Case to D.C.

week to argue their case for lifting
the Coastal Bajrier and Resource
Act (CBRA) designation on Cape
County Commission chairman
Jerry Barnes, the county's chief
administrator Don Butler, Building
Department head Michael
Hammond and Ron Morrow of the
* Gulf County Coastal Development
Association Inc., were joined by
William Harrison, the Panama City
consultant hired to lobby the
county's case in government halls.
-They met with an assistant
deputy director at the Department
of the Interior, the U.S. Fish and.
Wildlife and made a presentation
to officials with the Federal
Emergency Management Agency.
As part of their presentations
in both offices, the group provided
reams of technical data provided
by Preble Rish.
"We got a rather positive
response," Morrow said. "We will
probably be going back next
The hope is that at least tacit
approval from FEMA and, in par-
ticular, the Department of Interior,
would provide momentum to sup-

will require federal legislative

Library Opens Its Books
Community Celebrates Opening of Charles Whitehead Wewahitchka Public Libray
by Tim Croft
It seemed eerily apt, as. if
Dewey's decimals had aligned, that
the first book checked out of the.
new Wewahitchka public library
was Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's
A volume from a series credit-
ed with energizing young readers
worldwide thus became the, first
loaned from a facility supporters
hope and believe will do the same
in one tiny corner of the planet.
"(The new library) is a way to
get kids excited about reading out-
side of class," said Cameron
Totman, a fifth- and sixth-grade
language arts teacher at
Wewahitchka Elementary School.
There was excitement aplenty
over the weekend as the Charles
Whitehead Wewahitchka Public
Library swung open its doors to
the public for the first time. .
Sunday afternoon served not
so much as a grand opening, hut
as, to borrow a phrase from the
business arena, a "soft" opening
for the facility.
Readers young and old, and in
between, gained access to the
library's tomes even though the
last areas of .housekeeping still
must be accomplished in the com-
ing weeks. \
"It's a wonderful blessing for
our community," said Kay
Freeman of the library. "To have a
sufficient facility for our communi-
ty is just a blessing.
"It's wonderful for my kids. It's
wonderful for me,. to be able to
come down and use the computers
and be able to check out books."
With the books now on the
shelves, the glistening facility
seemed much more like a library
than last week during an appreci-
ation outing for friends and sup-
porters of the library.
And despite the lure of a Super
Bowl on. TV, the turnout for
Sunday's opening, with kids
perusing the rows of books and
gathering at the round wooden
tables to read, reflected the enthu-
siasm for the $500,000-plus facili-
"I'm thrilled as a parent and a
principal," said Pam Lister, princi-
pal at Wewahitchka Middle School.

emphasis on reading through .the
Accelerated Reader program.
"Here the students have
access to good books when our,
school library is closed. They can

Ann Matlock,, who for 26 years
has served as librarian at the old

Discusses Wetappo Creek Bridge
Gulf County commissioners
spent time expressing thanks,
talking about updating the com-
prehensive. plan and discussing
replacing the Wetappo Creek
bridge along the Jarrott Daniels
Road during Tuesday's regular
Replacement of the Wetappo
Creek Bridge became a hot topic
after last week's public meeting in
Wewahitchka resulted in anger
over the prospects of the road
being closed during the process
and the resulting inconvenience of
driving a considerable distance to
get around the work.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
understood the public's concern
and gave assurance the board
would go the distance to make the
burden as bearable as possible,
but the bridge had to be replaced.
"Look at these pictures!... it's
(the bridge) in worse shape than I
thought," Traylor said as he
pulled out photos showing the
underside of the bridge.
The photos gave indisputable
proof that the bridge is in need of
repair or replacement. The under-
side supports are showing obvi-
ous signs of disintegration as well
as large cracks in the retaining
walls on each end. So bad was the
damage that commissioners said
the bridge, which is rated for 11
tons, needs immediate protection

limit and stopping heavy truck

All parties agreed that safety of
school children is a top priority.

year before the $400,000 bridge
will be replaced. In the mean time

H-unker Down with Kes byKesley colbert
I Can't Blame This One On Leon!
Who Will Pay
There seems to be an ongoing dispute about whether President
Bush's proposed tax cuts are wise and whether they favor the
My good friend Sam Griffin, publisher of the Bainbridge Post-
Searchlight, recently printed a column which included an e-mail he
received on this subject:
Suppose that every day, 10 men go out for dinner. The
bill for all 10 comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way
we pay 'our taxes, it would go something like this: The first
four men (the poorest) would pay nothing. The fifth would
pay $1. The sixth would pay $3. .The seventh $7. The i.
eighth $12. The ninth $18. The 10th man (the richest)
would pay $59.
So that's what they decided to do. The 10 men ate din-
ner in the restaurant every day and seemed quite happy
with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them
"Since you are all such good customerss" he said, "I'm
going to reduce the cost of your daily meal by $20."
So now dinner for the 10 oily cost $80. The group still
wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes. So the
first four men were unaffected. They would still eat for free.
But what about the other six, the paying customers?
How could they 'divvy up the windfall so that everyone
would get. his 'fair share'? The six men realized that $20
divided by six is'$3.33. But if they subtracted that from
everybody's share, then the_ fifth man and the sixth man
would each end up being 'paid' to eat their meal. So the
restaurant owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce
each man's bill by roughly the same amount, and he pro-
ceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.
And so: The fifth man, like the first four, now paid
nothing (100 percent savings). The sixth now paid $2
instead of $3 (33 percent savings). The seventh now paid
,$5 instead of $7 (28 percent savings). The eighth now paid
$9 instead of $12 (25 percent savings). The ninth now paid
$14 instead of $18 (22 percent savings). The 10th now paid
$49 instead of $59 (16 percent savings).
Each of the six was better off than before. And the first
four continued to eat for free. But once outside the restau-
rant, the men began to compare their savi.ngs. ..
"I only got a dollar out of the 820," declared the sixth
man. He pointed to the 10th. "But he got S10!"
"Yeah, that's right," exclaimed the fifth man. "I,only
saved a dollar, too. It's unfair that he got 10 times more
"That's true!" shouted the seventh man. "Why should
he get $10 back when I got only $2? The wealthy get all the
"Wait a minute," yelled the first four men in unison.
"We didn't get anything at all. The system exploits the
The nine men surrounded the 10th man and beat him
up. The next night the 10th man didn't show up for dinner,
so the nine sat -down and ate without him. But when it
came time to pay the bill they discovered something impor-
tant: They didn't have enough money among all of them for
even half of the bill!'

more than doubled their support
to United Way for 2003 over last
year, increasing contributions to
$10,699 up from $4,755 last year.
Gulf County is the only one of six
counties in United Way of
Northwest Florida to exceed its
prior year contributions.
People in the Gulf County
area will have the opportunity to
make a contribution this Friday,
January 31, from 4 to 7 p.m. ET.
Drop by the United Way office at-
402 Reid Avenue in Port St. Joe
during this fund drive.
Many area non-profit organ-
izations depend on state and
federal age cies for basic
operational funding. What many
people do not realize is that some
agencies also heavily depend on
funding from the United Way of
Northwest Florida. For some,
such as Family Services, as much
as 75% of their operational dollars
come from United Way. This year,
the 40 non-profits who depend on
those funds may be in trouble.
"At this' point the overall
campaign is falling;* about
$150,000 short of goal," stated Ed
Richards, Vice President of United
Way of Northwest Florida.
"Gulf County's campaign
almost doubled its contribution
from $4,755 last year to $10,699
this year, thanks to Allen Cox and
his volunteers. Even though gulf
has done a magnificent job, we
are still behind in the six-county
region. This means that a lot of
services will have to be cut if
things do not change."
'The state corrections cam-
paign has always been Gulf and
Jackson's main source of
revenue, but this year it is, down
dramatically. Gulf County more
than made up the short-fall with
its community giving."
"If we do not get our normal
United Way funding, we, might
have to close' one of our four
locations," stated Paul Mosca,
director of the Boys & girls Club
in Bay County. Other organiza-
tions share his concern.,
"We may -have to close our
doors or seriously curtail our
services," stated Jeanne Warren,

"When families are in desperate

There are approximately
170,000 people living in Bay
County alone, but United Way of

those patients, the drive, while
building the patient, and physi-

"We've never focused on it as
this is a project we wanted to do,"
said Hubert Steeley, president and
CEO of Gulf Pines. "To have a
focused, organized effort to have
(specialists) come out, I've not seen
it like we're doing it."
Byi overhauling a handful of
rooms, outfitting them with updat-
ed equipment and supplies, they
can establish what is essentially a
"time share" clinic for specialists of
Doctors can contract to take
space in four-hour time slots, as
often as the patient load and the
associated costs warrant.

Saving the Children

of a missing child.

Kindergarten students will be
carrying home "Child Identification

record fingerprints and physical
characteristics of the child.
The completed card can, in the
event of the unspeakable, provide
authorities with critical informa-
tion to aid in the search for a child
who has disappeared.

God looked around His garden and saw an empty space,
Then He looked down upon this earth and saw your loving face,
He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest,
S His garden must have been beautiful, He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain,
N' 4,And knew that you would never get well on this earth again.
He saw your path was difficult, He closed your tired eyes,
He whispered "Peace Be Thine" and gave you wings to fly.
When we saw you sleeping so calm and free from pain,
We could not wish you back on earth, to suffer once again.
You've left us precious memories, your love will be our guide,
You live on thr.-,iIh .,our children you're always by our side.
It breaks our hearts to loose you, but you did not go alone,
For a part of us went with you, on the day God called you home.

However, the opposite is true. It is

Christmas Happenings at
Wewahitchka Elementary School
By Lori Price
School was a busy place during
the Christmas Season. Employees
of Gulf Correctional Institute
brought Santa down for a visit
and presented each of our
students in Pre-K through second
grade a delightful toy handcrafted
by inmates. We would like to
express our gratitude for their
generosity. Pictured with Santa is
second grader Clay Sasser.
While introducing a group of
5th grade girls to a new genre, Ms.
Cameron Totman shared a poem
in which a young man joined an
elderly aunt "for a Christmas cup
of tea." After discussing the poem,
she escorted the girls to a nearby
classroom in which an elaborate
tea party was prepared. The girls
donned stoles, floppy hats and
costume jewelry then sat down to
tea and scones, using the good
china, of course! We are fortunate
to have teachers who go to such
lengths to foster wonderful child-
hood memories for our students.
Pictured here (left to right)' are:
Shelby Nowell, Morgan Rickerson,
Mindy Green, Mandy Traxler,
Tamber McLemore & Brittany
For several weeks prior to the
Christmas holidays, new child-
ren's books were donated by area
businesses, civic organizations,
and generous individuals. The
books were used to fill two jumbo
stockings donated by our PTO.
Students who met their
Accelerated Reader requirements
for a specified period of time were
entered in a drawing for the
stockings. The project was a
tremendous success and we
would like to thank all who helped
to make it so. Sixth grader Paige
Nickell won the intermediate
stocking and kindergartener
Brianna Loveless was the lucky
winner of the primary stocking.
