County Comm.


Sets Tentative


Rates at 6.675

Board Agrees to Revisit
Budget Numbers Mon.
Gulf County Commissioners
held .their first public budget
hearing Tuesday afternoon as
they moved one step closer to
finalizing next year's budget.
During the session several
residents voiced objections and
concerns over the 16.39%- tax
increase the proposed village
rate, 6.5750, equates to. None of
the residents asked the board to
reduce the village rate to the roll
back rate but rather that the
board find ground somewhere in
between the roll back rate and the
proposed increase.
Harold Bost told commis-
sioners how taxes on his beach
property will increase from
$10,885 to approximately
$13,000 this year because of
increased property values coupled'
with the current village rate pro-
posed by the county.

6th Annual


Scallop Festival



Was Great Event

1640 pounds of scallops is a pile of scallops. That's how
many pounds were sold and served during the 6th Annual
Scallop Festival over the weekend.
Most regular visitors to the event immediately noticed a
few things were different about this year's event.
First, there were actually real scallops sold during the
event. This is something new. Last year there was consider-
ation being given to changing the name of the festival
because of the lack of presence of real scallops at the event.
There was a pre-manufactured duplication of something
that was called a,scallop served during last year's event. An
investigation as to the origin of those critters was launched,
but even experts such as Eugene Raffield liad a difficult time
telling exactly what those things were.
Runior has it that Ann. White still has one of those imi-
tations tucked away in her freezer just in case further study
and analysis is required.
These w4rere the '"sure enough" teal thing being sold this
year aid they were without .question ,.a very tasty hit.
The other thing that -was immediately noticed as being.
different was that the event was held on Reid Avenue in the
business district of town rather than at Frank Pate, Jr. Park.
'This also was a very positive move for the community,
local business owners and those visiting the area.
Throughout the course of the event I personally had no less
than a dozen people, including former FSU quarterback
Casey Weldon's father, tell me how much better the event
was held ,in the downtown area.
Nothing against the park, but festivities such as this
. shouild.serve to promote, encourage, and display our com-
munity's businesses, civic organizations, church groutsand
locaftalent. This mixture of ingredients mae for a wonder-
ful Scallop Festival experience.
Much credit for the success of the event needs to be given
to the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce and Executive
Director Sandra Chafin for organizing the event and making
some very positive changes that will make future Scallop
Festivals bigger and better than ever.
I would not even begin to try and name all the folks who
in some way or another helped make the event possible: but
they all deserve a great big-Thank You!
Chafin said to her knowledge the only real complaint she
was aware of was that the scallops couldn't be cooked fast
enough. Some of the lines did get a little long, but plans are
already being made to correct that problem before next
year's event.
PSJ City Commissioner Benny Roberts said Chamber
Director Jerry Stokoe stopped him in the middle of the road
the other day and was already beginning to make plans for
next year's event.
There is an air of excitement following the energy creat-
ed by the success of this year's event.- -,
I understand that next year there are even plans to order
more of those real scallops for all to enjoy.


I just stopped by for the mul-
let.

heard the unmistakable voice of

was a number one song for Hank
-back in 1954. It was still on the
jukebox out at the Duxie Coffee
Cup in 1959 when Skip Trevathan
broke up with Gravlene Lemonds.
Skip took it pretty hard and he
'bout drove us nuts playing that
song over and over.

He pined for two whole weeks!
I think he could have gone longer
but Nola Purcell strolled over and
asked him to buy her a cherry
coke. It was true love from the first
sip!
I realized Ken Murphy was In
charge of the music and I forgot all
about the fish. I hurried over to tell
him about Skip and Graylene and
see if he had Johnny Horton's I

But I'll Go Chasing Women. .
Ken is to country music what
Julia Child is to cooking.
He played a classic by Red
Foley and Ernest Tubb. We talked
about the genius of Roger Miller,
the failing health of Johnny Cash
and the hot and cold, blue
Hawaiian steel guitar sounds of
Mr. Shot Jackson.
He played Yes, AMr. Peters by
handsome and husky Roy Drusky.
I was explaining to. some good
friends that this park might be the
only place left in America where
they could hear a Roy Drusky song
when Cathy interrupted-she
brought me a fish plate and gently
(but firmly) reminded me that
Jesse was leaving tomorrow and
we were doing a little family bond-
ing before he left. Eddie Arnold cut
down .on Bouquet of Roses. "Jess,
who is singing this song?"
You can't beat a little country
music interacting with your son.
He pondered for a second, "Ferlin
Husky."' .-- -
I was kinda proud that he did-
n't say Aaron Tippin or Toby. Keith.
We finished off the mullet and
were preparing to leave when Ken
pulled out a Leroy Van Dyke clas-
sic from 1961. As ole Leroy hit'the
first line of -Walk On By (Wait On

WE Love Our Baseball


PORT ST. JOE HAS always
had a love affair with the game of
baseball.
I say that to start off this,
blurb this week,' hesitant in my
words because of the" threatened
baseball player's strike. Kesley
,predicted. last week, that, cooler
heads_ would'prevail, and theie's'
no way that' burich .of .million-
aires would cut off the goose that
laid their golden egg. Why. they
might starve to death if that reg-
ular pay check were to be inter-
erupted for any length of time.
But, back,to Port St. Joe's
., love affair with baseball.
It has always been that way;
even before the coming of St. Joe
Paper Company was a gleam in
anybody's eye.
Even -during the depression
when a job couldn't be'ha'd and
there wasn't such a thing as even
a dollar,' much less a million
bucks to pay a player with. a
good baseball player could find a
job which would pay him enough
to eat and sleep in Port St. Joe,.


THE AN RAILROAD was in
chapter I 1 bankruptcy then, but
they Ibeing the largest employer
in town could always find a few
pennies to pay a good ballplayer.
That's how the late H.. A.
Drake, Ralph Swatts and George
Suber, Sr., came to this area.
They were good ballplayers and
all started out with the railroad.
*Drake later became the ppstmas-
ter, ':b.ut beforethat, he'was a..

THE BLACK COMMUNITY
had their own team at the time. I
worked at The Star as a teen age
boy, and printed posters for their
games. They featured Nathan
Peters, Sr. on the posters,,; as
their premier homerun hitter.
The Buie boys played' on
those old Gulf Coast "Sluggers"
teams, along with Phelma Oats,
who still loves the game.
I remember one .Sunday
afternoon, a bunch of us boys
were throwing the. baseball
around on the diamond and a
group of the "Sluggers" wandered
in to practice and started playing
with us boys.
Phelma-got to pitching "bat-
tming practice' for us and had'all
us'-boys "balling out" with, his
- curve ball'startirig on a trajecto-

would curve and come straight
over the plate.

who played the "Sluggers" could


ever hit that curve ball'.

are still alive. Those I know
about are: Leonard, Belin, Cliff

"Fish" Herring. I'll i3t.-they don't

either.
I'll also bet they could tell

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, SEPT. 5, 2002 PAGE 3A


Whistle
shell for one of those huge battle-
,ship, guns, the kind that signalled
'the' arrival of the ,Allies during
World War II.
The only indications of the
whistle's true use are the flanged-
ahd-grooved ends and, on its side,
the bolted plug that,rharks where
the steam was pumped to pro-
duce a sound that could be heard
far beyond the confines of down-
town or Oak, Grove.
Exactly ho.w far remains a
topic of some debate, but let's just
say it echoed through the trees
. and water around Port St. Joe.
"You could hear that thing for
.20 miles if the. conditions were
right," Howell said.
City Commissioner .Benny
' Roberts, whose wife Ann is
"Jacqueline Quarles' sister, and
who- worked for a time at "Ken-
ney's Sawmill", said, "With a west
wind you could hear that whistle
in White City," about 7-9 miles
away from the mill.
Sounding the whistle was the
responsibility :of the workers in
the Turbine. Room, according to
long-time' mill worker Bill Riley,'
and they did it "manually and


(from Page 1)

strictly by memory."
Only once or twice was it for-
gotten, because, heck, some peo-
ple might forget to take their med-
icine if they didn't hear that loud
belch of steam at the appropriate
hour.
And mill veterans describe
not a shrill ear-splitter, but a low
moan like that on a barge or tug-
boat headed out to sea.
"It wasn't an annoying
sound," Roberts said. "It was a
low whistle, like a loud low hum."
The exact origin of the mill
whistle seems to be something of
a mystery, a mix of legend, tales,
passed generation to generation
and, in part, buried with so many.
According to Riley, the Whistle
came to the Kenney Sawmill some
sometime in the 1940s.
The path could have been
sawmill to sawmill, from Bagdad
to Caryville to Blountstown to
Kenney's before the paper mill.
Kenney descendants attest
that the whistle resided in
Caryville for a long spell before
ending up in 'Blountstown;
according to Riley.
That is a version to which


"It was like a town, a commu-
nity," said Ann Roberts.
Howell said, '"There were more
people in Kenney than in Port St.
Joe at one time, about 3,000, and
on the weekends they would over-
run the place. You couldn't walk
down the street (in Port St. Joe}."
Roberts hopes to use part of a
grant he is seeking,for improve-

the whistle up as a kind of monu-

Maybe, he said, during a hol-
iday festival or the like, there
could be a raffle or contest toearn
the right to rattle the town once
more with the sound that sig-
nalled life for a small town a long
time ago.
But for now, as a community
breathes back to life, the mill is
coming down and the whistle
silently sits, a touchstone to
another time and, seemingly,
another world.


This locomotive used to transport lumber for the St. Joe Lumber and
ExportCo. now resides next to the Centennial Building in Port St. Joe.


Howell also attests:
There is also a version, Riley
said, 'in which the whistle came
from a ,disassembled mill in
Alabama or Georgia, ,went, to
Blountstown and ultimately High-

PSJ Opens Garbage Proposals


Port St. Joe city commission-
ers received two proposals to pro-
:vide garbage service' to city
residents.
:The proposals came from
SWaste Management 'and .Big
Wheel Recycling. Inc., ,and fell
close enough to the same figures
to require further evaluation
before the board decides which
direction they want to go.
City residents currently pay,
$16 per month for garbage and
trash pick up. This includes twice
.per week garbage pick up. The
proposals received gave priices of
$12.75 (Big Wheel), .and $12.21
(Waste Management) for twice-
Sweekly garbage service. These fig-
Ares do not include trash pick up.
Commissioners plan on using the
difference between the: contrac-
tor's price and the $16 rate to
continue road, side trash pick up
service within the city.
Both bids included, prices for
commercial garbage pick up 'and
breaks for low income needs. The
board will. meet on Tuesday,
September 10at,4 Jip.t.' to'lfank
the two 'proposals. Aftere-rating
.-them they will meet-with the top
ranked candidate- and work on
final details of an agreement.,

School Health Program


Doing Well For Gulf County


by Tim Croft
Amy Heath wrestled with her
direction in life, attempting to
choose between being a teacher or
becoming a nurse.
Now, as .the registered nurse
for Port St. Joe schools since
1998, she has. found the right
marriage between those goals.
"This was perfect," she said,
recently: from the Health Room at
Port- St. Joe Elementary. "I just
enjoy being around the kids. They
are' a lot of fun, they keep us
entertained. -
"The kids seem so apprecia-
tive. It's awesome. I'm very happy
with my job. You couldn't pry this,
job from my hands."
Rosalind Bryant, a health


aide at Port St. Joe Elementary,
exhibits a similar passion for her
job.
She should. It took her three
interviews to land the job, finally
quoting Scripture about persis-
tence to the person who inter-
viewed her the third time.
"I always wanted this job,"
Bryant said. "I love helping peo-
ple."
Such emotional involvement
in work could define the nine-
member health team, employed
by the County Health Department
to work in the district's public
schools.
Called on for everything from
handing out a Tylenol to catheter-
ization, they answer for the more


than 2,100 district students and
employees.
It is a program unlike any-
thing you'll see just next door, in
Bay County.
"Being rural we need it,"'said
program coordinator Regina
Washabaugh. "The rural need is
much more important."';
There are, nurses, Heath and
Ann Morris, for Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka schools, respective-
ly. .
Health aides, Chnstine Bird,
(PSJHS), Monica Tarantmo
(PSJM), Bryant, Janice Forehand
(WHS/WMS) and Brandy Martin
(WES), are at each school.
Hubert Six is the social work-
er on the team.

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.


If you are interested in finding out more about this and

if you can qualify, call Alan Potts at

year, there were 31,465 visits to
school health rooms, 6,974 prec-
scription medications adminis-
tered and 3,541 students treated
with Tylenol.
SBr'ant said it was "not
unusual" for her to see anywhere
from 40-90 kids in any given day.
There has also been a dra-
matic upswing in tough cases, the
complicated' sort far beyond the
realm of checking for head lice

school nurse's job. ,'.
Kids with asthma, cystic
ffbrosis, .bleeding disorders, and
serious allergies', tasks such as.

becomes more complicated so too
d does the job of school health
workers.
"We have a' lot of complicated,
health issues, \'Wahabatugh said.
"It has really become that way inf
the last-two years,",
As the issues become compli-
cated. the programs offered in the
school become more broad-based.
and m-depth.

students has become more and
more of an issue are done in

are a priority, with help coming

from Florida State University.
There is also a course for highly :
schoolers concerning sexually'.'
transmitted diseases and teen te
pregnancy. .
The program, Washabaugh.,
said, can save lives, and is also in-
some measure seen as responsi-.
ble for the district's teen- pregnan-
cy rate of less than 1 .percent. -
"They are very interested,"
Heath, said. "I believe it helps
them 'to think about protecting; '"
themselves..

well as state money received from

S It is a wide-ranging and co6m-
prehensive school health pro-
gram, operated by individuals,
whose joy of work would be the
' envy of employees anywhere ,
"I just love it," Bryant said. "I
enjoy it. You have a lot of funny
,episodes. I try to have patience, I -
am concerned and I love kids. "


'To know: you were able to
S. help somebody, it feels pretty

And the rev.ards are so often
tangible and immediate.

S First. thank you to all of the wonderful people of Gulf County who have taken
the opportunity to listen to my ideas for our Judiciary and have supported me .in this.
campaign. In my attempt to visit with the voters of Gulf County, I have walked through
most of your neighborhoods and have truly enjoyed seeing old friends and meeting
many new folks along the way. As a lifelong native of Gulf County, it is amazing to see
just how large our "little" County has become..

Although I hae met with many of you, the duties of a full time law practice
have prevented me the opportunity to meet with all of the voters in the county. For
those of you whom I have not yet personally visited, let me assure you that as your
Judge, I will be accessible to the community, unbiased in my judgements, and energetic.
in my ability to serve the increasing needs of our court system as our County continues
to grow. A County Judge handles many different areas ofthe law and your County
Judge should have a hands-on background in a wide variety of legal topics. Over the
years, I have tried numerous Civil, Family Law and Criminal cases throughout the
Courts of the Florida Panhandle before both Juries and at Bench Trial. My practical
experience in the law. my commitment to upholding an independent and fair courtroom,
and my ability to relate to the people of Gulf County.make me the right choice for your
SCounty Judge.

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


Thank You!

;understand it better if they knew
their taxes could actually go down-

growth 'can't continue in the

Roland Wilson told the board
about his dream to retire here (in

tax base here I'm not sure' I can
afford to retire here," he said.
"My taxes are more than all
five of ya'lls put together," Mary

Carmen' McLemore responded to0
,Conroy that her property was
probably' worth more.
Conroy retorted, "Yes, but as

'down?" She went on to request

also. She pointed out that close to

property taxes. She suggested-
that many 'small business owners
across the county are faced with a
very similar problem and maybe
the county could look at tax caps

I .Today, we rely upon the physician to diagnose the health
problem and specify the medicine best qualified to correct it. We as

Gulf, Franklin and Bay Arts


Council Starts Taking Shape


by Tim Croft
An arts council to serve Gulf.
Franklin and eastern Bay coun-
ties has chosen the canvas, now
the shapes and colors have to be
filled in.
At a recent meeting, a grow-
ing group of art devotees voted to
establish an arts council to serve
the immediate area. from Carra-
belle to Mexiaco Beach.
Representatives from all
three counties voted unanimously
to form a tn-county arts council,"
said Kim Harrison of Port St. Joe.
the county volunteer coordinator
for the project.
* "We have voted, to go onto the
next stage.
That stage is to establish var-
ious committees to fill in the
numbers on the council's outline.
That includes panels for
strategic planning. fundraising
Sand membership drives and.
may.be.most importantly. the wrint-
ing of a lision/mission statement.
'What are we? Who are we


serving?" Harnson said. 'Once we
know that how are we going to
serve them?
'That is all going to be huge.
very important."
A committee will also be
formed to establish the guidelines
for a board. with equal represen-
tation from all three counties.
Since early summer an ever-
Slarger group of area folks have
been meeting. with the help of an
arts consultant hired through
state grants. to establish the fea-
sibility of creating a regional arts
council and what sort of projects
that council would undertake.
After a sees of about a half
dozen meetings, the group has
laid a foundation for building the
tn-county arts council.
Now the real work begins.
"We have to figure out what
are the first one or two projectst)
we are going to do." Harnson said.
In a series of votes, the group
has honed in on two areas.

One is arts education, creat-
ing programs. possibly partnering

dren of all ages.

tant role in arts and education."
Hamrson said. 'After-school art.

dren. but seniors and adults.
period."
The other focus area is lunng
artists and performers to the
area. the vision being that of a
sees of programs that would
rotate among the three counties.
The group is in the process.of
applying for a state Local Arts
Agency Start Lip Grant. which
could be up to S5.000 to facilitate
the establishment of the council
and its initial programs.
A push is also on for more
immediate funding Lo hire anoth-
er consultant to work nth t.he' ,

stage. -
'What we are really hoping is
we can raise some funds now so
we can hire another consultant
for this second phase." Harrison
said. "That is very important so it
comes out the way we want it to
be." ,:
Public forums will be held '
sometime in the foreseeable
future and the council, once in
place, will go before respective
elected city and county commis-
sions for resolutions designating.
it as the area arts council.

Panhandle.
"You can't describe it," Reeves
said. "It was so powerful to visit
that, site. It was like the reverence
youd ,see at a -cemetery.
"But you can't keep holding
onto the past. you must move for-
ward.-That's what you see in New'
York City. people are moving on
with-their lives."
Just as Reeves and so many
others are doing. some here, some
not. in the aftermath of the clos-
ing of-the paper mill.
*ReAves,. in fact, was sitting in
his furniture store when the past
* came- calling, beckoning him to
New York.
The past was on the other end
of the phone. w
The caller was a public rela-
d ioris man. for Charlie King. a can-
didate for- lieutenant governor in
New York.
In New York, the governor
and lieutenant governor are elect-
ed separately ,
The name of King's opponent,
in turned out, was far too familiar
to Reeyes: Dennis Mehiel, whose
Four M Co. Was one half of the
partnership .that created Florida
Coast Paper LLC. :,
Florida Coast purchased the
St. Joe paper million 1996 and.two'
years later the mill was closed for
good. ,
For many Mehiel's picture
. belonged as a fine backdrop for. a
dart board.
SIr any case, the caller, having


done some research on Mehiel
had come across articles in busi-
ness magazines and newspapers
which featured Reeves, former
head of the local paper workers
union and an employee of the mill
for 20 years.,
The caller wondered if Reeves
would be interested in coming to,
New York to provide a fresh turn
on Mehiel's political spin regard-
;ing the candidate's link to the
working man.
"He's running for lieutenant',
governor and portraying himself
as the working man's friend, the
unions, love him and that he had
taken distressed businesses,
turned them a rou nd and prcovtded
opportunities for working men,"
Reeves said.
"When I heard th4t I started
laughing. We knew who he was
just like we knew who Roger:'
Stone (of Stone Container, the
other half of Florida Coast) was."
Still, Reeves was hesitant.,
"I'm sitting here minding my
own business," he said. "I'm wor-,
ried about selling furniture. I'm
not worried about politicians in
New York."
But with some persuading'
, Reeves was on a plane ,;to New.
York. .. .
Over .five days he filmed a
commercial and was featured at
press conferences in Buffalo,.
Rochester and New York City in
Support of King, or more specili-
cally in opposition to Mehiel.
"I thought I had a platform to
tell the ruth about what .h'ap-
pened here and-to this communi-
ty,"' Reeves, said. (Mehiel) is
spending a million dollars to get
elected to an honorable position
and'he brought no honor to this
community. '
"I've gotten on with my life.
but bad things happen when good
men fail to act."
.Needless to say, in the rotigh
and tumble arena iof politics, par-.


ticularly New York, which could
be labeled the WWF of political
campaigning, Mehiel's campaign
denounced Reeves' assertions and
presence as a sign of King's des-
peration:
Reeves could care less.
"I .lived what he done to this
town and this area," he said. ,"I
have no regrets for (going to New
York)."
The most significant part of
his itinerary was the. stop at
Ground Zero, an experience that
defied a thesaurus full ol adjec-
tives.
"People were so quiet." Reeves.
said. '"They were ver emotional.
"The sense of reverence was,
there. To have had that opportu-
nity ,to see and' experience that
made Ithe trip) all, worthwhile.".
Whi\\ch is not to, say he is fri
arin hurry to return.
: "I wanted to: kiss the ground
when I got/back1 to Port'St. Joe;,"
Reeves said. "I thank God for our
little town." .

To the People of Gulf County,

Much has been said throughout this judicial campaign about
honesty, integrity, and fairness. I pledge to you that I will
remain independent in my judgements if I am elected your next
Gulf County Judge. ,


The scales justice are blind for a reason.

Everyone has the right to expect an impartial and fair judge
with no bias, one way or another. It is my deeply held belief
that nothing should undermine the independence of the
courtroom.


As you probably know, political campaign contributions in County Judicial
Elections are a matter of public record in Florida. I have made a personal
decision to keep our courtroom independent of perceived influences, so I have
not accepted campaign contributions from anyone with close relationships to the
court. However, my opponent has accepted money from people such as
practicing attorneys, the Sheriff of Gulf County, and the recent City Chief of
Police.


Democracy requires full faith that justice will be administered with absolute
impartiality. In my opinion, that faith .is certainly 'challenged if we enter a
courtroom knowing that our opponent has contributed money to our trial judge's
last election campaign or that judge was endorsed for election by someone that
opposes our position in court., That these are both legal activities offers little
comfort in view of their corrosive effect on public confidence in the court
-,' system.


I assure you that if I am honored to be elected as your next Gulf County Judge, I
will remain impartial and approachable. Most importantly, I will dq everything
within my power to instill and preserve your faith, confidence and respect in
our county court system.


I humbly ask for your support and vote on Tuesday, September 101h.

fumbled the -snap on the next
play, but recovered the ball in the
end zone to give the Sharks a 6-0
' lead with 2:21 left in the half.

Fried scallop dinners were a
tremendous hit this year.
Chamber Director Sandra Chafin
and Elaine Vereen thaw out
frozen scallops prior to deep fry-
ing them. Numerous volunteers
helped the Chamber to produce
the 6th Annual Scallop Festival.
The only thing which didn't
cooperate was the weather, with
rain storms periodically deluging
the area. A number of vendors
had also watched the, weather
channels, and didn't show, think-
ing that the festival would be
rained out. Thousands of people
waited for clear -skies and the
downtown area was teeming with
people when it wasn't raining.

Moving Mountains of Steel
'M -,-M o+ n"


by Tim Croft
Ducky Johnson touts, his
business as a mover of houses.
Turns out the Marianna busi-
ness can also move mountains.
Last week a small battalion.of
the firm's workers labored to
move a precipitator from the
paper mill site onto a barge for
transport to the Smurfit-Stone
Mill in Panama City.
Which all sounds quite simple
and easy until you consider that
the precipitator weighs, according
to a spokesman with Entech, the
Pensacola company coordinating
the move, which is roughly 860
tons.
That's 1,720,000 pounds.
Combined with the network of
wheeled dollies placed under-
neath the precipitator for trans-
port, the total weight was about 2
million pounds.
A precipitator is an electro-
static air filter.
It stood attached to a gaping
blower six or so stories high
which pushed air from the boiler
room into the precipitator.
The dirt in the air would then
stick to a series of three magne-
tized plates, the plates a little
thinner as the air moved across
the unit and then is released.
While it may appear like air
polluting smoke, it is actually
steam-cleaned air being emitted,
the Entech spokesman said.
To free the precipitator for
transport, the unit was raised
slightly with huge jacks so work-
ers could go between the blower
and precipitator and remove all
connecting metal.
Once free from the blower
complex. the precipitator was
slowly lowered onto wood blocks.
the rough equivalent of railroad
ties and ultimately the e-xpansive
dolly system.
Then came the trcky part of
rolling the precipitator a couple of
hundred yards or so onto a barge,
which was pulled' by a tugboat
called The Cheetah.


According to the Entech
spokesman, the company could
not find a barge big enough along
the Gulf Coast and therefore had
to go to Jacksonville to find one.
To get the precipitator to the
barge, a path of wood, 2x6s, 2x8s
or something equivalent, was laid
from the precipitator to the bay.
Then. like playing a large-
scale version of the table game
Jenga. the precipitator was moved
as workers picked up and reset
the wood blocks to extend the
trail.
It didn't help much that a vio-
lent thunderstorm belched and
drowned the tedious work with
the precipitator still 40 or so feet
from the barge.
Once the lightning dissipated,
however, and the rain slowed to at


least a slow drizzle, the preclpita-
tor and the crew were again on
the move.
When the structure was final- Y
ly on the barge. congratulations
were in order, as the crew posed
for pictures and slapped backs.
By the weekend the precipita-
tor was waiting on the water out-
side the Smurfit-Stone plant in
Panama City.
In the coming weeks, it will be
moved, all 860 tons of it. roughly
a mile over land. around the wood
yard and rail yard to its place at
the mill.
It should be running, the
Entech spokesman said by
November.
The reason for all the effort
was simple dollars and cents: 'a
new precipitator costs S8 million.


about double the cost of moving
one from Port St.-Joe to Panama
City'
'Additionally, the precipitator
moved last week was just four
years old and during two of those
years It was completely shut
down.
For Ducky Johnson. a short
wiry man of gruff speech and sin-
gular purpose, none of that mat-
tered.
Entech had used his compa-
ny for similar projects before, but
there was nonetheless reason for
celebration.
He and his team, movers of
houses, had pushed a 2 million
pound peak. The smile on his face
reflected a feeling Thursday after-
noon that they could move just
(See Move on Page 9B)


A precipitator .rolls along &
track of wood on its way to a
barge in the bay and ultimately
the Smurfit-Stone paper mill in
Panama City. Workers stand by
to move any wood as necessary
as the precipitator is inched for-
- .ward.


This is the view from the barge as the precipitator covers the
final feet to its destination in the middle of the barge.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, SEPT. 5, 2002


Francis Bellamy (1855-1931),
a Baptist minister, wrote the orig-
inal Pledge of Allegiance in August
1892. He was a Christian
Socialist. The Pledge was pub-
lished in the September 8th issue.
of The Youth's Companion, the
leading family magazine of its day.
Its editor, Daniel Ford, 'hired


Francis in 1891 as his assistant
when Francis was pressured into
leaving his Baptist church in
Boston because of his socialist
sermons.
In 1892 Francis Bellamy was
the chairman of a. committee of
state superintendents of educa-
tion in the National Education
Association. As its chairman, he
prepared the program for the pub-
lic schools' quadricentennial cele-
bration for Columbus Day in
1892. He structured this public
school program around a flag
raising ceremony and a flag
salute-his Pledge of Allegiance.
His original Pledge read as fol-
lows: 'I, pledge allegiance to my
Flag and (to*) the Republic for
which it stands, one nation, indi-
visible, with liberty and justice for
all." He considered placing the
work, 'equality' in his Pledge, but
knew that* the state superinten-
dents of education on his commit-
tee were against equality for
women and African Americans.
[*to added in October, .1892 1.


In 1923 and 1924 the
National Flag Conference, under
the leadership of the American
Legion and the Daughters of the
American Revolution, changed the
Pledge's words, 'my Flag' to 'the
Flag of the United States of
America'. Bellamy disliked this
change, but his protest was
ignored.
In 1954, Congress after a
campaign by the Knights of
Columbus, added the words,
'under god' to the Pledge. The
Pledge was now both a patriotic
oath and a public prayer.
Bellamy's granddaughter said
he .also would have resented this
second change. He had been pres-
'sured into leaving his church in
1891 because of his socialist ser-
mons. In his retirement in
Florida, he .stopped attending
church because he disliked the
racial bigotry he found there.
On June 26 of this year a fed-
eral appeals court ruled that The
Pledge of Allegiance, recited by.
millions of American children at
' the start of each school day, is
unconstitutional because it
describes the United States as
"one Nation, under God". A three-
judge panel of the U.S. Court of
Appeals ruled 2 to 1 .that the ref-
erence to God amounts to an offi-
cial endorsement of mono-theism.
Thus, the San Francisco-based
court said that requiring teachers
to lead children in the pledge vio-
lates the First Amendment prohi-
bition against the establishment
of a state religion. If the ruling is
allowed to stand, school children
could no longer recite the pledge,
at least in the nine western states
covered by the court. .Regardless
of- their personal views, parents
are encouraged to discuss the sig-
nificance. this holds with their
children. .
September 11, 2002 is soon
approaching. On that day. stu-
dents and facul't; members are;
asked to wear red, whitel and blue'
tolshdw support for those who lost
their lives on 9-11-01 and to
honor the heroes who worked to
saveP hem and .the, families left

Teen Court Receives Funds


by Tim Croft
There is a federal pot of
money that police departments

deemed a solid success.
Witten said more than 100
adults and teenagers, mostly
teenagers, had Volunteered for the
program.
Twenty more have signed, on
as volunteers since the beginning
of school.
"But wve are always looking for
more volunteers," Witten said.
Teen Court is a diversion pro-,
gram for teens who have commit-
ed generally minor infractions in
or out of school.
The program is completely

The jury weighs evidence and
hands out penalties from a pre-
scribed set of guidelines. ranging
from letters' of apologies to com-

To date, Teen Cotirt, which

If the idea 'of gardening has

.Gardening 'Association. 45
Percent of Americans garden in
their yards and 40 percent
provide food for wild birds.
Among the reasons
Americans love to garden is that

natural world on a daily basis and
to connect with, Mother Nature.,
It's also a wonderful way \to
provide a wildlife habitat., This

conditions.. The most important
thing is to grow vegetables: you
and your family like to eat.
The first consideration in
planning your garden is where to
put it. You want it fairly close to
your house, so it's handy to work
in. You want it near an outside
wafer faucet, so that irrigation
isn't a problem. But, the thing you
really want to be sure about is
proper light. If possible, locate the
garden so it gets full sunlight all.
day. Unfortunately, few of us
enjoy that luxury. So, we have to
choose between morning sun,and
afternoon sun. In any case, plant
fruitirng crops, such as tomatoes,
corn, cucumbers and melons
where they will get the most sun.
Leaf and root crops generally can'
stand a little shade.
You might want to fence your
garden to keep out~'nuisances
such ,as. dogs and children. In
some areas, wild animals such'as
!coons and rabbits are a problem.
A'fence also will serve as a trellis
;for .pole' beans, tomatoes. and
other crops that need support.,
In some cases you'll also have
to protect your crops from nearby
trees and shrubs. Tree and shrub
roots will compete with vegetables
for nutrients aind water. So to give-
your crops the edge. dig a trench

deep all around the garden. Line
one side of the trench with roofing
paper or plastic film, and fill it in
again. This will form a barrier
against the roots of nearby land-
scape plants.
Of course, good soil is impor-
tant. UAfortunately, as backyard
gardeners, most of us have to do
the best.we can with the kind of
soil we have. However we can give
our gardens a boost by mixing in
organic materials-things like
manure and compost. With such
supplements, we can grow vegeta-
bles even if our home soil is noth-
ing but sand.
' Before you ever plant the .,first
seeds or transplants, you need to
think about 'the vegetable varieties
you'll clioose to, grow. Of course
you could walk into your-garden
center and buy whatever you see.
But remember vegetable varieties
differ in quality. And; they vary in
both 'disease resistance and cli-.
matic adaptability- factors %which
can be vitally important. To find
out which varieties are recom-
mended for you, consult a copy of
the extension circular "The
Vegetable Gardening Guide". Your

Put More Money


In Your Pocket


Following a lightning-dotted downpour, workers adjust and secure the dolly system in preparation, of
moving their cargo the final few yards to the barge for transport to, Panama City.


National Payroll Week,
September 2 to 6-or any time--is
a good time to learn how. to,
increase your paycheck's payoff
and put more money in your
pocket. Whether workforce
veterans, students with a summer
job, or just out of college, most,
iipeople rely unquestioningly on
,the accuracy of their paycheck
and its timely delivery on payday.
The American Payroll
Association, the nation s leader in
payroll training, suggests several
tactics you might want to consider,
'to b6ost the power of your
paycheck. They include adjusting
your withholding. participating in
voluntary savings programs and
.retirement plans, taking advan-
'tage of flexible spending accounts.
and considering charitable and
other voluntary withholding
options.
Effectively managing your
paycheck, and withholdming can
contribute to a healthy financial
future.
Pad Your Own Pocket
Instead of Uncle Sam's. Y6u miay
be withholding' too.: much for
taxes. Income tax withholding is
something you want to 'get as
close as possible to what you will
actually owe. Why? If you have too
little taken out, you II owe money
when'you file your return-no one
likes to write out a big check to
Uncle Sam. If too 'much. is,
withheld, you'll get a refund.,
That's not good either.
What's wrTong with getting a


refund?
What's wrong is that you've
given Uncle Sam free use of your
money during, the year when that
money could be working for you.
The point is for you to get the use,
arid enjoyment of more of your
money when you earn' it,' whether
in increased purchasing power :or
investments, rather than making
an unintentional interest-free
loan to the government. A change '
in mantal status or the number of
'oyour children may also warrant
adjusting your withholding. .
Flex Your Money Muscle.
Thousands of companies offer
employees the opportunity to,
participate in a voluntary benefit
program known .as a flexiblee
spending account." It allows
employees the option of using pre-


tax payroll deductions for medical
and childe/dependent care
expenses. When you participate in
an FSA via payroll withholding,
you reduce the amount of wages
subject to federal income, Social
Security, and Medicare taxes,
thus increasing your take-home
pay.
Your Nest Egg-Laying the
Groundwork. You can cut your
taxes artd save for retirement all
at once. That's what a 401(k) plan
can do for you. Before you get the
chance to, spend your whole
paycheck, contributions have
already been taken out.. It is a tax-
deferred retirement plan and it is
an easy and automatic way .to
save for retirement.
Our paychecks are "a powerful
planning tool in charting our
financial future,. We owe it to
.ourselves to make the best use of
our hard-earned money, through
payroll withholding options. It's
not, 'hard and your payroll
professional can' answer any
questions you have about your
paycheck and withholding.
