' Emergency
Beach Clean Up
OKd by DEP
In response to Tropical Storm
'Isidore, the Department of
Environmental Protection's
Bureau of Beaches and Wetland
Resources has today issued a sec-
ond emergency order, authorizing,
beach clean ups for portions of St..
Joseph Peninsula -in Gulf county,
Escambia, Santa Rosa, and.
Okaloosa counties were included!
in the first emergency' final "order
issued on Fnday. September 27.
The emergency order, autho-
rizes local governments to. issue
permits to private and public
property owners for minor actilvi-
ties necessary to remove debris,
return sand to the beach and
repair surviving, dune walkovers

i Enrollment numberses that
appeared to give district officials
some room to breath last month
now have them holding their
breath.
Removing Adult School and
pre-K students from the mix, the
district has lost some 18 students
since last month, with enroll-
ment. which peaked at 2.121 the
first two weeks of September is


now at 2,103. according to num-
bers 'pi-oided' by' individual'-
schools.
That decline comes at a some-
Ywhat critical time.
This week is one of the bench-
mark weeks for state calculation
of FTE. or full-time equivalent
students.
The state adjusts its funding
of public schools based on actual
bodies in seats several times a
year.

I


With the district having pro- .
je.ted, back in November 2001.
enrollment of 2,100 students,
staying at or above that mark.is.
crucial for .budgetary purposes
and maintaining the predicted
flow of money from the state
under its incredible complex for-
mula for funding schools.
S And while the October count
is still above that 2,100. it does
not bode all that well for Febru-
ary, when the next FTE calcula-
tion is done and when historically
districts find they have less stu-
dents than started the school
year.
"We had a cushion," said
Superintendent of Schools Jerry
Kelley. "Now .we are looking very
tight there."
The slippage in enrollment
across the six public schools is
like the tnc)le of a creek that
becomes a stream.
Every school is down, by one
or two students, from the highs of
last month.
"Where did they go?" Kelley
said. "We don't know.'!
In other action dunng Tues-.
day's regular monthly meeting
and a workshop that followed, the
board: ,
Approved advertising a
change to board policy that would
make it a goalto a build a contin-
gency, reserve or., "rainy-day"
fund, take your. pick 'of terms, of 5
percent."
The policy makes it only a
goal, not a mandate, and in fact
says the goal .may be "unattain-
able."
It adds that the district will
make an attempt to build the
fund 5 percent .at a time over the
coming'years. If that minimum is
nrot met in a given fiscal year. the
Superintendent will provide.writ-
- ten explanation as to the reasons.
In general, the policy follows a
.recommendation by the state
Office of Program. Policy and Gov-
ernment Accountability that
school budgets have a 3-5 percent
contingency fund to handle emer-
gency financial situations, such
as a hurricane.
The Gulf County Education
Association, while in agreement
on the worthiness of the goal of
building a reserve fund, ques-
tioned the need for a change to
board policy.
"We question not the reserve
but the need to put it in school
board policy," said GCEA presi-
dent Judy Campbell. "We ques-
tion and wonder why we need to
do this."

A Breath of Fresh Air



Greg Wood Received "Brand New Life" After Lung Transplant


by Tim Croft
The guess is that Greg Wood
could be a heckuva poker player.
Talking with this disarmingly
polite and laid back 38-year-old ,
he belied no hint that jusi five
months ago doctors were count-
ing his future in days and weeks.
His quiet words belie nothing
of the ordeal he navigated just
three months ago when he under-
went a. double-lung bypass.
On the, other hand. maybe it
is precisely 'those trials that pro-
yides a perspective on life that few
of us can understand, an outlook
emitted by the mental and emo-
* tional muscles built by frightful
adversity.
Whatever, the case, Wood is
feeling like a man who has had
his ticket again bforthe ride of life.
S"It's like being brand new
again," Wood said.
Except ,his cystic fibrosis-
scarred lungs which were literally
suffocaung him with steady and
deadly progression have been
tossed aside, his new lungs allow-
ing the simple enjoyments too.
many of us take for granted.
"It's the little things," Wood'


said. "Walking without the oxygen
bottle. Walking. down to the mari-
na. Just t,-ing your shoe. You did-
n't want to do it (before) because
.you didn't want to, go that,long
without a breath.
"Just to yawn, to take a deep
breath like that. I don't take, it for,
granted."
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic

ingham.
progressive disease. According to
the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
the body is caused to produce
abnormally thick. sticky mucus,
due to a faulty transport of sodi-
um'and chlonde (salt) within cells,
lining organs such as the lungs


and pancreas.
Wood compares it to,a con-
veyor belt and trap door such as
with that' famous I Love Lucy
episode involving chocolate can-,
dies.
Only thing was, the conveyor
belt inside Wood's body worked.
the trap door just didn't.open.
Lung capacity, as well as the
ability of the pancreas to assist in
the digesting of food, are progres-
sively eroded: .
Wood was diagnosed at six
months. The disease and its com-
plications. such as the "nasty
tasting" tabletshe had to chew or'
the, breathing treatments, were
part of life.
Also part of the life was an
attitude that one can only
attribute to a supportive nurtur-
ing family that while treating the,
disease treated the boy as any
other.
"I was blessed." Wood'said.
-There were so many people who,,
had it rougher than me. lied a
normal life ... I've led a pretty
good life."
He did his chores, including
cutting the grass, and got his bot-
tom switched a time or two when
required.
'There was a work ethic' inr
his family. Wood said. "I think it
does (help with your mental out-
look). It lets you know you are,.
going to pull your weight and you
are capable of it."
While he wasn'tt the fastest
thing out there" he ran track, a,
vob-rruler. and "held my own."
"ft (his disease) wasn't
ignored, but it wasn't dwelled on."
Wood said. "It's 90 percent men-
tal."
But the toll from the disease
steadily increased as did the trips
to Gaminesv-ille and Shands Hospi-


tal, particularly after his 20th

equivalent of a category 5 hurri-

DOG DAYS
In last week's paper, Kes was


ruminating about when' dog days
ended. He tried to tie their end
into the unusual behavior of his
-dog.
'The REAL limits of dog days
are somehow .governed by the
stars and planets and their sum-
mer solstice. I .read that inr, a
book, out at the library, a: few
...years ago. It didn't make enough
of an impression, oni me to
remember.just how it went, until
now.
I DO remember how my offi-
cial unofficial prognosticator of
things of nature, the1.late .Jimmy
SG6reer-he ,of gasoline, station
fame--.-used to tell me.
Jimmy walked to work, p
3rd Street just about the time I
would get to work every morning.
at The Star.
One miiorning Jimmy hailed
me, .saying: "Wes, dog days are
-n6ow officially overk. I heard a
mocking bird singing this morn-
ing.
"They don't sing during dog

again! What a weak at bat! Maybe.
'I should just shoot myself. Maybe
the ground could open up and swal-'
low.me!
I'd slow just a mite. What's the
use!
"Run 'hard," I'd hear Chick
even over my' own thoughts. "You'
can't ever tell."
r Chick King was the; smartest
baseball man I have ever.known.
He coached' the Amerincan Legion
team on which I was trying, so hard
to be a contnbutig member! H.6e'd.
spent several years in the big,
leagues. He could be tough, believe
youime! But he didn't go :all; nuts,
and kick the ground or yell at you
or make a big scene when you
bounced one weakly back to the
Sitcher. Instead, he encouraged'
you to run as fast as you could to
firstbase. .
I reckon,' uniike a lot of coach-
es I' know,he had made an out one
time before.
"You can't ever tell" was his.
Favorite expression. I suppose lhe.
thought the pitcher might have a
heart attack before- he could ,get
the ball outiof'his glove. Maybe he
thought a gust of wmd night kick
some dust into the first baseman's
eyes as the ball, winged its. way
toward him. Maybe he thought
turtle dove would swoop down
from Heaven and collide with the
ball in mid flight.
Or just maybe he had seeni
enough baseball over. the years to
know that the pitcher' doesn't
make that play every time! Maybe
one in ten hundred 'he drops the
ball trying to extract. t from fiat
big mitt. Or he throws it over the
first baseman's head.'. .
Hope sprang eternal from
Chick Kng!y I'v hit weak pop-ups
to center field, and before- my
thoughts could turn to the "awful"'
I'd hear his big voice "Run it out.-
"YOU. CAN'T tFR:TELLF ,
We'd drive over'to Jackson.to
play those big city guys. They had
a great team! Really much better
than ours. Chick didn't worry
about heavy odds'and underdogs.
His pre-game talk was always,'
."Hang in there, men, play smart
and play hard, you can't ever tell!"'
Listen, we actually bejt them a few'
times.
My' girl friend who didn't like
'baseball (odr at least the ,!way .1

Chick fof consolation. "Son, .you'

'B: the next season I was play-'

With a mutual aid agreement
with Gulf and Bay counties in
place, a new EMT and firefighter
hired, Mexico Beach has quickly
moved to providing comprehen-
sive emergency care for its citi-
zens.
The mutual aid agreement
puts Gulf County EMS respond-
ing to medical emergencies in the
city' after. 5 p.m. each night,
reducing:. response times which
could be as long as 30-40 minutes
from Bay County, down to less
than a quarter of an hour.
.A push this summer to have
fire. and police personnel trained
as first responders has also flour-
ished, according to Police Chief
Brad Hall, bringing-initial assis-,
tance to the scene of any medical
emergencies in mere minutes.
The city council 'also gave
approval during Tuesday's regu-
lar council meeting to hire the
city's first emergency medical
| 'technician,. Mitchell Granger, a
firefighter with t the Bay County

In other business conducted
during Tuesday's regular monthly
meeting:
S"* 'Voters, were' notified that
they will receive two separate bal-
lots when votig in next month's

Due to the .time required to
have ballots printed to state-man-.
dated standards, ballots for the
general election were. already at
the printer before qualifying,
closed for the city municipal elec-
btions last Fnday.
Therefore, voters will receive
both a ballot for the general elec-
tion and a separate ballot for the
municipal .election, which
iriclides: the mayor's and Group 2

Those wishing to vote absen-
tee are encouraged to immediate-
ly, contact the Bay County Super-

In making her argument
Campbell cited several budgetary
issues which have become
embroiled in the ongoing talks
between the union and the dis-
trict.
In a nutshell, it could be
argued that the union remains
skeptical about the district's stat-
ed financial straits and any move-
ment of money. while the board
continues to offer far less for rais-,
es and benefits than the union is
requesting, particularly given that
teachers received only incremen-,
tal increases, 1.8 percent to eligi-
ble teachers; the past two years.:
Kelley and the board mem .:
bers, who voted 510 in favor of the
policy change were unmoved
"I think it is wise and prudent
to have a reserve." Kelley said. "I
think it is important we do this."
Learned that the re-roofing
of Port ,St. Joe High School will
now top $950,000. .
The board approved one more ..
change order, for $27,164, to the -
priginal roofing contract with Bel-
' Mac. The board had already
approved 845,866 in change
orders, to: the contract with Bel-
Mac, originally $810,000, is now
$883,030.
The change orders have been
necessary due to degrading of
maternal and insulation under the
roof that was undetectable until
work on the roof began. ,
Additionally, the board on
Tuesday approved spending
S70.000 on work to the domes on
the ::-roof, which consultants
advised should be done before the
new permanent roof 'is put in
place. .
The\ school roof has had no
major work done' to it, since, the
school was built some. 30 years"
ago. .
Approved a final list of
about 24 teachers in the distinct
who are teaching out of their
fields.
Notices went out late last,.
week to all parent concerning
.the specific teachers at each'
school who are teaching out of
their certified field.
Under state law, teachers cans, ,
teach out of their field for one year
and the district must notify par-
ents of children who are being
taught by Instructors teaching

.told tlhe board that Dead Lakes ,
Park is now open for business. In-.,,
the past when water levels were'
low it was hard to impossible to
launch a boat into the Dead
Lakes. Work at the park site
should eliminate that problem
since a new channel has been
dug. The park is also receiving
major renovation.
During a special meeting,
held in Wewahitchka last Monday.
the board approved bids for the
purchase ofa new Jeep Wrangler
Sahara to be. used by the Gulf.
County Tourist Development
Council. The Jeep was purchased
from Thomas Chrysler-Plyrnouth-
Dodge of Quincy for S24.917.
They also agreed to advertise
for insurance proposals, dis-
cussed and approved grants for

gifted students in specific sub-,
jects.,
This year, each school' has a
certified; teacher, or one seeking'
certification. instructing gifted
students in subjects chosen by
each respective school's adminis-,
tration.
"That's one of the positive
aspects, each school is choosing
the subject matter," Kelley said.
"We need-'to do what's' good for
kids if we can. It's so different
from what we've done in .the past
we'll just have to fix it if it isn't
working." '
'There are.98 gifted students
being served by the county. Other
than a delay in getting things
going at Wewahitchka ; High
School.- in part due to new leach-.
ers and administrators -.the pro-
grams are off to a solid start, Kel-,
ley said.
The board also discussed a
letter from the County. COmmis-
sion requesting the district pay 35
percent based on its percentage
of the back taxes received of the
$65,278.24. in attorney's fees the
county has been billed in pursu-

Board attorney Charles
Costin said he had requested
.more information from the coun-
ty, but that he could find no
authority in statute for the dis-
trict to pay the attorney's fees in
such a case.
"The only person obligated to
pay attorneys' costs is the delin-
quent taxpayer," Costin told the
board.
He added that he believed the
responsibility of securing such
fees was the Tax Collector's office.,
However, the final paragraph
in a letter from County Commis-
sion ,Chairman Carmen
McLemore indicated the Property
Appraiser and Tax Collector have
been requested to include those
fees in any future 'settlements,
indicating that apparently that,
was not the case with the Smur-
fit-Stone litigation.

United Way Community Campaign


by Tim Croft
.Extend a hand, but keep it in
the community.
That, boiled down, is the
essence of the Second Annual
Community Campaign by the
Uffited Way.
The goal this year is simple.
, build on last year's success by
sharing more than the S 14,000
raised in the community, includ-
ing- contributions by local state
employees.

"Our goal is S25.000 and I
think we will pass it." said Joyce
Watters, resource development
director for the United Way of
Northwest Florida. "We are'hoping
with the community supporting
this we will be able to kick in
more than last year.
"You have to have people on
the ground to help you. I know
people here 'and they are loving
and compassionate. They know
what it means to be out of a job,


in trouble, and I think that is why
,we got such a good response last,
year."
The United Way of Northwest.
Florida'is an umbrella organiza-
tion spanning six counties, from
Holmes to Gulf.
Each county has a committee
which sifts through agency
requests to be part of the United
Way and designates which agen-
cies will receive funds.
In Gulf County. funds raised
last year helped the disadvan-
taged secure transportation for
dialysis treatments.
Early Childhood Services,
which assists so many mothers
danling on a financial tightrope
to secure child care.
Among the six counties, the
United Way donated S100,000 for
hospice care.
And a host of agencies have
used United Way funds as the
local matches for state and feder-
al grants.


Nearly two dozen agencies
and organizations in Gulf County,.
from .the Boy Scouts to the Asso-
ciation of Retarded Citizens, ben-
efited last year from the United
Way.
And in part as an answer to
scandals which occurred in other
states arid cities, the United Way
has implemented a lengthy list of
accountability measures for bene-
fiting organizations.
Among other items. organiza-
bons must be registered non-
profits. provide audit reports and
budgets to demonstrate how Unit-
ed Way funds are spent
The bottom line for any
donors is that this is community
lundraising.
'All United Way organizations
are separate and independent."
Watters said. "United Way dona-
tions go along with the mores 'of
the community they serve. They
money raised here stays here."
Raising dollars is just the


S
lij


O


most prominent part of the Unit-
ed Way's rrission.
There is also a referral line -
"800-696-8740 -, manned by vol-
unteers 24 hours a day to direct
people in trouble, in crisis,. to
agencies and organizations'that:
can help.
And they don't have to neces-
sarily be United Way organiza-
tions.
People who have problems
should c all before their problems
become a cnsis." Watters said.
"The United Way is a comrrmunity-
building effort ... family by lami-
lv."
"Family problems spill over to
school. Iotbs II you stem those
problems from becoming out of
hand. everybody benefits."
In another reform effort stem-
ming from past questions about
United Way lundraising in other
states there has never been a
s'riff of impropriety locally -
administration costs are kept at


M


roughly 6 percent.
Fundraising soaks up I per-
cent of dollars raised. leaving 83
percent of all monies to be direct-
ed at benefitting agencies and
organizations.
The community campaign will


last until sometime in November.
Allen Cox is this year acting' as
county chair of the fundraising
effort.

was as likely to let go of it as a
49er a pan of'gold. .
"Imay have been slower but I
was still fighting tooth and nail to4
do what I wanted." Wood said. "I.
Shouldn't quit. There were things I
still wanted to do. -:;
"I love my family so much I
couldn'tquit. I couldn't let them
down, or myself."
By May. however. Wood was-
on a ventilator at Shands. the
prognosis dire. Still Wood would
not give up, determined in his
mind to one day get off the
machine that was doing what his
lungs could not.
Then. a confluence of events
that escape easy explanation.
While being treated regularly
at Shands, Wood had. at the urg-
ing bf his local doctor, gone to the
University of Alabama at Birming-
ham to be evaluated as a trans-
plant candidate.
It is a major thing but what
other choice do you have." Wood
said.
After evaluations and consul-
tations in January and March. he
- was put on the candidate list on
April 4. a date etched in his mem-
or0y.
And despite his setback in
May. Wood remained a candidate
in the eyes of the doctors at UAB.
They didn't take me off. the
list. which I thought was rare."


Wood said.
In his own way. Wood would
not disappoint those doctors, or
himself.
-After eight days he finally
camne,off the respirator and imme-
diately began to do light exercise
by his bed. The next day he
walked for 20 minutes and from
there, the doctors at Shands
couldn't stop his soul or soles.
SBy the next month he was
back at UAB and within about five
weeks he stepped into the emo
ti uonal hurricane of waiting on the
right pair of lungs.

rather than a single. because or
the reality that the remaining dis-
eased lung %will infect the new one
For five months Wood waited
for his lungs while living at a dor
mitory-like townhouse on the
UAB campus. sharing his life and
plight with about a dozen other
individuals also waiting on trans
plants.
"They, become like your farmu-
ly." Wood said.
Mentally, emotionally, they.
bonded in a way few do. and made
the ume pass all that much easi-
er not to mention that Wood
become something of a Bingo afi-
cionado.
Then. on July 17. another
date Wood has carved in the
recesses of his brain. came news

that a pair of lungs had become
available.
"I was on. the list just a little
more than three months before
they had a set of lungs, which is
unheard of," Wood said, adding
that one of the group of patients
he had bonded with at- UAB had
been on the list for 12 years.
At this point, his lungs had a
mere 17 percent of their capacity
remaining.
After more than five hours of
surgery; a team of three doctors
implanted niew lungs into Wood.
He was off the venulator within
eight or nine hours after surgery.
"I had given myself two
weeks," Wood said.
And despite sometimes cnp-
pling pain from drainage tubes in
| his chest, he soon commenced a
routine of walking the halls of the
hospital. wearing a path on the
linoleum like breaking through a
previously. at least for him.
untamed wilderness.
After three weeks he was
allowed to return to his campus
II townhouse.
"I walked back to the town-
".house. because I told them I
walked from there to go in the
hospital and I was going to walk
back," Wood said.
And then, as his second mis-

Macoy Wins Tapper Tournament


'by Tim Croft
With the possible exception of
Clay Smallwood, the annual
George G. Tapper Invitational
proved a fun-filled weekend of golf
under gorgeous, though some-
what warm, skies.
And even Smallwood would
readily admit that the real winner
wasn't found on any scorecard,
but Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege.
'Things went really well," said
David Warriner, co-host with wife
TnSh of the event. "The weather
was great. although it could: have
been a little cooler. but itwas fine,
especially compared to the rainy
years we've had in the recent
past." -
The golf was stellar, led by 27-
year' -old Brian Macov who fired a
73-73-146 to win the Champi-
onship Flight A, Division by six
shots over'Clay Smallwood. the
four-time defending champion.
"'Actually. I think Clay was, a
little relieved.":Warriner said.
SThath two homegrown men.
i both stellar players out of the St.
Joseph Bay Country Club led the
championship flight, not to men-
tion Diision B winner Pat Patter-
* son. should come as no surprise.
'That course is tricky." War-
S- riner said. "It 'fakes a little local
S-. knowledge, particularly for the
greens.
"Everybody I think played
well. You don't have to be a tour-
nament-quality player. to come
ouf and have a good time. That's
*' wh'at makes it special."
The victor in, the weekend of
festivities that begins with a Fri-
day night cocktail party. is GCCC.'y
With gross receipts' of'
S' $40.000-845.000 and money, as .
well as bills. still cormng in. War-
S riner said he was confident that
the tournament would have
enough:.to endow a $i2.000
scholarship at the college in the
name of Iva Mae Herring.
Hemng. the long-time secre-
tary of George Tapper. passed
away earlier this year.
On her scheduled days off.
and even in retirement, she
expended much time arid sweat to
the Tapper Co.
"In honor of her we decided to
dedicate the tournament to her.'
Warnner said. She loved the col-
lepe.' .


WVarnner added that the Tap-
per Invitational consistently rais-
es bemteen S5.000-S15.000 each
.Nyear for the college and figured
"- this year would be no different.
I'm sure we'll be able to
endow the scholar-.hip this year."
Warnner said. "I wish there had
been more golfers but there is so
much going on these days.
Warriner added that ques-
tionaires were being sent to
patrons to solicit advice on mak-
Sng the tournament bigger and'
Betterr, .. .,
That the tournament has
become a success over the years
for GCCC wvas evidenced Friday
night as.college president Dr. Bob
McSpadden, and :other college offi-
cials supplemented the wait staff.
"They love it," ..Warnner said.
,"(McSpadden) does; truly'enjoy
getting out there and making sure
everybody was having a good time
and putting forward a good face
for the college."

REAL WOOD PRODUCTS
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 F
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 refurbished 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 "unfinished" furniture

V ORECK VAcuUM DEALER Now S

& OUTSTANDING SERVICE
made of real wood in its natural state. All of the natural
wood colors and patterns are beautiful to behold. Many
customers prefer this naturalnesss. Some choose only to
lacquer their selection or have
it done by a professional like


John.
Furniture is a major invest-'
ment for many people, lasting
a lifetime, and it isn't always
easy to find a previously
'W-2--- stained piece that blends well
J into your existing decor. Many
choose Reeves' unfinished fur-
.niture and provide an exam-
ple of the desired wood color,
and have him use his expertise
to create a match.
Reeves Furniture & Refinishing Shoppe offers every-
thing from tables and chairs to beds and bookshelves.
Check out his website at www.reevesfurniture. com to
glimpse at some of the furniture items offered.

Sharks Drop To 0-2


inm District 2-A Play


'The Port St. Joe Sharks
traveled to Liberty County Friday
night, but were sent home after
nearly three inches of rain fell in
about an hour, flooding the
football field late in the afternoon.
The District 2-A game was
rescheduled for Saturday-
afternoon, when the Bulldogs
handed the Sharks a 27-7 defeat. '
Port St. Joe dropped to 1.-4
overall on the season and 0-2 in
district play.'
"After watching the film, I
thought, that we .played fairly
hard," said- head coach John
Palmer. 'We didn't give up the big
plays, except for one pass play
that was a pick play. Our defense
kept us in there most of the,
afternoon and made them drive.
We showed some spark on offense.

Wewa Soccer Club players of the week... Hope Ludlam Hope is a
great defender and really knows how to get the ball out from in front
of her team's goal. She will do whatever it takes to defend that goal
and has proven that she means business when she is out on. that
field. If she is not defending the goal she is hustling on the field to
try and get the ball from the other team. Keep on hustling, Hope!
Cole Harper Cole played forward for the Phil's Grill team this
past Saturday. He did an outstanding job on the field and scored the
team's first goal. Cole also played a great game of defense too. Keep
up the good work, Cole!
Tara Walding Tara played a great game on Saturday for the
Harold's Sparkplugs team. She stayed on top of the ball the whole
game taking it away from the other team and defending our goal. No
matter how tired she was she just kept on hustling. Great job, Tara!

with a 22 to 8 victory over the
Franklin County Tiny Sharks.
Half way through the regular
season the Jaguars are 3 and 0
and are the only undefeated team
in the southern division of the Big
Bend League. A ,spot in the
playoffs is now guaranteed.
The game began with
Franklin County in' possession of
the football at their 40-yard line.
Four plays later, the Jaguar
defense had pushed them back, to
the 30-yard line and the PSJ
offense took. over. It took the
Jaguars only three offensive
plays, the last a 15-yard scamper
by Calvin Pryor, to put the ball in'
the end zone. Chris ,,Cochran
blasted in for the 2-point,
conversion.

.After the Jaguar defense

way back for a TD. The conversion
was good and the game was. tied
at 8 points each.
In the second half the
Jaguars totally dominated. The
offense had the ball first and
drove from their 40. to Franklin
,County's 10, only. to lose
possession on a fumble. The drive
was highlighted by a 30-yard
display 'of power when Cochran
went up the middle, breaking
tackles all along the way. The
Sharks' offense went, nowhere
once again' and they had to kick.
Two 20-yard runs, by Pryor put
the Jaguars ahead once again.
Cochran ran in the conversion.
The Jaguars: scored, once
more in the game when the
offense ran a beautifully executed
cross buck that went forty yards.
The PAT ,was not successful but
PSJ had a 22-8 lead.
So far this season the Jaguar
defense has not given up a
touchdown. In this game they did
not allow Franklin County a single,
first down. The offense is moving
the ball better all: the time. They
have a strong inside' power game
that sets. up bootlegs by
quarterback Raheem Clemons ,,
and sweeps by Calvin Pryor.
The next game is Saturday
against Chattahoochee at Shark
Stadium.. Chattahoochee, is the
best team in 'the northern
division, Jaguars the best in the
south. The match will be a game
no one will want to miss. '

'Birding Festival Takes Full Flight


Simple Concept
Hatches from SV
Wildlife Sanctuary

by Tim Croft
Marie Steele-Romanelli and
her cohorts at the St. Joe Wildlife
Sanctuary hatched an idea two
years ago for a festival celebrating
birding.
That idea has now taken full
flight.
The 2nd Annual Florida Pan-
handle Birding and Wildflower
Festival runs next Thursday
through Sunday, with programs
taking place from Leon to Bay
counties.
Last year's event was con-
fined to Bay, Franklin and Gulf
counties.
The concept behind the festi-
val is simple and appropriate for
an area that.is considered the last
stretch of Old Florida remaining.
"What can we do to educate
the public on how they can
* impact wildlife and what not to do
so that they can live in harmony
with nature?" Romanelli
said,.concerning the genesis of
the festival.
"It's a good educational pro--
ject. There is so much natural
resources here that people don't
know about."
And so the festival offers more
than 100 different events and
opportunities for visitors to
observe and embrace nature.
From opportunities to see
some of the ,470 verified species of
birds in the' state to tours of state
parks, the buffer preserve and
kayak tours, as well as lectures




.. ~.





^ ,









Monarch butterflies feed on
the plentiful fall wildflowers.
from a variety of nature special-
ists and scientists. visitors have a
veritable smorgasbord- of nature
activities from which to choose.
Birding is just the main piece.
There will also be presentations
and tours focusing on native-
plants, archaeology and stars;
with 'a. portable planetarium
brought over from Bay County.
"There are all kinds of things
going on," Romanelli said. "People
don't have to be hard-core birder,
that's the fun of it.
In addition to the education
component. the festival also
serves as the major annual
fundraiser for the St. Joseph
Wildlife Sanctuary.
And in this case what's good
for the goose is good for the gan-
Sder.
"It's good for the community,"
Romanelli said. "The economics of
birding are staggering."
As evidence. consider an-
analysis of last year's inaugural
festival by Dr. Tim Lynch of Flori-
da State University's Center for
SEconomic Forecasting and Analy-
sis. -
Lynch notes that wildlife.
viewing is worth $2 billion and
52,140 jobs in Florida alone.
The economic impact, direct
and indirect, including taxes gen-

rated. from last year's birding
festival was roughly $200,000.
Lynch further notes that just
.20 percent of the festival's atten-
dees were locals. Forty-eight .per-.
cent 'came from elsewhere in
Florida and 32_percent were from
out of state,
While some participants came
from as far away as Ohio. Indi-
ana. Illinois. Kentucky. Missouri
and Tennessee. most out-of-state
attendees came from the Deep
South.

that Gulf, Bay and Franklin coun-
ties should want to attract espe-
cially in the fall off-season time
frames," Lynch wrote in his
report.


And when tallying up the eco-
nomic impact of the festival,
Lynch wrote, "Clearly the festival
serves as a major, stimulus to the
local economy and as it grows so
will, the economic pulse from
greater numbers of visitors, b-oth
during the festival and across the
year as they continue to return
for other events to learn the won-
ders of Gulf, Bay and Franklin
counties.",
Near the closing of his report
L Lynch remarked on the funda-
mental attraction of the festival
3 and the region.
"Although the primary mes-
sage of this report is economic in
nature, the reader should' also
realize that there's a message
S. about the, tie between environ-
mental ethics and good business,"
Lynch wrote. "The key to eco-
tourism's sustainable economic
Development is access to the

things, the tourists will not come,

WES Welcomes Speech Therapist


By Lori Price
Speech problems may cause
'children difficulties in school. The
amazing task of learning to use
speech sounds is accomplished in
the preschool years with relative
ease for most children, but for
others, this task is difficult.
Children that have difficulty
learning how to produce clear,
intelligible speech may have one
of a number of types of childhood
speech impairments.
Articulation impairments
occur when a child cannot make a
particular speech sound. This
may be caused by a problem in
the mouth or nose structures that
are used during speech, such as a
cleft palate, or they may -be
caused by an abnormality in the
function of the muscles or nerves
involved in the production of
speech, such as cerebral palsy.,
However, most articulation

impairments have no ;known
cause. A typical example would be
a lisp.
Many -children experience
phionological impairments. For
example, -when children .are. 2
years old it is 'quite nornial that
they leave the last sound off the
ends' of words and say "ca" for
"cat," but by 3-3 1/2 years old
they should be putting sounds on
the ends of words.,
Speech pathologists have; a
variety of approaches for treating
speech impairments in children.
The type of approach chosen may'
depend upon the type of
impairmernt a child has. For
example, the treatment for a lisp
may involve instructing a child on
how to produce the "s" sound
correctly, follo11ed 'by lots of
practice at producing that
particular sound ,in words "and
sentences.
Treatment for phonological
impairments may involve
increasing a child's awareness
about hov. sp-ech :sounds make

I'm Free


Don't grieve me now, I' free..
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard Him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day.,
TO laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that place at the close of day..

If my parting left a void.
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes... these things I too, will miss.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored much.
Good friends, good times,
A loved one's touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me.
God wanted me now,
tie set me free.


Happy Birthday Momma.

some of the comments by the
students: .
S '"When I was at The Wilds I
made many life changing choices.
Spiritually. my life was impacted
in knowing that I'm not the only
teen out there with problems. I
intend to take what I've learned
and use it for a work in God's
Kingdom."
My favorite activity at The
Wilds.was the swinging rope.
G-oihg tubing{ was also- a fun
activity."
"The Wilds was fun and
exciting! The giant saving, the road
tnp. the waterfalls. the lakes and
the land trolley were great. The
craft shop was cool. too. and the
S. services were great, also."
The Wilds was really fun I
liked the giant swine and, the
sermons. The sermons were really
good There was also a water slide
that was really cold and fast. I
can't wait to go back."' -
"As I prepared to leave for The
Wilds, I wondered to myself what
kind of impact the next week
would have on my life. When,
remembering my last tnp to The
Wilds. I w'as skeptical. :However;
the past week surpassed all: my.

expectations. There are few times
that I have ever felt so close to
God wherever I went. In the
services, all throughout the day.
.even as I slept there was peace.
Maybe the sermons were sermons
that I have heard before, but I'm
not sure that I ever listened until
now. Maybe I didn't make any life-
changing choices that week. but
the Word of God that was
preached and the songs that
glorified Christ without being
-dressed up to sound acceptable
to the world, these I allowed to
sink into my heart and mind. I
know that what [ heard during
chapel and what I saw being lived
out in the actions of those %who
preached wxill assist me in life-
changing decisions. I will never
forget my trip to The Wilds. it was
not only a great experience, but a
week of lessons that \will further
me in my relationship with
Christ."
