Workshop


July 23
by Tim Croft
In the alphabet soup of gov-
enment programs and acronyms,
one of the newest wrinkles is the
HUBZone.
Created .by the Small, Busi-
ness Administration -in 1997,
,.there are now 900 rural counties
classified. as HUBZones, among
them Gulf, Holmes and Washing-
ton counties in the Florida Pan-
handle.
In all, there are currently over
8,000 areas designated as HUB-
Zones.
Over the next month, a series
of workshops will, be held to. ori-
'entate area residents about the
HUBZone program.
One of those workshops, will
take place 1-4 p.m. EDT on July
23 at the Gulf/Franklin Center on
U.S. 98.
"We are going to educate peo-
ple about the program and help-
them get certified to parucipate."
said Pam Rimes. marketing direc-
IN \ tor of the HUBZone Business
Opportunity Center in Chipley.
HUBZone stands for Histori-,,
cally Underutilized Business, tar-
geting communities where there
is high unemployment and/or low
average wages.
With an unemployment rate
hovering near 6 percent and -a
median wage of $24,648, Gulf
County qualifies on both levels,,
Rimes said.
In a nutshell, the HUBZone,
program aims to stimulate eco-
nomic development and create,
jobs in such communities by pro-
viding federal contracting prefer-.
'ences to small businesses located
in a HUBZone and,, which hire
employees who live in the zone.
Businesses currently ,.in a
HUBZone, start-upbusinesses in
the zone and firms choosing to
relocate into a qualified zone are
eligible for the program.
Under the HUBZorne program.

cies, departments and prime con-

Sonny (William Milton, Jr.)
Chafin has announced his candi-


Sonny Chafin
dacy for District 4 seat on the Gulf
County Commission. He feels that
the "time is right" to run for office.
Sonny was born and raised in
-Gulf County, his parents moving
here in 1938 from Blountstown
"to make a living at the new mill."


Chafin graduated froipt Port St.
Joe High School;' George C.
Wallace Jr. College and Troy State
University. He served in the U.S.
Navy upon graduation from PSJ
High School. Sonny has been
married to the former Sandra
Baxley for 37 years. They have
three daughters and two grand-
children.
Since 'returning to Gulf
County in 1999, both he and
Saidra have been involved in the
community. Working shift work
and raising a family for many
years left little time for public ser-
vice. Chafin feels strongly that one
should give back to the commu-
nity. He feels blessed to be able to
return to Gulf County to live.
One reason Chafin is running
for a seat on the commission is to
help in any way he can to ensure
that Gulf County has smart, con-
trolled growth. When Chafin
returned to St. Joe in 1963 he
hoped to make it his home.
Because jobs were not readily
available he and Sandra moved to

Working Through Issues




EDC Board adnd Commission Meet to Discuss Future


Last week's announced .resig-
nation of Gulf County.
Economic Development Council
Director Karen Whaley was the
catalyst behind a- special called
meeting of the Board of County
Commission held Monday after-
noon at the old Gulf County
Courthouse in Wewahitchika
Members of the EDC joined '
the commissioriers in an effort to
work through problems and con-
cerns.
As board/chairman Carmen
McLemore said in his opening
remarks, "The ,way to resolve this
problem is to lay the cards-on the
table and work through this,
thing.. ,.hash through it and see
where it takes us."
C cmmissioner Billy Traylor
and McLemore called for account-
ability through results for money.
budgeted by the county to EDC.
McLemore said a requested
$12,000 increase over last year's
$45,000 budget to EDC got his.
attention haid he wanted to see.
results
Travlor told. those present
that he was asked for his opinion
Sand he had given it to several
EDC members, "In my opinion we
need to look ifor another direc-
tor,"- then he was bashed for
'expressing that opinion.
/ : Commissioner .Nathen Peters.
!Jr. stated that he was one hun--
,:dred' percent in support of the'
EDC and its director Whaley as
he commended them for the job
they do. Commissioner Jerry
Barnes echoed those remarks and
added that he understood the
county had been' told to not
expect results from EDC. efforts
for three to five years.
"'d like to see production but
we have to be realistic. It takes
time," Barnes said.
Commissioner Carl Fox said
the requested budget increase got-
his attention along with 'the
bonus Mrs. Whaley had received
this year. He agreed the matter
needed to be discussed openly to
resolve any issues.
,EDC Chairman Billy Williams.
addressed the board on behalf of
the committee stating. 'We're all
Gulf Countians and we share a.
mission of economic develop-
ment."
Williams stressed a willing-
ness by the EDC board to work
with the county, "I believe we
have an impasse that can be
resolved."
He pointed out some of the
recent successes of EDC's efforts
including his 'own business,
Beacon Hill Therapy and Wellness
Center, which is committed to
grow 80 new jobs over the next
four years and a kidney dialysis
center locating in .Gulf County


and bringing 10 jobs.
Williams acknowledged that
the EDC could do a better job in
some areas of economic develop-
ment and stressed a need for bet-,
ter communication.
Funding Needs
At the heart of this issue is
continued county funding'of the
EDC. The county funded $45,000
to the council's budget last year

Stuart Shoaf, EDC /Vice
President, told the board, "'This
series of events has'set us (EDC)

added, "the results of the past ten
to fifteen days has knocked the
legs out from under twelve
months of work by volunteers."

S: :The controversy started when
word begin to circulate through-
out the community that funding
from the county could be in jeop-
ardy if Whaley remained as direc-
,"tor and the EDC did not restruc-7
ture. As reported in last week's,
edition of. The Star, Whaley's res-
ignation came in the wake of a,
meeting between top EDC officials
and Commissioner Traylor where
these matters were discussed.
Williams emphasized to the
(board in order for the EDC to be;
effective in economic development
efforts it had to have a commit-
.ment 'at some level and degree
from the county. "Otherwise we're
paralyzed." he stated.
,Gulf County Is Hot!
"Right now beyond a shadow

Commissioners McLemore
and Traylor retorted saying the
commission has the right, to
expect accountability for funds
given to the EDC.
Shoaf countered that he was
trying to voice the feelings of a lot
of people on the EDC board. :
Indeed there is a feeling of
frustration on the part; f several-
board members 'who 'feel their
efforts have been in vain. One
major concern voiced, off the
record, by, some EDC members
was that several EDC members
might resign because of this frus-
tration.

Whaleys' Resignation Final
Commissioner Peters. called
for .the board' to write a letter of
support to Whaley requesting she
reconsider her 'resignation. The
board voted 4)'1 to support that
motion. ,Commissioner Traylor
objected.to the, motion.

board meeting Mrs. Whaley

MBA Builds 5 New Reefs


100 Reef Balls Placed to Restore Fish Habitat In Gulf


by Tim Croft '
They look like concrete wiffle
balls that have been cut in half or
really, really crunchy, Swiss
,cheese.
They are one -of the. latest
innovations in creating fish habi-
tats artificial reefs in Florida
and around the world.
They are called reefballs and
dozens were used last month to
construct five new artificial reefs
off Mexico Beach.
The first deployment was
June 12 and involved dropping
roughly 100 reef balls into 60 feet
of water at one of two sites Mexi-
co Beach has permitted for con-
structinig reefs.
"They are actually lowered to
the bottom with a crane,", said
Chip Blackburn of the Mexico
Beach Artificial Reef Association,
'a non-profit all-volunteer organi-


nation dedicated to -restoring fish
- habitat through reef construction.
Blackburn said each ball'
weighs roughly 2,000-3,000
pounds, though according to one
manufacturer they. can be' made
as small as 50, pounds.,
"The concrete is a ph bal-
anced material that encourages
marine life 'better than other
materials," Blackburn said. "Also
they are aesthetically pleasing."
: According to Tide Magazine,
North Carolina and Florida are
two of the leaders in using reef
balls.
John IDodrill of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conseriration,
Commission said reef balls, are,
also very popular internationally-.
In Tide Magazine, Henry Rolfe
of Reef Innovations in Florida
said, "Steel and other types of
structure last only a few decades,


while Reef Balls may be out there
'for 50, 100 years, maybe more."
There is a dramatic need for
new reef construction and
restoration of fish habitats.
According to a 2001 study,
coral reefs in'the world's oceans
have declined by some 27 per-
cent.
Reefs are, a lifeblood for sea
life, a kind of communal stew of
all forms of marine plants, fish
and animals. .
,,Off Mexico Beach the need is
particularly acute due to the
sandy nature of the gulfs bottom.
"Our area is basically a sand
bottom, there is not a lot bf habi-
tat for fish," Blackburn said. "All
we are trying to is restore some
natural hard bottom where it has
been (degraded).".
The new reefs have an almost
immediate ripple effect in drawing

fish.
"It's amazing how fast they
find it,"' Blackburn said, alluding
to the arrival first -of bait fish and
then larger marine creatures. -
"It's, fairly rapid how it works,
within days it starts."
And by placing the reef balls
in close proximity to one another
in the permitted site, Mexico
Beach is essentially constructing
a fish, and' fisherman's, paradise.
"The more you put them on
top of each other the more fish
'will congregate," said city admin-
istrator Paul Sabiston. "That has
been our experience.
"We are building our own
fishing areas. here for our citizens-.
and the visitors that come here,"
There is also a bottom-line
impact to restoring such intricate
eco-systems.
A study done in 1998 by two
Florida State University profes-
sors, one of economics, the other
the hospitality industry, and an
economist with the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin-
istration examined the economic
impacts of reef restoration in a
five county area from Pensacola to
Mexico Beach.
They estimated that divers
and fishermen spent the equiva-
lent of 1,684,000 days a year at
reefs in the five-county stretch of
water.
Using economic models to
determine what those individuals
would be willing to spend to fish
or dive at the reefs what they
called the use value they esti-
mated the annual economic
impact for reef systems in Bay
County at $11.72 million.
For all five counties, the total
value over the life of the reef
system, for example about 20
years, is. $656 million with an

Is Hot!
deba
Several months ago we committed .to expanding The Star's to th
web page, thinking that the wave of the future would' call foir my n
us to meet the needs of our "high tech" readers as well as A
those of us who prefer the old-fashioned paper and ink read
method.
We set out to add classified advertisements to'the website
and did just that.,Adding pictures to go with stories was also
done. Our advertisers were also placed 'on line' along with
links to the web pages of those advertisers who are also on the
internet.
As time has. passed we've received a call (or e-mail) or two
any week we were a little behind on our posting-to-the-web
chores...... "Why isn't the paper posted on the internet yet?"
Well, sometimes we get so busy draining the swamp that
we forget to keep a close check on our objectives. While talk-
ing with Rick "the web man" Lambersori about a, few issues
concerning, our web page recently he asked, "Have Tyou
checked your v isits lately? ....the figures looked pretty good
last time I looked."
Rick was right, Over the past five months we've averaged,
2,943 visits to our web site [news@starfl.com] every week.
Compare that figure to' ur weekly print distribution of
5,000 papers and it's not hard to see why these numbers
excite us. Add those numbers together (5,000 printed' distrib-.
ution. plus 2,943 web visits) ana our total weekly numbers
reach nearly 8,000.
Wow!!! That equals nearly 60% bof our present print circu-
lation. Not only are we getting a large number of visits on the
web site but they are reading much of the paper online. The
average visitor is browsing through nearly 10 web pages with
each visit.
This is not only good news for us at The Star, but it does
* appear our readers are-enjoying the "online" publication.. Our
advertisers should also be pleased because they are getting the
extra punch for their bucks also.
We will continually strive to stay on the cutting edge of this
technology as The Star updates and improves its web page. At
.the same time, anyone with ideas. recommendations, or sug-
gestions is' urged to write or e-mail...we'd love to hear from
N'ou.


'GreatCelebration.

This 4th of July celebration was an extra special event for
area residents and visitors. Prt St. Joe, Mexico Beach and
Wewahitchka had great festivities as usual,
One of the highlights of the weekend for: me w\as when the
Veterans and those attending the veterans recognition portion
S'of the Port St. Joe program Saturday evening got to the words
"under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance;-
: There was a very, obvious crescendo in volume when
pledgers got to .those words, especially from the group of vet-
erans seated together. State Representative Allan Bense also
added his support to the current wording of the Pledge, "Those
.two words (under God) need to always be in the Pledge of
Allegiance.". .
Mary Lou Cumbie led in the singing of the National Anthem
and sang "A,. Soldier's Prayer",:. which wi'as written, by Gulf
-,County's own Lenohr Clardy.
Lenohr was inspired to write thle song for the Daughters of,
'the American Revolution'in 1992. "I feel like the words are
appropriate for these times in our country," Mrs. Clardy said.;

About That House In Aspen.....


The recent Enron Corporation
cle was the, straw that set me
inking.....just exactly how is
noney being managed.....
And let me tell you, the more I
and heard the more suspi-


cious I became!

After the honeymoon and discov-
ered I was "somewhere down the
line" on the mutual funds ladder.
That was pretty much o.k. by


me. I never was too keen on hjgh
finance to start with. About the
only money I ever put much stock
in was what I had in my pocket at
any given moment. Just give me a
little chewing tobacco money from
time to time and don't boggle my
mind wi\th balance sheets, internal
audits, accounting reviews- or
detailed bookkeeping examina-
Stions.
It was a pretty good marriage. -
Then I read about WorldCom.
Someone in charge of their check-

book had "misplaced" 300 billion
dollars!
I immediately thought of the
Roy Rogers genuine replica cowboy
boots. That was twenty years ago.
I had a chance to purchase direct
from the RR Museum and Gift
Shop in Apple Valley, California, a
pair of boots "just like Roy wore"
for a mere eighty-five dollars! -
I only had to clear it with the
CEO, "Cathy, this is a deal of a life-
time. These were Roy's favorite
boots. I've been wanting a pair--",
"I'm sorry, honey, we just don't
have the money right now."
Two weeks later we take the
boys to Disney World! They're nd-
'ing Dumbo the flying elephant and
I'm weanng a Pluto hat,. holding
two melting ice-cream cones and
wondering where the money came
from for this tnp.....and just exact-
lv who the real dumbo is here....
1I remember when Jake Lewis
had ,this great coon dog and he
was going to let m have it'for next
to nothing. "Cathy I need two hun-
dred dollars! Listen, this dog will
track, trail, run arid tree! You ain't
never seen-
"I'm sorry; honey, we just'd6r't
have the extra money. There will
be other dogs." I .: ',
About a month later Jesse got
braces. I tned to, find out how
much I paid for those little pieces
of silver but it was an accounting
nightmare because we "disbursed
a reasonable deposit up front and
"sent in a small amount" each week
and it depended on how long he
wore them and the money won't:
matter anyway when you see
Jess's new smile....."
I wanted to buy a used jeep'
several years back. Eight hundred
bucks! I couldn't even get Cathy to
go look at it.
'We had a jeep one tme." she .
reasoned. (I figured she'd bring
that up.) "You could have kept that
one. Besides, we are going to make
those small changes to the house
we talked about."
I didn't- remember 'ever dis-
cussing doing anything' to the
house. Those.:chqnges" turned out
to be a whole new kitchen, a sec-
ond bathroom, a new den and a
deck you could land a 747 on! We
had ten zillion dollars to upgrade
the house-but not a measly eight
hundred for a classic jeep? I think
.that's called detailed money rman-
agement....or maybe' selected
funds distribution.....
Some of those Enron and

themselves millions upon nullions
of dollars every year! They had sec-
ond homes' in Hawaii and Palm

The View From My Front


THE HOLIDAY IS over but
the working around it' isn't
SI'm not sure what this effort
will bring forth, since, it is being
written on Monday. rather than
Thursday. I'ni riot accustomed to
writing columns on a NMonday .
S. even when I was working every
day, I never wrote a column:on a
Monday. : .'
It seems strange.
The press is running and the
radio is on, playing country
music, just. like it always is; still,
it's Monday and the thought
juice's just don't flow like they
should.
I' had a nice'holiday. I ate too
much 'arid got" over half-way.
through a book I'm .reading. I
sadly got interrupted by a funer-
al. It seems as if a good friend
dies nearly every week, 'here of
late.. ..
The friend to die this time
was Mrs. Edith Whitfield.
And, of course, she was the
mother of my friends Jean,
Barbara and Ted.


THE BOOK I AM reading is
about the expedition of
Meriwether Lewis and William
Clark and the little 3,000 .mile -
"walkabout" they took through
the newly-purchased Louisiana
Territory. It's an 'interesting,
book, written by one of the inter-
preters. of the journals' kept by
Lewis and Clafk.
Those heroes of history had
a difficult time on' their trip' into
the portion of the west no white
man had ever set foot iin during-
the first. few years of the 1800s.
"If you can imagine' a party-
taking off tb explore country of,
which they 'didn't have a map, .


rowing .a large
keelboat--upstream-for .those
3,000 Vniles, searching for some-
thing they weren't sure was even
there: a water passage across
the.country to the Pacific Ocean.
It's a good thing wve didn't.
wait,until 2002, to do the explor-
ih g. I don't think we could have
found enough men willing to row,
the boat!
THE WEATHER IS' like it
seasonally is about this time .of
ydar raining every day!l ": I
:, Eveni with all this rami, 'I
noticed in the newspaper this
morning that the river is only'
.79 ,of a foot high!


Porch..
St reminds me of "Spotball"
Barbee, and his advice to us at
this time of year: "You better
takee a bucket of water- to pour in
the river. if you plan to go fish-
ing!"' .
It's mighty low .'
The daily rains are welcome,.
though.
I sit out on our front porch, a
lot. gazing over into the park,
watching the squirrels and birds
corhe and go..
;.. I've noticed that since the
rains have started, the squirrels.
have- started staying indoors,--
or somewhere except gamboling
about the ground, 'playing
around. ..
' I ,haven't seen but one squir-
'rel in four days,' and that one
Swas in my back yard.
I did see two -large chicken
hawks after one shbwer, though.
SThey lit in my front yard to
refreh themselves in the water
puddles the rain left on my
drive.
'The two' hawks splashed


around in the water for about- 10'
minutes before they flew away.
I .sat, mesmerized, watching
those two huge, beautiful birds
bathe themselves.
ANOTHER THING I wit-
,nessed from my chair on the
front porch, was Mrs. Greg'
Johnson, 'walking" their, daugh-
.ter's dog, which is visiting them
- the dog not the daughter.
I caught something in the
corner of my eye and swerved to
see what it .was.
Here she came trotting -
trying to keep, up with' that
"walking" Dalmatian!
I watched them come. and go
on. the street, and never could
figure out who .was walking
whom '
The dog was trotting up the
street with its "walker" holding
onto the straining leash for- all
she was worth -
Smudgie saw them too, from
her perch on the top of the sofa
back, in the den. She went crazy,


barking at.that dog!
She didn't scare the
Dalmatian into a faster trot;, bLtI
she was -satisfied that she had
saved us, once again, from the
menace of an invading dog!

SEVERAL STRANGERS
have been .walking their d6gs
down the middle ,of the park,
lately. .. ".'- ,
One woman turns her large
red dog-of undetermined
breed-loose and, lets, him run
-the length of-the park. He stays
iiin .the middle, anri only stops to
examine where a squirrel has
been.
The dog isn't on a leash, and
".apparently doesn't need one. His
handler carries a small whistle
and blows on it every once in a
while arid the dog responds.
'My spare time Is pretty much
taken up by sitting on the front
porch and the patio in tie back
yard; watching the animals.

Words and music by Lenohr Clardy



Let us blend our voice in song.
Let us ring out loud and strong.

Each one has a place.
His daily -life to face.
Pray I can endure it now.




Let us blend our voice in song.
Let us ring out loud and strong.
Freedom will we gain.
Liberty will remain.
Our Banner is held up high.-




Let us blend our voice in song.
Let us ring out loud and strong.
Justice will prevail.
Patriots proudly 'hail.
With honor we now do serve.




Let us blend our voice in song.
Let us ring out loud and strong.
Sending prayers to Thee.
Till God grants victory.
Only He can tell us how!

Mexico Beach Planning to



Sell Parking Lot Property


A couple of years after pur-
chasing the property, the Mexico
Beach City Council decided Tues-
day to put a lot along U.S. 98 up
for sle.
But council members said
they will 'not sell the property,
known as the Duren property and
located at 3704 U.S. 98, for any-
thing less than originally paid
and.will insist on certain develop-
ment restrictions for a, prospective
buyer.
The city's EMS building, sits
on the property, which has pri-
marily served as a parking area
for the trucks and boat trailers of
users of the city boat ramp.
,It was originally purchased
for' roughly $472,000, including
closing costs, according to city,
administrator Paul Sabiston.
However, the property is
essentially utilized only during
peak tourist season, Sabiston
said.
And the EMS offices will be
relocated to City Hall once the
ongoing shuffling and renovation
of city office space is completed.
Councilman David Thompson
noted that in the three fiscal years
'the city has owned the property it
ha's paid in th" neighborhood- of
$500,000 maintaining the proper-
y 'for "housing boats."
o "I don't see the justification"
for keeping the property," Thomp-
son said.
Thompson also urged, arid
his fellow council members
appeared to agree, to limit the
amount of residential develop-
ment on the property.
"I'd like to see them put a
restriction on. it," Thompson said.
Sabiston replied that could be
accomplished through a contract

or deed covenant.
Councilman. Chuck Risinger
said the city should set a mini-
mum price in advertising the
sealed bid process to sell the
property.
"I think it's important to have
a beginning amount," Risinger
said. "We paid a certain amount,
we want to get our money back."
Sabiston said the property
will be advertised for sale for
roughly 20-30 days.
The advertising will cut as
wide a swath as the council
wished and Councilwoman Car-
olyn Metcalf said the word should
be spread as wide and far as pos-
sible and financially reasonable'.
"The wider we can search the
better off we'll be," she said.
Sabiston said the sale process
won't affect the current tourist
season and associated boat park-
ing.
Sabiston said the city does
have a two-year commitment from'
Arvida to use a three acre plot
north of U.S. 98 across from Mar-
quardt's Marina for truck and
boat trailer parking.
The city's cost will be to '"firm
up" the dirt load leading to the,
area and carve out a parking lot.,
Sabiston added that one pos-,
siblity would be to build a "cour-:
tesy dock" to allow boaters to put
in at the city ramp, park their
trailer and then more easily pick
up any passengers. ,
"We'll have all off-season to
work out all the details," Sabiston
said.
One resident asked the coun-
cil to stay selling the property
until the city's vision plan. sched-
uled to be completed in the fall,
was finished, particularly in light

year, we didn't have any money.
When I made ten thousand a year,.
we didn't have any money. I final-
ly got up to twenty thousand a
year and guess what? I figured it
wouldn't hurt to ask, "Cathy, how
come no matter how much I make,
we never seem to, have any
mone'"
"Cost of living. You know how
much a box of corn flakes costs
today? Have you bought the boys a
pair of shoes lately? If you would,
take us out just ,one time, you'd -
get an idea what a movie costs or
a meal at a restaurant!"
* I quit chewing. I figured every-
body ought to do his part;
Lou Dobbs on Money Line the
other night was ,talking about
options. You've got options?
I,sat Cathy down to have a
long talk about mutual funds. That
it's share 'and .share alike.
Corporate meant everybody!
United we stand....
; Bless her- heart! She :quickly
and, quietly reassured me that
everything was fine: She couldn't
' actually show it to-me but our
books and our money were o.k. I,
could trust her. After all, she had
gone to school with an accounting
whiz named A. Andersen and he-
had taught her all he knew about
bookkeeping.....,

of early comments that U.S. 98
could be an intregal part of that
vision.
In other business, the coun
cil: '
Authorized staff to prepare
applicat-'ons for state parks and
recreation grants for the 2003-
2004 fiscal year to fund continued
improvements to Pier Park and
the city pier, as well as Maryland
Ave. Park and other city parks.
The council is still seeking
suggestions for names for both
the parks now known as Munici-
pal and Maryland Avenue Parks.
Approved spending up to
$450 for the first of a new quar-
terly newsletter to property own-
ers and residents.
The idea was suggested at the
first visioning workshop and was
suggested as a way to inform citi-
zens of the visioning process and
other city activities.
*Approved a change of land
designation on the 35 acre Parker
property on 15th Street. '
The city annexed the proper-'
ty, which sits between the bridge
and Catholic Church on 15th
Street, several months ago.
The land was designated agri-
cultural, but that was a county,
designation and the, city has no
such designation.
Therefore it was changed to
residential low density, the city'b
most, restrictive land use designa-
tion, essentially requiring single-
family homes only. ;
Permitted Preble-Rish to
move forward on design work for
the proposed improvements to
Pier Park.
The: city currently has
$100,000' for the project, $75,000
in a state grant and a $25,000
match coming from'a portion of
the city's utility tax.
Improvements are to include
new restrooms.' improved parking,
and extension of the pier, which is
the tricky part because of the lack
of available data regarding the
original construction of the pier.
Bill Kennedy estimated
design time at about six weeks.
with permitting likely to require
another 30-90 days.
Heard from Kennedy that


Rep. Allan Bense, accompanied by Uncle Sam, recognizes veterans who have served their country. The
ceremony was part of the Independence on the Coast Celebration on July Fourth.

MBARA
overall investment of $5 million.
Using two other economic
models, which accounted for trav-
el .expenses and other costs, the
economists estimated that the
financial impact of reefs in the
five-county area was anywhere
from $801 million, to $1.68 billion
over the life of the reef systems.
Therefore, depending on the
"economic model used, for every
dollar spent on reef restoration,
the. financial gain, is anywhere
from $131 to $234.
"This constilutes enormous
,public benefit." said Dr. Ronr
Childs, president of MBARA.
To facilitate the M'BAR\'s
work. the city of Mexico Beach
has been able to secure several
grants.
In each of the past two 'years,
the city received grants of"
S30.000 and the city recently
received another $45,000 erant.
Sabiston said.
Seventy-five percent of that
money is federal dollars a por-
tion of taxes on fishing tackle,

earmarked for fisheries restora-
tion. Dodrill said.
Over the past 15 years the
state has received some 8300.000
through this federal program,
Dodni] said, adding that Mexico

originates from a state saltwater

SKids, Fishing & Fun!!!


by Tim Croft
When they set :out to plan the
first annual Kids Win Fishing
Tournament, .officials at St. Joe
Marina projected a turnout of


12-pounder that Raffield reeled in
for third place in that species
class.
The event was sponsored by
the 'International Game Fish


"It gives (kids) another outlet,
another sport for the kids to do
locally," Landry said. "Most of the
sports are done during the school
.year.


"This also gives them an
opportunity to be exposed to fish-
ing in an organized event."
E Kids could fish from shore, a
boat, dock, pier, canal wherever
they thought they could lure some
fish.
Each youngster's entry fee of
$15. purchased a one-year mem-
bership in IGFA's Junior Angler
program;, complete with hat, comr
memorative patch, monthly
newsletter and the like.
Gatorade, in addition .to pro-
'p- viding goody bags with drinks and
snacks, coughed up the money to
purchase rods and reels for each
entrant..
Given the larger-than-expect-
ed turnout it necessitated a last-
?-. minute run to Wal-Mart in Pana-
ma City for additional fishing
[ poles.
all Fry And most every youngster
Photo went away a winner.
The top catch in each of 24
'Bass divisions won an outfitted tackle
box.
Piggly Those who didn't win an indi-.
some vidual category had their 'name
d local placed in a raffle for assorted
te and other goodies.
"It was a :great ,format,"
ourna- Landry said. "You couldn't help
but catch something."


The winners were divided into
two groups, Small Fry for kids 10-
and-under, and Junior for those
11-16.
The winners were:

Never did they imagine that
the tournament field would end
up being 161.
"There were a lot of kids," said
four-year-old Will Ramsey.
Manna director.John Landry
said 'the turnout was beyond
expectations and 'a harbinger for
future kids' tournaments.
"It was a great turnout," said
marina director John Landry.
"The enthusiasm was neat. Every-
body had a good time. The event"
itself, from the kids' point of view,
they were enthused."
Four-year-old Clay Raffield
was one of those brimming with
enthusiasm, even a day or two
later.
Raffield took. home, the top
prize aran equipped tackle box -
in two classifications.
"It was a lot of fun," Raffield
said, his eyes wide and bright..
,"And I got two surprises: two
tackle boxes.
"I won, I. got a tackle box and
'a rod and .reel. And I caught a
really big shark."

After A While
After awhile, you learn the subtle dif-
ference!
Between holding a hand and chain-
ing a soul,
And you learn that love doesn't mean
leaning
And company doesn't mean security,
And you begin to learn that kisses
aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes
open
With the grace of a woman, not the
grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads
on today
Because tomorrow's ground is too
uncertain for plan.
And futures have a way of falling
down in midflight.
After a while, you learn that even
sunshine burns if you getl too much.
So you plant your own garden and
decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to
bring you flowers,
.And you learn that you really can
endure...
That you really are strong.
'And you really do have worth.
\ad you learn and learn ...
llhh evern goodbye you learn.

Gulf Aire Meeting
The Gulf Aire Property

monthly meeting will be held
Tuesday. July 16. at 7:30 p.m.
EST m the St. Joe Beach Fire
Station.


We had an incident recently
that stopped our hearts. Some
festivities seemed to have gotten
out of hand on the bayside of the
Sunset Coastal Grill. and a brush
fire got started. This occurred
while a large gathering of the city
was enjoying the festivities on
Thursday, July 4th. at Frank Pate
Park. Thankfully, the restaurant
was not harmed except for some
ash from the fire.
S I would like to thank the fire-
fighters and individuals .whQ
helped put out the brush rite.
' Hopefully. we will not lose the live
oak that was damaged but only
time will tell. It is my understand-
ing that members of the Dalkeith
Volunteer Fire Dept. heard the
call and as man\ members were
at the park. the. and others were
able to instantly respond. They.
started a bucket brigade until the
fire truck arnved and water hoses
could be used to completely douse
the fire. We feel that due to their
quick response the restaurant
building itself was unharmed.
Once again, thank you to all of
you who had a part in protecting
.the property and saving our
dream.

w' weekend' will both be big week-
ends," said track owner Ben Wat-
son.
"It's halfway through the
season and we are going to deter-
mine a points leader in each
class. There won't really be a
championship race, this is just to
establish the points leaders.
"Next. week we'll give them'
engraved trophies and a little
extra money."'
Not to mention the bragging
-, rights for midpoint .of the season.
And in all but a few classes
the charge for the points lead is
as tight as a miser and his money.
For example, just 29 points
separate the top four drivers in
the IMCA class, with Tom Gal-
breath, Darrell George. Todd Nei-
heiser and Doug Rogers bunched
together.
John .Melvin is just holding
off Denise Trykowski in the
Enduro class, with Tony Easter a
one winning race away from,the
lead .
Ben Dalton has a slim 18
point. lead over Teddy S*sser in
the Early Model class and Greg
Steverson has a similar lead on
Russell Welch in the Limited
Super Street. "'
Waldo McGuffevy Jr.'s lead
over Andy Hall in the Pure Stock
classification is just 12 points and
Charlie Goodwin lurks within'
striking distance.

Mini have leads that seem
assured. of surviving this week-
end's bangin' and bumpin'.
"T, 'hey all know who is leading
right now,"' Watson said. "A cou-
ple of. classes are close, so the dri-
vers know 'they need to be there
and perform well."
S The year, to date, has been
.something of a mixed bag for
North Florida Motor Speedway.

The number of cars and dri-
vers has steadily increased, with
new names and car numbers pop-
ping up nearly every weekend.

'The car count and racers are
there, but the spectators aren't
where we would like them to; be,"
Watson said.
In' fact, the fannies in the
, stands have sometimes been out,
numbered by the fannies in the
pits this year.
Part of this, Watson acknowl-
edged, is due to the up and down,
or more appropriately open and
closed, operation of the track over
the last several years.
Too many dark nights had left
-fans and drivers leery -and taking'
a wait-and-see approach to Wat-
son and his operation.
But dnvers have uniformly
'praised Watson's efforts with the
track, particularly rules that are
uniform and enforced as well as
upgrades to, 'the tech and pit
areas.
The track has been in great
shape, drivers said, and fast.
And given the dramatic
expansion of interest in auto rac-
ing currently the most attended
and watched sport in the country
Watson figures the spectators
will come as they realize there is
exciting action taking place each.
Saturday night near Wewahitch- .
ka.
"This track has had its prob-
lems in the 'past, but we ain't giv-
ing up," Watson said. "We were
hoping for more fans, but it's gone
pretty good.
"I'm happy. We ain't going to
quit. We aren't going anywhere."

cofitracts must be awarded to
HUBZone businesses.
In 2003 that number rises to
3 percent.
"And that's no matter where
the job is or what it is," Rimes'
said.
Further, according to: the
HUBZone guidelines, eligible
businesses enjoy limited competi-
tion for earmarked, contracting
funds and may receive preferen-
tial consideration for other types
of federal procurement contracts.
Businesses in Washington
County have already reaped some
of the benefits of the program.

"You'd be surprised," Rimes
said. "We've already had a busi-
ness submit six bids and secure
two contracts.
"When the government is
looking for a service or product,
they can access this data base (of
HUBZone businesses) and- find
,certified businesses."
The Panhandle HUBZone pro-
gram received a boost in May in
the form of a $150,000 grant from
the U.S. Department of Agricul-
Stre to promote businesses in the
Panhandle HULBZone.
"We are going to try to grow
emtisng businesses and do what-
ever we can to feed the local econ-
omy," Rimes said.
Which is. where the work-
shops come in.
At those workshops business
owners will learn the require-
ments and benefits of the HUB,
Zone program and get assistance
in; becoming certified to do busi-
ness with the government and
major contractors.
Business owners will also
receive help in mrnarketing their
businesses and assistance in
writing proposals and executing
'contracts. :
We uon't write the proposals
for them. but we will ,alk them
through the process." Rimes said.
For those who wish to partic-,
ipate or who want more informa-
tion, about the workshop or the
HUBZone program contact Rimes
at 638-2828, 638-2665 (fax) or e-

Senator Bob Graham-D, has
secured a provision to give states
the option to again offer. health
care coverage to legal immigrant
children and pregnant women.
The amendment to the Work,
Opportunity, and Responsibility
for Kids Act of 2002, H.R. 4737,
passed the Senate Finance
Committee by a bi-partisan vote of
12-9.
"It is in this nation's interest
to provide health care. to legal
immigrant children and 'pregnant
women," said Graham. "Right
now, -if states are not helping
these legal immigrants, they are
using the most costly; and least
effective method for, health
care-the emergency room at the
county hospital."
Since 1996, there are over
100,000 legal immigrant children
and pregnant women who have
entered Florida who would be eli-
gible for the Children's Health


Insurance Program (CHIP) and
Medicaid benefits. The state of
Florida has stepped in with a
$13.5 million limited program
that currently covers 16,000 chil-
dren. Two years ago, the Florida
Legislature capped enrollment in
the program, leaving 22,000 plus
kids on a waiting list.
The Graham amendment
would end these 'waiting .lists, giv-
ing children access to immuniza-
tions, preventaLive services, and
regular check-ups.
It would also provide
Medicaid to legal immigrant preg-
nant women, who currently have
no access to prenatal care. These
women will ultimately give birth to
citizen children who will be eligi-
ble for social services.' It is estt-
mate& that the amendment would
provide access, to health care for
176.000 people, with 144,000 of
those being legal immigrant chil-
dren.

White Roof Coating Can Mean

Lower Air Conditioning Bills


This is the time of year when
air conditioning bills can go up as
fast as the temperature outside.
All of which spells bad news for
the family or company budget-
unless your roof is beginning to.
show its age. ,
What does roof maintenance
have to do with energy usage?
Plenty, according to expei-ts. Itn
fact, white acrylic roof coatings
that are often applied to stretch
the life of a roof by 5 .to 10 years
offer an equally important benefit:

drastically lowering air condition-
ing bills for the structure below.
: How do they do this?
Tests show that on a bright,
sunny day, the surface tempera-
ture of a,white, reflective roof can
'be 40-degrees lower than the tern- '
perature on a black asphalt roof.
When the roof temperature is
cooler, there is less heat for the
asphalt to absorb and tra.sfer'to
the space below.
The acrylic component of
these roof coatings is another key.r
It has what technical types call'
"dirt pickup resistance",. meaning
that it tends to stay clean, white
and reflective, so the energy sav-
ings continue. year after year.
The actual savings on any
given home or budding will vary.
but a study conducted by the
University of Southern
Mississippi shows that it can be
substantial.
The university monitored the
energy demands of two similar
buildings, with similar insulation.
one with a black asphalt roof, the
other \vith a white 100o% acrylic
roof coating, for 'a full year.
Results show that the building
with the white acrylic roof coating
used nearly 220; less energy for
air conditioning and about 40 .
less energy for heating.
Energy savings reported by
owners of homes and buildings
. with white acrylic roof coatings
typically are in the 25'o range,
sometimes higher., As an example.
, energy consumption dropped 33%
at an Arizona bank building after
a white acrylic roof coating was
applied. "
Savings due to lower energy"
'r. costs are so substantial that own- .
ers often recover the cost of the
coating. and the labor to apply it,
in about two years.
As maintenance coatings,
white acrylic roof coatings are top
performers. They are highly
durable and protect against the
destructive, effects of the sun's
ultraviolet rays'
They also are very flexible. so
they can tolerate roof expansion
and contraction without cracking,
White acrylic roof coatings are
designed to be applied to flat or
low-sloped roofs, the kind found
on many row homes, towrihbomes.
apartment buildings, condomini-
umrns and commercial buildings.

Arvida's New Project Coordinator


Pollyanna Huie has joined
Arvida as Project Coordinator for
the WindMark Beach and Mexico
Beach communities as part of the


company's growing commitment
to Gulf County. She will work
closely with Arvida's Project
General Manager, John Hendry,
___


implementing the company's
long-range plans for this region.
For over a decade, Ms. Huie
served.in a similar capacity with
the Walt Disney, Company in
California. She recently returned
to Port St. Joe to be closer to her
family, including maternal grand-
mother, Vallene Thomas, and
. paternal grandmother, Rena Huie.
Her late grandfather, Gus Thomas
worked f6r the St. Joe paper mill
from 1938 until his retirement in
1980.
"We are extremely fortunate to
have someone with Ms. Huie's'
background right here in Port St.
Joe," says Hendry. "Furthermore;
since she and her family are lonhg-
term residents in our town, she
has a personal interest,, in insur-'
ing that Gulf County grows prop-,
erly while maintaining its natural
integrity and beauty. We believe
Ms. Huie is a perfect fit with
Arvida."

Extension Notes

Roy Lee Carter
Gulf County Extension Service


Caterpillars
During ,summer months,
caterpillars cause problems for
gardeners all over our state. As
you know, caterpillars are the lar-
val stage of butterflies and moths.
While many of the winged adults
are attractive, the damage caused'
by the larvae certainly is not.
Because caterpillars are ravenous
feeders, the', can cause consider-
Able damage in a short lime. So.
early detection and prompt
counter measures are very impor-


Ornamentals
tant.
-There are many kinds of pest
caterpillars-far too many to cover
in a single article. So, I'll talk
about a few.of the common ones
you may encounter and comment
on some basic control measures.
My information was provided in
part-, by Extension Entomologist
D. Don Short of the University of
:Flonda's Institute of Food and-
Agnricultural Science.
Sod webworms and fall army-.
worms seriously damage lawns.
And. it's not unusual for both.to
attack at the same"' time.
WVebworms are the smaller of the
two specie;. reaching a length of
only about .3/4 of an inch, com-
pared to 1-.1/2 inches for army-
worms. In 'general, both are
greenish in the young stage,and
turn brown as they mature. Their,
feeding is similar, resulting ..in
notched or, ragged leaf edges;
However. webworms tend to feed
in patches. while arms-worms
cause more scattered damage.
The orange dog caterpillar is a
Scornmmon pest on citrus trees. It's
black with white markings and
himmy.looking. Its eggs. which look
like yellow beads, are laid on the
newest plant growth. At maturity,
the orange dog becomes a swal-
lowtail butterfly.

l


If you've ever suddenly felt a
sharp, stinging sensation while
pruning a plant, you .may have
come in contact with an 10 (EYE-
oh) moth caterpillar. This caterpil-
lar is pale green, with .two
stripes-one white and one
maroon-down both sides of its
body. It has many :clumps of stiff
poisonous hairs. Touching these
is' painful to most people. In some
cased, the reaction is bad enough
to require hospitalization. The 10
moth caterpillar, which is only
one of several stinging varieties, is
found on such plants as hibiscus,
poinsettias, palms, and many oth-
ers.
* Caterpillars can be controlled
mechanically, or with: chemical
sprays. If the caterpillars are
large, a few in number, they can
be removed from plants by haiid.
Or, if egg masses are, recognized,
these can be destroyed before
they hatch. ,Chemical control.
materials includee sevin.
malathion, and bacillus
thunngiensis.
Sevin is a stomach poison
that is good to use on small cater-:
pillars that are hard to find.-.
However, sein isn't a very good-:
contact poison, so it can't be used
against caterpillars that are
already quite large.
S Malathion is. a good contact
poison. but a poor stomach pot-
'son. So it's best for use on large
caterpillars. Malathion must be
applied thoroughly, to insure con-
tact with all the caterpillars. And,':
this can sometimes be hard to do,.
especially on large shrubs and.'
trees..
Bacillus thuringiensis isn't a
chemical. It's a bactenal concen-
trate that's deadly only to caterpil-
lars. It won't harm any other
insects.
S -When applying pesticides.
you should always use caution.
and common sense. Avoid contact
with the concentrate. and stay out
of the spray drift. Read the prod-
uct label carefully. and follow all
directions exactly?

ltay. Ronnie and Michael recall
that they just looked at each other
while they were singing and knew
immediately that this was the
sound they wanted, and that
Joseph was a perfect fit.
The Booth Brothers are a lode
of talent; each voice is smooth
and nch with pitch and tone per-
fection. This is one of those
groups that is so good you just
enjoy hearing them sing, no mat-
ter what the song. This group can
S Ji


sing anywhere-from The
National Quartet Convention to
First Church. any town USA. They
are a class act. The Booth
Brothers are fresh, smooth, pro-
fessional and sincere about serv-
ing Jesus.
In 1999 they were chosen as
the SG'MA New Artist of the Year.
Their first single under the
Sonllte/Pamplin label entitled
Still Feeling Fine was released in
February 2001 to racho stations
-across the country. This is a song
written by the legendary Mosie
Lister as a sequel to his 1950's I'm
Feeling Fine. This song is also fea-
tured on the Bill Gaither video
entitled Freedom Band that was
released January 29, 2002. The
video. which was taped in March
2001 in Anderson, Indiana. was
The Booth Brothers' first Gaither

from your local Century 21 Agents.
How to Prepare Yourself for Owning a Dual Purpose Second Home
By: Preston Russ
If you are thinking about buying a second hore, you are not alone. A 1995 ;ur ,;'' by the
American Resort Development Association found that 60 percent of households surveyed feel they
have a likely chance of purchasing a recreational:property in'the next ten years, a figure that rose
30% from the survey in 1990. "
The overage age for the majority of vacation home buyers ranges from 40-50 years old.
Qualifying as the baby boomer generation, this group.of second home buyers consists of 80.5 mil-
lion people out of the U.S. population of mc..e than 260 million.
Demand for vacation homes is rising as a result of consumers' increasing desire to capitalize
on low interest rates, low unemployment rates and a strong real estate' market offering'many viable
second home options. When purchasing a second home, many baby boomers seek properties that
offer access to recreational areas as well as amenities ideal for retirement living.
Finding a fully functional dual purpose second home requires meeting a number of physical
and emotional characteristics. A trained real estate professional can help you identify your short and
long term'needs as well as a home that provides the qualities you require. When choosing the ideal
vacation/retirement community, look for services and "feaiure. which h reduce the stress of owning a
second home. Furthermore, finding a home with orne lo., li,.ng or limited stairs will be preferable
as you age and as your home evolves from a recreational home to a permanent residence.
; For example, free standing homes require a lot of upkeep;,so properties -.aho :l.jde garden-
,ing services or rubbish removal such as condomrrn;umu or gated comuri,,Is ^.h ro.,n house, are
an option worth investigating. Once .o a and, your broker have de.,rf ed a ieco,.d home ihe fol-

up an answering machine. Change the message occasionally and check the m-,e;:.-.g ofihEr.l, ae

Consider installing an alarm to protect your home wheh you are not there and .to serve you
when you live there in the future. A quality security system 'can be purchased through a reputable
company like ADT. Remove all keys hidden or ,und the property.

weekend gardener,-the grilling
enthusiast, the weather afi-
cionado or anyone in between.-
If it's weather information
you're after, digital thermometers
and weather stations are the lat-
est trend. These handy devices
incorporate wireless monitoring
technology and provide the conve-
nience of having a monitor on a
.table inside the -house with a,
weatherproof sensor outdoors, in
Sthe attic or wherever you would
like it to be. Some also function as
clocks ,with snooze alarmss _and
day/date displays. ,,, ,
The more advanced models
will give you barometric pressure
,'and humidity readings and alert
you to. weather changes and
impending storms. If yo6u want to,
monitor the temperature of your
lily pond: or swimming pool, the
weatherproof sensors also come
with a submersible waterproof
probe. If you are really' into preci-
sion, new models available this
spring will give you not only accu-
rate weather readings, but. also
will synchronize to the; official
--U.S. atomic' clock in Boulder,
Colorado.
1 Whether you need to know
when to flip tlAheburgers or when
to flip yourself to get an even tan,
a combination thermometer/
clock on the deck is handy during
warm weather. Many combination
models or sets are available, in
designs ranging from a bright
mosaic, to, garden herbs, to sea
shells. Look for sets made from
durable sculpted resin to with-
stand outdoor use and still pro-
:'vide a accurate ,time and
temperature information.
Decorative thermometers,
including, glazed ceramic or
earthy. terra cotta designs, are.
suitable for indoor or outdoor dec-
orating. A popular cerarrmiuc line
offers colorful designs with floral,
French Provincial and other gar-
' den-related themes. Other
designs .incorporate nature
'themes such as birds, frogs. and
flowers that can also'function as
birdfeeders, key ,holders, or
planters. More traditionally-styled
thermometers include brass tub
thermometers that mount' to a
window frame, metal verdigris or
grape leaf patterns, or a nautical,
porthole style thermometer.

Ribs & Fixins
For the host of a summer
backyard barbecue, the grill offers
both easy meal preparation and
appetizing entertainment for
guests. But before flihging those
pork' ribs on the 'cue, pep up your,
grilling prowess by following some
tips to ensure family and friends
find humor in your jokes and not
in your cooking.
Pork ribs are a summer
grilling staple-and the perfect
menu choice for a backyard bar-
becue. Perplexed about the differ-
ent types of pork ribs in the
supermarket? Pork ribs vary in
,size.ahd amount of meat depend-
ing on where they come from on
the hog. All pork nbs offer great
barbecue possibilities, so choose
ribs that you and your family will
enjoy. '
Sparenbs are cut from the
belly or side of the hog, and are
the least meaty variety of pork
ribs, but are big on flavor. St.
Louis-style ribs are spareribs with
the breastbone removed. Plan on
one pound per serving.
Pork back ribs-also called
babyv" back nbs because the rib
bones. cut from the blade and
center section of the lion, are
smaller than spareribs. They are
known: for the "finger meat"
between the bones. Back ribs are
favorites because they are meatier
than spareribs. Plan on one
.pound per person.
Country-style are the meati-
est of pork ribs, cut from the rib
end of the loin. Country-style ribs
are often sold in individual serv-
ings rather than full racks. These
ribs are perfect for big appetites
with enough meat to warrant the
use of a knife and fork. Plan on
one-half pound per serving.
RUB IT IN
Dry rubs are a mixture of
herbs and spices that are applied
to the meat's surface and are a
great alternative to "spice" up any
rack of ribs. Spices with bold fla-
vor like rosemary, cumin, corian-
der and cayenne work best for dry
rubs. Combining with the meat's
natural juices, rubs work as a
"dry" mannade. Rubs can be
applied just before gnlling or the
night before cooking. Keep nbs
refrigerated until ready to grll.
GET SAucy!.
Whether you prefer a sauce
that's thin, tangy and vinegar-
based or thick, smoky and

tomato-based, 'barbecue sauce is
, a classic way to season pork ribs.
For best i-esults, brush ribs gener-
ously only during the last 30 min-
utes of grilling, which' helps
prevent burning caused by sugar-
based sauces. Always prepare
extra sauce and set aside in indi-
vidual servings for those who like
to dip their ribs while eating.

Online System Speeds Up Veterans' Home Loan Processing


A new federal Internet-based
system for mortgage bankers and
other, lenders will speed up the
processing of home loans for vet-
erans through the Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA).
After the veteran's informa-
tion is entered by the financial
institution providing the loan, the
lender will receive a certificate
authenticating the veteran's eligi-
bility in seconds. Previously,
when a certificate of eligibility was
needed, a form was submitted to
VA and the certificate was mailed,
a process that can take a week or
-more.


"This leap forward in VA
automation is great news for the
veteran anxious to close a loan
and move into a new home," said
VA Under Secretary for Benefits
Daniel L. Cooper. "When interest
rates begin to change, getting loan
procedures resolved quickly can
be important to our veterans."
The new system, called
Automated Certificate of Eligibility
(ACE), should be especially bene-
ficial for active-duty members and
veterans who are using their
home loan benefit for the first
time.
Last year VA guaranteed more


than 250,000 loans valued at
$31.2 billion. Approximately 80
percent of these loans require a
certificate of eligibility. VA antici-
pates the ACE system will be able
to generate a certificate for 30 to
50 percent of these loans.
However, some loans will still
require manual processing by VA,
including veterans whose eligibil-
ity is based on National Guard or
Reserve service, those with irregu-
lar discharges and those in sev-
eral other situations.
The impact of the new system
in Florida could be substantial,
according to the Florida


P. O. Box 1007 Port St. Joe, Florida 32457 *. Phone 850-229-5100

Department of Veterans' Affairs
Executive Director Jennifer
Carroll. "In 2001, there were
24,340 homes loans guaranteed
through the VA, worth almost
$2.8 billion," she said. "I'm so
pleased that the VA is able to ful-
fill its promise to help veterans
realize the American dream of
home ownership."
Where the new electronic sys-
tem is used, the eligibility certifi-
cate will be printed from the
lender's computer and it will be
customized. beanng the date and
lender's name as well as a unique,
authorization number. For the
veteran, that represents a change
irom the traditional certificate
process in which the veteran often
kept a copy of the certificate of eli-
gibility to take to a prospective
lender.
The ACE system will not
reject any veterans for home loans
and lenders will not be involved in

deciding any eligibility issues. A
veteran uhome eligibilit- involves
special issues requiring the tradi-
tional staff review may still
request a certificate of eligibility in
advance of approaching a bank or
mortgage company with a loan
application by sending in VA Form

Supercomputer Used

in Biological Research
A new grant will help Florida
State University's biology depart-
ment step to the forefront of pro-
grams nationally offering'
undergraduate courses in an.:
emerging new area of biological
research: mathematical and comrn-
putational biology. .'
"Computational biology is
quickly becoming an essential ele-
ment in many areas of biological
and biomedical research, but few
departments around the country
have made it a major component
of their curricula." said Professor
Thomas Roberts, chair of the biol-
ogy department. "This award
places us at the forefront of this
exciting new aspect of undergrad-
uate education in the hfe sci-
ences.
FSU has received S1.6 million
from the Howard Hughes Medical
Institute to enhance its under-
graduate computational biology
curriculum over the next four
years. FSU is one of 44 research
universities across the nation that
received S80 million from HHMI
for their biology programs.

To get a picture of how impor-
tant computational research is to
biology, consider that it's at the
heart of such scientific break-
throughs as mapping the human
brain, DNA sequencing analysis.
evaluating the signature patterns
of genes and developing new,
physiological and drug treatments
for humans.
Biology Professor John Elam.
who coordinated the grant. said
the money allows FSU to hire two
professors to focus on computa-
tional biology and sqven teaching
assistants. The grant will also
help a dozen of the brightest stu-
dents-to be called -Hughes
Fellows"-spend their senior year
concentrating on advanced com-
putational course work and
research before beginning their
graduate studies.
FSU is well suited for the new
program as its School of
Computational Science and
Information Technology is the
home of the most powerful super-
computer owned by a single acad-
emic institution in the world.
