Local Kidney Dialysis Treatment




Could Soon be a Reality In Gulf


by Tim Croft
Dialysis patients in the
Gulf/Franklin area may soon be
able to stop marking their daily
existence by the' mile.
The Gulf County Commission
on Tuesday gave local health offi-
cials approval to enter into final
negotiations on a contract with .a
Pensacola clinic to establish a
dialysis unit in Port St. Joe to
serve patients in Gulf and
Franklin counties.
"It seems like we have (the
framework of) an agreement,":
said county health director Doug
Kent. "We are very close.
"We are 'trying to create a
package for them 'and.if we can
provide that package, they are for
it." ,
Kent was speaking of the
West Florida Medical Center Clin-
.ic, a Pensacola company which
currently operates a rural dialysis
center in Chipley.
Local health officials were


pointed in the direction of the
West Florida clinic by officials at
Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensaco-
la.
The tentative proposal is for
the Medical Center Clinic to oper-
ate a 12-chair facility, capable of
treating 25 patients daily, in the
old county Health Department
building located adjacent to Tyn-
dall Federal Credit Union.
"I'm really excited about this
because I can really feel for these
people," said Dr. Shakra Junejo of
the Franklin County Health
Department.
Junejo has briefed Franklin
County commissioners about the
proposal and said the panel
'expressed support for the con-
cept.,
The package local health olfi-
cials are trying to bring together
includes four central components.
One. was met Tuesday with
County -Commission approval of
the concept.
Second is undertaking the
repairs and renovations neces-
sary to make the old Health
Department building suitable for
the. dialysis clinic and providing
that building to the West Flonda
clinic for at least three "ears.
County commissioners on

Board Reaffirms Hiring;


Acknowledges Mistake


Gulf County commissioners
spent much of tlhe board's regular
meeting time Tuesday evening,
discussing how best to deal with' a
qualification mistake made in the
hiring of Barr Hand as probation
officer. .
Hand, was hired following an.[
interview process after an
employee interview committee
had narrowed the list of
employees to three candidates-'
Mike LaPlante, Victor Minims and
Hand. Commissioners then
selected Hand' for the position
from the short list. '
One .of the requirements for'
the job, which was a part of the
advertised job position, is that the'
applicant have a corrections
officer certificate. As it turns out,
Hand's corrections certificate,was
not current because he had been
inactive in the field for four years.
In order for his certificate to be
reinstated Hand .' would ber
required to fulfill certain-


requirements included' in a'
corrections officer: refresher
course.
When -this was discovered
Hand told t"he .county,
representatives he was not aware
.of this when he applied for the
position and asked the board.to
work with him so that he could
take the required course.
During the board's March
26th meeting the board.
unanimously agreed to allow "
Hand to take the refresher course
and continue to work as county
probation officer on inactive
status until he completed it. The
board was aware at that time of
the advertisement requirement
-but agreed to work through the
matter with Hand.
W Ve goofed, that's the bottom
line," said board chairman
Carmen McLemore.
He wasn't alone though, as
'each of the commissioners
acknowledged, their "boo-boo" as
Commissioner Jerry Barnes
described it.. .
"This hias 'been a total
misunderstanding from
everyone's point of view," said
Comm, Billy Traylor.
,, After much discussion on the
issue and' input from several
people in attendance,e the board
faced the options to either fire
Hand or stick with its previous
Decision. ...
The board voted 4-1 (with'
Chairman McLemore opposing)' to
retain Hand as Gulf County-
Probation, Officer and allow him to
complete the review class to
become recertified as a
corrections officer.
LONG TIME EMPLOYEE
PAY
Board' chairman Carmen
1McLemore called for
commissioners to reward long-
time employees with pay raises
based on number of years the
employees have worked for the
county.
He proposed, that employees
who. have between 15-20 years
with the county receive $1 per
hour pay increase and those with
20 years plus receive $2 per hour.
This includes union employees in
the road department, mosquito
department and public works
department.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
noted that the county's senior
employees deserved the increase.
He pointed out that new
employees in some cases make as

estimated the cost of renovations.

Final Episode Being


Played-It's History
It won't be but just a few weeks and we'll see action tak-
ing place on the demolition of the mill site. I think it's a
mutual feeling throughout our community that the day has
come for the final episode of the old paper mill's life to be
played out.
Like: it or not, a new chapter in history is being penned
for our communities. Many, if not all, facets .of life and
business. in the area were directly or indirectly impacted by
the wheels of industry turning out tons of paper for 60 plus
years.
No doubt, there will be an array of emotions demon-
strated as the giant 'structural steel frame,, pipes, brick,
concrete and machinery are taken down to ground level.
Those emotions will fill the spectrum of opinionated mind s
and probably spur .several debates concerning the past.
present, and future of the site.
Since it's going to take nearly two years to demolish the
old site, we'll all have plenty of time to join in-on these con-
versations as we watch the dismantling occur. During this
process one of the things we need to 'be sure and focus on
is preserving our history.
The mill has played a ltiemendous role in this history
and as the visual reminder is removed other, reminders
must be preserved. A place in the community needs to be
set aside so memorabilia can be catalogued, displayed and
preserved. It won't be long after the mill is removed and all
those years of history will begin to fade,,away with time.
Let's work together on a plan to archive those memories.


Say It"A-Ain't So


I really don't believe the folks atl'Equality Florida read,
or for that matter, care what m$r opinion is on the gay adop-
tion issue. Nor do, I believe they read my thoughts con-
'cerning' Rosie. O'Donnell's personal crusade to bring
Floridians in line with her thinking on the issue.
I got a press release from Equality Florida this week
that says, "Majority of Floridians oppose state ban on gay
adoptions."
Hog wash! I don't believe their statement that 55% of
Floridians favor gay. adoptions.. .Furthermore,' rI've beeni
doming1my -own survey and I'll guarantee you y findings -
contradict those of Equality Florida. Now\, I will confess
that I didn't follow proper protocol in conducting thlF'nIfor-
ial sampling, but hey I was on a tight budget.,
Maybe if an impartial group conducted a similar survey
I could believe the results. In the mean-time it has, become
apparent that a battle is brewifig and Rosie O'Ddnnell is
leading the charge in this numbers game. Senators, legis-
lators, and the governor hold their respective position in
office at the voters' wishes.
The press release states that over 270.000 e-mails have
been sent to the governor and the Department of Children
and Families from the lethimsta'.com website run by the
American Civil Liberties Union. Folks that oppose" homo-
sexual adoption had better circle the wagons if they intend
on stopping this charge. ..
I can totally agree with a portion of one statement in the
article-Adoption decisions should be left to those .with
expertise whose only concern is children's welfare."
The Good Book gives us a pretty good idea of what that
family unit should look like. While we can't legislate moral-
ity we can protect the innocent until they are old enough
and mature enough to choose their own direction. ,

Still ProsperousAfter the Mill ..


IT TOOK THREE generations .
for St. Joe Paper Company to run,
its course, but finally, they are
going to tear it down. '.'
No longer -will, we wonder if'
their' present owners don't intend
to put the paper mill to operating
again. They have :.. finally
announced the planned' demise of
the mill. They announced the
demise' of the mill nearly ,three,
years ago but they have put .a
scheduled time table for the actual
tearing down, 'now.
It took a. generation to build.
the mill; a generation to operate it,
and now, a third generation to tear
it down.
And all, three generations to
mourn it -passage..
The mill has beer good to Port
St. Joe. It put us'on the -map.
We were already in. the history
books, but hardly anyone knew' it!
We were just another sleepy little
fishing village pnor to'" the mill
coming. The ruins of the fishing '
*village are still there, just to the


night of the mill s wood 'vard. The
stumps of piling are still to be
seen, jutting out in the water
where the docks for the fishing
boats once were. .
I wonder how long the rem-
nants of the mill will remain visi-
ble?

I CAN IMAGINE HOW news of
the mill's pending construction
must have excited the residents of
Port. St. Joe-all 600 "of them-
when it was first announced it
would be built. .
.- olls didn't know theh, that In
a short while, a 'small city woultl
arise froin the piney woods and the


palmettos. They probably couldn't
imagine, in their wioldest imagina-
tions..that there would eventually
be five automobile dealerships
located'here.
Now there are none!
'They couldn't imagine there'
xwIold be three thriving depart-
ment stores here. ,
-No\,,, there are none!
They couldn't fathom there
being five furniture stores located .
here at one time.
Port St. Joe was quite a little
metropolis! .. ..

BUT, SO IS IT NOW! Not'-many
small cities, the size of Port St. Joe


have five individual banks in its
environs. Not many small ,cities,
the size of Port St. Joe, have 'the'
thnming business distinct we have
today in spite of plans being
'made to. tear down the,very finan-
'cial entity which brought it, all to
life.
The duPonts did well by us,
and %we appreciate it very much.
We appreciate the presenide they.
are still pursuing with us..
Nearly every church in the-
area, which Wants one, has a large
van presented by the duPont
estate.
Every school has many things
given to them by the duPont
estate. :
Their :largesse can be, seen
everywhere, in buildings, play-
grounds, tuition, you name it!
Alfred I, duPont set out to help
the people of this area and he is'
still the driving force behind the
development :of the "Forgotten
'Coast" as it leaps into the 21st'
'century, even though he has been


a resident of the graveyard for
many years.

ONLY TWO OF THOSE origi-
nal businesses remain. One of
them is .The Star, and the other is
St. Joe Hardware. Taking the place
of the five automobile dealerships, .
the three department stores, the
men's store and the theatre,. are
the five thriving banks, the" two
new schools, the myriad of hand-
some churches, and the three-
street business district.
Port St' Joe is now larger than
ever and is continuing to grow and,
flourish. We no longer have an ice
'plant, but we have in its place, a
relngerator in evety home and an
ice maker in every 'location that
one is needed.
The 'only reason wood cutters
are needed now is to cut wood for
decorative fireplaces: we heat by
electricity and. natural gas, these
days!
There are now more
homes-including fine 'homes-in


Port St. Joe than at any other time
in its past. history and 'fewer
house painters.

..YES, IF; IT HAS been quite a
while since you have been to Port
St. Joe, let me tell you here and
now: you wouldn't know the place!
.;It has changed!
It .has-and is continuing
to-grow by leaps and bounds.
Way back when I was a city
commissioner, and-went to meet-
ings with other commissioners in-
'other cities, they all looked with
envy' at Port St. Joe and its finan- .
cial base. We could finance about
any'program our citizens desired.
We didn't scratch our heads, won-
dering where the money was com-
ing from.
Well, lookat us now! We still
don't! Port 'St. Joe is stronger,.
more populous than ever, in spite
of tearing down the paper mill!

Eighteen teams of varying

Each team member must
raise at least $100, but event co-
chair Lisa Williams said that
many teams held a range of fund-
raising events to raise donations
in the hundreds and thousands of
dollars.
Relay for Life was started in
1985 when Dr. Gordon Klatt of
Tacoma, Washington, conceived'
a 24-hour marathon to raise
funds for the American Cancer
Society.
From those humble begin-
nings Klatt raised $25,000 the

Society's signature nationwide
fund-raiser has taken root in
nearly 2,500 communities 102

May Civility Month in City


by Tim Croft
May is officially a month for
treating neighbors like, well,
neighbors in Mexico Beach.
Recognizing that the word
civility derives from the same
Latin root word as citizen and
city, and citing a rise in rude and
boorish behavior in everyday life,
Mexico Beach city'commissioners
on Tiuesday' unanimously
approved a resolution declaring
May as Civility Month in the city.
In other business taken up on
a relatively light agenda, commis-
'sioners provided authorization to
city administrator Paul Sabiston
to negotiate a contract for the
construction of .12 dune
walkovers across the city's beach-
front.
Bids had been solicited for
the project and were recei ed and
opened last week.
.Just two bidders qualified.
Sabiston said,, with one priced
quite high and the other offering
to do the work for under $85,000.
Essentially, the commission
allowed Sabiston to negotiate with
the low bidder up to ,the $85,000,
re-bid parts of the project if nec-
essary and explore ways to reduce
the price,: possibly by employing
inmate labor. .
The 'work. which' is being
l'funded under a beach renounshh-
ment grant. must be undertaken
Sb" Ma' 1.
Commissioners also amended'
''thebudget for the Sewer Capital
lmpro\ ements fund by $] 6,611 to
account for refurbishing -man-.
holes in various areas in the city.
K'The money was part of con-
tingency funds still available from
the Sewer Reserve, Fund.
'Commissioners' also tossed
around 'possible ideas for. spend -
ing the portion of the city's utility
tax not earmarked for paving pro-
jects and work on the city pier.
Mayor Kathy Kingslarid indi-
cated she would like to hold a
public hearing in the near future
to solicit ideas from citizens.
Police Chief Brad Hall
brought forward for discussion -
no action was taken a problem
with disabled parking, which he
said was lacking "at the majority
of businesses" in town.


Hall also indicated that the
Florida. Department of Trans-
portation was examining making,
the stretch from Seventh Street to
the county line a no-passing zone "
and placing more signage warning
drivers that it is illegal to pass on
the right on U.S. 98.
Finally, the commission gave"
city clerk Henry Flack permission, i
to inventory boxes and boxes of
old documents, some dating to,
the chartering of the city in the
late 1960s.
As the: city offices are reorga-
nized and moved into new office
space, Flack said many of the
documents were old and non-
essential enough to be discarded.
Flack will inventory the
paperwork and bnng a list back to
the op nmnussion to consider for ..

Gulf Coast Electric Coop

Gets An Interior Facelift


by Tim Croft
With growth leaving it busting
the seams of its Wewahitchka
office, Gulf Coast Electric Co- .
operative is currently undertaking
a $400,000 renovation and
expansion of the facility.
General manager Roy Barnes
said, the most noticeable change
for customers when work. is com-
pleted sometime in late spring or


early summer will be an upgrade
to public areas.
"We're primarily remodeling
our lobby and customer service
area," Barnes said. "We will have
a completely new lobby and
whole new customer service
areas."
The need for the expansion,
which will add approximately
3,000 square feet to the facility's


existing 4,500 square feet, is
linked to age and growth.
The original building was
constructedd in 1955. A conference
room was later added, but that
was some years ago, Barnes said.
That, he added, has been
about it for nearly five decades.
"We have literally run out of
space," he added.

Not only would patients not

The most obvious would be
$170,000 a year worth of new
jobs: RNs, a nutritionist, clerk,
social worker, facility
director/physician and other
employees.
Additionally, there is a sense
that the dialysis unit could be a
selling point for .home buyers in
the area.
Kent noted that the West-
Florida clinic hasa liandFilul of
patients who winter six months of
the year in Pensacola specifically
because of access :to a dialysis
unit. -
Officials, at the Medical Cen-
ter Clinic, Kent said, have indicat-
ed that' once the proposal was
approved by the County Comrmis-
sion, they could have the dialysis
unit ready in about 120 days.
For patients in Gulf/Franklin,
who rack' up frequent-driving
miles each week, that day could.
not come too soon.

long survey that was more thor-

Finally. Ic'ame to the end,

Now, there have, been, more
than enough stories circulating
about companies trading in

tle leery about having my moniker
roaring cyberspace or mail order
purgatory.
That combined with a little
mischievousness compelled me to.'
alter a few letters in my name.
Having been called Tom Craft
enough in my life I appreciate-the
way names can easily be contort-
ed like Gumbv.
Besides. since I was a young
adult the IRS has somehow,'
despite numerous correspon-
dences and inquunes. linked my
Social Security .number to some-
'one named "Tomothy."
.So I changed a few, letters of
'my name for the survey and sent


off for my coupons and waited.
' I wasn't hurting anybody with
the name change, I figured.
The name wasn't going to be
stamped on the coupons. It was a
sales gimmick. I was just protect-
ing myself from unwanted incur-
sions.
It turned out I was looking at
in the wrong way. It seems I did-
n't ,understand the number ,of
neighborly people who would
reach out to me, or at least my
survey alter ego.
About 10 days after the sur-
vey was mailed a letter arrived.
addressed to my -survey psue-
don im, offenng me a nifty credit'
card from some bank in South
Dakota. .
A letter from a bank from
somewhere else in the Midwest
was not far behind.
I' t proclaimed that I. or at
least my a.k.a.. was already pre-
approvef for a credit caid with an

Port St. Joe Elementary has

that the dotted line was all that
separated, me from a new car or
home of my dreams.
A local mobile home dealer
even sent me a S 10.000 check ii
honor of their spring sale.

endorsement was questionable.
One company wanted to sell,

decades shy of retirement.
At least one music club want-
ed to send me 12 CDs for the

Of course, it was mostly niod-

were as foreign as Yorkshire pud-

price was so right. .
It's. all become too overwhelm-

known or understood that so
many people cared.

PSJ Track Team Does Well at Tallahassee Invitational


The Port St Joe High School
Track team traveled to
Tallahassee Saturday to compete
in the 3rd Annual Capital City
Invitational Track & Field Classic.
Teams from the Big Bend area
competed as well as teams from
the southern part of the state.
There were some solid
performances turned 'in by
athletes from Port St. Joe.
Posting personal running records
at the meet were Josh Watkins
with a 22.47 in the 200-meters
and Sam Amerson with a 2:12 in
the 800-meters. Kyla Moore
finished just out of the medals
with. a great run in the 1600-
meters..
In -the discus, senior Ken
Peak threw for a personal best.
Tensiotn mounted as Peak took
his turn which landed him in the
finals. His throw of 150-0 also
snagged him a third-place finish,
a bronze, medal and meet T- shirt.
This wasi the first medal of the
day.
The second medal would
come as junior Stephen Gaddis
entered the pole vault


competition. The meet record,
which was 13-6, was set by Port
St. Joe's own Josh Todd and
shared with Mark McCarty of
Tallahassee Godby. The record
fell during the competition. Five
, vaulters were left as Gaddis
entered the competition at 14-0
and cleared that height on his
first attempt. Gaddis cleared his
first attempt at 14-6 and bumped
the bar at 15-0. He received a
second-place silver medal and
meet T- shirt for his effort.
Coach Palmer stated, "Our
kids did a great job over Spring
Break, Ken Peak had a good meet
with his 150-foot throw. That will
be a real confidence builder for
him going into district."
Palmer feels the best
performances, are yet to come for
this team. Coach .-Chiles, Coach
McCroan, Coach Parker and
Coach McNair are setting their
sites toward the district meet,
hoping to qualify as many as
possible for regionals. The district
meet will be home Wednesday
April 17th.

Overcome

Dental Fear


Although dental treatment
is usually painless, your fear
itself can increase the likeli-
hood 'of pain. If' you worry
about pain, you're more likely
to feel it than a patient who
thinks positively. Fear can
also cause your body to.
release the hormone epi-
nephrine as a reaction to
stress. That's why you feel jit-
tery and probably have an
upset stomach when you are
anxious.


Ask questions if you are
apprehensive about a particu-
lar procedure. Knowing what
is going to happen and how
long it will take will ease your
worries. Talk to the dentist
about how he or she can put
you more at ease.
Distract yourself by using
headphones to listen to the
radio or relaxation tapes. This
will also muffle.the sounds of
the dental procedure if this
bothers you.
Establish a signal, such
as raising your hand, to tell
the dentist to stop during a
procedure. You'll feel more in
control of the situation. Also,
you'll be able to request addi-
ional anesthetic if you do feel
it's needed.


Over the past thirteen years, Dr. May and his staff have satis-
fied thousands of individuals by delivering state of the art,
painless dentistry in a gentle and caring manner. Can Dr. May
help you? Call 227-1123 for a Risk Free consultation.

Local Firefighter Meets FDNY Fire Chief.


Firefighters-A Brotherhood
By. Scott R. Baker, Fire-
fighter/Paramedic
Brotherhood (noun); An
organization of men that is
united for a common purpose.
In our great country there is
no greater brotherhood than that
of the brotherhood of firefighters.
Fire departments large and small,
urban and rural have a common
bond and desire. To protect the
lives and property of our fellow
man at any cost. Recently I trav-
eled to Biloxi, Mississippi to
attend the 2002 Air National
Guard Safety Focus Conference.
This annual conference is an
opportunity for Air National
Guard (ANG) safety professionals
from. across the country to gather
together and share ideas, relay
mishap experiences, and to dis-
cuss the direction that safety
within the Air National Guard is
headed given our current military
situation. I know what you're.
thinking. What does this have to
do&, with firefighting? Well, have
you ever been in a situation where
you received more than you bar-
gained for?
After checking into the hotel
and registering for the conference,
I headed to my room to settle in
for the night. I unpacked and
browsed through the itinerary for
the conference. Typical opening
remarks and speeches by various
safety professionals, nothing was
surprising thus far. Hold on a sec-
ond, the key speaker is an
t" Assistant Chief with the Fire
Department of New, York City.
More than I bargained' for? You
bet ya.
The following morning I made
my way down to the continental
breakfast provided for conference
attendees.:. I grabbed some
munchies and started the stan-
dard. mingling .and networking
wiith my fellow Guard safety guys
(and gals). I then noticed that
within the sea of Air Force blue
uniforms is a stately looking gen-
tleman in a distinctive black ser-
vice uniform jacket adorned with
gold. It doesn't take long. for my
eyes to focus on the 'Fire
Department of],the City of New'
York (FDNY) patch worn proudly
on his left shoulder. I was quitk to
introduce myself, not as an ANG
safety professional, but as a fellow
firefighter/paramedic ,
I had just personally m t
FDNY Assistant Chief Joseph


/


Callan. And he was happy to have
met me. Not just because of our
common bond as firefighters, but
he now felt more comfortable
speaking to us knowing that at
least one individual in the audi-
ence would "understand what -he
was saying". We chatted for a few
minutes, I expressed my condo-
lences for the men they lost, and
we headed into the conference
center.
As we progressed through the
typical opening ceremonies and
remarks I remembered that I
carry fire department and emer-
gency medical services (EMS),
patches with me whenever I
travel. You see, this is how I build
my fire and EMS patch collection,
by visiting fire stations and trad-
ing patches. During the next
break (and prior to Chief Callan's
speech) I rushed back to my room
to retrieve what I thought was'to
be just a Gulf County EMS patch.
Much to my surprise, I was
thrilled to find more patches in
my briefcase. Not only did I have a
Gulf County EMS patch with me,
but a Floi-ida' Paramedic patch
and patches from both the City of
Port St Joe and Gulf' County
Beaches (St Joe Beach) fire
departments as well. I tracked'
down Chief Callan again and pre-
sented the patches to him. I let
him know that if he did not per-
sonally collect fire .. and EMS
patches that,I would be honored if
he would give them to a member
of his department who did. He
stated that there was a patch col-'
lection -wall at the FDNY head-
quarters building and he would
ensure that pur patches found
their place within that collection.
What a thought! Patches from
Gulf County on the walls of a fire
department as prestigious as
SFDNY! As he proudly accepted myi
meager offering he looked at a
Captain standing next'to us, held
up the patches, and said "this is
the brotherhood staying alive",
As Chief Callan began his pre-
sentation. it quickly became obvi-
ous that this was to be more than
a simple speech on the Incident
Command System and the' initial
response to the World Trade
Center on 9/11. This was in fact a
personal account of the events
that morning.
You.see, Chief Callan had just.
reported for.duty that morning as
a City-Wide Tour Commander.
'He. two other City \Wide Tour


Commanders (Asst. Chiefs Gerard
Barbara apd Donald Burns) and
the Chief of the Department (Chief
Peter J. Ganci Jr.) were in Chief


Ganci's office for a typical morn-
ing briefing when a dispatcher
called the office arid told them to
simply look out the window. Chief


Ganci's office faced the World
Trade Center towers; they were in
flames.
They immediately responded


to the scene and went to work
doing what they do best-saving
lives. Chief Ganci assigned Chiefs
Barbara and Burns along with
himself to Tower #2 and Chief
Callan to Tower #1, a decision
which would soon prove to be
fateful.
Chief Callan went. on to
describe the difficulties facing thp
firefighters and their task of sayv
Sing lives and extinguishing the
fire. All communications within
the .building had been knocked
out when the plane hit. the stand-
pipe system built into the building
to supply firefighting water to the,
upper floors was disrupted. and
all elevators were out of service. If
you have ever been in any elevator
you are farruliar-with signs stating
"In' Case Of Fire Use Stairs". Well,
firefighters will still use the eleva-
tors to get to the fire arid do their
job.
With the elevators out of ser-
vice they now had to ascend 93
floors in full bunker gear carrying
2 1/2 inch hoselines- to lay fire
lines to the upper Iloors. A task
that will take a firefighter in good
.physical condition 1 hour to
ascend 60 floors. It will be at least
1 1/2 hours before they will reach
the fire:. As we know now, they
will never reach the fire.
A decision was made not to
concentrate on the fire bu, rather
the rescue and evacuation of peo-
ple beneath the fire floors. Chief
Callan assigned a battalion of
units to each. ten floors of the
building. He noted 'that as fire-'
fighters left the lobby for their
assigned floors, they shook hands
and embraced each other. It
became apparent that many'did
not feel they were to make it out of
the building alive. Yet they set out
to do their calling.
At such a time that 'it
appeared that most of the occu-
, pants were out of the building,
Chief Callan broadcast the order
for all fire units to withdraw from
the building. An order that many
would never receive due to the
communication systems within
the building being destroyed.
Suddenly a rumble followed
by darkness enveloped those in
the: lobby. Tower #2 had just
'totally collapsed. Chief Callan did
not know, the nearby tower had
collapsed, but thought instead
that a 3rd plane had. crashed in
the streets. By the grace of God

Fire Chief- From Page 1B


he and 30 others made their way
out to the streets. It was then that
they all 'realized that Tower f'2
had collapsed.
'Soon after Tower #1 fell as
well. .
You'see. Chief Callan \%as the
only Chief at the scene that lived:
that fateful morning. Not that he
didn t have enough to deal %with at'
the moment. but being a fire-
fighter in New York City is often a
family tradition. Chief Callan has
three sons who are firefighters


with FDNY and they were on duty
that morning. He. did riot know
the status of his sons. It would be'
4' 4,'/2. hours' before he would
recekie word that all three sons
were fine and hard at work.
As best they can tell. only ,32j
occupants of Tower #2 and a mere
four from Tower # I who were
below the impact floors penshed.
The FDNY lost 343 firefighters
that morning. From rookies to the
Fire Chief of .the Department.
They gave their all and over
25,000 civilians were evacuated
from the buildings in time.
When asked, if faced with, a
similar situation what would you
do differently, he simply stated
nothing Firefighters place
themselves in harm's way to pro-:
tect the lives of others. That is
\what they do, and that is what
they will always do.
S\We have .all seen the ppitures
and videos. \Ve have heard per-
sonal accounts and news reports.
Howe'.er. heannpg the story from
th, per-spectise ':,f a fir'e chief in
Sthe lobby of a World Trade Cnit'er
towver '.-as a sobering e.pei-ience -
to say the least. There are, many
firefighters in America. Both vol-
munteer and .paid. Some are more -
active than others. Many will go
the extra mile and are, willing to
nsk it all. Be you volunteer-.or '
;paid we are all professionals. We
are all part of a brotherhood.

A Fireman's Prayer

\\hen [ am called to dult God,
wherever flames may rage,
Give me strength to
save some life,
whatever be, its age.

Help me embrace a little child
before it is too late, "
Or to save an older person.
Jrom the horror of that fate.

Enable me to be alert
Sand hear the weakest shout,
SArndquicklyd and efficiently ,
to put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling
S-nrid to give the best in me.
To guard my every neighbor
and, protect his property.

And if, according -to my fate,
I am to lose my life;
Please bless with your protecting
hand my children and my wife.

Alligator's Bite'

Could Lift Truck
Picture the jaws of a 12-foot
alligator clamping down in its
prey. Now think of the jolt one
would feel by tying a. rope to :a
small pickup truck and trying to
hold on after dropping it ,from the
roof of a tall building.
What's the point? Well, -a
Florida State University research-
er has discovered that 'the
strength of the alligator's bite and
the jolt one would feel when the
truck reached the end of its 'rope
are nearly identical. If you were in
the jaws of an alligator and trying
to get out. it would be like trying,
to lift a pickup truck off yourself.
FSU biology professor Greg
Erickson, an expert in the denti-
tion of crocodilians and dino-
saurs, was exploring ways to fund
a study into how hard crocodiles
bite when a filmmaker asked him
last year about doing the research
for a i show bn the so-called
-SuperCroc, a monster crocodilian
that lived 110 million years ago.
Since no one had ever accurately
measured the biting strength 'of
crocodiles, Erickson convinced
the National Geographic Society's
Committee for Research and
Exploration to fund the study. 'His
research was featured on, the
National Geographic special
"SuperCroc", which aired .last
December. .,. *: :
At 40 feet long and weighing
up to 18,000 pounds, SuperCroc
is believed to have eaten dino-
saurs unfortunate enough to -get
trapped in its 6-foot .jaws.' A
French scientist discovered some
skull parts of the formally named
Sarcosuchus imperator in Afnca
about 40 years ago. Then about
two years ago, University of
Chicago paleontologist Paul
Sereno discovered a nearly com--
plete skull and about half of the
rest of a SuperCroc in the Sahara
Desert.
To get an idea' of how: the
giant crocodilian could hold' a
struggling dinosaur in its jaws,
Erickson and UF zoologist Kent
Vliet traveled to the St. Augustine
Alligator Farm and Zoological
Park with a 7-foot long bite-force
measuring pole built by engi-
neers. The farm is the only place
where at least one of every Ii-ing
species of alligator and crocodile
can be found.
Erickson, .who is also study-
ing the bite force of Tyran-
nosaurus rex, and Vliet had
- trouble getting many of, the crea-
tures to cooperate. Some o'f the
:largest old-timers would only give
a superficial bite. knowing that
the metal probe being thrust into
their mouths, wasn't food. Each
alligator or crocodile used for test-
ing also had to be roped and
pulled away from the others in
their, pond, a process that nearly
cost some of those assisting in.the
research a hand or foot. 1
Fihally. .the research team
had to weigh each alligator and
crocodile after testing its bite. The
novelty of picking up a'500 pound
crocodile to place it- on a scale
wore off fast. "
SAfter' eight days and testing
.60 subjects, Erickson and yVlet
recorded a bite with 2, 125 pounds
of force front a 665-pound, 12"fdot
American alligator. That's a force
- equal to the weight of a smMl
pickup truck. The biting force of
smaller alligators and crocodiles
were basically proportional to
'their size. thus Erickson and Vliet
.estimated that SuperCroc had
'about 18,000 pounds of force- to
.hold on to its prey. or about eight
and one-half times the force of the
.12-foot alligator's bite.
That complete, Erickson and
Vliet are. about to take their
research into a new, and equally
dangerous, phase. Late next
month they plan to travel to the
rivers and lakes of Central Florida
(See BITE on Page 3B).

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 2002


T. S. (Ted) Spangenberg, Jr.,
Chairman of the Board for United
Way of Northwest Florida,
-announced that United Way will
be Investing $1,436,020 this year
in grants and designations to
'health and human service pro-
grams serving primarily Bay,
Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson,
.and Washington Counties. He
said that since the board invested
an additional $15,000 from spe-
-cial reserves, this amount is actu-
ally -more than would have been
Available for the annual campaigner
after accounting for expenses and
anticipated pledge loss.
Spangenberg said that, even
faced with last year's uncertain-
ties, local-people and businesses
in the six county area contributed
a record $1,870,841. 'This is a
-strong indication of just how
much people in our area really
care. They deserve the credit.
They made 'this possible," he said:
".United Way just gave them an
.organized way to show that car-
ing."
He said, that the United Way
campaigns for the six counties
were: Bay County $1,623,275;,
'Jackson County $85,675;
Washington County $124,289;
.Holmes County $18,189; Gulf
County -$14,608; and Calhoun
'County $4,805. These totals
-include record efforts from the
.Combined Federal Campaign for
federal employees totaled
$3,503,214 and the Florida State
Employees, Charitable Campaign
,had a record $114,959.
Since -these campaigns are
open to state," national, and
'international agencies, they
accounted for most of the desig-
nations outside our area.
."'Thanks to this record cam-
paign, we were able to and
strengthen our community build-
ing comrrmtment." Spangenberg
'ioted, 'Once again this proves
that the United Way process con-
sistently raises more money, to*
'help more local people, more effi-
ciently, than all other' organiza-
'tions combined. I am very proud
of all the volunteers and staffPwho
worked- so hard to 'make this pos-
sible."
"'Thi is the first year for a
campaign in Gtilf and they, Allen
Cox and his volunteers, did a
remarkable job.: The outstanding
businesses who contributed were:,
GT Corn and employees, Arizona
Chemical and employees:- James
'A. 'Cok:rad Associates; Prudential
'>'TstincLicte Properties :CQo Devel-
opment, and many others. The
4i .: state employees are to be congrat-
ulated on their performance this

S ity. ,
Erickson feels the research is
helping scientists determine how
various species of alligators and
"crocodiles adapt, to different eat-
ing habits depending on where
they live.' His, widely publicized
research also helps generate.
interest in the sciences among
young children because of their
fascination with. animals such as
-dinosaurs and crocodiles.


tor this year with $9,037.
We hope next year will be even
bigger and better. In order to give
services with no charge, our agen-
cies depend on private donations.
The United Way and its affiliated
agencies want to thank Gulf
County for their community
building efforts. As we look at our
neighbors who may need immedi-
ate,help in time of a family crisis,
we can all say we did our part.
Thank you Gulf County."
United Way Affiliated
Agencies receive designations
through the campaigns and may
also apply for Community Fund,
Grants. These grants are directed
to programs that best address
current community needs in mak-
ing children, youth, and families
more healthy, self-sufficient, and
involved in caring for themselves
and each other.
Spangenberg also had special
praise for people who contributed
last year and urged everyone to
support the 2002 campaign. He
said, "United Way is a shared
responsibility that ensures these.
services are available all year for
people in our area."

The Bible clearly states, "All have sinned." It's in my nature to sin,
and it's in yours too.. None of us is untainted. Because of sin,
we've all hurt other people, and others have hurt u's.

We tend to ignore, hide, excuse, or avoid this hurt. We think, "In
time it will fade." ,The truth is -,time often makes things worse.
Wounds that are left untended fester and spread infection
throughout our entire body,. Time only extends the pain if the
problem is hot dealt with.'.

A life full of hurt is not God's desire for you. God's plans for you
are the opposite. In fact, Hd says, "I know the plans I have for you.
Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope
and a future."

To live the life He has in store for us, each of us needs repentance
and recovery. Whatever the hurt, hang-up or habit you are
. struggling with, God wants to guide you to wholeness. 'In the face
of marital difficulties, financial woes, addictions, abuses,
unbreakable habits, and hurts dealt to you by others, God offers
hope.. GOd offers wholeness. God offers recovery.

Will you join. us as we journey -down God's road to recovery?

We are now back in the swing
of things after a good spring
break. It is always a relief to know,
that our students and adults are
returning healthy and safe.. And
now the homestretch!
"How to Get Good Grades in
Ten Easy Steps" is a neat little
book from which I will share the
basics over the next few weeks.
Step One is Believe in Yourself.
"To succeed, we must first believe
that we can." This quote by
Michael Korda sets the tone for
success. Before beginning any-
thing, take. time to realize and.
visualize your potential, your
gifts, and your talents that make
all things possible.
On Monday of this week, Dr.
Truby addressed the Represent-
ative Assembly of FHSSA regard-
ing the need to change the bylaws
covering private and- public
schools. We need a more level
playing field. We %\ill find out how
the voting goes later in the week.
Of all the school districts to suffer
from. the disparity that exists
between the 'public and private
schools, it is, Gulf County. It,
almost seems that the current
system is in place to protect the
private schools while giving Gulf

to see the report cards ahead of
their children. Many conferences
with teachers have been sched-'-
uled as a result. If you did not get;
a report card' in the mail or you
would like to schedule a confer-
ence, please contact the office.,
You can be very proud of our

doing wonderfully. The baseball
team is leading the pack in our

they continue to get ready for the

Weightlifting will be moving on to ,

By Luke Catton President,
Narconon Arrowhead '
What do teen pregnancy,
child abuse, criminal a acts,
divorce, spousal abuse, automo-
bile accidents and related death&
in this country have in common?i
The majority of these social prob-'
lems are primarily fueled by sub-
stance abuse. According to the
National Institute of .Drug Abuse
in the year 2000, "66% of youth
that drink alcohol regularly report
usage of one or more illicit drugs."
Additionally, alcohol kills, more
people in America than all illegal
drugs being consumed combined.

L. Ron Hubbard, an American
author who spent nearly 30 years
researching drugs and their
effects on society, discovered that
all drugs act very similarly in that
a little bit acts. as a stimulant,
such as a few drinks. Then more
of the same drug acts. as, a seda-
tive, as in somebody passing out
from drinking a lot. Enough of the,
same drug, fast enough, v.ill kill a
person. Take for example the'-
recent rash of deaths among cbl-
lege students from alcohol poisot.n-
ing (caused when large amounts-
of alcohol are consumed in a short
period of tinl '' .
It seems to be a far.too com-
. mon consensus by Americans'
that alcohol isn't as bad as other'
drugs. The fact that alcohol is"
legal helps mold. this attitude :
surely, but add to alcohol's lCiti-.
macy th,- billions of, dollars spent n
annually on seductive advertise-f-
ments that glamorize drinking ,
and it's no i-,onder thit over 1/2 j
of America's ad ult popiilation con- ,
sumes alcoholic beverages on ,a
regular basis. (5'3 S" to be exact,'

Alcohol and Alcohol Abuso.rl .

the main catalysts that is driving
increasing numbers of youth to
drink. Alcoholic beverage com-
mercials, especially for beer, are
very good at positioning their
product next to something that is
normally desired or admired: For
example, an advertisement trying
to sell alcohol to guys might put
very attractive women in the qom-
inercial with, the alcoholic, bever-
age, and .vise versa. There are
often "good times", parties or
friends involved as well. People
begin to automatically associate
oiir- with the other and the alcohol.
just seems to be a part of everyday
life then to some' pe)pl-?i aind
seems to be a part of the good
life" to others.
Sometimes alcohol niommer-
cials will remind us at the end to
drink rerspi,'hsibly or to have a
designated driver, presenting
themselves as being genuinely
t-c.ncrned for our well-being. If
:-he manufacturers of alcoholic.
beverages were actually con-,
cerned about the welfare of
Amieric an, citizens then. Why dol
they spend 'so much time and
money creatingthe-e enticing ads.
and run them on pnme nlme tele-
vision when most of Americarn
families are watching their
favorite shows? If the alcohol bot-
tlers do actually: care about us
and our children, then perhaps.
they' should promote, the negative
effects, of alcohol consumption
much the same way pharmaceuti-
cal companies are ,required to
explain the side effects of pre-
scription drugs that are adver-.
tised. on television.

Andy Wilkinson
Financial Advisor
Many investors view tax 1plan-
ning as both tedious and confus-
ing. However. since just a lew
. minor changes to an investment
strategy may add up to significant
tax savings-every investor should
' learn to manage their investments
with tax implications in mind.
To help guide investors
toward a more tax efficient portfo-
lio. here are three simple strate-
gies:
Regularly Review Your
Portfolio Allocation
Determining -the right asset
allocation among stocks, bonds,
and cash is one of the most
important decisions to make
when designing your portfolio.
Investors may reduce the tax
implications of their investments
by allocating incoming-producing
assets., which are subject to ordi-
nary income-tax rates (i.e.. divi-
dends. interest, and short-term
capital gains, to a traditional IRA.
qualified plan. or Roth IRA.


The long-term capital- gains
tax regulations read assets held
over 12 months may be taxed up
to a maximum of '0-1. (100b for
taxpayers in the 150 bracket).
and if specific five year holding
rules are met. rates of 18o9 (89o for
taxpayers in the 15% bracket)
may be available. Investors may
consider allocating growth invest-
"' ments. v.hich usually generate
long-term capital gains, to taxable
accounts in order to benefit from
the lower long-term capital gains
tax rates.
Remember. assets held in an
IRA or qualified plan do not bene-
fit from the lower long-term capi-
tal pains tax rates because they
are taxed as ordinary income
upon distribution.
Consider Your Rollover Options
If you are retraining or changing
jobs. sou will have to decide what
to do with the assets in your com-
pany' s pension or 4011k) plan.
Your options include rolling
assets into an IRA. leaving them
in your current employers plan.
or taking a cash distribution.
If you choose to rollover your
retirement plan assets. you may
be eligible to convert a new or
existing traditional IRA into a
Roth IRA-as long as i our adjusted
gross income ,(AGI) does not
exceed S I100.000 in the year of
c: conversion. You may find it bene-
facial to convert to a Roth IRA
because distrinbutions are free of
lederIl income, and penalty taxes
if taken after you have reached
age 59- 1i2 and at least five tax
Nears alter the ac-count conver-
sion. Because there Lire tax conse-
quences associated with this
conversion you should consult
Sour tax advisor before making
this decision.
11 you anticipate receiving a
lump sum distribution from a
qualified plan containing the
stock ol1 our employer. you may
reap significant tax savings
through a strategy involving Net
Linrealized Appreciation.' Your
Financial Advisor \will be able to
provide details on this approach.

Don't Overlook Municipal
Bonds
Tax-exempt municipal bonds
may be an excellent investment,
for investors in a.high income-tax
bracket. Typically issued to raise.
funds; to build or improve public
facilities. these bonds are debt
obligations of states, cities, towns,
municipalities, 'and municipal
authorities. A few noteworthy fea-
/ tures of municipal bonds include:
State and local taxes for res-
idents of the issuing states.
However, any capital gains will be
subject to taxes .
T" he annual income pro-
duced by a municipal bond can
easily be estimated, which helps
make financial planning easier.
For some investors. this income
will subject to an Alternative
Minimum Tax (AMT). It is also
important to note that municipal
bonds are subject to the bond pre-
mium and market discount rules
And ownership could impact the
taxation of Social Secunty bene-
fits.
There are no penalties for
early withdrawal of invested
funds. and proceeds may be used
for any purpose.
Contrary to popular opinion,
tax planning does not have to be
confusing and complex. By start-
ing with a few basic steps such as
these. you can refine your portlo-
lio and enhance your potential for
greater returns, but before mak-
ing any tax-related investment
decisions, you should always con-
tact your tax advisor, as
Prudential Securities is not a tax
advisor.

Airtight System

Saves Heating/

Cooling Dollars
11 you're looking for a way to
reduce your air conditioning bills.
check your air distribution system
for leaks. According to a Flonda
Solar Energy Center study, this is
where most homes waste energy-,--
through leaky air handlers and
ducts.
The amount of leakage in an
average 2.000 squre foot home
can cost the homeowner 10-20
percent more in annual heating
and cooling costs compared to an
airtight system.
Wasting conditioned air isn't
the only problem resulting from
leaky systems. A leaky air handler
in the garage can draw in car
exhaust fumes or toxins from
chemicals stored near it. The
average installed air handler cabi-
net allows stx percent of the sys-
tem's airflow to leak in from the
garage or attic. The best location
for the entire system, ducts and
air handler. is in a conditioned
space.
Most homeowners, even those
who recently noted into new
homes, may be well advised to
take advantage of any utility or
independent duct-sealing pro-
grams. Although the best time to
ensure a home will have an air-
tight system is during the design
phase.
Planning an airtight system
before construction has other
advantages besides potential
energy savings. New homes in
Florida can receive energy credits
under the new energy code if a
qualified energy rater's test yen--
lies the air distribution system is
substantially leak free. IGo 1t0.

are properly hydrated." Not many
people are aware of this. Athletes
pained by dry eye can rehydrate
their eyes with artificial tear prod-
ucts which bring, relief without
constricting the blood vessels of,
the eye.
According to Dr. Brow-n. ath-
letes don't often make the connec-
tion between their dry, red. eyes
and theil- travel schedules.
Severe dry eye is character-'
ized by redness. burning. itching.
scratchiness. teanna sensilu\-ity
to light and/or mucus secretion.
It may be causedby exposure to
environmental conditions or
injuries to the eve. People with
arthritis and people who use com-
pLters are more prone to dry eve.
Sometimes medication-, that
decrease tear produLtion such as I
decongestants and antihista-
mrrnes can dry out one s eyes.
