Dies In Fall
by Tim Croft
A Thanksgiving holiday on the
beach turned tragic last Friday as a
young qeorgia resident was killed
in a horsing accident.;
Monica Averhoff, 12,. of
Norcross, was horseback riding
along the beach on Cape San Bias
early Friday afternoon with a group
-of about eight people, including her
nifie-year-old sister.
The group was riding near the
campgrounds when they decided to
"run" their horses a bit, according
to preliminary witness reports given
to Sheriff deputies. '
According to the Gulf County
Sheriffs,Office. Averhoff was some-
how 'thrown from the horse while

A mail delivery service, with connections
direct to Santa at the North Pole, has been

contains a self-addressed stamped envelope.
The letters will then be forwarded to The
Star for printing in our Christmas issue

The deadline for mailing Santa letters to
receive a reply from the jolly old gentleman will
be 5:00 p.m. on Monday, December 16th. So, get
busy writing kids!

the planning and environmental
work done to date on' the various
alternatives for the Gulf to Bay
Highway 'and' improvements
planned for U.S. 98 and to express
views concerning the work to date.
"\e are looking to get public
input," said Tommy McDonald of
Opportunity Florida. "I'm sure;
there are folks who have some envi-
ronmental issues. Maybe some
people don't want the county to
grow. This. is an opportunity for


those people to air their feelings."
"The first half of the meeting will
be devoted to a review of maps and'
other materials pertaining to the
alternative routes for the highway,
followed by a formal presentation
and then a period for public com-
ment.
' "We'd love to have people come
and, share. their views," McDonald
said.
People can also provide written


statements or exhibits.
That Opportunity Florida is'
hosting this meeting is a product of
the organization's work in securing
transportation funds for the eight
counties in 'Northwest Florida
which the governor proclaimed
"rural counties of critical economic
concern. ,
Through the state TOPS pro-
gram, designed to earmark millions
for new roads or to.improve existing
roadways, Opportunity Florida did


what its name implies, seized an
opportunity..
"Money was going to available
to put some roads in,'" McDonald
said. "The only thing holding Gulf
County back is that it's hard to get
to.
"This was' a project to get
behind that will help Gulf County
and in turn Washington County"
since the Gulf to Bay Highway is
seen as a connector to 1-10.


Gulf Commission Looking to Expand Gaskin Park;


Considering Land Swap for Additional 3.76 Acres


Gulf County Commissioner
Carmen McLemore has a plan to,
almost double the size of Gaskin.
State Park and his fellow board
members are in support of the idea.
McLemore proposed to the
Board during their last meeting


,-(November 2) that they consider
trading 20 acres of county proper-
ty, located just behind Wetappo
landfill off .Highway '22, for 3.76,
acres currently owned by Joe ;
Sewell and located just behind the
existing park area.


Commissioner Carmen McLemore shows land swap areas.


Gaskih Park is comprised of
2.82 acres along the Apalachicola
River. It has been the beneficiary of
major renovation aimed at year-
round access for local residents to
the waterway.
The site was used as home
base for this year's flathead catfish
tournament but as McLemore
pointed out, "We need more room."
The site being proposed for
trade is a low area behind the land-
fill, and while it is considerably
more property than the Gaskin
Park site, McLemore surmized that
the land is not worth as much per
acre.
What the additional acreage
would do is give more parking room
for boaters and visitors, as well as
allow room for future "expansion.
"We've outgrown the park,"
McLemore stated.
Commissioners unanimously
agreed to the proposed land swap
pending Gulf County property
appraiser, Kesley Colbert verifying
that the land values are close.
While the board was on the
subject of waterways, Commis-
sioner Billy Traylor suggested to
the board members that they con-
sider reactivating the Dead Lakes
Water Management Board.


As Traylor explained, the board
was very active when the Dead
Lakes Dam was in place but
since its removal has become

CBRA Update
by Tim Croft
County officials met on
Tuesday with William Harrison, the
consultant hired to work with the
county regarding the CBRA desig-
nation on Cape San Blas and
Indian Pass.
The gist of the meeting was that
federal administrative action to lift
the CBRA designation is not likely
to be a feasible option, .leaving the
most viable course to lobby for leg-
islative edict to lift the designation.
The downside is that working
through Congress likely extends
the time frame for a resolution
from as little as six months to as
long as 12-24 months.
County officials intend to travel
to Washington D.C., sometime in
the next several weeks to meet with
stakeholding agencies and mem-
bers of the Florida Congressional
delegation.

Great Weekend



Planned

The 3rd Christmas on the Coast weekend is set to get'
under way.
Shortly after last year's event work was started to orga-
nize this year's events.
Santa's visit just prior to the parade on Saturday will be
the major highlight of the weekend, but another major addi-
tion to this year's event will be a free concert by one of
Southern Gospel's most prestigious groups, the Dixie
Echoes.
The lighting of the Christmas tree ceremonies on Friday
night, lighted boat parade on Saturday evening, open house
by downtown merchants and local businesses, pictures ,with
Santa, entertainment, carnival, rides, moonwalk; vendors
.and fantastic sales being offered by local business owners
will fill out the weekend.
The ConstituItion City Business Association has outdone
themselves this year to biing together the biggest and best
ever "Christmas onr the ,Coast Weekend.:
:.A.few weeks ago I mentioned in this space how much local
btisinesses and merchants contributed to the community.",
Events such as this are just one more example of how efforts
by them'bring something special td the community. :,
This year's event is being anchored along Reid Avenue in
Port St. Joe: right in the heart of the city's business district.
The entire street from Highway 71, where the carnival will be,
to First Street where food vendors will locate and back to the
center of Reid Avenue and Third Avenue where entertainment
will be held will be transformed into a walking mall atmos-
phere where ,local merchants and ,vendors will be ready to
help fill those Christmas lists.
As we enter this- special weekend I would like to extend
appreciationT6'all the local-businesses and merchants who
joined together in making this event so special for all to
enjoy.
Christmas Isn't Just for Kids
"It is far better to give then receive." These words are so
true', as I'm sure most all of you know.
One of my absolute favorite programs has been, the
Christmas for Kids program. Jim Newton was the father of
this idea a few years ago and now. here we are. three years
later and looking at a ,goal of 815,000 to help-make
Christmas extra special for.a special group of people.
Jim has left our community, seeking work in his field of
expertise over the past year. I don't mind telling you I have
been concerned as to whether the program would come
together this year.
In fact,.Father Tom Guido came by the office to visit with
his Baptist buddy a few times, and we had prayer meeting in,
search of someone to hell fill the role of "organizer" of this
program.
And then along canie Jerry..'.erry Stokoe, that 'is-alias.
Mr. organization-know-how-to-get-things-done man.
Not only has Jerry agreed to head the program this 'year
but he has expanded it to include more, than just kids' This
year the program will be expanded to senior citizens.
Also special for this year is that the' Grilf County Senior
Citizens will be helping with the program,...We, all know they
are a special group of Santa's helpers.
This community owes a great big thank you to Jim Newton
and his family for the work they did with this program and
another thank you to Jerry, the Senior Citizens and many
others who will give of their time, talents, and resources to
niake this Christmas extra special fora group that otherwise
may not experience Christmas at all...Thank You!!!


I don't know much at all about
the Reverend Brent Vickery. But I
can tell you this-he ain't going to
have a job much longer!
Listen, he's a Baptist preacher
that apparently hasn't gotten the
"message" yet!
I don't think the ole boy knows
us Baptists1 today are shying away
from those "blood sermons". Wg
like the eighteen minute, three
:point, 'condensed, feel-right, up
lifting, 'ain't God go6d", how much
better we're doing, it than them
"other folks" sermons. We can go
-home and eat the roast beef in,
blessed' contentment. Heaven for-
bid if you get to preaching too long,
and too loud on how Chnristans
truly ought to be living! ,
I kinda got to hear him by
accident. '


Miss Ina '0dum's elder son.
David. is preaching up at the
Gateway Baptist Church in
Blountstown. He got all fired up
and decided to have a revival. He
called brother Brent to come and
deliver whatever God laid on his
heart ,
I should have known some-
thing wasn't right when I found
out the services were going to run
all week. It appeared that these
folks hadn't gotten the word that
Baptists had gone to' the three day
mini-rivivalette....,
Miss Ina wanted to go "at least
one night".
I thought we might as well get
on up there early and get it over
with. I .wheeled her up to
Blountstown on the very first
night-she wheeled me down to
the very second row! Listen, I
could smell the collards and
onions on the choir members. I
could make oupt the wood grain in
the pulpit. .I'd never seen church
this sp up-close and personal!
Before I :could mount my
protest Buddy Caswell came put


and we commenced singing
Washed in the Blood, Nothing but
the Blood and Power in the Blood.
He was in there thick as thieves
with the rest of em! I saw more
blood flow in the opening moments
of that revival than most Baptists
under thirty-live had seen in a life-
time!
Bro. Brent got up, looked me
right in the eye-he couldn't-hard-
ly miss me, one more pew up arid I
would have been in his lap--and
went to telling me how as a
Christian I was living with the
hogs in a far country!.
I I see now why they take up the
love offering before the evangelist
speaks!,
But'as I was driving Miss Ina,
home I had to admit he was pretty
much right on target with my life. I
know the love of the Father. I have
experienced the grace of the Son.
But the reality of it-is-it's hard to
serve. them and the pigs: at the
same time....
T,went back the second night
because Miss Ina wanted to. And I
figu red Bro. .Brent was going to get


back to Baptist preaching and
tell me about the goodness and
nghteousnes- of Chnst and maybe
get on some of those, folks that did-
n't go to church as much as I do.
Miss Ina had me back in the
second row. Bro. Brent looked
nght at me again and told me the
rich man in Hell had won more
people to the Lord than I had!
Folks, I'm getting a tad
uncomfortable here. And. I'm just
the chauffeur!
The third night Buddy accused
me of ignoring those less fortunate
souls that live within the shadows
of the church steeple. Arid Bro'.
Brent asked me if I was listening
when God spoke. I'm telling you-
aint no Baptist church that I krow
of going to keep guys around long
when they go to meddling that
-deep!

ting warmed up. You woh't believe '

by Tim Croft
Almost three years to the date
since his fateful encounter with a
Marine Patrol officer. Lamar
Moore continues to tilt at the
windmills of justice.
He figures .to be leaning for
some months to come.
Last month,' :Circuit Court
Judge Glenn Hess. granted a
directed verdict in ,favor of the
state in Nloore's civil case for dam-
ages resulting from an injury alter
he was stung by a sting ray while
being questioned byMarine Patrol,
officer Thomas Lee.
The directed verdict came
after Moore's attorney, Ronald
MowTrey. had presented his case,
and before the state had put forth
any witnesses or the case was
sent to the jury.
And it will mean that Mowrey
will be paying a visit to the august
marbled halls of the First District
Court' olAppeals in Tallahassee in
an effort to' overturn Hess's deci-
sion.
"This is an absolute improper
granting of a directed verdict,"
Mo Tey said from his Tallahassee
office. He ignored case law. I
don't know what the agenda is."
lMowrevy 'further noted that
while it is common for one side of
a legal case or another to request
a directed verdict once the other
side has laid out its :ase. it is very
rare (or the motiofl to be granted:
"Ninety-nine percent 'of the
time it is not granted," Mowrey
Said, "IJt is much rarer. (to be
granted) in civil cases than crnmi-
nal cases."
Hess, however, said Mowrey's,
central argument could not be"
carried by, case law.: '
"I did not find that the theory
of the plaintiffs case could be,
sustained as a matter of law,"
Hess said. noting that by law he
could not allow the case to go for-
ward.
The case, and Hess's decision,
center around one word, the defi-
nition of custody as contained in
the law books.
To understand the entire
case, however, we take the Way
Back Machine to Dec. 7, 1999.
On that day, Moore and three
buddies were fishing in the bay off.
Port St. Joe when Lee approached
in his officially-marked Marine
Patrol boat.

Lee had the men pull in their nets.
As he was complying with the
request, Moore was badly stung
by a sting ray on his. ankle, a
Sound that,' according to wit-'
,nesses, became badly swollen and
bled profusely.
Over a period, of ume, the.

Moore was ultimately charged
with fishing .with illegal nets, fail-

and not having the proper

During' a bench trial the fol-
lowirng spnng County Court Judge'
Robert MNloore found Lamar Moore,

He also particularly, 'noted
that Lee had originally
approached the boat due to the
lack of markirig buoys, though
such buoys were no longer
required by law, of which Lee
seemed unaware, even at trial.
After his acquittal Moore filed
suit in'civil court seeking dam-
ages, $133,000, on various
charges, ranging from negligence,
false arrest, violation of civil rights
,and other allegations.
The civil rights case ended up
in federal district. court where it
was rendered moot by Lee's filing

DOT Says No to Turn Lane-Commission Doesn't Like Answer


Port St. Joe city commis-
sioners have spent a portion of
seemingly every meeting for the
past several months talking about
a need for the turn lane at the
new light located at the
intersection of Highway 98 and
First Street.
The board finally received an
answer to their efforts Tuesday
evening when Preble-Rish
Engineer Bill Kennedy reported
back what DOT had determined
after a traffic study the
intersection.
"They said no way does that
intersection warrant a ti n lane,"
Kennedy told the board.
That answer was not what the
board wanted to hear.
Commissioner Benny Roberts has
been most outspoken on the
issue. "We need to get their.names

would take the request to

effort to help the city. He also
requested that a record of the
number of wrecks that have

Kennedy reported to the
board that a notice to proceed has
been given to the contractor for
the $318,000 project. The main
focus will be to replace a
substandard 18" stormwater
drainage pipe with a 48" pipe. The
new outfall should take care of
flooding problems -in the
community in times of heavy rain
and storm events.
Kennedy also cautioned that
some of the work will require
heavy equipment and major
demolition of the roadway. The


contractor will try to create as
little intrusion as possible during
the 'process, but there will ,be
times when residents in the area
are going to find sections of the

Draw Plans
by Tim Croft
.Proponents of renovating the
Cape San Blas lighthouse and
grounds into a museum and park
can envision where they want to
go. i
The first qtep is to determine
exactly where they are
That stride was initiated last
week as' the County Commission
approved an architect for the
assessment and design stage of
the project.
The firm of Manausa, Lewis
and Dodson out of Tallahassee
was hired, to undertake the task of
rendering a vision to paper.
"They are experienced- in this
iind of work, historical preserva-
tion," said Larry Wells, who is the
county point man for the light-
house renovation project.
'"This is the actual first step,
the first identifiable step toward
renovating the lighthouse (and
grounds)."
MLD, funded by a $35,000
state grant; will begin work imme-
diately on the first major step of
What supporters hope will be the
transformation ,of the grounds
into a museum and park which
will become .a must-see destina-
{ion for visitors to the area.
'They (MLD) are tasked to do
three things," Wells said. "One is


Ruling-
therefore was owed a reasonable
level of care for a severe and
potentially dangerous wound.
Moore, Mowrey asserted, was
hot free to leave Lee's sight to do
anything, least of all seek-medical
attention.
And since he was in custody,
he was owed a duty of care by Lee
and the-Marine Patrol, noting that
Lee had at his disposal a radio
and cell phone to summon assis-
tance not to. mention a first aid
kit. ,
Hess, in rendering his deci-
sion, disagreed, contending that
Mowrey was misinterpreting the
S .legal concept of "arrest."
They did not have the correct
-?definition of arrest," Hess said.
The judge said that arrest, or
"a law enforcement stop for ques-
tioning that would entail an' issue
of custody, becomes a Miranda
situation, requiring formal detail-
ing of an individual's right to an
attorney, etc.
He likened Moore's encounter.
with Lee to a traffic stop in which
"a law enforcement officer would
check motorists for proper license
and registration.
"That man was not under
'arrest' in terms of custody for
:purposes of incarceration.' Hess
said., "The issue was, was he
under arrest for custody terms
where duty of care was required.
He was not."
Mowrey, though, cited !a
Florida Supreme Court case in
which a man was injured after
being stopped for a broken tail-

Langston Tournament Draws Fans and Quality Basketball


by Tim Crjt.
There was 'no turkey evident
at the Gulf County JUCO
Basketball Classic last weekend.
The two-day tournament at
Port St. Joe High School featured
peach baskets: full of quality bas-
ketball and raised dollars for the
Norris D. Langston Youth
Foundation.
'"I was pleased with it," said
Dr. David Langston, president and
CEO of the foundation. "It's gotten
better. It's not where we want to
take it, but I think it's something,
we can build on."
V .,


The hoops play was first-rate,
particularly for an early juncture
in the season.
The Palm Beach women were
impressive and the Chipola ladies
showed a balanced and solid team
that will be a serious contender in
the Panhandle conference.
The Gulf Coast Commurity
College men drew the largest
crowds the 7 p.m. start for the
Commodores' two games was'
prime time and were part of .the
best game of the tourney, losing
by one to St. Johns River. CC in a
game in which the ball changed


hands three times in the final five
seconds',
"I've seen a lot of tournaments
this, time of year and our tourna ,
ment was comparable to most,"
Langston said. "But it will get bet-
ter because we will continue to
work it."
That includes continuing to
attract teams with area players onf
their rosters.
Alabama Southern, for exam-
ple, suited up Derrick Williams tof,
Wewahitchka and Justin Pittman
,of Bay High.

'It was two days of exciting basketball during the Gulf County JUCO Basketball Classic at Port St.

of South Carolina Community College.


The Gulf Coast Community College Commodores warm. up prior to the final game of the Gulf County
JUCO Basketball Classic, which took place last Friday and Saturday at Port St. Joe High School. The

There are two kinds of
swelling associated with dental
problems (trauma and infection)
and they are treated in different
ways. So, first you should deter-,
mine the cause.
Usually you'll know if it is the
resultof a trauma, such as a base-
ball bat to the'jaw or a dental pro-
cedure like a tooth extraction.

Nature of a rose is easy to see and
its fragrance has been analyzed
and made into famous perfumes.
But the most important nature of
the rose is understood best by our
innate senses. It simply is. When
we are lost for words to describe
beauty, we say "It is as beautiful
as a rose," and we are understood.
The first thing that catches
your eye when nearing the
McInnis house is, the shrub rose
"knock out" and it really will
knock your socks off with its
,bright color and bounty ,of
blooms. Other varieties include
the Whiskey Mac, the Tiffany and
the Dolly Parton. Even more than
in the spring, this is the season
for the rose. It loves, the cool
weather and rewards us with
energized blooms and. wi th most

Swelling

cause an overall sick feeling, with
fever and perspiration. In either
case, you should see the dentist as
soon as possible. Alleviating the
swelling doesn't cure the cause.
For swelling caused by injury or
dental procedure, the .treatment is
ice. An ice pack should be applied
for a minimum of half-hour on and
half-hour off.
For swelling caused by an infec-
tion, heat is applied. A heating pad,
hot water bottle or hot towel applied
to the face will dilate (enlarge) the
blood vessels and enable more of
the infection-fighting elements of the
blood (or antibiotics, if they have
been prescribed) to come to the
infected area.

Faith Christian School

The Thanksgiving holidays
are over, the end of our first
semester is rapidly approaching,
and the Christmas season has
-begun. Progress reports have
been sent out this week, and only
two more weeks remain in this
quarter.
'School will be dismissed
December 20 at twelve noon after
our Christmas program and class
parties. We will not return until
after the 2003 New Year begins.
Faith Christian students and
staff extend their sympathy, love
and prayers to Mrs. Joy Richards
in the death of her husband, Mr.
Rudy Richards. Miss Joy was our
third grade teacher for over
twenty years, and both she and
Mr. Rudy are much loved.
Many of the classes will be
going to Panama City on Monday,
9? December 9 to see a performance
of A Christmas Carol by Charles
Dickens. It is a favorite at Faith
Christian and former students
will remember putting on .their
own rendition of the play in past
years.
Miss Carla's third grade class
took a trip to Panama City in
November to see the weather lab
at News Channel 13. They ,were
given a tour of all the high tech
weather equipment.
Our K-4 classes are enjoying
learning 'about George Washing-
ton Carver and the peanut. They
have heard .about many dis-
coveries that he made involving
the peanut and they have had
peanuts for snacks.
Among the things that our
students wrote that they were
thankful for are God, our families
and friends, all our freedoms, and
that we live in America. Also listed
were parents, our school, good,
teachers, our lives, and Jesus. We
are thankful to have students who
are aware of the many blessings
that they, and we, have been
given. We look forward to. the
celebration this Christmas season
of our most precious gift, the Lord
Jesus Chnst.

A Note of Thanks
On behalf of the associates,
,management, and directors of
Capital City Bank, I would like to
extend a heart warm thanks to all
of our local law enforcement. As
most everyone knows our bank
was recently robbed. Within
minutes Sergeant James Hersey
was at the back door making sure
everyone was okay and then
within minutes of his arrival
Sheriff McKeithen with his
deputies and other police officers
arrived. Each team put into
motion the necessary strategies
for the apprehension of the
robber. I, along with the other
associates, was amazed and
relieved to know that we have
such caring law enforcement. It
was as if they had a personal
interest in us and each of them

demonstrated their concerns.
Also, we would like to extend
our appreciation to all of you who
called just to make sure we were
okay and no one was hurt. Living
in a community like we do makes
us realize how blessed we are
especially in a time of need. That
afternoon when we had re-opened
the office, all of us thought about
how God had taken such good
care of us.
I would like to say a special
thanks to my team. Their actions
or maybe it was reactions showed
their care for- their fellow
associates. They all performed
their duties responsibly, res-
,ponsively and professionally even
in a chaotic time.
Our gratitude to all the law
enforcement is one that can not
be put into words, we can just say

Proper
Although artificial Christ-
mas trees have gained
considerable popularity in recent
years, primarily, because of their
convenienience and consistent
appearance, many people still
prefer a real tree. If you're a
traditionalist, and plan to have a
natural tree, it's important that
you shop early and take good care
of your purchase .from the
moment you get it home until the.
holidays are over.
Regardless of the type of
natural Christmas tree you
choose-an imported fir, pine,
spruce, or a native Florida. red
cedar-you should select a fresh,
well-shaped tree. Before buying,
decide where you'll display the
tree, so you'll know exactly, what
size to purchase. If you plan to
put the tree in a corner or against
a. wall, you might buy one with a
bad side, and save a few dollars..
It's important to shop .at a'
Christmas tree lot where the trees
are well displayed, so you can
really see what you're getting for
your money. Once you find afresh
tree of the right size and shape,
you need to know how to take care
of it properly.

Care for Your Live Christmas Tree


* Florida Garden

Extension Notes
by
Roy Lee Carter
Gulf County Extension Service
,.-


If you buy your tree several
days before you plan to set it up.
store it outdoors in a cool area
under shade or in a carport. Cut
the tree stump at a diagonal
about one inch above the original
cut. and place it in a container of
water. When you bring the tree
Inside, saw the stump again, this
time squaring off the diagonal.
This creates a fresh wound which
helps the tree take up water


through the stump. Now place the
tree in a stand that holds water.
Be sure you keep the stand filled
at all times. It's surprising how
quickly a good-size tree can take
up a quart of water. So. check the
water level at least once a day.
Place your tree in the coolest
part of the room. Keep it away
from things like fireplaces,
radiators, air ducts, even tv sets.
The heat from these can cause the


tree needles to dry out and drop
off very quickly.
S Proper Christmas tree care
is only part of the story. There are
certain safety rules you should
follow carefull]. Never use candles'
or anything with an open fame on
or hear the tree. If you are using
electric lights, check them over
very carefully for loose
connections and worn wires.
Don't ov\erload your electrical,
circuits. If you must use an
extension' cord. run it out of the
way of foot traffic, and be sure it's
heavy enough for the current
load. Always turn the tree lights
off when you leave home or go to
bed.
Buying and caring for your
Christmas tree may not be the
weightiest problem on your rmnd
as we move into the Christmas
season. But. if you plan to have a
natural Christmas tree in your
home this year. you'll need to give


some thought to both subjects.
Keep in mind that a fresh tree
with good shape .and sturdy
branches usually will make the
best tree for displaying and
decorating. Make -sure you keep
the tree in the coolest possible
place, and that you water, it every
day,. Take the time to properly
care for your Christmas tree, and
it will reward your efforts with'
radiant beauty throughout the
holiday season. r o '

DAR Sponsors


Troops Aboard USS


John C. Stennis


The St. Joseph Bay Chapter
of the National Society of
Daughters of the American
Revolution has joined with other
chapters worldwide in the war
against terrorism. After the
reprehensible attack on our
country, the DAR began working
with the Department of the Navy
to find a way to show support in
the war against terrorism. ,The
DAR was .notified by the
Commanding Officer of the USS
John C. Stennis and the ship's
personnel that they would greatly
appreciate the chapter's sponsor-
ship.
As a result, the DAR Project
Patriot committee was formed.
The public is encouraged to join in
the support of this worthwhile
project. Any thank-you cards,
prepaid phone calling cards, or
monetary contributions will be
appreciated by the military
serving on the USS John C.
Stennis.
,The nuclear-powered aircraft
carrier was cruising the waters off
Southern California on September
11, 2001. By sunset on that day,
.the carrier was on full alert and
would soon go to war. The 5200
crew members missed many
major holidays while serving far
from home. Anyone who 'is
interested in-, showing their
appreciation for the USS John C..
Stennis .crew members can
contact any DAR member for
further information. ,

distributions made after 2010 will
be taxable to the beneficiary.
However, this still provides tax
savings, as earnings will
presumably be taxed at the child's
lower tax rate.
Secondly; section 529 plans
allow you, the donor, to retain
control over the account's assets.
You decide when withdrawals can
be made and for what purpose.
You can change the beneficiary at
any time and most plans even,
allow you to take a distribution at,
any time for any reason, however
taxes and penalties may apply.
Additionally, everyone is
eligible for a section 529 plan and
the amounts you can invest are
substantial aeover $200.000 per
beneficiary in many states. You
can open an account for yourself."
or anyone you choose. Generally,,
there are no restrictions based
upon age, income or relationship
to the beneficiary.
Lastly, a section 529 plan is
an easy and convenient way to
save for college. .The ongoing
management of plan assets is
handled by the state treasurer's
,office or by an outside investment
company. You will riot receive a.
Form 1099 to report taxable 6r
nontaxable earnings until the
year you begin withdrawals.
Estate tax implications:
Contnbutions to section ,529
plans also provide estate fax
advantages. A contribution to a
,529 plan qualifies for the $11,000
annual federal gift tax exclusion.
This allows you to make relatively'
large contributions without incur-
ring the gilt tax. Additionally you.
nmay make a contribution of up to,
$55,000 immediately and ,treat
the contribution as if it were made
over a five-year period for gift tax
purposes. The money is moved
out of your estate faster than It
would be through equal annual
contributions and there is more
money in the 529 plan to generate
potential earnings. The beauty of
this is that you get to shift assets
out of your estate for estate tax
purposes yet still maintain control
over the assets. However, if you
die within this 5-year period a
portion of the gift may be brought
back into your estate.
Develop a comprehensive
college savings plan
Investing in a section 529
plan offers-the unique benefits of

control. It may be the right choice
for many parents and grand
parents looking for ways to save
for college. But which plan should
you choose and how much should
you invest? College savings plans
offered by each state differ
significantly in features and
benefits. The optimal plan for
each investor depends on his or
her individual objectives and
circumstances. In comparing
plans, each investor should

Save the River
I would like to respond to the
article printed in The Star on Nov.
28, 2002, "Wewa Board Plans to
Attend Apalachicola River Meet-
ing."
The article states that the
Corps of Engineers are soliciting
input from Gulf and Franklin
counties and that the voices in
those areas have not been heard
much in the last 5 or 6 years. Alan
McNair, Interim Director of the
Planning and Development
Council of Gulf County,: having
resided in this area for only about
4'years, may not be aware of the
many efforts by people in these
two counties on the water
allocation issue arid the issue of
the destructive practices of the
dredging of the river; Those efforts
have included hundreds of letters
to state and federal leaders, trips
to 'Washington, D.C:, meetings,
<4 dozens of tours of the river, work
with the media and research into
studies done on the Apalachicola
River. Many days ,have been spent
documenting the ongoing effects
of dredging plus a lot of filming of
the dredging as it was being done.
I would like to mention a few
of the voices that have spoken
loud and clear against the
harmful dredging practices. Mr. L.
L. Lanier who is an old time
producer of Tupelo honey, Mr.
John Hentz who is 90 years old
and an historian and very,
knowledgeable about the river
system, Senator Bob Graham and
Governor Jeb. Bush -who have
both spoken out against the
dredging of the Apalachicola
River, The Help Save The
Apalachicola River Group here in
Gulf County, Apalachicola Bay
and River Keepers in Franklin
County and many, many others.
The article proposes that
should dredging be stopped; the
river might not even run through
Gulf County but instead,through
Sumatra, 'maybe? I suppose the
'sky could fall but I wouldn't want
to speculate on either scenario.
Wewahitchka City
Commissioner Philip .Gaskin'
statement. "When we had barge
traffic we had water"; belies the
fact that for 5 years we were in a
draought-ard there was no moie
S water. The reservoirr-tp-in the
.country-can only hold so much
and then it has to be released.
/.You can't stack water like you can
cord wood. The reason there is, no
barge traffic is because there are
no barge companies shipping on
the river because after dredging
for, 100 years the Corps of
Engineers cannot maintain a
shipping channel. The Apalach-
icola River has so much sediment
from so much dredging that when
a channel is dug, it fills in within
a short period of time. The Corps
'of Engineers has never
maintained a channel without
high water for even half of a year.
Wewa Cit' Manager Don
Minchew's statement that some
peQple's reaction to dredging was
a kneejerk reaction to stop the
dredging, which : statement is
laughable, as a kneejerk reaction
is spontaneous and therefore a lot
of peoples' knees have been
jerking for 'many years that they
have been fighting against the
destructive results of the
dredging.
i Mnchew's- later statement
that the focus should be on the.
dredged spoil is also wrong
because there are many issues
with dredging that involve the
,degradation of the river.
'It is sad that Minchew and
Gaskin are planning to attend the
meeting in Columbus, Georgia in
support of an issue that a group
from this same area will be there
to oppose. My question is: Who is
representing who or what?
Marilyn Blackwell

River Group

We Are Blessed
I was thinking about the
wonderful people of Port St Joe
today and how blessed bur little
community is. Suddenly, my
heart was joyous and I felt God
speaking to' me, and I
remembered ,the reasons why we
moved back here after military
retirement. Our church recently
celebrated Veterans Day whereby
we placed God above all things as
we recognized our veterans and
active duty, reserve, and guard
.forces that protect our nation.
And as we all begin the holi-
day season and share fellowship
with our loved ones, let us all take
the time to remember not only


each other, but also our military
forces that serve this great Nation
and are scattered all around the
world protecting us. Many of them
are separated from their families
and sacrifice for us so that we can


enjoy these freedoms we cherish
during this holiday season.
It's often lonesome being
away, I know, because my family
did this for 24 years in the
military. This Thanksgiving and
Christmas, yes, there's 'much to
reflect-upon, and even more to be
grateful for. But as we approach
the holiday season,, let us
remember...It's all about Him.
Thank your God today for your
many blessings and may you
never take them for granted.
More than a' year ago our
nation was attacked, and thanks
to our military forces Afghanistan
was liberated, and we now find
the terrorists are on the run. But
more work in the war, against
terror remains. "We will root out
all the terrorists .who threaten.
America and our allies," said
President Bush during a recent
radio : address. "And no matter
how long it takes, we will fight.the
enemies of freedom, and we will
win." Yes, President Bush is a
politician, but he's a God-fearing
man-a national and inter-
national leader, and that makes a
big difference in how he does
things. Pray for him!
We should all be thankful for'
the freedom of America's
democracy. No matter what you
hear others say about how bad
our nation is, this land is the
greatest by far to live in. God has
blessed. America, and richly. No
others on the face. of this earth
enjoy what we have, even with all
the bad publicity we hear and see


each day, folks, it's simply... still
the best! We should be thankful.
for the goodness and generosity of
our God, and also of our
.wonderful citizens within this
community. Can. we do more.for
others? Of course we can, and we
should. Pray for others!
Because of our American
military, -others around the world
live in freedom and have hope for
a better life. Freedom is replacing
fear throughout the world.
Justice is being brought to those
who -wouild harm Amenrca. I am
thankful today for a President and
leadership. that pray to God and
seek His will in their daily lives as
they make decisions that affect
our Nation, and our communities.'
Pray for our veterans, police
officers, firemen, and our active
duty, reserve, and guard forces
that serve, and protect.
I was also thinking how the
holidays could be a difficult time
for people who are grieving.
.Friends may be reluctant to'
mention the name. of someone
who has died. fearing that it will
cause unnecessary pain.' But
during the next few weeks, friends
or family members may need you'
to talk openly with them about the
person they have lost. Call it a
"ministry of remembering." I
believe when you've experienced
the loss through death of a
.spouse, child, or parent, it hurts
terribly. And when other people
don't want to use their names or
refer to the death. it's like losing
that person all over again.

Help Save Our Lighthouse and Keeper's Quarters

PURCHASE A PILING FOR PRESERVATION OF CAPE SAN BLASLIGHTHOUSE AND KEEPER'S QUARTERS


The St. Joseph Historical Society, Inc., a not for profit entity, is soliciting donations to preserve the Cape San Bias Lighthouse and Keeper's Quarters,
one of the few remaining historic structures in Gulf County.

The Northwest Florida Improvement Foundation has offered the Society a challenge grant in the amount of $20,000. Any funds raised of up to
$20,000 by the Society before January 1, 2003 will be matched by NFIF. All book sales of The Great Tide, The Lives of St. Joseph, and Territorial Giants,
have been dedicated to this project through December. The Society will have a booth during the Christmas on the Coast festivities where the books and
prints of the lighthouse may be purchased.

The keeper's quarters were built in 1917 by the United States Lighthouse Service to accommodate the Cape San Bias Lighthouse. These structures
have long been significant landmarks on the Cape San Bias coast and have been an integral part of the maritime industry in and around St. Joseph Bay and
the Northern Gulf of Mexico.


It is the intent of the Society to relocate and rehabilitate the quarters affectionately know as "Sleeping
Beauty" to its original design and be used as a museum. Anticipation is that the museum will house a collection
depicting the history of the lighthouse, the quarters, and the families who lived there. Additionally, there will
Sbe local history displays with emphasis on the area's maritime activities. It will also be an outstanding
enhancement tool in the teaching of Florida History for elementary, middle, high school, and college stu-
dents. The site will afford a museum, hands-on setting for field trips, and allow a new generation access to
Florida's past.

The lighthouse, which was built in 1885, will be rehabilitated and reactivated with reduced candle-
power to be in compliance with United States Coast Guard regulations and environmental concerns. It is
the last one of four, which, since 1848 has successively
marked one of Florida's most dynamic shorelines and
most dangerous capes and shoals for navigation. The light-
S/ house contains the only intact lens revolving clockwork in the State
i and a pristine third-order bivalve lens.

By Lori Price
Most experts agree that
parent involvement can be crucial
to children's success in school.
The reasons are manifold.
Children can be strongly encour-
aged in their academic pursuits
by their parents' or guardians'
support and interest. They often
need help from their parents to do
their homework well. They may
need guidance in determining
how to use their free time
productively and they benefit from
seeing a consistency between the
values and lessons taught at
school and those practiced at
home.
Research has strongly
emphasized the link between
student achievement and parent
involvement. For example, one
analysis of national test results
found that three factors over
which parents have enormous
control-student absenteeism,
variety of reading materials in the
home, and the. amount of


television watched-accounted for
nearly 90 percent of the
differences in student test scores.
Even as educators and
policymakers increasingly ac-
knowledge the importance of
parent involvement, however, they
recognize that they face signifi-
cant challenges in fostering it.
This is a particularly difficult time
to improve parental involvement
in education. Families in today's
modern society are .increasingly
fragmented and harried. Parents
face ever-growing demands on
their time, more competition for
children's attention, and eco-
nomic burdens that force more of
them to work outside the home.
But there are definite signs
that connections between schools
and families can be made stronger.
One thing at least is clear: Parents
from all walks of life desperately
want their children to succeed
and want to work with schools in
that process.

As our season closes, the
Taunton's Trusses Team is still
excited and determined. The
players have worked hard in every
game, kept up their spirit, and
learned the game of soccer.
One player, Trent McGill,
exhibited a talent as goalkeeper,
stopping numerous goal attempts.
His brothers, Travis and Trey did
admirably in the role of mid-
