Gov. Jeb Bush
S Awards Rural
Grant to Spur
Governor Jeb Bush announced
last Thursda Gulf County has
been awarded a $22,750 Rural
Feasibility Grant from the Rural
Infrastructure Fund to assist the
county to conduct engineering and
environmental studies necessary to
bid on a U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers sand removal contract
worth more than $4 million.
"This grant encourages the type
of innovation aid entrepreneurship
increasingly necessary by local gov-
ernments as demands on dwindling
public resources multiply," said
Governor Bush. "This is particu-
larly true for rural counties, and we
are pleased to support Gulf County
in its efforts to work with the Corps
to create local jobs."
Gulf County initially
approached thel Corps with its pro-
posal because it wanted to ensure
the jobs created by this project
woiuldi be made available to local
workers. Until approached by the
county, the Corps had not planned
on utilizing local contractors or
Workers. If successful in the bid
application, the county expects to
Sbid out the administration and
removal work to local contractors-
creating 35 new jobs.
The Corps has historically
removed sand from the navigation-
al channel of the Apalachicola River
and placed the dredged material on
the banks of the river in Gulf
County. The disposal of the
dredged material has caused a sub-
stantial accumulation of sand: In
order to prevent further deteriora-
tion of the shoreline, protect habi-
'tats, and ensure safety, the U.S.
Congress appropriated almost $5
million to the Corps for sand

a win/win situation for the state
and Gulf County," said Don Butler,

CCC Group Will Bring Down Last Remaining Warehouse
by Tim Croft
Turns out there was still a lit-
tle more to raze after all.
CCC Group, the Texas-based
company charged with demolishing
the mill site, has had the scope of
its work extended in the past week.
The company entered into a
change-order with Smurfit-Stone
Container Inc., to bring down the
last remaining warehouse, located
at the back of the mill site and
leased to the Port Authority
through June of next year.
"Everything will be gone" when
the warehouse comes down, said
John Griffith, co-division manager
for CCC Group.
As part of the agreement under
the Brownsfield program, CCC,
Group will also construct a reteri-
tion pond and drainage canal.
The work will add about two
months to CCC Group's labors.
Appearing on schedule to finish in
-late August, the company will now
be on the' mill site through
September and possibly into
That is still well ahead of the
original schedule, which had the
mill demolition completed by
January of next year.

ule," Griffith said.

the warehouse runs through early
June of next year, though Griffith

Mexico Beach Administrator
Survives Termination Efforts
by Tim Croft
It was ugly.
For more than an hour on Tuesday night, the monthly meeting of the
Mexico Beach City Council disintegrated into a free-for-all that sprawled
from pointed to personal to unseemly and back again.
In the end, city administrator Paul Sabiston survived an effort by.
Councilman Chuck Risinger to have Sabiston fired when Risinger's motion
died for lack of a second.
It perished, in part it seemed, due to the input irom a standing-room-
only crowd, the majority of which had apparently heard enough of the
backbiting and rumor-mongering that has plagued the council for over a
year, spawned several complaints to the Florida Elections Commission
pertaining to last year's municipal elections arid a state audit, which the
city must fund.
They were folks tired of having the only.news out of Mexico Beach -
though the issue of Sabiston's tenure was not on the agenda, the meeting
attracted not one but both Panama City television stations for the first
time in, at least, more than a year center around the mud-slinging emit-
ted from a pocket of dissenters within the city.
'This is a sad day for Mexico Beach," said resident Larry Turner, who
said city business has too often been hijacked by "dumpster divers always
looking for what's ,wrong with the city instead of what's right about the
He was disheartened, Turner added, that the cabal of detractors of top
city officials, specifically Mayor Kathy Kingsland and Sabiston, had found
"a mouthpiece on the council" in Risinger.
Risinger acknowledged he was "a lone voice in the dark and that's OK"
but said Sabiston's actions had demonstrated "unabashed contempt for
our ordinances" and went forward with a motion to have Sabiston's
employment with the city terminated immediately.
However, his colleagues on the council, in comments made moments
before, made it clear that they agreed with several residents who implored
the council to move on to real business, and therefore Risinger's motion
would go nowhere.
The genesis of this latest chapter in what has been an ongoing soap
opera at Mexico Beach dates to March.
At that time, a city employee was found to have used his city comput-
er to, in Risinger's words, "view inappropriate material."
A police investigation uncovered no illegal activity and Sabiston repri-
manded the employee, including an alert that further use of city property
for personal use would result in termination.
Council members, according to their statements, did not learn of the
incident until early June.
Sabiston contended his actions were fully within the boundaries of
personnel policies approved by the council last November, which were
intended to supercede all previous policies and ordinances.
At the time those policies were
unanimously passed, at least one (See Mex. Beach on Page 6A)

Cathy Takes A Chance ...
Celebrating Independence Day is always a special occasion.
This year was no exception-except for one slight inconvenience, a
whole bunch of rain!
In spite of the rain and some delays the shows went on and
every one had a great time. Wewahitchka was the only local com-
munity which got the opportunity to fire off its fireworks without
any delay on Friday evening, July 4th.
Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe did manage to get in some of
the days planned activities in and around the showers and rain
storms that persisted throughout the day. With storms treating
as evening approached, both communities opted to postpone
their fireworks until Saturday evening. That decision turned out
to be a good call with Saturday bringing favorable weather and
things going off without a hitch.
The big story of the week was Port St. Joe celebrating its 90th
Birthday with what was planned to be week long festivities. Need-
less to say, many of those plans were altered, postponed, or can-
celed because of the weather.
Wednesday evening's kick-off event for the 90th celebration:
was moved from Frank Pate Park to the comfort and dry quarters'
of First Baptist Church.
It was during Wednesday's festivities that Representative Bev
Kilmer may have coined the phrase of the week when she said, "I'
can't think of a more fitting place to be celebrating St. Joe's 90th!
than in God's house."
In'my opinion, Bev proved herself to this community when
she was elected to serve in the Florida house back in 1998. That's'
a year we all can quickly associate, as we remember it was
August of 98 when the word was finalized that the paper mill was
closed for good.
That was Rep. Kilmer's welcome to Gulf County and she
quickly proved the old adage true when life serves you lemons,
Mayor Frank Pate may have best stated what I'm attempting
to write about Bev, "If it hadn't been for you I don't know where
we would be.", ,.: .
It was not only fitting that the first night of the celebration be'
held in God's house, but also, that one the community's most
recent champions had the honor of .helping to open the cere-
I was a few minutes late, as were most of the folks who'
attended the city commission meeting before going to the festivi-
ties, but when I walked in the community choir was singing
"Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory". As we look back over the five
years since the announcement of the mill closure, I think we can
say this community, county and area has truly been blessed.
The peoplee and communities who organized, planned, and
-:- carried ouf the host of activities that took place in this area over
the week of the 4fitdeserve a gigantic 'THANK YOU" for their
It may have been wet, but.therain couldn't dampen our spir-
its as we look back on all of the blessings we have to be thankful
for in this county and within our communities.
I was talking with George Duren the other day and he was
making a point about what visitors to our area find special. Basi-
cally what he surmised was, it's not what we don't have (alluding
to some of the state's tourist traps), but what we do have which
are some of God's special places and some very special people.
Jesse and Jessica have, been
dating since before Noah got, the
Word about the rain. I know Jess
has never professed much interest
in anyone else. He was born, got
through little league and high
school, and went looking for Jessi-
ca. As near as I can tell, not know-
Ing anymore than I know about
future daughter-in-laws. Jessica
leels the same way.
No one was surpnsed when
they set a July wedding date. As a
couple they lit together as well as
their names indicate.
As a matter of fact most of us
figured it was about time. I was
tired of those long distance phone
bills and Jess having to "check to
see if it was alright" before he came
home from school for a visit. And
when he did' get home and we
wanted to go out, he'd have to call
and let her kn-iow he "wa-s going to
be out of pocket for a while" It \wa\

So. to -,ay that i am happy
about this whole thing is pretty
much an understatement. I have
met Jessica's folks. I have had
breakfast in the house where her
father grew up. Miss Marie has
whipped six or eight of those extra
big cat-head biscuits on me. Miss
Virginia reads my stories. Listen,
her paternal grandfather was a
hog farmer It can't get much
better than that!
Opportunities to 'get in" with a
family like this don't roll around
too often! I have been extra nice to
the prospective bride. I have
agreed to near 'bout every out-
landish idea Cathy has come up
with surrounding the rehearsal
dinner. I have painted two bed-
rooms and re-carpeted the den. I
have been practicing my hog call-
I don't,want anything slipping
in that might upset this deal. I'm
looking forward to. that wedding
picture in the paper where the
happy bride and groom are stand-
ing down at the altar with the can-
dles shimmering in the back-

years ago. The great aunts and

were looking the new, young
prospect over. I thought Aunt Kay

about Little Jane. The brother who

Fourth of July Celebrations
Blazed Among the Rain Showers
by Tim Croft
It was wet and occasionally
wild, but thanks to some deter-
mined local folks and visitors who
took downpours with a grain of
salt, the Fourth of July, and Port
St. Joe's 90th birthday, came off as
festive as could be.
A few events had to be can-
celled in Port St. Joe, particularly
the parade, and others were moved.
Fireworks, at least the formal
kind, had to be postponed to let the
skies wring out all- the rain.
But if the measuring stick for a
holiday weekend is some safe fun,
and full tourist accommodations,
then the area punched the ticket,
even with all Mother Nature had to
"We had some glitches along
the way, but I think people who
came had a good time," said Carol
Davis, assistant city clerk for Port
St. Joe. The parade was about the
only thing that didn't happen, in
some form or fashion.

winners, Savannah Owens and
'The people of St. Joe all pulled
together. The city employees
worked above and beyond to move,
things and make them happen."
While the downtown area was
to be the center ring in the birthday

Chateau and the Centennial
Building served as stand-ins.
Nearly every event took place.

Changes at Ed Ball Wildlife Area
Should Benefit Local Hunters
by Tim Croft
When the ball gets kicked, call
That, with pun intact, is rough-
ly what has happened in recent
months with the Ed Ball Wildlife
As the state overhauls its
wildlife management area (WMA)
system, The St. Joe C .., which
owns the Ed Ball Wildlife
Management Area, has opened a
path to partnership with local
hunters to keep the 56,000 acre
tract a local resource.
In basic terms, the company
hopes to soon enter into lease
agreements with newly-created
local hunt clubs to allow use of Ed
Ball for both dog and still hunters.
"I'd like to figure out a way for
the people of Gulf County so they
could still go out there and hunt,"
said St. Joe Timberland president
Clay Smallwood. "I feel very strong-
ly that local people ought to have a
place to go to recreate."
Smallwood has already had
preliminary discussions with local
hunting stakeholders about the cre-
ation of the hunting clubs and leas-
es for the Ed Ball land.
Smallwood said the clubs have
identified officers and outlined their
organizations, but bylaws, govern-
ing bodies, dues and other essen-
tials still must be established.
No leases have been entered
into. Smallwood said he will wait for
the local hunt clubs "to get their
ducks in a row" before proceeding.
In broad strokes, the changes
would have little impact on hunting,
at Ed Ball.
Half, or the north end of the
parcel, would be designated for dog
hunting; half, or the south end, for
The hunt clubs would be
required to keep the property gated
and the gate locked and remove
garbage and debris, Smallwood
The changes at Ed Ball, said
Henry Cabbage of the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), are one result
of a trend which began back in the
As private landowners have
removed their land from the WMA
program, where they essentially
were paid "peanuts" by the state,
funding for the WMA program has t
"It wasn't a lot of money we
were getting," Smallwood said of St.
Joe's participation in the program.
"We were doing it as a public service
more than anything."
Once paying millions to main-
tain public hunting lands, the state
WMA program had been reduced in
funding to virtually "zero" as the
amount of acreage in the program
fell, Cabbage said.
The Legislature approved some
funding for the WMA program again'
this year, but Gov. Jeb Bush, who'
did not include the funding in his
proposed budget, vetoed' tle appro-
priation, citing other priorities in a
That, in turn, compelled the
FWC to revamp the wildlife manage-
ment system, eliminating specific
designations and creating WMAs of
all public lands.
A select few tracts of public,
hunting lands remain open to those
purchasing a $25 permit, or Stamp.
Others will become user-pay
areas, where hunters must pay
substantially more, typically in the
hundreds of dollars, based on a for-
mula similar to that by which
landowners were paid by the state
under the WMA program.
Essentially, that formula bases
fees on the number of man-use
days per acre per year, multiplied to
reach, the amount the private
landowner wishes to paid under a
"We still have the largest sys-
tem of public hunting lands in the
nation," Cabbage noted.
Smallwood pointed out that The
St. Joe Co., had, over the years,

been one of the biggest, if not the
biggest, participant in the state
WMA system, at one point leasing
as much as 130,000-140,000 acres
under the program.
With state lease money drying
up, however, the timing seemed
perfect, Smallwood said, to leave
An overwhelming reason:
insurance. State-leased lands carry
with them sovereign immunity lim-
its, which would impact and hold
down any potential litigation
awards in the event of an accident.
"Back in January it looked like
funding would not be put into the
WMA program and it looked like the
right time to quit this program,"

Butler said, if all goes well, the
road section could be placed on
the three to five year plan with
FDOT for a long term fix.. The like-.
.ly scenarios would be an elevated
roadway or bridge along the area.
Smallwood explained, the insur-
ance responsibility would be shifted
from the company to the hunt clubs
and their members.
Additionally, hunt clubs would
be more likely to engage in the sort
of wildlife management practices
that are conducive to protection
and growth of deer and turkey pop-
ulations as well as the habitat, a
plus for the company and hunters

"The Preacher's Boys"-Barry Hand's Newest Play
By David Adlerstein
Those who went to the Dixie
Theatre Saturday night expecting
the gospel stage play to be present-
ed would be filled with the over-
whelming joyous emotion of a feel-
good Holy Ghost spirit revival, had
another thing coming.
The central character in the
show, the Rev. Bruce Brown, a cler-
He has since left that field,
although his younger sister, Alissa,
works as a corrections officer at the
Franklin Work Camp. She played
Muh, the boys' grandmother, who
stepped in to raise the boys after
her daughter, Rose (Tabora Hill),
took to running the streets, bounc-
ing in a leopardskin leotard
between party girl and prostitute,
and not quite back again.
Barry Hand as the Rev. Bruce Brown Together with Tony
Williams as his son Keith.
gyman who returns to the wife and
two sons he abandoned 17 years
earlier, is for the most part the vil-
lain of the piece.
The character most embodying
the divine power of forgiveness,
Brown's son Keith, is dying of
With the exception of the
Reverend Brown's ministerial col-
lar, which he wears throughout the
show, there was little if any reli-
gious symbolism, and few, if any at
all, references to Jesus or the Bible
: in, "'Th., Preacher's Boys."
But by the. time the curt~ai
closed on the full house, the dra-
matic power of Apalachicola native
Barry Hand's newest and most
ambitious stage-play was some-
thing all the people could say an
uncomfortable amen to.
."Forgive somebody," said
Hand, in his remarks following the
.show's encbre. "Take the time out
and forgive somebody."
Hand appeared in the show as
Brown, whose effort to reconcile
with his troubled family is greeted
by a relentless spilling of guts by
the people he deserted.
His eldest son Reggie, (Matt
Troupe), is besieged by his baby's
momma, Jazziniqua (Francesca
Adams), who keeps showing up to
lecture him on his responsibility to
support his child, played by a dark-
skinned plastic doll in a carrier.
Reggie does drugs, doesn't hold
a job, lives off his mother and does-
n't want to do unto his child what'
his father hath done unto him.
In a haunting duet sung with
the younger brother Keith (Tony
Williams), the sons sing "He Wasn't
There," of the pain of not having a
father in their life. Hand's lyrics,
and the music he wrote together
with Jarel Winfield oh
the keyboards, were inspirited
by his work for eight years in the
prison system as a corrections offi-
"Being there, and seeing so
many young boys coming in crip-
pled of so many things life had to
offer them, one of the main things
they had to tell me is 'My father
was not there'," said Hand, who,
studied criminal justice at Gulf
Coast Community College.
"I found out that (being a cor-
rectionis officer) was not my call in
life," said Hand, who works at the
Gulf County landfill but has his
sights set on realizing the possibili-
ties in his two production compa-
nies, KingdomWorks, for gospel
theatre, and Restoration Records,
for gospel music.
"It (playwriting) is something
that I have always done but I have
just found out this year that this is
one of the things I have been called
to do," said Hand. "It is something
that I just like doing, but it is: in
me. Because.it is in.me,,, it, has; to
* come out of me."
Hand wrote his first play as a
sophomore at Apalachicola High
School, where he graduated in
1987. He had authored three plays
"Dead at 16," "Shackles" and
"When the Morning Comes" since
moving west to Bay and Gulf coun-
ties, and currently lives in
Wewahitchka with his wife, the for-
mer Lisa Bowers, and his four chil-
dren, Kalisa, 18, Courtney, 17,
Blake, 13, and Brandon, 11.
"None (have been) of this mag-
nitude. This is the biggest produc-
tion of them all, definitely the
biggest production I have done to
date," he said.
'The show is gutwrenching, in
its humor as well as its unflinch-
ing, unsoftened look at the self-
defeating behaviors battering the
"These are the issues that the
African-American family are hit the
hardest with and we don't talk
about them," said Hand, son of
Bryant and Annie Hand. "We don't
talk about them. We just live them
month after month, day after day.
Our kids keep going to prison and
the women are having the babies

and the grandmothers keep raising
"I believe if the church com-
munity can get a hold of this, it is
the church that can start the heal-
ing process," said Hand. 'That is
where the gospel stage play comes
in. It is secular because we don't
just shove Jesus down someone's
throat but it has a gospel overtone
because the solutions and'healing
have to come from somewhere.
"I want to say it is a Sunday
morning sermon on stage, or a
gospel song on stage," he said.
"When people look back and are
ready for that, I want people to say
it is a gospel play.,
"I could have gone with proto-
col and had the preacher be the
good guy. Even though this guy is
in shirt and tie now and he is a
preacher, he has .issues himself.
How can he get up and preach to a
congregation about being a great
father, knowing what his situation
is?" said Hand. "Even though we
know Jesus is the ultimate answer,
we still have to deal with so much.
It's our responsibility to deal with
the generational curses."
Hand addresses these curses
in a song sung by Reggie and
Jazziniqua, and in a third original
song, Nurse Mary (Ebony Williams),
who is caring for Keith in his last
days, sings "You Can Make It."
Hand also created two other
numbers, "Everything's Gonna To
Be All Right," which is the
rearrangement of a traditional
gospel song, and "I Need You,"
whose. words: and music were writ-
ten by Hezekiah Walker."

Written.in 2002, Hand began
casting for the show in late
January. "Most of them are people
that I met when I first came to
Panama City 16 years ago and they
went their own way," he said. "I
knew them and I knew of their tal-
ents. I asked myself 'Who could I
get to make their characters come
to life?' and they came to mind. I
got on the phone, they gave it a
shot and here we are."

Kilmer Sets Unprecedented
Fundraising Pace In Race
Preliminary figures indicate
that. State Rep. Bev Kilmer (R-
Quincy), who just 10 weeks ago
announced her campaign to rep-
resent Florida's 2nd congression-
al district, will report having
raised over $210,000, and having
more than $200,000 cash-on-
hand, during the Federal
Election, Commission's (FEC)
second quarter which closed
June 30th. The FEC requires
candidates for federal office to
file quarterly campaign finance
reports and the report Kilmer will
file by July 15th covers the peri-
od of April 1 June 30, 2003.
Sixteen months before the
2004 election, Kilmer has already
raised over 3 1/2 times the total
.amount spent by the Republican
candidate in 2002 and 2000 and
she's already raised 73% of the
total amount spent by the
Republican in 1996 in just her
first quarter of fundraising.
Money raised by Republican
candidates in FL-02 over the
years is as follows: 2004 Rep.

Counting the Creepy Critters on
St. Vincent Island Refuge
by Tim Croft
Joe Collins' voice has the mis-
chievous lilt of an adult who never
quite completely let go of child-
A few years into retirement,

The kind that made the young
girls scream, "Yuck!" The sort that

"I have continued my childhood

guffaw. 'And I've loved every

Collins has lugged his passion,
his research on St. Vincent Island.
"We are marking which species we
find, how many we find and where."
Which, of course, begs one
question. For crying out loud, why?

pelling argument. In all of the ani-

The answer is reptiles and

to offer in way of a counter.

University of Kansas, where he
remains a professor emeritus.
None of which interrupted his
lifelong love affair with reptiles and
"All of the projects that you say
you are going to do when you retire,
I am doing those," Cdllins said from
his office in Lawrence, Ks.
His post-retirement travels car-
ried him, at one point to Florida,
and the stretch of earth known as
the Forgotten Coast, but that is
another story entirely.
His research at St. Vincent, to
date, has been productive as a petri
dish in an incubator.
"We wanted to confirm the
species that had been confirmed
and discover new species," Collins
said. "We have discovered a few and Id
we are working toward more.
'"We have found 51 kinds of
toads, snakes, alligators; reptiles.
We are piling data onto data and
some young students will have
wonderful projects in the future
based on our data."
The value of such projects, "

Since the closure of the paper mill, a major question facing our community has been
how to best replace the jobs and benefits that have been lost. Speculation about future develop-
rent of the mill property has ranged from residential/retail to a deepwater seaport, and many
combinations between. The Port St. Joe Port Authority has been meeting with representatives
of St. Joe Company, Smurfit-Stone and the City to create a vision for the long-term well-being
of our community. It is our desire to provide a stable and balanced economy utilizing the
resources available and thus create good paying jobs for our citizens. Needless to say, the Port
Authority believes that a thriving, deepwater seaport can, and should be, the centerpiece of that
In an effort to provide the community with information concerning the positive impact
that an operating seaport can have, we will be producing a series of articles covering many
aspects of port development, economic impact and examples of other communities benefiting
from their ports. Future articles will explain job creation and, the types of jobs that a port will
bring, current and future cargo opportunities, cruise ship potential, and the deepwater/inland
waterway connection at Port St.,Joe. Also explained will be how a port can attract other busi-
nesses and manufacturers, possible industrial park development relating to the port, channel
deepening needs, new recreational opportunities on port property, and how a port can be a
good neighbor to its community.
There are 14 deepwater ports in Florida, and Gulf County is fortunate to have, one of
them. The opportunity to capitalize on this asset will only come around once. It is the goal of
the Port Authority to insure the opportunity is not lost and to work diligently with other political
and corporate entities to ensure that our community will be proud of how this is accomplished.
Insuring that our children will have a future here and have good job opportunities will be the
measure of our success in attaining that goal.

Answers to Real Estate questions

HOW TO SPOT A GOOD BUY By: Ellen Allemore
Beauty is in the eye of-the beholder, particularly when it comes to buying a home. Features that attract one
home-buyer may repel another..However, the one feature of interest to every home-buyer is price. Getting the
most home for your money is paramount. The real problem is figuring out whether that fixer-upper on one street
is a better buy than the home in next-to-new condition two blocks away. That's why knowing what to look for
before you buy can save you time, energy and money down the line.
The first step is,figuring out what kind of house you need. A good buy is only a good buy if it meets your cur-
rent and future living requirements. Before shopping for a home, decide how much space you and your family
require. How many bedrooms, bathrooms? Is a family room necessary? Do you need a layout that will accom-
mddate a lot of entertaining? Do you prefer a spacious or compact work space in the kitchen? If you have small
children, can the house easily be child roofed?
Evaluate the front and back yards. Is there enough space to accommodate your children? Do you want a park-
like or garden setting? Do you enjoy yard workand gardening, or do you want a low-maintenance yard? Take
into-cpnsideration the cdst.of extensive landscaping and upkeep.
Ne ri dei-.r n.;r,- ..j :k :..k ;; required to make the house you are considering livable. Make an honest
a::,e::,-ri,,- c f .,,r ,r .1 .,lt.l.l.: H:,- much work are you willing to do or pay someone else to do? Do you have
basic decorating, carpentry acd plumbing skills? If you plan to earn as you go, make sure you have accurately
determined what you are getting into. Ask an experienced friend, family member or your real estate agent for
their opinion, and be sure to consider how much remodeling inconvenience the rest of the family can handle.
Unless you are ready and able to tackle a major remodel, look for a house or condominium that needs only
cosmetic improvements. These include painting, wallpapering and replacing items like flooring, window treat-.
ments, bathroom and kitchen fixtures, light fixtures, cabinet and interior door hardware and appliances.
Remember that even these simple changes can be costly~ if.you have to make many of them.
Beware of improvements that seem easy enough at first glance buy may turn into major headaches and require
a lot of money once you've moved in. Remodeled kitchens and bathrooms, changes to the floor plan, room addi-
tions and redesigned landscaping are examples of seemingly minor changes that can easily eat away the money
you thought you saved by selecting a so-called "bargain-priced" home. Make sure major systems in the house
are in good working condition. Your agent can arrange to have a professional inspector determine whether the
electrical wiring and any room additions are to code. Local utilities often offer free or low-cost inspections to tell
you if the house is energy-efficient.
Look for a house with universally popular selling points. If you're impressed, the next buyer down the line is
bound to be too. For example, a roomy, modern easy-to-clean kitchen is the best selling point a home can have.
A house with onl, oie bathroom is less desirable than a house with two or more. Many buyers expect at least
three bedroois, ~ith a master bedroom that offers a feeling of privacy. Lots of storage space and closets, espe-
cially walk-in closets, will be a real selling point. Family rooms or "great rooms" also are desirable. On closer
examination;a house that looks like a bargain may lack some of these key features.
Don't forget the old adage: location, location, location. Unless you're looking for a fixer-upper, the house
should be in a condition that is comparable to other homes in the neighborhood. Avoid buying the biggest or fan-
ciest home on the block. Consider the amount of traffic or noise. Homes located in a quiet area away from a
busy street will command a higher price. Make sure the schools in your district have a reputation for quality edu-
cation and safety. Nearby supermarkets, gas stations, restaurants and theaters also will make a location more
Good community facilities also add appeal; pools, athletic fields, community centers, libraries and hospitals all
add to a neighborhood's value and desirability. Transportation needs also should be considered. Consider the cost
of living in a home. It's important to consider not only purchase price but the monthly cost of living in a home.

Reader Enjoys The Star Online
Hi, my name is Latonia
Williams. I was born in Port St. Joe
in 1968. I'm a graduate of PSJHS
class of 1986. I was glad to see the
history of Port St. Joe's (in last
week's) 90th anniversary (story).
My grandmothers, the late
Alma Bryant and Ethel Griffin,
both told those stories to me when
I was a little girl. I currently live in
California and it's so wonderful to
be able to look at The Star on the
internet and keep up with what's
going on and just see the amazing
growth and, boy, has it grown And
last but not least, I loved the article
about my cousin Dr. David
Langston. Keep up the good work!
Looking forward to seeing more pic-
tures on the growth.

The U.S. Air Force has part-
nered with Gulf Power and the
National Wild Turkey Federation
for the largest Energy for Wildlife
project attempted in history.
Eglin AFB encompasses
464,000 acres, of which 280,000 is
open to public recreation, including
hunting. It boasts one of the largest
Eastern wild turkey populations in
the Florida panhandle. It also has
1,400 acres of utility right-of-way
(ROW) that is similar in appearance
to the legendary "Song of My
South" briar patch due to the thick,
tangled vegetation that has grown
unchecked for years and is unus-
able for most wildlife species.
"It took a couple of years and a
lot of money to get this restoration
project off the ground," NWTF
Florida Chapter President Bill
"But, it will all be worth it when
Eglin has forty-odd miles of food
plots planted on it."
The project ,is being funded
through a three-year, $60,000
pledge from the NWTF Florida Wild
Turkey Super Fund with an addi-
tional $120,000 from Gulf Power.
This will pay for the materials and
labor to remove the dense under-
brush from the ROW, and to
restore native grasses that offer
food to wildlife.
NWTF biologist Luke Lewis
said that the project would take
several years due to the amount of
time that the ROWs have been per-
mitted to grow unchecked, and
because of the size and diversity of
'The area has a lot of cypress
swamps in it that break up the
land and make it excellent habitat
for all manner of wildlife," Lewis

much more accessible food
resource habitat, so an already
good turkey hunting area can only
