by Tim Croft
DeEtta Smallwood was mildly
curious as her husband, Clay. left
the house Tuesday morning
dressed a little more nattily than
his usual jeans and casual shirt.
He had "an important meet-
ing that morning" was the only
clue Smallwood's husband was
willing to offer.
That meeting was with Gulf
County school officials and it con-
vened inside Smallwood's fourth-
grade classroom at Port St. Joe
Elementary.
Armed with red roses, a bal-
loon and card. county School
Board members. along with
Smallwood's husband. son. pnn-
cipal and fellow fourth-grade
teachers, gathered to officially
honor her as Gulf.County Teacher
of the Year for 2003.
I' was completely surpnsed,"
Smallwood said while trying to
regain her composure from the
shocking interruption.
By the way. the kids didn't
mind the disruption They were
smack in the middle of a math
test.
Smallwood was selected the
county's Teacher of the Year from
among four other finalists: Chris-
tine White of Port St. Joe High,
Elizabeth Howell from Port St. Joe
Middle School. Lon Price of
\Vewahitchka Elementary and
Laura Colaninno from
Wewahitchka High School.
She was chosen after a panel
of judges, using a point system,
reviewed papers w\\Ttten by each
teacher, a videotape prepared by
each instructor and watched each


teacher in the classroom.
Smallwood will now represent
the county in Orlando when the
Florida Teacher of the Year is
selected in June.
-She is very well-deserving,"
said Tim Wilder. pnncipal at Port
St. Joe Elementar.. "She is one of
those teachers that children
respect. She grabs the students'
attention when she walks in the
classroom.
"Her patience. her discipline,
her compassion with the kids is
excellent. Her rapport with par-
ents is outstanding. I've never
heard a bad word about her.
"Everything you'd want in a
teacher, she epitomizes."
Smallwood is also eqvdence
that life's crossroads provide
paths to personal growth and
accomplishment.
Having earned a nursing
degree in 1976. Smallwood found
herself substituting at Port St.
Joe Elementary in the rrmid 80s as
her children grew.
Given the close proxmrruty to
Flonda State University and the
chord teaching had struck in her,
Smallwood decided to return to
school to earn her degree in ele-
mentary education.
"It was one of those cross-
roads in life.* Smallwood said.
-What do you want to do with
your life? Where do you want to
go from here?"
"It was a challenge. but I like
challenges."
Shrugging off concerns about
being the 'grandmother" in class.
Smallwood soon discovered she
was in her element.


She adheres to the principle
that the "classroom must be the


one place that offers a safe haven
of acceptance, stability and con-

Buckhorn Landfill Location


Jefferson Award


Ken


PluM ley


Named

by Tim Croft
Five years ago Ken Plumley
embarked on a medical mission to
Nicaragua with a group of doctors.
and other medical professionals.
It wasn't too long before the
group stopped making the trip.
Now, Plumley can't stop.
After eight trips to the impov-
erished Central American country
Plumley begins his. ninth jour-
ney Friday -bringing tens of thou-
sands of dollars in medical sup-
Splies, Plumley received a tangible
reward of his own last week.
The physician's assistant who
'has worked at the Wewahitchka
Health Clinic for 12 years was one.
of five Northwest Florida recipi-
ents of this 'year's Jefferson
Awards, which honor "individuals
who perform great public service."
Plumley was also selected
from among the five winners to
represent the Panhandle in June
when a national honoree is select-
ed in Washington
The Jefferson Awards, spon-
sored locally by WMBB-13 in
Panama City, are part of the
American Institute of Public
Service in Washington D.C.
The institute was founded
more thari three decades ago by,
among others, Jacqueline
Kennedy Onassis to recognize
outstanding public servants, said
Cerise Roberts of WMBB.:
WMBB-13 is one of some 80
media outlets around the country
which sponsor local awards.
Nearly 90 local individuals
were nominated this year during
the six-week nominating period,
Roberts said.
After the field was winnowed
to around 30, a select panel of
judges, using a point system
based on various factors, further
trimmed the number to arrive at


Ken Plumley, center, with Talgy (right), a Nicaraguan girl he
adopted and her best friend, Anna Rosa.


five award winners.
Plumley's selection was in
recognition of his' work with
orphans in Nicaragua.
It began in 1997 when Plum-
ley heard a doctor in the emer-
gency room at Gulf Coast Hospital
in Panama City, where Plumley
works one day' a week, talk about
an upcoming medical mission to
Nicaragua.
The trip turned out to. be a"
"life-changing" journey.
"If you would take one trip
there you would see why,". Plum-
ley said. "When I get back I can't
even talk about it for three or four
days. The poverty, it's so sad.
"I used to think, I'm not going
to do anything unless I knew
what was in it for me. But at one
point I just felt, let's not take but
give. That's when you start feeling
good about yourself."
As limited contacts in the for-
eign land constrained the doctors
to only major cities, the group
gradually dissolved.
Plumley, however, was
resolved to make a difference, no
matter how small, to the people of
Nicaragua.
"I just kept going back,"
Plumley said. "I made contacts
and now I go where nobody wants
to go. To the villages where there


is no electricity or running water."
What he has seen has all too
often been heartbreaking.'
"The poverty, it is awful," he.
said. "They stand in line for six
hours just to get cold medicine.
They deteriorate in the hospital
because they can't get their medi-
cine."
His travels ultimately took
Plumley. to Hogar Alegria, an.
orphanage for girls'four to 21.
Not all the girls are, per se,
orphans, Plumley said. In many
case their parents, are simply too
poor to afford to feed, clothe and
shelter them.
He adopted a child, Talgy and
was adopted in turn by Talgy's
best friend, Anna Rosa, and
Talgy's sisters.
Eventually, Plumley adopted
the whole orphanage. In the past
several years he has delivered
some $50,000 in medical sup-
plies, much of it donated by drug
companies and clinic patients.
He's also' spent some $25,000
of his own money, not to mention
his time, caring for the girls of
Hogar Alegria.
That care goes beyond medi-
cine to include food 350 kilo-
grams of chicken on his last visit
(See Jefferson on Page 3A)


Asbestos was used for years
as a fire proofing and insulating
product, even many of the homes
in this area were. and are cur-
rently. covered by asbestos shin-
gles. Since being identified as a.
knownT carcinogenic, asbestos has
become an extremely closely mon-
itored substance of concern in the
health world.
When 'Marion Hough brought
out during Tuesday's county com-
mission board meeting. docu-
ments stating that asbestos had
been dumped In Buckhorn
Landfill in Gulf County, the board
and those present began to
respond to-her statements.
Assistant Road Department
Superintendent Louie Flowers
shed' some light on the subject;
when' he stated that the sub-
stance was handled with great
caution when placed at the land-
fill. Furthermore, a former St. Joe
Paper Company employee present
at the meeting had first hand
knowledge of. how the asbestos
was handled and transported
from the mill site in the mid to
early '80's. He shared that infor-
mation during an interview after
the board meeting. "
Flowers told the board
asbestos was-placed in a lined
area in-the northwest corner of
the landfill and that the sub-
stance arrived at the landfill
encapsulated in plastic contain-
ers. Its placement was monitored
and recorded at the site as
required by the Department of
Protection (DEP).' Commissioner
Billy Traylor pointed out that the
county also is required to contin-
Sue monitoring the entire site as
part of DEP requirements.
Asbestos was removed from
boiler pipes at the mill by a certi-
fied asbestos removal team.
According to the former mill
employee, the team completely
enclosed the removal site, filtered
the air, .removed and container-
ized the asbestos, properly loaded
and then transported the sub-
stance. This entire process was
done according to DEP guidelines
and as closely monitored.
OTHER ITEMS OF BUSI-
NESS
*Chief Administrator Don
Butler expressed concern over
memos received from Comm.
Nathan Peters, Jr.'Butler assured
the board that all five commis-
sioners received notification and
correspondence from his office at
the same time in an effort to
answer concerns voiced by
Commissioner Peters about not


receiving some documents, he
added that a complete fax activity
report would verify efforts to send.
. the information, but the line is
frequently busy for extended peri- .
ods of time.
Peters insisted the' line stays
open and questions the machine's
operational status.
Butler noted that if that's the
problem, it should be replaced. He
also asked for efforts to 'work
through problems directly.
*The board received a .com-
pleted copy of the Port Master
Study from'h Port Authority
Chairman Nolan Treglown.
Commissioners also unanimously
passed a resolution supporting
the purchase of the former mill
site' from Smurfitt-Stone


Container by the Port Authonrity.
Chief Administrator Don
Butler. informed the board that
the Cape San Blasbike trails and
roadway project was on the FDOT
schedule for 2004.
*Board attorney Tim Mec-
arland notified commissioners
that efforts were going well to get
at-large voting back in place. He
said the matter was how close to
going back before the federal
court. Gulf is currently represent-
ed by single-member districts.
#. The board agreed to adver-
tise to receive bids for Phase I of
Gaskin Park and Highland View'
stormwater drainage projects--
both of which are being worked
through grant funds.


PSJ and County Talk


About Annexation Issues


Port St. Joe and Gulf County
Commissioners met in special
session Monday afternoon at the
old Gulf County Courthouse in
Wewahitchka to discuss plans in
the works by Port St. Joe commis-
sioners.
The two groups have'had fric-
tion over this 'issue in the past,
but were relatively open-minded
throughout discussionss Monday
Sas they hashed out concerns and
differences over the proposed
annexation plan. the plan, as
reported in last Thursday's edi-
tion of The Star, calls for an exten-
sion of Port St. Joe's city limits
along Highway 98 in front of
Highland View, including water-
side, properties all the .way to
WindMark Beach Subdivision.
Mayor Frank Pate explained
that the properties comprises a
contiguous line along the bayfront
to Windmark and property owners
had agreed to the voluntary
annexation plan.
Commission Chairmanr
Carmen McLemore asked several
questions concerning the logis-
tics, impact on the county and
advantages the county might or
might not have through annexa-
tion of the property.
Pate referred back to an
agreement the two parties had'
worked on in August 2001which
addressed county concerns.
'The city agreed to stipulations
requiring:
*Gulf County's comprehen-
sive growth management plan to


remain in place;
Following. Gulfs subdivision
ordinance #98-09;
*Contract with county to
administer planning issues within
the city;
*Cooperation with county for
loss and potential loss of revenue
generated by fire tax levies in the
St. Joe Fire Control District;
*Provision of impact fee on a
per lot basis for future subdivision
of land inside tle city that
impacts water systems;
*Agreement to address landfill
issues;
*Developers to contribute
toward public shelters for post
storm events;
*Beach accesses as develop-
ments occur.
DOES NOT INCLUDE
HIGHLAND VIEW
One of the questions that sur-
faced'was how this would impact
the Highland View community.
City attorneys Russell Scholz
and Tom Gibson explained that
no plans were being made to
annex that area. Furthermore, it
could only be accomplished if the
residents and property owners in
the area wanted it to happen.
Attorney Gibson said it would
take a referendum vote by both
Highland View and Port St. Joe
residents in order for that to
occur. Neither group was of the
opinion that Highland View resi-
dents remotely wanted to be part
of the city.

Hindsight Is 20/20


Foresight Is Better


I received this e-mail from Ralph Roberson recently and thought it
might be a good follow-up to the tid-bit two weeks ago about Alec
Baldwin's comments.
Do you think just being short of 15 years is a little too late to listen?
At a lecture the other day they played an old news video (1987) of Lt.
Co. Oliver North testifying at the Iran-Contra hearings during the Reagan
Administration. There was Ollie in front of God and country getting the
third degree, but what he said was stunning!
. He was being drilled.by some senior senator,,"Did you not recently
spend close to $60,000 for a home security system?" Ollie replied, "Yes,
I did, sir."_
The senator continued, tying to get a laugh out of the audience,
"Isn't that just a little excessive?"
"No, sir," continued Ollie.
"No? And why not?" the 'senator asked.
"Because the 'lives of my family and I were threatened, sir."
'Threatened? By whom?" the senator questioned.
"By a terrorist, sir," Ollie answered.
"Terrorist? What terrorist could possibly scare you that much?"
"His name is Osama bin Laden. sir." Olie replied.
At this point thesenator tried to repeat th'e name. but couldn't pro-
nounce it, which most people back then probably couldn't. A couple of
people laughed at the attempt. Then the senator continued. "Why are
you so afraid of this man?" the senator asked. '
"Because, sir, he is the most evil person alive that I know of," Ollie
answered.
"And what do you recommend we do about him?" asked the senator.'
"Well, sir, if it was up to me, I would recommend that an assassin
team be formed to eliminate him and his men from the face of the earth."
The senator disagreed with this approach, and that was all that was
shown of the clip.
If anyone is interested, the senator was none other than Al Gore.
Imagine if he were president right now.
Ralph received the note from'a friend and passed Lt on-Now. tell me.
who looks like the dummy in this story? .
I do know that hindsight is 20/20. but I'm thankful we have at least
a few folks around that understand the importance of hang a reason-
ably good; grasp on foresight. .

The Closet Door's Ajar
Nosy Rosie O'Donnell has decided the state of Florida needs to get in
step with time as far as allowing-adoptions by homosexual couples.
I've never caught her TV show. never heard her talk, never read one
of her books, and I can't say I've even ever had a desire to do any o fthe
above. After reading some of the news reports on her most recent plight
in life and her partnering preferences I think it's safe to say we probably
don't travel in the same circles.
Rosie has recently come out of the closet and announced that she is
a lesbian. That wasn't enough for Rosie. though. Seems she decided to
purchase newspaper advertisement in several Florida papers saYing
Florida needs to expand our children's choices. Specifically. of course.
she's looking to influence Flonda's adoption laws favorably toward
homosexual couples who can't currently adopt in the state.
I'm not going to waste my time trying to figure out Rosie. She's a big'
girl and if she wants to come out of the closet that's OK by me. ,While
she's coming out, though, the rest of the country doesn't really need her
help to keep their closets in order. .
I hope that the courts and legislators of the state will continue to '
protect children up for adoption from over-exposure to unnatural family
units.
Rosie vowed to spend all her fortunes fighting Florida on this issue
if that's what it takes.' .
,Maybe if she does she will go back into the closet and close the door
behind her...

SHunker Down With Kes byKesleyColbert



Ii The Cornerstone Has No Yolk


There's, a lot of things that I
don't understand about Easter.
You take, for instance, a.
bunny rabbit. Ponder on that bor.a
while. And then go back and read
the last few chapters of Luke, or'


John. or Matthew.
[ can't for the life of me find a
wild hare in, there anywhere! I
know those disciples gathered
arburld Jesus in that upper room
for a last meal. You don't sup-
pose....
The next question you've got to
ask yourself is Why eggs?. Who
could (or did) come up with the
idea htiat coloring eggs-was a suit-
able way to prepare for and cele-
brate Easter? I wonder if it had
something to do with Peter and the.


rooster crowing? Perhaps the prac-
tice descended from the egg Judas
laid....
I know we tend to "grow the
story" as time passes. If we had
two bunnies last year. well, we nat-
urallv "got to have" thirteen this
year. And there's so many eggs
today we had to "invent" Easter-
baskets to the custom to hold 'em
all. Listen, I knew little kids when
I was growing' up that got so
caught up in. the spirit of things
they thought the eggs came from

An Invitation For A Bubblebath *


THIS IS TOO GOOD to let
slide. Even though I have used up
my. allotted two columns on my
birthday, something has come ,up
which is too delicious to pass up._
Me and Spring's inauguration
celebrated on the same, day;
which, by the way, was a-beautiful
day. .It was warm--in the '"pper
70s-and the sun was shining all
day long. People were swimming at
the beach and all was well with the
world.
What I have to tell you about,
is two birthday cards I received.
One was from my veteran
brother-in-law, Jack Williamson,
from out in Spokane, Washington.
Jack is a retired veteran who
settled in Washington to take
advantage of its outdoor life. He
lives and breathes hunting and
fishing, 24 hours a day. *
He was an airman- back in my
Georgia-living days, stationed at
Robins Air Force Base. He married
my 'sister-in-law while he- was'
there and I loaned him my car-a

with my wife in the tub, to keep me

None of them even remotely
invited me for a bubble, bath, sin-
gle or multiple!
I guess it is just the thought
that counts, like so many other
invitations.:
To say -I was surprised is
putting it mildly. If it had been an
invitation to go out -and eat, I
wouldn't have given it a second
thought ..but, a bubble bath?

BACK TO JACK, once more
with a short story. I told you he.
was an outdoorsman, well let me
tell you just how much he was an
outdoorsman.
One time we went on a hunt-
ing and camping trip in the,
swamps on the banks of the
Ocmulgee River.
We set up camp for the four'of
us: me, Jack, another brother-in-
law, and a friend who owned the
squirrel dog.
We cut down bamboo reeds to
serve as a mattress to lay our
sleeping blankets on.


That night -as twe lay dowh
around a huge camp fire, shooting
the bull, all of a sudden. Jack
jumped up and swiped something
with his hat. He slapped a snake
out of his,bed and into the fire. :'
We thought the snake had
been burned to death and every-
body lay back down. and settled in
to go to sleep.
In a little while, Jack slapped
his hat again ,- then again.
Finally, he said; "well, if ydu will be
still, you can spend the night down
in those warm bushes!"
The next morning, as Jack
was shaking out his blanket, the
snake, once again, fell' out on .the
grotind!. ,, .
'Jackihad slept the entire night
with a two-foot-long water snake
sleeping in the reeds which made
up his mattress.
I, don't know, to this day,
-whether Jack was all that brave,
didn't pay attention to snakes, ora
just too dang lazy to get up and
shake him out again!

Have you ever cogitated on
exactly when or where or who
decided that plain eggs weren't
good enough? We have to dye 'em
now for them to count as Easter
eggs! I know Lydia. who grew up in
Thyaura and helped the apostle
Paul kick off his Macedonia carnm-
paign, was pretty big on the cbl6r
purple. Maybe she got the' whole
thing started.

tell you. we were dressed to meet
God! We would get there before the
truck with the folding chairs I had
to help unload and try to keep the
dew off my new Buster Browns. at
the same time!
You know how the Buster
Brown shoes got associated .with
Easter? That's an easy one. They
come straight from the Devil him-

they were two sizes too big on the

"I believe this will make a dif-
ference," Plumley said. "I've done
well in my life. Money isn't every-
thing. It's timeito pay back."
In page after page of pho-
tographs in an album, it is evident
that the tall salt-and-pepper
haired American has been
embraced as a de facto citizen of
the some of the tiny villages in
Nicaragua.
"These people are famous for
bringing soup to you," Plumley
said of the exotic concoctions _
"iguana soup? he has received on
his journeys.;


"And when they bring. it,
they'll stand and wait until you
eat it."
Plumley himself waits,
patiently hoping that more will
hear of his crusade'and join.
"I would like for others to get
involved," he said. "I love -the peo-
ple.
"And that's why it is great to
be nominated (for the Jefferson
Award), it expands the word."
The word is already leaking
out. There are the patients and
medical professionals who, upon
hearing of his efforts, donate
medicine and medical supplies.
And on his ninth trip at 13


days the longest he has undertak-
en he'll be accompanied by two
Wewa High youths with an itch to
help.
"They've been on church mis-
sion trips before," Plumley said.
"They are good Christians and
said they'd, love to go there and
help."
So, each secured a passport
and held fund-raising events to
accrue the roughly $1,200 they
needed for the trip.
Such actions reflect the sim-
ple message Plumley extends con-
cerning his work,, one he hopes
the Jefferson Award will help him
trumpet.
"Get involved and give," Plum-
ley said succinctly.

Oscar Redd Named Gulf's



Courage Award Recipient


by Tim Croft
Oscar Redd can readily
divide his life into two eras: pre-C
and post-C.
C, as in cancer, the six-letter
word that instills shock and dread
in hundreds of thousands every
year.,
"I was scared," Redd, 60, said
of the day 11 years ago when he
learned he had small-cell lung
cancer.
"Not knowing what to do or
what's going to happen. It was
rough there for awhile."
However, as this year's Amer-
ican Cancer Society "Relay For
Life" dawns it will be held April
12-13 at Lake Alice in Wewahitch-
ka Redd personifies a cancer
survivor.
He has crawled through, a
long dark tunnel and somehow
emerged on the other side.,
"I've been lucky," Redd said.
"Many people don't survive
(small-cell lung cancer). It
responds to treatment, but it
tends to come back.
"A lot of the doctors -didn't
think I'd make it. They say I'm a
walking miracle."
There were times, though,
that the miracle was anything but
upright.
There was surgery, 38 radia-
tion treatments I and chemothera-
py. A back injury undercut his
progress(
In all, Redd missed roughly
two years of work and spent
countless days roiled in agony
from the debilitating invasion of
powerful drugs and treatments.
"Radiation didn't get me so
bad, but. after chemotherapy, I'd
get so sick I'd have to crawl on the
floor for a couple of days," Redd
said.
"Even the smell of food, I'd get
so sick. Hamburgers or eggs; peo-
ple would have to eat them away
from me."
With heavy doses of support
from friends, family, co-workers
at Arizona Chemical, not to men-
tion the many prayers aimed his
way, Redd can now be labeled a
survivor.
To do that he had to outwit,


outwork and outlast a pernicious
foe.
The mental aspects of that
battle were as important, Redd
discovered, as physical.
He pored through literature
about his 'cancer, trying to learn
everything he could about his dis-
ease, the stages, the treatments
and the tools available to assist
him in his fight.
"The more you know, the
more it makes you tougher," Redd
said.
"If you give up you know you
are going to die. In order to stay'
here you have to stay positive and
have faith in the Lord. You've got
to keep going."
Redd has done just that. In
addition to work, he is heavily
involved in the community,
including serving on the Gulf
County' School Board.
Additionally, he is free with
his time and energy when 'it
comes to the cause of cancer
research and prevention.
":We rely on him a lot," said
Lisa Williams, chairperson for this
year's Gulf County Relay for Life.
"He's something else."
Last year Redd was awarded
-the Courage Award, bestowed on
a Gulf County cancer survivor for
the efforts on behalf of the fight
against cancer in the community.
"Every year I've participated
(in the Relay for Life) it's made me
stop and think how! fortunate I've
been," Redd said. "When you get
in a tunnel and don't think you
are going to' get out, every day you
have is a blessing.."
The primary goal of the Relay
for Life is to raise funds for cancer
research.
"The more money we raise for
those folks, the better off we'll be,"
Redd said.
Teams ,will circle Lake Alice
for 24 hours beginning 2 p.m.,
April, 12. Williams said there are
currently 18 teams of varying
sizes signed up to participate.
Additionally, and maybe as
crucially, the event raises aware-
ness about the disease, preven-
tion and treatments.

Vigilance, Redd said, can
mean early detection, critical in
fighting any and all forms of can-
cer.
For instance, Redd's cancer
was diagnosed when he went to
the doctor for unusual bleeding.
He told the doctor he hedn't had a
good checkup in five years.
A subsequent chest X-ray as
part of a thorough physical
revealed a small mass in one of
Redd's lungs.
If he hadn't gone to the doctor
for the bleeding, it was very possi-
ble his cancer could have
advanced to a point where recov-
ery wasn't even an option.
"Early detection is a key to
surviving," Redd said, "With as
many things as the American
Cancer Society or the county
offers, even if you don't have
insurance there is some way you
can have it checked.
"Early detection and good
common sense, those are key."
Those, interested in partici-
pating in this year's; Gulf County
Relpy for Life can call Williams at
639-2222.
All but 4 percent of the pro-.
ceeds go towards prevention,
research, detection, patient sup-
port and other programs.

by Ron Isbell

I'm not a fan of country
music., Before you ride me out of
Gulf'County on a rail, let me chew
those words a little for you.
First of all, I am, however, a
fan of people who do like country
music: My lovely wife, Wendy,
included. Especially her.
Country music fans are as
varied as the snowflakes on a
Southwest: Virginia mountaintop
in January. No two are the same.
That alone sets them apart from
the rap fans who seem to me as
homogenous as all twelve white
eggs in a dozen carton at Duren's
Piggly Wiggly. For that matter. I
think all those rap songs are the
same one. They just -ell it over
and over in different CD cases.
And, I'll adrmit, most of us
guys in khakis and blue button-
down oxford shirts and gals in
comfortable slacks and wool
sweaters that still think Barry
Manilow. Neil Diamond, Billy Joelr
and Phil Collins should be given
the opportunity to rule. the uni-
verse probably are pretty much
alike as \well.
But country music fans are
something else. They may be
wearing tight Levis, western shirt.
Acme snakeskins and have a
Stetson perched angularly but
never awkwardly on their head.
And of course be driving a pickup.
Or he,,/she may be seen in a tee
shirt and jeans with three days
road grime from hauling a load of
grapefruit in a coast-to-coast run.
Just %when you think you ve
got country music fais pPigeon-
holed some 17 year-old dressed
like Madonna pulls into the K-
Mart parking lot in a ,Pontiac.
Sunfire convertible :with Willie
Nelson cranked up really loud
and sinain about lost love and'
long roads. Or \oui'1 .hear Garth
Brooks coming from the CD play-
er in a Lexus whose ieiense plate
says -4 A FEE and driven by a
guy in a three-piece suit.
Then you mix in a good dose
of mountain music. rock-a-billy.
spirituals. blues and folk music,
and there probably is no end to
the personality types that call
i country music their own.
I think all our beauracrats in
DC need to cure 'diversity' and
cultural sensitivity' problems is a
good dose lof country music. It
- seems to be a common dominator.
all by itself.
Then there's the music itself.
AMI that 'crin' in your beer lyrics
arnd mornful music that passed


for country music for -a while is
what turned me off. I once knew a
woman whose first husband was
electrocuted, suffered through
three bad marriages and found'
her latest love interest iri her
garage as a suicide victim. That's
no country song. It really hap-
pened. She lived those songs.. And
she believed those lyrics were the
way life is supposed to be.
She wasn't the only person I
knew at the time that was rowing
that same boat. Maybe it was the
time in my own life. Maybe it was
how those 'particular people
would have dealt with their per-
sonal situations even without the
benefit of a cold one and Merle
Haggard. But I blamed the music
for being at the very least an,
influence.
Then. my sons became
immersed in country music. I
heard Garth sing about therodeo.,
Then their was something about
Bubba and. a juke box. And a
group of guys called Little Texas
(that s an oxymoron. 'I've been to
Texas and there's nothing little
about it).
As kids do. they've discarded
,country music for other favorites
since then, but I learned country
music had evolved into something
_beyond, 'Stand By Your
Maaaaaarn I really liked knowing
that Bubba can dance.
Then came our move from
Illinois' corn fields to the Smokies
of East Tennessee. There was
something about seeing Uncle Joe
and the Ramblers or Jack Tubbs
and the Outhouse Five or the
McCoy Family picking' and singing
and cloggin' and fiddlin' live.
Right there on a makeshift stage
at any one of a hundred or more
festivas up and down the Blue
Ridge. Wow!
And it wasn t really about the

music. I still didn't' get chills up
and down my spine from scratchy
fiddle music or five string pickin'.
But it was real. Just like the peo-
ple on the stage. This music had
personality. You could feel. it.
Harry Conick Jr? No. But it was
their music. They owned it but
were happy' to give it to you if
you'd just listen.
This was front porch music.
Shoot, we don't even have a front
porch at our house. Not. many.
'houses do anymore. Just a
"stoop". There's no place for a
neighbor to sit a spell while he-
walks by. No place to cut open a
watermelon on a hot August day -
as much for an invitation for oth-
ers to stop by as for nutntional
value.
lMaybe if there is, really some-
thing wrong with our world today'
it s that we don t have front
porches. We don't have front
porch music.
Maybe I, will look for that
country music station 'on my.
radio today.. '

Craig says it's time to, "start'
your engines"
Flanked by NASCAR race leg-
end A.J. Foyt, U.S.. Senator Larry
Craig, the ranking member of the
Special Committee on Aging,
called upon his colleagues in
Congress and citizens everyw'here
to pitch in and help deliver meals
to the nation's elderly.
"Older Americans are now liv-
ing longer, and nutrition pro-
grams, like the Meals on Wheels
program, help ensure seniors are
living, healthier. Without the ben-
efit of these programs, many
. seniors would not receive the
vital, nutritional food they need'.


Without volunteers, the program
wouldn't function at all, and for
this reason I'm challenging my
colleagues in the Senate and citi-
zens everywhere to help deliver
the food. our senior citizens need.
"It's time to start your
engines!" Craig said.
The ranking member of Aging
Committee made the pitch as the
Meals on Wheels Association of
America met with congressional
leaders arid Assistant Secretary of
Aging Josefina Carbonell in
Washington, DC, to kick 'off the
first-ever national "March for
Meals" campaign.

'March for Meals' effort, the
Meals on Wheels Association has
teamed up nith NASCARs A.J.
Foyt and the Lam' Foyt Harrah's
race team. During March, the
Foyt race team has pledged to
provide one meal for every lap
Lamr' Fort completes. I0 meals
for even' lap he leads. and 10.000
meals for every race he wins.
A.J. Foyt and the Foyt/
Harrah's racing team are pledging
an Identical contribution based on
their team's performance. Last
year over 75 million people
.watched NASCAR events-roughly
37' of the adult U.S. population.
"It is important to recognize
that this program provides much
more than meals to seniors. It
allows them to stay in. their own
homes and communities and to
interact with others.' Craig said.
The "March for Meals' event
was held .in Washington, DC, to
celebrate the 30th'anniversary of
the addition of the Nutrition
Program for the Elderly to the!
Older Americans Act. Since it was
signed in to law, more than six,.
billion meals have been served to
America's frail and needy seniors.
In Craig's- home state of
Idaho, local area agencies on
aging now provide an average of
1,200 home delivered' meals per
day to Idaho seniors, representing
a small part of an important
national effort .which provides
over one million meals to seniors
each day throughout the country.
Sen. *Craig will continue his
efforts to raise awareness about
the importance of senior nutrition
programs by personally present-
ing home delivered meals to
seniors in mTwin Falls, Idaho.

Racin' Is In


His Blood.....


by Tim Croft
The fuel thtt fires Mike Put-
man's racing dive seeps through
his veins like motor oil through an
engine block;
Call it that indefinable urge to
push pedal to metal and bumper
to bumper in order to reach the
checkered flag first.
It is the thrill of the chase, the
need for speed that is only sated
on the asphalt and dirt ovals in
towns large and small around the
country.
"I love to race," Putman said.
"One way or another. I'm going to
race somewhere every year.
"It's in my blood."
Literally. ,
Putman said his granddaddy
raced the. tracks in Tennessee.
passing his passion for racing' on
to his son, who in turn passed it
on to his son, Putman.
Putman. waited, not always
patiently, for his chance behind
the wheel. Finally, it arrived with,
his first driver's permit.
"I had to wait my turn," Put-
man said. "I had to wait until I
91 was old enough."
His initiation came in mini-
stocks, where he quickly won four
races and outgrew classification.
"My granddaddy said, 'It's
time to move up,' Putman said.
He moved a step up in each of
the next several years before
arriving at the sportsmen and late
model classifications.
Along the way, Putman has
taken the checkered flag in 296
feature races. By Putman's calcu-
lation, that's more than half the
features he's run over his 14-year
career.
Additionally, Putman has
snagged .three national champi-
onships 1996-7. '99 while com-
peting in the late model Southern
All-Star circuit, which races on
tracks from California to Michi-
gan to the Southeast.
The. Alabama native has
recently moved to Panama City to
open his Boss Racing shop and


will compete primarily at Panhan-
dle tracks, including the North
Florida Motor Speedway in
Wewahitchka.
"This year we're just running
local cars," Putman said. "We'll go
to Milton, Wewa, Cottonwood
some.
"With the expense of moving
and setting up this shop, we're
just going to run local tracks this .
year."
Putman has high hopes for
the Wewa track, which has
passed through several hands in
recent years. and endured the
rough waters stirred up by fre--
quent ownership changes..
New track owner Ben Watson,
a Cordele, Ga. resident who'trav-
els to Wewa on the weekends, has
invested heavily in the half-mile
track.
"He's spent a lot of money on
the track surface," Putman said,.
"He's spent a lot. of time and
money on the facility) .
"I hope they spend of lot of
time working hard to bring the'
spectators there.
"If you get the spectators
there and the prize money up
there, the drivers will come."
Putman's car reflects the
booming popularity of .motor
sports at all levels.:
Ten years ago it was' almost.
unheard of for cars to sport much
in the way of sponsorship decals
at the Wewa track. What sponsor-
ship there was typically trumpet-
ed automobile products.
Putrtian, though, will race
with backing from an area news-
paper, radio station and soft drink
distributor, as well as an assort-
ment of car, and. car-care prod-
ucts.
"Racing is becoming big over-
all. not just ini NASCAR." Putman
sid. '
Putman said his name and a
resume dotted with three national
championships helped secure his
.sponsorship deals.

Veterans' Burial Benefits Increase Under New Law


Under a new law, the
Department of Veterans JAffairs
will increase reimbursement for
funeral expenses and cemetery.
plots for service-disabled veterans
and provide government markers
for veterans' graves even if fami-
lies already have installed private
markers.


"The modest increases in pay-
ments to veterans' families, and
the additional monuments to our
heroes' service, are steps toward
better acknowledging this nation's
appreciation of its veterans," siad
Secretary of Veterans Affairs
Anthony J. Principi.
The Veterans Educational and


Benefits Expansion Act of 2001
increases the burial and funeral
expense allownace for veterans
who die as a result of a service-
connected disability from $1,500
to $2,000 and the cemetery plot
allowance, for certain other dis-
abled veterans, from $150 to
$300.

SLetters to the Editor ...


Against Junky Trailers in Wewa


Dear Editor,
I would like to address the
article by Tim Croft.(in the March
21st edition of your paper). Mr.
Croft wrote that Wewahitchka is
trying to deal with a "small but
nagging problem with dilapidated
mobile homes." As" a property
owner that has h ad one of .these
ugly, old mobile homes brought in
next door, I'feel that this problem
is anything but "small". Also, I
would like to point out that per-
haps one 'reason people feel that
they can just do what they want is
because our city and county lead-
ers have been "lax" on enforcing
these codes. Furthermore. I would
like to point out that, according to
the statements made by Mr.
Minchew, there are too many
"loopholes" in our existing regula-
tions.
From conversations with Mr.,
Billy Traylor, I ,am told that the
law in Gulf County states that
even on unrestricted property
mobile homes are to be no older
than 1994 and they must meet
Zone 3 hurricane standards. The
law does allow for older trailers to

be moved within the county. Take
a look around at the -mobile
homes being moved into the
Overstreet area. I -feel that there
should also be restrictions on in-
county moving of old mobile
homes and enforcement of exist-
ing laws.
My family came here -from
Georgia with the hopes of having a
home near the beautiful Gulf
Coast. Our dream was to have a
home here and perhaps later, if
necessary, we could sell our home
with a profit. We bought unre-
stricted property but we knew
that Gulf County had laws gov--
erning placement of mobile
homes. We thought (naively) that-
these laws were there to protect-
our investment. We know 'that
Gulf County has been marketing
our area'for growth. Recently, we
have had old mobile homes moved


into the Overstreet area. These
are obviously dilapidated mobile
homes that are much older than
the law allows. From a marketing
standpoint these mobile homes
are a deterrent to expansion.
Please note, I am 'not. anti-
mobile home. I am, however,
against substandard or "junky"
trailers that are eyesores. I would
like the county to make and,
enforce laws that would protect
my and my neighbors' invest-
ments. I feel that the "Grand-
father" laws should be restricted
to one piece of property and not
allow for in-county moving 'of
mobile homes. (In other words, if
a piece of property already has a
mobile home on it, then an up-
grade or replacement can be
made.)
Th nn r i


The law also directs VA to
honor requests for government
markers for veterans buried in
private cemeteries even if their
graves have headstones or mark-
ers furnished at private expense.
Previous law prevented VA from
providing markers in that situa-,
tion. These increased are among
many provisions of Public Law
107-103 that expand other veter-
ans' benefits.
About 9.800 families receive/
funeral expense reimbursement
for service-connected deaths each
year. The $500 increase in the
funeral reimbursement, the first
since 1988, is expected, to
increase the government's cost by
about $5 million a year. This
change applies to deaths on or
after December 1, 2001.
About 90,000 families become
eligible for the plot allowance
annually. The cost of increasing
the amount, which had been $150
since 1973, will be about $13 mil-
lion a year. The higher allowance
wil be paid for deaths on or after
December 1, 2001.
The plot allowance is paid
When a veteran is buried .in a non-
government cemetery. Also, the
veteran must meet one' of three
criteria: the veteran was eligible to
receive VA disability compensa-
tion or a VA pension, was dis-:
charged from military service due
to disability or died in a VA hospi-
tal.
In the past, people who sub-*
mitted VA applications to receive a

government marker had to certify
that the veteran's grave was
unmarked. Some families com-
plained of unfairness because
they could not obtain the govern-
ment's free marker to commemo-
rate the veteran's service if they
had purchased a marker.
Under the new law, the appli-
cant must certify that the marker
will be placed only in a cemetery.:
VA will send the marker only to a
designated cemetery.
The new provision for mark-


ers applies to veterans' deaths on
or after December 27, 2001. By

fit is being used and recommend
whether or not to continue it.

NFS TIack Open Saturday




Florida Motor Speedway near
Wewahitchka opens for the 1 N
season Saturday night. : 1 | j| -3. i


. .. .


Ben Watson is looking for a successful season at North Florida
Motor Speedway.


Thanks For Help
and Welcome
North Florida Speedway own-
ers Ben and Vernette Watson
would like to express their thanks
and gratitude for all the help and
support they have received from
friends, family and local towns-
people in preparing the track for
this season's racing.
The Watson's are from
Cordele, Georgia and travel to
Wewahitchka on weekends work-
ing on getting the half-mile dirt
track ready for racing on March
30th.
Hundreds of dump truck
loads of dirt have been placed 'on
the track. A new weigh scale and
inspection building were con-
structed. Billboards for sponsors
and advertising have been made
on pit row. Clean up and paint
has given the track -a new look.
They not only have dreams of
motor racing but for mud bogging
and go-kart racing. Their goal is to
make North Florida Speedway a
place for families to go year round
for recreation and fun.
There will be bicycle races for
the children weekly. They hope to
have the clowns back this season


making balloons and painting for
the children. They are planning
an Easter Egg Hunt, Halloween
costume contest and many other
activities.
Overall the Watson's would
like to see North Florida Speedway
become a fun place to go for the
entire family and hope to have
enough sponsors and help from
the community to make
Wewahitchka a nice and fun place
to live.
Once more, they say thanks
for all the help and support from
friends and family and to the cornm-'
munity for accepting them to
Wewahitchka.

While he declined a chance to
boast or make predictions con-
cerning the season at Wewa, he
did offer a sly smile wigh,
"I feel we are going to show
people something, new down
here."
If Putman has learned any-
thing while racing nearly half his
29 years, it is that it all comes
down to certain fundamentals.
"It's, about being at the front
every time," Putman said.


Georgia businessman Ben
Watson. who bought the track last
July, has invested heavily in the
facility's infrastructure in. hopes
of ensuring a weekly card of rac-
ing through the end of October.
Watson bnngs to the venture
fondness for racing and, the desire
to turnaround a track that had
fallen on hard times as it passed,
through several operators during
recent years.
"I've always .enjoyed racing,"
Watson said. "It's.been five or six
* years since I raced, but it's always
been something that I enjoyed."
Watson hopes' to turn North
Florida Motor Speedway into
something spectators and drivers.
alike will enjoy.,
He's put in scales and an
inspection area as well as over-
hauling. and refurbishing the pit
areas..
Additionally, there have been.
over 500 loads of dirt laid down
on the half-mile track surface.
Banking has been added to the
entire racing surface.
"We have reworked the whole
track," Watson said. Ben Watson.
"If people will just come out and
see what we've done."
It's evident not only on the
track, but in cyberspace, where
Watson has' established' a Web-
site, www.northfloridamotor-
speedway.com, which provides
new racing rules, a lineup of dri-
vers and updates on the track.
Once the season is under
way, results and driver standings
will be found at the Website.
The track will host a weekly
card of races in a variety of classi-
fications: eriduro, late model
sportsman, super streets, hobby,.
early model (vintage) sportsman,
pure stock, open-wheeled IMCA
cars and two different classes of
four-cylinder machines.
The schedule calls for a fea-
ture race each month highlighting
one of the classifications.. Those
features start Saturday with a 50-
lap $1,000 main event featuring
the late model sportsman class'.
"I hope to have 175-180 cars


each week by year's end," Watson
said, "and I think we will by the
end of the year."
The most pressing need at
this point is re-establishing the
venue as a legitimate racing
attraction and consistent source
of Saturday night fun.
There were too many week-
ends in recent years in which the
gates were locked with the racing
card unfilled.
Watson heard from drivers


Just Northwest of Wewa off Hwy 22


and fans alike that having the
lights on each week will be both
essential and an improvement
over previous operators of the
Wewa track.
"Our biggest thing right now.
is to just be open," Watson said.
"Our biggest goal right,now is to
get people in the grandstands."
The regular gate price is $10
for the grandstands, $20 for the
pits.
Senior citizens can enter for


$5. Beer must be consumed in
the beer garden, keeping the
grandstands alcohol-free. No cool-
ers will be allowed.
In ,celebration of Easter, this
weekend's festivities will. include
a 2 p.m. CST Easter Egg Hunt.'
Gates will open for the racing
at 3:30 p.m. The driver's meeting
will be at 6:30 p.m. with racing to
start at 7 p.m.

Fiddler in the Championship Groove


Jean Etheridge Wins 2nd

Old Time Fiddlers Contest


by Tim Croft
Jean Etheridge picks up her
fiddle, strikes bow to string, clos-
es her eyes and is transformed.
To a time and place when
bluegrass and roots, or mountain,
music ruled the roost in the
household of her childhood.
"My dad played (the fiddle)
when I was little," Etheridge said
of her young life in Shelton's Cor-
ner in Calhoun County.
"When I 'was little the fiddle
was the only thing I could play
and I wanted to play something."
Etheridge can still strike the
right chords, 'evidenced by her
recent win in the senior' division
of the. Landmark Park Old Time
Fiddlers Convention in Dothan,
Ala.
It was the second consecutive
year Etheridge captured the com-
petition, a feat that means that
Etheridge will be ineligible to
compete next year.
There are, apparently, no
three-peats for fiddlers. Etheridge
will' have to be a spectator next
year before she can compete
again in 2004.
Not that Etheridge needs,
another win to stamp her bona
fides as a fluent fiddler.
Two years ago she took first
in the senior division at the annu-
al Bluegrass and Fiddlers Contest
in Robertsdale, Ala.


And, some years ago,
-Etheridge placed third in the'
Florida Fiddlers Association's. ini-
tial state competition.
This despite never learning to
read music, picking up' the fiddle
by tone and sound.
"Most fiddlers are self-
taught," Etheridge said. "They are
not trained, so they don't hold the
fiddle right, they don't hold the
bow right;
"I don't know notes so I just
go by sound. You have to have
that little knack and not a lot of
people have that knack."
Etheridge discovered that'
affinity for the fiddle when she
was just three or four years old.
Her mother would lay the fid-
dle on the bed, Etheridge would
thumb the strings and strum.
As she grew, marriage 'and
raising a' family eclipsed the fiddle
among life's priorities and she did
not pick up the instrument for
roughly 30 years.
But bluegrass made some-
thing of a comeback in the 1970s
and Etheridge decided to raise her
bow once more.
"It took.me awhile to really get
back in the swing," Etheridge
said. "But I was surprised-by how
much I really remembered.
'They say the fiddle is about
the hardest (instrument) to play.
And playing by ear, you never

Playing the fiddle was a family tradition in Jean's family when she was growing up.


know how it will come out."
However, listen to Etheridge
play for a few minutes, her eyes
closed and feet tapping out the
time, and it's clear that the music
.typically coming from her fiddle
sounds mighty fine.
.The fiddle, for the uninitiated,
is a violin, but with a down-home
twist.
'They say a violin you carry in
a case, a fiddle you carry in a'
flower sack," Etheridge said with
a chuckle.
And while a violin is typically
played 'while rigidly following
sheet music or a tune, fiddling is
"kind. of doing your own thing."
The country equivalent of, a
jazz jam. Ethendge said.
To learn a tune from the
stacks of bluegrass, and old-time
music wax she owns. Ethendge
will listen to it again and again.
"I have to learn it in my
head," she said.
The tunes don't take root as
quickly as they once did, but
Etheridge remains a natural,
whether playing "Paris Waltz" or
"St. Ann's Reel". the pieces she
played to win the title in Dothan.
Her evident joy while playing
reflects,. on one\ level., someone
who has mourned the loss of a
piece of their heritage. only to re-
discover it again.
It is that way with bluegrass
and roots music. which has seen
its popularity ebb in. recent
decades only to bounce back to
forefront of American music.
Recent evidence is found in
the soundtrack to the the movie
"0 Brother! Where Art Thou!",
which has been at the top. of the
Billboard charts for months. .
"(That, music) was gone,"
Etheridge said. "It just tickles me
to death to see it come back.
"I love it. It has really made a
. comeback."


What promises to be the most -
significant proposed project in
enhancing the appearance of
Mexico Beach is a series of sched-
uled beautification projects that
Mayor Kathy Kingsland .has
named 'Tom Sawyer's Days".

Trees are an indispensable
part of our environment. They.give
a home, street or commercial site
individuality, beauty and a peace-,
ful quality. And because of their
long life, trees give the surround-,
ing a. sense of permanence and
stability.
Trees, not buildings, are the
best measure of civilized land-
scape, A sense. of time, history.
and continuity are demonstrated
in a community where-trees sur-
vive and, more are regularly
planted. Those sections of our
communities where old trees do
survive are the pride of our towns
and cities. These are areas we
quickly point ouit to visitors and
tourists. Cities that are rich in
trees have a character all their
own, of which the citizens may be
justly proud.
:Most structures can become
visually acceptable in. the land-
scape with the proper use of trees
to frame and. balance them. It is
rare. to find a structure that is.
self-sufficient -without the proper
use of natural vegetation. An envi-
ronment that is good for trees is
good for people.
j. In.addition to-these aesthetic
reasons for having trees there are
also some very, practical ones.,
Trees ,:may :be referred to as
nature's air conditioners. They'
moderate the climate by protect-
ing areas from extremes of wind,
heat, cold, glare and drought.
Trees also purify the air.
While humans and animals con-
sume. oxygen and emit carbon
dioxide. growing trees convert car-
bon dioxide into food and give off
oxygen. .Trees also cool and

humidify the air through, transpi-
ration, the process, of releasing
moisture through leaves into sur-
rounding air. On a hot day,. a
young tree can transpire several
tons of.water. That evaporation
produces a cool in L effect, causing
the air to be cooler under thektree.
Trees, purify water, protect
-xatersheds and prevent soil ero-
sion. Three-fourths of the nation's
water comes from the forested
third of the country. Trees, cush-
ioning the impact of rainfall on
forest floors, and regulate water
flow, so providing a vital link in
the earth's water system.
Trees, reduce highway and
street noise. Solid belts of trees,
with shrub' row plantings, will
help to reduce noise along'highi-
ways and streets.
.Real estate people tell us that
one of the best reasons to plant
good trees is to increase the value
and sales appeal of our homes:
Trees should be a part of the over-
all landscape plan. Whether :a
professional landscape architect,
nurseryman or home gardener
places the tree, it is best to plan
the overall development first, to
avoid costly moving. and other
mistakes. We should remember
that trees are a living investment
that increase in value continually
iI properly placedrand cared for.
Why don't you add to. the beauty
of your community by planting a
tree this year? '

Dear Willie,
On behalf of me and my fam-
ily .1 wish to offer my heartfelt
thanks to you and your staff for
the very touching display of ban-
hers, posters and flags displayed

finish his Navy tour of duty, he
and his family would have found
their way back to St. Joe to live.
Please allow me to also tharik
the wonderful ladies who pre-
pared the delicious meal that was
served at the Senior Center after
the funeral. To quote my brother
who partook-of several plates, "I
haven't tasted food this good since
the last time Mom cooked for me."
Thank you ladies!! Mv family

and delicious food.
A special thanks To the Port
St. Joe Police Department and the'
Gulf County Sheriffs Department
for their professional appearance
and handling of the funeral pro-
cession. Since I now work for a
small city police department it
1 was especially touching to see
these fine young officers and
deputies standing at attention
and rendering a salute as the cas-
ket was carried out of the church..
I could not hold back the tears at-
that point. St. Joe has a right to
Sbe proud of these young men and
!'omen. ,

Michael.A. Guido

When I was a child, li enjoyed
sitting under a railroad trestle and
I'd smile when the shadow of a train:
ran over me. As the shadow of the
train didn't hurt, and the shadow of
a knife can't cut me, so the shadow
of death can't hurt a believer:
That's why the Psalmist said,
"Though I walk throughthevalley of
the shadow of death, I will fear no
evil; for Thou art with me."
Christ died for out sins. On that
first Easter morning He rose bodily
from the.dead. Now He'swith usin
our perplexities to guide us, in our
pains to comfort us, and in our
perils to strengthen us.

the past it was just 8th and 10th.:

to do it the first time through.
additional chances are offered up

Faith Christian School
Has it all!
-Trisha Davidson
Faith Christian School is the
best
It is better than all the rest.
We learn, we study, we pray,
and play.
We learn to follow Christ
each day.
--Josiah Quaranta
Several things we need to
keep in mind as we approach the
end of the month. First is to con-
tinue to bring support for Chris
Robershaw, our missions focus
this month. Secondly, please sign
and return report cards to your
child's teacher this week. Third,
remember that Easter holidays
will begin today, March 28, with a
12 noon dismissal. There will be
no extended school.

Also, remember the Holy
Week services at the Methodist
church at noon today and Friday.
Dr. Taylor will be speaking on
Thursday. School will open again
on April 8.
Have a,safe and restful holi-
day, and take time with your fam-
ily to praise the Lord together for
the wonderful thing that He has
done for us as we celebrate His
death and resurrection.

Seven Ideas for


Your -Tax Refund


By: Andy Wilkinson
Financial Advisor
Thanks to changes in the law
affecting tax rates, many taxpay-
ers are expected to receive larger
tax refunds this year. In fact,
according early filings processed
by the Internal Revenue Service
this year, the average. refund was
$2,210-almost 12 percent higher

Congratulations to Diane'

bonds. your tax refund s potential
for appreciation is significantly\
increased. Purchasing a stock or
mutual fund in this market might
appear to be too nsky for some.
but it is important to keep in mind
the historical performance of
equities-from 1926 through 2000.
the average annual return of the
U.S. equity market was about
10'.\ when adjusted for inflation.
Reduce Debt
6. Because credit card bal-
ances are among the most expen-
sihe forms of consumer debt.
using your tax refund to reduce or
eliminate any outstanding bal-
ances can go a long way in saving
you money that would otherwise
be devoted to interest and finance
charges.
7. If credit card debit is not an
issue, you may want to consider
using the refund to make an extra
payment toward the principal of
your mortgage. Because mort-
gages are often a large. long-term
debt that incurs interest on the
total outstanding principal, a one
or two thlouisand dollar pie-pay-
ment adds up to significant sa\-
ings o:er the life of the loan.
Using your tax refdld with an
eye toward the future may not be
as fun or exciting as spending it
Son a weekend getaway or large
screen TV. but by investing it
carefully or using it to pay down
debt. you'll build a better future.
To determine which of these ideas
rrught be the best for you. contact
