She Talks About "2000"ElectioandNew Directions


Florida's Secretary of State
Katherine Harris made the 1st
Annual Lincoln Day Dinner, a
most memorable occasion mon-
day evening as she visited with
and spoke to local officials, busi-
nessmen, and Republican Party
members in attendance.
Secretary of State Harris,
needless to say, was the center of
national and international atten-
tion 'during the 36-day. recount
period following the "2000" presi-
dential election. During an inter-
view with her prior to the meeting
Secretary Harris told. The, Star,
"never in my wildest dreams or
hopes," did she envision finding
herself embroiled in the elections
scenario.

"Prior to that date, I had
probably not been in two press
conferences in my life," said Sec.
Harris, as she compared the stark
contrast of having a microphone
or television camera in her face
with -every move she made.
Suddenly having law enforce-
ment officers by her side became
commonplace alter receiving all
the notoriety that is associated
with being in the limelight-
including more than one death
threat.
Secretary Harris told those
present of the night she and law
enforcement went to target during
one of her "sleepless" nights to
purchase some Christmas deco-
rations. She was not accustomed

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY
COLUMN
WRITTEN BY
WILLIE RAMSEY, EDITOR




Let's Squeak!!


The Port Authority has gotten the ball rolling on one of our more
pressing economic development needs-the four-laning of Highway
71.
Over the past few weeks and in weeks to come members of the C
port group will be assimilating as much support as possible for this t
project. County and city governments in Gulf County have already I
voted their support and this effort will be expanded to other commu- f
nities who could arid would greatly benefit from the economic fruits of s
this infrastructure expansion. t
/We, as a community,. should support this process 100%. One' of f
the biggest drawbacks-to doing business in this area of Florida is ;
highway access in and out of the area. After sitting in on several eco-
nomic development seminars over the years and seeing several eco-
nomic development gurus outline our list of amenities versus our f
needs-a universal pattern has developed on the needs side of the
list-highway infrastructure. (
One study for this purpose is currently under way. A corridor
study has been funded, dubbed the "Gulf Coast Parkway," which
could one day connect Highway 98 to Highway 231 and ultimately to
Interstate 10. '
This study will hopefully get on the "road" to some much needed .
roadway improvements-but our corridors to the north are equally j
important, and four-laning Highway 71 is another very important t
piece of that puzzle s
Everyone knows that old saying-the squeaky wheel, gets the .
grease. If all goes well it will likely take some time for the state to begin
factoring this need into future budget and planning assessments. So. t
if we don't start squeaking now. the oil can will be on the other side of
the garage when we need it real bad.
Members of the Port Authority are on target with their infrastruc-
ture objectives, and we certainly need to give them our full support on
this effort.

Net Ban or Net Limitation
I have"to admit that I had just about given up on the possibility of
fishermen getting treated fairly under the law.
Wakulla Circuit Judge Sanders Sauls have brought new hope for
fishermen with his ruling that the Pringle-Crum net is'legal under the.
new amendment voted to Florida's constitution in 1995.
Judge Sauls. in talking about the intent of the amendment. said
it was to "limit marine fishing" not "prohibit marine fishing."
Since the passing of the "net limitation" amendment. five rule
makers have taken the amendment and stacked on an additional list
of rules and.regulations that have net fishermen on the brink of.erad- .,-
ication. Thank you. Judge Sauls, for reminding the FWC that voters ..,
dit not pass the amendment to put fishermen out' of busi btbut.
rather to "limit" nets.
Indeed, the amendment does reduce net size to a small fraction of
the previous size nets used. Judge Sauls ruled that the amendment
did what voters ,wanted it to do and FWC's efforts to carry (the amend-
ments interpretation) beyond its intent is unconstitutional and
invalid.
Now, needless to say. the state has already said it plans to appeal
the, judge's ruling, and the case is hopefully on its way to the Supreme
Court of Florida.
When the regulators of the rules are also the ones making rules.
any group that's lined up between them and their objectives is in seri-
ous trouble. That's exactly where fishermen have found themselves.
It is very pleasing to see regulators exposed for their objectives
through the use of Florida's laws by the judge. Hopefully. in days to,
come, his decision will be upheld by Florida's to court.

She Should Have Seen It Coming. ,
Did you catch this headline last week? .. "Future may not be for-
tunate for Miss Cleo"
Miss Cleo claimed to be an all knowing seer ready to give anyone
that calls a "free reading." If Miss Cleo was that good at reading those
Tarot cards, please tell me why she didn't see that the State of Flori-
da was fixin' to bust her. -
Shoot, come to find out, her real name is really Youree Dell Har-
ris-I'd like Miss Cleo better too.

She Didn't "See 'em" Coming!


They caught up with Miss'
Cleo! It appears the head seer of'
the Psychic Readers Network is-
being sued by half-a-dozen states'-
'or not being exactly all she says,
she is. The charges contain allegaa-
ions'of chicanery, shady 'billing.,
alse advertising, miss information
ndi generally representing
things" not exactly as they are.
P. T. Barnum ,is applauding
rom the grave.
The suers say the self-pro-
'laimed clairv'oyant is a sham.
Helloooo!
We didn't need Sherlock
Holmes to figure that one out! I
thought folks understood and tol-
erated the Miss Cleos of the world
ust for the diversion and enter-
ainment value they added to a
sometimes dull and drab land-
scape.
Didn't we learn anything from
he snake oil salesmen that trav-


eled the old west? Did the folks at
the turn of the nineteenth century.
actually believe a sip of Hadacol
would allow them to leap tall
buildings in a single bound'? How
about the offer to purchase ten
acres of valuable land I"you'll
make a fortune") in the heart of the"
Everglades ifn beautiful Southl
Florida? Atre you interested in
some bonafide' blue chip stock in
an :oil well in Oklahoma? How
about some ocean front .property
in West Virginia?
Listen, I'm out over fifty bucks,
including shipping and handling,
for the large, supply of Grapefruit
45 diet pills'. .. and my wife ain't
lost one ounce!,'
In 1958. me and Ricky Hale
paid twenty-five cents apiece to see
a two headed snake. And I'm
telling you, it was so wound up in
that big jar of formaldehyde that.
after studying on it as hard as we
could for over half an hour. we
couldn't tell for sure if that second
head was attached or not! But we
held 'em spellbound the next
Monday dunng recess describing
in great detail how we near 'bout
shook hands with a genuine two
headed snake!
One of the biggest complaints


against Miss Cleo is that the much
ballyhooed 'free" phone call and
.introductory" reading was costing
the suckers five dollars a minute.
Helloooo!
Do you reckon those carnival
gu\s were going to let me have my
quarter back once I stepped inside'
the two headed snake tent? They
didn't seem to even hear me, and
-Ricky complaining .about whether
that head was attached or not!
By the time the folks out west
realized the bottle of. elixir they'd
plopped dov.-n a hard earned dollar
for was two percent alcohol and
ninety-eight percent dirty creek;
water--the snake oil salesman was
half way to Tucson!
Listen. I ordered the Captain
Marvel x-ray glasses. You couldn't
see through nothing with those
things! I was going to send 'em
back until I read the fine print. It
clearly stated that once the box
had been opened they would not
except any returns. 'Course, until
you open the box, you don't know
that the x-ray glasses are nothing
more than dark shaded lenses
with a rubber band attached to it!

The first time I met Miss Cleo
it was at her little crystal ball and


palm reading place out on the Hico
Farm Road. She called herself
Madame Mane back in the early
sixties. I was mostly wo.ndenng if I
was going to make the football
team and did I have any chance of
dating Mary Hadley Hayden.
I took Ricky and Bobby Brewer
' with me because Ruth Annh.Wiley
.had told us Madame Marie some-
times turned the light.off when she
gave a "reading."
Dixie Faye, who I found out
later was Madame Marie's sister,
;,met us at the d6or.. Dixie Faye
worked mornings over at Maxine's
Golden Coiffure Beauty Salon; She
asked us our names and where we
lived and who 'our parents Were
and what our interests were a'nd
stuff like that while we were wajt-
ing for Madame NMane to come
back from a trance or something.
W\e didn't actually see the for-
tuneteller mind you, but Dixie
Faye explained as how Madame
Mane reposed quietly for several
hours a day commnuning with past.
present and fut lre spints .'.'
I was thankf lI Rick and Bobby
were along.

Presidents,:, Taxes, and Babies


* .


. They're All An Unpredictable Lot!


I STARTED TO use as my
subject, this week, the President's'
"State of the Union" addresA and
his categorizing of the "nations of
evil." Iraq, Iran, and North Korea
drew that ignominious distiric-
, tion, and were called by "name.
Naturally, he has caught.
'quite a bit of flack about naming.
the three nations as potential
enemies of our nation.
Well, they are!
Buit, for the' life of me I can't
understand their getting their
shorts all in a wad over it, as they
have been reported as reacting.
Haven't these same nations
supported terrorists who blew up
our embassies?
Aren't these the same nations
who have killed and kidnapped
Our nationals?
Aren't these the same nations
who have habitually* for years,
referred to us .as, "The Great
Satan" every time theyhave had,
the opportunity?

THOUGHT THE STORY
which is told of your Aunt Carol's
birth would be sufficient warning
about your pending birth.
Aunt Carol announced that
she was on the way at noon, on a
Wednesday!
So, what else was I to do?
I had to drop her mother off
at the hospital and go on to get
the paper out, leaving Aunt Carol
to enter the world as best she
could, with the assistance of Dr.
Joe Hendrix and the nurses.
I had to trust them to know
what to do, upon Aunt Carol's
arrival., They did a pretty good
job, but they didn't remove her
trend for being mischievous.
There's no telling how mis-
chievous this new little girl will
be; maybe even more so than her
big brother, Will!
You can never tell with a
Ramsey child that is born during
the first half of the week.


GRANDFATHER WILLIE has
already.told you about the distur-
bance you have caused by your
fortunate activity, and how it pre-
vented him from properly thumb-
ing his suspenders and strutting
around like a peacock; solidly
because you didn't wait until the
last half of the week.
[As if his preening around in
expectation could help.]
But, it's expected of new.
fathers and grandfathers. You
took most of the duty away with
you having that 'baby when' you
wanted.
I suppose we will have to for-
give you this little fiasco. After all,
you were born in California and I
suppose all the unusual activity
isn't out of your system, yet.
Just you remember:, Women
aren't supposed to have babies
when they want to: Women are
supposed to have babies the last
half of the week.. when it's con-
venient!

duPont Foundation Gives $150,000


In Three Papermaking Scholarships


The Alfred I. duPont Founda-
tion has established endowments
totaling $150,000 for three schol-
arships for students majoring in
pulp and paper science or forestry
at North Carolina State
'University's College of Natural
Resources.- Students from
Northwest Florida will be given
first consideration for the scholar-
ships.
The gifts are in honor of the
former St. Joe Paper Co., the late
Jacob C. Belin, who headed St.
Joe for nearly 30 years, and the
late Thomas S. Coldewey, who
was St. Joe's vice president for
operations from the 1960s into
the 1980s.
"Iwas fortunateto have come
up through the ranks under
Messrs. -Belin and Coldewey,
whom I thought of not only as
business associates and mentors
but as friends," said Robert E.


thanks to St. Joe Paper Co.'s
momentous impact on the econ-
omy of Florida's Panhandle,"
Nedley added.
Under the terms of the gift the
scholarships will be offered first to
graduates of Port St., Joe High
School, second to graduates of
Wewahitchka High School or any
future Gulf County high school.
Third consideration will be given
to graduates from 12 northwest
Florida counties where St. Joe
owned large tracts of land. If there
are not enough qualified candi-
dates from those schools the
scholarships will be awarded to
other students by the Dean of NC
State's College of Natural
Resources.
Lesley Grieco, coordinator of
recruiting with NC State
University's Wood and Paper
Science program, is traveling
throughout the Panhandle visiting


Christy Johnson, her mother, Louise Coldewey. and Robert
Nedley are shown with Thomas Coldewey Scholarship plaque.


Nedley, who is president of the
Foundation and: a former presi-
.dent of St. Joe.
S"The duPont Foundation has
ino affiliation with St. Joe Paper
Co. -or its successor, the St. Joe
-'Co.," Nedley continued, "but our
board of directors believes the gift
is highly fitting because Mr. Alfred
I. duPont established St. Joe as
the nucleus for an empire of land
and industry that would have
most of its assets in Northwest
-; Florida. : :
l"o aWhen St. Joe was created in
the late 1930s it quickly changed
the entire economy of the Florida
S- Panhandle, creating' well-paying
industrial jobs in an area that had
no strong financial foundation.
Those jobs enabled area farmlies
to finance college educations for
thousands of young Floridians.
and today Northwest Florida and
the world are blessed by the ser-
vices of doctors, lawyers, educa-
tors and many otherleaders in
society who got their educations


schools and sharing information
about the program and scholar-
ship. She was, in Port St. Joe
Tuesday morning talking with
,Port St. Joe High School adminis-
trative staff.
Grieco Is leaving information
about the program with guidance
counselors in the impacted
schools' and counties. Students
seeking more information should
contact their school's guidance
counselor.
"it's hard to imagine a more
endunng and appropriate way to
memorialize Mr. Belin and Mr,
Coldewey-two early leaders in the
southern paper industry," said
Larry A. Nielsen, dean of the
College of Natural Resources.
"Students and graduates from
this time forward will know both
of them and will be grateful that
their education was made possi-
ble because of the generous gift in
both of their names."
"Mr. Belin and Mr. Coldewey


were active supporters of the
paper science program at NC
State," said Ben Chilton, director
of the Pulp and Paper Foundation,
which raises funding for the uni-
versity's paper science program.
"Many of the engineers who
worked for them attended NC
State, and the paper science pro-
gram specifically," Chilton said.
The Alfred I. duPont Founda-
tion Inc. was established in 1936
by Mrs. Alfred duPont in honor of


her late husband. The Founda-
tion, which is operated exclusively
for charitable and educational
purposes, makes grants primarily
to beneficiaries in the southeast-
ern United States.
Scholarship selection recipi-
ent counties following Port St. Joe
and Wewahitchka High School are
Liberty, Franklin, Calhoun,
Wakulla, Jefferson, Gadsden,
Walton, Taylor, Jackson.
Washington, Leon, and Bay.

The day is finally here-the

Kesley

(From Page 2)
before I was ushered into the
back room.
Madame Marie took my hand
and stared at it for several mini-
utes. "Your name is Kesley. You
live out at the end of Stonewall
Street. Your father is named Leon.
You like baseball and football."
Wow! This lady is good! She
has been right on everything!
She traced a line across my
palm. "You are going to have a long
life."
Well, I was mighty thankful for
that! But, since I was only four-
teen, you wouldn't have to be all
that, clairvoyant to figure I had
pretty good odds of hanging
around for a while. "Miss Marie," I
had laid down hard cash and I
wanted my money's worth, "I need
to know if .1 am going to make the
football team. And listen, I really
need to know- if Mary Hadley
Hayden is going to someday marry
me?"
"Your father is a good man.
You will live-"
"Ma'am, I want to know about
Mary Hadley-"
The lights came up arid Dixie
Faye rushed into the room, "You'll
have to go now. The reading is fin-
ished. Madame Marie has to pre-
pare for her afternoon seance."
I had paid for a few moments
of excitement and adventure, but I
had to "live it out" to find out about
the football team and Mary Hadley.
I have been tempted to call
Miss Cleo since this story broke., I
bet you anything her sister is no
longer working 'at the beauty par-
lor. If she had a' been, Miss Cleo
might of had a clue that something
was about to happen ....
"See" You,


historic restoration project for the
Centennial Building is within.
weeks of getting started.
Stalnaker' Construction
Company was the low bidder and
Port St. Joe city commissioners
awarded phase one of the restora-
tion project of the firm as recom-
mended by Preble-Rish, Inc. engi-
neer Bill Kennedy and members
of the Centennial Building
Committee.
Phase one includes the three
items most needed to make the
building conveniently used as a
community center for the area:
1) replacement of the roof
with a "new" extended warranty
state-of-the-art system;
2) remove existing heating
system and install new
heating/air conditioning and
associated ducting and ventila-
tion systems; and
3) totally replace the electrical
system and upgrade to current
needs.
A $300,000 historic preserva-
tion grant, is being used to fund
the bulk of this expense. The city
has match requirements of
$54,510, some of which will hope-
fully be achieved through in-kind
work. Stalnaker's bid for the pro-
ject totalled $361,196. Kennedy
said some items would be credit-
ed off the bid because of work
done in-kind. Those numbers will
be fine .tuned during the pre-con-
struction meeting between the
contractor, city, and engineers.
Economic Development
Ordinances
Board members adopted an
ordinance amending the city's
comprehensive plan to include an
economic development element.
In addition, the board also
reviewed an ordinance allowing
for ad valorem tax exemption
based on a company meeting cer-
tain criteria in order to be eligible
for exemptions.

Nets

and the notice of appeal will be
filed today," Glogau said.
An appeal would stay Judge
Sauls' decision, meaning the nets
can't be fished without risking
criminal charge since the FWC
contends the Pringle-Crum net is
an illegal gill net.
Crum said that, fishermen
would seek to lift the stay.
Ron Mowrey, attorney for
Pringle and Crum, said he was
pleased with the ruling. "This Is
the first time a court has
addressed these Issues in an in-
depth, analytical manner,"
Mowrey said.
"We hope the FWC and attor-
ney general will acknowledge the
correctness of Judge Sauls' order
and not further waste taxpayers'
money and assets in attempting
to overturn his opinion merely as
a retaliatory action."
What constitutes a gill net is
at the crux of the case-and has
been at the root of controversy
between fishers and the state
since the amendment was imple-
mented in 1995. Judge Sauls
noted in. his ruling that "the defin-
ition of gill and entangling nets in
the constitutional amendment is
flawed and from this stems great
difficulty." .
The judge's order also found
that the state's rule limiting mesh
size was unconstitutional.
The state has contended that
the rule limiting the maximum
mesh size in seine nets. to two.
inches stretch meant that nets
with mesh larger than two inches
are gill nets because they are
intended to gill mullet.
Pringle and Crum had chal-
lenged that rule several years ago,
claiming it was not based on any
scientific' data by the agency and
that such a net would not be com-
mercially feasible for the mullet
fishery. An administrative law
judge and the First District Court
of Appeal rejected the fishermen's
argument.
But Judge Sauls, in an exten-
sively researched order;, found
that the administrative law
judge's determination was flawed
in that it overlooked that the size
of nets had .been reduced from.
1,800 feet long (up .to 36,000
square feet) before the amend-
ment, to only 500 square feet-or
less than two percent of what had
been allowed. Such small nets are
not capable of achieving the huge.
catches of fish that the big nets ',

made and which the amendment
sought to end.
Additionally, the legislative
elimination of monofilament nets
in 1997 limited the effectiveness
of the smaller nets because the
nylon materials now used in nets
are not invisible, and there is a
wall of netting being pulled
towards the fish.
The two-inch mesh rule made
nets commercially unfeasible for
mullet, Judge Sauls noted, and
the administrative law judge failed
to give that finding proper weight,
coming up with, instead, "a spec-
ulative, theoretical, Rube Gold-
berg method of fishing" with two
fishermen using the small mesh
nets and a third fisherman throw-
ing a cast net. This, Judge Sauls
added somewhat wryly, "with the
hope that they might catch
enough'fish to support the fami-
lies of all three fishermen."
The intent of the amendment
was to "limit marine fishing",
Sauls noted at one point, not
"prohibit marine fishing."
The current regulations and
actions by the state are discrimi-
natory, arbitrary and oppressive
in this case, the judge found. And,
in strong language, wrote, "The
sacrifice of fundamental rights
can. never be justified or sane-'
tioned merely to make it more
convenient or easier for the state
to achieve a desired .end. The
exercise of fundamental rights
must be without the fear and
oppression ofarbitrary interpreta- ,
tion and the hobnailed boot."
The judge found that 'the
Pringle-Crum net does not violate
the amendment's prohibition
against gill nets, and may, be law-
fully fished. Sauls also found.
."Rules of the.IFWCI incompatible
with this interpretation...with
respect to the mullet fishery are
hereby declared unconstitutional
and thereby invalid."
Besides the two inch mesh
rule, the other rule stipulates that
mullet can only be caught with a
seine net.
The constitutional amend-
ment outlawed gill nets in state'
waters, and limited other nets,
such as "seines and other rectan-
glhilar nets," to a maximum size of
500 square feet.
Pringle and Crum had sought
a declaratory ruling from the
court on .their net;, which they
claim is neither a gill net nor
seine. but a'rectanEular net". The

Tourism in Mexico


Beach on Rebound


Mexico Beach, along with
most of the nation, felt the hard
economic punch from the tragic
events of September 11, 2001.
Mexico Beach bed tax revenues
for both September and October
2001 experienced significant
declines in comparison to the
same months in the year 2000.
September 2001 revenues were
down 17.32% under September
2000, and October 201 revenues
were down 9.39% under October
2000.
In November, however, the
economic shadows began to lift for
tourism in Mexico Beach. Despite
the loss of twenty motel rooms in
October, November 2001 bed tax
revenues were up 10.21% over the
same month in 2000. While
tourism and travel in most parts
of Florida continued to be flat and
in some cases even down in
December' 2001, Mexico Beach
bed tax revenues for the same
month rallied and surpassed
those of December 2000 by a
strong 28.32%.


When asked why he felt the
increases had occurred in these
months, J. Patrick Howard,
President/CEO of .the Mexico
Beach Community Development
Council, Inc., stated he felt a
number of contributing factors
have prompted the welcomed
rebound. "We have strategically
campaigned for over a year for
winter guests through a small ad
in Travel 50 & .Beyoord, with
hundreds of inquiries generated,
back to our office," reported
Howard.
"These ads, along with slight
increases in rental rates and
rental units (townhomes) are all
corresponding factors' to our win-
ter growth,'" he added. According
to reports from several motels,
campgrounds and rental agen-
cies, February occupancies are
shaping up nicely as well.
To thank the winter guests for
their choice of Mexico Beach as
their vacation destination, the
CDC sponsored a free fish fry on
February 9th.

Gulf Pines Not
Represented
Dear Editor:
I thought your readers should
be aware of a recent decision by,
the Gulf County Board of
Commissioners. On Tuesday,
January 22, the County Commis-
sion reduced the number of mem-
bers on the Gulf County Health
Care Committee to five individu-
als. Interestingly, there are no
'representatives on the committee
in its reformation vwho are affili-
ated -%with Gulf .Pines Hospital.
Perhaps it's just an oversight
on the part. of the County
Commission. I'll give the benefit of
the doubt ...for now. Certainly, I
would hate to; plant a seed in the
minds of your readers that this
might have been intentional.
Conside.tUhis: This cornrmttee in
its recent past structure was to
"assess the current and future
needs of healthcare in Gulf
County." One would assume a
vital portion of information
regarding the' current arid future
needs of healthcare .in Gulf
County would come from .the .
provider whose medical practice is
responsible for most of the
Emergency Medicine in Gulf
County.
Or perhaps a practice, that
provides most of the inpatient'
practice in Gulf County. Or per-
haps input from aI practice that
sees 30 to 50 patients on a daily

Praise for The Star
Dear Editor:
I am a former, resident of Port,
St. Joe. My mother returned to
the area in January 2001 and is
happy to be living in her home-
town. It gives me great pleasure to

town. I visit the area once a year.
Keep up. the .good work in the

basis. By the way, this practice
also takes place at the largest pri-
vate employer in the county, Gulf
Pines Hospital. ..
I hope the citizens of Gulf
County are watching this closely.,
Watch out for individuals with
-self-serving agendas. Of all the
issues on Gulf County's table, this
is one of the most important. -

Now that everyone attends the,

"The Captain" William Clark checks on progress at the North Florida Speedway. Crews are busy building new
scale and inspection buildings. and resurfacing the half-mile dirt track. Season opens March 30.



Track's future starts now...



...Racing starts March 30 at Wewa track
I I"CyW IwatIn I


The Captain leaned against a
window sill 25 feet above the red clay
track .
','Look out here," he said,
, sweeping an arm toward the window.
Pointing outward at a level, cleared five
acres or so. he added. "We can put in a
cart track over there. That old gravel
pit would make a fantastic motocross
track."
Then jumping to the other
side of his tower office. he stepped out
the door and said. "That was a tine mud
bog right there. We could openitback
up. And that area around the pond is
our campground. We've' already got
ducks for it." .
S "The Captain" is Capt. Will-
iam Clark, % ho for 10 years has been
at the helm of not a ship but a race
track just outside Wewahitchka. It's,
been an on-again-off-again relationship
between Clark and the track as it na\ t-
gated through a succession of owners.
"I've been here. I've been
fired. I'le quit." he said of the past de-
cade. But now he is back as track di-
rector for new owner Ben Watson.
Clark thinks this time the
track will prosper, in part because
Watson is an experienced race car
driver from Georgia, and in part be-
cause of sheer determination.
Clark wants the stock car
track.to expand into a venue that w ill
serve more of this area's entertainment
needs.
"There's no reason we can't
bring in, say a Willie Nelson, and put.
him on a stage right here. We've got
the seating' and lots of room," Clark
said.
And, he pointed out, Gulf
County has not had a fair. Why not
here?, he wondered.
Growing'up in Central Indi-
ana, Clark knows what racing c'an be.
After all, he recalls, "I was sneaking
into (the Winchester) track from the
time I was 10." He watched Johnny
Parsons and James McElreath come of
age. He saw the birth ofOutlaw sprints.
He comes from the land of Tony
Stew art and Jeff Gordon.
"When you're bornmin Indiana
they either give you.a basketball or a
steering wheel," Clark says. It looks
like he got the steering wheel.
And while The Captain may
be thinking about a mega race park,
what he's doing is getting ready for

NORTH FLORIDA

MOTR SPEEDWAY


A new sign. A new beginning. So hopes North Florida Speedway track man-
ager William Clark. Clark is spearheading the reshaping of the track for


owner Ben Watson.


another season in the dirt.
The North Florida Motor
Speedway )%ill see its first action of the
2002 season March 30. Until then the
closest the track seems to be getting to
a race car is a bulldozer, dump'trucks
and tractors.
Hundreds of tons of dirt are
being pounded and scraped into place
by dozers and graders..New fences and
guard rails are going up. The staging

area is getting a facelift. Clark expects
a first-rate facility when the "Daytona
of,Dirt" opens the gates'.
Other changes are shaping up
as well. Ticket prices have been low-
ered. For as little as $5 fans can see a
full night of racing. Senior citizens can
get into the track for $5. Regular price
is $10. Beer must be purchased an con-
sumed in the beer garden, keeping other
spectator areas alcohol-free. No cool-
ers will be allowed. And sportsmen will
have a shot at $1,000 opening night in
a 50 lap feature.
Don't expect to seethe Busch'
or Winston Cup cars here. But late
models are another matter. Even
though they won't run every week, the
speedway plans to offer fans a look at'
the late-models during the season.
"If every track ran late mod-
els we might as well all go to Daytona
for racing. We're here to give every-
one a chance to drive a race car that
wants too, and to give all- their aunts
and uncles and cousins and friends the
chance to watch them race," Clark ex-
plained.


The jaws of modern
humans are becoming increas-
ingly narrow. This is believed to
be evolutionary. One reason is
that processed food does not
require the grinding that primi-
tive 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


; That's also the reason he gives
for his support of the 4 cylinder and
mini-stocks. While some complain that
these smaller, slower cars don't put on
the show of the sportsman class. Clark
is a big believer in them. -
"Not everyone cai afford' a
$40,000 engine fora sportsman cat.
But anyone who wants to race can get
in a mini and go. And these are the rac-
ers that bring family that eat our hot
dogs and drink our drinks. And that's
what keeps the track open."
Clark expects; to see as many
as 125 cars and 4,000 fans iii the seats
for the biggest races, but an average
Saturday night brings half that many
cars and fewer fans as well. During the
current owner's dozen races last year
the track averaged 65 cars every Sat-
urday night and hosted 89 for the
Florida state title race. He thinks the
speedway will see 80 to 85 cars a %week
this year.
The weekly program at the
North Florida Motor Speedway will
include those 4 cylinder stock and
mini-stocks, enduro-early model (vin-
tage) sportsman, hobbie stock, super
street and the sportsman class. The
track also features IMCA modifieds.
Races are run every Saturday
night from March 30 through Oct. 26.
The track opens at 5 p.m. for practice
and all races are finished by midnight.
There will be no Thursday night prac-
tices or Friday night races this year.
The track is locatedjust north-
west.of Wewahitchka just off Hwy 22.


Impacted

Wisdom Teeth
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
imn)pacted teeth occasionally
cause destruction of adjacent

area. -
Some impacted teeth can
be left undisturbed, but removal
is recommended when they are

removal is best done in the

Student Chefs Cook Up $500 Pot of Gumbo


There may have been a little
nip to the winds blowing through
Sunset Park Saturday, but folks
found plenty of warmth in gallons


of "chef quality" gumbo being
served.
The Student Chefs
Association from Gulf Coast


Community College took top hon-
ors in a "taste-off" after two of the
13 gumbo contestants had tied
for first, place. Judges had such a
hard time deciding between the
two top pots that each judge had
to eat a whole cup of each to make
their final determination.
Maybe the reason that deci-

sion was so hard was because the
second place winner was no
stranger at the gumbo pot, nor at
the annual Mexico Beach event.
Kim Lewis, who took first
place in the inaugural event four
years ago, was back in the awards
grouping taking the $250 second
place prize money.

Third. place, $100, went to
Clay and Olivia Percle.
The father-daughter duel
between Fred Buskens and his
second place daughter Kim
(Buskens) Lewis continues to
"brew." Prior to the judging when
Kim was asked who was going to
win this year, Fred interrupted
and proclaimed his dominance.
Kim said she had worked her
normal recipe, but added extra
crab meat. Fred, on the other
hand, said he had changed his
recipe for this competition. "I've
gotten a lot more technical with
mine this year," he said. Maybe he
needs to add more crab meat next
year.
" All entrants received a certifi-
cate of appreciation for helping
make this fourth annual event
another scrumptious event.
"Extinguished" judges for the
event included Jon Bullard, chef


instructor of the culinary school
at Gulf Coast Community College;
Paris Janos, community affairs
reporter for WJHG-TV; Gene
Childs, taster extraordinaire; and
Willie Ramsey, editor of The Star
and Panhandle Beacon/ Hook &
Trigger who went home and ate a
few dozen raw oysters to settle his
stomach.
Event chairperson Peggy
Wood extended thanks to every-
one who helped make this year's
event another huge success, espe-
cially the cooks who put their best
pot forward in another heated
competition.
The event was sponsored, by
Special Events of Mexico Beach,
Inc., a, not-for-profit organization
handling special events for Mexico
Beach. All proceeds from the
event will be used to defray costs
of the annual Independence Day
Celebration on July 4th.

Valentines for Vets
In January, Catherine Kennedy, auxiliary member of John C.
Gainous VFW Post # 10069. went to the elementary schools in
Port St. Joe and asked if the students would make valentines for
the veterans. They responded with over 250 valentines, which
were sent to three VA hospitals in Florida-at Gainesville, Lake
City, and St. Petersburg. Shown in the photo above with some of
the homemade valentines are auxiliary members Ginny Seefeldt,
Roz Phinazee, Catherine Kennedy, Franny Green, and Karen
AHanson.

Idea #7 from the list of '18
Ideas for Becoming a Master
Student" is as follows. Think of"
your textbook as the thinking of
the author. Your job is to think
the thinking of the author. For
example, role-play the author fre-
quently. Explain the main points
of the text to another student. as
if you were the author. Such
activities reinforce the .important
facts and provide a good drill for
study. ,
,We had 100% participation in
the FCAT writing test last week!
This means we are off and run-
- ning well in FCAT season. Thanks
to our students who are respofld-
ing to the challenge. And a big
thanks to-our teachers who are
.working especially hard to make
sure our chargers are ready to go.
The next round of tests is set for,'
March, arid they will be foriall-
grades. However, remember that
10Oh graders must pass all' poi-.
tions of the FCAT in order to grad-
Suate!


l for this year's. fair is

additionn to books, there
be posters, novelty items,
rks, stationery, software
er educational products
for purchase. ..

The Gulf County Cooperative
'Extension Service is responsible
for providing six sessions on. gar-
dening topics that would be of
interest to seniors over 50 years of
age. The topic for discussion dur-
ing this class session was shiitake
mushroom production.
Shiitake (she-tah-key) is the
major edible mushroom grown
throughout Asia. In the United
States, shiitake mushrooms are
becoming a familiar sight in orien-
tal food stores and restaurants
and in the exotic food section of
many supermarkets.

produce an excess of $1,000
worth of edible mushrooms over a
period of four years.


For more information on cul-
tivating shiitake mushrooms,
please contact the Gulf County
Cooperative Extension Service at
639-3200 or 229-2909.


Extension Agent Roy Lee Carter discusses different types of
woods used to grow shiitake mushrooms with Laura Moody,
Shirley Rich and Logan Barbee. Carter is teaching the Education
Encore gardening classes.


Actively growing fungal cul-
tures intended for use in mush-
room cultivation and called
"spawn" may be obtained 'from a
variety of reputable firms. Trees
suited for mushroom cultivation
are usually deciduous hardwoods.
In Florida, water oak, southern
red oak, laurel oak and turkey
oak are considered the best hosts.

Real Estate
Answers to Real Estate questions j
from your local Century 21 Agents.

REAL ESTATE REMAINS A STRONG INVESTMENT
By KIM HARRISON
Opportunities to make big. quicK proftis in residential real estate tend to
come and go in cycles. When a local market is not. tamiies may lind it possible to buy a house
at an attractive price, fix it up, and watcn its value rise in just a few years
When the same local market is at Ine low end of the appreciation cycle, reaping a profit
on the family home can take a good deal more time but the reward can be just as satisfying
price and location are carefully considered
Even in uncertain economic times like these, history snows that real estate is one of the
soundest investments a family can make During the Greal Depression of Ihe 1930s when the
stock market plummeted as much as 89 percent, housing prices dropped only 39 percent
According to most of the research on housing trends, prices continually slay at Ine same level
as, and most often appreciate iasler Inan. the rate ot ;ntlation Housing prices actually rose an
average of 10 percent during the recessions of tne mid-1970s.and early 1980s.
CENTURY 21 statisticians report that the rale 0o nome appreciation since 1990 has been
around five percent nationally, with inflation hovering around four percent.-Homeowners, obvi-
ously, are still staying ahead in the real estate game on average.-
And, with mortgage interest rates the lowest they've been in two decades, real estate.
today is a more attractive investment than it's been in years.
First-time buyers are the big winners in this environment. Drawing up a budget can help
you and your family decide on what you can afford. Once you've determined a price, shop
around to find the best house you can buy for your money. This strategy can help you realize
greater appreciation two or three years down the road.
This is also a good time to purchase a second or vacation.home, that might bring an
excellent return as housing prices move upward. Affordable second-home prices also allow
you to purchase a vacation home that can serve as a stepping-stone to a larger retreat in the
future.
But appreciation isn't the only advantage to buying a home. The federal government
thinks home ownership is so important to the future of our country that it allows mortgage.
interest to remain the last substantial tax shelter for families. Owners can also take deductions,
on their property taxes. And, the profit on the sale of your home remains tax free as long as
you buy a house for a greater or equal price.
So oelore you decide final this is not a gooa lime to invest in residential property., re
exarnire me nriarcial cenelts of owning your own nome and put Inem to work for you

Spring Wildflower Hikes Celebrate 20th Anniversary


Driving along seemingly flat
terrain in northern Liberty and
western Gadsden counties, visi-
tors'might be surprised to know
that nearby are places where the
ground plunges 100 feet. To
expose the biological treasure
trove hidden in this dramatic
topography, The Nature Conser-
vancy's Apalachicola bluffs and
Ravines Preserve is offering a
series of Spring Wildflower Hikes.
The free hikes are scheduled for
the last Saturday in February,
March, and April.
Twenty years ago, The Nature
Conservancy began to protect this
area by establishing the preserve,
located south of Torreya State
Park. In celebration of the pre-
serve's 20th anniversary, visitors
will get a chance to see ravine gar-
dens not normally open to the
public and learn the story of this
special place from experienced


guides.
Deep within the ravines,
many unusual plants and ani-
mals are sheltered from climatic'
extremes and human abuse. For
some species, this is the. only
place in the world they live. Some
are relics left behind when glaci-
ers of the last ice age receded.
Some are more commonly found
in the Appalachian Mountains
and reach their southern limit
here. Others appear to have
evolved in this very place, estab-
lishing their own special niches.
Each month's hike will reveal
different plants and places. Early
spring bloomers will be featured
on Saturday, February 23rd.
Some of the flowers that visitors
might see are little Sweet Betsy,
an herb with three simple leaves
below a purplish, 3-parted flower;
wild ginger, a creeping herb rare


in Florida; red buckeye, a shrub
with a cluster of scarlet flowers;
eastern redbud, a tree with dis-
tinctive pink to magenta blooms

Patriot Bonds
Are Attractive
By: Andy Wilkinson
Financial Advisor
On December 11, 2001, the
three month anniversary of the
September 11th terrorist attacks,
the U.S. Treasury Department
unveiled the "Patriot Bond," a
Series EE savings bond that was
introduced to provide Americans
with an opportunity to support
the country while saving for their
future.. In light of the significant
Increase in patriotism following
the attack on our nation, it should
,be of no surprise that many
investors have expressed interest
in learning more about these sav-
ings bonds.
For many older investors, the
Patriot Bond* may sound like a
familiar concept. During the days
of World War II, the Series E
Savings Bond was renamed the
"War Savings Bond." More than


Andy Wilkinson
Financial Advisor
85 million Americans purchased
these bonds between 1941, and
1945, raising over $185 billion,
i which significantly bolstered the
government's' financial resources'
during the war.
Before purchasing a Patriot
Bond today's version of the War
Bond you should understand
that just as during World War II.
the. proceeds from the sale of
these bonds are not earmarked to
pay for the War on Terrorism. All
funds raised through Treasury
The securities are -deposited- in the
. "" general fund. which is spent,
ous according to law. While this may
the be discouraging to some. support-
ers of the Patriot Bond are quick
m to point out that the money gener-
ated h~ the new bonds is being
raised at a critical time. as the
government needs increased
funding to help fight terrorism.
Investors .can' purchase
Patriot Bonds through a varietry of
financial institutions. Because
they are simply Series EE bonds
with a 'Patriot Bond' inscription,
and 'regular Series EE bonds are
no longer available, there is no
special application for these
bonds. They are sold for half of
S their face value and are available
in denominations of $50, $75,
n $100, $200, $500; $1,000,
S $5,000, and $10,000. The bonds
) will earn interest until reaching
e their. full maturity in .30 years,
and can be redeemed after just six
n months. But keep in mind that a.
three-month interest penalty is
applied to bonds that are cashed
in during their first five years. For
example, if you redeem a Patriot
n Bond just 12 months after pur-
chasing 4it, you will 'only receive
4. your original payment, plus nine
months interest three months
.e less than the duration of your
ownership.
Patriot fBonds will earn 90
percent of the five-year Treasury
t securities' yield until reaching
S final maturity (30 years). The cur-
I- rent rate, which is in effect
through April 2002, is 4.07 per-
e cent. Because this rate is-adjusted
every six months, it is impossible
.e to predict exactly when a Patriot
.y Bond will reach its face value.
As with all investments, it is
important. to carefully consider
your investment goals when eval-
uating Patriot Bonds. Many
investors are attracted to savings
bonds because they are backed by
the U.S. government and exempt
from local and state income taxes.
And though federal income taxes
on the income generated by the
bond are imposed, they can be
deferred until the bond is cashed.
Historically, the return on
Treasury-Bonds has not matched
the long-term potential of equi-
ties. But keeping assets balanced
between stocks, bonds, and cash
is critical for long-term invest-
S ment growth. The security that is
provided by these bonds could
make them a useful addition to
your portfolio. To learn more
about Patriot Bonds and whether
or not they fit into your invest-
ment plan, contact your Financial
Advisor. Prudential Securities is
not a legal or tax advisor.
