Water Release
Schedules OK'd
Florida, Georgia and Alabama
announced an agreement in prin-
ciple on water release schedules
for the Apalachicola/Chatta-
hoochee/Flint (AFC)'. river basin.
After. three years of negotiations,
the states, have taken an impor-
tant step forward in resolving
their long-standing dispute over,
the allocation -of water' in the ACF
basin.
The Nature Conservancy has
been following the progress of the
ACF Compact for more than three.
years, and is encouraged by the:
apparent agreement among, the
states. The proposal reflects -sev-
eral' of the concepts the conser-
Svahney believes appropriate for
conservation of the biological
value of theApalachicola Basin.
S' These includerecognizing the
need to manage for variable river
flows that are similar to the nat-
ural flow regime; and periodic sci-
entific review of the impacts of the
compact which will provide infor-
mation useful to the state and
federal agencies in ongoing river
management..
While the Conservancy has
not yet had the opportunity to
review all the details, it appears
that this agreement is a step for-
wasrd in creating an ecological
safety net for the ACF.
The Nature Conservancy is,
concerned about the future of the
Apalachicola River basin because
it is home to at least 127 rare
species of plants'and animals and
45 of Florida's 6 native habitats.
According to a' five-year study
released in March 2000, the
area's striking airay of habitats,
plants, fish, reptiles and amphib-
ians makes it one of the top six
biodiversity "hot spots" i the
United States.
The next step in the compact
process is for the states to place'
the proposed agreement on flows
into a comprehensive draft agree-
ment, and the Conservancy will
evaluate this agreement when it
is released.


The Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce has set a tentative date
of March 15 for its annual mem-
5, bership dinner. Plans will be final-
ized based on the acceptance of a
special guest speaker, whose
name has not yet been released.
"We are waiting for final con-
firmation of our guest speaker,"
said Sandra' Chafin, Executive
Director of the Chamber. "As soon
as we hear from his office, we can

Ooops
In last week's edition of The
Star, it was inadvertently stated
that Gumdrop Books is relocating
to Gulf County.
Negotiations are ongoing with
Gumdrop, but a final decision has
not been made to date. Gulf
County is the company's top
choice to date and a final
announcement concerning the
company's plans will hopefully be
made in the near future.


Local Businesses Awarded


Port City Shopping Center, GeriCare, and Sunshine State Cypress


Receive Recognition From Opportunity Florida during "Celebration"
O "tOn n.Orig a'o


Gulf County took center stage
last Tuesday evening at the first
celebration/awards dinner hosted
by Opportunity Florida in
Marianna at Chipola Jr. College.
"We wanted to give some spe-
cial recognition to some business-r
es and individuals who have
brought dramatic economic
impact to their communities,"
said Richard Williams, director of
the eight county region of
Opportunity Florida which
includes Gulf County. '
Williams was not surprised at
all .that two of three awards pre-
sented went to business owners
located in Gulf County. He stated
that people who have made
investments in the community at
a time when the county and City
of Port St. Joe were at an eco-
nomic bottom (after the shutdown
of the mill) as being somewhat
heroic.
Duren's Piggly Wiggly/Port
City Shopping Center and Geri
Care Assisted Living &
Rehabilitation Center were two of
the business development
endeavors that. Opportunity
Florida was actively involved in
assisting. "Those business people
riot only invested in their commu-
nities. but they did so at a time.
and m a way that added to the
communities when jobs were des-
perately needed." Williams
observed.
Between the two Gulf County
companies. Port City SholpiiP .-
Center and Geri, Care. Assisted
Living & Rehabilitation Centere
more than 75 new jobs have been
created.
Tommy McDonald. past
chairman of Opportunity Florida
and head of economic develop-
ment in Washington County',
made the award presentations to
George and Hilda Duren (Piggly
Wiggly) and Billy Williams and his
wife Geri (Geri Care Assisted
Living & Rehabilitation Center).
He also presented a third
award to Sunshine State Cypress
(Liberty County). Williams noted
that this cypress mulch and tim-
- ber company was Opportunity
Flonda's first project and also
answered the call for a
community that was reeling from'
the impact of a downturn in the
timber business.
Clay Smallwood, president of
St. Joe Timberland. representing
the St. Joe Company-owners of.
Sunshine State Cypress-
received this award on behalf of.
the company.
Sunshine State Cypress cur-
rently employs 55 people at its'
site in Liberty County and indi-
rectly influences approximately
another 25 jobs, for a total impact
of around 75 employees.
Gulf. Franklin, Calhoun,
Liberty,, Holmes, Gadsden,


Jackson. and Washington coun-
ties comprise the eight county\
region, most of which are in State


Representative Bev Kilmer's dis-
tiact. She presented a PowerPoint
presentation giving information


about Opportunity Florida and
opportunities available in this
area through the public/pnvate


partnership organization.

St. Joe Company Seeking More Jobs


For Gulf- "Going Outside The Box"


"St. Joe Company wants to be
able to look back and say, 'We've
done ever-thing we can to bring
this company to the area.'" said
Neal Wade, as he focused on the
company's efforts to stimulate
economic development.
Wade joined the St. Joe team
nearly two years ago, coming from
Alabama where he headed one of
the most successful economic
development teams in the world.
When St. Joe went looking for
someone to head its economic
development team for Northwest
-Flonda. they found this man.
Wade, nght in their back yard.
Wade and the St. Joe
Company economic development
team are worlkng hard to bnng
jobs to Northwest Florida and one
of the primary goals is to bring
those jobs to some of the places
with the greatest need. Areas
such as Gull" County get special'
attention from the company offi-
cials to help develop jobs.
"We're prepared to go outside
the. box to stimulate economic
growth in this area," Wade said.
Indeed, going outside the box
is exactly ,what they have done as
negotiations with "Gumdrop
Books" to bring over, 100 jobs to
Gulf County stalled, and the
community was removed from the
picture..
Wade called company officials
and discussed the fact that the
area had been taken off the com-
pany's list of possible relocation
sites. Officials said, what will it
,take to get back 'in the negotia-
tions?
Clay Smallwood, president of
St. Joe Timberland, said it was
about that time when he received
a call from Wade. "How attached
are you to your office?" he asked
Smallwood, with the obvious over-
tones being that the three story
office complex, located at the end
of Reid Avenue in Port St. Joe,
was now on the table to sweeten
the deal for location in this area.
Indeed, the community was
back in the picture, and efforts
continue to work out a relocation
package for "Gumdrop Books."
Gulf County is now the top choice,
on Gumdrop's list, and if they
relocate from their home state of
Missouri, will find an incentives
package that is second to none.
Whether Gumdrop answers
the call and locates in the area or
decides to stay put, one resound-
ing message is very clear from St.
Joe economic development offi-
cials, "We'll do whatever it takes


(within reason) to stimulate eco-
nomic growth in this area."
Some of the other incentive


offers made to Gumdrop include
Qualified Target. Industry status.
tax abatement, other various


state and local benefits,

FEMA Zoning Maps Are In...

Gulf County Commissioners Tackle Heavy Agenda Tuesday


Gulf County Chief
Administrator Don Butler told
commissioners that the new
FEMA flood/zoning maps have
arrived. Over the past few years,
residents of the Cape San Blas
area and commissioners have bat-
ties with FEMA over designation
of various flood zones probabili-
ties in the area.

FEMA's original proposal gave
much of the property in the area a
higher flood probability which
would have had a severe impact
on development of much of the
property affected by the changes.
Property owners and the county
organized a campaign to counter
FEMA's plans with some scientific
data and several meetings with
FEMA and governmental repre-
sentatives.


The current maps, just
received, are the result of that
effort and much of the land has
been redesignated favorably.
Butler said the new maps
were available for viewing at the
Planning/Building Department
between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5
p.m. and located in the Robert M.
Moore Administration Building,
Room 301, at the Gulf County
Courthouse complex.
The maps were received on
January 22nd, buti the 30-day
window for public comments
about the maps actually began on
January 11llth and ends ,on
February 11th. The county is fil-
ing for an extension on this peri-
od, based upon the fact that they
do not anticipate the public will
have adequate time to make
responses.


Contractors Services
Gulf County Building Official
Michael Hammond announced
during the board's meeting that
he is planning a seminar for all
contractors and related business
parties to discuss changes to the
building codes.
The state has made several
major changes to building
requirements, especially within
coastal communities. Gulf County
recently amended its building
codes to comply with those new
standards and on February 5th at
the Gulf County Senior Citizens
Center Hammond will review
those changes and how they will
impact contractors and home-
builders. The seminar will be held
from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., EST.

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY '- -.-... 44 4 f 4 W ( -iik4 by Kesley Colbert
I COLUMN A EY T G
WRITTEN BY
WILLIE RAMSEY, EDITOR The Grand U 1


Congratulations!

If you've never had the opportunity to own and operate a small
business, it is very difficult to understand the trials and tribulations
these folks have to deal with.
Nothing makes me happier than to see some of these indepen-
dent businessmen doing things that not only show they are pretty
.good business people, but also are making positive investments in
the future of their communities. As pointed out in the news story in
this issue of The Star relating to Opportunity Florida minaking awards
6f recognition to some of these business people, Gulf has been
blessed with new job growth because of the commitment and risks
taken by these business people.
Normally these sort of things creep by without much notice or,
worse yet, are misinterpreted to be efforts of self gratification rather
than giant leaps of faith.
When a small business person makes these commitments, it
generally requires a partnership agreement with their local banker
and a whole lot of prayer. Groups such as Opportunity Florida.
Enterprise Florida, local economic development committee, the gov-
ernor, and legislative representatives help to put together a plan of
assistance and incentives that helps make these types of develop-
ments and expansions possible.
I would not even begin to try and name .the number of new small
businesses that have opened over the past few years. These "Mom
and Pop" operations account for the vast majority of the total num-
ber;of jobs in not only the State of Florida, but across the nation.
They are also seemingly taken for granted sometimes. Back
before Christmas, I seized the opportunity to editorialize about sup-
porting merchants in our communities by shopping with them as
much as possible, at least giving them an opportunity to quote prices
on your needs. The thrust of the editorial was to remind folks that
these were the very same people who paid local taxes, supported
local projects, and sponsor everything from little league to cheer-
leader camp.
They're Getting By Too Cheap
I've seen advertising from some of the national chain stores say-
ing, "Shop with us and we'll give l'c0 of your purchase back to the
school or non-profit organization of your choice, if you ask us to and
register."
Well, dadgum, what a deal I'm sure most every small busi-
ness owner I know 'wishes they could get by so cheaply, and local
people feel as though they have been properly served.
In fact, it would surprise me if the vast majority cf small busi-
nesses in our communities did not give more than 10o of their total
gross income to just such organizations. .I
J would hope that as our schools and not-for-profit organizations
look for businesses to do business with. they would indeed evaluate
the role that these companies play in our community. There is no
question about it, they can't serve all the community's needs, but if
they're not given the opportunities to expand services by providing
the services they can meet, the real loss will be much more than 1oo.

Ain't No Country Club
While exercising my remote control the other evening. I must
havecaught a cramp in my finger which caused me to pause on CNN
long enough to hear one of its interviewers trying to get the service
person in charge of the Guantanamo prison "detainment" facility to
say detainees were not being treated humanely.
I'm sorry, I didn't get the name of the officer in charge because
he failed to cower down to such a line of questioning. He described
the living conditions of the men and women in uniform who were
having to stay in tents and deal with some rather difficult living con-
ditions themselves, while guarding some pretty dangerous Al Queda
and Taliban prisoners who would really like to kill the guards.
Maybe what might be a little more humane treatment would be
to erect a 10 foot fence around the World Trade Center site and let
the captured prisoners spend their days cleaning up the site .
nahhh. on second thought, I believe their presence would bring dis-
honor to those who lost their lives.


We were having lunch with,
some friends over ,the holidays
when one of them commented that ,
our old shed had seen its better
days. I glanced out the bay window
without really looking and quickly


agreed. 'Ahh. it ain't much of a
building. And wve haven't done
anything to fix it up over the years.
I probably ought to tear it down."
After our'guests departed I lin-
gered at the table over a glass of
tea and mr eyes moved across the
back yardL to the liLttle out building.
It had come \\ith the house. I don't
think I even walked out there until
after Cathy had told me this was
the place we wanted.
It wasn't big enough for a real
work shed. And I didn't have the


money to replace it! It got to stay
by default. Plus. in those early
days it housed our washer and
dryer.
I "discovered" the real Q. P.
Wise in that ltade building. We had
a two month old baby. Cloth dia-
pers. A fifteen year old Kenmore
that quit right in the middle of a
wash. And it was late on a
Saturday afternoon.. .
I called Q. P.
"I've got two dryers to put back
together. Thie air conditioner


kicked off at the high school again.
I've got a condenser problem at
George's. And I've got to go down to
Apalach and replace a fan in a
cooling system."
My heart sank. I'm supposed
to be taking care of my family-
"Keep the light on." Q. P. read
my pause. "It may be late before I
can get by. Let's see, that washer
is in the back in that little shed ..

He wasn't asking me. He was
reminding himself It was 11 p.m.
when he roared around my vehi-,
cles and pulled his old truck right
up to the wash hose. By the time.
I could walk from the kitchen out
there, he had the 'washer over- on'
its side and was attacking it from
the bottom.
"It's a bad motor."
My heart sank' again. It was
nearing midnight. We were down
to our last clean diaper. And. Josh
hiad eaten a gigantic supper!
I looked at Q. P., hoped heldid--
n't see the near 'bout tears in my
eyes .. and prayed for a miracle.,
"I might have one on, my
truck."
He sprinted 'out the door.
There's no-way! No one drives
Around; in the middle of the night
.with a motor for a fifteen year old'
Kenmore in the back of their pick-
up!
""Yep, thought I had one." He
grinned as he re-entered, holding
out the part as to assure me things
were going-to be all right. .
He helped me load the washer
and waited for a couple of cycles
before rounding up his tools. ."Q.
P., how much do I owe you?".
'Let's see. seven dollars ought
to cover it." .
SEVEN DOLLARS Was he kid-
ding? He came .out here at mnid-,
night. He spent an hour -working
on "it. He had the motor I had to
ha!
"Q..P., seven dollars ain't near
enough!" ,
"You can. pay me more,"h
chuckled. "But I'm satisfied with,
seven dollars.!"'-
Q. P. Wise taught me a lesson
in that little shed that I have never
forgotten-there's a lot more to life
than labor and parts!
remembered the years it
served as a locker room. Josh and
Jess drove nails: into those old"
walls and hung their football gear.
Chris 'and .Clay Cox would opme
over. They would play in that back
yard for hours. and at half time
and between games they would
retreat to the "locker room" to lick
their wounds and plan strategy.
In the baseball games the shed
served as the left field wall. If you
bounced it off the side, it was, a
ground rule double. If you could
hit the roof on the fly, it was; a
home rurin I remember like yester-
day the first "long one" Jesse' lifted
over our "Green' Monster." Baile
Ruth never struck one with' more

Wesley and Bill Musta Been Kin to Tom and .


THE MORE I WRITE this
blurb, the more surprises I get.
Last week, for instance, I-
received a letter from a reader by
the name of Bill Ferguson up in
Huntsville, Alabama.
Bill says he was raised in
Bristow,, Oklahoma, just seven
miles from where I was born.. We
roamed the same woods during
our childhood and both wit-
nessed the decline of our home-
towns when the oil and gas fields
began to play out. Shamrock
declined more than-Bristow.
Bill is about my age so he
began life in Bristow about the
same time I did in Shamrock.
I vaguely remember that
Bristow was one of the larger
towns in Creek County and was a
center for trade from all around.
It started as a medium large city
of about 20,000 in the 1920s and
declined to its present population
of 4,500.
Shamrock is less than 1001


ETAOIN SHRDLU


Written by Wesley Ramsey


MY UNCLE, FOR. WHOM I
am named, lived in Bristow for
nearly 60 years,, in the same
house, driving a tractor trailer for.
the Sinclair Oil Co. I believe he
lived on South Sixth Street and
his name was Raymond Ramsey.
Maybe Bill remembers him.
My grandmother is buried in
the cemetery there.
As Bill points out in his letter,
that portion of Oklahoma is
"great people and great territory."
It's the prettiest part of Okla-
homa.
Bill is a subscriber of The
Star and a frequent visitor to the
Beaches area, here. This is how


'he'. became a sub-criber to Te'
Star.
He read my column of -two
weeks ago, in which I mentioned
ari adventure I had in Shamrock.
catching a mess of crawdads inh
Lew Ferris' pond-more accurate-
ly described as a small mud pud-
dle! .

I REMEMBER BRISTOW,
since I went once to the city
accompanied by my grandmoth-
er. I was about 10 years old.
I participated in a county
spelling bee, representing the
Shamrock Elementary School.
When my father .died, I was


going through some 'of the papers
he and Momma had saved and
found the certificate I had won at:
that spelling bee. It was f6rseq-
ond place.
I remember, after the compe-
tition was over. my grandmother'
took me downtown to have dinner
in a cafe. I remember having a
,. store-bought hamburger. the first
onelI had ever had.
After the meal, she bought
me a dessert. It was the biggest
piece of cherry pie you ever saw,
topped with a big scoop of real
whipped; cream. .That whipped
cream was the real thirigl No Cool.
Whip back in those days! Who
says every change is an improve-
ment?
I also had ar uncle and aunt,
who lived at Depew. That was
halfway between Shamrock and
Bristow, just after you came to
the paved highway, off the dirt
highway that went between the
two towns; You went around your
elbow traveling between the two


towns back then.

BILL WRITES ABOUT hunt-
.ing rabbits and squirrel in the
Woods between .the 'two towns. I,
arid my cronies, 'used to roam
these same woods. As a matter of
tact. a couple of us walked the old.
Fnrsco Railroad tracks 'one day,;
all'the way to Depew.
If Momma had :known that
her son,,who was all of 11 years
old at. the time, had done a trick
like that, she would have whaled
the daylights out of us!
Of course, we were on a mis-
sion. We had heard of some black
walnut trees out in those woods
and were set on finding them.
We never did.
We prided ourselves on know-
ing where the trees were located
which produced the largest hick-
ory nuts and the largest pecans
and just when they were ready to
gather. So, when we heard of
those black walnuts, the explorer,
just came out in us..


Huck!

LIKE TOM SAWYER and
Huckleberry Finn, we had
favorite places in the' wods arid
knew where every interesting
place was.
We had a "water falls" located
in the woods, where we played'a
lot' of the time. Of course, there
was no water over the falls, but
there was. a .drizzle over the cliff
when it rained.
There were several' old car
bodies abandoned out in the
woods we played on and let our
imagination run away with us as
.to their origin.
We knew right where the
largest possum grapes grew and
just when they got ripe. Thie
grapes grew on vines which rani
up blackjack oak saplings which
we would pull over to the ground
to get the grapes.
Kids can have loads of fun
and adventure out in the woods. I
wouldn't take anything for Mny
experience in the woods of souflb-
east Oklahomal

Looking At Healthcare
Don Butler and Billy Williams
(Health Committee- representa-
tives) briefed the board on meet-
ings with Sacred Heart Hospital
and Bay Medical Center to
improve medical care in Gulf
County. Both said that a variety of
scenarios were discussed and that
there's significant interest in the
area. Williams said a community-
wide assessment of needs would
be the next step.
The board decided to revamp
the Health Committee reducing
the number of members to five-
Dave May, Dr. Tom Curry, Doug
Kent, Dr. Barnes, and Williams.


Items of Other Business
*Held first reading and public
hearing on a proposed new subdi-
vision ordinance.

eral recommendations from the
Planning/Development Review
Board.
*Agreed to apply for road
grant to pave the remaining por-
tion of Howard Creek Road
(Highwxay 387) and the Overstreet
Road (Highway 386). The Willis
Landing Road (Highway 381) is

JANUARY 20,1977
Old Man Winter Makes Florida Trip
Snow and ice cover palms and aza-
leas in Forest Park in Port St. Joe.
Snow in the'Panhandle blanketed the
city for a period of time and brought
out the people In droves to ride around
looking at a sight which isn't seen very
often in these parts.
Since the people of the community
had to contend with the snow for only
about a 48 hour penod. it was pretty. If
the experience had been longer, the
adjective would probably be different.
Water Emergency Caused By
Freezing Temperatures
The snow and its attending freez-.
ing temperatures put the residents of
Port St. Joe into a potential emergency
situation Wednes-day. even though
most of them didn't klow it.
Plummeting temperatures froze
and burst the main water valve at the
water treatment plant through which
,water flows to the storage tanks on
Long Avenue.,
The potential catastrophe .was in
the fact that -he only water supply the
citv had was what was in the storage
tanks. Even Lths supply was being,
depleted more rapidly than usual with
frozen pipes throughout the city caus-
ing leakage. .

what Opportunity Florida is all
* about. "Creating and retaining.
jobs is the bottom line for. us,"
said Williams, as he summarized.
the group's number one objective.
"We'll do whatever we have to
do' to. help promote jobs; that,
includes everything from pouring
coffee, filling out paperwork, or
working -with state, federal, and
local officials to put together an
incentive package," he added.
This area of the State of
'Florida also received, special
attention from Governor Jeb


Bush who has designated it a
"Rural Area of Economic
Concern." This naming brings
even more assistance and focus to
economic development in the
region.

pride.... .
Mercy, I'd almost forgotten about skinning the coon! Josh had to try
it "all by myself" We had blood and guts and fur all over the place.
I built the boys' dressers out in that old building. It didn't seem to
matter to them back then that their dad was a' pouring over that table
saw (or screaming saw as they called it), shaping and cutting and mold-
ing ...... It was a labor of love for me. 'And I pray someday they will run
a hand across the top of those dressers with a different view ....
It was hotter than blue blazes the July Josh, Dana Maige, and me put
the new shingles on. They were kids, but they worked like Trojans'.
The last time my Father "jumped on me pretty good" was about those
naked places in the electrical wires running out to the shed. "Son, that's
so dangerous, one of the boys could hit it with a stick, it could fall. You
need to do something about it! Now!"
I eased back from the table and moved, as if being called, toward the
shed. The cracked bottom board at the back was from a runaway four-
wheeler. Unless you looked real close you couldn't tell the panes of glass
I had replaced from the originals. I remembered the paint fights when we
re-coated the old building.
I glanced up to the empty sky where the wires used to be. Dad would
be proud of mel I buried those things the year Q. P. rewired the old shed.
The washer and dryer have long since moved into the house with the new
addition, but I remembered the late night dashes across the yard with an
arm load of clothes. And the old building was still sound thanks to the
-mid-life roof update!
I eased inside and soaked in the smell of a locker room-mixed with
one decaying coon skin! I tried on a Los Angles Rams football helmet and
picked up a twenty-eight inch aluminum bat. Neither had seen battle in
many-a-year, but let me tell you, both had shined in their day! I heard
the balls once again bouncing off the wall. And voices, oh so familiar voic-
es, seemed to rise from the floor; "orie more time, diddy, just one more .

On second thought, I was wrong about it not being much of a build-
ingl And you can forget about tearing it down or replacing it. You talk,
about busting at the seams with character, heart, and life
Come over sometime-I'll proudly give you a tour. And you can see
and hear for yourself ....
Thankfully,

Federal Food Stamp
Program Is Effective
Statistics show that the Food
Stamp Program is helping primar-
ily to support the youngest, the
most needy and the working poor,
according to a new study released
today by the U.S. Department of
Agriculture.
The study, entitled "Char-
acteristics of Food Stamp
Households: Fiscal Year. 2000",
shows that more than half of all
food stamp recipients were chil-
dren. Households with children
were, often working-poor house-
holds. While more -than -one-
fourth' of .all food stamp
households had earned Income,
43 percent of those with children
had earnings.
"More than 91 percent of food
stamp benefits went to house-
holds with children, elderly or dis-\
abled people in fiscal year 2000.
and the vast majority of food
stamp households had incomes
that were at or below the federal
poverty guideline," said. Eric. M.
Bost, USDA Under,, Secretaiy for
Food. Nutrition and Consumer
Services. "That's what the pro-
gram was intended to do.'
The study also,shows:
Slightly over half of all par-
ticipants were children; 39 per-.
cent were non-elderly adults and
10 percent were elderly (age 60 or
over). ,.
About one-third of all food
stamp households had incomes at
or below half the poverty line: only-
11 percent had income above the
poverty line.
39 percent of all food stamp
participants were white, 36 per-
cent were African American, 18
percent were .Hispanic, nearly
four percent Asian and nearly two
percent Native American.
The vast majority over 95
;percent of participants were
U.S.-born citizens. Slightly more
than ,four percent were legal
immigrants.
"The'Food Stamp Program is
the first line of defense against
hunger, and continues to play a
critical role in facilitating the tran-
sition from welfare to work," Bost
said.

dog. Being an animal lover and
concerned about'the safety of the
people, I pulled over and
attempted to get the dog off the
highway. Many other people had
also stopped to help, one of them

Highway 98
Realignment
The Gulf County Board of
Commissioners recently voted in
favor of a resolution approving St.
Joe/Arvida's plan for a stretch of
Hwy. 98 along St. Joe Beach. This'
marks the beginning of a new era
in Gulf County and we' can expect
many changes to the way of life
here .


run To their credit, St. Joe has.
avys.. addressed the concerns of many
and local residents by including pub-
ogs lic beach areas in the master plan
ogs a and maintainiing that the
community will not be a gated
one. They have also agreed to pro-
ep. t vide right ofl way along the new
e. to road to allow for expansion to four
lanes in the future. -
rone It is up to the county to
k- assure that'the pl,-anning around
this new development is as good
son, as that within it. Several issues
need to be addressed. What kind'
of development, if any. is top be',"
permitted along the new "back
beach road?" Will there be service,.
roads to limit slow moving traffic
and congestion along this comdor
orwi:i the road be lImited access'?
Will the new road have a median
Sor bike lanes?
s; Does the county need to con-
sider.a sign ordinance to avoid the
visual clutter that characterizes:
most of Panama City? What sort
of safety measures can be-taken
'- now, 'in the pre-construction
phase. so that.we don't face many,
of the issues Panama City Beach
is currently dealing wth on their
own Back Beach Rd.?
Regarding the public beach
':. access there are questions as
well. How. will the area be main-
tained and by whom? If the areas
are public access,. who will be
liable for accidents' or injuries
occurring within them? 'What
assurances, does the county have
that these areas will remain pub-
Tic after the development is com-
Spleted?
Commissioners and the St.
Joe Company should work with
state officials to streamline the
process of fundirig and building
the new road. Ideally, the road
should be built as a four-lane ini-
tially. The current roadway is at
or near capacity lor much of the
year already. Waiting to add two
lanes to the road after it is con-
structed would only increase the
final cost to the taxpayers, as well
as create, an unsafe situation for
those of us who must travel this

road daily.
As the population increases
and undeveloped beach becomes
more of a rarity, the public beach
areas will see a rise in usage. The
county should act now to assure
such areas remain publicly acces-
sible. This may mean seeking
funds from the state to 'purchase
such lands outright or negotiating
for county ownership of dedicated
beach areas..
It would seem in the best
interest of the county to deal with
these issues now and avert prob-
lems that may be unsolvable after
the development is in place.
Change is inevitable. We live along
nearly 'the last undeveloped
stretch of beachfront m in
Northwest Florida and' it is gold-
en! Let's work now to assure that
it stays that way. ,

Reasonable Look

at Realignment:
Dear Editor:
The citizens and business
people of Gulf County and the
State of Florida should look'at the'
realignment of Highway 98 from
the Dixie Belle curve to St. Joe
Beach in a reasoned manner.
1. The WindMark develop-
ment proposed by St. Joe Com-
pany/Ar-ida is a beautiful and
well-planned development that
should serne the area well.

2. The development will cause
an additional strain on two-lane
Highway 95. whether the road is
realigned or not. The traffic load
could double on a road that is
currently almost impassable in
the summer months. The addi-
tional traffic will come, from not
only the additional transient and
permanent residents in the area,
but also from the construction
and development of WindMark.


3. The current scenic
Highway 98 from Dixie Belle curve
to St. Joe Beach is a "treasure" to
the residents of Gulf County and
to all the citizens of the State of
Florida. There are few other com-
parable views in the State of
Florida.
4. We, as citizens of Gulf
County, have the obligation to
make decisions that will not only
promote economic growth in the
area, but also protect the environ-
ment and provide for the essential
infrastructure to support that
economic growth.
5. Gulf County needs a four-
lane highway (Gulf Coast
Parkway) 'that extends from the
Dixie Belle Curve to 231 near
Panama City. This is essential
infrastructure that will support
growth and accessibility in the
Area. It will prevent, additional
traffic on an already strained
Highway 98 going through Mexico
Beach and Tyndall Air Force Base.
It .will also provide additional
value to St. Joe Company by pro-
viding better access to its proper-
ties. I do not believe that Highway
98 should be realigned, nor devel-
opment started on the WindMark
project until the "Gulf Coast
Parkway road project has been
approved by the State of Florida
for the full distance (all three
phases).
6. We should be concerned
about any verbal or written agree-,
merit that assures the public
Success to the property. Agree-
ments can be altered,.'broken or
canceled; property transfers can-
,not. What happens. when resi-
dents of WindMark are unhappy
with the volume of people on
"their" beach and boardwalk? Will
they attempt to limit access only
to the outside areas of the devel-
opment?
7. If. Highway 98 is -to be
realigned, then St. Joe Company
should cede to the State of Florida

It's early January, time to
make good on that New Year's res-
olution about exercise.
Here's a summary of the most
popular life sports:, activities you
can pursue at any point in your
life span.
Walking allows you to start at
nearly any. level of un-fitness and
increase gradually. It's easy on
the joints, which is especially
important if you are overweight.
Walking also fits in well with any
other kind of aerobic exercise, and
can be done indoors or .out,
depending on your mood.
Jogging provides an excellent
workout for heart and lungs, can
be done indoors or out, and
strengthens the lower body.
Cycling allows great exercise
for leg muscles and puts less
stress on the joints than jogging.
Biking outdoors provides lots of,
variety in. terrain and scenery;
biking indoors on a wind trainer,
or stationary bike gives you an

the land that is on the bay side of
Highway 98. If St. Joe Company is
concerned about the care of the
property and boardwalks that are
ceded to the State, they should
enter into an agreement with the
State to maintainithat property.
I know several business peo-
ple in Gulf County want St. Joe
Company to do anything that will
bring more economic development
to the area. There are also a lot of
citizens that are angry at St. Joe
Company and do not want them
to succeed in doing anything in
Gulf County. The fact is that Gulf
County is going to grow. We need
good solid planning and thought-
ful concern about future develop-
ment in Gulf County. We do not
need growth at any Fost nor do we
need revenge. The realignment of'
Highway 98 issue gives the people
of Gulf County a real opportunity
to have input as to the quality of
that. growth. We should take
advantage of that opportunity.

exercise option during cold or
rainy weather.
Swimming is a great way to
improve heart/lung capacity. It
works all the major muscle
groups, especially the upper body.
Because buoyancy supports the
body in the watet, swimming
inv61ves less shock to joints, ten-
dons, and ligaments than most
other endurance activities.
Golfing can provide a good
workout- or practically none,
depending on what you make of it.
To get a decent workout, walk
briskly between shots, and pull a
wheeled cart or carry your own
bag.
Rowing sports '(which
include not just. rowing but also
canoeing and kayaking) provide a
great upper-body workout and
some lower-body movement as
well. If you have access to equip-
ment and suitable bodies of water,
and if conditions are right, these
water sports can make a great
supplement to whatever other
exercise you follow regularly.

Research in the past 30 years
indicates that losing our teeth
because of aging is far from
inevitable. Nearly 70% of tooth loss
is caused by periodontal disease,
which can be recognized, diag-
nosed, and treated.
If you are in the 19-44 age
group, there's a good chance you
already have gingivitis, an early
form of gum disease. Thirty-five
percent of all adults over 18 do. If
you gums bleed when you brush or

are red, swollen; or tender, see your
dentist. You should ask your dentist
to do a periodontal examination
every time you have a routine
checkup.
The main culprit in periodontal
disease is plaque, the sticky bacte-
ria-laden film that forms constantly
on your teeth. You can't see plaque,
but it's what you. remove by daily
brushing and flossing. Some of the
bacteria produce acids from sugars
and starches in the foods we eat.
The acids cause decay and can
eventually destroy bone and tissues
that anchor teeth in place.

Lighthouse Keeper's Son Sheds Light on Coast History


Bill Roberts' shed a little
"light" on the history of the
Unforgettable Coast for 52 appre-
ciative members of the St. Joseph
Historical Society Friday night. It
was the group's annual dinner
meeting at Gulf Sands
Restaurant.
Roberts told the group about
his life growing up in a lighthouse
keeper's family in Gulf, Franklin
and Bay counties'.
Three generations of Roberts
men were lighthouse keepers. His
grandfather, Walter Andrew
Roberts, started the "family busi-
ness" in 1894. The lineage ended


in 1952 when his father, also
Walter Roberts, retired as light-
house keeper at the Cape San
Blas lighthouse. His brother,
Walter, also served four years as a
lighthouse keeper.
True to tradition, the Roberts
family became lighthouse keepers
by way of the sea. As with most
early lighthouse keepers, the
elder Walter Roberts was the son
of a sea captain who plied the
seas around Key West.
He trimmed his first wick as
the assistant keeper at St. George
Lighthouse in 1894 at the age of
23.' The then-current lighthouse
at St. George had been built in


1852, the third one on the island.
He served under Lighthouse
Keeper Edward G. Porter.
In 1910, he transferred to
Cape San Blas for 10 years of ser-
vice there..
Roberts' father was born in
Apalachicola in 1896 while the
elder Roberts was stationed on St.
George. A "leap year baby,"
Roberts recalled, the family was
not sure if he was one or four on
his first birthday.
Following World War I, the
second generation of Robertses
took up the family trade wheff
Roberts' father became the assis-
tant keeper of the Pensacola
Lighthouse. He later served as
lighthouse keeper at Carrabelle,
Apalachicola and Port St. Joe.
In 1921 he transferred to the
Carrabelle' Crooked River
Lighthouse, which Roberts
recalled was no where near the
Crooked River. As with many'
lighthouses, the 'family was com-
pletely .shut off from civilization
except for access by boat. There
were no roads.
As an interesting side note,
Roberts noted that the lens from
the Carrabelle Lighthouse has
been located in a New Orleans
warehouse and efforts are inder-
way to -bring the lens back to
Franklin County.
In 1925, he was transferred
to the St. George Lighthouse as
first assistant keeper-back to the
house he had lived in as a child
when his father was the. assistant
keeper there.
In 1928, he was appointed
the keeper, a post he kept for 10
years before moving to Port St.
Joe and' the Beacon Hill'
Lighthouse. He wag keeper here
until 1952.
The Beacon Hill Lighthouse
was unique in that the family
actually lived in the lighthotise.
Other lighthouses at the. time
were towers with living quartei-s
located nearby.
Built in 1902, there were only
three keepers in the entire history
.of .the Beacon Hill Lighthouse:
Charles Lupkin from 1902 to
1928,. Clem Brooks from 1928 to
1938, and Roberts.
The Roberts' run of keeping
lighthouses ended in 1953 when
his father moved to Mary Esther.

Answers to Real Estate .
questions from your local

Century 21 Agents.



I N HASSLE- FRE E HO M E BUYING

By Brenda Miller
Perhaps you'd ,like to take advantage of today's great buyer's market in housing
but feel a little intimidated by everything that's involved. "
You know the routine; finding the right locale and the right house; negotiating an. '
agreement; putting together a down payment; and selecting the best mortgage avail-
able.
There are two things you can do. to make every step'run smoothly. The first is to
select a really professional agent who knows the real estate business, knows your local "
market, has both-a solid reputation for integrity and a solid record of success, and
clearly is eager.to respond to your needs., '
The second is to make your agent your Teammate in the literal sense of the word, .:
using teamwork to be sure that the house you ultimately, buy is the house you've always
wanted.
Making your agent your teammate requires choosing an agent you feel able.to trust both as a person and
as a professional. And.that's no small matter. In real estate as in' all areas of business as in aspects of life, actu-
ally trust can make all the difference in the world ,
True teamwork is nearly impossible to achieve unless you stick with' one agent throughout the buying process.
By all means you should shop around and shop around carefully when you're still deciding which agent to
work with. Once you've made that decision, however, don't reverse it unless (and this rarely happens to people
who are careful in the first place) something specific happens to make it clear that your choice was unwise.
Teammate status is all the motivation a first-rate agent needs to go all-out in finding houses that suit your
needs. And if you're concerned about what it is you're looking for and how much house you think you can afford,
your agent can save you huge amounts of time and, effort.
If you're not sure how much you can afford, be candid with your agent about that, too. He or she' can pro-
vide you with some helpful preliminary guidelines and can put'you in touch with mortgage lenders who know
how to get you focused on an appropriate price range.' '4 ,
It's always a good idea, as you look at listed homes, to give your agent a lot of feedback on what you've
seen. Good feedback will refine and sharpen the .agent's understanding of your likes and dislikes, which in turn
will make it easier to find the house of your dreams.
The ultimate payoff, once again, is that you get to your goal more quickly, expending less time and 'ess effort
along the way. s
Anyone wlio has ever done it this way will assure you 0f one thing; it pays off.

The sixth through eighth graders decided at the end of last term to give needed gifts to the
nursing home.instead of exchanging gifts with each other. On Friday, December 21st, they deliv-
ered to the nursing home a very large overflowing basket of needed items for the residents there.
The picture above shows the students with their teacher, Sherry Davidson, at the nursing home

the state-score range the stu-
dent's scores fell. .
Three types of questions are
included on the SSS part of FCAT:
multiple-choice, gridded-response
, questions (math grades 5-10
only), and performance tasks i
(grades 4, 5, 8, and 10 only). ,
Multiple-choice and gridded-
response questions can be
machine scored. Each answer to a '
performance task is scored holis-
tically by two trained, readers.
FCAT Writing-Students in
grades 4, 8, and 10 write an essay -
for an assigned topic (prompt).
This type of writing assessment is
called "demand writing." Students

tory or narrative essay. Students
in grades 8 and 10 write either an
expository or persuasive: essay.
Each student essay is scored
holistically by two trained read-
ers. The highest score a student

each subject you are taking as a

February Is Black History and American Pie Month
Make a Truly Southern Sweet Potato Pie to Celebrate America's Heritage


This luscious sweet potato pie is a specialty of Virginia, but it is popular throughout
the South. Sweet potatoes are just about nutritionally perfect---a good source of
fiber, packed with vitamin A and beta-carotene, and fat- and cholesterol-free.


What could be more American than
pie? Whatever the flavor, pie is
always a popular dessert. With a ten-
der and flaky crust, and a creamy or
juicy filling, pie is hard to resist.
Pies are simple and fun to make
when you follow just a few helpful
hints. The home economists at White

Lily hope to revive the art of pie and
pastry baking to the everyday home
baker. "We recognize that consumers'
time is more limited now than ever,
so we have written our recipe instruc-
tions with shortcuts and tips for bak-
ing pie crusts with success," says
Belinda Ellis, White Lily.
A good pie crust starts with the
right flour. Experienced bakers are
most concerned with the amount of
gluten-forming protein in the flour.
Tender, flaky pie crust requires a low-
protein, low-gluten flour-ideally
one with 8 to 10 grams of protein per
cup. If the package label indicates
that the flour comes from pure soft
winter wheat, then you can be sure
that it's low-protein flour. Making


flaky, tender pie crusts
require any magic tricks, but
require careful measuring
ingredients and a minimal ami
handling.

Owls Are A Good




Thing to Have


by: Barbara ellss
wildlife rehabilitator
There are five species of owls
native to Florida-barred owl, barn
owl, burrowing owl, screech owl
and the great-horned owl.
Owls are nocturnal except the
burrowing owl which is, strictly a
daytime feeder and the barred owl
which feeds at either time, night
or day. Only two of these five have
yellow irises of the eyes, with the
other three having brown eyes.

One exception to this is the great-
horned owl "Blue Eyes" as we call
him, because of his blue eyes. He
lives' at Big Bend Wildlife
Sanctary.
They are predators and all
have talons which are used to
capture and kill by squeezing to
death the prey. The beak is short
but curved so that they can pull
and. tear. the prey for eating or
feeding the young. Their bodies
are covered' with long feathers
which are soft and colored in
browns, chestnut, white, grays,
and mottled so that they blend in
with their environment. Their legs
and feet are covered with short
feathers while the edge of their
wings are covered with a serration
of small feathers which makes
them be silent hunters as ihey y1v
in capturing the prey by surprise.
The ears are remarkably
adept at hearing, as much of their
hunting is done this way. The ears
may be different in size with one
ear located 'over the eye and the
other ear located at the side of the
eye. They are' shaped differently
and are, covered by a flap which
opens as they listen to' sounds.
The sound waves .are caught by
the disc-shaped face which 'all
owls possess, and in triangula- -
tion, the sound lets the owl know
the direction and the distance the
prey is located.
The eyes are keen' They are
relatively large and appear to be :
staring straight-ahead or right at
you! They are round; and can see
prey. also, but they don't rely on
the eyes for hunting. They adapt
to daytime as the burrowing and
barred owl. 'Their heads do not
*turn completely around as: it may
seem, but the owl hI 14 Iertebra

'pletly around.
The most common.owl is the
barred owl. This owl lies. around
lakes, streams, any w.\ater area
and is very sociable either night or
day. This is the one that you hear

looks like a monkey when you are
looking at it. It lives near farms
where it eats tons of mice and rats
and small snakes. It is an aid to
the farmer and they like to have
them around because the owl's
metabolism- rate is extremely
high, therefore eating four times
or more of its bodyweight to exist.
They have been used by farmers
- to eat mice and rats in silos rather
than use pesticides.
These birds roost in. trees in

,hours. They nest in barns and
cavities laying, from five to seven
eggs with both parents feeding
and raising the young. The barn
owl is ,not seen as much on the
farm lands as once was, because
of the farm becoming almost a
thing of the past, especially barns.
Many people who do farm are try-
ing to rebuild areas just for these
beautiful creatures to have a,
place to exist in our modern envi-
ronment.
