Lisa Curry Student f Year"



Selected to Represent 13 School Service Region
Sep-pHfnTlecpteid^Kpnn ^rupp''P'Y


by Tim Croft
Talk to students and faculty
of Port St. Joe High School about
senior Lisa Curry and what comes
gushing forth is a torrent of
superlatives. ..
So when Curry was selected
as the .regional Student of the.
Year in a competition sponsored
by Buffalo, Rock/Pepsi 'and televi-
sion station WJHG-7, it was of lit-
tlie surprise to those who know,
her well. .
Excellence is as characteristic
of the Princeton-bound Curry as
her long brown' hair, easy' smile
and wide engaging eyes.
"Not only is she very talented,'
very, intelligent, but she works
hard," said Port St. Joe .High,
School principal Chris Earley.
In winning Student of the.
Year for the 13-school service area,
of Buffalo Rock in Panama City,
Curry edged out 23 other high
school seniors and earned 82,000"
in scholarship money.
The compeuution. in general.
came from, larger high schools in'
larger communities.
She also won the right to trav-
:el to Birrminghani. Ala., on June
1, to,compete against 13 students
similarly honored in Buffalo
Rock-sponsored competitions :in,
Alabama and Florida.
There, some $15,000. in
scholarship money will be handed
out. S10.000 going to the first-
place winner.
I consider 'it a real honor,"
Curry said. "And it's gratifying for,
all the things I've done in high
-- -school." "
Summarizing those accom-
plishments in a few paragraphs
,,would be akin to rowing the
Apalachicola with a.spoon' as 'an-
oar.
The ufnweighted .4.0 GPA
comes almost as a given. -So to
her participation with the school's.
chapter of the National Honor
Society, for which served as pres-
ident this year. .
Curry has participated in the
Student Government Association
she's the senior class %ice-pres-
ident and the KeV Club.
She was also on the school's
Odyssey of the Mind team.
"She has the brains but does-
n't flaunt it," said guidance coun-
selor Melissa Ramse .
Gray matter is only part of the
package.
A self-described ham, Curry
has been a fixture the past sever-
al years on stages other than the
classroom.
She sings with the school
musical group, Shenanigans, was
Gulf County's Junior Miss and'
performed the role of Dorothy in
this week's school production of
the.Wizard of Oz.
"She and I have been creative,
I'll say partners, for the last three-
and-a-half years," said. teacher


Ann Comforter. "She is one of the
most creative: students I've ever
had the opportunity to work
with."
As Ramsey wrote in her letter
recommending Curry to Prince-
ton, she expects to one day see
Curry's name in marquee lights or
watch as she wins a Nobel Prize.
Did we mention varsity volley-
ball, yet? How about soccer with a
select team in Bay County? Or the
many advanced-placement cours-
es Curry took online in addition to
her regular course-load?
Friends will dispel any notion
that Curry is some kind of Step-
S'ford Student
"She's super," said fnend and
fellow senior Ken Peak. "She's
cool. very easy to talk with. She'll
help you with anything you need."
Comforter provided one
example.
Onrie day Shenanigans was
performing for students in the
school cafeteria during lunch
periods.
The music didn't soothe the
anxiety of one rrmiddle-school stu-
dent, who was in near hysterics
over a looming math test.
After the set, Comforter asked
Curry if she could help.
Curry wrapped up her sand-
,'wich, took over an empty office
and proceeded to spend 20 min-
utes of her 25-minute lunch
break tutonng the other girl in


deciphering geometry.
Curry wouldn't stop until she
was sure the other girl under-
stood the covered material', Com-
forter said.


'That, to me, is really impor-
tant," Comforter continued. "She
has her feet solidly planted on the
. ground and-she is considerate of
other people.-"


Kimberly Pickett,. a best
friend, and senior, said, "She is
always there, willing to lend a
hand."

- Fight at Wewahitchka

High Being Addressed


by Tim Croft
A fistfight between two stu-
dents in a hallway re-ignited into
a melee inside a classroom last
week at Wewahitchka High
School. -
One students .was treated at
the hospital and released follow-
ing the fight, which school and
law enforcement officials indicat-
ed may have had racial under-
tones.
A dozen students were sent
home and face possible suspen-
sion as well as potential criminal
misdemeanor charges, school and
law enforcement officials said.
: All but one of the students is
under 18 years of age.
Any possible suspensions,
which could range from three to
10 days under district policy,
and/or formal criminal charges
were pending at press time as offi-
cials continued to investigate the
incident.
It is possible that one or more


students would face expulsion,
district school officials indicated.
"We are not going to overre-
act, there is not going to be a rush
to judgement," said Superindent
of Gulf County Schools Jerry Kel-
ley.
"We are going to have a thor-
ough investigation and make our
determination from there."
Dr. Bill Truby, principal of
Wewahitchka High, said Wednes-
day morning that. school officials
continue to sift through informa-
tion about and eyewitness
accounts of the incident.
A student assembly was held,
at school in the days following the
altercation to address what had
-happened.
Truby has taken several
steps, which are outlined in the
"School News". area of the today's
B section.
"I think we are on top of it,"
Kelley said. "We have to be vigi-
lant. We have to do our job and
treat it seriously."


We talk a lot about religion
and, our faith, but we don't walk.
the walk," Chaparro said, echoing
the sign that adorns his back-
pack.
"God gave me a different life.
a life on the road. What I'm doing
is pretty monumental. It's bigger
',than, me., Sometimes I stop and
think about the fact that I'm
walking around the country and I
think, "Am Inuts?'"
Maybe, Committed?. Certain-
ly.
Facing a tough time in his
life, a "dari-k trinal" as he called it,
Chaparro began a period of intro-
spection and examination of the
world spinning uncontrollably
around him.
He talked with his parents
and friends. Having been involved
Sin the church since age 12, Chap-
arro consulted pastors at his
church.
What evolved in his mind and
soul was a calling to. undertake
what, has become a sevenr-year
mission. ,
As a sign outside a church in
Panama City attests, it "takes
soles to save souls."
Chaparro .started in Dover,
because, it was close to Washing-
ton, D.C., where he. hopes his
walk will end with an. amble
around the capital. ,.
His counter-clockwise trek -
described as a walk up the East-
ern seaboard through Maine
before he "took a left" and walked
to Everett, Wash. and "took
another left ..." -' was in part
inspired by Joshua's epic walk
around Jericho as recounted in
the Bible. ,
When conditions are ideal,
Chaparro, whose top speed is
around 3 mph, can average 17-22
miles a day.
Such days, however, are
interspersed with far more in
which weather conditions, Illness
or other factors have impeded his
progress.
He has been slowed by pneu-
monia four times and family ill-
ness and death have also taken
him off the road.
His first two winters, in
Michigan and North Dakota,
spanned some six months when
the snow and cold froze his steps.
He also took nearly a year off.
after crossing the desert of Ari-


zona, and New Mexico just to
recharge his mental batteries.
"I had started to walk out of
habit rather than the spirit I had
when I started." Chaparro said. "I
need, connectedness. I need peo-
ple."
.People, particularly the kind-
ness of strangers, have 'buoyed
his gait throughout his walk.
They have provided. food,
shelter, spending money, a help-
ing hand :and emotional sutste-
nance.
And, whether it, could be
called fate, coincidence or 'the
hand of a higher power, folks have
reached out to. Chaparro at con-
sistently judicious times.
"The walk isn't about the
miles, but people and the.timing
:of things," Chaparro said.
.As example, consider his
arrival in Port St. Joe.
Chaparro, happened to be
mailing a box to a church in Min-
nesota at the local post office.
A conversation with a married
couple in the post office spilled
over to include the clerk at a local
church.
After hearing of Chaparro's
journey, the clerk made a few
phone calls.
One secured him a room at a
Highland View motel, paid for by
the church. Another lined up a
warm meal at a downtown restau-
rant; again the church picked up
the tab.
After supper, Chaparro was
hitchhiking back to the motel
when a man on a motorcycle
pulled up.
Turned out he was the pastor
of the aforementioned church
and the father of Chaparro's wait-
ress at the restaurant.
After switching vehicles, the
pastor drove Chaparro to the
motel in his daughter's car and

SEDITORIAL OMMENTARY Hunker Down With Kes by Kesley Colbert
COLUMVN ."* ,p*,':


Public Schools On


Offense in Their Defense
In last week's edition of The Star, reporter Tim Croft
broke a story that has since made its rounds throughout the
state. The plight of public vs. private high schools in athletic
competition has Been the subject of several editorials and arti-
cles in this publication over the years: It now appears that
many of the area's public schools (22) have determined efforts
to negotiate a fair playing field between public and private
schools have been fruitless.
Public schools were left with a tough decision to make
after getting no relief from the Florida High School Athletic
Association's, FHSAA, governing body. The pleas from small
public schools for fairness have fallen on deaf ears.
It's ironic that as I started to write this week's column,
Janis and Allen Minzner brought by a copy of the April 23
Wall Street Journal. Right on the front page was an article
outlining almost exactly the same scenario being played out
in New England.
Small private schools recruit star athletes from around the
globe then beat up on small public schools who draw their tal-
ent from a pool limited to the small rural communities where
they are located.
It was just a few years ago that Port St. Joe High's boys
basketball team lost out in the finals of the state playoffs in
Lakeland. They were facing a team of international all-stars
hiding under the disguise -of a private school within the
FHSAA.
FHSAA has failed miserably in efforts to regulate these
lower division schools. In their defense, I'm sure most of the
folks making these decisions would have a difficult time relat-
ing to the demographics of small communities, where the
majority of these affected public schools are located.
A city the size of Tallahassee often times has more people
doing business in one of its high rises than Gulf County has
in the entire county, including our neighbors in Mexico
Beach.
Wewahitchka and Port St. Joe schools draw from a popu-
lation base of somewhere around 12.000 people (after sub-
tracting prisoners). When you narrow those figures down to
the number of available student athletes the pool gets
extremely small.
On the other hand, there is an abundance of opportunities
for small private schools, many of which are located in very
large communities, to draw from an extremely large pool of
student athletes. Private schools' academic and athletic excel-
lence can often be used to create (as Tim penned it) "athletic
magnet schools".
I know of at least one local student athlete who was "invit-
ed" for a full ride "scholarship" to one of the perennial power-
house private schools in south Florida. If a public school were
to offer incentives or openly recruit players in a similar fash-
ion they would be addressed by the FHSAA. Just imagine if
one of our county high schools offered incentives to lure a top
quality athlete from another area school or county.
Two entirely different sets of standards exist and public
schools are the red-headed step-child being told to accept
things the way they are or lump it.
My hat goes off to our local school leaders for being at the
forefront of this exodus. At present the move only includes the
sport of football, but similar action could be just around the
corner for other sports programs.
Hopefully this move will turn the heads of FHSAA officials
and they can recognize how unfair current policies are.
Somehow I doubt this will be the case, but I have often won-
dered about the legalities of public and private schools having
to compete on an uneven playing field. This could be a good
time to review the possibility of a class action suit to help set-
tle the issue.

Boston Braves and the St. Louis
Cardinals between 1911 and 1915.
I don't bring him up today because
of his fairly unremarkable big
league career. I'm interested in his
nickname.....
Hub Perdue was known during
his playing days as The Gallatin



--- ----


Squash.
I have been pondenng on that
one for a while now! How does
someone get to be *The Gallatin
Squash"? Did he hit the baseball
so extra hard as "to squash it"?
Was he shaped kinda small at the
top and a little bigger around
toward the bottom? Was he yellow?
Did they grow a lot of squash Ain
Gallatin?
I've known nicknames that
were the exact opposite of the indi-
\idual they portrayed. Clifton
Chambers was the slowest moving
creature in all of our growing up
days. He ate slow, he walked slow,
he talked slow, he thought slow,
he worked slow. ,e even sweated
slow! We nature ally called him,
Speedy.
Some nicknames were bdin to
a person. Virgil Stallcup" was a
pretty decent short stop. He was
tall, rang,. and had a touch of a
Huckleberry Finn look. lHe was
country to the core but his most
distinguishing characteristic was
the flaming hair. He was Red to
one and all.
Mr. Grady Featherstone was
getting' on us pretty good down at
the, post office for not following his
instructions to the letter. He was
the local postmaster and ,his
orders evidently came from a high-
er source, "I'm not the big man. I
don't set the rules. The big man
works in Memphis. Don't ask me
why again. I'm not the big man...."
'Course. he immediately, and
forever, in one brief nanosecond,
became The Big Alan forever.
That's often the way with nick-
names.
The good names are handed
down. Bobby Brewer caught a-few
games back in. our little league
days. We have called him Yogi for
the ensuing forty years. Now, he
didn't look like Yogi Berra. He was-
n't necessarily the. all-time best
catcher ever to come out of that
league. And he was not enamored
with the New York Yankees. He
squatted down behind the plate
one hot, sunny afternoon, some-
one took a look, thought of Yogi,
arid the relationship just "took".
We called Mary E. Pendleton
Face. If you ever run, across her
you will understand....
I've seen nicknames that were
hard to figure. We called Hollis
Mayo Frenchy. I have no idea why.
He didn't talk funny. I'don't think
he looked French. It wouldn't have
mattered anyway, back in those
days none of us had ever seen a
Frenchman! Mayo doesn't seem to
be a name of French descent. I
can't for the life of me recall how
he came by' that particular
moniker.
All of this bi-ings 'me back to
Hub Perdue. Why would anyone be
called The Gallatin Squash? Do
you reckon his father'had a veg-
etable farm? Maybe as a child he
piled his Western Flyer high with
squash and visited every house in
Gallatin trying to raise a little pic-

Still Doing Prom Up Right


IT WAS PROM. NIGHT last.
week end., The Centennial Build-
ing, where they hold the Prom. is
just a stone toss down from my
house and I watched the festivi-
ties a'gathering.
First, the limousines flocked
in, loaded with kids. It seems as
if kids can't go to a prom, any-
more, without renting a limou-
sine to carry their dates in style!
The young ladies are allt
decked out in their long dress
finery.embellished with a corsage
the boy has presented her with,
just as it has been for ages. That
much hasn't changed.
The boys are all decked out
in rented tuxedos, fit to kill.'
You'll never see them this
cleaned up again.
They definitely have put on.
their best bib and tucker and
even shined their shoes!

I REMEMBER THE week
end of my prom.
Everything is just as it was
'the other week end. except for


the tuxedo and the limousines.
And, of course, we did our
own decorating of the Centennial
Building. We cut the final classes
of the day-for about two or three.
days-borrowed two or three
pick-up trucks and were careful
to borrow only the ones who had
a "B" or "C" gas rationing sticker
and a decent set of tires.
Then, every afternoon we
would hit the woods.
We cut and hauled ti-ti bush-
es, shrubs, vines, magnolia
leaves and anything green we
could get our hands on and filled
up every nook and cranny of that
Centennial Building!'
Then, we started work on our


punch bowl.
We'd go to the ice plant [they
had spch things, in those daysJ]
and ordered a 300 pound block
* of ice, frozen to, our specifica-,
tions,
Mr. Kilbourn would fill one of
his ,300 gallon freezer ,cans and'
let it begin to freeze. About this
time, we'd get up a bouquet f
sdme sort of' flowers 'and drop.
them into the can of freezing.
water. The can would continue'
freezing until just a bowl sized
depression was left unfrozen in
thie top of the can, but abotre the.
bouquet of flowers.
Then, the block of ice was
emptied, and we had our punch


000


bowl, /complete, with a spray of
flowers, frozen in the base of the
block of ice.
That frozen block 'of ice was
the centerpiece of our decora-
tions.

THEN' WE'D WASH and
shine and borrow the family car
for the night, scrounge up'a gas
coupon for the night and we were
in business.
No limousines
No tuxedos!
No fancy decorations. We had
done it ourselves
We had a better time at our
Prom than the kids ever thought
of having two weeks ago.
Every set of parents prepared
a different "dish" to furnish the
food for the banquet meal and we
enjoyed a "pot-luck" supper.
Of course, we' had a dance
band come and Ilay for us.
What s a prom without dancing?
We were. a little primitive with
our plans and preparations, but
we looked forward to our Prom


night with even more expectation
than 'Juniors and Seniors do-
today.
It wasn't a question of
whether or not you were going; it
was expected of every young man
and woman to be in attendance
at the Prom, if they weren't too
sick or disabled to get there

IT WAS THE preliminaries to
the Prom, which sort of set the
stage of anticipation for the "big
event!"
We had, what we called, a
progressive dinner, a few days,
prior to prom night.
Several individual parents
would fix one dish and we would
go from house to housed, eating
different things, until we finally
had a full four' course meal.
It was fun! And delicious!
I remember, in my Junior
year, I was ill [with kidney infec-
tion, of course] and Dr. Ward'
allowed me to participate in the
progressive dinner but warned
me to refrain from eating any


pork.
Well, wouldn't you know, the
)mother who was to serve the
'meat,' served hamF

.PROM AND BANQUET time
was a very special time to all us
young men and women and we
wouldn't have missed it for any-
thing. t
I remember things 'we
did, even today and even though
it has been a long time since we
indulged.
It is supposed to be the high-
light of a student's high school
career, but I sometimes wonder if
it still is, with the parents mak-
ing and paying for all the prepa-
rations?
Prom and banquet used to be
a month-long period of planning
and preparation, for the kids.
Today, they are required only to
'come, sit down and enjoy them-
selves. Many, don't even take
advantage of that!

McClellan Fuels

Young Engines


by Tim Croft
Stoking young furnaces with
the proper fuel is Linda McClel-
lan's message.
She'll be delivering it to coun-
ty elementary school students
beginning next week.
Dr. McClellan is the latest
addition to the country extension
office.
She will divide her time.
between Bay and Gulf counties -
a provision to securing the state
funding for her position champi-
oning the cause of proper nutri-
tion to kids, particularly those.
from homes where money and
food is scant.
"Anything you do with kids is
important," McClellan said. "We
want to teach them to eat better
and hopefully take that back to
the parents. That's the key,"
McClellan will work in
schools where at least 50 percent
of students are eligible for free or
reduced lunches and come from
households eligible for food
stamps.
In the' county, that means
Wewahitchka and Port St. Joe ele-
mentary schools.
She will teach kids about the
food pyramid, what foods' are
essential and how many servings
and balancing diets.


'The main thing (with such
kids) is the lack of fruits and veg-
etables," McClellan said.
Working in conjunction with
Louise Jones, who works from the
extension office with adults on
issues of nutrition, McClellan will
provide information and guid-
ance.
"We want to teach them to
use those things that are avail-
able to them and where they can
call to get assistance," McClellan
said.
While assuming nothing.
For example, McClellan said
it's taken for. granted that most
people know about greens, but
Jones has fashioned a presenta-
tion that shows real greens, i.e.
collards and mustard greens,. to
adults.
She explains the differences
iri appearance, how'to cook them
and what nutritional value they
provide.
In other words, the basics.
"You want to them familiar
with things that maybe they
aren't familiar with," McClellain
said.
In another era, all of this fell
under: the umbrella of home eco-,
nomics. Now they call it family
consumer sciences.

Walking from Page 1
prayed with him.
"That's one reason I don't do
trails, because the walk isn't
about the scenery, it's about the
people," Chaparro said.
"I've never had to ask or made
my needs known. It comes down
to, do I have faith or do I have -a
Visa." ,
Take that church inf Minneso-
ta, which he came upon along his
walk.
Youth at the church have
become his support team, assist-
ing with equipment, mail and
storage of the journals he's filled
with tales from the road and
reams of correspondence.
Chaparro is exploring, him-
self and the country, 4s an astro-
naut studies space or Columbus
the Caribbean.
His discoveries have been, he''
said, a mixed bag.,
"Our curiosity, that sense of
adventure has been "squelched,"
he said. "That curiosity to say,
let's see what will happen when
'we go down this road today.
S'""Go to a campground and you
don't see any tents anymore. Tney
are all in.these big armored RVs."
Chaparro trained for nearly,
18 months in preparation -for his
walk.
He read books on backpack-
ing and hiking and steadily gath-
ered the, equipment necessary to
live by his wits and faith for
months on end.
Other than his bouts with'
pneumonia, and on occasion
dehydration and hypothermia,
Chaparro has avoided serious ill-
ness.
That's not to say there haven't
been chilling moments. Since
9/11 he can't recall the image of
the Twin Towers as he walked
toward New York without an
internal shudder.
Chaparro has walked through
the meteorological gamut and
found rain to the worst.
"I'd rather have a blizzard," he
said. "Rain is just dismal. You
sleep in dampness. Your boots are
wet. Everything is clammy and
sticky."' '.
When it's all over, hopefully in
eight months to a year, Chaparro


Two Arrested in Fraud Case


Setting It Straight
Some people have received
letters advertising a new organiza-
tion called the Gulf .Coast-
Conservation Association, Inc.-
This group is not affiliated
with the same entity as the GULF
.AND EAST BAY SEA TURTLE
PATROL, INC. I repeat, IS NOT the
sameIll
The Gulf and East Bay Sea
Turtle Patrol covers from Indian
Pass to Cape San Bias East (Eglin
boundary east) and from Port St.
Joe to Tyndall east boundary thus
the name Gulf and East Bay Sea
Turtle patrol;
The newly formed group, is a
turtle group with the St. Joseph's
Bay Aquatic Preserve and serves
ONLY St.. Joseph's Peninsula
between the Eglin site west anc.'
St. Joseph's State Park.
Our incorporation was
formed, as theirs is, to be eligible
for grant monies and donations,
i.e., vehicles, educational monies.
for materials, etc. ,
The reason for our incorpora-
tion was because the formerly
known Gulf County Turtle Patrol
gave up their duties of turtling on
St. Joseph's Peninsula to the
State of Florida after our personal'
vehicle was so badly rusted and
another 'could not be bought at
the time :and donations of one
could not be received because we
were not incorporated.
Our group, Gulf and East Bay
Sea Turtle-Patrol, Inc. continues
in its 12th year, one year as an.
incorporation, as a group of vol-
unteers with no paid personnel.
S Grant writing requirements
and receiving of donations make it
a necessity for both organizations
to be of incorporated status.
Eglin AF Base and St. Joseph's
State Park are not included as
they have their own personnel.
Our objectives remain the
same, however....to preserve our
.environment and the wildlife that
shares with us this great Earth!
VWe appreciate any donations
and are a 501-3C group so that
you may use your donation-,as a'
tax write-off.
If you wish to donate to the
Gulf and East Bay Sea Turtle.
Patrol, Inc.. please contact Maryn

wants to -"settle, down and have .
one place to call home."
For now, though, the road,
-and his God, calls. A man made :.
bitter by personal travails when
he first strode the road. Chaparro
*has found a semblance of
redemption on America's asphalt.
"By and .large we are a friend-
ly people," Chaparro said. "The
criminals are definitely in the'
rrunority. There are some really $
neat people out there.
"But we don't question as
much, we aren't as entical in our
thinking, as we should be.
'It's O.K. to be honest. It's
O.K. to have integrity rather, than
try not to offend anybody. I think
it's O.K. not to tolerate some
things, rather than maintain this,
,political correctness. :.
"NIMy prayer is that the church
will rise to the occasion of who we
are and what we need. This walk
is inspirational to others, and it's
inspirational to me."
And with at, Chaparro was
moving down the road.

people that think permitting an
animal to have unwanted babies
is 'no problem' since they can be

People fail to realize there is
no way of getting government
funding to support our cause and
'that a few caring people end up
doing all the work of caring for
these beautiful creatures. More of
us need to get involved and try to

who landed the $1,000 32.3 lb.
winner.
First Place in the grouper cat-
egory was taken by Woody Owens
aboard the Nancy Ann (Ted Lee
Caught) with a 26.7 lbs fish.
Second PlaceW went to Robbie
* Yarbrough aboard the : High
S Anxiety (Brianr Horneck Caught)
With a 26.5 lbs. grouper. Third
Place was awarded to Ron Martin
aboard the Centsless (Ron Martin
Caught) with an 239 lbs.
Grouper. ..
'In the snapper category,

High Anxiety, (Brian Horneck
Caught). took First Place with a
19.3 lb fish. Cheshire Trawick's- .

gory, Buddy Boyette, aboard
Neely Lewis' Ojaran, took 1st
Place with a 4.1 lbs. fish. Second
Place was awarded to Manuel,
Magana, aboard the Instigator
(Mark Magana Caught) with a 3.2
lb. Spanish.

Tinkering With Speed


by Tim Croft.
Most evenings Gary Whitfield
isn't hard to find.
Stop by Connell's Auto Sal-
vage in Wewahitchka and it's like-
ly Whitfield will be underneath or
inside his No. 17 dark blue late
model racer.
Sometimes until the rooster
roaming the yard has gone hoarse
from crowing.
"Watching the sun come up
while working on a car, I've done
that a couple of times," Whitfield
said with a sheepish grin.
Far from the bright lights and
big tracks of NASCAR, a fair dis-
tance even from dirt-track meccas
like Cordele, Ga. and Phenix City,
Ala., Whitfield symbolizes racing's
ro6ts.
'.Back to the days when men,
and boys, and a few intrepid
women, tinkered and massaged
their cars all week before scraping
paint on the weekend..
And come Monday, tear it all
down and start again.
It was as much about con-
struction as it was momentum,
the thrill of assembling as much
as the charge for speed.
"I get excited about setting it
up," Whitfield said. "I,do it all
myself. You'just keep tinkering.
I'm always trying to get it going
faster."
'thirtysomething Whitfield,
like so many his age, got started
racing as a youngster..
Name it and he likely raced it.
- Go-karts, cars, motorcycles.


"I've tned to always race
something, whether it was legal or
not." Whitfield said.
At the invitation of a friend.
he took in a Saturday night of rac-
ing at North Florida Motor Speed-
way.
Whitfield remembers the
date: Apnril 4, 1993.
I'd sit in the stands and
think I could race better than
anybody out there." he said.
By the following Tuesday he
had a car, a S350 Oldsmobile LTD
bomber. It was an old fire chiefs
car and still had the fire depart-
ment emblem on the side.
That Saturday night, WVhit-
field and his fire chief's car were
heating up the track.
He was the Rookie of the Year
at North Florida Motor Speedway,
in 1993, its second year of .exis-
fence.
* "Back then you could run into
each other and laugh about it and
- be back next, week and do it


He essentially taught himself
how to build ever-faster cars.
Other racers, Whitfield said,
"will tell you nothing, especially if
he runs in the same class as you."
'So Whitfield pored through
books and magazines and. like a
mad scientist in his laboratory, he
experimented.
And experimented.
"It took a lot reading. talking
and tinkering." Whitfield said.
i"t's all tnal and error.
"If I get started in something I
don't want nothing whipping me."
The goal was simple.
"If you can make that thing
pay your bills and pay for your
parts, you are doing good," Whit-
field said. "You ain't going to make


- -Wa- .. 'U's.....r4


- again," Whitfield said.
But as the number'of classifi-
cations competing at North Flori-
da Motor Speedway grew,, so did,
Whitfield's racing horizon.
He, rose steadily through, the
ranks of super street, hobby and
ultimately to late model.

Racing became a family affair.
Gary's wife Shannon has compet-
ed off and on at the Wewa track
since 1994. -
"I grew up around it," Shan-
non said. "My dad raced every-
thing, cars, motorcycles, Go-
karts, boats.
"It's fun. Any kind of racing, I
enjoy it."
*They apparently have passed
along theirpassion in their genes.


In addition to a daughter,
Erika, 10, the Whitfields have a
son, Kyle, 11, who is anxiously
anticipating his chance behind
the wheel.
"The kids love (racing),".Shan-
non said.
Gary added, "If (Kyle) was old
enough to let him out there, he'd
be out there."
There, of course, is North
Florida Motor Speedway, which'
Whitfield said is turning a corner
under new owner Ben Watson.
New rules, a refurbished
technical area, including scales,
and a tech judge are key.
"The track has been up and
down so much, it's hurt him,"
Whitfield said. "There were years
there where the same cars would
win week after week. People
stopped coming.
"But he's doing pretty well
right now. He's got it going good
and I think he can keep. it going
that way. If he keeps the rules
right and pays the money he's
paying, the drivers will come.,
"Everybody you. talk to who
has come to this track says there
is no better dirt track around
here."
Meanwhile, Whitfield's cur-
rent battle is with a stubborn
handling problem on the right
side of his car, which is sponsored
by Residential Design and Draft-
ing Inc., K&M Homes and. Kyle.
Car Clean and Detailing.
On a recent weekday evening
he was underneath, changing the
springs and doing some chassis
adjustments in hopes of impro'v-
ing his season, which to date has
included two victories inr heat
races but none in feature events.
Ever body thinks they'll do
'all these things to add horsepow-,
er, but if you spin your tires and
can't handle the turns, it won't do
any good." Whitfield said.
'You can be as fast as you
-w+A-i ow 1,_csir 1-+s if 4+1

Spontaneous

Pain


If the pain is in a tooth that
hasn't been recently treated,
sensitivity to cold or sweet/sour
indicates the presence of decay
or a lQst filling. This allows the
elements to penetrate closer to
the nerve. -
Pain from heat or chewing is
far more serious. This indicates
that the nerve is dying,. If not
treated immediately, the pain
could increase and an infection
and swelling (abscess) may
result. See your dentist immedi-


ately. Untliyou get to,your dentist,
you can help ease the pain tem-
porarily with cold to the area. Ice
cubes work best. You can apply
them directly to the tooth. The
nerve is in the throes of dying
and the pain will recur as the ice
melts.
Pain on chewing is also
mostly the result of deep decay
and/or a dying nerve. This type of
pain, however, could also indi-
cate that the bite is unbalanced
(possible from a recent filling) or
that the tooth is fractured. In
either case, again, you must. see
your dentist immediately.

Ground Broken for PSJ's New Sunset Coastal Grill


A groundbreaking ceremony
was held on Friday, April 26 at the
site for the new Sunset Coastal
Grill, One of Sunset Coastal Grill's
goals is to be a cornerstone of the
businesses to help make Port St.
Joe a destination city and help
promote the awareness of the
beauty of St. Joe Bay, and relaxed
style of life that draws so many
visitors to the area. The menu has
been designed to showcase local
fish and seafood and high quality
beef to create a unique dining
experience. The building itself is
designed to be casually elegant
with a relaxed'atmosphere incor-
porating the incredible scenery
offered by St. Joe Bay.
The restaurant will be located
on'the bayside property next to
Capital City Bank. Thoughtful
building placement has been used
to keep as many of the pine and
palm trees as possible. The park-
ing area will be a natural surface
of lime rock with strategically
placed lighting for safety. Lighted
pathways have been incorporated
in the common areas to guide
guests to .and from the restaurant
building safely. The landscaping
is intended to be low key with
native plantings to be predomi-
nant. Butterfly and herb gardens
will be established to further the
natural appeal of the restaurant
setting.
The stunning view of Port St
Joe's original ship port off the
shore from Frank Pate Park and
the City Pier Gazebo are the inspi-
ration for the layout of the new
restaurant. As'guests arrive they,
will be guided to dinner by walk-
ifig down a lighted path through
the native palms, live oaks and
pines and tropical plantings to the
Bahamian styled restaurant. The
entry area will be decorated using
local cypress and tropical print
fabric to help create a vacation
mood. The incredible sunsets that
occur on the bay will be show-


cased from the bayside porch and
main dining area, both have been
set up to capture the view. Enjoy
your favorite steak or shrimp din-
ner while gazing at the City
Gazebo framed by the sunset.
Upon entering you will be
greeted by Jacque -Hance, cur-
rently the Ship's Store manager at
the Port St Joe Marina. Jacque
and her husband, Richard, moved
from Panama City to open the
Marina in 1999 and have made
the area their home. Jacque will
manage the dining rooms and
wait staff to ensure a pleasant
dining experience. Patti Blaylock
will be managing the restaurant
and kitchen operations to assure
quality arid timeliness of your
order. The Blaylocks, natives of
northwest Florida, have been vis-,
iting the Port St Joe area for over
25 years and have made their full-
time home on the Cape.
One of the highlights of
Sunset Coastal Grill will be the
use of the wide variety of fish,
shellfish, shrimp, scallops and
oysters available locally. The din-
ner menu will include some of the
unique flavors of coastal cuisine,
blending a variety of flavors from
around the Gulf of Mexico. A wide
selection of fresh gulf seafood will
be offered as well as gilled steaks
and filets, pork chops, chicken
and pasta entrees. Favorites and
signature items will always be on
the. menu with a selection of spe-
cial items available each evening
to ensure that the freshest variety
of choices are always available.
Sunset Coastal Grill is a fam-
ily oriented restaurant offering
menu for children under 12.
Seniors portions will be available
upon request. ,
Patti and Jacque are inter-
ested in participating in the com-
munity either personally or
through the use of the restaurant.
Jacque is currently a member of
the 'Downtown Redevelopment


Association. Both Patti and-
Jacque are members of the PSJ
Garden Club. They look forward
to supporting Gulf County's edu-
cational and civic organizations
either through personal participa-
tion or use of the restaurant
building. The restaurant facility or'
one of the rooms may be reserved
for club luncheons or business
meetings. Internet access and
presentation capability has been a
consideration in the design in the
East Dining Room. Catering for,
luncheons" for groups up to 25
people is currently available.
Windolf Construction, a well-
known local general contracting
company, will be supervising the
building of, the Sunset Coastal
Grill. Bob and Delores Windolf
have extensive expenence in com-
mercial construction and are cur-
rently restoring the Port Inn for
David and Trish Warriner. Rex
Wilkinson drew 'the plans and
William Guilford engineered the
structure. Preble-Rish has been
contracted to do the civil engi-.
neering and storm water plan. S.
M. Marley and Associates have
been very helpful- wth the prop-
erty surveys and building place-
ment. Many local officials and
residents have also been instru-
mental in helping get their dream
to this stage .
Look for the Grand Opening of
Sunset Coastal Grill in mid-fall of
this year. For additional informa-
tion or luncheon catering, they

Smoke-Free Amendment Nears
Certification for Fall Ballot


S. Smoke-Free for .Health has
announced that a major goal has
been met in its initiative to protect
Floridians from the dangers of
secondhand smoke in the work-
place: 650.000 voters have signed
petitions urging the issue be put
on the November ballot.
In rallies across the state,
supporters and-'vol(i5teers who-
helped collect the petitions cele-
S, brated the achievement and
vowed to push on to victory on
Election Day.
Last month. Smoke-Free for


Health cleared a major hurdle
when the Florida Supreme Court
unanimously approved the initia-
tive for the fall ballot. With the
Florida Department of State's offi-
cial certification of the remaining
petitions imminent, Smoke-Free
is just days away from official cer-
tification as a proposed amend-
ment to the state Constitution.
Smoke-Free for Health will
save lives and protect the health
of all Flondians, especially chil-
. dren and seniors, by prohibiting
smoking in restaurants and other
workplaces.

High School

by Dr. Bill Truby ', .


If you have been reading this
column over the past three years,
you will know that I try to convey
as much positive information as I
can about our students, faculty,
groups, teams, and community.
The result is, hopefully, a good
feeling about WHS and a respect
for the people associated with it.
Once in a while circumstances
arise that call for us to be.frank,
.candid, and transparent. We have
arrived at such a time....
Last Wednesday we had a ter-
rible set' of events that resulted in
one. of our students going to the
hospital-and being released,
thank God. No one can be proud
or pleased with this, for there
were no victors, no bravado, and
hopefully no encores.
I have always allowed for the-
fact that. young people will grow
arid mature, and eventually the
education they have received and
the good examples set before
them will sink in. Some learn
quickly while others learn later on
in life. Grace and mercy should be
generously applied' along the
way-not to mention patience.
However, when safety and well-
being are bottom line concerns.
other steps must be taken.
To this latter end, we have
taken steps to more fully protect
the people who study and work at
our school. We have a new system.
of signing in. .We arelocking the
back gate. We are inspecting hall
passes as never before. And,
thanks to volunteers and police,
help, there is more supervision
than ever before.
Our goal is to help everyone
overcome, the barriers to a great
education. Some times it is.
through book learning and some
times it is through lif6 learning.
Maybe we need-to concentrate on
the latter a whole lot more. Maybe,
we need higher scores on LIFE
than FCAT. Please think of how
we might enjoin your support to
raise our school grade on such
things as unity, neighborliness,,
and harmony. Now is the time to
-begin to make sorime changes!


One of the big events of the
year was held Monday evening the
29th. The annual "Banquet of
Excellence" was in the gymnasi-
um with over 300 people in atten-
dance. We honored subject area
stars, students who have done
well in a variety of co-curricular
areas and the many 3.25 GPA
award winners and 4.0 students.
In addition we had entertainment
and a host of special guests. We
heard from' former students Joe
Jackson ,and Scott McLemore.
POPS did some specials as did
Jennifer Williams and the singers
from Gulf Coast Community
College. We thank Mrs. Sharon
Gaskin, Mrs. Rosa Feltrop, Mrs.
Lisa Dorman, Ms. LaDonna Price,.
and Mrs. Jordan Linton for their'
sacrifices to make this an evening
to remember. And thanks to our
friends from the African-American
Scholarship Committee for a great
meal.-
If you missed registration,
please see Mr. Monks to work on
your schedule. .
In the world of Wewa sports,
we have-the most exciting news.
Six of our athletes are on the way
to the state track :meet. Pete
Taunton, Eddie Vasquez. Lindsey
Carter, Cerrelle Hanes, Ellen
Manor, and Christina Stroud are
representing WHS on Friday. The
girls' softball team played on
Tuesday at home with the hope of
playing on Thursday and
Saturday. The boys traveled to
Jacksonville on Tuesday to try to
extend their season' The girls won
the district championship last
week beating Munroe 8-0. The
boys were runners-up wh6n they
lost to Chattahoochee 12-5. :
On April 29th we had an
important.eventL We a celebrated
National Day of Prayer with a Lime
of prayer in front of the school at
7:00 a.m. Teens for Christ 'and
FCA hosted the event.
The senior trip is scheduled
for May 3-5 in Orlando. And the
8th grade trip to Sea World is on
May 3rd as well. How quickly the
end of the year is approaching!

Timeouts and consequences
are often effective discipline
strategies with children eight and
under. Consistency is crucial, as,
is following through. .Make good'
on any. promises of discipline or
-g ese yo'u will risk undermining
your authority. Children have to
believe that you mean what you
4 say. This is not to say you can't
give second chances or allow your-'
child a certain margin of error,
but for the most part, you should
follow through with what you say.
Be careful, not to make unre-
alistic threats of; punishment
such as, "Slami that door and,
you'll never:watch TV again!" in
anger, since not following through
could weaken all your threats. If
you threaten to turn the car
around and.go home if the squab-
bling in the backseat doesn't stop,
make. sure you do exactly that.
The lost day at the beach is much
less valuable than the credibility
you'll gain with your kids. .
Huge punishments may take
away your-power as a parent. If
you ground your son for a month,
he may not feel motivated to

change his behavior because
everything has already been taken
away.
Children 9 to 12 can be disci-
plined with natural conse-
quences. As they mature and
request more independence and
responsibility, teaching them to
deal. with the consequences of:
-their behavior is an effective-and
appropriate method of discipline.
For example, if your fifth
grader has not done his home-
work before bedtime, should yoU"
make him stay up or help him fin-
ish? Probably not, since you'll be
missing an opportunity' to teach
him something, about life. If, he
doesn't do his homework earlier.
he'll go to school without it the
next day and suffer the resulting
bad grade.
It's natural for you to want to'
rescue your child from his mis-
., takes, but in the long run you'll
be doing him more of a favor if
you let him fail sometimes. He'll,
see what behaving improperly can
mean, and will probably not make
those mistakes again. However, if
your child does not seem to be
learning from: natural conse-
quences. you should set up your
own consequences to help him
modify his' behavior more effec-
tively.

NHS Helps

Community

In the 2001-2002 school year
at Port St. Joe High School, the
National Honor Society (NHS) has
been involved in many community
service projects.
The NHS held a car wash at
Discount Auto Parts. They also
sold Christmas Grams-a way for
high school and middle school
students to say "Merry Christ-
mas" to all their friends dunng
the season. The money raised
(S200) was for a fellow NHS mem-
ber.
Also during the Christmas
season members brought books to
give to underprivileged children in
Gulf County. Each member
brought one or more books to add
to a box that was given to the local
Sheriff Department to distribute
for Christmas. The NHS donated
over 30 books.
December is Port St. Joe's
Teacher Appreciation Month and
this year we said thank you by
making candy trains. The train
consisted of a smoke stack made
from Hershey Kisses, the car from
a roll of lifesavers, and the wheels
were peppermints. Attached was a
message that said. "Keep chug-
ging along!"
In March. we went to Beacon
Hill Beach and walked for two
hours picking up trash. Half the
I group walked toward Port St. Joe
-'and hall toward Mexico Beach. We
filled over 8 huge bags with trash.
In April we walked six miles to
raise money for Cystic Fibrosis.
Since it is directly three miles to
our sponsor's house from the
school. we walked to her house
and had a soda and a break, then
returned to the school.
Also in April we put our
"green thumbs" to use. Four
groups were made and then they
Sent to work cleaning the
flowerbeds, planung and watering
the plants and flowers outside.
cleaning the tri-pods, planting
and watering new flowers inside.
April 25th the high school
held a blood drive. Many people
donated their blood, while the
NHS donated their time by volun-


The Mexico Beach AARP
invited Mayor Kathy Kingsland to
its April meeting last week togive
the club an update on the city's
projects, finances, and other mat-.
ters. Mayor Kingsland reported to
the well-informed audience that
the city's fund balance had been,
turned from a negative $309;674
which she inherited upon being
elected in November 2000, to a
positive $608,334 as of September
2001, and it .is improving.
Additionally, the mayor pointed
out that of the 11 reportable con-
ditions stated in the 2000 audit.
only two remained and those have
already been corrected during this
fiscal year.
In other financial areas. the.
mayor and council have slightlyr
lowered the property tax rate in
the city for this year to 4.85 mils
and hope to lower it again for the ,
upcormng fiscal year. Elected offi-
cials are again receiving accurate
monthly financial statements to
help them better understand the
daily operations, and the city has
saved hundreds of thousands of
dollars in renovating;,' an older;
building for its City Hall instead of
issuing new debt of over $400,000
as originally considered for a new
facility.
Mayor Kingsland also dis-
cussed the present council's com-
mitment to improving the city's
general appearance and quality' of
life. Presently, being completing is
a city-wide street resurfacing pro-
ject which has significantly
improved the first-impression of
the city. Included are paving
improvements to the civic center
and business center area of the
town. Also, the city has been able
to receive state assistance with
roadside and ditch cleaning pro-
jects which it hopes to continue.
Last year the mayor initiated
the successful "Tom Sawyer's
Day" program where residents
work together at a designated
park area to paint, clean, or reno-
vate the area. Last year the pro-
gram greatly, improved the Canal
Park area with renovations to the
pavilion and dock. This year the
program completely renovated the
city's Municipal Park at the end of
22nd Street. with new metal roofs
for the buildings, paint and sub-
stantial landscaping. All costs are
donatedto the program by resi-
dehts and local businesses.
The city is presently inter-
viewing several firms to prepare a
vision plan. This plan will provide
. a vision of Mexico Beach's future
for the next five to ten years.
including improvements to the

REAL ESTATE REMAINS A STRONG INVESTMENT
/By Carol Bell
Opportunities;to make big, quick profits in residential real estate tend to come and go in
cycles. When a .local market is hot, families may find it possible to buy a house ai an attractive
price, fix it up, and watch its value rise.in just a few years. When the same local market is at the
low end of the appreciation cycle, reaping a profit on the family home can take a good deal more
time but the reward can be just as satisfying if pnce and location and carefully considered. Even in
uncertain economic hinmes like these, history shows that real estate is one of the soundest investmentss
a family can make
During the Great Depression ol the 1930s when the stock market plummeted as much as 89
percent, housing prices dropped only 39 percent According to most of the research on housing
trends, prices continually stay at the same level as, and most often appreciate faster than, the rate
of inflation Housing prices actually rose an average of 10 percent during the recessions of the mid.
1970's and early 1980s.
CENTURY 21 statisticians report that the rate of home appreciation since 1990 has been
around five percent nationally, with inflation hovering around four percent. Homeowners, obvious-
ly, are still staying ahead in the real estate game on average. And, with mortgage interest rates the
lowest they've been in two decades, real estate loday is a more attractive investmentt ihan it's been
in years.
First-time buyers are the big winners in this environment Drawing up a budget can help you
and your family decide on what you can afford. Once you've determined a price and picked your
desired community, shop around to find the besi house you can buy for your money Ths strategy
carn help you realize greater appreciation two or three years down the road
This is also a good time to purchase a second or vacation home A bargain cabin in the
woods today might bring an excellent return when housing prices move upward. Affordable sec-
and-home prices also allow you to purchase a vacation home that can serve as a stepping-slone to
a larger retreat in the future.
But appreciation isn't the only advantage to buying a home. The federal government thinks
home ownership is so important to the future of our country that it allows mortgage interest to
remain the last substantial tax shelter for families. Owners can also take deductions on their prop-
erty taxes. And, the profit on the sale of your home remains tax free as long as you buy a house
for a greater or equal price. .
So before you decide that this is not a good time to invest in residential property, re-examine
the financial benefits.of owning your own home and put them to work for you.

2001 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Beaches Water System


We're pleased to present to you this yver's Annual Waten Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the qual-
ity water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of
drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to 'continually improve the water treatment process and pro-
tect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water.
Our water source is purchased from the City of Port St. Joe for distribution to the Beaches Water System, Highland View Water
System, and the Whire City Water System, also referred to as the Gulf County Water Systems. The City of Port St. Joe's water
source is ground water from 4 wells. Two wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer and two wells from the Surficial Aquifer.
The Board of County Commissioners along with Mayor Frank Pate are pleased to report that our water quality meets all fed-
eral and sfare requirements.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Mr. Larry McArdle at (850) 229-
6395, or Lynn Srephens at (850) 229-9005. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If
you want to learn more, you can attend regularly scheduled City Commission Meetings on the first and third Tuesdays of the
month at 6.00 PM. in the Commission Meeting Room at City Hall, or the County commissionn Meetings held the second and
fourth Tuesday of rhe month at 6:00 P.M. in the County Commission Meeting Room in the Robert Al. Moore Administration
Building..
The City of Port St Joe and the Beaches Water System routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according
to Federal antd State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our
monitoring for rhe period of January 1st to December 31st 2001.
As authorized and approved by EPA, the State has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less often
than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year.
Some of our data [inorganic contaminants, lead and copper and/or radiological contaminants], though representative, is
More than one year old.
In the:able below you will find terms and abbreviations you might not be familiar with. To help you better understand these
terms we've provided the.t following definitions: -
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs,are
set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. .,.:. .
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there i..no
known or expected risk to health. AfCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Non-detector "ND" means'not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Non applicable. (n/a). Does not apply.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, trigers treatment or other requirements which
a water system must follow.
Parts per million (ppm) oe' Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to I million parts by weight of the
water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (,ug/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the
water .sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
As you can see by the following table, our system had no violations. We're proud that your drinking water meets or exceeds all
Federal and State requirements.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include.rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs,,and
wells As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in
some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include: ..' '
(A) Mifcrobial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agri-
cultural livestock operations, and wildlife. .. ,
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban storm water
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. ..
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urba4 stormwater runoff, and'
residential uses. .',
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, t which are by-products of industrial,
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems..
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activ-

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations winch limit the amount of certain contaminants
in water provided by public water systenis. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must.pro-
ride the sa me protection for public health. ,
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants.
' The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about, conta-
minants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water
Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. .. '
Some people may be more vulnerable to contami0antsin drinking water than the general population. Immuno-com-
promised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants,
people with.HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from
infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines
on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are
available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
The Gulf County Water Systems would like for you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treat-
ment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any ques-
tions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

NOTE: BEACHES WATER SYSTEM WILL NOT MAIL OUT NOTICES TO CUSTOMERS THIS YEAR,
BUT COPIES ARE AVAILABLE AT THE GULF COUNTY WATER DEPARTMENT.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants
in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must pro-
vide the same protection for public health. .
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants.
The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk.' More information about conta-
Sninants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling theiEnvironmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water
Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. ,' .
MCLs are set at very stringent levels. 'To understand the possible health effects described for many regulated contaminants, a
person would have-to drink 2'liters of water every day at the MCL level for a lifetime to have a one-in-a-million chance of
'having the described health effect. .
Spmeipeople may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised
persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with
HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These peo-
ple should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC'guidelines on appropriate means to
lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe, Drinking
Water Hotline (800-426-4791) .
We at Gulf County Water Systems work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask,that all our cus-
tomers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our children's future.

The City of Port St Joe and the Hglland View Water System routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water
according to Federal and Stare laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the
results of our monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st 2001.
As authori:ed and approved by EPA. the Stateb has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less often
than once per year because lte coficentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year.
Some of our da.Fa,[inorgianic cuMsisinants, lead and copper and.'or radiological contaminants], though representative, is
more than one year old. ..
In the table below you will fins terms and aibbrevi;iions you might not be familiar with. To help you better understand these
terms we',e provided dihe following defiititon i .
p Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are
S et as close to their MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
fMaximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there, is no
known or expected risk ro health. MCLGs allow for a martin of safety :
Non-detect or "ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance wa. not found by laboratory analysts.
Non applicable (n/a). Does not apply. -
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a iontaminant wh.ilh, if exceeded; triggers treatment or other requirements which
i a water system must follow ,
' Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyze to 1 million parts by weight of the
water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Microgranims per liter (g/l) one part by weight of analyte to I billion parts by weight of the
water sample. "
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
SAs you can see by the following table, our system had no violations. We're proud that your drinking water meets or exceeds
all Federal and State requirements. .
