(ounty to receive
.
stimulus money

By Marie Logan
Contributing Writer
The Gulf County Board of County
Commissioners got some good news
at the May 26 regular .commission
meeting.
The county will be receiving over
$1 million in federal stimulus money
through a home weatherization pro-
gram.
According to Dorothy Inman-
Johnsondirectorof theCapitalArea
Community Action Agency, Inc., Gulf
County will receive $1.3 million in
single family home weatperization
money as part of the federal govern-
ment's economic stimulation effort
A private, not-for-profit organiza-
tion, the Tallahassee-based agency
has worked with Gulf County many
times in thy past on weatherizing
houses in the county.
- Inman-Johnson told commis-
-sioners that ordinarily, under the
program, Gulf County splits about
$350,000 with three other counties
each year for the same weatheriga-
tion program.
The purpose of the increased
program, lrunan-Johnson said, was
to weatherize as many low income
houses in the county as possible,
simultaneously creating jobs locally
and boosting the local economy in as
many areas as possible..

TO ALL ADVERTISERS
in case of error or omissions in advertisements, the publishers
do not hold themselves liable for damage further than the amount
received for such advertisement.

The spoken word is given scant attention; the printed word is
thoughtfully weighed. The spoken word barely asserts; the printed word
thoroughly convinces. The spoken word is lost; the printed word remains.


The lengths to which county
commissioners seem intent on
avoiding the bullet they must bite
were never more evident than last
week.
The board held a special
meeting last Thursday to examine
alternate sources of income than
property taxes,
One aside, if the meeting was so
special, why were there only three
commissioners, barely a quorum,
as has been the case on at least
three occasions in the last five or
six weeks. *
Things like additional taxes or
economic developrilent special?
Maybe not so much.
The idea, though, was coming
from a good thought: to relieve
the property tax burden and
attempt to mitigate a system that
Commissioner Warren Yeagar said
was fundamentally unfair in that
100 percent of the population draws
benefit from the property taxes of a
percentage well south of 100.
What commissioners did, ,
however, is put themselves in
a stance of potentially moving
forward with by ordinance, not a
vote of the populace a franchise
fee tax, a sales tax allowable to
small counties and an additional
five cents of gas tat. They still came
way short of facing the shortfall due
to spending commissioners refuse
to address.
In part, commissioners were
left primarily with the three
options above because they have
dallied most of this calendar year
considering an assortment of taxes.
Several potential options
evaporated while commissioners
did their best head-inithe-sand
routine and avoided ever-pressing
budget issues.
Those delays in fact, and a
July 1 deadline on the gas tax for


one, cost taxpayers four times the
typical price tag for advertising,
since they needed to advertise
in the area daily newspaper in a
hurry rather than the local weekly
newspaper.
(Note: Both newspapers are
owned by the same company, so
though the "shop local" could be
applied the cost was borne entirely
by taxpayers).
More than that, the gas tax will
require an agreement with the
cities regarding how the money is
divided, and given the current level
of animosity between the county
and the city of Port St. Joe, even if
city commissioners considered the
tax appropriate, and they should
not, an agreement before July 1
seems a reach.
And a franchise tax will require
an agreement with utilities, which
also seems like a reach, given the
long negotiation between the city of
Port St. Joe ahd MediaCom.
Finally, when is it a bad thing
that the county is among a minority
to have not exercised its rights
under law to pass a small county
sales tax? How is this not a good
thing?
Not to mention that sales taxes
and gas taxes are among the
most regressive taxes available
to government, inordinately,
when considering percentage of
household income, soaking the
lower income brackets.
But combined, even if all the
hoops are jumped through and the
ordinances adopted and both
Mr. Yeagar and Commissioner Billy
Traylor were initially outspoken
against the gas tax, though they
later agreed to at least move the
process forward these taxes
seem like more pocket change.
The revenue stream they will
provide, combined, dries up well


short of even the commission's
budget committee's numbers.
They will certainly come well
short of providing substantive
property tax relief.
That will come only with
commissioners determined to
quickly reduce spending, to rein in
years of spendthrift ways."
Hanging their hat on the
underlying argument that the
cost of state mandates spiked
annually by double-digit percentage
points, over 20 and 30 percent
in some years, as did county
spending is a losing proposition r
commissioners as property owners
are painfillly aware.
As will publicly proclaiming
as Mr. Traylor did last w;eek a
willingness to risk defaulting on
bonds, bonds that compounded and
extended the county's long-term .
debt during good times, in another
example of avoiding difficult
choices that have to be made to
amend for profligate spending.
As the budget committee report
so painfully highlights, without a
commitment to significantly reduce
spending, those who have chosen to
' put down roots, who live here and
have a homestead exemption will
see their property taxes go up this
year even as their property values
, fall.
Commissioners will effectively
continue-down their own path on
the backs of the working folks,
those on fixed incomes, semors,
struggling homeowners and others
already wobbling under the weight
that path has piled on them.
That is the simple black and
white reality. Commissioners have
to acknowledge that reality as a
first step to altering t.i
Lacking that, all the talk about
trying to alleviate the burden dn
property owners is just that, talk.


not an abstract concept,
but a way of life.
Coming up with a few
dollars on some days can
be a challenge; coming up
with $7,000 they don't
exactly have that kind of
change in the bank.
And yet this lien.

ws editor one of the most

given the surroundings of

And there has been
much hand-wringing
over these dues in local
government, as the ciy
and county have both
taken up the issue, or at
least discussed it, and in
the case of one county
commissioner receivmg
approval to approach
the parties involved,
but arrived so far at no
solutions.
The verdict from the
association is that the
dites are the dues, they
are owed, there is no
recourse but alien if they
are not paid.
This is all nonsense,
and one wonders what the
students of today would
make of such a situation

weighed in that the dues
are owed, but Page 17 of

The passing of another
school year afid the
understanding that many
of those seniors walking
the stage and heading
,into this world turned
upside down makes me
think about the signals we
provide about what this
world is all about.
Some of them,
unfortunately, are pretty

building,
The two
organizations
moved into a new TIM
facility for which Star ne
the city of Port St.
Joe provided the
land several years ago.
The builditig is nice,
serviceable, clean and
one of the more attractive
structures along .
Industrial Road in Port
St. Joe.
But the building is
also threatened by a
lien of thousands of
dollars because of dues
that are owed on the
acreage the ARC and
Gulf Trahsportation was
donated.
Nobody bothered
to inform the two
organizations there were
associations dues tied
to the property, which is
part of a commerce park
developed by The St. Joe
Company.
So over the course of a
few years, the bill steadily
increased until now it
represents something
a2 coo -p hibitive
for the organizations..
Let us understand
what these organizations
do.
In the case of ARC, it
provides work and other
skills to some of the most
vulnerable citizens of this
county. It operates on a
shoestring, as any similar
nonprofit would.
As economic times
toughen, AltC is among
those organizations who
feel the pain early and
deeply. .
Same with Gulf
Transportation, which
provides transportation
to the disadvantaged,
providing access to
medical care and meals
that might otherwise be
unavailable to its senior
and low-income clients.
These are folks who

far wall. It reminded me
of a road runner cartoon
the way he slowly slid
down the far bank.
John, who gras the
best athlete among us,
almost got his hand
to the far bank, but he
missed, and he too, did
the Wiley Coyote thing
to the bottom of the
ravine. He and Squeaky
were helping Buddy up
when Leon turned to me,
"Whose next?"
I was barely 18 years
old. I couldn't speak to
peer pressure or the
silliness of life or to the
insanity of rituals (made
up or real) or to the *
eternal quest of young
men to prove themselves.
I did know with unfailing
certainty that if John
Ingram couldn't make it
across that ditch, then I
didn't have a chance! And
yet, I still walked back 20
feet to get my running
start. Was I catching a
preemptive glimpse of life
after high school?
My whole past didn't
flash before my eyes as
I quickened my pace
toward the edge. Mostly
I thought I might not be
ready for graduation if
I was dumb enough to
take off on a bad trip,
which I knew in advance
was shrouded in failure
from the start. This was
more basic than math,
science or language arts.
Maybe I needed another
year of schooling. Where
was that course on using
your head? Sensible


activity? Being smarter
than the average bear?
And then I remembered
something Mother said
when I was lobbying to
go to the dance up at the
Skyway GrilL I pointed
out most clearly that all
of my friends were being
allowed to go. "Son, if
all your friends were
jumping off of a cliff..."
I didn't even make it to
the little stream. I crash
landed on the near bank.
Iri retrospect, I think I
jumped too far up!
Linda Quesenberry
kept Buddy upright as
- we marched into the
auditorium. He was
limping pretty badly on
one leg and couldn't use
the other. Squeak's face
looked like he'd lost a
fight with a cornered
raccoon. John's right
arm was in a sling. I
hadn't felt anything in
my feet for two days.
My sacroiliac had been
displaced to somewhere
just north of my pituitary
gland. And my ears
wouldn't quit ringing.
Charlotte IVIelton had her
arms around my waist
and was poised to drag
me to our graduation.
Miss Polly was fit to be
tied. "You boys have beeil
up to the Skyway Grill.
What kind of fight was it?
You could have waited
two days for goodness
sakes!
Charlotte got me to
my seat. I wasn't sure
how I was going to make
it up those six steps and
across that stage. As
Mr. W. O. Warren started
into his commencement
address, I hoped and
prayed I was graduating
FROM some things..and
TOWARD some others.

Respectfully,
Kes


Leon said you couldn't
truly qualify to graduate
unless you had passed
the "initiation" test.
"They can give you the
paper, but it won't mean
a thing unless you can
prove you are ready" is
exactly how he put it! He
was the oldest brother
and n turally a lot more
worldly thdit the rest of
us. ,


"We just brought the
best of your class out
here," Nicky Joe chimed
in. "This initiation is not
open to everyone. 'j'his
is a sacred tradition that .
has been going op for
years!"
I looked around
at Larry "Squeaky"
Ridinger, Buddy
Wiggleton and John
Ingram. Great
classmates all and
wonderful friends! And I
mean no offense
here, but didn't
none of us look
like the cream
of the crop. And
at the moment,
I didn't give a
flying nickel about
sacred traditions.
EY McKenzie High
ERT School graduation
Down was only a couple
of days away. We
had already had
one practice session on
marching in, finding our
seats and standing by
rows to make out way
across the stage. Miss
Polly Rucker took her
role as class sponsor
seriously. It was late May
1965. .
It was an innocept-
time. Less complicated.
Simpler. We were young.
Eager. Full of ourselves.
And pretty darn gullible.
"I'll try it." Buddy was
not the smartest guy in
our group. '
He backed up, took a
running start and flew off
the negr bank. Folks, he
didn't make it half bray.
He crashed with a thud ;
into the two inches of
water that trickled down
the center of the gorge
some 20 feet below. I
thought he surely broke
both legs. And when he
didn'imove for a full
minute I feared it could
be worse.


And I was powerful
ready to get out of high
school, shake the
dust of our little
town and move
on to bigger and
better things.

This ditch was
cavernous! Leon and
Nicky were both talking
at once, "We all had to
do it. Jackie, Larry, Paul
David, Bobby C." They
rolled off names of their
classmates that I had
looked up to all my life.
But it must have been a
full 30 feet across that
chasm! .
"Leon, are you sure
Jackie jumped this
thing?" Jackie Burns was
the most level headed of
Leon's friends. I wished
he was here now. ,

hardly take a running

objected to this project. If the
inevitable hurricane hits and
this plant and its fuel source
is sent into the bay, we could
have an ecological disaster,
Also, the fact that there would
be hundreds of tons of wood
chips stored there at the plant,
if a fire broke out, it could
burn for days creating another
devastation for the city. .
The main reason given for
the open arms to the project
was the jobs this project
says that it will create. The
company states 25 jobs but will
consist of 5-6 corporate placed
people. This means that the
face of an entire town will be
forever changed for less that 20
local jobs and the tax revenues
this plant might bring.
The reason I love Port St.
Joe is that it is a wonderful
place to live, having awesome
people, beautiful surroundings
and clean air. Please don't
, allow it or its people to be
harmed over a few jobs There
are other ways to grow a
community than by putting
something in place and then
spending the rest of our lives
worrying about how to stop
it. A good test for the people
in Port St. Joe is to decide
whether you would like your
children or grandchildren to
. live at or near this project.
Please let's stop this before
it goes too far. Contact your
commissioner immediately and
let them know you do not want

Ku dos to th0
graduating seniorS
Dear Editor:
Thank you for the senior
insert and even more for the
message to those graduating
from Gulf County schools. I-
hope we all cut it out and send
it to our favorite senior. In my
case it would nican buying .
a few dozen copies, for in'
this senior class there is an
abundance of delightful young
students who have enriched my
life and made me proud to have
been just a shall part of their
many achievements.
In the past I have given
numerous commencement
speeches, some to students I


knew well, some to strangers.
As a young teacher and school
administrator, youngsters were
once the focus of my days, and
as the mother of five children,
the exuberance of youth, of life
and living was present 24 hours
a day for many years.
Never have I known a senior
class that included so many
true WINNERS. Whether in
academics, athletics, music,
art or school and community
leadership, the Poit St. Joe
class of 2009 has shown us all .
what it means to do your best>
to excel. They have made Port
St. Joe High a better place than
it was before they came there.
How many of us can say that.
Isn't that one of the greatest
measures of success? Can our
adult leaders say the same?
You know Port St. Joe High
has not always been an "A"
School. I believe in 2006 it was
a "C" School. Wasn't that the
year you all walked through
the doors of PSJ High the first
time? I sincerely believe you
all changed the momentum.
Working together it took you,
four years to help change that
"C" to an "A." Of course you
had some help from the other
students and teachers and the
administrators but bottom line,
you walked into a "C" School
and you leave it an "A",schooL
I wish for each of them, of
you my dear young friends,
a life of few trials and many
tribulations. Selfishly I hope
that you will one day return
to Port St. Joe and bring to
us the leadership and lessons
in working together that
you exhibited as students
in your high school years.
Wouldn't it be great if Kayla
Minger returned and became
Chairwoman of the County
Commission and Tayler Byrd,
Mayor of the City? Tyrong
Dawsoil could be the Director
of Parks and Recreation, and
Douglas May, our youngest
Congressman ...so I can't
mention every graduate, but I
could. Please don't forget that
there is a place for each of you
in Gulf County. We need all of
you to show us how you worked
so well together and supported
each other for the greater good.
How you accomplished so lituch
in just four short years and how
you grew into such fine young
citizens is something that we

Dear Editor:
After reading that a new
Biomass plant has been given
the city's blessing, I have
proceeded to do research to
find out more about both the
technology and the company.
First of all, the term "Green"
technology, as it has been
used in this instance, just
does not apply. The company
itself states that the toxic
output from this plant would
exceed one million pounds
per year. Their definition of
"carbon neutral" just means .
that because they reduce the
pollution at a coal-fired plant
elsewhere, that pollution .
here is OK. The Florida
Medical Association has
issued a statement declaring
"opposition" to this type of
project.
According to the company,
there will be (he equivalent
of 100 train cars per week I
delivering the fuel source to
Port St. Joe. Since they say
that all of the material is to
come from within a 75 mile
radius, it will possibly have to
be trucked in, as well. That
will be a tremendous amount
of truck and train activity for a
city the size of Port St. Joe. It
will once again create "heavy
industry" feel to the area.
Secondly, I can't find
anywhere that the company
who is proposing the project
has a single facility that is up
and running at this time. At
present, the company itself has
only seven full-time employees.
The principals involved were
also involved iri a similatplant
in Vermont that shut down. An
important thing to know aboxit
the proposed plant in Port St.
Joe is-that it was proposed for
Liberty County in 2()07 and
then for Tallahassee in 2008.
Both were voted dowli by the
commissioners at each location.
These representatives saw the
dangers in having this type of
facility in a populated area. I,
therefore, believe that since
Port St. Joe has such a great
ecosystem the Intracoastal
waterway and St. Joe Bay

close by, our responsibility .
is greater than the other
two communities who have


By Dennis Markatos-50riano
Federal Energy
Regulatory Commissioh
Director Jon Wellitighoff
recently stated that the
-U.S. might not need
any new coal or nuclear
power plants. Due to, our
tremendous renewable
energy potential, the
rising challenge of global
warming and the high
cost of new conventional
plants, I think he's right.
The U.S. can meet
future electricity demand
by deploying efficiency
and renewable energy.-
The potential for
renewable energy is
great. The U.S. has more
wind and solar potential
than all its oil, gas and


coal reserves. Our .
current total electrical
generating capacity of
1,000 GW is dwarfed
by the combination of
onshore and offshore wind
potential of ~3,000 GW
cited by Interior Secretary
Salazar. And solar polver's
potential is many times
greater than that if we
deploy panels on less than
1 percent of our land. Add
to that the potential of
geothermal, hydropower,
and biomass and fossil
fuels begin to look like
a dinosaur of the 20th .
century that will soon be
replaced.
The price of new
renewable energy is ,
decreasing dramatically
and might soon be lower


than new fossil fuel power
supply. For instance, solar
photovoltaic modules
have fAllen from $20 per
watt in the early 1980s to
below $3 per watt today.
Between 2004 and 2008,
white-hot demand growth
that outpaced solar supply

from falling. But now that
supply has caught up
with demand, 2009 prices
continue downward,

powered our rising .
standard of living since
the late 1800s. But now
that we recognize large
current and future
costs from greenhouse
gas pollution, we must
cap such pollution and
lower our emissions. We
successfully lowered
lead emissions from
gasoline in the 1980s
and sulfur dioxide from
coal smokestacks in
the 1990s. A similar
cap (with emissions
trading) to lower carbon
emissions is now being
considered in Congress.
Such a framework gives
renewable energy the
opportunity to grow in
electrical market share


from 10 percent today to
over 20 percent by 2020.
The renewable market
is poised to meet all new
electricity demand. Of .
renewebles'.10 percent
share of electricity,
hydro contributes, the
most, followed by wind, ,
biomass, geothermal,
and solar. Renewable
capacity represented
over half of new capacity
in 2008 (with wind power
growing a record 8.5 GW
and solar .36 GW). By .
2011, renewable capacity
growth can provide the
~15 GW per year our grid *
needs without adding
expensive new coal or
nuclear power plants. By
the mid-2010s, renewable
electricity can replace
retiring old coal power
plants, especially in the
wind-rich Midwest and the
solar-rich Southwest.
U.S. electricity demand
growth is slowing and
might soon stagnate even
as population continues to
climb. From 9 percent per
year in the 1950s, demand
growth has fallen each
decade to ~7 percent,
4.2 percent, 2.6 percent,
2.3 percent, and then ~1


percent so far in the 2000s.
Today's recession erased
the need for new electric
capacity recently as ,
electricity use fell almost
1 percent in 2008 and is
projected to fall much
further in 2009. Electricity
demand is not expected to
recover to 2007 levelauntil
2011.
This tough economic
period is an opportunity
to build a more secure
economy by spurring
our recovery through .
efficiency and renewable.
As long as the recent
stimulus bill is executed
well, we can hold demand
constant through living
more efficiently and
implementing smarter
grid design.
Deploying efficiency
and renewable can
support millions of green
jobs in our country and
strengthen our economy
as we free ourselves from
huge foreign oil bills.
Becoming the global
leader in low-carbon
energy and efficiency is
a path to prosperity in a
world focused on reducing
emissions in the decades
ahead.


We maintained
economic health in
the past by leading
innovations of the 20th
century. A domestic
market was always crucial
for success, such as
U.S. computer demand
driving Silicon Valley's
advances. Now, a domestic
market for efficiency
and renewable energy
will help us regain our
economic footing.
Jon Wellinghoff is
right. Our country has the
renewable resources to
take advantage of falling
costs for wind and solar
power. The time is ripe to
aggressively match this
deployment with efficient
usage, simultaneously
saving ratepayers
thousands and helping
preserve a stable global
climate.
Markatos-Soriano is
the director of Sustainable
a Energy Transition
(www.setenergy.org), a
nonprofit dedicated to
helping campuses and
communities throughout
the country move to a
climate-friendly energy
future based on efficiency
and renewable.

it can survive."
Kennedy called the proj-
ect "one of the most diffi-
cult projects" Preble-Rish
has ever undertaken.
"We got through it and
we're very proud and I
hope the community is
proud as well," he said.
Current PSJRA direc-
tor Matt Fleck stressed the
collaborative nature of the
project, and applauded the
striking results.
"This creates a back-
drop for other improve-
ments," said Fleck, noting
the PSJRA's facade grants,
which have refreshed
storefronts along both Wil-
liams andReid.Avenues.
Gulf County Chamber
of Commerce president
Ralph Roberson saw the
improvements as a boost
to businesses during tough
economic times.
"We're proud to see it
improve," he said. "Even in
these difficult times, we're
stE making progress."

BUSin95S IRCUh0f0f
In dedicating a new
business incubator, locat-
ed at 305 Peters Street, the
city hoped to extend a hand
to new business owners.
The incubator, formerly
George Washington. El-
ementary/High School


classrooms, will house two
businesses, with separate
entrances for both.
Business owners will
pay a nominal rent and
stay in the facility for a
short time. As their busi-
ness grows and expands,
they will leave the incuba-
tor, freeing up space for
new businesses to begin.
"Small businesses em-
ployee half our nation's
workers. It's extremely im-
portant to grow new busi-
nesses," said Port St. Joe
mayor Mel Magidson,
"This will be our contri-
butiors, in the way of space
to free up capital for other
things." -
The city, which contrib-
uted $30,000 to the project,
is working closely with
the National Association
of Business Incubators
(NABI). .
NABI will screen appli-
cations to determine which
potential tenants have the
greatest chance of surviving
long-term.
Aboardof directorscom-
prised of business people,
bankers and lawyers, will
serve as mentors to incuba-
tor tenants.
The goal, said Magidson,
is to identify. "appropriate

the area."
In 1965, Amy Rogers was
a student in Lula Wilson's
Brst grade classroom, locat-
ed in the first of the incuba-
tor'stwolargerooms.
Being back inside the
classroom brought back


many fond memories.
"My heart is extremely
joyful," said Rogers. "I've

in North Port St. Joe.'Ib see
this is a glorious moment."
With a nod to the build-
ing's history, Magidson
envisioned the incubator's


future success.
"A lot of kids went
through this building and
now there'll be a chance,
hopefully, for some of those
kids to start businesses
here."

encouraged the students
to get their check-ups and
presented each classroom
with the complementary
picture book, "It's Check
up Time, Elmo!"
Pate asked the students
to pass the word on to their
parents and grandparents,
who could win prizes such
as jewelry, fishing equip-
ment and a weekend at the
beach.
For a chance to win a
a prize, children and adults
need only receive a check-
up at any healthcare facil-
ity, local or otherwise, dur-
ing the month of July.
Upon receiving their
le check-ups, participants
must complete an entry
form, available at the fol-
lowing locations: A&A
Homecare, Compass Ther-
apy, Gulf County Health
Department, Wewahitchka
Medical Center and Buy-
Rite Pharmacy.
Essentially a limited
medical release form, the
entry enables doctor's of-
fices-to verify that partici-
pants did, indeed, receive
their check-ups-
Though first conceived
by Wewahitchka Medical
Center, the campaign is a
community-wide effort to
instill in residents the im-
portance of preventative
healthcare.
Pate has observed that
most residents only go to
the doctor when they are
sick.
Women avoid their
yearly pap smears and
mammograms, men put off
. their prostate exams and
parents don't take their
children in for their annual
Well Child check-ups
Pate rioted that while

take their animals to the
vet annually for check-ups
and vaccinations, only five
percent of the population

The shower, held May 20

"The focus this year was
really to get some information

In particular, Nance wanted
women to know that Healthy
Start is a free, non-income-
based program available to
all mothers through the Gulf
County Health Department.
"We wanted to let people
know what we're here for and
what we offer," she said.

In an effort to provide news of
interest to the area's veterans,
The Star has launched a new Web
feature, "Veterans News," at www.
starfl.com.
In creating the section, we hoped
to provide a permanent home for
veterans news on our Web site, with
stories such as veterans profiles
and Memorial Day happenings.
The section will also provide digi-
tal access to the Star/Times' award-
winning special section, "Reflec-
tions on The Wall."
The special section includes pro-
files of Gulf and Franklin County's
Vietnam casualties, features on the
making of the Vietnam Veterans

Joe Beach resident David E. Kelly,
Jr., who served as a Memorial Ac-

This month has been
filled with some great
guest speakers at our
weekly meetings. This
week we had Russ Scholz,
a local attorney with the
firm of Rish, Gibson'
School, and Groom, EA.,
who spoke to us about his
recent back surgery. Russ
was telling us about the
procedures that he had
done in January of this

long time, and comfort he
hasn't had in a while.
The surgery was per-
formed by Dr. ed
Bonati. Some of you may
remember that he and
his staff were here for a
short period of time and
occupied the Gulf Pines
Hospital facility. Russ
went on to explain the
particulars of how Dr.

He told us that the lo-

the patient has a short
recovery period and then
walks out of the clinic
that same day.
Russ told us that pa-
tients come to DE Bonati's
clinic from all around the
world. He went on to say
that most insurance com-
panies will cover the pro-
cedures; however, they
may or may riot pay for
the cost of the facility. Ev-
ery procedure and each
situation is different. If
you want more informa-

located in Hudson, Fla.,
or you can always con-

He was writing about
the mill whistle, and he
was right. The Whistle is
now part of the new City
Commons Park next to
City Hall., Sitting up high
on a bright 'industrial' yel-
low post, it is the reminder
of "what once was." The
dedication plaque is blank.
The Port St. Joe Redevel- -

it should "be left up to the
people who had their lives
changed forever" to help
fill in the blank.
In the interest of pre-'
serving this piece of histo-

personal anecdotes related
to the whistle. If you have

A good part of the con-
fusion over southern' pea
variety names is due to the
fact that gardeners can eas-
ily save their own southern
pea seeds. Over the years,
true varietal identity gets
lost. So, gardeners think
up new local names for
the Southern pea variet-
ies that grow. As }he seeds
are spread around, what
started out as a single vari-
ety may become known by
several names. Add to this
fact that there are so many
recognizable southern pea
varieties and it's easy to.see
how confusion can result.

of the truth, you do more than go
to church and listen to what the
clergyman says, nod your head .
and come back for more at the
next service.
If you have received the love
of the truth, you probably know
by now that thei*e is much in the
creeds and statements of faith
that is not consistent with the
teachings of Jesus.
If you have received the love
of the truth, you already know -
that the One in scripture who is
sending is greater in authority,
than the one who is sent. The
Father sent the Son. The Son
sent the Holy Spirit.
There is much incorrect
teaching taking place in .
religious circles because of
the failure to understand .
Philippians 2:5-11:
"Let this mind be in you
which was also in Christ Jesus,
who, being in the form of God,
did not consider it robbery to
be equal with God, but made
Himself of no reputation, taking
the form of a bondservant, and
coming in the likeness of men.
And being found in appearance


as a man, HE HUMBLED
HIMSELF, and became obedient
to the point of death, even the
death of the cross. Therefore
God also has highly exalted Ilim
and given Him the name which
is above every name, that at ,
the name of Jesus every knee
- should bow, of those in heaven,
and of those on earth, and of
those under the earth, and that
every tongue should confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory
of God the Father.''
Jesus was in the form of
God, in heaven, before coming
to earth. He temporarily gave
up that position and became
a bondservant, like us, so that
He could demonstrate how we
should live, in submission to the
Father, empowered and led, by
the Holy Spirit. Was Jesus God
on earth? By genealogy, He was,
but in authority, He wasn't. He
gave that up when He came
to earth. What is His situation
now? He is King of Kings and
Logi of Lords and sitting at the
right hand of the Father.
Because I love the truth, I
don't care what the cults and


the false teachers say. The
Father, Son and Holy Spirit are
all persons within the Godhead.
When Jesus came to earth, He
was "God manifest in the flesh."

At the Mexico Beach
Christian Worship Center, we
- believe that God wants you to be
born again from above, not base
your eternal future on a church
ceremony. At the MBCWC, we
don't plead for money or twist
your arm to join. Plan to check
us out this Sunday. Our services
begin with a time of greeting
and fellowship at 9:30 a.m. CT on
Sunday. Worship begins at 9:45

Trust the

Bible, Not

the World
Don't trust the wisdom
of the world, you'll lose
every time you do.
That's what the Word is
for, a guide for me and you
The world has such
a hold on us, that many
times we can't see,
The pitfalls and
mistakes, that happen to
you and me.
We don't take God at His
Word, and call on Him until
we get in a tight.
If we called on Him to
start with, more of our
problems would turn out
right.
But too many times we
have to pay, because we let
self get in the way.
So call on God if the
need should arise.
The only one who can
clear your cloudy skies.

Billy Johnson


Do you love the truth?

2008 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

City of Wewahitchka

We are pleased to announce that our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements.
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the
quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply
of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and pro-
tect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from two
wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatments required
are chlorine for disinfection purposes and aeration for removal of hydrogen sulfide.
In 2008 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and a search
of the data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near our wells. The assessment results are available on the
FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Don Minchew at (850)-639-
2605. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any
of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the fourth Monday of each month at 6:30 PM at City Hall.
City of Wewahitchka routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws,
rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of
January 1 to December 31, 2008. I)ata obtained before January 1, 2008, and presented in this report are from the most recent
testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've
provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are
set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. 1 CLGs allow for a margin of safety
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that
a water system must follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is
convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinkixig water disilifectant below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contami-
.
nantsParts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) one part by weight of analyze to 1 million parts by weight of the

water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/1) one part by weight of analyze to 1 billion parts by weight of the
water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCilL) measure of the radioactivity iIi water
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR).
The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of
trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their
Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children.
Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. City
of Wewahitchka is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in
plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure
by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in
your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can
take to minimize expostire is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
The sources of drinking.water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs,
and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in
some cases, radioactive material, and cati pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and qas 'production, mining, or farming. *
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a varlet of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff,
and residential uses,
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of indus-
trial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain con-
taminants in water providedby public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits
for contarilinants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contami-
nants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about
contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking
Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a
,safe and dependable water supply, we sometimes need to make improvements that will beilefit all of our customers. These
improvements are sometimes reflected as rate structure adjustments. Thank you for understanding.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compro-
mised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people
with HIVIAIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These
people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to
lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking
Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
We at City of Wewahitchka would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment
process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or
concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

PANAMA GTY The un-
employment rate in the
Gulf Coast Workforce Re-
gion (Bay, Franklin, and
Gulf counties) was 8.3
percent in April 2009, 4.2
percentage points higher
than the region's year ago
rate and percentage point
lower than the state rate of
9.3 percent. Out of a labor
force of 99,816, there were
8,321 unemployed Gulf
Coast residents.
"Local manufacturers
are telling us that business
is starting to pick back up;
however we are cautiously
optimistic. We're seeing
more job opportunities but
not as many high skill high
wage jobs as we'd like to
see," said Kim Bodine, Ex-
ecutive Dirdetor of the Gulf
Coast Workforce Board.
"Our local economy seems
to be tracking in the right
direction but obviously
based on our unemploy-
ment numbers we haven't
fully recovered yet." -
The .April 2009 unem-
ployment rates in the coun-
ties that comprise the Gulf
Coast Workforce Region
were:
8.5 percent in Bay
County,
6.1 percent in Frank-
lin County
8.0 percent in Gulf
County (down from 8.5 last
month)
To assist in the recovery,
the Gulf Coast Workforce
Board will receive $1.7
million in federal stimulus
funding for local workforce
programs.
The funds will be used to
preserve and create jobs,
promote the nation's eco-
nomic recovery, and assist
those most impacted by the


recession.
"I believe the workforce
system will play a vital role
in the economic recovery
by assisting workers who
are facing unprecedented
challenges to upgrade
their skills and re-establish
themselves in viable career
paths," said Bodine. "We're
on a fast track to implement
federal stimulus initiatives
and will utilize the funds in
a transparent and account-
able way." .
The Workforce Center
will target services to meet
the changing needs of work-
ers and employers. Fed"
eral stimulus funding will
go to help unemployed and
underemployed workers
achieve higher earnings by
providing employment and
training services. In addi-
tion, funding will be avail-
able to employed workers
who want to get additional
training to advance up the
career ladder.
Some of the Federal
stimulus dollars will go to-
ward a local summer youth
employment program. The
program will provide train
ing and summer employ-
.ment for more than 260 low
income youth aged 14-24.
The program is expected to
providevaluableworkexpe-
rience for young adults and
pump money back into the
local economy since pro-
gram participants spend
much of their wages.
Individuals interested
in assistance should con-
tact Michelle Wise at the
Workforce Center, 850-872-
4340 ext. 145. For more in-
formation oz\ the summer
youth program contact
Shonda Mills at 872-4340
ext. 138. '


The Gulf Coast Work-
force Board will hold the
following meetings on

ecutive/Finance Commit-
tee meets at 11:30 a.m. CT;
General Board meets at 12

phone survey we recom-
mend that they receive a
windstorm inspection, we
will guarantee that they will
save at leakt'the cost of the
inspection in the first year
or we will refund the differ-
ence. Therefore, there is
no risk to the horbeowner.
And, the inspection report
is good for five years so
they can multiply the say-
gs 5 times."
If PWI conducts a wind-
storm inspection, in addi-
tion to the discount report,
we will provide the hom-
eowner with recommen-
dations on how they can
make their home safer in
the event of a hurricane.
"With hurricane season
starting June 1, we encour-
age homeowners to quickly
take advantage of our free
analysis so we can deter-
mine whether or not th rec-
ommend a windstorm in-
spection" the owner of the
State Certified Windstorm
Inspection Company said.
"We encourage all ho-
meowners to have a wind~
storm mitigation inspection
conducted on their dwell-
ing to 'soften the financial
blow' on rising property
insurance premiums, and
at the same time provide
information on liow their
homes will perform in the
high winds and driving
rain generated by a 'major
storm'. It's a great way for
homeowners to have peace
of mind knowing they have
taken step s to protect their
home, their family, and in
most cases, receive re-
duced property insurance",
continued Mr. Walton.
To receive a "FREE"
windstorm analysis, hom-
eowners need to call (877)
536-0630 toll free.


TALLAHASSEE-Homeown-
ers across North Florida
are facing storms brewing
on twq fronts: Hurricane
Season officially starts on
June 1, and Homeowner In-
surance rates are going up.
Hurricane forecasters
at the National Weather
Service and Colorado State
University (CSU) predict
2009 will have between 11
and 12 named storms; six
will become hurricanes
and two will become major
storms (meaning category
3 and above.) CSU predicts
the Gulf Coast has a 31 per-
cent probability for at least
one major hurricane (cate-
gory 3-4-5) to make landfall
during the 2009 hurricane
season,
The Florida Legislature
just approved rate increas-
es on most homeowners'
insurance. One of the bus
passed would allow Citi-
zens to raise rates 10 per-
cent to 20 percent a year for
the next 5 years.
"There is only one thing
homeowners can do to pos-
sibly reduce their premi-,
ums and learn what steps
they can take to 'harden'
their homes against the
damaging effects of hurri-
canes. That's get a wind-
storm inspection," said Ken
Walton, president of Pan-
handle Windstorm Inspec-
tions. .
"However," Walton said,
"homeowners are skeptical
as to whether they will save
money with a windstorm
inspection. That's why
we have developed a free
phone analysis.that we pro-
vide to homeowners to give
them an idea as to whether
it will be worth their while
to have an inspection. .
