Its a blank canvas right now, said Port Authority execu tive director Tommy Pitts. Were talking about an economic devel opment project that will create many jobs in our area. Ananth Prasad, secretary for the Florida Department of Transportation, Rep. Marti Coley (R-Marianna), local government ofcials and members of the Port Authority and its advisory team were among those who met to discuss the potential of the last undeveloped deepwater port in Florida. Port St. Joe is home to one of just 14 deepwater ports in the state. The port has constructed a barge terminal bulkhead along the Intracoastal Canal and is working in partnership with the St. Joe Company on plans to de velop a parcel and the adjacent former paper mill site as an ac cess point for larger ships. The Port Advisory Team, in partnership with Atkins Engi neering and J.D. Sanchez Con sulting, presented a strategic growth plan and a capital im provement nancing plan for port development during the Oct. 12 meeting, which laid out potential funding options, strategic devel opment objectives, basic needs and key facts about the port. The purpose of the project is to research the possibility of port growth and research the mar ket, said a representative from Atkins Engineering. Ofcials tour Port of Port St. Joe site By Tim Croft Star News Editor They were, as one observer noted, the redshirt freshmen to the area. The third annual Semper Fi Beach Blast brought more than 30 women from out of town to visit the area for the rst time and two dozen or so more who either live in Gulf County or attended the Beach Blast the past two years for a weekend of fun, laughter, a few tears and plenty of activity. The Semper Fi Sisters, clad in their red shirts, were everywhere over the weekend. Some participated in the Sheriffs Ofce bass shing tournament, others enjoyed the various locales where the songwriters, in for the Blast on the Bay Songwriters Festival, were playing and singing. They partied, they gabbed and, in general, got away for a spell from the everyday tensions of having a loved one in the military. They had a really good time, said event organizer Brenda Garth. Everything went so well. The community was fantastic. The big event of the big event, however, was Saturdays packing party at the Centennial Building. After a serenade from several of the songwriters in town, the group went to work and turned the inside of the Centennial Building into an assembly line spitting out care packages for troops. By afternoons end, the count of care boxes exceeded 700, more than double last year. Going out with a bang T IM C R O FT | The Star The assembly line begins; the sisters packed more than 700 care packages for troops, double last years total. Top included in each care package were photos of local folks thanking the troops overseas such as this one of the Port St. Joe High School cheerleaders saying thanks after a recent football game. Left each care package sent to a military member overseas carried this gnome recognizing this years Beach Blast. The hope is to get back multiple photos from soldiers of the gnome at various outposts in Afghanistan and Iraq. By Tim Croft Star News Editor The three convicted suspects who robbed the Vision Bank in Port St. Joe on Dec. 20, 2010 were sentenced in sep arate hearings this past week. Jaylin Pittman, identied by his co-defendants as the rst one in the bank and having red a gun, pled no con test to armed robbery and was sentenced Oct. 13 to 17 years in prison with cred it for 296 days time served. He was also ned $855 in court costs and nes. The rst 10 years of Pitt mans sentence are a manda tory minimum sentence for the rst degree felony of robbery with a re arm. Pittman must serve at least 85 percent of the nal seven years un der sentencing guidelines. Ricardo Clemmons, 21, pled no contest to a charge of being a princi pal to armed robbery, was adjudicat ed guilty and under a plea arrange ment, was sentenced to six years in prison with credit for 296 days time served, plus court costs and nes of $855. Clemmons plea arrangement, said State Attorney Tim Register, was based on the fact he was the lookout man and never entered the bank. Vision Bank robbers sentenced V A LERIE G A RM AN | The Star The Ports primary, short-term objective is to develop a $13.4 million shallow-water barge site along the Gulf County Canal seen here. By Valerie Garman Star Staff Writer The room was full of ordinary heroes dressed in purple. Amidst posters of Spiderman, Superman and purple balloons were cancer survivors and caregivers, ready to pledge time and money to help in the ght against cancer. The Gulf County Relay for Life organizers held a kickoff party Oct. 11 at Boondocks restaurant to begin discussing plans for the 2012 Relay, which will be held April 27 at Port St. Joe High School. Event Chair Kim Kurnitsky revealed the theme for the 2012 relay as Ordinary Heroes, an ode to all the superheroes in the community who have battled against cancer. I think its very appropriate, Kurnitsky said. Thats what you guys are, ordinary heroes. Everybody in this room, you are all heroes. The committee set a goal to raise $62,000 for the American Cancer Society at the 2012 relay. The ACS uses the money to fund cancer research, education, advocacy programs and special services for patients like providing wigs, treatment transportation and lodging. Cancer survivor Amy Sasnett shared her struggle with Hodgkins lymphoma, a cancer that attacks the lymph nodes. She underwent eight chemotherapy sessions at the University of Alabama in Birmingham.

Local A2 | The Star Thursday, October 20, 2011 719 Hwy 98, Mexico Beach (850) 648-8207 OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 11AM-CLOSE $500 TOTAL IN CASH PRIZES PLUS MORE HALLOWEEN PARTY H ERITA G E B AN D F RI D AY OCT 28 COSTUME CONTEST D J F RI D AY & SATUR D AY Deshaun Wineld, 20, of Apalachicola, was sen tenced Tuesday to 10 years in jail. He was identified as be ing the second man in the bank and having taken the weapon from Pittman. He also pled no contest to armed robbery and was adjudicated guilty. Pittman originally pleaded not guilty and went to trial Sept. 20. However, with Clem mons and Winfield pre pared to testify against him at trial, Pittman changed his plea mid-trial to no contest. During last Thursdays sentencing hearing before Circuit Court Judge Shon na Young Gay, a series of relatives and friends of Pittman asked for mercy, noting that Pittman had no criminal record, was running with the wrong crowd and made a hor rible decision. I have to believe Jay lin can be rehabilitated, said his uncle Amos Pit tman Jr. I know what he did was wrong. I am just asking the court to have mercy on Jaylin and his family. Pittman acknowledged his mistakes and stated a desire to help keep other children from making the same decisions he did. I want to help people not make the same mis take I made, Pittman told the judge. Be your own self, dont be a follower; be a leader. Its not a joke, it is real. When you pick up a gun the consequences, the consequences are dire. Register argued that Pittman deserved signifi cantly more prison time than his co-defendants. Nancy Neal, the bank employee Pittman grabbed and pushed into the bank as she arrived for work, described the fear she felt as she heard a gun go off behind her Register ac knowledged the gunshot, which hit a wall outside the bank, was likely ac cidental and Pittman threatening her with her life, saying, Someone is going to die today. I (now) know the fear and trembling that phrase brings, Neal said. In the end, it was a conscious de cision by them to commit a crime, a bank robbery. I see two robberies taking place, one of the bank, for not a lot of mon ey, and the second (the de fendants) futures. Neal said her only thoughts during the min utes of the ordeal were how to ensure the safety of her co-workers and herself. While Neal escaped se rious harm, she was badly bruised on both arms by the rough treatment from being pushed in the bank. Register said Pittmans actions were senseless, il legal and planned-out, and he deserved a sentence of at least 20-25 years. Every time I think of this case my blood boils, Register said. This is in excusable. It wasnt just a stupid decision, it was evil and illegal. He pointed a loaded firearm at an inno cent woman just going to work and told her she had to die. Gay denied a defense motion to consider sen tencing Pittman as a youthful offender the defense argued for sen tencing as a youthful of fender given Pittman was 18 at the time of the inci dent and also handed down a sentence beyond the 61 months, with 12 years probation, recom mended under a pre-sen tencing report. According to law en forcement reports, the men entered the bank via a back door pushing Neal in as she prepared to open the back door. A neighbor behind the bank called 911 around 8:20 a.m. ET saying the bank was being robbed and shots had been fired. Units from the Port St. Joe Police Department, Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Gulf County Sheriffs Of fice responded. The three men made off with roughly $200 in coins. All three were appre hended within blocks of the bank and in custody within 21 minutes. ROBBERS from page A1SPECIAL TO T HE STAR Left Ricardo Clemmons received six years under a plea agreement.

LANGSTON DRIVE DEDICATION ON TUESDAY Star Staff Report The City of Port St. Joe invites the public to the dedication of David B. Langston Drive at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 25. Langston Drive is located between Williams Avenue and Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. The dedication ceremony will take place at the curve nearest MLK Drive. Star Staff Report According to musician and songwriter Walt Aldridge, you havent lived until youve heard Billy Ray Cyruss Achy Breaky Heart performed by a traditional German oompah band. Aldridge and 19 other Nashville songwriters shared stories and songs this weekend, as venues throughout Port St. Joe, Mexico Beach and Indian Pass packed to the brim with country music acionados for the Third Annual Blast on the Bay Songwriters Festival. This year marked the biggest festival yet, with 20 songwriters playing in seven different venues along the Forgotten Coast. The festival kicked off Thursday night with a beach bonre in Indian Pass, where songwriters played informal, acoustic sets under a harvest moon. Hundreds came out to enjoy the bonre, which was complete with a spicy, low country boil of shrimp, potatoes, corn and sausage. The artists played in rounds Friday and Saturday night at venues like the Thirsty Goat, Provisions, The Haughty Heron, Mango Marleys and Toucans. A group also sang at the Semper Fi Sisters care packing party for the troops on Saturday at the Centennial Building. The festival wrapped up Sunday with an afternoon of picking and storytelling at the Indian Pass Raw Bar. The songwriters were met with oods of laughter and applause for comedic songs like Steve Leslies Whats a nice place like you doing on a girl like that? (A question posed to a rough looking girls Texas tattoo), another songwriters ode to Spam, and Bruce Wallaces Damn you Bubba.

The plans highest priority and primary short-term objective is the development of an operational shal low-water barge site in the Gulf County Canal, parallel to Industrial Road. The total cost is estimated to be $13.4 mil lion, and the Port Authority hopes the project can be completed within the rst three years of the ve-year capital improvement program. The second objective is a series of longer-term deepwater projects in St. Joseph Bay that will occur beyond the ve-year period with an estimated cost of $53.8 million. Another long-term objective is to provide opportunities for properties along the Gulf County Canal, extend ing to the Gulf Intracoastal Water way and inland from Industrial Road to Highway 71, to be used for jobgenerating maritime-related uses. The document cited the 2014 Pan ama Canal expansion as a huge pros pect for port development because the Port of Port St. Joe would be closer to the Panama Canal than the Port of Mi ami. The document also laid out poten tial federal and state funding options, but Prasad said the project needs to fo cus on nding private sector partners for further funding. Those days of if you build it, they will come are gone, said Prasad, who acted as a liaison for Gov. Rick Scott during the meeting. Government is not how were going to create jobs. What we want the Port to do is work with the St. Joe Company and local leaders to get those things lined up. The private sectors are whats going to create jobs. Port development was one of the key elements of the governors eco nomic development/job creation initia tive announced Wednesday. Gov. Scott is very focused on ports and infrastructure, Prasad said. He is very much committed and is going to support this 150 percent. Prasad said Scott wants all Florida ports to grow, so the Port of Port St. Joe should be designed to work in partner ship with other Florida ports. What we want to do is steal from Mobile, Charleston and Savannah, Prasad said. Florida is going to win. Were not going to lose to Georgia or Alabama. Prasad said the next step is to mar ket the port to potential private inves tors, who will ultimately drive the bulk of the funding for port development. He said timing is essential, and the gover nor will provide legislative support to ensure the project moves quickly. The window is short, Prasad said. Everybody is kind of jockeying for this position. The governor is very focused on it. Were going to be very nimble and move on a dime and do whatever it takes. He said the Port Authority must now focus on putting the puzzle pieces together, and the state will provide the missing piece if needed. The foundation is here, said Prasad, who noted the ports inherit advantages like excellent connectivity to the highway, rail connections and natural depth will aid in the investment and development process. Pitts presented diagrams outlining the potential market reach and eco nomic impacts of the port, which could span a 500 mile radius. We have a very large population in our marketplace, Pitts said. Its very much a regional impact. Were not just talking about Port St. Joe. Pitts said development of the port will reach much farther than Port St. Joe, providing foundation for regional economic growth in struggling sur rounding counties like Holmes, Frank lin, Liberty, Calhoun and Gadsden. Pitts said port development also brings potential for new manufactur ers in the area, who will benet from being near a transport center. He said he has received support letters from area counties and inquiries and letters of intent from various companies. Right now were working towards closing some deals, Pitts said. Were going to continue our discussions about various potential tenants. Gulf County Chamber Director Barry Sellers said in his 20 years in economic development the future port site has the most potential he has ever seen. He said the strategic growth and capital improvement nancing plan brochure sells itself. No other Port Miami, Jackson ville, Tampa, can say they have this much opportunity for growth, said Patrick Jones, vice chairman of the Port Authority Board. We have our ba sic infrastructure. Its just sitting there waiting for us to use. Jones said the creation of the Port Advisory Team gave the project an in stant, credible network and they intend to use it in any way possible, while also welcoming outside ideas. This day is a vision and its a dream, said Johanna White, chair woman of the Port Authority Board. In many, many counties the economic times have hit hard, very, very hard. Many people are moving away, losing their homes. We thought the time is now (to push forward on port develop ment). Star News Editor Tim Croft con tributed to this report. supporters, because with help from the American Cancer Society, she stayed at their Hope Lodge at UAB free of charge. It gives someone like me the chance to go somewhere like UAB and get treatment, Sasnett said. I also got to stay there with fellow cancer survivors. I could always talk to someone. Sponsorship chair Jera Horton led a glow stick luminary ceremony at the kickoff, a stand-in for the events candlelit ceremony, in recognition of loved ones who lost the ght against cancer. You were and always will be a part of us, Horton said. We light these candles as a continued commitment to the ght. Last year (the luminary ceremony) just really touched my heart. Theres nothing like being onstage and seeing those candles. The committee also honored the 2011 teams that raised the most funds: First United Methodist Church raised $11,056; Port St. Joe Elementary School raised $5,300; the VFW raised $4,394; El Governor Motel raised $4,200; and rounding out the top ve was the Gulf County Sheriffs Department with $3,317.

Thursday, October 20, 2011 Opinion A4 | The Star It was one of those nights. I dont know what caused it. Perhaps it was the leftover Jerk Chicken I had eaten earlier in the day, perhaps it was the movies I had been watching or maybe it was something else. All I know is that it was real, or seemed real scary real. I went to sleep at around 1:30 a.m. and, sometime thereafter, I went to prison. Im unsure if it was a regular prison or POW camp. It had to be one of the two. There were no bars, but there was lots of barbed wire, fences, buildings and other male prisoners or inmates. In the last couple of days, Ive watched The Shawshank Redemption, Cool Hand Luke and Conspiracy Theory. None of those seemed to t quite right; the scenery in my dream was more like The Great Escape or Stalag 17. The rst thing I remember is walking around in a fenced area with lots of white buildings, the dream might have even been in black and white. None of the other prisoners were trying to hurt me or make me eat eggs, so I didnt seem to be Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) or Cool Hand Luke (Paul Newman). We (the prisoners) were just wandering around. It was too real. I didnt have, or need, a copy of Catcher in the Rye, so Conspiracy Theory was out of the question. I knew I would miss Julia Roberts. There were no paints or paper mache and I wasnt molding a fake head like Clint Eastwood did in Escape from Alcatraz. I was just walking around with the other prisoners. Then I thought about the buttery. This could be punishment for THE BUTTERFLY. On a recent family vacation, I got a henna tattoo of a buttery on my right bicep (so I could make it y). It embarrassed my teenage daughters. Papillon had a buttery tattoo, this might be it. No, I didnt have on red and white striped pajamas in my dream, Dustin Hoffman was not there and I wasnt eating bugs. I was not Papillon. On the other side of the barbed wire fences there were other people roaming around and cows. I dont know where the cows came from and I dont know if it was some sort of people and cow prison. It still seemed like a POW camp at this point and I was right in the middle of it. A man on the other side (with the cows) called me over to the fence. I started walking toward the fence, but I was scared very scared. It was all too real. Startled, I woke up and checked the time. It was somewhere between 3 and 4 a.m. I was scared, but I was still interested in my dream and getting out of wherever I was. I went right back to sleep and landed right back at that fence again. The fellow at the fence said Ive got something you can use. I dont remember saying anything. The man handed me a small pair of wire cutters through the fence. I remember looking around to see if any one was looking. I slipped the wire cutters into my pocket. There was a cow looking at me through the barbed wired fence. Then the man gave me another pair of wire cutters, or bolt cutters, that were about twice the size of the rst pair he gave me. Again, I looked around to see if any one was watching. I slipped the second pair into my other pocket. They wouldnt t, so I pulled my shirt tail out to cover them up. I was starting to sweat. Then the fellow pulled these huge bolt cutters out of nowhere and threw them over the fence. The handles seemed to be about three feet long. I remember asking myself, I have a 29 inseam. What am I going to do with these? I picked up the long bolt cutters and faced the buildings inside my prison or prison camp. I stuck the bolt cutters down the back of my pants, one handle in each leg. Then I started walking straight-legged toward the buildings. I remember it feeling like I didnt have knees. A guard approached me; I knew I was done for. The guard didnt say anything; he just let me pass by walking straightlegged like a man on stilts. I woke up again in a cold sweat. It was around 5 a.m. While I was awake, Last week was signicant for those who see the port of Port St. Joe as a regional economic engine. A visit by the Secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation, Ananth Prasad, to Gulf County for a look at the port and the landscape, joined by several state ofcials, in particular state Rep. Marti Coley (RMarianna), could be a change-maker. Having state ofcials on the ground examining potential is a major step for a port that has languished while folks talk endlessly about the potential, like a dog in search of its tail. The Apalachee Regional Planning Council, a regional economic development agency, has identied the Port of Port St. Joe has one of the most signicant, if not the most signicant, keys to job creation and economic development not just in Gulf County but Northwest Florida. That makes it perfect for the governors mantra of seeking job creation. When he visited for the annual Lincoln Day dinner earlier this year, Gov. Rick Scott became animated and passionate about the potential of the ports in Florida, including Gulf County, a view reected in the recent announcement of his economic plan which put considerable emphasis on ports. Further, that district FDOT staff are members of the port advisory team currently crafting a marketing plan and identifying potential customer bases and nancial needs is crucial to the effort of raising the ports prole. However, they say talk is cheap and it is past time that all the talk is transformed into action on several levels. This seems particularly true if, in fact, the port of Port St. Joe is be a player when the expansion of the Panama Canal is nished sometime in 2014, as projected. There is little time to waste in getting federal approval for the U.S. Army Corps to dredge the existing and federally-certied shipping channel off the coast. Local and state ofcials should be pushing the states Congressional delegation in Washington, D.C. to spur the Army Corps to action on the dredging. There is also little time to dally on bulkhead or uplands improvements needed to market as navigable destinations for people and goods the old mill site and the parcel to the north once leased to the port. There is scant time to expend on the nal improvements to be made to bring customers and trafc over the barge terminal already in place along the Intracoastal Waterway. The state might not have much money to pony up for the effort in truth the port has garnered millions in state and federal funds to craft a master plan, create the barge terminal and make other improvements but the countys legislative delegation could take a cue from Coley and ensure that the development of the port of Port St. Joe be a priority in the states grand plan to create jobs. But Prasad also commented about private partners and for this the St. Joe Company is essential. As visioning exercises during much of the previous decade demonstrated, the port is likely not developing without more hands on deck as partners and the partner poised in the best position is St. Joe. The company owns the old mill site and its existing bulkhead that offers a toehold to coastal land that is a key to port expansion by allowing larger-draft ships access to the port facilities. The old mill site is also critical to the development of the parcel to the north. Being accessible to the larger ships, in addition to barge trafc that would benet from the rail and inland waterway access the port currently provides, is critical if the port is ever to create the kind of customer base and in turn jobs that so many envision as its full potential. But one thing the governor makes clear is that government can not create jobs, only the environment for creation, and Prasad was echoing that position when he noted that port development hinges on private partners, in particular The St. Joe Company. And there is a link between community and St. Joe that should make the case for a focus on the port stronger. This is where the company made riches as paper makers for over 60 years. The company took its name from the community from which it grew and while Port St. Joe was a mill town, its heartbeat was the mill whistle telling all when it was time to work, eat or play. Post-mill, St. Joe has both put in to the community donations for parks, school programs, hospitals, to name a few and taken out the move of a three-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 98 to accommodate a development. But as changes on the board and in the company headquarters in Jacksonville, as job cuts have impacted even Floridas largest landowner, focus and strategies changed. One central reason for the upheaval within the company was its value and how much all those acres of land across Northwest Florida and southern Georgia were really worth. So a public/private partnership to develop the port could create several winners. While assisting in that development by providing land and marketing expertise, St. Joe can attach a value to its holdings while increasing the value by putting people back to work and creating for the wide swath of acreage St. Joe owns consumers. The port of Port St. Joe, meanwhile, can turns years of talk into plans to develop the kind of facility capable to handling a wide variety of goods and creating consumers for the wide swath of acreage St. Joe owns. And, just maybe, a community desperate for positive economic news will nally have the economic engine over which so much talk has been expended. Pretty is as pretty does Keyboard KLATTERINGS The great escape Unlocking the ports potential TIM CROFT Star news editor I saw where Sarah Palin dropped out of the presidential race. Good for her! She was too pretty to be president. And Im not comparing her with Haley Mills or Farrah Fawcett here. That beauty thing is relevant as to situation, location, eye of the beholder, whos in the picture with you, how dark it is in the back booth ... Shes better looking than Ross Perot or John McCain. And Id give her the nod over Al Gore and Newt Gingrich. But running for President of the United States is not a beauty contest. Or is it? It wasnt in Abraham Lincolns day. I dont think he could make the cover of GQ. People magazine usually goes for ashy blonds. Sports Illustrated doesnt cover rail splitting, so Abe couldnt have adorned that cover either. And it is rather hard to imagine him debating illegal immigration, world trade agreements or the Wall Street roller coaster on TV today. He would be a publicists nightmare! Weve got a guy here with good walking-around sense, who could acquit himself well in most any situation, honest to a fault, a real viable candidate. But we cant show his face until after the election! Picking a president is kinda like searching for the right person to take to the prom. We all, naturally, want to take the best looking date in town. I was seeking a tall, sleek, handsome beauty queen. No one preferred to be tied to a dog when the band struck up Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White. If you were lucky enough, youd nd a semi-cute girl to walk in on your arm and the evening was all bright and rosy until she opened her mouth! You asked if shed like some punch and she replied, rather too quickly and a little louder than necessary, Aint they got no ice cream! You mercifully turn down her street after the dance of a thousand nightmares has drawn to a close and shes still lling your ear, Did you see Jo Annes dress? I thought them puffed up sleeves were wings! If she had apped about twice I swear she would have lifted off the ground. I cant believe they didnt have no ice cream! You nally make it to the front door and are hurrying your good night when the erstwhile beauty adds the clincher, Next time we go out, hows bout you bring the chewing tobacco! Didnt someone once say its not the wrinkle free skin or the surgically repaired nose..but the content of your character that counts! And please, PLEASE dont think Im saying that since Sarah Palin is attractive she is a ditz. Far from it! I dated a good looking girl once that was smarter, more thoughtful and much more in touch with reality than I was. If shed had just a little money I would have married her in a heartbeat. Im simple saying you cant judge a book by looking at the cover. But here is the real problem. If I take the wrong date to the prom, no harmno foul. Sure, Im uncomfortable for an evening. The guys give me the we cant believe you brought her look, and there is an awkward moment on the front steps when I pretend to tell her what a wonderful time I had. But the evening ends and I can get on with my life. If we select the wrong president, the prom lasts for four years! That is an eternity to be saddled with the wrong date. Can you image the embarrassment and uncomfortable moments that can arise in that length of time! It could warp you for life! Or set you on a road that you dont want to go down. Harry Truman wouldnt win any beauty contest, but I think he was the right man at the right time in our history. The much honored George Washington had such bad teeth he would hardly open his mouth. His hair fell over his collar and he was only an average speech renderer at best. Every picture Ive seen of Thomas Jefferson looks like he was raised on green apples and sour onions. Dwight David Eisenhower helped win a World War and Presidented over one of the greatest decades in our history, but he looked like a quiet, unassuming, ordinary man to me. You wouldnt have picked any of these fellers for Dancing with the Stars. Martin Luther King Jr. was right! It is not about the pigmentation of your skin. Or who your momma and them are, or how much money your Aunt Matilda has accumulated, or how much the boys think of you down at the Lodge.. IT IS about the content of your heart! Heres our mission, if we choose to accept it. Weve got to run down a long list of possibles and select the correct presidential candidate. Dont expect any true insight from ABC, CNN, Jon Stewart and the like. Sometimes your neighbor doesnt know any more than you do! And the candidates dont really help. They put on their best smile for the camera and yell for lower taxes, more jobs, shrinking national debt and a chicken in every pot. Its hard to see their hearts through all the mudwhomp and habberdashing! But weve got to do due diligence on this one. Dont fall for the pretty face or the im-am rhetoric. If we ever needed to get to the heart of the matterit is now! Cause heres the bottom line, guys, I dont want the next president to turn out like my rst date to the prom. We might not could survive four years of that! Respectfully, Kes HUNKER DOWN Kesley Colbert USPS 518-880 Published every Thursday at 135 W.

S HARE Y O U R OPINION S Letters A5 | The Star Thursday, October 20, 2011 I dreaded going back to sleep, but then again, I knew I had to go back in there and try to escape. I had three pairs of wire/bolt cutters. Surely, I would get out. I went back to sleep and back into my dream. I was in a chicken house inside the prison/POW camp. I was trying to hide or bury the three pairs of wire/ bolt cutters. The ground was hard, I was covering the cutters (Im tired of saying wire/bolt) with dirt, hay and every thing else that chickens use. In the meantime, I was late for dinner and I knew I would be missed, so again panic set in. After hiding the cutters, I started running toward the white building where the prisoners ate. They were all coming out. They were nished, I was doomed. Then this big fellow started walking toward me. He had three Tupperware containers of leftovers (I dont know, it was a dream). He was having trouble carrying the three stacked containers and dropped the one on top. It hit the ground and a hamburger patty fell out. He smiled at me with his toothless grin and said, You can have it. His look and smile scared me. It was 7 a.m., the alarm clock radio blared Rod Stewarts Do Y a Think Im Sexy? I dont want to think about that dream anymore. You can nd more stories by BN Heard at www.CranksMyTractor. com. ESCAPE from page A4 Dear Editor: My wife and I knew nothing about a biomass project planned for Port St. Joe until late August, when we received a mailing from the Gulf Citizens for Clean Renewable Energy. At that point, we got involved with this concerned group and tried to alert the citizens of Port St. Joe of the dangers of an incinerator such as this. We were astounded to learn from many citizens that they knew nothing of a biomass incinerator either. We thought we could simply put out signs telling them of the dangers of pollution from an incinerator, but in addition, we had to educate them on what it was and that it was being planned for our city, because of the lack of citywide notication or town hall meetings. A few days later, on Aug. 30, the Planning and Development Review Board (PDRB) members sold out the city of Port St. Joe by approving the development order for the biomass energy incinerator and sending it for a nal decision to the City Commission. There would have been more people at the PDRB public hearing but it was held at 4 p.m. ET when most working people could not attend. It seemed these city leaders did not want many people there that could speak out against the biomass incinerator. The city commissioners tried to fast-track the biomass issue by having it on their agenda for Sept. 6, a week after the PDRB vote so as to not give the opposition time to get the word out. But, that was delayed until Oct. 4. Again, on that date, the city commissioners sold out their own citizens by voting at this public hearing to approve the development order sent from the PDRB. At this particular meeting, due to organized efforts of many concerned individuals and groups, the majority that attended the meeting were opposed to and spoke up against this dirty polluting incinerator. The city commissioners and the PDRB should be ashamed of themselves for already having made up their minds to approve this project, trying to ram it down the throats of the citizens, and pretending to listen to their opinions. This was very evident at the PDRB meeting, where they passed out copies of their Findings, stating under No. 8, The PDRB had all of its positions lled and had a quorum present at the Aug. 30, 2011 meeting, and along with their Recommended Order stating Based on the ndings set forth above, which are incorporated herein by reference, it is the vote of the PDRB that the Application be approved for submittal to the City Commission with a recommendation that the City Commission approve the project. How did they know this before it even happened? This will be remembered at the next election Count on it. We want honest representatives, and who will listen to majority opinions of the citizens. There have been those who are congratulating the city leaders on a job well done. Im glad they are more savvy on poisonous toxins than The American Lung Association and The American Lung Association of Florida who oppose these types of incinerators. In a few short years, when you have a certain type of cancer from dioxins or other toxic chemicals, or have a tough time breathing, or no more edible seafood, or no more tourists wanting to come here, you will think back on this and remember how your city leaders sold you out. But it will be too late. Dave Dorris Port St. Joe Port St. Joe sold out by city leaders Admit it: You probably spend more time comparison shopping online than reviewing your annual benets enrollment materials. Thats a big mistake because the money you could save by choosing the right employee benets package probably far exceeds any savings you could get on a big-screen TV. For example, many people dont sign up for an extremely valuable benet exible spending accounts (FSAs). If your employer offers them, FSAs let you pay for eligible out-of-pocket health care and/or dependent care expenses on a pre-tax basis that is, before federal, state and Social Security taxes are deducted from your paycheck. Using an FSA to cover expenses you would have paid for anyway reduces your taxable income by that amount, which in turn lowers your taxes. Heres how it works: Say you earn $40,000 a year and are in a 25 percent tax bracket. If you contribute $1,000 to the health care FSA and $3,000 for dependent care, your taxable income would be $36,000 about a $1,000 reduction in federal taxes alone, depending on your marital status, withholding deductions and other factors. (Use the calculator at www. dinkytown.net/java/ Payroll125.html to evaluate your situation.) Health Care FSAs let you pay for IRS-allowed medical expenses not covered by medical, dental or vision insurance, including deductibles, copayments, orthodontia, glasses and contact lenses, prescriptions, chiropractic, smoking cessation programs and many more. Check IRS Publication 502 at www.irs.gov for a list of allowable expenses. Dependent Care FSAs let you use pre-tax dollars to pay for expenses related to care for your children, disabled spouse, parent, or other dependent incapable of self-care, including: Licensed day care or adult care facility fees. Services provided in or outside your home (including babysitter, nursery school or summer day camp) so that you and your spouse can work, look for work, or attend school full-time. Beforeand afterschool programs for dependents under age 13. Babysitting by relatives over age 19 who arent your dependent. For some lower-income families, using the federal income tax dependent care tax credit is more advantageous than an FSA so crunch the numbers or ask a tax expert which alternative is better for you. Just be aware that you cannot claim the same expenses under both tax breaks. Your FSA contributions are deducted from paychecks throughout the year. As you incur eligible expenses, you submit receipts to the plan administrator for reimbursement. Also, many employers now offer prepaid health care cards, which let you draw on your account at the point of service to pay for qualied medical expenses, thereby eliminating the need to pay cash up front and submit reimbursement forms. Keep in mind these FSA restrictions: Maximum contribution amounts vary by employer, but commonly are $2,000 to $5,000 a year for health care and $5,000 for dependent care FSAs. Health care and dependent care account contributions are not interchangeable. Estimate planned expenses carefully because you must forfeit unused account balances. Some employers offer a grace period of up to 2 months after the end of the plan year to incur expenses; but thats not mandatory, so review your enrollment materials. You must re-enroll in FSAs each year amounts dont carry over from year to year.

Flexible spending accounts slash your taxes JASON ALDERMAN By Marcus Sturdivant Two weeks ago, the city commissioners of Port St. Joe approved a change to the city ordinance by a vote of 3-2 to allow bars to remain open until 2 a.m. I am very disappointed in the three commissioners voting for the proposal, especially the one I voted for in the last election. I can assure I will not make the same mistake again. I attended the meeting, speaking in opposition to the proposal, as did three others. What struck me as being odd was the glaring absence of most of the pastors in Port St. Joe as well as representatives from their respective congregations. I guess they had other things more important to attend to. After all, who cares if these three city commissioners have set in motion an agenda to fundamentally transform Port St. Joe? Anyone with any common sense surely understands by increasing the number of hours bars can remain open will result in more people becoming intoxicated. Folks, this isnt rocket science. More opportunity to drink is going to result in more drunks, which in turn will result in more accidents and more people being injured and killed. Before becoming a pastor I was also a police ofcer. I have now been retired for over 20 years and I still recall the terrible damage drinking drivers inicted on innocent people. The absolute worst accident I ever worked involved a young man who had been drinking but was not legally drunk. This young man gambled, emboldened by the alcohol he had consumed, and foolishly passed another car on a winding road separated by double yellow lines. He unfortunately struck another car headed in the opposite direction, killing all three passengers. A husband, eight-month pregnant wife and a three-year-old girl lost their lives because someone thought it was cool to drive and drink. Sadly, the woman was an only child. Here parents lost their only daughter, their only granddaughter and soon-to-be grandson. Although this young man had not been in a bar, drinking alcohol still played a contributing part. The message I think it perfectly clear; do not drink and drive. Again, it isnt rocket science to gure out that extended hours of drinking will result in more serious accidents. If someone is injured or killed because of alcohol consumed in a bar in Port St. Joe after midnight, these three city commissioners must bear the responsibility. I would encourage anyone injured by a drunk driver as a result of this new law to seek full restitution from the bar owners and the three city commissioners who voted for the ordiance. The truth is, by voting for this amendment it tells me one of two things; this person either listened to his/her sin nature rather than the Holy Spirit or he/ she does not have the Holy Spirit at all. Given what I know about Gods word, I can assure you the Holy Spirit did not direct anyone to vote for the amendment. The key to living a successful Christian life is to make the right choices. Anytime someone justies his or her actions by starting the conversation with this is what I believe, we can know they are not listening to the Holy Spirit. I want to share something I discovered a long time ago and it is this; just because we believe something to be true does not make it so. The majority may rule; as was the case with this ordinance, however, this does not mean the majority is right. Finally, true Christians in this community need to get involved. If Christians continue to remain silent then Port St. Joe is going to slowly evolve into something none of us like. We have a unique community that in my humble opinion is a great place to raise our children and to grow old gracefully. If we are not protective of what we have it will be taken away and replaced by something far worse than we can imagine. I salute the mayor and Commissioner Buzzett for voting against the amendment. We need to elect three more city commissioners of the same caliber. Above all, we need to listen to the Holy Spirit rather than ourselves. The Holy Spirit will always direct us to the right choices. Marcus Sturdivant is a resident of Port St. Joe. Missing in action: City leaders drop the ball

Thursday, October 20, 2011 Freshwater The mahi-mahi have moved off of the buoy line in Mexico Beach and might be gone for the winter. Good-sized kingsh have invaded St. Joe Bay and can be caught from the Sea wall behind Bluewater Outriggers. Large spinning reels or surf tackle will help you with the long runs the kings will make. Live baits are working great; however, saltwater ies and trolling gear are landing sh here as well. Inshore Offshore Inshore shing in St. Joe Bay has been a mixed bag. Strong numbers of trout are coming in, but most are too small to keep. Fishing the Fire Tower area and Pig Island seem to be producing good numbers with an occasional keeper. The Canal or I.C.W. is still holding a good amount of red sh and trout as well. Low water in the river systems has got the bass all schooled up. Great reports from anglers catching large amounts of bass from Apalachicola to the Dead Lakes this past week. Depot Creek has started to produce crappie in decent numbers this past week along with the usual suspects. SPONSORED BY Special to The Star That little hint of fall teasing us early each morning gives notice that one of area sportsmens most anticipated events is soon to oc cur. The fth annual Panhandle Sportsmans Banquet will be Nov. 3. Port St. Joe Lions Club mem bers are busy working to make this years event not only bigger and better than ever, but a special moment to remember. Attendees will enjoy the historic surroundings of the Port St. Joe Centennial Building while socializ ing with numerous area sportsmen and enjoying appetizers of Apala chicola oysters, boiled shrimp and all the trimmings beginning at 5 p.m. ET. The beverage bar will also open at that time. At 6:30 p.m. the serious eat ing begins. Chef Charlie Nortons famous, no-man-left-hungry rib-eye steaks will take up a good portion of the dinner plate, leaving just enough room for the salad, po tato and rolls. Dont forget to save room for Sisters almost equally famous banana pudding. The real winners at this years banquet, though, will be the bene ciaries of the community service projects supported by the Lions Club. More than $15,000 was raised at 2010s banquet for community service programs in the panhan dle. There have been a few changes made to this years event. First is the location, the Cen tennial Building in Port St. Joe. Because of conicts between hunt ing seasons and the Nov. 3 date, the Box R Ranch was unavailable. The good news is the Centennial Building will remove the threat of inclement weather and provide the backdrop of the historic building, erected in recognition of the sign ing place of Floridas rst Consti tution. Second, live music. Not just any live music, but as long as were being somewhat nostalgic, many of us remember the band South ern Satisfaction from our high school dance era. They have not only aged well, but they are bet ter than ever and agreed to make this years banquet even more special with a one-night reunion tour. Some of the bands past mem bers will blend with the current group and add some special music to the event. At 7:30 p.m., its time to let a few notches out of your belt and get ready for the real excitement. More than $20,000 worth of contributions and prizes will be distributed to the guests through silent auctions, live auctions and rafes. A few of the items offered will include shot guns, hunting ries, pistols, rods and reels and numerous other outdoor products. There will also be items available for women and children. This will mark the second year of the $8,000 cash drawing held during the event. The lucky winner could win up to $8,000 if his ticket is drawn last from the box, but each ticket holder will have a 1 in 25 chance of at least doubling their money. Tickets for the event are $50 in advance and $60 at the door. They can be purchased at Hannon In surance and Ramseys Printing and Ofce Products in Port St. Joe and from any Lions Club member. Additional information or ticket purchases can be made by calling 227-1133, 227-7767 or 527-1338.

Special to The Star Many state parks have a citizen support organization, a group of dedicated volunteers who operate for the direct benet of the state park they support. The Friends of St. Joseph Peninsula State Park Inc. is the CSO for St. Joseph Peninsula State Park and the Constitution Convention Museum State Park. We are driven by our love for the beautiful St. Joseph Peninsula State Park and the history shared at the museum. We work closely with the parks rangers by raising funds for various needs of the parks. We have 118 CSO volunteers who participate in beach clean-ups, building and maintaining board walks and trails, assisting with programs and special events, maintenance of cabins and keeping the park clean. Within the past four years, we have provided funds through the sale of T-shirts, ice and lately, re wood. This past year, our Tour of the Cape was very successful. There was so much support from the local community, which drew interest to our area. We hope to continue the event again next year. It is also our plan to put on a haunted trail event next year, which should be a great event for the family. We host several scout and school events each year. Please come help us support these events and support the park. Anyone interested in supporting the park is encouraged to become a member of our CSO. We have a few meetings each year and an annual celebration for our members each March with a barbecue. A meeting is planned for 7 p.m. ET Oct. 27, and refreshments will be provided. We hope to make plans for the upcoming tour in February and next years Halloween event. Please come to the new re department if interested. If you cannot attend, information for membership is available at the park entrance. Just ask a ranger. For information about Florida state parks, visit www.oridastateparks. org.

PORT ST. JOE WEWAHITCHKA SP O RT S www.starfl.com A Section Thursday, October 20, 2011 Page 7 Star Staff Report The Coed Softball League plays on Thursday nights at 7 p.m. ET at the eld by the Centennial Building. Anyone interested in playing should show up with a glove ready to play. By Tim Croft Star News Editor The preliminaries are over the Wewahitchka season and playoff hopes are up for grabs as Sneads comes to town. The Pirates will face Wewahitchka at 7 p.m. CT on Friday at Gator Field. Sneads enters the game undefeated, along with Ver non, in District 2-1A. Sneads, which has We wahitchka and Vernon re maining, and Vernon, which still has three district games remaining, have district foes to face. For the Gators, 2-1 in dis trict play, it all comes down to Sneads, their nal district game. This is a playoff game for us, maybe the third we have played the way the sched ule has played out, said Wewahitchka coach Dennis Kizziah. We determine our destiny. We win and we are right there in it. If we lose we are probably out of it. In a large part, this is right where Kizziah wanted the Gators more than a month ago after they lost their rst two games, includ ing a loss to Vernon. Kizziah said at the time that if the Gators were to win their next ve, they would ar rive at the Sneads contest in position for a playoff spot. Wewahitchka put the n ishing touches on that vegame winning streak last Friday, as they manhandled Tallahassees John Paul II 47-0 to raise its overall re cord to 5-2. It was a game at a time we needed, Kizziah said of the Gators easiest win of the year. We got some reps in and then were able to take out our starters. And we got to play a lot of the younger guys. We played okay. We went over there and ac complished what we want ed to. Theryl Brown rushed for 135 yards, taking him to more than 1,100 for the season, and one touchdown and also returned two punts for scores to pace Wewahi tchka. Justin Flowers was 4 for 6 passing with a rushing touchdown and a passing touchdown to Chris Myrick, who also grabbed a scoring reception from Rashard Ranie. Sneads will come to Wewahitchka without the top running back in the area based on total yards suited up after Tre Keys, who had rushed for more than 1,200 yards, tore up a knee last Friday against Baker and is done for the season. Thats real big, Kiz ziah said. But we are pre paring for them just like hes going to be there be cause they have some very good running backs. They run a Wing-T and Keys just happens to get the bulk of the carries. But they have some other backs who can hurt you. Kizziah said his team is healthy and prepared to take matters such as a playoff spot into their hands. Weve got to go out and play like we can play, Kiz ziah said. We have to set a tone early and play swarm ing defense. This is it. Our season is on the line. By Tim Croft Star News Editor Condence is higher this week though numbers were lower for the Port St. Joe High Tiger Sharks. The Tiger Sharks (3-3 overall and 1-1 in District 4-1A), won their secondstraight game with a 280 shutout of host Rocky Bayou last week, but will continue to play without two starters for at least two more weeks. We have been playing all year for this part of the schedule because it is the beginning of our playoff, said Port St. Joe coach Vern Barth of a slate that includes two critical home district games after a trip to Tallahassee FAMU this week. If we can just over come the injury bug well be alright. The Tiger Sharks will be without running back/ defensive back Natrone Lee for at least two more weeks after Lee suffered a chest injury two weeks ago against Franklin County. Lineman/linebacker Daniel May, like Lee one of a handful of seniors on the roster, will be lost for two to three more weeks due to an ankle sprain he suf fered in the same win over Franklin County. I need the other guys behind them to give the best effort they possibly can, Barth said. We got them playing time against Rocky Bayou and for the next couple of weeks, at least, they need to step up. The blanking of Rocky Bayou was one of the more complete efforts the Tiger Sharks have offered, Barth said. The long bus ride to Okaloosa County left his team sluggish at the start, but they soon got rolling and were up 28-0 at inter mission, allowing for lib eral substitution. We played well in spurts, Barth said. We got off to a slow start offen sively, but once we gured out what they were doing defensively, the offense started clicking. Defensively, it was another solid effort. And we had the opportunity to play some of the younger guys. Rumello Zaccaro ram bled for 114 yards and two touchdowns to lead Port St. Joe, which also got 73 yards and a touchdown on four carries from Corey North. Arion Ward com pleted the scoring by in tercepting a pitchout and rumbling 13 yards for a touchdown. Port St. Joe faces FAMU High on Friday, a highlyranked Class 2-A team. Barth said FAMU will offer a look at the speed and tal ent the Tiger Sharks need as they prepare for the nal stretch of the season. They have a lot of speed and they are a very good team, Barth said. It will be a good test for these guys, especially with the games we have coming up. Those include district foes West Gadsden and Lib erty County, both at Shark Field, over the next two weeks. Blountstown, which beat Port St. Joe, Liberty County and West Gads den are all undefeated in district play, but West Gadsden begins its dis trict schedule this week and Liberty County and Blountstown end the sea son with their annual ri valry game. Therefore, two wins would all but ensure a playoff berth for the Tiger Sharks and a split, provided the win was against Liberty County, could still leave Port St. Joe in the mix. Star Staff Report St. Joseph Bay Golf Club has announced it will hold a benet golf tourna ment Saturday, Nov. 19, with proceeds supporting the Camp Gordon John ston World War II Mu seum. The club is open to the public and the tourna ment will be a four-player, scramble format, kicking off at 12:30 p.m. ET with a short ceremony to honor Americas veterans and a 1 p.m. shotgun start. A meal and awards ceremony will follow. As part of a full week end event, a reception will be held at 6 p.m. ET on Friday, Nov. 18, with hors doeuvres and beer and wine for a $10 entry fee. A cash bar for spirits will also be available. A silent auction will be held with auction items including framed limited edition mil itary art, unique military collectibles, an FSU hel met and a football signed by Bobby Bowden, an FSU basketball signed by Char lie Ward, and a two-night stay at the Port Inn. Cash prizes for the gulf tournament will include $400 to the rst-place team, $350 for second place and $200 for third. A Hole-inOne challenge will offer a new vehicle or cash prize.

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 dis ease) are strong, so we have to be strong. The Dig Pink event is held as part of a national campaign by the Side-Out Foundation, which is com mitted to the unication of volleyball and its alliance with the movement for breast cancer awareness and education. Founded seven years ago, the Side-Out Foun dation also hosts clinics and camps with the aim of supporting breast can cer awareness and raising 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 community, given every thing else we ask of them, that will be pretty good. This has become a pretty big deal with college and high schools. Taylor said the idea came after his wifes sister battled breast cancer sev eral years ago. Her cancer is now in remission, but in his research at the time Taylor came across the Side-Out Foundation 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 affect us, it could affect our loved ones. And, in talking to team members, that most have a personal story to tell. Oneika Lockley said she will be playing for her grandmother who has breast cancer. Ill play that night the hardest I have played all season, Lockley said. Nicole Spilde said shell be playing for Gina Meis ner, a friend of the family who has successfully beat en the disease. It hits home, Spilde said. 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. Contact Taylor to purchase one via email at wtaylor@gulf.k12. .us and samples can be viewed online at psjhs-gcs.schoolloop.com/. Port St. Joe improved to 12-8 overall with a straightsets win last Thursday at East Gadsden, 25-9, 25-13 and 25-14. Autumn Haynes had six kills while Katie Gardner had 11 service aces and Katie Lacour had eight. Port St. Joe hosted Bay on Wednesday and will nish the season tonight at the Dig-Pink event against Wewahitchka. Star Staff Report Last Saturday morning at Shark Field, two Gene Rafeld football teams put on a show and improved their records to 3-0. The rst team on the eld to play the Sneads Pirates was the defending Big Bend Cham pion Jaguars. For the rst time this year, the Jags offense failed to score on their initial possession. With the Pirate offense on their own 20, Roman Harrison smashed into the backeld and put a vicious hit on the Sneads ball carrier knocking the ball loose. Gene Quinn swallowed it up for Port St. Joe. On the rst play from scrimmage, quarterback Devin Crews rolled to his right and, off a key block by Caleb Butts, went into the end zone untouched. The next possession for the Jags was all Cam eron Harmon. He ran for 35 yards, and two plays later scampered 25 yards for the touchdown. Three minutes before the end of the half, with the Jaguars on their 25, Harmon went 75 yards for his second touchdown of the day. To open the second half, helped by two long pen alties and the initial rst downs the Jaguars have allowed this year, the Pi rates reached the PSJ 15. The defense, determined to keep their season long shutout record intact, came to life driving Sneads back to the 40. The offense took over on downs. In the last period, Harrison went 37 yards for a touchdown to bring the nal score to Jaguars 26-0. Not to be outdone by the older Jaguars, the 7 and 8 year old Dolphins contin ued the PSJ winning day with a 16-0 defeat of a strong Sneads Pirate team. Brenon Foxworth had a 35-yard run to set up a 27-yard touch down by Max Cargill. The offensive play of the day had Josh Farmer run 90 yards to the Pirate 2. On the next play, Cargill took the ball in on a sneak. For the third game in a row, the Dolphin defense held the opposition score less. Aiden Gainer and Hayden Byrd led the de fense with ve tackles each. Farmer had four tackles. Foxworth had three and an interception. Because Sneads does not have an 11 and 12-year-old team, the Buccaneers did not play. The next home games are this Saturday. The Jag uars and Dolphins will face teams from Liberty County. The Bucs are attempting to work out an exhibition game. Dig Pink for breast cancer tonight Gene Rafeld teams remain undefeated Roman Harrison celebrates a touchdown, knocking Sean Yowell to the ground with a chest bump.

COMMUNITY www.starfl.com B Page 1 Section Thursday, October 20, 2011 Special to The Star October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. Last week, Pam Martin and Deb bie Ashbrook, co-directors of the Gulf County Domestic Violence Task Force, spoke at Gulf County High Schools in the HOPE classes taught by Rachel Crews in Port St Joe and Dennis Kizziah in Wewahitchka. They shared personal stories of abuse, showed a video and talked about the importance of choices in relationships. Over 200 students learned the warning signs of abuse and how they can make better de cisions. They also learned how self esteem plays a critical role in the de velopment of their relationships. Crews, having taught for over 35 years, said she felt this is an im portant topic and well delivered. Martin and Ashbrook are planning a follow up visit to both schools and are considering an ongoing support group. The Gulf County Domestic Task Force is a local organization whose mission is to stop domestic violence in Gulf County through education, working with law enforcement and government agencies as well as pro viding counseling and emergency aid to victims. If you need a speaker for your or ganization call the ofce at 229-2901. Check out their website www.gcdv. org. By Tim Croft Star News Editor Over the next two week ends even the good guys best be scared of the Gulf County Sheriffs Ofce. Starting this Saturday and continuing the next the GCSO will spend a third straight year inhabiting the old Comforter Funeral Home in Wewahitchka for its Haunted House. The nights are scaref ests as well as fundraisers, with the Haunted House beneting the Wewa Food Bank as well as an effort to provide warm clothing to local children as the holiday season and cooler temperatures approach. The reason we do it is what we do if for, said Capt. Greg Cole of the GCSO. To provide for those who might not be as fortunate this holiday season, with food, warm clothing and things like that. This is not only a food drive, but also a drive for warm clothing. The planning for the Haunted House, Cole said, begins in August. Sgt. Rita Piercy begins to map out the house and how theyre going to scare the dickens out of all who enter. It is known as the House of Horrors for a reason and Cole, known as Bones for his work with cadaver dogs for the department, carries the nickname with him into planning for the Haunted House. Our goal is for them to run when they leave, Cole said with a laugh. It is a true Haunted House. This is our third year and it has proved so popular just be cause it is pretty frighten ing. Therefore, parents of wee ones, beware; Cole cautions this is a Haunted House for the older chil dren. Parts of it are pretty intense, Cole said with a smile. From 6 p.m. CT until over the next two Satur days, Cole and Piercy, have invited all the ghosts and spirits of the night to in habit the old funeral home at the corner of Chipola Street and State 711. In addition to the shakes and shivers of fright, hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn and drinks will be sold. Admission for adults is $2 plus a canned good; for children 10 and under the cost is $1 plus a canned good. All canned goods will go directly to the Wewa Food Bank. A lot of Haunted Houses are very expensive, and we went up a little bit this year, but the need is greater and we are just trying to pro vide for those who need it during the holiday season, Cole said. Ours is not very expensive. We try to set the price so we can meet the need. By Valerie Garman Star Staff Writer David Andrews ended the day with a new briefcase, personalized business cards and an invaluable experience. In partnership with Gulf County Association of Retarded Citizens (ARC), business leaders across Gulf County welcomed Andrews and other eager mentees as a part of Disability Mentoring Day on Oct. 13. Andrews shadowed Vision Bank Vice President Johanna White for the day, making trips to the bank, the Port Authority Ofce and the Novak Law Ofces, where County Attorney Jeremy Novak presented Andrews with his own briefcase and business cards. David is a businessman, he loves everything business, said White, who noted that the experience is valuable at both ends. This is by far the most rewarding thing to be able to do. Congress designated October National Disability Employment Awareness Month in 1945, and Disability Mentoring Day connects thousands of mentors and mentees worldwide each year. This is the second year the Gulf County ARC has participated in Disability Mentoring Day. Last year, every county in Florida participated for the rst time. Its a rewarding experience for the mentee, but once its done and said its a really rewarding experience for the mentor, said Dianna Harrison, administrator of the Gulf County ARC. I was very impressed with the businesses in the community that were open to being a mentor. The ARC offers vocational and residential programs to their clients, and works in partnership with the Bridge Program at Gulf County Schools. Albert Scheffer spent the day mentoring with Superintendent of Schools Jim Norton. Scheffer is an assistant physical education coach at the Port St. Joe Schools and also helps in the cafeteria. Hes a real success story for the school system and for us, Harrison said. Everybody knows Albert and everybody loves him. Harrison said the ARCs ultimate goal is to assimilate its clients into society, with a Disability Mentoring Day. Its an opportunity for the mentees to feel like theyre a normal part of society, Harrison said. Our big focus for the clients we serve is we try to give them the most normal life possible. We do whatever it takes to make them an integral part of the community. One of the integral goals of Disability Mentoring Day is to break the barriers and misconceptions that often keep people with disabilities from being hired. Amanda Baker is a living example of overcoming the obstacles of a disability. Baker spoke to the mentors and mentees at a lunch reception about the importance of employment and equal opportunities for the disabled. (Being employed) gives you more control over your own lives more choices, more control over your money. Baker said. It gives you a purpose. It lets you know that when you get up every day you have a job to do, and everybody is counting on you to do that job. Baker graduated in 2005 from Florida State University with a communications degree and entered the workforce in 2006. She encouraged her audience to try and overcome challenges and stay motivated when entering the workforce. For every person with a disability thats employed, it tears down that stereotype just a little bit more, Baker said. My big thing is inclusion, and a big part of that is employment. By Tim Croft Star News Editor The exterior to the Port St. Joe Junior/Senior High School gym is in need of a facelift. The district has the idea to memorialize community greats to get the job done. The brainchild of Superintendent of Schools Jim Norton, Port St. Joe Junior/Senior High and Gulf District Schools has launched a Brick Paver Campaign to apply some polish to the exterior of the R. Marion Craig Coliseum. In keeping with the theme of Nortons new tenure as superintendent, the idea is to improve community schools by soliciting community buy-in. The project also has more straightforward goals. One is to make clear to those unfamiliar with The Dome exactly what entrance to use, accomplishing that by replacing the current awning with a uniform, or uni-brow, banner, restoring the old exterior ticket ofce through which fans purchased tickets, performing some landscaping improvements and creating a honor brick pathway to the entrance/exit. The vision is for outof-town visitors, who dont understand where to enter, because it can be confusing now, to now understand where to enter, said Melissa Ramsey, who is spearheading the project from the district ofce. We wanted to highlight one central area. After entering, fans will travel directly down the hallway that contains the plaques honoring those who have been inducted into the Port St. Joe High School Athletic Hall of Fame. The brick paver project is designed to put down a pathway of decorative bricks honoring community fans of Port St. Joe athletics to replace the existing chipped concrete while improving aesthetics and creating another brand of hall of fame. We want it to be a memorial to honor the people or organizations who have been supporters of the school, Ramsey said. So far we have a great response. The hope is to sell 100200 paver bricks by Nov. 4 in order to begin the project in mid-November, Ramsey said. The pathway bricks that are not honor bricks when the walkway is constructed will easily pop out to allow the campaign to continue in the future. As honor bricks are sold, empty bricks will be popped out and replaced by honor bricks, Ramsey said. As currently designed, the walkway could contain more than 3,800 bricks. Hopefully these bricks will be there forever and this will continue in future years, Ramsey said. The aim is that the sale of bricks will cover most if not all the cost of the project. Paver or honor bricks are $100 and can be purchased for any dedication, be In Honor or In Memory of someone special or someone who has been a particular supporter of Tiger Shark athletics. For example, the family of the late Paul Sewell has already signed up for a brick to honor a man who followed Port St. Joe High School sports like a second family, honored by the state several years ago for attending 50 straight state high school basketball nals. He is a great example, Ramsey said. He celebrated their wins and their losses for so many years. This is what this (paver project) is for. Paver bricks can have up to three lines and 18 characters per line (counting spaces as characters). Checks should be made payable to Port St. Joe High School and submitted to Karen Taylor at the high school. For more information on the project contact Ramsey at 229-6940 or Taylor at 229-8251.

The merger of 7th and 8th grades with the high school classes has progressed very smoothly. The rst quarter ended last week with report cards going home Oct. 28. We have a new math teacher on faculty, Ms. Genevieve Baughman. The learning media center has taken on a new look with a new media specialist, Ms. Micah Peak. The WHS food service program has a new manager, Ms. Becky Hamm. The lunchroom now provides a la carte items such as pizza, salad, and assorted sandwiches in addition to the regular lunch menu. We also now have a breakfast program, which has been a big success. Everyone is looking forward to a great year. Please get involved and be part of that Gator Pride. Giving back to the school and community plays an integral role to the 21-member organization of National Honor Society. The juniors and seniors invest their time on several service projects throughout the school year. One ongoing project is offering tutoring services to all WHS students. NHS members make themselves available before and after school each day to assist students with homework or class assignments. It is an exciting opportunity for all involved to learn and grow academically. Another service activity NHS will continue is the long-standing tradition of Adopt-a-Highway. Numerous volunteer hours will be dedicated this school year in beautifying roadsides along State highways 22 and 71. The Student Government Association of Wewahitchka High School is proud to announce the activities for Homecoming 2011. Students will be participating in Homecoming Week activities from Oct. 24-28 this year. The theme for Homecoming this year is TV shows.

Students from Wewahitchka High School and Wewahitchka Elementary school S.W.A.T. programs presented an educational program to the Gulf County Commissioners at their meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 27. The students discussed the dangers of candy avored tobacco. The students were successful in their endeavor to have the commissioners pass a resolution urging tobacco retailers to stop the sale and marketing of candy avored tobacco products in Gulf County. This is HUGE for our students. Through thorough research, they were able to present staggering statistics about the use of tobacco products among children and youth. We are so proud of our S.W.A.T. (Students Working against Tobacco) students. At times, Wewahitchka High seems more like a community college than a high school. With four dual enrollment college classes currently meeting, including Biology I, western civilization, college algebra and English 1101, students in grades ten through twelve are able to get a serious jump start on their associates degree. Free books and tuition signicantly sweeten this deal and many students are taking advantage of the joint venture between Wewahitchka High and Gulf Coast State College. FCAT re-takes took place last week and in order to help our students with their reading, writing and (most importantly) thinking skills, Principal Debbie Baxley implemented a Reading/Writing connection across the curriculum. In each class, from carpentry to computer science, students complete a weekly project that requires them to read a passage, think critically about the composition, and then write about what they learned. Ms. Baxley feels condent that the students taking re-takes, as well as those taking the regular FCAT in the spring, will benet greatly from the new program. Finally, students have shifted into high gear as the rst grading period neared its end. Finishing notebooks, research projects, and unit tests dominated the business of the day. We wish each student the best of luck on his conclusion of the rst nine-weeks. Star Staff Report Dianne Semmes, right, from the GFWC Wewahitchka Womans Club, Inc., hands a taco salad to Cindy Traylor of Gaskin-Graddy Insurance Agency, Inc., of Wewahitchka.

Special to The Star Two staff members of Faith Christian School visited Pensacola Chris tian Academy this week to study and master the usage of the A Beka curriculum. FCS uses the A Beka cur riculum in almost all sub ject areas. This program uses the spiral method of teaching and has proven successful and challeng ing to students of all learn ing levels. Crystal Causey and Janice Evans observed veteran teachers of A Beka and attended seminars to better utilize the curricu lum in the classroom. They successfully completed the course in Educational Pro cedures (12 contact hours). Faith Christian School strives to stay current and trained in the A Beka ap proach to maintain thriving academics in every grade.

Jean Mahon Little Obituaries It is sad and frightening It is sad, and frightening. At least once a week, I meet someone who has been brainwashed by his/her religious leaders to consider only material produced and taught by his or her church or religion. They have been taught, Dont watch TV, or dont listen to the radio, dont read the paper, dont use the internet, and dont use any of the social networking sites, like Facebook, etc. What these leaders are essentially saying is, Dont allow yourself to be exposed to anything that might cause you to question, what you have been taught. All other teaching is of the Devil. If they come to your door, it is to try to entice you to become part of their Bible Study, or to go to their church in other words, become indoctrinated in their religion. Many years ago, I attended churches like this, and after it became obvious that their motivation was to control everything I did, and everything that I was to be exposed to, I started over. I recognized this for what it was an attempt at brainwashing. In 1985, after I was married, in a simple ceremony, without all the fanfare, my wife and I made two covenants, with each other, and with God. One covenant was to totally abstain from alcoholic beverages. The second covenant was to search out the truth about God, and what it takes to please Him. We have kept those covenants for over 26 years. We attended dozens of churches of many different beliefs, and found that all the churches were lacking in one or more teachings, when compared with what is taught in the writings of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. We quickly found that it is easy to take a few verses, here and there, and come up with a doctrine, that doesnt accurately reect what is conveyed, in the Bible as a whole, -and this is what they were doing. We found that Bible School training isnt much better, than the Bible Studies put on by the people, who come to your door. And the people who come out of these schools, end up thinking they know more than anyone else! We have done thousands of concordance searches, and read various Bibles, mostly the KJV and the NKJV -straight through, many times. We stopped counting at 20. We soon became convinced that we should concentrate on the teachings of Jesus. Jesus preached the Kingdom of God, and He sent others out to preach the Kingdom of God also. He didnt send them out to build great buildings, and ll them with people, and provide them with all sorts of programs. He sent them out to preach the Kingdom of God, heal the sick, cast out demons, and urge their listeners to become servants of God. 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.

Something to think about Until recently, I have been proud to live in Port St. Joe. But its getting to the point thats just not so. St. Joe is not the same town that I grew up in. They cater more to tourists now, and the bars keep peddling their gin. The booze hounds keep signing their petitions to keep the commissioners at bay. The bars keep the booze hounds happy till they send them on their way. With the booze hounds full and cash registers too. I think its sad for the ones at home, think about it folks, dont you?

For centuries, the brilliant change of leaf colors each was surrounded by mystery and superstition. From Jack Frost to the blood of the great bear, almost every society had its own legend explaining the phenomenon. Today, plant scientists have nally unraveled the secret of fall coloration. We may not see the incredible burst of vivid fall leaf color our northern neighbors enjoy each year, but we do have enough temperate region plants in some parts of Florida to give us some seasonal changes in foliage hues. Even Floridians residing in the southern most portions of our state might like to know why the leaves of some trees and shrubs change color as the weather cools in northern areas. My information on fall leaf color was provided by Patrick Minogue, Forestry Specialist with the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences located at Quincy AREC. The brilliant display of autumn leaves is brought on by a combination of things falling temperatures, short days, and certain chemical substances called pigments found in leaf tissues. Some of the pigments that give autumn leaves their bright colors are actually present in the leaves as soon as they unfold in the spring. But, during spring and summer, when the plants are growing vigorously, a green-colored material called chlorophyll dominates the other leaf pigments. Chlorophyll plays an important role in a process called photosynthesis, the process by which plants capture energy from sunlight and manufacture food. Chlorophyll is produced in the leaves of most plants during their active growing season. But, in the fall, as plants get ready for dormancy, the production on new chlorophyll slows down. Finally it stops altogether, and theres no chlorophyll left in the leaves. When this happens, the other leaf pigments, those we mentioned earlier take over and you see the bright cool-season colors. Pigments called carotenoids make the leaves turn orange, red, yellow, and brown. Other pigments, called anthocynanins are developed because of the changing weather conditions. Bright, clear autumn days and cooler temperatures produce shades of red and purple in the leaves. Still another group of pigments, called Anthoxanthins, cause yellow coloring in some foliage. Even though Floridas landscape is not famous for brilliant fall color, there are plants in some areas that do change color with the season. Its a good idea to include a few of these in home plantings. Unlike most of the owering shrubs, which hold their blossoms for only a brief period, the trees and shrubs that turn color in the fall will usually retain their varied hues for a month or more, depending on the weather. Some of the trees which will add fall eye appeal to your landscape are the Golden rain-tree, Red Swap Myrtle, Dogwood, Sweet Gum, Crape Myrtle, Tulip tree, and Bradford Pear. Each of these has its own unique color, but these can change somewhat from year to year, according to seasonal conditions. However, choosing one or two of these plants will assure you of some fall change in foliage hues. To nd out what choices would be best for your area, check with your Garden Center or contact the Gulf County Extension Service @ 639-3200, 2292909 or visit our website: gulf.ifas.u.edu.

If youre not sure, just ask the fth-graders at Port St. Joe Elementary School. On Sept. 26 they participated in an annual eld trip, Ag Adventures Day, at the North Florida Research and Education Center in Quincy. Ag Adventures Day is designed to teach 4th-6th grade students in Northwest Florida about agriculture through hands-on learning. Each group of students (an estimated total of 900 for the entire week) rotated through a variety of Florida agriculture related booths taught by Extension Agents, Extension Researchers, and volunteers with topics ranging from pumpkins, peanuts, soybeans, cotton, corn, honey bees, and soil types. The eld trip began with a fun, morning ride on the gator wagon to the farm. As they learned about agricultural crops, the students were also given the chance to touch, smell, and even taste some of the products. Some of the students favorite things were to walk through the pumpkin eld, dig peanuts, pick cotton, and sample boiled and roasted peanuts and roasted pumpkin seeds. The fth-graders from Gulf County had a great day lled with handson, outdoor educational activities and they each got their own pumpkin to take home. Now that these students have had a little taste of Florida agriculture we hope they will share their knowledge with their family, friends, and neighbors. Learning about agriculture helps them understand the link between food growing in a eld and what they see in the grocery store. This understanding is becoming more important with changing times. This annual program is sponsored by the Gulf County Extension Ofce, UF/IFAS Extension, 4-H, Florida Farm Bureau, University of Florida, Florida Ag in the Classroom, and Farm Credit of Northwest Florida. We want to say a special thank you to everyone who made this fun-lled experience possible. 4-H is a youth development program for youth ages 8-18 that is assisted greatly by adult volunteers. If you are interested in participating as a 4-Her or an adult volunteer please contact Melanie Taylor at the Gulf County Extension Ofce. She may be reached at 639-3200, 229-2909, or metaylor@u.edu. 4-H is more than you ever imagined. Come join the fun!

Its a blank canvas right now, said Port Authority executive director Tommy Pitts. Were talking about an economic development project that will create many jobs in our area. Ananth Prasad, secretary for the Florida Department of Transportation, Rep. Marti Coley (R-Marianna), local government ofcials and members of the Port Authority and its advisory team were among those who met to discuss the potential of the last undeveloped deepwater port in Florida. Port St. Joe is home to one of just 14 deepwater ports in the state. The port has constructed a barge terminal bulkhead along the Intracoastal Canal and is working in partnership with the St. Joe Company on plans to develop a parcel and the adjacent former paper mill site as an access point for larger ships. The Port Advisory Team, in partnership with Atkins Engineering and J.D. Sanchez Consulting, presented a strategic growth plan and a capital improvement nancing plan for port development during the Oct. 12 meeting, which laid out potential funding options, strategic development objectives, basic needs and key facts about the port. The purpose of the project is to research the possibility of port growth and research the market, said a representative from Atkins Engineering. Ofcials tour Port of Port St. Joe siteBy Tim CroftStar News Editor They were, as one observer noted, the redshirt freshmen to the area. The third annual Semper Fi Beach Blast brought more than 30 women from out of town to visit the area for the rst time and two dozen or so more who either live in Gulf County or attended the Beach Blast the past two years for a weekend of fun, laughter, a few tears and plenty of activity. The Semper Fi Sisters, clad in their red shirts, were everywhere over the weekend. Some participated in the Sheriffs Ofce bass shing tournament, others enjoyed the various locales where the songwriters, in for the Blast on the Bay Songwriters Festival, were playing and singing. They partied, they gabbed and, in general, got away for a spell from the everyday tensions of having a loved one in the military. They had a really good time, said event organizer Brenda Garth. Everything went so well. The community was fantastic. The big event of the big event, however, was Saturdays packing party at the Centennial Building. After a serenade from several of the songwriters in town, the group went to work and turned the inside of the Centennial Building into an assembly line spitting out care packages for troops. By afternoons end, the count of care boxes exceeded 700, more than double last year. Going out with a bang TT IM CC Ro O FT | The StarThe assembly line begins; the sisters packed more than 700 care packages for troops, double last years total. Top, included in each care package were photos of local folks thanking the troops overseas such as this one of the Port St. Joe High School cheerleaders saying thanks after a recent football game. Left, each care package sent to a military member overseas carried this gnome recognizing this years Beach Blast. The hope is to get back multiple photos from soldiers of the gnome at various outposts in Afghanistan and Iraq.By Tim CroftStar News Editor The three convicted suspects who robbed the Vision Bank in Port St. Joe on Dec. 20, 2010 were sentenced in separate hearings this past week. Jaylin Pittman, identied by his co-defendants as the rst one in the bank and having red a gun, pled no contest to armed robbery and was sentenced Oct. 13 to 17 years in prison with credit for 296 days time served. He was also ned $855 in court costs and nes. The rst 10 years of Pittmans sentence are a mandatory minimum sentence for the rst degree felony of robbery with a rearm. Pittman must serve at least 85 percent of the nal seven years under sentencing guidelines. Ricardo Clemmons, 21, pled no contest to a charge of being a principal to armed robbery, was adjudicated guilty and under a plea arrangement, was sentenced to six years in prison with credit for 296 days time served, plus court costs and nes of $855. Clemmons plea arrangement, said State Attorney Tim Register, was based on the fact he was the lookout man and never entered the bank.Vision Bank robbers sentenced Va A LERIE Ga A RMan AN | The StarThe Ports primary, short-term objective is to develop a $13.4 million shallow-water barge site along the Gulf County Canal seen here. By Valerie GarmanStar Staff Writer The room was full of ordinary heroes dressed in purple. Amidst posters of Spiderman, Superman and purple balloons were cancer survivors and caregivers, ready to pledge time and money to help in the ght against cancer. The Gulf County Relay for Life organizers held a kickoff party Oct. 11 at Boondocks restaurant to begin discussing plans for the 2012 Relay, which will be held April 27 at Port St. Joe High School. Event Chair Kim Kurnitsky revealed the theme for the 2012 relay as Ordinary Heroes, an ode to all the superheroes in the community who have battled against cancer. I think its very appropriate, Kurnitsky said. Thats what you guys are, ordinary heroes. Everybody in this room, you are all heroes. The committee set a goal to raise $62,000 for the American Cancer Society at the 2012 relay. The ACS uses the money to fund cancer research, education, advocacy programs and special services for patients like providing wigs, treatment transportation and lodging. Cancer survivor Amy Sasnett shared her struggle with Hodgkins lymphoma, a cancer that attacks the lymph nodes. She underwent eight chemotherapy sessions at the University of Alabama in Birmingham.

He was identified as being the second man in the bank and having taken the weapon from Pittman. He also pled no contest to armed robbery and was adjudicated guilty. Pittman originally pleaded not guilty and went to trial Sept. 20. However, with Clemmons and Winfield prepared to testify against him at trial, Pittman changed his plea mid-trial to no contest. During last Thursdays sentencing hearing before Circuit Court Judge Shonna Young Gay, a series of relatives and friends of Pittman asked for mercy, noting that Pittman had no criminal record, was running with the wrong crowd and made a horrible decision. I have to believe Jaylin can be rehabilitated, said his uncle Amos Pittman Jr. I know what he did was wrong. I am just asking the court to have mercy on Jaylin and his family. Pittman acknowledged his mistakes and stated a desire to help keep other children from making the same decisions he did. I want to help people not make the same mistake I made, Pittman told the judge. Be your own self, dont be a follower; be a leader. Its not a joke, it is real. When you pick up a gun the consequences, the consequences are dire. Register argued that Pittman deserved significantly more prison time than his co-defendants. Nancy Neal, the bank employee Pittman grabbed and pushed into the bank as she arrived for work, described the fear she felt as she heard a gun go off behind her Register acknowledged the gunshot, which hit a wall outside the bank, was likely accidental and Pittman threatening her with her life, saying, Someone is going to die today. I (now) know the fear and trembling that phrase brings, Neal said. In the end, it was a conscious decision by them to commit a crime, a bank robbery. I see two robberies taking place, one of the bank, for not a lot of money, and the second (the defendants) futures. Neal said her only thoughts during the minutes of the ordeal were how to ensure the safety of her co-workers and herself. While Neal escaped serious harm, she was badly bruised on both arms by the rough treatment from being pushed in the bank. Register said Pittmans actions were senseless, illegal and planned-out, and he deserved a sentence of at least 20-25 years. Every time I think of this case my blood boils, Register said. This is inexcusable. It wasnt just a stupid decision, it was evil and illegal. He pointed a loaded firearm at an innocent woman just going to work and told her she had to die. Gay denied a defense motion to consider sentencing Pittman as a youthful offender the defense argued for sentencing as a youthful offender given Pittman was 18 at the time of the incident and also handed down a sentence beyond the 61 months, with 12 years probation, recommended under a pre-sentencing report. According to law enforcement reports, the men entered the bank via a back door pushing Neal in as she prepared to open the back door. A neighbor behind the bank called 911 around 8:20 a.m. ET saying the bank was being robbed and shots had been fired. Units from the Port St. Joe Police Department, Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Gulf County Sheriffs Office responded. The three men made off with roughly $200 in coins. All three were apprehended within blocks of the bank and in custody within 21 minutes. ROBBERS from page A1SPECIAL TO TT HE STARLeft, Ricardo Clemmons received six years under a plea agreement.

Langston Drive is located between Williams Avenue and Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. The dedication ceremony will take place at the curve nearest MLK Drive. Star Staff ReportAccording to musician and songwriter Walt Aldridge, you havent lived until youve heard Billy Ray Cyruss Achy Breaky Heart performed by a traditional German oompah band. Aldridge and 19 other Nashville songwriters shared stories and songs this weekend, as venues throughout Port St. Joe, Mexico Beach and Indian Pass packed to the brim with country music acionados for the Third Annual Blast on the Bay Songwriters Festival. This year marked the biggest festival yet, with 20 songwriters playing in seven different venues along the Forgotten Coast. The festival kicked off Thursday night with a beach bonre in Indian Pass, where songwriters played informal, acoustic sets under a harvest moon. Hundreds came out to enjoy the bonre, which was complete with a spicy, low country boil of shrimp, potatoes, corn and sausage. The artists played in rounds Friday and Saturday night at venues like the Thirsty Goat, Provisions, The Haughty Heron, Mango Marleys and Toucans. A group also sang at the Semper Fi Sisters care packing party for the troops on Saturday at the Centennial Building. The festival wrapped up Sunday with an afternoon of picking and storytelling at the Indian Pass Raw Bar.

The plans highest priority and primary short-term objective is the development of an operational shallow-water barge site in the Gulf County Canal, parallel to Industrial Road. The total cost is estimated to be $13.4 million, and the Port Authority hopes the project can be completed within the rst three years of the ve-year capital improvement program. The second objective is a series of longer-term deepwater projects in St. Joseph Bay that will occur beyond the ve-year period with an estimated cost of $53.8 million. Another long-term objective is to provide opportunities for properties along the Gulf County Canal, extending to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and inland from Industrial Road to Highway 71, to be used for jobgenerating maritime-related uses. The document cited the 2014 Panama Canal expansion as a huge prospect for port development because the Port of Port St. Joe would be closer to the Panama Canal than the Port of Miami. The document also laid out potential federal and state funding options, but Prasad said the project needs to focus on nding private sector partners for further funding. Those days of if you build it, they will come are gone, said Prasad, who acted as a liaison for Gov. Rick Scott during the meeting. Government is not how were going to create jobs. What we want the Port to do is work with the St. Joe Company and local leaders to get those things lined up. The private sectors are whats going to create jobs. Port development was one of the key elements of the governors economic development/job creation initiative announced Wednesday. Gov. Scott is very focused on ports and infrastructure, Prasad said. He is very much committed and is going to support this 150 percent. Prasad said Scott wants all Florida ports to grow, so the Port of Port St. Joe should be designed to work in partnership with other Florida ports. What we want to do is steal from Mobile, Charleston and Savannah, Prasad said. Florida is going to win. Were not going to lose to Georgia or Alabama. Prasad said the next step is to market the port to potential private investors, who will ultimately drive the bulk of the funding for port development. He said timing is essential, and the governor will provide legislative support to ensure the project moves quickly. The window is short, Prasad said. Everybody is kind of jockeying for this position. The governor is very focused on it. Were going to be very nimble and move on a dime and do whatever it takes. He said the Port Authority must now focus on putting the puzzle pieces together, and the state will provide the missing piece if needed. The foundation is here, said Prasad, who noted the ports inherit advantages like excellent connectivity to the highway, rail connections and natural depth will aid in the investment and development process. Pitts presented diagrams outlining the potential market reach and economic impacts of the port, which could span a 500 mile radius. We have a very large population in our marketplace, Pitts said. Its very much a regional impact. Were not just talking about Port St. Joe. Pitts said development of the port will reach much farther than Port St. Joe, providing foundation for regional economic growth in struggling surrounding counties like Holmes, Franklin, Liberty, Calhoun and Gadsden. Pitts said port development also brings potential for new manufacturers in the area, who will benet from being near a transport center. He said he has received support letters from area counties and inquiries and letters of intent from various companies. Right now were working towards closing some deals, Pitts said. Were going to continue our discussions about various potential tenants. Gulf County Chamber Director Barry Sellers said in his 20 years in economic development the future port site has the most potential he has ever seen. He said the strategic growth and capital improvement nancing plan brochure sells itself. No other Port Miami, Jacksonville, Tampa, can say they have this much opportunity for growth, said Patrick Jones, vice chairman of the Port Authority Board. We have our basic infrastructure. Its just sitting there waiting for us to use. Jones said the creation of the Port Advisory Team gave the project an instant, credible network and they intend to use it in any way possible, while also welcoming outside ideas. This day is a vision and its a dream, said Johanna White, chairwoman of the Port Authority Board. In many, many counties the economic times have hit hard, very, very hard. Many people are moving away, losing their homes. We thought the time is now (to push forward on port development). Star News Editor Tim Croft contributed to this report. supporters, because with help from the American Cancer Society, she stayed at their Hope Lodge at UAB free of charge. It gives someone like me the chance to go somewhere like UAB and get treatment, Sasnett said. I also got to stay there with fellow cancer survivors. I could always talk to someone. Sponsorship chair Jera Horton led a glow stick luminary ceremony at the kickoff, a stand-in for the events candlelit ceremony, in recognition of loved ones who lost the ght against cancer. You were and always will be a part of us, Horton said. We light these candles as a continued commitment to the ght. Last year (the luminary ceremony) just really touched my heart. Theres nothing like being onstage and seeing those candles. The committee also honored the 2011 teams that raised the most funds: First United Methodist Church raised $11,056; Port St. Joe Elementary School raised $5,300; the VFW raised $4,394; El Governor Motel raised $4,200; and rounding out the top ve was the Gulf County Sheriffs Department with $3,317.

Thursday, October 20, 2011 OpinionA4 | The StarIt was one of those nights. I dont know what caused it. Perhaps it was the leftover Jerk Chicken I had eaten earlier in the day, perhaps it was the movies I had been watching or maybe it was something else. All I know is that it was real, or seemed real scary real. I went to sleep at around 1:30 a.m. and, sometime thereafter, I went to prison. Im unsure if it was a regular prison or POW camp. It had to be one of the two. There were no bars, but there was lots of barbed wire, fences, buildings and other male prisoners or inmates. In the last couple of days, Ive watched The Shawshank Redemption, Cool Hand Luke and Conspiracy Theory. None of those seemed to t quite right; the scenery in my dream was more like The Great Escape or Stalag 17. The rst thing I remember is walking around in a fenced area with lots of white buildings, the dream might have even been in black and white. None of the other prisoners were trying to hurt me or make me eat eggs, so I didnt seem to be Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) or Cool Hand Luke (Paul Newman). We (the prisoners) were just wandering around. It was too real. I didnt have, or need, a copy of Catcher in the Rye, so Conspiracy Theory was out of the question. I knew I would miss Julia Roberts. There were no paints or paper mache and I wasnt molding a fake head like Clint Eastwood did in Escape from Alcatraz. I was just walking around with the other prisoners. Then I thought about the buttery. This could be punishment for THE BUTTERFLY. On a recent family vacation, I got a henna tattoo of a buttery on my right bicep (so I could make it y). It embarrassed my teenage daughters. Papillon had a buttery tattoo, this might be it. No, I didnt have on red and white striped pajamas in my dream, Dustin Hoffman was not there and I wasnt eating bugs. I was not Papillon. On the other side of the barbed wire fences there were other people roaming around and cows. I dont know where the cows came from and I dont know if it was some sort of people and cow prison. It still seemed like a POW camp at this point and I was right in the middle of it. A man on the other side (with the cows) called me over to the fence. I started walking toward the fence, but I was scared very scared. It was all too real. Startled, I woke up and checked the time. It was somewhere between 3 and 4 a.m. I was scared, but I was still interested in my dream and getting out of wherever I was. I went right back to sleep and landed right back at that fence again. The fellow at the fence said Ive got something you can use. I dont remember saying anything. The man handed me a small pair of wire cutters through the fence. I remember looking around to see if any one was looking. I slipped the wire cutters into my pocket. There was a cow looking at me through the barbed wired fence. Then the man gave me another pair of wire cutters, or bolt cutters, that were about twice the size of the rst pair he gave me. Again, I looked around to see if any one was watching. I slipped the second pair into my other pocket. They wouldnt t, so I pulled my shirt tail out to cover them up. I was starting to sweat. Then the fellow pulled these huge bolt cutters out of nowhere and threw them over the fence. The handles seemed to be about three feet long. I remember asking myself, I have a 29 inseam. What am I going to do with these? I picked up the long bolt cutters and faced the buildings inside my prison or prison camp. I stuck the bolt cutters down the back of my pants, one handle in each leg. Then I started walking straight-legged toward the buildings. I remember it feeling like I didnt have knees. A guard approached me; I knew I was done for. The guard didnt say anything; he just let me pass by walking straightlegged like a man on stilts. I woke up again in a cold sweat. It was around 5 a.m. While I was awake, Last week was signicant for those who see the port of Port St. Joe as a regional economic engine. A visit by the Secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation, Ananth Prasad, to Gulf County for a look at the port and the landscape, joined by several state ofcials, in particular state Rep. Marti Coley (RMarianna), could be a change-maker. Having state ofcials on the ground examining potential is a major step for a port that has languished while folks talk endlessly about the potential, like a dog in search of its tail. The Apalachee Regional Planning Council, a regional economic development agency, has identied the Port of Port St. Joe has one of the most signicant, if not the most signicant, keys to job creation and economic development not just in Gulf County but Northwest Florida. That makes it perfect for the governors mantra of seeking job creation. When he visited for the annual Lincoln Day dinner earlier this year, Gov. Rick Scott became animated and passionate about the potential of the ports in Florida, including Gulf County, a view reected in the recent announcement of his economic plan which put considerable emphasis on ports. Further, that district FDOT staff are members of the port advisory team currently crafting a marketing plan and identifying potential customer bases and nancial needs is crucial to the effort of raising the ports prole. However, they say talk is cheap and it is past time that all the talk is transformed into action on several levels. This seems particularly true if, in fact, the port of Port St. Joe is be a player when the expansion of the Panama Canal is nished sometime in 2014, as projected. There is little time to waste in getting federal approval for the U.S. Army Corps to dredge the existing and federally-certied shipping channel off the coast. Local and state ofcials should be pushing the states Congressional delegation in Washington, D.C. to spur the Army Corps to action on the dredging. There is also little time to dally on bulkhead or uplands improvements needed to market as navigable destinations for people and goods the old mill site and the parcel to the north once leased to the port. There is scant time to expend on the nal improvements to be made to bring customers and trafc over the barge terminal already in place along the Intracoastal Waterway. The state might not have much money to pony up for the effort in truth the port has garnered millions in state and federal funds to craft a master plan, create the barge terminal and make other improvements but the countys legislative delegation could take a cue from Coley and ensure that the development of the port of Port St. Joe be a priority in the states grand plan to create jobs. But Prasad also commented about private partners and for this the St. Joe Company is essential. As visioning exercises during much of the previous decade demonstrated, the port is likely not developing without more hands on deck as partners and the partner poised in the best position is St. Joe. The company owns the old mill site and its existing bulkhead that offers a toehold to coastal land that is a key to port expansion by allowing larger-draft ships access to the port facilities. The old mill site is also critical to the development of the parcel to the north. Being accessible to the larger ships, in addition to barge trafc that would benet from the rail and inland waterway access the port currently provides, is critical if the port is ever to create the kind of customer base and in turn jobs that so many envision as its full potential. But one thing the governor makes clear is that government can not create jobs, only the environment for creation, and Prasad was echoing that position when he noted that port development hinges on private partners, in particular The St. Joe Company. And there is a link between community and St. Joe that should make the case for a focus on the port stronger. This is where the company made riches as paper makers for over 60 years. The company took its name from the community from which it grew and while Port St. Joe was a mill town, its heartbeat was the mill whistle telling all when it was time to work, eat or play. Post-mill, St. Joe has both put in to the community donations for parks, school programs, hospitals, to name a few and taken out the move of a three-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 98 to accommodate a development. But as changes on the board and in the company headquarters in Jacksonville, as job cuts have impacted even Floridas largest landowner, focus and strategies changed. One central reason for the upheaval within the company was its value and how much all those acres of land across Northwest Florida and southern Georgia were really worth. So a public/private partnership to develop the port could create several winners. While assisting in that development by providing land and marketing expertise, St. Joe can attach a value to its holdings while increasing the value by putting people back to work and creating for the wide swath of acreage St. Joe owns consumers. The port of Port St. Joe, meanwhile, can turns years of talk into plans to develop the kind of facility capable to handling a wide variety of goods and creating consumers for the wide swath of acreage St. Joe owns. And, just maybe, a community desperate for positive economic news will nally have the economic engine over which so much talk has been expended. Pretty is as pretty does Keyboard KLATTERINGSThe great escapeUnlocking the ports potential TiIM CrROFtTStar news editor I saw where Sarah Palin dropped out of the presidential race. Good for her! She was too pretty to be president. And Im not comparing her with Haley Mills or Farrah Fawcett here. That beauty thing is relevant as to situation, location, eye of the beholder, whos in the picture with you, how dark it is in the back booth ... Shes better looking than Ross Perot or John McCain. And Id give her the nod over Al Gore and Newt Gingrich. But running for President of the United States is not a beauty contest. Or is it? It wasnt in Abraham Lincolns day. I dont think he could make the cover of GQ. People magazine usually goes for ashy blonds. Sports Illustrated doesnt cover rail splitting, so Abe couldnt have adorned that cover either. And it is rather hard to imagine him debating illegal immigration, world trade agreements or the Wall Street roller coaster on TV today. He would be a publicists nightmare! Weve got a guy here with good walking-around sense, who could acquit himself well in most any situation, honest to a fault, a real viable candidate. But we cant show his face until after the election! Picking a president is kinda like searching for the right person to take to the prom. We all, naturally, want to take the best looking date in town. I was seeking a tall, sleek, handsome beauty queen. No one preferred to be tied to a dog when the band struck up Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White. If you were lucky enough, youd nd a semi-cute girl to walk in on your arm and the evening was all bright and rosy until she opened her mouth! You asked if shed like some punch and she replied, rather too quickly and a little louder than necessary, Aint they got no ice cream! You mercifully turn down her street after the dance of a thousand nightmares has drawn to a close and shes still lling your ear, Did you see Jo Annes dress? I thought them puffed up sleeves were wings! If she had apped about twice I swear she would have lifted off the ground. I cant believe they didnt have no ice cream! You nally make it to the front door and are hurrying your good night when the erstwhile beauty adds the clincher, Next time we go out, hows bout you bring the chewing tobacco! Didnt someone once say its not the wrinkle free skin or the surgically repaired nose..but the content of your character that counts! And please, PLEASE dont think Im saying that since Sarah Palin is attractive she is a ditz. Far from it! I dated a good looking girl once that was smarter, more thoughtful and much more in touch with reality than I was. If shed had just a little money I would have married her in a heartbeat. Im simple saying you cant judge a book by looking at the cover. But here is the real problem. If I take the wrong date to the prom, no harmno foul. Sure, Im uncomfortable for an evening. The guys give me the we cant believe you brought her look, and there is an awkward moment on the front steps when I pretend to tell her what a wonderful time I had. But the evening ends and I can get on with my life. If we select the wrong president, the prom lasts for four years! That is an eternity to be saddled with the wrong date. Can you image the embarrassment and uncomfortable moments that can arise in that length of time! It could warp you for life! Or set you on a road that you dont want to go down. Harry Truman wouldnt win any beauty contest, but I think he was the right man at the right time in our history. The much honored George Washington had such bad teeth he would hardly open his mouth. His hair fell over his collar and he was only an average speech renderer at best. Every picture Ive seen of Thomas Jefferson looks like he was raised on green apples and sour onions. Dwight David Eisenhower helped win a World War and Presidented over one of the greatest decades in our history, but he looked like a quiet, unassuming, ordinary man to me. You wouldnt have picked any of these fellers for Dancing with the Stars. Martin Luther King Jr. was right! It is not about the pigmentation of your skin. Or who your momma and them are, or how much money your Aunt Matilda has accumulated, or how much the boys think of you down at the Lodge.. IT IS about the content of your heart! Heres our mission, if we choose to accept it. Weve got to run down a long list of possibles and select the correct presidential candidate. Dont expect any true insight from ABC, CNN, Jon Stewart and the like. Sometimes your neighbor doesnt know any more than you do! And the candidates dont really help. They put on their best smile for the camera and yell for lower taxes, more jobs, shrinking national debt and a chicken in every pot. Its hard to see their hearts through all the mudwhomp and habberdashing! But weve got to do due diligence on this one. Dont fall for the pretty face or the im-am rhetoric. If we ever needed to get to the heart of the matterit is now! Cause heres the bottom line, guys, I dont want the next president to turn out like my rst date to the prom. We might not could survive four years of that! Respectfully, Kes HUnkerNKER DOWnNKesley Colbert USPS 518-880Published every Thursday at 135 W.

SHARE Yo O Ur R OPINIONs S LettersA5 | The Star Thursday, October 20, 2011I dreaded going back to sleep, but then again, I knew I had to go back in there and try to escape. I had three pairs of wire/bolt cutters. Surely, I would get out. I went back to sleep and back into my dream. I was in a chicken house inside the prison/POW camp. I was trying to hide or bury the three pairs of wire/ bolt cutters. The ground was hard, I was covering the cutters (Im tired of saying wire/bolt) with dirt, hay and every thing else that chickens use. In the meantime, I was late for dinner and I knew I would be missed, so again panic set in. After hiding the cutters, I started running toward the white building where the prisoners ate. They were all coming out. They were nished, I was doomed. Then this big fellow started walking toward me. He had three Tupperware containers of leftovers (I dont know, it was a dream). He was having trouble carrying the three stacked containers and dropped the one on top. It hit the ground and a hamburger patty fell out. He smiled at me with his toothless grin and said, You can have it. His look and smile scared me. It was 7 a.m., the alarm clock radio blared Rod Stewarts Do Y a Think Im Sexy?

ESCAPE from page AA4Dear Editor: My wife and I knew nothing about a biomass project planned for Port St. Joe until late August, when we received a mailing from the Gulf Citizens for Clean Renewable Energy. At that point, we got involved with this concerned group and tried to alert the citizens of Port St. Joe of the dangers of an incinerator such as this. We were astounded to learn from many citizens that they knew nothing of a biomass incinerator either. We thought we could simply put out signs telling them of the dangers of pollution from an incinerator, but in addition, we had to educate them on what it was and that it was being planned for our city, because of the lack of citywide notication or town hall meetings. A few days later, on Aug. 30, the Planning and Development Review Board (PDRB) members sold out the city of Port St. Joe by approving the development order for the biomass energy incinerator and sending it for a nal decision to the City Commission. There would have been more people at the PDRB public hearing but it was held at 4 p.m. ET when most working people could not attend. It seemed these city leaders did not want many people there that could speak out against the biomass incinerator. The city commissioners tried to fast-track the biomass issue by having it on their agenda for Sept. 6, a week after the PDRB vote so as to not give the opposition time to get the word out. But, that was delayed until Oct. 4. Again, on that date, the city commissioners sold out their own citizens by voting at this public hearing to approve the development order sent from the PDRB. At this particular meeting, due to organized efforts of many concerned individuals and groups, the majority that attended the meeting were opposed to and spoke up against this dirty polluting incinerator. The city commissioners and the PDRB should be ashamed of themselves for already having made up their minds to approve this project, trying to ram it down the throats of the citizens, and pretending to listen to their opinions. This was very evident at the PDRB meeting, where they passed out copies of their Findings, stating under No. 8, The PDRB had all of its positions lled and had a quorum present at the Aug. 30, 2011 meeting, and along with their Recommended Order stating Based on the ndings set forth above, which are incorporated herein by reference, it is the vote of the PDRB that the Application be approved for submittal to the City Commission with a recommendation that the City Commission approve the project. How did they know this before it even happened? This will be remembered at the next election Count on it. We want honest representatives, and who will listen to majority opinions of the citizens. There have been those who are congratulating the city leaders on a job well done. Im glad they are more savvy on poisonous toxins than The American Lung Association and The American Lung Association of Florida who oppose these types of incinerators. In a few short years, when you have a certain type of cancer from dioxins or other toxic chemicals, or have a tough time breathing, or no more edible seafood, or no more tourists wanting to come here, you will think back on this and remember how your city leaders sold you out. But it will be too late.Dave DorrisPort St. JoePort St. Joe sold out by city leadersAdmit it: You probably spend more time comparison shopping online than reviewing your annual benets enrollment materials. Thats a big mistake because the money you could save by choosing the right employee benets package probably far exceeds any savings you could get on a big-screen TV. For example, many people dont sign up for an extremely valuable benet exible spending accounts (FSAs). If your employer offers them, FSAs let you pay for eligible out-of-pocket health care and/or dependent care expenses on a pre-tax basis that is, before federal, state and Social Security taxes are deducted from your paycheck. Using an FSA to cover expenses you would have paid for anyway reduces your taxable income by that amount, which in turn lowers your taxes. Heres how it works: Say you earn $40,000 a year and are in a 25 percent tax bracket. If you contribute $1,000 to the health care FSA and $3,000 for dependent care, your taxable income would be $36,000 about a $1,000 reduction in federal taxes alone, depending on your marital status, withholding deductions and other factors. (Use the calculator at www. dinkytown.net/java/ Payroll125.html to evaluate your situation.) Health Care FSAs let you pay for IRS-allowed medical expenses not covered by medical, dental or vision insurance, including deductibles, copayments, orthodontia, glasses and contact lenses, prescriptions, chiropractic, smoking cessation programs and many more. Check IRS Publication 502 at www.irs.gov for a list of allowable expenses. Dependent Care FSAs let you use pre-tax dollars to pay for expenses related to care for your children, disabled spouse, parent, or other dependent incapable of self-care, including: Licensed day care or adult care facility fees. Services provided in or outside your home (including babysitter, nursery school or summer day camp) so that you and your spouse can work, look for work, or attend school full-time. Beforeand afterschool programs for dependents under age 13. Babysitting by relatives over age 19 who arent your dependent. For some lower-income families, using the federal income tax dependent care tax credit is more advantageous than an FSA so crunch the numbers or ask a tax expert which alternative is better for you. Just be aware that you cannot claim the same expenses under both tax breaks. Your FSA contributions are deducted from paychecks throughout the year. As you incur eligible expenses, you submit receipts to the plan administrator for reimbursement. Also, many employers now offer prepaid health care cards, which let you draw on your account at the point of service to pay for qualied medical expenses, thereby eliminating the need to pay cash up front and submit reimbursement forms. Keep in mind these FSA restrictions: Maximum contribution amounts vary by employer, but commonly are $2,000 to $5,000 a year for health care and $5,000 for dependent care FSAs. Health care and dependent care account contributions are not interchangeable. Estimate planned expenses carefully because you must forfeit unused account balances. Some employers offer a grace period of up to 2 months after the end of the plan year to incur expenses; but thats not mandatory, so review your enrollment materials. You must re-enroll in FSAs each year amounts dont carry over from year to year.

Flexible spending accounts slash your taxes JasoASON Alder LDERMaANBy Marcus SturdivantTwo weeks ago, the city commissioners of Port St. Joe approved a change to the city ordinance by a vote of 3-2 to allow bars to remain open until 2 a.m. I am very disappointed in the three commissioners voting for the proposal, especially the one I voted for in the last election. I can assure I will not make the same mistake again. I attended the meeting, speaking in opposition to the proposal, as did three others. What struck me as being odd was the glaring absence of most of the pastors in Port St. Joe as well as representatives from their respective congregations. I guess they had other things more important to attend to. After all, who cares if these three city commissioners have set in motion an agenda to fundamentally transform Port St. Joe? Anyone with any common sense surely understands by increasing the number of hours bars can remain open will result in more people becoming intoxicated. Folks, this isnt rocket science. More opportunity to drink is going to result in more drunks, which in turn will result in more accidents and more people being injured and killed. Before becoming a pastor I was also a police ofcer. I have now been retired for over 20 years and I still recall the terrible damage drinking drivers inicted on innocent people. The absolute worst accident I ever worked involved a young man who had been drinking but was not legally drunk. This young man gambled, emboldened by the alcohol he had consumed, and foolishly passed another car on a winding road separated by double yellow lines. He unfortunately struck another car headed in the opposite direction, killing all three passengers. A husband, eight-month pregnant wife and a three-year-old girl lost their lives because someone thought it was cool to drive and drink. Sadly, the woman was an only child. Here parents lost their only daughter, their only granddaughter and soon-to-be grandson. Although this young man had not been in a bar, drinking alcohol still played a contributing part. The message I think it perfectly clear; do not drink and drive. Again, it isnt rocket science to gure out that extended hours of drinking will result in more serious accidents. If someone is injured or killed because of alcohol consumed in a bar in Port St. Joe after midnight, these three city commissioners must bear the responsibility. I would encourage anyone injured by a drunk driver as a result of this new law to seek full restitution from the bar owners and the three city commissioners who voted for the ordiance. The truth is, by voting for this amendment it tells me one of two things; this person either listened to his/her sin nature rather than the Holy Spirit or he/ she does not have the Holy Spirit at all. Given what I know about Gods word, I can assure you the Holy Spirit did not direct anyone to vote for the amendment. The key to living a successful Christian life is to make the right choices. Anytime someone justies his or her actions by starting the conversation with this is what I believe, we can know they are not listening to the Holy Spirit. I want to share something I discovered a long time ago and it is this; just because we believe something to be true does not make it so. The majority may rule; as was the case with this ordinance, however, this does not mean the majority is right. Finally, true Christians in this community need to get involved. If Christians continue to remain silent then Port St. Joe is going to slowly evolve into something none of us like. We have a unique community that in my humble opinion is a great place to raise our children and to grow old gracefully. If we are not protective of what we have it will be taken away and replaced by something far worse than we can imagine. I salute the mayor and Commissioner Buzzett for voting against the amendment. We need to elect three more city commissioners of the same caliber. Above all, we need to listen to the Holy Spirit rather than ourselves. The Holy Spirit will always direct us to the right choices.

Thursday, October 20, 2011 FreshwaterThe mahi-mahi have moved off of the buoy line in Mexico Beach and might be gone for the winter. Good-sized kingsh have invaded St. Joe Bay and can be caught from the Sea wall behind Bluewater Outriggers. Large spinning reels or surf tackle will help you with the long runs the kings will make. Live baits are working great; however, saltwater ies and trolling gear are landing sh here as well. Inshore OffshoreInshore shing in St. Joe Bay has been a mixed bag. Strong numbers of trout are coming in, but most are too small to keep. Fishing the Fire Tower area and Pig Island seem to be producing good numbers with an occasional keeper. The Canal or I.C.W. is still holding a good amount of red sh and trout as well. Low water in the river systems has got the bass all schooled up. Great reports from anglers catching large amounts of bass from Apalachicola to the Dead Lakes this past week. Depot Creek has started to produce crappie in decent numbers this past week along with the usual suspects. SpoPONsoSOREdD bBY Special to The StarThat little hint of fall teasing us early each morning gives notice that one of area sportsmens most anticipated events is soon to occur. The fth annual  Panhandle Sportsmans Banquet will be Nov. 3. Port St. Joe Lions Club members are  busy working  to make this years event not only  bigger and better than ever, but a special moment to remember. Attendees will enjoy the historic surroundings of the Port St. Joe Centennial Building while socializing with numerous area sportsmen and enjoying appetizers of Apalachicola oysters, boiled shrimp and all the trimmings beginning at 5 p.m. ET. The beverage bar will also open at that time. At 6:30 p.m. the serious eating begins. Chef Charlie Nortons famous, no-man-left-hungry rib-eye steaks will take up a good portion of the dinner plate, leaving just enough room for the salad, potato and rolls. Dont forget to save room for  Sisters almost equally famous banana pudding. The real winners at this years banquet, though, will be the beneciaries of the community service projects supported by the Lions Club. More than $15,000 was raised at 2010s banquet for community service programs in the panhandle. There have been a few changes made to this years event. First is the location, the Centennial Building in Port St. Joe. Because of conicts between hunting seasons and the Nov. 3 date, the Box R Ranch was unavailable. The good news is the Centennial Building will remove the threat of inclement weather and provide the backdrop of the historic building, erected in recognition of the signing place of Floridas rst Constitution. Second, live music. Not just any live music, but as long as were being somewhat nostalgic, many of us remember the band Southern Satisfaction from our high school dance era.  They have not only aged well, but they are better than ever and agreed to make this years banquet even more special with a one-night reunion tour .  Some of the bands past mem bers will blend with the current group  and add  some special music to the event.    At 7:30 p.m., its time to let a few notches out of your belt and get ready for the real excitement. More than $20,000 worth of contributions and prizes will be distributed to the guests through silent auctions,  live auctions and rafes.  A few of the items offered will  include shot guns, hunting ries, pistols, rods and reels and numerous other outdoor products. There will also be items available for women and children. This will mark the second year of the $8,000 cash drawing held during the event. The lucky winner could win up to $8,000 if his ticket is drawn last from the box, but each ticket holder will have a 1 in 25 chance of at least doubling their money.  Tickets for the event  are $50 in advance and $60 at the door. They can be purchased at Hannon Insurance and  Ramseys Printing and Ofce Products  in Port St. Joe and from  any Lions Club member. Additional  information or ticket purchases can be made by calling 227-1133, 227-7767  or 527-1338.Panhandle Sportsmans Banquet to be Nov. 3 From top, Bobby Pickels, left, and Willie Ramsey scan the crowd for the bids on several shotguns.

Special to The StarMany state parks have a citizen support organization, a group of dedicated volunteers who operate for the direct benet of the state park they support. The Friends of St. Joseph Peninsula State Park Inc. is the CSO for St. Joseph Peninsula State Park and the Constitution Convention Museum State Park. We are driven by our love for the beautiful St. Joseph Peninsula State Park and the history shared at the museum. We work closely with the parks rangers by raising funds for various needs of the parks. We have 118 CSO volunteers who participate in beach clean-ups, building and maintaining board walks and trails, assisting with programs and special events, maintenance of cabins and keeping the park clean. Within the past four years, we have provided funds through the sale of T-shirts, ice and lately, re wood. This past year, our Tour of the Cape was very successful. There was so much support from the local community, which drew interest to our area. We hope to continue the event again next year. It is also our plan to put on a haunted trail event next year, which should be a great event for the family. We host several scout and school events each year. Please come help us support these events and support the park. Anyone interested in supporting the park is encouraged to become a member of our CSO. We have a few meetings each year and an annual celebration for our members each March with a barbecue. A meeting is planned for 7 p.m. ET Oct. 27, and refreshments will be provided. We hope to make plans for the upcoming tour in February and next years Halloween event. Please come to the new re department if interested. If you cannot attend, information for membership is available at the park entrance. Just ask a ranger. For information about Florida state parks, visit www.oridastateparks. org.

Anyone interested in playing should show up with a glove ready to play.By Tim CroftStar News Editor The preliminaries are over the Wewahitchka season and playoff hopes are up for grabs as Sneads comes to town. The Pirates will face Wewahitchka at 7 p.m. CT on Friday at Gator Field. Sneads enters the game undefeated, along with Ver non, in District 2-1A. Sneads, which has We wahitchka and Vernon re maining, and Vernon, which still has three district games remaining, have district foes to face. For the Gators, 2-1 in dis trict play, it all comes down to Sneads, their nal district game. This is a playoff game for us, maybe the third we have played the way the sched ule has played out, said Wewahitchka coach Dennis Kizziah. We determine our destiny. We win and we are right there in it. If we lose we are probably out of it. In a large part, this is right where Kizziah wanted the Gators more than a month ago after they lost their rst two games, includ ing a loss to Vernon. Kizziah said at the time that if the Gators were to win their next ve, they would ar rive at the Sneads contest in position for a playoff spot. Wewahitchka put the nishing touches on that vegame winning streak last Friday, as they manhandled Tallahassees John Paul II 47-0 to raise its overall re cord to 5-2. It was a game at a time we needed, Kizziah said of the Gators easiest win of the year. We got some reps in and then were able to take out our starters. And we got to play a lot of the younger guys. We played okay. We went over there and ac complished what we want ed to. Theryl Brown rushed for 135 yards, taking him to more than 1,100 for the season, and one touchdown and also returned two punts for scores to pace Wewahitchka. Justin Flowers was 4 for 6 passing with a rushing touchdown and a passing touchdown to Chris Myrick, who also grabbed a scoring reception from Rashard Ranie. Sneads will come to Wewahitchka without the top running back in the area based on total yards suited up after Tre Keys, who had rushed for more than 1,200 yards, tore up a knee last Friday against Baker and is done for the season. Thats real big, Kiz ziah said. But we are preparing for them just like hes going to be there be cause they have some very good running backs. They run a Wing-T and Keys just happens to get the bulk of the carries. But they have some other backs who can hurt you. Kizziah said his team is healthy and prepared to take matters such as a playoff spot into their hands. Weve got to go out and play like we can play, Kiz ziah said. We have to set a tone early and play swarm ing defense. This is it. Our season is on the line.By Tim CroftStar News Editor Condence is higher this week though numbers were lower for the Port St. Joe High Tiger Sharks. The Tiger Sharks (3-3 overall and 1-1 in District 4-1A), won their secondstraight game with a 280 shutout of host Rocky Bayou last week, but will continue to play without two starters for at least two more weeks. We have been playing all year for this part of the schedule because it is the beginning of our playoff, said Port St. Joe coach Vern Barth of a slate that includes two critical home district games after a trip to Tallahassee FAMU this week. If we can just over come the injury bug well be alright. The Tiger Sharks will be without running back/ defensive back Natrone Lee for at least two more weeks after Lee suffered a chest injury two weeks ago against Franklin County. Lineman/linebacker Daniel May, like Lee one of a handful of seniors on the roster, will be lost for two to three more weeks due to an ankle sprain he suf fered in the same win over Franklin County. I need the other guys behind them to give the best effort they possibly can, Barth said. We got them playing time against Rocky Bayou and for the next couple of weeks, at least, they need to step up. The blanking of Rocky Bayou was one of the more complete efforts the Tiger Sharks have offered, Barth said. The long bus ride to Okaloosa County left his team sluggish at the start, but they soon got rolling and were up 28-0 at inter mission, allowing for liberal substitution. We played well in spurts, Barth said. We got off to a slow start offen sively, but once we gured out what they were doing defensively, the offense started clicking. Defensively, it was another solid effort. And we had the opportunity to play some of the younger guys. Rumello Zaccaro ram bled for 114 yards and two touchdowns to lead Port St. Joe, which also got 73 yards and a touchdown on four carries from Corey North. Arion Ward com pleted the scoring by in tercepting a pitchout and rumbling 13 yards for a touchdown. Port St. Joe faces FAMU High on Friday, a highlyranked Class 2-A team. Barth said FAMU will offer a look at the speed and tal ent the Tiger Sharks need as they prepare for the nal stretch of the season. They have a lot of speed and they are a very good team, Barth said. It will be a good test for these guys, especially with the games we have coming up. Those include district foes West Gadsden and Lib erty County, both at Shark Field, over the next two weeks. Blountstown, which beat Port St. Joe, Liberty County and West Gads den are all undefeated in district play, but West Gadsden begins its dis trict schedule this week and Liberty County and Blountstown end the season with their annual rivalry game. Therefore, two wins would all but ensure a playoff berth for the Tiger Sharks and a split, provided the win was against Liberty County, could still leave Port St. Joe in the mix.Star Staff Report St. Joseph Bay Golf Club has announced it will hold a benet golf tournament Saturday, Nov. 19, with proceeds supporting the Camp Gordon Johnston World War II Mu seum.

This years Dig Pink event, which promotes vol leyball along with breast cancer awareness, will be held during the nal regu lar season game, tonight, against county rival Wewa hitchka in the R. Marion Craig Coliseum. Tonight 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. Everyone is encouraged to wear pink, which in the past two years has helped transform The Dome into something resembling 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 dis ease) are strong, so we have to be strong. The Dig Pink event is held as part of a national campaign by the Side-Out Foundation, which is com mitted to the unication of volleyball and its alliance with the movement for breast cancer awareness and education. Founded seven years ago, the Side-Out Foun dation also hosts clinics and camps with the aim of supporting breast can cer awareness and raising 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 community, given every thing else we ask of them, that will be pretty good. This has become a pretty big deal with college and high schools. Taylor said the idea came after his wifes sister battled breast cancer sev eral years ago. Her cancer is now in remission, but in his research at the time Taylor came across the Side-Out Foundation 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 affect us, it could affect our loved ones. And, in talking to team members, that most have a personal story to tell. Oneika Lockley said she will be playing for her grandmother who has breast cancer. Ill play that night the hardest I have played all season, Lockley said. Nicole Spilde said shell be playing for Gina Meis ner, a friend of the family who has successfully beat en the disease. It hits home, Spilde said. 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. Contact Taylor to purchase one via email at wtaylor@gulf.k12. .us and samples can be viewed online at psjhs-gcs.schoolloop.com/. Port St. Joe improved to 12-8 overall with a straightsets win last Thursday at East Gadsden, 25-9, 25-13 and 25-14. Autumn Haynes had six kills while Katie Gardner had 11 service aces and Katie Lacour had eight. Port St. Joe hosted Bay on Wednesday and will nish the season tonight at the Dig-Pink event against Wewahitchka. Star Staff ReportLast Saturday morning at Shark Field, two Gene Rafeld football teams put on a show and improved their records to 3-0. The rst team on the eld to play the Sneads Pirates was the defending Big Bend Cham pion Jaguars. For the rst time this year, the Jags offense failed to score on their initial possession. With the Pirate offense on their own 20, Roman Harrison smashed into the backeld and put a vicious hit on the Sneads ball carrier knocking the ball loose. Gene Quinn swallowed it up for Port St. Joe. On the rst play from scrimmage, quarterback Devin Crews rolled to his right and, off a key block by Caleb Butts, went into the end zone untouched. The next possession for the Jags was all Cam eron Harmon. He ran for 35 yards, and two plays later scampered 25 yards for the touchdown. Three minutes before the end of the half, with the Jaguars on their 25, Harmon went 75 yards for his second touchdown of the day. To open the second half, helped by two long pen alties and the initial rst downs the Jaguars have allowed this year, the Pi rates reached the PSJ 15. The defense, determined to keep their season long shutout record intact, came to life driving Sneads back to the 40. The offense took over on downs. In the last period, Harrison went 37 yards for a touchdown to bring the nal score to Jaguars 26-0. Not to be outdone by the older Jaguars, the 7 and 8 year old Dolphins contin ued the PSJ winning day with a 16-0 defeat of a strong Sneads Pirate team. Brenon Foxworth had a 35-yard run to set up a 27-yard touch down by Max Cargill. The offensive play of the day had Josh Farmer run 90 yards to the Pirate 2. On the next play, Cargill took the ball in on a sneak. For the third game in a row, the Dolphin defense held the opposition score less. Aiden Gainer and Hayden Byrd led the de fense with ve tackles each. Farmer had four tackles. Foxworth had three and an interception. Because Sneads does not have an 11 and 12-year-old team, the Buccaneers did not play. The next home games are this Saturday. The Jag uars and Dolphins will face teams from Liberty County. The Bucs are attempting to work out an exhibition game. Dig Pink for breast cancer tonightGene Rafeld teams remain undefeated Roman Harrison celebrates a touchdown, knocking Sean Yowell to the ground with a chest bump.

COMMUNITY www.starfl.com BPage 1Section Thursday, October 20, 2011Special to The Star October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. Last week, Pam Martin and Debbie Ashbrook, co-directors of the Gulf County Domestic Violence Task Force, spoke at Gulf County High Schools in the HOPE classes taught by Rachel Crews in Port St Joe and Dennis Kizziah in Wewahitchka. They shared personal stories of abuse, showed a video and talked about the importance of choices in relationships. Over 200 students learned the warning signs of abuse and how they can make better decisions. They also learned how self esteem plays a critical role in the development of their relationships. Crews, having taught for over 35 years, said she felt this is an important topic and well delivered. Martin and Ashbrook are planning a follow up visit to both schools and are considering an ongoing support group. The Gulf County Domestic Task Force is a local organization whose mission is to stop domestic violence in Gulf County through education, working with law enforcement and government agencies as well as providing counseling and emergency aid to victims. If you need a speaker for your organization call the ofce at 229-2901. Check out their website www.gcdv. org. By Tim Croft Star News Editor Over the next two weekends even the good guys best be scared of the Gulf County Sheriffs Ofce. Starting this Saturday and continuing the next the GCSO will spend a third straight year inhabiting the old Comforter Funeral Home in Wewahitchka for its Haunted House. The nights are scarefests as well as fundraisers, with the Haunted House beneting the Wewa Food Bank as well as an effort to provide warm clothing to local children as the holiday season and cooler temperatures approach. The reason we do it is what we do if for, said Capt. Greg Cole of the GCSO. To provide for those who might not be as fortunate this holiday season, with food, warm clothing and things like that. This is not only a food drive, but also a drive for warm clothing. The planning for the Haunted House, Cole said, begins in August. Sgt. Rita Piercy begins to map out the house and how theyre going to scare the dickens out of all who enter. It is known as the House of Horrors for a reason and Cole, known as Bones for his work with cadaver dogs for the department, carries the nickname with him into planning for the Haunted House. Our goal is for them to run when they leave, Cole said with a laugh. It is a true Haunted House. This is our third year and it has proved so popular just because it is pretty frightening. Therefore, parents of wee ones, beware; Cole cautions this is a Haunted House for the older children. Parts of it are pretty intense, Cole said with a smile. From 6 p.m. CT until over the next two Saturdays, Cole and Piercy, have invited all the ghosts and spirits of the night to inhabit the old funeral home at the corner of Chipola Street and State 711. In addition to the shakes and shivers of fright, hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn and drinks will be sold. Admission for adults is $2 plus a canned good; for children 10 and under the cost is $1 plus a canned good. All canned goods will go directly to the Wewa Food Bank. A lot of Haunted Houses are very expensive, and we went up a little bit this year, but the need is greater and we are just trying to provide for those who need it during the holiday season, Cole said. Ours is not very expensive. We try to set the price so we can meet the need. By Valerie Garman Star Staff Writer David Andrews ended the day with a new briefcase, personalized business cards and an invaluable experience. In partnership with Gulf County Association of Retarded Citizens (ARC), business leaders across Gulf County welcomed Andrews and other eager mentees as a part of Disability Mentoring Day on Oct. 13. Andrews shadowed Vision Bank Vice President Johanna White for the day, making trips to the bank, the Port Authority Ofce and the Novak Law Ofces, where County Attorney Jeremy Novak presented Andrews with his own briefcase and business cards. David is a businessman, he loves everything business, said White, who noted that the experience is valuable at both ends. This is by far the most rewarding thing to be able to do. Congress designated October National Disability Employment Awareness Month in 1945, and Disability Mentoring Day connects thousands of mentors and mentees worldwide each year. This is the second year the Gulf County ARC has participated in Disability Mentoring Day. Last year, every county in Florida participated for the rst time. Its a rewarding experience for the mentee, but once its done and said its a really rewarding experience for the mentor, said Dianna Harrison, administrator of the Gulf County ARC. I was very impressed with the businesses in the community that were open to being a mentor. The ARC offers vocational and residential programs to their clients, and works in partnership with the Bridge Program at Gulf County Schools. Albert Scheffer spent the day mentoring with Superintendent of Schools Jim Norton. Scheffer is an assistant physical education coach at the Port St. Joe Schools and also helps in the cafeteria. Hes a real success story for the school system and for us, Harrison said. Everybody knows Albert and everybody loves him. Harrison said the ARCs ultimate goal is to assimilate its clients into society, with a Disability Mentoring Day. Its an opportunity for the mentees to feel like theyre a normal part of society, Harrison said. Our big focus for the clients we serve is we try to give them the most normal life possible. We do whatever it takes to make them an integral part of the community. One of the integral goals of Disability Mentoring Day is to break the barriers and misconceptions that often keep people with disabilities from being hired. Amanda Baker is a living example of overcoming the obstacles of a disability. Baker spoke to the mentors and mentees at a lunch reception about the importance of employment and equal opportunities for the disabled. (Being employed) gives you more control over your own lives more choices, more control over your money. Baker said. It gives you a purpose. It lets you know that when you get up every day you have a job to do, and everybody is counting on you to do that job. Baker graduated in 2005 from Florida State University with a communications degree and entered the workforce in 2006. She encouraged her audience to try and overcome challenges and stay motivated when entering the workforce. For every person with a disability thats employed, it tears down that stereotype just a little bit more, Baker said. My big thing is inclusion, and a big part of that is employment. By Tim Croft Star News Editor The exterior to the Port St. Joe Junior/Senior High School gym is in need of a facelift. The district has the idea to memorialize community greats to get the job done. The brainchild of Superintendent of Schools Jim Norton, Port St. Joe Junior/Senior High and Gulf District Schools has launched a Brick Paver Campaign to apply some polish to the exterior of the R. Marion Craig Coliseum. In keeping with the theme of Nortons new tenure as superintendent, the idea is to improve community schools by soliciting community buy-in. The project also has more straightforward goals. One is to make clear to those unfamiliar with The Dome exactly what entrance to use, accomplishing that by replacing the current awning with a uniform, or uni-brow, banner, restoring the old exterior ticket ofce through which fans purchased tickets, performing some landscaping improvements and creating a honor brick pathway to the entrance/exit. The vision is for outof-town visitors, who dont understand where to enter, because it can be confusing now, to now understand where to enter, said Melissa Ramsey, who is spearheading the project from the district ofce. We wanted to highlight one central area. After entering, fans will travel directly down the hallway that contains the plaques honoring those who have been inducted into the Port St. Joe High School Athletic Hall of Fame. The brick paver project is designed to put down a pathway of decorative bricks honoring community fans of Port St. Joe athletics to replace the existing chipped concrete while improving aesthetics and creating another brand of hall of fame. We want it to be a memorial to honor the people or organizations who have been supporters of the school, Ramsey said. So far we have a great response. The hope is to sell 100200 paver bricks by Nov. 4 in order to begin the project in mid-November, Ramsey said. The pathway bricks that are not honor bricks when the walkway is constructed will easily pop out to allow the campaign to continue in the future. As honor bricks are sold, empty bricks will be popped out and replaced by honor bricks, Ramsey said. As currently designed, the walkway could contain more than 3,800 bricks. Hopefully these bricks will be there forever and this will continue in future years, Ramsey said. The aim is that the sale of bricks will cover most if not all the cost of the project. Paver or honor bricks are $100 and can be purchased for any dedication, be In Honor or In Memory of someone special or someone who has been a particular supporter of Tiger Shark athletics. For example, the family of the late Paul Sewell has already signed up for a brick to honor a man who followed Port St. Joe High School sports like a second family, honored by the state several years ago for attending 50 straight state high school basketball nals. He is a great example, Ramsey said. He celebrated their wins and their losses for so many years. This is what this (paver project) is for. Paver bricks can have up to three lines and 18 characters per line (counting spaces as characters). Checks should be made payable to Port St. Joe High School and submitted to Karen Taylor at the high school. For more information on the project contact Ramsey at 229-6940 or Taylor at 229-8251.

By Gabby Pittman and Kristen DunhamGeneral information Mrs. Thompson has updated pages on the school website to include class information, pictures, videos, and needs. Thirteen cadets from our NJROTC traveled to Panama City on Sunday, Oct. 9 to support the Delta Raider Company at the Clifford Sims Veteran Home. The Delta Raider Company is the unit that SSGT Clifford C. Sims was assigned to when he courageously gave his life for his fellow soldiers during the Vietnam Conflict. SSGT Sims was awarded the Medal of Honor for his brave and selfless act, and on Oct. 9, he was remembered by his company mates. The NJROTC was honored to be a small part of this ceremony. Plans are in the works for our PSJ Schools T-Shirt Quit raffle. Tickets go on sale this Saturday and sales will run through Nov. 22. The drawing will be held on Nov. 23.

The merger of 7th and 8th grades with the high school classes has progressed very smoothly. The rst quarter ended last week with report cards going home Oct. 28. We have a new math teacher on faculty, Ms. Genevieve Baughman. The learning media center has taken on a new look with a new media specialist, Ms. Micah Peak. The WHS food service program has a new manager, Ms. Becky Hamm. The lunchroom now provides a la carte items such as pizza, salad, and assorted sandwiches in addition to the regular lunch menu. We also now have a breakfast program, which has been a big success. Everyone is looking forward to a great year. Please get involved and be part of that Gator Pride. Giving back to the school and community plays an integral role to the 21-member organization of National Honor Society. The juniors and seniors invest their time on several service projects throughout the school year. One ongoing project is offering tutoring services to all WHS students. NHS members make themselves available before and after school each day to assist students with homework or class assignments. It is an exciting opportunity for all involved to learn and grow academically. Another service activity NHS will continue is the long-standing tradition of Adopt-a-Highway. Numerous volunteer hours will be dedicated this school year in beautifying roadsides along State highways 22 and 71. The Student Government Association of Wewahitchka High School is proud to announce the activities for Homecoming 2011. Students will be participating in Homecoming Week activities from Oct. 24-28 this year. The theme for Homecoming this year is TV shows. Students will participate in dress up days, oat construction, and door decorating activities. All alumni that graduated in years ending in 1 and 6 are invited to attend the Homecoming Brunch on Friday, Oct. 28, beginning at 10 a.m. CT. The week will conclude with the crowning of the 2011 Homecoming King and Queen Friday night at 6:30 p.m. CT before the last home football game of the year, where the Gators will take on the Bozeman Bucks beginning at 7 p.m. Please join us for this annual event. Students from Wewahitchka High School and Wewahitchka Elementary school S.W.A.T. programs presented an educational program to the Gulf County Commissioners at their meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 27. The students discussed the dangers of candy avored tobacco. The students were successful in their endeavor to have the commissioners pass a resolution urging tobacco retailers to stop the sale and marketing of candy avored tobacco products in Gulf County. This is HUGE for our students. Through thorough research, they were able to present staggering statistics about the use of tobacco products among children and youth. We are so proud of our S.W.A.T. (Students Working against Tobacco) students. At times, Wewahitchka High seems more like a community college than a high school. With four dual enrollment college classes currently meeting, including Biology I, western civilization, college algebra and English 1101, students in grades ten through twelve are able to get a serious jump start on their associates degree. Free books and tuition signicantly sweeten this deal and many students are taking advantage of the joint venture between Wewahitchka High and Gulf Coast State College. FCAT re-takes took place last week and in order to help our students with their reading, writing and (most importantly) thinking skills, Principal Debbie Baxley implemented a Reading/Writing connection across the curriculum. In each class, from carpentry to computer science, students complete a weekly project that requires them to read a passage, think critically about the composition, and then write about what they learned. Ms. Baxley feels condent that the students taking re-takes, as well as those taking the regular FCAT in the spring, will benet greatly from the new program. Finally, students have shifted into high gear as the rst grading period neared its end. Finishing notebooks, research projects, and unit tests dominated the business of the day. We wish each student the best of luck on his conclusion of the rst nine-weeks.

Jean Mahon Little ObituariesIt is sad and frighteningIt is sad, and frightening. At least once a week, I meet someone who has been brainwashed by his/her religious leaders to consider only material produced and taught by his or her church or religion. They have been taught, Dont watch TV, or dont listen to the radio, dont read the paper, dont use the internet, and dont use any of the social networking sites, like Facebook, etc. What these leaders are essentially saying is, Dont allow yourself to be exposed to anything that might cause you to question, what you have been taught. All other teaching is of the Devil. If they come to your door, it is to try to entice you to become part of their Bible Study, or to go to their church in other words, become indoctrinated in their religion. Many years ago, I attended churches like this, and after it became obvious that their motivation was to control everything I did, and everything that I was to be exposed to, I started over. I recognized this for what it was an attempt at brainwashing. In 1985, after I was married, in a simple ceremony, without all the fanfare, my wife and I made two covenants, with each other, and with God. One covenant was to totally abstain from alcoholic beverages. The second covenant was to search out the truth about God, and what it takes to please Him. We have kept those covenants for over 26 years. We attended dozens of churches of many different beliefs, and found that all the churches were lacking in one or more teachings, when compared with what is taught in the writings of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. We quickly found that it is easy to take a few verses, here and there, and come up with a doctrine, that doesnt accurately reect what is conveyed, in the Bible as a whole, -and this is what they were doing. We found that Bible School training isnt much better, than the Bible Studies put on by the people, who come to your door. And the people who come out of these schools, end up thinking they know more than anyone else! We have done thousands of concordance searches, and read various Bibles, mostly the KJV and the NKJV -straight through, many times. We stopped counting at 20. We soon became convinced that we should concentrate on the teachings of Jesus. Jesus preached the Kingdom of God, and He sent others out to preach the Kingdom of God also. He didnt send them out to build great buildings, and ll them with people, and provide them with all sorts of programs. He sent them out to preach the Kingdom of God, heal the sick, cast out demons, and urge their listeners to become servants of God. 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.

SSomething to think aboutUntil recently, I have been proud to live in Port St. Joe. But its getting to the point thats just not so. St. Joe is not the same town that I grew up in. They cater more to tourists now, and the bars keep peddling their gin. The booze hounds keep signing their petitions to keep the commissioners at bay. The bars keep the booze hounds happy till they send them on their way. With the booze hounds full and cash registers too. I think its sad for the ones at home, think about it folks, dont you?

For centuries, the brilliant change of leaf colors each was surrounded by mystery and superstition. From Jack Frost to the blood of the great bear, almost every society had its own legend explaining the phenomenon. Today, plant scientists have nally unraveled the secret of fall coloration. We may not see the incredible burst of vivid fall leaf color our northern neighbors enjoy each year, but we do have enough temperate region plants in some parts of Florida to give us some seasonal changes in foliage hues. Even Floridians residing in the southern most portions of our state might like to know why the leaves of some trees and shrubs change color as the weather cools in northern areas. My information on fall leaf color was provided by Patrick Minogue, Forestry Specialist with the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences located at Quincy AREC. The brilliant display of autumn leaves is brought on by a combination of things falling temperatures, short days, and certain chemical substances called pigments found in leaf tissues. Some of the pigments that give autumn leaves their bright colors are actually present in the leaves as soon as they unfold in the spring. But, during spring and summer, when the plants are growing vigorously, a green-colored material called chlorophyll dominates the other leaf pigments. Chlorophyll plays an important role in a process called photosynthesis, the process by which plants capture energy from sunlight and manufacture food. Chlorophyll is produced in the leaves of most plants during their active growing season. But, in the fall, as plants get ready for dormancy, the production on new chlorophyll slows down. Finally it stops altogether, and theres no chlorophyll left in the leaves. When this happens, the other leaf pigments, those we mentioned earlier take over and you see the bright cool-season colors. Pigments called carotenoids make the leaves turn orange, red, yellow, and brown. Other pigments, called anthocynanins are developed because of the changing weather conditions. Bright, clear autumn days and cooler temperatures produce shades of red and purple in the leaves. Still another group of pigments, called Anthoxanthins, cause yellow coloring in some foliage. Even though Floridas landscape is not famous for brilliant fall color, there are plants in some areas that do change color with the season. Its a good idea to include a few of these in home plantings. Unlike most of the owering shrubs, which hold their blossoms for only a brief period, the trees and shrubs that turn color in the fall will usually retain their varied hues for a month or more, depending on the weather. Some of the trees which will add fall eye appeal to your landscape are the Golden rain-tree, Red Swap Myrtle, Dogwood, Sweet Gum, Crape Myrtle, Tulip tree, and Bradford Pear. Each of these has its own unique color, but these can change somewhat from year to year, according to seasonal conditions. However, choosing one or two of these plants will assure you of some fall change in foliage hues.

The run takes bikers on a coastal tour, starting at Honeyville Park in Wewahitchka and stopping at various parks and restaurants along scenic U.S. Highway 98, including Frank Pate Park, Toucans and The Runway Restaurant and Oyster Bar. Its a chance for people to get out and ride their bikes for good, said Pam Martin, who works for the Salvation Armys Domestic Violence Task Force. Its a beautiful trip through Mexico Beach and St. Joe Beach. Sign in is at 10 a.m. CT at Honeyville Park and last bike out is at 11 a.m. CT. The run will bring bikers back to Honeyville Park by 3 p.m. CT, in time for a free live concert during which local Wewahitchka musician Jerry Arhelger, who has recorded and written songs in Nashville, will be performing. There will also be door prizes, a 50/50 drawing and a bake sale at the event. Martin said the she encourages even those not planning on participating in the poker run to attend the concert. She also said you dont have to ride a motorcycle to participate in the poker run. The event costs $20 per driver, $10 for passengers and $5 for each additional hand. All proceeds will benet victims and children of domestic violence. Its really a lot of fun, Martin said. Its going to be a great day, and its for a good cause.

If youre not sure, just ask the fth-graders at Port St. Joe Elementary School. On Sept. 26 they participated in an annual eld trip, Ag Adventures Day, at the North Florida Research and Education Center in Quincy. Ag Adventures Day is designed to teach 4th-6th grade students in Northwest Florida about agriculture through hands-on learning. Each group of students (an estimated total of 900 for the entire week) rotated through a variety of Florida agriculture related booths taught by Extension Agents, Extension Researchers, and volunteers with topics ranging from pumpkins, peanuts, soybeans, cotton, corn, honey bees, and soil types. The eld trip began with a fun, morning ride on the gator wagon to the farm. As they learned about agricultural crops, the students were also given the chance to touch, smell, and even taste some of the products. Some of the students favorite things were to walk through the pumpkin eld, dig peanuts, pick cotton, and sample boiled and roasted peanuts and roasted pumpkin seeds. The fth-graders from Gulf County had a great day lled with handson, outdoor educational activities and they each got their own pumpkin to take home. Now that these students have had a little taste of Florida agriculture we hope they will share their knowledge with their family, friends, and neighbors. Learning about agriculture helps them understand the link between food growing in a eld and what they see in the grocery store. This understanding is becoming more important with changing times. This annual program is sponsored by the Gulf County Extension Ofce, UF/IFAS Extension, 4-H, Florida Farm Bureau, University of Florida, Florida Ag in the Classroom, and Farm Credit of Northwest Florida. We want to say a special thank you to everyone who made this fun-lled experience possible. 4-H is a youth development program for youth ages 8-18 that is assisted greatly by adult volunteers. If you are interested in participating as a 4-Her or an adult volunteer please contact Melanie Taylor at the Gulf County Extension Ofce. She may be reached at 639-3200, 229-2909, or metaylor@u.edu. 4-H is more than you ever imagined. Come join the fun!
