Tim Croft

Star Welcomes

Croft To Staff
Willie Ramsey, editor of The
Star, is pleased to welcome Tim
Croft to the paper's staff..
Croft will serve as an area
reporter and his experience in
covering all aspects of news--
from the halls of Tallahassee to
the baseball diamond-will come
in handy as.he pursues his ambi-
tions in community journalism.
Being the son of a journalist
and a teacher, Croft said he is a
"transplanted Yankee" who has
spent the past 20 years develop-
ing new roots in this area. His
- past work experience includes 10
years with the Panama City News
Herald. Three of those years he
was the Capital Bureau Chief for
Freedom Communications cover-
ing state governmental issues in
Tallahassee.
Most recently, he has been
pursuing an upper graduate
degree in communications.
Croft has a special place in
his heart for the Gulf
County/Mexico Beach area as
was revealed by several stories he
wrote on area events. A feature.
story on former basketball coach
Vernon Eppinette, stories on the
mill closing, and several editorials
urging economic help for the
county, depicted his concern.
He considers joining the staff
at The Star to be almost like a
homecoming since he has several
relatives living throughout the
area.

Gulf County commissioners
received some good news about
one of the county's main
roadways which badly needs
resurfacing.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
broke news to board members
saying it looks as though the state
has approved grant funds for the
project. Gulf County Chief
Administrator Don Butler
explained that Gulf has -been
approved for some left over paving
funds in the County Incentive
Grant program. This is normally a
matching grant program,
requiring a major portion of the
project cost to be financed by the
county awarded the grant.
In the case of Gulf County.
Butler said that conversations
with DOT have led him to believe
the county could receive a waiver
for its portion of matching funds.


The grant amount will total $1.6
million. If the waiver is accepted,
this should be adequate funds to
resurface and stripe the entire
19.5 miles of road.
The board unanimously
agreed to go out for bids on the
paving project contingent upon
the state accepting the matching
funds waiver request.
Industrial Park Lease OK'd
Butler gave commissioners
another bit of good news when he
told them that EDA had approved
the proposal submitted by
Taunton Truss. Inc. to lease the
county's industrial park.
David Taunton had made a
lease/purchase proposal to lease
the 12.000 sf building in response
to bid request. The building is
located on two acres of the
county's 15-acre industrial park
complex and was built by grant


Sexual Harassment Filed


Against County In Mediation


A complaint of sexual harass-
ment and retaliation has been
filed against the Gulf County'
Board of County% Commissioners
by County Administrative
Assistant Debbe Wibberg.
According to Wibberg's attor-
ney. Alisa James. the complaint is
currently in mediation with the
Flonda Commission on- -Human.
Relations. An actual suit has not
been filed to date. but both par-
ties are continuing the mediation
process with the Human
Relations Commission.
At the point %%,hen the media-
tion process is complete, this
complainant (Wibberg) can exer-
cise the options to determine she
is satisfied, with the results or file
suit in state or federal court.
County Commissioner
Nathan Peters, Jr.. whose actionrs
reportedly spurred the complaint.
submitted the following remarks
on his behalf, through his attor-
ney Alvin Peters.

GC ESP Supports
Union Representation.
On February 21, the
Education Support Personnel of
the. Gulf County School Board
* voted 44-27 in favor of union rep-
resentation. Employees chose the
Gulf County Education Associa-
tion as their collective bargaining
agent. The-ESP bargaining unit
includes bus drivers, paraprofes-
sionals, cafeteria workers, clerical
.staff, maintenance personnel, and,
all other non-supervisory non-
managerial, support personnel.
GCEA has represented
instructional personnel in Gulf
County for'over 25 years.
"Our members are proud to
welcome. Gulf County School
Board ESP into the GCEA family,"
said president Judy Campbell.
"We worked for over a year to win
this election, and it finally paid
off."
The Public Employee Rela-
tions Commission certified 'the
election results after counting the
ballots last Thursday in Talla-
hassee. Employees cast ballots via
mail during a three-week period.
Barring an appeal by either the
school board or the union, PERC
will issue a final order on March
11 recognizing GCEA as the col-
lective bargaining agent. GCEA
will then send a formal request to
the school board to begin bargain-
ing a contract.
."Our goal is to bargain a con-
tract that improves the pay, bene-
fits, and working conditions of the
ESP in Gulf County schools," says
Campbell. "Given the drive to pri-
vatize support services, cut school
budgets, and politicize the state
education system, educational
employees need a strong voice to
represent them in front of the
school board and in Tallahassee.
GCEA provides Gulf County
school employees with that voice."

The Bank Adds LUcal Branches


The Bank, a community-
based financial institution with 34
branches in Alabama and Florida,
has added its newest offices in
Port St. Joe, Apalachicola and
Mexico Beach.
Another new branch will open
this summer in Carrabelle. Seven
of The Bank's offices also operate
as Emerald Coast Bank in
Panama City, Panama City Beach,
Seagrove, Santa Rosa Beach and
Destin.
The Bank offers a complete
line of financial services to its cus-
tomers, including loans, checking
accounts, safety deposit boxes,
equity lines and money market
accounts. Also, any customer can
bank at any one of the 34 offices
in Alabama and Florida, including
the Emerald Coast Bank, a divi-
sion of The Bank offices.


The Bank's website, which
can be found at www.thebankmy
bank.com, offers a compete line of
interactive capabilities as well as
information on new products,
branch and ATM locations. The
Bank will also offer, during 2002,
life and long-term health insur-
ance products as well as fixed and
variable annuities.
The Bank started in 1997
when James A. Taylor, founding
Chairman of the Board, came out
-of retirement to start The Bank.
The Bank is the combination of
nine community banks through-
out Alabama and Florida.
The Bank is owned by The
Banc Corporation, which is a pub-
licly traded financial holding com-
pany and is headquartered in
Birmingham, Alabama. Its stock
is traded on the Nasdaq stock
market under the symbol: TBNC.


House, the county would become'
part of District 6, currently repre-
sented by Rep. Allan Bense, R-:
Panama City. Bense's- district
boundaries, now entirely within
Bay County, would extend east to
include Mexico Beach, all of Gulf
County and Apalachicola in
Franklin County.
Bense was elected to the
District 6 seat by a wide margin in
1998 and returned by a similarly,
lopsided vote in 2000.
Rep. Bev Kilmer, R-Quincy,
who has represented Gulf County
since 1998, would see her District
7 borders pushed north to include
more of Leon County, half of
Wakulla County and parts/or all of
Gadsden, Jackson, Calhoun and
Liberty counties. Kilmer would
also continue to represent north-
ern Bay County and coastal areas
from western Panama City Beach
to Destin.
Each of the 120 state House
districts is drawn to meet a target
population of around 130,000.
"We had to add approximately
23,000 people to District 6 so the
current alignment will shift east,
picking up all of Gulf County and
the city of Apalachicola," Bense


said.
"For the past 10 years the
House member from District 6
has represented constituents only
in Bay County. But there a lot of
.similaritiesbetween the two coun-
ties and Apalachicola of course
the fishing industry comes to
mind.
'But Bay, Gulf and Franklin
counties have all been carrying
out aggressive economic develop-
ment programs and I'm looking
forward to working with leaders in
this arena."
The House proposal, which
would leave the county in senate
District 3, now represented by
Tallahassee Democrat Al Lawson,
is an opening salvo in the redis-
tricting battle in which legislators
must, by law, engage every 10
years to reflect population shifts
revealed by new census numbers.
The Senate and House have
both proposed leaving the
Panhandle Congressional seats
untouched.
The Senate, though, has yet
to approve a redistricting plan of
state seats. Once approved, the
House and Senate will meet in

T EDITORIAL COMMENTARY _4A4% .._C4 Le444 W4Z 1k4 by Kesley Colbert


Need to Change Their Name

How does that old saying go-"Behind every man there's a good
woman?"
Now, I would be the first to admit this statement is probably a
lot truer than most of us men Would want to confess. One partidc-
ular group of women has taken this statement to a new level. The
Junior Service League has been very active and all for the benefit
of its community. "
They have just completed 'one of their major fund-raising,
events-Mardi Gras Gala 2002 and are looking forward to using
donations given to the event for a number of worthy projects in
which they are involved'. .
This group of ladies is involved in scholarship programs, cloth-
ing children, Accelerated Reading, Friends of the Library. Adopt-A-
Class, Humane Society, Monumental Music, Gold Card Club, Gulf'
County Senior Citizens, Kids on the Block puppets, girls' soccer,
cultural events, girls' Dixie League softball, -Chamber of Com-
merce, and PSJ High School academic/athletic programs.
Add to this the fact many of them have to tend to a multitude
of family, work, and other obligations, and their efforts can seem
fo be almost super human.
I've had the privilege of seeing several activities they support
and my favorite is Monumental Music. Wowl! The setting is almost
like a backdrop for heaven as music permeates the air and folks
gather under the giant oaks and plantation pines at Monument
Park. Tle only distractions to the music being played are the set-
ting of the sun over St. Joseph Bay, children hanging from the low
-lying limbs of the majestic oak trees, and of ,course, the smell of
some mighty good food.
Ladies, you've made 'some fine contributions to your commu-
nity .... but, why do they call you the Junior Service League .
maybe Outstanding Service League would be a better name.
Thanks!!! !



Sec. Harris-A Tall Woman

Some newspaper reporters really know how to make them-
selves look and sound just as stupid as most people think they
are. I don't guess I'm any exception to that group even though I tr-y
real hard to be.
One of my'all time favorite "in the limelight" people is Florida
Secretary of State Katherine_Harris. When I was told a few weeks
ago that I would have the opportunity to have a one-on-one inter-
view with her it- made my day. I tried to hide my excitement from
Republican Party Chairman Gary Ross and treated the whole mat-
ter sort of common place, but inside I was anxiously anticipating
my first question. ,
As Sec. Harris made her way through the front door and into
the foyer of Committee Member Allen Cox's home I extended my
hand in greeting and said--"Hello, Secretary Harris, I'm Willie
Ramsey .Ithought you were taller." '
It was too late .. the diarrhea of the mouth syndrome had
caught up to me and I couldn't take it back.
In my mind I had always pictured Sec. Hai-ris as being at least
6' tall. That's the way she came across as hundreds and thou-
sands of newspeople from across the globe stuck cameras, micro-
phones, tape .recorders, and note pads up to her face and drilled
her with a barrage of questions about Florida's election.
Her answer was bold, it cut though all of the rhetoric. it w'as
consistent, and never waivered. "We're going to follow Florida law."
Since that time countless' counts and recounts hae been
taken and numerous investigative articles have been written. but
as Sec. Harris stated. "Florida has been \-indicated to the nation
and to the world." -
Thank goodness. Sec. Harris said people tell her all the time
they thought she was taller. You know, come to think about it. I
believe she looked taller by the time she finished speaking at the
dinner last week--maybe it was the high heels. ,

Winter Olympics since those days.
They've got events like the
Skeleton where the competitor

where you twist and nlip and fly .

We did all of that in one event!
We' kept score by how many

It Takes A Mountain of Paper to Construct a Molehill of Wood


SPRING IS NEARLY upon us ;'
and we have the human species
beginning to build "nests" all over
town. We especially have "nests"''
being constructed in my neighbor-
hood. "My" neighborhood is an
area of a block in either direction
from my house.
The neighborhood is nearly all
built up at present, but there are
still several houses being built
within a two block area of my
home.
A house has been started on
the street which runs behind my
. house and at least two houses are
being started across the park from
my house, down on the bayfront.
The house behind me is being
built, I believe, by Greg and Pam
Summers on property which was
once a portion of the Episcopal
Manse property.. The houses in
front of my house, on the bay, are
being built by Buddy Wood and
one by his son, I'm told.

THESE ARE JUST a few of


the dwellings presently, under
construction at the present time. .
Garrison Avenue .is also experi-
encing a building boom, as -is.
Ward Ridge:
Therie'snot too many housing
starts- currently going on, but
there is a lot when you think of
Sthe -size of Port St. Joe and con-
.- sider that none of these housing
starts are in the surrounding
beach communities, which have
their own building spurts going
on.
Add to that the rash of build-
ing of nests which the birds have
started and you have a number of
families thinking "new homes" in


the Port St. Joe area.
We're booming around b~re,
like it or not!

IN ADDITION TO THE num-
ber of new homes, I have noticed a.
- new construction project current-
.ly underway to the immediate left
of my bedroom !.
It seems as if some four or five
little boys from my neighborhood
have pooled their efforts to build a
tree house in an oak tree wfiich
-sits a-straddle of the property 'line
,between my house and Dr.
"Dusty" May's, next door.
As a matter of fact, I think the
twro May boys -are the prim- con-


tractor for the project. When they
moved into the old Walter Duren
house, some few years ago, their
father and grandfather. Dave May,
built a tree house for the pre-
schoolers in the back yard.
But that house has gone out
of fashion, now. and the boys feel
they need a new house, one they
have designed and built, them-,
selves. -
The\y are building a tri-level
and starting from the top and
building to the ground, unlike the
usual house, which is built from
the ground up. -
I. don't know whether or not
they have the myriad of permits.
* one needs: to build a house these
days, but do they need them?
They have no foundation to
get approved, no electricity to get
inspected and no indoor plumbing
to get approved. Their roof is com-
posed of the limbs and leaves
above the three floors and access
it by three steps they have ham-
mered into the side of the tree.


An "elevator" consisting of a
dairy box drawn up on a piece of
string. serves as a "lift" for con-
struction items to be hoisted to
the construction site.
They have a regular building
operation going.

THE ONLY THING which dis-
turbs me is, they get to chattering
and hammering and building and
they disturb my dog, "Smudgie."
S You see, "Smudgie" protects
the homestead. The least noise
outside-. makes her bark and
alarm us. :.
SNow, we don't know if a car
has driven in ,the driveway, a son.
or daughter has come by, the cat
is moving around outside, or 'a
bird has flown against the win-
dow.
Or, the construction gang is
busy outside!
"Smudgie" lets us know some-
,thing out of the ordinary is hap-
pening.


The new 'contractors" project, .
sans permits, reminds me of the
necessity for obtaining these per-
mits and how they affect every
project.
Ray Sittig, the former execu-
tive director of the Flonda League
of Cities, who is presently the
"gofer" for an antique shop owned
by his wife in town, came, by the
office last Thuirsday when 1 was
here and told me his experience in
obtaining permits. "'
It seems as if the last storm
we had washed all the beach away
from in front- f his beachfront
home. He started the'process of
moving his house back from the
Snef. shoreline.. '- "
...It, involved getting multiple
Speirmits before he could start the
moving process.
As it wound up, Sittig said 'he
had found a new curse to wish
upon his enemies-That, they be
required to get the necessary per-
mits to move a house back a few
yards, at the beach

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2002 PAGE 3A


It was reported in last week's
edition of The Star that Wakulla
county Circuit. Judge Sanders
Sauls had ruled- in favor, of com-
mercial fishermen's use of the
Pringle-Crum net.
I In an effort by Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) to appeal that
decision, a circuit court ruling
Thursday lifted the requirement
that nets consist of no more than
two-inch stretched mesh, but
only in Franklin, Wakulla, and
Jefferson County waters.
Law enforcement officers
from the FWC cannot enforce the
two-inch mesh requirement in the
inshote and nearshore waters of
those counties while appeals and
additional litigation is pending.
S. In a February 11 ruling, the
Second Judicial Circuit Court in
Wakulla County held that the
FWC rule, which prohibits nets
whose mesh exceeds two inches
stretched, is unconstitutional.
.The FWC appealed that ruling,
Which resulted in an automatic
stay: of the circuit court ruling.
The stay allowed FWC to continue
to enforce the two-irich mesh rule
during the appeal process.
Local Gulf County and area
commercial fishermen are not
happy to be exempt from.the rul-
ing.
"We need somebody some-
where to do something," said local
fisherman Mark Moore.
"This' ruling discriminates

"Well, you just eliminated

"You can't pick a winner if
tthere ain't no finish line." That.
made sense to me.

Gulf County," said Moore. ,
He went on to explain that he
was glad his fellow fishermen in
Franklin, Wakulla, and Jefferson
counties had received the ruling,
but commercial fishing is very
important in Gulf County also.
Gulf County fishermen are
seeking to be included in the rul-
ing.
However, Thursday's ruling
lifted the stay and opened the
door for fishermen to resume
using nets of unlimited mesh size
throughout the net.
Officers will continue to1
enforce all other fishing regula-
tions, including the provision that
nets may not be larger than 500
square feet in nearshoree and
inshore waters. Nets with
stretched mesh larger than two
inches are still prohibited in all
other Florida counties.
Meanwhile, FWC attorneys
will file an emergency motion with
the First District Court of
Appeals, requesting the -court to
re-impose the stay until the
appeal process has run its course.
FWC hopes to have a ruling
within several weeks.
One provision of Thursday's
ruling suggests that use of a net
that results in 90 percent of its
catch being entangled in the '
mesh may be a violation of the
state's constitution, even though
the two-inch mesh restriction is
not in force in the three counties.
"There will be confusion over
this ruling," said FWC General
Counsel Jim Antista. "We are
appealing to clarify the require-

Pearl, and his twelve siblings soon
followed him to this area.
He was the father to nine chil-
dren. His Biblical belief was his
pattern for raising his family,
operating his grocery store busi-
ness for more than 35 years, pas-
toring in the Church of God in
Christ denomination over 50
years, and serving as a leader in
this community until his death.
S Whether you were one of his
children, a member of his congre-
gation, a customer in his store, or
a member of the community, he
gave everyone fair, firm, but lib-
eral -treatment.
He was fair. in administering
advice to married couples; he also
was firm in commitments that he
made in marriage vows, financial
obligations, and devotion to right-
eous and holy living. He was lib-
eral in that he would tolerate
others who had different beliefs.
He was generous with his time,
money, and groceries which were
evident by the many families he
fed during the shutdowns of the
St. Joe Paper Company-he carried
many families until the mill
reopened and many times some of
the customers would not pay.
'Although he had little formal
education, he had the foresight to
properly educate his children. He
provided a sound and safe home
where they could live and work in
the same building-home upstairs
and store downstairs-for his chil-
dren and wife, Gladys, who was
his backbone.
He often- amazed his children
with his mathematical abilities
and imparted much of those s-kills
to 'them. The children were
assigned shelves to keep stocked
and. to figure a 30% markup on
items. Of course, he checked to

salt-tolerant plants.
Finally. check with your local
County Extension Office for a
copy of Fact Sheet ENH-26. Salt
Tolerant Plants for Florida. It
lists trees. shrubs and Ground
covers with varying degrees of salt
tolerance.


Salt Tolerant Plants


Lots of sunshine, broad
expanses of windswept beach,
and clean, salt air-an invigorating
environment for people, but not
for most plants. Unfortunately,
wind, abrasive blowing sand, and
salt spray aren't the only prob-
lems. The soils of coastal areas
usually are extremely dry, infer-
tile, and practically devoid of
organic matter. Home gardeners
who live near the gulf or ocean
face a real. challenge ..
Many inland residents own
vacation beach cottages. So hope-
fuly this article will be of interest
to more than just coastal dwellers!
Successful landscape garden-
ing along the, coast does require
some carefully planning, adequate
soil preparation, and properplant
selection. I'll talk about some of
the things you need to consider
R, when landscaping near salt Water.
Probably the first place to
start is with adequate soil prepa-
ration. To compensate for low soil
fertility, you can add, fertilizers
containing the missing soil nutri-
ents.. However, fertilizers can
quickly lsach out of sandy coast
soils. So,' if 'at all possible, add
some organic matter.
Practically any type will
do-from compost to commercial
peat. In addition to helping retain
the fertilizer, the organic matter
will improve soil moisture, easing
the drought problem so common
,along the coast.
To reduce wind and sand
damage to tender ornamentals,
you can create a screen of hardier
plants. But that's just a start in
coping with coastal conditions.
.TThe biggest problem is also the
S toughest to overcome. It's the
excess of salt in the soil. Salt
causes trouble for plants in two
ways. First, salt greatly reduces
the amount of water plants can
take up. Second, salt can be
directly toxic to plants: if the salt
-content% is hiah enough. it will
i'f.rn not only the lea ve df plants. "
Sbut their roots ael'


There are only a couple of
things you can do t6 help plants
cope with excess salt. If you have
enough fresh water, you can irri-
gate heavily.: This will carry the
salt out of the root zone. To pre-
vent leaf burn, you can wash
excess salt from leaf surfaces.
However, there are no magic
chemicals which will remove salt
from the soil or foliage. Fresh
water conservation is a growing
concern..
If you can't do all that irrigat-
ing and washing, or if your water
supply is already too salty, you
have only one choice. That is to
remove sensitive plants from your
landscape and replace them with
salt tolerant species.
You can find out which plants
will tolerate the salt condition in
your landscape in several ways.
Check with your neighbors.
Usually, someone in every neigh-
borhood manages to maintain
attractive home grounds. Find out
what plants have done well' for
others in your area. You might
also check with a nursery. If salt
problems are common, local nurs-
ery operators and garden centers
normally have a good selection of

Mexico Beach Rolls In A New



Home for Administrative Offices


..-









Traffic was at a stand-still most of the day as the City of
Mexico Beach moved their 'new' office building to its new home.

Keller Roasted for 73rd Birthday


President Bill Clinton's "look
alike" and his two bodyguards
were' the special guests who
roasted Bernie Keller. a local Gull
County builder, on his 73rd birth-
day. The surprise party was held
at Ma.xine's Restaurant located
about five miles north of
Wewahitchka on Brvan Settench
Road. Mr. Keller's wife. E.J., her
sister and co-owner Rae Ellen
Floyd, organized the celebration.

Mr. Keller stated he was
totally surprised and amazed how
well all that attended were able to
keep such a secret from him for
over two weeks
Keller was roasted by his wife
and family to the delight of all that
attended. The Presid:ent took the
lion's share of time and finally
gave him a Presidential pardon for
all his misdemeanors over the


past 73 years.
The bodyguards were Tom
Wynn. a resident of Wewa. and
Scott Bozeman. a resident of
Dalkeith. Jamie Lester of Wewa
played an excellent Bill Clinton.
At one point Lester dropped his
notes and jokes on the floor, and
for a few moments was lost for
words. ...amazing!!
AJllI who attended had fun.
Terry Linton became a willing
actor when he walked in the room
and became a secunty risk. The
bodyguards sprang into action
surprising the guest speaker and
the room full of well-wishers.
Two cakes were presented to
Keller. One with 73 candles which
had to have a fireguard on
standby,. and one with Happy
Birthday Bernie on it. (The cake
with the candles had a major
meltdown!)


Motorists on U.S. 98 in
Mexico Beach one recent after-
noon encountered one of the more
unusual road hazards one is
likely to find on a busy highway: a
slow-moving octagonal house. ;
It wasn't a case of brazen
house theft, though Mexico Beach
city officials could argue they
made something of a steal in find-
ing the structure that will' house
its administrative offices in the
near future.
The multi-story house, now
sitting adjacent to the current city
offices, was purchased by the city
for $14,500, roughly half the ask-
ing price of a developer who had
purchased several lots on the west
side of town, including one on
which sat the house.
All told, the city 'will spend
about $50,000 for the new office
space including foundation, trai-
lering the. house to its new site


and renovations, according to city
administrator Paul Sabiston. The
bill could very easily have been
-several hundred thousand dollars
if the city had been forced to build
a new structure.
"It's not a perfect design,"
Sabiston said of the house's
octagonal lines, "but you have to
Sgo with what's there. We were at
the right place at the right time.
'"There are no bonds, 'no new
debt. This should keep us going
for the next eight years or so."
When renovations are com-
pleted the4 new structure will be
home of the city's administrative
offices.
The current office facility will
be taken over by the police depart -
ment, currently .relegated to a
cramped corner, and the public
works department. .

Before the county could
accept the proposal it had to be
approved by EDAto ensure that
the specifications met its
guidelines. Butler stated that EDA
did approve the proposal as
submitted.
As. previously reported in The
Star; Taunton 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.
components and a limited con-
struction /contractor supply
service is also included in the
plans.

day of the board's meeting. The
information could then be
reviewed and brought to the
meeting, saving time during the
meeting and expediting the bid
process.
*Commissioner Nathan
Peters, Jr. presented a petition
with 84 Millview residents'
signatures calling for additional
testing at the site and adjacent
areas by the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP). DEP.has already stated
they intend to expand the scope of

Redistricting from age


conference committee, to iron out
differences between the respective
versions. For instance, the Senate
plan currently in committee
would maintain the status quo for
Panhandle state House districts.
Capitol scuttlebutt had it that
the Senate would defer to the
House on House.districts and vice
versa, but all 'bets are off in the
fallout from the House vote to kill
the Senate's proposed overhaul of
Florida's tax code.
The Legislature's final redis-
tricting proposal, which must be
finished by the March 22 end of
the current legislative session,
must be reviewed and approved
by the Florida Supreme Court.
The Justice Department must
also sign off on the redistricting
plan under a long-standing fed-
eral court order.
It is likely a special session
would be required this summer so


that lawmakers could address
issues or concerns raised by the
state Supreme Court or Justice
Department, and make any nec-
essary changes.
New districts for .House,
Senate and Congressional seats
take effect with this year's elec-
tions.
After her election Kilmer
opened a satellite office in Port St.
Joe and became a champion for a
wide range of local economic
development initiatives, working
closely with the governor's office
after Gov. Jeb Bush declared the
county a rural area of critical eco-
nomic concern.
"When I was first elected the
county was going through its cri-
sis and we bonded so ,tightly and
we've .been going through it
together," Kilmer said.
"I fell in love all over again.
That's the hardest part of this


redistricting process, losing Gulf
County."
Kilmer emphasized, however,
that the county will not be losing
her. As long as she is in the
Legislature, a portion of her focus
. will continue to be the county.
"I'm not walking away just
because they are drawing new
lines," Kilmer said. "There are still
many things we need to do.
"Allan and I have already
talked about Gulf County and he's
always been supportive of the
county and its needs. It's impor-
tant for people to realize there is
no learning curve there. Allan
knows about the issues in the
county."
Bense agreed.
"I do not see any change
whatsoever," Bense said. "Having
grown up in the Bayou George
area and goipg to school on the
east .end of Bay County, I have
many friends and acquaintances
in Gulf County. I see this as a log-
ical extension of the district I've
been representing since 1998.

Winner of Valentine Basket
Wendy Province (photo on, left) was the lucky winner of the Valentine basket donated by Pam I'.
Harden (on left in righthand photo), owner of Gran's Country Fixins located in Wewahitchka. The
basket full of beautiful candles made by Pam in her shop was given to Bay St. Joseph Care Center's
Relay for Life team for their efforts as they join other teams to help wipe out cancer in our life-
time. Conducting the drawing was Diane Sorey, BSJCC administrator (pictured at right).
This is the one big fundraising project that Bay St. Joseph Care Center participates in annual-
ly to give support to a community who gives so freely to its residents throughout the year.


"I'm looking forward to serv-
ing the. people of Gulf County."
Nonetheless, having Bense,
who like Kilmer reflects the area's
bedrock conservative leanings, in
the county's corner inside the
marbled halls of the Capitol could
turn out to be something of a
plum. The Panama City business-
man has quickly risen to the top
ranks of Republican leadership
and is in line to become Speaker
of the House in 2005-2006.
Republicans currently hold
an overwhelming majority in the,
House and Bense is widely
reported by the major Florida
newspapers to be the front-run-
ner to follow Rep. Johnnie Byrd,
R-Plant City, into -the. speaker's
chair.


Byrd has been tabbed by GOP
lawmakers to succeed Tom
Feeney of Oviedo as speaker next
year 'if, as expected, the GOP
retains control of the House in the
November elections. Byrd would
hold that position for two years.
Bense, first elected in 1998,
has received much credit and
praise for steering millions in
state and federal funds to Bay
County for infrastructure needs,
such as roads, a proposed new
airport, replacements for the
Hathaway Bridge and capital out-
lay projects at Gulf. 'Coast
Community College and Florida
State University.
Additionally, among his com-
mittee assignments, Bense chairs
the panel which oversees House


legislation pertaining to trans-
portation, natural resources,

S"Nursing Bottle Syndrome"
occurs when a baby's front teeth
.begin to decay, or crumble
because of the effects of acid on
the tooth enamel. The acid
comes from liquids, such as
apple.juice, orange juice, grape
juice, soda, and milk. Bacteria,
which are naturally present in
the mouth, rapidly convert the
sugars in these drinks to acids
that can decay teeth.
The first damage is done


nursing Bottle


Syndrome

when your baby uses the bottle
as a pacifier when sleeping. The"
flow of saliva is reduced during
sleep, and so is the saliva's pro-.
tective effect. The decay-causing
liquids, stagnate and attack your
baby's teeth at a rapid rate.-,
Decay will show up first as white
,spots, which may turn yellow or
brown. If "Nursing Bottle
Syndrome". is detected early
enough, your dentist may be
able to prevent further decay.
The best treatment for the
syndrome is 'PREVENTION!
Don't use juices or milk in a baby
bottle as a pacifier to help your
baby fall asleep. water should be
used as a substitute liquid.

stadium. "Area field meets normal-
ly include platoon drill, physical
training, color guard and academ-
ic competition. Due to the small
size of this event only squad drill
and physical training were includ-
ed.
First and second place medals
were awarded in teams competi-
tion. In addition, first, second and
third place medals were awarded
for individual physical training
competition. For a crowd pleaser
and special event, cadet
Lieutenant Robert Dykes led the
drill team in exhibition drill.
First place medals in Squad
drill .went to cadet Ensign BJ
Strickland's squad. Members
included cadet CPO Austin
Horton, cadet CPO Brandon Stitt,

It fills most of us with dread:,
the job interview with all the con-
cerns about what to say ("I've
heard great things about your
company") or what not to say ("I
see myself in your job a year from
now"). With all that on your mind,
what to wear should be the least
of your worries.
There's no need to fear,
though, you can' look put
together, confident and land a
great job offer by following a few
simple rules.
To put your best foot forward,
start with a beautiful suit. Suits
say 'professional' in both appear-
ance and demeanor. If you're put-
chasing a new suit. for the
interview, buy the 'best quality
you can afford, in a color and fab-
ic that flatter you. For women, a
crepe, lightweight wool or rayon-
polyester blend drape nicely and
stay relatively wrinkle-free. For-
men, choose worsted or light-
weight wool with a tight weave for
long-lasting wear and good looks.
Try on suits in several different
colors to see what works best with
your skin tone and hair color.
While black, navy or charcoal
are always good choices. you may,
find a color you hadn't considered
before, such as brown, olive, or
stone that also looks great.
Take a friend along for a sec-
ond opinion when you shop. Once
you've invested in the perfect, suit,
it's time to add a few carefully
chosen accessones.
Accessories are a' wonderful
way of 'adding expression and
individualism to an interview out-,
fit. '.
Accessories are like the punc-
tuation in a sehtence-you need
good ones to, make your, look com-
plete'. For women, 'a beautiful silk
scarf .worn neatly around the
neck or an antique or contempo-
rary-looking brooch on a jacket
can make you. feel confident. For.
men, ha beautiful silk tie with sim-
ple graphics or stripes can have
the same effect.
Shoes, handbags or brief-,
cases should be. polished or


cleaned before you go to an inter-
view. And if you're buying new
shoes, buy the best leather you
can afford-it's a smart invest-
ment.
If you've recently'added blue
streaks to your hair or had finger-
tip decals put on in honor of your
favorite sports team, remove them
before a job interview. Obvious
advice for most, but for, young
people who may be going on their
first interview, what might be hip,
fashion among your friends -i-,
usually not what's appropriate for:
a job interview.
Other no-no's include visible
body piercing such as nose rings,,
or excessive earrings. tattoos. or
unkempt nails. Make sure your-.
hair is simple and clean looking,:-
and your nails neatly filed. ,Go'
easy on the perfume or cologne
since many people are allergic,
:and for women, don't forget
pantyhose.
Remember, when you're sit-
ting across from' an interviewer,
they're taking you all in. They
don't know you, so what they see.
hiow 'you present yourself. is
almost as important as what you
say. .

two-day trip to the state's capital.,
While in Tallahassee; these partic-'
ipants will be joined by other '11th

Wewahitchka


High School 08

by Dr. Bill Truby '


Idea #8 from the list of "18
Ideas for ,Becoming a Master
Student". is as follows:, Consider
class time as a time in which you
PRACTICE thinking (within the
subject) using the fundamental
concepts and principles of the
course. Don't sit back passively,
waiting for knowledge to fall into
your head like rain into a rain
barrel. It won't. In other words,.
take advantage of all available
class time to think and work on
the subject at hand!
The next round of FCAT tests
is set for March 11-13, and they
will be for all grades. However,
remember that 10h graders must
pass all portions of the FCAT in
order to graduate! Our school
grades depend on the success of
our 8th and 10th graders as well.
The boys basketball team


ended its season last Thursday
night at University Christian in
Jacksonville. The boys lost by a
64-62 score. They had a fine sea-
son at 20-9; however, I am sure
that every one of the players
believes that they could be in a
state championship game. Let's
build on the successes and disap-
pointments!
Before we leave the topic of
sports, please know that the boys
baseball teams and the weightlift-
ing' teams are all in action. And
the girls get started this week,
too. It's early in the season, but
all indications are that we will be
very competitive in the district!'
Track and field competition is set
to begin in the near future.
There was an 8th'grade par-
ent meeting on February 26th at
5:30 p.m. in the Commons area


which focused on the upcoming
8th grade trip and preparations
for the FCAT tests. Mrs. Lister
provided updates on the Middle
School Program, too.
The Prom Attire Show. was
held on February 22nd at 1:50
p.m. We also had a couple of
guest speakers from the American
Cancer Society as we prepare to
participate in the Relay for Life on
April 13th. The SGA did a nice job
of putting on the whole affair.
Children's Home Society is
sponsoring a Football Camp and a
Cheerleading Camp for students
up to age 16 on May 18th. It will
be held in Panama City Beach.
See Dr. T for more information-
and an application.
This year's Curriculum Fair is
entitled 'Wild, Wild West." It will
be held on March 15th as a result
of a change in our calendar. Our
plans have begun in earnest to
make this another great activity.
The community is invited to
attend as it has done in the past.
And if you would like to partic-
ipate, please contact Mrs. Debbie
Cole at 639-2228.
There are other calendar
changes as a result of the FCAT


tests. Final exams for this grading
period will be given on March 7th
& 8th. The end of the grading
period is technically March 13th.
However, we will not change
classes until the 18th. Students
will be in school on the 14th &
15th of March. Students will be
off on March 25th, but they do
not get off for Spring Break until
March 29th.
Report Cards will be handed
out on March 26th. This is the
same date as our History Fair. We
will distribute Report Cards dif-
ferently this time. They will be
made available to parents in the
evening of the 26th. Those not
picked up then will be handed out
the next day in school.
Don't forget about our
Opportunity Center. It is open
Monday through Friday from 7:30
in the morning until several hours
after school. Call 639-9576 for
more. information. Tutoring is
available and so is help on com-
puters!
The Gator Sound is sponsor-
ing a special event on February
28th a Magic Show. The adrmis-
sion is free for all students who
are accompanied, by a paying
adult. Adults are $8 and students
coming by themselves are $4. The
time of the Magic Show is 7:00
p.m.
' The Academic Team travels to
Vanguard High School for a com-
petition this Friday and Saturday.
Daniel Jordan, Ryan Martin,
Andrew Lassiter,, and Clark
Cutchin will represent Wewa.


by Cindy Belin

garten through second grades will

tant in the younger classes that

the world, Daniel Jones presented
a neat poster as he reported on
Mexico. Nlarn Caitlin Bouington
reported on El Salvador. She also
had a bear that told the story .of
Goldilocks jn Spanish and played
a Spanish tape. Chase Royal gave
his report this week not last week.
He served Chinese food with his
report on China. These reports
have been so good that Dr. Taylor
is taking his older students over
to see their work.

holding another family workday to'
work on the playground. It will be
on March 2 and will begin at 9:00
a.m. Wear work clothes and bring.

ciated. The weather forecast is for

28, on the topic of Christian edu-
cation, especially concerning
Faith Christian Sc hool. He will be

S79.200 structure off State Road
65 was destroyed and will have to
be replaced. .
'..Billy Sermons, the FWC's
regional wildlife biologist, said the

acre tract as part of a broad ini-:
tative to encourage nature-based
recreation. The Sand Beach tract
is considered part of the
Apalachicola River Wildlife and

used a flammable liquid' to set the
fire, which then spread to adjoin-
ing woodlands and private prop-
erty. .

gram. Callers may remain anony-
mous and can contact the FWC's

edge of their seats as he juggled,
shot, spup, displayed other hoop
talents.
However his devotion told
those present that basketball is a
great sport, but a terrible god. He.
went on to outline the importance


of God in his life. Fuqua'has trav-
eled internationally sharing his
basketball talents and his God.
The Upward Basketball pro-
gram is hosted annually at the
Long Avenue Baptist Church
Family Life Center. The awards
night was held at Port St. Joe High
School. ,

Dr. Bret Fisher
Recertified
Ophthalmologist Bret L.-
Fisher, M.D. of Panama City was
i recently awarded board recerrfi-
cition in the sub-speciaety field of
Scataract/implant surgery. This
certification program was estab-
lished by the American Board of
Eve Surgery in conjunction with
the ,Professional Examination
Service of New York City. as a
means to identify those oph-
Lhalrruc surgeons who maintain a,
high level of surgical excellence.


To gain board recertification
by ABES in cataract/implant
surgery Dr Fisher was required to
submit a detailed record of 50
consecutive cataract/implant sur-
gical procedures. This record
allowed examiners to assess sur-
gical procedures,the indications
for surgery, the appropriateness
and type of surgery performed,
the frequency of surgical compli-
cations. and finally the -isual out-.
come and improvement following
surgery.. .
During the initial certification
process. Dr. Fisher's surgical
skills ard knowledge were evalu-
ated by ABES. In addition to the
procedures described in connec-
tion with recertification. an onsite
observer monitored three consec-
utive surgical procedures and
obtained a videoo tape of each pro-.
cedure as it was performed. The
.onsite observer, completed a
detailed checklist of observations'
made during each procedure.
_.Following the completion of
the .surgical taping. the video
tapes were returned to the ABES


national office, copied and' for-
warded to surgical examiners
(certified ophthalmologists trained
to rate the tapes). This review
process was designed to ensure
confidentiality and anonymity,
thereby eliminating any possible
bias and ensuring the objectivity
of the examiners. A random sam-
ple of candidates for recertifica-
tion ai-e also required to complete'
the videotape evaluation process.,
Upon successful completion,
Dr. Fisher received recertification
by the Board, and joins the other
350 physicians who have
achieved certification and/or.
recertification in cataract/implant
surgery since this program began
in 1989.
