McLemore

Investigation
A story was broken by the
Panama City News Herald last
Friday informing readers that
Gulf County Commission
Chairman Carmen McLempre is
under investigation by the
Department of Corrections.
During conversations with
McLemore Monday evening, he
confirmed there is an investiga-
tion being conducted by DOC. As
with all investigations of this
nature, neither McLemore nor
DOC officials can comment on an
achtve investigation.
What has been confusing
though is that a parallel article
concerning a probation officer
named Laramore (very similar last
name) went in depth concerning
that individual's charges..
The DOC has not .to -date
released the nature ofits investi-
gation concerning Corrections
Officer Lt. McLemore. When it has
completed the probe, information
concerning the investigation will
be made public.
Lt. McLemore was working as
the shift supervisor at Gulf
Forestry Camp. He has been reas-
signed to Calhoun Correctional
Institution where he has a similai-
job function." ,

Blue Cross Solution Ok'd



Gulf Pines Hospital & Insurance Provider Work Out Understanding


Blue Cross Blue Shield
patients can once again receive
medical services from Gulf Pines
Hospital and be assured BCBS is
paying the bill.
Hospital. Administrator Hugh
Steeley told The Star he has
reached 'an understanding' with
BCBS that allows him to bill the
insurance company directly for
services provided to BCBS policy-
holders.
The understanding, Steeley
said, is somewhat short of -an'
actual contract that would make
his hospital and its affiliated clin-
ics and doctors Blue Cross.
providers.
It will, however, assure Blue
Cross policyholders that their
'medical bills will be covered just.
as if a contract were in place, he
said.
Steeley explained that Blue
Cross policyholders who come to-
the hospital or a clinic for services
would receive treatment, then' the
hospital would bill BCBS electron-
ically, just as it always has.
Blue Cross would then issue a'
check for its share of the coinsur-
ance portion and send it directly
to the policyholder. When the.
patient brings the Blue Cross
check to the hospital that, check,*
plus any applicable deductible


amount, will be all that will be due
for any Blue Cross covered treat-
ment, Steeley said.
This 'understanding' was
forged after a months-long negoti-
ation process betVreen the hospi-
tal and Blue Cross broke down.
The hospital quit accepting Blue
Cross assignments, although it
did continue to treat Blue. Cross
patients.
According to, Steeley, Blue.
Cross had been reimbursing the
hospital at a rate that was below
his 'cost of doing business and
had been unchanged over the
past 10 years. He had asked Blue
Cross to reimburse the hospital at
the same rate as Medicare. Blue
Cross refused, saving the increase
in reimbursement rates from its
old level to that requested by
Steeley was too great -of an
. increase percentage-wise.
In a statement from Steeley,
the hospital said:
"Gulf Pines Hospital
announced today that. it would,
again- treat Blue Cross & Blue
Shield patients in the. hospital
and its clinics.
"The negotiation process was
very disappointing, and I regret
any, inconvenience it caused our
Blue Cross patients.
"We must now: however, focus


on the resolution. Our current
arrangement with Blue Cross


'does benefit both the hospital and
the patient. We would -like to


encourage everyone to utilize our
services."

45 to 50 New Jobs Coming


To Wewahitchka In Spring

STaunton TUss Planning 22,000 sf Expansion


It looks like 40 to 55 new jobs
will be coming to the
Wewahitchka area: as expansion
plans at Taunton Truss, Iric. take
place and markets are expanded.
Owner Abigail Taunton has
announced plans to expand the
firm's current location to a new
22,000 square foot building. The
new plant will be located on a por-
tion of the sLx-acre site where the
current truss plant is in opera-
tion. .
But. the new plant is only the
'house" for the much more impor-
tant factor in the expansion
plans-a new state-of-the-art
computer driven .saw. "Saw" is
clearly an understatement when
describing the heart of this. auto-.
mated truss building advance-
ment. The unit will do automati-
cally much of what is currently a
labor intensive, tedious process in
the plant. It will expand produc-
tivity from an average of two sets
of trusses per day to as many as
six to 10 sets per day,
Present production at the
plant is approximately $2 million
annually. The new plant will

Interest Shown In

"Gulf Industrial Park
During a special meeting of
the Gulf County Commission held
Monday evening, commissioners
voted to advertise forbids/request
for proposals to lease the Gulf
County Industrial Park complex
located south of Wewahitchka.
The park is located at the inter-
section of Highway 71 and
Highway 381.
The board has been seeking a
tenant for the complex since con-
struction was finished. The
12,000 square foot building is
located on nearly two acres of
property at the county's 15-acre
park complex.
A recent call for bids resulted
in no responses, but during the
board's meeting it was acknowl-
edged that conversations with
David Taunton had been held and
he was interested in the building.
Taunton approached the board
saying he was willing to meet the
(See IND. PARK on Page 3A)


increase that figure to an estimat-
.ed $10 million annually.
Taunton Truss, -Inc. currently
employs approximately 20
employees. The expansion should
raise those numbers to 60 to 75
workers after construction is
completed and marketing is in
place.
The company currently mar-
kets its wooden truss units to
approximately a 150-mile radius
of home base in Wewahitchka.
That area stretches 'from Destin,
up to the Florida-Alabama line
above Marianna, north to
Tallahassee, east beyond
Carrabelle, and south to Cape
San Bias.
With the expansion and saw-
ing equipment in place, the
Tauntons hope to better serve and
market their coverage area.
Another important addition
taking place will be an expansion
of their product line to include
metal trusses. They anticipate a
market coverage radius of as
much as 500 miles for the con-
struction and delivery of light
gauge metal truss systems.
Ground has already been bro-
ken for the construction project
which is anticipated to cost
approximately $1,000,000 when
totally built and equipped. If all
work goes according to schedule,
the new plant should be in opera-
tion within 90 days.
The building was designed by


Charles Arthur Gaskin, Architect,
and is being 'constructed by
Fisher Construction, both located
in Wewahitchka.

Chamber Of
Commerce
Annual Dinner
Still Tentative
"The Gulf County.Chamber of
Commerce has not yet confirmed
. the date of Feb. 15 for its annual
dinner," said executive director
Sandra B. Chafin. "We are still
waiting for confirmation from our
guest speaker, which we hope to
receive this week.
"However, there are two other
important events in Fel5ruary that
people should try to attend: the
Junior Service League's Mardi
Gras oh Feb. 9, and the Lincoln
Day Dinner on Feb. 18, sponsored
by the Gulf County Republican
Party and the Gulf Federated
Republican Women."
According to Chafin, in order
for everyone to support these two
events, the Chamber of Commerce
is trying to schedule its annual
dinner at a later or compatible
date. The annual dinner this year
is based on the acceptance and
time schedule of the invited
speaker.
"Just as soon as we have a
firm date, we will let everyone
know," said Chafin.

p Extension Granted

owners' Appeals Ignored by FEMA


have arrived from FEMA, as


reported in last week's edition of
The Star. The only problem is the-
maps arrived on January 22nd,
and the 30-day window for public,
comments on the maps began on
January 11.
Gulf County Chief
Administrator .Don Butler
requested an extension on that
time frame, and has notified The
Star to verify that an extension
has been granted by FEMA. The
new time frame for public com-
ment has been extended to a cut-
off day of March 4th, according to
Butler. This is an extension of
approximately thee weeks and
should allow plenty of time for
property owners along the coastal
region of the county to review and
respond to the new maps.
Gulf County has already
agreed to the upland .portion of
these FEMA maps, but the coastal
lands have been an ongoing issue
of dispute for nearly three years.
Primarily that concern revolves
around discrepancies on flood
probability values applied to prop-
erty at the cape. FEMA's first pro-
posed flood maps (Feb. 10, 1999)
took approximately one half of
what' was C-zone property and
reclassified it to "A" or "V" zone, a
much higher probability rating.
Since that time the Gulf
County Coastal Development
Association was established,
along with aid from the county,
and through their combined
efforts, approximately 50 to 60
percent of that property has been
changed back to a more favorable
rating.
The old FEMA flood insurance
ratings were V zone (highest risk),
A zone, B zone, and C zone (lowest
risk). New ratings combined the B
and C zones into a new "X" zone

WRITTE IBY One Stewed Chicken!
I ILI AMSY EDITOR, \


They're Talking Taxes, So We


Better Keep Both Eyes on 'Em

Most citizens of the State of Florida probably ought to be
getting a queasy feeling in the pit of their stomachs as state
lawmakers begin considering revamping the state's taxing sys-
tems.
Whoa, Willie!!!
Let's don't jump the gun here .Let's exercise a little
patience, these short termed budget woes shouldn't constitute
the kind of hysteria we seem to be stirring up. Most of you
probably already know that the bulk of our tax. revenues are
derived from a 6% sales tax. Even more importantly, Florida is
the tourist capital of the world.
Add those two ingredients together, and guess who pays a
major portion of our tax bill.
After September 11th, the tourist business in Florida, and
across the world for that matter, came to a screeching halt and
so did a significant portion of state tax receipts. This will pass
and things will return back to normal, so why do we want to:
consider totally revamping things?
One of the plans published over the weekend calls for
reducing sales tax from 6% to 4.50%o and adding new taxes to
services. Things like attorneys' fees, freight transportation,
ATM fees,- accountants, architects, engineers, dry cleaning,
barbers, beauty shops, pest control, charter fishing boats,
travel agents, and, of course, newspaper and magazine sub-
scriptions. .
Statistics don't lie; Florida is one of the top visitor destina-
tions in the world. Those statistics are. not likely to change
much over the next several years, and if they do, it will likely
be to increase rather than decrease.
I hope our legislators understand that most of us taxpay-
ing/voting residents would rather them spend time figuring
out how to plan and prepare for the rare occasions when sales
tax figures slump, than trying to derail our gravy train.


"American Taliban"...


It's An Oxymoron

My wife sometimes gets on to me when she checks behind
me and proofs these little blurbs every week. Seems she thinks
I sometimes come ,over a little too "rednecky" or "countrified"
and also, on rare occasions, too conservative.
'Here I was reading one of the daily papers the other day
and out of the clear blue. a perfect title for a column popped
into my head-"American Taliban"-ain't no such thing. Shoot,
what a great title, I -said to myself proudly as I, without think-
ing, turned to my wife, Shirley, and said listen to this.
Needless to say, I felt the title stood alone and pretty much
told the whole story, Which would make my job very easy. Well,
wife Shirley didn't see it as clearly as I did, so I had to re-think
the head or she would burn the toast again.
After spending several moments thinking about John Walk-
er Lindh and the images of him after he was captured fighting
with Taliban. soldiers in Afghanistan, it was real hard for me to
picture him as an American.
I was listening to a tape of the comedian T. "Bubba" Bectal
(Prez. of Be, Bubba) a few weeks ago and he was speaking
about some of the oxymorons that we "Americans." especially
southerners, use regularly .
I would like to publicly thank my scholarly friend "Bubba"
for helping me come up with a more "learned" way to express
myself on this subject.


"That's 0. K.," I held up a hand
and stopped her in mid-sentence,
"I can find it."
Cathy was going on and '6n-
with these elaborate instructions
as to where and how and on 'what


aisle and what it was next to and
what color the label was .
It couldn't be that complicat-
ed! Not even for a guy vho doesn't
do much grocery shopping. Two
cans of Chicken Broth. That's
about a simple a task as you could
ask for! Now, if she was sending
me to pick 'up a fresh head of let-
tuce or to pick out the least dam-
aged Brussel sprout tips or the
leanest pack of ground chuck, I'd
be in a heap of trouble!
But two cans of Chicken


Broth? Piece of cake! I was just
wondering who in the family was
sick ....
Cathy was yelling that I would
find it close to the soup depart-
ment as I went out of sight. She
was acting like I was a ten year
old. I don t reckon that 1 have ever
actually purchased any Chicken
Broth, 'but if it swishes,, swills,
'comes in a can, and'has to be
eaten with a spoon-Campbell's
makes it.
I know the store is fairly new,.


but if I can just find the aisle with
all the canned stuff. I will be all
right. I was tempted to ask that
lady at the first check-out place for
the Campb'Ts department. but I
figured I didn't want to come
across as a complete idiot .
besides it couldn't take more than
a minute or two of exploration to
find it myself.
The store seemed to .be grow-
-ing as I wandered around a bit. I
don't think they refrigerate the
canned goods. I moved toward the
bread aisle. Seems to me. the soup
is always close to the bread. I won-
dered if that Roman Meal bread is,
really more healthy. And did it
come all the way from Rome? And
did those old soldiers grind' the
wheat up. as they marched down
the Appian Way?
A lady came by carting several
cans of Campbell's Chunky
Homestyle Classics Vegetable Beef.
She must have a starting NFL run-
ning back living at her house I fol-
lowed her for an aisle, and a, half
before the light bulb came qn. I
didn't need to know where she was
going! I turned and tried to retrace
her path. She had already been to
the soup place!.
I guess I should have asked
her.
I paused at the shelf with- all
the potato chips. You know,'7:the
baked Tostitos with Salsa and
Cheese looked, pretty good. And
the Lays Sour Cream and Onion' is
kinda a staple. I'd just as, soon
have chips and dip as Chicken
Broth!
My sense of duty pushed me
onward. Besides, this was becom-
ing a contest now!
Hallelujah! I found the' soup
display! I knew I could do-it! Let
me get my broth and get the heck
out of here...
I found the Chicken Noodle
soup right off. And the Chicken
and Rice. And the* Cream of
Chicken. And the Chicken and
Stars. And the Qhicken Vegetable
Pasta. And the Chicken wi t h White
and Wild Rice. And the CQ i.ed
Chicken: withS ndned Tomantbes
and Mushrooms. And the Herb
Chicken with Rice. And the Lemon
Chicken with Herb Rice .... Just
out of curiosity, I. got to looking for
a Sundried Chicken with Lemon
Mushrooms and Herbal Noodles.
Campbell's makes everything else!
Except, apparently, Chicken
Broth. What am I doing here? I
don't even know what, part of a
chicken the broth is .
The Chunky Homestyle
Classics lady rolled back by. I
think she-was pondering the two
for a dollar deal. I was sorely
tempted to ask if she could direct
me to /the Campbell's. Honey
Grilled Possum Road, Kill Sauteed
in Herb Grass!
I picked up a can of Roasted
Chicken with Rotini and Penne
Pasta. That didn't sound like soup
to me-it was more like something
you would order at the Olive

Relishing in the Words of a Rare Plain-Spoken Man


TOM BROKAW presented a
glifnpse of the real "West Wing"
last Wednesday night, just before
the fictional "West Wing" was
aired. The "West Wing" is my all-
time favorite TV show-less the
gaggle of commercials-which
take up most of the time.
Tom, and the President, did
a good job of presenting the Pres-
ident as a plain-spoken man,
who says what he means and
means what he says. No pussy-
footing around for him! If he
comes out with the expletive,
"Over my dead body!" that's
what he means!
It's refreshing to have the
lead politician in the land to be
plain spoken and not speak in
double-talk like Tom
Daschle!
The President-as a result of
his plain spoken characteristic-
has one of the highest approval
ratings ever piled up by a presi-
dent.
Even the Democrats like him!


ETAOIN SHRDLU


Written by Wesley Ramsey


TOM BROKAW IS pretty
plain-spoken, himself. -
In his book, 'The Greatest
Generation, he goes to great,
lengths to point out that this
,quality of folks stood the nation
in very good stead when it was
needed for the nation to continue
to exist.
His book is a compilation of a
series of telling about ordinary
peoples' lives, starting in the
great depression of the '30s and
telling how they kept on working,
through unbelievable hardship
and deprivation, pulling them-
selves up by the boot straps, so
to speak, until they made some-


thing of themselves, despite cQn-
ditions.
Brokaw, himself, 'began life
in the austere and extremes in
cold and poverty in South Dako-
ta. He lived in a small house
without plumbing or electricity.
,Did you. ever have to live in a
dwelling without plumbing. or
electricity? Especially where' it
snows and freezes for months
during the winter season.
It's tough!
That path between the
dwelling house and the outhouse
seemns to. grow longer and "longer
as the snow grows deeper and
the temperature grows succes-


sively colder.

I ESPECIALLY remember the
three page story of winter Art
Buchwald's life story. Art wasn't
always an entertaining and suc-
cessful wrTiter He started out life
in an orphanage at a very early
age. He employed the services, of
a drunk on the streets to forge
his unknown father's signature
so he could join the Marines dur-
ing the "Big War."
When Tom started interview-
ing Buchwald, he asked him the
question he asked all of his inter-
viewees, "Don't you consider
your generation the greatest?"
Buchwald just shot right back
with, "No, I think the present.
generation just as great. The
only thing is, they lack a Great
Depression and a World War to
hone their greatness on!",
Maybe Buchwald is correct!
Let's pray he is never proven
wrong or right!,
One of Brokaw's stories tells


the tale of a woman I'll take to be
sort of gangly,. awkward, and a
mite on the homely side. She also
grew up, after being orphaned at
an early age, in the Masonic
Home orphanage. She never saw
,even a. newspaper until she
reached 18 years of age.
She decided, after her life in
an orphanage, 'that she would
earn a living for herself as a
nurse. Then World War II came
along and she entered the nurs-
es corps and went through the
entire war, treating the wounded.
She ended up as the first
lady of Wisconsin. She married
the man, who was to become
governor, when the fighting
ended.

ANOTHER FEATURE OF
Brokaw's book, was the longevity
of the marriages which followed
the war, -between these same
couples.
They didn't end in divorce,
the couples didn't just live


together and it was a disgrace for
them to have given birth out of
wedlock.
How things change!
The divorce rate today is 50%
of the marriages and I defy you ;t
pick up the daily newspaper and
read the names of those giving
birth. There as many babies
being born to single mothers as
there are to married mothers. ,
Tom Brokaw's book does give
us some good news about this
generation of babies being born
without fathers and couples liv-
ing together sans marriage vows.
Many of his examples he
uses in his book. spent their
lives, forced into living in these
same circumstances because 'of
the great depression and the
great war. They persevered and
made something of themselves
despite the circumstances under
which they fed themselves,
clothed themselves and struggled
to educate themselves No wel-
fare to fall back on.

I had been through every can
of Campbell's soup in the store; I
had been through every can of
soup the Campbell folks had every
made!
And I was mad at Cathy! She
should have been more specific.
She sent me off without any expla-
nation. She knows I don't know
anything about soup. I don't even
Jike soupl And after today .. if I
could get my hands on that
-Campbell guy,! I'd mushroom his
lemon rotini!
I took a deep breath and start-
ed over. I was looking behind the
first cans on the shelf. Sometimes
they get mixed around and the
Chicken Broth could have gotten
pushed to the back.
I looked at my watch. People
have had babies in less time than I
have been in this store! I was pon-
dering on the possibility of buying
the Cream of Chicken and pouring,
.out the. chicken 'when Miss
Chunky Classic interrupted. "Sir,
could I help you find something?"
"No ma'am. I'm just looking."
She turned to leave. "Ma'am,
uh-uh," I could feel my neck turn-
ing red. It was like admitting
defeat. "Chicken Broth." I finally
managed to whisper.
She moved down just past the.
Campbell's stack, reached up and
handed 'me a can of Swanson's
Chicken Broth. SWANSON'S! No
wonder! I'd never heard of them.
-Cathy didn't tell me! I mumbled
thanks, got me a second can and
headed for the check-out counter.
They had changed 'shifts twice
since I came in. It was dark out-
side.
I was holding the door for the
elderly couple when the lady
asked, "Sir, do you know where the
pickles are?"
"Go all the way down to the
apples and bananas and take a

ond shelf on the left. And if, you.
need bread, third aisle on right.
!May I suggest the Roman Meal.
And the milk is all the way. over on

Property Owners' Appeals
Ignored
Ron Morrow, president of the
' Costal Association, said, "What's
most disturbing about this cur-
rent proposal is that, property
owners' appeals of flood maps are
being'ignored by FEMA."
Morrow shared a letter from
FEMA Regional Director Kenneth
Burris, Jr. to Senator Bob
Graham in which he states, "In
Regard to FEMA's consideration of
protests during the mandatory
90-day appeal period, please note
that none of the correspondence
received were official appeals of
the flood elevations and were, .
therefore, more properly identified
"as protests and comments. ;;
Of the 252 appeals and
protests filed and sent to FEMA,
the overwhelming, majority were
issued as' appeals,'- not protests..
This is important because appeals
must be addressed by FENlA. One
of the criteria for filing a protest is
to produce scientific or technical
data : supporting the property
owner's claim. Most property own-
ers. had paid for site elevations
and. various other related efforts
to show their. land should not
have been reclassified at a higher
,risk level.'
One of the items that has
property owners most upset is
that FEMA is,requiring them to go
through a host of hoops and hur-
dles to disprove its claim of high-
er flood probability risk when they
used even less data to to establish
the new flood insurance zones in
the first place.
Senator Graham's adminis-
trative assistant, Jim Baxley, was
contacted and this matter was
discussed with him. Baxley did
not have adequate time before The
Star's press deadline to respond,
but is expected to have some fol-
low up information for next weeks'
edition.
Butler said he expects it to
take approximately eight months
from the January 11th date when
maps were received, before the
maps and insurance rate struc-
ture would take place, barring
some change.
These new flood insurance
maps will be used as part of the
criteria for setting flood insurance
rates. In the case of Cape resi-
dents, who are listed under the
CBRA (Coastal Barrier Resource
Act), property oerty ners cannot pur-
chase government-backed flood
insurance. This would make it
very expensive tq purchase flood
insurance protection for property
located in the probability zones
("V" and "A"). It would also create
other related problems for proper-
ty owners.
The Coastal Committee is
planning to make every effort to
have the CBRA designation
removed from much or all of the
Cape as they continue to address
these issues.


During their first meeting of

Party Chairman Gary Ross made

To Speak at Lincoln Day Event


and should appear in next week's
Star.
The meeting was held at
Butler's Restaurant on January
21st. Chairman Ross reviewed
one of the most successful years
ever for the Gulf County
Republican Party. He pointed out
large increases in membership,
strong financial support and
excellent success in getting Gulf
County residents appointed to
statewide boards and commis-
sions as indicators of the growth,'
and strength of the local party.
Successful visits by state
Republican Party officials, includ-
ing the Chairman of the Florida
Republican Party, Al Cardenas,
highlighted a strong speakers pro-
gram. In addition, the "Committee
of 100", which supports the local
Party financially, was very suc-
cessfully launched as was the first
Republican Women's Club in the
county. "The visibility and growth
of the Republican Party in Gulf
County last year was terrific!" said
Ross.
Chairman Ross laid out sev-
eral goals' for this year., Number
one is the re-election of Gov. Jeb
Bush. "Increasing Republican
voter registration and expanding
the Republican base of stipport
will also be a top priority," said
Ross. The party will continue to
seek and support Republican can-
didates for local office. In addi-
tion, the party will try and bring
candidates for state-wide office to
Port St. Joe.as future speakers to
allow local residents to see and
hear these people for themselves.
The Party will persist in its
opposition to further property tax
-increases and to promote equi-
table resolution of the redistrict-
ing-prisoner, issue. The Party will
continue to support those public
policies that protect and improve
the unique quality of life that is
special to Gulf County.
John Hendry from the St. Joe
Company was the evening's fea-
tured speaker. Using charts and
drawings, he reviewed the plans
by his company for development
in the area. Numerous questions
from the audience indicated the
high degree of interest that these
projects.have in the community.
A special "Karaoke Tribute to '
the President" led by Jim Lloyd
completed the evening.

Chris Pate Competes


On Combat Missions


Chris Pate, son of Bobby and
. Gerry Pate of Port St. Joe, recently
competed on a new reality televi-
sion series called Combat
Missions, which aired this week as '
part of the USA Network's Action
Wednesday. '
.St. Chris Pate of the Panama
City Special Investigations Unit,
was selected from thousands of
law enforcement and non-active
duty military applicants. The cre-'
ators of Survivot are putting those
chosen in simulated combat.
XUnifortulnately, Pate was elim-
inated in the second episode of
the show when his team, the


Alpha Squad, was defeated in a.
high-tech game of capture-the-
flag meets laser tag. The setting
'was the middle of the Mojave
Desert. .
Pate was one of five men on
his six-man squad who were
"killed" when the Shadow Squad
ambushed them only seconds
after they completed a mock mis-,
sion of destroying an enemy tank.
"I feel like I was out of my ele-
ment," Pate said during an inter-
view on the show. "All my
experience is with the.police force.
We don't fly around in too many
Hueys or take on many terrorists.

PSJ Middle School Hears



About "The Game of Life"


. Last Thursday morning, Port
-St. Joe middle schoolers had the
opportunity to hear a different
kind of program than the normal
classroom activities usually in
store for them.
Dr. David Langston brought
the 'statewide program, "The
Game of Life" to the hardwood
floors of Port St. Joe High School's
gymnasium as guest speakers
shared with students the "equip-
ment" needs that had to be in
place for them to be successful at
their game.
Dennis Webber, Director of
Alternative Education at Levy
County Schools, was the keynote
speaker and he used a few of the
letters from the word "volunteers"
to paint a visual road map of
qualities needed to succeed.
He started with the word
"vision," using Michael Jordan as
an example, saying he closes his
eyes and actually visualizes each
game-before it is ever played. But,
the vision goes beyond that men-
tal image-"I challenge you to
stand up and do something with
the vision in your heart."
He described people with true
vision as those who will make a
way for things to happen, because
they want something out of life.
Opportunities-"Look for


them ... you make them if they
don't come your way," said

With a sense of urgency in his
voice, he suggested to students,
"Now is your opportunity."

vout Christian, told students that


Dr. Langston is a 1969 graduate of Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High School.


he and his wife start each and
every day with a simple, but
heartfelt, prayer for their chil-
dren, "God help our children to be
leaders and not followers."
He shared the story of Jim

South America known to be can-

nibals. Elliott was killed by the
tribe, but writings, in his journal
showed the type of leadership
qualities he had. Elliott wrote, "A
man is no fool to give up what he
can't keep to gain what he can
never lose."
Sacrifice-"If you have no
heart, you have no future,"
Webber said.
He went on -to use as an
example the passengers aboard
Flight #93 and the sacrifice they
made pon September ,11th when
they realized the plans that
hijackers had for the lane they

ticing dentistry in Port St. Joe bfor
thirteen years, wants to let every-
one know that his entire staff
insisted that they work) this
Valentine's Day without pay. "M
staff is my greatest asset, And I,
can't tell you how proud I am of
them for organizing and putting
this benefit together," May stated.
Dr. May wants everyone to
know that no one will be refused
treatment, but he hopes that the
truly needy will be allowed first
access to his care. Patients must
be at least 12 year of age to be
seen, and accompanied by a par-
ent or guardian if under the age of
18.
No appointments will be
made, patients will be given a time
for their treatment on a first
come, first served basis
Valentine's morning beginning at
8:30 a.m., and as much treatment
will be accomplished as time
allows. 'This will not be compre-
hensive care," says Dr. May,,
"rather, we will attempt to satisfy
patients' immediate needs in the
time we -have available."
Treatment will include cleaning,
x-rays, fillings, extractions, diag-
nostics, and pain control.
Dr. May hopes to make
Dentists with a Heart an annual

love to see Dentists with a Heart

On the north end :of the
county they had three winners:
.Chase Duckworth-11, and Brad
Udell-12, in the boys' division,
and Mary Taunton-12, in the girls'
division.
Best scores of 15 consecutive
-throws gave each entrant a
chance to be proud to represent
their respective schools in Bay
County. Seven youth were chosen
to go to the district competition
the very next day and we were
very pleased with their perfor-
mances as the number of consec-
utive throws was increased to 25.

Matthew Gannon managed to get

this event possible and to the
youth Who came out. K of C
Council #11572 has now com-
pleted sLx year of promoting this

Flossing is the only way to
remove bacterial plaque from
between your teeth-an -area
where brushes do, no good at all.
Remember, plaque is. the -basic
cause "of both tooth decay and
gum disease. Here are some
helpful hints to make'flossing
more effective and quicker.
Use 18 to 24 inches of floss
and wind most of it around the

fingers to place the' floss
between the teeth. Insert it with a
gentle, sawing motion. When the
floss reaches the,gumline, curve
itVaround one tooth and use an
up-and-down scraping motion to
- remove the plaque. Without
removing. -the floss, curve it
around the adjacent tooth ,and
scrape it, too., Repeat this
between your other teeth, using
a fresh area of the floss.,
Here's a household tip: den-
tal floss is handy for sewing on
coat buttons so they won't come
off for years. It's much stronger
than regular thread. If you doubt
me, try to break a length of floss
by hand!

Enterprise Zone In



Gulf Has Expanded


A recent change in
Enterprise Zone sizes has net-
ted Gulf County approximately
a three. fold increase in the
square miles of available zoned
area.
When Enterprise Zones
were first established in Gulf
County there were only three.
square miles tentatively
allowed. .That amount was later
expanded to five square miles,
and most recently, changes are
now allowing up to 20- square
miles of designated Enterprise
Zone.
Gulf County Chief Admini-


strator Don Butler recently dis-
cussed the changes with. Gulf
commissioners who agreed to a
request to petition. OTTED
-(Office of Tourism, Trade, and
Economic Development) for an
expansion to Gulfs; current
boundaries.
Butler received a letter from
Pamella Dana, Director of
OTTED, dated' January 26,
2002 informing him that the
request has been approved.
As of January 1, 2002,'
Gulfs Enterprise Zone area was
expanded from five square miles
to 18.97 square miles, as


requested. This is good news for
new or expanding businesses in
the county, as they find them-
selves .eligible for the financial
incentives offered by the state
in the Enterprise Zone program.
The biggest additions to
zones have occurred in the Port
St. Joe and \Vewahitchka areas.
The most dramatic, though not
the largest, is in Wewahitchka.
Prior to the changes, only 15
acres located south of Wewa at
the Gulf County Jndustrial Park
site were in the "zone." That
area is now expanded to include
five square .miles running
throughout the business area of -
the community, and along
major roadways.
The largest single land area
increase is an area north of Port
St. Joe to White City, and west
to the Gulf County'Canal.' This,
area also covers road frontage
and takes in what has long been
commonly called Industrial
Road," which runs from Arizona
Chemical to Highway 77, south
of White .City. It also reaches
east across the fresh water
canal. Areas east of Port St. Joe
have also.been expanded. espe-
cially along the Highway 98 cor-,1
ridor.
Approximately 1 /10 of an.
acre at Costin Airstrip is also
included.
Butler noted that there is a
one square mile area available
for Enterprise Zone that has not
been dedicated to any site with-
in the county. This is being held
for; future consideration should
an area be needed for economic
development that is -not within
the zone. The county has the
option to seek approval from
OTTED to. expand the zone to
include that area.
Tax incentives are offered to
'all types of businesses located
within the Enterprise Zone
.which employ residents. reha-
bilitate real property or pur-
chase business equipment to be
used in the zone. Tax credits are
available to businesses who pay
either the Florida Corporate
Income Tax or the Florida Sales
and Use Tax. Sales tax refunds


and sales tax exemptions are
available if eligible purchases
are made.
A copy of the Enterprise


Zone location map and incen-
tives forms can be acquired
from the Gulf County Chamber
ol Commerce at (850) 227-1223


or, the Gulf County Economic
Development Committee at 229-

Manor Wins Dreamer and Doer Award watercolor Art
WorkshonS in Feh_


We are proud to announce
that Geoffrey Manor, a sixth grade
student at Wewahitchka Elemen-
tary School, is the winner of-the
2002 Walt Disney Dreamers and
Doers Award. Geoffrey is an excel-
lent choice for this prestigious
award because he exemplifies the
four Cs: curiosity, confidence,
courage and constancy.
At school Geoffrey is the
model student. You can always
count ,on Geoffrey being on the
straight "A"-list. He excels in all
subjects. When asking his teach-
ers to describe Geoffrey, "perfect
student" was the most recurring
statement. Recently his curiosity
'and constancy helped him to win
'overall for his Science Fair pro-
ject. Not only did he have an out-
standing display, but the report
was superior as well. Geoffrey is
an 'integral member of the
Odyssey of the Mind team. -His
creativity and critical' thinking
skills are certain to bring the
team to victory. ,
Geoffrey participates in sever-


al out-ol-school activities. Among
his favorites is the Boy Scouts of
America. He is very proud of the
fact that he had the only tent that
wasn't flooded with water during


his recent camping experience
with the scouts. Being creative, he
added extra plastic to his floor
and a rain fly to the roof when
weather reports predicted rain.
Instead of rain, a flash flood came
and Geoffrey's persistence paid
off, a dry tent. Geoffrey also faith-
fully attends .church and Sunday
School and is active in the youth
group. This well-rounded student
also excels in music. He. is in his
third year of piano., Village Dance
is his current challenge. Reading
mysteries and science, fiction keep
Geoffrey busy. He enjoys the
Hardy Boys series. He reads sev-
eral books each month.
Classmates describe Geoffrey
as a "Peace Builder". He is kind
and considerate, never leaving
anyone out. When questioned
about who his best friend was .he
responded, "I have so'many, do
you want me to name them all?"
Friends look up to Geoffrey, he is
an outstanding role model.
Geoffrey: has the courage to
always follow directions,; never

Idea #4 .from the list of "18
Ideas for Becoming a. Master
Student" is as follows: Become a
.questioner. Engage yourself in
lectures and discussions by ask-
ing questions. If you don't have
questions, you will probably not
discover what you do and do riot
know. From another angle, asking
questions helps to keep the stu-
dent on track; and shows the
teacher that you are paying atten-
tion. Irrelevant questions can do
just the opposite: thus,-a chance
to, make an impression slips on
by.
The Gold. Card party took
place on the 23rd. We thank, the
NHS for miakring this a :orthwhile

Woody ornamentals, like all
other plant.. need a variety, of
nutrients for healthy,. normal
growth. Some of these elements.
come in the fertilizer you buy.
Some may be in the soil around
your home. But, how can yputell
if a plant is. getting the proper
food? If any of the elements are
missing. you'll start seeing defi-
ciency symptoms.
Landscape plants simply
can't look their best without a bal-
anced diet of essential nutrients.
In case ol severe or prolonged
deficiencies, they may even die.


Spar- Most of our regular fertilizers con-
and tain nitrogen, phosphorous 'and
leter- potassium-major elements plants

learn -that plants also need var'y-
will ing amounts of minor elements:
.tars' magnesium., calcium, sullfui.
fol- manganese iron. zinc molybde-
sion. num. chlorine and boron.
,ie a Most of the nutrient defi-
ior. a ciency problems we have with
nd a wood ornamentals in Flonda
landscape are due. at least partly.
to the poor quality of our soil.
Throughout most of our state. the
soil is sandy and slightly acid,
although we do have alkaline,
sands in some areas...especially
along the coast. Because of the
large amount of sand. important

through the soil very quickly and.,
carries plant nutrients with it.

root zone of your plants. so do
some of the soil elements your
Plants depend on for proper nutn-
tion.
Florida's soil chemistry is
.U another problem. Often essential,
S elements in soil are tied up in,
chemical combinations that make
Them unavailable to plants. And
S higti levels of one element make it
hard foil plants to utilize another.
S Landscape plants need proper
amountss of various nut-neriLs for
healthy? growth. But. if a plant

to determine which element is in
short supply.
However, you usually can tell
that something is causing a nutri-
tional deficiency by looking for a
few easily recognizable symptoms:
the yellowing of leaves we just
mentioned; a plant's failure, to
grow vigorously, even when it has
plenty of light and water; sparse
foliage. and a lot of dead wood oh
the pint.
'Ahese are all general indica-
tions of some nutrient deficiency.
If such symptoms appear on
woody ornamentals in your land-
scape. follow standard fertilizer
recommendations and see if the
condition doesn't improve. If not,
you should seek expert advice as
soon as possible advice available
at. your garden center, or county
extension office.

TITANIC Arrives
In 1912, it left England bound
for America and history. Finally,
on February 21, 2002 TITANIC -
The Musical arrives in Panama
City, Florida.
TITANIC The Musical, is the
depiction of the century's most
legendary tale of romance, adven-
ture, greed and ambition told live
on stage. TITANIC is a joyous,
breathtaking, and often heart-
breaking Broadway musical that
dramatically captures the series
of events that occurred during the
ship's historic voyage. Book your
passage today for Thursday,
February 21 for this masterpiece
that swept the 1997 Tony Awards
for Best Book, Best Score, Best
Sets, and Best Musical of the
Year. Sail on, TITANIC the ship
of dreams.
The book for TITANIC was
written by Academy Award and
Tony Award winner, Peter Stone
(1776, Woman of the Year, The
Will Rogers Follies, My One and
Only), with music and lyrics.by
Tony Award winner Maury Yeston
(Nine, Grand Hotel). Previously,
the duo had collaborated on .the
award winning Grand Hotel.
During that time they discovered
they had each' been harboring
magnificent dreams of turning the
enduring myth of the Titanic into
a musical drama. Eighty-five
years after the. historic voyage,
they began the process that ultJ-
mately birthed a significant addi-
tion to the musical theater
repertoire:
Charles Spencer, The London
Daily Telegraph raved over the
production in New York, 'Eighty-


Con Brio in Concert

in Panama City
five years ago the Titanic left
Southampton on her maiden voy-
age to New York. Now, at last, she
has arrived at her intended desti-
nation, as the star of a new musi-
cal. The idea of a tune-and-toe
show about this great maritime
disaster seems preposterous. And
against all odds, Titanic works.
This is one of those rare musicals
that achieve tragic dignity. You
leave this huge, ambitious pro-
duction feeling something
approaching awe."

Your Portfolio
Is About You
Andy Wilkinson
Financial Advisor
The start of a new year is an
excellent time for investors to take
a closer look at their portfolios. By
reviewing your investment pro-
gram at the beginning of each
year, you'll be able to measure
how well your portfolio strategy is
meeting your financial objectives.
But before you start, remember
the key word is YOU.
For the best evaluation you
should be looking at your situa-
tion and financial needs, not just
the market. Decisions about your
portfolio don't just reflect individ-
ual stock decisions, they start
with reviewing the risk that's
appropriate for your current
phase of life. In tumultuous mar-
kets like kthe one we've faced
recently, the significance of a bal-
anced portfolio of both equity and
fixed-income investments takes
on added importance. So, if the
past year has upset your financial
picture too much, you know you
need to rebalance according to
your ability to ride out short-term
market crunches.

Review your goals to see if
they have changed from last year.
If you have passed some impor-
tant milestones, you may. need to
update your investment strategy..
Now that your. priorities are
set, it's time to look at numbers.
In order to properly review your
portfolio, gather your account
statements showing: your portfo-
lio composition and value at the
beginning of the previous year;
any withdrawals or deposits,
including dividends and interest
earned; purchase price of any
investment acquired during the
year; and a complete record of
your portfolio's, composition and
value at the end of the year.

sifted across a variety of asset
classes, such as stocks, bonds
and cash equivalents, may help
you achieve the right balance of
risk and return. However, the
investment mix that meets your
needs today may not be right
years down the road. That's why
it's important to review your port-
folio's asset allocation each year
to make sure it's in line with your
needs and objectives as you move
through different phases of life. .
By the end of January, most
investment firms will have sent
some sort of performance state-
ment that reviews the year. This is
important to your tax advisor, but
can also be valuable for your own,
review. An effective performance
statement will help determine
whether you are on the right track.
to achieving your financial goals
by allowing you to monitor your
portfolio's performance. A year-
end summary that provides the
rate of return after commissions
and fees gives a snapshot of where
you ended up. The current year
should be compared to prior years
to get a better perspective on your
portfolio's performance. This long-
term look is particularly impor-
tant. since it's the basis for your
investment strategy.
Statements should offer a dol-,
lar-weighted measure. This is the
rate of change in an account's
value due to interest and divi-
dends earned and gains (or losses)
in the market value of securities
and certain annuities.

Florida DOH Tests Conclude No Health Effects; More Tests Planned


Over the past. year, the
Florida Department of Health
(DOH) has. been conducting a
series of tests at the Millville (also
known as "Millview") community
in Port St. Joe.
What began as a sampling of
the area by the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection in 1990, while looking
at possible water contamination
from another source, spurred.
concern from local residents of
the community who petitioned for
a health assessment of the area.
Thirty-two soil samples were col-
lected from the community in
June 2001.
That assessment has been
conducted by DOH and they have
scheduled public meetings in
North Port St. Joe to discuss the


outcome of its assessment of soil
and underground water testing in
the community. The meeting will
be Saturday, February 16th, in
the Washington Improvement
Group gymnasium building.'
located at 401 Peters Street in
Port St. Joe. The meeting will be
held twice; once from 1:00 to 3:00
p.m., then from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
The public health investiga-
tion evaluated possible health
effects from chemicals the Flonda

Department of Environmental
Protection, found in soil and
groundwater. The sampling had
looked for arsenic. cadmium,
lead, mercury., and nickel. The
DOH found that of these chemi-
cals, only arsenic was present at
levels above guidelines. However.
the levels of arsenic present stall

Secretary of State Katherine
Harris will speak at the Gulf
County Republican Party Lincoln
Day Dinner on Monday, February.
18th at Butler's Restaurant.
Secretary Harris was thrust
on the national scene during the
2000 presidential election when
she was charged with making
decisions regarding vote counts in
the pivotal state of Florida. She
was viciously and personally
attacked by opponents and
responded with great dignity and
grace under tremendous pres-
sure. "I only followed the law" is
:her reply when asked about the
'most contentious election in
American history. She has,
become a folk hero to many and is
one of the most sought after
speakers in Amenca today. "We
feel very fortunate to. have
Secretary Harris as our first
Lincoln Day speaker." said Ganr
Ross. local Republican County'
Chairman.
Secretary Harris was elected

fall well below the amounts where
health effects would be expected.
The DOH reports that, from the
chemicals tested for, it would.not
expect to see any health effects.
While DOH does not have any
test results to'indicate a health
hazard exists. they have classified
the Millville site as an "indeterrm-
nate public health hazard." DOH
is recommending that additional
testing be conducted at the
community looking for all cherru-
cals associated with paper mill
waste. It also recommends that
Department of Environmental
Protection test irrigation wells in
the community for chemicals
associated with paper mill waste.
The additional soil testing %will
focus on the top three inches of
soil in the subdivision.
According to DOH's report.
during the 1940's and early
1950's. the St. Joe Paper
Company had used tree bark.
boiler ash. "lime gnts." and slag to

Subdivision on top of some of the
filled area.

One could easily sense a tone
of dejection in Gulf County
Economic Development Director
Karen Whaley's voice last week
after she received word that
Gumdrop Books would not be
relocating to Gulf County.
This was especially disappointing
news after Gumdrop had made
Gullf County its number one
choice for relocation and numer-
ous incentives had been placed on
the table to help put together a
lucrative proposal.
As it turns out. Gumdrop's
home state of lissouri had some
cards up its sleeve that had not
been played. Gumdrop has been
considering a new offer from
Nlissouri to stay in their home
town of Bethany. A large retail
building has apparently become
available that will meet the distn-
bution needs of of Gumdrop. A
combination of incentives includ-
ing this building and other lucra-
tive state offers have apparently
proven too attractive for Gumdrop
to turn down.
While disappointed .in the
news. Whaley was most grateful
to those who had contributed to
and had a hand in planning and
putting together an outstanding
economic development package in
a relatively short period' of time.
"This was an unbelievably, good
incentive package," said Whaley.
She will get no argument from
Neil Wade, Vice President-
Economic Development for St. Joe,
Company, on that statement. He
spoke-about the true measure of a
project being able to look back
and say, ". .. we did everything we
could to win."
After reports of some of the
incentives St. Joe offered "outside
the box" in last week's edition of
The Star (including: the compa-.
ny's giant office building located
in Port,St. Joe), there is no doubt
everything that could be done to
win the project was done.
Whaley extended thanks to

Wewa Commission Is Busy


Wewahitchka city commis-
sioners tackled a heavy agenda
during the board's regular meet-
