SCompany officials: totally
agree the view is special and they.
seek to develop in such a manner
as to maintain and preserve the
'cenic view along the beachfront
and use. that view to bring value
to inland property. In order to do
that and tie the inland properties
to the beachfront, the roadway
would have to be moved.
They perceive this as a posi-

New Building Code Ordinance Will


Alter New Construction Requirements


Commission Tackles Personnel
Policy and Safety Program
Gulf County will likely be
under the rules of a new Building
Code Ordinance to begin the year
2002.
Building Department Official
Michael Hammond presented the
board of commissioners with a
proposed -ordinance during its
regular meeting Tuesday evening
and was granted permission to
proceed, with advertising the
changes.
Hammond explained that sev-
eral changes have been made in
the new Florida Building" Code
that will go into effect January 1,
2002 which the county needs to
update in its building code ordi-
Snance.


140 MPH Wind Zone
The biggest change in the new
code will be a new. wind zone
requirement of 140 miles per hour
throughout the county.
In the past, the wind zone
requirement was 110 miles per
hour. The new levels raise that
mark to 140 miles per hour, but
the new regulation deals with
three second gusts at 140 miles
per hour, rather than sustained
winds as was required in the old
regulations. This still equates to
an increase in structure strength,
but not as great as it would be if
the new wording required sus-
tained winds.
The new rules will also
require all property owners within
one mile of the coast to have high
impact glass or shutters as part of
new construction plans.


Only Active Building Permits
Are Grandfathered
Hammond also pointed out
that only active building permits
(as of December 31, 2001) will be
grandfathered into the new year.
.Inactive building permits (defined
as those which have not required
inspection within six months) will
not carry forward into the new
year.
Any outstanding inactive per-
mit holders who have not
addressed the status of their per-
mit prior to the January 1, 2002
date will be.required to adhere to
the new building code require-
ments.
Under the new ordinance all
new construction plans in Gulf
County will have to be sealed by

WHAT EVER HAPPENED to
the paper boys? You know, those
miniature businessmen who :got
out on their bicycles after school
to bring you the daily newspaper
and circulated the city again on
Saturday, collecting.
I saw a television commercial
the other day which reminded me
of my paper-delivering days and
how I used the proceeds to pur-
chase me a "Victory" bike from
B.W. Eells' Firestone store.
They were expensive, 'too. I
think I paid $28.00 for that bike,
and I rode it for six or seven years.
Those were inr the days before
I was married. Then I married and
moved off to the Macon, Georgia
area where I stayed for six years.
When I came back, I oiled up the
old bike and rode it again for a
while, to and from workI
Almost anyone who. has
known me for any length of time,
remembers me courting Frenchie
by taking her to the picture show
-on the handlebars of that bike.

Moving the Road Is the


Best Thing for Our County

Sometimes this job gets pretty doggone hard-especially when there's
controversy involved.
More than once I've shared that when I write on controversial issues
half of the people love my opinion and the other half hate it. Two weeks
later I write on something else 'controversial, and once again half of the
people love it and the'other half hate it-only problem is, the halves have
usually changed sides, so now everybody's mad at mell
Whether or riot to move a 3.74 mile section of Highway 98 between
Dixie Belle Curve and St. Joe Beach is one of those kinds of issues. It's an
issue that I might would rather stand on the sidelines, let the chips.fall,
then join in union with the "vitors"--like I was with 'em all along.
This is far too important an issue to be treated with such complai-
cency, so here's my neck, scratch it or cut it off.
Move the road!ll!
It's in the best interest of Gulf County and its current residents to
move the road and develop this-area ip the fashion the owner (St. J9e) has
voiced its desires. The ultimate impact on our environment, cherished
amenities, and our wonderfully unique small community way of life will
be less impacted by St. Joe Company's plans than any other pption--
except to do nothing.
The do nothing option is the first thing we need to get out of our
heads-it's not really an option. This parcel of property is going to be
developed whether we like it or not.
There's not one person I'm aware of who would not rather see all 3.74
miles of beachfront, the road, and every sea oat between the road and St.
Joseph Bay stay exactly as it is. In fact, if we could freeze time, or better
yet, back, up a few years, 'savoring the times we "locals" had an almost
Robinson Crusoe existence with free reins to our own paradise island ...
.aahhh- .
Wake up!!! Wake up!!l It's over-I'm.already catching myself telling my
children and grandchildren, "I remember when ." You know what I'm
saying because I'm sure most of you have done the same thing.
Area Will Change
This area of beachfront will be changing over the next few years
regardless of what happens with the road. The St. Joe Company will either
go forward with the plans it hopes to develop or the plans will be altered
to fit a development which leaves the road intact. In reality, the latter sce-
nario probably makes as much or more money for the company than the
full scale development plan.would-it just wouldn't be as nice for them or
the community.
The reasons I fully support moving the roadway are exactly the same
reasons most of the objectors object to moving it. Their plan will have the
very least amount of impact on the area, and allow free roaming access
just as we currently have.
*St. Joe's development plan calls for at least two very large beach
access points with all the supporting amenities to make a visit to the
beach run-parking, dune walkovers, unobstructed views, pier, bathroom -
facilities, private areas, walking/biking boardwalk, etc.
*It also would be an open subdivision: so if I, or you, or whoeseri,want-
ed to ride along the beachfront road and see the sun set, visit some shops,
or look at the development, it would be just like riding through most any
other developed area in Gulf County.
*The special part about the plan is the part where the beach stays
basically just as it is. There will not be homes built down to the water-
front, nor will condos, motels, or hotels steal away the view. The develop-
ment would be a low density, upscale subdivision built landward of exist-
ing Highway 98 that draws value to inland property by leaving the jewel
(the beachfront) intact for all to enjoy.
*St. Joe also builds a new road and ,provides right-of-way for phase
two and phase three of a "back beach road" concept that extends to Tyn-
dall Air Force Base. This is an unbelievably giant step forward for future
infrastructure. Communities throughout the nation wish they could have
built and planned for this sort of infrastructure prior to actually needing
it, and finding out it's either too late or impossible to afford because devel-
opment has made nghts-ol-way impractical to attain. It is' very true that
St. Joe would pick up valuable piece of real estate with the old road, but
it's not as if they are getting something for nothing.
There is just less than 20,000 foot (approximately 46 acres) of road-
way along that 3.74 mile stretch. A good measuring stick for estimating
value of this beach property would be to look at what the St. Joe Compa-
ny is charging for property equally as far back from the beachfront at its
WindMark Beach Subdivision, located at Dixie Belle Curve, using the cost
and size of lots located equally as far from the beach (average distance of
500 feet) the roadbed has.a'value of somewhere just. over $9 million. The'
dollar value of St. Joe's commitment for new roadway and paving is $24

harmless like between the end of
the NASCAR race in Atlanta and
the start of the second quarter of

*Along with all of the tangible,
reasons' there is also the equally
important intangible one--half of
1% of all sales goes directly back to
the county, contributions to
schools and improved education,
the. arts, medical facilities, and
more. Seldom a week goes by that

I remember one day, after I

why should I have to go around

the customers should bring him

I can't believe this! Best I
remember that stuff was quite
expensive when we put it down

what it would cost today! "Honey,

"We might put-up a new light

could put up some pictures of the

some of those old gloves."
The woman had lost her mar-

somewhere and forgotten all about
his papers to be delivered.
It was my job to hunt
him-and his papers-up, so he
could finish the job.

IT WAS ABOUT this time the
job of delivering papers was takbn
over by ladies and men who had a
car. The newspapers all started
printing in the mornings, iAflter

Being an active member of the
.community is something that
Arizona Chemical's Port St. Joe
plant prides itself on.
-* When the local police depart-
ment asked for financial assis-
tance to purchase new lines for its
.community-wiqe emergency noti-
ftcation system, Arizona Chemical
) was happy to help and provided a
$5,000 grant to allow ,for an
Sexxpansion of this important sys-
'temi.
"We're proud to be in Port St.
Joe, proud of the work that our
team members do here, and
proud of the strong relationship
we have with our neighbors and
civic leaders," said Hal Beyer,
plant manager. "When we. can
.help with a project like this
one-upgrading the emergency
;notification system for the larger
Gilf County area-we're not only
making a difference here, but
Across this community."
The Port St. Joe Police
.Department requested funds to
purchase two, four-line comm u ni-
cation ports to be installed in the
S new CitWVatch community-wide
emergency notification system.
This automated system broad-
casts both voice and fax messages
in the event of hurricane evacua-
tions. missing children, manufac-
turing spills or other emergencies.
The expansion of the system
will allow Gulf County Emergency
'- lanageinent. Emergency 'Medical


Services, the Sheriffs office and
the Health Department to estab-
lish eight additional phone lines
and extend the system for public
safety and community service
communications out across the
county.
"It is our hope that no emer-
gencies-hurricane or otherwise-
occur in the area," Beyer added.
"But this additional planning on
the part of our local emergency
officials, along with the purchase
of this.upgraded equipment, will
be of great assistance in the event
that broader communications are
needed."
Employees at the Port St. Joe
plant manufacture tall oil rosin,
tall oil fatty acids, distilled tall oil
and rosin esters that are used in
the adhesive, inks, coatings and
rubber industries.

Disaster Loans for Red Tide Victims


Meeting Thursday in Apalachi-
colafor information and sign-up.
At the request of Governor
Jeb Bush, the U.S. Small
Business Administration (SBA)
has declared Franklin, Gulf,
Liberty, and Wakulla counties a
disaster area due to economic
injury resulting from Red Tide,
which closed the Apalachicola Bay
to commercial oystering. This dec-
laration makes low-interest, dis-
aster loans available to qualified
small businesses and agricultural
cooperatives affected by this dis-
aster.
The declaration was reques-
ted by Gov. Bush after the seri-
ousness of the issue was raised by
Rep. Will Kendrick of Carrabelle,
who serves a portion of the
affected area in the legislature.
"The commercial fishing, oyster
harvesting, and other businesses
that rely upon Apalachicola Bay
for their livelihood desperately
need this assistance now," said
Gov. Bush. "I appreciate the
prompt response by the federal
government to honor our request
so that these Floridians do not
suffer any further economic set-
backs."
Economic Injury Disaster
Loans are made available to small
businesses unable to pay bills
and meet expenses because of
this disaster. The deadline for
business owners and agricultural
cooperatives to apply for federal
assistance is August 21, 2002.
"I am extremely pleased with
the cooperation and commitment
of Gov. Bush to help people that
depend upon Apalachicola Bay,"
said Rep. Kendrick. "These people
need our help now more than
ever, and I am so pleased that the

The contest will actually have
,two categories, each* with first,

which areas of the county to visit.
The water-view houses will be

Although I've never possessed
a membership card in the John

Most of my Dad's sisters
already live in Florida, so we've
been Floridians by association if
not by address for years. One lives
in Bradenton, one in Orlando and
the other spends half the year in

because they were picked way too
early for shipping). Although I
prefer wilted lettuce, I'm no
stranger to turnip or dandelion
greens. In fact my grandpa
upended his 1964 Ford pickup
truck (nose first) into a ditch when
he spotted some bodacious mus-
tard greens growing along a ditch, ,

Then it was to Virginia (which, by'
the way, I always considered a'

it was really cold there). Then

Actually, it was a little more
deliberate than'that. Some fve or

Tree Care
Although artificial Christ-
mas trees have gained consider-
Sable popularity in recent years,
primarily because of-their conve-
nience and consistent appear-
ance, .many people still prefer a
real tree. If you're a traditionalist,
and plan to have a natural tree,
it's important that you shop early
and take good care of your pur-
chase from the moment you get it
home until the holidays are over.
Regardless of the type of
natural Christmas- tree you
choose-an imported fir, pine,
spruce, or a native Florida red
cedar-you should select a fresh,
wvell-shaped tree. Before buying,
decide where you'll display the
tree, so you'll know exactly what
size to purchase. If you plan to
put the tree in a corner or against
a wall, you might buy one with a
bad side,, and save a few dollars.
It's important to shop at a
Christmas tree lot where the trees
are well displayed, so you can
really see what you're getting for
your money. Once you find a fresh
tree of the right size and shape,
you need to know how to take care
of it properly.
If you buy your tree several
days before you plan to set it up,
store it outdoors in a c6ol area
under shade or in a carport. Cut

Calls For Coats
ALLTEL, in partnership with,
the Salvation Army, is collecting
coats to donate to area children as
part of ALLTEL's Call for Coats
campaign.
"Having a warm coat to wear
on a cold winter day is a comfort
that most people may take for
granted," said Major Gene-Gesner.
corps officer ofthe Salvation'Army
in Tallahassee. "Yet in reality,
many area children do not have
coats or continue to wear the ones
they have outgrown. W\e are very
grateful for ALLTEL's willingness
to help in the effort to provide
children with much-needed
coats."
Individuals can donate coats
at any ALLTEL retail store from
now through December 14. ALL-
TEL will then present the coats to
the Salvation Army.
"Answering ALLTEL's Call
for Coats is a simple way to put
the warmth back in the holiday'
season for area children," said
Carlvin Steed. ALLTEL's vice pres-
ident and general manager for' the
Florida Panhandle market area.,
"We hope everybody will take a few
minutes to stop by their nearest
ALLTEL retail store and donate
any coats they, no longer .uSe or
consider buying a new coat to
donate while out Christmas shop-
ping."
ALLTEL in the Port St., Joe ,
area is located at 200 Reid
. Avenue.

What a delightful afternoon
that was! Your building and yard
were lovely; I have wanted to visit
both for some time. Your recent
work really shows.
The program was really first
class! Terry and Devin have to be
incredibly organized as well as
being very talented. They made it
all look so easy!!
The delicious food was a nice
surprise. You ladies are good
cooks as well as able gardeners.
I'd also like to add a word of
appreciation for the support
you've given for Carmel Dodson's
class garden. It is always amaz-
ingly successful.
Thanks again for a most
pleasant afternoon. Please do it
again next year.

Tree Care
--From Page 6A
through the sturip. Now place the
tree in a stand that holds water.
Be sure you keep the stand filled
Sat all times. It's surprising how
quickly a good-size tree can take
-up a quart of water. So,' check the,
.water level at least once a day.
Place your tree in the coolest
part of the room. Keep It away.
from things like fireplaces. radia-
tors, air ducts, even tv sets. The
heat from these can cause the tree
needles to dry out and' drop off
very quickly.
Proper Christmas tree care
is only part of the story. There are
certain safety rules you should
follow carefully. Never use candles
or anything with an open lame on
Sor near the tree. If you are using
electric lights, check them over
very carefully for loose connec-
tions and worn wires. Don't over-
load your electrical circuits. If you
must use an extension cord, run
it out of the way of foot traffic, and
be sure it's heavy enough for the
current load. Always turn the tree
lights off when you leave home or
go to-bed. ..
Buying and caring for your
Chnstmas tree may not be the
weightiest problem on your mind
as we move into the Christmas
season. But, if you plan to have a
natural Christmas tree in your
home this year, you'll need to give
some thought to ,both subjects.
Keep in mind that a fresh .tree'
with good shape and sturdy
branches usually will make the
best tree for displaying and deco-
rating. Make sure you keep the
tree in the coolest possible place,
and that you water it every day.
Take the time to properly care for
your Christmas tree, and it will
reward your efforts with radiant
beauty throughout the holiday
season.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2001 PAGE 9A


The all new "Edition #5 AARP
Driver Safety Program", is being
sponsored by the Port St. Joe
AARP. It will be held at the Senior
Center, 120 Library Street in
Tuesday and Wednesday, Decem-
ber 4th and 5th, from 9:00 am. till
1:00 p.m. ET. If your, insurance
discount is running out, you need
this class now. It is a driver safety
program for all those drivers 50
years of age and over. There are
no:examinations, no driving tests
and no chance of losing your
license.
Classes will be presented in
two four-hour sessions, instruc-
ted by Dick McLaughlin, a fully
trailed AARP volunteer. A certifi-
cate will be issued upon comple-
tion of the program that can get
you a discount on your auto
insurance. These certificates are
good for three :years, then the
course must be taken again.
There is nothing to lose but a lit-
tle time, with an awful lot to gain.
To cover some of the expenses a


fee of $10 per person, preferably
in the form of a check made out to
AARP, will be collected.
This highly effective driver
program, approved and encour-
aged by the state and federal gov-
ernments, is being presented to
reduce traffic accidents, violations
and fatalities for senior citizens
and their loved ones. The program
will show senior drivers how to
cope with the age-related physical
changes we are all facing; how to
become more aware of and to han-
dle hazardous road and weather
conditions. New laws, highway
signs and road markings, and the
safety aspect of driving; ways to
handle the dangers of alcohol and
medications, and ways to avoid
the criminal while getting into,
out of, and while driving a car,
and much more will be covered.
Call Dick McLaughlin at
850/648-3067 to make your
reservation now since space is
limited. Walk ins welcome 'if the
class is not filled.

Sharks No 'Easy Pickins'

in Turkey Bowl Classic


They did us all proud. Our
PSJ Sharks all-star team com-
peted in their first ever Turkey
Bowl Classic on Thanksgiving
weekend. The competition ex-
pected this small town team to be
easy pickings. Were they sur-
prised! The first game was on
Thanksgiving Day with the
Sharks playing the Center Point
Packers from Birmingham, AL.
The Packers ihad lost only one
game all year, the championship
game for the Birmingham area.
Then they met the Sharks.
This was a defensive struggle
from the beginning. The highly
touted Packer offense could not
move the ball against the Shark
attacking defense. The Shark
offense was having its problems,
too. No wonder, the Packer
defense was big and fast and they
hit hard. Then, with 4:35 left in
the second quarter, the Sharks
took possession at their own 46.
After two plays that gained only
one yard it looked like they may
have to punt again. Then, despite
a ferocious pass rush, Fonda
Da~is threw a beautiful pass to
Rock Quinn for a first down at the
39. Quinn followed up with an 11-
yard scamper. On: th'nriext play.
DarrelfSmith went up the middle,
cut to the outside and went 28
yards for the TD. The PAT attempt
failed.
S Those six points were all the
scoring in the ballgame. In the
second half the Shark defense
continued' to play outstanding
Ball. Time and again one player
after another made a big hit to
stop the Packer offense. With ten
seconds left, Javiun Langston
saved a touchdown by tackling a
Packer player at the five. The
Packer coaches came charging on
the field,and had a flag thrown on
them'twice for unsportsmanlike

conduct, moving the ball back to
the 32. Bobby Garrett topped off
an outstanding defensive job by
sacking the Packer quarterback to
end the game and give the Sharks
the win in a major upset.
On Friday morning the
Sharks met the East Lake
Cowboys, a traveling team from
Birmingham that picks from a
pool of 5,000 players. They have
not been. beaten in this tourna-
ment in six years. The Sharks
gave them all they could handle.
There was no score in the ball-
game until just over three min-
utes left in the third penod. Then,
a Cowboy runner broke out on a
long run for a touchdown. They
added an insurance score in the
last quarter to win it 13 to 0. Their
coaches and everyone at the game
were amazed at the outstanding
performance of the Sharks.
On Friday afternoon the
Sharks played again, this time
against the Herbert Hoover Eagles'
from St. Louis, MO. The boys were
physically and emotionally ex-
hausted from the game that
morning. The Eagles had a full
day to rest from their previous'
game. The Sharks were never in it
with a final score 39-0.
These young men did a.won-
derful job of representing Port St.
Joe in the tournament. They
played their 'hearts out' against
much bigger and faster teams
that had been together all year.
Our team, made up of players
from the Jaguars, Dolphins, Tiny
Sharks and Eagles had practiced
together only three weeks.
Nevertheless, they won against a
highly favored team and held the
perennial champions scoreless for
almost three quarters.
Congratulations Sharks!

way just gives them more land to
sell. Others have guessed at val-
ues and suggested the company
should pay "fair market price" for
the road.
"We will not build on or mar-
ket the old 98 roadbed," said
-John Hendry, as he explained
that moving the road allowed the
f "jewel" (the beach and connected
inland areas) to be retained for
everyone to enjoy as they are.
S How Much Is it Worth?
*In establishing value of the
property associated with the
:roadway, it first has to be estab-
lished how much property is


being talked about. The 3.74
miles x 100 foot right-of-way
stretch is approximately 46 acres
of property. Looking at compara-
ble pieces of property located in
the area and an equal distance
from the water, one doesn't have
to look far. Property located at St.
Joe Company's WindMark Beach
Subdivision provides excellent
comparison figures.
Those lots sell for $400,000
beachfront, $300,000 second tier,
$200,000 third tier, and $100,000
fourth tier. The roadway is located
an average of approximately 500
feet from the water, which would


From Page 1A

make comparative lot values be
no more than the $100,000 figure
based on surrounding markets.
At two lots per acre, this would
make 46 acres worth somewhere
in the range of $9.2 million.
Both Smallwood and Hendry
were quick to point out that lots
would be valued higher than this
amount. But, that value could
only be achieved by leaving the
beach intact and undeveloped to
draw inland value.
St. Joe Company has commit-
ted to give a total of 266 acres of
right-of-way for the three phases
of the "back beach road" concept


(nearly six acres to one) and com-
pletely fund phase one construc-
tion at an estimated value of $24
million.
What Do We Get In Return
S For Giving Up The Road?
>:' Residents want to know
how it benefits them to even con-
sider giving, up the road when
:they have the view and the access
now.
Views and access are the
very reason that company officials
cite when they discuss "why move
the road?" In order to maintain
the same view, they would subdi-
vide inland and develop
"unmatched" public access areas
complete with all the, necessary
amenities along the beach-dune
walkovers, parking, pier,
restrooms, spacious parking,
walking/cycling/jogging board-
walk extending parallel to the
beachfront open for the public
and residents to use at, their con-
venience.
Going one step further, area
residentss can travel the roads
throughout the development via
car if they so desire, just as they
,do now in other developments
throughoutt the county.
iWhat About Future Access?
Smallwood stated that one
only needs to look at other St. Joe
developments to see where the
,company is heading. WaterColor
in Walton County, Southwood in
Leon County, and now WindMark
SBeach in Gulf County are. all open
communities.
Will The Roadway Create A
Traffic Nightmare By
Intersecting Back Into St.
Joe Beach?
>- Residents are worried that
the traffic along Highway 98 will
increase and the. new roadway
Should only create a dangerous
traffic problem along the current


Pilings/support walls are going up for the WindMark Beach
development sales office, located just west of Dixie Belle curve.

area.
"Ultimately, we desire to be a
part of bringing a better quality of
enjoyment to this area, at the
same time we have to increase
shareholders' value-this is one of
those unique opportunities where
both goals can be accomplished,"
said Smallwood.
SWell, I Just Don't Like St.
Joe Company!
> Some residents have stated
that if St. Joe Company is for it,
they are against it.
"I'm sorry, I can't do
anything about that," .said
Smallwood. He went on to say he
personally would be glad to talk
with anyone that wants to discuss
the issues and explain the compa-
ny's actions or answer any
questions he could. Ultimately,
the company has committed to be
a good corporate citizen in the
community and feels its actions
have reflected that stance.-,.,
Public Hearing Scheduled
The public hearing will be
held at the Port St. Joe High
School Commons Area on
December 13th from 5:30 to 8:30
p.m., ET, located at 100 Shark
Avenue in Port St. Joe.
Copies of the draft State
Environmental Impact Report and
draft Preliminary Engineering
Report that document the find-
ings of the PD&E Study are avail-
able for public review at the Gulf
County Public Library, located at
110 Library Drive in Port St. Joe.
The agenda includes an open
house for the public to review,.the
hearing documents from 5:30 to
6:00, a presentation by St. Joe
Company/Arvida on the project
and its associated impacts from
6:00 to 6:30, and a period for
public testimony from 6:30 to
8:30.
Before and after the hearing,
St.. Joe Company/Arvlda repre-

roadway along Highway 98 at St.
Joe Beach, Beacon Hill, and
Mexico Beach.
Smallwood said this was a
message that the company heard
loud and clear during the previ-
ous public hearings. That is one
of the reasons 'the planning for
phase two and phase three of the
"back beach road" project are
moving forward rapidly (study
work should get underway \within
'the next few months).
He continued stating that this
was also arl issue in which the
state would protect the public's
interest through the DRI
(Development of Regional Impact)
study.
The state has assigned num-
bers and traffic flow figures to the
road, and before developments
can pass thresholds, of comple-
tion, they must address traffic,
education, medical, environmen-
tal, and many other such issues.
Smallwood said the DRI process'
would likely, take 18 months at a
minimum, and by the time future
construction got underway, this
issue and others would be fully
addressed and the public,
because of the DRI public hearing
process, would be included in the
planning.
What Will Happen To The
Current Roadway?
As stated, the area will not
be built on. Hendry said the road
would be taken out and areas
would be' restored as dunes and
other portions would be included
inr pathways/boardwalks, for the
future use and enjoyment of resi-
dents,'visitors, and public.
We Have Public Access Now!
Smallwood was reminded of
the Cape San Blas area several
years ago when this question was.
posed. Some residents believe
that because they use the area
then. they in some way have
future legal access privileges.
,Case law is plainly in favor of
the invitor in the cases of invitee
status access. But, again the real
issue from St. Joe's standpoint is

The county board will consid-
er the new ordinance during its
December 11th meeting.
Personnel Policy
Risk Management Director
Warren Yeager presented the
board with a proposed personnel
policy for the non-bargaining unit
county employees. He explained
that 'the new policy addressed
several issues including drug pol-
icy, equal employment opportu-
nity, and sexual harassment.
It also addresses administra-
tive staff as contract employees
and requirements of an "extraor-
dinary vote" (4-1) to terminate
employees.
The new policy passed by a 4-
1 vote with only Commissioner
Nathan Peters, Jr. voicing objec-
tion to the policy.
Yeager also suggested the
board implement a safety pro-
gram-incentive based-focusing
on reducing lost time accidents.
The board agreed to look at the
idea, but it would have to be part
of the union bargaining process.

ing in the negotiations. If Gulf is
successful. the company would

Drilless



Microdentistry


In years past dentists were
forced to diagnose dental decay
on the chewing surfaces of teeth
by using a dental "pic" or explor-
er, and then treating these cavi-
ties with a drill and silver-mer-
cury fillings.
Not any more!
With the advent of laser
scanning devices dentists can
scan the pits and grooves of
your teeth with the laser and
determine how much, if any,


decay is present in a tooth. Any
cavities can be treated without a
shot or using the drill.
: The instrument that replaces
the drill is a micro-air abrasion
unit, which works like an ultra-
small sandblaster to cut away
the defective tooth but leaves the
healthy tooth intact, This small
preparation (about the diameter
of a pencil lead) is then filled
with a tooth-colored filling mate-
rial and bonded into place with a
broad spectrum high intensity
curing light.
The resulting tooth-colored.
filling is small, does not weaken
the tooth, and should last a life-

By Roy Ogles
In Florida, prior to recent set-
tlement and development, light-
ning ignited-fires burned
landscape sized areas on a pretty
regular basis. Different habitat
types and plant species them-
selves have evolved and adapted
to periodic burning. In fact, many
species of rare and unusual
plants actually require fire for
their continued existence.
Periodic burning also keeps fuel
levels lowered to avoid cata-
strophic wildfires like those seen
recently in central Florida.
Lands surrounding St. Joe
Bay are home to many endan-
gered, threatened or otherwise
unusual plants. Florida skullcap,
Telephus spurge, pine-woods
aster, tropical waxweed, and
Chapman's rhododendron are all
recognized as globally significant
species which occur on lands in
the St. Joseph Bay Buffer'
Preserve project area. In all, some
16 rare plants may occur on the
preserve. These publicly owned
lands are purchased specifically
to protect the aquatic resources of
St. Joe Bay and to protect the rare
plants found there. The undevel-
oped lands west and south of the
Costin airport and across from
Treasure Shores Lodge on St. Joe
Bay are part of the preserve.
Buffer preserve staff conduct
burns which mimic naturally-
occurring fires. These are termed
"prescribed burns". Staff have
already burned some interior por-
tions of the preserve, and will be

each zone before burning to pre-
vent any escapes and to keep the
overall fire-impactedarea to a rea-
sonable size. This also helps to
lessen any excessive amount of
residual smoke in the area. Roads
and wet areas are sometimes used
as firebreaks, but most firebreaks
are disked lines surrounding the
burn zone.
Preserve staff conduct pre-
scribed burns using specialized
equipment such as w.oods-able
fire trucks, all terrain vehicles
with' sprayers, a stand-by tractor,
drip torches and numerous hand
tools. Usually six or more trained
staff conduct the burns. Also, the
Florida Division of Forestry (DOF)
is kept aware of burning activity
and responds to any emergency
situation during burning. DOF is
the permitting agency for Florida
burners. Expert DOF staff moni-
tor local and state weather and
drought conditions continually.
The local fire department is noti-
fied of burn activity and assists
when needed. The Gulf County
Sheriffs Office and the Florida
Highway Patrol are notified of
scheduled fires as well.
Weather factors play a major
role in conducting prescribed

to be suitable for safe burning.
The forecast wind direction has to
be safe for burning and to lessen
the impact of smoke. All of the
correct weather factors, crew size,
firebreak preparation and equip-
ment requirements are deter-
mined beforehand in the
"prescription" .written for each
burn zone. The prescription states
all the conditions to be met before
burning is conducted.
Prescribed burning is hot,
demanding work requiring great
care and expertise. After a burn
the natural area looks black and
charred lor a good while. After one
good growing season however, the
new growth and abundant flower-
ing of lush foliage changes the
landscape. [n areas that haven't
been burned for many years, the
chances of destructive wildfires
have been greatly reduced, help-
ing to protect surrounding homes
and property.
Residents of Gulf County and
the St. Joe Bay area can be proud
of their conservation lands in

Conditions Are Right For Buying The

Higher Priced Home

You've Always Wanted

By Susie White II ..
Higher interest rates and home prices in the.past have kept home owners '
from purchasing larger homes. The current real estate market conditions, .
however, are encouraging for many homeowners who want to "buy up" to
higher priced homes with more to offer.
If youare considering trading up for a larger and more expensive home,
conditions for doing so couldn't get much better. Interest rates are the lowest '
they've been in two decades, and home prices in many regions are the most
affordable they've been in years. :
,You should consider a few factors, before reaching a decision t.otrade up:
Can you afford higher mortgage payments and properly ,
taxes?
Is your credit record solid enough to qualify for the probable '
higher monthly mortgage payments? '
Do you plan to stay in your new home long enough to recoup your investment?
Obviously, you'll need to sell your current home before getting serious about trading up to a new one. A healthy
real estate market indicates that you'll have little trouble selling your existing home. The National Association of
Realtors reported in August that sales of existing single-family homes are rising steadily, especially among first-time
buyers. Affordable home prices and low interest rates'could make the starter home you purchased several years ago
particularly attractive.
You'll still need a significant down payment on a new house. If you can afford the up-front cost, you may want
to consider switching the fixed-rate mortgage on your old house for an adjustable rate on a new one. This could allow
you to trade up without increasing your monthly payments.
The type of mortgage you choose also depends on how long you plan to stay in your new home. A good mort-
gage lender can advise you on whether a fixed-rate is an advantage, if you're planning on staying for more than 10
years. A fixed-rate may be better for long term owners who don't want to worry about rising mortgage payments.
Trading up may not be worth the move if you're planning on living in the new home for only a couple of years.
You might have to stay three to five years for your house to appreciate enough to recoup the closing costs.
Conditions for a move-up haven't been this good in many years, and you may not want to wait much longer to
consider it. An experienced real estate broker can help you decide if buying a new house now is a good investment
for you.

The Thanksgiving Blessing
by Katie Hoffman
"Okay Mom, I'll say the bless-
ing today before ',we eat our
Thanksgiving meal this year," I
said, hoping Mom would change
her mind and let my sister bless
the food.
I remember every 'Thanksgiv-
ing Mom picked who would bless
our food. Last Thanksgiving Mom
asked me. I decided in my prayer
to: address what 'I was most
thankful for. I told them I was
thankful for friends, family, and a
great church family.
My first 'choice was' my
friends. Without -my .friends -to
hang. out with and talk-to I don't
know what I would do. I am
thankful for my friends because
they are always there for me. For
example, when my grandma died
three years ago my friends were
there for me to comfort me when I
needed them, most. My most
thankful friend would have to be
Haley Watford because whenever I
am down or depressed Haley is
always there to cheer me up..
Sometimes. my. friends and I
argue. However, the best thing
about being friends is the next
da\- w\e are iiLost likely to be "'
Intends again. Ilts-'thredible ha\-'
"ing friends, during this difficult
time in our nation's history.
I'm sure just about everyone
is thankful for his or her family; I
know for sure I am. -I know my
family loves me and cares for me.
One fact I am sure of is that
school has not, taught me every-
thing I know, but my family has.

They taught me how to love, care
and how to be responsible like
they are. My family consists of
Sharon, Scott, Sara, and me,
Katie Hoffman. When I don't have
my friends to lean on or discuss
things with,I know that my family
will be there. I am thankful for my.
family and they are thankful for
me!
My church family is another
area in which I am thankful. This
family is not the same as my reg-
ular family. My church family
consists of my church, all my
Christian friends, and my
Christian neighbors. These people
have not only helped me grow
physically and mentally, but also
spiritually. They have taught -me
what I need to know in order to
understand life more clearly. An
example of my church family that
is very special to me would be the
Colberts. They have been a great
blessing to me. I believe that if our
church family would stick togeth-
er we could accomplish anything.
Finally, I knew what I was going
to say during the thanksgiving
prayer. I was going to address-my
three most thankful topics. My
three topics were my friends, fam-
ily, and church family:' I knew'-I
would be more than ready to say
the blessing Thanksgiving Day.
