Appraisal

by Tim Croft.
In a ruling handed down at
press time Wednesday,* Circuit
Court Judge Glenni L. Hess
upheld County Property Apprais-
er Kesley Colbert's 2000 assess-
merint on the personal property
value of the Port St. Joe paper
mill.
The ruling, as it stands, could
have a huge impact on county
and school district coffers.
The ruling came in a case in
which Storie Container Corp. con-,
tested Colbert's assessment plac-
'ng the value of the mill's equip-
ment at roughly $111 million.
Stone contended that the
value of the personal property at
the mill site was closer to 9 mril

.In his ruling, Hess concluded
t that Colbert, faced with a "daunt-
ing task", used the best informa-
tion available on April 1, .2000,
the due date for filing personal
property returns, including infor-

Scal lops

by Tim Croft
After two lean years,
researchers are cautiously opti-
niistic that a. boiintiful scallop
harvest is in the offing this year'in
St. Joseph's Bay.
Crews from the Florida
Marine Research Institute are
around the state surveying bays
and estuaries 'along the Gulf of
Mexico from the mduth of the
Suwannee River to the Alabama
line for the mollusk that thrives in
sea grass beds.
And while those surveys are
final predictors of what kind of
S season it shoiaild be fotr scallops,.
researchers see the potential for a
summer of plenty here in St.
'Joseph's Bay.
S"We won't know for sure until
the next two weeks," said Bill
Arnold of the, Florida Marine
SResearch Institute. "But we are
very optimistic and cautiously
confident (about St. Joseph's
Bay)."
Scallop season begins July 1
and runs through Sept. 10.

Pioneer resident J.imy McNeill piloted a B-17 Flying Fortress during World War II.


Some might argue it was evi-
dence of generations fat and con-
tentedly happy on the freedom
secured nearly six decades ago on
the beaches of Normandy, France.
Others could contend that
June 6, 1944, D-Day, had been
replaced in the country's con-
science, particularly among
young people, by another date,
9/11.
Jimmy McNeill would likely
side with the latter.
Whatever softness freedom
wrought on ensuing generations
hardened that September day last
year into patriotic resolve.
"9/11 showed we can come
out and together when we need
to," McNeill said.
As it did some 50 years ago.
McNeill, 78, was one of seven
graduates of Port St. Joe High
School who responded when their
country was fighting a world war


Costin Jr. entered the military
along with McNeill during World
War II.
All would become flyers, Navy
:or Army Air Corps, and three,
Rohan, Soderberg and Taunton,
would not come home.
"There was a sense of duty
then, yes," McNeill said. "I wanted
to do more. When you are young
you are anxious to do a lot more."
Planes captivated McNeill,
who remembered the time his
momma yanked him .from the
door of a .Ford tri-motor plane
when he was five or six years old.
When he later got his wings in
the military, his mother admon-
ished him to "Fly real low and real
slow."
McNeill had to point out that
in wartime such aerobatics might
get him killed.
In any case, McNeill said, "I
was always interested in air-


It was two years after Pearl'
Harbor and McNeill became part
of a squadron that was somewhat
"experimental."
These airmen, which. included
members of the football teams at
Alabama and Clemnson, received
more training and education.
They were sharply lihoned
rather than rushed into battle, .as
many were early in the European
theater.
And McNeill became a pilot of'
a B-17, the massive four-engine
Flying Fortresses which were one
of the critical weapons that won
the 'war.
"They were just big," McNeill
said. "To me it was the easiest fly-
ing four-engine plane. It was a
really fine airplane."
He was almost flying B-29s..
McNeill went to South Dakota to
train in the plane, but hated
them.


He wrote a letter home to his
mother pining .of his distaste' for
the B-29'and w%'hat happened next'.
Should only happen to a small-
town boy.
It happened that Wewahitch-
ka native Jimmy Spencer was a
one-star general at the time.
,He had dated McNeill's moth-
er in high school and was visiting
Wewahitchka. and it so happened
McNel!'s mother, the day after
McNeill's letter arrived home.


Not long thereafter, : 1st Lt.
_-McNeill was :summoned to a
lunch with General Spencer.
And to the astonishment of
the young officer, Spencer
expounded on McNeill's hatred of:
the B-29 and desire to transfer to
the Air Transport.

order..

Granger Files Suit/


Mill Demolition Top


Commission Agenda


As Gulf County
'Commissioners worked through
their agenda Tuesday evening'
County Attorney Tim McFarland
,brought news that most of the
board had probably anticipated
was coming after events of the
board's last meeting.
Granger Asphalt has filed suit
against Gulf County for failing to
award the firm a recent bid to
resurface CR 386, the Overstreet
road. Granger was the low bidder
for the project by approximately
$24,000 Owith their bid of
$1,271,500.
After' discussions during the
board's last meeting the contract
was awarded to the second lowest
bidder, C.W. Roberts Construc-
tion Company, which had bid
$1,295,704..
Gulf County Chief Admini-
strator Don Butler recommended
to the board that they go with the
bid of C.W. Roberts as the best
bid..,
Roger Granger, of Granger
Asphalt, questioned the decision.
Butler pointed out to- the board
past performance problems and
issues with the firm upon which
he based his recommendation.
"Your reputation in Panama
City precedes you," said
McFarland as he further
explained the board's position.
McFarland told board mem-
bers at Tuesday's meeting to
expect an emergency hearing on
the suit possibly as early as next
week.
County bid policy does allow


for board members to accept the
.lowest responsible bidder. Butler
had informed the board, that a
record of past performance prob-
lems by Granger prompted his.
decision to make his recommen-
dation.
Mill Demolition Permits
Demolition work at the Stone
Container mill site came to a halt
Friday as demolition contractors
with the. CCC Group, Inc. and
Gulf County worked through. a
dispute over permits 'needed to
tear down the complex.
During. the board meeting,.
commissioner -Billy Trayjor: asked
Building Official Michael
Hammond to update the commis-
sion on the matter. Hammond
gave the board an overview of
what occurred and explainedthat
the $25,000 permit fee was not
paid by Friday's deadline so the
project's work was stopped.
Hammond further explained
that the permit fees have since
been paid with an accompanying
letter of protest to the fees.
Traylor noted county ordi-
nance calls for a doubling of. the
fee penalty for failing to get per-
.itted and called for the board to
enforce that penalty. The board
. voted 5-0 to charge a penalty of
an additional $25,000 for the per-
mit fees.
Probation Officer
Butler.advised the board that
Gulf County Probation Officer
Barry Hand was not successfull in

A Reasonable. Facsimile


"Niche Port" Could


Bring Gulf Jobs

Port Authority members are moving forward with efforts to
market the Port of Port St. Joe. Recent challenges to the world's
economy have not made that task an easy one for them.
Even before the events on 9/11 economic indicators were in
a bit of a. tailspin. This has not created an atmosphere con-
ducive to growing a local port, never mind rediscovering one.
Sometimes you just have to play the hand you've been dealt
the best that you can.. It1 does seem that the Poft Authority
members are forging forward with those efforts, as wag evi-
denced in last week's edition of The Star.;
A weak economy can sometimes force ,potential customers
to look it ways to trim a little fat'in order 'to help their bottom

All indications point to the local port as a real and viable
shipping and export option that could serve the eastern portion
of the country. Furthermore, there are likely a host of scenar-
los, where movement of freight could be done at a cost savings.
r through the .ort of Port St. Joe.
Matching customers andopportunities is the key to putting
together a marketing effort Tor any port. Port Director Tommy'
Pitts says the Port Authority members are moving full steam
ahead to identify and capture customers for the Port;
Hopefully these efforts will reveal the "Niche Port" opportu-
nities that will put the "Port" back in Port St. Joe and bring
additional jobs to our communities.

Hope It Makes The List

The historic old Port Theatre may be on the verge of being
listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Tliis is good news for the community., We have so few his-
Storic landmarks and historic buildings in Gulf County. The last
thing we need is to let any one of the remaining, sites slip away,
from us if at all possible.
Owners Wade and Paula Clark have made great strides in
refurbishing the old building. Several times during therestora-
tion process I dropped by to shoot a few photographs of Wade
hard at work. It was obvious to anyone that saw the duo at
work they had made a wholesale commitment to the project. If
memory serves me correctly one of the reasons Wade and Paula
sold their home and moved upstairsinto the old' theatre build-
ing was to prioritize their cash flow to accomplish the task at
hand.
I remember one trip while looking skyward at the 'steel
beams and rafters only to find Wade "dangling" high above the
concrete floor. He was removing what was left of the half'-fallen-
in roof in preparation for the installation of the new metal roof
system now in place. Wade appeared to be hanging on by his
toenails during this process.
Little bits at a time they have'applied blood. sweat -and I'm
sure tears to this project.
The most recent and obvious accomplishment has been the
refurbishing and relighting of much of the neon signage on the
front of the building.
As they work on the paper work to complete application for
being listed on the National Register they need .a little help from
those of you who might have stories, pictures or old newspaper:
clippings regarding the theatre and entertainment provided
there over the years.
Anyone with information aboutt; the theatre, especially'
between the years of 1938- 1953, could help by contacting the
Clarks.' ,
Good luck Wade and Paula. We appreciate your hard work.


I felt the swish, and the wind,
as the Sears and Roebuck 'wooden
handled 22 ounce claw hammrier
passed just a fraction of' a
nanometer by my left eye as it
hurled toward its target.


Whap!
The nail I had been working so
ardentl\ on for a minute or tw ,
di'.appe:ared into the siding we
were hal-ngine o n the new %aJl in
the barn. Dad didn t like the %ay 1
wou'd tLa-ke little Prannv pecks. He
wanted, expected and demanded
we drive nails like he 'showed us,
"Don't choke, that hammer, son.
Hold ,it down,on the end where you
can get some real leverage." He'd
already reminded me a couple of
times.... ..


I hadn t gotten the message.
So he leaned back. and without a
word. backhanded a swing that
just mins.ed me-and hit the nail
right dead center.
I likened to ha1ve lumped ouL of
m\ skin. Lhis auuL is crazy! He could
have killed me! Dad wasn t long on
explanations. He had showed us.'It
was 'our responsibility to get with
the program..... .
tI mumbled to myself, peeped
'over to make sure he wasn't look-
ing, rolled my eyes in mock disbe-


hlef-and reached for another nail..
Mv Father was like no other dad in
the world! He expected things from
me that I didn t think I had! He
envisioned us as being perfect
after one lesson. and then improve
on that each day!
Dad made a production out of
the way we drove nails for. good-
ness sakes! 'Course, after viewing
up close and persona] 'the back
side of those claws whistling by....
he didn't have to tell me again!
Ever!
He. had a way.,of making you
remember!
And Dad didn t see any gray.
You did it right, or you could have
done better! Life wasn t all that
complicated for him. When, yoUt
messed up something awful,. he
liked those short answers.... you
know, like "yes sir' and "no sir"and
1" wasn t thinking'.
He was an independent cuss..
He didn t care how Kenny Butler's
'father did it, He didn t care what
time Bobby Brewer got to stay out
to. Hedidn't care how many of my
friends were going to the picture
show. If I needed to "be home",
that was the end of it. About age
^ten I gave up altogether telling him
how the rest of the world operated!
I reckon along about sixteen
he took a turn for the worse! He,
was bent on cramping my style.'
And I was itching to prove that I
was all grown up. It was that irre-
sistible force going up against the
immovable object. :-
I lo st. -
I'd head off toward my room
thinking one doay 'm going to have
a son of mt ow1n. I'm going to be the
coolest dad, I'm going to under-
stand where my boy is coming
from. He is going to take me around
to all his friends and show me
off.... -
: I peered in through that hospi-'
tal glass. I counted fingers and
toes. Someday got here a lot quick-
er than I ever imagined!
And. let me tell you. as I stood
mesmerized at the crinkled, red
faced inrfaht stirirfg balkat me
got to seeing thai fatherhood thing
in a whole'-chfferent light!
Come to think of it, my Dad
always knew what was best for his
family. He took care of .things
kinda quietly and automatically.
He provided a !lot more than just
food on the table. I know there
were a few things that I .wanted
that I didn't get. But I couldn't for
the life of me standing before that
glass think of one thing that I ever
needed that he didn't figure out
someway.....
How could I ever be the father
to -this little one that Dad was to
'me? How did he work all day and
still make me the center of his life?
'Where ^did Dad get his. instruc-
tions? .
I remembered him .comirqg
home' about dark; after unloading
shelled corn all day-I wouldri't
even let himi get inside, "Letis
throw some Daddy. I brought your
glove."
Guess how many times he said

When Relatives Coe To


WE'VE HAD RELATIVES at
our-. house -all this .week.
"Smudgie's" nephew is staving
with her and us. "Buckwheat" is
one of' the sons of 'Pep', 'who is
one of imy brother-in-law's four
black~toy poodles. "
"Smudgie' is a sister toi"Pep".
Somehow or other, I think
"Smudgie" will be glad when'
"Buckwheat" goes home. 'He
belongs to Carol and David, who
aire gdne on a week's vacation.
"Buckwheat" is no trouble to
Frenchie and me, but he has
taken over some of "Smudgie's"
private 'domains, she had just as
soon keep for her own special
occupancy.
For instance, if Frenchie sits
down', "Buckwheat" lies down on
one side and "Smudgie"' lies down
on the other; and "Smnudgie"
doesn't like sharing her "Momnma"
with "Buckwheat", one little bit!

WHEN I SIT DOWN to eat, I
have "Buckwheat" ohn one side


and "Smudgie" on the other, both
begging for handouts. Since both
hands are busy feeding the dogs,
my meal has to wait. When
Frenchie brings me a piece of
candy, or a;bowl, of ice cream 'to
my chair, here come both dogs,
bounding up in my lap ,for their
share.
You'd think "Buckwheat"
weighed 100 pounds, what with'
his voracious appetite, btit he'll
hardly' tip the scales at five
pounds!
And' "Smudgie" isn't much
larger, at seven pounds.
They "work" their weight off.
Just let someone approach


the house and they go into
action. It s non-stop barking until
the visitor either leaves or comes
in and sits down'. Then, they vie
for the, visitor's attention by try-
ing to get their bellies scratched.
They're both trying to mak6
'themselves "available" at the
same ,places, and at the same
time.

GOING TO BED at night is
an adventure. Both dogs want to
sleep with Frenchie and me; and
6oth want the choice places,
wherever that is.
"Smudgie" has taken to lying
between my legs, when I lean


Stay .
back in my recliner, in, order to
take her nap. '
Well, lately "Buckwheat' has
decided HE wamns to be between
,my outstretched legs! : And on
my chest with his head held up.
under my chin.
,After T have shaved,'he :likes,
to'.lick the after-shave lotion off-
.my neck.
Crazy dogl ,
"Buckwheat" is 'a "people
dog". He has to be in close prox-
'imity to either Frenchie or me at
all tines. If she is out in the yard,
it's my turn ,to baby the dog or
dogs; if Frenchie is sitting down,
it's. her 'turn to, baby the dogs.
Without fail. .
It hasn't been that long since'
we .had small, babies around the.
house. It'g the same thing! .
Those two toy' poodles take
up-all our time and keep us com-,
'pany at the same time.

I WONDER HOW my brother-
Sin-law and his wife manage with


their four poodles?
,All four of them arejet black
.and all four of them are lap dogs.
If one barks, they all bark; if one
gets fed a "'goodie", they all get fed
. a "goodie". It's like .having two
sets of twins at the same time.
Don't ever suggest. selling or
giving away one or more of those
little-,dogs. ,
.'They're part of the family!

"BUCKWHEAT" HAS been at
our house for only a week, but it
is :. like' he's ours already.
!'Smudgie" will be delighted when
his "momma and daddy" return
home the end of this week, but
until they do, both dogs are just
making the best of a tough situa-
tion. -
"Smudgie" doesn't get to go
out with me to get the paper, of a
morning while her "cousin" is vis-
iting. She'll be glad to get back
into that routine, again. She
misses getting to chase the squir-
rels and I know the squirrels


3)


miss being chased in the morn-

"Smudgie" hasn't even been
taken for a ride while her "cousin"
is visiting. I know she'll be glad to
resume that activity, once more.


'SMUDGIE" ISN'T a selfish
dog, but I know 'she hates like tfe
devil to share her teddy bear,'herr
ball, or her squeaky toy. I
She has played host to
"Buckwheat" before, but it wgs
only for a day or two at a time.
Never has she had to grin and
bear it for a week.
When Carol and David go off
for a spell, '"Buckwheat" spends
the night with us-and.when we go
off for a spell, "Smudgie" spends.
the night with them. They are
both experiencing a new adven-
ture.
They've both been pretty
good-so far. I 'just think. from
growls and snarls by b6th par-
ties, they can't get back to their
routines soon enough.

Mexico Beach Commissioners Want to Slow Down Year 'Round


by Tim Croft
If the Florida Department of
Transportation would agree, the
Mexico Beach city limits would
. remain a 35 mph zone
throughout the year.
City council members on
Tuesday tossed their support
behind a resolution to limit
speeds on U.S. 98 through Mexico
Beach to 35 mph.
The 'resolution carries no
practical weight; speed limits are
'determined by the FDOT.
Council members simply stat-
ed 'for the record their support of
maintaining year round the 35
mph speed limit in force during
tourist season.
.During the winter months,
.the, speed limit on U.S. 98
through Mexico Beach is 45 mph.
And there were some pockets
of support for returning to that
speed limit during the winter


j.r





Brenda


months.
Councilman Chuck Risinger
said his informal survey of resi-
dents revealed some opposition to
the 35 mph speed limit all year.
'"It is not acceptable to some
citizens in' this city," Risinger
said.
But while acknowledging a
lead foot and personal preference
for the 45 mph during non-tourist
season, Mayor Kathy Kingsland


said there are larger issues in
play.
"I think there is a safety factor
involved here," Kingsland said.
Police chief Brad Hall agreed.
He said a FDOT study done a
couple of years ago showed that
the difference in driving the
length of Mexico Beach at 35 mph
instead of 45 mph was just 36
seconds.
"It really doesn't make much


of a difference," Hall said.
"I'm not looking to hinder
somebody, I'm trying to make it
safe on that roadway."
The resolution approved by
the council also supports making
the entire length of Mexico Beach
a no-passing zone.
'That's a no-brainer," Kings-
land said.
In other business, city staff
alerted the public, and council


that the city's visioning process
would. be kicked off with a public
workshop likely to be scheduled
the last week of the month.
The public was encouraged to
attend and become part of the.
process of mapping the city's
future over the 'next five, 10 and
20 years.
"The vision doesn't work
unless we get a lot of input," said
city administrator Paul Sabiston'.


"The more input the, better the
plan."
The public was also encour-
aged to assist .the. city in deter-
mining a name for the new park
on Maryland Avenue.
Work on the park is near
completion, but a name has yet to:
be chosen.
Any suggestions from the
public can be made to city staff or
council members.


Wewa Board Hears Economic Development Call


by Tim Croft
Wewahitchka city commis-
sioners were encouraged Monday
to take an active role in revitaliza-
tion efforts currently undertaken
by the county Economic Develop-
ment Council.
In a presentation similar to
that recently provided to the Gulf
County Commission, Karen Wha-
ley of the EDC outlined a myriad
of initiatives her office has on the
drawing board.
Whaley talked about various
businesses the county would like
to lure' to Gulf County,. as eco-
nomic projects expand beyond the
port, which has been the. fulcrum
of economic development the'past
several years. ,
"Diversity is 'the key," Whaley
said. "Businesses are looking to
get away from that rat race" of
larger,' crime-ridden congested
.areas such as,Atlanta. .
Gulf County could be a prime,
relocation destination, though it
'.is hampered by. several factors,
including lack of major highway
access, health care facilities 70
Percent of the population in. the
county go outside the county for
health care and other critical
services.
However, ,Whaley 'noted that
the county is now in a position to
tap into a myriad of state grant
and,' economic incentive programs
available to spur economic devel-
opment.
And she talked of an upcom-
ing workshop, to, be.. scheduled.
concerning HUBZone, a federal
program aimed at providing
contract preference., to qualified
small businesses in a certain
areas. ,
The program is now available
to businesses in Holmes, Wash-
ington and Gulf counties.
"W'e are not just looking at
what's coming to Gulf County.

but we are looking to do it strate-
gically," said Bill Williams, chair-
man of the 19-member EDC
board.
That board is under-repre-
sented from the northend of the
county 'and Williams encouraged,
commissioners to add members
from the Wewahitchka area.
Currently, Alan McNair acts
as the north end's liaison to the-
EDC board, which has just three
members from the north end of
the county.
The north-south tensions in
the county; Williams said, are an
obstacle to economic development
which benefits the entire county.
'"This polarized approach has
paralyzed our 'community,"
Williams said.,
City manager Don Minchew'
said the presence of Whaley and
Williams at Monday's meeting
,underscores that those tensions
are changing.
"I'm pleased they are up
here,"' Minchew said, "because
there is a change occurring."
Among- business ,taken up
Monday, the Commission:
*Approved permitting parallel
parking only along the sidewalk in
front of Wewahitchka Elementary.
During the past school year
cars were parked perpendicular
or' across the sidewalk making
traversing the pavement impossi-
ble.,

no. Guess how many times he said
it was too late. Guess how many
times he said he was too tired.....
,Daddy laughed a lot more
than he frowned. He d '"take up foi
you" if you squirmed a mite more
than Morn thought you should at
church. He would play with us all
day and all night when it was time
to play. But he definitely under-
stood the "seasons" of life. There
was a time and a place..... "
He might be playing or
instructing us at age eight, but he
was thinking way down the road.
We were not going to be ten', forev-
er. We had decisions coming up
that we needed to be ready for. I
look back on it now and realize.
HE worked at being the father!
Us "getting it right" was more
important to him than us "being
best buddies". You know the
amazing part-he got both!
I hadn't even spoken to my
son yet but I was changing my
mind about being the 'coolest"
dad. I was going to love him more
than that!
Riding home from the hospital
I told Cathy that as soon as Josh
got old enough we were addirig a
room to the shed. She held our two
day old son up close and gave me
the "I don't have a clue what you're
talking about look".
"It's about being .the best
father I can be. The boy has got to
learn how to drive a nail correctly.
You'd be amazed how. much that
simple instruction carries over in
life.....

Model Kid-Trey Lester


by Tim Croft
When it comes to hot dogs,
apparently, 'six-year-old Trey
Lester can be a bit of a ham.
Which turned out to be 'a
pretty good thing when the
Wewahitchka youngster attended
the recent National Discovery Net-
work Convention at Panama City
Beach.
The network is a talent


agency which screens kids infant
to 18 for television and modeling
talent.
And during its convention
Lester won "Best Commercial
Read" for his rendition of the
Oscar Meyer commercial which
nearly anybody who has watched
television the past 40 years can
recite.

Replace .the bologna with hot

and say with gusto and diction.-
And his walk down the run-'
way at the convention to perform
might as well have been a trip-, to
an amusement park for the tow-
headed youngster in natty Bugle
Boy attire.
"It was fun when I walked up
there," Lester said. "About 500


people clapped for me, cheered for
me."
And several companies took
notice. Lester received several,
callbacks and has trips sched-
uled to Atlanta and Virginia for
possible commercial shoots.
Roughly 600 kids' from*
around the Southeast attended
the convention, with the children,
divided into age categories.
Lester competed in a division
that included about 80 children
aged six, seven and eight. Each
.was judged for most photogenic,

Coast Trail Planned


Representatives from coastal
communities met in Panama City
Beach 'on June 7 to make plans
for a coastal trail extending from
.Tallahassee to Panama City
Beach to the Alabama state line.
The workshop involved discus-
sions of existing trails and green-
ways and development .'of a
strategy for connecting those'with
a proposed trail.
While some areas such 'as
those in Walton, 'County and
Pensacola Beach have already
developed a trail system, others
have virtually no trails or green-
ways. ':Debbie Norton ,from
Pensacola Beach related, "I sup-
port your efforts and will work to
share information and resources
that were used in developing our
trails." George Wilson. Vice
President of Conservation with St.
Joe Company met, with the group
and was supportive : 'of their
efforts. .. ..'.
Gayle Oberst,, Panama City
Beach, chaired the meeting and
charged participants ilth return-
ing to their respective cornmuni-
ties and gathering information,
,about work that others are
engaged in. "Simply to have a cen-
tral point for data on existing and.
proposed work would be a,great
start," said. Oberst. Organizations
and individuals who are working
in each county will be contacted
by project members and asked to
participate on a local level to plan
and build a greenway and trail
system.
Any persons. groups or orga-
nizations working on trail deel-
opment are encouraged to contact
Paula Ramsey Pickett of the Gull
County Tunrist Development
Council for further information
about how to participate in this
regional trail development project:

Mrs. Ramsey Pickett' acknowl-
edges that'"Gulf County is in the
perfect position to develop our
green spaces and trails, and while
doing so work toward a cohesive
plan that will benefit all of the.,
regional communities.'
"With St. Joe and other
landowners developing their prop-
erties, the window of opportunity
to build trails and greenways is
present but will not be there in
years to come," Oberst said, The
project is not a short one and will
take long range plans, and efforts
to secure funding. At the next
quarterly meeting state agencies -
posed Coastal Trail and explain
opportunities to support the prq-

The size of Candace Young's
heart can be measured in the
length of her new hair style.
The nine-year-old from
Alpharetta, Ga., visited N-Style
last Friday to have her 19-inch
mane of light brown hair sheared.
By 10 inches.
The youngster who aspires to
be an actress, or the first female
-U.S President, 'or who knows
both, wasn't seeking a new look.
Instead she was helping'an.
unfortunate cancer victim some-
where to have, some hair after
chemotherapy had caused their
own hair to fall out.
"I'm not going to be a doctor
or someone like that who can help
them with the cancer. but I'm -
.going to help anyway I can,"
Young said.
:Such generosity of spirit was
born of personal experience.
Young said a close cousin,.
Katie Beth. was diagnosed with
cancer as an infant.
Subsequent treatments cost
Katie Beth her hair, (Katie Beth is
now a healthy youngster.)
SFor Young. who acknowl-
edged a soft spot for sick children
and homeless animals, her
,cousin's ordeal was one she didn't
want other children to endure.
I didn't want another child to
go through what my cousin had

to," Young said. "I didn't want
another kid to go around with no
hair and wearing hats all the
time."
So her mother, Cheryl, surfed
the Internet and found "Locks of
Love" a program which encour-
ages.those with long hair, at least
10 inches, to cut their locks for
use in wigs for young children
who have lost their hair due to
serious illness.
And -in any case, long hair
didn't turn,.out to have quite the
allure Young thought it would.
"I wanted it to grow and
grow,". Young said,, adding .that
'other than trimming the ends.she
hadn't had it cut in more than a
year.
"I thought long.hair was cool
and real pretty, But it was a mess,
full -of knots. It was so much
work."
So Young, whose family vaca-
fions on Cape San Bias each sum-
mer, visited N-Style and the
"incredible"- Fay for, a drastic
nrakeover. .
When the cutting was done,
10 inches of fine healthy hair
Were bagged to ,be sent off to
"Locks of Love" and some fortu-
nate young cancer patient.
"It feels'weird," Young said as
she tossed her head from side to
side. "But it feels great. The cool
air gets through to my neck."
Young intends to make her
hair loss a yearly event. She said
she will grow her hair each winter
to be shorn each summer for a
cancer patient's use.
"I'm going to help other chil-
Sdren '(with cancer)." Young said
with the quiet determination of a
young lady oh a mission.
Prdving that beauty isn't in
the hair, but in the heart. .

Remember-From Pg 1


"Little things like that can
happen in small towns," McNeill
said.
McNeill left the U.S. for Pole-
brook, England in March 1945
and although he flew ho combat
missions he had a few remarkable
scrapes. .I
One came as he swooped his
plane low over Allied troops one
day, so frightening a French sol-
dier that McNeill could see the
man reach for his rifle.
Sure enough when McNeill
landed, there were bullet holes in
one wing, just inches from a gas
tank,
."That was the only shot I
received," McNeill said.
:Another came when he was
flying low and suddenly ahead
appeared a set of power lines.,
"I was. considerably lower
than I wanted to be," McNeill said.
"We had not seen the power
lines."
Now power- lines in Europe
were higher off the ground than
those in the States, but for a
plane 19-feet tall the margin for
error is slim pickin's.
McNeill dove below the wires
S .and somehow squeezed through.
Upon landing his engineer
brought him grass taken from the
wheel wells.
If the wheelsI had been
deployed, McNeill wouldn't be
around to work at the family's
Indian Pass Raw Bar.
McNeill's primary duty during
his- stint in Europe was flying to
Austria to retrieve former French
POWs who had been snatched
from the Nazis by Army Rangers.
"I wanted to go on a regular
mission," McNeill said. "I couldn't
understand why they were using
the B-17s to go and get those offi-
cers out of France.
"But it Was the only thing
available."
And to retrieve as many
POWs as possible, the planes
were stripped to near unarmed

gas cans.
All but the turret gun was
removed. All armor, which was
under the pilot's seat, was also
removed to accommodate, more
people and weight.
Finally, on May 7, the word
trickled out: the Germans, on the
run since D-Day the year before,
had surrendered.
"It was the first time (in Eng-
land) I saw all the people out in
the streets," McNeill said. "At first
I couldn't figure, it out. It was big."
By the end of May he was
back in the States, preparing to
head over to the Pacific.
That changed with the drop-
ping of the atomic bomb at
Hiroshima.
"It scared me to death and 'it
still scares me to death what
effect it has on people," McNeill
said. "But we needed something
(to end the war)."
Within a few years, McNeill
completed his college education at
first Georgia Tech and then the
University of Florida.
He was married and settled
onto his family's land on the cape
and went to turpentining and oys-
ter farming and distribution.
The events of his young adult-
hood, from Pearl Harbor to D-Day
to VE and VJ Days, are as ever
present as the picture of the B-17
that adorns' one wall of his
restaurant.
"I didn't have to kill anybody,
but I- would -have," McNeill said.
"I'd' love to 'have another try to do
something for our country.
'That act, D-Day, those lives
lost, that was the very beginning
of the end of the war. It was real'
important and nobody expected
it."
As for today's children and
young adults, McNeill had some
skepticism prior to 9/11.,-
That has been tempered a bit
since that tragic day'.
'The ,children, a lot of them
don't know much about World
War II," McNeill said. "But I think
it is being brought up.more now.

"There is more fervor now. It
had died down, but since 9/11 it

Scallops
-From Pg. 1
The later into the season, the
more the scallops have had a
chance to grow and the more
meat per scallop."
S However, as Arnold noted, the
later in the season.the more one is
running the risk that the scallops
will be already harvested.
The reason for optimism
regarding St. Joseph's Bay is the
amount of recruitment, or spawh-.
ing, identified over the winter
months. .-
"We've had tremendous
recruitment in St. Joe Bay,"
Arnold said. "Higher than we have,
had in any bay in Florida."
However, Arnold said, not all
those tiny scallops grow to matu-
rity. /
So in the next week or so,
survey crews will be in, Florida
bays counting mature scallops to
assess the season ahead.
In St. Joseph's Bay, they will
plat 20 "stations" of about 600
square meters each in .and
around sea grass beds sea,grass
is essential to Scallop livelihood -
and set a transecting line through,
each station.
Divers go under at each end
of the line and count the scallops.
In all, roughly 12,000, square
meters of the bay will be sur-
veyed.
"It's very intensive work,"
A.rnold said. "We've done this for
many years. It allows us to com-,
pare not only bays, but over the
years."
Arnold could offer, only zcon-
jecture as to the factors behind
the lean scallop harvests of recent
years.
However, he said red tide,'.
which has bloomed in abundance
each of the past two;years, was
likely to, be a prime culprit.

While Florida law requires
children under six years and all
people using personal watercraft
and water skis to wear 'life vests,
they are totally voluntary for
everyone else. Many people object
to weanng conventional life vests,
finding them hot and bulky, and
forcing people to choose between
comfort and safety.
A new, compact vest that peo-
ple will, actually wear solves all
those, problems. 'The vest remains
flat/ until it becomes wet: Then a
cylinder releases carbon dioxide
and automatically inflates the
vest. and floats the wearer face
up. It is the ideal lifesaving device
for a person who is unconscious
in the water. A less -expensive
manual version,' which requires
the wearer to pull a cord for infla-
tion, is also available.
The new Vests are not hot, not
bulky and not heavy. There are no
more excuses for taking danger-
ous risks on Florida waterways.

$140, and are available at marine
supply and sporting goods stores
and from catalogues.

Judith Husband


by Tim Croft r
With the windmill action of
her right arm, Judith Husband c
propelled the Wewahitchka Lady t
Gators within 'one game of the "'
state softball semifinals.
The payoff arrived last week a
when Husband was named to the
'Class IA All-State first team EF
"Judith is the one, that makes 's
us go," said Wewahitchka coach ti
Charles. Fortner. "She is the com- a
petitor that makes us go..
"When she really gets into the u
game, she lifts us. She makes b
everybody around her play better,
and she is always into the game."
Husband, with her assort- b
ment of pitches, including a dev- n
stating change-up, was 26-1 this
past season with a 0.42 ERA. o
In 150 innings she allowed a t
mere 57 hits, just 11 for extra jp
bases, and seven earned runs. e

She struck out 188 and oppo-
ients hit just .109 against her.
She also hit .273.
For her career Husband, a
unior, has already won more
han 120 games.
Her lone loss this past season
vas a 15-inning 6-2 loss to
Arlington Country Day in the
Region 1 final.
Three of the four runs Arling-
on Country Day scored in the
inal inning were unearned.
Wewahitchka finished the
season 28-1.
Lady Gator right-fielder Lind-
say Miller, a sophomore, was
named to ,the All-State second
eam.
Miller- hit .397 with four, dou-
)les and three triples, scoring 34
runs, second on the team.
Miller's .534 slugging per-
entage was also second on the
eam and she had a team-high
476 on-base percentage.-
She also made just one error
ll year in the field.
"Lindsay is just a hustler,"
'ortner said. "She is very aggres-
ive on the. bases and forces
eams to deal with her hustle and
aggressiveness. "
Possibly, the biggest upside to
he state accolades is that Hus-
band, Miller and nearly all their
teammates return next season.
Wewahitchka had just two
eniors this past season and Hus-.
band was the lone junior who
otched regular playing time.
"(Husband and Miller), their
overall desire for the game and
he way they work at it, they are
ist a good example for everybody'
Ise," Fortner said.

Jones Selected


to All Big Bend
by Tim Croft
The hits keep coming for
Wewahitchka's Brandon Jones.
Jones was selected over the
weekend to the All Big Bend base-
ball team as determined by the
. Tallahassee Democrat.
Jones, a recent sixth-round
draft pick of the Kansas City Roy-
als, was named to the All Big
Bend first team.
Wewahitchka teammate
Blake Rish was an honorable
mention selection.'
Both players signed baseball
scholarships to attend Tallahas-
see Community College in the fall.
Jones was 38 for 69 (.551) at
the plate, this past season, with,
five-doubles, three triples and 10
home runs, second in the Big
Bend to the 11 of Brandon
Reichert of Tallahassee Godby.
Jones drove in 37 runs, sec-
ond in the area to Rish's 41.
Most remarkably,. Jones
struck out just once in 69 at-bats
in helping lead the Gators to the
Class 1A Region 1 final. ,
Jones was 5-1 on the mound
with a 1.06 ERA, fourth-best in
the Big Bend. He fanned 69 and
walked just nine in 46 innings. a
Rish was 44 for 84 (.452) at
the plate with six home runs and
a Big Bend-leading 41 RBI.
During their careers, Jones
and Rich helped the Gators reach
-the state quarterfinals twice and
the semifinals once, where in
1999, Wewahitchka lost to Arling-
ton Country Day, 1-0;

Assessment

From Page 1
Station provided by Stone.
Hess wrTote that Colbert made
his appraisal applying "statutory
factors on the time schedule pre-
scribed by law. (Stone) came on
the field late' and tried to justify
another result."'
Further, Hess wrote that the
Property Appraiser's determina-
tion of value, is "entitled to a
'strong presumption of validity
when arrived at" according to law.
"Accordingly, the Property
Appraiser's valuation for the year
should be upheld."
Hess wrote that the court
retains jurisdiction of the case
and any further orders.
It was not clear at press time
whether Hess's decision would be
appealed.
.. More extensive coverage of
, the decision and its fallout will be
found in next week's edition of
The Star.

and hula hoop contest in 'several
age brackets beginning at 5 p.m.

sion. This invasion takes a differ-
ent twist when pirates turn

gle with visitors.

SWe used to tl'fink that gumline
notches in our teeth were caused by
brushing in a saw-like motion over
the years. Another possible cause is
now being considered.
Researchers are studying the
effects of bruxism-the clenching
and grinding of teeth.
We usually brux during times of
stress, asleep or awake. Until now
bruxing has been linked mostly with
jaw joint problems (TMJ syndrome)
and its accompanying symptoms

Bruxing Your

Teeth

such as .chewing pain, headaches,
and neck problems.
Now it has been found that.
bruxism may also be a major factor
in the development of gumline
notches.
The constant flexing can cause
erosion in the weakest part of the
tooth--the neck--where most
destruction occurs. This may also
explain the problems in keeping
gum line fillings in place.
The theory is supported, in
part, by the examination of iprehis-
toric skulls. Tooth notching can be
seen even though the toothbrush
hadn't yet'been invented.

Gulf County had single mem- "

county was created by the legisla-

According to Mr. W.R.

tricts were not good for the
county. Mr. Connell served, as
county commissioner 19 years.
No .- wanted to be a county
commissioner back in the late
1920s and 1930s. The salary plus
traveling fees ($16 and 5 per
mile) were less than $20 per
month. Mr. Connell said that the
business leaders, of the county
would have to talk someone into
being a candidate each two years.
Chapter 98 of the 1920
Florida Statutes, section .05 reads
"The Board of County
Commissioners being five mem-
bers, one from each district, shall
be elected at each General
Election." General elections were'
each two years.
Mr. Connell' continually advo-
cated four year terms and county-
wide elections;' The legislature
decided to make a change in the
election of county commissioners.
Senate Bill No. 1017, Chapter
19292 (No. 297) is as follows:
An act to provide for nomina-
tions of members of Board of
County Commissioners and
School Board members of Gulf
County, FLa. by the voters of the
county at, large, AND NOT by
Districts and providing for the
repeal of all laws in conflict here-
with:
Section 1. From and after the
time this act shall become effec-
tive, nominations for the office of
County Commissioner and School
Board of Gulf County, Florida
AND not by Distnets as'provided
in Section 362 of the Revised,
General Statutes flow being-
Section 419 of the Compiled'
General laws of Flonda effective,
SJune 12, 1939.--(General acts
Regular Session 1939).
And from the minutes: of the
Board of County Commissioners,
April 18, 1939 meeting: "Motion
by W.R. Connell that Legislature
pass law that candidates for
'member of Board County
Commissioners of Gulf County be
voted upon county wide in lieu of
their respective Districts---motion

Wildfire Season
Danger Increases

With Scant Rainfall
Even though Florida's rainy
season has gotten off to a slow
start, an intense four year'
drought puts Northwest Florida at
a high risk wildfires. Low rain
levels, coupled with winter freezes
that produced more fuel have cre-
ated conditions favorable for
increased wildfire activity this
year.
The Chipola River District
reached 446 on the Keetch-Byram
Drought Index June 3, with 800
being desert-like conditions. The
index measures the amount of
moisture in the ground and vege-
tation. It also is used to determine
the threat of wildfires.
The fire season in Florida typ-
ically lasts froni late December to
the end of May, according to the
Florida Division of Forestry, but-
:recent weather conditions have
'altered that pattern.
Wildfire authorities say people
don't realize the. rain has, for the
most part. been minimal and has
evaporated rapidly. The rain is
quickly absorbed underground
because of the long-term drought
and the remaining ground mois-
ture evaporates quickly in 90-
degree heat and the sea breeze.
Escaped fire 'is the number
one cause of wildfires in Florida,
,and now is the time to be extra
careful with fire outdoors. If a fire
escapes your property, you will be
held responsible for the cost of
suppression and damage to your.
neighbor's property.
Anoi6ther major source of the
fires is lightning popping dried
treetops during passing thunder-
storms. Forestry officials are hop-
ing the area gets 'the needed
'rainfall, but understands wildfire.
producingg lightning .normally
accompanies the drought remedy.
.. Hopefully, lightning won't
'trigger a major wildfire outbreak
in the process, as it did in 1998
during the state's worst fire sea-
son in history. The fires that the
western states are experiencing
should serve as awakeup call.

ness initiatives for an economical-
ly fallow community.
To help sow that crop the
Northwest Florida Improvement
Foundation rained down some


dollars, donating $1,500 to assist
in the funding for a entrepreneur
training center for kids age 11-16.
"One of our focuses, of
course. is on education," said

Pam Selton with the Northwest Florida Improvement Foundation presents a check to Minnie Likely
of the North Port St Joe Youth Academic/Cultural Initiative as Kendra Pompey (next to Selton), Javon
Davis and Erin Hill huddle close. At the back are the Rev. Marty G. Brown, Sr. and Geraldine Lewis.


Pamela Selton of the NFIF. "They
came to us .with an idea that real-
, ly made sense."
That idea came from Likely,
the program coordinator for the
North Port St. Joe Youth Academ-
'ic/Cultural Initiative.
Likely envisioned a training
center where young people could
learn the skills that would later
on translate into business owner-
ship and providing goods and ser-
vices to the community.,
The center woIuld provide
business- training, simulated
business operations and the oper-
ation of real business endeavors.
In more basic terms, Likely
wants to begin growing today the
minority business, movers and
shakers of tomorrow.
"We want to instill in minority
youth that they can be financial
providers and business owners,".
Likely said. .
"This is, what we want to do,
plant seeds ... thereby making life
in our community more produc-
tive in the future and giving them-
,a way to. stay in the community
'and help build the community."
It is, Selton said, a way to
broaden the horizons of young
people, to offer opportunities not
readily available to them.
'They.are talking about giving
these kids something that was not
part of their' personal experience."
Selton 'continued.
'These kids need to be given
the opportunity to know they can
succeed in ways that they didn't
previously know they couldn't,"
It wasn't just a program the
.NFIF ,was supporting, but the

Retirement Opens A Whole


New VISTA for Lori Flateau


Executive Director of North Florida Child Development Sharon Gaskin and Gulf County School
Director of Transportation Don Rich worked together to provide new buses for area schools.


North Florida Child Development


Donates $130,000 for New Buses


by Tim Croft
perfect partnership is one
that benefits all parties.
S;The working relationship
betweenven Ndrth Florida Child
..evelopmefit Inc.. and Gulf Coun-
ty, Schools is one example s f :
The school distinct's bus fleet
,.has been bolstered by two as a
'result of its. partnership with
S North Florida Child Development
SInc.. and Head-Start.
:. Using that partnership to
leverage federal dollars available
through a Head Start program
improvement grant. North Florida
Child Devel6pment was able to
secure $130,000 for the two new
canary yellow Bluebird buses.
"We are going to put them in
the fleet, of the Gulf County
Schools," 'said Sharon Gaskin,-
executive director of the North
Fl6rida Child Development.
."It's a partnership, .they

transport our children."
The partnership also allowed
North Florida Child Developmnent
to purchase the buses through
the state's bid list, saving roughly
$40,000 ori the two vehicles.
Each bus can carry up to 71
students of kindergarten age or
younger. They are equipped with
seat belts now a requirements
for new school buses and seats
that are adaptable to child seats.
Additionally, both buses come
equipped with wheelchair lifts.
"It gives them the capability of,
picking up disabled students."
said Don Rich, transportation
coordinator for the district.
In addition to the 1,200 stu-.
dents'the district transports each
day roughly 52 percent of stu-.
dent enrollment it also carries
roughly 100 Head Start and Pre-K
students.
That makes three buses from


Head Start as part of the district's
fleet. : "'
"The, school system benefits
(from the partnership) by having
our Pre-K students picked up
(along with children in Head
Start)," Rich said.
The new purchases bring to
three the number of buses. pur-
chased by North Flonda Child
Development through Head Start
and in turn placed in the district's
fleet.
That represents one-seventh.
of the number of district buses on
the road on any given school day.
The buses, with their air con-
ditioning. are also handy to have
for field trips and out-of-town ath-
letic games. Rich said.

"And the air conditioning can
help cutdown on discipline prob-
lems (on a typical school day)." he
added'.

Update Dad's

source of stress. Just do for Dad
what he won't do for himself:
update his wardrobe with the lat-
Set summer fashions while saving
him a trinp to the store. If your
favorite Dad is one of those men
who' doesn't like to shop for
Clothes, giving him clothing is tw
gifts In one. .
Although most 'men don't
enjoy shopping for clothes, they
do enjoy looking good. Men like
gifts that are practical and when it
comes to clothing, they look for
comfortable, resilient and stylish
items. Tan. taupe, lighter olives
and blues, and softer yellows are
the hottest colors for summer.
Leave the navy blue. gray and'
black behind. Warmer weather
and longer days call for lighter.
more playful colors. .,
Explore new fabrics as well. :
Sportswear made of linen and silk
offers a comfortable and more
stlish alternative to t-shirts.
These lunxunous fabrics are easier
to care for than ever. This season
you'll also find silk blended with
cotton to create more wearable
casual clothing. Don t be afraid of
synthetics. Polyester shed its ugly
image years .ago and its back in
softer, more fashionable forms.
Microfiber pants and outerwear
are virtual must-haves in any
active man's closet.
As for styles, the retro look
reigns this year. Camp collar
shirts are everywhere. Solid colors
are great for everyday wear. while
printed silk choices are exception-
ally comfortable and offer a
slightly trendier look and feel.
Cargo shorts are still a hot item;

-where there is a boat ramp with
boats launching all during the
day?, I, too, took advantage qf the.
beauty and safety of the Eagle
harbor area on 'tie holiday-week- '
d. All types of water.activity can '
be expected in that area on sum-
Smer weekends, and that- is what
S; we observed. ; .
It was nice to see families pit-
: picking and swimming, boats
cptning and going, anchoring to
let occupants dive and -swim,
ih orkelers, kayakers, jet-skis and
: waverunners coming and :going,,
occasionally pulling a skier, and
S"fishermen catching fish, all within
the Harbor area. Everyone
seemed to be enjoying themselves,
and, I assume, would have left the
area if they had felt threatened in
any way.'..
Jet skis and waverunners
ARE a part of the motorized boat
community and are governed by
the same "rules of the sea" as any
Other vessel yrou see on the water.
The registration sticker that I buy
for my boat every year affords me
' "the same privileges as any other


vessel you see on the public
waterways. There are a few regu-
lations particular to, this type of
wvatercraft. and we try to always
abide by those, as well as remem-
bering to be courteous to other .
boaters and fishermen. Most of
the. local riders we know are the
same way. We cannot be responsi-
ble for the antics of unsupervised
kids nor inexperienced drivers,
renting a ski for the first time, any
more than you or I are responsi-
ble for underage or incapacitated
automobile drivers.
State Park personnel have
their hands full runninP the park
itself. they shouldn't have to
babysitt" those who are using the
pirk's surrounding waters, nor
should they have to spend their
time listening to never-ending
complaints. The Marine Fisheries
Commission has the responsibil-
ity of patrolling our public water-
ways, and they are very vigilant in
trying to keep. our waters safe.
Ban? Ban an activity' that can
be enjoyed by people fromage 2 to
72? Ban the vessel that does the
least .amount of damage to our
bay grass beds'? No! A day of boat-
ing is such a great way for farni-
l ies to spend time together.
whether it's on our bay. or on the
local rivers. We are so fortunate
that these areas are so accessible.
and you will hardly ever go on an
outing without 'running into a
neighbor or friends. So, come go
with us sometime and let us show,
you how you can abide by the
laws and still enjoy the sport.

2001 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Mexico Beach Water System
We are pleased to 'present to you this year's Annrual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the
quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with' a safe and dependable sup-'
plyof drinking water. We wa you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and
protect our water resources. 1, are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water drawn
from a series of four wells. The wells draw from the Floridan and the Sand & Gravel Aquifers.
We are pleased to report thr't our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements.
This report shows our water quality results and what they mean..
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Frank Hall at (850) 648-3002.
We encourage our valued 'customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of
our regularly scheduled council meetings. They are held on the second tuesday of every month at 7;00 PM (CST); Mexico Beach
Civic Center.
The City of Mexico Beach routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws,
rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the reiules of our monitoring for the period of
January 1st to December 31st, 2001. As authorized and approved by EPA, the State has reduced monitoring rcqiireme'itnt fr'
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, for example [unregulated contaminants, or lead and copper contaminants],
though representative, is more than one year old.
In the table below you will find terms and abbreviations you might not be familiar with. To help you better understand these
terms we've provided the 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 is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Non-Detect or "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, triggers treatment or other requirements which
a water system must follow.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one Part by weight of analyze to 1 ilhoion parts by weight of the
water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per. liter (ugl), 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,; nridcan pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human
activity.
*Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and-metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater"
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, urban stormwat'er runoff, and
residential uses.
(D) Organic 'chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of indus-
trial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storms after runoffand septic s) s-
tems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities:
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contam-.
inants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water
which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected,to contain at least small amounts of some contam-
inants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the.water poses a health risk. More information.
about contaminants 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 contaminants in 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).
We at City of Mexico Beach work to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask that all our customers help us protect our
water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our children's future.

Real Estate Q,' 4
Answers to Real Estate questions
from your local Century 21 Agents.
HOW TO SIMPLIFY YOUR REAL ESTATE BUYING/SELLING EXPERIENCE
By: Ellen Allemore
Today's real estate consumer has a lot to consider during the sale or purchase of a
home. 'Be it waiting for the right buyer/seller, mortgage rates, or the moving truck, the
experience can take a bit of patience on.the part of the consumer. With this in mind, 't is
incumbent upon real estate brokers/agents/firms to institute services that will make the
buying/selling process hassle-free..
Realizing this trend is not going away, the CENTURY 21 System has.worked to
improve the experience of buying or selling a home through the CENTURY 21 Preferred
Alliance Program. The program offers consumers and brokers access to strategic alliances
with various links to home-related value added products and services. Making the proes '
easier and much more convenient," said Ellen Allemore, Century 21 Gulf Coast Realty.; .
Among the products and services offered through these alliances are ADT Home
Security Systems, CENTURY 21 Home Protection Plans and Budget Truck Re'ntals, just
to name a few. The programs are offered at preferred pricing for all CENTURY 21 clients
Therefore, the programs involved focus heavily on the immediate, yet long-term value of
the service/product for,the,consumer. For example, homeowners will have their lawn
equipment, home warranties, and home security systems for many years'of use. All of,
which come as a result of their p6rchase/sale through the CENTURY 21 System.
"Today's consumer demands that a real estate firm provide more service than justhe'
sale and the purchase aspect of the transaction. With that in mind, our Preferred Allidnce'
Program has been well received and very popular as .a result. Customer satisfaction rates:
are soaring, post-transaction surveys have been very positive which has bolstered the
overall success., of the program among consumers," said Ellen Allemore, Century 21 Gulf,
Coast Realty. '

Studies have shown over the
last few years that the number of
pests a lawn has is somewhat
proportional to the amount and
types of fertilizer applied. Persons
who fertilize three to four times a
year, or who use liquid/quick
release fertilizers, see many more
pest problems. Having the "green-
est yard" in the neighborhood is
not always a good thing when the
female species of an insect is out
searching for a good place to lay
her young. Sticking with two or
three applications of. fertilizer
yearly has been encouraged by
the University of Florida. We have
found that a 10-10-10 fertilizer
with minor nutrients does best.
Early June is the best time to
apply an insecticide designed to
kill baby mole crickets if you have
had a problem with them this
spring. The adult crickets will be
dying soon, but before they do,
.they will deposit eggs throughout
the lawn insuring their offspring
will "give you fits" in the months
to come. Applying a product
called Oftanol now will kill those
young crickets within the first fewi
weeks from the time they hatch.
For it to work however, it needs to.
be watered in almost-immediately
after application; It may be neces-
sary to treat smaller areas and
then irrigate those before .moving
on to others if you have to %water
with a sprinkler on the end of a
hose. Note that most products
sold across the counter to home-
owners, are not effective 'against
the larger crickets so timing of its
use is critical to its efficiency.
If areas ,begin to die in the
lawn, it is necessary to determine
whether it is insects or if a disease
might be involved to know what
product to apply. A quick diag-
nostic tool to eliminate insects as
a potential problem is a soap
flush: mix two tablespoons of a
mild detergent in two gallons of
water without making it sudsy.
At the edge of where the grass
is dying (but not totally dead yet)
slowly pour this over a 26x2 foot
area and then wait to see what
comes scurrying out of the'
ground after-two to three minutes.
If chinch bugs, mole crickets
or caterpillars surface, spraying
with a general purpose insecticide
such as' Thiodan, Orthene or
Malathion might be warranted for
that area and several feet sur-
rounding it. If noi insect is
observed, applying an ,insecticide
would be meaningless.
Instead, assume a disease is
involved and try stopping the
spread by applying a general pur-
pose fungicide such as Daconil.

2002-03 Budget
Funds New Veterans'
Nursing Homes
Governor Bush signed the
state's 2002-03 budget, which is
committed to honoring Florida's
veterans, as well as making gov-
ernment smaller, more respon-
sive, and more accessible to
Florida's citizens. '
The Florida Department 'of
Veterans' Affairs' (FDVA's) budget;
proposed by the governor, pro-
vides .an overall 2002-2003 allo-
cation of $32.7 million, of which
$7.8:million is General Revenue
(GR) and $24.9. million is Trust
Fund (TF). .
"Thanks to the commitment
ofGovernor Bush we will be abl6
to continue serving those
Floridians who have served their
country and state," stated
Jennifer Carroll, FDVA's executive
director. -
"Construction has, begun on
two new state veterans' nursing
homes in Bay and Charlotte coun-
ties, to be completed in mid 2003,
requiring GR funding for initial
staffing and operating costs as we
.build. the resident census.
$700,000 has been allocated.:
r "Legislation passed last year`
provided for improvements in
Florida's nursing home industry
staffing standards, directmg us in
our State Homes program to pro-
vide for additional staffing."
Flonda is home to the largest
population of the most seriously
disabled veterans in the nation
and home to the second largest
population of veterans with a ser-
%vice-connected injury or illness.
intensifying the need for long-
term care options.
"Our veterans are fortunate to
* have such a strong advocate in
Gov. Bush." C rroll further
stated. -"He recognizes that even
in this era of tight budgets. con-
servatuve spending, and the need
for smaller and more efficient gov-
ernment, veterans are a special
category.
"Our veterans were there for
us-when we needed them, and the
governor and I will ensure that we
are there for them when they need
us. Our role as an advocate and
facilitator for Flonda's veterans is
'our mission. Our hope is to be
able to perform this task far into
the future with quality and a level
of honor befitting our clients-
Florida"s veterans."
Florida's 1.7 million veterans
comprise, along with their fami-
lies and survivors, over 25 per-
cent o( the state's population.
More than's3QO.000 veterans are
age 75 and older and almost one
million are over 65-making long-
term care a priority in meeting the
specific needs of an aging veteran
population.
Another high pnority issue in
FDVA's budget includes the cre-
ation of a recurring Information
'.Technology (IT) appropriation.
: With : this budget, FDVA
retains two consistent and overar-
ching strategic goals, which serve
both to identify the department's
fundamental direction and to.
define the needs of the con-
stituency: provide information,
advocacy and quality health care
services to Florida veterans; and
improve the economic status of
Florida veterans, their families.
and survivors.
