AN Railway


Local Rail

The St. Joe Company
announced Monday that an
agreement has been reached to
sell the rolling stock of the'
Apalachicola Northern Railroad'
(ANRR) to AN Railway L.L.C., a
subsidiary of Rail Management
Corporation, headquartered in
Panama City. This transaction is
subject to- regulatory approval.
Rail Management also owns and
operates the Bay Line,.a short-line
railroad between Panama' City
and Dothan, Alabama, as, well as
twelve other short-line railroads
across'the country from Florida to
Arizona.
According to the terms of the
sale, St.; Joe will retain ownership,
of the right-of-way. track. related
facilities and real estate, and will
lease the track, and related facili-
ties to AN Railway. At the close of
the transaction, AN Railway is :
expected to begin operations
between Port St. Joe and
Chattahoochee.
"A key objective of this trans-
actioi' is to enhance rail'service to
Port St. Joe," said :Peter, S.
Rummell, chairman and CEO of
'St. Joe. 'The JOE management
Steam's expertise is in real estate.
.not railroads. We believe, that
ANRR customers will benefit
greatly from Rail Management's
short-line railroad experuse."
The combination of Apala-
chicola Northern Railroad opera-
tions with Bay Line represents an
excellent opportunity for us," said
Earl Durden, chairman, and CEO
of Rail Management, Inc.. the cor-
porate parent of Bay Line. '"W\Ve're a
local business. we-'re-(amilijar-wth-
the region, and we're committed
to regional economic develop-
ment. We see reliable rail service
as an important part of Gulf
County's economic development
strategy going forward."
'The sale of ANRR rolling
stock to Rail Management does
not end St. Joe's commitment to a
successful rail operation in Port
St. Joe." said Rummell. "Our con-
tinued ownership of ANRR's real
estate. including the track and
track bed. makes tus a partner
with Rail Management. Bay Line
and the community. with a vested
interest in seeing this operation
succeed. .
'We're particularly pleased to
have found a local company to
provide rail services to Port St. joe
that is focused on the transporta-
tion needs of the region." he con-

noon as he stressed a commit-
ment to maintaining the local rail,
service.
Durden said his management
team will work hard with the com-
munity and its economic develop-
ment entities to help make that'
growth a reality. He said continu-
ing to service present, rail users
will be, a priority, as new -cus-.
tomers are sought. New industries
and future port customers are
considered as prime prospects for
expanded rail service.
"We look forward to becornmng
a part of the community...it's
going to take all of us working
together to make this happen." he
said, adding "the St. Joe Company
has also committed to helping in
this process."
Durden said the final plans of
operation will not be completed
until sore time 'next week. He,
stated that present employees will
be considered first for positions
determined to be 'needed to oper-
ate the railroad.

That would fairly capture the
range of emotions from bargain-

al from the Gulf County School
Board.' .
The proposal was for a 1.2
percent increase above the 1.8
percent step increase that went
into effect July 1.
In contrast, the union's open*-
ing offer was for a 4 percent"
increase above the step. retroac-
tive to July 1. with a guarantee of
another 3 percent increase above
the step effective July 1. 2003.
'That's our first offer and as'
we move across ... maybe we cant
get closer,. said Jerry Copeland.

'"Three percent money in a
year like this isn't (out of line). Is
it enough, no, but is it a raise over
last year. yes."
Last year, teachers received
only the step increase, but not all
teachers are eligible for the incre-r
'mental raise.
Many of the district's most
senior teachers, those with, 20
ears or more, are not eligible for
step increases.
Additionally, the board
offered to add S25 to its monthly
contribution to health insurance,

When hard at work they look'
like something ,out. of a Buck",
Rogers television serial.
Full-face respirators, torches
attached to oxygen and propane
hoses and dark clothing provide
the appearance of supernatur'al'
beings sent to Earth for the single
purpose of cutting huge chunks
of 'steel into small pieces, as if
chopping hulking sequoias into:
logs for the fireplace,.
In any given day this ,crew
from JWA Inc., out of Baton
Rouge, La., will cut 40 to 75 tons
of steel into 5x3 pieces. \-
Using the floor of the old No.
1 warehouse as a staging area, a
crane with a magnet the size of a
large manhole cover will. move
large pieces of steel beams and
girders into place.
The JWA crew don masks,
grab their torches 'and set to
work. When they are finished the
steel squares are loaded into rail
cars for the journey to places
around the world.
The first five rail cars were
loaded early this week, each haul-
ing roughly '60 tons of steel.
Before the week is out, 15
more cars will leave the mill site,
with 20 more scheduled to pull
out next week.
From then on the plan is to
move 40 rail cars, carrying rough-
ly 60 tons apiece, each week for
the next 52 weeks.


That's nearly 130,000 tons of
steel in the next year,' all leaving
the mill by, the Apalachicola &
Northern Railroad.
""There's a lot of steel in this
place," said John Griffith, co-divi-
sion manager for CCC Group Inc.,
which is taking down the mill.
"It switches from a demolition
job to a logistics one overnight."
,Most of the steel is headed for
China 'and India, though some
will end up at domestic steel pro-
duicers .
The job of slicing'it down to
melting size is left to JWA, which
must carry, some cache since it
was selected as the company
charged with cutting, or burning
in the demolition jargon, the steel
from the ravaged World Trade
Center after the September 11
terrorist attacks of last year.
Juan Sanchez, the JWA fore-
man at the mill site, spent seven
- months on Staten Island cutting
the shards of the Twin Towers, in
all some 235,000 tons of steel,
about 35,000 tons each week.
"It was the biggestjob I'd ever
done," Sanchez said. "What hap-
pened there was important, but it
was .the same job I do every-
where."
While the focus of awe and
emotion was at ground zero in
lower Manhattan, on Staten
Island it was all about the work.

agreeing to continue to- pay the
.25 toward premiums that cur-
rently comes out of what is known
as a "pro-share" fund.
Those dollars represent the!
difference between premiums
paid to Blue Cross/Blue Shield
and actual claims paid by the.
insurer which had been shared by.
the district and BCBS.
That Fund is due to be
exhausted in October or Novem-
ber. but the board offered to con-
tinue to pay the S25 toward
health insurance.
Union negotiators were open-
ly skeptical; a few expressing
obvious outrage, over the propos-
Sal.
Tom Wazlavek, executive
director of the Gulf County Edu-
catibn Association, argued that
.the district spent less this year:
'than last -, $5.4 million com-
pared to $5.7 million on
salaries this year; .
"Even with the 'movement
along the salary scale (from the
step increase last year, the board
is paying less for 'salaries,"
Wazlavek said.
And he said in raw numbers,I
the district realized an increase of
more than $500,000 in overall K-
12 findingn:
Copeland, however, contend-
ed that the district actually had
less money to spend this year
than last.
"The district spent more-
money than it had last year and
reduced the' (general) fund bal-
ance accordingly," Copeland said.
Wazlavek said it was impossi-
ble for him to determine that
accuracy of 'Copeland's con-
tention since he has not been pro-
Svided a copy of the district's bud-
get.
Judy Campbell, president of
the GCEA, wondered if the Board,
in making its offer, had fully con-
sidered looming teacher shortages
that figure to affect the entire
state and the loss of teachers to
other districts offering higher
salaries.
"We do not have a competitive
salary scale," Campbell said, not-
ing that keeping salaries down
could have "catastrophic" effects
- for the district.
Copeland argued that declin-
ing enrollment numbers meant
fewer dollars, though Wazlavek
noted that enrollment had in fact
not declined this year and had
turned a corner.
And he also expressed con-


cern that while the teacher ranks
have been thinned this year
through a new teacher/student
ratio, sirrular thinning had not
occurred within the ranks of
administrators.
."We have administrators eat-
ing up salary anrd that concerns
us." Wazlavek said.
But after much caucusing
:and discussion, the distance
between the sides on salaries and
benefits remained gaping.
"We have a *very limited
amount of funding we can 'put
into this." Copeland ,said. "The
Board has worked very hard to
come up with an offer,.
"We had hoped to see a little
mriovement here to, make another
one, knowing that it will be a
smaller one."
That is not to say the sides
didn't make small steps on other
issues.
The Board proposal to elimi-
nate the step increase was tai-
lored with new language spelling

Maybe you've been approached at a mall or festi- Pictured with Rich (left) is C
val to sign a form promoting smaller classroom sizes
or insuring humane treatment of pregnant pigs. What
the solicitor didn't tell you is that these constitutional
amendments proposed for the next election are end-
runs around the legislative process. More important-
ly, they are end runs around the 160 state legislators ,.. .
that citizens elected to deal with thorny, complex
issues.
So when Floridians go to the polls in November.
they will be asked to make policy decisions instead of
our state legislators. That's because the proposed
amendments expected to appear on this November's
ballot are almost all policy issues. not constitutional
ones. ,
It's time for us to put an end to this mess. I still get a sick
feeling in the pit of my stomach when I think about what this
process did to some of the finest, salt of the earth people in the
world-fishermen.
Yes. it was a constitutional amendment called the Net
Limitation Amendment and is now affectionately called the Net
g, Ban Amendment. that reaped havoc on those fine people.
What will it be next? Lord help...I hope it's not newspaper
people. I know we couldn't make the cut. We'd all be voted out
of existence with very little effort, I'm. sure.
Now you might think this sounds a little far-fetelhed...that's
exactly what I thought when I saw the Net amendment. If you
get'the right "snake oil" salesman you may be able to put a
wrapper on most any amendment proposal and sell it.
Take.for example the "high-speed" rail systems that voters .
narrowly passed two years ago. Somehow or another support-
ers of this measure convinced the very people who are going to
have to come up with the zillions of dollars to pay for this boon-
doggie to support it as a constitutional amendment. Supporters
couldn't sell this proposal to legislators so they took it directly
to the voters. For the rest of this story we need to remember the
Swords to that song...they'll get the gold mine we'll get the shaft.
Now folks, you need to read proposed amendment change
#10 titled Animal Cruelty Amendment: Limiting Cruel and
Inhumane Confinement of Pigs During Pregnancy.
Like-I said we're taking this constitutional amendment thing
too far. Look at our U.S. Constitution. It has 27 amendments.
Just 17 more than the original draft of 10.
If nothing changes there will be 11 amendments appearing
on the November ballot this year. In one year the citizens of the
State of Florida are considering nearly as many changes to the
Constitution as the United States has approved in over 200
years.
Enough is enough-it's time for us to put an end to this
process. These petition efforts are being used to unjustifiably -- '- '
circumvent the Florida legislative system. Hopefull\' this can be
brought to an end through the efforts of lawmakers. If not. we
voters are going to have to start being real warn- of petition ini-
tiatives. otherwise it could, cost us severely.


on a made 'Lfor tele\i-sion monoe
about the event.....
Let me tell you. there ain't
gi-ine to be no stnke!
There can't be! The players tare

Th, --wners are making billions ot

hear me now, NOBODY could be

I used to pick up walnuts in
Miss Madeline Boaz's backyard..I
picked those suckers up for hours.
.Put them in a grocery bag. I. put


them in several grocery bags! I
stacked them neatly under her
carport. The green and black guck
from off of those walnuts would
stain my hands. stain my clothes.
stain my shoes. stain my hair.....
At the end of a lone. hot. gru-
eling, stam-filled day she'd give me
a dime.
I should have gone on strike
When I was in the sixth grade
I got a job at, the swimming pool
picking up paper. Roe Alexander
let me in swimming free. All I had'


to do was keep all the trash picked
up from around the changing
rooms and out in the sun bathing
areas on either side of the pool.
You ever picked up a Zag Nut
wrapper on a hundred and ten
degree day? How about the thin.
clear, clingy, cellophane type stuff
from off of one of those coconut
balls? And listen, the chocolate
covered paper from the Milky Way
or the Three Musketeer mightlhave
been the worst!
I can feel every little sticky Zag
Nut scraping that stuck to that
paper on'my finger tips to this day.
Forty years hasn't washed them
away. I can still smell the roasted
coconut droppings. I'd go home at
night with somebody else'spopsi-
cle stick stuck permanently to my.,
wrist!
'The high schoolers would
throw their empty Dr. Pepper bot-
tles at me. They'd pile" up their
trash .in a neat little stack at:-the
end 'of a beach towel and then
scatter it all as I approached.
They'd turn the peanuts packages
inside out and stick them to my
forehead. They'd yell "here comes
the little-garbage-pickup-man"
every time Roe would call me in
from swimming and point me
toward my duties.
And remember folks, he's not
paying me a thing! You don't know
the times I thought to myself. I
could go down to ,the creek 'and
swim and not have to put up with .
all of this!
I should have gone on strike!
Or just flat put quit!
I worked my last two summers
in high school at Tommie Hill's DX
service station. I was paid five dol-
lars a day. Seven on Saturday. I
know it sounds like a plush
job-pump a little gas, air up a
right front, give directions to the
Herschel McCracken haunted
house out on the Shiloh Road.....
Let me tell you, I worked there
a month before I even saw the gas
pump! I fixed tractor flats. Mostly
rear tire tractor flats. My lingers
stayed mashed for two summers. I .
burned holes' in my shirts with
those hot Camel patches. I
dropped jacks on my foot. About ,
every thdired ,red flip the tiim.loos-
ening bar back *up against my
skull. Every night Mother would
complain about the holes in the
shirt and ask\h whose blood this
was all over the front.....
On Saturday I washed every
automobile in the county-in
between fixirig the flat tires,
putting on fan belts, sweeping out
the-bins and changing hot, gnmy
motor oil. One early morning
before things got going good Mrs.
Singletree wheeled up in her 1960
Chevrolet. I bounded out to greet
her. She wanted two dollars worth
of hi-test and her windshield
cleaned. I rung the pump back to
zero and started looking for the gas
cap. .I checked both sides along
those tail fins. I felt along the
brake lights for a trap door. I
crawled 'up under the back.-....
I 'went looking. for Autis

When being sent to the pri'- .

BASICALLY, WE WERE inh

Remember When a .'57 Chevy

When people went steady;
and girls wore a class ring with
.an inch of wrapped Band-Aids or

Subdivision De


S'Gulf County commissioners
.approved. four preliminary platss
with a total of 154. units during
their regular- meeting Tuesday
evening.
Commissioners were following

Bargaining
out that eligible employees would
receive the step July 1 each year
unless the union and Board
agreed otherwise...
Agreement was also reached
on- guidelines under which a
teacher would be eligible for a 5
percent performance bonus.
The measure was passed by
the Florida Legislature several :.
years ago.
Proponents argue that it
: rewards ,outstanding .teachers,.
though the parameters of receiv-
ing an outstanding assessment
are subject to collective bargain-,
ing.,
Opponents perceived the per-
formance measure as a way to
take more money off the table
when -it comes to negotiating
teacher salaries.
Last year, the district handed
'out more 'than $100,000 to some
50 or :so "outstanding" teachers.
'"The language agreed' upon
Monday night was such that it
would be nearly impossible for
'any teacher to receive the perfor-
.mance pay. .
Wazlavek wondered if, with
'an extra 8106,000 or so in play,
CQpeland would move off .his ini-,
tial salary proposal but that offer
proved a n- sale.
The- sides also reached-agree-
-.ment on; several other technical
issues, but another primary hur-
dle ,.to settlement involves the
: issue of terminal pay. .
Currently, teachers must pro:
videe one year's riotice of their
retirement or death "We never.
have figured out the logistics of
",that one," Wazlavek ,said 'of the-
-latter to receive a percentage,
80 percent for teachers .with 20 or
-'more years experience, of their
terminal and sick pay..
That provision, though. does
not apply to administrators or
non-instructional personnel.

a recommendation from the Gulf
County Planning Development
and Review board to issue prelim-
inary plat approval for Midway
Estates (19 units at the Gulf
County/Calhoun County line).


From Pg. 1
"That is one of our big stick-
ing issues," Wazlavek said. "I
think that the Board has taken
advantage of that in the past. Why
would you treat your teachers dif-
ferently when they are the core 'of
your work force?"
Copeland, however, said this
was a cost item and the district is
trying to squeeze every penny and
nickel into salaries.
Wazlavek wondered how'
much it could cost the district
given the rarity of a teacher retir-
ing without providing the required
notice.
Copeland did acknowledge
that the proVision was 'non-typi-
cal" and the sides discussed lan-
guage that would allow a teacher
to retire without giving the year
notice provided they didn't take
their terminal pay until the ensu-
ing fiscal year.
'The issue was tabled, for a.
later negotiating session.
Compensatory time and sup-
plements also continue to be
negotiating chips between the two
sides.
In bargaining for support per-
sonnel. the sides, continued to
work through language in the

: Copeland, made no salary
'offer in response to the union's
opening proposal for a 4 percent.
across the board raise, with
employees in six classifications
-receiving 10 percent raises.

according to Assistant Gulf
County Planner IDavid

presently in various stages of

on the area is obvious. 556 units

Scallop Fest- From pg.


will,serve as a kind of drive-thru
scallop window.
Combined with the Saltwater
Slam out of the St. Joe Marina,
the Scallop Festival provides a
weekend's worth of fun and frolic,
and a climactic shindig to the
summer season.
"It takes advantage of the last
gasp of summer and the scallop
season," Chafin said.
Scallop season ends the sec-
ond week of September.
The Slam and Scallop Festival
had been turned into separate
events the past couple of years


because the combination, along
with the Labor Day weekend,'
proved somewhat overwhelming
for organizers.
But, as Chafin said,' "when
people think about Labor Day
they think of scallops" and so the
events are reunited a tag-team for
tourists and locals alike.
And with the. Slam taking
place Friday night and Saturday,
the Scallop Festival Saturday and
Sunday, the holiday weekend is
chock full of activities.
"They can stay as busy as
they want to and have a lot going

Slam this


Weekend
by Tim Croft
Combine water, fish and
boats and a fine time is a virtual
slam dunk.
"o ; 'The Fourth Annual Port St.
Joe Marina Saltwater Slam will be
held Saturday, Aug. 31. joining
Sthi conclusion of the Port St. Joe
SSport Fishing Classic to bring, the
curtain down on the summer fish-
ing season.
"There will be two events
going on simultaneously. said
marina director John Landry.
"That's a big combination. It's
going to be a big affair."
The Slam is divided into
inshore and offshore divisions.
The entry fee for the offshore divi-
sion is S200. for the inshore S50.
'-Its very inexpensive to get in
to," Landry said.
In a twist from previous
years, both divisions will be team
competitions by boat captain'
, and his team. .
Each team will be permitted
to weigh only its heaviest fish in
each species. with points awarded
by place, starting at 100 points
for first place.
Points across the board are
then tallied for a total. with cash
prizes awarded to the top three
teams in each division.
"This year 100 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 your boat
for the slam you have to catch all'

Kings Are King During MBARA Tournament

Mayflower Crew Catches $3,000 King Mackerel


by Tim. Croft
Craig Ives didn't bring a king-
fish to the scales Saturday after-
noon, but he felt like he was wear-
ing a crown nonetheless.
After all, he reeled in the
heaviest fish during the sixth
annual Mexico Beach Artificial
Reef Association's Kingfish Tour-
nament, a 49.5 pound wahoo,
won $1,000 and. earned the right
to have his picture snapped with
the comely Miss .Kingfish, Anna
;Hodges of Port St. Joe .
S-tI'm pretty .happy right now,"
. Ives,. a Quitman, Ga., resident
said. :used to fish here all the .
Stime. but I haven't fished here for
years. I haven't been down here
for four or five years. I came down
for this tournament."
v es and hig boat, Parker,
which he ,called just ah. old 25-
footer. were among a.field of 135
boats- that participated in 'this
year's Kingfish Tournament, a
testament, MBARA president Ron
Childs said, to the work of the all-
volunteer organization that has

'built nearly 80 reefs since 1997 in
the waters off Mexico Beach. '
'' "We had' 137 boats'last year
a'nd'something like 120 the previn-:
ous year so we have kind of lev-
eled out," Childs said. "I kind of,
like the size we are. It's a good
down-home tournament. We don't
have any shotgun starts, we are
on the honor system.
"People get behind a good
, organization, a good cause. We
produce results and we are 100
percent volunteers.",'
Th'e results .produced are
quantified in far more than the
number of new reefs built .to
attract fish, and' in turn divers
and fishermen.,
Once the reefs have found
purchase on the ocean floor, the
group continuously monitors
them, gathenng data and produe-
ing videos that, can be accessed
on the MBARA website.
"We probably have more fish,
more marine life 'thafi in the
Caribbean," said Keith Neel,' who
does much of the research for the
MBARAi 'We want to gather a
data base that we can use scien-
tifically. We. are 'actually, doing
more monitoring than any
artificial reef organization."
:, The annual Kingfish Tourna-
ment is far and away the group's
largest 'and- nmost-,' successful
fundraiser. L '"
Childs estimated "that the


event would raise somewhere
between $12,000-$14,000 after

Gators Enter A New Era


with New Coach and Leaders


by Tim Croft
New coach, new leaders, new
era.
Still District 1-2A champs.
The Wewahitchka Gators,
fresh off the school's first-ever
undefeated regular season, have
shed many of the trappings sur-
rounding their historic season,
but still wear the crown.
"We are district champs and
we are district champs until
somebody knocks us off," said
Coach Ken Cohen, who succeeds
Grant Grantham after four years
as a defensive coordinator at a
Division I California school, the
state's large-school division.
"It's going good. We've got
some good young kids. They are
eager to learn, they are working
hard and they are buying into the
philosophy."
A central facet to that philos-
ophy, Cohen said, is to forget
about the past.
Sure, Brandon Jones, Derrick,
Williams and Harold Williams,
standouts on last year's team, are
gone, taking a ton of offense with
them.
But the Gators have 46 kids -
making a junior varsity team a
reality itching for their chance to
shoulder the load and make
excellence just as much a part of
the present' and future as the
recent past.
"We can't live off 'the past," -
Cohen said. "Reality is that every-
one is human and :somebody has,
to step up' to take: the place of
those humans.;
"We are a better team. speed

wise, than last year, I think. We
just have to be disciplined."
For example, there is senior
running back Ryan Baker, who
averaged 11 yards and scored five
touchdowns on 23 carries -
that's a touchdown about every
four touches and was a threat
receiving.


There is Byron Jones, tabbed
by .the Tallahassee Democrat as
one of the top 10 underclassmen
in the Big Bend.
At 6-foot-1, 195 pounds and
feet of mercury, Jones, a sopho-
more, Cohen said, "is an athlete,
he's going to be something."
And there is also. senior
Andrea Williams, a "cat-quick"
defensive end who figures to set'
the tone when the opposition's


New Gator head coach Ken Cohen works with backs during prac-
tice last week. .

Offensively, Cohen prefers

defense prepare for you, not you
prepare for the defense," Cohen
said. "Sort of the Steve Spurrier
philosophy of offensive football.
"I tend to want to keep the"
ball on the ground. I'm not one to
pass unless 'I have to. We are
reading the defense and seeing
what they are doing."
Cohen has three "good" quar-'
"terbacks: John Curtis Gates,
Hunter Nunnery and Josh Pitts.
, :, "Pitts is a freshman and will
likely see more action at wingback
'than quarterback this year.
The downside is an offensive
line that returns just one starter,
6-3, 260 pound Alan Easter, and
will likely start three sophomores..
"That's probably our weak-
ness right now," Cohen said.
"That's where the young ones
have to step up." ''
On defense, Cohen considers
himself fortunate to have deferi-
s ive coordinator Charles Fortner
returning. .
S: Last year the Gators regis-
tered six shutouts, the year before
it was'four.
"tFortner) has .had ,10
shutouts in the last two years so
I'm going to leave him well enough
alone." Cohen said. "If it's .not.
broke, don't fix it."
The key to the season, to
repeating or even coming close to
last year's lofty benchmark will be
developing the kind of depth that
is so rare at a'small school.
"I've got to see'my substitutes
step up," Cohen said. "We don't
have a lot of depth. You are only
as good as your-weakest link. I'm
trying, to get my other kids to
believe they have to step up and'
play like the first-teamers."
Cohen spent four seasons
coaching defenses against some
of the top schools in California,
and the nation, such as Mater Dei
and Cal Poly of Long Beach.,
"I got good experience out
there," he said.
.Prior to that he had been an
assistant at Hamilton County.
He' was a walk-on at Florida
State from 1988-92.

Palmer enters second year


by Tim Croft
Coach 'John Palmer under-
stands that with 24 varsity play-
ers he won't be able to wear down
opponents with waves of depth.
His Sharks aren't going to
overpower a lot of folks, what with
offensive and defensive lines that
"average around 210 pounds.
And with just seven seniors,
only five of whom played signifi-
cant minutes last years, Palmer
won't, be able to rely oon savvy
experience to see his Sharks
through the District 2-1A sched-
ule. ,
So this summer, Palmer
focused on conditioning, improv-
ing the speed and, well, skills of
his skill people..
"The kids :have really worked
hard, they've progressed well,"
Palmer said.
"We had a pretty good turnout
for our summer weight program
and practice has gone well the
first two weeks. They came in in
$) good condition."
All save Jerry Bailey, a 6-foot-
3. 270-pound transfer 'from
Springield Rutherford expected
to be a anchor on the line of
scrimmage on both sides of the
ball. .
Bailey. bothered by knee pain
'all summer, recently underwent
arthroscopic surgery and will lfke-
Ivy miss the first two or three
games of the season.
The other significant loss was
the decision by last year's starting
quarterback Chase Millender.,
who passed for 900 yards and 12:
touchdowns last year; to coricen-
trate solely oh baseball.
His absence will mean the
quarterback will be a two-headed
position this year. with Rave Bai--
: ley and Kenny McFarland both,
likely to take snaps this year.-'
Due to the lack of depth and


the versatility of Bailey, who can
play .several positions on either
side of the line of scrimmage,
McFarland figures to see plenty of
action at quarterback early in
each game to take some of the
load off Bailey.
"We are, going to use two
'quarterbacks," Palmer said. "We
want to play Kenny early because
Raye can play other positions."
On the flip side. Port St. Joe
should benefit from the arrival of
Randall Johnson, a 6-1, 193
pound running back/linebacker
who has .tranSferred in from
Apalachicola.
"He's a real athlete," Palmer
said. He will help in several
areas." .
The Sharks, 4-6 last year, will
be in their familiar Wing-T on
offense. '
Given the size of the line, the
key will be taking advantage of
the speed Port St. Joe has on the
perimeter.
S "We need to open the offense'
up," Palmer said. "We need to get
the ball to the skill guys in space.
Speed is going to have to do it for
us." .
And with the offense trying to
find its footing early with new
leadership, .it will,be crucial for
the defense to disrupt opposition
attacks early in the season.
"The defense has to do it for
us early," Palmer said. "They need
to carry us.
'The strength of our team is'


going to be our speed; especially
on defense. We are overly big, not
overly strong."
Toward that end, Palmer and,
assistant coach' Chuck Gannon


have created some wrinkles in the
base 4-4 defense that will look at
times like a 50 defense and will be
focused on controlling gaps.

Flossing removes plaque
from between the teeth and:
under the gumline, areas where
the toothbrush can't reach. If you,
haven't been in the habit of floss-
.ing, it's never too late to start.
Initially, your gums may bleed:
when you begin flossing. The
bleeding* should stop in a few,
days as your gums become more,
healthy.
When flossing, keep in mind
ihese tips. Gently ease the flo0s


and $15 for single membership.
Join by contacting any club officer
for an. application' or by calling
Boyd Pickett at 229-2977 for
further information. Go 'Noles!


FlOSsing Tips


between the teeth and gumline.
Never, snap it. Form a "c" against
the side of each tooth and gently
rub the floss up and down.against
the tooth, moving it from under
the gumline to the top. Establish
a regular pattern of flossing and
remember to floss the backside,
of the last teeth.
It's especially important for,
bridge-wearers -to floss around
the abutment teeth. These teeth
must remain healthy if the bridge
is to function properly. If you have
dexterity' problems or; a physical
disability, try tying the floss into a
loop for easier handling. To insert
floss under a fixed bridge, us a
floss threader.

With a mere 16 days of school
completed, business is back to
usual and busy, busy, busy. Sweat
and muscles are prevalent around
the high school in the afternoons
due to numerous sports and
extracurricular activities including
football, volleyball, cross-country,
band, and cheerleading beginning
their practices for upcoming
games and meets. If you are look-
ing for a chance to see the football
team in action, the football Kickoff
Classic will be held on Friday,
August 30th at 7:30 p.m. EST at
the Shark Stadium. Please bring
your best cheering voice and some
extra cash if you wish to support
the cheerleaders by purchasing a
purple and gold shark afghan for
$30 or if you wish to support the
athletic department by purchasing
a discount card for $10.
It's that time again; the Red
* Cross needs your support in
Donating your blood on September
4th at 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at
the high school. Not only do you
get to help give the gift of life, you
get a free drink, too.,
The juniors at Port St. Joe
High. were: given an extra day off,
last Friday for a beach trip reward-
ing their FCAT scores. If you see
any tomato-colored students in
town, you can congratulate them
on their scores Some other stu-
dents might be. jealous of the
juniors' day off, so they will be glad
to hear of the upcoming extra long
weekend thanks to Labor Day on


September 2nd. The juniors voted
last week and elected their Junior
Executive Board officers. Rachel
Bixler will serve as president,
Becky Belin as vice-president,
Austin Horton' as secretary,
Shanna Collier as treasurer, and
Shawna Bond as parliamentarian.
Congrats to all the new officers
and good luck in the upcoming
year.
Please excuse the mess in the
high school due to rewiring efforts
and watch your step. Also, the
guidance office phones will be
down for a few days, so please call
the front office if you need'to speak
to someone from guidance. A big
thanks from all the students to the
guidance office and staff for'all
their hard work in constructing
and in some cases changing the
405 schedules for returning and
new students this year. As the say-
ing goes, "Blessed Are the flexible
for their shall not be bent out tof
shape!" .
With the business of the
school year, comes many good
times, friends, and opportunities.
Good luck to all the students in
the new school year. especially the
juniors who have a very tough year
ahead. In all my senior wisdom, I
wish to tell all of the students to
get involved, learn something, and
have fun. 'Three things that never
come back: the spent arrow; the

NJROTC Trip to
Wakulla Springs
By Cadet Ensign Maggy Quaranta
On Friday, August 23; the
NJROTC cadets enjoyed their first
field trip at beautiful Wakulla
Springs. Testing their water.
survival skills, some cadets faced
their fears nand jumped off the
high wooden tower overlooking
the sparkling water. Plunging into
the freezing depth of blue wasn't
exactly a thrill for some as they
walked away with goosebumps
and chattering teeth. For most of
the unit, however, the rush of the
drop kept them cli-nbing back up
for more excitement.
While the tower proved as the
most exhilarating part of.the park."(
the sandy beach shaded by giant
trees was another favorite. At this
region, the cadets jumped off the
watersurrounded deck and
splashed into the cold water'
without the fear of height.
The overall conclusion of
gaining water survival skills"
resulted as a positive learning
experience for the 'whole unit.
Each cadet spent an amazing day
having fun with friends and, fellow
cadets, visiting a .remarkable
place of nature, and enjoying
being far away from school and
homework.
The NJROTC plans to have
many more field tnps throughout
the year with just as much funi
and learning and hopefully more
memories to share. Anchors

such an honor for our employees,
whose performance is the key
reason that we've been selected
for this award. Their commitment
to working safely at our plant.

Port St. Joe Police Dept.
Says Buckle Up Over
Labor Day Holiday
;The Port St. Joe Police
Department has a message for
those who are planning on taking,
one last Lnp before diving into the
school year: buckle up. According
to Buckle Up Florida. 22 people
were killed in traffic crashes over
the Labor Day weekend last year.
phief Carr wants Gulf County
r-sidents to protect themselves
during this busy time on Florida's
highways.
"We have to remember to
buckle up year round, but it
becomes especially important
when the roads are crowded." said
Chief Carr. Labor Day weekend is
a high-traffic period, and there
are a lot of distractions on the
road. We know that people who
are buckled up in crashes have a
better chance of not being injured
or killed. It just makes good sense
to wear a safety belt."
Chief Carr said that if
protecting yourself from a Grash is
not enough incentive to buckle
up. the fact that it's the law
should be.'The Port St. Joe Police
Department will be participating
in the Buckle Up Florida Labor
Day Safety Belt Enforcement
Wave from August 31st to
September 8th," he said. "We will
.be out there toensure safety, and
that includes making sure
everyone is buckled up. We have
made good progress with getting
more people buckled up. and now
we have to maintain that. We
won't be issuing warnings. When
it comes to buckling up. we mean
business."
S The last safety bielt enforce-
ment wave, called Click it or
Ticket, was a joint effort by law
enforcement across the state over
Memorial Day week. The
campaign achieved a 75.1 percent
S safety belt usage rate statewide.
the highest rate recorded to date
Sin Florida. Strict enforcement of
Florida's safety belt laws has
proven a major incentive in
getting more people to buckle up.
The Port St. Joe Police
Department participates in the
waves in an effort to reduce traffic
fatalities in Gulf County.:
Buckle up and arrive safe!

A Back to School Recipe for Success


September is synonymous
with back-to-school, and foremost
families that means shopping for
new clothes, backpacks, paper
and pens. If your son or daughter
is heading to college, the list will
also include sheets, towels, a
stereo and a computer. Either
way, don't overlook the
importance of providing a


comfortable, well-organized work
area to help your student
establish good study habits and,
more importantly, to achieve good
grades.
In your home, the area should
be away from household traffic
and. noise. Lighting should be
bright enough for reading and
writing and positioned so .that it,


'Co'eo R& RcR+4 qtoiC


does not shine directly onto the
monitor screen. Choose a desk
with a comfortably large work
surface.
If price is a consideration,
ready-to-assemble furniture is the
answer. In a- range of styles
designed to appeal to the taste.
and budget of every student,
ready-to-assemble furniture is


affordable, easy to put together
and is available immediately with
no need to wait for special
ordering. Sizes and features are ,
virtually unlimited, ranging from
full-size desks with built-in
hutches 'to personal computer
stations on casters for easy,
mobility.
Even the smallest dorm room
or home study area can
accommodate a corner work-
center v.ith multiple levels that
use vertical space to house
printers. files. CDs and software.
Some feature a raised monitor
shell for comfortable. ergo-
norrncallv correct viewing.


A good student is a well-
organized student. Providing your
- son or daughter diith the right
tools to work efficiently and
productively %v.ill go a long way
toward encouraging organization
and good study habits. It s a
recipe for success, guaranteed to
benefit your student today and for
years to come.

Bielinski Named Project Director


Julie Prevatt Bielinski has
been named the Project Director
for Elder' Care Services Senior
Service Corp Projects. Bielinski is
the current director of the Central
Panhandle RSVP Program and will
now assume responsibility-for the
Foster Grandparent (FGP) and
Senior .Companion Programs
(SCP) as well. RSVP, FGP and SCP
are all part of the National Senior
Service Corp under ,the Corp-
oration for National Service.
Bielinski will oversee over.
1,000 volunteers, who work
through approximately 175
agencies and provide services in
15 counties in the Panhandle.'
These counties include:. Gulf,
Franklin, 'Bay, Walton, Holmes,
Washington, Jackson, Calhoun,
Gadsden, Liberty, Leon, Wakulla;,
Jefferson, Madison and Taylor.


Julie Bielinski


The goal of all three senior
service corp 'programs is to offer
older Americans an opportunity to
impact their communities
through volunteer service. RSVP
volunteers, provide a variety of
services in many diverse settings
and choose the number of .hours
they wish to provide. Both FGP
and SCP volunteers are low
income and required to provide a
minimum of 20 hours per week of
services and are paid a stipend.
'FGP volunteers work with at-risk
children and SCP volunteers work
with frail older adults. ..
Bielinski says of her new
position, "I'm very honored to
have the opportunity to serve the
needs of both the senior adult
population and our communities
to help improve the quality of life
of our families, friends, and


neighbors.
For further information about
any of the Senior Service Corp
Programs contact Bielinski at
(850) 547-2511 or (850) 487-6252
or juliebielinski@wfeca.net.

Duck Hunting

Rules Changed.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service' today proposed to main-
tain -hunting regulations similar
to those offered in recent years for


post species o0 cucKs, out restrict
opportunities for some species
due to continuing concerns about
population status and a poor pro-
duction outlook this spring in key
nesting areas. Under the service's
late season frameworks proposal,
hunting-season lengths for pin-
tails will be much more restrictive
and the season for canvasbacks
will be closed.
For most duck species, how-
ever, the service is proposing to
continue the same season lengths
and bag limits that have been
offered since 1997. Earlier this
year, the service also. agreed to
extend by about a week the earli-
est opening and latest closing
dates that individual states can
useto set their hunting seasons.

Extension Notes

Gulf County Extension Service
M, \ ; :? : "' '


Love Bugs
"Love Bugs" are small black
flies with a red thorax. The males
are' one-quarter inch and the
females are one-third inch in
length. They are native to Florida
as well as other states and
countries bordering the Gulf of
Mexico and Caribbean Sea. Their
appearance in peninsular Florida
was :insignificant until recent
years..
Large flights of these insects
were reported in the Florida
panhandle as early as the late
1950s. However, southern
Louisiana had experienced them
in the 1920s. By 1969, mass
flights were reported over
approximately one-fourth of the
Florida peninsula.
Flights of "love-bugs" occur in
May and September. They extend
over about a four week period,
with the September flights usually
being the largest. During the
mating flights, the females will
.mate three to five times.
Female "love-bugs" lay
approximately 350 eggs ih or on.
the soil under partially decaying
vegetation. The larvae (imrnature
forms) develop in decaying
organic, matter, especially in
hardwQod hammocks. The larvae
feed on decaying vegetation, and
perform a useful function, by
converting it into available plant
foods. After the larvae mature,
they transform into pupae and the
adults emerge in about one week.
Adult "love-bugs" are
harmless and'do not sting or bite.
They feed on nectar and pollen of
,various: flowers, .. especially
. goldenrod and clover. The flight of
the "love-bug" is restricted to
daylight hours. At night they rest
in low-growing vegetation.
The problem associated with
the -love-bug" is the insects
spatter and stick to trucks and
automobiles traveling along ,
highways dunng daylight hours..,
Windshields covered with these
insects obscure the driver's
vision. These insects often clog
the cooling fins of the radiator and
may cause the car to overheat
when operated at high speeds for '
extended periods of time. Also. if.
the bugs are not cleaned off the
automobile in a reasonable penod
of time they will damage the car's
,finish.
Insecticid lI control of the
"love-bug" is u*npractical because
the%, occur over such a vast area.'
Also. they appear to have no
known natural predators or.
parasites that will significantly
reduce their population.
There are several things that
can be done to lessen the problem
facing motorists. Travel at night
or during the early morning hours
avoids the bugs since they do not
become active until about 10:00:
a.m. Traveling at slower speeds
reduces the number of bugs that
will be spattered. A large screen
placed in front of the grill will keep
the radiator fins from clogging
and will protect the finish on the
front of the car. If a large screen is.
not used in front of the gnill at
least place a small screen behind
the grill in front of the radiator.

Flexible Hours <


Spattered bugs should be
washed off the car as soon as
possible. "Love-bugs" are more,
easily removed and the chance of
damaging :the car's finish is,
lessened if the car has been more
recently waxed. If they are left on .
an unwaxed car for several days
its finish willl often be
permanently damaged.. Soaking
for several minutes with .water
aids in the removal. When "love-
bugs" are numerous, some
motorists spread a light film of
mineral or baby oil over the front
of the hood, above' the windshield
and on the grill,and bumper. This
practice will make their removal a
simpler task.

PUBLIC NOTICES







THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, AUG. 29, 2002


Sanchez has become some-
thing of a nomad in following
such orders.
This year alone he has been
in New York, Kentucky, New
Orleans and here in Port St. Joe.
And while there wasn't much
flag-waving and jaw-jutting patri-
otism on Staten Island, there was
nonetheless a sense of purpose.
'They were nice people, good
,people," Sanchez said. "People


were working together, I never
* had any problems."
Thursday should see one of
the more striking sights of the
mill demolition.,
That is the scheduled day.
when a precipitator, the size of
which is measured in tens of tons,
is moved onto a barge for trans-
port to the Smurfit-Stone mill in
Panama City.
Over the past couple of


weeks, workers have separated
the predipitator from the building
to which it was attached, raised it
with wooden beams and moved it
a few inches west.
The wooden beams were then
methodically removed, lowering
the huge building onto a set of, for
lack of a better term, wheels.
The plan is to roll the building
down a ramp onto -the barge,
'which is already in place in the
bay behind the mill.


Crews, from JWA. out of
Louisiana cut steel beams and
girders into 5x3 pieces. The com-
pany is the same company which
cut down the shards of steel from
the World Trade Center after the
9/11 terrorist attacks. The com-
p pany will cut 40-75 tons :of steel
a day at the mill site.


Demolition
(Continued from Page 1A)
"It was the same job, the
same work," Sanchez said, in his
thick Hispanic/Cajun accent.
"Everything was pretty much the
same. The company sent me and
just said cut it. I cut it and that's
it.
"It was a little different in one
way, because the material was all
so good. But you just go and do
(the job)."


A crane with magnet
attached moves steel around for
the burners, or cutters, to work
o,. IThe cut steel is loaded into
rail cars for shipment around the
world.

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS
TO BE VOTED ON NOVEMBER 5,2002

NOTICE OF ELECTION

I, Jim Smith, Secretary of State of the State of Florida, do hereby give notice that an
election will be held in each county in Florida, on November 5, 2002 for the ratification
or rejection of proposed constitutional amendments of the State of Florida:.

NO.1
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
ARTICLE I, SECTION 17
(Legislative)

BALLOT TITLE: Excessive Punishments

BALLOT SUMMARY: Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution identical tc
a proposed amendment to Section 1.7 of Article I of the State Constitution which was
approved by a statewide vote in 1998.'The Supreme Court of Florida struck the 1998
amendment in 'a ruling in which four of the seven justices found that the ballot summary
was inaccurate,. The proposed amendment expressly authorizes the death penalty for
capital crimes, and expressly authorizes retroactive .changes in the method of execution
The amendment changes the prohibition against "cruel or unusual punishment," currently
provided in Section 17 of Article..I of the State Constitution, to a prohibition against
"cruel and unusual punishment" to conform with the wording of the Eighth Amendmen'
to the United States Constitution. The amendment prohibits reduction of a death sentence
based on invalidity of an execution method and provides for continued force of 'the
sentence. The amendment permits any execution method unless prohibited by the Unitec
States Constitution. The amendment requires construction of the prohibition against cruel
or unusual punishment and the proposed prohibition against cruel and unusuala
punishment to conform to United States Supreme Court interpretation of the Eighth
Amendment to 'the United States Constitution. The amendment would prevent state
courts, including the Florida Supreme Court, from treating the state constitutional
prohibition against cruel or unusual punishment as being more expansive than the federal
constitutional prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment or United States Supreme
Court interpretations thereof. The amendment effecnvel. nullifies rights currently
allowed under the state prohibition against cruel or unusual punishment which may afford
greater protections for those subject to punishment for crimes than will be provided by
the amendment Under the amendment, the protections afforded those subject tc
punishment for crimes under the "cruel or unusual punishment" clause, as that clause
currently appears in Section 17 of Article I of the State Constitution, will be the same as
the minimum protections provided under the "cruel and unusual" punishments clause o
the Eighth Amendment to the ULnited States Constirution. The amendment provides foi
retroactive applicability.
Specifically, the proposal amends Section 17 of Amcle I of the State Constitution, to read
as set forth below. The word stricken is a deletion, words underlined are additions:
SECTION 17. Excessive: punishments.--Excessive, fines, cruel and er unusual
,punishment, attainder, forfeiture of estate, indefinite imprisonment, and unreasonable
.detention of witnesses are forbidden. Thieath penalty is an authorized punishment for
capital crimes designated by the legislarare The prohibition against .cruel of unusual
punishment, and the prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment, shall be construed
in conformity with decisions of the-United 'States Supreme Court which interpret the
prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment provided in the Eighth Amendment to
the United States Constitution: Any method"of execution shall be allowed, unless
nrnhihited hv the I I united States Constitution. Methods of execution may' be designated by


p
the legislature, and a change in any method of execution may be applied retroactively. A
sentence of death shall not be reduced on the liasis that a triethod of executions invalid.
I i whi h t ti th d i declared invalid the death se l


remain in force until the sentence'can be lawfully executed by any valid method: This
section shall apply retroactively.

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.



fYou 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.




If you are interested in finding out more about this and


if you can qualify, call Alan Potts at
