Incumbents Rule in Gulf County


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor

Eight of every 10 registered voters
in Gulf County leaned heavily toward
incumbents for the next four years.
County commissioners Carmen
McLemore and Bill Williams coasted
to easy victories while sitting Sheriff
Joe Nugent garnered a healthy lead.
All three earned four more years in
office as 80 percent of the county's vot-
ers cast ballots, more than 50 percent
before Tuesday's opening of the polls.
In the one local race not involving
an incumbent, former county commis-
sioner Warren Yeager held off political
newcomer Barbara Radcliff to return
to the District 5 seat.
All results are unofficial. There
remained 13 provisional ballots filled

Reinforcement



for Stump Hole



on the Way


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor

Every major storm out of
the gulf raises concerns about
whether the rock revetment at
the Stump Hole area of County
30-E will hold and residents
of St. Joseph Peninsula will be
stranded in their homes.
A series of positive signs in
the past week point to reinforce-
ments on the way for the lone
roadway leading to the penin-
sula.
The county was notified
by the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection that
after nearly a year of discussion
and assessment the agency has
issued a Notice of Intent to issue
a permit to reinforce some 525
feet of revetment at the apex of
the Stump Hole.
And the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, which with U.S. Fish
and Wildlife has been looking at
effects on the breeding habitat
for gulf sturgeon, stated in a
letter received by the county on
Tuesday that it has determined
effects are likely minor, and
though the project might have an
impact, it would not "adversely
effect" gulf sturgeon habitat.
"The notice of intent to issue
the permit means it could be as
early as 14 days that we have
the permit," said county admin-
istrator Don Butler. "That's good
news.
The Corps of Engineers said
though it reserves the right to


continue to examine the issue
of gulf sturgeon habitat, the let-
ter received this week indicated
the Corps' involvement likely
only would represent a seven-
day additional period before the
permit would be issued to the
county.
The county has been attempt-
ing to reinforce the Stump
Hole, which consistently has
been breached and caused the
roadway to close during storms
bringing high wave action and
heavy surf. The road has washed
out twice during this year's hur-
ricane season, and neither of
those storms came within 100
miles of Gulf County.
Late last year, the county
received $2.6 million in federal
pass-through Transportation
Regional Incentive Program
(TRIP) funds for reinforcing the
Stump Hole.
The cost is high.
Each foot of reinforcement
under the design crafted by the
coastal engineering company
that designed the ongoing pen-
insula beach restoration project
would cost $4,532.
The original design called for
reinforcing 1,300 feet encom-
passing nearly the entire Stump
Hole area, but the $2.6 million
in TRIP funds will cover only the
proposed 525 feet.
"We are looking now at other
sources of funding," Butler said.
The design, which Butler said

Knights Give



Bikes to Kids

By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
Knights are generally associated with heroic and
chivalrous deeds.
So it's only fitting that Port St. Joe's Knights of
Pythias carry on that noble tradition.
Last Thursday, the civic organization donated
nearly 30 used bicycles to the "Bikes for Boys and
Girls of Gulf County" project.
The project, sponsored by Gulf Correctional
Institute and North Florida Child Development Inc.,
provides bicycles to underprivileged children in our
area.
The bicycles will be transported to the Gulf Forestry
Camp, where they will be refurbished.
Knights of Pythias members collected the bikes
over a two-month period.
Bonnie Bell, the organization's master at arms, said
he scouted his neighborhood on Sundays for aban-
doned or unused bicycles.
To sweeten the donation, Knights of Pythias chan-
cellor commander Clarence Monette presented North
Florida Child Development Inc. director Sharon
Gaskin with a $105 cash donation.
Gaskin said area guidance counselors are identify-
ing bicycle recipients. Contributing organizations also
identify children in need.
This year's project goal is 200 bicycles. Local fire
departments will collect old, new and used bicycles
until Dec. 10.
The first round of bicycles will be distributed on
Dec. 20 at the Christmas celebration in Lake Alice
Park in Wewahitchka.

About the Knights of Pythias


The first Knights of Pythias
Lodge 77 organized in Port
St. Joe on July 18, 1912.
The Lodge building, then
located at 216 Ave. C, was
moved to its present location
in 1929 from Quincy.
In 1969, the Lodge was
renamed to honor Raymond
A. Dreisbach Sr., the first
Grand Chancellor of the
State of Florida from Port
St. Joe.
Justus H. Rathbone
founded the Order of Knights
of Pythias, an international
fraternity, in Washington,
D.C., on Feb. 19, 1864.
The organization's prima-
ry objective was to promote
friendship among men and
to relieve suffering. The
friendship of Damon and
Pythias served as a founda-
tion for the organization's
lessons and rituals.
Today, Port St. Joe's


Knights of Pythias' mission
has expanded far beyond
that of taking care of widows
and orphans and burying
the dead. The organization
now provides a wide range of
social and service activities.
The brothers of the
Knights of Pythias welcome
the opportunity to bring new
members into the Order.
If you are interested in
joining, please contact a
member of the Order.
Current members are
Clarence Monette, James
Clemmons, Ernest Gant,
Billy Quinn Jr., Thadus Russ
Sr., Kenneth M. Monette,
Frankie Fenell, Bonnie Bell,
Horace Barr, James Dumas,
James Brown, David Lewis,

School district weighs larger levy referendum


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor

,During a workshop on
Tuesday afternoon, the
Gulf County School Board
appeared to be leaning
toward doubling the ante.
Already considering put-
ting a half-mill levy before
voters sometime in the
spring, Superintendent of
Schools Tim Wilder made
the argument that a full
mill levy may be the bet-
ter route available to the
board to allow the flexibil-
ity to achieve the goals for
a campaign seeking addi-
tional funding from local
taxpayers.
The issue is one of sim-
ple math.
With the state already
instructing districts to hold
back 2 percent on Florida
Education Finance Program
(FEFP) funds and hinting
that another 2 percent cut
will be coming before the
end of the year, the district,
which cut some $2 mil-
lion and 40 positions from
this year's budget, is feel-
ing a tightening belt from
Tallahassee.
In addition, county prop-
erty values are estimated to
drop significantly next year
and the district has a host


of needs, in particular try-
ing to provide more com-
petitive salaries to teachers
and staff, a half mill would
likely fall short of meeting
needs, Wilder said.
Based on this year's tax-
able property value in the
county, a half mill would
bring the district $1.25
million; a full mill roughly
$2.5 million. A mill is equal
to $1 for every $1,000 in
taxable property value.
Those numbers could
certainly change on the
2009 Truth in Millage
(TRIM) notices should the
levy be approved.
"As bad as we hear it might
be (from Tallahassee), $1.2
million isn't going to allow
us to do the things we want
to do," Wilder said. "One
of our goals, of course,, is
to put money in teachers'
pockets, in everybody's
pockets.
"$1.2 million won't even
cover the cuts we are going
to see from the state. We
might not see them, but it
looks like we will. I see that
$1.2 million being drained
very quickly. I don't think
the half mill will solve all
our problems."
For example, just a
1 percent raise for all
employees would cost


roughly $125,000 each
year. A 5 percent reserve
fund balance an optimum
benchmark for local gov-
ernments translates into
$585,000, though Wilder
said he favored working
toward that 5 percent goal
over several years.
Wilder emphasized that
pursuing a full mill levy will
mean some "give and take"
with schools regarding
local capital improvement
money, which the district
currently supplies to the
schools at $65 per student
to use for site improve-
ments.
Some of the "luxury"
items may fall by the way-
side, Wilder said, as a
trade-off for securing the
funding from an additional
mill.
Given the district's eco-
nomic conditions and
with enrollment down
about 100 students so far
this year the required local
effort funding will drop
accordingly the board is
faced with few options for
securing additional funding
to avoid the type of man-
power slashing that pre-
ceded the current school
year.
Effectively, school boards
have only two main options


- borrowing the money,
meaning interest rates and
the like, or seeking fund-
ing through a local refer-
endum.
"We've got to do some-
thing and this is the only
legal way to raise money,"
Wilder said.
On the plus side for the
district are several fac-
tors. The board has been
restrained with capital
improvement village, the
main component of school
funding over which it
has real sway, for years.
Districts can assess up
to two mills for capital
improvement; Gulf District
Schools have been below
one mill this decade. -
"The reality is this board
has been very frugal," said
board chairwoman Linda
Wood. "In good faith,
we have kept that (capi-
tal improvement) millage
down and we have needs,
real needs."


And if property values
in the county fall next year,
the impact in taxes par-
ticularly the referendum
levy for individual prop-
erty owners would also
drop.
As it stands under
today's property values, a
full mill on a house valued
at $100,000 would be $75.
With some cuts to other
local capital improvement
projects, Wilder and dis-
trict financial officer Sissy
Worley illustrated that the
impact could be reduced to
as low as $48.75.
And lower property val-
ues would translate into
less of a hit to individual
taxpayers.
A primary concern,
voiced by board mem-
ber George Cox, is that
if a referendum passed
next spring and was not
approved by voters again
in four years the refer-
endum levy would sunset


in four years the district
could find itself in a bigger
financial pickle.
"The thing that concerns
me, at a time certain, if
this does not pass again
we will be in deep water,"
Cox said.
Wood suggested that
school officials gauge the
feelings of businesses on
each side of the county,
since businesses do not
enjoy the same protection
from assessments and
property taxes as home-
steaded property owners.
Wilder said he would
bring a proposed referen-
dum and ballot language
to the board during its
organizational meeting on
Nov. 18. If approved by the
board, the county commis-
sion would then have to
approve placing the refer-
endum on the ballot.
The target is several pub-
lic meetings to follow, then
a March election.

Trail Tales


With the election over and the results in -
this was written prior to Tuesday's closing of
the polls it is always worth reviewing what
was learned on the local campaign trail this
summer.
Bullying as Platform
State lawmakers inject themselves into
the issue of bullying in public schools, but
some adults can't seem to move beyond the
sandbox.
The race for the District 1 county commission
seat demonstrated that some elected officials
could use a little of what parents call time out.
Commissioner Carmen McLemore's
platform, as presented during the candidates'
forum, provided in 3-D Technicolor a snapshot
of what much of county government is about.
Not issues, not moving the county forward,
but instead belittling everything and everybody
with a cross agenda.
There are some on the commission who
have raised this sort of governing style to an
art form, but Mr. McLemore's sniping, bullying
and combative approach to a challenger was
sickening to behold.
Fundamentally, the argument was that Greg
Bozeman's decision to pursue a career outside
of his native county and then return to live was
an automatic disqualifier for public office.
This must be fine news for all those among
the 2,000 or so students in the county's schools
who might aspire to go off to school, join the
military, serve your country and then return
home to make a difference.
This strident approach was all the more
ironic given that Mr. Bozeman's central point
in running was to change the tone of county
government, which he perceived as vindictive
and threatening towards its own employers
taxpayers.
Tax Watch
Note to incumbents you didn't cut property
taxes over your time in office, and saying so
doesn't make it so.
The record is this. For the first five years of
this decade the budget grew by roughly 150
percent, reaching over $13 million in property
tax collections. That number still hovers over
$12 million and commissioners approved a
spending increase for the coming fiscal year.
That isn't cutting taxes.
That's maintaining the status quo from the
golden times when all around in the private
sector, the ones paying the county's freight, are
suffering.
Cut out the assertions that this commission
has provided real taxpayer relief. That is a bold
face lie.
Midnight Madness
The last-minute allegations in the District 3
race were unseemly and unnecessary. Yes, if
there was taxpayer money used to advance a


political campaign that is the kind of thing the
county has seen too much of over the years.
But the final votes in this election in which
more than 50 percent of the county's registered
voters had cast ballots prior to Tuesday, weren't
likely to come down to who made T-shirts or
who accepted campaign contributions after the
deadline four years ago.
Fewer than 15 votes separated the same two
men in 2004 and it's a valid guess that the vote
this time around was not determined by the
origin of rack cards or delinquent rent owed
the city of Port St. Joe.
Before placing name on ballot or sitting
down in a commission seat, every candidate
needs to grow a thicker skin and let issues, not
personalities decide races. Voters are fatigued
with such campaigns.
County-Wide Bull Hockey
Four years after voters firmly stamped their
approval to return to county-wide voting, the
discussion by candidates about the issue was
disheartening, to say the least, regardless of
the campaign.
The Florida Constitution provides only one
template for any hybrid of single-member and
county-wide districts and that template would
not fit over Gulf County and is therefore a moot
point, beyond the fundamental fairness aspect
of such a system.
The notion that Commissioner Nathan
Peters, Jr. could somehow be persuaded to
drop the lawsuit that led to the federal decree
on single-member districts due to, well, long-
standing personal ties seems implausible on
its face.
Mr. Peters has given little inclination he is
willing to budge on this issue even as voters in
his own district want it addressed post haste.
And Mr. McLemore's continued assertion
thatvoters in his district don't want county-wide
voting flies in the face of a 2004 referendum
and recent polls conducted by the Gulf County
Republican Party spotlighting that residents
north and south want county-wide voting by
wide margins.
But if this campaign proved anything it is
this these commissioners do not get along.
They do not like each other.
They lobbied for challenging candidates
in other districts, turned meetings into the
equivalent of schoolyard spats, voted out of
spite instead of common sense or the good of
the county and generally acted as toddlers do -
as if the world spins around them and anybody
who disrupts that view had better back away.
They continued this kind of behavior at a
time in history, for the nation and county, when
a unified vision, a collegial approach, a broad
horizon is needed.
In plainer words, they could not have offered
a better set of reasons for county-wide voting.


Everybody has a favorite
teacher, one who sticks in the
fissures of the brain as somebody
who made a difference, who
carried their passion as a finely
tailored jacket and kept you on
the right path.
Gulf County is brimming with
such teachers and, sure, there are
school grades to prove
it, but there is also the
story that follows.
Much of the following
words did not flow
from my brain because .B
the message and what
it says about this
community's fabric was
beyond my thesaurus.
The story is about
Ricky Lamberson, a
Port St. Joe native, a Tim
product of the public Star
schools and now an Ed
award-winning teacher
of the sort that many
predicted while he was still in
high school.
Ricky was born and raised
here, his parents Rick and Connie
Lamberson and the late Vickie
Lamberson, his grandparents
Dick and Jean Lamberson and
Nan and Ted Turza, all of Port St.
Joe.
Early on, Picky, a popular
student by all accounts, knew he
was on a path from the classroom
to the classroom.
After the first day of his
junior year in high school, Ricky


d(
r
dil


announced to his dad that he
wanted to be an elementary school
teacher and move to the east
coast of Florida where he could
impact students and indulge his
second passion, surfing.
The bug bit him in Mrs.
Parrish's first grade class at
Port St. Joe Elementary, where
helped with math skills
in his first time as an
executive intern.
"If a student was
having a good day, I
would let them wear
my watch or necklace,"
Ricky chuckled to his
father.
He continued to
intern during his
junior and senior years
Croft of high school, helping
News teachers and students,
tor always open, always
eager.
They say tragedy
stamps courage and Ricky,
again by all accounts, displayed
buckets full his senior year after
the loss of his mother to a long
illness. He graduated in 2000
with a 3.49 GPA, just short of
being a high-honor graduate.
In his honor and to recognize
his success in the face of deep
adversity, the scholarship
committee at the high school
gave him the "349" award and a
$349 scholarship.

You Talk About True Grit!


It was cold. And damp. And
miserable. There was very little
food. Almost no meat. Clothes were
down to thin and threadbare. Shoes
had been marched off their feet. As
a matter of fact, you could tell where
a continental soldier had been by
the blood prints left in the snow.
Some couldn't take it and slipped
away under the cover of darkness.
But most stayed. Incredibly, they
built small huts and dug in for the
long winter. They commiserated
over the lack of food. They mourned
the deaths of friends and relatives
from the mounting diseases and
malnutrition. They cursed the snow
and the rain and monotony and the
constant drilling.
And yet they stayed! They liked
their general. And they didn't take
kindly to the ever-tightening yoke of
British rule. It was an independent
spirit that was born out of necessity.
Franklin had warned them, "We
must all hang together, or we will
all hang separately."
No battle was fought there. No
gun fired at an enemy attacker. No
great victory claimed for the home
team. No shouting and celebrating
took place. But Valley Forge might
have been where it all began for the
American soldier. Somewhere they
reached deep within themselves.
Something was going on here that
was bigger than any one individual.
Ideas and goals and rights and


liberty were worth fighting for! And
dying for...
History records that those
early American soldiers got up
out of the muck and mire and
destitute of that loathsome winter
camp and went looking for the
British. It took them five years to
push the Redcoats to the brink
of utter destruction at Yorktown.
But you've got to remember the
British Empire was the largest in
the world at the time.
England tried us again in 1812.
Francis Scott Key wrote a song
after one of those battles. And
Andy Jackson and a bunch of
descendants of Valley Forge finished
them off down in New Orleans. We
weren't sure of the direction of
this young nation but we were
determined not to be ruled by
outside forces. If it meant "calling
out the troops," so be it!
We got into a fight down in Texas
before it was a part of "us." But
the principal was the same. Santa
Ana wasn't going to sit in Mexico
City and "send word" up to Texas
as to how they could live. William
Barret Travis came from Alabama.
Jim Bowie from Louisiana; David
Crocket from Tennessee. Someone
mentioned freedom and the Valley
Forge effect kicked in. We'll do
whatever it takes. In this particular
situation, it took the Alamo. It
was not a fort. It was an old

Spanish mission. The walls were
crumbling or non existent. It was
pretty much un-defendable. And
yet 185 men held off five thousand
Mexican soldiers for 13 days. Each
soldier there paid the supreme
sacrifice but they bought precious
time for Sam Houston and some
more "descendants." When these
"Texicans" fell upon Santa Ana's
mighty army at San Jacinto it took
them 18 minutes to route and
defeat 'the Mexicans. "Remember
the Alamo" is a pretty good rallying
cry!
September 17, 1862, is noted
by most scholars as the single
bloodiest day in the history of
warfare. It took place mostly in and
around farmer Miller's cornfield
near Antietam Creek in Maryland.
The Union army started a massive


aerial barrage at dawn aimed at the
Southern position up by Dunker
Church. The two opposing forces
then charged and recharged each
other continuously until after 5:30
in the afternoon. It was Americans
against Americans! Nobody did
much retreating. Nobody flinched.
Nobody blinked. There was not a
single cornstalk left standing and
the casualty count was 23,000.
The doughboys left the farms
and the cities and the comforts of
home for an all expense paid trip
to Paris. The world marveled at
the United States' fast recruitment,
training and rapid deployment to
France in World War I. Will Rogers
was not surprised. He explained it
pretty well when he announced that
it takes just half the time when "you
only train them to go one way!"
It was over 100 degrees in the
malaria infested jungles of New
Guinea in the spring of 1944.
American soldiers complained
about the rain. And the C-rations.
And the mosquitoes. And the hurry
up and wait. They wondered aloud
about how they got this far from
home...then they fought the fanatical
Japanese on the beaches, in the
air, aboard ship, in the trenches,
through the jungle...at Tarawa,
Rear-Admiral Keiji Shibazaki, the
Japanese commander, boasted
that "it would take one million men
one hundred years" to conquer

We lost 5,000 men before noon

"Fortress Europe." And yet wave

those beaches! France ought to
be falling on their respective faces
and saluting every American man,
woman and child in uniform to
this day! Uncle Clifford told me the
temperature was in single digits in
Belgium in December of 1944. The
Germans mounted their last ditch
"Battle of the Bulge" offensive.
They surrounded the 101st
Airborne Division at Bastogne.
The Americans were low on food,
ammunitions and hope. The bad
weather precluded any help from

command ask the encircled army
to surrender General Anthony
McAuliffe's official reply was
"NUTS!" Don't you know every
single one of those old soldiers
from Valley Forge looked down
from the portals of Heaven and
grinned.
It was colder in Korea in 1951
than Valley Forge in 1776. And just
as hot in Viet Nam as it had been in
North Africa and New Guinea. This
nation can not and must not loose
its understanding, respect and
reverence for what the American
soldiers have done, are doing and
will always do for us. The game
is up for all of us if that day ever
comes...
We are blessed to have them
now, standing in the gap for us, in
Iraq and Afghanistan and where
ever else there is a need. And let
me tell you about today's soldiers,
they would've done whipped them

Don't Close
Museums
Dear Editor,
We need your help,
friends.
Florida's Division of
Recreation and Parks is
closing our museums, and
we've got to STOP this from
happening.
Last night I attended
the Apalachicola Area
Historical Society meeting.
The main discussion was on
what we can do to stop our
government from closing
our museums.
We are now being


threatened with the closing
of two of Florida's most
historical museums in the
Panhandle, the John Gorrie
ofApalachicola and our own
Constitution Convention
Museum of Port St. Joe.
We can not let this
happen.
Please, please help us
stop this from happening!
Please feel free to
contact me with any ideas
on how we can stop this
action from coming true.
Let's ALL write letters to
Governor Charlie Crist and
our legislators. We welcome
any help you can share with

McAteer Letter a
Bright Spot
Dear Editor:
This is a letter to the
Editor in response to
MILITARY SPOUSES-
THEY SERVE, TOO
authored by Mr. Ed
McAteer.
The article written by Mr.


Ed McAteer was a bright
spot in my day. I believe I
can speak for many military
spouses that we appreciate
Mr. McAteer taking the
time to acknowledge the
important role that we
spouses have contributed
down through the years.
Thank you, Thank you,
Thank you, Mr. McAteer.
To be the spouse of a
military person was an
honor and a privilege for
me. As a mother of five
sons, I chose to be a stay-
at-home mom, hoping that
it would compensate for
my husband's absence
while overseas. I am very
proud of my husband,
David and the sacrifices
he made as a warrior for
our county. During his 21
years of service (3 years
in the Navy and 18 in the
Army) he spent three tours
of duty in war zones. Many
times he was away for short


periods on TDY (temporary
duty) assignments. At
times it was difficult, but
with the help of friends,
family, prayers, and God's
blessings, we can say, it
was worth it all.
We are obviously a
military family. Not only
did my David serve in the
U.S. Army but our oldest
son, David III served a
tour of duty with the Army
after high school and now
his son, our grandson,
David IV, is in the Army,
and returned the last week
of October from Iraq after
completing his second tour
of duty.
After our sons were
grown, and at the young
age of 48, I pursued a
career of my own. Yes, you
guessed it. My job was with
Civil Service and I've been
honored to work with the
Marines, Navy and the Air
Force. The last 10 years of


my career were spent at
Tyndall Air Force Base. In
my opinion, military people
are the finest people in
the world. The respect,
dedication, and unselfish
commitment I observed
through my civil service
career is beyond words.
I am so proud to be
an American. To live in
America--a free country
where we can vote without
harassment, worship
as we choose, and live
without fear-- is the
greatest privilege in the
world. In closing, I want to
say "Thank You" to all our
military, past and present,
as we observe Veterans
Day, for making so many
sacrifices for us so we
can live in this wonderful
land of the free and home
of the brave that we call
AMERICA.

November is American Diabetes Month


The Florida Department
of Health (DOH) recognizes
November as American
Diabetes Month and urges
Floridians and their loved
ones who have diabetes
to take small steps to
increase their quality of
life and prevent or delay
complications. Diabetes
is a major public health
crisis of the 21st century,
which continues to grow in
epidemic proportions.
Over 1.5 million
Floridians have diabetes
and about 3.5 million obese
adults are at increased


risk for developing type 2
diabetes.
"Having diabetes places
an individual at increased
risk for a number of serious,
even life-threatening
complications such as
heart attack, stroke, kidney
disease, blindness or
amputation of the foot or
leg," said Betsy Wood, R.N.,
M.PH., Chief of the DOH
Bureau of Chronic
Disease Prevention
and Health Promotion.
"Smoking increases
the risks of these
complications."


DOH recommends
the following steps to
help Floridians control
diabetes:
Ask your doctor for
assistance in getting
diabetesself-management
education.
If you smoke, it's never
too late to quit. Contact
Florida's Quitline for free
guidance at 1-877-U-CAN-
NOW.
Remember the ABCs
of diabetes care: Learn
your A1C, blood pressure
and cholesterol goals and
ask your doctor how you


can achieve them.
Several studies have
found that diabetes self-
management education is
associated with improved
blood sugar control, fewer
hospitalizations, lower
self-reported weight and
improved quality of life.
Diabetes self-management
education is covered by
insurance and Medicare.
Smoking increases
cholesterol levels, blood
pressure and blood sugar
levels and doubles the
risk of cardiovascular
disease among those with


diabetes. Overall, adults
with diabetes who smoke
are three times more likely
than their non-smoking
counterparts to die from
cardiovascular diseases.
Furthermore, smoking has
been found to be associated
with an increased risk of
foot ulcers, which may
lead to infections and
amputations.
DOH promotes, protects
and improves the health of
all people in Florida.

Diabetes Prevention and


Control Program, visit

Cut holiday gift costs


- from coupons to charity


By Jason Alderman

One interesting albeit
non-scientific- way to gauge
someone's comfort level with
the state of the economy is
to ask how much they plan
to spend on holiday gifts.
In good times, people tend
to spend more generously;
during rough periods, they
scale back.
Those trends were borne
out in a recent consumer
survey conducted by Visa
Inc., which found that
shoppers plan to spend an
average of $934 on gifts this
holiday season, down about
11 percent from last year's
$1,051 average. That jibes
with bleak industry forecasts
for the upcoming shopping
season.
If you're among those


looking for ways to manage
your holiday spending while
still finding meaningful gifts
for your loved ones, read on:
First, consider your
overall finances. Before
spending a dime on gifts,
step back and calculate
how much you can afford
as a portion of your overall
budget. Consider questions
such as:
Are your savings
sufficient to cover expenses
for a few months if you or
your spouse should get laid
off or have unexpected
medical expenses?
Would you be able to pay
off all gifts within a couple of
months?
Are you already
struggling to pay your
monthly bills?
Would you need to


suspend retirement savings
contributions in order to
buy gifts? If you answered
"no" to either of the first two
questions or "yes" to the
others, this probably isn't a
good year for extravagant
spending.
Make a list. Once you
decide how much you can
comfortably afford to spend
on gifts overall, list all the
people you need to shop
for, including a few gift
alternatives and their
costs for each person. I
call these 'micro budgets.'
Remember, if you overspend
on one present you'll need to
make up for it somewhere
else to balance out.
Comparison shop.
Retailers are likely to
offer deep discounts to
lure wary shoppers, so


check newspaper ads and
store websites frequently
for sales and coupons.
Comparison shopping Web
sites like www.shopping.
com, www.shopping.yahoo.
com andwww.pricegrabber.
com are also good resources
- plus, they may provide
good gift ideas for hard-to-
shop-for individuals.
Online coupons. When
shopping online, look for
the "coupon code" box
at checkout. Numerous
shopping websites post
coupon codes (as well
as printable hard-copy
coupons) for hundreds of
online and in-store retailers.
By quickly searching a few
such sites (including www.
mybargainbuddy.com, www.
dealcoupon.com, www.
currentcodes.com and www.


couponhut.com), you might
find significant discounts on
items you're about to buy.
Cash in frequent flyer
miles. One good way to use
up your airline miles before
they expire is to redeem them
for cash or merchandise.
Check out your airline's
miles program website for
details you might just
find an appropriate gift for
someone on your list.
Credit card rewards.
Similarly, if you're amassing
reward points through your
credit card, check out its
online merchandise catalog
or consider cashing out
the points for cash or gift
certificates.
If you need help creating
a holiday budget, visit Visa's
free personal financial
management site, Practical


Money Skills for Life, (www.
practicalmoneyskills.com/
holiday) where you'll find
easy-to-follow budgeting,
holiday entertaining and
travel planning tips as well
as interactive calculators to
track your spending.
And finally, have heart-
to-heart discussions with
family and friends. They're
probably just as concerned
about overspending.
In fact, maybe this is
a good year to exchange
charitable contributions in
each others' behalf to show
how thankful you are for
what you've got.

Ricky went on to
Tallahassee, receiving
a Bachelor's degree in
Education with an ESOL
(English for Speakers
of Other Languages)
endorsement at Flagler
College, graduating cum
laude.
Ricky was among
eight students selected
to participate in a pilot
program, taking some of
his classes at Fort Braden
Elementary School just
south of Tallahassee. He
learned new teaching
strategies, the aim to make
practical use of them in


the classroom when he got
back there.
Ricky graduated from
Flagler in 2005 and it was
on to Jacksonville and a
post teaching fifth graders
at Kernan Trail Elementary
School. Within two years
he was the grade level
chairman and remains so
during the current school
year.
And last month, a
teacher of only four years,
Ricky was named Teacher
of the Year at Kernan Trail
Elementary School. An
award determined by a
vote of the 60 teachers in


Ricky's school, who clearly
recognized the passion,
the common touch and the
link to his students that
Ricky had enjoyed with his
teachers.
To borrow a cliche, they
call it paying it forward.
Ricky said essentially
the same with the following
statement regarding the
award:


"I would like to thank
each and every teacher
that gave me their time,
patience, and last nerves
to see that I made it
through my years of
school successfully. There
are so many incredible
teachers in the Port St.
Joe community that I had
the privilege of learning
from.


"Two of those teachers
stood out as extraordinary
people that played a large
part in where I am today. A
special thank you goes out
to Mrs. Cathy Colbert and
Mrs. Ann Comforter for
showing me that teaching
is not always about long
division or learning songs
for a musical performance.
They were a large influence


in giving me a passion for
not only teaching students
but also loving children.
"I would like to
encourage anyone reading
this to take the time to
thank a teacher in your
community for the selfless
work they do that often
goes unnoticed."
Have you done so
today?

STUMP


FDEP officials called one of the best they
had seen, essentially would construct a
24-foot high wall of rocks at the Stump
Hole, with roughly half the height under-
water and the remainder above surface
water levels.
The process would be for the exist-
ing "watermelon" rocks to be removed,
a "marine" blanket placed down and the
"watermelon" rocks put back atop the blan-
ket. Then larger granite rocks would be
positioned atop the existing smaller rocks.
"We are talking about 167 pounds per
cubic foot, so two-and-a-half or three-ton
rocks," Butler said, adding that the rein-
forcement would buy the county two or
three more years while a more permanent
solution, such as a combination of an
elevated roadway and additional reinforce-
ment of the revetment, is executed.


The permit the FDEP will issue has a
five-year lile span, providing additional
breathing room for the county to deter-
mine the best long-term solution.
The county already has bid the rein-
forcement job to GAC Contractors Inc.
Company officials indicated last week
they could complete roughly 50 feet per
day, meaning once started, the job would
take about two weeks.
Rocks have been ordered and should
begin arriving in about two weeks, Butler
said, or about the same time as the per-
mit.
Butler said the rocks would be stock-
piled on the east side of County 30-E, and
the GAC indicated it would try to keep
a stockpile of about three days worth of
rocks available to better facilitate efficient
work on the project.

freedoms you have." Her
photographic design is
of her saluting and of her
and her husband hugging
after a nine-month separa-
tion while she had been in
Pakistan and he in Kuwait.
The rest of the montage
shows the boom of an air-
craft about to attach to an
F-15 fighter for refueling
and a photo of her base
camp in Pakistan. She cre-
ated the graphic design in
Gulf Coast Professor Jerry
Williams' Corel Draw class.
With a built-in target mar-
ket in the military-rich
Northwest Florida, she
projected the title of the
piece: "We're free because
of the brave."

Twin journey
Originally from Albany,
La., Yolanda "Lon" Addison
is a twin. At 33, she said
she has been married for
"most of her life" to her
husband, Milton, who also
is a twin. The two met when
they were 15 and began
a journey into the mili-
tary and education. At 20,


they joined the Mississippi
Army National Guard and
did basic combat training
at Fort Jackson. S.C., and
married the same year. They
joined the Army ROTC pro-
gram at the University of
Southern Mississippi and
eventually graduated with
bachelor's degrees and
commissions as second
lieutenants in the Army
Corps of Engineers, all on
the same day in May 1998.
Afterward, they were sta-
tioned in Missouri, where
they went through the Army
Engineer Officers Basic
Course, which Addison
said was "17 weeks of hard
math!" In May 2001, the
Addisons joined the Air
Force and were stationed
at Moody Air Force Base
in Valdosta, Ga. "I became
a logistics officer for the
Air Force," she said, "and
while we were there, I got
deployed to Pakistan and
Milt to Kuwait."
After she and Milt
returned safely from their
assignments, they had a
brief stint in Alaska before
he was stationed at Tyndall
Air Force Base as an ener-
gy engineer. Lon joined
the Air Force Reserves at
Keesler Air Force Base in


Mississippi and decided to
return to school to follow
her passion for photogra-
phy.
"I don't know what I
will actually do with this
degree," she said. "I may
want to get a job work-
ing for someone in graphic
design or in the Web design
field, or I may just use it to
be a better photographer,
but it is what I love, and I
believe that God has led us
here for a reason."

Racing heartbeat
In Pakistan, Lon Addison
was responsible for logis-
tics at the base camp: fuel,
vehicles, supplies, getting
people and goods on and
off base, etc.
"I was there eight months
and nearly made Milt a

and where in the plane to
place the most seriously
wounded, etc. Then one of
the parajumpers turned to
her and said ... "I need you
to do what I can't do ... and
that is talk to them and
give them the will to live."
After receiving their
orders, they got into their
gear and waited for the long
flight to reach the injured.
In those minutes of trying
to think of what she would
say to injured or dying sol-
diers, Addison came face-
to-face with her faith.
"I was baptized a long
time ago, and Milt and I
share a common faith," she
said. "But right then, in
that C-130, I knew my faith
as never before."
In midflight the mission
changed, with a decision
that helicopters would land
to get the downed soldiers
and that the C-130 would
refuel the helicopters.
They were about 800 feet
above a mountain, and the
air was so unstable, they
couldn't get the boom to
connect to the helicopter.
Wind shear knocked the
plane down to about 100
feet off the ground before
the pilot regained control.
"It can definitely raise your
heartbeat," Addison said.
"You know this kind of stuff
happens every day, but I
know I was never so glad to
be back on the ground!"
"I always had the greatest
respect for these guys," she
said, "but to actually see
what they have to do is a real
eye opener." The parajump-
er's motto is, "That others
may live," and she said there
is no question they live that
motto everyday.


Games and reality
When asked about her
patriotism during such an
unpopular war, Addison
said, "When I signed on
that dotted line, I said that
I would go when I was
called and would do what
my president ordered me
to do. That sounds simplis-
tic, but it is not."
Some students in her
classes, she said, "are lit-
erally into games. They
live somewhere else. Even
though it may sound like a
contradiction, I have seen
how technology saves lives,
and I am keenly interested
in it."
But though she under-
stands the lure of virtual
games and animation, she
said she believes more seri-
ous issues also ought to be
part of education.
"When I think of the
people who risk their lives
everyday so that we can
have our freedom, I think
many of us have our priori-
ties confused."
Citing "news" stories
about "Brad Pit or Brittany
Spears," Addison said,
"we need to focus on what
is really going on in our
world."

Gulf-Franklin Center keeps


dreams alive after 10 years


By David Adlerstein
Florida Freedom
Newspapers

Ten years after it sprout-
ed on the eastern edge
of Port St. Joe, the Gulf-
Franklin Center is needed
as much now as then to
nurture economic growth.
Such was the take-home
message in a relaxing cel-
ebration Wednesday after-
noon on campus to mark
the 10th anniversary of Gulf
Coast Community College's
facility serving Gulf and
Franklin counties.
"By having this campus,
we plant the seeds of hope
and opportunity," said Jim
Kerley, GCCC president,
before a sun-drenched
gathering of about 75 peo-
ple. "Keep the dream alive
as we go forward, and meet
the dreams of students to
come. Differences in lives
are being made on this
campus."
Port St. Joe businessman
David Warriner, speaking
for the foundation created


by his late in-laws, George
and Amelia Tapper, who
helped birth the facility in
1998, said circumstances
today are not unlike those
of a decade ago, when St.
Joe Company's paper mill
shut down.
"The mill was sold and
there was a lot of appre-
hension and anxiety," he
said, recalling a bloated
jobless rate as high as 28
percent.
"The hope the communi-
ty had was extraordinary,"
said Warriner, whose fam-
ily donated the first chunk
of what would later grow
into a 50-acre site. "I am
proud of being a small part
of that."
He reminded the audi-
ence, who included mem-
bers of the GCCC board
of directors, community
leaders, students and fac-
ulty, that today's real estate
market "is basically our
mill closure."
Chuck Isler, vice chair
of the GCCC board, out-
lined the four-decade


history of the commu-
nity college's move east-
ward, dating back to 1966
when Gulf County became
part of its service area.
In 1984, Franklin County
was added to the outreach
and in fall 1998, the cen-
ter opened its doors with
24 classes.
Today, there are dou-
ble the class offerings,
and about 450 students
attending, a nearly 23
percent increase over one
year ago. About 40 per-
cent of the student body is
non-traditional students,
from their mid-20s to
middle age, often married
with children, and work-
ing full-time jobs.
"I believe in taking edu-
cation to the doorsteps
of the community," said
Kerley.
Once Sacred Heart
Hospital is completed on
adjacent land, the need
will be greater for skilled
health care workers, he
said, adding that the Gulf-
Franklin Center also plans

more business classes,
and training tied to the
tourist industry.
The afternoon featured
performances by the
"Singing Commodores,"
tours of the campus and an
outdoor lunch of hot dogs
and hamburgers.

What is it that makes a
slob hunter? You know the
type, they kill deer out of
season or does in areas that
doesn't have a season.
I drove through the Point
Washington Management
area a few days ago and
saw some buzzards fly up
from the side of the road. It
didn't take a rocket scientist
to figure out what it was
they were feeding on. There
was a doe field-dressed with
much of the meat left behind
because the person who
killed her was in a hurry
to get out of there before a
game warden arrived.
If that wasn't bad enough,
around the corner some
slob fisherman had dumped
the remains of a trip to the
gulf. There were about three
dozen undersized triggerfish
and many snapper and
grouper heads. At least the
coyotes got a good meal out
of it.
You ask yourself what
kind of person would do
something like that. They
didn't just turn into a slob
on the day hunting season
began. It's a shame the
sane hunters have to suffer
because of them. If you
ever see someone dumping
animal remains on the side
of the road or spotlighting at
night call the FWC.
It won't be long before
squirrel hunters will be
scouting the riverbanks
looking for high dry ground
to pitch camp on. Squirrel
season comes in Nov. 8. I
haven't hunted squirrels
in years, but the thought
of pitching a tent on the
riverbank and sitting by a
fire on a cool fall evening
brings back some fond high
school memories.
The temperatures make
us want to go hunting, but
the fish are still biting like
gangbusters.
In the Choctawhatchee
Bay, redfish are turning up
just about everywhere. With
thee north winds the south
side of the bay will be a little
difficult to fish. It might be
possible to fish Hogtown,
but you will be limited to a
short stretch of land that will
shield you from the wind.
Cross the causeway on
U.S. 331 and fish the north
shore and you should be
able to stay out of some of
the wind. Either pole or use
you're an electric motor as
close to shore as possible and
you should run over some of
the many schools of redfish
that are being reported. It is
possible to launch on either
the east or west side of the
causeway.
Around the mouth of
the Choctawhatchee River
would be a prime location to
start looking for reds. With
this cooling we are having
I wouldn't be surprised if
speckled trout don't start
showing up in the rivers and
around the mouths in the
bay.
The Choctawhatchee
River shot to 6.5 feet after the
rains we had last week but


has dropped to 4.3. With this
north wind it should continue
to fall. Mullet still are being
caught at a staggering rate
on the lower portion of the
river. Trout will show up at
the mouths of the river as
the weather becomes colder.
Fishermen familiar with
this area know they have 13
mouths to choose from when
the trout start showing up.
A favorite method of
fishing in the river is "green
trout" fishing. This is done
using live shrimp and. a
cane pole. This is a sort of
spat fishing similar to the
way bream are fished in
the summer. It's a simple
method that only requires a
cane pole, live shrimp, cork
and hook.
The fisherman simply
sculls his boat close to the
bank lifting the shrimp gently
out of the water and placing
it close to a fishy looking
spot such as a fallen tree
or stump. Most of the bass
you will catch are small, but
every now and then a 2- or 3-
pounder comes along.
Roy Ledbetter at the
Salty Bass in Fort Walton
Beach said Spanish still are
biting in the bay. He says
pier fishing has fallen off due
to the rough weather making
the gulf muddy. Around the
Shalimar Bridge some legal
grouper were reported being
caught last week. Call Roy at
863-7999 for daily reports on
fishing in the Shalimar area.
In the Panama City area,
redfish continue to chew at
the jetties. Fishermen using
live bait are catching plenty
of bull reds in the pass as
long as the tide is moving.
Around the buoys, flounder
also can be found using live
bait. At the end of the rocks,
black snapper of unusually
large size are being caught
with pilchards or shrimp.
Down the St. Andrew
Sound (Crooked Island) way
the reports of pompano being
caught are increasing by the
day. Most people are fishing
from shore, but some are
sight fishing from boats. If
you run into Cussing Cousin
down that way you can bet
he's on a flounder hole.
Flounder up and down the
coast are moving toward the
gulf to spawn and St. Andrew
Sound is no exception.
If I really wanted to catch
some fish this time of the
year I would go to St. Joe
Bay. If the recent winds and
rains didn't stir up the water
this would be the perfect
place to spend a few days
camping and relaxing.
Sight fishing for trout is
one of the most enjoyable
ways to fish for them. To
sight a trout and then get him
to bite live bait cast in front
of him is about as exciting
as it gets. There also is a
possibility of catching redfish
or pompano using the sight
fishing method. Bring along
your cast net because you
will see many balls of mullet
also moving toward the gulf
to spawn.
Be it bow or rod and
reel, October offers the
outdoorsman a variety of
choices.

Jay Runs Past


Wewahitchka


By Josh Weinfuss
Florida Freedom
Newspapers

Wewahitchka coach Todd
Lanter knew all about Jay
wide receiver Dale Barlow's
speed.
It took his team less than
7 minutes into Friday's 42-20
loss in a District 1-1A game
to find out.
Barlow got behind the
Gators' secondary for a
20-yard touchdown pass
from quarterback Stephen
Brabham to put Jay up 6-0.
On Jay's next possession,


Barlow ran away for a 73-
yard TD reception and the
Royals (5-3, 4-2) led 12-6.
"We were intimidated
by him on defense," Lanter
said. "Not to take anything
away from him, and his
quarterback put it right on
the money, but we allowed
some of that to happen."
Three of Barlow's
four receptions produced
touchdowns and he finished
with 107 yards. Brabham
was 12 of 20 for 216 yards
and four TDs.
On the possession
after the Royals' first TD,


Wewahitchka quarterback
Cody Wade hit Chris Peak for
a 69-yard touchdown pass to
even the game at 6-6.
Wade finished with 240
yards, three touchdowns
and two interceptions on 11
of 28 passing.
The Gators (3-5, 2-4)
turned the ball over on
their first two possessions,
once when Wade threw an
interception and another
when Chance Knowles
fumbled.
Wade threw his second
touchdown pass to open the
second quarter, finding Billy


Peak for a 5-yard pass to
even the game at 12-12.
From there, the Gators
gave up 30 unanswered
points. It didn't help that
Josh Lollie and Jonathan
Knobles were unable to
finish the game. Lollie
injured his ankle in the
first quarter while blocking
Jay's first point-after
attempt. Knobles left the
game with a deep thigh
bruise that bothered him
all week.
With an even younger
team than normal on the
field, the Gators gave up


115 yards and a touchdown
to Jay running back Rush
Hendricks.
Wade's final TD pass was
a 65-yard pass and catch to
Knowles, who caught four
passes for 113 yards.

Beach for brunch at the
School of Fish restaurant.
Those attending the
reunion are encouraged to
bring school memorabilia
to share with their class-
mates.
Sonny Chafin has a mas-
sive collection of newspaper
articles, football programs,
school newsletters and
other memorabilia, which
he said he plans to show his
friends.
Last Friday, Chafin and
Wayne Taylor reminisced
about their days on the
1957 football team.
The team went 8-2 that
year, winning the North
West Florida Conference
and earning R. Marion
Craig his third Coach of the
Year title.
Taylor and Chafin fondly
remembered Craig, though
they noted that most of
their parents did not appre-
ciate his rough style.
"He'd get on you harder
than anybody in the world,
and he was as soft-hearted
as anybody in the world,"
said Taylor. "He had a good
side, and I knew it was
there."
Chafin said Craig's main
goal was to teach his play-
ers to "grow up" and accept
responsibility for their
actions.
During their senior year,
Taylor and Chafin made
the All-Big Bend Football
Squad. Taylor was named
Back of the Year and Chafin
and Billy Denton made first
team.
Chafin and Taylor are
counting the days until this
weekend's reunion.
"It's always fun to get back
with your classmates, even
if it's real quick," Taylor
said.
Chafin agreed.
"I look forward to it," he
said.
Classmates inter-
ested in attending the
reunion are encouraged
to call Sony Chafin at
(850) 527-9732 or Frank
Fletcher at (850) 535-0440.


A banquet program from
Sonny Chafin's collection
honors the football team's
winning season.

Gulf County Republican Party member Debbie Ashbrook watches a young Wewahitchka Elementary School student
cast her vote for president. Elementary school students in Wewahitchka and Port St. Joe favored Sen. John McCain.


Tots I


By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
In the days leading to the presi-
dential election, two questions
were on the nation's lips.
Would young voters actually
show up to the polls, and would
they solidly back Sen. Barack
Obama?
In Gulf County, the answers
were yes and no.
On Oct. 30, 725 young voters
cast early votes in the presidential
election.
Though none were of legal voting
age, Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka
elementary school students made
their voices heard anyway, favoring
Sen. John McCain by comfortable
margins.
In Port St. Joe, McCain won
a 59- to 40-percent victory over
Obama, earning 260 votes to
Obama's 176.
In Wewahitchka, the margin
of victory was even greater, with
McCain taking 68 percent of the
vote (194) to Obama's 28 percent
(80).
The culmination of the Gulf
County Republican Party's Republi-
KIDS project, the election came
after students read candidate biog-
raphies and interacted with area
political figures.
Republi-KIDS coordinator Tracy
Melvin said she was surprised by


Flag recipients


1avor McCain


the relative closeness of the mock-
presidential election.
"It was a far closer race than one
might have expected," said Melvin,
who reported no Election Day sna-
fus. "There were few bad ballots,
no hanging chads. The children
took their newfound rights and
responsibilities very seriously."
The Gulf County Elections Office
supplied sample ballots and "I
Voted" stickers for all the children.
The younger students received
simplified ballots with only the
photographs and names of McCain
and Obama.
Teachers distributed the ballots
in their classrooms, and students
placed them in a ballot box on
their way to lunch.
Though most students selected
either McCain or Obama, nine
chose among the other candidates
listed on the ballot.
One Wewahitchka student wrote
in the name "Mickey Mouse."
Melvin denied having any influ-
ence over the vote of her 5-year-old
nephew, Bryson Lee, who cast his
ballot for McCain.
"I surprisingly did not. As much
as I'd like to say I influenced him,
I didn't," she said.
Melvin thanked Gulf County
superintendent Tim Wilder and
the faculties at both elementary
schools for their support of the
Republi-KIDS project.


National Scholastic
Election Poll Dubs
Obama Winner

Though Gulf County students
have successfully picked the presi-
dent in recent history, the Oct. 30
election results differed from those
of another important presidential
indicator, the Scholastic Presidential
Election Poll.
Students in grades 1 through 12
who responded to a poll in Scholastic
News and Junior Scholastic maga-
zines favored Obama over McCain
by 18 percent.
Obama won 57 percent of the
vote to McCaln's 39 percent. Almost
250,000 magazine readers cast
votes.
The results of the Scholastic poll
have mirrored the outcome of the
presidential election all but twice
since 1940.
In 1948, kids chose Thomas
Dewey over Harry Truman;
and in 1960, students favored
Richard Nixon over John F
Kennedy.
In Florida, a key swing state,
Scholastic readers favored
Obama 55 percent to McCain's
41 percent.

Residents of Bay St. Joe Go Military


Mexico Beach



Council Thanks


City Employees

Employees of Mexico Beach had an early
Halloween last Friday when they were guests of
the City Council for lunch.
Mayor Al Cathey and the council invited
all city workers to lunch at the civic center.
Starting at noon, employees were greeted by the
mayor, who thanked them for their work and
dedication to the city of Mexico Beach. Other
member of council also thanked the workers.
Of special note was a song performed by
City Administrator Chris Hubbard. A native
Kentuckian, Hubbard made a wager on the
football game between the Kentucky Wildcats
and the Florida Gators. He lost and had to
serenade the employees with a song lauding
and complimenting the Gators. Cheers and
comments that "You won't make it on American
Idol" were heard clearly.
Mary Leonard of the City Water Department
remarked, "It was very thoughtful of the mayor
and council to think of the employees." She
made it a point to thank Mayor Cathey person-
ally.
Mango Marley's catered the lunch of ham-
burgers, BBQ, hot dogs and assorted desserts.


The residents and staff at The Bridges of Bay St. Joe
enjoyed a day of fun and celebration with all the dressing
in their favorite military attire, dancing to current and past
military music, telling stories and discussing their experi-
ences and lives while serving our country in different wars
and branches of the service.
It was a great day for all to join together with fellow resi-
dents and staff who care for them daily and are so involved
in their lives.

Luke 11-27
Thou shall love the Lord
thy God with all thy soul,
and with all thy soul, and
with all mine and they
neighbor as thyself. We
have to love one another
if we want to go back with
Him, Jesus, the place. He
have prepared for us. He
said where he be there we
may be there also.
1 Corinthians 13
Though I speak with
the tongues of men and
of angels. And have not,
I am become as sounding
brass or a tinkling cym-
bal. And though I have
the gift of prophecy and
understand all mysteries
and all knowledge. And
though I have all faith
so that I could remove
mountains and have
not charity, I am noth-
ing. And though I bestow
all my good to feed the
poor and though I give
my body to be burned
and have not charity, it
profiteth me nothing.
Charity suffereth long and
is kind. Charity envieth
not. Charity vaunteth not
itself, is not puffed up.
Doth not behave itself
unseemly. Seeketh not
her own. Evil is not eas-
ily provoked. Thinketh no
but rejoiceth not in iniq-
uity, but rejoiceth in the
truth.
Beareth all things
believeth all things hope
all things endeareth all
things. Charity never fai-
leth but whether there
be prophecies they shall
fail. Whether there be
tongues, they shall cease.
Whether there be knowl-
edge, it shall vanish away.
For we know in part and
we prophesy in part.
But when that which is
perfect is come, then that
which is in part shall be
done away.
When I was a child I
spoke as a child, I under-
stood as a child, I thought


as a child. But when I
became a man, I put away
childish things. And now
abideth faith, hope, char-
ity, these three. But the
greatest of these is char-
ity.
2 Timothy
For God hath not given
us the spirit of fear, but
of power and of love and
of a sound mind. If a
man therefore purge him-
self from these, he shall
be a vassel unto'honor,
sanctified and meet for
the master's use and pre-
pared unto every good
work.
Fleet also youthful lusts
but follow righteousness,
faith, charity, peace, with
them that call on the Lord
out of pure heart. We are
living in lost and evil and
perilous time is here.
Men and women will be
lover of their ownself dis-
obedient to parents with
unholy love of pleasures
more than lovers of God.
Having a form of god-
liness but denying the
power thereof, from such
turn away.
If you don't have charity
you just might give it up.
We've got to love every-
body. Those that don't
love you just won't be able
to go to the place when
Jesus said He's gone to
prepare a place for use
that we may be there with
him.
Hell hath enlarged itself
without measure. I don't
care how good we live you
don't have love you are
going to hell, no money,
no houses. Whatever you
have does not matter or
who we are, it is coming
up again so let us love .
Get right with God, do
it now. You have to get it
right down here or it will
be too late. God if love.
Charity is love.

God Bless,
Mother Mary Freeman

The Christian Conscience


By the time that this message
appears, Halloween will be over,
and the 2008 elections will be
over. Thoughts will be turning to
Christmas. Many of us look with
a certain amount of sadness at
what Christmas has become. Some
are trying to brush it off as just
another holiday. I am .especial-
ly saddened when a cashier says,
"Happy Holidays" instead of Merry
Christmas. Don't businesses know
that most of their business comes,
not from the other December holi-
days, but from Christmas.
Yes, I know that Jesus probably
wasn't born on Dec. 25, and that
much of the Christmas observances
have been secularized, but we, in our
family, celebrate Christmas in our
own way, not by surprises, but by
trying to give gifts that each person
needs. Christmas is a holiday that
inspires unselfish behavior. Those,
who approach Christmas looking for
what they can get, are missing the
whole joy that comes from giving.
I really miss the Christmases of
old. When I was a child. I recall
groups playing instruments, singing
Christmas Carols, and even telling
the Christmas story on street cor-


ners near the city square. Groups of
all kinds went around singing the old
fashioned carols, especially in front
of nursing homes and the homes of
shut-ins. All the stores were playing
Christmas carols over their loud
speaker systems. It made you feel
like buying and giving. Today, many
young people have never heard the
songs about the real meaning of
Christmas.
In that light, my son T.J. (You
all know T.J.!) has recorded a CD,
which contains about eight of the
traditional Christmas carols. He also
has included a few of the beautiful
new Christmas songs like "More
than a Story," 'Joseph's Song," "Oh,
Holy Night," and "I'll Give My Heart."
Those who attended his Christmas
concert in Mexico Beach a couple
years ago, remember how blessed
they were with his guitar playing,
and singing the carols about the real
meaning of Christmas. The cover and
labeling aren't fancy, but the music is
fabulous. There is no preaching, just
beautiful music. We haven't figured
out how we're going to share these.
We are not interested in making a lot
of money. Any reasonable donation,
to help with our expenses, will get


you one. If you are a business owner,
and are willing to play this music
on your store loud speaker system,
we'll do everything we can to supply
one to you free of charge.
At the Mexico Beach Christian
Worship Center, every Sunday
reflects the spirit of Christmas. We
celebrate His humbling himself, and
taking the form of a servant, by hum-
bling ourselves (Phillipians 2:5-11 ).
We worship Jesus Christ, the Son of
God, Savior and Messiah, with our
praise and singing and giving. We
also demonstrate our love for one
another.
Our services begin with a time of
greeting and fellowship, at 9:30 a.m.
CT on Sundays. Worship begins at
9:45 a.m. After the service, we have a
pot luck luncheon so that we can fel-
lowship with one another, and exhort
one another (Hebrews 10:24 ). We
worship at the Mexico Beach Civic
Center on 105 N. 31st Street, which
is behind the Beach Walk Gift Shop,
just off rte. 98.
God Bless,

Miracles at First United Methodist


This Sunday, Nov. 9, The Miracles
will be leading the worship services
at 9 and 11 a.m. Eastern at First
United Methodist Church in Port St.
Joe. Everyone is invited to attend. We
promise you will be blessed by the
ministry of The Miracles.
The Miracles are residents of the
Baddour Center in Senatobia, Miss.
and touring choir and ambassadors for
the center, sing from their hearts about
"miracles." The choir of 23 incredibly
talented people all have one thing in
common they're handicapped and
live at the center, which is a residential
community for those with mild to
moderately mental retardation.
The center provides opportunities
for these people with special needs to


reach their full potential.
The choir travels extensively,
performing 30 weekends out of the year.
The Miracles have toured in Alabama,
visiting Talledega, touring the NASCAR
race track and performing at the Helen
Keller School for the Blind. They have
toured in the upper United States,
visiting Niagara Falls and Canada.
They've also toured in New Orleans
and surrounding areas.
The Baddour Center is a community
for adults with intellectual disabilities.
A place where happiness abounds,
independence and freedom take on
new meaning and dreams come true.
Located on 120 acres of beautiful
countryside in rural Senatobia, MS, just
45 minutes south of Memphis.


Since 1978, we have provided
specialized programs and services
that promote maximum growth
mentally, physically, socially, spiritually,
emotionally and vocationally.
But, life at The Baddour Center is
about so much more than a beautiful
campus and specialized programs and
services. The Baddour Center is truly
"home" to more than 170 adults with
intellectual disabilities it's about
providing a well-rounded life experience
for people who are full of spirit and
bursting with potential to become all
that God created them to be. It's about
living, learning, working and growing.
Come and be blessed this Sunday
by The Miracles. For more information
call the church office at 227-1924.

4A.


What do you want to be when you
grow up? This is a question that the
first grade class was asked a lot last
week. Yes, it was Career Week at
Faith Christian School for the first
grade. Thanks to many gracious
volunteers, our students have been
blessed with a wealth of knowledge
regarding their future occupational
possibilities.
Following a visit from Officer
Rusty Burch on Friday, Oct. 17, we
kicked off last week with a visit from
Pastor Mac Fulcher of the FUMC.
Pastor Mac informed the students
that being a pastor involves much
more than delivering the sermon on
Sunday.
A pastor is blessed to be able to
share with his parishioners some
of the most important moments in
life, such as baptisms, graduations,
weddings and funerals. Also, pastors
such as Pastor Mac are here for us
whenever we need guidance.
From the "pray" man to the
"spray" men who protect us from
mosquitoes, Mark Cothran and Austin
Horton from Gulf County Mosquito
Control visited our classroom.
Mr. Mark and Mr. Austin educated
the students about the life cycles
of mosquitoes and various ways
to "fight the bite." Seeing the
wrigglerss" was a real plus moment
for the students.
By the middle of the week, the
whole class went to the county
jailhouse! Our Wednesday visitor was
attorney Jeremy Novak, who gave an
excellent presentation regarding the
importance of attorneys. Afterwards,
the group headed to the courthouse
where they were given a complete
tour! The students scanned books
filled with laws from our state's
past up until the present day. The
students gained new appreciation for
the importance of learning to read
and write well. Some "misbehaving"
students were arrested, handcuffed,

fingerprinted, had their "mug shots"
taken, and put in jail. That was an
interesting experience!
Thank you to all of the courthouse
employees who took time out of their
busy day to make our students feel
important.
First grade is most appreciative to
all of our visitors! Your educational
and thoughtful presentations were
truly inspiring.
Thanks to all who participated
in our Operation Christmas Child
outreach. We are truly blessed to be
able to share with Samaritan's Purse.
in this opportunity to bless the lives
of less fortunate children across the


earth. We pray that the contents of
the boxes bless each child with his
particular needs, and that God would
tender the hearts of all to receive the
message of salvation through Jesus
Christ.
Don't forget that the Antiquities
Studio will be here on Saturday, Nov.
15. For only $10 you can have a 10x13
portrait made of your childrenn.
Contact the school at 229-6707 to
schedule an appointment. Coupons
are available at the school.
Volunteers are needed to plan and
work on the FCS Christmas float!
Please contact Sharon Burdeshaw at
642-5629 if you can help in any way.

FWC DIVISION OF LAW ENFORCEMENT FIELD OPERATIONS


This report represents some
events the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
handled Oct. 24-30; however,
it does not include all actions
taken by the Division of Law
Enforcement.

Bay County
A large search and rescue
operation was conducted in the
Pine Log Wildlife Management
Area after a Bay County man
failed to return to his truck after
bow hunting. Ground units were
comprised of Lt. Hampton Yates,
Lt. Jay Chesser and Officers
Warren Walsingham, Mike
Nobles, Jim Moore, David Brady,
Dennis Palmer, Larry Morris
and Kathy Jackson. They were
assisted by members of the Bay
and Washington County Sheriff's
Offices and the Bay County Search
and Rescue Squad. Air searches


were conducted by FWC and Bay
County Sheriff's Office helicop-
ters. The subject was located the
following day around noon as he
crossed State 79. He was checked
by emergency medical personnel
and was found to be exhausted
and somewhat disoriented, but
otherwise in good health.

Washington County
Officer Warren Walsingham
located a baited dove field near
Vernon and observed four adults
and one juvenile taking dove
over bait and issued citations.
In addition, Walsingham issued
two warnings for no migratory
bird permit while conducting the
license checks.


Officer Larry
responded to assist
Warren Walsingham
Choctawhatchee River


Morris
Officer
on the
Wildlife


Management Area concern-
ing possible hunting by illegal
methods during archery season.
The officers observed two sub-
jects using muzzleloaders dur-
ing the archery season. Citations
for hunting with firearms dur-
ing archery season, possession
of cannabis and possession of
drug paraphernalia were issued
to both subjects. Officer Morris
issued two warnings for an
expired hunting license and no
wildlife management area per-
mit.

Okaloosa County
On Oct. 25, Officer Alan
Kirchinger observed a subject
hunting over bait within the
Blackwater Wildlife Management
Area near Edie Cotton Road.
Officer Kirchinger observed the
hunter use white oak acorns
and swamp oak acorns on a red


oak ridge. This hunter had been
charged twice before for hunting
over bait. Kirchinger seized a
Matthews DXT compound bow
as result of the case. Subsequent
to the case, a wildlife techni-
cian and forestry specialist have
examined the area and provided
statements supporting that the
acorns could not have come from
the trees in the area.
On Oct. 26, Lt. Mark Hollinhead
and Officer Van Barrow checked
individuals dove hunting after
observing them picking up their
dove and preparing to leave the
field. An inspection of the hunt-
ers' game bags and vehicles
revealed two of them were in
possession of over the daily bag
limit of dove. Both subjects were
cited for possession of over the
daily bag limit of dove.
On Oct. 26, Officer Van Barrow
received a complaint regarding a
deer that was shot in a field at night


around the Escambia Farms area.
The complainant provided a tag
number to a vehicle that entered
the field to retrieve the deer after
it had been shot. The Alabama
tag number identified the suspect
from Brewton, Alabama. Lt. Mark
Hollinhead and Officer Barrow met
with an Alabama Fish and Wildlife
Officer who assisted them with the
investigation which resulted in the
vehicle being located and the sus-
pect identified. The Alabama Fish
and Wildlife Commission are at-
tempting to locate and interview
the suspect.
On October 27, Officer Matt
Webb observed a subject hunting
over bait from a tree stand on
Eglin Air Force Base Wildlife
Management Area. Lt. Hollinhead
and Officer Webb located the bait-
ed area a few days earlier. The
subject was cited for attempting
to take deer over bait on a wild-
life management area.

The subject properties, to-
taling approximately 130
acres, are identified on the
attached Figure 2-2 from
that Port Master Plan and
include "Port Land",
"Parcel A", and "Parcel B"
within the Port Planning
Area, and an additional 20
acres on the "Former Pa-
per Mill Site" that includes
1,000 feet on the existing
bulkhead at that site. That
Bulkhead Site is located
on the existing turning ba-
sin and ship channel. The
PA anticipates initiating
port cargo operations on
that site immediately while
efforts are underway to de-
velop Parcel A as the per-
manent deep water port
site.

Parcel A is an undevel-
oped site, a portion of
which is a brownfield. The
primary objective of this
RFQ is to secure a team
with the capabilities and
commitment to acquire the
permitting and funding, to
plan and design the infra-
structure and improve-
ments (dredging, bulk-
head, rail, road, utilities,
security, etc.), and to pro-
vide construction manage-
ment to develop the site
into an operational deep-
water port as quickly as
possible.

Parcel B is owned by the
PA and the construction of
a bulkhead is underway on
the Canal waterfront of that
site. Parcels A and B are
readily accessible from
each other via a lengthy
grade separation under
the U.S. Highway 98
Bridge; that bridge has a
vertical clearance of 75
feet over the Canal. These
features present opportuni-
ties for Parcel B to be a
support area for cargo op-
erations initiated either on
the waterfront of the newly
developed Parcel A or on
the Canal waterfront of
Parcel B.

The Port St. Joe Ship
Channel is a Federal
channel Congressionally
authorized to a depth of 35
feet, though maintenance
dredging has not been
performed in many years
and is badly needed. The
Parcel A improvements will
require new deepwater ac-
cess with depth of 35 feet.
The Canal channel is a
part of the Gulf Intracoastal
Waterway and is author-
ized to a depth of twelve
feet; however, the Parcel B
bulkhead is designed for a
depth of 22 feet in antici-
pation of possible deepen-
ing of the Canal to that
property so that some
oceangoing vessels can
access it. In light of these
needs, dredge project per-
mitting and design will be
a major component of the
work effort assigned to the
successful team.

Funding of the improve-
ments is vital and therefore
a priority task of the se-
lected team will be to as-
sist in the pursuit of fund-
ing through all available
channels. The PA is a
member of the Florida
Ports Council and the Flor-
ida Seaport Transportation
Economic Development
Council, is authorized in
statute to secure funding
through bonds, and is an
independent special dis-
trict with members ap-
pointed by the Governor of
Florida. Each of these rep-
resents funding opportuni-
ties; it is expected that
many others must be ex-
plored, including
public-private partnership,
in order to accomplish the
objective of an operational
deepwater seaport at Port
St. Joe. Consequently, the
PA welcomes the interest
of potential private part-
ners who may wish to re-
spond to this RFQ. One
likely task of the selected
team is the preparation of
planning, market, and fi-
nancial documents that
could be used to solicit the
interests of private part-
ners or investors or to sup-
port a bond issue, loan, or
combination of funding
mechanisms.

A vital component of fund-
ing is a reliable revenue
stream. As such, it is antic-
ipated that the selected
team must develop and,
after PA approval, imple-
ment a marketing strategy
that will attract customers,
tenants, users, and/or part-
ners to the Port of Port St.
Joe. There is little if any in-
terest in an expensive print
advertising campaign; in-
stead respondents should
communicate their ideas
and strategy for attracting
customers users, tenants,
and port-related industry
to the Port St. Joe area as
he selected team is ex-
pected to be a vital com-
ponent to a port marketing
effort.

STATE OF FLORIDA DE-
PARTMENT OF ENVI-
RONMENTAL PROTEC-
TION CONSOLIDATED
NOTICE OF INTENT TO
ISSUE PERMIT AND AU-
THORIZATION TO USE
SOVEREIGN SUB-
MERGED LANDS

The Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection gives
notice of its intent to issue
a joint coastal permit (File
No. 0289951-001-JC) and
grant a letter of consent
and public easement to
use sovereign submerged
lands to Gulf County, c/o
Mr. Don Butler, Chief Ad-
ministrator, 1000 Cecil G.
Costin Sr. Blvd. Port St.
Joe, FL 32456, to recon-
struct the existing revet-
ment at cape San Bias, SR
30-E. The existing revet-
ment will be removed by
sections and the materials
will be reused, and aug-
mented with additional ar-
mor stone, to construct a
new revetment that would
remain stable during a 30
to 50-year return interval
storm event, including
wave overtopping during
peak conditions. The total
project length is approxi-
mately 1,550 linear feet
and will include raising the
elevation of the existing
structure to a constant
+12 feet NAVD 1988 along
the "apex" of the structure
(near R-106) and +10 feet
NAVD 1988 along the
northern and southern
limits.

The Stump Hole revetment
construction activity is lo-
cated at Cape San Bias,
State Road 30 E, between
DEP monuments R-104
and R-107, Gulf County,
Section 20, Township 9
South, Range 11 West,
Gulf of Mexico, Class III
Waters, St. Joseph Bay
Aquatic Preserve, Out-
standing Florida Waters.

A person whose substan-
tial interests are affected
by the Department's action
may petition for an admin-
istrative hearing in accord-
ance with sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida. Stat-
utes (FS). The petition
must contain the informa-
tion set forth below and
must be filed (received by
the clerk) in the Office of
General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000.

Because the administrative
hearing process is de-
signed to redetermine final
agency action on the ap-
plication, the filing of a pe-
tition for an administrative
hearing may result in a
modification of the permit
or even a denial of the ap-
plication. Under rule
62-110.106(4), Florida Ad-
ministrative Code, a per-
son whose substantial in-
terests are affected by the
Department's action may
also request an extension
of time to file a petition for
an administrative hearing.
The Department may, for
good cause shown, grant
the request for an exten-
sion of time. Requests for
extension of time must be
filed with the Office of Gen-
eral Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, before
the applicable deadline. A
timely request for exten-
sion of time shall toll the
running of the time period
for filing a petition until the
request is acted upon. If a
request is filed late, the
Department may still grant
it upon a motion by the re-
questing party showing
that the failure to file a re-
quest for an extension of
time before the deadline
was the result of excusable
neglect.

In the event that a timely
and sufficient petition for
an administrative hearing
is filed, other persons
whose substantial interests
will be affected by the out-
come of the administrative
process have the right to
petition to intervene in the
proceeding. Any interven-
tion will be only at the dis-
cretion of the presiding
judge upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with
rule 28-106.205, FA.C.

In accordance with rules
28-106.111(2) and
62-110.106(3)(a)(1),
FA.C., petitions for an ad-
ministrative hearing by the
applicant must be filed
within 14 days of receipt of
this written notice. Peti-
tions filed by any persons
other than the applicant.
and other than those enti-
tled to written notice under
section 12060(3), FS,
must be filed within 14
days of publication of the
notice or within 14 days of
receipt of the written no-
tlice, whichever occurs first.
Under section 120.60(3),
FS., however, any person
who has asked the Depart-
ment for notice of agency
action may file a petition
within 14 days of receipt of
such notice, regardless of
the date of publication.
