"We are not getting out of the
F.SAA," said Liberty County foot-
all coach Richard Kennedy. 'We
' are getting out of the state playoff
system in football."
The reasons are several, but
'revolve around a central belief
among small public schools that
during the postseason they are
competing against private schools
which have become, as Anderson
put it, "athletic magnet schools."
Pick just about any sport,
football to softball to volleyball to
basketball to swimming to base-
ball, and private schools generally
dominate the lower state classifi-
cations.
The tension between the
public and private schools has
been stoked for some time. At one
point there was a proposal for a
separate public/private playoff
system, a proposal that was voted
down by the FHSAA.
S.The situation was exacerbat-
ed for the public schools several
years agp when powerful interests
in the iFlorida Legislature over-
hauled the FHSAA.
Private schools have, .in the
S.veys of many public schools, held
.even'dndre 'swu3y'ovetrthte organi-
zation since.
The feeling comes down to
class warfare: in the eyes of many


public school officials the Legisla-
ture, and' by extension the FHSAA
it has created, has a vested inter-
est in maintaining the athletic
competitiveness of private
schools.
Lastly. public schools feel
that private schools not only use
financial aid and scholarships to
cast wide recruiting nets, but that
that recruiting means small
public schools, with strictly


homegrown talent, face private

ly powerful and athletically gifted.

DOC Fires Three Employees


After Year-Long Investigation


The Florida Department of
Corrections released a statement
last Friday (April 19) stating they
had fired three employees after a
year-long investigation into mis-
treatment of an inmate at Gulf
Forestry Camp.
According to the release, the
investigation by the department's
Inspector General's Office began
in April 2001 when the incident
was first reported to DOC officials.
For their role in abusing inmate
William Webb, Lieutenant Carmen


McLemore, Sergeant Christopher
Wood and Correctional. Officer
Donald Guillot have been dis-
missed.
It states, "The department
fired the officers for several viola-
tions including conduct unbecom-
ing a public employee, failure to
Maintain the proper security and
welfare of an inmate and willingly
treating an inmate in a cruel man-
ner."
Published reports state that
Webb accused McLemore and
Wood of handcuffing him to a tree
and beating him. Webb also stated
he was sprayed with a chemical
agent. Guillot. on the other hand,
reportedly did not participate in
the activity, but rather did not
give an accurate report of what
occurred.
In a written statement
McLemore, who also is currently
serving as chairman of the Gulf
County Commission, stated the
allegations made by the inmate
were false.
McLemore states, "Recently a
former inmate has made accusa-
tions against me and two other
correctional officers which has
resulted in our being fired by the
Department of Corrections. The
allegations ,madeby the inmate
are false and were made so he
could file a lawsuit to try to collect
money from the State.
"When the charge was made
against me,' I contacted a lawyer
and told .him I wanted to .prove
that I was innocent. He set up a
polygraph test with the man who,
does polygraph tests for the
Department of Tallahassee, Ray A. Fredrick. This'
man, used, to be the head poly-
graph' examiner for the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
and has 33 years of experience in
law enforcement.
"I passed the polygraph test. I
later learned that Sgt. Wood had
done the same thing with another
polygraph examiner and had
passed his test also.
"This is nothing more than a
-political witch hunt. I am appeal-


ing my dismissal and am eager to
have the opportunity to prove my
innocence. I appreciate your sup-
port and prayers throughout
this."

Law Day Observance

Next Wednesday
Forty-four years ago President
Dwight D. Eisenhower issued a
proclamation establishing May I
each year as Law Day, a time to
celebrate and rededicate our-
selves to the great values pro-
tected and preserved in our
Constitution. That first proclama-
tion eloquently set forth reasons
why we, as a free people, celebrate
our heritage of liberty under law.
President Eisenhower noted
that it was "fitting that the people
of this Nation should remember
with pride and vigilantly guard
the great heritage of liberty, jus-
lice and. equality under law which
our forefathers bequeathed to us."
He said further that It is "our
moral and civic obligation as free
men and as Americans to preserve
and strengthen that heritage."
On April 27, '1998, Governor
Lawton Chiles signed a bill estab-
- lishing- an official Law Day in`
Florida. That bill is now Section
683.22 of the Florida Statutes,
which reads in part, "During the
week, all residents,, schools, bust-
Snesses and clubs and the mass
media are invited to commemo-
rate the role of law in our lives."
Law Day 2002 will be"
observed Wednesday, May 1 at 4
p.m.' ET in the courtroom of the
courthouse in Port St. Joe. Elijah
SSmiley, a Gulf County native- and
now a sitting County Judge in Bay'
County, will be the guest speaker.
Gulf County Judge Fred
Witten will also recognize several
volunteers who have helped make
the Teen Court program' in Gulf
County a success.
The public is invited to
attend.

Stretch Is A


Neat, Cute, and


Effective Idea
It has been noted on many occasions that small business
ventures are major catalysts for new ideas and innovative
thinking. Last week's story on "Stretch" is a perfect'example of
just how true this is.
In today's world of giant mega chain-operated businesses
and conglomerates one would naturally assume bigger busi-
ness is better but, that's not necessarily so.
Penny Ford's idea to make a stretcher partner named
"Stretch" for young riders who have to experience the trauma
of an emergency ride in an ambulance is fantastic. I got the
opportunity to see "Stretch" in action as Penny introduced the
cuddly creature to Mrs. Phyllis Bixler's Pre-K class, seeing how
quickly they), were drawn to it.
Kids are attracted to "Stretch" just like it was a magnet. Of
course, I guess that's exactly what "Stretch" is- a kid magnet
meant to distract and calm young victims.
Penny works with Gulf EMS, as does husband John (sta-
tion manager). John's mother, Carolyn Ford, made the first
twenty "Stretch" buddies, which were given to Gulf EMS in
honor of her husband who recently passed away.
Penny and family wVill likely not reap vast financial rewards
from this idea. But, as is often the case in these ultra-small
business/community ventures, success is measured with a
different formula
S. Thanks for your care and concern. I'm sure Poppa Ford
would be proud.

Election Time Is


Approaching Fast

It seems like only yesterday we were in the middle of the
largest election ever held in Gulf County. Record numbers of
candidates signed up to run for office during the 2000 election
year.
. Here we are nearly through our fourth month of the year
and as 2002 temperatures begin to rise so, too, does the potit-
ical climate seem to be warming up. Several announcements of
intefitions to seek re-election, run for office, or,-'as-wa. the
case with school board member Mary Pridgeon, announcement
Sof plans not to seek re-election have already printed.
In anticipation that more announcements are forthcoming
I would like to take a little space in this column to explain our
policy concerning announcements of this nature.
First and foremost it does not cost one red dime to make
your initial announcement of intent in the paper. Free of
charge, we will publish those intentions and. at least, start the
article on the front page of the edition of the paper it appears
in-complete with picture.
A candidate is asked to submit an announcement, bearing
in mind this article should be an announcement of intentions
listing such items as a candidate's history, accomplishments,
intentions if elected, platform, etc. This is not meant to be
used as a forum to directly or personally attack any other can-
didate for office.
All candidates are also asked to hold these announcements
to a reasonable length. This has not been a problem in the past
and we do not anticipate it will be an issue now. If, by chance.
someone does get a little long-winded we will ask the candidate
to shorten the article or edit it ourselves.
The editorial policy of The Star will be, as always, to
remain neutral in all local elections.


I moved to Gulf County in
August of 1969 during a hurri-
cane. It was raining sideways. >The
wind was blowing (literally) Iob
miles an hour. Trees, dogs and tin
roofs were flying past my winid-


shield. It was darker than rrud-
night in the bottom of the number
nine shaft at the Peabody Coal
Company. And I kept looking for
the giant run-a-way freight train
that I could hear. but couldn't see.
%nly the ignorance of youth
kept me from turning that Buick
around and heading back to a land
where the rain fell down from the
sky and the wind blew lightly in
gusts.... .
I grew up in the woods. Way
back in the woods! So naturally, I

get away from that environment
and immediately fancy myself as a
beach bum. No need to show these
new folks my red neck. stump-
whupped-chitlin' appetite the first
day in town.
I had to find a place on the
ocean. I saw Where The Boys Are
with Connie Francis and' Jim
Hutton- and figured everyone in
Florida lived on the water and sang
to each other day and night.
The beach house was easy to
find. The 85 dollars a month was


something else! I felt like I had
been held up just because I was
young and looked like Frankie,'
Avalon! I changed into my swim-
ming suit and headed to the
water's edge. At these prices I
couldn t waste a minute!
The first thing I noticed was
the sand between my toes. I didn't
like it! And the salt or sand ,odt
something got all 'over my :sktin.
;And the sun burnt me in about five
minutes. I limped back to the
house and tried to wash the grit
and sunburn and.sand off. There
were some things about the beach
they didn't show you in those
Annette what's-her-name movies
Then it got dark, I kept hear'-
ing something coming out of that
ocean! Some moaning :and groan-
ing and eerie whispers. Then I got
to remembering another, picture
show-The Creature Prom The Black
Lagoon. People. that thing would
swim right up out of the water and
grab you! I dreamed of giant tiger
sharks and sea monsters. I started
hearing the theme from Jaws. And
this was three years before that
movie came out!
One month was ''all' I' could
stand. I begged out, of-my ill coni-
ceived 85 dollars a month lease
and went looking for something
more reasonable. There's got to be
some nice. land, understanding
gentleman out there with a house
far from the' ocean who wouldn't
.know Paula Prentiss from the man
in the moon!
Dr. Robert King looked me up
and down-and then up and down
again. 'Where did you .say you
were from?' I started to answer but
before I could-'You don't look like ,
you know very much. You're a
teacher! And a football coach?"
Well. I was suppose to be. But
this tall man sizing me up had me
doubting if I could do anything.
'Did you ever actually play
football? Or are you just one of
those on-the-spot-experts. I've
known a lot of those lakinds.'
Well. sir. I played a Titde-' .
'Do you. know anything abolt,
the game? Do you remember Elroy
'Crazy Legs' Hirsch? And Slinging
Sammy Baugh? Charley Trippi? Or
Glen Davis?'
I was about to. tell this' guy
exactly what I thought of him, the
beach, this town and a hurricane
named Camille when I saw the
smile kinda etch up on one side pf
his mouth. He was putting me on!
And he had a place. I could
stay. Well, it was sort of a place.
It's a building down, on Reid
Avenue. It used tbo'be'.Wiley's
Hardware but Mr. Wiley moved
out. It has a small bathroom in the

fact--don't even have hush toi-

I was reading in this month's
National. Geographic, where a
writer was telling about a trip he
recently made to Tibet. He
described the hotels he stayed
in, as:-"a few had indoor plumb-
ing; many had outdoor facilities,
but some only provided a squat
in the bushes!"
Those conditions still prevail
in much of the world, today.

THE LIST ALSO reminded
me of Mrs. Lucille McKnight's
death, last week. '
Her husband taught me in


an Intermediate Sunday School
class in the old First Baptist
Church building. It was across
the street from the present build-
ing and was a two-story brick'
building. Sunday School was
held in the bottom story-or
basement-and worship services
were held upstairs.
Those were part of those
days before we had air condition-

time, down in that basement.

changes were also discussed.
City commissioner, Ralph
Fisher said most complaints
steamed from the tighter county
requirements to have architectur-
al plans drawn and sealed for
small home additions and similar,
projects. County Building Official
Michael, Hammond outlined the
reason for some of the restric-
tions. He agreed that some of the
new rules were distasteful but
required by the state. Other rules
were left in place to bring unifor-
mity to the building code through-
out the county.
The board agreed to meet with
Wewahitchka city officials again
next Monday, April 29, at five
o'clock p.m. Eastern time and fur-
ther discuss the building code.
GOOD NEWS ON ROAD PAVING
During that same Monday
meeting County Administrator
Don Butler and Building Official
Michael Hammond gave the board
good news concerning their cur- ,
rent road paving, bond issue pro-
ject. The board, will have 'some-'
where between 350,000 and
400,000 additional dollars to
work with as they consider roads
in need of resurfacing or paving.
After discussing how to ear-
mark the money the commission-
ers agreed that all'board members
would submit a list of roads that
are in need of paving for consider-,
ation. They will then review those


roads and prioritize paving needs
that can be met with the addition-
al funds available.
SUNRISE SUNSET TOWN-
HOMES IN TROUBLE
Bill Roberts approached the
board on behalf of the owners of
Sunrise Sunset Townhomes of
Cape San Bias. The units are
located in an area of the cape that.
has experienced serious erosion
problems over the past several
years. Roberts was seeking a vote
from the board to declare an
emergency situation so property
owners could quickly address
some emergency stop gap efforts
to protect theii property.
Roberts outlined a plan which
included driving fiberglass sheet
pilings in the ground' as a buffer
between the townhomes and the
gulf. He explained the- sheets
would be a stop gap measure that
would hopefully protect the prop-
erty from a five year stortn event.
occurence. Phase two of the pro-
tection plan called for rebuilding
the dunes and planting vegetation
for' additional long term protection
and renourishment of the beach
area.
' During discussions, Butler
recommended to the board that,
the property owners be, required
to go through the standard DEP'
permitting process because' the'
county's comprehensive plan
specifically banned the use of ver-
tical sea walls. Butler further
explained his fear that making an
exception for these property own-
ers would set a precedence open-
ing the way for several other prop-
erty owners. in similar situations..

During a phone conversation
with Donald Guillot Tuesday he
commented that he had not
retained an attorney at this time
and felt it would be unwise to dis-
cuss the matter. He said no
charges had been filed against
him.
At press time efforts to con-
tact Christopher Wood were
unsuccessful.
As for McLemore's status as
County Commission chairman, no
charges have been filed against
any of the. three men fired by
DOC. The governor of Florida has
latitude in these cases. According
to a representative in. the gover-
nor's office, since there are .no
charges at this time he really does
not have a role in the process as. it
stands.
"We have no.:tolerance 'for
abuse of inmates in our custody," '
said DOC Secretary Michael W.
Moore. "When a correctional offi-
cer commits wrongdoing he or she
must face the consequences. We-


do not condone abuse."
McLemore began his employ-
ment with the department on
December 7, 1990, Wood on June
15, 1990 and Guillot on January
21, 2000. Since the incident,
Webb has satisfactorily complet-
ted his sentence and has been
released. The investigation is con-
tinuing and, additional criminal
charges by the FBI are possible.

pnvate/public issue behind."
Calls to the FHSAA were
directed to Commissioner Larry
Hughes, who was out of town on
actionn and unavailable for com-
m ent. ' ,
FHSAA communications
director Jack Watford did say that
there was nothing in the organiza-
tion's bylaws prohibiting the
small public schools from declar-
ing themselves independents and
establishing a league.
He added that typically
between eight and 12 schools
each year choose to declare as
independents in football, primari-
ly because the school is just start-.
ing football.
One npple effect of the exo-
dus of 22 schools from the play-
offs for the FHSAA., through, will
be classification.
Currently, the FHSAAclassi-
Ries schools by taking the total
number playing football in the
state and dividing them into six
relatively equal classes based on
enrollment.
Take 22 small schools out of
the playoff picture and thelimpact
vould likely be felt all the way up
to Class 6A.


For purposes of classification
and scheduling, the FHSAA oper-
ates on a two-vear cycle. The cur-
rent cycle ends with the 2002-
2003 school year.
SSince all the schools repre-
sented at Monday's meeting had
already contractually comnrutted
to schedules and the state football
playoffs for 2002. the earliest, thL.I
!6ould take action was 2003.
That two-year cycle was the
reason coaches and administra-


a Cnue'tea i'A.1 x~

po ":-I~-Bd e Jc&-en


tosiiilycm iudt ev


tors initially comrrumitted to leave
the playoffs for two years, a kind-
of test run.
Small-school football coaches
have been this far before..
The idea of splitting off from
the FHSAA has been; bandied
about by small public schools for.
most of a decade.
Coaches even got as far as
drawing up schedules as indepen-
dents several years ago but 'the
coalition of schools collapsed.
However, a recent vote by the
FHSAA's governing assembly
against a proposal to require pri-
'vate schools to multiple their.
enrollments by 1.5 for athletic
classification purposes seemed a
last straw.
Coaches and school adminis-
trators gave no indication Monday
that they were wavering in their
determination to leave the,FHSAA
football playoffs behind.
Port St. Joe High School pnn-
cipal Chns Earley noted that after -
speaking to. the FHSAA general
assembly prior to the 1.5 factor-
ing vote he was told by a high-i
ranking organization official that
it would require something such
'as leaving the football playoffs for
the voting body to address the
complaints of the small, public
schools,
'That (the 1.5 factoring rule)
would have been a step in the
right direction,". Anderson said.
"But it didn'tpass by vote of 39-
'19. We're. tired of it and we are
ready to do something about it."

In addition to committing to
leave the FHSAA football playoffs
in 2003, the coaches and admin-
istrators also established a gov-
erning framework lor the new
league and annual dues of $100
per school, to cover championship
trophies. etc.
Gate receipts will cover the
ex-penses of the playoffs.
Tentative district schedules
,were also drawn up. .
The league must still ratify
operating bylaws, which they are
scheduled to review and approve
during a meeting in July.
For the immediate future, the
issue is football, but Kelley and
others said football could be just
the starting point for similar
action in other sports down the
road.

by Tim Croft
Galileo and Hubble won't
turn rin their graves when I say
that one of my many vices to'
which I will freely admit is for sky
watching.
No cosmic answers about life
on Earth are sought, nor is there
,hope to unlock any mysterious
secrets to the universe.-
It's just fun and sometimes
overwhelming to stand or sit near
the water on a clear night and
observe the twinkling dots in the
distance.
It's also pretty humbling
when pondering that most of
those shiners are so far away, the
mind can't even conceive of the
Distance.
Who, for instance, can wrap
, themselves easily around the con-
cept of a light year?
Or how the moon, and sun
could appear so close in size in
the sky even though the Sun is
thousands of times larger?
So it's best to leave the. big
questions, Whether religious, sci-
entific or existential, to weightier,
minds and just enjoy a show that
changes by the day.
And for the next few weeks,
the western sky,' shortly after,
sunset will be a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity.
The five so-called "naked-eye"
planets those visible from Earth
by the unaided eye are lining up
for a light show that won't be seen
from here until sometime after
most of us are ashes and dust.
Watch where the sun slips
below the hoi-zon and wait a
short time for the first diamonds
of light.
For a little over a week now,
Jupiter, Saturn and Mars have.
mustered into a nearly straight
line in the west each night.
Last week, with a crescent
moon in the middle, .it was a
beautifully eerie, sight, but even
with the Moon now higher in the'
sky the cosmic vision is alluring.
Mars is the one that looks a
little duller, reflecting the sun's
light from its ruddy surface, giv-
ing it an almost.reddish glow.,
As the calendar moves from
April to early May, Mercury,
Venus, Mars and Saturn will clus-
ter together in the western"sky
just after sunset, with Jupiter a
Bright beacon nearby. '
Mercury, smaller and closer
to the horizon,' will be the tough-
est to see.
By next week, Mercury, Mars,
Venus and Saturn should appear
within 10 degrees.of each other in
the sky, or about'the width of a
clenched fist held at arm's length.
Jupiter will be higher in the
sky, about three fists away.
Venus, Saturn and Mars will
steadily move into an even closer
cluster, a near perfect triangle.
Before the planets go their sepa-
rate ways in the sky around Ma, y
12 I .


According to scientists, the
best nights for viewing will be May
3-10, with the compact Verius-
Mars-Saturn triangle best seen'
the evenings of May 5-6.
" Scientists don't consider it a
true planetary alignment'-- it's
S only the five visible planets and
i scientists- consider a true align-,
ment to be all the planets on the
same side of the sun and grouped
within 90 degrees of each other in
the sky.

However, scientists are jumpy
as a caffeinated bullfrog, since
this array won't be seen again for.
at least 50 years, and possibly as
long as 100 years.
They say this ,is a show even
the casual skywatcher ought to
take in since, hey, none-of us has
a ticket stamped tomorrow.
And even if we had a guar-
entee to stick around the next 50
years, such a night ,spectacle
might never appear.
A similar' grouping occurred
almost exactly two years ago, but
it was one the other side of the
Sun from the Earth another
concept to make aray matter turn
pale and the Sun's light, doused
the planets "when viewed from
Earth.
And while groupings of three
planets are sompewhan common,
as those things go apparently, five
is a stunner.
SThis rare planetary align-
ment, of course, is being greeted.
by all sorts of dire predictions by
the Miss Cleos and her ilk in this
world.
Extraordinary tides, earth-
quakes and other apocalyptic
events are predicted, but. they
also were two years agp and


somehow the Earth remains spin-
ning us around-in space.
Scientists, on the other
hands, are providing a -host of
intricate reasons for this rare
grouping, calculating the varying
distances from Earth of the plan-_-
ets and their varying arcs around
the Sun.
Psychics and physics, Oh!
Myl
So from here, the view is to
just enjoy the cosmic, carnival.
The price is right and it may not
come to a town near you again.

Did you ever wonder why
"trench mouth" is so common
among college students? That's
because it is associated with
stress.
Trench Mouth (also called
Vincent's disease) gets its name
because it was so prevalent
among soldiers occupying the
trenches during World War I. Not
only were they under unusual
stress, but you can rest assured
their dental hygiene in the muddy


Trench Mouth

At College

trenches was nil. Today, it is often
seen among college students at
exam time, particularly if the stu-
dents have let down their regular
brushing and flossing routines.
Trench mouth is not a pretty
disease. It is a sudden, severe
infection of the gums, often
involving bleeding, pain, foul
mouth odor and a blunting of the
triangular area of the gum tissue
between the teeth. Treatment
usually consists of a thorough,
professional cleaning of the
teeth, antibiotics and mouth rins-
ing with a hydrogen peroxide
solution. Usually, the gums will
be healthy again within a few
weeks.

Roy Lee Carter Gulf's "Answer Man"


He Has Served As Gulf County's


Extension Agent Over Two Decades


by Tim Croft
Slowing down Roy Lee Carter
can be as tricky as halting a race
car with your feet.
Whether advising farmers,
working with kids or keeping up
with the latest agricultural and
horticultural advances, Carter,
the county extension agent, ren-
ders the description "on-the-go"
'inadequate.
Or as John Rich, a volunteer
at the Port St. Joe Elementary
School community garden,
described Carter, "He wears a lot
of hats. He stirs early and works
late."
He's been doing it for 23
years.
The Florida extension service'
was born in 1914 federal legisla-
tion called the Smith-Lever. Act.
That measure broadened the
scope of the mid- 19th century era
Land Grant Act.
The Florida Cooperative
Extension is a partnership
-' between the University of Flori-
da's Institute of Food and Agricul-'
tural Science (IFAS),- the U.S.
Department of Agriculture and
Florida's counties.
For example, while the coun-
ty determines Carter's salary it
actually arrives from two sources:
a check from UF representing
state and federal dollars and the
remainder from the county.
According to its mission
statement, the. Florida Extension
"serves each of the state's 67
counties by providing information
and conducting educational pro-.
grams on issues such as sustain-'
able agriculture, competitiveness
in world markets, natural
resources conservation, energy
conservation, food safety, child-
and family development, con-
sumer credit counseling and
youth development."
In a state as large as Florida,
however, that wide rainbow of
programs refracts into different
spectrums and hues from Key
West to Central Florida to the
Panhandle.
I "It varies so much." Carter
said of the-extension agent's role
from county to county. 'It just
depends on the county and what
the county needs."
i And in his more than- two
decades as extension agent,
Carter has seen the needs in Gulf
County change as much as hair


styles since the, late 1970s.
"We've cLanged quite a bit,"
Carter said. "When I first started
we were heavy in economic crops,
corn, soybeans.
"We've gone from that to
mainly rural crops and small
farms."
Carter said he divides his
time and energies into three main
.areas.
He estimated 30 percent ig
spent with small farmers, "keep-
ing them updated on new variety
of (feeds) and the best variety to
grow."
He also keeps farmers
abreast of the most recent agri-
cultural 'advances and new tech-
nologies.
Thirty percent of Carter's'
times goes to home horticultural
issues, answering questions and
securing information for home-
owners, county garden clubs and
others.
It is here, through his work
with entities such as the Garden
Club of.Port St. Joe, that Carter's
spot in the state and national"
extension rietwork most -clearly
surfaces.
"I'm a link from the Universi-
ty of Florida to the local people,'"
Carter said. "One of my general
goals (upon becoming extension
agent), was to be part. of a net-
work.
"If I'm the link between the
county and the University of
Florida, Lhave a responsibility to
use that network to find.
answers. "
It is akin, said Zebe Schmitt,
president of the Garden Club of
Port. St. Joe, to having 9"The
Answer Man" a phone call away, if,
of course, Carter has slowed.,
enough to be reached by phone.,
"He is awesome," Schmitt
said. '"The great thing about him,
when we need information, he
knows just about anything. But if
he doesn't know, he will call the
university and get the information:
for us.: .
"He is the No. I resource for
the Garden Club. It's a special
investment he has in the Garden
Club.


'But he is there for every- his time. Carter figured, was gob-
body. He is one of-the best exam- bled ,-ip working with .kids,

directly with the schools.


"He's excellent with the kids,",
said Port St. Joe Elementary
School teacher Carmel Dodson.
Carter works closely with Dodsot.
and her kids on a community gar-
den at the school.
"li"He has good discipline with
them," Dodson continued., "He is
good at motivating them and very
patient with them. I've never seen
him be mad with any of them,
"He's been a very giving guy
and never sought any kind of
recognition for himself. I've never
seen him other than at one speed:
steady."
Educating. kids, and adults
for that, matter, about flora and
fauna and 'the science underlying
life on the land seems to be a path
Carter fwas directed down at an
early age.
He" graduated with a bache-
lor's degree in agricultural educa-
tion from Alcorn State, then
Alcorn!A&M, in Mississippi.
Having played on standout
football teams in high, school in
his native Starksville. Ms., Carter
pondered walking on in football at
Alcorn, then a national black-col-
lege powerhouse.
It took only a quick scan of
the players on the practice field,
however, for him to back right off
the gridiron.
"I. was too small," Carter said
shaking his head. ,
"It's hard to believe looking at
me now," he said, scanning his
barrel-chested frame stretching
well over 6-feet. "But Lord, when I
looked at those players I could see
I was just too small."
Carter moved from Mississip-
pi to Gulf County in 1974 to teach
agriculture at Wewahitchka High.
He spent five years at
Wewahitchka, High while earning
a master's degree in agricultural
education from Flonda A&M in
Tallahassee.
At the same time he and his
wife raised a family that now
includes a grown son and daugh-
ter as well as a teenage daughter.
In 1979:- the extension agent
job came open.
"I was at the right place at the

fications," Carter said.
He has been a ubiquitous
presence in the county since, his
current vehicle, a white pickup
truck, racking up more miles
than a moving van.
Carter seems to have extend-
ed his hands in most every direc-
tion, sometimes with success,
sometimes not.
An example of the latter
would be a venture helping coun-
ty farmers get into the hot new
market of aquaculture.
That effort proved problemat-
ic due to the influence over. the
market enjoyed' by Mississippi
catfish farmers, who take advan-
tage of state feed co-ops to keep
costs down.
However, the successes far
outweigh the setbacks and, in the
case of two community gardens at
county elementary schools, can
be quite tasty.
The garden at Port St. Joe
Elementary is sprouting tantaliz-
ing rows of strawberries, collards,
onions, red-ice potatoes .and
pumpkins, the last of which will


be ready when the kids return to
school in .the fall.
Carter and the kids have also
set up an experiment to grow Shi-
take mushrooms using seed
implants sunk into oak logs
which are sheltered from the sun
and kept moist.
"It's been eight years with the
garden and it's been very reward-
ing," Carter said. "It's a very good
project for the kids."
At Wewahitchka Elementary,
the community garden was
recently awarded first place in the
"Multiple Class Garden" category
at the Florida School Garden
Competition, sponsored by Dis-
ney's EPCOT center, the Florida
Federation of Garden Clubs and
UF.
The prize, for the award was a
$500 check to the school and
recognition during the 2002
EPCOT International Flower and
Garden Festival.
A local advisory committee
comprised of members from the
Garden Club, small farmers and a
few Four-H Club kids helps keep,

Carter in step with county agri-

and projects.
The committee meets twice a
year to map out needs and priori-
ties.
For someone who acknowl-
edged that he is one man doing
the work of two, the committee
provides valuable eyes and ears.
But that, in essence, is what
Carter's professional life is about,
the symbiotic relationship of a

"When people see you are

With an increasing number of.
TIV channels and programs com-
ing into our homes each day, it
can be hard for parents to monitor
what their children are watching.
Many. parents are concerned
about their young children watch-


ing programs with content that's
more suitable for older children or
adults.
That's why the television
industry designed a TV ratings
system to give parents more infor-
mation about the content and
age-appropriateness of TV pro-.
grams. These ratings, called the'
TV Parental Guidelines, are mod-
eled after the familiar movie rat-
ings which parents have known-
and valued for nearly 30 years..
They are designed to be simple to
use, easy to understand and
handy to find. The guidelines.
apply to all television programs,.
including those directed specih-
cally to young, children. Sports:
and news shows will not carry the
guidelines.
The TV Parental Guidelines
can be used in conjunction with
the V-Chip, a device built into
most newer television sets. to
allow parents to block out pro-
grams they don't want their chil-
dren to see. The V-Chip electroni-
cally reads television program-
ming ratings and allows parents.
to block programs they believe are
unsuitable for their children.
By looking at the televis-ion
programs our children watch with
wholesomeness in mind, we can
better use that media for eduda-
tional and entertainment purpos-
es. What are, our children view-
ing? An important question.

This Week's Headline
Story: Saturday night was filled
with glamour arid excitement as
students began to arrive aL Prom.
One cou Id tell that weeks of piepa-
ration had gone into making this a:.
special night. The Centennial
Buildings doors opened to reveal,
the theme of "A Walk In The'.
Clouds". Girls finally got the
chance to show off the beauty that
took all day to do. Gowns sparkled..
under the lights of the red runway
carpet. Onlookers provided a great
audience as they cheered each
couple as they arrived. One thing
is for sure, smiling from all the pic-
tures left people with v ery sore
cheeks. The Senior Walk gave
seniors a last chance to take in
memories of prom to one day rem-
inisce over and juniors a chance to
see what the future held. Chns
Knox and Santana Harris were
voted Prince and Pnncess of the
Promi while Sanifel Chambers and:
Linette Bailey walked away witi
King and Queen of Prom. The
night ended on a good note; no one
got hurt or arrested and people '
still managed to have a good tame.
Farewell: This will be the last
time readers will hear from me and
I hope my words have left one
informed as well as entertained.
Nlay these words give one encour-
agement and inspiration: "Life is a
challenge so challenge Life." This
has been Linette Bailey bringing
this week's Shark Talk. So long.....

By: Andy Wilkinson :Financial
Advisor
Almost every week, we read or
hear news about companies mnerg-
ing with, or being acquired' by,
other companies.
As an investor, you nray have
a personal interest in these tran -
actions, especially if they involve
companies whose shares ")ob
own. The questions often asked by
shareholders of companies involv-
ed in mergers and acquisitions
generally concern the effects of
these corporate actions on the
value of their, holdings, and
whether or not to buy or sell
stocks in the affected companies.
If you own shares in a com-
pany that intends to buy, another
firm, your first concern should be
whether the acquisition will dilute
your current stockholding, espe-
cially if additional stock is being
issued to finance the, acquisition.
You should also. inquire if the
acquisition will require substan-7
tial borrowing, thereby increasing
your ,company's debt load.
Another concern you should have
in this scenario is how the acqui-
sition will impact the future of the
combined company. and whether
this will affect your reasons for
owning the stock.
On the other hand, what if
you own shares in, the company
being acquired? One ,question you,
will probably ask is whether you
should sell your stock immedi-
ately. While each transaction dif-
fers and must be examined
individually, in most cases there
will-be no reason for you to rush
out and sell your shares.' A quali-
fled offer to buy your stock will be
explained, at length in a mailing
from the acquirer, as well as the
-type of payment (cash, securities..
or a combination of both).
Prudence should dictate your
i next rhoves. Watch the stock
tables in the financial section of
your local newspaper to, see how
the market reacts to the aoquisi-
tion. Has the market; price of the
stock risen above the offering
price? If so, it's possible that the
offer will be increased; or that a
competitive bid is about to be
made bi another acquirer. On the
other hand, if the market price
remains below the offering' price,
you may want to consider .selling.
However, you should bear in
mind that the acquirng company
is under no obligation to buy at
that price and maL modify or
withdraw the offer., You should
'.,aso remember, that the sale of
your stock might have potential.

Beware: Alligators Are On The Move!


Alligator mating season is
upon us, and this is a time of year
when alligators become more visi-
ble as they travel between lakes
and rivers in search of mates.
Each spring, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) regularly receives
reports of alligators in back yards
and swimming pools or crossing
highways. Occasionally, alligators
also turn up in some unusual'


spots.
Residents of one north Florida
town, leaving church after a
Sunday morning service, were
surprised to find an alligator just
outside the main doors. The alli-
gator climbed approximately 20
steps to reach the spot. Church
members exited through the side
doors and awaited a licensed
(FWC) alligator trapper to remove
the animal.

"In Florida, living with alliga-
tors is a part of our tropical
lifestyle, and generally, we
Floridians have adapted well,"
FWC alligator biologist Harry
Dutton said. "Most of us know
feeding alligators is illegal; we
know not to swim at night and not
to allow pets to swim in waters
inhabited by gators."
Alligators are part of Florida's
natural heritage and play an
important role in'the state's wet-
lands ecology. As predators, alli-
gators remove, the sick and weak.
from their prey animal popula-
tions, ensuring that only the
strongest and fastest live to repro-
duce. Also, the "gator holes," wal-
lowed out by alligators in
wetlands during drought, provide
the only available drinking water
for many other species.
"An understanding of these
facts and broader knowledge of
alligator behavior will ensure that
humans and alligators" continue
their long-term coexistence,"
Dutton said.
To report a nuisance alligator,
contact the nearest regional office
of the FWC, The phone numinber is,
inside the front cover of most
phone directories.
