Block Scheduling Supported



PSJHS Students, Parents, Teachers Want Block Scheduling To Stay


A special Gulf County School
Board meeting held last Thursday
evening to discuss "block sched-
uling" at Gulfs senior high
schools drew a packed house of
mostly Port St. Joe High School
students, their parents, and
teachers.
Based on the pointed com-
ments made by the vast majority
of speakers, during the public
comment time, they feared a deci-
sion had been made to alleviate
block scheduling and felt it would
not be the right thing to do. Pleas
were sounded time and time
again to leave the scheduling svs-
tem in place.
Those speaking in favor of
block scheduling argued that the
longer class penods give more
time. to study; more class time
and interaction time \rith teach-
ers; less burn-out, because the.
course only lasts one semester;
more course credits can be taken
during the school year-eight

$1.5 Million Road Bids



Set To BeginIn 2002


County Road 5 Will Also Be Placed On Bid List


Gulf County commissioners
opened" bids 'for -what is to be
another major road paving bond
issue in Gulf County.
C. W. Roberts Contracting.
Inc. was the lowest of three bid-
ders vying for the contract. The
firm's bid of $1.473 million came
in under the next lowest bidder.
Grapnger Asphalt, which bid
91.559 'million. Anderson
Columbia Company. Inc. was the
highest bidder at Sl1.739 million.
Several major road paving
projects are planned for the
paving program including1 one


that is not included" iii the bid
amounts in which- grant funds
have been applied for and
received to help surface Road 5.
Road 5; is a clay road that
runs from Highway 22 to Stone
Mill Creek and Gulf Correctional
Institution. The board has been
seeking for several years to pave
the road since it is used as a
major access road to the prison
for employees traveling from the
Panama City area.
G.CI. is by:far the- single
largest employer in Gulf County
with over .680 employees working


at the site. The paved road would
provide a major -convenience' for
employees going to and from the
prison.
Commissioners tabled the
bids so that each proposal can be
reviewed and evaluated to be sure
all' the bid specifications have
been.met through the proposals.
Advertising Subdivision
Ordinance
Commissioners .agreed. .to
advertise for several revisions to
the' current Gulf County
Subdivision Ordinance.
Gulfs Subdivision Review
Committee has met and is making
the proposed changes after meet-
ing with county planning officials.
Chief Administrator Don
-Butler outlined the major changes
to board members during last
Friday's special 'meeting. .,He
explained that developers would
be allowed up to 50 months to
complete infrastructure plans
rather than the current 24-month
period. This provision would allow
developers to have more time to
.sell lots thus generate revenue to
help-finance subdivision develop-
ments.
, .Another addition is specialty
subdivisions. These .areas would
be exempt from some of the
strictest road paving require-
ments. Specialty subdivisions can
have a maximum of 30 lots, but
must also have a minimum of 30
acres. Property developers would
be required to make binding pro-
visions for maintenance of the
roadways and signage on roadway
would have to be posted stating
"private road" and "not publicly
maintained."
Commissioners voted 4-1 to
advertise the subdivision ordi-
nance with Commissioner Nathan
Peters, Jr. opposing. The dates for
the -reading and public hearing

SArea citizens joined together
to make the second annual
"Christmas For Kids" program an
overwhelmingsuccess. Last year's
program served i 10 children and
saw $3.600 raised in contribu-
tions and gits. .Anticipating a
greater need this year. the goal
was set: at $5,000 minimum to
reach an estimated 170 local chil-
dren and young people who might
not otherwise have the
opportunity to open gifts on
Chnstmas morning.
That goal and. the number of
kids reached grew by an unbeliev-
able amount for this Christmas
season. The number of kids
reached grew by over 100% from
110 last year to 221 and contn-
butions grew three-fold from
$3,600 to approximately $11,000
in donations and toys (toy value
was estimated).
Several of Santa's elves (dis-
guised as members of the St.


Joseph's Catholic Church Youth'
Department) spent ,Wednesday
evening. December 16th, packing
and organizing thousands of toys
in separate bags for distribution
.on Thursday.
Throughout the. day Thurs-
day, toys were given out at the
Catholic church hall and several
others delivered through all areas
of Gulf County. Jim and 'Sue
Newton and Bunny Miller oversaw
most of the packing 'and distribu-
tion.
"Two lucky children received
mountain bikes: that were giveh"
Jim said, as he recalled some of
the thousands of dollars worth of
toys that weie donated.
Sponsors used the thousands
of dollars donated and went on
several shopping sprees. Local
merchants pitched in by helping
with the shopping and offering
sizable discounts for "Christmas


For Kids" purchases.

, EEDITORIAL COMMENTARY W-f-' K-- by Kesley Colbert
COLUMN


Hold On to Your Hat


This New Millennium

I'm still having problems remembering how to spell that
word millennium, but we really are fixing to enter into the sec-
ond year.
Think about it. The first century didn't start out as "0"
Century. ... no .. no .... no. .. it was the.first century
and the #1 year. Likewise, we are about to start the #2 year
(2002) and it gives every indication of being an eventful one.
I'm going to go on public record with a little confession to all
you fine folks who take a few moments of your precious time to
read this blurb. A few yearsago, ol' Billy Dixson stood amongst
a huge crowd and proclaimed aloud that God had spoken to
him and said quite a large number of new jobs would be com-
ing to the area real soon. 2,000, if my memory is correct.
Okay Billy, I confess, underneath my breath, where you
couldn't hear it, I murmured, "I don't know if I'd told that
brother."
Economic rediscovery is a very long process. This is a les-
son many other communities have had to discover long before
we ever thought economic development was a term we had to:
be familiar with.
For all those folks who pen this area as, the "Forgotten
Coast," let me tell you, ain't nobody ever been here and forgot-
ten it. Florida's unforgettable coast is found and over the next
few years we'll see just how much economic impact this dis-
covery is going to have on us. Billy's figure is probably a whole
bunch conservative, but like most people, I was hoping that
we'd see jobs in a matter of days and months, not years.
Economic development usually doesn't work that way.
Thank the good Lord for all of those jobs that were brought
about with the expansion of Gulf Correctional. Institute. Now, it
does appear that a lot of the economic indicators are in place:
for Billy's prediction to start materializing before our very eyes.
I'm not real big on this predicting stuff, but I do believe.
2002 will be one of our community's brightest years yet.
.With all of that :i mind, we need to talk a little bit about
New Year's resolutions. This is the last paper of 2001 and we
will be starting a new year, with next Thursday's edition.
As we see some of this new found economic development,
we are going to also see some changes in this area. Here we go
with that confession stuff again--I fear some of the changes
that growth and development are going to bring to us. In some
ways-I don't want to change or see. anything change inMithis
area.
I also believe fear is a naturally occurring emotion that chal-
lenges us to react or respond. In the case of.oour communities,
I fear as things change the communities will change to some-
thing other than the special places we've all grown to love. I
,believe many of you have the same fears. But, let us not forget
the thing that makes this area so special is its people more so
than any other single ingredient.
As we see development and growth occur, one of our biggest
challenges will be to remain the same special places that we are
now. We'll see our children and grandchildren have the oppor-
tunity to work and live in the area they were born and raised.
in, and that will be nice. But, we'll also see a lot of new faces
coming to this area to find that special. unforgettable place they
had visited or heard about.
If we don't agree on much of anything else during this new
year, 2002, I hope we'll all resolve, for now and forever, to con-
tinue to be the special people that have made this place so
unforgettable.
Happy New Year!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I want to
be one of the first to wish'you and
yours a happy new year, even
though it isn't quite the new year
yet. It'll be here before you know it.
Just turn around twice and blow
your nose and the new year will be
here!
A steady diet of bowl games is
staring youi in the face for the next
few days. It seems like ,the bowl
games continue to multiply each
and every year!
SBy this time next week, we'll
all be suffering from a bad case of
the strained eyes.
How was your Christmas?
Mine was A-OKI
Frenchie started her baking
last Wednesday and the first cake
she baked fell, big time! She tried
an apple cake with walnuts in it
and some white stuff poured over
it and we had to eat it with a
spoon.
Next she tried some mince
meat cookies and ruined them also


but they were eaten, tob!
She was just a-mixing, her bat-
ter-add a little and stir, stir, until
she had a pan-full of batter. Then
she realized she had put in a tea-
spoon of baking powder rather
than baking soda, so. she just
added the soda, too!
The cookies were a little puffy
but they tasted alright.

IT'S GETTING NEAR time for
the Winter Olympics to be on TV,
and already they are televising, the
preliminaries of ice skating.
How those judges can tell a 5.5
performance from a 5.7, I can't


see. But there they are. from eight
different countries, judging the'
performance and when they are all..
posted, they're very nearly alike.'
So were the performances.
I have noticed that nearly all
ice skaters-male and female-for,
,the most part, skate backwards!
.Why is that? '
They'll come flying down: the
ice rink-backward-and jump
into the air, whirling three or four.
times and that's a "flying camel"!
Where do they get the name
,"flying camel"? '
It no way resembles a -flying
camel. As a matter of fact, I have


never seen a camel fly! And to
attempt the maneie\vere while skat-
ing backwards-and not fall
down-deserves more than a mere
5.7 in my estimation!
But, some skaters don't even
Sget a 5.71 .
". They don't receive but a 5.5 or
a 5.6. Why I even saw one skater
fall on his butt after he did the "fly-
ing camel" and he got a lowly 5.41
I guess I just don't understand
the intricacies :of ice skating. I
understand roller skating, but not
sk&te boarding. Skate boarding is
just a quick way to kill yourself!
I was a roller skater in my
younger days. Back when I was an
adolescent, living in, Oklahoma, I
saved up 50 Post Bran Flakes box
tops and .sent off for my premium,
which was a pair of roller skates.
That took a long time .
:Everybody ate. Post Bran
Flakes-and only Post 'ran
Flakes-for breakfast, for months
until I had my 50 box tops. I knew


there was no money,to buy those
roller skates and I was determined
to have their. So, rather than'eat
biscuits, and cream gravy for
breakfast. I pushed Post Bran
Flakes until my four brothers
hated the taste of those bran
flakes.

I GOT MY SKATES after so
long a time, and set out on the day
they came in the mail to learn to
skate.
Now, in the small oil boom'
town we lived in on the edge of
"The Tulsa Pool," we had side-
walks all over all six blocks of
town. We didn't have running
water, nor paved streets, nor sani-
tary sewer; but, we had sidewalks!
I started at one end of town
and skated the entire distance of
sidewalks, learning to maneuver
on my new skates. I even delivered
a friend's paper route for 154, just
to get in the practice of skating.
And I only fell four times while


I was learning!
I was proud of those skates!:
The ice skaters I now see on
television, remind me of those days
I: spent roller: skating from one end
of town to the other.

I ICE SKATED, too.
When winter would come,
around New Year's Day; us boys
would go down in the field behind
the house to Lew Ferris' pond.
There we 'would see Who could get
a running start and slide all the
way across the pond on our shoes.
Momma didn't like that,
because she said sliding on the ice
wore out our shoes quicker!
Oh, and letme tell you, Lew
Ferris' pond wasn't but about 30
or 40 feet across at its widest point
and,about two feet deep. He used it
to water his mules while they were
plowing cotton. Us boys made good
use of the pond during the winter,
when it was frozen solid! :

questioned manipulation of data
and whether the reason behind
considering change was to save
money.


The conversations were not
totally one sided though. Dr. Bill
Truby, principal of Wewahitchka
High School, suggested that if the
same meeting were held in the
north end of the county, they.
might hear different voices.
[ Indeed, the sentiments con-
I. cerning block scheduling do seem
to be the very opposite at
Wewahitchka High School.
Ironically. it appears that the
same' arguments that were
repeated over and over again
favoring block scheduling out-
lined at the beginning.of this arti-
cle) were exactly the same reasons
used to opposed block schedul-
ing.
Truby cited two studies that
show negative impacts of block
scheduling. He also pointed out
that kids can suffer when they
transfer from other schools, can

Gulf County Superintendent
of Schools Jerry Kelley said of the
meeting,. "This is one of the best.
things that has happened in the,
school system in a long time .
This is about the kids and noth-
block scheduling started in 1997.
It was noted that several factors
have changed in the way testing is
conducted that make it difficult to
draw any conclusion or pattern
from these numbers.
The data shows we've got
some. good 'things and we have
some things we need to work on,

about the presence and input
given during the meeting.
Kelley went on to state that


are in awe as we see the generos-
ity of this community overflow

too long.
S, He recommended -that the
.board take the rest of this school
Year and all of next.year to look at
block scheduling, gather nand
evaluate data. and then make a
:determination, as to what course
of action should be taken.
While the data is inconclu-
sive. Dennis GePghagan ques-
tioned statistics presented during
a service club program talking,
about how Port St. Joe High
School ranked very high during a
recent, valuation. The school
ranked in the top 10 in math and
reading among the small school
districts in north Florda.
It was also pointed out dunng
the evening that the school's
math department had excelled in
state-wide testing.
Carol Cathey, head; of that
department., lioted the research of
.Dr. Bill Sanders. who advises the
.State of Florida on education mat-
ters. He states effective teachers .
.are the single most important
issue in student achievement.
i Ultimately, the board agreed
to hold a similar meeting in the
north end of Gulf County for the
convenience of Vewahitchka High
School students, teachers, and
parents to hear what they had to
say concerning the question. The
board also seemed agreeable to.
considering splitting the'county's-

Sthe system that works best for
them.
The school board will further
discuss setting a time for a meet-
ing in north Gulf County during
its January 15th meeting.

Established in 1991, Farm
Share Inc., a 501C (3) non profit
organization is dedicated to the
recovery, sorting, packing, and

aged and distributed millions of
pounds of fruits and vegetables.
They not only help needy peo-
ple, but also provide a valuable
service to farmers by assisting in
disposing of produce not mar-
ketable at the retail level. In addi-
tion, field productivity is
,increased, sales are potentially
increased as a result of product

Mentoring Program Receives Grant


Port St. Joe's Mold a Male and
,Female program received a grant
in the amount of $1,000 from the
Northwest Florida Improvement
Foundation. The foundation was
established by The St. Joe
Company and is funded by sales
in Arvida communities like
WindMark Beach in Gulf County.
Mold a Male and Female is a juve-
nile intervention program whose
mission is to provide guidance
and resources for at-risk children,
giving them the opportunity to
lead productive lives.

girls between the ages of 10 and
17 years. Currently, eleven youth
attend weekly and monthly pro-

events, an annual youth confer-
ence on community concerns, and
camping and other outings.
"We are grateful for these
funds as they will help us sustain

nity's support is for us to continue
our mission. We also have room
for more participants who are
willing to work toward changing
their behavior."
"Our work is important
because of the young people,"
says Chester. "We hope to achieve
our goals of helping our youth
learn to accept responsibilities, to
make logical decisions, to partic-
ipate in civic interaction, use
leisure time wisely, practice social
graces, and learn the value of
cooperative behavior."
Among the individuals who
are benefiting from the program is
Bennie, a ninth grader at.Port St.
Joe High School. Bennie says that
since he joined the program, "my
grades have increased a lot. Mr.
and Mrs. Gant are very encourag-
ing. They have helped me realize
that there's so much that I can,
achieve that I never thought pos-
sible. Last year I spent the sum-
mer at Florida A&M University, on
a computer program. I didn't
think I could go to a college pro-
gram like that. But, because of
the Gants I have learned that
there's a great deal more that I
can achieve with my life, and I
hope to work in computers when I
graduate from school."
"This program validates the
idea that each and every individ-
ual can make a positive contribu-

tion in the lives of others," said
Pamela Selton, director of the
Norhvest Florida Improvement
Foundation. "What the Gants and
their supporters: have .accom-
plished with the youth of their
community and with very little
outside funding is truly inspiring.
They deserve to be recognized and
I hope others in the community
will join us in expressing appreci-
ation and support for this worth-
while cause."
Mold-a-Male/Female is a
youth outreach ministry of Zion
Fair Missionary Baptist Church.
The program is non-profit and
non-sectarian, whose purpose is
to divert at-risk youth in North
Port St. Joe from delinquent
behavior through mentoring and
role modeling. To learn more

We Cannot Waste
Any More Time
Dear Editor:
I cannot believe that the
Senate Democrats are playing
partisan g-ames with our nation's
economy. At a time when our
nation truly needs an economic
boost, they go on television .and
ibrag about: obstructing the
President and the nation's busi-
ness.
I am angry that the Senate
Democrats are holding our econ-
omy hostage--waiting for,Santa to
deliver a solution. While I witness
the workers of this great nation
facing layoffs and downsizing, our
Senator- are sitting up in
Washington counting the days
until they go into recess.
S At a time when our nation is
pulling together like never before,
Senator -Daschle talks about
bipartisan negotiations, but he
has said that he wouldn't.even
bring a bill to the floor unless he
has 2/3 of the Senate Democrats
: supporting it.
We cannot 'waste any more
time. Our nation needs an eco-
nornc secunty package now.

Dear Sir:
Recently. while staying with

Florida still has a few public
hunting lands that are thick with
Osceola gobblers, and hunters
who want in on the drawing to
hunt on one of them next spring
need to get their applications in
by Feb. 4.
The Florida Fish, and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
will award permits to 396 hunters
who submit Special-Opportunity
Spring Turkey Hunt applications
before the deadline and get drawn
for one of the 37 hunts. These
hunts receive their "special" sta-
tus bec'iise they are held onlarge
areas of public land with a limited
number of hunters allowed.
Seven special-opportunity
sites are open for spring turkey
hunts. They include the Green
Swaimp West U nit. Fisheating
Creek : East, Fort Drum,
Homosassa; Dexter/Mary Farms
Unit of, the, Lake George WMA,
Lake Panasoffkee and Triple N
,Ranch wildlife management
areas.' Florida's special-opportu-
nity hunts, are open to anyone
who is willing to invest $5 in an
application. Once selected in a
random-drawing, sportsmen pay a
nominal fee ($50 to $1 75) for per-
mits. Some hunters'submit -multi-
ple applications per hunt to boost
their chances of getting drawn.
That's allowable, as long at they
attach the non-refundable $5 fee
for each hunter on each applica-
tion.
Applications to take part in
this years special-opporturity
spring turkey hunts are available
from 'FWC offices and on, the
internet at. www.floridaconserva-
tion.org (Follow the 'hunting'
link). Applications have to' be
delivered to the FWC's quotahunt
office by the U.S. Postal Service or
by a licensed delivery service.
Hand-delivered applications. will
be disqualified. For more informa-
tion about special-opportuni t
hunts, interested sportsmen can

ily required the services of the
Mexico Beach Emergency Medical
Service. Our 911. call was
answered politely and efficiently.
The unit came quickly and han-
dled the, situation, which included
a fairly\ complicated move from an
up~Pr1' '1ioor' "the 'aiibulance,
,with proficiency and patience.
They went, in several ways, well
beyond the call of normal duty.
Residents and visitors in the
beach area can feel secure should
they need help from the Mexico
Beach Emergency Medical
Service.
Yours, truly,

True, an adhesive can pro-
vide increased retention to ill-

never be employed regularly for
a long time. Properly fitted den-
tures do not slip or fall away
from the jaws while you're talk-
ing or eating. They are
designed to fit snugly.
However, since gums and
their supporting jawbone grad-
ually shrink as we grow older,
dentures need to be modified

To all small business. own-
wers- inr Gulf county: The Gulf
County Chamber of Commerce
-arid you-have the wonderful
opportunity for FREE engineering
assistance and space technology
for problems you might have in
your small business. And before
you scoff at the idea of "space
technology" to help you, think
about some of the following things
S this Space Alliance Technology
Outreach Program (SATOP) has
already done for small businesses
elsewhere. It has helped .compa-
nies with rotor failures, mildew
prevention, assembly techniques
and many other issues.
For example, Vero Beach's
'local. radio station WOSN-FM
:'needed help to protect its tower
site arid broadcast equipment
from lightning strikes, a problem
that could cause them to go off
the air, 'threaten public safety,
suffer damage and lose advertis-
ing revenue. Alliance partner The
Boeing Company designed a plan
for the radio station similar to the
plan used to' protect the space
shuttle while it sits on the launch
pad.
Ed Kozlowski, :a glass artist
with Budda Belly Glass Studio in
Pinellas Park, who sellshis work
at Disney World, called the SATOP
to help him find a way to keep
heat inside his furnace-an expen-
sive problem when 'not fixed.
Alliance partner The, Thurston
SCompany was asked to solve the
problem. Engineers used the
design and materials behind the
space shuttle's heat tiles to
develop a solution plan for
, .Kazlowski. The result:: over
$2,500 in reduced electric bills for
this small-business oTiner!
And it's FREE!!
S The program is designed to
speed the transfer of the U.S.
Space Program's technologies and
.: engineenng e\-pertise to the pn--
%vate sector. It provides up to 40
hours of free technical assistance'
to the business community. utiliz-
ing the vast technical resources of
the U.S. Space Program partici-
S pants and contractors. It essen-
tially makes available an
engineering department for small
business.
Alter a business submits a
one-page request through the
Chamber for technical assistance.
a SATOP team determines if com-'
mercial consultants or the Space
Alliance consortium of engineers


could better address the technical
problem. Issues that can be
solved commercially will be sent
back with suggestions for resolu-
tion.
When a request is accepted, a
SATOP project engineer will be
assigned and will act as the liai-
son between the company and the
Space Alliance engineers. Most
requests will 'be resolved within
90 days!
And the program's success
rate so far?
*More than 500 jobs created.
*More than 460 jobs saved.
*Four companies saved from
closure.
*More than 16 new products
developed.
*More than $47 million in
new sales revenue generated.
*More than $23 million in
capital investments.
Rep;, Bev Kilmer recom-
mended the Gulf County
Chamber for the grant of $1,000
to serve as a source to help mar-
ket the SATOP during 2001-2002.
Rep. Kilmer has also I een'instru-
mental in the Chamber being
awarded the grant in previous
years.
If your business could benefit
from this assistance, call the
Chamber at 227-1223.

Senate Passes

Graham-Hollings

Seaport Security Bill
A landmark bill that will bol-
ster security at America's deepwa-
ter ports has passed the Senate.
This bill has been a top pnonrty of
Senator Bob Graham of Flonda
for more that two years. Graham,
chairman of: the Senate Select
Committee on Intelligence. has
called seaports particularly vul-
nerable to terrorism and crime,-
including drug smuggling.
The bill authorizes more than
$1.1 billion over six years, includ-
ing grants to local port authori-.
ties, plus another $3.3 billion in
loan guarantees for local port
authorities to finance security
improvements. Part of the cost is
offset by an extension pf the exist-
ing tonnage tax on cargo.
This bill \will ensure that per-
sonnel and equipment are avail-
able to adequately screen cargo
moving through ports.


Rosasco Recognized by Board
Gulf County commissioners gave Peter L. Rosasco a plaque of
appreciation for his service to the county aid community on the
Planning Development and Review Board. Rosasco served on the
board from 1993 through June of this year, said Gulf County

:AVOIDING A BAD INVESTMENT IS

EASIER THAN YOU MIGHT THINK-


; By Carol Bell :
Human nature being what it fs, none of us can ger serious about the idea of buying a house
withoutt experiencing at least a few small twinges of worry What we fear, of course',;s making
a mistake And the mistake we tend to fear most is buying a 'lemon' a house that doesn't:
simply foil to satisfy our hopes but turns out to have so many flaws that it's a disastrously bad
investmentt
The good news is that the danger of getting stuck with a lemon of a house is one of the i
most easily avoided dangers in the whole universe of personal finance Prospective homebuy
ers are protected in many ways. and they can further strengthen their defenses by takirig a few
simple, cbmmonsensical precautionary steps CAROL
The first of your protections is the fact that in many places sellers ore required by la.v to make hBELL
'problems known to potential buyers and are liable under the law;f they fail to make adequate dis
:closure.
S For obvious reasons, however, most of ui prefer to steer clear of legal entanglements even when the law is on our side. In
the housing market we do.this by identifying problems before closing the deal. And identifying problems isn i necessorly all
that difficult. Even a person who's not an electrician or plumber or construction expert often can identify areas of potential con-
cern simply by being alert when visiting a house that's on the market
It s a simple matter, for example to turn on Faucets and showers to test water pressure. In a bathroom ii's a simple matter
to turn on the hot water.both at the sink and in the shower at the same time and then flush the toilet and wolch for drastic drops
in pressure or temperature. This is highly likely to produce evidence of whatever problems are lurking in the plumbing s, stem
Most homes should provide at least 200 amps of electrical power, and it's usually possible to confirm this'simply by check-
ing-the numbers on the circuit breaker panel. Check, too, for extra-heavy 220-volt outlets where they're needed for a washer,
dryer and other heavy appliances ard for the grounded three-prong outlets needed for computers and power tools.
A house that's been standing for years but still has straight walls and ceilings and remains free of cracks, and. the stains
that indicate leaks is likely to be structurally sound.
SAre the basement walls damp or even wet? Have termites left their calling cards tubes or tunnels where the walls touch'
the ground or '.ood debris around baseboards? ,
'Wherever you'see such things, things that you wonder about because you don't understand them or.wouldn't expect to find
them in a completely sound structure, you can be confident that it's time for further examination. Keep an open mind about what
that further examination might lead to, however. Things that can look like big trouble to the amateur eye sometimes turn out to
be quite trivial when an expert checks them out.
'The word "expert" is a crucially important one to remember. Ultimately, before closing on the house of your choice, you
should have it inspected by a professional'-- one who has solid credentials and a solid reputation and whose work is guaran-
teed. Your purchase should be coriflngent on the results of the inspection. Your realtor can help you make all this happen, there-
by reducing your risk to the vanishing point.

"Happy New Year!" I shouted
to a stranger.
"How can I have a happy new
year," he asked, "when I'm the
same old sad and sinful person I
was last year?"
Long ago the question was
asked, "Can the leopard take
away his spots? Nor can you who
are so used to doing evil now start
being good."
But you can start being good.
How? By believing on the Lord
and being born again.
In Him there's the solution to
every problem, faith for every
fear, forgiveness for every sin,
victory for every defeat, and joy
for sadness.
Give Him control of your life
and you'll have a new life for a
happy new year.

happened to the freedom we hold
so dear.
Our lives. were completely
shaken bythe acts of this terror-
istic .group, willing to sacrifice
their lives to tighten up their loop,
SAnd from the sky came our enemy
with devastation in mind, know-
ing they would not have to stand
trial on earth for their hideous
crime.
Our wakeup call came
Tuesday, September 11th, and it
came with a blast, to America this
was unbelievable, like nothing in
the past. There was no time to
retaliate, there was nothing we
could do, but quickly we came
together as our country became
united honouring our red, white
and blue.
This' is not the end of the
story, it only started with a blast,
and with God as our leader, the
future is already cast. It's time we
got on our knees and pray to God
on high, to guide us and lead us
from bur future home in the sky.
To give wisdom and courage
to our leaders in this fight,;
because we are fighting for our
loved ones and what we know is
right, God Bless America.
