Review of the Articles and Pictures That Made the News in 2001


There is no doubt about Gulf
County remains in a period of
transition, but what is incredible
is the amount of recovery we have
made from the loss of the paper
mill and nearly 600 jobs. Many of
the top stories of 2001 focus on
that recovery and the new direc-
tions economic .development is
taking our communities.
All of that being said. the top

"The Port's Back In Port St. Joe"
Yes, indeed, great strides have
been made over the past year to
reactivate the port.
Port Authority members have
been actively pursuing develop-
ment of a Port Master Plan and at
the same time some of those -key
ingredients have begun to fall into
place. At the top of that list was
the purchase of 26. acres of prop-
erty from the St. Joe Company.
This purchase includes the old

Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) approved con-.
sultants to do the testing work
and DEP has conducted split
tests on the same area simultane-
,.ously.
The old mill site has the
potential to make this year's #3
story (the port) an even bigger"
.story. Not only are.there several
large warehouses,at the site, but.
there are also docking facilities
along the entire length of the old
plant. The 125-acre site could
provide a major stimulus for the
port, assuming the Port Authority
is able to secure the site.

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY t 7C4t 4l/-W4^ WVU4 ICe4 by Kesley Colbert
COLUMN


WILLIE RAMEY, EDITOR Why Didn't I Just Go On A Diet?,


WindMark Is A Millennium

Kind Of Project Also
A few weeks ago, during the public meeting to discuss the realignment
of Highway 98 between, Dixie Belle Curve and St. Joe Beach, several out-
standing points and very interesting comments were made.
Steve Norris made a comment that I not only thought' made, an excellent
point, but also helps to underscore a vision of the kind of positive impact this
development can have on our community as he reminded people of the day
the prison came to Gulf County. I shared with Steve a few days afterwards
that my wife, Shirley, and I had exactly the same observation while talking
about the magnitude of this project.
Do you have any idea just how close we came to not having Gulf Cor-
rectional Institution (GCI) and the 680+ jobs its presence has brought to our
community. One vote!!!
That's right, by a three to two vote, Gulf commissioners gave the green
light to Gulfs #1 employer. I can remember clearly Commissioner Billy Tray-
lor explaining how he was getting "beat up" by his constituents, but there
was not a doubt in his mind this was the best thing for Gulf County, so he'
had to support, it. Traylor and Nathan Peters, Jr. were two of those three
votes; the other was former commissioner Don Parker;
Stop and think for just a minute where we would be without GCI and,
for that matter, where would we be if Governor Bush, Representative Kilmer,
and Senator Thomas (along with a lot of help from other friends) had not
opened up the GCI annex'a few years ago. Thanks, men, for the foresight,
vision, and guts to make this vote.
I've made no bones about it on this editorial page that I strongly believe
this WindMark development project will be as big or bigger than GCI.
You know it seems like it was just yesterday that I heard and saw moth-
ers, fathers, grandmothers, and grandfathers shedding tears of pain and sor-
row as their luds had to pack their bags and leave our community in search
.of work. This development opens doors of opportunity to not only' stop this
exodus, but see a finished product that gives us (the community) what we
want and developers what they desire also. It will swing the doors of oppor-
tunity wide open for eons to come, while preserving what makes this area so
special.
It's no wonder that St. Joe, Company CEO Peter Rummell also considers
this stretch of beachfront his favorite of all of St. Joe's lands.
Over the past few weeks, I:ve had opportunities to talk 'with the comrpa-
ny's quarterback, both as a reporter and in casual conversation.
"WindMark is absolutely the jewel in the crown for us," Rummell stated
as he talked about company plans for Gulf County. He didn't mince any
words about the company's responsibility to make money for shareholders,
but he equally aspires to see something happen that's good for Gulf County
and the environment.
Rummell talked about the company's pans to have a significant "long
term" commitment to Gulf County, and how WindMark is the beginning of
that relationship.
"We're at sort of a threshold point," he said.of the project.
Threshold-I thought that a rather good choice of words. We've had sev-
eral articles in The Star recently outlining St. Joe's plans and the mindset of
their folks: John Hendry. ol Ar -da. and Clay Smallwood. president of St. Joe
Timberland, have used very similar terms as they spoke about being good
neighbors, partners with the community, and working together as good cor-
porate citizens.
SIt'is good to know that this attitude extends all the way through and to
the top of the corporate office. Furthermore, it was refreshing to hear speak-
er after speaker during the public meeting voice their support for the realign-
ment project because they felt it best for the community, its citizens, and the
future of all concerned, including those children and grandchildren earlier
mentioned.
One of the major concerns issued was having. guarantees that the
promises made to the public would not change or be broken some day.
-Rummell andi also addressed this question. He verified that checks and
balances would be in place to guarantee those assurances. Much of that
process, in fact, will occur during the DRI study period. DRI (Development of
Regional Impact) is a study required by the state when developments of this
magnitude are being planned. This study required total planning and will
also include public hearing and input sessions. Everyone will be able to not
only see the commitment in writing, but have input and impact on the
process.
Traffic will also be planned and discussed as part of this study. The bot-
tom line-traffic concerns will have to be addressed, planned for, and,
resolved to the state's satisfaction before each phase of development expan-
sion can take place.
As.we kick off 2002. I believe the future is at the threshold for our com-
munity. We have the p\ivilege of being able to influence, contribute to, and.
benefit from a relationship with the'rew St. Joe Company that has the poten-
tial to be extremely bright for my grandchildren.

One New Year's I resoluted to
ride Rollin Trull's -big Harley. That
was probably one of my more c-lal-

Rollin was older, than us, but
we were all in the same grade. He
was too cool to do those freshman

He didn't hang. around with
any of us anyway. He mostly

There Was Nothin'Like Enjoying a Bowl Game at the "Blue T"


CHRISTMAS IS OFFICIALLY

year.
Actually, so is the New Year's
holiday. Here.it is already January
3rd, and I'm no more sure of what
I am about to write about than I
was this time last week-when it
was last year!
I was right pleased with.
Christmas this past year; all of my
kids were home and a right fair
smattering of my' grandchildren
and even most of my great grand-
children. They all came wrapped
around a big appetite and bearing
gifts.
After opening giftsand enjoy-
Sing anr adequate repast on Christ-
mas Eve, most of the children,
grandchildren, and great, grand-
children gathered around the din-
ing room table and,played some
word game one'of them received.
They must have been having a
high old time, because the game
went on-amid whooping and
laughing-until 10:30.


Even "Smudgie" received a
wrapped gift-a musical ball that
lighted up when it was bounced,
for her to retrieve.

IT TURNED OFF COLD just
in time for Christmas to seem like
Christmas. It wouldn't seem like
the holiday which has come to be
associated with 'sleigh bells ring-
ing and snow glistening" unless it
was nippy outside.
We had the grandson and his
'family down from near Detroit for
Christmas. We went over to his
parents' house for Christmas day
and there wastheir son, wearing a

HERE IT IS, THE third of the
month and my eyes-like
yours-are bloodshot from looking
at non-stop bowl games!
I don't know why, but there is


just some attraction about a bowl
game
SI remember, a few years back.
George Tapper used to have sever-
.al televisions set up in his "Blue T"'
retreat on the edge of St. Joseph
Bay golf course, for his friends to
gather and watch the bowl games
Sand enjoy' the. magnificent hours
d'oeurves
I, could never figure out
whether the' group of men gath,

George's "Blue T" had a circu-
lai sunken living room and.every-
body would gather around, sitting
on the step down, 'eating and
enjoying. All went well just as long
Sas the Gators were winning
It's been a long time since I,
-last enjoyed a bbwl. game at the
"Blue T"!

OF COURSE, MOST OF those
men -who gathered for the bowl


games at. the "Blue T" are- dead
now. But we'all enjoyed it while it
was going on. There were men
there like Roy Gibson (a diehard
Gator -fan), Ed Ramsey, Dr. Joe
Hendrix, Dr. Wayne Hendrix, J. C.
Belin, Leonard Belin, Harry Saun-
tders,' Lawrence Bisset, Wayne
Ashley, John Blount, Weltorin
Roche, John Robert Smith, Char-
lie Wall, and a host of others I
cannot recall at this time.
Of course, all of these guys
are, not dead and will remember
these good days with me.
Those bowl games were "spe- "
cial"! Somehow, they seemed to be
just a little bit bigger than life.
George's "Blue T" was located
on the golf course border near one
of the numerous lakes and ponds
on the course. We'd all sit in the
comfort of the warm house and
watch the ducks come and feed on
the pond. Lawrence Bisset would
tell tales of his duck hunting days,
using his trusty 12 gauge shotgun
with those magnificent "magnum"


shells he always ised while duck,
hunting. :

youngest son, Alford, came up to
me a few weeks ago and asked me,
"How would you like to have a wild
goose for your Christmas dinner?"
Of course, I was willing to try.-
anything, so I told him, "Go for itl" '
He was going to Texas one
weekend on a goose hunt and
assured me they would get.
around 30! :
He rounded up his son,
another grandson, and his friend
and took off on his goose hunt.
Well, guess what I had for Christ-
mas dinner?

Kesley From Page 2


Harleys is-that thing is much
heavier than it looks! It took me fif-
teen tries to kick start that hog!
And I wobbled across the Trull's
front yard wiping out two strings of
Christmas lights and the mailbox
as. I fought for' control!
I righted. myself in the
straight-a-way out by Ben
Everitt's, buzzed rather cautiously
around the town square, and
roared toward the Hayden place.
I knew I was in trouble when
that machine wouldn't slow down
when I' dropped off the Deep River
Cut leading down to Mary
Hadley's. I was trying to remember
if Skip said the gears were on the
left and the brake was on the right,
or was it the other way around,
when I hit the ice on. the .cattle
crossing at the front gate.
Let me tell you, a run-a-way
Harley had a mind of its own! I was
trying to get my feet back on the
pedals when I plowed through the
grape arbor, got sideways trying to
miss the Buick, overcorrected and
.hit the first step on that front
porch running, according to the
official police report, fifty-two miles
an hour.


Me and that big machine went
airborne! The Harley "knocked" on
the beautiful oak-door. I ricocheted
off the wall and skidded to 4a stop
underneath the swing. Mr. Hayden
ripped what was left of his door off
the hinges, surveyed the smoking
motorcycle, the crashed-in front
steps, and the: crumpled up body
laying under his swing, bones
pooching out of the skin and blood
spurting, over his neatly painted
porch and said, "It's that crazy
Colbert boy. I think he has killed
himself this time for sure!"
I was trying to raise up to see
if Mary Hadley was coming to my
rescue when my head hit the bot-
tom of the swing. Right before I
went unconscious I heard Mr.
Hayden say, "Mary, go to your
room! If you ever get-within nine
miles of this-' fellow, I'.l'' disown
you!".
I made'; e another resolution
while we were waiting for Dr.
Holmes. I was going to get plum
out of the New Year's' resoluting
game forever .. or I was gonna
start coming up with better plans.
Respectfully,
Kes

Third Graders Present Musical Review


On Thursday, December
20th, Port St. Joe Elementary stu-
dents and faculty were treated to
a production of "The Little ,Bell
That Could Not Ring", presented
by the third grade classes4 of Mrs.
Clements, Miss Askew,q Mrs.
Phillips, and Mrs. Willis.
The actors, narrator and
chorus were as impressive as a
Broadway production. Their eyes
and voices were filled with cheer
and delight as they told the story '
of a family of bells whose little bell
had lost her ring. Santa Claus
made his appearance and sang
"Christmas Is Love".
The third graders also per-
formed for the PTO monthly meet-
ing December 13th in the school


auditorium. Proud parents and
family members were impressed
with the talents of their children
and their classmates. Mention
was made of plains for a Drama
Club in their future.
The stage design, props and
costumes were skillfully built and
made by the talented team of,
Vicky and Larry Scheffer.
Christmas decorations adorned
fthe auditorium and created a
warm and cozy atmosphere fpr
the play. The entire musical was
under the direction of Mir. Jo
Clements, assisted by Miss Askew
as sound director. Mr:. Phillips
and Mrs. Willis were in charge of
behind the scenes coordination.
Ken Murphy handled -video
recording of the performance.


Third graders enjoy performing a musical for others.


The holiday musical was a,
smashing success. and one that
should have been attended by


everyone. Make plans now to
attend next year's performance,
which is guaranteed to be equally
as delightful.

had his day ruined by an acid
attack. I don't want to ruin your
day, but your teeth can be sub-
ject to acid attack as well. The
culprit here is sugar.
As soon as we take our first
bite of something sugary, the
bacteria in plaque begin to pro-
duce acids. This acid attack can
last as long as 20 minutes while
the saliva fights its way in to neu-
tralize it. While the acid is being

Opera?

produced, it starts to rob the
tooth of minerals. You now have
the start of a cavity.
Given some time, however,
the tooth can replace the lost
minerals (heal itself) by soaking
up phosphates and calcium from
other foods we eat and from the
fluoride in toothpaste. This usual-
ly takes several hours.
If, however, the tooth is again
bombarded by another acid
attack before it has a chance to
heal, the tooth loses ground and
eventually can only be "healed"
by the dentist filling the acid-cre-
ated cavity.
Why go through this? Stay
away from sugar in the first
place.

As American bomber and
fighter aircraft drop bombs on
Taliban and Al Qaeda forces in
Afghanistan, the son of a Wewa-
hitchka couple is playing a vital
role in dropping something differ-
ent to Afghani citizens-reflief from
the cold and hunger running ram-
pant through the population of
Sthe war-torn country.
S Air Force Staff Sgt. Randall C.
Ransburgh, son -of Russ and
Charlene Ransburgh of Wewa, is
stationed with the 37th Airlift
Squadron at Ramstein Air' Base,
Germany, supporting the hiiman-
itarian airlift effort to get cultur-
ally-sensitive daily rations to
starving Afghanis.
-"I unload thehumanitarian
rations from the crates they come
in, load them, ifito. the Tri-Wall
Aerial Delivery System boxes and
help load them onto the C-17
cargo aircraft that drop them into
Afghanistan,": said Ransburgh, a
Graduate of Wewa High School. "I
alsoserve as a loadmaster on the
C-130 Hercules aircraft here."
Since the airlift began
SOctober 7th, Air Force C-17 cargo
craft have made about 200 flights.
dropping more than 2 million
daily rations to help sustain
refugees from the fighting. Other

S kets; shelters and other supplies

Even though it's the C-17s
S and their aircrews. deployed from
Charleston Air Force Base, SC
performing the actual air drops, it
takes a team effort encompassing
thousands of military people at
Ramstein to make the airlift hap-
pen. 'The teamwork being dis-'
played here between the units and
S services is something to see," said
1Ransburgh. "We:re all dedicated to
doing whatever it takes to make
This mission a success.
S"It's an honor to be a part of
d the humanitarian airlift," he
added. "It proves we're compas-
sionate to those in need even
when we're pursuing justice."
While the operation to, help
L the people of Afghanistan has its
critics, Department of Defense
officials give kudos to the U.S.
* niilitarv people at Ramstein say-
:, ing their efforts are making a dif-
S ference in the refugees' lives.

But the successes haven't
come without challenges. "I think
we're all racing fatigue here," said
Ransburgh. "It's a non-stop oper-
ation to build enough bundles for
all of the missions that are flown.
SAnd the cold, wet weather ham-
pers our efforts since we work
outside all of the.time."
Great strides have been made
in the U.S.'s battle against terror-


ists and those who harbor them in
Afghanistan, but the effort to help
the non-combatants in the coun-
try through a rough winter are far
from over.
But through the continued
efforts of Ransburgh and the rest
of the minltary team at Ramstein,
maybe the bitter Afghan winter's
effects will be lessened for those
in need.

FROM
THE
SOWER
S hcihael A. Guido
Mener, Georgia

Every tomorrow has two
handles fear and faith.
The Psalmist took hold of'
tomorrow with the handle of
faith. He said, "In Thee,,0 Lord,
do I put my, trust."
He trusted in the Lord to guard
him. He said, "Be Thou my
strong rock, for an house of
defense to save me." Whom He
saves, He shelters.
He trusted inthe Lord to guide
him. He didn't know what was
before him; but he knew Who,
was. For he said, "Lead me."
He trusted in the Lord to gird
him. He said, "Thou art my
strength." And with His strength
comes success.
Fear and faith don't go
together. So take hold of the
tomorrows of the New Year with
the handle of faith, won't you?

broad spreading canopy. :Ask if
your choice requires special soil,
and if it is prone to serious insect .
and ,disease problems which will
require routine spraying. Be sure
the plants are tolerant of your
local weather conditions.
Inspect them closely, and
choose those that appear health,
without scarred or cracked trunks'
or branches. Don't purchase trees
with double leaders or with main
branches clustered together on
the. trunk, 'L eaves of abnormal
size or with excessive yellowing
are anindication olr a plant health
problem. Also, examine plants for
insects, diseases and mechanical
damage.
Next examine the root system.
The root system of a .container-
grown plant 'should be well-estab-
lished 'so that the root ball stays
intact when the container is
removed; however, the plant
should not be rootbound.. Root-
bound plants have a mass of roots
circling near the outside surface
of the .container medium and may.
present difficulty in establishment
in the landscape.
Equally as important as
selecting good plants is proper
planting procedure. This is the
same for vines, shrubs and trees:
dig the planting hole one foot
wider and as deep as the root ball
*is tall. In some cases where the
soil is hard or compacted, it may
be advisable t.odig a planting hole
three times wider than the con-
tainer and half as deep. Then
mound the soil to cover the sides
of the root ball.
A plant installed in this man-
ner might require more frequent
irrigation dunng dry penods. but
is not likely to suffer from subsur-
Sf acedrainage problemsL.
The: 'success or failure of
planting often depends on
whether the plants receive ade-
quate moisture. The construction
of a saucer-like basiniaround the
plant from the extra backfill soil
will aid watering by holding the
water until it drains down to the
plant's roots.

Financial Decisions


Affect Retirement


Andy Wilkinson
Financial Advisor
For many investors, retiring is
a very challenging financial tran-
sition. Not only are you faced with
a number of important lifestyle
decisions, such as,. where to live
and how to live-you're also likely
to be dealing with the most money
you've ever had to manage.
The thought of trying to best
manage employer retirement
plans, Individual Retirement
Accounts (IRAs), stock and
mutual fund investments, and
estate planning for a rewarding
retirement can be daunting. To'
avoid making costly mistakes
upon retirement, here are a few
suggestions to help with planning.
Take An Inventory
Before making any decisions,
it's important to take a step back
and assess your entire range of
assets,: including savings and
checking accounts, stocks, bonds,
mutual funds, IRAs, employer
retirement plans, Social Security,
and in some cases your residence.
For a complete picture, any out-
standing debt should also be tal-
lied and suibtracted from your.
asset total.
By calculating your net worth,
you'll be able to create realistic
financial objectives and a budget
that can,' help improve your
"retirement readiness'. This infor-
mation is also useful in evaluating
your asset allocation and plan-
ning an investment strategy that
will enhance your golden years.
Asset Allocation
Finding a comfortable balance
(or weighting); of stocks, bonds,
and cash for your portfolio during
retirement will help you meet you
financial needs while safeguard-
ing your savings from market
volatlity. ..
.oi: many .years, -experts
agreed that upon retirement all
assets should be shifted to low-
risk fixed income products such
as treasury bonds and certificates
of deposit (CDs). The guaranteed
regular income' of these, invest-
ments was often expected to cover
day-to-day expenses through a
short retirement. But thanks to
improvements in medicine and
technology, retirees are now living
longer: lives. Therefore, retired
investors who implement a fixed-
income-only strategy today may
be at serious risk of not being able
to combat inflation and maintain
their current standard or living.
To avoid financial hardship
during your golden years, you
should plan for a retirement of 20
to 30 years depending on age and

More than 78,000 Americans
are currently waiting for trans-.
plants of vital organs. Fifteen to
sixteen people die each day while
waiting. In Florida alone, more' .
than 2,500 are awaiting organ
transplants.

Call Helpline with

Medicare Questions
People who have Medicare:
can 'call a toll-free helpline for
answers to questions about qual-
ity'of health care. If they feel they
have been given poor medical care
or, are asked to leave the hospital
too soon, they can call Florida
Medical Quality Assurance" at
1/800- S44-0795 "
Helpline representatives are
standing by to- address quality
concerns about care received from
hospitals, ambulatory surgery
centers, skilled nursing facilities,
home health agencies, health
maintenance organizations ,or
HMOs, hospice agencies and
physician offices. If Medicare paid
for the services, patients have the
right to ask for a review.
Call 1-800/844-0795. to


speak with. a staff member 'in
English or Spanish. The Helpline
is answered 8 a.m. to '5 p.m. ET

health. Given this considerable
length of time, devoting a portion
of your assets to equities, a more
aggressive investment vehicle
than fixed income products, is
often recommended. A financial
advisor can help you develop a
plan that is tailored according to
your own objectives, age, health,
.and assets.

Employer Retirement
Plans/IRAs
Just as each employer retire-
ment plan has its own rules for
participation-rules for distribu-
tion also vary. In. most cases, a
retiree can elect to receive a lump
sum payout, rollover the amount
into a traditional IRA,i or elect to
receive the money via periodic
payments over a specified period
of time.
There are several important
factors to consider before deciding
which distribution option is most
Advantageous. Variables such as
age, health, other savings, and
current tax situation should be
carefully evaluated before making
this decision. You should also.
take a close look at the money you
would receive from each option
before making this choice.
Another important decision
facing retirees is what to do with
assets in an IRA. If you are
between the ages of 59-1/2 and
70-1/2 you can withdraw as.
much or as little from your tradi-
tional IRA without penalty. The;
withdrawal will be subject to ordi-
nary come tax and the amount
remaining in your IRA will con-
tinue to grow tax deferred.


By April 1 following the year
in which you reach age 70-1/2,
you must begin to take a mini-
mum required distribution that is
based oh your life expectancy. If
you fail to begin taking this distri-
bution, a penalty of 50% on .the
amount you should have taken is
assessed.
Unlike a traditional IRA, the
Roth IRA does not require a mini-


mum distribution at age 70-1/2.
Estate Planning
If you don't already have a
well-conceived estate plan at
retirement it's not too late. An
estate plan is essential to ensur-
ing your wealth is passed along
exactly as you intend-and with
minimal delay and erosion by fed-
eral and state taxes.
Because estate taxes can con-


sume a significant portion of an
inheritance, it's a good idea to
work closely with a financial advi-
sor when crafting an estate plan.
Depending on your assets and tax
situation, there are a number of
different strategies that can be
implemented to reduce taxes
including gifts and trusts.
This overview, highlights just
some of the major financial deci-
sions that must be faced upon


retirement. To learn more about
managing your assets for a
rewarding retirement contact your
financial advisor.
