Catfish


Classic


Festival.


Fri &
by Tim Croft


The dog days of summer sig-
nal that it's catfish time again in
Wewahitchka.
And if chasing the whiskered
verterbrates down the river does-
n't hook you, there'll be plenty, to
keep the little shavers, as'well as
some of the larger variety, enter-
tained at Lake Alice Park.
"The' idea is :to call the week-
end the Catfish Classic Weekend,"
said Bud Eicens, a member of the
Friends of the Library whJch oper-
ates the festival side.
"The festival encompasses the
same thing as the Tupelo Festival
in the spring. but even bigger.
With the rides, a band, entertain-
menrt, I hope we pull in more peo-
ple here."
Those rides, will be part of a
carnival, put on by the Phoenix
C.arrousel Co., which will rise
along the shores of Lake Alice,
complete with ferris wheel,
carousel and rides for the kids."
"The carnival is the thing that
makes it unique, particularly for
the kids," Eicens said.'
Things get started at Lake
Alice 5-9 p.m. CDT with barbecue
and music from the band Fleet-
water.
They rev up again at 9 a.m.
Saturday and last until 2 p.m.
In addition to the carnival,
there will be classic and custom
cars on display, boats and trailers
and plenty of arts and craft ven-
dors and entertainment from local
artists.
'The festival is part of the
whole thing we set up to make it a
S family-style event," said ,Don
Minchew of the Catfish Classic
and Festival. "I wanted a big
weekend for the whole family."
And it's August, which is.
national Catfish Month, so the
centerpiece for all this fun and
frolic is the fourth annual Florida
Catfish Classic..
The 24-hour tournament is
sponsored by the Wewahitchka
Search and Rescue and City of
Wewahitchka Employees' Club.
Entry fee is $45, per person
and each entrant receives a hos-
pitality pack, which includes
munchies, drinks and a "Florida
Catfish Classic" cap.
Fishing begins 4 p.m. CDT
Friday at Gaskin Park.
Competition .for cash prizes
for the first five places will take
place in two categories: flathead
and channel catfish.
Channel catfish will be
released after weigh-in..
Anybody catching a fish larg-
er than the state record, current-
ly 48.5 pounds, will be awarded a
a grand prize of a new extended-

Gulf to Bay Highway and Gulf Coast Parkway Top Commission Agenda


Pg. / Gulf County Commissioners
heard Richard Williams, Director
Pg. 9A of Opportunity Florida, and
Rosemary Woods, representative
Pg. 8B with PBS&J study group, give an
update on the Gulf to Bay
Roadway and the Gulf Coast
Parkway.
They-gave an overview of the
project Development and Environ-
mental Study being conducted in.
N the conceptual stages of the Gulf
to Bay Highway, as well as out-
lined the process involved in the
corridor feasibility study %for the
Gulf Coast Parkway.
.A,, Atime line of up to 18 months
I was given for two roadway studies "
to be completed and, a series of
public meetings and, in the case
of the Corridor Feasibility study,
/ public workshops will be sched-
uled as part of the studies. Those
public meetings will be advertised
later this year when the times,
dates, and place of the meetings
have been established. ,
& i These two roadways have
i been touted as necessary for'the'
improvement of traffic corridors
needed to bring economic devel-
1 opment to Gulf County.
Roadway infrastructure has
been stressed as a major hin-
drance for economic development
by the .Gulf County Economic
at Development Council.
The Port Authority has also
called for a need to improve road-


way corndors.
The corndors will also help
improve traffic how as residential
and tourist related developments
continue to expand within Gulf
County.
Woods pointed out that the
briefing was -the first phase of a'
long process as thetwo studies
get underway.

Early Numbers Strong


for Gulf School District


by Tim Croft .
The early numbers are adding
up quite nicely for the Gulf Coun-
ty school district.
Enrollment at the district's
six schools is higher than district'
officials estimated over the sum-
mer and are in fact identical to
projections submitted to the state
last year for budgetary purposes.
Total enrollment, including
disabled pre-K students, is at
2,100, the exact figure on which
the state based the district's
funding for the 2002-2003 school
year.
During the summer, district
officials feared that enrollment
could drop some 30-35 full-time
equivalent students below that
benchmark, but those concerns
have proved, thus far at least,
unfounded.
"We're 'looking better, but ve
need more kids," said Superinten-
dent Jerry. Kelley at Tuesday's
regular monthly meeting of the
School Board.
"We'd like to see 25 or 30
more kids."
Enrollment is critical because
each full-time equivalent student
carries roughly $5,000 into dis-
trict coffers.
As enrollment drops stu-
dent numbers have eroded in the
district the past few years the
.amount of state dollars coming to
the district under Florida's com-
plex funding formula for public
schools drops correspondingly.
The enrollment numbers, and
in turn state funding amounts,
are surveyed and adjusted several
times during the school year.
The district got a small boost
by the number of students choos-
ing to leave Franklin County
schools heading west.
The district has some two
dozen children from Franklin
County, with 18 of those students
new to the district.
One reason cited by several
parents in correspondence with
the district is the arrival in
Franklin County of a charter


school.
Charter schools receive
public funds, but operate inde-
pendent of many state, regula-
tions. .
The charter school is per-
ceived by some as bleeding badly-
needed, dollars from existing
Franklin County public schools.
"I hate to see that (exodus)
continue,",. Kelley said. "1 don't
think that's good for either dis-
trict.
"I don't think it's an issue for
us. It's much more of an issue for:
them. It's a problem for them and
I don't like to see us add to their
problems."
There are also four students
coming in from Calhoun County
and nearly 70 from Bay County,
almost all from the Mexico Beach
area, which has year in and year
out sent dozens of children to
nearby Gulf County schools.
The enrollment breakdown by
school,, as provided by Kelley on,
Tuesday: Port St. 'Joe Elementary,
468; Port St. Joe Middle, 318;
Port St. h Joe High, 385;.
Wewahitchka Elementary, 4.98;,
Wewahitchka Middle, 175; and
Wewvahitchka High, 240.
Toss in the 16 pre-K handi-.
capped students in the district,
who bolster the ITTE count, and
the total is 2,100 on the nose.
As comparison, last year's
enrollment numbe-rs by school:
Port St. Joe Elementary, 487; Port
St. Joe Middle, 297; Port St. Joe
High, 366; Wewahitchka Elemen- "
tary, 528; Wewahitchka High,,
398.
(Last year, the middle and
high school in Wewahitchka were
combined).

day's board meeting and an ensu-
ing workshop, the School Board:

Other board members have

They have used the county's

that a minority can be elected
countywide.

rthe "Market"dg Lsfor or
Caribbean Trading Logistics Hired for J


Port St. Joe Port Authority
members are moving forwardwith
plans to bring port activity to the
Port of Port St. Joe.,
The members have contracted
with the firm Canbbean Trading
Logistics. Inc. to market the local
port. That process will involve a
concentrated effort from not only
the marketing team of Capt. Cesar
DeWindt and Ken Karpinski. but
also a partnenng with the com-
munity in idenutiing and luring
port customers.
Tuesday at noon? the team
spoke to members of the Port St.
Joe Kiwanis Club about their
task.* Port Director Tommry Pitts
was also present as .the trio was
introduced by -Port Authority
member Johanna White. '
Cesar DeWindt, .president of,
the company, stressed the impor-
tance of bnngmng customers that
fit the amenities available at the
Port of Port St. Joe. "Pustomers
that match." is how he described
this .group. "
Marketing coordinator Ken
Karpinski elaborated on this
process explaining that it involves
more than just matching the
depth of the channel and the
onshore and related support facil-
ities. Community involvement is"
also a critical ingredient in having
a successful port operation.
SKarpinsldki noted that port cus-
tomers do not want to locate in
communities that don't want
them there.
After the meeting Karpinski
and DeWindt said it could take

Wewa VFW

The Wewahitchka Veterans of
Foreign Wars and VFW Women
Auxiliary will hold its '2002. Politi-
cal Forum 5:30 p.m. CDT on
Tuesday, Aug. 27..
The forum will include all
county races' and the two city
races on the ballot next month.
The event will include a for-
malized question-and-answer for-
mat and a straw poll Voting ballot
at the end of the forum.
S The forurrm, in addition to pro-
viding the public an opportunity

or her views, is also a fundraising
vehicle for the VFW.
All candidates are asked to
give a $25 donation or more for
their participation.
Each candidate is also asked
to pay $105.50 to "The Coast"
radio station for airtime and 10

between 12 to 18 months to locate
the first port customer locally.
"But, that's not to say it couldn't
happen sooner," said.Karpinski.
The- two biggest problems
identified byh team were limit-
ed draft (which could be easily
corrected by maintenance dredg-
ing) and the fact that people in the
shipping business don't like to be
first. He stressed the phrase "test-
ed port" during conversations.
.Getting off to the right start
with the right customer and com-


munity support could be conta-
gious within the shipping indus-
try,.
Ironically, one of the major.
markets the marketing firm sees
for the port is export of agricultur-,
al goods (corn, beans, rice, etc.) to
various markets.
Just to give you an example of
the optimism the marketing team
has concerning the Port of Port St.
Joe, the number, listed on their
business card is 1-866-GO ST
JOE.

"Let's Roll" Sounds



Like a Good Idea

I was surprised to learn that the Florida State football team's
adoption of "Let's Roll" as a rallying cry could possibly draw criti-'
cism for in some way dishonoring the quote of Todd Beamer, a 9- 11
hero.
Sounds like some folks have nothing better to do than just sit
around and look for a reason to gripe. It was refreshing last week
to see written in a Tallahassee Democrat editorial by Randy Beard,
-where the Todd M. Beamer Foundation not only supports this quote
from its name, sake being used to inspire and motivate players butt
is planning to give FSU's players caps and shirts.
How many slogans and sayings do. we use like running.water
which were made by great Americans? I can see where some. appli-
cations arid commercial efforts might deserve a raising of eyebrows,
but where did this come -from?
If this was an attempt by some journalist/sports columnist to
assassinate the character of Bobby Bowden. I'm afraid these efforts
have backfired.
After looking at a copy of their schedule this year it appears
they are going to need a pretty powerful rallying enr to inspire them.



#1 Ranking Puts Us On the Map

When "Dr. Beach" proclaimed T.H. Stone Memorial St Joseph
Peninsula State Park his number one beach in America Gulf County
suddenly became a place of destination.
I've heard several stories in recent weeks where local folks have
talked to visitors and the first question they asked is "Where's the
# 1 beach at?
People are actually flocking to the area just to be able to sa'y-l
visited America's top rated beach."
Just the other day I received a National Geographic Traveler
magazine from Robert Chandler. Robert marked the page and cir-
cled the article listing the top ten beaches, complete with pho-
tographs. Right there in living color on page 49 is a view of some of
the whitest quartz crystal sand in the world.
Robert's mailing is just one of several newspaper articles, mag-
azine stories and various assorted other reports that have been sent
ici us reporting Dr. Beach's announcement. These articles have
been reported around tt globe .as- Gulf .County and .surroiinding
areas ave become the benefactor-of.this good news. '
Dr. Beach did this area a great big favor when he gave us this
designation. From now on we can lay claim to having the # 1 ranked
beach in America.
The only bad side to all of this publicity is that once you become
: I1 you're off the list! The Park has enjoyed being ranked near the
top for several years. Now it will be removed from the list and we'll
just have to savor the moment and keep reminding
everycone-"We're #1!"


He's My Favorite Columnist-

And I don't even know him
Bob Steinmetz is my favorite columnist. No, I've never met him
and would not know him if he walked right up and said hello. Just
the same, though, he's #1 on my list.
Bob resides down in Boynton Beach. FL where he writes for The
Sentry. He and my father have been passing notes as they enter
their "golden years".
Bob sent a note the other day which was a reprint from one of
his columns. He stated, "I consider The Star the best newspaper in
the state of Florida and all the other states, too."
Now you tell me-would Bob not be your favorite columnist if
you were me?


Little Mattie Brooks was the,
first, to notice it. She told her dad
who, after a quick inspection of his
own, called the chief of police.
Aaron Pinson pulled the town's
only squad car right up next to the
Brooks' corn field-this he had to
see for himself!
He wasn't alone.
News moved at an inicompre-
hensible rate' in our little commu-
nity. Near bout ee eryone in town
beat Chief Pinson to the corn field!,
Nicky Joe and Ricky QGene

Stafford had "alerted us" as they
rushed by. "It's a big circle mashed
out night slap in the middle of Bill
Brooks' cornfield!"
"Who would want to do some-
ihing that stupid?" I asked as I tied
a tennis shoe and ran at the sanie
ume. I was thinking of the .great

AJlieni' Leon. as usual. had
solved lii hii- own mind the riddle
even before v,'.e got to the Brooks'
farm.
W\(e hoit-looLed through the
fi'el 'Io where the crov.d had gath-
ered. It was the dangdest thing I
had ever seen! The corn was& all
laying down in neat rows across-an
area about the size of a baseball
infield'. The rest of the field looked
as though it hadn't' been
touched;..except, of course, where
half the town had: trampled
through to get a look for them-
selves.
We didn't know much about
forensic evidence or preserving the
crime scene back in those days.'
Heck, we' did n't 'have any .crime to
preserve.....
/ Chief Pinson pulled up a stalk
and was examining the roots like
this could have been an inside job.
Mr. Brooks was "walking oliT' f" the
distance across the mashed down
area. I couldn't tell if he was trying
to figure 'the size of whatever did
this-or 'calculating how much


corn he had lost.
Nicky .Joe kicked at a dirt clod.
"This iS no accident. You notice
that whoever. or whatever, did this
picked the outermost field from
thr Brooks' house?'
it's a perfect circle!" Anne
Alexander had appeared out of
nowhere ,.
"You can't tell that from here!
We've got to get higher."
Everyone turned, their atten-.
tiop away from the field searching
for a taller vantage point.
The Gibson silo! We took off
like scalded dogs.. The 'Gibson.
place bordered the back side of Mr.
Brooks' farm. The silo stood like a
lone-sentinel over the surrounding
hills and hollars. \Ve scampered up
the small ladder welded to, the side
of the tower. .
1. Iwas.,too slow, to get a top spot
but I '.could see the field pretty
good. It was kilmda a circle shape
but I wouldn't call it perfect. Leon
saw it little differently, "Look.how
round! (s' just the size .of a flying
saucer! I'm tellinea ou. something
landed there last night! Remember


the bnght lights aJfter supper and
the dogs barking!"
I couldn't remember any
lights... and the dogs barked all
the time....
Mr. Brooks' cornfield was the
talk of the town! A reporter from
Jackson drove all the way out to
take pictures. Dixie Faye over. at
NMaxmne's Golden Coiffure's Beauty
Salon somehow got word that Life
Magazine was going to do a cover
story on the "happeniing". .

I'VE GOT A NEW neighbor.
They've -moved into the house
Sara Johnson built, down the
alley-if there was an alley-two
doors away ,
I don't know their name, yet,
.but they came here from Atlanta,
and are going into, business. We
wish them well!
Sara- Johnson had a nice
stand of pretty pirte trees in her'
front yard, but the new owners
of her house, cut them all down
before they moved in.
*They are doing something
else, now. First thing '
They are building an out-
house which I suspect, will be a
garage.
It isn't large enough to be a
guest house but it's too large to
be a utility shed.
The new garage is being built
on the piece of ground where
Lamar Hardy had his garden,
before Sara Johnson built her
house.
Sara got married and moved
away.


neighbors spoil their car


Actually, the new' people are
back yard neighbors to Lamar
and Vivian Hardy.
THE NEW GARAGE going up
is news' to' the neighborhood.
It's a-projeqt we can watch!
It's also an oddity.
Nobody else on the street has
.an. unattached garage. They're
the first.
Everybody, else leaves their
car parked' in the driveway.
All except Bill Rich. But he
has only one car and a two stall
carport, so his car has a cover to
get under.
His boat is parked in the
other stall.


These new neighbors are
probably not familiar with how
we.ten.d our vehicles here.
Nobody, except those with
new cars, parks in a garage in
P6rt St. Joe. We don't even take
the keys out of the cars, half the.
time .
Most .people have a carport.
Some even have a garage,
although it is usually attached to
the house.
The garage may keep the cat
from lying on cars at night, but
the carport doesn't.
Leaving the car in the drive
runs the hazard of a bird leaving
its calling card, but it's likely to
be there the next. morning. It's


been a while since a. car was,
stolen in Port St. Joe.

MY NEIGHBORS' NEW'
garage looks like it will be large
enough to hold the necessary'
items: along with the' family'
vehicles.
There'll be room for the lawn,
* mower, the kids' bicycles. rolls of1
garden hose, garden tools and all
that stuff, which i.s too" good to
throw away, but which isrn' used
Anymore.
'It looks as if it: is 'going to
. even-..have an overhead storage,'
area which will give plenty of
room for those special treasures.
Or'it .could be a retreat'for:
the husband when things get too
-hot for him to stay in the house?
Maybe it's going to.be a place
to store his lawn mower. But,
he's going .to have a heck of a
time getting it upstairs.

time to watch "Hollywood

everything has to come. to a
standstill. I don't miss these two

,Even to read!
Or, eat supper.

THE NEW GARAGE is about
half finished. The walls are up
and the roof is on.
I* suppose they'll have it fin-
ished in a couple of weeks or so.
I'm getting ready for the open


house dinner celebration.
I suppose they have open
house DINNER celebrations
when they build a new garage in
Atlanta, too. They couldn't be
that much behind us in eti-
quette,
And surely they will invite all
the people in the neighborhood,
to get acquainted, and all.
I don't wish to put any
undue pressure on you Atlanta
folks, or anything.

here, of course, but it-was nice of
him to stop by. ,

Final Stage of Visioning Process for Mexico Beach


by Tim Croft
The visioning process initiat-
'ed last month in Mexico Beach
-reaches a critical juncture for
public input this weekend.
At 6 p.m. Friday and continu-
inrg from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Sat-
urday, what is known as the char-
rette process will be taken up at
the Civic Center.
In visioning parlance, the
charrette could be likened to an"
i'iclusive brainstorming session,
with citizens bouncing ideas back



'Kesle


time it was Hugh Featherstone's
wheat field. Everybody beat Aaron
Pinson to- the scene' again! Right
out in the middle of the field. the
wheat was laid- down flat to the
ground! Amazing! But it wasn't a
circle this time-there were,
straight lines. "It's an oblique
isosceles triangle."' Anne
Alexander obviously was spending
way too much time in her geome-
try'book.
S"Aliens." Leon was ure. "They
landed the saucer this time up on ,
its side!"
While the ruckus was running
wild over the latest "crop sign" I
asked -Dad what he thought. "It
sounds like something those
Gunningham boys would come up

- Dad wasn't too big on extra-
tei-restrial'. UFO's. close encoun-
ters. the Loch Ness monster, Area
51, the occult. Tarot cards. the
tooth fairy ,or any other unex-
plained phenomena.
Leroy. Blades and Curtis Ray
Clnningham were a tad on the
adventurous side to say the least!
And you give them a little time to
kill and there was no telling what
.they could come up with....

and forth in an effort to reach a
consensus on the city's future in
the coming years.
It is also the final significant
opportunity for public input
before American Consulting Engi-
neers, which was hired to facili-
tate the visioning process, brings
forth a draft plan.
"That's why it is doubly, dou-
bly important for the citizens to
attend," said Mayor Kathy Kings-
land.
"This is their time to be able

every step as they chased each

We had a couple of other
"signifngs" that summer. Someone
said the same sort of thing had
occurred near. Landshire,
England, but we.had no way of

to input what they would like. to
see happen, and what they don't
want to see happen, for their com-
munity in the next five or 10
years."
Visionling is a mechanism by
which citizens, property .owners
and city 1 officials attempt to map
out their hopes and desires for
the community looking five, 10,
15 years down the road.
It is not a binding document,
but a blueprint to the future, as
drawn by the public with .the


selling "affected" corn stalks. Miss
Esteen signed up for the "learn a
foreign language in fourteen days"
correspondence course....We_
marked it down as one of those
things that happens when' the
moon gets full and went on about
our lives.

I read in the paper just this
week that, after all these years,
they had made a movie,about Mr.
Brooks' flattened out corn field. I
hoped they used some local folks
in the production. I wondered if lit-
tle Mattie was in the opening


assistance of a consultant.

American Consulting Engi-
neers was awarded the $50,000
contract for the process.
Public meetings with busi-
ness, and property ;owners and
individual citizens, as well as the
city Planning and Zoning Board
and council, have been held in
recent weeks to flesh out commu-
nity issues and concerns.
One of those -issues surfaced
during Tuesday's regular monthly

meeting of the city council.
There has been considerable
discussion in the city concerning
residential building,, i.e. town-
homes and similar multi-family
dwellings, in general and tourist
commerical land use areas, par-,
ticularly on the west end of the'
beach.
This construction has fol-
lowed the installation of sewer
lines and while within the guide-
lines, of the city's LDR, and .comnp
plan, has generated some contro-
versy.
On one side are homeowners
in the area who see the multi-
family dwellings as depreciating
their property value and a' viola- "
tion of the original intent of the
LDR and comp plan.
On the other side are proper-
ty owners who have purchased
and.invested in land based on the
current LDR.
The council, as well as the
Plannirig andt Zoning Board, has
been asked to consider limitations
on the density of building in gen-,
pral and 'tourist commercial land
use areas.
Though there' was some brief
discussion Tuesday night, no
solution was forthcoming.
"This, is,a, community-wide
concern and through this public


meeting and the vision plan we
are hoping for a solution," Kings-
land said."
Bob Ginsberg of the Planning
and Zoning Board said,' "We
haven't come up with a definitive
plan. We don't know what the
plan will be. I think with every-
body's input we will come up with
a plan that everybody. can be
happy with."
Councilman David Thompson
' said whatever the decision of the
council, it would be reached with
due deliberation.
"We're going to look at every
avenue before we adopt a route
we are going to take," Thompson
Said. ,. .
All Mexico Beach citizens and
Property owners are strongly
_encouraged to attend this week-
end's, public vision sessions.
In other business Tuesday'
night, the council:,

Wewahitchka officials -are
forging ahead with plans to seek
federal, and state grant funding tc
extend water. and sewer service
throughout the city limits.
On Monday, city commission-
ers approved a $34,965 contract
:with Preble Rish to initiate prelim-
inary work aimed at securing
grant funding for the project. ,
"We're looking to complete.the
city's existing system." said city
manager Don Minchem. "This is
just the first step."
Currently, certain areas with-
in the city limits, such .,as Red
Bull, areas around .T.L. James
Park and on Hwy. 71 south oJ
town, are without connection to
the city system.
Preble Rish will undertake
design and engineering studies,
examine feasibility and environ-
mental issues, establish a budget
outline and prepare documents
needed for the city to apply for
''certain federal and state grants.'
The work will begin sometime
after Oct. 1.

Port Inn Wants to Recapture


Historical Sense of Early Inn


by Tim Croft
When it was built shortly
after the dawn of the 20th centu-
ry, the Port Inn served as a place
of security and comfort in a then
bustling coastal community.
Now, as economic develop-
meht figures to shake a sleepy,
town from its doldrums in the
coming years, David and Trish
Warnner,envision a restored Port
Inn as a beacon for that revital-
ization.
'"My goal is that the Inn would
become a hub "for downtown
activity," David Warriner said
recently from his office at Tapper
and'Co.
"This town has needed some-
thing like that, something to serve
as an anchor (for downtown activ-
ity )." : .,, .
.In breathing life into that
vision, the Warners seek to bal-
ance historic t iches with mod-
erri comforts.
The 13,000 square foot build-
ing', built: in 1907, and restored
after a fire razed it in the mid-
1940s, is being reshaped in the
image of the original inn.
Porch' and awnings mirror,
those e of teurn-of-the-20th-cen-
tryi structure, the building
dressed up to appear as if time
has stood still since 1907.
"I challenged my architect to
match -that architecture," David
Warner said. "For example, the
porch we put in is an attempt to
really match that (original) archi-
tecture.
"I am trying to keep as much
of the old look, the antique look,
as we can. We want to have the
modern; amenities and comfort
with a historic feel."
If history seeps, from the exte-
rior, the modern comforts 'and
changes will be evidenced from
the interior. .
A restaurant, always a fea-
ture of the Inn, is relegated to his-
tory, swept aside to make space
Sfor rooms.
C At the same time, some guest
rooms were, as Warriner put it,
"cannibalized" to provide for an
entry, hallway, bathroom, a small
gift shop and a fireplace room to
be used for socializing.
Among the 20 guest rooms
will be a pair of two-room suites,
and a family suite of two bed-
rioms sandwiching a bathioo66m:'
There vill aJso'be a handicap
ac" acessible suite and a room with
an adjoining, or companion suite.
'Room size is not important as
long. they' are comfortable .and
unique," Warriner said. 'That's
what we are locked in to doing." '
A small meeting room
upstairs seats 40-45 and could be
used to target small business
retreats or meetings or bridal lun-
cheons and the like.
The Port Inn had never had
central heat' or air, so Warriner
had a central system engineered.
which will include air handlers in
each room.
"It will be a unique system
arid comfortable;" VWarriner said.
A'A small, swimming pool for
guests will be put in behind the
building, as well as some 40-50
parking .spaces, some double-
wide to accommodate boat trail-

"We are trying to cater to the
eco-tourism of the bay as a client
base," Warriner said.
He added that the niche he
hopes to tap will also encompass
tourists coming to the area or just
passing through and people scout-
ing the area for property or a
home.
"In the city we've never had a
place you could come in and stay
for four or five days," Warriner
said. "It really is neat and is com-
ing at the right time" as the city
has made luring lodging inside
the city limits a priority in the last
year or so.
' Originally set to open next,
month, Warriner said design
changes and other obstacles have
pushed opening back at least two
months.
The hope now is to open in


time for Thanksgiving.
"We are not in a big hurry,"
Warriner said. "We've missed the
season and I'd rather do it right
than do it fast."
And doing it right means cre-
ating a bookend to what Warriner
started with the construction of
the Twins Palm Plaza at the other
end of downtown.
That bookend would also add
another block in the foundation- of
downtown rebirth evidenced on
Reid Ave, right down to the land-
scaping around the Inn.,
"I want it to be a money-
maker and it was our intent to do
a revitalization project' similar to
what we did (with Twin Palms
Plaza)," Warriner said. "We want
this to be another catalyst for the
revitalization of downtown.
"The mote we get into this,
the more excited I get."


The front porch and
facade of the renovated
Port Inn (above)- recall
the original structure
built in 1907. Window,
frames and other mate-
rials (left) await instal-
lation as interior work
picks up steam.

costs of the county incinerator.
The surtax, first passed in,
1988. is about to expire and is a,
method by which the cost of the
incinerator is borne by all the
cities in Bay County based on
population.
Kmngsland pointed out that if
the sales surtax ex-pires, it is like-
ly that the city's tipping fees, the
money paid for removal of trash
and solid waste, would double, a
bump which would have to be
passed on to citizens and proper-

Strike Force 98

is Coming
Law Enforcement agencies
across Northwest Florida are
teaming up to improve traffic
safety 6on U.S. Highway 98.
Twenty different federal, state,
county' and municipal agencies,
intent on making U.S. 98 a safer
place to drive, have formed Strike
Force 98.
Special., emphasis will be
placed on DUI, unlawful-speed,
safety belt and child restraint
violations and aggressive drivers.
Periodic intensified enforcement
events coupled with : public
notification through the media
will be used to enhance law
enforcement's ability to provide a
safer driving environment.
U.S. 98, the main traffic
corridor along the northwest gulf
coast beaches, has a reputation
for being a heavily traveled and
dangerous roadway. .A great deal
of roadway improvement is in the
process with miles of roadway
under construction, however, .
thousands move to or visit
Northwest Florida every day.
From 1999 through Jurfe,
2002, eighty-six persons have
died in traffic crashes on U.S. 98
in .Northwest Florida. In the year,
1999, nineteen lost their lives.
2000 and 20Q1 each had twenty-
four fatalities and!only i halfivay
through 2002 there already have
'been nineteen deaths in North-,
west Flonda.
The initial event of Strike Fore
98 will take place on Friday,
August 16. Strike Force 98 events
will be strategically scheduled in
the future and will be announced
by means of news releases prior to
each event.

Buccaneers.
We had two teams for 9 and
10, year old boys, the Dolphins
and Jaguars. Some 7 and 8 year
old boys went out on these teams
but, it was difficult for them to be
successful playing against boys
who were older. This year we will
have only one team for 9 and'10
year olds and a separate 'team for
7 and 8 year olds. This will give ,
the smaller, younger players a.
great opportunity to learn the
game by 'playing against their

Apalachicola. Eastpoint and
Carrabelle in league competition.

Eastpoint and Carrabelle. ,The
southern division of the New Big
Bend League will consist of
Blountstown. Wewahitchka. Port
St. Joe and Franklin County.
S:Joining the Big Bend League
will 'allow us to play against: a,
variety of local teams for
competition. We hope this will give
our young football players a better
feel fpr the game. the teams they

School From Page 1


report was a dramatic drop in
teen pregnancy, to less than 1
percent of the female teenage stu-
dent population.
For state calculation purpos-
es, that makes the teen pregnan-
cy rate in the county zero.
"Never in Gulf County have
we had a teen pregnancy rate that
low," Washabaugh said.
There were just two pregnan-
cies among the student popula-
tion last year..
Washabaugh credited pro-
grams encouraging abstinence
and educating teens about sexu-
ally-transmitted diseases, partic-
ularly an increase in student
involvement in those programs.
"This was the first year our
students have taken up the flag of
(those programs) and that's excit-
ing," Washabaugh said. "We're
very proud of the efforts of the
team."
While the number of visits to
school health rooms and the
number of ambulance calls both
declined, Washabaugh noted that
the number of complex' health
issues she and the school health
staff is dealing with are on the
rise.
Tasks such as catheteriza-
tions or monitoring 'blood-sugar'
levels signal a nationwide trend
toward more intensive tasks being
undertaken by school health
aides.
"This is the .direction school.
health is going," Washabaugh
said: "It is getting much more,
complicated. There has been-,a
dramatic increase in complicated
medical and diabetic needs."
Washabaugh noted that ,dia-
betic issues, related to poor diets
and .insufficient exercise, have
increased 100 percent in the past
three years, again reflecting ,a*
national trend in rising obesity
among children.
Approved a contract with
Take Stock in Children, Inc., to
,establish a program in Gulf Coun-
ty.
Take Stock in Children is a
scholarship and mentoring pro-
gram targeting at-risk and needy
children of middle school age.
The program identifies chil-
dren in the sixth, seventh, eighth
and ninth grades and provides
them key tools to broaden their'
horizons to consider college.


College scholarships are
secured through a form of pre-
paid tuition program, with the
children signing contracts agree-
ing to meet certain academic and
behavioral criteria through their
senior year in high school.
The children are- provided
mentoring and advocacy from
community members as they
mature.
The Take Stock in Children
program has been spreading like
kudzu throughout the state; Gulf
County is one of the last districts,
in Northwest Florida to become
involved.
"It's a win-win for the kids,"
Kelley said.
The cost to the district is neg-
ligible.
The board clarified its posi-
tion on the proposal to press legal
avenues to restore countywide
voting for board seats, while pro-
tecting the minority district. .
The proposal has been debat-
ed by the County Commission for
some time and is to go.before the,
voters this fall for a decision on
spending the money, potenUally
in the hundreds of thousands of
dollars, to overturn a consent,,
decree from a federal court that
established single-member dis-
tricts.
The board expressed its sup-
port for countywide voting "I
think it's for better government,"
said Oscar Redd but doubted
that the board would be in a pos-
tion to offer much funding for
such a court fight. .
Even if it had the money in
general revenue to devote to the
court fight. some members doubt-
ed that the district would have the
authority to spend funds in such
a manner. .
And there was no support for
any proposal to levy taxes to fund
such a court battle.
I" don't think we could justify l
spending the funds on that," said
Dr. Mary Pridgeon."!I d6n't think
the School Board has any way
under law to levy taxes to do
that." ,
Dunng the workshop the
board, was informed that the re-
roofing project for .Port St Joe
High School would cost more than
the $810,000 contracted for.
Due to design issues that
were 'unknown at the time of bid-


ding, change orders in the
contract will require spending an
additional $46,000 or so.
That would still leave the pro-
ject under budget.
Those change orders will be
taken up at the September board
meeting.
In addition, the board was
advised that it would be wise to
spend an additional $89,000 and
change on, stripping, painting,
restoring and rebuilding the arch-
es of the domes of the roof.
Board members were advised
that such work needs to be
undertaken prior to the re-roofing
and likely, should be done since
no major work had been done on
the roof since the school was built
more than three decades ago.
While such additional spend-
ing would likely exceed the state-
mandated cap on change orders
for capital projects, it seemed pos-
sible that the district could make
the changes based on an "emer-
gency" situation.

First place in the llathead cat-

catfish category first place is

There will also be door' pnzes
given away.
The event has steadily grown
since 1999, when the tournament
attracted 169 contestants and '80
boats.
Last year, 277 people and 169
boats participated.
Tournament proceeds .' go
toward scholarships to' local,
youths to continue their educa-
tional goals. "
In 1999, that meant some
$3,500 0n scholarships: last year
the total was S6.000.

Seaweed: Traveler and Protector of Young Marine Life


by Barbara Eells, wildlife
rehabilitator/turtle volunteer
The next time you take a walk
'along our beaches, notice the sea-'
weed (at. certain times) that has
washed up. Ever wonder where it
come from? Is it manatee? Turtle?
Shoal? Sargasso? Ever pick it up
and observe closely what it looks
like? What's in it or on it?
Do that sometime! You'll be
amazed!


may. be greenish-yellow, brown,
orange, or yellowish-brown in
color. Large pieces get caught up
in the Gulf Stream or other cur-
rents and depending on the vari-
ables within the currents and the
warm core rips of the water, may
end up floating into the Gulf of
Mexico in masses with smaller
pieces washing up on shores.
There the grasses will provide
food for shore birds, mammals,


food chain within a large mass of
floating algae. Some birds migrat-
ing depend upon the Sargasso Sea
and the rafts of floating sargas-
sum for rest and foraging during
their long journeys from North to
South and back. And, of course,
as it comes ashore, it becomes
part of the beach renourishment.
These grasses, also are a great
educational tool. Take a magnify-
ing glass with you to the beach or


tors ready to pounce on them as
they emerge, they need your help
to reach the sargassum grasses.


Each species of grasses has a
function on our earth, but I want
to: share with you the .wonderful
sargassum! This ,is the pnckly,.
brownish-golden grass with 'little
"floaters" that washes up periodi-
cally on our beaches in small or
large amounts.-Thrs is also the
time of the year that this particu-
lar kind washes up on shore.
SLying in quiet zones in the
Atlanti c Ocean between currents,
such as the Gulf Stream, off the
coast of the United .States and
south of Bermuda is a huge free-
floating mass of grasses called.the
Sargasso Sea. It is about two-
thirds the size of the United
States. The Sargasso Sea is made.
up of sargassum (gulliveed, sar-
gasso weed) and is one of 15
species of brown algae.
The grasses have bladders
a ndreproduce asexually meaning
that pieces that break off become
a separate plant. It is bushy and


reptiles and larger species of
marine life, i.e. crabs and fish.
;They also become material for
natural beach renourishment.
This floating habitat is vital to'
many species of animal life. Sea'
turtle hatchlings emerge from:
their net cavity, enter the water,
and swim until they reach the
sargassum floaung in the waters
offshore...a raft of sargassum.
Here, they hide, feed and grow
until approximately six months of
age when they begin to venture
from the raft. Not only is it a vital
community of survival for sea tur-
tle' hatchlings; it-is vital to tiny .
snapper, billfish, trigger-fish, jack,
dolphin and other species of fish
for growth and protection.
What do these foragers feed.
on? Tiny crabs, shrimp, mollusks,
jellyfish (which is where the sting
comes from if you brush by, it in
the water) and other creatures. All
are babies and all are part of the


when boating and gently pick up a
piece of this grass. Take a look,
and- you will see tiny organisms
living within the mass. This is a,
great learning experience and can
be a lot of fun! Remember that
seaweed, no matter what form-
but especially sargassum, houses
creatures. When the seaweed
dries out and the creatures die
within it, it does smell a-little. This
is a natural, normal process. This
is a process that mother Nature
provides for renourishing and
continuing to rebuild our
beaches. It provides a place for
sand to hold onto and for roots of
sea oats or other grasses to take
hold, thus building a due.
There is no such thing as a
clean, flat, beach! ..
Think about and compare the
natural beach development to the
machine-cleaned beach...which is
better for'our environment?
Sargassum grasses are vital
and necessary for our environ-
ment, and for bur creatures' sur-
vival.
Don't forget, now is the turtle
hatching season. Help them reach
the water safely by thinking and
remembering to turn off or block
lighting that might make a glow
on the beach or look like a moon
to them. With their natural preda-

School District Explains


Promotion, Retention Changes


The 2002 Legislature made a
major change in the promotion-
retention law affecting elementary
students ano their reading level
on the FCAT. "Any student who
exhibits a substantial deficiency,
in reading,. based upon locally
determined or statewide assess-
fnrents conducted in kindergarten
or grades 1, 2, or 3, or through
teacher observations must be
given intensive 'reading instruc-
'tion. If the student's deficiency is
not remedied by the-end of grade,
3 -s- demonstrated by scoring
level 2 or above on FCAT in read-
ing, the 'student MUST be
retained."
Previously, this law applied to
grade 4 and if students received,
Intensive reading remedation'r in
the summer, and demonstrated,
improvement, they could be pro-


moted to grade 5. Now, thereare
no provisions for summer remedi-
ation and promotion. Students in
grade 3 will be retained if they do
not score level 2 or above on FCAT
reading unless the student is
exempt from mandatory retention
for good cause. No student may be
,assigned to a grade level based
solelyon age or other factors that
constitute social promotion.
The "good cause" exemption is
limited to the following: 1) limited.
English proficient students with
less than 2 years in the ESOL pro-
gram; 2). students with an IEP1
that ndicate-s that participation
in the statewide assessment pro-
gram is not appropriate; 3), an
acceptable level of performance
on an alternative assessment'
approved by the State Board of
Education (not available at this


time); 4) student portfolio demon-
strates mastery of the SSS equal
to at least a level 2 performance
on FCAT; 5) students with an IEP
or a 504 plan which reflects
intense remediation for more than
two years, but still demonstrates
a deficiency in reading and who
were previously retained in K; 1 or
2.
The School Board approved
Student Progression, Plan estab-
lished the following promotion
requirements for the 2002-03
school year: Grades K-5 attain-
ment of passing grades for .the
yearly average in reading, writing,,
science, math, and in language
arts or social studies; Grade 6-8
must pass language arts, math,

Although designed to help
*children develop a sense of
discipline and organization,
homework can trigger a power
struggle between parent and
child. These specific tips on
helping children with their
homework also help parents
approach this task more
positively.
Set a quiet time for children
to do their homework. Parents
and children could decide
together on a particular time.
How this helps the child:
Child is less likely to rush
,through homework assignments;
television viewing will be
controlled.
Help children complete one
or two examples in homework,
not every problem or question.
When a child turns in homework
that was done accurately, the
teacher assumes the child
understands the material.'
How this helps the child:
Child gets some attention ,from
the parent, but. also develops.
independence in completing
projects on his/her own. Teachers
see the mistakes a child makes on
homework and appropriately
chart the child's progress.
Help children organize a
time frame for difficult
homework and long-term
projects. Science projects and
term papers cannot be done,
overnight. Difficult homework
may, require structuring more

study breaks: and may need to be
done early in the evening when
the child is more rested..
How this helps the child:
Child learns how to pace
himself/herself in relation to
ability and goals; learns how to
organize time and complete work
in stages.
Reduce the stress in a
child's life. Some children have
so many extra-curricular activ-
ities that they are too tired or
distracted to do homework.
How this helps the child:
Child learns how to avoid burnout
and overload; child has enough
energy to complete homework
accurately, and has some free
time to relax.
Recognize the limits of your
patience. Neither the parent nor
the child benefits from .tense and
negative feelings that arise from,
impatient parents trying too hard
to help their children with
homework. If necessary, hire a
tutor.
How this helps the child:
Child 'sees that the parents
recognize pei-sonal. strengths and
weaknesses; the relationship
between parent and child is
saved; child performs better on
school assignments.
Use a non-threatening
approach: Children make
mistakes in homework. Ask the
child how he got the answer
rather than supplying the correct
answer.
How this helps the child:
Child becomes more secure in his
own ability; parents are thought
of as encouraging and supportive
instead of threatening,
Support the teacher. When
there are problems with the.
amount or type of homework
make an :appointment with the
teacher to discuss the issue.
How 'this helps the child:
Parents and teachers work
together to help children learn
and grow in a positive direction. .
When homework is con-
sidered part of the daily routine.
and is handled positively and
honestly, parents and children
can appreciate its usefulness.

:Letters to the

Bay St. Joe is
First Class
Dear Editor:.
I would like to make a state-
ment of facts regarding the ani-
mosity continually being directed
at Gulf County and in particular
the Bay St. Joseph Care Center.
The state monitors these facil-
ities. The agency for health care
administration in Tallahassee
prints a book listing facilities that
are sub-standard and on a watch
list. Gulf County, unlike Bay
County, does not have any/of the
ninety-four nursing homes in this
book (that is available for all to
see) as being sub-standard.
A' recent newspaper article
state that our nursing home had
numerous patients being
restrained- but failed to say that
even bed rails to keep people from
falling out of bed are considered a
restraint.
I have had my wife in our
I nursing home for ten years and
duringg this time have spent an
average 'of' five hours per day
observing not only her care but
also other patients'. I feel this
qiu.alifies me to speak with some
authority. Even tho' my wife has
been bedridden for years and
unable to move, she hasn't had
bed sores or any such problems;
this speaks well of her care.

Grant to Address
Shortage of
Librarians
The Institute of Museum and

nearly two-thirds of the nation's
practicing librarians will retire by
2019. ": .
The Florida State University
School of Information Studies has
been 'awarded a three-year,
$482,780 grant from the Institute
of Museum and Library .Services
to develop a model for 'recruiting
and teaching future libraryand
information science educators.
The grant will fund a project that
will help replenish the inadequate
supply of library and information
.science (LIS) faculty :. ,-
FSU will work in collaboration
with the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaigri and the
.University of Washington' to
develop" "Project Athena." an
adaptable: model ', for the

Carpet for
Cleaner Air
Maintaining good. indoor air
quality- in the home and work-
place is an important step in'
encouraging good health and
reducing:' allergens. Because we
spend 90 percent of our time
indoors, .we must do everything
possible to improve the quality of
the air'we breathe.,
What affects our indoor air
quality?
Interior building materials
like wood, particle board arid lam-
inates, furniture and wall cover-
ings, people and pets, cleaning
substances, the condition of heat-
ing and air conditioning, life activ-
ities like smoking and cooking,
dust and dust mites, and of
course the outdoor air.
Carpet's .holding characteris-
tics actually make it a floor cover-


ing of choice for allergy sufferers.
House dust, pollen and dust
mites are a constant challenge in
the home. They are found in the
highest concentration in mat-
tresses and bedding. The key. in
preventing reactions to these pol-
lutants is to. keep the allergen
particles from getting into the
breathing zone.
Gravity causes airborne parti-
cles to fall to the floor and the
benefit of a carpeted floor is that
the dust, dirt, and particles are
retained in the carpet until they
can be removed by vacuuming. It
is the airborne particles that
affect those sensitive individuals,
not the particles that are held in
the carpet. Therefore, the holding
characteristics of carpet, as com-
pared to a smooth surface floor,
keep particles from circulating
around in the room due to foot
traffic and airflow.
Vacuuming is the single most
effective and economical means, of
keeping floor coverings clean and
removing dust and allergens from'
the indoor environment. It has
been proven that 90 percent to 95
percent of all dry soil by weight,
can be removed 'from carpet by


routine vacuuming. In addition to
vacuuming, keeping the humidity
low (below 55 percent) and using
heating, air conditioning and pos-
sibly a dehumidifier is important.
,In an office environment, dust,
pollen, skin particles and other
office material particles circulate
in the air and must also be
removed by routine maintenance
and effective ventilation.
The key, however, to removing
the particles collected in the car-
pet is to vacuum routinely with a
high quality vacuum cleaner that
has adjustable brushes and bears
the Carpet and Rug Institute's
Green Label. Those commercial
-and residential vacuum cleaners
have passed stringent tests .in
three areas: soil removal, contain-
ing the dust within the filter bag
and maintaining the carpet's
appearance.
According to many allergists;
the real cure for sniffing, sneezing
and wheezing may be as simple as
consistent, regular; house clean-
ing.
Common household allergens
such as dust, dust mites, mold,

Veterans' Property Tax Exemption Increases


State agencies are working
with Florida veterans' associa-
tions and property tax adminis-
trators to implement a new state
law that will increase the exemp-
tion from property taxes for veter-
ans with service-connected
disabilities from $500 to $5,000.
The Florida Department of
Revenue and the Florida
Department of Veterans' Affairs
are seeking assistance from veter-
ans' organizations in urging dis,-
abled veterans to make sure that
they take advantage of the addi-
tional tax savings., The increased
exemption applies only to home-
stead property (the home that the
veteran lives in); The exemption is
available to any veteran who lives
in Florida, who owns homestead
property, and who has a service-
connected, disability of from 10 to
90 percent. State law already pro-
vides a full, homestead 'property
tax exemption to veterans who are-
100 percent permanently and
totally disabled.
The additional tax savings
was made possible by HB 165,
adopted in the 2002 Legislature.
The bill was sponsored by Rep.
Jerry Paul, R-Port Charlotte, Rep.
Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey,
Rep. Irving Slosberg, 'D-Boca.
Raton, and Sen. Locke Burt, R-
Ormond Beach
Many county appraisers'
offices have indicated that this
increase in the exemptions will
automatically be granted.
However, those veterans- currently'
receiving: the $500 exemption
should contact their county
appraiser's office between
January and March 2003 if.they
have not received notification
from their appraiser's. office ,by
then. Also, veterans who are not

I Buffalo Chicken Cornbread
with Blue Cheese Mayonnaise
captured first prize in the 2002
'f National Cornbread Cook-Off in'

an easy to make bleu cheese
dressing.

FiveStar stainless steel range, and
a specially designed cast-iron skil-
let tiara during award ceremonies.

' of Fibre and .Polymer Research,
1 found that there 'is no link
between carpet usage and the
S 'incidence of asthma, or allergies.
a What they did find was that even
e though carpet usage had steadily
. decreased since 1975. the occur-
e rences of allergic reactions in the
general population had increasedd,
Yr In .some. situations. people
have perceived that carpet may,
have a negative impact ;n the
t indoor air quality. It has been,
: shown--that removing carpet does'
S not impact the amount of allergies,
e or asthma.
Carpet itself is not a source of.
mold and mildew without dirt and
moisture. Visible mold is a mani-
festation of inadequate mainte-
nance. excess moisture problems
and poor HVAC 'ventilation.
Eliminating sources of excessive
moisture, such as water leaks,
moldy I-HVAC ducts and humidity
problems caused by turning off
air conditioning in the night were
steps that needed to. be taken
al one with a concentrated effort to
nt reduce humidity in the building.


Meanwhile, in a small bowl
combine Blue Cheese Mayonnaise
ingredients; mix well. Cover and
refrigerate until ready to serve.
Melt 1 T. butter in a 10-1/2
inch cast iron skillet over medium
heat. Cook and stir onion and cel-
ery in the butter until soft.
Remove vegetable mixture from
skillet. In same ,skillet,, melt
remaining 2. T. of butter over
medium heat. Add the chicken
mixture.-Cook, spurring frequently.
for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low
while preparing topping.
In medium bowl, combine
vegetable mixture and remaining
Cornbread Topping ingredients;
mix well. Spoon evenly over the
chicken mixture. Bake -at 4250F.
for 15 to 20 minutes or until top-
ping is golden brown and set.
Cut into wedges and top each
