Over 2,100 Gulf and Mexico Beach Students to Start Classes


by Tim Croft
The traffic snaking around
the intersection of Long. and
Madison, the canary yellow
buses,, the backpacks and hur-
ried, sometimes anxious, looks.
They were telltale signs that
the school year has begun.
The 2002-2003 school year
started Wednesday morning as
some 2,100 kids invaded campus-
es around the county.
"I'm excited," said Superin-
tendent Jerry Kelley. "I'm looking
forward to a great year." f a
As T-shirts worn by some fac-
ulty at Port St. Joe High School
proclaimed, 'it was time to "cele-
brate" and "educate."
Middle school students in
Wewahitchka arrived to a "hnew"
facility physically separate from.
the high school, one of the major
changes for the school year.
There are also new principals,
at the two schools, with Terry Lin-
ton taking the reins of the high
school and Pam Lister the middle
school.
Work on the roof at Port St.
Joe. High School should,, begin
soon.
District officials are encour-
aged with early enrollment num-
bers.,
Though the district projected
2,100 kids in their forecasts to
the state last 'ear, dunng the
summer indications were the
number was slipping a bit. caus-
ing concern in a district which
had seeri an erosion Ui, enroll-
- ment. and 'with--rt adJ' .uvz"ior"-"
state dollars over the past few
years.
However, new students enter-
ing the district were evidenced at
nearly every school, Kelley said. ,
New arnvals to the area ahd
the flight of students out ,of
Franklin County had district. offi-
cials cautiotisly optimistic that
the student-body could add some
sinew this year.
For instance, at Port St. Joe
High School early projections
were for about 370 students, but
as opening day dawned that nurm-
be. could nurse to or exceed 400.


The unanswerable was how,
many 'of the students in the dis-'
trict last year would return.
"We'll just have to see who all
shows up," said sLxth-grade
teacher Judy Campbell at Port St.
Joe Middle School.
District officials will, have a
betteri-feel for the exact numbers
in the next couple of v.eeks.
"We just don't know at this
point," Kelley said.

Second Chance

School Gives

Another Option
The first day of school in Gulf
County will bring with it a second
chance. for certain, students ,
unable to function with success
in a zero-tolerance environment.
Gulf Academy. a second-
chance option for unruly, disrup-
tive students or those facing
potential' expulsion, will be the
newest district campus. ,- ,
The School Board gave final
approval for the concept last
week, with the old Adult School
building to be used for the acade-

'This will be a good tool for
administration and a good tool for
teachers to provide a method of
control." said Jerr' Kelley. Super-
intendent of Gulf County Schools.
'Wpen lads understand that

about it. I think it will really help
safety, the school environment.
the whole nine yards."
It could be argued that :the
roots for Gulf Academy .were
planted with zero-tolerance. poli-
cies .concerning drugs, weapons
and fighting. and other behavior
issues, that have been imple-
mented around the state in recent
years, including Gulf County. ,
As such policies have blos-'
somed, so 'have the number of

boards and, in turn, expulsions.

ber of expulsions has exploded.

#1 Warehouse Comes


Tmbling Down Friday


by iim Croft
The old gal put up quite a
fight.


Even a couple of fisherman
floating in the bay nearby took a
powder as the burnished brick
%warehouse known to paper mill
workers as warehouse No. 1 came
into the crosshairs of two giant
shearing machines last week.
It ,\as quite a battle. luring a,
small group of hard-hatted work-
ers to the back of the mill proper-
ty to watch the blow-by-blow, por
in this case, slice-by-slice.
The building, which went up
in the late 1930s as part of the
original mill facility, withstood the
onslaught valiantly, but modern
machinery ultimately wore .it
down.
'"(No. 1)'-was pretty .tough,"
said Bill Reilly, who has worked at
the mill for more. than 40 years.
'"hey really had to gnaw at it for
awhile."
.Roughly three-quarters of the
warehouse, which was once used
to store paper rolls ready for ship-
ping, was down by the first of the
week. inth the remainder slated
to be taken down in the next cou-
...ple of days.,.
It has been. 'a painstaking
process for CCC Group Inc.,
which is demolishing the mill site.
.The inside of the warehouse
had -to be stripped and the brick
walls between girders torn down
and cleaned to ensure a safe,envi-
ronment.
The oft-times angry weather
of recent,days was hardly a help.
By the time the shearers went
to work late last week,, the ware-
house resembled one of those pic-
tures of European cities ravaged
by bombs during World War II.
The shearers cut through a
girder at a time, snipping the top,
snipping the middle and finally
snipping the bottom before rip-
ping away each girder, the roof
gradually collapsing, inward on
itself.
When the work is complete,
the concrete slab that served as
the warehouse's foundation will
become the way station for steel
heading out of the mill site.
"It is going to be a process ...
area where the ferrous steel will
be cut for shipping," said John
Griffith, co-division manager for
CCC Group.
An estimated 100,000 tons of
ferrous (iron) steel will be cut into
5x3 pieces before it is shipped out


for melting.,
The proximity to the rail line
'which 'was once used for shipping
paper made the No. 1 warehouse"
site ideal for that process, Griffith-
said.
Cutting the steel to melting


size will be the responsibility oof
the same company that cut the
.steel from the destroyed World
Trade Center after last Septem-
ber's terronst attacks.
Old No. 1 submitted. but it
did'sod very stubbornly.


The #1 .warehouse looks like a-skeleton as crews prepare for its
final demolition.


Gulf Pines Hospital Gets

Healthy Survey Results


.On July 31,. 2002, the Florida
Agency for Health Care
Administration provided the
results of their annual re-certifi-
cation survey to Gulf Pines
Hospital, and it was good news. "It
has to be among the best survey
results for any hospital in the
state of Florida," says hospital
administrator Hubert Steeley.
"It certainly is the best survey
this hospital has had to date. The
hospital had "zero" deficiencies in
their survey for compliance with
"Medicare Conditions of
Participation" and "zero" defi-
ciencies in our survey for compli-
ance.with the "Life Safety Code". I
am so proud of the many employ-
ees that worked hard over the
past few years to make this possi-
ble."
During the two day survey
process, the state survey team


reviewed the following areas:
inpatient, laboratory, radiology,
surgery, recovery room, emer-
gency room, contractual services,
disaster planning, personnel
records, governing body, medical
staff by-laws, pharmacy, respira-
tory therapy,. housekeeping, uti-
lization review, medical records,
and discharge planning.
Surveyors were impressed
with the hospital's new state of
the art electronic medical records
filing system as well as their newly
acquired Pyxis Pharmaceutical
Dispensing System. "We are one of
the first hospitals in the state to
become compliant with HIPPA's
(Health Insurance Privacy
Portability Act) confidentiality
requirements," said Steeley.
Surveyors further commended the
hospital for their continuous
efforts to maintain and improve
the care and services provided.

School Is In Session

School bells should have been ringing as we warmed
up the presses to publish this week's edition of The Star.
The 2002-2003 school year is officially in session for.
more than 2,100 Gulf County and Mexico Beach stu-
dents. This. annual tolling of school bells marks the
beginning of another exciting year.
It won't be but a few days and fall football practice will
,be under way, bands will begin putting their routines
together, and cheerleaders I'm sure are already working
on cheers.
Those "yellow dogs" .can be seen making twice per day,
trips delivering their precious cargo. Bicycles, cars, roller
blades and walking feet focus on the pathways to respec-.
tive schools. .
Summer vacation is over!!! ,
I know that most of you don't need a reminder that.
school is iii session because you're right in the middle of
S all the hustle and: bustle .... But let's do remember to
drive with an' extra measure of caution as these lives
begin another year in the halls of learning.



I Knew t But I


ave UpLongAgo

SWhen I got home from work a few days ago, I discov-
ered a note from Herman Jones in my mailbox.
Herman hit on a subject that I have often addressed
and corrected in various writings, but in recent years,,
I've just. given in to the masses.
Herman says--
My neighbor, a newcomer, caught a mess of mackerel.
I asked, "Where'd you catch "em?"
"Right inside the Cape," as he pointed to St. Joseph
Point. I.
Real estate ads speak of the San Bias Peninsula and
the award-winning San Bias Beaches; such a place does
not exist.
Signs on beach property tell of Ocean View and Ocean
'Breeze, and I wonder which ocean they have -in
mind-thd Atlantic or the Pacific? Could it be the Gulf of
Mexico?
I called the dispatcher to report a beach driving viola-
tion. I tell him I'm on 'the tip of the Cape'., I'm informed-
I'm in violation because that's in the State Park!
Cape San Bias begins at Salinas Park and ends at the
Stump-Hole. North of this is St. Joseph Peninsula. Near
the end, where the trees stop and only dunes exist, is the
Spit. On the very end of the Spit is St. Joseph Point.
Herman furnished a map denoting these points.
which is printed to the right of this blurb. He noted that
these names have appeared on maps and charts for over,
a i hinrled ears .'


Now that I've discovered an ally
plight I'll try to be a little more exact
regarding St. Joseph Peninsula.

One August Buddy Wiggleton
and I determined in our hearts not
to go back to school. We had been
mulling it over for weeks. We
talked about it going to and from
the ball field. We hashed it over at


the swimming pool. We passed
notes on it in church.....
I can tell you, the ending of the
summer and the starting of anoth-
er year of drudgery locked-up in a
classroom was about more than a
body .,uld bear. Just thinking
about it would mess up your whole
last couple of weeks of July.
and all of the few precious, free
days you had left in August!
We dreaded it like the bubonic
plague. School might not have
been that bad except for all that


stuff they expected you to learn.
Fractions was about the worst!
Now, why in the world would you
want to buy 3/5th of something?
And it's hard as the dickens to
even pretend you're interested in
the outcome when you're adding
up 1 and 7/8th plus 4 and 1/16th!
Spelling was just' about as
bad. They'd force you to line up on
either side 'of the room and spell
words like cosmos and disinfec-
tan't. Nobody where we lived ever
used words like that in an actual


~1 of


SAW,


conversation!
They put me and Buddy in the
yellow bird reading class just to
point out that we weren't good
enough to make the blue bird or
the red bird group! It got to the
point where I didn't care if Dick
and Jane got back from town or
,not. Spot was the only character in
the whole book that made any'
sense to us.....
Andthis was way back in the
days before air conditioning. We
couid see that cool shade out
under the big maple tree behind
'the inciinerator-but it 'wasn't
doing us no good in that sweltering
class room. I've seen pencils melt!
Peanut butter arid banana sand-
wiches go sour! Sweat running like
rivulets down my chin! LaRenda
Bradfield pass out! ..'. "
Listen. if it hadn't a been for
recess and clay modeling-would-
n't none of us signed up for the
second grade!
By, the summer following our
fourth grade year anticipation was
not an ally. We had enjoyed near
"bout three months of freedom.....
and time to reflect on the joys of
running loose. But as summer
melted thoughts of chalk creaking
on blackboards crept to mind. You
couldn't keep them out! You'd start
to dream of being confined 'in this
giant brick building 'with no doors
or windows. You'd look out at
Duke rolling in the back yard and
rub your eyes-is that Spot? You
would be ending behind the tractor
and you'd swear you could hear
that school bell .... TOLLING FOR
YOU!
I'm telling you. cogitating on
returning to school could give a
ten year old ulcers! I'd get to think-
ing about those new Tuf-Nut jeans
I always got for the first day of
school. Mother would rub a little
VitaJis in our hair "to make it stay
down proper". And she insisted
that we wear shoes. Folks, I'd walk
the four rrules-and limp into class
with my feet blistered, both legs
chaffed. smelling like a p.ake oil
sajesman.....
That was enough to educate a
,man night 'there!- '.
Leon didn't help. *I'm telling
you guys. you never had a teacher
like the blitzkrieg commando
queern" He was a .fw years ahead
of, us and. he'd' "lived through",
"every teacher in the elementary
school We. didn't know what a
blitzkneg was. but we could telljby
his tone that it wasn't good. 'Old
iron jaws will chew vou up and spit
, you out. She doesn't like boys! Try,
not to sit too close to the front. You
get up there too close and she can
reach you from her desk with that
leead weighted, bolo yardstick. ...'
You understand now why me
and Buddy were so ardently
reviewing our "ways-to-keep-from-
going-back-to-school" options
We could -run away. Budy
had& a cousin, in J ackson. .Tut
would he take u s;in?. And, h6ow
would we get there? I didn't like'

GETTING BACK TO what I
was wanting about .. Dr. Wayne
is still thinking about his
patients.
This past week he thought
about me. He sent to my former
office a: copy of a Lewis Grizzard
book. It was a copy I hadn't read
before.
He 'knows I am a fan of the .
late Lewis.: I have several of the'


books he has written, but not
this, one. I guess that's because
Lewis wrote this one about golf;
and I don't play-nor have I ever
played-golfl
I didn't know a-person could
write a whole book about golf:
even-a small book, as this one
happens to be.
" "Small", I" say, because it's
not thick! It's just a thin, paper-
back, but it is all about golf ..;
all 150 pages of It. .

SOMEBODY GAVE IT to him,
because his name is on the fly
leaf. Probably as a birthday gift.
Now, he .is sharing it with
me..

It's; about two afternoons of
reading, which lets you know
how thin it Is.
It starts off telling the reader
that Lewis Grizzard is no golfer
but he has played with some men
who, arel
I'm no golfer either; but I did
play one round-one time-with
one; if you can call Bill Barlow a
golfer. ,
He let me play a round with
hirm, one day.
We started off, hitting at the
same time. He played a regular
inning of golf and I picked up my
ball from wherever it happened
to be, when he made the hole.
Playing .in that manner, I
think I made a 78 on nine holes.
Not exactly setting the coutrse

After reading Dr. Wayne's
book,: written by Lewis Grizzard,
on the experience of playing golf,
I'm glad I didn't pursue the sport
any farther, or I might have


become addicted ... or I might
have ended up like Lewis; gotten
S.worse!

BUT THEN, I MIGHT have.
written a ,book .on the,
subject-like Lewis-and gotten
rich in the process-again, like
Lewis. I couldn't stand to be rich!
But, I do appreciate receiving
.. the book, Dr. Wayne. I'll get it
.back to you when I'm finished
with.'it. I'll even lend youmy copy
of, "Southern, By the Grace of
God", also written by Grizzard.
You are just as "Southern", I
know from experience.
Didn't you even .plant
peanuts;aiid cotton in the flower
beds at your office to celebrate
Jimmy Carter being elected
President? .
That's being,.'"Southern"!
I know you eat grits .... and
possibly, even fried chicken, and

Fishermen Join Forces to Fight Net Limitations


Class Action Lawsuit Is

Planned In Federal Court


by Tim Croft
For seven years they've casted
about for an adequate response to
those they believe have bent over
backwards to take away their liv-
ing.
Now maybe they've found the
right spot for a nibble.
Some four dozen fishermen
from Gulf,. Franklin, Bay and
Wakulla counties showed up
Tuesday night at the Port St. Joe
Senior's Center seeking informa-
tion on a proposed, federal class
action lawsuit against the state
over the implementation of the
net limitation amendment to the
Florida Constitution overwhelm-
ingly approved by voters in 1994.
Retired Circuit Court Judge
Charles McClure, who has been
retained to spearhead the litiga-
tion, and Ronald Fred Crum, who
along with the Wakulla Fisher-
men's Assoc., has waged a seven-
* year battle with the state over the
implementation of the net limita-
tion amendment, were on hand to
answer questions and solicit $150,
per person to join the class action
suit.
In reality, the fight is being
engaged on several fronts.

Option two was the Asiatic flu.
Listen, a bad case of that would
keep you out of school for months!
But this plan also had some side
effects--most of which dealt with
shots and cod liver oil.
I had seen that Gene Autry

the underground spacemen. I was

folks would go in and sometimes
never come out again. We consid-
ered this option for about three
seconds. I don't care how' crazy or
desperate you get-there are some
things that are worse than' school
We talked about organizing a
strike. But as ten year olds, we
didn't hold any chips.
S. Buddy suggested we burn the
school down. That sounded like a
good idea but unless I had some
fool proof way of blaming it on
Leon I couldn't take even the out-
side chance that Daddy would find
out.
You know how this story ends.
We griped. We complained. We
schemed. We put on our Tuf-Nut

hot-footed it down to the school

Some would say that we made
the right decision.

The first is the state courts,
where the efforts to overturn the
rule-making, or as the fishermen
argue lack thereof, delineating
legal and illegal nets is still alive
in the 1st District Court of
Appeals seven years after the cru-
sade began. 4
While Crum said he was con-
fident that fishermen would pre-
vail over the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion, he added, "It don't matter if
we. get the nets, if they (the FWC)
don't treat me with respect, they
will take everything from me."
The second front, which
sounded like McClure's preferred
battlefield, would be enlisting
Gov. Jeb Bush to do one of two
things: seek an advisory opinion.
from the Florida Supreme Court
on the issue or request the FWC
to explain the link between the
constitutional amendment and its
rule-making process.
Either of those, McClure said,
would likely end -up supporting
the fishermen's argument that the
amendment was .intended as a -
method of limiting fish harvest, orf
an "allocation" issue, and not an
outright ban on nets in state
waters.

He had been in discussions
with the governor's staff but! as of
yet had no concrete response.
"He could really be a hero to.
these people," McClure said.,
The final front is the class-
action lawsuit, which could follow
one of two tracks.
The first would ble a basic civil
rights issue, thaftby forcing com-,
mercial fishermen out of busi-
ness, depriving them of a means
to make a living, the state had
violated the foundation of the.fed-
eral Constitution. ,
"We are all Americans and we
ought to be protected by our gov-
ernment," McClure said. "Right
now, the way they are bdlng
1; treated is they are being p5un-,
ished.
"The Constitution' is intended
to treat people equally, not pin-
point you for punishment."
'The second possible point of
attack for a federal lawsuit would
be under the American with Dis-
abilities Act.
Essentially, this argument
follows the precedent' set with a
golfer who sued the PGA tour to
use a golf cart.
The U.S. Supreme Court
ruled that thegolfer could usethe,.

Gulf to Benefit from $100,000 Grant to

Opportunity Florida from Governor


Gov. Jeb Bush recently
awarded Opportunity Florida Inc.,
a $100,000 regional rural devel-
.opment grant.
The grant will be used to pro-
mote economic development in
Gulf, Calhoun, Franklin, Gads-
den, Holmes, Liberty, Jackson
and Washington counties.
All eight counties were
declared a rural area of critical
economic concern by the governor
in 2000.
'This grant compliments the
significant at Opportunity
Florida has done to increase eco-
nomic development opportunities
in this rural Panhandle area,"
Bush said in a press release. "Job
creation and economic prosperity


are. the cornerstones of this
important grant as we support
these north Florida counties and
others."
Since its creation two years
ago, Opportunity Florida has laid
the groundwork for what should
be an economically productive
year in north Florida.
The organization completed
an underemployment survey,
developed both an existing indus-
try strategy and- investment/
recruitment plan and provided
technical assistance,to local gov-
ernments and economic develop-
ment organizations within the
region.
"By awarding this rural devel-
opment grant, Gov. Bush is help-

on the sample ballots leaving, it
to local Supervisor of Elections to
decide how best to spend that
money.
Griffin figured that sample
ballots, were "the most productive
way."
The ballots will list all races
and candidates just as they'll
appear on voting day.
There will also be instructions
for properly filling in the appropri-
ate ovals, polling times and places
and myriad other tidbits to better

inform the voters on how to cast
their ballots.
"It's a lot of information that
will go right to their house to sat-
isfy state requirements," Griffin
said.
Griffin said voters should
study the candidates, get to know
their platforms, goals and ideas
and take the sample out for a
practice spin.
"We tell them to mark it, take
it to the polling place with you
and you can refer to it as you
vote," Griffin said.
In addition, anyone wishing
to vote by absentee ballot or in-
office 'with new scanning
machines voters will be able to
cast their ballots at the Supervi-
sor of Elections office prior to vot-


ing day should notify the elec-
tions office as soon as possible.
The absentee ballots should
be in Griffin's hands by the end of
the week, she said.
Due to a settlement between
the state and the Florida Democ-
ratic Party issued Tuesday, a sep-
arate mailing will be required for
absentee ballots for the Democra-
tic primary for governor.
Two 'years ago the Florida
Legislature passed a measure
requiring that ballots include the
language "Vote For One Pair" in
the governor's race.
However, last year, the Legis-
lature approved a law 'that allows
candidates for governor to wait
until after the primary to select a
running mate.

That created the potential for
confusion due to the conflicting
language of the laws, particularly
since none of the Democratic cari-
didates for governor have selected
a running mate.
Therefore, absentee voters in
the Democratic. primary will
receive a separate mailing empha-
sizing that they should select just
one candidate or their vote will be
nullified
Further, the language "Vote
For One Pair" must be manually
changed on all the county's
absentee ballots to eliminate the
word "pair" from the ballot.
For more information or to
notify the Supervisor of Electionis
of a desire to vote absentee, voters
should call 229-6117.

Harold, ,
I am s..aying goodbye since two
years have passed! I will never forget
you and our memories of 50 wonder-
ful years of marriage. We said a spe-
cial hello on March 4, 1950, but
today I say a very sad goodbye. It has
been extra sad for our sons since you
left, Don-Walt-Dit-Ray, & Keith,
because somewhere along the way we
lost your good sense of humor and
smiling face, especially when a joke
be told on you. We all miss the smile.
and laughter. It pays a special part in
each of our hearts.
Your beacon light still shines in,
our lives. We all realize God made
you unique and. special. You were one
'of a kind.
As I shed these tears, I know you
are gone and not coming back. I'll
always cherish and .remember the
past. All I can look to is whatever lies
:ahead.
Edna S. Butler,


.. Our hearts are full of thanks
for ..the care and concern Athat
everyone showed to .the Bush
family, during our timer of rneed.
Thank you for all the food, flowers
and love that you shared with us.

Bystanders Can'
Save Lives of Kids
Left in Hot Cars
UF Expert Says People
Shouldn't Hesitate to Call 911
Attention shoppers: You could
help sase a life on your next trip
to the store by keeping an eye out
for small children left alone and
exposed to sweltering heat inside
parked cars. says a University of
Florida pediatric critical care
Expert.


"Every summer. children die
under these circumstances, but
there's something we can do
about it," said Arno Zaritsky.
M.D., chief of pediatric critical
care at UF's College of Medicine.
"We just have to be observant and
be willing to take responsibility
and do what we think is in the
best interests of the child."
August is Purple. Ribbon
Month, reminding drivers never to
leave youngsters unattended in
cars. From July 2000 to June
2.001. 78 children died in the U.S.
in non-traffic accidents.involving
motor vehicles, and the most
common cause was exposure to
overheated vehicle interiors,
according to the Centers. for
Disease Control and Prevention.
The temperature in a closed
vehicle on a hot day can quickly]
exceed 150 degrees Fahrenheit,
Zaritsky said a child can die from
heat stroke if his or her body
temperature climbs above 1.06 to
107 degrees. Small children are
more vulnerable to heat stroke
than adults are because their
bodies have less effective sweating
mechanisms and greater surface
area compared with body weight.
If a child left in a vehicle
appears alert, it mary be safe to
wait a moment to see if the driver
reappears, Zaritsky said. But if
the child appears groggy or
unconscious. or if the car is
parked at a large shopping
complex where the driver can't be
located immediately, take action
and call 911.
Better to be safe than sorry,"
he said. "In this situation, every
minute counts."
Concerned bystanders should
leave rescue efforts to pro-
fessionals. said Hall Robbins.
executive director of the Florida
Police Chiefs Association in
Tallassee.
.You can help by calling 911
and giving an accurate address,
location and description of the
vehicle," Robbins said. Stay. .in
the area. stay on the line 'and
follow the dispatcher's in-
structions."
If the .driver returns before
help arrives, don't start a
confrontation, he said.

Second Chance


expulsion hearings have nearly
tripled in the past two years.
In Gulf' County,' there were
12-15 expulsion hearings last
year alone.
"We had a lot of incidents last
year, more than the last three or-
four years," Kelley said. "We had
more in the last' three or four.
years than in the previous 30
years, probably."
The bailiwick for educators is
what to do with disruptive or
expelled students. how to balance
a constitutional charge to educate
each individual student against:
the needs of the school population
as a'whole.
Without an alternative, such
-as the Gulf Academy. students
tossed from a. mainstream school
are in a kind of education purga-
tory. '.
"We've' had more .expulsions
than we've ever had and we are in
a rural area where there are no
alternatives." Kelley said. "We
need to provide one for them.
"We have been reluctant to,
expel kids because there has been
no alternative. We want them in
school. We need a place for them."
Students facing expulsion will
be given the option of attending

the academy.,
A screening committee at a
middle or high school a panel.
comprised of the principal, two
faculty members, the academy
teacher and district dropout pre-
vention coordinator can recom-
mend a non-voluntary placement
of a student in the academy.
There are nearly a dozen cri-
teria for eligibility to be placed at
the academy, ranging from con-
sistently disruptive or threatening
behavior to documentation .of,
pending felony charges or drug,-
alcohol or sexual offenses.
Kelley said the academy is
intended for the worst of the
worst.
"I don't vant this to be rou- ,
tine." Kelley said. "I want this to,
be for the hardcore cases. It needs
to be done with due deliberation
and as a last resort."
The teacher assigned to the
academy, Minnie Likely, who has
worked in several local schools. is
certified to teach ESE, so any stu-
dent can be assigned to the acad-
emy and the district will be able to
meet their academic needs. .
Assignment to the academy-
will also mean a loss of certain
privileges. Kelley said, such as the
right to play sports.
Students will be at the acade--
my for a minimum of 90 days.
They will sign contracts which will
contain certain academic and
behavioral benchmarks which
must be met before they can
return to their home school.


The curriculum will be tai-
lored so that students can contin-
ue on a track for advancement to
the next grade level and/or grad-
uation.
"If a kid goes over there and
doesn't do well, he stays over
there," Kelley said. "They will have.
to ,eiin their way out."
As much as possible, Kelley
said, the school will be funded
from non-general revenue dollars.
Transportation of students
from northern Gulf County, will
come out of general revenue, but
the distinct will attempt to pay
SLikely and an aide out of specified
pots of money separate from gen-
era] revenue.
Renovations needed to the old,
Adult School facility will be
undertaken by district personnel.
with Kelley adding that students
placed there will be encouraged to
offer input and effort into future!
improvements to the facility.
In other business during
last week's meeting, the School
Board formally approved the
2002-2003 budget. ,
The total millage rate, includ-
ing state-required local effort:
funding, discretionary and capital
outlay. will be 618750, the third
lowest among the state's 671
school distncts.
The budget includes a drop of
3 percent in overall spending.

Jet Skis Linked to Serious
Injuries in Children
Turning on a dime and,
reaching speeds up to 65 mph,
jet-powered personal watercraft
can make the traditional

especially to kids :seeking

But medical experts warn,
that children are more likely to be,
seriously injured in accidents
involving personal watercraft. or

Small motorboats.
SMost of the accidents involve

' passengers tend to remain inside
the bdat and contact its interior
. surfaces. Personal watercraft
riders often become airborne and
contact whatever is in their path.
In 2000, Florida had more
than 105,000 registered personal
watercraft. according to the

servation Commission..
The extreme maneuverability
of .personal watercraft tempts,
operators to make sudden turns

unexpected hazards for others or'
leave operators disoriented.
In Florida. the rrunimum age
to operate a personal watercraft is
14 years. and youth is a factor in

Share Digital Photos

with Family and Friends


Sharing photos with family
and friends is easier than ever. If
you own a film camera, don't fret:
the digital world hasn't left you in
its wake.
And if you're one of the mil-
lions of Americans who now own
digital cameras, don't worry. It's
still easy and inexpensive to get
quality prints. IThe advances in
photo technology have made some
film-camera owners feel left
behind and many digital-camera
owners wondering what they've
gotten themselves into.
Actually, no matter what kind
of camera you own, it's never been
easier to take pictures and share
them with your family and
friends. Here are some tips for
doing more with your pictures:
SLearn about digital cameras.
-Most retailers who sell digital
cameras have experienced sales-
people who can answer your
questions, demonstrate various
features and make recommenda-
tions on cameras to best suit your
needs.
Make digital pictures from
film. Every camera is a. digital
camera when you put your images
onto a CD. You can have a roll of


film transferred to a CD at most
processors.. The CD comes with
software that enables you to edit
and share your photos.
Make inexpensive quality
prints from digital cameras. It's
quick and easy to convert your
digital images into sharp, high-
quality prints. Just ask about
Kodak Picture Maker or Fuji
Frontier processing.
Other options for digital
images include archiving them on
CDs to save space on your com-
puter's hard drive. Each photo CD
holds up to 300 images. And
prints from CDs are easy and
inexpensive -- about the same as
prints from film. Another option is
to buy a stand-alone ink-jet
printer that accepts the memory
card from your digital camera
and, with the press of a few but-
tons, prints sharp; colorful,
images -- no need to be hooked
into a computer.
Make -gifts, announcements'
and more. You can do a lot more
with film than make small prints.
You can convert your images into
4 by 8 1/2-inch calendar prints,
or personalized photo greeting
cards. For a few bucks more, you
can get 8 by 10-inch album prints


that feature up to six photos with
colorful themed art borders. You
can even convert your images into
photo coffee mugs, T-shirts, puz-
zles and mouse pads. You can
have a photo framed, wrapped
and shipped directly to a friend or


loved one. You can even make real
5 x 7 folded greeting cards with a
Hallmark design and greeting,
and your photo printed right on
them.
The possibilities for film and
digital images are almost endless.


Last year for the first time, sales
of digital cameras outpaced sales
of film cameras. But regardless of
which medium you use -- film or .
digital -- you can now do more
with your photos than you ever
'thought possible.

Korean War
Veterans are
Eligible for
High School
Diplomas
Many of Florida's 294,000
Korean War veterans vwho left high
school to serve in the military may
be, eligible to receive the high
school diploma they didn't receive
over 50 years ago. Florida's
Legislature recently passed, and
Governor Bush signed into law, a
bill allowing Florida's Korean War
veterans an opportunity to obtain
their high school diploma if they
meet the following criteria:
Be a Florida resident; joined
the service between June 1950
and January- 1954; received an
honorable discharge; started high
school between 1946 and 1950;
and were scheduled to graduate
from high school between 1950
and 1954.
The program is similar to the
one enacted two years ago for
Florida's 600,000 World 'War II
veterans who may not have gotten
their high school diplomas
because of the war. To date, over
2,500 World War II veterans have
been awarded their high school
diploma from the Florida
Department of Education. This
program is still in effect.
Sponsors of the high school
diploma program for Korean War
veterans, Representative Nancy
Argenziano of Crystal River and
Senator Ginny Brown-Waite of
Brooksville, sponsored the, bill
when several constituents stated
they felt the high school diploma
program should be extended to
veterans of the Korean War as well
as World War II.
The Departments of
Education and Veterans' Affairs
are working together to assist vet-
erans.with the application process
for their diplomas. Interested vet-
erans should contact the Division
of Workforce Development,
Florida Department of Education,
325 W. Gaines Street, Room 744,
Tallahassee, Florida .32399-0400
or by dialing (850) 922-5961; or
the Department of Veterans'
Affairs at PO Box 31003, St.
Petersburg 33731 or by calling 1-
800-827-1000 ext. 7400.
Applications can be down-
loaded from either the
Department of Education or the
Department of Veterans' Affairs.

Tommy Long acknowledged,
mixed emotions.
In the end, though, the mix
was just too good to pass up.
Long resigned as teacher and
boys basketball coach at
Wewahitchka High School last
week to take the reins of the boys
basketball program at Mosley
High in Bay County.
The opportunity to make a
huge leap in school size and
wealth of talent, and the opportu-
nity to build a program virtually
from scratch proved too alluring.
"I was torn leaving Wewa,"
Long said. "I like the people there
and the kids, but this was an
opportunity I couldn't pass up."
Long leaves behind a two-year
stint of success with the Gators.
Wewahitchka went 21-7 in
his first year, ending the season
as one of the tdp- 16 teams in
Class 2A in the state.
2 Last year, the Gators finished
20-9 with a regular-season dis-
trict titlf. The Gators lost by two


Are you ready for some
football?
It's that time of year again.
The Gene Raffield Football League
is now accepting registrations for
the 2002 season. Last year both
the 9 to 10 year old and 11 to 12
year old teams won their second
consecutive Super Bowls.".
This year they will be going for
three titles. In previous years the
league has had teams for 9 and 10,
year olds and for 11 and ,12 year
olds.,Some 7 and 8 year old boys
have played on the.9 and 10 year
old teams. This year,. if the
numbers are there, they will have
7 and ,8 year old teams in the
league. That way. the younger
'players can begin to learn the
game by competing against boys
their own age.
Also this year the seventh
graders who meet' the age
requirements can play again with
the Buccaneers. -
Registration is being held
during normal working hours at
Triple B Sports Supply located at
319 Reid Avenue. The registration
fee i"s $50.00. Please bring a
photograph', evidence, of,
insurance and if this is the
..player's first year, a copy of 'his
birth certificate. The player must
be present so that he can be fitted
for equipment and uniforms. A',
doctor's release will be necessary,
before he can practice.
'Girls interested in being
cheerleaders can register at the
same place for the cheer-leading
.organization.'
Let's ,make this another
banner year for our young,
athletes.

playoffs.
Long brings the same ingredi-
ents he mixed at Wewahitchka,
ever-changing defenses and an
up-tempo offense, to Mosley. '
The Dolphins, competing in
the state's large-school classifica-
tion, have struggled under what
could charitably be called a
revolving door of coaches.
Long is the third. coach in
three years at Mosley, the fourth
in six years.
"The last two coaches we've
had here came without varsity
experience and it was obvious we
needed to look in another direc-
tion," said Mosley principal Bill,

Eliminated '
After winning their opener, the
Wewahitchka Wild Thangs lost

The Wild Thangs opened the
tournament with a convincing 15-

On Sunday, ,'howeVer,

"If you look at what (Coach
Long) did the last two years at
Wewahitchka, you know he
knows that he's doing. We have
the talent here, the. booster sup-
port, we just need the right coach.
We thought he was the one."
Long said he was concerned
about the: turnover in coaches;,
but recognized the opportunity.
"I want to build a program
and. they are going to give me the
latitude to do that," Long said. "I
want to build a program based on
the same things we taught at
Wewa leadership and character.
" 'The kids' education is No. 1.
We want to build their character.
If you build a program based on
leadership and character, the
wins are going to come. It's all
about the quality of the kids you
develop."
Mosley returns four starters
and six regulars from last year's
team.
Having stuck together;
worked out together in the offsea-
son despite the lack of a coach,
Long said some of the leadership
ability, an unteachable intangible,
was already evident. .
"I'm going to jump in with
both feetand we are going to pre-
sent 'ourselves the way we
should," Long said.
"I think in two'or three years.
you are going.to be surprised by
the quality of the program we'll
have."

Coloring For Money


by Tim Croft
Jacob Causey may as well be
a leprechaun with a four-leaf
clover.
Causey, an 11-year-old from
Wewahitchka, is on a winning
streak that would be the envy of
any sports team.
He recently won a national
coloring contest sponsored by IGA
and several other food companies,
winning an all-expense trip for
four to the Easton, Pa., headquar-
ters of Crayola crayons.
Then, in a separate drawing
at the local IGA, he won a 27-inch
color television, which due to age
constraints his mother had to
claim.
"My .(grandmother) said I
should have 6one out right then


little she used to pick the worms
off a tree and sell them to a
woman for fishing," Causey said.
"I figured if I drew it I'd get a sav-
ings bond and get something for
my future.
"Never did I dream I'd win a
national contest."
For winning, Causey and his
mother, Debbie, along with her
brother, will travel to Easton, like-
ly sometime in the fall, Debbie
Causey said, when the leaves are
changing and the air crisp but not
yet snowy white.
The prize includes round-trip
air fare for four, a two-night hotel

Fellow Gulf Countians,
Campaigning for public office is hard
work. But that is as it should be, since I-
doing the job of the County Judge is
hard work. Having been taught from an "-'
early age that hard work is a virtue, I
know no other way to get the job done
than to give my very best effort to what-
ever task is assigned to me


L


Whether cutting grass or hoeing the
garden, I was taught to do it right.' At
age I1 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
It 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 lobs
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 Stale 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

The bonus is admission to

quarters.
When informed by letter that
he had won the contest, Cauisey
said he was knocked off his feet -'
literally.
"I had to go lay down," he
said. "After that, I said, 'Wow.'"
"I was just hoping for a sav-
ings bond. I couldn't believe I got
to nationals and then won."
The airplane ride will be his
first, Causey said.
"I'm a little excited and a little
nervous," he said, displaying both
emotions on his open face. ,
Winning seems a natural -step
for a young, artist who hopes to
one day study to be a marine biol-
ogist.
His mother said -Causey
seemed drawn to drawing as a.,
young child, displaying natural
ability.
"When I was younger I'd see
something on T.V. and Id draw it
and it looked exactly like on T.V.,"
the cherubic youngster said.
He has doodled a host of car-
toon characters such as the Poke-'
mon characters,. the Incredible
Hulk. and the like, his mother
said. .
Choosing the catalpa tree as a
subject for the IGA contest proved,
the easy part.
"Almost everybody, has that
kind of tree," Causey said, survey-,
ing the rural landscape north of
Wewahitchka which he calls

Being: no fool Causey,
retrieved a broken branch and
some, leaves from the roadside''
and retired to his air conditioned
home to work.
"A day and an hour", later, his
drawing was complete.
It was' submitted in March
and Causey was notified earlier '
this summer that his drawing had,
been chosen the grand-prize win-'
ner.
"Your exceptional drawing
symbolizes the true spirit of y
Hometown Green," wrote Zorona
Chapman, promotions manager
for IGA in her letter of congratula-
tions '

Fire House Fellowship


It is not unusual for churches
to start new children's programs,
enlarge Sunday School classes, or
start an early Sunday morning.
service. When there seems to be a
need, ideas are laid out and, after
much prayer, -new ministries are
developed.
But what about the inid-week
service? Traditionally, Wednesday
nights have ,been formatted with
brief studies from the Bible,
.prayer, children and youth pro-
grams, and choir practice. It is not
often that Wednesday night ser-
vices split in order to create a sec-
ond service.
Faith Bible Church is doing
just that. For Faith Bible Church,
the "Wednesday Evening Prayer
Time and Bible Study" has been. a
staple since the church's founding
*in 1959.' However, beginning
'August 8th, and each Thursday
night to follow, residents and visi-
tors from Indian Pass, Cape San
Bias, and the Peninsula will have
"church" come to them.
Having seen a need in theta
southern portion of Gulf county.,
Faith Bible :Church will begin a ,
second mid-week service. "We
have. a number of folks ,from
Indian Pass and the Cape who
attend Faith Bible Church. We felt
it was- time' to go and meet these
people out there." e\pl u ned Dr.
Bill Taylor, pastor of Faith Bible
Church.
"It has been .discovered that
many of the people in this part of
Gulf County do not go to church.
Maybe if we biing the church to.
them this will be a good start,"
Taylor continued.
The new Thursday night
mnee ..v..w il' be called thle. "Fire' *


House Fellowship" since they will
be held at the South Gulf County
Volunteer Fire Stateion. Dr.
Taylor, who is familiar to many in
the area, will be leading the stud-
ies; Some of the topics will include
world, religions, cults, various
world views, and discussions on
ethics and morality.
As to who will come to the Fire
House Fellowship, Taylor gives
the. Fellowship's purpose: "The
Fire House Fellowship is a non-
denominational Bible study,
designed to reach believers and
those interested in discussing and
exploring the Bible in their search,
for answers to6 common and con-
troversial issues of our day." This
means it is open to anyone.
Though open to all denomina-
tions adnd all people---Christians
and n6n-Christians alike-this is
not a substitute for regular
,church attendance nor is it to
take away from other area church
ministries. While the Fire House
Fellowship is sponsored by Faith
Bible Church., simply attending
does not make one a member of,
Faith Bible Church
'We desire to appeal to the
intellect of those seeking answers
from the Word of God,. and chal-
lenge each one to determine apd
define, his .position with Jesus
Christ," .explained Taylor.. "We
want to reach the residents, the
seasonal crowd, and also the
occasional vacationer that wants
to stop in."
One of the many benefits of
the Fire House Fellowship is that
the atmosphere will be casual as
well as the attire These meetings
will incorporate a num.rhbe7ol


SBut those who hope inrrthe-L- Wf
will renew their strength. They
will soar on wings like eagles...

tasty, lower fat, healthier
alternatives to typical barbecue
fare.
Grilled vegetables, fish and
chicken can be the stars of the
show with a little flavor boost frqm
zesty marinades. In addition to
adding flavor, marinades have the
added benefits of tenderizing food
and keeping it moist during
cooking. ,
When using a marinade, there
are a few things, you need to keep
in mind: Use a non-reactive
container (one made of glass,
porcelain, clay .r stainless steel)
to marinate your food. Zip-lock
plastic food bags also work well.
Avoid aluminum and cast iron,
which can. react with acids in the
marinade. ,
The container you use should
be shallow, so the marinade
covers as much of the food as
possible; turn the food at least

once an hour. When marinating
meat, fish or chicken, do it in the
refrigerator, not on the kitchen
counter, to avoid contracting
harmful bacteria.
Do not reuse leftover
marinade. During contact with
raw foods, the marinade can pick
up harmful bacteria that could
make you ill. For the same reason,
it's wise to cook leftover marinade
before using it to baste with or to
add to a sauce (boil for five
minutes to destroy any harmful,
bacteria). -
The flavors you -can use to
marinate your food are limited
only by your imagination.
However, if you have more
imagination than time, there is a
wide variety of choices on your
grocer's shelf. If your goal is a
healthy meal, just be sure to
choose a marinade that doesn't
include a lot- of added fat,

Concerned About

Health Care
Judging from Dr. Iver's letter
to the editor you published
several months ago, and his
recent attempt to be a good
Samaritan, there must be
something this man is trying to
tell the citizens of Gulf County.,
For the most part, as I review
the elected and appointed list, our
county leaders seem.to have some
expertise in their field. The extent
of their expertise should, of
course, depend upon the
complexity of their position.
The Statb of Florida has
determined that each county have
a County Medical Officer. One
who could, if necessary, obtain a
court order to. do just about
anything to protect the health of
the citizens- or citizen of the.
county (residents, legal or not).
Who is ours?
: In my twenty-five year
residence, I have seen many
bright spots in the health care


delivery system but not one,
concerted effort toward anything
long-term. Will we always depend
on "out-of-town" and State "9 to
5" clinics. I1 understand we have a
health planning board but who is
on this board and when and
where do they meet?
I hope Dr. Ivers will share
with us the frustrations of having
to practice medicine in his
circumstances, and most of all,
what action needs to be taken for
now and the future.

Care at Bay St. Joseph
More than Satisfactory
Thursday, I read with interest
the ,article on Bay St. Joseph
Rehabilitation,' in the .News
Herald. I realize it was written by


a reporter and not by someone
with first hand knowledge of the
care the residents receive. I am
the daughter of one of these
residents.
It became necessary in March
to put my mom and dad in a place
where they could receive more
care than we were able to give at
home. We visited the home several
times and talked with the staff.
We discussed it with my parents,
as we wanted a place where they
would be satisfied and receive the
care they needed. We have been
more than satisfied with the care,
love and compassion they have
received.
My .father passed away on
April 24th. His last days were very
painful.; The nursing staff did all
they could to keep him
comfortable while giving my
mother the support she needed.,
My mother decided she would
remain at Bay St. Joe. She bad
made friends, and felt comfortable
with the care she was receiving..- ,
I visit the home several times
a, week.. The facility is' always
spotless clean,, no odor; the staff
caring and compassionate..

Memories of the
Port Theatre in
Port St. Joe
I have many happy memories
of times spent at the Port Theatre,-
with my father, Richard Britton
Bailey, in the years 1946-48. We
lived in. Beacon Hill at the time,
and my dad worked at the paper
mill in Port St. Joe.
ie and I would hitchhike
from Beacon Hill into town" -
Port St. Joe to see movies at the
Port, including ."Red River" and
'Treasure of the Sierra Madre" in
1948. Both of these are
considered four star classics
today, and when we saw 'them,
they were wonderful to my 'eight
year old eyes. Being there with my
father, who was also my best
friend. made it even more
enjoyable.
My parents went to the Port
Theatre in the evening sometimes,
while a babysitter stayedwith my
fivelyear old brother and me. They
went to see another film classic.
"Voice of the Turtle" in 1947.
When they got back home, I asked
my mother, Coline Hoefling
Bailey, what the title meant, and
how it fit into the story. especially
since a turtle doesn't actually
have much of a voice. She didn't


actually know either, but many
years later I learned it's a Bible
quotation, originally the "voice of
the turtledove" which niakes more
sense.
During another trip to Port St.
Joe, this time with all four of us
together, my mother, brother and
I went shopping, while my dad
went to, the. Port Theatre to see
"Dracula" starring Bela Lugosi.
When we were finished and ready
to go home, my mother asked me
to go into the theatre to let him
know.
I explained the situation to,
the person at the ticket window,
and was allowed to go inside in
search of Daddy. Since I hadn't
paid for a ticket, it seemed only
right not to look at the screen.
After searching the back seats
and not finding my 'father in any
of them, I worked my way slowly
forward, scanning the seats as my
eyes slowly adjusted to the. dim
theatre interior. At that moment,
the scene on the screen changed,
with a sudden close up of Mr.
Lugosi and his mesmerizing eyes,
as he hypnotized a flower seller on
a street corner. I was almost
hypnotized as well.
. Right after that, I found my,
father, and we walked out of the
Port together. I never forgot Bela
Lugosi's arresting gaze. and have
enjoyed watching him as.Dracula,
and in other films, many times on.
television and videotape. since
then. : ,
The slanted floor at the Port,
and the imposing marquee
impressed me. It seemed a
fascinating place to enter,, and
inside the magic was always,
there. all easy to see clearly due to
the tilted floor and descending
rows of seats.
My father passed away on'
Decemriber 24, 1948. as the result
of an automobile accident on his'
way to work the "graveyard shift"
at the Port St. Joe paper mull on a
rainy, night ten days' before
Christmas. '
My father was, taken to Gulf
Pines: Hospital,' Port, St. Joe and
remained in a coma until his
death on,. Christmas Eve. His
funeral took place on Christmas
Day, 1948, from 'Comforter
Funeral Home.in.Port St. Joe,'and
burial at Magnolia Cemetery in
Apalachicola.
This was recalled, in a
conversation a few years ago with
someone who also had worked a(
the mrrll. remembered the accident
and knew the pallbearers. A man
I met last year, who lives here in


Wewahitchka, told me, he knows
the man who worked as.. a
replacement for my father the
night of the accident.
I still miss him very much.
When I visit his grave, where my
grandmother, Marion Britton Bell,
Bailey also lies, I'm happy to recall
the wonderful times we had
together at the Port Theatre.

Alligators-From Endangered


to Abundant In Five Decades


In the southeast, it is not
unusual to read or hear about an
alligator appearing -in someone's
back yard. Usually they are there
by mistake and lost. Some people
feel like the creatures are
encroaching on their territory and
consider them a nuisance. Others
believe humans are overstepping
their boundaries. Either way you
view it, the fact remains that there.
certainly are a lot of alligators out
there.
In Florida alone according the
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, an
estimated '1.5 million of the
dinosaur-like reptiles inhabit the.
rivers, lakes and marshes
throughout the state. This does
not even include the numbers
being raised as livestock on
farms.
It has not always been this
way. Back in the 1960s, American
alligators in, the wild had been
hunted and \ poached for their
valuable .hides to the point of
endangerment. With the help of
legislation and the alligator
industry's active involvement in
sustainable-use management
programs, the, population had.
begun to increase by the early
1970s. The Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission
(now Florida Fish and .Wildlife
Conservation Commission) began

conducting Florida alligator
population surveys in. 1974. From
that first survey to the present,
results have shown progressive
increases.
A sustainable-use manage-
ment program is a. conservation
strategy to present the depletion
of a natural resource. In essence,
to protect the alligators in the
wild, farms were established to
raise alligators for harvesting
while allowing the wild population
to increase. Land and wildlife
management programs regulate
the -farming and harvest of the .
alligator and the sale of its
products. Wild harvests. are
periodically conducted because,
the American alligator population
rebounded so extensively by the
late 1980s that there was a need.
to gently control the ,growth.
Limited hunting licenses are
issued to trappers to be used at
specific times. Wildlife officials
also issue permits to producers to
collect eggs in the wild to hatch
and raise alligators on the farms.
Although it has been a viable
, .American industry for some time
iin, the southeast, relatively few
-people realize that alligators are
farmed similar to other barnyard
species. When most people think,
.of farming, they visualize fields of
waving grain, fruit-laden
orchards, or rows of vegetable
crops,. The image of a "farm"
teeming with toothy alligators
certainly doesn't come to mind.
The farming of alligators
begins with the development of
controlled environments that
mirror the best of their natural
habitats. Carefully monitored and
regulated removal of eggs from the
wild is the next step in
establishing an alligator farm
capable of producing sufficient
quantities to supply market
demand. It takes twelve to


eighteen months for alligators to
reach harvest size of four to five
feet.
The production and harvest-
ing of alligators has not only
.contributed to the conservation of
the species but is has also had a
substantial impact on the
economy. In 2000, the estimated
wholesale producer values for
Florida alligator skins and meat
was over $8.5 million. The retail
value is considerably higher
Although all .parts of the
American alligator are. used for
various markets, the skins make
up about 68% of the total
wholesale value. The high value of
the skins is due to the durability
and elegance 'of alligator leather.
Alligator leather products can be
found in most of the finer retail
department stores and boutiques.
Skilled. designers and man-
ufacturers create a variety of
products,' from .fashion access-
:ories to upholstery. Consumers'
who purchase these items
appreciate the classic beauty and
uniqueness of the leather.
Because each alligator has its own
individual characteristics on the
tiles of its skin, there will never be
two authentic alligator products
exactly the,-same.' This is an
important attractiofi to the'
discerning consumer who prefers
to be unique.
Alligator meat i's finding a
growing niche. Over 306b of all the
alligator producers' income in,
Florida comes from the sale of the
meat. To further spur sales, the
industry is increasing its efforts to
educate consumers and restau-
rants about the attributes of the
meat. When .compared to other
meats. such as beef, chicken and
fish. alligator is low in fat and.
calories and high in protein.
The increased abundance bf'

The Southern


Credit Scores Often
Most Important Factor
in Credit Approvals
If you're not paying attention
to your credit score, you might be
paying too much .for your credit'
cards, mortgages and car loan's;:
or you might not be approved foi-
new credit.
The exact scoring formula is
not disclosed, but certain factors
are' known that affect a credit
score. Your payment history,
amount of debt and the types of
accounts you hold are all taken
'into account when your credit
score is calculated. The length of
your credit history also plays, an
important part; the longer your
history the better.
*A better score could mean big
.savings. The difference of one per-
centage point in interest on *a
S150.000 mortgage means a $1000
savings every morith. That adds
up to S36.000 over the life of the
loan. That calculation compares a
6.5 percent interest rate to a 7.5
percent interest rate .on a 30 year
S loan.
If your credit score is 700 arnd
up, most lenders will give' you an
"A" rating. This is considered an'
excellent score and you will havee,
Access to the best interest rates.
A score, of 600 to 699 is con-
sidered good and most leaders
S will give you a "B" rating. You
might still qualify for good interest
rates. but you will most likely not
* have access to the lowest rates
offered.
500 to" 599 ineans you've
probably had some past due pay-
ments or may have an accounting .
Collections. Most lenders will giv;e
you a C" rating and you will most
likely have to pay at least two per-
centage points more than people
-with excellent credit.
'A score of 499 and below
means you. may have had liens
against your property. or lender
may have sued you or foreclosedl
on your property. You might still
be eligible for a loan. but the rates
may not be favorable.
