PSJ Gets Offer to Develop 2
* Acres of Marina Outparcels
Fire destroyed this house in White City late Monday evening, no one was injured.
White City Home Destroyed by Fire
This home on Gardenia Street in White City was fully engulfed by fire late Monday evening. No one
was injured in the fire, which occurred shortly before 11 p.m., Deputies from the Gulf County Sheriff's
SOffice arrived on the scene to that crews from the White City Volunteer Fire Department had the fire near-
ly extinguished. Crews from the Port St. Joe Fire Department assisted in dousing the last of the flames.
The owner of the home is John Faircloth of Wewahitchka, according to the GCSO report, though John
SLynn, his girlfriend, Stephanie Strickland and Strickland's 19-month-old infant were currently living in
the house. Nobody was apparently home at the time of the fire, which remains under investigation by the
State Fire Marshall.
SPort St. Joe city commission-
ers have been attempting to stir a
little interest in the outparcels. of
property surrounding Port St. Joe
SRecent efforts to market the
property, valued at approximately
$2 million, have yielded no takers.
When the St. Joe Company leased
-the Port St. Joe Marina a few
years ago they also requested and
received the right of first refusal
should another party voice inter-
est in purchasing the outparcels
City commissioners would
like to see the property on tax
rolls and they want it developed
quickly for the same reason.
Rex Buzzett and Roy Smith
breathed new life into this effort
during Tuesday's board meeting
when they. offered to purchase
approximately two acres of the
property for $300,000. Their offer
noted an understanding of St. Joe
Company's right of refusal and
the city's timeline for development
of the property.
During discussions after the
board's meeting, Buzzett and
Smith said they would like to
build a multi-purpose office com-
plex on the property. The two
acres they want runs along
Baltzell Avenue from First Street
to what will one day be the right-
of-way for the continuation of
Second Street and extends 245'
During board discussions
City Attorney Russ Scholz advised
the board to table the offer until it
can be thoroughly reviewed.
The two acre proposal also
accounts for a relatively small
segment of one of the three out-
parcel areas initially advertised by
the board. The property initially
advertised was broken into three
separate parcels-one of which is
earmarked for hotel development,
another larger block of which the
property in Buzzett's and Smith's
proposal is a part, and six lots
adjacent to First Street along side
the marina complex.,
After discussion the board
voted to table action on the offer.
The board will likely include
action on this offer during a spe-
cial meeting Thursday, October
24, at 4:00.
During that special meeting
commissioners' will also review
paper work on the final negotia-
tions to contract out the city's
garbage collection services.

We Need At-
On November the 5th one of the items Gulf County voters'
will have placed before them on the general election ballot is
a referendum concerning their wishes to return to at-large
Voters have previously overwhelmingly given support to an
effort to return to at-large voting, but what makes- this ques-
tion a little different is the cost associated with a change. Gulf
is currently under a 1987 Federal Court consent decree to
vote by single member districts.
Gulf Commissioners have, with the exception of commis-
sioner- Nathan Peters, Jr, supported-in principal-an effort to
return to-at-large voting.
They also voted 4-1 for the following verbiage to appear on
the ballot: Should the Gulf County Commission expend
$750,000 to $1.4 million to challenge the present single mem-
ber district voting mandate and attempt to return to county-
wide at-large voting in Gulf County YES :_,_NO.
These, figures were given, to :the board by board attorney
,Tim McFarland, who stated that the numbers indicate a
worse case scenario should the issue have to be challenged all
the way to the Supreme Court. He' also told commissioners.
that federal attorneys advising the board did not expect such
costs to occur. /
Not having a test case to compare the cost or probability
of overturning a federal consent decree, it was anybody's
guess as to what might occur and how much it. might cost to
initiate a challenge.
It looks like we now have a test case to hang our hats ohn.
Washington County has been challenging a, federal con-
sent decree on single member districts for some time now and
has been successful in efforts to overturn it. The judge ruled
in favor of Washington County and has called for the voters of
Washington County to decide by popular vote whether they
want to remain under single member jurisdiction or return to
at-large voting. ,
After hearing this news I called Washington County Clerk
of the Oircuit Court Lihda Cook and asked her, "How much
did it cost?": :: --
After going back and reviewing her records. Clerk Cook
said, 830,000. ,
Now this may be a best case scenario. I don't know. What
- this case does tell us is, that if Washington County paid
$30,000 it is very unlikely that Gulf County's effort ,would
come anywhere close to $750,000 to $1.4 million.
I believe that all Gulf County citizens, regardless of where
they live in the county, should be equally represented by all
'members of the board of county commissioners. This, county
has seen more than enough of this single member district
mess. In fact I'm not sure the higher price tag wouldn't be
worth even' penny of its cost to challenge this issue.
.I understand Commissioner Peters' concerns over these.
issues, but Gulf voters have long since proven that race is not
the determining factor in who wins local elections.
When Gulf County voters go to the polls on Nov. 5th I hope
they are not scared away by this highly inflated price tag.
Even if the worst case scenario came into play, the expense
would be spread over several years and could be stopped at
any time. ',
.If we were, to receive a similar ruling to Washington
County, Gulf voters would have an opportunity to decide

We were pretty much unsophisu-

mouths. I reckon we operated-
under the premise that if you did-

you! I know we were young :and
foolish, but, taste was .what -as
important to us.... -
And let me tell you, you could-
n't beat the taste of a cold Coca-

wouldn't drink it alright down. We
wouldn't even tak the bottle open-

We'd choose up sides and play

Celebrate with Us
October 17, 2002
Some 112 million credit union members around the world
will celebrate International Credit Union Day on Thursday,
October 17, 2002. As they do, they will celebrate the
unique service their credit unions provide and the many
ways their families and communities have benefited from
the credit union difference.
Credit Union members enjoy many benefits, including
lower loan rates, better rates on savings, and lower fees.
Plus, credit unions provide excellent service. In the 2002
American Banker/Gallup Consumer Survey, credit unions
once again led the ratings for staff friendliness and courtesy,
speed of loan decisions, deposit rates and improvements
from year-to-year in service quality.
Credit unions are for everyone, but the law places some lim-
its on the people they may serve. A credit union's charter
defines its "field of membership", which could be an
employer, church, school or community. At Emerald
Coast Federal Credit Union we have a communi-
ty charter. This means that if you live, work, worship or
attend school in Gulf County or the City of Mexico Beach
you are eligible for membership!
We invite you to join us as we celebrate the credit union dif-
ference, our proud heritage of building better tomorro\ws,
and the wonderful opportunities credit union membership
has offered for more than 150 years. We will be having
refreshments and prizes available at our offices in Port St.
Joe and Wewahitchka on Thursday, October 17, 2002. We
hope to see you there!

Teachers/District at Impasse Over Salaries and Benefits
by Tim Croft
The ongoing negotiations
between the School Board and
district personnel could be exam-
ined through two different prisms
offering contrasting views.
The negotiations with non-
instructional personnel includ-
ing bus drivers, paraprofession-
als, maintenance staff, etc. are
making steady and generally ami-
cable headway, though they have
yet to dive too deeply into the crit-
ical issue of salaries.
The language for the first-ever
contract between the district and
support personnel is being
methodically chiseled out. section
by section, page by page. With
both sides giving a little and get-
ting a little in return, taking a lit-
However. the teachers and
the district are once again
embroiled in a testy debate over
salaries and benefits, the dispute
again headed for a hearing before
a special master or mediator as
neither side shows any indication
of retrenching dug-jn heels.
The 'two sides of this record
continued to play out last
Wednesday between the Gulf
County Education Association
and district representatives and
will spin again Wednesday at the
School Board offices.
All but salaries and benefits
have taken a back seat in the
talks involving the teachers, the
various sections of the contract
open for rehashing having been
relegated to the background while
the sides tussle over money.
The School Board's argument

unrestnected fund balance over
several years have. district offi-
cials contend, sapped resources.
The School Board's offer of a
2 percent raise above the incre-
mental increase already paid. and
which averages about 1.8 percent
across the salary scale, plus an
additional S25 per month toward
health insurance is a bottom line
The district is already at.its
maximum millage rate. according
lto the Florida Department of Edu-
cation. and there is no more
money available for raises this
'That is where we are at and
that is where we are going to be
regardless (of what. direction we
go)," said Jerry Copeland. consul-
tant to the district on. personnel
"(The Board) wished there,
were more for everybody. And ;
going through another- process
(such as mediation or a special
master) isn't going to change the
amount of money that's there.
The teachers opened discus-
sion on salaries with a proposal
for a 4 percent salan- increase
above the step and an increase in
insurance premiums sufficient to
join the state employees' health
plan. somewhere around 850-S75
more per month.
Teachers received only a step
increase, for which some one-
third' of teachers are ineligible due
to where they are on the salary-
scale, last year.
Copeland urged the teachers
to take the School Board's offer on
the table with the hope that more.
money would be available next
year. adding that to continue the
debate .before a. third party
seemed, to him; "futile." '
However, Judy Campbell.
president of GCEA, replied that
Copeland was singing a familiar '
refrain which teachers had heard
before, albeit out ol different

she said. '\We will reject any
contract that is below (that)."
About the only thing both
sides can agree on in the financial
area is that a one percent salary
increase across the board for all
130-140 teachers. exclusive oof
Insurance contributions, would
cost about S54.000.
"We arc at 4 percent arid we
arc not moving off 4 percent so .we

Stone Crab Season Began Oct. 15
Florida, .the land ,of sun,
beaches, alligators and flamingos
is also famous for stone crab
claws-'a delectable and "ohi so
sweet"' tasting meat. The majonrty'
of Florida stone crab claws are
commercially harvested off the
southern .tip of Florida's
peninsula. from Sarasota, to Ft.
Lauderdale. Stone crab season
opens October 15 and runs
through May 15 each %year.
The beauty of this, prized -
shellfish with its sweet'buttery,
taste is that all you have to do is
bring it home, crack the shell and
serve with melted butter-or if
you insist, another' type sauce.
You can heat the meat,, prior, to ,
serving, but it is not necessary.
It's hard to resist something that
tastes this good and requires 'so
W\\hen crabs are; harvested,'
only the claws, where most of the
meat is located, are removed and
the crab is returned to the water
where the claws regenerate within
twelve months. Commercial
fishermen cook the claws as soon
as they are harvested; hence they .
are always marketed "cooked".
The only thing you need to do
prior to searing is to crack the
shell. You can easily, accomplish
this.by putting the claws inside a
heavy plastic bag and using a
mallet or hammer to crack. Or
you canr hold them in your hand.
and crack 'by hitting with the
backside of a spoon. Any way you
decide to crack the shell, you will
always have a smile on your face
when you. eat stone crab claws.,
: When in season. stone crabs,
can be bought at your local fish
market, supermarket and from
many ,suppliers and fishermen
that sell online. Any m',any
restaurants feature this prized
crab during this time of the year.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, OCT. 17, 2002
Saturday, October 19
of the Undefeated
On Saturday, October. 12. the
undefeated 9-10 year old team
from Chattahoochee invaded'
Shark Stadium looking for a win
over the undefeated Jaguars.
Chattahoochee his, in recent
years, been the dominating team
in the Big Bend League. This is
Port St. Joe's, first year in the
league. This game gave the
Jaguars an opportunity to find
out how good they really are, a
chance to. play the best.
The game started off like all
the games this'year with the PSJ
defense stopping the, opposing
offense cold. Chattahoochee had'
to kick, after three' downs. ,The
Jaguars returned the punt to the
50-yard line. They moved to the
visiting team's 45 in two plays.
Then, Calvin Pryor went .off left
tackle, ran into the secondary
behind strong blocks by the
offensive line, broke a tackle, cut-
to his left and out ran the.
Chattahoochee defenders for the.
On their next possession
Chattahoochee had to kick again
after three downs and Jaguar
offense took over. Chris Cochran
and Pryor ran tough, moving the
ball to the visitor's 30. Then, on
the same play he, ran for the first
touchdown, Pryor broke loose,
again and scored. Cochran took
the pigskin in for the PAT, driving
across' the goal lne with two'
defenders on his back.
of the Week
Chipper Gainey played an
awesome game for the Harold's
Spark Plugs last Saturday. He has
taken on the role of defender even
though teams this age do not have
positions.. He does a great job in
defending the goal and doesn't let
many balls get past him. Keep up
the good iork, Chipper!
Gabrielle' Cohen did a
fantasbtc job for the Phil's Grill
team. She has shown tremendous.
improvement and is always willing
; to get out on the field and help her
teammates. Gabrielle can kick the
ball really hard and doesn't let
many slip past her in the defense
position that she plays. She does-
an excellent job in playing in her
position. Keep on hustling.
Jessica Smith is an all-
around player for the Phils Grill
team. She plays almost" every
position including goalie. She
doesn't let many balIs get past her
while in the goalie position and
will do what it takes to getin front
of the ball. She has also played
forward and defender and hustles
at whatever position she has.
Great job. Jessica!
There were'two players, of the'
.week for the Phil's Grill team due
to Taunton's Trusses teams game
being cancelled .due to inclement
'Chattahoochee couldn't move
the ball at all, having to kick on
their next two possessions. The*
second kick got past Jaguar
defenders and rolled all the way to
the Jaguar 25. Willie Quinn
picked it up, faked to his right,
cut to the left sideline and turned
-on the speed. Touchdown Port St.
Joe. The half ended with the score
20 to 0.
A Big Bend League rule'
requires that when 'a team is
ahead by 18 or more points they
must take out all starters
possible. As a result, in the
second half the Jaguar mini-
backfield, consisting of Anton
Garland and Jayjen Pittman, took
over. They more than held their
own against the much bigger boys
from Chattahoochee. Jaguar
offense scored, once more in the
second half when' Willie Quinn
went 75 yards on:a tight end
Led by aAn interior line
including Walter Bowers', Thomas
Sims, Chance Brewer, Tommy.
Hill, Cody Robinson and Luke
Linton' the defense gave up only
two first downs all day. ,One wvas
on a pass interference call. Ends
f. Steven Denton and Shanie Knox
made it impossible for the speedy
Chattahoochee backs to get to the
outside. Corner backs Willie'
Quinn.'Roman Quinn and Nathan
Tarantino did, not allow'
Chattahoochee to complete a
Pass. Line backers Cochran and
Raheen Clemons and safety Pryor
made big hits time after time.

This old growth log, known
locally as dead head cypress. was
pulled from the river bottom.
Other areas often refer to it as
"tank" or 'tank stock" cypress.
This particular log was harvested

saw which suggests it was cut in
the early daVs of logging in the
area, possibly the late 1800's.
During this time period logs %\ere

logs from a raft. and at times
entire rafts, would be lost and

decades, the sap would rot away

Importance of Emergency Fund
By: Andy Wilkinson
Recent layoffs have left thou-
sands of workers wondering if
they'll have a job tomorrow. And
while having to worry about lay-
offs is unpleasant, losing your job
without being prepared can be
The best strategy' to avoid
being. blindsided by a layoff is
preparation. By setting up an
emergency fun= you can ease the'
pain and financial burden that.
comes with losing, your job.
Building a sufficient emergency
fund requires t.'imne and discipline,
but in the long run,, it can help
tuin. a layoff into a positive by,
providing you with enough time to
explore new career opportunities.
The first step in setting up an
emergency fund is determining
how much money you'll need. In
- most cases, three to six months of
living expenses is an excellent
gbal. If you have few debts and
very marketable employment
skills, your requirements may be
less, however, any extra savings
will provide, you with peace of
mind in troubling times. To accu-
rately calculate your require-
'ments; take a'complete inventory
of monthly expenses, .including
rent or mortgage, car payments.,
groceries, credit eai d pa-men ts.-
utility' and telephone bills. insur-

SHere is some information that

If 50cc or less, these vehicles
are not motorcycles by driver's
license law definition, so a motor-

However. to operate thdm on the

at least 16 years old and hold .at

Once you have established a
savings goal, contact your finan-
cial advisor to set up a separate
emergency account. Money in this
account should be safe and read-
ily accessible. A money market
account, which pays higher inter-
est than a savings account, is
often a good choice.
To help maintain a disci-
plined schedule that will allow
you to reach your goal, consider
setting up an automatic savings
plan that will deduct money from
either your paycheck or checking
account each. month. With this:
approach, you're less likely to
stray from your plan and can eas-
ily stop contributions once you
have saved enough money.
After you build a sufficient
financial cushion, this account
should be .considered off limits
and for emergencies only. When
times are good, resist the tempta-
tion to use this money to take the
vacation of your dreams or buy a
new car because tapping.into this
account fori anything but an
emergency defeats its purpose.
In addition to setting up an
emergency fund. another step
that will help prepare for an unex-
pected financial loss such :as a
' layoff, is cutting debt. By paying
off as much debt as possible while
you are employed and can afford
tion for grand theft.

to, you will dramatically improve
your financial situation should
you find yourself out of work. To
help get control of your debt, cut
back on lifestyle expenses you
could do without such as enter-
tainment, dining out, and unnec-
essary clothing expenses ..and, use
this savings to pay off outstand-
ing loans and bills.
Regardless of where you work
or how long you've been there.
there is always the potential for a
layoff. By creating an emergency
fund and paying off debt you can'
avoid having to rely on credit
cards and your retirement say-
ings, two last resort options with
serious financial consequences.
And while it is never too late to
begin building ani' emergency fund
and reducing debt, those who get
started early, are best prepared.

avoid being blindsided by a layoff,
