Celebrate


Port St. Joe

90th Birthday

Bash Planned
by Tim Croft
One minute it's a one-day cele-
bration of country, the next a week-
long birthday party.
That pretty much sums up the
genesis of the city's Fourth of July
celebration this year, which has
crystallized, into a even-day
shindig beginning June 27 to honor
Port St. Joe's 90th birthday.
The metamorphosis has taken
but 10 weeks.
The journey started with a con-
versation among Sandra Chafin,
executive director of the county
Chamber of Commerce, Pauline
Pendarvis, city clerk, and assistant
city clerk Carol Davis.
"We wanted to get support to
put out the red-white-and-blue for
the troops," Davis recounted. "Let's
make the Fourth special."
It dawned on the trio that the
city was also celebrating its 90th
birthday and that the Fourth of
July was on a .Friday, which lent
itself to stretching the whole party
concept a bit.
Ard lickety split, the trio had-
the idea of stretching a one-day cel-
ebration to seven arid the annual,
Fourth of July hoopla into birthday
bacchanal.
"We had 50 people show up for
the first meeting," Davis said. "You
have some who fall by the wayside,
but the majority of people have
stuck with it."

Vamar Historic Preserve?


Public Meeting June 18th Will Consider Wreckas Archaeological Preserve


by Tim Croft
More than 60 years after the
S.S. Vamar sank just west of the'
channel into St. Joseph Bay, the
state of Florida is trying to raise its
profile.
State historians are currently
considering a proposal to have the
wreckage of the Vamar declared'
Florida's ninth State Underwater
Archaeological Preserve.
Such a proposal takes sail, in
large measure, from support and
input from the locals, according to
the Florida 'Division of Historical
Resources, which is the main rea-
son*a public meeting on the con-
cept is slated for 7 p.m.
Wednesday, June 18 in the
Centennial Building. .
"We need feedback on this
idea," said Roger Smith, an under-
water archaeologist with the
Florida Division of Historical
Resources. "We want people to
know what we've done to examine
this proposal and we want to get
some feedback."
The Vamar, also known locally
as the Lumbership for its final
cargo, sank in 1942 as she was
leaving Port St. Joe with a load of
lumber bound for the U.S. Naval
Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
While the reason for her,
demise is unknown, two theories
dominate: the first that the captain
and first mate were German and
scuttled the ship to block the har-
bor or destroy the ship's cargo, the
second that the Vamar was over-
loaded and a shift in weight caused
it take on water.
In any case, the wreckage set-
tled in what is now about.25 feet of
water in the Bell Shoal.
Ard now, following the sugges-
tion of Capt. Daniel Beck of Mexico
Beach, the state is, considering
making the site another of its
"museums in the'sea." ,
.The wreckage, Smith explain-
ed, meets the criteria for a an
underwater preserve.
It is accessible to the public,
the water not too deep or particu-
larly dangerous.
There is marine life present


that can be part of an interpreta-
tive presentation for divers and,
snorkelers.
It has archaeological features
that can also be interpreted and
secure and interesting historical
information at the site.
"It has a very interesting histo-
ry," Smith noted.
Built in England in 1919, the
ship was originally christened the
Kilmarnock and was later sold'to
Admiral Richard E. Byrd, who
renamed it the Eleanor Boiling, in
honor of his mother.
Byrd used the vessels a sup-
ply ship on his first expedition to
Antarctica in 1929, moving sup-
plies, men, sled dogs and an aero-
plane from New Zealand to the bot-
tom of the world.
It wasthe first metal boat used
on a polar expedition, Smith noted.
She was later sold to the
Vamar Steamship Co., of New
Jersey and renamed and spent sev-
eral years in non-descript service
before her date with destiny in
local waters.
Florida's underwater preserve
program began 16 years ago "as an
experiment," Smith rioted.
What state historians discov-,
ered, though, was that the program
was, for coastal communities, a
perfect marriage of hertage-, vaca-
tion- and eco-tourism.
There are currently eight such
preserves seven -are open, the
eighth in line to be open soon -
located from Pensacola to the
Florida Keys.
"Maritime history has not been
well interpreted, but we have one of
the longest coastlines in the coun-
try," Smith said.
'The preserves are intended to
educate the public about the
(importance of shipwrecks to our
past and to encourage the preser-
vation of these resources."
Once a site jumps through all
the necessary hoops and public
support and. input is a critical one
- the state will take up the job of
creating an underwater "tour."
"We interpret the site and help
the local community passively


manage it," Smith said.
"Designating it as a preserve would
facilitate access and encourage vis-
itors."


There would be interpretative
literature, laminated guides to
encourage exploration and a
bronze plaque on the site.


For instance, the site: of the
USS Massachusetts off Pensacola

Invitational Golf Tournament


For Over 30 Years Event Has Raised Funds for GCCC


$2 Million In Cocaine



Found Washed Ashore


by Tim Croft'
Somewhere out there some-
body is missing a whole lot of
cocaine.
A 55-pound bundle of cocaine
- wrapped neatly in 25 one-kilo, or
2.2 pounds, packages was found
washed ashore on Indian Pass
early Sunday morning.
With a street value of $100 per
gram, the cache had a potential
value of well over $2 million, before

it hit the seawater and, of course,
before Sheriffs investigators got
their hands on it.
"It's great to get it off the
street," said Gulf County Sheriff
Frank McKeithen. "But somebody
should have gone to jail. I wish we
could put (an individual) with it."
How long the cocaine had been
in the water is unknown. Several
'barnacles had become encrusted
on the plastic-and-tape bound


Twenty-five one-kilo (2.2 Ib.) packages were found washed
ashore at Indian Pass Sunday morning.


bundle, but barnacle growth is
determined by water conditions so
it is impossible to determine the
length of its stay in the water.
And unless the U.S. Customs
Service, which was contacted by
Sheriffs investigators, has worked
up a lead to trace the kilogram
packages emblazoned with "Sony"
decals, the case is at a dead-end.
Typically, when one package of
illicit drugs washes ashore it is
accompanied by others, McKeithen
said, but patrolling of the beaches.
peninsula and Pass on Sunday
turned up nothing further.
"We will probably just turn it:
over to Customs," McKeithen said
of the stash, which had gained a
pungent profile while in the water.
The bundle was found early
Sunday morning by Barbara Eells,
as she was making her turtle patrol
rounds.
"Thank God it was her or
somebody reliable like her,"
McKeithen said.
Sheriffs investigators respond-
ed, took possession of the contra-
band, tested it to determine.what it
was and contacted federal authori-
ties.
McKeithen noted that while it
is not out of the ordinary for drugs
to wash ashore on local beaches,
having either been dropped from
an airplane or boat, such discover-
ies are usually marijuana, not
cocaine.
And particularly in such large
amounts. McKeithen said it was
the largest stash of cocaine he had
seized, regardless of circum-
stances, during his years in law
enforcement.
"We've never had this kind of
quantity," McKeithen said. "I've
never seized that much. Somebody
is definitely missing it."


by Tim Croft
It has; over 30 years, become something of insti-
tution, as much a part of the annual landscape as the
confectioner's beaches, the bay and, well; a paper mill.
And after this year, like the skyline of the mill site,
it will disappear, relegated to a bygone era and the fis-
sures of memory..
The Tapper Invitational Golf Tournament, a fund-
raising and social event that for three decades marked
the arrival of fall as surely as moderate temperatures
and football, will breathe its last gasp in October.
With participation and interest waning the past
several years, the family of the late State Sen. George
Tapper has decided that the tournament's time had, to
put it simply, passed.
"It's sad," said David Warriner, son-in-law of the
late senator. "But we came to the realization that
everything runs its course in time,"
Simply, the terrain surrounding the tournament
had been littered with hazards for a two-day fund-rais-
ing event.
' When in\itees first teed it up at St. Joseph Bay
Country Club. such golf gatherings were more the
exception than the rule.
No%; Warriner noted. golftournaments abound
and thob; Who typically circled the date of the Tapper

Son their calendars could block off entire months with
invites to golf tournaments.
In particular, Rex Buzzett, chairman of the Tapper
tournament committee, noted the proliferation of sin-
gle-day scramble events.
The Tapper, and the Sherman Invitational in
Panama City, remain about the only multiple-day
tournaments in the area; they have been surrounded
and overwhelmed by the number of one-day events.
"The guys who came every year are just saturat-
ed," Warriner said.
Those golfers, in turn, were "the gravy" for the
fund-raising side of the tournament, which benefitted
the foundation at Gulf Coast Community College.
Skim off that cream and the line between actually
raising funds for the college and simply breaking even
becomes blurred.
"The tournament just doesn't raise the money it
once did," Warriner said, noting that last year's field
was 75, compared to 240-250 in the, tournament's
heyday.
Warriner added that in the good years, the Tapper
Invitational would raise $15,000-$20,000 for the col-
lege: last year it raised a fraction of that.

Right on Target Bet-



ter Days Lie Ahead

Three years ago Dr. Bernard F. Sliger, President Emeritus
and Director, Stavros Center for the Advancement of Free Enter-
prise and Economic Education at Florida State University, spoke
to a joint meeting of several of the area's local civic clubs and
made several bold and optimistic predictions at a time when
most people were anything but optimistic.
Everyone around here remembers the time just as if it were
yesterday. The paper mill had shut down in August of 1998 and
a dark cloud of uncertainty hovered over the entire county.
Then here comes Dr. Sliger riding his white horse into town
to tell us don't worry, be happy, because everything is going to,
be OK-just be patient for a little while and our economy will
take off. Dr. Sliger was right on target. We have seen an unbe-
lievable revitalization of our economy.
He pointed to two key factors when making those forecasts;
the energy of its citizens anrd our man-made and natural com-
parative advantages.
During last Thursday's meeting of the Port St. Joe Rotary
Club Dr. Sliger told Rotarians, "These two factors have worked
together quite well-each catalyzing the other."
"I'll make a final prediction now that even better days lie
ahead for you," Dr. Sliger continued.
This was a special visit for Dr. Sliger. It was his last speak-
ing engagement and final prediction since he is just a few weeks
away from retiring from FSU. "I wanted to end this speaking tour
on a positive note," he told Rotarians. "I wanted to end these
speaking engagements by visiting a place I truly love to visit."
It was easy to remember some of the details he reminded us
of. After all, I guess we did live through most of them-popula-
tion decline, friends and family packing up and, moving away in
search of jobs, folks losing their property-this list could go on
for a long time.
The flip side of all of this is that here we are just four years
later and Dr. Sliger is telling us that according to published
reports the per capital income has risen from $14,518 in 1998 to
$20,588 today in Gulf County. Furthermore the vast majority,
55.4%, of those jobs are from labor. "In other words Gulf Coun-
ty, citizens are working and making a decent living." Dr. Sliger
said ..
The, one "caveat" that Dr. Sliger did mention though was
Education. We have made great strides in this area also over the
past four years, but there are still some areas that concerned
him. He voiced the concern that the county still runs behind the
state and national average on ACT and SAT tests.
Dr. Sliger put it this way, "Increasing the excellence of your
schools and your children's academic performance is something
that you must address and address now. By so doing, you not
only augment the future economic. viability of Gulf Couhty, you
further increase the quality of life of your children, who, without
doubt, are your future!"
Dr. Sliger made it very plain that he believes in the future of
Gulf County. So much, in fact, he has purchased a condomini-
um on the golf course from a developer in Tallahassee. Hopeful-
ly we'll see a lot more of Dr. Sliger in days to come as he enjoys
retirement and visits this area on occasion.
Thanks for bringing us a ray of sunshine when we needed to
hear it most a few years ago and thanks for being right Dr. Sliger.
Obviously you did a great job at FSU and we wish you all the
best in your retirement.


Daughter-in-laws are different
than sons.
You take, for instance, what
they watch on t.v. Daughter-in-
laws don't seem to be too keen on
Walker, Texas Ranger, baseball
games or NASCAR races. That's
alright mind you, I'm just so
thankful to have Lindsey and Josh'
visit for a few days-I don't care
what we watch.
Last night I saw my first Miss
Universe Beauty Pageant. I didn't
know there was such .a thing.
Shoot, I didn't even know there,
were countries in the world named
Curacao and Barbuda! I'm pretty
;ure neither of those'places sent a
baseball team to the Olympics.
That's how a man figures world
geography
It only took a precursory
glance to realize that you had.to be,


tall and slender to be a Miss Uni-
terse contestant. Beauty and big
hair are a must. And \ou had to
have a lot of teeth And let me tell
you, I don't think a one of these
girls had a dot or a blemish! They
weren't Like any of the girls I grew
up with back home I can guaran-
tee you that!
I looked them over in that first
walk around and figured Miss
Australia had this thing in the bag.
In a room full of pretty girls, she
was the prettiest. I announced my
findings and, since we knew the
winner, asked if we could turn to
the Braves game.
People! You'd a'thought I'd
committed a mortal sin! Cathy and
Lindsey were laughing and carry-
ing on....they were actually enjoy-
ing this
I figured we'd seen all the girls.
We'd picked out the best one. We'd
been entertained by the dancers.'
We'd listened to the all female
band with the bright colored half
fiddles.... "Can't we just flip over
and see who is pitching for the
Braves?"


Cathy and Lmdsey were so
busy critiquing the evening gowns
that they didn't even hear me. [
leaned in a little closer. The young
contestant from Serbia and Nlon-
tenegro II haven't figured out yet
how she could be from both places
had a boa around the top of her
dress that had to be choking her.
And I swear it was alive when she
went bouncing down that runway
thing One girl had on an outfit
that obviously was her little sis-
ter's. Miss Venezuela was wearing
a dress that was so red it would
hurt your eyes.....
Cathy favored the more tradi-
Stional look,. while Lindsey thought
some of the wilder gowns were o:k.
Neither liked what Miss USA had
on. "What is-Miss Australia wear-
ing?" I thought if I've got to sit
through this I might as well make
a contribution to the conversation.
"She's. out of zit. They're only
showing the top fifteen."
'You're.kidding mel- Miss Aus-
tralia, the best looking woman in
this whole contest, didn't make the
top fifteen! Something is bad


Strong here! Who judges these
things..... Ray Charles and Ronnie
Milsap?"
The ring announcers made a
big production of mtroducing each
of the fifteen finalists. They all took
that long walk down the runwa)
built out into the crowd. The most
exciting part of the whole evening
was when Miss South Africa
tripped-I 'thought she was going
nose down on the f or but she
caught herself at the f st second.
I immediately thought of
Trudy Cunningham back in 1965:
She .was trying to do a. twirl-
around on the front of the stage
during the annual Miss McKenzie
High Beauty Pageant. She lost her
balance and fell backwards into
the first row! She didn't win the-
"Miss Grace" Award that year but
two of the judges gave her a nine
on the fall!
That was the same,,beauty
contest where l'they asked, Pam
Collins what she planned to do
after graduation and she,
answered, "World peace."

A Weekend of Fishing and the Big Ones Were Bitin..


OH, THE POWER OF the
press!
I now have a fishing trip
under my belt and a can of choco-
late substitute.
My brother-in-law, Howard
Wooden invited me for a weekend
of fishing in his private lake from
the comfort of his private dock, up
near Perry, Ga.
Number one son, Ray, volun-
teered to drive me to Perry, and I
was all set for a weekend of fish-
ing and watching the geese.
Marie Romanelli brought me a
can of "Carob" powder, which
takes the place of chocolate or
cocoa without the harmful quali-
ties (for me) of chocolate.
It says, right on the can, that
"Carob" powder was first tried by
English royalty, who substituted
it for the ever-present tea.
His name was Byron Chat-
field, a member of the distin-
guished Queen's regiment.
If the "Carob" drink was good
enough for a member of the
Queen's regiment, it ought to be


good enough for me, don't you
think?
I just got the substitute and
am anxious to try it.

AS FOR MY FISHING trip
and its success, I have pictorial
proof as to its successful conclu-
sion, and here it is:
..,- .. ., W-
;. *- ,- i


This photo has not been re-
touched in any way!


We actually caught 57 bream
and shellcracker; all of them about
3/4 pound each!
And the wind blew, a gale
almost as hard as a hurricane,
hampering our catch considerably.
We could hardly tell when we had
a bitel
But we managed.

IT WAS FISHING, gentle-
man-style, too. Howard has an
unofficial, part-time game warden
in his employ, by the name of
Edgar.
Edgar was everywhere at once,
baiting our hook and taking off our
fish, when he got the chance.
But most of all, he kept us
entertained with his nonstop con-
versation. We started fishing at
9:00 in the morning, and stayed.
with it until 2:00 in the afternoon;
and Edgat talked, .non-stop, all
that time.
SThere's nothing Edgar had
rather be doing, than fishing or
hunting.
Even Frenchie and Ray's wife,


ETAOIN SHRDLU


Written by Wesley Ramsey


Sue, fished and caught fish.
Frenchie caught the first one, but
it was just beginner's luck. She
hasn't been fishing in 20 years!
The big ones were biting

AFTER WE FINISHED fish-
ing, Howard and his wife Rachel
took us out to supper-it was list-
ed as "dinner" on the menu.
They took us to '"he Langston
House" in Hendersohville, about
10 miles south of Perry, on U. S.
Hwy. 41.
'The Langston House" is in a
reconverted southern mansion,
'built in 1838.
We were "uptown"!
The old mansion was missed


by General Sherman, in his march
through Georgia, torching every-
thing he passed.
The floors were made out of
10" wide heart pine boards without
a knot in them. The walls were
made of the same material.
Of course, we didn't go to the
house to look at the old lumber of
unbelievable dimensions or
unavailability today, the huge
cedar trees,' or the dogwoods, or
the magnolias or the stately old
pine trees. We went for the good
food!
If you are ever in that vicinity,
I can recommend "The Langston
House" to you without any hesita-
tion.


And, oh, bring your billfold or
your unlimited credit card with
you!

I'VE BEEN TO WMY brother-
in-law's house many, times; have
been taken out to eat many times
and enjoyed the quiet and solitude
of his 500 acre "working ranch"
many times, but I don't think I
have ever enjoyed a visit more than
this time.
We weren't bothered with cows
all over the place (he sold them all
and just raises hay, now). The
many trees in the place were just
at their greenest after rejuvenating
at spring-time and everything was
green and gorgeous.
The 5,000 begonia plants he
had set out around the house were
in bloom and the geese had
hatched off a new crop of goslings
to swim in the lake.
It was a peaceful and satisfy-
ing sight even though the hum-
mingbirds hadn't congregated at
his feeders yet.

Veterans Nursing Home, Habitat Plan & Highway Top Gulf Agenda


Gulf County commissioners
dealt with several matters of busi-
ness Tuesday evening during their
regular meeting with the veterans
nursing home, draft habitat for

Starting with the good news for
veterans-Clifford Sims Memorial
Veterans Nursing Home. Gulf
County Veterans Service Officer Bo

complex was nearing completion.
In fact, he said the structure was
98% complete at this time and
should be totally finished very
soon.
Williams said dedication cere-
monies are set for either July 18 or
24, depending on which date the
governor is able to attend. The 120

Alzheimer's patients' and another
60 general treatment patients.
Williams explained to commis-
sioners that current plans as he
understands them are for the home
to open in August. Patients will be

'Like I said earlier, the girls

But I must admit it got to be a little
same old, same old, as each girl
paraded down. the runway. Without
the big banner tied across their
chest I couldn't tell Miss Greece
from,Miss Canada. They all looked
suspiciously alike And the situa-
tion became totally confusing when
they put them all in the same col-
ored bathing suits.,.. I kept think-
ing you could tell the players apart
here a lot easier if they'd sew num-
bers on their backs and hand out

HABITAT CONSERVATION PLAN
Gulf County Chief
Administrator Don Butler gave the
board some unexpected good news
concerning the necessary Habitat
Conservation Plan needed for the
continuance of beach driving along
the Cape on Eglin Air Force Base
property.
When this question came up
several weeks ago the board antici-
pated they would have to invest as
much as $30,000 to put together
the plan which U.S. Fish and
Wildlife is requiring in order for
beach driving to be allowed by Gulf
residents.

Dominican Republic, Miss South
Africa (despite the slip), Miss
Venezuela, Miss Japan and the girl
with the boa made the final five. I
kept watching the way Miss
Venezuela eased across the stage. I
believe she would have made a
crackerjack shortstop!
They asked one of the girls
abouther plans and future goals.
She quickly answered, "World
peace." I was beginning to "realize"
a similarity in all beauty contests.
'Course, I must admit, unlike the
McKenzie High event, these girls
appeared to be happy when anoth-
er girl was chosen ahead of them!
I can't remember now who
won. But she was tall and slender.
With lots of hair and teeth. And her
answer was "world peace."
It wasn't as interesting as a
ball game but I spent some good
time with my daughter-in-law, I
amazed my wife by still being there
when they brought out the crown
and I learned the names of a couple
of new countries.
The evening wasn't a total loss.
I'm not sure Miss' Australia
would share my view.....

George Washington, Robert

"Resolved that the flag of the

union be thirteen stars, white in a

Before Malone. could get seated
good Port St. Joe City'
Commissioner John Reeves stood
up and told the board he was famil-
iar with the Public Broadcast pro-
gram partly because the film crew
had spent about four hours in his
store interviewing and filming him,
visitors and customers.
"I didn't see it," said commis-
sioner Billy Traylor.
"You didn't 'miss nothing,"
Reeves responded.
He went on to explain that the
program put a very negative spin
on things. Yet, as he explained,
there was nothing negative said the
entire time the film crews were in
his store. Then again, they didn't
report any portion of the interviews
filmed on that day either.
Reeves compared the filming to
the time the St. Petersburg Times
came by and interviewed him for
several hours. During those hours
of interview he said only one nega-
tive thing and that was the only
quote that ended up in print.


Reeves reminded the board
they were going to have to keep
things in check throughout the
development process.
That process includes a DRI

Gulf County Finances Grant Writer


by Royce S. Rolstad, III
At a special County
Commission meeting held on May
29, commissioners made the deci-
sion to provide $25,000 to the
county Economic Development
Council to finance a grant writirig
service for the county.
Along with assisting the county
in writing grants, the service will
also be provided to the cities of Port
St. Joe and Wewahitchka.


The idea of having a grant writ-
ing service was brought to the
Commission's attention by EDC
Director Alan McNair who said
many groups and organizations will
benefit from this service.
.Pam Rimes, marketing director
for The Eutaw Group, the grant
writing service hired by the county
said it can offer quite a bit to Gulf
County.
"Our No. 1 passion is Gulf


County," said Rimes, "It would take
someone full-time to write propos-
als. Whatever funds they need, we
are at their disposal."
McNair felt commissioners
were aware of the benefits of this
service.
"It is a giant step forward for
the county," said McNair, "which
will result in millions of dollars
coming into the county to help sup-
port needs fueled by growth."


The Eutaw Group provides
services in two primary areas:
assisting small business develop-*
ment and assisting with and writ-
ing all types of'grants state, fed-
eral and private endowments.
.Don Butler, Chief Administra-
tor of Gulf County said he feels it is
a great idea for the county to have
a grant writing service.
In the last several years, Butler
has applied for grants for trans-
portation and parks and recre-
ation.
Butler said' the county has
received at least $4 million in grant
money for various projects the past
few years.
McNair feels this new service
will provide two important things
for Gulf County -jobs and money.
And though the county's con-
tract with The Eutaw Group is for
only one year, McNair said his goal
for the year is to get $10,000,000 in
grant money into the county.
These funds are, McNair said
"...Free money to help improve our
county."

Mexico Beach to Let Voters


Decide When and How to Vote


by Tim Croft
The question of when and how
voters cast their ballots should be
left in the hands of the voters.
That was the opinion of the
Mexico Beach City Council on
Tuesday asr members considered
whether to move the city's voting
day from November to May at the
behest of Bay County Supervisor of
Elections Mark Andersen.
Andersen has requested the
county's eight municipalities move
their election days to the same
Tuesday in May, creating a "Super
Tuesday" balloting across the coun-
ty.
Mexico Beach, which holds its
elections later in the year than any
other municipality in the county,
would require a revision of the city's
charter to facilitate the change in
election days,
The council determined, howev-
er, that the question was best left in
the hands of voters.
"We do not want to make this
decision," said Mayor 'Kathy'
Kingsland. "The citizens should
,have the right to decide."
;' The council charged the city
attorney with crafting an ordinance
which would establish a 'referen-
dum on the issue, including pro-
posed ballot language, to be placed
before voters on the November bal-
lot.
The council will take up the ref-
erendum in the next two months.
"We're ahead of the game," said
city administrator Paul Sabiston.
"I'm glad we started early" on the
process.
Andersen made the request of
cities for several reasons.
Economically and logistically, it
makes sense to have all eight cities
vote on the same day.
There is also the argument that
the "Super Tuesday" concept, which
has become something of a national
trend, would create more interest
and voter turnout.
Andersen sent a letter to the
cities informing them that in the fall
all current contracts with his office
would be canceled and replaced
with one of two contracts.
For those joining the "Super
Tuesday" effort, the Supervisor of
Elections would continue to fully
operate all elections.
However for those cities which
choose not move their election
days, Andersen said his office
would only be able to provide limit-
ed support, leaving the operation of
elections largely up to cities.
"It's easier for the whole elec-
' ttion process," Sabiston said of
Andersen's opinion on the "Super
Tuesday" concept.
In other business during
Tuesday's regular monthly meeting:
The city continues forward in
its information-gathering on


garbage collection and the potential
of contracting with a private compa-
ny for the service.
A recent informational meeting
spearheaded by the Citizens
Advisory Committee was, its chair-
man said, "very productive."
The city is trying to determine
what the actual current cost of pro-
viding the service in-house is in
order to provide some comparison
with bids currently being solicited
from area contractors.
Associated issues, such as the
salary scale among sanitation work-
ers, are also being put under a
microscope.

Nolan Maddox gives his marine biology students a lesson in sea turtles during a camp held on St.
Joe Peninsula last week. The students came down from Atlanta for five days of "lab work."


by Tim Croft
Nolan Maddox's classroom is
four walls of brick and mortar out-
side of Atlanta.
His laboratory has become St.
Joseph Bay.
Maddox, who teaches biology
to students grades 3-12 in
McDonough, Ga., a suburb of
Atlanta, has in the past three years_
begun bringing kids south to Gulf
County during the summer for a
little hands-on exposure to eco-sys-
tems they read about in textbooks.
His five-day camps have grown
exponentially. They attracted a
couple of dozen'three years ago.
Last week, 79 students in grades 9-
12 were immersed in the watery.
local environment.
In two weeks, roughly the same
number of youngsters in grades 3-
7 will have their turn.
'This solidifies what they learn
in class," Maddox said. "This is the
meat' for what they learn in' the
books.
"The hands-on experience
imprints what they've learned in


them."
Then, scanning across the bay
from the Old Saltworks Cabins,
where the group is staying, Maddox
added, 'This is a laboratory."
The teenagers, a mix of private-
school, public-school and home-
schooled students, pay for the
opportunity to make the trip south.
They pry themselves away from
televisions, cell phones and com-
puters, to spend five days in what
for them is the equivalent of the
wilderness.
"It lets you get away from
everything at home," said Steven
Stafford, a 14-year-old private
school student "It's different from
what you are learning in books
because you are seeing it."
The week's schedule is brim-
ming. Kayaking, canoeing and
snorkeling at the state park, a trip
to Gulf World, turtle and shark
encounters at a marine center in
Panama City, marine scavenger
hunts and lectures were just the
highlights of the week's itinerary.
"When you're reading a text-


book you don't always process
What you are reading," said
Kathryn Carp, a 16-year-old home-
schooler. "Here; you can see the
wildlife up close. It's fun seeing it.
It's pretty cool."
And it's a five-day tutorial on
an environment which holds con-
siderable mystery to youngsters
who, in general, live a life of pave-
ment, cars and bustle.
"We learn about the ecosystem
and its importance," Maddox
explained. "We learn about the
wildlife. They learn about the ani-
mal classifications.
"You can hear them say, This
makes sense. This is neat. Now I
understand what you taught me in
the book."
There are larger lessons to be
gleaned as well. Maddox hopes not
just to inform his charges on the
wildlife 'many have never encoun-
tered, he seeks to instill a sense of
place in the wider world.
'They need to understand their
responsibility to and the impor-
tance of the environment," Maddox

years, Maddox was looking for a
way to expand the curriculum, par-
ticularly to give youngsters a more
up-close-and-personal examination
of the oceans' ecosystems.
"It's the area that is least
known by a lot of the kids and it
has the most diversity" of flora and
fauna, Maddox noted.
Enter his old friend, Lanny.

Blair. The two worked together with
the railroad in and around Atlanta
for some 14 years before Blair came
south and bought the Old
Saltworks and Maddox entered the
teaching profession.
Maddox had found the lab to
match his classroom. He brain-
stormed the idea for a camp and
soon found the concept had allure
for youngsters and parents alike.
"These are kids who wanted to
learn and came after school was out
to do it," Maddox said. 'They are
not earning credits, they are having
a learning experience while having
fun.
"We've got kids who have never
been in an environment like this


Mexico Beach from Pg. 5


In the traditional classroom there are few opportunities to have
encounters with sharks (left) or to drop a line in the bay and bring
in a fish (above).


where they are learning and enjoy-
ing it at the same time."
The camps attract a mix of stu-
dents Maddox said roughly 50
percent were home-schooled, 45
percent came from private schools
and the remainder attended public
schools.
The program just continues to
expand, including two camps this
year. Maddox said the list of those
hoping to participate seems to grow
each year.
The groups arrive on Sunday
and return to Atlanta on Friday.


Some, it appeared on Thursday
afternoon, weren't exactly looking
forward to returning home.
"I like being in the woods," said
17-year-old Lee Nix while adding
that one thing he could do without
were mosquitoes that seemed, capa-
ble of carrying him away.
"You learn that you are in their
(wildlife's) habitat and you have to
be careful. If I go to pick up a horse-
shoe crab and it pinches me, I learn
better than reading about it in the
book,"

"There will be several more
public hearings," Kingsland said.
'"This will not be a decision made at
the next meeting."
The state audit of the city's
operations, requested in a citizens
petition, moves steadily along.
Sabiston said the auditors
should be finished with their field
work in two to three weeks, with a
preliminary report likely to arrive
30 days subsequently.
City staff has already spent in,
man-hours more than $7,000 in
addressing audit issues. The cost of
the audit must.be borne by the city.
"Things are moving along,"
Sabiston said. 'Things are going
pretty well."
The transmission line bring-
inig water from Bay County to
Mexico Beach has been completed
and the city has received permis-
sion to flush and test the line.
Sabiston estimated it would be
three to five weeks before the


Florida Department of
Environmental Protection certified
the line for use.
"Maybe by mid-July we'll have
new water in place," Sabiston said.
Council members awarded
the contract for construction of
canal boat slips to Gaddie
Construction, the lone bidder with
a bid of $26,838.
The work entails setting 62 pil-
ings, constructing, finger piers and
installing electrical lines for boat
hook-up.
The city moved ahead on an
ordinance which would ultimately
mean that city employees would be
offered a new pension plan option.
J. Patrick Howard of the
Community Development Council
informed council members that bed
tax collections for the first seven
months of the fiscal year are 9.26
percent above the same period of
the year before.

Arts Council Reaches 1st Birthday with Vision


by Tim Croft
It has been akin to witnessing
Jack tossing those magic beans in
the ground and watching a
beanstalk bolt for the sky.
In the meeting room at the
Garden Club of Port St. Joe last
June it was merely a germ of an
idea.
It has spread like a cultural
contagion through the area.
Linking Gulf, Franklin and
eastern Bay counties like a framed
canvas of dots, the Gulf Alliance for
the Local Arts (GALA) has com-
bined a mission of need with every
ready energy to emerge, in just 12
months' time, as a dynamo for the
arts.
Arts education initiatives. A
healthy bank account before a for-
mal membership drive, a payoff for
forward progress. Theater and
opera performances. An art auction
and sale.
Hardly baby steps for an
organization that a year ago almost
to the date was little more than the
combined brains and desire of a
couple of dozen hardy souls.
Whiph is probably why two rep-
resentatives from GALA have been
extended an invitation to partici-
pate in a conference in Miami this
weekend dealing with arts in edu-
cation.
Among other items on the
agenda, they were asked to provide
Sa presentation on the groundwork
and growth of GALA.
"It's hard to believe," said Kim


Harrison, president of GALA, who
along with Ann Comforter will be in
Miami this weekend. "It's very
exciting. I didn't know it would be
at the magnitude it already is."
Pam Selton, executive director
of the St. Joe Community
Foundation, was among those in
attendance at that initial meeting
last June.
"The initial interest was that'
(there) was an opportunity, an art
opportunity, a cultural opportuni-
ty," Selton said. "There was a lot of
energy. That energy drew us in and
got us interested."
Selton recalled several conver-
sations with Sara Joe Wooten,
supervisor for curriculum with Gulf
District Schools, concerning the
importance of exposing youngsters
to art.
Wooten and Selton had remi-
nisced about their own childhoods,
which were dotted with museums
and exposure to arts of all varieties.
Against that backdrop, the
early efforts'of the folks at GALA,
before there even was such a cre-
ation, were eye-opening.
"You have a great group of peo-
ple, but who would have thought"
how far they'd come in a year,
Selton said. "It speaks so highly of
what they've done. They were able
to get the energy going and work
together, which is huge."
The effort has so impressed the
foundation that officials earlier this
year donated $5,000 tq GALA,
becoming the arts alliance's first


Wewahitchka Commission



Considers Garbage Complaints


Charter Lifetime Benefactor.
The donation dovetails perfect-
ly with the foundation's mission of
using dollars from sales of Arvida
development to address quality of
life issues in the community.
And the money was significant
to GALA on several levels.
The foundation's support
serves as something of an affirma-
tion for the arts alliance, and, the
hope would be, to serve as some-
thing of a beacon to private chari-
table and philanthropic organiza-
tions.
Further, as state and federal
budgets tighten, funding for the
arts has come under seige.
"(The SJCF has) been very sup-
portive," Harrison said, "because
they believe the arts are important
to a community.
"It's important to have them
behind us because all arts agencies
are having to look outside of public
dollars, to corporations and foun-
dations, for support."


The arts alliance, before any
fund-raising drive for membership,
has also welcomed its first Charter
Individual Benefactors. Jay and
Heather Rish recently gave GALA a
check for $2,500.
As with the St. Joe Community
Foundation, the Rish donation bol-
sters a bank account which, after a
recent art auction, is already in five
figures.
"We hope that other people will
follow" the lead of the Rishes and
the foundation, Harrison said.
'These are community leaders and
business leaders."
These early dollars are ear-
marked for several projects, partic-'
ularly expanding arts education
programs in the area.
The district's annual "Arts in
the Sun" program each spring has
already been expanded to both
ends of the county with the assis-
tance of the STCF and, this year,
GALA.
The aim in the next couple of


years is to further broaden its
reach into Franklin County, for
instance and scope.
"It will get bigger every year
and, hopefully, become a week-long
event instead of just one day,"
Harrison said.
Summer arts programs in
Franklin and Gulf County were bol-
stered with supplies and volunteer
instructors.
The Pensacola Opera will pres-,
ent a program, "Opera Rocks!" in
area schools next year.


Beyond education programs,
the alliance has sponsored plays at
Port St. Joe Elementary and the art
auction, which drew works by
artists from around the Southeast,
have proved successful.
As part of the City of Port St.
Joe's 90th birthday celebration, the
arts alliance will hold a luau, with
entertainment provided by
"Stainless Steel," a steel-drum
band from Bay County.
Sort of like watching the
beanstalk sprout.

by Tim Croft
Wewahitchka city commission-
ers spent much of Monday night's
bi-monthly regular meeting dis-
cussing issues regarding the city's
garbage pick-up services.
The city has received a number
of complaints in recent weeks, after.
Waste Management Co., Juggled
routes and employees.
In essence, there were spots in
the city Which were not having
their garbage picked up, said city
manager Don Minchew.
However. Mlichew was not in a-
position at this time to assess
blame for the problems.
'"We are going to monitor the
number of complaints, document
them and then sit down with Waste
Management," Minchew said. "I'm
trying to see if we really have a
problem. I'm not going to say we
have a problem until we document
the complaints."


Commission
IN OTHER BUSINESS
The board rejected a request
by Anthony Varona to be paid for
148 hours of sick leave he had
accrued at the time of his termina-
tion on May 5th. The board voted
3-2 to reject the request with
Commissioners Traylor, McLemore
and Peters in favor of the motion to
reject and Commissioners Barnes
and Fox opposing.
Commissioners accepted a
gift of one half acre of land, donat-
ed by Steve Gibbs, for the location
of the new Wetappo Creek
Volunteer Fire Department. The
board also accepted the low bid of
$17,975 by Wyatt Shiver
Construction Company to build a
40 X 60 pre-engineered building on

Minchew offered that part of
the problem could be that new
crews are working routes in differ-
ent sequence, or arriving in areas
at different times, leading to
missed areas.
"We will review the complaints
to see if we have a problemi"
Minchew said.
In other business:
Commissioners passed two
resolutions concerning the city's
banking accounts to conform to the
change in names at Wewahitchka
State Bank. which is now called
BankTrust of Florida.
Approved a setback variance
for a pump house at a residence on
Second Street.
Reviewed the engineering
services contract with Preble Rish
as part of the application with
USDA Rural Development for a
grant to expand the city's
water/sewer system.

the site.
Agreed to a request by
Attorney David Carl Gaskin to
allow him to present information to
the board attorney, Tim
McFarland,'concerning possible lit-
igation,against the county. The liti-
gation would be filed by an uniden-
tified client who has an issue with
a roadway. Gaskin was in hopes
the board might look at the issue
though their attorney and possibly
avoid litigation. The board agreed
to the request.
Board members agreed to a
request to file for EDC grant funds
for roadway, turn lanes and sewer
for the Presnell development proj-
ect.

The city tossed in some
money, as did the Constitution
City Business Association. The
county Tourist Development
Council awarded a grant. A host of
local businesses, organizations
and individuals chipped in dollars,
from hundreds down to $20.
"Financial support has really
come in," Davis said.
And spawned a steamroller.
Lining up to help steer were a
veritable Who's Who of participat-
ing local businesses and organiza-
tions.
Arvida/St. Joe, the Gulf
County Public Library, the newly
formed Gulf Alliance for Local Arts,
the Port St. Joe Marina, St. Joe
Peninsula State Park, Decorative
Flooring, Aztec/Big Wheel
Recycling, downtown merchants
and local churches only skim the
surface.
"Everybody has done their own
little thing and everything has fall-
en into place," Davis said, her own
amazement at that feat barely con-
tained.
The week will include a fishing
tournament, luau, historic presen-
tations, artistic performances,
antique car show, celebration of
food and local restaurants, art
exhibits, downtown block party
and a parade.
Not that any of this birthday
bash stuff will eclipse the celebra-
tion of country.
There'll still be patriotic main-
stays such as the Blessing of the
Fleet, flag folding ceremony and
performances of patriotic music.
"(The patriotic theme) is still
the mainstay of the party," Davis
said.
The preparation work, Davis
said, is down to the "nitty gritty
details" as June 27 looms neai.
Any civic groups, or non-profit
organizations which would like to
set up a booth for the Fourth of
July can still contact Davis at City
Hall.
As the finishing touches are
being applied, Davis said talk has
already turned to doing it all over
again next year. .
"Once you lay the foundation,"
Davis said. "We'll see what the
community thinks."

and up, and their parents and will
feature several men's and women's
college and junior college coaches.
"This is an opportunity for par-
ents and kids to listen, talk to and
be educated by high-profile coach-
es," said Dr. David Langston, pres-
ident of the foundation named in
honor of his brother.
And the workshop is about
much more than basketball, just as
the foundation is about much more
than handing out scholarships.
The workshop will offer young-
sters and parents insight into pre-
paredness for success at the next
level, about empowering students
to strive to achieve, to continually
progress upon the learning curve of
life.
"This is about what it takes to
be prepared for the next level, aca-
demically and athletically,"


Tapper Tourney


foundation wanted to drive down
was one that involved arm-twisting
and cajoling to fill the field.
"We want people to play in the
tournament, enjoy it, support the
college and that's it," Buzzett said.
The inevitable conclusion, after
considerable agonizing, was to fold
up the tent.
"The last several years it has
been a struggle," said Dr. Bob
McSpadden, the president of GCCC
who assumed the role of bartender
for the pre-tournament party on
Friday nights at the Tapper man-
sion.
"I think I've been to most of
them," McSpadden continued.
"(Bartender) has been my role as
long as I can remember.
"I will miss it. It was an impor-
tant social event where I got to meet
and know so many of the great
folks in Gulf and Franklin counties.
I will really miss that."
The Tapper Invitational, in fact,
began as a strictly social affair, a
chance for friends and business
associates of the senator to com-
mune for a weekend over dinner
and the links.
"It didn't become a fund-raising
event until after, Senator Tapper
passed away" -in 1986, Warriner
said.
The connection to GCCC was a
natural given the significant largess
the Tapper family, individually and
through their foundation, has
bestowed on the college over the
years.
The foundation recently passed
the $1 million mark in donations,
roughly half of which have gone to
the college foundation.
"That ($1 million in donations)
was a huge benchmark for us to
reach and that, in part, is through
the golf tournament," Warriner
said.
Mix in state matching dollars
tied to those donations and the bot-
tom line for the foundation's efforts
on behalf of the college is impres-
sive.
The decision to end the Tapper
Invitational carried with it a golf,
bag worth of emotions.
"We talked about it quite a bit
before (the tournament committee)
met and we announced it would be
the last," Buzzett said. "It's some-
thing that had to happen.
"It's sad and bittersweet. The
people around here looked forward
to it every year. The country club,
you can't say enough about them
, letting us take over for a weekend.
The Ladies Golf Association looked
forward to doing it every year. It's
just going to be bittersweet."
Adding to the angst, at least for

.. ~ mA BhA ~ a o .


Warriner, was the factthat the deci-
sion came shortly after Warriner
was named chairman of the col-
lege's Board of Trustees.
"It was ironic and it was,
tough," Warriner said. "But our
foundation will be generous to the
college, golf tournament or no golf
tournament.
"The legacy will somehow, in
some way, have to continue, to fill
the gap."
Buzzett said foundation folks
are already batting around ideas
for future fund-raising efforts,
which, may or may not center
around a tee box and green.
One upshot to the announce-
ment that the tournament will end
this year could be a bolstering of
the final field, with the tournament
tobe held Oct. 3-5.
The tournament field will be
capped at 144, to allow for a shot-
gun start of 72 golfers a foursome
to a hole in the morning and 72 in
the afternoon each day.
Buzzett said invitations will be
preferred first to those who have
been staunch supporters of the
tournament through the years.
Warriner and Buzzett would
not be surprised if, given the fact
this -is the final trip around the,
links, they will be turning away
folks.
"We will probably fill up in the

Broadening its vision, and mis-
sion, the Norris D. Langston Youth
Foundation's annual program will
provide not one but two days of
information and celebration this
year.
An educational basketball
workshop, hosted by the founda-
tion and the Florida Department of
Juvenile Justice, will be held in
"The Dome" at Port St. Joe High
School from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.
ET on Wednesday, June 25.
That is the day before the foun-
dation's annual banquet, which
will feature keynote speaker Jim
Home, Florida's Education
Commissioner, and Laura Branker,
deputy chief of staff for Gov. Jeb
Bush, who will be a presenter.
The Wednesday workshop is
open to boys and girls, grade six


Langston said. "It's about athletics,
but academics come first. The stu-
dent is No. 1 in student/athlete.
"The full purpose is to educate
kids on what they need to do to
prepare themselves for the next
step, whether that next step is mid-
dle school, high school or college."
The workshop is free and
youngsters from throughout the
area served by the Langston
Foundation Bay, Calhoun,
Franklin, Gulf, Jackson, Liberty,
Walton, Gadsden and Washington
counties are encouraged to
attend.

tique of what you need to be suc-
cessful," Langston said. "Whether
you are an athlete or not."

first few weeks," Warriner said.
This final go-round will also
reflect those first years of the tour-
nament, Buzzett said, with an
emphasis on the social side and
thanking those who, have been stal-
warts of the tournament, founda-
tion and college.
Buzzett said tournament offi-
cials are combing through old pro-
grams to produce a slide show of
memories to be displayed at the
country club and Tapper mansion
throughout the weekend.
"There a lot of good memories,"
Buzzett said. "This is the last (tour-
nament) and it's going to be fun.
We are going to take it out the way
Mr. Tapper brought it in.
"It will be a fun time. We'll go
out with a smile."
And then' another chapter in,
this area's rich history will'be swept
into the dustbin of memory and
history.
Maybe, ,as Warriner said, the
tournament has run its course. It
was, however, a wildly productive
memory-filled run for those
involved.
And, like a certain mill, they
aren't likely to see its likes any time
soon.
"It will be something that is
.going' to be sorely missetl."
McSpadden said.

So You Can Relax and Enjoy The Outdoors!
* No annoying sounds from zappers that zap insects flying into them
* No applying deet, lotions, sprays or other chemicals to your body
* No spraying chemical foggers on the yard that your family uses for enjoyment
* No stringing electrical cords throughout your yard
The MOSQUITO DELETO System has two products, the Inhibitor
and the Trap. Although they can be used separately, they are most effec-
tive when they are used together as a system. Use the Inhibitor to push
mosquitoes away from you. Use the Trap to attract and kill mosquitoes'
THE INHIBITOR is a small, portable tabletop unit with a w whisper
quiet fan that emits and circulates a patented scent. This scent in hibits
mosquitoes' ability to detect humans. Simply turn it on about 15-
20 minutes before going outdoors to gently disperse the scent that
keeps mosquitoes away from you and your family.
THE MOSQUITO DELETO TRAP silently lures mosquitoes
by emitting carbon dioxide, heat, and a special mosquito attractant r
called Octenol. Once they are lured to the trap, mosquitoes
become caught on the adhesive cartridge where they die. The trap
is designed for continuous "around-the-clock" use.

It has some 30 stops where
divers and snorkelers can learn
about the ship's history, surround-
ing marine life and other pertinent
and interesting information.
The preserves are intended to
preserve history while attracting
visitors from around the world -
Smith noted that many Europeans
are particularly interested in such
sites and support local maritime
businesses, such as charter boat
captains.
To date, all eight of the exist-
ing Florida underwater preserves
have been added to the National
Registry of Historical Places.
Interested residents from Gulf

PSJ to Preserve

Heritage
Dear Editor,
I recently 'had the good fortune
of returning to Port St. Joe to
attend the wedding of a fainily
friend and was delighted to see sev-
eral instances of restoration to
many older homes and businesses.
The newly restored Port Inn is a
perfect example of how the past of

Port St. Joe can be preserved as
well as providing the community
with new economic security. The
Warriners should be commended
for their dedication to preserving
and also enhancing the architec-
tural integrity of the building. It is
truly a shining star in the commu-
nity and I am sure it helps make
civic pride even stronger.
It is very sad that so many of
Port St. Joe's architectural
reminders of the past have been
lost. It is refreshing to see that the
tide is now changing and people
are beginning to preserve that

Planning A Summer At the Baseball & Softball Park


by Royce S. Rolstad, III
Don't put away the gloves and
baseball caps just yet. The regular
season may be over, but there are
still a few games left for fans of
Dixie Youth'baseball- and softball.
Many teams went away
champs this season in both base-
ball and softball.
In Dixie Youth baseball the
Arizona Chemical team took the tbp
spot in the 7-8 age division;,St. Joe
Natural Gas in the 9-10 age divi-
sion; and Linda's Restaurant in the
11-12 division.
It was a fantastic year, accord-
ing to Eddie Martin, secretary-
treasurer of Port St. Joe Dixie'
Baseball..
There was one downside,
Martin added.


"Not having enough kids par-
ticipate," he said.
Despite the sluggish turn-out
in roster numbers some teams
have been very successful come
state tournament time. Last year
the major league team (12-and-
under) came in second at state.
And even though Port St. Joe
has never sent a team to the World
Series, they strive to make it there
every year.
Martin adds that bigger cities
have a better success rate when it
comes to choosing players for a
tournament.
"They are able to pick from
maybe 1,000," stated Martin,
"when we only have-45 to choose
from."
Here is the upcoming game


schedule for Dixie Youth baseball:
*On June 14 Linda's
Restaurant team will play in Bayou
George.
*The 7-8 year old division will
play in Hiland Park on June 21.
*On July 5, the 9-10 All-Star
District Tournament will be held in
Franklin County.
*On July 12, the 11-12 division
will take to the field in Callaway for
the All-Star District Tournament.
The 9-10 age division state
tournament is slated to be held 'in


Pensacola while those who play for
the 11-12 age division will play in
Avon Park.
"Have fun and play ball," said
Martin to the teams heading off to
the tournaments. "It's just a game."
Softball
For you softball fans, the fast
pitches start flying on Saturday,
June 21, with the first game being
held at the 10th Street girls fields
in Port St. Joe beginning at 3 p.m.
ET.
Port St. Joe Dixie Softball will


host the event with teams coming
from all over the district to partici-
pate Blountstown, Grand Ridge,
Bristol, Sneads, and Wewahitchka.
The weekday games will' begin
on Monday, June 23 at 7 p.m. ET.
and will run through June 27.
The division includes the
Angels (10-and-under), Ponytails
(12-and-under), Belles (15-and-
under), and Debs (18-and-under).
This year there was only one Debs
team and it automatically advances
to the state tournament.


Returning this year in the
Angels division is two-time defend-
ing district champions Port St. Joe.
Also returning is the two-time divi-
sion champions and 2002 state
champions, Wewahitchka.
Winners in the Angels and
Belles divisions'will advance to the
state tournament July 11-16. The
games, in the Ponytails and Debs
state tournaments are July 18-25.
All games are to be played in
Okeechobee.


Letter -from Page 11A


which helps to remind us from
whence we came. I extend my com-
pliments to those who have
restored older homes for business-
es and residential sites.
For many years, I have felt the
need for Port St. Joe to have a des-
ignated residential historic district.
The areaabetween Sixth Street and
Tenth -Street with Long Avenue
being the eastern boundary and
Monument Avenue being the west-
ern boundary, in my opinion,
would be an ideal start. This area
has many historic .homes and
buildings that are beautiful
reminders of the past. The
Anderson-Smith home,' the B.W.
Eell's home, the Robert Tapper
House, the first St. James
Episcopal and St. Joseph Catholic
churches are all prime examples of
the wealth of historic places which
fill this area.
My challenge is to' the St.


Joseph Bay Historical Society, the
City Commission of Port St. Joe,
the Chamber of Commerce and cit-
izens both past and present, to
help preserve the rich heritage of
our beloved community by desig-
nating one small area as a historic
district. A historic district would
provide residents \\nth a beautiful
area in which to live and work, yet
also preserve a portion of the rich
history of the community. Historic
districts not only provide glimpses
to the past for current generations
but also create revenue by provid-
ing tourists with one more thing to
do and see. Historic districts are
seen by some as zoning night-
mares, but in my humble opinion, I
believe the 'good certainly would
outweigh any complications. The
possibilities of how a historic dis-
trict could work to the good of the
community are endless.

favorite scripture is, "For I know
the plans I have for you," declares
the Lord, "plans to prosper you and
not to harm you, plans to give you
hope and a future." Jeremiah

He is currently involved in a
Sunday afternoon .Bible study with
his team which has drawn the team
closer together and allowed him to
grow closer to Christ.
"Wayne is a tremendous leader,

letes. His Sunday afternoon Bible
study is growing in leaps and
bounds and through it many lives
have been eternally changed," said
Jay Jolicoeur.
Summers said, "I was blessed
to have a' family who raised me in
church. I was taught at a very early
age who Jesus Christ was and what
He wanted from my life. I had a
very firm understanding of Biblical
truth early in life, but didn't actual-
ly accept Christ as my personal

before my sophomore year: of high
school.

Dr. Oksanen


announces



expanded


local services

Dr. Oksanen, Barbara, and the office staff are pleased to announce a significant
improvement in available services for their patients.
After much soul-searching on how to provide both better inpatient as well as out-
patient diagnostic tests in this area, Dr. Oksanen applied for, and was granted, reserve
inpatient staff privileges at both Bay Medical Center and Gulf Coast Medical Center.
His office is now part of a on-call arrangement with four other physicians, who provide
24-hour a day, seven day a week, 52 week a year inpatient care, at both of these larger
and very well-equipped Panama City hospitals. The other four physicians are also all
Board Certified. They are Internal Medicine specialists. Each has practiced in this area
for years. They are very well thought of.
What this means for patients here in St. Joe is that ia a hospitalization isneeded, that
hospitalization will now be done in a modern, up-to-date and well-equipped facility
with full ancillary services and choice of sub-specialist backup. Dr. Oksanen feels that
this is a tremendous improvement over what he had previously been able to offer.
In addition to these changes, the office now also utilizes the Bay Medical Center
facilities at Beacon Hill -- as well as all other outpatient diagnostic facilities in Panama
City for outpatient diagnostic testing. This ensures access all of the time to modern,
state-of-the-art machines with technicians who are always licensed in their field. This
also ensures that Bay Radiology Associates will be providing the lion share of X-ray
diagnostic services -- a truly excellent radiology group. Lab work continues to be drawn
at the office for both practice patients and patients referred in from other physicians.
The office continues to expand into the new electronic age. Patient information now
is routinely kept on computer, allowing quick access all of the time, almost instanta-
neous letters to consultants, and flow sheets designed primarily to ensure that nothing
is lost or overlooked --a problem with basic paper charts.
Emergencies are now being handled a little bit differently. The answering service
machine at the office has expanded capability -- and offers the patient the choice of mes-
saging or a direct line to the doctor, if the local beeper system fails for any reason. If
time is of the essence, however, Dr. Oksanen recommends that his patients go directly
to one of the two emergency rooms in Panama City. Staff at both of those emergency
rooms are aware of the practices, physician affiliations now --so even if a practice patient
arrives in a Panama City emergency room unannounced, they will be covered in-house.
by the physician group Dr. Oksanen cross covers with -- and he will be aware of the
situation.
There are many new changes slated for this area in the near future. These practice
improvements are positioning Dr. Oksanen's practice to be part of every new facility
and service that is either coming now to the county or is being considered in the near
future.
Recently there has been some confusion about a sign we have up at the office. This
sign advertises a piece of land that we own. Some local individuals have thought that
the office was for sale. That is far from the truth. We are eagerly looking forward to par-
ticipating in all of the health-care improvements that this county should see over the
next year or so. Those improvements have been long-awaited. We are growing with
you, adding new services as they become available -- to keep the medicine provided here
as comprehensive and up-to-date as possible.

at the Port St. Joe Marina for the
2nd annual "Kids Win Fishing
Tournament."
"The weather put a damper
more on the adults than the kids,"
said Jan Brant, facilitator of the
tournament.
This year, 125 kids signed up
for a day of fishing and fun, just
36 short of last year's turnout of
161.
"We didn't expect that many
because of the weather," said Ima
Jean White, a member of the tour-
nament committee.

Everyyoung fisher who signed
up for the tournament received a,
bag full of goodies from various
companies. A Shakespeare rod-
and-reel, a one- year membership,
patch, decal and quarterly
newsletter from IGFA, as well as
gifts from Coca-Cola.
The top winners not only went
away wjth-a bag full of fishing
goodies this year, they were
awarded a trophy and tackle box
as well.

David Cooper, III traveled all
the way from Norcross, Ga., with
his grandfather for a day of fish-
ing.
Brant said Cooper brought in
a string of fish, including one that
wasn't on their species list of fish.
"He was so proud he could
have walked on a cloud," Brant
said with a laugh. Cooper was
awarded a tackle box for all of his
hard work.
"It didn't matter what they
caught," Brant continued, "kids
wanted to take them home, and
parents wanted to dispose of what
they caught when they got back to
the marina."
And though it rained most of
the day, everything still went on as

Your dentist may recommend using a space maintainer metal

Occasionally, a primary tooth fails to loosen and fall out

Answers to Real Estate questions i
from your local Century 21 Agents.
IN HASSLE-FREE HOMEBUYING I .
By: Preston Russ
Perhaps you'd like to take advantage of today's great buyer's market in housing but feel
a little intimidated by everything that's involved.
You know the routine: finding the right locale and the right house; negotiating an agree-
ment; putting together a down payment; and selecting the best mortgage available.
There are two things you can do to make every step run smoothly. The first is to select a
really professional agent who knows the real estate business, knows your local market, has both
a solid reputation for integrity-and a solid record of success, and clearly is eager to respond to
your needs.
The second is to make you agent your teammate in the literal sense of the word, using
teamwork to be sure that the house you ultimately buy is the house you've always.wanted.
Making your agent your teammate requires choosing an agent you feel able to trust both
as a person and as a professional. And that's no small matter. In real estate as in all areas of
business as in all aspects of life, actually trust can make all the difference in the world.
True teamwork is nearly impossible to achieve unless you stick with one agent throughout
the buying process. Buy all means you should shop around and shop around carefully when
you're still deciding which agent to work with. Once you've made that decision, however, don't
reverse it unless (and this rarely happens to people who are careful in the first place) something
specific happens to make it clear that your choice was unwise.
Teammate status is all the motivation a first-rate agent needs to go all-out in finding hous-
es that suit your needs.-And if you're concerned about what it is you're looking for and how
much house you think you can afford, your agent can save you huge amounts to time and
effort.
If you're not sure how much you can afford, be candid with your agent about that, too.
He or she can provide you with some helpful preliminary guidelines and can put you in touch
with mortgage lenders who know how to get you focused on an appropriate price range.
It's always a good idea, as you look at listed homes, to give your agent a lot of feedback
on what you've seen. Good feedback will refine and sharpen the agent's understanding of your
likes and dislikes, which in turn will make it easier to find the house of your dreams.
The ultimate payoff, once again, is that you get to your goal more quickly, expending less
time and less effort along the way.
Anyone who has ever done it this way will assure you of one thing: it pays off.

61 extraordinary years of marriage..
Benny and Ann Roberts,:members(
of, the First 'United Methodist
Church, joined in ahd were recog-
nized for their 47 years together.
Others did not go unnoticed.
Couples were praised for their com-
mitment and honoring their prom-
ise to each other "for better, for
worse, for richer, for poorer, in sick-
ness and in health, to love and to
cherish." Dr. Bill Taylor, pastor of
Faith Bible Church, spoke on such
a commitment. "Over 11 million
people in America have chosen to
live together instead of get married.
Marriage has lost its luster. It has
become hard for young men and
women to find a couple to emulate
because the commitment to mar-
riage, especially in America, has
become a thing of the past." By

contrast, Dr. Taylor added, "We are
blessed to have so many in our
church who have honored God
with the marriage commitment
today."
A number of those present had
enjoyed many years of marriage
before the death of their spouse.
"Many in our church are widowed
and had celebrated three to six
decades, or more of married life
before the death of that loved one,"
said Dr. Taylor. "I .cn't help but
believe that the Word of God has
played a role in the success of so
many marriages in a church our
size. Christians committed to hon-
oring Christ by reading and study-
ing His Word and loving each
other; that's impressive!"
Though using a number of
Bible passages, Dr. Taylor focused
on Colossians chapter 3.
"Husbandg and wives (even as all
Christians) should have a 'heart of
compassion:..bearing with one-
another, and forgiving eachother.'
They should also 'put on love' and
'let the peace of Christ rule in your
hearts' and 'let the Word of God
* richly dwell within you.'"
The reception was held in the
Faith Christian School library fol-
lowing the evening service. A two-
tiered cake was provided-by Amelia
Davis. Other church members
brought light refreshments. Mary
Ellen Allyn, Crystal Ayers, Beth
Taylor, and Janis Ramos decorated
and helped serve. The Godfreys
and the Quarles brought beautiful
flowers consisting of roses and a
mixed arrangement. These were
placed in'the church and at the
reception.
Three couples were honored in
absentia. Jimmy and Linda Cox
have been married for 41 years.
Celebrating,49 years are Jim and
Barbara Fowler of Connecticut.
winter friends of the church, and
Bob and Amy Kilgallin who moved
back to central Florida last month.

2002 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Lighthouse Utilities Co., Inc.
P. O. Box # 428
Port St. Joe, FL 32457

This report will be mailed to customers only upon request and is also available at 2010 County Road C-30 Port St Joe,
FL upon request.

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about
the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and depend-
able supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treat-
ment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water
source is Ground water from 2 wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer.

Our water is aerated to remove minerals and gases then chlorinated for disinfection purposes.
We are pleased to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact James R. Simmons @
850.227.7427. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility.
Lighthouse Utilities Co., Inc. routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and
State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our moni-
toring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2002.
As authorized and approved by EPA, the State has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less
often than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from
year to year. Some of our data, though representative, is nore than one year old.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms ard abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've
provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are
set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which-there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that
a water system must follow.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) onepart by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the
water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the
water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

TEST RESULTS TABLE
** Results in the Level Detected column for radiological contaminants, inorganic contaminants, synthetic organic contaminants including pesticides
and herbicides, and volatile organic contaminants are the highest average at any of the sampling points or the highest detected level at any sampling
point, depending on the sampling frequency.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs,
springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occur-
ring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of ani-
mals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic
systems, agricultural live stock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban storm
water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm water
runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of
industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storm water runoff,
and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and min
ing activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain
contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations estab-
lish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some con-
taminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More infor-
mation about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection
Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-com-
promised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ trans-
plants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk
from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC
guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contam-
inants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at Lighthouse Utilities Co., Inc. would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water
treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you
have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

Spotlight on Health


Nutrition


by Dr. Peter Obesso
Last week we learned about
the advantages of breastfeeding.
We also learned that solid food
begins to be introduced into our
diet at about six months of age. At
that time a lifetime of nutritional
choices begin.
The right choices will lead to a
healthy and active life. We have all
been taught about the food guide
pyramid. It provides us with
guidelines to portions and moder-
ation of the different food groups.
These groups, for the sake of
simplicity, can be divided into
three: carbohydrates for energy;
protein for tissue building and
conservation; fat for storage and
use during times of deprivation.
Two studies comparing the
Atkins diet to the low fat diet came
out this year. Surprisingly for

2002 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Mexico Beach Water System


We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about
the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and depend-
able supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treat-
ment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source
is ground water drawn from a series offour wells. The wells draw from the Floridan and the Sand & Gravel Aquifers.
The City's treatment process includes aeration of the water, the injection of chlorine for oxidation at the clarifier and
injection of anionic polymer for coagulation and filtration purposes for iron removal. Chlorine is then introduced again
for disinfectant purposes and Aquamag( is added for iron sequestration.

We are pleased to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Frank Hall at (850)-648-
3002. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more about our
utilities, please contact the Public Works Department at (850) 648-5700.
The City of Mexico Beach routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State
laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring
for the period of January 1st to December 31st 2002.
As authorized and approved by EPA, the State has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less
often than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from
year to year. Some of our data, for example [unregulated contaminants, or lead and copper contaminants], though
representative, is more than one year old.

In the table below you willfind terms and abbreviations you might not be familiar with. To help you better understand
these terms we've provided the following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. .MCLs are
set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
,known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.

Non-detect or "ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.

Non applicable (N/A). Does not apply.

Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements
which a water system must follow.

Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part per million corresponds to one minute in two years or a
single penny in $10,000.00.

Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/I) one part per billion corresponds to one minute in 2,000 years or a
single penny in $10,000,000.00.

Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

Water Quality Test Results
As you can see by the following table, our system had no violations. We're proud that your drinking water meets or
exceeds all Federal and State requirements.


2002 TEST RESULTS TABLE

** Results in the Level Detected column for radiological contaminants, inorganic contaminants, synthetic organic contaminants including pesticides and herbicides, and volatile organic
contaminants are the highest average at any of the sampling points or the highest detected level at any sampling point, depending on the sampling frequency.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs,
springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occur-
ring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of ani-
mals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic sys-
tems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwa-
ter runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff,
and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of indus-
trial processes' and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic
systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain con-
taminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled
water which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some con-
taminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More infor-
mation about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection
Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immunq-compro-
niised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants,
people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from
infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines
on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are
available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at City of Mexico Beach work to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask that all our customers help us pro-
tect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our children's future.
