And they all said, Yea. Port St. Joe commission ers on Tuesday night unani mously approved a develop ment order for the Northwest Florida Renewable Energy Center (NWFREC), the last governmental hurdle for the $220 million, 55 megawatt en ergy plant. Commissioners did so with one signicant caveat directed at a more contro versial aspect of the project. The development order bars Rentech, the Califor nia-based company that acquired the project earlier this year and is developing it, from using as fuel any non-native invasive species, particularly Arundo donax, a wickedly quick-growing spe cies of grass. Grow elds had been per mitted for the north end of the county, but were aban doned and initial plantings eradicated months ago, ac cording to White Construc tion, which permitted the grow operation. Former EMS director charged with grand theft Commissioners nalize county redistricting By Valerie Garman Star Staff Writer In its second public hearing Sept. 27 to consider adoption of an amended redistricting map of Gulf County, the Board of County Commissioners was met with no public comment and adopted the new district map with a 5-0 vote. The county district map was redrawn in compli ance with a state mandate that requires districts be reevaluated every 10 years based on new census data. The BOCC must submit the revised map to the Florida Department of State and the Supervisor of Elections by Oct. 7. Counties are required to keep district popula tions as equivalent as possible, within a 1 to 3 per cent deviation, and use natural divides to eliminate gerrymandering. However, District IV was an exception because it is under a Federal Consent Decree that trumps the states requirements. District IVs lines were not touched, and the district remained far outside the 3 percent deviation, with a much smaller population than the other four districts. The new district map increased the area of Com missioner Bill Williams District III, while decreas ing Commissioner Ward McDaniels District II, to even out the district populations. District III saw a population decrease of 372 from 2000 to 2010, while District II, at the northwest end of the county, in creased by 282, not counting the inmate population. Districts I, IV and V were not changed. Commissioner Warren Yeager said he hopes the school board will adopt the same lines to avoid con fusion.

James Shane McGufn, 39, was arrested last Thursday by investiga tors from the Pensacola Operations Center of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Gulf County Sheriffs Ofce. McGufn was charged with one count of grand theft, a third-degree felony, according to a release from the FDLE. A third-degree felony is the least serious felony charge in the state of Florida and is punishable by a maxi mum of ve years in prison. The investigation into McGufn stems from May 2010, when the FDLE received a complaint that McGufn was using a county-issued credit card for unauthorized purchases. McGufn, who had been director of Gulf County EMS for 15 years, re signed his position on the evening of June 1 after being confronted by the allegations. According to the FDLE release, a comprehensive review of McGufns county credit card statements, high lighting more than 3,000 individual purchases, revealed that he made ap proximately $1,108 in purchases he subsequently used for personal use. McGufn was booked into the Gulf County Jail and later released on his own recognizance. The 14th Judicial Circuit State Attorneys Ofce will prosecute this case. Gulf County EMS operates under the budgetary umbrella of the Board of County Commissioners. The FDLE investigation has loomed over the EMS department since last spring. Houston Whiteld was appointed by the BOCC as the new EMS director following McGuf ns resignation. By Valerie Garman Star Staff Writer Susan Ruth is no stranger to the organic process of songwriting. She knows Kenny Chesneys hit song You Had Me at Hello was unmistakably inspired by Renee Zellwegers line from the 1996 ro mantic comedy Jerry Maguire. In (Nashville) you can go to a movie and see writers whipping out their pens down the aisles, Ruth said. It also happens in con versations over dinner. Its pretty funny. Ruth said inspiration is usually pulled from normal life sequences: books, conversations, environ ment, poignant movie dialogue, offhanded comments, jokes and so on. sing a song Songwriters festival arrives next weekend Above, Jillia Jackson and Will Rambeaux perform on the porch at the Thirsty Goat during last years Blast on the Bay Songwriters Festival.

Local A2 | The Star Thursday, October 6, 2011 The next big country hit could be inspired by the white sands of the For gotten Coast as the area plays host to a talented assemblage of songwrit ers straight from the streets of Nashville for the third annual Blast on the Bay Songwriters Fes tival, which will be held in various venues in Port St. Joe, Mexico Beach and Indian Pass Oct. 14-16. Nashville songwriter Tim Buppert said his trip to the festival last year prompted him to begin writing a song called Mexico Beach, which he hopes to perfect be fore he makes the trip back this year. Ruth, Buppert and 18 other songwriters will perform up-close and per sonal in area restaurants and bars throughout the weekend. From fresh-faced 15year-old Abigail Rose, who began playing guitar at age 11, to festival favor ites on the verge of bigtime success like Sherrie Austin, who will soon be featured on a Sundance Channel reality show, the visiting artists have writ ten hundreds of songs collectively and are eager to share them with the 1930 W. hwy 98, Port St. Joe, FL 32456 Downtown Highland view TUESDAY FRIDAY 9-6 SATURDAY 9-2 10% OFF EVERYTHING IN STOCK Golfers Specials FOR THE MONTH OF O CTOBER at Saint Joseph Bay Golf Club H ere are four new specials for the month of O ctober you will not want to miss out on at the local SJ B G C located at 700 C ountry C lub R d.

SONGWRITERS from page A1 locals. Friday night begins with a slathering of music where artists will play in rounds throughout the night, start ing at Provisions and end ing with a late-night jam session at The St. Joe Bar. On Saturday, there will be an open Songwriters Workshop at 2 p.m. ET at Dockside Caf in Port St. Joe. The workshop, led by a panel of talented Nashville songwriters, will exam ine the art and business of songwriting in an informal, open discussion. Organized in conjunc tion with the Gulf Alliance for Local Arts, the two-hour workshop is open to all ages. Participants will an swer questions such as how an idea becomes a song and how to get a song re corded. It will wrap up with a critique from the pros for any musicians hoping to get feedback on their origi nal music. Those interested in critiques can play their songs live or bring a CD. Typed lyrics are also help ful in the critique process. Saturday will continue with music at the Haughty Heron and Toucans, and the festival will once again conclude on Sunday with an afternoon of pickin and sto rytelling at the Indian Pass Raw Bar. Ive done a bunch of festivals in other places, but the Port St. Joe one was just a different vibe more laid back, less developed, Buppert said. The Raw Bar, its just a very unique place. Its very different than any other Florida town Ive played at. Buppert, who moved to Nashville in 1991 to become a songwriter, said festivals like the Blast on the Bay offer artists a chance to re charge their batteries. One of the main things, it helps remind you that there are people out there that are still listening to this music, Buppert said. Its the guy that works at the Port Inn or the guy that used to work at the old pa per mill were really just trying to write a song that connects with them. Some times we forget the end user. The brainchild of Jason Bogan, manager of opera tions for the Port Inn and Mainstay Suites, the song writers festival has grown exponentially since its be ginning in 2009 from seven songwriters to 20 and from three venues to seven. Its probably the most talented group of song writers that youll nd at any songfest, Bogan said. Theyre performing their own original songs that they wrote for Garth Brooks, that they wrote for Faith Hill, so you get to hear it in a different light. Bogan said 75 percent of the artists are returning from last year, and the new artists are looking forward to becoming a part of the festival for years to come. The great thing about this event and others like it is youre still up close and personal with the artists, said Bogan, who noted the crowds dont usually ex ceed 400 in the small area venues. Weve been blown away each year, and I think well continue to see that. Bogan said it has amazed him to see the community band together in support of the festival, even in trying economic times. With help from many local sponsors, all weekend shows and ac tivities are free. Bogans uncle Will Ram beaux is a songwriter in Nashville and has helped with the planning since day one. The idea of the song writers festival has really become popular in the last few years, Rambeaux said. Theres been a popu lar songwriters festival in Gulf Shores (Fla.) for a few decades based on a club called the Flora-Bama on the Florida Alabama line. Jason grew up right there, and I think he remembered those songwriters festivals from when he was a kid. Bogan wanted to bring a songwriters festival to Port St. Joe, so he called up Uncle Will in Nashville, and Rambeaux came down to Port St. Joe four years ago to check out the area. I was just smitten with Port St. Joe, Rambeaux said. Its just a great little town. It was just everything songwriters would like to be a part of. The writers in Nashville really love the place, so theres really no end in sight. Rambeaux has an im pressive resume and has written many hit songs in cluding Faith Hills Wild One, John Michael Mont gomerys Hold On to Me and many other songs for artists like Kathy Mattea, Patty Loveless and Blake Shelton. Rambeaux said the idea of the songwriters festival has become one of Nash villes biggest commodities. (Nashville is) the best place in America now for songwriters, Rambeaux said. Its a constant inux of writers looking to make their dreams come true. Even after Rambeaux earned his degree in litera ture, he could still hear his old guitar in the corner call ing his name. Ever since he made the transition from academic writing to song writing, he has made a good living combining his two biggest passions. The music business may be in bad shape, but the people still need mu sic, Rambeaux said. Like water, air, food they need music. DEVELOPMENT from page A1 Buzzett said he wanted to ensure that the grasses would not be a fuel source for the plant. A Rentech spokesperson present at the meeting said the company intended only to use woody biomass, forest residue remaining after log ging operations at the plant, and had no intentions of using the fast-growing grasses. The intent is to use 900 dry tons a day of woody pulp left cleaned from forests after logging operations. The spokesperson also contended that with the losses of paper and pulp in dustries, NWFREC will help restore sustainable forest practices to the region. He stated all fuel would come from a 50 mile radius. Resident Jon Hooper was among those skeptical of the claim and cautioned commissioners about pos sible degradation of the local natural resources. These are not your re sources to give away; they are our resources, Hooper said. Left unanswered was nancing for the plant, an other touchy subject in the debate. The U.S. Department of Energy months ago put the term sheet for a loan guar antee on hold and to date there are no indications that public funding is forthcom ing for the project. One of the primary arguments of oppo nents for two years was that public money should not be spent on biomass projects. Rentech ofcials have been exploring the private market for months and are optimistic of securing nancing soon. The vote to approve came amid great passion from both opponents and propo nents of the plant. A dozen or so opponents began to picket outside City Hall in the afternoon and continued later at the Centennial Building, where city ofcials had moved the regular bi-monthly meeting to accommodate the antici pated large crowd. That crowd reected the ssures between supporters and foes of the project and arguments that have echoed since the project came to Port St. Joe in 2009. Beyond invasive species and public nancing, oppo nents have concerns about how the project will impact quality of life in an area known for eco-tourism and stunning natural resources.

Local The Star| A3 Thursday, October 6, 2011 the bay and questions about sustainable fuel sources were among the key argu ments to turn away the de velopment order. Is it a good match? said Indian Pass resident Trish Petrie. Is it what people want? Is it worth the risk? Tread gently. Port St. Joe is a wonderful town. It will get another industry. A problem for commis sioners, Mayor Mel Magid son posed rhetorically, was linking contentions to facts. If people want us to be rationale in considering this we need facts and not claims that could not be sub stantiated, Magidson said. Supporters of the plant noted that the project had jumped over every regula tory hurdle and would bring needed new jobs and indus try to a community facing unemployment over 10 per cent. The project would cre ate some 180-200 jobs during construction and at least 25 direct permanent jobs with a company estimate of an other 100 indirect jobs in the fuel (timber) industry, and inject a payroll that would reach into the millions. NWFREC is also seen as a magnet for other renew able energy industries in Gulf County. Local business owners David Warriner and Pat Hardman said they didnt mind seeing the county be rst, alluding to NWFREC being the rst commercialsized application of the Sil vaGas technology developed by Rentech. This county is dying, said local electrical contrac tor Kenny Strange, noting that during the 70 years the former paper mill operated the bay and surrounding environment still thrived. There are no jobs here. People are moving away. It is not going to get better un til we do something. Commissioners, fac ing approval from state regulatory agencies and a recommendation that all requirements were met for the development order, and hearing little if any additional information not already dissected over the past two years, approved the development order. I know we have agen cies in this state that are charged with determining if this thing meets require ments, said Mayor Mel Magidson. We have regu latory agencies that estab lish rules. I have to defer to them. I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAY Her eyes met mine as I walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to have her. She wagged her tail, not too exuberantly, so I wouldnt be afraid. As I looked at her in the kennel she blocked my view from a little accident she had in the back of her cage. She didnt want me to know that she hadnt been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and she didnt want me to think poorly of them. So many more are out there who havent walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

The Florida Cabinet recently confirmed the appointment. DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. announced the appointment Sept. 13, but under Florida law, the Cabi net must confirm the appointment. Clay brings a tremendous amount of land management knowl edge and conservation experience to DEP, Vinyard said in a release. As the Director of the Division of State Lands, he will play an integral role protecting Floridas valuable natural, cultural and recreational resources by overseeing the man agement of our public lands. Smallwood began his career as a forester in 1978 with the St. Joe Company, working his way to president of St. Joe Timberland in 2000. He retired from the St. Joe Company in 2010. During his 30 years at the St. Joe Company, Smallwood managed more than 1.1 million acres of land and planted more than 18 million trees. He also worked with various conserva tion groups and state agencies to identify environmentally sensitive lands for protection. I have dedicated my career to the efficient conservation and management of Floridas lands, and am excited to continue this work at DEP, Smallwood said in the release. I look forward to working with Secretary Vinyard, the DEP staff and engaging the public on the important issues re lated to Floridas valuable land re sources. The DEP Division of State Lands Director is responsible for the administration, planning, pro gramming, budgeting and execu tion of the operations of the Bu reaus of Appraisal, Public Land Administration, Land Acquisition, Survey and Mapping and the Office of Environmental Services.

Thursday, October 6, 2011 Opinion A4 | The Star There are not many left. They are members of a club that closed its membership many years ago. To be able to speak with a member is a true gift, to nd many from this dwindling club in the same place is no less than a miracle. Those who live in Heard County, Ga., or Randolph County, Ala., have heard relatives talk about those who went to see her and the predictions she made. Mayhayley (Muhhay-lee) Lancaster was many things, but the ladies I spoke to remembered her as the fortune teller. Mayhayley was born in 1875 and died in 1955. It is said she was born with a caul or with the placental sack covering her face. I looked into this and found that it is deemed unusual, but not abnormal. It was believed that those born with this veil, mask or caul, had special powers. After speaking to these ladies, I must say that I believe she had special powers. Keep in mind that those who really experienced Mayhayley rst hand are in their 80s and 90s now. The ladies with whom I spoke were all in this age range. They were all as sweet as they could be and more than willing to share their memories of Mayhayley. My mama is staying in a place for a while (until she can get around better) that is lled with ladies (and a couple of men) in the golden years of their lives. I have never felt so loved and so appreciated as I did by these folks who live there with mama. I enjoy talking to my Mama about her childhood and her memories. I want to be able to share these memories with my grandchildren some day. We were talking about children. She told me of her mother bragging about fooling Mayhayley. It seems that when my grandmama was young, she went to see Mayhayley to have her fortune told. This would have been in the 1920s. Mayhayley told her she would have three children and that she would have a son followed by two daughters. At the time, my grandmama was bragging about fooling Mayhayley, she only had two children. The oldest was a son and my mama. Then there was a surprise baby sister who is 12 years younger. My mama takes credit for her baby sister much the way I take credit for my baby brother. She said she went into the woods everyday and sat on a stump and prayed herself a baby sister. Mayhayley got the number of children correct; she even got the names of the rst two correct and was just a little off on the third. Mama says that grandmama did that (changed the name) in spite of Mayhayley. About this time the door eased open and a lady in her 80s followed her walker in. She asked Are yall talking about Mayhayley? I said Yes Maam, what can you tell me? She smiled, looked down and then looked away like a shy little girl. I must have been about 14, she said. She went on to tell me that Mayhayley said she would get married and have four children and there would be two boys and two girls. I asked her if she had children and she said Yes, two boys and two girls. She smiled. She went on to tell me about the marble Mayhayley wore in place of a lost eye and the hut where she did her fortune telling. I asked her if Mayhayley used cards or a crystal ball or something. She said No, she just looked at your hand. I asked her how folks got to Mayhayleys across the Georgia line and she said by wagon or on foot. She got a little smirk on her face and said No transportation and no birth control. The ladies I spoke with couldnt remember how much Mayhayley charged. They thought a quarter or fty cents. I found that her rate later on was $1.10 (a dollar for her and a dime for the dog). Another lady with a walker stopped me in the hall and asked me if I was the one asking about Mayhayley. I said Yes Maam, what do you know? She said at the time she went to see Mayhayley, she was dating a man named Bill. Mayhayley told her that she would marry a man Port St. Joe city commissioners had it right when they decided to pass, for now, on taking title to the former Gulf Pines Hospital property. The numbers were adding up to a fat decit the city could ill afford to stomach at this time, particularly given the variables back due property taxes, what the IRS might or might not accept to settle tax liabilities, the cost of demolition and asbestos abatement. Just too many unknowns to jump in now while the real estate market remains depressed and what the city might be able to realize in the sale of the land is a guess. Resident Christine McElroy made a ne point when she lauded commissioners for passing on the hospital land when the citys stated top priority is xing a water problem that, for many, remains a chronic aspect of life. But well argue that the Gulf Pines discussions and nal decision reect a microcosm of the broader ills that plague the nation and what passes for governance today. We are bombarded daily with the often inane howling at the moon that passes for action in Washington, D.C. The president and his opponents on the other side of the aisle, at least judging by the eight or nine who wish to replace the president in the White House, seem to be shouting past each other while becoming further disconnected to the rest of the nation. Watching and listening, a voter could come away with the belief that the direction the sun rises and sets each day is up for debate. Democrats seem frustrated with President Obama while Republicans switch their date for the prom every few weeks, from Sarah Palin to Donald Trump to Michele Bachman to Rick Perry to Chris Christie. By the end of October, Kenny from the cartoon South Park might have the inside track for the nomination. And all the while Congress moves at a pace only Congress understands, a pace grounded less on action than on stylish inaction. Is it much different in Gulf County? Port St. Joe city commissioners, in large measure, passed on taking title to the Gulf Pines land because they could not secure a commitment from either the Board of County Commissioners or the Gulf County School Board regarding unpaid property taxes. Those taxes represented the difference between a palatable equation and an indigestible one. Never mind that neither of those entities is likely to realize those tax dollars any time soon as the hospital, now shuttered for 5.5 years, decays and transforms one of Port St. Joes more beautiful neighborhoods into near blight. Never mind that the city was the entity best positioned to take control of the land and plat it to place it on the property tax rolls, where in the long run long-term vision equals stumbling block the land would benet all taxing authorities, not to mention the neighbors watching the hospital fall in on itself. What mattered more, it would seem, was leverage, and the county, in particular, had the city right where it seems the BOCC always prefers beholden, in need of anything, in this case nothing more than a deferment on property taxes in order to earn more property taxes for everybody. But the city and the county cant seem to join together in even a passing rendition of Kumbaya. These are two governing bodies that still have unnished business pertaining to a years old interlocal agreement that has cost the city, and taxpayers, tens of millions of dollars in infrastructure projects with grant money secured by the county providing a fraction of the funding. Because? A re tax or a re house; take your pick. Yep, closing that interlocal agreement which was at best a ransom note from the county to create services it could not provide in exchange for allowing the city to annex WindMark Beach, at least a decade from build-out is hung up over a re tax. The county insists, despite the lack of many structures at WindMark Beach and the presence of re departments on either geographical side in St. Joe Beach and Highland View, that the portion of the agreement that binds the city to build a re house or fund one with a re tax is cause for county commissioners to hold up closing out the interlocal agreement, though all other work and pledges have been met. A re house that is years away from being a need. This kind of pettiness prevents the city from any condence of assistance from the county and is a reection of the chasm that remains among governing authorities in the county. In a time of great difculty, as the economy struggles, job creation is minimal to non-existent and the community starves for a forward vision, the community remains stuck in a past in which leverage and power trump performing the public good. The city commission, county commission, school board, they function almost as planets in diverging orbits. Port St. Joe commissioner Bill Kennedy noted during the debate pertaining to extending alcohol sales that his hope was that the passion brought to that topic be injected into more pressing problems facing the community. A perfect start would be replacing petty politics that characterize intergovernmental relations today with a joint vision for tomorrow, one forged of continuous and productive communication among governing authorities whose interests right now converge more than ever. Just as in the nations capital, as long as elected ofcials spend their time speaking past rather than to each other we are on a fast train heading nowhere. Octoberfest means all in the family Keyboard KLATTERINGS Memories of Mayhayley Taking the long view TIM CROFT Star news editor October is a lot more than pumpkins, fall festivals and Halloween for me. My oldest brother was born in October. And so was my youngest son. And, if that wasnt enough, my favorite grandson also slid into the world in the tenth month. October spells family for me. Leon was the rst best friend I ever had. You dont get to pick your brothers but I sure wouldnt throw him back. I dont ever remember life without him. He broke in most of the clothes I wore in those early years. Hed sit next to me at supper and explain which foods were good for me and which were llers. He taught me to lean forward when we ran; how to line the sight up on that ofcial Red Ryder BB gun; and which trail would get me safely though the woods. He showed me how to milk a cow. And, to the best of my memory, he was the rst person to put a baseball in my hand. He would push me around a mite. I gured he was just toughening me up for life. He would make me do his chores. He organized the yard mowing. He pointed out which row was mine when we were cutting okra or picking cotton. Somehow Leon was always in charge. We could complain, argue for a vote or plan to munity but the plain truth was he knew so blooming much more than us there wasnt no other intelligent path to take. It was like fate sealed both of our roles. He shepherded me and our little brother to the movies on Saturday. He led the way over to Pat Houstons Grocery where wed buy baseball cards. If I wanted to go to town, it was alright, Mom would say, as long as Leon goes with you. If he liked Tennessee Ernie Fords singing, so did I. If he was a Chicago Bears fan, so was I. If he didnt like school or a particular teacher, then I didnt like them either. There is a lot more to being the oldest brother than meets the eye! I will tell you something I bet you dont know about Leon. He would kid me around girls; sometimes he said things that would downright embarrass me in front of LaRenda Bradeld or Jane Hill. Hed give me crazy advice about buying candy for girls and then hinting that they were overweight so I could eat most of it myself. Or hed get on me about kissing a certain girl when he knew good and well I wouldnt touch her with a ten foot pole! But guess what? When I took Charlotte Melton to an eighth grade party and Leon drove us, he never kidded or joked or said a word. He knew that I liked Charlotte and it was my rst date ever and instead of making fun or having a high ole time or showing out, he treated both Charlotte and me with the utmost respect. I will never forget that. God gave me a big brother who knew when to do what! Jesse was born on Oct. 1. He was due Christmas of that year. My youngest son likened to not have been at all! He weighed less than 2 pounds and his little lungs fought for every single breath. Sometimes, to this day, as I lay down at night I can still hear Dr. Benton saying if we can get him air lifted to Sacred Heart and if he is a real ghter, he might have a chance. It is amazing what Jesse taught me about life and prayer and faithfulness and miracles, in the rst week of his life! He couldnt mow the yard worth a ip. He didnt get carried away with the mundane. Hed drive me crazy playing Nintendo all day long. He would eat at a snails pace just to teach me patience. He favored the Cubs over the Cardinals and the Packers over my Bears just to show me, I reckon, his dogged independence. He beat to a drum sometimes of which I was not always familiar. But he was a son that thought his way along, never embarrassed the family and who made me proud at every turn. When things get moving pretty quickly today, too fast for me to gure on the run, I call Jess for advice. Luke came along in October six years ago. He was the rst grandchild I ever held. He was the rst grandchild I silently promised the moon. He was the rst grandchild who, with a host of parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and the like clamoring for his attention, ran to me! Luke and I have gone to the zoo, explored closets, swam in the ocean and chased Bad Louie to Deadwood City and back. And we are just getting started! He is old enough to phone us. K.K., what are you doing? Im telling you, kings have never received a better greeting! Life is still worth living because I have Luke to look forward to. I want to chase after him and hear the laughter from both of us as I never quite seem to corral him. I want to make that memory of his eyes alive and alert as we high step together. I cherish the role of his all time best good buddy. I wish I had been the brother Leon has been to me. I wish I had been the father that Jesse deserved. I want Luke to remember me long after Im gone, the same way I remember my grandfather. And I hope and pray that all three of my October boys understand and appreciate my never ending love and admiration for each of them.

She said No, but the man I married was a Bill also. She smiled. Another lady eating lunch waved me over to talk to her. She remembered Mayhayley vividly, noting that she was scary looking and wore a burlap dress, Guyana sack apron and a police hat of some sort. In researching this a little more, I found out that Mayhayley did indeed wear some sort of military hat on occasion. She also told me that Mayhayley burned dried corn stalks in her hut. When I asked her why, she told me fuh heat with kind of a are you stupid tone in her voice. I thought she might have burned them to invoke spirits or something. I just laughed. Mayhayley made a fortune by telling fortunes. They said she hid those quarters and dollars and dimes in the hen house, the pig pen and in the mattress. She lived in that old hut until a little before she died. They say she bought herself a big ne house. She bought the bank also. If you nd the story about Mayhayley interesting, you might enjoy Oracle of the Ages Reections on the Curious Life of Fortune Teller Mayhayley Lancaster. It was written by Dot Moore about ten years ago. She does Mayhayley more justice than I can do in a 1,000 words. This is a true story. I know its the truth, the ladies told me and I saw it in their eyes. BN Heard can be found on the internet at www. CranksMyTractor.com. MAYHAYLEY from page A4 A caring community Dear Editor: This letter is long overdue, but I would like to thank the help of the rst responders of Overstreet for their quick response on March 26, 2011. I have lived in this particular community for over 20 years and have never needed any medical response until that evening, but they showed up and kept me going until the ambulance arrived. I had a seizure, the rst in my life, and luckily, my sisterin-law called 911 while my partner administered CPR as I had stopped breathing, until the rst responders came to my home. I had just come home that day from having surgery in Panama City the day before. I wish I could remember, or know the names of the rst responders and members of the ambulance unit, but all I remember is a man with a black mustache leaning over me when I came back. I truly thank everyone involved in that incident, and will never forget that mans face. Also, the lady in the back of the ambulance that tended to me on the way back to the hospital. Thank all of you so much. You will never know how much you are all appreciated. Also, to the staff of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf; after a separate but medically related surgery performed in Pensacola at Sacred Heart Hospital this fall, I began to hemorrhage at that site of the surgery earlier this month. Again, I wish I could remember names of the doctor and nurse attending me in the emergency room, but I believe they will know who I am. I am truly grateful, as I was treated with kindness and the utmost respect for what I was going through. April, thank you, as you are the only one whose name I remember. And lastly, I would like to thank all the family, friends, churches, co-workers, the VFW and folks I dont even know for their prayers throughout all of this. I know I had prayers from the Atlantic to the Pacic, but for a homegrown gal, those that came from my hometown are the most special. I know that God has a place for me to be, and saved me due to your prayers. Thank you, to all of you; those whom I know the best and those whom I will never know. You know who you are, and I am so grateful to you for caring for someone whose life was saved, not just once, but probably twice. Sheila Lucas Port St. Joe By Ed McAteer Contributing Writer City of peace is the meaning of Jerusalem. However, in reality, this city oozes with blood. Abounding with ax murders, run amok bulldozers, shootings, beatings, vicious protests and the constant threat of terrorist attacks, Jerusalem is more a crucible of death than a haven of peace. If it were any other city, such anguish could be ignored. Nevertheless, this is Jerusalem! Passages in both the Old and New Testament show that Jerusalem is the center on which world events track in the months and days leading up to the return of Jesus Christ. To those who understand this prophetic reality, Jerusalem is more than just another city scorched by disorder: It is a thermometer for measuring and anticipating endtime events. Zechariah 14:1-2 is a shaping passage outlining the events in Jerusalem immediately preceding Jesus return: [Quoting KJV] Behold, the day of the Lord comes, and your spoil shall be divided in the midst of you. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses ried, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Many Biblical experts agree that in this vision, Zechariah explains that immediately before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the entire city of Jerusalem shall be taken by a conquering force which other scriptures reveal to be a German-Led European empire. But notice: The event that causes all Jerusalem to be overrun by European armies is a violent conict inside Jerusalem that ends in half of the city [going] forth into captivity. First, half of Jerusalem is taken, and then the whole city is conquered. This prophecy indicates what I believe will be a Hamasdominated Palestinian insurgence, backed by Iran, and will take half the city of Jerusalem captive. The Antichrist will prepare to take Jerusalem. This rst phase is mobilizing the nations to Armageddon. When half of Jerusalem falls, it begins a series of events. A rush of crisis that leads directly to Christs Second Coming! The army of the Antichrist will be cruel. The phrasing of the sentence structure portrays Israel ghting ferociously and without bounds, but not able to stand against the crushing assault of the collective armies. The residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city, refers to the army of Israel already cut to pieces, but rm to defend herself, and die to the last man, if necessary. This is why even during an economic, political, social and even personal calamity we must not take our eyes off Jerusalem. God always shows up in time. My Bible tells me He will do so again to rescue his city. In many of my previous articles, I cautioned we must watch world events constantly to better comprehend the age we are now living in. Events happening in that city are the thermometer that measures how close we are to the most humbling event in human history: the Second Coming of Jesus Christ! Courcys Intelligence Brief suggests that Islamist leaders are purposefully striving to turn the revolutionary energies sweeping the region into a weapon against the Jewish state. There is evidence that Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood are working together to refocus the energy of the Arab Spring onto Israel and the Palestinian question and away from the purely domestic issues that were the early inspiration, it says. The cause for Palestinian statehood also has momentum, thanks to increasing direct and indirect support from the international community most notably from the American administration of Barack Obama. International support for the declaration of a Palestinian state, perhaps as early as during September 2011, is building. The hope that Palestinian statehood will lead to peace between Israel, and the Palestinians is both naive and dangerous. In the end, it can only result in further conict. In the unlikely event that Israel accepts a Palestinian state according to 1967 borders, conict will be inevitable. If East Jerusalem and the West Bank are allowed to fall under the sole control of the Palestinians, another Gaza will be created in an instant, this one on the doorstep of Jerusalem. Embedded in the hills of Judea and Samaria, Irans radical Islamic proxies would have the tactical advantage and be able to conduct violent attacks on Jewish towns and cities throughout the West Bank. Moreover, Jerusalem would be under constant threat. On the other hand, if Israel goes against an international opinion and rejects the declaration of a Palestinian state, the Palestinians, especially Hamas, will likely resort to pursuing statehood through violence. Should this occur, blame for the violence will be pinned squarely on Israel (because it rejected the peace overtures) and Israel would be further disliked by the international community. Jerusalems cobbled streets are rumbling. Tension is mounting, and war is brewing. This is sobering. It was not long ago that those who believed in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ were laughed at as way out conspiracy theorists. Today, world conditions are so extreme and foreboding, even some in the mainstream are beginning to wonder quietly, secretly if Christs return might be imminent after all. The answer to that question is revealed by events currently unfolding in Jerusalem. The Bible says that when Christ returns to this Earth, He will return to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. We need to watch Jerusalem, this remarkable indicator of end-time events. Even now, events in that city indicate that the Messiahs return is imminent, and that the time rapidly approaches when he will transform Jerusalem into exactly what its name means: a city of peace! Ed McAteer is a resident of Port St. Joe. Is Jerusalem still a city of peace? LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor: The Biomass plant decision is nally over and our City Commissioners stayed the course and stood up for a new innovative industry to help save our economy and bring much needed jobs to our community. Now, we have a chance at becoming a hub for alternative energy companies including research and development for Northwest Florida. In addition, we witnessed an exercise in one of our basic freedoms under unique circumstances and that is the freedom of speech (not to mention protest). Our Commissioners made sure everyones voice was heard regardless how ridiculous and even where they were from. We had people not a part of our community speak their troubled minds and in particular the misguided and misinformed from Tallahassee plus a tourist. It was an amazing collection of individuals who sought attention to themselves and wanted to do anything to derail and disrupt the approval to the point of being rude to any positive comments made by those in favor. Gulf Countys population has been shrinking, contrary to the other counties in Florida, for several years. Our unemployment rate is over 10 percent, businesses and homes have been abandoned and foreclosed upon and yet the environmental extremist offer only complaints without facts and have no plan to stop this decay affecting our community. You can go through life complaining about everything or you can get your facts straight and do positive things to improve the community around you. Have the protestors forgotten that Gulf County was spawned from a paper mill and two chemical plants since the 1930s? It was a time when jobs were abundant and the pay was great allowing our worker-citizen to come home each day proud of their accomplishment and provide for the family. Peace, prosperity and positive attitudes prevailed in those times. I am sure those old plants put out some chemicals in the air that are today in serious question but the Biomass plant in no way compares to them. It is like comparing the exhaust of a diesel truck to a bicycle. The new plant will put no more in the atmosphere than two Tahoes driving around all day in Gulf County. The protestors pulled every trick they could to include saying that the air will harm the lungs of our children and grandchildren when they come to visit. I noticed they said when they visit and that is exactly what our children and grandchildren are doing now and would have to do in the future because there is nothing here to sustain them. Our families are being torn apart by the economy and lack of opportunity to have a future. I am encouraging my children and grandchildren to come and stay as long as possible, I will even take them on a tour at the new Biomass plant when it is built. If they do move, I say farewell and good luck in nding anyplace like this again. You Commissioners for caring about our community and setting an example for other politicians to follow. Good Job! Jim Garth Port St Joe Congratulations to city commissioners

Some sharks, its true, are very good to eat and some of us just cant resist the urge to mess with something that cannot only defend itself but actually eat us given the right circumstance. Some nearshore species thrive in U.S. waters, where at least some protection has been around for decades. There are good numbers of bull sharks all over the Gulf Coast, fair populations of great hammerheads lots of blacktips the favorite target of recreational shermen and one of the better-tasting sharks along with the mako, which is an offshore species and rare. Catching sharks generally is a pretty simple operation. You put out a large, bloody chunk of an oily sh like bonito, add a bit of chum in the form of chopped threadns or menhaden and wait until the current takes the scent to any nearby sharks. When they smell food, they trace the scent back to the source, sometimes from hundreds of yards away. Obviously, you dont want to be shark shing on the sugar-sand beaches of Panhandle tourism centers, even though there are quite a few sharks cruising these waters from spring through late fall. Better is to head for the jetties around the major passes, if youre shorebound, or maybe out to a nearshore reef if you have a boat. Where baitsh gather, youll nd sharks with them. Of course, in the case of larger sharks, larger sh qualify as bait. Great hammerheads, which reach 14 to 15 feet with some frequency, consider nothing tastier than a 6-foot-long tarpon. At Boca Grande during the height of the tarpon season there from mid-May through June, its common for these monsters to inhale several hooked tarpon every day, and some giant bull sharks also get in on the feast. Bulls are also a common species around Panhandle inlets and in the lower bays, as well as along the beaches. Theyre easily identied by the blunt snout and chunky-looking body. They are among the most aggressive of sharks and are the species most commonly identied in attacks on humans. Smaller sharks, such as blacktips, often follow the mullet migrations; when these sh swarm out of the passes with the rst big cold fronts, the sharks come from every direction to get in on the feed. Blacktips average 40 to 50 pounds but sometimes exceed 100 pounds. They are jumpers, and they are good to eat a good target for any beginning shark sher. Blacktips are easily distinguished by the black tips on the dorsal n. The smallest sharks youre likely to see are bonnet sharks, which never reach lengths much more than 3 feet and weights of 10 to 15 pounds. These look somewhat like a hammerhead, but with less extended lobes on the head. Theyre often seen on the ats where redsh and trout cruise, and they can be caught on shrimp or a piece of cut sh with ease. The mako is one of the most awesome sharks found in the Gulf of Mexico; its usually found at the edge of the continental shelf, where it feeds on tuna and swordsh. Makos have a horric set of jaws; they look like a smaller version of the great white, which is a real rarity in the Gulf because its preference for chilly water. Makos reach more than 10 feet long and are spectacular jumpers, reportedly leaping more than 10 feet above the water at times when hooked. Theyre not much of a danger to humans because theyre so rarely found inshore. Catching one is a rare accident, usually accomplished by swordsh or marlin anglers slow-trolling big live baits. All the larger sharks are real sluggers, and whipping one more than 200 pounds is likely to be all the sharking youll want for a while; it sometimes takes a tag-team of anglers to bring the larger ones to the boat. SHARK TACKLE Though shing for offshore sharks takes huge reels and heavy lines testing 80 pounds or more, most smaller editions found near shore can be caught on standard grouper tackle; an 8-foot rod, 4/0 reel and 40to 60-pound test will readily whip sharks to 150 pounds. Microber line is a great choice for sharking because it gives much more leverage to wear them down; mono stretches and makes the ght harder on sher as well as sh. Large shark or small, youll need a wire leader as long as the shark if you really want to get one in for a photo otherwise, the rough hide of the creature likely will wear through your line. Size 10 or heavier wire is a must. Its also wise to use circle hooks, typically in sizes 10/0 and larger, which set themselves, and which also make it possible to release the shark with minimal damage because the hook likely will set in the jaw rather than being swallowed. HANDLING SHARKS Sharks have a exible spine that allows them to turn around and bite objects near their own tail including your hand if you are careless. Many sharks continue to ght once they are boated, snapping at anything that comes within reach its probable more people have been bitten by sharks out of the water than in. The safe way to grip small sharks for dehooking is to grab them rmly just behind the head. This keeps both them and you safe long enough for you to use a dehooking tool to get the hook clear. For larger sharks, hook removal is not a safe option on most; its best to clip the leader at the hook and release the sh; the hook will soon wear a hole and fall out. Though the hook in the jaw is surely a bother to a shark, its probably not a huge annoyance; commercial shark shermen often catch them with dozens of stingray barbs imbedded in jaw, mouth and throat. Last but not least, just remember the line in Jaws where they decide they must have a bigger boat; big sharks readily take out their anger on the boats of shermen who hook them, and if you are out there in a 10-foot jonboat, it might not end well for you. M ARK GORE | Special to Florida Freedom Bull sharks are one of the more common inshore sharks and one of the most aggressive most of the rare shark attacks on humans in U.S. waters come from this species, which sometimes prowls far into large bays and even will up coastal rivers. Below, a hooked sh like this amberjack are a favorite target of sharks, particularly around deep-water reefs. The largest sharks, including great hammerheads that exceed 15 feet long, can take most of a 100-pound tarpon in a single gulp. Some shermen just cant wait to bite into a sharkF RANK S ARGEANT | Special to Florida Freedom Freshwater Gag grouper are being found and caught in all depths of water from 65 to 200 feet. Leave the docks early for the best bite, and make sure you have plenty of live bait. Big AJs are on the Bridge spans and around the B sites and can be caught on live bait and diamond jigs. Inshore Offshore October is off to a good start as the I.C.W. canal here in St. Joe is holding great trout and red sh. Try shing the T for good action on live bait or grubs and jigs. Big mullet are easily found in St. Joe Bay behind Blacks Island and around Fire Tower area. Anglers in Gulf County are enjoying the ne shing lately. Rivers, creeks and streams are holding good sh throughout the county. Lots of good-sized sheepshead are being caught around Howard Creek and in the big river. Good bass reports from are coming in from Kennedy Creek, and the Brothers is producing coolers full of catsh.

PORT ST. JOE WEWAHITCHKA SP O RT S www.starfl.com A Section Thursday, October 6, 2011 Page 7 By Jason Shoot Florida Freedom Newspapers BONIFAY Kodi Russ wants his hands on the football, but even Holmes Countys standout running back has his limits. Russ has welcomed Jacky Miles insertion into the Blue Devils backeld, and the two athletes com bined for ve touchdowns in a 41-0 victory over Port St. Joe in a non-district football game Friday night at Memorial Field. Holmes County, which plays in District 3-1A, re mained undefeated at 5-0 overall. A District 4-1A team, Port St. Joe fell to 1-3. We wanted this one because they took us out in basketball last year, Russ said. Russ carried the ball 12 times for 92 yards, and he scored all three of his touchdowns in the rst quarter to help the secondranked Blue Devils build a 20-0 lead through the rst 12 minutes. He reeled off a 30-yard run on the second play from scrimmage for one touchdown and added a pair of 1-yard plunges. Miles, a junior who transferred from Gracev ille and is playing in his rst season for Holmes County, has added depth and a change of pace to Russ nimble antics with the football. Russ is still the primary ball carrier, but Miles has the speed around the edge to contrib ute in the running game. Miles squirted through the Tiger Sharks defense on a 9-yard run for a 27-0 lead at halftime. In the third quarter, Miles capped a nine-play, 84-yard drive with a 7-yard touchdown run around the left end for a 34-point margin. He brings a good asset to the team, Russ said of Miles. Hes quick, he has good hands and he has real good speed. He can turn nothing into some thing. Blue Devil quarterback Ethan Russ excelled while running his teams bal anced offense. He complet ed 13 of 16 passes for 167 yards and added another 43 yards on ve carries. He has the ability to heave the ball down the eld, but it was his touch with his passes that was worthy of commendation. Backup running back Jonathan Williams broke loose on a 66-yard touch down romp in the fourth quarter to provide the nal margin and implement the use of a running clock. Holmes County domi nated the rst half on both sides of the ball. The Blue Devils held Port St. Joe to 53 yards and three rst downs through two quarters. Holmes County compiled 215 yards and 11 rst downs over the same span. The Tiger Sharks host Franklin County at 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday as part of Homecoming festivities.

Doni Lanier again n ished rst overall in the girls race, followed by Brittany Grifn, Scout Flowers, Hannah Johnson and Mileena Shirah. By Tim Croft Star News Editor During a game in which the teams com bined for 105 points and more than 800 offensive yards, the host Gator de fense provided the deci sive swing. Wewahitchka (3-2) won its third-straight game after its defense came up with three critical stops early in the fourth quarter as the Gators overcame a 41-22 halftime decit by scoring the nal 21 points for a wildly entertaining 57-48 win over Franklin County. On successive series in the early minutes of the nal period, the Ga tors twice stopped the Seahawks (2-4) on downs, recovered a fumble and converted each defen sive stand into points, to wipe out a 48-36 Franklin County lead over the nal 11 minutes. Theryl Brown led the way, rushing for 255 yards and four touchdowns on just 21 touches, returning a kickoff 66 yards to set up another touchdown and icing the game with a 5 yard touchdown dash, and two-point conversion with 1:49 left. What can you say after a game like that? wondered Wewahitchka coach Dennis Kizziah. We just played better in the second half. We knew they probably couldnt stop us and I think we kind of wore them out at the end there. I think you could see that. But this was all by the kids. These guys just battle. There is no quit in this team. The Seahawks provid ed plenty of reason to quit throughout the track meet that was the rst half. Behind the running of Dwayne Griggs (19 carries for 186 yards and three touchdowns) and Brenden Walden (13 carries for 130 yards and a touchdown), the Seahawks came out blazing and answered ev ery salvo from the Gators. Wewahitchka helped dig their early hole on special teams. The Ga tors twice fumbled away kickoffs; both turnovers converted into Franklin County points, and Griggs responded to a Justin Flowers, rst quarter touchdown by taking the ensuing kickoff 81 yards for a score. The Seahawks were up 28-14 with 5:02 still re maining in the rst period after an opening seven minutes that included a kickoff return for touch down, another 66 yards to set up a touchdown, two fumbled kickoffs, four rushing touchdowns and one passing. Griggs ran 8 and 9 yards for touchdowns the rst answered immediately by a 64-yard touchdown scamper by Brown and the second by Browns long kickoff return which set up Flowers score. After Griggs returned the ensuing kick for a touchdown, Wewahitchka fumbled away a second kickoff and Franklin Coun tys Christopher Granger made it count with a 23yard touchdown reception of a Zachary Armistead pass. Armistead hit a touch down pass early in the second period from 9 yards and Flowers re sponded on the ensuing drive when he found Jayln Addison (63 rushing yards and two touchdowns) in stride along the left side line on fourth-and-12 from the Franklin 36 to make it 35-22. But Walden rumbled down the left sideline slipping away from a pile of would-be tacklers for a 47-yard score just before the half ended 4122 at intermission. The third period seemed more of the same as Brown sprinted 33 yards for a touchdown in the early minutes only to have Griggs answer with a 65-yard touchdown dash through the right side of the Gator defense. But the Seahawks would not nd the end zone again and the Gator defense turned the tide in the early minutes of the fourth quarter, the Gators scoring four unanswered touchdowns to keep their winning streak alive. This one is tough to swallow, said Franklin County coach Josh Wright. The difference was we could not stop what they did and they got some stops on what we did. I am not going to blame the kids. This is the responsibility of the coach es to put them in a position to win and we did not do that. The Gators travel to Graceville on Friday for a 7 p.m. CT kickoff.

The Port St. Joe teams came away with three wins over the Wewahi tchka Warriors. For the 7-8 year old Dolphins and 9-10 year old Jaguars, the games turned into easy wins, 30-0 for the Dolphins and 40-0 for the Jaguars. Fans that stayed for the last game, however, were treated to a battle. The Buccaneers won their game in double overtime. The game was dominated by hard-nosed defense. The rst half ended with the Bucs leading 6-0, the lone score coming from Jacob Renfro who scooped up a Wewahitchka fumble and rumbled 20 yards for a touchdown. With a little over three minutes left in the game the Warriors clawed down the eld, moving from their 35 to the Port St. Joe 1 with 2.8 seconds left. A quarterback sneak with time running out tied the game and sent it into over time when the extra point conversion failed. According to Big Bend League rules, the rst overtime gives each team the ball at the 10 yard line with four downs to score. Neither team scored. PSJ then got the ball at the 50 yard line for four downs and gained 12 yards. If the Warriors could get the ball back over the 50 with their four downs they would win. Their effort fell a yard short and the Buc caneers won their rst regular season game. The youngest team, the Dolphins, played a solid game. Brenon Foxworth had two touchdowns while gaining 140 yards overall. Josh Farmer gained 100 yards rushing, and scored the nal touchdown on a 43-yard blast up the middle. Max Cargill and Hayden Byrd excelled of fensively and defensively, Cargill scoring the third touchdown. The Jaguars scored on their rst ve possessions. Cameron Harmon went 60 yards for the rst touch down and Kendre Gant scored on a 72-yard sprint. Harmon scored from the 1st, after a Jacob Kennedy reception of a Josh Butts pass ended just short of the goal line. On the next Jag possession, Roman Harrison scored on a 31yard burst up the middle. Davien Welch electried the crowd with his speed and determination on the nal touchdown, going 60 yards. The Jaguar defense did not give up a rst down while holding the Warriors to minus yardage for the game. By Tim Croft Star News Editor For the third year in a row the Port St. Joe High School volleyball team will be digging pink. This years Dig Pink event, which promotes vol leyball along with breast cancer awareness, will be held during the nal regu lar season game, Oct. 20, against county rival Wewahi tchka in the R. Marion Craig Coliseum. That night is also Senior Night for the Lady Tiger Sharks. The junior varsity match begins at 6 p.m. ET and the varsity at 7 p.m. ET. And everyone is encour aged to wear pink, which in the past two years has helped transform The Dome into something re sembling a nursery for an infant girl. It is a cool event for us because we get to wear everything that we have to wear that is pink, said Raney Besore of the Lady Tiger Sharks. The boys like it to because they can wear pink. It is fun. Its kind of a cool event in that we are playing for fun and we are raising money for breast cancer. (Those who battle the disease) are strong, so we have to be strong. The Dig Pink event is held as part of a national cam paign by the Side-Out Foun dation, which is committed to the unication of volley ball and its alliance with the movement for breast cancer awareness and education. Founded seven years ago, the Side-Out Foundation also hosts clinics and camps with the aim of supporting breast cancer awareness and rais ing funds for clinical trials. We raised $1,200 two years ago the rst year we did it, $1,000 last year and our goal for this year is $1,200, said Port St. Joe coach Wayne Taylor. For a little school and a small com munity, given everything else we ask of them, that will be pretty good. This has become a pret ty big deal with college and high schools. Taylor said the idea came after his wifes sister battled breast cancer several years ago. Her cancer is now in re mission, but in his research at the time Taylor came across the Side-Out Founda tion right after it had been created. His team took to the idea immediately. Everyone knows some one who has been impacted by breast cancer, said Jac lyn Kerigan of the Lady Ti ger Sharks. It could effect us, it could effect our loved ones. After talking to team members, most have a personal story to tell about breast cancer. Oneika Lockley said she will be playing for her grand mother who has breast can cer. Ill play that night the hardest I have played all season, Lockley said. Nicole Spilde said shell be playing for Gina Meisner, a friend of the family who has successfully beaten the disease. It hits home, Spilde said. For Besore it is Stepha nie Howze, a young woman who has already had a bout with breast cancer. She is my age, Besore said. Ill be playing for her and remembering her when I am out there. But really, because we are girls, it could be one of us. All proceeds from the Dig Pink night, after costs, will go toward the Side-Out Foundation, a non-prot based in Washington, D.C. Event t-shirts are on sale for $15.

Students who do eat breakfast not only absorb nutrients and vitamins the body needs, but also demonstrate better concentration during their classes. Breakfast is served Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. local time for all students.

Many refer to 1st Corinthians 15, verses 1 through 8 as THE GOSPEL. Supposedly, when someone is not preaching this portion of scripture they are not preaching THE GOSPEL. Am I the only one who thinks it strange, that this portion of scripture, contains nothing about the message of Jesus, or the teachings of Jesus, or the commandments of Jesus? Have we put this so-called gospel of Paul ahead of the message of Jesus? The other day, I was watching a preacher on Christian TV, who was talking about water baptism. What he said about water baptism was biblical that it was a picture of what had happened to an individual, and did nothing spiritually for that individual. They are immersed, under the water, symbolizing the death and burial of the old nature, and then are allowed to arise, to walk in the newness of life, in the new heart and spirit that God had given them. I often wonder, of those who have submitted to water baptism by immersion, how many have really given up their lives of pursuing pleasure, and are living for God? An examination, of the kind of lives they are living, does not bring a good answer. The show supposedly took place at the Jordan River, and was beautifully done. It looked very religious, however, the remainder of the teaching, was not biblical. It was based upon a few of the writings of the Apostle Paul, and did not take the teaching of Jesus and His message into account. If your beliefs are only based upon what you hear in church, or hear on the radio, or see on TV, you wont understand what I am saying. The more I read my Bible, the more I am troubled by what I am seeing and hearing from those around me, that are supposedly Christians. I had a short conversation in a local fast food restaurant the other day with a retired preacher whom I have grown to like and highly respect. He had a pastorate in the local area for many years. We discussed the disgusting way, in which many in the area are putting their desire for money ahead of decency and responsible living. If we didnt utter words of warning to those who would put all of us in danger, so that a few can indulge in their addictions, we would be in trouble when we are judged by God. Any claim to Christianity by these people is bogus. At the lake of re, they will learn that we were right, and like the rich man in Luke 16:19-31, there will be no escape and they will have no way to warn their friends, with whom they have partied with on earth. Are you listening commissioners? Your judgment is waiting. Questions or comments are invited. Send to us at one of the addresses below: Are you concerned about your eternal destiny? At the Mexico Beach Christian Worship Center, you get vital teachings from a trustworthy Bible, every Sunday morning. We dont pass an offering plate, pressure you to give money, or pressure you to join. We believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and we believe that Jesus was God in human esh.

Our worship begins at 10 a.m. For those interested, we have midweek ministry, helping people on an individual basis. Inquire for more information.

I never wanted memories, I only wanted you. A million times I cried, if love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still. In my heart you hold a place, no one else could ll. If tears could build a stairway, and heartache make a lane, Id walk the path to heaven and bring you back again. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again. Happy Birthday Baby girl! Momma, Daddy and everyone loves and misses you dearly!

Hell guide our every footstep, If we read His Word and heed. Jesus gave us a choice, When He went to the cross. Accept His love or suffer the loss. Ive had a few problems down through the years, Had some heartaches, and shed a few tears. Most of these problems were brought on by greed. I wanted to do things my way, I just wouldnt heed. He loved me all this time, It took me a while to see. No matter what I did, He still provided for me. Im not a nished product yet, Hes still working on me. But I thank God every day, That Im not what I used to be. Billy Johnson The Christian CONSCIENCE Faith BRIEFS

As you know the Master Potter has taken his creation home to a special place among His masterpieces. Vincent Earl Rafeld loved life. He started his journey Jan. 28, 1957 and passed away at his home on Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2011. He did not simply exist, he embraced every day as a treasure and created many treasures of laughs, love and smiles for us all to enjoy. An accomplished artist, retired sherman, oysterman and mariner, a loving husband, family man, friend and blessing to all who knew him, he will be missed. He leaves behind wife, Linda Rafeld; mother Lora Rafeld Haddock; brothers Chuck Rafeld, Larry Charlton Rafeld and Terry Lee Rafeld; and sisters Sheila Rafeld Clevenger and MiChelle Rafeld Andrews. A memorial service was held on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 1 at the Fort Coombs Armory, attended by many friends and family. We hope you will enjoy his greatest gift to us all, the memories that remain, and know that his message to us all was to love each other and remember Gods Love Always! Family & Friends weep not for me, for I am waiting in heaven for thee. To my friends and caretakers, I would like to extend my thanks and gratitude to my friends for their support during my threemonth stay at the Bridge at Bay St. Joe nursing home. I would like to thank everyone for their prayers, visits, cards, gifts and words of encouragement during a difcult time. I would also like to thank the Bridge staff for being so nice and wonderful. I couldnt have been treated any better. My three months in therapy were very nice and the staff was very helpful. Thank you to everyone, Mary Zagorski Letter of thanks to the community We would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks for the loving kindness of the people in our area for the food, cards, owers and contributions during our time of sorrow. The First Baptist Youth and the Family Life Center were very dear to Davids heart. As I read your cards over and over again, they bless us and will continue to bless us for a long time to come. May God bless everyone for the expressions of friendship and care shown in the loss of our beloved David Freeman. Our special thanks go out to Pastor Mike and Robin Stroud, Associate Pastor Jason and LeeAnn Bennett, the First Baptist Church Deacons and Stephen Brown and Buddy Gaskin for the special part they played in our lives.

And they all said, Yea. Port St. Joe commissioners on Tuesday night unanimously approved a development order for the Northwest Florida Renewable Energy Center (NWFREC), the last governmental hurdle for the $220 million, 55 megawatt energy plant. Commissioners did so with one signicant caveat directed at a more controversial aspect of the project. The development order bars Rentech, the California-based company that acquired the project earlier this year and is developing it, from using as fuel any non-native invasive species, particularly Arundo donax, a wickedly quick-growing species of grass. Grow elds had been permitted for the north end of the county, but were abandoned and initial plantings eradicated months ago, according to White Construction, which permitted the grow operation.Former EMS director charged with grand theftCommissioners nalize county redistrictingBy Valerie GarmanStar Staff Writer In its second public hearing Sept. 27 to consider adoption of an amended redistricting map of Gulf County, the Board of County Commissioners was met with no public comment and adopted the new district map with a 5-0 vote. The county district map was redrawn in compliance with a state mandate that requires districts be reevaluated every 10 years based on new census data. The BOCC must submit the revised map to the Florida Department of State and the Supervisor of Elections by Oct. 7. Counties are required to keep district populations as equivalent as possible, within a 1 to 3 percent deviation, and use natural divides to eliminate gerrymandering. However, District IV was an exception because it is under a Federal Consent Decree that trumps the states requirements. District IVs lines were not touched, and the district remained far outside the 3 percent deviation, with a much smaller population than the other four districts. The new district map increased the area of Commissioner Bill Williams District III, while decreasing Commissioner Ward McDaniels District II, to even out the district populations. District III saw a population decrease of 372 from 2000 to 2010, while District II, at the northwest end of the county, increased by 282, not counting the inmate population. Districts I, IV and V were not changed. Commissioner Warren Yeager said he hopes the school board will adopt the same lines to avoid confusion.

James Shane McGufn, 39, was arrested last Thursday by investigators from the Pensacola Operations Center of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Gulf County Sheriffs Ofce. McGufn was charged with one count of grand theft, a third-degree felony, according to a release from the FDLE. A third-degree felony is the least serious felony charge in the state of Florida and is punishable by a maximum of ve years in prison. The investigation into McGufn stems from May 2010, when the FDLE received a complaint that McGufn was using a county-issued credit card for unauthorized purchases. McGufn, who had been director of Gulf County EMS for 15 years, resigned his position on the evening of June 1 after being confronted by the allegations. According to the FDLE release, a comprehensive review of McGufns county credit card statements, highlighting more than 3,000 individual p urchases,  revealed that he made ap proximately $1,108 in purchases he subsequently used for personal use.  M cGufn was booked into the Gulf County Jail and later released on his o wn recognizance.  The 14th Judicial Circuit State Attorneys Ofce will prosecute this case.

LocalA2 | The Star Thursday, October 6, 2011 The next big country hit could be inspired by the white sands of the Forgotten Coast as the area plays host to a talented assemblage of songwriters straight from the streets of Nashville for the third annual Blast on the Bay Songwriters Festival, which will be held in various venues in Port St. Joe, Mexico Beach and Indian Pass Oct. 14-16. Nashville songwriter Tim Buppert said his trip to the festival last year prompted him to begin writing a song called Mexico Beach, which he hopes to perfect before he makes the trip back this year. Ruth, Buppert and 18 other songwriters will perform up-close and personal in area restaurants and bars throughout the weekend. From fresh-faced 15year-old Abigail Rose, who began playing guitar at age 11, to festival favorites on the verge of bigtime success like Sherrie Austin, who will soon be featured on a Sundance Channel reality show, the visiting artists have written hundreds of songs collectively and are eager to share them with the 1930 W. hwy 98, Port St. Joe, FL 32456Downtown Highland viewTUESDAY FRIDAY 9-6 SATURDAY 9-2 10% OFFEVERYTHING IN STOCK Golfers Specials FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER at Saint Joseph Bay Golf ClubHere are four new specials for the month of October you will not want to miss out on at the local SJBGC located at 700 Country Club Rd.

Friday night begins with a slathering of music where artists will play in rounds throughout the night, starting at Provisions and ending with a late-night jam session at The St. Joe Bar. On Saturday, there will be an open Songwriters Workshop at 2 p.m. ET at Dockside Caf in Port St. Joe. The workshop, led by a panel of talented Nashville songwriters, will examine the art and business of songwriting in an informal, open discussion. Organized in conjunction with the Gulf Alliance for Local Arts, the two-hour workshop is open to all ages. Participants will answer questions such as how an idea becomes a song and how to get a song recorded. It will wrap up with a critique from the pros for any musicians hoping to get feedback on their original music. Those interested in critiques can play their songs live or bring a CD. Typed lyrics are also helpful in the critique process. Saturday will continue with music at the Haughty Heron and Toucans, and the festival will once again conclude on Sunday with an afternoon of pickin and storytelling at the Indian Pass Raw Bar. Ive done a bunch of festivals in other places, but the Port St. Joe one was just a different vibe more laid back, less developed, Buppert said. The Raw Bar, its just a very unique place. Its very different than any other Florida town Ive played at. Buppert, who moved to Nashville in 1991 to become a songwriter, said festivals like the Blast on the Bay offer artists a chance to recharge their batteries. One of the main things, it helps remind you that there are people out there that are still listening to this music, Buppert said. Its the guy that works at the Port Inn or the guy that used to work at the old paper mill were really just trying to write a song that connects with them. Sometimes we forget the end user. The brainchild of Jason Bogan, manager of operations for the Port Inn and Mainstay Suites, the songwriters festival has grown exponentially since its beginning in 2009 from seven songwriters to 20 and from three venues to seven. Its probably the most talented group of songwriters that youll nd at any songfest, Bogan said. Theyre performing their own original songs that they wrote for Garth Brooks, that they wrote for Faith Hill, so you get to hear it in a different light. Bogan said 75 percent of the artists are returning from last year, and the new artists are looking forward to becoming a part of the festival for years to come. The great thing about this event and others like it is youre still up close and personal with the artists, said Bogan, who noted the crowds dont usually exceed 400 in the small area venues. Weve been blown away each year, and I think well continue to see that. Bogan said it has amazed him to see the community band together in support of the festival, even in trying economic times. With help from many local sponsors, all weekend shows and activities are free. Bogans uncle Will Rambeaux is a songwriter in Nashville and has helped with the planning since day one. The idea of the songwriters festival has really become popular in the last few years, Rambeaux said. Theres been a popular songwriters festival in Gulf Shores (Fla.) for a few decades based on a club called the Flora-Bama on the Florida Alabama line. Jason grew up right there, and I think he remembered those songwriters festivals from when he was a kid. Bogan wanted to bring a songwriters festival to Port St. Joe, so he called up Uncle Will in Nashville, and Rambeaux came down to Port St. Joe four years ago to check out the area. I was just smitten with Port St. Joe, Rambeaux said. Its just a great little town. It was just everything songwriters would like to be a part of. The writers in Nashville really love the place, so theres really no end in sight. Rambeaux has an impressive resume and has written many hit songs including Faith Hills Wild One, John Michael Montgomerys Hold On to Me and many other songs for artists like Kathy Mattea, Patty Loveless and Blake Shelton. Rambeaux said the idea of the songwriters festival has become one of Nashvilles biggest commodities. (Nashville is) the best place in America now for songwriters, Rambeaux said. Its a constant inux of writers looking to make their dreams come true. Even after Rambeaux earned his degree in literature, he could still hear his old guitar in the corner calling his name. Ever since he made the transition from academic writing to songwriting, he has made a good living combining his two biggest passions. The music business may be in bad shape, but the people still need music, Rambeaux said. Like water, air, food they need music. DeEVeELoOPMentENT from page A1Buzzett said he wanted to ensure that the grasses would not be a fuel source for the plant. A Rentech spokesperson present at the meeting said the company intended only to use woody biomass, forest residue remaining after logging operations at the plant, and had no intentions of using the fast-growing grasses. The intent is to use 900 dry tons a day of woody pulp left cleaned from forests after logging operations. The spokesperson also contended that with the losses of paper and pulp industries, NWFREC will help restore sustainable forest practices to the region. He stated all fuel would come from a 50 mile radius. Resident Jon Hooper was among those skeptical of the claim and cautioned commissioners about possible degradation of the local natural resources. These are not your resources to give away; they are our resources, Hooper said. Left unanswered was nancing for the plant, another touchy subject in the debate. The U.S. Department of Energy months ago put the term sheet for a loan guarantee on hold and to date there are no indications that public funding is forthcoming for the project. One of the primary arguments of opponents for two years was that public money should not be spent on biomass projects. Rentech ofcials have been exploring the private market for months and are optimistic of securing nancing soon. The vote to approve came amid great passion from both opponents and proponents of the plant. A dozen or so opponents began to picket outside City Hall in the afternoon and continued later at the Centennial Building, where city ofcials had moved the regular bi-monthly meeting to accommodate the anticipated large crowd. That crowd reected the ssures between supporters and foes of the project and arguments that have echoed since the project came to Port St. Joe in 2009. Beyond invasive species and public nancing, opponents have concerns about how the project will impact quality of life in an area known for eco-tourism and stunning natural resources.

LocalThe Star| A3Thursday, October 6, 2011 the bay and questions about sustainable fuel sources were among the key arguments to turn away the development order. Is it a good match? said Indian Pass resident Trish Petrie. Is it what people want? Is it worth the risk? Tread gently. Port St. Joe is a wonderful town. It will get another industry. A problem for commissioners, Mayor Mel Magidson posed rhetorically, was linking contentions to facts. If people want us to be rationale in considering this we need facts and not claims that could not be substantiated, Magidson said. Supporters of the plant noted that the project had jumped over every regulatory hurdle and would bring needed new jobs and industry to a community facing unemployment over 10 percent. The project would create some 180-200 jobs during construction and at least 25 direct permanent jobs with a company estimate of another 100 indirect jobs in the fuel (timber) industry, and inject a payroll that would reach into the millions. NWFREC is also seen as a magnet for other renewable energy industries in Gulf County. Local business owners David Warriner and Pat Hardman said they didnt mind seeing the county be rst, alluding to NWFREC being the rst commercialsized application of the SilvaGas technology developed by Rentech. This county is dying, said local electrical contractor Kenny Strange, noting that during the 70 years the former paper mill operated the bay and surrounding environment still thrived. There are no jobs here. People are moving away. It is not going to get better until we do something. Commissioners, facing approval from state regulatory agencies and a recommendation that all requirements were met for the development order, and hearing little if any additional information not already dissected over the past two years, approved the development order. I know we have agencies in this state that are charged with determining if this thing meets requirements, said Mayor Mel Magidson. We have regulatory agencies that establish rules. I have to defer to them. I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAYHer eyes met mine as I walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to have her. She wagged her tail, not too exuberantly, so I wouldnt be afraid. As I looked at her in the kennel she blocked my view from a little accident she had in the back of her cage. She didnt want me to know that she hadnt been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and she didnt want me to think poorly of them. So many more are out there who havent walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

The Florida Cabinet recently confirmed the appointment. DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. announced the appointment Sept. 13, but under Florida law, the Cabinet must confirm the appointment. Clay brings a tremendous amount of land management knowledge and conservation experience to DEP, Vinyard said in a release. As the Director of the Division of State Lands, he will play an integral role protecting Floridas valuable natural, cultural and recreational resources by overseeing the management of our public lands. Smallwood began his career as a forester in 1978 with the St. Joe Company, working his way to president of St. Joe Timberland in 2000. He retired from the St. J oe Company in 2010.  During his 30 years at the St. Joe Company, Smallwood managed more than 1.1 million acres of land and planted more than 18 million trees. He also worked with various conservation groups and state agencies to identify environmentally sensitive l ands for protection.  I have dedicated my career to the efficient conservation and management of Floridas lands, and am excited to continue this work at DEP, Smallwood said in the release. I look forward to working with Secretary Vinyard, the DEP staff and engaging the public on the important issues related to Floridas valuable land resources. The DEP Division of State Lands Director is responsible for the administration, planning, programming, budgeting and execution of the operations of the Bureaus of Appraisal, Public Land Administration, Land Acquisition, Survey and Mapping and the Office of Environmental Services.

Thursday, October 6, 2011 OpinionA4 | The StarThere are not many left. They are members of a club that closed its membership many years ago. To be able to speak with a member is a true gift, to nd many from this dwindling club in the same place is no less than a miracle. Those who live in Heard County, Ga., or Randolph County, Ala., have heard relatives talk about those who went to see her and the predictions she made. Mayhayley (Muhhay-lee) Lancaster was many things, but the ladies I spoke to remembered her as the fortune teller. Mayhayley was born in 1875 and died in 1955. It is said she was born with a caul or with the placental sack covering her face. I looked into this and found that it is deemed unusual, but not abnormal. It was believed that those born with this veil, mask or caul, had special powers. After speaking to these ladies, I must say that I believe she had special powers. Keep in mind that those who really experienced Mayhayley rst hand are in their 80s and 90s now. The ladies with whom I spoke were all in this age range. They were all as sweet as they could be and more than willing to share their memories of Mayhayley. My mama is staying in a place for a while (until she can get around better) that is lled with ladies (and a couple of men) in the golden years of their lives. I have never felt so loved and so appreciated as I did by these folks who live there with mama. I enjoy talking to my Mama about her childhood and her memories. I want to be able to share these memories with my grandchildren some day. We were talking about children. She told me of her mother bragging about fooling Mayhayley. It seems that when my grandmama was young, she went to see Mayhayley to have her fortune told. This would have been in the 1920s. Mayhayley told her she would have three children and that she would have a son followed by two daughters. At the time, my grandmama was bragging about fooling Mayhayley, she only had two children. The oldest was a son and my mama. Then there was a surprise baby sister who is 12 years younger. My mama takes credit for her baby sister much the way I take credit for my baby brother. She said she went into the woods everyday and sat on a stump and prayed herself a baby sister. Mayhayley got the number of children correct; she even got the names of the rst two correct and was just a little off on the third. Mama says that grandmama did that (changed the name) in spite of Mayhayley. About this time the door eased open and a lady in her 80s followed her walker in. She asked Are yall talking about Mayhayley? I said Yes Maam, what can you tell me? She smiled, looked down and then looked away like a shy little girl. I must have been about 14, she said. She went on to tell me that Mayhayley said she would get married and have four children and there would be two boys and two girls. I asked her if she had children and she said Yes, two boys and two girls. She smiled. She went on to tell me about the marble Mayhayley wore in place of a lost eye and the hut where she did her fortune telling. I asked her if Mayhayley used cards or a crystal ball or something. She said No, she just looked at your hand. I asked her how folks got to Mayhayleys across the Georgia line and she said by wagon or on foot. She got a little smirk on her face and said No transportation and no birth control. The ladies I spoke with couldnt remember how much Mayhayley charged. They thought a quarter or fty cents. I found that her rate later on was $1.10 (a dollar for her and a dime for the dog). Another lady with a walker stopped me in the hall and asked me if I was the one asking about Mayhayley. I said Yes Maam, what do you know? She said at the time she went to see Mayhayley, she was dating a man named Bill. Mayhayley told her that she would marry a man Port St. Joe city commissioners had it right when they decided to pass, for now, on taking title to the former Gulf Pines Hospital property. The numbers were adding up to a fat decit the city could ill afford to stomach at this time, particularly given the variables back due property taxes, what the IRS might or might not accept to settle tax liabilities, the cost of demolition and asbestos abatement. Just too many unknowns to jump in now while the real estate market remains depressed and what the city might be able to realize in the sale of the land is a guess. Resident Christine McElroy made a ne point when she lauded commissioners for passing on the hospital land when the citys stated top priority is xing a water problem that, for many, remains a chronic aspect of life. But well argue that the Gulf Pines discussions and nal decision reect a microcosm of the broader ills that plague the nation and what passes for governance today. We are bombarded daily with the often inane howling at the moon that passes for action in Washington, D.C. The president and his opponents on the other side of the aisle, at least judging by the eight or nine who wish to replace the president in the White House, seem to be shouting past each other while becoming further disconnected to the rest of the nation. Watching and listening, a voter could come away with the belief that the direction the sun rises and sets each day is up for debate. Democrats seem frustrated with President Obama while Republicans switch their date for the prom every few weeks, from Sarah Palin to Donald Trump to Michele Bachman to Rick Perry to Chris Christie. By the end of October, Kenny from the cartoon South Park might have the inside track for the nomination. And all the while Congress moves at a pace only Congress understands, a pace grounded less on action than on stylish inaction. Is it much different in Gulf County? Port St. Joe city commissioners, in large measure, passed on taking title to the Gulf Pines land because they could not secure a commitment from either the Board of County Commissioners or the Gulf County School Board regarding unpaid property taxes. Those taxes represented the difference between a palatable equation and an indigestible one. Never mind that neither of those entities is likely to realize those tax dollars any time soon as the hospital, now shuttered for 5.5 years, decays and transforms one of Port St. Joes more beautiful neighborhoods into near blight. Never mind that the city was the entity best positioned to take control of the land and plat it to place it on the property tax rolls, where in the long run long-term vision equals stumbling block the land would benet all taxing authorities, not to mention the neighbors watching the hospital fall in on itself. What mattered more, it would seem, was leverage, and the county, in particular, had the city right where it seems the BOCC always prefers beholden, in need of anything, in this case nothing more than a deferment on property taxes in order to earn more property taxes for everybody. But the city and the county cant seem to join together in even a passing rendition of Kumbaya. These are two governing bodies that still have unnished business pertaining to a years old interlocal agreement that has cost the city, and taxpayers, tens of millions of dollars in infrastructure projects with grant money secured by the county providing a fraction of the funding. Because? A re tax or a re house; take your pick. Yep, closing that interlocal agreement which was at best a ransom note from the county to create services it could not provide in exchange for allowing the city to annex WindMark Beach, at least a decade from build-out is hung up over a re tax. The county insists, despite the lack of many structures at WindMark Beach and the presence of re departments on either geographical side in St. Joe Beach and Highland View, that the portion of the agreement that binds the city to build a re house or fund one with a re tax is cause for county commissioners to hold up closing out the interlocal agreement, though all other work and pledges have been met. A re house that is years away from being a need. This kind of pettiness prevents the city from any condence of assistance from the county and is a reection of the chasm that remains among governing authorities in the county. In a time of great difculty, as the economy struggles, job creation is minimal to non-existent and the community starves for a forward vision, the community remains stuck in a past in which leverage and power trump performing the public good. The city commission, county commission, school board, they function almost as planets in diverging orbits. Port St. Joe commissioner Bill Kennedy noted during the debate pertaining to extending alcohol sales that his hope was that the passion brought to that topic be injected into more pressing problems facing the community. A perfect start would be replacing petty politics that characterize intergovernmental relations today with a joint vision for tomorrow, one forged of continuous and productive communication among governing authorities whose interests right now converge more than ever. Just as in the nations capital, as long as elected ofcials spend their time speaking past rather than to each other we are on a fast train heading nowhere. Octoberfest means all in the family Keyboard KLATTERINGSMemories of MayhayleyTaking the long view TiIM CrROFtTStar news editor October is a lot more than pumpkins, fall festivals and Halloween for me. My oldest brother was born in October. And so was my youngest son. And, if that wasnt enough, my favorite grandson also slid into the world in the tenth month. October spells family for me. Leon was the rst best friend I ever had. You dont get to pick your brothers but I sure wouldnt throw him back. I dont ever remember life without him. He broke in most of the clothes I wore in those early years. Hed sit next to me at supper and explain which foods were good for me and which were llers. He taught me to lean forward when we ran; how to line the sight up on that ofcial Red Ryder BB gun; and which trail would get me safely though the woods. He showed me how to milk a cow. And, to the best of my memory, he was the rst person to put a baseball in my hand. He would push me around a mite. I gured he was just toughening me up for life. He would make me do his chores. He organized the yard mowing. He pointed out which row was mine when we were cutting okra or picking cotton. Somehow Leon was always in charge. We could complain, argue for a vote or plan to munity but the plain truth was he knew so blooming much more than us there wasnt no other intelligent path to take. It was like fate sealed both of our roles. He shepherded me and our little brother to the movies on Saturday. He led the way over to Pat Houstons Grocery where wed buy baseball cards. If I wanted to go to town, it was alright, Mom would say, as long as Leon goes with you. If he liked Tennessee Ernie Fords singing, so did I. If he was a Chicago Bears fan, so was I. If he didnt like school or a particular teacher, then I didnt like them either. There is a lot more to being the oldest brother than meets the eye! I will tell you something I bet you dont know about Leon. He would kid me around girls; sometimes he said things that would downright embarrass me in front of LaRenda Bradeld or Jane Hill. Hed give me crazy advice about buying candy for girls and then hinting that they were overweight so I could eat most of it myself. Or hed get on me about kissing a certain girl when he knew good and well I wouldnt touch her with a ten foot pole! But guess what? When I took Charlotte Melton to an eighth grade party and Leon drove us, he never kidded or joked or said a word. He knew that I liked Charlotte and it was my rst date ever and instead of making fun or having a high ole time or showing out, he treated both Charlotte and me with the utmost respect. I will never forget that. God gave me a big brother who knew when to do what! Jesse was born on Oct. 1. He was due Christmas of that year. My youngest son likened to not have been at all! He weighed less than 2 pounds and his little lungs fought for every single breath. Sometimes, to this day, as I lay down at night I can still hear Dr. Benton saying if we can get him air lifted to Sacred Heart and if he is a real ghter, he might have a chance. It is amazing what Jesse taught me about life and prayer and faithfulness and miracles, in the rst week of his life! He couldnt mow the yard worth a ip. He didnt get carried away with the mundane. Hed drive me crazy playing Nintendo all day long. He would eat at a snails pace just to teach me patience. He favored the Cubs over the Cardinals and the Packers over my Bears just to show me, I reckon, his dogged independence. He beat to a drum sometimes of which I was not always familiar. But he was a son that thought his way along, never embarrassed the family and who made me proud at every turn. When things get moving pretty quickly today, too fast for me to gure on the run, I call Jess for advice. Luke came along in October six years ago. He was the rst grandchild I ever held. He was the rst grandchild I silently promised the moon. He was the rst grandchild who, with a host of parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and the like clamoring for his attention, ran to me! Luke and I have gone to the zoo, explored closets, swam in the ocean and chased Bad Louie to Deadwood City and back. And we are just getting started! He is old enough to phone us. K.K., what are you doing? Im telling you, kings have never received a better greeting! Life is still worth living because I have Luke to look forward to. I want to chase after him and hear the laughter from both of us as I never quite seem to corral him. I want to make that memory of his eyes alive and alert as we high step together. I cherish the role of his all time best good buddy. I wish I had been the brother Leon has been to me. I wish I had been the father that Jesse deserved. I want Luke to remember me long after Im gone, the same way I remember my grandfather. And I hope and pray that all three of my October boys understand and appreciate my never ending love and admiration for each of them.

She said No, but the man I married was a Bill also. She smiled. Another lady eating lunch waved me over to talk to her. She remembered Mayhayley vividly, noting that she was scary looking and wore a burlap dress, Guyana sack apron and a police hat of some sort. In researching this a little more, I found out that Mayhayley did indeed wear some sort of military hat on occasion. She also told me that Mayhayley burned dried corn stalks in her hut. When I asked her why, she told me fuh heat with kind of a are you stupid tone in her voice. I thought she might have burned them to invoke spirits or something. I just laughed. Mayhayley made a fortune by telling fortunes. They said she hid those quarters and dollars and dimes in the hen house, the pig pen and in the mattress. She lived in that old hut until a little before she died. They say she bought herself a big ne house. She bought the bank also. If you nd the story about Mayhayley interesting, you might enjoy Oracle of the Ages Reections on the Curious Life of Fortune Teller Mayhayley Lancaster. It was written by Dot Moore about ten years ago. She does Mayhayley more justice than I can do in a 1,000 words. This is a true story.

I had a seizure, the rst in my life, and luckily, my sisterin-law called 911 while my partner administered CPR as I had stopped breathing, until the rst responders came to my home. I had just come home that day from having surgery in Panama City the day before. I wish I could remember, or know the names of the rst responders and members of the ambulance unit, but all I remember is a man with a black mustache leaning over me when I came back. I truly thank everyone involved in that incident, and will never forget that mans face. Also, the lady in the back of the ambulance that tended to me on the way back to the hospital. Thank all of you so much. You will never know how much you are all appreciated. Also, to the staff of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf; after a separate but medically related surgery performed in Pensacola at Sacred Heart Hospital this fall, I began to hemorrhage at that site of the surgery earlier this month. Again, I wish I could remember names of the doctor and nurse attending me in the emergency room, but I believe they will know who I am. I am truly grateful, as I was treated with kindness and the utmost respect for what I was going through. April, thank you, as you are the only one whose name I remember. And lastly, I would like to thank all the family, friends, churches, co-workers, the VFW and folks I dont even know for their prayers throughout all of this. I know I had prayers from the Atlantic to the Pacic, but for a homegrown gal, those that came from my hometown are the most special. I know that God has a place for me to be, and saved me due to your prayers. Thank you, to all of you; those whom I know the best and those whom I will never know. You know who you are, and I am so grateful to you for caring for someone whose life was saved, not just once, but probably twice.Sheila LucasPort St. JoeBy Ed McAteerContributing Writer City of peace is the meaning of Jerusalem. However, in reality, this city oozes with blood. Abounding with ax murders, run amok bulldozers, shootings, beatings, vicious protests and the constant threat of terrorist attacks, Jerusalem is more a crucible of death than a haven of peace. If it were any other city, such anguish could be ignored. Nevertheless, this is Jerusalem! Passages in both the Old and New Testament show that Jerusalem is the center on which world events track in the months and days leading up to the return of Jesus Christ. To those who understand this prophetic reality, Jerusalem is more than just another city scorched by disorder: It is a thermometer for measuring and anticipating endtime events. Zechariah 14:1-2 is a shaping passage outlining the events in Jerusalem immediately preceding Jesus return: [Quoting KJV] Behold, the day of the Lord comes, and your spoil shall be divided in the midst of you. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses ried, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Many Biblical experts agree that in this vision, Zechariah explains that immediately before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the entire city of Jerusalem shall be taken by a conquering force which other scriptures reveal to be a German-Led European empire. But notice: The event that causes all Jerusalem to be overrun by European armies is a violent conict inside Jerusalem that ends in half of the city [going] forth into captivity. First, half of Jerusalem is taken, and then the whole city is conquered. This prophecy indicates what I believe will be a Hamasdominated Palestinian insurgence, backed by Iran, and will take half the city of Jerusalem captive. The Antichrist will prepare to take Jerusalem. This rst phase is mobilizing the nations to Armageddon. When half of Jerusalem falls, it begins a series of events. A rush of crisis that leads directly to Christs Second Coming! The army of the Antichrist will be cruel. The phrasing of the sentence structure portrays Israel ghting ferociously and without bounds, but not able to stand against the crushing assault of the collective armies. The residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city, refers to the army of Israel already cut to pieces, but rm to defend herself, and die to the last man, if necessary. This is why even during an economic, political, social and even personal calamity we must not take our eyes off Jerusalem. God always shows up in time. My Bible tells me He will do so again to rescue his city. In many of my previous articles, I cautioned we must watch world events constantly to better comprehend the age we are now living in. Events happening in that city are the thermometer that measures how close we are to the most humbling event in human history: the Second Coming of Jesus Christ! Courcys Intelligence Brief suggests that Islamist leaders are purposefully striving to turn the revolutionary energies sweeping the region into a weapon against the Jewish state. There is evidence that Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood are working together to refocus the energy of the Arab Spring onto Israel and the Palestinian question and away from the purely domestic issues that were the early inspiration, it says. The cause for Palestinian statehood also has momentum, thanks to increasing direct and indirect support from the international community most notably from the American administration of Barack Obama. International support for the declaration of a Palestinian state, perhaps as early as during September 2011, is building. The hope that Palestinian statehood will lead to peace between Israel, and the Palestinians is both naive and dangerous. In the end, it can only result in further conict. In the unlikely event that Israel accepts a Palestinian state according to 1967 borders, conict will be inevitable. If East Jerusalem and the West Bank are allowed to fall under the sole control of the Palestinians, another Gaza will be created in an instant, this one on the doorstep of Jerusalem. Embedded in the hills of Judea and Samaria, Irans radical Islamic proxies would have the tactical advantage and be able to conduct violent attacks on Jewish towns and cities throughout the West Bank. Moreover, Jerusalem would be under constant threat. On the other hand, if Israel goes against an international opinion and rejects the declaration of a Palestinian state, the Palestinians, especially Hamas, will likely resort to pursuing statehood through violence. Should this occur, blame for the violence will be pinned squarely on Israel (because it rejected the peace overtures) and Israel would be further disliked by the international community. Jerusalems cobbled streets are rumbling. Tension is mounting, and war is brewing. This is sobering. It was not long ago that those who believed in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ were laughed at as way out conspiracy theorists. Today, world conditions are so extreme and foreboding, even some in the mainstream are beginning to wonder quietly, secretly if Christs return might be imminent after all. The answer to that question is revealed by events currently unfolding in Jerusalem. The Bible says that when Christ returns to this Earth, He will return to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. We need to watch Jerusalem, this remarkable indicator of end-time events. Even now, events in that city indicate that the Messiahs return is imminent, and that the time rapidly approaches when he will transform Jerusalem into exactly what its name means: a city of peace! Ed McAteer is a resident of Port St. Joe.Is Jerusalem still a city of peace? letterLETTER toTO theTHE editorEDITOR Dear Editor: The Biomass plant decision is nally over and our City Commissioners stayed the course and stood up for a new innovative industry to help save our economy and bring much needed jobs to our community. Now, we have a chance at becoming a hub for alternative energy companies including research and development for Northwest Florida. In addition, we witnessed an exercise in one of our basic freedoms under unique circumstances and that is the freedom of speech (not to mention protest). Our Commissioners made sure everyones voice was heard regardless how ridiculous and even where they were from. We had people not a part of our community speak their troubled minds and in particular the misguided and misinformed from Tallahassee plus a tourist. It was an amazing collection of individuals who sought attention to themselves and wanted to do anything to derail and disrupt the approval to the point of being rude to any positive comments made by those in favor. Gulf Countys population has been shrinking, contrary to the other counties in Florida, for several years. Our unemployment rate is over 10 percent, businesses and homes have been abandoned and foreclosed upon and yet the environmental extremist offer only complaints without facts and have no plan to stop this decay affecting our community. You can go through life complaining about everything or you can get your facts straight and do positive things to improve the community around you. Have the protestors forgotten that Gulf County was spawned from a paper mill and two chemical plants since the 1930s? It was a time when jobs were abundant and the pay was great allowing our worker-citizen to come home each day proud of their accomplishment and provide for the family. Peace, prosperity and positive attitudes prevailed in those times. I am sure those old plants put out some chemicals in the air that are today in serious question but the Biomass plant in no way compares to them. It is like comparing the exhaust of a diesel truck to a bicycle. The new plant will put no more in the atmosphere than two Tahoes driving around all day in Gulf County. The protestors pulled every trick they could to include saying that the air will harm the lungs of our children and grandchildren when they come to visit. I noticed they said when they visit and that is exactly what our children and grandchildren are doing now and would have to do in the future because there is nothing here to sustain them. Our families are being torn apart by the economy and lack of opportunity to have a future. I am encouraging my children and grandchildren to come and stay as long as possible, I will even take them on a tour at the new Biomass plant when it is built. If they do move, I say farewell and good luck in nding anyplace like this again. You Commissioners for caring about our community and setting an example for other politicians to follow. Good Job!Jim GarthPort St Joe Congratulations to city commissioners

Some sharks, its true, are very good to eat and some of us just cant resist the urge to mess with something that cannot only defend itself but actually eat us given the right circumstance. Some nearshore species thrive in U.S. waters, where at least some protection has been around for decades. There are good numbers of bull sharks all over the Gulf Coast, fair populations of great hammerheads lots of blacktips the favorite target of recreational shermen and one of the better-tasting sharks along with the mako, which is an offshore species and rare. Catching sharks generally is a pretty simple operation. You put out a large, bloody chunk of an oily sh like bonito, add a bit of chum in the form of chopped threadns or menhaden and wait until the current takes the scent to any nearby sharks. When they smell food, they trace the scent back to the source, sometimes from hundreds of yards away. Obviously, you dont want to be shark shing on the sugar-sand beaches of Panhandle tourism centers, even though there are quite a few sharks cruising these waters from spring through late fall. Better is to head for the jetties around the major passes, if youre shorebound, or maybe out to a nearshore reef if you have a boat. Where baitsh gather, youll nd sharks with them. Of course, in the case of larger sharks, larger sh qualify as bait. Great hammerheads, which reach 14 to 15 feet with some frequency, consider nothing tastier than a 6-foot-long tarpon. At Boca Grande during the height of the tarpon season there from mid-May through June, its common for these monsters to inhale several hooked tarpon every day, and some giant bull sharks also get in on the feast. Bulls are also a common species around Panhandle inlets and in the lower bays, as well as along the beaches. Theyre easily identied by the blunt snout and chunky-looking body. They are among the most aggressive of sharks and are the species most commonly identied in attacks on humans. Smaller sharks, such as blacktips, often follow the mullet migrations; when these sh swarm out of the passes with the rst big cold fronts, the sharks come from every direction to get in on the feed. Blacktips average 40 to 50 pounds but sometimes exceed 100 pounds. They are jumpers, and they are good to eat a good target for any beginning shark sher. Blacktips are easily distinguished by the black tips on the dorsal n. The smallest sharks youre likely to see are bonnet sharks, which never reach lengths much more than 3 feet and weights of 10 to 15 pounds. These look somewhat like a hammerhead, but with less extended lobes on the head. Theyre often seen on the ats where redsh and trout cruise, and they can be caught on shrimp or a piece of cut sh with ease. The mako is one of the most awesome sharks found in the Gulf of Mexico; its usually found at the edge of the continental shelf, where it feeds on tuna and swordsh. Makos have a horric set of jaws; they look like a smaller version of the great white, which is a real rarity in the Gulf because its preference for chilly water. Makos reach more than 10 feet long and are spectacular jumpers, reportedly leaping more than 10 feet above the water at times when hooked. Theyre not much of a danger to humans because theyre so rarely found inshore. Catching one is a rare accident, usually accomplished by swordsh or marlin anglers slow-trolling big live baits. All the larger sharks are real sluggers, and whipping one more than 200 pounds is likely to be all the sharking youll want for a while; it sometimes takes a tag-team of anglers to bring the larger ones to the boat.SHARK TACKLEThough shing for offshore sharks takes huge reels and heavy lines testing 80 pounds or more, most smaller editions found near shore can be caught on standard grouper tackle; an 8-foot rod, 4/0 reel and 40to 60-pound test will readily whip sharks to 150 pounds. Microber line is a great choice for sharking because it gives much more leverage to wear them down; mono stretches and makes the ght harder on sher as well as sh. Large shark or small, youll need a wire leader as long as the shark if you really want to get one in for a photo otherwise, the rough hide of the creature likely will wear through your line. Size 10 or heavier wire is a must. Its also wise to use circle hooks, typically in sizes 10/0 and larger, which set themselves, and which also make it possible to release the shark with minimal damage because the hook likely will set in the jaw rather than being swallowed.HANDLING SHARKSSharks have a exible spine that allows them to turn around and bite objects near their own tail including your hand if you are careless. Many sharks continue to ght once they are boated, snapping at anything that comes within reach its probable more people have been bitten by sharks out of the water than in. The safe way to grip small sharks for dehooking is to grab them rmly just behind the head. This keeps both them and you safe long enough for you to use a dehooking tool to get the hook clear. For larger sharks, hook removal is not a safe option on most; its best to clip the leader at the hook and release the sh; the hook will soon wear a hole and fall out. Though the hook in the jaw is surely a bother to a shark, its probably not a huge annoyance; commercial shark shermen often catch them with dozens of stingray barbs imbedded in jaw, mouth and throat. Last but not least, just remember the line in Jaws where they decide they must have a bigger boat; big sharks readily take out their anger on the boats of shermen who hook them, and if you are out there in a 10-foot jonboat, it might not end well for you. Mark ARK GOreRE | Special to Florida FreedomBull sharks are one of the more common inshore sharks and one of the most aggressive most of the rare shark attacks on humans in U.S. waters come from this species, which sometimes prowls far into large bays and even will up coastal rivers. Below, a hooked sh like this amberjack are a favorite target of sharks, particularly around deep-water reefs. The largest sharks, including great hammerheads that exceed 15 feet long, can take most of a 100-pound tarpon in a single gulp.Some shermen just cant wait to bite into a sharkFrank RANK Sargeant ARGEANT | Special to Florida Freedom FreshwaterGag grouper are being found and caught in all depths of water from 65 to 200 feet. Leave the docks early for the best bite, and make sure you have plenty of live bait. Big AJs are on the Bridge spans and around the B sites and can be caught on live bait and diamond jigs. Inshore OffshoreOctober is off to a good start as the I.C.W. canal here in St. Joe is holding great trout and red sh. Try shing the T for good action on live bait or grubs and jigs. Big mullet are easily found in St. Joe Bay behind Blacks Island and around Fire Tower area. Anglers in Gulf County are enjoying the ne shing lately. Rivers, creeks and streams are holding good sh throughout the county. Lots of good-sized sheepshead are being caught around Howard Creek and in the big river.

PORT ST. JOE WEWAHITCHKA SP O RTs S www.starfl.com ASection Thursday, October 6, 2011 Page 7By Jason ShootFlorida Freedom Newspapers BONIFAY Kodi Russ wants his hands on the football, but even Holmes Countys standout running back has his limits. Russ has welcomed Jacky Miles insertion into the Blue Devils backeld, and the two athletes com bined for ve touchdowns in a 41-0 victory over Port St. Joe in a non-district football game Friday night at Memorial Field. Holmes County, which plays in District 3-1A, re mained undefeated at 5-0 overall. A District 4-1A team, Port St. Joe fell to 1-3. We wanted this one because they took us out in basketball last year, Russ said. Russ carried the ball 12 times for 92 yards, and he scored all three of his touchdowns in the rst quarter to help the secondranked Blue Devils build a 20-0 lead through the rst 12 minutes. He reeled off a 30-yard run on the second play from scrimmage for one touchdown and added a pair of 1-yard plunges. Miles, a junior who transferred from Graceville and is playing in his rst season for Holmes County, has added depth and a change of pace to Russ nimble antics with the football. Russ is still the primary ball carrier, but Miles has the speed around the edge to contrib ute in the running game. Miles squirted through the Tiger Sharks defense on a 9-yard run for a 27-0 lead at halftime. In the third quarter, Miles capped a nine-play, 84-yard drive with a 7-yard touchdown run around the left end for a 34-point margin. He brings a good asset to the team, Russ said of Miles. Hes quick, he has good hands and he has real good speed. He can turn nothing into something. Blue Devil quarterback Ethan Russ excelled while running his teams balanced offense. He complet ed 13 of 16 passes for 167 yards and added another 43 yards on ve carries. He has the ability to heave the ball down the eld, but it was his touch with his passes that was worthy of commendation. Backup running back Jonathan Williams broke loose on a 66-yard touch down romp in the fourth quarter to provide the nal margin and implement the use of a running clock. Holmes County domi nated the rst half on both sides of the ball. The Blue Devils held Port St. Joe to 53 yards and three rst downs through two quarters. Holmes County compiled 215 yards and 11 rst downs over the same span.

Both the boys and girls nished rst on Sept. 20 when the teams traveled to Graceville. Sophomore Jakob Bidwell led the Gator boys, nishing second overall, followed by Gauge Combs, Michael Bryan, Tyler Sarmiento, Shaquille Scott, Josh Epps, and Mi cah Lister. The girls team was paced by senior Doni Lanier, who was the top individual nisher. She was followed to the tape by McKenna Waters, Brittany Grifn, Scout Flowers, Tara Walding and Danielle Harris.

Doni Lanier again nished rst overall in the girls race, followed by Brittany Grifn, Scout Flowers, Hannah Johnson and Mileena Shirah. By Tim CroftStar News Editor During a game in which the teams com bined for 105 points and more than 800 offensive yards, the host Gator de fense provided the deci sive swing. Wewahitchka (3-2) won its third-straight game after its defense came up with three critical stops early in the fourth quarter as the Gators overcame a 41-22 halftime decit by scoring the nal 21 points for a wildly entertaining 57-48 win over Franklin County. On successive series in the early minutes of the nal period, the Ga tors twice stopped the Seahawks (2-4) on downs, recovered a fumble and converted each defen sive stand into points, to wipe out a 48-36 Franklin County lead over the nal 11 minutes. Theryl Brown led the way, rushing for 255 yards and four touchdowns on just 21 touches, returning a kickoff 66 yards to set up another touchdown and icing the game with a 5 yard touchdown dash, and two-point conversion with 1:49 left. What can you say after a game like that? wondered Wewahitchka coach Dennis Kizziah. We just played better in the second half. We knew they probably couldnt stop us and I think we kind of wore them out at the end there. I think you could see that. But this was all by the kids. These guys just battle. There is no quit in this team. The Seahawks provid ed plenty of reason to quit throughout the track meet that was the rst half. Behind the running of Dwayne Griggs (19 carries for 186 yards and three touchdowns) and Brenden Walden (13 carries for 130 yards and a touchdown), the Seahawks came out blazing and answered ev ery salvo from the Gators. Wewahitchka helped dig their early hole on special teams. The Ga tors twice fumbled away kickoffs; both turnovers converted into Franklin County points, and Griggs responded to a Justin Flowers, rst quarter touchdown by taking the ensuing kickoff 81 yards for a score. The Seahawks were up 28-14 with 5:02 still re maining in the rst period after an opening seven minutes that included a kickoff return for touch down, another 66 yards to set up a touchdown, two fumbled kickoffs, four rushing touchdowns and one passing. Griggs ran 8 and 9 yards for touchdowns the rst answered immediately by a 64-yard touchdown scamper by Brown and the second by Browns long kickoff return which set up Flowers score. After Griggs returned the ensuing kick for a touchdown, Wewahitchka fumbled away a second kickoff and Franklin Coun tys Christopher Granger made it count with a 23yard touchdown reception of a Zachary Armistead pass. Armistead hit a touch down pass early in the second period from 9 yards and Flowers re sponded on the ensuing drive when he found Jayln Addison (63 rushing yards and two touchdowns) in stride along the left side line on fourth-and-12 from the Franklin 36 to make it 35-22. But Walden rumbled down the left sideline slipping away from a pile of would-be tacklers for a 47-yard score just before the half ended 4122 at intermission. The third period seemed more of the same as Brown sprinted 33 yards for a touchdown in the early minutes only to have Griggs answer with a 65-yard touchdown dash through the right side of the Gator defense. But the Seahawks would not nd the end zone again and the Gator defense turned the tide in the early minutes of the fourth quarter, the Gators scoring four unanswered touchdowns to keep their winning streak alive. This one is tough to swallow, said Franklin County coach Josh Wright. The difference was we could not stop what they did and they got some stops on what we did. I am not going to blame the kids. This is the responsibility of the coach es to put them in a position to win and we did not do that.

Star Staff Report Gene Rafeld Football teams had their rst games of the season, that counts Tuesday evening. The Port St. Joe teams came away with three wins over the Wewahitchka Warriors. For the 7-8 year old Dolphins and 9-10 year old Jaguars, the games turned into easy wins, 30-0 for the Dolphins and 40-0 for the Jaguars. Fans that stayed for the last game, however, were treated to a battle. The Buccaneers won their game in double overtime. The game was dominated by hard-nosed defense. The rst half ended with the Bucs leading 6-0, the lone score coming from Jacob Renfro who scooped up a Wewahitchka fumble and rumbled 20 yards for a touchdown. With a little over three minutes left in the game the Warriors clawed down the eld, moving from their 35 to the Port St. Joe 1 with 2.8 seconds left. A quarterback sneak with time running out tied the game and sent it into over time when the extra point conversion failed. According to Big Bend League rules, the rst overtime gives each team the ball at the 10 yard line with four downs to score. Neither team scored. PSJ then got the ball at the 50 yard line for four downs and gained 12 yards. If the Warriors could get the ball back over the 50 with their four downs they would win. Their effort fell a yard short and the Buc caneers won their rst regular season game. The youngest team, the Dolphins, played a solid game. Brenon Foxworth had two touchdowns while gaining 140 yards overall. Josh Farmer gained 100 yards rushing, and scored the nal touchdown on a 43-yard blast up the middle. Max Cargill and Hayden Byrd excelled of fensively and defensively, Cargill scoring the third touchdown. The Jaguars scored on their rst ve possessions. Cameron Harmon went 60 yards for the rst touch down and Kendre Gant scored on a 72-yard sprint. Harmon scored from the 1st, after a Jacob Kennedy reception of a Josh Butts pass ended just short of the goal line. On the next Jag possession, Roman Harrison scored on a 31yard burst up the middle. Davien Welch electried the crowd with his speed and determination on the nal touchdown, going 60 yards. The Jaguar defense did not give up a rst down while holding the Warriors to minus yardage for the game. By Tim CroftStar News Editor For the third year in a row the Port St. Joe High School volleyball team will be digging pink. This years Dig Pink event, which promotes vol leyball along with breast cancer awareness, will be held during the nal regu lar season game, Oct. 20, against county rival Wewahi tchka in the R. Marion Craig Coliseum. That night is also Senior Night for the Lady Tiger Sharks. The junior varsity match begins at 6 p.m. ET and the varsity at 7 p.m. ET. And everyone is encour aged to wear pink, which in the past two years has helped transform The Dome into something re sembling a nursery for an infant girl. It is a cool event for us because we get to wear everything that we have to wear that is pink, said Raney Besore of the Lady Tiger Sharks. The boys like it to because they can wear pink. It is fun. Its kind of a cool event in that we are playing for fun and we are raising money for breast cancer. (Those who battle the disease) are strong, so we have to be strong. The Dig Pink event is held as part of a national cam paign by the Side-Out Foun dation, which is committed to the unication of volley ball and its alliance with the movement for breast cancer awareness and education. Founded seven years ago, the Side-Out Foundation also hosts clinics and camps with the aim of supporting breast cancer awareness and rais ing funds for clinical trials. We raised $1,200 two years ago the rst year we did it, $1,000 last year and our goal for this year is $1,200, said Port St. Joe coach Wayne Taylor. For a little school and a small com munity, given everything else we ask of them, that will be pretty good. This has become a pret ty big deal with college and high schools. Taylor said the idea came after his wifes sister battled breast cancer several years ago. Her cancer is now in re mission, but in his research at the time Taylor came across the Side-Out Founda tion right after it had been created. His team took to the idea immediately. Everyone knows some one who has been impacted by breast cancer, said Jac lyn Kerigan of the Lady Ti ger Sharks. It could effect us, it could effect our loved ones. After talking to team members, most have a personal story to tell about breast cancer. Oneika Lockley said she will be playing for her grand mother who has breast can cer. Ill play that night the hardest I have played all season, Lockley said. Nicole Spilde said shell be playing for Gina Meisner, a friend of the family who has successfully beaten the disease. It hits home, Spilde said. For Besore it is Stephanie Howze, a young woman who has already had a bout with breast cancer. She is my age, Besore said. Ill be playing for her and remembering her when I am out there. But really, because we are girls, it could be one of us. All proceeds from the Dig Pink night, after costs, will go toward the Side-Out Foundation, a non-prot based in Washington, D.C. Event t-shirts are on sale for $15.

Although both elementary schools have provided a breakfast program for years, this is new for the high schools. Most everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Many students skip breakfast for such reasons as lack of time, not feeling hungry, etc. What some students tend to ignore is that their bodies have been 10 hours without food and a source of nutrients to provide energy. Many students who do not eat breakfast experience headaches, sleepiness, stomach pains, and muscle fatigue. Students who do eat breakfast not only absorb nutrients and vitamins the body needs, but also demonstrate better concentration during their classes. Breakfast is served Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. local time for all students. The following are prices for both, the breakfast and lunch programs:PreK-Hailyn Levins, Kindergarten-Riley Byrd, 1st-Alyson Sheppard, 2nd-Ace Cannon, 3rd-Brayden Register, 4th-Riley Kerigan, 5th-ChanteCummings, 6thCheyenne Crum.

Supposedly, when someone is not preaching this portion of scripture they are not preaching THE GOSPEL. Am I the only one who thinks it strange, that this portion of scripture, contains nothing about the message of Jesus, or the teachings of Jesus, or the commandments of Jesus? Have we put this so-called gospel of Paul ahead of the message of Jesus? The other day, I was watching a preacher on Christian TV, who was talking about water baptism. What he said about water baptism was biblical that it was a picture of what had happened to an individual, and did nothing spiritually for that individual. They are immersed, under the water, symbolizing the death and burial of the old nature, and then are allowed to arise, to walk in the newness of life, in the new heart and spirit that God had given them. I often wonder, of those who have submitted to water baptism by immersion, how many have really given up their lives of pursuing pleasure, and are living for God? An examination, of the kind of lives they are living, does not bring a good answer. The show supposedly took place at the Jordan River, and was beautifully done. It looked very religious, however, the remainder of the teaching, was not biblical. It was based upon a few of the writings of the Apostle Paul, and did not take the teaching of Jesus and His message into account. If your beliefs are only based upon what you hear in church, or hear on the radio, or see on TV, you wont understand what I am saying. The more I read my Bible, the more I am troubled by what I am seeing and hearing from those around me, that are supposedly Christians. I had a short conversation in a local fast food restaurant the other day with a retired preacher whom I have grown to like and highly respect. He had a pastorate in the local area for many years. We discussed the disgusting way, in which many in the area are putting their desire for money ahead of decency and responsible living. If we didnt utter words of warning to those who would put all of us in danger, so that a few can indulge in their addictions, we would be in trouble when we are judged by God. Any claim to Christianity by these people is bogus. At the lake of re, they will learn that we were right, and like the rich man in Luke 16:19-31, there will be no escape and they will have no way to warn their friends, with whom they have partied with on earth. Are you listening commissioners? Your judgment is waiting. Questions or comments are invited. Send to us at one of the addresses below: Are you concerned about your eternal destiny? At the Mexico Beach Christian Worship Center, you get vital teachings from a trustworthy Bible, every Sunday morning. We dont pass an offering plate, pressure you to give money, or pressure you to join. We believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and we believe that Jesus was God in human esh. Check us out this Sunday! For the spring and summer seasons, our services begin, with a time of greeting and fellowship, at 9:45 a.m. CT on Sunday. Our worship begins at 10 a.m. For those interested, we have midweek ministry, helping people on an individual basis. Inquire for more information. Come early on Sunday morning so that you can meet us informally, and join in the praise and worship music led by TJ. On Sunday morning we worship at the Mexico Beach Civic Center on 105 N. 31st Street. The Civic Center is located behind the Beach Walk Gift Shop, behind Parker Realty, just off Route 98, in the western end of Mexico Beach. Look for the white building with the dark green roof.

I never wanted memories, I only wanted you. A million times I cried, if love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still. In my heart you hold a place, no one else could ll. If tears could build a stairway, and heartache make a lane, Id walk the path to heaven and bring you back again. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again. Happy Birthday Baby girl! Momma, Daddy and everyone loves and misses you dearly!

Hell guide our every footstep, If we read His Word and heed. Jesus gave us a choice, When He went to the cross. Accept His love or suffer the loss. Ive had a few problems down through the years, Had some heartaches, and shed a few tears. Most of these problems were brought on by greed. I wanted to do things my way, I just wouldnt heed. He loved me all this time, It took me a while to see. No matter what I did, He still provided for me. Im not a nished product yet, Hes still working on me. But I thank God every day, That Im not what I used to be. Billy Johnson The Christian COnsNSCIEnNCE Faith brBRIEfsFS
