Gulf County School Board
membei- Oscar Redd visited the
Wewahitchka City Commission
meeting Monday evening updat-
ing them on the status of efforts
to retain the NJROTC program at
Wewahitchka High School.
SCity commissioners had writ-
teri a letter of support to the
school board for the program and
,they agreed to carry that process
one step further and contact our
congressman and senator seeking
their assistance to help continue
NJROTC at the school.
School board members,

Wars members, parents. NJROTC
students and interested '-itizens
have petiuoned for the program to
continue. The Navy had informed
the school board that the -atelbte
program at th'e school would be
phased out in June 2001 (last
year). After greatiffort that pro-
gram was extended for one year
(until June 2002) and efforts are
now underway to get a permanent

and an old fish hatchery site.
"It's a beautiful piece of prop-

cussed the 'potential for use by
county residents. The completion
of the most pressing part of that
need is already coming together.
Butler said the board has received
unofficial notification that nearly
$90,000 in grant money should
be in place to help remove silt
from the boat channel leading to
the Dead Lakes. The grant would.
be the catalyst that makes the'
launching site usable year-round.
Some discussions have led
toward investigating the possibili-
'ty of reactivating the old fish

then be used to restock area

The Port St. Joe Kiwanis Club
recently honored Al Ray for his
many years of service to the local
club and community. Mr. Ray
,recently stepped down as the
Kiwanis Club's Secretary/
Treasurer after serving in this
capacity for over twenty years. In

In 2001, the Kiwanis Club of
Port St. Joe raised close to $8,000
from individual, corporate and
other sources, all of which was
put back into the community.
The club's longevity and
growth is due to a membership
that donates many hours of their
time to run Kiwanis's programs
and fundraisers. This volunteer
ethic, combined with local
fundraising, has enabled Kiwanis
to serve the Port St. Joe commu-
nity for over-50 years. For more

Know If We'll Have
"A Cold Winter"
It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation
asked their new chief if the winter was going to be cold or
mild. Since he was an Indian chief in a modern society, he had
never been taught the old secrets, and when he looked at the
. sky, he couldn't tell what the weather was: going to be.
Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he replied to his tribe
that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the mem-
bers of the village should collect wood to be prepared.
But also being a practical leader, after several days he got
an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National
Weather Service and asked, "Is the coming winter going to be
"It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold-indeed,"
the meteorologist at the weather service responded. So the
chief went back to. his people and told them to collect even'
more wood in order to be prepared.
A week later, he called the National Weather Service again.
"Is it going to be a very cold winter?"
"Yes'," the man at National Weather Service again replied,'
"it's definitely going to be a very cold winterr"
The chief again went back to his people and ordered them
to collect every scrap of wood they could find.
Two. weeks later, he called the National Weather Service
again. "Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be
"Absolutely." the man replied. "It's going to be one of the
coldest winters ever."
"How can you be so sure?" the chief asked. The weather-
man replied, "The Indians are collecting wood like crazy."

The -moral to this story can be applied in many ways .
" He i'ho places his trust in the great cbief needs to make.,sure
his chief is not really just another Indian-or buy'-a--new'
While I'm sharing pearls of wisdom with you, I saw ol'
buddy "Chief Tellum Long Story." just call me Robert Miller,
the other day. Chief Miller was sharing his whims of wisdom
with Gulf Count\' Sheriff "Chief Caryr Big Stick" (Frank) Mc-
Keithen and they gave me the opportunity to pow-wow with
'em a little while.
I told Chief Miller I had not seen him in a while, but I did
remember some of the deep thoughts he empowered me with
during our last talk "If you don't need it and it's free, get
'ttwo," and, of course. "Be good to those on \your way up the
ladder of success, because you'll probably meet them on the
way back down."
It was easy to tell by the look on his face that Chief Miller
had been spending much time in the tribal circle with the
other chiefs and elders, and more knowledge had been impart-
ed to him.l waited with anticipation as his lips began to
motion yet another profound statement "Almost never did."

going to say? It seenied like a good-
idea when David Paschal told me
about this team over in Paris that

day off of work and hitchhiked the

approached the big guy picking up

My love for the game over came
my thumping heart.

the league in home runs where I

ball? His eyes didn't stop piercing.
but his face softened and I swear I
thought I saw a hint of a smile.
"Yes sir. Mr. King."
"Well, you'll get a chance
here." He motioned to the line of
players behind the batting cage
waiting their turn and I moved off'
in that direction. What kind of
coach is he? He didn't even ask if
I could hit or throw He has prob-.
ably already made up his mind!

Battles Street, Gumdrop and Trash
Take Front Stage at P.S.J. Meeting
Port St. Joe city commission-
ers got some good news concern-
ing their stormwater mitigation
project, being financed by FEMA,
to improve continual flooding
problems along Battles Street in
North Port St. Joe.
: For years, the city has dealt
with flooding issues with the
occurrence of every, storm event
and periods of heavy rainfall.
FEMA has answered the call for
help, but bids to fix the problem
came in 'at over twice the
$152,000 allotted for repair.'
FEMA representative Miles
Anderson visited the board meet-
ing Tuesday and agreed to try and
locate enough money to fund the
project, and the city agreed to try
and change order the $318,000
low bid to a better price. Preble-
Rish, Inc. engineer Bill Kennedy
said he felt the price could be
reduced, considerably with the
city doing some in-kind work and
utilizing some sections of surplus
pipe stored at the community's
wastewater treatment plant.
Commissioners hope to have
these details worked out before
the board's next meeting so they
can award the bid and get started
on. the. project.
Kennedy noted during inter-
view that the re-work would take
three to four months and would
entail major renovations includ-
ing removing streets, utilities,
some trees,, and even fences and
Looking At Tax Abatement
Mike Fitzgerald, representing
Gumdrop Books, was present
during the board's meeting and
commissioners discussed giving
tax abatement, incentives for the
company which is relocating in
S Mayor Frank Pate noted that
the board had to' advertise the:
abatement proposal 'and would
likely address the-question during
its next meeting on February 5th.,
He.also responded to a request to
consider granting further incen-
tives by reducing or exempting
fees for water/sewer hook-ups on
homesite constructions. Pate said
he didn't feel the board could go
that far, but the board and city
will be willing to help in any way
that they' could.
Fitzgerald said the company
hoped to be shipping books out of
Gulf County by the fall of this
In Trash Pick-Up
Beginning on February 4th,
there will be some changes in the
way trash and household garbage
is picked up in the city.
Public Works Superintendent
Terry McDaniel asked the board
to make several changes to the
process and the board agreed.
All trash and household
garbage will be picked up in front
of city residences. There will be no
pick-up in any of the city's alley-'
ways except for Bird Alley (runs
from 16th Street to Methodist
Church between Highway 98 and
McDaniel noted that these
changes were necessary in order
to reduce the time it currently
takes to pick up garbage and.
trash. Because people are. placing
Items both in front of and behind
homes, public works crews are
having do double work to cover
The board also discussed
problems with separating road-
side trash. The landfill will not
accept mixed ti-ash with house-
hold .garbage, metal, and other
things. The board discussed leav-
ing the garbage in front of resi-
dents' homes where it is not sep-
,arated, or fining property owners
who db not properly separate
In Other Business

$79,285.00 for a new fire truck.

NFIF Expands to Franklin County
Sales at Arvida's SummerCamp to Benefit Communities
The Northwest Florida
Improvement Foundation (NFIF)
has expanded. its reach to include
Franklin County inp ,addition to
Gulf, Bay and Walton counties
currently served. Under this addi-
tion,. real estate sales at Arvida's
proposed coastal community,
SummerCamp (near Carrabelle),
would generate contributions to
NFIF funding in Franklin County'.
The NFIF, axi independent,
i not-for-profit organization estab-
lished by The St. Joe Company in
1999, is funded by sales in Arvida
"A community, is about its
people," said Chris Corr, NFIF
board member and vice president
of public affairs at St. Joe. "We
will be successful only when the
community is successful. The
Foundation's mission is to sup-
, port initiatives that enhance the
quality of life of the communities
we serve, in which Franklin
County is a very important part.
In short, the Foundation grows'as
,Northwest Florida grows."
The NFIF su sports variety of
regional and community projects,
designed to benefit communities
through investments in civic
infrastructure, community facili-
ties and initiatives that funala-
.mentally improve the quality of
life, as well as foster pride and
appreciation of cultural traditions
of each of these .communities.:
The .Foundation is dedicated
to improving the quality.of life for
the people of Northwest Florida
through programs that improve
education, health, parks and
recreation, art and culture, and
community spirit. Each year, the
Foundation's board priorities its
investment options,. allocating 'a
certain percentage of the available
funds among the various cate-
gories in each of the participating
counties. It considers the grants
as investments, not as charity or
obligations, and look for compre-
hensive investments that pay
long-term returns on the quality
of life within the region.
The Foundation is especially
responsive to programs where
foundation efforts can be lever-
aged in concert with others, so
that. the community, working
together, can most effectively
address the large, pervasive chal-
lenges facing the region.

Merging Finances For Newlyweds
The honeymoon is over, the
gifts are opened, the thank you
notes are looming, you're back at.
work and the bills are waiting. So
how do you and your spouse
merge your finances and begin a
life of married bliss?
Arguing with a spouse or
partner about money is one of the'
top three. things that worry
Americans the most about their
personal finances. For newlyweds,
your finances (or lack thereof) still
need to be addressed. Although it
can be stressful, time-consuming
and a little overwhelming, merg-
ing finances doesn't have to be a
negative experience. The following,
tips are for newlyweds hoping to
live happily ever after:
Know where you are headed.
Even before you walk down the
.aisle, you: and your, soon-to-be
spouse should share the intimate
details of your financial life. You
may find that both of you hate
financial planning, but that does-
n't mean that avoiding it together
makes it any easier.
To change or not to change.
Some couples stay with their
.given names, some women
replace their middle name with
their maiden name, some couples
hyphenate and others create a
completely new last name. It's up
to you. However. if you are going
to change your name, take the
time to update records' identifica-
tion and other important docu-
Let the government in onyour
good news. If you change your
name, you will also need to-
update your Social Security card,'
.,preferably before tax season
comes around. Visit the Social
Security Administration's web site
:at ww-w.ssa.gov for more informa-
tion. but be prepared to provide
information documenting your

new and old names. You can
expect to receive your new card in
10 days showing your new name
but with your same number.
If you don't take time to
change your,Social Security card
or decide riot to change your
name, the IRS assures you that
you can still file taxes as "Married
Filing Jointly." For answers to
questions on how to file as a mar-
ried couple, visit www.irs.gov.
You'll also need to take a trip
to your Department of.' Motor
Vehicles to update your driver's
license. Call ahead. or visit
wv-.dmv.org for details on docu-
mentation your state requires.
That little piece .of paper.
Don't put that marriage certificate
away in a special place where "you
%won't forget it." Chances are that
your favorite financial representa-
tives weren't able to .make it to
'your wedding, and, even if they
did, they will need to see the cer-
tificate to confirm that you did
indeed tie the knot if you want to
change your accounts.
Pictures of you at the recep-
tion cutting the cake won't work
'"either. Even airline frequent flyer
programs have been known to
request it before updating your
records with a new married name,
so make sure to keep it handy.
Consolidation may save you
money. You may find it easier to
have separate rather than consol-
idated accounts because its eas-
ier to keep track of w\Tltten checks.
and you don't have to share a
physical checkbook..' But you
might incur more bank and check
fees, so senously consider merg-
ing your accounts instead.
If' you do consolidate. try
using checkbooks that have
duplicate records and leaving the
check register in a centraJl loca-
tion. Then you and your spouse
can. record the checks, with-
draw als and deposits in one place.
Make a date. Once you are
married. ,ou and spouse can still
make dates with one another.
Flirting during the date may take
second fiddle while you discuss
financial planning. but you will

We thank all of you who have
been praying for Jackie Quarles.
Please continue to pray as. she
continues to improve. We look for-
ward to the time that she can
come back to school to take care
of all those things that only Miss
Jackie can do.
School is off and running,
again. We had, a good first week
after vacation. Vacation is good: it
is also good to be back in the pro-
ductive mode. One of the first
things to be done is to determine
which student will represent
Faith Christian in the county
spelling bee next week.
VFW held. It's great to see young
people who love our country and
aren't afraid to show it.
Report cards were sent home
yesterday, and I hope only good
news was heard for the sake of
parents and students.
All the girls who signed up for
softball need to remember to
bnng your physical exam report
to Mrs. Dunn by the 28th of
January. Until you bring it, you
xwill not be able to practice.
The little-known fact for this
week is: In the state of Utah. it is
against the law to curse in front of
a dead person. I've heard of
strange laws. but what will the
dead person care?
That's all for this weekly I'm
sure no one will forget, but there
is no school Monday to celebrate
Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr. Day.
The field trips on Friday were
great. At the DeSoto Archaeolog-
ical Site' in Tallahassee, .grades
four through eight were. able to
visit several different.: stations,
Most of the students particularly
enjoyed the one on Indian camp
life. Other stations included the
armor 'used in de Soto's era. a
setup 'of de Soto's camp, and
Kindergarten through grade
three had a lot of constructive fun
experiencing Living History Day
at the Constitution Park here in
St. Joe. Seeing the way things
used to be in the making of soap
and chitlins. cooking over a fire.
turpentining, etc., is not only
exciting and makes us thankful
for the conveniences we have, but
it should also influence us to be a
little more industrious.
On Monday, chapel was led
by Pastor Wade Hunt of the First
Church of the Nazarene. He pre-
sented a very effective demonstra-
tion of the effect of sin in our lives
and the effect of the forgiveness
that Christ gives us when we
come to Him.
School will not be in session
on Monday, January 21.
Faith Chnstian would like to
thank the John C. Gainous Post
of the VFW for their generous con-
tribution for playground equip-
ment. We would also like to reiter-
ate our gratitude to all who have
given of .themselves to make
things better this year.

Index, the CPI measures price
changes for goods and services
and looks at the cost of housing,
food, transportation, clothing,
medical care, and electricity,
among other things. The CPI can
predict the direction of inflation
and changes in the purchasing
power of money.
Non-Farm Payrolls: This is a
broad-based indicator of' the
nation's economic health because
it points to potential changes in
consumer spending patterns
which, in turn, can affect corpo-
rate profits. A steady increase in
the number of people. employed
nationally indicates that many
businesses are experiencing
strong growth in sales and profits,
and are responding by adding
workers to their payrolls.
Conversely, steadily declining
numbers point to a cooling of the
economy and wariness on the part
Stock Indexes: The two most
important of these are the Dow
Jones Industrial Average, which
tracks the stocks of 30 major
companies hakl by many institu-
tions and individuals, and the
Standard & Poor's 500 Index,

transportation, industrial, utility,

indexes generally are accurate
indicators of the national econ-
omy because the market tends to
anticipate future economic condi-
tions. Remember of course,
Investors cannot directly pur-
chase any index.
Other Indexes: These-include
retail sales,. housing starts, the
prime rate, the dollar index -(the
value of the dollar as measured
against other foreign currencies),
the three-month Treasury Bill
rate, and new car sales. Each spe-
cific index reflects important eco-
nomic trends and together with
other indexes, can help you take
the pulse of the national economy.
However, it should be noted
that informed investors do not.
consider these proven economic
indexes as gospel; rather, they
should be used as tools and
guides for helping investors make
more intelligent decisions. Your

busy lecturing their children to
truly listen or. they only pretend to
listen. (Guilty? Nit-, too.)
Parents who listen well to
their children may reap many
rewards. Perhaps the most impor-
tant" of these is that listening
enables parents to-i really know
and enjoy their children.
Improved-behavior is another
reward, because children who are
heard don't have to use inappro-
priate means to capture parental
attention. Listening is also one. of
the best \ays to show your child
love, respect, 'and attention.
It does take time and effort to
actively listen with undivided
attention, and to.give encouraging
responses'. But with a few practi-
cal guidelines, even the busiest
parefits can find time to listen.to
a child who feels he or she' has'
something important to say.
1. Be considerate. If you are
too busy at the mornentl, set a
time' when you can listen.
Bedtime is often good for a heart-
2. Be honest. 'If you are
uncomfortable with a topic or
don't know the answer, admit it. It
may benimote appropnate to refer-
your child to a teacher, family.
member, or library.
3. Don't interrupt. Let your
child speak without breaking in,
especially if the conversation is
4. Pay attention. Be calm
and maintain eye contact.
5. Really listen. Concentrate
on hearing and understanding
what your child has said.
6. Provide feedback.
Encourage your child to continue
to talk by making appropriate
7. Be aware of the message
told "by the eyes. Watching a
child's body language and facial
expressions will increase under-
standing. Remember, your body
language also sends a message.
8. Courtesy counts. Avoid
raising your voice, expressing
anger, or humiliating your child.
9. Acknowledge the mes-
sage. Even if you disagree make it
clear that you understood the
10. Silence is golden.
Remember, the less' you say and
the more you listen, the more
your child will listen to you and
hear what you say when you talk!
