St. Joseph's State Park Tops Listings


by Tim Croft
After scientifically analyzing a
range of symptoms, "'Dr. Beach"
has made his diagnosis: St.
Joseph Peninsula State Park
ranks as 'the. top beach in the
United States.
Not just in the contiguous 48
states, as the park was last year,
but all 50 states and thousands of,
miles of coastline.,
Dr. Stephen Leatherman, a
professor at Florida International
University in Miami; A.K.A. "Dr.

."It's all about the three S's;

man said., "You have the lily-white
sand. The water is s6 pristine and
clear. The sand is so light it prac-
tically squeaks.
"Put it all together and you
have a great beach.",
Leatherman has devised a
point system to determine his top
beaches, stringently assigning
values in 50 categorie. .hcluding

met in regular session Tuesday.
Commissioners put some
punch in penalties for'out-of-code
mobile homes and heard the call
to mobilize to cleanup the
Apalachicola River and its banks
7-11 a.m. Saturday.
The commission approved the
first reading of a new ordinance
for mobile homes within city lim-
its, an update that is meant to
address a nagging problem of
decaying mobile homes.
Beyond codifying .mobile
home requirements, the high-
lights of the new ordinance
include a provisions that owners of
mobile homes five years and older
must have their homes inspected
and submit a site plan to city
staff. 3


Owners of mobile homes less
than five years old must provide
the city with pictures of their
home showing any damage.
Violations of the ordinance
ill result in a $500 fine to. the
owner and, at the request of com-
missioners, anr additional $500
; fine to the individual or company
that hauled the trailer inside city
limits.
Further, if the violation is not
corrected within five days, the
owner is subject to additional
fines of $100 per day thereafter.
Finally, inspections, review.
and enforcement is left in the
hands of city staff: violations .do
not have to come before the com-
mission for consideration.
At the urging of commission-
ers, city staff will, upon the sec-
ond reading of the ordinance,
send a certified letter to area
mobile home dealers informing
them of the requirements and
penalties.
As for Saturday, city manager
Don Minchew urged a strong
turnout for the annual cleanup of
the Apalachicola River.
The event is sponsored by
Gulf County Search and Rescue,
Wewahitchka Search and Rescue
and the Northwest, Florida Water
Management District. '
Last year, Minchew said

Road Bid and At-Large


Voting Draw Attention


Gulf County commissioners
acceptance of the best bid to
resurface County Road 3S6 and'
an update on at-large voting liti-
gation were the major issues
faced by the board 'during
Tuesday evening's meeting.
Commissioners agreed to a
recommendation from. Chief
Administrator Don Butler to
accept the bid of C. W. Roberts
Contracting Company to resur-
face CR 386, the Overstreet Road.
The county placed the project out
for bids after receiving state road
paving grant funds to do the
work.
Butler told the board three
bids 'were received:. Granger
Asphalt Paving Inc. came in with
the low bid of $1,271,500, C. W.
Roberts was second at
$1,295,704, and Anderson
Columbia was the high bidder at
$1,505,859.-
Butler told the board that'
after reviewing the bids his rec-
ommendation was what he con-
sidered to be the best bid of C. W.
Roberts. The board voted 4-1,
with commissioner Nathan
Peters, Jr. objecting, to accept
Butler's recommendation.
Roger 'Granger, of Granger
Asphalt, was present at the meet-
ing and asked the board, "Should
other contractors just quit bid-
ding in Gulf County?"
This .sparked a discussion


into the reasoning behind Butler's
recommendation. That data
included research that pointed to
several problems and issues.
Most specifically the fact that
Granger's company is not, cur-
rently on the. paving list in
Panama City because of past per-
formance problems.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
reminded the board of paving
issues several years ago when the
board had problems with a paving
contractor. He-expressed that the
county was certain of the work
performance of C. W. Roberts and
could see no reason to risk a
lesser job for a difference of just
$24,000 on a bid of this magni-
tude.
Board attorney, Tim
McFarland, paraphrased the
boards reasoning to Granger,
"Your reputation in Panama City
precedes you."
At-Large Voting
County Attorney Tim
McFarland advised the board that
an opinion'report was ready. to be
given by attorneys hired by the
board to evaluate a possible
return to at-large voting.
McFarland said the closed
door session would take place via
teleconference. At that time the
board would be advised as to the
viability of .continuing litigation
(See COUNTY on Page 3A)


Such statements come with,'
boulders oF salt, however, particu-
larly for Gulf District schools.
SGiven the ,2.5 percent cut in
education spending for the. cur-
rent fiscal year. mandated by the
Legislature last fall' after 9/11,,
the increase for next year is sliced
'to 3.5 percent.
Further, Gulf County's share
of new money lags behind the
state average regardless of how
the numbers are crunched.
The,, district's per-pupil
spending will, rise $293.51, o .
5.91 percent -just below the state
average to $5,259.91.
In terms of total budget dol-
lars, the district will see just over
$500,000 in new money, for a
total budget of $11 million and
change. ,
That is an increase of 4.87
percent, well below the state aver-
age increase of 9.14 percent..
A primary culprit is the exo-'
dus of students from the district
in recent years, particularly since
the closing of the paper mill.
Gulf County had 2,121 full-
time equivalent .students during
the current school year.
According to district and state
legislative projections, that num-
ber drops to 2,100 for 2002-2003.
However, Kelley said updated
estimates by district staff indicate
that number is currently hovering
at 2,078.
By comparison, in 1997 there
were 2,386 full-time equivalent
students in the district. The num-
ber has steadily dwindled each
year since.
And with each student lost,
-district coffers lose much-needed
dollars.
If in fact the district loses 50
students from the just-completed
year to next, that equates to
roughly $250,000 in lost revenue.
"We are still losing kids," Kel-
ley said. "That's a lot money for
our district. When you lose kids
it's just devastating."
Another strain on the dis-
trict's budget, as Blanton recently
noted, is that. the fixed costs of
operating schools are rising faster
than increases in state funding
for education.

Erasing My Past


Freedom Isn't



Really Free Is It?

Sometimes we get so caught up in the activities going
on all around us that we seem to forget the true mean-
ing of the event that helped give us the opportunity to
have a holiday.
I'm not chastising anyone for having a good time over
this past Memorial Day weekend, but rather just want
to reminisce for a few paragraphs about my own mind-
set.
Even with the most recent events of 9/11, and the
daily barrage of news reports updating us on the war
against terrorism, .I still find it easy to become a little
complacent about that price paid by so many. I can take
for granted that so many have died so that I can have
the privilege of taking so much for granted.
I was reminded of that tendency this weekend when
I realized I had driven all the way down Reid Avenue and
parked at the entrance to The Star and not noticed that
the entire street, both sides, was flanked with American
flags.
Then I drove by Frank Pate Park. where banners
were flying and folks were gathered. One of the
reminders displayed was the "Show Your Colors" cam-
paign being put on by the local Lions Club..... I remem-
ber that-shoot, I wrote about it in an editorial a few
weeks ago.
It was only after passing by the park that I noticed
the flags were .flying on Reid.
Sunday morning. Brother John asked those who had
lost loved ones or friends while fighting in the service to
stand. One more time I found myself asking questions in
my mind-who died during the war in their families??
-Or-I wondered if it was a friend or family??? They've
never mentioned it to me as long as I've known them.....
Seemed like every channel on TV I turned to over the
weekend, there was a mention about what we're remem-
bering this weekend.
Monday morning I still almost forgot there was a
Veterans Program at 11:00. Guess I need to run down
and shoot a few pictures, I thought.
"Today we honor a very special group of veterans,
those who gave their lives in service." were the opening
remarks. of VFW Post Commander Rick Armstrong.
Wanda Walker's tape broke before she sang the
National Anthem. It was OK, though. everyone helped
,and it sounded pretty good even without music.
Col. Ron Groleau reminded us that over 1 million
service men and women have lost their lives while pro-
tecting our freedoms. He suggested we honor them by
flying our flags, teaching our children and grandchil-
dren that "freedom isn't free" and participating in our
/democracy. ,
I saw several tears wiped from eyes at points and
times. throughout the ceremony. Guess they' were
remembering friends and loved ones who paid that
price. Come to think of it. most of the people at the cer-
emony seemed to have a first-hand understanding of
exactly how much it costs to be free.
I trust that most of you are less forgetful than I and
remembered to honor those most memorable heroes.

I ran past the old swimming
pool. I had spent my growing up
.summers there. Roe Alexander put
.me to work picking up paper and

Well, actually, I ran by where
the pool used to be! They had torn
the place down back in the late
sixties. There was a house or two


out by the road. Weeds had grown
over the back portion of that big lot
where the giant twin pools used to
sit.
It was as itf t was never really

I thought of .Jackie Burns.
Bobby King and the other life-

worked there as well,....
It was like part of my history

even existed..... .
More than a little disturbed, I
swung down West Cherry Street,
past the house of Robert Holmes
Brewer-someone had cut down
the two big trees that stood I ke
giant beacons in his front yard!
Bobby-and I had spent hours play-
ing in. and under, those trees. We
built tree houses and lived "like

Howd She 'Stale' The Bread for That Pudding?


THISIIS IS ONE OF the best
seasons of the. year-for ANY-
THING! -
. Graduating, fishing, the' sea-
son for good thingsto. eat, .or tak-
ing a vacation.
For .me and my sedentary
lifestyle, it is the season for good
things to eat. -The gardens are
producing tomatoes. potatoes.
' squash and a panoply Of good
things to eat.
The food which brought this
blurb on, however, had nothing
to do with things grown in a gar-
den.
ForF the past few days, J have
been thinking about bread pud-
dinig. You know. that succulent
sweet your mother used to make
out of the remainder of the loaf of
bread when it went stale or sort
of -dried out. Bread doesn't dry
out, or go stale, these days.' How
does. one manage to get the stale
bread to make bread pudding?

MY MOTHER USED to turn


the bread which went stale. or
dried out, into bread pudding,
,when I was a child.
She turned what was left .in a
loaf-if anything happened to be
left, with five boys to feed--into
something useful.
After all, that loaf-of bread
cdsifa dime! Dimes didn't become
available often enough to .waste
,them by throwing away a piece.of
a loaf of bread just because it
was s6rt of dried out.
So she turned it into some-
thing Usefulf
She, usually made just plain
old bread pudding.
Back in the 50s and 60s, we


had bread pudding right often at
the Rotary Club luncheon; bn
Thursday. We ate and met-'in
the Motel St. Joe upstairs dining
room .and the restaurant was
operated by Mrs. Pauline
Moluchette.
Pauline was known .for her
pfes she made daily. For hde
Rotary luncheon, she would-.reg-
ularly fix bread pudding.
One of our members, Jimmy n
Greer, would salivate over that
bread pudding.
. He' was a bread pudding
expert". He had different names
for bread pudding, depending on.
what it was "dressed up" with. If,


it was plain, it was, bread pud-.,
ding. If it had fruit added-such
as raisins or pineapple-it was
queen's pudding' Pauline usually
fixed. queen's pudding.

I WAS REMINDED of
- Paulihe's ,queen's pudding the
other day, when my daughter-in-
law, Sue, made up a mess 'of
bread pudding and sent a batch
over to. our house by our son,
Ray. .
It .was still warm!
She had made some queen's
pudding! She. put pineapple in
some plain, old fashioned bread
puddfngl
And,, was it good!
It not only reminded me of
Pauline's pudding, but it also
reminded of .my mother's pud-.
ding she used to rhake.
Bread doesn't go stale, any-
more. We can buy a loaf and it
will last more than a week. There
are no ingredients to make that
delicious bread pudding with. I


don't know- where Sue, got her
stale bread, but I'm glad she
managed

I WONDER WHAT happens
to stale cornbread?
Come to think of it, I've never
seen any stale cornbread. It usu-
:ally gets eaten, if not in one meal,
at our house. then it is finished
up in a glass of milk, as a bed-
time snack!
That's ambrosia, too!
Take a glass full of crumbled-
up cornbread, -fill it with milk
and eat away. That's how you
handle left over cornbread-if
any happens to, be left over.
I suppose our grandmothers
had some recipes to use up stale
cornbread-if it became stale-
but,, it would be hard to improve
on the use I would put it to.
Cornbread isn't like light
brad: a sort of vehicle to hold a
sandwich together, or make a
piece of toast out of. Cornbread
is -a dish all to itself It stands, or


is eaten,- as a food, only made
better with a generous pat of but-
ter added to the top.

BUT, I WAS SINGING the
praises of bread pudding.
Some folks made do with a
regular portion of rice pudding. I
guess that 'was alright, if it was
the best you could do. But, I
remember the frequency and the
fragrance of hot bread pudding,
generously laced with cinnamon.
Momma made rice pudding,
too;, and fried, cold, grits and
mush. There is no better way to
eat left-over grits than to slice,
batter and fry them.
You've never eaten any fried
grits? We called it fried mush,
back in Oklahoma, but mush is
ground corn, just like grits. '
Many of the things one. has
eaten as a child and recalled witl
salivary glands. pumping, don't
taste quite as good as it was
, remembered; but bread pudding
definitely does!

#1 Beach From Pg. 1


"This is a real getaway
beach."
S- Leatherman a.so cited the
park's location on a peninsula.
affording visitors "great sunrises
and great sunsets."
The fishing, whether scaveng-
ing for scallops and other shell-
fish or tossing a line for saltwater
fish, is another magnet.
"The thing that really makes
it is its huge curving arc of barri-
;er beach," Leatherman said. "The
beautiful wide sandy beach
backed by huge sand dunes, that
really sets it apart."
As in the case of past winners
of the Leatherman's tag of Ameri-
ca's No. 1 beach, St. Joseph
Peninsula State Park goes into
something akin to a beaches Hall
of Fame.
It is excluded from future
competition for a spot on Leather-
man's list, but it is permanently
enshrined in the list of past win-
ners.
"(The selection) is a shot in
the arm we really didn't need,"
.said Paula Ramsey Pickett of the
Gulf County Tourist Development
g Council. "Our numbers are so
staggering right now,"- noting that
bed tax revenues have far exceed-
ed projections.

escape: I .,recalled the endless
hours of match box football in the
library. I wondered whatever hap-
pened to Becky Broome. She was
my, first "high school crush". I was
thinking about the time Rollin
Trull drove his big Harley down
the hall when. I rounded the cor-
ner-
No. It can't be! It was gone
too!
I 1 mean the whole thing! There
was nothing there but a big park-
inhg lot ,and a little portion of the
3old s-hop building! My past'seemed
-tb:.be shrinking rightkbefore my
eyes. I wandered aimlessly back
and forth across the -asphalt


Ramsey Pickett pointed out
that St. Joseph Peninsula State
Park is a destination easily
reached by car which, by virtue of'
what lodging options are avail-
able, makes it an outstanding
family destination.
"People can come here if they
are going to stay a week." Ramsey
Pickett said. "That makes it very
family-oriented. Not a lot of kids
are going to rent a beach house
for a week.
"And those families are
enhancing the landscape not
defacing it."
For Florida, which was hit
hard by a drop in tourism in the
wake of 9/11, Dr. Beach's top 10
list is a ray of sunshine.
Four Florida beaches are on
the list, with Fort DeSoto Park at
No. 4: Caladesi Island State Park
at No. 6: and ninth-ranked Cape
Florida State joining St. Joseph
Peninsula State Park on Leather-
man's list.
"This is a great tool to market
'Florida,"-said Leon Corbett III of
Visit Florida, a public/private
partnership marketing Florida.
"Touting the list is a great
thing for the state market, partic-
ularly after September 11th."
The rest of the beaches on

searching for Rod Serling.
.How are you going to tell them
about Squeaky Ridinger's flight it
you can't show'em just exactly
how fligh that fire escape was!
I stumbled home.
My whole past had been wiped
out. I may not have ever been!
"Mom, can we ride out to the
house I was born in?"
"Son, they tore, that, old place
down long ago,"
"How about the Park
Theatre?"
"They haven't shown movies in
there for years."
I was tempted to ask about Pat
Houston's old store and the Starr
Lumber Company but the pattern
. here wasn't very comforting.
I wondered if age had anything
to do with my vanishing past.' I
wondered if other folks had
encountered this phenomena of,
what ought'a be wasn't! TI won-
dered if we lost a little of ourselves
every time we lose a marker from
"our -estervears. ,
'! I hope someone is keeping a
record.
Respectfully,

Leatherman's list include four in
Hawaii, including No. 2 Hanalei
Beach, along with a North Caroli-
na beach and East Hampton
Beach in New York.
The latter, Leatherman said,
offers an illustrative contrast to
further explain why St. Joe Penin-
sula State park catapulted to the
top of his list.


"The gulf waters stay relative-
ly warm," Dr. Beach said. "The
temperature right now is about 85
degrees. It's beach season all year

For many, summertime means that
life slows down a bit., There's more
time to enjoy .some of the "finer"
thinei in life, like swimming, an after-
noon picnic, a long walk, or spending
the day playing (or watching) baseball.
If you and your family just can't get
enough baseball by: watching or play-
ing the sport, you'll want to mix up a
batch of these All-Americjn Baseball
Cookies.
You're sure to make ,a "hit" when',
you serve these, decorated roll-out
cookies. at your next summer gather-
ing: It takes no time at all to mix up the
lightly lmo'[or-ll,.i'ored cookie dough,

To make the most tender and crisp
cookies,'it's important to se the right
'flour. Different types of flour h'. e dif-
ferent characteristics, depending upon
the type of wheat from which, they
were milled. Experienced bakers are
most concerned with ,the amount of
gluten-forming protein 'in the flour.
Gluten is an elastic NiLb',tancIe that
develops when the piolein in the
wheat blends with ILquid. Trende ioll-
out c,ooie require the use of a low-
protein, I'-.'. -zluten floiu-ideally one
with 8 to 10'grams of protein per cup.,
Since you will be re-rolling the cookie
dough, the ute of higher -protein flours
will make the cookies tough instead of'
tender If the paick.age label indicates
that the tlOiT comes from pure soft

Letters to the

Jet Skis and St. Joseph
Peninsula State Park
Dear Mr. Ramsey,
Recently, as a local resident, I
visited St. Joseph Peninsula State
Park. The park.in my view is one
of Gulf County's greatest trea-
'sures. If it wasn't a state park, it-
:probably would have been gob-
bled up. for private development
long before now. Fortunately we
have the" opportunity to protect
and provide for the public's use a
little piece of the unspoiled beauty
of thebay and a beach of interna-
tional renown. Treasures thrown
away, seldom re-appear. ...
St. .Joseph's Ba1 is unique in
its beauty. 'recovery, simplicity
and overall rarity. It is also
unique in that it provides aquatic
activities for a number of non-
motorized aquatic pedestrians
such as wadefrs, net casters, fly
fisherpersons, swimmers, and
people learning how to swim. We
have no public swimming pools in
Gulf County to teach swimming.
The motorized boat commu-
nity is monitored'and .seems to
respect its boundaries. I can't 'say
the Jet Ski community maintains,
the same mentality.
Jet'skis are allowed to launch
'from the state park and, accord-
ing to state park personnel, they
are not allowed to go beyond idle
'speed within the Eagle Harbor
area. However, I observed that a ,
number of jet skis in the harbor
were, recklessly cnsscrossing the
harbor disrupting the peace and
natural tranquility of the harbor.
-. ,:.. Because Gulf County has no
public swimming pools, where,
r' swimmers can sVim 'ithfiout fear
Sofbein' h'it, one of the last reluges'
'for shallow water, 'non-beach-
'wave. swimming or wading is now'
compromised. il love to go to the
harbor, take .Iny kickboard and
'just swim, around looking at the
bottom and watching people enjoy
the bay. You see parents with
young children in the shallows
teaching their children how to,
swim. Now you have to keep: a
sharp eye to make sure a jet ski
isn't careening towards you.. In a
pnstine bay soon to be named on
national television' as the best,
most naturally beautiful beach in
the' country, this seems a bit
absurd.. -

"We have expanded our range and
our resources, so the time is right
to enlist a full-time director."
In her capacity as director,
Selton will oversee NFIF's efforts
to improve the civic infrastructure
of Bay, Franklin, Gulf and Walton
counties. The St. Joe Company
established the NFIF in 1999 to
Invest in the ,ongoing improve-


The park personnel seemed
sympathetic to my concerns and
indicated that rules are in place
and where I should write my con-
cerns.. However, they do not have
the staff 'to babysit the harbor to
see that the Jet Skis obey those
rules.
The jet skiers I observed
seemed more at home closer to
the shore so their friends could
see theirantics. Why can't they be
required to stay completely
beyond the north and south
points that define the harbor?
Just because they don't have an
interest in tranquil waters, why
do we have to lose them? .;
I would suggest that when jet
skis are !brought into the park,
drivers should be required to read.
and sign a statement that they
.will not crisscross the harbor..
They should be required to go
beyond the points and stay ih the
bay itself. Let them stay with the
fully motorized aqujitic commu-
nity where perhaps they can prop-,
erly learn the rules of the sea..
The aquatic pedestrian com-
munity shouldn't have to contend .
with therhi Banning them from
the park would be best of all.
Thank you.

Small Town Comforts


by Tim Croft
It, is a cliche to speak of the
warm embrace and comfort of a
small town'.
SHowever, as a city boy, a Yan-
kee one at that, this concept was
strictly an abstract, something
you read about or saw on reruns
ofThe.Andy Gri[fith Show.
ULintil this, past holiday week-
end.
n Not that it felt like much of a
. holiday, what with moving from
Panama City to Port St. Joe and
the untimely death of a member of
my wife's family
In any case. Saturday was
moving day, which would not
have been .possible without nmy
wife's Wewahitchka relatives.,
With heavy hearts, they lights
ened our load with a caravan of
trucks and trailers and plenty of
muscle.
The lifting and the sweat. I
suppose. numbed the pain for a
short time
However. driving the rental
truck we needed to make the
move in one trip was left to the


reporter here, a troubling predic-
tor of the weekend to come.
As I pulled in front of the
house in the Ward Ridge area, I
parked the truck in soil that was
as sandy as a coastal beach.
The truck'sank like the Titan-
ic. The more I tried to, free the
dadgum thing the deeper it sub-
merged. ,
I 'soon had the truck up to its
axle in sand and Was on the verge
of calling for a wrecker.'

Gulf County
Chamber
Extends Thanks
It's not been an easy year ...
for America ... or for most states,
counties and municipalities. But
for all the horror of last
September and uncertainty that
first engulfed us, the evidence
abounds that we are a much
stronger, more united people than
our adversaries thought, possible.
Our system of government
and the freedoms we cherish have
come clearly, into focus. Our
.resolve has been steeled, and
through it all our free enterprise
system has proven to be a cornier- -
stone of democracy.
Gulf County is "on the map"!
We are' growing in a smart, posi-
tive way.
Visitors want to come here for'
vacation.
Businesses want to locate
here.
SWe are so fortunate to have,
along v.ith a growing Chamber of
Commerce, a committed Econo-
mic 'Development Council' and
vibrant Tourist Development
Council. The directors of both
EDC and TDC and. their board
members are planning, working

family at the Oak Grove Assembly
of God.
We have released Jerry into.
the loving-arms of The Lord.
May God abundantly bless,
each.of you.

and promoting-with the Chamber
board of directors-what is best for
Gulf County and how our growth
will be beneficial to all.
Our city and county officials
are ever striving to make the right
decisions for all citizens in our
communities. We are, fortunate
and blessed to live in one of the
most beautiful places on earth
with the best chamber members!
Sandra B. Chafin of the Gulf

notes, "Our Chamber of
Commerce is a direct reflection of
the vision, commitment and val-
ues of our collective membership.
Our 250 members care deeply
about Gulf County, Florida and
America. We are proud champi-
ons for free enterprise."
June 2-8 is National Chamber
of Commerce Week And chambers,
throughout Flonda are taking this
time to thank their member busi-

ment in both free enterprise and
our quality of life.


Pill Popping-New

National Pastime
It is hard to believe that according to recent reports, about'
half the public swallows some type of pill every 24 hours. This corb-
pares to the one in three who said they had read a magazine or one
in 20 who participated in a.active sport.
There is much danger in indiscriminate, taking of meditation
and we as pharmacists are very much aware of the problems. We cau-
tion and urge people to consult their family physician when they are
ill. Self-medication in other than very simple circumstance can cause
more harm than.good.

tutes 6 percent-or more of the dis- be
trict's total- budget, the state
would step in to make up the
shortfall in local effort funding.
The law, sponsored by the
late Sen. Pat Thomas, was written
specifically with Gulf District
Schools and the paper, mill land
assessment dispute in mind.
Kelley indicated, though, that
the disputed assessment on the
land, which must be certified by
the county appraiser by July 1,
appears likely to fall below the 6
percent threshold this year,
meaning no assistance from the
state and further strain on ,an
already taut budget.
For the current fiscal year,
the disputed assessment amount-
ed to 6.1 percent of the district's
budget. The state anted up the
shortfall in local funding or
roughly $500,000, district staff
said.
One direct result ofthis over-
all stark financial picture will be
staff cuts, which Kelley said are
inevitable.
It is a bill that, given the past
several years, is probably *over- ,
due, Kelley said.
The district, he continued,
has done all it could "to keep .peo-
Sple working" the past few years.
But personnel cuts now
appear 'a foregone conclusion and
the ir.st step in that direction,
-! which the School Board is likely, -
totake up Tuesday.'.T a distnct-
wide -teacher/student ratio for-
S mula for staffing.
Kelley ,has urged the board to
adopt such a staffing formula in
recent years and the board seems.
poised :to implement one for the
2002-2003 school year.
"We are going to have a ratio
we can afford,'" Kelley said. "Some
people think, you shouldn't run
schools like a business, .but, in
some ways, we have' to run it like
a business."
The teacher/student ratio
proposed by Kelley for 'board
approval is:
One teacher for every 20 stu-
"dents for grades K-3; 1:24 for
grades 4-8; 1:20 for grades 9-12;
1:15 for ESE classes; 1:20 for
English as a' Second Language
classes;, 1:8 for ESE Level 4; and
1:5 for ESE Level 5 classes.
Special education classes at-
levels four and five are for the
most severely disabled children.
SPECIAL MEETING
'During a special meeting last
week, the School Board formally
approved the hiring of Terry Lin-
ton as principal of Wewahitchka
High School and Pam Lister for
the same position at' Wewahitchka
Middle School.
.: The board also formally
approved the hiring of Kenneth
S Cohen as head football coach and
athletic director at Wewahitchka
S Elementary.
Additionally, the board
"received written notification from
Wewahitchka Elementary School
principal Clayton Wooten'that he
.. will retire effective June 30, 2003.
Wooten has been with the dis-
trict more than" 20 years.

Big Birds
The long arm of the law didn't intimidate these emus. Deputy Greg Myrick keeps a tree
between him and the big birds while waiting for their owner to arrive. The emus were spot-

know if there was anything more
he could do to help.
He: didn't have a tranquilizer,,
gun handy, however, so,, at least
for the moment, he was on' his
way.
Mr. Haddock, recognizing the,
signs of a man either dimwitted or
out of his depths, :offered to leave
the .chain in his front' yard if
another run with the rental was
needed.
The next day, it was time to'

The outreach from the con-,,
gregation at New Harvest Fellow-

'poignant and stunning.
More than a dozen 'folks
cooked food for the extended,fam-'
ily: '
The church musicians and.
pastor, after regular Sunday ser-
vices, graciously, returned to the
church to render a moving funer-
al service.
One member, Ms. Parker,


even provided her van for the pro-
cession to the gravesite to several
family members without air con-
ditioned vehicles.
Mr. Comforter, was quietly
sensitive to a bereaVed amrilv's
needs and spearheaded, a touch-
ingly dignified ceremony at the.
church and grave.
The ,hext day, Memorial Day,
came more boxes and lifting, but
a couple of small problems arose
with our new abode.
Nothing we couldn't have
dealt with until Tuesday, but, Mr.
Roberson, aware, of the emotional
roller coaster my wife was riding,
made sure the problems were
, addressed as, best and as quickly
as he could.
It rrught have been a national
holiday, but. at Mr. Roberson's
request, Albert was generous with
his help and Mr. Willard came out
and worked on a major appliance,
despite a flat tire on his work van.

Drug Plan
Senator Bob Graham (D-
Florida) announced last week a
new plan to provide affordable
prescription drug coverage to
seniors.
Graham's bill is co-sponsored
by Sen. Zell Miller, D-Georgia.
The proposal, which provides
universal prescription drug cover-
age for all Medicare recipients
includes a $25 per month premi-
um; an immediate benefit with'no
- deductible; the government will
pay 50 percent of the cost of a'

As a reporter, I have inter-
viewed and written about U.S.

I've covered Major League
baseball, NASCAR and national
championship football games.
But I have never encountered
as much personal grace and class
as I did this past weekend.
There are things you lose
moving to a small town, but they
are generally ephemeral. artifacts
of a consumer culture.
And, with humans co-exist-
ing, there is sure to be some ugli-,
ness and less-than-savory'
aspects to life in- a small town, as
with any community.
To bathe in the kind of
human warmth and camaraderie
encountered this past weekend;
though, is not only' redemptive,
but irreplaceable.

A filling is the restoration, of,
part of a tooth that has been lost
to decay. The tooth must be
restored after the decay has been
removed, rather than just leaving
it as-is for several reasons.
First, removal of decay
leaves a hole in the tooth where
new decay could readily establish
itself-and this time start much
closer to the nerve.
Second, the tooth must be
restored so that. it' can function

properly and in unison with the
other teeth. Otherwise, other
areas of the mouth have to
absorb the workload of the unre-
stored tooth and the extra stress
could lead to more dental prob-.
lems.
The dentist's choice for the
filling material depends on the'
tooth's location (front or back)
'and the amount of tooth that
needs to be restored. POrcelain
is sometimes preferred for restor-
ing decayed back. teeth.

for smaller fillings in back teeth.

Following the Memorial Day
service, Commander. Armstrong
held a short ceremony in front of

Rick read a short history about
the Vietnam War and then read
the names of all the Gulf County
military who, lost their lives in
Vietnam, one being John C.
Gainous, in whose honor the local',
VFW is named; another was.
Clifford Sims, who. received the
Medal of Honor. All Vietnam veter-
ans in attendance planted a flow-
ering dogwood tree and post
members Ron Groleau and Harry

honor of all men and women who
served in Vietnam". Wanda Walker,'
and Chaplain Kennedy partic-
ipated in the ceremony also.

II veterans, and on Veterans Day
they planted a flower bed for the
'Korean veterans. Please drive by
the Post Home and look at. the
nice display of memorials.


Steve Whealton, 58, son of
Doris Whealton of Port St. Joe,
will have 43 of his art works
shown in an exhibition entitled
"Algorithmic Visual Art" at The
New York Hall of Science in
Queens, NY. It will open on June
8, and will stay up through
September 1 (Labor Day).
"Algorithmic" refers to the
algorithms, or mathematical
recipes, that were used in creat-
-ing the images.
Whealtonwas born in Port St.
Joe and graduated from Port StL
Joe High School. He has been liv-
ing in Washington,' DC since
1963.
His art works are ,all produced
with the help of a computer;
Abouthalf of the images feature
objects that were once alive, such*
as snake skins, sea shells, and
tree bark. Others are computer-
ized rearrArlnemeri- or recolo'r-
ings ol' his .w.n photographic
images or paintings. The other
half of the images featured are
purely mathematical. These
designs focus on symmetry, and
,on the ntrirpl ay of colors and of
visual textures.

A reception followed in the library.
Congratulations to our stu-
dents! They turned in a grand
total of $1,201.49 in mission
money this year, distributed
among six missionaries and
Samaritan's Purse. Way to go,
students! This project has focused
not only on giving financial sup-
port, but also prayer support as
the students have prayed daily for
the missionaries being supported.
They were able to hear from one,
Mrs. Liz Meiner, who came to
school especially tho thank and
encourage the students. We have
heard from several by mail. One of,
them. Chris Robershaw, who has


witnessed changed lives in his
ministry, said of the prayer sup-
port, "I encourage all you you to
keep. it up. We will never know all
the effect our prayers had on peo-
ple till we get to heaven, but know
that your prayers have refreshed
me." The mission project this year
has been fun and a great way to
help fulfill our Lord's commission
to us to go and share the Gospel.

The FCS cookbooks are here.
You may purchase them at the
school office for $10 each. When
you get yours, don't forget your
friends, family and neighbors.
They make wonderful gifts.

Determining your home's fair market value is one of the most important decisions you'll make during
the home-selling/buying process. Your sales associate can help you set a fair price based on local market
conditions. For instance, :-.e r h;e 11 pr :..;de :al-e p;.:e. and other statistics of homes similar to yours that
have recently been sold PrO:Fp.c,..e btu/r. -.1! -.e :ompdring your home to others on the market..
Therefore, setting a comprehensive price can determine if your property will or will not sell. For the first
offer made, it's rare-that the prospective buyer matches'the asking price.. IF the offer is reasonably close to
the asking price, carefully consider.the offer before you consider turning it down. .
Curiously, it's the first offer that can often be the best offer. If the first offer is unacceptable to you, it
may be in your best interest to have your sales associate respond with a counter offer. Whenever consid-
ering an offer, ask yourself if you would purchase the property for the amount being offered. Always be
willing to negotiate e:prec;all, if i-e prospective buyer-is pre-qualified for a mortgage. Once you decide
what terms are o.c:ieprble IT, ro'u sales associate negotiate with the prospective buyer to ivork out the
best agreement for c'.% N c- 11 r.Ed To be patient while the buyer arranges financing and as the real estate
company compiles.and prepares pertinent data. Corefulplanning and sound advice from a real estate pro-
fessional can make selling your home a very satisfying experience.
