Slightly Improved for
Gulf County over Year
by Tim Croft
Unemployment numbers for
Gulf County during the .second
quarter of the year remained well
below the state 'average and
showed slight improvement from
the same period in' 2001, accord-
ing to a report from the Universify
of West Florida. .,.
For the second quarter of this
year, the unemployment rate in'
the county was 4.97 percent, well
Under the 5.3 percent in the state
as a whole, well below the double'-
'digit numbers of just a.few years
ago and slightly better than the
4.98 percent 'of the same period'
last year, according to the Haas
Center for Business Research and
The numbers, however,
remain naggingly above those for
the 16-courity Northwest Florida
region, which recorded a 4.07 per-
cent unemployment rate during
, the year's second quarter. '
Gulf was one of 10 counties in
the region that reported improve-
ments in their unemployment
SThe county was also among 13
in the region reporting gains in the
labor force from the previous year.
Gulf County added 111 jobs to
the labor force over the same quar-
ter in ,2001, a 2.47 percent
Franklin County, with '260
new jobs for a 6.66 percent
increase, was among three coun-
ties that led the way for the region
in the area of job creation.

taxable sales in the county
dropped 2.7 percent from the same

PSJ Commtission Handles Several Major Issues
Port St., Joe city commission-
ers took care of several major
issues during the board's regular
meeting Tuesday evening.
,' First off, they agreed to adver-i
tise to annex into the city' a
stretch of property running along
Hwy. 98 to the Dixie Belle Curve
which includes most all properties
on the water side of the highway.
The proposal does not include
Highland View, but it does include,
the WindMark development
located between Butler's
Restaurant and Dixie Bell' Curve.
Legal notice of the annexation
effort and a map of the proposed
area is published on page 8B of
this edition of The Star.
Commissioners heard the
first reading of this proposed ordi-
nance Tuesday and will vote on
the question at the board's next
Sells 6.61a. Marina Out-Parcel??
Commissioners also accepted
a contract proposal from local
businessmen Rex Buzzett and
Roy Smith to purchase 6.61 acres-
of the marina out-parcel property
that the city board has been
attempting to market.
Buzzett and Smith initially
made an offer on approximately
two acres between 1st Street and
2nd Street along Baltzell Avenue,
But, they made. an offer on the
entire 6.61-acre tract after com-
missioners expressed that past
request for proposals had been
advertised as independent parcels,
and the land they were interested
in is within Parcel "B"of the offer-
Buzzett and Smith offered
$782,250 for the 'acreage and
-agreed to start construction
within 18 months and be sub-
stantially complete within 30
months of the purchase date.
The catch to all of this is that -
the St. Joe Company has first
right of refusal on the marina out-
parcels as part of their agreed
contract to operate the Port St.
John Hendry was present at
the meeting representing the St.
Joe Company. He stated that the
company has been working on a
plan for the out-parcels since the
city called for RFPs on the prop-
erty. He told board members if
they started the clock ticking (by
accepting a purchase proposal)
then the St.. Joe Company would
react and respond within the 30-
day contractual period.
He also noted that the St. Joe
Company would be willing to work
with any potential offers made for
the property that the city sees as
a bonafide option. ,
,The 30-day clock will start
running when the St. Joe
Company receives formal word of
the accepted offer for the prop-
erty. Over the next 30 days the,
future development picture of the
marina's out-parcels will probably
begin to take shape as the St. Joe
Company outlines its proposal for

One of the most uneventful
portions of the meeting was also

and wastewater containment area
designated a Brownfield site.
Part of that process .calls for
the city board to pass a resolution
supporting the designation of the
property as an FDEP Brownfield
Redevelopment Program site.
Under the Stone/St. Joe
request the companies would
develop a site cleanup plan with,
the FDEP. The plan would specify
how any contamination at the two
parcels will be dealt with accord-
ing to FDEP requirements.
The ultimate incentive of the
Brownfield program is for the
property to be put back to use land
jobs to be generated within the
community. Another part of this
process includes the establish-
ment of a community advisory
board consisting of representa-

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY Hunker Down With Kes. by Kesley;Colbert
Home is Good
I do hope that most everyone has paid attention to the series
ofshop At Home advertisements that have appeared in The Star
Over the past several weeks.
I've enjoyed reading each ad's message about Wvhy it benefits
us to "shop at home".
My favorite title is the ad that reads. "Guess who supports the
local Boy Scouts, Little League, etc...." More than once I have seen
where our local business, owners have helped sponsor or support
a local event or organization only to see the organizers turn
around and take the local businesses contributions and travel to
another community and buy products or goods to be used by
That will make your hair turn gray-or loose.
Many of the area's, local merchants and businessmen have
given till it plain hurts to support local projects and events.
Contrary to what may be a preconceived notion, the plight of most
small, and for that matter large. business operators is very diffi-
One only needs to look at the daily news and see the number
.of biisiniesses that are cutting back employees or shutting down
operations altogether to see that all is not rosy in the business
. I have a reputation for being somewhat frugal. In fact. some of
my closest friends and family members have used the word "tight"
when describing my purchasing antics-I prefer frugal.
What I've discovered in my continuing effort to live up to my
reputation is, you just can't beat the price, service and care you
can get purchasing goods locally.
Now, it is true there are some items that can't be purchased
locally. But what w\e will discover as time goes by. is. the more
often we purchase those items in our communities, the more busi-
ness owners will be willing to take the risk of providing and
expanding other market areas.
The theme of one of the ads states-"Money experts say that
each dollar will turn over as often as four or five times in a com-
munity like ours. which means that a dollar spent somewhere else
will take'awvay with it 84 or 85 in trade, wages, local taxes. etc.".,
This deal is sounding better. Not only will spending-doltln
our community help our friends. neighbors and relatives, but the
moneywe might spend locally recirculates. And. actually, in direct
and indirect ways is money invested back to ourselves.
If we want to see our communities improve, offer more recre-
ational services, and grow in the variety of available merchandise
then we have' to make an investment in its future also, by trading
with area businesses. In the end we'll all be better off.
A True Southerner Knows...
The best gesture of solace for a neighbor who's got trouble is
a plate of cold potato salad.
How to handle their "pot likker".
The differences between a redneck and a good oF boy.
Never to go snipe hunting twice.
Never to assume that the other car with the flashing turn sig-
nal is actually going to make a turn.
You may wear long sleeves. but you should always roll 'emr
up past the elbows.
You should never loan your tools, pickup, or gun to nobody.
This whole thing is Sam Beck's
fault. And his lovely \ife is just as
guilty. And believe you me-I'm
going to let both of them know it,
just as soon as they step foot back
in Gulf County!
Expanding The Menu!
It was -'**-pose to be a simrnple
meal And I was looking forward to
it. i didn 't even nund that I had
graciously offered to pay. I figured
it was my turn. After all. Mr. Beck
had picked up the check on the
previous ten meals.
The Becks are from New
Jersey. I try not to hold that
against them!. They come down
near 'bout every fal0 to visit and I
have come to truly love and appre-
ciate them over the years. They are
well :traveled, intelligent, have a
vast knowledge of how-the-wheel
turns-but most of all. they are
simply good folks. It is a pleasure
to be in their company. You can
readily understand why [ look for-
ward to their little forays to our
neck of the woods.
They politely invited my first
wife to join us. I was all. for that. I
had seen Dorothy Beck eat so I
knew she and Cathy were going to
have something in common right
off the bat!
But here is where the story
turns a little fuzzy. I had a busi-,
ness meeting at lunch. The Becks
were in town only for the day. COur
schedules weren't working just
right...somebody suggested we
meet in Panama Citv and have
On Friday Night!
I agreed. And then got to pon-
denng on it almost immediately.: I
go to Panama City about once
every year and a half whether I
need to or not! It's hot that I don't
like the neighboring city. They just
don't have anything that I, can't
live without! At my age I feel com-
fortable in my house, on my
couch. It takes a pretty good fire to.

that we ride over some evening;, eat
a nice dinner, catch a movie...T told
her we can eat a lot cheaper at

accommodate her just as soon as
Johnny Weissmuller and/or John

Cathy suggested we leave
early, stop and pick up a few
essentials such as toothpaste, 3
'NI penetrating oil and dog
food-then swing by the golf dis-
count place and buy Josh's spikes
before we met the Becks.
The golf store is twenty miles
out of the wayr! I couldn't believe all
the traffic. There must be a Bee
Gees concert in town. And that lit-
tle yellow "you're-about-out-6 f-
gas" light .came on before we got
half way to the place. I figured I
might. as well get a dozen Titleist

demanded that we pay BEFORE

stances I have some heavy reserva-
tions about handing over the cash
before I see the goods. But in this
case' it turned out o.k. The food
was excellent..and plentiful. That
last item was important when you
take Cathy Colbert and Dorothy
Beck out to eat! Sam and I ate
what I would call "a healthy por-
tion" moderated with a tad of deco-
rum. Both girls piled iton!r

It might have served the
cause better if she' had trans-

ears of my wife! Then she would-

enough, she used a piece of sand-

they wash their faces.
Just to keep Michelle from

they navigate the turbulent
waters of negotiations with the

Friday's renewal of the Port St.

ball rivalry, found E.xhibit 1 on

In 'bullet points, the flier
noted that the average pay for
teachers in the county is.. well
below the state average while
some support personnel are the
lowest paid in the state, that an
increase in insurance premi-
ums will devour the 2 percent
pay raise being offered by the
district and that administrative
costs have risen in the district
while teachers are taking flight
for higher paying jobs in neigh-
boring counties or states..
"It's an expression of the
level of frustration among the
teachers and support person-
nel," said Tom Wazlavek, execu-
tive director of the Gulf County
jEducation Association, which
represents the teachers and

The step averages about
1.8 percent across the salary
scale. About one-third of the

Teachers received only the
step increase last year.
The district is offering 2'
percent above the step, con-
tending that there is simply not
sufficient unencumbered dol-
lars' to meet the teachers'
request this year.
The sides are also apart on
the district's contribution to
health insurance as well as the
teachers' desire to join the state
employee health plan. ,
As for support personnel,,
the union and distinct are still
working out the language in the
first collective bargaining con-
tract for non-instructional
The union has made a
salary offer similar to that from
the teachers, but district nego-
tiators have yet to counter that
The lack of progress on the,
salary issue has compelled dis-
trict employees to find new
avenues to state their case.
The first came two months
ago when a petition was distrib-
uted and signed by some 70-75
percent of teachers stating that
the teachers would not take
less than a 4 percent raise
above the step.
And last week, the flier dis-
tributed at the football game
laid out the case that while the
district's schools are all "A" or
"B" schools under the state's
grading system, the district has
more interest in spending on
items such as new mowing
tractors, costing $19,000, than
providing substantive raises for

nated from observing regotia-
tions in Jackson County.
There, teachers and sup-
port personnel Padistributed
leaflets throughout the commu-
nity and attended School Board
meeting en miasse to express
their discontentment with the
speed and tenor of negotiations.
Ultimately, the Jackson
County School' Board settled
with the teachers, raising its
insurance contribution 'and
providing healthy raises.
Wazlavek : said district
employees decided to mount a
similar campaign. though he:,
said it was the decision or .the
teachers and support,personnel
to do so, a decision made with-
out his knowledge.
"We want to inform, remind
the public that they have good
public schools in the county
and that the,board will not pro-
vide a decent pay raise,"
Wazlavek said. "Beyond that we
want to tell the School Board
we aren't going away."
The union estimates it
would take roughly $200,000 to
provide teachers and support
personnel with a 4d percent
raise above the step increase. d
Wazlavek has presented
district negotiators with a pre-
liminary review of the budget
that he said shows wherethe
district could find about
$120,000 by budgeting to what
was spent during the previous
However, district negotia-
tors have argued that the
money is simply not in this
year's budget to provide the
raises teachers seek.
They have urged the union
to work collaboratively with
them to get what money ,is
available on the table for this
year, with an eye on providing
additional raises and benefits

The annual battle for the Gulf

Sharks Earn Berth In Play-offs
With last Friday's 21-7 win
over the Wewahitchka Gators the'
PSJ Sharks brought total confu-
sion to the district's play-off sta-
tus. The win forced a three-way tie
between Blountstown, Wewa and
Port St. Joe for runner-up in dis-
trict 2-1A. Liberty County has
secured the first place spot.
All three teams met at Shark
Stadium Monday night to compete
in a tiebreaker for second place
and when the dust had settled St.
Joe had taken a 7-0 win to earn a
Wewahitchka and Blounts-
town met first in the tiebreaker
"That long pass broke our
back," said Coach Cohen. He was
alluding to a 61-yard TD toss from
Blountstown quarterback Huck
Montgomery to receiver Delveron
Garrett on a third and long play.
Blountstown scored again late in
the quarter after Wewa failed to
convert a first down on a 4th and
three play. Blountstown won the,
first portion of the tiebreaker
Next came the Sharks, who
had lost to Blountstown early in
the season 42-10.
"Since the first Blountstown
game we've gotten better with
each week," said Shark coach
"Our defense was unbeliev-
able," he added after the game.
The Sharks and Tigers battled
to a scoreless tie during their tie-
breaking quarter forcing a Kansas
tie breaker series to decide the
Blountstown won the toss
and elected to defend. The Sharks
lined up for their four-down series
on the 10-yard line. After failing to
move the ball on two consecutive
plays quarterback Kenny
McFarland found tight end :Josh
Daily in the end zone to give the
Sharks a 7-0 .lead. Stephen
Gaddis kicked the extra point.
"I can't take credit for that
.call... Coach Kenny (Parker) and
Coach Chuck (Gannon) were
telling me-the tight end's wide
open," Palmer said.
When Blountstown' lined up
for their turn at the 10-yard line
the Shark defense was in a frenzy.
Raye Bailey and A.J. Spires made
consecutive tackles for losses
-forcing the Tigers into a passing
offense. The defensive backfield
then proved they were up to the
task holding Blountstown score-
less and preserving a 7-0 win for

SThe P/E Ratio: A Great Investment Tool
By: Andy Wilkinson, Financial
When it's time to evaluate
Investment decisions, investors
need to know how to use every
measurement Iol available. One
of the most important yardsticks
to evaluate a stock's price and its
prospects is the price/earnings
ratio, or simply the P/E ratio or
A common analytic tool that
.reflects investor enthusiasm
about a stock in comparison with
the market'as a whole, the P/E
ratio is determined by dividing the
price of a stock by its earnings per
share .for the last 12 months. For
example, if the price of a stock is
$100 and the company earned
$10 for each share of itscommon
stock outstanding, the P/E ratio ,
is' 10 to 1. Another way of saying
this is that the stock in this case
is selling at 10 times earnings, or,
at a "multiple" of 10. The greater
the multiple, the .higher-priced
the stock is thought to be; that is,
the stock is expensive in relation
to Its earnings.
You will find a stock's P/E
* listed in many daily newspapers'
stock quotations. When checking
this number, it's Important to
understand that the P/E listed in
the newspaper is based on the
last 12 months' earnings,
However, also bear in mind that
when discussing a stock,
investment professionals gen-
erally refer to the estimated
earnings of the current year and
the followVing year..
Every industry group also can
be represented by an average P/E
ratio. Your financial advisor or the
current "Value Line Investment
Survey" published by Value Line
can provide the current average of

investment? Typically, young, fast
growing companies with multiples

attractive. ','.. '

Historically, there have be
cases where lower P/E, stock
have appreciated to ,a great
extent than higher P/E stocks.
addition, the greater appreciate
-of the lower P/E stock may be
further enhanced by higher
dividend yields, sometimes two to
three times greater than that of
high P/E stocks. Of course, past

Investment experts caution
that if you do decide to purchase
a low P/E stock, you would do
well to consider a company that
has a positive growthrate, ample
cash and liquid assets: and
earnings that are expected 'to
remain fairly constant. '

of PI/E ratios- and a continuing

Nature Conservancy Friend
Angus Gholson Honored by FSU
The Nature Conservancy's
Florida Chapter is pleased to
announce that a newly
documented species of liatris
found on one of its preserves has
been named after longtime
volunteer and renowned plant
expert Angus Gholson.
The new liatris species was
first discovered several years ago
at the Conservancy's Apalachicola
Bluffs and Ravines Preserve
where Gholson has studied and
worked to protect plants for years.
After scientifically document-
ing arid officially registering the -
new species, Florida State

of science and conservation, is
happy' to see Gholson honored.
"Any botanist who comes to this
part of the country wants to meet
Angus or see his herbarium. He
knows more about plants than
anyone," Seamon said. Gholson's

Building A Better
Artificial Reef Assn.
Goes Stainless with
by Tim Croft
Fishing can be in large part a
rather solitary past time.
Not so- when it comes to
attracting the scaly little devils.
The Mexico Beach Artificial
Reef Association provided more
evidence of the latter recently
when the group deployed stainless
steel cylinders for three more reefs,
all with the helping hands of sev-
eral area businesses.
Late last month, the MBARA
completed deployment, begun
before Hurricane Isidore pounded
ashore, of 18 steel cylinders into
the Car Body permit area.
If everything goes right, in six
months those cylinders, split into
* several reefs, will be teeming with
bait fish, the lowest and first link
in the underwater food chain.
The cylinders, lined with stain-
less steel, weighed, on average, 18
tons apiece, were 10-12 feet. in
diameter and roughly 25 feet long.
"Those are| large items 'to be
deployed," aic Capt. Chip
Blackburn of tHe MBARA.
Requiring plenty of teamwork.
The first member of that team
was the Smurfit-Stone mill in
Panama City, which offered the
cylinders to the MBARA.
"They were going to be
scrapped," said Xelle Wyble, plant
engineer at the Smurfit-Stone mill
in Panama City. "We'd like to put
something'back into the communi-
"We get enough bad publicity
in the community, I thought it
would be nice to get some good
publicity for a change."
Besides, Wyble added, "I took

Wyble had workers cut 'holes
in the cylinders, mimicking the
outline of the popular concrete reef
balls, a kind of large wiffle ball,
which the MBARA has used in
other reef-building programs.
-"It provides good places for the
fish to come and go," Wyble said.
Getting the cylinders to the
company's dock in Panama City
was the easy part, though..

said of the narhing requests.
Blackburn said the cylinders
were strapped welded together, two
to a bundle, then taken out in the
gulf. the weld broken and cylin-
ders dropped overboard .by Coastal
Reef Builders out of Pensacola.,
"They are valuable as reef
material because. they are: so
hea\y,'" Blackburn said. "Some of
the steel was three inches thick.
(Smurfit-Stone) has been very
interested and helpful."
Blackburn rioted that a ,single
reef ball, weighing 2,000-3,000
pounds, costs about $300.
The total cost to the MBARA of
deploying the 18 total cylinders
was roughly $.12,000, or a fraction
of !what it would have cost to
deploy reef balls sufficient to equal
the total weight df the cylinders.
And as a 2001 study showed
that coral reefs in the world oceans
have declined 27 percent, the eco-
nomic payoff for such reef-building
efforts is considerable.
A 1998 study by two Florida
State University professors and an
economist with the National
Oceanic' and Atmospheric
Administration looked at theeco-
nornic impacts of reef restoration
in the five-county area from
Pensacola-to'Mexico Beach ._
They estimated that divers and
fishermen expend 1.684 million,

Constructing economic models

reefs they estimated the annual
economic impact for reef systems
in Bay County to be $11.72 mil-
Taking in all five counties, the
total value over the estimated 20-
year life span of a reef system is
$656 million with an overall
investment of $5 million.
Employing other economic
models to examine travel expenses
and other costs, the study estimat-
ed the economic impact of reefs in
the five-county area at $801 mil-
lion to $1.68 billion over the life of
the reef systems.
Thus for every dollar spent on
reef restoration the financial gain,
depending on economic model,
would be anywhere from $131 to
The MBARA is still pursuing,
and raising money for, the secure-
ment of some equipment, particu-
larly pre-pressed concrete, from
the Port St. Joe mill site.
Blackburn-' said CCC Group
Inc., the company demolishing the
mill, seemed "quite cooperative."
Taken in total, Blackburn said
the MBARA has succeeded in, if
you will, building a better fish lure
in its five years of existence.
"We are proud of it,"
Blackburn said. "We've done a lot
more than we thought we were
going to do when we started."
