In a reversal of indications..
from a week ago, Smurfit-Stone
Container 'Corp. has decided to
drop its appeal of a recent ruling
by a circuit court judge and pay
its 2000 tax bill.
A Smurfit-Stone spokes-
woman in Chicago, who acknowl-
edged the 'sensitivity of the issue
and referred all questions for
attribution to local officials, con-
firmed that the company has
decided to put the entire tax mat-
ter in the rearview mirror
SShe said the company would
be settling its. tax obligation to the
county in short order.
Additionally, she said the
company was in the process of fil- '
ing paperwork withdrawing any
appeal of a recent ruling by Cir- ,
cuit Court Judge Glenn Hess that
upheld Property Appraiser Kesley

Researchers were optimistic
about the. harvest ifi St. Joseph
Bay due to the number of scallop
larvae, or recruitment, seen dur-
ing winter months.
But scallops, which have a
life span of about 18 months,
fight long odds to survive to edible
size, even though a ,fertile adult
will lay on average roughly 1 mil-
lion eggs when spawning.
"Well over 99 percent will not
even survive to be a baby scallop,"
The odds are lengthened
when the number of scallops in' a
given area are depleted, because
the higher concentration of scal-
lops, the better the "recruitment."
Arnold added that water clar-
ity was a likely culprit for recent
lean scallop harvests.
"You've had some red tide
problems up there the past couple
of years," Arnold said.
ANRR workers is a major concern
of the company's and the area
'"The St. Joe Company wants
to do everything it can to help pro-
mote a diverse and multifaceted
economy for' Gulf County," Ray
'This sale could bring another
partner to the community who is
interested in qualityjobs and eco-
nomic growth," he added.
It is.unclear at this' time how-
such a move might impact local
employees of the ANRR. The best
case scenario would be for an
eventual new owner to. employ'
most if not all of current employ-
ees in the new operations.

That's A Winner!!
It's Up To Us To
Keep It Special
Last week I stopped by to talk with one of the community's
recent imports about how she and the family were, enjoying their
move to Gulf County.
She was all smiles while explaining how happy they were
with the move from the Atlanta area. It had turned out to be
every bit as wonderful as they had imagined it would.
At that point she began to talk about: how special this place
is. Things we, locals take for granted are considered as very
unusual or special happenings in other areas of the country.
"This morning on my way downtown (Port St.. Joe) I saw two
children along the .roadside riding on push scooters enjoying
themselves," she stated as her eyes gleamed with admiration.
"You would never see that in Atlanta," She added.
"Shhhhhh!l!!!! Don't tell anybody," I retorted. If everybody in
Atlanta knew about this place they might all move down here
and then we would be just like them.
I'm not sure Dr. Beach knew this a few weeks back when he
declared that St. Joseph State Park has' the world's #1 beaches,
but we also have the world's best living environment. Most of us
who were fortunate enough to have been raised here could spend
'hours sharing stories about childhood adventures that our par-
ents would have never allowed us to be involved in if we lived in
I have volumes of memories from days on the bay, at the
parks, roaming the streets, visiting neighborhood friends, and
generally getting-involved in the type mischief kids are supposed
to be able to get involved in without their parents having to:worry
(too much) about where they are and what they're doing.
This has changed very little in our community since I was a
child. My children experienced most: of the same things I did'
when I was a:young'en and now my grandchildren are off to a.
pretty good start also. ,
Anyone 'who visits this part of Florida's unforgettable coast
could never forget just how unforgettable it is. The publicity from
-Dr. Beach's announcement is just the latest example of this area
being discovered. Every week it seems another development or
subdivision is being announced somewhere in the Giulf County
and Mexico Beach area. ,
The real challenge before ourdcommunities is going to be
retaining all this 'specialness"' as we get "discovered" by the rest
of the world. Folks moving ini are moving here because it is s6
wonderful. Who could blame them for that reasoning? Most of us
" who currently live here have no desires to see wholesale changes
that would dramatically impact a way of life we love.
It has become obvious to all of us, I'm sure, that changes are
coming. It's inevitable. Hopefully both old and new residents.
alike will pledge to forever keep this area just as special as it is
Have you ever wondered why some of the ancient Roman
structures have withstood the test of time.
A few months back Tommy Pitts was telling me the Romans
had, their engineers stand under bridges or inside of structures
they designed when the main construction support braces were

around over 2,000 years later.'
Maybe that's .'where the term kriotheads comes from.
Guess you could say they buried their mistakes and their
It has been a rough week in
the St. Louis Cardinal nation.
I got the news on Jack Buck
early last Wednesday morning..
John Stewart, a college teammate
and special friend for thirty years
called. Kes.. I wanted to tell Iou
ihov. s,*rr I arI.
i hadnL ec1tn he-rd yet Mr.
Bucl,. had pass-,ed away shortly
before midnight ,J.S. and I Lalked
quietly for a Ie Iinulte.. and
then. I .aSI alone.
Jack Buck and I came to the
Cardinals at about the same
titne-in 1954.1 was just barely
old enough to follow the game on
the radio. Jack was in his first year
as a play-by-play announcer. I was
finally tall enou-gh to reach the
k.nobs on our old stand-up Zenith.
Jack Buck and i spent many
happy hours on separate ends o01
that old bo.x!
He wasn t pushy or loud. He
didn t intimidate Vou with long
words or know it all expressions.
He simply, in a very frank and
forthright manner,, told you what
was unfolding on thebaseball field
in front of him.
He was the eyes for all of us!
And as the lazy summers of
the 50s gave way to the more
tumultuous ones of the 60s Jack
became more than the guy bring-
ing the games into the living room.
You can t spend that much quality
time with one guy without his hon-
esty. his concern for others, his
dignity and his love, for 'your"
game (and. your team) coming
Now, I know we didn't win
much back in those days. But it
wasn't Jack's fault. He would have
never said it right, out loud on the
radio but I think he felt just like I
did..... if we could have just gotten
Stan Musial to the plate every
inning.... We'd a'never lost a game!
1964 was our year! After eigh-
teen years of trying and falling
short our beloved Redbirds finally
won it all. World Champions! It
was all that much sweeter because
we had all been waiting for so long!
Jack had shown us for years
how to lose with courage and
honor. He showed us in ',64 how to
win with humility and grace.
College and life kinda inter-
rupted my baseball schedule. -.I
missed more games tha t I heard.
But there was something comfort-
ing, soothing, safe if I. could just
hear Jack's voice giving out the
line-up., describing OzzieI Smith
going into the hole to: backhand
oneT, Jack Clark pulling a long shot
dow-n the left field line, or his
famous call on the last out of'a
Cardinal victory, "That's a winner!"
All was right with the world.
Mr. Buck was too good to keep
for myself. He broadcast football,
games nationally on both T.V.. and'
radio. He :hosted talk shows. He
emceed banquets. He was in the
television booth for All-Star games
and World Series. He got to know
everybody that was somebody!
'But he never forgot us. Not
one of us!
Years ago a youngster in St.
Louis walked up to. him to solicit
some funds, "Mr. Buck, I'm raising
money for..... and the winner gets
to sit with: you for an inning in the
KmVX 'radio' booth. '" Jack' stick a
'hi2ndred dollar bill in his hand and
said: "See you'behind the mike.'
Jack Buck was a decorated
World War II veteran. He is the
father of eight. He has been elect-
ed to 11 halls of fame. Including
the one in Cooperstown! But every-
thing that you'd ever heard or that
was ever written about himclearly,
and emphatically, pointed out that
he was even a better person than
he was a sportscaster!
I met him briefly in 1995. He
was coming out of the television
booth after a ball game in Atlanta.
John Stewart was with me. "Mr.
Buck," I tried not to stammer as he
reached for my hand, "I'm Kesley
Colbert and--" ..:
"And you grew up listening to
me ..on the radio." .He smiled. I.
guess' it was written all bver pTy
face! He also stopped in the middle
of a throng of people to' chat for a
moment and thank- me. THANK
ME! He had it backwards....
I -knew this guy was alright

atwe has begun the installation of
Phase IV of their water project, in
the greater Southport area.: This
addition to the current water sys-
tem will provide two more miles of
water lines and serve approxi-
mately 100 households with the
potential to service 300.
The construction of Phase IV
will provide water service for all
areas north of Edwards Road on
Resota Beach Road. Four of the
main areasserviced by this addi-

Unlike the previous water

And remember, before diving,
fly a flag.
What trips a lot of scallopers
up, Kirkland said. is the failure to :,
use'a diver-down flag while snor-
kelingor diving for scallops.
A dive flag must be at least
12-,inches-by- 12-inches if away
from a Boat, for instance for using

"A dive flag must be present if
you are snorkeling.". Kirkland
said. "That is the one thing that
leads to more tickets."
If any boater approaches a
dive flag, it is encouraged they
remain at least 300 feet away
from the flag.
"That is really dangerous,"
If giving the flag wide berth is
not possible, the. boater should
h, otor at
of the boat.
The final word on diving it
is illegal in any channel.
It is. also important to note,
Kirkland said, that all waters west
of the Mexico Beach canal to the
Alabama line are closed to scal-

return to closed waters.

Medicines and Drugs
It is very important for you to realize that non-prescription,
over-the-counter products are drugs. And, as such, it is very possi-
ble for one of these drugs to interfere or have an: interaction with'
a prescription medicine you might be taking.
Always inform your doctor of any non-prescription drugs
that you are taking And, it is also a good idea to mention these
to your pharmacist when you, are having a prescription filled We
can help you to use needed medicines more intelligently.

Fellow Gulf Countians,
On September 10, 2002, you will
elect your next County Judge. I want to
be that person. In deciding for whom you
will cast your vote I ask that you con-
sider first my legal experience. I have
served the people of Gulf County for
more than 31 years as a lawyer in pri-
vate practice, as an Assistant Public
Defender, as an Assistant State
Attorney, and as Judge of your County
Court. I have handled a wide variety of
civil and criminal cases and have partic-
ipated in more than 100 jury trials as a
lawyer or judge.
This extensive legal experience cer-
tainly qualifies me to be your County
Judge. But there is more to being a
judge than just legal experience. Judges
are called upon every day to make deci-
sions which affect peoples' lives. There is
a good chance that someone will ques-
tion every one of those decisions. It is
important, therefore, that the judge
making those decisions knows the law
and has the courage to follow it. But it-
is just as important that the judge be
a person who has a great deal of
patience and common sense and one
vho treats people with dignity and
Having lived for 57 years, raised two
children, lost a spouse to cancer and
epernnced m, fair share of life's pro'b-
lems, I have learned patience, respect
for people, and the importance of doing
right. I want to continue using all my
experience as your County Judge.
If you have any questions about my
qualifications or experience please call
me at 229-6573. I could be pleased to

December 15, 2001. Lucas
Morgan, a unit forester for St. Joe
Timberland was checking an area
in Tupelo Bend near the swamp
river where the power lines cross
the Brothers River.
Lucas spotted a large brown-
colored bird hopping along the
dirt road and, at first glance,
thought it to a turkey, but closer
observation revealed a young
American bald eagle! This was the

(FWC) who contacted FWC officer
Bob Shipman. Now, Bobl has; a
reputation of beirig able 'to cap-

proved to be no easy feat.....not an
easy thing to do ,,anyway and,

with a grass mat inside, so he
wouldn't slip 'n slide around while
in movement. This also protects
the feathers and makes it easier to'
reach down and collect him with
talons exposed for the fight with
the enemy....me! After having.
been placed on a throw on the
examining table, as reported by
Lucas and Bob, he had a broken
left wing, but no other signs of-
injury.. Next, a. little anesthesia
and then to the X-ray machine.
Picture taken, back to the table
and view the pictures. Birds that
are highly stressed are at greater
risk when holding them down or
,putting them under for, surgery.
This makes it a job of efficiency
Pictures viewed, the bird was
prepared for surgery, so that the
compound fracture could be
repaired and immobilized. As Dr.
Tim was cleaning the wound a
small piece of lead was found and
another x-ray showed a foreign
item. The two pieces. were pack-
aged for future need. My job was
to hold the bird s legs and head
making sure the talons or beak,
didn't move toward the hands that
heals, and to watch the breathing
and listen to the heart rate.,
We had to stop once, just to
make sure,- and 'then when fin-
ished. Doc fashioned a curved bi-
valvr shaped cast and placed it on
the lirst metacarpal just below the
wrist on the left wing and then-
taped it in place. This would be on
for three weeks.
The next step was to observe
the bird as he came out of the
anesthesia'. He was weighed and
determined to 'e a male and given
a name: l'Ir. Victory! He was
named- for the small miracles of
-being fouid by .someone who was
in the nght place at the nght time:
by his successful.capture: by his'

without any problems: and in

REV. JOHN ADKINS, PASTOR
roundingss, he found the stump
and claimed it for the next few
weeks. finally working his way up
to the perch after he figured out
that he could get there from the
stump or from the ground!
Three weeks had passed and
it was time to check the wound
and the healing process. Back in
. that ole box. back to Dr. Nelson s
,.and back to the table, under anes-
thesia, for X-rays.
Feisty as ever! The healing
looked good! Doc was pleased!
Now, the cast would go back on'
arid would remain for six weeks
this time. It should be healed by
SLX weeks later; it was time to
return to Doc Nelson. It was time
to get in the corner, turn those
talons upward to fight the
"enemy" and be placed in the box
carrier and then do it all over
again at the vet's office. The stress
level would be high at this time.
But, the bone was healed! That
was sweet success and another
little miracle. Again, as he'has
before, Dr. Nelson did a great job!
The survival of this bird was up to
him...he was a fighter and a sur-
vivorl A stubborn hI1 devil!
* Back to the muse for a couple
*of weeks and then to Big Bend-
Wildlife Sanctuary. with whom I1
mv affiliated, and into the night
pen where he would remain untilI
.he showed us the .signs of being
able to fly in the wild and the need
to be released! Betsy (Knight) fed
and cared for him real well and
-,coaxed him to fly. as for a few
days, his stubbornness kicked in.
and, he decided .he. would rather
walk and hop than fly! It only took
a little while for him to learn that
he would have to fl': he didn't like
our voices or footsteps as we set
out to feed the other birds housed
nearby, so he tried to get away
f"orom us. Also. the two adult bald .
eagles in captivity and educa-
tional birds, Alohaa and Agena,.
"talked and carried on conversa-
tions known only to eagles, helped
make him feel at home until-he
was ready for release.
And. that. day came when
Betsy called me aid said. He's
ready!' I could not wait to call
Lucas and set up .a date. Lucas
had been by to visit Mr. Victory
banging his wife and children on
occasion, and supported the

I have 'no idea what kind of pic-
tures Steve and Lanny could get,
but they have to be hilarious! Not
from their picture-taking skills,
but the way Victory pushed off
and went...not realizing what he,
had -accomplished....he freed him-
self! It was not a graceful sight of
releasing himself, but he was
free! He flew for the first time in
He flew across the, little creek
and landed on the other side. He
would orient himself and then do
the thing he hadn't done for a';

for Mr. Victory, but for all who

Jerry's Kids- From Pg 1
Several were in evidence Mon-

brood of animals from the St.
Joseph Bay Humane Society to
William Rish Park to interact with
Counselor Lena Cabrera and Austin Gleaton, 14,, of Woodville
have found a new friend in a pup from the St. Joseph Bay Humane
the MDA kids, ,
As they held tiny kittens,
played fetch with a dog or allowed
another pooch to lounge in a lap,
the wide smiles and gleaming eyes
described the moment.
As did the camaraderie
between counselors and children.,
"'here is so much of a bond
when you come here for a week to
'take. care of someone, be friends
with somebody," said Dylan
McCrory, a Tampa Jesuit senior
making his third trip to the MDA.
"I know this sounds (like a
cliche), but it has really' changed
'These are just normal kids,
just like anybody else. Heck, a lot
of them are smarter than me.
They just can't walk. You get close
to them, become their .friends, it
just changes you." ,
William Rish Park serves as
the ideal setting for some uncom-

uncommon place, just a short
distance from the country's No. 1
The park has *been hosting.

Sitting on federal 'land leased
to the state, the park hosts some
100-plus groups and more than
6,000 visitors' each year, accord-'
ing to park manager Billy Quinn,
With its winding boardwalks,
spacious cabanas, and many
ramps, it was established specifi-
cally to offer physically and devel-
opmentally challenged individuals
a taste of the sand and surf not,
always readily available to them.
"It's operated by the Depart-
ment of Children and Families
and it's the only one in the state
like it," Quinn said. "We get kids
from all over."
While most of the MDA kids
there this week are from around
the Panhandle, some have trav-
elled from Alabama and Georgia.
"Everything (Quinn) does for
them is so great," Wesolowski
said. "This is all so special for the

Title Needed For Off-Road Vehicles
After June 30, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission will no longer regis-
ter off-highway vehicles.
In place of registering vehi-
cles, new legislation. will require a
certificate of, title from the
Department of, Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) for
all off-highway ,vehicles pur-
chased by a Florida resident after
July 1 or any off-highway vehicle
that is owned by a resident and is
operated on public lands in,
Florida. Tracks, half-tracks and
buggies will not have to be titled
Sunder the new legislation.
The change is a result of the
Florida Legislatuire passing House
Bill 1681. A provision in the bill
established the T. Mark Schmidt
Off-Highway Vehicle Safety and
Recreation Act. The legislation
repealed the part of the law that
required the FWVC to register off-
Florida law defines an off-
highway vehicle as any ATV (all-
terrain ehicle)l. or off-highway
motorcycle that is used off roads
or highways for recreational pur-
poses and is not registered and
licensed for highway use.
Titling fees for off-highway
vehicles will go into a trust'fund
administered by- the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services to expand,
opportuinties for off-highway
vehicle use on public lands. The
legislation also created an Off-.
.Highway Recreational Advison'
Committee that will establish
policies as guides in establishing
new off-highway vehicle areas and

SELECT A SAVVY REAL ESTATE AGENT....:.r, '. .ih a i .:.:e .ful 'rack re:..,rd in your neighborhood,
backed by resources lhoa e.lend iroic. uir.de hD,..n.:l markets. Make sure the agent prepares an effective
listing of your properly "on ihat c.illrne all ih- tfe.ures that make your hore unique. Also, it's smart to

OFFER THE RIGHT PRICE. Slau, h oa pr..:e lha is reasonable for your neighborhood and the size
of your home. Comparing the price of your home with similar nearby listings is an easy way to be sure
you are offering the right price. Comparing the opinions of two independent appraisers will also help you
PAY PART OF THE CLOSINGCOSTS...usually 3'to 5 percent of the loanamount. This will attract those
. first-time buyers who are short on cash for down-payment and closing costs. Offering to turn over per-
sonal property such as washing machines and dryers, refrigerators and flower boxes can also attract buy-
ers looking for the best deal.
ACCEPT CONTINGENCY AGREEMENTS. Make your sale contingent upon the sale of the buyer's
home. This takes away buyers' fears of juggling two properties and mortgages at the same time. :
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CORPORATE RELOCATION TRADE. Be sure that your broker is connect-
ed to a relocation network one capable of brining in buyers from distant places. And, of course, try to
get your employer to provide you with relocation assistance, too.
MAKE YOUR HOME STAND OUT Fresh paint and flowers can go a long way in impressing buyers.
Tend to such details as moving the lawn, fixing stubborn door knobs and sliding doors, and straightening

while attending day care.
ud Parents have a positive atti-
en tude about sun protection, yet
many send their kids out to play
every day without proper protec-
bon. Parents are more likely to
apply sunscreen when a child is
swimming than playing outside.
Parents also did not dress
children with sun protection in
mind despite the fact that outdoor
play sessions at nine North
Florida day care centers lasted an
average of 57 minutes.
Researchers observed pre-
schoolers playing outdoors at the
centers 'during the summer
months and found that their
clothing-most often cotton T-
shirts and shorts-did.not provide
adequate protection from the sun.
Although 89 percent of par-
ents believe that sunglasses and
hats would reduce a child's risk of
skin cancer, only 'two children
were seen weanng sunglasses and
only one child was seen wearing a
hat, the study found. The average
temperature was 89 degrees and
the average LU index was 9 dur-
ing observation times.
This iss of serious concern
because the parents were knowl-
edgeable about skin cancer. and
they professed confidence in their
ability to limit their children's sun
ex-posure.-but they failed, to do so.
SThere is. evidence that high expo-
sure to sunlight in early childhood
is associated with a high risk of
developing skin cancer, particu-
larly malignant melanoma, as an
S Medical authorities advocate
the use of sunscreen with an SPF
of 15 or greater and sun avoid-
ance between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Clothing such as long-sleeved
shirts, long pants, wide-brimmed
hats and sunglasses is recom-
If parents did not always
dress children appropriately, it
may have been because of the.lim-
ited amount of sun-protective
clothing and products for children
in retail stores.
The study underscores the
need for parents to step up their
efforts to protect their children
from the sun and work with day
care staff to ensure that the pro-
tective items they send to the cen-
ter with their child-a hat and
sunscreen, for example-are
used. The study also points out
the need to educate retail buyers
of children's clothing and store
personnel of the importance of
stocking and displaying children's
sun-protective clothing and
The Rise and Fall
of Type 2 Diabetes
It's an unfortunate fac f of
modern life: diabetes is on the
rise. In fact, an estimated 100 mil-
lionr people worldwide have dia-
betes, and because symptoms can
develop gradually, many don't
even know they have It.
Diabetes. is a disorder' in
which glucose, a type of sugar,
can't be properly utilized by the
cells of the body. Instead. glucose
accumulates in the bloodstream
and is eliminated in the urine.
Type 2 diabetes is on the rise.
This type is also known as adult-
onset diabetes, since it usually
becomes apparent in people in
their late 50s or earl ..60s;
However. recently there has been
an alarming increase in type 2
diabetes among younger peoples
well. Researchers attribute this: to
the rising rates of obesity in peo-
ple of all ages;' over 80 percent of
people with type 2 diabetes are
"- Why be concerned about all of
this? Because diabetes is associ-
ated with serious health compli-
cations: blindness, kidney failure,
limb amputations, coronary 'dis-
ease, and stroke.
The good news is that a sensi-
- ble diet and exercise can delay the
onset ,of type 2 diabetes in people
at high risk for the disease.

while making the larger increase

President to put the budget, back

This is a much more responsible

debt limit into law without
addressing the fiscal problems
highlighted by the need to
increase the debt limit."

Every day, Americans pay $1
billion in interest on our national.
debt. This is about 16 cents. of
every dollar they pay in taxes. just
to make the interest pas'yment; ,not
even to pay down the debt itself.
In response to these types of sta-
tistics, last month the Blue Dogs
rolled out a plan, "It's Elementary;
The ABCs of Securing Our
Children's Future," advocating fis-
cal responsibility in the wake of
deficit spending and the growing
national debt. Part C of the plan,
