It is worth noting that those
teachers with less than 23 years
experience will not actually realize
a 3 percent raise this year.
And this is where the deal
As part of the give and take
between the sides, the teachers
with- less than 23 years agreed to
take salary bumps effective Nov. 1
in order for the district to be able
to come up with the additional
funds to provide a 3 percent raise.
Therefore, the additional
dollars made available by the
School Board will be 'over nine
checks, instead of 12, so teachers
will see tw6-thirds of the increase,,
or in reality, a 2 percent bump.
However, come next July 1,
that 3 percent raise will become a

currently makes $30,000. The

. contribute $225 per month to
each teacher's health insurance.
The total cost of the package
for the- district is., between .,
$187,000 and $190,000.
"I'm not completely satisfied ,
because, frankly, when you
consider the insurance and that
they didn't get a raise last,year,
they are actually falling behind,"
Wazlavek said, noting the rise in
overall insurance rates.

said Superintendent of Schools
Jerry Kelley. "I'm excited' .
During a workshop following
the reorganizational meeting,
Kelley outlined issues that he
would like the board to take up in
the coming months.
On the legislative agenda
side, Kelley, who said he had,
already had discussions with Rep.
Allan Behse, R-Panama City,
noted that the most important
issue for the district was to
restore full funding for sparsity.
Sparsity is a categorical fund
by which the Legislature had pro-
vided dollars to rural counties, or
* those with small population
I, n the politically-charged
environment of education fund-
ing. however, the Legislature has ,
funded sparsity at lesser and
lesser amounts in recent years.
"Our big issue is sparsity, to
fully fund sparsity." Kelley said.

GARC Holds Annual Awards
and Appreciation Dinner
In a heartwarming celebra-
tion recently the Gulf Association
for Retarded Citizens (ARC) and
held its annual appreciation din-
ner. The organizations receive
such a tremendous support from
community members, businesses,
and organizations in Gulf County
that they take this means each
year to offer their heartfelt
thanks. A delicious dinner was
served to guests, employees, and
In its 26th year of operation,.
ARC provides educational pro-
grams, service systems and sup-
S port for the developmentally dis-
abled in our area. In that time
frame they have served over 100
developmentally disabled indiind-
uals and have provided custodial,
lawn and litter patrol services
throughout Port St. Joe.
Three years ago the agency,
purchased a new home to provide
residential services to eight devel-
opmentally disabled adult males.
Gulf House, located on Peters St.,
is known by those involved
statewide in developmentally dis-
abilities as one of the finest group
homes in the entire state. In the'
home the guys are offered a nor-
mal, safe, healthy and happy life,
and live as one big family.
In 1990, the agency contract-
ed with the Transportation
Disadvantaged Commission to
provide transportation services to
individuals throughout Gulf
County. What began with a'tele-
phone, a notebook and pencil, an
adding machine, one van, and two
drivers has emerged into a large
operation which includes its own
director, Glenda Whiting, two
administrative staff, 13 drivers,
and 14, vehicles which provided
20,000 trips to some 2,000 indi-
viduals and logged 300,000 miles ,
Their passengers include the
elderly, low income, developmen-
tally disabled, physically or men-
tally impaired, children and'non-
sponsored individuals of all ages.
Dianna Harrison, director of
the GCARC, said "Organizations
such as ours make us all aware of
what our role as human beings
is-what we owe to each other
and to the future generations. We
are doing one small task at a

The firm relocated here from Marietta, Georgia and specializes in custom designed wood flooring. Their
showroom floor is finished in a multitude of different woods and designs highlighting the varied designs
available. Their designs have won national awards and appear in homes and businesses throughout the
United States. In the past they have dealt primarily with contractors, but in their new location they will
also have a retail business selling to the public.
Lee Fontaine and Gus Griffin, employees at Decorative Flooring, put
the polishing touches on the showroom floor as they prepare for the
grand opening last week.
FWC Needs Help in

Sgt. Arnie McMillion. a FWC
investigator. said the bear was,
shot with a high-powered rifle on
a private huntiun lease juist off
County Road 20 between Whi'e
City and Overstreet. One of the
members of the huntine- lease
found the bear and contacted the
FWC. The land wv.here the bear
was killed is owned by St. Joe
'The bear xwas found 43 feet
from a treestand on the property
and apparently killed feeding near
a deer feeder." said McMillion. "We
believe someone knows who killed
the bear and we're asking for the
public's help to determine who
that individual is."

By Lori Price
Many parents; educators and
handwriting advocates worry that
schools no longer .put enough
emphasis on penmanship. They
feel that with even preschoolers
pecking on keyboards, schools are
devoting too little time and ,
attention to handwriting. The
problem doesn't stop there, they
stress; it's showing up in
workplaces in the form of illegible
-paperwork, poor. communication.
bad spelling and lack of discip- -
Educators with a more
relaxed view of, handwriting say,
that' all exaggerauon. Legibility
Sand clear communication are
what matters most when students
write. Students 6ften find revising
their work easier and fasterwhen
using a word processor.
While more than seventy-five
percent of schoolwork is still done
by hand and tests usually include
essay questions, there's little
question schools devote less time
to handwriting today. Hand-
-' citing was an integral part of the
curriculum at one time, but by
the 1960s, educators began 'to
emphasize individual expression
of ideas over perfect handwrintmg.
Today, most public schools stop,
teaching handwriting long before
children lea Te elementary school..
HandwritinQ is still con-
sidered a reflection of one's
character. personality and even
alues. Handwritiung analysts are
sometimes used to do profiles of
prospective hires,. analyze fraud
and help attorneys select jurors
Handwriting is intimately tied to
one's self-esteem. Therefore,
S advocates are concerned that if
sloppy penmanship is accepted.
students will learn to accept
themselves at a different level.
Handwriting purists also
maintain there is a link between
handwriting and literacy.
Research shows the fine-motor
control demanded by handwriting
stimulates the left side of the
brain which is responsible for
language and reading skills.
When a child's handwriting is in
chaos, it's almost guaranteed that
he is struggling, trying to cope
with what he's thinking, trying to
get that thought on paper.
Many teachers say' they have
seen no noticeable change in
students' handwriting. Some
children have good penmanship
and some don't, just as it has
always been, they contend. They
are more concerned about what
the student is writing about and
whether the students are
expressing themselves clearly.
For now, students do lessons
with pencils,. pens and computers.
oblivious to the arguments about
handwriting. I'll leave the reader
to choose sides. but here are a few
interesting facts to consider.

turalGas 8 Safety
Natural gas supplies vitally needed
energy to thousands of homes,
businesses and industries in Florida.
Energy, whether it be in the form of gas,
electricity, oil, water, etc., when uncon-
trolled can be dangerous.
Even though a record of safe opera-
tions has been established over the
years by. the regulated gas industry,
knowledge of the information contained
in this ad can assist you in recognizing a
potentially hazardous condition and take
appropriate action to safeguard life and
0. What Are Some Of The Character-
istics Of Natural Gas A User
A. Natural gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons
composed mainly of methane and exhibits
the following characteristics: .
1. Odorless-an odor is added to this gas.
2. It is lighter than air and if released will,
'rise into the atmosphere unless trapped:.
3. It is nontoxic. However, as with any burn-:
:ng process, incomplete combustion will
form carbon monoxide which is toxic.
4. It is colorless.
5. It has a flammability range of from 40.o to
14% '(approximate values by volume of .
gas to air).
Q. Is Natural Gas Dangerous?
A. Gas, like all forms of energy, .is capable of :
doing damage and must be used properly.
However, the experience with natural gas
use shows it to be more safe than other
.energy sources which you use in your home
,or business. .
Q. What Should You Know About Gas
A. 1. Natural gas doesn't normally have an
2. A substance is added by your gas com-
pany to give natural gas a "rotten-egg"
smell should it escape.
3. Become familiar with Ihe smell. Should
you detect this odor, it doesn't positively
tell you that there is a gas leak: but this is
sufficient reason for you to call your gas
company and have them investigate.
Q. What Additional Ways Can You
Detect A Gas Leak?
A. 1. When the ground is wet, you may detect
a leak by seeing bubbles rising through
puddles of water in a uniform manner.
2. A larger leak of gas from underground
piping may be able to be seen by sand
blowing around a small hole in the
ground; il may be felt just as you may leel
air leaking from a small hole in a tire or
air hose; and if it is a large leak, a noise
can be heard similar to air leaking.
3. A flame at or around appliance piping
other than at the burner indicates leak-
Q. The Fact That A "Rotten-Egg",
Odor Is Detected, Does Than Mean
That There Is A Natural Gas Leak?
A: No. But.this. should be checked to assure
that the odor isn't an indication of a ga's
leak. Call your gas company and report it.
Odors similar to that of natural gas may
come from the following:
1. A sewer system.
2. A water aeration plant which has a sul-,
3. Swamps or bogs.
4. Areas where the land has been filled, etc.
Q. If There Is A Gas Leak,'Will You
Always Smell An Odor?
A. No. If gas leaks from an above ground pipe,
there should always be an odor. However,
such as a leak from an underground service
line or main, the ground acts as a filter and
can remove the odor from the gas.
Q. Why Isn't A Gas Odor Smelled
When the Gas Is Burned On A Gas
Range or Furnace?
A. The material used to odorize the gas is
flammable and is consumed in the process
* of burning. If your equipment is properly
adjusted you should not detect the odor
when you are using your appliances.
0. What Can One Do To Reduce The
Possibility Of An Accident?
A. First keep the emergency telephone num-
ber of your gas company handy. A good
place to keep this number is to write it down
in the front of your telephone book along
with other emergency telephone numbers
such as fire, police, etc.
Other things which should be done to
improve safety as well as conserve energy-
1. Teach children that they are not to play
with any appliances in the home.
2. Clean the burners and have them
checked for proper adjustment periodi-
3,. Repairs, installations and removal of
appliances are jobs for qualified persons.
Use only qualified people to do this work.
S 4. If lighting of an appliance is required,
ALWAYS light match and hold at ignition
point of burner before you turn on the
5. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for
operation and care of gas appliances.
6. Never take a chance. If you think you
smell gas, call your gas company. -
Q. What Should be Done When One
Believes He Smells Gas?
A. There are many possible conditions which
could be encountered, thus it isn't-possible
to give specific instructions for every situa-
Stion: The following examples provide gener-
al instructions which should assist:
Y1 1. If a slight odor is detected in a localized
area or room of a building-do not use a
match or other flame in the area; call the
gas company immediately.
2. If a strong odor is detected in a building
or other confined space-do not operate
electrical switches, light matches or use
an open flame; however, do open win-
dows -and doors to ventilate the area
(caution: don't turn on exhaust fans)
leave the building and call the gas com-
3. If a strong odor is detected in a building
and/or a hissing sound is heard--'do not
operate electrical switches, lights or
other devices; do evacuate the building'
leaving exit doors open on your way out,
warn persons to stay clear of Ihe building
and call the fire department and gas
company immediately from another loca-
4. If the odor of gas is detected outside (in
the yard, at the sidewalk, etc.)-immedi-
.- ately call the gas company.
SAFETY IS YOUR ..BUSINESS
EDUCATE YOUR, FAMILY AND
FRIENDS ABOUT THE PRECAUTIONS
TO TAKE WHEN THEY BELIEVE THEY
SMELL THE ODOR OF GAS.
CAUTION: The term "Gas" is used by the
news media and others to include a variety of
products such. as liquidified petroleum gases
(propane, butane), gasoline and natural gas.
Each product has its own characteristics which
differ from one another, thus the information
given in this advertisement is applicable only to

hair, weaving through Odom's life.
He had thought for some time
about getting cleaned up a bit,
shedding. part of his previous
persona as an outlaw, by cutting
his, long hair.
However. during the summer
he was told that if he let it grow a
few more months he would have
enough to donate to Locks of Love.
So last Wednesday. in time for
his ordination, he went to N-Style
to have his locks sheared.
It struck me as a good thing
to do, Odonm said. It felt like it
was 'time; I had thought about it
several times. I had a peace about
