St. Joe, Port Authority sign development agreement


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
There was, said Port Au-
thority chairwoman Johan-
na White and Jorge Gonza-
lez, vice president for the
St. Joe Company, no ability
to erase history.
There was only the fu-
ture to shape.
And the shape of that fu-
ture came into a bit bright-
er contrast on Jan. 19 when
the Port Authority and St.
Joe Company formally
signed and entered into a


Memorandum of Under-
standing (MOU) that pro-
vides a framework for col-
laboration on development
of the Port of Port St. Joe.
"We have talked about
this and talked about part-
nering for many, many
years," White said during
a special meeting held Jan.
19 for the formal signing of
the MOU. "We are excited
about this. This is a good
day, a new day, a new time
and a good future ahead."
The MOU reflects a
change of focus coming

from the new regime at
the St. Joe Company. The
company and Port Author-
ity had long been at log-


gerheads regarding port
development and how that
should occur.
The company and Port


Authority entered into a
lease agreement for land
north of the old mill site on
which the Port Authority
hoped to develop deepwa-
ter commerce capabilities,
however, unable to meet
lease payments, that land
was ultimately returned to
St. Joe.
Years of talks seemed to
have gone nowhere.
However, with the Port
Authority since having
acquired the old Arizona
Chemical land through a
donation combined with a


change in focus within the
executive suite at St. Joe,
there was suddenly com-
mon ground for moving for-
ward to develop the port.
"There has been a lot
of history, but we can only
look forward," said Gonza-
lez during a special meet-
ing of the Port Authority
during which the MOU was
taken up for consideration.
"Two things have definitely
changed for us.

Preparing




for the




worst

Star StaffWriter
Camille in 1969, Hugo in 1989, Andrew in 1992,
Katrina in 2004.
These are among the most devastating hur-
ricanes to ever hit the United States, with storm
surges more than 20 feet high and wind gusts up
to 200 miles per hour.
"I can't sit here and tell you what a direct
landfall (hurricane) would do," said Marshall
Nelson, Gulf County Emergency Management
Director. "We have not seen in Gulf County what
is possible."
But Nelson knows it can happen, and the
county emergency operations center is taking
steps to be prepared for the worst.
Gulf County has been chosen to take part in
a specialized training program designed to give
small communities the backbone needed to suf-
ficiently handle disaster situations.
The Florida Governor's Hurricane Confer-
ence chooses one community per year to fund
Small Community Integrated Emergency Man-
agement Force training. Gulf County is the third
community in the state to receive the training,
behind only Dixie County and Tarpon Springs.
A meeting was held Jan. 30 to discuss the
logistics of the training, which will take place in
late March.
The training will focus on six response capa-
bility mission targets: Public information and
warning, operational coordination, infrastruc-
ture systems, mass care services, on scene se-
curity and protection and situational awareness.

Erosion on Cape San Bias presenting problems, concerns


By Valerie Gorman
Star StaffWriter
A unique area brings
unique problems.
The seventeen mile bar-
rier peninsula of Cape San
Blas offers one of the most
distinctive natural land-
scapes around, but its beau-
ty also brings Gulf County
the burden of protecting it.
According to a 2009 study
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection, Cape San Blas is the
most rapidly eroding beach
in Florida, becoming a thin-
ner peninsula everyday.
"We've got a lot of prob-
lems out there," said County
Administrator Don Butler,
who is in the midst of lead-
ing the county through an

effort to lobby Congress to
remove Cape San Blas's
Coastal Barrier Resources
Area (CBRA) designation, a
designation that has halted
beach nourishment projects
in the area.
Designed to discourage
building on the Cape, the
CBRA designation specifies
that no federal funds can be
earmarked for the area, in-
cluding assistance from the
Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA)
and federal flood insurance
for property owners.
The county has been bat-
tling to remove the designa-
tion since a $22 million beach
restoration project went
awry in 2008 after Hurricane
Gustav swept through the
area, taking with it $15 mil-

lion of sand and damages.
FEMA initially agreed to
help restore the damages,
but later retracted because
of the area's designation.
"Not only had the people
been wronged by this des-
ignation, but somebody's
house is going to be dam-
aged again," Butler said.
"Those people, they've had
a rough time."
With 25 percent of the
county's tax base on the
Cape, Butler said it is a
cause worth fighting for.
"They pay a lot of taxes
and they deserve as much
assistance as they can get,"
Butler said. "That's why the
county is willing to put out
some money."
Half of the 2008 restora-
tion was being funded by


the state, the other half by
area landowners, who chose
to tax themselves to meet
bond payments on the local
match for state funding.
"Everyone agrees it paid
to renourish the beach (last
time)," Butler said. "It's
cheaper to renourish than
to lose all that (property)
value."
According to the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service, to
acquire a CBRA designation
an area must have less than
one structure per five acres
of land and the absence of
a "full suite of existing in-
frastructure consisting of a
road with a reinforced road
bed, wastewater disposal
system, electric service, and

"It's all about support-
ing and encouraging emer-
gency preparedness in the
state of Florida," said Jim
Groves, a former EMS di-
rector who will help lead the
county through the training
process. "The training is
designed so that communi-
ties have the ability to bet-
ter (their response) when a
disaster strikes."
After two days of class-
room training, skills are put
into practice during a storm
simulation that will test the
capabilities of each agency.
"We make the commu-
nity feel like they're deal-
ing with the actual event
outside," Groves said. "We
expect there to be shortfalls.
That's the whole purpose of
the program."
Groves said the program
will give the county a self-
check and answer ques-
tions like: is this the best ap-
proach? Should we modify
anything? Do we need addi-
tional training?
"It's been incredible,"
Groves said of the program's


outcome. "There are a lot of
very positive outcomes to
participating in this."
Groves said the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) is push-
ing a community approach
to disaster preparedness
across the country, making
sure everyone from the indi-
vidual to the federal agency
is prepared.
"We feel very fortunate,"
Nelson said. "This is the best
of the best training. We're
very excited to have the op-
portunity to get this level of
training."
Nelson said he hopes to
have the department fully
prepared before hurricane
season.
"In anyone's lifetime
here, a (category one hur-
ricane) is probably the larg-
est storm that's hit," Nelson
said. "A lot of people say,'Oh,
we've been through it.' No
you haven't."
Nelson referenced the
devastation Southwest Flor-
ida faced during Hurricane
Charley in 2004 when many


emergency communications
towers buckled.
"I'm telling you, it can
happen," Nelson said. "You
thinkyou're ready but you're
not."
Nelson said due to county
budget cuts, the emergency
management department
lost a lot of experienced per-
sonnel, and now they are try-
ing to get back at that same
level of training.
"We need to train our
people first," Nelson said,
referring to Gulf County's
emergency management
personnel, law enforcement
officers, fire departments
and search and rescue
teams. "There are a lot of
groups that need to be at the
table and hopefully they will
be when it comes time for
training."
"What it all boils down
to is this core group here
- How are you going to uti-
lize these people? That core
group is the one that's going
to be here. That's why I'm
trying to get these people
trained."


Gingrich tops Romney in Gulf County


Florida Freedom Newspapers

While Mitt Romney won
the Florida Republican
nomination with 46 percent
of the vote, in Gulf County it
was Newt Gingrich who took
the majority of votes cast.
The Gulf County results
put Newt Gingrich with 49
percent of the vote, Romney
with 28 percent, Rick San-
torum with 18 percent and
Ron Paul with 5 percent.
Gingrich garnered a to-
tal of 664 votes to Romney's
376.
Of the 3,312 registered
Republicans in Gulf County,
only 1,358 total votes were
cast in the primary election,
about 41 percent.
Gingrich won the major-


ity of votes in 34 of Florida's
67 counties, with Romney
winning the remaining 33.
Gingrich secured most
of the Panhandle counties,
with the exception of the
larger counties of Bay, Oka-
loosa and Leon casting sup-
port for Romney
Gingrich also won big in
Calhoun County, collecting
286 votes to Romney's 180.
The same results echoed in
Franklin County, where Gin-
grich captured 48 percent of
the vote. In Holmes County
it was much the same, with
Gingrich capturing 51 per-
cent of votes.
Other surrounding coun-
ties including Jackson,
Washington and Walton
counties also cast support


for Gingrich.
In Washington County,
voters passed a county-
wide referendum to al-
low slot machines at Ebro
Greyhound Park on Tues-
day night. The referendum
passed with 57 percent of
voters in favor.
However, plans for the
Ebro Greyhound Park call
for more than simply addi-
tional gaming options. It's
part of a proposed expan-
sion of the park into a $300
million resort hotel and
entertainment center that
would include 300 to 500
hotel rooms, retail, restau-
rants and an entertainment
venue, said Stockton Hess,
owner of the park, and his
son, Mark Hess.

PORT from page Al


made a change on how we
are looking at the mill site
asset. At one time that was
to be a residential develop-
ment. Now we see it as an
economic engine for job
creation. We also want to
work collaboratively with
the Port Authority. The fo-
cus should be on bringing
jobs to the community. It
doesn't make sense to do
that separately or with an
adversarial relationship."
The public/private part-
nership is exactly what
Florida Secretary of Trans-
portation Ananth Parsad
suggested when state offi-
cials toured the port facility
and surrounding land last
fall. At the time, Parsad
said the St. Joe Company
would offer an ideal fit.
Gov Rick Scott has also
championed ports in the
state Port St. Joe's is one
of 14 congressionally au-
thorized deepwater ports
in Florida as drivers for
the job creation he made
a central component of his
campaign and efforts in of-
fice.
"This is an exciting day
for the region," said Ralph
Yoder with the FDOT.
"From an infrastructure
standpoint we are ready to
be a partner in finding solu-
tions. This is a partnership
that will have impacts for
the entire region."
The MOU sets forth no
formal agreement, but pro-
vides the framework for the
Port Authority and St. Joe
to proceed with port devel-
opment as partners and is
a step toward future agree-
ments on specific projects,
marketing of the port and


strategies for port develop-
ment.
"This is great," said
Barry Sellers, executive
director of the Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce. "I
wasn't privy to the history.
All that is behind us. It's a
new day in Port St. Joe. We
are going to work together
to bring jobs to this com-
munity.
"That port is the reason
I am here. That port is the
future of both the region
and the community."
The MOU sets forth that
the Port Authority and St.
Joe have a mutual interest
in promoting economic de-
velopment for the commu-
nity and county; that each
party possesses property
and other assets to further
port development; that
the two have a meeting of
minds on the importance
of working collaboratively;
that such a public/private
partnership is part of the
port master plan; and that
the MOU is executed for
the sole purpose to express
the mutual intent of the
parties to collaborate.
The MOU has a term of
12 months and no addition-
al action or commitment is
required until more defini-
tive agreements) are en-
tered into by the parties.
"This is a framework of
an expression to work col-
laboratively and a frame-
work for moving forward,"
Gonzalez said. "We will
have subsequent and de-
tailed agreements. We can
leverage property as one
big dot, with both our prop-
erty and (the Port Author-
ity's)."


White said St. Joe would
be announcing a project
pertaining to the port with-
in the next couple of weeks
and the Port Authority is in
serious negotiations with
at least two potential ten-
ants for the barge termi-
nal along the Intracoastal
Waterway, part of the 100
acres the Port Authority
owns.
While a new day, the
parties expressed an in-
terest in tamping immedi-
ate expectations.
Given information from
years of visioning about
the port's future, capital
will be needed to restore
the bulkhead on the old
mill site. There is also the
issue of the shipping chan-
nel, what kind of shape it is
in and what hurdles would
have to be cleared to have
it dredged to its authorized
35 feet, if necessary.
And deepwater port de-
velopment will not be in-
expensive and will require
capital outlay, an area
where the Port Author-
ity can offer assets on the
table.
As a special district,
and with the MOU now in
place, the port's ability to
lure grant dollars already
a plus for the Port Author-
ity is likely enhanced, said
Tommy Pitts, executive di-
rector of the Port Author-
ity.
"I think that is what
we can really bring to the
table," said Port Author-

ity board member Leonard
Costin.
Under the MOU the St.
Joe Company will also offer
assistance and options to
address the Port Authority's
current debt obligations as
well as providing strategic
leadership in marketing
and developing the port.
"We are excited about
it," Gonzalez said, adding
that one key way St. Joe will
assess options for port de-
velopment is by "listening


to customers." "We love the
partnership. The only thing
that matters to us is being
able to deliver (business at
the port and jobs)."
County commission
chair Bill Williams said the
focus on actually putting
action to words, given the
years of discussion about
the port, which Williams
said had been similar to a
roller coaster ride, "was ex-
cellent."
The MOU also sets out


that the parties will work to-
gether on port development,
marketing and promotion of
the port and master plan-
ning efforts for the port. The
sides will also cooperate in
pursuing public dollars for
port development "and re-
lated industrial and com-
mercial activities."
"This is a wonderful op-
portunity for us," said Port
Authority board member
Patrick Jones. "It is up to
us to take advantage of it."

Back before Mama
passed away, we enjoyed
going to the "feed &
seed" store when I visited
her. Roanoke, Ala., has
a wonderful store right
downtown. They have feed,
seed, all kinds of
insecticides and
other "cides,"
clothes, canned
goods, cast iron
stuff boots, John ,
Deere toys and
hats, and in the fall,
they have pecans. CRAN
They also have TRA(
a couple of cute BN T
girls working
there they are good for
business.
On our last trip into
M.L. Awbrey's store, Mama
bought me a lined denim
jacket for my birthday,
I've always wanted one.
We did a lot of piddling;
feed and seed stores are
good for piddling. After
looking at clothes, cast
iron, Christmas ornaments
and canned goods, we
wandered up to the counter
to study the pecans.
Mr. Awbrey buys, sells
and cracks pecans. He has
the machinery out back
in one of his warehouses
to crack and shell them.
I watched the machines
work; it's a fun thing to
watch and study.
The first thing I noticed
about the pecans was the
price they are expensive,
particularly the shelled
ones. If you have ever sat
down and cracked, shelled
and picked the meat out
of a batch of pecans, you
understand the labor
involved to do it by hand.
At the counter, there
were two large aluminum
cans filled with pecans still
in the shell. The can on the
left contained the "Local
Stuarts" that sold for $2.99
a pound and the can on
the right contained the
"Desirables" that sold for
$4.75/pound. Shelled, they
are $10.95 per pound.
What are Desirables
when it comes to pecans?
Well, they are elliptic
with an obtuse apex and
obtuse to rounded base;
round in the cross section;
shell rough, with elevated
suture, 54 percent kernel,
kernels golden in color,
with wide dorsal grooves.
They are ones in the
aluminum can marked
"Desirables," that you
trust Mr. Awbrey to label
correctly. They are better
than the "Local Stuarts"
by $1.75 per pound in the
shell. The two cute girls at
the counter said they are
"better."
I will accept that. Mama
accepted that. She paid
$1.50 for a handful of the
unshelled Desirables; she
said she was just going to
look at them. After Mama
died, I found that little bag
of pecans and took them
home with me. I'll just look
at them and think of her.

when it comes to people?
We all want "desirable
friends" for ourselves and
for our children, but what
makes them desirable?
What makes us really need
them?
First of all, I
would say find
Sour instructions
Sin "The Book"
The Bible gives
excellent advice
when it comes to
seeking, identifying
(S MY and keeping
TOR desirable friends.
eard This is similar to
pecans. You want
to crack them, shell them
to see what's on the inside
and keep the good ones.
The Book of Proverbs
is filled with advice when it
comes to desirable friends.
"The righteous choose
their friends carefully, but
the way of the wicked leads
them astray."
I got it on that one. If
my children or I don't pick
friends wisely, they could
be a bad influence on us.
Our friends could also have
a lot of good influence in
our lives that would be
the desirable ones.
Proverbs 17:17 tells
us that, "a friend loves at
all times..." I understand
that a desirable friend is
there when times are good
and bad.
You will also find in
Proverbs that these
desirable friends give you
good advice; they make you
better and stand by you.
They stand by you when
you are in troubled times,
I know it says that in The
Book also. I'm not sure
where, but somewhere it
says that "Two are better
than one."
With a desirable friend,
you are no longer alone
-you are TWO.
I guess this explains the
dust on the "Local Stuart"
pecans. If you are given a
choice between a "Local
Stuart" and a "Desirable,"
you have no choice. Even
though the cost is more,
the taste/result is better.
Just like the cute girls at
the counter said, "They're
just better."
I would like to say that
desirable friends are way
better- they are indeed,
"The Best."
Mama and I eased
out the backdoor with a
bag from M.L. Awbrey's
containing two pair of blue
jeans, a lined denim jacket,
a big jar of spiced peaches,
a bag of walnuts and a
handful of Desirables.
A handful of Desirables
are better than a whole
aluminum trash can of
Local Stuarts.
There was a brindle cat
in the parking lot out back,
he meowed "Good bye."
I didn't realize it would
be our last trip together. It
was a good one!

Keyboard KLATTERINGS


Measured expectations


The Memorandum of
Understanding (MOU) signed recently
by the Port Authority and the St. Joe
Company was a long time coming.
A decade in the coming.
It seems fitting that a MOU to
collaborate on developing the port
comes almost a decade since visioning
workshops on the
future of the port
began between the
city of Port St. Joe, the
St. Joe Company and
Port Authority.
And as is clear
now much of that was
TIM CROFT an exercise in futility
Star news editor and crafting public
opinion.
The previous regimes at St. Joe
seemed more interested in building
residential properties on the old
paper mill site to feed what was then
a booming real estate market than
consider any port activity.
The decision to ultimately lease the
Port Authority land north of the mill
site, land without easy access to the
congressionally authorized shipping
channel or the turning basin, was
tossing bones at a hungry dog.
That lease arrangement was
destined to crash as the Port Authority
had little hope of generating the
revenue, given the constraints of the
parcel of land offered by St. Joe, to
meet lease payments.
No real surprise, then, that
eventually the Port Authority returned
the land to St. Joe.
Consider that bit of land card
Monte with the Jan. 19 signing of the
MOU setting down parameters for
collaboration on developing the port.
The land lease agreement was
signed five or six years ago amid
fanfare during a public outdoor
ceremony with speech making about a
new day, a new era and talk about what
the port once was and could be again.
Two weeks ago, the MOU was
signed in the meeting room of the Port
Authority, with the bare minimum of
public notice and knowledge.
That could be read as a sign
that while the MOU represents a
significant change in direction for the


St. Joe Company, jobs are not going to
magically appear next Monday.
But the bottom line is the MOU
represents a new era for St. Joe, one
highlighted in the past week as the
company announced a shift in focus
on its real estate strategy.
That there is a realization in the
executive suite that the company has
much to benefit by developing the Port
of Port St. Joe, and that realizing that
goal will require a partner or more
likely partners, including the Port
Authority, is indeed a breath of fresh air.
That the company put to writing
and committed to this spirit of
cooperation is refreshing after
nearly a decade of what County
Commissioner Bill Williams described
as a roller coaster.
That MOU is another indication
that the stars seem to be aligning for
the port.
Gov Rick Scott has made ports
a centerpiece of job creation since
entering office and talked up the Port
of Port St. Joe during an interview
here last year. The Secretary of
ITransportation and other state
officials visited the port facilities last
year and spoke of its potential and
need for private partners.
The port master plan, on a timeline
for an update, now represents a
clean slate from which to launch
development plans. While there has
been some sand accretion in the
shipping channel, a 2011 report from
the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
indicated the channel was in decent
shape and could likely handle ships
with drafts up to 25 feet.
The Port of Port St. Joe is also well
positioned given that the closest port,
the Port of Panama City, is nearing
capacity. A 2006 MOU from the Port
of Panama City lent its support to
maritime activities in Port St. Joe.
Ports in Fernandina Beach and
Jacksonville, 20 miles apart, thrive
because they do not compete for the
same cargo.
There is certainly enlightened
self-interest for St. Joe. The company
owns much of the land that would
make up a developed port as a
St. Joe official told Port Authority


members it only makes sense to
market each other's land holdings
jointly.
Also, in addition to the potential
of the port to spur regional economic
development the Apalachee
Regional Planning Council sees
the Port of Port St. Joe as the key
to unlocking the region's economic
potential St. Joe owns much of the
land on either side of the Gulf County
Canal and the Inland Waterway, all the
way to East Bay, more than 20 miles.
An operational port has the
potential of unlocking considerable
value from those holdings. A port
might not be a money bonanza
initially, but those lands will suddenly
have much more appeal with a
thriving port.
But all that said, nothing is going to
happen tomorrow or the day after.
Investment will be needed to
restore the old mill site bulkhead
and make the infrastructure
improvements necessary to create
the one dot on the map St. Joe officials
discussed with the Port Authority,
combining St. Joe and port land into a
300-acre or so facility driving jobs.
There are also hurdles concerning
dredging the shipping channel. This
will be no overnight sensation.
But the signing of the MOU indeed
represents a welcome milestone in
relations with St. Joe.
Only after the 12 months, the
length of the MOU, will the reality
become clear.
An important aspect for this
partnership will be public support.
Yes, as a St. Joe official said,
delivering jobs is key, but over the next
year and beyond the Port Authority
must be transparent and accountable.
There are responsibilities as a special
district under the Sunshine Law.
And the public wants to see that
new leadership at St. Joe has a new
attitude toward a community from
which the company took a name and
which served the company, in prior
permutations, for decades.
The MOU will not pay dividends
until down the road; but right now it
casts the port's potential in a whole
new light.


Missed it by 35 miles


We were talking this
week about life's biggest
disappointments. Someone
mentioned that I seemed
"mostly upbeat everyday"
and by context I gathered
they felt my life
held few regrets.
Boy howdy, little do
they know!
I had a chance
in 1960 to ride down
to Florence, Ala.,
and hear Melba HUI
Montgomery sing DC
in person. She and Kese
her brother Carl esle
had a little band and they'd
play just about anywhere
they could gather up a
crowd. They were not
stars mind you, they were
just starting out but word
was already spreading
about Melba's voice. Uncle
Womack "reckoned" the
tires on his old pick-up
could make the trip and we
figured tickets wouldn't be
too hard to come by. The
downtown movie theatre
in Florence wasn't exactly
Carnegie Hall.
Barbara or Teresa, I
can't remember which one
of my cousins, took sick
and Uncle Womack had
to use the truck to take
them into Lawrenceburg.
Shucks, I wasn't old
enough to drive. Uncle
Clifford had cows to attend
to. Pa and Gran didn't own
a vehicle. Uncle Hugh was
away on business. Mom
and Dad liked Carl Smith
and Patsy Cline. And, they
reasoned, we had "come
over" to visit kinfolks and
it would be rude "to drive
off down to Florence".
I let it go. I was young
and figured I had plenty
of time. Besides, Florence
wasn't but about thirty-


N
N

y


five miles straight down
highway 43. Barbara and
Teresa couldn't be sick
forever. We would catch
the Melba Montgomery
show later.
Didn't none of
us figure on the
Pet Milk Contest!
I never did
know all the
details. Pet Milk
"back then" did
KER a lot of sponsor
S work on the world
N C famous Grand Ole
Opry and country
music in general. They put
on some kind of singing
contest where local and
regional winners ended
up in a big sing-off in
Nashville. Melba, naturally,
zoomed right up through
those competitions like
Sherman heading to
Savannah. I don't know if
she won the grand prize
up in Nashville but she
finished high enough to
impress Roy Acuff, who
hired her to sing with him.
The price and
opportunity to see Melba
Montgomery in person
took a gigantic leap
upward. She took off
almost immediately on a
USO tour overseas with
Roy, Cousin Oswald and
a host of other country
giants. I knew in my little
heart she wasn't going to
be back at the Florence
downtown theatre
anytime soon. Every time
I see Barbara or Teresa I
remind them that they got
over the whooping cough-
I wasn't so lucky where
Melba was concerned.
I was in high school
when Melba and George
Jones came out with "We
Must Have Been Out


of Our Minds". Without
question one of the
greatest duet songs ever!
And I think Melba even
wrote the thing. Listen, it
was head and shoulders
above the stuff George did
later with Tammy Wynette.
The first time I heard it
was on that old jukebox
up at the City Cafe. I'm
telling you, I kicked myself
all the way home! You talk
about missed chances!
Every time we visited in
Lawrenceburg (which was
every 'vacation', birthday,
holiday, etc.) I was a lousy
thirty-five miles away! I
could have hitch-hitched.
Uncle Clifford had an old
mule. I could have walked!
Melba was playing
Nashville, Las Vegas,
Detroit, the Iowa State
Fair..... I was throwing
rocks in Sugar Creek with
my cousins. I had missed
my chance forever to tell
her how much I liked that
natural "Wanda Jackson
honky tonk edge" she put
into every song. I'll never
know if she was playing a
Gibson Hummingbird or
a Martin D-45. I should be
throwing these rocks at
Teresa!
George Jones, Johnny
Paycheck, Melba and
some others did a show in
Huntsville, Alabama, when
I was in college. Of course
I had no money. And no
car. And it was a heck of
a lot further to Huntsville
than Lawrenceburg was
to Florence! And to really
put the cork in the bottle,
it was in the middle of the
baseball season. I could see
myself bopping up to Coach
Shirley Majors and saying,
"Hey Coach, I'm going to
miss the Washington and


Lee game, I've got to run
down to Huntsville." But
I'm telling you with my
hand up it did cross my
mind to quit school and
steal Tim Peters' car!
I went to Nashville in
1968 and finagled a job
at the Grand Ole Opry in
hopes of meeting Melba
Montgomery. I went down
there every Saturday night
for thirteen weeks in a row.
You can't believe how nice
Loretta Lynn was. Dolly
Parton was so quiet and
shy at that time. Connie
Smith was drop dead
gorgeous! Jean Sheppard
was such a talent. And let
me clear up something I
said a little earlier. Tammy
Wynette sang that summer
just as good as you could
ever hope to hear......but
wasn't none of them Melba
Montgomery! They all
knew Melba. They said she
was a heck of a nice person.
They all promised to tell
her I was looking for her.
Marriage, children,
work and living filled in my
time. So the long and short
of it is, I never did see
Melba in person. I never
got to see her on stage.
I never got to see a live
version of her and Charlie
Louvin doing "I've Got
Something to Brag About"
in you.
So don't talk
to me about life's
disappointments. I've been
there! For a long time! And
it's a heartache that won't
go away! I am painfully
reminded of it every time
I hear one of the media
proclaimed "country
female stars" of today
attempt a song...
Respectfully,
Kes

expecting.
In her ninth year teach-
ing first grade at Wewahi-
tchka Elementary, Guffey
said she wouldn't want to
teach any other age group.
First-graders have an ea-
gerness to learn, she said,
and show a lot of develop-
ment through the years
as they make advances in
reading. One of Guffey's
goals in teaching is to help
her students develop a love
for reading.
Gufffey refers to her
class as a family.
Her polka dot themed
classroom reiterates to
the six- and seven-year old
students that everybody is
special in his or her own
way and everybody has dif-
ferent things they're good
at.
During her class obser-
vation last week, Guffey
never missed a beat.
"Her classroom man-
agement techniques were
excellent," said Duane Mc-
Farland, Gulf County As-
sistant Superintendent for
Business Services, who sat


in on Guffey's observation.
"She never missed a beat."
McFarland was im-
pressed with Guffey's quick
transitions to different ac-
tivities and ability to keep
her first-graders engaged.
In her observation,
Guffey taught a reading
class using an audio tape
and chose vocabulary
words for her students to
"play" with by adding let-
ters to create new words
out of the original and
picking synonyms and ant-
onyms.
Every seven minutes
she transferred to a new
activity, and if the students'
attentions strayed, Guffey
asked for an attention-grab-
bing "nose, ear, clap!"
"She had a variety of
behavior management
techniques to bring (the
students) back to task,"
McFarland said. "She nev-
er changed her demeanor,
she just taught the whole
time."

individual school winners

In addition to the in-

have under their belts.
"We're excited when we

Norton said he was glad
to have the ability to of-

"We hope we can con-

Rare geese spotted


on Pig Island


during Christmas


Bird Count

By Lois Swoboda
Florida Freedom Newspapers


Two White-Fronted Geese were
spotted Dec. 28 on Pig Island in the
second ever sighting of the species
in Gulf County during a Christmas
Bird Count (CBC). The White-
Fronted Goose is normally found
only as far east as Louisiana. The
other CBC sighting of the bird was
in 1984.
The number of birds spotted
during the 2011 CBC in Gulf County
was down about 15 percent from
2010.
During the count, 9,719 birds of
131 species were spotted by seven
teams of birders. This is the second
lowest number counted since 2004.
The lowest number counted was
9,083 in 2009. The greatest number
of individual birds counted was
14,791 in 2008.
During the 2011 count, 22
volunteers traveled 213 miles
and logged a total of 81 hours of
observation time.
Although the number of species
was slightly down from last year,
it was the third highest since 2004.
The record, 135, was set in 2010.
There were 26 species found by
only one team of birders.
Some other interesting birds
found this year include: Northern
Gannet, American White Pelican,
Common Goldeneye, Merlin,
Clapper Rail, Whimbrel, Red
Knot, American Woodcock, Whip-
poor-will, Grasshopper Sparrow,
Nelson's Sparrow, Saltmarsh
Sparrow, Seaside Sparrow and
White-crowned Sparrow.
Two Long-billed Curlews were
spotted at Indian Pass. This is
North America's largest shorebird
and breeds in the grasslands of
the Great Plains and Great Basin
before migrating to the Gulf Coast
for the winter.
Four Greater Black Scoters
were spotted on Cape San Blas.
This large sea duck eats mollusks
and crustaceans and is normally
found only as far south as South
Carolina. Black Scoters have been
sighted in Gulf County only a half
dozen times since the
bird count began.
Another arctic
Isea (lduck the \\lhlte-
ncllled Scoter.
\Was spotted on( :IIIpl
Island Thiis duck
also eats mollusks


and crustaceans and normally
winters in the Great Lakes.
Three Piping Plovers were
spotted in the Buffer Preserve.
This endangered species has
declined steadily in the
CBC over the years. The
bird is disappearing with .:,
its habitat. -
According to the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service,
"Many of the coastal beaches
traditionally used by Piping
Plovers for nesting have been lost
to commercial, residential and
recreational developments.
"Through the use of dams and
other water control structures,
humans have been able to raise
and lower the water levels of many
lakes and rivers of plover inland
nest sites. Too much water in the
spring floods the plovers' nests.
Too little water over a long period
of time allows grasses and other
vegetation to grow on the prime
nesting beaches, making these
sites unsuitable for successful
nesting."
A Whip-poor-will was spotted
during count week A count week
species is any species that was not
seen on count day but was seen
three days before the count or
three days after the count. The bird
must have been seen within the
count circle.
The Bald Eagle population has
shown a steady upward trend in
Gulf County. This year, 33 were
spotted. They were observed in all
seven of the sample areas.

Great Backyard Bird Count
The CBC is over, but now it's
time to gear up for the 15th annual
Great Backyard Bird Count
(GBBC) to be held Feb. 17-20. The
GBBC is an annual four-day event
that engages bird watchers of all
ages in counting birds to create a

Many shorebirds nest


at St. Joseph Peninsula


By Joseph Mitchell, Park Services
Specialist
St. Joseph Peninsula State Park
(850)227-1327
Several different
shorebirds nest on our
beach each year. Spring and
summer are the nesting
seasons for shorebirds
such as the snowy plover,
Wilsons plover, least tern,
oyster catcher and the black
skimmer. All are federally
and state protected species
of birds. Of these, the two
most numerous nesters
on our beach are Snowy
Plovers and Least Terns.
The snowy plover is 15-17
centimeters long. Its breast
band is never complete,
and usually just appears
as dark lateral patches on
the sides of the breast. The
snowy plover's upper parts
are grayish brown and the
under parts white. The
breast markings are black
in the summer. Breeding
males have a black mask
through the eye. The legs
are black
The least tern is the
smallest American tern,
weighing about 28 gm and
measuring about 23 cm in
length. It is identified in
spring and summer by a
white forehead contrasting
with a black crown. Its body
is slate grey above and
white below. Terns have
pointed wings and forked
tails. The bill and feet are
yellow.
The snowy plover and
least tern usually will
nest more than once a
season. The nests are
small indentations in the
sand, and are very hard to
notice. The nest typically
has three eggs and both
the male and female watch
after the nest. The only way
these small ground nesting
birds protect their nest
is by distraction displays,
flapping their wings
and scooting across the
sand away from the nest.
Shorebirds do this to lure


away any predators.
St. Joseph Peninsula
State Park is the most
productive nesting beach
in the Florida Panhandle.
The white fine grained sand
and the solitude make the
park an excellent nesting
beach. For the 2011 nesting
season, 68 adult Snowy
Plovers and 110 adult Least
Terns were counted by state
biologists during the nesting
season. Snowy Plovers had
a 73 percent nest hatching
success, and 80 percent of
the Least Tern nests were
successful.
Park staff and biologists
do what they can to help
protect these birds. Nesting
areas are posted with signs
and usually roped off. We
rely on our visitors not
to enter these protected
areas, for doing so can have
adverse effects on nesting.
Birds that are routinely
disturbed will abandon their
nests. Nests and eggs blend
in with the sand so well
that visitors may step on
the eggs without knowing
that they did. Dogs are a
special problem to nesting
shore birds. Shore birds
see dogs as predators and
will abandon their nests in
areas dogs frequent. Dogs
have also been known to kill
escaping birds and eat the
eggs.
As natural areas are
developed and more people
visit Florida State Parks
and other public lands,
they often forget about
the impact they have on
natural areas. We all hope
that visitors will enjoy the
beauty of our park, and
remember that their actions
will have consequences to
the wildlife and the land.
By heeding the posted bird
signs and observing wildlife
from a distance, our nesting
shorebirds may be around
for future generations to
appreciate.
Until next time,
From the rangers at St. Joseph
Peninsula State Park

OUTRIGGERS

Freshwater

Striped bass and even a few of hybrid bass are
reported this week in the I.C.W. canal and going west
to East Bay. Hotter water temps are on the rise and
have stirred up the catfish and bream bites as well.
Depot creek is hit or miss, and the jury is still out on
the new boat ramp there.


Inshore

Some Spanish mackerel are showing up early this
year. Several reports from Mexico Beach Pier and the
sea wall in St.Joe Marina have produced Spanish on
Spec rigs and Got-Cha plugs. Trout are still hanging
out up at the "T" in the canal, but no reports of red
fish still. Some anglers are reporting flounder catches
in the M.B canal and off of the jetties. Black sea bass
are being caught inshore around rubble and in the Car

Port St. Joe edges Franklin


County for district crown


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
The lunch menu last
Friday at Port St. Joe High
School was fairly sparse
for the Tiger Shark soccer
team.
The discussion was all
about victory in that night's
District 1-1A final against
rival Franklin County.
"We had a meeting at
lunch and we decided that
we were going to win, we
had to win, we were not go-
ing to let us lose this one,"
said senior co-captain Dan-
iel May.
A Gibraltar defense and
a converted opportunity by
freshman striker Marcel
Duarte, whose 17 goals and
40 points leads Port St. Joe,
were sufficient in the Tiger
Sharks' 1-0 victory at Sam
Cox Field.
"This might have been
our best defensive effort of
the year," said Port St. Joe
coach Gary Hindley.
"We wanted to mark
(junior midfielder Elton
Olvera), their most danger-
ous player. We wanted to
be aware of where he was.
Our game plan worked out.
Sometimes that doesn't
happen; tonight it did."
The defensive effort was
total for Port St. Joe, but
the backline of May, Blaine
Bush, LaGrand McLemore,
Raymond Robles and Dan-
iel Jones was particularly
impenetrable, allowing just


a single shot directly on
net at first-year goalkeeper
Walt Bowers.
"That's the way I like it,"
May said of the lack Frank-
lin County shots on net.
"The backline, I thought
we played smart and we
played composed."
The game was played
primarily in the midfield
throughout the first half,
with the Seahawks enjoy-
ing what passed for any
foray into opposition terri-
tory for much of the first 35
minutes.
But the Tiger Sharks
pressed the action in the
final few minutes and when
the Seahawks mishandled
a clearing effort roughly
25 yards from goal in the
final minute, Drew Lacour
gathered the loose ball and
sent a through pass to Du-
arte who sprinted past the
defense.
He dashed in untouched
and kicked a perfect drib-
bler past Franklin keeper
Daniel Carrino and into
the net just as regular time
elapsed.
The lone threat Bow-
ers faced was from a pass
off a free kick in the middle
of the field to Tanner Klink
who drilled a shot from the
top of the circle that Bow-
ers punched away.
Over the second 40
minutes, the Tiger Sharks
kept the ball primarily in
the Seahawk end. Duarte

not convert and Port St. Joe
enjoyed six corner kicks
- half in extra time and
two free kicks.
Meanwhile, until the fi-
nal four minutes Franklin
County could simply not
penetrate the Tiger Shark
defense.
"It was a hard-fought
game and this is a tough
loss," said Franklin County
coach Jono Williams. "They
are our rivals. We prepared
hard for this. But we are
still alive and we have to
shake this off and get ready

Negrete, Lafayette




end Port St. Joe run


By TIM CROFT
Florida Freedom Newspapers
PORT ST. JOE A penalty
kick. Seconds remaining
in regulation. Score knot-
ted at 2-2.
For the team with the
kick, Mayo Lafayette, it was
the best of circumstances.
For the host Tiger Sharks it
was the worst.
Aruto Negrete convert-
ed, completing a hat trick
withthe clockwinding down
to finish a comeback and
end Port St. Joe's season as
the Hornets won 3-2 at Sam
Cox Field in a Region 1-1A
quarterfinal.
For Lafayette, 12-5-2, it
was a first-ever playoff win
in soccer For Port St. Joe,
15-3-1, hopes of reaching a
third consecutive region fi-
nal were dashed.
"It was a tough way to
lose, but when you battle
like that sometimes in
sports those things happen,
they don't go your way,"
Port St. Joe coach Gary
Hindley said. "Frankly, we
are not quite good enough.
When they put the pressure
on us we did not play good
smart soccer.
"We had chances to
score the third goal and
then the penalty kick is to
tie. We battled hard; we just
weren't good enough."
After absorbing early


pressure from the Hornets
in the opening half the
Tiger Sharks carved a 2-
0 lead over the span of 13
minutes.
In the 15th minute, Drew
Lacour put a gorgeous
header through the middle
of the Lafayette defense to
Marcel Duarte, who split
two defenders and used
the back of his right foot to
flick the ball over and past
a charging keeper. It was
Duarte's team-leading 18th
goal.
In the 28th minute, Ja-
varri Beachum used quick
thinking to double the lead.
On a pass back from his de-
fense, the Hornet keeper
illegally handled the ball,
allowing Port St. Joe an in-
direct kick.
Before any player could
react, Beachum took the
ball from the referee, spot-
ted it and kicked a slow
roller to Lacour who scored
into an open net.
The Hornets closed 2-1
before intermission under
circumstances that would
prove arrestingly familiar.
With 39 seconds re-
maining in regulation
time, Port St. Joe was
called for a penalty in the
box and Negrete, the Hor-
nets leading scorer with 25
goals entering the game,
converted and the Hornets


had life.
They came out using
an advantage in size and
their physicality to impose
their will on the pace of the
game. They played a major-
ity of minutes in the Tiger
Shark end in the second
half before Negrete netted
a left-footer from 15 yards
directly in front of the net.
The game was tied 2-2 with
23 minutes left.
For the next 22:53 the
teams battled furiously,
both with chances in the
offensive end, but unable
to convert. They finished
nearly even in shots, 14-12
in favor of the Hornets.
"This is our first-ever
soccer win and to do it here
in St. Joe against a good
team, it feels good," said
Hornet coach Danny Glov-
er. "We've worked hard.
We are a team that seems
to play better when we are
behind. We are concerned
when we are ahead."

fresh water supply to each
lot or building site in the
area."
Butler said the county
must prove to Congress the
designation was established
using bad numbers; that
there was actually more
than one structure per five
acres of land. Bulter said
the Cape was also already
equipped with a water sys-
tem, electricity, telephone
lines and a roadway at the
time of the designation in
1981, but it was somehow
overlooked.
Butler said St. George Is-
land is also a barrier island,
but does not carry the CBRA
designation.
"If we can't get CBRA
changed it will be very hard
in the future to try again,"
Butler said. "But we feel
good."
Butler said it will ulti-
mately be up to Congress to
decide to drop the designa-
tion or not.
An estimated 600 proper-
ties on the Gulf side of Cape
San Blas and along St. Jo-
seph Peninsula and another
400 on the bay side will be
dramatically affected by the
appeal decision.
The county will also ex-
pand a project currently
underway correct flood and
drainage issues near the
Stump Hole area in Cape
San Blas using Community
Development Block Grant
(CDBG) Disaster Recovery
Initiative funds for damages
brought by Hurricane Gus-
tav in 2008. Improvements to


the project will include the
construction of additional
rock revetment along the
roadways and alleviate the
current urgent need condi-
tion.
Right now, Butler said
the coastline is mostly sta-
bilized north of the Stump
Hole, with the worst erosion
occurring in and around the
Stump Hole area.
Lighthouse, quarters
could be impacted in 2-5
years
The coastline in front of
the Cape San Blas Light-
house, property of the U.S.
Air Force, has also seen
significant erosion, with the
restored keeper's quarters
sitting only 50 yards from
the water.
The Air Force owns 833
acres of property on Cape
San Blas.
Butler made a trip Eglin
Air Force Base to inquire
about participation in the
last beach renourishment of
Cape San Blas.
"We talked to them and
they recognized they had a
problem," Butler said, but
ultimately Eglin opted out of
the project."
Butler said the Air Force
has shown interest in the
last three months in renour-
ishing the beach on its prop-
erty at the south end of the
Cape.
Eglin environmental
spokesman Mike Spaits said
the Air Force does not in-
tend to renourish the beach
around the lighthouse at this
time, but they are concerned


with the erosion that is oc-
curring.
The erosion has crept
into areas used for test
missions and has damaged
or destroyed buried util-
ity lines, roads and concrete
hardstands, but budget con-
straints have limited options
to reclaim lost landmass,
Spaits said.
Spaits said while there
is currently no immediate
threat to the lighthouse and
keeper's quarters, in an es-
timated 2-5 years it could
have an adverse affect on
the buildings.
Spaits said discussions
are underway with the State
Historic Preservation Of-
ficer on a plan of action to
protect the structures from
future damage.
Eglin Air Force Base also
recently gave Gulf County
approval to include the Eglin
property in any grant appli-
cation that may be pursued
and showed support for their
efforts in seeking funding.
Spaits said any approval
to renourish would require
a consultation with the Air
Force's regulators, the Flor-
ida Department of Environ-
mental Protection and U.S.
Fish and Wildlife among
others. It would also require
conducting a mission im-
pact analysis on the prop-
erty, a breakdown of how
the proposed change would
impact current missions,
range infrastructure, natu-
ral resources, endangered
species and other consider-
ations critical to maintaining


the test range.
The Eglin property cur-
rently houses a manned
test site (D-3) facility that in-
cludes radars used for test
mission data and control
and various range instru-
mentation and communica-
tion systems. Other areas
on the property are used to
support test and training
missions on an intermittent
basis, with missions that
may include realistic field
training for radar or com-
munication equipment and
temporary installation of
data collection equipment,
Spaits said.
Because it is located on
the north side of Cape San
Blas Road, the D-3 test site
has not been affected by the
shoreline erosion.
The beach mouse dilem-
ma
Another issue troubling
the Cape comes in a much
smaller package.
The county is wrestling
with how to fund the develop-
ment of a Habitat Conserva-
tion Plan for the endangered
St. Andrews Beach mouse,
a species that, according to
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
is believed to dwell only in
the peninsular beaches of
Gulf and Bay Counties.
Butler said three years
ago construction of a house
on the Cape was stopped
because the owner did not
have the proper mouse per-
mit to build.
The county established
a $15,000 habitat conserva-

water.


tion plan for the Cape back
in 2004 that still has not been
approved by the FWC, but
because the plan did not in-
clude the St. Andrews Beach
mouse a new conservation
plan must be drafted.
This conservation plan
will cost a total of $416,663,
Butler said, a cost the FWC
promised the county it would
take care of.
The county received a
$390,000 grant from FWC to
fund the new plan, but the
FWC is asking the county
to provide the remaining
money.
"We're talking to FWC
right now," Butler said.
"We're trying to get them to
help figure out how we can
come up with this money."
With no new taxable prop-
erty in Gulf County in 2011,
Butler said it's an expense
the county cannot carry.
"We're not scared of the
(habitat conservation plan),"
Butler said. "We've been do-


ing this for eight years. We
just need the money to move
forward."
Butler said he doesn't un-
derstand why the new con-
servation plan costs so much
more than the previous plan
the county developed.
"We did this for $15,000,"
Butler said, pointing to the
2004 plan. "Why is (the new
plan) so much more?"
He also doesn't under-
stand why the last plan has
been sitting in Atlanta for
eight years, yet to be ad-
opted.
Without a habitat con-
servation plan, property
owners are required to ob-
tain an individual mouse
permit, a permit that can
take up to six months to
receive.
"In the 1980s the locals
didn't live on the beach out
there," Butler said. "It's
a beautiful place; there's
probably no prettier place
anywhere."

Bridge inducts three into Hall of Fame


By Valerie Gorman
Star Staff Writer


Frank MacAllister examines his Hall
of Fame Cafe plaque with nurse Terri
Nelson and Chaplain Clif Smith.


As the photos moved from
faded black and white to color,
graduates posed in caps and
gowns, happy couples crossed
the threshold, families grew,
children grew up and grand-
children were born.
The snapshots in time didn't
show lives of glamour or wealth,
but lives of a different type of
prosperity, gained through a
lifetime of service and dedica-
tion to their country, their com-
munity and their occupation.
Three slideshows offered a
glimpse into the lives of three
hometown heroes last Thurs-
day night at the Bridge of Bay
St. Joe's annual Hall of Fame
Caf6 induction ceremony.


Three new plaques were
mounted, honoring the lives of
residents Frank MacAllister and
Erma Louise Parker and stake-
holder Carol Jean Burrows.
"We have a lot of gems-a lot
of jewels in our facilities," said
Bridge administrator Ron Reid.
"We want to celebrate that."
Frank MacAllister
MacAllister's homage told
the story of a military man.
Black and white photos showed
him in uniform by an Air Force
plane, surrounded by fellow
servicemen, in war camps, with
his baseball team, and burst
into color to show a man with
a successful military career, in
his den reading the newspaper
and posing in a garden with
huge watermelons.


He was a railroad worker,
lifeguard and a civilian conser-
vation core worker during the
depression years.
He joined what would eventu-
ally become the U.S. Air Force
and served in World War II from
1943 until the war ended. He con-
tinued his career in military in-
telligence, eventuallybecoming a
Chief Master Sergeant stationed
at Tyndall Air Force Base.
MacAllister's military ca-
reer spanned 27 years and in
those years he also volunteered
his time and gave back to his
community.
Terri Nelson, a registered
nurse at the Bridge at Bay St.
Joe, presented MacAllister
with his hometown hero award.
Nelson could not hold back her
tears as she spoke of his friend-


ly and optimistic demeanor.
"He knows no stranger," Nel-
son said. "When you see Frank
his smile lights up the room.
It's as if he's waited all day just
to see you."
"Holy cow," MacAllister said
as he received his plaque. "This
is really something."
Erma Louise Parker
Parker's photos showed a
beautiful woman in a graduation
portrait, a chronology of a hap-
py and supportive marriage, a
growing family and later a wom-
an honored for her dedication to
the community's youth with a
building named in her honor.
She worked many jobs in
her life, but it was working with

BRIDGE from page B1


children where she finally
found her calling.
Parker worked at the
STAC House from 1958
until her retirement in
1992. The building was
later dedicated "The Erma
Louise STAC House" for
Parker's commitment to
bettering the youth of the
community.
Parker was honored for
the many young lives she
touched through her years
at the STAC House.
Parker was recognized
in the words of her hus-
band, Tom, who first laid
eyes on the skinny, freckle-
faced girl in ninth-grade
homeroom after her family
moved to Port St. Joe when
she was 14.
She was shy, but that
didn't keep her from snag-
ging the lead role in the
school play, with her future
husband poised in the male
lead role.
"I never dated Louise in
school," Tom Parker wrote.
"I was always too shy."
The two did eventually
marry and raise a large
family. Parker's children
accepted the plaque on be-
half of their mother Thurs-
day night.
Carol Jean Burrows
Her homage started with
a black and white school
picture of a girl in curls and
bows, and soon that girl

i~- ^^fi^^^^


was married, crossing the
threshold in her husband's
arms. She then stood with
her daughters in the front
yard of a small house, and
grew older in the color
photos of her quilting and
horseback riding.
Burrows was honored
for her strength and deter-
mination as a Bridge at Bay
St. Joe stakeholder, cancer
survivor, woman of faith
and community activist.
"Carol Jean loves work-
ing with the residents,"
said Director of Nursing
Cathy Epps, who presented
Burrows' award Thursday
night.
Epps said Burrows al-
ways claims she will stay
working until a certain
resident leaves, and when
they do she says it about
another and another.
Epps described Bur-
rows as strong-spirited and
determined; a woman who
worked hard all her life to
raise a family and establish
a career.
Burrows has worked at
the Bridge at Bay St. Joe
for 28 years, is a member of
Oak Grove Church and also
an active member of the
Panhandle Peacemakers.
"I just love my work out
here," Burrows said as she
received her award. "The
residents, they miss you
just like you're family."


The Bridge at Bay St. Joe's Hall of Fame Cafe
received three new plaques on Jan. 26.

I am proud to live in such an
area where "Lean on Me" truly has
a powerful meaning.
Let the memories remain with
you and know that she is in the
house of the Lord, and is with each
and everyone of us.
The celebration of Barb's life
was at the First Methodist Church
in Mexico Beach, a celebration it
was as the crowd left singing and
dancing to the song by the Beach
Boy's....Bar-Bar- Ba -Ran!!!!
God Bless each and everyone
one of you,
Carol
