Port leaps



another


hurdle

By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
Another significant milestone
reached by the Port of Port St. Joe.
Port officials recently were
informed by the secretary of the
Florida Department of, Transpor-
tation that the Port of Port St. Joe
has earned a designation as an
"emerging" Strategic Intermodal
System (SIS) facility, recognizing
the port as a rising star in the
state's constellation of seaports
and opening funding taps to grow
rail, water and highway infrastruc-
ture to support port activities.
'"This designation absolutely
assures us there is a port in our
future," said Port Authority chair-
man Allen Cox. "We have placed
Poit St. Joe at the table to be a
capital investment (for Florida in
the future)." ,
A grant from the FDOT's Dis-
trict III office helped fund the:
study that determined that the
Port of Port St. Joe, alone among
the state's 14 deepwater ports in
lack of build-out and operations,
could fit in the state's SIS, which .
was created earlier this decade to
facilitate the movement of people
and goods.
The Port of Port St. Joe, in fact,
becomes the first new addition to
the SIS since its inception in 2003.
While the port did not meet the
criteria for full inclusion in the SIS,
its designation as an "emerging"
SIS facility indicates that the port.
will meet that criteria within the
first three years of operation.
"The focus is on efficient move-
ment of goods and people," said
Tommy Pitts. executive director of
the Port Authority. "The key is con-
nectivity:"
.Therefore, in designating the
port as an emerging SIS facility
/ the state included waterway and
rail connections to the port in the
ermerging SIS facility designation.
The water connectors froni the.
port include the harbor channel
and turning basin along the north
and entrance channels to the Gull
* Coast shipping lane, while the ex-
isting AN Railway line, operated by
S Genesee and Wyoming, serves as a
rail connector from the port to the
existing CSX SIS Rail Corridor.
"The (SIS designation) is more
of an opportunity for funding for
that connectivity," Pitts said, adding
that as operations at the port grow
a highway component likely will be,
added to the SIS designation.
By law, the FDOT is charged
with spending up fo 75 percent of
its discretionary funding on the
SIS system.
"This is a very significant mile-
stone for the port," Cox said. "This
(building the port to operational sta-
tus) is an incremental process and it
is essential we take these steps."
There are plenty of other steps
being taken in growing the port.
The bulkhead and dredging
work surrounding 'the so-called
Parcel B, approximately 60 acres
purchased from The St. Joe
Company which sits beneath the
Tapper Bridge along the county
canal, is 90 percent complete and
the Port Authority recently final-
ized a contract for clearing of the
uplands on the tract.
The bulkhead, which will be the-
center of barge activities for the
port, should begin receiving ships
in the next 120-180 days, Cox and

DREAM

By Tim Croft
Star News Editor

They set a goal, they
worked hard and they
reached, the brass ring.,
The world now awaits.
An Odyssey of the Mind
team from Port St. Joe
High School set a couple
of firsts during state com-
petition two weeks ago as
the squad became the first
from the high .school to
reach the summit of Odys-
sey of the Mind competi-
tion and one of the team's
members captured the
nost prestigious award.

-^e-


SGO TO IOW


The team, coached by
Carla May and consisting
of Jesse Raffield, Douglas
May, Heat her Strange, Jon
Endres, Sara Hoffman,
Erica Protsman and Katie
McNeill, took first at state
to earn a trip to the, Od-
yssey of the Mind World
Competition, to be held
this year from May 27-30
at Iowa State University in
Ames, Iowa.
"Odyssey of the Mind is
great," said school board
chairman George Cox in
recalling this is the third
year in a row the county
has sent an OM team to
Worlds, where only the top
two teams from state are
accepted. "You are with the
best people in the world,
not just the state. The com-
petition is stiff."
In addition, Raffield,
who created a robot and
drive remote-control
mechanism that used pen-
nies to help fuel five differ-
ent actions by a robot at the
center of the team's skit,
won the Ranatra Fusca
Creativity Award, the high-
est honor given in Odyssey
of the Mind.
"We laew we were ei-
ther going to be first or
second," said Heather
SStrange of the state
competition, which at
the high school level
included seven other
teams in their" problem-
solving division, the tough-

est division in OM. "So we
were going to worlds or we
were going to be last."
Hoffman chimed in, "It
was really= exciting. We
kind of expected it."
To which Strange add-
ed, "It feels great. We've
been together so long."
Added McNeill, "That's
exactly why everything
pulled through."
That easy banter, the
finishing of other's sen-
tences, the camaraderie
flowing during,a lunch in
their honor might just be
this team's secret weapon.
Douglas May, Strange
and Raffield are all seniors.
Hoffman and Endres are


juniors and Protsman and
McNeil] are both sopho-
mores.
"Most of this team has
been together though high
school and middle school,"
Carla May said. "This was
their goal. This was their
last chance."
As Hoffman put it,
"We've all grown up togeth-
er so if anybody said they
weren't going to do it, we
would hunt them down."
In short strokes, Odys-
sey of the Mind is a creative
problem-solving competi-
tion for students of all ages,
elementary to high school.

ODYSSEY from page Al


Thursday, April 16,.2009


Some members of the team
shared duties dating to el-
ementary school.
Students select a prob-
lem, create a solution
which is revealed during
a typically humorous skit
and present the solution
against other teams seek-
ing a solution to the same
problem. There is also
a spontaneous problem,
verbal or hands-on, which
comprises the second seg-
ment of the competition.
The group was deter-
mined to stand alone in
the region this year, and
scored a 99 on their verbal
spontaneous problem at
state.


And they had a secret
weapon of sorts in the pro-
digious brain of Jesse Raf-
field, who indicated he in-
tends to pursue theoretical
physics in college, much to
the surprise of this reporter
whose experiences in high
school and college had indi-
cated that all physics were
theoretical.
What Raffield did (see
sidebar) was create and
engineer a WiFi robot com-
mand system using the
raw power of pennies yep,
those copper things after
which a shoe was named
- to operate a raccoon the
team came to call the "Ro-
bocoon."


The size of the robot,
about four feet tall, is such
that Raffield transports
it by strapping it into the
front seat of his car.
The pennies are in gloves
and a module on his chest,
and connected by wiring a
backpack on Raffield's back.
By activating specific pen-
nies, Raffield sends a sig-
nal to the backpack which
in. turn signals the robot,
which can accomplish up to
a dozen commands.
The point of the skit was
to show the robot both per-
forming commands on its
own, as well as commands
it might learn. The perfor-
mance must be entirely cre-


ated and performed by the
students, who have a bud-
get of no more than $145.
"I always wanted to
build a robot and I just
saw what other people had
done and got some ideas,"
the soft-spoken Raffield
said when prodded.
As McNeill and Strange
both noted, a judge, who
happened to be, literally,
a rocket scientist called it
"the most amazing piece
of mechanics he had ever
seen," Strange said.
Hoffman added, "I think
we were more excited for
Jesse. We cried."
Protsman said, "When
it got real quiet, I yelled 'I
love you Jesse."'
That is the way it goes
when talking with this
group.
They are an exquisite
blend of introverts and ex-
troverts, performers and
thinkers, talkers and de-
liberators. They are joined
at the end of the Odys-
sey of the Mind season
the way a football team is
joined at the end of a play-
off run, a chemistry that
defies description, a f4ct
Hoffman noted when she
said one of the comments,
she heard from the judges
was that the team had
"great chemistry."
"We all balance each
other really well," Strange
said. "I've wanted to go
to Worlds since I was in
fourth grade.
"I definitely think we
made a statement for oth-
ers to follow. We are the
first team from Port St.
Joe to go to Worlds and
Jesse won the Ranatra."
Douglas May added, "It
is completely mind-blow-
ing. That is what getting to
Worlds is."
But there is still work
to do. The team is making
adjustments to their skit
and the actions the robot
takes during their time on
stage. They are seeking the
next rung, a high place at
Worlds.
"We had our regional di-
rector say if we tweaked a
few things we had a chance
to win Worlds," McNeill
said.


For creating his, robot, Jesse Raffield won the
most prestigious honor in OM, the Ranatra
Fusca Award.

NOMINATION
In nominating Jesse Raffield for the Ranatra
Fusca Award, the judges wrote that Raffield
showed exceptional creativity in "his visionary
design of both the electrical and mechanical
components. He changed from a reliable
computer-driven control to a daring and high-
risk taking design for state competition. He
re-enyisioned the mechanics of the switch,
using coins attached to white gloves along
with an Iron Man-like chest control module of
his own design in which he used to wirelessly
operate the internal circuitry and mechanical
components, resulting in the robot's seamless
interaction with the rest of the performance.
His mastery of the control system was further
demonstrated by his teaching of his teammates
how to understand and operate his complex
system so that they could perform in the event of
his absence. One of our judges was a military
electronics technicians and he was absolutely
awestruck by the genius behind his design and
implementation of his robotics system."

The Star I A3


Marie Logan
Contributing Writer
At the April 7 Port St. Joe City
Commission meeting, commis-
sioners agreed to try to develop
a concept plan for the entire wa-'
terfront park system from Frank
Pate Park to the marina by the
end of April.
Citing "time-sensitive issues"
regarding the concept plan,
Weston recommended the city
hold public workshops to address
the issues involved and allow the
public a chance to comment.
The primary issue involves
land adjacent to the city-owned
parks, that is held by First Baptist
Church and The St. Joe Compa-
ny, and a possible shared-parking
area and right-of-way swap be-
tween the city and the church.
The church owns the land


between U.S. 98 and Maddox
Park, between Third and Fourth
streets. Church officials asked the
city to make a decision as soon as
possible because the new build-
ing's location will depend on the
concept plan and negotiations
with the city.
Mayor Mel Magisdon said the
commission also wanted to "move
forward on this" so the city could
pursue grant funding for the wa-
terfront park project.
He emphasized the need for
well-attended public workshops
on the issued and scheduled
those workshops for 5 p.m. ET
April 21 and 27. The city commis-
sion would then hold a special
meeting at 5 p.m. ET April 30 to
decide how to proceed.
In other business conducted
at the meeting:


Commissioners voted 5-0 to
allow Gulf County residents, not
just Port St. Joe residents, to pur-
chase plots in the two city-owned
cemeteries. This includes long-
time residents who moved away
from the city or county in later
years along with specifically des-
ignated family members.
City manager Charlie Weston
recommended the city not par-
ticipate in the corporate program
offered to, the city by Coastal Fit-
ness on Reid Avenue because of
city budget constraints. The board
agreed with the recommendation.
Commissioners decided to
ask the county for an exemption
from a $50 tipping fees for use
of the county landfill until Oct. 11
since no money was set aside in
the current city budget to cover
such fees.


According to Weston, plumb-
ing contractors are supposed to
have 100 percent of White City
residents hooked to the new sew-
er system by April 30.
*In answer to a letter from the
county commissioners, Weston
reported that, based on a cost re-
port from Gulf Asphalt Company
(GAC), the final hookups for the
Overstreet water system would
be finished by July 1.
Commissioners discussed
the county's request for an abate-
ment for an unspecified time pe-
riod on the county's portion of the
levy for the Port St. Joe Redevel-
opment Agency.
Citing the projected severe
drop in county property valua-
tions for the 2009-10 budget year,
the county asked for "consider-,
ation of DRA abatement in any


amount for any period of time."
After considerable discussion,
including input by several down-
town merchants, the commission
decided to wait on a decision until
closer to 2009-10 budget consid-
erations.
Commissioner Charles Ste-
phens made a motion, seconded
by Commissioner John Reeves,
to remove the three-way stop at
the intersection of Long Avenue
and Tenth Street.
Saying they had heard more
complaints about the recently in-
stalled three-way stop than on any
other issue, Stephens, Reeves and
Commissioner Perky White voted
3-2 to remove the three-way stop.
Magidson and Commissioner
Rex Buzzett, citing safety issues,
voted unsuccessfully to keep the
three-way stop.

Pitts indicated.
The Port Authority also
has let a contract for en-
gineering work on Parcel
A, another 60 or so acres
leased from The St. Joe
Company, to HDR Engi-
neering, which will partner
with Preble-Rish Engineer-
ing on an extensive multi-
agency study of the land
and surrounding waters to
determine impacts, in par-,
ticular environmental, of a
port operation on the tract,
which sits across U.S. 98
from Parcel B and provides
the Port of Port St. Joe with
access to the gulf and ship-
ping channel.
The study and permit-
ting will likely require nine
months to complete, Cox
said.
As for the mill site bulk-


head, where the Port Au-
thority secured a shorter-
term lease from The St. Joe
Company, a security study
is in the final stages for sub-
mittal to Homeland Secu-
rity for approval. Once ap-
proved, the Port Authority
could begin putting up the
proper .fencing and light-
ing for security around the
bulkhead.
That could mean the
Port of Port St. Joe could
begin seeing international
ship traffic at the mill site
bulkhead, from ships with a
draft of up to 25 feet, within
the next 90-120 days, Cox
and Pitts said.
The Port Authority al-
ready has one customer
contracted to use the mill
site and according to the
draft letter for the SIS des-


ignition the Port Authority
has two other customers
committed to conduct daily
operations at the port.
The Port Authority is
seeking an interim agree-
ment from the Coast Guard
to begin operations and has
already received approval
for anchoring ships parallel
to the shipping channel in
what long-time locals know
as the dynamite area, so-
named for when dynamite
was brought to the area in-
the 1940s and '50s.
"We are taking resourc-
es established 40 and.50
years ago and reactivating
them," Cox said. "We are
building on the port capabil-
ity that was already there.
"We are building an in-
dustrial port that will create
jobs."

Our VIEW


Connecting communities: New road connects St. Joe


The connector road between
downtown on the south side of the old
rail bed in Port St. Joe and the north
side, as city commissioners recently
agreed, is a fine idea in concept.
The road would connect Williams
Avenue and Martin Luther King,
Jr. Blvd. and most of the design
elements and potential costs have
been outlined, with Preble-Rish
Engineering and Gulf Asphalt
agreeing to discounted costs on the
project.
The city's official stance'on the
road comes at a time when a group
of citizens in the neighborhood north,
of the rail bed actively seek to have
their community no longer divided,
linguistically and symbolically, from
the rest of Port St. Joe by slapping a
directional adjective in front of the
city's name.
Of all the many infrastructure
projects the city is now undertaking
or considering, this is one most
worthy of fast-tracking.
' That willmean the quick and tidy
approval and necessary paperwork
from The St. Joe Company, which
will have the final plan shortly and
must sign off for the road, an idea the
company itself floated six or seven
years ago.
But connecting the two
communities by way of asphalt and
road striping are just steps.
As part of the construction of the
connector road, several other steps
should be taken.
One, the county and city should
cease all the talk about an abatement
of their statutory debt and just pay
the redevelopment agency's bill each
year.
The coming years will be tough on


the budget though what taxpayer
outrage could not do property values
just might when it comes to the
-county but this is chump change
compared to the overallpie.
Not to mention that the payments
figure to fall with property values for
at least the two years the county has
asked for an abatement of its bill.
And to address the argument
that since neither paid their annual
increments of property.tax revenue.
for nearly 10 years, what is two years
going to hurt?
Not having paid for nearly .
decade indicates one,of two things at
the time the redevelopment agency
was established:
Elected officials either didn't pay
attention when the ordinances were
approved which would hardly be
the first or last time for that option
or they counted on don't-ask-don't-
pay as one of the abiding mission
statements when it came to the
dynamics with the agency.
That the county supported,
however reluctantly, the expansion of
the boundaries to include nearly all
of Port St. Joe was a positive step'and
one the Port St. Joe Redevelopment
Agency should heed as it moves:
forward.
For in exchange for the end of
the abatement on the due debts
discussions, the agency should
concentrate those dollars for the
next several years north of the old
rail bed.
It is true that revenue is not
likely to be generated out of the
neighborhood in the foreseeable
future as property values drop
everywhere else in the county and
a base year must be established

Here is hoping: Promises from State Attorney Glenn Hess


When asked to come
to the podium at the onset
of a county commission
meeting recently, State
.Attorney Glenn Hess said
that the county would
be receiving a lot more
attention from his office in
the future.


This space has long
advocated grand jury
examination of various
aspects of county
government, from how the
jail operates to bidding
procedures to how
contracts are awarded
and dollars spent in the


absence of a work order
system.
Despite repeated
campaign promises,
Hess's predecessor Steve
Meadows only made the
trip to Gulf County for a
grand jury once. i
We hope Mr. Hess is a


man of his word and that in
the coming months a grand
jury will be empanelled that
will, as grand juries are
able as few other levers of
government, thoroughly
examine county operations.
Taxpayers could use the
help, Mr. Hess.

And we informed her that

the center of the house,

for a week. It would have
to be stagnate and unfit

wouldn't taste nothing like
the water right out of the

behind George Sexton's
house. We also wondered
if a Russian pilot could see


the lights from our little
house from 20,000 feet up.
And how could that hard
hat help anybody in case of
a direct hit.
The G-man moved on
,to warn the citizens at
Atwood, Bruceton and
Hollow Rock and me and
Dave tired of the constant
digging. The radiation
couldn't be any worse than
the blisters and we'd been
breathing this dust for
weeks now! We kept at it
until the baseball season
started. We called a halt
to catch ground balls and
break Leon's homerun
record. By the fall of 1959
we were trying football
in junior high and Walter
Cronkite had shifted his
focus to some way off place
called Vietnam.
We knew the Soviet
threat was still there

leaned to cope with it. Life

out shelter. By the early

And what better beginning than

The Langston Education Center

Americus Avenue storm water pipes rise again


By Despina Williams
SStar StaffWriter

The rivers were not the only things
rising during the rainstorm of two
weeks ago.
Two segments of storm water
pipe one 30-foot, another 20-foot in
length burst through the soil along
Americus Avenue in St. Joe Beach,
resembling giant earthworms or the
creatures from the B-movie, Trem-
ors.
County administrator Don But-
ler refuted talk among townspeople
that the pipe had been improperly in-
stalled by Wewahitchka contractors,
SBailey and Sons.
S '"It has nothing to do with the way
it was laid," said Butler, who.blamed
the pipe's surfacing on insufficient
ground cover.
Butler did, however, acknowledge
that this was not the first time the
Americu's Avenue pipe rose unexpect-
edly from the soil.
SAyear ago, Bailey and Sons began
installing'the pipe based on the speci-
ficatidns of project engineers Preble-
Rish.
The county purchased double jack-
S et pipe, which features a corrugated
S exterior and smooth interior surface.
The contractor began laying the
pipe at the out-fall ditch, which trav-
els from Americus Avenue to the Gulf
of Mexico.
Butler estimated that a fifth of the
pipe had been installed when a rain-
storm caused a portion of the pipe to .

To remedy the problem of the float-

the county drill perforations along
each rib of the corrugated pipe, or
approximately every three to four
inches.
Water flowing through the holes
would weigh the pipes down, keeping
them at the designated depths.

Butler said the county plans to.
perforate the two segments of pipe as
soon as the groundwater dries.
Fqr a temporary solution, the coun-
ty has dumped truckloads of sand on
top of the pipes to keep them'from
floating.
"Once we perforate these pipes, we
shouldn't have a problem, even with
a limited amount of cover on them,"
said Butler.
But given the history of the Ameri-

If future problems arise, Butler
said the county will re-route culverts
on the side streets running perpen-
dicular to the Americus ditch.
Water from the culverts would then
run into the pipes, serving to weigh
them down.
Butler expects work to commence
on the pipes in the next few weeks.

Wewahitchka High Gators split during the week


Thursday, April 9

Wewahitchka 18, Covenant Christian 0

The visiting Lions of Covenant Chris-
tian were no match for Gators as they fell
18-0 in a run-rule shortened game. Cody
Wade got the scoring barrage starting
in the first inning when he drew a walk,
Ryan Leaman singled and Brandon
Mayhann walked loading the bases. Billy
Peak was hit by a pitch scoring Wade and
Chance Knowles singled scoring Lea-
man and Mayhann. Chase Harvey fol-
lowed with a single driving in Peak and
Knowles. After Beau McCorvey struck'
out, Baylen Price doubled and Josh Lol-
lie hit a sacrifice fly to right field scor-
ing Harvey. Cody Wade singled scoring
Price, Leaman singled plating Wade and
Mayhann drove in Leaman with a single
to give the Gators a 9-0 lead after one in-
ning of play.
Price started on the mound and im-


proved his record to 4-0 as he threw
three scoreless innings allowing three
hits and two walks. Heath Bailey and Mc-
Corvey each threw one inning of score-
less baseball striking out two batters in
each inning.
Peak was 2 for 2 with a home run and
4 RBIs for the Gators. Mayhann was 2 for
3 with a double and 3 RBIs, Leaman was
2 for 2 with 2 RBIs, and Knowles with a
double and two RBI.

Liberty County 2, Wewahitbhka 1

Playing before a large and enthusi-
astic crowd, the visiting Liberty County
Bulldogs rallied for two runs in the sixth
inning to defeat the Gators in a district
baseball game. Trailing 1-0 after five in-
nings, the Bulldogs scored the tying run
on a wild pitch and the go-ahead run on a
dramatic suicide squeeze bunt.


The two teams played scoreless base-
ball for three innings and Gator start-
ing pitcher David Strickland held the
Bulldogs scoreless in the fourth inning.
In the bottom of the fourth, Chase Har-
vey walked and Strickland reached base
when the Bulldogs got Harvey on an
unsuccessful sacrifice bunt. Strickland
advanced to second on a wild pitch and
scored when Josh Lollie singled to right-
center field giving the Gators a 1-0 lead.
SThe big story of the game was good
defense and great pitching by Strickland
and Bulldog pitcher Ryan Travis, who
one hit the Gators and threw a complete
game striking out 10.
Both teams are 3-2 in the district, with
an upcoming district game versus Port
St. Joe next week. The Gators record fell
to 11-9 overall and Liberty County im-
proved their record, to 14-5.
,Wewahitchka will host Covenant
Christian today, Marianna Friday and
Chipley Monday. Game time is 6 p.m.
CST for all three games.


Baylen Price pitching against Covenant
'Christian. Price is now 4-0.

Florida Freedom Newspapers
PANAMA CITY BEACH De-
Shaun Winfield isn't neces-
sarily one for "I told you
so," but given the Franklin
County senior's perfor-
mance in the East's 100-88
win over the West in the
fifth annual Freedom All-
Star Classic, no one would
blame him for a sudden
change of heart.
Just three days re-
nmoved from boldly pre-
dicting a 111-82 win for his
team, Winfield led'the East
with 16 :points in a 100-88
win at Gulf Coast. Commu-
nity College.
"DeShaun is tremen-
dous," East coach Cas
Gant said. "He's an ath-
lete. He just stepped out
here and played his game
hard all the time."
According to Win-
field, Saturday's all-star
game went just as he had
planned.
"Our main goal was to
come out here and score,"
Winfield said. "We knew
that they were slower than
us, that's why they were
playing zone. We knew
if we could get the ball.
and rin we were going to
win."
In all, six East players
finished in double-figures
scoring with Winfield (16),
Darryus Stewart (12),
Fonda Davis (12), Mark
Troncale (11), Chris Blount
(10) and Darrien Mack (10)
pacing an East attack that
proved unrelenting and
difficult to stop.
"They made some
plays," West head coach
John Lavin said. "They
shot it very well, it just
seemed like everything
was easy for them.
"I'm not sure how much
defense we played, but
they were obviously the
better team tonight."
The win tilted the all-
time series record into the
East's favor, with the team
selected by the Panama
City News Herald now
holding a 3-2 advantage.
From the outset it ap-
peared that the West would
be in for an uphill climb.
Trailing by as much as
12 in the early stages of the
first half, the West man-
aged to trim the East's
sizeable lead with a 13-5
run late in the first that
was fueled by the rebound-
ing work of Paxton's Zack


Vickers and Crestview's
Darius Applewhite.
Choctawhatchee's Tom-
my Brassell hit a running
jumper to make it a 33-
29 East lead before Nice-
ville's Billy Billings scored
two of his 13 inside to make
it a 33-31 game with 3:02 re-
maining before the half.
"We didn't want to get
in a deeper hole than we
already had," Lavin said.
"The kids responded, we.
got back into it."
But following a timeout
of its own, the East awoke.
Two West turnovers led
to four quick points for the
East, which closed the half
on a: 10-4 run. Once play
resumed, so did the East's
onslaught.
Troncale drew a cheer
from the crowd when the
Arnold product somehow
managed to keep his drib-
ble alive despite getting
knocked to the floor, and
then passed to Jacob Her-.
ring who drilled a 3-point-
er. On the next East pos-
session, Troncale called
his own number, hitting
another '3 to put the East
ahead 66-44.
The West would keep
things interesting, though,
with Vickers leading the
way, scoring a game-high
17 points to go along with
14 rebounds to become the
game's lone player to re-
cord a double-double.
Mike Shepherd (10
points) and Stephen Shel-
ley (10) joined Vickers and
Billings as the West's dou-
ble-figure scorers. Apple-
white finished with eight
points and 10 rebounds.
"We won portions of the
game," Billings said after-
ward. "But they beat us
more than we beat them."

Like father, like son


On Jan. 21, a Wednes-
day afternoon, Bobby
Lewis Gay, Jr. took down
his first two deer. He had
just celebrated his sev-
enth birthday five days
before this exciting day
happened.
At the age of 10 his dad-
dy, Bobby Gay, took down
his first two deer on a cold
morning in Georgia with
his father Robert Gay, and
the deer were a spike and
a doe.
On Jan 21, Bobby Gay,
Jr. and his Paw Paw Gay
knew that Bobby was
smiling down from Heav-
en above when his son
took dowp this five-point
and spike with his daddy's
rifle.


Now' going on four
months later, Bobby Gay,
Jr. and his step-dad that he
calls "His Scoot," Scooter
Braswell has taken his
five-point deer and has
skinned it out as a skull
mount to put on the wall
and to continue carrying
the memories of hunting
and fishing as his father
would still be loving to do.

Gulf red snapper
season on hold
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) reminds an-
glers that the recreational
harvest season for red snap-
per in Gulf of Mexico waters
has changed. The open sea-
son now takes place from
June 1 through Sept. 30.
Previously, the recre-
ational red snapper harvest'
season opened on April 15
in Gulf state waters, and
the season in Gulf federal
waters opened on April 21.
Now, the recreational har-
vest season for red snapper
in all Gulf waters off Florida
does not open until June 1.
Researchers consider
Gulf red snapper to be
overfished (in the past) and


undergoing more overfish-
ing now. A shorter fishing
season will reduce the har-
vest of Gulf red snapper and
help rebuild the fishery's
population.

garding the management
of Gulf red snapper is

Notice of a Finding of
SNo Significant Impact
The USDA, Rural Utilities Service has received an ap-
plication for financial assistance from theCity of Wewa-
hitchka. The proposed project consists of improvements
to two separate areas within the City of Wewahitchka.
The first area of improvements are to the existing Lake
Grove Road Water Facility and will consist of four (4)
new.pumps, a new 315,000 gallon ground storage tank
and a hew hydro-pneumatic tank at that facility.
The second area of improvements will include con-
structing a new water facility in the areas of Stone Mill
Creek. These improvements will consist of two wells, a
booster pump, a 315,000 gallon ground storage tank and
pumping facility that include chlorination treatment and
aeration. The Stone Mill Creek improvements will also
include the installation of new water lines shown in the
map below. Not all of the water lines will be constructed
in the first phase.
As required by the National Environmental Policy Act
and agency regulations, the Rural Utilities Service pre-
pared an Environmental Assessment of the proposal that
assessed the potential environmental effects of the pro-
posal and the effect of the proposal may have on his-
toric properties. The Environmental Assessment was.
published on November 13, 2008 for a 30-day public
comment period. No public comments were received
during that time. Upon consideration of the applicant's
proposal, federal and state environmental regulatory and
natural resource agencies, and public input the agency
has determined that the proposal will not have a signifi-
cant effect on the human environment and for which an
Environment Impact Statement will npt be prepared. The
basis of this determination is the proposed project meets
the classification criteria for an environmental assess-
ment and all comments and outstanding issues have been
addressed and resolved to the extent possible.
Copies of the EnvironmentalAssessment can be reviewed
or obtained at USDA, Rural Development, 2741 Penn-
sylvania Avenue, Suite 5, Marianna, FL 32448-4014. For
further information contact Mary Gavin at the Marianna

You saw them in the newspaper and on our website.
Now come see the Peep shows in person.
The staffs of The Star and The Times invite the com-
munity to attend our "Peeps and Punch" open house
and diorama pick-up today from 5:30-6:30 p.m. ET at
The Star office.
The 42 entries in our second annual Panhandle Peep
Show diorama contest will be on display for public view-
ing.
We'll award fabulous prizes to our winners, including
gift boxes from Just Boin, Inc. (the makers of Peeps)
and LuLu's Sweet Expectations. Participants will also
receive a special treat.
And if staring down an office full of Peeps makes you
hunger for the marshmallow confections, we've got you
covered.
We'll be serving Peeps, along.with punch and cake
from LuLu's.
Though the newspaper staff (and the ants) will hate
to see the dioramas go, we'll allow participants to take
them home after the open house.
The Star is located at 135 W Hwy 98 in the Port City

A how-to guide for fertilizing landscape plants


It's time to be think-
ing about fertilizing your
landscape plants. It's
important to use the
right type and amount of
fertilizer for you different
landscape plants. And to
apply it before the grow-
ing season really begins. RO
The only way you can CA
fertilize plants properly County
is to know something Dir
about the different kinds
of fertilizers that are
available, which ones are need-
ed by your particular landscape
plants. Most of our landscape
contains an assortment of trees,
palms, shrubs, and -hedges. I'll
discuss the different fertilizers
which are needed to keep all of
these plants healthy and attrac-
tive.


I
Y L
RT
Ex
red


The first landscape
plants I'll talk about
Share the shrubs. Shrubs
should be given an all
purpose garden fertil-
izer, such as an 8-8-8 or
10-10-10. Apply the fertil-
izer at the rate of 1 V12 to
.EE 3 pounds per 100 square
ER feet of landscape area.
tension For hedges, the fer-
tor tilizer should be spread
evenly along each side
of the plants. For other
shrubs, simply broadcast it over
the entire area.
Our next group of plants in-
cludes the landscape trees and
palms. To calculate the correct
amount of fertilizer to use you
need to know the trunk diam-
eter of the tree or palm you are
fertilizing. Keep in mind that


tree diameters are measured
four feet up from the soil level.
For trees with trunk diam-
eters of six inches or less, ap-
ply three pounds of 8-8-8 fertil-
izer for every inch of the trunk
diameter. For trees with trunk
diameters larger than 6 inches
use 5 pounds of 8-8-8 fertilizer
for' each inch of diameter. Very
small trees can be fertilized the
same as shrub.
Palm trees can be fertilized
with either an 8-8-8 or 10-10-10
mixtures. Apply the fertilizer at
the rate of 1 pound for each inch
of the trunk diameter. If your
palm is so small that it doesn't
have a woody trunk yet, apply
from 2 to 8 ounces of fertilizer.
This mixture can be broadcast
under the tree's canopy.
In addition to this fertilizer


which provides the major plant"
nutrients, all landscape plants
can benefit from an application
of a minor element mixture.
Many of the all-purpose fertil-
izer on. the market already con-
tain these minor elements. If
not, you'll need to add them.
You can do this by using an
all purpose minor element mix,
such as perk or you can add the
individual elements that are
needed. These usually include
magnesium sulfate, sulfur, iron
sulfate; and manganese sulfate.
The all purpose mixes are
more convenient to use by they
are also more expensive. What-
ever method you choose for
adding minor elements, always
follow the manufacturer's rec-
.ommended rates of application.
Since iron deficiency is a


very common problem in Flor-
ida, you may want to include
chelate iron in your spring fer-
tilizer program. Mix one ounce
of twelve percent chelate iron
in twenty five gallons of water.
This will clear up an iron defi-
ciency in 100 square feet of your
landscape.
It is quite common in Florida
for the soil pH to be too high
causing the minor element to
be tied up in forms that are un-
available to plants. Sulfur or
iron sulfate can be used to lower
the pH of alkaline soils.

For more'information onfer-
,tilizing you landscape plants
please contact the Gulf County
Cooperative Extension Service

TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is reminding people to keep
food safety in mind as they return
home following floods. Floodwa-
ter could be contaminated by sew-
age, pesticides and other hazard-
ous materials that may come in
contact with food. Power outages
could also impact the quality and
safety of perishable food items.
Bronson's Division of Food
Safety is responsible for ensuring
food:safety in Florida, permitting
and inspecting supermarkets and
convenience stores, testing food
for contaminants, and monitoring
food from the farm to the retailer.
"People who are trying to get
their homes back in order after a
flood may not be thinking about
the potential for contaminated
food and water," Bronson said.
Bronson says flood victims
should not drink or use tap water
until local officials have declared
it safe. People with water wells
should also be aware of the po-
tential for contamination. Until
they are certain the water is safe,
people should boil it for at-least
one minute before using it. Some


other food safety tips include:
External surface areas of
canned and packaged items that
may have been in contact with
flood water should be sanitized
with one tablespoon of bleach per
gallon of water. Counters and oth-
er food contact surfaces and uten-
sils should also be sanitized.
Dented or swollen cans and
jars with swollen lids should be
discarded.
Never try to save food in jars
or flexible packages if affected by
flood water.
In the event of power outages:
Throw out perishable food
that has been stored at room tim-
perature for more than two hours.
Keep the refrigerator door
closed as much as possible and
use a refrigerator thermometer
so you can better assess the con-
dition of perishable food.
Never eat frozen food that
has warmed to more than 40 de-
grees.

food safety during and after a
natural disaster, visit the depart-
ment's Division of Food Safety,

Do you serve the risen
Savior? He is still alive
and well.
He was nailed to a
cross,to die for us, to save
our soul from hell.
He did his Father's will,
to pay for our sin.
Only through His blood,
are we going to Win.'
It's something jou can't
buy, good works won't get
it done.
Only through'Jesus,
can salvation be won.
He paid the, supreme
price, the only One who
could.
If you don't know Jesus
as your savior, I'll tell you
why you should.
Satan, the antichrist
and probably an old friend
or two,
Will be thrown into a
lake of fire, without Jesus,
so will you.
So accept Him as your
savior now, keep eternity
in mind:
Thank God for the gift
of salvation and leave your.
sins behind.

The Christian CONSCIENCE


Do You Believe the Bible?
Without much'thought, most in
our vicinity would say, "Yes!" The .
next question is:
Which Bible do you believe?
Some say that the Bible is
infallible. Which Bible do you
think is infallible? I have well over
a dozen Bibles, and have quick
access to a couple of dozen more.
Which is the one that you think is
infallible?
It has been the experience of
this author that few people have
a clue as to what the Bible is, or
what it says. I have found that,
even in the clergy, there are some
who,don't know what the Bible
really is, or where it came from.,
I own well over a dozen different
English Bibles, that is, Bibles,
which are translations of the early
writings into English. While the
differences between them may
seem insignificant to the casual
leader, some of the differences
account for the differences


between churches.
It would be easier if the Bible
was written in English. But
it wasn't. The Old Testament
is a collection of 39 writings
in Hebrew, with the possible
exception of part of the book of
Ezra.
The New Testament is a
collection of 27 writings in Greek,
with a possible exception, being
the Gospel according to Matthew,
which may have originally been
written in Aramaic, and almost
immediately translated into
Greek.
We are fortunate today to live
at a time, when extracting the
truth from the original languages,
is made much easier, by the
existence of resources like the
Strong's Concordance, Young's
Concordance, and interlinear
testaments. These allow a person
not familiar with the original
languages to follow word for
word translations from the early


writings into English.
You might be wondering, "Who
cares?"
SIf you knew that:
"charity" really meant
"unselfish love"
"believe" really meant
"trust" or "obey"
- "abide" really meant
"remain" or "continue"
"born again" really meant
"born from above"
Would you then care a little bit?'
There are a few other truths
from the original languages, that
might cause you to adopt different
ideas concerning your life style
choices, and what you think is
your free ticket to heaven. Yes,
Jesus is the way, but what did
He really say must happen to a..
person?
What does it mean to be "in
Christ?" Did you ever read 2nd
Corinthians 5:17?
SHow do you know the things
that you know? Is it just because

Since it determines whether
your future is comfortable, or very,
very hot, maybe you should do a
little research on your own!
At the Mexico Beach Christian
Worship Center, we proclaim the
truth, from the original writings
of the Bible, even when it doesn't
agree with those around us,
who claim to be Christians. Our
services begin, with a time of
greeting, and fellowship, at 9:30
a.m. CDT on Sunday. Worship
begins at 9:45 a.m. After the

WES students enjoy Easter surprises
Easter baskets delivered by helpers of the Easter Bunny were well received
by the students in Mr. Brown's class. Ms. Flora Blackman, representing the We-
wahitchka VFW Ladies Auxiliary, Post 8285 presented each student with a large
wrapped Easter basket, In addition to the candy eggs and bunnies, the baskets
:also included balls, toys, games, fishing poles, or dolls with accessories. In ad-
dition to special visits as this, the ladies also support the class with money each
month to buy supplies required for the students to perform their daily activities.
Without the additional support from this special group of ladies, the class would
not be able to perform as well as they do.
Wewahitchka Elementary School' is always looking for volunteers in the
classroom. If youcan spare some time during the day, we would appreciate your
lielp. Please call 639-2476 to sign up. We'll keep the light on for you.

Rebecca Barnes, a se-
nior from Wewahitchka High
School spent her third and
last year as a Senate page
sponsored by Senator Al
Lawsori. For more than129
years, the Florida Senate
has given interested young
people the opportunity to ob--
serve and participate in the
legislative process. During
regular sessions of the Flor-
ida Legislature, participating
students from all across the
state have come to Tallahas-
see for one week to assist
members of the Legislature
in carrying out the work of
the people. A one-week limit
is set so that as many young
people as possible have the
opportunity to serve during
the 60-day session. During
their assigned week, Senate
Pages will assist.members of
the Florida Senate by distrib-
uting materials and messag-
es, learn about the legislative
process through a hands-on
approach, and experience
a "mock session" in which
students role-play as Sena-
tors and engage in debating,
discussing and voting on leg-
islation.
Rebecca has enjoyed each
year and 'encourages the
youth in our countyto be a
part of history. Be a Senate
page!

CD and Kenneth did a great
job with 50 to 70 students in a

BBB WARNINGS


Post-flood scams

Your Better Business Bureau
warns homeowners affected by the
recent flooding that scam artists will
try to take advantage of the chaos
during the cleanup. Your BBB advises
homeowners:
Don't be pressured into making
an immediate decision on a permanent
repair. Make temporary repairs if
necessary.
Check with your insurance company
about policy coverage and specific filing
requirements. Save all receipts.
Shop around for contractors,. get
at least three competitive bids from
properly-licensed contractors, check
out references. If possible, homeowners
should visit and inspect completed


projects.
Contact your BBB for a free
Reliability Report on a specific business
by calling 800-729-9226 or visiting
bbb.org. BBB also provides industry
reference lists of all BBB Accredited
Businesses within a specific industry
free-of-charge. All BBB Accredited
Businesses have agreed to uphold BBB
standards for ethics in the marketplace.
SBe wary of door-to-door workers
who claim to have left-over repair
materials or who do not have a
permanent place of business..
SBe leery if a worker shows up on
your doorstep to announce your home
is unsafe. If you are concerned about
possible structural damage in your
home, have an engineer, architect or
building official inspect it.


Prepare a written contract
agreement with anyone you hire.
Make sure oral promises are included
in the written contract, including
warranties on materials or labor. Make
sure the written contract includes
the contractor's full name, address,
telephone number and professional
license number. Never sign a partial or
blank contract.
Ensure the contractor will apply
for all building permits in his or her
name so if the contractor's work does
not pass inspection, you cannot be held
responsible for any corrections that
must be made.
Never pay for all repairs in
advance, and do not pay cash. Don't
make the final payment until the work
passes all required inspections.

Superior Bank


recognizes


young talent
By Despina Williams
Star StaffWriter

As Spring Break neared, Superior Bank asked stu- .4
dents at Port St. Joe*Elementary School what they liked
to do on their week-long vacation.
The students responded with a series of vividly ren- :
dered masterpieces.,
Seven talented young artists took home top prizes in
Superior Bank's Spring Break art contest: kindergarten-
er Blake Gay, second-grader Kyndell Moore, third-grader
Kykeriah Pittman, fourth-grader Hunter Cook, fifth-grad-
er Caroline Rish, ESE student Christian Love, and fifth-
grader Austin Purswell. .
Purswell was named the overall winner for his impres-
sive landscape drawing, which featured puffy clouds and '
a realistic windmill.
For his artistic chops, Purswell earned a beach-themed
goodie bag and gift certificate to Hungry Howies.
Grade-level winners also received Hungry Howies gift
certificates.
Superior Bank thanks all those who participated in the "
art contest. AR nVE H l;n,
