Scallop


Season


Start


July
by Tim Croft
It's that time.
Tuesday will be the proverbial
gun for the start of the annual scal-
lop season, which will run through
Sept. 10.
And researchers indicate that
the scallop population in St.
Joseph Bay continues to bounce
back from, several turbulent years,
predicting this year's harvest to be
similar to last year's.
"Last year was a better year
than we'd had in a number of
years," said Lt. Stan Kirkland with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
As vacationers and locals don
masks and snorkels to search the
sea grass beds for the sweet succu-
lent little critters, there are certain
rules and regulations everyone
should be mindful of.
Bag limits. Individual limits
are two gallons of whole
(unshucked) scallops or one pint of
meat. That's per person per day.
The maximum limit for a boat
with multiple scalloperss s 0 gal-
lons of whole scallops or one-half
gallon of meat.
And while that's the maximum,
folks should remember their arith-
metic. Three people on a boat
means they can not have more than
two gallons of whole scallops
apiece, or six gallons.
Ten gallons is the maximum for
an entire vessel.
Diver down flag. Kirkland said
what trips up more people during
scallop season is failing to put up a
diver down flag.
"Anytime you are in the water
you are required to have a diver
down flag," he said. "It is a cardinal
sin to go out without a flag. Officers
will enforce that."
The flag must be visible in all
directions, 360 degrees.
All marine, stores have the
required flags.,
Fishing license. You must, if
you are over 16 years of age, have a
fishing license to scallop. It's the
law.
For Florida residents aged 16-
64, the cost is $13.50.

Graduation Forums Set



Town Hall Meetings Will Focus On New Graduatidn Requirements


by Tim Croft
The letters are in the mail, the
meetings are set.
In an effort to educate parents
and students on changes to high
school graduation requirements
recently approved by the Florida
Legislature, district school officials
are, taking a two-pronged
.approach.
A letter from the desk of
Superintendent Jerry Kelley that
has been sent to high'school stu-
dents and their parents sketches
the broad strokes of the changes
approved as part of lawmakers
attempt to meet class-size reduc-
tions mandated by voters.
And a series of town meetings
will be held next week to mull
options and impacts.
Students will have one of three
tracks to choose from in deciding,
their path to the graduation stage.
One is a 24-credit, or tradition-
al track, the other two are 18-cred-
it tracks.
Requirements for foreign lan-
guages and the number of electives
for graduation vary depending oh
the option a student chooses.
The student must make the
choice.
During a recent workshop, dis-
trict officials expressed grave con-
cerns about the proposal, concerns
that have been raised by school
leaders around the state.
The impact on Gulf District
Schools will be immediately felt in
the likely end to block, or 4x4,
scheduling at Port St. Joe High
School, which adopted such sched-
uling several years ago in an effort
to provide a broader curriculum
and enhance student options
beyond high school.


However, school officials in the
county and around the state, some
believing the proposal an attack
against public education, are wary
of future impacts on everything
from academic offerings to staffing
to athletics.
State university officials have
decried the concept as creating
"second-class" graduates in the
highly competitive arena of college
admissions.
Kelley's letter to parents and
students reflected the concern of
many school officials.
'The decision is a serious one
and should be based on the goals
the student has for his or her life
after graduation," the letter from
Kelley reads in part. "Choosing a
three-year, *18-credit option means
that high school will be shortened
by one year and the opportunity to
be fully prepared for college or
career will not be accomplished.
"We urge you to study the
options and their, ramifications
carefully and to make a decision
based on a complete understand-
ing of the issues."
The district will hold a series of
town meetings for parents of high
school students over the next
week.
At Port St. Joe High, the
forums will be June 30 (seniors),
July 1 (juniors), July 2 (sopho-
mores) and July 3 (freshmen).
All meetings will begin at 6
p.m. ET at the high school.
At the north end of the county,
school officials will hold a forum for
parents of all Wewahitchka High
School students at 6 p.m. CT on
June 30.
Discussion of the changes


Stone Working On


Mill Site Assessment
Stone Container corporation has begun environmental site assess-
ment of the former Port St. Joe mill site. The company's demolition con-
tractor, the CCC Group, is nearly through with its work to take down the
plant and clean up the site. I
Now that the land is basically cleared and opened, the property can be
easily accessed for site evaluation. Stone has submitted a site' evaluation
plan to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) for
review and approval. FDEP has since approved the schedule of work and
plan for data evaluation.
According to Stone officials, Ferrel Allen and Steve Hamilton, the
assessment work will be conducted by Malcolm Pirnie Environmental
Consultants. Work started on June 17 and will take approximately ten
days to complete.
Following completion of the field sampling actnities, which include
sampling at all mill areas for soil and groundwater, the samples will be
analyzed by an independent laboratory. Upon receipt of the analytical
results, a draft report will be prepared for submittal to the FDEP for
review.
According to Stone's report to Brownfield Advisory Committee 'nem-
bers, this site assessment will document all sample locations, sample
depths and types, along with analytical results. Where contamination is
noted it will be evaluated against appropriate FDEP, standards.
Ultimately Stone will initiate a plan of action under the guidance of
FDEP to deal with any contamination that might be found at the site.


the School Board's agenda for its
next regularly-scheduled meeting.


The meeting will be 6 p.m. on
Monday, June 30.

City's 90th Celebration Bash


Will Bring Special Guests


by Tim Croft
No birthday bash is complete
without a few special invited
guests.
The. City of Port St. Joe has
that covered.
The state's top two officials
begged off citing previous commit-
ments, but two particular friends of
the city will take part in the week-
long 90th birthday celebration for.
Port St., Joe, which ramps up on
Friday.
Rep. Bev Kilmer, R-Quincy,
who championed Gulf County for


Four Honored for Life Saving Efforts at Park


by Tim Croft was angry.
The sea, Tommy Davis said, And too many that Saturday


afternoon, were choosing to play
with the snarling beast.


Left to right-Park rangers Lori Wallace, Tommy Davis, Sean McKenzie, James Skinner, Ann Harvey, park
manager, Sheriff Frank McKeithen, and Major Joe Nugent. -Star photo


One man died, as his wife, son
and grandson watched helplessly.
But if not for the efforts of
Davis, along with rangers Sean
McKenzie, James Skinner and
Lori Wallace from St. Joseph
Peninsula State Park, the fatalities
could have been considerably
more.
In all, the four, along with
other staff at the state park,
pulled at least seven people -
sucked into riptides, in various
stages of panic and physical dan-
ger from the surf, all in a matter
of a couple of hours.
In recognition of those efforts,
the four were awarded with
plaques by Gulf County Sheriff
Frank McKeithen this week, a
small tip of the hat to folks who
tossed aside all sense of personal
safety to act as a lifeline.
Who could be counted on
when someone needed to be, who
instinctively assumed a role most
of us only dream we could play.
Who acted and yes, it is an
overused word these days but one
so appropriate here with
courage.
Who reacted in a split second
(See Honored on Page 10A)


several years before the Legislature
drew new district lines last year,
will be on hand July 1 for festivities
and the barbecue ini Frank Pate
Park.
And Rep. Allan Bense, R-
Panama City, who became Gulf
County's voice in the Florida House
of Representatives last year and is
due to become Speaker of the
House in 2005-2006, will serve as
grand marshal for the parade
through town on July 3.
The invite to. Kilmer, and her
acceptance, would seem almost a
natural for the woman who was
one of the county's biggest boosters
during one of its darkest times.
She, with the support of Gov.
Jeb Bush, helped push several ini-
tiatives aimed at aiding the county
at a time 'of need, including infra-
structure improvements, assis-
tance for the school system and
job-creation efforts.
That she would leap at the
opportunity to celebrate the city's
birthday, even though she no
longer represents the county in
Tallahassee, is simply affirmation
of her work on behalf of the area,
said Carol Davis, assistant city
clerk in Port St. Joe.
"What she did was not politi-
cal," Davis said. "It was because
she cared."
Bense, who as titular leader of
the Republicans in the GOP-domi-
nated House of Representatives,
has a travel schedule that would
make Fodor cringe, managed to
carve time out to throw down for
the birthday.
,"He could have gone to
Orlando or some other big city, but
he realized what we represent is
important to the state," Davis said.
Davis and the organizers of the
birthday celebration, which will
culminate in the traditional Fourth
of July fireworks and celebration,
set their sights even higher than
Kilmer and Bense.
A letter to the governor
received an answer, and an apolo-


"We got a response and he
wrote that if had not had other
commitments he would have been
here," Davis said.
Lt. Gov. Toni Jennings also
cited a previous engagement as
way of explanation for inability to
join in the fui.
Preparation for the seven days
of celebration have hit the home
stretch, Davis said.
"We are down to the nitty grit-
ty," she said. "We are doing the
(public relations) and getting the
word out, finalizing details."
One of those details, is working
around the illness of the captain of
the pirate ship, which traditionally
invades the shore near Frank Pate
Park every Fourth of July.
Those pirates, Davis said with
tongue planted firmly in cheek, are
quite resourceful rebels, however.
"They have 'stolen' some skiffs
and they are going to be invading
on skiffs," Davis said. "We, and we
need all the kids to help on this,
are going to do our best to fight
them off with our cannons."
There is still time for those who
wish to participate in the parade,
or vendors' desiring to set up a
booth during the week, to take part
in the week of merriment.
Anyone still interested in par-
ticipating can contact Davis at City
Hall.

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY
COLUMN
WRITTEN BY
WILLIE RAMSEY, EDITOR


Bill Who?

A few weeks ago Bill Moyer's program on the Public Broad-
cast Station aired a piece on St. Joe's plans for the Florida pan-
handle. The- show's producer was Kathleen Hughes, and as I
understand,. she spent quite a bit of time going throughout the
area interviewing local folks and gathering information for the
program.
I failed to catch the program when it aired, but I did hear,
soon thereafter, that it was rather one-sided. Not surprised at all
by that news, I took Star reporter, Tim Croft, up on his offer to
make me a copy of the transcript after it was brought up at the
Gulf County Commission meeting a few weeks ago.
I still have not seen the filmed version of the program, but the
transcript shows enough. You find yourself on the third page of
the document before a name other than Hughes (the producer),
Carl Hiaasen (columnist with the Miami Herald-we've written
about him before), or Craig Pittman (St. Petersburg Times)
appears.
After reading through the verbiage of the' program, I've decid-
ed that the St. Joe Company must be responsible for every bad
thing that has happened, not only in our county, but in our
country over the past few years. Obviously I've missed the big
picture here and these folks from down in South Florida and PBS
have come to the rescue of not only me, but the rest of us poor,
dumb panhandlers.
They seem to think that efforts to take care of infrastructure
needs now, rather than later, shows a lack of good judgment and
are somehow sinister. Working and partnering with the state and
federal governments now to help keep us from having some of the
same development nightmares that other areas across the state
have had to deal with may be thinking just a little too far outside
the box for these guys.
After all, look at what a good job they have done in their own
backyard.
Even when The St. Joe Company proved they were willing to
adjust their plans to address concerns of the communities in
which they are planning developments, the PBS trio painted a
much different picture than I know was presented to them by
some they interviewed within this community.
It was local city commissioner John Reeves, who tells how he
spent hours in an interview with Craig Pittman some time back,
and made only one negative comment during the entire inter-
view. Guess which one made the St. Petersburg Times? You
guessed right.
Now, don't geet me wrongg here. I'm certainly not saying the St.
Joe Company is perfect, nor do I believe that \\e as a commnuni
ty or region need to to give anyone full reins to do what they want
in an unbridled way.
What I do believe is they have the right as property owners to
develop their land within the realms of the codes and laws of the
county and state just as any other property owner does. In fact,
I believe it will be proven out in years to come that the smaller
developments will have a much bigger impact on our area than
those developed by St. Joe.
We have pointed out in The Star more than once that the
-number of new small subdivisions being developed in Gulf Coun-
ty alone consist of as many units as WindMark will at the end of
- its 15 to 20 year. projected build out. These property owners don't
-have to go through anywhere near the same hoops and hurdles
that St. Joe does, but as. I stated, will have just as much; and
probably more impact, yet they slip in under the radar screen.
I know representatives with the Bill Moyer's show heard a lot1
of really good information while they were here from people who
can see good from much of what is going on around us. It's a
shame they ignored the rest of the story and portrayed many of
the facts in a way to shade the truth. It seems as though they
have a personal vendetta.
We were fighting for better infrastructure in this part of the
state long before the St. Joe Company came along.

She Ought To Thank Me


Someone commented that all
my stories seem to revolve around
good and happy thoughts. And
friendly people. They asked if I haa
any unhappy vibes or knew any
unfriendly folks....


I ha\e often recounted here
how fortunate I have been. I have
mentioned many of the wonderful
people who have helped me along
over the years. I am thankful for
those \vho have influenced add
made positive contributions to my
life's journey. I suspect my little
blurbs are a reflection of that
happy pilgrimage.
SBut, most certainly, there have.
been a few bumps along the way.
One of the biggest was Janice
Elaine Hankins. And, let me make


this perfectly clear at the outset.
Jan is not. and was not. unlnend-
I\ to most everyone else in the
world
,JusI me
Jan Hankins \ as born with a
strong dislike for me! And she did-
n't meet me until she was fifteen! 1
was in college. Her mother worked
for the university. Her father ran a
summer baseball team that was
cordial enough to let me suit up for
them. They lived on a neat lot high
up above Highway 64 where it


What More Could A Person Want Out of His Garden?


I'VE HAD THE BENEFIT
of many gardens without
planting one myself, here of
late.
I don't even think I could
have grown the variety of veg-
etables I have received this
year, were I to plant and culti-
vate my own garden.
I do have three tomato
plants growing, although they
haven't produced any tomatoes
yet. I have one "volunteer"
which has provided me with a
few tiny tomatoes.
They're good, too! .
Tomatoes are my "crop"
and have been for the last sev-
eral years. Last year, I tried
growing them in buckets. I got
plenty of vines--so long as I
kept them watered every
day--but not many tomatoes.
But this year, my diet has
been expanded way beyond a
few tomatoes and an occasion-
al squash, which people with a
surplus have given me.
But this year Oh, this


year! I have hit the mother lode
of fresh, free vegetables of
every kind.
There's been tomatoes,
sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes,
squash, zucchini, [ugh!] broc-
coli, corn, butter beans, green
beans, peas, and even a nice
slab of fresh-caught red snap-
per!

WHAT MORE COULD a
person want, out of his garden
... if he had one?
"I'm not a country doctor,
but people keep "paying" me in
the time-honored currency of
produce. I'll just have to recip-
rocate if [and when] my sat-


sumas are ripe.
Ron Isbel, the advertising
manager here at The Star, tells
me that he read such good
reports of the production of my
satsuma tree, that he went out
and bought himself one and
planted it. He says it's about
two and a half feet tall and
already has three satsumas
growing on it.
If people keep planting sat-
sumas, we'll have to change
the "native tree" of Port St.
Joe, to the satsuma instead of
the cabbage palm!
Wouldn't that be some-
thing? To be able to drive down
Reid Avenue, picking yourself


a satsuma orange anytime you
wanted it?
I don't look for them to get
that plentiful.

,BUT, BACK TO OUR orig-
inal subject of free vegetables.
Dr. Bpb King hasn't been
around, lately, with his free
samples of rutabagas and
onions. I expect him just any
day, though. His "sharecrop-
pers" have planted a huge gar-
den--again--on the north side
and behind his office.
You'd think he was growing
food for everybody -in town,
from the size, and variety of
his garden.
Ii don't know how it is now,
but, it used to be, if you went
in for any dental work, you left
with a sack-ful of vegetables,
rather than a sucker or a piece
of hard candy, if you didn't
grunt.
My neighbor, Dr. "Dusty"
May, the other dentist in town,
doesn't grow a garden; he fish-


es! And sometimes he catches
too many and shares.

DR. "DUSTY'S" LITTLE
boys have all but abandoned.
their tree house project in the
oak tree, which stands astride
his yard and mine.
They even took their "eleva-
tor" down. It was constructed
of a piece of cord, tied to one of.
Carla's better sauce pans and
hauled supplies aloft for the
construction project.
Maybe, the reason they
have stopped work on their
project is because Carla took
their "elevator" back in the
house to cook up a mess of
peas.
I remember tree houses
and how much fun they were to
build and "hang out" in. A
house isn't a home unless it
has a large tree in the yard to
construct a tree house in.
They're almost as much of
a necessity as a spring garden
patch!


WHAT I'M REALLY wait-
ing for, is the local watermelon
crop to "come in". I see where
Graceville is already getting
ready for it.
Graceville makes a big hoo-
tenanny over its watermelon
crop, and they deserve it.
When a community pro-
duces as many watermelons as
it does, along with its peanut
crop in the fall, it deserves to
thumb its galouses.
Graceville may not be
known for much, but its water-
tnelon reputation is enough to
"carry it" in my estimation.
There's nothing quite like a
good, sweet, cold watermelon
on a hot day!
My daughter tried growing
watermelons, up in Dalkeith
on her horse farm and the very
day before they intended to
harvest the ripe beauties, a
pack of coyotes came by and
ate the heart out of every one.
They knew what was the best
part!

crossed over Monteagle Mountain
in the little town of Sewanee. Ten-
nessee.
Miss Peggy Hankins took pity
on a homesick, hollow eyed. stud-
ied-out undergraduate and united
me out to her house for some
nounshment and conversation. I
was not the first or the last student
to be afforded such an opportunity,
by the Hankins.
I was sitting at the kitchen
table, enjoying some, absolutely
delicious .brownies with the little|
sugar stuff sprinkled on top when
Jan and I first laid eyes on each
other. She bounded down the hall,
stopped up quickly when she saw
me and said curtly, "Well, who arei
you and what are you doing in my
house?"
Our relationship deteriorated
rapidly from that first meeting.
I reckon maybe I was an intru-
sion into her little world. Or she'
didn't like the fuss that both her!
parents' made over me. Perhaps,
she automatically lumped me in!
the "uppity college boy" category.
She may have had some premoni-
tion about me. Possibly she didn't
like either of the two shirts I
owned.
I think mostly it was the bas-
ketball.
Jan was quite a basketball
player. She played for the high
school down in Winchester and
over the years that I attended the
university she developed into a
heck of a player. She was All-
County and Most Valuable Player
and Best Offense and all that
stuff....
I don't remember exactly how
we moved from the kitchen table to
that old basketball goal out back. I
know we played one-on-one for
hours on end. She couldn't beat
me. That would drive her nuts! She
wouldn't accept that me being five
years older, a foot taller and seven-
ty-five pounds heavier could have
anything to do with it.
Of course, I would not let her
.win! She was quick as a cat. And
she could forever more dribble and
shoot! But she didn't go to her left
very good. And I could out rebound
her all day long.'The more I would
win the madder she'd get! Her dark
hair would be plastered to her
forehead. Those big eyes would be
flashing darts .at me. She would
start to mumble things under her
breath that I was thankful I could-
n't fully understand!
We'd stop for a lemonade
break and to catch our breath. She
wipe the sweat off her face and
grab that ball and say, "I can beat
you this time."
I Listen, in a few minutes I have
those little veins on her neck stick-
ing out! She'd mumble louder. And
she'd start tripping me as I'd drib-
ble past. If I got a point up, she'd
go for my knee! I'd leap for a
rebound and she'd kick me in the
shin. In a fight over a loose ball she
would bite my wrist!
Listen, those mountain girls
took their basketball seriously
She couldn't beat me and she

Budget Committee Gains Board Favor


Gulf County commissioners
heard their second report from the
Budget Review Board prior to their
regular meeting Tuesday evening.
The committee was appointed by

ment, several individual budget sug-
gestions and adoption of no more
than a 10% increase as a starting
point for budget negotiations for the
county Road Department and Public
Works.
The first of those suggestions
dealt with $1.6 million in debt the
county owes for items ranging from
equipment purchases to debt on the
Indust"4l Park. In all, Weston said
there are 22 notes with a payoff
schedule of between 3 to 15 years at
interest rates ranging from 4 to 9%.
Total yearly payments on these.
notes run $473,000 and interest
will total *$298,000. The budget
committee proposed the board con-
solidate all 22 notes into one loan
which would be paid off in three to
five years at today's low interest
rates.
According to data generated by
the group, the loans could not only
be paid off in three to five years at a
much lower rate, but annual pay-
ments would actually be nearly the
same or less depending on how
many years the board might elect to
refinance. Furthermore, savings, on
interest payments alone would
range between $208,000 to
$127,000 depending upon whether
the terms are at three or five years,
with the greater savings being at
three years.
The committee also suggested
that any savings be earmarked for
Reserve Fund, to adopt a minimum
debt policy and to establish a capi-
tal equipment board to manage debt
for the future years.
Commissioners embraced the
debt management plan and agreed
to go out for Request For Proposals
to finance the consolidation of debt.
Budget Review Committee
members also reported on several
budget line items and county offices
where budgets had been reviewed.
Those ranged from the commission.
budget ',to the County Health
Department. The only line item that
really drew much concern was the
county budget which includes
increased cost for insurance.
It looks as though rates are
expected to increase in the range of
$240,000 for next year's budget
with a total insurance cost budgeted
at $1.4 million. During discussions,
the board agreed that the committee
should meet with the county's
insurance consultant and discuss
the increases and what might be
done to help limit increases.
Members of the Budget Review
Committee are Charlie Weston,
Chairman, Michael Hammond,
Curtis Low, Betty McNeill and Alan
McNair.. "
QTHER ITEMS OF BUSINESS
..* Held a public hearing on sev-
eral Gulf County Planning
Development and Review Board


Recommendations. The board fol-
lowed the planning board's recom-
mendation on preliminary plat
approvals, a variance and final plat
approvals.
Heard a report from assistant
clerk Becky Norris that the annual
county audit report is completed
and copies were handed out to
board members. Norris also report-
ed that the state has made several
changes to audit procedures which
will likely cost the county more
money in the future.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
advised the board that Dead Lakes
Park should be open for business by
the first of July. He told the board
that fees generated from campers
should help defer the cost of operat-
ing the park.
Gene Dykes approached the
board requesting commissioners
rework the boat launch at the Gulf
County Canal under the George G.
Tapper Bridge. Specifically, he said
that a stop needs to be in place at
the end of the ramp to stop boaters
from running off the end of the
ramp when launching boats.
Dennis Sculley asked the
board to stop truck traffic from
using Redfish Street to haul sand
from the pit behind Highland View.
The board agreed to look at some
alternative routes.

209-211 REID AENUE PORT ST. JOE 850-2271278


by Royce S. Rolstad, III
Lynn Todd with the Port St.
Joe Waste Water Treatment Plant
S said that a record has been set for
the month of June for the amount
of rain that has fallen in the last
S few weeks.
There have been several days
this month that have produced a
lot of rainfall. The biggest days
were June 7 and 8 with 4.42 inch-
es. Those two days were followed
by the 22nd with 2.5 inches and
the 19th with 2.4 inches.
As of June 23, Port St. Joe
received 12.69 inches of rain,
which set a record for the amount
of rainfall that Port St. Joe usually
receives for the month of June.
"We are above average for this
month," Todd said. "June is a typ-
ically dry month (for Port St. Joe)."
On average, Port- St. Joe usual-
ly sees around 4.83 inches for the
month of June.
: The City of Port St. Joe has
S been collecting rainfall data since
1974 and Todd said this is the
largest amount of rain Port St. Joe


Port Authority Commissioner
'Gary Ross recently attended the
S American Association of Port
Authorities bi-annual seminar on
Public Relations and Maritime
Economic Development in Tacoma,
Washington. Over 60 ports from
the U.S., Canada and Mexico
attended the three-day event host-
S ed by the Port of Tacoma.
"The key idea I took away from
the event was the importance of
public relations (communication)
with the local community. I will
recommend to our board that we
take a more proactive approach to,
keeping our community informed
on the value and progress of the
i port here in Port St. Joe," said
Ross.
. J "Another key point from the
conference is the fact that ports are
the fastest growing sector of the
S U.S. economy. In Florida one in
every 20 jobs is'tied to a port. This
Underscores even further the value
of a port as an indisputable eco-
nomic engine for our area," said

has received in the month of June
in that 29 year history.
Todd expects the rain to double
in the next three months with the
state going into hurricane season.
Wewahitchka has received
about 7.39 inches so far this month
in rain, with 1.82 inches- the
most rain they have received in a
single 24-hour period
Chipper Wade, city superin-
tendent of the Wewahitchka said
the two biggest days for rainfall in
Wewahitchka were on June 3 and
4.
On the 3rd Wewahitchka
received 1.82 inches and on the 4th
1.24 inches.
Wade said there really isn't an
average for the month of June for
Wewahitchka. In recent years, the
rainfall has varied for the month ol
June.
In June of 2002 Wewahitchka
received 1.96 inches, in 2001 they
received 8.42 inches and in 2000,
5.13 inches.
Overall, it has been a wet
month for Gulf County.


Port Authority Continuing

Efforts to Reactivate Port


Members of the Port Authority
have been pegging away at efforts
to revive the Port of Port St. Joe.
Last week marketing coordina-
tor Ken Karpinski was in town for a
series of meetings and to give an
update on progress being made to
market the port.
"We're getting tremendous
S response," Karpinski told members
of the Port St. Joe Rotary Club dur-
ing its meeting last Thursday.
SKarpinski said he felt several
opportunities had already passed
by because of the lack of a perma-
nent port location agreement. He
went on to express beliefs that the
port has very good potential for
Success as one of 14 deep water
Sports within the state.
When asked by Port St. Joe
Mayor Frank Pate, how long it
might take t6 see significant port
activity. Karpinski stuck to hisear-
lier prediction .that three years
would be a reasonable time frame.
He did add that there was a real
possibility shipping opportunities
could happen much quicker.
The Port Authority is continu-
ing to meet with the City of Port St.


Joe, St. Joe Company and Stone
Container to hash out an agreed
land use agreement for the proper-
ty at the old mill site, as well as
surrounding St. Joe lands.
Stephen Seibert, former head of
DCA, is facilitating the meetings.
Ultimately the Port Authority
hopes these meeting will help bring
answers to questions concerning a
long term port use and develop-
ment plan.
During the Port Authority's
regular meeting Monday, one of the
items of discussion was a land
swap deal with the St. Joe
Company trading the 3.9 acre deep
water port property near the mari-
na for canal frontage property with-
in the Gulf County Canal. The
group is working with a prospective
business to locate at the canal site.

Master Plan, expected to be com-
pleted by August of this year, work-
ing on a public relation campaign
to inform the community of their
efforts to bring jobs to the area.


It was also apparent that
mixed use development was a large
part of the growth of many ports.
Corpus Christi, for instance, has a
minor league baseball team as part
of its port program.
The recent west coast strike
also brought home the importance
to the U.S. economy of ports. The
wealth of this country is absolutely
tied to commerce coming through
ports, according to Ross.

State Signs Off On Structure for


St. Joseph Bay Buffer Preserve


by Tim Croft
All buffers need their own
buffers.
St. Joseph Bay Buffer Preserve
now has the framework of its own in
place.
State officials have signed off on
the structure and by-laws of a
Community Support Organization
(CSO) for th buffer and aquatic pre-
serve system wrapping as a cocoon
around St. Joseph Bay.
The organization is essentially a
grassroots public support and man-
agement partner with the state for
critical.lands and watersheds.
After all, who has more of a stake
in protecting such ecosystems, i.e. St.
Joseph Bay, than those whose lives
are inextricablylinked with them.
And as, with so much of the state
budget, funding for management of
valuable state lands has been con-
stricted, CSOs have assumed a more
central role in protecting buffer areas
throughout Florida.
"It's public land," said Roy Ogles
of the Department of Environmental
Protection's Division of Coastal and
Aquatics ."And we want to interact
.with the public, to draw them in to
help with aquatic preservation."


The state has found success in
that endeavor through CSOs. And
state officials, in turn, must formally
approve the group that will be work-
ing on, improving limited public
access to it and protecting public
lands.
For the critical local watershed,
that group is the Friends of St. Joseph
Bay Preserves.
A steering committee to establish
the group's structure, by-laws and
mission has been in place for a year or
so.
Their work, essentially sketching
its goals and proposed activities, was
forwarded to the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection for
approval.
"It's important the state under-
stands the group's purpose, along the
line of protecting the buffer preserve
and in community outreach," said
Marie Steele Romanelli of the St. Joe
Wildlife Sanctuary and who spear-
headed the steering committee's
work.
With state the signed off, the
Friends have moved forward with
establishing it as a non-profit organi-
zation, involving an Everest of paper-
work.

Non-residents 16 and older can buy

"They are very reasonable and
they have never been easier to get,"
Kirkland said.
Anyone can go by the Tax
Collector's Office to purchase a
license.
Log onto to www.floridaconser-

take individuals to a site that sells
state licenses.

Soon, the group will undertake
the formal election of a permanent
board along with a membership drive.
'We're excited about our mem-
bership drive and seeing our organi-
zation take off from there," Ogles said.
The first major event of that drive
will be a low country boil at Frank
Pate Park on July 4 as part of the City
of Port St. Joe's celebration of its 90th
birthday.
The goal is simple beyond
involvement, awareness.
"It's a public interface with the
buffer preserve and its goals and mis-
sions," Ogles said.
And it is critical, the most impor-
tant role of the CSO.
To bring the public into the equa-
tion, not only as advocates of the
buffer and the bay, but as partici-
pants in its management and its use
in non-intrusive ways.
"These are state lands, public
lands," Romanelli said. "They are not
only to protect the land and the bay,
but they are there for non-impact use.
That's important for enjoyment, recre-
ation and education and to be in
touch with the land.
"This is also about protection of
the bay, protection of our way of life."

Archaeological work is also being

The buffer preserve center, the

'That will be a good education

During the summer, workers are

Vamar Nomination Setting Sail


by Tim Croft
Daniel Beck's face softens
beneath his tan fedora at the mere
mention of shipwrecks.
His round face with the Mount


versation, has been something of
his muse, a connection no land
lubber would ever understand.
"Shipwrecks," he said with the
knowing smile that typically
accompanies fond memories of a

Which compelled Beck to write
a letter to Gov. Jeb Bush about two
years ago, requesting that the state
recognize the wreck of the Vamar
as a significant state historical


S.S. Vamar photos and memorabilia were on display at the meeting.


Rushmore nose has clearly been
etched by a lifetime on the water.
It has been his home as long as
he can remember, the past 18 years

former paramour. "I've always been

'They're romantic," Beck con-

wheel, "although it's a tragedy to

The state has such a program,
with eight current shipwreck sites
around the state, from Pensacola to
the Keys, classified as historic pre-
serves.

Smith and his fellow archaeologists
at the Florida Division of Historic
Preservation on their journey to
understand that history.
What they discovered was not
all that far a cry from Davy Jones'
Locker or Nemo.
And brought them to the Port
St. Joe Fire Station last week in
search of public input and support
concerning Beck's recommenda-
tion to make the Vamar the ninth
State Underwater Archaeological
Preserve.
Such preserves, typically,
include brochures and maps,
including interpretative tours of the
wreckage for divers and snorkelers.
There is a bronze plaque desig-
nating the site as a state preserve
and, in most cases, an, onshore dis-
play and interpretative site,
explaining the history and impor-
tance of the wreckage.
"Part of our role is to educate
the public, particularly divers, on
the importance of these sites and
how important it is to preserve
these sites rather than mine them,"
said Della Scott, also a state under-
water archaeologist.
".There is always statewide,
nationwide and international inter-
est in these sites. (The preserve
program) has proven to be very
popular and successful."
And as Danniy Grizzard, of
Florida Aquatic and Marine in-
Panama City noted, the wreckage
of the Vamar is a "no-brainer" for
the preserve program.
"It should have happened
already," he said, adding that
establishing such a preserve has a
negligible impact on fishing access
and costs little for the local com-
munity.
The Vamar was built in 1919
and had been through several
names before the one it went to the
bottom wearing.
Its heyday came after it was.
sold to Admiral Richard E. Byrd,
who renamed her after his mother
Eleanor Bolling, and used. it during
his explorations of Antarctica.
It was the first metal-hulled
vessel Byrd had it steel re-
enforced to explore the far
Sou then climes; and was used pri-
marily to bring three aeroplanes to
the Antarctic.
Its 'local history has the air of
the film noir war mystery.


Loaded with lumber it is
known locally as the Lumbership -
the ship sank on the western side
of the channel as it left Port St. Joe
in-1942 bound for the U.S. military
base in Cuba.
The reasons are unknown,
though the prevailing theory, which
according to state historians needs
documentation. is that the ship
was scuttled by her German cap-
tain at a time when the Germans
were'doing e\-erdthing possible to
disrupt American shipping.
Regardless of why it sits in the
sea bottom, it is the history of the
ship that brought the state archae-
ologists to the Fire Station last
week to gauge public support for
Beck's proposal.
'What does the local communi-
ty want?" Smith' said. "Historic
preservation is a community thing.
Our jb is to interpret and integrate
it with all of Florida's treasures,
and this is a great one.":
The community support, which
will-be critical in making the project
a reality and, in turn, a success,
appeared evident.
Nearly 30 people showed up on
a Wednesday night church,night,-
despite a last-minute change in
location for the meeting.
City councilman John Reeves,
representing City of Port St. Joe
Mayor Frank Pate, said the mayor


was in support of the proposal to
make the Vamar a preserve.
An executive with the Bay
County Chamber of Commerce
added the support of that group.
And the effort received its first
donation for the exhibit supporters
hope to one day create.
Local resident Marjorie Parker
donated a book she had purchased
from Goodwill for 50 cents.
It was a first edition copy ol
Byrd's autobiography with a letter
signed by Byrd thanking a support-
er ofhis proposed Antarctic expedi-
tion.
,The preferred path from this
point is the establishing of an infor-
mal group to help marshal commu-
nity support for the project.
"(Creating the preserve) is a
partnership with the community,"
Smith said.
Another meeting will be sched-
uled for sometime in late July, like-
ly in Mexico Beach..
Locals were also urged to
express their support to state lead-
ers, such as Secretary of State
Glenda Hood, by writing letters.
The anchor to creating a pre-
serve from the site of the Vamar, all
170 feet of her, must come, Smith
and Scott said again and again,
from the comnmuruty.
"Let's make it happen,"
Grizzard said. "Let's get it rolling."

lose a boat."
The lure of shipwrecks, of
unlocking history from the ocean's
grip, ultimately led to Beck's
courtship with the S.S. Vamar.
The ship, or what is left of it in
25 feet of gulf water near Beacon
Hill, was initially just a snorkeling
and diving destination, but the
relationship soon took hold.
"It's history," Beck said of !he
Vamar. "We're a young country and

26 of "Jerry's Kids" Enjoy




Week of Camp at Rish Park


Thirteen year-old Caleb Gill is joined by a camp volunteer for a morning of fishing.


by Royce S. Rolstad, III
Twenty-six of "Jerry's kids"
were unable to contain their excite-
ment, because they spent the
whole week at Rish Park on Cape
San Bias fishing, swimming, and
having a lot of fun.
Rosemary Wesolowski, health
care service coordinator for
Muscular Dystrophy Association
(MDA) for the North'Florida and
Southern Georgia region raised
funds so the kids could spend a
week at Rish Park.
Since 1980 the MD Association
has been bringing kids to Rish Park
for a week of fun.
Billy Quinn, the park manager
said, "The park was built exclusive-
ly for the handicapped." He added
that the park usually has around
5,000 people visit each year.
Wesolowski said they would
not be at Rish Park without Billy
Quinn who is big supporter of
MDA. 7
Caleb Gill, a 13'a 6-old "froiim
Tallahassee said, "I like camp a
lot...it's really fun."
"Fishing is my favorite sport,"


Gill said with a smile on his face. It
has been one of his favorite activi-
ties while he has been at camp.
Andy Minard said camp means
to him "Just getting away from
home and just having fun."
.At camp, kids get to fish, swim
in the pool, and take boat rides on
the bay.
The one activity that every kid
agrees on is "pool-time." It is a time
for the kids to sit back and relax.
Wesolowski said, 'The pool is
crucial for their mobility." It allows
the kids to be buoyant without hav-
ing to move around much.
For the kids, it's about having
fun, for the volunteers it's about
spending time with great kids.
Azar Boehm, a volunteer from
Jesuit High School in Tampa said
working with the kids is a "life
changing experience."
Ben Morgan, also a volunteer
from Jesuit High School said that
he .really. likes, working. WtLh the
kids because it is fun.
Azar said their high school has
a motto which they use when work-
ing with the kids, "Men for others."


He added that this was a way for
them to use their abilities to help
others.
Earlier in the week the kids,


Eleven year-old Michael Odom
said he didn't like being stranded
on the water.
Austin Gleaton chimed in and
said there are. three things about
this year's camp that he likes,
"Fishing, swimming, and a blown-
up boat," which brought a round of
laughter from both the kids and
volunteers.
One camper said that being
stranded on the boat for an hour is
going to be the highlight of camp.
When the campers got back
from the boat trip they all put on
their trunks and bathing suits and
jumped in the pool.
Sergeants Mark Cutler and
Evette Farmer were on hand to
clock the kids during their wheel-
chair race to see who was going the
fastest. A few citations were written
for speeding.
Everyone who has come in con-
tact with the kids falls in love with
them.
ponnis Berchneider who is in
her sixth-year as one of the cooks
for the MDA camp said, 'These kids
keep me coming back; year after
year."
Sandra Devine who. is serving
in her second-year as camp nurse
had one thing to say about the
kids, 'They are great." She did add
that there is one person who

had a dance, played some putt-putt -
golf, and the boys threw a modeling
contest in which they dressed up
as girls.
On Tuesday, they had a day
filled with many activities. Some
sat on the dock and fished and oth-
ers were taken out on the bay by
Sthe Gulf' County Sheriffs
Department.
"We enjoy coming out here,"
said Major Joe Nugent. 'There are
some real special kids here. They
are real appreciative and they do
not gripe or complain about any-
thing.
With Major Nugent at the
wheel, it took two trips to take all
the kids out on the water. One
group had what Wesolowski' called
with a laugh, "A three hour tour."
When the group was heading
back into shore the motor ran hot Brandon Goeller racing to
causing them to.be stranded for the finish line to see what speed

radar-gun.


,deserves a lot of credit for making
the MDA camp happen, Rosemary
Wesolowski.
S"She's one of the most compas-
sionate ladies I know," said Devine.
"Her goal and sincere desire is to
see that each camper has a happy,
positive, and safe experience at MD
camp...She is a true asset to this
MD camp as well as to the National
MD Association."
The activities continued well
into the afternoon and evening. At
7 p.m. on Tuesday night Gulf


County Sheriff Frank McKeithen
paid a visit to the kids and told
them a few stories about ghosts
and goblins-things that go bump
in the night.
But the smiles on the faces ol
the kids show that the hard work
that has been put into MD camp
has been worth it.
All the kids agree that they are
having a fun time at MD camp and
are looking forward to it again next
year.

Port St. Joe High and Middle


Schools Get New Roof After 35 Years


by Royce S. Rolstad, III
The song with the lyrics, "Rain
drops keep falling on my head"
rings too clearly to those who walk
the halls of Port St. Joe High
School, but not anymore.
After 35 years of having to deal


School have had to face for many
years.
Former Port St. Joe High
School principal, Chris Earley said
fixing the roof of the high school
was in the planning stages for
about 10 years and in August of

with a leaky roof, faculty, staff, and
.students of Port St. Joe High and
Middle School will no longer have
to worry about getting wet when
they are making their way to their
classrooms or lockers.
The biggest shock to Mary Lou
Cumbie, secretary of Port St. Joe
High School is "Coming in the
building and there is no water."
A problem the faculty, staff,
and students of Port St. Joe High


with the high school since 1982.
John Palmer, athletic director
of Port St. Joe High School said
there were "Several days where our
equipment room would be soaked.
We would have to take things out
and dry them."
Palmer also said there were
times when the lights would short
and go out in the locker rooms.
S "It was real inconvenient for
the kids," Palmer said.
Cumbie said over the years
there has not been much mainte-
nance to the roof except for a few
patches here and there, but none of
those have lasted.
The middle school side has also
had its fair share of problems.
"Our main problem was when
we had hard, hard rains," said
Carolyn Witten, principal of Port St.
Joe Middle School.
"We, bagged all our computers
when we a got a threat of storm,"
Witten said.
On several occasions Witten
f"hatdt' go out to the school on


weekends to cover up computers
before a storm swept through town.
"I pushed and swept water on
many occasions with the custodi-
ans," recalls Witten. 'There was
always the danger of kids slipping
down."
Mitch Bouington, band director
for both the high school and middle
school said there have been times
when ceiling tile would fall next to'
students during band practice.
Now, the faculty is finally able
to say, "So long" to those buckets
and trash cans filled with water,
and "good-bye" to the days of hav-
ing to cover up computers with
trash bags. Those memories are
just that, memories.
According to Cumbie, the roof-
ing is complete except for few small
spots that need to be taken care of.
Chuck Gannon, former head
football coach of Port St. Joe High
School had 'this to say, "Anytime
you get something that you don't
have to worry about is good."' .


2002 construction began and took
the entire school year to complete.
"It's about time we got a new
one," Earley said. "It will be won-
derful to have a roof that is not
leaking."
Cumbie recalls many days
when they had to put buckets
everywhere to keep the floors from
getting soaked. "As long as I can
remember we have had to battle the
rain," Cumbie said, who has been

Saturday's Tourney Benefits GALA


by Royce S. Rolstad, III
The first annual
Dockside/GALA fishing tourna-
ment is set to kick off this
Saturday at 5:00 a.m. ET at the
Port St. Joe Marina.
Dana Boyer, fundraising chair-
person for Gulf Alliance for Local
Arts (GALA) said she hopes the
tournament will raise $10,000 for
GALA, an organization designed to
promote visual, performing, liter-
ary, and media art in the commu-
nity.
Lee Fontaine, tournament
director said he feels that raising
money for GALA is "...good for the
community."
"A lot of local artists have
never had representation in the


past," Fontaine said.
Fontaine feels that this tour-
nament will provide the funds
which will allow for more artists in
the community to be represented.
The money raised from the
tournament will be utilized in sev-
eral ways. Those include perform-
ing arts, arts in school and 'to pro-
vide the senior citizens center with
art supplies.
Boyer said Dockside Cafe
plans on sponsoring two fishing
tournaments a year-one to bene-
fit GALA and the other to benefit.
indigent dental care.
"We couldn't have this tourna-
ment without Glenn and Charlotte
Singleton and the fundraising
committee," Boyer said.
"I am a member of it and think


it is a good cause," said Singleton
as to why he wanted to hold a tour-
nament to raise funds for GALA.
For Singleton, funds raised for
GALA means "...there's some non-

Dixie Girls Tournament Underway


The Port St. Joe Girls Softball
League has been hosting the
District Tournament this past
week, with play continuing
throughout the remainder of this
week.
The deluge of rain Saturday
stopped, at ,midday and allowed
the tourney to begin, Saturday
afternoon, with teams from
Sneads, Marianna, Grand Ridge,
Wewahitchka, Franklin County
and St. Joe participating.
In the older girls' Ponytails
division,. St. Joe defeated Sneads,
10-6 behind the pitching of Kaelyn
Williams, Jessi Moore and Kristin
Posey.
Williams pitched the first two
innings, allowed two walks and
no runs. Moore relieved her, pitch-
ing one and two-thirds inning, and
recorded two strikeouts," four
walks, and allowed three runs on
three hits. Posey completed the
game, pitching two and a third
innings, striking out five, while
giving up three walks, and allowed
three runs on no hits.
Leading Pitters for St. Joe
were Kayla Minger with a double,
two singles, and four RBI, Kristin
Posey with two singles and three
RBI, Caroline Allen with two sin-
gles and two RBI, Kaeyln Williams
with two singles and a RBI, and
Angela Canington added a single.
Monday evening Wewahitchka
defeated Port St. Joe, winning a
barn burner, 1-0 behind the stel-
lar pitching performance of
Samantha Rich. She threw a no-
hitter, and recorded 14 strikeouts.


Kayla Minger also had a great
performance for the St. Joe girls.
She pitched all six innings, and
recorded 10 strikeouts, two hits,
and one walk. The walk resulted
in the lone run scored in "the
game.
Wewahitchka lost to Grand
Ridge Tuesday evening, resulting
in one loss each for St. Joe and
Wewa. They will face each other
Thursday night at 7:00 in the
loser's bracket. The championship
game of the double elimination
tourney is scheduled for Friday at
7:00.
ANGELS DIVISION

softball team opened the District
Tournament with a win Saturday.
They defeated, Grand Ridge 7-5.
Adrian Browning (2-2), Katie
Lacour (2-3), and Katie Gardner
(2-3) were the leading hitters.
Browning went the distance as the
winning pitcher. After a shaky first
inning in which she surrendered
three runs, the 10-year-old right-
hander settled down, striking out
11 and giving up fourhits.
PSJ..... 0 0 1 0 4 2-7 6
GR ....3. 3 0 2 0 0-5 4
Do you believe in miracles?
The Angels sure do. they picked
up their second win of the tourney
in unbelievable fashion Monday
night with a 10-9 come-from-
behind victory over Blountstown.
It was well past midnight
when relief pitcher Katie Lacour
struck out the final Blountstown
batter and nailed the win for St.
Joe.


St. Joe trailed the entire game
going into the last inning behind
9-5. They scored five, taking the
lead, and Lacour, with, great
defensive play. from her fielders,,
shut the opponents down without
a score in the last half of the
inning.
Defensive standouts for the
Angels were 'Fanequa Larry,
Khyrsten Keys, and Megan
Gannon. The win was a total team
effort. The ladies named above
and Casi Tullis, Katie Gardner,
Kristi Davis, Adrian Browning,
Lacey Strickland, Lilla Dykes,
Lindsay Martin, and Erin White
make up the Port St. Joe Angels
team.
PSJ...... 0 0 2 3 0 5-10
B'town...5.0 2 0 2 0- 9
The Angels will be playing in
the finals Thursday night at 7:00
p.m.

Honored=
Who reacted in a split second to
save another despite the personal
risks, who stepped up in a way
most of us only hope we could
when faced with similar circum-
stances.
"We just appreciate them,"
McKeithen said in giving citations
for acting above and beyond the
call of duty to the four rangers.
"We're just proud of them," he
continued. "To have people out
there who protect the citizens of
Gulf County and those who are
visiting or on vacation.
"If you wear a uniform you are
part of the family. We're proud of
them."
The last day in May was hard-
ly one for postcards.
A storm front was hovering,
generally smothering the sun, and
the winds were brisk, the seas
foamy.
"It was extremely rough,"
Davis said. "The surf was angry. It
was really angry."
The red flags were flying.
And Davis and his fellow park
rangers were busy.
Fly the flags, erect warning
signs, educate about the dangers,
it just sometimes doesn't matter.
The ocean it seems, and those
who live near it understand, is an
irresistible force, a magnet.
And from the warm sand of
the beach, the dangers seem so
benign.
Those dangers quickly sur-
faced.


(From Page 1)


Davis and McKenzie were
helping a father and his two chil-
dren, caught in an undertow from
the water when the radio cackled
with word of a possible drowning.
A 73-year-old man, floating on
a rubber float in the surf with his
son was missing.
Skinner was already on site
when Davis and McKenzie arrived.
The man's wife was in the water
searching for a sign, any sign.
"If we could have gotten to him
then, when he had been in the
water about 10 minutes, I knew
that was pushing it but we had a
chance," Davis said.
It was not to be.
The man was ultimately locat-
ed, after being under the water at
least 20 minutes, out past the sec-
ond sandbar. The water was
spilling at least four feet over their
heads at that point, Davis estimat-
ed.
Davis and McKenzie battled
their way back to shore, pulling
the now all but lifeless body with
them.
Only then did either man real-
ize the precipice they had strad-
dled.
"When it dawned on me we
just went out in the same condi-
tions that that man drowned in,"
Davis said, shaking his head in
amazement even three weeks later.
"I felt sorry for his wife, his
son, his grandchildren. I prayed
we had got him out of the water in
time. If we had just got to him


early."
Skinner and Wallace set to
work on the man the second he
was out of the water, CPR, chest
pumps, everything possible.
They got him on the back of a
pickup truck and got him to the
entrance to meet the ambulance.
The man was pronounced dead at
the hospital.
Incredibly, Davis and
McKenzie, who in an aside was a
collegiate swimmer at Florida
State University, would soon have
more work to do, more heroics to
demonstrate.
In less than 30 minutes they
encountered two more swinimers
in distress.
"They were on the sandbar
and in a panic," Davis said.
McKenzie and ,Davis helped
them to safety. Mere minutes later,
it was a family, including two five-
year-olds.
By the time .the beach was
cleared of all swimmers by park
rangers, seven had been pulled
from the water.
"It happened so quick," Davis
said: "You'd tell them to get out of
the surf and in a few minutes we'd
be back down there."
It was the only time in the few
years he's worked at the park that
Davis said he had gotten per-
turbed with visitors.
Not that he would have done
anything different, had halted, like
Shoeless Joe Jackson at the
boundary of the ball diamond in

Field of Dreams, on the beach
instead of doing what he did,
plunging in to the maelstrom to
assist.
"We wouldn't hesitate," Davis
said. "We'd do it again if we had
to."
Then, delineating the line
between thought and action,
between heroic- and non-action,
McKenzie added, "You don't have
time to think about it. You just do
it."
A word, though, about what
folks can do to save the Davises,
the McKenzies, the Skinners and
Wallaces and the rest, from the
events of that wild day.
First, mind the flags.
Many of us in this hurry-up
world have forgotten what a red
light at an street intersection
means, but a red flag on the beach
means, literally, that death is
stalking. .
If the flag isn't enough, look at
the water. Roiling water spells
trouble.
"If the water looks scary don't
get in," Davis said.
And if, like the child who
insists on touching the hot burner,
the urge for a dip in the sea is too
much, keeping one's head when
tugged by a riptide, when
ensnared in a undertow, is critical.
"Dbn't panic and don't fight it,"
McKenzie said. "Most people
drown when they first get into an
undertow and they panic."
Fight the 'inclination to swim
toward the beach, McKenzie said.
Instead swim parallel to the beach,
diagonally to the current, until it
releases you.
Don't count on there being
heroes nearby.

CLEANING CHILD'S
MOUTH
Even before a child's first teeth begin
S; appearing, you should start cleaning the
i. mouth to keep food residue and bacteria
from damaging newly erupting teeth. After
every feeding, wipe the baby's teeth and
gums with a damp washcloth or gauze pad
to remove harmful plaque. You can sit on
S,.., I the sofa with the baby's head in you lap or
lay the baby on the floor or changing table
to make sure you can easily see into the baby's mouth.
i. If plaque is allowed to build on the baby's teeth, the tooth
enamel could become decayed. If the decay is left untreated, the
primary teeth may be prematurely lost. Children need all 20 of
their primary teeth for proper eating, speaking and appearance.
These teeth also reserve space in the jaw for the permanent teeth
that later erupt. A complete set of healthy primary teeth allows
proper' development of a child's jaw and face. You should, begin
brushing ard flossing your child's teeth as soon as any teeth are in
the mouth.

WindMark Club and Design House



Unveiled During 90th Celebration


Port St. Joe has parades and
fun galore in store to celebrate
Independence Day. Adding to the
revelry, WindMark Beach, the
Arvida planned community taking
shape on St. Joseph Bay, will inau-
gurate its brand new WindMark
Beach Club and Design House.
Everyone's invited to come tour the
Design House to pick up decorating
ideas and view the latest trends in
coastal home design.
Doubling as a neighborhood
meeting hall, the Beach Club,
designed by noted architect
Thomas Christ, is a two-story,
barn-like structure surrounded by
deep front and back porches like
they made them in the old days.
Tongue-and-groove cypress
flooring, whitewashed cypress
walls and bead-board wainscoting
enhance the beach cottage feeling
of the interior, as do the oversized,
louvered, breeze-capturing doors.
Recalling a bath house at summer
camp, the dressing areas are
equipped with showers and wooden
lockers and benches. The commu-
nity kitchen makes this a perfect
spot for receptions, celebrations
and get-togethers.
Most delightful of all is the
pool, a new take in neighborhood
pools. More like a swimming hole, it
is missing only a rope swing slung
from a tree. Where one would
expect the usual rectangular pool
surrounded by vertical gates and
rows of lounge chairs, here is a vir-
tual man-made lake, a free form
pond amid the dunes with a disap-
pearing edge at the beachside
entrance. The decking that curves
around the pool is a mixture of
beach sand, bits of shell and white
concrete that looks like rippled
sand by the ocean's edge.
Landscaped dunes dressed in
beach sunflowers, Indian blanket,
palms and other beach natives sur-
round the pool. Even the alu-
minum pool fence refuses to act out
of character, but is disguised as an
aging wood slat dune fence follow-
ing the contours of the land.
Open to the public on the 4th
of July, the WindMark Beach
Design House, designed by Gordon
Mock of Island Style Homes, spirit
of the WindMark Beach communi-
ty. Reminiscent of Old Florida
"cracker" style architecture, the
Design House is crowned by a tin
roof with windows upon windows.
"It's a view with a house
attached," said John Hendry, proj-


ect manager, WindMark Beach.
'The house offers spectacular views
from almost every angle."
The three bedroom, three and a
half bathroom house, with almost
1,500 square feet of covered porch-
es and decks, encourages an out-
door lifestyle. The main deck fea-
tures a Viking grill and a cable out-
let for outdoor television viewing
that vies for attention with the
deck-level views of magnificent St.
Joseph Bay.
The WindMark Beach Design
House is built in a split wing
design. The master bedroom is part
of the main living quarters, while
guest suites are connected by a
breezeway and multi-level decks.
Guests can enjoy the privacy of a
separate wing, and homeowners
can enjoy energy savings -the twor
wings have separate air condition-
ing units, so owners need only cool
the wings of the house that are in
use.
The Design House's finishing
touches were created and designed
by North Carolina's dynamic

THE SMART WAY TO LOOK AT HOME IMPROVEMENTS
By: Dee Mitchell
What home improvements really pay off when the time comes to sell your house?
That's an important question for any homeowner contemplating moving or
remodeling. And the only possible answer is a somewhat complicated one.
That answer starts with the fact that really major improvements room additions, total replacements of
kitchens and baths, etc., -- rarely pay off fully in the near term. It ends with the fact that small and relative-
ly inexpensive changes can pay off in a big way in making your home attractive to buyers if your decision
is to move now.
It's a simple fact, consistently confirmed across America over a very long period of time, that even the
most appropriate major improvements are unlikely to return their full cost if a house is sold within two or
three years.
Does that mean that major home improvements are always a bad idea? Absolutely not. It does mean,
though, that if your present house falls seriously short of meeting your family's needs you need to think twice
and think carefully before deciding to undertake a major renovation. Viewed strictly in investment terms,
major improvements rarely make as much sense as selling your present home and buying one that's care-
fully selected to provide you with what you want.
Even if you have a special and strong attachment to the house you're in and feel certain that you could
be happy in it for a long time if only it had more bedrooms and baths, for example, there are a few basic
rules that you ought to keep in mind.
Probably the most basic rule of all, in this regard, is the one that says you should never -unless you
absolutely don't care at all about eventual resale value improve a house to the point where its desired sales
price would be more than 20 percent higher than the most expensive of the other houses in the immediate
neighborhood.
Try to raise the value of your house too high, that is, and surrounding properties will pull it down.
Here are some other rules worth remembering:
Never rearrange the interior of your house in a way that reduces the total number of bedrooms to less
than three.
Never add a third bathroom to a two-bath house unless you don't care about ever recouping your
investment.
Swimming pools rarely return what you spend to install them. Ditto for sun rooms and finished base-
ments. .
If you decide to do what's usually the smart thing and move rather than improve, it's often the small-
er, relatively inexpensive improvements that turn out to be most worth doing.
The cost of replacing a discolored toilet bowl, making sure all the windows work or getting rid of dead
trees and shrubs in trivial compared with adding a bathroom, but such things can have a big and very pos-
itive impact on prospective buyers. A good broker can help you decide which expenditures make sense and
which don't, and can save you a lot of money in the process.

designer, Barbara N. Yergens, ASID.
Based on her coastal sensibilities
and love of Southern vernacular
design, Yergens has created a dis-
tinctive interior for this very special
home. Wainscoting and bead board
trim the walls, and juxtaposing tex-
tures fill the space to create a wel-
coming, warm interior.
'The Design House architecture
is magnificent," says Yergens. "but
I think the sinall details make it
truly memorable. We've used cus-
tom frog hardware in one of the
bathrooms and a bent willow head-
board in one of the guest-rooms."
"The color palette is a blend of
blue, green, and honey," continued
Yergens', The colors are reminis-
cent of the ocean, sky, and sea
grass covered dunes."

About WindMark Beach
WindMark Beach is a water-
front community designed for the
relaxed and casual way-of-life long
associated with Old Florida. Design
guidelines for homresite owners
reinforce the community's sense of
relaxation by encouraging spacious
screened porches, airy, internal
spaces, weather-resistant exterior
finishes, and a style that harks
back to Northwest Florida "cracker"
architecture. Community paths and
three community docks provide
access to the beach on St. Joseph
Bay, the focal point of the commu-
nity. St. Joseph Bay's natural beau-
ty is reflected in the landscaping
guidelines for WindMark Beach.
Indigenous, salt-tolerant shrubs
and trees are encouraged, while sod
and exotic plants are prohibited.
Homesites range from about a
quarter of an acre (with 95 feet of
beachfront) to more than three-
quarters of an acre, overlooking
Stillwater Preserve, the conserva-
tion area through which Stillwater
Creek flows. Underground power
and telecommunications, a munici-
pal water supply, and main sewer
serve all of the 110 homesites.
Community walkways wind
through Stillwater Preserve to the
beach. A beach-side, pool and
cabana with gathering, room and
outdoor grill and sun-deck will be
accessible to WindMark Beach resi-
dents. Through a special arrange-
ment with nearby Port St. Joe
Marina; WindMark Beach residents
will have access to three communi-
ty docks for temporary mooring, as
well as a full range of services
including covered boat storage, full-
time mooring, fishing charters and.
boat tours and fishing equipment.

Spotlight on Health:



Diabetes Mellitus ...


By Dr. Peter H. Obesso
The Greeks are credited with
the fatherhood of medicine and
with the first description of dia-
betes. The word comes. from the
Greek and Latin diabetes millitus
which means to urinate honey like
a siphon. Diabetes has existed


throughout the existence of
humanity, but only during the
.beginning of the 20th Century did
it begin to be understood and


treated, averting for the first time
the prognosis of early death.
Diabetes is caused by the lack
of or resistance to insulin. Insulin
helps glucose in the blood enter
the cells to produce energy for life
functions. When there is no
insulin or resistance to it, blood
sugar rises giving way to the dev-


stating consequences of diabetes.
These include heart disease, kid-
ney disease, blindness and vascu-
lar disease with gangrene of lower
extremeties..
Lack of insulin (diabetes 1)
requires the use of insulin for life.
It seems to be mediated by immu-
nity and heredity but this mecha-
nism is not well understood yet.
Although heredity also pays a
role in the development of insulin
resistance this development is also
influenced by our behavior.
Preventive measures can' be
undertaken to deal with the threat
of insulin resistance (diabetes II):
Do not be a couch potato.
Daily exercise, walking or pedaling


to the post office or grocery store
are good options.
Avoid your waistline ever
reaching 40 inches in circumfer-
ence. If it already does, bring it
back down to 40 inches or below.
See your doctor if your blood
pressure is over 140/90. Ask him
to check your blood sugar and
triglyceride levels.
Eat low glycemic carbohy-
drates instead of high glycemic
ones.
Memorize the following list:
High glycemic index foods
include maltose (beer) 110, glu-
cose 100, white bread 95, instant
potatoes 95, honey/jam 90, corn-'


flakes, popcorn 85, refined sugar
75, corn 70, beets 70, white rice
70, cookies 70, boiled potatoes 70,
white flour pasta 65, bananas 60,
raisins 60.
Low glycemic index foods
include whole rice 50, whole wheat
bread 50, whole wheat pasta 45,
fresh white beans 40, oatmeal 40,
whole rye bread 40, green peas 40,
whole cereals 35, dairy products
35, wild rice 35, fresh fruits 35,
lentils 30, chick peas 30, dried
beans 30, dried peas 30, dark
chocolate 22, fructose 20, soya 15,
green vegetables, less than 15.
Next week we will discuss obe-
sity. .

DELETO"

Guaranteed TO TRAP AND KILL Mosquitoes

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' arc most eff'c-
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 that emits and circulates a patented scent. This scent in hibit'
mosquitoes' ability to detect humans. Simply turnit 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 mosqutoes
by emitting carbon dioxide, heat, and a special mosquito attractant
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.

Happy Independence Day 4Q

- W^ftS


In the past
several
months, our
freedom and
our way of
life have been
severely tested. As a
direct response to
this, we replied,
"When the going gets
tough, the tough get
going!" The men and
women of this
great nation
quickly rose to the
challenge to preserve
and defend our
democracy. This
Fourth of July, we will
celebrate our country's


birthday. We will again
reaffirm the principles
upon which this country
was founded ... freedom
from tyranny, the right
to free speech, life,
liberty and the pursuit of
happiness, and many,
many others. Since the
first day we opened the
credit union doors, the
