ANRR Sale


Finalized
The sale of Apalachicola
Northern Railroad (ANRR) to AN.
Railway was finalized last week. In
a press release from the St. Joe_
Company it was announced that
the company has completed the
sale of the rolling stock of ANRR to
AN Railway, subsidiary of Rail
Management Corporation, head-
quartered in Panama City.
It was. also noted that a lease
Sof ANRR's track and related facili-
ties to'AN Railway was executed.
St. Joe will retain ownership of
the right-of-way, track, related
facilities and real estate as part of'
the lease, purchase agreement
between it and AN Railway. .
During a phone interview with
AN Rail'ay owner Earl Durden
Monday. he said the railroad is
currently operating under the new
management.
"We already have one new
industrial (rail customer) prospect
and are hoping to have another
one within a couple of weeks."
Durden said.
1He reiterated a quote he made
a few weeks ago when this pur-
chase agreement was announced-
-"We have to make the railroad
grow in order to sustain it and we
didn't get into this to watch it fall."
The down side to this transac-
tion has been 'a reduction in the
number of jobs at the railroad.
ANRR was employing 16 workers
pnor to the sale.
Durden said AN Railway cur-
rently employs SLX people from the
former staff.
St. Joe Company officials had
not hidden the fact that they were
losing a considerable amount of
money-approximately S2 million
per year-operating the railroad.
One of the major reasons listed for
their sale of the company was to
put management of the railroad
into the hands of railroad man-
agers.
The ten former ANRR workers
will receive a severance package
from the St., Joe Company propor-
tionate to 'their years of service.
Those pay packages range from
two months to over a year of
salary.
According to Jerry Ray. exec-
utive vice president of coimmuni-
cations. the company's goal was
to be fair and'respectful to work-
ers- for their years of service to
ANRR.
/ Durden said, "There is some
potential for jobs at one of, the
company's other railroads.
"As we add business we'll"
have to add jobs," he stressed,
reiaterating a commitment to eco-
nomic development in -Gulf
County,
Durden expects ,the company
to do no better than break even or
even possibly lose a little money
during the short term. Both he

Maybe those folks from South
Florida should mosey on'up here
for a lesson in how to run elec-
tions. .
Despite, new machines and
ballots, things ran. smoothly on
primary day in Gulf County.
The only real serious hiccup
was the extra two hours poll'
workers had to labor as>poll hours'
were extended after, problems in,
Dade and Broward counties com-
'pelled the governor to order,
longer hours with the entire coun-
try watching Florida's first elec-
Lion' since 2000..
Gulf County could' not, have
performed better. .
An impressive 56 percent of.
registered voters, some 4.971.
cast ballots, a stout number for a
primary.
And any kinks with the new
machines were few and far
-between.
There were a couple of
jammed scanning machines duir-2'
ing the day, both of which were
up and running again in minutes,
and some isolatedd issues closing
out the ,computer-dri'ven
machines at the end of the day.
but nothing to produce much of a
sweat.
-1 thought we did great." said
Supervsor of Elections Linda
Griffin. "I really want to brag on
my poll workers. They did a great
job."
Further, deep into the night,
long after some races had been
dedecIidd;"Tii`tffe'and losers,-and
their supporters. were still gath-
ered together at the County Cour-
thouse.
"I think that shows the class
of many of the people in Gulf
County." said John Reeves.
The results reflected a simple
fact of politics: incumbency caii
be a mighty tool.
County Judge Fred Witten.
County' Commissioners Billy


Traylor and Nathan Peters.Jr. and
School Board member Oscar
Redd all won Tuesday night.
All but Traylor, 'who-must face
Democrat Tommy: Montford for
the District 2 seat in November.
were re-elected to their current
offices.
Mayor Ray Dickens and
Group 3 commissioner Tony Jus-
tice also won re-election in the
Wewahitchka city election.
George Cox and Sharon
Gaskin earned the right' to face
each other in a November runoff.
for ;the' District 2 seat on the
county School Board.
Witten who was facing his
first election after being appointed
County Judge two years ago by
Gov. Jeb Bush, was the biggest
winner of the night.
Capturing nearly 70 percent
of the vote, Witten turned aside
..the challenge of TimN McFarland.
garnering 3,420 to McFarland's
1,476;
"It's overwhelming," Witten
said. "I'm just awed by what the
people of Gulf County have done
ifor me. It's the most humbling
experience I've ever been through.
'"I appreciate all the- people
who' contributed to my campaign
in one way or another. I take the
people's vote as evidence they
approve of my performance as
judge over the past two years, as
well as my contributions to the
community over the past 33
years.
T.rfMylor and Redd both beat
back tough challenges. ---
Traylor. at times a lightning
rod on the County Comrnrmssion.
beat Tom Semrnmes in the District
2 Republican primary by 273 to
230. or 54 percent to 46 percent.
He was already looking for-
ward to.his rematch with Mont-
ford, who narrowly missed
unseating him four years ago.
"It was a good election," Tray-
lor said. "I knew it was going to be


Sa tough election. Nothing is going
to be a runaway anymore when it
comes to Commission races.,
'I appreciate all the good peo-
ple coming out and I look forward
to November."
Redd,. a School Board mem-
ber for- 20 years making him the
Slongest-serving elected official in
the county, slipped past Danny
Little :for the District 1 seat.
Redd received 522, or 54 per-.
cent, of the votes while Little
picked up 437, or 46 percent.
i'Tm just pleased with the out-
come." Redd said. Tm honored to
have the opportunity to serve
another four years.
'This will probably be my last
bid for public office. I appreciate
the trust people have placed in
my and I'll work hard to live up to
, it."
Peters overcame three chal-
lengers to re-claim the County
Cominission District 4 race.
Given that all four candidates
were Democrats, this was a uni-
versal primary, meaning the win-
ner took the seat without a runoff.

St. Joe Company is holding a
ribbon cutting next Tuesday,
Sept. 17, for its new Commerce
Park located just off Industrial
Road in Port St. Joe.
This ribbon cutting is going to
be especially significant since the
company already has its first ten-
ant, Red Line Equipment
Company, ready to locate at the
new Commerce Park.
Red Line specializes in leasing
portable storage container units.
These storage units will be refur-
bished at the local plant according
to Alan McNair, Interim Director
of the Gulf County Economic


Development Council. The busi-
ness is proposing to hire at least
10 full time employees at an aver-
age wage of $21,000 per year, and
make minimum taxable improve-
ments on the six-acre site of at
least $250,000.
Gulf County commissioners
got the ball rolling to approve tax
abatement during their Monday
meeting.
Red Line Equipment
Company is headquartered in
Pensacola. It has been in opera-
tion for 35 years under the owner-
ship of Mr. and Mrs. C.W.
Thompson.


As the school year progresses,
so do the enrollment numbers for
Gulf County. Schools.
The district School Board
learned last week that enrollment
numbers are stronger than initial
indications when school began
last month, and far above the.,
gloomy estimates of the summer.
As of last Thursday, .enroll- '
ment 'in the district, subtracting
the Adult School and pre-K stu-
dents. Was. 2,119, above last,
year's projection of 2,100, on,
which state funding was based.
That funding is. adjusted'sev' .
eral .times during the year
depending on actual bodies in
seats.
During the summer district
officials expressed concern that
enrollment could fall 20-30 stu-
dents, short of 2,100.
Broken down by school,
enrollment is 505 at Port St. Joe
Elementary, 407 at Port St. Joe
High School, 322 at'Port St. Joe
Middle School, 520 at Wewahitch-
ka' 'Elementary, 249 at
"Wewahitchk-a High School and
176 at the newly-created
Wewahitchka Middle School.
Looking at broad trends,
enrollment 'is on the upswing in
Port St. Joe schools while it is
slipping at schools in the north
1 end of the county..
In part that is reflected in
class sizes.
At the Wewaliiftchka schools,
according to information provided'
by the schools, there are just a
few classes with 30 or more stu-
dents with several more near that
mai-k.
Meanwhile, at Port St. Joe
Middle and High schools alone,
there are roughly two dozen class-
es with 30 or more students and
another dozen or so pushing that
benchmark.
That disparity between north
and south ends of the county is
also an indication that a newly
implemented student/teacher


ratio. which resulted in the elimi-
nation of some half dozen or so
teaching positions and a similar
number of aide slots, might be in,
need of some tweaking.
A continuing trend is the
matriculation of Franklin County'
students to district schools.
The board' approved several
transfers last week, bringing to 28
the number of Franklin County
students attending district
schools.
A combination of poor per-
forming schools and the estab-
lishment of a charter school are
largely to blame for the rush of
.students out of Franklin C6unty,
said Gulf County Superintendent
for Schools Jerry Kelley.
-Still ie 'is hoping that the end
of the flight of students out of
Franklin County will halt.-
"Hopefully this will stop," Kel-
ley said. "I don't want us to be
part of the problem for them."
In other business during last,
Thursday's regular monthly meet-
ing, the board:
With no public comment
and little discussion, the Gulf
County School Board unanimous-
ly approved its budget for the:
2002-2003 fiscal year.
Though the budget translates
to a tax increase of just over 9
percent, 'the district actually
dropped its village rate by about
Half a mill.
Received the district trans-
portation report for the 2001-
2002 ,school year.
Last year, district buses cov-
ered 280,475 miles roughly the
equivalent of circling the Earth at
the .equator 10 times at a cost of
$614,559.26, or about $2.19 per
mile, including salaries and bene-
fits.
"We're very comparable with
other districts around the state,"
said Don Rich, coordinator of
transportation. "We aren't the
best, but we're right there. We're
pretty efficient."
'* Approved a contract with


'the Gulf County Sheriff's Office to
provide School Resource Officers
at the Port St. Joe' High/Middle
School complex and Wewahitchka
High School. ,
Each SRO will be paid
$35,600'on a 12-month contract.

Comnimission


Talks Budget


& Other Bus.
,Concerned taxpayers and
Gulf County commissioners held
a one-hour special' work session
prior to the board's regular meet-
ing Monday afternoon.
This regular meeting was
being held on an irregular day
(Monday) because of elections
being held Tuesday, the board's
normal meeting day.
'The meeting room was packed
with folks who wanted to express
themselves concerning the budget
as' well as members of several
local entitles and groups that
might, be impacted by a budget
change.
For. the most part, when' the
meeting was over the board had
made no significant alterations to
the budget proposed during the
first budget public hearing the
previous Tuesday, when village
rates were announced at 6.5750.
This is a 13.68% tax increase
because of an increase of $153
million in taxable values on this
year's tax rolls.
The board received three
basic proposals for cuts to the
budget.
First, Charlie Weston, Cape
resident, presented 40 items iden-
tified by their significant increase
over last year's numbers.

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY Hunker Down W ith Kes by Kesley Colbert
' .C OL UMNN


We


Remember



It's hard to imagine that a year has passed since' the events of
9-11. I remember well the feeling deep down in the pit of my stom-
ach when I was told ai plane, had flown into the World Trade
Center.. ,
My first-thoughts were--ltow could this happen? It never even
crossed my mind that someone could have intentionally flown
into the giant skyscraper.
At 8:46 a.m. on 9/11 American Flight 11 crashed into the
north tower of the World Trade tenter. A short time after that
Americans began to realize this was not an accident and, in fact.
.wewere under attack.
At 9:03 a.m. United Flight 175 hit the south tower of the World
Trade Center and this already shocked coflntr was beginning to
realize the depth of terror being levied against us.
At 9:43 a.m. American Flight" 77 crashed into the Pentagon
and we Americans were now aware this was a new kind of war.
one the likes of which we had never seen, where innocent civilians
were-the unexpected and unarmed victims of suicide attacks.
Shortly before 10:00 a.m., cell phone conversations with pas-
sengers aboard United Flight 93 laid groundwork for a struggle
between passengers and hijackers that resulted in the crash of
flight 93 far short of its destination, which is assumed to be
Washington, D.C.
Passengers aboard that flight sacrificed their lives in order to
thwart the plans of terrorists, and Todd Beamer's words "Let's
Roll" took their place in the scrawls of famous inspirational say-
ings.
S The images that are forever etched in my mind. though, are
those of the two towers collapsing like a house of cards-the
south tower at 10:05 a.m. and the north tower 24 minutes later
.at 10:;29.
Since this time a lot has taken place. Our country has
declared war on these and other terrorists. The people of this
country are having to face some tough questions as they' evaluate
their.comrrfort level. In the past we've been free as a lark to come,
go, stay, visit. fly. drive, or walk just about anywhere we wanted,
any time we wanted.
Things have changed. Several months ago my son. Bill, and
his family were flying out West to visit his wife. Lisa's, mother and
father. Bill was standing there holding my grandson Will and he
was picked to be searched. Well, that was OK with Bill. but Will
had a hard time understanding exactly what they were doing to
his daddy. While they were trying to search Bill, Will was hanging
onto his leg thinking all kinds of bad thoughts about those peo-
ple.
.To make matters even worse, they took Will's # 1 favorite little
toy bowhunting game away from him and it's never been seen
again.
It is a shame what those terrorists have done to our country.
As I write this editorial on Monday prior to Wednesday's 9/ 11/02,
it's still hard to fathom that 3,010 people were killed during those
few hours of terror. 2,639 at the World Trade Center, 125 at the
Pentagon. 87 passengers aboard Flight 11, 60 aboard Flight 175,
S59 on Flight 77, 40 victims aboard Flight 93 and 19 hijackers on
the four planes.
"A World Changed" was the headline on the front page of a
.Tallahassee-Democrat special commemorative edition in Sunday's
paper. -Ultimately the real challenge in this war on terrorism will
be to make those changes--changes to the good as we remember
: 'those who died that day.


I remember someone saying.
about a month" or so after, 9-11,
what a wonderful feeling-prevailed
in our country right now but that
it couldn't last. They allowed that
in a few months things would "get ,
back to normal." .
I shrugged my shoulders 'and,
because I hadn't' given it any
'thought, politely about half agreed
with4 them. As Americans we tend
to "get over and get on with it"
whether we re talking about a

mass flooding along the
lMississippi River or the tumbling
dollar on the world market.
I personally enjoyed the new
emFpLasis on our national pnde. I
warmed from the inside out when I
watched thousands of Americans
standing in major league baseball
stadiums, at NASCAR races, at
.professional and college football
games-anywhere a: crowd would
gather-chanting ULISA, USA.
USA.... i
I' found myself standing in my
living robm, and singing along with
my fellow Arnericans to the pre-
game National Anthem. I actually
listened to the woords for the first
time in years! I fought back a tear.


I thought about Francis Scott Key.
And Nathan Hale. And Jim Bowie.
Da\y Crockett. Colonel Travis and
the 186 brave souls who stood
shoulder to shoulder to defend the
Alamo.
I remembered an old Nay' guy
who, when it looked like the ship
was lost, squaring his shoulders
and shouting back at the enemy, "I
have not yet begun to fight!"
I saw -so clearly once again
that old Life Maaazine cover of the
World War II soldier lying face
down in the sand on some far-
awa forgottenrisland in the South
Pacific.
I thought of my little brother.
And his year in Viet Nam. Arid his
home-coning. The first thing he
said to me was, ."K.C.. they've got.

I thought of the thousands
who filed into work at the World
Trade Center on September 11,
2001. How unsuspecting! How
innocent I thought of the' ones
who died there. How senseless!
I thought of those brave fire-
men and policemen who rushed
into 'those blazing infernos to lend
a hand., Just regular Americans
doing their jobs. I was thankful for
all those they led'to safety. But my
mind lingers on the 23 policemen
and the' 343 firemen who didn't
make it back out. I read some-

Fighting the wood yard fire athe pp.er .mil was a 24 hour affair
:the woHistory Channelpaseveral days


LAST WEEK'S PAPER fea-
,tured .a story about the old mill
whistle and it's history. It had a-
long and interesting one and was
much traveled. ,
This" week,. I'd like to talk.
about the big fire the mill experi-
enced back in the '60s. It was a
fine one and a long one., '

It involved the wood yard.
-It also drew the attention of
every fire fighting apparatus for a
radius of 30 miles. Every fire
truck in.. three counties was on
the job before the fire was finally
put out.
I had just received delivery of
'a new Ludlow typesetting
machine and it was being. mus-
cled through the back door when
the fire siren went off, I ,was on
the volunteer fire department at
the time, so I had to answer the
call and leave the delivery of my
new machine to the freight truck
driver, much to his chagrin.
The machine. wasn't very


large, but like all other lead cast-
ing machines of the day, it was
heavy!

WHEN I FOUND out what the -.-
fire was, I wished I, had stayed
with my machine. -.
The wood yard was on fire.
It was about 2:00 p.m. when
the alarm was sounded, and it'
was about 2:00. p.m. the- next
afternoon, before it was finally
out.
We "arrived at the wood yard
to find the smoke billowing from
it for its' entire length.
No flames; just smoke!
We had' a 1949 Dodge fire
truck at the time, plus an old


1939 Ford we had just installed a
new pump in. We drove that old
Dodge into the middle of the wood
yard' aid started,'pumping water. r
It stood in that same posi-
tion, pumping at full speed for 24
hours.
he old Ford was parked in
another position; Wewa's then-
new fire.truck arrived before very.
long, as'did Apalachicola's, the.'
Beaches', White City.s and
Highland View's. Highland View
had just received a second-hand
LaFrance from Pittsburgh that
was the prettiest fire truck you
ever saw. It had a straight-12
engine and sounded like a rail-
road locomotive. It took a com-


mite ofmn us'ttn gao


mittee of men busy toting gaso-
line to keep it running u. until
the steady 'grind of pumping
cracked the cylinder head and it
had to be shut down!
A RESTAURANT IN town
made sandwiches all night long,,
to feed the fire fighters, and the
mill never did shut down.
The restaurant was,operated'
by "Honey" Allen, the mother of
the man who was head of the mill
i when it finally shut down, for
good, Ferrel Allen.
The mill furnished a gang of
men whose only job was to keep
gasoline in all, the fire trucks and:
keep them operating.
It. was the only time' Port St.
"Joe's volunteer 'fire department
was called on for round-the-clock
duty.
It was some job!
There were all 'those depart-
'ments, mentioned, Tyndall Air
Force Base and the regular fire
department inside the mill,
putting water on the wood pile all


night long!

THE PAPER MILL only took'
short logs for wood in 'those days.
The wood pile stretched from the
highway to the barking drums,
directly in front of the mill. It was
about 20 feet tall.. That was a lot
of wood
The fire was the talk of this
town and other 'towns in the
vicinity for weeks after it was
over.
It was the fire which prompt-,
ed the modernization of the fire
department and prompted the
County Commission. to adopt a
program of equipping every little
community with a fire
truck-even before they had any
water systems to operate from.
The city has kept an almost.
new fire truck with increased
pumping capacity, ever since.
That fire was a severe test of
the volunteer department-and
their lack of equipment.

I SAW A PROGRAM on the,


-History Channel, several days
ago, about the explosion and fire
which destroyed the chemical
plants and city of Texas City,
Texas.
This reminded me of our big
fire on the wood yard, which
could have destroyed our paper
mill. '
That huge fire caused Texas
City to make improvements to
their fire fighting apparatus, just
like a big fire nudged the City of
Port St. Joe. Those. things are
never thought of until one needs
them, then it's too.late to do any-
thing,about it.
The old Dodge carried only
3000 gallons of water with it and
was thetarget of improvement in
the very next pumper the city
purchased. You are' probably not
interested in such, matters, but
the city has never bought a
pumper, since then, with a
capacity of less than 1,000 gal-
lons of water.
That's a lot of protection,
when your house catches fire.

District / Teachers Hit A Bump In the Road in Negotiations


by Tim Croft
After circling for several hours
Friday night, the teachers' union
and representatives for the dis-
trict failed to find common ground
on which to land.
While declaring an impasse
seemed a mere formality, the two
sides will talk by phone this week
to determine if further talks
would be fruitful.
If not, the next step, whether
to a mediator, special master or
, the School Board itself, remains
unclear.
But what was clear Friday
night, given the barbed comments
and veiled threats emanating
from either side of the table, is
that on the issue of salaries the


sides are digging in their heels.
For the district, consultant
Jerry Copeland made what he
called a "best offer" of a 2 percent
pay raise above the 1.8 percent
step, or incremental, increase
most teachers automatically
received in July, plus an addition-
al $25 per month toward health
insurance premiujms.
The teachers' stance was
encapsulated in a petition, drawn
up and circulated without the
knowledge of union, leadership,
insisting on a 4 percent increase
above the step, or roll-up.
Ninety-six teachers, or 70-75
percent of the rank-and-file,
signed the petition. -
"We are at 4 percent and


You are a child of the
universe, no less than
the trees and stars; you
have a right to be here.
And whether or not it
is clear to you, no
doubt the universe is
unfolding as it should.

that's where we are at," said Tom
Wazlavek, executive director of
the Gulf County Education Asso-
ciation. "I can't sell 2 percent to
(the teachers)."
Copeland said the board had
"stretched as far as they can go"
in coming up with its latest pro-
posal and pointed out, that with
the roll-tip, 2 percent bump in
salaries and additional $25
toward health premiums, the dis-
trict was very close to "4 percent
money" requested by the teach-
ers.
'The board doesn't have 4
percent money," Copeland said.
"I've spent every penny I have,
"(The board) is giving as much as
they reasonably can. .
"Would I like to put more on
the table, absolutely. With the
money available, this is all the
district could put on the table."
That statement landed like a
lead weight on the teachers' side-
of the table.
Wazlavek pointed out that'
nearly one-third of teachers, gen-,
erally those on the high end of the
salary scale, receive no step

increase, so without additional
money above the rollup those
teachers will go without a raise for
the second straight year.
Last year, after going through
a mediator, the teachers received
just the step increase.
Wazlavek noted that the car-
ryover from the last fiscal year to
this one, the reserve or "rainy day
fund," was projected at $800,000
a year ago but was over $2 million
when the fiscal year closed.
/And he added that the salary
scale for the district was some
$400,000-$500,000 less than a
year .ago, due in part because
there are fewer teachers.
Further, it was noted by one
teacher that the board had this
year lowered the district's discre-
tionary millage rate, used in part
for employee salaries and bene-
fits, while holding down teacher
salaries. ,
He added that the district had
one of the lowest, millage rates in
the state.
"When we look, over. these
numbers we don't come to the
same conclusions," Wazlavek
said.
Copeland' and district repre-


sentatives have maintained that
the district spent more than it
received last year and that a vari-
ety of factors declining enroll-
ment, the closing of the paper mill
- have created tough economic
times the past several years.
Copeland contended that in
coming years, as development
occurs and enrollment climbs, the
board would be in a better posi-
tion to provide raises and better
benefits to. its employees.
"We didn't get to where we are
in one school year," Copeland
said. "We aren't going to get to
where we need to be in one school
year.
"We are going to get there by
working with whoever wants to
work with us in getting there."
The teachers remained
unmoved, noting that enrollment
was already above projections
;from last year.
"What is the vision of the.
board for the district in the next
few years?" wondered GCEA pres-
ident Judy' Campbell. "We have
salaries that are stagnating and
salaries that are behind the state
.average.
,"We are at the bottom of the


barrel and we have A and B
schools now. Are they thinking we
will keep salaries down and when
the boom comes shoot those
salaries up?"
Then, noting. the number of
teachers that have left the district
for other counties and states in
the past year or so Wewahitch-
ka High School lost one-third of
its teachers to other districts' or
states Campbell added, Do
they not see we need to keep .our
district well-supplied with teach'-
ers?"
Shortly thereafter talks broke
off for the night, with Copeland
and Wazlavek trading pointed
comments.
Copeland said-as he put forth
his "best offer" that the proposal
was part of a package the district
had put together ip order to reach
agreement.with tOe teachers that
night..
If the teachers rejected the
proposal, they were tossing aside
the entire package and "we are
back to where we are."
Wazlavek countered that ,if
Copeland withdrew that proposal

where that a Chaplain was the
first casualty.
And I've heard people ask
where w%'as God that morning!
'I saw Him in the smoke dark-.
ened faces of so.many at ground
zero. I saw H-im in the genuine and
unabashed tears of a concerned
nation. I felt Him in the ,soul of a
people who were awakened out of
a '.bit of a slumber. I saw His
breadth and depth 'as Americans
from the distant corners, of our
U. united States accepted this
tragedy as an attack against a
next door. neighbor. We are--
despite our different backgrounds,


our selfish attitudes, our vast
divergent views on near 'bout any
subject-family!
That's a fact the Osama bin
Laden's of the world can't compre-
hend.
We don't have "a, bunch of
troops" deployed around the world
fighting terronsm on our behalf,
we have 'our friends and neigh-'
Sbors--the best %e have to offer-in
uniform ready to pay the supreme
price for our safety!
And that's a fact the Osama
bin Laden's of the world are begin-
ning to understand!
On second thought and after a
year to reflect..... we're not going to
forget 9-11. We are not ever going
to forget .
I'm reminded every day as I
ride down. the road. A pick-up
Struck will pass with an American
flag magneted to the tailgate. I'll
meet a car with a flag decal posted
prominently in the windshield. I
tune in to see a ball game'; and
every player, umpire, referee,
groundskeeper. scoreboard opera-
tor and anyone else remotely con-
nected to-the game has the red,-
white and blue proudly'sewn onto
their uniforms. I nod to them all. I
thank them silently. I praise God
for his grace in allowing me to be
an American.


My favorite part of any sport-
ing event now ,is the military fly-
over!
I appreciate things just a little
more. I was pleased and proud -of
"us" when we quickly straightened
out the judge in California who
misunderstood the term '-'under
God" in our pledge. I like In God
We Trust on every coin. I pray in'
Jesus' name. .
I think often of the heroes .who
'.were left behind in the tragedy.,
The mother who in a heartbeat
found herself a single parent. A
father wh6 lost his oldest son. The
brother who couldn't protect his
little sister.....
This nation is stronger than it
was a year ago.. Our petty differ-
ences don't seem to be as great.
We're not as mad if you don't "see
it" exactly like we do. Life is more
important than that!
Much more important!
And we are more steeled and
prepared than ever for whatever
the deranged and irrational (if we
can't have it we, will ,,destroy it)
cretins want to throw at us.
We are not' going to forget the
events of 9-11. Ever! As a matter of
fact it will soon be a national holi-
day-if it's not already!
Respectfully,
Kesley


This is where Norm would be if he didn't live in Boston!

surprise since the city board is

the loss of appraised values

tion in values of the mill property.

results in a 17.84% decrease in

ally receive a formal proposal for

Beach. noted in the letter that the
company wished to respond if the
city received any proposals. The
letter went on to request negotia-
tion to purchase the property in
the event no proposals were
received.
A recent appraisal of the
property placed the value of out-
parcels at just under 82 million
dollars. City commissioners
agreed to meet with St. Joe
Company and negotiate on the
property based on its appraised
value.


School Board

land adjacent to the Port St. Joe
High School track to the City of
Port St. Joe for use as a soccer

"I'm comfortable with (the
contract)." said board attorney
Charles Costin. who has been
working with the city attorney on
the contract for a couple of
months.
Approved three separate
change orders to the contract for
re-roofing Port St. Joe High
School. bumping the cost from

week.
"We are actually going to get
started," said Superintendent of
Schools Jerry Kelley. "This' is -
going to be nightmare ... but' it
will be well worth it."

Weston asked the board to.
consider and review .those line
items for possible reduction. He'
asked commissioners to reduce
the budget by 1 /2 mill or approx-
imately S500.000.
Weston further requested that
a citizens' advisory board be
established that would work with
commissioners on the budget and
budget issues.
The next proposal came from
Gary Ross. He 'listed a total of
81.3 million in cuts that could be
considered in an effort to reach a
1/2 mill reduction.
Ross signed off on his pro-
posal as Gary Ross. Chairman of
the Gulf County Republican
Party. This raised concerns from
Commissioner Billy Traylor who
took exception to many of the
items requested for cuts and the
Republican Party being tied to the
document.
During ensuing conversa-
tions. Traylor said one place the

y final offer of a 1.2 percent pay

would pursue an unfair labor
pracuces complaint against the
district.
Pnor to the discussion on the
distinct's latest salary proposal.
the talks centered on peripheral
issues.
The union's proposal to move
to the state plan, Copeland said.
was worth examining, maybe by a
committee.
But Wazlavek noted that the
district's insurance committee
looked at the issue last year and
determined the state plan to be
the most attractive option due to
its benefits package and
deductibles that were more favor-
able than those under the dis-
trict's current Blue Cross/Blue
Shield plan without a significant
difference in monthly premiums.
'The groundwork was laid
last year for going to the state
plan this year,". Wazlavek said.,
Issues such as compensatory
time. retirement pay and supple-
ments were also discussed with a
broad conceptual framework for
agreement established.
All of which was largely moot
once-Copeland put his salary offer
on the table, an offer that was
clearly unpalatable to the teach-
ers.
If indeed an impasse is
declared the sides have several
opbons.
They can take the case to a
mediator. as was done each of the

John Reeves of Port St. Joe has had a truly deep appre-
ciation for "real" furniture for the past 20 years. His pas-.
sion may not be understood if you don't know the differ- .
ence between real wood furniture and the
particle board pieces some stores now
sell
Bringing older furniture back to
life is a fine art that John '
learned back in 1982 when he
first began professionally
stripping and refinishing it.
He learned which stains and
lacquer finishes worked
.,most effectively on various
types of woods, and what
colors would eventually
evolve. He experienced the joy
that his customers felt as their
coveted family heirloom was refur-
bished with a "facelift." '-
Reeves has been open since November
2000 at 234 Reid Avenue in downtown Port St. Joe. The
new store is primarily a furniture store featuring "unfin-


ished" furniture made of real wood in its natural state. All
of the natural wood colors and patterns are beautiful lo
behold. Many customers prefer this "naturalness." Some
choose only to lacquer their selection, or have'it
done by a professional like John. ,
Furniture is a major investment for
many people, lasting a lifetime, and
it isn't always easy'o find a previ-
ously stained pi e that blends
well ,into your existing decor:
Many choose Reeves unfin-
ished.furniture and provide an
example of the desired wodd
color, and have him use his
expertise to create a match.
Reeves Furniture & Refinishing
Shoppe offers everything from
ables and chairs to beds and book-
shelves. Check out his website at
www.reevesfurniture. "com to glimpse at
some of the furniture items offered.

The board agreed to tvwo
land use change ordinances, one
for 15 acres and one for 10 acres.
These amendments to : the
county's comprehensive plan will
change zoning in these areas from
agricultural to mixed commercial
and low-density residential.
Failed to pass a morion to
refund money to Patrick Stomp
for partial water tap fees. Stomp
has been at odds with the county
over this fee because when he
purchased his property from the
former owner there was no lien
listed for the tap fees. Stomp paid
the county for a tap fee and when
it was later discovered that a tap
was in place on the property-but
only partially paid for by the for-
mer property owner-he was reim-
bursed S892.77 of his S1450.51
fee. Stomp feels The is due the
remainder of the fee he paid. This
is the second time the board has
refused this request.
Decided to hold off paying

Container and the county until

ation can be clarified.

by Tim Croft
To gauge the rising price of
property in Mexico Beach consid-
er the city's pending sale of land
along U.S. 98.'
During its regular monthly
meeting Monday night, the City*
Council approved moving ahead
with negotiations with a buyer for
what is known as the Duren Prop-
erty, located at 3704 U.S. 98.-
Bids were opened early Mon-
day arid the high bidder, one of
only two bidders on the property.
was Fuller Property Services Inc.
out of Marianna.
Charles Fuller bid, $650,000
for the 'property, approximately
200-feet-by- 134-feet.
; The bid was $25,000 above'
the appraised value and nearly
S200,000 more than the city paid
for the land some three yeafs ago.
Currently, the city's EMS
building sits on the property,
Which has primarily served as an
overflow parking lot for the trucks
and boat trailers of users of the
city boat ramp.
Fuller's conceptual site plan
for the property includes a multi-
story building themed, as he'
wrote, as a "quaint Key AWest-'
style" mix, of residential and com-
mercial space.
As proposed the development, ,
,tentatuvelv labeled Mexico Beach'
Villas, would be comprised of,
some 14 residential units of vary-
ing size, vith four commercial
: spacesiranging from 980 square
1; feeg to 1,400 square feet.,
A pool. boat slips and breeze-
way .are also included in Fuller's
conceptual site plan. :
.It answers what we asked for,
-and is monetarily sound,"' said
SCouncilwoman Carolyn Metcalf.,
In its advertisement, seeking
bids fot the property, which, is ,
I zoned General Commercial, the
city sought assurances' that any
development would includee at
least 30 percent commercial
space. '' e
C Councilman Chuck Risinger
urged the council to seek a strict-
ly commercial, development, say-
ing that a simmering controversy,
over multi-family residentialf
development on the west end of
the cit.'m would be only exacerbat-,,
| ed by allowing more resideial.
building in the area.
In particular, Risinger
expressed concern about parking
space. more of which is "gobbled".'
up b% residential development.
,I .vould 'hope we would look.
stronger at selling this to be com-.
mercial," Risinger said.
; The other bidder on the prop-
erty. Plantation Builders Inc..
proposed constructing a large.
restaurant initially; with a smaller
retail/fast food development com-
ing later: .
Plantations bid was
-600.000.
The Fuller bid. however, was '
approved unanimously and, staff
directed to*, begin negotiations,
with closing within 60 days.
"It met the minimum cnteria
and exceeds the appraised 'Value
of the property," Mayor Kathy.
Kingsland noted.
Although the council had
been urged by one resident during
its July meeting to hold off selling
the property, the only city-owned
property on U.S. 98 until after the
ongoing visioning process was
complete. couricilmember's
appeared eager to unload what
was essentially a parking lot for
the busy tourist ,season.
The city had paid. in the
,neighborhood of 6500,000,. toss-
ing in maintenance on top' of the
purchase price, over the past
three years for, as Councilman
David Thompson put it, "housing
boats."
The city does have a two-year -
commitment from Arvida to use a
,, three-acre parcel north of U.S. 98
across from Marquardt's 'Marina


for truck and trailer parking,
The city will have to firm up
the dirt road leading to the land
and carve out a parking lot.
In other business Monday
night, the council:
Heard. from a respresenta-
tive of Preble Rish regarding ongo-
ing paving projects.
Heavy construction will begin
Monday in the business center,
with the work, the most intensive
for the business center portion of,
the, city, likely to last most of the
week, provided the weather coop-
erates.
Preble. Rish should also'
receive the survey for the Pier
Park improvement project next.
week and the engineering firm will
then move ahead with design and,
permit application work.
Engineers have already com-,
pleted some preliminary design
work on the pier extension: pro-,
posed as part'of the project.
The project is being funded
through, a $100,000 state grant,
which includes a $25,000 match,
from the city, coming from a por-
tion of the city's utiliht tax.
Held a second public hear-.
ing concerning proposals for an-
ordinance ..' governing, density
restrictions in areas zoned tourist
commercial and general commer-,
cial. ,
'The only :problem was,
nobody from the public chose to
address the issue .
: he brewing controversy has
arisen while, 'as' Kingland
described it,.'"a surge" of residenr-.
tial building. i.e. townhomes and
similar multi-fanmily develop-
ments. has occurred on the west
end of the beach.
In two public heanngs on the
issue the council has heard from
exactly two individuals.
One expressed the opinion of
some neighboring homeowners.
who believe the multi-family
dwellings are depressing property,.
values and violate the intent of
the LDR and comp plan.
The other speaker argued
that property owners and devel-
opers had invested in the .land
based on the current LDR and
comp plan. which allows .such
development. ''
With so little input fromrthe.
public the, council had little
choice but to kick, the issue back
to the Planning arid Zoning Board .
for crafting .of an ordinance.
'Thompson urged there council
to hold a workshop with the Plan-
ning and Zoning Board in an
effort "-to come up with the sort of
plan that will .be equitable to
everyone. We really heed to sit
down and take a long, look at
this."

Sharks Drop


Opener 32-7


The Port St. Joe Sharks
kicked off their 2002 regular sea-
son Friday night with a 32-7 loss
to Hamilton County in Jasper.
The Sharks seemed jet lagged
from their nearly four hour bus
ride, and Hamilton County
quickly scored three touchdowns
in the first quarter to set the tone.
'"We got beat on both sides of
the ball all night," said head coach
John Palmer. '"We fumbled the ball
too much, and put ourselves in'
too many holes."
Port St. Joe was forced to
punt on its first possession of the
game, which resulted in a 69yard
punt return for a touchdown by
the Trojans. Hamilton County
missed its extra point try, but led
6-0 with 9.49 left in the first quar-
ter.
After another three and out
series by the, Sharks' offense, the
Trojans marched 70 yards in six
plays to take a 13-0 lead with 4:46
left in the quarter. On third and
27, Hamilton County completed a-


go route down the right side line
* for a 61 yard touchdown.
On the Trojans' next posses-
sion, they capped off a three play
51 yard 'drive with a 44 yard
touchdown run to take a 19-0
lead with 1:59 remaining in the
first quarter.
The Trojans .,extended their
lead to' 26-0 late in the second
quarter on a 39 yard touchdown
pass. Hamilton County had recov-
ered a Shark fumble on its own 49
yard line to set up the six play
drive. '
Hamilton County scored its
final touchdown of the night with
3:13 left in the third quarter on a
77 yard run to take a 32-0 lead.
The Sharks finally got on the
scoreboard midway through the'
fourth quarter on a six yard
touchdown run by sophomore
Jake Owens. Owens also had a 21
yard run during the Sharks' five-
play 45, yard drive. Stephen
Gaddis' extra point made 'the

butions to the Air Force mission.

Division, Operations Support
Branch, Tyndall AFB, received the
award during the annual ML,,
Awards luncheon at Wright-
Patterson AFB, -Ohio, where. the,
directorate is headquartered. She
received the award for her out-
standing performance during the
period of January 1, 2001 and
December 31, 2001.
Williams and her husband Bo
currently reside in Port St. Joe.
Although assigned to the
Operations Support Branch, sup-
porting 30 individuals, Williams
also provides service to 28 indi-
viduals in the Deployed Base
Systerns Branch, and: 50 individu-
,als in the, Force Protection

eral of the administrative funric-
tions, which includes, producing
temporary duty orders, 'veelily
activity reports, correspondence.
memorandums, technical reports,
and trip reports. increasing the


speed and accuracy of each of her
tasks.
In addition, she improved

ciency by redesigning the mail-
room to. increase work flow and
work space by 25 percent, and
ensured the future success of ML
by setting up office space for a
new $50 million contract. By com-
pleting orders, setting up brief-
ings, editing high quality letters
and supporting all the branches
in performing their tasks,
Williams has helped the organiza-
tion obtain over $10 million in
outside funding..

"Under William's careful
watch, nothing misses a beat,"
said Col. Don Huckle, chief of the
Airbase. Technologies Division.
"She strives for excellence in each
arid every task she undertakes.
She als6 goes out of her way to

nel were alerted to force protec-

Surimi-The Newest Trend In Convenience

Have you ever tried. surimi? in the U.S. Today, more than 170 : 2 w' .:. .n- .


Very likely youi have and just
didn't know it. Surimi may have
been used in the delicious seafood
salad you enjoyed at your favorite
restaurant this -week or in the,
sushi from the supermarket deli.
For some 900 years, surimi
has been a staple of the Asian
diet. The Japanese discovered
that if fresh fish were cleaned,
minced, washed and cooked, the
resulting product could be stored
.and eaten later.
Recognizing the convenience
of this age-old. pr6ven method of
preparing seafood, seafood
companies in America began
marketing crab-, lobster- and
scallop-flavored varieties of surimi


million' pounds of surimi, are
prepared in U.S. kitchens. making
it one of the fastest growing
seafood products in the world.
As 'consumers hunger for
more convenience products,
surimi makes sense as a mealtime
choice. Unlike highly perishable
fish -iand -shellfish, surimi
products can go from the
refrigerator to your table in no
time. '
Surimi is a' versatile
ingredient that works well with
today's ethnic flavor trends. From
-the-Latin appeal of lime juice and
jalapeno peppers to Asian-
inspired recipes with soy sauce

try and academia."
Williams supported the com-
mander's Affordability Training
Program, where over 40 individu-
als, including members of the Air
Armaments Center, received
training. She received compli-
ments from the students, instruc-
tor and commander's staff for her
extraordinary efforts while sup-
porting major tasks of the training
session. She also acted as the
coordinator for the US-Israeli
interchange with the Israeli Air
Force Civil Engineers. Her skills
resulted in a successful program,
future collaborations, and an
extension of the exchange officer
program.
With volunteerism that
extends beyond her career,
Williams also provided support to
the Society of American Military
Engineers, Panama. City Post, by
providing hospitality services to
over 30 scientists; 'engineers.
architects, officers. and civilians.


She was also the key worker at
the Veterans Administration
Health Fair at the Port St. Joe
Senior Citizen Center, which pro-
vided a full range of hospital, den-
tal, financial, and clothing
services to senior citizens, veter-
ans, ROTC cadets, and families.
S'Williams handles all of her
tasks professionally, with poise
and with self assuredness,"
Huckle said. "She is highly
deserving of this award."
The award is named for
Dorothy Shephard, a former exec-
utive secretary to ML's director,
who died in 1982. Shepard
worked in the directorate from
1964 until her premature death,
and was the recipient of a large
number of awards ,for her perfor-
mance., The award is presented
annually to an outstanding direc-,
torate secretary to recognize the
contributions made by secretaries
each. year in support of the Air
Force riission.

'Raising and educating gifted,
children can be an exciting yet
daunting challenge. Perceptions
of giftedness vary even among,
.educators. However, giftedness
generally includes a wide range of
attributes, from traditional intel-'
lectual measures to interpersonal
abilities. Giftedness can be found
,in children from all cultural., in-
guistic, and economic groups.
By definition, gifted children
give evidence of high performance
capability. in areas such as intel-
lect-ial. Teati ~, artislic:'.br lad-
ership capacity. or in specific
.acadermc fields.


Some early signs of giftedness
include abstract reasoning and
problem-solving skills: curiosity
and vivid imagination; sense of
humor;, extraordinary memory
and attention span; early and
extensive language development;
high activity level
Gifted children develop cogni-
tively at a much faster, rate than
that which is .considered normal
for their age. At the same time,
their physical and emotional
development may,.occur at an
average rate, posing some inter-
esting problems. Gifted children
typically tend to experience, all
aspects of life with greater inten-
sity, making them emotionally
Complex.
Gifted children generally ben-
efit by spending time in a class-
.room with children of similar
abilities. WES has implemented
an educational program that fos-
ters progress at the child's own
rate of development. At the heart'
of this program is Ms. Cameron
Totman.
The goal of the program is to
provide students a chance to
shine in the areas they feel most
- confident 'in and opportunities"to
develop talents in areas they feel a
need to improve. WES plans to

accomplish :this goal through
multi-disciplinary projects includ-
ing the Florida History Fair, Look-
Alikes art projects, creative,
writing workshops, and the
Florida Stock Market Simulation.
It is important for parents 'of
children with any special needs to
meet with teachers early in the
school year, work regularly with
teachers, and stay both involved
in their child's education and
informed about gifted education
in general. .
The key to raising gifted chil-
,dren is to respect their unique-
ness, their opinions .and ideas,
and their dreams. It can- be
painful for parents when their
children feel out of sync with oth-
* ers, but it is ,unwise to 'put too
much emphasis on the, impor-
tance -of fitting in: children get
enough' of that message in the
outside world. At home. children
need to know that they are appre-
ciated for being themselves.

Despite the rain at the Scallop
Festival, our spirits weren't
dampened. We had -excellent
parental involvement and a good
time visiting. We sold a number of
cookbooks, in addition to the
money made with the coke toss,
and handed out one hundred
Bibles and some tracts.
Students' came to school
showing their patriotism on
Wednesday, September 11. There
was also a special time of prayer
in memory of the loss of lives at
the Twin Towers tragedy last year.
We joined our country at 8:46
a.m. as directed by our President
on this Patriot Day.
Our Christmas card sales
program began this week. This is
our primary fundraiser of the
year. We asked you to get ready


for Christmas a little early. Expect
students to knock on your door
with a booklet showing the
available cards and gifts that you
can purchase. If you haven't been
approached, please call a student,
teacher or,our office at 229-6707.
We thank you for your parti-
cipation and help.
There are a few things we
want to bring to the attention of
parents., Please remember that
school 'starts at 8:05 each
morning. Teachers have respons-
ibilities with their children the,
first 15 minutes of the day, and
these must be accomplished
before the prescribed course work
can be taught. If you need to talk
,with the teacher in the morning,
please get to school before' the
beginning time so that the teacher
will be free by 8:05 to begin work


with .the class. If you need some
extra time with the teacher, make
an appointment for a later time
during the day.
Also, we would ask you to
please pick up your children at
the appropriate time each day.
MWe want to remind you that.
homework pads need to be
checked dAily to ensure your
child's success and confidence in
school, and parents must sign the
pads Monday through Thursday.
You may also use these pads to
communicate with your child's
homeroom teacher.
There will be a mission group
selected for each two-month
period during the school year. The
Baptist Children's Home has been
chosen for August and September.
Students learn of these groups in
*their homerooms and chapel
programs, and also bring offerings
for them. The next project will be
Samaritan's Purse. Gifts in
sh boxes will be sent to children
around the world. If, you would
like to participate in any way,

Friday night at Port St. Joe
High School's first football game
of the season, a group of commit-
ted cadets attended in uniform. A
few cadets respectfully raised the
flag as the Pledge of Allegiance
echoed throughout the stands. A
large portion of the students stood
as Honor Guard and saluted the
flag as'it rose and waved high,
towering over the field. Below the
crowd, some participated in Color
Guard proudly 'displaying the
flag's bold colors of red, white and
blue across the grass.
The unit is proud of its cadets
who are eager and willing to par-
ticipate in NJROTC services such
as showing patriotism at football
games. They volunteer themselves
freely out of the respect and
responsibility they hold for the
program. These cadets are the
focal point of the unit by shining
brightly with honor, courage and
commitment. We look forward to
.this Friday's football game and
future games throughout the new

acting out., Of all students, the
SNJROTC cadets have the highest
respect for the men and womern
killed in the attacks and .the sol-

How Safe is

Your Child's
Trek to School?
Now that kids are back' in
school, many are walking to
school or the bus stop, but do
parents and kids understand all
the safety dos and don't?
Although the school year has
already begun, it is never too late
to take the necessary precautions
to ensure your child's trip to and
from school is the safest it can be.
The National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA) is
urging parents to follow these life-
saving tips before your child's.
next trip to school.
Investigate your child's daily
route and path to school-
whether that means walking to
the bus stop or -all the way to
the driver. Also teach your !child
not to recover dropped objects
near the school bus until the
streets are safe and an adult can
supervise them.
Other motorists are legally
required to stop both ways on
undivided roadways when a
school bus is picking up or
dropping off riders.
Unfortunately, there is .no
guarantee that motorists, will
abide by these laws, which is why
it is vital to teach your child to
always be attentive to oncoming
traffic when gettipi. on or off the
school bus. ,.
The daily walk to school or
the bus stop can be a great
experience-if you. teach 'your
child to take all. of the necessary
safety measures.
Walking provides a form of
exercise, which is often lacking
from many children's. daily

supervise their children until they
are 10 or 11 years old.
'-Are sidewalks available or
does your child walk on the
street? Always encourage your
'child to take the sidewalk route,
but if that is not an option, teach
them to walk facing traffic to
Savoid potential danger.
Teach your' child to- look left,
right arid' then left again before
crossing the street. Also teach
your child ridt to walk between
parked cars or other vehicles.
SEnsure the, path is well
marked with traffic signals, signs
and crosswalks. Teach your child
the proper procedures for,
navigating crosswalks and
obeying traffic signals.,
T. Investgate whether crosswalks
are reflected and if traffic signals
allow enough time for children to
cross the street.
If your child begins their walk
to school in the dark. make sure
he or she is outfitted with the
proper gear. Make your child
easily visible with reflective
accessories on jackets. backpacks
and even shoes.
Is your child alone at the bus
stop. or is he or she surrounded
by other children? The less
isolated a child is. the less likely
he or she is to be approached by a
stranger. Teach your child to
always .be aware of their
surroundings and to avoid
strangers at all times.
Educate your child on the
procedures for getting on and off
the school bus safely. Passengers
should always walk in front of the
school bus and stay in the sight of

Set a wake-up time that gives
each child enough time to wash.
dress, eat,: do chores and get out
the door. then add 10 minutes for
schedule snags.
Put a clock in even' room.
Design a rotating schedule for
the bathroom. Put a timer m the
bathroom so children will know
when their time is up. (Teenagers
should get up fifteen minutes
earlier than younger siblings
because they need more time.
Hang a makeup mirror in girls
bedrooms to free the bathroom for
others.)
Kick off the day together.

Fantastic Treatment
Dear Editor:
SThe Ladies Axiliary
of Gulf Pines Hospital
received this note, and
would like, to pass it
along- '
While vacationing at
T.H. Stone State Park. I
discovered I had brought
a case of poison oak from
home. Over the weekend
my face and arms swelled
terribly and I finally
decided to go to the emer-
gency room.
I can't ;say. enough,
about the fantastic treat-,
ment I received from
everyone from the clerks,
nurses, Dr,. and. admitting
people (and anyone else
I've forgotten).
My insurance is evi-
dently, going to pay for
everything.
I noticed you are in,
the process of a'massive
remodeling program and
since the tnp to the clinic-


to the Editor .


cost me nothing, I am
sending you a small check
to add to whatever
fundraising you might be
doing.
SAnd again, thanks so
much for what turned out
to be a ver, very pleasant
ex-perience.
Mary Lee Cook
Edgewater. FL

Thanks, Port St. Joe
Dear William H..
I m sending a huge
thanks to Port St. Joe:
for'its generous support of
the IMuscular Dystrophy
Association oni Labor Day'
weekend! It was heart-
warming to see people
across the countrV com-
ing together.to, help fami-
lies affected by neuro-
muscular diseases.Your,
support makes it possible
for MDA to keep the,
engines running at full
speed on worldwide
research seeking treat-

made so ciate the hard work of

BIG Thank You
Dear Editor,
We wanted to give the
Chamber of, Commerce a
BIG Thank you fodr their
hard work to promote the'
Scallop Festival.', On
Friday, I recein.ed a copy
of an article froin a news-
paper in .the Palm Beach,
area,(my mom lives south
of there) that was promot-
ing the festival. On Fnday
and Saturday,. our, busi-
ness had many visitors
that, were, -probably in
town. for the festival.


Thanks to all who are
responsible
Wade and Paula Clark

Nothing Wrong With beaches
Dear Mr. Ramsey,
I like most of the
other people that reside
here in Mexico Beach
could not help seeing the
advertisement or whatev-
er it might be called', refer-,
ring to the Mayor and the
City, Council, by a group
or a single person by the
name Of save our beaches.
They made a number
of accusations and innu-
endos, but nothing sub-
stantial, no real exam-
pies.
As for businesses up
for sale there are no more
or less since we have been
here. I think if someone
Swas to make the right
offer, most people wotild
sell. I can't see where they
came uip with the name of


save our beaches, there is


save our beaches, there is
nothing wrong with therr I
I believe we have the best
beaches in the state of
Florida.

I can only figure that
the Mayor and City
Council must be doing
something right, or these
kind of childish things
would not be called for by
a few citizens or a would-
be loser.
Stuart Charney


Kudos for Dr. Ivers
Hi:
I would like to con-
gratulate Dr. Ivers for
upgrading the medical
care for Gulf Co. He took a
hospital that looked more
like a place to raise mush-
rooms, than a place to
treat the sick. He opened
a clinic that is next to
none. He has established
an emergency room that
is able to treat people for
heart attacks, gun shots,
snake bites and knife
wounds and auto acci-
dents. He has opened a
second clinic in the down-
town area to better serve
the public and upgrade
the downtown area.
