Portions of

Beach to Close

S to Night Driving

The Gulf County Sheriffs Office
has, announced that effective
Thursday, May 1, portions of the
beaches on the Cape referred to as
the Aquatic Reserve will be closed
to night driving. In previous years,
the designated area was from the
Stump Hole to the State Park.
This year, the county has incor-
porated the tip of the Cape east to
near the Ski Breeze as part of the
Aquatic Preserve. No vehicles will
be allowed on the tip of the Cape or
the Stump Hole area from sunset
until sunrise, from May 1 through
October 31.
Violators of the ordinance will
be fined $150 for a first offense and.
$250 for a second offense. This
revised county ordinance will be
enforced by the Sheriffs office.


Gulf to Bay Hwy.


Meeting May 6
byTim Croft
The public will get a final look
at the planning phase for the pro-
posed Gulf to Bay Highway. includ-
ing a preferred route, during a pub-
lic hearing from 6:30 tb 8:30. p.m.
on Tuesday, May 6, at the
Centennial Building.
'0 This project is to construct the
so-called Back Beach Road which
would realign U.S. 98 north from
St. Joe Beach to north of Mexico
Beach.
The existing U.S. 98 would
remain as is, save for minor
changes in the vicinity of the inter-
sections with the new roadway.
This is the final public hearing
in the planning and environmental
impact study portion of the project.
A preferred route alternative
will be identified during the public
hearing.
A final report will be drafted by
the engineers in the coming weeks
to be submitted to the Florida
Department of Transportation and
Opportunity Florida.
Funding has already been set
aside for the next stage, the design
phase, of the project.

Gulf Health Department Expanding



Dental Services, Building Additions and Enhanced Health Programs Are Underway


by Tim Croft
The scarred ground, the
marked stakes, the rebar and the
heavy equipment tell the story.'
The county Health Department
is expanding, physically and figu-
ratively, as health officials use fed-
eral and state dollars to create a
medical operation that stands
above the state's 67 counties.
Dental services, an expanded
physical plant, enhanced, school
health programs and longer clinic
hours are just the symptoms of a
medical center that has expanded
its reach while burnishing its stats
as an economic engine fcor the
county.
And all the while shaking the
image that a Health Department is
the often unsightly mesh of the
medical safety net for the unfortu-
nate.
"The county Health
Department isn't just for the poor
people, it's for everybody," said
county health official Doug Kent.
"We're not just standard. You can
have quality whatever you need.
"Statistics show that 44 per-
cent of the population goes out of
town for medical services. We want
those people to have a medical
home here. We're trying to keep


directly out of medical school
sometime in the near future.
The clinic will operate 7 a.m.
until 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday
through Friday and, maybe most
importantly, is targeting Medicaid
children.
"That's one of our target
groups, Medicaid children," Kent
said, noting the paucity of doctors
and dentists who advertise that
they accept children on Medicaid.
The clinic will also accept other
insurance carriers and will, as with
all other Health Department servic-
es, offer a sliding fee scale, starting
at $13, for the uninsured.
Instilling proper dental hygiene
in the young is part of a broader
effort to be proactive when it comes
to keeping kids healthy.
Beginning in the fall, -the
Health Department will have a
school nurse, in all the county's
schools, including Faith Christian
and the Head Start programs in
Highland View and Wewahitchka.
And again, this is a luxury that
not many counties enjoy, particu-
larly as budgetary woes have
sapped the number of school nurs-
es statewide.
"Every place that has a certi-
fied teacher, we'll have a health


Dental services through the health department are now available
at two locations in the county.


those people in the county."
The next step in that effort
began this week 'as a new dental
clinic became part of the operation,
currently housed 'at the old' Health
Department building.
A retired dentist from Panama
City, Dr. Charles Barrett, will oper-
ate the clinic while the Health
Department seeks to hire a dentist

He was just sitting on the back
porch of his vacation rental, watch-
ing the surf as a storm approached.
Suddenly, in front of him
appeared a waterspout. Then, he
said, another spiraling funnel of
foreboding.
By the end of the afternoon, the
man from Michigan was packing to
return home.
I A squall line that ripped across
Northwest Florida on Friday morn-
ing damaged a dozen homes on
Cape San Blas and disbursed
debris throughout the area.
And, 'according to Marshall
Nelson with county Emergency
Management, pretty much ended
the vacation of at least one man
from Michigan.
A waterspout was believed to
have come ashore near Windward
Street on the Cape. The system,
minutes later, felled a tree and
forcefully pruned other limbs in
town near the currently under-ren-
ovation Swifty Serve station.

Arthur "Perky" White has

Tuesday of the month, generally an
off night for Port St. Joe city com-
missioners, but a workshop session
had the board looking at opportuni-
ties to capitalize 'oh sewer expan-
sion while protecting the environ-
ment of St. Joseph Bay in the
process.
The board recently decided to
look at the possibility of extending
sewer service after Preble Rish engi-
neer Bill Kennedy, suggested the
idea. Tuesday several developers
were on hand to get an idea
whether or not the expansion was
feasible.
Philip Jones of Preble Rish,
gave the board an estimate of
approximately $3 million to build a
forced main system which could
serve four to five thousand resi-
dents between Port St. Joe and the
entrance to the state park on St.
Joseph peninsula. Jones said the

The houses which sustained
damage were on Windward, Port,

minor damage and the storm

apparently, to the sense of security

the cost to run sewer lines and

Somewhere between 200 and
300 units of future development
were represented by those develop-
ers present. No firm numbers were
given or suggested to estimate the
number of units it would take to
hook up to the system in order to
make it feasible for developers or
the city.

In-Scensed...


Welcome to the


Machine

Editors Note: A few weeks back I filled this space with a report
about my stepping into the high-tech world of computers. The
Star's main reporter, Tim Croft, was so shocked by this giant step
I had taken that he shared the following observation:
It is known, simply, as the machine.
Forget laptop,. iBook or computer. Just call it the machine,
bearer of marvels, the Land of Oz under a blueberry hood.
Talk to my boss, Willie, about his sleek package of silicon and
plastic and the listener is transported over the poppy field to the
Emerald City.
The machine.
Hearing Willie relate how his column goes into the machine
and is transformed onto the printed page is to hear a graybeard
transported back to beneath the Christmas tree in years gone by.'
The machine.
Understand, now, that Willic took a quantum leap with this
technology. It was, in the ether world, the equivalent of jumping
from stone tablets to the Gutenberg Bible in an afternoon.
One day he's writing his columns out long-hand, on legal pad,
to be type-set and then laid on the page.
The next day he's tapping away with the confident aplomb of
Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers on a machine he can dance with
all the way to the deer stand.
No baby steps, the kind that most of us technology dinosaurs
must take, from typewriter to personal computer to the nirvana
of mobility represented by a laptop.
For those of us who are technologically-challenged, who wipe
out when we surf the Internet, who understood download as a
gun-and-ammunition term, this is heady stuff.
It was like crawling from the crib in the morning only to be
running the Boston Marathon by afternoon.
The machine not only digests the words and spits them out,
but checks spelling and assures proper grammar.
Puts all the letters inti., proper alignment. Straight from the -'
brain to page with only brief rest stops, which, I can attest, is the
safest way for words to travel.
And the machine is your buddy, always traveling in your
shadow. Ready to fire when the brain synapses ignite.
To listen to Willie regale about his new toy is, to use a hunt-
ing analogy he'd appreciate, to have thought he'd bagged Big Foot
up on that hunting lease.
Or reeled in Moby Dick from the bay.
And as he related his tale of column derring-do recently,
beaming with self-satisfaction and triumph, Willie was that kid
somewhere, oft time lost, in all of us.
Discovery. Wonderment.
Muscles that quickly atrophy with age along with the abs and
the glutes. ,Muscles that we -too often forget are our foundation,
the sinew that separates us from the beasts. .
They are muscles that, as with glutes and abs, must be exer-
cised to enjoy good health.
I know this. The machine told me.


I walked around, sheepishly,
looking for the PVC department.
Cathy had said "Bath and Body". I
pictured plumbing fixtures and
Boflex machines.
I don't shop much.


And I feel extra-ordinanly out
of place if the store doesn't have a
tool section. running shoes or
baseball gloves. The orange and
white checked awning decorating
the entrance was my first clue as
to something being amiss...
I like to see claw hammers and
baseball bats in the store window!
Or, at least, a Nike sign or one of
those stand up cardboard cut-outs
of some sports star. I would have
settled for a ceramic tub or a


treadmill.
This whole thing was Jesse's
fault! Cathy wanted to "go 'isit"
him for Easter. I'm thinking with
the money I'm sending him to go to
school on he can afford to drnve
home for the week-end! We never
"went off' for Easter when I was a
kid!
I even protested, "Honey, do
you have any .idea how crowded
Daytona Beach is in the spring?

York and Ohio cars that we'll have
to dodge. Wild people ~,%ill be frol-
icking back and forth on the

She quietly pointed out that
we weren't going for the beach,.
she'd be glad to drive, the boys had
out-grown the Easter egg hunt fif-
teen years ago and she'd sat
through enough NASCAR races on
T. V. in the last five years that I
owed her a vacation away from the
track k!
I smelled the Mango Mandarin
the ten year old salesclerk held
under my noise and thought, how
do I khow if it smells like a Mango
Mandarin. I didn't grow up in a
Mango field!
I looked around in amaze-
ment. The entire store was nothing
but bottle after bottle of scented
lotions., gels or creams! How could
yo)u make a living selling nothing
but smelling sauce?
Then I thought of E. W.
Grove's Tasteless Chill Tonic. Lis-
ten. the good doctor from Paris,
Tennessee. made a fortune selling
one single product, one bottle at a
tune!
These "Bath and Body" folks
offered a variety of smells. And
naturally they encouraged you to
test the samples until you "hit"
upon the scent that "felt good on
you" or, at the very least, accented
your natural body odor.
White Tea Ginger didn't smell
like any tea I had ever consumed.
Green Clover & Aloe didn't remind
me of green fields and lazy hazy
days of summer. Cucumber Melon
didn't smell like any patch I'd ever
been in. And I don't think you
could eat the Sun-ripened Rasp-
berry.
The young saleslady was back,
"Sir, maybe you would like Moon-
light Path." Was she serious?- The,
moonlight paths we use to.-take,
were out of necessity! 'Course, this
girl was way too citified and not
near old enough to have a clue...
"How about this one?" She
asked as she held out the Cotton
Blossom. Listen folks, she'd hit
upon something that I know some-
thing about! I've been in the cotton
field before daylight. I'e picked
cotton at high noon. I've stumbled
out of the field after dark with my
knees raw. both hands bleeding
and my back stooped over perma-
nently.....this scent had no con-
nection whatsoever with cotton in
any shape, form or fashion!
I thought of Granny on the
Beverly Hillbillies. She just dabbed
a little vanilla extract behind each
ear and she had a "good looking
feller" calling in no time. She was
constantly admonishing Elly Mae,
"Just a tiny drop, you use too
much and you'll have to fight the

May is the Best Month to Go Freshwater Fishing...


IT'S THE BEST MONTH to
go fresh water fishing, right now.'
I had my first-of-the-season
mess of bream, shell cracker and
channel catfish Saturday night. It
was the first mess caught this
spring, that I tasted.
They were good, too.
Fresh water fishing is the only
activity I really miss, with my
gimpy legs. I'm afraid to go out in a
fishing boat, now. At least, I have
no business getting in a boat to go
fishing.
I did my share before my 'legs
went lame, though. I caught my
share of fish 'and smelled up me
and mine on several occasions.
I guess that's why I miss it so
much, now.
Every spring caught me with
my rig headed for the river on Sat-
urday afternoon: I'd fly fish during
the summer and cast for bass in
the early spring. I hunted a bream
bed all my life, but never found
one. I

rday.
mping on OUR SUNDAY SCHOOL class
of Spider were all great fishermen and avid


frog hunters and we practiced both
right regularly.
I remember one time 'we all
went to Lister's Landing on the
Chipola River. We pulled a pop-up
travel tent to sleep in.
Ralph Walton embarrassed me
by proclaiming, "We didn't need to
bring any bait. Old Wes' snoring
grunted up worms for a 100 foot
radius!"l
I never heard the end of that.
Another time, we went to a
camp on the Brothers' River.
Billy Jordan was a member of
the class and his father, Lamar,
was an owner, along with Henry
Geddie and Bob Smith, of about
the largest and nicest camp on the
river.
We got to the camp on Friday
evening and went frog hunting,
after dark.
The next morning Bob Smith
cooked our breakfast, while we
slept, after our night of "frogging".
That was the first time I ever


ate eggs, fried frog legs, bream,
catfish, and shellcracker for break-
fast!
And, it was good!
Old Bob certainly knew his
way around a cook stove!

I HAVE DOZENS of other sto-
ries to tell you, but suffice it to say,
our Sunday School class went
fishing and camping every time we
had an opportunity.
Some tales, the members
would rather I not tell for fear of
incriminating them.
Such as the time we were frog-
ging and fishing and came back to
camp, to find Tom Ford and "Doll"
Collier, with their lone bull frog on
.a "lead" like a puppy dog, leading
him around the camp. He was a
large frog, but not that large!
Or, the time we went to Dead
Lakes, bass fishing. We took Sam
McCathan along to paddle the
boat. Sam was raised on the Dead
Lakes and knew his way around.


Sam was casting off the rear of
the boat and.suddenly got a strike.
"Play him, Saml" I yelled.
Sam came right back with,
"Yassah, I'll play with him .
when I get him in that skillet!"
Both Sam McCathen, Bob
Smith and "Doll" Collier., are dead
now, so I don't think they would ,
mind these stories at their
expense.
Tom Ford, Bill Barlow and
Ralph, Walton. will just have to
"suck it up!"

THOSE DAYS ARE gone for-
ever, but they are certainly not for-
gotten. They are part of a ritual
which happens every spring I sore-
ly miss.
I know that multitudes of you
still follow the finny tribe each and
every spring.
For instance. The river is at
the perfect stage right now for me
to be thinking of a trip to
Humphrey Slough ... if I was able.

In a county in which 48 per-
cent of the population lives

ty level classifying them as the

are, literally, lifelines.
As the famous song relates,

"If you start with the chil-
dren (when they are young) that
makes them more susceptible to
checking their health later in
life," Kent noted.
As the dental clinic takes
root and school programs grow,
the Health Department is
adding bricks and mortar.
Construction is underway
on the second phase of the
Health Department's main facil-
ity, a project that finally became
a reality with $1 million from
the state Department of Health
trust fund.
It was the final payment in a
.multi-year process of creating a
new health facility, which will
ultimately include a full-service
clinic, environmental programs
and an array of social services
as well as administrative space.
f Kent has lobbied the project
for several years, initially receiv-
ing about $800,000 and two
subsequent payments, years
apart, of $500,000.
"It has been a target project
the past three years and .we,
wanted to finish it," Kent said.

remember when we were kids-we'd
throw a piece of Juicy Fruit gum in
our mouths, along with some
Dentyne and, for good measure,
we'd add' a stick of Clove or
Teaberry. What you ended up with
was a big wad of chewables that
didn't really taste like anything. I'
was getting that exact same "sense"

turns, fire sale and donation.
State Rep. Bev Kilmer, R-
Quincy, proved an invaluable
friend in Tallahassee.
The old building was simply
antiquated compared to needs.
It was not readily handicapped-
accessible, was in a Class 2
hurricane zone compared to the
Class 5 of the new facility and
lacked the square footage to
match staffs dreams.
"We felt the community was
moving out this way and it has,",
Kent pointed out. "We are close
to the schools, also."
The dollars for capital needs
dovetails perfectly with another
manifestation of those dreams,
the recent securing of a
$617,000 federal grant.
The grant dollars, which is
intended to transform the
health department into a
Federally Qualified Health
Center, are being poured into
manpower and services because

"We are the only place in the
state where they blended a
county health department with

said. "We are solving the issue
of a medical home for the work-
ing poor. And the quality in it, I
think, is important."
And the community, literal-
ly, reaps the benefits.
Kent noted statistics that
indicate if the 44 percent of
those currently leaving the
county for medical services stay
in the county, that could mean
$8-$9 million/ in economic
impact.
.Further, the $117,000 the
county put into the new build-
ing project resulted in a $3 mil-
lion building now owned by the
county.
That's a return of $31 for
every $1 invested. Every piece of
equipment or brick purchased

automatically becomes -the
county's.
"Talk about economic devel-
opment," Kent said, noting a
workforce of 62 at the depart-
ment.

Train Comes Too


Close for Comfort


Workers at GT Com's First
Street location thought they heard a
train coming Tuesday morning as
they went about their daily routines.
They were right! ,
A spur of A.N. Railways' tracks
lies just behind the office complex,
so hearing train traffic is not some-
thing new to workers. In fact, the
end of one of the rails is just a few
feet behind the building.
According to A.N. Railway
Superintendent Perry Adkison, the
train ended up closer than normal

car ran off the end of the rail while

Gold Card Banquet Recognizes Achievers
by Tim Croft I I!
Whatever irony is implicit in '
talking failure to a room full of high
achievers was more than balanced ,
on Monday night by the inherent
lesson.
Bob Kerrigan, a successful
Pensacola attorney and graduate of0
Port St. Joe High School, was the -
featured speaker for the Gold Card
banquet recognizing honor roll .
achievement y students during lo"
the school year.


Bob Kerrigan (left) was the featured speaker during the Gold Card banquet. Monday's Gold Card
banquet drew a full house to the Commons at Port St. Joe High School (above).


And to this room of achievers,
the "cream of the crop" as guidance
counselor Melissa Ramsey
described them during the evening,
Kerrigan spoke about failure.
About the inevitability of fail-
ure, accepting that as a fact of life
and learning to live fearlessly by
staring failure down, brushing
yourself off and taking the next
step forward.
"There isn't a day goes by that
I don't fail," Kerrigan said, while
recounting, with self-deprecating
humor, his various failures, athlet-
ically, musically, academically.
"It's not that I enjoy failure. I
hate to fail ... But I have learned
that failure is part of finding suc-
cess."
In other words, no gain without
some pain.
Kerrigan warned the students
that in the real world rushing
head-on to greet them, failure is a
brother to success.
By learning from failure, by
being willing to accept that failure
is part of the equation, inseparable
from .life. as oxygen, can, we truly
find success. Kerrigan said.
And the ability to handle
adversity, not success, is the key to
unlocking potential.
"We are what we are," Kerrigan
* said. "We are not what other people
think we are. You will never know
who you are until you fail and fail
again.
"You will never know what you
are capable of until you fail."
He cited Tiger Woods, who
completely overhauled his golf
swing several years ago despite
unparalleled success. The work
aimed at navigating the path to
establishing Woods as arguably the
greatest golfer who ever strode the
links.
And Michael Jordan, Kerrigan
noted, exchanged his sneakers for
spikes and a shot at baseball when
his hoops prowess was at its apex.
While Kerrigan did not blow his
own trumpet, former
Superintendent Walter Wilder did
the honors, extolling the crowd
about Kerrigan's many personal
and professional achievements,
reached only after a litany of fail-
ures Kerrigan was all too willing to
share.
Kerrigan closed with a person-
al power point presentation on
ideas to empower young lives.
Read everything, particularly
things that challenge, he told the
students. Don't cheat. Eliminate


prejudices, challenge your views.
Never be satisfied. Encourage
others who fail. Be fearless in the
sense that life should not be lived
in fear of failure.
And follow your heart, under-
standing that failure may tag
along, Kerrigan summarized.
The climax of the night was the
awarding of certificates and
plaques to students 145 in all -
who were named to the honor roll -2
either A-B, or all A honor rolls in
at least two of the three grading
periods thus far this year.
Of particular note was that
Katie Geoghagan was the lone sen-
ior who carried all A's for the entire
year.
Ramsey wrapped up the night
by making students and parents
aware of a new website established
by state education officials to pro-
vide comprehensive information on
student progress and aid in future
education planning.
At www.facts.org students can
retrieve a wealth of information,
including career guidance pro-
grams, planning for high school
courses, eligibility for Bright
Futures scholarships, college and
high school transcripts, higher
education options and degree
requirements and on and on.

Three Riders Earn Trip to



Tampa for State Competition


Bridget Parker, 16, Tony Elia, 11, and Frances Posell, 17, of Wewahitchka, will represent the county at
state 4H horse show competition in June. All three qualified for the state during recent district competition.


other horses his age, than any
speed issues.
Posell's horse, "Adian," is a five-
year-old Arabian quarterhorse.
"She's done an extremely good
job with a young horse," Carter said
df Posell.
That. Posell is in the ring, as
opposed to the .infirmary, is an
accomplishment in itself.
A little more than a year ago,
Posell broke her leg in five places'
while disinounting a horse.,
The injury ultimately required
several surgeries, and took Posell
away from any sort of 'horse riding
for more than six months.
Compounding that, Adian and
Posell were competing in their first
horse show, together or alone.
"Going to district for the first
time and qualifying for state made
me feel more secure, more confi-
dent," Posell said. "It made me feel
very good.
"I didn't care if I won ribbons or
not, Iwas just happy that I compet-
ed. After breaking my leg in five
places I praise God that I'm even in
the shape I'm in."

Frances Posell was competing
in her first horse show, and mere
months after completely recovering
from breaking her leg in five places,
requiring three surgeries.
Tony Ella, 11, was also compet-
ing in his first horse show, riding a
34-year-old horse to three blue rib-
bons.
Compared to Posell and Elia,
Bridget Parker is a horse show vet-
eran, though she and -her horse
both could have easily been on the"
disabled list as in the competition
ring.
Those three emerged from
recent district 4-H horse show com-
petition with their hands firmly on
the reins, headed to Tampa this
summer to represent the county at
state competition.
"They did a great job," said Roy
Lee Carter, county extension agent
and coordinator of 4-H activities.

their mark during the district
championships last month at the

The competition was divided
into junior and senior age groups,
though it is worth noting that in the
two categories in which the younger
and older kids compete against
each other, stake and keyhole rac-
ing, Gulf County riders rode off with
the blue ribbons.
"Both open competitions, we
won," Carter said with some pride.
All three ended up in the stir-
rups for state, which will take place
July 10-12 in Tampa.
Elia took home three first-place
medals, in pole bending, barrel rac-
ing and keyhole, in which riders
race around a course laid out like,
well, a "keyhole."
He won them all atop "Beauty",
a 34-year-old quarterhorse, fairly
old in horse years though, surpris-
ingly, horses can still be trained to
compete as late as 35 or 36 years of
'age, Calter said.
'The most fuimn is just competing
against everybody," Elia.said. "I was
very excited that I was even going
(to district or state) since this is my
first time.
"I was very surprised (to qualify
for state). Everybody says it will be
fun.".

munity. If you are looking for a

race, and finished fifth in pole bend-
ing and the barrel race during the
district championships.
Given, however, that her. 19-
year-old horse, "Buck,". was ailing,
the results were more than satisfac-
tory.
"He was sick that day, but he
did real good," Parker said. "The
stake race, that's the best race.
"My horse being sick, I was sur-
prised that I placed. I really had to
push him harder."
Parker will be heading down to
state with visions of a repeat pranc-
ing in her head.
Parker galloped away with one'
win and two fifths during last year's
state competition and improvement
is the catch-word.
To accomplish that, however,
Parker will have to overcome a frac-
tured arm, which she sustained
shortly, after the district champi-
onships.
The cast will stay on the right
arm until shortly, before -the "'state
competition, but Parker hasrit let i
the cast slow her down she
recently won a local horse, competi-
tion and she's confident of good
things in Tampa.
"I want first in everything and
I'll be happy," she said with a wry
smile. "There is always room for
improvement, no matter what you
do.
"I just love being able to work
with horses."
Posell had to overcome a major
break of her own to take fifth in key-
hole, second in confirmation and
second in Western pleasure at the
district championships.
The latter two categories have
more to do with the look of a horse,
his bearing and lines as well as dis-
cipline while slowly prancing
around the ring as compared to

Tracking A Species In Hopes of Answering Riddles


by Tim Croft
There could be worse class-
rooms.
On a postcard spring day, the
sky high, the sun incandescent, the
water crystalline, two intrepid stu-
dents are in search of the prover-
bial needle in a haystack.
But Erin McMichael and April
Norem, graduate students in the
ecology program at the University
of Florida, believe they know where
to look.
And faster than you can say
hare, their sought-after needle, a
green sea turtle is over the bow.
McMichael and Norem are try-
ing to fill in the blanks, to write the
missing pages in the biography of
sea turtles.
On the waters of. St. Joseph
Bay, they hope to discover, to
understand, one of the enigmas of
nature, the sea turtle, in all its
Latin variations.
And in doing so, they strive, as
so many scientifically-inclined
labor, to ultimately unlock a mys-
tery that could one day aid in those
who hypothesize and diagnose an
environmental illness before the
disease becomes mortal.
Their immediate patient just
* happens to be a green turtle. On
another day, maybe, it would be a
Kemp's ridley or a loggerhead.
'"They are an indicator species,"
Norem said while peering vigilantly
over the water. "It gives you an idea
of a changing environment. You
had turtles but now they are gone.
What changed?"
"They are part of a system and
everything is connected. And, per-
sonally, sea turtles are amazing."
And apparently, something of
"The Shadow" of the undersea
world.
That, McMichael and Norem,
explained is due in part to their
migratory habits, mating rituals
and complete lack of parenting























April Norem, left, and Erin McM
research.
skills.
The female lays her eggs in the
sand and at that point she, and her
mate for that matter, have fulfilled
their roles in the circle of life.
An adult female may not lay
eggs every year, and some years
might nest as many as four times.
The young turtles go through
an initial "frenzy" in the water and
then they are off to parts, well, not
entirely known.
Adult turtles can live long,
stretches in far-flung locales,'
uprooting at a whim after years,
the.climax arriving with the chance
to mate and have yung'uns.
;What is known is their impact
on the environment, particularly
sea gass beds, which are the nurs-
eries 'of the water.
Turtles munch on sea grass,
their grazing on a blade of grass
S igniting a chemical reaction which
essentially turns that blade into
grass on steroids, a vastly more
nutriently satisfying bit of food,
McMichael said.
There are also the nutrients
that seep into beach sand from un-
hatched eggs, creating a kind of fer-
tilizer for sea oats and other critical
vegetation.
S"They do have a big impact on


the environment," McMichael said.
'There are these big-picture things


ichael reel in a turtle they have caught in

migration, to changes in water tem-
perature.
Her methods of securing test
specimens come straight from the
old turtle fishing days, she said.
She and Norem drop a large-
mesh net over the side of their
boat, letting the net spread in a
straight line for its 150-meter
length.
They put orange buoys at des-
ignated lengths along the net to
warn off boaters and jet-skiers and
patrol for a turtle,
Often, as on a recent day, they
find other "treasure" such as
stingrays and the like.
But they have steadily mapped
out casting zones where they have
found turtles before and let those
zones be their guide. '
"You are looking for a set net-
ting area," Norem said. 'That's how
you stay consistent with your data,
how you compare your data."
Once they untangle the turtle
from the net, they set to work with
the data collection.
They measure the turtle, weigh
it, assign it a number and take
photographs.
If it proves to be a first
encounter between turtle and stu-


dents, they will attach a
radio/sonic telemetry tag, which

"But there is just so much
about them that we don't know. It's
very hard to keep track of them."
McMichael's master thesis is to
assemble, just such baseline data.
She's been doing it on the water of
the bay for about five years, the
first student to take to the water as
part of research undertaken under
a partnership between the
University of Florida and Eglin
AFB.
McMichael is painstakingly
tracking and recording her turtle

Gaddis Signs Scholarship with University of South Florida


Stephen Gaddis signs as his parents, Traci Gaddis and Garry Gaddis (seated left and right) look
on. Standing (left to right) are Keith Childs, Coach, Chris Early, Principal, and Kenny Parker, Coach.


Speed and innate grasp of the
intricate balance of physics that is
pole vaulting proved a high-flying
mix.
"He brought a lot of natural
ability," Childs said. "He had good
technique. And Stephen has the
aptitude and ability to put it all
together."
Gaddis has won the prestigious
Bob Hayes Track and Field
Invitational, which attracts high-
school athletes from seven states,
three straight years.
Gaddis has been the school
record-holder since a sophomore,
and has a personal best of 15-feet-
6 inches, a little more than three
inches away from the state record.
His goal asregionals are held
this week is to push 16 feet and
best the state record of 15-9 1/4
and cradle an elusive state title'
before his high-school career clos-
es.
"My first goal is to win the state
title, then I'd like to get the state
record," Gaddis said.
For a program, Gaddis contin-


ued what is becoming a growing run
of outstanding pole vaulters. The
school has produced three vaulters
in the past half-dozen or so years
who have gone on to propel them-
selves into the air for NCAA Division
I schools.
'To me, that helps keep the kids


coming," Childs said. "They know
when they get out there, there are
opportunities and we try to excel at
offering those opportunities.
"Our kids don't come to prac-
tice, they come to practice to get
better. They work hard. I expect a
lot and they give me a lot."

The bar inches ever higher for
Stephen Gaddis.
This week the Port St. Joe High
School senior parlayed his prowess
with a long. graphite pole into a
NCAA Division I track scholarship.
Combined with Bright Futures
money, earned in the classroom,
Gaddis came away with what was
essentially a full ride to the
University of South' Florida in
Tampa.
"It was a great place and I
thought the school's offer was fair,"'
Gaddis said. "They said it was the
most they've offered a freshman."
While South Florida's was the
only offer sent Gaddis's way during


the recent NCAA-mandated 14-day
recruiting window for track and
field, other schools scouting him or
making contact included Florida
State, Virginia Military Institute and
Cornell.
Not only did South Florida put
something on the table, the Bulls'
staff were ardent suitors. Vault
coach had some face time with
Gaddis at a meet in Tallahassee and


followed up on his promise to bring
Gaddis down for a visit.:'
"That made a lot of difference,"
Gaddis said. "He wanted me to come
for a visit and followed up on it.
"I'm excited. I'm excited to see
what will become of my skills."
Those skills, Port St. Joe vault
coach Keith Childs said, were evi-
dent when Gaddis first stepped onto
the high school track.,

RESTORING

decayed, broken, severely discolored,
chipped, or misaligned teeth. The dentist
prepares your tooth by reducing it in size
with a rotary instrument so that a replace-
ment tooth can fit over the existing tooth.
r Impressions of your teeth and sur-
rounding areas are made, and life size
models are constructed. Using these models, the actual crown

given a temporary crown to wear while the actual crown is being
constructed. After a "try-in" appointment, any necessary
changes are made, and the crown is then cemented into place.
Today, most crowns are made from a mix of metals and

__ Gulf Republicans

Attend State Meet
Gulf County Chairman Gary Ross attended the quarterly board meet-
ing of the Republican Party of Florida last week in Tallahassee for meet-
ings of-the RPOF Executive Board and meetings with Republican legisla-
tors, cabinet members and Governor Jeb Bush.
"It was a wonderful experience experience," said Chairman Ross. "It
was good to be with colleagues from around the state and see what a solid
position the Republican Party has heading toward the 2004 elections.
Also, everyone in' Gulf County worked so hard during the 2002 elections,
it was great to see the results of those efforts in our strong Republican
team of elected officials in action in our state capitol."
Chairman Ross was joined by State Committeewoman Sara Ross and
State Committeeman Allen Cox on the three day trip. Cox serves on the
RPOF Budget Committee and presented the Budget Committee report.
.The trip included numerous official RPOF meetings, a reception at the
home of Florida Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher, a brunch with
Florida legislators hosted by Attorney General Charlie Crist and
Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Charles Bronsori on
the top floor of the Capitol building, and a reception with Governor and
Mrs. Bush at the Governor's Mansion.

A FEW EASY WAYS TO TAKE THE HEADACHE OUT OF MOVING
By: Lisa Guilford
Moving from one house to another is always a challenge, but it doesn't have to be a nightmare.
Here are some simple tips on how to get it done with minimal stress and strain.
Look at all the alternatives: hiring a moving company,-for example, versus renting a truck and
doing it yourself. Whichever alternative makes most sense for you, get bids from more than one ven-
dor.
A few days before the moving company is scheduled to arrive or you're supposed to pick up your
rental truck, call to confirm that everything is on track to happen when it's supposed to.
Prepareyour-change of address cards in advance and send them out as soon as it's appropriate
to do so. The post office, utilities, companies and people you do business with, city hall, friends, rela-
JIB tives all should be notified of your move.
Get an early start on packing by concentrating on seldom-used items first. Each box should have
its contents and the room those contents belong in written on it clearly.
Take a hard look at things you seldom or never use and throw away as many of them as you can.
The more you throw away, the less you'll have to move. Every item you throw away is one less item to
clutter up you new home.
Use your extra towels and linens to protect breakables. When your supply of these things is
exhausted, crumpled newspaper makes an excellent substitute. Write "Fragile" on all appropriate
boxes.
Put your valuables (such as jewelry) and important documents (birth certificates, car titles, etc.)
aside in some safe place where they won't be misplaced.
When the house is empty, go back for a thorough final inspection. Check closets, crawl spaces,
basement, attic, out-of-the-way nooks and crannies of all kinds. Have a'second person make the same
inspection separately.
Clean your new home thoroughly before moving in. It's infinitely easier that way.
Decide in advance where you want the heavy furniture. Changing your mind after the mover; have
departed is no fun especially for your'back! -
Locate all fuses, circuit breakers, and water/gas and electrical valves. Record the meter readings
and check the smoke detectors. '
List the phone numbers of the local police and fire stations, doctors, nearby hospitals, etc. Put a
copy of your list near each phone. Above all, plan, plan, plan and plan some more. Make a schedule
you can live with, and then stick to it. Preparation and forethought will help you to keep everything
under control and finish the move with your sanity and your nervous system intact.

. Stroke is one of the most pre-
ventable illnesses overall, yet most
people can't even name a. warning
sign or a symptom for this poten-
tially life-threatening disease, In
order to educate the public about'
the potentially deadly effects of
stroke, May has been designated as
"Stroke Awareness Month", and will
direct'attention towards the general
knowledge and understanding peo-
ple have,'of stroke ,
Stroke can lead to debilitating
brain damage depending on the
severity of the stroke, and where it
happens in ,the brain. The most
common type of stroke occurs due
to a build-up of a plaque-like sub-
stance in the carotid arteries.
Through prevention, the pres-
ence of plaque can be detected and
treated prior to the stroke occur-
ring. Most stroke victims never
show a symptom or warning sign,
therefore increasing the importance
of prevention.

education and prevention of treat-
able diseases such as stroke,
abdominal aortic aneurysms,
peripheral arterial disease and
osteoporosis. Free educational
workshops are offered throughout
the communities in which we
screen, and are designed to help
people better understand and recog-
nize the risk factors, symptoms and
warning signs that can occur with
these treatable diseases.
Screenings 'are fast, painless
and offered at low cost. They involve
the use of ultrasound technology,
and scan for potential health prob-
lems related to: blocked arteries,
which can lead to a stroke, aortic
aneurysms which can lead to a rup-
ture, and plaque buildup in the
arteries in the legs, which is a
strong predictor of heart disease.
Also offered for men and women is a
bone density screening to assess
their risk for osteoporosis.
For more information on our
screenings, to schedule an appoint-
ment or to locate a site in your area,
please call 1-800-449-2249.

David L. Smith, Sr.
A Godly life ended on April 17,
when Bro. David L. Smith Sr., was
taken from us. There are three
steps to heaven-out of self, into
Christ, into Glory.
David Smith took these first
two steps in life and lived a beauti-
ful life in Christ, now he has taken
the third step where there is no'
more weeping, no pain, no' sorrow,
and no disappointment.
He was born June 21, 1921 to
Andrew Smith and the late Mother
Lelar S. Kennedy in Barth.
He attended public school in
Barth and later moved to Port St.
Joe and made it his home.
He was converted and saved as
a young man and joined
Philadelphia Primitive Baptist
Church where' he served as an
usher. He served in the United
States Marines Corps and was
employed at the St. Joe Paper
Company for many years until he
retired.
He was united in holy matri-.
mony to Ollie Scott, to which two
children were born, and in later
years married Covine Jackson, to
'which two more children were
born. His son David (Buddy) Smith
preceded him in death. In 1972 he
married Hattie B. Nelson. He will
greatly missed by all who knew
him-his devoted wife, family, the
church and many friends of the
community. I
He leaves to cherish his memo-
ry a devoted wife,' Hattie B. Smith;
five daughters, Pearlie Young and
husband, Nathaniel, and Cherry
Smith, both of Titusville, Dot

Natural


Gas Water Heaters


work faster and cheaper

than electric water heaters.
Water heaters are rated on their ability to quickly heat water.
This rating is posted on new water heaters to allow consumers
to compare usage costs and is called the First Hour Rating (the
number of gallons of hot water the heater can produce at
the desired temperature setting in the first hour of use).

Natural Gas Water Heaters are 40%

Faster AND 40% Cheaper than electric!
Generally 15% to 25% of all home energy in Florida
is used to heat an average of 66 gallons of water
per day for a family of four.


That's an annual savings of 143

Natural Gas Standard 229 therms $0.9687 .$221.95
ANNUAL SAVINGS WITH GAS $143.68

Costs and usage are representative and based on electric cost of $0.075 per kWh and
natural gas cost of $.9687 per therm. Actual operating costs will vary based on usage.

In A.A. Milne's last tale of
Winnie the Pooh, Christopher
Robin is going away. It is time for
him to leave behind the fantasy of
the forest and go out into the real
world of school. As children grow
up, they leave both their playful
fantasies and us behind, we are
often anxious. We wonder if they
will be able to master the world.
To help develop human beings
who are competent, pleased with
the world, and pleased with them-
selves, parents need to create and
sustain for our young children a
"middle place" between the security
of home and the excitement of the
world. In this psychological place,
children should be free to create
transitional objects such as teddy
bears and security blankets which
are at the same time real and imag-
inary. In this safe space, children
construct a bridge over which they
can connect their inner, imagina-
tive possibilities to the outer, real
world. When we foster this ability
in our children, their world .can
become meaningful and, a place
that fosters creative effort.
Children must know that they'
will not be abandoned, that we are
there for them even when their
mind and body are elsewhere. This
helps to set them free to imagine, to
create, to explore and to learn.
They should never be humiliated
by their efforts, failures or inade-
quacies, nor judged by the quality
of their work.
When we threaten, abandon,
are oblivious, or insensitive, we
narrow our child's room to grow. To
promote emotional growth and cre-
ative engagement with the world,
give a child security, be consistent,
allow for freedom and understand-
ing,' show kindness and apprecia-
tion. Your young ones will thrive.

Welcome back to the Port St.
Joe Middle School News. I hope
y'all had a great weekend and are
getting ready for summer. This'
week as we prepare for the end of
the year, and, produce, our term
projects, the 8th graders can
remember about our 8th grade
field trip on Friday. On this Friday,
the 8th graders took a trip to the
Challenger Space'Center. an exclu-
sive space simulation center. This
center was recently constructed in
remembrance of the Challenger's
crew. Throughout the nation it has
only 26 counterparts and two in
other countries. Students in the
simulation .went into "space" and
found and analyzed the asteroid
Koopy Koo. They were dependent
on their mission control-the other
half of the 90 8th grade students.
When students were not learning
real time space reaction skill, 'they
were viewing the planetarium or
the IMAX documentary on the
Space Station Mir and its crews.
After putting in a 12 hour day, stu-
dents returned, beleaguered but
,excited.
Our 6th grade class will be
participating in Gulf County's 3rd
annual Law Day observance today.
They will travel to the old, court-
house in Wewahitchka for this
event.
