Signs to


Lead Way


To Business


District
by Tim Croft .


-Plant a seed,, watch it blos-
som. '
That pretty much describes
what some local merchants and
an interested legislator accom-
plished with a little dialogue.
During a recent get-acquaint-
ed tour of Port St. Joe, Rep. Allah
Bense,- R-Panama City, heard-
from several merchants aboutthe
need for signs directing tourists
and motorists on local highways
to the downtown area.
"People have come in and
they've traveled through Port St.
Joe for years and didn't know
Reid Avenue was here." said Ben
Gibson of Reeve's Furrnture and
Refinishing.
Melita Davis of Mebta's Bou-
tique agreed.
=Nobody'knows this i, down-
town." she said. "Everybody
thinks the only shops are on
I (U.S.) 98. Tourists just pass on
through. If we are going to be a
tourist town they should know we
are here."
Or as John Reeves summed it.
up, "The best kept secret in Port
St. Joe is Reid Avenue."
; A push to get such signs has
been on the agenda for some
downtown merchants since the
late 1980s, said Wayne Taylor of
the St. Joe Furniture Co.
'"We've been trying to get
something good put up for years,"
he said, noting that the current
small green "Business District"
signs on either endof Reid Ave.
are insufficient.

In This Case, the
Millage Rate Is

Actually Less
The City of Port -St. Joe is
holding the line on village rates
which will result in a reduction of
tax dollars generated.
As previously reported in The
Star the city lost approximately
$33 million in property values
over the past year because of 'a
reduction in value of the Smurfit-
Stone paper ,mill site. This
equates to a reduction in rev-
enues of about S225.000.
City Clerk Pauline Pendarvis
said'the commission is proposing
to hold village rates at last year's
level (6.67mills) in spite of the loss
in tax dollars. She pointed out the
board is currently evaluating a
change in garbage and 'trash
pickup and is advertising for pro-
posals for contracted garbage
pickup. .
Commissioners, believe they
can contract out garbage service
and have .enough remaining revw
'enues to finance trash pickup
without. raising rates from the
current cost of $16 per month for
residential service.
Pendarvis stated that the
board and city departments have
been preparing for this day for a
few years. It was obvious that this
day was coming so the belts of the
budget have been gradually tight-
ened during this time frame.
The City of Port St. Joe will
hold its first budget hearings on
Tuesday 'evening, September 10,
at 5:01 p.nm.

economy is steadily moving in the
right direction.
That according to a study of
economic indicators for the year's
first quarter done by the Haas
Center for Business Research and
Economic Development at the
University of West Flonda.
On the job front. Gulf Coun-
ty's unemployment grew slightly
dunng the first quarter of 2002
compared to the same quarter the
year before.
But that bump, from 5.8 per-
cent to 6.9, should be considered
against the backdrop of statewide
trends, which saw Florida's
unemployment jump from 3.96
percent to 5.33 percent for the'
same periods.
Additionally. the county's
labor force grew by 3.92 percent
and the county added 117 new

region. .
Overall, in the region. unem-
ployment dipped slightly from
4.40 to 4.38 percent.
"In general, the Northwest
Florida region has been bucking
the Florida unemployment rate
trends" because of the lesser
impact of the Sept. 11 attacks hdd
on its tourism industry," wrote
researcher David Truax. "As pn- ,
marily a driving destination, the
region has suffered less from the
disruption in air traffic."
"One apparent explanation
for the increase in unemployment
rates across the state and nation
ts that despite an eager labor
force looking for employment,
employers remain wary of accom-
modating them possibly due to
uncertainty over the strength of
the economic recovery."

Taxable sales were 818,4 mil-,

year. a 10.7 percent increase from
the S16.6 million of the same
period in 2001.
That percentage increase
'trailed only Washinegton County in
the region. Washington's increase
,in seasonable adjusted taxable
sales was 17.7 percent.
It was also well above the
increase across the region of 1.7
percent, making Gulf one of 12
counties in the region reporting a
strong surge in taxable sales.
On the flip side, however, tax-
able sales for the second quarter
are estimated to slide 1.8 percent
in the second quarter of the year
compared to the same period in
2001.
That figure is an estimate and
will be updated when actual data
are received, the report by
. researcher Jian Wang indicated.

Public Invited toTest




17 New Voting Machines


by Tim Croft
With ballot time just around
the corner. Supervisor of Elec-
... ...pns Linda Gnriffin is preparing for.
a sneak peak at her new scanning
machinery.
The Gulf County Canvassing
Board will meet at Griffin's office
at 10 a.m. Sept. 6 for a test run of
the new voting equipment.
While in large counties, only a
percentage of the machines are
tested. Grinffin said she %will test all
17 of her new scanners.
'We will test them all." Griffin
said. "The public has a nght to be
there and they can request you to
test any machine."
The test will be done with a
"test desk" of ballots sent to Grif-
fin reflecting all the races on the
ballot in the county.
A software card programmed
for that test deck will be plugged
into each machine and to gauge
the accuracy of the scanners,
comparing the machine totals to
what the software says they
should be.
Once the machines are
deemed ready, voters can roll into
' the Elections office if they choose.
"Once the: equipment has
been tested and is accurate. they
can vote," Griffin said. '"That's
called early in-office voting."
The in-office voting is, a wrin-
kle added to the elections process
to make it even easier for voters to
be heard by ballot.
The' County Canvassing"
Board 'will re-convene 1 p.m.
Tuesday, Sept. 10 --Election Day.


The canvassing board is com-
prised of Griffin, Capt. Joe Nugent
of the Sheriffs Department stand-
ing in fot County Judge Fred Wit-
. ten," who is '-6n"i'-fe ballot, adn-i
County Commission chairman
Carmen McLemore.
That 'meeting is to canvass
the absentee, ballots that have
submitted prior to election day
and to answer any questions from
the public.
"I have to notify the candi-
dates of that meeting and it's
open to the public, and especially
candidates, for canvassing the
absentee ballots because they can
challenge any of the ballots," Grit-
fin said.
Absentee ballots received
prior to Sept. 10 %will be available
for review, by the public from 9
a.m. until noon that day.
Items such as signatures., wit-
ness signatures and so forth will
be checked to determine if the
ballot is legal.
S If there is any question we
put it aside and the can',assing
board will consider it later." Grinf-
fin said.
Once those ballots have been
.reviewed, they will be processed
and tabulated.
Absentee ballots received
after noon on Sept. 10 may be
examined from 5-7 p.m. as they
are received for processing.
No totals from those ballots
will be tabulated until the polls
close at 7 p.m.
"For a primary we've had a lot
of absentee activity," Griffin said.
- ..Griffin said that given, the.


number of county races on the
ballot, as well as some key
statewide primaries for governor
and attorney general, turnout .
"su'T~le pretty solid.
'I think for this primary we'll
have a good turnout." Griffin said.
"I would guess it will be some-
where around 50 percent the way
the candidates are working this
election."

end the same way. they started:
engaged and proactive about the
future of their city.
Beginning Friday evening and
continuing throughout Saturday;
dozens 'of residents worked with a
design team on what is known in
visioning jargon as a charrette.
A word co-opted by architec-
ture schools, charrette is putting
ideas to paper at an accelerated
pace, a brain-storming session in
which concept becomes two-
dimensional vision.
Given the draft product
offered Tuesday night by the
design team from Correa Valle
Valle Inc., out of Coral Gables, the
process was a success.
"They came, up with great
ideas and had some 'fun," said
Brian Mirson of American Con-
sulting Engineers, the consul-
tants hired by the city to facilitate -
the visioning 'process.
Correa Valle Valle, or CVV,
was brought in by American Con-
sulting to lend their expertise in
urban design to the team.
"They were very professional,"
said resident Dana Palmer. "We
were lucky."
Boiled down, the charrette
process put dozens of citizens into


S.four teams, each -working toward
consensus on priorities and con-
cerns regarding what their city
should look like in the next five,
10 years and beyond.
While there were differences
between the plans, common
threads emerged that could be
woven into a community fabric.
"People are really getting into
this.," said- Mayor Kathy Kings-
land. "They are giving a lot of
input. They are coming up with
great ideas, community-wise and
environmentally."
Protecting the natural beauty
of Mexico Beach was a clear prio6r-
ity. Green spaces, hiking and bik-
ing trails and landscaping within
the city limits were deemed
important, as was preserving the
.beach and dune systems. :
The primary focus, as would
be expected, was the future of
U.S. 98, particularly given the
high likelihood that the highway
will be re-routed around Mexico
Beach, at least in the not: too dis-
tant future..
Proposals to re-route U.S. 98
are currently in the design and
engineering stage and the exact
path of relocation is still quite

EDITORIAL OMMENTARY Hunker Down With Kes byKesleyColbert
TOR He HASNT Left The BuildCOLUMNing!


WILLIERAITTSEY, EDITOR He HASN'T Left The Building!


Concerning school



vouchers and other



government monies

Star Advertising Director Ron Isbell 'and I were discussing the
recent court ruling concerning school vouchers, and Ron followed the
conversation with a written opinion of his thoughts.
After reading his comments, I decided to just yield my editorial
space to him this week.. .
Judging the Judges
Florida churches would be seeing less cash as the collection plates
get passed if congregations follow the.orders of the appellate court.
The court last week said that Gov. Jeb Bush's plan to. issue vouch-
ers to families with children in under-performing schools is unconsti-
tutional in Florida. Florida's law allowed families to use the vouchers to
send their children to non-public schools. Some of those private
schools are church-run or church-affiliated. The court says that link to'
churches is a "no-no". '
Florida's constitution specifically prohibits church or religious sup-
port by the state government, therefore no money that originates from
state funds can go to churches, the court said.
Gov.: Jeb Bush has vowed t6 fight the decision, which overturned a
lower court ruling that let the voucher plan stand. Federal courts have
also, so far, upheld the Florida law in tests against the U.S.,
Constitution. Florida's public school system and its teachers' union are
opposed to the voucher plan, saying it will further weaken public
schools. -
Bush..has argued logically that the state is not contributing public
funds to churches. Instead, he says, the state funds are going to the
families. If the families choose to send their children to a church-sup-
ported school rather than public school or a non-church-affiliated pn-
vate school, that is their choice, he said.
But the court has argued that even this indirect route travelled by"
public money violates the constitution. It's still public money going to
churches.
If that's the case, should families who receive state support in any'
'form be worried that an officer of the court will be watching while the
collection plate is passed and haul them off to jail if they drop any of
those "state funds" into the plate?
More on Schools
One of the newspapers we read here at The Star asked some folks'
in their town what-they expected from their schools. The answers sur-
prised me. Only one of the four folks questioned gave an answer that
sounded like "education'.
The other three were wanting schools to teach their children things
itke discipline and social skills and morals. Those are things I learned
at home. At least those were things that were taught in our home. I
doubt parents of the children of the fifties would have even thought
about turning those duties over to people they didn't know. ,
'One of the four people questioned replied "reading, Twriting and.
arithmetic". Predictably he appeared to be.in his seventies while the,
other three were in their twenties or thirties. .
Our schools are never going to perform at the levels we ask of them
if state tests are based on math and comprehension (reading) and com-
munications (writing) but our teachers are busy teaching manners and
morals.

A FEW PENNIES
While looking through some information I received from the James
Madison Institute I ran across the following thought for the day and
thought you might enjoy. "I was taking it easy. lying on the grass and
looking up at the clouds when I. decided to talk to God. '",
"God," I said. "How long is a million years?"
God answered, "In my frame of reference. it's about a minute."
Then I asked, "God, how much is a million dollars?"
God answered, "To me, it's a penny.
So I asked, "God, can I have a few pennies?"
God answered, "In a minute." :

week than I did when he was alive!'
That's really quite remarkable

doing a good job.... Cable television,

'movies.... Older folks that grew up'
with hitm are well noted for clinging
to the past.... No one has ever


come along to replace him.... Plus,
I saw him just the other day
pumping gas at Wal-Mart... And he
was at a pre-season football game
in Miami..... And he did a floor
show in Las Vegas ..... And he was
at the grand opening of the Horace
Champ Hardware Store in
Omaha.... And, ESPN caught him
at baseball games in Philadelphia
and Boston, and Chicago-all on
the same day....
He is the king of rock and roll'
without a doubt! But the amazing


thing is he could sing a country
song as well as anyone. He could
do rhythm and blues like B. B.
King or John Lee Hooker. His
Christmas songs'are now yuletide
standards. And he quite possibly
was the best gospel singer since
King David.
I never heard him call hogs.
But, let me tell you, I bet he could
have had sows jumping over each
other to get up to him....
I remember first hearing Elvis
on WHBQ radio out of Memphis in
1955. He wassinging an old Bill
Monroe tune entitled Blue Moon of
Kentucky. But let, me fell you, he
didn't,do it exactly the way Bill did
it! He had us all patting ou.r feet.
And then we heard That's All Right
and we really' got 'to moving

'Course, we didn't gei to move
for long. Miss Emily Parkinson
stood up in church in March of
1955 and declared something had
to be done with this devil singing,

ant that was leading our young.
people down the road to perdition!
Me ,and Ricky Gene Stafford
and LaRenda Bradfield and Parm
Collins sat over in a corner pew
and scratched our heads. We liked
Elvis a whole lot. We could tell that
Miss Emily was dead set against
him. But she was talking a mite
over our heads. We had never
heard the word gyrating, we hadn't
a clue what miscreant meant and
the only thing we knew .about
perdition came from Brother
Hatcher's sermons-we didn't
know exactly where it was but it
was a place to be avoided at all
cost.
It took a pretty special person
to cause all the stir Elvis wrought
on the scene in 1955. They had
PTA meetings about him. Mayors
ran for re-election on an anti-Elvis
campaign.
T.V. would only film him from
the waist up. Emily Parkinson-
looking people set up picket lines
around record stores. Parents
- oldtcked'reenage daughters ii their
rooms.
Hundreds of chaperorAes
began showing up at sock hops to
"monitor" the music. Whew! You
could only take .so much of Doris
Day and Pat Boone! .

I spent that summer practic-
ing my gyrating. I bought a tran-
sistor radio. I tried to grow side
burns-which was a pretty tough
chore for a ten year old! We turned
up the collars of our shirts. And we
were all weanng as much pink and
black as we could find.
: We weren't trying to defy the
anti-Elvis, grown-ups. 'We weren't
trying to make a statement". We
certainly weren't 'trying ato be the
first on the heinous road to perdi-
tion. We simply found.,a guy that
didn't sound like Frank Sinatra or
Tommy Dorsey or Rosemary

barrel. They come in and work
hard and we ought to pay them
better than we pay them."
The insurance proposal, from
the union mirrored that proposed
for teachers; an increase in the,
district contribution and partici-
pation in the state plan.
The union estimated its pro-
posal would cost .the district
roughly $311,557..
As opposed to the negotia-
tions for teachers, the union is
bargaining the entire master
contract for the district's 120 or,
so support personnel this year..
Those negotiations made
some headway Thursday night,
but the sides ,remain.apart on a
variety of issues, :such as disci-
pline guidelines, work done off the
clock and political activity on
school grounds.


Signs

-From Pg.1

County Chamber of Commerce
said Chamber members were
talking a year or so ago about the
need for signs directing people to
historic downtown.
Bense took the request to the
Department of Transportation
and the DOT in turn studied the
matter.
That study determined that
placement of signs on Hwy. 71
and U.S. 98 was appropriate and
doable.
According to Tommie
Speights. DOTs District 3 infor-
mation director. four signs will be
placed on U.S. 98 and Hwy. 71
directing motorists to the his-
toric/business downtown district.
One will be placed 300 feet
from the intersection of U.S. 98
and First St.. alerting motonsts
entering town from the west.
Another will be placed 300
feet from the intersection of U.S.
98 and H-w'\. 71 to attract the
attention of tourists conung in
from the east.
The other two signris ill be
placed on Hwy. 71. 300 feet on
either side of the intersection with
Reid Ave.. facing both northbound
and southbound traffic.

"This is a real good thing for
the merchants," said Marie Todd
of the Portside Trading Co. "It Will
help everybody down here."
Gibson concurred. ,
"It will be wonderful," he said.
"The thing that impressed
me," Reeves said, "was that Allan
Bense came to the office, listened
to my concerns and the need fqr
the signs and then. acted on it."'.
The signs, Speights said, will
be "guide" signs, with down-
town/historic district printed, on
them and an arrow pointing
motorists toward downtown.
The signs will be 4-feet by 1-
feet, Speights said, noting that
the signs must conform to DOT
guidelines .
Once the signs have been
ordered .from thp DOT's sign-
maker in Lakeland, Speights said,
turnaround time should be about
three to four weeks.
"Gulf County has "done' a
spectacular job recovering from a
series of economic blows over the
past six years," .Bense said. "It
just makes sense. that the Depart-
ment of Transportationi and the
state, would want to help econom-
ic growth. not thwart it.
S"I'm convinced that Gulf
'County's economy is on the cusp'
of a total recovery. Getting these
signs is another step in the right
direction."

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, AUGUST 22, 2002 PAGE 7A


Awards

of Port St. Joe, won first.place for
best black and white advertise-
ment for resale real estate.
The real estate ads competed
against daily and weekly newspa-
pers up to 10,000 circulation. The
Star's circulation is 5,000.
An ad campaign for Gulf
Pines Hospital for its Blue Cross
Blue Shield program earned
another first place award for
Success Story of an Ad.
This category was open to all
non-daily newspapers in Florida,
regardless of circulation size.
The Star was also awarded a
first place hoqror for Best Use of
Small Space fdr an ad created for
Jones Tire of Wewahitchka.
In competition.with newspa-
pers its own size The Star earned
second place honors for "Shark
Pride", a signature page promot-
ing Port St. Joe basketball, and
honorable mention ;for a furniture
ad created for Home Adventures
of Eastpoint and an automotive
ad created for' Blountstown
Motors.
These advertising awards fol-
low on the heels of a second place
award for environmental reporting
earned by The Star for a story
about a sea turtle rescue.
Editor/Publisher Willie
Ramsey stated, "I think it is
'absolutely incredible that we've
had such success in_ this contest.
This is a testimony to the exper-,
tise of our advertising staff at The.
Star and a working partner-
ship/trust relationship with
advertisers.

From Page 1


The Star received a total of
seven awards while competing
against many larger publications
(daily, semi-weekly and weeklies)
across the state. We are proud of
this accomplishment and look for-
ward to the challenge of improving
upon this effort during the cur-
rent year..
Advertising Director Ron
Isbell said he was extremely
pleased that so many Star adver-
tisers have given the staff creative
leeway in developing advertising
programs that work.
"I'm especially proud," Isbell ,
said,. "of the real estate, hospital
and tire ads-all for very. different
reasons. Jones Tire ad proves that
a very small ad can be very effec-
tive. You just don't need a 100-
acre farm to raise a milk cow.
Jones Tire used an ad that was
appropriate "for their message
then allowed us to use that space.
effectively.
"The real estate awards were
particularly pleasing because we
are in such a'hot real estate mar-
ket, yet our market competes with
*other hot real estate markets
around the state. The competition
in this category is stiff. Again, I'm
grateful for advertisers that allow
us the .opportunity to creatively
market, their products and ser-
vices.
'To be able to take first and .
second place in. this category
while. competing against both
weekly and dailynewspapers up
to twice our circulation is an
honor."
Just like Jones Tire,
Blountstown Motors has used? a
relatively small 'ad that won, an
honorable mentiod1 in a category
dominated, by ads up to eight
times its size.
Simplicity and the idea that a
furniture ad could "sell" a lifestyle
rather than furniture' contnbuted
to the award-winiing ad for'Home
Adventures. Store owners Dave
and Belinda Cash wanted ,to cre-
ate an ad that promoted the beach'
lifestyle through home furnish-
ings from ,their store.
'"Weekly newspapers have to,
interact with the towns they
.serve,"' Isbell said, "because the
people who run weekly newspa-
pers are always involved in those
communities. So, when our' local
athletic teams do well, we want to
mark that accomplishment. Our

Traps are a danger
Dear Editor:
The State is trapping animals
on the Cape Beware-the park
has placed a number of traps in .
the first tier dunes on the beach.
There are no signs noting it is
state property, no 'no trespassing' "
signs and most, of all no sign
warning of the traps. This is a
very dangerous situation..
My wife was'walking our dog
on the beach near Rish Park early
Sunday morning. She let the dog
off the leash to run. It ran over the.
dune and she heard this blood-
curdling scream. She ran to the
top of the dune to find our dog in
a small claw trap. She was terri--
fled. The trap would not open.
She left our dog in the trap to--"
run back to the house to get me.
My wife has asthma and she was
suffering after running all the way


home. I ran to the dog, and
worked with her, and it was. all I
could, do to get her leg out of the
trap.
She met Dr. Nelson at his
office-Sheby escaped with a sev-
erly bruised and possibly. frac-
tured leg. We were lucky! -
\\e called the sheriff and he
called in the game warden. [ took,
them to the trap. They said.,it
might be on State property. They
called the park and talked with
the manager. She said they were
permitted and did put out traps to
catch and kill nuisance animals.
Park service personnel told us.
the claw trap had a 3-1/2 pound
pressure. This is not true. My wife
could not open the trap. I could
barely open it after minutes of
work with 'a crow bar-it must
,have been jammed!
What if a child got caught ins
this trap?

As 'we were standing near the
trap one of the officers tripped
another trap about 15 feet from
the original one. We had been
walking all around the area trying
to help and free our pet. We were,
lucky we did not get trapped!
I find it apalling the state puts
these traps so close .to the
beach-no markings-none what-
soever!!
If the state is going to be cruel'
enough to trap wild animals they
could at least post it!

Are You Using Your IRA Monies




to Purchase Real Estate?


According to the Investment Company Institute Research, "There are approximately two trillion dollars invested in

IRAs." Baby boomers and other wealthy people own a big bulk of this money. Most of these people have large estates,

therefore have other assets to live on, and they will end up passing their IRAs to their family members down the

road. Their family members will pay as much as 70 cents on each dollar they inherit between the estate tax and income

tax on these IRAs-can this happen to you?


Most of these people do not know they can use their IRAs to purchase real estate. It can be done 2 different ways. Real

estate can be owned within an IRA Plan, but there are restrictions and ultimately income and estate taxes will need to

be paid. However, there is a better way to use your IRA monies to purchase real estate and own it outright or you

can purchase real estate with other IRA holders and share ownership outside the IRA plan.


You-can buy a commercial building, land, second home, condominium, an office, rental property, a ranch, etc. This

approach takes a design (blueprint) that can save you thousands upon thousands of dollars in taxes and/or depreci-

ation and other write-offs throughout your lifetime.

and his team.
"Each team xwil 'be permitted
to weigh only ith heaviest fish in
each species, with points awarded
by place, starting at 100 points,
for first place.
Points across the b6ard are
,then tallied for a total, with cash
prizes awarded to the top three
teams in each division.
"This year 1.00 percent of the
entry fees go to the (top three
place winners)," Landry said. "In
each division there will be addi-
tional prize money for a slam."
The slam species, for the off-
shore division are wahoo, dolphin
and amberjack; for the inshore
they are Spanish mackerel, trout
and pompano.
"In order to qualify :our boat
r, for the slam y'ou have to catch all
three fish," Landry said.
The heaviest aggregate weight
of those three species will wii the
slam in.each division.
' The captains' meeting for the
Saltwater Slam will.,be at 6:30
p.m. EDT Friday, Aug. 30, which

Gaskin Park Renovations


Completed Just In Time


by Tim Croft
There were prizes to pur-
chase, hospitality bags to fill with
caps, munchies and drinks.
The most important prepara-
ti6ns for this year's Florida Cat-
fish Classic, though, were under-
taken to upgrade Gaskin Park.
A new floating dock, rampway
and observation platform were
just the largest components in an,
extensive and impressive facelift
given the park in advance of the'
tournament.
"I didn't think they'd get it
done in time for the tournament,"
said Wewahitchka city manager
Don Minchew. "But .they really
worked hard and did a. great job..


That county road crew' up here
did a fantastic job."
Fishermen and event direc-
tors were suitably impressed by
the work of county workers and
inmate labor details, which con-
tinued right up until the day
before the tournament.
'There was some real hard
work went into this." said director
Jim Whaley. "The catfish tourna-
ment was the impetus behind
this.
'This is the -biggest .tourna-
ment on the river and this is now
the best landing on the river, no
doubt about it.":
In addition to constructing
the 200-foot floating dock, sup-


ported by cement pilings, a ramp
system and viewing, platforms,
workers painted ,'equipment,
repaved the parking lot and made'
improvements to the' boat launch
area.
Playground equipment will be
in place soon. I
The improvements to Gaskin
Park were underwritten with a
$150,000 state park and recre-
ation grants secured by county
commissioners.,
Commissioners have secured
a second $150,000 grant for fur-:
ther improvements to the park,`
and the city has a $93,000 grant,
,in hand for improvements to Lake
Alice Park.
t .' .


A new floating dock and ramp system are just part of the improvements to Gaskin ?ark Imade possi-
ble through a $150,000 state parks and recreation grant.



31.23# Flathead Wins


Wewa Catfish Classic


by Tim Croft ...
It could be argued that stiff
and' ugly pretty is an apt descrip-
tion a flathead catfish that, has.
been out of the water for a time.,
For Keri Sumner, it describes
where to find a winning fish for
the Florida Catfish Classic.
Sumner, of Liberty County,
traveled up the Apalachicola. to
near his home to fish at a place
called Esstiffugla (re: stiff and
ugly for an old. tale about a dead
body being, pulled from the spot
hundreds of years ago). :
And lo and behold, several
minutes before 4 .a.m. Saturday
.Sumner felt the tug that would
mean.$1,500 in the bank.
"I knew where to go," Sumner
said. "You know (what you've got)
when you can't bring'him mn right
off. It took me about five minutes
to bring him in." '
Sumner's fish was 31.23
-pounds, good enough for first
place in the flathead division and
a pile of good eating for a friend
back hor e.
"I promised him I'd bring
back what I caught." Sumner
said. ''The thing is. I ain't ever got'
a fish in this tournament before.
It was a good one."
.... Sumner's good fortune wasn't
over. When the door prizes were
handed out to fishermen entered
in the tournament, Sumner's was
the first name called, winning him
a rod and reel.
Ironically, the second name
called. was that of Ron Howard,
who also finished second to Sum-


ner in the flathead division.
SSumner won a second rod
and reel as the drawings wound
down.
Additionally, having already
won the Blountstown tournament,
earlier this year, Sumner became
the first fisherman to win two of
the three major tournaments on
the river Blountstown, Bristol
and Wewahitchka in the same
year since the circuit was estab-
lished four years ago.
S"t was pretty good fishing out
there," Sumner said in something
of an understatement. .
Sumner. though. didn't bring
home the most bucks on Satur-
day.
That honor belonged to Josh
Gillis of Sneads. Gillis, with his
brother, brought in 112 pounds
dunng the Florida Catfish Clas-
sic. earning 8250 for the highest"
average poundage per boat.
Hi- total weight for the three
tournaments on the river came to,
146 pounds. the highest. com-.
bined total and worth another
S600.
S.Toss in the S750 he won with
a 29.16 flathead. good for third
place. and Gillis' haul was
81.600. ,
.In all, 257 fishermen -on 129
boats entered the 24-hour tour-
nament, which ran as smooth as
peanut butter until a thunder-
storm rumbled over the river Sat-
urday afternoon.
I Entrants came from as- far
away as Chicago. Massachusetts.
Minnesota and Wisconsin, as well

as Georgia. Alabama' and
Louisiana. ..
S' And all -told they brought
1,009 pounds of flathead catfish
to the scales. ,
"It went w well," said
Wewahitchka city manager Dori
Minchew. "It was a very success-
ful tournament. It was a major
success. Nobody who was here
could say the fish weren't here,"
'Just ask Wewahitchka Mayor
Ray. Dickes. ,
He said more than 500 catfish
plates were served at Lake Alice
Park during the day's Catfish Fes-
tival and combined with the fish
brought to the 'scales at Gaskin
'Park .he had : seen enough
whiskers to last eight lives.,
"I ate so much fish I don't
want to see a catfish for awhile,"
Dickens said; '

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY, AUG. 22. 2002 PAGE 3B


By Jennifer Bland
I can hardly believe we've
been in school for 2 weeks now.
Oh how time goes by. On the


.sports side of things: Our middle
school football signup sheet for
7th and 8th graders 'is in the
office. Participants must have a


"WHICH ONE COSTSMORE TO INSURE?"


r


current physical and signed
parent permission form to
practice/play. Guys, if you want
to play city league football come
by the office 'for a form and
information. If you want to learn
how to dance come by .the office
and pick up a form. Also, girls, if
you want to be. a city league
cheerleader, come by the office for
a form and more information.
Teacher announcements: The
Middle School will have a Book
Fair September 9-12. We need
parent/guardian volunteers. For
more info call Donna Howze at
.227-3211. Also congratulations to
Mrs. Pettie.. She wrote a -short
story called "Past Perfect" and it
was published in "Kaatskill' Life."
Mrs..Howell has informed me that
students need to start thinking
and designing their science fair
experiments.'
L.. .ost arid Found: Students,
even though it is only the second
week of school, many things have
been found: A watch, a gold lock,
a silver key on- a gold chain, a
black lunch box, and many other,
things.
As I close out this week, I
leave you with a fun fact and the
answer to' last week's question.
What was adertised as "give your;
.shelf a treat?" Answer: An Oxford
Dictionary. This week's fact is the
.i inventor 'of chewing gum: A
dentist named William Semple
intended it mainly as a means of
,exercising the jaws.
Until next time, chew a piece
'.of gum: it's proven to make the
brain work faster!


YoAstatei
You're in good hands.

-From Pg. 3
'This year is the only year I
was actually ready to come back
to school. The teachers were even
better than I thought. The first
day flew by; each class seemed
five minutes long."
-Kelly Weeks
"When I first got to school I
had forgotten where to go. I asked
a teacher where I needed to be,
and he told a kid to show me
where to go. Later on, I felt a little
better about being in a new
school. It wasn't nearly as .hard as
I expected. the teachers were very
nice. By the middle of the day, i
had decided I liked middle school
a lot better than elementary
school."
-Shana Pridgeon
"Even .though I've already
been to middle school at my old
school in Ohio, this school is
much better to me. The periods:
are shorter, the students are nicer
to me, and the teachers are more
helpful."
--Jasmine Freeman
"First I went to a room where
I was introduced to the hew
school. They were very nice and
made me feel better about being
here. We were told exactly where
to be and what we had to do. They
prepared me for my day ahead so
I wouldn't get lost. I was
completely ready for the next
class. My first day .was pretty
good; I had fun!"
-Tyler Bush
Message from Mrs. Askew

Answers to Real Estate questions
from your local Century 21 Agents.
IN HASSLE-FREE HOME BUYING
By: Brenda Miller
Perhaps 'ou'd like to take ad.onrage of ioday's great buyer's market in housing but feel a tl-
tie intimicaled by every thing that's in'.aoled You know the roul.ne finding the right locale and the
right house; negotiating an agreement; putting together a down payment; and selechng the best
mortgage available.
.There are two things you can do to ma.e every step run smoothly The first is to select a real-
ly professional agernt vho knows the real estate business, knows your local market, has both a solid
reputation for integrity and a solid record of success and clearly is eager to respond to your needs
The second is to make your ageni your reammare~in the literal sense oa the word, using teamwork
to be sure that the house ou u uhi0marei,' bu, is the house you've always wanted.
S Making your agent your teammate requires choosing an agent you feel able'to trust botl as
a person and as a professional. And thet's" no small matter In real estate as in all areas of busi-
ness as in all aspects of life, actually trust can make all the difference in the world. True team-
w-ork is nearly impossible to acihie,'e unless you stick with one agent throughout the buying process
By all means >ou should .hop around and shop around carefully when you're still decid-
-ng 'which agent to 'work tilh Once you've made that decision, however, don't reverse it unless
(arid this rarely happens to people who are careful in the first place) something specific happens
to make it clear that your choice was unwise Teammate status is all the motivation a first-rate agent
needs to go all-out in finding houses that suit your needs..
And if you're concerned about what it is you're looking for and hdw' much house you, think,
you can afford, your agent can save you huge amounts of time and effort If you're not sure how'
much you can afford, be candid with your agent about that, too He or she can provide you with
some helpful preliminary guidelines and can put you in touch with mortgage lenders who know
how to gel you focused or, an appropriate price range
w a It's always.a good idea, a ,you look at listed homes, to give your agent a lot of feedback on
what you've seen. Good feedback will refine and sharpen the agent's understanding of your likes
and dislikes, which in turn will make it easier to find the house ofyour dreams, The ultimate pay-.
off, once again, is that you get to your goal more quickly, expending 'less time and less effort along
the way. Anyone who has ever done it this way will assure you of one thing: it pays off.

' With tan eye. on improving
ptatents' medical records as well
as:. medical care, Gulf Pines
fIo$pltal in Port St. Joe has moved
from paper records to electronic
records.
- The hospital just completed
the implementation of a new elec-
tronic medical records system.
Gulf Pines Hospital admints-
t fator Hu Steeley pointed to better
efficiency, portability and privacy
as&some of the reasons for the new.,
system, but said it Is the increase
in" the level of care the hospital
, an give its patients that is the
feal driving force behind the bold
ptep.
" ,, Hank Cozine, a physician's
,assistant and the hospital's emer-
gency room .ntnager, explained
how something as mundane as a
patient's record on ,a computer
screen translates into better care.
"When a patient arrives in the
emergency room confused and

distressed, I can drop his name
into the computer and pull out a
chart that gives a history of the
patient's lab tests, medications
and clinical evaluations. And I
can compare the observations
made about others with the
patient's condition-all as he lies
right there on. the stretcher," he
said.
-The result, he said, is a much
more comprehensive view of the
patient's medical history than can
be achieved by flipping through a
cumbersome paper chart.
Physicians .can also print out key
pages for reference.
"From the clinical perspective,
the increase in quality of care
alone is worth whatever cost is
Involved in our new system."
Cozine said.
The new computerized system
also allows staff to view the same
chart simultaneously from anyv-

cian's offices or their homes.,
With old paper chart systems,
one copy of the complete patient
file existed and had to be shared
among staff, which meant each.
person accessing the file had to
check it out for use and check it
back in when they finished. Any
other medical staff needing a
patient's chart while it was
.checked out would have to spend
often-valuable time to track it
down.
The new electronic chart
management system will also help
patients in dealing with insurance
companies. Hospital staff can
pnnt out relevant parts of the
patient's record to send along,
with the bill for the insurance
company, often anticipating needs
before they arise. This results in
faster reimbursement and fewer
denials and delays.
Business office and Informa-
tion technology manager Christy
Gainous said the new system has
also proven to be a big help in
immediately accessing records for
patients who have not visited the
hospital in recent weeks.

Searching old paper record she
said, could be a time-consuming
chore..
S"When you're the patient."'
she said- "even a few extra rrn -
utes to locate your files before you

very long time."
The electronic medical chart
management system also dramat-
ically., increases .privacy .of
patients' medical records.
Even though the system pro-
vides instant access to records at
multiple locations simultane-
ously, a system of secure, private
connections uses security proto-
cols and digital certificates to cre-
ate a secure audit trail.
In addition to multiple levels
of encryption for security, the
hospital also sets its own policy to

It Is yet another component,

Inherited A Wonderful Quil? Learn How to Care for It


Quilts are precious treasures.
They need to be treated with care.
But just how do you care for a
quilt if you think it needs cleaning
or laundering?
First of all, cleaning or
laundering Is not always
necessary. Check to see if the
quilt is stained or soiled. It may
just smell old, in which case try
airing it to remove the smell that
happens when fabric is stored for
several years. Vacuuming is


another option.
-If you vacuum, cover the
' sweeper's attachment with panty-
hose. People who .clean quilts'
professionally advise to "beware of:
'dust busters." Their- suction is
strong and may loosen or fray
threads. Also, beware of airing in
direct sunlight. Air a quilt wrong-
side out in the shade or on a
screened or covered porch. if
possible.
Secondly, do not dry clean


fine .textiles unless .the quilt
cannot be laundered. Wool battffig
in quilts must be dry cleaned. The
.dry cleaning fluid causes a film to'
build up on the, fibers and, may
deteriorate them.-
When you decide that
laundering is what you want
follow these steps:
Check for worn bindings,
loose threads, frayed peices. or
other trouble spots. Note stained
areas for treatment.


Repair spots, if possible
before laundering, This is done by
appliqueing over .the hole or
frayed place.
If the quilt is stained, place ift
in a bathtub and soak overnight
in lukewarm water in an enzyme
detergent. Rinse out the soaking
solution carefully in lukewarm
water. Do not squeeze or wring the
quilt. Be cautious of commercial
stain removal products since they
may fade the fabrics.

Launder the quilt using a
"quilt soap" available at quilt
stores. Even some :of the mild
hand-washing products now have
added brighteners, which actually
are bleaches and harmful to the
delicate fabric in quilts. Soak the
quilt for fifteen minutes; rinse six
or seven times. It is important to
get all of the soap out. Let it drain
to reduce its weight. Use four or
five towels to blot out remaining
moisture as well as you can.
Dry outdoors on a low-
humidity day. A breezy. cool day
is best. Do not dry in direct
sunlight. An old-fashioned electric
fan blowing on the quilt will help
it dry faster.


Ij


Support your quilt so thaFthe
fibers aren't unevenly stretched.
After you clean your quilt; storage
. becomes important in keeping it
clean and fresh. Keep quilts out of
plastic bags.. Storage in plastic
traps hurrudity and rumildew spores
and quilts will rot rapidly.
Air your quilts every six
months and refold a different way
from the previous folding to
prevent it from forming
permanent creases. Store them' iti
clean pillowcases or on muslin
lined shelves instead of bare wood
shelves or in a bare wood chest, or
roll them on muslin-covered
cardboard tubes.

Body ClocL


Breakthru'


Can Benefit


Your Health

Tapping into your body's
secret rhythm may help you slim
down, rev up and feel better than
ever. Research has shown that
our internal clocks have a steady,
built-in rhythm. That means
there's a predictable, 24-hour
cycle to virtually every Single
bodily function.
Here are some ways to get in
sync with your body clock:
Eat a big breakfast. (and a
light lunch and dinner) to lose a
pound a week. Research shows
that food 'eaten early is converted
into heat and energy, while food
eaten in the evening is quickly
stored as fat.
Forget about eating balanced
meals to make cravings vanish.
The body s ability to control blood
sugar changes dramatically over
the course of a day. and eating a
protein-nch breakfast and lunch
is one of the best ways to keep it
stable.
Wake up at the same tlme
every day to have more energy all
week. Your internal clock controls
your production of the sleep-
triggering hormone melatonin.
Keeping the gap between your
wake-.up time and bedtime
constant ensures that melatonin
peaks in the evening hours when
you really need it.
S'Soak uLip the morning sun to
get more done. Bask in 30
minutes of sun first thing by

eating breakfast beside a bnght
window, dnnking your coffee on
the pano or going out for a walk.
Morning light exposure sets your
internal clock, so your body
temperature. energy level and
alertness stay high dunne the
day.
Plan your, toughest, thinking
early to be 30 percent more
effective. Studies show that,
mental alertness peaks around 10
a.m., making nud-mornrig the
best time to deal With difficult
subjects. -
Tackle medical tests early in
the day to get more accurate'-
results. The morning hours are
the best time to get your blood
pressure and cholesterol checked.
Both can vary by 10 points or
More over the day but since high
morning readings are the ones
strongly associated with health
problems, they're the ones you
want- to catch and treat.
See your dentist in the

afternoon to optimize pain relief.
Research shows that local
anesthetics, such as lidocaine,
last three times longer if given
between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
It's all a:,matter of timing.
SLearning more about your.
internal clock may be good for
you.
