Most of the major items dis-
cussed during Tuesday's county
commission meeting focused on-
--issues of interest to Cape San

and users of the various public
amenities at those beaches.
At the top of the list was a
report from Gulf County Chief
Administrator Don Butler, on a
recent trip to Washington, D.C. to
meet with FEMA and the
Department of Interior/U.S. Fish
Butler said the most encour-
aging news from the meeting was
- information from Department of
Interior (DCI) attorney David
Smith. he told the Gulf County
contingent that CBRA designation
could be changed by administra-
tive action. This was good news
because the county had hereto-

I hope most of you caught last week's article concerning The Star get- th
ting hooked up to DSL internet service with GT Com. t
Now, jI know that there are a good number of our readers who really C
could care less whether we got hoqked up to DSL, or for that matter the Y
NFL-especially if you don't happen to have a computer ahyway. I can tc
relate to that opinion somewhat. I'm surely not the highest-tech redneck
on my block. In.fact, we don't have a computer in our household. ,
Of course, after you deal with. 10 to 15 of, them during the course of
the day at work, who wants to see another one when you get home. Did
you know that approximately 60'o of households in Gulf County and The
Star's extended coverage currently have computers? That in itself is a sur-
pnsingly high-figure; but even more surprising is that nearly 40"' of
households are connected to the internet.
Now frankly, I have no desire to pull up to my computer and set down
to read the paper. There are several reasons for this-the biggest one
being it's'hard to lean back in..my chair, cross my legs, drink my first cup
of coffee of the day'and relax as I flip through the pages of the paper. You .
just can't do that with a computer-not even a laptop.
Take my word for it though. there are a lot of folks who read ihe Star
on line religiously. If we happen to run a few hours behind on our weekly
posting to the web dutes. Wendy.-Tfie Web Poster" Isbell is gonna' get a
letter or two., ll guarantee it. I
Just to try' and explain; .hat DSL brings to the table, it used to take'
approximately four hours every, week to post The, Star's information
online-not including the classified pages. The first week using DSL that
time was cut in half. This one application alone will more than pay for the
cost of having the service (don't tell the folks at GT Corn that though)
DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) is up to 50 times faster than traditional
dial up service and is going to allow us at The Star to receive and send dig-
ital files electronically that would have otherwise been impossible to han-
dle over the internet.
This new service has the potential to have even greater impact on us
at The Star as we utilize it in our commercial printing department. OT j'
Corn has brought a much needed and appreciated service to the commu-
nity through the company's expansion into DSL service. .
Tell "FOX" Not "Fox"
I was listening to the FOX News Channel Saturday and the program's
announcers were showing how actor Alec Baldwin was recently address-
ing a group and equated the election of President George Bush to the 911
catastropherin New York, City. : ., .,-,
Well, not only did old Alec lose a viewer the next time he appears on
a movie I might have considered watching. he managed to get my dander
up a bit, top.
The show's host asked for feedback from viewers on this question-
just dial 1-888-Tell-FOX and give us your opinion. I wanted Alec to know
what I thought about his statement. All I could see in my mind's eye is
where we would be at today if Clinton or his protege Gore would have been
in office when 911 occurred. (Incidentally Hillary was at the gathenng Alec"
spoke at). -
I grabbed my phone and commenced-to dial the numbers. Only prob-
lem was I didn't write down the prefix, so I dialled the most cornmmon one
1-800-Tell-FOX. when the phone was answered on the first nng I could-
n't believe it. I thought for sure I was fixing to get the opportunity to Tell-
FOX what I believed. I was going to tell them Alec has the right to believe
and say just what he wants in this country-mostly because a good num-
ber of Americans had bought and paid for that right with their lives. But.
I've got my rights too, and every time I see his face on my tube I was going
to exercise my "right" forefinger and use the remote on my TV, so I didn t
have to look at or hear him any longer and I hoped a lot of other folks felt
the same way.
(Phone answered)-"Hello,. welcome to Tell "Fox" (as in sexy, good- _
looking, provocative, sensuous and lusty) phone line. If you' are not at:
least 18 years of age please hang up. There will be a charge of $1.99 per P
minute for all.calls ...." .
I hung up before I heard any more verbal action. Besides she didn't
really seem too interested in' hearing about: what Alec had said.

meetings between St. Joe and the
port group concerning the port.
.During conversations be-
tween Fobes. and local port direc-
tor Tommy Pitts, Fobes explained
that some products are not
shipped through the port at
Gulfport because' of the relation-
ship between the community and
the close proximity of the port to
Pitts explained that this was
part of the reason for the visit
because these are some of the
very same concerns the Port
Authority has to consider as they
market the port in Gulf County.
The phrase "niche port" was
mentioned as Fobes described
their port as the third largest con-
tainer port along the Gulf Coast.
,They have achieved that status by
capitalizing on the "niche port"
d at the port. The Port of Gulfport is the third most active
Some of the "niche" items that
have been expanded upon at.
Gulfport are: #1 in banana
imports to the U.S.; #2 in fresh
fruit imports; and #1 in poultry
exports to the Russia/Baltic
region. Some of the other signifi-
cant products imported and
exported include mahogany lum-
ber, linerboard, aluminum, fence
board, cotton and ilmenite.
Traffic at the Port of Gulfport
far exceeded the expectations of
most who made the trip. The port
employs approximately 400 peo-
ple at the site. Direct employment
figures beyond the port site
exceed 8,000 jobs and indirect
employment: exceeds another
4,500 jobs, for a total of approxi-
mately 13,000 jobs. Most Port
Authority members seemed to feel
development locally would be at a
much smaller scale, but still the
potential is there. for dramatic

What does Gulf County want

while preserving, even enhancing,
the area's natural resources such

BOSTON National Fuelsaver
Corp. has developed a lo\v cost
automotive accessory called'
the Platinum Gas Saver which
alloh s 22 o more of each gallon
to burn inside the engine.
With a simple connection to
a 'acuum line. the Gas Saver'
adds microscopic quantities' of
platinum to the air-fuel mixture
entering the engine.
Since platinum allows non-.
burning fuel to burn. the Gas
Sa\er's platinum increases the
percentage of fuel burning in
the engine from 68''o of each

Since unburnt fuel l[ea ing an
engine is pollution, this 22%
of each gallon normally burns
when it reaches the platinum.
of the catalytic converter.
. Unfortunately, the con rerter's
platinum burns ibthis fuel in the
tail-pipe, where the heat and
energy produced from this
fuel cannot be harnessed to
drive your vehicle. -
But %when the Gas SaVer adds
platinum to the air-fuel mixture,
22 o more of each gallon
burns inside the engine so that
22--o fewer gallons are required
to drive the same distance.
After a five year study,.
the government concluded:
"Independent testing shows
.greater fuel savings with the
Gas, Saver'than the 22%
claimed by the developer."
In addition, the Gas Saver
has received patents for
cleaning out.carbon and raising
octane, making premium fuel
unnecessary for most vehicles.
Jdel Robinson, the developer,
commented: "We have sold a
half million Gas Savers. To our
surprise, as many people buy

Tiger Sharks Lose to Westminster
WESTMINSTER 63, PORT ST. JOE 48
THURSDAY, MARCH 7TH
The Port St. Joe Tiger Sharks
needed another offensive outing
like they had against Chipley in
the regional-finals when they took
the court Thursday morning in
the Lakeland Center against a
much bigger Fort Lauderdale.
West-minster Academy team.
However, the Tiger Sharks got.
just the opposite, making just 20
.of 57 from the field (35%) and five
of 21 (23%) from behind the arc
as the Lions rolled on to the Class
2A finals with a 63-48 win. '
'We made a great run to close
out the season," said head coach
Chuck Gannon. 'When wewere 7-
8 midway through the season, no
one expected us to make it this
far. But then we went on a 16-1
run to close out the season."
The Tiger Sharks 'trailed 18-
16 at the end of the first quarter.
Port St. Joe struggled to break the
Lions' half court trap in. the
second quarter, which resulted in
Westminster outscoring the Tiger
Sharks 16-5 to take a 34-21 lead
by half time.
"We didn't' execute and play
as good defensively as we wanted
too. We live and die by our
shooting, and it wasn't there
today," added Gannon. "They
were a good team and played
harder than we did."
The Lions outscored the Tiger
Sharks 29-27 in the second half.
Isaiah Jenkins led Port St.
Joe with a game high 18 points,
four steals and two assists. Raye
Bailey followed with 15 points and
Bartastius paced the Lions on
offense, making seven -of. eight
shots from the field for 17 points
and had eight rebounds. Taurean
Green had 13 points, As a team,
Westminster made 25 of 43 shots
from the field (56n) and 13 of 20,
from the foul line (659o).
Port St. Joe finished the
season with a 23-10 record, while
Westminster Academy went on to
defeat Florida Air Academy 70-59"

Playing the Hand That's Dealt
by Tim Croft
An old adage holds that you must play the hand your dealt.
Even if the deck is stacked.
So last week the Port St Joe Tiger Sharks surely felt as if they were
sitting across the table from a Las Vegas card shark with all the chips on
For three straight years the Tiger Sharks have reached the state Final
Four in basketball only to be denied a title, to which they had become so
accustomed in the late '90s, by a private school from the. south.
In fact, this year's Class 2A semifinals were nothing if not class war-
fare with Port St. Joe and Hamilton County blistered by almost identical
scores by two private schools.
The public vs. private thorn has been stuck in the foot of Florida
High School Activities Association for years without anyone summoning
the courage to end the pain for small public schools.
. Baseball's small-school classification was lorded over by Miami Wbst-
minster for decades until its coach established his new fiefdom at Fort
Meanwhile Tampa Prep and Tampa Berkeley Prep essentially battle
each other for domination in volleyball.
Those schools invariably field teams dotted with foreign-born players,
just as Port St. Joe has faced a veritable United Nations in recent treks
Two years ago, interpreters were needed for the press conference with
Miami Champagnat players after the private school dunked the Sharks in
/ This year, Fort Lauderdale Westminster's top player was Lithuanian.
Many college teams would've drooled at Westminster's height.
It boils down to recruiting, the four-letter word of high school hthlet-
As Port St. Joe coach Chuck Gannon noted last week, the Tiger
Sharks ar, a' homegrown bunch.
Private schools such as the 2A finalists, For Lauderdale Westminster
or Florida Air, a military academy near Orlando, can, under the guise of
providing scholarships or other assistance; lure athletes from across city,
county, state and. in some cases, global Borders.
Which is nothing new. It is how the game is played in Florida scholas-
Particularly when;, as happened: several years ago, powerful lawmak-
ers.' with students:in private schools, re-structure the Florida High School
Activities Association to do their, and their constituents'; bidding.
The effect for small public schools, however, is to ,simply re-stack the
deck against them.
Unfortunately. rural public schools don't command the same well-
heeled support in Tallahassee to take on the FHSAA as the moneyed pri-
vate schools seem to enjoy.
.It's time for the FHSAA to cast, the private schools out on their own
and let them bite each other instead of feeding on the small public
FHSAA rules should not harbor athletic factones as the NCAA does
in football or basketball.
These are kids for crying out loud.
Asking the Port St. Joes to compete against private schools whose
missions dedicate deep resources to championship sports teams ic akin
to forcing Gull Coast Community College to fight its way through the
Atlantic Coast Conference to win a championship.
Which only makes the Tiger Sharks' run of titles in the mid-to-late
1990s that much more remarkable.
This year the Tiger Sharks reversed a 7-8 start to win 20 games and
make their ninth-straight trip to the Final Four.
That thev. or Hamilton County. did not earn the opportunity to bring
home a trophy because a pair of deep-pocketed pnvate schools stood in
the way is something for the FHSAA to hang its head in shame about. not
the Tiger Sharks.
The FHSAA has deemed Lakeland the only court in town when it
comes to state basketball championships.
That doesn't mean. however, that the FHSAA has made'it a level play-
And for the Tiger Sharks that 's not an excuse, but a simple fact.

Sometimes people subjected to
emotional stress unconsciously try
to reduce tensions by grinding or
rubbing their teeth at night, a prac-
tice known as bruxism. This harms
the biting surfaces by causing unnat-
urally rapid wear. The uneven wear
on the teeth, in turn, may interfere
with the alignment of the upper and
lower jaws, resulting in bad bite or
malocclusion. If stress is the major
cause of TMJ syndrome, profession-

ment may be needed to correct the
condition and eliminate the pain.

Patient investing includes the

companies that are considered

as companies agree to change
accounting practices and re-sub-

will show a sudden change in
their profitability. -Ideally, the

It's important to regularly
review your asset allocation to
ensure it remains' consistent with
your financial objectives and risk
tolerance. Having reviewed your
portfolio allocation, you can then
refine your research to focus on
specific stock selections. While
the overall market may continue
to stagnate, it is still possible to
create a portfolio of strong compa-
nies poised 'for growth in the years
ahead. In fact, some innovative
market leaders actually increased
ip value over the past year. These
companies found new ways to
grow and build business in an
otherwise flat economy.
Other companies faced a
tougher year, but benefited from a'
steady cash flow- and minimal
debt. Their long-term perfor-
mance and strong defensive man-
.agement may be* enough to
convince investors to hold on."

companies, most obviously, air-

they may still have the same char-
acteristics that attracted investors

Chris grew up down the street from me,
I didn't know him real well.
I wish I had known him better,
those that did said he was swell.
A guy full of life and laughter,
two fine little boys and a wife.
At 35, he sure was foung
to have to leave this life.
He wasn't engaged in battle at the time,
but'that's what he wap training to do.
Any way you look at.it, folks.
he.died for me and you.
He put his life on the line
every time he got in a plane.
He did it to keep America free
and not let terrorists reign.
Chris was a good kid growing up,
and as a man withstood the test.
a Which only proves to me,
God. takes the very besl.
Pat and Mike I'm sure it hurts,
but you have to be proud; too.
Not everyone has a son like Chris,
be thankful il was you.
Goodbye Christ, you're in goo company,
the top of the line I'd say.
You can fly first class forever'
and never have to pay.

Irish Potatoes Good Choice
for North Florida Gardens
When planted in the late winter or
early spring (February to 'March
10), 100 pounds of seed should
produce 10 bushels or more of
potatoes. Use certified seed potato
where possible. Avoid table stock
potatoes for planting stock as you.
may get a poor variety or one that
will not sprout. Each seed piece
should be cut into. a two-ounce
size and should' have two or more
eyes. The cut seedpiece could be
dusted with a fungicide such as'
captain to prevent decay. '
For planting. it is best to first
make a raised bed about six
inches high and 1-2 feet wide. If
several rows are to be planted.
space these rows 36-42 inches
apart in the garden. Then open a.
seed lurrow 3-4 inches ddep down
the center of the row. Place the
seed pieces into the furrow at 8-
12 inch intervals. Cover and water
the freshly planted rows.
When preparing the bed,'
make sure you have used liberal
amounts of' fertilizer. 1 quart of
10-10-10 fertilizer per 50 feet of.
row, space. Sidedress .potatoes
twice, three weeks apart, with one
pound of 10-10-10-10 per 50. feet of
row space. .
Blind tubers are not an
uncIommon potato production
problem. Let's consider a typical
experience- a Florida gardener

ha% e a look at the seed pieces.
'The pieces had sprouted. but
the plants weren't growing the

sprouts were short. about .vto t':
three inches long. 'There \as a
small young tuber at the end of
each one. However, there was no

without tops. As I said, it's a fairly "
common problem in home gar-
dens throughout .North Florida.
We probably would first think that
this problem results from some
kind of plant disease. But, it isn't
caused by fungi, bacteria, or any
kind of parasitic organism. The
problem actually starts inside the
seed pieces themselves, and
seems to be caused by an abnor-
mally high concentration of cell
Seed potatoes should be
stored in a cool, dark place-not'a
warm one. This helps prevent
sprouting. However, if the storage
temperature gets too high, and
sprouting does occur, just leave
the sprouts alone-don't remove
Your best bet is to buy fresh
seed pieces at a garden center.,
Then plant the seed quickly in
warm, moist soil not cool, dry soil.

fruits' forming on ,the tops of

Fungicides wo rk by prevent-

When you notice the first
signs 'of, fungus disease-usually
leaf spots or blight-you can be
fairly sure that the affected plants
have been infected for at least
three days 'and perhaps as long as
two weeks. Symptoms of bacterial
leaf spots and downy mildews
usually appear three to ten days
after infection. Other leaf diseases
have incubation periods of from
seven to ten days in some cases as
long as from ten to fourteen days.
Generally, the longer the
incubation period, the slower a
disease spreads, and the more
easily it can be controlled.
Obviously, then, diseases that
have short incubation periods,
such as bacterial blights, and
'downy. mildews, are the most dif-
ficult to control.
Other variables, such as
weather conditions, cultural con-
trols, fungicide toxicity, and spray

Straight To The Woman's Heart
When' it comes to matters of
the heart, what women don't
know really can hurt them-or
Cardivascular disease, also
known as CVD, is the leading
cause of death among US women,
killing approximately twice as
many American females per year
as cancer. Half of all women will
die from it. Yet fewer than 10 per-
cent of women are aware it's their
primary health risk.
Men have their first heart
attack and show signs of heart
disease 10 to 20 years earlier than
women, which is probably why so
many women tend to think of
heart disease as a male condition.
However, nothing could be further
from the truth. Women are still
very likely to get this life-threaten-
ing'condition. And what's worse,
they may not be as accustomed as
men to recognize the signs of a
heart attack before serious dam-
age has been done.-
Women need to be especially
mindful of their cardiovascular
health after menopause. Until
then, experts believe the estrogen
females produce keeps their cho-
lesterol lower, which may afford
them temporary protection from
heart attacks and heart disease.
That's not to say that a pre-
menopausal woman can't have a
heart attack 6i- get CVD. Women
who are past their childbearing
years need to be especially con-
scious of their heart health, and
call 911 or get to the emergency
room immediately if they're
exhibiting any signs of a heart
attack or stroke.
Although chest pain. squeez-
ing or fullness is the most com-
mon sign of a heart attack,
research suggests that women
and men may experience this pain
in different ways. Women are
more likely ,to describe their pain
as being in the shoulder, upper
back, neck and jaw than directly
in the center of the chest.
Less common heart attack
symptoms include unusual stom-
ach or abdominal pain. nausea or
dizziness, difficulty breathing,
heart palpitations, cold sweat, or
even unexplained anxiety, weak-
ness or fatigue.
Smokers are two to four times
more likely to have a heart attack
than nonsmokers. In addition,
tobacco use can increase' a per-
son's risk of getting CVD when it's
combined with other risk factors
for heart disease.
Higher levels of cholesterol
increase a person's risk of heart
disease. which is why women of
all ages need to exercise and care-
fully monitor their fat intake, and
get their cholesterol checked reg-
Women who are overweight.
particularly women with extra
weight around the waist, are
prime candidates for heart dis-

tors. Extra weight strains the
heart and increases blood pres-
sure and cholesterol.
Walk or run, ride your bike or
pursue any other form of exercise
you enjoy. Even a few hours of
moderate walking a week can
reduce a woman's risk of getting
heart disease by 30 to 40 percent.
Strokes, also known as brain
attacks, are another form of CVD,
and like heart attacks, time is of
the essence if you suspect you're
having one. Call 911 immediately
if you or someone you know sud-
denly experiences any of the fol-
lowing: weakness or numbness of
the face, arm or leg; confusion,
trouble speaking or understand-
ing; dizziness, difficulty walking
or loss of balance or coordination;
severe headache with no explain-
able cause; and difficulty seeing
in one or both eyes.
Although most women's car-
diovascular problems don't show
up until after menopause, heart
disease actually begins when peo-
ple are in their teens and 20s.
With that in mind, it's never too
early to begin a healthy regimen of'
diet and exercise.

March is Seagrass
Citing the importance of sea-
grass and the increasing risks
that seagrass communities face,
Governor Jeb Bush recognized
March, 2002 as Seagrass
Seagrasses are flowering
grasses that live underwater and
are found in estuaries, lagoons
and shallow, open shelves off
They act as a filtering system
for nutrient run-off and helps to
stabilize bottom sediments.
"Florida is home to the largest
seagrass meadows in the world,"
said Department of Environmen-
tal Protection Secretary David B.
Struhs. "But, every seagrass bed
throughout Florida shows some
sign of damage and propeller
scarring, taking its toll on not only
the environment, but on our econ-
omy as well."
The seagrass community
serves ats a critical nursery for
commercial fish and shellfish, a
multi-million dollar industry in
Florida seagrasses also
attract divers, snorkelers and
swimmers from around the world,
and support sea turtles, manatees
and other wildlife at various
stages of their development.
In 1998, the Seagrass
Outreach Partnership, a Florida
Keys-based coalition that includes
local, state and federal agencies,
conservation groups, and com-
mercial and recreational fishing
groups, was formed to bring
awareness about the impact that
damaged seagrasses have on
Florida and Florida boaters.
Some of the adverse effects of
boating in seagrass beds include
damage to vessel engines, hulls
and propellers when a vessel runs
aground in seagrass or shallow
bottom habitat; gouging of sea-
grasses by propellers damages the
blades and underground roots of
Seagrasses require anywhere
from tWro to 10 years to recover
froin propeller damage, and dam-
ages to seagrass habitats are sub-
ject. to both federal and state
fines. Fines for seagrass damage
'in the .Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary are $100 per
incident under one square yard of
damage, and $75 for each addi-
tional square yard up to 10
square yards. A grounded vessel
can be charged up to $100,000

Florida's seagrasses visit the web-
