Isidore Comes Ashore
Topical Storm Isidore CausesErosion Problems at Cape
by Tim Croft
Izzy caused a bit of tizzy in
Gulf County but the county
escaped the most serious aspects
of the" storm as it splashed on
land last Thursday.
Tropical Storm Isidore
spawned tornadoes,, widespread
flooding anrd torrential rains ,to'
the west, but ,a weather anomaly
and distance helped spare Gulf
SCounty the worst.
S"We did well,' said county
Emergency Management director.
Larry Wells. "We observed that
during the majority of the storm
we were beyond the rain bands,
the feeder bands, so we didn't get
nearly the rain that the surround-,
'ing counties to the west got."
For the 24-hour period from' 7
a.m. Thursday through 7 a.m.
Friday, 2.18 inches of rain fell at
the Port St. Joe wastewater treat-
One.of 'the reasons, was the
upper atmospheric conditions
around Isidore, Wells said.
Isidore did not 'shift in its
track moving directly north
toward New Orleans. but it was a
broad stormniof significant size on
the east side of its center of con-
However, Wells noted, there
was a dry-air front on the west
side and the storm made the typ-
ical counter-clockwise motion,
that dry air was sucked up and
widely distributed on the east side
of the storm;
'That's why we started to get
this drying out by (Thursday)
afternoon," Wells said.
Which is not to say that Gulf
County escaped unscathed.
There was isolated flooding in
town and more extensive flooding
on Cape San Bias.

wixnmng the Florida Lottery..
Yet that is precisely what has
occurred with Joe Hendrix and
Jim Fensom, class of 1968 at Port
St. Joe High. who now find them-
selves together among 17 mem-",
bers of the Gullf of Mexico Fishery
"When you think of all the
miles of coast and millions of peo-
ple (along the Gulf Coast) it's pret-
ty phenomenal.". Fensom said
from hrs Panama City office."It's
really kind of unbelievable. I can't
even explain how we ended up on
the Council at the same time." -
One can practically hear the
opening bars of the theme from
the Twilight Zone.
Fensom is about to undertake
his fourth one-year term on the
council. Having served as vice-
chairman last year, he will take
the chairman's seat this year.
Hendrix began' his first term
The two grew up doors apart
from each other along Garrison
. Avenue and have. remained close
friends for the last three decades.
"We've known each since we
were three years old," Hendrix
said from his Harlingeri, Texas
.office. "There were about four or
five of' us that had a regular
"There were 56 people in our
graduating class, which was a
Unique situation. We were what Is
'known as a 'war babies' class. We
were born around the time of the
Korean Conflict and there were a
lot of fathers who were not at
home because of the war."
From those early days on the
beaches and in the waters around
Port St. Joe, the two men set the
tone for their lives.
Hendrix, who calls Harlingen,
near the Mexican border, home,
earned bachelor's and master's
degrees in marine biology from
Florida State University.
He has worked in aquacul-
ture and fish farming for more
than 20 years in Texas, served on
,the. U.S. Environmental Protec-
'tion Agency's Gulf of Mexico, Citi-
zen Advisory Committee and is
now an aquaculture 'consultant.
"We lived on the bay and the
beaches when we were kids,"
Hendrix said. "I was lucky to be
able to pursue an opportunity."
Fensom became an attorney,
but never turned his back on his
love of the. water, fishing, boating
and diving throughout the Gulf.
"I've always had a personal
interest in the Gulf," Fensom
said. "Personally, I think our fish-
ing is better than anywhere in the
.Gulf. There are more. charter
boats in Panama City than any-
where on the coast.",
As theypursued their respec-
tive careers, the two remained in
constant touch, sharing stories of
family and friends as well as a
common interest in protecting the
valuable eco-systems of the Gulf.
"I've been interested in the
management of the resources for
awhile," Hendrix said. -
That they would wind up sit-
ting on the Gulf of Mexico Fishery
Management Council at the same
time is stunning, more so when
considering the process for'select-
ing council members.
Each state from Florida to
Texas gets one seat on the
Council, one of eight similar pan-
els across the country.
Several members come from
various stakeholder agencies and
the rest are named by. the U.S.
Secretary of Commerce.
Those members must. be.
nominated by their states for con-
sideration by the Commerce Sec-
retary, which makes the chances
of two men from the same small

them insight few could offer.

distress) right now.

Tropical Storm Isidore came ashore over inh Louisiana and I

weather with very little Afnfare. .,

appeared St. Joseph Peninsula was in danger of becoming St.
A mound pf rocks alongthe Gulf of Mexico side ofSR 30-E was
placed after Hurricane Opal in 1995. in hopes they would protect
the roadway along the low-lying area at Stump lfole.
The huge rbck mound was little match for Isidore's tidal surge
and; wave action. Furthermore, SR 30-E yvas well on its way to
being eroded away Thursday morning. ,
Two. days prior to this event' DOT oftcials said they would
have to get permission for DEP in order to place more rock or
debris at Stump Hole.to shore. up the protective barrier. Eidently
as of Thursday that permission had not been received and, just as
anticipated, the rock mound was undermined rather quickly.
Gulf County Sheriff Department officials and DOT responded
to the area and DOT had dump trucks full of rock to give some
added protection, but they did not yet have permission from DEP
to place additional rocks. So, in the meantime residents, SO. per-
sonnel, and DOT watched the road erode while everyone was wait-
ing for word from on high to take necessary action to apply pro-
Gulf County Sheriff Frank MeKeithen was at the Stump Hole
during this time frame and it could be an understatement to say
he was rather frustratedd". After listeningto his description of this
scenario I got the impression that most everyone at the site felt
like a fireman standing by a burning house with a fire hose in his
hands, but didn't have the order to turn on the nozzle, so just
" watched the house burn.
This went on for hours as little by little the roadway began to
erode as everyone just watched ahd kept calling for permission
from DEP to.take action.
I wasn't .teie.epersonally so I don't know exactly what hap-
pened during this several hour event-It may be best. that \.
don't know everything that took place for that matter. -
What I do know is that I've received comments and notes pro-
claiming Gulf County Sheriff Frank McKeithen as a "hero".
As Sherri Dodsworth put, "He (McKeithen) is an absolute hero
to us Cape residents out here."
Some of the details as to exactly how Sheriff McKeithen got

but the bottom line is it got "done before the road was completely,
Hopefully- before the next storm makes landfall in this area
there will be a little better plan in place for making emergency
repairs to roadways such as CR-30-E. It is kind of embarrassing
for all governmental agencies at all levels to be sitting in place
with all the. necessary repair materials and watching a roadway
erode away because the right person hasn't sent his OK to do
what has to be done.

Tommie Speights, FDOT District 3 public information officer, Rep. Allan Bense, R-Panama City, and
Sandra Chafin, executive director of the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce (1-r), unveiled new roads
signs that will be erected to direct travelers on U.S. 98 and Hwy. 71 to downtown Port St. Joe.
Port St. Joe's New Downtown
Directional Signs Unveiled
by Tim Croft
When Rep. Allan Bense, R-
Panama City, dons a suit and tie
the occasion must be something
on the auspicious side.
Bense was in town Tuesday
morning as a kind of official get-
Sacquainted with members of the
Gilf County Chamber of Com-
merce as well as to unveil new
signs directing visitors to Port St.'
Joe toward the downtown area..
SThe new. signs came about"
from conversations Bense bhad
with downtown merchants during
a walking tour in August.
And on Tuesda\' the new
signs, ,simple and direct,' were
unveiled. They will soon be in

'is going to be an impact on com-
mercial harvest, but at the same
time giving ample opportunity for
the recreational fishenes. because
in Florida, like. in Texas,, tourism
has a big impact on the economy."
Those are some of the'very
issues Fensom has been wrestling
with for three years.
The first priority is to protect
the resource," Fensom said. "Sec-
orid there is a balancing of the
user groups ... From there is gets
And, with all too much fre-
The Council carn hardly make
a decision, from fishing moratori-
ums to regulations to bag limits,
that is not bemoaned by, some'
stakeholder group. *
It is simply SOP for Council
"We take a recess, that's not'
controversial," Fensom said:with
a chuckle. .,
"I have been impressed by the
overwhelming number of people
who contact me about a Council
decision ... arid they end the con-
* versation with, 'You do what you
have to do to protect the resource,
and we'll live xwith it.' That's the
issues, regullatory..issues and the
implementation of regulations,
Fensom said, makes the Council's
work, "the most difficult regulato-
ry process I've seen." '
And now, 34 years since leav-
ing Port St. Joe High School, two
graduates and lifelong friends, the
nucleus of that "neighborhood
gang" have matriculated together
to the Council. .
"We think it's' pretty neat,"
Hendrix said, in a mild under-
statement. "We've been talking for
awhile, since my name' was first
mentioned, that it would be inter-
Hwy. 71, pointing to the down--
town area. ,
"I went 'door to door at the
businesses and I learned a lot
when I knocked on the doors in
Gulf County," Bense said., One
thing I learned is that there is
nothing to point people to down-

ment of Transportation district

only talking to folks here in Port
St. ,Joe. but lor listening to'the
Needs of Gulf County,' :said"
Chamber of Commerce executive
. director Sandra Chafin.'
Another issue Bense dis-
cussed ,with Speights was the fea-
sibility of a left-turn lane at First
'Street and U.S. '98 for traffic
heading toward downtown; .
S.However, Speights said there
were too many constraints to cre-'
ating such a lane.,
I..n the alternative. Speights
said the FDOT will adjusqjWalk"

ing that as compared to his home

Isidore Blows in a Red Booby
by Tim Croft
Tropical Storm Isidore
brought with it buckets of rain
and stiff winds, but it also carried
a rare bird to these parts.
A red-footed booby, a bird so
rare to Florida that there have
been just 20 reported sightings in
the state, arrived, emaciated,
dehydrated and fatigued, on the
Cape last week with the storm.
It is currently sitting docilely
on the back porch of Lanny and
Rachel Blair, local volunteer
wildlife rehabbers, at the. Old
Saltworks. on Cape Sanr Blas.
The Blairs were called when
the bird, with bright red webbed
feet and light blue beak and head,
was found on the Cape.
That the bird is in Northwest.
Florida is somewhat astounding,
according to Tom Lewis with the
St. Vincent National Wildlife
"They are rare" Lewis said.
'There have only been 20 sight-
ings of these birds in Florida", and
those have been in extreme
.' Southern Florida, -such as the
Keysand the. Dry Tortugas.
And while it is not uncommon
for land-based birds to be blown
into strange locations by large
storms, that is not the the case
with the red-footed booby ,
The species are pelagic,
meaning they are offshore birds
found primarily flying over open

Lewis said. "They fly in the open

The theory is that the bird
was picked up in the swirl of

the birds are more common.
From there the bird' laboring

ahead of the winds and rain on
the eastern side of the storm and

whether the bird will survive.

of its ordeal often kills such,
"It is in an emaciated, weak-
ened state," Lewis said.
Though the odds on survival
.are long, Lewis has advised the,
Blairs to find squid, saltwater i
food to which the booby is aceus-
tomed and finds sustenance, to
feed the bird.
, The Blairs secured some
squid and the change in diet

can be restored to allow it to. be
released locally or to transport the
bird south to a zoo, refuge or
sanctuary where it can be nursed
back to health.
"If it doesn't survive I've asked
to submit it to .the Florida Muse-
um of Natural Histor" so that we

"Cottondale was a good, hard

Jaguars Start Football
Season with Two Wins
'They can't win if they can't
score" is a theme that the coaches
of the 9-10 year old Jaguar
football team have repeated to. the
defense time and time again. It
appears that the players have
taken it to heart because in their
first two games they have given up
no points and. very few yards,'
dominating the opposition's
On Tuesday, September 24,
the team traveled to Blountstown
for their first game in the Big ,
Bend League. It was a defensive
struggle from the get go. Jaguar .
offense moved the ball well in the
first half but penalties and
fumbles kept them off the.
scoreboard. Blountstown's offense
included many reverses and
double reverses but the Jaguar
defense was prepared and shut
down everything to the outside.
Blountstown did move the ball on
several off tackle plays but not
enough to score. Just before the
end of the first half Calvin (third
man) Pryor broke one for almost
seventy yards and a touchdown,
only to have it called back
because of a clip.
In the second half the Jaguar
coaches made an adjustment that
stopped Blountstown's off tackle
plays arid their offense had
nowhere to run. Jaguar offense,
was having trouble moving the
ball, too. Then, with only 52
seconds 'left on the clock and the
ball on Blountstown's 25-yard
line, third man went around left
end behind a devastating block by
Chris Cochran for the game's only
touchdown. Jaguars 6, Blounts-
On Saturday, September 28
the Jaguars traveled to Wewa for a
game postponed by weather.
Jaguar offense played extremely
well with very few errors. Time
after time they smashed into the
middle of Wewa's line, success-
fully playing. possession type
football. The blocking .of Luke
Linton, Steven Denton. Dillon
McGhee, C.J. Abert, Walter
Bowers, Enoch Mathes, Willie
Quinn, Dylan Hester and Timothy
Caswell kept opening holes for the
running backs. Quarterbacks
Raheem Clemons and Nathan
Tarantino showed off their ball
handling skills. Cochran and
Pryor ran hard, punishing the
Wewa defensive players trying to
tackle them. The result was six
points in the first half and six
points in the second half.
Meanwhile, Wewa just

Dru Tolerance What
SDoes It Mean?
S The word tolerance wheri applied to drugs is not par-
S ticularly a good thing: For, it can mean that over a period of
time our body has become adjusted to a medicine arid the
* drug will no longer achieve the desired effect it once did.
This tolerance effect can apply to many types of corn-
mon use drug products-laxatives, cough preparations, skin
treatment creams, and ointments.-With prescription medi-
cines the tolerance effect can be even more serious. We will
always caution you when such a possibility exists

Sometimes, braces alone
won't properly realign teeth and
laws. In such cases, protruding
upper and lower laws and other
facial abnormalities can be cor-
rected by a collaboration between
an orthodontist, an oral surgeon
and a general dentist.
The resulting technique is
orthogriathic (meaning straighl-
jaw) surgery. The surgeon and
orthodontist, using X-rays and
casting materials, will carefully
plan the procedure,' which may
include extraction of wisdom teeth'
or removal of part of the jaw itself
(nrot;as bad as it sounds).
The ultimate 'goal, of ,such
straightening and realignment is to
improve both chewing action and
overall l appearance. In many
*cases, the final result is little shori of
miraculous, improving not only the
patient's looks, but his or her entire:

In thinking back to "our
childhood, some of the first
memories may be of the times we
spent with friends: We learned all
sorts of things from our peers
about the ;wbrld, outside our
families. By talking to friends, a
child may learn that another
Child's parents often argue, make
him go to bed early, or give him anji
allowance. Children frequently
compare themselves to their
peers. School age children begin,
,to acquire many friendships
duririg their middle .and late
childhood. Many of these
friendships are formed at school.
Making new friends is a very
important developmental change
in a child's life. During middle and
late childhood, children spend an
increasing amount of time in peer'

Don't Overlook Zero-Coupons
By: .Andy Wilknson
.As the stock market contiri-
ues to receive the lion's share of'
attention, it is easy for investors
to overlook the many good invest-
ment opportunities that exist out-
side of equities. For those who are
saving for major future expenses.
Like college tuition or retirement.
and prefer less volatility than the
stock market, there are a number
of different vehicles that can help
investors achieve their goals. One
example is zero-coupon secun-
ties-often referred to as zeros."
Zero-coupons are fixed
income securities that are sold at
substantial discounts from their
face value. The securities are
named "zeros" because they offer
no periodic interest payments.
SInstead. investors redeem zeros
for their full lace value once they
have reached maturity. The differ-
ence between the discounted pur-
chase price and the redemption
value is the investor's return on
The yields available for zero-
coupons will change with the pre-

nology Conference on October 10.
from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the
Student Union Conference Center
The conference is designed to
convey to businesses in Bay
County and Northwest Florida the
need to stay informed about
changes in technology and how
these changes affect them.
From an economic develop-
ment standpoint., the infra-
structures of Bay County need to
keep up with these changes in
order to attract innovative high
tech industries. Today, growth
theonsts agree that technological
change and innovation are
significant determinants of long-
S term economic growth. High tech
industries are playing a vital role
in gauging the performance of the
U.S. economy. Further. they are
determining which metropolitan
areas and states are achieving

However, for any given yield, the
longer a zero has until it reaches
maturity, the greater its price dis-.
count. And while length to matu-
rity can vary anywhere from one
to 40 years. most zeros are
designed as long-term invest-
ments with maturities of 5 years
In the event that 3 zero-

nty. secondary markets in which
zeros are actively bought and sold
each business day are main-
tamed. Depending on current
interest rates, liquidating a zero

return more or less than wvla-t

investors with liquidity concerns.
Because investors can select
the maturity of their choice from
the assortment of zero-coupons
traded on the market: a very use-
ful zero-coupon investment strat-
egy called "laddering" is
commonly associated with zeros.
This strategy entails buying mul-
tiple zeros that will reach maturity
at determined intervals. For
example, an investor saving for. a
retirement that is 5 years away.
could buy. zero-coupons that
mature in 6, 7, 8. etc. years.
Using this laddenng strategy, he
or she will consistently receive a
specific aniount of income from a
stream of zeros throughout retire-
Zero-coupons are also a pop-
ular choice for parents looking to
save money for future college
tuition expenses. For example. the
parents of an 8-year-old child can
buy zeros that mature in 10. 11.
12, and 13 years-thereby receiv-
ing their investment returns for
four straight years after that child

Before purchasing zero-
coupons. investors should be
aware that the interest that
accrues might be subject to

though no interest payments are

that a tax advisor be consulted
