Hwy. 98 Plan Gets Support




Public Meeting Speakers Overwhelmingly Favor Plan 6-1


Approximately 400 Gulf
County residents gathered in the
Port St. Joe High School
Commons Area last -Thursday
evening to voice their disdain,
offer support for or just learn
more about a proposed Highway
98 realignment plan and future
development desires by the St.'
Joe Company.
A total of 45 people seized the.
opportunity to voice their opin-
ions and. for the most part. the
overwhelming majority voiced
their support, The resounding"
themes of support included eco-
nomic development, conservation
of accesses to the area im its pns-
tine. state, support of quality low
density develnnment. better road-


ways (Back Beach Road), and jobs
both for the present and future.
On the other hand, opposition
speakers feared that phase one
would cause traffic congestion
along St. Joe Beach, wanted the
existing roadway to remain as it
is. wanted assurances things
would be done as plans stated, or
just objected because they dis-
agree with St. Joe Company.
Thirty-SLx of the 45 speakers
supported the project; six
opposed the project; and three
either had questions. concerns or
would support it with guarantees
or stipulations from St. Joe.

plans between St. Joe Beach and

only for the company. but also for
Gulf County.
Smallwood, who was fighting
off'a cold, explained that develop-
ment of infrastructure is "crucial
part of any development process."

and that much of the planning
currently taking place was meant
to 'get ahead of the curve."
Roads were not the only

important were education, health-
care. and other needs within a


critical component to what's hap-

Blue Cross Part 3
Postponed for a Week
SOver the past two weeks. The
Star as been running a special.a
series on "Blue Cross" insurance
and reimbursement fees.
These articles have focused

small and community hospitals
which are struggling to receive
reimbursement, fee rates that
allow them to. make money when
dealing with the insurance firm.
Part three will not appear in
this week's issue of The Star

assignments on; tap for us. The
article series will continue in sub-
sequent issues of The Star.
Part three will address .
How .does this impact policyhold-
ers in rural areas and small
cities?


Ten Gulf County inmates
probably had one of their most
unique experiences since being
incarcerated Monday night when
they spent the night in an Air
Force barrack style tent with Gulf
County Sheriff Frank McKeithen.
The Gulf County Jail is cur-
rently in the midst of a major ren-
ovation project. For several years,
the jail has been a maintenance
nightmare, frequently being a
topic of discussion at Gulf County
Commission meetings, as
bandaid after bandaid was used


to patch perpetual problems. ,
When work started on the
inside. over half of the inmate
housing area was basically lost
while workers began making
major renovations and adding an
additional 900 square feet to the
Gulf County Jail. Nearly half of
the jail capacity was lost-29
beds-and Sheriff McKeithen and
commissioners began to, work on
solutions to handle surplus
inmates.

Gis Thing Which


1as Come to Pass

A And it came to pass in those days. that there went
*out a 'decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the
world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first
madee when Cyrenlus was governor of Syria.)

And all went to be taxed, everyone into his own
.city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of
the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of
.David, which is called Bethlehem (because he was
of the house and lineage of David) to be taxed with
:::Mary, his espoused wife, being great with child.

,'And so it was, that, while, they were there, the
:days were accomplished that she should be deliv-'
ered. And.she brought forth her firstborn son, and
wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in
a: manger, because there was no room for them in
the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds
abiding in the feld, keeping watch over their flock
by, night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon
.the'rn, and the glory of the Lord shone round about
,:* ,. 1 them' and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto
them, Fear not; for behold,
I bring you good tidings of
S- great joy, which shall be
Sto all people. For unto
k you is born this day in
Sthe city of David, a
Saviour, which is Christ
the Lord. And this shall
be a sign unto you; Ye
shall find the babe
wrapped in swaddling


clothes and lying
manger.

W. And suddenly there was with
the angel a multitude of the heavenly host prailing
God and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and
on earth peace, good will to men.

And it came to pass as the angels were gone away
from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to
another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem. and
see this thing which has come to pass which the
Lord hath made known to us.

And they came with haste, and found Mary, and
Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when
they had seen it. they made known abroad the
saying which was told them concerning this child.
And all they that heard it wondered at those things
which were told them by the shepherds.

But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them
in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorify-
ing and praising God for all the things that they
had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

A Man's Work Is Never Done In This Hectic Season!

IF YOU DON'T have' your ,, "' : M s work nreer done! allows me to carry around in my She can't even use


Christmas shopping done yet,
you'd better get on the stick!
Christmas will be here in just
a few days.
And, that reminds me that I
haven't bought Frenchie ,a, gift,
yet. I just did get in under the wire
getting her -a birthday gift. That
comes along on December 14th,
and the two. sort of crowd. me,
what with their coming so close
together and all.
I saw by the paper last week,
where old Kes has the same prob-
lem I have; arid the same problem
most of you men have, also. What
Sdo you give a lady who has every-
thing?
I mean, after all, she" has a
toaster, vacuum cleaner, washing
machine, dryer, plenty of lamps,
-couches [she has so many she is
giving them away to the kids],
pots, dishes, coffee makers, etc..
what more could she want?
She has EVERYTHING!
I plan to do my Christmas


shopping early this year. I think
I'll get at it today or tomorrow
rather than wait until' Christmas
Eve this year. I'm too unsteady on
my feet to be fighting g the shopping
crowds, and the parking spaces in
front of the stores I wish to shop
in are all taken up. A person's
handicapped parking sticker is
only good if there is a handi-
capped space left to park in.

I HAD NEVER thought of just
how many gifts a man is expected
to buy in his lifetime, until Kes did
the math on it last week.
Everybody points to women as
being the "shopping animal" of the


species, but a man has almost a
full time job buying gifts he's
expected to .for his wife .
No wonder. fwo florists can
make'it in this small town; even
though the economy isn't the best
in-the world!
Men are forever faced' with
having to purchase these' "inci-'
dental" gifts, because they needed
a new shotgun; or a newdriver; or
a new'fielders mitt; or a new boat '
and motor.., you know, the
necessities of life..
* A purchase of these items is
always followed by a trip to the
florist to purchase an appease-
ment gift.


EVEN THOUGH I amideter'-
mined to'do my Christmas shop-
ping early this year. I still don't
know what tb' get .my wife for
Christmas.
SSome men SAY they just' hand
their wife some money and tell her
to go buy herself something with.
it ... .
I can just see that ploy going
overlike a lead balloon. The
" "waterworks" would turn on with
a ssnivelling accusation that "you
don't love me anymore you
c6uld have. bought a can of frozen
biscuits arid wrapped then up
pretty for the tree and I would
have been satisfied because YOU.
had picked it out!"
.Yeah! .
And how can you hand your
wife the money to buy her present
with, when she has it all anyhowi?:
I don't know about you, but
my wife. handles the money
already-all but the change she


pockets ior my needs
;,:, She wouldn't be able to pur-
chase, much of a Christmas gift
with. the money I could give her.

I'M NOT VERY GOOD at gift
selection anyhow.
Usually, the first item I come
,across in the store, if it's red, it's
perfectly acceptable as a gift and
anybody' should be thrilled .to
receive it.
Even if it's a set of knitted
potholders.'
I don't go for those Ronco Veg-
A-Matics like Kes does. He must
get farther into the store than I
do. I've never seen one offered-
: inoeven in St. Joe Hardware!
I can't imagine Frenchie ever
using one of those gadgets any-
how. She's not overly mechanical-
ly inclined..
If it gets beyond a mixer :she
uses to whip up those exotic
cakes with-she's lost!


a "George


foreman gnll
That's another gift I have
foisted off on her in a Christmas
past only to have it given away to
one of the kids!

STHE ONLY GIFT I have ever
Given heri and had it "stick" was a
diamond ring a couple of years
back.
When we got married 65 years
ago, I gave her a Sears & Roebuck
diamond ring set which cost me a
whole $128.00 forboth rings!
Bought on time! I sort of felt guilty
with her going through life with
this "el cheapo" wedding set, so I
saved the egg money for a couple
of years and.bought her a real dia-
mond ring. ,. .,and she promptly
lost the set out of it!
I'll work on selecting her a
Christmas gift all next week [this
'is written 12/13], but in the
meantime, I am strapped with
what to get her for her birthday,
too!

than projected. Another $100,000
was subtracted after an FTE
adjustment audit; $50,000

$32,052 from contested mill
taxes; and $62,219 reduction in

for a grand total of $796,627 in
shortfalls from the school board's

Kelley said several steps have
been taken to help reduce the
impact. A hiring. freeze has been
instituted and all non-essential
spending has been stopped. Other
efforts will include cutting back or
limiting travel and reducing sub-
stitute teachers where possible.
"Anywhere we can save
money, we will," Kelley said.
"We've done everything we
can to keep all our personnel
working and maintaining salaries

Keith Jones said of the ceremony,
"The purpose of the induction is
twofold-to begin a new member's
Kiwanis, career in a meaningful
way and for current members to
reflect on the purpose of Kiwanis;
and membership in the club.
Therefore, this ceremony focuses
on the importance of personal
sponsorship of a new member-
and what it means to be a
Kiwaniah." New members for the.
club mean new ideas, new enthu-
siasm, greater, fellowship and
greater service, and therefore are
welcomed to join the organization.


Those who were driving by
the Chateau Nemours on Monday
afternoon saw a wonderful exam-
ple of celebration and community
spirit. St. Joe/Arvida project
manager John Hendry asked the
members of the. Port' St Joe
Garden Club if they would deco-
rate the Chateau for Christmas.
Always looking for a fund-raiser,
the club accepted the challenge.

SCommittee chairman Delaine
Henderson worked with Brenda
Ward, Ann Eason, Jackie FHance,
Zebe Schmitt, and prospective
meniber Harriet Landry.

Materials for the project were
gathered from local forests.
Greenery from the monkey tree,
yaupon, red cedar, bayberry, and
pine cones were used in making
the live decorations. Heart's
Desire worked on bows while
Ard's Florist added inside decora-
tions., Jackie and Richard Hance
donated the use of their bucket
truck to hang the oversized
wreath and garlands.

The result is a beautiful site.
The oversized American flag still
hangs with dignity as a central
focus. It is surrounded by beauti-
ful greenery, ribbons, and

inmates, discussed what we were
planning, and have 10 volunteers
who agreed to stay in the tent," he
added.
While Monday night was a
first for Gulf County, some other
area counties have regularly used
tents when needed at their jail
facilities. "There's nothing contro-
versial. about what we're doing-
it's just a logical solution to our
short term problem," McKeithen
said.
Construction is expected to
take about another three to four
weeks inside the portion of the jail
being renovated. It will likely be'a
long time before teits will have to
be used again at the site once the
work is completed, because room
will be' made for another 32
inmates when work is finished.
The open "bay" area under
renovation formerly held. 28
inmates; when construction
workers are finished, this area
can house 60 inmates. The other
portion of the facility holds 30
inmates, so maximum occupancy
will be expanded from 60 inmates
to 90.
The 900 square foot'new
addition will house new showers,,
restrooms, and a day room area.'
Sheriff McKeithen said the
construction project had created
some legitimate problems with
crowding and plumbing issues.
Those matters have been dealt
with except for complaints about
construction noise. McKeithen
said 'the work is done during the.
work day and, in his opinion, that
is not a problem, except for
maybe disturbing, inmates who
might be trying to sleep during
the daytime.


Fisher Construction Com-
pany is doing the construction
work at the jail after being the
successful low bidder at
$254,000. The total cost is antici-
pated to come in at approximate-
ly $300,000 after equipment pur-
chases, engineering, design and a
few change orders ai-e factored in
to the cost.
McKeithen said Monday
night's stayover went very well
and he feels very comfortable that
this is a good solution to the short
term problem. He also expressed
appreciation to county commis-
sioners and work crews for help-
ing pull this together in very short
fashion.

Dear Editor: ""
I'm writing to your readers to realize some good -
fortune to which they have unknowingly been priv- .
jleged. It.has been duly noted that September 11th
changed all lives in America. I want to tell you
about a patriot that lives in my home.
I have known this well mannered, polite, witty,
intelligent individual for a little over 18 years. He
has managed to positively touch each life he has
contacted. He is extremely handsome and well groomed. His smile is
warm and kind. He loves to fish like his father, grandfather and brother.
This love of fishing sent him in the direction of intended study of Marine
Biology at the University of Florida. Upon high school graduation, plans
were made for Sea School and a Captain's license. Ultimately to guide
fish and help protect our beautiful bays and estuaries. A very obtainable
goal for a better than average student and Beta Club President at
Apalachicola High School.
Then September 11th ..... I notice something tugging on him for the
days and weeks to follow. He told me he had recently taken a test called
the "ASVAB" (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery). He also told
me he scored very well on this test. I wasn't sure what this test had to
do with guide fishing, protecting bays, and supplying me with room and
board at all Gator home games during his education in Marine Biology
at Ihe University of Florida. He was quick to let me know that he had
another calling. He wants to fly helicopters in the U.S. Army. His deci-
sion handed me a mixed emotion like none I have known.
01 course I am proud. Of course I am afraid. Of course by now you have
figured this is my son. But my overwhelming emotion is to let your read-
ers know ho fortunate and blessed they are to have an individual like
my son, Aaron'Kyle Blevins, to be part of the forces that protect all that
we enjoy as Americans. If you see him between now and July 25, 2002,
0530, wish him Godspeed with his basic training at Ft. Benning. Wish
him luck in his training as an air traffic controller at Ft. Rucker. And if he
is fortunate enough to be a pilot someday, I know he will fly straight and
true for our town, our county, our state, and our country.
Good luck son, Dad


- kS T -


fishing you peace and


happiness throughout

This holiday season.

boardwalks," Hendry stated,
stressing how development plans
would call for all construction to
take place behind (landward side)
of the boardwalk. This would
leave the existing 400 to 500 feet
of beachfront along the 3.4 mile
stretch as it currently exists in its
natural pristine beauty and open
for the, public to enjoy.
A total of 1,500 "low density"
lots would be marketed and road-
ways within the development
would be public roads. Public

the area would also be included.
as part of the development.
Parking, dune walkovers, rest-
rooms, public areas, piers, and
the boardwalk would all be open
for and free for public use.
Economic Benefits
Hendry went on to point out
some of the economic benefits
that the development would
bring. At the top of the list was4
2,900 jobs generating over $94
million over the projected 20 year
life of the development project.
Other $9.7 million in annual
tax revenues for Gulf County,
over $1 million in tourist develop-
ment taxes (five times the current
amount), $1.9 million'in sales--
taxes, approximately $50 million
in state and local funds and fees
generated, and an estimated 140/%
increase in gross revenues in the
community.
John Pollard, PBS&J Consul-
tants, outlined for those present
how the recommended realign-
ment route had been determined
through the study conducted. A
total of four road alignment alter-
natives were studied and align-
ment #4 was the plan that ranked
best when all of the einvironmen-
tal and physical data was collect-
ed and evaluated.
Public Comments
The bulk of the meeting was
given to the public for comments.
For the most part, those com-
ments were given in the form of
statements from. various speak-
ers, but: several did take the
opportunity to. ask Smallwood
and Pollard questions about the
project and roadway.
The meeting was scheduled to
last until 8:30 p.m., but everyone
whowanted to speak was allowed
their turn at the podium which
extended the timeframe.
Some of those comments :
Greg Johnson-favored the
realignment saying the quality of
the development, beach access
and "Back Beach Road' phases
Were major-reasons. He also
asked Smallwood what the num-
ber one concern of companhvy ff -
cials recently negotiating to locate
in the 'area was, Smallwood
responded, "transportation was
clearly one of the issues." :
Jeannette Palmer- "I would
like to see it stay like it is, but
that's not going to happen." She
went on to offer her support, say-
ing the development plans were
"unique" and "top notch." She
loved the idea of the boardwalk ;.
"I believe you have the interests
of the community at stake, as well
Sas the corporation's," she added,
S James Oakley- It seems like
the attitude of.the community has
changed since we had a meeting
here approximate-
ly a year or two .
ago," Oakley said.
He spoke out in
opposition of the
realignment plan,
noting the past
actions of the
company and traf-
fic congestion. "In
the long run, if
you want, to make us a 'back
beach road;' we would certainly
appreciate it, but we want to keep -
our road the way we have it now,"
he stated.
David Langston-stressed
the common sense approach to
the issue; "Everything will and


must change; noth- ,. ,
ing remains the '
same," he stated. .
"We must remember .
the children," he
added, speaking
about jobs and -
opportunities that
would be available
to them.
David Taunton-emphasized
some of the same sentiments
favoring the development plans as.
an opportunity for his children to
live and work in the community
they love.
Port St. Joe Mayor Frank
Pate-said the plan looked great,
m and the only way it
could be better
would be if we could
leave it as it is .
S"But that's impossi-
ble," he added. Pate
Sent on to, support
the project based on
L -. the number of new .
jobs created, tax
revenues, and the plan has lesser
impact on the beach area. He also
said company commitments need
to be in writing and contractual-
"Not that I don't trust them," he
jokingly said.
Sally Malone-said she was
one of the first people to sign up
and 22 had spoken John
Pollard asked Mrs. Malone to go
ahead and speak. He explained
that names had riot been put In
any order, while expressing a
desire to defuse any hard feelings.
She said St. Joe Company
couldn't take the road "without
our permission." She suggested
the company deed the property to
Gulf County. "Tell the St. Joe
Company to do what they want
with their property and leave our
public property alone," Malone
said.
Garry Ross-spoke in sup-
port of the plan, but, as a member
of the Port Authority, stressed the
need to have better road access to
the area if the port is going to sur-
vive.
Allen Cox-said he didn't
want to see Gulf County turn into
another Destiri. He stated that
only a few years ago: there were
5,800 jobs in Gulf County and
now there are 4,700; He also
noted that taxable sales in Gulf
-have fallen $2 million over the last
year ... "It's time we come togeth-
er on this thing," Cox said.
George Core-"I support
every facet of what we have been
talking about the project," Core
stated. He rermnisced as to how
various areas in the county used
to be wide open for public use,
then outlined just how few access
areas were still open. "This pro-
ject is for our grandchildren and
great-grandchildren in the
future," Core said.
S Al Scheffer-spoke out
against the road,.
citing traffic 'at St. ".
Joe Beach, Mexico
Beach,-.and Beacon
Hill as a problem. 1'-
He stated that If
constructionn start-
ed at Highway 386, ..
then we'll

State Representative Bev
.Kilmer-She was reminded of
three years,.ago when she- met
with hundreds :of unemployed
workers in a time of crisis in the
very same school building. She
talked about the beauty and char-
acter of the area,

management would require the
company to do just exactly that.
"You've got an opportunity 'to
work with a company that's going
to work with and blend with this
community," she said. -
Steve Norris-spoke about
the rush by city and county com-
missioners to find jobs "Well,
here it is," he proclaimed. He went
on to compare this project with a
Decision made several years ago
to bring the prison to Gulf
County. "So many were against it
(the prison) then-now they're our
number one employer, and we'd
be in a mess without them, he
said. He went on to challenge
both city and county commission-
ers to pass a "resolution" not a
"referendum" "I challenge you
to get'thosejobs,"'he added.
This is just a sampling of
some of the numerous comments
that were made during the public
meeting.


During interviews Tuesday
morning with both Smallwood
and Hendry, both acknowledged
that the company would record all
promises in a legally binding
manner. In fact, that had always
been part of the process and
would be required during a state
required DRI Study period.

During that study, the public
will once again be asked to be
involved in the planning'and deci-
sion-making process. Both
acknowledged that many of the
plans, and changes to plans, that
have bqen developed to-date were
the result of public meetings held
two years ago, and those opportu-
nities will continue.

The next step in the study
process will be a uiitten report of
the study ard proposal given to
the Florida Department of
.Transportation.


Several people check out the conceptual drawings of the project.

The holiday season is upon
us, although the uncharacteristi-
cally warm weather would suggest
otherwise While the thermome-
ter's rising mercury does not
exactly proclaim, "Happy Holi-
days", students and faculty at Port
St. Joe High School are adopting
the seasonal spirit nonetheless.
Clubs are busy collecting gifts for
the underprivileged, distributing
"holiday-grams", crafting tokens of
appreciation for the teachers, and
organizing sing-along caroling for
cafe ena entertainment.
Students are becoming rest-
less as they anticipate the upcom-
ing holiday break. This year,. win-
ter break will extend from
December 24 to January 7.
Unfortunately, the pleasant
thoughts of vacation are tempered
with the slightly less pleasant
thoughts of-drum roll, please-
EXAMS! Students will endure
their first dose of final exams
today, December 20, and will com-
plete the semester with exams in
their second- and fourth block
class tomorrow. Friday, December
21, students will be dismissed at
noon. '
When students return after
the holidays, they will be enrolled
in four entirely new classes for the
second semester, as a result of
block scheduling. Block schedul-
ing has caused some controversy.
within the school system lately.
Anyone who is interested in. the
topic is in\iied to attend the school
board meeting this evening,
Thursday, December 20, at 6:30
p.m.
We ,may not be attending

Faith Christian School


Christmas is truly a time of
anticipation as we experience
anew the coming of the Christ
child, the coming of family and
friends, and the. excitement of the
season with all the pageants, can-
tatas, special meals, and finding
the right gift for each person. The
third through fifth graders helped
to turn our hearts and minds

toward the reason for all of this
celebration in the presentation of
their Christmas play on Tuesday
and Wednesday at the First
Church of the Nazarene. Those
participating in the play were
Cody Grantham, Jeremy Harcus,
Jordan Heath, Brian Pitts, Sean
Pridgeon, Rakeem Quinn, Nate
Taylor, David Keith, Dillin
McGhee, Rachel Thayer, and
Karla Wiley. The play was directed
by Mrs. Carla McGhee and Mrs.
Kathie Sarmiento, who also par-
ticipated in the play. We greatly


appreciate the First Church ol tihe
Nazarene for allowing ,us, to use
their facility for both presenta-
tions.
Miss Carla's third graders
wrote about the true meaning of
Christmas..We would like to share
with you some of their thoughts.
The true meaning of
Christmas is to celebrate Jesus'
birthday. I love Christmas be-
cause you get to give presents and
get them, and it's a day when you
and God get closer. Hale you ever
noticed that you never get hurt on..
Christmas?-Jordan Heath
The true meaning iof Chnst-
mas is Jesus who was born on
Christmas day and Jesus was
born in a manger.-Brian Pitts

SMy true meaning is that I
believe in my God. His birthday is
on Christmas and we celebrate'
Christmas and heaven on earth in,
our heart on this day and we will


be glad to go to heaven to worship
Him. Love God.-Rakeem Quinn
The true meaning of Christ-
mas is about Jesus' brthl He was
born in Bethlehem. When Mary
and Joseph got there they could-
n't find any place to stay. So they
had to stay in a stable. An angel of
the Lord told the shepherds and
wise men about Jesus. Actually


the wise men saw the star. And
Jesus was born on Christmas
Day!-Nate Taylor
We will dismiss at 12:00
tomorrow for the holidays. The
students' first day back after the
new year will be on Tuesday,
January 8. Faith Christian School
would like to extendto all of you a
blessed Christmas season.
