Scallop


Scoop


Sounds


Succulent
by Tim Croft
One of the summer's most
anticipated reruns around these
parts is certainly the July 1 return
of scallop season.
And this year will look a whole
lot like the last.
Surveys taken in the past cou-
ple of weeks by researchers with
the Florida Marine Research ,
Institute in St. Petersburg indicate
that this year's population of the
.delectable little animals found
where the sea grass grows in .St.
Joseph Bay has remained largely
stable since last summer.
While the average numbers are
slightly below those of 2002, in sci-
entific speak the percentage decline
is but a mere blip, hardly worthy of
heartburn.
And they reflect a population
that continues to, boomerang from
a recent string of several disastrous
seasons.
"It will be much like last year,"
said Dr. Bill Arnold, a research sci-
entist with the Florida Marine
Research Insitute. "It will not be a
banner year,! but it will be a pro-
ductive one.",
* Recreational harvest season for
.scallops runs from July 1 through
September 10.
Last year, researchers found an
average of 37.5 scallops at the 20
stations they survey in the bay
each June.
This year, the number is 28.6.
"From a statistical point of
view, there is really no difference,"
Arnold said, adding that if the
number had jumped to 100 or fall-
en to 3 per station, that would be
noteworthy.
"(The numbers from 2002 and
this year) indicate that the popula-
tion is stable this year," Arnold con-
tinued. "I am not disappointed.
"What we see in St. Joseph Bay
is what you would expect from a
healthy bay scallop population."
When they survey each year,
researchers return to the 20 sta-
tions for which they have recorded
coordinates, starting on the north
end near the city limits of Port St.
Joe swinging south along the coast
and returning north almost to
Eagle Harbor.
At each station, they set a 300-
meter transect line. Swimmers
start at each end and move to the
middle, counting every scallop seen
within one meter of the transect
line.
That's 600 square meters per
station, 12,000 square meters of,
the entire bay surveyed.
i "It's a pretty substantial area
that we are covering in St. Joseph
Bay," Arnold said.

Port Theatre Officially

I Gains Listing On National Register of Historic Places


Sby Tim Croft
The months of painstaking work, of research, let-
ters and the seemingly endless waiting came bubbling
up and through the phone line.
"Yee haa," said Wade Clark upon learning that the
Port Theater, which he and his wife, Paula, have owned
for more seven years, had been officially listed on the
National Register of Historic Places.
Official notification from the state had not arrived,
but Bob Jones of the Florida Division of Historic
Preservation said last Friday that he had received the
word, via e-mail, that the theater in Gulf County was
one of three Florida landmarks added to the National
Register as of June 6.
Which, Jones added, ras precisely where the the-
ater belongs.
'Total joy, total pleasure, total ecstasy," was how
Paula Clark characterized her reaction to the phone
call alerting her that the final hurdle in the Clarks'
quest to have the theater listed on the National
Register, had been cleared.
"It was something we felt we needed to do for the
building," she continued.
Wade Clark added, "It's a great old building."
Built in the 1930s, the Port Theater served as the
entertainment capital of the area for several decades.
A host of acts, from vaudeville to Roy Rogers,
graced the' old beauty's stage. Each weekend the the-
ater, which sat more than 1,000 at one time, attracted
.hordes to early cinema, newsreels and cartoons.
Shirley Temple, Gone with the Wind, World War II-
era films, the history fairly oozes from the, huge walls
enclosing the theater.
'We'll never find a building with the same ambi-
ence and character," Paula Clark said.
Wade Clark added that hardly a week goes by
without somebody walking through the theater, down
its sloping floors, below the stalwart fire-proof projec-
tion room, to reminisce about old times, about those
who got in trouble, the tales that were told, the com-
munity that was joined in the cavernous brick-and-
mortar fortress.
The memories span miles and decades.
Ruth Coe Chambers, an author currently living in
Neptune Beach, lived in Port St. Joe from 1937-1953.
The fictional town Bay Harbor in her novel The
Chinaberry Album was modeled after Port St. Joe.
She wrote a letter in support of the Port Theater's
inclusion in the National Register, detailing some of
the memories of another era.
"I have more wonderful memories of time spent
there than I can recount," Chambers wrote. "On that
hallowed stage we saw minstrel shows, beauty con-
tests, magic shows and anything else important


enough to grace that revered space."
The velvet curtains, Chambers indicated, were fit
for royalty and may have been the only velvet curtains
in town.
The glass enclosed ticket booth, cramped and
uncomfortable, was like a glass doach for Cinderella.
She recounted the separate ticket lines and seat-
ing for black and white, about how kids tried, to fool
the ticket ladies about their age when they were over
12 and could no longer enter for a dime.
"Clutching our tickets and hoping the Baptist
preacher wasn't around, we walked up a sloping aisle
past the candy counter on the left and spangled movie
posters to our right," Chambers wrote. "As far as I
know, the picture show was the only place in town
where you could get popcorn. Popcorn has never been
so good since.
"I can still see myself, clutching a candy Par and
sack of popcorn, walking into the magic of that dark-
ened place, lit only by Popsicle-colored lights that
looked good enough to'eat."

"/ have more wonder-

ful memories of time

spent there than I can

recount." -

Ruth Coe Chambers

Chambers recounted the movies and the stars of
her youth, of learning about evil and the likes of Hitler,
Hirohito and Mussolini, about coming of age in the
darkened seats below that silver screen.
"I became a teenager in that magic land and found
romance not only on the screen but in the middle row
of seats," Chambers wrote. "By then I learned not to
grip the seat in a tense moment of the movie, the
underside of which would be pockmarked with gener-
ations of discarded gum."
Chambers also recalled a bit of history.. She
remembered the day she saw the burning embers from
the cross of the Ku Klux Klan, burned in protest of a
movie called Pinkey.

Memories

The George G. Tapper Invitational Golf Tournament has been
around for a long time. I knew a lot of sunrises and sunsets had
been seen since that first tournament, but didn't realize how
many until I looked at the photo on the front cover of last week's
edition of The Star.
A lot of old memories were stirred as I saw those smiles on the
faces of Tom Coldewey, Charles Whitehead, Dr. Joe Hendrix, J.V.
Bubba Gander, Dr. Bob King, David Carl Gaskin, B. Roy Gibson
and George G. Tapper posing for their photo as members of the
1976 tournament committee.
This group of men coupled with the help of many other vol-
unteers has raised many thousands of dollars for Gulf Coast
Community College over the past thirty plus years. While I know
things change and time has altered the effectiveness of these type
tournaments as fund-raisers, it's hard to imagine October with-
out the Tapper Tournament and annual get together.
Most everyone who was here back in the beginning remem-
bers that George Tapper donated the property for St. Joseph Bay
County Club to be built on, Furthermore George and his good
friend C.W. Roberts were the major forces behind building the
course.
This is the same CW. Roberts that helped.form C.W. Roberts
Construction Company which today still does much of the paving
in the area and is now operated by his two sons, Chuck and
George. Dr. Bob King told me Monday that C.W. told him after
building the golf course that if he had played golf before building
the course he probably would have done it a lot differently.
I took that to mean easier...
Didn't mean to roam off the subject, but there's a lot of his-
tory bundled up in that photo. Fact is one of my fondest memo-
ries of George Tapper was the day I tried to negotiate/horse trade
for a house I couldn't afford to buy about 25 years ago.
_I had a-master plan to get a reduction of what was a very fair
price so that I`inight be able to get a loan and afford to do some
of the reimodeliig work which needed to be done. George had a
better idea. He suggested I just move into the house free of charge
for several months and apply what I would have been paying in
payments toward my renovation project and as soon as I finished
he would finance the full price of the house at 9.00% interest.
SIt did take several months for wife Shirleyand I to finish the
projects, in the meantime (some of you remember this) interest
rates had shot up to somewhere near 15%. I won't ever forget sit-
ting across from George in his office and hearing him say-"Now
didn't we say 9.00% interest on this loan for period of twenty
years."
SI would be lying if I told you I thought the loan rate would
remain the same after interest rates had skyrocketed. I guess I
learned George didn't have a variable word to match some of the
variable interest rates that were being dished out back in the
early seventies.
There I go 'again finding it hard to stay on the subject. I
promise you I could go on all day talking about the special group
of men that appeared in that old photo. This community has
always been blessed by having more than its share of people who
excel at helping and serving their friends and neighbors.
I hope this year's Tapper Tourney is the biggest and best yet.
I understand these type events have run their course as far as
being significant fund raisers, but I know that David and Trish
Warriner (Trish is George's daughter) have and will continue what
has been a long-standing family tradition of service.
You never can tell, I might even break out my clubs....
Naaaahhh!!!! I better not do that. They would have to call the
Roberts brothers out on special assignment to repair the course
when I finished.


I had a lot on my mind. I was
mulling life, love, family and eter-
nity around in my head as I turned
off McCullough Boulevard onto
Country Club Road. I had no idea
where I was going. I wasn't even
paying that much attention.
I was just running.
A lot of folks ask me why I run,
It's "good exercise" is my usual
response. Or I tell them I'm doing
it "so I can eat anything I want to!"
And sometimes, if I'm in a really
squirrelly mood, I'll jokingly say,
"You mean your wife doesn't make
you run? Do you think I want to be
out here? Cathy is afraid if some-
thing happens to me, the money
will stop rolling in...."
The truth is I run mostly for
my soul. You won't believe how the
cares of this world somehow melt
with the miles as you amble down


the road. It's a golden period of
silence where 'ou cian ponder.
recall. pray or dream.
I was lost. deep in Ihought. as
I made a left turn onto Clayton
Avenue. I was in Tupelo. Mississip-
pi, and most every street looked
the same to me. I was just search-
ing out the most level pathways as
I plodded along. It wasn't my first
run in Tupelo. My little brother
lives there. 'Ard, as on other occa-
sions when I visited, I usually
found time for a run.
It was early. The sul had been
up just long enough to make its
presence felt. My thoughts were on
my brother this beautiful Sunday
morning as I passed' a 1956 Buick
Special resting peacefully in a dri-
veway. It had the three "port holes"
on either side of the front fenders.
It sported the curved back trunk
and the two-tone color scheme so
prevalent on the cars of that peri-
od. David Mark and I would have
had a high ole time wheeling
around back home -in that
machine! Listen, they knew some-
thing about making auttomobiles


in the 50'sl
I remembered the '56 Chevy
Dave was so proud of. It was his
first car. He'd take that thing apart
in the back \ard just to see how\
e\ervthing worked! \Ved cruise
around Frank's Dairy Bar hke \\e
were kings of the world! It never
seemed odd to me that the younger,
brother had his own car before the
older one did. I was so proud for
himl Shoot, I was never the car
man he was....
I'll. tell you this, one human
being, can't love another any more
'than I love my little brother.
I ran past a house with horses
painted on the mailbox. I thought
of that old worn out chair with the
big arms in our cozy living room at
1162 N. Stonewall, Long before our
car days we used to swing up on
those big, genuine Naugahyde
wings and ride the range for hours
on end! I reckon we locked up
more bad men- than Roy Rogers
and Gene Autry put together We
used to race those "chair horses"
like crazy....and I could never oilt
run him....


He used to pull Indians off my
back. \hen my "horse" went down
he'd grab me by the arm. lift me up
behind him and. riding double.
we'd outrun the buffalo stampede.
He's knocked me out of the way
and "took" a thousand bullets
meant for me....
You might think us sdly or
maybe even crazy. But our hours
of fun melted'into days. And the
days into weeks and the weeks
into years. And I wouldn't trade
one second of them for all the
money in the world. I am so thank-
ful to God that we didn't have tele-
vision or Nintendo or computers to
get in our way! It was so much
more fun because we got to make
up our own pictures.....
'We very seldom discussed life
and growing up and the future and
reality and all of that old people
stuff. I guess we figured that would
come soon enough. And we'd han-
dle it just like.we did those Hunt-
ingdon boys when they came over
to take our girlfriends away!
I was miles away in thought as

Off with the old and on with the new. Ameritech Enterprises of Panama City Beach is stripping away the old roof of the A.N. Railroad
Company building and replacing it with a new one. Clay Smallwood, president of the St. Joe Timberland Company, said he hopes the job is
completed by July 4.


It was the Funniest Game ofKeep-Aay You Ever Saw...


I MADE OUT LIKE a bandit
Father's Day. I received three din-
ners, a pair of bedroom slippers, a
year's supply of fresh-grown sweet
corn ears and a shirt.
The three dinners were eaten
in a restaurant and one of my
daughters' home.
The pair of bedroom slippers
were especially welcomed by "Little
Bit" as she needed something new
to chew on-as if she didn't have
enough already- but I suspect a
five-month old puppy never has
too many items to chew on.
The corn was "home-grown"
on daughter. Catherine's horse
farm and she sliucked, de-silked
and blanched the ears for the
freezer. So I can have corn-on-the-
cob just any time I want it this
year; and I pretty much want corn
on the cob anytime!
I got a new shirt which fit me
the first try.
I also received a gift certificate
to be spent at the Dockside Cafe,


which should prove to be especial-
ly useful.
Like I say; I made out like a
bandit, I didn't get a single necktie!

I HAD AN ENVELOPE filled
with columns written by my prolif-
ic pen pal, Bob Steinmetz, this
morning when I came in to set this
column..
He asked for my phone num-
ber-227-1776-and directions to
,my house-just ask anybody in
town-as he and blue-eyes were
planning a trip back to where they
originated, in Kansas, and he
hoped to stop by and let his little
toy poodle-about the same age as
"Little Bit"-get acquainted and
possibly get a few pointers on what
to use as a bathroom and learn a
few wrinkles in driving his master
crazier, faster!
I've got to tell you this one: The
other day, after my weekly trip to
the. hospital for a "treatment", we
stopped to eat dinner. Frenichie


couldn't eat all her fried chicken,
so she wrapped a piece in a napkin
and put it in her purse,
When she arrived back home;
she laid her purse down and forgot
it.
"Little Bit" smelled the piece of
chicken and immediately went
rummaging through the purse to
"liberate" the piece of chicken.
She was carrying the piece of
chicken triumphantly around the
house, until Frenchie saw her and
set out to take the piece of chicken
from her.
What developed was the funni-
est game of "keep away" you ever
saw. The dog ran between her legs,
under a table, through the house,
under chairs and couches ...
She was determined to keep
that piece of chicken strictly for
personal uses. She wasn't going to
share!

Port St. Joe Planning Pathway Through the City


Port St. Joe city commissioners
are in the process of planning path-
ways throughout the city. The
board held a public hearing prior to
its regular meeting Tuesday
evening to look at plans prepared
by the city engineers, Preble-Rish
Inc.
Philip Jones outlined the pro-
posed pathway for the board. The
plan is part of a Florida
Department of Transportation
grant the board is trying to finalize.
Jones reviewed a series of ren-
ditions showing the pathway begin-
ning at Highway 71 where Forest
Park meets the highway near
Woodward Avenue. The path
extends from there through Forest
Park all the way to Twenty-second
Street, cuts up by Port St. Joe
Elementary School and across
Long Avenue to the Centennial
Building.
The board suggested several
minor changes to the proposed
route as they tweaked the plan. If
all goes as planned, the city will
have a walking and bike pathway
running through much of the resi-
dential area.
STAC HOUSE NAME
The board moved forward with
a recommendation made by
Commissioner John Reeves to
name the.STAC House after Louise
Parker. Commissioner Benny
Roberts told fellow commissioners
that they should get a really nice
bronze plaque and "do it right."
The commissioners had agreed
to wait for a period of time so the
recommendation by Reeves could
be researched to ensure that no
previous restrictions had been
placed on the naming of the struc-
ture.
Commissioners agreed with
Roberts' suggestion and will move
forward with Reeves' motion to
rename the building while main-
taining the STAC (Student Teacher
Activity Center) House portion of
the current name.
IN.OTHER BUSINESS
Gave a variance to New
Bethel Church following advertis-
ing of the variance request.
Agreed to a request by Bay
County's BASIC Aids Services &
Information Coalition, Inc. to con-
duct a program to educate teens of
Sthe nsk of HiV/AIDS. The meeting
' will be held at the gyrn/recreation-
al center on Saturday, June 21
from 7 p.m. to midnight.
Commissioners discussed the


Kesley
(From Page 2)
I ran past 1212 Clayton
Avenue. One glance. at that big
backyard and I halted right in my
tracks! Now, you never stop once
the run begins. It messes up your
time, and it is extra tough to get
your old legs started again. But I
stood frozen as I perused the field
before me.
It was a near 'bout perfect lay-
out! There were,'some tall oaks on
either side that.would provide plen-
ty. of shade. It was not perfectly
level so the weaker team could take
the high side. It had a magnolia
tree in the center so we would have
to make some ground rules. And it
had a power line pole just about in
the middle.....night games!
Listen, this place was born to
be a ball field! We had played on a
hundred like it growing up. It had a
couple of bare spots. We could use
them for bases if it was baseball.
When we switched to football we
could use the spots as markers. As
in "go down to the bare place and
do a button hook, I'll get it to you."
David wasn't, the biggest or the
fastest....but he was the toughest
by far. I could picture him now run-
ning through Leon's attempted stiff
arm (the one I was afraid of) and
whacking his bigger brother just
below the kneecaps. Leon was six
years older and seventy pounds
heavier. Dave would wrap his arms
around both legs as Leon kicked to
pull loose. Dave would hold on even
tighter and yell, "jump on K. C., I've
got him!" We'd double team Leon to
the ground. I'm telling you David
Mark didn't back up and he never
quit! You wouldn't believe his
grit....
We've got to get all the old play-
ers together and try this place out!
What a game we would havel I had
to fight down the urge to knock on
the door at 7:00 am and ask, "when
would be the best time for us to
come over."


Instead I eased out into the
road and took off. As I turned back
into the wind and got up to speed I
silently whispered to Dave, "Hey, at
least there is nothing wrong with
our memories....or our aspira-
tions....."

In last week's edition of The

that Sally Malone had given coun-

members copies of Florida State
laws which she credited \wth cre-

Commissioners agreed to advertise for approval of the variances.

Mallard Cablevision Files For


Chapter 11 Reorganization


by Royce S. Rolstad, III
Mallard Cablevision which
provides the residents of Port St.
Joe with cable television filed
Chapter 11 bankruptcy on May 9
in the United States Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Delaware.
Richard Ebersole, a represen-
tative for Mallard Cablevision said
they are not going out of business
despite some concern.
Cathy Costin, owner of J.C.
Enterprises v.'hich received local
cable payments monthly, said she
found out on June 7 that Mallard
had filed for bankruptcy when she


received a copy of the bankruptcy
notice in the mail.
Ebersole said that by filing
Chapter 11 Mallard will have the
ability to re-group if needed.
"(Chapter 11) will have no
effect on the ability of the company
to move forward," Ebersole said.
Costin, who has not received
,her service tee from Mwallard for the
months of April and May is no
,.longer accepting payments from
residents.
According to Ebersole, Mallard
is forbidden, by law from paying

Ebersole said he hopes they
can resolve the issue, but if not,
said they will find another party to
accept the payments from the res-
idents locally without them having
to mail it in.
Ebersole said there have been
some "Expressions of interest"
from potential buyers, but at this
time, he is unable to comment on
those negotiations.
Stuart Shoaf who runs the
local cable access said, "It never
entered my mind that it (cable)
would cease." And even though
Sthe local cable has not been dis-
connected, Shoaf feels that even if
Mallard stopped their service,
someone would take over and con-
tinue to provide the residents of
Pot St. Joe \%rth cable access. ,
Currently. Mallard is the only
cable company providing service in'"

Sixth Annual Langston Program


On Tap for Next Thursday, June 26


by Tim Croft
David Latgston can recall those
who pushed lim as a youth.
Who demanded that he broaden
his horizons, who nudged him to
work hard, to dedicate, to focus on
always stretching the envelope.
Those who instilled in him the
understanding that success is spun
from the threads of effort and
desire.
Langston remembers those
folks who helped fashion his early
path as he extends a hand back to
the next generation.
One result is found in the Norris
D. Langston Youth Foundation,
named in honor of David Langston's
brother.
The foundation will hold its
sixth annual program next
Thursday, June 26.
The program will begin at 6:30
p.m. EDT at Port St. Joe High
School.
"It's not really a celebration at
all," Langston said of the program. "I
feel obligated to reach back and help
young.people understand what they
need to be successful.
'There is no child who should
not be prepared to be a successful
person."
One could argue that the cen-
tral thrust of the annual program,
and the foundation's efforts, is
about scholarships to help propel
students to higher education.
Next week, some 40 scholar-
ships will be handed out, bringing
the number to somewhere above
100 since the program's inception.
The aim, however, is higher, and
maybe that is reflected in some
measure in the keynote speakers
the program has attracted.
Two years ago, it was then-Lt.
Gov. Frank Brogan. Last year, it was
Rep. Allan Bense, R-Panama City,
who is in line to become Speaker of.
the Florida House of
Representatives in two years.
This year, Education
Commissioner Jim Home will pro-
vide the main address, with Laura
Branker, deputy chief of staff for
Gov. Jeb Bush, presenting the
scholarships.
"Having an avenue where you
lan bring the top administrator ,
Education here ... it's irnportantfTor
Ui!


parents and students," Langston
said. "We need to take the opportu-
nities to expose ourselves to some of
the things we don't understand."
And through these movers and
shakers from Tallahassee, possibly,
a broader theme of what it takes to
reach high, to grab the proverbial
ring and hold on, reverberates.
"Educating young people to
understand that in America they
have an opportunity to be success-
ful," Langston explained. "If they are
dedicated to work hard and concen-
trate on what they need to do, they
can be successful in this country.
"Information is the key."
Information that can be provid-
ed by a rising state representative, a
man one step .from the governor's
office or the leader of education in
the state.
Information brings production
and productive citizens translate
into less violence, less crime.
The foundation and its program
aims to guide youngsters toward
that more productive, more golden,
road.
"We want to walk them through
the process," Langston said.
"This is for the benefit of all. We
need to rid ourselves of the concept,
of 'I.' We need to all dig in, pitch in
and help. Productivity is the bottom
line. If you aren't producing you are
on the sidelines."
The Langston Youth Foundation
program expands this year to
include an "Educational Basketball
Workshop" from 10 a.m. until 1
p.m. on Wednesday, June 25 in
'The .Dome" at Port St. Joe High
School
S'The workshop, which will be led:
by several major college and junior
college mens and women basket-
ball coaches is open to youngsters
sixth-grade and up.
As with the main program the
next night, however, the workshop
is about much more than guiding
kids through the nuances of hoops.
"It's not solely about basket-
ball," Langston noted. "We are
showing that there is another side
to competing, the academic side,"
In part, that is accomplished by
extending basketball- concepts
beyond the hardcourt
Court a''arrenis s,


"It will get you through life,"
Langston said. "It's an awareness of
where you are in life."
Preparation.
"People don't want to pay the
price, that's the tough part,"
Langston added.
What it all boils down to is try-
ing to find the switch. For some, the
light comes on early, for others it
beams later and for some it doesn't
ever come on.
Langston hopes that 'through.
his foundation, through exposure to
men and women who have enjoyed'


success and can impart the lessons
of success and the hard work that
carried that success along, the
switch is flicked.
"We need to try to turn 'the
lights on at an early age," Langston
said. "And we need the support of
the entire community to do that."
For more information on the
annual Langston program or the
basketball workshop, which are
both free and opefn to the public,,
call Langston at 899-0855 or Coach
Kenny Parker at 899-5037.

thriving. Movie Gallery was the first to open its doors (below).


Port City Shopping Center Fills


Commercial Spaces With Businesses


by Royce S. Rolstad, III
Though most of the businesses
in the Port City Shopping Center
just recently opened their doors,
business is already thriving.
George Duren, owner of the
Piggly Wiggly said. when the deci-
sion was made to build the Piggly
Wiggly, it was already in the plans
to build additional commercial.
space in the shopping center.
The first to open its doors was
Movie Gallery, which Duren felt
would be the driving force in getting
the other spaces filled. Now, four
other shops have opened their
doors for business in the last few
months.
Business is steadily picking up
for Raymond Driesbach who
opened up a laundromat and dry
cleaning pick-up spot in the center
on June 11.
Driesbach said the center is a
good location with a lot of traffic
and it will allow him to provide a
service to more people.
Michael R. Harris, general
manager of Pristine Properties said
they have only been in operation for
a few months and are already


"Starting to get a lot of business."
Harris said he feels the Port
City Shopping Center is an ideal
place to have a business because
you will attract the attention of
people passing from both the east


and west through Port St. Joe.
Melissa Ramsey who Jopened
her store, St. Joe Kids, just last
Thursday said she decided to open
up a shop in the shopping center
because it is a place where locals


can find nice gifts for kids without
having to go a great distance.
Jennifer Brown, an employee
at St. Joe Kids said people were
waiting outside the shop at 9:00
a.m. last Friday morning-only the
second day of being in business.
Brown said she expects,
"Business is going to explode."
Ramsey added that she has

We are a non-profit organization. That means
we can charge less for our loans than commer-
cial banks. We return that money to our mem-
bers in the form of lower interest rates on
home equity, auto, boat and personal loans!


The same thing applies to funds deposited with
us. We can pay higher interest rates on savings
accounts, Certificates of Deposit and other
investments because "profits" are returned to
our members in benefits like higher rates on
savings.


Do you like Free Services? We offer some serv-

hopes of expanding the store into a
women's clothing and shoe store in
the future.
Bluewater Outriggers opened
its doors on May 12 and had its
ribbon-cutting ceremony last
Friday.
Leslie Ray, manager of
Bluewater Outriggers said there
was a need for an additional
marine and tackle store and added
that the public has been very
responsive to the opening of the
shop.
"We have gotten a lot of busi-
ness from the Marina," Ray said.
She said the only problem the
store has run into is keeping the
shelves stocked.
Ray said that she sells
between 100-200 pieces of tackle
each week and the numbers con-
tinue to climb.
The one company that has
leased a spot inothe center, but has
not opened its doors, yet, is H&R
Block.
Duren said they are set to
open sometime in August.
The consensus from most of
the tenants of the Port City
Shopping Center is that. Duren
made a fine decision when he
decided to add the commercial
space into the shopping center.
Sandra B. Chafin, executive-
.director of the Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce said she
feels the stores currently in opera-
tion will do good business.
"We have come a long way
since the Piggly Wiggly (was com-
pleted)," Chafin said.
Business is thriving through-
out the whole shopping center and
Harris said, "We are right in the
center where all the activity is
going to be."

Theatre
'This was the only evidence I
ever saw of the Klan in Port St. Joe
and I can't help but think their
action must have boosted ticket
sales a bit," Chambers wrote.
Listing of the National Register
of Historic Places had been seen as
merely a rubber stamp for the Port
Theatre after a a state historic
panel recommended it in March.
The proposal to list the theater
concentrated on two key areas.
One was the building's archi-
tecture.
Jones emphasized the unique-


from page 1


ness of the engineering elements of
steel and brick that "made possible
the massive open space, provided
good acoustics and permitted the
building to withstand two hurri-
canes."
The other area of emphasis was
entertainment, the slew of movies,
plays, community events and
shows that theater offered.
Listing on the National Register
provides for some protection of the
building's integrity, particularly if
projects in the area are developed
that involve federal funding, per-


emitting, licensing or assistance.
Property owners are also eligi-
ble for certain tax credits for reha-
bilitation of the building.
"It would be a benefit to us if
we were going to sink a great deal
of money into the building," Paula
Clark. "It will be more of a benefit
for the next owner."
The Clarks, who require more
space to accommodate their grow-
ing auction business, have the the-
ater on the market, though no seri-
ous buyer has emerged as of yet.


Old film reels are hung inside the building as a new reminded


Fast Track


be the impact of, for example, a sig-
nificant number of students choos-
ing to take the English and
Government/Economics courses
they need in the fall, graduating in
December.
The key student count of the
year, on which funding for the fol-
lowing school year depends, is in
February.
Those early graduates would
have a profound effect on that st'u-
dent count, and in turn fundiig,for'
the future. .
This, in a district that has
already sustained the body blows of
declining enrollment in the past
several years.
An'd, are those students taking
less than a full-time course load eli-
gible for athletics?
Under Florida High School
Activities Association guidelines, it
would appear the answer is no,
meaning athletic teams, across the
board, could be impacted in small
districts.
What about junior and senior
proms? Or the verydefirutuons, and


distinctions, of what is a junior and
a senior?
Finally, district officials worry
about the impact on students,;
those they are-charged with giving
a leg up as they enter college or the-
workplace.
State universities have already
warned that students choosing
fast-track graduation could be
looked on as, according to a report
in the Orlando Sentinel, "second-
class graduates" to admissions offi-
cers already operating in a highly
competitive environment.
While students on a fast-track
to graduation must still pass the
same core courses, they will have
fewer credentials, university offi-
cials have emphasized.
Consider that the University of
Florida, where the competition is
most acute among state universi-
ties, just 1/1,000 students were
admitted last year from an appli-
cant pool of 24.000.
Remediation, already a signifi-
cant issue at junior colleges and
state universities figures only to


er of days gone by.

worsen.
The real concern, though; is
that kids who choose early gradua- .
tion are those who can least afford
to leave school early.
Many will be tossed into a job
market so tight, it has sent many
adult workers back to college to
complete degree requirements.'
The disparity, in income and
job prospects, between high school
,dropouts or graduates and those
who have some college or a college:
degree, has never been more dra-
matic, according to' a host of
recently published reports.
"There are a certain number of
students that this is setting them
up for further failure," said Billy
Quinn Jr., chairman of the Gulf
County School Board.
In all, the changes in high
school graduation requirements
will mean a long, hot summer for
administrators in the district.
"The handwriting is on the
wall," Kelley said. "This is bad leg-
islation but we have to implement
it. We can not wait."


The Clarks have fashioned the inside of the the theatre to retain much of the theatre seating and stage look.

Finishing Touches Being Applied


to City's 90th Birthday Bash


by Tim Croft
City and business leaders are
dotting the i's 'and crossing the t's
on the city's seven-day birthday
shindig.
The festivities ramp up June
27 and run through the annual
Fourth of July celebration.
Monetary support from the
city, the Constitution City Business
Association, the county Tourist
Development Council, and a slew of
businesses, organizations and indi-
viduals has provided heft to the
weeklong festival.
"Financial support has really
come in," said deputy city clerk
Carol Davis.
Lining up to help steer the
activities were a veritable Who's
Who of participating local busi-
nesses and organizations.
Arvida/St. Joe, the Gulf
County Public Library, the newly
formed Gulf Alliance for Local Arts,
4 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.


There'll still be patriotic main-
stays such as the Blessing of the
Fleet, flag folding ceremony and
performances of patriotic music.


The preparation is down to the
"nitty gritty details," Davis said.
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.

Gulf District In Line with



School/Rooms Class Sizes


by Tim Croft
The Florida Department of
Education released district class
size statistic- this week. lie num-
bers demonstrating, that Gulf
District Schools re, for now, in
pretty good shape.
The district class size averages
are in line with state mandates -
which emerged from a voter
approved amendment to the Florida
Constitution that spurred this


year's legislation at the middle
school and high school levels.
In the elementary schools, the
district av%-raie is ,nrly slightly
above the state requirement of 18
students per class. The district is at
19.8 students per class.
With minor tweaking, 'district
officials believe they will align
themselves with the state dictates
for this year.


It's A Boy!

Kids Win

Refunding

Entry Fees
On June 7 many junior anglers
set out for a day, of fishing at the
2nd annual Kids Win Tournament,
but were unable to, due to the
severe weather which consumed
the whole day.
The Port St. Joe Marina has
decided to refund every entrant
$15.00 of the $25.00 entry fee.
The $15.00 that is being
returned would 'have gone toward a
membership to the IGFA Junior
Anglers, but if the entrants wish,
they may still join the IGFA Junior
Anglers for the 2003/2004 year.
This year, kids went away with,
a rod-and-reel, lures, t-shirt, din-
ner tickets, and a bag full of gifts
and prizes.

School Grades Show Positive Results


by Tim Croft
District school grades were
released Wednesday morning,
affirming some outstanding marks
around the county and, as with
most things involving the Florida
Department of Education these
days, raising several questions.
The county will not be an honor
roll district this year as it was in
2002, but neither did the district
have any schools residing in the
basement of the scale the state uses
to grade schools.
"We don't have any D or F


schools and that's a real plus," said
Sara Joe Wooten, the district's
supervisor of curriculum. "We antic-
ipated some higher grades and we
are looking at challenging some
things. We've just got some things
we need to get with the DOE about."
And, Wooten noted, the district
still averages out to a B district.
On the positive side, Port St.
Joe Middle School continued as an
A school, a distinction it has, at
least by the barometer of test
scores, largely maintained since the


state began grading schools several
years back.
Port St. Joe Elementary, as
expected, bumped its grade up from
a B to an A.
"We are super proud of the mid-
dle school for maintaining their A
and of the elementary school for ris-
ing to an A school," Wooten said.
She added that pride is also in
store' for Wewahitchka Elementary,
which stayed steady as a B school.
The flip side, however,'is that
Wewahitchka Middle School


Chase Ends in Mishap i
A strip of spikes across the
road on Jones Homestead were
enough to stop a Tampa man
after a high-speed chase on
Tuesdiay'that began in Franklin
County. Armando. Trujillo, 42,
was arrested after Gulf County
Sheriff's investigators put a stop
to his run from authorities by .
flattening the tires on his vehicle. .
According to the Franklin County
Sheriff's Department, Trujillo "
made verbal threats to several..
residents in Apalachicola. When .
confronted he sped off in his car
down U.S. 98 toward Gulf ....-
County where he was ultimately
apprehended. Trujillo was in the
Franklin County Jail charged
with felony fleeing and eluding, ,_ f _
felony criminal mischief, reckless
driving, disorderly conduct and
having an unassigned tag.


St. Vincent Wildlife Refuge to


Celebrate 35th Annivers


by Royce S. Rolstad, III
St. Vincent National Wildlife
Refuge in Apalachicola will be cele-
brating its 35th anniversary as a
wildlife refuge on Wednesday, July
9 which will coincide with the
100th anniversary of the National
Wildlife Refuge System. '
Beginning at 8:00 a.m. ET, the
refuge barge will be transporting
visitors to and from the island at
the Gulf County boat ramp /at
County Road C-30 B. The barge
will also be taking visitors at 10:00
a.m. and noon with the last barge
returning to the mainland at 3:00
p.m. ET.
Booths will be set up at the


cabin area of the island with infor-
mation and educational displays.
On hand will be. staff members
from St. Vincent National Wildlife
Refuge, Apalachicola. Estuarine
Research Reserve, St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge, and the
Apalachicola Bay and River
Keepers.
According to Terry Peacock,
manager of St. Vincent National
Wildlife Refuge, the booths will pro-
vide information on the local estu-
arine system, local history of the
island, information on local Native
Americans, and much more.
And though visitors will not be
given the normal tour that St.


ary July 9th

Vincent provides at other "times
during the year, visitors to the
island will be transported to and
from the cabin area by two different
toads which will allow them to see
portions of the island they will not
see during their day on the island
walking the beaches and trails.
There is no fee for the tour, but
the: refuge recommends that visi-
tors bring with them water and
insect repellent.
"I hope the visitors will take
with them an appreciation for the
national wildlife system," Peacock
said.

Terry Peacock at 1-850-653-8808.


Red Snapper-A Delight from Deep Sea


Red snapper (Lutjanus
campechanus), found off Florida's
Gulf and Atlantic Coasts, is one of
the best known and desired deep-
sea delicacies. Snappers are caught
in waters 60 to 200 feet deep using
large electrical .and'manually pow-
ered reels with multiple-hook rigs.
The red snapper industry began in
1870 in Pensacola, Florida, by an
enterprising New'Englander.
Adult red snappers are easily
distinguished from other red-col-
ored snappers; they are deeper
bodied, not as streamlined and
have a bright red iris. The back and
upper sides vary from pink to red
and the lower sides and belly are
lighter in color.
Snappers prefer irregular hard
bottom formations of rock and
limestone covered with' coral and
sponges. They feed on a variety of
bottom dwelling crustaceans and
small fishes. The growth of this
species is slow; however, it can
weigh as much as 30 pounds 'and
grow to 3 feet. They reach sexual
maturity after age two and spawn
between June and October.
The moist, white flesh of the
red snapper has a delicate sweet
flavor. It is sold fresh or frozen and
can be served broiled, baked,
steamed, poached, fried or grilled.
Store fresh snapper in the
refrigerator at 32-38 degrees F and
use within two days or freeze at 0
degrees F and use within six
months. Thaw in the refrigerator or
under cold running water.

School had district officials scratch-
ing their heads.
The school, at least if. scores'
from the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Tests are a true meas-
uring stick, appeared to earn the
school at least a B when FCAT
scores were released last month.
And, again, according to the
grading scale on the DOE website,
Port St. Joe High appeared to earn a
B, though points is just one piece of
the formula.
"It's a very complicated formula
they use," Wooten said, adding that
once the district can glean more
information from the DOE, officials,
can determine whether a challenge
is in order.
That, in turn, could ,prove a
challenge unto itself. The DOE has
recently undergone a reorganization
and phone numbers and depart-.
ment contacts have changed and
folks have left the department.
As a result, information has


been difficult to come by.
The district still does not have
full budgetary information weeks
after the Legislature approved the
state budget.
Receiving detailed interpreta-
tion about the intent and content of
the class-size legislation reported on
elsewhere in this paper has proved
elusive, both for district, officials
and members of the media.
Nonetheless, Wooten said there
is much to be proud of in the dis-
trict's school grades, as well as
goals to strive for.
"We're really proud of our
teachers and students," Wooten
said. "Everybody worked super
hard, I'm happy.
"I wish all the schools could be
A's but that didn't happen. It gives
us something to shoot for."
We'll take a closer look at the
grading scale and the factors that
played a part in school grades next
week,


received an N, indicating that it is a
new school and not being graded.
However, the middle school
received a grade' last year, which
leaves district officials at a loss
about the lack of a grade this year.
'That has to be a fluke," Wooten
said.
In fact, according to the grading
scale on the DOE's website,
Wewahitchka Middle appeared to
earn enough points to earn an A,
though, Wooten.noted, that point
scale is just one piece of the grading
formula.
Both county high schools
received C grades, down from B's
the year before.
At Wewahitchka High, that
grade was generally anticipated due
to a slippage in writing scores, but
the grade at Port St. Joe High

ScallopS-from page 1
The number of scallops seen
per station last week, for those
interested in the minutia were:
zero, one, five, eight, two, zero,
four, 30, 201, 67, 14, 54, 26, five,
two, five, three, 10, 42 and 95.
The more populated stations,
Arnold noted, tended to be at the
southern end of the bay, where sea
grass beds are more plentiful and
healthy.
"That's pretty standard,"
Arnold said. "The distribution pat-
tern is roughly similar to previous
years."
The dissimilarity this year to
last is found in those first several
stations, where scallops were
found in slightly more plentiful
numbers in 2002.
Scientists from the Marine
Research Institute fan out across
Florida each early summer to sur-
vey scallop populations in more
than a'half-dozen locations, from
Pensacola to Homosassa..
Those surveys provide statis-
tics researchers use' to compare
sites around the state, as well as
production from year to year.
Researchers, Arnold said, have
come to pay particular attention to
St. Joseph Bay, smack in the mid-
dle of what many believe will soon
be the next major growth area in
,the state.
Growth in coastal areas, in
turn, can carry with it considerable
degradation to sea grass beds.
"Any negative impacts on sea
grass beds is negative for the bay.
scallop population," Arnold said.
He added that he was riot
"overly concerned" about a propos-
al to dredge the channel deeper,
but the breadth of the growth pro-
jected for the area around the bay
is cause for pause.
"St. Joseph Bay is a jewel, an
absolute jewel of Florida," Arnold
said. "It needs to be protected."
The scallop population also
needs that protection, and Arnold
offered some suggestions.
"Mind your limits," was a good
place to start, Arnold said.
Limits are in place for a rea-
son, he said, and the biggest cul-
prits each year are those who defy
the limits by going out early,
returning and storing their harvest
and then returning to the bay.
Besides, Arnold noted, stock-
ing the freezer with scallops some-
what defeats,the purpose of har-
vesting.
"The real value of going to St.
Joseph Bay to scallop is to eat
them fresh and get that sweet scal-
lop taste," Arnold said, adding that
if folks want frozen scallops head to
the grocery store. "It's a fragile del-
icacy and .it should be considered
as such."
Additionally, Arnold suggests
that cleaning the sea grass of all
scallops before the close of the sea-
son might not be the smartest
thing to do.
Fall is spawning time for scal-
lops, so the season ends, in large
part, before the cycle of life begins
anew. The more healthy full-bodied
scallops left in the ,bay, the
stronger the link to the next gener-
ation.
'That's why I stress leaving
some behind when the recreational
harvest season ends," Arnold said.


FLUORIDE:
A NATURAL SAFEGUARD
.f Until the 1930's, no one knew why
I:. some communities always had lower tooth
,decay rates than others. Today, we know
the reason: the drinking water in 'those
communities contained the correct amount
of fluoride. Fluoride, from the element flu-
"' orine, is a trace nutrient, that is, a nutrient
f -the body needs for optimum growth and
j L b', health. Fluorine is present to some degree
in soil, plants, foods, and water. To reduce -
dental decay, one part fluoride per million parts water should be
present in the water supply.
All water contains some fluoride naturally, in greater or lesser
amounts. Fluoridation is the process of adjusting the fluoride to
the most advantageous level in water supplies that are fluoride
deficient. Since the 1940's, hundreds of scientific studies have
proved that fluoride at this optimal level produces no harmful
effects. If people drink fluoridated water from birth, they will have
up to 65% fewer cavities and 90%,fewer childhood tooth extrac-
tions.

continue in Scouts, they will have
to travel to Wewahitchka or Parker.
Next year, there will be eight more
Webelos who will have no place to
continue scouting. There is a need
for a Tiger Cub leader for 6 year
olds and a Bear Cub leader for 9
year olds. Leaders could meet at
night, on Saturdays, or share the
leadership. A beautiful meeting
place is already provided. Starting
June 24th, the Webelos will meet
Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. unless pre-'
ferred otherwise.

assisted the United States' joint
partners in establishing formidable
crew drills to ensure the airmen
serving at Ahmed Al Jaber Airbase
would survive a Weapons of Mass
Destruction (WMD) attack. His
joint training plan and cooperative
spirit with the 332nd Air


Expeditionary Wing lifted the entire
air base's confidence and tactical
sharpness, resulting in no injuries
or. loss of life during combat opera-
tions. Command Sergeant Major


Weatherspoon's endurance, focus,
and complete grasp of staff func-
tions provided junior staff NCO's
the oversight and confidence they
needed to support the warfighting
batteries.
The exemplary leadership, per-
sonal commitment, and devotion to
duty displayed by Command


Sergeant Major Weatherspoon in
this immensely responsible posi-
tion reflect great credit upon him-
self and the United States Army.
Weatherspoon graduated from
SPort St. Joe High School in 1977.
He is the son of Voncile Nickson of
Port St. Joe, and is currently sta-
tioned at Ft. Bliss, Texas.

Command Sergeant Major
Sidney D. Weatherspoon has
received the Bronze Star Medal for
his exceptionally, meritorious
achievement while serving as the
Command Sergeant Major for Task
Force Iron Fist, 2-1 ADA, (Patriot),
11th ADA Brigade, 32nd Army Air
and Missile Defense Command
(AAMDC), during Operation Iraqi
Freedom. Command Sergeant
Major Weatherspoon was responsi-.
ble for the leading, training, and
caring of over 1,100 soldiers whose
mission was-to provide Tactical
Ballistic Missile (TBM1I) defense fbor
critical assets spanning a 1,300
square kilometer area of operation
(AO). His thorough knowledge of
the Kuwaiti AO, coupled with his
previous combat: experience,
ensured task force soldiers were
trained, battle focused, and pre-
pared to defend Commander U.S.
Central Command (COMCENT),
_Combined Forces Land Component
Commander (CFLCC) and
Combined Forces Air Component
Commander (CFACC) critical'
assets from Iraqi TBMs..
Spreading his expertise across
a seven firing battery Patriot Task
Force, Command Sergeant Major
Weatherspoon planned and
resource dedicated security for '
nine separate Patriot locations
which protected six critical COM-'
CENT/CFLCC /CFACC critical


assets, four U.S. V Corps
Commander assets and four 1st
Marine Expeditionary Force
Commander assets.
During the period 20 March -
30 April, 2003, CSM Weatherspoon
traveled over 10,000 kilometers
visiting soldiers, assessing their
morale and ensuring they
remained battle focused and razor
sharp. His assessments, were
absolutely essential in helping the
Task Force Commander maintain
an accurate pulse on soldier
morale, motivation, and readiness.
His insight and combat experience
transferred to the task force non-
commissioned officer corps and
greatly contributed to the destruc-
tion of six inbound Al Samoud and
Ababil 100 ballistic missiles using
a combination of Patriot Guidance
Enhanced Missiles (GEM) and the

tion by professors, 'coaches, coun-
selors, and other qualified sponsors

Spotlight on Health


High Blood Pressure,


the "Silent" Killer


By Peter Obesso
Hypertension is the single most
common condition for which people
go to the doctor in Gulf County.
Because the disease is almost
always silent until organ damage
has occurred, it is important to be
aware of how common it is and
what, if anything, we can do to pre-
vent it from developing. Once we
have been diagnosed with hyper-
tension, the previously, preventive
lifestyle changes become mandato-
ry. The reason is that high blood-
pressure plays a stellar role in the
development of heart disease,
strokes and kidney failure.
The following are lifestyle
behaviors that help prevent hyper-
tension.
1) Weight control. .Maintaining
the weight expected for your height,
age and gender reduces the possi-
bility of developing high blood pres-
sure by 50 percent. Remember the
good, the bad, and the excellent
C carbohydrate list from last week.
2) Increased physical activity.
Daily aerobic exercise like walking
or biking to the store or post office
dampens the sympathetic nervous
activity that many believe is the
underlying cause of primary hyper-
tension.
3) Relief of stress through
relaxation methods, such as medi-
tation, yoga, reading, hobbies or
physical exercise. Medical investi-
gators have found that hyperten-

sive persons are three times more
likely to be employed in high stress
jobs than normotensive persons.
4) There is evidence that too
much sodium and too little potassi-
um and calcium intake may also
play a role in hypertension. Low
intake of potassium reflects a
decreased consumption of meats,
fresh fruits and vegetables.
5) Moderation of alcohol con-
sumption and cessation of smoking
also play a role in the prevention of
sympathetic nervous system acti-
vation.
Once the doctor has made a
diagnosis of high blood pressure, it
is of utmost importance to follow
his or her instructions. Take the
medication as prescribed and mod-
ify your lifestyle. It could mean the
difference between good and bad
health.

So You Can Relax and Enjoy The Outdoors!
* No annoying sounds from zappers that zap insects flying into them
* Np applying deet, lotions, sprays or other chemicals to your body -9
* 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 etffet-
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 \ith a whisper ,
quiet fan tiat emits and circulates a patented scent. This scent inhibits
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 luresn mosqui toes
by emitting carbon dioxide, heat, and a special mosquito attractant
called Octenol. Once they are lured to the trap, mosquitoes I
become caught on the adhesive cartridge where they die. The trap 1
is designed for continuous "around-the-clock" use.

Piggly Wiggly Employees on the Move


by Royce S. Rolstad, III
Though it may be hard to
describe his trip in less than a
thousand words, Darius Chambers
could spend all day telling you
about his experiences in the coun-
try of Scotland.


"amazing" with its beautiful ceiling
painted with angels.
Another sight he took in was
that of Queen Mary College.
Chambers had only one thing to
say about the college, "Those build-
ings were built to last."


took in the sights and sounds of
the gambling capital of the world.
They visited Caesar's Palace to
see the watershow, made a trip to
the Hoover Dam and Grand
Canyon, but the highlight of their
trip was a stop by Madame
Tussaud's wax museum.
"You were waiting for them to
speak to you," Williams said.
At the museum they saw the
likes of Lucille Ball, Princess


The fun doesn't stop there. Ten
Piggly Wiggly employees were treat-
ed to a day on the Lady J with all
the trimmings of a great fishing
trip-the food, bait and tackle, and
the fish were even cleaned for them
so they wouldn't have to do it when
they returned.
A month of fun for the employ-
ees of Duren's Piggly Wiggly.

You're in good hands.


Darius Chambers, receiving
manager at Duren's Piggly Wiggly
and his wife, Antionette,, were
treated to the week-long trip by
George and Hilda Duren.
George Duren, owner 'f the
Piggly Wiggly said that his store
has a co-op with Alabama
Distributing Company and said
usually he can send two people on
a trip with a store his size each
year. This year's trip was offered to
Chambers and his wife.
Duren said Chambers is at
work at 5:00 a.m. every morning
and is a great employee.
Chambers recounts his trip as
if he were still taking in the sights
and sounds of the beautiful towns
of St. Andrews and Edinburgh.
On his trip he toured the
Scottish countryside, several cas-
tles, and even a dungeon which
Chambers described as, "Real
creepy."
He described some of the beau-
tiful places he 'isited, one was a
cathedral which he simply called,


Only high praises are spoken of
Darius Chambers.
S"He does a lot of hard work
here," said Janet McCroan, a fellow
employee at the Piggly Wiggly. "He
deserved it."
Chambers is glad to be home
but said, "I'm ready for another
trip." Back to Scotland? No. He's
ready to give up the kilt for a hula-
skirt on the beautiful island of
.Hawaii.
Two other. Piggly Wiggly
employees also took a trip, but this
one was to Las Vegas.
Jacque Williams, price scan
coordinator at the Piggly Wiggly
and Janet McCroan attended a
non-food marketing expo in Las
Vegas where they bought supplies
for Durni's Piggly Wiggly.
Williams said it was her first
plane trip in 40 years.
\And though the two were there
on business, they were able to take
in a few sights.
: Both Wiilliafis and McCroan
stayed at The Venetian hotel and


Jacque Williams, left, and Janet McCroan were treated to a Las Vegas trip.


Diana, Whoopi Goldberg, and Larry
King. someone McCroan always
thought as being tall, but said
when she saw him, she fourid out
he was "...a little short man."
Williams' highlight was being
able to see one of her favorite lead-
ing men of all time, John Wayne.
Williams said seeing him was
"great."
"At times I thought it vas (real)
actors standing there," Williams
said.
Both Williams and McCroan
agreed that even though the city,
has been tagged, "Sin City," it is a
very clean place, and everyone is
really nice.
"It was an honor to be chosen
...and we appreciate the Duren's
for allowing us to go," said
Williams.
t As ,to whether the .two., are,
ready for another tnp. the smile On
their faces gave them away.


For the deal of your life, see me!

Good-Bye Dear Friends in Port St. Joe


When I first drove into Port St.
Joe, March 7, 1984, I had no idea
that this town and the wonderful
people that call it home would
become.my extended family. It is
said that people are bound togeth-
er by shared experiences and in
reflection I am forever bound to
you. Over the past 19 years of min-
istry in Port St. Joe you have
patiently loved me as I grew up in
the Lord. You have also received us
as faithful ministers of Christ and
have supported us in every way.
I'm not only speaking to members
of Oak Grove Assembly, but to all
of you who are grafted into our
memories and our hearts.
I especia y want to thank
Bunnie Gainnre for giving a 19-
year-old college student a summer
job. If she hadn't, I would have
been packing it back to Texas.


There were many odd jobs that we
held, especially early in our min-
istry, to make ends meet. Thank
you Rocky for letting me make
those midnight pick-ups, J.T. Wood
for the experience of pouring con-
crete, Shorty Sowell for the electri-
cian job, and all those that let me
rake pine straw for an extra dollar
or two. And of course, thanks to
Mary Lou Cumbie (Sewell) for call-
ing me in to substitute all those
days (especially for Becky Lacour
as she increased the population of
PSJ!).
We have too many close friends
to start calling out names, and I
certainly don't want to miss any-
one. However, I do want to say that
the ministerial association and our
fellow workers in the ministry have
been a tremendous source of
encouragement and support. I only


A new law enforcement officer
has joined the ranks of the Florida
Fish- and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) Northwest
Region. Hal Webb is 27 years old
and assigned to Gulf County.
Webb, who is from Bay
County, graduated from Mosley
High School in 1994. He received
an Associate in Arts degree from
S Gulf Coast Community College
and a Bachelor's degree from
Florida State University.
Webb graduated from the
FWC's law enforcement academy
in Tallahassee April 18 along with
36 other classmates. He graduated
number two in his class and fur-
ther distinguished himself by
receiving the class Defensive
Tactics Award. His brother Matt
has been an FWC officer since
1998.
Officers completed 26 weeks of
training and received badges and
diplomas. The first 19 weeks
focused on the State of Florida
basic recruit curriculum.
The last seven weeks stressed
the uniuiie requirements of con-
servation law enforcement, includ-
ing fish and wildlife conservation
law; vessel accident investigation;
Water safety survival; man-track-
ing; commercial fishing; wildlife
crimes investigation; alligator han-
dling; vessel operation and off-
road driving.
FWC officers may still focus
their work in a particular area for
routine patrols, but when the need
arises for -concentrated law
enforcement at any location, the
FWC has the flexibility to deploy
officers to any freshwater, saltwa-
ter or land operation.
"FWC law enforcement is the

hope that the community we are
going to will have a fraction of the
love and cooperation that the
Church of Port St. Joe enjoys.
As we drive away from Port St.
Joe on June 30th we're leaving
more than a job, a house, and
town. We feel that we're leaving a
haven of love created by family and
friends who have faithfully stood
with us in the good times and the
rough times. The Lord knew where
to place me so I could become who
He wanted me to be. 'Port St. Joe
has been my training ground for
all the Lord has in order to over-
come.
I want to say to Myrna
Fernandez, my mother-in-law,
thank you for sharing your pas-
sionate love for Jesus Christ with a
Bible college student on spring


Letter of Thanks

from PSJ Soldier

Stationed in Kuwait
My unit, the 3d Transportation
Agency Movement Control (3d
TAMC) ofAnniston, Ala., is respon-
sible for coordinating all move-
ments into and out of the theater
of operations. The 3d TAMC is a
combination of active duty and
reserve soldiers, and is currently
deployed in support of Operation
Enduring Freedom/Iraqi Freedom.
Over the course of several
weeks this spring, I received in the
mail seven boxes of 'Treats for
Troops" from the Port St. Joe High
School National Honor Society. I
also received two boxes from Mrs.
Brenda Wood's elementary school
class. I shared the contents of the
boxes with the soldiers in my unit
here in Kuwait, and sent some
items to our forward elements in
Iraq,
Needless to say, a box of good-
ies didn't last long With all the sol-
diers gathered around, opening
those boxes made it seem almost
like Christmas!
On behalf of my fellow sol-
diers, I thank every person who
contributed to the "care packages"
that brought a few minutes' pleas-
.ure to an otherwise stressful and
unpleasant time. It is a greatfeel-
ing for soldiers to know they have
the support of family and friends
back home.
-Tammy S. Rushing, Lt. Col.,
U.S. Army. PSJHS Class of '76

break. If I could identify one thing
that drew me to PSJ it was a
hunger to know Him like you knew
Him. Your devotion to Christ will
always inspire me to pursue that
same relationship, letting every-
thing else pale in comparison.
Thank you for loving Him so much.
Finally, I would like to thank
Dave Fernandez, for his support as
a father-in-law as well as a fellow
minister. I have learned many
valuable lessons by serving along-
side a man who is true to his call
as a pastor.
Till we meet again, may you
each experience the love of God
and the intimate relationship He
desires to have with you through
His Son, Jesus Christ.
