Mill Site Structure to Be Imploded Sunday, November 10th


by Tim Croft
For months the demolition of
the paper mill has been akin to the
crashing waves on a beach, erod-
ing the landscape a grain at a time,
the drama only captured in time-
lapse images.
That has changed in the past
several weeks.
Suddenly, the, holes to the bay
are more gaping while the exterior
of the remaining upright struc-
tures stripped away to reveal the
belly of the beast.
And'in a little more than a
week, in a cloud of dust, three of
the major buildings on the site will
come down and the close of an era
will be far more apparent from the
passing roadway.
At 8:30 a.m.. November 10, a
Sunday, teams will implode build-
ing Nos. 5. 6 and 9, recovery boiler
structures tialt are among the last
upnght buildings standing testa-
ment to a bygone age. .
Roughly two months later, on
or about Jan. 13, the tallest struc-


ture remaining on thle site, No. 7,
will be brought to its knees. '
Next 'Sunday's 'blasting will
take place in the span of about 10
minutes.
U.S. 98 will be closed and
boats will be prevented from. get-
" ing near the site, as teams from
CDI Inc., out of Maryland implode
the buildings with controlled
charges.
S 'They are very experienced,"
said John Griffith, co-division
manager for CCC Group, the com-
pany demolishing the mill.
"They've .worked all- over the
world. They are a good bunch.",
The explosions will be set with
exacting precision. The pile of rub-
ble left behind must be no more
than 40 feet high in any one place
to make it manageable to cut and
ship out.
SThe dust cloud should settle
within 800 feet Gnlfith said CDI
is so good that workers mark a
chalk outline for the dust cloud.
which invariably proves to be the


outer boundary.
. "(The dust and debris) should-


n't get off the property," Griffith
said.

The first shall be last.
County voters heading to. the
polls on Tuesday should .be mind-
ful that the important question
-concerrung whether the county
should return to at-large voting
will be the final question on the
ballot.
Because-of' state' -dictates ori
the ballot order, the at-large ques-
tion will be on the back of the two-
sided ballot, after the federal and
state races as well as the 'two,
county races and after all the
questions concerning constitution-
al amendments. ,
It's a two-sided ballot and the
county question is the last item,
on the back of the ballot.", said
Supervisor of' Elections Linda
Griffin.
Last week. Gnffin had just
completed her final workshop with
poll workers, going over last
rmnute details and getting them
re-acquainted with the new scan-
ning machines first unveiled in the.
September primary.:
And reminding them to be pre-
- pared in case of longer hours if the
folks in South Florida haven't got-
ten this election business straight
yet.
e'I told them not to forget to
bring their food, because it could
be a long day, and not to forget
their medication if they need it,"
Griffin said with a chuckle.
With luck, the hours will stay'
7 a.m. until 7p.m .
Griffin was also confident that
the few isolated kinks'of the pri-
maryvhave been addressed. partic-
ularly problems with sending the
results by' modem, one of the,
advantages of the new machinery.
Due to a programming error
by the company .providing the
scanners and software, all the
.modems had the area code includ-
ed in their dial-up numbers.


However, the county is now
completely local, so the modems
could not be used from locations
outside of Port St. Joe.
"It wasn't that big of0 a deal in
a small county." Gnfmin said. not-
ing that poll workers had arrived
with the results within 40 or so
rrTinutes of the polls closing.
I havebeen' assured we will be
able to modem this time. That was

Flood Insurance Causing Concerns


at Cape San Blas and Ind'an Pass


'.Red flags are flying all along
'.Cap -San,,i Blas/St. Joseph
Peninsula and Indian Pass penin-
sula.; Work is filtering down to,
property owners that WNC.
Insurance Group, the only insui-
ance provider offering private,
flood insurance locally. has
instructed 'local agents not to
write any .neW policies at this
point in time.
Hannon Insurance Agency,.
(Gulf) and Cook Insurance Agency
(Franklin). the only two carriers
who. are writing private flood
insurance locally, received this.
word from WNC Insurance Group.
While on the surface one rrught
think this should have a dramatic
impact on all area property own-
ers. most all property owners pur-
chase federally backed flood
insurance at a cheaper rate rather
than buying pnvate' flood cover-
age.
The catch is if your property
happens to fall within the bound-
aries of the Coastal Barrier
Resource Act (CBRA) designation.
These two dreas are located along
St. Joseph Peninsula and Indian.
Pass peninsula.: .
"If you're located within the
CBRA you've got big problems on
your hands." said Ron Morrow,
chairman of the Gulf County
Coastal Development Association.
This group has. .been very
active in battling'new federal flood
map proposals- and seeking to
repeal 'CBRA designation at the
Cape and Indian Pass. They have
already been successful in getting
,,the new flood maps changed so
';fhat much of the 'property that
was going' to, be changed to a
higher flood probability zone will
remain in a more favorable flood
zone.
But even this. will not protect
property owners within the CBRA
that intend to borr-ow money for
construction. Johanna White,
president of Capital' City Bank,
pointed out that federal lending,
policies require flood insurance in
flood zones. Neither construction
loans, refinancing, improvements,
Snor purchase loans can be made
by the bank without proof of flood
insurance.
White said if no private flood
insurance source is available
Capital City and other area lend-
ing institutions would probably be
impacted in a major way on con-
struction loans within CBRA-des-
ignated areas. .
Hannon said there was no'


* clear /word yet as to 'what WNC
Insurance Group was going to do
long term. Several possibilities
exist: they could start selling poli-
cies as usual again; start selling
.policies but with greater restric-
Lions and requirements placed :on-
property owners in flood zones;
not write policies at all in the'
future or some combination of
these.
The information does indicate
renewals of existing policies will.
continue. .
Hannon also noted that this
restri6tioh only pertains to flood
insurance. The companies can.
write fire protection and wind
packages as usual.
."The long term solution to
this problem would be to repeal
CBRA and get federal flood insur-
ance back into those areas,"
Hannon said.
Indeed' this is exactly what
the Gulf' County Coastal
Development Association is


attempting to do. Those actions.
include trying to get legislation
passed in Washington to repeal
CBRA.
Morrow said this could not,be
done without the help of area
Congressman Allen 'Boyd and
Senator Bob Graham. -
Another important note is
how this could affect the county's
tax base. Since the paper mill
shut down in 1998 one of'the
major areas of increased tax base
in Gull County has been develop-
ment and appreciation of property
values at the Cape and -Indian
Pass. This increase in tax, rev-
enues has been one ,of the major
catalysts to help pull the county
coffers out of that major slump.
If. private insurance is no
longer available and the CBRA is
not repealed this tax base could
become stagnant or shut down
except for investors and residents
who have the financial wherewith-
all to find their construction pro-
jects without final icing.


Wewa Commissioners Evaluating Purchase

of New Fire Truck vs Insurance Rating


by Tim Croft
The proposed purchase of a
new fire truck raised some collar
heat among Wewahitchka city
commissioners during their regu-
'lar meeting Monday night.
Commissioners are trying to
find a way to address a kind of
Catch 22.
To maintain a sufficient
enough insurance rating to hold
the city's liability insurance premi-
ums in line, the city must pur-
chase a new pumper truck for the
fire department because their
newest pumper is now 10 years
old.
To keep the insurance rate. at
its present level, the city's first line
pumper must be less than 10
years old.
However, the current first line
pumper isn't a typical 10-year-old
truck. With just over 8,000 miles
on the odometer; the wear and tear
of 10 years is not remotely akin to
what would be experienced in a
big-city fire department.
And with a price tag of
. $200,000-plus, a new truck could
be a drag on the city's budget for
several years.
The county has committed to
paying half the purchase price for
the new truck.


Wewahitchka commissioners
discussed the feasibility of deter-
mining what the difference in
insurance rates should the. city
choose to stick with what it has in
pumper trucks.
"The taxpayers are paying
either way," said Phillip Gaskin.
"Which.is cheaper?"
To ., receive another rating,.
though, the city would have to
start from scratch with a new
inspection and new calculations
with no real clue what a new rate,
taking into account a fire truck
more than 10 years old, might be;
However, Alan McNair,. cur-
rently the executive director of the
county Economic Development
Council, wondered if there wasn't
some exemption available for small
communities in which a sparingly-
used 10-year-old pumper was suf-
ficient for its needs.
"There ought to be some kind
of exemption for a small communi-
ty," McNair said. "That (the cost of
a new truck) is a real burden for a
small community."
The commission decided to
take up the issue again during a
special meeting at 4:30 p.m. CT on
Monday, allowing for time to inves-
tigate the city's options.

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY Hu nker Down W ith Kes by Kesley Colbert.
COLUMN I $


It Didn't Take Us Long To Look Around


In My Opinion


It's that time again, when we citizens have the responsibility to send
messages to our elected officials and maybe name a few new ones in the
process.
I'm sure most everyone has heard, read and seen enough political
hype to hold them over for a few years, when we'll start this process all
over again.
Over the past few weeks I've taken the opportunity to voice'my opin-
ion on at-large voting, which I favor, and the constitutional amendments.
One thing I have been reminded on more than one occasion is that
some people don't really care what my opinion is, With that in mind I also
regularly get asked to endorse candidates.
We do not do this on a local level simply because I strongly feel the
local paper needs to be neutral. On the state arid federal level, though,
that's a different story. I don't mind one little bit telling how I feel or how
I'm going to vote, but I still want you to bear-in mind it is just my opin-
ion.
I will.vote for. Governor Jeb Bush to return for a second term as gov-
ernor. I really have very simple reasons to give him this support.
First-his stance on moral issues very closely parallel those beliefs,
That I hold. .
Second-I believe several of his plans, including the area of education,
are major steps in the right direction that are long overdue.
Third-he has demonstrated a heart, for our community in its time of
need that I've seldom seen in politicians, nonetheless a governor of the
state of Florida.
I was standing right next to the governor a few years ago when he
looked over to his head of the Department of Correctons and told him he
needed to find a way to get the annex at GC1 open so those folks in Gulf
County could go back to work-that statement alone was reason enough
for him to get my vote.
The other candidate I would like to mention is Congressman Allen
Boyd. I've know the congressman since he first announced his candidacy
several years ago. He also has proven to be a true friend of Gulf County.
While he and I do have a few differences on some issues those items give
me and his congressional aides something to talk about when they
visit-Keep up the good work, congressman, and thanks for your help.
Stop and Think Before You Sign
"'' The other item I would like to mention in this editorial concerns an ad
in this week's paper from the Panhandle Citizens Coalition. They are
announcing that petitions calling for referendum vote will be available at
.polling places around the county on election day, November 5th.
Those issues are: (1) call for referendum vote on the moving of a por-
tion of Hwy. 98. (2) Port St. Joe charter amendment saying no property
can be annexed into the city without.voter approval and (3) amend Port
St. Joe City charter to prohibit- the city from providing services (water and
sewer) without prior voter approval.'
Now, I'm not opposed to citizens input nor petituuons. In fact. I think
citizens should probably speak up more. In this case. choosing to sign or
not sign a petition is in and of itself speaking up. ."
This issue on the question of Hwy. 98 is. as far as I know. a dead
issue. On March 4, 2002, the St. Joe Company and FDOT entered into a
right-of-way exchange agreement signed and documented by both parties.
In that agreement St. Joe placed in wmiting what the citizens of the
area over more than two years of planning and three public meeting
agreed was a fair trade off. St. J.oe. in writing, agreed to leave the beach
open to the public, build first-rate access points, not develop seaward of
the old road bed and not build on the old road bed. They also agreed to a
'number of FDOT requirements. This is a win-win for the citizens of this
community and for the St. Joe Company. Other options for development
- (which is going to come) would have not been nearly as favorable.
As for amendments to the city's charter to require voter approval for
annexation and providing services: city commissions have been elected to
take care of those matters and are doing a mighty' fine job.
What this group really wants is to stop development and hate the St.
Joe Company. They have every right to their desires, but I'm sure not
interested in them getting their way at the expense of ordinary folks who
have to live, work and raise their families in Gulf County, and PSJ.
Their efforts would stop aggressive efforts to create new jobs in Gulf
County', give up hope for better and higher paying jobs in the future, and
.hurt the hope for a better life for our kids and grandkids.
I consider my signature to be a precious thing and will not give it up
lightly. I simply ask that voters going to the polls next Tuesday look at
their ballots and such items as these petitions very senously.


One Halloween Ricky Gene
allowed we ought to go out to Gus .
Finsterwall'rs old barn and have a
say-ance. His suggestion didn't"
meet with universal approval for
several reasons. First off, it was a


long hike out ..ere through some
pretty tough woods. Didn't no one
in the group (including Ricky
Gene) have a clue as to what a sav-
ance was. And most of all. it had
been widely reported that strange
noises could be heard coming from
that I.- rn late at night..
"I ain't walking all the way out
there when there are Snicker bars
to 'be had right across the street.",
Yogi had kinda scrunched his face
up like he pondered on it some and
di-smrissed the idea as impractical.


"Isn't Millicent Blackburn hav-
ing a party? I could tell Buddy
was angling for an excuse NOT to
trek out to the barn. I just didn't
know if he was wanting to avoid
the long walk or he was afraid of
those rumors about the place
being haunted.
"It will be a full moon."
Squeaky removed all doubt about
how he felt
"Kes, what do. you think?" I
hesitated. Leon had told me stories
about Mr. 'Finsterwall's first wife

going out to the barn and never
being seen again. He also told me
about finding the skeleton in the
tack room. And seeing shadows
moving across the hay loft window.
And, once late at night. when he..
and Jackie were coon hunung and,
the dogs wandered over that way,
he heard screams coming out of
that old building.
'Course, Leon was always,
telling me wild stories*.... ', I ,'
I had been by the barn many'
times.. You could see if. from, the
Steadman Ridge Road in the_ 'win -
ter time when 'all, the leaves were
off the trees. It looke,.pretty ordi-,,
nary. But then, the upstairs bed-
room in Elizabeth 1Borden's house
looked "ordinary"! .
"Are ya'll afraid to go?'" Ricky. i
Gene had, said the magic words.,
I saw Squeaky's chest fall.
Buddy kinda pawed at die'
ground.,
Yogi Brewer looked over at me .
like maybe.I could come up with a
way out.
We had been challenged! We
had no choice nowl Nothing short
of a supernatural phenomenon
like a giant flood, an earthquake or
a swarm of South American bees
could keep us from. visiting the
barn.
We tried to talk Millicent into
moving her party out to
Finsterwall's barn but she would-
n't even consider it. Somehow the
word had gone around school and
most of the guys we'd united to go
along had to be out of town or were
going to be sick or had made some
other "couldn't-get-out-of-
prorruse'" for the evening.
My brothers really helped.
Leon remembered a lot more
details about the dead body in the-.
tack room and the ghost-like shad-.
ows in the loft door and the head-:
less horsemen that kept circling
the building as if looking for some-
thing! David Mark wanted to know
if I didn't come back could he have
the Western Flyer and my baseball
cards....

his face. He was bigger than a

I awoke in a cold sweat.
Halloween ain't never been one of

they had never seen one before.
I could tell them this:.they'
Should have to look quidk, in
order to see one, on the wing in
my. back yard. or anywhere else.",
They don t stay'in any one ,
spot for any period of time. They
just dart at a blossom, extract a
sip of nectar, then zip on their.
way. somewhere else'.


anytime


I WISH THE FOLKS from
-New'. Jersey had' come, by,
Monday morning. .
S' would, at least, have shown
them a hummingbird sitting on.
a bare limb in my satsuma tree,
resting g. That would have'been a
sight for them to see. .
Hummingbirds', don t sit
around', doing nothiiig, very
often.
Every morning. about 'the
Time I am getting my orange
juice out of, the refrigerator, the
hummingbird .is just :,sitting
there onr-that.bare limb.
: It's the only bare limb'on the
tree and it belongs to that hum-
mingbird. .
No doubt New Jersey doesn't
have room for' hummingbirds.'
They're all filled upi with highly
ri~s'e buildings and turnpikes.
No wonder they .wanted to
see my hummingbirds! .

I DIDN'T REALIZE that'
hummingbirds were on the list


of sights to see when, one came
to Florida. I thought that activi-
ty was reserved for the beaches
and Walt Disney World!
Ydu can see a lot of things
when one comes to Florida, they
don't ordinarily sei somewhere
else.
Old Kes is one of these
things, not seen anywhere else
He's something' to see; along
With my hummriingbirds.
The next time -those friendss
from New Jersey" come to visit
you,'Kes, you just bring them on
by, without asking if it's alright.
They'll be welcome. Why,
we'll even, show. them how to
pass the time, .sitting on the
front porch; maybe even let
themi"fi.their hand at writing a
guest column or two about New
Jersey.
Folks down here like to see
stories about foreign countries
and different habits. They may
even get to be friends with your
"friends from New Jersey".'

District 2 Commission and School Board Race Review


"Editor's note: Last week we
took-a look at the Mexico Beach city
elections, Today, we examine the
two) county races on Tuesday's bal-
lot, 'the Distict'2 race for the School
Bodrd and District 2- race for the
County Commission.
County Comm. District 2
- by Tim Croft
Four years after a tough cam-
S paign ended with fewer than 30
S votes' separating them, Tommy
Montford and Billy Traylor are
hard at work again.
Montford, a Democrat, is try-
ing to oust Traylor, a' Republican
and 'the second-longest serving
commissioner in the county; from
the 'District 2 seat on the Gulf,
County Commission.
And few would be surprised if
the final margin, regardless of who
emerges victorious, is as close as it
was in 1998.
7'Montf6rd, it could be argued,
is running as the anti-Traylor.
"I didn't liked the position that
Billy Traylor took on some things,"
Monftford said. "If I do win the elec-
tion, I can't take the credit. People
; want, change, they want Billy out
of there. He's been there too, long."
Exhibit 1 in his argument is
the realignment of U.S. 98, which
Montford said was a decision to
accommodate the development
plans of The St. Joe Co.
:He argued that instead of the
five ,:commissioners determining
whether to realign the road for a 3-
plus mile stretch, the citizens
should have had the final voice.
'"Let the people vote on it,"
Montford said, adding that citizen'
approval would have provided
plenty of political cover for the
commissioners .
He said currentt commission-
ers seem content to placate St. Joe
instead of holding "their feet to the
fire" for equitable return in the
form of land or0 be&ah access, for
example as the company devel-
ops' its holdings.
Growth and the managing of
the inevitable development loom-
ing on the horizon, Montford said.


will be the most pressing issue for
the Commission over the next four
years.
And he said Traylor is too
Ensconced in the "good old boy"
network in the county to suitably
advocate for the people.
"Let's take (growth) a lot slow-
er," Montford said. "Let's not go so
fast that it hurts the ecology."
Montford is an advocate of at-
large voting, believing that while it
is appropriate for commissioners
to work for their districts, "the
decisions I'd make as a commis-.
sioner affects the whole county
and you should represent the
whole county."
He chided Traylor over com-
missioners' inappropriate use of
county credit cards and the coun-
ty's decision to accept wastewater
from surrounding counties.
And he said the "special cate-
gory" funds commissioners 'receive.
annually amounts to a "checkbook
for re-election," a slush fund' to
curry favor from voters.
Montford also said he would
have voted to roll back the millage
rate and let the taxpayers, not the
county coffers, reap the dividends
of rising,property values.
: "They should have let the peo-
ple benefit from the growth,"
Montford said. "I feel I need to be
accountable to (the taxpayers).
Those .other conumrissioners don't
think they ought to be account-
able."
Projects Montford said he
would champion as a commission-
er include trying to put the-dam
back in the Dead Lakes, using the
old Dead Lakes state park to farm
fish to restock the river and utiliz-
ing resoui-ces suchas the deepwa-
ter port and rail line to attract new
industry.
Traylor embraces his role as
an advocate for his district and as
a "leader" on the commission, one
result of his having served since
1989. -,
"You have to want to do it," "
Traylor said of a comrrussioner's
job. "It's a service you provide. You _


Tommy Montford Billy Traylor
GULF COUNTY COMMISSION, DIST. 2


can help so many people."
He said the changes since he
took office have been dramatic.
"There's still a lot of one-oP-
one," Traylor, said.' "It's still real
personal in a small county like,
this. But it- has also become a lot,
more of a business."
Traylor agrees that growth,,
and particularly the county DRI
process, "is the single most impor-
tant thing that will happen in the
this county in the, next five years."
He disputes' characterizations
that he and his fellow commission-
ers have been too accommodating
to St. Joe, saying they have worked
to, get trade-offs where possible,'
mindful that the development of
St. Joe's lands is a reality of the
future.
"We are going to go slowly and
carefully," Traylor said. "Don't get
in a big rush. Nothing can be set in
concrete right now."
.Growth, "good growth,":,
Traylor said is essential to creating
- the sort of jobs that will keep kids
in the county after they complete
their schooling.
It isn't The St. Joe Co., or any
other bie developer, who is the
800-pound gorilla on the block. .
S The live who sit (on the com-
mission) are the gorillas." Traylor
said. "from the aspect that they are
going to have the last say-so."
Hie said the realignment of
U.S. 98 was all but a done deal,
before the concept left Tallahassee
and said public input was invited
at several hearings.
The issue. he said. was ensur-
ing it was done right with appro-
pnate trade-off in the form of pub-
lic access to the beaches and piers
at Windmark.
The bottom line, he said. is
that he is elected "to make a lot of
decisions."
I'm pot for (St. Joe) or against
thZe," Traylor said. 'I want what's

fair for the community."
Traylor said he had mixed feel-
ings about the prospect of return-
ing to at-large voting, calling it
"good and bad."
People, he said, like having,
someone represent their district in
pushing for more grant money,
park dollars and road paving.:
He said that, in one sense,
"districts could get hurt" .by a
return to at-large voting.
Traylor said the decision rot to
.rollback the millage rate was a
non-issue in his district and that a
more thorough review of all county
budgets is in order.
-"Everybody has to be more
accountable in, the budget pro-
cess," Traylor said. "The whole
process needs to be looked at." ;
He defended the special cate-
gory funding each' commissioner
gets, saying he has used his dol-
lars for a-variety of projects in his
district, from parks and recreation
to Little League.
The Economic Development
Council. he said, is working better
than ever since comments he
.:made to some members ignited a
firestorm of controversy and led to
the resignation of former director
Karen Whaley. .
"(Interii m director) Alan
(McNair) is doing a fantastic job,"
Traylor said. "He's more in turie
with what the people are doing
here and the needs of the people.
He's being personal, more hands-.
on."
He's proud of his seniority on
the commission, his outspoken- ,
ness which on more than one
occasion has landed him in hot
water and his record of reaching
out to help the people in his dis-
trict, a role he seemed to relish
above all.
"It's got a lot to do with staying
on top of things." Trdylior'
k;People up here want,helpa'd' ser-


vices when they need it. People are
getting that.help and service."
His priorities the next four
years include improving trans-
portation infrastructure in, the
county as .a tool for bringing good
jobs to the area.,
SCHOOL BOARD/DISTRICT 2
There are no, shortage of edu-
cation bona fides as George C'ox

District 2 seat on the Gulf County

And both said they would not -,

Pridgeon, ,an advocate of term lim-

School Board From Pg3A


Cox said, "Two terms are
enough. You aren't supposed to b'e
in there for a career. If you can't
get it done in eight years you
shouldn't be in there."
Cox is running for the office
because, "I don't believe I've done
everything'in education that I want
to do. There is more I have to offer.
I want to see if I could make a dif-
ference."
He said his background in
finance provides valuable insight
into the workings of school bud-
gets.
And while he was reserved
concerning whether the district
had more money to earmark for
teachers, he pointed to several fac-
tors that undermine collegial nego-
tiations, particularly a hard line
adopted by the district since the
union arrived.
He said being a small county

"It's looks pretty abandoned..'
"I don't think anyone has been

We crept ever so slowly

with a large swath of undeveloped
land constrains the amount of
funding available.
Cox added that in his view
board members "have no earthly
idea what the teachers are asking
for or what the district can afford."
"I think there could be more
money for teachers,"'Cox said, and
not just for salaries and benefits,
but for classroom supplies.
The issue, he believes, isn't so
much dollars, but priorities.
"It should be students first,
employees second and the fiscal
plant third," Cox said.
Further, the issue is more
than simply dollars and cents.
Teacher morale, as revealed in a
recent survey by an outside con-
sultant, is drooping.
Such things as restoring the
Teacher of the Year banquet and
other methods of recognition could
go a long way to improving the out-
.look in schools.
'There are some small things
that could show appreciation," Cox
said. "When teachers are enthusi-
astic students are generally enthu-
siastic.'
Cox also advocates restoring
some of the vocational programs in
the, district by tapping, into
resources such as Haney High
School in Bay County or the
Gulf/Franklin satellite of Gulf
Coast-Community College.,
He said' development by The
St. Joe Co. and others will bring
'increased enrollment and the dis-
trict must be ready.
One tool, Cox said. would be a
' more detailed five-year plan for
needs'. .
"It's being done but probably
not as extensively as it needs to be
done,"' Cox said. .
And 'while he agrees that a
student t /teacher ratio is -essential,
he said a cookie-cutter approach
won't always Nork in a small dis-
*trict.. .
He also believes the' county
office is a "little over-staffed," ,and
that the district must -strictly
adhere to its discipline 'policy to
prevent occurrences such as the
racial melee at Wewahitchka High
School in the spring.
As a retire d teacher, Cox said
he ,would be accessible to con-
stituents and spend time in the
schools .
"It's not as much to be seen,
but. to see," Cox said. "What's
going on, how things, are working."
But he said concrete'promises,
are :-Ilusive, since his would be just
one of five votts on the board.i
C'ox; who supports single-
member districts, provided an apo-
litical insight into the non-partisan
If I win. or Sharun w,.in,. the


School Board will have good repre-
sentation," he said. "Either way
the board can't lose."
Gaskin's candidacy is the-
product of an internal motor.
"I'm driven to be part of pro-
viding the best quality education,"
Gaskin said. "Just because we are
small doesn't mean we have to
accept some of the things you have
to as a small county."
An advocate of at-large dis-
tricts, Gaskin promises to contin-
ue Pridgeon's legacy of serving the
whole county.
"I look forward to the'challenge
because my visions are where. Gulf
County will be in 10 years,",
Gaskin said.
A priority would be a thorough
* needs assessment 'of the district,
in part to determine why teachers
are leaving, where they are going
and what the district has to do to
create an attractive jobimarket.
"You don't develop a basis for
retention until you look at the rea-
son people are leaving," she said.
She agreed with Cox that it
isn't all about salaries for teachers,,
but also the non-monetary bene-
fits that can let an instructor know
they are essential and appreciated.
For example, scholarships
could be provided so teachers can
continue their education.
'These people are the reasons
we have A and B schools," Gaskin
said. "They are the reasons our
students are going to college."
She added that annual, cost-
of-living increases,, in addition to
incremental or step, increases,
should be a given for teachers.
But assessing'what the district
can pay requires an assessment of
needs, adding. "I think there are
:stones to be uncovered" to raise
teacher pay'.
Gaskin also believes the board
must :be politically, savvy, in
addressing financial issues
throughuh the Legislature and said
her background provides the right
tools for such efforts.
She said she will work to cre-
ate more of a team atmosphere on
the board, which said she does not
see in the current board. ;
She is also concerned about a
cookie-cutter approach to class
sizes, saying that the
student/teacher ratio recently
implemented by, the ., board
appeared to have left some of the
larger classes in: core, academic
courses, saying it should be a pri-
Sority to address that issue.
Gaskin also advocates the
resumption of some vocational
programs as well- as ROTC,. call ing
them essential to providing a
broad-based curriculum to meet
-the needs of all,students.-
-* She said- thei'board also needs
'to be more probing of district ihi'- 0
tiatives instead of deferring fre-.
quently to -Supenntendent Jerry
Kelley.
"It's our job to 'support, him,',

John .Rich shows off Shitake mushrooms he grew in oak logs.
Mushroom sperm was implanted in the logs in late February. Twenty
logs were implanted at the garden at Port St. Joe Elementary School,
-but they were hit by rain from Tropical Storm Hanna, retarding the
blooms. These mushrooms sprouted from 10 logs Rich implanted in
his backyard. The technique, which involves drilling a hole in the log,
tapping in the mushroom sperms and covering the holes with wax, is
a recent innovation from the University of Florida Extension Service. -
The logs will continue to produce mushrooms for up to four years.

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 voting (county-wide).
Voters have previously overwhelmingly given support to an effort to return
to at-large voting, but, what makes this question a little different, is the cost:
associated with a change. Gulf is currently under a 1987 Federal Court con-
sent decree to vote by single member districts.
Gulf Conmmissioners have, with the exception of commissioner 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 member district voting mandate and attempt to return to coun-
tywide 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 commis-
sionersthat 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 hangour hats on.
Washington County has been challenging a federal consent decree on single
member districts for some time now and has, beenisuccessful in efforts tp over-
turn 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 Circuit
Court Linda Cook and asked her, "How much did it cost?"
After going back and reviewing her, records, Clerk Cook said, $30,000.
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 Cou nt' citizens, regardless of where theylive 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 every
penny of its cost to challenge this issue. ,
I understand Conummissioner Peters' concerns over these issues, but Gulf
voters have long since proven that race is not the determining-factor -in vo
wins local elections.
WVhen Gulf County voters go to the polls on Nov. 5th 1 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 yearsariand 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 what's best for them.

The demolition is 'progressing
and Griffith said they are "about
right on schedule" to be.completed
roughly a year from now.
"The big thing with this thing.
is the logistics of getting .the stuff
out' of here," Griffith said, as
another train backed onto the site
to take: out more steel.
Consider just this one aspect
of those logistics.
Each car leaving the site goes
to Chattahoochee. where it is
switched to other tracks for the
trip to Mobile, Ala.
In. all, if requires 18 days for a
car to leave the site, make its trip
and return to the site.,
So, inr order to get 30 rail cars
of steel; off the site each week,
Griffith must have 269 cars dedi-
cated to the demolition job.
'We've'been getting about 25
carloads a week out." Gnffith said.
"Not quite frequent- enough. We'd
like to get more out."

Port St. Joe Wins Battle of the Sharks 34-24


The Port St. Joe Sharks'
rushing game has come to life just
at the right time season, with the.
Sharks in the hunt for a play-off
spot.
The Sharks pounded out 278
yards rushing Friday night en-
route to an exciting 34-24 over
Apalachicola.
"Our offensive line kept us in
'the game until we could finally
take control defensively," said
head coach John Palmer.
Apalachicola took the opening
kick-off of the game and quickly
marched down the field behind
the arm, and legs of quarterback
Emory Ross., Once inside the 10
yard'line with a first and goal, for
some odd reason, Apalachicola
switched quarterbacks.. Port St.
Joe stopped Apalach on three
straight downs, and Matt Nolen
gave Apalach a 3-0 lead with a 20
yard, field goal with 6:59
remaining in the first quarter.
Port St. Joe took the ensuing
kick-off and drove down the field
to the 15 yard line, -and had a 15


yard touchdown run by. Randall
Johnson called back on a holding
penalty. On fourth and 18,
Apalach's Jeremy Turrell inter-
cepted a pass from quarterback
Kenny McFarland and returned it
28 yards to the Port St. Joe 38'
yard line.
Apalach then drove 62 yards
in five plays to take a 10-0 lead
with 11:52 left in the first half.
Ross capped off the drive with a
49 yard. touchdown .pass to
Dorian Evans on a post pattern.
Brad Ray's 41' yard kick-off
return gave the Port St. Joe good
field position on the Apalach 44
yard line. The Sharks wasted little
time narrowing the lead to 10-7.
McFarland completed a pass: to
Raye Bailey on the first play from
scrimmage for 29 yards. On the
next play, Vic Hamilton took a
hand-off on the left side and
scored from 15 yards out. Gaddis
added the point after touchdown
.with 11:15 left in thej second
quarter.
.Nick Reynolds set up the'


Sharks next scoring drive, when
he recovered an Apalachicola
fumble on the Port St. Joe 45 yard
line, with 9:26 remaining. The-
Sharks overcame ,30 yards in
penalties to take a 14-10 lead, on
Randall Johnson's five yard
touchdown run with 2:27 left in.
the first half.:
Apalach bounced right back,
driving 65 yards in seven plays to
take a 17-14 lead into halftime.
Ross again led Apalach down
field, and capped oil the drive
with an 11 yard touchdown pass,
to Evans with :39 seconds left in
the half.
Apalach's .Brian Brown-
recovered a fumbled hand-off
exchange between McFarland and
Johnson on Port St. Joe's second
play of the second half, setting up
Apalach's last scoring drive of the
night. Ross quickly, put Apalach
inside the 10 yard line with an 11
yard pass to Mike Allen, then an,
18 yard quarterback keeper. Once


inside the 10 yard line, Apalach
again changed quarterbacks. This
time it paid off, as Brandon
Langley scored on a five yard run
to give Apalach a 24-14 lead.
Brad Ray had another great
kick-off return of 48 yards.
However, -on the third play from
scrimmage, Randall Johnson
fumbled for the second time on
the night, turning the ball back
over to Apalach.
Port St. Joe Icame.to life at
that point, stopping Apalach on
three consecutive plays to force a
punt. Raye Bailey fielded the punt
for the Sharks. and raced
untouched down the sidelines for
a 70 yard touchdown. Stephen
Gaddis added the extra point with
.6:35 left in the third quarter to
pull the Sharks' within three
points (21-24).
The defense again stepped up
on the next series, and Jake
Owens came up with a big hit to
stop Brian Brown on Apalach's

HGTV "Dream House" Unveiled Tuesday

$900,000 Home Seventh to be given away by Home and Garden Network


by Tim Croft
It's a house from which
dreams are made.
At least that's what HGTV
believes as the cable network pre-
pares its annual sweepstakes to
give away a "Dream Home."
The finished abode, well let's
call it a low-slung castle by the
bay, was unveiled for media on
Tuesday, with the beginning of the
contest just a little more than two
months away.
This will be the seventh home
given away by HGTV. The contest
has grown from 1.2 million entries
in 1997 to more than 11 million
last year.
The three-bedroom, four-and-
a-half bath house, valued at
$900,000, sits on two acres on the
bay just west of Mexico Beach.
The site, nearly five miles
down .dirt roads, will, in the not-
too-distant-future, be part of a
RiverCamps development by The
St. Joe Co.
S"This is a dream version," said
Jerry Ray, vice president for corpo-
rate communications-with The St.
Joe Co. "This has everything."
From the hardwood floors of
the 2,483"square foot main level to
a bunk house, summer kitchen,
office, boat dock, pier, garage,
greenhouse and, yes, a miniature
dream house for the dog, this is
lavish living on the bay.
HGTV decided on the site after
considerable research and weigh-
ing a host of criteria, said Jenn
Thompson. director of ad sales
marketing for the home and gar-
den network.
"This was geographically
diverse from what we've done
before." Thompson said of the
serene coastalJ location. "St. Joe
was a great partner and it's close
to the water."
Like a few yards.
The 'Dream House" giveaway
fits like a velvet glove the network's
mission of providing 'ideas. infor-
mation and inspiration" for home-
owners. Thompson said.
The ultimate inspiration for
any homeowner, she added. is to
win the "Dream House."
"This place is all about ideas."
Thompson said.
And small touches.
Such as the mirrors outside
the large main glass-enclosed
shower. allowing pumping while


A view through the outdoor summer kitchen and out to the dock
and bay, including a boat house.

avoiding any mirror fogging up
because it is outside the shower.

house.
Or the indoor garden room.
with tools. water and other accou-
trements for gardening, which in
turn opens up to a path to the out-
door greenhouse.
-This house includes many
elements for coastal living." said
Kevin Fox. vice president for
RiverCamps with The St. Joe Co.
Those include metal roofs.
exposed rafter tails, designed sid-
ing. expansive porches with over-
hangs and plenty of windows and
glass doors for unobstructed -iewd
of the water.
"People are looking for a differ-
ent way to live." Fox said of the
RiverCamps concept, which com-
bines rustic settings .with luxuri-


ous amenities.
"This also has these long.
broad views of the water."
The trimmings were first class.
from the architecture of the Urban
Design Group out of Denver. Colo..
to the interior design of Linda
Woodrum of Hilton Head. S.C.
Many of the touches evidenced
in the house. Ray said, would be
incorporated in future RiverCamps
designs.
"We've learned a lot putting
this together." Ray said. 'This is
very light on the land, very envi-
ronmentally sensitive. You have
the best of both worlds."
The Dream House" sits on the
site of a RiverCamps development
that is still in the "evaluation"
stage. Ray said.
The St. Joe Co.. is set to begin
its first RiverCamps near West Bay
in Bay County sometime early next
year. he said.
Another RiverCamps is slated


to be developed near Sandy Creek
in Bay County north of Callaway.
I And while the "Dream House"
may be a bit secluded for awhile,
there is still power coming from
Gulf County on Florida Power
transmission lines. well water and
a 126-channel satellite TV.
What more does one need?
The giveaway involves more
than just a house. if this dwelling
could be called just a house.
SS0.000 worth of furnishings by
Ethan Allen and S42,000 in mis-
cellaneous equipment, such as
phones, spa. TVs. etc.
The grand prize also includes
a GMC Envoy XL, valued at
S37.500. a Hell's Bay Marquessa
boat worth S58.000 and the dog
house, which adds another
81,000.
The winner's sole responsibli-
ty. as it not inconsequential, is
paying appropriate taxes on the


booty.
Thompson said that past win-
ners have taken different routes,
some taking up residence in their
"Dream House" while others have.
simply put their winning home on
the market.
The giveaway .begins 9 a:m.,
January I and runs until 5 p.m.
February 17. Contestants can'


enter online or.by postcard.
You can enter once per day
'online and as often as you like by
mail.
An independent judging orga-
nization will select the winner by
" random drawing around March 3,
with the winner notified roughly

Even the family dog gets its own dieam house in miniature. In

Wewa Soccer Club Playerl of the Week
Peter Setterich--Peter played a great game for the Harold's Spark
Plug team last week. He really hustled and showed tremendous improve-
ment in his ball skills and control. Peter is really aggressive on the field
and shows that he is a real team player. Keep up the good work Peter!
Isaac Madrid-Isaac really hustled for the Phil's Grill team last week.
He was all over the field playing ever position. Isaac missed our first game
due to being out-of town but he never missed a beat. He looked.like he had
been playing all along. He wasn't afraid to go after the ball and got it away
'from the other team several times. Way to hustle Isaac!
S Michael Bryan, Jr. and Westley Mayo
The U10 soccer team from Wewa achieved a first recently. Westley
NMayo was playing forward against one of the Panama City teams, and he"
*made the first goal of our season. We also had another goal scored during
:the same game by Michael 'Bryan, Jr. when he was fouled in our oppo-
nents' goal area and received a penalty shot. We didn't win the game, but
we are very proud of our team's progress.

WRIGHT KNOWS..


MEXICO BEACH IS A PART OF BAY COUNTY !!!
In talking with many residents of Mexico Beach over the last several
months, I was disturbed to hear that many of you felt Mexico Beach
continues to be treated as an Outsider by Officials in Bay County
Government. While Tyndall Air Force Base seems to be, a line of
separation between Mexico Beach and the rest of the County, the truth
is that Mexico Beach is a vital and beautiful part of our county.

When elected I will make it a top priority to raise County Commission
awareness and focus on your ever-increasing needs. From talking with
several of your city leaders, I know that your fair city is facing
tremendous changes that with proper aid and direction can be managed
to retain Mexico Beach's unparalled charm while at the same time
providing economic and ecological.enhancements that will continue to
improve your quality of life. As your representative on the, County
Commission, I will work with your community leaders to improve
medical service, recreational facilities and natural resource protection. I
am also committed to seeing that more of yourtax dollars remain in
Mexico Beach and I have a sound plan on how, to accomplish this.

I look forward to having the opportunity to serve you as your
representative to Bay County. iAt voLurserice;,`

UDC News
Apalachicola Chapter #826
United Daughters of the
Confederacy met at the home of
Mrs. Jean Heathcock in Mexico
Beach on Thursday, October 17.
Highlights from the program "The
Roswell Women, by Tommie
Phillip LavCavera", given by Linda
McCain, follow.
About twenty miles north -of
Atlanta, Georgia, Roswell King
founded the town of Roswell in
1839. It was there, on the banks
of Vickery's Creek, which.empties
into the Chattahoochee River that
he and his son, Barring n, built
the Roswell Manu acturing


Company.
Four mills were operating in
Roswell when the War Between
the States began. Each factory
employed 300 to 400 people, most
of them women and girls. The fac-
tories' main production during the
war was woolen cloth for uniforms
and tent material.
In 1845 a new textile mill, the
New Manchester Manufacturing
.Coompany was established. In
time the town of New Manchester
sprang up around the mill.
During the summer of 1864
the Union Army, under the lead-
ership of General William
Sherman, advanced toward
Atlanta. Those in charge of opera-


tions of the mill, as well as resi-
dents of the town of Manchester
were escorted home where they
were kept under guard. A few
days later, the cavalry traveled to
Roswell where they burned three
factories and transported factory
workers, mostly women and chil-
dren, to Marietta where they were
placed under arrest and charged
with treason.
It was probable that their
tears were shed not only because
their means of livelihood had been
destroyed but also because their
homes had been reduced to.
ashes.
Later, approximately 400,


women and children were each
given nine days' rations, placed on
trains and sent to a distribution
point in Nashville, Tennessee.
Under the order of General
Sherman the women were to be
transferred north of the Ohio
River. When these women and'
children arrived they were
detained there and advertised to
be hired out as servants.
The women and children were
then taken to Louisville,
Kentucky. Their fate after they
reached Louisville is unclear.
Some of them were sent to
Indiana. Most of the men never
saw their families again. Most


died never knowing the where-
abouts of their children.


What did happen to the
Roswell women?

be provided by the amendment. Under the
amendment. the protections afforded those
subject to punishment for crimes under the
"cruel or unusual punishment" clause, as
that clause currently appears in Section 17
of Article I of the State Constitution. will be
the same as the minimum protections.
provided under the "cruel and unusual'

To all the many dear friends I
have made in my 15 years of visit-

Joe area:
This is to let you know that f

Need to Look After
Public Property
Dear Editor:
SOn 10-24-02 I attended a
meeting of the Apalachee Regional
Planning Council in the Hohday
Inn, Tallahassee. to hear a pre-
sentation by Windlark of the pro-'
posed moving of U.S. 98 between
Highland View and St. Joe Beach.'
I was surprised when the speaker
stated that the public now has no
access to this beach, no safe place
S to .park and -no way -down.,to the
water. Further he stated 'that
WindMark is going to provide this.
'and more if & when the moving of
98 1 is accomplished, and that
there will be no houses build
adjacent to the beach, only a pub-
lic park!
Twish to call your attention to
the sign just North of the-
WindMark sales office that says:
- "PUBLIC BEACH ACCESS", with
plenty of parking space and also
S the paved, vehicle pull-offs pro-
vided by FDOT along this.beauti-,
ful stretch of beach. I have
personally seen autos with out-of-
state. Ontario and Quebec tags
parked along U.S. 98. Haven't;
you?
On Sunday. Oct. 13, I was on
Windmark Beach at the desig-
nated PUBLIC PIERS at about 9
a.m. taking pictures when : I
noticed some children playing Ain
the water, enjoying the PUBLIC
WATERS. As I was leaving, the
WindMark security' guard was
walking down to the beach. I later
Heard that he ordered the chil-
dren out of the water & off the
PUBLIC 'BEAgH: At the [Gulf
County Cominipsion] meeting, 10-
:22-02, Commissioner Carl Fox
confirmed this and stated that he
'was going to talk to Mr. Hendry &
Mr. Smallwood about this because
Gulf County has an agreement
with WindMark that if they are
ever declared PRIVATE, the piers
must come off the PUBLIC
BEACH
In my opinion, someone had
better start looking after the pub-
lic property in Gulf County, or we
are not going to have any.
Sally Malone, A Concerned
Citizen .


health remains quite good but' the
long trip seems to be a bit much
at this point.
I have enjoyed, so. much, the
athletic programs I have been a
part of-basketball, baseball, etc.
at your schools. The kids play
their hearts out and do such a
f:'ine job at their games.
Everyone has been so warm
and caring and made me feel a
part of your community. I appreci-
ate all of the good times we've
had. You are all so friendly and
have treated me so well.
h. I will miss my trips South and
the truly Southern hospitality
that your part of the country is so
famous for. I would be happy t6
hear from any of you who would
care to write.

I Like Jeb!
Dear Editor: ,
I'm working with some fine
people at Republican Head-
quarters-we're hoping "to help
Governor Bush be re-elected. He
is a conservative-which we need.
here in Florida. as well as all over
-our country! One of the best
things about Governor 'Bush is
that he is pro-lifel He has also.
signed a bill banning partial birth
abortion, which is a' horrible
thing!
Bill McBride is a liberal "tax
and spend" Democrat. We
-certainly don't need more liberals.
Our U.S. Senate is so full of
liberals that our President car't
get bills passed that our country
needs so badly. He says he will
only put more tax on cigarettes.
There is no way he can do
everything he. wants to do with"
just an increase in the cigarette
tax.
McBride is also for abortion
on 'demand for any reason. How
sad for our little unborn children!
The rich supporters of the
Democrats, including Holywood,
are pouring money into his
campaign. They hope to get
Governor Bush out, and then they
hope that will keep our President
from being re-elected in 2004.
After eight years with Bill and
Hillary Clinton, we should thank
God for our Christian President,
who tells the truth!
Thank you,
Sincerely,
Betty Godfrey

SFall Care Tips for Your Trees and


While our lawns, gardens and
flower beds are receiving their fall
fertilizer applications, trees and
shrubs, once established in the
ground and growing well for 3-5
years should not be "fussed" over.
Studies over the last several
decades ;have shown that tree
roots extend several times the
diameter of their top spread'
beyond their drip lines, so once
they. achieve any size, they are
able to fend for themselves..
Step one to having such low
maintenance landscape is to
make sure the woody trees and
shrubs you have in your yard are
well suited for it. Two factors are
most critical to have in a plant
that will take care of itself. The
first is that the plant will have
enough light to make its. owr food,
through the process .of
photosynthesis. If it does not, it
may struggle to survive but it will
not thrive. This is -why we see,
plants that want lots of sun,
