It looks as though Gulf
County is very close to having a
tenant in its industrial park com-
plex-located south of Wewa-
hitchka. just off Highway 71.
Dunng a special meeting of
the board in January, David
Taunton discussed a proposal he
had made to lease/purchase the
12.000 square foot building. It is
located on two acres of the coun-
ty's 15-acre industrial park com-
plex, and the board has been
unsuccessful in locating a tenant
to occupy the building.
Board members opened
requests for proposals to lease or
lease/purchase the site during
their regular meeting Tuesday
evening and Taunton Truss. Inc.
.had submitted the only proposal.
The proposal called for; a
lease/purchase plan based on
montIhly payments of $2,427.24
at a base purchase price of
8307,000 amortized at 5u annual
Motion was made by
Commissioner Billy Traylor to
turn the bid over to County
Adrrumnistrator Don Butler for him
to submit the proposal to EDA for
their approval. EDA awarded a
grant to the county for construc-
tion of the industrial park build-
ing and proposals for lease or
lease/purchase must be approved
by them before the county can
The county has received
guidelines from EDA as to what
they would accept as a proposal
and Taunton Truss; Inc.'s propos-
al does seem to follow those
guidelines, but EDA still must
approve any contract between the
county and a tenant.
During conversations with
David Taunton, he said plans call
for a state-of-the-art wall paneling
plant to'be the main portion of the
business at the site. This would
employ approximately 20 people
per production line.
His business plan would
begin with one production line
with hopes to expand as building
in the area develops over the next
few years. Other building compo-
nents and a limited construc-
tion/contractor supply service is
also included in the plans.

A Big Headline
Will Work Too!!
Every now and them I have a btirning desire to set the type for,
this blurb in a 24-point expanded bold type. This is most definite-
ly one of those weeks.
I was cruising along Monday; organizing articles and events for
this week's paper, and feeling unusually in control for the begin-
ning of another weekly adventure. Gathering article leads and
bringing information together wasgoing so well, I said to myself at
one point. "This is going to bean easy week."
That should have been my siqnr!!
I overheard my daughter -in-law Melissa (Lisa), who was very
much in a motherly way, talking to son Bill-"I've got to hurry or
I'm going to be late for my doctor's appointment.
I never thought twice about those words, after all Lisa was not
due until the first of March' and my week was coming together so
nicely. Even when son Bill came in my office a while later saying,
"Melissa just called and she thinks" baby things are beginning to
happen ... I'm going to run over and catch up with her in case the
doctor is going to take a peek at.the baby." I didn't begin to sus-
pect anything, yet! .
Shoot, everything was going so well on my desk I had begun to
work on a few "non-newspaper" projects, thinking I'd have' no
problem taking care of all of my. ... "Willie, telephone, it's Bill on
Now, what does he want, I said to myself, as I picked up the
"Hey, Dad, we're going over to the hospital for some tests.
Looks like Melissa could be going into the early stages of labor and
the doctor wants to be sure she's not How about picking up
Will and MaKayla (grandkids) and take care of them. We'll call
just as soon as we know something."
The boat has now officially entered the swift slough without a
paddling device. In the back of my mind, I was thinking ahhh,
this is just another test of the mothers-to-be emergency action and
response systems. Things like this happen all the time, then the
little critters change their minds, back up, mothers come home.
and a week later she has the baby when she's scheduled to have
it-on Thursday, after the paper's out.
"This is not a test." Those were not the exact words that Bill
used, but I'm sure you've gotten the picture by now. It was some-
where around 10:00 a.m. Tuesday morning before I was able to
refocus my attention back to the matter at hand and at least.some-
what away from MaLena (no middle name yet) Ramsey-8 pounds
7 ounces; 20 1/2 inches; girl).
Mother, father, and MaLena are doing fine, but if you expected
something thought provoking, deep. revealing, original or pro-
found in this space this week ... all I have to say is ... "Thank
goodness she didn't get her looks from her Paw Paw!",
They Left Much Behind
To Remember Them By
Gulf County lost two of its pioneer citizens over the past sev-
eral days-Otis Stallworth and.then, Captain Carl Raffield.
Now, I really didn't know either man that well. but then again
I knew both men very well. I had the privilege of meeting and
speaking with both icons, on several occasions throughout the
,years, but mriy real knowledge of these men comes not through
those acquaintances, but rather from seeing the fruits of their
Neither man was rich with money, but both wereI overwhelm-
ingly rich with a legacy of love, kindness, and respect.
This community will clearly miss both men. but their memo-
ries will surely live 'on through those lives they have influenced,
helped, taught. loved and shared.

Hazelwood was my first Valentine.
That ,was long about the 'sLxth-
grade. Now, Mary E. Pendleton had
been sending me those Be-Mine-
Forever Cards ever since kinder-'

ously. Man'ry E. sent everyone those
cards. Plus. it was a small school
and we all ate lunch together. I

Cynthia home after school. It was
kinda on my way and I wasn't in
no hurry., and if we kinda hung
around in the yard for a few rrun-
utes Mrs. Hazelwood would near
'bout always imite "us" in for, a
cookie or two!
I figured it was true love.
Cynthia wouldn't eat but one,
cookie. Sometimes she. wouldn't
get through all of it! I, would eat
four of those things. Maybe five-
they were gigantic-and finish off
what Cynthia had left. Mrs.
Hazelwood always served milk or
Kool-Aid to help wash it all down.
And she always insisted that I take
a handful "for the road." I'm telling
you. you find the.nght Valentine
and life is good!
Well, it was good until Buddy
Wiggieton started tagging along.
Then Hugh Gallimore got to walk-
irig with us. And Larry Ridinger
crowded in. I was cut down to two
cookies at the most! But I tell'you
what really galled me-Cynthia
took to regularly passing along
what was left of her cookie to

thin' line between true love and

Most anyone who was associ-

As much as J. T. Simpson

and assistant, Emory C. Cason.

1st grade. 4th grade, alternative
education grades 7 and-8, science

student learns in his or her
unique way" and the goal of-the
teacher is to find that way. She
utilizes a hands-on approach to,
education and encourages other
teachers to find at least one posi-

The jaws of modern humans
are becoming increasingly narrow.
This is believed to be evolutionary.
One reason is that processed food
does not require the grinding that
primitive food did and so requires
fewer teeth. More people are now
born without wisdom teeth.
Unfortunately not all.
The earliest permanent teeth
to erupt take up most-of the space
in' the jaw, while the last to surface
(the wisdom teeth) often find no'
available space, and remain locked
in the jawbone (impacted). these
impacted teeth occasionally cause'
destruction of adjacent teeth,
infection or tumors in the area.
Some impacted teeth can be
left undisturbed, but removal' is
recommended when they are
painful, infected, decayed beyond
repair, when lack of space pre-
vents normal eruption or if there is
associated pain in the head, neck,
or ears. This removal is best done
in the early teens when removal is
less traumatic and healing is quick-

In Concert at
The Rader Family and Ocean
Opry are pleased to' announce the
appearance of Grammy Award
winner and multi-platinum enter-
tainer, Lee Greenwood, as part of
his 2002 tour.
Greenwood's career stands as
a shining example of the Ameri-
can success story. From his hum-
ble beginnings on a farm near,
Sacramento, CA, Lee has taken
his natural talent and achieved
worldwide recognition in 'the
entertainment business with a
career spanning three decades.
Lee began honing his musical
abilities on the saxophone, and a
number of other instruments, at,
age 10. Both of his parents being
musicians, Lee followed their
guidance, and was. quick to
acquire the musical and business
skills necessary for life as an
He formed his first band, the
Moonbeams, while still in junior
high school. By the time he had
graduated high school, Lee, was
already a seasoned performer. His
career became the focal' point in
his life. So much so that he
turned down a music scholarship
to the College of the Pacific, aban-
doned a promising professional
baseball career, and even skipped
his own high school graduation
for a standing e gagement at the
Golden Hotel & Casino (now
Harrahs) in Repo, Nevada.:
For the next several years, Lee
was faced with a series of near
misses. Every time he would ven-
ture out of the Nevada lounge cir-
cuit comfort zone he was met with
disappointment. Finally, in- 1978,
he found the courage to leave
Vegas and welcomed to opportu-
nity to fly to Nashville to write and
record a demo session with the.
help of the Mel Tillis Band.
The results of this' long-shot
opportunity led to his contract
with MCA and his' producer Jerry
Crutchfield, who Lee says "is
absolutely the best producer in
the business". Their first session
together yielded the hit songs IJt
Turns Me Inside Out, Ring ori'Her -
Finger.- Time On-Her .Hands, and--
Ain't No Trick, and introduced this
dynamic new recording artist to
Lee is currently signed with
Curb Records, the premier label
in Nashville. With Crutchfield as
producer, he is working on a five
album deal, the first to be
Having always included a
good dose of country music in his
wide repertoire, Greenwood found'
easy acceptance with country
music audiences who appreciated
his powerful vocals and energetic
shows. His feel for country music,
coupled with his electrifying per-
formances,, quickly established
him as a major artist.
Two years after his debut
album, he was voted the coveted
Country Music Association's Male
Vocalist of the Year. The next year
he won the same award again,
and 'a Grammy for Best Male
Country Vocal Performance, and
in 1984 ACM Male Vocalist of the
Year. His first three albums
achieved gold status, and his
Greatest Hits quickly went plat-
In 198b, a less publicized
facet of his talent was recognized
when the CMA awarded him Song
of the Year horrors for penning
both the words and music to God
Bless the USA.
The staying power of this
dynamic performer throughout
fifteen successful touring years
remains evident in every Lee
Greenwood show. Thirty albums,
numerous TV appearances, and
Hundreds of radio interviews, are
all 'vehicles through which this
tireless performer maintains his
visibility with the public. His
celebrity tours with the USO are.
one of the many high-profile char-
ity .organizations to which this
humanitarian donates his time.
Lee confirms he is "keeping avail-
able for tours with the USO as the
In 1995; Lee decided to take a,
break from his rigorous tour
schedule. He and wile Kim
decided to start a Family, and their
elder son Dalton -was born--in-
April, 1995. In order to-spend
more time at home, Lee elected to
build and perform in his own the-
ater in the Smoky Mountains
The April 1996 opening of the
Lee Greenwood Theater provided
the chance to:,continue perform-.
ing without the rigors of being on
the road constantly. The theater,
was heralded for its state-of-the
art sound and lighting, as well as
one of the most entertaining
shows around. With the help of
dancers, musicians, intricate
staging and numerous costume,
changes, Greenwood captivated
audiences with a variety of musi-
cal styles, from movie themes to
"God Bless the USA".
Lee and Kim's second son,
Parker Reid, came along three .
years later in July 1998. Since he
was not touring,. with the excep-
'tion of a few major appearances.
Lee could focus on his songwriting
-and being a father and husband.
Lee has closed the theater in
Tennessee and. gone' back in the
studio with Crutchfield who leels.
'To work in the studio with Lee
Greenwood is a producer's dream
come true. His compelling vocal
performances set a standard that
inspires us all to stnve for...he's
still got the magic." He still' per-
forms at NASCAR races around-
the country, and tours about 160
venues per year, sometimes.
accompanied by his family. .
Lee presents a performance of
mixed arrangements,. patriotic
numbers and especially his hits :
because "after 20 years you don't
ignore the songs that brought you
to the public's attention." he says.
Lee Greenwood will bring two
shows to the Ocean Opry on
Saturday. February 23, at 3:00
and 8:00 p.m. Call the Opry at

The Great Backyard Bird
Count 2002 will be held February
15-18. It is the fifth annual bird
species count for the Audubon
and Cornell Lab of Ornithology
sponsored by Wild Bird Unlimited.
The results, along with the
Audubon Christmas Bird Count
and the Project Feeder Watch, are
tabulated as to species of birds
and where they are located so that
a continent-wide index can be set
up to assist researchers..in keep-
ing totals on distribution. and
abundance of populations over a
penod of time. Example: There is
a significant correlation in the
population of American robins in
.the area to the amount of snow on
the ground in the winter months.
So, the weather plays a signif-
icance in how far some species
travel in the colder months and
how many species may actually
arrive earlier back to the northern
habitat. It also shows how many
year-round birds arde living in a
habitat in our modern times.
This bird count can be done
by anyone. It is a great way to vol-
unteer your time only 15 min-
utes per day (30 minutes is ideal)
and it can be done individually. in
groups, while you're in your office,
hunting, fishing, whatever it is
that you may be doing! All you
need is a piece of paper and a
pencil to write down the highest
number of each species in that
amount of time. (This: eliminates
the birds being counted more
than once.) Write down where you
were and, the habitat (i.e. salt
water, fresh water, yard, park,.
deciduous woods, rural, subur-
ban, coniferous woods. etc.). Note!
*the'time of day, and keep a sepa-
rate tab for each time you watch..
You may choose to count only one
day or all four days.
After your count on a certain
day, go to' w.wv.birdsource.org
and click on BBBC, go to submitit,
and follow the directions. If you do
not have access to the internet, go
'to the library or ask a friend to log
it m. It is free. no registration
needed. If you do not have access.
