are
a little yellow, its tone mellower, its colors richer, and it is
tinged a little with sorrow ... Its golden richness speaks the
power of summer, but of the mellowness and kindly wisdom
of approaching age. It knows the limitations of life and is con-
tent."
As we celebrate Thanksgiving this year, perhaps this
reflective thought by Oriental philosopher Lin Yutang may
help us appreciate our blessings-our country from which
many of them flow. For America,. like autumn, is no longer
either too young or too proud. Rather, we have come to know
better, if not accept, our limitations as a nation. And, after
225 years, we continue to enjoy some of the innocence of
spring, the power of summer, and perhaps even a growing
degree of autumnal wisdom.
The,first Thanksgiving day, of course, predates the birth
of our country. Following a winter of tremendous hardship,
Pilgrim Gov. William Bradford in the autumn of 1621 ordered
a three-day festival to celebrate a life-sustaining harvest.
"Our harvest being gotten in," wrote Edward Winslow in a let-
ter of December 11, 1621, "our Governor sent four men on
fowling, that so we might after a more special manner rejoice
together, after we had gathered the fi-uit of our labours."
Despite this early beginning, shared with some 90 neigh-
boring Indians. Thanksgiving Day was not celebrated
throughout the United States as a regular national holiday
until it was so proclaimed by President Lincoln on Nov. 26,
1863. Since that time, it has been celebrated annually and
has become a cherished American tradition. We are ever
thankful for the freedoms which we enjoy as a-nation, and the
right to workshop as we please. For these blessings we are
eternally grateful.
ur 1ope this year is that you \\ill join with
u usn thhanking a generous and merciful Creator ,
for the blessings of liberty and abundance in '
which we continue to share. And
may you have a Happy -, ..,
Thanksgiving!


I had to think hard! And Iwas
glad to be seated way back toward
the back on the third row. I start-
ed counting the students between
Anne Alexander, who was up there
in the front seat, and me. There
were fifteen people. If they were all
as long winded as Anne and
Larenda Bradfield .. surely," I
had time to come up with some-
thing! .
Anne was going on and on
about her mother and father and
grandmother and sister and the


big, nice. house. :. Miss Belle
interrupted her twice to rermnd
her that the.assignment was for
"one blessing,only."
I neverthought of a sibling as
something to be thankful for! Leon
spent his leisure hours boxing on
my ears. He'.d tie a rope, around my
neck, attach it to the front bar of
the reel mower, and yell "mush" as
we cut the grass. He loved to give
me a little tap upside the head and
when I reached up to rub the pain,
he'd grab what w\,as left of my
pimento-cheese sandwich.
I didn't dwell on. Leon very
long. Graylene Lemonds was up
and thankful for the nice weather
we'd been enjoying lately.
My eyes near 'bout rolled out
of my head! It was hot as all blue
blazes plum down through August,
it rained most of September and it
was turning colder every day now.
The weather ain't no blessing! It
rains when I want to go outside ..
. the sui shines when we're stuck


in this old classroom ... .. hy. I'd
faint if the weather man ever hit
me nght just one-
"Well. Miss Belle." James
Hastings had lumbered to his feet.
This ought to be good! We'd been
in school for two hole years
now and a portion of another and
I'd never heard James' say more
. than four or five words. "I'm shore
glad that ole mule 'stopped before
he ran me offen the Steadman
Pike. If he'd a' taken one more
step, we'd a' been buzzard picking
at the bottom of the ravine down
behind the Shiloh church for
shore."
There was a pause as James
sat down. I didn't know if Miss
Belle was. thinking on what the
results would have looked like if
one more step had been taken, or
if she was figunng on whether or
not hurling off a 50 foot cliff con-
stituted a Thanksgiving blessing,
or perhaps she w'as studying on
recommending James for a Rhodes
Scholarship in English.


I took the extra seconds to try
to come up with a blessing of my
own. It surely wouldn't be about
any farm animals! Let me tell you,
I was around those things ail day
long. The cows mooed and milled
from morning till night. The chick-
ens would attack when you
reached under 'em to pick up.an
egg. The hogs wallard and ate.
then ate and wallard. Our mule
was more hard headed and can-
tankerous than James'.
Suzie Cozart bubbled ,up. I
never saw her when' she wasn't
bubbling! "Oh, I'm so thankful to
be in this class room. (My eyes
weren't the only ones rolling now.)
We are learning so much. And hav-
ing so much fun! (I thought I heard
Bobby Brewer throwing up behind
me.) We should all be thankful for
such a wonderful education."

Retirement Brings More Knowledge As My Reading Time Increases


ANDY ROONEY, CBS' 60 Min-
utes commentator, is one of my
favorites on the "boob tube".
His dry wit and variety of sub-
jects attracts my undivided atten-
tion every Sunday evening at
about 7:55.
The other day, I had run out of
something to read, so imagine my
elation, when, while rummaging'
through our bedside chest, I found
a copy of a paperback book enti-
tled, A Few Minutes With Andy
Rooney, which had been' there for
several years.
I know it had been there sev-
eral years, because it was :in the
bottom drawer, under some shoe
shining paraphernalia. Too, it was
written sometime in the mid-80s
and had several short stories
about events that happened in the
,'70s and '80s.
In the credits, printed on the
front fly sheet of the book, there
were comments by various writers.
The best tribute to Andy Rooney,

for 317 pages, telling his views
about such subjects as: Chairs,
Who Owns What in America, Soap,

shows."
Rooney's reason for watching
football is that, "It gets a lot of hate
out of your system." His reasoning
for this, is that you will naturally,
pull for one team and dislike the
other.

I RECOMMEND Andy's book
for your leisure reading. It's entire-
ly entertaining.
I couldn't:tell you where to get
a copy; I suppose you might luck
up on a copy at any good book
store. Maybe they have a copy at
the Gulf County Library. It's worth
making a little effort and expend-
ing a little energy to find a copy.
Andy is his own worst critic.
For instance, a paragraph written
by him, on the back cover of the
book, sayrs: "A book by anyone on
a popular television broadcast will
probably sell whether it's any good
or not and that makes me ner-
vous."
Cf course, the book is good.

The spoken.word is given scant attention; the printed
word is thoughtfully weighed. The spoken word barely
asserts; the printed word thoroughly convinces. The
spoken word is lost; the printed word remains.


I recommend it!
Even though it is written by a,
personality who appears on a pop-
ular television show.

IN THE MEANTIME, I'm on
the search for another good book
to read, interspersed with the
newspaper, Newsweek and Nation-
al Geographic. Of course, Readers'
Digest is usually fitted in there
every month, also.
This month, I was reading. an
article in National Geographic
about Russia which caused an
upset in my natural acceptance of
things.
I always assumed Russia had
more population than the U.S.
The nation is the largest in the
world, so it should have the largest
population; sort of on the order of
China.
Not sol !
According to National Geo-
graphic, Russia has only 120 mil-
lion people as citizens-half the


population of the U.S.. !
That information was a shbck
to me. I don't know about youj but
I just naturally thought it a a
larger nation' than that. Of co rse,
so much of it is in the .frozen
north, that its uninhabitable.

I ENJOY READING NRtt nal
Geographic magazine every mqnth.
It has some unusual information
in it. And the pictures are suprb!
If you get the idea, from this
column, that all I do is read, well,
you are pretty nearly correct!
One of the, most enjoyable
ways I spend my retirement ; by
reading just about anything
and everything. I've learned more
about everything than I ever
learned during my days of activity.
So my advice to you, is, before
you retire, subscribe to a few good
magazines and collect some good
books. You'll need them and njoy
them!

Motel St. Joe Is Ready for


Facelift--"Old Florida" Theme


Back in June, it was
announced that David and Trish
Warriner had purchased the St.
Joe Motel building with intentions
to restore the historic structure.
"We're in the process of
putting together a team to work
toward restoring the building
back to some of its prior glory
'years," said David Warriner, at
that time.
Well, the team's together, the
plan's in place, and work is begin-
ning to get underway. That's basi-
cally what Warriner told folks
gathered at the Gulf County
SChamber of Commerce "After
Hours" last Thursday evening.
Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director Sandra Chafin
thanked the Warriners for their
efforts and expressed her excite-
ment as she anticipates and looks
forward to the day the work will
be completed.
Warriner introduced his
Steam" which includes architect
Larry R. Burke, motel consultant


Edward Xanders, and contractor
Bob Windolf.
New Plans To Blend
With The Past
Several architectural rendi-
tions of what the facelift will look
like when completed were on dis-
play throughout the foyer/
entrance of the motel-located at
the intersection of Highway 98
and Cecil G. Costin, Sr.
Boulevard.
A motel has' been situated at
the current St. Joe Motel location
since 1909 when what was then
the original Port Inn was built. It
was destroyed by_ fire, which
started in the main fireplace of
the structure, on October 17,
1944. In 1948, Red Gunn recon-
structed the building as St. Joe
Motel.
Warriner has been studying
the history on both motels since
his purchase of the property from
Bill Koran and Janna Bush in
June. His focus has been to use
that history to blend the best of


the old with the conveniences of
the new, and reclaim the old Port
Inn atmosphere and appearance.
Some of the changes that will
be made include:
*a covered porch/walkway
extending across the entire front
of the building similar to the orig-
inal Port Inn front;
*expand the occupancy from
16 rooms (currently) to 20 rooms;
*totally remodel the rooms
and interior/exterior of the build-
ing; and
*add a pool and improve
parking area in the rear of the
building. (Parking area will
include arrangements for boaters
with trailers).
Lodging Is A Priority
Locating and establishing
quality lodging for this area has
been a need that the Gulf County
tourist and economic develop-
ment planners have been stress-
ing. Warriner said their plans for
the motel would provide quality
lodging.
The restaurant will also con-
tinue in operation and improve-
ments will be made One of those
improvements will be the reopen-
ing of the upstairs dining/meet-
ing room. In years past, several of
the area's civic organizations met
in the motel's upper room. This
area will once again be available
for private parties, meetings,


Edward Xanders, Bob
Windolf, and Larry R. Burke join
David and Trish Warriner to
look over plans.

reunions or similar gatherings.
Complete By September 2002
Warriner put contractor Bob
Windolf on the spot when he stat-
ed, "We'll be through with the ren-
ovation by the end of September
of next year."
Trish and David are looking
forward to hosting the Annual
Gulf County Tapper Invitational
Golf Tournameft activities at the
S"new" motel in October next year.

me: which was further east,
Chicago or New Orleans-I'd never
even been as far as Jackson! We'd
been cutting out turkey and Indian
heads for a full week. Please
explain how that was going to help.
later in life
Jane '"rugboat" Hill was next.
"I'm thankful for that extra plump,
juicy turkey, dressing and all the
trimmings that we're going to have
next Thursday."
I wondered what the rest of
her family would be eating! I
learned the second day back in the
first grade not to sit too close to
Jane at lunch. She kinda spread.
out at feeding time . if you
know what I mean .... Gosh; we'd,
have so many aunts and'uncles
and cousins and in-laws for
Thanksgiving that I couldn't keep
track of 'em all! They'd tousle my
hair, declare, "My, how you have
grown," and eat most of the food
before the children were allowed
into the dining room If there was
one chicken leg left, Leon would
get it ....
Hollis Nlayo eased out of his
seat. squinched his face all up like
he couldn't think of nothing, and
then blurted, "I'm thankful to get
two days out of school."
Finally! A true blessing! Hollis
was saying what I was-Wait a
rmnute. he stole my "thankful for"!
Thqt's what I was going to say!
Nothing's worse than going down
the row and the guy two seats in
front of you uses your line!

Leroy Cunningham's neck was
turning crimson even before Miss
Belle looked at him. He rose halt-
ingly. And didn't meet her gaze,
preferring instead to study on the
toes of his worn out hand-me-
down shoes. Leroy had more
brothers and sisters than Carter
had little liver pills. Listen, we did-
n't have much. The Cunningham's
had less. Much lesslThey had no
car, no barn, the worst clothes.
There were some who looked down
on them. Mother had made it clear
I was to be friendly .... and under
no circumstances was I to com-
ment or make fun at their expense.
"I, ah, I," Leroy's mouth was
trying to move but there wasn't
anything coming out. He took a
deep breath. "I am thankful for
every meal. For every act of kind-
ness. For all my farmly who so
carefully watch after me. For the
blessing mother says that I am to
her. For the work when daddy can
Find it. For the people at the
church who share so much with
us. I reckon I'm about the luckiest
guy in the whole world."
I stood up, quietly said,
"Amen." . and sat. back down
with a whole new perspective on
life.
You Count Your Blessings,

Doyles Celebrate

55 Years Together


Charles E. (Ed) Doyle and his
wife, Edith Cornelia (Nelia) Barker
Doyle, will celebrate their fifty-
fifth wedding anniversary on
Thanksgiving Day, November 22.
Before World War II, they lived
on farms, across the country dirt
road from each other, about five
miles east of Ochlocknee, Georgia,
and about 45 miles above
Tallahassee. Ed and his family
farmed the land where Edith and
her family lived. It was there that
Nelia, at age thirteen decided to
marry Ed, but only her mother
knew about this.
Ed served for a time in the
U.S. Marines before the war, and
had gotten out of the service.
However, when Pearl Harbor was
bombed, Ed was one of the first to
join the U.S. Navy the next mon-
ring, on December 8, 1941.
First serving on mine sweep-
ers, then on an escort and patrol
craft in which they escorted the
troop ships overseas for the inva-
sion of Africa where behind-the-
lines hits were made across
Morocco, Algeria, Lybia and
Tunisia.
This was followed by the inva-
sion of Sicily, and then Italy, with
many behind-the-lines minor
invasions, plus the big ones at


Anzio, and Salerno, Italy.
After the invasion of France,
Ed was transferred back to the
good ole USA, only to be assigned
to an amphibious landing ship,
built in Texas, that they took on
down through the Panama Canal
and into the Pacific War Zone.
After going to Pearl Harbor in
Hawaii, then to Guam, they joined
up with their battle group for
Okinawa, and then other minor
island cleanup operations. Ed's
ship was in the great armada of
ships heading for Japan for the
big invasion when the two atomic
bombs were dropped on Nagasaki
and Hiroshima, resulting, in the
Japanese surrender. Ed was then
part of the occupational forces on
Saipan, Tinian and Rota, until
finally returning to the United
States after World War II ended.
In the meantime, Nelia and
her mother, Gussie Kate Brown
Barer, had moved to Columbus,
Georgia, where her father, James
E. Barker, was working as a
machinist during the great war
effort.
Finally Ed returned to the
states and Columbus, where on
November 22, 1946 he and Nelia
were joined in holy matrimony. It
wasn't until twenty years later,

Mr. and Mrs. Ed Doyle


and many moves and actions all
over the world that Ed finally
retired from the US Navy. Nelia
and Ed finally .settled in the
Wewahitchka area in 1966, close
to Nelia's sister, Marie Barker
Poole, on the acreage that they
had purchased on the Dead Lakes
two years earlier. Ed then worked
almost twenty years at the
Blountstown Post Office as a
walking mail carrier. They still
have their little farm on the Dead
Lakes along Doyle Road, but they
bought their small acreage in
Wewa between W. River Road and
Pineview Drive in 1988 and have
lived ever since at 153 Pineview
Drive.


You can usually see them in
their garden along West River
Road, or working in their shrub-
bery and flowers, or their rock
gardens, as they are avid rock and
mineral collectors.
They have one son, four
grandchildren, and four great-
grandchildren. They vill be home
for this Thanksgiving and the
55th wedding anniversary on
November 22.
Stop by and visit, look at their
rock and mineral collections, and
walk among their shrubbery and
fruit trees, and ,be, sure not to
miss their quarter acre garden of
all types of vegetables.

Managing


Windfalls


Wisely

'The odds of winning the lot-
tery may be stacked against you,
however, there's a good chance
you may be the recipient of a
large, perhaps unexpected, finan-'
cial windfall at some point during
your life. Regardless of how this
windfall arrives inheritance,
insurance payout, divorce settle-
ment, retirement plan distribu-
tion, sale of business, or via
company stock options careful
money management will be criti-
cal to enjoying the money for
years to come.
Unfortunately, many recipi-
ents of windfalls fail to use them
wisely and are left with little or no
savings and lots of regret. To
avoid joining their ranks, there
are a number of important consid-
erations to keep in mind when
coming into large cash payouts:
Avoid Sudden Impulses
Most windfalls are squan-
dered \during the first days,
weeks, and months as recipients
often make impulsive decisions to
quit their jobs, take exotic vaca-
tions, or buy a new house or car
with their newfound wealth. For
this reason,. the best course of
action is often to leave the entire
sum in a money market account
for the first six months. This
requires a great deal of discipline,
however, in not spending a dime
during the first six months you'll
avoid making irrational 'decisions
and will have given yourself suffi-
cient time to evaluate your
options and develop a solid long-
term financial plan.


t Many people mistakenly
believe a large sum of money is
the answer to all of their prob-
lems, when in fact, it's likely going
create new anxiety and stress. By
explaining your options and creat-
ing a plan, a qualified Financial
Advisor. can help to make manag-
Sing a'windfall easier.
invest For Long-Term Gains
While using a portion of the
windfall to reduce debt and pay
bills is often a good idea, investing
a significant sum for your future
is also recommended. With long-
ro term investing in both stocks and
bonds, the windfall's potential for
596 appreciation can be significantly
increased. In many cases, invest-
.. ing a windfall can be a difficult
,decision, but it's important, to
S remember that with inflation,
.n cash that is not invested is actu-
ally losing its purchasing power.
Upon hearing about your
windfall, friends and relatives may
come forward offering financial
advice. While well meaning, this
advice might not help you achieve
your financial goals. As always,
before any investment decisions
t are made it's important to care-
fully review your existing hold-

employment security, risk toler-
ance, taxes, and time horizon
ion before retirement. A professional
financial advisor can help you
( evaluate these variables and craft
'(PSJ) a long-term plan that will help
(PSJ) you achieve your goals.
upply One strategy a financial advi-
sor might recommend to avoid
investing the entire sum during
unfavorable market conditions is
SJ) "dollar-cost averaging." or
(PSJ) investing a predetermined sum of
(S) money on a regular basis. Not
SJ) only can this strategy help even
PSJ) out, the market's peaks' and
troughs; it can also help you
resist the urge to time the market,

which regardless of how much
investing experience you may
have, is impossible.
Manage Taxes
Anyone who has received a
large financial windfall quickly
becomes aware of the tax strings
attached. To determine how much
to set aside for taxes, check with a
tax advisor or accountant. The
sooner you can calculate tax
implications, the easier it will be
to plan for the future. And
because the windfall is likely tb
mean entering a higher tax
bracket, it's also a good idea to
discuss what steps can' be taken
to manage taxes in the upcoming
years.
How you spend, save, and
invest your financial windfall will
determine whether it helps, you
achieve your financial goals or
leaves you with regret. To learn
more about effectively managing
an inheritance, insurance payout,
divorce settlement, retirement
plan. distribution, sale of busi-
ness, or company stock options,
contact your financial advisor.

PAGE 10A THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2001


Boom--

growth has taken place over the
last five years. That's over 135%
growth and nearly all of it coming
since 1995-six years.
Homes are bigger, more
expensive, and the most recent
trends place the new homes'
demographics heavily along the
coast. That includes the whole
coastal area-Indian Pass, Cape,
along St. Joseph Bay, St. Joe
Beach, Beacon Hill, and Port St.
Joe.
Two years ago, this was not a
county-wide trend as significant
growth in newly permitted homes








The

was also taking place in the
northern end of Gulf County.
Hammond said the focus is now
mostly along these coastal areas.
Mobile Homes Are Down
Permits to place mobile
homes have taken a dramatic
downturn from a high in 1997 to
92 permits for 2001. This is a
continuation of a trend that
reflects fewer and fewer mobile
homes being permitted for Gulf
County.
Total permits sold in 2001
was 1,974; this number is up 282
over 2000 figures of 1,692. New
construction permits have added
$25 million in taxable values and
other type permits grossed $3.5
million, translating to over $28
million in taxable value added to
the Gulf County property tax rolls
for the 2001 fiscal year.
What Does the Future Hold?
Hammond believes there is
much growth to come as the St.
Joe Company and others can con-
tinue to develop areas of Gulf
County. He expects much of that
focus to continue to center
around the coastal areas, of the
county where the trend of higher
property, values will probably
escalate also.

Everyone agrees that dental
X-rays are useful, but how much is
too much? The Department of
Health and Human Services has
recommended that a medical his-
tory and dental examination be
done before any X-rays are taken.
Only then can the dentist decide
what, if any, X-rays are needed.
They also recommended that
the X-rays be individualized. The
panel felt that kids growing up
without evidence of cavities in flu-


Ray Time Frame



oridated communities need check-
up X-rays about every one to two
years. For adults who aren't get-
ting cavities, the interval can be
extended to 18 months to two
years. On the other hand if kids
are getting cavities, X-rays should
be taken every six to twelve
months until no new cavities are
consistently found.
Some X-ray advice: When
changing dentists, make every
effort to obtain previous X-rays
before taking new ones. Even if
new ones are needed, the old
ones can serve as a comparison.
Finally, always be sure you are
covered with a lead apron before
an X-ray is taken.

Local Student Rachel Thayer's Letter Touches President Bush


Rachel Rose Thayer has a
faith in God and country far
deeper than you might expect
from a 10-year-old. At least the
leader of the free world thinks so.
Here's an excerpt from President
George W. Bush's nationally tele-
vised address from the White
House Oct. 7: "We ask a lot of
those who wear our uniform. We
ask. them to leave their loved
ones, to travel great distances, to
risk injury, even to be prepared to
make the ultimate sacrifice of
their lives. They are dedicated,
they are honorable; they repre-
sent the best of our country. And
we are grateful. To all the men
and women in our military --
every sailor, every soldier, every
airman, every coastguardsman,
every Marine I say this: your
mission is defined; your objectives
are clear; your goal is just. You
have my full confidence, and you


will have every tool you need to
carry out your duty.
I recently received a touching
letter that says a lot about the
state of America in these difficult
times -a letter from a 4th-grade
girl, with a father in the military:
"As much as I don't want my Dad
to fight," she wrote, "I'm willing to
give him to you."
This is a precious gift, the
greatest she could give. This
young girl knows what America is
all about.; Since September 11, an
entire generation of young
Americans has gained new under-
standing of the value of freedom,
and its.cost in duty and in sacri-
fice."
That "4th-grade girl" is
Rachel. She's the daughter of Maj.
John Thayer, 325th Operations
Support Squadron chief of train-
ing development, and Connie

Thayer, an avid marathon runner
and long-time operator of a USA
swimming club.
Rachel penned the letter dur-
ing what must have been a fright-
ening time for her. She did it while
her parents were out of town, and
just days after she watched the
World Trade Center and Pentagon
terrorist attacks unfold on live
television.
"Through what's been going
on I just wanted to give my dad up
to the president, because I know
that someday he'll have to fight or
something like that," Rachel
explained. "I knew that God would
protect my dad, so that's how I got
my ideas -just by writng and
thinking about what I was going
to say."
On the first day that classes
resumed at Port St. Joe's Faith
Christian School after the attacks,
Rachel's English teacher asked,
her students to write a letter to
the president. The teacher's pur-
pose was twofold: show support
for the president and the nation,
and give the children an outlet to
express their feelings about the'
tragedies.
Just before the attacks,
Thayer, a Tyndall F-15 pilot, was
tasked for a temporary duty
assignment in the Cleveland area.
But' since it was a stateside tem-
porary duty assignment, Connie
used the opportunity to accom-
pany her husband.
The day Rachel completed her-
letter, she read it to her parents
over the phone.
Little did they know how far
their daughter's words would
travel.
"It brought tears to my eyes to
listen to her say that she was will-
ing to give up her dad to fight for
the safety of this country and to
give the president permission to
do that," said Mrs. Thayer. "She.
was just so excited, and it was so
neat to hear it and to read it,
because we're very proud of John
in his flying...."
Being away at such an impor,
tant time for Rachel wasn't easy
for her parents.
"It was very difficult for us on
(September) the 11 t to be away
from the family when this hap-
pened, and sort of unable to get
back," Mrs. Thayer said. 'She
wrote this letter in the midst of all
Lhidt. ft was a good feeling tLo
know that she knew everything
was going to be OK and that the
right people would be in charge."
By the time her parents had


returned, Rachel's heartfelt words
had quietly cleared the wickets all
the way to the president's speech-
writers.
On Oct. 7, Rachel came home
from school, beaming with pride
as she immediately broke the
good news to her parents. They
Were still unpacking boxes from a
recent move into their new home.
"I was very excited," Rachel
said. "My teacher was watching
the news, and when she saw the
president's speech, she heard him


quote the sentence out of my let-
ter, and that's how I found out,
because we were moving when he
was speaking about it."
Thayer was understandably
thrilled with his daughter's news.
"It was neat to hear her say.
what she said, because it was
completely unsolicited and not
directed by the teacher," he said.
"At that point we went digging on
the Internet and found a video .
copy of it and a transcript that we
downloaded, so we could watch


the whole thing. And sure enough,
when he got to that part of the
speech it was really neat to hear
him say exactly what Rachel had
read to me on the phone."
When asked if she's eager to
write to the president again,
Rachel responded, 'Yes, mostly
about spiritual things, and to tell
him I've beeh praying for. him.
-stuff like that.
When the war is over, I'd put
that I'm glad that he's safe and I'm
glad that he's our president."

Dealing With a Child's Grief


dead person.
*Repeated statements of
wanting to join the dead person.
*Withdrawal from friends.


*Sharp drop in school perfor-
mance or refusal to attend school.
These warning signs indicate
that professional help may be


needed. A child and adolescent
psychiatrist can help the child
accept the death and assist the
parents in helping the child


through the mourning process.
WES has been shaken to our
foundation by the tragic passing

(See Grief on Page 3B)


SWhen a loved one dies, chil-
dren react differently from adults.
Preschool children usually see
death as temporary and
reversible, a belief reinforced by
cartoon characters who "die" and
"come to life" again. Children
between five and nine begin to
think more like adults about
death, yet they still believe it will
never happen to them or anyone
they know.
Parents should be aware of
normal childhood responses to a
death, as well as signs when a
child is having difficulty coping
with grief. According to child and
adolescent psychiatrists, it is nor-
mal during the weeks following
the death for some children to feel
immediate grief or persist in the
belief that the person is still alive.
However, long-term denial of the
death or avoidance of grief can be
emotionally unhealthy and can
later lead to more severe prob-
lems.
A child who is frightened
about attending a funeral should
not be forced to go; however, hon-
oring or remembering the person
in spme way, such as lighting a
candle, saying a prayer, making a
scrapbook, reviewing photo-
graphs, or telling a story may be
helpful.
Once children accept the
death, they are likely to display
their feelings of sadness on and
off over a long period of time, and
often at unexpected moments.
Parents should spend as much
time as possible with the child,
making it clear that the child has
permission to show his or her


feelings openly or freely.
If the person who has died
was essential to the stability of
the child's world, anger is a nat-
ural reaction. The anger may be
revealed in boisterous play, night-
mares, irritability, or a variety of
other behaviors. Often the child
will show anger towards family
members.
Children who are having seri-
ous problems with grief an'd loss
may show one or more of these
signs:
*An extended period of
depression in which the child
loses interest in daily activities
and events.
*Inability to sleep, loss of
appetite, prolonged fear of being'
alone.
*Acting much younger for an
extended period.
*Excessively imitating the

PUBLIC HEARING

US 98 (STATE ROAD 30) REALIGNMENT
SECTION NO. 51010, GULF COUNTY, FLORIDA
All interested persons are invited to attend.

Arvida, a St. Joe Company (SJC), will conduct a Public Hearing on proposed
improvements to US 98 in Gulf County, Florida.


This Hearing will be conducted to afford interested persons the opportunity to
express their views concerning the location: conceptual design; and social, eco-
nomic, and environmental effects of the proposed improvements. Proposed
improvements involve the realigning of approximately 3.65 miles of US 98,
beginning just north of Butler Bay Boulevard, and terminating just south of
Pine Street. The project will reign the above-mentioned section of US 98 fur-
ther inland from its existing location.

Any potential encroachment on wetlands and flobdplains resulting from this
project has been identified and has been given special consideration under
Executive Orders 11990 and 11998. Access management standards, devel-
oped by FDOT under Section 335.18, Florida 'Statutes, to protect public safety,
provide mobility, and preserve the functional integrity of the road, will be
addressed. These standards affect driveway access and median openings at
crossroads affected by the proposed improvements.

Copies of the draft State Environmental Impact Report and draft Preliminary
Engineering Report that document the findings of the Project Development and
Environment study will be available for public review at the Gulf County Public
Library, 110 Library Drive, Port St. Joe, FL 32456.

This Hearing will be held in accordance with Titles VI and VIII of the Civil
Rights Act. The agenda for the Hearing, given below, includes an open house
for the public to review the hearing documents, a presentation by Arvida/SJC
on the project and its associated impacts, and a period for public testimony.
Before and after the Hearing, Arvida/ SJC representatives will be available to
answer questions.

and/or exhibits may also be submitted as part of the Hearing if received with-
in ten (10) calendar days after the date of the Hearing.
