Health Fair draws big crowd

Star Staff Writer
As she walked along the
circular corridor of Wewahi-
tchka Medical Center, Eunice
Perry felt fine.
Her -blood pressure was
normal, she had a reasonable
body mass index and no cause
for concern.
"Right now I'm perfectly
healthy," she said.,
Earlier in the week, Perry
saw a sign announcing the


Aug. 11 health fair, which
offered a host of free health
,screenings, including diabe-
tes, cholesterol, hearing and
balance.
She took advantage of the
opportunity, bringing with her
seven grandchildren, a daugh-
ter and two daughters-in-law.
"I think it's wonderful, es-
pecially for people who are
low income and can't afford to
get testing done," she said as
she awaited her bone density
scan.


Likeminded people filled
the hallways, hovering near
Wewahitchka Medical Cen-
ter's examination rooms,
which were set up for individ-
uial screenings.
Health professionals from
Bay Radiology Associates, the
Eye Center of North Florida,
Gulf Coast Dermatology and
other agencies conducted the
screenings, which drew ap-
proximately 250 people to the

tion raised
several red flags.
The $200 million plant,
to be constructed on the
former Material Trans-
fer Industries site on the
Intracoastal Waterway in
Port St. Joe, would convert
biomass, such as forestry
residue, agricultural crops
and fast growing grasses
into electricity.
The Norcross, Ga.-based
company Biomass Gas &
Electric (BG&E), which
has proposed the project,
previously made an unsuc-
cessful attempt at locating
a biomass plant in a Talla-
hassee industrial park.
Some of the more vo-
cal opponents at Wednes-
day night's meeting in the
county commission meet-
ing room also opposed the
Tallahassee plant.
Dr. Ronald Saff, a Talla-
hassee allergy and asthma
specialist. cited 4 litany of
medical problems resulting
from air pollution, including
heart failure, asthma and
cardiovascular diseases.
"Do you want to risk
jeopardizing the health of
your community for a few
dozen jobs?" he asked.
Erwin Jackson, a Tal-
lahassee resident who also
owns property in Mexi-
co Beach, said he spent
'$48,000 in legal' fees fight-
ing the pIoposed BG&E
plant in Tallahassee. t
Jackson attacked BG&E
CEO and president Glenn
Farris personally, accusing
him of forgery among other
things. '
Lqe Flowers, of Tal-
lahassee, continued the
personal attacks, accusing
Farris of "blatant dishon-
esty" in his remarks on the
biomass plant's environ-
mental impact.
To make her case, Flow-
ers screened a documen-
tary in which neighbors
of the McNeil Generating
Station in Burlington, VT,
another project using an
"advanced gasification"
process, decried the plant's
pollution and harmful im-
pact on public health.

the film complained of

flying wood chips. The
chips, neighbors said, in-
filtrated homes and hang-
ing laundry and resulted
in ear infections and other
ailments.
Farris, who sat impas-
sively at the front podium
during the criticism, ear-
lier outlined multiple ben-
efits of the biomass plant,
including job growth, an
expanded tax base and
the ability to draw other
"green" industries into the
area.
Calling biomass "an
already significant, well es-
tablished" energy source,
Farris noted that 7 percent
of all energy consumed
nationally comes from bio-
mass, which puts it on par
with nuclear energy.
Farris offered a portrait
of biomass technology at
odds with that of the Tal-
lahassee delegation.
He said the biomass
plant will meet Depart-
ment of Environmental
Protection standards for
air quality, and will con-
tribute less to air pollution


than "two SUVS or three
cars driving 14,000 miles a
year."
The plant, said Farris,
would be "carbon neutral,"
and not release carbon di-
oxide into the atmosphere
or contribute. to climate
change.
The plant's byproducts,
ash and water, would pose
no environmental threats,
said Farris.
Calling ash a "benign
substance," Farris said the
material can be recycled
as landfill cover or road
bed material.
Water would be chan-
neled back to the waste-
water treatment plant, and
not released into water
bodies or groundwater,
Farris added.

Generating Station plant

mass plant.
Gulf County Economic
Development Council ex-
ecutive director Edward
Nelson vowed that the
EDC would "not support
anything that will come
into the community that
will be detrimental.".


He cited a potential eco-
nomic impact of $15 mil-
lion annually among the
biomass plant's merits.
In a short statement
of support, Gulf County
Health Department ad-
ministrator Doug Kent af-
firmed that the biomass
plant would have "no sig-
nificant health effects.".
Several other area resi-
dents spoke passionately
of the need for jobs in a
struggling economy.'
Wewahitchka resident
Marlene McNair said the
county should take a risk
on the biomass plant, giv-
en the large percentage of
younger residents forced
to leave the area to find
work.
Johanna White, a Port
St. Joe banker and Port
Authority board member,


noted the closures of the
paper mill and Arizona
Chemical plant.
"We need jobs and I
feel like our leaders will do
what's best for our county
and city," she said.
Kenny Strange, a lo-
cal electrical contractor
and former St. Joe Paper
Company mill employee,
summed up the local sen-
timent by saying, "If it's
clean, it looks good, let's
bring it Qn."
Not all public opinion fit
the general trend of local
support and . out-of-town
opposition.
Two men from Tallahas-
see, one a retired forester
and another self-described
"environmentalist and
solar energy consultant"
championed the plant,
while local resident Mari-


lyn Blackwell accused
county leaders of "rail-
roading" the project.
"When you get the
whole power structure in
this county pushing for
something...that's kind of
suspicious right there."
The meeting was the
first of two public meet-
.ings jointly hosted by the
Gulf County Commission
and Port St. Joe City Com-
mission.
After the public com-
ment period, a few officials
shared their thoughts,
with Mayor Mel Magidson
taking strong exception to
Blackwell's accusations.
"If this issue was be-
ing railroaded, we would
not be here tonight. I don't
think that's fair to say it's
being railroaded," he said.
Magidson said his fel-
low elected officials would
weigh the pros and cons
carefully before making
any final decisions.
"If it's going to be harm-
ful to this community, we're
going to stop it," he said.
Warren Yeager and Bil-
ly Traylor both came out
in support of the biomass
plant.
While Yeager stressed
the need for job .creation,
Traylor criticized the pre-
sentations of those from
Tallahassee who opposed
the plant.
"You brought nothing
to me tonight to say we
shouldn't support this,"
said Traylor.
"We have some good
people here who did their
homework. We didn't fly in
here overnight."

Property owners in renourishment area to see higher tax rates


By Marie Logan
Contributing Writer
Property owners along St.
Joseph Peninsula will see their
MSTU rates increase for the
2009-10 fiscal year.
At the Aug. 11 regular county
commission meeting, commis-
sioners voted 4-1 (Nathan Peters
voting no) to increase the Munici-
pal Services Taxing Unit (MSTU)
millage rate just enough to cover
the bond debt for the St. Joseph
Peninsula beach renourishment
project.
The increase applies only to
the property owners on the gulf
side and gulf interior of the pen-
insula.
According to Paula Pickett,
director of the Gulf County Tour-
ism Development Council (TDC),


which spearheaded the renour-
ishment project, gulf front proper-
ty values dropped 17 percent, and
gulf interior values dropped just
more than 24 percent last year.
"We're not asking for more
money, just enough to cover the
renourishment bond debt," Pick-
ett said. "We thought we could
keep the MSTU at six mills maxi-
mum when we started the project
in 2005, but property values have
dropped below what's required to
pay the bond, so we have to raise
the MSTU millage rate to cover
it."
By state statute, 10 mills is the
maximum rate that can be ap-
plied, Pickett said.
A mill equals $1 for every
$1,000 of property value.
In other business conducted
at the meeting:


* Judge Fred Witten politely
but firmly gave the commission-
ers a message: Finish the repairs
to both courthouses, immediately.
Witten told the board that he
was scheduling next year's cal-
endar and had to have the court
rooms available, especially in
Port St. Joe.
'Commissioner Billy Traylor
assured the judge that renova-
tions to the Port St. Joe court-
house would be completely fin-
ished in two or three months, and
the new roof on the old Wewahi-
tchka courthouse would be fin-
ished within the week.
* Pickett announced that the
current 2009 Gulf County visitor's
guide had qualified as a finalist
in the Flagler Awards, the state
tourism industry competition.
* Allen Cox, chair of the Port


St. Joe Port Authority, and Tom-
my Pitts, executive director of
the Port Authority, gave an up-
date to the board of Port Author-
ity activities.
They reported that the Port
Authority is competing for a $30
million no-match federal stimu-
lus grant and believe they stand
a good chance of getting it. That
will enable the Port Authority to
expand the port into the deep
water area on the gulf side of the
George Tapper Bridge.
* County Administrator Don
Butler told the board that county
consolidation plans were pro-
gressing. The board unanimously
passed a. motion to allow Butler
to ask for requests for propos-
als (RFPs) for work connected
with the new consolidated Pub-
lic Works and Road Department


site on State 71 at Doc Whitfield
Road.
Butler also announced that
Commissioner Warren Yeager
had just received notification
that the state was waiving the
county's $2 million portion of the
Stump Hole project.
Yeager said the $15 million
project to repair and reinforce
the Stump Hole at Cape San
Bias was now on hold because
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Com-
mission had problems with the
project. He said the county was
asking Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-North Florida) "to help clear
it up."
The project received Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) funding to repair beach
erosion from Hurricane Gustav
that damaged the area last year.

A4 OThe Star inion


Thursday, August 20, 2009


Summer vacation for
youngsters officially ends
on Monday with the first
day of school.
Here is hoping that the
next 180 or so days are
productive and meaningful
for all involved.
Here is a hope that
the state's coffers come
a little more in line, or at
least that state lawmakers
stop thinking that
education is a
swell place to cut
and try to balance
the budget.
As Gulf District
Schools have
seen over the past
year, the vagaries
of Tallahassee TIM
and its esteemed Star Ne'
lawmakers can
be the difference
between a job and the
unemployment line.
. And there is also
hope that the school
district will continue to
show responsibility and
accountability for its own
spending, ensuring that
dollars received become
dollars applied to the
classroom and to the
learning environment
at each of the county's
schools.'
Here is also a wish that
the H1N1 virus proves, like
many an Atlantic storm, to
be much bluster with little
impact on the school year.
The news on a vaccine
for the swine flu, which
seemed on schedule for a"
mid-October availability,
may now not be ready
and available in the
United States until after
Thanksgiving.
There may be no more
. important school year for
the emphasis on personal
hygiene to be applied as
fundamentally as reading,
writing and arithmetic.
Learning at a young
age that washing hands
thoroughly with soap,
Covering coughs and
sneezes and not sharing
cups and utensils can
provide a lifetime lesson
just as useful and
necessary as that taught
in any book.
That the district has a
school health team that
is top flight, a team that
has been preparing for
the opening of school
for weeks, is cause for
comfort.
But nothing can
replace vigilance and
instilling in each young
child an understanding of
cleanliness and the values
and joys of simple hand-
washing.
Here is also a hope
that the coming school
year brings with it plenty
of triumph and joy on
the sports fields and
hardwoods.
Some of the familiar


names of the last four
years have moved on
to the next level, but in
their place come a host of
talented and enthusiastic
young student/athletes.
And the scholastic
sports year will be capped
next spring by the final
track and field season of
Kayla Parker of Port St.
Joe High School, arguably
as fine a woman
track athlete
as this county
has produced,
certainly in the last
20 years. ,
While making
_ wishes for the
coming year, let's
CROFT also include one
ws Editor for the youngsters
'who excel off the
fields that bring
so much of the spotlight,
those in National Honor
Society, NJROTC, Odyssey
of the Mind, Student
Government Association,
Key Club, those clubs
and organizations that
positively shape young
citizens and minds.
Let us hope that
the coming prom and
graduation season that
serve as passages into
adulthood dojust that,
instead of the tragic end
of young lives to drinking,,
driving or drugs.
Here is also a desire to
see the list of those in the
community who volunteer
their time, energy and
often money to support
the local public schools
continue to grow.
The schools face a
difficult year in terms of
finances and the years
to come will also be
challenging, though less
so for the passage of
the additional one-mill.
referendum in March.
In recent memory,
no year seems to cry out
for assistance from the
community across the
board to support local
education.
Parents volunteering
to assist in certain
instruction, such as Traci
Gaddis teaching art in
Port St. Joe, the Women
Athletes Assisting Women
Athletes (WASWA)
providing some funding for
girls' sports in the county,
the Shark 100 Club, the
Wewahitchka Quarterback
.Club and on and on.
These organizations
and community initiatives
such as involvement
in coaching Odyssey of-
the Mind or or assisting
with Project Graduation
may never play a more
important role in the
public schools as they can
this year.
Here is a hope that the
school district continues
to perform as students

way too much over the years -
they lunged back like pit bulls.
During last week's meeting
Commissioners Billy Traylor and
Carmen McLemore launched
another of their broadsides against
printed opinion that runs counter
to their own.
Forget about facts, as Mr.
Traylor proved again and again
by citing a number from thin air,
what the harangue demonstrates
that when it comes to fundamental
rights of every American, well they
may not apply in Gulf County.
The issue was again
consolidation, but it took a
backseat to a select few elected
officials who have taken public
office as a mandate to bully
and suppress to the point of
threatening any public voice of
opposition.
The issue in front of
.commissioners rarely matters, be
it a courthouse roof or elevator,
courthouse space, a neighborhood
animal control problem or financial
accountability.
Facts are also of little
consequence, what is important is
that the volume is turned way up.
And when commissioners are
dragged kicking and screaming
toward reality, expect the volume
to increase.
It is a familiar scenario for
anybody who has followed this
commission for any period of time.
Faced with a non-constituent
- meaning anybody outside the
narrow 20 percent minority of
county voters commissioners must
"serve" for re-election - with
a differing opinion, the fallback
position is one suited for a bully in
a sandbox. '
While it might be a good


thing for a new energy plant or
a newly-reconfigured Economic
Development Council and its
executive director to be subject
to intense, sometimes abrasive
scrutiny, commissioners want
nothing to do with a mirror held up
to their actions by anybody from
the public, their employers.
/ Call it governing by the rules
of mixed martial arts where
everything is a grudge match.
And the Three Kings of Mr.
Traylor, Mr. McLemore and
commission chairman Nathan
Peters, Jr., long ago demonstrated
that there is no such thing
as a grudge with a statute of
limitations.
Whether they come across
as three-year-olds battling over .
glue in art class or pushing the
envelope of professionalism and
slander as Mr. McLemore did last
week with what amounted to a
threat against printed dissent, is
beside the point; control of county
government is the issue.
And any threat to that control
is one that must be met with
savagery, whether commissioners
spout fertilizer while doing so or
not.
This is troubling because it runs
counter to the country founded
more than two centuries ago, the
country with laws these gentlemen
have sworn to uphold and protect.
Fundamental of these is the
right of free speech, freedom of
the press, freedom of expression
by the public. Thomas Jefferson
believed deeply in a citizen's
responsibility, duty, to question
government, to scrutinize
government.
To have elected officials who
are not only openly hostile, but
outright dismissive of any voices
but their own and favored friends'
and supporters' - call it their re-
election entourage - is an. insult
to those who are fighting and dying
half a world away.


Where are the voices of
Commissioners Bill Williams
and Warren Yeager when their
colleagues kick into attack gear?
Where is a moderating voice of
ethical standards, say from the
county attorney?
That is why the county
desperately needs county-wide
voting.
The Three Kings control the
county, completely.
Maybe Districts 3 and 5 provide
the majority of property taxes,
but representation of those two
districts, and the taxpayers that
live in them, is neutralized by this
incestuous infection known as .
single-member districts.
Voters in District 3 and 5 see
their votes wasted every four years
because the Three Kings are in
control, regardless of who sits at
the podium with them.
County-wide districts are
not a panacea for the farce of
county government, but could it
really be worse than the current
system that rewards short-sighted
personal agendas and lack of fiscal
efficiency, juvenile behavior in
public and governing styles more
suitable to a boxing ring?
The ironic part is that when
given the option in 2004, absent
a bloated price tag, voters
overwhelmingly - in every district
and all but one precinct - shouted
for an end to single-member
districts.
No matter the volume, the
bombast of bull hockey emitted
by commissioners, the level of
bullying, such facts can't be altered
or drowned out, no matter how
hard Mr. Traylor, Mr. McLemore
and Mr. Peters might try.
And one of those facts is that
folks should take back the county
government hijacked by elected
officials who have forgotten to read
the oath, or learn the governing
principles behind it, that they
recited upon taking office.

decided early in life God
separated us into cookers
and eaters. It didn't take
an Einstein to figure out
which category I fell into.
There is not a greedy
bone in my body. I have
been perfectly content to
let others take the bow
for their stuffed chicken
Provencale, stump
whipped (or sometimes
creek slung) chitlins
Fricassee, sauteed onion
dip and rhubarb upside
down gingerbread cake.
Somebody had to be
the eater. There were
a lot of early clues that
"chef-i-ry" was not my
calling. Troop 78 of the
McKenzie Cub Scouts
would hold their bi-
monthly cook outs at
Carroll Lake. I'd stick
my hot dog on the end of
a straightened out coat
hanger and promptly
drop it in the fire before
the juice had even sizzled
off that thing. I cut my
thumb near 'bout to
the bone opening a can
of Red Bird imitation


Vienna sausage. I burned
my tongue licking spilled
egg yoke off a wood stove..
I set the kitchen on fire
trying to roast a blue jay
that had the misfortune
of flying into an electric
fence.
There had to be
easier ways to fill your
b.elly. My favorite dish in
elementary school was
Sno Balls from
Pat Houston's
Grocery. They
came two to a
pack. They were
pure sugar with
a sprinkling of
coconut on top.
But they didn't
LEY need cooking,
BERT there was minimal
r dwn clean-up and they
wn tasted better than
Brussels-sprouts.
For dessert I'd eat a
Hostess Twinkie.
When you can't cook
you learn to adapt.
I lived one whole
summer on bubble gum
out of packs of baseball
cards. I was hoping for
Mickey Mantle or Ted

Roy Sievers and J. W.
Porter. I'd spend all the
money I made working
at the swimming pool
on PayDays, Zag Nuts
and Hershey Bars.
Leon bought me a

I've had the Thanksgiving
dressing that was so
dry it reminded me of
parched peanuts.
But you will never hear
me complain. I did. Once.
I had just won a baseball
game with a late inning
homerun. Everybody
was congratulating me
and patting me on the
back. I figured I was
pretty special. I hit the
back door out at the
end of Stonewall Street
still feeling my oats. I
whipped by the kitchen
table just long enough to
get a sneak preview of
the evening's main fare.
Cauliflower. You've got to
be kidding me. Babe Ruth
didn't eat cauliflower.
Stan Musial didn't eat
cauliflower. "I ain't
going to eat that stuff" I
asserted as I headed to
the bedroom.
Daddy's chair scraped
back from the table. It
was such an angry scrape
it stopped me in my
tracks. You don't reckon
I had been a mite too
brash? Surely the hero of
the day had a right.
He caught me before
I could get down the hall.
The hero of the day didn't
have any rights. He didn't
give me a lecture. He
didn't go into how mom
had slaved over a hot
stove. He didn't mention
whose table I was putting
my feet under. He didn't
pass go and neither of
us collected 200 dollars.
He jerked that big wide

When he finally tired
he eased me with one
hand (did I mention I
was a sophomore in high
school and weighed 160
pounds) off the ground
right up till our faces
were two inches apart.
The fire (and a little huqt)
still leaped from his eyes.
"Son, you dOn't have to
eat it. But you're not
going to throw off on it."
It was. a culinary
attitude adjustment that I
never forgot.
I've spent the rest of
my life being appreciative
of the effort to prepare
and the food placed
before me. I have
enjoyed, and treasured,
so many great meals with
so many great people
over the years. There
is something special,
almost magical, about
lingering over a good
meal with real friends.
Of course, none of that
helps at the moment. I've
got to "fix" this starter so
we can have sourdough
bread when Cathy
returns. I was in trouble
way before I got down to
that part about putting
in three teaspoons of
instant potato flakes.
IJcouldn't find half of
a cup for the sugar, I
didn't know how to gauge
"warm" water and I
didn't have a clue how
much was in a "capital
T".
The wooden spoon was
too big for the bowl and
the unleavened gook kept
sticking to it. I finished
stirring with a Craftsman
No. 3 screwdriver. It was
easier and the handle
really fit my hand...

Representing Who?
Dear Editor:
When officials are elected,
it's with a certain trust that
they are the ones according
to majority vote to best
represent the people. When
they get who they want re-
elected we should get what
we want represented. If that
is a problem maybe we voted
wrong.
Since the election
which plated our county
commissioners in office, no
other votes have counted.
The people voted against the
re-routing of U.S. 98, yet went
unheard as commissioners
allowed it anyway. We voted
for county-wide voting, yet
again we went unheard as
commissioners argued that it
would be far too costly. Costly
to whom?
The job onAmericus
Avenue was awarded to a
contractor which had neither
the equipment or manpower
to do the job properly. Like
the cavalry, much of the
workforce from Public Works
and the Road Department
were ordered to man county
equipment and stay until
the job was completed. The
county (us) along with a state
grant, paid the $1 million-plus
contract, bought materials,
furnished equipment and
manpower, even utilized
free labor from inmates. I'm
sure the cost to the county
was phenomenal for such a
simple job.
I would imagine the
properties the county
employees presently report
to are worth much more on
the market than the 10 acre
parcel of swamp land we now
own on Howard Creek Road.
A virtual wetland which
according to some could be
determined as unsuitable
for any civilized habitation.
I have to wonder what deals
were made in the acquiring
of this swamp land.
Commissioner McLemore
was quoted as having said,
concerning the letters in the
paper, "They will need lots of
ink and paper. They have not
seen nothing yet!"
Exactly who is "they?"
The taxpayers? The voters
of this county? Is that a
threat? For the implications
of such a statement could
be interpreted as devious,
even diabolical. (I picture a
scientist gone mad with his
sinister intents as he enacts
his plan to rule the world.)
I'm fearfully interested to see
what else is planned.
This county has certainly
enriched the lives of its
county commissioners.
Living large on the
fat. No other jobs,just
commissioning while we all
struggle daily in these lean .
times. Many families forced
to work multiple jobs, just to
make ends meet.
I guess being elected is
equal to having a perpetual
signed blank check Just fill
in the amount. Don't give
a thought to the taxpayers
who elected you. We will pay


the bill all our lives, and our
children can assume the
balance tomorrow.
The county seat, as well
as the bulk of the county
tax revenues, comes from
the south end of the county.
Each department is where
it should be for safety sake.
The coast is where most
if not all of the sea water
storm surge damage occurs
during hurricanes. You will
need some powerful good
binoculars to see the coast
from Howard Creek Road
and a crystal ball for Cape
San Bias. If I lived on Cape
San Blas I would be raising
Cain.
Now all the millions it will
cost to relocate everyone.
I 'am tired of the county
commissioners spending.
millions in secret like it is
their personal money and
acting like it is none of our
business. In the end it will
be a deficit for all county
citizens. If consolidation is
a must, it would be much
more cost-effective to move
the Road Department
south. A building is already
provided, and the move
could be done at a small
fraction of relocating all four
departments. Consolidation
would thereby be achieved
with all four departments
being within eye-sight of each
other.
Let me just say - unless
you are for leaving millions of
debt to the future generations
of our local society, we should
all rise to the challenge of
Commissioner McLemore
and certainly use more
ink and paper. We should
relentlessly demand
accountability of all our
county commissioners
we elected. Holding them
culpable for careless
spending and total disregard
for public opinion. This
requires someone who can,
to do something. Can the
people have a voice? Maybe
even a vote?
Since true public opinion
was not sought, yet the vote
for consolidation was 5-0, we
would all like to know who
the commissioners on the
south end were representing.
Certainly not their
constituency. I motion for the
citizens of the county to form
a coalition and demand a vote
on this urgent matter before
commencing any further
with this utter madness. Can
anyone second the motion?
If you agree, I urge you to
begin now calling your county
commissioners, and be
heard, if they will answer.
Billy Williams - answer
your phone.

McLemore, 639-3373 (h),

. Best business in Port St. Joe
Dear Editor,
I would like to tell you about one
of the best businesses in Port St
Joe. The business is 5 Star Collision
Center which is owned by Matthew
Scoggins.
A few years ago I met Matt under
not so great circumstances. As his
business name will tell you, I had a
collision of sorts. A deer hit me. Yes,
the deer hit me. He would still be
alive today had he not leaped out into
the road. That is not the point of this
story. Needless to say, my car was
repaired and repainted by 5 Star Col-
lision Center and life went on.
Life would take my husband and
me to Virginia Beach, Virginia. He is
in the Navy. Over the years, problems
arose with the paint on the car. We
just assumed we would have to have
the car repainted on our own "some
day." During a recent visit back home
(to Port St. Joe), my husband took
our car to be evaluated by Matt at 5
Star. He immediately said he would
stand behind his work and repaint \
,the defective areas at no charge to
us. This sounded great since we re-
ally did not expect anything; after
all, some years have passed since he
originally did the work.
When I picked up my car, it looked
outstanding! Not only had Matt re-
painted the defective
areas, he touched up other areas on
the whole car that had little nicks or
scratches in the paint. He also de-
tailed the inside of my car from top to
bottom. It looked awesome! He went
above and beyond what he had to do
from the start. I am very pleased!
This is why I want to tell the read-
ers of my experience. I would highly
recommend 5 Star Collision Center.
Matt will do the best job, and even if
something unforeseen takes place,
he will stand behind his work There
are not many businesses that will do.
what he did. Feel confident in having
things done locally.
Very Grateful,
Crystal and MarkAyers

Offer Still Stands
Dear Editor:
I was in your fair city again re-
cently attending the public meeting
regarding the proposed biomass
plant. I would like to take this oppor-
tunity to make a couple of observa-
tions that might be of interest to your
readers
At that meeting as well as at other
venues other times those of us from
Tallahassee who have been trying to
share the bad experience we have
had with this company (BG@E) and
its principals (Glenn Farris, et al.)
have been derided as "outsiders"
and whose interference is not needed
nor welcome. I would like to suggest
that those folk trying to persuade you
to make this ill advised bet art also
"outsiders" and while it appears they
have some citizens of PSJ enthralled
I hope you will remember our mo-
tives are completely without self
interest (no money in it for us)
Another thing that I find unset-
tling is that verbiage has been
used that implies we have said or
thought or believe or somehow have
indicated that some if not all your
elected officials are not "smart";
that we think they might have fallen
off the "turnip truck" (the Mayor's
metaphor) I'm here to say and say
vehemently that that is not the case.
In my view your elected officials are
every bit as a s those in any
other community Suggesting that we


hold otherwise is, I believe, an effort
to get somebody mad at us.
Finally, an aspect of this situation
that came out the other night at the-
meeting and which I find chilling was
that some if not all the commission-
ers have been involved with Mr Far-
ris and the proposal for longer than
I had thought. Given that is the case
then I'm pretty sure they are aware
of what we know about the the record
of the man and his company and
given that then I expect our counsel
will go largely unheeded....except,
perhaps, by some private citizens.
My offer, and that of my fellow
"outsiders," to be of service to your
community still stands.

Health effects and costs of
biomass burning
Dear Editor:
The proposed biomass burning
electrical generating plant will
have far reaching health effects
on the people in Port St. Joe. The
proponents have not been truthful
in the clean and green marketing
campaign-about the true levels
of air pollution or the costs to your
individual health and to public health.
If this plant is built, along with
others proposed in the Southeast,
the increased emissions of C02 will
accelerate climate change. This will
not only affect individual health but
the costs in terms of public health
will be significant. In an era when
health care costs are out of control
we cannot afford to add to the
burden.'
Since the biomass plant
emits more C02, NOx, and small
particulates than a comparably
sized coal plant, the result will be
an increase in ground level ozone.
Ozone is a lung irritant that has
effects that can last for days. The
American Lung Association says
the effect is similar to smoking.
High levels of ozone trigger asthma
attacks, and new evidence shows
repeated ozone exposure may
actually cause asthma. People with
emphysema, other chronic lung
diseases, angina or congestive
heart failure will all be sicker-their
symptoms will be worse on more
days.
In Atlanta, a recent study of
asthma patients showed that a .
three-week period when ozone
levels were low resulted in a 42%
decrease in hospitalizations and a
55% decrease in ER admissions.
Across the country this is significant
with' asthma health care costs being
approximately $21 billion dollars a
year. The American Lung Association
estimates that approximately half of
all asthma attacks could be avoided
by "cleaning up the power plants."
(State of the Air Report 2009.)
Climate change will force us to
think about health care in entirely
new ways because the rising C02
levels have both direct and indirect
effects, unexpected effects, and the
effects multiply each other.
For instance, higher
temperatures, increased C02
and higher levels of NOx have a
multiplier effect that increases.the
effects of ozone.
Unexpected effects of climate
change and rising C02 are
numerous. For instance, allergies
are a significant health problem and
cost in the country. Increased C02
has been shown to both increase
* pollen production, lengthen the time


pollen is produced, and increase the
antigenicity of ragweed-don't see
any in your backyard, it has a wind
distribution of 400 miles. Likewise,
increased C02 causes increased
plant growth and increased
allergenic reaction to poison ivy
according to the WHO.
Climate change has also led to
more lightning activity across the
country according to the White
House Report on Climate Change.
The unexpected effects of more
lightning-increased NOx, increased
ozone, increased pollen production
with a resultant increase in asthma
and cardiovascular disease related
hospitalizations and ER visits.
Over the next decade the EPA
has also projected that the number
of heat wave days will increase
as a result of rising C02 levels,
actually quadruple in Chicago. The
danger of dehydration and serious
complications are increased for
the obese (at least 20 percent of the
population), diabetics, patients with
cardiovascular disease, as well as
children and the elderly. Each year
deaths from heat related causes
exceed the total deaths caused by
hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, and
lightning strikes. The Chicago heat
wave in 1995 lasted less than a week
but caused more than 700 deaths. A
13 day heat wave in California in 2005
resulted in 16,000 additional ER visits
and 1700 additional hospitalizations
at a cost that exceeded $132,000,000.
The health effects of rising
particulates are just as significant
as those caused by climate change
secondary to increasing C02 levels.
Studies in California have shown that
prolonged exposure to heavy truck
traffic increased risk of cancer 40-,
350 percent, and the fuel supply and
ash disposal for the proposed plant
will likely result in approximately
200 truck transits a day. Other
studies have shown that exposure to
particulates rivals being overweight
and obesity as a cause of premature
death. The EPA has also stated
that exposure to particulate matter
increases the risk.of preterm delivery
and SIDS, as well as exacerbating
and precipitating respiratory distress.
and cardiovascular events.. [http://
ww w.epa.gov/oar/particlepollution].
Finally any consideration of the
medical costs of climate change
must consider the imminent water
problems facing much of the country.'
Water is an absolute essential for
life. As the climate warms more and
more people in the United States will
face limited water supplies and lower
water quality. The proposed plant
in Port St. Joe will draw more than
half a million gallons a day from local
groundwater, and the discharge of
effluent to holding ponds may pollute
that ground water, but at this time no
environmental review has been done
to objectively measure the impact.
The proposed plant in Port St.
Joe will contribute to global warming
because the emissions, especially
C02, will accelerate climate change
and the emissions of particulate
and NOx will worsen local air quality.
While there is no data for Gulf
County, Bay County currently is
rated as an F for ozone. The medical
costs to the community and to -
individuals will be significant when
emissions from this plant cause.
furtherdeterioration of air quality
Florida is blessed with other sources
of truly clean power that would be a
better choice than a wood burning
electrical generation plant.

Veteran Sharks revved for playoff run


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
The dilemma facing the Port St.
Joe football program is evidenced
by a perusal of the roster.
The Tiger Sharks, who finished
10-3 last year en route to the state
Class 1A semifinals, figure to be a
force again this year, but the ranks
will quickly thin without an influx of
yet unseen athletes next season.
Port St. Joe brings 16 seniors to
the field in 2009, a veteran bunch
that is playoff savvy and was un-
beaten at home last season while
finishing second at 6-1 in District
1-1A.
"Having that many seniors is
good and bad," said second-year
Coach Vern. Barth. "You like it
from a leadership standpoint, but
those who are just coming out, who
might have a little rust, thqy can
get down on themselves, and that
can spread through the team.
"But the experience will help
with our schedule. The experience
they've got from last year, espe-
cially with the playoffs, will help
because they know we can win
anywhere if we show up."
While there is stability - the
big three offensive weapons of Cal-
vin Pryor, Willie Quinn and Dar-
rell Smith return, as do the bulk of
both lines - this is also a season of
change for the Tiger Sharks, who
open with a Fall Jamboree next
Friday at Chipley.
With former defensive coor-
dinator Chuck Gannon stepping
down after last season, Barth will
add the role of defensive coordina-


tor to those of offensive coordina-
tor and head coach.
"It doubles my workload,"
Barth said. "It will be a learning
curve calling the defense because
I have always called the offensive
plays. The biggest adjustment has
been the amount of time I do have
to go over and make sure things
are where I want them to be defen-
sively.
"I know we can- score and exe-
cute on offense, but it does no good
unless we stop people."
With a new, coordinator, the
Tiger Sharks will also abandon a
long-time staple, the 4-4 defense,
in favor of a 4-3.
"The linebacker responsibili-
ties are different, and the respon-
sibilities in the secondary as well;
because now we'll have four guys
back there instead of three, so they
will have to understand their zones
and assignments," . Barth said.
"But I felt like I had three pretty
good guys who can play inside. The
4-3 is what I learned at Mosley; it is
what I know."
LeGrande McLemore, a sopho-
more, will rotate along with fellow
sophomore Walt Bowers at middle
linebacker. Jonathan Williams
will be at nose guard and Thomas
Sims at defensive tackle. Williams
and Sims are seniors.
The defensive ends will be Vic-
tor Quintanilla and Brett Sigman
with Darrell Smith (weak side)
and Rakeem Quinn (strong) re-
turning at the outside linebacker
positions. Rakeem Quinn, a soph-
omore, is the lone non-senior in
that group,


Willie Quinn, a senior, and
Pryor, a junior, are currently at
the safety positions, though Barth
said Quinn could be moved back to
cornerback, where he played last
season.
Quincy Welch, Jacobie Cham-
bers and Trubias Hill, the first a
junior, the latter two seniors, are in
the mix at cornerback.
Another new wrinkle for the
2009 Tiger Sharks will be senior
Zach Smith over center. Having
not played football in two years
for a variety of reasons, Barth has
taken a bask-to-basics approach to
his new quarterback
"His footwork, throws, ball-han-
dling have all been good," Barth
said. "He needs to learn the receiv-
ers and how they run their routes.
One of the keys to our season is
that our quarterback has to de-
velop and provide the leadership
we had last year with Tyrone Daw-
son."
Barth said Pryor, who played
quarterback in the spring and
threw for 130 yards and two touch-
downs in the spring jamboree,
could also be used at quarterback.
Another key to success this sea-
son is improved conditioning on
the line and avoiding the series of
injuries up front that plagued the
Tiger Sharks' offense the second
half of last season.
"We are not as big, but we are
more experienced on the offensive
line," Barth said. "We can't sustain
the injuries we did last year; we
are not that deep."
.Williams will be at center with
McLemore and Ghris Fbxworth,

Sims will man the tackle positions
with transfer Tom Woleslagle join-
ing the mix when he enters school
next week.
Barth takes comfort in an abun-
dance of wealth at the skill posi-
tions.
Pryor, a wingback the previous
two years, will move to fullback.
Pryor had nearly 1,000 all-purpose
yards last year and will be counted
on for similar production.
"Fullback is the feature back in
(the Fling-T) offense, so he'll get a
good portion of the carries," Barth
said, adding that Pryor provides
game-breaking ability once beyond
the line of scrimmage. "He will
also help the wingbacks because
defenses will have to gear to stop
him because one guy can't tackle
Calvin."


' Smith, who rushed for over 500
yards before a midseason knee in-
jury forced Barth to sit him on of-
fense, will be one wingback, Welch
the other.
Quinn, who averaged nearly 15
yards a catch, will be at wide re-
ceiver, with Hill rotating in and Sig-
man at tight end.
"I throw to my backs a lot, and
that is one of the pluses of this of-
fense," Barth said. '"We can get dif-
ferent guys in there and defenses
will have trouble double-teaming
any player."
The final change from last
season is a schedule that is front-
loaded and features just four home
games as the Tiger Sharks' un-
beaten home record last season
made a trip to Port St. Joe unap-
pealing to potential foes.
The Tiger Sharks open with
three-straight large schools, in-
cluding Bay and Rutherford, and
compete in a district that has been
reduced from eight to six teams,
with Jay Freeport and Sneads
leaving and rival Blountstown ar-
riving for a schedule less heavy on
travel.
"The enthusiasm and effort so
far has been good, and the cama-
raderie has been good, too," Barth
said. "I'm pleased so far.
"My goal is to make up some of
those missing home games by win-
ning the district and being home

All bluster, very little bite


laudette comes and goes with minimal damage


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
Tropical Storm Claudette raced
through Gulf County Sunday evening
bringing heavy rains, some minor
flooding to coastal areas and causing
sporadic-power outages.
The arrival of the storm was
somewhat of a surprise; it grew from
a Tropical Depression to a Tropical
Storm in the space of 12 hours Satur-
day night heading into Sunday.
Initial feeder bands from Tropical
Storm Claudette began impacting the
county late Sunday afternoon.
At the Emergency Operations
Center in Port St. Joe, some four
inches of rain were recorded by Mon-
day morning, but at the Water Plant
in Wewahitchka less than an inch of
rain, 0.6 inches, fell overnight..
Thbre were two power outages. A
power line was felled near Sunset Cir-
cle in Port St. Joe and a transformer


blew north of the Stump Hole on St.
Joseph Peninsula. Power in both 'ar-
eas was restored quickly, emergency
management officials said.
Light rain continued to fall Mon-
day morning, and a few more show-
ers cropped up during the day, but
most of the clouds and storms asso-
ciated with Claudette were out of the
area by nightfall on Monday.
The primary remnant from the
storm Monday morning was standing
water in coastal areas, particularly
on County 30-A heading to St. Joseph
Peninsula and Indian Pass where
work crews were removing debris
from roadways Monday morning.
"It was primarily a rain event,"
said county emergency management,
director Marshall Nelson.
Wind gusts near 35 -mph were
-recorded in the county emergency
management officials said.
The center of the storm traveled
past the Cape San Blas area of St. Jo-


seph Peninsula about 5:30 p.m. ET on
Sunday, but feeder bands continued
to bring rain and wind throughout
the night.
Storm surge in Gulf County, aid-
ed by low tide times, was minimal
though there was some minor beach
erosion.
The beach restoration project on
St. Joseph Peninsula held well as
did the newly-reinforced Stump Hole
area of County 30-E. Water did not,
breach any major roadways.
St. Joseph Peninsula State Park
personnel evacuated all its overnight
.campers on Sunday, standard oper-
ating procedure for the state park
in the event of a tropical storm, but
the park reopened to all visitors, in-
cluding overnight campers, Monday
morning.
No shelters were opened. No'
bridges have been or are expected to
be closed, emergency management
officials indicated.

While the north end of the county experienced less
than an inch of rain, the south end recorded more
than four inches, leaving standing water as the
"biggest hazard on Monday morning after the storm
passed.

The Christian CONSCIENCE


Use Me, Lord

Use me for your glory, Lord,
in all I say and do.
Let my light shine brightly,
that others might see you.
Help me hold tightly to what
is eternal, the things which are
temporal let loose.
I know there's no U-Haul
behind a hearse, and neither is
there a caboose.
We brought nothing into this
world,
We'll take nothing out when we
leave.
Help me show this to others,
that they might see and believe.
Help me show others the
strength of my anchor, when
storms arise each day.
Lord, hold my hand and guide
me as I try to lead the way.
Help me keep my eyes on
Jesus, it's a must to win this race.
Help me show what true love
is, when'a person is saved by
grace.
I will honor you each day, Lord,
for this grace you've shown to me.
Let me be a living pattern,
Lord, that others might see thee.
Billy Johnson


jrch attendance down?


Why is chi
When a message is obviously not true
and is delivered by teachers that excuse
immorality, saying, "Oh, they are just
backsliding! They'll be all right!" reasonable
adults reject that message. Where is
backsliding in the New Testament? Guess
what? It isn't there! Some teachers better
take another look at what is being taught, in
some of these "Bible" schools.
Many of the people that I have talked
with have been turned off by some who call
themselves Christians. People who claim to.
be Christians have cheated them or failed
to pay for work that has been done for them,
etc. Some say that they won't do business
with Christians. And who can blame them?
Some "Christians" talk a lot about the
Bible, but do you know that in the Bible, the
word "Bible" doesn't exist? What does exist
is the word "Scripture." The word occurs
only once in the Old Testament, in Daniel
10:21, and it is interesting that it is a quote of
an "Angel," possibly the Lord Himself.
In the New Testament, we find
"Scripture" 53 times. Yet most of these are
references to passages in the Old Testament.
Only in 2 Peter 3:16 do we see a reference
to the writings of the New Testament as
Scripture. So what is Scripture? According to
2nd Peter 1:20-21:" ... knowing this first that


simply expressions of extremism. Things like
this and the teaching that a person can live "
a life of sin and still be sure of heaven, turn
people off. They are also quickly turned off
by those who claim to be Christian yet live
immoral and selfish lives. Who would want -
to go to church to be with liars, thieves, users -
of profanity and those who practice sexual
immorality?

At the Mexico Beach Christian Worship

no prophecy of Scripture is of any private
interpretation, for prophecy never came by
the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as
they were moved by the Holy Spirit."
On the surface, this appears to refer only
to prophecy, but it could refer to other kinds
of Scripture as well.
If you have been baptized by the Holy
Spirit (See 1 Corinthians 12:13.), you have
learned how God, through the person of
the Holy Spirit, transfers information to the
human mind. And if you have read the entire
New Testament more than once or twice,
you know that God did not take over the
minds and hands of its authors. Each writer
recorded what he, when inspired by the Holy
Spirit, remembered or observed or was told.
This explains the minor differences among
accounts. If they all wrote exactly the same
thing, it would be obvious that they were
nothing more than puppets.
' The fact that with one exception, all of
the New Testament authors were killed for
their testimony is further evidence of the.
truthfulness of their writings.
It is not helpful to say "God wrote the
Bible," or "The Bible is.infallible," etc.,
especially since any thinking person, reading
all of the Scriptures a few times, can see
that these statements are not true, and are

School District NEWS


Each year the Student Pro-
gression Plan and the Code of
Conduct are revised to reflect
mandates by the legislature and
to incorporate changes recom-
mended by the student progres-
sion/code of conduct committee.
The school board has approved
the following revisions for both
plans:
Student Progression: 1) Stu-
dents suspended out of school
will receive assignments and
may earn a grade up to 59. The
student will be given the number
of. days suspended plus one to
complete the assignments.
2) Students may enroll in the
district's virtual school, but must
have been a public school student
the prior year and must have the
essential Internet connections,
hardware and software.
3) Elementary students in
grades K-2 are expected to score
80 percent or higher on the Dis-
trict determined sight word list
in order to be considered for pro-


motion. Students will be given
multiple opportunities during
the school year to master sight
words.
4) The DIBELS test has been
replaced with the Florida Assess-
ment for Instruction in Reading
(FAIR)
5) The physical education
waiver for middle school students
needing remediation or by parent
request for a student to partici-
pate in another course or the stu-
dent is participating in physical
activities outside the school day,
which is equal to or in excess of
the mandated requirement has
been extended to grades K-5.
6) High school students who
have not passed the College
Placement Test in math by .the
beginning of their senior year
will be offered the Math for Col-
lege Readiness course.
7) Omitted any reference to
June retakes of the FCAT as the
state stopped the retake option
May 2009.


8) TV Productions cannot be
used as credit toward meeting
the Fine Arts requirement.
9) Students who take a course
in community service may use
the hours for Bright Futures eli-
gibility.
10) Replaced the HSCT with
FCAT for adult education stu-
dents.
Code of Conduct: 1) Absences
due to sickness or injury may be
documented by a parent or a phy-
sician if the student is continually
sick or repeatedly absent from
school.
2) Upon return to school from
an absence, the student must
bring a note from parents ex-
plaining the absence'or the par-
ent must contact the school in
person, by e-mail or phone. If
the parent wishes to contact the
school by telephone, e-mail or in
person, it must be done within
three (3) days after the absence
or the absence will be unex-
cused.


3) If a student has five unex-
cused absences within a calen-
dar month, a parent conference
will be held. If a pattern of non-at-
tendance is established, the child
study team will suggest options,
such as attendance contracts,
alternative programs or other
strategies, which will encourage
students to attend school.
4) Clarified the zero toler-
ance policy for students with
disabilities and a 45 day place-
ment in an alternative educa-
tional setting.
FCAT reading data for grades
3-10 is reported districtwide by
number and percent for Levels
1 and 2: Grade 3 Level 1-22 (14
percent), Level 2 -15 (10 percent);
Grade 4 Level 1-20 (13 percent),

GCCC goes green and
high-tech with new
program offerings
This fall, GCCC's pro-
gram offerings have expand-
ed to include several innova-
tive new programs designed
to respond to a growing
interest in new alternative
energy technologies.
The Gulf Coast Technol-
ogy Division is leading the
way with a new Associate in
Applied Science degree and
Technical Certificate Pro-
gram. The Alternative En-
ergy Engineering Technol-
ogy (AET-AAS) degree pro-
gram offers students three
core courses in sustainable
and renewable energies and
three applied courses work-
ing with instruments and
equipment The main focus
is centered on photovoltaic
technology, but biofuels, bio-
mass and geothermal power
will be studied, as well.
The AET certificate pro-
gram is designed as contin-
ued education for profes-
sionals who are seeking ad-
vancement or specialization
in alternative and renewable
technology. The courses will
provide hands-on experi-
ence for engineers and con-

CONTRIBUTED PHOTOS'
Stone Mill and Howards Creek class picture.


Gulf County EMTs and


firefighters team up for training


Fire and EMS departments, like
many professions, are in a constant
state of education and training. Part
of this training is EVOC, or Emergen-
cy Vehicle Operations. Its purpose is
to provide the tools needed by fire-
fighters and EMTs to safely navigate
to, operate on and return from emer-
gencies. \
Stone Mill Creek Volunteer Fire
Department hosted the second lo-
cal EVOC class, consisting of both
classroom and closed course driv-
ing taught by Gulf County EMS in-
structors Teresa McArdle and Matt
McGuffin. Stone Mill Creek worked
out their new attack engine, a 2008
quad cab Freightliner with a 1,300
gallon tank. Howard Creek Fire
Department joined in with their
new 2008 Kenworth 2,500 gallon


pumper. Wewahitchka High School
graciously allowed the use of their
student parking lot for the closed
course training. The fit was tight,
very tight for some of the eight.sta-
tions in the series, but everyone
did a great job in maneuvering the
course and testing their skills on
the new apparatus.
Port St. Joe High School provided
facilities for the Port St. Joe Fire De-
partment EVOC training held ear-
lier in the month. PSJFD worked out
main structure engine 531, a 2004
custom Pierce with 750 gallon capac-
ity, and structure-brush attack en-
gine 532, a 1992 E-One also with 750
gallon capacity.
The participants reviewed such
subjects as physics of equipment
movement, risk management, psy-


chology of the operator and the civil-
ian, and basic fire-ground safety as
it pertains to vehicle and roadside
operations. The. closed course itself
consisted of extreme tight angle ma-
neuvers, such as docking, parallel
parking and serpentine driving both
forward and backward.
"Think of how much trouble most
drivers will go to in avoiding paral-
lel parking ... now imagine parallel,
parking a 35-foot long fire truck,"
says PSJFD Chief John Ford.
Gulf County EMS plans to hold
another class in the near future. A
follow-up' course will be held later
this fall to delve more deeply into
ambulance operations.
. For more information, please
contact EMS Director Shane Mc-
Guffin at 229-8002.
