Arizona Chemical Takes Downtime



Inventory, Energy Cost Factors In Brief Production Shutdown


by Tim Croft
In an effort to reduce bulging
inventories and energy bills, the
Arizona Chemical plant in Port St.
Joe will shut down for roughly a
10-day period, company officials
announced.
The plant will not operate
between August 4 and August 10,
said plant manager- Randy
Brockman, adding that there will
be a couple of days added to either
side of that window as equipment
is shut down and then started back
up..
For safety and maintenance
reasons, the plant will be fully-
staffed during the cease in opera-
tions, Brockman said, though
some 40 employees, or just under
50 percent of the 95-person work
force will be impacted.
"We understand the impact
this announcement will have on
the affected team members,"'
Brockman said.
Impacted employees will be
able to take unused vacation time
and they will be able to file for
unemployment benefits.
By filing during the week of the
downtime, employees would be eli-
gible for benefits for'that week,
should the plant, for whatever rea-
son, be forced to shutdown in the
next 12 months.
The company will have repre-
sentatives available to assist
employees in completing inem-
ployment benefit forms.
And company officials in
Jacksonville emphasized that this


was a brief outage, not the initial
step in closing the plant perma-
nently, as has been 'ground
through the rumor mill repeatedly
since the closing of the paper mill
across the highway.
'This is a brief down time,"
said Alison Abernathy, manager for
global communications with
Arizona Chemical, which is a divi-
sion of International Paper. "It is
riot a prelude to anything."


Randy Brockman
Brockman informed union
leaders and in'turn the plant's staff
of the pending downtime about 101
days ago.
The factors behind the down
time, company officials, said could
be found in national economic


trend's.
As industries that use Arizona
Chemical's array of rosins and oils,
particularly "hot melt" which is
used for products such as packag-
ing. and plywood, have experienced
slowdowns, Arizona Chemical has
experienced a build-up of invento-
ry.
"The economy we are in right
now, it's in a different state" than
two, three, five years ago,
Brockman noted.
"I wish our. economy was
stronger," Brockman said. 'That
has a bearing on our customers."
He pointed, in particular, to
the domestic auto industry, which
has seen such a build-up of m\nen-
tory that they are offering' con-
sumers zero percent financing.
'The automotive industry is a
bellwether" of the economy,
Brockman said.
Abernathy also cited rising
energy costs required to operate
the plant, particularly in the dog
days of summer, as another factor
in briefly halting operations.
Brockman emphasized that
the- down time was just that and
nothing more.
"The term shutdown has a cer-
tain connotation, but this is not a
prelude to anything," Brockman
said.
"This is a not a permanent
shutdown. This is a time when our
equipment is down so we can bring
some inventory back ii line."

County

Commission

Sets Tentative

Millage Rates
During special budget sessions
held last week Gulf County com-
missioners unanimously agreed to
set tentative millage rates at 6.5286
mills. This is the same rate as last
year,' but because of an increase in
county property values will amount
to an increase of 18.06%.in ad val-
orem taxes raised if the board
elects to hold at this millage rate.
The commission set public
hearings on he proposed budget
numbers for Wednesday,
September 9th and Tuesday,
September 15th.


School Board Formally Adopts


Tentative Budget for 2003-'04


Sby Tim Croft
During a special' meeting ti
Tuesday, the Gulf County School
Board formally adopted its budget
for the 2003-2004 school year.
The budget, which will be final-
ized in September, totals just over
$14 million when all local, state
and federal funding sources are
combined.
The budget also includes a rise
in the village rate,' from 6.8750


last year to 7.1330 for the 2003-
2004 fiscal year.
That is an increase of slightly'
more than a quarter of a mill,
A mill ,represents $1 for every'
$1:,000 of assessed value in taxable
property.
The quarter mill rise is almost
entirely focused on capital outlay.
or bncks and mortar, issues within
the district.
The district also finds itself in


something of a pickle rising prop-
ermt values, which jumped more
than 17 percent this year. are actu-
ally driving, in part. a spike in mill-
age rates for local taxpayers.
For 2003-2004, the state has
set the required local effort village
at 5.2920. up from 5.2640..
That means the district is
required to bring in some 64 per-
cent of the total budget funding
Gulf County schools.
That is an 18,51 percent
increase in required local funding.
in terms of dollars. from last year.
and continues a recent trend which
has seen local ta\-payers picking up
more and more of the county's
budget for public schools.
Given the jump in local proper-
ty, rates, the rollback village rate
for required local funding would be
4.4655.
However, the state has estab-
lished local funding at nearly a mill
more than the rollback.
To not meet state dictates for
local effort would be to forgo some
$4.65 million in state funds.
According to Florida law, the
Legislature establishes unadjusted
local effort funding for the entire
state in its education budget each
year.
S The Commissioner of
Education, using last year's tax
rolls, then computes required local
effort for each district.
SThe average local effort millage
statewide was 5.808.
An equalization factor is
applied to account for variations in
property values between districts.
Boiled down to terms the rest
of us can understand, that means
as property values rise,' moving
toward the state median or above,
equalization means that more of
the responsibility for paying for
schools falls on the shoulders of
local taxpayers.
Discretionary funding, both
regular and supplemental, which is
put into general revenue and is
used to pay such operating expens-
es as salaries and benefits, went
down, by nearly two-hundredths of .
a mill.
That was largely due to declin-
ing enrollment the state caps dis-
cretionary funding at $50 per stu-
dent.
Meanwhile, the School Board
voted to bump the capital outlay
Smillage from one mill to 1.25 mills,
generating a total of $1.57 million,

Rep. Boyd Will


File CBRA Bill
by Tim Croft
Like Sisyphus and his rock, local officials are reaching a critical point
on the march up the mountain toward lifting the Coastal Barrier Resource
Act (CBRA) designation from Cape San Bias and Indian Pass.
In the next five or si\ months, they should know whether. their efforts
will ultimately lead to the-summit, or back to where they started.
County Chief Administrator Don Butler, lobbyist William Harrison
and Ron Morrow, president of the Gulf County Coastal Development
Association traveled to Washington D.C. last week to visit Congressman
Allen Boyd, who has pubbcly committed to filing a bill to lift the CBRA
designation:on the Cape and Indian Pass.
With Congress about to crank up for the fall session, the trip was
aimed at finalizing language of the bill ard to assess the political land-
Sscape as the legislation moves forward. The next steps are.critical.
Boyd is likely to'file the bill-around the first of September. Morrow
said, at which time it would he referred to a committee within the House
of Representatives. That committee, particularly its chairman, will hold
powerful sway over the ffiture of the bill.
The committee chairman could allow the bill to perish of neglect or,
should the bill be considered, the, committee could vote the bill down.
Either action would effectively kill the legislation.
The bill could be taken up by the committee at any time during the
fall session.
"If you can'get.it out of committee and to the floor you have a good
shot," Morrow said. "My sense was that Boyd could probably make it hap-
pen."
Boyd, his staff and the local contingent reviewed one by one the com-
mittee members whose support would be required to move the bill, their
likely stance on the bill and strategies for moving the legislation through
the House to the Senate. Morrow said consideration of.the bill's chances
in the Senate is for another day and another time.
"We aren't worrying about the Senate right now," Morrow said. "We
are worrying about getting it to the House floor."
Boiled to basics, there's a ton of work to do and local efforts can not
flag.
'The next four to five months will be critical," Morrow said.
Morrow said the GCCDA would in September be seeking property
owners' support by taking up a campaign of phone calls and letters to
Florida legislative, leaders on Capitol Hill.
Overturning the CBRA designation, which was instituted on the Cape
and parts.of Indian Pass in the 1980s, is seen as an economic develop-
ment factor by county officials.
The volatility of the private flood insurance market has left homeown-
ers and potential homeowners either unable to procure flood insurance,
Sor able only to secure a policy at exorbitant, almost prohibitive, cost.
CBRA, passed to prevent development in pristine coastal areas, pre-
vents homeowners and mortgage brokers from securing federally-backed
insurance.
The county's argument, passionately made during a visit by Boyd ear-
'ler this summer, is two-fold.
One is strict economics.
The availability, or-unavailability of securing flood insurance, trickles
down the line from banks and mortgage brokers to potential homeowners
to developers to contractors.
With development on the Cape and Indian Pass, and the tax revenues
associated with that growth, becoming more and more a critical compo-
nent for filling county coffers, the potential loss of ad valorem tax revenue
and, potentially, jobs, is nettlesome for the county.

Members of the Port'Authority,
St. Joe Company, Smurfit Stone,
,City of Port St. Joe, and Gulf
Economic Development Committee
continued what has been a series of
work shops to facilitate a joint mis-
sion/direction for the development
of a port facility.
These meetings started three
months ago when the St. Joe
Company proposed the use of a
facilitator to help the parties work
through issues and differences in
the port concept. Most of those.dif-


ferences revolve around the use of
the old mill site and bulkhead as a
location for port activity.
The Port Authority has hired a
marketing firm to .assist them in
finding port business to revitalize
the Port of Port St. Joe, or as they:
state it, 'put the port back in Port
St. Joe.
As they have tried to go forward
in the negotiation process, using
the docks at the old mill site.has
become a major point of contention.

Listening With My Heart


$28 Million, Its Not That



Much If You Say It Fast

It was last year about this time I was sitting behind the key-
board (or maybe that was BC-before computers) trying to get my
thoughts together to talk about taxable values topping the one
billion dollar mark in Gulf County.
Without going back and looking up the article, it seems I pre-
dicted we would see the two billion mark a lot quicker than we
might think in Gulf County. One year later and we are already
nearly one.third of the way to that second billion.
Tim's article about property values taking another giant leap
this year, in last week's paper, once again points out just how fast
this community is growing. Gulf County Property Appraiser
Kesley Colbert gave us his annual report card on property values,
verifying that values were up $228 million.
Now,: lets put this in perspective-$228 million is,a ,17.250o
S: increase, over last year:. Thewyay I have it figured I could buy,
45.j600 pi icklip trucks just lik the one I have if I had that kind
of money. Now, that's, a lot of wornr out trucks.
In just five short years property values have all but doubled
in the county. Again, putting that in perspective means a mill of
Property values produces twice as much money today as it did
five years ago. That would be like getting a 100% pay raise over a
five year period iffyour check-was based on village rates and you
were paid based on the same'number of mills over the five year
time span.
There is no way to predict what might happeinto property' \val-
ues over the next few years, but if they continue to increase at the
current pace. 17.25% this year, ir less than three years we will
top the two billion dollarmark. Another bench mark to keep:in
mind if this were to happen, taxable property values would have
triple in approximately eight years.
.Anyway you add the numbers it is phenomenal what is hap-
pening to the value of property in Gulf County.



Public Enemy #1-



I Rememb er Wher

Gulf County Commissioners declared mosquitoes as public
enemy #1 during their meeting last week. Commissioner Carmen
McLemore got a few laughs when he jokingly described how bad
the problem was around his-residence in Wewa.
I didn't laugh. I knew he was telling the truth. It was just a
few years ago when I got attacked by giant mutant skeeters while
trying to turkey hunt up near Carmen's home.
They were some of the biggest critters I've ever see.' If one of
them had gotten that straw in all of your bodily fluids would be
sucked out in a matter of minutes. Come to think of it, all of the
commotion being made over mosquitoes carrying EEE and West-
Nile virus pale in comparison to what those giant skeeters might'
have done to me.. This was, one of the few times I was afraid while
turkey hunting.
Come to think of it,. I may know why Carmen's so skinny now.
One of those giant skeeters probably got hold of him.
The county's extra efforts must be paying off. My wife Shirley
and I went for our walk Monday night and I don't remember any
mosquitoes buzzing around our heads.


Jesse strolled out of the door
behind the organ talking to his
brother. He, the preacher and the
rest of the groomsmen made their
way to the front of the church.
Josh leaned in and said something
to him as they turned to face the
crowd and watch the bridesmaids
make that slow walk down the
aisle. They both smiled.
I had a pretty good seat for
this one. Second row. And since
there is some kind of law against
putting, folks on the front row at
weddings I had an unobstructed
view' of the whole thing.
I figured I had earned it!
Josh and Jess exchanged a
few more words as everyone rose
to their feet as the bride entered.
My eyes lingered on the boys down
front. How tall and straight they
stood! And my, how formal and


elegant they looked!
I don't know much about \ved-
dines. And I haven't had much
practice being the lather of the
groom. But. as they stood side by
side. all cleaned up and so regal
appearing, I found myself out in
the back yard twenty years in the
past. Josh had dirt ririgs under his
chir, Jesse's hair was stuck to his
forehead and both had sweat liter-
ally pouring off their little faces.
They were pretty much side by
side back then and-they were, also
talking.....but I guarantee you nei-
ther one was whispering as they
disputed a close play at the tree
that doubled as third base or
whether a "long one" was foul or
fair or who was ahead by a run.....
I'm telling you, it was always just a
split second between the baseball.
game and thewrestling match!
If Jessica could have only seen
him.then-she might not be walk-
ing down that aisle right now! :
As Jesstook her hand in his I
wondered "what happened to all
those years".
I remember the day ,he, was


born like it was just this morning
Of all the days of my life it is w\th-
out question the "stand out" one
for me! He was born two nionths
premature. He weighed 2 pounds
and 6 ounces After nearly a quar-
ter ol'a century Dr. Benton's words s
that morning still ring in my ears,
"If we can stabilize him and if there
are no complications and if we can
get him to Sacred Heart and if he
is a fighter.....he might have a
chance."
God had a hand on this life
from the very beginning.
He was our quiet child. While
Josh was a little "in your face" with
the who, what, where, why and
how questions Jess picked it up by
watching and listening. And by
quietly pondering. If he did ask a
question, I couldn't answer it! He
was born smart. And he had that-
dogged determination that he
must have gotten from his moth-
er.....
S The Geoghagans saing.me back
to the present as Jess and .Jessica
turned to face each other. I
remembered the summer several


ye-ars back when she bounded over
at a baseball game. "Hey. Mr. Kes!"
SHey Jessica. what are you
douln this summer?"
Nothing. I'm really kind of
bored."
"\ell. Jess -will be home from
school this week-end, maybe ya'll
can get together."
You never know!
Brother Bill mentioned the
journey this' happy couple was'
starting on. I immediately found
myself in the bedroom on a. raft
with 'Toim", "Joke", "Bill", Uncle
Leon and Grover Cleveland
Alexander floating down the Cas-
cade Riher. The raft would tip over,
or we'd hit a rock,-you talk about
a crash! We barely escaped with

S- NOTICE THE OWNERS of
Cooper's Barber Shop have moved
out to another location.,
Something else which has
been in one place for a long time
has even moved; but before that, it
was changed-from strictly a men's
barber shop to a unise. hair salon
It makes one wonder why the
old tried and truee barber shops
._have disappeared from our small,
--but vital, town!
We used to have three'barber
shops operating at one time and
still there was a waiting line to get
in the chair.
Cooper's was the most historic
one, and now it's moved.
George Cooper used to operate
out of an old wood frame building
back in the early 40s. He had one
side and Frenchie Guillory's Club
Cafe was in the other side. Cooper
would clip and shave men and
boys and Frerichie would cook up

steak, hamburger steak and the.

ETAOIN SHRDLU


Written by Wesley Ramsey


always. simmering pot of chili, you
ever wrapped a tongue around.

THEN,: IN THE LATE 40s, it
burned to the ground..
Immediately, Cooper started
re-building the building, this time
of brick. Frenchie .moved his cafe
to Valpariso and Cooper re-opened
his barber shop in the same loca-
tion, where he operated it until he
died. Cooper was in his 90s, and
still cutting hair!
S Frenchie Guillory; with his
britches legs rolled up to the top of
his hunting boots, had his, grill in
the front window, and his, ham-
burger rolled in little balls, a little


larger than a golf ball.
Someone would order a ham-
burger or a hamburger steak, and
he would get one ball out of the
refrigerator and mash it down,
paper thin, on his grill and make
the best you ever did eat., .
Everybody Went to Valpariso,
back in the 50s, when we played
them in football, just to get a bowl
of Frenchie's chili and a hamburg-
er.

COOPER OPERATED his bar-
ber" shop, along with three other
talkative barbers. There were
Frank Nelson in the first chair,
"Goober" Lovett in the second,


Eldridge Money at the third and
Cooper at the fourth chair.
The last one to, operate his
barber chair was Frank Nelson',
who started immediately after he
came back from .the war and
served untiljust. a few years ago
when he, had to give it up because
he was going blind.
Along with Terry Hinote. who
operated his.shop for awhile in the
building right behind the Chevron
station:'H. M. Hammock who oper-
ated a shop in the building on Reid
Avenue currently occupied by a
jewelry store, and his son, Jack
Hammock who later had a shop
where the antique shop is now.

THERE ARE MORE' men in
Port St. Joe, now, than there were
then, but still we have no barber
shops dedicated primarily to out-
ting men's hair.
I tised to patronize George
Cooper's barber shop, for years
and years.


Occasionally, I would go to
Jack Hamrimock's shop, in later
Yearss,
I still remember Herbert
Brown asking Mr. Cooper: "George,
c. wouldn't you give me a discount,
seeing as how nearly all my hair is
gone."
Cooper would 'always answer
him. back: "Oh, but I have to
charge you for HUNTING them!"
'Haircuts weren't but 50c then.,
After I got my haircut, I had to,
have me a shoe shine.
James Hill shined shoes in,
Cooper's ever since there was a
Cooper's, I believe.
It was James' barber shop, to
hear him tell it. A bit of hair could-
n't fall to the floor, without James'
grabbing a broom and sweeping it
Sup.
James kept everyone enter-
tained, with his fishing stories and
big league baseball, during the
season-particularly, the New York
Yankees.


I remember a fish story James
told me one day. He said: "The fish
are sure biting down in the Broth-
ers River. Why, I latched onto one
the other day ,fly fishing, that
pulled the boat broadside, against'
the current. He was a big old
bream, too." .

THAT KIND OF "STORY"
went on constantly in the "good old
days" when men had their own
barber shops.
There was always a row of
chairs, sitting against, the wall,
where men could just sit and tell
stories and news and exchange
gossip, to their heart's content.
SBy the way,-did you know that
our long-time Sheriff, Byrd Parker,
was a barber in Port St. Joe at one
time?
SIf my information is correct, he
operated Cooper's before, he
became Sheriff, then he sold to
George Cooper.

The Star, Port St. Joe, FL Thursday, July 31, 2003 Page 3A


White and Ross Re-Appointed to Port Authority


by Tim Croft
It was the wrong time to
change horses.
At a critical, even historic,
time in the history of Port St. Joe
as an intermodal hub, Gov. Jeb
Bush has chosen to leave the five-
member Port St. Joe Port
Authority board line-up intact.
Last week, the governor re-
appointed David "Gary" Ross and
Johanna White to new four-year
terms on the board, the terms to
expire in July 2007.
White, the vice-president of
Capital City Bank, and Ross',
retired and the county's chairman
for the Republican Party, were
both completing the unexpired
terms of others when they were re-
appointed to the Port Authority.
"I think it's a good thing the
governor made these re-appoint-
ments," said Tommy Pitts, execu-
tive director of the Port Authority.
"With all the efforts ongoing at the
port at this time, this is no time to
change members at this critical
point, when so many important
decisions are to be made."
Both White and Ross also
noted this time of tremendous flux
and opportunity.
With the paper mill demolition
nearly complete projections are


particularly as local officials exam-
ine intermodal, or the moving of
goods and people, as a key spur in
the wheels of economic develop-
ment.
"The opportunity here is
unique," Ross said. "To have a
blank sheet of paper, you'll never
see it again.
'"he future of this community
will be decided by what happens
out there."
The key, White noted, will be
luring all the stakeholders the
city, county, The St. Joe Co.,
Smurfit-Stone and the Port
Authority to the same page of the
book.


"We have so much to be
thankful for, we have such a
resource here," said White, who
has served on the Port Authority
board for about 18 months. "There
is so much a port can offer us.
We're trying to bring everybody to
the table.
"We just need to get (the port)
going and we will with support,
from everybody, St. Joe, the city,
the county, the community."
Ross noted that, indeed, this
would be a tough spot in which to
toss a newcomer to the Port
Authority.
He said the past two years he's
been on the board have been
about learning. Now the work, and

Authority Meeting.
the work will be completed some- knocking at the door, this is a crit-
time in the fall and growth ical time for the future of the port,


he said serving had become the
equivalent of a full-time job, was
getting down to the nitty gritty.
And he said at some point, the
issue of the port's future will have
to be taken to the folks in the com-
munity.
"The five of us can't make
these decisions on our own," Ross
said.
White welcomed the opportu-
nity to be a part of the equation.
"I'm proud to be able to have
to serve the community like this
...," she said, "to facilitate quality
growth and the creation of good-
paving jobs."

in the church sensed this was

Brother Bill reminded us all,
that Jess -was the "head of the
household" and I remembered
when he set the car on fire. He was
four or five I think. And I recalled
the time he threw the bat over the
fence and through my shed win-
dow. He was about eight when that
happened. And he somehow man-
aged to blow the engine out of an
almost brand new lawnmower with
relative ease. Fourteen. And who
could forget the cheese head! He
was nineteen that Christmasl
But I also remembered him
not eating the last piece of any-
thing if he thought, someone else
wanted it. I thought of the times he
put his brother AND his mother
.and father before his own wishes. I
* remember when he would come
home from school with his heart
on someone less fortunate than
himself. I recalled his quiet resolve
to not be influenced by people or
forces that he deemed unreliable. I
relived his life changing mission
trip to Honduras. I remember his
phone call from college, "Dad, I am
going to major in religion. I believe
God is calling me into the min-
istry."
I figured he was way more
than ready for "head of the house-
hold" status.
I was so proud. And so thank-

honor them on this special day. I

St. Joe Foundation Nearly Doubles Donation


by Tim Croft
It is economics that does, on a
scale, actually trickle down.
To help, where possible, to lift
up a region. Or, maybe more accu-
rately, allow that region to tag
along, hand-in-hand, on the road
to prosperity.
The St. Joe Community
Foundation, which wasn't even,
* wearing that moniker a year ago,
recently released its annual
report, which highlighted that the
foundation, with more than
$600,000 in grants to Gulf,
Franklin, Bay and Walton counties
in 2002, nearly doubled its dollar
contributions to date in areas
such as health care, education,
recreation and historic preserva-
tion.
Funded directly from sales in
Arvida/St. Joe communities,
including WindMark Beach in Gulf
County, the foundation formerly
known as the Northwest Florida
Improvement Foundation, has
grown along with the company's
bottom line.
.While providing assistance in
areas, such as constructing soccer
fields, or preserving lighthouses,
funding arts education programs,
that represent precious,- and too
often exceedingly rare, threads in
the fabric of community.
"St. Joe wants to put back into
the community," said Lewis
Howell, one of five members of the
foundation's board of trustees.
"We are paying some rent for the-
space we occupy.
S"We're set up to fund needs in
the community. The proof is in the
pudding. Look at our grants, we
feel we have been a benefit for the
community."
The foundation has put nearly
25 percent of its donations:into
Gulf County alone since 1999.
SIn 2003, the. number was
$46,000, ranging from $1,000 for
Project Graduation at both high
schools to $5,000 for' arts educa-
tion and scholarships to $20,000
for historic preservation at the
Cape San Blas lighthouse.
In Franklin County, where
SummerCamps, once it clears all
pre-development hurdles' will join
the foundation's revenue stream,
the foundation provided $3,000
each to the Apalachicola Maritime
Museum and the Dixie Theater, as


well as money for Project
Graduation at both high schools.
These contributions represent
a central theme of the foundation,
to provide assistance in establish-
ing civic infrastructure while the
company that founded and funds
it addresses infrastructure, con-
currency, if you will, on a much
broader scale.
'The foundation is for these
types of missions," Howell said. "If
these missions are accomplished
people in these communities will
benefit.
"Not just the new (or Arvida)
community, but the 50-year-old
community."
Foundation funding is derived
from one-half of one percent of
each sale at Arvida communities
from WaterColor in Walton County
to WindMark.
As part of each initial sale, the
buyer also agrees to a covenant
through which a transfer fee is
paid to the foundation each time
the property is subsequently sold.
The transfer fee is also worth
one-half of one percent of the sale
price.
"It's a method to have a steady
funding stream," Howell said.
"Hopefully, the people who pur-
chase (Arvida properties) will be
proud of what we are doing."
The funding source, the trans-
fer fee, is in legalese in perpetuity
on all sales documents pertaining
to that property.
.If that provision is untenable

for a buyer, he or she will be kind-
ly asked to consider other proper-
ty.
"If they are not willing to buy
into the community ... go some-
where else," said Pam Selton,
executive director of the founda-
tion. "It's not about land specula-
tion or buying into a community,
it's about putting back."
Putting back in a host of direc-
tions. Putting back through cre-
ativity and, wherever possible,
partnerships.
It is really about partnering,
with a community in addressing
its needs, with other foundations
or non-profits to leverage funds,
with ordinary folks making, quite
often, extraordinary contributions.
"Whenever you have a com-
munity that cares," Selton noted,
"it's a nicer place to be.
"What adds value, what
increases value to the community,
benefits everybody."
And the foundation the foun-
dation has laid, Selton and Howell,


agreed will only expand, become
stronger, more a part of the soil of
a community.
The real estate development
market might dip, Howell noted,
but a community's won't.
And while the issues the foun-
dation addresses, and dollars
expended, may seem like crumbs
to some critics of the company
that midwived it, a few thousand
here and a few thousand there and
before you know it you are talking
real money. .
Real money that, given the ris-
ing houses at Arvida communities
across the region, appears likely to
be around for awhile.
"It's for the future," Selton
said. "This is just the beginning."
.Howell added, "A lot of crumbs,
can make a whole cake.",

School Board

but which was nearly half a mill
lower than that requested by
Kelley.
The board had whittled the
number from more than 1.60 mills
during a recent workshop, making
often difficult choices on capital
improvements that are deemed as
needed across the county, with
aging buildings and other critical
bricks-and-mortar requirements.
There are 10 or fewer districts,
depending on this year's budgeting,
that are not at the two mills thresh-
old, the maximum a school district
can assess for capital projects.
The big-ticket capital projects
that the board prioritized for action
this year include the purchase of
two buses, roof renovations at all
three Wewahitchka Schools, new
gym bleachers at Port St. Joe High,
School, new football bleachers at
Wewahitchka High School and the
continuing contract with Horeywell
for maintenance of copiers and
other equipment, which alone runs
more than $400,000.
Other projects include refur-
bishing lockers at Wewahitchka
Elementary, fireproofing filing and
storage areas at Port St. Joe High
School, new carpeting at the dis-
trict offices and the media center at
Wewahitchka Elementary and
resurfacing sidewalks, at
Wewahitchka Elementary.
In contrast to last week's vote
to advertise the tentative budget
and millage rates, Tuesday's vote
was 4-1, with Sharon Gaskin vot-
ing against the budget based on the
rise in capital outlay millage and
against the 'backdrop of informa-
tion provided to the board during a
workshop prior-to the meeting.
(See related item below).
Tuesday's vote was to certify
the village rate to the Property
Appraiser to allow for the prepara-
tion of TRIM,notices, or notices of
proposed property taxes.
The board will revisit the budg-'
et, and millage rates, when it con-
-siders a final budget in September.
In other business taken up
during Tuesday's board workshop,


and special meeting:
During the workshop the
board heard a proposal to issue
new bonds, using the half-cent
sales tax approved by local voters
in 1997.
S It could be, said Ralph Cellon
Jr., vice president of public finance
for Gainesville-based Morgan
Keegan, a method for the board to
meet its capital improvement needs
without raising taxes.
Originally passed for the reno-
vation of Port St. Joe Elementary
,School and other capital improve-
ments the board may assess as
Required, the half-cent sales tax is
due to continue through 2017.
It was aimed at raising roughly
$2 million for those renovations at
Port St. Joe Elementary, which are
all but complete.
Language in the original bond,
paperwork indicate that the board
was free to modify what projects
the funds would be used for, taking
the best interests of the district into
account.
And collections have, to- date,
well exceeded the bond .payments.
For instance, last year the half-cent
sales tax brought in $437,352, with
the district's payment on the bond
coming to just under $253,000.
The district puts the extra dol-
lars into a reserve account, which
has now grown to $684,000.
Essentially, the: proposal
brought by Cellon and 16cal attor-
ney Billy Joe Rish, who were key
players in the referendum approv-
ing the sales tax and the issuance
of bonds back in 1997-98, is for the
district to re-issue the bonds,
bringing in just over $1.1 million,
for capital needs.
While that would add some-
wheie just over $100,000 to the
annual debt service on the capital
'improvement bonds, the revenue
from the half-cent sales tax, as
noted, would, by all estimates, still
well /exceed the* debt service and
trends indicate that revenue from
taxable sales is liable to only rise.
'We need the money for capital
improvements," Gaskin- noted. "It

STOLEN VEHICLE
On Sunday, July 27, Port St.
Joe Police Department was con-
tacted inreference to a vehicle
stolen from Reid Avenue sometime
between July 26: at approximately
10:30 p.m. and July,27, at approx-


imately 12:01 p.m.
The vehicle is a 2000 Ford F-
150 dark green in color bearing tag
pT72BTH. The vehicle has a stick-
er on thc rear v-.ridov. behind the
dn\er side- which reads "Florida
91101 Terronst Hunting Permit"
which is approximately three inch-
es ly five inches, yellow with red
letters and a red outline of thie
State of Florida. Anyone with infor-
mation about this vehicle is asked
to contact the Port St: Joe Police.
Department.


was a struggle for this board to
pass that on to the taxpayers.
"If this is another avenue, I
think we should consider it."
And board member Linda Wood
and Rish both commented that the
sales tax is something all taxpay-
ers, including the thousands of
tourists who flock here each year,
absorb, while a bump in the capital
improvement millage is borne sole-
ly by property owners.
The general sense from board
members was that they'were open
to considering the proposal, with
certain caveats tossed out for con-
sideration.
The first was whether or not
the half-cent sales tax could legally
be halted before 2017.
Currently, the district would
appear to be on track to retire, or
defensee", the bonds in 2010-2011,
but it was unclear whether there
was any legal basis the tax was
approved by voters for a term of 20
years under which the half-cent
sales tax itself could be stopped. .
In other words, if the money
must be collected, by law, anyway,
why not leverage it?
"That would have considerable
bearing on our decision," said-
Superintendent Jerry Kelley.
Board member Charlotte Pierce
also wanted input from the com-
mittee members who spearheaded
the original drive to get the half-.
cent sales tax approved.
She said their insight was
important as background as to
what commitments were made t6
voters when the sales tax was
approved.
Cellon said he would return to
his firm ,for a legal, opinion on
whether the half-cent sales tax can
be halted for the board's further
consideration of the proposal.
The board met in executive
session following the board meeting
to, discuss the opening of negotia-
tions with Gulf County Education
Association, the union representing
teachers and non-instructional
personnel.
Bargaining began last week
with the union's proposal that
teachers receive a two percent raise
effective July 31 and the board up
its contribution to health insurance
coverage .for the single' employee
plan from about 75-80 percent to
90 percent.
For non-instructional employ-
ees, the union is proposing a 35
cents an hour raise for all employ-
ees, equal to roughly two percent,
and that the board up its contribu-
tion on the single employee health
insurance plan to 90 percent.
The sides will resume bargain-
ing next week..

Wewa Tweaks Occupational License; Prepares


for Groundbreaking on New Medical Facility


by Tim Croft
During a relatively light agenda
on Monday night, the Wewahitchka
City Council during its regular bi-
monthly meeting tweaked its ordi-
nance pertaining to occupational
licenses.
It was also announced that the
ground-breaking ceremony for the
new Wewahitchka Medical Facility,
adjacent to the ambula; e build-
ing, will be 10 a.r. CT on
Wednesday, July 30.
Congressman Allen Boyd, D-
Florida, is expected to be on hand
for the ceremonies to kick-off con-,
struction on the new medical facili-
ty.


Immediately following the cere-
mony, Boyd will host a tour of the
Apalachicola River for
Congressman David Hobson, chair-
man of the House Appropriations
Energy and Water sub-committee.
Representatives from the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers and the
Apalachicola Bay and Riverkeepers
will also join the tour, which is cen-
tered around the dredging of the'
river.
As for the ordinance on occu-
pational licenses in Wewahitchka,
the City Council approved a third
version of the ordinance in the past


several months, this one meant to
provide clarity to the city's guide-
lines on vendors within city limits.
Specifically, the latest version
tweaks two areas.
One is the definition of flea
markets. If vendors at a flea market
are selling used goods they may do
so under the occupational license
procured by the organizer of the
Sflea market.
In the case of vendors selling
new items, however, they must
secure an additional occupational
license than that for the flea mar-
ket.
Additionally, the cost of an

CBRA
-From Pgl

Which is in large part why: the
county has appropriated funds,
$5,000 a month, to Harrison's firm'
to assist in lobbying state and, par-
ticularly, federal officials.
Morrow noted that Harrison
had "proven invaluable" in making
progress and providing access at
the federal level, whhere Harrison is
already a lobbyist for several enti-
Sties, including The St. Joe Co.
The second component to the
county's argument to lift the CBRA
designation comes down to reali-
ties.
When CBRA was approved by
Congress in 1982, the Cape was,
local officials' and developers
argued to Boyd, hardly pristine
untouched land.
Roads and dozens of homes
already threaded through and dot-
-ted the landscape.
From the beginning, county
officials argue, it was inappropriate
to stamp the Cape and Indian Pass
with the CBRA designation.

Mold A Male / Female Annual


Program Set For This Weekend


by Tim Croft
Bennie Tiller was never what
one would call a juvenile delin-
quent.
He was just a normal kid, in
need of just a little guidance, a lit-
tle direction in life.
Project Mold-A-Male/Female,
and Maxine and Chester Gant were
there and prepared to fill the bill.
"When I first started with the
program, I wasn't a bad kid," said
Tiller, who will be a junior at Port
St. Joe High School when school
begins next week. "I just needed to
get my head on straight, to focus,
to have goals."
That, in essence, is one of the
linchpins of Project Mold-A-
Male/Female, which will hold its
annual youth conference about
community concerns beginning
+ .


Thursday, July 31 and running
through Saturday, August 2.
The program is aimed at par-
ents and youths aged 7-17, agen-
cies dealing with youth and other
interested parties in the communi-
ty.
"It's coming together," Maxine
Gant said of the planning for this
year's program. "It's on the way."
All events during the three-day
conference 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 marries workshops and pre-
sentations on weighty subjects
such as drug use and teen preg-
nancy with lighter fare such as a
fashion show, pizza party and a

Maness with fishing gear won from the North American Fishing Club


Just Call Him "Lucky"


David "Dave" Maness hauled
in the big catch and he wasn't even
fishing.
Not many people take their
sport more seriously than Dave.
Just about every day he gets an,
opportunity to go fishmg he hooks
to his boat and heads that direc-
tion, and when Dave is not fishing
he's thinking about fishing.
Thinking about fishing can
* sometimes be productive. Dave
proved this by joining the North
American Fishing Club, becoming
a life member, testing fishing prod-
ucts, and keeping up with what the
club was doing. Next thing Dave
knows someone contacts- him,
telling him he's won "Member of
The Year" honors- and will be
receiving $3,550 in prizes to recog-
nize him for his loyalty to the club.
In the photo above Dave is sur-
rounded by some of the bounty he
received.
'The UPS man asked, 'What
have you ordered now?', when he
delivered all of those boxes," Dave
said.
Dave's boat isn't large enough
for the bountiful prizes.
"I'm not going to have to buy


Christmas presents for the next
few years," Dave commented as he
made plans to clean up the living
room/fishing show place before his
wife Melba brought him back down
to earth.

carnival.
The theme of this year's confer-
ence centers around choices and
consequences, about the decisions
young people, nay, people of all
ages, make and the baggage that
comes with unsound choices.
"There are issues our commu-
nity has that we need to address,
crime, drugs, life after high school,
that we need to get everybody
together and, talk about," Tiller
said. 'This can be a step in that
direction.
The first two days of the annu-
al 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
performance by the gospel group,
the New Gulf Coast Singers.
Friday is all about education,
about scholarships and broadening
horizons, peering beyond high
school to higher education.
"A lot of kids, after high school.
they think that's it," Tiller said.
There will be a workshop ses-
sion for parents, explaining their
role in encouraging their children
to think large.
Representatives from eight dif-
ferent state and local agencies will
be on hand to discuss options and
address questions.
A yearly highlight, the fashion
show will also be that second day of
the conference.
The scholarship theme will
spill over into Saturday when, at 10
a.m., there will be a special session
for upper middle-school and high-
school students and parents at
Zion Fair Baptist Church.
A panel which will include the
principal and guidance counselor

at the St Petersburg Coinmunity-
College Tarppn Springs campus.
He has been with the college for
22 years, including 15 as an eco-
nomics professor.
The conference, the volunteers,
the programs are all spun from the
passion Maxine Gant carries for the
younger generations.
"I worry about these children,"
she said, the angst etched on her
face. "Iworry about them day and
night."
S"Preparation for just living is
lacking. I'm angry about the whole
situation. It reflects a lack of per-.

Meeting on S.S. Vamar Preserve


Proposal Slated for Thursday Evening


by Tim Croft
It's all about community.
The state is on board, now the
local folks must join the cruise as
efforts to create an underwater
archaeological preserve of the
wreckage of the S.S. Vamar west of
the channel, directly off Beacon
Hill, sail forward.
Which is why a second meeting
about the preserve proposal slat-
ed for 7-9 p.m. on Thursday, July
31 at the Port St. Joe Fire Station -
will be different.
Instead of skimming along the'
surface of the state's efforts to date,
as with last month's initial meeting,
this one will be aimed at compelling
interested community members to
jump in with both feet.
"It's going to take a local com-
munity to show their support to
make it happen," said Della Scott,
an underwater archaeologist with
the Florida Division of Historic
Preservation.
One reason is symbolic.
Community support to create from
what is left of the S.S. Vamar the
state's ninth underwater historic
preserve is an essential motivator
for state advocates.
'The state won't go into an area
and say we are going to put in a
preserve and you will like it," Scott
noted.
The other reason is logistical.
With only three staff members
in the Division of Historic
Preservation's underwater archaeo-


::
~t-:
--- -
I--
'--- --'----
.---~
-n. ---


logical unit, it is impossible for the
state to maintain and manage all
sites around the state.
"It's impossible to continue
management and maintenance of
the preserve without local involve-
ment, on a long-term basis," Scott
continued.
"We've gotten several letters of
support and eveiy one helps."
Thursday's meeting will center
around several areas.
"We want to talk about what,
the next steps will be," Scott -aid.
One is establishing committees
to deal with various aspects of the
preserve proposal; including the
wording of the bronze plaque which
would mark the preserve and mrain-
tenance and management of the
site.
The official proposal to estab-


lish the S.S. Vamar as a preserve
will also be distributed.
And Scott will discuss what she
discovered about the Vamar during
a recent trip to the National
Archives.
Apparently, the Coast Guard
sent a pair of investigators to Port
St. Joe after the Vamar sank in
about 25 feet of water under suspi-
cious circumstances in 1942.
The prevailing theory to this'
day is that ,the crew, German in
i origin, sabotaged the ship to pre-
vent its load of lumber from reach-
ing the U.S. base in Cuba.
SSome say the boat was over-
loaded, listed and took on water.
Still others,say the crew had no
interest in running a gauntlet of.
German U-boats 'known to be
patrolling the waters off Florida
and simplyscuttled the ship.
'There'are these really interest-
ing stories and rumorsthat were
circulating," Scott said.
According to the federal files,.
one crew member was .stopped
from taking a picture of his girl-
friend on a bridge the backdrop
he had lined up for the picture
included the paper mill, as if he
might be photographing strategic
areas.
Crew members were apparent-
ly flush with money and used their
good looks and dough during a
time of economic fragility to attract
local females.
One crew member spent con-
siderable time in a local bar, where
he reportedly met a mysterious
woman on a frequent basis, Scott
said.
They spoke in a foreign lan-
guage and the woman would disap-
pear for a few days or more, then
.isit.agai n. .. .. .
The Coast Guard invesugatqrs
conducted extensive interviews
with local folks and inspected the
wreckage, all without being able to
prove conclusively why the Vamar
went down.
'They didn't come to a final
conclusion," Scott said. "They
could not substantiate anything.
But the entire file, about 30 pages,
adds more to the story of the ship-
wreck."'
And to the proposal to create a
preserve of the wreckage.
Creating such preserves, Scott


noted, dovetails heritage, eco- and
recreational tourism in one loca-
tion.
Scott noted that heritage
'tourism and eco-tourism are two of
the fastest growing niches in the
tourism industry.
Heritage tourists spent more
than $3.7 billion in Florida in 2001,
according to the Haas Center for
Business Research and Economic
Development at the University of
West Florida.
The highest percent of such
tourists, the center also noted, visit
historic sites in Florida during the
winter months.
'There are a lot of benefits" to
creating a historic preserve of the
Vamar, Scott said. "Part of it is
interpretation and preservation of
an important site.
"The whole point is for people
to continue to enjoy these sites and
learn more about them."


by Tim Croft
More than a year before he is
to break ground on an ambitious
expansion of his marina, Kevin
Presnell already has one important
amenity on board.
Namely, ,the Lady J, or more
specifically the reputation of Capt.
Danny Tankersley.
Presnell, who is slated to begin
construction of a sweeping renova-
tion of the marina complex that
bears his family's name, recently
purchased the Lady J from
Tankersley.
Tankersley still owns a piece of
the charter boat, and will continue
to operate and maintain the boat in
-tandem with the larger Lady J II.
''but once Presnell's renovated mari-
na, with its mix of retail, motel,
restaurant and. meeting space, is
complete, hopefully by the spring
of 2005, a prominent recreational
option for guests will be charters
on the Lady J..
"No one will really notice that
I'm there," Presnell said. "Danny is
booking it and running it. I just
wanted an amenity tied to the
marina for our customers."
For Presnell, the deal was a
natural, given his vision of a every-
thing-for-everybody marina com-
plex.
From the get-go one of the
amenities he targeted was a venue
to provide charter fishing excur-
sions for guests.
To him, the name Tankersley
was the wax that sealed the deal.
"His reputation, that's why I
wanted him," Presnell said. 'That's
why I went to him first.
"Ie has the permits and the
slips. I walked into a ready-made
deal and he has a phenomenal rep-
utation."
And Presnell needed to strike
quickly becausesecuring a spot on
either of Tankersley's boats, the
42-foot Infinity Lady J I or its larg-
er sister the Lady J II, is as tough
as deep-sea fishing with a bamboo
pole.
"I'm booked a year in advance,"


Tankersley said. "It's been that way
for seven years or so. I don't adver-
tise. It's all word of mouth.
"And 99. percent are repeat
business.
It is the product, Tankersley
said, of lard work over a long peri-
od of time. He started in the early
1970s and has been running char-
ters full time the past 12 years.
"I've been in a long time,"
Tankersley said. "I try to do a good
job and to treat people right."
Capt. Brad Timmons and mate
Richard Ramsey, as they have, will
continue to crew the Lady J I.
S''" Thariket ley vill continue to
book the boat's charters and -the
rest.
"I still own a percent' of the-
boat," Tankersley said. "I look after
the boat, operate it, maintain it.
"What (Presnell is) getting is
really my overflow. He's got a good
deal going (with' his renovation
plans). The place is going to grow."
SThe first pieces are already
falling into place.
"I wanted his boat to, be an
amenity for the marina we are
building," Presnell said. "L couldn't
have walked into a better deal."

GENE 'RAFFIELD



YOUTH FOOTBALL





A WINNING TRADITION



Gene Raffield Football League Teams have winning records
unsurpassed in the history of Port St. Joe athletics. The 9 10 year
old Jaguar team has won three straight Super Bowls and has been
undefeated in all three years. In our first year in the Big Bend
Football League one of our teams made it to the playoff finals,
another to the Super Bowl and still another won the Super Bowl.


Winning is great but we teach far more than how to be good
winners. We strive to teach our young men the values of hard
work, discipline and respect for each other, their coaches and their
opponents. Football has been called the ultimate team sport. No

team can succeed without teamwork and our teams succeed.

Time To Register For Youth Football


The Gene Raffield Football
League is preparing for. another
great year of youth football. There
will be changes for 2003 that will
make the experience even better
for young men who participate.
In the 2002 season the Gene
Raffield Youth Football League
joined the Big Bend Football
League. This was an excellent
move because it gave the players
better competition than in previous
years. However, it did mean that
the teams had to travel longer dis-
tances for some of the games. This
year the league will have a home
and away series with the teams in
the Southern Division only, result-
ing in a trip to Blountstown being
the longest of the regular season.
The Middle School will have
only one team this year made up of
seventh and eighth graders, and


twelve-year-old seventh graders
who may not be as mature as some
of the older eighth-graders should
look to play for the Buccaneers.
The. goal of the Gene. Raffield
Football League and the Middle
School is to promote learning of
fundamentals and skills of the
game of football through experi-
ence. The organizers believe that
playing where the boys will get the
most practice time and game time
is in the best interest of the young
players.
Although 2002 was the first
year for the Gene Raffield Youth
Football League to participate in
the Big Bend League, they did very
well. The Buccaneers made the
finals of the playoff games despite
having no seventh grade players,
the Dolphins went .to the
Superbowl and the Jaguars had

Redfish Tour Debut Catches On


by Tim Croft
Numbers are strictly ephemer-
al in fishing.
Today's four-pounder becomes
tomorrow's 10-pounder. The one
that got away last week typically
grows and becomes heavier today.
So when Arthur Allison, direc-
tor of the Inshore Fishing
Association's Redfish Open Tour,
made several predictions- last
Saturday, the numbers could be


tossed overboard.
Allison predicted that the
Redfish Tour's first-ever stop in
Port St. Joe would produce a typi-
cal field of 50-70 boats.
And he said that given the time
of year and general fishing condi-
tions on a thick stormy day, the
winning redfish the length limit
on this catch-and-release tour is
26.5 inches would likely be in the
three- to four-pound range.

Tom Rogers of Tallahassee (right) landed the heaviest single fish during
thie tournament, 8.1 pounds. He was aboard with Capt. Stoney Thompson
(center) and Chris McConahg (left).


Neither number was oi the
mark, which was both a positive
and a negative.
In any case, the tournament
was enough of a success that
Allison said the tour would return
next spring with a series of three
tournaments jumping from
Apalachicola to Port St. Joe to
Panama City.
'We want to thank everybody in
this town," said' Jimmy Smart of
Tarpon, who with Capt. Dan
Mangino of Tampa won .first place
in aggregate weight of two fish with
14.22 pounds.
The pair also brought in .sec-
ond place for the heaviest individ-
ual fish with a 7:62-pounder.
"We've been here four days,"
Smart continued, "and everybody
has just been great."
Despite storms that flashed on
and off all day, the fishing proved
fairly good, though the captains
said they had to range from
Apalachicola to East 3ay and all
points between to find their targets.
Anglers brought redfish to the
'scales that were consistently in the
four to five pound range.
And while Mangino and Smart
set the tone early they were
among the first to the scales they
were challenged late as several
boats, including those of Trey
Landry, Charles Atkins and Gary
Messick, brought in stout fish.?.
"I was expecting maybe three
or four pounds would win this tour-
nament and they made liars out of
me," Allison said. "I'm pleasantly
surprised by the fish.being caught.
It indicates there is great fishing
here arid we look forward to being
back."
The top individual fish, at 8.1
pounds, was snagged by Tom
Rogers of Tallahassee, riding on the
boat of Capt. Stoney Thompson out
of Panama City.
They arrived at the scales in
the final minutes of the weigh-in.
'We caught him at the last
minute, just before we came in,"
Thompson said.
If there was a downside it was
that the field numbered just 20
boats.

Mexico Beach

Builds Reef


On July 9, the City of Mexico
Beach sank one hundred reef balls
,in the Car Body Permit Area off the
coast of Mexico Beach. The event
was directed and supervised by
Paul Sabiston, City Manager. The
reef was paid for by a $30,000
grant from the FWC.
I Ron Childs, board member (of
the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef
Association (MBARA) said,' 'The
City of Mexico Beach has built
three reefs with grant money in
four years. The city has done a
wonderful job of acquiring grant
money to enhance fishing and
tourism. They.are to be comihend-
ed."
The GPS coordinates of the
newest reef are N2954.024 and
W8532.500.

That shaved the purse, which
is based on 100 boats, by 80 per-
cent.
while the heaviest fish, in a.
100-boat tournament, would pay
$2,500, it paid $500 last Saturday.
The Redfish Tour cuts checks
for the top 10 individual fish and
the top 10 aggregate of two fish.
Allison noted that 15 pre-regis-
tered, a typical number on a tour
divided into pro and open divisions
based on a points system.
However, the walk-up number
was small, which Allison noted was
unusual.
There were likely several fac-
tors..
The weather was threatening
all day.
Catch-and-release is a fairly
novel concept in 'an area where
fishermen generally 'eat what they
catch.
And, in turn, many local fisher-.
men do not have live bait wells on
their boats, essential to keeping the
fish alive to the docks and' scale:
Two fishermen, foi example,'
were visibly disappointed when
they arrived at the. Port St. Joe
Marina dock with large fish which
did not survive the trip in.
"I think the event went great,"
said John Landry, director of the
Port St. Joe Marina. "They general-
ly have a bigger field, but it's a new
area and they went away pleased.,

MALOCCLUSION
When your upper arid lower teeth
meet in harmony, we say that you have an
Seven bite. Most people desire an even bite"
for the sake of presenting an attractive
appearance. However, it's also important -
E for good digestion, nutrition, clear
: speech, and the proper formation of your
ja ws and face.
t '..I When your upper and lower. teeth do
not meet evenly, this is called malocclu-
sion. It can and does occur at any age; Certain types of maloc-
clusion cannot be prevented. They are inherited. For example,
the size of your teeth and the size of your jaws may have been-
handed down from your parents.
Other types of malocclusion are acquired. They are caused
by individual behavior, for instance: neglect of harmful dental
and eating habits may have caused the early loss of teeth
through decay. When a missing tooth is not replaced, the
remaining teeth drift but of position. Whatever the cause, mal-
occlusion can and should be corrected.

fied thousands of individuals by delivering state of the art,

Port



St.

Because of its strategic location, Port St. Joe is poised to take advan-
tage of the projected expansion of trade between the Southeastern U.S.,
Latin America and the Caribbean. The economies of many of our neigh-
bors to the south are expanding rapidly, and.for most of them the United
States is a
major trad- Puttifgfthe"
ing partner. P
The growth
of ocean 0


cargo
through,
Florida has

other region
in America,
requiring the


St.


Back n


oe


continued expansion of facilities at Florida ports.
What can we move through our port, once established? The possi-
,bilities are endless: Containers carrying textiles to and from Central
America and the Caribbean, automobiles and automotive parts from
.Mexico; building materials such as aggregate, cement and lumber; frozen
foods including poultry and seafood; freshfruits and vegetables from
Central America; exported rice, beans, wheat and other staple US prod-
ucts; manufactured housing, paper products and various bulk commodi-
ties, to name a few.
Port St. Joe has excellent transportation links between the ocean car-
riers and inland destinations, allowing for cheaper shipping rates.
Shippers will take advantage of our highway, rail and barge canal links to
the major metropolitan areas of the Southeast. And, we can offer person-
al, efficient service to shippers that cannot be matched in the larger
ports. In fact, current trends indicate that shippers now are looking for
smaller ports for exactly that reason.
All this adds up to plenty of reasons to put the Port back in Port St.
Joe.

Summer Leadership Academy


Graduates Local Principals


Gulf Principals Participate
While schools were taking a
break, two Gulf educators were
hard at work developing leadership
skills and learning new educational
improvement strategies. And their
"homework" isn't over yet.
The Council for Educational
Change sponsored a weeklong
Summer Leadership Academy in
Tampa from July 7-11 for more
than 120 principals, assistant prin-
cipals, teacher leaders and mentors
from all over the state. It was all
about developing leadership 'skills
that boost student achievement
and creating ongoing plans to
implement that leadership.
Carolyn Witten and Juanise
Williams of Port St Joe Middle
School were among the partici-
pants to attend and. can be con-
tacted at (850) 227-3211.
"The Council can be proud of
this Academy and the work they do
to improve education for all stu-
dents in Florida" said James
Warford, Chancellor of Education
in Florida. He also opened the ses-
sion.


Special Academy topics includ-
ed: data-driven decision-making;
implementing strategies to improve
reading; developing and strength-
ening leadership skills; empower-
ing staff to meet and exceed
achievement goals.
Participants spent consider-
able time working in an onsite com-
puter lab, concentrating on student
performance data. They analyzed
their school's information in detail
and charted improvement-stu-
dent-by-student, teacher-by-

Hats Off to the Sheriff's Office


On Thursday, April 24, just
before 9:00 p.m., I received a call
,from my sister-in-law, Betty. Her
husband Bill Rich, my brother, had
called her and reported motor trou-
ble on his fishing boat. He said he
was off Lake Wimico into Depot
Creek, and at this point his cell
phone failed. She tried to call him
back several times to no avail. She
also told me he seemed to be
breathing abnormally. (Bill' had
had bypass surgery about two
years ago. and this caused some
concern). I tried to think on the
positive line that he could, have
been trying to crank the engine
manually or could have been pad-
dling the boat.
Betty asked me if I would take
my son's boat and.go to his rescue,
to which I said yes and hung up
the phone. In a few seconds I aban-
doned this idea, not knowing how
much safety equipment was in the
boat and that it had not been run
for some time. This is when I
thought the Sheriffs Office was my
best bet.
The times I willgive.are docu-
mented from the Sheriffs dispatch
log. I reported the problem at 9:07


p.m. The dispatcher made a couple
of calls and Jake Richardson and
Bobby Player and I picked up the
Sheriffs big boat and headed to
Depot Creek landing. We arrived at
9:32 p.m., launched the boat and
headed toward the lake.
It was a dark, dark night.
Bobby Player stood by Jake and
used a hand held light to pan the
shore on either side. Jake panned
the shore also with a-light in the
roof of the boat. ,
We rounded the last bend and
there was Bill running,his trolling
motor in the middle of the creek.
The time was logged at 9:52 p.m.
The dispatcher called Betty and
kept her informed of our progress.
This rescue story had a happy end-
ing. 'My hat is off to our Sheriffs
Department and Jake Richards
and Bobby Player for this friendly
service rendered.
People needed to enjoy this
small town hospitality and friendly
people, serving and caring for one
another when help is needed. Soon
this will be gone with growth.
P.S. Sheriff, get the boys a
brighter light on the big boat.

Husband and Jones m


ble to go on the trip as winners of
Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative's
Youth Tour Contest. Each year, the
Cooperative sponsors the contest
for eleventh-graders whose parents
are members of GCEC. Contestants
are interviewed by a panel of three
judges from the electric cccooperati\ve
industry and two winners are cho-
sen to travel on an all-expenses-
paid trip to Washington, D. C. in
June, where they join other
eleventh-grade students from all
over the United States to tour our

led to Candace Little, daughter of
winners of Gulf Coast Electric Employee
Charlie Little, was eligible to go on
the trip by winning a statewide
essay contest sponsored by Florida
Electric Cooperatives Association.
FECA sponsors the annual contest
for children and grandchildren of
electric cooperative employees and

board members, since these stu-
dents are ineligible to compete in
their local electric cooperatives'
contests.
"We were proud to have Laura
Sand Ben represent Gulf Coast
SElectric Cooperative in Washington,
and equally proud that Candace
Swon the statewide essay contest

as Florida's representative," GCEC
S Manager of Marketing and Member
Services Michael White said.
The Washington, D. 'C. Youth
Tour Program has been in' exis-
tence since 1957 When co-ops sent
students to Washington, D.C. to
work during the summer. By 1964,
'the program was catching on, and
the National Rural 'Electric
n touring Cooperative Association began td
coordinate the efforts of the co-ops.
Since then, thousands of young
people have experienced this once-
uth Tour in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit
Sc0opera- our nation's capitol and learn
