First Look at


Marine Cove


Comm. Park

Ralph Rish approached Port St.
Joe city commissioners during their
Tuesday meeting with plans for
Marina Cove Commercial Park
tucked under his arm. He was
seeking their input and. approval
for the proposed concept and plan.
Marina Cove Commercial Park
will. consist of just under seven
acres of land between the marina
and Baltzell Avenue. Rish said the
current design calls for 42 lots to be
marketed ard will include infra-
structure and landscaping. He
brought up a few areas of concern
to the board starting with the need
to end one of what will be deemed
public roadways on city property
currently leased to the St. Joe
Company as part of the marina
lease and parking.
In order for the board to work
out absolution to the problem with

heavy with law volumes.
The decades dissolve as he
opens a pocketknife. the key piece
of evidence in his first.murder trial,
in 1954, the yellowed and weath-
ered evidence tag still attached,
with an inscription of congratula-
tions from the prosecutor he out-
dueled to prevent his client a trip to
death row.
Time moves backward as
Gaskin talks of returning from a
bombing mission over Germany
during World War II to find his com-
pany C.O., some actor named
Jimmy Stewart, his feet propped up
on Gaskin's bed, diving into the
goody box Gaskin's mother sent
with regularity, joking he'd heard
Gaskin's plane had gone down and
he didn't want the vittlesto go to
waste.
With a sparkle in his eye, his
voice steady, Gaskin returns in
time to the years when the liquor
agents were hardly his biggest fans,
his winning streak, using an ingen-
ious legal defense that was .never
toppled, keeping drinking' men's
libation on the market.
Speaking to Gaskin is like
watching an RKO newsreel, the
information articulated in quick
focused bursts, the result of a mind
that clearly remains sharp at 78
years young.
So it should be little surprise,
even taken for granted, that Gaskin
would be singled out, as he was
recently, by the Florida Bar for his
years of service as, well,
Wewahitchka's own attorney.
The Florida Bar, during its
recent state convention in Orlando,
honored Gaskin and 138 others for
being members for 50 years.
They were feted during a sump-
tuous luncheon at a swanky
Disney-area hotel, given certificates
and a silver plaque.
"It was an honor," Gaskin said.
"I even met some of the fellas from
my class (from law school)."
It's worth noting that graduat-
ing class numbered but 22.
It is further worth highlighting
that Gaskin was one of just two of
those 139 golden anniversary
lawyers still practicing.

State Deals with Dr. Ivers



Under Pre-Trial Intervention Record will be Clean in Six Months


by Tim Croft
Dr. Vincent Ivers will, hesitate
the next time a situation calls for a
samaritan.
When he explains to his seven-
and six-year-old sons about help-
ing the less fortunate, there'll be a
a pause in his thoughts, a clutch in
his throat.
That is his sentence.
In this case, though, they are
the only penalties he will face after
the doctor and prosecutors agreed
to a deal by which charges against
Ivers for abuse/neglect of a dis-
abled .adult will disappear if his
record remains unblemished for
the next six months.
On the eve of his felony trial,
and nearly a year to the date that
Ivers attempted to assist an elderly
man left in his care at Gulf Pines
Medical Center, the state and Ivers
entered into what is known as pre-
trial intervention.
Under the terms of the deal,
Ivers admits no wrongdoing and
the charges against him will be
removed from his permanent
record in six months.
"Pre-trial diversion is for cases
where the full weight of the law
should not apply," said assistant
state .attorney Alton Paulk. "I just
thought this was the fair thing to
do.
"You try to have the penalty fit
the crime," Paulk added.-
The penalty Ivers faced if con-
victed by a jury, Paulk continued,
would have likely included the loss
of his license to practice niedicine
and "the: community would have
been deprived of a respected physi-


cian."
"This was the fair result,"
Paulk said.
In Ivers' view, fair is a relative
term.
The past year has been an ago-
nizing trip to Hades for a man who
believed he was doing what he
could, all he could, for a disabled
senior dumped in his lap by a local
nursing home.
"I thought they would have
dropped this a year ago," Ivers said
while between patients at his Reid
Avenue Clinic. "I think I did every-
thing I could for this man. I went
beyond What an emergency room
doctor would."
In fact, Ivers and his attorney
John Daniel relished the opportu-
nity to go to trial. They had experts
coming from Tallahassee and
Orlando to testify that Ivers did
everything, and more; that would
be expected of an emergency room
doctor.
'Way beyond what an emer-
gency room doctor was required to'
do," Daniel said. "I was ready to try
and so was Ivers, but with a guar-
anteed dismissal with charges
dropped after six months, this was
a deal we could not refuse."
Ivers' odyssey began on July
19 of last year when a man ulti-
mately identified as Benjamin
Corona, 60, was transported to the
Gulf Pines emergency room by a
local nursing home.
Nursing home attendants told
verss that Corona, who had been at
the home for some 18 months, was
experiencing severe pain.
However, when hIers examined


Corona he found no legitimate rea-
s6oi to admit him. There are strict
criteria for admitting a patient into
a hospital.
SThe mania had'beeh disabled byS
a stroke. required a wheelchair, ate
little, but was otherwise not in dis-
Stress.
in particular, Ivers took issue
with the portrayal of Corona's con-
dition by media outlets from
Panama City.
"He was rot malnourished, he


did not have (bed sores), there was.
no evidence that he'd been
abused," Ivers said, noting that
medical records at Gull Pines. the
nursing home and Bay Medical
Center, where Corona ultimately
ended up, support his contention.
'There's nothing written an'y-
where that says anything like
that," Ivers continued, adding that
Corona was relatively mobile, could
move himself from bed to wheel-
chair and therefore 'hardly a


patient likely to develop bed sores.
"What (the news media is) por-
traying and the realityof the situa-
tion are completely different."
Most crucially, there was no
criteria for Ivers to,-legally or ethi-
cally, admit Corona to the hospital.
"It would have been so easy for
me to admit- him," Ivers said.
"Anything, if I could have, I would
have been glad to admit him.".
Which left the question of what
to do with Corona and here, Ivers
and his attorney John Daniel said,
is where the system failed Corona
and Ivers.
The nursing home refused to
take Corona' back..Repeated calls
to the Gulf County Sheriffs Office,
Life Management- and the U.S.
Immigration Service yielded no
assistance.
Daniel and -Ivers said the
GCSO's policy for homeless folks is
to drive them to the county line.
'"his was a total systems fail-
ure," Daniel said.
Ivers said, "There is no set-up
here to help (the homeless). This is
a total system failure.
"This will probably happen
again and we don't have a system
'in place to help people who have
fallen through the cracks. When
there are homeless people here,
what do we do?"
Ivers decided to take Corona to
Panama City, but not before taking
him home, feeding him a sandwich
and giving.him something to drink.
Ivers stopped by the Parkway
clinic he works' at in Panama City
and then .took Corona to the
'Rescue Mission, :which he knew
haid a free medical cliiic.
Ivers said he identified himself
at the Rescue Mission as being
from the Parkway Clinic and
there is only one in Panama City -
and that he gave Corona a wheel-
chair which was likely identified as
coming from Parkway.

David Carl Gaskin displays the weapon at the heart of the first mur-
der case he handled, back in 1954. The knife is wrapped in the original
evidence tag with a note of congratulations from the prosecutor after
Gaskin ultimately got the charges against his client reduced from first-
degree murder to manslaughter.


week.
Still working on wills, trusts,
probate and real estate, as he has
most of the past 45 years, since the
Public Defender's office was created
and he decided to end his criminal
practice.
"I enjoyed the criminal law for
five or six years," Gaskin noted,
"but the people who I represented
weren't millionaires. They were
working people. They paid me, but
a lot of times they had to pay in
installments, a little at a time."
The Public Defender's Office, he
figured, with its resources and
manpower, might serve such clients
better.
Nonetheless, he hated to give
up the criminal stuff.
"It put the drive in me," Gaskin
said. "You know you are dealing
with somebody's life. And the crim-
inal law is interesting. I missed it."
His first case, three months out
o law school, was a notorious rape
case. The evidence seemed sub-
stantial, the verdict a foregone con-
clusion on the streets.
Gaskin told his client, an


-employee of St. Joe Paper, to pack
his bags and be ready to get out of
Dodge after the trial because, tech-
nically the law, as it was at that
time, had not been broken, and
Gaskin was going to win.
Gaskin did. The man made
tracks for Georgia.
Gaskin also handled several
first-degree murder cases. None of
his clients was ever sentenced to
life or banished to death row.
"I've had my share of winnings,
more than my share," Gaskin said,
with humble pride. "I haven't had
too many losses."
He never lost with the beverage
agents. By interpreting a law per-
taining to custody issues into an
application on property rights, and
then writing a concise thorough
brief that he used time and again,
Gaskin won, he said, hundreds of
cases involving the possession and
transport of liquor.
"Some of the most memorable
cases I had involved alcohol,"
Gaskin said.
Back in the 1950s, all the

Gulf Supports Riverine Training
PO


Gulf commissioners feel it's
their patriotic duty to support
training of our armed services
when and where they can. During
a special called meeting of the
board last Thursday at noon, the
board passed a resolution that
offered the use of riverways in Gulf
County, if they are needed, for
riverine training.
This subject was broached
during the board's regular meeting
on July 9th, when Marilyn
Blackwell brought up an article
that was published in the Calhoun
Liberty Journal newspaper con-
cerning riverine training. She said
the Navy SEALs were using the
river for training and asked if the
board had been contacted about
using the river in Gulf County for
this purpose.
Commissioner Billy Traylor


was quick to respond, "No, but if
it's up to me I will support it (the
use of the river for riverine train-
ing)."
This didn't settle well with
Blackwell, who issued concerns
about possible damage to the natu-
ral environment of the river way.
Traylor explained that he felt it
was the board's patriotic duty to
support such training for these
men who are laying their lives on
the line to protect and defend us.
He followed up on that theme
by adding the resolution question
to items on the board's agenda for
Thursday's special meeting.
County Attorney Tim
McFarland read the resolution and
the board discussed its content
before the vote. The thrust of its
content is contained in the last
statement, "Now therefore, be it


resolved by the Board of Gulf
County Commissioners of Gulf
County, Florida that Gulf County,
Florida: Supports and encourages
riverine training activities by mem-
bers of the United States Armed
Forces along and upon the
Apalachicola River in Gulf County,
Florida."
Riverine trainingg is not new
along the Apalachicola River,
according to Logan Barbee,
Calhoun County Extension Agent
and a colonel in the Army
Reserves. Barbee said the river has
been used for such training for
many years, suggesting as many as
30 years.
"We just had a group of Navy
SEALs training here for 10 days...
Two weeks from now they will be in

Mexco Beach Needs



A Timout Chair
E
Editor's note: The Star's reporter Tim Croft has been covering Mexico show
Beach City Council meetings since joining our staff. I'm turning this col- singe
umn over to Tim to comment about those meetings to de
and i
I admit it. I waved the white flag. I surrendered. the
After almost three hours of nastiness, of ,personal attacks, of an on th
atmosphere all but devoid of civility, I called it quits.
I've covered the state Legislature for a chain of daily newspapers,
observing countless hours of contentious debate on the floor of the Flori-
da House and Senate.
I've survived legislative sessions that began at 8 a.m. and lasted well
into the evening with agreements, even on the rules of debate, as scarce
as palm trees in the arctic.
And watched committee meetings and public hearings devolve into
political versions of WWF steel-cage death matches.
But hindsight offers 20/20 vision on few, if any, more distasteful dis-
plays of political discourse as that which played out last week during the
regular monthly meeting of the Mexico Beach city council.
Or times when the need was more actute to run home for a shower.
The truly amazing story here, is that this circus in Mexico Beach,
which seems to have more rings than Elizabeth Taylor, hasn't worn down
more folks, forced more to wave the white flag in surrender or disgust.
The children in my wife's pre-K program are better behaved and have
a firmer grasp of civility and manners than some in Mexico Beach.
And it's time for those folks to grow up. -t
If petition drives, unsubstantiated accusations, personal attacks,
rumor-mongering and just general nastiness is forwarding the people's
business, that was a lesson missing in my high school Civics class.
It's politics National Enquirer-style. The politics of personal destruc-
tion gone wild. '
And why these folks can't just stroll out on the beach that cradles
their city, watch the waves roll in and comprehend the triviality, the sheer
Schildishness.of some of their behavior, is astounding.
There are a group of folks and there is little evidence they are any-
'thing m6-ri&han a minute minority --who are determined to hinder city
-T '-., operations by any means.-ecessary.
:They:-aimf to upst the .elective process by being truly upsetting,
whether by petition, accusation or rumor.
They toss it all at the wall and hope some sticks, no matter the stench.
S Then lure the television' stations and their journalism-lite approach
over every time they decide its time to crank, up the sideshow ; -...
S. And thus is spawned the perception- folks'are fed of Mexico Beach
that bofkids who can't playnice in the sandbox. '
There is sympathy in this corner for residents like Sandi Yarbrough
.,-:who express sadness and embarrassment about a.perception of Mexico
Beach shaped by folks who attest to love MIexico Beach buitseem to hate
the people in it. .
--. ._ :.Whodon'td care that good people.cai be:counted among the casualties.
Who have-turned confrifhess into a calling.
Who talk about wasteful spending'iy the city while conveniently for-
getting the taxpayer money to be spent addressing, to date, baseless
charges.
Who are outraged at the personal use of a city computer, the purchase
of a vehicle or boat for the city, but are blind to the outrage many feel for
the tens of thousands expended on a state auditor the time. money and '
energy consumed addressing petty agendas. :- .,
Such individuals generally fall into one of two categories: wanria-bes
and those who don't wanna-be because potshots are easier fired from the
cheap seats.
Maybe the resolution, to this little soap opera lies in the lessons from
my wife's work with the wee ones.
Pass and enforce an ordinance mandating pacifiers for the fit-pitchers. "
Maybe one for a timeout chair at all council meetings..
The bet here is that those are petitions likely.to find some signatures.

It Must Have Been anAdventuresome Time Back Then!


I HAVE JUST completed read-
ing a book that has been around
for years. In fact I used to sell them
in our office supply store way back
when I was chief honcho at The
Star.
The little book was written by
Louise Porter, a historian of Port
St. Joe, along with Mrs. Eunice,
Brinson and Charles Smith.
Mrs. Porter wrote the book,
after much research, and with the
input of Smith and Brinson, way
back in the 1970s.
I didn't pay much attention to
it then, because, didn't I know as
much about the history of Port St.
SJe as.she did?
..I thought. I did: but. I found out

The name of the book is The
Lives Of St. Joseph. The book, nat-
urally, is about Port St. Joe .
from the days of the French explor-
ers, to the English expeditions, to
the Spanish occupation, to its
becoming a part of the .Unitedk


ETAOIN SHRDLU ,


Written by Wesley Ramsey


States and. eventually, statehood.
Port St. Joe has been around
for a 1-o-o-o-ong time!

WAY BACK IN THE time of the
foreign ownership and explorers,
there were several forts built here
and on the tip of the peninsula that
leave no trace of their exact where-
abouts, and Mrs. Porter,was sort of
maybebe, "must have", and
"according to", about her facts dur-
ing this period.
The first settlement, by the
French, was established at about
the same time as New Orleans. It
must have been an adventuresome
time back then.


Mostly. the book dealt with old.
St. Joseph. beginning with its
establishment and the reason for
it..
I was gratified that the, author
didn't claim the old city. was
destroyed by a tidal wave.
The yellow fever got into the
town from a ship whose captain
was sick with the disease. As it
began to spread, the people pan-
icked and began to leave town to
get away from it. The people died
like flies, too.
Then, a couple of years later, a
Large hurricane hit the coast and
destroyed several of the hastily
built homes.


'. The people just filtered away,
after bankruptcy struck the new
railroad and the extensive invest-
ments businessmen had made in
the old city.

AT ONLY ONE TIME was the
city'completely deserted.
SWhen T. H. Stone brought his
Sturpentine operation to Port St. Joe
around 1903, there wasn't anyone
o-r anything here to greet him.
Only pine forests.
The McNeills had evidently
recently settled at Indian Pass,
because the book mentioned they
were the Stones' nearest neigh-
bors.
About 10 years- later, the
Apalachicola Northern Railroad
extended its line to Port St. Joe, to
take advantage of the naval stores
shippirig business. They also
served a large lumber mill which
was estAblished here at about the
same time.
Things were going along


smoothly until the great panic and
depression struck in 1929.
Everyone was bankrupt again.

I FOUND OUT that the Port
Inn was first built by the railroad to
serve as a hotel for the people who
came on their excursions to enjoy
the bay.
The Port Inn was built around
1918 and burned.in October, 1943.
It made a stupendous-fire, since it
was built of heart pine.' .
I saw this, and took a picture
of it, but I don't know where.it is
now.

MRS. PORTER'S BOOK is a
good read about- a long period of
time bof. things that happened in.
this vicinity.
For instance: Port St. Joe near-
ly became the capital of the new
state of Florida, but it was decided
to make the village of Tallahassee
capital, instead. .
The state sent a man out from


the village of Pensacola over the old
Spanish Trail [Hwy. 90 today] and
another man from St. Augustine.
Where they met was declared the
site of the capital-Tallahassee!
Just think; you Seminole fans
came close to just having to go
down the street to see them play!
Port St. Joe was definitely the
largest town in Florida for a while,
but it didn't last. And north Florida
was all there was to Florida during
those days. South Florida had only
Indians as its inhabitants.
Of course north Florida:towns,
of any size, were few and, far
between' There were the villages of
;Pensacola, Tallahassee, St. Augus-
tine, Apalachicola and the young
town of St. Joseph as well as a few
wide places in the trail.. .
It was 1930 before even a
paved road served the area.

County Seeks Emergency Funds for Lighthouse


by Tim Croft
The patient worsens by the
week. So county officials went look-
ing last week for more assistance
for the curative measures.
During a special meeting last
week, county commissioners unan-
imously approved applying for a
portion of state funds earmarked
by the Florida Legislature for
"emergency historic preservation
projects."
The Commission, acting at the
behest of the St. Joseph Historical
Society, has applied for a $250,000
grant from a pot of $3 million, the
money to be used to address imme-
diate concerns about the long-term


health of the Cape San Bias
Lighthouse and the keepers' quar-
ters affectionately known as
"Sleeping Beauty."
"This will help," said Charlotte
Pierce of the St. Joseph Historical
Society. "If there is a pot of money
out there, why not go for it."
That the pot even exists came
as somewhat of a surprise, even to
the folks at the Florida Department
of State and its Division of Historic
Preservation.
In this tight budget year, when
state funding streams in a variety
of areas dried up, historic preserva-
tion took a substantial hit.
It was not until the final days of


budget conferencing between the
House and Senate that any money
for historic preservation was set in
the black and white of the budget
document.
The legislature funded just
nine historic preservation projects,
at something around $3 million, far
below the dozens of projects and
$10-$12 million benchmark that
had become typical in recent years.
That included $300,000 for the
project to transform the Cape San
Bias Lighthouse and two keepers'
quarters into a park and museum.
But to the surprise of even
state historic preservation officials,
lawmakers also earmarked $3 mil-
lion for emergency historic preser-
vation, with the Secretary of State's
office responsible for determining
the eligibility of projects.
The deadline for application
was July 15.
Jenny Nash; spokeswoman for
the Secretary of State's office said
the request for the money did not
originate with that department.
The' money, she added, was
intended for "historic sites that
have not only significance to
Florida history but also tie in to
national history."
There are three main criteria,
Nash added: non-state financial
resources devoted to the project,
the endangerment to the historic
sites and properties and the his-
toric significance of the site or
property:
"The project possesses signifi-
cant national history beyond
Florida," Nash noted. "And we are
.looking for sites that are tied to
events that have great significance
in Florida history."
Preference will be given to proj-
ects in which there is at least a
two-to-one match in non-state
financial resources, whether actual
funding or in-kind contributions.
As outlined in a letter applying
for a portion of the funds, the coun-
ty, and the Historical Society, high-
lights how the lighthouse projects
dovetails with the state criteria.
History fairly oozes from the
lighthouse grounds.
Built in 1885 and relocated in
1919, the lighthouse's screw-pile
metal frame structure was a type
first used in Great Britain in the
early 19th century.
It is the last of four that since
1848 had marked one of Florida's
most 'dynamic and dangerous
Escapes and shoals.
The lighthouse contains the
only intact lens revolving clockwork
in Florida and one of the few in the.

U.S.
The plans for renovation envi-
sion a museum/park complex that
will be an educational tool, teach-
ing visitors voung and old about
the history _f the lighthouse, the
families that lived in the keepers'
quarters and the area's maritime
lifeblood.
It is hoped the lighthouse itself
can be rehabilitated for future re-
lighting.
As for non-state money, the
Historical Society has raised over
$66,000 for the project, with the
U.S. Air Force having contributed
some $450,000 in in-kind effort by
restoring one of the keepers' quar-
ters.
And while, the Historical
Society has secured a $300,000
special category historical grant
this year and applied for a similar
grant for next year, more help, will
be needed, and the sooner the bet-
ter as outlined by a recent report
from the architect hired for the
restoration project.
"Sleeping Beauty" is extremely
deteriorated and in need of exten-
sive, and immediate, repairs just to
stabilize the structure.
"If we don't go ahead and do
something she isn't going to be
there," Pierce said. "And that will

A report from architect Randy
Lewis earlier this year noted that
rust "bloom" on exterior steel sur-
faces has become more pro-
nounced by the month.
The exterior railing is also
steadily deteriorating and cracks
were observed in the bracing and
tie-down rod stanchions/brackets.
The estimated cost of renova-
tion to the two structures is some
$850,000, the letter from the coun-
ty to the state noted.


It also pointed out that the
county has been designated a
Rural Area of Critical Economic
Concern and a Rural Economic
Development Initiative community.
"Your designation of funds for
this project would enhance a
national landmark and make it
available to be enjoyed by tourists
who visit our area," the letter to
Secretary of State Glenda Hood
concludes.

on Monday the incident occurred
on Friday afternoon and left.
"There was nothing medically
wrong with this guy," Ivers said in
noting that Corona could get by
without medications until Monday.
Beside, as an expert was pre-
pared to testify at trial, confiden-
tiality laws prohibited Ivers from
discussing Corona's case with the
* mission folks nor could he legally
prescribe for Corona.
"The state knew they had a
weak case," Daniel said, adding
that he had been trying for most of
the past year to have the charges
dropped. "All the doctors involved,
including those at Bay Medical
Center, agreed the Rescue Mission
was the place for him."
By the following week, howev-
er, Ivers was arrested and charged
with a felony prison, probation
and the loss of his license to prac-
tice medicine staring him in the
face.
For Ivers, all that is only mar-
ginal solace for the ordeal of the
past year.
"You try to do the right thing
and I thinkjI was being royally
screwed," Ivers said. "Things took

Although Ivers potentially
faced five years in prison and a
$5;000 fine if convicted of a third-
degree felony, Paulk said Ivers
would likely have received proba-
tion and the loss of his medical
license.
'This'was a fair result because
there were no heavy sanctions,"
Paulk said. "We think we got his
attention, it's a deterrent in that
Way."
From Ivers' point of view, that
attention is manifested in the sec-
ond thoughts he'll have the next
time the situation arises that calls
for a good samaritan.
And in the conversations he's
had with his four young sons the'
past year, trying to explain to them
how trying to assist Corona could
send him to prison.
"My two older boys, they want

said. "It's hard to explain to a six-.

All For the Love of Trains

Gregg Mahlkov's Model Railroad Featured at Tallahassee Show


by Tim Croft
He has little memory of it, but
his parents could tell Gregg
Mahlkov about his early adoration
of railroads.
Living in an apartment that
overlooked a rail line in Rye, N.Y.,
Mahlkov found an instant connec-
tion to railroads while still an
infant.
"I could look out of my crib and
watch the trains," Mahlkov said.
"And when I got out of college I
went to work for the Pennsylvania
Railroad and except for 11 months
working for Uncle Sam, I worked
for railroads all my life."
The flame still burns, even in
retirement, as Mahlkov, of St. Joe
Beach, has, off. and on over 35
years, crafted a model railroad
complex that has, literally, to be
seen to be believed.
Mahlkov's layout is so impres-
sive that it will be one of the fea-
tured model railroads on display on
Saturday at the 2003 Tallahassee
Model Railroad Show and Sale.
In fact, flyers for the show dis-
tributed by the Big Bend Model
Railroad Association, give
Mahlkov's two-foot by four-foot lay-
out, a little under two acres to
scale, top billing.
The show isn't about money -
he is paid $30 which covers travel-
ing expenses or prestige or the
chance to sell his collection that
includes more than 230 rail cars,
including 30 different engines.
It is about none of that.

ish it I built that."
And while most of the rail cars


from Pg. 4
Mahlkov owns were purchased, sev-
eral sliding along the rails on a
recent afternoon were hand-crafted
by Mahlkov from wood and plastic.


To better carry his railroad lay-
out to shows, such as those in
Tallahassee, and Dothan, Ala.,
Mahlkov constructed what looks
like an old hi-fi cabinet.
The top lifts, a light glows and
another world is on display.
That world is another relic of a
bygone age, of a time when rail-
roads promised journeys beyond
the confines of home, to distant and
often exotic locales known only in
the imagination.
"Railroads are like the
steamship industry," Mahlkov said.
"It's the romance of faraway places.
"That romance, you see those
steam engines, you see those huge
wheels, there was just something
about them."
Time, however, and the air-
plane, overwhelmed the railroads.
Where it required more than 100
employees to operate a Pullman
train from New York to Chicago,
Mahlkov noted that just nine were
needed to operate a plane over the
same route.
Meanwhile, interest in model


trains and who didn't either own
or covet a set of Lionels when they
were young seems to have steadi-
ly grown.
One prominent magazine for
devotees of model trains boasts a
circulation over 200,000.
The Dothan show started at a
church and has out-grown that and
another venue, now taking place at.
the Peanut Festival grounds.
The Tallahassee show has gone
from the Elks Lodge to the North
Florida Fairgrounds.
The variety, the intricacies, the
number of rail cars available on the
market these days is something to
behold.

Commissioners seemed willing to
go forward with that process.
Rish also proposed that the
board accept 7.5 parking places per
lot as an acceptable number in the
development. Rish pointed out that
there are currently 2.9 parking
places per lot along Reid Avenue in
Port St. Joe. Rish explained that he
was selling commercial lots within

plan an acceptable number of park-

Concerned About Mobile
Barbecue
During a workshop session
held prior to the regular meeting
commissioners heard a proposal
from Curtis Beard to locate a
mobile barbecue business on prop-
erty along Highway 98 between
Fourth and Fifth Streets.
While commissioners seemed
to appreciate Beard's efforts and
understand his long-term desires to
build a restaurant and develop his
business, some of them were con-
cerned about the appearance of the
trailer in the downtown area and
the unfair advantage the business
would have in competition with
other local restaurant businesses.
The question never came to a
vote during the regular board meet-
ing.
IN OTHER BUSINESS
Discussed a request from .a


cable company (Three Palms
International) to make a proposal
for a feasibility study to locate a
new cable service in the city. The
board was open to additional
options for cable TV service.
Asked the city's attorney,
Russell Scholz, to review various
tree ordinances and see if a com-
mon sense ordinance to protect his-
tbric trees within the community
can be developed.
Looked at the possibility of
locating a 4-way stop sign at the
intersection of Garrison Avenue
and 20th Street. The majority of the
board seemed to favor increased
patrol of the area to reduce speed
for at least the time being.
Agreed to continue efforts to
attain grant dollars to follow
through with beautification plans

Wewa Adoption Supporting River Training


by Tim Croft
Tracing the words already
approved by the Gulf County
Commission, the Wewahitchka City
Council on Monday approved a res-
olution supporting troop training on
the Apalachicola River.
The city's resolution mirrored
the county's, which expressed sup-
port for training by U.S. Navy
SEALS, who have been using the
river for some training because it
offers an environment, particularly
swampy areas of Gulf County, simi-
lar to others around the world, such



Training

combat for their country," Barbee
went on to state as he stressed the
immediate need for a training site
and the practical application of the
skills honed during local training
sessions.
The SEALs and other elite mili-
tary groups have been using
Calhoun County as .home base for
riverine training and the site is
being considering for a special
forces training center, according to
news reports printed in The County
Record, a weekly newspaper located
in Calhoun County.
In an article published in that
paper Barbee states, "In the future,
economic opportunities could be
dramatic for us and the rural coun-
ties from Franklin up to Calhoun
and Liberty, (counties)."
Barbee stated during a phone
interview that the community has
.endorsed the project, along with
state and federal agencies involved
in environmental assessment. \
Gulf commissioners gave their
support to this project with a 4-1
vote, favoring the resolution.
Commissioner Nathan Peters Jr.
opposed the question at this time,
expressing a desire to know more
about the training and hear from
the training group before voting on
the question.
BEACH RAKE APPROVED
Anyone who has been to the
beach recently knows there is -a
grass problem. Gulf commissioners
took action a few years ago to get '
relief during the seaweed shedding
time of the year and purchased a
beach rake to keep the county's
beaches clean..
This has worked well until now.
The board has found itself in a bit of


as South America and Southeast
Asia.
The resolutions were, to an
extent, replies to a recent request to
conduct some live-fire training near
Sand Mountain.
City manager Don Minchew
noted that since the river is a state
resource governed in part by the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the
Navy really didn't need any local
approval to conduct the training.
However, the building of a per-
manent facility to operate from, as
has been proposed, could be benefi-



--from page 1

a bind since the existing rake broke'
down and they were unable to con-,
tinue cleaning the beach until new
parts arrived. They agreed to go out,
for an emergency bid to purchase
another beach rake so the county
would have a backup irr the future.
The board agreed to purchase
the new machine for $46,000 dur-
ing its special meeting Thursday.

cial in terms of the economics.
"You can't lose by supporting
them," Minchew said, "and you

could win by supporting them.
"Besides, if it may save one life
(of a soldier) down the road, have at
it."
(See related story in this issue
of The Star).
In other business during
Monday's meeting:
The council :held', a public
hearing, on proposed major land-use
changes in the city.
At the request of two citizens,
the map the council had approved
will be further amended.
Once amended, the city will
advertise the changes and hold
another, and final public hearing
before adopting the land-use
changes.
Approved an ordinance per-
taining, to. occupational business
licenses.
Essentially, the city carved out
two exemptions and determined it
would more aggressively enforce the


occupational license ordinance.
One exemption would allow
churches and 'civic groups to con-
duct two yard sales per year without
securing a license.
The other would permit holder
of occupational licenses to, if cir-
cumstances require, temporarily
relocate for a day or so within
the city without having to pay for
another license.
Other, than those exemptions
the occupational, licensing require-
ments remain the same.
"It's really to stop those who are
having a yard sale every week,"
Minchew said, noting such opera-
tions, and similar ones, at the IGA
and other locations."They are run-
ning a business really."
S The city has taken delivery on
its new, fire truck. The truck cost
$210,000, with the county agreeing
to foot half the bill in eight annual
installments.
'The equipment is coming in,"
Minchew said. "We are in the
process of equipping it out."

Mold A Male/Female Annual Program Taking Shape


by Tim Croft
To understand the underpin-
nings, the foundation, the motivation
that drive Project Mold-A-
Male/Female take a close look at
Maxine Gant.
Observe as she speaks about her
hopes for the young children, about
why she and her husband, Chester,
continue to drive themselves though
their bodies have long since told them
to slow down, to rest.
Watch Maxine Gant speak about
the kids, and Project Mold-A-
Male/Female comes into crystal focus.
"I worry about these children,"


Gaskin
counties that surrounded
County were dry. Gulf was noi
naturally, there were several e:
prising individuals in Gulf Co
who, shall we say, skirted the la
attempts to quench the thirst
those kind folks in Calhoun, Lib
Gadsden, Holmes and Leon court
Over and over, Gaskin w
pull out his brief, lay down his a
ment and win.
He remembered one time tr
ing down County Judge Fitzpat
out hunting near Wetappo Creek
George Core, in the woods to sig
order freeing some whiskey ile
confiscated.
"Every judge I came be
approved (his argument concern
the interpretation of property ri
law)," Gaskin said. "They appeal
several times and the appeals ju
approved it."
And then, with a sly twinkle
added, "You know it must have
a good law."
But some good things end
those surrounding counties eve
ally overturned their laws outla
alcohol.
"They all went and put me o
business," Gaskin said. 'There
good money in that business."
Gaskin, whose family has
roots in Calhoun and Gulf court
said he never aimed for the law
he entered college.
"My dad wanted me to be a
tor, but I said no," Gaskin
before pausing slightly. "I don't
blood.
"When I went to school I dec
I wanted to be a lawyer. I want(
be a professional man."


she said, the angst etched on her face.
"I worry about them day and night."
Project Mold-A-Male/Female will
hold its annual youth conference
about community concerns from July
31 through August 2.
The program is aimed at parents
and youths aged 7-17, agencies deal-
ing with youth and other interested
parties in the community.
All events during. the three-day
event will take place at the David
Jones Recreation Center or Zion
Baptist Church.
It is the 13th year, by the Gants'
recollection, that they have convened


their annual program, which mixes
workshops and presentations on
weighty subjects such as drug use and
teen pregnancy with lighter fare such
as a fashion show, pizza party and a
carnival.
The theme of this year's confer-
ence centers around choices and con-
sequences, about the decisions young
people, heck, people of all ages, make
and the baggage that comes with
unsound choices.
"I was talking to some high school
students and they were concerned
that too much was going on and no
one was paying attention," Maxine

His law class at the University of
Florida numbered 66 at the.start, but
the professor warned that only one in
three would survive the rigorous cur-
riculum.
Sure enough, exactly 22 gradu-
ated.
"It was hard to get into law
school but easy to get out," Gaskin
said.
Gaskin set up shop in the shop-
worn old Wewahitchka State Bank
building, where the restaurant
Swampy's is now located.
There was an elderly lawyer at
the time in town, but he soon moved
to Tallahassee.
Gaskin had Robert Moore, the
late county judge, as a partner for a
time, but other thai that it has been
Gaskin, alone, with no sign out front.
Eventually he moved to the new
Wewa State Bank, now BankTrust of
Florida, building
"I'm the best, the worst, the only"
attorney in Wewahitchka, Gaskin
said. "I've never hung out a shingle. If
people Wanted me to be their lawyer,
they could find me. And they did."
His being that one-horse in what'
was for many decades a one-horse
town was one of the career highlights
Gaskin noted to the Florida Bar upon
its honoring him for 50 years in the
Bar.
Another was Gaskin's leading
the entire 8th Air Force on its final
mission to Germany.

Gant said.
Too many kids, she said, are get-
ting mixed up with drugs and "flaunt"
it. Teen pregnancy is a nagging prob-
lem.
A disturbing trend has young men
who don't know how to tie a tie but
who measure status by the amount of
underwear exposed by drooping draw-
ers.
"Preparation for just living is lack-
ing," Maxine Gant said. "I'm angry
about the whole situation. It reflects a
lack of personal pride. It's dangerous
out there now."
Which is where choices become
an integer in the equation.
The first two days of the annual
conference have everything to do with
choices.
On the first day, attendees will
take a tour of the county Health
Department, with age-appropriate
workshops to follow on abstinence
from sex, manners and making
healthy choices in eating habits and
nutrition.
"Everything at the Health
Department is related to making good
choices," Maxine Gant explained. "And
making a choice to become a parent as
a teenager is setting yourself up for
failure."
The first day will end with a per-
formance by the gospel group, the New
Gulf Coast Singers.
The next day will be aimed educa-
tion, particularly scholarships, about
broadening horizons, peering beyond
high school to higher education.
There will also be a workshop ses-
sion for parents, explaining their role
in encouraging their children to think
large.
Representatives from eight differ-
ent state and local agencies will be on
hand to discuss options and address
questions.
The importance is two-fold.
"One, too many of our kids aren't
aware that somewhere down the line
they are going to have to do some-
thing," Maxine Gant said. "Second,
there is a need to make them aware
that they deserve it, they should have
it."
The Rev. Edward King of the
Jessie Ball du Pont Foundation, who
has been so instrumental in nurturing
North Port St. Joe and in turn Port St.
Joe itself, will also.be on hand.
A yearly highlight, the fashion
show will also be that second day of
the conference.
Project Mold-A-Male/Female was
midwived after the Gants attended a
black history presentation at a local
prison camp.
What they saw were a number of
minority men doing plumbing work,
electrical work, mechanical work, in
other Words paying work.
They could also speak well and
sing rapturously. .
"There were so many talented
black boys at that camp," phester
A,


Gant said. 'They were doing work you
could make a living at, instead of
doing it for free in jail.
"They were the boysvwe left out on
the streets doing drugs and doing so
many other terrible things. We
thought there had to be a way to
address that, to try to help them."
And more than a dozen years later
that mission continues. Their health
may not be the best, they don't move


as quickly as they once did, but the
Gants still reach the goal to try.
"We've just done the best we could
for those kids," Chester Gant said.

year's annual conference contact

Team Punchlist Wins Bay Point Tourney and More


Morris Palmer and the rest of
team Punchlist were pleased
beyond all measure to find out that
no blue marlin was weighed in dur-
ing the annual Bay Point Billfish
Tournament. This moved Morris'
173.4-pound tuna into a class of its
own, with prize money for the blue
marlin being shifted into the tuna
division.
When the tournament win-
nings were figured the tuna netted
a little over $700 per pound for the
Punchlist team as tournament
champions and Palmer as top
angler, earned $115,000 in tourna-
ment prize money and $9,500 in
optional entry money, for a total
purse of $124,500.
Palmer and the rest of the crew
started their 10 hour trip back to
the dock Saturday morning believ-
ing they had a good shot at winning
the tuna division first- place prize,
approximately $40,000.
"I called my wife, Terri, on the
satellite phone and she said it was.
her understanding a blue marlin.
had been weighed in," Palmer said
when asked if he knew they had
boated the potential tournament
winning fish.
The value of that fish multi-
plied about three fold after they got


to the docks and were unloading
the huge tuna.
"George Roberts looked over in
the boat and said, 'I think you have
the winning fish'," Palmer believed
him to be talking about the tuna
division, not realizing that the blue
marlin his wife had mentioned was
not large enough to be weighed and
no marlin had been scored.
Needless to say, team
Punchlist and Palmer took a differ-
ent view of their big fish as they
waited. for the final seconds to tick
off the official scale masters' clock.
Winning the Bay Point
Tournament had additional signifi-
cance to Palmer, since it qualified
him for the World Billfish
Championship (WBC) to be held in
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on
November 30.
Team Punchlist set a goal a lit-
tle over a year ago, when they
formed the fishing group, to send
at least one of the team members to
the WBC tournament. They have
already qualified team member
Michael Clayton for the WBC. In
fact, Clayton is currently No. 1 in
the Gulf Coast Division in WBC
points.
Palmer was the designated
crew's fisherman for the Bay Point

next day the Germans surrendered.
The next day I took a train to
London. It was a wild time."
It was during his tour with the
Air Force that then 19-year-old
Staff Sgt. GAskin first encountered
Stewart, who was the company's
commanding officer.
In that role, Stewart often flew.
in a P-47 over flight formations to,
for lack of another term, inspect his
troops.
On a particular day Stewart's
plane was flying directly at
Gaskin's and as he was trained,
when a plaie is flying directly at
you, fire tracers to warn, then fire
to kill:
Gaskin fired off some tracers
and the plane swerved away.
Back on the ground Gaskin
was summoned to see the CO.
Gaskin was quaking a bit and.
finally explained to an agitated
Stewart that he was only doing
what he was trained.
-Stewart said. 'Il.be damned,
they never told me that in flying
school'." Gaskin said with a laugh.
"He was a'good guy. He was a great
commanding officer."
The war endedtaskin eventu-
ally returned to his home and he


hasn't left.
He still lives in a house built in
1915 by Cecil Costin Sr.'s father
that, with the exception of a couple
of renovations, remains as it was
when he first moved in out of law
school.
The law has not stood still.
"It's changed tremendously,"
Gaskin said. "Rules have changed,
laws have changed. Judges don't
have a lot of choices these days.
"I enjoy the whole practice of
the law. I see so many attorneys
that rip people off, steal money. I
don't understand it."
And long after others have
retired, have moved to the beach or
some planned community, Gaskin
is still at it, long after even he
thought he'd be.
"When I started I said 25 years,
and I'll quit," Gaskin said. "Then it
was 30 years, then 35 years. Now
it's 50 years.
"I'm glad I didn't stop. I'm glad
I haven't stopped, yet. I just enjoy. I
like to be busy. I'll stop when the
mood hits me.
"People are good to me here.
They paid their bills. It might have
been in installments, but they
paid."


that each angler is on his own at
the WBC.
While both Clayton and Palmer
hope they will be the first anglers
from Port St. Joe to fish and win
the WBC, each of them also hopes
they are the one that brings back
the bragging rights.

Ponytails Heading to State Softball Playoffs July 17-23


The Wewahitchka Dixie League
Ponytails 12 and under fast pitch
softball team recently won their
third consecutive district 2 champi-
onship. Including this year, they
will have also played in three state
tournaments, won one state cham-
pionship and played in one world
series. This year, when they return
to Okeechobee for the state tourna-
ment beginning Thursday, July 17,
they will be seeking their second
straight state championship title.
Wewa 11, Liberty County 1
Wewa won their first game in
the tournament by the ten run rule
after a fine pitching performance
by Mandy Robbins (two innings)
and Misty Knobel (two innings).
Mandy Robbins struck out five,
gave up no hits nor runs. Misty
Knobel struck out five, gave up one
hit and one run. Jessica. Burns,
Misty Knobel, Chelsey Pettis, Sam
Rich, and Mandy Robbins had key
hits.
Wewa 1, P.S.J. 0
In one of the classic pitching
match ups of the year, .Port St.
Joe's Kayla Minger was matched up
against Wewa's Samantha Rich.
Kayla Minger struck out eleven bat-
ters, gave up only two hits, one by
Samantha Rich and one by Mandy
Robbins.
However, Samantha Rich
struck out fifteen batters and gave
up. no runs, pitching a no hitter.
The only run was scored by Meagan
Lincoln after walking, taking sec-
ond and third on passed balls, and
scoring on a ground. ball by
Heather Strange.
The game was on the line in the
last inning when P.S.J. had a run-
ner, Jessie'Moore,.on third base by
a walk, a ground ball and a passed
ball. Kayla Minger hit a long fly ball
to right field that was barely foul
that would have tied up the game
and given PSJ a runner in scoring
position. However, she then walked
and Samantha Rich struck out'the
next two hitters to hold the lead
and the win.


which Samantha Rich made a run-
ning catch inches above the
ground. The next batter struck out,
however an error allowed the game
to continue. Misty Knobel then
struck out the next batter to end
the game and secure the champi-
onship for Wewa. 'Misty Knobel

team will travel to State Playoffs in Okeechobee July 17-23.


Grand Ridge 6, Wewa 5
Definitely the low point of the
tournament was a loss to Grand
Ridge. After taking the lead 4-0, a
string of walks and errors allowed
Grand Ridge to take the lead. Wewa
had an opportunity in the fifth and
sixth innings to tie the game but
,mistakes on the base paths ended
any threat.
Misty Knobel and Meagan
Lincoln both had two hits and
Mandy Robbins and Erica Whitfield
had one hit.

panionship, nursing home visits,

munication skills.

constructive activities.
*Gives insight into the lives of
others and teaches valuable life

make a difference in someone's
life."

CAUSES OF

SBAD BREATH
Few people realize that recurring bad
S" breath may be a warning sign of disease. A
vide range of systemic diseases, including dia-

M nied by bad breath. When.the disease is treat-
i ed or controlled, bad breath usually disap-
It' F, C pears. .
Food particles and plaque on your teeth
can cause bad breath, but the cure is simple. Clean your teeth. The
odors of strong food, such as garlic and onions are the worst culprits.
They get into your blood stream and are exhaled through your lungs.
Alcohol, whether you drink one drink or many, goes right into
your blood stream and is immediately apparent on your breath.
Smoking; particularly cigar smoking, is also known to taint the breath.
One more good reason to stop smoking.
Untreated periodontal (gum) disease is a common cause of bad
breath. In fact, it is one warning symptoms. Treatment, followed by a
good home hygiene can freshen your breath and save your teeth.

SAlthough currently inactive, the Port of Port St. Joe could
become part of a dynamic economic engine that is powering
Florida's


Puttingthe


For example, consider the total impact that the ports of Florida
have on both the local and state economies:
*Almost 265,000 jobs are attributable to the current activities of Florida's sea-
ports, and that number will rise to 466,000 by 2005*
*Florida's seaports currently facilitate $6.6 billion in statewide annual earnings,
and that number is expected to grow to $11.1 billion by 2005*
*Florida's seaports currently facilitate $22.8 billion in annual business sales, and
is expected to rise to $36.8 billion by 2005*
*Florida's seaports currently generate $836.2 million in annual state and local
taxes, and that is expected to rise to $1.6 billion by 2005*
With the current expansion of Latin America and the Caribbean nations'
economies, Florida is the natural trade partner for these regions, and Port St. Joe is well-
positioned geographically to capture its fair share of that trade.
Every phase of the creation, operation and expansion of a seaport will positively
impactthe local community with construction jobs, port operations positions, and sec-
ondary employment to support those activities. Large-scale capital investment for facili-
ties construction within the port will also support the expansion of the local economy,
with jobs and spending.
The Port Authority of Port St. Joe is working hard to re-establish Port St. Joe as
an active seaport. With your support, we can accomplish that goal. Call your state and
local representatives and tell them you want to put the "port" back in Port St. Joe.

The Star, Port St. Joe, FL Thursday, July 17, 2003 Page 3B


The flounder is much more
than an exciting sports fish or a
delicious food fish. This amazing
creature from the sea goes through
an incredible transformation that
takes it from a normal appearing
fish at birth to a round, flat fish in
adulthood. These interesting fish
prefer to make their habitat at the
bottom of most warm or moderate
oceans but can be found in waters
throughout the world including
some arctic areas. They are mostly
found in the shallow waters along
the coast where they manage to
blend so well with their surround-
ings that they are hard to see.
Depending on the species, some
flounder are only inches long while
others, such as the halibut reach
several feet in length.
Flounder are found inshore on
sandy or mud bottoms, often rang-
ing into tidal creeks. Flounder are
often gigged around sand bars and
near-shore rocky reefs. Southern
flounders range in size from 1 to
18' pounds. Other common names
for flounder are fluke, flat-fish,
flattie, doormat, mat.
The flounder hatches into
* usual fish form, but its right eye
migrates over to left side early in
life. It is a bottom dweller, spawns
offshore, and -migrates back into
the shallows during the Spring and
Summer months and feeds on
crustaceans and small fishes.
The flounder is an ambush
feeder and will wait patiently for
something to eat that comes by its
ambush spot. Running tidal water
in small cuts or rocky areas are,
excellent places to find flounder.
They often times bury themselves
under sand or silt as they wait for
food to enter their area. Prime gig-
ging season is)during the "flounder
run" in the Spring.
Gigging is a popular method for
taking flounder. Some 'fishermen
cruise the shallows-in a special.flat
bottom boat, complete with under
water bright lights, and gig the
flounder with a (multi pronged) gig
as it lays waiting for its dinner.
There are four flounder fami-'
lies, and close to one hundred
species. The most distinguishing
characteristic of the flounder is the
shape of their bodies which it is
believed has evolved over the years
from a more perch like bod: Shape
to the e-ter-rii'l\- round and ilat-
tened body of a bottom dweller. One'i
of the more interesting aspects of
this type of evolution is that it
begins when the flounder has just
4 hatched and continues until adult-
hood is reached.
The flounder is left-eyed, and is
most readily separated from its
close relatives by the lack of promi-
nent ocellated spots on the body. It
does possess ,numerous diffuse
dark spots and blotches on the
olive-brown eyed side and fins. but
these are not conspicuous aiid tend
to disappear in large fish.- The
species is very.tolerant of a wide
range in water temperature (50 to -,
90F) and salinity (0 to 36 ppt). In.
fact, southern flounders .are fre-
quentlh found in brackish and even
fresh waters, where salinities flue- .,c
tuate from 0 to 20 ppt. No other
flounder inhabiting the east'.coast
of the United States is regularly
encountered in this type of environ-
ment.
In most species of, flounder
spawning takes place during the
warmer months of the year. Most
species migrate to deeper waters for
their chosen spawning site. After
spawning, the eggs are deposited '
by the females of the species where
they float in the water aided by a
tiny oil bubble in each egg. With
some species they remain near the
bottoms within'an area of vegeta-

El


tion, while in other species the eggs
rise to the shallow surface. Once
they hatch the tiny larvae have the
appearance of most other fish with
the tiny eyes on either side of its
head. The young fish will drift along
in the water freely feeding on
plankton and tiny crustaceans.
When & Where to Gig Flounder
Although flounder can be
gigged in almost any portion of the
shoreline, it is more often produc-
tive to gig around jetties, oyster
reefs or sandbars that extend from
shore into the bay. Flounder do not
swim continuously, so they tend to
accumulate in such places in their
search for food. During the spring,
gigging anglers should work the
edges of channels, such as the
[CW, as the fish are moving back
into the marsh areas from the
ocean.
Floundering is best during the
migration from April to August.
Multitudes of flounders can often
be seen in and around the shallow


areas during this period, and gig-
gers gliding through the shallows
in a small boat will often gig their
limit in a few hours.
During the spring and summer
the best catches with gigs are made
in the back water areas. Spots with
cord.grass along the shoreline are
good producers, and a bottom that
is slightly silty or muddy generally
is better than a hard sand bottom.
The mouths of small bayous and
sloughs often yield flounder.
Since water clarity is very
important to the success of any
floundering trip, floundering
should be done on calm nights with
an in-coming tide. When gigging on
windy nights, anglers should try to
work small protected shorelines.
SThe best catches are made dur-
ing an incoming tide because the
water is flowing from the ocean and
is clear allowing for greater visibili-
ty. Fishermen motor upstream to a
starting point, shut off the motor
and then quietly pole downstream,


Flounder: A Florida Favorite


using the tide to propel them along.
They like to start about an hour
before dead-low tide. This is
because there is the most beach
exposed, and the flounder will
actually relocate itself and move up
as the tide rises. For this reason,
they often "track" a flounder. This
means, as the flounder relocates
with the tide, 't will leave "tracks"
as it shuffles along through the
sand to stay in shallow water. One
can see its "bedding spots" and can
often follow the "tracks", which
have a directional pattern, right to
the flounder! However, do not hesi-
tate to flounder on an outgoing
tide. During a falling tide trying far-
. their offshore in water one to two
feet deep or around offshore sand-
bars is often more. productive. Try
to gig on'dark nights as opposed to
moonlit nights. This is because
flounder can see the gigger during
a full moon.
Stingrays also frequent the
shallows at night. They are flat arid
can sometimes be mistaken for a
flounder or stepped on by the
unwary.'The inexperienced floun-
der fisher should make certain of
what he has gigged before retriev'-


ing it. If in doubt, simply hold the
creature on the bottom with the gig
and wait for the water to settle
before attempting to retrieve your
catch. A multi-pronged gig is help-
ful in such cases, because the
catch can be lifted unassisted from
the bottom.

Bailey Returns From


Multinational Exercise


The crew on board guided mnis-
sile frigate USS Boone, homeported
in Mayport, recently returned from
the waters of South America and
the Caribbean following their par-
ticipation in UNITAS 2003, a multi-
national exercise designed to
strengthen force interoperability in
support of-U.S. policy of'engage-
ment in'South America. Petty

on board USS Boone who con-
tributed to the exercise's success.
The U.S. Navy, Coast Guard
and Marine Corps worked along-
side naval forces from Columbia,
the Dominican Republic, Panama,
Peru, the Netherlands and
Venezuela -to conduct more than
150 training evolutions in four*


months.
"UNITAS is a great way for
sailors to connect with other coun-
tries. It also reminds you of how

Specialist (CRS) designation.
The course covered the imple-
mentation of specific ideas to add
value to and ensure the delivery of
exceptional customer service both

maintaining plumbing and piping
systems and for looking after safe-
ty. and survival equipment.
Throughout the deployment,
the task force maintained a high
operational tempo and was con-
stantly challenged with changing
wartime scenarios. Bailey said
UNITAS offered him a chance to
test his job skills. "I helped repair
vital equipment necessary to the
mission, including the air condi-
tioning unit which keeps impor-
tant computer equipment run-
ning," said Bailey.
Between flight operations and
communication drills, Bailey had
the opportunity to explore some of
the surrounding countries. "The
most interesting experience for me
was when we picked up a group of
Ecuadorian immigrants. We
Helped them out when they were
lost. Some sailors on board,gave
them, Spanish Bibles, which
seemed to help their morale," said
Bailey.
The U.S. Navy has participated,
in UNITAS for more than four
decades, making it a cornerstone

strengthens the bond between the

friends for the love and support
shown to them during the time of
the loss of their beloved husband,

you for your kindnesses in our
behalf. No thoughtful act went
unnoticed. Each call, visit, card,
gift of time and food, each memory
shared, every flower sent, each
contribution made to help us
through our time of need is grate-
fully acknowledged. With deep sin-


cerity we .give you our heartfelt
thanks.
Naturally, we, grieve for our
loss. Your support and our strong
belief in an after life have made this
hurt bearable. We know that he is
happy and in a far better place
than we are. We grieve for our loss,
but know that we will see and be
with him in the eternities. May God
bless each of you for the good
deeds you do. James 1:27

Blood Supply at Critical Level, Red



Cross Seeking Help from Donors


A slowdown in blood donations
during the summer months is
nothing new. Summer vacations
and irregular routines prevent reg-
ular donors from giving.
"We're asking everyone who
can donate to call 1-800-GIVE LIFE
to schedule an appointment at a
donor center, or to find c it where
the nearest blood drive is," said
Mark Beddingfield, COO of the
American Red Cross Alabama and
Central Gulf Coast Region.
"Anyone can call that number to
set up a blood drive, also."
In the Port St Joe area, citi-
zens may donate Wednesday, July
30th at the Gulf County
Courthouse from noon until 5:00
pm.
Donors must be at least 17
years old, weigh at least 110 lbs.
and be in general good health.
Apparently hospital blood
inventory is low, also. Beddingfield
said, "Our hospital clients are call-
ing us for more blood products,
plus those hospitals which don't
regularly call us for supply are call-
ing now. It's at a critical inventory
level."
Red blood cells, which are used
in transfusions, have a shelf life of
only 42 days. Another blood com-
ponent, platelets, is used in the
treatment of cancer patients. Its
shelf life is just five days.
Life-saving platelet inventories
are also low for the same reason as
blood; donors have been unavail-
able and on vacation. The region's
hospital patients and the Red
Cross still need blood donations.
The Red Cross asks that every
donor consider donating at least
three times a year.
"Blood donors can give every
56 days (8 weeks). We are asking
people to donate blood today and
sponsor a blood drive where they
work, play or worship, before we

get in dire straits in this Region,"
Beddingfield said.
To schedule a blood donation
please call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE, or
sponsor a blood drive please call
(850) 217-9435.
Red Cross Blood Facts:
In the United States, a blood
transfusion is needed about every
two seconds.
Approximately 4.2 percent of
those between the ages of 18 and
75 donate blood in the United
States.
Average donors give 1.6 times
per year.
Approximately 5 percent of the
eligible population in the United
States donates blood.
The Red Cross supplies 45 per-
cent of the nation's blood supply.
While persons 65 years and
older compose 13 percent of the
population, they use 25 percent of
all blood units transfused.
Each.blood donation may help
save the life of two or more people.
Blood may be transfused as
whole blood or as one of its compo-
nents. Because patients seldom
require all of the components of
whole blood, it makes sense to
transfuse only that portion needed
by the patient for a specific condi-
tion or disease.
Blood components include red
blood cells, plasma, platelets and
cryoprecipitated antihemophilic
factor (AHF). Up to four compo-
nents may be derived from one unit
of blood.
One donation could help a
patient with acute blood loss
resulting from trauma or surgery
(red blood cells), an individual with
leukemia (platelets) and someone
who has had a liver transplant
(plasma).
Patients who benefit most from
transfusions of red blood cells
include those with chronic anemia


resulting from disorders such as
kidney failure, malignancies or gas-
trointestinal bleeding and those
with acute blood loss resulting
from trauma or surgery.
A liver transplant patient, on
average, will need six to 10 units of
red blood cells, 20 units of plasma
and one to two units of apheresis
platelets.
A kidney transplant patient, oh
average, will need one to two units
of red blood cells.
A heart transplant patient, on
average, will need four to six units
of red blood cells.
An adult open-heart surgery
patient, on average, will need two to
six units of red blood cells, two to
four units of plasma and one to two
units of apheresis platelets.
A newborn open-heart surgery,
on average, will need one to four
units of red blood cells, one to two
units of plasma, and one to four
units of platelets.
Prostate cancer surgery may
require two to four units of red

Have You Always
Wanted to Learn
to Dance?
The United States Amateur
Ballroom Dancers Association
(USABDA) wants to establish a
Chapter especially for "beginner"
social or recreational ballroom
dancers in the Panama City area. If
enough interest is expressed,. a
local steering committee will be
formed to guide the project and
enroll members. A special welcome
*will be extended to beginner
dancers; and arrangements will be
made to make "low-cost" weekly
dance lessons available for them.
Everyone will learn and dance
together Membership will be open
to singles, as well as couples.
Beginners of all ages will be wel-
come.
Local chapters sponsor month-
ly social dances for members and
the general public. Typically, each
dance consists of a free one-hour
dance lesson, followed by three
hours of general dancing as well as
dance demonstrations. "The pro-
gram includes mixers and line
dances.' Chapters also promote

Progress Energy Ordered to Refund up


to $60 Million to Florida Consumers


Attorney General Charlie Crist
recently praised the Public Service
Commission's unanimous decision
ordering Progress Energy to pay up
to $60 million in refunds to Florida
consumers over the next four
years.
The 5-0 'vote came after a
lengthy hearing in which Crist
argued strongly that the utility
company be required to pay $23
million in refunds this year, in
accordance with an agreement
between the company and the
state.
'This great ruling gives the
customers what they deserve and
what they were promised," said
Crist. "We are grateful to the com-
mission for doing the right thing.
(This) result provides an exclama-
tion point to fie wonderful career
of Jack Shreve, who has represent-
ed the public with great distinction
for nearly three decades. The skill-
ful advocacy of Solicitor General
Chris Kise was also instrumental in
* bringing about this outstanding
result."
'This is a critical victory for


Floridians, who are customers of
Progress Energy," said Jack
Shreve, former Public Counsel. "It
was very important for the Attorney
General to join the case on behalf
of the public. (This) successful out-
come is in large part due to the
efforts of the Attorney General."
The case involved an agree-
ment signed last year in which
Progress Energy agreed to return a
certain percentage of company rev-
denues. The first refunds were due
in March. Using the formula
included in the settlement agree-
ment, the state determined that the
company should pay $23 million in
refunds to Florida customers.
However, the company argued it
should pay less than $5 million
under its interpretation of the
agreement. Attorney General Crist
filed a motion to intervene in the
case on May 14, arguing that
Progress Energy should live up to
its commitment to pay Florida con-
sumers the refunds they are due.'
The PSC's unanimous decision
requires Progress Energy to pay an
additional $18 million in current-


year refunds, and up to $14 million full refund amount was then-
per year in each of the next three Public Counsel Shreve, who argued
years, depending on the company's on behalf of consumers throughout
revenues.
Joining Crist in arguing for the the history of the case.


Host an Exchange Student


and Join in the Adventure


School's starting soon, but it's
not too late to open your heart and
home. Hosting a high school
exchange student is like bringing
the world to your doorstep.
The Foundation for
Intercultural Travel (F.I.T.) is still
matching international students
with host families across the U.S.
Families of all "types" are eligible to
host, retired couples to single par-
ent families. Not'only two parent
families have enjoyed hosting an
international son or daughter.
Students will be arriving very
soon. They will -bring their own
spending money for clothes, enter-
tainment and other expenses. They
have their own medical insurance
as well. But most of all, they bring


their intent desire to learn our cul-
ture, while sharing theirs with you.
It's a relationship that will last a
lifetime.
Host families agree to provide
room and board for their student,
and to include them as a member
of their family. There are one
semester, as well as academic
school year students. All students
speak English. If you want to but
can't host right now, how about
joining the team of local area repre-
sentatives?
For more information, without
obligation, please call the
Foundation for Intercultural
Travel, toll free at 877-439-7862
and ask for Maryann.

port loans and payments; estab-
lishment of allotments, yields and
marketing quotas; farmer loans;
and conservation programs; incen-
tive, indemnity, and disaster pay-
ments for some commodities; and
other farm disaster assistance.
The county committee, is an
important part of the service deliv-
ery of the USDA. They would like to'
include more farmers in non-tradi-
tional operations and people whose
livelihoods depend, on farming.

by Dr, Peter Obesso
There are several diseases that
involve the heart. The disease that
people identify as heart disease and
in fact is responsible for the' death
of one out of two Americans over
the age of 65 is ischemic coronary
artery disease.
Ischemia is derived from two
Greek words. Ischein that means to
hold back and haima that means
blood. Decreased blood supply to
any organ usually causes pain.
Chest pain is an important symp-
tom in coronary artery disease.
The heart is basically a unique
type of muscle magnificently well
designed to work as a pump. The
coronaries supply the heart muscle
with blood. The heart works so
srmootb. and efliciently tat if well
takenn care of it \\ill work uninter-
Srupted for 100 years or more. Even
with all our technology and modern
materials we are still far from
S duplicating it. This is why we have
to rely on human heart transplan-
tation when all other treatment
options, for heart disease have been
exhausted.
There are a number of risk fac-
tors for coronary artery disease,
These include a positive family his-
tory, blood lipid (fat) abnormalities,
hypertension (high blood pressure),
diabetes, physical inactivity and
cigarette smoking.
Heart disease ranks third as a
leading cause of death among the
25 to 44 year old population of the
United States with 17,000 deaths
per year.


It ranks second among the 45
to 64 year old population with
99,000 deaths per year.
It is the number one cause of
death for those that are 65 years of
age or older with 607,000 deaths
per year.
Do these statistics show an
inexorable and inevitable progres-
sion towards death from heart dis-
ease?
The answer is NOI
The medical community is
hard at work improving treatment
techniques for heart disease. But
the area for most improvement lies
with the individual:
1) Stay active. Exercise rou+
tinely. Half an hour of walking per
day will do wonders for your, heart.
:.. 2):Eat moQderate portions: Steer,
away from foods made with refined
sugars, starches, flours, and cere-
als.
3) Reduce stress by utilizing
relaxation techniques: Like medita-
tion, praying leading, writing, yoga,
and exercise.
4) Keep your weight, choles-
terol levels and blood pressure
under control.
5) Avoid tobacco.
6) Take one baby aspirin a day
if not contraindicated.
7) Take vitamins E and B com-
plex and foods that provide ade-
quate supplies of these vitamins
such as vegetables and fruits.
8) Consult your personal
physician before initiating any of
these indications.
