Dr. Vincent Ivers was arrested
at approximately 5:30 p.m.
Monday afternoon, July 29, after
turning himself in to .the Gulf
County Sheriffs Office. He was
charged with neglect of a disabled
person.
The charges stemmed from a
highly. publicized incident which
occurred on July 19, where an
individual in a wheelchair was left
at the Panama City Rescue.
Mission.
Gulf County Sheriff Frank
McKeithen outlined the events
uncovered thus far during this
ongoing investigation as follows:
Jay,Jensen, who is presently
in a program at the mission,
stated on the afternoon of July 19
he and several other patrons of
the mission were sitting out on
the loading dock smoking.
According to Jensen, a well-
dressed, well-spoken male came
up pushing an, individual in a
wheelchair. He recalled the sub-
ject pushing the wheelchair say-
ing something to the effect of he
was from a clinic and was drop-
ping someone off. According to
Jensen, the gentlemen was
directed toward the door of the
mission.
Harold Brown, who also is at
the mission, was acting as a


receptionist that afternoon'.
Brown advised he was going to the
Coke, machine when he noticed
the door open and saw a wheel-
chair being pushed through the
door. Brown advised as soon as he


purchased a soda he turned
around and observed a subject
sitting in a wheelchair with no one
around. Brown stated it appeared
the man could not use the right
side of his body and could not
understand English.
Brown stated the man was
taken in, bathed -and fed. He
stated the next day the man


appeared to be in some-type of
pain, so the Panama City .Police
Department was notified and. they
summoned EMS. The subject was
then transported to Bay Medical
Center.
On Thurdsay, July 25, repre-
sentatives of the GCSO immedi-
ately began an investigation into
how this person had been taken
to the Rescue Mission and who
had taken him.
Several months prior, the
GCSO had been contacted by the
Bay St. Joseph Care and Rehab
Center to assist them in identify-
ing this person and possibly find-
ing a place to put him other than
the nursing home. The GCSO con-
tacted an interpreter'from the Bay
County SO who came over and
interviewed the patient but was
unable to gather any information
other than what the nursing home
already had.
The report went on to say that
during this investigation it was
learned the nursing home had
contacted Dr. Ivers on July 19 in
regard to the patient. Dr. Ivers
made a direct admit and 'the
patient was placed in a room (not
the emergency room).

EDITORIALCOMMENTARY Hunker Down With Kes byKesleyColbert


SL WRITTEN BYEITOR Getting To The Top Step First!
WILLIE RAMSEY, EDITOR -1 .1 Getting To The Top Step First!


$1,000000 0,000 Now



That's A Lot of Zeroes.

Gulf County's taxable values have.topped $1 billion for the 2002-
2003 budget year.
This milestone event, $1.097 billion, is up over $153 million above
last year's values. It's incredible when you stop and think about it.
Remember just a few short years ago when taxing authorities were
panicking as the mill closed and values dropping was a big fear?
As we look back on those days now, the thought of passing a bil-
lion dollars in taxable values would have been one of the last to cross
our minds.
.Advertising and marketing director Ron Isbell and I were talking
about this billion dollar mark the other day and he commented, "What
will be truly interesting will be to see how long it takes to reach 82 bil-
lion."
He is probably nght on target. While it has taken a long time to
get to this billion dollar plateau the next billion could add up quickly.
You do the figuring. If Gulf County was to continue at a growth rate
of $153 million per year, in about six and one half years we'd be at the
$2 billion level
Now, of course, that's assuming we stay at the same growth level.
. .What do you reckon is the possibility of that happening?
Fact is, I don't believe very many people would be surprised to see
us grow at even a somewhat faster pace over the next several years. If
indeed this turns out to be the case we may be at two billion ahead of
what appears to be a logical time frame of 6.5 years. .WOW! !
What does all of this mean to the residents of Gullf County? Just
in case any of you haven't noticed. we're growing at a pace just under
warp speed. Most of that growth is in the form of new homes built
along or near the water front.
Obviously new and planned subdivisions are popping up all over
the place. Let us not forget the continued development of WindMark
between St. Joe Beach and DLxie Belle Curve either (up to 1500 lots
over the next 10-20 years). Yeah, you could say we're growing.
Also, with this growth will come new tax dollars to help deal with
the infrastructure, educational, recreational, and other various needs
that will accompany growth.
Another very important aspect is the creation of new jobs. These
jobs are already coming to fruition in the construction, services and
small business development segments. Many more jobs are on the
way and will materialize as growth continues to occur along Florida's
Unforgettable Coast.

Guest Columnist
As I was writing this week's editorial grandson William Howard
(Willbo) Ramsey III dropped by to pay a visit. He borrowed a pen and
decided to share a few of his thoughts with you....

He does have a \way with words, doesn't he?!


Getting To The Top Step First!

Osborne Earl 'Smith was
inducted this past Sunday into the
Baseball Hall. of Fame. I immedi-
ately thought of Buford Turlingtont.


He must be smiling like the cat
with the back door key to the
entire canary farm-and standing
ten feet tall!
Ozzir Smith played nineteen
years in the big leagues. He was
the prototype shortstop of his gen-
eration. He could "go get it" like
none who ever came before him. In
the vernacular of the game he
could "throw. some serious leather
at you". The 'Wizard of Oz" earned
his nickname ten times over!
The program listed him at five


feet. ten inches, one hundred and
fifty pounds. I think they might
have exaggerated just a bit....
Ozzie didn 't seem to notice that the
trend in professional athletes was
toward big, bigger and biggest!
Size has become an overriding
factor in picking your teams....
Coaches are looking for six feet-ten
eighth-graders to go out for the
junior high basketball squad. The
shifty, speedy halfbacks now weigh
more than Big Daddy Lipscomb
did in his prime. Major League first


basemen look like Paul Bunyan.
And the equipment manager has
to be able to bench press seven
hundred and fifty pounds!
You factor all that in and it
makes Ozzies career even more
remarkable..... and brings me back
to the aforementioped Buford :
Turllngton. ''
We called Buford "Legs" for:a a
very obvious reason-he didn't'
seem to have anyl He was the
shortest person in Miss Katie.
Owens' kindergarten class. He was
the shortest person in Miss
Carolyn Blades' first grade class.
He was the shortest person.. -
Well, you get the idea.
By the third grade we were;
constantly asking him to pick up
anything we dropped. The theory -
here was it wouldn't be as much' "
work for him. He didn't have allt:
that far to go. He never got to leave -
class for a bathroom break
because Miss'Belle couldn't see his
hand. He always had to play the:,
turkey in the Thanksgiving
pageant.....
Down at the ballfield we usual-
ly chose him last. It wasn't so
much a matter of ability.... 'it just
seemed rational to us that the
taller guys should play better. Arid
in all honesty, Legs couldn't hit
like, Ricky Gene or run the bases
like "Streak" Blasingame or catch a
ground ball like Jaekie Burns. '
But I'll tell you what he did
do-he was there everyday! He
would come early and stay late.
And he was not an automatic out!,.
He didn't have a lick of power but,
he could put the ball in play hear
'bout every at bat.
Arid he might have been the
most aggressive one of the whole
bunch. He'd roll all over you trying
to break up a double play at sec-
ond base. You'd call a third strike
on him and he'd fight you. And ifit"
got down close to suppertime and
the game was still on the line, he'd
find a way to score a run or he'd
make a great play to keep you from
scoring.

but I made myssil a, mental note
early on-when Leon and Jackie
and Nicky Joe moved on off to col-
lege or got drafted or married-I
was going to figure a way to select
Legs for my team. ,
A lot of people laughed when
he went out for the high school
football team. Coach Scott called t
him "Flea" our entire freshman
year. We spent a lot of locker room
time pondering on Whether the
name fit. Buddy was pretty sure it
didn't because, as he put it, "every
flea that I've ever carried home had
legs!" .
Legs didn't seem to mind the
jokes. And he wasn't always on the
receiving end. One day at practice
I tried to tackle David Paschall. He .
ran right over me. I didn't even
slow him down! I was lying on my
back trying to get my eyes to focus
and the ringing to stop when Legs
appeared, helping me to my feet,

"Farming" Depends on Your Definition of Production


DID YOU EVER NOTICE how
many of our authors, presidents
and other great men have origi-
nated on a farm?
Most of our presidents did,,
except for mavericks like FDR,
JFK, and GWB. They were all
born never having to give a sec-
ond thought as to where, their
next meal was coming from.
More and more of our great
men, now, are never going to
realize what it means to have to
scrounge up a living.
They say, "That's the good
life," but don't you believe it.
I have come to believe most
of our "big" men originated on a
farm. Most of them had to pick
cotton!.
Picking cotton is incentive
enough to make something of
yourself so you'll never have to
again!
The book, The Greatest
Generation, by Tom Brokaw is a
great example of what I'm saying.
Virtually every person Tom
writes about [including himself]

that I knew I had picked enough!
I could never pick 100 pounds in

so many people have done in

I picked somebody else's cot-

however. '
I never stacked peanuts,
plowed a mule, pulled corn or cut
cane. I never did any of these
other "farm" things.
My grandmother, who lived
with us in Oklahoma, kept all us
boys busy growing two gardens
each year. We knew, that if we
ate, we would-have to grow much
of the' food.
She always had a mess of
pickles drilling, corn to cut' off the
cobs for canning, potatoes to
push up under the house to keep
them, bugs to pick off the potato
vines [a job I hated] and produce
to pick.
One year, she let me plant a
row of "watermelons". That fall I
harvested more pumpkins than
we could eat.
But, there wasn't any wast-
ing food, so she put me to work
hauling cotton hulls, from the
gin next door, to bury the pump-
kins in to keep them.

I HAVE SOME HARSH mem-


ories about those gardens. They
were both about 60 by 150 feet
and lay on both sides of the'
house. Grandma was serious
about her gardens! .
We kept chickens, pigs and
had a cow. We were rural,, for
sure, except for the 100 or' so'
acres to till '
I never could get the hang of
milking, but it was my job [being .
the oldest boy] to drive the cow to
and from pasture every day.
Some days, she didn't want to go,
either. :
"All of this livestock was kept
in towp, too.
; I guess you could say, I had a
rural upbringing without the
rural.
But, then, most of the boys
in-our "'town" had the same rural
upbringing. I never thought a
thing about anything else.
Today, I think I'm reverting
to my roots if I plant two or tree
tomato-plants in buckets!

So, they decided to seek safe

Drowning in fatigue, their
. dilemma was soon made worse as
the water began-spilling over the
sides of the boat.

"'There was this guy climbing.
up the seawall saying he had a
20-month old baby and could I
help him," Womack said.
;Rick Drees arrived on the
scene just behind Womack.
-'Wheni I got there there was
this man saying, "Here take this
baby;' "Drees said.
The man was, a vacationer,
who had decided to take a little
boat ride with his wife and two
young children, aged 20 and eight
months. .
.The couple, staying at a High-
land \'iew motel, decided to take a
short jaunt in a john boat.
SBut the water began to get a
little rough, their small boat toss-
ing like the S.S' Minnow of Gilli-

they were sinking," Drees said.
'They said they'd been holler-
ing for a while."
Finally, the man struggled up
the tires to peek above the con-'
crete and try to get i somebody's
'attention.
.Womack and Drees, along
with a couple of workers from.
subcontractor C.R. Smith, hap-
pened to be in the area.
They, ripped a hole in the
mesh net and Womack tossed
down a welding lead, a hose..
"It was the closest thing to a
rope I could find," Womack said.
It worked.
"I never even saw the boat."
In quick. succession both
babes and the couple were hoist-
ed up the seawall, plenty shook
but none the worse for wear.
Search and Rescue divers
couldn't locate the boat due to the
ch'Arninrg water.

Frank Womack never heard

The first sign was 'the head

the back of the mill site during a

Womack and. Drees, part of
the crew demolishing the mill,
went back to work.
"I just made sure everything
was all right and everybody was
accounted for and I went back to
work," Drees" said with a simple
shrug.
Pulling people out of the
water is, apparently, just an
extension of the safety drill at the
mill.'
CCC Group recently celebrat-
ed an accident-free first three
months of work.
That's 12,500 man hours
"without even a first aid. box being
open," said John Griffith, co-divi-
sion manager for CCC.
As part of a celebration hon-
oring that feat Griffith said CCC
holds a similar safety celebration,

"Kes, if I had your size, I'd could
tackle a run-away freight train!"
About half way through our
sophomore year Coach Scott took
to calling him "Nails" and started
playing' him full time at corner
back. My Mother, who didn't know
the first thing about football, kept
asking me all year, "How come lit-'
tie Buford plays all the time and
you never get into a game?"
He took Patti Rankin to the
senior prom. She was a good five
inches taller than him but neither
of them seemed to notice. They
danced every dance, ate over in
the corner, by themselves, and
laughed the evening away.... There
were lots of folks who thought they
were the most handsome looking
couple in the joint! Without a
doubt, they had the best time!
Me and, Ricky Gene caught up
with Legs at the Dairy Bar a cou-
ple .of days later and got down to
the serious stuff-we wanted to
know how you kiss a girl that is a
head 'taller than you! Legs worked
on-- his chocolate shake for, a
minute for so. smiled and said.
"Guys. it has a lot to do with get-
ting to the top step first....."
Being a little smaller than the
surrounding cast. was never a
Problem, or even the slightest of
handicaps for Ozzie Smith. Or for
Buford Turlington.
'They taught us all that size is
not a determining factor..... unless
you are measuring the heart!
I have come to appreciate,
hold in awe and love both of those
guys.

Decorative Flooring Brings Business to Beach

Brenda Garth cradles Ia

appropriate gulf sunset, the strik-
ing purple and golden hues as
alluring as a runway model.
"If you could look at this
everyday why would you live in
Marietta," she said, alluding to
Marietta, Ga., the hometown she,
her husband, Jim, and their fam-
ily recently left behind.
"That's one of the reasons we
are here," she said gazing at the
photo.
After more than 30 years of
riding the Wheel of life in Marietta,
just 'outside of. Atlanta if there is
such a thing in north-central
Georgia anymore, Jim/and Bren-
da 'Garth have decided to jump
off.
After days of 'mind-numbing

mute, sleep,. commute, work, ad

decided to slow the pace a bit.

For them, the fit is as secure
as that found in the custom
Brazilian cherry vWood floor in one
of their new offices,
'The primary reason we are
here is the people we've met here
are so great," Jim Garth said. '
To which Brenda chimed in,
"The quality of life, oh my God, it's
so different. I am -so in love with
this, area.",
That is what you get in a con-
versation with the Garths. -
Call her ying to his yang or as
Brenda put it, "the traditional
(Jim) and the whimsical (Bren-
da)."
And, -in- a sense, that
describes their business as a
manufacturer of custom flooring
-that combines the latest technolo-
gy and a knowledge, of wood
species. both exotic and tradition-
al. to meet any taste and any bud-.
Set.

'There will not be anything on
the Gulf Coast like this," Jim
Garth, said. "Nothing. Zip.
"We have the whole package,
everything you need. for hardwood
floors. We want to. provide -for all
kinds of tastes.
"We sell6to contractors, we sell
to developers and we sell to mom-
and-pop homeowners. We want to,
be the answer to wood flooring for
the community."
Hardwood floors are becom-
-,ing steadily more popular. Garth
said. Consumer demand has dri-
ven the market from five percent
of all home floors to 8.5 percent in
the past year, Garth said.
From a health standpoint -
think allergies, for example to-
an economic to the. standpoint of
beauty, "hardwood floors separate
your floor from others, it's what
separates your home from other
homes," Jim Garth said,
In particular, Decorative
Flooring which is probably four
to six weeks away from being fully
operational specializes in medal-
lions .and borders.
Where specially designed bor-
ders can frame and "add value to
the floor and make a statement."
medallions, tbr a living room or
entry way, become "the focal
point" of the floor and in turn the
room, Jim Garth said.
Lasers and computer technol-
ogy allows cutLing within one live-
Lhousandth of an inch. and raises-
the, intricate inlay work of borders
and medallions into an art form,
he added. ,
And the list of wood species is
as varied and exotic sounding as
the wares at a Moroccan bazaar.
"Any design is possible." Jim
Garth said.

Wining and
Dining Sensibly
Ever notice that when you go
out to eat, all your good intentions
go out the window? Its definitely a
challenge to stay sensible when
dining out but it's not
impossible.
If you plan ahead, know what
you're up against, and prepare
yourself, you'll always be in
, control. Here are a few basic
coping strategies you can use
whenever you eat out.
First, plan ahead. Rehearse
'the strategy you will use. It could
be something as simple as
learning to say no when the'
appetizer tray gets passed
around. It might involve being the
first one in your party to order so
'you won't be swayed by the menu
selections your dining partners
make.
Set realistic standards for
yourself. The perfectionist goes-'
out to a restaurant planning to
order clear soup and a glass of tea
and that's it.' The smart diner,
chooses to allow themselves one
item they enjoy and pass up,
dessert.
Ask others to hell you. Ask
your dining companions to keep
the breadbasket at the other end
of the table. Ask your server to
bring your salad dressing on the
side, or to leave the sauce off your
broiled fish.
Here's a tip you've probably.
heard before, but it bears
repeating: Eat a light snack before
you leave the house so you won't
be ravenous, later on. -
i Also, beware of drinking,
before dining. Alcohol is often
high in calories and impairs your
judgment and resolve. Enjoy your
serving of wine, with dinner;
having food in "your stomach
Slessens the immediate impact of
the alcohol.

Card of Thanks-
Our hearts are full of love and
appreciation for the many acts of,
kindness shown to us during the,
illness 'and loss of our -beloved'
father and grandfather Mr. Angus
Young, Sr. of Chipley. May God
forever keep you in His care.

S,.?, To the People of Gimf'Counnp,;

i- '|': believe that Gulf County deserves a fair and

SI 1 impartial Judge who treats all people before the Court with

I U i I I -as Gulf County's Judge. I would be pleased to tell you about.

As your Judge I will he accessible to the community, unbiased in my judgements, and
,energetic in m\ ability to serve the increasing needs of our court system as our County continues to
gro,.. A Coun'tr Judge handles many different areas of the law and your County Judge should have
S a hands-on background in a wide variety of legal topics. Over the Nears. I have tried numerous
Civil, Family Law and Criminal cases throughout the Courts of the Florida Panhandle before both
Juries and at Bench Trial. NM\ practical experience in the law and my ability to relate to the people
of Gulf Courity make me the right choice for your County Judge.

I have a lifelong commitment to Gulf County. I grew up in Port St. Joe, attending public

generations and, frankly, I cannot imagine raising my family anywhere else. I am proud that my son
will be a part of the same school system that so well provided my foundation, and hopefully, he will
choose to raise his own family here.

My wife, Kim, and I have been active in our community since returning home to Gulf
County-long before I decided to enter politics. I have enjoyed my involvement in many local clubs
and organizations and I am particularly proud of my service as a Volunteer Fireman for the last
seven years with the Gulf Beaches Fire Department.' Despite the heavy caseload of my law practice,
I still try and make, time for a day trip in the bay looking for scallops or a weekend in the woods on
the river. If given the opportunity to serve as Gulf County's next Judge, I assure you that I will
continue to work hard for the people of Gulf County while providing strong, honest and fair ,'
leadership both behind the bench and in the community.

For these reasons, I feel that I am the best choice as your County Judge. I ask that you
honor me with your vote on Tuesday, September 10, 2002.

Apparently one man's real
beauty is another's potential
bum.
How else to interpret last
week's release by the Natural
Resource Defense Council's
annual report of Beach Bums, a
list based on, in the NRDC's eyes,
inadequate water monitoring and
dissemination to the public of
information regarding water qual-
ity and potential health threats.
Included on the list of 70
Beach Bums around the country
were four local beaches: St. Joe
Beach, the Gulf front of Cape San
Blas, Indian Lagoon and Monu-
ment Beach on St. Joe Bay.

Local health officials believe
the NRDC's inclusion of those list-
ings are a bum rap.
Start with St. Joe Beach and
Monument Beach.
Under a legislative initiative
created two years ago and called


but that doesn't mean testing of
the waters does no occur.
Andrews said.
Due to the commercial oyster-

round in the lagoon. and the
associated state oversight. "the

Florida's Healthy Beaches Pro-'
gram, the state Department of
Health provided funding to test
over 300 Florida beaches every
two weeks.
And testing at St. Joe Beach
and Monument Beach have
shown nothing but results in the.
"good" range the past two years,
said Jason Andrews of the Gulf
County Health Department's .,
Environmental Science division.
There have been no test find-
ings that would warrant either a
.closing or health advisory,
Andrews added.
Under the NRDC's adopted
guidelines, however, testing
should be done once a week and
Therefore the two local beaches
were included in the Beach Bum
category. ..
btDon't confuse us with the!
facts." county health official Doug,
Kent said with a dash of sarcasm. ;!
"We have two years of sampling
that shows no problems.
"Not only are. we sampling, ':,
but the city is sampling. I just;
don't understand."
The Florida Department of'.
Health announced this 'week that
the Healthy Beaches Program will
soon be expanded to include
weekly testing, funded with dol-
lars from the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency.
At Indian Lagoon. the county
lacks the funds under the Healthy
Beaches Program to do testing.


(Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection) would :have'
picked -up on any contamination
or problems." Andrews said.
.Which brings us to the Cape.
including St. Joseph Peninsula
State Park, recently named the
No. I beach in the country by Dr.
Stephen Leatherman, a professor
at Florinda International University
also known as "Dr. Beach."
In naming the beach the best
in America, Leatherman used a
complex formula assessing nearly
60 different factors.
Among those were water
quality and clarity ,and the pris-
tine environmental conditions of
the beach sand and waters.
However.', as with Indian
Lagoon, funding under ,the
Healthy Beaches Program is not
there to include Cape San plas.
so the lack of monitoring made it
a Beach Bumrn according to the"
NRDC. '
"'just don't see it," Kent said.
'It's like they are saying we don't,
care what the results are. we
think (contamination) could
occur."
Kent conjectured that two,
factors tripped up the county and'
put the four beaches on the Bum
list.
One was the Healthy Beaches
Program's funding for bi-weekly
testing. instead of the weekly test-
ing the NRDC deems sufficient.
The other was basic honesty.


On an EPA survey submitted
for assessing beach contamina-
tion issues around the country..
surveys which the NRDC uses in
its listing of beaches. county
health officials answered "possi-
ble" to a question about the
potential for contamination.
."I mean. anything is possi-
ble." Kent said. "They need to
have a category where they are
looking for actual nsk. The risk
here is just not high."-
Andrews said. "We could have
lied and said none. That is appar-
ently is what some areas do."
In its report the NRDC count-
ed 13,410 beach closures and
advisories in 2001, up from
11,270 the previous year.

The increase is partly due to
increased monitoring,. but is an
indication, the NRDC asserted,
that increased monitoring would
lead to more closures and warn-
ings. .. .
.The good news there is more
monitoring said Sarah Chasis.
the council's water quality direc-
tor in a televised interview. "The
bad news is the more you look for
pollution, the more you find it."
Local health officials won-
dered if the NRDC wasn't also
finding problems where they did-
n't actually exist.
More than half of the 70
Beach Bums were in Florida,
according to the NRDC report.

Dear Willie:
I know that you are a man of
integrity and heart. But, I am so
saddened that the advertisement.
submitted by a few in our town
was allowed to go to print. These
individuals do not speak for me,
or for the majority, who are kind,
intelligent beings. I believe that
such allegations should be inves-
tigated prior to printing due to lia-
bility and ethics. I almost con-
tacted you prior to the newspaper
coming out to request that one of
your journalists come to our city
administration to do just that,
because it might put to rest all of
the lies that are seemingly unable
to be dispelled any other way.-
I am frankly embarrassed by
the witch hunt that is currently
taking place with regard to the
"upcoming election in November
for Mayor. Whether or hot, you
stand behind what Mayor
Kingsland 'has. or. hasn't done-
whether the new candidates agree
or disagree with her is not the
issue. Ethics and honesty is. If a
candidate cannot stand 'on
his/her own platform. 'but must
resort to these tactics, it is up. to
the community to set the' record

At the council meetings these
individuals come prepared to
hang her, and each time through
her intelligent articulation and
keen retention for facts she dis-
pels every allegation.
However, it does not stop
them. After meetings they stand
outside and wait for anyone who
may lend them an ear and they
slander her. No one should be"
able to do this. They even attack
her personal 'life, saying things
about her that have no justifica-
tion.
Regarding our Vision
,Plan-What an opportunity to
have a "physical" business' plan ,
for a town that is exploding,
instead of making short-sighted
decisions without any projection
or control. You need to ask the
Mayor regarding the funding-,
there is a strong commitment to
,finance the plan's projects
through the use of creative fund-
ing, i.e. grants. etc. I feel as our
only local communication it is
your responsibility to cover' this
story in depth and allow our
Mayor to respond.
In closi n -if we are, quoting

Chapter 104, designed to draw

Whether cutting grass or hoeing the
garden, I was taught to "do it right." At .
age 11 I got my first paying job, a paper route. There I learned
more about working hard, but I also learned about responsibility.
Not only did I have to deliver the papers on time and to the correct
place, I was responsible for collecting each week. All this had to be
done regardless of the weather, baseball or anything else that might
have been more interesting.
In junior high school I worked at a gas station. In high school I
worked in a small cafe' before and after school, waiting tables,
cooking, mopping floors, washing dishes-whatever I was. told to do.
In each of those jobs I learned the importance of service.
11 was my privilege to work my way through college and law
school. For three summers I worked in a steel mill and a fourth at a
chemical plant. Those were hot, dirty jobs but I saved enough each
summer to pay for another year of school. There were other jobs
during those years, including a summer on a sod farm, one school
year in the college" post office and another in the Sears warehouse.
Every job I have ever done taught me the value, of hard work,
service, and responsibility.
During my 32 years in Gulf County as a lawyer in private prac-
tice, as an Assistant Public Defender, as an Assistant State Attorney
and as your County Judge, I have put those values to use. I want to
continue serving as your County Judge.

On September 10, vote to Keep Fred Witten County
Judge.

voter can participate regardless of party affiliation.

He's Got It All Wrong
This is Nellie, the lady men-
tioned in The Star last week, in
regards to my moving. Mexico
Beach has been my home for 37
happy years.
I am not leaving because of
the large water bills. It was
uncalled for that Bill Hodgson put
this in the paper.
I don't know him, never met
him and yet from someone he
talked to he used my name with-
out permis-sion.
I told him I expected a retrac-
tion immediately. I am leaving
sadly because of my age, illness
also-my, granddaughter is in a
wheelchair with M.S. and son-in-
law isn't a well man. I need to be
,with my family. All my dear
friends know why I'm leaving and
know, that this was all uncalled
for.
God bless all in Mexico
Beach. I've had a., beautiful' life
with all of you.
-Nellie

Not One of "Many Others"
Bill Hodgson and "Many

Others" are the very reason that
good, intelligent, caring people do
not want to run for office. I hope
his lies do not disuade our pre-
sent Council from running for re-
election, because I'will not forget.
I know whom I will support.

Matt Peevy Qualifies

for Ponca City Nationals


Amateur Nanonal Championships
Matt Peevy of Port St. Joe
raced his first Supercross race
ever and finished with an impres-
sive 5th place overall. Motocross
racers from all over the southeast
competed at Monster Mountain
MX Park in Tallassee, Alabama,
and battled for a top 12 spot to be
invited to the Ponca City National
Championships in Ponca City,
Oklahomea.
"It.was exciting to see Matt
finish 5th in the Supercross event
on Saturday night especially with
this being his first Supercross
race, said Matt's mom, Diane. I
didn't care if he finished last
place, but to see him second place
coming out of the gate and to race
with the smoothness he had, I
was so glad for him."
"Supercross is named
Supercross for a reason. It'is very
hard to do because it .is all timing.
and concentration. When you fin-
ish .one jump, there is another
and then another and then a
turn, and then a whoop section,
etc. You have to be looking way
ahead and be planning several
things at once or you are in trou-
ble. The track is also narrow;.
therefore you have to set up your
passing and jumping. The worst
fear'is getting jumped on by a 300
pound -bike not, counting the
rider," said Matt."',
SOh Sunday, it was all
Motocross qualifiers out on the'
"Monster", as it is called. The
Monster is a large national style
Motocross track that is one of the
toughest anywhere in the U.S.
"Matt has 1had some of his worst
crashes ever on this track, but he
went out there and rode his heart
out and finished 10th overall

Clifton Guthrie, owner of CCC

award: "
Safety is paramount, even
more so when you are bringing

Griffith said.
Each CCC employee gets 25

Take Advantage of Preferred Securities


By: Andy Wilkinson Financial
Advsor
Investors seeking to take
advantage of the stock market
who still wish to receive a steady
income could benefit from explor-
ing preferred securities. This
hybrid of stocks and bonds is a
great solution for some investors
because it can be bought and sold
like a stock, -and it provides a
fixed payment like a bond.
Like common stocks, pre-
ferred securities represent equity
in a company and are often listed
on the New York Stock Exchange,
making it easy for investors to
monitor and sell. Preferreds also
share many of the characteristics
of bonds. Most -pay a relatively
high quarterly r~te that is fixed at
the time of issue. They are rated
by the two major credit-rating
agencies, Moody's Investors
Service, and Standard & Poor's
Corporation, which rate the over-
all ability of a corporation to pay
their obligations. (These ratings
are subject to change).
Preferreds are interest-rate
sensitive and often have call fea-
tures, which allow the issuer to
redeem the stock by paying the
investor a stated premium price
for the shares on.a specified date.
If the interest rates decline, the
price may rise, in which case the
issuer may ,opt' to redeem the
securities and issue new ones at a
lower rate. However, if interest
rates remain the same, the com-.
pany is not likely to call the pre-
ferred securities.
The reason they are called
preferred is that the payments
made on these securities have
preference over, or are senior to,
common stocks. In other words,.
payments must be made to pre-
ferred securities holders before
dividends can be paid to common
stock owners. Cumulative pre-
ferred securities require all
missed payments to be made up
before any common dividends are
paid. In addition, common stock
dividends must be suspended
before any preferred securities
can be suspended. However, pre-
ferred securities are considered
subordinate to bonds; also, they
do inot generally come with voting
rights. .
Preferred securities were once
left to the institutional investor
(who qualified for big tax breaks
because of the Dividend Received
Deduction) to enjoy but are now
readily available'. These newer
types of preferred securities gen-


erally provide higher payments,
but do not qualify for the Dividend
Received Deduction.
Some of the newer preferred
securities that are of particular
Interest to individual investors
include:
Monthly Income Preferred
Securities .(MIPS): MIPS are issued.
by a special purpose company
that is created for the sole pur-
pose of issuing preferred securi-
ties and lending the proceeds .
back to the parent company.
MIPS' are structured to make
monthly payments.
Quarterly Income Preferred
Securities (QUIPS): QUIPS are
structured the same as MIPS, but
they make payments quarterly
rather than ntofnthly.
Monthly Income Debt
Securities (MIDS): These subordi-
nated debentures are issued
directly to investors by the par-
ent/operating company, and make
monthly payments.
Quarterly Income Debt
Securities (QUIDS): These are also
subordinated debentures that are
issued directly to investors by the
parent/operating :company and
make quarterly payments.
MIPS-, QUIPS,, MIDS, and
QUIDS may have distinctive tax
considerations that you should
discuss with your .personal tax'
advisor. ,
American Depository Shares
(ADS): ADS are a type of tradi-
tional preferred security. These
.securities are issued by interna-
tional corporations,.mostly banks,
that are trying to access the U.S.
capital markets. There is no cur-
rency conversion risk because
they are issued in U.S dollars.
However, these securities are sub-
ject to other risks associated with
foreign inmveiung. such as. social

To the Community

of Port St. Joe

& Gulf County:




Those of us who know Dr. Ivers best his friends and
coworkers at Gulf Pines Hospital want to express to you
our unwavering support for him and his family.


We, as do his patients, know Dr. Ivers to be both a com-
passionate man and a caring doctor. His dedication to his
,patients, his staff, coworkers and his community serve
daily as an example for us all.


While it takes years to learn the skills needed to be a phy-
sician and many more years to become one of the best in
the field of family practice, it takes a lifetime to develop
the strong character we admire in Dr. Ivers.


We want this community to know that we will do every-
thing within our power and ask for more help from a
higher power to help him rise above the crisis this has
created for the facilities involved and for this community.

We simply ask you for your support and prayers on his

school-age children, or one in
four, have some form of, vision
problem that may prevent them
from succeeding in school.
Early detection of vision
problems is critical, considering
that 80 percent of all learning is
achieved visually in the early
years. Many kids who suffer from
vision problems are frequently
misdiagnosed with learning
disabilities.
To make sure kids are able to
utilize their most important
learning tool their eyes the
American Optometric Association
sAOA) recommends that children
should be examined by a doctor of
optometry or an ophthalmologist
before entering kindergarten, and
every two years through the age of.
18 to detect potential problems.
Though many schools offer,
vision screenings, they are, not a
substitute for a comprehensive,
eye exam. In a recent address to
the AOA, President Jimmy Carter
spoke out on. the necessity ofl
comprehensive eye exams for all"
preschool children, noting that
his own\ grandchildren were not
diagnosed with vision, problems
until second grade.
Most common eye problems
-such as nearsightedness,
farsightedness, amblyopia (lazy
eye) and astigmatism can be
successfully treated when caught
early.
As a parent, be alert for
symptoms that indicate poor
vision. If your child uses a finger
to maintain their place when
reading, .holds reading materials
close to their face, tends to rub
their eyes frequently or complains
of headaches, their vision may.
need correction.
The American Optometric
Association reports m that
approximately. 58.8 million
children in the United States wear
corrective lenses. Arid these days,
with all the frame choices\
'available, wearing glasses is now
considered cool!
Visiting an' optical center
where kids are able to try on a
broad assortment of frames allows.
kids to choose glasses they like
and will enjoy wearing.

Goodbye Forever
George Thomas "GT" Morgan
Though we use it many times
in a day, goodbye is always a hard
word to say. We pass on the street
and we always speak, but in a
flash we are back on our feet.
Never thought twice about saying
goodbye, but now all we do is lay
here and cry. We just heard the
news about a day ago, that we
would never again say hello. They
said it was you they found lying
there, lifeless as could be without
a breath of air. They said you lost
control and there was nothing you
could do, just pray .to' God. Don't
worry, he forgave you. They said it
was instant, you left in a flash, as
soon as your truck came to a
crash. It was hard to believe but
they said it was true. We couldn't
believe it, it really was you. Now it
is time to again say goodbye. But
now we do it as we all hug and
cry. We will gather together in a
day or two, to say goodbye forever
to you. ;All of your family and
friends will be'there. And all our
past memories of you we will
share. Friends of the present and
friends from the' past, we, will
stand arm in arm as we bid you
our last. "Goodbye forever, GT' we
will say. Then we will all bow our
heads and pray, asking the good
Lord for peace and patience, too,
as we all say goodbye forever to
you.
We all love you and will miss
you very much. .

"Master Gardeners" Blooming in Gulf County


Gulf County Extension Agent Roy Lee Carter receives wind
chimes of appreciation from club president Zebe Schmitt.


most of the' expertise will come
from the University of Florida."
The teaching is focused on
horticulture, but an overall green'


mindset is a natural offshoot. .
"I think the advantage (of the
program) is making yourself more
aware of the environment." Bren-


ner.
Another key component to the
program is volunteerism.
While, the master gardener
program bestows no official title
on those who complete the
course, or make them an expert.
on all things horticulture, it does
create a resource pool for the
community. ,
Individuals completing the
course, commit to donate 50 vol-
unteer hours to the Extension
Service.
They become, essentially,
fonts of information for fnon-com-
mercial horticulture questions or
issues in the community.
"That's the general intent,"'
Carter said. "I have had a lot of
requests for this program. It will
be nice to have people in place to
answer horticulture-type ques-'
tions.
'"We would not, only have so:
much expertise for our own gar-
dens, but also for the community'
'as a whole."
Which is one aspect of the
program that juices Brenner.
"It helps you help yourself
and help your neighbors." Bren-
' ner said. "I love having the knowl-
edge and being a part of it. There


is so much to learn. I love it."
Zebe Schmitt, president of the
Garden Club, was equally pleased
to bring the program to the coun-
ty. .'
"It was, very difficult to get
this program herer"she said. "But
it's very exciting:' We educate
them and they give back to 'the,
community. I'rn very excited."
The local program will begin
Sept. 25 and meet from 9 a.m.
until 1 p.m. ,each Wednesday
through Nov. 12.
The program will break until
Feb. 5, 2003 and continue each
WedInesday through March 9.'
There are 20 plots available in
the program, with ,,15 earmarked
for members of the.Garden Club
of Port St. Joe.
The Garden Club received an
education grant from the Jessie
Ball du Pont Foundation to defray,
half the cost of enrollment for
Garden Club members.
The hope is to plant the seed
in the commuruty and watch the
program grow.
Deadline for,. registration 'is
Aug. 26. ,
For more information or to
register contact the county Exten-
sion Office at 639-3200.


Angela White (left) was recognized as the recipient of the
"President's Award" by President Zebe Schmitt for her untiring ser-
vice to the club.


by Tim Croft
Turning green thumbs into
green minds is the idea behind a
program to be introduced next
month through the county Exten-
sion Service.
.The "master gardner" pro-
gram is an intensive program that
aims to propogate knowledge of
plants, grasses. insects and the
environment while giving pur-
'chase to a volunteer force.
ambassadors of flora. if you will.
"It's very intensive." said Liz
Brenner. a member of the Garden
Club of Port St. Joe.
Brenner ongina]ly took the
course in New Jersey and then
again in Bay County,. which has
had the program for about seven
years, after moavng to the area.
"It's a very interesting." she
continued. "The program will be
beneficial. I'm very excited about
it being offered here."
The program first blossomed
at the University- of--Virgima-and-
spread like kudzu across the
country.'
S; county Extension Agent Roy.'
Lee Cartet said roughly" half of'
Florida's 67 counties have a mas-
ter gardener program.
'It has mushroomed all.over


the country." Brenner said. It's a
big thing"
There are two central facets to
the program. One is the breadth
and depth of the curriculum.
This is not just Horticulture
101.
Topics can include everything
from basic plant science to the;
safe use of pesticides to environ-
mental landscape management.
Dealing with pests. of the
four-legged. crawling and fling
sort. and handling yard waste are
also part of a bounty of knowledge
students will have the opportune
ty to soak up.

the whole time or just part of the

ease in contacting them to dis--
cuss your child's progress.
Third, to make you aware of
the school's rules and regulations
to help' you and the school
develop a positive and safe learn-
ing environment.
And last but not least, the
faculty and staff at Port St. Joe
High School would like to get to
know you. This is a great comma- .-
: nity, and a spirit of cooperation
and care among parents, stu-
dents, faculty and 'staff, and the
business community will make
sure that all students succeed at
Port St. Joe High School. .
What activities, are planed'
for Celebration of Educationi?
Everyone will meet in the audito-
rium for a morning packed xvith
fun and entertainment. Skits will
be presented by the' Student,
Government. This will be an
entertaining way to learn the'
rules and regulations of the
school. "Wacky" intramural
even t \will be held in which teams
from' each grade level will com-
pete. This is. great for establishing
school spint and a bond between
the students.
Competition runs high during
these events and usually someone
gets creamed (literally) in the end.
Lunch will be provided for both
parents and students. so if possi-
ble, plan to stay and eat a hot dog
lunch with your child. 'After'
-lunch, students will attend their'
classes.

School Bus
Safety Tips
As students enjoy the last
waning days of summer vacation
all drivers are reminded to be ori
the lookout for the familiar yellow-
school bus as it loads and,
unloads students beginning on
August 7. .
According to* the National
Highvway Traffic Safety Adrrun-
istration. over 90 million
motonsts illegally pass stopped
school buses each year. Illegal
passing of stopped school buses is
a major cause of school bus-'
related fatalities.
Most school bus. fatalities
occur when children are outside
the bus, and 750 of these
fatalities involve children under
the age of nine.
Make sure your children
know and follow these rules: Be
on time. Never run to or from the
'bus. Stand back from the curb.
Don't push or shove. Stay in your
seat. Don't yell or shout.
Always obey the driver. Wait
for the driver's signal before
crossing. Always cross at least 10
feet in front of the bus. Never
crawl under a school bus.
Parents are urged to meet the

WES is particularly proud of
our food service personnel.
Lunchroom Manager Ms. Becky
Hamm and her ever-cheerful
entourage ,work hard to provide
our students and faculty with
delicious, nutritious meals, Lunch
menus are featured in our weekly
newsletter The Warrior Weekly.
The full-pay breakfast price is 75
cents. The full-pay lunch price is
$1.75. Reduced-pay breakfast
and lunch are 30 cents and 40
cents -respectively. Free/reduced
meal applications are available in
our office .
For those who prefer to bring


..,v .. .~" n" n <


a lunch from home, here are a few
safety reminders:
Make sure your hands, food
preparation surfaces and utensils
are clean. Hot, soapy water gets
rid of bacteria. Teach children to
wash their hands before eating.
Be sure to wash fruits and
vegetables before packing them;
Use an insulated bottle to
keep hot foods hot. Fill the bottle
with boiling water and let it stand
for a few minutes.. Empty the
bottle and then fill it with, piping
hot food. Keep the bottle closed
until lunchtime.
Cold foods should stay cold,
so invest in a freezer gel pack and
an insulated lunch box. Freezer
gel packs will keep foods cold
until 'lunchtime, but are not


recommended for all-day storage.
Any .perishable food,. such as
meat, poultry or egg sandwiches, -
should be discarded if not eaten
at lunch.
It's especially important to
include a cold source if a paper
bag is used to carry lunch. A
freezer gel pack or a frozen
sandwich works well. Because-
paper bags tend to become soggy
or leak as cold food thaws, be sure
to use an extra paper bag to.
create a double layer. Double-
bagging will also 'help insulate
food better*.
Always have supply of shelf-
stable foods on hand at home for
easy packing. These include fresh
fruits and vegetables, crackers.
peanut butter, packaged pudding,

and canned fruits or meats.
SFreeze single-sized juice
packs overnight and place the
frozen. drink -in the lunch. The
juice will thaw by lunchtime. but
Swill still be cold. the frozen drink
will also; help,keep the rest of the
lunch cold.
If sandwiches are made the
night before. keep them in the
refrigerator until packing up in
the morning.

Going Back to School

with Confidence
A Few Tips for Easing First-day Anxiety
For kids (and for some
parents) the summer vacation
months. fly by and all too soon it's
time to head, back to school. As
fall approaches, so does back-to-
school stress. Kids worry about
everything from their new teacher
to missing the bus to forgetting
their lunch.
The worrying can be
especially bad for kids starting
school for the first time, or those
moving on -to middle school or
high school.
Parents can help make the
transition back to school a fun
and exciting experience. Share .
story from your school days with
your child. Did you go to school
one day in second grade without
your homework? Did you get
teased in middle school? Did you
get lost the first day of high
school? Sharing these stories will
let your child know that you have
been through what they're
experiencing and that you lived to
joke about it.
Here are a few additional tips,
for making the switch from
summer' to school go more
smoothly. While these suggest-
ions are especially helpful for
dealing with younger kids, some
of them will be useful with older
kids as, well.
A week before the first day of
school, have your kids start going
to bed at their' school-night
bedtime instead of the
summertim'bedtime. Establish a"
routine that includes taking a
bath or shower, brushing teeth
and relaxing with .a book. Set an
alarm clock for the correct wake-
up time. This will help with fears
of not waking up and missing the
school bus. To help establish
those important bedtime routines,
give your children something to
look forward to.
Make, shopping for school
supplies a family affair. :Most

Send your kids off to school this fall
with some. cookies that will surely
"draw" attention from their friends and
teachers. These pencil-shaped cookies
are almost too cute to eat: however,
these crisp, almond-flavored "Number
2 pencils" are.too tasty to "write off."
"Too many people limit their use of
biscuit and baking mix to only making
biscuits, muffins or pancakes, but there
:are many other uses for this convenient
product," says Marrgi Walstrom, culi-
nary professional for Pioneer Brand.
"Biscuit and baking mix makes this
cookie dough simple to stir together."
The' cookies are easy to shape. too:
Either roll the colored dough into pen-
cils with your fingers..or pack it into an
empty butter box. Once the box of
dough is chilled, it is sliced and
trimmed to make individual pencil-
shaped cookies: A miniature chocolate
chip at the end of each cookie is the
lead. Just follow the simple instructions
given by, the culinary professionals at
Pioneer Brand.
Back-to-School Pencil Cookies
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened (do not
use margarine; reserve butter box)
I large egg
1/4 teaspoon'almond extract
.2 1/4. cups Pioneer Buttermilk.
Biscuit & Baking Mix
I drop red food coloring
1/2 teaspoon yellow food coloring
About 1/2 cup miniature, chocolate chips
In large mixer bowl, beat sugar and but-
ter until creamy. Add egg and almond.
extract: beat until light and fluffy. Add
biscuit and baking mix, beating on low
speed to combine.'Remove two 1/4-cup
portions of the dough. Stir, red food color-
ing into one 1/4-cup portion to make pink
dough for the pencil erasers; reserve other
1/4-cup portion to make oh.irperd l ip, of
pencils. Add yellow food coloring to
renciinirni dough to .make the yellow
lc ri;_h F the pencils. Shape cookies using
Sone of the options below. Place' pencils
about 1 inch apart on baking sheet coated
with cooking spray. Place a chocolate
chip at.the end of each white dough point.

'minutes or until cookies just, begin to


You'll be hard-pressed to eat only one
of these Number 2 pencils. They'll
make you "one sharp cookie."

brown. Cool on pan before removing to
wire rack. Makes 5 to 6 dozen pencil-
shaped cookies.
Sliced Pencil Option: Press white dough
firmly and'evenly in bottom of empty but-
ter box (coated with cooking spray).
Repeat with yellow dough and finally
pink dough. Close box. Chill for at least 2'
hours or until dough is very firm. Careful-
ly remove box from around dough. Using
a long, thin-bladed knife, slice dough
lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices. Cut each
slice into 6 "pencils." Trim white dough
on each pencil to create a point.
Rolled Pencil Option: Wrap each dough
(white. yellow and pink) in plastic wrap:'
chill until firm. Use measuring spoons to
measure dough for each cookie: 1 tea-
spoon yellow dotigh. rolled, with fingers
to make 4 1/2-inch-long length of pencil;
1/8 teaspoon white dough. shaped to'
make sharpened point: and 1/8 teaspoon
pink doigh, rolled to make eraser.
Helpful Tip: When measuring biscuit.'
and baking mix, gently spoon mix into,.
nested (dry). measuring cup/s. Using a'
metal spatula or straight-edged knife,
. level off the top. .

online at www.act.org.
ACT scores are accepted by
virtually all. U.S. colleges' and
univers ili-es. The ACT is not an


achievement test that measures
students on what they learned in
high school. Because it is
curriculum-based, colleges use
ACT scores for more .than
admissions decisions. They use
scores to place freshmen into
'classes that the students are
academically prepared to handle.
For admissions decisions, colleges
use ACT scores along with a
student's high school grade point
average, college prep courses
taken, extracurricular activities
and other information. The test
fee is $28 in Florida.
ACT's website (www.act.org),
lias helpful information', sample'

,Bridget Parker and Cameron


Horne take State 4-H Honors

Duo Qualified for Regional Championship in Tenn.


* by Tim Croft .
For any of those big city folks
who think that small counties
such as Gulf can't compete, Brid-
get Parker and Cameron Horne
have just one word.
Horsefeathers.
Parker and Horne recently
traveled to Tampa to compete in
'he state 4-H Club champi-
aships for horsemanship.
Both competed .in the
speed/Western class.
Competing against dozens of
pedigreed horses and owners with
deep saddlebags, Parker and
Horne more than held their reins,
placing in the top 10 in three
events. .


That qualified both for the
regional championships to be
held in Memphis, Tenn., .later this
month.
Parker, a 15-yearold from
Wewahitchka, and her horse,
Buck, corraled first place in
stakes racing, a kind of barrel'
race with different obstacles and
distances.
Horse and rider start from a
designated spot, circle the stakes
and return to the starting spot,
with points, style points if you
will, deleted for stakes knocked
over or missed.
Parker and Buck, it turned
out, had a. saddle-full of speed
and style.
"They read off the third- and


second-place riders and I was
wondering where my name was,"
Parker said.
'"Then they called me for first
place and I said, 'Oh, my God.' I
was just hoping to do my best and
see what happens."
Horne, also a 15-year-old
from Wewahitchka, and his horse
Sunshine, produced plenty of
heat, finishing second in the key-
hole race and eighth in the stakes
race.
"I was surprised," Horne said
of his stakes race finish. "I
thought I had a fast time."
It was an impressive showing
for the Gulf County 4-H Club,
particularly given the pedigree of
some of the more hoi poloi compe-


Cameron Horne and Sunshine (left) saddle up next to Bridget Parker and Buck topose for a photo


tition .
As :County extension agent
Roy Lee Carter said, "Some of
those horses were Cadillacs. I
think we had the only horses
there with just one-word names."
"I thought going in II we could
place in the top 10 in any event I'd -
be satisfied."
Parker and Home handily
exceeded that goal, the product,
Carter said, of plenty of hard work,
preparing themselves and their
horses for the rigors of top corn-'
petition.

said. "We had a;horse camp the

The, only downside :is that due
to the expense, neither Parker or
Horne will be able to make the


trip to Memphis for the regional
competition, which is a stepping
stone to nationals.
But the two teenagers proved
a point: anybody believing kids '
from a rural community can't
compete in the center ring are
' jtst spouting, well, horse
manure.
