Stone Container Corporation:
and the St. Joe Company are
seeking to have the old paper mill
site (owned by Stone Container)
and its adjoining former waste
water treatment impoundment
area (owned by the St. Joe
-Company) placed in the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection's (FDEP) Brownfields
Redevelopment Program.
According to an FDEP release
outlining "brownflelds", its: pur-
pose is to coordinate the roles and-
responsibilities, of DEP and EPA,
with respect to cleanup of haz-
ardous substances conducted
under,, .the authority of ,the
Comprehensive Environmental,
Response Compensation' and,
Liability Act of 1980 and Florida's.
Brownfields Redevelopment Act..
This effort would focus the use of
brovwnfields designation to pro-
% -ide a significant benefit both to
the environment and to local com-
munities.
The overall goal bf this agree-
ment would be to encourage the
reuse of brownfields designated
sites, and to protect public health
and the environment of the -sur-,
rounding communities by expe- '
editing the assessment and
cleanup of these properties.

Hi-Tech Auditorium Brings New State-of-


the-Art Learning Opportunities to PSJES


by Tim Croft The elementan'ry school just put
As Pnncipal Tim Wilder puts the finishing flourishes on Phase II
it;, Carmike Theaters has nothing of its refurbishing of the auditori-
on Port St. Joe Elementary. um, a'facelift that has produced an


PSJ Auditorium: Tim Wilder mans the control panel for the sights
and sounds in the newly renovated Port St. Joe Elementary School
'auditorium.


auditorium worthy' of any theater
chain.,
From its padded chairs, plush,
carpeting and state-of-the-art
audio/visual system, the PSJ
Elementary auditorium is unlike
anything found in the district, or
for that matter many surrounding
Districts.
"It's really the only one in the
county set up like this," Wilder'
said. "Theite are no auditoriums.
and you know there are no the-
aters.
"This is like a vision I had.
When I came in here in the. 2000
school year and saw what we had,
and I went to school here, and the
potential." .
What Wilder saw at the time
was a facility with wooden seats
dating to the 1950s, a sloping bare'
concrete floor more akin to a skat-
ing rink with all the dust and sand
and a space that swallowed up the
sound 'from the stage like a black
hole engulfs all surrounding light..
So he set to work, using capi-
tal outlay and half-cent sales tax
dollars to transform the facility.
Those funds, which each
school receives, can only be used
for infrastructure, desks, chairs,
etc., rather than textbooks or other
programs. to improve learning.
"We had a new school back
there," Wilder said pointing to the
fairly new classroom wing in' the
rear of the school, "so we were
lucky. The potential (for the audi-
torium) has always 'been there. It's


the only school auditorium, .and
we have it. We are so lucky, people
don't realize it."
Phase One of'the revitalization
included new chairs the auditori-
um seats 325 and carpeting. '
Teachers had iriput as to 'the
,,Ftyle and 'colors of both seats and
carpet.
Ceiling fans were removed and
the holes filled in such a way that
it appears that woodworking
artists had designed the ceiling.
'The district maintenance peo-
ple did that, and all of the prep
work," Wilder said. 'They are tal-
ented, talented-people."
The second phase, completed
just a few weeks ago included a
.new screen for movies and the like,,
a sound system that would make a
rock star drool and other electron-
ic gizmos that would keep a techie
up nights.
There is cable TV, DVD, VCR,
CDs, wireless microphone system,
sound board and speaker system.
"It's just endless, the things we
can do," Wilder said. "We are going
to do some first class stuff.
"If you've got kids who are
happy, who are glad to be here,
who have some pride in their
school, they are happy kids. I
wanted them to take pride in
where they are. We are just proud
we can do that for the kids."
All for about $80,000, most of
the school's capital outlay dollars.

e ultimate incentive of the
field program is for the

process includes the estab-

Comm. Chairman Jerry Barnes, right, presents a lifetime
achievement award to Dr. Robert King, DDS, as County Health
Director Doug Kent looks on.


:Doug Kent, Gulf County,
Health 'Director, gave a similar
award to long-time local dentist
Dr. Robert King.
Kent presented Dr. King with,
a plaque noting his lifetime ofser-
vice to the' community. He
explained 'that King came to this
community in 1948 and immedi-
ately began what has been a life-
time of service to his community.
Dr. King has been very active:
in service work with : the Boy,
Scouts and served side by side
with former Scoutmaster John
Simpson. He is also a strong
.advocate of education and for 23
years, served on the Gulf Coast,
Community College Board.
Throughout his 54 years .of
dentistry he has offered his 'ser-
vices at a low cost and oftentimes
Switch no compensation to those
with a need. ',
Kent pointed out that to this
day'. Dr. King still offers free
screening for children attending
the Head Start Program and con-
tinues to help .those with financial
difficulties. Kent also pointed but
that at the .age of 78 Dr. King con-
tinues to serve his community
through several service involve-
ments.
One sentence of the state-
'.ment read' by Kent states, "He
loves his family, community and
many friends."
Piefsi at WindMark,
As the board meeting contin-
ued one item of business was a


question by- Marilyn Blackwell
concerning the piers at WindMark
and them obstructing walkways
along the beachfront.
Commissioner Carl Fox told
Blackwell that the board had
reached an agreement with St.
Joe Company to leave the piers as
they are provided the public can
have access to the piers.
Furthermore. he pointed ut that
if that access is denied in, the
future then the piers would have
to be reworked.
"I think it's. a great trade-off if
the public can use the docks," Fox
said.
Jail Roof
Commissioners have already
agreed to go out for bids to take
care of some serious roof leak
problems 'at. the G.C. Sheriffs
..Office. Chief' Administrator Don '
Butler suggested the board step
up its efforts and consider making
this an emergency so as to expe-
dite the process.
Butler explained that the last
two rains have revealed even
worse leaks. He suggested the
board go out for emergency quotes
which should move. the time line
up approximately three weeks to
begin repairs on the roof. The
board agreed with Butler's recom-
mendation.

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY n;..-1--- D""-t- i Ies by iKesley iColbert


EDITORIAL COMMvENTARY kH bunker Down W ith Ke by Kesley Colbert
if" COLUMN


W-RITTEN BY
WILLIE RAMSEY, EDITOR





Sing It Again, Sam!

I've gotten so many comments on last week's editorial I had to go'
back and read it again myself just to be sure I really wrote it.
I hope most of you remember that it was about at-large voting I
and the referendum Gulf voters will have placed before them on the enou
Nbv. 5th General Election ballot. to S
Basically, Gulf County commissioners agreed 4-1 (with at th
Commissioner Peters opposing) to place the choice to challenge at- exist
large versus single member district voting before county voters again Cou
to see if they really want the board to continue a legal challenge to anma
return to at-large voting. Sout
Voters had already overwhelmingly passed a very similar referen-
dum a few years back but this one is .a bit different because county place
commissioners are asking voters if they should expend between I
$750,000 and $1.4 million to challenge the Federal consent decree. off.'
Making a long story short, Washington County just recently had mye i
an 'almost identical consent decree overturned. Furthermore, the Ferli
judge not only ruled in favor of Washington County but called for the about
voters of Washington County to decide by popular vote whether they Davi
want to remain under single member jurisdiction or return to at-large FCon
voting. ; '
How much did all of this cost??? turn
According to Clerk of the Circuit Court in Washington County .,as
Linda Cook, just $30,000.
$30,000 is just a little bit less than the $750,000 to $1.4 million
figure Gulf voters will see on the ballot. True enough, in a worst-case
scenario-appealed all the way to the Supreme Court-it could cost a
considerable amount of money, but it's highly unlikely that Gull
County would spend anywhere close to this amount.
The real question for voters should be- Do we want to return to
at-large voting? If the answer is "yes". vote for the referendum and
let's follow Washington County's example. Gulf voters have already
expressed their desire to return to at-large voting. Hopefully, the
wording of this referendum will not confuse the issue.
When in Doubt, Vote "NO"!
Billy Joe Rish spoke to members of the Port St. Joe Kiwanis Club
at noon Tuesday about the Constitutional Amendments appearing on
the General Election ballot.
Several weeks ago I wrote an editorial basically stating that we
don't need to make changes to the Constitution to handle the vast
majority of questions that are being addressed through this process.
Billy Joe had just the right answer on how to deal with amend-
Sment quesuons: "When in doubt. vote NO!"
There are normally a couple of exceptions to this rule, but for the
most part I'm in full agreement with Billy Joe.
Amendment I and 2 are ones I can find favor with. #I 1 would
change the wording of Florida's Constitution to be more in tune with
the U.S. Constitution concerning cruel and unusual punishment.
Amendment number 2 requires that a financial impact statement
be required before aly amendment change can be placed on the bal-
lot. This one sounds like a really good idea. Maybe if voters know how
many of their tax dollars it's going to take. they will stop and think
twice before they vote in favor of something that sounds like a really
good idea on the surface.
Any way you slice it, all the money to fund these great ideas ulti-
mately comes (directly or indirectly) from the pockets of taxpayers.
I've got to vote NO on all the rest of those amendments. Some of
them seem like really good ideas, but not knowing how much it will
cost and who it might impact, NO is the word. I believe our state leg-
islative representatives are better equipped to deal with these matters
during legislative sessions, after all that's what we elected them for.
We've got more than enough of these unfunded mandates floating
around.
Yes, there is an amendment # 10 which talks about pregnant pigs.
Lord help, I hope Florida is not the first state in the nation to give
constitutional protection to pigs. There's no telling where this could
take us if voters support this amendment.
'Next thing you know some of those critters will have more rights
than we do... or do they already?
SI think Billy Joe made a good point. "When in doubt vote NO!"
I'll go one step further and say when you're not sure whether you
are-in .doubt or not, vote NO. There's a good possibility that the rea-
son the matter is before voters through a Constitutional amendment
is'because our elected officials have already said NO. 1


If You Can't Beat 'em.....


w^


don't reckon I get out
.gh.
took a business trip recently.
outh'Florida and was amazed
te number of cell phones in,
ence in that part of the world.'
rse, to tell you the truth, I was
sed at a lot of things I saw in
h Florida...
But we'll leave that to another
e' another time .
I didn't notice te phones right
I was driving along, minding
own business.'listening to a
n Husky tape and thinking
it that,'Christmas me and
d Mark got those new Western
rs... This, big Lincoln-
inental cuts across in front of
nd near 'bout runs me off the.
pike! It happened so fast and I
so busy hitting my brakes and


grabbing the -"'r-ing wheel I did-
n't get a look at the cuipnt.
I kicked my 1989 Chew
Silverado into overdrive. I'll catch
this guy at the next toll booth and.
if he doesn't look too big. I'll give
him a piece of my mind!
Le.t me tell you something else
about South Florida-they've. got a
pay station every ten miles! It did-
n't take long. As the Lincoln
slowed to pay the tribute .i pulled
along side. It was a fourteen year'
old girl with a cell phone glued to
her earl
I waved and blew the horn.
Bless her heart.'I felt I should cau-
tion her about the way she was
driving, slow her down a mite.
Maybe save her life... .or mine!. ,
She didn't see or hear me. She,,
was talking ninety mile an hour
and was completely oblivious to
my very existenrce. 'I eased up to
the 'window and thought. 0of
explaining this potential, danger to
the man taking my seventy-five
cents but as he turned, to hand me
my change-he had a cell phone
stuck to hi, ear!


You don't suppose he was talk-
ing to the girl in the Lincoln?
I turned Ferlin down just a tad
and begin to watch the cars
whizzing by. I'm telling you three
out ol four drawers had a cell phone
in their hand' I slowed even more.
This could get someone killed out
here!
And there I got to wondering
who all these, people were talking
to. What kind, of ,information was
so important that you had to "get
it"' on the move at eighty miles an
-hour!. There must be a catastrophe
a minute, in.outh Florida!
I don't 'believe I could live like
that.': .
I got to the hotel to check in,
and there, were people, in line in
front, of me talking on cell phones,
while they waited to be processed.'
Amazing! And, the folks that'
weren't actively engaged in a
phone .conversation had cell
phones attached to their belts. I
noticed they kept one hand free at
all times in case ,they got an
incoming call.
I felt naked.


The guy behind me kept look-
ing at me like where's tour phone?
Did you leave it in the car" Don't tell
me you onhj have one phone and,
your u'ie has it'
I got my key and slipped up to
my room as quietly and as unob-
trusi\el' as possible.
Not fifteen minutes into my.
meeting the next morning--and
right in, the middle 'of the.preseri-
ters first big point--a cell phone
rang. Forty-two people reached for
their receivers! i
S I was standing in line at
Subway trying to decide if Il wanted
whole wheat or Italian Parmesan
bread for lunch when my thoughts
were interru pted by the extra loud,
one-sided conversation directly
behind me. I didn't .have to turn
around. I'm sure it was an "emer-.
gency" call /from a very .close
friend.... "Well, i don't know if I'can
,go or not. Short pause., "I guess ;!
could go." Short pause. "Well. I
don't know." Pause. "1 could go -.

part, of Lisa's life without her

their three young children-one
of which was born following the
events of 9-11. .,

S TIjE BEAMER'S HAD been :
married for only eight years
prior to'hissacrifice.
. fhe assumption is that
Flight. 93, bound for,. San--
Francisco, out of Newark,' New
Jersey, that fateful morning,
was destined to be crashed into
the .White House, or the U.'S.
Capitol building, but, was 'inter-
rupted in its flight by a group of


passengers, ,headed by Todd
Beamer.
The plane crashedd in a
deserted field in Pennsylvania. a,
field which was a reclaimed
strip mine. .
There was nothing left of the
airplane or the passengers.
As Lisa Beamer wrote'in'her
'book on an airline-sponsored'
,trip to the site for survivors Of
the victims :
"I didn t see a single trace, of: -
. the airplane, ..anywhere.. The
-authorities said they had found
a few engine parts, one large'
piece in a pond about a half mile
away, and some small fragments,
about the size of a notebook."
Everything else had been
totally; disintegrated; including
the victims.. '

I. WON'T LEAD you wrong;
the.book is a "teal-jerker" in
spots. But 'you get the notion
that ,Lisa's' strong Christian
faith is seeing her through the
situation.


The book .tells you, in: no
uncertain terms,' the feelings of
those who lost loved ones in the
attacks.
It brings home the feelings
of the survivors more graphical-
lv than you have probably ever
seen, or read, before.
it's a tragedy, reading about '
young lives experiencing such ,
difficulties, as they experience-"
in'this book.'But the book is a
true depiction of the events, as,
lived by victims of the unspeak- '
able acts of 9-11. .
.On the fly jacket are printed,
the words, "Find Hope, Find
Inspiration, Find Strength."
If you don't find all three in
this book, you won't find it!

I DON'T KNOW WHERE Lisa
received the strength or forti-'
tude to put some of the revela-
,tions in words, but she doesn't
pull any punches.
Todd Beamer was a budding
young businessman, who
worked for the Oracle corpora-


tion. He travelled weekly for his
firm, and was on a business trip
at the time of his death.
He had worked hard to get
educated and to advance in his
job. He was on the ivay up, when.,
it was all snatched from him.

good life in his back pocket and'
the pocket was buttoned up! :

you, you can riever plan ahead'
with certainty,.so you had better
do a good bit of playing along

I wish I had read this book
several years ago. I would--
maybe-have lived my life differs'
ently. I would have certainly;

Editor's note: With election day
looming Nov. 5,' we take a look this
week at the Mexico Beach munici-
pal elections. Next week we'll
examine two county races on the
ballot, School Board District 2 and
County Commission District 2.
by Tim Croft
The three-person battle to
become the next mayor and occu-
pant of the Group 1 seat on the
Mexico Beach City Council was
engaged long before qualifying
ended.
SWith newspaper ads, rumors
and comments at council meet-
ings, the opponents of Mayor
Kathy Kingsland and their sup-
porters have fired salvo after salvo.
And regardless of where one
stands on .the issues, Kingsland
*must be credited with declining to
sling mud regardless of how much
fire has rained down on her.
That said, what is .evident is
. that there are clear contrasts
: beteen the three candidates,
r"hich include Kingsland. David
S Miller and Tollie Mullins.
-. All three have served at one,
S tine or another on the city council::
Mullins, who was also city adrmn-,
istrator. during the 1970s. Miller'

Kingsland will stand on her
record of those two years, be it
bringing clarity to the budget,
infrastructure improvements,
encouraging more citizen involve-
ment in government or improving'
the collaborative process, the
"teamwork," on the council.
She is a strong advocate of the
vision plan, a draft ,of which
should be brought forward within
a month or so.
thaThere is nothing in that plan
that is etched in stone," Kingsland
said. "The vision is a plan for your
future.
"What's important to me is
having citizens involved in their
city."
The plan, she added, will help
the city achieve a balance as
inevitable progress knocks at the
city's door.

Kingsland, among a host of.
accomplishments, highlights such'
things 'as the Citizen Advisory Task
Force and Tom's Sawyer Days as
opportunities for the folks of
Mexico Beach to proactively affect,
their city.
She defends -city staff against

the Duren property was the most

use of the property.
And she takes particular pride,
in applying her auditing and man-,
agement background to the bud-

New Christian
Radio Station

Through the efforts of some
local Christians and the
cooperation of Grace Baptist
Church, Port St. Joe now has a
non-commercial, all Christian
radio station, WGBW, at 88.5 on
your FM radio dial. Broadcasting
in stereo 24 hours a day, it carries
one of: the few LP/FM radio

mission in an effort to supply
local coverage to certain
communities. Only religious and
educational organizations could
apply ', in the Avindow of
opportunity" in the Spring: of
2001.
The construction permit-was
granted by the FCC, and the
station is now on the air as an

Network of Charlotte, ,NC. As an
affiliate of BBN, WGBW receives
the programming via satellite and
re-transmits it from a 100-watt
transmitter at 88.5 MHz FM

indicated that~it, can be received
from Cape San Bias through
Mexico Beach on US 98 and
through White City on Hthvi.ay

Lupus: Gains
Made Against
Baffling Disease,
During. Lupus Awareness
Month, the Alliance for Lupus
.Research (ALR) urges' men and,
women to learn more about-the
puzzling disease. -.
Lupus is an elusive, hard-to-
diagnose condition. Some people
suffer for years before they even
rigow what they have.
-."'w,.4t-L.-consiulered .an--.auitoim-
S mune disease-and more.than 90
percent of lupus patients are
women. Over the past four
decades the incidence of lupus
has tripled. The Alliance has
assembled top-notch researchers
to learn why the body's immune
system sometimes attacks its own
organs and tissues.
S"We need to understand what
triggers lupus' onset, and how to
best treat its symptoms," says
,John H. Kippel,; M.D., ALR's sci-
entific director. "Although lupus
can be fatal, symptoms can be
controlled and most patients lead.
Active lives. Preventing complica-
tions, however, requires early
detection and diagnosis."
Common Asymptoms include
hchy or swollen joints: prolonged
pr extreme fatigue; 'frequent
fevers; anemia; kidney or neuro-
logic disease; chest pains with
deep breathing: rashes; sun sen-
sitivity and mouth ulcers.

points in a given month and don't
act out earn the chance to attend a
movie on the last Frinday ,'of the
month.
The first will be the, coming,
attraction at the end of this month.
Wilder said the number of
noses stuck in books is evidence
that the vision can translate into
reality. ,
When you see the AR points,
when you see kids reading at or
above their grade level, when you
have them going home and show-'
ing off to Mom and Dad what
they've done," 'Wilder said. "They
are glad to say this is their school,
that this. is their auditorium.
"Kids are acting better, behav-
ing better now. They are reading
just so they can get that chance."
There is more to come.: A third
phase will include small items
such as .refurbished doors and
.curtains .maybe .some moredtech- i-
nology.
And Wilder envisions more
thani just school events in this the-
ater-by-the-bay.
Choirs, church cantatas and
band performances could be
accommodated. Community and
civic organizations could hold
meetings, or celebrations in the
facility. '- :i -

Lighthouse Keepers' Restoration Receives Donations
The effort to rehabilitate one of the keepers' quarters at the Cape San Bias lighthouse got a boost last
week from two sources. Above, local historian and writer Herman Jones and Marie Steele-RomaneUi of
the St. Joe Wildlife Sanctuary give Betty McNeill, Charlotte Pierce and Danny Raffield of the St. Joseph
Historical Society a check for $306, representing the money collected on tours Jones led of the light-
house grounds during the recent Birding and Wildflower Festival. Below, County Commissioner Nathan
Peters gives the Historical Society trio a check for $500 coming from Peters' special category funds. The
two monetary gifts will be matched by the Northwest Florida Improvement Foundation, making the dona-
tions worth more than $1,600. The NWFIF will match any funds the Historical Society can raise for the
keepers' quarters between now and the first of the year.

duty" to try and unseat Kingsland
to address questionable decisions
made the past two years.
He said the sale of the Duren
property was premature and that
the proceeds from the sale are
being used inappropriately to bal-
ance two budgets.
Kingsland said the money
equal to the sale price has been
put in an interest-bearing account
.while the profits are to be used for
various projects, including the
extension of the pier and improve-
ments to the civic center.
Miller is also an opponent of
the vision plan.
'"There should have been a ref-
erendum on that and instead we
got it shoved down 'our. throats,"
Miller said. "The vision of the city
isn't in a plan, it's in the beach, the
canal. That makes the city
unique."
'FHe said. the $50,000 .spent on'
the vision plan would have been
better served in other areas of the
budget.
Miller, who is semi-retired
after a long career as a business-
man, said he has no business ties
in the city and would maintain reg-
ular hours at City Hall and be
Accessible to the citizens.
'Although he hinted at changes
at City Hall, Miller.declined to pro-
vide specifics.
"The basic thing is fairness
and equity;" Miller said.
Saying the current council is'
"practicing deception,"" Miller said'
he :would insist on more open
meetings and. bringing issues to
the people "to decide on it."
"A l6t of people have the atti-,
tilde that goiiig .. to the council
meetings is not going to change
the council's attitude." Miller said.'
"That's not the way it should be."
SMiller is another critic of the,
decision to refurbish an old build-
ing for a new City Hall, saying the
city' "could have had a whole new'
building" for what was spent.
S'Mullins' platform is a simple
seven-point document that high-
lights openness in gove r n ment,fis-
cald responsibility, stabilization of
taxes and'water rates and, keeping
citizens'as the No. 1 priority.
He said he will not be a party,
to: -special interests and ivould
pledge to keep the canal open, the
latter a' stand in unison with'.his
opponents.
As a retired military officer, he
would keep full-time office hours
to ensure accessibility.

S The free trees are part of the
nonprofit foundation's Trees for

paign," Mullins said.
He called the vision plan a
"pipe dream, unaffordable for
Mexico Beach."
He has a plan for keeping the
canal open by capturing the sand
while it's moving and before it clos-
es the canal, reducing costs.
And he said he is committed to
getting the city out of debt, without
raising taxes, and ensuring the
city is "no longer living beyond its
means."
Primarily, Mullins said, his
strengths lie in being "an expert at
listening" and a "champion for the
people:"

Mexico Beach Group 2
; In this campaign season,
Christine Brinkmeier and incum-
bent Carolyn Metcalf have navigat-
ed, largely smooth waters in their
race for the Group 2 seat on the
Mexico Beach City Council.
Neither has. anything much
negative to say about the other
and though they come at a variety
of issues, ranging from growth to
the budget. to the operations at
City Hall, from contrasting direc-
tions, the two candidates have
given their race a decidedly apolit-
ical tone.
In fact, the two agree in sever-
al areas: both believe the stormwa-
ter and road paving projects 'were
necessary enhancements, both
hope that the city will one. day be
able to afford constructing a new
community center and each
believes the beach part of the city's
riame as the essential ingredient
for the future.
But it would be' a mighty bor-
ing campaign without some differ--
ences and there are some in evi-
'dence.
Brinkmeier's campaign is cen-
tered around the slogan, "Save
Our Beach." which has in the past
few months been hijacked by oth-
ers as a platform for caustic
attacks against the sitting admin-
istration.
My major issue is that major
growth should be decided by the,
people, not five. people sitting
behind a table." Brinkmeier said.
"I'm not opposed to growth. I'm
opposed to out-of-contrpl growth."
Bnrnkmeier believes the vision
plan .undertaken by the city to be
an entry toward 'such growth, a
method of turning the sleepy fish-
ing and retirement. hamlet into
another Panama City Beach ,or
'Seaside, a themed attraction.
'"It would head us in the direc-,
tioin. of being taller and bigger."
Brinkmeier asserted. 'I want to
keep this the quiet alternative."
NMetcalf, while acknowledging'
that some aspects of the-vision are
"a little too much," noted that the
vision is just that a vision, not' a
mandate.
She said the plan will prove a
*, *'-' '- ]


i


useful tool to access funding for
needed projects and will help city
leaders balance on the tightrope
between growth and "keeping the
essence of the city."
'The essence of the city is not
going to change," Metcalf said.
Brinkmeier said City Hall is
"disorganized" and unable to pro-
vide citizens with the proper
answers to questions.
She also said the city spends
too much in some areas, highlight-
ing the police budget as one such
area, another being the money
spent to create a new City Hall
from an old building.
"'I'm.not here to attack the city,
there just should be some,
changes," Brinkmeier said. "I truly.
believe (city leaders) believe they
are running things right, I just
don't believe they are making the
right decisions for the citizens."
Brinkmeier also opposed the
selling of the Duren property, at
least until after the completion of
the vision plan.
Metcalf. however;, believes
things have turned, the' corner
since she joined the council along
with David Thompson and Mayor
Kathy Kingsland
in addition to improvements to
infrastructure, Metcalf pointed to,
better communications between
the council and citizens.
Metcalf noted that citizen's
comments have been moved to the'
front of council meetings. the more
collaborative tone of council meet-
ings, a quarterly newsletter and a
website which should soon be
operational.
"We've' also gotten ,the budget
to where you can understand
what's going on," Metcalf said. "We
are required to- b audited every
year. Last year our audit was, good
and we addressed many problems
from the audit of the \'ear before."
She said she supported the
-selling of the Duren property and
the renovation of an old building
for City Hall, adding that building
a new CityHall., 'could have cost
five times as minuch." .
The city is moving forward
with addressing issues in the
comp plan and LDR ard w ill elicit
citizen comments wherever p6ssi-
ble in' the process.
The emphasis on safety -
training first responders, hiring an
EMIT makes the Public Safety
budget worth every penny that
goes into it.
Growth is inevitable, Metcalf
noted, but managing that growth,
with the help of the vision plan, is
doable under the current leader-
ship structure.
The realignment of U.S. 98, ,on
which much of the vision plan is
based. can only help the effort.
As. long as we have 18-wheel-
ers and this major thoroughfare
for tourists, once, that is gone we
will be able to back up a little and
go at a more small-to'wn pace,"'
Metcalf said. 'The marketing of the
city will change. It will become

more of a retreat-type place
instead of a place you stop at on
your way to somewhere else."
Mexico Beach Group 3
Mel Ashcraft's challenge to
incumbent David Thompson for
the Group 3 seat on the Mexico
Beach City Council is encom-
passed in the city comp plan.
Within the comp plan and land
development regulations lies the
springboard for Ashcraft's cam-
paign.
S In his view, the comp plan and
LDR are under siege, the multi-
family dwellings going up on the
west end of the beach the prime
example.
A member of the council as
well as the city Planning and
Zoning Board for eight years in the
early `1990s, Ashcraft wants to
retfirn to the council to maintain
thle inteernt of the comp plan and
LDR.
"(The' Council) has totally
ignored our comp plan and LDR
and those are the laws of our
land," Ashcraft said. "They are not
enforcing them." ,
It is the crux of Ashcraft's
campaign.
While he .also questions how-
thl city budget is beino managed
and is troubled by the dyn-amics
between the council and city staff,
particularly the city administrator,
Ashcraft's main plank is saving the
comp plan and LDR.
"I don't like the direction
things are going,' Ashcraft said. "I.
think too much is controlled by
special interests."
However, Thompson believes
his opponent's efforts misguided.
The comp plan. 'and LDR,
Thompson noted, .do not have
restrictions on building densities
on lands zoned .General
Commercial and Tourist
Commercial, the focus .of
Ashcraft's concerns about the 'west
end of the beach.
The council is working to close
that loophole, Thompson said.
encouraging public comment while
the .Planning and Zoning Board
drafts a recommendation to bnng
before the council and the voters. ;:
"All we are looking at is con-
trolling the density -in General
Commercial ,,and -Tourist
Commercial,", Thompson said,
adding that he can't quite make
sense of his opponent's position.
Thompson believes the city is
headed in precisely the right direc-
tion, a path taken during the past
two years since he joined the coun-
cil. : '" .. "
He points to the nearly com-,
pleted paving of the city streets
and business center, the lowering,
of the-inillage rate each of the p,.A"

two years and the work of the
council bringing the budget 'under
control and addressing concerns
raised by past state audits.
"We're in good shape,"
Thompson said of the city's books.
Thompson is a strong support-
er of the vision plan, which is near
completion, though Ashcraft said
it is a needless document since the
city already had a vision plan, the
comp plan and LDR adopted a lit-
tle more than a decade ago,.
Thompson said communica-
tions between city government and,
the citizens are steadily improving
and that city staff is more, profes-
sional and able than under previ-
ous adrrunistrations.
Ashcraft, as with other chal-
lengers in the Mexico Beach elec-


tions has made the city staff, par-
ticularly administrator Paul
Sabiston; an issue.
The city is moving forward
with careful probity, according to
Thompson, and he's looking for
another two years to continue the
work.
"I feel like I need to support
our mayor (Kathy Kingsland) and
the council that's there now,"
Thompson said. "When we get the
things we set out to do done, for
instance the pier extension and
the vision plan, then I'll feel free to
leave.
"Progress is progress, and con-
trol is exactly what this, city is
going to see. Look around you and
see where the city is at, what we
are doing."

Sharks Blowout Carrabelle


To Pick Up First District Win


Tallahassee Democrat sports-
writer Brian McLaughlin lit a fire
under the Port St. Joe Sharks,
when. he predicted in Friday's
edition the Sharks would lose to
Carrabelle 16-13. The Sharks
played with a lot of emotion for
the first time this season, racing
out to a 34-0 lead in .the first
quarter, before cruising to a 54-0
District 2-A win.
The.Panthers opted to put the
mercy rule into effect midway
through the second quarter,
running the clock continuously
for the remainder of the game..
"It felt good to finally get a
win," said head coach John
Palmer. 'We still had too many
*fumbles and turnovers, which we
have, to cut down on in order to
keep winning."
Carrabelle took the opening
kick-off of the game, and were
quickly forced to punt by: the


Sharks' defense. Brandon "Pooh
Bear" Thomas blocked the
.Panthers' punt attempt, and
Randall Johnson scooped up the
loose ball and returned it 29
yards to give the -Sharks a 6-0
lead with 10:00 left in the first
quarter.
On the first play of the
Panthers' ensuing possession,
safety Raye Bailey intercepted a
pass from Larry Hadsock to set
up the Sharks' next score.
Randall Johnson took the
hand-off on, the first play from
scrimmage, and raced 77 yards
down the sideline for his second
touchdown of the night. Bailey
rolled out to his right and
completed a three yard pass to
Brad .Ray for the two-point
conversion, giving the Sharks a
14-0 lead with 9:25 remaining in
the first quarter.
After a Carrabelle punt, the


Brandon "Pooh Bear" Thomas (5) crosses the goal line on a 15
yard touchdown run in the third quarter.


Sharks again struck on their first
offensive play from scrimmage.
Quarterback Kenny McFarland,
dumped a pass out to Bailey in
the flats, who scampered down'
the sideline for a 75 yard
touchdown. Stephen Gaddis
added, the extra point for a 21-0
Port St. Joe lead with 5:41 left in
the quarter.
'On the' second play of the,
Panthers'. next possession,
Randall Johnson grabbed another
loose ball, a fumble by Carrabelle
running back Thomas Melton,
and returned it 29 yards for his
third touchdown of the night to
give the Sharks a 27-0 lead with
4:26 left in the first quarter.
On the first play of Carra-
belle's ensuing possession, Terr-
ence Chambers intercepted a
pass and returned it 30 'yards to,
'the Panthers' 15 yard line to set'
up Port St. Joe's final touchdown
of the quarter.
Brad Ray took an inside
hand-off on the first play from'
scrimmage,, and reeled off 14,
yards, giving the Sharks a 'first
and goal. from the one yard line.
On the. next play, Ray bulled in
from one yard out to cap- off the
drive. Gaddis added the point
after touchdown to give the.
Sharks a 34-0 lead with 3':32
remaining fri the first quarter.
The Sharks threatened to,
scored on their next two poss-
essions., They drove down to the
Panthers' 15 yard line, before
fumbling a snap over to
Carrabelle on second down and
eight; then missed a 39 yard field
goal attempt on their next
possession.
Port St. Joe extended it's lead
to 40-0 on their last possession of
the half. The Sharks drove 63
y,,rds in two running .plays- by,
Dohn'son. Randall picked up four
yards on his first carry, then
reeled off 59 yards on. his


Terrance Chambers (3) return
second carry 'for his fourth
Touchdown of the half. '
The Sharks took the opening
kick-off of the second half, and
marched 61 yards in five plays.
.Vic Hamilton reeled off 28 yards
.on the first play from scrimmage.
Brandon Thomas then picked up
20 yards on the following play,
and capped off, the drive three
plays later with a 15 yard
touchdown ruh. Gaddis point
after touchdown gave the Sharks
a 47-0 lead with 8:30 left in the
third quarter.
Nick Reynolds intercepted a
pass midway through the fourth
quarter to set up the Sharks' final
touchdown of the night. Brad Ray
took an. inside hand-off on the
first play from scrimmage, and
reeled off 33 yards for his second
touchdown of the night. Gaddis
added the extra point to give Port
St. Joe a 54-0 lead with- 6:20
remaining in the game.

Why not drive the best.


by Tim Croft
And a woman shall lead them.
The points championships at
North Florida Motor Speedway
were settled last weekend, with
Denise Trykowski out of
Tallahassee running away with
both the top spot in the Enduro
class and the overall points title.
"I've been on Cloud Nine for
days," Trykowski said. "It's, still.
kind of hard to believe."
,.The long-haired dynamo used
her first feature win and her first
against the men, ever earlier this
month to ,close on John Melvin in
the final weeks to take the Enduro
trophy, 959 points to 924.
Trykowksi and Melvin had
been buimper-to-bumper in the
Endurp standings: since early in
the season.,
In fact, Melvin still led
Trykowski by a slim two points
entering last weekend's final
points races.
Trykowski had all but conced-
ed the title to Melvin.
Trykowski just told her team
they were going out and have some
Sfun and end the season on an up
note, second or not. ,
S' "%(Melvin) knew he had to beat
me and I 'thought he would,",
Trykowski said.
But Melvin ran into'. some
problems in the heat races and
was in turn disqualified from the
feature, while Trykowski went on
to finish third to. earn the title. -
"We just headed down to the
'track and had some fun and who.
would've thought we'd come away
with the championship,"
Trykowski said.. "And then I find
out I wo'n not just the Enduro, but
the overall championship."'
Trykowski's 959. total points
narrowly .edged Greg "Opie"
Steverson (957 in Limited Super
StreetT. Dale'Groves (953 in Late
Model) and Mario Lupi (952..in
Hobb l tb the' o,\erall track polftif

championship. ,
"Just finishing the season was
a relief, all this other stuff is just
whipped cream and cherries,"
Trykowski said. "But this. isn't a
'me' thing, it's a 'we' thing. This is.
a team thing. They are the reason
I'm here right now. I'll never be
able to thank them enough." '
And when asked if she'll be
back behind' the wheel at NFMS
next year, Trykowski was quick
with her response, "Most definite-
ly."
Trophies and some $10,000 in
cash, will be handed out during
this weekend's season wrap-up at
the Wewahitchka'track.
The second-half points leader
in each class will receive'a trophy
and $100.' .
As to ,the season points lead-
ers, the top three in each class will
receive money: $250 for first, $200
for second and $150 for third.
Additionally. each driver in the
points fund will receive a portion of
the remaining pot of money, no
less than $25., based on theirf
points for the season.
The raceway also has a full,
slate of acticLties on tap this week-,
end for Halloween.
There will be a haynde for kids
and a nickel throw contest, with
S25 going to the finder of specially
marked nickels.
There will be a costume con-
test for kids in two age categories:
6-and-under and 7 through 14. A.
S25 cash prize 'will be given to the
winner in each category.
For adults, ,there is a Shoe
Fine with a S50 prize..

SENECA CHAMBERS

Chambers Shines At
Hinds Community College
Seneca Chambers, a 2001
graduate of Port St. Joe High, is
having a great sophomore year for
the Hinds Community College
Eagles in Raymond, Mississippi.
.The Eagles are off to a 4-3
start in the 2002 football season.
Chambers, listed as a player
to watch in the National Junior
College Athletic I Association's
preseason All-America selections,
has 39 receptions for 542 yards
through the first seven games. He
is averaging 13.9 yards per catch,
and 5.6 catches per game. ,
"Seneca has made some
outstanding catches for us this
season," said assistant coach Dot
Murphy. "
Seneca is being recruited by
several Division I programs.

Jaguars
Dominate at
Mt. Pleasant
.The only undefeated 9-10
year old team in the Big Bend
League, the Port St. Joe Jaguars,'
made the long bus 'trip to Mt.
Pleasant on a cold and rainy
night. They were looking for their
fifth win of the season and were
not disappointed. This was the:'
team's longest, road trip ever. It
obviously had some negative
,affect as they came out flat,
struggling in the first quarter.'
From then on,' however, it was
total domination.
The Jags went nowhere' the
-first time they had the ball but
then mounted a solid dnve ending
with the first of three touchdowns
by Calvin Pryor. Just before the
end ofthe half, Willie Quirin rana
tight end around from rrud field
and went all the way to the house.
Unfortunately, there was a flag o6n
the play and the ball went back to
the 28. On the next play, Pryor
broke it off tackle and scored the,
6 points.
The 'second half started with
Pryor'.in' the end zone again, this
time on'a 38 yard run All possible
starters were removed from the
game because of the league's 18
point rule and, the rrmmuni-backfield
went to work. Anton Garland had
30 yards on four carries. Jaylen
Pitman carried the mail four times
for 42 yards and a touchdown.
Roman Quinn had a touchdown
and a total of 47 yards on only
three carries.'
,The Jaguar defense has -a
motto. "ZERO" and for the fifth
straight game the\ lived up to it.
The\ have not allowed a TD in five
games and the boys say they
intend to keep it that way. Even
S, th two key players missing, they,
Shut down Mt. Pleasant
througIhot the game. The last
play of'1 the contest was typical of
the, whole evening. Nathah.
Tarahtino, filling in at safety for
Pryor, made a great play' to
intercept a pass and seal the
shutout. /
There is one regular, season
game left against the Wewa
Warriors. A win will give 'the
Jaguars the number onie.seed and
a bye in the first round of the
playoffs. Then, with a win in .the
playoff game it's on to, the Super'

"My favorite thing at the Wilds
was the giant swing. I also liked
- canoeing, tubing, and the water.
slide. I mostly enjoyed being there
with my friends."
"The giant swing was', my
favorite activity. It lifts you up 65
feet, then, it 'drops you. The giant
slide was -fun, but the water was
freezing.".
"At the Wilds the water slide
and giant swing were my favorite-
rides. I loved the speakers who'
taught us .many things about
spintual living. The hike to the
first falls was okay, but the water
was cold. The worst part of the
trip was the twisty mountain
roads. but I loved the Wilds and
can't wait to go back next year."

By Lori Price
WES has utilized the
Accelerated Reader program for a
number of years and found it to
be. quite helpful in motivating
children to read. Accelerated
S Reader .(AR) helps children focus
attention on the careful reading of
books, which improves students'
critical thinking skills and builds
an intrinsic love of reading.
A The program is quite simple.
S Students simply choose their own
books and read at their own pace.
after completing a book, students
take a quiz on a computer. Both
"** the student and teacher get
S immediate, individualized, con-
structive feedback to direct
ongoing reading practice.
Students earn points -
depending on the difficulty of the
book and the student's score on
theicomputer quiz. The points can
be redeemed at a special AR Store
which is opened several times
each school year.
S.AR has proven to be an
effective tool in exposing our
students to quality literature and
motivating them to read
independently. However, we
would like to give our students
additional incentive to read.
Here's where you come in...
: The WES PTO has purchased
two, very. large Christmas
S stockings. the stockings will be
filled with new children's hooks.
There will beE one stocking for
students in grades K-3 and one
for students. in grades 4-6.
Students who meet their reading
goal (as set by t;he teacher) will
have his/her name entered in a
drawing for the stockings in
December. One lucky, child in
each grade category will claim the
books and begin their own
personal library! w


The stockings are large and it
is going to take a lot of books to fill
them. Therefore, we are:asking all
o.F: supporters. all those who
en1oy reading andti understand the
importance it ,pan play in a child's
S ife. to donate iew children's book
for this cause. An attractive label
will be placed inside the front
cover of each. book indicating the
doonor. Books may also be donated
in, the memory of or in honor of a
special person in your life.
We are asking area churches,
civic organizations. retired edu-
cators. parents, grandparents.
Businesses and readers of all ages
to donate quality books for this
w rthy cause. Books nmay be
dropped off at our main office (be
sure'to leave a note indicating the
donor so that we can properly give
credit for the donation). If you.
prefer, you may leave a monetary
gift which will be' used to
purchase ..ass many books as
possible ".
Your support is : greatly
appreciated..

School Readiness
Coalition Meeting
.On Thursday, October 31 at
10:00 a.m.. ET. the Gulf County

,It's about the kids.
.Vickie and Larry Wayne
Scheffer choose to deflect any .
attention, any razzing in some
cases, that their once long locks
and recent shearing have gar-
nered.
,The focus should not be on
them, Vickie said, but on the rea-
soris behind what became a three-
yea* mission..
: It's about the kids.
*The Scheffers recently con-'
tri]luted a healthy 22.5 inches of
hami, 11.5 from Vickie and 11 from
Larry Wayne, to Locks of Love.
;That organization uses human
haif at least 10 inches from any
one person to fashion wigs or
hairpieces: for young cancer vic-
tin-is who have lost their hair while
undergoing treatment.
S"If you 'get cancer treatment
you can't afford the hair," Larry
Wayne said. "It gives them back
their self-esteem, their dignity."
SNoting that hair restoration
has become a huge business
among adult men in this country.
# Lairy Wayne continued., Think if
it's.a child, that's a big thing to a.
kic.' .
And it's all about the kids.'
'.The roots of this project can be
found at Shands Hospital and the
Roniald McDonald House in
Gainesville. :
SThe Scheffers make frequent
trips ,to Shands as part of the
ongoing care for their son, who
was born with a.heart condition.
During the more extended of
their stays, the Scheffers resided
at ;the Ronald McDonald House
ani made ,many 'friends' from
among the young. cancer patients
anl, their families. '
So a little more than three
years ago, the Scheffers made a
deal with each other. ..
-They would grow their hair to'
the required 10-inch minimum
and shear it off for Locks of Love.
.."It's our way' of honoring (the
young cancer patients: they have
befriended) in their struggle."
Vickie said.
"You can t live around people
like that for years and not feel that
\ay'. If people had a little more
conpassion this would be a better
place.'
;'.So, the Scheffers set about
watching their hair grow. They
took some razzina and noticed a
few strange looks but they kept to
it. -
r i tr.__':Tt started getLing more aggra-
vating that it was worth." Lam
SWayne said of hi- lengthening

Vickie added. "It's a senous

SYvour eyes. in your mouth. it's flmng-
ing everywhere.' .
But one thing staved' with

An adult should supervise

The Panhandle Players will
present the world premiere of The
Ice Man at the Dixie Theatre on
Friday Oct. 25 and Saturday Oct.

Written and directed by Tom
Campbell The Ice Man is a

the Civil War, The Ice Man depicts
the personal, family, and
professional struggles of Dr. John,
Gorrie, Apalachicola resident,
physician, and inventor. A
contemporary and friend of Dr.
Alvan Chapman. Gorne developed
his machine fori- making ice in
order to cool the sickrooms of
victims,, of the yellow -fever, a
common, and often fatal illness
that once plagued the local area.
Gorrie's struggles to gain
acceptance for. his invention
reveal a driven, and sometimes
flawed man who chased ;a
bittersweet dream.
Performance times Friday and
Saturday are 8:00 p.m. Tickets
are S5.00 and can be purchased -

CITY COUNCIL, GROUP II
DVar VOTERS.
The Mexico Beach AARP made ao lit of questions for the past meeting in regards to ihe upcoming election. This,List was given to all the
candidates prior to the AARP meeting this past Friday. October 18th The following is provided to better'inform you..on my position to
lhese questions PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CALL ME AT 648-5229
1. What challenges do you see as most critical facing the City in the upcoming two to four years?
I feel that we need to control both SPENDING and GROWTH Our City has spent a lot of money over the past 5 years(.sewer system,
water line street paving, ETC ETC ) I also feel that if we allow uncontrolled growth we will lose our biggest asset, THE BEACH. The
amount of townhouses are dislurb;ng We really need to attract small business family business and keep our QUIET ALTERNATIVE quiet.
2. What is your opinion on the current Medical services and what do you propose to improve them? '
Being so far away from a Hospital, I feel that we NEED an ambulance service located here in the City The majority of residents in our
town are elderly. Taking care of the res,.denli' needs should be our C,r/'s Frst priority. The residents are the backbone of our town and
should come before development, beautification or any oiher kind of'spending TAKE CARE OF YOUR LOCALS AND THEIR NEEDS FIRST;
Asian elected ofic.al I will put the' needs of our residents first
3. What are your ideas on building and financing a new Community Center9
As I lust stated our residents should come first. The $50,000 dollars that our officials spent for a vision plan should have been put into'
the community This money would have been a BIG start towards anew center for our Residents. I believe.that a Community Center
should be located somewhere on 15th Street and should be build A.S.A.P. Land is.getting more expensive and harder to find everyday.
OUR town needs a new Community Center.
4. What'are your thoughts on an independent audit of the City?
Our City .is spending a lot of money.. The sale of the Duren Property is just one example. We borrowed,money to purchase this property.
When the City Officials iold this land they put the Money in the General fund to be spent within one year. I believe that they also put
money from Ihis saleinto LAST year's budget to cover over spending. We are still paying about $50,000 next year to cover this property
that the City NO LONGER OWNS. This is not good business sense. As a landowner with a mortgage, our officials should have relieved
the debt on this lot and used the profits for the General Fund. I believe that our City needs this audit to ensure our residents that our tax
dollars are being spent wisely and in our best interest.. "
5. How much growth do you anticipate in the next 10 years and what are your thoughts on the annexation of additional land?
I believe that if the Residents of this town wait much longer growth will be out of control. The sewer system has put our town in the center-
of the bull s-eye. Every developer and contractor has his sites set on developing Mexico Beach. After talking with many Residents, MOST
of which are against development, I 'feel that the city needs to keep our Current Land Development Limits. These limits include height,
density and' setback regulations. I feel that any annexation of land should be limited. I would further impose heavy impact Fee's on any
annexed land. The burden that large annexations would put on our city services, utilities, and roadways should be the sole responsibility
of the developers who wish to' annex.into our quiet alternative
6. What is your position on the additional Homestead Exemption for senior citizens?
Our elderly have paid their share of taxes and any help that the City c6n give to them is GREAT!
7. Whatdo you think are M.B.'s most important assets and how would you 'maintain and improve them?
Four things instantly come to mind. The BEACH, the CANAL, the PIER and our PEOPLE. I would continue with the way we are keeping
our beaches, Clean and Safe. We should took for funding for our CANAL and our PIER. We need to get these two items solved as they
have been a heavy burden for years. These are the reasons the PEOPLE live and vacation here in Mexico Beach. The Homestead exemp-
tion is a GREAT way to attract and KEEP the:elderly living here in M.B.
8. What do you think about the effect on our city if Highway 98 is closed to the East and.a Back Beach Road is built?
If we control growth and maintain our Land Development Regulations this could be a good thing for the Quiet Alternative. If we allow
growth to control-our City then this probably will be the demise of our City as we know it. The only safe bet is that Thru traffic will be
eliminated.
9. What are your thoughts on the Vision Plan for the City?
$50,000 dollars is a lot of money to spend on a couple sheets of paper! We elect our'Mayor and Council for just that reason, To LEAD
OUR COMMUNITY in the best direction for our residents and our City. As an American I understand having to pay taxes, However as a
landowner 1 am opposed to being forced to spend my money on things that the City wants in my yard. Like Requiring "White Picket
Fences"! I work hard for my money and what I have after taxes should be mine to do with what ever I want. The City should have no say
on HOW or WHAT we spend our money on. The Cost Burden to implement this Vision plan will be ENORMOUS. Beach tons and all
towns need their personality and diverse appearance. 1"
10. What are your thoughts on providing Bike/Pedestrian paths throughout the City for the Safety of the public?
There is definitely a need in our City for these. I feel we should look at the most dangerous areas first and start looking for funding from
State and Federal Agencies. These paths cannot be done overnight, however we do NEED these for our Residents safety.
11. What would you do to improve communication with the community?
I feel that our Local Channel could be used to inform the public better. A new video/audio system would be a great start for the Council
meetings. The Citizens should have more involvement in the MAJOR issues. Referendum voting would be a good way to get Citizen input
on issues like a New Pier or a new Marina. I also feel that our City Hall could use some improvement in regards to Organization and
equal treatment of its Citizens. A

several hundred liens, and It would cost the County
