As a result the Health Department announced last week that it would transition its primary care health services at its Wewahitchka facility to Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf. Initial plans have been made for Sacred Heart Medical Group to operate a new rural health clinic, including primary care services, lab services and radiology services, from the Health Department facility on State 22 in Wewahitchka. My goal is that this is as seamless a transition as possible, said Health Department administrator Marsha Lindeman. The action comes as a result of several factors, Lindeman said. Over the past ve years the Florida Department of Health has seen funding for primary care services shrink. For the Gulf County Health Department that has meant the loss of nearly $500,000. Lindeman noted it is a funding issue across the state. In addition, the Health Department lost its physician at the Wewahitchka Medical Clinic and has been unable to nd a replacement for two years. Meanwhile, funding was further hit by the loss of fees from the decrease of patients due to the loss of a physician, adding to the challenge of balancing a budget and still providing the needed level of services to the community. The cuts started before I came and we have tightened and tightened and tightened, Lindeman said. I came to the conclusion we simply could not maintain the level of services we have maintained. But, Lindeman noted, as she and her staff explored ways to whittle the budget, the commitment to the community remained. A guiding principle for us was to ensure that there was no reduction in the access to primary care services for any part of our communities, Lindeman said. We remain committed to protect See HEALTH A3 SPECIAL TO THE STAR Debbie Hooper with joebay.com snapped this aerial of the fun being had at the end of St. Joseph Peninsula last Saturday during the Memorial Day weekend.

Dredging, Capital City Bank top Port Authority agenda By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.co m The dynamics of developing the Port of Port St. Joe, port director Tommy Pitts told Port Authority members last week, have changed. The announcement the prior week that the St. Joe Company, collaborating with the Port Authority to develop the port, had entered into an agreement with Green Circle Bio Energy, Inc. that could lead to establishing a wood pellet shipping pipeline through the Port of Port St. Joe was, Pitts said, a game changer. The announcement, in the form of a Letter of Intent (LOI) contemplating formal agreements down the road for providing product for Green Circle and a pellet plant along the former AN Railroad, could mean that within two or three years wood pellets will be shipped through the port to overseas market. This has been going on over a year, said St. Joe representative Dane Caldwell. We are moving forward and trying to manage expectations. The key for the port is dredging, long a top priority that became No. 1 with a bullet with the St. Joe-Green Circle announcement. Any future involvement by the Port of Port St. Joe is contingent on achieving the maintenance dredging of the shipping channel to its federally-authorized depths. This not only helps the dredging cause but the rail cause, Caldwell said, alluding to a Florida Department of Transportation grant for rehabilitation of the rail line between Port St. Joe and Chattahoochee. Combine dredging with the rail, noted Port Authority chair Leonard Costin, and the link from Gulf of Mexico to I-10 is secure. This is de nitely a step in the right direction, Costin said. The Port Authority voted unanimously to alter its wish list to the county RESTORE Committee, which is considering recommendations for spending any funds that might ultimately come to the county through the RESTORE Act, which divvies out BP ne monies among Commissioners lend support to Port Authority By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.co m The Board of County Commissioners wants a return on its loan to the Port Authority, but they are optimistic the money will come. During Tuesdays regular bi-monthly meeting, Port Authority chairman Leonard Costin came to commissioners to request consideration on a $200,000 loan the BOCC made to the Port Authority two years ago. Though the first $10,000 payment is not due until next year, Costin asked if the county would consider extending the deadline for complete payment until 2021. The Port Authority is due to make annual payments of $10,000 for six years beginning in 2014 and then pay off the balance in a balloon payment in 2021. Costin said the Port Authority does not have the District keeps highperforming streak intact By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.co m Seven is indeed a lucky number this year for Gulf District Schools. For the seventh consecutive year the district is among a select few statewide named Academically High-Performing by the Florida Department of Education. Its a real kudo, said Sara Joe Wooten, Deputy Superintendent for Instruction. This is not an easy thing to get. Gulf District Schools were joined by just two other Panhandle districts on the list of 19 districts designated high-performing by the state Calhoun and Walton counties. The list also includes Charlotte, Citrus, Clay, Flagler, Gilchrist, Lee, Leon, Martin, Nassau, Palm Beach, St. Johns, Sarasota, Seminole, Sumter and Wakulla. To earn the designation, a school district must have been an A district at least two years in a row if slipMeet you at the peninsula See DISTRICT A3 The Port Authority voted unanimously to alter its wish list to the county RESTORE Committee, which is considering recommendations for spending any funds that might ultimately come to the county through the RESTORE Act, which divvies out BP ne monies among states impacted by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill.

The writing is a bit off this year, said Sara Joe Wooten, Dep uty Superintendent for Instruc tion. We have not had a chance to really dig down and look at all the numbers, but we have some things we will need to address. The FCAT writing component is administered to fourth-, eighthand 10th-graders. In fourth grade, students write in a narrative style; eighth-graders a persuasive es say; and in 10th-grade an exposi tory essay. The emphasis the past two years has been on enhancement, putting down thoughts, Woo ten said. It is more how you put down thoughts and more mature writing. District eighth-graders per formed the best when compared to the state average and those stu dents who graded out at least 3.5 or above on a scale that rises from 1 to 6. At Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School, the average score was a 3.2, compared to the states 3.3. At Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School, the average score was a 3.7. In Port St. Joe 90 percent of eighth-graders scored a 3 or above, 72 a 3.5 or above and 47 percent scored a 4 or above. The state averages were 79 per cent, 54 percent and 35 percent, respectively. In Wewahitchka, 78 percent of eighth-graders scored 3 or above; 51 percent 3.5 or above and 35 per cent at least a 4. Sophomores at both Junior-Se nior High Schools fell below the state mean score of 3.5, with We wahitchka averaging a 2.8 and Port St. Joe a 3.2. The state average of students scoring 3 or above was 85 percent in Wewahitchka it was 58 percent and Port St. Joe 76 percent. The state average of students scoring 3.5 or above was 62 percent in Port St. Joe it was 51 percent, in Wewahitchka 32 percent. At Wewahitchka 14 percent of 10th-graders scored 4 or above; at Port St. Joe the percentage was 23 percent compared to the state av erage of 40 percent. And among fourth-graders, the trends were similar to 10th-graders. Both Wewahitchka Elementary School (3.2) and Port St. Joe Ele mentary School (3.1) fell below the state average score of 3.4. Eighty-three percent of fourthgraders statewide scored 3 or above; in Wewahitchka it was 77 percent and 71 percent in Port St. Joe. Among fourth-graders around the state, 77 percent scored 3.5 or above; in Wewahitchka it was 47 percent and in Port St. Joe 42 percent. The state percentage of fourthgraders scoring 4 or above was 37 percent; seven percentage points higher than in Wewahitchka and 11 percentage points higher than in Port St. Joe. We are going to have to look at every aspect of these scores be fore deciding a course of action, Wooten said. For example, among 10thgraders, we will go back and look at how they scored as eighth-grad ers. We have challenges; we just need to have a clearer picture of where they are. Also released last week were reading and math scores for third-graders. They are critical in whether a student is held back a grade level. Wewahitchka Elementary fin ished with an average score of 204 in reading and 205 in math. In both categories, the state average dis trict score was 201. Wewahitchka really slammed it in both reading and math, Woo ten said. Port St. Joe Elementary had an average score of 200 in math and 198 in reading. By WES LOCHER 229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@starfl.co m After declaring a Re duction in Force at its last regular meeting, the Gulf County School Board stated that no layoffs would take place until the budget for 2013-14 school had been completed. Still faced with a shortfall of $868,249 for the upcoming year, the board plans to cut a min imum of 12 positions. During the Tuesday meeting, Gulf County Superintendent Jim Norton said that all de cisions would be made by June 30 when the budgets are due. Gulf County Schools will outsource its cus todial services for the next school year, bring ing in GCA Services Group. After receiving a rec ommendation from Bay County Schools, GCA presented a detailed breakdown of its servic es to the board for con sideration and ultimate ly was awarded the bid. GCA will begin its transition June 1 bring ing in workers and equipment. The company will interview existing jani torial staff and begin training new hires. On July 1 the transi tion will be complete and GCA will manage all custodial services for Gulf County schools. A meeting will take place in the coming weeks between GCA and the current staff to detail the transition and answer any questions. Norton noted that Franklin County schools had also hired GCA for their upcoming school year. Were on the front end of trendsetting with this outsource, he said. After adjournment of the board meeting, Deputy Superintendent for Instruction Sara Joe Wooten commenced the graduation ceremony for the Gulf County Adult School. Wooten introduced Melody Nelson, teach er for the Port St. Joe Adult School, who just completed her first year with the school, and Billy Hooper, instructor for Wewahitchka for the last five years. A moment of silence was also given for Caro line Norton who passed away last week. She was a former teacher at the Adult Schools. The 14 graduates were recognized before the school board and the audience as they received their diploma and Superintendent Norton turned their tassel. It isnt the end of your life, Norton said, addressing the gradu ates, its just the beginning. A reception took place following the cer emony for the graduates along with their friends and family.

Commissioner Carmen McLemore said he could not support extending the payment, saying the money is federal economic development mon ey that other small businesses could use to build their businesses. But, McLemore later noted, that payment was not due until next year and he, and his fellow commission ers, expressed a universal belief that something would likely change given recent movement on port development in the next year to leave the Port Authority in a posi tion to meet the loan requirements. Im more confident today than Ive ever been about the port, said Commissioner Warren Yeager. I am confident there will be some thing on that site that will create jobs. The port is the best opportu nity for Gulf County to create jobs. Commissioner Joanna Bryan said the initial action in loaning the money was flawed she again called for the board to adopt a more transparent and detailed agenda and that the board put few if any strings on spending the money. She said the Port Authority was moving in the right direction but the board should slow down and work with the port to facilitate the devel opment of the port. Commissioner Ward McDaniel wondered if the Port Authority were to collateralize the loan the coun ty is currently the second mort gage behind Capital City Bank on the barge terminal land currently the subject of foreclosure action such as the unencumbered Arizona Chemical land donated to the Port Authority. Costin said from his perspective an agreement could be reached to further secure the countys money, but said he would have to take the issue back to the Port Authority board next to gauge the feelings of board members. Costin added that when the Port Authority has the money it will not wait until 2021 to pay off the loan, but repay the funds immediately. We want to get the port going, we need to get the port going, Mc Daniel said. We are willing to work with you. Interlocal agreement /PSJRA move Commissioners examined the 15 items on the eight-year-old interlo cal agreement concerning the an nexation by the city of Port St. Joe of WindMark Beach and how to address a stalemate with the city over one provision and the Welcome Center. The county has asked that the Port St. Joe Redevelopment Agency vacate the Welcome Center to ac commodate the growing Tourist Development Council. The proposal would be to fund the move of the PSJRA to the Local Color building occupied by the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce. The PSJRA is currently paying rent for both spaces as the city has been unwilling to approve the move. The main sticking point for the city is a long-ago request to revisit a fire tax in order that it be divided between the three fire departments that respond to WindMark Beach. The tax was earmarked to pay for a fire station that as yet is not needed. In March, the city sent a request to the county that the interlocal agreement be rendered null and void and a new agreement be signed that would include a few remaining items, in particular division of the fire tax. The county is preparing its for mal response. Ticking off the 15 items, county administrator Don Butler noted that the vast majority have been completed or obligations mutually removed. A few remain, the fire tax and a provision regarding charging the same water/sewer rates for county residents as those for city resi dents, and the county wants the city to convey the land the Welcome Center sits on to the county. The county also wants the city to take over fire response to the unin corporated of Oak Grove. This was put in place at a dif ferent time for the county, Yeager said of the interlocal agreement. Bryan agreed, but said times will change in another three or five years. She opposed rendering the existing agreement null and void and said she would like to work through the entire agreement in de tail before making a decision on the fire tax. Yeager requested that county staff convey to the city an inter est for a joint workshop to work through the agreement and Bryan asked that the countys response urge the move of the PSJRA until that workshop. We need to get the PSJRA moved, she said. Recycling Commissioners approved, with McLemore dissenting, to spend up to $6,000 to establish a recycling pi lot project at Salinas Park. Waste Management will provide a 24-foot can that will have openings for recycling plastic, glass, newspa per and cardboard. The effort is to have the pilot project span the summer months, the next four, to provide the raw data to establish the feasibility and challenges for a county-wide plan. Yeager said the city of Port St. Joe would like to join the county in the effort. This is a good pilot project for the future, McDaniel said. We are not going to know if it is going to work until we try it. SUPPORT from page A1 ping to a B as Gulf County did two years ago, a return to an A the following year is required. As Gulf County is again a B district this year, it will have to earn an A for the just-completed school year to continue its streak of seven years. In addition to being an A district, the district may have no F schools, no material weaknesses in its an nual nancial audit and must be materially compliant with all state and federal laws governing public schools. This designation allows us to use our own School Improvement Plans instead of the states which is more cumbersome, Wooten said. We can also set our start time instead of going by the state calendar. This is especially important in Gulf County because it allows the district to set its calendar in linkage to Gulf Coast State College to accommodate the growing num ber of students in dual-enrolled courses. This is a big thing for us, Wooten said. For a small district, this is a real kudo. DISTRICT from page A1 and promote the health of Floridas residents and visi tors in Gulf County. Enter Sacred Heart, which since opening a hospital and medical ofce building in Port St. Joe has seen sol id growth over the past few years, expanding services with a broad reach into the community. We are honored to partner with the Florida De partment of Health in Gulf County to continue provid ing primary care services in Wewahitchka, said Roger Hall, president of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf. The quality of healthcare available in a community is always reective of the quality of leadership in that community, and Gulf County is blessed with strong leadership that enables organizations to align strategi cally to positively impact the quality of life. The (Health Department in Gulf County) laid a solid foundation to build upon for healthcare in Wewa hitchka, and we hope to meet and exceed the communi tys expectations for such services for years to come. The Health Department, while handing over prima ry care medical services to Sacred Heart, will continue to provide basic services such as vital statistics, immu nizations, WIC and some family planning. The schedules for those services are being worked out but will, generally, remain the same, Lindeman said. The overall goal of this collaboration is to ensure access to care for the Wewahitchka community, she said. Ensuring access to primary care is a growing concern for individuals and families in underserved rural populations. County Health Departments (around the state) are collaborating with local health care partners to develop cost-effective strategies for uninterrupted primary care. We are condent that Sacred Heart will strengthen the balance between the demand for care and capacity to provide care. The details of this transition plan are being nalized now and are anticipated for this summer. Lindeman said there would be a small reduction in workforce but could not provide exact numbers at this time. HEALTH from page A1 THE PORT ST.

Page 4 Thursday, May 30, 2013 Dear Editor, I know that Im going to start catching a lot of crap from my friends in and around Lake Lanier, Georgia, but I think the time has come. I need to change my hometown on Facebook to Port St. Joe. I dont think my wife has quite reached that point yet, but I can tell she is getting close. This week will be our first anniversary of coming down here. One year ago my wife talked me into spending our 26th wedding anniversary down on the Forgotten Coast. We secured a small place for the week out Indian Pass way, packed up the dog, and made our way down. Its funny thinking back. As we slowed to a stop at the end of Hwy 71, we knew we were close. I looked down at my dumb phone and my Google Maps said, Hang a right. Faithful followers of technology, we obeyed the command in anticipation of ending our long drive. We drove. We drove some more and continued driving until our navigational partner said, Stop! You have arrived. My wife and I looked at each other. Can this be right? We pulled into a couple of establishments and asked where Hwy 30A was. We were met with confused looks and shrugged shoulders. We finally pulled into the bait and tackle shop by the bridge in Mexico Beach. I found an old fisherman who could help. He asked, Where exactly are you trying to get to, son? When I said, Indian Pass, he replied, My friend, youre a long way from home. I never realized how true his words would be. With his guidance, and the dumb phone turned off, we were on the road, going back the way we came. In reality it wasnt that far, but having to backtrack is never productive, always a waste of time. Or is it? We finally found our destination just a few miles past what we would later learn is a regional icon, The Indian Pass Raw Bar. Tired, weary, and thirsty from the trip, after unloading the car it seemed to make sense that stopping in for a cold one was a good idea. It turned out to be the very best in ideas. Long story short, we were made to feel at home. Theres that word again. Through a fortuitous series of events, and while eating some of the best baked oysters ever, we found ourselves in all the right company. We became immediate and natural friends with Randy and Barbie Everett from out on the cape. They invited us into their tight circle of friends and weve been ruined ever since. With their help and assistance, we made several trips back and forth in search of a second house. Each trip back expanded the network of friends even more, solidifying our intention to find someplace, somewhere to call our own. We found it in beautiful Port St. Joe, a little cottage we now call The Blown Inn. We couldnt be happier. I know it is a clich, but I guess it is true. Home is where the heart is. For me, I leave mine on the front porch of The Blown Inn every time we pull back out for Georgia. Im pretty sure, my wife does too. Looking back, I think about that wrong turn. I think about the time spent going the wrong way. I think about the old fisherman and his words. Then I think about how things might have turned out had we not ended up in Mexico Beach, how the timing might have changed, and how our night at the Raw Bar might have been different, changing the path that would ultimately bring us to where we are today. It was as I said, a fortuitous series of events, and it all started with a wrong turn. Maybe that phone isnt so dumb after all. Kirk S. Jockell Port St. Joe Dear Editor: Is moving the Cape San Blas Lighthouse to Port St. Joe more important than domestic violence programs, homes for heroes, youth advocate programs, reading programs, back 2 hope summer programs, ventilators in nursing homes, veterans programs and providing jobs in Port St. Joe through supporting the Port of Port St. Joe? These are just a few of the items that were cut from the State Budget to make room for the $325,000 budgeted to move the Cape San Blas lighthouse to Port St. Joe. We were told that the cost to move the Cape San Blas Lighthouse to Port St. Joe was $350,000, when in fact, the City had submitted a Restore Act grant for $982,000. We were told that no taxpayer money would be used... where in fact does that $325,000 come from? We were told that moving it to the City was the safest place, when in fact the beach at Salinas Park is growing annually, and, the City plans to move the Lighthouse to a flood plain. The Florida Historic Lighthouse Association awarded a $20,000 grant to save the lighthouse no matter where it was moved. This money has already been spent on engineering how to put the lighthouse in the flood plain. Arent there better uses for our taxpayer dollars, and, the time spent by those representing us, such as the causes cut above? If you, the constituents of Port St. Joe had your choice of how to spend $1 million dollars, would it be to move the lighthouse? Or, are there other pressing issues the City should spend time and money on? It is this type of misinformation that led the Air Force to award the City the lighthouse in the first place. The original plan was an interactive park in Port St. Joe. Due to public input, that park is off the drawing board. I encourage you to contact your representatives and make your voice heard on the spending of this $1 million. What value does the Lighthouse bring to the City? None. It will only increase City costs to maintain this facility. Why move it to town? The Tourist Development Council has conducted a study which confirms that tourism will not be increased by having the Lighthouse in town. A replica or like structure could be built for hundreds of thousands of dollars less, which would actually accommodate more than a couple of people to climb to the top at a time? The Cape San Blas lighthouse is not designed for a tourist attraction with a lot of traffic. No original working lighthouse is, and, this one is difficult to navigate, has limited access, and possess a liability so that busloads of visitors from retirement homes or younger children are not an option. The lighthouse it is not self-sufficient and has to be subsidized whether the City or County has it. The County has spent approximately $40K annually in insurance, maintenance, grounds upkeep, etc. If the City residents are going to accept that obligation, what services are you willing to give up to do so? The real question again, is WHY? Why use taxpayer money to move the Cape San Blas Lighthouse to Port St. Joe when citizens have collected over $100,000 in private donations to keep the Lighthouse on the Cape at Salinas Park. The entire move of the lighthouse, the keepers cottages and the oil house to Salinas Park would be approximately $250,000. The beach is growing annually in this location. It is the Cape San Blas Lighthouse and has overlooked the Gulf of Mexico and St. Josephs Bay for over 160 years? Do we really need a lighthouse to overlook the City of Port St. Joe? Will it be an eyesore and look out of place? Moving the Lighthouse to Port St. Joe destroys the 160 years of historic value. Port St. Joe has very much history that is not capitalized on... why not focus on the history of Port St. Joe and leave the Cape history as it stands? If the true intent is to save the lighthouse, then all would agree that using private donations to move it safely to Salinas Park is a much better option that using $1M of taxpayer money to move the lighthouse to the City, for no returned value whatsoever. Those interested in saving $1,000,000 of taxpayer money and preserving the history of the Cape San Blas Lighthouse can make donations (anonymously if preferred) at www.gulfcountycca. com. No monies need be collected at this time, only your pledge, so that when the City cannot raise $1 million, or the people of Port St. Joe let their voice be heard, the Lighthouse can be saved and moved to Salinas Park before storm season allows Mother Nature to take her from us. Respectfully submitted, Julia Cunningham Cape San Blas Florida Mr. Warrens talk was better than my writing! Letter to the EDITOR My New Home The Lighthouse move Miss Polly Rucker looked us over with a cautious eye. She had that uncanny ability to seem to be staring right directly at each one of us. As the senior class sponsor she had prodded and pushed us along all year. With graduation just days away, she was teary eyed as she proclaimed, This is a great milestone in your life. We nodded a collective agreement kind of like we did when she told us Macbeth was the best Shakespeare had to offer. We didnt know for sure she was right but we respected her enough that nobody was going to openly disagree with her. She had fussed, shaken her head in disbelief, laughed and caressed about as much literature into us as a body could in one year. She had earned our trust and our love. I can still remember the look on her face when Buddy Wiggleton asked her if Shakespeare had written any baseball books A couple of nights later, as we were sitting in the front rows looking very scholarly in our caps and gowns, W. O. Warren in his commencement address congratulated us on reaching this tremendous Milestone. I kinda drifted back to yesteryear as he went into that part about us being the future leaders of tomorrow. It didnt seem so much to me like a milestone. I hadnt done anything yet. I hadnt gone anywhere. I was still living at the house. My friends were still close by. I really didnt feel any change. Wed been talking about getting out of high school ever since the ninth grade. It just seemed more like a natural progression than any high water mark. As Mr. Warren moved into the variety of jobs and amazing opportunities that awaited us I got to thinking back to Leons beat up old Schwinn bicycle. I wanted desperately to wheel it up to the grammar school on my first day of the first grade. My feet just barely touched the petals. And the handle bars were really high but I was determined to learn how to ride that thing. It looked simple. Until you got about two cranks into it and the front wheel turned wildly to the right and you lost your balance! I crashed into the shrubbery by the side porch. I nosedived into the ditch behind the swimming pool. I fell on the gravel road in front of Archie Moores house. Whew! Was life just going to be one big wreck? But one magic late summer day I got it balanced just right and rode all the way out to Roy Manleys house. Not one living soul was there to validate, commemorate or even celebrate the moment with me. And listen, I couldnt even spell milestone back then but you cant imagine the feeling of accomplishment busting forth from my little heart! As Mr. Warren started in on the we didnt get here by ourselves section, my mind raced back to that first at bat in Little League. I was eight years old and scared to death. Ray Cunningham was a twelve year old giant pitching for the Rotary. He hit me with the first pitch high up on my left arm. It didnt kill me! And I managed not to cry as I wobbled down to first base. Now, folks, thats a milestone! Charlotte Melton was sitting a couple of seats down from me on this ostentatious occasion. I glanced over at that beautiful face and thought back to a cold after school day in the eighth grade. I dont remember how or why we were walking through the elementary school parking lot. I do remember it was right beside the monkey bars and Im not sure who kissed whom. But it was the first time for both of usand that would have to go down as some kind of milestone. At least it was for me! I cant say for dead certain positive exactly how Charlotte took it. Milestones, I figured, are mostly in the eye of the beholder! You take the time me and Ricky Hale camped out in the swampy area known locally as the Jarrell Switch Bottom. It seemed like a good idea in the broad daylight. We ate our Hormel Vienna sausages and Premium saltine crackers in silence. The darker it got the closer the swamp drifted toward us. Creatures, never seen up at the town square, began to wail and moan. The moon quit on us. Unseen visitors began to gnaw on our arms, neck and legs. A blood curdling yell that sounded a lot like my older brother shook the ground we were not sleeping on. Pride, stubbornness and a healthy dose of stupidity kept us out there all night. It was as about as big a milestone that I ever celebrated. Of course, once was enough! I intercepted a pass against Milan and ran it back for a touchdown. I did a backwards somersault with a half twist off the high diving board. I won a junior tobacco spitting contest at the Carroll County Fair.all milestones that seemed to eclipse this graduation exercise on a hot, late spring night in 1965. Of course, they didnt. Time and maturity have proven me wrong. Riding a bike and kissing Charlotte are important mind you, but they are not essential. Mr. Warren was right. Graduation is a pretty big deal. Those reaching that milestone should be congratulated. And, as Miss Polly would remind them all if she was still with us today, Its what you do afterwards that counts!

We should see great catches coming to the dock, but dont wait too long the federal season is only 21 days and the state runs 44 days this year. Weather will play a major part in this weeks offshore fishing, so check it before you go! Inshore fishing is at a peak in St. Joe waters right now. With water and air temps on the rise, the fishing will soon slow down as the water gets above the 85* mark. Right now trout, redfish, and flounder can be found in all waters from 2 feet to 10 feet in St. Joe Bay. Live bait is abundant right now, so make the most of it! By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com Barn swallows are amazing yers and bene cial. Barn swallows are blue above with a peachy colored breast and darker orange on the throat and forehead. They have a long, slender, deeply forked tail. Females are slightly duller and shorter-tailed than males. Juveniles look similar to adults, but have much shorter tails. In late March, while walking my dogs on a mowed area near the airport, I found myself surrounded by about a half dozen barn swallows. They were swooping within a foot of the ground and so close to me I could almost have reached out and touched one. They were probably feeding on gnats or midges since it was dusk. They may have come so close to take advantage of insects my pack and I ushed while moving through the grass. They are known to follow agricultural equipment and cattle for that reason. Flies make up the majority of the barn swallows diet. Midges, mosquitoes and gnats are all ies. Barn swallows will eat any ying insect but prefer larger prey including beetles, bees, wasps, ants, butter ies and moths to midge swarms. However, larger insects are less abundant in early spring. The value of insectivorous swallows to farmers was recognized very early. It was illegal to kill them in ancient Rome. But they were driven to near extinction by hat-makers in the 19th century. The millinery trades impact on barn swallows prompted early conservationist George Bird Grinnells famous 1886 Forest & Stream editorial decrying slaughter of the little birds. That essay led to the founding of the rst Audubon Society. Happily, the barn swallow is once again among the commonest and most widely distributed bird species in the world and is found throughout the Northern Hemisphere in summer and over most of the Southern Hemisphere in winter. Barn swallows eat and drink on the wing. They forage in open areas including parks, ball elds, agricultural elds and beaches and over open water such as lakes, ponds and coastal waters. They range from sea level up to 10,000 feet. They are commonly seen over the grassy shoulders of the John Gorrie Bridge. According to Allaboutbirds.com, Barn Swallows once nested in caves throughout North America, but now build their nests almost exclusively on human-made structures. Today the only North American barn swallow population that still regularly uses caves as nest sites occurs in the Channel Islands off the California coast. Master birder John Spohrer said they commonly nest under bridges and docks in our area, since barns are few and far between. That means last year was not kind to these beautiful birds because high water from tropical storms Debby and Ivan washed away most of the nestlings and destroyed nests. Swallows nest in mud cups lined with grass and feathers and will reuse existing cups after changing out the soft lining and patching them with fresh mud. Barn swallows dont come to seed or suet feeders, but you might be able to attract them to your yard with ground-up eggshells or oyster shells placed on an open platform feeder. Swallows have lived in close association with humans for at least 2,000 years and, for this reason, they are the subject of much folklore. According to legend, a barn swallow consoled Christ on the cross. They represent freedom and hope. The swallows forked tail is said to have been struck by a lightning bolt when the swallow stole re from the gods to bring it to humankind. Another legend is that cows will give bloody milk if the swallows in the barn die or leave. Barn swallows also play an important role in maritime lore. English sailors had swallows tattooed on the chest or above the thumb on each hand. Each bird was said to represent 5,000 nautical miles traveled. It was also believed that, when a sailor drowned, the swallows carried his soul to heaven. DOT beauti cation funding approved On May 21, the Franklin County Commission voted unanimously to accept funding for roadside beauti cation from the Florida Department of Transportation (DOT). At the March 5 county meeting, County Planner Alan Pierce told commissioners $50,000 in DOT funding was available for roadside plantings to beautify the right of way along US 98. A $10,000 budget was earmarked for each county district. The DOT grant speci ed that money be limited to plants and plant support materials, like irrigation. Pierce speci ed that each site be furnished with irrigation to support the new plantings. The grant required that half the funding be used for large plant material, i.e. ve gallon containers or larger. Two of the sites chosen, US 98 and Hefernan Drive in Lanark Village and Island Drive in Eastpoint will be planted with large specimen palms. Three other sites, Carrabelle Beach Wayside Park, Seafood Workers County Park west of Apalachicola and the lawn of the county courthouse, designed by Nikki Millender, director of parks and recreation, will be planted with shrubs and perennials supporting migrating birds and butter ies. Pierce said the county has a year to complete the plantings and he anticipates planting will occur this fall.

The Port St. Joe AAU Youth basketball team recently went 4-0, winning every game by double digits, in taking the championship at the Big Shots Basketball Tournament at Tallahassee Maclay High School. Port St. Joe played against several Tallahassee and Cairo, GA area teams. We won the championship game 43-11 and all but one game we won by more than 20 points, said Kurnitsky. We did a real good job. This is the fourth tournament title the team which was missing two players for the tourney has won over the past year as a squad. I often have to split them up during the summer, but when this team plays together, and I was missing two last week, they have not lost a game in more than a year, maybe 15 to 18 games, Kurnitsky said. It is a good group. The team, comprised of Jackel Yarrell, Davien Welch, Drew Jones, Jarrett Browning, Kendre Gant, Jasmine Thomas and Trey Sanders, reminds Kurnitsky of some of the former Port St. Joe teams of years past. They know how to run, Kurnitsky said. They look like the old Port St. Joe teams, playing defense and running. They really pass the ball around really well and they can really score. But mostly they play defense and they run, run. The AAU team, along with several other grade levels, are coached by Kurnitsky throughout the summer, part of a feeder program he has created for Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School. Kurnitsky will also be conducting a basketball skills camp this summer. More information on the camp will be included in an upcoming edition of The Star.

Local A8 | The Star Thursday, May 30, 2013 states impacted by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill. The Port Authority now lists $5 million for dredg ing as its top request with an equal amount for settling a mortgage with Capital City Bank moved to the second position. The Green Circle an nouncement, Costin said, was of more impor tance than any disap pointment with Gov. Rick Scott for vetoing $2 mil lion from the state bud get earmarked to address that mortgage on the Port Authoritys barge termi nal parcel along the In tracoastal Waterway. The reaction to the veto was disappointment, but it does not change the mission, Costin said. The appropriation had been sought by Capital City Bank to pay down a portion of the $4 million mortgage on the parcel and had been support ed by lawmakers in the region. The Port Authority, the city of Port St. Joe and County Commission chair Tan Smiley, among oth ers, lent their support in a Protect Our Port campaign. Port Authority attorney Tom Gibson said a hear ing in the foreclosure pro ceedings had been post poned until July 17 while the state budget process played out. Each side is seeking a summary judgment in its favor; the bank on the ba sis of a mortgage well in arrears and the Port Au thority based on whether the land was properly mortgaged in the rst place. There were, board member Patrick Jones said, issues on both sides with no clear outcome. But I think I speak for the board in saying that there is not any interest on the boards part not to pay our obligations, Jones said. Gibson suggested it would be worthwhile to reengage Capital City before July to see if there was room for an agreement. Board member Eugene Rafeld said any conver sation with Capital City might need to be part of a broader conversation. The big thing that needs to happen is we need a quick answer on the dredging, Rafeld said. Without dredging the channel its not going to work. Rafeld said the dredg ing could have benet for beach nourishment as there would be much qual ity sand brought up in the process. That made the Gulf County Tourist De velopment Council a stakeholder. He suggested bringing all the parties state, fed eral, legislative together, including Capital City Bank which has a clear investment in the port to succeed, to help lobby the U.S. Army Corps of Engi neers on dredging. The St. Joe Company and Pitts have been lobby ing the Corps and state for more than a year. A FDOT grant is avail able as well as federal funds the two combined total about $1.4 million. Much if not all of that would be expended in permitting. St. Joe and the Port Au thority are exploring ways to leverage funds for local match to larger grants to facilitate completing the dredging. The best chance for the port, for the communi ty, for the bank, to get what they want is the dredging, Jones said. The way we are going to get revenue is to dredge that channel. Pitts said the partners would pursue dredging on parallel planes to pursue permitting and to pursue funding. We will pursue every dollar we can, Pitts said. Master Plan update The Port Authority took the final step in formaliz ing its master plan update with a public workshop immediately following last weeks regular meeting. This a time of dynam ic change in the effort to develop the port and wed like for the public to be in volved, Pitts said. The plan updates the 2008 master plan each plan must be updated ev ery five years, Pitts said and essentially examines the next five years and beyond while accounting for changes, such as the increase of the planning area under the collabora tion with St. Joe and the donation to the port of the former Arizona Chemical plan. The planning area is now 300 acres, Pitts said. As the last phase of the update, the public com ment from last weeks meeting and any written comments received are reviewed and incorpo rated or not and the Port Authority will adopt the plan at its next regular meeting. The plan will then be transmitted to the city of Port St. Joe for incorpora tion into the citys com prehensive plan. The lone public com ment last week came from Cape resident Bob Eng lish who said hed spent 25 years in planning for inland ports and had nev er undertaken the process for a deepwater port. He praised Pitts, who did the work in-house with assistance from St. Joe, for his execution of the update. 3 1 5 W i l l ia m s A v e P o r t S t J o e F L | ( 8 5 0 ) 2 2 9 6 6 0 0 25 % OF F i n st oc k S o r r el l i F J | S u m m e r Op e n H o us e & T r u nk S ho w at E n j o y r e f r e s h m e n t s & R e g i s t e r t o W i n S o r r e l l i p r i z e s WWW .LOOKOUTLOUNGE.COM ON THE POOP DECK IN THE CR O WS NEST D J LADIES NIGHT PM HAPPY HOUR FIRST SUND A Y CELEBRA TION PUB LI C N O TI CE E e c t i v e J un e 1, 2013 t i p p in g f e es a t Fi v e P o in ts L a n d l l w i l l in cr e a s e t o $40.00 p er t o n.

ANSWER ON PAGE B6 Newborns in Gulf County get a healthy start By WES LOCHER 229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star .com The Healthy Start Coalition for Bay, Gulf and Franklin counties held its annual Baby Shower event to provide new and expectant parents with information to promote positive birth outcomes and set them up for success. In attendance were 67 expectant and new mothers who gathered information on topics of interest which included car seat safety, safe sleeping, substance abuse, parenting and childbirth, breastfeeding and the dangers of shaking an infant. It can happen so easily, said Healthy Start Director Sharon Owens, you dont even realize it. During Thursdays festivities at the Centennial Building, hosted by Healthy Start Coalition Program Coordinator Kelly ByrnsDavis, many door prizes were given out and staying in line with the baby shower theme, several fun games were played including a take on The Price Is Right where contestants attempted to guess the value of a baby-related item. The mother who wagered the closest guess took the item home. New and soon-to-be fathers werent left out and participated in diaper-changing games. Sarah Hinds, health education program manager for the Florida Department of Health in Gulf County attended the baby shower as both a supporter and as an expectant mother. She praised the event for connecting new mothers with resources dedicated to helping them succeed with their children. As a new mom-to-be, I spend hours researching healthy tips and reading expert opinions, Hinds said. It can feel overwhelming when recommendations from materials are contradicted. Panama City OB/GYN Dr. Gregory Morrow spoke to those in attendance about the importance of smoking cessation, the health risks associated with tobacco use and the dangers it can pose on unborn and young children. WES LOCHER | The Star Door prizes including gift baskets, toys and gift certi cates were given away during the event. See START B5 By WES LOCHER 229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star .com In the three years since the opening of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf, 124 volunteers have donated more than 31,500 hours, equal to $697,479 in time value. While this seems like a lot of minutes, hours and seconds, volunteers Sylvia Whaley, Sherrill Russ, Bonnie Wilson and Juanita Cross cant imagine doing anything else. Having been with the program since day one of the hospitals operation, theyve watched the campus grow and have helped thousands of patients and their family members feel better simply by greeting them with a smile as they came through the doors. Its been a wonderful experience, said Whaley, who initially read the call for volunteers in the newspaper. One of my passions is that I love working with people. Sacred Heart is a lovely place to be. Volunteers are staffed seven days a week with shifts that run from 8 a.m. to 9 pm. Most volunteers work a four-hour shift once a week in various positions that include front desk, gift shop retail, interacting with patients and guiding them to the appropriate wing of the building, administrative duties, public relations and even miscellaneous projects and pilot studies. We couldnt accomplish all we do without them, said Physician and Volunteer Services Advocate Paulina Pendarvis, who coordinates By WES LOCHER 229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star .com Port St. Joe will celebrate National Marina Day on June 8 at the Port St. Joe Marina. The event will celebrate the marina industry and its role in boating. Vendors including the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce, Gulf County Tourist Development Council and the St. Joseph Bay Humane Society will be on hand with information and free giveaways. The marina also will play host to the Nautical Flea Market. Bluewater Outriggers, Dalys Dock and Dive and other marina customers will be selling and bartering boating items at a discount. The Coast Guard Auxiliary will be onhand to conduct free vessel checks. These professional inspections will ensure that boats have adequate and up-to-date safety gear and that the vessel is safe for the water. Last years Marina Day was canceled because of weather, but marina bookkeeper Krissy Beatty hopes that this years event will be the rst of many. We want to build awareness, she said. We want people to be comfortable with the marina and be informed. The goal is to educate boaters on how to operate safely and legally on the water. While at the marina, take a tour of the Special to The Star The Governor Stone, an 1877 historical schooner, will arrive in Port St. Joe to celebrate National Marina Day.

Usually when a patient hears that pronouncement, the shock leaves her or him in a benumbed state. You are taking in the words, but the reality of the disease and the inherent decisions that will need to be made are not quite comprehensible yet. What kind of cancer do I have? What stage is my cancer in? What is my prognosis? What kind of treatment is recommended for the cancer I have? Do I need a second opinion? What are my chances of cure, and what is my long term survival rate? These are all questions you need to ask your physician, but there are so many other questions that come to mind as you process your diagnosis and decide upon treatment plans, where to have your surgeries, radiation and/or chemotherapy. And all of these important decisions dont even address the mental anguish the patient is experiencing as each decision is faced. Only someone who has been through the same ordeal can truly relate to what the patient is feeling. That is the reason for a support group, a unit of people who have experienced the same thing. A support group for cancer survivors, those undergoing treatments, and their families and caregivers is being organized. The support group will meet at 5:30 p.m. ET on the rst Monday of the month, upstairs at Capital City Bank Everyone is invited to attend. Rafeld graduates from FSU Sandra and Harold Rafeld proudly announce the graduation with honors of their son, Jesse Harold Rafeld, from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in physics with a minor in mathematics on May 3 at the Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center. Jesse will continue his education at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., this fall.

The Star| B3 Thursday, May 30, 2013 Special to The Star The Port St. Joe Elementary School Challenge gifted class has lmed and produced a multimedia presentation titled Backyard Adventures! It aired to the entire student population during the last week of school. The video highlights local activities from Port St. Joe, Cape San Blas, the Beaches and Wewahitchka that kids may enjoy over the summer, without going far from home. The Challenge class comprises second-grader Gabriella Price, thirdgraders Sarah Beth Thompson and Megan Saleh, fourth-graders Ali Evans and Jack Randall, and sixth-grader Hannah Fulk. Doing this project, I learned about a bunch of cool things I want to do this summer, Fulk said. And we just scratched the surface of what there is to do. The Challenge students interviewed local citizens and businesses to develop the content for the video. In particular, the Challenge class cites the No Name Caf of Port St. Joe, Happy Ours of Cape San Blas and Smiley Apiaries, Mr. and Mrs. Price, and the Taunton family of Wewahitchka as major contributors to the video. The Challenge Class comprises gifted students. The Florida Department of Education denes gifted children as students with superior intellectual development and who are capable of high performance. The purpose of exceptional student education is to help each child with an exceptionality to progress in public school and prepare for life after school. ESE services include specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs of the exceptional student.

Mom, dad, Pat, Susan, Becky, Maddie and Remi 1 day to live If you had only one day left, what would you do with your life? If youre married, would you show more love, to your husband or your wife? Would you be nice to your kids, when you come in tired from work? Or would you come in snapping heads off, and acting like a jerk? Im sure a lot of things would go through your mind. Mostly of what, youd be leaving behind. Things you said or forgot to say, should be done this very day. Grudges are a heavy load, unconfessed sins, not forgiven. This sounds like too big a load, to try to take to Heaven. Youd better drop the grudges, confess your sins, before it is too late. Youd never make it with that load, through the Pearly Gate.

I can truly say that I feel much more at ease and all of my questions, so far, have been answered, said Hinds. I would like to thank the Bay, Frank lin and Gulf Healthy Start Coalition for continuing to promote this benecial event. Catering for the event was provided by Subway and 32 vendors set up ta bles, passed out free infor mation to the soon-to-be parents and donated door prizes. Healthy Start gives guidance to anyone with a baby up to three years of age. There are no eli gibility requirements and new parents can call 800895-9506 with questions. The Florida Association of Healthy Start Coalitions has 32 branches across the state all working to im prove pregnancy outcomes, reduce infant mortality rates and promote healthy growth and development in all children. WES LOCHER | The Star More than 15 vendors were on-site to provide important information to new and expectant mothers. START from page B1 all volunteers within the hospital. Our volunteers make the most signicant impact with their ef fectiveness at making people feel at ease. She reported that whether volunteers have no experience or are looking to further develop a specialty, theres a position available that will suit them. Vol unteers are trained to work each position and retrained annually to ensure that customer service across the hospital functions on the highest level possible. Training keeps us on top of possible problems, said Cross. Its my pleasure to come out and think I have helped someone. When bringing on new volunteers, Pendarvis looks for those who have excellent custom er or community service skills and a passion for helping others. Other requirements include a background check, TB screening and completion of a two-hour ori entation session. Russ, the hospitals very rst volunteer, said, Its a great facil ity with wonderful people. Wilson waited several years for a position to become avail able as the hospital grew and ul timately her patience paid off and she got her chance. I love it. We provide a service for the community, she said. Its a life-warming experi ence, added Cross. In addition to the fuzzy feel ings that come with the position, volunteers are awarded spe cial pins when they reach hours benchmarks of 100, 250, 500 and 1,000. Recently, thank-you let ters were sent to each volunteer from Chief Nursing Ofcer Kathy Chastain and hospital President Roger Hall which voiced their ap preciation for the time and dedi cation the volunteers had shown. Hospital Chaplain Bob Chan dler grew up in Port St. Joe and is the son of former commissioner Frank Chandler. A two-year vol unteer, he took up the position because of a personal goal to think more of other people than himself. Prayer is a big thing, Chan dler said. When a patient has someone to listen, pray with and uplift them, it means a lot to the individual. Former Wewahitchka Elemen tary teacher Esther Taunton, who volunteers in the gift shop, views her role as presenting goodwill. She understands that even if people dont purchase anything, theyre likely taking a break from an emotional situa tion and she does everything she can to make them feel comfort able and welcome. Whaley added, Its fright ening to come to the hospital. I feel useful and make others feel comfortable. As the volunteers shared their stories and experiences the smiles never faded from their faces. Conversations were often interrupted to say hello or give a wave to passersby, even those who were complete strangers. Each volunteer summed up their experience the same way, saying that it was rewarding and they feel that they have gotten more out of the experience than they have given.

As a result the Health Department announced last week that it would transition its primary care health services at its Wewahitchka facility to Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf. Initial plans have been made for Sacred Heart Medical Group to operate a new rural health clinic, including primary care services, lab services and radiology services, from the Health Department facility on State 22 in Wewahitchka. My goal is that this is as seamless a transition as possible, said Health Department administrator Marsha Lindeman. The action comes as a result of several factors, Lindeman said. Over the past ve years the Florida Department of Health has seen funding for primary care services shrink. For the Gulf County Health Department that has meant the loss of nearly $500,000. Lindeman noted it is a funding issue across the state. In addition, the Health Department lost its physician at the Wewahitchka Medical Clinic and has been unable to nd a replacement for two years. Meanwhile, funding was further hit by the loss of fees from the decrease of patients due to the loss of a physician, adding to the challenge of balancing a budget and still providing the needed level of services to the community. The cuts started before I came and we have tightened and tightened and tightened, Lindeman said. I came to the conclusion we simply could not maintain the level of services we have maintained. But, Lindeman noted, as she and her staff explored ways to whittle the budget, the commitment to the community remained. A guiding principle for us was to ensure that there was no reduction in the access to primary care services for any part of our communities, Lindeman said. We remain committed to protect See HEALTH A3SPECIAL TO THE STARDebbie Hooper with joebay.com snapped this aerial of the fun being had at the end of St. Joseph Peninsula last Saturday during the Memorial Day weekend.

Dredging, Capital City Bank top Port Authority agendaBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com The dynamics of developing the Port of Port St. Joe, port director Tommy Pitts told Port Authority members last week, have changed. The announcement the prior week that the St. Joe Company, collaborating with the Port Authority to develop the port, had entered into an agreement with Green Circle Bio Energy, Inc. that could lead to establishing a wood pellet shipping pipeline through the Port of Port St. Joe was, Pitts said, a game changer. The announcement, in the form of a Letter of Intent (LOI) contemplating formal agreements down the road for providing product for Green Circle and a pellet plant along the former AN Railroad, could mean that within two or three years wood pellets will be shipped through the port to overseas market. This has been going on over a year, said St. Joe representative Dane Caldwell. We are moving forward and trying to manage expectations. The key for the port is dredging, long a top priority that became No. 1 with a bullet with the St. Joe-Green Circle announcement. Any future involvement by the Port of Port St. Joe is contingent on achieving the maintenance dredging of the shipping channel to its federally-authorized depths. This not only helps the dredging cause but the rail cause, Caldwell said, alluding to a Florida Department of Transportation grant for rehabilitation of the rail line between Port St. Joe and Chattahoochee. Combine dredging with the rail, noted Port Authority chair Leonard Costin, and the link from Gulf of Mexico to I-10 is secure. This is de nitely a step in the right direction, Costin said. The Port Authority voted unanimously to alter its wish list to the county RESTORE Committee, which is considering recommendations for spending any funds that might ultimately come to the county through the RESTORE Act, which divvies out BP ne monies among Commissioners lend support to Port AuthorityBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com The Board of County Commissioners wants a return on its loan to the Port Authority, but they are optimistic the money will come. During Tuesdays regular bi-monthly meeting, Port Authority chairman Leonard Costin came to commissioners to request consideration on a $200,000 loan the BOCC made to the Port Authority two years ago. Though the first $10,000 payment is not due until next year, Costin asked if the county would consider extending the deadline for complete payment until 2021. The Port Authority is due to make annual payments of $10,000 for six years beginning in 2014 and then pay off the balance in a balloon payment in 2021. Costin said the Port Authority does not have the District keeps highperforming streak intactBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com Seven is indeed a lucky number this year for Gulf District Schools. For the seventh consecutive year the district is among a select few statewide named Academically High-Performing by the Florida Department of Education. Its a real kudo, said Sara Joe Wooten, Deputy Superintendent for Instruction. This is not an easy thing to get. Gulf District Schools were joined by just two other Panhandle districts on the list of 19 districts designated high-performing by the state Calhoun and Walton counties. The list also includes Charlotte, Citrus, Clay, Flagler, Gilchrist, Lee, Leon, Martin, Nassau, Palm Beach, St. Johns, Sarasota, Seminole, Sumter and Wakulla. To earn the designation, a school district must have been an A district at least two years in a row if slip-Meet you at the peninsula See DISTRICT A3 The Port Authority voted unanimously to alter its wish list to the county RESTORE Committee, which is considering recommendations for spending any funds that might ultimately come to the county through the RESTORE Act, which divvies out BP ne monies among states impacted by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill.

The writing is a bit off this year, said Sara Joe Wooten, Deputy Superintendent for Instruction. We have not had a chance to really dig down and look at all the numbers, but we have some things we will need to address. The FCAT writing component is administered to fourth-, eighthand 10th-graders. In fourth grade, students write in a narrative style; eighth-graders a persuasive essay; and in 10th-grade an expository essay. The emphasis the past two years has been on enhancement, putting down thoughts, Wooten said. It is more how you put down thoughts and more mature writing. District eighth-graders performed the best when compared to the state average and those students who graded out at least 3.5 or above on a scale that rises from 1 to 6. At Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School, the average score was a 3.2, compared to the states 3.3. At Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School, the average score was a 3.7. In Port St. Joe 90 percent of eighth-graders scored a 3 or above, 72 a 3.5 or above and 47 percent scored a 4 or above. The state averages were 79 percent, 54 percent and 35 percent, respectively. In Wewahitchka, 78 percent of eighth-graders scored 3 or above; 51 percent 3.5 or above and 35 percent at least a 4. Sophomores at both Junior-Senior High Schools fell below the state mean score of 3.5, with Wewahitchka averaging a 2.8 and Port St. Joe a 3.2. The state average of students scoring 3 or above was 85 percent in Wewahitchka it was 58 percent and Port St. Joe 76 percent. The state average of students scoring 3.5 or above was 62 percent in Port St. Joe it was 51 percent, in Wewahitchka 32 percent. At Wewahitchka 14 percent of 10th-graders scored 4 or above; at Port St. Joe the percentage was 23 percent compared to the state average of 40 percent. And among fourth-graders, the trends were similar to 10th-graders. Both Wewahitchka Elementary School (3.2) and Port St. Joe Elementary School (3.1) fell below the state average score of 3.4. Eighty-three percent of fourthgraders statewide scored 3 or above; in Wewahitchka it was 77 percent and 71 percent in Port St. Joe. Among fourth-graders around the state, 77 percent scored 3.5 or above; in Wewahitchka it was 47 percent and in Port St. Joe 42 percent. The state percentage of fourthgraders scoring 4 or above was 37 percent; seven percentage points higher than in Wewahitchka and 11 percentage points higher than in Port St. Joe. We are going to have to look at every aspect of these scores before deciding a course of action, Wooten said. For example, among 10thgraders, we will go back and look at how they scored as eighth-graders. We have challenges; we just need to have a clearer picture of where they are. Also released last week were reading and math scores for third-graders. They are critical in whether a student is held back a grade level. Wewahitchka Elementary finished with an average score of 204 in reading and 205 in math. In both categories, the state average district score was 201. Wewahitchka really slammed it in both reading and math, Wooten said. Port St. Joe Elementary had an average score of 200 in math and 198 in reading.By WES LOCHER229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@starfl.com After declaring a Reduction in Force at its last regular meeting, the Gulf County School Board stated that no layoffs would take place until the budget for 2013-14 school had been completed. Still faced with a shortfall of $868,249 for the upcoming year, the board plans to cut a minimum of 12 positions. During the Tuesday meeting, Gulf County Superintendent Jim Norton said that all decisions would be made by June 30 when the budgets are due. Gulf County Schools will outsource its custodial services for the next school year, bringing in GCA Services Group. After receiving a recommendation from Bay County Schools, GCA presented a detailed breakdown of its services to the board for consideration and ultimately was awarded the bid. GCA will begin its transition June 1 bringing in workers and equipment. The company will interview existing janitorial staff and begin training new hires. On July 1 the transition will be complete and GCA will manage all custodial services for Gulf County schools. A meeting will take place in the coming weeks between GCA and the current staff to detail the transition and answer any questions. Norton noted that Franklin County schools had also hired GCA for their upcoming school year. Were on the front end of trendsetting with this outsource, he said. After adjournment of the board meeting, Deputy Superintendent for Instruction Sara Joe Wooten commenced the graduation ceremony for the Gulf County Adult School. Wooten introduced Melody Nelson, teacher for the Port St. Joe Adult School, who just completed her first year with the school, and Billy Hooper, instructor for Wewahitchka for the last five years. A moment of silence was also given for Caroline Norton who passed away last week. She was a former teacher at the Adult Schools. The 14 graduates were recognized before the school board and the audience as they received their diploma and Superintendent Norton turned their tassel. It isnt the end of your life, Norton said, addressing the graduates, its just the beginning. A reception took place following the ceremony for the graduates along with their friends and family.Details of county schools reduction in force to be nalized in JuneFirst FCAT scores show gains and challenges Read more online at star.com

Commissioner Carmen McLemore said he could not support extending the payment, saying the money is federal economic development money that other small businesses could use to build their businesses. But, McLemore later noted, that payment was not due until next year and he, and his fellow commissioners, expressed a universal belief that something would likely change given recent movement on port development in the next year to leave the Port Authority in a position to meet the loan requirements. Im more confident today than Ive ever been about the port, said Commissioner Warren Yeager. I am confident there will be something on that site that will create jobs. The port is the best opportunity for Gulf County to create jobs. Commissioner Joanna Bryan said the initial action in loaning the money was flawed she again called for the board to adopt a more transparent and detailed agenda and that the board put few if any strings on spending the money. She said the Port Authority was moving in the right direction but the board should slow down and work with the port to facilitate the development of the port. Commissioner Ward McDaniel wondered if the Port Authority were to collateralize the loan the county is currently the second mortgage behind Capital City Bank on the barge terminal land currently the subject of foreclosure action such as the unencumbered Arizona Chemical land donated to the Port Authority. Costin said from his perspective an agreement could be reached to further secure the countys money, but said he would have to take the issue back to the Port Authority board next to gauge the feelings of board members. Costin added that when the Port Authority has the money it will not wait until 2021 to pay off the loan, but repay the funds immediately. We want to get the port going, we need to get the port going, McDaniel said. We are willing to work with you.Interlocal agreement /PSJRA moveCommissioners examined the 15 items on the eight-year-old interlocal agreement concerning the annexation by the city of Port St. Joe of WindMark Beach and how to address a stalemate with the city over one provision and the Welcome Center. The county has asked that the Port St. Joe Redevelopment Agency vacate the Welcome Center to accommodate the growing Tourist Development Council. The proposal would be to fund the move of the PSJRA to the Local Color building occupied by the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce. The PSJRA is currently paying rent for both spaces as the city has been unwilling to approve the move. The main sticking point for the city is a long-ago request to revisit a fire tax in order that it be divided between the three fire departments that respond to WindMark Beach. The tax was earmarked to pay for a fire station that as yet is not needed. In March, the city sent a request to the county that the interlocal agreement be rendered null and void and a new agreement be signed that would include a few remaining items, in particular division of the fire tax. The county is preparing its formal response. Ticking off the 15 items, county administrator Don Butler noted that the vast majority have been completed or obligations mutually removed. A few remain, the fire tax and a provision regarding charging the same water/sewer rates for county residents as those for city residents, and the county wants the city to convey the land the Welcome Center sits on to the county. The county also wants the city to take over fire response to the unincorporated of Oak Grove. This was put in place at a different time for the county, Yeager said of the interlocal agreement. Bryan agreed, but said times will change in another three or five years. She opposed rendering the existing agreement null and void and said she would like to work through the entire agreement in detail before making a decision on the fire tax. Yeager requested that county staff convey to the city an interest for a joint workshop to work through the agreement and Bryan asked that the countys response urge the move of the PSJRA until that workshop. We need to get the PSJRA moved, she said.RecyclingCommissioners approved, with McLemore dissenting, to spend up to $6,000 to establish a recycling pilot project at Salinas Park. Waste Management will provide a 24-foot can that will have openings for recycling plastic, glass, newspaper and cardboard. The effort is to have the pilot project span the summer months, the next four, to provide the raw data to establish the feasibility and challenges for a county-wide plan. Yeager said the city of Port St. Joe would like to join the county in the effort. This is a good pilot project for the future, McDaniel said. We are not going to know if it is going to work until we try it. SUPPORT from page A1ping to a B as Gulf County did two years ago, a return to an A the following year is required. As Gulf County is again a B district this year, it will have to earn an A for the just-completed school year to continue its streak of seven years. In addition to being an A district, the district may have no F schools, no material weaknesses in its annual nancial audit and must be materially compliant with all state and federal laws governing public schools. This designation allows us to use our own School Improvement Plans instead of the states which is more cumbersome, Wooten said. We can also set our start time instead of going by the state calendar. This is especially important in Gulf County because it allows the district to set its calendar in linkage to Gulf Coast State College to accommodate the growing number of students in dual-enrolled courses. This is a big thing for us, Wooten said. For a small district, this is a real kudo. DISTRICT from page A1and promote the health of Floridas residents and visitors in Gulf County. Enter Sacred Heart, which since opening a hospital and medical ofce building in Port St. Joe has seen solid growth over the past few years, expanding services with a broad reach into the community. We are honored to partner with the Florida Department of Health in Gulf County to continue providing primary care services in Wewahitchka, said Roger Hall, president of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf. The quality of healthcare available in a community is always reective of the quality of leadership in that community, and Gulf County is blessed with strong leadership that enables organizations to align strategically to positively impact the quality of life. The (Health Department in Gulf County) laid a solid foundation to build upon for healthcare in Wewahitchka, and we hope to meet and exceed the communitys expectations for such services for years to come. The Health Department, while handing over primary care medical services to Sacred Heart, will continue to provide basic services such as vital statistics, immunizations, WIC and some family planning. The schedules for those services are being worked out but will, generally, remain the same, Lindeman said. The overall goal of this collaboration is to ensure access to care for the Wewahitchka community, she said. Ensuring access to primary care is a growing concern for individuals and families in underserved rural populations. County Health Departments (around the state) are collaborating with local health care partners to develop cost-effective strategies for uninterrupted primary care. We are condent that Sacred Heart will strengthen the balance between the demand for care and capacity to provide care. The details of this transition plan are being nalized now and are anticipated for this summer. Lindeman said there would be a small reduction in workforce but could not provide exact numbers at this time. HEALThH from page A1 THE PORT ST.

Page 4 Thursday, May 30, 2013Dear Editor, I know that Im going to start catching a lot of crap from my friends in and around Lake Lanier, Georgia, but I think the time has come. I need to change my hometown on Facebook to Port St. Joe. I dont think my wife has quite reached that point yet, but I can tell she is getting close. This week will be our first anniversary of coming down here. One year ago my wife talked me into spending our 26th wedding anniversary down on the Forgotten Coast. We secured a small place for the week out Indian Pass way, packed up the dog, and made our way down. Its funny thinking back. As we slowed to a stop at the end of Hwy 71, we knew we were close. I looked down at my dumb phone and my Google Maps said, Hang a right. Faithful followers of technology, we obeyed the command in anticipation of ending our long drive. We drove. We drove some more and continued driving until our navigational partner said, Stop! You have arrived. My wife and I looked at each other. Can this be right? We pulled into a couple of establishments and asked where Hwy 30A was. We were met with confused looks and shrugged shoulders. We finally pulled into the bait and tackle shop by the bridge in Mexico Beach. I found an old fisherman who could help. He asked, Where exactly are you trying to get to, son? When I said, Indian Pass, he replied, My friend, youre a long way from home. I never realized how true his words would be. With his guidance, and the dumb phone turned off, we were on the road, going back the way we came. In reality it wasnt that far, but having to backtrack is never productive, always a waste of time. Or is it? We finally found our destination just a few miles past what we would later learn is a regional icon, The Indian Pass Raw Bar. Tired, weary, and thirsty from the trip, after unloading the car it seemed to make sense that stopping in for a cold one was a good idea. It turned out to be the very best in ideas. Long story short, we were made to feel at home. Theres that word again. Through a fortuitous series of events, and while eating some of the best baked oysters ever, we found ourselves in all the right company. We became immediate and natural friends with Randy and Barbie Everett from out on the cape. They invited us into their tight circle of friends and weve been ruined ever since. With their help and assistance, we made several trips back and forth in search of a second house. Each trip back expanded the network of friends even more, solidifying our intention to find someplace, somewhere to call our own. We found it in beautiful Port St. Joe, a little cottage we now call The Blown Inn. We couldnt be happier. I know it is a clich, but I guess it is true. Home is where the heart is. For me, I leave mine on the front porch of The Blown Inn every time we pull back out for Georgia. Im pretty sure, my wife does too. Looking back, I think about that wrong turn. I think about the time spent going the wrong way. I think about the old fisherman and his words. Then I think about how things might have turned out had we not ended up in Mexico Beach, how the timing might have changed, and how our night at the Raw Bar might have been different, changing the path that would ultimately bring us to where we are today. It was as I said, a fortuitous series of events, and it all started with a wrong turn. Maybe that phone isnt so dumb after all. Kirk S. JockellPort St. Joe Dear Editor: Is moving the Cape San Blas Lighthouse to Port St. Joe more important than domestic violence programs, homes for heroes, youth advocate programs, reading programs, back 2 hope summer programs, ventilators in nursing homes, veterans programs and providing jobs in Port St. Joe through supporting the Port of Port St. Joe? These are just a few of the items that were cut from the State Budget to make room for the $325,000 budgeted to move the Cape San Blas lighthouse to Port St. Joe. We were told that the cost to move the Cape San Blas Lighthouse to Port St. Joe was $350,000, when in fact, the City had submitted a Restore Act grant for $982,000. We were told that no taxpayer money would be used... where in fact does that $325,000 come from? We were told that moving it to the City was the safest place, when in fact the beach at Salinas Park is growing annually, and, the City plans to move the Lighthouse to a flood plain. The Florida Historic Lighthouse Association awarded a $20,000 grant to save the lighthouse no matter where it was moved. This money has already been spent on engineering how to put the lighthouse in the flood plain. Arent there better uses for our taxpayer dollars, and, the time spent by those representing us, such as the causes cut above? If you, the constituents of Port St. Joe had your choice of how to spend $1 million dollars, would it be to move the lighthouse? Or, are there other pressing issues the City should spend time and money on? It is this type of misinformation that led the Air Force to award the City the lighthouse in the first place. The original plan was an interactive park in Port St. Joe. Due to public input, that park is off the drawing board. I encourage you to contact your representatives and make your voice heard on the spending of this $1 million. What value does the Lighthouse bring to the City? None. It will only increase City costs to maintain this facility. Why move it to town? The Tourist Development Council has conducted a study which confirms that tourism will not be increased by having the Lighthouse in town. A replica or like structure could be built for hundreds of thousands of dollars less, which would actually accommodate more than a couple of people to climb to the top at a time? The Cape San Blas lighthouse is not designed for a tourist attraction with a lot of traffic. No original working lighthouse is, and, this one is difficult to navigate, has limited access, and possess a liability so that busloads of visitors from retirement homes or younger children are not an option. The lighthouse it is not self-sufficient and has to be subsidized whether the City or County has it. The County has spent approximately $40K annually in insurance, maintenance, grounds upkeep, etc. If the City residents are going to accept that obligation, what services are you willing to give up to do so? The real question again, is WHY? Why use taxpayer money to move the Cape San Blas Lighthouse to Port St. Joe when citizens have collected over $100,000 in private donations to keep the Lighthouse on the Cape at Salinas Park. The entire move of the lighthouse, the keepers cottages and the oil house to Salinas Park would be approximately $250,000. The beach is growing annually in this location. It is the Cape San Blas Lighthouse and has overlooked the Gulf of Mexico and St. Josephs Bay for over 160 years? Do we really need a lighthouse to overlook the City of Port St. Joe? Will it be an eyesore and look out of place? Moving the Lighthouse to Port St. Joe destroys the 160 years of historic value. Port St. Joe has very much history that is not capitalized on... why not focus on the history of Port St. Joe and leave the Cape history as it stands? If the true intent is to save the lighthouse, then all would agree that using private donations to move it safely to Salinas Park is a much better option that using $1M of taxpayer money to move the lighthouse to the City, for no returned value whatsoever. Those interested in saving $1,000,000 of taxpayer money and preserving the history of the Cape San Blas Lighthouse can make donations (anonymously if preferred) at www.gulfcountycca. com. No monies need be collected at this time, only your pledge, so that when the City cannot raise $1 million, or the people of Port St. Joe let their voice be heard, the Lighthouse can be saved and moved to Salinas Park before storm season allows Mother Nature to take her from us.Respectfully submitted, Julia CunninghamCape San Blas FloridaMr. Warrens talk was better than my writing! Letter to the EDITORMy New HomeThe Lighthouse move Miss Polly Rucker looked us over with a cautious eye. She had that uncanny ability to seem to be staring right directly at each one of us. As the senior class sponsor she had prodded and pushed us along all year. With graduation just days away, she was teary eyed as she proclaimed, This is a great milestone in your life. We nodded a collective agreement kind of like we did when she told us Macbeth was the best Shakespeare had to offer. We didnt know for sure she was right but we respected her enough that nobody was going to openly disagree with her. She had fussed, shaken her head in disbelief, laughed and caressed about as much literature into us as a body could in one year. She had earned our trust and our love. I can still remember the look on her face when Buddy Wiggleton asked her if Shakespeare had written any baseball books A couple of nights later, as we were sitting in the front rows looking very scholarly in our caps and gowns, W. O. Warren in his commencement address congratulated us on reaching this tremendous Milestone. I kinda drifted back to yesteryear as he went into that part about us being the future leaders of tomorrow. It didnt seem so much to me like a milestone. I hadnt done anything yet. I hadnt gone anywhere. I was still living at the house. My friends were still close by. I really didnt feel any change. Wed been talking about getting out of high school ever since the ninth grade. It just seemed more like a natural progression than any high water mark. As Mr. Warren moved into the variety of jobs and amazing opportunities that awaited us I got to thinking back to Leons beat up old Schwinn bicycle. I wanted desperately to wheel it up to the grammar school on my first day of the first grade. My feet just barely touched the petals. And the handle bars were really high but I was determined to learn how to ride that thing. It looked simple. Until you got about two cranks into it and the front wheel turned wildly to the right and you lost your balance! I crashed into the shrubbery by the side porch. I nosedived into the ditch behind the swimming pool. I fell on the gravel road in front of Archie Moores house. Whew! Was life just going to be one big wreck? But one magic late summer day I got it balanced just right and rode all the way out to Roy Manleys house. Not one living soul was there to validate, commemorate or even celebrate the moment with me. And listen, I couldnt even spell milestone back then but you cant imagine the feeling of accomplishment busting forth from my little heart! As Mr. Warren started in on the we didnt get here by ourselves section, my mind raced back to that first at bat in Little League. I was eight years old and scared to death. Ray Cunningham was a twelve year old giant pitching for the Rotary. He hit me with the first pitch high up on my left arm. It didnt kill me! And I managed not to cry as I wobbled down to first base. Now, folks, thats a milestone! Charlotte Melton was sitting a couple of seats down from me on this ostentatious occasion. I glanced over at that beautiful face and thought back to a cold after school day in the eighth grade. I dont remember how or why we were walking through the elementary school parking lot. I do remember it was right beside the monkey bars and Im not sure who kissed whom. But it was the first time for both of usand that would have to go down as some kind of milestone. At least it was for me! I cant say for dead certain positive exactly how Charlotte took it. Milestones, I figured, are mostly in the eye of the beholder! You take the time me and Ricky Hale camped out in the swampy area known locally as the Jarrell Switch Bottom. It seemed like a good idea in the broad daylight. We ate our Hormel Vienna sausages and Premium saltine crackers in silence. The darker it got the closer the swamp drifted toward us. Creatures, never seen up at the town square, began to wail and moan. The moon quit on us. Unseen visitors began to gnaw on our arms, neck and legs. A blood curdling yell that sounded a lot like my older brother shook the ground we were not sleeping on. Pride, stubbornness and a healthy dose of stupidity kept us out there all night. It was as about as big a milestone that I ever celebrated. Of course, once was enough! I intercepted a pass against Milan and ran it back for a touchdown. I did a backwards somersault with a half twist off the high diving board. I won a junior tobacco spitting contest at the Carroll County Fair.all milestones that seemed to eclipse this graduation exercise on a hot, late spring night in 1965. Of course, they didnt. Time and maturity have proven me wrong. Riding a bike and kissing Charlotte are important mind you, but they are not essential. Mr. Warren was right. Graduation is a pretty big deal. Those reaching that milestone should be congratulated. And, as Miss Polly would remind them all if she was still with us today, Its what you do afterwards that counts!

Live bait is abundant right now, so make the most of it!By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com Barn swallows are amazing yers and bene cial. Barn swallows are blue above with a peachy colored breast and darker orange on the throat and forehead. They have a long, slender, deeply forked tail. Females are slightly duller and shorter-tailed than males. Juveniles look similar to adults, but have much shorter tails. In late March, while walking my dogs on a mowed area near the airport, I found myself surrounded by about a half dozen barn swallows. They were swooping within a foot of the ground and so close to me I could almost have reached out and touched one. They were probably feeding on gnats or midges since it was dusk. They may have come so close to take advantage of insects my pack and I ushed while moving through the grass. They are known to follow agricultural equipment and cattle for that reason. Flies make up the majority of the barn swallows diet. Midges, mosquitoes and gnats are all ies. Barn swallows will eat any ying insect but prefer larger prey including beetles, bees, wasps, ants, butter ies and moths to midge swarms. However, larger insects are less abundant in early spring. The value of insectivorous swallows to farmers was recognized very early. It was illegal to kill them in ancient Rome. But they were driven to near extinction by hat-makers in the 19th century. The millinery trades impact on barn swallows prompted early conservationist George Bird Grinnells famous 1886 Forest & Stream editorial decrying slaughter of the little birds. That essay led to the founding of the rst Audubon Society. Happily, the barn swallow is once again among the commonest and most widely distributed bird species in the world and is found throughout the Northern Hemisphere in summer and over most of the Southern Hemisphere in winter. Barn swallows eat and drink on the wing. They forage in open areas including parks, ball elds, agricultural elds and beaches and over open water such as lakes, ponds and coastal waters. They range from sea level up to 10,000 feet. They are commonly seen over the grassy shoulders of the John Gorrie Bridge. According to Allaboutbirds.com, Barn Swallows once nested in caves throughout North America, but now build their nests almost exclusively on human-made structures. Today the only North American barn swallow population that still regularly uses caves as nest sites occurs in the Channel Islands off the California coast. Master birder John Spohrer said they commonly nest under bridges and docks in our area, since barns are few and far between. That means last year was not kind to these beautiful birds because high water from tropical storms Debby and Ivan washed away most of the nestlings and destroyed nests. Swallows nest in mud cups lined with grass and feathers and will reuse existing cups after changing out the soft lining and patching them with fresh mud. Barn swallows dont come to seed or suet feeders, but you might be able to attract them to your yard with ground-up eggshells or oyster shells placed on an open platform feeder. Swallows have lived in close association with humans for at least 2,000 years and, for this reason, they are the subject of much folklore. According to legend, a barn swallow consoled Christ on the cross. They represent freedom and hope. The swallows forked tail is said to have been struck by a lightning bolt when the swallow stole re from the gods to bring it to humankind. Another legend is that cows will give bloody milk if the swallows in the barn die or leave. Barn swallows also play an important role in maritime lore. English sailors had swallows tattooed on the chest or above the thumb on each hand. Each bird was said to represent 5,000 nautical miles traveled. It was also believed that, when a sailor drowned, the swallows carried his soul to heaven.DOT beauti cation funding approvedOn May 21, the Franklin County Commission voted unanimously to accept funding for roadside beauti cation from the Florida Department of Transportation (DOT). At the March 5 county meeting, County Planner Alan Pierce told commissioners $50,000 in DOT funding was available for roadside plantings to beautify the right of way along US 98. A $10,000 budget was earmarked for each county district. The DOT grant speci ed that money be limited to plants and plant support materials, like irrigation. Pierce speci ed that each site be furnished with irrigation to support the new plantings. The grant required that half the funding be used for large plant material, i.e. ve gallon containers or larger. Two of the sites chosen, US 98 and Hefernan Drive in Lanark Village and Island Drive in Eastpoint will be planted with large specimen palms. Three other sites, Carrabelle Beach Wayside Park, Seafood Workers County Park west of Apalachicola and the lawn of the county courthouse, designed by Nikki Millender, director of parks and recreation, will be planted with shrubs and perennials supporting migrating birds and butter ies. Pierce said the county has a year to complete the plantings and he anticipates planting will occur this fall.Oyster harvesting licenses now on sale The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is selling the Apalachicola Bay Oyster Harvesting License.

The Port St. Joe AAU Youth basketball team recently went 4-0, winning every game by double digits, in taking the championship at the Big Shots Basketball Tournament at Tallahassee Maclay High School. Port St. Joe played against several Tallahassee and Cairo, GA area teams. We won the championship game 43-11 and all but one game we won by more than 20 points, said Kurnitsky. We did a real good job. This is the fourth tournament title the team which was missing two players for the tourney has won over the past year as a squad. I often have to split them up during the summer, but when this team plays together, and I was missing two last week, they have not lost a game in more than a year, maybe 15 to 18 games, Kurnitsky said. It is a good group. The team, comprised of Jackel Yarrell, Davien Welch, Drew Jones, Jarrett Browning, Kendre Gant, Jasmine Thomas and Trey Sanders, reminds Kurnitsky of some of the former Port St. Joe teams of years past. They know how to run, Kurnitsky said. They look like the old Port St. Joe teams, playing defense and running. They really pass the ball around really well and they can really score. But mostly they play defense and they run, run. The AAU team, along with several other grade levels, are coached by Kurnitsky throughout the summer, part of a feeder program he has created for Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School. Kurnitsky will also be conducting a basketball skills camp this summer. More information on the camp will be included in an upcoming edition of The Star.SPECIAL TO THE STARPSJ AAU hoops team wins tourney Staff Staff ReportThe St. Joseph Bay Golf Club will host a free golf clinic each Friday morning in June, taught by St. Joe Golf Clubs professional, Ethel Bardsley.

LocalA8 | The Star Thursday, May 30, 2013states impacted by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill. The Port Authority now lists $5 million for dredging as its top request with an equal amount for settling a mortgage with Capital City Bank moved to the second position. The Green Circle announcement, Costin said, was of more importance than any disappointment with Gov. Rick Scott for vetoing $2 million from the state budget earmarked to address that mortgage on the Port Authoritys barge terminal parcel along the Intracoastal Waterway. The reaction to the veto was disappointment, but it does not change the mission, Costin said. The appropriation had been sought by Capital City Bank to pay down a portion of the $4 million mortgage on the parcel and had been supported by lawmakers in the region. The Port Authority, the city of Port St. Joe and County Commission chair Tan Smiley, among others, lent their support in a Protect Our Port campaign. Port Authority attorney Tom Gibson said a hearing in the foreclosure proceedings had been postponed until July 17 while the state budget process played out. Each side is seeking a summary judgment in its favor; the bank on the basis of a mortgage well in arrears and the Port Authority based on whether the land was properly mortgaged in the rst place. There were, board member Patrick Jones said, issues on both sides with no clear outcome. But I think I speak for the board in saying that there is not any interest on the boards part not to pay our obligations, Jones said. Gibson suggested it would be worthwhile to reengage Capital City before July to see if there was room for an agreement. Board member Eugene Rafeld said any conversation with Capital City might need to be part of a broader conversation. The big thing that needs to happen is we need a quick answer on the dredging, Rafeld said. Without dredging the channel its not going to work. Rafeld said the dredging could have benet for beach nourishment as there would be much quality sand brought up in the process. That made the Gulf County Tourist Development Council a stakeholder. He suggested bringing all the parties state, federal, legislative together, including Capital City Bank which has a clear investment in the port to succeed, to help lobby the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on dredging. The St. Joe Company and Pitts have been lobbying the Corps and state for more than a year. A FDOT grant is available as well as federal funds the two combined total about $1.4 million. Much if not all of that would be expended in permitting. St. Joe and the Port Authority are exploring ways to leverage funds for local match to larger grants to facilitate completing the dredging. The best chance for the port, for the community, for the bank, to get what they want is the dredging, Jones said. The way we are going to get revenue is to dredge that channel. Pitts said the partners would pursue dredging on parallel planes to pursue permitting and to pursue funding. We will pursue every dollar we can, Pitts said.Master Plan updateThe Port Authority took the final step in formalizing its master plan update with a public workshop immediately following last weeks regular meeting. This a time of dynamic change in the effort to develop the port and wed like for the public to be involved, Pitts said. The plan updates the 2008 master plan each plan must be updated every five years, Pitts said and essentially examines the next five years and beyond while accounting for changes, such as the increase of the planning area under the collaboration with St. Joe and the donation to the port of the former Arizona Chemical plan. The planning area is now 300 acres, Pitts said. As the last phase of the update, the public comment from last weeks meeting and any written comments received are reviewed and incorporated or not and the Port Authority will adopt the plan at its next regular meeting. The plan will then be transmitted to the city of Port St. Joe for incorporation into the citys comprehensive plan. The lone public comment last week came from Cape resident Bob English who said hed spent 25 years in planning for inland ports and had never undertaken the process for a deepwater port. He praised Pitts, who did the work in-house with assistance from St. Joe, for his execution of the update. 315WilliamsAve.PortSt.Joe,FL|(850)229-6600 25%OFFin-stockSorrelliF,J|-SummerOpenHouse &TrunkShowat Enjoyrefreshments&RegistertoWinSorrelliprizes!

ANSWER ON PAGE B6 Newborns in Gulf County get a healthy startBy WES LOCHER229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star .com The Healthy Start Coalition for Bay, Gulf and Franklin counties held its annual Baby Shower event to provide new and expectant parents with information to promote positive birth outcomes and set them up for success. In attendance were 67 expectant and new mothers who gathered information on topics of interest which included car seat safety, safe sleeping, substance abuse, parenting and childbirth, breastfeeding and the dangers of shaking an infant. It can happen so easily, said Healthy Start Director Sharon Owens, you dont even realize it. During Thursdays festivities at the Centennial Building, hosted by Healthy Start Coalition Program Coordinator Kelly ByrnsDavis, many door prizes were given out and staying in line with the baby shower theme, several fun games were played including a take on The Price Is Right where contestants attempted to guess the value of a baby-related item. The mother who wagered the closest guess took the item home. New and soon-to-be fathers werent left out and participated in diaper-changing games. Sarah Hinds, health education program manager for the Florida Department of Health in Gulf County attended the baby shower as both a supporter and as an expectant mother. She praised the event for connecting new mothers with resources dedicated to helping them succeed with their children. As a new mom-to-be, I spend hours researching healthy tips and reading expert opinions, Hinds said. It can feel overwhelming when recommendations from materials are contradicted. Panama City OB/GYN Dr. Gregory Morrow spoke to those in attendance about the importance of smoking cessation, the health risks associated with tobacco use and the dangers it can pose on unborn and young children. WES LOCHER | The StarDoor prizes including gift baskets, toys and gift certi cates were given away during the event.See START B5 By WES LOCHER229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star .com In the three years since the opening of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf, 124 volunteers have donated more than 31,500 hours, equal to $697,479 in time value. While this seems like a lot of minutes, hours and seconds, volunteers Sylvia Whaley, Sherrill Russ, Bonnie Wilson and Juanita Cross cant imagine doing anything else. Having been with the program since day one of the hospitals operation, theyve watched the campus grow and have helped thousands of patients and their family members feel better simply by greeting them with a smile as they came through the doors. Its been a wonderful experience, said Whaley, who initially read the call for volunteers in the newspaper. One of my passions is that I love working with people. Sacred Heart is a lovely place to be. Volunteers are staffed seven days a week with shifts that run from 8 a.m. to 9 pm. Most volunteers work a four-hour shift once a week in various positions that include front desk, gift shop retail, interacting with patients and guiding them to the appropriate wing of the building, administrative duties, public relations and even miscellaneous projects and pilot studies.

The event will celebrate the marina industry and its role in boating. Vendors including the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce, Gulf County Tourist Development Council and the St. Joseph Bay Humane Society will be on hand with information and free giveaways. The marina also will play host to the Nautical Flea Market. Bluewater Outriggers, Dalys Dock and Dive and other marina customers will be selling and bartering boating items at a discount. The Coast Guard Auxiliary will be onhand to conduct free vessel checks. These professional inspections will ensure that boats have adequate and up-to-date safety gear and that the vessel is safe for the water. Last years Marina Day was canceled because of weather, but marina bookkeeper Krissy Beatty hopes that this years event will be the rst of many. We want to build awareness, she said. We want people to be comfortable with the marina and be informed. The goal is to educate boaters on how to operate safely and legally on the water.

Usually when a patient hears that pronouncement, the shock leaves her or him in a benumbed state. You are taking in the words, but the reality of the disease and the inherent decisions that will need to be made are not quite comprehensible yet. What kind of cancer do I have? What stage is my cancer in? What is my prognosis? What kind of treatment is recommended for the cancer I have? Do I need a second opinion? What are my chances of cure, and what is my long term survival rate? These are all questions you need to ask your physician, but there are so many other questions that come to mind as you process your diagnosis and decide upon treatment plans, where to have your surgeries, radiation and/or chemotherapy. And all of these important decisions dont even address the mental anguish the patient is experiencing as each decision is faced. Only someone who has been through the same ordeal can truly relate to what the patient is feeling. That is the reason for a support group, a unit of people who have experienced the same thing. A support group for cancer survivors, those undergoing treatments, and their families and caregivers is being organized. The support group will meet at 5:30 p .m. ET on  the rst  Monday of the month, upstairs at Capital City Bank Everyone is invited to attend.

If youre married, would you show more love, to your husband or your wife? Would you be nice to your kids, when you come in tired from work? Or would you come in snapping heads off, and acting like a jerk? Im sure a lot of things would go through your mind. Mostly of what, youd be leaving behind. Things you said or forgot to say, should be done this very day. Grudges are a heavy load, unconfessed sins, not forgiven. This sounds like too big a load, to try to take to Heaven. Youd better drop the grudges, confess your sins, before it is too late.

I can truly say that I feel much more at ease and all of my questions, so far, have been answered, said Hinds. I would like to thank the Bay, Franklin and Gulf Healthy Start Coalition for continuing to promote this benecial event. Catering for the event was provided by Subway and 32 vendors set up tables, passed out free information to the soon-to-be parents and donated door prizes. Healthy Start gives guidance to anyone with a baby up to three years of age. There are no eligibility requirements and new parents can call 800895-9506 with questions.

START from page B1all volunteers within the hospital. Our volunteers make the most signicant impact with their effectiveness at making people feel at ease. She reported that whether volunteers have no experience or are looking to further develop a specialty, theres a position available that will suit them. Volunteers are trained to work each position and retrained annually to ensure that customer service across the hospital functions on the highest level possible. Training keeps us on top of possible problems, said Cross. Its my pleasure to come out and think I have helped someone. When bringing on new volunteers, Pendarvis looks for those who have excellent customer or community service skills and a passion for helping others. Other requirements include a background check, TB screening and completion of a two-hour orientation session. Russ, the hospitals very rst volunteer, said, Its a great facility with wonderful people. Wilson waited several years for a position to become available as the hospital grew and ultimately her patience paid off and she got her chance. I love it. We provide a service for the community, she said. Its a life-warming experience, added Cross. In addition to the fuzzy feelings that come with the position, volunteers are awarded special pins when they reach hours benchmarks of 100, 250, 500 and 1,000. Recently, thank-you letters were sent to each volunteer from Chief Nursing Ofcer Kathy Chastain and hospital President Roger Hall which voiced their appreciation for the time and dedication the volunteers had shown. Hospital Chaplain Bob Chandler grew up in Port St. Joe and is the son of former commissioner Frank Chandler. A two-year volunteer, he took up the position because of a personal goal to think more of other people than himself. Prayer is a big thing, Chandler said. When a patient has someone to listen, pray with and uplift them, it means a lot to the individual. Former Wewahitchka Elementary teacher Esther Taunton, who volunteers in the gift shop, views her role as presenting goodwill. She understands that even if people dont purchase anything, theyre likely taking a break from an emotional situation and she does everything she can to make them feel comfortable and welcome. Whaley added, Its frightening to come to the hospital. I feel useful and make others feel comfortable. As the volunteers shared their stories and experiences the smiles never faded from their faces. Conversations were often interrupted to say hello or give a wave to passersby, even those who were complete strangers. Each volunteer summed up their experience the same way, saying that it was rewarding and they feel that they have gotten more out of the experience than they have given.
