They are, quite simply, the vil-
lage.
Sure, that's a cliche that long
ago began to fray about the edges,
but it is hard to find one more apt.
They ARE the village.
To more than 2,000 young-
sters, 150 or so teachers, adminis-
trators and School Board members
who are, understandably, the main
players in public education.
But just as much of any pro-
duction transpires, is crafted,
behind the scenes, these hardy
folks provide. the backdrop, the
landscape, the environment in
which learning can and does, if the
district's FCAT scores are any indi-
cation, occur.
They make the whole produc-
tion go, from the wheels on the bus
to the lights in the classroom to the
foods onto the plates in the cafete-
ria..
"Teachers are the backbone of
education, but you need more than
a backbone." said Wewahitchka
Middle School principal Pam Lister.
"Teachers do a wonderful job,. but
non-instructional staff fill in the
gaps and do it just as wondrously.
They are the ones that keep the
ship afloat."
In educational jargon, they are
the support staff or non-instruc-
tional employees, but such simple,
monikers belie 'the value, the
hours, the dedication, the expert-
ise, the critical roles these folks
choose to play each weekday.
Simply for "their" kids, without
desire for the spotlight. Orchards
of apples could be pruned to honor
their contributions.
"We couldn't operate without
these people," said Don Rich,
director of transportation for Gulf
County Schools. '"It would be
impossible."
And so each year, a select
group are chosen as "Support
Employee of the Year" at their
school or work sites.
At some juncture later this
'spring, one will be selected as
"District' Non-lnstructional
Employee of the Year" and will
compete against those from the
state's 66 other school districts.
The Fab Nine for 2004, in
alphabetical order, are:
Angie Benavides, from the
district, is secretary for Deputy
Superintendent Temple Watson.
Benavides has been with the dis-
trict for 10 years.
Betty Bouington, the book-
keeper at Port St. Joe High School
who 'has been with the district
some three decades.

It could easily be argued that the technology
superhighway can be a toll road.
Last week Gulf County Schools received a signifi-
cant boost .in handling the freight.
In a competitive grant process involving all 67 dis-
tricts in the state, the district emerged last week with
notice that ,it will receive' two grants totalling $600,,000
to bolster technology offerings in the county's schools.
All.told, in the past half dozen or so years, the dis-
trict has received $1'.72 million in what are now known
as Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT)I
grants.
Which, for-a rural district with a budget, including
all local, state and federal funds, of between $12-$14
million, \is so crucial as state and federal rules and.
mandates, such as federal No Child Left Behind legis-
lation, ensure technology must be a touchstone of
public education.
'The world is revolving around technology," said
Sara Joe Wooten, the district's supervisor for curricu-
lum. "We want to give our kids equal opportunity.
(These grants) helps put things on an equal footing.
"We can do things for our teachers and kids that
big districts can do with their local tax dollars and
(school funding from the state)."
The local grants, which are federal dollars passed
through the Florida Department of Education, were
awarded from among 117 applications from districts
around the state.
And to receive not just one grant, but two, well, for
a rural district that is roughly the equivalent of hitting
a Fantasy Five.
Particularly when considering the fact that the dis-


Wanda Nixon


trict, under the state's, basic formula for funding pub-
lic schools, received $15,000 in technology enhance-
ment dollars, which in the world of technology is akin
to a soda and a bag of potato chips.
The two most recent grants are earmarked for sep-
arate projects in the district, with a significant amount
of the dollars for both grants and projects aimed at
staff development and training,
One $300,000 grant will be used to address read-
ing among ESE (exceptional education) students, pro-
viding support for teachers in reading instruction.
With the scores of ESE students for the first time
counting toward school grades under the state grading
formula next year, enhancing ESE education takes on
even more import.
"It was apparent we needed to step forward with
some technology for our teachers to help with ESE
reading," Wooten said.
The ultimate goal is to establish computer labs,
capable of serving up to a dozen or so youngsters at a
time, for ESE students at each of the district's six
schools.
That means computers, software' and infrastruc-
ture.
Wooten said the hope is to have the labs in place
for the 2004-2005 school year, though. logistical issues
- such as when the grant dollars are released to the
district, the bidding process for purchasing equip-
ment, etc. could alter the precise timeline.
The software to be used is crucial for the overall
mission, a multi-sensorial system, it will include head-
phones and touch screens to allow, for example, stu-
dents to listen to the sounds of words or to touch and

9 Employees Selected from Gulf County Schools as 2004 Representatives


A county employee was killed

County Employee

Killed In Wednesday

Morning Accident
by Tim Croft
The county lost one of the fam-
ily Wednesday morning.
A county employee was killed
shortly before 10 a.m. when a train
collided with the road grader he
was using at the Odena Division of
Forestry offices on U.S. 98.
The man was pronounced dead
at the scene.
Details were sketchy at press
time, and the man's identity had
not been released pending notifica-
tion of next of kin.
According to those on the
scene, the man had just completed
grading one side of the railroad
tracks that run behind the Odena
tower when he crossed over the
tracks and was struck by a west-
bound train.


trict maintenance department for
three years.
Jewell' Hopper, a teacher's
aide in the physical education
department of Port St. Joe
Elementary.
Brenda, Jordan, secretary
and record-keeper at Wewahitchka
High School. Jordan has been with
the district for 15 years.
* Wanda Nixon, secretary, at
Port St. Joe Middle school.
Mary Ann Peak, who has
been with the district for nearly
seven years and is currently
records clerk at Wewahitchka
Elementary.
Pam Stiles, the honoree from.
the transportation department.
Stiles, who has been with the dis-
trict 11. years, drives a bus in
Wewahitchka. ,
Jane Wade, who has been
with the district seven years and is
a teacher's aide at Wewahitchka
Middle School.


As a group they are a cross-
section.
A few with the district a short
time, others long enough to be able
to climb any student's family tree.
One safely carries students to
and from' school; others record
their presence once they've
traipsed through the front door.
They answer phones and keep
offices that oft times resemble an
agitated ant hill running smoother
than ice cream on a sore throat.
They work in the .classroom,
providing teachers assistance in
myriad ways, and make all those
things in the classroom, from com-
puters to lights actually work.
"So much of the day-to-day
running of a school is in the little
things, the details," Lister said.
And in excelling at massaging'
those details, in fully filling those
gaps which must be filled, these
nine also provide a sample of a
broader group, of district employ-


ees.

souls who work to make the school
environment safe and clean, who
cook and serve the meals, who
drive the bus routes and fix the air.
conditioning when summer arrives
in March.
"They say it takes a village to.
raise a child, well it takes every-
body to educate a child," said Sissy,
Worley, the district's finance offi-
cer. "There are a'lot of things peo-
ple don't see in the classroom."
And, like elves at Christmas, it
doesn't all happen ,solely during
school hours.
Custodians are hard at it long
after the last child has left campus.
There isn't an extra-curricular
activity, be it a field trip or sports,
event that a bus driver, or two or
three, is involved.
"Our county is very fortunate
to have these people," Rich said.
"We couldn't ask for higher-quality


people.
"They take it personally. I've
never seen a crew do all they, do,.
help every way possible to make
our teachers and students have a
good environment, and do such a
good job and take such pride in it."
Pride in the work, undoubted-
ly, a search for attention, forget
about it.
There was resistance from
some corners just to have their pic-.
ture in the paper.
And they aren't doing it for the
money, there are few jobs in public
education which allow folks to sock
away the dough for that vacation
loft in the Caribbean.
It's all about their kids.
"As far as recognition, they'd
just as soon do without it," Rich
Ssaid.. "They operate under the
radar." e
Here's to putting them on the
screen, at least for one week.

And to be just a bit dumbfounded how they did it.
For whatever side of the politics of the war in Iraq on which you fall,
there must still be a tip of the hat, a salute, an extension of deepest

This was part of the "weekend warrior" package and duty has no
sense of tidiness. So they -stood up and were counted.
If this doesn't define heroism, bravery, courage, I have the wrong dic-
tionary .
And I could not think of few finer communities for any of them to
come home to than Gulf County, where, in my too brief experience, there
is. as much, if not more, reverence of those in uniform, past or present,
than any locale I've ever lived.
They are always right there- on the sleeve, a county, a community,
staunchly wearing the colors of its country. ...
A community- that will embrace the men and women who served, not
necessarily with fancy parades or keys to the city, but with a handshake,
a slap on the back, a smile, a hello, adsimple thanks. ` l |
In other words, something human, hospitable, a reminder to these
folks that they are indeed finally, actually, back from ,a place that was
often inhumane, inhospitable.
In hindsight,, I would say I've been passively patriotic, enjoying the, ,
freedoms 'of my world withutJ fully setting foot, establishing real pur-
chase, on the foundation at their root.

Topeka, Kansas, than we do
here......he'll pure embarrass you!
I give Dr. King "a little more
room" than most. for a multitude
or reasons. One 'is he is old! He
can be cantankerous. And he rel-
ishes being at that point in life
where he can say and do whatever
he pleases....
'Course, the scary part about
Dr. King is in the last few years
what he is saying has started to
make perfectly good sense to me!
Another reason I give Doc lots
of leeway is because he used to
take care of me. He was one of the
first people I met when I came to
Gulf County. He listened to ,a cou-
ple of my stories about pre-dawn
cow milkings, Saturday afternoon
goat ropings and the Carroll.
County Rabbit Skinning Rodeo
and said, "Boy, we have got to find
you a special place to stay if you're
aiming to roost among us!"
I lived that first year in a store
he, owned downtown on Reid
Avenue. Rent free! I called home
and declared, "Mom, you'll be
proud of me, I have the largest lir-
ing room in Northwest Florida!"
I figured I'd live there forev-
er.....I was out front, sunning on


the park bench a year or so later
when Doc came down for a visit.
"Kes, I'm renting the store to the
Salvation Army. They are actually
going to pay me real cash. How
soon can you move out?"
I've been mad at the Salvation
Army for over 'thirty years now!
And I still remind the good Doctor
every chance I get that he "turned
me out into the cold world" for'a
paltry few pieces of silver.
But the main reason I give Dr.
King a little more "allowance" than
usual is because back in 1971 I
near 'bout killed his only son.
Chris was a junior in high
school. He decided that he wanted
to see where I grew up, meet Leon
and visit with my folks. Shoot, I
was happy to have some company
on the trip. Chris spent the entire
summer with us!
He.;fit right in. He was just
crazy enough to get along with
Leon. And just polite enough to
make a good impression on Mom.
When I worked, he worked. When I
dated, he dated. When I went to
town, he went to town. It was real-
ly going pretty well.... until we
started working on the barn!
Chick King (no relation) kept a


few cows of mine mixed in with his
herd. He wanted to .enlarge his
barn. Chick was a great friend and
mentor. I hopped right to it when
he asked if I'd help. Chris hopped
right on it because I didn't give him
a choice.
We weren't just adding a small
section, mind you. We were actual-
ly building a barn and attaching it
to a "fair sized" shed that Chick
had been using since he. bought
the place. We built the trusses on
the ground and then used the bed
of Chick's pick up and a long pole
to hoist the rafters into place.
Chris was the youngest and the
quickest. We naturally sent him to
the top. There were twenty-six
trusses roughly in place. We were
working at a furious pace and fig-
ured we'd get'em all up and then
secure each as we readied, them for
the tin.
Chris moved down to the shed
and pulled out the one nail that
attached the new trusses to the old
'part of the building. Folks, I ain't
for sure .what happened next.
Maybe the wind blew. Or Chris
shifted his weight. Or one of those

ce Dr. Wayne ,was active in civic
i- affairs, in addition to area-wide
medicine. He was an active mem-
ie ber of the Rotary Club, and was
n- always "Johnny-on-the-spot" at
.i- local" football games. if one of the.
:d players went down with an injury,
al or was just out of breath. It didn't
Ll. matter which team the injured
player was !on, either;
n,
rt DR. WAYNE TOLD me, near
the end of his career at the 'hospi-
tal, that he had delivered 2500'


babies, since coming to Port St.
Joe and all 2500 were born alive
and healthy.
That's quite a record.
He was the first doctor to
.operate on me. "
;I remember just as& plain as
day. He'interrupted his Christmas
celebration, to operate on me for a
hernia. I got the paper out' two
days before Christmas and Dr.
Wayne performed the surgery on
Christmas Eve.
His bill was for $600-a mere
pittance for the same operation,
today.
Dr. Wayne and I got together
for a re-run a few.years later on a
Labor Day weekend, too.
He had been observing me for
the weekend for a possible case of
appendicitis,. when I phoned him
at his home one Sunday morning
and told him I was hurting.
He said, "I'm headed for the
hospital to make 'rounds. Meet me
there."


He ended up taking out my
appendix that .Sunday morning,
when both of us were supposed to
be in church.
Dr. Wayne was like that; if you
needed hird, he was always ready!,
Dr. Wayne was always very
"low key" and soft spoken. He was
always ready with. a laugh or a.
smile. He actually had a long
crease on the side 'of his face
which was put there by 'the per-
petual smile he wore at all times.

HE WAS A "FITMURE" in the
medical community of.. Port St.
Joe, for many years. A person did-
n't just go to .see a doctor in our
city,; he. went to see either "Dr.
Wayne" or "Dr. Joe".
'It will be a lpng time 'before: we
will ever see such qa dedicated tan-
dem of medical servants, 'again.
They both served, us equally well.
and they both deserve our uncon-
ditional gratitude and respect.

New Sacred Heart Helicopter Offers Options to Gulf County EMS


by Carly Johnson
Some of the Gulf County EMS
folks got a chance to sharpen their
skills on Jan. 6 as Sacred Heart
Health System's new AIRHeart-2
life-flight helicopter landed on the
Port St. Joe High School track.
Equipped with a new, state-of-
the-art ambulance since October,
EMS personnel have increased
their training to improve patient
care with the new updated equip-
ment and have participated in
mock emergencies designed to
hone their skills. The staff also ran
scenarios designed to coordinate
the compatibility of Gulf EMS pro-
cedures and those of the life-flight
service to aid both organizations in
preparing for serious emergencies.
"With the addition of new
equipment and medications on our
ambulances, we wanted to make
sure there would be a smooth tran-
sition of patient care from our units

squirrel-ly Cunningham boys ran
over and pushed.....the first truss
fell over against the next one and
then they slowly rolled over to the
next one....it was like a stampede of
rafters after that....
The whole thing toppled over!
People, I'm telling you, Chris
was forty-eight and a: half feet up in
the air when he started the ride
down! My whole life flashed before
my eyes! I got to remembering
terms like involuntary manslaugh-
ter, accessory after the fact, willful
and unlawful endangerment of a
minor,, corpus delicti, writ of
habeas corpus and where was I
going to hide the corpus?
Chris was fighting to get his
legs un-entwined with the cross
boards as the assortment of truss-
es, braces and body parts hurled
groundward! My heart didn't just
stop it fell out of my body and
plopped on the sawdust at my feet!
I saw Doc coming after me clear as
a bell with one of those long probes
that he used to pull teeth out with
back in the '30's!
You've never seen such a
crash! Boards busted and flew
everywhere, cows stampeded, dust
rose fifty feet in the air and then
complete silence.
I mean silence like you ain't
never heard!
S How am I going t6 explai6"this
.one back home? I couldn't see a
thing as the dust drifted over me."
but I was figuring if I cut out right
now I could -be in Wontover, South
Dakota, m a day or so. Nobody's
knows me there. I could change my
name. Let my hair grow out; Get a
job in the pool hall..... I was just
fixin' to break and run when Chick
spoke, "Chris", his voice was shak-
ing, "are you alright?"
"Yes sir," Chris' voice was shak-
ing, "I think so."
Whewl You talk about dodging.
a bullet! Now, if I could just find my
heart....,
Dr. ,ing didn't choke me over
this event or charge me any back
rent. So you see, I give him lots and
lots of leeway for "understanding".
'-Course. come to think of it. he
never let Chris or either of his two,
daughters v\'er go off with *me'

Library Fund Gets $50,000 Boost From


duPont Foundation; Hits $111,000


by Tim Croft
The Friends of the Gulf County
Libraries, Inc., are on fire.
Just check the. thermometer.
The "Friends" just sizzled past
the $111,000 mark in their fund-
raising campaign for expansion of
the Port St. Joe facility, a number
impressive enough of its own made
more so by the logistics behind the
number.
What was estimated to take
two years is now well past the
halfway mark well in less than half
that time.
"We have our work cut out for
us," said Bob .Faliski, treasurer of
the "Friends" building committee.
"It's not over until it's over."
And the chubby lady is closer
to singing after the Alfred I. duPont
Foundation contributed this week a
heavy check worth $50,000.
Robert Nedley, a member and
director at the Alfred I. duPont
Foundation, noted that the contri-
bution to the Port St. Joe Library
was among the $1.5 million the
foundation contributes throughout
the Southeast each year.
He added that the community
outreach to date had made an
impression with the foundation's
board of directors.
"I commend you on the money
you've raised,", Nedley" said to a
group of "Friends" who gathered
Tuesday morning to take the check
off his hands.
"It made our job (of convincing
the other directors) much easier." -
And the library will forever bear
the name of Alfred I. duPont.
The "Friends" building commit-
tee decided, by unanimous vote, to
name the 1,800-square-foot, give or
take a foot, expansion it intends to
build the Alfred I. duPont Florida
History and Genealogy Center.
"We thought it was a wonderful
idea," said Jean Faliski, both a
"friend" and librarian at the St. Joe
facility. "He's done so much for the
community."
And left behind, at least in the
permanently posthumous sense,
much in the way,of recognition for
the enormous, and varied, contri-
butions duPont made to Florida,
this area of the state, during his
lifetime, including, as one example,
U.S. 98, or the Gulf Coast Highway.
Nedley noted that outside of
the duPont Bridge in Bay County,
there are no structures in this area
named for Alfred I duPont. until, at

least, the library expansion is com-
plete.
"We, in great humility, appreci-
ate the decision to name the addi-
tion after Mr. duPont," Nedley said.
"The impact that man had on the
state is tremendous.
"We're very proud to have
something in this community
named in his. honor."
The impact of the foundation
.on that red running up the ther-
mometer in front of the Port St. Joe
,Public Library was striking.
The "Friends" aimed to raise
$150,000 to expand areas at the
Port St. Joe Library devoted to
genealogy, Florida history and liter-
acy.
The original pledge to the coun-
ty the landowner in question, the
county will bid the expansion con-
struction out and oversee the proj-
ect was that, it would take two
years to raise that sum.
The "Friends" fund-raising
campaign ratcheted up last March.
Therefore, by having raised
$111,414 as of Tuesday, the
"Friends" have reached 74 percent


of their fund target in about 38 per-
cent of the time it was estimated to
take.
"We are just astounded," said
Neatie Witter, chairman of the
"Friends" building committee.
"We're confident we will reach our
goal in the time frame (we prom-
ised). .
'This community has backed
this effort 100 percent."
That hit from the duPont folks,
a home run in any park in the land,
served as an exclamation point to a
campaign punctuated by such sup-
port -from the fledgling days of the
effort.
To date, 53 memorium
,plaques, which will be affixed to
bricks lining the interior walls of
the expansion, have been sold.
The "Friends" have space to
accommodate 2,000 bricks.
"We have plenty of bricks left,"
Witter said.
And such outreach from the
community, said George Vickery,
director of the Northwest Florida
Regional Libraries, said is essen-
tial.


"You just can't depend on gov-
ernment and taxes to keep momen-
tum going" for libraries, Vickery
said. "You have to have the people
who know about the library, who
use the library, who recognize its
significance."
And there has been no short-
age of historic items and/or memo-
rabilia to place in the Florida histo-
ry section of the expansion.
Witter and Faliski said they
had received offers to place a vari-
ety of items pertinent to local and
state history at the library when
the expansion opens.
Nedley made such an offer
Tuesday about several items in his
. possession.
"We are getting a lot of calls to
place things in the library," Witter
said. "And that is what this expan-
sion is about, history."
The donations that have
steadily pushed the red up the
thermometer include those from

Historical Society Holds Annual Meeting


by Tim Croft
They were the roads most trav-
eled at least in the territorial
days.
Bobby Hurst, vice president of
the Bay County Historical Society,
was the keynote speaker last week


the initial segments of the meeting
delved in 'the future.
For starters, the officers for the
coming year were inducted by
County Judge Fred Witten.
Charlotte Pierce was installed
as president for another year, with


renovate the Cape San Blas
Lighthouse as a museum and park.
Paraphrasing Larry Wells,
there has been plenty of hurrying
to slow down.
The Historical Society has a
$300,000 state historical grant


torical grant for the next fiscal year
but that award will depend on the
level to which state lawmakers
fund historic preservation projects
during their legislative session this
spring.
And a bid for a $35,000 state
architectural and engineering grant
will be heard by a state panel later
this spring.
The sticking point right now is

enter into a lease with the county
for the lighthouse footprint, there-
by.preventing any of the renovation
work from moving forward.
This could become a particu-
larly sticky wicket since state grant
funds must be used within a spe-
cific period of time.
"We are waiting on the Air
Force," Pierce said.
For his part, Hurst dived into a
quick look at the road situation
before the state became a state and
in a broader way conveyed the
importance of holding on to what is
left of this part of Florida's heritage.
"They aren't the most exciting
thing .. and they are often over-
looked," Hurst said. "But they are
part of our legacy and deserve to be
recognized."
Roads in this part of the state
were largely non-existent until the
early years of the 1800s,.when the
military figured, hey, good roads
might be a good thing to move
through what was then a harsh
environment. ': '


In the 1820s came the military
road from Pensacola to St.
Augustine, but no arteries to Port
St. Joe or Apalachicola.
The Apalachicola to Marianna
Military Road came sometime later,
a footprint of which still remains
east of Tyndall AFB.
Hurst noted that opposed to
Jackson County, where farming
played havoc on old roads, the rel-
. atively undeveloped nature of Gulf
County has ensured that many old
roads are still clearly evident.
"Luckily, Gulf County still has
a lot of these roads preserved, but
(with) development ... I fear these
roads could be lost forever," Hurst
said, noting, as one example, the
Old Salt Works Road.
By turning some of these old
roads into recreational greenways,
with historic designation, some
might be saved as, development
takes hold.
"Good luck in what's going to
happen in the next decade," Hurst'
concluded his talk.

The winners of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Read-A-Thon, Anna Redman and Michelle Hand, second and third from
left, each received a $100 check from the St. Joe Natural Gas Company.


St. Joe Natural Gas Awards


MLK Read-A-Thon Winners


by Carly Johnson
Just as Martin Luther King, Jr.
Day has become a hallmark day in
American history, two Gulf County
students learned the poignancy and
significance this birthday has on a
nation, a community and even an
individual.
Anna Redman, 11, and Michelle
Hand, .14, were the 2004 winners of
the annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr. Read-A-Thon/Essay
Contest on Jan. 20, hosted by the
NAACP and the Gulf County Public
-Library Family Literacy/FAMU
Partnership at the Gulf County
Library. ,
While working on their essays,
these girls got a chance to learn,
more about the life.and legacy of the,
national icon and, for their efforts,
,won $100 each from the St. Joe
Natural Gas Co.
"I was really surprised I won,"'
sailt Redman, a fifth-grader at Port*
St. Joe Elementary School. "After I
won, my teacher, Ms. Capps, read
my essay to the entire class.
Everybody went 'whoa' at the end
and it made me feel really good."
With an essay entitled "Why We.
Honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,"
Hand, anr eighth-grader at
Wewahitchka Middle School, had
similar feelings about receiving the
award and said she learned that
King did more 'than perform the "I
Have a Dre.am" speech that earrgd
him acclaim during the Civil Rights'
movement in the 1960s
"I thought he just did the one
speech at first, but I came to find
out he did a lot more for civil rights,


and he wanted most to do it all
peacefully," Hand explained. "Now I
know how much he sacrificed for
black people and I hope to be more
like him."


Charged with researching the
life and teachings of King, both win-
ners .used books and the'Internet to
gain insight and detailed informa-
tion about the cause-s and effects of
his work. '
In typical teen and pre-teen
fashion, Hand and Redman, who
have aspirations, of becoming an
actress and a veterinarian, iespec-
tively, plan to hit the mall for a
shopping spree with their prize
money.

It's having the personnel with training and experience to
do the job right.

order requirements. The decision
by the ARPC is essentially a green
light for Arvida/ St. Joe Company
to move forward.
TAX EXEMPTION FOR RED LINE
Commissioners voted to adopt
a tax exemption ordinance for Red
Line Equipment, Co. The ordinance
will provide Red Line ad valorem
tax exemption for a period of ten
years.
Tax exemption periods are.
meant to help stimulate the eco-
nomic impact a company will have
on the community by providing ad
valorem tax relief.
ANIMAL CONTROL
The board held a special meet-
ing prior to its regular one to dis-
cuss animal control. During that
session commissioners determined
that fees generated from animal
control activities will be used by the
county to offset cost associated
with animal control.
The commission also increased
fees charged for violation of the ani-
mal control ordinance. Examples of
this include fines for allowing ani-
mals to roam at-large, unvaccinat-
ed animals, cruelty to animals, etc.
and range in charge from $25 to
$100.
Repeat offenders will find that
charges will be doubled for subse-
quent offenses.
IN OTHER BUSINESS
-Bill Kennedy, Preble Rish
Engineers, reported that repairs -to
several' county' roads will cost
$9,685, These roads have sub-
grade faults and were brought to


question during recent board meet-
ings.
-Commissioners approved sev-
eral recommendations from the
Planning Development and Review
Board for development of parcels of
property within the county. A total
of just over. 100 development units
were addressed.
-Approved Kesley Colbert,
David Horton and Benjamin Ranie
to continue as Gulf County
appointees on the Apalachee
Regional Planning Council.
-Heard a report from TDC
Director, Paula Pickett, that the
park committee has finished an
evaluation of the county parks and
will soon have a report on needs
and prioritizing of those-needs to
present to the commission. She
also reported that bed tax revenues
for the month of December were up
18% over last year.


Grant Dollars From Pg 1

trace the letters in the words they
read.
"Anytime a child can use as
many of the five senses as possible
to learn, information is better
retained," Wooten said.
The other $300,000 grant will
be used to upgrade and support
the current system teachers use for
student grades.
Currently, while teachers
record grades "on their in-class
computers and the school technol-
ogy staff is charged with forward-
ing grades to the district MIS office,
there is a paper trail and repetitive
tasks required between teachers
and school site technology proces-
sors to reconcile grades.
With the new dollars, the dis-
trict will be able to establish a sys-


tem infrastructure by which the
grades can be sent directly to the
district MIS office.
"It will be a much quicker
method," Wooten said.
Another beauty of the system
is that it. will also allow parents,
with a password specific to their
child, to access their child's grade
and keep abreast of their child's
progress throughout the year.
Attendance records may also
be part of the package.
Though many households in
the county do not have a computer,
there are computers accessible for
the public at the public libraries
and the Opportunity Centers ii
each high school where parents
can log-on,
Clearly, with such a system,
security will be paramount.
"Security is of great concern,"
Wooten said. "We intend to make


sure no one has access to '(another
child's) grades."
Wooten said a pilot school, yet
to be selected, will initiate the new
system, to allow for the kinks to be
smoothed and staff to become
acclimated prior to going district-
wide with the upgraded system.
Wooten said the hope was to
.have the pilot program set up dur-
ing the' 2004-2005 school year,
provided the logistics a key one
ensuring proper security of the
system don't slow the process.
"It's all wonderful but it's scary
too. because there is so much to
do," Wooten said.
The two latest cache of dollars
continues a trend of the past sever-
al years in which the district has
burnished' its technology offerings
through the competitive EETT
grants and other pots.of technology
funding available to school dis-


tricts, but which are especially
valuable to small rural districts.
Gulf District Schools, among a
network of programs, provides
training for, MOUS (Microsoft
Office) certification and for items
such as PowerPoint, Excel and
Microsoft Word.
A community technology litera-
cy grant is enhancing adult educa-
tion. Basic computer skills in
Microsoft Office are taught daily.
And those are just a few exam-
ples. ,
"There is a lot going 6n but
there is a lot the district needs
which is why these competitive
(EETT) grants are so important,"
Wooten said.
"When you see 'the teachers
and students excited about the
things we can give them (it makes
all the work that goes into the
grant process) worth it."

Dr. May and His Staff


Give from Their Hearts


by Carly Johnson
While some only get the feeling
of giving during the Christmas
holidays, Dr. Frank "Dusty" May,
dental hygienists Anealia Bush.
and Linda Wright, and the rest of
May's staff have extended their
good-deeds to help area residents
in need of dental care on
Valentine's Day.
On Friday, Feb. 13, May will
close his practice to his regular
patients and open it to those who,
under other circumstances, could
not afford dental care, for the
fourth annual "Dentist with a
Heart" day.
As February is dental health
month, May wants to give back to
the community and give everyone
an opportunity to have a healthy
smile. During this day of giving,
the office will offer treatments
including teeth cleaning, x-rays,
fillings, extractions, diagnostics
and pain control.
"I started this program four
years ago after being inspired by
articles I saw in a few trade jour-
nals about other dentists doing
the same thing in other parts of
the country," May said. "My staff
and I were wanting to do some-
thing to give back and help the'
community, and this seemed the
perfect way to do it. All of us take
an unpaid day to do this and hav-
ing it around Valentine's Day
makes it all that much more spe-
cial."
With numerous patients travel
from Franklin, Gulf and Bay coun-
ties to participate in the program,
May and his staff have now gone
from a first-come, first-serve basis
to having those in need send in
letters to the office explaining
what their dental requests are and
then scheduling appointments for
them.
"I am going to attempt to see
20 patients that day while the two
hygienists are scheduling as many
as 10 patients each," May
explained. "Scheduhling patients in.


30-minute intervals, we are aim-
ing to help as many as 40 patients
in one 10-hour day. It is a lot of
work, but very rewarding and grat-
ifying."
Since he first started spread-
ing the word about this year's clin-
ic, May says he has already
received several letters, but also
noted that spots are still available
and appointments will be made on
a need basis,. followed by the


send letters to us quickly wh

Sust Bait & Monitor.
When you're talking about pro-
tecting your home and family,
Sdo you want a baiting and
monitoring system, or do you
want 'em dead?
Bait & Monitoring systems offered by some of the national
chains and franchises can take YEARS to work. They use
a small piece of wood a piece of tomato stake to try to
lure termites away from your home. That's like using a sin-
gle jelly bean to lure a child away from a candy store.
Donnie's Total Pride Pest Control offers the Termidor solution
to termites. Termidor is a proven, effective and safe insecticide
that has been proven 100% effective against termites
*Kills the whole colony, not just the termites bait systems can
manage to attract.
*Wipes out termites in 3 months or less.
*Keeps killing termites for 5 years OR MORE!
*No danger to your family. And it's odorless!
*Retreatment & Repair Warranties Available.
We also control, If you're not asking for Termidor,
Rats, Mice, Fleas,
Spiders, Roaches,
Ants, Ticks, Silverfish you're asking for trouble.

periods to go see Elliot
Shackleford, a pianist, per form at
the auditorium of Port St. 4Joe
Elementary School. It turned out
to be quite an exciting event as Mr.
Shackleford entertained us for an
hour show music from around the
world, to classic Disney favorites
including 'The Lion King, Just
Can't Wait to be King" as well as
many others. But he also made it
a point that he was living his
dream and that we could choose

'6adi at"His Best' He is her Prince. She, his P i inc e He loved her
into his arms. She loved him into hers. Boaz took Ruth as his bride.
She took him as her groom. This Old Testament book of Ruth is quite
a story.
It is both a passionate & powerful portrayal of love. It is also inter-
woven with personal friendship, devotion, & integrity. Ultimately, the
story illustrates God's love for His bride (His people). Yet, these par-
ticular lovers (Ruth & Boaz) are an encouragement to other men &
women.
My bride is beautiful. Beyond that she is precious. Right now,
though our hearts be one, we are separated by over 1100 miles. Our
love for one another has not changed (except that it is deeper than
ever before).
Kim & I will hold each other again, soon. The time is coming. Even
beLter, the Lord Christ has paid the price to come for His precious
bride. Your loved ones (in Christ) you will see again! Wow, ain't
love grand!!

from

Elementary
School -- ---

By Lori Price good or bad, accepted or rejected,
The formation of the 'self- that the world is a hostile or
image begins very early in a child friendly place. Self-image is fur-
and is largely the product of rela- their developed and modified later
tionships with parents and early by others in the family and, as the
caretakers. It is the parent who child ventures outside the family,
makes the child feel she or he is by other groups and individuals.

Whether the child will be a
confident, self-assured person or
a fearful, guilt-ridden one depends
very much on the treatment he or
she receives. Avoid labeling. If the
child's self-image is that she is bad
or not worth much, there is a ten-
dency to live up to that expecta-
tion. Persons with low self-esteem
expect to be stepped on by others
because they feel they're of little
worth. .Expecting the worst, they
invite it and usually get it.
Perhaps the, most basic pre-
scription for assuring a child's
feeling of self-worth is a generous,
dose of parental love and tender-
ness-that "unconditional positive
regard." .The emphasis is on total
acceptance of ;the child:
Acceptance is easy, if the child
always does what the parent,
wants. But .total acceptance
means that even ,Vwhen the child
does something undesirable, the
parent still shows acceptance for
the child while conveying displeas-
ure for what the child did.
To build a healthy self-image
in a child, appreciate him for what.
he is--not for, what he does.
Children need to feel worthwhile.
but many don't. Feeling worth-
while comes from an abundance o1
love and attention.
